Estonia, niente risposte a Italia il 6/7

          You can win local art in the Celebrate Summer Giveaway, now through July 14   


[embed-1]If you're like us you follow local artists religiously because you know that some day, somehow, said artists will feature their pieces at a discount, or, heck, even give them away.

All told, the goods are a $2,000 value, featuring a framed Roxanne painting, Proud Mary clutch and tunic, a pair of Lizzie Fortunato silk tassel earrings, and 12 organic smoothie cups from Daily Harvest. more…

          As the dust settles: Russian authorities move against protesters and campaigners   

New evidence of police violations against protesters emerges, and regional authorities take aim at Alexei Navalny's campaign offices. 

Conditions for people detained at anti-corruption protests have been poor. Image: Polina Kostyleva.

We continue our partnership with OVD-Infoan NGO that monitors politically-motivated arrests in Russia. Every Friday, we bring you the latest information on freedom of assembly. 

We have collected and analysed a large number of reports of violations by Russian police officers at anti-corruption rallies held on 12 June. Now we are able to say with certainty there have been 109 violations. Police officers exceeded the permitted time for administrative detention, wrote official reports with numerous mistakes, and did not allow lawyers to visit those detained. In one of the St Petersburg police stations, a detainee contracted pneumonia after spending the night in a cold cell. This was despite the fact that he had warned the police officers he was in poor health and should not get cold. The list of violations with legal commentaries can be seen here.

This week a number of individuals requested political asylum abroad. Krasnodar artists Lusiney Dzhanyan and Aleksei Knedlyakovsky requested asylum in Sweden. The artists said that their telephones had been tapped, and in 2013 Dzhanyan was dismissed from Krasnodar University of Culture for supporting Pussy Riot and exhibiting in a gallery owned by Marat Gelman. But it’s not only those who create modern art who can fall victim to persecution. Children’s drawings in chalk can also evoke the dissatisfaction of the authorities. Mikhail Petrov, a martial arts trainer from Pskov, has left Russia because he feared persecution by the authorities. It is thought the authorities’ interest in the trainer was related to the fact that he and his students had drawn anti-military drawings on the walls of buildings belonging to a military air assault division. He has requested political asylum in Estonia. 

Supporters of Alexei Navalny continue to be persecuted. In the town of Cherepovets, writer and journalist Elena Kolyadina was dismissed by the newspaper Golos Cherepovtsa for giving a lecture to staff of Navalny’s local election campaign office. In the Siberian city of Barnaul, the coordinator of the campaign office was injured with a knife, while earlier someone set fire to one of the office’s windows. In Vladimir, the local branch of the Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network asked its chief engineer to resign because he had headed Navalny’s local campaign office. Meanwhile, in Rostov-on-Don a car belonging to the head of Navalny’s office was covered with paint and its tyres were punctured.

The Investigative Committee completed its investigation into one more defendant in the “26 March case”. Dmitry Krepkin is charged with using force against a police officer during the anti-corruption protest in Moscow. Krepkin maintains his innocence. Moreover, he has said that he was himself assaulted at the time of his detention at the 26 March protest. Doctors at the emergency medical centre recorded bruising all over his body. He had been struck at least six times.   

The pre-trial detention of mathematician Dmitry Bogatov was extended until 31 August. Bogatov has been charged with incitement to riot on the grounds that he had posted appeals on the SysAdmins.ru forum to go out on to Red Square on 2 April 2017 under the pseudonym of “Airat Bashirov”. The appeals were sent from Bogatov’s IP address. However, since Bogatov operates a Tor exit node, any user could have posted the materials using his IP.

          Kalle Rovanperä, WRC y Británico de Rallies en 2018   
kalle-rovanpera-wrc-mas-britanico-de-ral

Kalle Rovanperä es apenas un adolescente, pero la expectación que está creando en el mundo de los rallies es similar a la que generó Max Verstappen cuando escaló a la Fórmula 1. A sus 16 años, el hijo de Harri Rovanperä ya ha competido a los mandos de varios R5 en los Nacionales de Estonia, Finlandia o Italia e incluso ha rodado con el Ford Fiesta RS WRC de la anterior generación, además de probar en un test el Toyota Yaris WRC. Kalle Rovanperä debutará en el seno del WRC en el Rally de Gales, pero a partir de ahí su futuro irá paso a paso.

Su entorno, con su representante a la cabeza, han diseñado un camino lógico y sosegado para el joven piloto finlandés. En este aspecto, está previsto que en 2018 dispute al menos seis pruebas del WRC con un vehículo R5 dentro de la categoría WRC2. Las pruebas candidatas a este programa son Argentina, México, Finlandia, Australia, Gales y España por las limitaciones de edad que tendrá un Rovanperä que no cumplirá los 18 años hasta la recta final de la temporada. Sin embargo, no será el único programa para el piloto suomi, ya que Kalle Rovanperä disputará algunas pruebas del Campeonato Británico de Rallies.

Será en 2019 cuando Kalle tenga un programa completo en WRC2 con intención de luchar por el título, aunque antes de esto deberá foguearse en el Británico de Rallies (BRC), un escenario perfecto para aprender, tal y como ha explicado en 'Autosport' el mánager de Rovanperä, Timo Jouhki: "El BRC es muy buen escenario. Hay algunas colisiones en el calendario con el WRC, así que tendremos que ver cómo encaja todo. Será muy útil para él hacer el BRC en paralelo a las rondas del WRC previstas. El Británico de Rallies es un buen lugar para aprender. Hay muchas superficies diferentes y distintos tipos de eventos".

           Estonia, niente risposte a Italia il 6/7    
TALLIN - Alla riunione informale dei ministri dell'interno Ue del prossimo 6-7 luglio a Tallin "non daremo nessuna risposta, ma ascolteremo dall'Italia quali sono stati i cambiamenti quest'ultima settimana" per vedere "come affrontare la questione della protezione delle frontiere, dei porti e le relazioni con la Libia". Così ha risposto a chi gli chiedeva quali soluzioni concrete sono in preparazione il ministro dell'interno estone Andres Anvelt, che guiderà i lavori dei colleghi Ue la prossima settimana.

          Franta si Estonia, un model de plasare a tarilor inteligente pe fluxurile esentiale ale lumii de astazi   
Din punctul meu de vedere, alegerile prezidentiale din Franta si alegerile parlamentare constituie un punct de cotitura important in istoria democratiei europene. Am vazut in ce fel o elita super-scolita, competenta, tanara, fara experienta politica si fara complexe, sustinuta de o populatie educata si inteleapta, a stiut sa schimbe definitiv foaia istoriei pe care au zburdat fosilele politice imbatranite si blazate. Tot ce fac acesti oameni noi / presedintele, primul ministru guvernul si 2/3 din parlamentari / imi starneste interesul pentru ca simt un aer de prospetime si de nemaivazut. In acest context am urmarit cu interes si maniera in care primul ministru Edouard Philippe si-a gandit prima vizita oficiala in strainatate -Pourquoi Edouard Philippe a choisi l’Estonie pour son premier voyage a l’etranger ,Alexandre Boudet , Huffington Post, ed.fr, 28.06.2017. El nu a optat pentru Germania, asa cum a facut presedintele Emmanuel Macron care s-a gandit la reactivarea motorului Europei in noul context creat. Nu a optat nici pentru o tara cu care Franta intretine relatii diplomatice particulare , conditionate de interese economice de anvergura . Nu ! A optat pentru Estonia , unde sunt numai vreo 500 de expati francezi . De ce Estonia ? In primul rand : de la 1 iulie 2017 Estonia preia presedintia Uniunii Europene. Alegand Estonia ca o prima destinatie diplomatica Edouard Philippe vrea sa transmita mesajul ca pentru Matignon Europa ramane o prioritate guvernamentala ; In al doilea rand : se vor discuta cu reprezentantii Estoniei probleme legate de brexit, securitatea frontierelor cu Rusia si introducerea tehnicii numerice in guvernare. Fiind la presedintie Estonia va lucra intens la problema brexitului, care nu este de loc usoara si care poate sa-i afecteze serios pe francezi . Problema securitatii granitelor Estoniei cu Rusia priveste direct si Franta : - Edouard Philippe va vizita o baza militara NATO, unde contingentul de soldati francezi este cel mai important : 300 militari. Baza a fost creata in 2014, cu ocazia anexarii regiunii Crimea de catre Moscova. - Edouard Philippe va vizita de asemenea un centru NATO de ciber-aparare, creat dupa ciber-atacul Rusiei asupra Estoniei in 2007.Am aflat in aceasta dimineata, prin emisiunea C’Est dans l’Air -TV 5 ,ca acest lucru survine dupa ce presedintele Emmanuel Macron a anuntat crearea celei de-a patra armata din Franta -ciber-armata. Ea va fi operationala atat in ciber-atacuri cat si in ciber-aparare. Armata va fi sprijinita de trei inele de suport : societatea civila, cu specialistii ei, informaticieni profesionisti si 6000 de studenti, special formati, care vor actiona numai in caz de atac major. In al treilea rand : Edouard Philippe este interesat in mod special de experienta Estoniei in e-administratie, fiind una din cele mai avansate tari din lume la acest capitol. Specificitatea Estoniei Am avut ocazia sa merg in Estonia, la Tallinn, in anul 2001. Trebuia sa pregatesc un raport de cercetare pentru Politica de tineret a Estoniei. La acea data, Estonia era tara cu una din cele mai educate populatii din Europa. Intre timp, lucrurile s-au amplificat. In acest moment, conform ultimei evaluari PISA / cea mai serioasa evaluare a sistemelor educationale mondiale- Estonia se afla pe locul trei in lume. Fabulos ! Am avut ocazia, de asemenea , sa admir inetelepciunea, calmul si echilibrul estonienilor. Pentru ei a fost o problema rationala selectia lucrurilor pe care le preiau de la ocupantii rusi. N-au aruncat tot. Ce a fost bun, au preluat. De exemplu, carti de pedagogie exemplare, bazate pe experimente stiintifice. Multele vase de razboi rusesti nu au fost topite cu obida, ci transformate in discoteci si hoteluri plutitoare. I-am admirat Am prezentat aceasta vizita pentru ca ar putea fi o pilda, si pentru noi, romanii, a manierei inteligente de a ne plasa pe fluxurile esentiale ale lumii de astazi. Desigur, daca cumva ne mai intereseaza acest lucru. citeste in continuare

          John Caulfield delights as Cork City off to Euro flyer   

LEVADIA TALLINN 0 - 2 CORK CITY: John Caulfield hailed his side’s clinical away performance as their two-goal Europa League first qualifying round first leg win in Estonia last night leaves the second leg close to a formality.


          Muguruza contra Alexandrova y Carla Suárez contra Bouchard   

Garbiñe Muguruza se enfrentará contra la rusa Ekaterina Alexandrova, 78 del mundo, y Carla Suárez contra la canadiense Eugenie Bouchard, finalista en Wimbledon en 2014 y 61 del mundo, en la primera ronda de este Grand Slam, tras el sorteo realizado hoy en Londres.

Muguruza contra Alexandrova y Carla Suárez contra Bouchard

Muguruza, finalista en el All England hace dos años, figura como 14 cabeza de serie, y Suárez la 25. Son las dos únicas españolas preclasificadas este año, en un cuadro que también incluye a Sara Sorribes y Lara Arruabarrena, que han quedado emparejadas con la japonesa Naomi Osaka y la estonia Anett Kontaveit, respectivamente.

Será el primer enfrentamiento entre Muguruza y Alexandrova, mientras que Carla y Bouchard, se han enfrentado ya en tres ocasiones, con 2-1 para la española. En Wimbledon 2013 Carla se impuso en dieciseisavos (7-5 y 6-2). Luego, Bouchard doblegó a la canaria en Roland Garros 2014, y en el último, en Roma 2015, Carla volvió a ganar.

Sorribes ha vencido a Osaka en el único enfrentamiento entre ambas, en Monterrey este año, y será el primer duelo entre Kontaveitt, que ha ganado este año su primer torneo en la hierba de Hertogenbosch, y Arruabarrena.

En el potencial camino de Muguruza figura la holandesa Kiki Bertens (23) en tercera ronda, y en octavos la alemana Angelique Kerber (1). De avanzar Carla podría verse las caras con la rumana Simona Halep, segunda favorita y reciente finalista en Roland Garros.

Ante la ausencia de la estadounidense Serena Williams, defensora del título, será Kerber la que abra la pista central el martes. La alemana comienza con una jugadora procedente de la fase previa, en una parte del cuadro en la que comparte zona con la checa Lucie Safarova

La checa Petra Kvitova, undécima favorita, dos veces campeona y que prácticamente acaba de regresar al circuito después de seis meses de alejamiento tras ser atacada por un individuo en su alojamiento en Prostejov, ganando el torneo de Birmingham, abre su participación con la Johanna Larsson, 52 del mundo.

En un teórico enfrentamiento de octavos, Kvitova podría enfrentarse contra la británica Johanna Konta, que acaba de retirarse de las semifinales de Eastbourne, por un problema en el cuello, tras sufrir una caída el jueves.

La británica, sexta favorita, comienza con la taiwanesa Su-Wei Hsieh, 31 del mundo. Si se da el duelo Kvitova-Konta, la ganadora podría medirse con Halep, semifinalista en 2014, en cuartos.

Halep es la segunda cabeza de serie, y comienza con una jugadora de la fase previa, y en su camino podría cruzarse la británica Laura Robson.

Muchas de las miradas estarán puestas en la letona Jelena Ostapenko, reciente ganadora en Roland Garros, que alcanzó la segunda ronda de Wimbledon hace dos años, y que comenzará con la bielorrusa Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 87 del mundo.

La estadounidense Venus Williams, la más veterana de todas las participantes, con 37 años, cinco veces ganadora, se medirá con la belga de 21 años, Elise Mertens. Venus acude a Wimbledon tras conocerse que está involucrada en un accidente de tráfico el 9 de junio en Palm Beach Gardens (Miami) en el que falleció el pasajero de otro vehículo.

La checa Karolina Pliskova (3), finalista en el Abierto de EE.UU. el año pasado, abre contra la rusa Evgeniya Rodina, y la ucraniana Elina Svitolina (4) lo hará contra la australiana Ashleigh Barty.

- Potenciales cuartos de final:

Angelique Kerber (ALE, 1) -- Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS, 7)
Karolina Pliskova (RCH, 3) -- Caroline Wozniacki (DIN, 5)
Dominika Cibulkova (SVK, 8) -- Elina Svitolina (UKR, 4)
Johanna Konta (GBR, 6) -- Simona Halep (RUM, 2)

- Enfrentamientos de españolas

Garbiñe Muguruza (14) -- Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS)
Lara Arruabarrena -- Anett Kontaveit (LET)
Carla Suárez (25) -- Eugenie Bouchard (CAN)
Sara Sorribes -- Naomi Osaka (JAP). EFE

          Finland joins UK’s Joint Expeditionary Force   

Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö inked the deal making Finland a member of the UK’s Joint Expeditionary Force on Friday.

Niinistö formalised the arrangement in Stockholm, where Sweden also signed up for the multinational force.

The aim of the JEF is to develop rapid reaction military performance. Other current members are Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Norway — all NATO members.

The UK invited Finland to join the group in February this year. At the time the Finnish Defence Forces said that the collaboration would not involve any new hardware purchases, since the JEF seeks to use and develop existing assets.

The JEF is not staffed by permanent troops. Rather, members contribute resources during crisis situations.

          La era del dinero barato se acaba ¿es el fin del mercado alcista?   
Las bolsas europeas extendieron las caídas de ayer y cierran una semana con descensos en torno al 3 por ciento ante las señales que apuntan a que los principales bancos centrales van a poner punto final a la era del dinero barato.
El Euro Stoxx 50 se deja un 0,88 por ciento a 3.440,86 y el Ibex 35 un 0,82 por ciento a 10.444,5.
Los datos de inflación de la zona euro mostraron que la desaceleración fue menor de lo esperado, pero los inversores siguieron vendiendo los bonos gubernamentales y los inversores salían de los sectores más sensibles a las subidas de tasas.
Las acciones tecnológicas se situaron entre las más fuertes en Europa el viernes, después de un débil desempeño en Wall Street en la sesión anterior.
El índice paneuropeo Stoxx ha bajado un 3 por ciento en junio, tras cuatro meses seguidos de subidas debido a la relajación de las preocupaciones políticas en la zona euro y el avivamiento de las perspectivas económicas.
Pero las observaciones de los bancos centrales esta semana que impulsaron los rendimientos de los bonos y el euro generaron una amplia venta, con las acciones que se benefician de tasas más bajas y las empresas orientadas a la exportación particularmente afectadas.
Los rendimientos globales de los bonos del Estado, que se mueven inversamente a los precios, y el euro ascendieron, poniendo presión sobre el dólar estadounidense tras las declaraciones del presidente del Banco Central Europeo Mario Draghi, cuyas observaciones fueron tomadas como sugerencia de que el BCE podría inclinarse a reducir su balance a medida que el crecimiento europeo se acelera. Esos comentarios fueron seguidos por enunciados igualmente optimistas del Banco de Inglaterra Gobernador Mark Carney
Combinado con las expectativas de que el Banco de Japón puede estar en una pauta similar, un esfuerzo mundial para normalizar la política monetaria elimina una red de seguridad que ha apoyado consistentemente este mercado alcista y viene en medio de crecientes preocupaciones que sugieren que la agenda de crecimiento de Trump no será una realidad en el corto plazo.
Los rendimientos de los bonos a largo plazo se anotaron sus mayores ganancias semanales desde el 3 de marzo, según WSJ Market Data Group. En otras palabras, los precios de los bonos se estaban estrellando. El bono a 10 años de EEUU, subió un 2,29%, un alza de unos 14 puntos básicos en la semana, mientras que el bono a 30 años también coquetea con su mayor subida desde marzo, ha subido más de 11 puntos básicos esta semana.
El rendimiento de los bonos a 10 años de referencia de Alemania se encamina el viernes a su mayor subida semanal desde diciembre de 2015, ya que los inversores se preparan para el fin de la era de la política monetaria ultra-laxa.
Los rendimientos de los bonos en Alemania, Francia e Italia alcanzaron nuevos máximos, aunque el tono fue generalmente más tranquilo al final de una semana que ha tenido fuertes ventas en los mercados de deuda global.
Los rendimientos del Bund a 10 años aumentaron 2 puntos básicos, hasta el 0,47 por ciento, su nivel más alto desde el 21 de marzo.
Eso los dejó con una subida de 22 puntos básicos en la semana y el mayor avance semanal desde diciembre de 2015.
Los rendimientos de los bonos franceses e italianos a 10 años alcanzaron máximos de varias semanas y camino de sus mayores aumentos semanales desde noviembre, subiendo más de 20 puntos básicos cada uno.
La rentabilidad del bono español a 10 años se mantiene plano en el 1,53 por ciento, máximos desde principios de junio.
Las empresas de productos químicos lideraron las pérdidas el viernes, bajando un 1,3 por ciento, tras noticias de resultados empresariales. Bayer se desplomó más de un 5 por ciento después de que el fabricante alemán de medicamentos y plaguicidas redujera su pronóstico para 2017. La compañía dijo que tendría que ajustar sus ganancias como resultado de las perspectivas de ingresos negativos derivados de su negocio brasileño de ciencia de cultivos.
El gobernador del Banco de Inglaterra, Mark Carney, sorprendió a muchos inversores el miércoles, cuando dijo que el banco central de Estados Unidos podría verse obligado a subir las tasas de interés, ya que la economía estaba a punto de funcionar a plena capacidad. La libra esterlina bajó el viernes un 0,13 por ciento a 1,2988 dólares, luego de una ganancia del 0,6 por ciento en la sesión anterior.
La presidencia semestral de Malta del Consejo de la Unión Europea finalizará el viernes con Estonia a punto de asumir el poder el 1 de julio. El Reino Unido se ha posicionado para seguir a Malta, sin embargo, el primer ministro Theresa May anunció en julio de 2016 - poco después de la votación de Gran Bretaña para abandonar la UE - que el país no la asumiría.
Mientras tanto, en los EE.UU., los mercados comenzaron el último día de negociación del mes con moderadas subidas en torno al 0,2 por ciento, ya que los bancos extendieron las fuertes ganancias de esta semana.
Wall Street está en camino de registrar ganancias en el segundo trimestre, que termina hoy viernes. La sesión también marcará el cierre del mes de junio y la primera mitad del año.
"Estamos cautelosamente optimistas sobre las perspectivas de las acciones de Estados Unidos, pero las expectativas de crecimiento de ganancias del S&P 500 ya parecen altas y no es probable que sean revisadas al alza, a menos que haya progreso con el estímulo fiscal a nivel interno (por ejemplo, reforma tributaria)", escribió Joyce Chang, jefe global de investigación de JP Morgan.
La semana que viene, el comercio de acciones será más corto por el festivo del Día de la Independencia el martes.
Los precios del petróleo subieron por séptima sesión consecutiva el viernes, gracias a un dólar estadounidense más débil, en su carrera alcista más larga desde abril, pero todavía van camino de su peor primer semestre desde 1998.
Las preocupaciones persistentes sobre la sobreoferta han derrumbado un 16 por ciento el precio del crudo Brent en lo que va del año, a pesar de un acuerdo entre miembros de la OPEP y algunos otros grandes productores para reducir la producción en cerca de 1,8 millones de barriles diarios (bpd).
Los futuros de crudo Brent de referencia suben un punto porcentual a 48,12 dólares el barril a las 1216 GMT. Los futuros del crudo WTI avanza un 1,1 por ciento a 45,45 dólares.

Dreams of a gender-neutral O Canada are over — for now-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

Canadians will not be singing a gender-neutral national anthem on Canada Day after a bill before Parliament to officially change the lyrics has stalled.The House of Commons overwhelmingly passed a private member's bill last summer that would alter the national anthem by replacing "in all thy sons command" with "in all of us command" as part of a push to strike gendered language from O Canada.Although the bill sailed through the House with government approval, Conservative senators opposed to the changes have scored a victory in the Red Chamber. A yearlong campaign successfully punted a vote on the bill until the fall, at the earliest, and even then the legislation faces an uncertain future."I'm trying to protect the tradition rather than, you know, water it down with a politically correct version that is historically inaccurate," Conservative Senator David Wells said in an interview with CBC News on Tuesday."I don't misrepresent why I'm [using parliamentary stall tactics] … I don't like this bill, and I will do what I can to ensure it doesn't pass."Wells and a number of other senators have said they oppose efforts to tinker with the lyrics written by a man long dead.(The lyrics have been changed since they were first penned by Robert Stanley Weir in 1908, but not since O Canada officially became the country's national anthem in 1980.) The late Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger introduced the bill, and many MPs backed the legislation as a salute to a colleague on his death bed."The bill was passed in the House compassionately and out of sadness for a dying colleague. While that is touching, it is not the way we make public policy in this country and it is not the way we do our legislation," Ontario Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak said.A flurry of amendments were introduced to the bill in the last few weeks of the parliamentary sitting — all failed to pass in the face of opposition from most Liberal and Independent senators — which dragged out debate considerably. Parliament rose for summer break before a final vote at third reading could be held.Ramona Lumpkin, the chancellor of Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, and a strong proponent of the bill, said she was deeply disappointed by the developments."We're so close and I really regret that there are a few senators who seem to have dug in and decided to delay. I hope it's not a permanent block," said Lumpkin, in an interview with CBC News."It's not as if the words were brought down from Mount Sinai on stone tablets like the Ten Commandments, they are words created by humans and subject to change as our social and cultural conditions change, and thank goodness they do," she said.Wells said national symbols cannot be altered to simply adhere to the "flavour of the day." He said Canadians were not consulted by the government and that there hasn't been an adequate conversation about a fairly significant change."I'll be working my hardest to delay this bill until there's a full debate," he said. "I get a lot of emails, and many comments to me personally, from people who don't want to see the anthem change, who see it as a part of our tradition and who see this attempt to change it as political correctness run amok. It is a slippery slope. Calls for inclusion will always be there, but my belief is all Canadians are already included in the national anthem."He said pictures adorning the walls of the Senate depict men in combat during the First World War. "Would we now airbrush females into those pictures to accurately reflect what it might be today with those pieces of Canadians' history? My answer is no, that would be an abomination, and I think that's what it is with the anthem as well."If the bill is amended in the Senate it would be sent back to the House for another vote. As per parliamentary rules, because Bélanger is dead, MPs will have to unanimously agree to replace him as sponsor or the bill drops from the order paper; that is unlikely given entrenched opposition from some corners of the chamber."That worries me," Lumpkin said. "I know language matters and I talk to students and young women regularly who still feel their voice doesn't carry as strong as the voice of their male friends. I think the gesture, even though it's symbolic, would say a lot to those young women."The Liberal government could also choose to introduce legislation of its own — with the same wording — to avoid some of the problems that often befall private member's bills; namely, the government could invoke time allocation to prevent procedural time delays.

Opinion-G20 is 'test run' for Trump-era climate governance By Simon Schunz-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 09:06-Weeks after US president Donald Trump announced the US' withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, the debate is still raging on in regard to the possible implications of his decision.Some fear a global domino effect, with more countries renouncing climate protection pledges and ceasing domestic emission reduction efforts.Others argue that the Paris accord's architecture is sufficiently resilient, and that efforts to keep global temperature increases to "well below 2°C" – as stipulated by the agreement – will endure.Activities at the sub-national level in the US also seem to support the argument that the agreement will prevail and domestic opponents of Trump’s decision have mobilised remarkably quickly.Cities and states with progressive climate policies joined forces across the US, committing themselves to honouring the Paris agreement.For instance, support came via the bipartisan "US Climate Alliance" of states – including heavyweights such as California and New York – and the "We Are Still In" initiative, which involves hundreds of businesses, investors, and institutes of higher education.Moreover, these sub-national players are linking up with leading nations to create innovative climate diplomacy networks: California and China have held talks to collaborate on emission reduction efforts, while several US states have intensified climate cooperation with Canada.Though these developments enhance the Paris agreement’s chances of survival, they will not be enough.Fight for survival-The resilience of the agreement hinges on how other major emitters will react to Trump’s break.To pursue effective global climate governance, these countries must repeat the steps taken in the run-up to the 2015 Paris climate meeting, where a strategy of "multiple bilateralism" between US-China, China-India and China-EU (among others) served to build trust and resolve crunch issues.The emerging consensus among key emitters was translated into cooperation in the world’s club governance fora (G7, G20) and fed into the multilateral negotiations, leading to the Paris agreement’s ultimate entry into force.True to this spirit, six members (plus the EU) were already pressuring the US to remain committed to the Paris agreement at the recent G7 summit in Sicily. Not that it seemed to do much good, as Trump withdrew from the climate pact a few days later.The next litmus test for effective global climate governance comes in July, when leaders from countries accounting for 80% of global emissions meet for the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on 7-8 July.With the US thrusting itself into isolation, the German G20 presidency will seek to gather the broadest possible support for the Paris agreement.But a question remains: is a G20 entente possible? It might be, if others show the way.Climate leaders-From the G7, the EU and Canada display the clearest leadership ambitions.EU heavyweights have signalled their "strongest commitment" to uphold their pledges to combat climate change.In his reaction to Trump’s Paris exit, Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, confirmed his country's "unwavering commitment to fight climate change".The Canadian government has also vehemently denied recent reports that Trudeau wished to scrap references to climate from the draft G20 declaration, in order to appease the US government.But leaders need followers. And whether followers can be mobilised depends on how G20 members define their interests – economically and politically.Economically, many G20 countries appear to believe the energy transition – accelerated by the Paris Agreement – must continue.Investing in low-carbon development is no longer seen as a burden on growth prospects. If anything, there is a growing consensus that Trump’s decision will put the US at risk of lagging behind technologically.Politically, the relationship between G20 countries and the US (particularly the Trump administration) is tricky.Are countries like Australia, Japan, Turkey and the UK willing to risk relations with the president of a key ally by adopting a confrontational attitude over climate change? The answer depends heavily on whether the German G20 presidency can dispel their concerns by convincingly demonstrating that the world is changing – because it is.-Changing world-At an EU-China summit the day after Trump’s announcement, a draft joint declaration on climate change characterised the Paris Agreement as “an historic achievement further accelerating the irreversible global low greenhouse gas emission and climate resilient development” and outlined numerous joint actions.Although it was ultimately withheld due to trade-related differences, this declaration contains the blueprint for a shifting centre of gravity in global climate governance to Eurasia.If supported by India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, who has reiterated support for the Paris Agreement, a solid pro-climate coalition including three of the world’s top four emitters would emerge.Cooperation with Canada, and with the sub-national forces in the US, could then provide additional momentum to convince other G20 members.As a major guiding forum, the G20 represents a test run for the future of global climate governance during the Trump era.The direction this governance will take, depends heavily on the strength of emerging partnerships, and their ability to convince others to join them regardless of US policies.If the will is robust enough, this "multiple bilateralism" could bring about the dawn of a new era, and the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement.If it fails, however, global climate politics faces a complicated, daunting future.Dr Simon Schunz is a Research Fellow at the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), and a professor of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe in Bruges.

Opinion-EU parliament should befriend transparency By Sylvie GUILLAUME and Danuta HUEBNER-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 17:24-A few days ago, an NGO representative expressed her concerns about the way the European Parliament was dealing with the European Commission’s proposal for a revised inter-institutional agreement on a “mandatory transparency register”.The proposal was submitted by the EU commission on 28 September 2016 and aimed at including the Council of the EU, where representatives of member states sit, as a new partner within the framework.Following the commission's proposal, the EU parliament’s Conference of Presidents entrusted us, as the responsible lead negotiators - supported by a contact group composed of one MEP from each political group - with developing a draft negotiating mandate.We organised five contact group meetings, where detailed discussions provided the opportunity for all political groups to give their input and ideas. It led to the endorsement of a balanced text on 11 April this year.We enriched our deliberations by means of a half-day meeting between the contact group and the involved NGO representatives - including Nina Katzemich from the website LobbyControl, and others from organisations such as Transparency International, Civil Society Europe and Corporate Europe Observatory.We listened carefully to their concerns, many of which we had already incorporated into our work, such as the necessity to enlarge the definition of lobbying and to include an independent observer in the management structure of the transparency register.We also discussed how we to pursue the negotiations with the EU commission and the council in order to get those concerns taken on board.Instead of the expected swift adoption of the mandate, which would signal the parliament’s readiness to enter into negotiations, we were deeply troubled to find that the item had been taken off the agenda of the Conference of Presidents on successive occasions.-Horse-trading-It appeared that some MEPs used procedural manoeuvres and political horse-trading to achieve repeated postponements of the adoption of the mandate, even though a large majority in parliament supported its content.It seems that it is sometimes those who believe themselves to be on the path of righteousness, who are most willing to misuse our system of procedures to score cheap political points.We found it disturbing that some wilfully ignored parliament’s power to determine its own internal organisation.It has also saddened us to see that some of those who claim to be at the forefront of stemming the tide of populism, do not seem to mind riding on that very same tide when it serves their own political ends.However, we were glad to see that the Conference of Presidents finally adopted the mandate two weeks ago on 15 June, in the very same form that had been proposed by the contact group.Following its adoption, the mandate was immediately published on the EU parliament’s website.Regarding the free and independent mandate of MEPs - enshrined in EU primary law - it is noteworthy that the independence of elected representatives is a cornerstone of a representative democracy and a principle this is not easily dismissed.Therefore, any limitation on MEPs in the exercise of their free mandate must be proportionate and cannot, for example, unduly restrict his or her right to seek information.Moreover, a principle enshrined in primary law cannot be altered by secondary law, let alone by an inter-institutional agreement.The mandate adopted on 15 June is based on a long line of parliament’s decisions regarding its relations with interest representatives.It reflects the position of a broad majority of MEPs and it constitutes a solid base for negotiations on a significant improvement to the current transparency register and a widening of its scope.-Negotiating framework-The mandate should be understood as a framework for the negotiations.Parliament’s position will continue to be adapted as the negotiations progress. Once the negotiations are concluded, parliament will adopt follow-up decisions with respect to its internal organisation, in order to implement the new inter‑institutional agreement.But the European Parliament still remains committed to pushing for a transparency regulation that would go beyond an inter-institutional agreement and lay down the relevant provisions on transparency and the register in secondary law.One should not forget the progress that parliament has achieved so far in this field. It initiated the Transparency Register as early as 1996, as well as a Code of Conduct with a commitment for registered lobbyists to act in accordance with high ethical standards.Parliament is, and remains, the most open EU institution, which can be seen with the web-streaming of its meetings and the ability for citizens to visit all of its buildings.Furthermore, parliament decided that registration on the transparency register was to be made a requirement to be invited as a speaker at committee hearings and to receive a long-term access badge for its premises.It also put in place a voluntary legislative footprint last year, and it encourages its MEPs to meet only with registered organisations.Katzemich considers the EU commission to have made a big step in 2015 by publishing meetings of commissioners, heads of cabinets and directors‑general.Certainly, this is true. However, this measure was decided by the commission with a view to its own internal organisation and cannot be easily translated to other institutions such as EU parliament or the council, both of which have a different set-up.Furthermore, the commission’s system is not without its flaws and has room for improvement, as Transparency International and other organisations regularly report.As the EU parliament's lead negotiators, we are particularly committed to getting the council on board and to adding significant value compared to the current framework.Three principles-A new register should encompass the following three principles.First, the widest possible scope of application for EU institutions and other bodies, including meaningful participation of the council.Next, a comprehensive and clear framework, without weakening the current system, for the regulation of interest representation activities.Finally, structures and resources that guarantee effective implementation.One of the main issues is that the new inter-institutional agreement provides a framework for coordination among the EU institutions, while at the same time fully respecting their different competences and prerogatives.-The mandate-The approach we have developed in our mandate would allow for:- The full respect of MEPs' independent mandate.- An inclusive transparency policy for all types of interest representative, as with the current register that features over 11200 registered interest groups from all over the world.- The possibility to maintain the wider definition of lobbying, covering both direct and indirect interest representation (as with the current system).- The full respect for each institutions’ needs, e.g. in the case of parliament as an open house but also with the need to know, for security reasons, who is coming in and why.- More flexibility in respect to the EU institutions’ roles and structures (parliament cannot simply duplicate rules that were designed for the commission).- Better quality information on the database – making the register more reliable as a source of information for the institutions themselves and for the general public.The quality of the new system will depend on how far the council can be convinced to match the parliament’s and commission’s commitment to transparency.We would therefore advise to look at the whole picture and analyse the situation comprehensively, especially with a view to scrutinising the council’s approach.It takes time to change long-standing practices, but we are fully committed to forge ahead, knowing that a pragmatic and constructive approach will yield the best results.Transparency certainly is one important aspect of ensuring citizens’ trust in the EU institutions. But it is not the only one. Keeping true to the facts is another.Sylvie Guillaume is a vice-president of the European Parliament, and Danuta Huebner is the chair of the constitutional affairs committee-Correction: The article's footnote originally said that Danuta Huebner is the chair of the foreign affairs committee, when in fact, she is the chair of the constitutional affairs committee

EU Commission could get say on Russia gas pipeline By Andrew Rettman-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 09:29-EU states have given initial backing for the European Commission to negotiate the legal model of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline with Russia.Pablo Micallef, a spokesman for the Maltese EU presidency, told EUobserver that “some 13” member states spoke out on the plan when EU energy ministers met for informal talks in Brussels on Monday.The incoming Estonian EU presidency is now expected to convene a working group to take things forward.The Danish energy minister, Lars Christian Lilleholt, who was among the 13 EU backers, said: “I’m very satisfied. It was the best thing that could have come out of the meeting”.The mandate will have to be formally approved later down the line in a “reinforced qualified majority” vote by member states, a higher than usual threshold of 72 percent of EU countries representing 65 percent of its population.Maros Sefcovic, the EU energy commissioner who drafted the proposal, told the Reuters news agency: “I’m definitely optimistic about getting the [formal] mandate, but I know this is just the beginning of the debate."Nord Stream 2 is to concentrate 70 percent of Russian gas supplies to Europe in one route to Germany under the Baltic Sea.But its critics, which include the Nordic states, the Baltic countries, Poland, and the US, say it would harm EU energy security and undermine Ukraine, a Western ally, by making Ukraine’s transit pipes obsolete.-EU laws-Anna-Kaisa Itkonen, the Commission’s energy spokeswoman, told EUobserver on Tuesday that the Commission wanted to talk to Russia on whether the offshore part of Nord Stream 2 should be covered by the EU’s so-called third energy package.That EU law would oblige Russian state firm Gazprom to open up its Nord Stream 2 monopoly to EU competitors - a demand which led Russia to stop a previous project, the South Stream pipeline under the Black Sea to Bulgaria.But Itkonen said the talks would “not [be] about a [Commission] veto, it is not about the future of the pipeline, not about the Commission approving it or not”.She said the Commission-Russia talks would be designed to give “legal certainty” on Nord Stream 2 and that they would be “nothing spectacular or extraordinary” because EU officials had held similar discussions with “third countries” on other projects.The Nord Stream 2 regulatory framework is currently being negotiated between Germany and Russia.German, Austrian, French, and Anglo-Dutch firms - Uniper, Wintershall, OMV, Engie, and Shell - are to take part in the project, with Germany and Austria keen to press ahead.Neither the German nor the Austrian minister spoke out on Monday, EU sources told Reuters, but Germany and Austria recently attacked the US over its threat to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2 investors.“We decide who supplies us with energy and how they do it”, the German and Austrian foreign ministers said in a joint statement on 15 June.-Ukraine unhappy-Pavlo Klimkin, the Ukrainian foreign minister, told Reuters in Paris on Monday that Nord Stream 2 "would have disastrous consequences for the energy security of the European Union and would make the EU dependent on one source.""Maybe some companies will benefit for the time being, but in the long-run it will lead nowhere”, he said.He added that there was no progress on Russia ending hostilities in east Ukraine."How can you trust Russia in setting up a unique source of gas supply?”, he said, referring to broader EU and US concerns over Russia’s aggressive behaviour toward neighbouring states.

Focus-Nordics consider alternative to EU emissions trading system By Lisbeth Kirk-june 28,17-euobserver

Copenhagen, Today, 07:44-If the European emissions trading system is not reformed to work efficiently, a Nordic carbon price floor could be introduced to secure future green investments in the region, according to a new strategic review of energy co-operation by the Nordic Council.The plan, which has been in preparation for over a year, is penned by Finnish businessman Jorma Ollila, who had formerly chaired Royal Dutch Shell for almost ten years and was the chairman and CEO of Nokia.It comes at a crucial time, just as the final talks on reforming the EU's carbon trading scheme are due to take place in Brussels.On Tuesday (27 June), representatives of the EU member states, the European Parliament and the European Commission met for one of the final meetings on how the EU’s flagship climate instrument – the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) – should look in the 2021-2030 period.But before the real talks have even started, hopes of reforming the EU system to work efficiently are fading.”I think everyone realises that this is not enough. The [EU] proposal will not deliver a carbon price that we need to decarbonise the industry sectors,” said Femke de Jong, EU policy director for Carbon Market Watch.Her organisation brings together more than 800 NGOs and academics from 70 different countries, working to make the carbon market “an effective climate mitigation tool.””I think it is only logical to have a debate on how we can complement the system. A carbon floor price – at least at the regional level – seems a realistic option,” de Jong said.-Nordic energy union-Norway and Sweden are strong on hydropower, Norway produces oil and gas, Denmark has wind, while Finland and Sweden have built nuclear plants and are pushing for more bio-fuels as a future energy resource.Some 20 years ago, these countries decided to connect their national electricity grids with water reservoirs, allowing hydropower to serve as a kind of Nordic battery to compensate for periods without wind, for example.”There were significant benefits, welfare benefits, lower electricity prices and easier management of the generation of electricity in tough times or during high peak demand in winter times,” Ollila pointed out.This Nordic solution, Ollila said, has been "managed historically very well". He added that since the EU is looking into different prospects for the energy union, there is an opportunity to learn from "what has been done in Nordic countries over the past 20 years."In addition to Nordic carbon trade, Ollila also suggested a Nordic export strategy for green energy solutions, alignment of research and using the whole Nordic area as a testbed.Nuuk in Greenland has been suggested to become a testbed for the full deployment of electric vehicles, and Reykjavik in Iceland may become a testing ground for infrastructure and systems that can support electrification of visiting cruise and fishing ships.The Faroe Islands may become the place for the development of battery technology and energy storage.-Green transition and growth-Put together, the Nordic region today is one of the 12 largest economies in the world and it is already living proof that the green transition is not incompatible with economic growth.However, the Nordics must become even greener to complete their transition into renewable energy, the Nordic Council report said."The energy transition is already underway – but if the Nordic countries do not participate to the fullest, the jobs will be created elsewhere," warned Jorma Ollila."The renewables will take off faster than what was thought only five years ago. So, the role of the renewables will grow quite significantly," he added."The focus should be on securing the most efficient green transition. If the ETS does not provide this, it may be relevant and timely to discuss a joint Nordic approach to support the schemes for renewable energy," Ollila's report concluded.”Another approach could be to discuss the introduction of a Nordic carbon price, based on the United Kingdom’s carbon price floor, in order to secure stronger incentives for the green transition,” it said.-UK leads the way-The prospect of a regionalised European carbon trading system in the future is not limited to the Nordic area. For instance, the UK already introduced a carbon price floor in 2013.”So far, the only country in Europe that has a carbon floor price is the UK. There it was very effective. They introduced a carbon floor price in 2013 and it has resulted in UK coal emissions falling by almost 60% last year," Femke de Jong said, adding: "So it is really significant."She goes on to say that: "It can be a very effective instrument to – at least in the intermediate time – to make sure that the carbon price reflects the damage cost of the pollution to the society.”Under the UK carbon floor price system, carbon emission prices rise automatically – currently at 18 pounds sterling (€20) from 2016 to 2020.Currently the carbon price in Europe stands at €5, but it should rise to €40 to meet the objectives of the Paris climate agreement and rise further to €100 in 2030.-Regional carbon trade-”Ideally, this should be solved at the EU level, but if this is not possible in the short-term, it makes sense to go for a regional solution,” de Jong said.”France has been pushing for it very much in the past and we think that now, with Macron [as president of France], he will also push for that," she added."Let's see," she said, "maybe after the German elections, there can also be a regional carbon price in Western Europe – with Germany, maybe Belgium, the Netherlands and France."Linking the Nordic carbon trade to the British system might be made complicated by the Brexit process, however.”I think it might be tricky for the Nordic countries to join the UK system,” said de Jong.”It is still an open question if the UK will withdraw from the ETS or not. Maybe it is also an idea to team up more with other countries that are contemplating this,” she suggested.

Luxembourg not a tax haven, claims PM By Nikolaj Nielsen-june 28,17-euobserver

Luxembourg, Today, 08:42-Luxembourg continues to refute any notion that it is a tax haven, despite widespread evidence of dubious schemes that it cuts global tax bills for big firms."We were never a tax haven," Luxembourg's prime minister, Xavier Bettel, told EUobserver on Tuesday (27 June).Bettel's comments follow a grilling of Luxembourg's former prime minister and current European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker. Juncker in late May told the European Parliament that he was unable to explain why the Grand Duchy "didn't want to remove tax secrecy."But Bettel, who was fielding a wide range of questions from reporters at an event hosted by the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg, defended the country's tax policies by saying it was one of the first places to push transparency and the exchange of tax rulings with other member states."It is important for me that we have common rules and Luxembourg was one of the first one for transparency," he said.Luxembourg was rocked by scandal following media revelations in late 2014 that exposed how nearly 340 companies secured secret deals that shaved billions of euros from taxes, which were due to be paid elsewhere.The revelations ushered in a raft of new EU and national legislation to increase tax transparency and weed out abuse.The scandal also triggered a probe by the European Parliament, which slammed Luxembourg for allowing corporations to dodge "tax that could have been used to build schools, hospitals or pay down national debt."A report by the Brussels-based NGO, Eurodad, had also revealed last December that Luxembourg had in fact increased the number of so-called tax rulings in the wake of the 2014 media revelations by some 50 percent.The issue saw former PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) employee Antoine Deltour face prison time for leaking the secret rules to the media, posing larger questions on whistleblower protection laws.But Bettel maintained that his country was fully compliant with tax standards and had not committed a crime."There are over 20 countries in Europe doing [tax] rulings," he noted, echoing a similar refrain to his predecessor, Juncker.Luxembourg, under Juncker's decade-long leadership of the country, had also repeatedly blocked the rolling back of aggressive tax planning schemes throughout the EU, according to a cache of German cables leaked earlier this year.Bettel also opposes any pan-EU taxation system and refuses to impose any sort of tax on financial transactions.The financial transaction tax, also known as the FTT, aims to raise money for the public good by imposing a 0.1 percent tax on shares and bonds, and 0.01 percent on derivative products."I am fully against and I will block that," said Bettel. But he noted that other member states are free to move ahead on the file as part of a two-speed Europe.He also added that people in Luxembourg should not have to pay more tax only "because other countries were not responsible with public finances."

New cyberattack wallops Europe; spreads more slowly in US-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

PARIS — A new and highly virulent outbreak of data-scrambling software — apparently sown in Ukraine — caused disruption across the world Tuesday. Following a similar attack in May , the fresh cyber-assault paralyzed some hospitals, government offices and major multinational corporations in a dramatic demonstration of how easily malicious programs can bring daily life to a halt.Ukraine and Russia appeared hardest hit by the new strain of ransomware — malicious software that locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release. In the United States, the malware affected companies such as the drugmaker Merck and Mondelez International, the owner of food brands such as Oreo and Nabisco.Its pace appeared to slow as the day wore on, in part because the malware appeared to require direct contact between computer networks, a factor that may have limited its spread in regions with fewer connections to Ukraine.The malware's origins remain unclear. Researchers picking the program apart found evidence its creators had borrowed from leaked National Security Agency code, raising the possibility that the digital havoc had spread using U.S. taxpayer-funded tools."The virus is spreading all over Europe and I'm afraid it can harm the whole world," said Victor Zhora, the chief executive of Infosafe IT in Kyiv , where reports of the malicious software first emerged early afternoon local time Tuesday.In Ukraine, victims included top-level government offices, where officials posted photos of darkened computer screens, as well as energy companies, banks, cash machines, gas stations, and supermarkets. Ukrainian Railways and the communications company Ukrtelecom were among major enterprises hit, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said in a Facebook post .The virus hit the radiation-monitoring at Ukraine's shuttered Chornobyl power plant, site of the world's worst nuclear accident, forcing it into manual operation.Multinational companies, including the global law firm DLA Piper and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk were also affected, although the firms didn't specify the extent of the damage.Ukraine bore the brunt with more than 60 per cent of the attacks, followed by Russia with more than 30 per cent , according to initial findings by researchers at the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab. It listed Poland, Italy and Germany, in that order, as the next-worst affected.In the U.S, two hospitals in western Pennsylvania were hit; patients reported on social media that some surgeries had to be rescheduled. A spokeswoman for Heritage Valley Health System would say only that operational changes had to be made. A Wellsville, Ohio, woman at one of its hospitals to have her gallbladder removed said she noticed computer monitors off and nurses scurrying around with stacks of paperwork.Security experts said Tuesday's global cyberattack shares something in common with last month's outbreak of ransomware, dubbed WannaCry . Both spread using digital lock picks originally created by the NSA and later published to the web by a still-mysterious group known as the Shadowbrokers.Security vendors including Bitdefender and Kaspersky said the NSA exploit, known as EternalBlue, lets malware spread rapidly across internal networks at companies and other large organizations. Microsoft issued a security fix in March, but Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at the security firm Veracode, said it would only be effective if every single computer on a network were patched — otherwise, a single infected machine could infect all others."Once activated, the virus can automatically and freely distribute itself on your network," Ukraine's cyberpolice tweeted.Bogdan Botezatu, an analyst with Bitdefender, compared such self-spreading software to a contagious disease. "It's like somebody sneezing into a train full of people," he said.Ryan Kalember, a security expert at Proofpoint, said one reason the attacks appeared to be slowing down was that the ransomware appears to spread only when a direct contact exists between two networks — such as when a global company's Ukraine office interacts with headquarters.But once it hits a computer on a network, it spreads quickly, even among computers that have applied the fix for the NSA exploit."It's more harmful to the organization that it affects, but because it's not randomly spreading over the internet like WannaCry, it's somewhat contained to the organizations that were connected to each other," Kalember said.Botezatu said the new program appeared nearly identical to GoldenEye, a variant of a known family of hostage-taking programs known as "Petya." It demanded $300 in Bitcoin.Unlike typical ransomware, which merely scrambles personal data files, the program wreaking havoc Tuesday overwrites a computer's master boot record, making it tougher to restore even a machine that has been backed up, said Kalember.It may have first spread through a rogue update to a piece of Ukrainian accounting software called MEDoc, according to tweets by the country's cyberpolice unit. It said a rogue update seeded the infection across Ukraine. In a lengthy statement posted to Facebook, MEDoc acknowledged having been hacked.The motives of those behind the malware remain unknown. Ukraine has been a persistent target of pro-Russian hackers, who are blamed for twice shutting down large swaths of its power grid in the dead of winter and sabotaging its elections system in a bid to disrupt May 2014 national elections.Emails sent Tuesday to an address posted to the bottom of ransom demands went unreturned. That might be because the email provider hosting that address, Berlin-based Posteo, pulled the plug on the account before the infection became widely known.In an email, a Posteo representative said it had blocked the email address "immediately" after learning that it was associated with ransomware. The company added that it was in contact with German authorities "to make sure that we react properly."___Bajak reported from Houston.

Trudeau appoints his first climate change ambassador with revamped mandate-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tapped a long-time Canadian diplomat to step into a revamped role of Canada's ambassador for climate change.Canada hasn't had such an ambassador since January 2015.Jennifer MacIntyre fills the role as of Tuesday, with a mandate to push Canada's international relationships on the climate change file, including promoting Canadian clean technology businesses abroad.She is the fifth person to hold the title of ambassador for climate change — but the first where the role is not the equivalent of Canada's chief negotiator for climate change treaties.As such she will not be on hand next week when Trudeau sits down with other G20 leaders in Germany where the Paris climate change agreement will be front and centre.Instead her role is to find ways for Canada to take advantage of any international opportunities for trade and investment that climate change policies bring.MacIntyre spent most of the last four years as the ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein.The Canadian Press.

NATO chief: US allies to spend $12 billion more this year-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

BRUSSELS — NATO's chief says U.S. allies are projected to spend around $12 billion more on defence this year, after President Donald Trump berated them for failing to boost military budgets.NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that "we have really shifted gears. The (spending) trend is up and we intend to keep it up."Unveiling new figures, Stoltenberg said European allies and Canada have increased spending by almost $46 billion over the last three years.He said 25 of NATO's 29 allies aim to raise defence spending in 2017.Only the United States, Britain, Estonia, debt-burden Greece and Poland met NATO's spending targets last year. Romania says it will meet the 2 per cent of GDP guideline this year, while Latvia and Lithuania plan to in 2018.The Associated Press.

Wind fans the flames of Utah fire that has burned 13 homes-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY — Firefighters are bracing for more high winds Wednesday as they try to slow a southern Utah wildfire that has burned 13 homes and forced the evacuation of 1,500 people.Firefighters are hoping to be able to put out hot spots on the southern end of the fire to allow residents to return to the ski town of Brian Head. Homes there have been evacuated since June 17 when authorities say it was started by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds on private land.The fire is the largest in the nation at 78 square miles (201 square kilometres ).The blaze is one of several in the West. Crews in California were making gains against two new fires that spread quickly, and firefighters in Idaho battled five lightning-sparked wildfires burning in grass and brush.

Trudeau touts open Canadian immigration system in face of Trump travel ban-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will continue to promote Canada's open immigration policy on the world stage as controversy rages over U.S. President Donald Trump's travel ban.Trudeau said Tuesday during a news conference in Ottawa to wrap up the parliamentary sitting that government officials have had "multiple conversations" with the U.S. administration about protecting Canadian rights in the face of immigration decisions south of the border."But at the same time, Canadians have been very clear that we see immigration as a net positive, that we know we don't have to compromise security to build stronger, more resilient communities," he said. "I will continue to stand for Canadian values and Canadian success in our immigration system as I always have, whether it's in Washington or in Hamburg next week or elsewhere around the world."On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a limited version of Trump's ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect.The justices will hear full arguments in October, but in the meantime, the court said Trump's ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could be enforced if those visitors lack a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."-Trudeau defends sniper role-In the wide-ranging news conference in the National Press Theatre, Trudeau was asked about topics ranging from trade concerns with the U.S. to recent news that a Canadian special forces member had shot and killed an ISIS fighter at a record distance for a sniper.Trudeau called the sniper actions "entirely consistent" with the role of troops in northern Iraq. The "advise and assist" mission has always had an element of defending Canadian forces as well as our coalition partners, he said."That is something that is integral to this mission, and that is something that has always been followed," he said.NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has said the incident suggests Canadian forces are actually involved in direct combat in Iraq, and has called on Trudeau to provide the public with more details on the role of the mission.Trudeau said the incident should be "celebrated" for demonstrating the excellence in training and performance of duties by the Canadian Forces.National Defence said the sniper, part of the Joint Task Force 2 special forces unit, was supporting Iraqi forces when he shot an enemy fighter from 3,540 metres away.That is more than a kilometre farther than the previous record, held by a British sniper who shot a Taliban fighter in Afghanistan in 2009.Trudeau also said he broke his key electoral promise to reform Canada's electoral system because there was no compromise from other parties, and he didn't want to use his Liberal majority to ram through fundamental change."There was no path to do that."-'No path' on electoral reform-Trudeau said Liberals preferred a ranked ballot system, while the NDP wanted a proportional voting system that would have led to "fragmented" parties.Conservatives wanted to keep the status quo, he said."It was a very difficult decision for me," Trudeau said in describing his decision to break the promise.Asked about when the government will eliminate the deficit, Trudeau said his government is targeting billions in new spending on infrastructure and other services Canadians need and will not put a timeframe on when it will "arbitrarily" balance the books.Trudeau also touted what he sees as the government's key accomplishments so far, namely helping improve the quality of life for the middle class and taking steps to tackle the opioid crisis before taking questions.The prime minister also reacted to a new round of anti-dumping tariffs imposed on Canada's softwood lumber industry by the U.S. Department of Commerce. He said he is focused on being "constructive" and working toward a deal that will help protect thousands of jobs in Canada.Earlier Tuesday, the prime minister issued a statement to mark Multiculturalism Day.'Differences make us strong'"Canadians come from every corner of the world, speak two official languages and hundreds more, practise many faiths, and represent many cultures," he said. "Multiculturalism is at the heart of Canada's heritage and identity, and as Canadians, we recognize that our differences make us strong."Canada's tradition of multiculturalism has meant fresh perspectives and new answers to old problems, Trudeau said.Noting that Canada is celebrating both the 150th anniversary of Confederation and the 35th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Trudeau said the milestones are a reminder of the values that unite Canadians: Openness, inclusion and deep respect for our differences."Whoever we are, wherever we come from, these values bring us together as equal members of this great country," he said.

U.S.-led coalition envoy visits Syria to discuss Raqqa aftermath-YAHOONEWS-[Reuters]-June 28, 2017

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Brett McGurk, the U.S. special envoy to the coalition against Islamic State visited north Syria on Wednesday and met the council planning to run Raqqa after its capture from the jihadists to assure it of support, one of its members said.The U.S.-led coalition is supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias that began fighting inside Raqqa three weeks ago.The SDF announced the creation of the Raqqa Civil Council in April to replace militant rule in a city that has for three years been Islamic State's de facto capital in Syria.McGurk has met the council in Ain Issa in north Syria twice before in meetings that were not publicized, a member of the Raqqa Civil Council, Omar Alloush, said.Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the coalition, said coalition members are routinely in northern Syria working with the SDF and other local entities including the council. He could not confirm McGurk's visit on Wednesday and referred queries to the special envoy's office.Alloush said McGurk and other coalition officials, including its deputy commander Major General Rupert Jones, promised infrastructure help but did not discuss how much money was available."They did not specify any sum, but they decided we will support first removing mines, lifting rubble, maintenance of schools, then electricity stations and water," Alloush said.This month, volunteers at the council told Reuters they had informed the coalition it would take about $10 million a year to restore power and water supplies, roads and schools.(Reporting by Tom Perry; Writing by Angus McDowall; Editing by Louise Ireland)

Cluster bombs kill at least 15 in eastern Syria-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

BEIRUT — A cluster bomb attack on an Islamic State-held village in eastern Syria killed at least 15 people on Wednesday, activists said, the latest in a series of devastating airstrikes along the Euphrates River ValleyTwo Syrian monitoring groups, Deir Ezzor 24 and Justice For Life, said the weapons were dropped on the village of Doblan by an unidentified jet. Russian, Syrian, and U.S.-led coalition aircraft are all known to operate in the area.Cluster bombs are designed to spread small bomblets across a wide area, but many fail to explode, endangering civilians long after the fighting has ended.Omar Abou Layla, the head of Deir Ezzor 24, said 15 bodies, including of women and children, were recovered in the village. He said residents expect to find many more killed.Ali Rahbe, of Justice For Life, said local informants counted at least 35 dead in the village, which is between the IS strongholds of al-Mayadeen and Boukamal.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the initial toll at 30 dead.At least 57 people were killed in an airstrike on an IS-run jail in the Euphrates River Valley on Monday. Activists said that airstrike was carried out by the U.S.-led coalition. The coalition said it was looking into the reports.Turkey's military meanwhile said it returned fire after an attack by Syrian Kurdish forces.A statement Wednesday said the People's Protection Units, or YPG, fired on Turkish territory overnight with anti-aircraft weapons from Syria's Afrin region. Turkish artillery units returned fire, destroying the "detected targets."The YPG is the main component of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a U.S.-backed militia that is battling the Islamic State group in the extremists' de facto capital, Raqqa. Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdish insurgency raging in its southeast.Turkey was angered by a U.S. decision last month to arm the Syrian Kurds, fearing the weapons will end up in the hands of Kurdish rebels in Turkey.The Associated Press.

Philippines says beheaded civilians found in rebel-held town-[Reuters]-By Kanupriya Kapoor-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - Five decapitated civilians were found in a Philippine city occupied by Islamist rebels on Wednesday, the military said, warning the number of residents killed by rebel "atrocities" could rise sharply as troops retake more ground.The discovery of the five victims among 17 bodies retrieved would be the first evidence that civilians trapped in besieged Marawi City have been decapitated during the five-week stand by militants loyal to the Islamic State group, as some who escaped the city have previously reported.Some 71 security forces and 299 militants have been killed and 246,000 people displaced in the conflict, which erupted after a failed attempt on May 23 to arrest a Filipino militant commander backed by Islamic State's leadership.President Rodrigo Duterte promised to destroy the militants in Marawi and said the Philippines was now dealing with "a very dangerous situation" due to young Muslims inspired by the "mass insanity" of Islamic State."All they do is just to kill and destroy, and killing in a most brutal way," he said at an event where he received hundreds of sniper and assault rifles donated by China to help the military campaign in Marawi."They enjoy decapitating people in front of cameras. They have to be dealt with, with the same ferocity but not the brutality," he said.The information about the beheadings came via a text message to reporters from Lieutenant Colonel Emmanuel Garcia of the Western Mindanao Command. Garcia did not respond to repeated requests for details.A civilian rescue worker, Abdul Azis Lomondot, told Reuters body parts were found, but with "no proof of beheading".Military spokesman Jo-Ar Herrera said bodies were found separately in two groups, of 12 and five, but he was unable to confirm if the five were beheaded.The battle entered its 36th day on Wednesday, with intense gunfights and bombing in the heart of the town and black-clad fighters seen from afar running between buildings as explosions rang out.The rebels' hold on Marawi, while incurring the full force of a military for years trained by its U.S. counterparts, has much of the region on edge, concerned that Islamic State's influence may run deeper than thought.Those fears are also being felt in Malaysia and Indonesia, whose nationals are among the Maute group of rebels fighting in Marawi, suggesting the group may have built a cross-border network that has gone largely undetected.-RISING TOLL-Military spokesman Restituto Padilla earlier said it was likely that many civilians had been killed and the death toll - at 27 before the latest 17 were announced - was only what the authorities could confirm independently and escapees had reported many in the area of fighting."(It) may increase significantly," Padilla told reporters. "There have been a significant number that have been seen."Padilla said the cause of all of those deaths would be "atrocities committed by the terrorists".Among those atrocities, the army says, have been residents being forced to loot homes, take up arms or become sex slaves.Videos have appeared this month on the website of Islamic State's Amaq news agency and its social media channels of hostages in Marawi pleading for their lives, saying they would be beheaded if air strikes were not stopped. Clips have also appeared of kneeling captives, shot in the head from behind.Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.The military has so far been reluctant to discuss the possibility that the real impact of the fighting on civilians could be far more severe than has been reported.It has played down the impact of daily air strikes and mortar assaults aimed at rebel sniper positions, which have reduced areas of the lakeside town to rubble and alarmed people stuck there, some of whom have said the shelling was a bigger threat than the militants.Military spokesman Padilla said troops needed more time to finish what was a tricky mission, complicated by trapped civilians, hostages and booby traps.(For a graphic on battle for Marawi, click http://tmsnrt.rs/2sqmHDf)(Additional reporting by Neil Jerome Morales in MANILA; Writing by Martin Petty)

U.S. says it appears Syria planning another chemical weapons attack-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-June 26, 2017

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday it appears the Syrian government is preparing for another chemical weapons attack and it warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad he and his military would "pay a heavy price" if it conducts such an attack.The White House statement said preparations by Syria were similar to those undertaken before an April 4 chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians and prompted President Donald Trump to order a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.Trump ordered the strike on the Shayrat airfield in Syria in April in reaction to what Washington said was a poison gas attack by Assad's government that killed at least 70 people in rebel-held territory. Syria denied it carried out the attack.The strike put Washington in confrontation with Russia, which has advisers in Syria aiding its close ally Assad.U.S. officials at the time called the intervention a "one-off" intended to deter future chemical weapons attacks and not an expansion of the U.S. role in the Syrian war.(Reporting by Eric Beech; Writing by Yara Bayoumy; Editing by Sandra Maler and Paul Tait)

White House says Assad may be preparing chemical attack-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 26, 2017

WASHINGTON — The White House says it has found "potential" evidence that Syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack.Press Secretary Sean Spicer issued an ominous statement Monday evening that says the U.S. "has identified potential preparations" for another chemical attack by the Assad government that it says "would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children."He says the activities are similar to those made before an April chemical attack. The Trump administration launched missile strikes in retaliation for that attack, which it blamed on Assad.Spicer warns that "if Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price."The White House has provided no immediate evidence to back up its claims.The Associated Press.

Focus-China's 16+1 foray into Central and Eastern Europe By Eric Maurice-euobserver

Prague, 26. Jun, 13:27-Half a decade after it was launched, the network of cooperation between China and 16 Central and Eastern European countries has brought uneven economical and political fruits so far.The so-called 16+1 was established in 2012 as Beijing's initiative to cover various issues such as investment, trade, but also culture or education.The group includes 11 EU countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia; and five non-EU countries from the Balkans: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.It fits into China's global strategy to engage new partners in political and economic ties in different formats.Despite having a permanent secretariat, the Cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European Countries - the initiative's official name - is more a series of bilateral relationships with no overall coherence, as experts pointed out in discussions at the Prague European Summit conference earlier this month."It's not really a multilateral format," Petr Kratochvil, the director of Prague's Institute of International Relations, told EUobserver."It's more a group of countries that China took to have bilateral ties with. It's mainly Poland and Hungary in terms of investment, and Romania and Serbia for building projects."China's interest in the 16+1 countries is different from one country to another.In the Czech Republic, Kratochvil noted, the Chinese have mainly invested in real estate, a football club - Slavia Prague, which just won the Czech championship - or the media."It's not really the kind of investment the country wants, because it doesn't produce anything," he said.In Budapest, meanwhile, the government announced last week that Hungary and China would soon start to cooperate in the healthcare industry – from making medical equipment to developing biotechnologies.Kratochvil noted that the amount of Chinese investments in the region had remained limited and was concentrated on a few high profile infrastructure projects, such as the Budapest-Belgrade high-speed railway that Chinese companies plan to build.The focus on infrastructure shows that China considers Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) a full part of the One Belt-One Road initiative – an investment and infrastructure plan, spanning from China to the Middle-East and Africa through to Central Asia."Southern and Eastern Europe are a testing ground for the Belt and Road," Anastas Vangeli, from the Polish Academy of Sciences, told EUobserver.He said that 16+1 was more an "experiment" than a "Chinese plan", and that Beijing tries "to see whether this type of diplomacy can help them boost economic relations.""To put it very simply, the whole idea is to find ways to boost the economy outside China, to generate demand for Chinese goods," Vangeli said, adding: "And these are not cheap goods: high speed railways, satellites systems or nuclear technology."Agatha Kratz, from the European Council on Foreign Relations, a London-based think-tank, told EUobserver that: "The first idea was to treat CEE as Asia and Africa.""That was a big shock, they explained that loans for projects that China would build were not going to happen."For Kratz, the success of the 16+1 initiative is to be found on the political side than in the economic side.She pointed out that annual summits between the 17 leaders, usually in Europe, constitute a "formal channel of communication".-A pragmatic question-After five years, the 16+1 format "has shown its limits, but it will continue," Kratz added.For China, the forum is "high-level enough and it helps to understand how best to promote what it can do in Europe".For CEE countries, the summits are "one more bilateral forum, one more way to have meetings with China and explain what they [CEE countries] need from it."For countries that are either part of the EU or willing to join it in the future, the Chinese partnership is "a pragmatic question", Kratochvil insisted.Although some leaders, such as Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban or Czech president Milos Zeman, are supportive of certain Chinese positions – for instance Beijing's territorial claims in the South China Sea – the region is not going to become a Chinese "ally"."The idea of a strategic shift is nonsense," Kratochvil said.

Myanmar, Thailand incinerate illicit drugs worth $800 million-[Reuters]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

BANGKOK/YANGON (Reuters) - Officials in Myanmar and Thailand burned illegal narcotics worth more than $800 million on Monday to mark the UN day against drug abuse and trafficking.The move came even as authorities struggle to stem the flood of illicit drugs in the region, with Thailand's justice minister last year saying the country's war on drugs was failing.In Thailand's Ayutthaya province, more than 9 tonnes of drugs with a street value of over 20 billion baht ($590 million) went up in smoke including methamphetamines, known locally as "yaba" or "crazy drug", according to police."Currently, we are able to take down a lot of networks, including ... transnational networks bringing drugs into Thailand ... to be shipped to Malaysia and other countries," Sirinya Sitthichai, Secretary-General of the Office of Narcotics Control Board, told reporters in Ayutthaya.In neighboring Myanmar, the police said they destroyed confiscated drugs worth around $217 million.Myanmar remains one of the world's largest producers of illicit drugs, including opium, heroin and methamphetamines. Those narcotics are often smuggled into China.Last year, law makers in Myanmar voiced disappointment over the country's lackluster efforts to tackle the drug problem.The market for methamphetamines has been growing in Southeast Asia, the United Nations has said. It estimates that Southeast Asia's trade in heroin and methamphetamine was worth $31 billion in 2013.(Reporting by Juarawee Kittisilpa in AYUTTHAYA and Aye Win Myint in YANGON; Writing by Amy Sawitta Lefevre; Editing by Joseph Radford)

Pot insider says dispensaries are 'dreaming' if they think they'll be part of legalization framework-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Omar Khan sat down with Matt Galloway on Metro Morning to discuss big questions that have yet to be answered in the federal government's push to develop a legal framework for recreational marijuana sales by July 2018.Khan is former chief of staff to the Ontario health minister and he now works with the marijuana industry as vice president, public affairs of Hill + Knowlton strategies.Questions and answers have been condensed.Matt Galloway: How prepared is this country for legal weed? Omar Khan: I think right now you have a patchwork of readiness. You have provinces like Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick who are fairly well advanced in terms of their thinking. And you have others, like Manitoba and Saskatchewan, who quite frankly are a little bit further behind.MG: What are the big questions that still have to be answered? OK: I think one of the points that's getting less attention is where will one be able to use marijuana. For example, you can walk down a public sidewalk and smoke a cigarette, but you can't walk down the sidewalk and drink a beer. I think that's a conversation that needs to happen.MG: Do you think that people will be allowed to smoke marijuana in parks, if they can't have an open bottle of alcohol there now? OK: There's a lot of evidence that suggests that harm associated with marijuana use is less than that associated with regular alcohol use. So I think it's something that the province of Ontario especially is going to be looking at as they move forward with their strategy.MG: What about the sale issue? OK: Since the government has set a fairly aggressive timeline for legalization — some have said, July 2018 — I think it's going to be very difficult for the government to have an up-and-running, bricks-and-mortar retail operation by this time next year essentially. I think the government is looking at three options: one would be a wholly government-run crown corporation a la LCBO; I think another option would be a heavily regulated system that gives out private licences for retailing; and then, the third option would be what we call a hybrid. Some private licences combined with a government-run system, similar to how beer and wine is distributed in Ontario.MG: Which way do you think they are leaning?OK: I know the Ontario government started looking at this seriously, right after the election of the Trudeau government. I know the attorney general, Yassir Naqvi, is working away feverishly to put together some options for cabinet to consider. I also know the premier is very big on consultation, so I suspect that before any plan is rolled out, there will be a robust public consultation.MG: Can you have robust public consultation and still set up that regulatory body in time? OK: I know they've been working at this hard for a year or so. The timeline's going to be a challenge no doubt. That's why I suspect that if there are going to be public consultations, as I presume there will be, they'll be rolling them out fairly shortly.MG: Is the timeline too tight? OK: It is what it is. Having worked in government, I know that sometimes you have to set a deadline to get everybody working away at achieving a goal. At the end of the day, what's important is that we are going to have legalized adult use of recreational cannabis in this country. And, industry, government, all involved stakeholders need to start working very fast to get this done right.MG: You work with the industry now. What do they want to know? OK: Like members of the public, they are waiting for more information about what the retail distribution model will look like. But I think industry is very interested in sharing some of their expertise when it comes to distribution. There are a lot of players who have a lot of experience dealing with controlled substances. So for example, pharmacies, care centres. I want to give kudos to Mayor Tory who spoke out vigorously against the illegal dispensaries that are out there right now. The one question everyone needs to ask is, where are these people getting their supply? We have 50 licensed producers or marijuana in this country right now.MG: So where are they getting their supply? OK: I don't want to open myself up to defamation. But they're not getting them from the licensed producers because none of them would risk their licence by providing supply illegally.MG: The assumption from many of the illegal dispensaries is that they're going to be part of the new regime.OK: I think they are dreaming in technicolour. There is no way the province of Ontario or any other province is going to give a retail distribution licence to any entity that's involved in criminal activity.MG: Do you really think we'll meet this deadline? OK: The good thing [Finance Minister] Morneau has put out there is that if there's a province that isn't ready with an up-and-running distribution system next year, there will be a fallback, and I suspect that will be online sales.

Spain sends reinforcements as fire spreads near wildlife reserve-Agence France-Presse-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Madrid (AFP) - Firefighters were battling Monday to contain a blaze threatening a renowned national park in southern Spain which has already led to the evacuation of some 2,000 people.Authorities were sending additional firefighters to tackle the flames at the Donana Natural Park in southwestern Spain near Huelva, a fire service spokesman told AFP."The flames are not under control, they are spreading," he added, though no injuries have been reported.The blaze comes a week after wildfires killed over 60 people in neighbouring Portugal.Strong winds and scorching heat were complicating efforts to fight the blaze, which broke out Saturday near the town of Moguer, officials said.The fire has not yet hit the neighbouring Donana National Park, which has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994 and is well known for the extensive biodiversity of its dunes, wetlands and woods."The flames have not reached the national park," the official in charge of the environment with the regional government of Andalusia, Jose Fiscal Lopez, told Spanish public television."A special effort was made during the night on the front which threatened the park the most," he added.The national park is one of Spain's most important wildlife sanctuaries and a popular tourist attraction.It is home to a variety of animals, including endangered species such as the Spanish imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx, a large cat found only in Spain and Portugal.Officials temporarily evacuated a lynx breeding centre on Sunday as a precaution.A female Iberian lynx died at the Acebuche captive breeding centre on Saturday "due to stress" during its capture for evacuation, the centre said in a statement.The other lynxes are "safe and sound", said the mayor of Moguer, Gustavo Cuellar. "Each lynx held in captivity is receiving detailed care."Over 200 firefighters backed by 15 vehicles and seven planes were battling the blaze on Monday morning, emergency services said.The cause remained unknown but Fiscal Lopez said officials were "certain" human activity played a role."It remains to be seen if this was with (criminal) intent or due to negligence," he added.The fire prompted the closure of several roads and the evacuation of some 2,000 people, including guests at camp sites and several hotels.There were no immediate details on how much land had been burned so far.

Opinion-New initiative could trump the Visegrad Group By Wojciech Przybylski-euobserver

Warsaw, 26. Jun, 17:09-"New Europe" was a term coined by the administration of former US president George W. Bush.When the USA decided to invade Iraq, this term was used to differentiate between – and celebrate – the solidarity of new Nato members compared to the reluctance of the old allies.Since then, the intricacies of European politics – from smaller initiatives to larger regional alliances and even to the inner-workings of the EU itself – have grown considerably.Many wishing to weaken Europe’s position and potential on the global stage try to exploit this division of old vs new, and it is something all leaders on the continent should be wary of.With that still in mind, on 6 July US president Donald Trump will arrive in Warsaw and take part in an assembly of one of these regional alliances, the Three Seas Initiative (TSI) – a meeting of the EU leaders representing Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).The three seas is a reference to the countries situated between the Adriatic, Baltic and Black Seas.The initiative is seen as a major diplomatic triumph of the Polish president, Andrzej Duda, who is also the leader of the TSI and desperate for a win.However, the TSI is just one of many political groupings in the CEE region with a primary focus on influencing EU policy. Other such groupings of more or less importance are the Visegrad Group (V4), Slavkov triangle, Danube Region, Weimar Triangle and Nordic-Baltic cooperation.While their main focus is on fostering cooperation within the EU, such formations are becoming increasingly interesting for external powers such as China (in the so-called 16+1 format) and now the US.Trump’s visit will definitely put a spotlight on the TSI and help this format to continue.TSI members – Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia – pledged in their founding declaration a year ago to foster regional projects in the areas of energy, transportation, digital communication and economic sectors in CEE.However, according to analysts who are advancing the concept, like Bartosz Wisniewski, the head of research office at the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM), the region still has a long way to go when it comes to its economic development.The TSI is meant to complement connectivity between the East and West of Europe, with greater connectivity along the north-south axis, thanks in no small part to the EU's financial contribution.-Not quite quid pro quo-The US has already increased on their military presence in the region, even more so than had been originally promised by the administration of former US president Barack Obama.The LNG (liquid natural gas) terminal in Swinoujscie, Poland – a strategically important facility allowing for more energy independence in the region – has only recently celebrated the arrival of its first transportation from the US and awaits its next shipment from Qatar, and other countries.Justifiably suspicious of their eastern neighbour, Poland will most likely take the opportunity to sup-port the recent sanctions that were proposed by the US Senate last week on contractors for the Nord Stream 2 (NS2) project, as well as other significant Russian businesses.In comparison, both Trump and Hungarian PM Viktor Orban have sought to lift the sanctions on Russia, a sentiment that is also shared today by Austria, a member of the TSI, whose companies are contractors for the NS2.However, according to PISM these differences are fine, as they are neither an attempt to undermine European integration, nor a block to ward off Russia.To the Czechs and Slovaks, the TSI, especially now, might be a little more problematic.While they agree with the goal of north-south connectivity, they are cautious – if not suspicious – of the political dimension.V4 is the most important format to Slovakia, whereas the country treats the TSI more like a one time event.For Slovaks, there is no political content in this grouping. And, beyond that, there is no security component and no political dimension for the country.Czech officials have also expressed reservations towards Poland, a country that, along with Hungary, emphasises the East-West divide. The radicalisation of some V4 members also does not help.Poles automatically reject all ideas from the Western members, a Czech diplomat recently told Gazeta Wyborcza.A member of the Czech ministry of foreign affairs, who was quoted in the same article, went even further, claiming that the idea of a Three Seas Initiative is unacceptable because of its 20th century neo-imperial origin.Such criticism is dismissed by PISM analysts, who underline that despite any apparent differences, Slovakia and Czech Republic will send their representation.Despite many reservations, the obvious champion of the initiative has become the Croatian president, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. Allegedly, her personal involvement was of key importance to the US delegation.The TSI clearly goes along with her plans for her LNG terminal in Croatia that will improve gas sup-ply diversification – independent of Russia – and increase energy cooperation in the region.-Needing a pat on the back-It might be too simplistic, but there is the chance that Trump is using the occasion as a slight against German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron.Is this a not-too-subtle comment about how Trump sees future European cooperation? The question needing to be answered by EU leaders will be whether they think Trump is willing to cut off his nose to spite his face.That worries some, who do not believe that the Polish ministry of foreign affairs can handle a diplomatically sensitive visit.Warsaw, already isolated in the EU, may want to be even more confrontational after Trump's visit. This will also not help to reconcile with Brussels, Berlin or Paris.Furthermore, it will not help to build regional solidarity, since the northern and southern neighbours of Poland will not feel like taking part in fist-fights that would complicate relations with their Western partners.No matter how well-intentioned these leaders are in developing ties between their nations, they will all struggling with domestic and regional issues, as well as questionable popular support.It all makes the meeting feel more like the international conference of future political pariahs.Wojciech Przybylski is the editor-in-chief of Visegrad Insight, and chairman of the Res Publica Foundation in Warsaw. His new book ‘Understanding Central Europe’, co-edited with Marcin Moskalewicz, will be published by Routledge in the second half of 2017.

UK visitors set to pay into EU budget after Brexit By Nikolaj Nielsen-june 27,17-euobserver

BRUSSELS, Today, 22:25-British nationals may end up paying into the EU general budget after the UK leaves the European Union.An EU proposal to tighten border security controls for all visa-free travellers sometime in 2020 will be generating cash by demanding fees from holidaymakers. The fees will pay for annual running costs.But an European Commission official on Monday (26 June) said any surplus revenue would also then go to the EU budget and reduce member state contributions.Proposed last November, the Commission's European Travel Information and Authorisation System (Etias), will screen all visa-free travellers before they enter the passport-free Schengen zone of 26 European states."Any accumulated surplus generated by the Etias revenues would in any case revert back to the EU general budget and hence reduce member state contributions," the Commission official told MEPs.A five-year application under the scheme is €5. The fee is small but the UK's total sum in the pot is not insignificant.Brits made 35 million holiday trips to the EU last year alone with around a third going to Spain, followed by France and Greece. Another 5.5 million were business trips.A spokesperson from the UK-based Association of British Travel Agents (Abta) told EUobserver that the UK holiday figures to the EU have increased substantially in the past few years.He noted that 2016 was "an all time record".Abta wants the British government to negotiate an exemption for UK nationals in Etias, noting that "it is in everyone's interest to keep these flows going."The UK government, meanwhile, says it is determined to get the best possible deal for the country.A UK government spokesperson said Etias was just "one of many areas that may need to be addressed as we leave the EU and agree a new partnership."It is also likely to stir up resentment among people who campaigned to leave the EU, given that British nationals may still be footing, albeit indirectly, the EU budget after Brexit.Commission estimates suggest Etias will cost over €200 million to launch and around €85 million to maintain annually. Discussions between the EU institutions have yet to start but the plan is to reach an agreement before the end this year.German Green MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht said the EU would be better off making it easier for people to travel than imposing a new system that not only creates more red tape but also blanket collects personal data."Making it easier for people from countries, which are also democracies, to travel to the European Union and back is a positive thing and we need not to make that more difficult but easier," he said on Monday.EU nationals, for their part, took 10 million holiday trips and some 7 million business trips to the UK in 2016.

Before tragedy strikes': Liberals launch centre to prevent homegrown terrorism-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

The federal government has launched a new centre tasked with preventing the radicalization of Canadian young people.A special adviser will be named in the coming months to oversee the local outreach and research projects funded through the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence.The centre will have dedicated staff, but will be located within the existing Public Safety Canada space.Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada must become a world leader in understanding and dealing with radicalization that leads to violence, in order to retain its national character as an open, diverse society that is also safe and secure."The new Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence will help us do as much as humanly possible to prevent radicalization to violence before tragedy strikes," Goodale said in a statement. "It will support and empower local leaders to develop initiatives that are suited to their community."Last year's budget set aside $35 million over five years and $10 million each year after to combat radicalization and violence in Canada.Ontario Liberal MP Arif Virani, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of heritage (multiculturalism), said the new centre will drive better research, understanding and engagement, with a special focus on youth vulnerable to radicalization. Building up trust relationships and opening lines of communication are critical to combating radicalism at the ground level, he said.-No boundaries to extremist views-The centre will not focus on Islamist extremism alone, but will cover a wide spectrum, because while some attacks are perpetrated by Islamist extremists, others target Muslims, Virani said."When we look at what's happening across the country, radicalization is not endemic to any one group, institution, race or religion," he said. "It doesn't have particular boundaries that are tied to a religion or an ideology. That's very important to keep in mind because that's a situation we need be upfront about in terms of where the threats are coming from and not focusing on any one particular community."In January, six people were killed and 19 others injured in an attack by a gunman at a Quebec CIty mosque.-Domestic acts of terror-Last August, Aaron Driver died in an altercation with police in Strathroy, Ont. RCMP believe he was preparing to carry out a suicide bombing in a public place.That incident came less than two years after Michael Zehaf-Bibeau shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo while he stood on guard at the National War Memorial, an act the RCMP called terrorism, before making his way to Parliament Hill.Jeremy Littlewood, a terrorism expert at Ottawa's Carleton University, said Canada's domestic terrorism problem is smaller than some of our closest allies, but that doesn't mean there is no danger.Littlewood said it's too early to tell if Canada's approach will work to combat domestic terrorism, but he said it is wise not to target only one group of extremists."Making it one type of terrorism specific, for example, al-Qaeda or ISIS-inspired terrorism, is a recipe for creating fear, suspicion and perpetuating the notion of suspect communities within a population," he said.Littlewood said success will depend partly on sustained funding, and an openness about what is working and what is not.The government is accepting proposals for the Community Resilience Fund as of July 6, 2017, which has $1.4 million available to fund projects in 2018-19. For subsequent years, there will be $7 million for continuing and new projects.Ten projects have already received funding for counter-radicalization work.

Crowd flows, camera coverage being studied to bolster Parliament Hill security-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

OTTAWA — Security officials say they're ready for the throngs set to descend on Parliament Hill for Canada's 150th birthday celebration Saturday.But that doesn't mean federal researchers are done thinking about how to better protect the country's seat of democracy in the months and years ahead.Advisers are gathering data on everything from crowd flows to video-camera placement to ensure both security and openness in the parliamentary precinct.Parliament Hill security is a "tough nut to crack" because of the fine balance between guarding the most important democratic institutions while keeping the grounds open to people, said Rami Youssef of the federal Centre for Security Science, a wing of Defence Research and Development Canada.After a gunman stormed the Hill in October 2014, dying in a hail of bullets in the Hall of Honour, the centre completed two studies. One looked at the physical security of Parliament's Centre Block, while the other delved into procedures for handling visitors and employees in the parliamentary precinct.The most tangible result of the armed assault was creation of the unified Parliamentary Protective Service, drawing together forces from the RCMP, House of Commons and Senate.The centre's researchers need more information before making the next set of recommendations to decision-makers, Youssef said in an interview."The reality is there's a lot of data to be collected, and a lot of data to be studied and analyzed," he said. "We have to go little by little, because they cannot make any drastic changes just overnight."Researchers are interested in the varied nature of the crowds that turn up on Parliament Hill, as well as the ebb and flow of pedestrian traffic at different times of day.Plans were revealed four years ago to boost video-camera coverage of the Hill substantially to guard against possible attacks by detecting abandoned packages, suspicious activity and disturbances.Researchers are studying different types of cameras, their placement and the percentage of visual coverage on the Hill, Youssef said.Work has been focused to date on trying to prevent attacks in the parliamentary precinct but, time permitting, the centre might explore other types of threats and hazards, such as an earthquake or other natural disaster, he added.Many parts of the Hill are undergoing extensive renovations. That could be a welcome opportunity to embed security changes into revamped buildings, Youssef said.The new Parliamentary Protective Service is working with the centre researchers on projects throughout the precinct, but disclosing details of the efforts "would expose operational tactics and measures" that could affect safety, said Melissa Rusk, a spokeswoman for the protective service.Federal officials are also reviewing the mandate of the Government Operations Centre, the focal point for monitoring major national events and emergencies. In addition, they are seeking a new home for the Ottawa-based centre.During the 2014 shooting, the centre lacked computer technicians, food was limited and senior emergency officials weren't in the building, according to internal documents released two years ago. — Follow @JimBronskill on Twitter-Jim Bronskill , The Canadian Press.

3,000 N.L. Muslims gather for Eid celebrations at Jack Byrne Arena-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Muslims in the St. John's area joined with others around the world in celebrating Eid Sunday — the festival that marks the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan.The celebration at Jack Byrne Arena Sunday morning began with prayers and then a meet and greet with tea, coffee, and snacks."After prayer, we had refreshments, and after refreshments they put out some bouncy castles for kids to play on," Reem Abu-Hendi said.The local celebration is huge — about 3,000 Muslims packed the Jack Byrne Arena early Sunday morning."The community at first, was not that large so like the mosque used to accommodate us but now it's really big like 3,000 people in one place, it's amazing," she said."Just to see all the Muslims in one place, it's a great feeling." Abu-Hendi said.Ramadan is a sacred time for Muslims, who believe that it was when the Qur'an — the holy book — was revealed through the prophet Muhammad."It's 30 days but this year it happened to be 29 because of the moon,"  Ayamen Shaawen said.The month, which started this year May 26, includes dawn-to-dusk fasting, and ends with a religious holiday called Eid."We fast from 3 a.m. until 9 p.m. so it's 18 hours a day," Abu-Hendi said.The fasting can be challenging, but that's what makes it worthwhile, she said."Your body just gets adjusted to it, and I would say it's thirst more than hunger, so you can usually go about your daily activities but around 6 p.m.-7 p.m., I'm done," she said.Without food all day, you'd think there might be a lot of cranky people walking around who are "hangry," but Abu-Hendi says it's all about willpower."Ramadan teaches you patience and self-control. If we lose to anger we could break our fast," she said."It's more of a self-discipline thing," Shaawen said.Volunteers who set up the event get up at the crack of dawn to prepare the arena for the 3,000 attendees."It's a big challenge for those who volunteer to organize it. Before we had a smaller community and our mosque was able to accommodate the size of our community but not anymore," said organizer Ayse Sule."It's a team effort," said Moein Shahwan, vice-resident of the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador."It brings lots of richness to our community and we are proud of it," Sule said.

Relatives of serial killer's victims speak of pain, guilt and anger-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

WOODSTOCK, Ont. — One after another, family and friends of a serial killer's victims described overwhelming guilt, anger and profound sadness when they learned their loved ones had been murdered by an Ontario nurse who was supposed to care for them.And many spoke about their loss of faith in the province's long-term care system, where Elizabeth Wettlaufer was allowed to cast her "shadow of death" over vulnerable seniors for nearly a decade.Wettlaufer was sentenced Monday in a Woodstock, Ont., court to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 25 years after she pleaded guilty last month to eight counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault.The 50-year-old nurse used insulin trying — and in most cases succeeding  — to kill vulnerable victims in her care at three Ontario long-term care facilities and a private home. Her crimes began in 2007 and didn't stop until she confessed to the killings at a psychiatric hospital in Toronto last fall.Sandy Millard, whose 87-year-old mother, Gladys Jean Millard, was murdered by Wettlaufer in 2011 at Caressant Care in Woodstock, told court about the depression she has fallen into."Finding out she was killed by a huge injection of medication she did not need broke my heart," she said.Her daughter, and Millard's granddaughter, Shannon Emmerton, spoke through tears."I don't know if I will ever truly recover," she said.Patricia Matheson glared at Wettlaufer as she read a statement by her husband, whose mother, Helen Matheson, was killed by the nurse in 2011."I lost my mother for the second time. No funeral this time, just shock, followed by the question why," Jon Matheson wrote. "I placed my mother in a facility I researched never once considering she would be a victim of such a despicable act. I ask why, because she didn't eat all the blueberry pie and ice cream?"The question of why Wettlaufer killed or hurt 14 people loomed large in court. In a lengthy video statement she gave to police last fall, she said she felt a "red surging" well up in her chest that was relieved after she completed a kill. She believed she was an instrument of God at times, but also killed because some residents were too much work, too burdensome.Many others, wracked by guilt, spoke of what-ifs."I simply feel guilty for not being able to protect my father as he had protected me," wrote David Silcox, whose father, James Silcox, was murdered in 2007.Justice Bruce Thomas acknowledged that guilt was the common theme of the 28 victim impact statements filed in court a few weeks ago."It is a complete betrayal of trust when a caregiver does not prolong life, but terminates it," he said. "But you cannot blame yourselves."Thomas described Wettlaufer's "free run" on her nine-year killing spree, with no oversight or even an inkling she had committed such calculated murders."Without her confessions, I am convinced these offences would never have been brought to justice," he said, calling Wettlaufer a "shadow of death that passed over them (the victims) on the night shift where she supervised."Debora Rivers said her grandmother, Mary Zarawinski, hated the nursing home when she first went there. There are a lot of old people here, she told her niece, even though Zarawinski was one of the oldest residents in the facility."She made it nice for everybody there," Rivers said outside court.She also noted that Wettlaufer had described Zarawinski as "'fun and feisty' — and she was.""The woman lived to be 96 years old for God's sake," Rivers said. "We have no way of knowing how long her life might have been," she said. "We were pretty sure she was going to make it to 100 and so was she."For her part, Wettlaufer apologized, crouching in the prisoner's box without looking at anyone."I am truly sorry for the people I injured or murdered," she said in a soft voice."Sorry is much too small a word. I hope that the families can find some peace and healing."Beverly Bertram, who is Wettlaufer's sole living victim, wrote about the physical pain she was in after the nurse injected her with insulin with the intent to kill her."It is really hard to describe, but I knew I was dying," she wrote in her statement. "I was doubled over in pain in my stomach...Just such pain. My whole body hurt...I thought I was screaming, but I was just moaning I guess."Bertram wrote that she has become a recluse since the incident, afraid of everyone, including her own shadow, and has lost all relationships with her family."I truly think sometimes I'd be better off if she did her deed."Shortly after Wettlaufer's sentencing hearing, the province announced it would hold a public inquiry into the murders to ensure a similar tragedy does not happen again.Liam Casey , The Canadian Press.

Demand for Canada 150 flags, brings seamstress out of retirement-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Canada Day is just under a week away and thanks to the demand for flags leading up to the big celebration, one New Brunswick woman has had to put her retirement on hold.Theresa King's basement is full of bright materials and the tools to turn them into something special. Since March, most of King's projects have been paused while she helps her former employer.- Cyclists pedal into New Brunswick for Canada 150 journey - Fredericton's Canada 150 funding largely focused on 'Indigenous reconciliation' "I thought I was going to be retired," King said with a laugh from her seat in front of a sewing machine.After 28 years working for The Flag Store in Thornton, Ont., she moved to Tower Hill, near St. Andrews. King was only given two years before her old boss came calling."The demand for Canadian flags for the 150 has been so dramatic that they have been out of flags forever," King said.So she agreed to help, thinking at first it would only be for a couple of weeks. Her estimate turned out to be off. Way off.Getting into the flag business-"By the time I'm finished, it will be about 2,500, three-foot-by-six-foot Canadian flags that I will have finished."Working from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., King can put together about 250 flags a week, which despite their complexity, she will tell you is fast.In order to save on the shipping costs, King drove her first shipment of 1,400 flags to Ontario in May.There has been some time for King to enjoy some side projects, like altering a graduation dress, but she said she's happy to help her former colleagues.In her years working for The Flag Store, she said March always meant the beginning of the busy season. But Canada 150 she said, has created demand the store isn't normally accustomed to."Those girls are pretty tired too," King said. "They're just swamped and there just isn't enough time in the day."It isn't just King who is hard at work in the workshop, she enlisted her husband, Doug, to help out too.He'll be the first to tell you that he never planned on getting into the flag business. But after stencilling off bright red maple leafs from cloth, Doug King said the work keeps him out of trouble.While her time is occupied by piecing together red and white material, King will have a little variety in her life this week.-100 and counting-A text from her boss saw rolls of green, gold, and black arrive at her door with a request from the Jamaican consulate."I have 100 to make" she said, "So I can ship them on Wednesday."After being so busy, you would think King planned on taking Canada Day off to enjoy seeing some flags fly. Instead, she said she's only going to take a break to go to the market before getting back to work.With a goal of getting another 1,000 Canadian flags finished by September, she said her next delivery will be her vacation."That'll be my holiday" King said, "A few days off to drive to Ontario and deliver all the flags."

Canadians will soon have a law on how to dispose of mercury-filled light bulbs-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Canadians will soon have guidance from the federal government on how to dispose of mercury-containing light bulbs in an environmentally responsible way.Bill C-238, a new act that sets out rules for a national light bulb disposal strategy, received royal assent on Thursday.The National Strategy for Safe and Environmentally Sound Disposal of Lamps Containing Mercury Act commits the government to identify ways to dispose of mercury-containing light bulbs safely and establish guidelines for facilities that dispose of them, and then promote the program to Canadians.The bill also requires the environment minister to table the national strategy in Parliament within two years of the act receiving royal assent. -No regulations-Dartmouth-Cole Harbour MP Darren Fisher, who introduced the private member's bill, said there were no federal regulations outlining how to dispose of light bulbs."You can take your mercury-bearing light bulb, and you can throw it in your garbage bag and put it to the curb," he said.One regular, 13-watt residential compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) — the curly looking ones that are slowly replacing the traditional, round incandescent bulbs — contains on average 3.5 milligrams of mercury. Energy Star-certified CFLs contain 2.5 milligrams or less. Fluorescent tubes contain up to 12 milligrams.Fisher said about 1,150 kilograms of mercury end up in Canadian landfills each year, and can contaminate the environment.Mercury is also listed as a toxic substance under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act."So this is an incredibly big issue," he said.Compact fluorescents on the rise-A 2014 federal ban on most residential incandescent bulbs means more Canadians are using compact fluorescent bulbs. A 2014 report from Statistics Canada noted that in 2011, three-quarters of households across the country used at least one CFL bulb.About half the households that used CFLs reported throwing them in the garbage, and Haligonians were the most likely to toss them, with 84 per cent doing so, the report said.-'Piecemeal' approach-Recycling facilities in some municipalities and provinces break CFL bulbs down and recycle about 98 per cent of the components, including the mercury. Some retailers also collect used bulbs to send to recyclers.But Fisher described that as a "piecemeal" approach.He encourages Canadians to recycle their bulbs or simply hold on to them until the new law is developed."If the worst thing you have to do is put them in a cardboard box and leave them in your garage until the strategy comes forward, please do so, because what we'd like to see is no mercury-bearing light bulbs going into our landfills across Canada," said Fisher.

Nine dead after Colombia tourist boat sinks in reservoir-[Reuters]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

BOGOTA (Reuters) - Nine people died and 28 are missing after a multi-decked tourist boat carrying about 170 passengers sank in Colombia's Penol-Guatape reservoir on Sunday during the long holiday weekend, a government official said.Officials did not disclose the cause of the accident and provided few details.Videos posted on social media showed motorboats coming to the aid of passengers on the upper decks as the boat rocked from side to side. Ninety-nine people were rescued, Margarita Moncada, the head of disaster relief for Antioquia province, told journalists."At the moment we have nine people found dead. Another 99 people were rescued immediately and 40 more got out on their own," she said.Survivors on local television reports said they heard a loud noise before the boat began to sink and that not all of them had life jackets. Rescue operations were ongoing.Rescue workers and the air force were helping passengers at the scene, President Juan Manuel Santos said in a Twitter post.The large reservoir, about an hour from the central city of Medellin, is a popular tourist destination.(Reporting by Luis Jaime Acosta and Julia Symmes Cobb; Editing by Richard Chang)

My first 25 books - click picture to enlarge (© Dr Karl Shuker)

Today is the fourth anniversary of my mother Mary Shuker's passing. I owe my lifelong love of reading, writing, and nature to Mom - her love for all wildlife nurtured my own from my earliest days, and her impeccable command of the English language tutored and guided my own throughout my life. Consequently, to commemorate and celebrate her kindly, positive, and truly immeasurable influence upon my entire existence and career, the present ShukerNature blog article is dedicated to my mother, and consists of a frequently-requested, currently-complete listing of all of the books that I have written, have acted as consultant for, have contributed to, or to which I have written a foreword. It will be updated whenever new books need to be added here.

Without you, Mom, none of my writings would have existed - God bless you, and thank you for the inestimable love, joy, happiness, and blessings that you gave to me and bestowed upon me by being in my life as my mother.

          Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag   

Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag

Date: 1. juli 2017

Today we celebrate pioneering British aviator  Amy Johnson. The first woman to fly solo from England to Australia, Johnson became a symbol of perseverance and a feminist inspiration around the world.

Breaking into the male-dominated field of aviation proved difficult but not impossible for Johnson. Though she was not a naturally gifted pilot, Amy possessed an unshakable resilience that inspired future generations. In fact, before setting her first world flying record in 1930, Amy’s strong determination and drive qualified her to be the first British-trained woman ground engineer — for a brief time, she was the only woman in the world to hold that job title.

That sort of resume does not go unnoticed. To honor the homecoming of her record-breaking solo flight from England to Australia, Amy was welcomed back with the tune “Amy, Wonderful Amy” — a hit song recorded by Jack Hylton and His Orchestra.

Johnson quickly joined the ranks of other top female aviators, such as Amelia Earhart and Florence “Pancho” Barnes, by breaking several more world records — including her husband’s record for the fastest solo flight from London to Cape Town. Throughout her career, she made headlines as the “British Girl Lindbergh”and “The Long Girl Flyer.” She later shifted her solo flying adventures into a stint as First Officer in the Air Transport Auxiliary during the Second World War.

To celebrate the spirit of this fearless flyer, today’s Doodle reminds us that there is no challenge too high or too far. Happy 114th birthday, "wonderful Amy"!

          ONLINE INTERNET POLICE   
Internet police is a generic term for police and secret police departments and other organizations in charge of policing Internet in a number of countries. The major purposes of Internet police, depending on the state, are fighting cybercrime, as well as censorship, propaganda, and monitoring and manipulating the online public opinion.

It has been reported that in 2005, departments of provincial and municipal governments in mainland China began creating teams of Internet commentators from propaganda and police departments and offering them classes in Marxism, propaganda techniques, and the Internet. They are reported to guide discussion on public bulletin boards away from politically sensitive topics by posting opinions anonymously or under false names. "They are actually hiring staff to curse online", said Liu Di, a Chinese student who was arrested for posting her comments in blogs.
Chinese Internet police also erase anti-Communist comments and posts pro-government messages. Chinese Communist Party leader Hu Jintao has declared the party's intent to strengthen administration of the online environment and maintain the initiative in online opinion.

The Computer Emergency Response Team of Estonia (CERT Estonia), established in 2006, is an organisation responsible for the management of security incidents in .ee computer networks. Its task is to assist Estonian Internet users in the implementation of preventive measures in order to reduce possible damage from security incidents and to help them in responding to security threats. CERT Estonia deals with security incidents that occur in Estonian networks, are started there, or have been notified of by citizens or institutions either in Estonia or abroad.
Cyber Crime Investigation Cell is a wing of Mumbai Police, India, to deal with Cyber crimes, and to enforce provisions of India's Information Technology Law, namely, Information Technology Act 2000, and various cyber crime related provisions of criminal laws, including the Indian Penal Code. Cyber Crime Investigation Cell is a part of Crime Branch, Criminal Investigation Department of the Mumbai Police.
Andhra Pradesh Cyber Crime Investigation Cell is a wing of Hyderabad Police, India, to deal with Cyber crimes.

Dutch police were reported to have set up an Internet Brigade to fight cybercrime. It will be allowed to infiltrate Internet newsgroups and discussion forums for intelligence gathering, to make pseudo-purchase and to provide services
After the 2006 coup in Thailand, the Thai police has been active in monitoring and silencing dissidents online. Censorship of the Internet is carried out by the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology of Thailand and the Royal Thai Police, in collaboration with the Communications Authority of Thailand and the Telecommunication Authority of Thailand.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) is the only recognised organisation in the United Kingdom operating an Internet ‘Hotline’ for the public and IT professionals to report their exposure to potentially illegal content online. It works in partnership with the police, Government, the public, Internet service providers and the wider online industry.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center, also known as IC3, is a multi-agency task force made up by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

IC3's purpose is to serve as a central hub to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding occurrences of cyber-crime. The IC3 gives the victims of cybercrime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations on the internet. IC3 develops leads and notifies law enforcement and regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level, IC3 act as a central referral mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.

Criminal threatening is the crime of intentionally or knowingly putting another person in fear of imminent bodily injury.

There is no legal definition in English law as to what constitutes criminal threatening behaviour, so it is up to the courts to decide on a case by case basis. However, if somebody threatens violence against somebody, then this may be a criminal offence. In most countries it is only an offence if it can be proven the person had the intention and equipment to carry out the threat. However if the threat involves the mention of a bomb it is automatically a crime.
In most U.S. jurisdictions, the crime remains a misdemeanor unless a deadly weapon is involved or actual violence is committed, in which case it is usually considered a felony.

Criminal threatening can be the result of verbal threats of violence, physical conduct (such as hand gestures or raised fists), actual physical contact, or even simply the placing of an object or graffiti on the property of another person with the purpose of coercing or terrorizing.

Criminal threatening is also defined by arson, vandalism, the delivery of noxious biological or chemical substances (or any substance that appears to be a toxic substance), or any other crime against the property of another person with the purpose of coercing or terrorizing any person in reckless disregard for causing fear, terror or inconvenience.

"Terrorizing" generally means to cause alarm, fright, or dread in another person or inducing apprehension of violence from a hostile or threatening event, person or object.

Crimint is a database run by the Metropolitan Police Service of Greater London which stores information on criminals, suspected criminals and protestors. It was created in 1994 and supplied by Memex Technology Limited. It supports the recording and searching of items of intelligence by both police officers and back office staff. As of 2005 it contained seven million information reports and 250,000 intelligence records. The database makes it much easier for police officers to find information on people, as one officer who used the system stated in 1996:

"With Crimint we are in a new world. I was recently asked if I knew something about a certain car. In the old days I would have had to hunt through my cards. I would probably have said, 'Yes, I do, but . . . '. With Crimint I was able to answer the question in about fifteen seconds. And with Crimint things just don't go missing.
People are able to request their information from the database under data protection laws. Requests have shown that the database holds large amounts of information on protesters who have not committed any crimes. Information is stored for at least seven years. Holding information on people who have never committed any offence may be against people's human rights. A police officer, Amerdeep Johal, used the database to contact sex offenders and threatened to disclose information about them from the database unless they paid him thousands of pounds.

Along with development of the Internet, state authorities in many parts of the world are moving forward to install mass surveillance of the electronic communications, establish Internet censorship to limit the flow of information, and persecute individuals and groups who express “inconvenient” political views in the Internet. Many cyber-dissidents have found themselves persecuted for attempts to bypass state controlled news media. Reporters Without Borders has released a Handbook For Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents and maintains a roster of currently imprisoned cyber-dissidents

Chinese Communist Party leader Hu Jintao ordered to "maintain the initiative in opinion on the Internet and raise the level of guidance online, An internet police force - reportedly numbering 30,000 - trawls websites and chat rooms, erasing anti-Communist comments and posting pro-government messages." However, the number of Internet police personnel was challenged by Chinese authorities Amnesty International blamed several companies, including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo!, of collusion with the Chinese authorities to restrict access to information over the Internet and identify cyber-dissidents by hiring "big mamas" .
It was reported that departments of provincial and municipal governments in mainland China began creating "teams of internet commentators, whose job is to guide discussion on public bulletin boards away from politically sensitive topics by posting opinions anonymously or under false names" in 2005 Applicants for the job were drawn mostly from the propaganda and police departments. Successful candidates have been offered classes in Marxism, propaganda techniques, and the Internet. "They are actually hiring staff to curse online," said Liu Di, a Chinese student who was arrested for posting her comments in blogs

Internet censorship is control or suppression of the publishing or accessing of information on the Internet. The legal issues are similar to offline censorship.
One difference is that national borders are more permeable online: residents of a country that bans certain information can find it on websites hosted outside the country. A government can try to prevent its citizens from viewing these even if it has no control over the websites themselves. Filtering can be based on a blacklist or be dynamic. In the case of a blacklist, that list is usually not published. The list may be produced manually or automatically.

Barring total control over Internet-connected computers, such as in North Korea, total censorship of information on the Internet is very difficult (or impossible) to achieve due to the underlying distributed technology of the Internet. Pseudonymity and data havens (such as Freenet) allow unconditional free speech, as the technology guarantees that material cannot be removed and the author of any information is impossible to link to a physical identity or organization.

In some cases, Internet censorship may involve deceit. In such cases the censoring authority may block content while leading the public to believe that censorship has not been applied. This may be done by having the ISP provide a fake "Not Found" error message upon the request of an Internet page that is actually found but blocked (see 404 error for details).

In November 2007, "Father of the Internet" Vint Cerf stated that he sees Government-led control of the Internet failing due to private ownership. Many internet experts use the term "splinternet" to describe some of the effects of national firewalls.

Some commonly used methods for censoring content are:

IP blocking. Access to a certain IP address is denied. If the target Web site is hosted in a shared hosting server, all websites on the same server will be blocked. This affects IP-based protocols such as HTTP, FTP and POP. A typical circumvention method is to find proxies that have access to the target websites, but proxies may be jammed or blocked, and some Web sites, such as Wikipedia (when editing), also block proxies. Some large websites like Google have allocated additional IP addresses to circumvent the block, but later the block was extended to cover the new IPs.

DNS filtering and redirection. Don't resolve domain names, or return incorrect IP addresses. This affects all IP-based protocols such as HTTP, FTP and POP. A typical circumvention method is to find a domain name server that resolves domain names correctly, but domain name servers are subject to blockage as well, especially IP blocking. Another workaround is to bypass DNS if the IP address is obtainable from other sources and is not blocked. Examples are modifying the Hosts file or typing the IP address instead of the domain name in a Web browser.

Uniform Resource Locator (URL) filtering. Scan the requested URL string for target keywords regardless of the domain name specified in the URL. This affects the HTTP protocol. Typical circumvention methods are to use escaped characters in the URL, or to use encrypted protocols such as VPN and TLS/SSL.

Packet filtering. Terminate TCP packet transmissions when a certain number of controversial keywords are detected. This affects all TCP-based protocols such as HTTP, FTP and POP, but Search engine results pages are more likely to be censored. Typical circumvention methods are to use encrypted connections - such as VPN and TLS/SSL - to escape the HTML content, or by reducing the TCP/IP stack's MTU/MSS to reduce the amount of text contained in a given packet.

Connection reset. If a previous TCP connection is blocked by the filter, future connection attempts from both sides will also be blocked for up to 30 minutes. Depending on the location of the block, other users or websites may also be blocked if the communication is routed to the location of the block. A circumvention method is to ignore the reset packet sent by the firewall.

Reverse surveillance. Computers accessing certain websites including Google are automatically exposed to reverse scanning from the ISP in an apparent attempt to extract further information from the "offending" system.

One of the most popular filtering software programmes is SmartFilter, owned by Secure Computing in California, which has recently been bought by McAfee. SmartFilter has been used by Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Sudan, as well as in the US and the UK.

There are a number of resources that allow users to bypass the technical aspects of Internet censorship. Each solution has differing ease of use, speed, and security from other options. Most, however, rely on gaining access to an internet connection that is not subject to filtering, often in a different jurisdiction not subject to the same censorship laws. This is an inherent problem in internet censorship in that so long as there is one publicly accessible system in the world without censorship, it will still be possible to have access to censored material.

Proxy websites are often the simplest and fastest way to access banned websites in censored nations. Such websites work by being themselves un-banned but capable of displaying banned material within them. This is usually accomplished by entering a URL address which the proxy website will fetch and display. They recommend using the https protocol since it is encrypted and harder to block.

Java Anon Proxy is primarily a strong, free and open source anonymizer software available for all operating systems. As of 2004, it also includes a blocking resistance functionality that allows users to circumvent the blocking of the underlying anonymity service AN.ON by accessing it via other users of the software (forwarding client).

The addresses of JAP users that provide a forwarding server can be retrieved by getting contact to AN.ON's InfoService network, either automatically or, if this network is blocked, too, by writing an e-mail to one of these InfoServices. The JAP software automatically decrypts the answer after the user completes a CAPTCHA. The developers are currently planning to integrate additional and even stronger blocking resistance functions.

Using Virtual Private Networks, a user who experiences internet censorship can create a secure connection to a more permissive country, and browse the internet as if they were situated in that country. Some services are offered for a monthly fee, others are ad-supported.

Psiphon software allows users in nations with censored Internet such as China to access banned websites like Wikipedia. The service requires that the software be installed on a computer with uncensored access to the Internet so that the computer can act as a proxy for users in censored environments

In 1996, the United States enacted the Communications Decency Act, which severely restricted online speech that could potentially be seen by a minor – which, it was argued, was most of online speech. Free speech advocates, however, managed to have most of the act overturned by the courts. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act criminalizes the discussion and dissemination of technology that could be used to circumvent copyright protection mechanisms, and makes it easier to act against alleged copyright infringement on the Internet. Many school districts in the United States frequently censor material deemed inappropriate for the school setting. In 2000, the U.S. Congress passed the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) which requires schools and public libraries receiving federal funding to install internet filters or blocking software.[104] Congress is also considering legislation to require schools, some businesses and libraries to block access to social networking websites, The Deleting Online Predators Act. Opponents of Internet censorship argue that the free speech provisions of the First Amendment bars the government from any law or regulation that censors the Internet.

A 4 January 2007 restraining order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Jack B. Weinstein forbade a large number of activists in the psychiatric survivors movement from posting links on their websites to ostensibly leaked documents which purportedly show that Eli Lilly and Company intentionally withheld information as to the lethal side-effects of Zyprexa. The Electronic Frontier Foundation appealed this as prior restraint on the right to link to and post documents, saying that citizen-journalists should have the same First Amendment rights as major media outlets. It was later held that the judgment was unenforcable, though First Amendment claims were rejected.

In January 2010, a lawsuit was filed against an online forum, Scubaboard.com, by a Maldives diving charter company (see scubaboard lawsuit). The owner of the company claimed $10 million in damages caused by users of scubaboard, scubaboard.com, and the owner of scubaboard.com. Individual forum members were named in the lawsuit as "employees" of the forum, despite their identity being anonymous except for their IP address to the moderators and owners of scubaboard.com. This lawsuit demonstrates the vulnerability of internet websites and internet forums to local and regional lawsuits for libel and damages.
          LAW AND CYBERCRIME   
Cyber Defamation is a crime conducted in cyberspace, usually through the Internet, with the intention of defaming others. The cyber defamation law that the Korean government tries to make is intended to capture such criminal activities by allowing police to crack down on hateful comments without any reports from the victims. The only country where such cyber defamation law is being implemented is China, and South Korea is the first democratic country in the process of introducing the law.

There have been talks about introducing the stricter laws in cyberplace. A famous celebrity's suicide in South Korea, triggered the controversies once again as to whether such law is necessary. The law supported by the governing Grand National Party (GNP), if implemented, will allow police to investigate the cyber defamation cases without any complaints of the victims. The opposition Democratic Party (DP) has been against the introduction of such law.

The Convention on Cybercrime is the first international treaty seeking to address Computer crime and Internet crimes by harmonizing national laws, improving investigative techniques and increasing cooperation among nations. It was drawn up by the Council of Europe in Strasbourg with the active participation of the Council of Europe's observer states Canada, Japan and USA.

The Convention and its Explanatory Report was adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe at its 109th Session on 8 November 2001. It was opened for signature in Budapest, on 23 November 2001 and it entered into force on 1 July 2004. As of 2 September 2006, 15 states had signed, ratified and acceded to the convention, while a further 28 states had signed the convention but not ratified it.

On 1 March 2006 the Additional Protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime came into force. Those States that have ratified the additional protocol are requited to criminalize the dissemination of racist and xenophobic material through computer systems, as well as of racist and xenophobic-motivated threats and insults.

The Convention is the first international treaty on crimes committed via the Internet and other computer networks, dealing particularly with infringements of copyright, computer-related fraud, child pornography and violations of network security. It also contains a series of powers and procedures such as the search of computer networks and Lawful interception.
Its main objective, set out in the preamble, is to pursue a common criminal policy aimed at the protection of society against cybercrime, especially by adopting appropriate legislation and fostering international co-operation.

The Convention aims principally at:

harmonising the domestic criminal substantive law elements of offences and connected provisions in the area of cyber-crime

providing for domestic criminal procedural law powers necessary for the investigation and prosecution of such offences as well as other offences committed by means of a computer system or evidence in relation to which is in electronic form

setting up a fast and effective regime of international co-operation.

The following offences are defined by the Convention: illegal access, illegal interception, data interference, system interference, misuse of devices, computer-related forgery, computer-related fraud, offences related to child pornography and offences related to copyright and neighbouring rights.

It also sets out such procedural law issues as expedited preservation of stored data, expedited preservation and partial disclosure of traffic data, production order, search and seizure of computer data, real-time collection of traffic data, and interception of content data. In addition, the Convention contains a provision on a specific type of transborder access to stored computer data which does not require mutual assistance (with consent or where publicly available) and provides for the setting up of a 24/7 network for ensuring speedy assistance among the Signatory Parties.

The Convention is the product of four years of work by European and international experts. It has been supplemented by an Additional Protocol making any publication of racist and xenophobic propaganda via computer networks a criminal offence. Currently, cyber terrorism is also studied in the framework of the Convention.

Its ratification by the United States Senate in August 2006 was both praised and condemned. The U.S. became the 16th nation to ratify the convention. Forty-three nations have signed the treaty. The Convention entered into force in the USA on January 1, 2007.

"While balancing civil liberty and privacy concerns, this treaty encourages the sharing of critical electronic evidence among foreign countries so that law enforcement can more effectively investigate and combat these crimes," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.

"The Convention includes a list of crimes that each signatory state must transpose into their own law. It requires the criminalization of such activities as hacking (including the production, sale, or distribution of hacking tools) and offenses relating to child pornography, and expands criminal liability for intellectual property violations. It also requires each signatory state to implement certain procedural mechanisms within their laws. For example, law enforcement authorities must be granted the power to compel an Internet Service Provider to monitor a person's activities online in real time. Finally, the Convention requires signatory states to provide international cooperation to the widest extent possible for investigations and proceedings concerning criminal offenses related to computer systems and data, or for the collection of evidence in electronic form of a criminal offense. Law enforcement agencies will have to assist police from other participating countries to cooperate with their mutual assistance requests.

Although a common legal framework would eliminate jurisdictional hurdles to facilitate the law enforcement of borderless cyber crimes, a complete realization of a common legal framework may not be possible. Transposing Convention provisions into domestic law is difficult especially if it requires the incorporation of substantive expansions that run counter to constitutional principles. For instance, the U.S. may not be able to criminalize all the offenses relating to child pornography that are stated in the Convention, specifically the ban on virtual child pornography, because of its First Amendment free speech principles. Under Article 9(2)(c) of the Convention, a ban on child pornography includes any “realistic images representing a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.” According to the Convention, the U.S. would have to adopt this ban on virtual child pornography as well, however, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, struck down as unconstitutional a provision of the CPPA that prohibited "any visual depiction” that "is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct." In response to the rejection, the U.S. Congress enacted the PROTECT Act to amend the provision, limiting the ban to any visual depiction “that is, or is indistinguishable from, that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.” 18 U.S.C

The United States will not become a Party to the Additional Protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime.

Computer crime, or cybercrime, refers to any crime that involves a computer and a network, where the computers may or may not have played an instrumental part in the commission of a crime. Netcrime refers, more precisely, to criminal exploitation of the Internet. Issues surrounding this type of crime have become high-profile, particularly those surrounding hacking, copyright infringement, child pornography, and child grooming. There are also problems of privacy when confidential information is lost or intercepted, lawfully or otherwise.

On the global level, both governments and non-state actors continue to grow in importance, with the ability to engage in such activities as espionage, financial theft, and other cross-border crimes sometimes referred to as cyber warfare. The international legal system is attempting to hold actors accountable for their actions, with the International Criminal Court among the few addressing this threat

Computer crime encompasses a broad range of potentially illegal activities. Generally, however, it may be divided into one of two types of categories: (1) crimes that target computer networks or devices directly; (2) crimes facilitated by computer networks or devices, the primary target of which is independent of the computer network or device.

Examples of crimes that primarily target computer networks or devices would include:

• Computer viruses
• Denial-of-service attacks
• Malware (malicious code)

Examples of crimes that merely use computer networks or devices would include:

• Cyber stalking
• Fraud and identity theft
• Information warfare
• Phishing scams

A computer can be a source of evidence. Even though the computer is not directly used for criminal purposes, it is an excellent device for record keeping, particularly given the power to encrypt the data. If this evidence can be obtained and decrypted, it can be of great value to criminal investigators.

Spam, or the unsolicited sending of bulk email for commercial purposes, is unlawful to varying degrees. As applied to email, specific anti-spam laws are relatively new, however limits on unsolicited electronic communications have existed in some forms for some time

Computer fraud is any dishonest misrepresentation of fact intended to let another to do or refrain from doing something which causes loss. In this context, the fraud will result in obtaining a benefit by:

Altering computer input in an unauthorized way. This requires little technical expertise and is not an uncommon form of theft by employees altering the data before entry or entering false data, or by entering unauthorized instructions or using unauthorized processes.

Altering, destroying, suppressing, or stealing output, usually to conceal unauthorized transactions: this is difficult to detect.

Altering or deleting stored data.

Altering or misusing existing system tools or software packages, or altering or writing code for fraudulent purposes.

Other forms of fraud may be facilitated using computer systems, including bank fraud, identity theft, extortion, and theft of classified information.
A variety of Internet scams target consumers direct.

The content of websites and other electronic communications may be distasteful, obscene or offensive for a variety of reasons. In some instances these communications may be illegal.
Many jurisdictions place limits on certain speech and ban racist, blasphemous, politically subversive, libelous or slanderous, seditious, or inflammatory material that tends to incite hate crimes.
The extent to which these communications are unlawful varies greatly between countries, and even within nations. It is a sensitive area in which the courts can become involved in arbitrating between groups with entrenched beliefs.
One area of Internet pornography that has been the target of the strongest efforts at curtailment is child pornography.

Whereas content may be offensive in a non-specific way, harassment directs obscenities and derogatory comments at specific individuals focusing for example on gender, race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation. This often occurs in chat rooms, through newsgroups, and by sending hate e-mail to interested parties (see cyber bullying, cyber stalking, harassment by computer, hate crime, Online predator, and stalking). Any comment that may be found derogatory or offensive is considered harassment.

Drug traffickers are increasingly taking advantage of the Internet to sell their illegal substances through encrypted e-mail and other Internet Technology. Some drug traffickers arrange deals at internet cafes, use courier Web sites to track illegal packages of pills, and swap recipes for amphetamines in restricted-access chat rooms.

The rise in Internet drug trades could also be attributed to the lack of face-to-face communication. These virtual exchanges allow more intimidated individuals to more comfortably purchase illegal drugs. The sketchy effects that are often associated with drug trades are severely minimized and the filtering process that comes with physical interaction fades away. Furthermore, traditional drug recipes were carefully kept secrets. But with modern computer technology, this information is now being made available to anyone with computer access.

Government officials and Information Technology security specialists have documented a significant increase in Internet problems and server scans since early 2001. But there is a growing concern among federal officials that such intrusions are part of an organized effort by cyberterrorists, foreign intelligence services, or other groups to map potential security holes in critical systems. A cyberterrorist is someone who intimidates or coerces a government or organization to advance his or her political or social objectives by launching computer-based attack against computers, network, and the information stored on them.

Cyberterrorism in general, can be defined as an act of terrorism committed through the use of cyberspace or computer resources (Parker 1983). As such, a simple propaganda in the Internet, that there will be bomb attacks during the holidays can be considered cyberterrorism. As well there are also hacking activities directed towards individuals, families, organised by groups within networks, tending to cause fear among people, demonstrate power, collecting information relevant for ruining peoples' lives, robberies, blackmailing etc.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) notes that cyberspace has emerged as a national-level concern through several recent events of geo-strategic significance. Among those are included the attack on Estonia's infrastructure in 2007, allegedly by Russian hackers. "In August 2008, Russia again allegedly conducted cyber attacks, this time in a coordinated and synchronized kinetic and non-kinetic campaign against the country of Georgia. Fearing that such attacks may become the norm in future warfare among nation-states, the concept of cyberspace operations impacts and will be adapted by warfighting military commanders in the future.
          TMBA365: Estonian E-Residency: Is It For You?   
http://www.tropicalmba.com/estonia/ On today's show, Dan and Ian are taking a look at one specific country. Estonia is a nation that, until this point, our hosts had very little knowledge of. They are a country that has started behaving like a startup, and has even started offering services specifically designed for location-independent entrepreneurs. In particular, they have developed a solution for our travel woes in the form of something called an "E-Residency". On this episode, you will hear from Estonian E-Resident, Joel Runyon. Joel is the man behind the fitness and mindset blog, The Blog of Impossible Things. You'll also hear from Estonia's Chief Information Officer, Taavi Kotka. The two of them will share their insights on how E-Residency could pave the path to the future of how nations, citizens, and digital nomads interact.

          IGDA executive director Kate Edwards steps down   
Kate Edwards

The International Game Developers Association's executive director Kate Edwards is stepping down after almost five years in the post. In the mean time, chair of the board of directors and Beamdog CEO Trent Oster will serve as an interim executive director until a replacement is found.

During Edwards' five year tenure, the IGDA has expanded into a number of new regions, including Bangladesh, Egypt, Estonia, Georgia and Tunisia, and Edwards has signed more than 300 peer advisory letters of recommendation for game developers trying to get work visas in the US. 

She's also been a key figure on social issues in the games industry, and was one of the first to speak out against GamerGate and the practice of 'crunch time'. 

Trent Oster commented: “Kate has been an important industry leader for the IGDA in this role, doing heroic work as an advocate for developers of all backgrounds. Her accomplishments have carried the IGDA through tough times and helped countless developers on their journeys. We look forward to seeing what Kate accomplishes in what is certain to continue to be a bright career.”

Edwards added: "It’s been a great honor to help game developers from all walks of life, all over the world, succeed in our industry,” says Edwards. “I want to thank the IGDA board, staff and all its members whose advocacy has made a difference for our community, and I look forward to following the association’s continued success.”

          Migranti fuori dall'agenda Ue ​Ora l'Italia è sempre più sola   
Brusca frenata sugli aiuti all&#39;Italia da parte dell&#39;europa per l&#39;emergenza migranti. Il premier Gentiloni aveva chiesto ripsote e impegni in tempi brevi. Ma a quanto pare la risposta arriverà in tempi lunghi. Il ministro estone, Andreas Anvelt che il 6 e il 7 luglio prossimi guiderà il vertice informale dei ministri degli interni dei Paesi Ue ha una posizione chiara: &quot;All&#39;Italia non daremo nessuna risposta&quot;, mette in chiaro Anvelt, ma &quot;ascolteremo quali sono stati i cambiamenti&quot; che quest&#39;ultima settimana hanno indotto Roma a minacciare la chiusura dei suoi porti alle navi delle ong, per vedere &quot;come affrontare la questione della protezione delle frontiere, dei porti e le relazioni con la Libia&quot;. Parole che pesano, soprattutto in uno scenario in cui l&#39;Estonia si appresta ad aprire il suo semestre di presidenza dell&#39;Unione. Già ieri qualcuno in modo diretto si era smarcato dalle promesse a favore del nostro Paese. Capofila la Francia con il presidente Emmanuel Macron che ha chiuso le porte ad un probabile sostegno all&#39;Italia per far fronte alla crisi. Macron ha infatti dato il suo appoggio ad un intervento per i richiedenti asilo e non per i migranti economici che rappresentano gran parte degli arrivi. Il presidente della Commissione europea, Jean Claude Juncker ha ribadito il suo sostegno (per ora solo a parole): &quot;Vedrò con il primo ministro italiano e con il primo ministro greco la prossima settimana quali ulteriori sforzi la Commissione possa attuare per aiutare l&#39;Italia e la Grecia nelle loro difficili sfide&quot;. Infine in visita a Tallin ha ribadito: &quot;Ho detto che Italia e Grecia non possono essere lasciati soli&quot;.

          578. Shedding the Past and Creating the New   

Or sharing some of the process involved in giving myself authority to create the new version of me that I can be proud of living in

Something that I’ve become aware of is a hindrance to creating the new within us is keeping ourselves captive to our own words, thoughts, emotions, feelings as memories of ‘who we have been’ and believing that we don’t have the authority to step out of that and create for ourselves a fresh start every day. As simple as it might sound, it seems that we create our own limitations based on ‘who we have been’ and ‘how we’ve always done things’ and ‘how we’ve always behaved’ and believe that there’s no way around this, that this is ‘it’ and we have to carry our burdens for a lifetime. That’s definitely not so.

 I’ve discovered through walking this process with Desteni that I have been able to reinvent myself and slowly but surely give myself the authority to actually become the person I many times envisioned I would ‘like to be’ but, somehow in my mind, had believed ‘I didn’t have it in me’ to become the kind of person I would mostly admire when it comes to women or be attracted to when it comes to males, because that’s the way that I was identifying all the aspects/words/potentials that I saw others living in their lives. Yet at the same time, I would think of myself as ‘not having what it takes’ to ‘pull that off’ so to speak… who decides? I was, in my mind existing in fears, ideas, limitations, thinking what will ‘others say about this/that,’ ‘that would be so out of character for me to do’ and all other kinds of ideas, beliefs and justifications adorning fears to actually give myself an opportunity to reinvent myself, to create myself anew.

This sounds like a ‘transcendental’ process in fact and it might be to a certain extent, but it isn’t really something that complex when one realizes the ability we have to ‘step out of the preprogrammed ways’ in every moment of our lives, it is as simple as that, we just sometimes or ‘usually’ fear ‘the unknown’ that comes with it instead of realizing that we can trust ourselves to become the new, test it out, live it out and see if it is in fact supportive and beneficial for oneself or not and go back to the drawing board to test out something different instead.

I was chatting with a friend yesterday and we were talking about our past as ‘the Grinch kind of people’ that would be ‘anti’ everything: anti-capitalists, anti-consumerism, anti-social, anti-government, anti-politics and the rest of it, which was interesting to see how much we could relate to seeing how many doors we closed in our lives because of standing in such position of ‘this is who I am, it is the right way, it is the just way/the right way and whatever I say will help you to wake up!’ which interestingly enough he also mentioned this could have assisted some to ‘open eyes’ to investigate reality – which surely, can be so to a certain extent – but I also shared how in my process, I had to ask myself ‘who am I’ within such stance/what’s my starting point in it within such criticism and ‘awakened’ type of mentality I was carrying as myself, and how I had found a lot of antagonism, criticism, rebelliousness, superiority, righteousness and in essence creating a ‘fight against the world’ that led me to become a misanthrope at times, which all comes from an arrogant superiority believing myself to be ‘corrected’ already, instead of seeing that I was still then being part of the problem, being only criticizing, judging but not really proposing any ways to change things, starting within myself.

“How did you manage to change?” he asked and I shared that it was part of this same process of self-support with Desteni, getting to understand my responsibility to it all to no longer stand ‘against’ everything and everyone, but to apply understanding, to rather find ways to better relate to each other, to find the common ground even in our plethora of disparities and opinions/judgments/beliefs and all of those things that have come to separate us even if they only exist in our minds.

That’s how I shared that even though I had focused a lot on possible changes at a political and economic level, the ball kept falling back again and again on the front of individual self-change, and how the nature of the system is nothing else but the nature of the relationships we have forged ‘against’ – currently – one another, and how with people taking responsibility for that self-change first, then the idea of a ‘new system’ becomes more plausible. He agreed with that, even though in his own path he’s also contributing within the economic realm at a local level, he considered again how relevant it is for us to yes, be informed, educate ourselves about the nature of the systems, the potential solutions and the rest of it – but not to forget about that inner/self-change, a change of mind, a change of consciousness so to speak which to him is more in the sense of ‘getting more in touch with yourself’ which surely is a growing trend I’d say, and it’s great in whichever ways people find it supportive.

There’s this song that starts saying ‘to change the world is to change personal perspective’ and it is so, I’ve been seeing for myself what it is to stop seeing the eyes through the ‘giving up on myself/humanity’ eyes where everything seemed gloomy, dismal, pointless, depressed, angry, antagonistic… because I was projecting my own experience onto everyone else and I wasn’t even aware of it. Whereas now through having walked my own experiences related to only seeing ‘the bad’ in the world, all the problems, all that’s ‘out of place’ according to me, the actual change emerged when I was able to give myself this openness, this opportunity to change me, to breakthrough, to create myself ‘anew’, to create and work on my potential and to stop holding myself as a victim to my own past, but instead embrace the potentials I can forge in my life.

This is also why self-forgiveness comes into play as a key tool to do this, because no one will give us this permission, no one else will give us ‘the green light’ we keep waiting for, but ourselves. We have to stand as that authority itself. I’ve been testing this out for myself and breaking my own ‘oaths’ that I thought I could not ever step back from in my absolutist mindset. Like saying ‘I will shave my head for the rest of my life’ and breaking that set of words that to me was something I had to stick to because ‘I said so and I cannot backup from that!’ and in that become an absolutist by my own will, instead of being self-honest about what would be most practical and ‘normal’ thing to do for me… that was a huge part of creating this new phase within me as well, of letting go of my own dictatorship and break my own rules so to speak, to decide to ‘create the next phase’ of self-creation and no one else was going to do it for me! I had to decide and do it for myself.

The same with saying ‘I won’t ever do this/that,’ well I’ve found myself doing it and testing who I am within it and then assess what is best for me or not, but no longer create an ‘unbreakable’ idea of myself that became so rigid, so authoritarian and absolutist that became my own invisible cage in which I thought I was comfortably living in. Might be a point of a comfort zone indeed, there’s a false sense of security when sticking to ‘the good old’ apparently, but I’ve found that this is a great lie we tell ourselves. With time this becomes a hindrance, a great limitation and a great source of bitterness and dissatisfaction because deep within ourselves we are aware we could live in an enjoyable manner, we could do things differently, we could Live differently altogether and be the way that we ‘dreamed’ ourselves of living as, and when we don’t dare to do it, we go day by day cementing all the reasons, justifications, fears and excuses of why we apparently ‘can’t do it’ – that’s the illusion to break through, to push through and give ourselves that creative authority to create the new.

So, to answer to my friend, I said that the most significant change emerged when I changed within myself and so started seeing people/humanity/the world and its potential. This was not such an ‘easy’ thing to do initially due to how ingrained all of my personalities, perspectives, ‘ways of being’ were all attached to me holding this defeatism as myself and so projecting it towards the world, to the point of having preferred everything to just ‘be gone’ in one moment than me giving myself a chance to see and work with the potentials, which is what I am focusing on now. Also, making it simple, not trying to engulf the whole world in my own hands and try and do ‘everything’ or try to ‘change the world out there’ – but take my own life, walk through my own limitations, expand myself and what I’ve been ‘doing’ and going breaking my own barriers that way, little by little, one step at a time as it is said.

The benefits of doing this for myself is the definition of actual freedom, which is interestingly enough related to push through wanting to ‘go through the easy way out’ or through ‘the route of less effort’ and instead, see the benefits that come with actually dedicating ourselves to get to know who we are, seeing our flaws, our problems, our ‘weaknesses’ and start deciding and working on how can we start changing all of those aspects that we dislike about ourselves that are holding us captive to a decadent past.

There are many ways to do this, I can only speak of and recommend the one that I’ve walked and continue applying in my day to day living, which is the Desteni I Process and the community of support that we are all as Desteni, supporting, sharing, learning from each other to expand and grow together as years go by, to walk this process that -even if being apart by long distances – know that we got each other to share what we go through, to assist each other in understanding the practical ways to walk through this, because let’s be honest: doing this process of change is not a ‘common thing’ in this world as of yet – it’s sort of getting there but not yet – so being part of a supportive community makes a complete difference to it, in essence,  you know you’re not alone in doing it no matter how ‘far’ we are from each other and that’s comforting as well, a sense of brotherhood is created and knowing that from the ‘few’ we might be right now, there are the many to awaken to this potential in all of us and join in, in whichever way or form they decide to do so. It’s happening, this is the new way of living, and we are the only ones that can decide to start doing so for ourselves.

Thanks for reading.

And! Watch this hangout that I had with Garb as well, it was very cool to share our perspectives on redefining and living words, all of it based on the great source of support that Eqafe.com is

Eqafe Hangout: How to Stop Overcomplicating Redefining & Living Words.

Also this series to learn how to support ourselves/each other, learning to see the potential in each other rather than bringing us down constantly

          Kalle Rovanperä, WRC y Británico de Rallies en 2018   
kalle-rovanpera-wrc-mas-britanico-de-ral

Kalle Rovanperä es apenas un adolescente, pero la expectación que está creando en el mundo de los rallies es similar a la que generó Max Verstappen cuando escaló a la Fórmula 1. A sus 16 años, el hijo de Harri Rovanperä ya ha competido a los mandos de varios R5 en los Nacionales de Estonia, Finlandia o Italia e incluso ha rodado con el Ford Fiesta RS WRC de la anterior generación, además de probar en un test el Toyota Yaris WRC. Kalle Rovanperä debutará en el seno del WRC en el Rally de Gales, pero a partir de ahí su futuro irá paso a paso.

Su entorno, con su representante a la cabeza, han diseñado un camino lógico y sosegado para el joven piloto finlandés. En este aspecto, está previsto que en 2018 dispute al menos seis pruebas del WRC con un vehículo R5 dentro de la categoría WRC2. Las pruebas candidatas a este programa son Argentina, México, Finlandia, Australia, Gales y España por las limitaciones de edad que tendrá un Rovanperä que no cumplirá los 18 años hasta la recta final de la temporada. Sin embargo, no será el único programa para el piloto suomi, ya que Kalle Rovanperä disputará algunas pruebas del Campeonato Británico de Rallies.

Será en 2019 cuando Kalle tenga un programa completo en WRC2 con intención de luchar por el título, aunque antes de esto deberá foguearse en el Británico de Rallies (BRC), un escenario perfecto para aprender, tal y como ha explicado en 'Autosport' el mánager de Rovanperä, Timo Jouhki: "El BRC es muy buen escenario. Hay algunas colisiones en el calendario con el WRC, así que tendremos que ver cómo encaja todo. Será muy útil para él hacer el BRC en paralelo a las rondas del WRC previstas. El Británico de Rallies es un buen lugar para aprender. Hay muchas superficies diferentes y distintos tipos de eventos".

          PreO Relay demo   
VB-beszámolóm zárásaként van szerencsém bemutatni a VB csapatversenyt felváltani hivatott PreO váltót, ami számomra a WTOC legjobb eseménye volt. Igaz, emiatt vállaltuk a feszített hazautat (Miksa egy hős!) és a késő éjjeli érkezést, de megérte.
Jártunkban többször elmentünk a Lavarone Lake mellett, igazán helyes tavacska, ahol a turisták strandolnak, kikapcsolódnak. Szerencsére nem nagy, így pontos infó híján a harmadik megközelítési próbálkozásra megtaláltuk a versenyközpontot. Elfoglaltuk (szó szerint) a rendezői parkolót és meghallgattuk az instrukciókat. 
Előzetesen két stratégia között vacilláltunk: első futó legyek én és osszam el a pontokat vagy a csapattagságot vállaló Tündét (ezúton is köszi) küldjük előre azzal, hogy amit elég biztosnak érez, azt a 7 pontot válaszolja meg. Utóbbi mellett döntöttünk, utólag szerintem a másik verzió éles versenyben jobb lehet.
A pálya 24 pontból állt és mint a térképen láthatjátok, volt egy északi hurok 8 ponttal, egy távolabbi rész (1-6), melyet egy elég nehezen járható úton lehetett megközelíteni és néhány közelebbi pont. A maximálisan felhasználható időt a hagyományos módon számolják (minden pont és 100 méter = 3 perc) azzal a kiegészítéssel, hogy a távot egy ideális útvonal adja (tehát beleértve a tagok visszamenését a váltóhelyre). Ez ebben az esetben szerintem így nézett volna ki:
1. 1-8 pontok 1400 méter
2. 9-16 pontok 900 m
3. 17-24 pontok 1450 m
3750 m > 112 perc + 72 perc = 184 perc
A rendezők gondolkodását nem ismerem, de a max. time 180 perc volt. Ez elsőre iszonyat soknak tűnt, aztán "jól" kihasználtuk.
Előzetesen kézbe kaptunk egy ügyesen összerakott kartont - tulajdonképpen négy kartoncsík volt egybetűzve, így az első futó mind a négyen átlyukasztott, érkezéskor a legfelsőt letépte, a társak ezáltal látták, melyeket oldotta meg.
A tömegrajt hangulatos volt, kicsit talán vicces is. A norvégok éjjel hazautaztak, a svédek pedig talán félreértésből, talán szándékosan egy szűk órával később érkeztek meg. Nálunk Tünde kezdett és megcsinált 7 feladatot (9 + 11-16 pontok), három hibával (ezt közben természetesen nem tudtuk). A váltást rendező segítette, figyelmeztetett a karton átalakítására és átadására, a térképre és a szúróra. Igen, az északon bevált saját szúróbélyegzőt alkalmazták, minden csapat kapott egyet. Hogy ez csak kényelmesebb volt így, vagy van jelentősége, nem tudom.
Miksa is nekigyürkőzött a feladatnak, Tündének pedig elvben ezután el kellett volna mennie a két időmérő feladatot megoldani. Valami rendezési gikszer itt is lehetett, mert az első futóknál ezt törölték. Így Tündének a karanténba kellett beülnie.
Egy idő után már aggódva vártam Miksát, mert Tünde 45 percet volt kint, ő pedig egy teljes órát. Mint kiderült, neki jutott a legnehezebben járható út. Tanulság: hasonló esetben haladásában nehezített csapattagnak csak abban az esetben szabad távoli pontokat adni, ha oda aszfaltút vezet. Az északi hurok sokkal jobb lett volna, ott csak kevés földút volt és jól járható. Miksa
beérkezésekor először a kartont ellenőriztem, hogy mely pontok hiányoznak. Sajnos komolyan vette a megbeszélteket és 9 pontot hagyott - a 8-as északi hurkot és a 8-ast, ami mellett többször elment és meg is oldotta. Tanulság: menet közben rugalmasan kell alakítani a stratégiát, mert szorosabb idő mellett emiatt kicsúszhattunk volna. A megoldótérkép alapján 2 hibát ejtett a 8 ponton, de szerintem a 3-ast utólag megváltoztatták és végül azért nem kaptunk hibapontot.
Egy kis szabálymagyarázat: a svéd javaslat szerint kis játékosság van a tagok által megoldható pontok számában:
  • az első futó megcsinálhat 8+/-1 pontot
  • a második is 7,8 vagy 9 feladatot oldhat meg, annak észben tartásával, hogy az utolsó tagnak is kell ennyi maradjon (tehát ha az első futó 7-et, akkor a 2. nem választhat 7-et - túl sok maradna, ha az első 9-et, nem választhat 9-et - túl kevés maradna)
  • a harmadik futóé a maradék (7,8 vagy 9)
A nekem jutó 17-24-es pontok tetszettek, egy tízes skálán 3-7-es nehézségűek voltak. (Fotók feladatként egy következő bejegyzésben.) Az időt majdnem teljesen felhasználtuk, talán 10 perc maradt. Nyilván tudtunk volna jobban sietni és jobban szétosztani, de nem volt kedvem
szaladni. Az időmérő könnyű volt, habár kicsit merész szerintem egy olyan kerítésvégre tenni pontot, ami a térképen alig észrevehető (ti látjátok?).
Az eredményeket nem tudtuk megvárni, mert menni kellett a csapat 5days-es felét összeszedni, de a 20 pontunk és 40 másodpercünk a 14. helyet jelentette az elindult 33 csapatból. Előttünk volt két vegyes nemzetiségű csapat is, sőt, a győztes is az Estonia-Spain váltó lett (23p), majd Finnország 1-es és Olaszország 1-es váltója (22p). Érdekesség, hogy a finn fiúk - láthatóan külön játékként - egy óra alatt megcsinálták a teljes pályát, futva.
Kezdettől tetszik a váltó ötlete, sokkal izgalmasabb a csapatversenynél, ezt ez a demó is bemutatta. Egy dologgal viszont nem értek egyet: úgy tudom, semmilyen előírást nem terveznek a csapatok összetételével kapcsolatban, tehát nem lesz kötelező paralympiai kategóriájú versenyző részvétele. Ez tovább növeli a bő kerettel érkező válogatottak előnyét. Az eddigi világbajnokságokon is látszott, hogy az egy paralympiai, nem kerekesszékes versenyzővel kiálló csapatok végeznek a pódiumon. Így semmi akadálya nem lesz, hogy tisztán openes csapatok taroljanak és a parások kiszorulnak az élversenyből (egy-két nagyon erős paralympiai kategóriájú, nem kerekesszékes, mobilis versenyzőt leszámítva). Ez nem helyes.

Mindenkit biztatok, hogy próbálja ki a váltót itthon, az első hazai TrailO váltó bajnokságon, októberben, Miskolcon. Egyelőre a svéd módszert javasoljuk, de a fejlesztés nyitott, van egy kicsit más finn ötlet is.

           George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies “The Hinge of History”    

George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies “The Hinge of History”
Remarks By Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, June 28, 2017

Thank you Keith, old friend. 

Minister von der Leyen, there’s probably no one who I would rather be here with today than my esteemed fellow minister, the first minister to call on me after I had the surprise of being assigned to this job, I might add. 

Thank you again for making the trip to Washington. But I would also say that there’s a connection between us:  we did not sit down and write our speeches together, yet as I was listening to her and nodding to myself I thought, ‘My gosh, I’m going to bore everybody with the same themes you just heard.’

But Madam Mayor, thank you for all of the hospitality that all of us receive when we come to this beautiful corner of the world. It is absolutely a stunning place to visit.  

And Ladies and Gentlemen, it is wonderful to be back in Germany once again:
To pay my respects to an ally that is 100 percent committed to freedom and to the dignity of human beings; and 
To show America's solidarity with the German people and standing up for Western values for which we are unapologetic.

I cannot come to Germany, however, without expressing my deep respect for this country's troops…for their professionalism, for their courage and for their sacrifices on shared battlefields in Afghanistan and against ISIS or any other agents of terror and all the world. 

Because for the German military, and for you here today from the German military, I would just say that your ethical performance is a model for all others and we, in the United States Department of Defense, are grateful for our strong alliance with the German military.

Minister von de Leyen and I just completed the inaugural Strategic Dialogue, as you heard, between Germany and the United States. We charted our shared security priorities for the coming year in this perfect locale for that…in the finest spirit of what George Marshall stood for.  We talked about Afghanistan, the enhanced Forward Presence in Eastern Europe, and our national security strategies, and I would just cite that regardless of any news reports to the contrary, the transatlantic bond between our two countries remain strong.

Germany and the United States stand together, allied against threats to the peace and security of this continent, Canada, and the United States…and the disruption of harmony elsewhere.

The U.S. commitment to our NATO Article V security guarantee is ironclad, as demonstrated over decades by our steadfastness and given voice more recently by President Trump before the American people in the Rose Garden with NATO ally, Romanian President Iohannis, standing at his side and certainly, it was given voice by the United States Senate just a short couple of days ago in a unanimous resolution, 100 to zero.

All of this transatlantic bond is represented in this room here today. And 70 years ago, as Minister von de Leyen noted, on a picturesque campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, an American diplomat gave the commencement address at Harvard University. I need not remind this audience again of what George Marshall said that day, for we can see today across Europe the realization of what became a shared vision – a peaceful, industrious and prosperous continent, free from tyranny, possessing the military strength to defend itself from aggression. 

Sometimes, it is necessary to pause and recall first principles. We can kind of take things for granted after a while if we do not. We need to remind ourselves of why we initially embarked on a path…of why free people of Europe, Canada, and the United States made a conscious decision to codify our transatlantic partnership and dare to bind our nations by treaty to collective defense.

All these nations' democracies…anyone of them could have opted out with the wish of avoiding danger, yet they united together: 

In the North Atlantic Treaty Article V, the parties stated that “an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against all.”
And in the North Atlantic Article III, we bound ourselves to share the burden of defense saying, “that parties separately and jointly by means of continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid will maintain individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack.”

So, ladies and gentlemen, how did a man named George Marshall come to give a speech that so eloquently articulated the principles underpinning today's international order? Why does the international center here today bear his name, still 70 years later?

And the simple answer is that he lived at the hinge of history.

Having joined the Army, George Marshall was sent off to fight in a catastrophic conflict, World War I, in which 1.2 million doughboys came to pay America's debt to Lafayette.  He lived war and he lived all of its injustices.

When the armistice came, Marshall went home to America and lived through the Great Depression, seeing grown men and women with despair in their eyes. For 20 years, he learned and he matured, watching the storm clouds gather again over the continent he had left behind.  

When the storm broke in 1939, he witnessed the failed peace of 1918:  fourteen percent of Europe's pre-war population was killed or displaced during the Second World War.

Our nations experienced the horrors that can only happen when freedom is imperiled, when peaceful pursuits of civilized life are suspended, when deterrence fails and our societies are engulfed in total war. When at enormous cost, the force of arms had restored peace to this continent, the peoples of our nations gazed on the destruction. 

U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, not yet the Secretary, but coming home, a young officer who had served in our World War II Pacific Campaign, he spoke for a generation when he said that they “Looked back on world wars, a generation that saw 61 million killed, that saw the depression and they said to themselves, ‘What a crummy world and we are part of it whether we like it or not.’”

Longing for a safer future, the Greatest Generation, as we call them, saw their own security in the security of others. They had the courage to recognize:
All collective efforts had to be taken to avoid repeating mistakes that opened the door to war; and 
Should freedom be threatened and war truly unavoidable, then all efforts had to be taken to bring war to a decisive end as swiftly as possible.

They also had the courage to act, not just to look at it, not just to talk about it…to make the necessary sacrifices and to make genuine commitments to keep the peace. That generation, schooled by life's cruelties, by severe economic deprivation and the death of friends and family members, stood face-to-face with the competitive, zero sum side of life.  

The vileness of the Second World War, waged on a scale unimagined perhaps other than by those with memories of having lived through it, nevertheless left the generation aware that there is more to life than war and competition alone.

In 1947, Europe lay in ruins…starvation, poverty, desperation and chaos clamored to dictate the future. Enter Marshall, who saw his generation's moment and transcribed its lessons. 

“It is logical,” he said, “that the United States should do whatever it is able to do to assist and return of normal economic health in the world.  Without which, there can be no political stability and no assured peace.”

Under the Marshall Plan, the United States provided billions in aid to Europe after the war, as part of a larger effort to rebuild and secure the continent.  

Marshall knew history swings on a hinge. And the Marshall Plan permitted hundreds of millions to keep their humanity, confident of the basic social order:  from food to security, rule of law and essential political freedom. Twenty years after the plan took effect, the per capital gross domestic product of UK, France, Italy and Germany had more than doubled.

But to keep the peace, a resuscitated Europe had to become a partner in it. As Marshall said, and as Minister von de Leyen just pointed out, “It is neither fitting nor efficacious for the U.S. government to draw up unilaterally a program to place Europe on its feet economically. This is the business of the Europeans. The initiative must come from Europe.”

As Marshall told the UN General Assembly in Paris in 1948, “International organizations cannot take the place of national and personal effort or of local and individual imagination; international action cannot replace self-help.” 

And so out of destruction and unified by that notion, our peoples built a grand new world, the Bretton Woods Institutions, the IMF and the World Bank, the United Nations, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, Marshall's generation built these tools to help underwrite stability and prosperity. The last seventy years have proven the value of these institutions and the wisdom of that generation.

Europe transformed from a security consumer into a security provider, something Marshall ardently desired for he never envisioned that America would carry the burden alone. He knew from experience it had to be shared, both its benefits and its burdens. Since World War II, European allies have contributed to large scale U.S. led global operations. At peak contributions, 39,000 Allies fought with the United States in Afghanistan and 59,000 Allies fought with us in Iraq.

We must not allow the years passed since 1947 to blind us to the reality of today. For those of us who grew up with freedom from fear, from starvation, and the burden of World War, we cannot turn away from the responsibility to pass these same freedoms intact to the next generation. 

Allies stick together, as we did 69 years ago this week when the Soviet Union blockaded Berlin and the United States refused to abandon it.

U.S. Air Force Captain Billy Phelps flew 167 flights into that stranded city, bringing food to save its inhabitants from starvation and bitter cold. Captain Phelps was 26 years old the night his cargo plane crashed a mile from the end of the runway. A German boy named Wolfgang Samuel saw it happen. 

Wolf wrote, "They fell like a rock out of the sky. The two pilots were killed."  And then the child had a flash of insight.  He said, "Only three years ago, they were fighting against my country and now, they were dying for us.” 
“I wondered,” he said, “what made these people do the things they did."

Captain Phelps knew he owed future generations the same freedom he had. And what young Wolfgang, a little German kid saw that cold December night in 1948, we can see clearly today in 2017: 
We can see foreigners putting their lives on the line for others, whether Captain Billy Phelps or the Berlin Airlift or the men and women of NATO's enhanced Forward Presence under German leadership in the Lithuanian woods right now;  
We can see U.S. support for NATO's enhanced Forward Presence extended out to 2020 for the security of the United States and all NATO nations; and 
We can see the $4.8 billion requested by President Trump last month for the European Reassurance Initiative, an increase over our commitment last year.  

Beyond any words in the newspapers, you can judge America by such actions. This is who we are. America, Germany, Europe, the West. We risk life so a child in Berlin can eat. We hunt terrorists in the dark so that they cannot murder innocent at concerts. And our nations stand together – democratic islands of stability in a world awash with change.

The Marshall Center embodies this cooperative mission. It is the only one of the U.S. Defense Department's five regional centers to operate jointly with a foreign government. It is one of many tangible manifestations of the enduring alliance between Germany and America.

In October last year, Germany and the United States signed a Memorandum of Agreement and reinforced the strong U.S.-German partnership here as Germany assumed an even greater role in the operation of this highly influential security study center.

As the Minister noted, over the years, over 12,000 individuals – civilian and military – from more than 150 countries have come to Garmisch to transcribe the lessons of history and apply them to today's challenges, from organized crime to terrorism, cybersecurity and regional threats.

The Marshall Center alumni comprise a network of thought leaders and practitioners serving as resources to one another and decision makers worldwide recognizing that no nation alone can provide for its security.

In 2014, for example, Romanian and Greek alumni contributed together to one of Europe's largest drug seizures, preventing $220 million in heroin from poisoning children and families across this continent. 

The Marshall Center faculty have also assisted Albania and Moldova in drafting their first ever national security strategy documents, critical for enabling security integration and contributing to regional stability.

The Center's faculty, staff, students, and alumni carry the legacy of this Center's namesake and for you students here today, when you return home, you have a golden opportunity to operate history's hinge, as well, just like George Marshall did…to close the door to war, exercising your moral authority and your generation's responsibility to protect freedom.  

Western values, respect for a rules based order and for national sovereignty, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the dignity of the human person, these are values worth defending.  

Marshall said, “Ideals have power to inspire,” and he also said “Discouraged people are in sore need of the inspiration of great principles” – principles represented today by you in this room.

I will conclude with a message to the nation choosing to challenge this secure and peaceful order. 

The United States seeks to engage with Russia and so does the NATO alliance. Russia must know both what we stand for and equally, what we will not tolerate. We stand for freedom and we will never surrender the freedom of our people or the values of our alliance that we hold dear.

I mentioned a moment ago that discouraged people are in need of inspiration and there are millions of people like that who live today in Russia. Their leader making mischief beyond Russian borders will not restore their fortunes or rekindle their hope. 

And while we will meet with any aggression with what Danish Defense Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen said was, “Determination, deterrence and purpose,” we will also watch for a Russia that honors its people enough to abide by international law and so wins for them peace the we all offer.

NATO's troops are deployed right now as we speak in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. And they demonstrate NATO's resolve. I am grateful to those host nations as well as to the framework nations, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and of course, Germany for sending their fine troops to lead in this wholly defensive mission, augmented by troops from ten other NATO nations.

This is a profound example of a United NATO. Our alliance has long been a stabilizing force in Europe. It helps preserve the rules based international order today. And it serves again now to keep the peace and defend the shared values that grew out of the enlightenment.

In closing, ladies and gentlemen, in 1961, a young academic and German immigrant to America, one who had served in the U.S. Army and was a veteran of World War II, paid a visit to the Missouri home of former President Harry Truman. The president was in his late 70's and long since retired. 

The academic was none other than Henry Kissinger and he asked Truman, what in his presidency had made him the most proud. Without a moment's hesitation, President Truman said to him that “we defeated our enemies and then brought them back to the community of nations as equals.” 

Today, we make our adversaries the same promise. Enemies of freedom will be frustrated or defeated. Supporters of international law will be brought into our community as equals. Our hands rest purposely on history's door and it depends on us to push it in the right direction.

Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen.

Estonia and Latvia!! The problem with being stuck on an island (even though Australia is a rather large one!) is that it's so far away from everything. I am so very jealous of your ability to jump in the car and drive to a new country, how wonderful that must be!
          Francia, Italia y Alemania abordarán crisis migratoria mañana en París   

PARÍS. Los ministros de Interior francés, italiano y alemán se reunirán el domingo por la noche en París para estudiar cómo ayudar a Italia a afrontar la llegada de migrantes a sus puertos, informó este viernes una fuente francesa conocedora del encuentro.

El ministro francés Gérard Collomb recibirá a sus homólogos italiano y alemán, Marco Minniti y Thomas de Maizière, y al comisario europeo de Migración, Dimitris Avramopoulos.

La reunión tendrá lugar después de que Italia amenazara el miércoles con negar la entrada a sus puertos a los barcos extranjeros que transporten a migrantes rescatados en el Mediterráneo.

“El objetivo es tener un enfoque coordinado y concertado sobre los flujos migratorios en el Mediterráneo central” y “ver cómo podemos ayudar mejor a los italianos”, antes de la reunión informal de ministros del Interior de la Unión Europea, prevista el 6 de julio en Tallin, en Estonia, dijo esa fuente a la AFP.

Italia reclama una mayor solidaridad de sus socios europeos ante la crisis migratoria. El país registró desde principios de año más de 73.300 llegadas de migrantes, un 14% más que en el mismo periodo de 2016. La mayoría de ellos procedían de Libia.

“Si seguimos con estas cifras, la situación no va a poder gestionarse incluso en un país grande y abierto como el nuestro”, declaró el presidente italiano Sergio Matterella en Ottawa.

El primer ministro Paolo Gentiloni pidió, por su parte, a los demás países de la UE que hagan una “contribución concreta” para ayudar a Roma.

La Comisión Europea incitó al Gobierno italiano a entablar un diálogo. “Entendemos las preocupaciones de Italia y respaldamos su llamamiento a cambiar la situación”, declaró el jueves una portavoz de la Comisión. Pero “todo cambio de política debería abordarse primero con los demás Estados miembros”, añadió.

El jueves, en Berlín, la canciller alemana y el presidente francés afirmaron estar dispuestos a apoyar más a Italia. “Desde Alemania, vamos a apoyar infaliblemente a Italia a enfrentar este problema”, declaró, sin precisar más, Angela Merkel.

“Tendremos que trabajar juntos en soluciones más eficaces que permitan a todos los solicitantes de asilo tener un trato humano y eficaz en un plazo más rápido vengan de donde vengan”, apuntó por su parte Emmanuel Macron, recordando, no obstante, que “más del 80% del fenómeno migratorio que describe el presidente del Consejo italiano son migraciones económicas”, que no comportan asilo político.

          Today's Headlines and Commentary    

Military Commissions Chief Prosecutor Brigadier General Mark Martins will not seek a capital prosecution at the proposed war crimes trial against Indonesian al-Qaeda leader Riduan Isamuddin, the Miami Herald reports. Isamuddin, commonly called Hambali, is accused of directing three simultaneous bombings in Bali in 2002 and of coordinating an attack in 2003 against the J.W. Marriott hotel in Jakarta. The attacks collectively caused more than 200 deaths. After holding him at a CIA black site from 2003 to 2006, the government later transferred Hambali to Guantanamo. The Senate Torture Report states that the CIA subjected Hambali to enhanced interrogation techniques. Pentagon prosecutors announced charges against Hambali on June 21, meaning Hambali is the first Guantanamo detainee charged in a military commission during the Trump administration. Pentagon Convening Authority Harvey Rishikof must now decide whether to proceed with charges.

The New York Times reports on a growing concern that the NSA cannot stop the spread of cyber weapons stolen from the agency in the aftermath of the NotPetya attack earlier this week. NotPetya, the second cyberattack in the past month believed to implement stolen NSA tools, first targeted systems in Ukraine on Tuesday before spreading to more than 60 countries, Reuters reports. Security experts believe that the attack was designed to disable key Ukrainian computer systems rather than to extort funds, according to the Times. The NSA has not acknowledged responsibility for developing the weapons used in this or prior attacks.

The State Department issued enforcement guidelines for President Trump’s immigration executive order after the Supreme Court partially lifted a lower-court injunction. The Court barred enforcement of the ban on those with a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” The guidelines limit bona fide relationships to close family, including “a parent (including parent-in-law), spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, [and] sibling, whether whole or half,” including step relationships. Notably, the guidelines exclude extended family members and relationships that are not legally formalized, such as fiancés.

NATO members will increase defense spending by 4.3 percent in 2017, according to an announcement yesterday by Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The pledge is consistent with the alliance’s progressive increases in defense spending since the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014, when members committed to raising annual defense spending to 2 percent of GDP by 2024. Five NATO member states currently meet this commitment (the U.S., the U.K., Poland, Estonia, and Greece). NATO members characterize the increase in defense spending as a response to security needs rather than as motivated by pressure from the Trump administration, which is unpopular with European constituencies. By contrast, Stoltenberg has pointed to the pledge as an express demonstration of the alliance’s commitment to taking on a greater share of defense spending in light of the Trump administration’s concerns.

Wednesday’s helicopter attack on the Supreme Court building in Venezuela has raised concerns that Venezuela may descend into civil war. Anti-government protests erupted in March following a Supreme Court ruling that weakened the opposition-dominated National Assembly. President Nicolas Maduro has called for a July 30 referendum on whether to create a new Constituent Assembly to replace the National Assembly and rewrite the Venezuelan constitution. The opposition criticized the proposed vote as a ploy to delay the presidential elections scheduled for October 2018 and announced its intention to boycott the vote.

North Korea issued a statement calling for the assassination of former South Korean President Park Geun-Hye and former director of the National Intelligence Service Lee Byung-ho nearly two months after accusing the pair of colluding with the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Relations between the North and South have strained in recent months after the North’s successive ballistic missile and nuclear tests.

Recent attacks on a district in northern Afghanistan by Islamic State fighters and former Taliban groups now aligned with the Islamic State suggest the group has expanded into a new geographical front, The New York Times reports. Fighters assaulted the Darzab district in the remote Jowzjan province and displaced the Taliban from its position of control. The Afghan government has deployed troops to the area to avoid losing control of the territory to the Islamic State.

The Senate Intelligence Committee seeks to complete its investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election by year’s end and to conclude witness interviews of approximately 90 congressmen before the August recess. Chairman Richard Burr made the announcement yesterday shortly after the committee concluded a hearing on Russian interference in European elections. The committee’s accelerated timeline contrasts with the approach taken by the House Intelligence Committee, which has not put forth a target end date for its investigation.

Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived today in Hong Kong in advance of the twentieth anniversary of the territory’s return to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997. Xi is expected to reaffirm China’s commitment to the “one country, two systems” framework that has provided for the city’s relative autonomy from Beijing following its handover from the British. His visit comes at a time of growing popular support for greater independence from the mainland.

          Antitrinitarios de la Reforma    
Unitarios y Antitrinitarios : La herencia de Servet
S


La muerte de Servet, trajo consigo justo el efecto contrario al que esperaban sus enemigos, pues si mientras el vivía, jamás intentó organizar ni formar ningún movimiento religioso, sino sencillamente aportar sus verdades redescubiertas a lo que el consideró como el camino a seguir para limpiar el cristianismo, y refinar las doctrinas de la reforma protestante, tras su muerte surgieron algunos grupos que influenciados por su enseñanza se abrieron camino en la difícil e intransigente Europa postmedieval.

Si Servet se enfrentó duramente a los líderes reformistas no fue porque este fuera su deseo, sino sencillamente porque estos líderes, orgullosos de su gran obra, no permitían que uno nuevo les abriera los ojos. No supieron reconocer en Servet a uno de los más grandes teólogos, cosa que si vieron otros menos cegados por el poder que estos.
Pero no fue fácil abrirse camino, las ideas antitrinitarias de Servet, fueron rechazadas hasta por líderes anabaptistas como Menno Simons, pese a que dentro de sus filas surgieron muchos de los que llegaron a formar parte de una nueva linea de cristianismo, la de los unitarios o antitrinitarios, que sin el apoyo que tuvieron lo arrianos de su día, volvieron a recuperar las ideas anteriores a Nicea.

Ya en el capítulo relacionado con los anabaptistas, se habló sobre David Joris y sus investigaciones relacionadas con la doctrina, que le llevaron en 1540 a rechazar la trinidad por no considerarla bíblica y a plantear el asunto ante un sínodo anabaptista. Pero los seguidores de Joris, fueron rechazados por los reformadores anabaptistas, como Menno Simons, muy perseguidos en Holanda, no solo por la inquisición española, sino por el mismo Calvino.

Sin embargo Joris vivió sus últimos días en Basilea, bajo el seudónimo de Juan de Brujas, actuando bajo una apariencia de ciudadano acorde a la normalidad calvinista, pero propagando sus ideas en secreto. Así logró formar una pequeña comunidad en la ciudad, donde sin embargo sus contemporáneos lo veían como un burgués rico, y conocido por sus obras benéficas a favor de los pobres.

Basilea al parecer en ese tiempo era una especie de paraíso de libertad, por lo menos antes de que Calvino instaurara su dogmatismo y férreo control. Allí se refugió durante un tiempo Erasmo de Rotterdam, y otro muchos pensadores y humanistas. También fue allí donde otro ilustre humanista de procedencia valdense, Sebastián Castellion, se refugió, después de enfrentarse a Calvino sobre un asunto doctrinal. Junto a David Joris, se postuló en defensa de la libertad de cultos, contra la intolerancia calvinista y católica. Al parecer Sebastián Castellion, quien saliera en defensa de Servet, estuvo familiarizado con los escritos de Servet y es posible que incluso de acuerdo con algunos de sus postulados.

Pero aparte del acercamiento y apoyo a Servet, Castellion también fue conocido por mantener con Calvino otra polémica controversia relacionada con otra doctrina proveniente del catolicismo y de fuerte arraigo en el protestantismo, la del sufrimiento del infierno de fuego. Si bien los protestantes rechazaron la existencia del purgatorio católico, mantuvieron vivas las llamas del infierno. Bien, pues Castellion puso al descubierto que la Biblia daba una idea distinta de la palabra "infierno", esto se entiende así al declarar que Jesucristo al morir, bajó al infierno, cuando dice la frase : "no dejarás abandonada mi alma en el infierno (Hechos Apóstoles 2:25-27 grieg. Hades, lat: inferno), lo cual significaba entonces que el infierno bíblico era el lugar de los muertos, donde hasta el hijo de Dios estuvo, y del cuál salió y no es por tanto un lugar de tormento destinado a los malhechores de donde es imposible su salida. Aquel pasaje que Calvino interpretaba como alegoría del sufrimiento que padeció Jesús, una interpretación equivocada, que ni siquiera el credo católico acepta, supuso otra controversia, aunque en este caso no supuso la muerte del humanista.

De esa manera Joris, compartió pensamientos con gente que buscaba el conocimiento y fue a través de Castellion como llegó a tener contacto con los postulados de Servet al respecto de la trinidad, que el también había descubierto por si mismo en la Biblia.
Los seguidores de Joris, los llamados joristas fueron perseguido más duramente si cabe que los propios anabaptistas, en algunos casos hasta denunciados por estos a las autoridades. Lo cual demuestra que si algo movilizaba o ponía en contra a toda la cristiandad de casi toda facción, era el asunto de la trinidad.

El mismo David Joris, al igual que Servet, fue activamente buscado y perseguido por católicos y protestantes; hasta su muerte en 1556, tuvo que ocultar su identidad debido a ello. Los joristas fueron obligados a replegarse hacia el Norte de Europa. En los países bajos, durante un tiempo buscaron refugio en Amberes y sobre todo en lugares fuera del territorio español, por la fijación que tenía contra ellos la inquisición española. Pero la iglesia reformada holandesa, no se quedaba atrás y también lanzó un fiero ataque contra estos. Adonde fueran, los problemas le seguían, por ejemplo en Frisia debido a un decreto dictado por la condesa Anee de Frisia Oriental, en 1545, se anunció que los joristas serían ahorcados si no dejaban inmediatamente el país. En cambio se les daba la oportunidad a otros anabaptistas pacifistas, entre ellos a los menonitas, para ser escuchados por el superintendente de Frisia y exponer sus convicciones para poder quedarse en el país.

Es difícil entender a que respondía ese odio y esa intransigencia por una sola doctrina, era obvio que para la mayoría de las facciones cristianas, tocar el tema trinitario, era como hablar contra Dios. Justamente lo contrario pensaban los unitarios, joristas y los seguidores de Servet, quienes entendían que una doctrina que explicara a Dios de manera tan confusa, no podía provenir mas que del enemigo de este.

Muchos joristas huyeron a Polonia, donde al parecer las autoridades tenían la reputación de ser mas tolerantes con las ideologías religiosas y surgió allí un renovado grupo de antitrinitarios.
A los joristas se les unieron otro grupo de antitrinitarios que surgieron de la disputa que hubo entre los anabaptistas, en tiempo también de Menno Simons frente a Adam Pastor, otro líder al que no quiso escuchar y que llegaron a expulsar por el mismo asunto.

Adam Pastor, un antiguo sacerdote católico en Aschendorf, Holanda y convertido al anabaptismo en 1533, estando al principio unido al grupo extremista en Münster, y siendo emisario de Juan de Leiden, pronto se dio cuenta de los excesos de estos y se apartó, uniéndose a los anabaptistas pacifistas, liderados por Menno. Hizo grandes progresos allí, siendo un gran estudioso de las escrituras, donde encontró ciertas discrepancias con respecto a la divinidad de Cristo, aceptada formalmente por los anabaptistas. Según el las escrituras no indican que por su propia voluntad Cristo se hizo carne y se convirtiera en Hijo de Dios, es más llegó a afirmar que ni siquiera antes de bajar a la tierra, se le podía considerar hijo, esta idea que no era nueva, pues ebionitas y otros judaizantes del siglo II, también afirmaron algo parecido pero la base para dichas ideas la extrajo de la interpretación de Romanos 1:3,4 donde se dice : acerca de su Hijo—quien, según la carne, era de la descendencia de David; y quien fue declarado Hijo de Dios con poder del Espíritu de santidad, por medio de su resurrección de entre los muertos, Jesucristo nuestro señor. 

Adam, entendió que Cristo no existía como Hijo de Dios antes de su venida al mundo, tal como parece indicar el texto bíblico y que con el poder del Espíritu Santo de Dios, llegó a serlo. Por lo tanto solo se le podía considerar divino después de su encarnación únicamente en el sentido de que Dios moraba en él.
A partir de ese postulado rechazó la doctrina de la consustancialidad Padre hijo, y rechazó que el Espíritu Santo se le pueda considerar una persona o ente, sino más bien es la fuerza activa que proviene de Dios, si es por tanto parte de Dios, pero no como ente o ser divino, sino como energía divina. Adam Pastor fue rechazado y expulsado de su comunidad, aunque continuó con su predicación, llegando a formar un importante grupo antitrinitario en Odenkirchen, predicando también en Münster a los desengañados de Leiden y compañía, muchos de sus seguidores, durante la intensa persecución que tanto la iglesia católica, como la reformada holandesa, hizo que estos fueran diezmados, uniéndose a los joristas, con quienes tenían afinidad, y encontrando refugio en Polonia.

Hemos hablado de un grupo llamado los amositas, (Unitas Fratum, hermanos moravos), quienes desde el siglo anterior, habían sobrevivido a duras persecuciones en Chequia, todavía a mediados del siglo XVI mantenían pequeños grupos, estos ya eran antitrinitarios antes que los joristas y los seguidores de Adam, y mucho antes que Servet escribiera sus libros. Pero con la venida del protestantismo, como ya hicieran valdenses y otros, hubo división en torno a si unirse a la reforma o no. Erasmo tuvo cierto contacto con estos, incluso los felicitó por su buen conocimiento bíblico, pero negándose a cualquier compromiso con ellos, como era costumbre en el. Lutero les animó a acercarse a ellos pero con ciertas condiciones, debían abandonar ciertas costumbres, entre ellas el celibato clerical que aún mantenían, y la practica de rebautizar o bautismo adulto que estos profesaban. Pero lo mas importante era también el ceder en cuanto a doctrina, sobre todo la trinidad. 

Aquello era inaceptable para los amositas, uno de los líderes amositas, conocido como el hermano Lucas, escribió un folleto en el que criticaba el bajo nivel de disciplina en la iglesia luterana. A la muerte de Lucas, le siguió otro líder mas dispuesto a ceder y unirse a los protestantes John Agusta, pero también fracasó su intento, el mismo Lutero le despidió :"Sea usted el apóstol de los bohemios, yo seré el apóstol de los alemanes. Haga como manden las circunstancias, nosotros haremos lo mismo aquí". Pero otros amositas con el tiempo optaron por unirse a la reforma anabaptista, mas acorde con sus ideas, aunque teniendo que ceder en el tema trinitario. Los que no, fueron duramente perseguidos y muchos de ellos terminaron emigrado a Polonia y pronto se unieron a los anabaptistas unitarios llegados allí, llegando a formar un grupo unido llamado "Hermanos Polacos" este conglomerado era el germen de un movimiento unitario al que pronto se le daría carácter de movimiento importante.

En 1515, nacía Giorgio Blandrata, médico y reformador religioso, hijo menor de Bernardino Blandrata, de la poderosa familia De Blandrate del Piamonte. A partir de 1533, por razones de profesión empezó a hacer visitas regulares a Transilvania, (actual Rumania). En uno de esos viajes tuvo contacto con las enseñanzas luteranas, con las que simpatizó solo en parte. Cuando llegaron a sus manos las obras de Servet, decidió profundizar en esto y darlas a conocer. En 1557 llegó Ginebra y allí entabló varias discusiones con Calvino, con quien por supuesto no congenió. Mas tarde en 1563 se trasladó a Transilvania de manera perramente, trabajando de funcionario en la corte del rey transilvano. Allí fue donde conoció a Ferenc Dávid, quien era líder de los calvinistas transilvanos. En varias conversaciones con este, basándose en los argumentos y razonamientos de Servet llegó a convencer a Ferenc Dávid de la falsedad de la doctrina trinitaria y ayudó a formar la Iglesia Unitaria húngara. Posteriormente se trasladó a Polonia, donde simpatizó con los movimientos unitarios del lugar, no logró unificar criterios entre ellos.

La unidad entre los unitarios parecía difícil, sobre todo cuando Blandrata discrepó con Ferenc Dávid, sobre si era correcto orar y adorar a Cristo, puesto que este último, enseñaba que ese honor solo debía ser dirigido a Dios.

Ferenc David, nacido en 1510, fue un reformador a la vez que humanista y defensor de las libertades religiosas, habiendo estudiado en Wittenberg, cuna del protestantismo, mas tarde aceptaría el calvinismo, dentro del cual se convertiría en el líder de estos en toda Transilvania. Pero al conocer a Blandrata y los textos y explicaciones de Servet, le convencieron para defender la idea de un Dios no trino, ni con tres partes, ni sustancias, pero fue más allá y proclamó a Cristo como un hombre, principal profeta de Dios, pero nunca con cualidades divinas, cercano al adopcionismo, al asegurar que fue recibido como hijo de Dios al ser bautizado. Eso de alguna manera fue lo que le distanció de Blandrata y este desde Polonia fundó sus propio sistema unitario, aunque más tarde ambos movimientos convergerían.

Su posición en la corte de Juan Segismundo, rey de Transilvania, le dio la oportunidad de convencer a este último para que se dictase el edicto de Torda en 1568, que se puede decir que fue el primer edicto de tolerancia religiosa, en la historia mundial moderna. Mayor que le edicto de Constantino en Roma en el 313, pues este no quiso establecer ninguna iglesia por encima de otras, simplemente daba libertad de predicación a católicos, luteranos, calvinistas y unitarios, además de los movimientos religiosos que después vinieran.

Pero tras la muerte del rey Juan Segismundo llegó la Contrarreforma a Transilvania y la paz religiosa que se disfrutaba, empezó a tambalearse de nuevo. Ferenc Dávid fue acusado a instancias del propio Blandrata de "innovación religiosa", un concepto extraño, pero que indicaba la idea de inventarse ideas propias y fomentar con engaños dichas ideas, por ello pudo ser juzgado en la libre Hungría y condenado a cadena perpetua, muriendo en prisión en el castillo de Déva en 1579.
Pero la Iglesia Unitaria por el fundada, siguió su curso y ha logrado sobrevivir, no sin dificultades, hasta nuestros días, sobre todo en la región de habla húngara de la actual Rumania y también en Hungría, aunque ambas iglesias están divididas organizativamente hablando, no en cuanto a doctrina. 

Actualmente cuenta con más de 70.000 miembros en Transilvania y unos 20.000 en Hungría. Teniendo un obispo a la cabeza de cada Iglesia, elegido por el Sínodo correspondiente.

Otro gran docto que se postuló como antitrinitario, fue Lelio Socino, un humanista italiano quién junto con su sobrino Fausto, desarrollaron una teología racionalista, que mas tarde se conoció como socianismo. Lelio había sido influido por los libros de Servet y fue uno de los principales introductores de sus escritos en el país. Tras su muerte, su sobrino Fausto Socino continuó con las investigaciones de su tío. Fausto nacido en Siena en 1534, proveniente de una familia acomodada, lo cual le permitió dedicarse a los estudios, comenzó a elaborar su teología, desde 1562 pero sin darla a conocer. Solo así se explica que durante doce años permaneciera sin problemas en la corte humanista de Florencia al servicio de Isabel de Medicis, hasta 1574.

Una vez que se sintió plenamente preparado, se dirigió a Basilea, eso fue en 1575, allí fue donde publicó sus dos principales obras, "Jesucristo Salvador" y "La condición del primer hombre antes de la caída", donde trató de dar una nueva idea sobre el carácter redentor de la muerte de Cristo, pero sin atribuirle a este el carácter divino que protestantes y católicos le dan. Su explicación a la negación de la doctrina trinitaria se encuentra resumida de esta manera : 

1°) Se enseña la existencia de tres personas divinas sin poder demostrar de una manera aceptable la unidad de Dios que las escrituras niegan; 2°) la idea de generación implica la profunda subordinación del ser engendrado, que no se debe su existencia a sí mismo y, por consiguiente, no puede ser Dios; 3°) el Cristo encarnado no puede ser a la vez infinito y finito, perfecto e imperfecto, impecable y tentado, que ruega y es rogado; la Escritura insiste en todas partes en la unidad rigurosa de Dios; 4°) cuando se dice que el Padre y el Hijo son uno, esto significa que están de acuerdo en la voluntad, en la intención y en la acción.

Basándose en las escrituras donde de alguna manera se da a entender que el propio Cristo rechazó la idea de ser igual a Dios, tal como aparece en la carta a los Filipenses : Haya, pues, en vosotros este sentir que hubo también en Cristo Jesús; que siendo en forma de Dios, no tuvo por usurpación ser igual a Dios; sin embargo, se anonadó a sí mismo, tomando forma de siervo, hecho semejante a los hombres; y hallado en la condición como hombre, se humilló a sí mismo, hecho obediente hasta la muerte, y muerte del madero. Por lo cual Dios también le ensalzó a lo sumo, y le dio un nombre que es sobre todo nombre; (Filipenses 2:5-9 VV). 

Así, Socino explica: que Cristo ha recibido dones extraordinarios que le colocan por encima de todos los hombres, y en este sentido, es Hijo único, portador de la Palabra, pero nunca Dios. Ha realizado perfectamente la voluntad de Dios y ha sabido enseñárnosla. Por eso es nuestro Salvador. Nos comunica la verdad del cielo, en donde reina desde su ascensión. Podemos, pues, llamar Dios a Cristo y adorarlo sin infringir la adoración del único Dios. (Jesucristo Salvador. F.Socino).

En 1579, Blandrata enterado de las creencias y la maestría de Socino al explicar los escritos de Servet, le mandó llamar desde Polonia, para de alguna manera combatir el antitrinitarismo extremo de Ferenc David. Porque si bien ambos líderes aceptaban la diferenciación entre Dios y Cristo, los unitarios de Blandrata entendían que si se le debía dar cierta adoración a Jesús, por la misma razón explicada en la Carta a Filipenses y por ejemplos de oraciones aparentemente dirigidas directamente a Cristo, mientras los partidarios de Ferenc David, enseñaban que la adoración y las oraciones debían ser dirigidas solamente al padre como Cristo mismo enseñó en el "Padre Nuestro". Socino en principio apoyó a Blandrata, aunque mas adelante rechazaría tales preceptos.

Por otro lado Socino estaba siendo acosado tanto por calvinistas como por la inquisición italiana, por ello se estableció en Polonia donde logró unificar a los muchos anabaptistas, amositas, joristas y otros grupos antitrinitarios, estableciendo lo que se ha llegado a denominar "La iglesia reformada menor", los enemigos sin embargo les llamaron socinianos.

Se ganó a los unitarios provenientes del anabaptismo de Adam Pastor y a los amositas, por su punto de vista pacifista y contrario a la unión de la iglesia y el estado, "El estado no es una institución cristiana", afirmaba, y los fieles no deben ser soldados ni siquiera en una guerra defensiva. Por ello pese a no ser rebautizado, fue bien aceptado entre los integrantes de los Hermanos Polacos. Para el, si bien no debía efectuarse el bautismo sin uso de la razón, no veía necesario volver a efectuarlo si lo hubiese recibido por parte de alguna iglesia protestante, puesto que de alguna manera el se consideraba un reformista mas. Con ese espíritu lideró una iglesia unitaria y pacifista, que fue en aumento y su prestigio como maestro y líder espiritual fue indiscutible. Lo cuál no significó que no sufriera, por doquier había grupos extremistas católicos, que a menudo usaban la violencia para atentar contra los que consideraban herejes, así sin la autorización del estado, un grupo de estudiantes católicos fanáticos, le increpó en 1594, dejándole una salud maltrecha, que le acompañó hasta su muerte.

El principal núcleo de la iglesia reformada menor, se estableció en la ciudad polaca de Rakow, cercana a Cracovia, que pronto se convirtió en el punto de encuentro de los reformistas unitarios, donde a menudo celebraban asambleas y como sucediera en Transilvania, fue refugio para los perseguidos de toda Europa.

Socino se dedicó los últimos años de su vida a escribir una especie de libro de normas y métodos, sonde se resumía de forma oficial toda la doctrina de los reformadores menores, fue conocido como el catecismo de Rakow, pero murió en Marzo de 1604. Al siguiente año se publicó el Catecismo de Rakow, concluido por sus más cercanos colaboradores. Primero fue publicado en Polaco, posteriormente en 1608 en Alemán para los numerosos miembros de los reformistas menores de Bohemia y Alemania, y posteriormente en Latín desde 1609.

También de entre la Iglesia ortodoxa, surgieron reformadores antitrinitarios, uno de los más celebres fue el bielorruso Zymon Budny, (conocido como Simón Budny), un teólogo nacido en 1533, gran conocedor de las escrituras y del latín, quién tras convertirse por un tiempo al calvinismo, pronto abrazó las enseñanzas de Socino y fue uno de los más acérrimos defensores de la doctrina sociniana. Jugó un papel importante en la traducción de la Biblia tanto al polaco como al ruso. Perfectamente podía haber sido el sucesor de Socino de no haber muerto en 1593, pero a el se le debe haber sido impulsor de la obra en el báltico, llegando a establecer núcleos unitarios en Lituania y Estonia.
Publicó en bielorruso un texto de estudio religioso llamado "Katechizis" en cuyo prólogo animó a los señores feudales bielorrusos a usar su lengua natal, acusando al mismo tiempo a la Iglesia ortodoxa de ignorancia y exceso de conservadurismo, junto a otros reformadores socinianos como Martín Czechowic fue impulsor de unitarismo en Polonia, Bielorrusia y las tierras bálticas, llegando hasta Rusia.

Con el tiempo, la paz y tolerancia de Polonia, cambió por persecución bajo una nueva linea de gobernantes como Segismundo III y Juan Casimiro, sus templos fueron destruidos y muchos tuvieron que emigrar para salvar la vida. Algunos reformadores menores o socinianos lo hicieron a Hungría, otros a los países bajos, uniendose a los arminianos.

Pero lejos de ser erradicado, el movimiento se extendió por todas partes, en parte gracias a los que huyeron a Inglaterra, donde una importante comunidad de socinianos fundó el llamado unitario, que se mantiene como ideología hasta el día de hoy.

John Biddle, nacido en 1615, fue quién estableció de forma organizada la conocida como iglesia unitaria, conociendo el antitrinitarismo a través de los socinianos huidos de Polonia, llegó a convertirse en defensor de la causa antitirnitaria, lo que le costó duros encierros por causa de la intolerancia anglicana. En 1644 escribió "Doce Argumentos Sacados de Escritura", un tratado donde argumentaba eficazmente mostrando que bíblicamente la divinidad del Espíritu Santo, no es enseñanza cristiana. Cuando ese manuscrito llegó a las manos de las autoridades clericales, Biddle fue arrestado por primera vez, estando en prisión por algunos años.

Durante los años siguientes fue duramente perseguido y sus escritos prohibidos. Entre salidas y entradas en prisión, sin embargo valerosamente publicaba obras en las que atacaba la doctrina de la trinidad, criticaba a la iglesia y predicaba sus enseñanzas logrando formar un grupo de oración. Aunque murió en prisión, logró mantener un pequeño grupo de unitarios. Pero fue en 1774, cuando otro pastor anglicano Theophilus Lindsey estableció de forma definitiva la primera iglesia unitaria inglesa en Londres.

Más tarde otros clérigos anglicanos como Joseph Priestley, quien además era científico, descubridor del oxígeno y otros gases, impulsor de las bebidas carbonatadas, también fue teólogo y racionalista ilustrado, entendía que "la razón", insuflada en la mente humana por el creador, no era compatible con una idea de un Dios trino, pues nunca podía ser razonada con la lógica. Durante la revolución francesa emigró a América. Y estableció en América, junto a otros antitrinitarios, la Iglesia unitaria de Filadelfia en 1796.

Pero el unitarismo americano llegó a ser influenciado por otras corrientes ideológicas ajenas al cristianismo, así en el siglo XIX, el filósofo Ralph Waldo Emerson, introdujo filosofía hinduistas en el unitarismo, creando una división y formando una corriente llamada trascendentalismo, mas ligada a experiencias místicas que al conocimiento racional.

Otras influencias como el humanismo, llegaron a convertir en unitario en algo cada vez más parecido a una filosofía que a una religión. De hecho ciertos grupos unitarios norteamericanos iban dejando de ser iglesias exclusivamente cristianas o protestantes para convertirse progresivamente en iglesias abiertas, sin credo y cada vez más multiconfesional, que desde 1961 se denomina Unitarismo universalista.

 Solamente el unitario hungaro-rumano, mantiene sus bases doctrinales y religiosas originales, lo cual no significa que el antitrinitarismo haya quedado reducido a eso, las ideas antitrinitarias, han ido surgiendo a los largo de todas las épocas en el cristianismo y volverán a surgir, personajes tales como el poeta inglés John Milton, el filosofo John Locke, el científico y matemático Isaac Newton, defendieron y escribieron al respecto, al igual que lo hiciera Servet y con el tiempo otros grupos religiosos como la Iglesia de Dios Abrahámicos, los Cristadelfianos, o los Testigos de Jehová, defenderán también estos preceptos antitrinitarios hasta el día de hoy, de ellos se hablará en posteriores capítulos.

          Líderes de todo el mundo se reúnen para despedir al excanciller alemán Helmut Kohl   
Los dirigentes políticos mundiales se despedirán este sábado del ex canciller alemán Helmut Kohl, fallecido el pasado el pasado 16 de junio, con un homenaje en la sede del Parlamento Europeo en Estrasburgo al que acudirán Don Juan Carlos y Doña Sofía junto al expresidente del Gobierno Felipe González. En cambio, finalmente no participará en esta ceremonia el presidente del Gobierno, Mariano Rajoy, aunque el ministro de Exteriores, Alfonso Dastis, acompañará a los Reyes eméritos. Kohl, que fue jefe del Gobierno alemán entre 1982 y 1998, fue uno de los grandes impulsores de la UE y es considerado 'padre' de la reunificación alemana. La ceremonia de homenaje a Kohl, organizada en un lugar que representa el corazón del proyecto europeo, arrancará a las 11.00 horas y concluirá hacia las 13.00 horas. Los restos mortales del ex canciller alemán serán recibidos a las 10.35 horas por el presidente de la República Francesa, Emmanuel Macron, y por su viuda, Maike Kohl-Ritcher, poco después de que comiencen a llegar las delegaciones. El libro de condolencias podrá firmarse en el exterior del salón protocolario, antes del arranque de la ceremonia oficial a las 11.00 horas. Emotivo homenaje La ceremonia comenzará con el traslado de los restos mortales de Kohl a la Cámara del Parlamento Europeo, cubiertos por una bandera europea, por parte de ocho miembros del 'Wachbataillon' (Guardia de honor) alemán que estarán acompañados por el Eurocuerpo. Los presidentes de las tres instituciones europeas, Jean-Claude Juncker (Comisión Europea), Donald Tusk (Consejo Europeo) y Antonio Tajani (Parlamento Europeo) pronunciarán a continuación los discursos oficiales, a los que seguirá la proyección del vídeo sobre la figura del ex canciller, Helmut Kohl, "un gran europeo". A título personal y a petición de la viuda de Kohl, pronunciarán discursos de despedida el expresidente del Gobierno Felipe González, el expresidente de Estados Unidos Bill Clinton, así como el primer ministro israelí, Benjamin Netanyahu, y su homólogo ruso, Dimitri Medvedev. Por último, intervendrán el presidente francés, Emmanuel Macron, y la canciller alemana, Angela Merkel. La ceremonia finalizará con la Orquesta de la Universidad de Estrasburgo tocando el himno nacional alemán y el himno europeo, acompañada por el Coro Filarmónico de la ciudad. Los restos mortales de Kohl serán después trasladados desde el Parlamento Europeo a la ciudad alemana de Speyer, donde será enterrado tras una misa funeral en la catedral. A Estrasburgo se desplazarán numerosas personalidades políticas para dar su último adiós al ex canciller alemán, incluidos los primeros ministro de Reino Unido, Theresa May, Bélgica, Charles Michel, Países Bajos, Mark Rutte, Hungría, Viktor Orban, así como los primeros ministros de Austria, Bulgaria, República Checa, Eslovenia, Luxemburgo, Suecia, Letonia, Lituania y Estonia, así como el presidente de Polonia. También acudirán tres expresidentes de la Comisión Europea Jacques Santer, Romano Prodi y José Manuel Durao Barroso, la mayor parte de los miembros de la Comisión actual, así como numerosos eurodiputados y un gran número de dirigentes políticos alemanes. «Alemán y un patriota europeo» El exsecretario de Estado estadounidense, Henry Kissinger, también acudirá a dar el último adiós al ex canciller alemán, así como el presidente ucraniano, Viktor Poroshenko. «Vamos a decir adiós a mi amigo Helmut Kohl en Estraburgo y esto es una manera de elogiar el trabajo de toda su vida», ha subrayado este viernes Juncker en rueda de prensa conjunta con el primer ministro estonio, Jüri Ratas, desde Tallín. Juncker ha recordado que Kohl era «alemán y un patriota europeo y nunca encontró ninguna contradicción entre el patriotismo europeo y el patriotismo alemán» y ha justificado el homenaje como «un gesto» a «un ciudadano honorífico» como también fueron Jean Monet y Jacques Delors, padres fundadores del proyecto europeo. Desde Tallín, el jefe del Ejecutivo comunitario también ha puesto en valor el gran empuje de Kohl a la ampliación de la UE a los países del este de Europa. «Esto no es algo que hubiera ocurrido sin Helmut Kohl. Esta parte de Europa también debe ser agradecida a Helmut Kohl», ha dicho. «En Estonia estamos inmensamente agradecidos. Durante su mandato, Estonia fue invitada a las negociaciones con la UE y reconoció la independencia de Estonia», ha asegurado el jefe del Ejecutivo estonio.

          Digital skills: who is being left behind? | EURACTIV   
Some people are being left behind by the digital revolution. But how do you help people who don’t want to be helped? continues EURACTIV.

EU countries must improve their digital education to close Europe's widening skills gap.

The digital transformation is spreading through the European economy like a tsunami. Some people are riding that wave — with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) being some of the most frequent beneficiaries — while others are being crushed under it. 

This week, Facebook and The Lisbon Council brought founders of successful start-ups from across Europe together at an event in Brussels to connect with EU lawmakers. At the Future of Business Summit, the SMEs were asked what has worked for them to get their businesses off the ground, and what has gotten in the way.

One thing became clear during the course of the day’s discussions: to be successful in 2017, an SME must embrace new digital technologies. What also became clear was that some good ideas are getting lost because the people with the ideas are lacking those digital skills.

Kaja Kallas, a liberal Estonian member of the European Parliament, revealed that she has recently conducted a survey in Estonia and found that there is still resistance to picking up digital skills – even among SMEs.

“Very often it comes down to whether CEOs of the companies really see that this is for them,” she said. In her survey of Estonian SMEs and their digital knowledge, she found that the same people who ranked their technical knowledge as low also indicated that they have a low interest in learning new digital skills. “How do you help people that don’t want to be helped?” she asked.

Eva Maydell, a Bulgarian centre-right MEP, agreed. She told the SMEs that some countries are doing more than others to encourage this learning. For instance, she said, Belgium has set aside €18 million to teach people digital skills. She asked the European Commission to do more to facilitate digital training.

Parents' presence and parent-infant closeness in 11 neonatal intensive care units in six European countries vary between and within the countries.

Acta Paediatr. 2017 Jun;106(6):878-888

Abstract
AIM: Little is known about the amount of physical parent-infant closeness in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), and this study explored that issue in six European countries.
METHODS: The parents of 328 preterm infants were recruited in 11 NICUs in Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Norway, Italy and Spain. They filled in daily diaries about how much time they spent in the NICU, in skin-to-skin contact (SSC) and holding their babies in the first two weeks of their hospitalisation.
RESULTS: The parents' NICU presence varied from a median of 3.3 (minimum 0.7-maximum 6.7) to 22.3 (18.7-24.0) hours per day (p < 0.001), SSC varied from 0.3 (0-1.4) to 6.6 (2.2-19.5) hours per day (p < 0.001) and holding varied from 0 (0-1.5) to 3.2 (0-7.4) hours per day (p < 0.001). Longer SSC was associated with singleton babies and more highly educated mothers. Holding the baby for longer was associated with gestational age. The most important factor supporting parent-infant closeness was the opportunity to stay overnight in the NICU. Having other children and the distance from home to the hospital had no impact on parent-infant closeness.
CONCLUSION: Parents spent more time in NICUs if they could stay overnight, underlining the importance that these facilities play in establishing parent-infant closeness.

          Estonia asume la presidencia de la UE, centrada en la unidad de Europa y en la agenda digital   

Estonia asumirá desde este sábado y por primera vez en su historia la presidencia de turno de la Unión Europea, que ostentará durante los próximos seis meses, y centrará sus trabajos en conseguir que el bloque comunitario esté "más unido" y sea "más fuerte", así como en impulsar la evolución de la economía y la agenda digital.

          Një lajm i mirë nga presidenca e re: Jemi pro zgjerimit të BE-së   

“Estonia ka bërë një rrugë të gjatë që kur u bë anëtare e Bashkimit Evropian në vitin 2004. Reformat e ndërmarra kërkonin vendime të vështira. Megjithatë, rëndësia e tyre u plotësua me unanimitet ndërpartiak në parlament dhe në qeveri, si dhe u kuptua dhe u pranua nga qytetarët. Anëtarësimi në BE ka ofruar për estonezët […]

          What next for Eastern Europe?   
While President Trump tweets, the United States and Russia drift towards war over Syria, and the new Thirty Years War between Shi'ite and Sunni continues on many fronts, another critical drama is playing out in the Eastern half of the European continent.  I find it particularly interesting because it is a replay of the drama I described about 40 years ago in my first book, Economic Diplomacy and the Origins of the Second World War, which is linked at left and available as an e-book.

For the first few centuries of the modern era the peoples of Eastern Europe lived under large empires.  The Ottoman Empire had reached Europe in the 15th century and eventually included what is now Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Rumania, some of the nations of the former Yugoslavia, and Hungary.  The Tsar of Russia ruled what are now the Baltic States and, by the 19th century, Poland.  The Holy Roman Empire--which in 1806 became the Austrian Empire, and in 1867 the Austro-Hungarian Empire--included parts of Poland and the present-day Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia and Slovenia.  All these peoples, to varying degrees, developed nationalist movements during the 19th century.

The enormous strain of the First World War proved too much not only for the Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires, but also for the German Empire.  The Allies--France, Britain, Italy and eventually the US as well--sponsored the claims of some of the national movements in their territory.  In January 1918, in his Fourteen Points, Woodrow Wilson endorsed an independent Poland and autonomy (not independence) for the peoples of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires.  When those nations collapsed ten months later, various national movements proclaimed new states.

As the brilliant but eccentric English historian A. J. P. Taylor noted in 1961, the post-1919 settlement in Eastern Europe reflected the astonishing fact that both Germany and Russia had been defeated. Only that allowed for the re-creation of an independent Poland, the new states of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia,a larger Rumania, independent Poland and Finland, and the three Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.  It seemed in 1918-9 that things might go even further and that Ukraine might become independent as well, but the Bolsheviks managed to secure control over it in the Russian civil war.  These states were economically and politically weak.  Nearly all of them initially formed some kind of democratic government, encouraged down that path by the western powers.

In the short run, several of the new states--Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Romania--were threatened by Hungary, which had lost huge territories at the peace conference, while in the long run Czechoslovakia and Poland had to worry about a resurgent Germany. France, eager to cement its status as the leading power in Europe, offered all those states some kind of alliance.  Clearly the French would have trouble defending them once the Germans or Russians regained their military strength, but the French were counting on keeping the Germans weak.  The alliances faced no serious threats until after the rise of Hitler.

By then all these countries had undergone profound political changes.  While all of them had begun as democracies, only Czechoslovakia, Finland and the Baltic States were still electing their governments by the early 1930s--the rest had come under some form of authoritarian rule.  The agricultural states among them, as I showed in my book, came under German influence after 1935 because the Germans, desperate for food, offered them a market for their produce.  In 1938 Hitler managed to destroy Czechoslovakia when the French abandoned their alliance.  In 1939-40, Hitler and Stalin concluded the Nazi-Soviet Pact. They partitioned Poland and the Soviets incorporated the Baltic States.  Hungary and Rumania became allies of Hitler while Yugoslavia was occupied by the Italians and the Nazis.  In 1945,  the whole region (except Finland) came under Soviet occupation and the USSR installed Communist governments.

The collapse of the USSR in 1991--77 years after the start of the First World War--started this process over again.  Once again, as in 1919, the entire region was liberated from foreign rule.  This time the proliferation of new states has gone much further, with Czechoslovakia and former Yugoslavia giving way to no less than 8 new states, and not only the Baltic States, but also Ukraine and Belarus, becoming independent.  Once again the new states established various forms of democracy.  And once again, powerful nations from outside the region offered them alliances. NATO, led by the US, offered membership to virtually every new state in the region, including the Baltic states--after initially promising the new Russian government not to do so.  The EU also offered many of them membership, choosing to ignore the enormous economic and cultural differences that still divide Europe somewhere around the frontiers of Germany and Poland.

Germany is no longer an imperialist nation, although it leads the EU and played a key role in its enlargement.  Russia once again went through a chaotic period but by 2000 it was recovering its strength under Vladimir Putin.  He is clearly determined to reassert Russian influence--if not more--over many of the states of the former USSR.  Belarus lost any real independence very quickly, and Putin is actively contesting the West in a bid for influence in Ukraine, and using the Russian military at the border to do so. He also very obviously has designs on the Baltic states, which are extremely vulnerable militarily.  And while Putin cannot offer these states markets the way the Germans did 80 years ago, he can provide them with energy.

And once again, democracy has proven fragile in Eastern Europe.  Rightist parties now lead the governments of Hungary, Poland, and some of the other states of the region. The governments of the Czech Republic and Slovakia are weak and subject to corruption and outside influence.  These nations face a choice between  western-style democracy--which is having enormous problems in the west--and Russian-style authoritarianism.  It is not at all clear which path they shall take.

Only a gigantic war settled the question of Eastern Europe's future 80 years ago.  Such a war does not seem in prospect now, but limited wars, such as a lightning Russian occupation of one or more Baltic states, cannot be ruled out.  Russian and NATO aircraft are constantly confronting one another in the region.  The Russians also seem to be using cyberwar against Ukraine, and they may use it elsewhere. To reach a new equilibrium diplomatically would require a level of statesmanship which is not apparent on the world scene.  Nearly thirty years ago, when the Soviet empire collapsed, I commented frequently that this time, Eastern Europe had taken a new shape without a new world war.  Now it seems that the process may involve a larger conflict--albeit of a possibly different kind.
          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...


          Human Rights Watch Country Profiles: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity   

The following are excerpts from the Human Rights Watch 2017 World Report  that relate to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. The report, released in January 2017, documented events of 2016. In some cases, we have added updates from the first half of 2017.

The countries are all listed below in alphabetical order. This compilation is not comprehensive. If a country is not listed, that means there was no mention of LGBTI/SOGI issues for that country in the 2017 World Report. For example, many of the smaller Caribbean countries and some African countries are omitted due to research limitations, but most have anti-LGBT laws on the books and pervasive homophobia and transphobia. On the other hand, several countries that are not included here made progress in the 2016-2017 period: Belize, Nauru and the Seychelles all decriminalized consensual same-sex conduct, for example. Human Rights Watch has only recently begun investigating the rights of intersex people, so there are few references to intersex rights.

This is a living document which will be updated regularly to reflect new events and further Human Rights Watch research.

Last updated: June 23, 2017

***

Argentina

In 2010, Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage. The Civil Marriage Law allows same-sex couples to enter into civil marriages and affords them the legal protections of marriage enjoyed by opposite sex couples, including adoption rights and pension benefits. Since 2010, nearly 15,000 same-sex couples have married nationwide. In 2012, the landmark Gender Identity Law established the right of individuals over the age of 18 to choose their gender identity, undergo gender reassignment, and revise official documents without any prior judicial or medical approval.

Armenia

Activists reported that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LBGTI) people face discrimination, harassment, and violence. The government has not addressed hate speech or discrimination against LGBTI people. Gender identity and sexual orientation are not included as protected grounds in anti-discrimination or hate speech laws, limiting legal recourse for many crimes against LGBTI people. Following the October 2015 Rainbow forum, organized by Armenian LGBTI-friendly groups to discuss protection and promotion of minority rights, anonymous people targeted some participants with intimidation and threats, mostly on social media, including to burn and kill them. Authorities refused to launch a criminal investigation into the threats, citing lack of evidence. In June 2016, the LGBT rights group, PINK Armenia, published a survey revealing that 90 percent of the population is hostile to LGBTI people and support limits on their rights. In July 2016, PINK Armenia released a report documenting 46 cases of violence and discrimination against LGBTI people in 2015. The government has not taken meaningful steps to combat stereotypes and discrimination against LGBTI people.

Australia

Australia does not recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry. The Australian government announced a plebiscite on the right of same-sex couples to marry, but political opponents blocked it, arguing a plebiscite is expensive and wasteful and that the issue should be determined by a parliamentary free vote.

Australia continued its policy of intercepting asylum seekers and forcibly transferring them to Nauru and, until 2016, to Manus Island in Papua New Guinea. Asylum seekers or refugees perceived to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or intersex (LGBTI) face harassment and abuse despite the recent decriminalization of same-sex conduct in Nauru. In Papua New Guinea, such conduct remains criminalized.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh witnessed a spate of violent attacks against secular bloggers, academics, gay rights activists, foreigners, and members of religious minorities in 2016. Prominent gay activists Xulhaz Mannan, the founder of Roopbaan, Bangladesh’s first lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) magazine, and Mahbub Rabby Tonoy, the general secretary of the group, were  murdered in April. Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) claimed responsibility for the killings. Fearing for their lives, many LGBT activists sought temporary refuge outside the country.

“Carnal intercourse against the order of nature” carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. In May 2017, police raided a private gathering of gay and bisexual men, and allegedly paraded them in front of media, exposing them to their families and the public. Authorities said they declined to press charges under the colonial-era sodomy law because they did not catch the men in the act of sexual intercourse. The government has twice rejected recommendations to repeal the colonial-era law during its Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council. The Bangladesh cabinet in 2014 declared legal recognition of a third gender category for hijras—a traditional cultural identity for transgender people who, assigned male at birth, do not identify as men—but the absence of a definition of the term or procedure for gaining recognition of third gender status led to abuses in implementation of the legal change. In June and July 2015, a group of hijras were subjected to harassment and invasive and abusive physical examinations at a government hospital as a requirement to join a government employment program. The Bangladesh National Human Rights Commission in 2017 agreed with LGBT civil society groups to establish a desk at the commission for reporting SOGI-related issues.

Belarus

Parliament adopted a vaguely worded bill in May 2016 on “protecting children from information harmful for their health and development.” These provisions may be used to restrict dissemination of neutral or positive information about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as “discrediting the institution of the family.”

Bolivia

In May 2016, the Plurinational Assembly passed a bill that allows people to revise the gender noted on their identification documents without prior judicial approval. Same-sex couples in Bolivia are not allowed to marry or engage in civil unions. The 2009 constitution defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo Open Centre, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights organization, documented 23 cases of hate speech and incitement of violence and hate and two crimes and incidents motivated by prejudice on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity in the first three months of 2016. The reaction of authorities to these incidents is generally inadequate. There was no progress in police investigations into the 2014 attack on a film festival that Sarajevo Open Centre organized.

In its annual progress on Bosnia and Herzegovina published in November, the European Commission highlighted the failure of authorities to amend the constitution, in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights and to implement rulings by the Constitutional Court. The report also identified inadequate legal protection for LGBTI persons and the failure of authorities to protect adequately the rights of minorities and to ensure media freedom.

Brazil

Brazil’s Supreme Court approved same-sex marriage in 2011 and it upheld the right of same-sex couples to adopt children in 2015. But the Chamber of Deputies was, at time of writing, debating a bill that would define a family as a union between a man and a woman. The national Human Rights Ombudsman’s Office received 1,983 complaints of violence, discrimination, and other abuses experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in 2015. In the first half of 2016 the ombudsman received 879 such complaints.

Burma

Burma’s national penal code criminalizes consensual same-sex behavior between adult men. In recent years police have arrested gay men and transgender women assembling in public places, and politicians have called for the “education” of gay people.

Cameroon

Cameroon’s penal code punishes “sexual relations between persons of the same sex” with up to five years in prison. The law is regularly enforced, and in previous years, the Cameroonian authorities have subjected men arrested under this law to forced anal examinations. Although the number of arrests appeared to decrease for several years, activists reported a new uptick in arrests and prosecutions in 2016.

Chile

A “civil union” bill presented by former President Sebastián Piñera in 2011 that provides legal recognition and protection for same-sex couples became law in April 2015 and went into effect in October 2015. In September 2016, the Senate Human Rights Commission approved a bill to recognize the gender identity of transgender people, with a Senate vote expected in December.

China

China has no law protecting people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, and there is no legal recognition of same-sex partnership. Possibly because their activism is not considered threatening to the state, LGBT individuals enjoyed some success advancing legal cases in 2016. In January, a Hunan court heard a case filed by Sun Wenlin against the local Bureau of Civil Affairs, which had refused to marry Sun and his male partner. Though the court ruled against Sun in April, his case—the first gay marriage lawsuit accepted by Chinese courts—attracted wide media attention. In June, a Henan court accepted a case filed by Yu Hu against a mental health hospital that had subjected him to 19 days of involuntary “therapy” to “cure” his homosexuality. Also in June, a Guangdong university student, Qiu Bai, sued the provincial education department over textbooks that depict homosexuality as an illness. Qiu filed a similar suit in 2015, though she withdrew it later because the department had promised to look into the matter. She decided to sue again after the authorities’ pledge failed to materialize. In June, China voted against a UN resolution creating an expert post dedicated to addressing violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Colombia

In September 2016, the Council of the State—one of Colombia’s high courts—annulled the 2012 re-election of Alejandro Ordoñez as the country’s inspector general and dismissed him from office. Under Colombian law, the inspector general is charged with protecting human rights, but during his seven years in office, Ordoñez repeatedly sought to undermine the rights of women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.

In recent years, authorities in Colombia have taken several steps to recognize the rights of LGBT people. In June 2015, the Justice Ministry issued a decree allowing people to revise the gender noted on their identification documents without prior judicial approval. In November 2015, the Constitutional Court ruled that sexual orientation could not be used to prohibit someone from adopting a child, although a legislative proposal to hold a referendum on this issue remained pending at time of writing. In April 2016, the Constitutional Court upheld the right of same-sex couples to marry. In October 2016, FARC leaders met with conservative politicians and agreed to promote a definition of the family as formed by a man and a woman. The FARC backtracked after meeting with LGBT representatives days later. Conservative politicians and evangelist leaders had attacked the peace agreement claiming that it would “destroy families.” Between January and June 2016, the Ombudsman’s Office received 89 reports of cases of violence against LGBTI people.

Cote d’Ivoire

No law prohibits discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity, or intersex status. Côte d’Ivoire does not criminalize same-sex conduct, but the criminal code establishes higher penalties for same-sex couples convicted of public acts of indecency. Two men were in November convicted of public indecency and sentenced to three-month prison terms after being accused of same-sex sexual acts. Two gay men were assaulted in June 2016 after a photo was published of them signing a book of condolences to the victims of a shooting at a gay nightclub in Florida, US.

Croatia

In February, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) ruled that Croatia discriminated on grounds of sexual orientation against a woman from Bosnia and Herzegovina, by denying her the right to a residence permit in Croatia to join her female partner.

Ecuador

In 2016, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled against Ecuador in a case determining that it is discriminatory to punish officers who allegedly have homosexual sex on military installations.

Egypt

Sexual relations outside marriage are criminalized. Since 2013, authorities have pursued a campaign to intimidate, track, and arrest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, including entrapment using social media applications. Police regularly used forced anal examinations in prosecutions of those suspected of homosexual sex. Solidarity With Egypt LGBTQ+, an advocacy group, said it had recorded 114 criminal investigations involving 274 LGBT individuals launched between the end of 2013 and November 2016, 66 of which involved the authorities’ use of social media.

Estonia

The government failed to adopt amendments that would allow the Co-Habitation Act to fully enter into force in 2016. The act is progressive legislation that extends the rights of marriage to unmarried—including same-sex—couples, encompassing, among other things, child adoption and property rights.

Gambia

The government continued to resist calls to repeal laws that criminalize homosexuality, including an October 2014 law that introduced a series of new “aggravated homosexuality” offenses that impose sentences of up to life in prison. The criminalization of same-sex conduct leaves lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Gambians at risk of arbitrary arrest and detention, although fewer arrests and physical abuse of LGBT Gambians were reported in 2016.

Georgia

In August, President Giorgi Margvelashvili blocked a referendum bid on defining marriage as a union of a man and a woman, saying that the issue is already covered in the civil code. Kvirikashvili vowed to pursue a constitutional definition of marriage after the October elections, arguing that this would help counter alleged Western efforts to spread same-sex marriage “propaganda” in Georgia. Local rights groups feared this effort would further marginalize the LGBT community and intensify anti-LGBT prejudice. Authorities declined a request by LGBT activists to hold an event to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) on Tbilisi’s main thoroughfare, stating it was already booked for a procession by Orthodox groups to mark Family Day, an annual event established by the Orthodox Church in 2014. Activists refused to celebrate IDAHO in the alternative venue offered. The Women’s Initiatives Supporting Group (WISG), a local LGBTI rights group, said it documented almost 20 cases of attacks against transgender people in 2016. In October, a transgender woman was beaten and stabbed in what rights groups suspected was a hate crime. Police arrested a suspect on attempted murder charges, and the public defender urged authorities to examine a possible hate motive.

Honduras

Rampant crime and impunity for human rights abuses remain the norm in Honduras. Despite a downward trend in recent years, the murder rate is among the highest in the world. Journalists, peasant activists, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals are among those most vulnerable to violence.

In June 2016, several United Nations agencies working in Honduras urged the government to investigate killings of LGBTI activists and noted that sexual violence against LGBTI individuals forces them into “internal displacement” or to flee the country in search of international protection.

Hungary

In August 2016, a lower court sentenced a right-wing extremist to 10 years’ imprisonment for violent attacks between 2007 and 2009, including throwing Molotov cocktails at the homes of socialist MPs and an attack on a gay bar in Budapest.

In July, the ECtHR ruled that Hungary had arbitrarily detained an Iranian gay man and failed to take into account his vulnerability in detention arising from his sexual orientation.

India

In February 2016, the Supreme Court of India allowed a challenge to section 377 of the penal code to proceed, referring the case to a five-judge bench. The colonial-era provision, which the court had upheld in 2013, criminalizes same-sex relations between adults. In June, several well-known LGBT professionals filed a petition in Supreme Court arguing that section 377 violates the right to life and personal liberty, but the Supreme Court deferred the petition to the Chief Justice. In August, the government introduced a new bill in parliament on the rights of transgender persons. The bill was flawed, however, by provisions that were inconsistent with the 2014 Supreme Court ruling that recognized transgender individuals as a third gender and found them eligible for quotas in jobs and education.

India’s voting record on rights issues at the UN was disappointing. In July, the government abstained on a resolution that created a UN expert post to address discrimination against LGBT persons and voted in favor of amendments to weaken the mandate, saying India’s Supreme Court was still to decide on the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights.

Indonesia

Starting in January 2016, high-ranking Indonesian officials made a series of vitriolic anti-LGBT statements and policy pronouncements, fueling increased threats and at times violent attacks on LGBT activists and individuals. In some cases, the threats and violence occurred in the presence, and with the tacit support, of government officials or security forces. State institutions, including the National Broadcasting Commission and the National Child Protection Commission, issued censorship directives banning information and broadcasts that portrayed the lives of LGBT people as “normal” as well as so-called propaganda about LGBT lives. Ministries proposed discriminatory and regressive anti-LGBT laws. An ongoing case in the Constitutional Court is considering a petition that proposed amending the criminal code to criminalize sex outside of marriage and same-sex sexual relations. During the initial hearings, the petitioners—led by a group called the Family Love Alliance—put forward ill-informed and bigoted testimony similar to the anti-LGBT rhetoric espoused by Indonesian officials and politicians earlier that year. The government, the respondent in the case, said criminalizing sex out of wedlock would make “the sinner a criminal, and the government authoritarian,” a view echoed in testimony by the National Commission on Violence Against Women and other groups opposed to the petition. At time of writing the court had not yet ruled on the petition. While president Joko Widodo, or “Jokowi” in October 2016 declared that police must protect LGBT people and not discriminate against them, he failed to uphold that principle in action. In 2017, police raided at least two private gatherings of gay and bisexual men on the pretense of the discriminatory anti-pornography law, which construes gay sex as “deviant” and prescribes increased punishments for it, and Sharia police publicly flogged two gay men for private, consensual sex in Aceh province.

Iran

Under Iranian law, many nonviolent crimes, such as “insulting the Prophet,” apostasy, same-sex relations, adultery, and drug-related offenses, are punishable by death.

In March, the United Nations Children’s Rights Committee noted that flogging was still a lawful punishment for boys and girls convicted of certain crimes. The committee noted reports that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) children had been subjected to electric shocks to “cure” them.

Iraq

ISIS’s Diwan al-Hisba (Moral Policing Administration) and online media apparatuses have publicly announced 27 executions of allegedly gay men, at least nine of them in Iraq. The main method ISIS used to execute these men has been to throw them off the roofs of high-rise buildings.

Iraq’s penal code does not prohibit same-sex intimacy, although article 394 makes it illegal to engage in extra-marital sexual relations. Due to the fact that the law does not expressly allow same-sex marriage, it effectively prohibits all same-sex relations. In July 2016 Moqtada al-Sadr, the prominent Shia opposition cleric, stated that although same-sex relationships are not acceptable, individuals who do not conform to gender norms suffer from “psychological problems,” and should not be attacked.

Israel/Palestine

There are different legal systems in occupied Palestinian Territory. The British Mandate Criminal Code Ordinance, No. 74 of 1936 is in force in Gaza. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, the Jordanian Penal Code of 1960 applies, and does not contain provisions prohibiting adult consensual same-sex conduct. In Gaza, having “unnatural intercourse” of a sexual nature, understood to include same-sex relationships, is a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. In February 2016, Hamas’s armed wing executed one of its fighters ostensibly for “behavioral and moral violations,” which Hamas officials acknowledged meant same-sex relations.

Italy

As of May 2016, same-sex couples may have their relationships legally recognized as civil unions, though they do not have the right to adopt.

Japan

A bipartisan parliamentary group established in March 2015 continued to discuss legislation to address discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, but at time of writing it had yet to come up with an agreed draft bill. Japanese law treats those requesting legal recognition as transgender as having a “Gender Identity Disorder” and requires obtaining such medical diagnosis. It also requires forced sterilization, compulsory single status, not having any underage children, and being 20 years or older. While same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in Japan, Tokyo’s Shibuya ward in April 2015 became the first municipality to pass a regulation recognizing same-sex partnerships, with more municipalities recognizing such partnerships in 2016 and 2017. Bullying is a problem in Japanese schools generally, and particularly so against LGBT students. In April 2016, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for the first time released a guidebook for teachers regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. And in 2017, MEXT announced amendments to the national bullying prevention policy to include specific mention of LGBT students for the first time.

Jamaica

Jamaica is moving toward a revision of its rape law, which currently defines rape as the penetration of the vagina with the penis without consent. A proposal has been floated for a new law that is gender neutral. The absence of a gender-neutral rape law has been put forth in the past by politicians as justification for retaining Jamaica’s colonial-era “buggery” law, which criminalizes both consensual and non-consensual sex between men. The possible promulgation of a gender-neutral law on rape or sexual assault may therefore be a first step toward decriminalization of consensual same-sex conduct.

Kazakhstan

Surveys of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people reveal that many hide their sexual orientation or gender identity—including to healthcare providers—out of fear of reprisals or discrimination. When LGBT people report abuse, they often face indifference and hostility from authorities. Transgender people must undergo humiliating and invasive procedures—including coerced sterilization—to change gender on official documents. Without identity documents, transgender people struggle to access employment, healthcare, and education. The UN Human Rights Committee called on the government to end discrimination and violence against LGBT people and review gender-reassignment surgery procedures.

Kenya

Kenya’s penal code prohibits “carnal knowledge against the order of nature,” generally understood as consensual sex between men, and “indecent practices between males.” Civil society organizations and activists filed two landmark constitutional petitions against these sections in April and June 2016, arguing that the laws violate constitutional rights, including the rights to equality and nondiscrimination, human dignity, freedom and security of the person, privacy, and health. Kenya continued the prosecution of two men on charges of “carnal knowledge” after police arbitrarily arrested them in Kwale County in February 2015. The case remained open but was suspended pending the ruling of a constitutional petition filed by the two men, asserting that state officials had violated their rights by subjecting them to a forced anal examination. The High Court rejected the petition on the grounds that the men consented to the examination, ignoring that the men were in police custody and not able to provide free and informed consent. The men have appealed the ruling. The government appealed a 2015 High Court decision ordering the Non-Governmental Organizations Board to register the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (NGLHRC), a civil society group. Parties were awaiting a hearing date at time of writing. The Kenya Film Classification Board overstepped its jurisdiction in asking YouTube to remove a locally produced video addressing same-sex relationships, prohibiting an alleged lesbian speed-dating event, and attempting to ban a podcast with alleged lesbian content.

In May 2017, the Attorney General established a “Taskforce on Policy, Legal, Institutional and Administrative Reforms Regarding Intersex Persons in Kenya.” Its mandate includes to “recommend comprehensive reforms to safeguard the interests of intersex persons.” The secretariat of the task force is based at the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights. The task force will be open to receiving submissions on best practices from around the world, and there is a strong possibility that it will result in the establishment of policies that protect the rights of intersex people. While it will not directly address SOGI related rights, the task force may produce a rights-based framework around intersex people with aspects that will be transferrable to the advancement of LGBT rights.

Kyrgyzstan

LGBT people in Kyrgyzstan experience ill-treatment, extortion, and discrimination by both state and non-state actors. There is widespread impunity for these abuses. On May 24, 2016, the law, order and fighting crime parliamentary committee returned Kyrgyzstan’s anti-LGBT bill, which would ban “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,” for a repeat second reading, where it then stalled. The bill appears aimed at silencing anyone seeking to openly share information about same-sex relations in Kyrgyzstan. Following a live debate on LGBT rights on national television, Kyrgyzstan’s State Committee on National Security on June 14 summoned the editor-in-chief of Kloop.kg, an online media portal, for questioning about its coverage of the show. The television’s supervisory board also formally reprimanded its general director for airing the content. Also in June, Kyrgyzstan voted against a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council establishing the mandate of an independent expert to address violence and discrimination against LGBT people.

Latvia

According to Latvian LGBT activists, the authorities used a 2015 law on “constitutional morality education” to censor discussion about LGBT people in at least two schools in 2016.

Lebanon

Sexual relations outside of marriage—adultery and fornication—are criminalized under Lebanon’s penal code. Furthermore, article 534 of the penal code punishes “any sexual intercourse contrary to the order of nature” with up to one year in prison. In recent years, authorities conducted raids to arrest persons allegedly involved in same-sex conduct, some of whom were subjected to torture including forced anal examinations. In February 2016, a Syrian refugee, arrested by Lebanese Military Intelligence officers apparently on suspicion he was gay, was allegedly tortured while detained at Military Intelligence, Ministry of Defense, Military Police, and Jounieh police centers. In January 2017, a judge in Metn challenged the legal basis of the arrest of men for same-sex conduct, declaring that homosexuality is “not a criminal offence,” although under Lebanon’s legal system, the ruling does not create a binding precedent.

Malaysia

Discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is pervasive in Malaysia. Article 377A of the penal code criminalizes same-sex activity between men with punishments of up to 20 years in prison and whipping. Numerous Sharia-based laws and regulations prohibiting a “man posing as a woman,” sexual relations between women, and sexual relations between men effectively criminalize LGBT people.

Both government and private actors attempted to limit expression in support of LGBT rights. In February 2017, JAKIM (the Ministry for Islamic Development) endorsed so-called “conversion therapy,” claiming that gays should seek guidance from God, “repent,” and enter into heterosexual marriages. In March, the Film Censorship Board demanded that Disney edit out four minutes of the children’s film “Beauty and the Beast” because of a “gay moment.” Disney refused to make any cuts to the film, and the board eventually backed down and allowed the unedited film to be screened in Malaysia. In May, Taylor’s University in Subang Jaya canceled a three-day Pride celebration organized by Pelangi, an LGBT rights organization. In June, the Ministry of Health, in response to strident criticism from activists and the general public, reframed the terms of a youth video competition on sexual and reproductive health, removing language and criteria that stigmatized LGBT identities in favor of language that appears to affirm them.

In February 2017 Sameera, a transgender woman, was murdered in Kuantan. In June, an 18-year-old in Penang, T. Nhaveen, died after a group of teenagers allegedly beat and raped him while taunting him with insults such as “pondan,” a derogatory Malay term for an effeminate male, a gay male, or a transgender woman.

Mexico

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Mexico City since 2010. Since then, nine states have legalized it; in 2015, the Supreme Court opened the door to recognition in all states by ruling that the definition of marriage as a union only between a man and a woman constitutes discrimination and thus violates Mexico’s Constitution. In May 2016, President Peña Nieto introduced a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, to remove sexual orientation and gender identity as barriers to adoption, and to recognize gender identity through the reissuance of birth notices, without a doctor’s involvement. Two committees in the Chamber of Deputies voted against the initiative in November.

Morocco/Western Sahara

Moroccan courts continued to jail persons for same-sex conduct under article 489 of the penal code, which prohibits “lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex.” A Beni Mellal court convicted two men of homosexuality after a group of youths on March 9 burst into the home of one and pushed the two men naked into the street, filming the assault and later posting the clip online. The two men were freed after spending one month in prison; in April, a court imposed prison terms on two of their attackers. On October 27, police in Marrakesh arrested two girls aged 16 and 17 who were reported for cuddling in a private home. They were jailed for one week and charged under article 489, then provisionally released. In December, they were acquitted.

Authorities require but often refuse to issue permits for foreign broadcast media to film in Morocco. On April 3, police detained and then expelled a crew of the French news program “Le Petit Journal” as it tried to film in a neighborhood of Beni Mellal where the abovementioned gay-bashing assault had taken place.

Nepal

In line with a 2007 Supreme Court decision and a subsequent court order, the government in 2015 began issuing passports in three genders: “male,” “female,” and “other.” Some with “other” passports have successfully traveled abroad with their travel documents recognized by foreign governments. The new constitution recognizes that citizenship is available in three genders, and protects “gender and sexual minorities” in clauses related to equality before the law and social justice. Activists remain frustrated with the lack of implementation of a Supreme Court-mandated committee recommendation that the government recognize same-sex relationships.

Netherlands

At the start of 2016, NGOs reported threats and discrimination against LGBT asylum seekers at asylum facilities, and a Dutch independent monitoring body, the Dutch Board for Protection of Human Rights, found in February that LGBT asylum seekers at a large facility face discrimination.

Nigeria

The passage of the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act, SSMPA in January 2014, has far reaching effects on members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The law is used to legitimize abuses against LGBT people, including mob violence, sexual abuse, unlawful arrests, torture and extortion by police. On February 13, the police arrested a homosexual couple in the federal capital for allegedly attempting to conduct a wedding. The wedding sponsors and the hotel venue owner were also arrested. The penalty for entering into a gay marriage under the SSMPA is 14 years. Ironically, former President Jonathan who defied global pressure before signing the bill into law, said belatedly in June 2016 that “with the clear knowledge that the issue of sexual orientation is still evolving, the nation may, at the appropriate time, revisit the law.”

In November 2015, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights urged the Nigerian government to review the SSMPA in order to prohibit violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and ensure access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care services for LGBT individuals.

Pakistan

In 2009, Pakistan’s Supreme Court called for improved police response to cases involving transgender people, and to ensure the rights of transgender people to basic education, employment, and protection. However, despite the court order, violent attacks on transgender and intersex women in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province surged in 2016, with unknown assailants frequently targeting those involved in activism. Official responses have been inadequate. Human rights groups in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have recorded dozens of threats to, and attacks on, people and property, including abuses while in police custody. In September 2016, the National Commission for Human Rights called on the government to investigate the attacks, and in 2016 and 2017 local governments and parliament hearings reflected an increased amount of attention to the plight of transgender women—including a unanimous resolution in the Khyber Pakhdunkhwa assembly calling for voting rights for transgender people.

Papua New Guinea

The PNG criminal code outlaws sex “against the order of nature,” which has been interpreted to apply to consensual same-sex acts, and is punishable by up to 14 years’ imprisonment. Gay asylum seekers on Manus Island have reported being shunned, sexually abused, or assaulted by other asylum seekers.

In May, during the periodic review of PNG’s human rights record at the UN Human Rights Council, countries made more than 150 recommendations on sues including ratification of international treaties, establishing a national human rights commission, promoting gender equality, addressing domestic violence and sorcery-related violence, decriminalizing consensual same-sex relations, and abolishing or placing a moratorium on the death penalty. In September, PNG responded that it would ratify all core human rights treaties “on the basis of priorities” and that, while there are challenges to implementing reforms, it is committed to establishing a human rights commission, improving gender equality, and addressing domestic violence and sorcery-related violence. It also noted, however, that “LGBT is currently not a priority of the Government” and that the “death penalty is in our national law, however despite this, the current government directive is not to implement until further directions are issued.”

Peru

In March 2015, Congress rejected a bill to recognize civil unions for same-sex couples. In September 2016, a Congressional supporter of President Kuczynski announced that he would introduce a new legislative proposal to recognize same-sex civil unions.

People in Peru are required to appear before a judge in order to revise the gender noted on their identification documents. In an August 2016 report, the human rights ombudsman noted that courts had rejected most of these requests, often applying inconsistent criteria.

Philippines

The House of Representatives began consideration of House Bill 267, the “Anti SOGI (Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity) Discrimination Act” in June 2016. If approved, it will criminalize discrimination in the employment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals, and prohibit schools from refusing to register or expelling students on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Senate has introduced companion legislation, Senate Bill No. 935, otherwise known as the Anti-Discrimination Bill (ADB), which had its first hearing in August. House Bill 267 will also sensitize police and law enforcement officers on LGBT issues and train them to attend to complaints. These initiatives are essential given that LGBT rights advocacy groups have warned that hate crimes against LGBT people are on the rise and that the Philippines has recorded the highest number of murders of transgender individuals in Southeast Asia since 2008. The bill would also prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in access to health care.

Russia

Authorities continued to implement discriminatory policies and laws against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. In March, police found journalist and theater critic Dmitry Tsilikin dead in his St. Petersburg apartment from stab wounds. The perpetrator, arrested a week later, confessed that he planned to blackmail Tsilikin about his homosexuality, but killed him during a confrontation. The police did not categorize the killing as a hate crime. In January, a court in Murmansk, northwestern Russia, found LGBT activist Sergei Alekseenko guilty of violating the discriminatory “gay propaganda” law which prohibits allowing children access to positive information about LGBT relationships. The court called several publications on the website of an LGBT organization formerly run by Alekseenko “gay propaganda” and fined him 100,000 rubles (US$1,300). Authorities continued legal action against Deti-404, an online support group for LGBT children. In April, a court in the Siberian town of Barnaul ruled to ban the website. As of November, Deti 404’s website remained blocked. In September, a court in Siberia ruled to block BlueSystem.ru, a highly popular LGBT news site. As of November, the site was blocked.

In February 2017 and stretching through at least the first week in April, law enforcement and security officials in Russia’s Chechen Republic launched an unprecedented anti-gay purge. They rounded up dozens of men on suspicion of being gay, held them in unofficial detention facilities for days, humiliated, starved, and tortured them. They forcibly disappeared some of the men. Others were returned to their families barely alive from beatings. Their captors exposed them to their families as gay and encouraged their relatives to carry out so-called “honor killings.” Although Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the round-ups, there is evidence that high-level officials in Chechnya sanctioned them. Russia’s federal government pledged to investigate, but intense and well-founded fear of official retaliation and honor killings, and overwhelming stigma will prevent many victims from coming forward.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has no written laws concerning sexual orientation or gender identity, but judges use principles of uncodified Islamic law to sanction people suspected of committing sexual relations outside marriage, including adultery, extramarital and homosexual sex, or other “immoral” acts. If such activity occurs online, judges and prosecutors utilize vague provisions of the country’s anti-cybercrime law that criminalize online activity impinging on “public order, religious values, public morals, and privacy.” In February 2016, the Saudi Gazette reported that the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution is considering requesting the death penalty for anyone “using social media to solicit homosexual acts.”

In February 2017, Saudi police arrested 35 Pakistani citizens, some of whom were transgender women. One of them died in detention. Her family said her body bore signs of torture, while the Saudi authorities said she had died of a heart attack.

Serbia (Kosovo)

Attacks and harassment of human rights defenders continued. According to local LGBT and human rights organizations, the majority of attacks and threats against members of the LGBT community go unreported with only known LGBT activists filing complaints. In June, in Vojvodina in Northeast Serbia, an LGBT activist was attacked and kicked in the head by four unidentified perpetrators. No one had been prosecuted at time of writing. In August, LGBT activist Boban Stojanovic, one of the Belgrade Pride organizers, was punched and called a “fag” in downtown Belgrade by two unidentified men. Police were investigating at time of writing. Hundreds of police officers deployed in Belgrade to protect the LGBT Pride march in September, which occurred without violence. This was a marked improvement from previous years when protesters attacked the parade, or the government had cancelled the event citing security concerns instead of providing adequate security.

The Kosovo Constitution protects against sexual orientation-based discrimination and a 2015 anti-discrimination law enumerates protections for both sexual orientation and gender identity; however, implementation remains weak.

Singapore

The rights of Singapore’s LGBT community are severely restricted. Sexual relations between two male persons remains a criminal offense, and there are no legal protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The Media Development Authority effectively prohibits all positive depictions of LGBT lives on television or radio. The annual Pink Dot Festival in support of LGBT rights celebrated its eighth year in Hong Lim Park in June 2016, supported by the sponsorship of corporations including Google, Barclays, J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, BP, Bloomberg, Twitter, Apple, and Facebook. A few days after the event, the Ministry of Home Affairs warned multinational companies to stop funding the event, saying such support constitutes “foreign interference” with domestic affairs. In October, the Ministry of Home Affairs announced that, under newly promulgated rules, any entity that is not incorporated in Singapore and does not have a majority of Singapore citizens on its board is now required to apply for a permit to sponsor an event in Hong Lim Park.

Associations of more than 10 people are required to register with the government, and the Registrar of Societies has broad authority to deny registration if he determines the group could be “prejudicial to public peace, welfare or good order.” The Registrar of Societies has refused to allow any lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transsexual (LGBT) organization to register as a society on the ground that “it is contrary to the public interest to grant legitimacy to the promotion of homosexual activities or viewpoints.”

All films and videos shown in Singapore must be pre-approved by the Board of Film Censors. Theater productions must also obtain a license under the Public Entertainment and Meetings Act, and to do so must submit their scripts for approval. In June 2016, a production of “Les Miserables” was forced to delete a scene containing a same-sex kiss.

South Africa

South Africa has a progressive constitution that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and protects the human rights of LGBTI people. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has taken significant steps to improve coordination between government and civil society in combatting violence (including rape and murder) against lesbians and transgender men. On September 6, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba announced that due to widespread homophobic attitudes within South African society, and to protect the rights of LGBTI people, homophobic US pastor Steven Anderson and members of his church were banned from entering the country because they promote hate speech and advocate social violence. He said constitutional and legislative guarantees, including the rights of LGBTI persons, must be respected by all. Domestic LGBTI groups lauded the decision. In June 2017, at the 8th South African AIDS Conference, the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) launched the national HIV framework for LGBTI people. South Africa is the first country in the world to launch an HIV framework specifically for LGBT people as part of its national strategic plan. The objective is to “reverse the burden of disease from HIV, STIs and TB and to promote a rights and evidence-based environment for LGBTI people in South Africa.”

Some of South Africa’s votes at the United Nations were contrary to the country’s stated human rights principles. For example, in July, South Africa voted against a UN Human Rights Council resolution on the protection of human rights on the internet and abstained on a key HRC vote to appoint an independent expert on sexual orientation and gender identity. The abstention went against the country’s strong constitutional protections and domestic laws around sexual orientation and gender identity. But on November 21, in the UN General Assembly committee, South Africa voted to allow Vitit Muntabhorn, the newly appointed UN expert on sexual orientation and gender identity, to continue his work. The vote was taken after the African Group put forward a resolution to stop the operations of the UN expert who was appointed in September by the Human Rights Council.

Sri Lanka

State and non-state discrimination and abuses against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) population persist. Sections 365 and 365A of the Sri Lankan Penal Code prohibit “carnal knowledge against the order of nature” and “gross indecency,” commonly understood in Sri Lanka to criminalize all same-sex relations between consenting adults. Sri Lankan law does not specifically criminalize transgender or intersex people. But no laws ensure that their rights are protected, and police have used several criminal offenses and regulations to target LGBTI people, particularly transgender women and men who have sex with men (MSM) involved in sex work. These include a law against “cheat[ing] by personation,” and the vaguely worded Vagrants’ Ordinance, which prohibits soliciting or committing acts of “gross indecency,” or being “incorrigible rogues” procuring “illicit or unnatural intercourse.” Some trans women and MSM said that repeated harassment by police, including instances of arbitrary detention and mistreatment, had eroded their trust in Sri Lankan authorities, and made it unlikely that they would report a crime. Several people also reported discriminatory treatment at the hands of medical authorities, leading many transgender people to self-medicate rather than seeking professional assistance.

Syria

News reports in 2016 indicate that ISIS continues to execute men accused of homosexuality. In one reported case from Deir al-Zour governorate, a 15-year-old boy was thrown from a building in January 2016 after he was accused of being gay. At least 25 men have been murdered by ISIS in Syria on suspicion of homosexuality or for sodomy, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Tanzania

Tanzanian law criminalizes consensual sexual conduct between adult males, with a penalty of 30 years to life in prison, one of the most severe punishments for same-sex intimacy in the world. Zanzibar has slightly different laws but criminalizes both male homosexual conduct and lesbianism. The laws are rarely applied, but police and other authorities use them as a pretext to extort, abuse and marginalize LGBTI people. 

Under the government of John Magufuli, Tanzania has seen an unprecedented crackdown on LGBT people. The government has shut down HIV outreach services and drop-in centers targeting men who have sex with men (MSM); banned the import of water-based lubricants, an important HIV prevention tool; and threatened to shut down LGBT organizations. Police in Zanzibar arrested nine young men, charged them with homosexual conduct, and subjected them to forced anal examinations at a government hospital in December 2016. They were released on bail, but the cases remain open. Another young man was arrested in Dar es Salaam in March 2017, and was also subjected to a forced anal exam. In June 2017, President Magufuli publicly condemned same-sex relationships.

Tunisia

The penal code punishes consensual same-sex conduct with up to three years in prison. Anal testing is used as the main evidence in order to convict men for homosexuality. In two high-profile cases in 2015, at least seven young men were arrested and subjected to anal examinations by forensic doctors, whose reports were used as evidence to convict them of sodomy and imprison them, even though it is well-documented that such exams lack medical value. On appeal, their sentences were reduced to two months in the first case, and one month in the second.

Tunisia has thus far been unwilling to consider decriminalization of consensual same-sex conduct but, in its 2017 UPR review, accepted a recommendation to end forced anal examinations. This positive development followed months of advocacy from Tunisian and international human rights groups. The United Nations Committee against Torture, in its 2016 evaluation of Tunisia, condemned the use of anal examinations as to prove homosexual conduct. Shortly before the UPR review, the national medical council issued a circular calling on medical personnel to stop conducting anal examinations without consent.

Turkey

Authorities frequently impose arbitrary bans on public assemblies and violently disperse peaceful demonstrations. For the second year running, the Istanbul governor’s office banned the annual Istanbul Gay and Trans Pride marches in June 2016, citing concerns about security threats and public order.

Turkmenistan

Under Turkmen law homosexual conduct is punishable by up to two years in prison. Widespread prejudice leads to homosexuality being treated as a disease, including by medical institutions and judicial authorities. Law enforcement officials and medical personnel subject persons detained and charged with sodomy to forced anal examinations, with the purported objective of finding “proof” of homosexual conduct.

Uganda

After nine years, the Constitutional Court finally ruled in November on a challenge to a limitation on the mandate of the Equal Opportunities Commission, which barred it from investigating any matter involving behavior “considered to be immoral and socially harmful, or unacceptable by the majority of the cultural and social communities in Uganda.” The judges determined the limitation was unconstitutional and violated the right to a fair hearing. Perversely, this provision had meant that the very mechanism designed to protect people from discrimination could blatantly discriminate against women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, sex workers, and anyone else who might not have been perceived to reflect the views of the majority.

Same-sex conduct remains criminalized under Uganda’s colonial-era law, which prohibits “carnal knowledge” among people of the same sex. The new NGO law raises concerns about the criminalization of legitimate advocacy on the rights of LGBTI people. In August, police unlawfully raided a peaceful pageant that was part of Gay Pride celebrations in Kampala. Police locked the venue’s gates, arrested activists, and beat and humiliated hundreds of people, violating rights to association and assembly. Police continue to carry out forced anal examinations on men and transgender women accused of consensual same-sex conduct. These examinations lack evidentiary value and are a form of cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment that may amount to torture.

Ukraine

Since 2014, the government has introduced several progressive policies supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, but anti-LGBT sentiment remains strong among high-level government officials and the public. In March 2016, about 200 anti-gay, far-right supporters attacked a venue in Lviv hosting a LGBT equality festival, eventually causing the event to be cancelled. The Kyiv LGBT Pride march held in June took place without the violence against participants that had marred it in previous years. Ultra-nationalist groups had threatened to make the march a “bloody mess.” Around 6,000 police officers protected the 1,500 march participants. The first LGBT Pride march took place in Odesa in August. Local authorities initially attempted to ban it, but relented when organizers changed the route. Police arrested four ultra-nationalists who attempted to disrupt the event. A new draft of the amended labor code does not include an anti-discrimination provision that would protect LGBT people in the workplace.

United Arab Emirates

The UAE’s penal code does not explicitly prohibit homosexuality. However, article 356 of the penal code criminalizes (but does not define) “indecency,” and provid

Lay Down (With) Your Armor


The Best of 2009

For yet another year I have lived two musical lives, one ever deeper into obscure mazes of metal, one out in the sunshine and warm air. Nothing feels contradictory about this: I'd live three or four more musical lives at once if I had the time. I'd happily live parallel lives in other aspects of my existence if there were ways. Life is short, so of course we want it to be wider.

But what I realize, really only as I compile these lists, is that my metal and non-metal lives are not so much parallel as perpendicular. My metal top-10 this year has 7 bands I'd never heard of before 2009, two more I knew and disliked, and just one band that has ever made one of these lists before. For a temperamentally obsessive emotional completist who still basically loves everything I've loved since I was 12 or so, this is borderline dumbfounding. Hopefully it's a combined testament to my own openness and the way the web has mostly eliminated any necessary logistical distinction between "heard of them" and "heard them". If I'd had to buy CDs to hear these bands, I'd have found one or two of them, or quite possibly none. And without them, I'd still have had no trouble making a list I felt just as strongly about, but there's no way to unlove, or at least no way I know or want to. I have always been convinced that there is more music I would love, farther in every direction I have looked, but I'm not sure I've ever felt as empirically justified in this belief.

And meanwhile, away from metal, I've also had a great listening year in which I could easily make a replacement top-10 if everything on this one mysteriously vanished. But almost nothing on either list was new to me. One band I'd forgotten about, one I hadn't previously loved. Basically, I heard lots of great music that wasn't metal this year, but I didn't discover much. That thread of my year was receptive and curious, but mostly not exploratory. And so there is probably music I didn't hear that I would have loved as much as some of these records.

But that, of course, was always the case. I have found the time to love these things. I have found these sounds to be worthy of my time, which is a finite resource, and my love, whose boundaries I have occasionally thought I'd distantly seen, and always been wrong.


Albums (Metal)


1

Madder Mortem: Eight Ways

Genres are vectors, not shapes. They do not, at least the living ones, draw delineations between what is and what isn't, but rather trajectories towards and away. There are guitar timbres and cadences that are correlated with metal, but also songs with those features that no more belong to Metal than I was Estonian for three days in Tallinn. And bands with a hundred other influences and inclinations that I can instantly recognize as part of my version of this elusive idea.

And thus my favorite metal album, this year, coalesces out of a dozen different shadows, Fugazi minimalism wound tensely around Rush's expansive confidence, or Vernon Reid's buzzsaw guitar skittering off the jump-cut fractures of Chicks on Speed, or Janis Joplin and Tommy Iommi hijacking Life Without Buildings, or frost giants with the dexterity of Pixies. I hear Cynic playing Cowboy Junkies, and Enslaved backing Mecca Normal, and then a sudden vision of how Crimson would fare with a queen.

For moments, Eight Ways follows all these lines and others, and then always moments later Agnete Kirkevaag tears them diving away again, into gypsy tailspin or fight-song fervor or gnashing fractals of defiance. For an hour, it seems almost painfully clear to me that everything I've ever loved leads to this, and there's some chaos topology in which terrifyingly straight lines run from Ray Charles to Kate Bush to FSOL to some tiny seam on the back of my skull through which invisible wires patch directly into my sense of besieged humanity. For an hour at a time, repeated as often as I can bear, I remember precisely what draws me here, metal not as fantasy or escape, but as a relentless grip on writhing truth, and a celebration of irreducible complexity tantamount to sacred ritual.


2

Secrets of the Moon: Privilegivm

It is an essential component of the ingenious insularity of metal, and I do not mean this in any way glibly, that a lot of it seems wildly ridiculous. In an increasingly connectedly claustrophobic world, with vanishing latency between rebellion and commodification, alienating people is pretty much the only reliable way to block out any aesthetic breathing space. The difficult second-order trick, of course, is alienating people without becoming defined by them in the process. Thus the migration from the confrontational forms of speed- and thrash- and death-metal into the threateningly occult. If you can't shock people into being afraid of what you'll do to them, you might still be able to scare them into fearing what you'll convince them to do to themselves.

So the cheerfully pointless orthographic substitution of "v" for "u", and the luminously hollow apple on the black cover of Privilegivm, and the solemn half-intelligible liturgical intonations of "chop down the tree of life" and "the gods will know your name" all aspire to the provoke, I think, the same puzzled shudders once engendered by the garish underbrush of Black Sabbath. There's no easy violence to explain this as reaction or hyperbole. Whatever secrets the moon has, surely airlessness renders them moot. Surely. But in a year when Sabbath themselves were stomping around in gleaming uniforms, however relogoed, Secrets of the Moon were again, for me, truer heirs to their original spirit of wakeful darkness. I owe my life in metal to Iommi and Dio as much as I owe anything to anybody I've never met, but The Devil You Know is self-declaratively complacent, metal as a template theme, not a philosophy.

And not that I can quote verses of literal inspiration from Secrets of the Moon, either. I doubt I could produce a page of coherent lyrical transcription from memory from all these albums put together, honestly, even allowing that some of them are in languages I don't speak. But the hollow apple is there to suggest that the tree of knowledge was never more than a convenient pretext for layoffs, anyway. The great insight instantiated in the idea of evil, and in all this music that flaunts nominal lineage from darkness and doubt, is that there is no such divide. There are no forbidden secrets, in the moon or anywhere else. These anti-temples and beautiful ominous monuments are erected on the sites of myths to say that we are free to inhabit what we are supposed to fear.

Thy Catafalque: Róka Hasa Rádió

Or else we cling to the idea of a dark side because we need so badly for there to be somewhere other than this. Thus the appeal of Avatar, obviously, a movie that desperately needed to better understand the component of alienation in "alien". I loved the experience of being taken to Pandora for 162 minutes, but I hated that by the end there was nothing shocking about taking off the glasses again. So much exquisite imagination of the physical detail of another place, so much canned exaltation of souls, and yet so little depth of either humanity or non-humanity, and so little empathy for any idea that there could be souls in other forms that there might as well have been no characters at all. In fact, excise the humans and the Na'vi both, right from the first draft of the script, and Avatar might have grown into something worth, to us as a society, the absurd sums we retroactively spent on it. It would challenge and nourish us to be transported into a different world, with a logic of its own. Instead, we get our own dopiest mannerisms texture-mapped onto perfunctory aliens like moral graffiti, a monumental void of inspiration and procedurally inexplicable failure of courage.

And part of what we do with music, and why music is an element where movies are an industry, is let ourselves be taken elsewhere. I don't know how much time and money went into the making of Róka Hasa Rádió, but I could easily believe it was done by two Hungarians in their spare time from day jobs cleaning trains, on balky second-hand laptops in rooms with faded posters of Xenakis slowly crumbling onto the dusty tops of once-preciously-illegal shortwave consoles. And yet, with all the money on all the planets, Avatar would never have been any better than this. Here, unless you spend your days cleaning those same trains and this is actually what they sound like, is your voyage to an elsewhere, done in a medium qualitatively better suited for it. Here, in an album about which I know essentially nothing beyond its name, and ran across in a single random sentence somebody wrote somewhere about some other band entirely, is an effortless explosion of texture and flow and transport and altered perspective, spinning filaments of folk metal and carillon and Vangelis and Zoolook and radio static and alien loudspeaker announcements into an entire involuted universe. We are already standing on the roots of our Tree of Life. We are already the strangest creatures we can imagine, and this is not the limit of our imagination, but its origin.

Antigua y Barbuda: Try Future

I listen to so much metal whose lyrics I can't understand, and often aren't even meant to, but remain ironically sensitive to particular micro-nuances of vocal personality. Or perhaps this actually makes sense: I have absorbed the text into the coherent indivisibility of the music, and so it becomes necessarily critical how it's delivered. Either way, it was the careening vocals, closer to Sunny Day Real Estate's Jeremy Enigk than any metal referent I can think of, that initially arrested another of my random scans on Antigua y Barbuda, a band so obscure I had to add them to the Encyclopaedia Metallum myself. Months later they still have no EM ratings, which is as stark a demonstration as anything of what you must accept as possible when you agree to make art. It may not matter how good it is. Or, at least, it may not immediately matter. Try Future is the album I wanted all those Trans Am records to be, a boiling, sputtering epic of restlessness, flung between post-math and tech-something and Seventh-Rule vehemence. In a less fearful world, AyB would be the new Muse.


5

Funeral Mist: Maranatha

"It's the blood!" wails a voice, frantically, repeatedly, and after that it gets scarier. It's not always obvious from written descriptions that Black Metal is a good idea for a subgenre: strangled muttering as the defining vocal style, drums so fast that you skip headbanging and go straight to migraines, the production fidelity of portraiture via charcoal-on-newsprint left out in hailstorms, blustering Satanism as sacramental obscurism more often than gnostic rebuttal. As with any constructed form, treat it as formula and you'll get branded mediocrity. But subgenres arise on common ground, and there's usually some reason people were coming there before being there was its own excuse. Maranatha is as comprehensive an explication of the aesthetic's potential as anything I know: a Dantean maelstrom-descent in search of the root of contemptuously conventional religious spirituality for the express and singular purpose of ripping it out of bedrock with your own teeth.


6

Absu: Absu

Bleak extreme metal emanates temperamentally from frozen northern wastes. Absu are from Plano. When I was in high school in Dallas, and Plano were our archrivals, the place was at least a little wastelike, and it was a bit north of us, but the metro sprawl of Dallas has long since absorbed it into the vast homogeneity, and by now if Odin lived there he'd have an Arby's franchise and a two-year-old Blackberry. But then Metallica weren't from Norway, either, and Absu have maybe come as close as anybody in a couple decades to translating the frenetic domination of Master of Puppets into a new idiom. And if I had to reduce the year in metal to a single word, it would be Absu howling "Annihilate!"


7

Wardruna: Runaljod - Gap Var Ginnunga

In one sense metal only by affiliation (Kvitrafn and Gaahl were both in Gorgoroth for a while), Wardruna is a conceptual experiment in adapting runic texts to acoustic ambient ritualism, doing for hidden forest glades, perhaps, what plainsong did for stone monasteries. By rights this should be little more than a 52-minute sourcebook for those murmuring 1:15 intros to drinking-metal albums that are hoping to pass off indiscipline as paganism. It's spare and slow, driven unhurriedly by pattering hand-drums, near-subvocal chanting and some sproingy thing that sounds unnervingly like the kid behind you in homeroom playing his retainer-elastic with a Bic pen-cap. But if you can accept the idea of metal as as a textural system, subject to transliteration into different levels of elaboration, then this and Funeral Mist may be practical isomorphs. Ambient Metal used to be my joke genre, but here it is, real. If Avatar was transport by force, this is isolation by removal, a sound map for the hidden vales of quiet lost magic trapped inside us.


8

Lifelover: Dekadens

What HIM might sound like with nihilism substituted for love, and thus an intriguing argument that maybe ultimately they're the same.


9

Amorphis: Skyforger

I'd given up on Amorphis years ago, so I don't know why I even bothered listening to this. But I'd manage to miss that three albums ago they got a new singer and found, either consequently or coincidentally, a whole new focus. Skyforger is the best album of unapologetic metal songs I heard this year, and maybe a singlehanded revival of the lead-hook as melodic rapturism.


10

Cantata Sangui: On Rituals and Correspondence in Constructed Realities

The standard advice, impossible to argue with in generality, is that you have to focus. Do fewer things, so you can do them better. But the problem with this reasonable humility is that it's reasonable, or maybe it's that it's humble. It's defensive paranoia imported from civil engineering or pulmonary surgery or something, a recipe for turning adequate competence into recognizable inoffensiveness. It's foolproofing for people who have tried to substitute dignity for inspiration, and thus forgotten the critical detail that failure is relative where silence is absolute. Foolishness is a gift, not a disease. Fearlessly foolish straight from their ridiculous debut-album title to their preposterous combination of opera-gothic solemnity and rubberband pop glee, Cantata Sangui are yet another perpendicular justification for metal. Declare yourself outcast and you have escaped.


Albums (Non-Metal)


1

Manic Street Preachers: Journal for Plague Lovers demos + album + remixes

Two of my Desert-Island-Disc-level favorite artists had new albums this year, and they're my #1 and #2. This wasn't quite inevitable (both have made albums I haven't liked this much), but it's hardly shocking, and I'd feel self-conscious about it if they weren't such inarguable choices.

It was the Manic Street Preachers' year, for me. The album is good enough to be here, by itself, as taut and yearning a set of rock songs as anything they've done since Gold Against the Soul. Filling a whole record with words from the facing pages of deceased lyricist Richey Edwards' notebooks is the kind of patently terrible idea the Manics turn into supremely flawed greatness. They thrive on contradictions. No, more than that. They exist through contradictions. Intense political conviction clashes against strident immaturity (being dead or missing for 14 years hasn't made Edwards' writing any more sophisticated), plangent arcs of vehemence get snapped into halves and thirds to fit into song-meter, melodies soar over conjunctions and adverbs, even the titles seem engineered to be misquoted. Little wonder they were never huge in America, where Meat Loaf proved that most people can't even parse a sentiment spread out over more than one sentence.

But Journal for Plague Lovers isn't just an album, and if you believe that flaws can be integral to greatness, hearing it expand into a whole aesthetic system is like seeing souls become visible in the air above people's heads. The cycle starts with the demos, released complete as a bonus, and I could go back and forth between the versions almost indefinitely. They're nominally sketches and then pictures, but in many cases the process seems far more like derivation than polishing.

And they came to the US, after all, this band I have loved for 18 years and had never seen. They'd played in Boston only once, on some weekday in 1996 or so when I was horrifiedly out of town, and by the time they got here, this time, on the last night of the tour, James' voice was so shot he had to let the crowd take Traci's parts on "Little Baby Nothing". But they made it, and I made it, and for a short while a lot of years of my life and theirs telescoped into a both heartbreakingly and preciously small club. Standing on a balcony, watching people I've never met singing along with songs I can play in my head, I believe again that a small, near-solipsistic bit of human frailty can contain an internal universe big enough to nurture all our hopes.

But believing this is one thing, and hearing it happen is another. There's an album of remixes. At least half of my favorite remixes were already Manic Street Preachers songs, anyway, but this is now my vote for the greatest remix album so far in history, and the most compact defense yet of the whole form. The songs change moods, speeds, genders, cadences, conclusions, conditions. In places the remixes focus the original songs by contrast, in others they carve spaces around the boundaries of what the compositions dream. Now I want to hear the band play these songs, and then let them be reremixed, and then repeat. I'm pretty sure the cycle could go around four or five more times, at least, before the returns started even marginally diminishing. And this is what we embrace as possible in order to participate in art. That we do not make it, we just give it somewhere to begin.


2

Tori Amos: Midwinter Graces and Abnormally Attracted to Sin

Tori Amos had another studio album this year, as well. It, too, is tantamount to an ecosystem in itself, an episodic, resolutely self-contained, idiom-neological collage of energies and personas and confessions and smirks. I don't honestly think humans get any more talented than this.

And then there's a Christmas album. As far as I'm concerned there had previously only ever been two Christmas albums worth noting as standalone artworks, Loreena McKennitt's To Drive the Cold Winter Away and Low's Christmas. Tori's well-known religious issues made the idea at least superficially provocative, but I wasn't sure I actually wanted to find out whether I could bear "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" via "Happy Phantom".

But it's only after Midwinter Graces that I understand what I really think about Abnormally Attracted to Sin. What the "real" album is missing is the sound of Tori surprising herself. Those songs don't always sound like Tori knew all along where they were going, but they sound like she knew how she was going to find out. Midwinter Graces is a conversely breathtaking leap into the terrifying unknown, a glittering hymn to the realization that facing your angels is always far harder than facing your demons. With demons, if you can't understand them, you're allowed to fight them. No such alternative if the only recourse is forgiveness. In a way this is the stylistic and moral synthesis of McKennitt's scholarly distance and Low's deconstructed faith, as if maybe it isn't arbitrary that those are the two Christmas records I am drawn to, after all. And if Loreena offered me a way to appreciate something I didn't endorse, and Low showed a path towards something else I could schedule in its place, Midwinter Graces shows that both of these evasive impulses are ultimately fighting in polite disguise. You don't defeat things you fear, that only preserves and postpones them. If you want to be free of them, you have to understand them better than they understand themselves. Enemies can only ever disappear inside of you.


3

Idlewild: Post Electric Blues

I once said that Idlewild were the best rock band in the world, and then they promptly made a couple albums that weren't why, presumably not to spite me. My guess was that they were trying too hard to be something they thought somebody wanted them to be, which is never a great way to live, and the kind of people you fool this way make terrible friends. For Post Electric Blues Idlewild deliberately abandoned the record industry (or deliberately accepted having been abandoned by the record industry, I'm not sure and don't care which), and sound to me exactly as reinvigorated as a moral agenda could hope. They were always one of my favorite b-side bands, and here for really the first time a whole album has the energy they used to sublimate when they thought they were being graded, bouncy and uncluttered and unforced, more melancholy than roaring, more twang and chirp than slash and burn. It's neither post-electric nor blues, but then I guess I was as much to blame for mislistening as anybody; this is not an album by the world's greatest rock band. But this is its serenity, not its curse. This is the sound of a band not failing to be something else, but finding their own way again.


4

It Bites: The Tall Ships

Progressive rock is difficult, but progressive pop is hard. Marillion pulled it off on Misplaced Childhood, and maybe even more precisely on Holidays in Eden, but have long since sloughed into other moods. IQ made two more of my defining examples, Nomzamo and Are You Sitting Comfortably?, and had a new album this year themselves, but the one that sounded even more thrillingly like a late-80s IQ album was this surprise return by It Bites, an IQ peer last heard from when Are You Sitting Comfortably? was still new. An album for anybody who ever felt that there must be something good that Asia was a bad version of.


5

Bat for Lashes: Two Suns

Maybe the most deliberately ambitious record of the year, or at least the one with the surest sense of its own swirly aesthetic, and an argument that Avatar could have been done with hand-painted puppets, too. Kate Bush + Björk + Fleetwood Mac, or perhaps to Tori what Tori was to Kate.


6

Wheat: White Ink Black Ink

The band I would happily trade a Pazz & Jop of dull indie for, heirs at once of Big Star and Tom Petty and the Replacements and They Might Be Giants and Sloan.


7

Stars of Track and Field: A Time for Lions

There are lots of bands who sound like they're trying to sound like the 80s, but far too few that feel like they're trying to feel like that music made me feel.


8

Tegan & Sara: Sainthood

And so pop twists in wires,


9

Metric: Fantasies

and simmers in generator hum,


10

Maxïmo Park: Quicken the Heart

and corkscrews off the walls in pointy shoes, dancing with or without you.


Other Songs

Excuses for Our Natures to Change


The Best of 2008

It has literally never been my job to figure out what the new business model is for music, and thus it's hard to argue that it's my moral responsibility, either. And if I'm not responsible for it, then it probably doesn't much matter what I think.

But here's what I think: there is no new business model for music. It doesn't matter whether you fight the new technology or embrace it or try to appease it; there's no new business model for music because there was never really an old business model for music, either. There was a business model for record companies once, maybe, and there are new ones for celebrity persona-management and soundtrack-placement or something, but these are not business models for music. They are not models for how any particular person who makes music can afford to not hold other employment, and they are not models for how any particular person who loves music can express that love as effective economic catalyst or responsive reward. There is no economic system for maximizing expressive opportunity or artistic greatness. There are not even really business systems for expressive subsistence or artistic sufficiency. Mostly we have music because we are human, and one of the things humans do is sing. Periodically we hold lotteries you enter by singing, like we sometimes hold lotteries you enter by playing basketball or by lying to people en masse. But these are not businesses. Or, more accurately, they are precisely businesses, but businesses for selling dreams, and for selling tools for dreaming, and for selling memorabilia from having once dreamed.

And yet, I still managed to pay for a fair amount of music this year. Perversely, pyrrhically, I still did a bunch of this by purchasing plastic disks. I've been saying for a while that I was still buying CDs out of a rueful love for a doomed system, but I've finally realized that this isn't even true. Honestly, the CD and LP and record-store businesses were never my friends. As a music lover I have always been driven by relentless, nearly-painful curiosity, and no version of the music business has ever tried in earnest to help me be happier. They have demanded too much money, and at the wrong points in the cycle of discovery. They have not helped me learn or explore. Often they've resisted. Not very effectively, in the end, but a weak enemy is not quite the same as a friend.

But what business was too myopic to try, technology and people have made for ourselves. We can explore now. There are only three things mentioned anywhere below that I paid for before hearing, and in all three cases this was due to inattention on my part, not any kind of moral principle or logistical necessity. The systems for music discovery have abundant remaining opportunity for improvement, both technically and culturally, but for the first time in my own life, and maybe ever, they make a basic structural sense. I can follow paths of connections and associations, some made by the music itself and most by its listeners. I can explore the space of possible music directly, not at some qualitatively awkward remove. It's not nearly as easy or efficient, in absolute terms, as it needs to be for the universal benefit of music-loving humans, but for computer-geeks with fast internet connections, at least, it's workable enough.

But though I've always wanted exploration to be free, mostly because charging for it always made it more difficult for both listeners and performers, I've also always wanted to spend money on music. Our economic systems are so obfuscated by now that this simple idea probably sounds malformed or psychotic in that phrasing, but that's exactly what I mean to say: I always have, and still do, want to spend money on music. I want part of the flow of monetary compensation that comes to me, as a result of things I'm good at, to go to the people who make music I love. I download, listen, discard, download, listen, discard, download, listen, listen, discard, download, listen, listen, listen, embrace. And then I want, at the point when I have realized what I love, to have a monetary way to express my appreciation for it. And I want, honestly and specifically, for that expression of appreciation to itself have some coherent additional reward (so simply paying to redownload the same music I already downloaded isn't it), but not an imposition of burden in either direction (so no True Fan subscriptions).

Hilariously, buying CDs is actually a nearly perfect mechanism for the exchange of appreciation and acknowledgment I'm after. Here on what still seems like the brink of the death of the CD, we've finally figured out what a CD is best as: a physical sigil disguised as media. It has practical value as a data backup, aesthetic value as an artistic codicil, collector's value as a commemorative, and economic value as an excuse for a transaction, yet it doesn't force either me or the band into taking on another ongoing relationship to be managed. Belle points out that these physical sigils do also have a non-zero physical storage cost, in the finite space of our house, but I think the incremental space consumed by individual cases is basically reasonable, whether my personal accumulation of them is reasonable or not. And yes, the CDs should cost a little less, and a lot more of that reduced cost should go to the artists. And this still won't constitute a livelihood for any significant fraction of the people who might rather make music than whatever other day job they keep. But that part is just life. I'd rather listen to music for a living (or collect it, for that matter). We're not after riches for idleness, at least not yet. If global economic collapse resets everybody's expectations to sustainable levels, it will have been more than worth all its imaginary "losses". All we're really after, I think, given the current overall balance between human resources and human challenges, is a system for defraying, a little, what it costs people to share their singing. A little more time for singing, a little more time for listening, a little clearer air to carry the music farther.


Albums (Metal)


1

In This Moment: The Dream

In the meantime, if the air won't carry your music far enough, you can always play it louder. In another year in which my listening was so dominated by metal that I'm making two separate lists, and my metal listening so dominated by arcane menace that if I ever slip up and start talking about it to normal people I have to repeatedly insist that I'm serious, my favorite metal album of all is actually one of the rare stylistic compromises between aggression and elegance, and a brave coercion of metal's extremism into the service of melodic rapture. In This Moment's 2007 debut already hinted at an emotional lineage deriving as much from the sharper early edges of New Wave as from Arch Enemy or Evanescence, but for this second album they have solved the whole next set of differential equations, for maybe a unified-field theory connecting T'Pau and Veruca Salt to Dream Theater and DragonForce, and ended up with something that does for vertiginous joy what Slayer did for punitive hatred.


2

Enslaved: Vertebrae

Trinacria: Travel Now Journey Infinitely

And while The Dream was my favorite metal album viscerally and involuntarily, my favorites intellectually and deliberately were this matched pair from somewhere in Norway where the permafrost just ominously stopped being permanent. Trinacria, a half-Enslaved side-project, made the most sonically bracing record I heard this year, a processor-shredded involution of metal into maelstrom soundscape whose title, I think, is a New-Age-disguised way of making getting thrown off the edge of the flat earth sound meditative. Enslaved's own record, a 49-minute concordance for the astonishing whole new universe that dark metal has tesseracted into, finally pulls off the decryption of Pink Floyd's expansive introspection out of stormblasting grind that Voivod once attempted, and in the process probably liberates the ghosts of more metal bands than have yet been killed.


3

Everon: North

So many dense nexuses of metal have unfolded into new worlds that it's easy to lose track of the margins, and by now there are probably 50 technical-death-metal bands and 500 melodic-death-metal bands for every operating melodic-neo-progressive-metal group. Blame Dream Theater, maybe, for making lyrically-abstract 8:34 speed-symphonies the new 4:30 alienation anthems, and Marillion for drifting out of the market square, and everyone who slid past simple songcraft into texture-mapped caricature. But off in this neglected backwater, Everon are several albums into an uncannily gorgeous running extrapolation of what might have happened if Jonathan Cain had joined Rush instead of Journey. Oliver Philipps might be the best mainstream songwriter in (or near) metal, and if there's ever a rotisserie metal league, I'm taking Philipps and Christian Moos' SpaceLab as my production studio.


4

Eluveitie: Slania

There's no shortage of folk-death bands, either, which only seems like a joke subgenre until you think a little about the nature of fable and cultural self-identity. Or hear some. Nods to Metsatöll (Estonia), Equilibrium (Germany) and Týr (Faroe Islands), but my favorite folk-death discovery since Skyclad is a Swiss band (or, judging from the band pictures, a small Swiss village) called Eluveitie, who sound about like what you'd end up with if you drove Clannad up the nearest Alp and left them for the wolves to eat, but went back a few generations later, when you realized you hadn't seen a wolf in a while, to discover that they're now 6'9" and waiting for you with fifes. And halberds.


5

Leviathan: Massive Conspiracy Against All Life

But if soaring melody and introspective subtlety and "Don't Stop Believin'" crossed with "Red Barchetta" (and fifes, at least) all sound fairly approachable, then there's Leviathan. Massive Conspiracy Against All Life is approachable, too, but in the inexorable sense of a black hole mounted on the front of a thresher meant for farmland where the corn has taken to fixing lead instead of nitrogen. Leviathan and Xasthur basically invented the one-man-ambient-abyss subgenre, but where Xasthur has warped towards sounding isolated by self-negation, like a slow-motion suicide, Wrest has modulated Leviathan into a kind of retrospective nihilism, not quite advocating or agitating for destruction as much as ghosting through ruins from an emotional apocalypse nobody else has noticed already happened. The advanced copies of this album had different names on all the songs, and it didn't make the slightest bit of difference, in a superficial sense because the voices in Leviathan songs are mostly the wrecked muttering of the ruefully damned, but maybe more interestingly because in a disturbing way language is part of what we've already lost.

Septicflesh: Communion

Whatever passes through Leviathan's veil and survives will look different. Septicflesh's theory, I guess, is that the next ruling hominid will look like a half-Korean/half-Egyptian elk with horns made of inverted adobe tube-socks. I'm not sure what the evolutionary thinking is with this creature, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to argue with it. In addition to the horns, it has a very big orchestra, and it makes records that make Wagner sound like Ellis Paul.


7

Dir en grey: Uroboros

In the net age, nothing is more than two or three jumps from anything else, and any two things you ask about are thereafter directly linked by virtue of your question. So if the Greeks in Septicflesh can invoke ancient Egypt and Persia and H.P. Lovecraft, then obviously the Japanese in Dir en grey can do whatever they want with Gnostic worm-icons. My Japanese is a lot (indeed, infinitely) better than my Greek, but in this case this isn't much more useful than knowing what the radio presets go to in the car that's running over you. I heard somewhere on the order of a thousand different kinds of antagonistic fury this year, and Dir en grey may still be at once the most technically proficient band and the one that, when they hit their Panic pedals, sounds the most genuinely and immediately unnerving. I'm not sure whether it's a tribute to, or a transgression against, the idea of eternal cyclicality to simply eat the whole worm, but now I have an idea what it tastes like.


8

Cynic: Traced in Air

If there's a stranger demonstration than Vertebrae of how far extreme metal has come, it's that Cynic were once considered a Death Metal band. This was always more true by association than by composition, but with the benefit of fifteen extra years of context, their at-once understated and hyperarticulated no-beat-missed second album now sounds much more obviously like King Crimson after a rusty cistern of coffee and a weekend of belated and more than a little befuddled listening to an old LP copy of Master of Puppets misfiled in a Hawkwind sleeve.


9

Gyöngyvér: Világok Virága

One of two albums on these lists that I didn't pay for in any form, in this case because I couldn't figure out how to, this was not just my favorite Hungarian album of the year (not as faint praise as it might sound, as I heard two), but gothic enough to displace a very fine Moonspell record, and maybe a better HIM record than anything since Love Metal.


10

In Flames: A Sense of Purpose

I think I hated every new "melodic death metal" band I heard this year almost instantly, and most of them were probably trying to sound exactly like this, but apparently transitivity doesn't quite hold across death. Something is subtly but importantly different between sounding like this and trying to sound like this, maybe. Or maybe I had only one hole in my heart for this sound, and In Flames filled it. Or maybe I'm just pleased by the idea that the co-creators of a new kind of Extreme now qualify as Traditional, just as New Wave slides into Classic Rock. Whatever, any list that has Death Magnetic above this I suspect of plain ignorance or worse.


Albums (Non-Metal)


1

Frightened Rabbit: The Midnight Organ Fight

My daughter loves dancing. I guess we got her started by demonstrating the basic idea, but she careens around the living room wheeling her arms with an enthusiasm so instinctive that I suspect it comes at least in part from some agitated trilobite plunging into the primordial mosh-pit millennia ago. She'll dance to pretty much anything, which I attribute to a combination of her unflappable good nature and the fact that she's only 2'6" and I can (usually) keep the MacBook up out of her reach.

My wife loves dancing, too, but she's taller. Her nature is also good, but experience has demonstrated that she is, when provoked by metal (or at the other extreme by over-fluffy pop), flappable. For our best family dance parties with all three of us in attendance, we need other music. Bethany and I actually met talking about music, so there's ample precedent for this, and we have a fairly large area of basically overlapping taste. But we both have strong, quick, sub-rational (or is it super-rational?) reactions to things, so finding points of overlap is trickier than just finding areas. She made me a mix for my birthday, though, and my favorite song on it I liked so much I put three songs from that album on my mix for her on her birthday, and so Frightened Rabbit became our shared band of the year, and "Head Rolls Off" probably our most-played family dance song.

And although I made two separate lists again because I don't think interleaving the modes really helps anything, when I had to file a single critics-poll ballot, this was my #1. If metal is about magnifying emotions by projecting them, onto myth or imagination, then these tiny, fragile Frightened Rabbit songs, some of them beyond fragile to broken-and-taped-together, turn around and look through a magnifying glass at the cracks in their most mundane reality. Most of them are nominally breakup songs, some about breaking up with people and some about breaking up with ideas, but this is a lyrical genre, not a defeat, and done right, breakup songs are always about what you find in what you're left with. Life-affirming songs are often, and maybe necessarily, tinged with sadness. If they aren't, it's probably not life they're affirming. So these suspended moments of confusion and loss belong to the same emotional core, to me, as Tanya Donelly's buoyantly resolute "Keeping You", B and my marriage theme-song, and "Head Rolls Off"'s "While I'm alive, I'll make tiny changes on Earth" could go on our new family crest. The other way to deal with the resistance of the air is to just draw your listeners closer, and Frightened Rabbit may be the third vertex, with Low and Tori Amos, of a quiet triangle of intimacy I didn't know until now I was waiting to complete.


2

Puressence: Don't Forget to Remember

My music-discovery methods are changing, and my life is changing, and yet every once in a while something reaches back to a beginning. Puressence already reminded me excitingly of the Chameleons when I ran across them ten years ago, but somehow (helped by the lack of US labels) I kept losing track of them. And in fact this (fourth) album was released in September 2007 in the UK, but I didn't discover its existence until I ran across it on iTunes in January 2008, and since it never had a physical American release, arguably its effective domestic release-date was when, in February, it was featured as the first iTunes Editors' Choice.

I like to think that it was my iTunes purchase of the album, which at the time had no reviews or "Listeners Also Bought" links or mixes, that nudged it in the direction of whatever "editors" subsequently endorsed it, but really I feel more surprised than responsible. Puressence is one of those bands that used to feel like almost the rule in my life, music from somewhere else that nobody near me has ever heard of, which thus seems to exist solely for my own solipsistic transport. The Chameleons were like that, and the Lucy Show, and perhaps most definitively the Comsat Angels; and later, Whipping Boy and Ultrasound and Geneva: bands making dense, reticent, atmospheric anthems with internal catharses you have to find your way into rather than the kind on the radio here that you have to avoid being trampled by.


3

Sigur Rós: Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust

At times it's tempting to believe that the dominion of night is inexorable, and that we capitulate helplessly to pervasive isolation with cycles of fear and fury, each more desperate than the last. But then there are these sons of northern darkness who seem immune, staging tiny conspiracies in secret support of everything and next breaths.


4

M83: Saturdays=Youth

Mid-80s synth-pop has been pretty much continuously revived in rounds ever since its first quick fade, but rarely with such weightless grace: Propaganda's expressionist cool mitigated by Thompson Twins delicacy and Cocteau Twins shimmer, Flesh for Lulu's fizzy whir rebalanced by early Talk Talk translucency and Modern English chime, Psychocandy's tidal buzz interleaved with The Flat Earth's cinematic melancholy.


5

Katy Perry: One of the Boys

I read enough music-press to know that Katy Perry defaulted on somebody's idea of her dues at some point, but not enough to understand whose (could Jill Sobule have that many children (or exes) old enough to blog yet?), and anyway not until after I heard this record in a record-store that has since gone bankrupt, though not because I didn't do my part that day. The two matched-pair gender-tease gimmick songs may win or lose you, but if you made it through She's So Unusual or any Pink album, you can handle this, and if you wonder what it might sound like if Hannah Montana had grown up next door to Liz Phair (and Liz Phair had never heard of Avril Lavigne), maybe you should.


6

Delays: Everything's the Rush

I don't remember the last time I heard anybody else mention Icicle Works' If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song or the Boo Radleys' Wake Up!, but one of the advantages of repeating history instead of struggling to remember it all is that you can repeat whole swaths of it at once. In my next wishful British alternate-history, a jubilant Puressence/Delays mock-feud will replace all the petulant Oasis/Blur sniping.


7

Ida: Lovers Prayers + My Fair, My Dark

If Sigur Rós made their records in a Brooklyn brownstone living-room while their kids were asleep, we'd have two of these bands.


8

Bob Mould: District Line

My vote for comeback moral of the year: unpacking your guitars is always a good idea. But keeping them out and tuned and waiting is even better.


9

Shearwater: Rook + The Snow Leopard

The closest I've ever heard anybody come to pulling off a plausible homage to Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden, albeit as if Eden was a desert amusement park now long abandoned to returning sand and feral cornets.


10

Asian Kung-Fu Generation: World World World + Surf Bungaku Kamakura

Guitars, bass, drums, singing. On paper there is nothing even remotely distinctive about this band, and how hard can these songs be if they can bang out two albums of them only seven months apart? But we keep making bands like this, all over the planet, precisely because the structure doesn't determine their character. They sound different in Mali and Liverpool and Austin and Yokohama, and maybe just as different when they're AKFG or BUMP OF CHICKEN or the pillows, and maybe different in the irreducible ways that we are different.


Other Songs


1

Deathspell Omega: "Chaining the Katechon" (EP)

You might feel inclined to object that it's cheating to call a 22:12 armageddon "a song" just because it doesn't have internal indices. But you'll only goad them into making the next one even longer. Although, if anything, this EP is even more monolithically overpowering in its compressed continuity than Fas was in twice the length and labeled parts. Together they would probably constitute a new genre if there seemed like any chance that anybody else could play in it, or even replicate the tuning. I'm not sure there's ever been a significantly better demonstration of what it means for music to have a purely internal logic, nor a more explicative aural rendition of proving the existence of a pervasive universal ether by methodically shredding it.


2

Nightwish: "The Escapist" (from The Sound of Nightwish Reborn)

Frightened Rabbit: "It's Christmas So We'll Stop" (single)

But then, of course, the universe rarely actually ends. A music may have as insular an internal logic as it likes, but then it finishes and you get to put on something else. Extremism is the love of one extreme. Counterpose extremes and you get life. You get an "internal" logic of your own encompassing experience, which can be as vast and erratic as you like. Armageddon can segue to Nightwish sounding like The Nutcracker rewritten for Valkyries, with maybe Anette's best demonstration of the selfless lightness that Tarja would never have allowed them. And escapist pomp can collapse back into possibly the new greatest modern Christmas song ever, a quiet anthem not of exonerating illusion but of the stubborn yearning wish for an excuse to believe in ourselves.


3

Mountain Goats: "Marduk T-Shirt Men's Room Incident" (from Heretic Pride)

Wetnurse: "Life at Stake" (from Invisible City)

And so we can look at strangers and see how they are us, and we can find and lose and find our way.


4

Pink: "It's All Your Fault" (from Funhouse)

OLIVIA: "Rain" (from Trinka Trinka)

We can learn our qualities in other people's disappointments, and catch glimpses of our fragility in moments of release.


5

Uh Huh Her: "Wait Another Day" (from Common Reaction)

Mia: "Mausen" (from Willkommen im Club)

We can be sustained by patience, and levitated by memories of balloons.


6

Retribution Gospel Choir: "What She Turned Into" (from Retribution Gospel Choir)

Zapruder Point: "An Arm & a Leg" (from Soda & Sympathy)

We can take apart our longings and make them into splints for hearts,


7

L'Arc~en~Ciel: "NEXUS 4" (from NEXUS 4/SHINE)

Ihsahn: "Emancipation" (from angL)

or we can let the spinning stars dizzy us.


8

DragonForce: "A Flame for Freedom" (from Ultra Beatdown)

Bob Catley: "We Are Immortal" (from Immortal)

We can take our own silliness just seriously enough to let it bootstrap us out of our self-doubt,


9

I Nine: "Seven Days of Lonely" (from Heavy Weighs the King)

Jewel: "Two Become One" (from Perfectly Clear)

or score our helplessness as serenity.


10

Týr: "Gatu Rima" (from Land)

Grand Magus: "Like The Oar Strikes The Water" (from Iron Will)

We can leave any battered island,


Covers

Cradle of Filth: "Stay" (from Harder, Darker, Faster: Thornography Deluxe, originally by Shakespears Sister)

Zapruder Point: "Artificial Light" (from Soda & Sympathy, originally by Rainer Maria)

even our own,


Purextra

Puressence: "April In July" + "3rd Degree" (from Drop Down to Earth single)

to search sometimes for currents


Vault

Belle & Sebastian: "(My Girl's Got) Miraculous Technique" (from The BBC Sessions)

Lucksmiths: "Anyone's Guess" (from Spring a Leak)

and sometimes for shores,


Soundtrack

Garry Schyman: "Praan" (for Where the Hell Is Matt? · Dancing 2008)

and lose and find ourselves among people we could be.

          Comment on Hurdy Gurdy (Daniel Seideneder and Daniel Pfeiffer, 2011) by Daniel Pfeiffer   
Dear Mr. Glenn, thank you very much for review, critic and compliments for our film. We are very happy to get such a good feedback about Hurdy Gurdy. Carlos asked about the Musik. It is a new composition, especially made for our film. The title is Hurdy Gurdy. The composer is Ben Hansen. We shoot the Film in Estonia with Tilt/shift lenses (real world) and in Hamburg at Wunderwelt (Model World). So we combined the real world with a model world. We try to connect both worlds, with editing and color correction, so that the difference is hardly recognizable. If you have any questions or what ever, it would please me, when you contact me.

          The 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship Results (Part Four)   
Welcome to the fourth post of a miniseries of posts I am going to make about the 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship tournament. Most people don't realize that this tournament isn't just sixteen teams competing to win the gold medal. There are dozens of countries in various divisions competing to rise up the ladder of international ice hockey. In this, the 78th edition of the IIHF tournament, there are actually 46 teams trying to improve their international ranking and someday grab the gold medal.

Links for Part One, Two, and Three are right here, where I painstakingly checked out Division III, Division II B, and Division II A respectively.

Yesterday's post described Division II A in all its glory. Congratulations to the Estonian national team for clobbering Division II A and moving up into Division I B for next year's tournament. I-B is the subject of today's post, as it is the third tier of the IIHF tournament. This year's iteration took place in beautiful Vilnius, Lithuania from April 20th to 26th and THANK GOD SOME NHLERS ARE IN THIS TOURNAMENT. All due respect to other leagues in Europe, I know nothing about their players unless they played at some point in North America. It's been a struggle reporting on these lower tiers but finally I have a chance to talk about players I am familiar with. Here are the tournament standings:

All standings are courtesy of Wikipedia.
Poland advances in to Division I A and moves one step closer to getting a chance to play in the top tier. Poland's win is all the more impressive because they were able to defeat a Lithuania team led by this man.

Image courtesy of Lisa Gansky via Wikipedia.

That's right, it's New Jersey Devils forward Danius Zubrus! He had a great tournament with 9 points in 5 games, but the Lithuanians fells short of rising to the top in a very competitive division. The top four teams finished within three points of each other and there were several one goal games that were key in setting up sight a tight contest. Great Britain had a great showing this year, winning a 4-2 contest against the eventual champion, Poland.

Here are the tournament's top scorers:


Zubrus and his linemates were the toast of the tournament. Shoutout to Colin Shields of Great Britain, who netted a hatrick against the Poles. Most impressive. I predict next tournament Great Britain pushes up the standings and contends to move up to Division I A.

Here are the tournament goaltenders:


Polish goaltender Przemyslaw Odrobny was arguably the MVP of the Division I B tournament, winning four games and only conceding four goals with a .955 save percentage. This division, more-so than the previous ones, was very tight series of contests that turned into goaltending duels. Those are some impressive stat lines for the goaltenders. The tournament directive selected Zubrus as top forward, Odrobny as goaltender, and Alan Letang from Canada...er, Croatia for defenseman. Letang had a cup of coffee in the NHL, playing in 14 games with only 2 PIM to show for it. He has been a mainstay in the German and Austrian leagues for the vast majority of his career.

Tomorrow we visit Division I A, the second highest tier on the IIHF tournament. Thanks for taking the time to check out these surveys of the tournaments, it's been a pleasure writing them. See you again tomorrow!
          The 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship Results (Part Three)   
Welcome to the third of a miniseries of posts I am going to make about the 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship tournament. Most people don't realize that this tournament isn't just sixteen teams competing to win the gold medal. There are dozens of countries in various divisions competing to rise up the ladder of international ice hockey. In this, the 78th edition of the IIHF tournament, there are actually 46 teams trying to improve their international ranking and someday grab the gold medal.

Click here and here for parts one and two, respectively, where we had a look at Division III and Division II B.

As I mentioned in Part Two of the mega-post, Division II is sliced into group A and B. Group A is the upper tier of the division, and represents the fourth tier of the IIHF tournament. This year's edition was hosted in beautiful Belgrade, Serbia, from April 9th to April 15th. Here are the standings:

All charts courtesy of Wikipedia.

Estonia dominated this division, going 5-0 and only giving up 8 goals in five games. They were last year's losing team in Division I B and sank into the lower tier. It's a recurring trend for relegated teams to bounce between divisions until they can improve just enough to hold on to a slot in the division. Host Serbia improved on its fifth place finish last year, finishing 3rd. Israel just misses holding on to a spot in the division, losing a 4-3 decision in overtime to Belgium as well as a 4-3 contest to Iceland in a shootout. The 16-3 thumping to Estonia didn't help matters, and now Israel will have to claw its way back up into a division group that had four teams finish within three points of one another.

Here are the tournament's top scorers:



And the top goaltenders:



Directorate selected all-stars were Estonia's Robert Rooba for forward, Iceland's Ingvar Thor Jönsson for defenseman, and Serbia's Arsenije Ranković for goaltender. Yes, that guy's middle name is Thor. Iceland's players always have the best names. Remember Gunnar Stahl from D2: The Mighty Ducks?

This tournament finally featured players that were possible to find in European leagues across the continent. Rooba's an SM-liiga player for the Espoo Blues, and this season had four points in 36 games. Eliezer Sherbatov is an Israeli hockey player who had notable time with The Montreal Junior Hockey Club from 2009 to 2011, later with with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. He's currently trying out for teams in France. Oren Eizenman is an Israeli-Canadian centre who had two brothers who played hockey as well, but he most recently played in the Asia League with the Nippon Paper Cranes before playing for Israel last year and this year in the IIHF tournament. He had a cup of coffee in the AHL with the Syracuse Crunch and Connecticut Whale in 2010-11, but never got a whiff of the NHL. The year before hit pit stop in the AHL he scored 19 points in 15 games with the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL. If you like weird random facts about hockey players, Oren's father, Brett, helped to found the Israel Baseball League. Hey, I thought it was cool.

Next up for this mega-series is Division I A and finally we see some NHLers in the lower tiers of the tournament. Stay tuned for the inevitable Dainius Zubrus love-fest. Go Lithuania!
          Walpurgis Night   

Tonight is Walpurgis Night. Saint Walpurga was, supposedly, an 8th century nun whose relics were transferred on April 30th and her name was given to the holiday. As frequently happened during Christianity's spread across Europe, this was merely an instance of co-opting and Christianizing a much older holiday.

Before Saint Walpurga was dreamed up, 30 April was known as day that Odin died attempting to retrieve the knowledge of the runes and, ever since, the barrier between the world of the dead and the living is at its weakest on this night. For this reason, Odin's faithful build bonfires, play drums and (nowadays) shoot off guns tonight to ward off evil. In some German-speaking areas, tonight is known as Hexxenacht because on this night witches are said to mount their broomsticks and fly from near and far to Brocken Mountain where they "hold revels with their Gods."

In rural Bavaria, children sometimes play pranks-- wreaking destruction on gardens, TP-ing homes, smearing toothpaste in places unintended by the manufacturer, and writing graffiti. In the Rhineland boys bring trees hung with colored streamers to the houses of girls they like. A tree decorated only with white streamers indicates dislike for the recipient. In southern Sweden children gather greenery at twilight and adorn their homes. In Finland, they drink sparkling wine and sima (a mead) and burn strawmen imbued with ill-will and bad luck. In Estonia and  Germany, girls dress as witches and make merry.

          Liberty they name is no longer America   

If there is a movement to take America back it is not reflected in the below. In one years time we have dropped in freedom ranking from 17th position (which is bad enough) to 20th position. "If" there is such a movement there needs to be more coal thrown in the fire. Much, much more coal, blood, sweat and tears.

Daily Caller - United States Drops In Overall Freedom Ranking

A new report on the freedom of countries around the world ranks the United States 20th, putting countries like Chile and the United Kingdom ahead of the U.S.

Last year, the U.S. was ranked 17th, but a steady decline of economic freedom and "rule of law" has dropped the level of freedom, according to the Cato Institute, Fraser Institute and the Swiss Liberales Institut, which created the study together.

Co-author of the report Ian Vasquez told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the steady growth of government and increased regulations of business and labor contribute to the U.S. low rating.

"Since the year 2000, the U.S. has been on a decline in terms of economic freedom," Vasquez told TheDCNF.

The other main reason for the United States' low rank comes from the "rule of law" measure. Vasquez told TheDCNF that increased invasions of privacy through the war on drugs and war on terror have contributed to the decline in freedom.

Also, the increased use of eminent domain is factored in as a violation of property rights.

The other indicators used to make the list were security and safety, movement, religion, association, assembly and civil society, expression, relationships, size of government, legal system and property rights, access to sound money, freedom to trade internationally, regulation of credit, labor and business.

Based on those measures, here are the top 25 countries.

1. Hong Kong

2. Switzerland

3. Finland

4. Denmark

5. New Zealand

6. Canada

7. Australia

8. Ireland

9. United Kingdom

10. Sweden

11. Norway

12. Austria

12. Germany

14. Iceland

14. Netherlands

16. Malta

17. Luxembourg

18. Chile

19. Mauritius

And then finally..

20. United States

Just after the U.S.,

21. Czech Republic

22. Estonia

22. Belgium

24. Taiwan

25. Portugal

"The U.S. performance is worrisome and shows that the United States can no longer claim to be the leading bastion of liberty in the world," Vasquez wrote."In addition to the expansion of the regulatory state and drop in economic freedom, the war on terror, the war on drugs, and the erosion of property rights due to greater use of eminent domain all likely have contributed to the U.S. decline."

Frederic Bastiat: What, then, is the law? It is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense. ... since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force -- for the same reason -- cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individual groups. ... But, unfortunately, law by no means confines itself to its proper functions. And when it has exceeded its proper functions, it has not done so merely in some inconsequential and debatable matters. The law has gone further than this; it has acted in direct opposition to its own purpose. The law has been used to destroy its own objective: It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real purpose was to respect. The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense.

An Ice Zero Swim is the toughest standard physiologically, psychologically, operationally and generally logistically in the ice swimming community. An Ice Zero Swim is an Ice Mile that must be completed entirely in water temperature below 1°C (33.8°F).

There have been 10 athletes who have completed this unique ice swimming challenge with several more ice swimmers slated to make their own attempts somewhere in the Arctic Circle, down in the Southern Ocean of Antarctica, or other open bodies of water with extreme temperatures and conditions:

Ice Zero Swimmers:
1. Ram Barkai (South Africa) - 10 Ice Zero Miles
2. Jaimie Monahan (USA) - 6 Ice Zero Miles
2. Ger Kennedy (Ireland) - 6 Ice Zero Miles
4. Ryan Stramrood (South Africa) - 5 Ice Zero Miles
5. Kieron Palframan (South Africa) - 4 Ice Zero Miles
6. Toks Viviers (South Africa) - 3 Ice Zero Miles
6. Henri Kaarma (Estonia) - 3 Ice Zero Miles
8. Aleksandr Brylin (Russia) - 1 Ice Zero Mile
8. Andrey Sychyovv (Russia) - 1 Ice Zero Mile
8. Gavin Pike (South Africa) - 1 Ice Zero Mile

Monahan is the only women in the top 5 ice swimming zero community. She has completed the following International Ice Swimming Association-certified one-mile Ice Zero Swims:

          U.S. picks up the tab for China's security   

All right, kids, we’ll begin our class on world affairs, with an article from today’s Herald Tribune.
It says that the United States is sending robotic mine clearing equipment to help protect tanker traffic through the Straits of Hormuz, in the event the Iranians try to block that waterway. Those narrow Straits, you’ll remember, are how most of the oil from the Middle East and the Gulf is shipped to the world.
Protecting them is the main reason that the United States maintains a large naval base in Bahrain for its aircraft carriers and destroyers and mine sweepers and so on. All this costs us tens of billions of dollars a year. But we’ve always been told that it’s worth it.
Back in 1980, Jimmy Carter warnedthat the U.S. would go to war to protect that vital region. That kind of thinking got the U.S. involved in two hugely expensive Gulf wars, and it has remained bedrock policy.
This past September, for instance, the U.S. carried out a massive joint naval exercise in the Gulf. Among the other countries practicing what they would do to keep the Straits open in the event of hostilities, were the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Yemen, Jordan, New Zealand, Estonia, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, Canada—but, apparently, not China.

Which, kids, is kind of ironic—Why?

Because with the huge increase in domestic petroleum production, the U.S. will soon no longer rely at all on the Gulf. In fact, the country for whom the region and the Straits of Hormuz are essential for its petroleum needs is China.
You would think Americans would be furious that they’re paying huge sums for China’s oil security. Indeed, following Jimmy Carter’s logic, it’s the Chinese who should carry the burden of patrolling the Gulf. But that specter terrifies many American officials.
In the same way, you would think the U.S. might welcome China’s new naval modernization program. They don’t. In fact—though the U.S. navy is much mightier than China’s, many—like Mitt Romney—argue that the U.S. should ramp up its own naval program to keep far ahead of the Chinese.
But, wait, the story is even more complicated: The reason the U.S. navy is bringing that sophisticated new mine clearing equipment to the Gulf is to free up other U.S. ships currently patrolling those waterways. Free them up to go where?
To the Pacific—to join the forces that Obama is shifting to the region to confront-----the Chinese.
O.K. class. Any questions?

          Migranti, Minniti a Parigi per il vertice tra Italia, Francia e Germania. Il ministro punta a un'intesa prima del Consiglio di Tallin    

Prima il vertice tra Italia, Francia, Germania convocato per domani a Parigi e al quale parteciperà anche il commissario per gli affari interni Ue Avramopoulos; poi un dibattito in plenaria al Parlamento europeo in programma mercoledì a Strasburgo con i presidenti di Commissione e Consiglio europeo Juncker e Tusk; infine giovedì e venerdì il Consiglio Affari Interni a Tallin, in Estonia. L'agenda sull'emergenza migranti vede tre appuntamenti cruciali alla ricerca di una difficile soluzione, così come delicata da percorrere è la strada del blocco dei porti alle navi straniere, su cui si affaccia anche l'opzione Malta come una delle strade da battere.

È un dato di fatto che i numeri registrino ormai una crescita esponenziale. L'ultimo sbarco di queste ore ha portato a Catania su una nave militare svedese 650 persone: a bordo anche nove morti. Il Viminale certifica che nei primi sei mesi dell'anno sono sbarcati 83.360 migranti, con un balzo del 18,7%.

E solo durante lo scorso fine settimana, riporta l'Unhcr, sono arrivati 12.600 tra immigrati e rifugiati. Dagli incontri tra i 'grandi' dei prossimi giorni il ministro dell'Interno, Marco Minniti, vuole portare a casa un protocollo di azione per le navi delle Ong straniere e una più equa distribuzione dei migranti che arrivano via mare. Ma le affermazioni arrivate ieri dall'Estonia, tramite il ministro dell'interno Andres Anvelt, fanno temere per l'incontro di Tallin. Anvelt, che guiderà i lavori dei colleghi Ue, ha detto a chiare lettere: "non daremo nessuna risposta, ma ascolteremo l'Italia" per vedere "come affrontare la questione della protezione delle frontiere, dei porti e le relazioni con la Libia". Parole che hanno indotto Minniti a preparare il terreno con i ministri degli Interni di Francia e Germania nell'incontro di Parigi convocato domani alle 20. L'obiettivo dell'Italia è strappare un'intesa preliminare a tre per arrivare in Estonia con un piano chiaro e il segnale arrivato dalla Francia, che si è offerta di ospitare l'incontro, è interpretato come un buon inizio. Ci sarà anche Avramopoulos e si delineeranno in via preliminare le strade da percorrere perché Ue e Stati membri sostengano l'Italia: sblocco di fondi, lavoro con i Paesi di origine in Africa, aiuti nelle operazioni di registrazione delle persone già presenti nel Paese e possibili candidati all'asilo.

Resta in piedi anche l'ipotesi di ragionare sui porti e l'approdo delle navi straniere. La questione è complessa. Da quanto si apprende, non risultano arrivate a Bruxelles richieste italiane per cambiare il mandato dell'operazione congiunta di Frontex Triton per superarne i vincoli e far sbarcare le navi dell'operazione anche in altri Stati dell'Ue: questo, per altro, è tutt'altro che semplice, perché richiederebbe l'accordo di tutti gli Stati partecipanti. Ma il vero obiettivo non sono le navi Frontex, ma piuttosto quelle delle Ong con bandiera straniera. E la distinzione da fare è quella tra soccorso in mare, con relativi obblighi, e accoglienza. Se le norme impongono di soccorrere chi è in pericolo di vita in mare portandolo nel porto sicuro più vicino, anche altri tra i 28 stati Ue potrebbero essere chiamati in causa, come Malta. Mentre sul piano dell'accoglienza, si lavora per riprendere in mano gli accordi di rilocation, restati lettera morta.

          The Untamed Web   
For over a century, propaganda war has been one of the greatest weapons among the countries and blocks. From Hitler to the WMD gaffe, the mighty and the powerful have used the media to convince the masses across the world about stories that never happened. In retrospect, it appears as if the past and future events were premeditated, orchestrated and implemented with impeccable precision. Thank God, the premeditated and orchestrated outcomes of such events are not predictable.

But, since the dawn of the internet era, the clout on the propaganda game is shifting towards a small group of people from different countries and ethnic groups. They might be small, but their collective power has helped topple governments and shutdown biggest corporations. They might look different and speak different languages. But, they all have a common goal: Fight against the unjust. And, the superpowers or the rich or the powerful can do nothing about it. Thanks to the Web and Social Networking. It is called the Cyber War.

This is how it works to wage a Cyber War.

All you need is to mobilize an intensely fast-paced Internet forum with hundreds of determined activists and a simple piece of software called a Low Orbit Ion Cannon. Activists choose targets by consensus, download the LOIC – initially developed to help Internet security experts test website vulnerability to DDoS attacks – and start firing packets of data at the targeted website.

• Role in Tunisia’s “Jasmine Revolution”.
• Wikileaks-inspired attacks on Mastercard and Visa.
• Attack on Zimbabwe government (seen as enemies of free speech).
• Attack on Estonian government (due to a row between Estonia and Russia)

There have been reports about Tunisian inspired demonstrations in Yemen and Algeria. I can imagine a group of activist working day and night to facilitate demonstrations and add fuel to fire. Most of these activists claim that they do not have bad intentions and they consider themselves as good Samaritans fighting for the weak against the unjust powers.

Pen is mightier than the sword. Cliché, but it is apt for any generation, as it reflects the power of the human mind and spirit. Books and Newspapers are used to rekindle the human spirit, but the power of it has lost its thrust and reliance, as most of the World events are perceived by the public as orchestrated. Thanks to the Corporations that have tamed the offline media.

The Internet has evolved as an effective online platform for Social Networking. The intuitiveness and accessibility of the Internet for the masses has made it so powerful and intensive to stir the human spirit across boundaries.

Thanks to the untamed Web. At least, it is untamed for now.......

20 oktober 2013

During the Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France festival Oksasenkatu 11 will be host to three long duration performances, one urban dance intervention and an improvised electronic orchestra of homemade instruments. 

Saturday 19th October:

Klo 11:00-17:30 Peter Shaw (Canada), Corporal Outis (USA) // long durational performances

Klo 13:00-17:00  Vloeistof (Netherlands) // urban dance performance starting outside Oksasenkatu 11

Klo 17:00-17:30 Krachkisten Orchestra (Germany) // sound performance with homemade instruments

Sunday 20th October:

Klo 11:00-18:00  Jeffery Byrd (USA), Corporal Outis (USA) // long durational performance 

********************************

THIS IS (NOT ABOUT) EXPERIENCE - Peter Shaw (Canada)

For the first six hours, there will be a camera on a tripod, so that the audience may photograph and/or video the performance. The artist will start out in blue socks, blue pants, blue shirt, and blue mask. He will, then, spend another six hours constructing a suit from chicken wire, with himself as mold. He will replace, piece by piece, the clothes with the wire. Starting with the feet, then going up towards the head, ending with the arms, he will cage himself as tightly as possible. Finally, the artist will put the blue clothes on top of the wire suit. Sealed in, he will leave, taking everything with him in a suitcase. He will then walk for 3 kilometers to the city centre, and begin to remove the chicken wire, stepping on it, and placing it back in the suitcase.

Peter Shaw was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. Currently studying in the Theatre Department at Concordia University, Montreal, he has also worked on public performance interventions in Berlin and Erlangen, Germany. He frequently performs as a solo artist, but has worked on larger group theatre and performance projects.  Shaw has also worked with sound installation, video art, and electroacoustic music. His performance practice attempts to explore various degrees and thresholds of pain and endurance, as well as researching and redefining methods of documentation, reception, and interaction. - http://dimancherougefestivals.org/2013/09/05/peter-shaw-canada/

Welcome to the Outside World by Vloiestof (Netherlands)

On Saturday 19th October 13:00-17:00 dutch dance company Vloeistof will perform 'Welcome to the Outside World' nearby Oksasenkatu 11. The meeting point for the performance is Oksasenkatu 11 gallery where a festival attendent will assist audiences. 

“A dance experience that provides you with a different perspective on dance”.

We would love to invite you to participate in ths special urban dance experience, taking place in a secret location in the streets of Helsinki....

Times: 13:00 / 13.45 / 14.30 / 15.15 / 16.00 / 16.45

The audience view the performance from inside a car: 5 spectators per performance (6 performances a day)

Participation is free but advanced registration is required. To reserve your place please send an email with your name, number of places you wish to reserve and preferred time and date to publiciteit@vloeistof.nl

'Welcome to the Outside World'

in a car you can surreptitiously and unabashedly spy on the passersby. You are part of the whole, but separated from the outside world. Protected by the cage of glass and steel you are an anonymous voyeur who sees and experiences intimacy. You become aware of yourself as a voyeur. Vloeistof places its dancers in the un-orchestrated reality of a road. Cyclists, cars, trucks and pedestrians pass by. The frame of the window provides the cadre though which all things seem to have a purpose. What do I see? Where should I look? Who is a part of the plot? Who is watching? What are my expectations? In this setting Vloeistof uses a suspension that teases. With subtle distortions and interventions the choreographer-duo in a striking manner discloses behaviour in the urban environment.

Krachkisten Orchestra (Germany)

The Krachkisten Orchestra produces improvised electronic sound using homemade analogue instruments, and incorporates the styles of various genres including noise, polka, electro  and hip hop. The Krachkisten Orchester’s homemade instruments were inspired by Luigi Russolo, who invented the “Intonarumori” over a 100 years ago. Each instrument has a unique sound generator, taken from toys, alarm systems and simple laboratory instruments.

The Krachkisten Orchestra is a German-based group that was founded in 2009. Consisting of between 9-15 members, the ensemble is constantly growing and searching for non-musicians or dilettantes and new monophonic sounds. Tintin Patrone (Christina Köhler) is a German musical instrument sculptresses, musician and performance artist. She resides and works in Hamburg. Inspired by Punk Rock music and attitudes, Tintin Patrone examines the interface and coherence between music, art, sound and gesture, using methods of Futurism and Fluxus. She operates in an area of art and music ranging between the activities of an instrument maker, performance-artist and ‘krachmacheur.’ Above all, she is concerned to create free space which is marked by self-determined creativity and a feeling of responsibility for one another.

If you can dish it out, I can take it - Corporal Outis (USA)

In “If You Can Dish it out, I Can Take It,” Corporal Outis will watch several other durational performance works presented in the festival from beginning to end.  He will be anonymously (but conspicuously) dressed in the white shiny armor of a Stormtrooper. Most people wander in and out of durational performance works, watching only bits and pieces.  Corporal Outis will dedicate himself to watching them in their entirety, an endurance performance in its own right, where the audience member’s gaze is a form of active, constant surveillance. You are welcome to watch Corporal Outis as he watches the other artists’ performances.

Corporal Outis is a conceptual and performance artist interested in mapping systems of being and perception onto one another, exploring the points at which those systems are analogous and the points at which they are not. CO’s work tends to be characterized by a sense of humor, an exploration of the aesthetics of presentation, and a tension between data and phenomena. CO makes work that is friendly and accessible to the average person while also posing experimental propositions about the field for consideration by other artists. CO believes art can be entertaining without sacrificing its sophistication or depth.

Symphony #3 (480 Beautiful Notes)Jeffery Byrd (USA)

“One of the great challenges of modern life is to find beauty and meaning in our daily existence. So many of us live with boring routines that we complete simply to awake tomorrow and do it again. I would like to create a performance that engages these issues. Ordinary Post-It notes are normally used for the most mundane communication. Can these small and lovely bits of paper be employed to create poetry? Can repetitive action lead us to beauty?”

Jeffery Byrd is a performance and video artist who has presented work all over the globe. He has exhibited in over 75 group exhibitions and 15 solo exhibitions, and has performed at such notable venues as the Lincoln Center in New York and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Byrd is a frequent lecturer at art schools and universities, including Parson’s School of Design in New York, University of the Arts in Philadelphia, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

          Event: Dimanche Rouge Festival at XL Art Space   
Regiones transitorias 2012

19 oktober 2013

Andres Montes (Mexico) and Vloeistof (Netherlands) will each present a different perspective to urban actions, interventions, and performance during the Dimanche Rouge festival 17-20th October 2013. 

****************************************************

Wordactions by Andres Montes 

During the Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France festival artist Andres Montes will develop a body of work titled 'Wordactions' which is a series of actions and interventions that will take place around Helsinki and viewed via traces and documentation in the gallery space. 

Montes' work at XL Art Space can be viewed on Thursday 17th October 12:00-20:00, Friday 18th October 12:00-20:00, and Saturday 19th October 12:00-18:00.

In addition audiences are invited to witness Montes present his work on two occasions:

# Thursday 17th October 6pm (for 6:30pm)

# Saturday 19th October 4pm 

Andres Montes is a multidisciplinary artist born in Mexico and trained in the United States, currently, living and working in Madrid, Spain. His work “[W]HOLEHOUSE” will also make an appearance during the festival, which is part of the Identity Tactics series, anonymous and ephemeral interventions of public spaces.  In “[W]HOLEHOUSE,” the actions attempt to explore the processes involved around the creation of territory and its relation to the binomial Memory/Identity. The piece’s intention is to underline the frailty of our relation to space and our belonging to a specific geography.

'Welcome to the Outside World'

in a car you can surreptitiously and unabashedly spy on the passersby. You are part of the whole, but separated from the outside world. Protected by the cage of glass and steel you are an anonymous voyeur who sees and experiences intimacy. You become aware of yourself as a voyeur. Vloeistof places its dancers in the un-orchestrated reality of a road. Cyclists, cars, trucks and pedestrians pass by. The frame of the window provides the cadre though which all things seem to have a purpose. What do I see? Where should I look? Who is a part of the plot? Who is watching? What are my expectations? In this setting Vloeistof uses a suspension that teases. With subtle distortions and interventions the choreographer-duo in a striking manner discloses behaviour in the urban environment.

10 oktober 2013

You are warmly welcome to join us for a performance evening at XL Art Space on Thursday 10th October 2013. Joining us are artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö, Karl Larsson and Hanna Eliasson. 

//

in here it is yesterday, performance by Nastja Säde Rönkkö (FI/UK)

(duration 45 minutes) 

in here it is yesterday is one-to-one performance in which space for dialogue and intimate encounter is created between two people. The performance uses individual and collective memory as a methodology for an investigation into the notion of falling in and out of love. In a personal and playful manner these memories are evoked though music, darkness and technology.  

Nastja Säde Rönkkö is a featured artist in the performance festival 'dimanche rouge estonia-finland-france' which will take place in Helsinki and Espoo from 17th-20th October.

//

Memories III, soundscape performance by Karl Larsson (SWE) and Hanna Eliasson (SWE)

(duration 30 minutes)

A performance in which a 1000 images are tear apart by the artist, a reflection of time that have passed and as a personal psychological refreshment. This is made in a soundscape created by different music instruments. The memories are collage, a collage of Karl Larsson’s project (the one million project) and documentation of life for ten years.

Karl is Ptarmigan Tallinn's current artist in residence. His performance is made possible with support from Nordic Culture Point residency programme.

Policy Choices for a Digital AgeSmarter Europe

Over the past year Friends of Europe has crowdsourced ideas, opinions, insights and experiences from policymakers, industry and civil society, to think deeply about the implications of the 4thIndustrial Revolution.

We convened three high-level working groups, bringing together diverse, provocative and cutting-edge views. We posed questions that we felt would help us devise a set of policy choices that take a ‘whole economy, whole society’ approach to understanding how we prepare, plan for and take advantage of a digital age.

Now this Discussion Paper highlights key trends, developments and issues across all layers of the digital ecosystem. It aims to highlight public policies and private sector decision-making that affect our future.

The Paper serves as a forward-looking guide to critical questions on the state of the global and European digital economy, drawing on the broad community of policymakers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs and civil society representatives.

Authors include economist Michael Mandel; former US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Daniel A. Sepulveda; Future of Privacy Forum CEO Jules Polonetsky; UNI Global Union Equal Opportunities coordinator Marta Ochoa; former Estonian PM Taavi Rõivas and three European Young Leaders (EYL40) – BBVA Data & Analytics CEO Elena Alfaro MartínezBlaBlaCar founder Frédéric MazzellaMEP Eva Maydell, and EU Law Professor Alberto Alemanno.

The report also includes a foreword by European Commission Vice-President Andrus Ansip and an afterword by Belgian Deputy PM Alexander De Croo.

Each of the chapters captures in a concrete way the key challenges and recommendations related to one of the dimensions of the ecosystem. Drawing from national and EU-level dialogues on digital strategies, we highlight good practices to accelerate the benefits and manage the risks of the digital economy.

Some of the chapters include measures that effective countries and regions used to implement their agendas and discussion on the strategies, frameworks, stakeholders and resources needed to achieve the intended outcomes.

Others cover the expanding role of the private sector in developing national and regional digital strategies – including motivations, resources and operational parameters of the stakeholders.

The paper highlights some of the existing European initiatives at the nexus of innovation and technology governance, cooperation and civic engagement.

First lesson I missed the classes because my speciality (painting) demanded me to be outside from Estonia.

          Avocado seed and an apple are decaying   
Firs, I recognised an apple, but I didn't know what was the other object in front of the class. I wouldn't have known, that it was an avocado seed, if I wasn't told so. Apart from the exact names, what we have here are two fruits left to over-ripen and decay.
At the beginning, the teacher came into the class and put those objects on the front table. Then next time, the teacher would take them out of plastic bag and put them on the table. For next time, the plastic bag was removed only partly, because the "fruits" would have stained the table. At the very end, they weren't even taken out of the bag because of the smell.
When I was studyng in the Tartu Art College, fellow-students often left their cups somewhere for the weeks. Even if the mug was in their self, they wouldn't wasch it not too often. Mostly they said, that they do it because of the curiosity of what is going to happen to that cup-filling and how they would look like afterwards. Yes, they were colourful, abstract and interesting, but also repulsive. I guess it is somehow in the human's nature, to find something out about the death with their own eye. In Estonia, there's even a song about a man, who's bein hounted since he was kid. He was hounted about the idea, that how the dead body of a five-year-old squirrel would look like. The song is nice and calm, but the message is somehow intriguing.
Apart from the seeming topic change, the idea stays the same: these fruits represent a childish but also natural interest of the death. It depends of the character of a kid of course, but mostly a child who's thinking regularyly about the existence of life is quiet rare occasion. We, the students in that class room (the teacher included), seem to be like that small percentage of kids who feel interested about the life and death.
The decaying fruits give a good compost, which is not harmful in the wider perspective. The plastic bag, which was keeping the smell away from us, is much more harmful from the environmental perspective, than the rippen fruits. What it means is that we are thinking in much smaller time units than we think. We think that we are big philosophers, but we could not even see behind ourselves. We leave the classroom and we are even too lazy to shut the lights after us. In any other lesson we talk about the end of the world and make big eyes.
Apple is not just a fruit, it is also a seed. The rest of the apple 'mass' becomes compost for the seed in it. Apple has many seeds in it, but the avocado has only one big seed in it. I'm not sure of what the avocado seed consists of, but apple seeds have iodine inside of them. It is one very rare natural source of iodine for this latitude in nature. You could get sea kale, which has great amount of iodine on this latitude, but it grows in Ireland. So, in the case of appocalypse, you know where to get iodine - our immune system just would not work without iodine. Avocado rippens fast and it does not grow here, neither does it have iodine in it.
To make the short story even shorter, it is great to have good fantasy, but you need to have logic and order in your life to survive. We are childish and ignorant animals in the world of science. We like beautiful words, but do nothing with it. Always expecting others to react, we spread the important message in the internet and then put our heads back into the sand. We're like apple trees: just drop the fruits and then wait for humans to take care of us. On this latitude, even the wild appletrees are rare occasions and sooner or later they would die without human help. The downs would die without the people working and living in countryside.

Short and simply told, Estonia's path to independence from the USSR. Nicely illustrated and interesting to read! I don't know very much about either the Baltic states or the former USSR and I definitely learned a little here :)

          ¿Por qué Diosas?   
Salvo excepciones, las mujeres del este de Europa (generalmente de raza eslava, mezcla entre europeo y asiático) son bellísimas, altas, esbeltas, piernas de escándalo, excelentes amantes... perfectas para adorar.
Este blog irá dedicado a ellas, a las mejores mujeres del mundo, las del este de Europa
Son Diosas porque son mujeres muy femeninas y de una belleza extraordinaria además de cultas y grandes amantes, son mujeres dulces, comprometidas, luchadoras, amantes del teatro y la literatura... Hoy en día, tras la caída del regimen soviético, tenemos la suerte de verlas pasear por nuestras calles, tenemos la posibilidad de conocer a alguna y de que se convierta en nuestra esposa/compañera. Tratándola y mimándola como se merecen (están acostumbradas a la frialdad y rudeza del hombre eslavo) seremos los hombres más felices del mundo.
En este blog iré recogiendo las fotografias de las mujeres del este de Europa más famosas y bellas del panorama internacional.

          Carmen Kass   
Sus ojos azules rasgados, su pelo rubio, lacio y muy fino, y sus labios rectilíneos y delgados definen a una de las modelos que más triunfan en todo el mundo y que ha desfilado, gracias a sus 82-62-89 cm (pecho, cintura, cadera), para las grandes firmas de la moda como Dolce y Gabbana, Versace, Loewe o Valentino. Imagen del perfume J'adore de Christian Dior, entre sus campañas publicitarias destacan las que ha realizado para Calvin Klein, Chanel, Versace, Guy Laroche o Sephora, firma de cosméticos de la que se convirtió en embajadora. Igualmente, Carmen Kass ha sido portada de publicaciones tan importantes como Vogue y Madame Figaro, por citar tan sólo dos ejemplos. Women (Nueva York) y City (París) son las agencias que impulsan la carrera de esta modelo estonia.

Carmen Kass nació el 14 de septiembre de 1978 en Tallin (Estonia). A muy temprana edad, se fue a vivir con su madre al pueblo estonio de Paide. Allí, cuando contaba con tan sólo 14 años, fue coronada Miss Paide. Esto le permitió presentarse y ganar el concurso Miss Järvamaa, lo que suponía poder competir por el título de Miss Estonia.

Sin embargo, esta belleza rubia no llegaría a presentarse porque el azar hizo que su vida tomará un camino distinto. Un buen día, mientras compraba en un supermercado de Tallin, un cazatalentos italiano de modelos se acercó a ella y le preguntó si quería trabajar como modelo en Milán. Carmen aceptó, a pesar de que su madre no estaba de acuerdo, y dejó a un lado su participación en Miss Estonia para probar suerte como maniquí.

Tres meses en tierras italianas fueron suficientes para que los grandes de la moda se fijaran en esta chica de esbelta figura. En 1999, desfilaba para las firmas más importantes y era habitual ver su rostro en las mejores revistas de moda. Un año después, fue galardonada con el premio VH1/Vogue como ‘Mejor Modelo del Año 2000’.

          First Drop CD review – from Skempton to Reich via 12 immaculate voices   

Ars Nova Copenhagen/Hillier
(Cantaloupe)

Ars Nova Copenhagen is one of the world’s top chamber vocal ensembles. This programme of choral music by nine diverse contemporary composers, including Louis Andriessen, Steve Reich, Terry Riley and David Lang, is unified by one man: British conductor/director Paul Hillier. The opening work by Howard Skempton, Rise Up My Love, written for the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, springs as if from English Anglican soil until a low bass interpolation suggests different preoccupations, distant shores. Michael Gordon’s haunting He Saw a Skull sets a Talmudic text. Paul Hillier’s own, wordless arrangement of Reich’s Clapping Music is inspired. The 12 singers of Ars Nova are immaculate throughout.

What lay behind Russia’s interference in the 2016 election—and what lies ahead?

The D.N.C. hacks, many analysts believe, were just a skirmish in a larger war against Western institutions and alliances.ILLUSTRATION BY CHRISTOPH NIEMANN

1. SOFT TARGETS

On April 12, 1982, Yuri Andropov, the chairman of the K.G.B., ordered foreign-intelligence operatives to carry out “active measures”—aktivniye meropriyatiya—against the reëlection campaign of President Ronald Reagan. Unlike classic espionage, which involves the collection of foreign secrets, active measures aim at influencing events—at undermining a rival power with forgeries, front groups, and countless other techniques honed during the Cold War. The Soviet leadership considered Reagan an implacable militarist. According to extensive notes made by Vasili Mitrokhin, a high-ranking K.G.B. officer and archivist who later defected to Great Britain, Soviet intelligence tried to infiltrate the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National Committees, popularize the slogan “Reagan Means War!,” and discredit the President as a corrupt servant of the military-industrial complex. The effort had no evident effect. Reagan won forty-nine of fifty states.

Active measures were used by both sides throughout the Cold War. In the nineteen-sixties, Soviet intelligence officers spread a rumor that the U.S. government was involved in the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. In the eighties, they spread the rumor that American intelligence had “created” the aids virus, at Fort Detrick, Maryland. They regularly lent support to leftist parties and insurgencies. The C.I.A., for its part, worked to overthrow regimes in Iran, Cuba, Haiti, Brazil, Chile, and Panama. It used cash payments, propaganda, and sometimes violent measures to sway elections away from leftist parties in Italy, Guatemala, Indonesia, South Vietnam, and Nicaragua. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, in the early nineties, the C.I.A. asked Russia to abandon active measures to spread disinformation that could harm the U.S. Russia promised to do so. But when Sergey Tretyakov, the station chief for Russian intelligence in New York, defected, in 2000, he revealed that Moscow’s active measures had never subsided. “Nothing has changed,” he wrote, in 2008. “Russia is doing everything it can today to embarrass the U.S.”

Vladimir Putin, who is quick to accuse the West of hypocrisy, frequently points to this history. He sees a straight line from the West’s support of the anti-Moscow “color revolutions,” in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, and Ukraine, which deposed corrupt, Soviet-era leaders, to its endorsement of the uprisings of the Arab Spring. Five years ago, he blamed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the anti-Kremlin protests in Moscow’s Bolotnaya Square. “She set the tone for some of our actors in the country and gave the signal,” Putin said. “They heard this and, with the support of the U.S. State Department, began active work.” (No evidence was provided for the accusation.) He considers nongovernmental agencies and civil-society groups like the National Endowment for Democracy, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and the election-monitoring group Golos to be barely disguised instruments of regime change.

The U.S. officials who administer the system that Putin sees as such an existential danger to his own reject his rhetoric as “whataboutism,” a strategy of false moral equivalences. Benjamin Rhodes, a deputy national-security adviser under President Obama, is among those who reject Putin’s logic, but he said, “Putin is not entirely wrong,” adding that, in the past, “we engaged in regime change around the world. There is just enough rope for him to hang us.”*

The 2016 Presidential campaign in the United States was of keen interest to Putin. He loathed Obama, who had applied economic sanctions against Putin’s cronies after the annexation of Crimea and the invasion of eastern Ukraine. (Russian state television derided Obama as “weak,” “uncivilized,” and a “eunuch.”) Clinton, in Putin’s view, was worse—the embodiment of the liberal interventionist strain of U.S. foreign policy, more hawkish than Obama, and an obstacle to ending sanctions and reëstablishing Russian geopolitical influence. At the same time, Putin deftly flattered Trump, who was uncommonly positive in his statements about Putin’s strength and effectiveness as a leader. As early as 2007, Trump declared that Putin was “doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia period.” In 2013, before visiting Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant, Trump wondered, in a tweet, if he would meet Putin, and, “if so, will he become my new best friend?” During the Presidential campaign, Trump delighted in saying that Putin was a superior leader who had turned the Obama Administration into a “laughingstock.”

For those interested in active measures, the digital age presented opportunities far more alluring than anything available in the era of Andropov. The Democratic and Republican National Committees offered what cybersecurity experts call a large “attack surface.” Tied into politics at the highest level, they were nonetheless unprotected by the defenses afforded to sensitive government institutions. John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and a former chief of staff of Bill Clinton’s, had every reason to be aware of the fragile nature of modern communications. As a senior counsellor in the Obama White House, he was involved in digital policy. Yet even he had not bothered to use the most elementary sort of defense, two-step verification, for his e-mail account.

“The honest answer is that my team and I were over-reliant on the fact that we were pretty careful about what we click on,” Podesta said. In this instance, he received a phishing e-mail, ostensibly from “the Gmail team,” that urged him to “change your password immediately.” An I.T. person who was asked to verify it mistakenly replied that it was “a legitimate e-mail.”

The American political landscape also offered a particularly soft target for dezinformatsiya, false information intended to discredit the official version of events, or the very notion of reliable truth. Americans were more divided along ideological lines than at any point in two decades, according to the Pew Research Center. American trust in the mainstream media had fallen to a historic low. The fractured media environment seemed to spawn conspiracy theories about everything from Barack Obama’s place of birth (supposedly Kenya) to the origins of climate change (a Chinese hoax). Trump, in building his political identity, promoted such theories.

“Free societies are often split because people have their own views, and that’s what former Soviet and current Russian intelligence tries to take advantage of,” Oleg Kalugin, a former K.G.B. general, who has lived in the United States since 1995, said. “The goal is to deepen the splits.” Such a strategy is especially valuable when a country like Russia, which is considerably weaker than it was at the height of the Soviet era, is waging a geopolitical struggle with a stronger entity.
