          Jeepers (It's Christmas) in July Giveaway Hop   


Welcome to Jeepers (It's Christmas) in July blog hop! Sponsored by Aroma Foundry, giving one lucky winner a $25. Gift Code. Hosted by  MamatheFox.com, and co-hosted by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did it. Brought to you by Mom To Grandma! After my entry form you will find many more bloggers with great prizes for you to win, Enjoy and Good Luck!

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We have had the opportunity to receive some essential oils from Aroma Foundry for a review.



So many people are turning to essential oils. Essential oils are liquid extracts that are distilled from plants, flowers and trees. It often takes the entire plant or more to produce a single drop of oil, making essential oils very concentrated.

I received Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint Essential Oils from Aroma Foundry. I found, compared to some other places that sell Essential Oils, Aroma Foundry has very affordable prices. Other places can get costly.



Eucalyptus Essential oil is 100% pure and all-natural. This Essential Oil is sourced from the United States, hand bottled in California, and hand-inspected and boxed at their facility in Santa Barbara.

Eucalyptus Essential oil is highly effective for treating respiratory problems, such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, pneumonia and even tuberculosis. It is good for colds and flu, hair nourishment, odor removal from air and more.

Tea Tree oil was first extracted in Australia. Aroma Foundry sticking to their native theme, sourced their 100% pure and all-natural Tea Tree oil from down under.



The Tea Tree, which has become my favorite, can do just about anything. It's Antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. Can you imagine the list I could come up for the uses of Tea Tree oil. If your going to invest in essential oil, I would recommend putting Tea Tree oil on one of your first orders.

Peppermint Oil is 100% pure and all Natural as well. A hybrid of spearmint and watermint. It has a reputation for bringing calmness and serenity when inhaled. Grown in Washington in the United States, smelling it creates a sensation like a cool northwestern wind. The smell of this is amazing! Use it in a difuser.

Lavender Essential Oil is one of the most useful, unique, and popular essential oils. Aroma Foundry gets theirs in the United States; when you catch a whiff it'll recall lavender flowers you walk by in a planter or garden. Steam distilled from the violet blue flowers, its 100% pure and all natural and is also 100% made from lavender oil.

I have used these essential oils in my difuser to make the house smell amazing. I have used them to replace some of my chemical cleaners. I love them and I don't think I'll be going back to some of those cleaners. Aroma Foundry makes getting these essential oils at a cost that wont hurt our budget.

Aroma Foundry is a Santa Barbara, California company founded by a team with a goal to create quality All Natural products that let Mother Earth show off what she can do. They put the customer first, and rest assured they use all of our products ourselves before we offer them to the public.

          Mengapa Yahudi?   

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. Henry Kissinger, Joseph Lieberman dan Madeleine Albright (bekas-bekas Setiausaha Negara AS); Alan Greenspan (bekas pengerusi Rizab Persekutuan AS di bawah Reagan, Bush, Clinton dan Bush); Maxim Litvinov (bekas Menteri Luar Soviet Union); David Marshal (bekas Ketua Menteri pertama Singapura); Isaac Isaacs (bekas Gabenor Jeneral Australia); Benjamin Disraeli (negarawan dan penulis Britian); Yevgeny Primkov (bekas Perdana Menteri Rusia dan bekas jeneral KGB); Jorge Sampaio (bekas Presiden Portugal); Herb Gray (bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri Kanada); Pierre Mendes (Perdana Menteri ke-143 Perancis); Michael Howard (bekas Setiausaha Negara British); Bruno Kreisky (bekas Canselor Austria) dan Robert Rubin (bekas Setiausaha Perbendaharaan AS).

Dalam dunia media, orang Yahudi yang terkemuka ialah Wolf Blitzer (CNN); Barbara Walters (ABC News); Eugene Meyer (Washington Post); Henry Grunwald (Ketua Editor Time); Katherine Graham (penerbit The Washington Post); Joseph Lelyyeld (Editor Eksekutif, The New York Times) dan Max Frankel (The New York Times).

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? Tambahan lagi, Hollywood sendiri diwujudkan oleh orang Yahudi. Antara pengarah dan penerbit, 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) - semuanya adalah 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.

Michelin guide 2017 - feature1

Michelin Guide 2017 includes 11 newly awarded restaurants Odette received two stars in this year’s Michelin Guide. The bulk of this year’s list of Bib Gourmand restaurants is made up of the same spots as last year’s inaugural list, so we were expecting the Michelin Guide 2017 to be same same but different compared to the Michelin Guide 2016 too. Well, in the list that just came out, 11 new names were awarded one Michelin star, and two restaurants – Forest 森 and Terra – dropped out of this year’s guide. The rest are pretty much the same as last year’s, with Waku Ghin getting two stars instead of one this time.  Here are all the restaurants that were awarded tonight, with the newcomers in bold. Restaurants with one Michelin star Alma by Juan Amador, modern European Beni, modern French Braci, Italian Candlenut, Peranakan Cheek By Jowl, modern Australian Chef Kang’s Kitchen, Chinese (Cantonese) Corner House, contemporary Crystal Jade Golden Palace, Chinese Cut, Steakhouse Garibaldi, Italian Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle, street food Iggy’s, modern European Jaan, modern French Imperial Treasure Fine Teochew Cuisine, Chinese (Teochew) Labyrinth, modern Singaporean Lei Garden, Chinese Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & […]

He is not at all dog aggressive but doesn t really have a nice grasp of ca etiquette which sometimes causes minor difficulties for him with our other dogs. However he has no issues whatsoever with our cats. Tripp is a bit particular about his food and seems to prefer canned food over kibble. He is nice on the leash comes when called enjoys short walks and is a very precious sensitive dog. He deserves an understanding family who will give him a nice home....

          Indian-Americans and Spelling Bees: Adding some nuance   
It's that time of the year again. The only night of the year when desi people dominate ESPN primetime in the United States. The Scripps National Spelling Bee. Yet again, the winner...or rather co-winners..came from the families of Indian immigrants.

This has been happening for over a decade now, and every year, the aftermath of the Bee in Indian media and Indian and Indian-origin social media follows a similar pattern. There are a few think pieces about why Indian-Americans are so good at spelling bees. Some folks go all uber-patriotic extolling the superior virtues of our intellectual tradition and what not (cue...Bhaaaaarrrraat maaata kiiii.......). And some folks sneer, indulging in a mild form of communal self-loathing. I don't have kids but my close Indian-American friends who do are very emphatic about how they will not make...or even let their kids participate in something as nerdy and inherently uncool as a spelling bee.

Through Twitter I came across this post that quotes Varun Grover's interview in the excellent excellent documentary I Am Offended (do watch if you haven't) which references spelling bees. That blog, and Varun in that documentary, are making a larger point about how the Indian education system is centered around rote learning, stifling creativity and basically preparing "middle managers". And that the success in spelling bees is a symptom of that.

While I agree with Varun and Auctorly on the larger problem, I don't think it is correct to link spelling bees to that problem. I see where they are coming from, and the reason for that is a couple of myths about spelling bees in general which merit some attention.

Myth #1 Spelling Bees are all about memorizing thousands and thousands and thousands of words, and regurgitating them on stage.

I used to think the same way, but it's not really that way. A few years ago, I had a long chat with a student of mine (I am a college professor) who in her school days had participated in the spelling bee. She didn't win, but talked to me about how much fun it was, and ended up giving me a different perspective on this activity that I too once sneered at. Then I read some more about it, watched the documentary Spellbound, talked to some more students over the years, and I think it is necessary to add some nuance to how we view the "sport".

Spelling bee as a contest is more about pattern recognition than just rote memorization. Don't get me wrong. Of course it is important to know and remember many many words to participate in a spelling bee. But the same is true of scrabble. Or crosswords. Or trivia quizzing. Heck, memorization is key even in chess. A serious chess player will have thousands of moves and games memorized.

Just like all those activities/sports, spelling bee is about, yes, having a memory bank of relevant information, but at the top level, it is often about recognizing patterns, working out clues, and then formulating an answer by accessing the relevant information from your brain.

You know how the kids ask for meaning, language of origin, use it in a sentence etc etc? It is not for theater. It has important information, and many times, can even help you make an educated guess at the spelling of a word you've never heard of by using what is basically pattern recognition.

Let me give you an example about how I, without memorizing any words, was able to correctly guess one of the words in the final this year. The word was chremslach. When it was first uttered, I thought it would start with "Kr" and maybe end with "che" or "kh". Then I heard that the word was Yiddish. And the meaning was a kind of passover pastry. Instantly I thought of a pastry that a Jewish deli near my house excels at - rugelach. The end sounded the same. So it had to end in -lach. And the different pronunciations of the starting syllable suggested chr not Kr. The repeated usage by the moderator further confirmed what I had in my mind. A pattern emerged and voila. There the spelling was.

I felt thrilled at having worked it out before the contestant answered. It was a thrill similar to the one I get as a trivia quizzer when I crack a cleverly framed Final Jeopardy style "workout-able" question. Or the thrill I get when I crack a particularly cryptic clue in crosswords.

The aforementioned student kept stressing about how much fun the whole thing was for her. She said it was a form of solving puzzles. And I saw what she meant. I asked her, isn't it boring to memorize thousands and thousands of words. She said no, she LOVES words (sidenote - she always wrote the most well-crafted and thoughtful term papers in my class). And again, I see her point.

When you enjoy any activity built on pattern recognition so much that you want to seriously compete in it, you don't think of the underlying memorization as a drab chore. I like to play scrabble semi-competitively, and it is fun for me to have those cruel 2 letter words memorized so I can gain advantage on the board despite not having great tiles. And I'm sure poker players don't think of probability calculations as mundane.

Myth #2 These desi spelling be winners will most likely end up as middle managers, code coolies, cogs in the corporate machine....just total drones.

Although it seems like Indian-Americans have been winning the bee for ages, in reality, it's been less than two decades that it has been happening consistently. So the sample of winners is not statistically significant, but from whatever I read in "where are they now" type stories, I saw very few, if any, ending up in those drone type jobs.

A lot of them were in some form of research, which to me, as an academic researcher, makes sense. Research is like the rigorous grown-up impactful form of pattern recognition that is built upon a deep memory bank of knowledge about a subject. A bunch of them were doctors and lawyers. One was a professional poker player (again, pattern recognition and memory). And so on. I even googled a few names of winners and always found that the person was doing something really cool.

Maybe a systematic study will throw up more details.

Myth #3 We Indians are just awesome at English and we are such brainiacs and we have the bestest education-centric culture so we are awesome at Spelling Bees

While the first two myths were in the self-loathing category, this one is in the uber-patriotic category. I have no problem with Indians or Indian-origin feeling proud or elated or whatever at this dominance, although I am personally from the Bill Hicks school of thought when it comes to patriotism.

But let us dispel with this notion that there is something really inherently culturally genetically special about Indians that our kids just go to America, show up at spelling bees, and start winning them left and right. There is actually a pretty strong and well-organized training infrastructure that is making all this possible. Remember that these contestants train with the rigor and discipline of athletes. It is not done in isolation, but requires broader support like with any sport or activity.

What you see on ESPN is the culmination of a year of smaller contests, local spelling bees, practice bees, and other such events on the local circuits. And there's a kind of feedback loop that forms. Successive generations build on the success of previous generations. Legacies and even "dynasties" are created and inspire some to adhere to it. I could keep going, but I came across this article that explains the quasi-institutional reasons behind the dominance in more detail.

If some other community starts taking such a deep interest in the sport and organizes in such a serious grassroots way, other communities could start dominating too.

One thing to note is that the winners have all been kids of Indians who migrated to the United States. Recent Indian immigrants, much like recent immigrants of other communities, tend to socialize more with their compatriots and do so in a very community-based way, with associations and groups and mandals and so on. But second generation Indian-Americans are more assimilated in the American mainstream. So when they grow up and have kids of their own, they are not as plugged into the Indian-American groups and associations as their parents were.

So you don't see many (or even any?) third generation Indian-American children winning the spelling bee or even making it to the national finals, because they don't have automatic access to that community-based infrastructure.

The best way to end this post is to quote a now-grown-up Nupur Lala, the star of the Oscar winning documentary who arguably started this Indian-American phenomenon.

“Having watched Spellbound, I realized that several of my competitors weren’t any worse than me ability-wise, but they didn’t have the same advantages—economic privilege, educational background, family dynamics,” she says. “I know that played a big, big role in my success. As a 14-year-old, I really thought I was one of the best spellers out there. In hindsight, I think, yeah, I was a very good speller, but I also had some of the best preparation and resources out there. I had a mom who had a graduate degree in linguistics. Parents who have literally hundreds of books in the house, and who were very motivated to help me succeed.”


          Australia - Walkin' on Sunshine in Barbados   
Every once in a while, test cricket says to other sports "Who's your daddy? I am!" Today is one such time.

Five days ago, if you had said to me, "Australia will win the Barbados test", I'd have responded, yeah, probably...for sure... so?

The beauty of test cricket is its ability to engineer the most bizarre dramas, replete with unexpected reversals, and above all, often making the the audience switch their loyalties.

Five days ago, I was sure that Australia, the side that whitewashed the kinda-mighty Indians, would make mincemeat of West Indies. It didn't even seem like a test series worth following on Cricinfo. But follow it I did. Once you love test cricket, you can't help but follow test cricket, no matter how foregone the conclusion might seem.

Then came the first major twist in the tail. The Windies, marshaled by that old fox Chanderpaul, posted a 400+ score. It's not often that a team loses after scoring 400+ in the first innings. Even better, the Windies bowlers got rid of the Aussie top and middle order fairly soon.

Holy crap! The Windies were set to get a substantial first innings lead. And even win the test! Go West Indies, I thought. Yessss! Schadenfreude is a cool-sounding word, but it truly finds its meaning when the Australian cricket team is losing. Go Windies!

And then test cricket showed why it's everyone's daddy. The Aussies, reverting to a sickening old habit, fought back. Their tail wagged, chipping away at the deficit. Their 10th wicket partnership was going strong, reducing the deficit to a mathematical factoid. Heck, they might even wipe off the deficit.

And then.... huh! Clarke decalred! What!??! He declared, with his 10 wicket pair going strong and the deficit still 43! He declared to, ostensibly and obviously, have enough time to actually win the test.

I have generally disliked the Aussie team. And I don't like Michael Clarke. But this decision won me over. What a declaration! True, his 10th wicket was at the crease, so to posterity, it might not seem like much. But in the context of the match, it was quite a doozy.

Turns out Clarke shocked not just us fans, but the Windies batsmen too. They promptly collapsed in a heap. And suddenly, it seemed like Australia might win this. It wasn't easy. Sure, it seemed easy - 192 in 60-odd overs. But the fading April light meant there was no chance to get more than 50 overs. On a 5th day pitch.

Then came the inevitable sad flashback. India at Dominica last year. The #1 test team in the world. Set 180 in 47 overs. And India decided to play it safe and accepted a draw after a half-hearted attempt. As an Indian, the whitewashes in England and Australia hurt, but didn;t come close to the shame and outrage I felt for the Dominica cop-out.

Surely Clarke with his brave declaration wouldn't pull a Dhoni and play it sickeningly safe? He better not. Aussies better win this.

And that's the weird journey I made in a handful of days. From "Oh, Aussies will definitely win" to "Wow, WI are batting well." to "WI may get the lead! Wow! WI can win this!" to "Oh no! Oh damn! Aussies might save the test" to the final leap "Please please please Australia, win this!"

For that is the beauty of test cricket. It can shake your convictions and loyalties. The action in the middle can make you forget your prejudices and switch sides to support the side playing truly in line with the game's true character. If you've seen Rocky 4, you might remember how the Russian spectators stop cheering for Ivan Drago and start cheering for Rocky, going against all their loyalties and convictions. Well, that was a (rather badly) scripted movie. This is the reality of test cricket.

By the 3rd session on day 5, I found myself, for the first time in well over a decade, cheering for an Australian win. It may seem like an odd, even fickle reversal to cheer the side that I was so dead set against just 5 days ago.

But that's what test cricket does. And did. To me. My heart raced as I groaned at every Australian wicket and cheered every big hit from the Aussies. I kept trying to calculate how long sunshine would last before the umpires closed the proceedings for bad light. And I kept hoping the Aussies would make it.

Aussies - the pre-match favorites, and Windies the underdogs. But test cricket when it is in its element, can make you cheer for the favorites as if they're the underdogs.

Finally, Australia won. They walked on sunshine. And have most likely ushered in another era of self-belief and dominance that will be the bane of other teams in the next decade.

          Warner: Why is US Soccer absolved?   

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has told The Times that the Garcia report into corruption around the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids is “not even worth the paper it has been written on” and questioned why U.S. Soccer was absolved after he and Sepp Blatter met President Barack Obama.

The report, produced by American lawyer Michael J. Garcia in 2014 but only released in full this week, said the England 2018 World Cup bid team was found to have “accommodated or at least attempted to satisfy the improper request”of executive committee members, including Warner, ahead of the voting in 2010.

The United States’ effort to host the 2022 World Cup, meanwhile, was found to have generally followed FIFA’s bidding rules.

Warner, who was arrested and charged as part of the FBI’s probe into money-laundering in 2015 and then banned from taking part in any football-related activity for life, told the English newspaper in an email that he continues to “sleep very soundly” following the report’s release.

He wrote in an email: “For me the report is not even worth the paper it has been written on and of course not the whopping fee paid for it either. As it relates to me personally, I continue to sleep very soundly at nights for nothing in the report implicates me personally in any sleaze.”

The investigation found that Warner had requested England 2018 to find his “adopted son” Richard Sebro, a man with no obvious football credentials, a job with Tottenham, then at Wembley, before moving to Aston Villa.

Other favours granted to Warner were the waiving of a £168,000 debt owed to the Football Association by the Jamaican Football Federation and the sponsorship of a £36,000 Caribbean Football Union gala dinner.

Undisclosed “favours and benefits” were also granted by the FA to a team Warner owned — Joe Public Football Club.

Warner told The Times that all the requests he made to the English FA were “for other persons or entities and never for my family or me.”

He also questioned the decision to absolve the U.S. bidding team, citing a visit that he and then FIFA president Blatter had made to the Oval Office in 2009.

He wrote: “I have also taken note that the American investigator has absolved the US Soccer Federation and I ask myself how come? Was this not the same USSF that facilitated a visit to the White House for Sepp and me to meet Obama? How do you characterise that?

“Was this not the same USSF that arranged for [then Confederation of African Football president Issa] Hayatou and his Ex Co members to do the same? But then again this is the US that I guess determines if you fall, live or die.”

Meanwhile, the Serious Fraud Office in the United Kingdom is analysing the Garcia report.

The decisions to award Russia the 2018 World Cup and Qatar the 2022 edition have been dogged by allegations of bribery and corruption since they were made in December 2010.

An SFO spokesperson said: “The SFO is reviewing the Garcia Report. We can make no further comment at this stage.”

Confirmation of the SFO’s interest comes 20 months after its director, David Green, told MPs of potential money-laundering offences, including a payment of 500,000 Australian dollars (£295,000) made by the Australia 2022 bid committee to former CONCACAF president Warner, which may have gone through London.

At the time, Green, who was giving evidence to the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, said the SFO “cannot touch FIFA with the Bribery Act as things stand” as it became law in July 2011 and most of the World Cup allegations took place before then.

In October 2015, the SFO had a team of five going through more than 1,600 documents provided by the FA relating to England’s failed 2018 bid.

          Now, Windies Women beaten by India   

TAUNTON, England –

Once again, the Caribbean side struggled with both bat and ball to slump to second loss in four days and extend their losing streak on tour to seven straight including warm-up matches, leaving their campaign at the crossroads.

Sent in at County Ground, the Windies rallied to 183 for eight off their 50 overs with Hayley Matthews top-scoring with 43, Afy Fletcher hitting an invaluable unbeaten 36 and Shanel Daley, 33.

At one stage, they were slumping at 121 for seven in the 40th before Fletcher at number nine provided late resistance with bold striking.

India’s slow bowlers turned the screws on West Indies with off-spinners Deepti Sharma (2-27) and Harmanpreet Kaur (2-42), along with leg-spinner Poonam Yadav (2-19) all finishing with two wickets each.

In reply, India stormed to their target courtesy of a superb unbeaten hundred from left-handed opener Smriti Mandhana who ended on 106 not out, while captain Mitahli Raj chipped in with 46.

The Windies struck with the fifth ball of the innings when fast bowler Shamilia Connell had Punam Raut caught at the wicket of a top edge without a run on the board.

And when off-spinner Stafanie Taylor bowled Sharma for six at 33 for two in the eighth, the game became wide open as a contest.

But 20-year-old Mandhana carved out her second one-day hundred, hitting 13 fours and two sixes in a 108-ball knock, as she put on a match-winning 103 for the third wicket with Raj whose innings came from 88 deliveries and included three fours.

When Raj mis-hit a full toss from off-spinner Matthews to Fletcher at mid-off in the 34th over, Mandhana combined with Mona Meshram (18 not out) in an unbroken 45-run, fourth wicket stand which saw India to their second straight win.

They lie second on four points in the eight-team standings behind defending champions Australia Women who are also on four points, with West Indies languishing sixth without a point – along with Sri Lanka Women and Pakistan Women.

Hoping to turn the page on a tame batting effort in their opener against Australia last Monday, the Windies managed only more of the same.

Rookie Felicia Walters scratched around 27 balls for her nine before nicking a swish at a wide delivery from left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht and going caught behind at 29 for one in the seventh over.

Matthews, who looked in fine touch, then dominated a 40-run second wicket stand with captain Taylor who made 16, as West Indies eased to 69 without further loss.

The right-handed Matthews struck seven delightful boundaries on both sides of the wicket in an attractive 57-ball innings before perishing in the 19th over to a tame return catch off Sharma.

With her gone, West Indies lost their way as five wickets crashed for just 22 runs. Taylor and Deandra Dottin (7), both appearing in their landmark 100th ODI, never looked the part and each soaked up a plethora of deliveries without hitting a single boundary.

Taylor faced 42 balls before going run out by Mandhana’s direct hit at the non-striker’s end in the 21st at 70 for three and Dottin laboured for 48 deliveries before picking out long-on with Yadav in the 34th over, with her first shot in anger at 91 for five.

In between, Merissa Aguilleira missed a charge at Yadav and was smartly stumped for six at 80 for four in the 28th over. When Kaur removed both Kyshona Knight (5) and Chedean Nation (12), the Windies were in strife at 121 for seven but Daley and then Fletcher arrived to rescue the innings.

The left-handed Daley struck five fours off 37 balls while the brave Fletcher faced just 23 deliveries and cracked five fours – three of which came in the final over off Kaur which leaked 18 runs.

West Indies have little time to turn their form around as they take on South Africa in Leicester on Sunday. (CMC)

          Wimbledon 2017 Draw: Bracket, Schedule and Preview of Men and Women's Event   

World No. 1 Andy Murray could face Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarter-finals of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships after being drawn in the upper end of the men's singles bracket on Friday.

Murray will face either a qualifier or a lucky loser in the first match of his Wimbledon title defence, and the competition's official Twitter account teased some of the prospective fixtures in the final eight:

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic will be looking to put some of this year's disappointments behind him as he prepares to open his campaign against Martin Klizan.

In the women's singles, top seed Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova were drawn in the top half of the bracket, while Simona Halep and Elena Svitolina took their spots in the bottom half.

Ben Rothenberg of the New York Times provided a look at the men's draw in full:

Read on for a more detailed breakdown and preview of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships' first round following Friday's draw announcement.

Preview

Murray may be ranked as top seed in the men's singles entering his Wimbledon title defence, but spirits are hardly at their strongest after he exited this month's AEGON Championships in the opening round.

The Scot has appeared in two ATP finals this year, and although he's yet to add any silverware to his collection in 2017, coach Ivan Lendl is confident regarding his charge's chances, per BBC Sport's David Ornstein:

Djokovic will be another high-profile star seeking at least some redemption at SW19, although world No. 44 Klizan is among the more difficult fixtures he could have been handed outside the seeded ranks.

The Serb's run through England's capital won't be an easy one, either, as Reem Abulleil of Sport 360 illustrated he won't have to wait long before the competition really begins to heat up:

Seven-time champion Roger Federer will begin his search for an all-time record eighth Wimbledon crown against Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov, with hopes high after enjoying something of a resurgence in 2017 so far.

Nadal has exhibited a rejuvenation of monstrous proportions in recent months and tightened his grip as the French Open's all-time most successful star after adding an unprecedented 10th Roland Garros title to his trophy cabinet.

But the clay season has made way for grass, meaning the Spaniard may no longer be the frontrunner to run riot as he has done at recent competitions.

The women's bracket also features a selection of tantalising potential fixtures as early as the round of 16, as Jose Morgado of Portuguese daily Record posted the women's singles bracket in full:

Serena Williams' pregnancy means the reigning champion will not return to defend her Wimbledon crown, but as was shown by Jelena Ostapenko's shock victory at the French Open, women's titles seem there for the taking.

An open field has emerged in Williams' absence, and Johanna Konta worsened world No. 1 Kerber's 2017 woes with a win at the AEGON International on Thursday, per WTA Insider:

Konta beat Kerber and French Open-winner Ostapenko in the same day to prove her Wimbledon credentials just days prior to the tournament getting underway in earnest, and she'll face Su-Wei Hsieh in the first round.

However, that's provided she's fit to feature in the competition. BBC Sport reported on Friday that Konta was forced to withdraw from the semi-finals in Eastbourne due to a back injury she suffered from a fall during her clash with Kerber.

It's also been reported fourth seed Svitolina is an injury doubt heading to London after she picked up a foot concern at the AEGON Classic, per the official WTA website. She's due to take on Australian Ashleigh Barty in the first round.

At least one American will drop at the first hurdle after Shelby Rogers was drawn against compatriot Julia Boserup.

          Johanna Konta Withdraws from Eastbourne Semi-Final with Spine Injury   

British tennis star Johanna Konta has withdrawn from the semi-finals of the 2017 Aegon International in Eastbourne, Sussex, due to a back injury just a day after defeating world No. 1 Angelique Kerber to advance to the last four. 

Konta was scheduled to face Karolina Pliskova in her semi-final fixture to continue her preparation ahead of Wimbledon, but the official WTA website confirmed on Friday that she will be unable to continue.

Pliskova clinches a walkover victory as a result and advances to the Eastbourne final, where she will meet either Caroline Wozniacki or Heather Watson.

Konta recovered from a heavy fall to beat Kerber in their quarter-final clash on Thursday, after also defeating French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko earlier in the day to seal two morale-boosting wins.

It's particularly disappointing news for the world No. 7 considering it's fallen in such close proximity to Wimbledon, which is set to get underway on Monday.

WTA Insider illustrated the form Konta has shown of late:

As fate would have it, Konta's fall occurred with the Briton at match point, 6-3, 5-4 up against Kerber. Eurosport UK provided footage of the tumble in question:

Although the 26-year-old rallied to finish off her opponent at the time, playing through the pain won't be an option for Konta any longer as she takes her leave of Eastbourne hoping for a full recovery in time for Wimbledon.

It remains to be seen how possible that will be given the competition is now just days away, but the Guardian's Jacob Steinberg provided some hopeful quotes from the star on Friday morning:

Konta has been drawn opposite Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei in the first round of this year's Wimbledon, which looked as though it might be her best-ever chance at major silverware.

A run to the Australian Open quarter-finals for the second year in succession earlier in 2017 showed she's ready to contend with the world's best, but an ill-timed back injury could see her Grand Slam progress halted for now.

          Yuma, "Programmer" Usia 10 Tahun Asal Indonesia yang Dipuji Bos Apple   

KOMPAS.com - Kehadirannya sebagai pembuat aplikasi di usia yang masih belia, 10 tahun, menarik perhatian CEO Apple Tim Cook dalam Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) di San Jose (AS) dua minggu lalu dan ternyata Yuma Soerianto murid sekolah Middle Park Primary School di Melbourne tersebut berasal dari Indonesia.

Worldwide Developers Conference diselenggarakan setiap tahun oleh perusahaan teknologi raksasa Apple, menjadi ajang berkumpul mereka yang berkecimpung para pembuat aplikasi, dan bagi Yuma Soerianto ini adalah untuk pertama kalinya dia menghadiri konferensi tersebut.

Minggu lalu, sebelum acara resmi berlangsung, Yuma sempat bertemu dengan CEO, bos tertinggi Apple Tim Cook yang terkesan dengan aplikasi yang dibuat oleh Yuma dalam perjalanan di pesawat antara Melbourne ke Amerika Serikat.

Pertemuan Yuma dengan Cook diliput oleh media, dan dengan cepat berita tersebut menyebar ke seluruh dunia.

Tim Cook tertarik dengan aplikasi yang dibuat Yuma yaitu aplikasi untuk membantu orangtuanya menentukan harga sebuah barang.

Harga ini sudah termasuk harga sesuai penjual lokal dan pajak, serta disajikan dalam bentuk yang sudah dikonversi ke mata uang yang digunakan.

Ini menurutnya akan berguna ketika mereka pergi berbelanja suvenir untuk oleh-oleh dari perjalanan mereka.

"Keren sekali, hebat," komentar Cook setelah menyaksikan Yuma mendemokan aplikasinya.

"Dan kamu membuatnya di pesawat dalam perjalanan dari Australia ke AS? Wow. Kamu bisa membuat aplikasi dalam hitungan jam. Saya terkesan. Saya tak sabar melihat karyamu selanjutnya," puji Cook, demikian lapor media minggu lalu.

Melihat nama keluarga Yuma yaitu Soerianto yang berbau Indonesia, ABC Australia Plus Indonesia, yang dikutip KompasTekno, kemudian berhasil mendapatkan kontak ayahnya Hendri Soerianto yang menemani perjalanan Yuma ke Amerika Serikat.

Hendri mengukuhkan bahwa dia berasal dari Indonesia

"Saya dulu berasal dari Jakarta, dan kami sudah berada di Australia selama delapan tahun. Kami tinggal di Singapura selama ini dan Yuma lahir di sana. Kami pindah ke Australia ketika Yuma berusia tiga tahun," kata Hendri dalam percakapan e-mail dengan wartawan ABC Australia Plus Indonesia, Sastra Wijaya.

Yuma adalah anak tunggal keluarga tersebut dan diberi nama Yuma karena "kami ingin namanya mudah diingat, dan nama yang global jadi bukan nama berbau Barat ataupun berbau Timur. Kami percaya kami adalah warga dunia."

Bertemu dengan Michelle Obama

Yuma mulai suka belajar coding sejak usia enam tahun karena menurutnya PR di sekolah kurang menantang.

Dia menciptakan aplikasi pertamanya tahun lalu dan saat ini sudah punya lima aplikasi yang dipajang di App Store.

Lima aplikasi buatan Yuma yang ada di App Store saat ini adalah Let's Stack, Hunger Button, Kid Calculator, Weather Duck, dan Pocket Poke.

Apa pengalaman yang menarik dalam menghadiri Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) ini bagi Yuma?

"WWDC sangat mengesankan. Teknologi baru yang ada sangat menakjubkan."

"Ini untuk pertama kalinya saya mendapatkan bantuan profesional, dari orang-orang yang betul mengerti mengenai coding," kata Yuma.

Sebelumnya, Yuma hanya belajar coding dari YouTube, karena menurutnya tidak ada sekolah di Australia yang mengajar bagaimana melakukan coding untuk membuat aplikasi.

"Hal baru yang saya pelajari adalah ARKit (Augmented Reality) dan SceneKit (3D Graphics Engine) karena semuanya baru bagi saya."

"Orang-orang yang saya temui banyak di antaranya adalah para petinggi Apple dan tentu saja Tim Cook, CEO Apple. Saya juga sempat berbicara dengan Michelle Obama." kata Yuma lagi.
Yuma sekarang memiliki channel di YouTube dengan nama Anyone Can Code, dan Anda bisa mengakses linknya di sini.

Dalam wawancara dengan program Radio National ABC, Yuma mengatakan bahwa dia ingin membuat aplikasi yang bisa mengubah dunia, dan juga dia ingin membagi ilmunya mengenai coding kepada siapa saja yang ingin belajar.

"Siapa saja bisa melakukan coding, bila kita sabar melakukannya dan senang melakukannya." katanya.

Ayahnya Hendri yang juga bekerja di bidang IT mengatakan Yuma memang ingin menyebarkan ilmunya kepada yang lain.

"Akan bagus sekali bila dia bisa memberikan inspirasi kepada orang Indonesia lainnya untuk belajar coding," kata Hendri.

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

While the very fabric of space-time warped and undulated over the Trump-Morning Joe conflict (we’ll get to that), Republicans in the House finance subcommittee worked up a scheme to neutralize the Johnson Amendment. The proposed rule would deny the IRS the funds it would need to investigate Johnson Amendment violations…for churches only. That’s right, no mention of other nonprofits, no mention of other houses of worship. We joined a big coalition of groups opposing the measure, and I did the equivalent of marching up and down, toddler-Bart-Simpson style, making noise about it.

But you know, the fabric of space time. Undulating and whatnot. About that:

After Trump did his dumbass Trump thing that he does, Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to justify the president’s behavior as some kind of proportional response to bullying (????), and when asked who she could point to as a role model, she defaulted to God. That’s fine, but you’d think a couple human role models would be useful in a pinch. Maybe keep a couple of those in your back pocket. Just a thought.

More fun was the op-ed by Mika and Joe themselves, where they threw so much shade it looked like an eclipse. They said Trump wasn’t mentally healthy enough to watch Morning Joe, and made the charge that Trump had blackmailed them with the threat of a negative National Inquirer article.

David Roberts at Vox tries to come to grips with what the hell is wrong with the man, and why it’s so hard to figure it out:

Trump defies our theory of mind because he appears to lack a coherent, persistent self or worldview. He is a raging fire of need, protected and shaped by a lifetime of entitlement, with the emotional maturity and attention span of a 6-year-old, utterly unaware of the long-term implications of his actions. ... Politicos and journalists need a story in which Trump’s stumbling and grasping can be construed as a savvy media strategy, a “distraction” from some other wrongdoing he has going on, or a “pivot” from his current omnishambles. Those are all versions of political maneuvering with which they are familiar. They need for Trump to want things, to be after things, to have a plan. ... But there’s no there there.

CFI Los Angeles chief Jim Underdown recoils at the utter plausibility of The Handmaid’s Tale, and laments that the star of the TV version, Elizabeth Moss, is herself a Scientologist:

What doesn’t fit is that the Church of Scientology could be a central character in The Handmaid’s Tale TV series. For decades we’ve been hearing real-life stories from ex-Scientologists that sound like they could be plots in the series.   

Nikhil Sonnad at Quartz does a great service, cataloguing how Alex Jones’ Infowars store and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop store and the Moon Juice store all sell the same snake oil.

Speaking of Alex Jones (if we must), he had a guest, Robert David Steele, who said this:

This may strike your listeners as way out but we actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20 year ride. So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.  

Now, Jones does seem to distance himself from this idea a tad (“Well I don’t know about Mars bases”), but don’t give him too much credit! Or any! Because then he says this:

I know they’ve created massive, thousands of different types of chimeras that are alien lifeforms on this earth now. 

Just in case you’re wondering, NASA denies the allegation. Well, of course they would. Pfft.

In Bizarro America, aka Canada, a new survey shows that the electorate would prefer an atheist, gay, or transgender prime minister over an evangelical Christian. 

CFI’s new intern Andy Ngo thinks back to the Orlando massacre one year ago, and how the discourse about it has been too diffuse, asking, “While it is imperative to prevent and condemn discrimination against Muslims, why does that have to come at the cost of speaking openly about religious fundamentalism, particularly Islamism?”

South Africa will no longer have single-religion public schools. (A group lobbying for this change, the Organisasie vir Godsdienste-Onderrig en Demokrasie, has the greatest acronym ever: OGOD.) 

Australian homeopathics company Brauer is being investigated for promoting an ebook that advocates the use of homeopathy to treat babies and toddlers.  

Theologian and sociologist Peter Berger has died at the age of 88. I don’t know much about most of his work, but his book The Social Construction of Reality blew my mind when I read it in college a million years ago.

The Morning Heresy: “I actually read it.” - Hemant Mehta

 


          You May Wear Pants   

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

Cardinal George Pell is the third-most powerful official in the Catholic Church as head of the Vatican’s finances. And he’s just been charged multiple sexual assaults in his native Australia. I think it’s time to play this song again.

Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky signs into law a bill allowing Bible classes in public schools. I’m sure that not far behind are classes on the Qu’ran, the Bhagvat Gita, Dianetics, and the Books of Bokonon. Any day now.

ProPublica reveals “a trove” of Facebook’s internal documents showing its secret guidelines for determining what is and is not hate speech, and thus able to be censored. And some of it is frankly disturbing:

One document trains content reviewers on how to apply the company’s global hate speech algorithm. The slide identifies three groups: female drivers, black children and white men. It asks: Which group is protected from hate speech? The correct answer: white men. ... White men are considered a group because both traits are protected, while female drivers and black children, like radicalized Muslims, are subsets, because one of their characteristics is not protected. 

Adi Robertson at The Verge notes that Facebook’s task is more or less impossible:

If the company decides to promote a positive social environment without taking clear political sides, it will trend toward a faux neutrality where “hate” is any negative opinion, punishing people who criticize the status quo. But if it admits to an ideological bent, it will have to start formulating political stances on which groups worldwide deserve the most protection from hate. The more social responsibility it accepts, the more liable it is for failing to police its users, and the more power it has to control speech — not just comments to other users, but personal timeline posts or photographs. 

Oh, hey hey hey, make sure you dig the latest Cause & Effect newsletter. It’s got international news, SCOTUS news, and not all of the news is bad!

CFI’s Benjamin Radford is on the panel for a discussion about psychics (along with a bunch of alleged psychics) on WNPR’s Colin McEnroe Show.

Another “psychic,” Michelle Marks of Dixon, Illinois, is arrested for “exploitation of an elderly person and multiple weapons charges.” Wow she was busy!

Researchers at the Catholic University of Louvain wanted to see if atheists in Western Europe were more or less closed-minded than the religious. And that’s what they found, more or less:

Atheists tended to show greater intolerance of contradiction, meaning when they were presented with two seemingly contradictory statements they rated one as very true and the other as very false. They also showed less propensity to be able to imagine arguments contrary to their own position and find them somewhat convincing.

A group of scientists and other figures sign on to an initiative called Mission 2020, intended to get greenhouse gas emissions to “curve downward” by 2020, because failing that, the goals of Paris become unattainable. While it’s noble, I am skeptical. Especially after my Point of Inquiry interview with Elizabeth Kolbert earlier this month.

Undaunted by my kind of despair, a “global covenant of mayors” pledging to meet the goals of the Paris accord has brought on board more than 7400 cities.

Cleve Wootson at WaPo introduces us to Michael Tate Reed, the guy who keeps ramming his car into Ten Commandments monuments, as he did in Arkansas yesterday:

[In 2014] He was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and released under an agreement that required him to continue treatment. He sent a rambling letter to the newspaper apologizing and describing the voices in his head and his attempts to recover from mental health issues. 

Speaking of which, Joseph Frankel at The Atlantic looks at how the phenomenon of “hearing voices” in one’s head—which is sometimes what makes people think they’re psychic, and others say they’re psychotic—may be more common than once thought, and also may be more controllable:

These experiments suggest that auditory hallucinations are the result of the mind failing to brand its actions as its own. Watching what the brain does during these hallucinations may clarify how that works, and what differences in the brain create these experiences. ... Drawing a parallel with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the [researchers] are interested in the extent to which the psychics they saw “might occupy the extreme end of a continuum” of people who hear voices. 

The Mormon Church is taking bold strides into the latter half of the 20th century, offering paid maternity or parental leave to church employees and (hold on to your butts) allowing women to wear pants.

A California health department report says that 111 people have chosen to take their own lives in the first six months of the state’s right-to-die law. 

Uranus isn’t just odd because its name makes you chuckle (which is why I must pronounce it “YURen-uss,” not, you know, the other way). It’s on a crazy 98-degree axis, and its magnetic shield is all wobbly.

When there’s somethin’ strange…in the neighborhood…who you gonna call? The Royal Thai Police Force! They ain’t afraid o’no phi pob. 

Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter is a fun, scientific, educational museum experience for the whole family! Oh wait, the city wants them to pay a “safety assessment fee”? I meant to say, it’s a ministry. So, sorry. Exempt. Phew! I mean, “amen.”

My home state of Maine gets its first case of measles in 20 years. Oh god I hope it’s not me!

          Marriage is a covenant   
In a 2015 pastoral letter on the same-sex marriage debate, themed ‘Don’t mess with marriage’, the Catholic Bishops of Australia observed that “At this time in history, there is much discussion about the meaning of marriage”. In Malta, although certain laws were introduced that directly or indirectly changed the meaning of marriage, unfortunately, there was little debate both in Parliament and in the social arena. The government has now declared it will introduce ‘same-sex marriage’. I am convinced that if a debate takes place, the stand of the Catholic Church might be of great help to all those of goodwill who would like to make the right choice for the common good. Justice requires us to treat people fairly and, therefore, not to make arbitrary, groundless distinctions. Thus, we must treat like cases alike and different cases differently. It, therefore, follows that if the union between a man and a woman is different from other unions then justice demands that we treat that union accordingly. Marriage is an institution designed to support people of the opposite sex to be faithful to each other and to the children of their union. This truth is not only based on faith but also on...

WHAT MAKES OUR FABRICS SO SPECIAL?

Westfalenstoffe leave their fabrics as untreated as possible making them exceptionally sturdy. Easy-care and wrinkle-resistant treatments are avoided ensuring fabrics maintain their natural stability. As a general rule, synthetic resins are not used.

All our fabrics are Öko-Tex100 certified meaning that toxic substances like allergenic dyes are not used at any stage of processing and so our fabrics present minimal health risks.

All our organic fabrics are guaranteed to meet the internationally recognised Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) meaning that the cotton is from certified organic sources. It also means that no substances considered harmful to health or the environment are used in their production like formaldehyde, azotic dyes or heavy metals.

As well as being free from harmful substances. Westfalenstoffe fabrics exhibit very little shrinkage and textiles are coloured using reactive dye and printing process. In short this is important as dyes permeate the fibres instead of merely resting on the surface as in pigment printing. This ensures a high level of rub fastness while leaving the fabric soft and much more durable.

Payroll tax is taxation scheme based on Australian State and Territory and it works in Australia. It’s all calculations are self analyzed. Fringe benefits, superannuation and wages are important points for its calculations. Each territory and state has set a percentage value which is important in calculation, along with the specific threshold for the taxation to be payable. In every July an annual reconciliation is performed for the receptive fiscal year in which this ratio and threshold value is indexed bi-annually or annually payments that are made to the different office employers monthly. In simple words this tax has been imposed on the salaries of employees and it’s also called payroll service Australia.

          Prisoner of War: A Novel of World War II   
33198196Spradlin, Michael P. Prisoner of War: A Novel of World War II
June 27th 2017 by Scholastic Press
E ARC from Edelweiss Above the Treeline

Henry has had a difficult life on the family farm in Minnesota. After the death of his mother, his father took up drinking and abusing him, so at the age of 15, he signs up for the Marines, with his grandfather vouching for his age. He survives basic training and is sent to the Philippines. Just as his commander is ready to send him home for being underage, the Japanese attack. Henry (nicknamed "Tree"),along with his friends and protectors, Gunny and Jamison, must try to stay alive during the bombings, and when the Japanese take them prisoners. Henry has some problems with anger management, and makes lots of bad choices, angering a guard he refers to as "Scarface" and getting beaten regularly. He does manage to save an Australian soldier, and the alliance with this group helps when Gunny is taken for "questioning". Japanese prison camps were brutal, and Tree ends up spending several years there. The prisoners show a lot of resourcefulness when it comes to outsmarting guards, obtaining medicine and food, and helping each other, but conditions are such that not everyone will survive.

There are a lot of World War II books, and yet I always need more for my readers who find it fascinating. A lot of books set during this time period take place in Europe, but there is a small number set in the Pacific theater. This is an excellent addition to books such as this author's Into the Killing Seas, Salisbury's The Hunt for the Bamboo Rat and Lynch's The Liberators, as well as excellent nonfiction titles like Farrell's Pure Grit, and Weintraub's No Better Friend. I've been reading  middle grade World War II fiction for twenty years, and those are the only Pacific theater titles I can muster, so there is a need to more!

Spradlin's book is especially effective because it takes into account what younger readers want, which is action, adventure, and violence, with what the adults handing them the books want, which is a certain depiction that war is not a great option. Henry's enlistment is done out of desperation over his situation at home, which was not unusual at the time. While the story doesn't glorify war, it does celebrate the men who banded together to help each other survive, and showed the triumph of human will under impossible circumstances. The other thing that young readers like is anyone undermining authority, and the prisoners certainly managed to get the better of their captors on many occasions. I imagine that Hogan's Heroes was wildly popular with 12 year old boys when it was on television, for just this reason.

The historical details are rich and interesting; it had never occurred to me that the guards at the prisons camp were the less successful soliders, but it makes sense. The heat and humidity of the jungle, the food rations or lack thereof, and the historical background are all effectively portrayed, and will hold up to the scrutiny of the most well informed war buff.

Books about war are not my favorite, and Tree certainly makes a lot of choices with which I wholeheartedly disagree, but Prisoner of War will get the most reluctant reader avidly turning the pages to see what fate holds for our underage protagonist.

32713131Ure, James. W. Seized by the Sun: The Life and Disappearance of World War II Pilot Gertrude Tompkins
July 1st 2017 by Chicago Review Press
E ARC from Edelweiss Above the Treeline

While I am intrigued by this "Women of Action" series, this read more like a scholarly tome than a middle grade book. I'm glad to know about these, and will keep them in mind for my REALLY hard core war buffs, but will most likely not purchase and will rely on students getting this from the public library. If I had an unlimited budget, or if World War II was officially in our curriculum, I'd buy it.

From the Publisher
"Of the 38 Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) confirmed or presumed dead in World War II, only one--Gertrude "Tommy" Tompkins--is still missing. On October 26, 1944, the 32-year-old fighter plane pilot lifted off from Mines Field in Los Angeles. She was never seen again.

Seized by the Sun is the story of a remarkable woman who overcame a troubled childhood and the societal constraints of her time to find her calling flying the fastest and most powerful airplane of World War II. It is also a compelling unsolved mystery.

Born in 1912 to a wealthy New Jersey family, Gertrude's childhood was marked by her mother's bouts with depression and her father's relentless search for a cure for the debilitating stutter that afflicted Gertrude throughout her life. Teased and struggling in school, young Gertrude retreated to a solitary existence. As a young woman she dabbled in raising goats and aimlessly crisscrossed the globe in an attempt to discover her purpose.

As war loomed in Europe, Gertrude met the love of her life, a Royal Air Force pilot who was killed flying over Holland. Telling her sister that she "couldn't stop crying, so she focused on learning to fly," Gertrude applied to join the newly formed Women's Air Force Service Pilots. She went on to become such a superior pilot that she was one of only 126 WASPs selected to fly fighter planes. After her first flight in the powerful P-51 Mustang, her stutter left her for good.

Gertrude's sudden disappearance remains a mystery to this day. Award-winning author Jim Ure leads readers through Gertrude's fascinating life; provides a detailed account of the WASPs' daily routines, training, and challenges; and describes the ongoing search for Gertrude's wreck and remains. The result of years of research and interviews with Gertrude's family, friends, and fellow WASPs, Seized by the Sun is an invaluable addition to any student's or history buff's bookshelf."

          Ricominciamo Parte II   
Il letargo estivo e' finito e si ricomincia al galoppo forzato. Forza che c'ho un fracco e mezzo di robbbba da sputtanare.

Cominciamo con Settembre, va..

INTO THE WOODS (09.09.10)
Ultima passeggiata nel bosco, stavolta dall'ultimissima fila. Senza lamentarci perche' a) si vede benissimo anzi meglio che dalla seconda fila, e b) non piove a dirotto.
Tutti bravi, tutti belli. (tranne la Dalli che e' pessima e dovrebbe tornare in Australia al piu' presto possibile..)
Salutiamo finalmente Hannah che ci spupazza un po', ci dice sempre troppo della sua vita privata (le ho chiesto come stava il fidanzato, mi ha risposto che si sono lasciati e il perche' e il per come e di chi era la colpa e delle magagne sotterranee del loro rapporto. Really? REALLY?! Non poteva solo dire 'bene, grazie', come tutte le persone normali? Tanto mica e' amico mio, e non l'avrei certo letto su OK Magazine, perche' mi ha dovuto imbastire sto ambaradan?), racconta delle lusinghe del Maestro Sondheim (che pare le abbia detto 'Sei perfetta, non cambiare niente della tua Strega'..) e sfolgora di bellezza e dorkaggine allo stesso tempo. Bless.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (10.09.10)
Andiamo tutti a vedere questa simil panto giusto per dire 'io c'ero'.
Piattaforma del fu Eurostar a Waterloo trasformata nella sperduta campagna inglese. La ricca famigliola che sembra uscita da Mary Poppins cade in disgrazia causa capofamiglia accusato di spionaggio (come no, a chi non capita?), e si trasferisce momentaneamente in culandia per risparimare qualche soldo (ma con la governante, perche' non sia mai che la signora Banks o whatshername si tiri su le maniche e actually lavi o cucini..poveri si, ma con dignita', eccheddiamine!) e i tre ragazzini si accozzano alla locale stazione ferroviaria, scassando la minchia a destra e a manca e combinando casini a mazzi.
Il gran clamore suscitato dall' ZOMG C'E' UNA VERA LOCOMOTIVA IN SCENA e' abbastanza ingiustificato quando sei nel mezzo di una platform a Waterloo, in verita'..
Fa piu' impressione quando il treno immaginario arriva di corsa senza rallentare e l'illusione viene creata con un semplice audio assordante e un carrello spargifumo che corre lungo la piattaforma. Il treno non esiste, ma per te e' passata una locomotiva enorme di gran carriera e giureresti di averla vista davvero.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (Matinee, 17.09.10)
Prima tappa nella ridente Bolton (se fa' pe' di'..) per vedere Boo.
Madoh.
Che botta allo stomaco a digiuno. Suckerpunch dritto al plesso solare. Che brutta roba. Cioe' splendido, ma terribile.
A rendere tutto ancora piu' difficile c'e' il fatto che Boo e' di una bellezza sconvolgente, non l'ho mai vista piu' bella...e Kieran fa Stanley quasi umano, quasi lo capisci, quasi gli vuoi bene..ed e' so fucking WRONG poi vedergli fare quello che fa e dover sopportare la scena dello stupro (quasi under played, a dir la verita', poteva andare peggio..)
E poi Blanche da di matto e viene portata via, e Clare ha il suo giacchino "blu Della Robbia" e i capelli sciolti in una marea di onde e riccioli ginger e va via con la sua solita grazia innata e il suo passo lieve.
E a me si spezza il cuore in duemila pezzetti.
La faccia che fa quando ci vede e gli abbracci e le strizzate che ci da valgono sempre la pena.
I genitori di Kieran erano molto impressed dal fatto stesso che fossimo venute apposta a vedere lo show. Psh, roba di ordinaria amministrazione per noi.
Ma poi anche sti cazzi dello show, diciamocelo. Io sono venuta per farmi stritolare dalla mia bellissima Boo, e basta. E se il prezzo da pagare e' rimanere incastrata a parlare per dieci minuti con Kieran delle differenze tra questa produzione e quella della Donmar, che ben venga.
E mentre stiamo li' che chiacchieriamo, e ci facciamo i cazzi suoi e lei si fa i nostri, e le dico di mangiare perche' e' sempre magra (ma non come prima, sta meglio ora..) e le tiro su il bavero della giacca perche' tira un vento disumano, la Moglie le butta li' che stiamo aspettando di sapere se l'hanno promossa a manager e se le danno il suo own negozio.
Boo si spertica in scongiuri e macumbe e incrocia l'incrociabile, ci salutiamo ventimila volte parlandoci sopra l'un l'altra come ogni volta. Facciamo in tempo ad arrivare al Costa che la Moglie riceve l'agognata news e viene ufficialmente promossa.
Va senza dire che siamo tornate al teatro ad intercettare Boo al ritorno dalla pausa pranzo per dirglielo. Ah, com'e' ciccia. Non c'e' nessuno ciccio come lei. Era cosi' contenta..
Un altro paio di strizzatine e abbraccioni e via alla volta di Londra, con quel magone dolceamaro post-visita che ci attanaglia quando l'adrenalina smette di pompare in corpo e sei solo tu su un treno Manchester-Londra a piangere nel cappuccino come se avessi detto addio al piu' grande amore della mia vita. (ma moltiplicatelo per due, perche' siamo due deficenti che si innamorano perdutamente della stessa persona)

          E' arrivata l'estate! Ma anche no.. (parte seconda)   
Lo so che non c'e' stata ancora una 'parte prima' di questo post, ma arrivera'.
Se e quando mi va di scriverla, ma arrivera'.
Non pretenderete mica che vada in ordine.
Troppo convenzionale.
Come direbbe il Dottor Sheldon Cooper, "What's life without whimsy?".

Nel frattempo, ecco la 'parte seconda':

La cara Sally, dall'Australia con furore ma ora vive in Galles, ci viene a tenere il cane affinche' le vostre eroine (sarebbimo io e la Moglie) possano andare in meritata vacanza.
Mi pare giusto ricambiare il favorone con uno show aggratis, oh yeah.

HAIR (20.05.10, matinee)
Felix, il mio cinesino preferito, ci fa beccare dei biglietti gratis per Hair, e noi ci fiondiamo.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHQQQQQUUuuuaaaanto me piace sto show. Si Si. Me lo rivedrebbi a iosa. Tra l'altro ci sono quattro o cinque canzoni di una bellezza disumana, anche semplicemente fuori contesto dal musical.
E mi scende sempre una lacrimuccia alla fine, devo ammettere...
Ci siamo fatte la solita ballata finale tutti sul palco, foto con Allison (mi sono ricordata la macchinetta, stavolta..) e Sally ha apprezzato. Yay.


(LOL, che manica de scalmanati..leeeeeeet the sun shine iiiiiiin..)



<3

Cena da Viet, gelato da Amorino, passeggiata al sole (VENTISETTE GRADI OMG) e ci viene una voglia improvvisa di morti alle barricate e prostitute tisiche.

LES MISERABLES (20.05.10)
Sally non l'ha mai visto, e' ora che perda la sua Les Miz virginity. Mannaggia che Thaxton non c'era, al suo posto tale Mark Dugdale, che non faceva schifo ma cosi' pischello e sbarazzino, non ci credi nemmeno da lontano che qualcuno lo possa seguire fino alla morte tentando una rivoluzione sociale..
Sally e' rimasta di sasso, e tanto basta.
Zio Martin quasi zompettava quando e' uscito, e' sempre tanto caruccio, dio lo benedica..Sfigato da morire, pero' eh? Si e' lasciato anche con la tipa che lavorava a Wicked..maccheddiamine..Adesso lo iscrivo a sua insaputa su Match.com.
Poi e' corso via perche' avevano West End Eurovision, a cui noi, di nuovo, non siamo andate. Si lo so, non e' da perdere e tutto quello che volete, ma lo show comincia alle 23 e finisce alle 2, a torna' alle 4 del mattino a casa, con le scarpe in mano come una ragazza dell'Essex qualunque, dai..
Non c'ho piu' il fisico.

Quindi per il mio compleanno ce ne partiamo per Bournemouth, dove procediamo a rosolare al sole e ad abboffarci di fish & chips per 3 giorni. Alloggiando in un albergo a tema cioccolato, dove tra una tavoletta intera sul comodino, i marshmallows al cioccolato al checkin, i panckaes al cioccolato la mattina e i Martini al cioccolato al bar, e' un miracolo che non ci sia venuta una scagazza micidiale.
Invece manco pe' gnente.

Faccio in tempo a tornare che si ricomincia:

Ah, quanto me piacciono sti drammoni familiari impaccati di segreti micidiali e sorrisi fasulli. Altro che Wysteria Lane, tsk.
Ci siamo spellati le mani a forza di applaudire. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

E ora, un po' di zozzerie televisive! SIGLA! (non vi lamentate, ci voglio mettere una sigla e ce la metto, va bene? Anzi, vi diro' di piu'! LA SIGLA DI BEVERLY HILLS 90210!! TIE'! SIGLAAAAAA!!!)



Prima di tutto, finiamo sta tarantella delle Dorothy che e' diventata pesante:



Ci lasciano Steph (gia' acclamata come la prossima Elphaba..hahahahah, no.) e subito dopo Lauren (meglio cosi', ha un appuntamento col destino sta ragazza, troooooppo brava per essere sprecata in una nefandezza come il Wizard of Oz..), Sophie e Danielle al finalone.
Ora, Sophie e' tanto bellina ed e' rossa ed e' vagamente hot, ma..no. Seriously, no. Non sa recitare, vocalmente e' buona ma non consistente e all in all non e' affatto impressive.
Danielle FTW. Lo dicevo io, al solito, dalla prima puntata. Non sbaglio mai su ste cose.
Non mi aspetto di vedere Wizard prima dell'anno prossimo, anche perche' e' di una noia bestiale, a meno che non ci invitano o che la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen ci faccia avere biglietti aggratis, anche solo in memoria delle gelide mattine che abbiamo passato a giocare a Uno sui gradini dell'Apollo Vic dayqueuando per Wicked..

Poi.

Avrete notato anche voi una tizia grassa col nasone che canta in Glee.
No, non Lea Michele, piu' vecchia.
No, NON BARBRA!
Parlo di una che si spaccia per Idina Menzel.
Be', non e' lei. E' la tizia che ha INGOIATO Idina Menzel.
Non c'e' altra spiegazione.
Altrimenti devo accettare che Addominali D'Acciaio sia diventata la mamma di Dumbo, e non lo posso accettare. Nun ze po'.
Ma pensa te, non poteva adottare qualche sfortunato pargolo nel mondo, come fanno tutti? C'era bisogno di figliare? Swirl (o The Artist Formerly Known As Walker Diggs) gli ha fatto un bel regalo, c'ha a mala pena sei mesi e gia' anni di terapia assicurata..)
Dall'altra parte abbiamo invece Cheno, che non vuole incrociare Idina manco per sbaglio sul set. Ah. Che bei momenti. (also, la ragazza sta sempre male, so' piu' gli show che non fa che quelli che fa..sono seriamente preoccupata..)
E dall'altra parte ancora c'e' Neil Patrick Harris che AWESOME qualunque cosa faccia, soprattutto se canta..soprattutto se lo dirige Joss Whedon.

Insomma, va a finire che 'sto Glee lo finisco a guardare sempre. Che nervi.

Nel frattempo finali di stagione come se piovesse. Bones (meh), 30 Rock (MEGALOL), How I met your mother (eheh), The Big Bang Theory (lulz), NCIS (whut??), Modern Family (OMG I<3U ALL!!) e Legend of the Seeker (oh god, non puo' essere la fine, non puo' essere..*piange*).

Ah, e Lost.
Be', non avete amato/odiato anche voi questo show? Non avete amato/odiato per 6 anni questi personaggi insopportabili su quest'isolaccia maledetta?
Come non amarlo/odiarlo fino alla fine.
Ho soprattutto apprezzato quando la Tartaruga Magica e' uscita dall'acqua al grido di THIS IS SPARTAAAAA e ha dato fuoco a una scureggia di Hurley, radendo al suolo l'intera iso..come dite? Non e' successo questo nel finale di Lost?
No no, e' successo, fidatevi.
E' molto meglio la Tartaruga Magica che quello che e' successo veramente.
Date retta a 'na fessa.
L'unica cosa che voglio ricordare sono Daniel e Charlottina, e Juliet e il suo James. Tutto qui. E vabbe', anche un po' Jack & Kate, ma giusto perche' Evi is SO MUCH LOVE e omg. *piange sommessamente*

Vi lasciamo dunque con l'ultimo Untangled e la canzone piu' epic del mondo, eseguita dai Previously On Lost (lol)



(questa canzone e' cramazing, OMG..)


PS: Mazz ha lasciato Rock You, causa pargolo. E' la fine di un'era.
          I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth..   
Prima sventagliata di shows aggratis.

MAMMA MIA! (14.04.10)
Mi raccomando, con il punto esclamativo.
Io lo ribattezzerei in MAMMA MIA CHEMMERDA!, but that's just me.
Da non-fan degli Abba che sa tutte le canzoni a memoria (HOW?!), potete anche immaginare perche' finora ho evitato questo show come si evita un appuntamento dal dentista. (sono due, questo e Blood Brothers, che non vedrei nemmeno trascinata di peso..)
Ebbene si, sono stata trascinata di peso. I biglietti gratis sono sempre un gran incentivo.
Nemmeno la soddisfazione di vedere Linzi Hateley, che ha pensato bene di andare in vacanza. La tizia che abbiamo visto come Donna mi pare si chiami Sara West, non era impressive, soprattutto dopo che hai sentito Carolee Carmello che ha due polmoni d'acciaio inossidabile e questo ruolo se lo mangia a colazione, ma se mai trasferiscono In The Heights, OMG e' tipo perfetta per Abuela Claudia.

La nostra Sophie e' la bellina Jesse May (che ha un nome da boondocks, ma e' biondina e bellina assai..), che ci rende difficile il connettere che Julie, una volta, faceva questo ruolo. OMG. (e Paul era u/s Skye nel Tour internazionale, ma vabbe', meglio lasciar perdere le mie opinioni su Paul in un qualunque ruolo etero..)

Zio Martin faceva uno dei tre papa', non mi ricordo nemmeno quale, ma ringrazio solo il cielo che non lo conoscevamo all'epoca. Anzi, ringraziamo il cielo che non conosciamo nessuno in questo cast, nemmeno di striscio. (si c'e' una di Zorro che riconosco in quanto somiglia a Zooey Deschanel, ma chi ci ha mai parlato..)

Rosie e Tanya dimenticabili, Ali e Lisa peggio ancora, le canzoni spinte dentro a forza come in un macina carne anche quando non c'entrano un'emerita mazza, ad un ritmo di tre battute/canzone/due battute/canzone. Alcune sono veramente WTF, tipo Name of the Game, che da una normale situazione lei/lui diventa forzatamente figlia/padre e oddio e' di un incestuoso da far venire la pelle d'oca..

Menzione speciale a Skye, che in quanto a personaggio e' piu' inutile di Fiyero (ed e' dire tanto), non fa un cazzo e ha, letteralmente, mezza canzone da cantare.

Lo show, dopo gags deprimenti e un po' di parolacce buttate li' a caso, finisce con un plot twist matrimoniale e una luna gigantesca che spunta dal monte dal mare.
Non ho fatto in tempo a dirmi 'meh, che finale mesto per uno show cosi'..' che, bieco trucco per mandare le masse a casa felici, parte un assordante megamix.
No, nemmeno un megamix, ma semplicemente tre canzoni degli ABBA a caso, mi pare Super Trouper, Waterloo e Mamma Mia. I turisti escono ballando e canticchiando, quindi missione compiuta.
Io barcollo fuori dal Prince of Wales piuttosto provata, e mi congratulo del fatto che non sono le 3 di notte e gli ushers non ci stanno spintonando fuori, come succede di solito quando andiamo ai cabaret dei Hannah alla Delfont Room.

Questo show ha anche un fottio di produzioni in giro allo stesso momento. C'e' Londra, New York, Oslo e Mexico City..e poi il Tour Americano, il Tour internazionale, il Tour Australiano, il Tour Spagnolo, il Tour Olandese..
Non oso immaginare il volume di soldi che generano.
Immagino una roba tipo Benny e Björn che sguazzano nei soldi nel loro forziere a Goflurbändefråppa, o dove cazzo abitano..

HAIR (15.04.10)
Il giorno dopo ci invitano a ballare con la Tribu', e noi andiamo.
Non c'e' modo di spiegare Hair, non ha plot, forse nemmeno un senso.
La maggior parte dello show sono loro, i personaggi, che ti raccontano chi sono, in cosa credono, cosa li fa incazzare, e cosa sognano, e dove vanno quando si fanno un viaggio con l'LSD.
E poi c'e' Claude, che non vuole morire in Viet Nam ma non sa come chi/cosa/dove e' e come uscirne fuori. Vuole restare a New York ad aspettare la neve. Vuole restare e amare Sheila e Berger e i suoi brothers & sisters.
Claude vuole solo essere invisibile.

La Tribu' scende in sala e ti viene a parlare, a toccare, a baciare, a rubare la coca cola, a sederti vicino, ad abbracciarti, a portarti margherite bianche, a salire sui sedili in bilico sui braccioli.
Si spogliano completamente, letteralmente e metaforicamente. Si denudano su quel palco perche' tu li veda, perche' their eyes are open e vogliono che lo siano anche i tuoi.
E dopo aver conosciutoamatoadorato la Tribu', lo show finisce.
E tu rimani con questa energia dentro, con questo fuoco che ti hanno accesso, ti ribolle dentro, la standing ovation alla fine non e' abbastanza, vuoi di piu', devi liberarla ora, subito.

Ed e' li' che la Tribu' ti chiama sul palco.
Vai su, 200 persone controllate dagli ushers coi clickers, non di piu' senno' la health & safety se ne va a farsi benedire.
E a te non te ne importa un cazzo della H&S e dei corrimano messi su all'ultimo secondo, perche' Allison Case con un sorriso a 35mila denti ti sta aiutando su per i gradini e ti accoglie sfiorandoti lieve e c'e' da cantare Let the Sun Shine In tutti insieme, e dove mi giro trovo gente che conosco, Charlotte e Perry che non vedo da una vita OMG che cazzo ci fate qui e Sabrina e Jon che si dimenano e tutto il Gielgud che ti guarda e i riflettori ti accecano e fa un caldo pazzesco e tutti ondeggiano e lasciano entrare il sole e dietro ho Megan Reinking che mi canta nell'orecchio e quando mi giro a fine canzone (minchia che bella che e'..) ci battiamo il cinque (anzi il dieci) e tutti ti sfiorano le braccia e tu che gli dici well done e loro che ti ringraziano per essere venuta, e scendi giu' con le gambe che ti tremano, maledicendo la poca prontezza di riflessi nell'agguantare una macchinetta fotografica prima di salire.
Due giorni dopo e sono ancora drogata di flower power.

Il cast e' stato trasferito in blocco da Broadway, e si vede che si stanno godendo l'attimo. Sono giovani e belli e in gita scolastica tutto pagato, che je frega..
Per una botta di culo pazzesca abbiamo avuto Phyre Hawkins come Dionne (che si e' cantata the shit out of it) e Holly (ex Dynamite di Hairspray) come swing, unica rappresentate UK on stage, oh yeah.
Will Swenson e' uno schizzato e confuso Berger, ma e' incredibilmente gentile e pacato di persona, mi aspettavo un cazzone sciupafemmine e invece e' educato come un principino.
Gavin Creel ha uno status da semidio da queste parti, quindi vabbe'..un po' cafone di persona, troppo occupato al telefono per firmare autografi ai poveri derelitti alla stage door, apparentemente..(io non me lo cago comunque, ho altri interessi..)
Le ragazze mi hanno conquistata. Caissie Levy e' una splendida SheilaFranklynsecondsemesterNYU, Megan Reinking e' rossa e sexy da morire e molto alla mano, Kacie Sheik (Jeanie) e' incredibile e sembra una persona interessantissima..
Ma la mia preferita e' Allison. D'uh, aggiungerei.
E' adorabile, e' brava, e' rossa ed e' gay (tipo l'unica lesbica out in tutta broadway, se non sbaglio..). Ci manca solo che abbia la pelle al gusto di fragola, poi e' perfetta.
Ci siamo coccolate un po', fatte una foto scema, discusso su quanto fossi orrenda nella foto ('Sembro un'idiota!', 'Ma noo, non e' vero..', 'Ma si guarda, sembro un'idiota!', 'Ma noooo..'), arrivata a casa la aggiungo su Feisbuk, lei mi riaggiunge dopo un minuto e mi va a commentare la nostra foto insieme, che come tag ha 'Sembro un'idiota', con un: 'Ma no che non sembri un'idiota!'.
STRALOL. La amo.

Giudicate voi, sembro decisamente un'idiota..



AVENUE Q (17.04.10)
Ultimo giorno utile per vedere Rachel come Kate/Lucy che sostituisce CJ in vacanza, quindi andiamo anche se sono stanchissima. Vengono anche Cath e Sarah, tanto per.
Quanto e' bellina. Non hot, ma bellina. Mi ricorda sempre Gabrielle di Xena. E' come una goccia di sole, sorridente e adorabile. Egualmente forti sia la sua Kate che la sua Lucy.
Paul mi piace ancora molto, Princeton e' ok, ma il suo Rod e' la mia anima gemella. Lo voglio sposare.
E' tornata Jacqui-col-porro-in-fronte a coprire provvisoriamente la track di Clare, Alan Pearson copre Tom malato come Trekkie/Nicky, e Sion lavora bene con Jacqueline nella coppia Brian/Christmas Eve.
Alla fine andiamo a salutare Paul, che l'unica volta che non l'abbiamo fatto ci ha detto parole, e tra una ciaccola e l'altra trovo le palle per chiedergli di Clare.

La prima cosa che ha detto e' stata 'Si, non sta passando un bel periodo..', spezzandomi il cuore. Dice che ci passano tutti, che sta un po' giu'. Dice che sta facendo una cosa al Sadler's Wells di domenica, una riesumazione di musical sconosciuti, e pensa che le fara' sicuramente piacere vederci.
Tornate a casa ci rendiamo conto che e' sold out, ovviamente, ma tenteremo il tutto per tutto.
Meglio essere venuta a saperlo da lui in tempo, che tra due o tre mesi quando il cazzo di Google Alert si decide a funzionare.

In leggero stato di panico, mi appresto ad affrontare la prossima sventagliata di show.

Ho anche guai a lavoro, se non mi viene un'ulcera sta botta, non so davvero quando.


PS: Simon, non si sa grazie a quale santo, si e' beccato il Tour di Spamalot. Non sappiamo in che ruolo. Ci tocchera' fare di nuovo un giretto a Bromley st'estate, me sa..
          Marshall Kent Leads Nine Players Set for Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Finals   

Three-time PBA Tour titlist Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., averaged 227 over four rounds on different lane conditions to lead a field of nine players who advanced to this weekend’s stepladder finals of the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

ESPN’s live coverage begins Saturday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) from the Grand Hotel Event Center when qualifiers five through nine will compete on two specially-installed lanes with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position who will join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast which also gets underway at noon local time.

Kent compiled a 7,278 32-game pinfall total bowled on PBA’s 32-foot Wolf, 40-foot Bear, 52-foot Badger and 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition patterns over the four days of qualifying at the FireLake Bowling Center. He bowled games of 237, 274, 266, 257, 236, 220, 235 and 207 in Friday’s final round on the Oklahoma condition.

IMG_2060Despite starting the tournament with games of 160 and 170 in the first round on the Wolf condition Tuesday, Kent relied on his ability to adjust to quickly rebound.

“I was a little frustrated but I reminded myself it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” he said. “In a tournament like this you have to look at the big picture. I was a little frustrated but I knew I had 30 games to go.

“I think overall my versatility showed in this tournament,” the 24-year-old Kent continued. “I didn’t have a good start but it didn’t worry me.”

As top qualifier, Kent earned the right to select the lane condition pattern for both stepladder telecasts this weekend and has selected the Bear pattern. He does have the option to change the pattern selection after Saturday’s telecast for Sunday’s competition.

“I feel that the Bear pattern is the best pattern for rewarding the player who makes the best shot,” Kent said. “My gut right now is to stick with it for both days.”

Climbing from 28th after the first round and 12th after Thursday’s third round, three-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia averaged 256 in the final round to rocket to the no. 2 qualifying position and finish with a 7,208 pinfall. The two-hander will be trying for this third win of the season after winning the USBC Masters and Barbasol PBA Players Championship.

Joining Kent and Belmonte in Sunday’s finals will be no. 3 qualifier three-time Tour winner Rhino Page of Orlando who finished with a 7,191 pinfall and no. 4 qualifier 18-time Tour champion Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who finished with 7,181.

IMG_2057“I knew the pattern today would be easier than what we had been bowling on,” said Belmonte, who owns 14 career PBA Tour titles. “You still have to execute because pin carry becomes something you have to deal with. I went into this round taking it shot by shot and wasn’t going to be afraid of what was going to happen down lane.”

Players who qualified fifth through ninth bowling in Saturday’s stepladder round to determine the no. 5 qualifier for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast will be two-time tour winner Thomas Larsen of Denmark, reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., Jesper Svensson of Sweden, Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., and Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., fell short of making the top nine by 94 pins finishing 11th with a 6,941 pinfall (216.9 average) to record his highest PBA Tour finish.

          Denmark’s Larsen Meeting Challenge of Multiple Lane Conditions To Retain Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Lead   

In a tournament that puts a premium on a player’s ability to adjust to vastly different lane conditions, third-round leader Thomas Larsen of Denmark feels he’s as prepared as he can be to meet the challenges of competing in the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

After three rounds bowled on three different PBA lane condition patterns, the two-time PBA Tour and four-time European Bowling Tour winner, leads a field of 33 players who advanced to Friday’s final round at the FireLake Bowling Center with a 5,398 24-game pinfall (224.9 average).

The players advancing to the fourth round will be put to the test on the 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition and will battle to be among the top nine who will advance to the live ESPN stepladder finals Saturday and Sunday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) at the Grand Casino Hotel Event Center in Shawnee.

Larsen bowled eight-game pinfall totals of 1,826 on the 32-foot Wolf pattern lane condition in the first round, 1,793 on the 40-foot Bear pattern in the second round and 1,779 on the 52-foot Badger pattern in Thursday’s third round with games of 223, 190, 246, 200, 244, 219, 219 and 238.

“It was another successful day today,” said the 27-year-old Larsen who led after the second round. “You never know what will happen when you’re bowling on a completely new lane condition but I was ready for the challenge.

“I used a lot of balls again today in the round,” he continued. “Just like in yesterday’s round I used several balls and had to make changes in my ball speed and hand position at the release – the changes were just different today.”

Larsen is trying for his first PBA Tour title on U.S. soil. His Tour titles came in the 2013 Abu Dhabi Open and 2014 Kuwait International Open.

Larsen holds a 45-pin lead over 18-time PBA Tour titlist Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, in second with a 5,353 pinfall. Three-time PBA Tour winner Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., is third with 5,346.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., advanced to the fourth round with a 10th-place 5,199 pinfall total. He bowled games of 234, 218, 235, 163, 213, 183, 236 and 206 in the third round.

“I’m a little surprised how well I’m doing because when I practiced on these conditions at home I didn’t do that well,” said the high school sophomore who uses the unique two-handed delivery. “Generally, I feel comfortable making the adjustments I need to make – I’m just trying to learn as much as I can.

“If I have a bad game or get a split, I just have to remember that there are more opportunities and more bowling to go.”

Ford has been a PBA member since age 13 and has three top-10 finishes in PBA regional competition with a best of sixth.

Saturday’s stepladder round will feature players who qualified fifth through ninth with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position to join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder final.

Friday’s final qualifying round will be streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame beginning at 9:30 EDT (8:30 CT). For subscription and schedule information click on www.xtraframe.tv.

          PBA Spare Shots: PBA’s Influence on International Bowling Community Continues to Grow   

Bowlers from around the world have always considered the PBA as the gold standard. If you wanted to find out how good you are, you had to bowl against – and beat – the world’s best. For decades, that was a difficult decision to make because the Fédération Internationale des Quilleurs, the international governing body in the eyes of the International Olympic Committee, banned professionals from its ranks.

(Feature photo, from left: Members of the victorious international team in the inaugural USA Vs. The World team match held during PBA World Series of Bowling II in Las Vegas in 2010 were Finland’s Osku Palermaa, Kimmo Lehtonen and Mika Koivuniemi, Canada’s Dan MacLelland, Australia’s Jason Belmonte and Venezuela’s Amleto Monacelli)

That policy changed in 2008, when the World Tenpin Bowling Association (WTBA) – now World Bowling – became the official governing body of tenpin bowling and opened its doors to professionals in the hopes of advancing bowling’s hope to gain Olympic acceptance, meaning that international players would no longer jeopardize eligibility to represent their national teams if the joined the PBA.

The introduction of the multi-event PBA World Series of Bowling concept a year later brought a veritable flood of international players into PBA competition. While notable players like PBA Tour champions Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela (1982), Sweden’s Mats Karlsson (1983) and Finland’s Mika Koivuniemi (1999), among a handful of others, had ventured into the PBA arena prior to 2008, the inaugural WSOB included an unprecedented 28 players from 14 different countries.

flagsThe WSOB has continued to welcome players from around the world. Since 2009, 38 different countries have been represented in the World Series, including a record 23 countries and 55 international players last year in Reno. The same sort of trend has had an impact of the recently-resurrected Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour, which has featured a strong influx of international players.

In 2017, the PBA has seen international competition grow in events not previously known for global appeal, such as the Xtra Frame PBA Tour program and, this week, the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Oklahoma Open, which includes 16 nations and 26 international players in its field of 91.

It’s an exciting trend for bowling, especially as the sport continues to seek the attention of the IOC and bowling manufacturers continue to expand their global markets. It’s good for bowling fans around the world, who can cheer for their home-country favorites thanks to the advent of Xtra Frame, pba.com and other social media outlets with world-wide accessibility. And it’s good for competition, because the level of talent in PBA competition has never been stronger, which only adds to the prestige of winning a PBA Tour title.

XTRA FRAME SCHEDULE INCLUDES OKLAHOMA PRELIMS, PWBA ACTION

This week’s Xtra Frame’s live streaming schedule will feature qualifying round coverage of the PBA Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Oklahoma Open from FireLake Bowling Center in Shawnee, Okla., through Friday, leading up to two days of live ESPN coverage of the Oklahoma Open’s nine-player stepladder finals Saturday and Sunday, July 1-2, at 1 p.m. EDT both days. The Oklahoma Open finals also will be live streamed on ESPN and the WatchESPN app.

This week’s PWBA Tour coverage features the Orlando Open Friday and Saturday.

Heading into July, Xtra Frame’s schedule includes the Teen Masters from Richmond, Va., July 5-7; the PWBA St. Petersburg-Clearwater Open from Seminole, Fla., July 7-8; the Proprietors Cup from Beavercreek, Ohio, July 8-9; the Nationwide PWBA Rochester (N.Y.) Open, July 14-15; the PBA50 South Shore Open from Hammond, Ind., July 25-27; the XF Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles from Copperfield Bowl in Houston, Texas, July 28-30, which will award PBA and PWBA Tour titles; and the PBA50 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic from Anderson, Ind., July 30-Aug. 1. For broadcast time and other details, check under the “schedules” tab on pba.com.

PBA REGIONAL UPDATE: WARREN, TANG WIN PBA50/PBA DOUBLES TITLE IN RENO

PBA50 competitor Chris Warren of Grants Pass, Ore., teamed up with Darren Tang of San Francisco to win the PBA50/PBA Sands Regency West/Northwest Doubles Open, presented by MOTIV, at High Sierra Lanes Sunday over PBA50 rookie Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix and Tang’s younger brother, amateur Michael Tang, 449-422.

Warren and Darren Tang took an early lead and a costly open late in the game by Michael Tang, combined with Haugen’s inability to carry pocket hits, resulted in Warren claiming his fourth PBA50 Regional title while Darren Tang picked up his second title since becoming a member a year ago.

In the single elimination match play leading up to the title match, the Warren/Tang team swept Utah amateurs Clay Rees from Riverton and Craig Harrington of Harriman, 3-0. Warren/Tang then defeated the San Jose, Calif., team of Gregory Thompson Jr. and Marty Deh in the semifinal match, 490-416, while the Haugen/Tang team survived a semifinal round shootout against PJ Haggerty from Roseville, Calif., and Las Vegan Ron Mohr, 546-545.

● PBA rookie Andrew Anderson of Holly, Mich., defeated Chandler Stevens of Archbold, Ohio, 216-177, to win his first PBA title in the PBA Pro Bowl West Central/Midwest Challenge presented by Roto Grip at Pro Bowl West on Saturday.

Challenge events are open to PBA members without a PBA title or non-members who have never won a PBA event. In addition to his first title, Anderson won $1,500.

Anderson downed Frank Snodgrass of Center Line, Mich., 228-161, in the semifinal round while Stevens topped Charlie Brown of Grandville, Mich., 208-159, to set up the championship match.

Keith Lesko of Chicago defeated Mark Sullivan of Indianapolis, 222-202, to win the PBA50 Ultimate Inserts Midwest Open presented by Hammer at Lakeside Lanes in Davis, Ill., Sunday. 

Lesko, who led qualifying, took each of the preliminary matches to the maximum number of games.  He defeated Jeff Johnson of Freeport, Ill. 3-2, in the best-of-five-game Round of 8, and then defeated R.J. Alman of Murrysville, Pa., 2-1, in the best-of-three semifinal round. Sullivan bested his travelling partner Danny Clark of New Palestine, Ind. 3-2, before beating Dave Traber of Hebron, Ill., 2-1, in his semifinal match.

Along with his third PBA Regional title Lesko received $1,700.

          The 64th Sydney Film Festival Awards On Body and Soul (Berlin winner)   

onbodyandsoul1.jpg

The 64th Sydney Film Festival tonight awarded On Body and Soul, directed by Ildikó Enyedi, the prestigious 10th anniversary Sydney Film Prize, out of a selection of 12 Official Competition films. 

The $60,000 cash prize for 'audacious, cutting-edge and courageous' film was awarded to Enyedi at the Festival’s Closing Night Gala awards ceremony and event at the State Theatre, ahead of the Australian premiere screening of Bong Joon-ho's Okja. 

Accepting the award, Enyedi said, “It was such an amazingly strong competition. It’s marvellous that such a film can move so many people, it gives me so much hope in cinema and in human communication.”

Sydney filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood were awarded the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary’s $10,000 cash prize for The Pink House, about the last brothel in old mining town Kalgoorlie.

The Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films saw the $7000 cash prize for the Dendy Live Action Short Award going to Adele, directed by Mirene Igwabi.  Sunday Emerson Gullifer was Highly Commended for her short film Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.  And Daniel Agdag's animation Lost Property Office took out both the $7000 Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Director and the $5000 Yoram Gross Animation Award.

The Event Cinemas Australian Short Screenplay Award, a $5,000 prize for the best short screenwriting, was awarded to Michael Cusack, the writer and director of stop motion animation After All.  And the writers of Screenability short film The Milky Pop Kid, Johanna Garvin and Emily Dash, were Highly Commended. 

The $10,000 Sydney-UNESCO City of Film Award, bestowed by Create NSW to a trail-blazing NSW-based screen practitioner, went to Indigenous Australian actor, director and writer Leah Purcell.

Chris Freeland announced he will step down as Sydney Film Festival Chair while remaining on the Board.   Freeland, a Partner of Baker McKenzie and a member of its Asia Pacific Regional Council, chaired the organisation for eight years.  He led an era of expansion as well as industry and public popularity, seeing attendances almost double.

Festival Board Director Deanne Weir was welcomed to the position of Chair. Weir has over 25 years’ experience in media and communications and is Foxtel’s Managing Director, Content Aggregation and Wholesale.  She is also a renowned television producer and philanthropist whose passion is to support the advancement of women in the community.

Sydney Film Festival CEO Leigh Small said, “This year again, the Festival exceeded previous attendance figures – a continuing ten-year trend. There was an average of 72% capacity across all sessions with almost 185,000 attendances. This result marks a fitting end to Chris Freeland’s eight year tenure during which the number of people attending the Sydney Film Festival almost doubled.”

Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said: “2017 has been a significant year for film and filmmakers.   As the world looks for ways to understand and interpret the momentous events and challenges facing humanity, filmmakers across the globe have risen to the challenge.

“From refugees and the horrors of war, to the state of the world’s oceans,  this program of films - screened to Australian audiences for the first time at the 64th Sydney Film Festival - has provided an opportunity to debate and discuss some of the most pressing and contentious issues of our time.

“With a spotlight on questions of equality in race, sexuality, wealth, accessibility, and many other global conversations, these 12 days have provided a wealth of stories from diverse viewpoints and a moment in time to take stock of who, what and where we are today.

“I congratulate all the winners and all of the finalists, as well as the hundreds of filmmakers who have joined us at the Festival to present their ideas and opinions in films, talks and discussions,” he said.

THE SYDNEY FILM PRIZE

On awarding the Sydney Film Prize to Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi’s On Body and Soul, Jury President Margaret Pomeranz said:

"Over the past 12 days we’ve experienced a most extraordinary cinematic journey curated by Sydney Film Festival.

"We’ve seen films about women struggling to find a space for themselves in a world that seems to want to keep them in their place; there have been films about transgressions, from youthful murder to child abuse.

"We’ve seen films about the many faces of sexual desire; we’ve been invited into worlds of wonder we have never experienced and we’ve been exposed to the ugly side of ourselves, through racism, poverty, cruelty and displacement.  And we’ve also been invited into the world of human compassion.

"And that element of compassion is very present in the film we’ve chosen to award the Sydney Film Prize.  It’s a film that shows us that even in this divided world we are capable of sharing the same dreams, that amongst the ugliness of a slaughterhouse, kindness, gentleness can be found," she said.

"So the Sydney Film Prize goes to the graceful, measured and ever so compassionate On Body and Soul from Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi."

Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear, On Body and Soul is Enyedi’s visually ravishing return to filmmaking after an 18-year break.  The film is about the unconventional romance between two co-workers who discover that each night they have exactly the same dreams.

The Festival jury was comprised of Australian film critic Margaret Pomeranz, critically acclaimed Nepali director Deepak Rauniyar, former senior film executive of South Korean powerhouse CJ Entertainment Kini Kim, independent Asian-Canadian animator Ann Marie Fleming, and Australian film producer Rosemary Blight of smash-hit The Sapphires and acclaimed television series Cleverman.

Previous winners include: Aquarius (2016), Arabian Nights (2015); Two Days, One Night (2014); Only God Forgives (2013); Alps (2012); A Separation (2011); Heartbeats (2010); Bronson (2009); and Hunger (2008).

The competition is endorsed by FIAPF, the regulating body for international film festivals, and is judged by a jury of five international and Australian filmmakers and industry professionals.

The selection of films in Competition for the SFF 2017 Sydney Film Prize are listed HERE.

THE DOCUMENTARY AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTARY

The Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary was awarded to The Pink House from filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood. The Jury comprising award-winning Asian-American filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz, CEO of the Documentary Australia Foundation Dr Mitzi Goldman and Australian based Iranian filmmaker Amin Palangi in a joint statement said:

"Amongst ten noteworthy films, one film enthralled us with its blend of nuanced characters and narrative depth. 

“In classic cinema verite fashion, the filmmaker introduces us to two singular women who give her unfettered access to their constantly changing lives, revealing a profound trust between filmmaker and subject that renders this film deeply personal and intimate.

“Through the unflinching gaze of her lens, this filmmaker immerses us in a world that, in less disciplined hands, could very well have been voyeuristic.  Instead we are treated to a film that is handled with affection and grace.”

“We the Jury give the Australian documentary prize to Sasha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood for The Pink House.” 

2017 marks the fourth year the prize has been supported by the Foundation.

Previous winners include: In the Shadow of the Hill (2016); Only the Dead (2015); 35 Letters (2014); Buckskin (2013); Killing Anna (2012); Life in Movement (2011); and The Snowman (2010). In 2009 the inaugural prize was shared between Contact and A Good Man, and each film received a $10,000 cash prize.

          An update & A poem   
368 days ago, I wrote a post called "The little blog that could" which had a little poem and then an update. It turned out to become more like "The little blog that didn't", which I am a bit sad about, but also happy, as it shows how many new things I have thrown myself into that has taken up my time.

Anyway, the updates are almost exactly the same. I am going on NTE again, (hopefully this time I will write a post about it!), going on a road trip with friends, uni was some study + lots of fun, and yatter yatter yatter.

I wrote this poem because I had time on the train. I realised I do best when I don't try and be abstract but just tell it how it is. So this is my introduction to you.


An Introduction

I'm a tree by the river
Sustained by the giver
Of all things, and who brings
Life to the withered.

I'm a missionary liver
The gospel I deliver
To all things and who sings
Of Christ the redeemer.

I'm an alien and a foreigner
Don't belong in Australia
In all things and who clings
To the sure heaven future

I'm a son and a brother,
With a loving heavenly father
Through all things, He's the king
There is no other

          The little blog that could   
First and foremost, a very short summary of the last year in a poem. (Just to put some spice into an otherwise boring life story!)

My final year of high school flew past.
Exams, assignments, study before breakfast.
Captaincy, meetings, then friends and family
All the more relying on God's majesty.

Now I'm back into the blogosphere, I feel like there is so much I could talk about! This blog has become my diary, and I feel if I don't type up my experiences, I will forget them. Amongst the overload of things I want to write, in my head I'm just singing "Just keep writing, just keep writing" (to the tune of Dory's annoying "Just keep swimming" song in Finding Nemo). So here goes quick fire paragraphs to bring you and me up to speed.

First, the much hyped but anticlimactical Hay Stacking Competition. I studied a surprising amount, in the library, making unofficial study buddies through glances across desks to motivate me to continue burying my head in the books. I am glad I did though, because I had been praying that I would study, and that is what happened, so God lovingly lavishing his grace upon me once again. During the exam period (3 weeks! With a 9 day period in between two exams!) I felt supernaturally sustained, through the prayers of all those in my church family. I cannot thank them enough, and thank God for them too. I never felt more blessed to be part of my church, I felt bad ever wanting to leave. 

Second, once my last exam had finally came and gone, my brother, who had just finished his thesis for his degree at uni, and I, left on a roadtrip all the way down to the Great Ocean Road and back along the South Coast. My version of "schoolies", I guess. I loved it, because it gave me something to do, to drive, and I got to see more of the beauty of Australia, and began to understand some of its geography better too. In typical guy fashion, most of the relationship building was subtle, but we did have good conversations too, which was good. I even got to be on the radio, for about 1 second, until my phone reception cut out, (although some say I was deliberately hung up by the radio presenter for blabbering about nothing...)

Third, fixing up all my uni preferences, hopefully going to study Arts/Education at Sydney University to become a high school teacher. I had an interview for a teaching scholarship where the interviewer seemed more interested about my Dad and his mission to Japan than me, but God was in control and the interviewer ended up telling me that just like my Dad I seemed to have very strong convictions that would be great as a teacher, assuring me I'd probably be offered the scholarship, which is nice.

Fourth and finally (alliteration!), I am preparing myself for a conference and mission called National Training Event, which is run by the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students, an organisation that organised Uni Christian groups. I will be going all the way to Narribri in rural NSW after the conference with a Sydney Uni team to help preach the gospel there, running scripture seminars, helping with the church services, and talking to people in the main street. I hope to write a reflection either everyday, or an overall one at the end of the mission, so keep posted.

If you have read this far, good job! I think this post had become much more like a personal diary entry, nothing really interesting or deep, just a blabble about my own life. It may have inspired you to go out and do some more evangelism, if it did, praise God! You can tell me about it in the comments!

Anyway, to end, the title of this post is "The little blog that could" because I think even after a 6 month hiatus, I think this blog with God's help can still be an encouragement to me and others, so I hope to continue it as long as I am able. I am thinking of creating a manifesto or something for this blog too, to define its purpose once again as my life heads in a new direction, but as always, it is your comments and your readership that encourages me to keep going, so thank you!

          Production outages in Asia lend slight support to prices   

By Mark Tay and Oleg Vukmanovic

SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) - Asian spot LNG prices edged up this week as production outages in Australia, Thailand and Russia provided the spot market with some support after multiple weeks of muted activity in the region.

Spot prices for August delivery edged higher to$5.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) 10 cents higher than last week, said five trading sources on Friday.

Production at the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA) A-18 block in the Gulf of Thailand, and Australia's Karratha Gas Plant that hosts the North West Shelf (NWS) project was hit by outages on June 24. Meanwhile, Russia's sole LNG plant at the Sakhalin-2 project was stopped for a planned maintenance from mid-June until mid-July.

The series of outages in the region would have typically caused spot prices to spike, traders said, adding that the limited price rise underscored how thin North Asian demand was.

Deal and market activity has been muted despite North Asia heading into the peak summer demand season as inventories in Japan and South Korea remain full.

"All (the North Asian) buyers have stocks, and don't see any urgency to buy," a trader said. "India also will slow down now as a good monsoon means electricity consumption goes down."

The supply disruptions failed to fully reverse weak Asian spot prices, tightening spreads with key European benchmarks to about 50 cents, and helping sustain a three-month trend of rising deliveries to the continent.

The trend took on a global dimension with spot LNG prices in Japan, Mexico, Spain, Britain, Argentina and the United States trading within the closest range seen since 2009/2010, Thomson Reuters LNG analyst Mathilde Jacobsen said.

Tightening global spreads, such as between Asian and European markets, reflect weak Far East demand and healthy supplies, although there is still no underlying convergence between U.S. Henry Hub gas prices and spot LNG prices on international markets.

With more LNG arriving on Europe’s shores, receiving terminals discharged more gas into local grids, terminal send-out data showed.

Outages at North West Shelf, affecting three of five producing trains, had limited impact on spot prices because the plant mostly supplies Japanese customers who have healthy stored inventories, thus curbing spillover into spot markets.

Production at Train 2 is scheduled to restart between July 1-3, while Train 3 is expected to start up over July 10-15, according to trading sources.

Operations at the JDA A-18 natural gas field in the Gulf of Thailand have yet to resume, Thai energy company PTT said on Friday. The firm declined to specify when operations would restart, but added that it was not seeking LNG imports due to sufficient reserves.

          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.

          Spiral Stairs talks Pavement, Memphis, & how kids are funner   
This Saturday, Growlers will host a bona fide indie-rock icon when Spiral Stairs – aka Scott Kannberg, singer/guitarist in Pavement and Preston School of Industry – rolls through town in support of his latest record, Doris and the Daggers. The show will also be a homecoming of sorts for two Memphis musicians – Snowglobe members Tim Regan and Luke White, who have been playing in Spiral Stairs’ band on this tour. Spiral Stairs spoke to the Flyer from the road this week about his new album, Pavement reunions, working with Regan and White, and more.

The Memphis Flyer: It’s been eight years since your last album, The Real Feel. What have you been up to?
Spiral Stairs: I met a girl from Australia. Got married, moved to Oz. Had a kid. Tended a veggie patch, mowed my lawn. Life stuff. Moved to LA, drove around a lot. Made up some great songs. Oh, and Pavement reunited!

What inspired you to finally get back in the studio?
I was ready again. It takes me awhile. I meant to do it earlier but the kid was funner. And I wanted to be prepared.

There seem to be a lot of new wave elements - rhythms, synths, chunky guitars - on this record.  Where does that influence come from?

I grew up on new wave. Devo was the first band I saw live in 1980. Also I did a bit of production with Kelley Stoltz, who is so new wave it hurts. He did most of those sounds.

What made you decide to start using the name Spiral Stairs?
I did The Real Feel under the Spiral name in 2009. It felt like the time for a change. New players and a new vibe. Older and wiser.

How did you get hooked up with Tim and Luke? What do you like about playing with those guys?
Lovely gentlemen, and sick musos. Tim runs Nine Mile, which put out the record, and tries to manage me at times - which he does an amazing job considering all the stuff he does. I don't see how he has the time to sleep. Luke came highly recommended and has some licks. Now I want him to start doing more kicks!

Looking back on the Pavement reunions, how do you think they went?  Is it something you would want to do again?

Yes. Of course! It was so fun and amazing to see how our band made people happy! Hopefully in a couple years!

How much of your back catalog are you playing on this tour?  Should folks expect to hear Preston School of Industry and Pavement songs?

We try to do it all! Lots of Pavement for sure! Those songs are really fun to play!

What do you remember about recording Wowee Zowee (1995 Pavement album) at Easley-McCain?  Did y'all have a good time in Memphis?
Soul Food! Easley’s was great, such a good vibe. And Doug and Davis were the best! I can't wait to go back to Payne’s. I wish the Grifters and Guided By Voices would play again!


Spiral Stairs will appear at Growlers on Saturday, July 1 at 9 p.m. with special guests BOINK and Carson McHone. Admission is $10.

          Premiere: Hayden Calnin - 'Collision'   
Hayden Calnin
A remarkable indie-folk voice from Australia...

In one fell swoop Hayden Calnin was able to communicate with millions of people across the globe.

The Australian songwriter was a virtual unknown when his song 'Love' was picked to play over the final scene of the eighth season of the Vampire Diaries.

With his soft delivery and engrossing lyricism, Hayden's quietly beguiling approach was difficult to resist.

New EP 'Dirt' drops this summer, with Clash able to premiere the highly personal new cut 'Collision'. Hayden tells Clash:

"'Collision' is maybe one of the hardest songs I've ever had to write. I wrote it in secret, not really showing anyone until I was comfortable with how it was sounding. It was never meant to be a song with all the hooks and all the standard rules in song structure that you're meant to follow. I avoided that and just let it come out naturally. 'Collision' is an expression about a really dark time for a friend of mine. And, like my previous single, ’Waves’, following that exploration of mental health in young adults."

          Good Trip, Bad Trip: Angus & Julia Stone   
Angus And Julia Stone
The Australian duo recount some touring tales...

Angus & Julia Stone have travelling in their blood.

Brought up in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia, the duo quickly skipped town, enjoying extensive trips abroad.

By broadening their horizons Angus & Julia Stone seemed to broaden their minds, giving their music a definitively universal quality.

The duo will release a new album later this year, and with a host of international shows on the books it seems they'll shortly be doing what they love best - playing music and travelling.

Here, the Australian siblings describe their adventures on the road in Good Trip, Bad Trip...

- - -

Worst Trip…
I don't know about the worst trip, but when we first started touring it was a bit of tougher slog...finishing a gig late, packing the car then then driving through the wee hours of the morning to the next destination. Required a lot of song and sugar to keep us all awake.

Our favourite foreign venue…
Well, we have been lucky to play so many stunning countries, see so many beautiful places and great venues. One that comes to mind right now though is the Théâtre gallo-romain, Lyon. Beautiful amphitheatre.

We’re surprisingly popular in…
Lebanon. We played to an amazing crowd there!

Best or worst exotic foodstuff…
Fine dining in Paris is pretty hard to beat. Road side gas station, pit stop snacks leave a lot to be desired...

Most interesting individual you've met on the road…
One would be a long haired, man bunned, deep conversationalist, guitar playing, yoga nidra addicted, music loving American east coaster Ommie who has become a wonderful, fascinating and much loved friend.

My essential travel item…
Noise cancelling headphones.

Essential travel tip…
Sleep as much as you can and then keep a regular exercise and yoga routine.

KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI

KONSEP KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI
Apabila Anda mendengar kata “Keanekaragaman”, dalam pikiran anda mungkin akan terbayang kumpulan benda yang bermacam-macam, baik ukuran, warna, bentuk, tekstur dan sebagainya. Bayangan tersebut memang tidak salah. Kata keanekaragaman memang untuk menggambarkan keadaan bermacam-macam suatu benda, yang dapat terjadi akibat adanya perbedaan dalam hal ukuran, bentuk, tekstur ataupun jumlah.
Sedangkan kata “Hayati” menunjukkan sesuatu yang hidup. Jadi keanekaragaman hayati menggambarkan bermacam-macam makhluk hidup (organisme) penghuni biosfer.
Keanekaragaman hayati disebut juga “Biodiversitas”. Keanekaragaman atau keberagaman dari makhluk hidup dapat terjadi karena akibat adanya perbedaan warna, ukuran, bentuk, jumlah, tekstur, penampilan dan sifat-sifat lainnya.
Sedangkan keanekaragaman dari makhluk hidup dapat terlihat dengan adanya persamaan ciri antara makhluk hidup. Untuk memahami konsep keseragaman dan keberagaman makhluk hidup pergilah Anda ke halaman sekolah. Amati lingkungan sekitarnya! Anda akan menjumpai bermacam-macam tumbuhan dan hewan. Jika Anda perhatikan tumbuhan-tumbuhan itu, maka Anda akan menemukan tumbuhan-tumbuhan yang berbatang tinggi, misalnya: palem, mangga, beringin, kelapa. Dan yang berbatang rendah, misalnya: cabe, tomat, melati, mawar dan lain-lainnya. Ada tumbuhan yang berbatang keras, dan berbatang lunak. Ada yang berdaun lebar, tetapi ada pula yang berdaun kecil, serta bunga yang berwarna-warni. Begitu pula Anda akan menemukan tumbuhan-tumbuhan yang memiliki kesamaan ciri seperti: tulang daun menyirip atau sejajar, sistem perakaran tunggang atau serabut, berbiji tertutup atau terbuka, mahkota bunga berkelipatan 3 atau 5 dan lain-lain. Begitu pula pada hewan-hewan yang Anda temukan, terdapat hewan-hewan yang bertubuh besar seperti kucing, sapi, kerbau, dan yang bertubuh kecil seperti semut
serta kupu-kupu. Ada hewan berkaki empat, seperti kucing. Berkaki dua seperti ayam. Berkaki banyak seperti lipan dan luwing. Juga akan tampak burung yang memiliki bulu dan bersayap.

Di samping itu, Anda juga akan menemukan hewan yang hidupnya di air seperti: ikan mas, lele, ikan gurame. Dan hewan-hewan yang hidup di darat seperti kucing, burung dan lain-lain. Ada hewan yang tubuhnya ditutupi bulu seperti burung, ayam. Ada yang bersisik seperti ikan gurame, ikan mas, dan ada pula yang berambut seperti kucing, kelinci dan lain-lain.
Dari hasil pengamatan atau observasi di halaman sekolah, Anda telah menemukan adanya keseragaman dan keberagaman pada makhluk hidup.
Untuk lebih memahami uraian diatas, cobalah Anda kerjakan kegiatan praktikum berikut:
1. KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI TINGKAT GEN
Keanekaragaman hayati tidak saja terjadi antar jenis, tetapi dalam satu jenis pun terdapat keanekaragaman. Adanya perbedaan warna, bentuk, dan ukuran dalam satu jenis disebut variasi.
Untuk mendapatkan gambaran yang lebih jelas tentang tingkatan keanekaragaman hayati, simak uraiannya berikut ini:
1. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Gen
Apa yang dimaksud dengan keanekaragaman hayati tingkat gen? Untuk menemukan jawaban ini, cobalah amati tanaman bunga mawar. Tanaman ini memiliki bunga yang berwarna-warni, dapat berwarna merah, putih atau kuning. Atau pada tanaman mangga, keanekaragaman dapat Anda temukan antara lain pada bentuk buahnya, rasa, dan warnanya.
Demikian juga pada hewan. Anda dapat membandingkan ayam kampung, ayam hutan, ayam ras, dan ayam lainnya. Anda akan melihat keanekaragaman sifat antara lain pada bentuk dan ukuran tubuh, warna bulu dan bentuk pial (jengger).

Gambar 1. Keanekaragaman gen pada ayam
Keanekaragaman warna bunga pada tanaman mawar. Bentuk, rasa, warna pada buah mangga, serta keanekaragaman sifat, warna bulu dan bentuk pial pada ayam, ini semua disebabkan oleh pengaruh perangkat pembawa sifat yang disebut dengan gen. Semua makhluk hidup dalam satu spesies/jenis memiliki perangkat dasar penyusun gen yang sama. Gen merupakan bagian kromosom yang mengendalikan ciri atau sifat suatu organisme yang bersifat diturunkan dari induk/orang tua kepada keturunannya.
Gen pada setiap individu, walaupun perangkat dasar penyusunnya sama, tetapi susunannya berbeda-beda bergantung pada masing-masing induknya. Susunan perangkat gen inilah yang menentukan ciri atau sifat suatu individu dalam satu spesies.
Apa yang menyebabkan terjadinya keanekaragaman gen? Perkawinan antara dua individu makhluk hidup sejenis merupakan salah satu penyebabnya. Keturunan dari hasil perkawinan memiliki susunan perangkat gen yang berasal dari kedua induk/orang tuanya. Kombinasi susunan perangkat gen dari dua induk tersebut akan menyebabkan keanekaragaman individu dalam satu spesies berupa varietas-varietas (varitas) yang terjadi secara alami atau secara buatan.
Keanekaragaman yang terjadi secara alami adalah akibat adaptasi atau penyesuaian diri setiap individu dengan lingkungan, seperti pada rambutan. Faktor lingkungan juga turut mempengaruhi sifat yang tampak (fenotip) suatu individu di samping ditentukan oleh faktor genetiknya (genotip). Sedangkan keanekaragaman buatan dapat terjadi antara lain melalui perkawinan silang (hibridisasi), seperti pada berbagai jenis mangga.
Perbedaan sifat pada jenis mangga dapat Anda amati pada tabel berikut:
No. Mangga Bentuk Buah Rasa arima
1.
2.
3. golek
kuini
gedong lonjong panjang
bulat telur, besar
bulat, kecil manis
manis
lebih manis tidak wangi
wangi
tidak wangi
Pada manusia juga terdapat keanekaragaman gen yang menunjukkan sifat-sifat berbeda, antara lain ukuran tubuh (besar, kecil, sedang); warna kulit (hitam, putih, sawo matang, kuning); warna mata (biru, hitam, coklat), serta bentuk rambut (ikal, lurus, keriting). Cobalah perhatikan diri Anda sendiri! Ciri atau sifat apa yang Anda miliki? Sesuaikan dengan uraian di atas?
2. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Jenis
Dapatkah Anda membedakan antara tumbuhan kelapa aren, nipah dan pinang? Atau membedakan jenis kacang-kacangan, seperti kacang tanah, kacang buncis, kacang kapri, dan kacang hijau? Atau Anda dapat membedakan kelompok hewan antara kucing,harimau, singa dan citah? Jika hal ini dapat Anda bedakan dengan benar, maka paling tidak sedikitnya anda telah mengetahui tentang keanekaragaman jenis.
Untuk mengetahui keanekaragaman hayati tingkat jenis pada tumbuhan atau hewan, anda dapat mengamati, antara lain ciri-ciri fisiknya. Misalnya bentuk dan ukuran tubuh,warna, kebiasaan hidup dan lain-lain.
Contoh, dalam keluarga kacang-kacangan, antara lain; kacang tanah, kacang kapri, kacang hijau dan kacang buncis. Di antara jenis kacang-kacangan tersebut Anda dapat dengan mudah membedakannya, karena antara mereka ditemukan ciri-ciri yang berbeda antara ciri satu dengan yang lainnya. Misalnya ukuran tubuh atau batang (ada yang tinggi dan pendek); kebiasaan hidup (tumbuh tegak, ada yang merambat), bentuk buah dan biji, warna biji, jumlah biji, serta rasanya yang berbeda.

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman jenis pada kacang-kacangan
Contoh lain, keanekaragaman pada keluarga kucing. Di kebun binatang, Anda dapat mengamati hewan harimau, singa, citah dan kucing.

Gambar 2. Keanek ragaman jenis pada hewan (a) harimau, (b) singan, (c) kucing dan (d) citah.
Walaupun hewan-hewan tersebut termasuk dalam satu familia/suku Felidae, tetapi diantara mereka terdapat perbedaan-perbedaan sifat yang mencolok. Misalnya, perbedaan warna bulu, tipe lorengnya, ukuran tubuh, tingkah laku, serta lingkungan hidupnya.
Cobalah Anda perhatikan perbedaan sifat dari hewan berikut ini :

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman pada suku Palmae
Dari contoh-contoh di atas, Anda dapat mengetahui ada perbedaan atau variasi sifat pada kucing, harimau, singa dan citah yang termasuk dalam familia/suku Felidae. Variasi pada suku Felidae ini menunjukkan keanekaragaman pada tingkat jenis.
Hal yang sama terdapat juga pada tanaman kelapa, aren, pinang, dan lontar yang termasuk suku Palmae atau Arecaceae.
3. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Ekosistem
Di lingkungan manapun Anda di muka bumi ini, maka Anda akan menemukan makhluk hidup lain selain Anda. Semua makhluk hidup berinteraksi atau berhubungan erat dengan lingkungan tempat hidupnya.
Lingkungan hidup meliputi komponen biotik dan komponen abiotik. Komponen biotik meliputi berbagai jenis makhluk hidup mulai yang bersel satu (uni seluler) sampai makhluk hidup bersel banyak (multi seluler) yang dapat dilihat langsung oleh kita. Komponen abiotik meliputi iklim, cahaya, batuan, air, tanah, dan kelembaban. Ini semua disebut faktor fisik. Selain faktor fisik, ada faktor kimia, seperti salinitas (kadar garam), tingkat keasaman, dan kandungan mineral.
Baik komponen biotik maupun komponen abiotik sangat beragam atau bervariasi. Oleh karena itu, ekosistem yang merupakan interaksi antara komponen biotik dengan komponen abiotik pun bervariasi pula.
Di dalam ekosistem, seluruh makhluk hidup yang terdapat di dalamnya selalu melakukan hubungan timbal balik, baik antar makhluk hidup maupun makhluk hidup dengan lingkungnnya atau komponen abiotiknya. Hubungan timbal balik ini menimbulkan keserasian hidup di dalam suatu ekosistem. Apa yang menyebabkan terjadinya keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem? Perbedaan letak geografis antara lain merupakan faktor yang menimbulkan berbagai bentuk ekosistem.

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman ekosistem (a) padang rumput (b) padang tundra (c) gurun pasir
Perbedaan letak geografis menyebabkan perbedaan iklim. Perbedaan iklim menyebabkan terjadinya perbedaan temperature, curah hujan, intensitas cahaya matahari, dan lamanya penyinaran. Keadaan ini akan berpengaruh terhadap jenis-jenis flora (tumbuhan) dan fauna (hewan) yang menempati suatu daerah.
Di daerah dingin terdapat bioma Tundra. Di tempat ini tidak ada pohon, yang tumbuh hanya jenis lumut. Hewan yang dapat hidup, antara lain rusa kutub dan beruang kutub. Di daerah beriklim sedang terdpat bioma Taiga. Jenis tumbuhan yang paling sesuai untuk daerah ini adalah tumbuhan conifer, dan fauna/hewannya antara lain anjing hutan, dan rusa kutub.
Pada iklim tropis terdapat hutan hujan tropis. Hutan hujan tropis memiliki flora (tumbuhan) dan fauna (hewan) yang sangat kaya dan beraneka ragam. Keanekaragaman jenis-jenis flora dan fauna yang menempati suatu daerah akan membentuk ekosistem yang berbeda. Maka terbentuklah keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem.
Totalitas variasi gen, jenis dan ekosistem menunjukkan terdapat pelbagai variasi bentuk, penampakan, frekwensi, ukuran dan sifat lainnya pada tingkat yang berbeda-beda merupakan keanekaragaman hayati.
Keanekaragaman hayati berkembang dari keanekaragaman tingkat gen, keanekaragaman tingkat jenis dan keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Keanekaragaman hayati perlu dilestarikan karena didalamnya terdapat sejumlah spesies asli sebagai bahan mentah perakitan varietas-varietas unggul. Kelestarian keanekaragaman hayati pada suatu ekosistem akan terganggu bila ada komponen-komponennya yang mengalami gangguan.
Gangguan-gangguan terhadap komponen-komponen ekosistem tersebut dapat menimbulkan perubahan pada tatanan ekosistemnya. Besar atau kecilnya gangguan terhadap ekosistem dapat merubah wujud ekosistem secara perlahan-lahan atau secara cepat pula. Contoh-contoh gangguan ekosistem , antara lain penebangan pohon di hutan-hutan secara liar dan perburuan hewan secara liar dapat mengganggu keseimbangan ekosistem. Gangguan tersebut secara perlahan-lahan dapat merubah ekosistem sekaligus mempengaruhi keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Bencana tanah longsor atau letusan gunung berapi, bahkan dapat memusnahkan ekosistem. Tentu juga akan memusnahkan keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Demikian halnya dengan bencana tsunami.
KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI INDONESIA
Tahukah Anda, bahwa Indonesia merupakan salah satu dari tiga Negara yang memiliki keanekaragaman hayati yang tinggi? Dua negara lainnya adalah Brazil dan Zaire. Tetapi dibandingkan dengan Brazil dan Zaire, Indonesia memiliki keunikan tersendiri. Keunikannya adalah disamping memiliki keanekragaman hayati yang tinggi, Indonesia mempunyai areal tipe Indomalaya yang luas, juga tipe Oriental, Australia, dan peralihannya. Selain itu di Indonesia terdapat banyak hewan dan tumbuhan langka, serta hewan dan tumbuhan endemik (penyebaran terbatas).
Untuk lebih memahami materi tersebut, silakan Anda simak uraian mengenai keaneragaman hayati yang terdapat di Indonesia berikut ini!
Indonesia terletak di daerah tropik sehingga memiliki keanekaragaman hayati yang tinggi dibandingkan dengan daerah subtropik (iklim sedang) dan kutub (iklim kutub). Tingginya keanekaragaman hayati di Indonesia ini terlihat dari berbagai macam ekosistem yang ada di Indonesia, seperti: ekosistem pantai, ekosistem hutan bakau, ekosistem padang rumput, ekosistem hutan hujan tropis, ekosistem air tawar, ekosistem air laut, ekosistem savanna, dan lain-lain. Masing-masing ekosistem ini memiliki keaneragaman hayati tersendiri.
Tumbuhan (flora) di Indonesia merupakan bagian dari geografi tumbuhan Indo-Malaya. Flora Indo-Malaya meliputi tumbuhan yang hidup di India, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Filipina. Flora yang tumbuh di Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Filipina sering disebut sebagai kelompok flora Malesiana.
Hutan di daerah flora Malesiana memiliki kurang lebih 248.000 species tumbuhan tinggi, didominasi oleh pohon dari familia Dipterocarpaceae, yaitu pohon-pohon yang menghasilkan biji bersayap. Dipterocarpaceae merupakan tumbuhan tertinggi dan membentuk kanopi hutan. Tumbuhan yang termasuk famili Dipterocarpaceae misalnya Keruing ( Dipterocarpus sp), Meranti (Shorea sp), Kayu garu (Gonystylus bancanus), dan Kayu kapur (Drybalanops aromatica).
Hutan di Indonesia merupakan bioma hutan hujan tropis atau hutan basah, dicirikan dengan kanopi yang rapat dan banyak tumbuhan liana (tumbuhan yang memanjat), seperti rotan. Tumbuhan khas Indonesia seperti durian (Durio zibetinus), Mangga (Mangifera indica), dan Sukun (Artocarpus sp) di Indonesia tersebar di Sumatra, Kalimantan, Jawa dan Sulawesi.
Sebagai negara yang memiliki flora Malesiana apakah di Malaysia dan Filipina juga memiliki jenis tumbuhan seperti yang dimiliki oleh Indonesia? Ya, di Malaysia dan Filipina juga terdapat tumbuhan durian, mangga, dan sukun. Di Sumatera, Kalimantan, dan Jawa terdapat tumbuhan endemik Rafflesia. Tumbuhan ini tumbuh di akar atau batang tumbuhan pemanjat sejenis anggur liar, yaitu Tetrastigma.

Bagaimana dengan wilayah Indonesia bagian timur? Apakah jenis tumbuhannya sama? Indonesia bagian timur, tipe hutannya agak berbeda. Mulai dari Sulawesi sampai Irian Jaya (Papua) terdapat hutan non?Dipterocarpaceae. Hutan ini memiliki pohon-pohon sedang, diantaranya beringin (Ficus sp), dan matoa (Pometia pinnata). Pohon matoa merupakan tumbuhan endemik di Irian.
Selanjutnya, mari kita lihat hewan (fauna) di Indonesia. Hewan-hewan di Indonesia memiliki tipe Oriental (Kawasan Barat Indonesia) dan Australia (Kawasan Timur Indonesia) serta peralihan. Hewan-hewan di bagian Barat Indonesia (Oriental) yang meliputi Sumatera, Jawa, dan Kalimantan, memiliki ciri-ciri sebagai berikut:
1. Banyak species mamalia yang berukuran besar, misalnya gajah, banteng, harimau, badak. Mamalia berkantung jumlahnya sedikit, bahkan hampir tidak ada.
2. Terdapat berbagai macam kera, misalnya: bekantan, tarsius, orang utan.
3. Terdapat hewan endemik, seperti: badak bercula satu, binturong (Aretictis binturang), monyet (Presbytis thomari), tarsius (Tarsius bancanus), kukang (Nyeticebus coucang).
4. Burung-burung memiliki warna bulu yang kurang menarik, tetapi dapat berkicau. Burung-burung yang endemik, misalnya: jalak bali (Leucopsar nothschili), elang jawa, murai mengkilat (Myophoneus melurunus), elang putih (Mycrohyerax latifrons).
Sekarang mari kita lanjutkan dengan hewan-hewan yang terdapat di Kawasan Indonesia Timur. Jenis-jenis hewan di Indonesia bagian timur, yaitu Irian, Maluku, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, relatif sama dengan Australia. Ciri-ciri hewannya adalah:
1. Mamalia berukuran kecil
2. Banyak hewan berkantung
3. Tidak terdapat species kera
4. Jenis-jenis burung memiliki warna yang beragam
Irian Jaya (Papua) memiliki hewan mamalia berkantung, misalnya: kanguru (Dendrolagus ursinus), kuskus (Spiloeus maculatus). Papua juga memiliki kolek si burung terbanyak, dan yang paling terkenal adalah burung Cenderawasih (Paradiseae sp). Di Nusa Tenggara, terutama di pulau Komodo, terdapat reptilian terbesar yaitu komodo (Varanus komodoensis).
Sedangkan daerah peralihan meliputi daerah di sekitar garis Wallace yang terbentang dari Sulawesi sampai kepulauan Maluku, jenis hewannya antara lain tarsius (Tarsius bancanus), maleo (Macrocephalon maleo), anoa, dan babi rusa (Babyrousa babyrussa).

Kita hidup di permukaan bumi yang sangat luas.Kita hidup berdampingan dengan mahluk hidup yang lainnya,yaitu hewan dan tumbuhan dalam komponen biotik.Keberlangsungan hidup manusia,hewan dan tumbuhan tidak terlepas dari keberadaan unsur-unsur kehidupan nyang berupa komponen abiotik,misalnya udara,sinar matahari,tanah dan air. Komponen biotik dan abiotik berinteraksi di dalam lingkungan,misalnya tumbuhan memerlukan tanah sebagai midia tumbuhnya. Tumbuhan juga butuh sinar mata hari dan udara untuk proses pertumbuhan dan fotosintesis. Ada kalanya manusia juga berperan dalam keberlangsungan hidup tumbuhan.

          Düsseldorf decor openingsrit Tour   

DÜSSELDORF (ANP) - Net als twee jaar geleden in Utrecht begint de Ronde van Frankrijk dit jaar met een individuele tijdrit, die wat langer is dan een traditionele proloog. In Düsseldorf ligt een parcours over 14 kilometer, tegen 13,7 kilometer in een toen snikheet Utrecht. De winnaar van destijds, de Australiër Rohan Dennis, ontbreekt op de startlijst. Favoriet is Tony Martin, de Duitser van Katoesja die een thuiswedstrijd rijdt.

Het bericht Düsseldorf decor openingsrit Tour verscheen eerst op Nieuws.nl.


          Hypokalemic myopathy “A Possible complication of clay eating   
Hypokalemic myopathy “A Possible complication of clay eating Moagi, Mantoa Elizabeth 1 BACKGROUND (geophagia/pica) Pica is a tendency to ingest nonnutritive substances eg. chalk, paper, wood, coal etc. The American Psychiatric Association in its diagnostic and statistical Manual defines Pica as persistent eating of non-nutritive substances that is inappropriate for developmental level, occurs outside culturally sanctioned practice and, if observed during the course of another mental disorder, is sufficiently severe to warrant independent attention. The term pica comes from the Latin word magpie- a bird known for its indiscriminating eating habits. The deliberate consumption of earth, soil or clay is known as geophagia which is the commonest form of pica. Hippocrates is credited with the oldest description of this ancient practice. An ancient Roman textbook, De Medicina, compiled by Celsus during the rein of Emperor Tiberius (13 – 37 AD), mentions earth eating as one of the reasons for bad skin colour. It is a practice that continues to exist in modern times, the full extent however, remains unrealized most probably due to underreporting. Geophagia has been practiced at some stage, virtually world wide eg. America (north & south), Asia, Australia, Britain, India, various parts of Africa. The epidemiology however, is still unknown due to the lack of studies in this regard. Thesis(M Med(Neurology))--University of Limpopo(Medunsa Campus),2009.
          You Choose! What's Your Favorite Color? by Eric Carle   
If we had to guess Eric Carle's favorite color, we might say GREEN. After all, he's famously done a hungry green caterpillar, a greedy green python, a green elephant, a foolish green tortoise, green dragons, and even a green red fox. But then he's also famously done a brown bear, of course, a black and white panda, a homeless red hermit crab and a grouchy red ladybug, a blue horse, and confused chameleon of many hues. A proponent of strong, assertive colors, Carle has featured most of them in his seventy-plus books.

But in his latest picture book, What's Your Favorite Color? (Henry Holt and Company, 2017) Carle confesses that his favorite color is YELLOW, and backs that assertion up with his trademark yellow sun, indeed appearing in many of his books.

Color is one of the artist's main tools, and in this latest companion book to his What's Your Favorite Animal? (see my 2014 review here), Eric Carle invites fifteen of his famous colleagues to submit their favorite, with a show-and-tell on the features of their chosen color.

Bryan Collier favors BLUE, the blue of the balloons that makes him and his little daughter smile. Anna Dewdney picks PURPLE, the purple of the peacock in her yard and of the pantsuit in her closet. Ettienne Delessert insists on the indigo hue of Tuareg veils in the desert, and Yuyi Morales picks the vibrant Mexican pink of bougainvillea blossoms.

Melissa Sweet counters with the gray of a Maine morning, the gray of fog, seagulls, and granite; while William Low selects BROWN, the color of his own neighborhood. Philip C. Stead's favorite is GREEN, the green of an elephant who just feels like being green one day, and Lauren Castillo loves the WHITE of snow that changes everything to white. Mike Curato picks MINT GREEN because it's the color of his favorite ice cream cone. Frann Preston-Gannon prefers ORANGE, while Jill McElmurray elects BLACK for its unpredictability.  Mark Martin chooses the contrast of CRIMSON RED, the color of a flashy Australian parrot.

The venerable Uri Shulevitz can't seem to choose just one, because, as he says, "a single color may feel lonely."  So ALL COLORS it is!  Carle's endpapers also salute several hues, with simple vertical wide-brush strokes that present stunning paintings on their own.

Carle, the unofficial dean of American picture book artists, has created a book which honors his colleagues and no doubt will have young readers musing about their own favored hues.  This one is a great choice for libraries, for a favorite young artist,  or a favorite art teacher to use with classes. "A creative collection to savor one-on-one or to spark classroom art and writing exercises," suggests School Library Journal's starred review.
          Comment on Blackbirding: a story of forced labour in Australia by D. As in the Letter (@MostlyApples)   
Although my primary school did teach us about blackbirding (albeit in a somewhat sanitised way), it seems to be a part of our history that a surprising number of Australians are ignorant about.
          On This Day in Math - July 1   

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty
a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, 
without appeal to any part of our weaker nature,
without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, 
yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. 
 The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, 
the sense of being more than Man, 
which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, 
is to be found in mathematics as surely as in poetry.
--BERTRAND RUSSELL,


The 182nd day of the year; there are 182 connected bipartite graphs with 8 vertices. *What's So Special About This Number

The 182nd prime (1091) is the smaller of a pair of twin primes (the 40th pair, actually) *Math Year-Round ‏@MathYearRound(Students might convince themselves that it was not necessary to say it was the smaller of the pair.)

Language time:
182 is called a pronic, promic, or heteromecic and even an oblong number. Pronic Numbers are numbers that are the product of two consecutive integers; 2, 6, 12, 20, ..(doubles of triangular numbers).  Pronic seems to be a misspelling of promic, from the Greek promekes, for rectangular, oblate or oblong. Neither pronic nor promic seems to appear in most modern dictionaries. Richard Guy pointed out to the Hyacinthos newsgroup that pronic had been used by Euler in series one, volume fifteen of his Opera, so the mathematical use of the "n" form has a long history.

Oblong is from the Latin ob (excessive) + longus (long). The word oblong is also commonly used as an alternate name for a rectangle. In his translation of Euclid's "Elements", Sir Thomas Heath translates the Greek word eteromhkes[hetero mekes - literally "different lengths"] in Book one, Definition 22 as oblong. . "Of Quadrilateral figures, a square is that which is both equilateral and right-angled; an oblong that which is right angled but not equilateral...". (note that with this definition, a square is not a subset of rectangles.)


EVENTS

1349 Sometimes, a little astronomical knowledge can be a dangerous thing, even to those who possess it. A tale from medieval England is passed down from the chronicles of the scholar Thomas Bradwardine of a witch who attempted to force her will on the people through knowledge of an impending eclipse. Bradwardine, who had studied astronomical predictions of Arabian astronomers, saw through the ruse, and matched the prediction of the July 01, 1349 A.D. lunar eclipse with a more precise one of his own. No word survives as to the fate of the accused, but one can only suspect banishment or worse.*listosaur.com

1694 Opening of the University of Halle in Germany. Georg Cantor later taught there. *VFR

1770 – Lexell's Comet passed closer to the Earth than any other comet in recorded history, approaching to a distance of 0.0146 a.u. *OnThisDay & Facts ‏@NotableHistory discovered by astronomer Charles Messier

1798 Napoleon’s fleet reached Alexandria, bearing Monge and Fourier.*VFR

1819 William George Horner’s (1786–1837) method of solving equations is presented to the Royal Society.*VFR In numerical analysis, the Horner scheme (also known as Horner algorithm), named after William George Horner, is an algorithm for the efficient evaluation of polynomials in monomial form. Horner's method describes a manual process by which one may approximate the roots of a polynomial equation. The Horner scheme can also be viewed as a fast algorithm for dividing a polynomial by a linear polynomial with Ruffini's rule. Student's often learn this process as synthetic division.  *Wik

1856 Weierstrass appointed Professor of Mathematics at the Royal Polytechnic School in Berlin. *VFR

In 1858, the Wallace-Darwin theory of evolution was first published at the Linnaean Society in London*. The previous month Charles Darwin received a letter from Alfred Wallace, who was collecting specimens in the East Indies. Wallace had independently developed a theory of natural selection - which was almost identical to Darwin's. The letter asked Darwin to evaluate the theory, and if worthy of publication, to forward the manuscript to Charles Lyell. Darwin did so, almost giving up his clear priority for he had not yet published his masterwork The Origin of Species. Neither Darwin nor Wallace were present for the oral presentation at the Linnaean Society, where geologist Charles Lyell and botanist Joseph Hooker presented both Wallace's paper and excerpts from Darwin's unpublished 1844 essay.*TIS
In his annual report the following May, society president Thomas Bell wrote, “The year which has passed has not, indeed, been marked by any of those striking discoveries which at once revolutionize, so to speak, the department of science on which they bear.” *Futility Closet

1873 From a letter dated July 1, 1873, in the Coast Survey files in the National Archives in Washington. Peirce writes, "Newcomb, in a paper .... says he finds that pendulums hung by springs twist and untwist as they oscillate and says this will affect the time of oscillation."The Charles S. Peirce-Simon Newcomb Correspondence by Carolyn Eisele.

1894 The New York Mathematical Society changed its name to the American Mathematical Society to reflect its national charter. [AMS Semicentennial Publications, vol. 1, p. 74]. *VFR

1908 International agreement to use SOS for distress signal signed. An International Radiotelegraphic Convention, ... met in Berlin in 1906. This body signed an international agreement on November 3, 1906, with an effective date of July 1, 1908. An extensive collection of Service Regulations was included to supplement the Convention, and in particular Article XVI adopted Germany's Notzeichen distress signal as the international standard, stating: "Ships in distress shall use the following signal: · · · — — — · · · repeated at brief intervals". *Citizens Compendium

1918 Florian Cajori (1859–1930) appointed professor of the history of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, one of the few such chairs in the the world. During the next twelve years he published 159 papers on the history of mathematics. *VFR

1964 The New York Times, in a full page ad, announced that Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward would play a game on an elliptical pool table. It had a pocket at one focus so that if the ball passed over the other focus it would bank off the rail into the pocket. [UMAP Journal, 4(1983), p. 176; Recreational Mathematics Magazine, no. 14, January-February 1964] *VFR

1980 A method of trisecting any given acute angle Origami is demonstrated. Hisashi Abe invented this idea and published in July, 1980 edition of the Japanese journal "Suugaku Seminar"(Mathematics Seminar). For this method, and more ways to trisect the angle, see this post.

2010 Grigori Yakovlevich Perelman turned down the Clay Millineum prize of one million dollars, saying that he considers his contribution to proving the Poincaré conjecture to be no greater than that of Richard Hamilton, who introduced the theory of Ricci flow with the aim of attacking the geometrization conjecture. On March 18 It had been announced that he had met the criteria to receive the first Clay Millennium Prize for resolution of the Poincaré conjecture. *Wik

2015 Michael Elmhirst Cates, becomes the 19th Lucasian Professor of Mathematic at the University of Cambridge. Professor Cates is a physicist and Professor of Natural Philosophy and Royal Society Research Professor at the University of Edinburgh. Previous recognitions for Prof. Cates include Maxwell Medal and Prize (1991), the Paul Dirac Medal and Prize (2009), and the Weissenberg Award (2013). He will assume the chair from another Physicist, Michael Green. He follows a line that began with Isaac Barrow and Isaac Newton and includes Charles Babbage, Paul Dirac, and Stephen Hawking


BIRTHS

1646 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (July 1, 1646 – November 14, 1716) born in Leipzig, Germany. Leibniz occupies a prominent place in the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy. He developed the infinitesimal calculus independently of Isaac Newton, and Leibniz's mathematical notation has been widely used ever since it was published. He became one of the most prolific inventors in the field of mechanical calculators. While working on adding automatic multiplication and division to Pascal's calculator, he was the first to describe a pinwheel calculator in 1685[4] and invented the Leibniz wheel, used in the arithmometer, the first mass-produced mechanical calculator. He also refined the binary number system, which is at the foundation of virtually all digital computers. In philosophy, Leibniz is mostly noted for his optimism, e.g. his conclusion that our Universe is, in a restricted sense, the best possible one that God could have created. Leibniz, along with René Descartes and Baruch Spinoza, was one of the three great 17th century advocates of rationalism. The work of Leibniz anticipated modern logic and analytic philosophy, but his philosophy also looks back to the scholastic tradition, in which conclusions are produced by applying reason to first principles or a priori definitions rather than to empirical evidence. Leibniz made major contributions to physics and technology, and anticipated notions that surfaced much later in biology, medicine, geology, probability theory, psychology, linguistics, and information science. He wrote works on politics, law, ethics, theology, history, philosophy, and philology. Leibniz's contributions to this vast array of subjects were scattered in various learned journals, in tens of thousands of letters, and in unpublished manuscripts. As of 2010, there is no complete gathering of the writings of Leibniz.*Wik

1779 John Farrar (July 1, 1779 – May 8, 1853) born at Lincoln, Massachusetts. As Hollis professor of mathematics and natural philosophy at Harvard, he was responsible for a sweeping modernization of the science and mathematics curriculum, including the change from Newton’s to Leibniz’s notation for the calculus. *VFR

1788 Jean Victor Poncelet (July 1, 1788 – December 22, 1867) born in Metz, France. He taught engineering and mechanics, but had a hobby of much greater interest—projective geometry. *VFR French mathematician and engineer whose study of the pole and polar lines associated with conic led to the principle of duality. While serving as an engineer in Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign as an engineer, he was left for dead at Krasnoy, but then captured. During his imprisonment he studied projective geometry and wrote a treatise on analytic geometry. Released in 1814, he returned to France, and in 1822 published Traité des propriétés projectives des figures in which he presented his fundamental ideas of projective geometry such as the cross-ratio, perspective, involution and the circular points at infinity. As a professor of mechanics (1825-35), he applied mechanics to improve waterwheels and was able to double their efficiency.*TIS

1848 Emil Weyr (1 July 1848 in Prague, Bohemia (now Czech Republic) - 25 Jan 1894 in Vienna, Austria) His father Frantisek Weyr, was a professor of mathematics at a realschule (secondary school) in Prague from 1855. Emil was four years older than his brother Eduard Weyr who also became a famous mathematician. Emil attended the realschule in Prague where his father taught, then studied at the Prague Polytechnic from 1865 to 1868 where he was taught geometry by Vilém Fiedler.
He studied in Italy with Cremona and Casorati during the academic year 1870-71 returning to Prague where he continued to teach. In 1872 he was elected to be Head of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists. In 1875 he was appointed as professor of mathematics at the University of Vienna. He, together with his brother Eduard Weyr, were the main members of the Austrian geometric school. They were interested in descriptive geometry, then in projective geometry and their interests turned towards algebraic and synthetic methods in geometry. Among many works Emil Weyr published were Die Elemente der projectivischen Geometrie and Über die Geometrie der alten Aegypter.
Emil Weyr led the geometry school in Vienna throughout the 1880's up until his death. Together with Gustav von Escherich, Emil Weyr founded the important mathematical journal Monatshefte fuer Mathematik und Physik in 1890. The first volumes of the journal contain papers written by his brother Eduard. In 1891 Emil Weyr became one of the first 19 founder members of the Royal Czech Academy of Sciences. *SAU

1957 Donald McIntosh (Banffshire, 13 January 1868 – Invernesshire, 1 July 1957) graduated from the University of Aberdeen and taught at George Watson's Ladies College in Edinburgh. He was appointed a Director of Education. He became Secretary of the EMS in 1899 and President in 1905. *SAU

1963 Bevan Braithwaite Baker (1890 in Edinburgh, Scotland - 1 July 1963 in Edinburgh, Scotland) graduated from University College London. After service in World War I he became a lecturer at Edinburgh University and was Secretary of the EMS from 1921 to 1923. He left to become Professor at Royal Holloway College London. *SAU

1971 Sir William Lawrence Bragg (31 Mar 1890; 1 Jul 1971 at age 81) was an Australian-English physicist and X-ray crystallographer who at the early age of 25, shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 (with his father, Sir William Bragg). Lawrence Bragg formulated the Bragg law of X-ray diffraction, which is basic for the determination of crystal structure: nλ = 2dsinθ which relates the wavelength of x-rays, λ, the angle of incidence on a crystal, θ, and the spacing of crystal planes, d, for x-ray diffraction, where n is an integer (1, 2, 3, etc.). Together, the Braggs worked out the crystal structures of a number of substances. Early in this work, they showed that sodium chloride does not have individual molecules in the solid, but is an array of sodium and chloride ions. *TIS

1983 Richard Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983) was a U.S. engineer and architect who developed the geodesic dome, the only large dome that can be set directly on the ground as a complete structure, and the only practical kind of building that has no limiting dimensions (i.e., beyond which the structural strength must be insufficient). Fuller also invented a wide range of other paradigm-shifting machines and structural systems. He was especially interested in high-strength-to-weight designs, with a maximum of utility for minimum of material. His designs and engineering philosophy are part of the foundation of contemporary high-tech design aesthetics. He held over 2000 patents.*TIS

          Top Vatican adviser to Pope Francis, Cardinal Pell charged with sex abuse   
Australian police on Thursday charged Cardinal George Pell, a top adviser to Pope Francis, with multiple historical sex crimes, bringing a worldwide abuse scandal to the heart of the Vatican. As Vatican economy minister, Pell is the highest-ranking Church official to face such accusations. He asserted his innocence and said the pontiff had given him …
          For The Cardinal-Prefect, "My Day in Court"   
For all the spectacles the Vatican tends to witness, this one was simply surreal.

At the same dais where the Pope's major documents are unveiled and the global press briefed on Catholicism's showcase events – on what's usually one of the most joyous feasts of the year – today the Curia's third-ranking cardinal addressed his new fate as the church's most senior figure by far to face criminal charges of sexual abuse:


To understand the full import of Cardinal George Pell's return to Australia to appear in court and "clear my name," there's more to it than his current profile as the founding Secretary for the Economy, initially entrusted by Pope Francis with sweeping powers over finances and personnel across the Holy See's sprawling apparatus.

Indeed, what makes the 76 year-old prelate's quick move to go home for an 18 July initial hearing so significant is that Pell has not returned to his homeland since departing in early 2014 to take up his Vatican post – neither for the late 2014 installation of his hand-picked successor in Sydney, Archbishop Anthony Fisher, nor for what became a four day summons to testify before the national inquiry on religious institutions' handling of child abuse, obtained by video link from Rome.

With the scenario of a first-ever court process against a cardinal on sex crimes alleged by "multiple claimants" – the precise nature of which have not been clarified by law enforcement in his native state of Victoria – the Italian media's traditional summer "soap opera" involving the church is now set, albeit some 4,000 miles afield.

Still, despite the inevitable circus that will surround the scrutiny on one of the top rank's most enduring figures – a presence on the global scene over some two decades – for the apex of the Catholic world, it just doesn't get more serious than this.

For starters, even as Pell announced his own "leave" from his Vatican duties – and the Holy See's lead spokesman, Greg Burke, indicated that the cardinal would not "participate in public liturgies" for the duration of the judicial process – the moves amount to a de facto suspension from ministry.

Regardless of whose volition spurred the act, a recusal of the kind is without precedent for a top Curial official. What's more, however, while two decades of revelations of abuse and cover-up have been treated as a political football among the church's ideological camps, Pell is one of the few major prelates whose trajectory and alliances cut across partisan lines.

Long a favorite of the Catholic right for his unapologetic approach to moral teachings, the Oxford-trained onetime fullback – who's long relished his reputation for being a "bull in a china shop" – was initially tapped by then-Pope Benedict XVI to take the helm of the Congregation for Bishops in 2009, a move which would've made the Aussie the first prelate from the English-speaking world to oversee the all-powerful body that recommends candidates for appointments to the pontiff.

In response, what was widely perceived in Rome as a "smear campaign" went into overdrive, raising the specter of a 2002 allegation of abuse against the cardinal which dated to the 1960s. Though Pell had been cleared years earlier by an internal probe chartered by the archdiocese of Sydney, conducted by a retired judge – during which he stood aside as archbishop for several months – the ferocity of opposition to Benedict's plan led the now-retired Pope to scuttle the move before it was formally made. (Along the way, however, Pell's hard-charging style saw him successfully tackle another high-wire Vatican mission: as chair of the Vox Clara committee of senior prelates tasked with managing English liturgical translations, he led the push that brought the group's major project – the long-stymied overhaul of the Roman Missal – to completion and a historic implementation across the Anglophone world in 2011.)

Of course, that wouldn't be the end of the story. Perceived by many as angling for a Roman office from his days as an auxiliary in Melbourne – when, as one Curialist recalled, Pell "was always showing up" at the Vatican – the 2012 outbreak of the Vatileaks fiasco provided the cardinal with an opportunity for payback, and Benedict took him up on it, bringing Pell into an ad hoc group of cardinal-advisers Papa Ratzinger had convened on tackling the crisis.

Months later, the election of Pope Francis would surprisingly bring the Australian's rebound to its zenith – with his profile as a blunt, sharp-elbowed manager (and one seen as wronged by the Vatican's old guard), Pell's temporal acumen landed him a seat on the new pontiff's "Gang of 8" for the reform of the Curia (below), arguably the most surprising choice for the group given his conservative leanings.

Less than a year afterward, Francis would deliver the ultimate call – with the new Pope and his "crown council" determined to clean up the famously murky orbit of the Holy See's finances, Pell was unveiled as the choice to consolidate all control of budgets and investments under one umbrella, a first-ever CFO to replace the small village of separate entities which oversaw various pieces of the books, with varying degrees of success.

To say that the Aussie was ready would be an understatement – Pell's full-time arrival in Rome came shortly after the opening of the Domus Australia, a onetime convent converted into a hostel and event center for pilgrims from Down Under, with an ample living space already created for himself.

To be sure, though, if there was one area that the natives guarded more jealously than appointments, it was the money – and Francis' putting Pell in charge of it was greeted as something of an apocalyptic event. Unlike Benedict, however, Papa Bergoglio's Italian stubbornness wouldn't be as easily conquered.

At least, that's how it seemed at the start. While Francis has stood by his man – re-confirming the cardinal's position after he reached the retirement age of 75 last year – the Curia's penchant for bureaucratic turf-war has challenged Pell's mandate at practically every turn and made significant inroads against the new bureau's initial remit, most prominently in last year's move to suspend a first-ever external audit of all Vatican entities, which had been ordered by the Secretariat.

At the same time, the financial reform hit another major speed-bump last week as Libero Milone – the freshly empowered auditor-general hired by Pell's team – suddenly resigned from the post as reports on the move spoke of an unspecified "ugly situation" that could "get worse."

Amid the fallout from Milone's surprise departure, the Council for the Economy – the mixed group of  15 top prelates and lay experts to which Pell's Secretariat reports – had already summoned its members to an extraordinary meeting set for early July in Rome to discuss the way forward. With the new development of the charges against the cardinal-prefect – and no clarity yet on the leadership of the Economy office in the wake of Pell's leave for the court case – any long-term resolutions just became considerably more difficult.

Back in Australia, meanwhile, the indictment has come as a fresh firestorm for a church already struggling under a cloud of abuse developments. With the cardinal's polarizing shadow ever looming large despite years of absence from the scene, the nation's hierarchy has spent 2017 bracing for what's widely expected to be a damning report from the national inquiry on sex-abuse in religious institutions, which is due by the end of its mandate in mid-December.

Beyond the wide attention – and equal heaping of scorn – that Pell's 2016 testimony to the Royal Commission drew, the Australian archbishops were likewise deposed at length by the panel last February. And in another moment of major impact, a rising star of the Aussie bench – Vietnamese-born Franciscan Bishop Vincent Long of Parramatta – revealed to the probe that he had been a victim of abuse by a cleric.

All the while, another major shoe from Rome is likely soon to drop: the Pope's appointment of the next archbishop of Melbourne – already a critical move given the city's place as the continent's largest local church, yet now even more of a "hot seat" as the venue for Pell's state trial on the charges.

In a letter released after the charges were filed, Sydney's Fisher – himself a civil lawyer – warned his clergy and people that his predecessor's return to face justice "will be unsettling for many of us."

While defending Pell as "a man of integrity in his dealings with others... a thoroughly decent man," the archbishop emphasized that "we must now allow the impartial pursuit of justice," adding that the church "is not responsible" for the cardinal's legal costs and won't be footing them.

Keeping with Australian conventions for the accused, a recent biography which levied a new allegation of abuse by Pell has been pulled from sale in Victoria pending the trial. On another context note, the southern coastal state does not allow cameras in its courts, so the impending hearings will not be filmed nor televised.

Kastam: Radar canggih tentera tak hilang, sudah sampai Belanda

  | June 29, 2017
Subromaniam Tholasy berkata, siasatan pihaknya menumpukan pematuhan SOP dalaman ketika pelepasan kontena yang memerlukan permit di bawah Akta Perdagangan Strategik 2010.
PETALING JAYA: Jabatan Kastam menjelaskan kontena mengandungi peralatan radar tentera berteknologi tinggi yang didakwa hilang dari Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas di Johor, sebenarnya sudah sampai ke destinasinya di Pelabuhan Rotterdam, Belanda.
Ketua pengarahnya, Datuk Subromaniam Tholasy dalam satu kenyataan hari ini berkata, siasatan pihaknya menumpukan pematuhan prosedur operasi standard (SOP) dalaman ketika pelepasan kontena yang memerlukan permit di bawah Akta Perdagangan Strategik 2010.
Beliau mengulas pengesahan Ketua Polis Daerah Nusajaya, Nor Hashim Mohamad berhubung laporan yang diterima pihaknya mengenai peralatan radar tentera berteknologi tinggi bernilai jutaan ringgit yang memerlukan kelulusan khas daripada Putrajaya hilang dari Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas.
The Star memetik Penolong Pengarah Kastam (Penguatkuasaan), Datuk Paddy Abd Halim sebagai berkata, sebuah jawatankuasa khas ditubuhkan bagi menyiasat kes tersebut.
Peralatan itu yang tiba dalam sebuah kontena dari Australia bulan lalu, sepatutnya dihantar ke Belanda melalui Johor.
Bagaimanapun, ia ditahan Jabatan Kastam kerana tiada permit khas dikeluarkan Kementerian Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri di bawah Akta Perdagangan Strategik 2010.
Ia kemudiannya dikesan hilang dalam pemeriksaan audit baru-baru ini.
Ia tiba dalam sebuah kontena dari Australia tetapi menunggu permit khas.

TAK MASUK AKAL, TAK MASUK AKAL, TAK MASUK AKAL...
SERUAN SEGERA SIASAT DAKWAAN DOJ TIDAK MASUK AKAL?
Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali menempelak Majlis Peguam yang meminta kerajaan tidak mengetepikan atau membebaskan individu yang disebut dalam saman sivil Jabatan Kehakiman Amerika Syarikat (DoJ) berhubung dakwaan penyelewengan dana 1MDB.

“Apa dan bagaimana hendak mengulas apabila Majlis Peguam memberi kenyataan tidak masuk akal,” katanya kepada Free Malaysia Today, bertarikh 24 Jun 2017.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika membalas kenyataan Presiden Majlis Peguam, George Varughese yang mensarankan Apandi menghubungi DoJ untuk meminta maklumat berkaitan saman sivil yang difailkan bagi merampas aset yang dikatakan dibeli dengan dana 1MDB.

Kata George Varughese, dakwaan yang terkandung di dalam fail mahkamah DoJ membabitkan pegawai-pegawai 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), ahli keluarga mereka, dan rakan lain - termasuk seorang individu yang digambarkan sebagai ‘MALAYSIA OFFICIAL 1’, yang sejak itu diakui sebagai Perdana Menteri – telah melakukan salah laku.

Majlis Peguam memandang serius tuntutan ini, dan mendapati cara saman sivil ini diremehkan, diketepikan, malahan dikecam oleh pihak berkuasa Malaysia, tanpa menangani isi dakwaan yang dibuat, amat merisaukan dan tidak boleh diterima.

Menurut George Varughese, walaupun dakwaan belum terbukti sehingga penghakiman diberikan oleh mahkamah Amerika Syarikat, adalah penting mereka yang namakan sebagai MALAYSIAN OFFICIAL 1 dan lain-lain, disiasat oleh Kerajaan Malaysia secara menyeluruh dan objektif, berdasarkan bukti, demi kepentingan ketelusan, akauntabiliti dan tadbir urus yang baik.

“Tanpa berbuat demikian, terlalu awal bagi Kerajaan untuk tidak mengambil kira dakwaan ini, atau melepaskan mana-mana individu atau syarikat daripada sebarang salah laku.” Katanya.

Pada 28 April 2016, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) telah mengenakan denda kompaun pentadbiran terhadap 1MDB.

Sebelum siasatan terhadap 1MDB itu, BNM awal tahun 2015, telah bertindak terhadap Ambank, mengeluarkan denda sebanyak RM53.7 juta kerana melanggar obligasi anti-pengubahan wang haram dan kewangan memerangi keganasan.

Di manakah ‘tidak masuk akalnya’ kenyataan Majlis Peguam yang mahu memulihkan Integriti dan kredibiliti institusi kewangan dan badan pengawalseliaan negara ini, di mata negara serta pemerhati global?

Jom kita siasat apa yang tidak masuk akal:

Portal BN Backbenchers Council (BNBBC) pada 21 Jun 2016 mendakwa bahawa seutas rantai berlian merah jambu 22 karat berharga RM116 juta itu tiada ditulis pada semua 251 halaman kenyataan DoJ pada 14 Jun 2017:↓
Sudah tentu penulis BNBBC itu tidak menemui catatan mengenai berlian tersebut kerana dokumen mengenainya hanya dikeluarkan oleh DoJ pada 15 Jun 2017, bukan 14 Jun 2017.↓
‘Tuntutan Jabatan kehakiman Amerika Syarikat terhadap beberapa aset yang ingin disita di negara itu sebagai campur tangan asing’ oleh segerombolan agamawaan yang menggunakan sentimen agama, serupa Utusan Malaysia: ↓
Teruklah Malaysia kalau negara-negara ini semua mencampuri urusan pentadbiran negara:↓
"Kami juga mendapati bahawa tidak ada bukti daripada mana-mana penyiasatan yang dijalankan oleh mana-mana agensi penguatkuasaan undang-undang bagi pelbagai bidang kuasa yang menunjukkan wang disalahgunakan daripada 1MDB; dan bahawa tidak ada sebarang tuduhan jenayah dibuat terhadap mana-mana individu bagi penyelewengan dana daripada 1MDB, " katanya dalam satu kenyataan. Lapor Bernama.↓
Terlebih mengada-ngada pula Bank Negara Malaysia ni. Tak salah buat apa denda?↓
“Sejak siasatan bermula, Miranda Kerr bekerjasama sepenuhnya dan berjanji akan menyerahkan hadiah barang kemas itu kepada kerajaan. Beliau akan terus membantu siasatan dengan apa jua cara yang boleh," kata jurucakap Miranda Kerr↓ 
Sepatutnya model Australia Miranda Kerr ni minta nasihat Pengarah Strategik Komunikasi JASA ni sebelum menyerahkan barangan kemas bernilai USD$8.1 juta kepada DOJ. ↓
Dah habis baca? Cer fikir. Apa yang tak masuk akal?

WAKAKA!

          Apa nak jadi: Peralatan radar tentera pula hilang!   
Peralatan radar hilang: KDN, kastam kena jawab
HASLINA KAMALUDIN  -  29 JUN 2017
Wan Azizah

SHAH ALAM - Kementerian Dalam Negeri dan Jabatan Kastam Diraja Malaysia (Kastam) digesa segera memberi penjelasan terhadap insiden kehilangan peralatan radar ketenteraan di Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas, Johor.

Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail berkata, penjelasan itu penting memandangkan insiden ini melibatkan aspek keselamatan dan hubungan luar negara.

"Selain penjelasan, mereka juga perlu menyatakan langkah-langkah yang akan diambil untuk memastikan keselamatan di pelabuhan-pelabuhan negara ini diperketat.


"Ini kerana insiden ini amat mengejutkan dan merisaukan," katanya dalam satu kenyataan, hari ini.

Menurutnya, kehilangan peralatan radar ketenteraan ini merupakan satu kejadian kebolosan keselamatan negara yang amat serius.

"Peralatan radar ketenteraan bernilai berjuta-juta ringgit yang dalam perjalanan dari Australia ke Netherlands telah ditahan di Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas kerana ketiadaan permit di bawah Akta Perdagangan Strategik 2010 bulan lalu, tetapi didapati telah hilang dan dipercayai telah diseludup keluar dari negara ini.

"Insiden ini bukan sahaja melibatkan kehilangan peralatan ketenteraan yang kini mungkin telah dicuri atau diseludup keluar, tetapi juga menimbulkan persoalan mengenai tahap keselamatan di salah sebuah pelabuhan terpenting di negara ini," katanya.

Jelasnya, apa yang merunsingkan apabila sepatutnya pihak kastam dan pelabuhan mempunyai kawalan keselamatan yang tinggi dan rapi.

"Ini kerana jika peralatan radar ketenteraan boleh dicuri atau diseludup dengan begitu mudah, apatah lagi penyeludupan dadah, pemerdagangan manusia malah juga salah urus kargo atau konsainan bahan berbahaya.

"Amatlah mengecewakan jika wujud sebarang elemen rasuah dan pihak berkongkol di dalam jenayah ini.

"Saya turut menggesa Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) untuk membuat siasatan sepenuhnya kes ini," katanya.

Memetik laporan The Star Online, satu siasatan sedang dijalankan oleh Jabatan Kastam dan Kementerian Perdagangan Antarabangsa  mengenai kehilangan tersebut.

Suatu penyerahan peralatan radar ketenteraan berteknologi tinggi yang bernilai jutaan ringgit dilaporkan hilang dari Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas.

Laporan polis juga telah dibuat mengenai kehilangan itu.

Menerusi laporan portal Astro Awani, laporan yang memetik kata-kata sumber itu mendakwa, sistem radar itu telah ditahan oleh pihak kastam sebaik ia sampai di Australia pada bulan lalu.

Peralatan itu sepatutnya dihantar ke Belanda tetapi ia tidak mempunyai permit, dan terpaksa ditahan oleh pegawai-pegawai kastam.

Tetapi, semasa pemeriksaan audit baru-baru ini, peralatan rahsia itu tidak dijumpai di pelabuhan tersebut.

Laporan itu berkata, pihak kastam telah menubuhkan satu pasukan khas untuk menjalankan siasatan dalaman selain menentukan sama ada prosedur operasi standard (SOP) dipatuhi.

Peralatan sensitif tersebut memerlukan permit di bawah Akta Perdagangan Strategik 2010 dan penalti berat seperti denda setinggi RM10 juta dan hukuman mati boleh dikenakan di bawah Akta berkenaan.

James Dolan is thinking about Phil Jackson’s Future with the Knicks

James Dolan is considering Phil Jackson’s future as the president of the New York Knicks. Dolan had the capacity to eschew the contract at the end of the 2016/2017 season, since both sides were able to exercise a mutual option. The New York Knicks hired Phil Jackson on a 5-year, US$60 million contract back in 2014, amidst harsh criticism from Knicks fans that supported Dolan.

Jackson has been looking to trade Carmelo Anthony recently, but the comments that he’s been making publicly have seen Anthony turned instead into a sympathetic figure in the eyes of most fans and almost all of the media.

The manner in which Jackson treated Anthony was also part of the reason that Kristaps Porzingis missed his exit interview with the Knicks when the season came to an end. Subsequently, Jackson has spoken in public about the Knicks’ options being explored as far as the trade market for Porzingis was concerned.

The Boston Celtics need a commitment from Gordon Hayward before a trade can be finalized for Paul George. The Pacers are perhaps unwilling to wait until the free agency begins in order to agree on a trade, however, and may well start looking elsewhere with their trade talks regarding George.

The Celtics need to maneuver their roster and start unloading salaries, but they do have a contingency plan in place. If Boston is unable to secure the deal with Hayward, it’s possible that they will sign Blake Griffin instead, and then make a trade for Paul George.

Rockets Focus on Trading Anderson if They Need Cap Space

The Houston Rockets have put all of their attention on attempting to find a team with cap space that would allow for the absorption of Ryan Anderson’s contract in order to chase maximum free agency space. Anderson is still owed US$19.6 million and US$61 million in total over the next 3 seasons. The Sacramento Kings are a possibility, since they require a stretch-4 and Anderson is native to that area.

Anderson enjoyed an outstanding 1st season with the Rockets after he was signed from the New Orleans Pelicans. Houston is also chasing Kyle Lowry, Paul Millsap, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in free agency.

Everybody Wants Andre Iguodala

The San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando Magic and Utah Jazz are some of the teams that are set to go in for Andre Iguodala in free agency.

The Golden State Warriors are still hopeful about re-signing Iguodala, and it has not been confirmed whether the player will be meeting with anyone else. Iguodala’s contracted with the Warriors on a 4-year, US$48 million deal back in 2013.

          Actor Criticized For Saying Gay Character He Plays 'Acts Straight And Acts Normal' .   

Actor Matt Wilson appears on the long-running Australian soap opera, Neighbours.

Recently, the 28-year-old straight actor was criticized for making questionable remarks about the gay character he plays on the show.

While appearing on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, he said:

"There are a lot of people who think you should have a gay actor playing a gay character, but that’s like saying you should get someone in a wheelchair to play a character in a wheelchair.

"I think it’s important that we are expressing it. We specifically designed the character to act straight and act normal.

"When I say “normal”, I mean he’s not like the characters on Modern Family, where they are flamboyant and camp and they walk around tiptoeing.

"That creates separation – that’s us and them. It shouldn’t be like that. It should be all equal and no-one should have a problem with that. The way other characters act around my character is that there is never a problem at all."

Social media users had much to say about Wilson's comments:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wilson later issued an apology on Twitter. He writes:

"Choice of words wasn’t right and apologies if it comes across as offensive.

"The message I want to get across (and this is in support of one of my closest friends as he is having issues coming out) that he sick and tired of people assuming that because his sexuality is different to the guy next to him that they “expected him to act different”. This isn’t the case, and shouldn’t be preached on TV.

"Once again – apologies for offending you, I trust you can see through this and see we are promoting the same message."

          It must have been love, but is it over now??   
When I read SwB's post about sports, my mind raced back to when I was young. Maybe like 7 or 8 years. When sports was nothing but pure passion.

When the walls had posters (courtesy Sportstar) of Roberto Baggio, Valderrama, Careca, Canniggia and Enzo Scifo! When I did not talk to mom and skipped breakfast after she did not wake me up to watch Argentina play Romania in the 1990 World Cup! When Argentina's losing to Germany in the 1990 WC Finals and seeing Maradona's tears made me want to thrash Mathhaeus and Voeller.

There was a time when waking up at 4 am to watch Srikkanth and Shastri take on McDermott and Reid and Marshall and Patterson in Australia was routine. When the only one who used to watch cricket in my 3rd standard class was a guy called Chetan.

There was a time when each time Sabatini lost to Graf, the hurt was so much that tears would fill up and flow much to my embarassment! When watching the semis and finals of the French Open and Wimbledon was always accompanied by the sound of pouring rain and when any sport that was shown live on Doordarshan was devoured compulsorily.

When the highlight of Saturday was World of Sports at 3.30 in the afternoon and when sports like billiards and golf and equestrian were watched with zeal just because they were sports and were on TV. And when watching the Rovers Cup finals live on Doordarshan meant less marks in the midterm Dictation exam the next day. There was a time when the sole ambition in life was to play doubles with Leander Paes in the Davis Cup.

That same magic is not there anymore. Maybe Cristiano Ronaldo can never be Diego Maradona. And the joy of watching Kapil Dev and Manoj Prabakhar bowl to Kepler Wessels and Andrew Hudson is not the same as watching Manish Pandey's heroics in the IPL. But maybe its gone. That love for the game that came above everything else. Maybe I am a spoiled fan now. Because now, at the click of a button, I can check the cricket scores and the football scores and the tennis scores in less than a minute. Keeping track of sports across channels robs the charm and the thrill of watching a sport as though your future depended on the result. Watching sports on DD meant undivided attention. Nothing else came in the way, No meal times or phone calls or fights for the remote or the guilty feeling of not having prepared for the exams. It was a simple uncomplicated world where nothing else came before sports on TV.

Times have changed. Now I see kids in Man U jerseys rattle off the names in the EPL at the drop of a hat. They know who Paul Conchesky is and which club he is playing for and what position. And I make a mental note of googling Paul Conchesky because I am too embarassed to say I have no idea who the guy is. When I was their age, no one in my class was as crazy as I was. No one cared about Maradona and no one knew who Sabatini was. In the 6th standard, I was asked to frame a set of questions for the class on sports. It was raining, so PE class meant doing something indoors like a sports quiz where all the 5 rows were seperate teams was and I asked what I thought would be easy questions. Much to my amazement, not many knew what was going on. The tables have turned now. When friends discuss sports, I am forced to pretend that I know who the men's singles number 1 is, which team Ryan Harris plays for, and who is the captain of the men's hockey team. When everyone discusses Formula One, I have to keep quiet because I dont know the F of Formula One.

The lesson is, I guess, this - When you love something with all you have, never lose touch with it. Else, its a hard long road to get back to where you once were. The same passion, the same magic and the same nothing else matters attitude. Its gone and I dont know whether I will get it back.

P. S. -> I miss blogging. I miss the world of the blogs. I have missed out on all the blogs I once used to religiously read everyday. I am getting a hang of what all I have missed out as I read the posts on Swb's blog. Its a lesson for me to never lose track of the blog world. Because sometimes when you can relate and identify with bloggers and have no contact with them except through their blogs, its a pain once you stop checking your Google Reader feeds and you realise you have lost touch with those people. So now on, no more ignoring Google Reader. My favourite blogs which I have missed the most - Swb, Mizohican, Katchucrap, India Uncut and many many more. I have missed you. Also, I will post here more often. With all my willpower and might. I will try to.
          Greedy me   
In about nine hours from now, India take on hosts Australia at the Adelaide Oval.

The last time they were there 4 years ago, I was in the fifth semester of my computer engineering and had an exam in Computer Hardware Design that coincided with India's successful chase in the 4th innings. I decided to watch the match instead of studying. If i flunked the exam, i could take it again in 6 months. If India won the test match, i was not sure if i would ever get to see them win another test match in Australia. I got 9 marks out of 100 in the exam in a subject where i had scored 22 out of 25 in internal tests. It was worth the gamble. India won. I cleared the paper later.

India won in Australia again last week, this time in Perth. No exams this time. No bunking them either.

For the next 5 days i will pray for another win. Greedy me.

          Comment on Adani: trouble on all fronts by James Wimberley   
What is the new capital requirement of the mine and rail line? On pages 6-7 of the paper, JQ gives it at $3.3 bn. Later (Appendix) he cites IEEFA's estimate of $5.3 bn. The page 3 sentence equates the new funding requirement with an equity charge on Adani. This assumes no commercial bank lending will be forthcoming from anybody. This is argued later, but the cross-reference is missing. The Indian press report adds the picturesque detail that both Adani and Tata have offered to sell majority equity stakes in their separate Mundra plants for 1 rupee each. "Stranding" is far too genteel an image for the Pearl Harbor destruction of value in coal going on today. Tell me, Senator Canavan: if a 4 GW power station in India, designed to burn imported coal, is worth 1 rupee (with a pair going at that price), how many rupees is a new Australian mine targeting the same market worth? Wouldn't Adani's Mundra (Tata' is designed for lignite) be a good investment for the appropriately named NAIF? Commenters please don't blame me if Canavan takes up the idea.

De acuerdo con la policía del estado de Victoria, ninguno delos señalamientos contra el purpurado,de 76 años ha sido probado ante un juzgado, pero deberá comparecer ante el Tribunal de Magistrados de Melbourne el 18 de julio. Pell ya respondió de manera voluntaria al interrogatorio de tres oficiales australianos que viajaron a Roma en octubre de 2016, ocasión en que negó de manera tajante todas las acusaciones.

          Alianza del Pacífico inicia su proceso de expansión con cuatro asociados   

Cali, Colombia. La Alianza del Pacífico (AP) comenzó este viernes su proceso de expansión con la admisión de Australia, Canadá, Nueva Zelandia y Singapur como miembros asociados, para aumentar el comercio y las inversiones con la región Asía-Pacífico, una decisión que contrasta con las medidas proteccionistas de Estados Unidos.

En la XII Cumbre de la AP que se realizó en la ciudad de Cali, Colombia, Chile, México y Perú decidieron el paso de apertura del un bloque que en su conjunto representa la octava economía del mundo y que en seis años logró desgravar de aranceles el 92% de sus productos.

"Esta cumbre abrió un nuevo capítulo en la historia de la Alianza, aprobamos la creación de una categoría de nuevos miembros que hemos denominado Estados asociados y que permite a la alianza como bloque negociar acuerdos por ejemplo de libre comercio con terceros", dijo el presidente de Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, al clausurar el encuentro de mandatarios.

Los países admitidos iniciarán en septiembre negociaciones de acuerdos comerciales con la AP y su ingreso como asociados al bloque solo será efectivo cuando concluyan dichas conversaciones.

La AP, que inició en el 2011 como una iniciativa de integración regional, ha tenido logros significativos en temas comerciales, financieros, empresariales, académicos y de movilidad de personas.

"Esto será solo el comienzo de una gran plataforma en pro de la integración", dijo la presidenta de Chile, Michelle Bachelet, quien también destacó los acercamientos de la AP en busca de acuerdos con Mercosur, la Asociación de Naciones del Sudeste Asiático (ASEAN) y el Foro de Cooperación Económica Asia-Pacífico (APEC).

"Esto nos permitirá ampliar de forma bien importante y bien significativa, el mercado consumidor con el cual tendremos una gran oportunidad todos los países miembros y asociados para tener una relación económica mucho más intensa", aseguró por su parte el presidente de México, Enrique Peña Nieto, al referirse a la admisión de Australia, Canadá, Nueva Zelandia y Singapur.

El mandatario de Perú, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, sostuvo que la llegada de los Estados asociados es prometedora y permitirá a la AP avanzar en su proceso de expansión.

"Son países muy interesantes. Son países que han generado tremendo crecimiento e inclusión económica, que han atraído inmigrantes en vez de generar emigrantes", aseguró Kuczynski.

Los países que entraron como asociados a la AP se declararon optimistas con las oportunidades comerciales y de inversión que ofrecen Colombia, Chile, México y Perú en sectores como el agrícola, el lácteo y el minero.

La región Asía-Pacífico, hacia donde apunta la AP en su proceso de expansión e integración con otros bloques, alberga al 55% de la población del planeta y concentra el 38 % del Producto Interno Bruto mundial. Además, mueve el 32,9% del total de las importaciones mundiales y tiene un crecimiento superior a 4,5%.

La Alianza del Pacífico, con 52 países observadores, impulsa la apertura y el intercambio comercial que contrasta con decisiones proteccionistas del presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump.

There are places on Earth that are too hostile for most humans, even though they have an atmosphere with oxygen, are warm enough for comfort and have access to food and water. Before spending trillions on getting a settlement established in the infinitely more hostile environment of Mars, I suggest Musk et al spend some years in the Taklamakan in China, Gibson Desert in Australia or even Death Valley. They might then understand why humans prefer living in green and temperate places like the USA, Europe or even New Zealand.

but for now here are some photos.)

Our view from our hotel room.





Beautiful music playing when we arrived.

Another photo of my dear friend, Elissa.
We met in Darwin when we both lived there.
It was so good to catch up!


Over 150 Christian homeschooling mums!

A special message from Sally Clarkson.

and I was thrilled to hear her speak again.

Barb - the lovely lady behind the Mum Heart Conferences in Australia.

Homeschool graduate panel.
This was such a fun session listening to homeschool graduates,
what they loved and hated about homeschooling.
They all spoke very highly of homeschooling!


Day 6

Morning Worship



On our way back to Sydney, another friend from Darwin rode along with us so we could catch up.
After about an hour of chatting and laughing we looked and saw this sign.  Oops!

Another dear friend that I know from our time living in Darwin.

The view from our hotel room - Sydney Harbourview Hotel

We decided to stay here our last night together.
So glad we did, what a beautiful view!

We went down to Circular Quay to have dinner by the Opera House 
and enjoy the lights.






They had a little booth that you could go in and change the lights for the harbour.
It was so cool!  You could change the colours of each building and the bridge.
When you're done, you push a big button then all the lights go off for a second,
and your colours appear!




We thought it was pretty cool to be able to see our breath.  Haha!


Still two more days of my holiday!





             

Breakthrough WA Study Shines A Light On Global Water Contamination

The article below is very long-winded in a typical Leftist style but the essence of it is in the opening paragraphs that I have excerpted below.

I believe the article does address a real problem.  The only surprising thing is its discovery that bore water is a last resort for drinking purposes.  It often has metallic and other unpleasant tastes that should warn that it use for human consumption is risky.

Depending on the contamination it can be purified at some cost but that is rare.  People, black and white,  just take their chances, usually. So it is not surprising that the W.A. government has not funded purification for Aborigines.  Government has many calls on its funds.

Asking the government to go into a large number of black settlements with purification machinery is a big ask when it is always possible for the inhabitants to move into areas where reticulated river water is available. The W.A. government encourages that.

But the Aborigines resist that.  They have a religious attachment to their traditional locations.  So in a sense they have made their choices about what they are exposed to and have to bear the consequences.  Is it fair for them to ask those who pay taxes (they rarely do themselves) to prop up their religious beliefs? As former Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared in March 2015, “what we can’t do is endlessly subsidize lifestyle choices.”


When deep-well bore water arrived in Australian bush communities people thought the big thirst was over. Jeff McMullen reports that a decade long study shows unsafe water is now cutting lives short.

If a baby is fed unsafe water contaminated with chemical nitrates, the child turns blue.

The striking colouring occurs particularly around the eyes and mouth. Blue Baby Syndrome is the decrease of the oxygen carrying capacity of the haemoglobin. It is potentially fatal.

And yet, in scores of communities across Australia many people are still not aware of the growing evidence that nitrates – found naturally in the environment and compounded by mining – are a crucial factor in a devastating epidemic of chronic illness, particularly renal problems afflicting children and adults.

“I never dreamed that our water has such high levels of nitrate contamination,” says Dr Christine Jeffries-Stokes, paediatrician to the Goldfields region in Western Australia.

“Water flows from the Pilbara all the way south to the Great Australian Bight. The critical threat is the nitrates, combined with uranium and arsenic, to create a perfect storm.”

It is this discovery – that not only is there an immediate threat of nitrate poisoning from high levels in the water but also a long-term danger caused by prolonged exposure – that will bring Dr Jeffries-Stokes and her medical team from the Western Desert Kidney Project face to face with the WA Government this week, to present their findings and lobby the government to finally take action.

Co-Chief Investigator of the decade long research project, Annette Stokes says “people are very, very sick”.

“Some already had diabetes and did not know it. Others are progressing to end state renal illness without ever being aware of this water poison.”

“Previously unexplained levels of chronic illness, especially kidney disease afflicting black and white people in remote regions, can now be understood,” adds Dr Jeffries-Stokes. “Governments must take action urgently and it is no good talking about closing hundreds of remote communities and towns. This affects so many people Governments must clean up the water.”

One of Australia’s most respected epidemiologists, Professor Fiona Stanley, has added her voice to the call for urgent action.

“This is a really important public health and human rights issue, particularly for the Aboriginal populations of the eastern Goldfields. The neglect that we have shown these populations over the years is being added to by our reluctance to clean up the water supply,” Professor Stanley says.

          Bournemouth, Huddersfield break their transfer-fee records   

Bournemouth and Huddersfield broke their transfer-fee records on Friday as two of the smallest English Premier League clubs signaled their ambitions ahead of the new season.

Netherlands defender Nathan Ake joined Bournemouth from Chelsea for a reported fee of 20 million pounds ($26 million), in what appears another astute purchase following the arrival of goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and striker Jermain Defoe this offseason.

Huddersfield, one of three promoted teams, signed Australia midfielder Aaron Mooy from Manchester City for an initial fee of 8 million pounds ($10.4 million) following a successful loan spell last season. The fee could rise to 10 million pounds ($13 million) through bonuses.

Mooy, who was recently playing at the Confederations Cup in Russia, was an ever-present for Huddersfield in its promotion campaign, scoring four goals.

It is the second time Huddersfield has broken its transfer record this summer, having bought Belgium striker Laurent Depoitre from Porto for a reported 3.5 million pounds ($4.45 million).

"We are going to give it a good crack this year," Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle said, "but we are also remembering who we are and where we have come from."

Huddersfield will be playing in England's top division for the first time in 45 years, and handed its German-born American manager David Wagner a new two-year contract Friday that tied him to the club until 2019.

"Last season there was interest in David, both domestic and foreign," Hoyle said, "but David stayed loyal to the football club and that means a lot to me."

Wagner said Huddersfield would be "the biggest underdog ever to start in the Premier League."

"Does it change that we are ambitious? Nope," Wagner said. "We are not in the Premier League to say 'Hello' and 'Thank you' after one season. We want to stay there."

Bournemouth, which is about to start its third season in the Premier League, hadn't spent more than 1 million pounds on a player before August 2013.

Ake spent the first half of last season at Bournemouth, scoring three goals in 12 appearances before being recalled in January by Chelsea.

"This is another statement of our intent," said Neill Blake, Bournemouth's chief executive, "and another player who will help drive the club forward."

Sunderland, which was relegated from the Premier League, loaned forward Fabio Borini to AC Milan. The Italian club said the deal involves an "obligation to buy" Borini at the end of his loan spell, the length of which wasn't disclosed.

The 26-year-old Borini scored two league goals for struggling Sunderland last season, and five the season before.

Planean hacer Evento Propio

Hace menos de un mes los productores de vinos del Nuevo Mundo amenazaron con dejar la Vinexpo de Burdeos, la feria del rubro más importante del mundo y a juzgar por los hechos el mensaje iba en serio.
Esto, porque los productores vitivinícolas de Sudáfrica, Nueva Zelandia, Estados Unidos, Australia, Argentina y Chile acusan a los organizadores de trato injusto, problemas de logística y de aire acondicionado, que no permiten presentar sus productos de la mejor manera ante posibles compradores.
Por eso, empresarios y ejecutivos se reunieron en la pasada London Wine -que comenzó el 20 de mayo para discutir la posibilidad de generar un nuevo evento que convoque sólo a los países del Nuevo Mundo.
“Seguimos avanzando en hacer algo, no necesariamente una nueva feria porque aparentemente está saturado, pero sí hacer algo muy potente en algunas de las ferias que ya existen y que en ningún caso es Vinexpo”, dice René Merino, presidente de Vinos de Chile.
El dirigente gremial adelanta que ya están en conversaciones con otras ferias para generar un evento “muy potente” y señala que prefiere no revelar cuáles son hasta que se hayan cerrado las negociaciones.
Los productores nacionales pagaron US$ 600 mil en 2007 por asistir a la Vinexpo de Burdeos. “Si juntamos esa cantidad de dinero y se suma al resto de los países del Nuevo Mundo, tenemos el capital para realizar algo de muy buena calidad que sea capaz de realzar nuestros vinos”, dijo Merino.
Australia no asistió a las dos últimas Vinexpo y el resto de los países deberá conversar con sus asociaciones gremiales para ver si siguen el mismo rumbo. Vinexpo reúne a 2.400 expositores, con 45.000 visitas en promedio.

          More than half of Australia's beef cattle can be f   
More than half of Australia's beef cattle can be found in the coastal areas of Queensland and New South Wales; and the 20 to 30 inch (500-750mm) rainfall belt of Queensland, New South Wales and Northern Victoria, generally provide adequate climatic environments for the growth of psilocybian mushrooms, especially after heavy rains. It has been suggested that "Psilocybe cubensis was introduced into Australia accidentally by early settlers along with their livestock." This same spore dispersal mechanism also probably applies to Copelandia cyanescens, Panaeolus subbalteatus and several additional species known to occur in or around the dung of other ruminants. This includes Psilocybe semilanceata and the non-hallucinogenic "haymaker's" mushroom Panaeolina foenisecii. While cattle are raised in all Australian states, as well as in the central lowlands, recreational users have been known to export these psychoptic species to various areas in Australia from areas where they were collected. In the case of New Zealand, hereafter referred to as NZ, cattle are the primary source for Copelandia cyanescens, but the "liberty cap" mushroom Psilocybe semilanceata only grows in the manured soil of four-legged ruminants and not directly from manure (Jansen, Pers. Comm., 1988). The identification section of this guide documents reported locations for more than 1 dozen species of psilocybian mushrooms in Australia and NZ which most likely have been used at one time or another for recreational purposes.

India clears last Mumbai siege site
By JENNY BARCHFIELD, Associated Press Writer, 1 Dec 08


MUMBAI, India – As authorities finished removing bodies Monday from the bullet- and grenade-scarred Taj Mahal hotel, a Muslim graveyard refused to bury nine gunmen who terrorized this city over three days last week, leaving at least 172 people dead and wreaking havoc at some of its most famous landmarks.

The United States, meanwhile, has told Pakistan it needs to fully cooperate on investigations into the siege.

Pakistan must "follow the evidence wherever it leads," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said during a press conference aboard her plane en route to London. "I don't want to jump to any conclusions myself on this, but I do think that this is a time for complete, absolute, total transparency and cooperation and that's what we expect."

Rice said she was cutting short a European trip to visit India later this week.

In Mumbai, security forces declared the landmark 565-room Taj Mahal hotel cleared of booby traps and bodies. The hotel was the scene of the final battle Saturday morning.

"We were apprehensive about more bodies being found. But this is not likely — all rooms in the Taj have been opened and checked," said Maharashtra state government spokesman Bhushan Gagrani.

The army had already cleared other sites, including the five-star Oberoi hotel and the Mumbai headquarters of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish group. Israeli emergency workers sorted through the shattered glass and splintered furniture at the Jewish center Monday to gather the victims' body parts. At one point, one of the men opened a prayer book amid the rubble and stopped to pray.

The only gunman captured after the attacks said he belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group with links to the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, said Joint Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria. Maria added that the gunman, Ajmal Qasab, said he was trained at a camp in Pakistan.

Pakistani President Asif Zardari's spokesman, Farhatullah Babar, dismissed the claim, saying Islamabad has "demanded evidence of the complicity of any Pakistani group" but has received none.

Qasab was among 10 who paralyzed the city in the attack, which also wounded 239 people.

A Muslim graveyard in Mumbai said Monday it would not bury the dead gunmen, with an official saying they are not true followers of the Islamic faith.

"People who committed this heinous crime cannot be called Muslim," said Hanif Nalkhande, a trustee of the influential Jama Masjid Trust, which runs the 7.5-acre (three-hectare) Badakabrastan graveyard in downtown Mumbai. "Islam does not permit this sort of barbaric crime."

While some Muslim scholars disagreed with the decision — saying Islam requires a proper burial for every Muslim — the city's other Muslim graveyards are likely to go along because of the authority of the Jama Masjid trust.

Mumbai returned to normal Monday to some degree, with parents dropping their children off at school and many shopkeepers opened their doors for the first time since the attacks began.

"I think this is the first Monday I am glad to be coming to work," said Donica Trivedi, 23, an employee of a public relations agency.

The attack revealed the weakness of India's security apparatus. India's top law enforcement official resigned Sunday, bowing to growing criticism that the attackers appeared better trained, better coordinated and better armed than police.

Maharashtra's top official, Vilasrao Deshmukh, offered to resign Monday, as did his deputy, R.R. Patil, who had sparked outrage by referring to the attacks as "small incidents."

The announcement blaming militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba threatened to escalate tensions between India and Pakistan. However, Indian officials have been cautious about accusing Pakistan's government of complicity.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash denied a news report that India was preparing to end a 2003 cease-fire with Pakistan. An intelligence official, speaking on customary condition of anonymity, said there was no unusual mobilization of troops along the India-Pakistan border.

Pakistan has warned that any buildup of troops on its border with India would require troops to be pulled from its western frontier, where it is fighting militants suspected of launching attacks throughout the country and on American troops in Afghanistan.

The group the Indians have blamed, Lashkar, has long seen as a creation of the Pakistani intelligence service to help fight India in disputed Kashmir. It was banned in Pakistan in 2002 under pressure from the U.S., a year after Washington and Britain listed it a terrorist group. It is since believed to have emerged under another name, Jamaat-ud-Dawa, though that group has denied links to the Mumbai attack.

As more details of the response to the attack emerged, a picture formed of woefully unprepared security forces.

"These guys could do it next week again in Mumbai and our responses would be exactly the same," said Ajai Sahni, head of the New Delhi-based Institute for Conflict Management and who has close ties to India's police and intelligence.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh promised to strengthen maritime and air security and look into creating a new federal investigative agency.

Singh promised to expand the commando force and set up new bases for it around the country. He called a rare meeting of leaders from the country's main political parties, hours after the resignation of Home Minister Shivraj Patil.

The death toll of 172 was revised down from 195 Sunday after authorities said some bodies were counted twice.

Among the 19 foreigners killed were six Americans. The dead also included Germans, Canadians, Israelis and nationals from Britain, Italy, Mexico, Japan, China, Thailand, Australia, Singapore and Mexico.

Associated Press reporters Ravi Nessman, Paul Peachey, Anita Chang and Ramola Talwar Badam contributed to this report from Mumbai, Ashok Sharma contributed from New Delhi and Asif Shahzad from Islamabad, Pakistan.

EYANG NAZIM(SYAIKH NAZIM ADIL AL_HAQQANI)

Pada September 2010 lalu, perhatian masyarakat dunia tertuju pada 33 penambang di Chili yang terkubur di kedalaman lebih dari 700 meter di bawah permukaan bumi. Namun akhirnya satu demi satu penambang berhasil diselamatkan dengan menggunakan kapsul ‘Phoenix’.
Kejadian itu berawal sejak tanggal 5 Agustus 2010 dan akhirnya dapat diselamatkan pada tanggal 14 Oktober 2010. Baru kali ini publik melihat 33 orang mampu bertahan hidup dalam kegelapan di bawah tanah selama lebih dari dua bulan, setelah jalur keluar-masuk tempat mereka bekerja tertimbun bebatuan. Determinasi dan daya juang para pekerja untuk tetap bertahan hidup menunggu pertolongan, diliput langsung oleh lebih dari dua ribu jurnalis dari mancanegara, langsung dari area pertambangan San Jose, di padang gurun Atacama. Pemimpin penambang Luis Urzua menjadi penambang terakhir yang diangkat dengan selamat. Proses evakuasi memakan waktu hingga 22 jam 37 menit.
Bahkan Aktor kondang Brad Pitt sangat terkesan dengan kisah 33 penambang Chili yang berhasil selamat setelah terkubur hidup-hidup selama 69 hari di dalam perut bumi. Pitt pun berniat untuk mengangkat kisah mereka menjadi sebuah film nyata di tahun depan.
Namun tahukah publik dunia…dibalik kejadian itu ada keterlibatan Invisible hand yang sangat berperan di dalamnya. Allah berkehendak lain, Dia mengirimkan Aulia-aulia pilihannya untuk membuka mata dunia tentang sebuah spiritualitas sejati. Kisah nyata inilah yang dialami oleh 33 penambang itu. Di kedalaman perut bumi, ditengah keputus asaan mereka tentang upaya penyelamatan manusia modern, tiba-tiba saja muncul ditengah-tengah mereka seorang Aulia Allah zaman ini. Seorang Sultan Aulia, mursyid sejati thoriqoh Naqshabandi Haqqani dari sanad mata rantai emas ke 40, Maulana Syaikh Muhammad Nazim Adil Haqqani yang datang menghibur hati mereka. Syaikh Nazim memberikan siraman ruhani dan akhirnya di kedalaman perut bumi itu mereka ber syahadat dan serta merta ber bay’at di tangan beliau. Selanjutnya ke 33 orang penambang itu diberikan sebuah kalung tawuz, azimmah yang digantungkan di leher mereka masing-masing. Sampai akhirnya mereka terselamatkan oleh tim relawan, tawuz/azimmah itu tetap melekat di leher mereka.
Kenyataannya selanjutnya, stasiun tivi dunia yang dikuasai oleh sebagian besar Yahudi dan Nasrani yang ikut meliput peristiwa bersejarah itu menutup-nutupi peran spiritual ini. Sampai pada akhirnya dunia dibuat takjub ketika para penambang itu mengakui bahwa hanya kekuatan Ilahillah mereka terselamatkan dari bencana ini. Para penambang itu tidak mengunjungi Dalai Lama, Paus Paulus atau orang suci lainnya, tapi mereka mengunjungi seorang tua renta di pulau terpencil yang jauh dari keramaian kota besar. Mereka bersimpuh di kaki syaikh Nazim. ke 33 penambang itu mengutus 2 orang temannya untuk berkunjung, menemui sultanul Aulia Syaikh Muhammad Nazim Adil Haqqani di pulau kecil Ciprus (Turki) untuk mengucapkan terimakasih atas peran spiritual beliau ketika berada di dalam perut bumi itu. Mereka disambut hangat oleh syaikh nazim di kediamannya lefke Ciprus dalam beberapa hari dan akhirnya terjadillah dialog antara beliau dengan para penambang dan 2 stasiun TV swasta FOX TV…..
TULISAN INI TERBAGI MENJADI DUA SESI. SESI PERTAMA ADALAH PERISTIWA PERCAKAPAN KETIKA 2 PENAMBANG ASAL CHILI YANG SELAMAT AKHIRNYA BERKUNJUNG KE KEDIAMAN SYAIKH NAZIM DI PULAU CIPRUS TURKI DAN SESI KEDUA ADALAH WAWANCARA SYAIKH NAZIM DENGAN STASIUN TV SWASTA “FOX TV”…..YANG PENGEN MENGETAHUI KEJADIAN SEBENARNYA DARI PERISTIWA BESAR TAHUN 2010 INI
KETIKA ITU Maulana Syaikh Nazim menyambut dengan hangat dua penambang Chili – Brother Omar Raygaldo, pemimpin dari kelompok penambang yang terperangkap didalam lubang berkedalaman 700 m, dan kawannya Dario.  “Duduklah,” kata Maulana sambil tertawa, saat menyambut mereka dengan penuh cinta.
* Maulana memulai percakapan dengan memuji Nama Allah, dan berterima kasih kepada-Nya untuk keajaiban yang indah ini. Para penambang telah bertahan selama 70 hari, terkubur 700 meter di bawah bumi, tanpa udara segar, dan hanya minum air tercemar untuk bertahan hidup. Dengan nyaris tanpa makanan, dengan udara yang menyesakkan gerah dan panas, didalam lubang yang gelap gulita dan udara yang mencekik, semua 33 penambang berhasil keluar hidup-hidup, masing-masing muncul dengan memakai kalung tradisional Naqsybandi tawiz segitiga di leher mereka, karena sebelumnya Maulana telah mengirim kepada 33 buah Tawiz ini ketika mereka masih terjebak didalam tanah.
Maulana berdoa bahwa setiap orang yang melihat akan mengakui keberadaan Spiritualitas dan mukjizat Allah, setelah menyaksikan acara ini yang telah diliput luas oleh semua media dunia,
* Maulana mengungkapkan bahwa ia telah diberitahu tentang kecelakaan ditambang itu dan kejadian yang mengerikan yang menimpa penambang dimnalam hari. Mawlana segera berdoa untuk mereka, dan dia mengirim salah satu Wali utamanya sebagai salah satu dari 313 Wali Besar (313 Rijallallah) di seluruh dunia, dan memintanya untuk menemani para penambang. Akhirnya, tidak hanya satu Rijallallah yang datang, tetapi ada tujuh dari makhluk tak kasat mata dikirim ke lokasi tambang itu. Maulana menyuruh salah satu dari Rijalallah untuk menginformasikan agar para penambang membaca La ila ha illallah, Muhammadur Rasulullah, dan meminta mereka untuk memakai Naqshbandi Taweez, agar dapat dengan cepat diselamatkan. Inilah pesan penting dan hadiah tawiz kepada mereka di Chile yang bertugas untuk mengirimkan makanan kepada para penambang yang terjebak.
* Alhamdulillah, kata Maulana, pertolongan Allah telah mencapai para penambang, dan membuat penyelamatan mereka tampaknya tidak mungkin, menjadi mungkin. Semua teknologi di bumi tidak akan bisa menyelamatkan tanpa bantuan  Ilahi itu. Bantuan telah mencapai penambang dari tempat tak terduga, melalui tujuh makhluk gaib yang telah dikirimkan kepada mereka.
Ketika kita membaca Ringkasan dari apa yang para penambang ungkapkan, Anda akan melihat begitu banyak mukjizat yang sulit diterima logika manusia. Dan hanya untuk menggambarkan bahwa bertahan hidup seperti suatu cobaan bukan hanya tentang memiliki teknologi
Pada tgl 19 November terjadi  ledakan di sebuah tambang batubara Selandia Baru 29 penambang terperangkap, dan tidak ada yang berhasil keluar hidup-hidup, bahkan tubuh mereka belum ditemukan, meskipun teknologi yang lebih mutakhir tersedia bagi mereka. Jadi ke 33 penambang yang berhasil  keluar hidup-hidup dan sehat dan utuh memang merupakan sebuah keajaiban. Keajaiban ini merupakan sebuah rekor dimana mereka terjebak dibawah bumi untuk waktu cukup  lama,dan dapat bertahan hidup.
* Tujuh mahluk gaib yang tak terlihat di antara para penambang ditunjukkan tanggal yang siksaan mereka akan berakhir, sebagaimana tercantum pada lauh Mahfudz, dan mereka terus memberikan dukungan yang diperlukan untuk kelangsungan hidup ke 33 penambang ini, secara bertahap, sampai tanggal tersebut yang telah ditentukan mereka berhasil keluar dengan selamat. Meskipun penambang melihat banyak kejadian ajaib, Maulana mengatakan bahwa ‘Keajaiban kecil’ telah ditampilkan, karena manusia saat ini memiliki keyakinan yang sangat rendah dalam Spiritualitas, dan mereka tidak akan mampu menanggung mukjizat yang benar-benar besar.
Hanya yang diperlukan untuk dapat bertahan hidup, yang diberikan kepada para penambang. Bahkan saat itu, dunia menjadi saksi bagaimana, atas kehendak Allah, 33 orang selamat dalam kondisi yang sebenarnya dapat merenggut nyawa merekai semua dalam sehari, di bawah kondisi  yang normal. Namun mereka dapat bertahan 17 hari awalnya, tanpa udara segar dan air minum yang bersih dan tanpa makanan yang cukup  dan mereka menghabiskan total 70 hari berada dibawah tanah dan muncul dalam keadaan hidup!
* Maulana mengatakan bahwa ia sangat senang bertemu dua penambang yang datang dari Chili ini. Tanpa bantuan Spiritual dan dukungan dari mahluk yang saleh dan tulus yang dikirim untuk membantu mereka, maka mereka tidak akan pernah bisa berhasil keluar hidup-hidup. Bagi Allah tidak ada yang mustahil, dan doa orang-orang saleh adalah merupakan perantarai (waseelah) sehingga kejadian ini dapat terjadi!
* Dengan mereka (para penambang datang ke sini) maka itu adalah sebuah pembukaan bagi rakyat Chile, dimana banyak dari mereka akan memeluk Islam dan mendalami Spiritualitas setelah ini. Sementara Amerika Utara mereka dikuasai kehidupan yang materialis. Amerika Selatan akan berkembang menjadi sebuah negara yang sangat spiritual. Maulana berdoa bagi mereka, untuk mencapai era Imam Mahdi (as) dan Sayyidina Isa (as), dan insyaallah, pada saat itu, banyak penduduk di Chili akan masuk Islam.
* Maulana memberi mereka masing-masing hadiah sebesar USD $ 500, dan memberi mereka USD tambahan $ 15.500 untuk diberikan kepadai 31 penambang lainnya yang tidak datang dan masih di Chile. Maulana mengatakan bahwa ia berharap untuk memberikan kontribusi kepada mereka setiap bulan, sehingga dapat membantu mereka untuk bekerja yang lain, karena ia tidak ingin mereka kembali bekerja di tambang itu lagi. Dia berharap akan memberikan biaya bulanan bagi mereka untuk membantu mereka memulai beberapa usaha kecil yang dapat mereka tekuni. Dia minta salah satu dari dua penambang itu bahwa ia harus mulai pemeliharaan kambing, dan Maulana akan mengirimkan uang untuk memulai peternakan kambing, dimulai dari 5.00 sampai 1.000 kambing, dan dalam satu tahun, dia akan memiliki 10.000 kambing.
Seorang penambang kemudian mengungkapkan bahwa ia memang telah menjadi petani kambing di masa mudanya! Maulana menyarankan penambang lain untuk memulai usaha kecil, membeli dan menjual kayu dari Argentina. Maulana meyakinkan mereka bahwa ia akan terus mengumpulkan amal untuk mereka, dan bahwa ia tidak akan pernah meninggalkan mereka, ia akan membantu mereka sebanyak mungkin, karena mereka seperti anak-anaknya sendiri di matanya.
* Para penambang memberikan Maulana beberapa hadiah simbolis – sebuah Bendera Chili dengan tanda tangan semua 33 penambang ‘, tanda tangan itu dibuat saat mereka masih terjebak didalam tambang, sebuah bordiran melambangakan bendera Chili, kota Lapaz yang dibuat oleh keluarga mereka pada hari penyelamatan mereka sebagai hadiah bagi Mawlana dan sepotong batu dari atacamita dari tambang San Jose, yang merupakan batu  emas dan tembaga. Mereka berkata kepada Maulana, “Ini hadiah untuk Anda bukan apa-apa dibandingkan dengan semua yang telah Anda lakukan untuk kita, kita tidak pernah bisa membalas kebaikan Anda atas bantuan Anda kepada kami, “Maulana yang rendah hati menjawab, “Pahala kami dikirmkan dari langit, kita adalah hamba yang lemah, semoga Anda bahagia di dunia dan akhirat”.
* Pada akhir pertemuan itu, Maulana menyebut mereka sebagai para  ‘singa’ untuk keberanian mereka dalam  menghadapi seperti siksaan menakutkan didalam tambang. Mawlana mengirim salam untuk semua para penambang, dan menyuruh mereka untuk menggunakanl hatinya, karena seratus ribu penduduk Chili suatu saat akan pergi ke Damaskus dengan perahunya Maulana. Mawlana mengingatkan mereka untuk mencari pekerjaan yang lain yang sederhana, dan jangan  pernah kembali bekerja ditambang lagi, karena, jika mereka terjebak sekali lagi, Maulana berkata, “Kali ini, kami tidak bertanggung jawab.” Maulana berjanji untuk mengirim uang bagi mereka untuk membangun sebuah dergah (tempat dzikir) di Chile juga. Salah satu wanita Chili yang telah menemani para penambang, memohon doa terakhir. “Anak saya hilang dilaut di bulan Mei tahun ini, apakah akau akan melihatnya lagi? ” katanya dengan wajah yang sedih. Maulana berkata, “Ia akan datang, ketika Sayyidina Isa (as) datang, jangan khawatir, “Mawlana menghibur ibu yang berduka. Dia kemudian memberikan Bay’at dan memeluk dua penambang itu.
* Segera setelah pertemuan Maulana, tim TV berbicara kepada dua penambang, meminta mereka mengungkapkan bagaimana perasaan mereka tentang pertemuan dengan Maulana Syaikh Nazim, dan apa yang mereka alami ketika mereka mengambil Bay’at dengan dia. Brother Omar mengatakan bahwa selama Bay’at, dia merasa seolah-olah ia mabuk, dan setelah Bay’at, ia merasa seolah-olah suatu beban besar telah terangkat dari dadanya. Penambang lainnya mengalami sensasi yang sama. Meskipun ia sebelumnya mengalami kesulitan tidur setelah penderitaannya tersekap didalam, ia kagum bahwa di Lefke di tempat Mawlana, ia tidur seperti bayi, sejak tiba di Lefke. Dia menemukan bahwa tinggal di Lefke sangat damai, dan sangat tersentuh oleh begitu banyak waktu mereka bisa bersama Maulana Syaikh Nazim mereka. Dia telah melihat begitu banyak murid menunggu, hanya untuk bisa menghabiskan beberapa menit dengan Maulana, namun mereka diberi kesempatan ulang untuk berrama Maulana, makan malam dengan dia, dan bahkan bepergian dengan dia di mobil dua kali. Ia berterima kasih atas nasihat bijak Maulana yang telah memberinya uang dan ia ingin berbagi dengan keluarganya, terutama untuk meninggalkan sektor pertambangan, untuk mencari rezeki di tempat lain.
* Ketika ditanya bagaimana ia memandang kecelakaan itu sekarang, dia mengatakan bahwa itu tes dan berkah bagi mereka, membawa mereka kembali ke realitas, itu menunjukkan mereka arti hidup dan membawa mereka ke dalam Islam dan kepada Maulana. Dario, penambang lain, bersyukur telah datang, karena baginya ini merupakan perjalanan yang tidak direncanakan, ia menggantikan kedua penambang lainnya, yang telah membatalkan untuk datang ke Lefke, dimenit terakhir!    Al-Fatihah
Maulana’s Meeting with Chilean Miners  19th December 2010
WAWANCARA KEDUA, oleh FOX TV tentang Penambang Chile yang Selamat dan Datang Menemuinya di Siprus PADA HARI Kamis, 23 Des 2010
Syaikh Nazim mengatakan kepada publik demikian “A’udzubillahi minasy syaithanir rajiim Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Rahiim. Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Saya menyaksikan siaran penyelamatan Penambang Chile malam terakhir di Discovery Channel. Dalam film Dokumenter itu mereka berusaha keras untuk menyingkirkan setiap peran Spiritual atau pesan Ilahi di balik insiden ini. Mereka menekankan tentang teknologi dan kecerdikan para insinyur karena mereka berhasil memecahkan masalah-masalah di lapangan dan kesulitan menerjang untuk menyelamatkan para penambang. Tak ada satu kata pun yang disebutkan tentang keajaiban apa yang ditemui oleh para penambang, apa yang mereka alami atau mereka lihat, bahkan adegan setiap penambang yang muncul dari kapsul dengan mengenakan ta’wiiz yang diberikan oleh Mawlana Syekh Nazim (q), dengan licik telah diedit oleh mereka, sehingga tidak satu frame gambar pun dari setiap penambang yang memakai sebuah ta’wiiz ditampilkan selama film Dokumenter yang panjang itu ditayangkan.
Mawlana menegaskan tentang hal ini dalam wawancara berikut ini, menjelaskan bahwa teknologi itu bukanlah alasan yang utama untuk kelangsungan hidup para penambang. Semua itu adalah Kehendak Sang Pencipta, dan setiap orang yang skeptis, mata mereka buta oleh kekuatan spiritual dan mereka harus mengakui bahwa banyak hal yang terjadi sepanjang seluruh kejadian ini yang, berada di luar pemahaman manusia.
Mawlana Syekh Nazim (q) memulai wawancara ini dengan melampiaskan kekecewaan bagaimana kru CNN sehari sebelumnya datang mewawancarai beliau dan memperlakukannya dengan kasar. Beliau mengatakan bahwa, jika stasiun TV ingin mewawancarai Kepala Dokter di Rumah Sakit tentang hal-hal medis, maka mereka paling tidak harus mengirimkan pewawancara yang memiliki beberapa pengetahuan Kedokteran, sehingga ia bisa mengajukan pertanyaan yang relevan dan akan mengetahui jargon medis. Dalam setiap bidang keahlian, yang mewawancarai harus  akrab dengan subjek dan terminologi orang yang diwawancarai.
Ambil contoh untuk operasi misalnya, atau tentang olahraga karate, fisika, nuklir, dan memasak ala Jepang – maka seorang pewawancara yang tidak memiliki pengetahuan sebelumnya dari bidang-bidang tertentu akan membuat bodoh dirinya sendiri, dan membiarkan pemirsa berubah menjadi kesal, ini persis apa yang dilakukan pewawancara dari CNN itu. Ia tidak mengetahui apa-apa tentang Spiritualitas dan agama, dan meminta informasi apapun bagi pemirsa untuk  belajar.
Mawlana berkata, bahkan jika seseorang tidak tahu apa-apa tentang topik tersebut, setidaknya, orang itu harus bersikap sopan dan hormat, bahkan dalam aspek ini, reporter CNN gagal total untuk melakukannya. Malulah ia pada dirinya.
Pewawancara FOX TV:
Mengapa para penambang Chile datang ke sini untuk bertemu  dengan Anda?
Mawlana Syekh Nazim (q):
Memang tidak mudah menjelaskan hal-hal rohani karena salah satu kebutuhan untuk memiliki iman atau untuk memahami hal-hal tersebut. Mungkin beberapa dari mereka telah melihat saya berada di dalam tambang itu, sementara yang lain mungkin  bermimpi bertemu dengan saya. Bahkan jika saya harus memberitahu Anda, bahwa saya memang telah berada di tambang sejak hari pertama kecelakaan itu terjadi, apakah Anda percaya? Apakah pendengar percaya pada saya? Ini adalah Kehendak Allah, jadi bagaimana bisa orang yang mengatakan, “Itu tidak mungkin!”  Orang-orang abad ke-21, mereka kebanyakan tidak beriman, mereka menolak  Spiritualitas, namun mereka tidak bisa menjelaskan bagaimana saya datang dan melakukan kontak dengan para penambang di bawah permukaan bumi. Dari sudut pandang filsafat material, tidak dapat dijelaskan atau dipahami.
Dunia memiliki mata yang terlatih untuk melihat bencana ini. Di mana-mana, orang melihat dan menunggu. Di sebuah lubang yang sempit sekitar 25 meter persegi, di sebuah lubang terpencil di perut bumi yang tidak layak untuk menunjang kehidupan manusia, mereka bertahan selama 70 hari. Bagaimana bisa?
Mereka tidak punya udara segar, dan tidak ada saluran untuk udara, namun mereka merasakan ada hembusan udara yang mencapai mereka, setiap kali mereka merasa bahwa mereka tercekik pernapasannya selalu ada hembusan udara segar. Bagaimana dan apa yang terjadi? Mereka seharusnya mati kelaparan dan kehausan? Mereka telah terkontaminasi air industri, air dan udara yang tidak layak bahkan untuk mencuci kulit mereka, untuk minum. Dan mereka minum selama 17 hari tanpa ada yang jatuh sakit. Mereka memiliki sedikit makanan, hanya dua sendok tuna setiap 24 jam, namun semua orang merasa disegarkan dan merasa kenyang dengan jumlah makanan yang sedikit. Bagaimana itu bisa terjadi, jika tidak ada Bantuan Ilahiah turun kepada mereka?
Para penambang itu menceritakan sebuah cerita, bahwa ada tiga pendaki gunung yang mendaki gunung, dan kemudian terperangkap di puncak gunung.Mereka kelaparan dan kehausan, mereka memakan mayat seorang pendaki untuk bertahan hidup. Ini adalah pendaki di medan terbuka, terjebak untuk waktu yang singkat, namun mereka melakukan tindakan seperti untuk bertahan hidup. Jadi bagaimana 33 orang kelaparan – pada satu titik dan hanya makan dua sendok makan ikan tuna setiap 72 jam? Mengapa mereka tidak merenungkan untuk saling membunuh untuk bertahan hidup, sementara mereka berada di sebuah ruang yang menyesakkan napas mereka dan tertutup selama 70 hari? Apa yang membuat mereka bahagia, merasa puas, kenyang dan damai? Apakah Teknologi? Saya pikir tidak.
Tanpa Bantuan sesuatu kekuatan yang tak terlihat yang telah Dia kirim, maka para penambang akan lama menyerang satu sama lain dan mereka akan makan satu sama lain dalam rasa lapar yang tak tertahankan oleh mereka, sampai bahkan tulang-tulang yang mati, tidak akan dapat kalian temukan!
Dalam panas ruang sempit yang mengerikan dan juga bau busuk, orang-orang itu dapat tidur nyenyak, dan kemudian mengatakan bahwa mereka bangun setiap hari, anehnya mereka penuh energi dan tetap bersemangat, segar dan termotivasi. Bagaimana hal itu bisa terjadi? Apakah Teknologi?
Para penambang telah mengalami begitu banyak kejadian aneh dan insiden yang tidak dapat mereka jelaskan. Namun, dunia ini penuh dengan orang-orang yang akan menutup mata, dan menyisihkan semua keajaiban sebagai kebetulan.
Orang-orang tidak memiliki iman dalam Spiritualitas, mereka tidak memiliki iman dengan Tuhan. Ini adalah Dia, Sang Maha Pencipta orang-orang ini, yang ingin mereka terus hidup, dan itu dengan kehendak dan IzinNya, bahwa mereka berhasil keluar dengan selamat. Inilah sebuah keajaiban, ini adalah pesan dari Tuhan, untuk semua Manusia, untuk membuat mereka percaya atau jika mareka tidak percaya Tuhan maka mereka termasuk orang-orang kafir. Siapapun yang menolak Spiritualitas, maka level mereka berada di bawah tingkat hewan.
Hari ini, Alhamdulillah, para penambang ini percaya Spiritualitas, mereka percaya pada Allah SWT. Mereka yang datang kepada saya, mereka datang karena mereka telah melihat saya berada di dalam tambang itu. Mereka melihat. Mereka ingin bertemu dengan Guru Spiritual yang telah menemani mereka melalui segala penderitaan mereka selama terjebak di dalam tambang, mereka ingin melihat Spiritual Power yang telah mereka lihat.
Tak satu pun dari penambang itu yang pergi ke Tibet (untuk memenuhi DalaiLama). Tidak ada juga yang pergi ke Paus. Tidak ada pergi ke pendeta Kristen atau Rabbi Yahudi. Atau ke pusat Spiritual lainnya untuk masalah ini. Mereka datang ke sini, ke pulau Siprus yang terpencil dan dilupakan banyak orang, di mana seorang pria tua yang lemah, dan tidak dikenal, tinggal. Hanya karena Keinginan-Nya, bahwa apa yang terjadi di tambang itu terjadi. Dan Dialah yang ingin mereka hidup, Dialah yang membiarkan mereka hidup! Orang bebas untuk menerima hal ini atau menolaknya. Allah telah mengirim mereka para penambang ini untuk ke sini kepada seseorang yang diberi kewenangan, yang diberi kekuatan Ilahi untuk pergi ke mana pun di muka bumi ini, menurut kehendak-Nya.
Orang tersebut diberi Kekuatan material dan Kekuatan Spiritual, ia bisa  menyelesaikan misi apapun. Mereka adalah sahabat Allah, orang-orang Suci, dan jika seseorang adalah orang suci, para Wali, seseorang yang memiliki koneksi dengan dunia Spiritual. Seperti seseorang diberkati dengan material dan kekuatan spiritual, maka dalam sekejap mata, ia bisa mencapai Chile, Australia, atau Kutub Selatan. Dengan Izin-Nya, seseorang hamba yang lemah dapat pergi ke mana saja, ia bahkan dapat berjalan di atas air seperti Sayyidina Isa (Yesus Kristus as).
Dewasa ini orang yang menolak-Nya, menolak Tuhannya sendiri yang menciptakan dia, orang seperti itu tidak pernah bisa mengerti apa-apa tentang hal-hal seperti itu! Orang-orang seperti berada di tingkat binatang, dan mereka selalu berpikir bahwa mereka adalah sesuatu. Orang-orang hari ini menolak gagasan bahwa mereka lemah. Jika memang Anda kuat, mengapa Anda harus mati, mengapa Anda tidak hidup selamanya?
Dengar! Mereka, semua penambang itu akan meninggal pada hari pertama, jika tidak ada dukungan surgawi bagi mereka. Ada keajaiban terjadi di sana. Para penambang itu dikirimkan Ta’wiiz oleh saya dan mereka diperintahkan untuk membaca La ilaha illallah, Muhammadur Rasulullah (kalimat syahadat) sehingga mereka bisa diselamatkan. Mereka mengambil salib mereka dan kemudian menggantungkan sebuah ta’wiiz Naqsybandi di leher mereka sebagai gantinya. Setiap penambang ke luar dari tambang, mengenakan Ta’wiiz itu!
Jadi pesan untuk manusia yang sinis hari ini, dan mereka yang skeptis – jika Anda tidak dapat menjelaskan suatu kejadian aneh, jangan hanya melihat kesamping. Berpikirlah tentang hal ini, itu yang dapat membuka mata Anda kepada sesuatu yang sangat istimewa. Hal ini sudah cukup dibuktikan bahwa dua dari para penambang ini datang dari negeri yang jauh, datang ke sini. Mereka telah memeluk Islam, dan mereka telah diberi nama Muslim saat ini.
Pewawancara FOX:
Kami mendengar ada kejadian serupa di Cina. Ada orang Turki dari Turkmenistan, yang selalu disiksa oleh pemerintah Cina. Setiap kali mereka disetrum maka tiba-tiba listrik padam di tempat itu, dan orang ini akan melihat Anda (Syekh Nazim). Kami mendengar ia datang ke sini untuk bertemu Anda juga setelah ia berhasil melarikan diri dari penjara Cina itu.
Mawlana:
Ya, dia datang ke sini dan dia masih di sini (di Zawiyah bawah). Anda mungkin dapat juga mewawancarainya jika itu yang Anda inginkan.
Pewawancara:
Jadi banyak yang datang menemui Anda, Syekh Nazim Effendi?
Mawlana:
Mereka yang bisa datang, akan datang. Dan bagi mereka yang tidak bisa datang (karena kemiskinan, kesehatan, atau dalam penganiayaan) maka saya yangakan menjangkau mereka di manapun mereka berada.
Pewawancara:
Ketika para penambang datang untuk mengunjungi Anda, apa yang mereka lakukan, apa yang terjadi?
Mawlana:
Mereka mencium tangan saya, mereka duduk di depan saya, dan mereka menangis. Dan saya berkata, “Ya Ghaaliban maghluub ghaira! Wahai Dia yang tidak bisa dikalahkan! Engkau telah mengirimkan dua penambang di sini, untuk mengajarkan seluruh dunia, tentang Spiritualitas dan keimanan serta takdir-MU,
“Wahai orang yang tak memilki iman, kalian harus datang untuk percaya.” Seluruh kejadian ini dirancang untuk menghancurkan orang-orang kafir dan ateis. Ketergantungan mereka pada dunia materialistik, dunia teknologi, untuk semua hal yang terjadi yang tidak dapat mereka jelaskan, kecuali dengan Spiritualitas.
Semua orang yang berdiri di atas ketidakpercayaan, tidak memiliki dasar dalam kehidupan, mereka adalah manusia yang bodoh. Ketika manusia dihadapkan dengan peristiwa ajaib seperti ini. Peristiwa di Chile ini untuk menunjukkan danmenghancurkan benteng pertahanan mereka yang kafir yang tidak memilki kepercayaan dan keimanan. Para penambang menjadi saksi hidup terhadap peristiwa bersejarah ini.
Aku tahu apa yang terjadi di tambang itu. Dalam keadaan biasa, tidak akan adayang selamat, bahkan untuk satu hari. Tetapi Kekuatan Spiritual mencapai mereka, dan membuat mereka hidup dalam tambang itu. Allah telah mengajarkan  seluruh dunia, sebuah pelajaran dalam iman, dalam keyakinan dalam hal yang gaib.
Pada akhir hikayat ini, para penambang di sini di Siprus. Mereka datang ke sini dan tidak datang kepada tokoh-tokoh lain yang terkenal seperti Paus, paraRabbi, para imam, atau Dalai Lama. Mereka berada di sini, di pulau kecil inijauh-jauh, untuk bertemu seorang lelaki tua yang lemah yang mereka tidak pernah mengenal sebelum kecelakaan itu terjadi. Mengapa? Pikirkan tentang hal ini. Bi hurmati Fatihah.

          Company With Ties To UFO Cover-up Gets Huge Antarctica Contract - Why All The Defense Contractors And Mercenaries?    
http://www.stillnessinthestorm.com

http://www.auroraexpeditions.com.au/images/uploads/expeditions/expeditions-antarctica-new-year.jpg

(Stefan Stanford) According to this interesting new story from the Herald Review, studies that were completed upon sedimentary rock in Antarctica have given us undeniable and conclusive evidence that palm trees once grew there in that land long covered by ice as also heard in the 1st video below. As the author of the Herald story asks, how is that possible when nothing other than primitive vegetation grows there today? As we hear in the 3rd and final video below featuring Clif High of the Web Bot project, the data that he mines every day tells him that something very, very strange is going on in Antarctica, and each day he's getting more and more indications that something huge is ramping up down there.
 Source - All News Pipeline

by Stefan Stanford, June 20th, 2017

Sharing with us evidence he's gotten through his internet word-monitoring project that, beyond many visits made by the elite to Antarctica, including Newt Gingrich himself in February of 2017 as seen in the Twitter screenshot below, he also sees a big ramping up of jobs in Antarctica including highly elite globalist corporations, (one with long ties to the UFO coverup!), and the numbers of military passes there indicate to him a major operation is being prepared for.


Between large tracts of land in Australia and New Zealand being dedicated to something new and still mysterious, he also tells us of the creations of new cargo routes from the areas closest to the land of ice, where it is now winter. High tells us he expects we may see something huge during the Antarctic spring while telling us one of the biggest indicators of what might be happening there now are the huge number of high tech companies becoming involved. He also tells us that whatever it is, the American people may never hear anything about it with the companies now involved.


According to the Professional Overseas Contractors website, a new company called LEIDOS recently took over the massive Antarctic support contract formerly held by deep-state, military-industrial-complex tied Lockheed Martin. Their story interestingly mentions that nowhere on LEIDOS company history page did they mention their parent company, a mega-giant for the 'deep state' called SAIC, the Scientific Applications International Company.


And as High tells us in this video, SAIC has deep ties to the secrecy surrounding UFO's, history that can be traced by those willing to investigate it including a slew of CEO's from the military-industrial-complex including retired US Navy Admiral and CIA Deputy Director Bobby Ray Inman, who's held several influential positions within the intelligence community, including time at SAIC, and who has long been believed to be one of the 'UFO Gatekeepers'.

Interestingly we also learn that the reason SAIC created LEIDOS was that they were unable to bid on certain government contracts as SAIC, but as LEIDOS they were able to bid upon them. Add in the fact that Lockheed Martin's Antarctica contract was supposed to run through 2025 but was 'conveniently' cut short, with LEIDOS taking over, and all kinds of questions arise that need to be answered with the starter: What is REALLY going on down there?


According to Steve Quayle's book "Empire Beneath The Ice", the truth about history has been hidden. In 'Empire Beneath' Quayle persuasively argues that most of what we have learned about World War II and the defeat of Nazi Germany is wrong, and the truth is something not only sinister but are at the root of some of the biggest secrets of our age.

Interestingly, Quayle's book aligns greatly with much that we're hearing from Clif High now via his Web Bot project and High tells us he believes that what's happening down there might somehow be UFO/alien related. He also claims that with most jobs in the Antarctic being seasonal and short term, there's a mathematical certainty that more and more information will be leaking out about what's really going on down there that he'll be able to data mine through his project.

Might Steve Quayle's book have been way ahead of the truth? These main points of his book are shared with us.:
Why the suppressed evidence proves Adolf Hitler didn’t die before Germany surrendered during WWII, and how he eluded capture.

How Nazi SS members, scientists, and soldiers escaped with Hitler to create colonies in other parts of the world to continue their monstrous research.

Why in 1947 Admiral Richard E. Byrd warned that the US should adopt measures to protect against an invasion by hi-tech aircraft coming from the polar regions, adding, “The time has ended when we were able to take refuge in our isolation and rely on the certainty that the distances, the oceans, and the poles were a guarantee of safety.”

How, using advanced technology, Nazi saucers defeated the US military — long after WWII was supposedly over.

Why the US space program was mostly a sham, and why the “UFOs” that started appearing around the world in the late 1940s were (and still are) most likely flown by Nazi pilots.

How key government, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, financial leaders, and institutions helped Hitler come into power, and facilitated the preservation of Nazi wealth and power after WWII.

Why today’s world is secretly controlled by a malevolent shadow government and entire populations are being surreptitiously brainwashed.

How ancient stargates have been duplicated to open portals into spiritual and demonic universes.

Why those controlling our planet have laid the groundwork for a takeover by a dictator who could best be described as the Antichrist of the Bible. Empire Beneath the Icecarefully documents these and many more astounding facts, divulging the truth about what is happening today. It gives you the insights to help prevent this diabolical takeover or, if it occurs, reveals the details and essential actions you and your loved ones must take. Empire Beneath the Ice exposes the dangers our world faces, and will arm you with the tools you need to counter these unspeakable, secret evils.




While High makes sure to reaffirm that we still don't know exactly what's going on down there, he claims that based on the few clues we do have that things are definitely ramping up. The fact that LEIDOS/SAIC refocused a core science group on Antarctica, which did part of their past work in 'reverse engineering', tells him that, while we're now living in very exciting times, a major inflection point is ahead. As he continues, with the old system dying and a new one being born, there are great opportunities along with great risks.


In the 2nd video below our videographer talks with us about the massive military build-up going on down in the Antarctic region including many defense contractors and mercenaries. Also discussed in the eye-opening final video below featuring Clif High are Bitcoin and other digital currencies and the potential for financial unrest ahead. The conversation turns towards Antarctica at the 24 minute mark. For those new to the Web Bot project, Cliff High's cutting edge technology is a set of algorithms used to process variations in the language that can offer insight into the mood of the collective unconscious through “predictive linguistics.”

          Cardinal George Pell: I'm Innocent - Catholic 3rd Most Senior Priest Denies Sex Abuse Charge

Cardinal George Pell, the Vatican treasurer accused of sex offences in his native Australia has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, descrbing the charge against him as "character assassination", BBC News reports.

The cleric also said the claims against him are "false".

According to BBC News, Pell said the Pope had granted him a leave of absence to fight the charges.

The charges relate to alleged "historical" incidents, police in the state of Victoria said.

The allegations were made by a number of people, said Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton.

Cardinal Pell, 76, who is based in the Vatican, is considered the third-ranking official in the Holy See.


He told a news conference at the Holy See: "I'm looking forward finally to having my day in court.

"I am innocent of these charges, they are false. The whole idea of sexual abuse is abhorrent to me."

The Catholic Church worldwide has in recent years faced a damaging series of allegations relating to sex abuse by priests, and claims that these cases were covered up.

The BBC's James Reynolds says the charges leave the Church - and the Pope - in an uncomfortable position.

After his election in 2013, Pope Francis created a commission to deal with allegations of sexual abuse by clerics. Now he finds that one of his closest advisers faces charges of his own.

The Vatican's child abuse response
What are the charges?

Victoria Police said they had made the decision to charge Cardinal Pell after receiving advice from prosecutors last month.

"Cardinal Pell is facing multiple charges and there are multiple complainants," Deputy Commissioner Patton said.

Details of the allegations were not revealed.

Deputy Commissioner Patton said police "process and procedures" had been no different from any other investigation.

"Cardinal Pell has been treated the same as anyone else in this investigation," he said.

The charges were served on Cardinal Pell's legal representatives in Melbourne on Thursday.

The cardinal would be required to face the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on 18 July, Deputy Commissioner Patton said.

A magistrate will decide next week whether to release the details and the nature of the charges ahead of the cardinal's court appearance.

          McLaren Automotive bate récords en 2016 con 3.286 coches vendidos   

McLaren Automotive bate récords en 2016 con 3.286 coches vendidos

Por cuarto año consecutivo, el fabricante británico McLaren Automotive ha batido su propio récord de ventas, con 3.286 deportivos comercializados y un importante crecimiento en todos y cada uno de sus mercados. Esta cifra supone un incremento sustancial del 99% con respecto a 2015, periodo en el que las ventas ascendieron a 1.654 vehículos. Buenas noticias para McLaren, desde luego.

Este importante aumento de las ventas ha supuesto también un repunte del 70% en los beneficios de la compañía, que ha cerrado el año fiscal con 9,2 millones de libras (10,5 millones de euros) antes de impuestos, frente a los 5,4 millones del año pasado y tras unos ingresos totales de 649,8 millones de libras (casi 740 millones de euros). Pero... ¿a qué se debe semejante mejora?

"El positivo resultado financiero en 2016 se debe a un 44% de incremento en los ingresos por ventas y es prueba de que los planes de crecimiento de McLaren Automotive son alcanzables y sostenibles", afirma el CEO de la firma inglesa, Mike Flewitt, quien también ha adelantado que para finales el año 2020 habrán producido 15 nuevos modelos o versiones de sus actuales superdeportivos.

McLaren Automotive bate récords en 2016 con 3.286 coches vendidos

La familia Sports Series es en gran parte la artífice del éxito de McLaren, con 2.031 coches vendidos, gracias a los nuevos McLaren 570GT y 570S, lanzados al mercado muy recientemente, aunque también han gozado de gran acogida el McLaren 675LT (familia Super Series) y su variante descapotable, que colgaron el cartel de "todo vendido" muy poco después de su lanzamiento. En total, en 2016 se han vendido 1.255 vehículos de la familia Sports Series.

Los buenos resultados de McLaren no tienen pinta de frenarse, ya que la introducción del McLaren 720S a principios de este año 2017 (la segunda generación de McLaren Super Series) ya parece estar teniendo gran éxito, con al menos 1.500 pedidos hasta la fecha. De hecho, el centro de producción de McLaren (MPC) ha añadido un segundo turno de trabajo en enero para poder satisfacer la demanda de la familia Sports Series, creando 250 empleos y elevando la producción de 10 a 20 coches diarios, para una producción anual del orden de 5.000 vehículos.

Crecimiento por mercados

Todos los mercados donde McLaren Automotive está presente han 'sufrido' un importante crecimiento. El norteamericano es el mercado más grande para la firma inglesa, con 1.139 unidades vendidas y un 106% de crecimiento con respecto a 2015. Europa mantiene la segunda plaza con 996 coches y un incremento del 153%, que se dice pronto.

McLaren Automotive bate récords en 2016 con 3.286 coches vendidos

Por su parte, en China se han comercializado 228 coches en total, la región Asia-Pacífico ha crecido un 90% y Oriente Medio, África, Centroamérica y Sudamérica ha crecido un 69%. Durante 2016 McLaren ha abierto cinco nuevos concesionarios en Bristol (Reino Unido), Boston y Palm Beach (Estados Unidos), Gold Coast (Australia) y Fukuoka (Japón).

Are steel cap boots allowed on airplanes nowadays? I'm flying internationally from Australia tomorrow and just realized the boots I wear everywhere have steel toes. Should I wear thongs or sandals on the plane and pack the boots (I'd prefer not to, as it's winter here and since the boots will count a lot in my weight allowance)?

If it's just a matter of removing the boots at the security gate and taking a little more time at checkin, no worries, but if they might possibly be confiscated that's an entirely different matter.

And yes, on the other end I want to have them with me, for work safety reasons.

A group of Australian farmers have joined the large coalition of groups fighting against Adani’s giant Carmichael coalmine, after they became concerned about the affects the mine would have on groundwater, biodiversity, rural communities and climate change.

Farmers for Climate Action – a group of more than 2,000 farmers and agriculture leaders concerned about climate change – became the newest group to join the Stop Adani alliance last week, at the same time as one of its members attracted more than 30,000 signatures to a petition calling on the Queensland premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, to rescind her commitment to give Adani unlimited free access to groundwater used by farmers in the region.
