          Storbluffande hobbyspelare tog hem förstaplatsen i Prag   

51-årige iranfödde Hossein Ensan från Tyskland tog sig till sitt tredje finalbord i EPT på bara sex månader. Den här gången gick det hela vägen mot en förstaplacering.

– Det jag vill säga är att pokern är till för alla människor. Jag är också ung, sa han efter sin seger, till PokerStars blogg.

Ensan nådde finalbordet i European Poker Tours stopp i Barcelona men slogs ut på tredje plats, och i EPT Malta blev han sexa. Inom pokerkretsarna är han mest känd för sina bluffar.

I Prag hamnade han i en heads-up med WCOOP-vinnaren Gleb Tremzin från Ryssland. När spelet inleddes hade de nästan lika många chips och innan de påbörjade sitt spel kom de överens om en deal. Enligt överenskommelsen skulle herrarna spela om 724 510 euro respektive 30 000 euro.

En ren bluff

Kampen mellan Tremzin och Ensan pågick i flera timmar, och det såg ut att vara över när Tremzin tog hem en stor pott. På brädan med 8 2 4 A K check-synade Ensan hela vägen till rivern. Där lade han plötsligt ut ett bet på 1,3 miljoner.

Tremzin träffade bara ett par här med T 8 men kunde ha foldat. Uppenbarligen trodde han att det rörde sig om en bluff och gick därmed all-in. Ensan slängde iväg handen han satt på och visade en ren bluff med 9 7.

Tremzin hade plötsligt en 3:1-chiplead men förlorade ledningen snabbt när Ensan kom ikapp. Han fick A A och limpade in från knappen. Tremzin bettade med en miljon i marker med Q J.

Floppen gav Tremzin ett par med Q 7 7, men på turn 9 bettade han en miljon igen. Ensan synade.

Tremzin bettade igen med 4 på rivern och Ensan gick hastigt all-in. När Tremzin synade var spelet över.

Nedan kan du se en fullständig lista över utbetalningarna och placeringarna från finalbordet i Prag: 

1. Hossein Ensan (Tyskland) €754,510 *
2. Gleb Tremzin (Ryssland) €724,510 *
3. Ilkin Amirov (Azerbaijan) €391,910
4. Thomas Butzhammer (Tyskland) €294,180
5. Slaven Popov (Bulgarien) €226,330
6. Olivier Ferrero (Frankrike) €166,080

          Azerbaijan Should Free Abducted Journalist    

Afgan Mukhtarli.

© Meydan TV

A month ago, Azerbaijani journalist and political activist Afgan Mukhtarli vanished from the center of Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, a few blocks from his family’s apartment. Mukhtarli had been living in exile – several hundred kilometers from Azerbaijan – since 2015. That evening he had met a friend, picked up some bread on the way home, and called his wife, who is also a journalist. He never made it home.

Less than 24 hours later, he resurfaced in Azerbaijani border police custody, facing fabricated charges of illegal border crossing, smuggling, and violently resisting authorities. An Azerbaijani court promptly returned him to custody for three months, pending investigation.

Mukhtarli, his wife, Leyla Mustafayeva, and their 3-year-old daughter, moved to Georgia to escape Azerbaijan’s vicious crackdown against critics of the government. Mukhtarli’s reporting exposed corruption in Azerbaijan’s defense ministry. He also reported on the extensive business networks owned by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and his affiliates in neighboring Georgia. Such reporting doesn’t go unpunished in Azerbaijan.

While in Azerbaijani custody, Mukhtarli told his lawyer that unidentified men, some wearing Georgian police uniforms and speaking Georgian, stopped him near his house, put a bag over his head, pushed him into a car, and beat him while they drove away. Mukhtarli also said his captors changed vehicles twice, and that the assailants in the second vehicle spoke Azeri and brought him to an Azerbaijani border checkpoint, where someone planted and “discovered” €10,000 on him. This became basis for the smuggling charges.

Although Georgian authorities promptly launched an investigation into the abduction, they have made little progress. The Tbilisi City Court refused to recognize Mukhtarli as a crime victim, which would allow closer scrutiny of the investigation. High-level officials deny the Georgian government’s involvement in the incident, but the lack of detailed findings after a month of investigation make these assurances ring hollow.

On June 15, the European Parliament adopted an urgent resolution strongly condemning Mukhtarli’s prosecution in Azerbaijan, calling for his release, and urging Georgia to investigate and “bring the perpetrators to justice.” The European Court of Human Rights is also reviewing Mukhtarli’s case as a priority and has already communicated questions to the authorities.

The governments of Azerbaijan and Georgia share responsibility for Mukhtarli’s fate. Azerbaijan should immediately release him and allow his reunification with his family in Georgia. And Georgia should ensure a prompt and credible investigation, and appropriately prosecute all those responsible, regardless of nationality or official position.

          Vettel could face more sanctions    
Ferrari’s Formula One championship leader Sebastian Vettel risks further sanctions after the governing body re-examines his ‘road rage’ clash with Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton in Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix. The governing International Automobile Federation (FIA) said yesterday that it would take another look at the evidence on Monday. “The FIA will further examine the causes of the incident in order to evaluate whether further action is necessary,” it announced. The outcome of that process will be made public before the Austrian GP weekend of July 7-9. Race stewards imposed a 10 second stop and go penalty on Vettel after he hit the back of race leader Hamilton’s car and then angrily pulled alongside and banged wheels while both were behind the safety car. They ruled, after an examination of the video evidence, that Vettel had steered into Hamilton in a “potentially dangerous” manoeuvre. Some commentators felt the German had got off lightly, with Vettel ultimately finishing fourth and extending his overall lead to 14 points. Hamilton, who had led comfortably from pole position, finished fifth after having to pit when his headrest material came loose. “For him to pretty much...

          From toxic prisons to sand's scarcity, good reads for the holiday weekend   

As we head into the holiday weekend it occurs to me to offer for your attention some of the better long reads I’ve enjoyed lately on environmental topics.

So here are four standouts on subjects ranging from environmental health hazards in U.S. prisons to the looming world shortage of sand, from the biodiversity in your gut to how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency gave Monsanto a pass on studying probable links between Roundup and cancer in mice. All were freely available Wednesday and should be still.

* * *

At the crossroads of mass incarceration and environmental injustice — the practice of burdening poorer and/or nonwhite communities with a disproportionate share of pollution — sits much of America’s prison system, whose population has grown more than sevenfold since the 1970s.

Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that prison administrators sometimes turn a blind eye to environmental conditions in and around their facilities. But the findings of a new investigation by Earth Island Journal and Truthout suggest that the health-threatening exposures are neither occasional nor unusual.

In Toxic Prisons, writers Candice Bernd, Zoe Loftus-Farren and Maureen Nandini Mitra report that “at least 589 federal and state prisons are located within three miles of a Superfund cleanup site on the National Priorities List, with 134 of those prisons located within just one mile.”

Many were simply built in a hurry on sites nobody else wanted, like the medium-security prison in Pennsylvania whose proximity to a massive coal-ash dump has tainted inmates’ air and water with heavy metals and other toxins.

In Texas, arsenic contamination prompted a federal court order directing a prison to provide inmates with safe drinking water. And at prisons across California, the soil-borne fungal disease known as valley fever has been a chronic problem:

In the past decade, more than 3,500 California prisoners have become sick from valley fever and more than 50 have died from it. Though infection rates decreased significantly after 2011, to fewer than 100 cases each in 2014 and 2015, last year saw another spike with 267 prisoners infected.

In 2011, a particularly bad year, infection rates for the highest risk California state prisons were dozens of times above those in nearby communities, according to Centers for Disease Control data. Although the fungus is poorly understood, researchers suspect that out-of-town prisoners bused to the Central Valley are especially susceptible because they are not native to the region. Locals may develop some kind of immunity that shields them from the worst valley fever symptoms.

California now offers to test prisoners for immunity and to transfer vulnerable inmates to lower-risk facilities. Like most official responses noted in the article, this one was ordered by the courts. Much less has happened to safeguard the population of the SCI Fayette prison at LaBelle, Pennsylvania:

The 237-acre men’s prison began operating in 2003 on one corner of what, in the 1940s through the 1970s, was one of the largest coal preparation plants in the world, where coal from nearby mines was washed and graded. The “cleaned” coal was then shipped off to power plants and other markets, while the remaining coal refuse was dumped on and around the hilly, 1,357-acre site. By the mid-1990s, when its owners filed for bankruptcy and abandoned the site, an estimated 40 million tons of coal refuse had been dumped there. At some places the waste piled up some 150 feet.

An inmate survey conducted by a Pittsburgh prisoner advocacy group called the Abolitionist Law Center ask about their health problems and found that:

Eighty-one percent of the 75 prisoners who responded … claimed to suffer from respiratory, throat, and sinus conditions; 68 percent experienced gastrointestinal problems; 52 percent reported adverse skin conditions; and 12 percent said they were diagnosed with a thyroid disorder. The report also noted 11 of the 17 prisoners who died at SCI Fayette between 2010 and 2013 had died of cancer.

Contacted by the reporters for comment, prison officials said the facility meets OSHA-type safety standards, without providing data to back that up.

David Owen’s gift for juxtaposing the odd little detail with the stunningly large issue, while maintaining tone of bemused fascination, are on ample display in his New Yorker piece, “The World Is Running Out of Sand.”

He begins with the logistically massive if socially trivial effort to obtain appropriate sand for internationally regulated beach-volleyball competitions, for which ordinary beach sand is rarely sufficient (too large and variable in grain size).

An event in Toronto last year required 1,360 tons of sand to be delivered in 35 semitrailer loads. But at least it came from a few hours away. Sand for the first European Games, held in Azerbaijan two years ago, was brought by sea from southern Turkey because moving it by road would have meant crossing potential combat zones in Syria and Iraq.

Elsewhere in the world, sand is moved much greater distances at much greater cost for the construction of nearly everything that uses concrete or asphalt and, with increasing frequency, to rebuild storm-ravaged coastlines and levees.

Sand covers so much of the earth’s surface that shipping it across borders—even uncontested ones—seems extreme. But sand isn’t just sand, it turns out. In the industrial world, it’s “aggregate,” a category that includes gravel, crushed stone, and various recycled materials. Natural aggregate is the world’s second most heavily exploited natural resource, after water, and for many uses the right kind is scarce or inaccessible. In 2014, the United Nations Environment Programme published a report titled “Sand, Rarer Than One Thinks,” which concluded that the mining of sand and gravel “greatly exceeds natural renewal rates” and that “the amount being mined is increasing exponentially, mainly as a result of rapid economic growth in Asia.”

Pascal Peduzzi, a Swiss scientist and the director of one of the U.N.’s environmental groups, told the BBC last May that China’s swift development had consumed more sand in the previous four years than the United States used in the past century. In India, commercially useful sand is now so scarce that markets for it are dominated by “sand mafias” — criminal enterprises that sell material taken illegally from rivers and other sources, sometimes killing to safeguard their deposits. In the United States, the fastest-growing uses include the fortification of shorelines eroded by rising sea levels and more and more powerful ocean storms — efforts that, like many attempts to address environmental challenges, create environmental challenges of their own.

Aggregate is the main constituent of concrete (eighty per cent) and asphalt (ninety-four per cent), and it’s also the primary base material that concrete and asphalt are placed on during the building of roads, buildings, parking lots, runways, and many other structures. A report published in 2004 by the American Geological Institute said that a typical American house requires more than a hundred tons of sand, gravel, and crushed stone for the foundation, basement, garage, and driveway, and more than two hundred tons if you include its share of the street that runs in front of it. A mile-long section of a single lane of an American interstate highway requires thirty-eight thousand tons. The most dramatic global increase in aggregate consumption is occurring in parts of the world where people who build roads are trying to keep pace with people who buy cars. Chinese officials have said that by 2030 they hope to have completed a hundred and sixty-five thousand miles of roads — a national network nearly three and a half times as long as the American interstate system.

Windowpanes, wineglasses, and cell-phone screens are made from melted sand. Sand is used for filtration in water-treatment facilities, septic systems, and swimming pools. Oil and gas drillers inject large quantities of hard, round sand into fracked rock formations in order to hold the cracks open, like shoving a foot in the door. Railroad locomotives drop angular sand onto the rails in front of their wheels as they brake, to improve traction. Australia and India are major exporters of garnet sand, which is crushed to make an abrasive material used in sandblasting and by water-jet cutters. Foundries use sand to form the molds for iron bolts, manhole covers, engine blocks, and other cast-metal objects. I once visited a foundry in Arizona whose products included parts for airplanes, cruise missiles, and artificial hip joints, and I watched a worker pouring molten stainless steel into a mold that had been made by repeatedly dipping a wax pattern into a ceramic slurry and then into sand. The work area was so hot that I nervously checked my arm, because I thought my shirt was on fire. Factories that produce plate glass — by pouring thin layers of molten silica onto baths of molten tin — can be hotter.

Moving from global geology to the body’s internal flora, I commend Kyle Frischkorn’s tour of the microbiome in the human gut, “You Are What You Eat, And What You Eat Is Millions of Microbes,” published in Smithsonian magazine.

“Poop is nothing short of a scientific miracle,” he begins, then makes his case with a quick survey of all we’ve learned by studying fresh human samples of same. I highlight that right away because this particular article might not be the one you save to read over lunch.

Much of it deals with Rob Knight, founder of the American Gut Project, which in the last five years has enlisted 9,000 volunteers to send cash and/or fecal samples to a research team which has now used DNA analysis to “create the first census of the 40 trillion or so bacteria that call our guts their home.”

The origins of those bacteria are well understood — we’re ingesting them all day long via food and all the other things we put into our mouths, not always with full awareness. What interests the researchers is understanding what drives an amazing diversity in gut microbiomes from one belly to the next.

For the study, volunteers had self-reported their diets, with the vast majority following omnivorous diets, and less than 3 percent each identifying as "vegetarian" or "vegan." When researchers crunched the numbers, however, they found no discernible correlations between gut communities and those with seemingly similar diets. 

In other words, the bacteria in poop were telling a different dietary story than the people making that poop. “You can be a vegan who mostly eats kale, or you can be a vegan who mostly eats fries,” Knight explains. “Those have totally different consequences for your microbiome.” Anyone can claim to be a die-hard adherent to the Paleo Diet, it seems, but the data suggested that the microbiome remembers all those midnight ice cream transgressions.

Every time you ingest, you change the interior landscape of you. Because the bulk of bacteria in the microbiome live in the gut, when we feed ourselves, we feed them too. The chemistry of what we eat, be it fries or kale, alters the chemical landscape of the gut, making it more cozy for some and less hospitable for others. 

It gets livelier. Because microbes are everywhere — on the table, in the air, on the surface of the muffin you left out on the counter — you’re also adding new microbes to the mix. Some stroll through your body like polite tourists. Others stick around and interact with the locals. Every bite has the potential to alter the microbiome, and subsequently human health. But researchers have yet to figure out how.

Ultimately the goal is to develop scientific understanding that will help people plan the best diets to fight disease and promote higher levels of health. In the meantime, it’s an exercise in pure science that is fundamentally redefining how we think of food and bacteria:

It’s not that all food has some bacteria on it, it’s that bacteria themselves are intrinsically and unavoidably a major component of food, inseparable from proteins and vitamins, micronutrients and fat.

For all those who still believe the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency engages in needless regulatory nitpicking and anti-business obstructionism, please have a look at Carey Gillam’s article for Environmental Health News, “Of mice, Monsanto and a mysterious tumor.”

Over the next year or so, U.S. courts will begin to wade through heaps of lawsuits challenging Monsanto Co.’s position that glyphosate, aka Roundup, poses no human health risk if used correctly.

Which is important, considering the glyphosate’s No. 1 ranking for decades now among herbicides favored by farmers, public land managers and residential applicators. Also, considering that glyphosate routinely turns up in food and in human urine samples.

Gillam’s is a history piece and its focus is on research conducted in 1983 that proved inconvenient for Monsanto, and became the focus of a concerted effort by the company and like-minded EPA regulators to minimize its significance:

The two-year study ran from 1980-1982 and involved 400 mice divided into groups of 50 males and 50 females that were administered three different doses of the weed killer or received no glyphosate at all for observation as a control group. The study was conducted for Monsanto to submit to regulators. But unfortunately for Monsanto, some mice exposed to glyphosate developed tumors at statistically significant rates, with no tumors at all in non-dosed mice.

A February 1984 memo from Environmental Protection Agency toxicologist William Dykstra stated the findings definitively: “Review of the mouse oncogenicity study indicates that glyphosate is oncogenic, producing renal tubule adenomas, a rare tumor, in a dose-related manner.” Researchers found these increased incidences of the kidney tumors in mice exposed to glyphosate worrisome because while adenomas are generally benign, they have the potential to become malignant, and even in noncancerous stages they have the potential to be harmful to other organs. Monsanto discounted the findings, arguing that the tumors were “unrelated to treatment” and showing false positives, and the company provided additional data to try to convince the EPA to discount the tumors.

But EPA toxicology experts were unconvinced. EPA statistician and toxicology branch member Herbert Lacayo authored a February 1985 memo outlining disagreement with Monsanto’s position. A “prudent person would reject the Monsanto assumption that Glyphosate dosing has no effect on kidney tumor production,” Lacayo wrote. ”Glyphosate is suspect. Monsanto’s argument is unacceptable.”

Eight members of the EPA’s toxicology branch, including Lacayo and Dykstra, were worried enough by the kidney tumors in mice that they signed a consensus review of glyphosate in March 1985 stating they were classifying glyphosate as a Category C oncogen, a substance “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

Monsanto then found scientists willing to re-examine the results and conclude, essentially, that the tumors occurred for reasons other than glyphosate exposure. The company also resisted EPA’s call for a repeat of the mouse study, and the regulators’ enthusiasm for the fight began to fade.

The discussions between Monsanto and the EPA dragged on until the two sides met in November 1988 to discuss the agency’s request for a second mouse study and Monsanto’s reluctance to do so. Members of the EPA’s toxicology branch continued to express doubts about the validity of Monsanto’s data, but by June of 1989, EPA officials conceded, stating that they would drop the requirement for a repeated mouse study.

By the time an EPA review committee met on June 26, 1991, to again discuss and evaluate glyphosate research, the mouse study was so discounted that the group decided that there was a “lack of convincing carcinogenicity evidence” in relevant animal studies. The group concluded that the herbicide should be classified far more lightly than the initial 1985 classification or even the 1986 classification proposed by the advisory panel. This time, the EPA scientists dubbed the herbicide a Group E chemical, a classification that meant “evidence of non-carcinogenicity for humans.”


          Edenia: a lost Yiddish utopia for Ukraine and its afterlife in modern-day Kharkiv   

Kalman Zingman’s 1918 Yiddish-language novella In Edenia, a City of the Future imagines a new world of tolerance and culture in eastern Ukraine. Now the region is war-torn and the Jewish population decimated. A new exhibition in Kharkiv — the site of Zingman’s utopia — aims to bring his vision to bear on a divided modern nation

Edenia: a lost Yiddish utopia for Ukraine and its afterlife in modern-day Kharkiv

A design by Jewish avant-garde artist El Lissitsky from his 1922 version of the Yiddish folk tale Four Billy Goats

At one point in Kalman Zingman’s 1918 Yiddish novella In Edenia, a City of the Future, the protagonist Zalman Kindishman stands admiring a monument on the titular city’s Freedom Square:

A young girl with an ardent glance, her hair in loose curls, stepping with her feet on a snake, which is completely wrapped around her. In one hand she holds a blood-red flag and in the other — a black one. On the bottom of the red side is a bas-relief depicting high barricades, flattened faces — a war is going on. There is also a bas-relief on the other side, under the black flag, of the victims after the war, of those who were shot: a Russian, a Ukrainian, a Pole, a Jew, a Georgian, et cetera — all dead. The inscription reads: “They fought together, they died together.”

Edenia is a utopian future version of Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine, projected forward from the 1910s into the 40s. Now there’s another war going on nearby, this time between Russia and Ukraine; that, and the sickening disjunction between Zingman’s Yiddish fantasia and what actually befell the region’s Jews in the Second World War, might seem to discredit the author’s vision of cooperation and reconciliation.

For Russian-American artist Yevgeniy Fiks and American-Ukrainian curator Larissa Babij, however, the peculiar world of Zingman’s Edenia is worth remembering. Together, they have created a new exhibition named after his novella, currently on display in Kharkiv’s Yermilov Centre. In the novella, Kindishman visits Edenia’s art museum; Fiks and Babij have invited an international group of artists — the participants include Babi Badalov (Azerbaijan), Ruth Jenrbekova and Maria Vilkovisky (Kazakhstan), Aikaterini Gegisian (Greece/Armenia), Haim Sokol (Russia/Israel) and Nikita Kadan (Ukraine) — to contribute artworks towards a reconstruction of this imaginary space. In the process, they are posing many of the same questions of multiculturalism and futurism that occupied Zingman almost a century ago. What might a better future for Ukraine look like? And what position might religious and ethnic minorities hold within it?

“Utopian or futuristic Yiddish literature is not common,” Fiks tells me. “Most often Yiddish literature either talks about the present or remembers the past.” In Zingman’s text, Zalman Kindishman comes to Edenia to visit his old friend Yugendboym. Here, there is no money — every citizen has their material needs provided for. National communities — Jews, Ukrainians and others — live in complete harmony and are free to set their own laws. There are flying “aerotrains”, an artificially regulated climate, abundant gardens with children celebrating Jewish holidays by their thousands. Edenia is not a Jewish-only city, but one where questions of anti-Semitism have been superseded. 

Zingman’s vision of a peaceful existence for Ukraine’s Jews clashes horribly with the country’s history. The post-revolutionary, short-lived Ukrainian People’s Republic (1917-1921) was the first modern state to have a Ministry for Jewish Affairs, and Yiddish was made a state language. But pogroms continued unabated, and between 1918, when Zingman’s book was written, and 1920, at least 31,000 Jews were killed in Ukraine — the real number may be as high as 100,000. The great majority died at the hands of nationalists and anti-Communists, many of whom saw Bolshevism as a sinister Semitic plot. Even greater horrors were to come in the Second World War, when the country was occupied by the Nazis and Ukrainian collaborators. An estimated one million Jews were murdered in Ukraine during the Holocaust; 70 per cent of the country’s Jewish population was killed or displaced.

“Personally, I feel that the Yiddish question is precisely the question that should be raised when we talk about the present and future relationship between Ukraine and Russia,” Fiks says. “Perhaps the silence of Yiddish in the streets of both Ukraine and Russia, if acknowledged and contemplated, cries the need, the hope for a better world, a word of multiculturalism and autonomy.” For Babij, this is a question of both national and personal significance. “While working on this exhibition I could not help but notice how the site of multi-ethnic or inter-national coexistence has shifted to the scale of the individual,” she says. Hence the exhibition acts “not only as a reminder of Ukraine’s rich multicultural landscape of the past, but also as an attempt to present and enact a more complex understanding of cultural identity.”

What might a better future for Ukraine look like? And what position might religious and ethnic minorities hold within it?

The question of Ukraine’s past and its impact on the future is a live one; in Fiks’s words, the country is reinventing itself “with forces of multiculturalism on the one side and extreme nationalism on the other in a state of constant flux.” In its attempts to wrench itself free from Russian influence and plant its feet firmly in the western European community, post-Maidan Ukraine has not always trod delicately: from the controversial programme of “decommunisation” to the nationalist historical retrofitting promoted by Volodymyr Viatrovych’s Institute of National Memory and the uncritical public lionisation of wartime figures like nationalist militia leader Stepan Bandera. The reappraisal of Zingman’s novella and an attention to Ukraine’s historical hybridity is timely, even if, as Babij admits, the Kharkiv exhibition represents a “relatively small, bounded space”.

One of the most intriguing aspects of Zingman’s work is its combination of futuristic technologies with a lingering, “old world” devotion to eastern European Yiddish cultural tradition. Edenia is dotted with memorials exalting Jewish artists and writers: Yitskhok Peretz, Roza Fayngold, Sholem Aleichem, El Lissitsky. Its citizens are avid readers to the extent that the literary scholar Professor Shvartsvald is treated like a rock star, his lectures on Peretz overflowing onto the street.

For Babij, Zingman “maintains a separation between the realms of everyday activity, where technological advancements have increased the comfort and ease of residents’ lives, and the sphere of culture. It’s interesting to contrast this vision with that of the early Soviet avant-garde, which envisioned art and its formal possibilities as a means to transform out-dated ways of living, to shape and prepare society for new forms of organisation, often through a violent break with and obliteration of past cultural traditions.”

The exhibition itself jumps across time and space, its contributing artists turning their hands to themes of migration, religion and repression. Curandi Katz embroiders textiles with the borders of territories unrecognised by international law — including Russia-annexed Crimea, an open wound in the Ukrainian national psyche. Ruth Jenrbekova and Maria Vilkovisky have created a video guide to their own utopian projection: a world in which the Central Asian states have formed into a federation of autonomous tribes. Perhaps the most pointed commentary on the erasure and resurfacing of history is provided by Nikita Kadan’s Viewers (2016). The great Constructivist designer Alexander Rodchenko produced a series of portraits of Soviet leaders in Uzbekistan in 1934; when these figures were repressed a few years later, Rodchenko blacked out their faces in his copy of the album. Kadan reproduces these disfigured portraits, labelling them “the faces of the spirits of history… History (in other words, the accumulation of ruins) happens under their watchful gaze.”

Zingman’s novella ends abruptly with Zalman Kindishman’s mysterious disappearance and death. The Jewish culture Zingman so cherished was brutally cut down a few decades later. Many Ukrainians are now no clearer as to the future they are headed towards than their predecessors of the early twentieth century. What place does utopian thinking occupy in the modern nation state? “I think the term utopia, especially after the events of the twentieth century, is loaded and politicised,” Fiks concludes. “I think hoping and seeking happiness is a very basic, very human thing. But we must be very wary and very conscious about our methods.” For Babij, Ukraine today is “carried away by visions of a better future, whether in the shape of an idealised image of the European Union or the soothing promises of a strong, authoritarian neighbouring ruler or the hope that current Ukrainian politicians will miraculously change the way this country has been run for the past 25 years.” Hence the importance of history: “the past is really the only thing we can look at and talk about concretely.”

Edenia is governed by two sects. The Heavenly Ones “renounce all earthly pleasures, all the enjoyments that life can bring. They maintain that there is an even higher world, a more beautiful one.” The second sect are the “Earthly Ones, who say: enrich and improve life, so that heaven can be on earth.” This practical, materialist message is what is picked up and translated for modern Ukraine in Fiks’s and Babij’s exhibition. Our best bet might be to follow the advice given by Yitskhok Peretz, one of the Yiddish writers celebrated in Edenia, in one of his poems: “Don’t think the world is a wasteland — created/For wolves and for foxes, for spoils and for booty… Oh, don’t think the world is a wasteland.”

In Edenia, a City of the Future is on display at the Yermilov Centre in Kharkiv until 9 July.

          Participants in Summer English Programs at MIIS Have Ambitious Plans   
Teaser

Forty students from 16 countries are at the Middlebury Institute this summer to improve their English language skills through a program designed to help them achieve ambitious personal, professional, or academic goals.

As the downtown Monterey campus of the Middlebury Institute fills with summer students eagerly conversing in one of the five foreign languages offered through the Summer Intensive Language Program (SILP), they are joined by an equally ambitious group of students here to master their English through the Institute’s Intensive English Programs (ESL). This summer we welcomed a total of 40 students from 16 countries who are participating in two programs, Intensive English and English Preparation for Graduate Studies.

The 29 students in the eight-week Intensive English Program range widely in age and background and hail from Azerbaijan and Guatemala, Vietnam and Spain, Qatar and Brazil, among other countries. They all have specific personal, professional, or academic goals related to improving their English language competency. For example, eight students are part of the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP), who are working on their English skills to prepare for a semester of study in one of the STEM fields in the United States.

Eleven students from six countries are enrolled in the English Preparation for Graduate Studies. The program is designed to introduce students to the academic culture of the United States and the Institute, while offering them the opportunity to improve their skills in English, especially in research, writing, and presentations. Many of these students will stay in Monterey and matriculate into one of the Institute’s graduate programs in the fall.

Washington discovers the Trans-Caspian Trade and Transit Corridor. @ElinSuleymanov https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/features/2017/6/f1-video-best-onboard-azerbaijan-baku-gp.html ______________ The Trans-Caspian East-West Trade and Transit Corridor brings together the Central Asia, Caspian and Black Sea strategic regions to form a viable trade and transit corridor between Europe and East & South-East Asia. Connecting trade, people and economies, the modern trans-Caspian corridor has extensive and integrated network of infrastructure, special economic zones, harmonized customs, cross-border procedures and more along this route. The United States played an important role in the development of this corridor and its cooperation with our countries has evolved into resilient strategic partnerships. Joint initiatives and projects such as the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline and Southern Gas Corridor have greatly contributed to the increased business between the region and the United States. Moreover, currently underway regional infrastructure projects such as С5+1 Transport Corridor Development, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway and the multiple Port developments valued over $50 billion have been providing additional business opportunities including increased trade, investments and development of strategic infrastructure for facilitating commercially viable transit that the United States and its companies can benefit from. Today, ambitious regional infrastructure projects will ensure swift and efficient shipments of all types of goods. These projects will connect Asian and European transport networks, significantly shorten delivery time and save transportation costs for delivering goods from Asian to European markets. Expanding regional transport grids along the Trans-Caspian corridor opens new opportunities for transcontinental shipments, and innovative services. Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Turkmenistan form a market of around 150 million consumers. These countries are willing to offer customized and integrated solutions to companies with highly sophisticated supply chains. Project Description: Forum is a practical manifestation of joint willingness of the Trans-Caspian countries to make this corridor a viable option for East-West trade and transit shipments. Regional governments will introduce infrastructure, business, investment, trade and transit opportunities to business leaders, policy-makers and expert community across a variety of multinational industries. The Forum presents a suitable platform for public and private senior executives from regional countries and businesses. The diplomatic missions of Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Turkmenistan will hold the “2nd Trans-Caspian East-West Trade and Transit Corridor” forum in Washington D.C on June 26-27, 2017. The Forum initiated in partnership with Central Asia and Caucasus Institute under American Foreign Policy Council will take place at the George Washington University followed up by a policy discussion at the US Congress and round-table at the World Bank. June 26, the first day of the Forum co-hosted by Central Asia Program at the George Washington University and Caspian Policy Center will be open to wider public including academic, think tank, policy, business community, government officials and policy-makers from six organizing countries along with the United States. Caspian Policy Center also provides informational and analytical support to the Forum. On June 27, the morning session will be held at the United States Congress and will be open to public, specifically to Congress staff along with academic, think tank, policy, business community, government offi...

          The Natural Gas is an Ancient Discovery   

The first discoveries of natural gas seeps were made in Iran between 6000 and 2000 bc. Many early writers described the natural petroleum seeps in the Middle East, especially in the Baku region of what is now Azerbaijan. The gas seeps, probably first ignited by lightning, provided the fuel for the “eternal fires” of the fire-worshiping religion of the ancient Persians.

However still the Natural gas is believed to have been first discovered and used by the Chinese, perhaps as early as 1000 B.C. Shallow stores of natural gas were released from just beneath the ground and piped short distances to be used as a fuel source. Natural gas provided a continuous source of energy for flames. These "eternal fires" were found in temples and also used as attractions for visitors.

Around 2300 years ago, when no one in Europe or the Middle East could melt even one ounce of iron the Chinese were casting multi-ton iron objects. It was not until the mid-1700's in Europe that such feats of metallurgy were achieved in Britain, the technically most advanced country of Europe. The early success in iron-casting in China was due to a superior form of bellows that delivered a continuous stream of air to a furnace instead of an interrupted stream as from the type of bellows used in the West. No one beforehand would have given much thought or attention to such a seemingly unimportant device as the Chinese bellows, but it turned out to be a crucial technological development.

In the search for salt wells the ancient Chinese developed a technology of driving bamboo poles deep into the earth. Depths up to a kilometer were achieved through this technique. In addition to brine this drilling also often tapped into reservoirs of natural gas. This natural gas was captured in barrels and used as fuel to evaporate the water from brine to produce salt.

The use of natural gas was mentioned in China about 900 bc. It was in China in 211 bc that the first known well was drilled for natural gas to reported depths of 150 metres (500 feet). The Chinese drilled their wells with bamboo poles and primitive percussion bits for the express purpose of searching for gas in Late Triassic limestones (more than 208,000,000 years old) in an anticline west of modern Chungking. The gas was burned to dry the rock salt found interbedded in the limestone. Eventually wells were drilled to depths approaching 1,000 metres, and more than 1,100 wells had been drilled into the anticline by 1900.

Natural gas was unknown in Europe until its discovery in England in 1659, and even then it did not come into wide use. Instead, gas obtained from carbonized coal (known as town gas) became the primary fuel for illuminating streets and houses throughout much of Europe from 1790 on.

One of the earliest attempts to harness it for economic use occurred in 1824 in Fredonia, New York and led to the formation of the first natural gas company in the United States, the Fredonia Gas Light Company, in 1859. Toward the latter part of the nineteenth century large industrial cities began to use natural gas. Pipelines were constructed to conduct the gas to these areas. Steady growth in the use of gas marked the early and mid-twentieth century. However, it was the shortages of crude oil in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that forced major industrial nations to seek energy alternatives. Since those events, gas has become a central fossil fuel energy source

I swear F1 has turned into a bunch of cowards. Senna regarded the best yet rammed a fellow driver at full speed. Vettel shunted Hamilton at a speed my granny drives . Yet Vettel is some sort of pig. Let's get real here Stan's, Senna could have killed, Seb gave a nudge. Damage to cars,...nothing, nout. Hamilton should remember that his overrated hero nearly whacked a guy. Hamilton should also rem his meltdown with Massa when that broad dumped him.

          Comment on 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix team radio transcript | F1 Fanatic Round-up by Ben   
The problem with Baku @fran is the last sector is very quick. F1 cars can go much,much quicker than the safety car. Watch the footage back and you'll see even after the second Vettel contact the safetycar is still only just going through the final corner. This means Hamilton really had to slow the pace down to ensure he didn't catch the safety car on the restart. I think he'd have liked to keep more pace if possible but the safety car can't just disappear.
          Comment on 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix team radio transcript | F1 Fanatic Round-up by Ben   
Explain how it would be any better if he did that on the straight then <a href='http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/members/sylversurferr/'>@sylversurferr</a> slowing down very slightly on the corner exit doesn't mean Hamiltons done anything wrong. Even after the Vettel contact the safety car is still to make the final corner. Hamilton needed to slow down to let the safety car get away. Where he does this is up to him. As long as he doesn't slow too much (which he didn't) he's free to control the pace. Vettel got it wrong and accelerated into the corner. It was his mistake. You'll see the data next week when hopefully Vettel gets a few race ban too.
          Pickled Garlicky Green Bean Salad   

Here’s one appetizer that will leave your palate intrigued and happy. Pickled Garlicky Green Bean Salad. Perfect for summer and super easy to make. I served it at my Azerbaijani supper club recently and it was a hit. To make it, green beans are first cooked, then tossed with garlic and fresh herbs, drizzled with vinegar, and left aside for some time to soak up all the good flavors. This dish is made with Romano beans, which are broader than the more common French green beans (haricots verts). They’re also fleshier and have flat pods with beans inside that are loaded with distinct flavor. Choose fresh and tender beans for the best results. If Romano beans are not available to you, use French green beans. Pickled Garlicky Green Bean Salad

          Eggplant and Mushroom Baked Saffron Rice (Tahcheen)   

Bright, vivid colors, a skillful use of aromatic spices, irresistible flavors coming from varied ingredient concoctions, and an eye-pleasing presentation with fresh herbs, dried rose petals, pistachios, almonds, or barberries scattered atop savory and sweet dishes. I love these things about Persian dishes. It is a beautiful cuisine. I find a lot of elements of it in my native Azerbaijani cooking. One of my favorite Persian dishes happens to be tahcheen (or tahchin), an upside down baked rice. Typically, tahcheen is  made with pieces of poached chicken sandwiched in-between layers of par-boiled rice, which is bound with plain yogurt and egg yolks, and perfumed with saffron. Once baked, the dish is inverted upside down onto a serving platter to reveal a crusty, golden bottom. In the recipe here, there is

          Mariah Carey Whistling During Concert -- It’s Not Exactly What You Think    

 photo mariahwhistle.png

A short clip of Mariah Carey whistling instead of singing during a recent concert has gone viral. But, a longer clip surfaces and it’s singing a different tune. Catch up inside…

Mariah Carey was tapped to perform on Baku City Circuit’s main stage to close out the Azerbaijan Formula 1 racing event on Sunday (June 25th).

As usual, concertgoers had their phones out recording her performance and one clip went viral. In the viral video, it shows Mimi on stage set to perform “I Know What You Want” featuring Busta Rhymes and she’s whistling in the microphone as the track plays in the background.

Check it:

It didn’t take social media users long to start sharing the clip and bashing the Grammy Award winner for her lackadaisical performance. But, a longer clip proves the exact opposite. Apparently, she was just whistling to the tune before delivering her vocals.

Peep the longer clip below:

Well, there you have it. Mimi didn't forget the words, nor was she trolling her fans.

By the way, Mimi will kick off her Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace‎ again on July 8th.

A day before the concert...

Mariah brought her son Moroccan Cannon to meet racecar drivers Daniel Ricciardo of Australia and Max Verstappen of Netherlands before the Azerbaijan Formula One Grand Prix kicked off.

Fun times.

 

In other Mariah news...

The Elusive Chanteuse singer had a classic response when she was asked about her ex-billionaire fiancé James Packer’s whereabouts. Apparently, he’s wanted for questioning by the Israeli police (since March 2017) for an investigation about his close relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, corruption and illegal gift giving.

During an interview with Israel's Channel 2 News station in Tel Aviv, she hilariously said:

"I don't know where the motherf--ker is! [laughs]. How am I supposed to know?. I have no idea. I really have no idea about the political stuff. I don't pay attention to it."

Ha! Peep the clip above.

          Comment on I am enough: Iveta Mukuchyan drops music videos for “Amena” and “Hayastan Jan” by Ron   
@LiGhts - Armenia was around since 4th century BC. Before you go around falsifying history, you should look up the Armenian kingdom of the first century and all their achievements. Georgia and its predecessor, the Iberian empire has been around since 1-2nd centuries, Azerbaijan on the other hand was created in 1918 based on various Caucasian tribes who moved to that region 12-14 centuries.
          Comment on I am enough: Iveta Mukuchyan drops music videos for “Amena” and “Hayastan Jan” by LiGhts   
These three caucasian regions (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia) were formed in 1918. But that doesn't mean that they did not exist before, they existed before but different names, then you know history another tribe comes and invades, rules some time, but then again the region becomes an independent country. Both nations hate each other that's true, but this hatred is too much to claim that one nation didn't have tradations. And I'm not taking any one's side. If I wanted I could, as I'm an Azerbaijani. I really think that before everything we're humans, we don't have to insult each other.

          Open Government Partnership Cites Restrictions on Independent Groups   

(London) – The Steering Committee of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) – a voluntary initiative promoting government transparency and accountability – decided on June 28, 2017 to extend Azerbaijan’s “inactive” status in the initiative for another year. Publish What You Pay (PWYP), ARTICLE 19, CIVICUS, and Human Rights Watch said the decision was a positive step and an indication of the OGP’s strong commitment to protecting civic space as an essential part of promoting open government.

The OGP Steering Committee declared Azerbaijan’s membership inactive on May 4, 2016. It was the first time the committee had made a member country inactive.

The OGP Steering Committee acknowledged that the Azerbaijani government had made limited progress in reducing some of the regulatory impediments preventing civil society organizations from operating freely. But the committee again highlighted the serious problems in the authorities’ treatment of civil society and called on the government of Azerbaijan to undertake meaningful and substantive reforms to regain full membership. The decision gives Azerbaijan 12 months to work with the OGP Steering Committee and its Support Unit, local civil society, and external partners to address fundamental legislative and practical obstacles to civil society organizations’ participation generally and influence in Azerbaijan’s OGP Action Plan.

For years, Azerbaijan has systematically dismantled the country’s once vibrant civil society through the arrests and convictions of many activists, human rights defenders, and journalists on bogus politically motivated charges. As well as by adopting laws and regulations restricting the activities of independent groups and their ability to secure independent funding.

Some of the restrictions the government imposes are noted in the OGP Steering Committee decision. For example, government regulations require groups to register grants, and authorities have discretion to arbitrarily deny grant registration. The regulations also require a positive assessment from the Finance Ministry for each grant from a foreign donor, and require foreign donors to get permission from the government to make a grant. The government has frozen bank accounts of several human rights groups.

In addition, the authorities pursue politically motivated criminal prosecutions against activists. In recent weeks Azerbaijani authorities have also blocked websites of some media outlets critical of the government, including Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Voice of America, and Meydan Tv.

“We believe open government cannot be achieved without an active citizenry that is free to associate and has access to publicly available government data and information, the four organizations said. The OGP Steering Committee decision gives Azerbaijan a chance to renew its commitment to the principles of open and accountable government. Until and unless that happens, the OGP and the international community should continue to pressure Azerbaijan to release prisoners arrested on politically motivated charges, end the systematic harassment of government critics, and ensure that laws regulating civil society are brought in line with international standards.”

The OGP Steering Committee decision to declare Azerbaijan inactive followed a process set in motion by a policy the OGP adopted in 2014 to deal with concerns about restrictions on civic space in participating countries. Together with CIVICUS, and Article 19, PWYP decided to invoke the policy and submitted the first letter of concern in March 2015 to call out the Azerbaijani government’s crackdown on civil society, which started with the adoption of restrictive legislation regulating nongovernmental organizations and their funding.

The 2016 decision reflected the OGP Steering Committee’s recognition that government restrictions had seriously hampered Azerbaijani civil society from effectively promoting government transparency and accountability.

The 2016 decision gave the Azerbaijani government one year to implement reforms to restore an enabling environment for civil society. During that year, it received continuous support from the OGP Steering Committee and Support Unit but was excluded from high level meetings. By prolonging this period of “inactivity,” the OGP Steering Committee is giving Azerbaijan another year to implement meaningful reforms that will improve the operating environment for civil society organizations. However, Azerbaijan could be re-instated as a full member much earlier if it decides to make headway on OGP recommendations that will be elaborated in the coming month. In April the Azerbaijani government decided to leave the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), after the organization’s board suspended Azerbaijan for failing to ensure an enabling environment for civil society and reform the laws shackling the country’s non-governmental groups. “We hope that OGP would remain a space for collaboration between civil society and the government” the groups said.

ARTICLE 19 is an international non-governmental organization, working on freedom of expression and information at the international, regional and national levels.

CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation is an international alliance of civil society at the local, national, regional and international levels, dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society throughout the world.

Publish What You Pay (PWYP) is a global network of civil society organizations that are united in their call for an open and accountable extractive industry that contributes to improving the lives of women, men and youth in resource-rich countries.

Human Rights Watch is a global human rights organization that documents and exposes human rights abuses around the world.

          Aserbaidschan – Closed Space?   

Die Liste der in Aserbaidschan Verhafteten oder ins Exil getriebenen Journalist/innen und Menschenrechtler/innen ist lang [1]. Die Arbeit westlicher Stiftungen im Land ist praktisch unmöglich und auch das Nachbarland Georgien ist für Kritiker/innen von Ilham Aliyev nicht mehr sicher.

Der Westen hat nicht nur jahrelang tatenlos zugeschaut, sondern sich durch den Aliyev Klan vereinnahmen lassen, wie der andauernde Korruptionsskandal im Europarat deutlich macht. Soweit die ernüchternde Bilanz der Situation, aus der die Ausstellung „Drawing for Freedom“ entstand – eine Kooperation des Norwegischen Helsinki Komitees mit der Akademie der Künste Oslo, die bis 1. Juli in der Heinrich Böll Stiftung Berlin gezeigt wird.

Zwanzig Studierende der Nationalen Kunstakademie in Oslo stellten sich 2014 der Herausforderung, Kunstwerke zur Situation der politischen Gefangenen in Aserbaidschan zu schaffen. Im Mittelpunkt standen persönliche Geschichten von politischen Gefangenen. Nach Präsentationen in Oslo, im Pariser Rathaus und in Stockholm ist ein Teil der Ausstellung nun zum ersten Mal in Deutschland zu sehen.

Eine Ausstellung im Europarat wurde bisher durch den unter Korruptionsverdacht stehenden Präsidenten der Parlamentarischen Versammlung Pedro Agramunt verhindert, dem inzwischen das Misstrauen ausgesprochen wurde. [2] Die entstandenen Portraits wurden u.a. auch für Menschenrechtskampagnen genutzt, die sich teilweise erfolgreich für die Freilassung politischer Gefangener in Aserbaidschan einsetzten konnten.

Das erscheint besonders im Kontext der Tatsache relevant, dass die Machthaber in Baku sehr viel Wert darauf legen, ihr internationales Bild zu beschönigen, während sie versuchen, das ihrer Gegner/innen zu entstellen, so die Initiatorin der Ausstellung Berit Lindeman, Senior Advisor am Norwegischen Helsinki Komitee.


Reales oder virtuelles Aserbaidschan

Um sein Image im Inland und Ausland aufzupolieren, scheut das Aliyev Regime seit Jahren keine Mittel und Kosten. Beflügelt durch die Hochkonjunktur im fossilen Rohstoffsektor übertrafen Aserbaidschans Ausgaben für Lobbyismus die der meisten anderen Staaten.

Großveranstaltungen in der Hauptstadt Baku, wie das jüngste Formel 1 Rennen, gehören zum Standart-Repertoire, jedoch sponsern aserbaidschanische Stiftungen und Unternehmen darüber hinaus vor allem in Europa und den USA großzügig Bildungs-, Kultur- und Sportaktivitäten.

Eines der ausgestellten Bilder weist auf diese Verflechtungen hin, indem es die gotischen Kreuzkuppelgewölbe des Straßburger Münsters zeigt, dessen Restaurationsarbeiten (wie u.a. auch im Louvre und im Vatikan) durch die Heydar Aliev Stiftung finanziert wurden. Ziel der Machthaber war es dabei stets, das despotisch regierte Aserbaidschan als einen fortschrittlichen, wirtschaftlich erfolgreichen und toleranten Staat zu präsentieren, der großen Wert auf Kultur und Gemeinwohl legt.

„Früher hatten wir 4000 Wahlbeobachter, jetzt haben wir 600. Aber wir müssen weitermachen. Selbst wenn nur 50 Menschen zuhören, lohnt sich das.“ Anar Mammadli war von Dezember 2013 bis März 2016 in Haft, seit 2001 organisierte er unabhängige Wahlbeobachtung in Aserbaidschan.

Nach seiner Einschätzung hat sich das Land seit Ende 2013 gravierend verändert, die NGO- und Parteigesetzgebung, sowie die Versammlungs- und Pressefreiheit wurden extrem eingeschränkt. Die Regierung versuche außerdem, ein politisches Klima der Angst zu schaffen.

Durch die Unterdrückung von jeglichem Dissens und der unabhängigen Medien[3], willkürliche Verhaftungen und Vernehmungen wurde der Freiraum für die Zivilgesellschaft und freie Meinungsäußerung praktisch eliminiert. Mit diesem beispiellosen Angriff kam die Regierung einem Rückgang der Öl- und Gaseinnahmen zuvor – so Mammadli – in der Befürchtung, dass die Zivilgesellschaft in der Stagnation aktiver werde.

Die schwierige sozial-ökonomische Lage macht sich aktuell unter anderem in der Abwertung der Währung um 50 Prozent bemerkbar. Wie sich die Situation künftig entwickeln wird, hängt einerseits von der aserbaidschanischen Gesellschaft ab, andererseits von der Reaktion der internationalen Gemeinschaft.

„Es gibt keine Opposition im Parlament mehr und keine Debatten im TV. Die Regierung hat zwei Aserbaidschans geschaffen – ein reales und ein virtuelles. Und wir sind ein Teil des virtuellen Aserbaidschan ... leider.“ Lautete Anar Mammadlis Einschätzung. Er besitzt seit seiner Inhaftierung kein Büro und trifft sich mit Kolleg/nnen zuhause oder in Cafés.

Unter diesen Umständen werden viele Andersdenkende zur Immigration gezwungen. Die verbleibenden Gruppen, welche die Politik auf friedliche Art ändern wollen, kämpfen um ihr schieres Überleben. Nach Angaben von Reporter ohne Grenzen befinden sich derzeit mindestens 15 Journalist/innen in Haft, Dutzende sind mit der Ausreisesperre belegt, die Zahl der politischen Häftlinge wird aktuell auf 147 beziffert.[4]

Eine neue Realität

Bisher wähnten sich Aserbaidschans Regimekritiker/innen im Ausland in relativer Sicherheit. „Es kam schon vor, dass Journalisten in der Türkei verhaftet und ausgeliefert wurden. Doch mit der Entführung [des Journalisten Afgan Mukhtarli am 29. Mai 2017 aus Tbilisi nach Baku] wurde eine rote Linie überschritten.“[5]

Das Regime wolle nun „die Autokratie ins Ausland projizieren,“ meint ein Gast. Stunden nach dem Kidnapping und der Misshandlung durch georgische Uniformierte und mutmaßliche aserbaidschanische Sicherheitskräfte wurde Mukhtarli inhaftiert, während Aufnahmen der Überwachungskameras in Tbilisi angeblich verschwanden.

All das seien Zeichen der „neuen Realität“. Das Europäische Parlament forderte in einer Resolution[6] die rasche Aufklärung durch Georgien und die Freilassung von Mukhtarli durch Aserbaidschan, auch der europäische Gerichtshof reagierte. Die Reaktion der EU Kommission lässt noch auf sich warten.

Leider ist das kein Einzelfall, weitere durch Beschattung und Hausbesuche verunsicherte Aktivist/innen verließen bereits Georgien – wo viele Aserbaidschaner/innen leben – Richtung Westen. Doch auch Mitten in Berlin wurde das Studio des unabhängigen aserbaidschanischen Senders Meydan TV bereits 2014 angegriffen, Mitarbeiter/innen erhielten Drohungen.

It's time to stop business as usual

Die Haftentlassungen von Anar Mammadli, Hadija Ismailova und weiteren kritischen Journalist/innen Ende 2016 zeigt, wie effektiver politischer Druck auf Aserbaidschan durch Menschenrechtskampagnen aufgebaut werden kann. Die Erfüllung von Verpflichtungen im Bereich der Menschenrechte sollte von Aserbaidschan konsequent eingefordert werden.

Dazu müssten europäische und nicht zuletzt deutsche Politiker/innen, die glaubhaft bleiben wollen, in die Verantwortung genommen werden, meint Rebecca Vincent, ehemalige Diplomatin und Leiterin von Reporter ohne Grenzen in London.

Zur aktuellen desolaten Situation kam es auch durch die jahrelange Tatenlosigkeit europäischer Politiker, meint Berit Lindeman. Die Wahlen durch den Europarat sind in 2013 ungeachtet aller Kritik als frei und fair anerkannt worden. Das hatte verheerende Folgen in Aserbaidschan und fügte letztlich der europäischen Institution großen Schaden zu.

Gerald Knaus, Vorsitzender der Europäischen Stabilitätsinitiative (ESI) betont die grotesken gleichzeitigen Entwicklungen in 2014, während Aserbaidschan für ein halbes Jahr die Führung im Ministerrat des Europarats übernahm, wurde der Vaclav Havel Preis von der Parlamentarischen Versammlung des Europarats an Anar Mammadli verliehen, der gerade als aserbaidschanischer Menschenrechtsverteidiger inhaftiert war.

Die ESI legte bereits seit 2012 die „Caviar Diplomacy“ offen, das heißt die korrupten Verstrickungen Aserbaidschans, und zeigt auf, wie eine glaubwürdige Aserbaidschan-Strategie und die Integrität der europäischen Institution gesichert werden können. Gerald Knaus konnte in Berichten zeigen, dass Baku „sehr hart daran gearbeitet hat, die Begutachtung durch internationale Institutionen zu manipulieren“. Erst 2016 zeigte der zweite Bericht[7]

seine Wirkung: im Europarat hat er eine kleine Revolution ausgelöst. Durchsuchungen in den Straßburger Büros brachten belastendes Material darüber ans Licht, dass Fraktionschef der EVP Luca Volontè ca. 2,4 Millionen Euro vom aserbaidschanischen Europaratsabgeordneten Elkhan Suleymanov für seine Unterstützung kassierte.

Ist das bloß die Spitze des Eisbergs? Gegen den Präsidenten der parlamentarischen Versammlung, Pedro Agramunt, Gesicht der Klientelpolitik und seit 2010 Berichterstatter zu Aserbaidschan, läuft derzeit ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren. Die schwerste Krise im Europarat seit seiner Gründung mache eines klar: „das Scheitern Straßburgs, europäische Grundwerte zu verteidigen, sucht Europa jetzt heim.“[8]

Die zivilgesellschaftliche Opposition in Aserbaidschan

Der häufige Einwand gegen ein hartes Vorgehen, Aserbaidschan sei trotz aller Defizite ein stabiler strategischer Partner im Bereich der Energiesicherheit, als Transitkorridor etc., sei leicht zu entkräften, so Knaus. Eine Abhängigkeit Europas von Ressourcen[9] aus Baku bestehe nicht und selbst eine Abkühlung des Verhältnisses berge keine Gefahr für den Handel.

Europa hat außerdem ein übergeordnetes Interesse an glaubhaften Institutionen und sollte eine mögliche Reaktion Aserbaidschans in Kauf nehmen. Bei Verstößen sollten Reisesperren und weitere individuelle Sanktionen gegen konkrete Verantwortliche verhängt werden, um Glaubwürdigkeit zu erzeugen – darin sind sich die Redner/innen einig.

Ein Staat, der internationale Verpflichtungen systematisch missachtet, in dem Gesetzlichkeit erodiert, kann nicht als ein zuverlässiger Partner gelten. Einmalig an Aserbaidschan ist für Gerald Knaus die beeindruckende Anzahl von jungen Menschen, die trotz geringer Unterstützung von außen und Repressionen Gruppen bilden, sich für Menschenrechte und politische Gefangene einsetzen und die eine aktive einheimische Szene darstellen.

Der Zusammenbruch eines Regimes kann nie vorausgesagt werden, jedoch sei eine handlungsfähige zivilgesellschaftliche Opposition immer der Schlüssel für eine friedliche Transformation gewesen.

Schließlich sollten die Europäer/innen den aserbaidschanischen Autoritarismus-Kritiker/innen zeigen, dass ihre Sache Europa genau so am Herzen liegt wie das, was Vaclav Havel und Gleichgesinnte in den 80er Jahren taten – und zwar nicht nur aus humanitären Gründen.

          Dennis to sever links with McLaren in end of an era   

McLaren chairman Ron Dennis

Ron Dennis, the chairman of McLaren’s Formula One team and separate sports carmaker, will step down from his role at the brand and sell his shares, ending a 37-year relationship which soured in recent months alongside race-track failings. The 70-year-old was placed on garden leave last November after losing a boardroom battle with the team’s shareholders. But yesterday it was announced that Ron Dennis has sold his 25 per cent share in the McLaren Technology Group, officially bringing to an end 37 years at the helm of the Woking-based constructor. Dennis spearheaded McLaren to nearly 20 Formula One drivers’ and constructors’ championships, and was instrumental in Lewis Hamilton’s career after he signed him in 2007. McLaren, however, have failed to win a race in nearly five years, and are last in this season’s championship despite Fernando Alonso scoring their first points of the campaign in Azerbaijan last Sunday. “I am very pleased to have reached agreement with my fellow McLaren shareholders,” Dennis said. “It represents a fitting end to my time at McLaren, and will enable me to focus on my other interests. I have always said that my 37 years at Woking should be considered as a...

          Ex-Skispringer startet bei Tour de France    

Bei der Tour de France starten heute (ab 15 Uhr im LIVETICKER) wieder allerlei Experten. Zeitfahrer, Sprinter, Bergspezialisten – und ein Skispringer.

Die Vita von Primoz Roglic ist unter den Fahrern des 198-köpfigen Feldes vielleicht die ungewöhnlichste.

Der 27-Jährige gewann in seiner früheren Karriere als Skispringer unter anderem die Junioren-WM 2007 mit dem Team, wurde Zweiter im Mannschaftsspringen bei der WM 2006.

Doch irgendwann kam der Einbruch bei Roglic, aber der Slowene hatte eine andere Idee für seine Karriere im Hinterkopf. "Es war ein Traum von mir, Radprofi zu werden, seit ich mir mein erstes Rad kaufte. Da war ich schon 22 Jahre alt", sagte Rogic der Bild.

Als Skispring-Profi war Rogic das letzte Mal 2012 aktiv, dann konzentrierte er sich voll auf den Radsport. Mit einem Ziel: Tour de France.

"Eines Tages musste ich es versuchen, es war ständig in meinem Kopf. Ich wusste, irgendwann würde ich zu alt sein", sagte Rogic.

Seine ersten Fahrversuche nahm er beim slowenischen Team Adria Mobil. Seit 2016 startet er für die niederländische Mannschaft von Lotto NL-Jumbo.

Die ersten Erfolge stellten sich schnell ein. Beim Giro d'Italia 2016 gewann er eine Etappe, holte bei der Slowenien-Rundfahrt und der Tour de Azerbaijan die Gesamtwertung. 2017 siegte er bei der Algarve-Rundfahrt.

Auch im Zeitfahren kann Roglic mehrere gute Ergebnisse vorweisen – beim Giro d'Italia verpasste er den Sieg nur um eine Hundertstelsekunde. Dass der Start der Tour de France in Düsseldorf zu Festspielen für den Deutschen Tony Martin wird, will er verhindern. "Ich hoffe, dass ich die Party verderben kann", zitiert die Sportschau den Slowenen.

          Hamilton Moves In On F1 Pole Record   

Mercedes AMG’s Lewis Hamilton continued to rewrite Formula One history Saturday, when he qualified on-pole for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix at the expense of boyhood hero Ayrton Senna. Hamilton’s fast lap of 1-minute, 40.593-seconds set a track qualifying record around the 3.730-mile/6.003-kilometer/20-turn Baku City Circuit. Hamilton’s hot lap was 0.434-seconds better than runnerup and teammate Valtteri [...]
          Comment on Caption Competition 132: Baku driving | Caption Competition by Steven Smith   
Azerbaijan Touring Car Championships delighted to be able to support the F1 race.
          Comment on 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix team radio transcript | Caption Competition by Bernard Rossi   
Indeed this comment from LH bluntly contradicts his claim [and that of a variety of English MSM presstitutes] that he needed to slow down by heavily and suddenly applying his brakes at the apex of a blind right-angle corner. To all on this blog, this information should be clear evbidence that LH unlawfully and deliberately brake tested to try and force Vettel to pit and thus relieve the intense pressure LH felt from the Ferrari of Vettel. No wonder the Guardian saw fit to attack Vettel in a defamatory way, accusing him of deliberately running into the back of Hamilton without a shred of any such probative and conclusive evidence in support. Such a claim reflects a sort of lowest common denominator approach to try and cover-up what is effectively an unlawful and rightly sanctionable act on behalf of LH and the (stuttering) MB team.
          Comment on 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix team radio transcript | Caption Competition by Bernard Rossi   
Clearly your comment has failed to comprehend the prima facie meaning and purpose of the phrase "no erratic acceleration or braking " in the rule you have quoted above. 39.13 has previously been used to sanction drivers engaged in brake testing, just as Mr Hamilton was. Doing this at the apex of a blind corner of a difficult street circuit only heightens the underlying purpose of the clause to protect drivers from selfish acts of anti-competitive and down-right stupidly dangerous tactics. No apology required from me (or Mr Vettel) for LH's unlawful conduct. The fact that the British press saw fit to defame Vettel, as an attempt to cover-up Mr Hamilton's mis-demeanour is not the act of an apologist, but rather recognition of a desperate driver whose vehicle no-longer monopolises the podium. The Guardian then added vitriolic and violent threats from Mr Hamilton to create more unnecessary hype and stir-up the pointless racial enmity Brits tend to in respect of their teutonic cousins. Quite amusing, but totally destructive for the global audience of such spectacle. UK media should just grow-up...or better still simply be silent on the issue.
          Eurovision Round Up: Semi-Final 1   

It's finally time. The greatest event on the world calendar is finally with us. Granted, it was with Europe a couple of days ago, but it takes a long time for the ship with copies of the tapes to reach Australia. Tonight on SBS is Semi-Final 1. And I am here with the annual round up of this Semi-Final. Ten of the songs in tonight's show will go to the Final on Sunday night (AEST).

Montenegro
Thanks to the bondage women for their support in the Black Mountain's song tonight. Stefan did a pretty good job. Pity about the hair though. Obviously girl's hair is the thing in Montenegro. As are red handprints. Bit of a rock-type song, which has been quite popular of late. Not sure if Europe would really enjoy it though - the lead guitar did go off though. That was pleasing to hear. What wasn't pleasing to see was his face. Poor man.
Six points

Israel
Israel usually has good looking men. Well that's what I've certainly seen in porn anyway. And look, I'm not complaining about Boaz's big arms. And he's only 20. Bless his soul. The voice could do with some work though. He just didn't quite sound that right. Not too funny really... as opposed to him singing in English. It's always entertaining to hear Europeans sing in English. There's something about hearing them make an r sound that tickles my funny bone.
Six points

Estonia
Crazy Radio has been trying to get into Eurovision for a while. Obviously they were judged on their looks. But their choreography is probably the best I've ever seen in Eurovision history. Nothing can beat old men bopping to music. And these men could even be mistaken for The Wiggles. It's great. It's also wonderful to see a song about veggies and scantly-clad women waving flags. I wonder if anything else of theirs is flapping...
Sept points

Moldova
Pink eyeshadow used to be in fashion, I'm sure. Whether Geta has checked the latest catwalks or not I can't say, but man she painted it on. Big mistake. Big mistake to also be standing on a couch. Everyone always heard their mothers scream "Get the fuck off the couch! Couches are sitting on, not jumping on!" yet Geta obviously missed that part of her upbringing. But I suppose the couch does match the fact that this is lounge music, and hey, not too bad either. It just feels as though it is missing something. Oh no, there it was - the singing in English.
Quatre points

San Marino
Welcome to SM and Miodio. There is a reason why you were left in Italy on your own for so long. Couldn't they find a better-looking lead singer? Already it seems that black and white are the colours/shades for the evening, though this song did leave me in a bit of a blue mood. The old ghost-like figure was a nice touch. Diverted the eyes away from the singer for a touch. Pity he didn't seem all that strong with the vocals - he'll need a bit of practice if he gets through.
Quatre points

Belgium
Thank christ for a made-up language. And thank christ for a boiled lolly dress! You can always trust Belgium to bring us the crazy ESC entries. Nothing says fucking fantastic more than the use of the clarinet in a song. I'm enjoying this one immensely. And obviously the crowd is too. Joyous! And those tiny bowler hats are simply wonderful. A nice touch. Ooh Julissi...
Douze points

Azerbaijan
Huh? What? Angels? A male? That's a male? Now I'm confused. Not even 6 year old boys can get that high. Well, there's certainly a bulge there, so we can rule that option out. Bit of a crazy song, angels against the darkness. Impressive though and possibly quite a popular one. Has that Arabic feel but not completely overdone like some Soviet countries have done in the past. I quite liked it and the pyrotechnics helped the cause.
Huit points

Slovenia
I'm always a fan of bondage. I'm already hooked. And finally - true Eurovision! Costume changes, music one can dance to, wind machine ... it's all there as it should be. And hot men in black... on roller skates. Being lead on leashes. What more can you ask for? This could be a big disco hit. Enjoyable. One of the best so far!
Douze points

Norway
A stage of blondes, a perfect pop song and more windy hair - Eurovision continues. I don't think Maria would ever be lonely, neither would any of her back up singers. And of course that's based on her singing ability, which is quite good. I enjoyed this one. Pure pop and well crafted. I would've liked to have seen more cleavage. That might have helped win more votes.
Dix points

Poland
Isis Gee is quite a women. It's hard to work out if she's really really blonde, or really really tanned. Or is that dress really really blue? It is really really tight though. A beautiful ballad presented by Poland tonight, a typical ballad for the Contest and one that is sure to be a favourite of many. And the best thing about Miss Bright-Hair-Bright-Teeth-Dark-Skin is that she is quite a powerful singer. I could imagine Dicko, Marcia and Kyle's comments already...
Huit points

Ireland
A puppet. Great. The only reason why I'm currently bopping is because of the music... and the fact that there are hot men dressed for the Mardi Gras. Extra points for that. It's quite an interesting song, and one that would probably do quite well if there was a human as the artist and not as the hand-up-the-arse. Extra points for the costumes - for the first time in history, orange, green and white have been used quite well in costumes. But it's good for the Irish to know they've got no hope of winning this year.
Deux points

Andorra
Oh Casanova save me! Welcome back to Eurovision after the minor hiccup that was a turkey. And welcome to Andorra who have one of the favourites for this year's Contest. It is a fun one too. Nothing says fun more than someone wearing a hat which makes them look like a bee. The crazy dominatrix dress doesn't help the cause either. But she's enjoying it. And honestly, so am I.
Douze points

Bosnia and Herzegovina
Ahhh a wedding. It's been a while. However, I would be distressed to find my brother hiding with my knickers. By looking at the two singers, I'm worried about their mental health. Maybe they were locked in a cellar for 20 years. As for the song, it's quite a catchy one. It has got quite a lot of parts all woven together and the spoken parts really set it off. Quite a fun song and one I will be listening to again.
Dix points

Armenia
Hello good looking boys in black. I just need to cut the hair off. And then there's the actual singer, with rotating hips of steel. I wonder if there are men jumping at the chance to hold her tight? Back to the boys though - they need to visit Australia. Armenian dancer boys, if you're reading this, my bed's available. Qele, qele! I'd dance to this often. Woohoo!
Huit points

The Netherlands
My bed's obviously not going to be big enough for the Armenian boys and now the Dutch boys. I suppose I could squeeze them in. I can say that I'm enjoying Hind's contribution to Eurovision this year. Very sultry woman. Very dark and brooding. I like it. Beautiful pop music too, which makes the whole thing so much better. Extra points for the hot boys and their overalls.
Dix points

Finland
Ever since Lordi, rock has been prominent. And it seems Finland think they need to capture Lordi again to win. Hey, I'm not complaining about seeing half naked rock men going like crazy on stage... but I'm not sure it's going to work again this year. It's not a bad song by any means and certainly not as heavy as Lordi's effort - it's something I'd listen to regularly. I wonder what their other stuff is like. But for Eurovision? I dunno.
Six points

Romania
Hello Nico and Vlad! Ahhh it's nice to hear a calming ballad, beautifully sung, contrasted with a slightly more upbeat section. I'm not sure about her green things. Why they're hanging off her dress, I really don't know. Other than that, this song is quite a nice one. I like this one. And his eyes too.
Huit points

Russia
So, the weightlifter's massive in Serbia. Yes. We can see that -it's sticking out right in front of me. Now the song... A perfect boy song. I have a feeling that Dima would've sung far better in Russian than in English but still, he did a pretty good job. I am confused about the skater though. How he fits in is probably something that needs reading up on. Extra extra points for the opening of the shirt. No wonder the world loves Russian men...
Dix points

Greece
A HUGE favourite from Greece this year, and of course she doesn't disappoint. Secret Combination is Eurovision at its best - pop, synth beats, colourful dresses and (relatively) good looking male back up dancers. The huge-assed heart really tops the whole thing off. A crowd favourite and sure-fire hit. This one could do quite well in the Oz charts if it was to be released. Well done Greece. They obviously know how to party.
Douze points

And now it's all done. Semi 1 complete. Before Europe has their say I need to have mine!

Hello Belgrade. Hello Europe. My selection for the final, in no particular order, is:
1. Belgium
2. Slovenia
3. Andorra
4. Norway
5. Bosnia and Herzegovina
6. The Netherlands
7. Russia
8. Greece
9. Armenia
10. Poland

And the real results... Israel, Azerbaijan, Norway, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Armenia, Finland, Romania, Russia and Greece.

Seven out of ten. Not bad. But disappointed that all my faves didn't get through. The rest better be bloody good tomorrow! Typical Eurovision.

Until then...

          Opponents of new Kosovo must be stopped - Joseph Biden   
By Joseph Biden
Published: January 2 2007 19:12 | Last updated: January 2 2007 19:12
Years of hand-wringing and chest-thumping over the future status of Kosovo may finally be drawing to a close. In the next few months, adroit diplomacy to secure Kosovo’s independence could yield a victory for Muslim democracy, a better future for south-east Europe and validation for the judicious use of American power.

But along with the potential for triumph in Kosovo, there is a growing risk that Serbia and Russia will conspire to seize defeat from the jaws of victory. Extremists in Belgrade and Moscow are – for very different reasons – hoping to use Russia’s United Nations Security Council veto to quash Kosovo’s bid for independence. If they succeed, the Balkans will emerge as another source of bad news in a world already crowded with crises.


ADVERTISEMENT
During the seven years since Nato ended Slobodan Milosevic’s reign of terror in Kosovo, a UN-backed administration has largely succeeded in bringing stability to the province. However, Kosovo’s people are justifiably tired of a status quo marked by uncertainty and economic privation. These two intertwined problems will continue so long as the debate over the province’s future remains unresolved. Its ambiguous status is also leading to stagnation in Serbia.

Nationalist politicians in Belgrade have embraced the fight against Kosovo’s independence to divert public attention from their own failures and Serbia’s stalled bid for European Union membership. The actions of Vojislav Kostunica, Serbia’s prime minister, have been particularly disappointing. In addition to refusing international requests to call for the arrest of war crimes fugitives Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, Mr Kostunica has rejected every attempt at compromise on Kosovo. Serbia’s moral authority on the issue hit a new low in October when the 1.5m ethnic Albanian residents of the province were denied the right to vote in a deeply flawed constitutional referendum that declared Kosovo an integral part of Serbia.

To their great credit, the people of Serbia have proved more realistic about Kosovo than their elected leaders. Opinion polls show that many Serbs foresee that the province will gain independence. Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo, meanwhile, overwhelmingly expect to sever ties with Serbia. With citizens on both sides of the issue ready to finish the debate and move on to more constructive challenges, leaders who block a solution will do so at their peril.

Historically, trouble in the Balkans is almost always the result of false expectations. On the whole, the citizens of south-east Europe are mentally prepared for an independent Kosovo.

If Belgrade postpones a settlement it will reopen the issue for many Serbs previously resigned to Kosovo’s independence and further inflame frustrations among the region’s ethnic Albanians. The result could be a return of the mob violence that shook Kosovo in March 2004.

A Russian effort to delay a deal on Kosovo would be in keeping with the Kremlin’s habit of fostering weak, subservient governments in formerly communist states. Moscow has apparently reached the conclusion that impoverished, unstable regimes are easier targets for manipulation than prosperous, independent countries. It has made extensive, public use of oil and gas diplomacy to undermine the budding democracies of eastern Europe. Less attention has focused on the Kremlin’s quiet efforts to exacerbate territorial conflicts in Georgia, Moldova and Azerbaijan. Serbia could become the latest victim of this strategy.

Kosovo is not ready for full sovereignty. Even after independence, Nato and the international community will need to provide security guarantees for Kosovo’s minorities and strengthen its economy and institutions. But it is time to grant the province independence. The longer the status debate continues, the further Kosovo and Serbia will fall behind other rapidly progressing former Yugoslav republics such as Croatia and Slovenia.

Success in Kosovo, if realised, will have implications far beyond the Balkans. A responsible Russian approach to the issue could demonstrate the Kremlin’s commitment to global order at a time when its credibility is in tatters. The people of Kosovo – already the most pro-American in the Islamic world – will provide a much-needed example of a successful US-Muslim partnership. Stability in south-east Europe would be a welcome bit of good news and offer hope in a season of tremendous foreign policy challenges.

          WHERE WILL CHINA´S "ONE BELT, ONE ROAD" INITIATIVE LEAD? / KNOWLEDGE@WHARTON   

Where Will China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ Initiative Lead?




As advertised by Beijing, the “One Belt, One Road” (OBOR) initiative, China’s grand scheme for knitting a network of roads, ports, railways and other links from East China through Southeast and South and Central Asia all the way to Europe exceeds both in scope and ambition the Marshall Plan used to rebuild Europe after World War II.

The “belt” of land-based links is paired with a 21st century “Maritime Silk Road” stretching from Australia to Zanzibar. Chinese President Xi Jinping launched the OBOR initiative in 2013, two years after then-U.S. President Barack Obama initiated the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trading bloc across the Pacific region. Now that Obama successor Donald Trump has carried out his pledge to withdraw from the TPP, the expectations are that Chinese-backed strategies like the OBOR will gain momentum. China experts say that this is a positive development, but there is skepticism over whether Beijing will follow through with the gargantuan amount of funding needed, whether big debt-financed projects bankrolled by China will benefit the recipient countries, and whether those projects will actually make sense in the long run.

For many countries in the region, China is by far the biggest source of financing: Beijing’s Export and Import Bank of China alone lent $80 billion in 2015, compared with more than $27 billion from the Asian Development Bank. Chinese involvement in building railways, ports, roads, dams and industrial corridors is helping to expand its economic and geopolitical sway across Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa.

China experts and economists say that the initiative makes sense and that it will accelerate as the U.S. turns more insular under Trump. “It is unfortunate that many U.S. diplomats and members of the previous administration worked for nearly a decade to push toward the TPP and now it is torn apart,” says Louis Kuijs, head of Asia Economics at Oxford Economics in Hong Kong. The U.S. is turning its back on the rest of the world at a time when the world needs an open and engaged America, he says. “It is very likely and understandable that China … will try to fill those gaps with this initiative, and that is very logical — it’s something the U.S. will later deeply regret,” Kuijs says.

The OBOR effort has not gotten the degree of attention it deserves, says Pieter Bottelier, visiting scholar of China Studies at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington. “I am concerned that its significance is underrated in the U.S. and in the West in general. It is a very positive initiative and a major vision of how China can collaborate with countries in its neighborhood, Europe, Latin America and Africa in a way that is in the long-term interest of China and [the global economy],” Bottelier says.

The geopolitical aspects of the OBOR initiative could eventually draw attention from the Trump administration, given its strong stance on national security. “It is an economic initiative, but along the way China will expand its military bases and so forth,” says Wharton emeritus professor Franklin Allen, who also is a professor of finance and economics at Imperial College London. “On the sea routes they will develop their military capability and on the land routes, too.”

From Kuijs’ point of view, Beijing views the OBOR initiative as a strategy needed to support its growing economic might. “Many outsiders are skeptical and do not know exactly what it is, but it is taken very, very seriously by the Chinese government and we should take this very seriously,” he says. “The Chinese government is thinking, ‘We are the second-biggest economy in the world, and it may take 10 years or 20 years but we will be the world’s biggest economy at some point.’”

While it is sweeping in scope like the stalled TPP, which aims to create a trading bloc around the Pacific Rim, the “One Belt, One Road” plan is not a free trade agreement. It’s more of a blueprint for integrating China’s trading partners by developing their infrastructure — ports, roads, airports and railways — in a way that complements Beijing’s own interests. Infrastructure-led development worked well for China, in Beijing’s view, and now it wants to expand that approach internationally, Kuijs says.

The “One Belt” refers to a “Silk Road Economic Belt” from China through Central Asia to Europe. The “One Road” refers to Beijing’s concept of a “21st century Maritime Silk Road” to connect China to Europe via the South China Sea and Indian Ocean. The initiative involves developing six economic “corridors”: a China-Mongolia-Russia corridor; a new Eurasian “Land Bridge”; a corridor from China to Central Asia and Western Asia; a China-Indochina peninsula corridor; and, a China-Pakistan economic corridor; and 6. a Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar economic corridor.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January that more than 100 countries and international organizations have given warm responses and support to the initiative and that more than 40 countries and international organizations have signed cooperation agreements. So far, Chinese companies have made more than $50 billion of OBOR-related investments and launched a number of major projects in the countries along the route, he added. At least 65 countries are included in the OBOR initiative.

Unanswered Questions

While the grand vision is laudable, there are many unanswered questions: How would it be done? And what would be the project, environmental and engineering standards implemented under this umbrella?

“There would be serious doubts over protection of minority populations and environmental concerns,” Bottelier says. As for the scale of OBOR, there’s no consensus over how many projects it would involve at what cost and in what time frame. “It is pretty obvious that there is no limit to the amount of infrastructure that is needed in those countries.”

The Asian Development Bank says infrastructure development in Asia and the Pacific will exceed $22.6 trillion through 2030, or $1.5 trillion per year. In a recent report, “Meeting Asia’s Infrastructure Needs” issued in February, the estimate rises to more than $26 trillion, or $1.7 trillion a year when costs for climate change adaptation and mitigation are included. “This is a grand vision, and it may take a decade, but there is no rush. You cannot really put any number on the total investment,” says Rajiv Biswas, Singapore-based Asia-Pacific chief economist at IHS Markit.

The China-led Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, or AIIB, is seen as a linchpin for OBOR financing. So far, however, it has provided only $1.73 billion to support infrastructure projects in seven countries, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Tajikistan, Indonesia, Myanmar, Azerbaijan and Oman since it was launched in January 2016.

Noriyoshi Ehara, chief economist at the Tokyo-based Institute for International Trade and Investment, says the financial infrastructure for OBOR is gradually taking shape. Apart from AIIB, China also has a $40 billion Silk Road Fund and a New Development Bank to fund the OBOR initiative. “There has been good progress in getting these frameworks in place,” Ehara says. Ultimately, he adds, Beijing may not limit OBOR to infrastructure but may make it the foundation for regional and bilateral free trade areas (FTAs). “We are not sure if China will succeed, but the world is changing, and more and more countries are joining this initiative,” he says. With the TPP in trouble, OBOR is getting more attention.

China’s Deep Pockets

Already, more than $900 billion in projects are planned or underway, Fitch Ratings noted in a report titled “China’s One Belt and One Road Initiative Brings Risks.” It says most funding will likely come from China’s policy banks, the Export and Import Bank of China, China Development Bank and its largest commercial banks. “We estimate that outstanding loans from Chinese banks total $1.2 trillion, and a large portion of that has financed infrastructure projects involving Chinese state-owned enterprises,” the report says. China also has other major financial resources such as its sovereign wealth fund and foreign exchange reserves.

One project that got a head start was construction of a railway link from the port of Piraeus in Greece to Eastern Europe. Piraeus is a gateway to Europe for Chinese products, and major Chinese companies have been using the port to enter the European market. China, through its China Ocean Shipping Company, bought a 67% stake in the port’s Pier I from the Piraeus Port Authority SA in January 2016.

The European Union (EU) is welcoming OBOR, but cautiously. “China basically owns Piraeus Port close to Athens and this railroad is meant to link all the way up to Budapest in Hungary, which also is an EU member,” notes Kuijs. “The EU is now looking at this project, which clearly is projecting China all the way into Europe, to see to what extent it is compatible with EU rules and principles.”

Apart from questions over whether Chinese-led projects might conform with global standards on such issues as environmental protection and labor rights, some economists question if a massive, policy-led OBOR push on infrastructure development will turn out to be economically sound. “Let’s see what kinds of projects they are getting in the next couple of years and what kinds of returns they are getting,” Biswas says. “Because in the end, if they are not delivering on the returns, then the banks that are lending will eventually say we need to be careful and we cannot keep doing this without any returns because it has to be commercially viable.”

A flood of lending to smaller countries lacking strong foreign exchange reserves might not be able to repay the loans if projects fail to generate revenue as expected. Fitch warns in its report on OBOR that some of the loans are large enough to have an impact on borrowing countries’ public finances, if debt-servicing from project proceeds becomes a problem.

That problem already is surfacing in Sri Lanka, where China signed a deal in late 2016 to further develop the strategic port of Hambantota and build a huge industrial zone nearby. China has spent almost $2 billion so far on Hambantota and a new airport. But hundreds of Sri Lankans clashed with police at the opening of construction in January of the industrial zone in the south, saying they would not be moved from their land. It was the first time opposition to Chinese investments in Sri Lanka turned violent. Newly elected Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena had said the new port deal with China was unfair in his campaign, but after taking office approved an agreement to lease an 80% stake in the port to the China Merchants Holdings for 99 years in exchange for $1.1 billion in debt relief.

Concerns over the ability of smaller developing countries to protect their own interests underscore the need for involvement of Western countries, especially from the EU, since Japan and the U.S. have continued to shun the AIIB. “You have weaker institutional capacity and weaker governments like in Cambodia and Central European countries. They may be persuaded by Beijing to take on large debt to finance projects. They and other developing countries in the past ended up with large debts incurred to finance dubious projects that do not help their economies. That is the risk for countries that do not have the capacity to independently make cost-benefit analyses,” Kuijs says.

While there’s nothing wrong with investing more in poor countries, and in increasing economic interactions between poor countries and China and the rest of the world, “it would be beneficial for Western countries to take this initiative very seriously and to become its counterparts in this rather than having China sort it by itself,” he says.

Of course, that begs the question of whether China would welcome their involvement. “This is China’s initiative, but this is not the AIIB. They want the rest of Asia to be part of it, but more on a bilateral level,” says Biswas. China’s vision is of a partnership with other developing countries in Asia. “Having Europe be part of it is a different story,” he says. “One Belt, One Road is relevant for Europe since China wants to link its rail to Europe. So, China wants Europe to be part of [OBOR], but not as a key driver,” Biswas added.

China’s Slowdown Is a Catalyst

One of the main factors driving the OBOR effort is the slowdown in China’s own economy. The Communist Party is striving to transition away from growth led by investment and exports to development led by domestic consumer demand and services, and to keep growth at more sustainable levels than in the past. The government set a growth target of 6.5% in 2017 at the National People’s Congress in March, down from a 2016 target of 6.5% to 7%. In a sense, China is seeking to export the investment-led part of its economy, to help its own overbuilt heavy industries and provinces.

But Kuijs doubts OBOR projects will do much to help China with its huge overcapacity problems in many industries, especially steel, glass and cement. Compared to the size of China’s steel industry or other industries, it would take a very long time for demand from the projects to be big enough to make a difference, he says. “Many of the projects are far away from China, and some types of steel are worth transporting but not all kinds of steel. It would not help reduce excess capacity of cement because it is not economically viable to transport cement over such long distances,” Kuijs says. Bottelier, also, sees overcapacity as only a marginal factor in the OBOR plan.

Looking back at how far China has come since it launched its market-oriented reforms and opened its economy, there’s reason to hope the OBOR strategy will have a significant impact over time, Allen says. “It is quite likely that China will succeed in this initiative, though it may take a half-century.”
