El gran sueño africano   

Con la llegada del verano, volvemos a asistir a los repetidos y a veces trágicos asaltos contra las murallas alambradas de Melilla, llevados a cabo –con sofisticadas técnicas y artimañas de asedio medieval– por disciplinadas columnas de jóvenes subsaharianos. En otras zonas (Canarias, la isla italiana de Lampedusa, las costas de Sicilia, de Grecia, de Chipre, de Malta y la isla francesa de Mayotte, cerca de Madagascar), los “invasores” llegan casi siempre a las playas de noche –cuando no zozobran–,, en silenciosas embarcaciones...

          Eating the Globe: Syria   

I was in San Francisco for work and celebrated a productive morning with an out-of-the-way lunch. This is Palmyra.

I got the Kibbi platter, which consists of:
Four shells of mashed cracked wheat stuffed with ground beef, sauteed onions, and pine nuts served with a side of hummus, cucumber salad, pita, garlic sauce, and hot sauce.

The kibbi was/were delicious. Not greasy or heavy at all. My only complaint was that it only came with four pieces.

 Bon, du coup,
histoire d'épater les invités,
je me suis lancée dans un rougail saucisses.
Mais d'où vient le terme "rougail" ?
Du créole réunionnais "rougay" 
et par delà du tamoul ஊர்க்காய்ūrkkāy,
mot qui signifierait : fruit vert confit.

  1. (Réunion) (Maurice) (Madagascar) condiment très épicé, utilisé à la Réunion, à Maurice ou à Madagascar qui se compose généralement de tomates coupées en petits dés, de petits morceaux de mangue verte, de gingembre pilé, d'oignons émincés et de piments.

Temps de préparation : 20 minutes

- thym, laurier
- sel, poivre
- 1 c à café de massalé
- 1 piment oiseau (facultatif)

Au bout de 5 mn,
ajoutez les tomates coupées en petits morceaux
et les épices et aromates (le piment en morceaux). 
Mélangez le tout puis laisser mijoter sur feu doux

          51 nouveaux passionnés des études internationales cet automne aux HEI   
Ils et elles viennent du Québec, mais aussi de France, de Madagascar, d'Espagne, du Cameroun, de Tunisie, du Brésil et même des Comores ! Quarante-huit personnes se sont inscrites à la maîtrise en études internationales, les 3 autres, au doctorat.
          Un stage international riche en expériences à l'Assemblée parlementaire de la Francophonie   
Depuis janvier 2013, Dominique S. Montpetit effectue son stage de fin de maitrise en études internationales au sein de l’Assemblée parlementaire de la Francophonie (APF) à Paris. Dans ce cadre, elle a récemment été amenée à se rendre à Rabat, au Maroc, afin d’assister à la réunion de la Commission politique de l’APF.Cette réunion portait principalement sur la situation des pays membres de la Francophonie où se déroulent actuellement des conflits : la République centrafricaine, le Mali, Madagascar, la Guinée, et la République démocratique du Congo.Le rôle de Dominique consistait initialement à préparer les documents nécessaires aux discussions qui se sont tenues lors cette réunion, mais elle a aussi eu la chance d’y participer activement. Tout au long des débats, elle a ainsi siégé aux côtés de Denise Mekam’Ne, la rapporteure sur les situations politiques dans l’espace francophone. Avec l’appui et la supervision du Conseiller à la Commission politique, Dominique a guidé la rapporteure lors de son intervention et durant les débats sur les projets de déclaration.La participation de Dominique à cette réunion lui a permis d’assister aux discussions des parlementaires au sujet des documents qu’elle avait préparés au sein du Secrétariat général de l’APF et de voir ainsi son travail prendre forme sous ses yeux. Ceci représente pour elle la partie la plus enrichissante de l’expérience.Dominique tient d’ailleurs à remercier M. Maxime Carrier-Légaré et M. Jean-Luc Lala, ses deux superviseurs immédiats à l’APF, pour la confiance qu’ils ont démontré envers son travail ainsi que pour l’opportunité qu’ils lui ont offert de s’impliquer dans le déroulement de la réunion.

          BEAT THE HEAT! FRESH UP WITH 7-UP (Chocolate Cake!)   
Love this Beat the Heat! "fresh up" with Seven-Up! Ad from July 5, 1948! Family days at the Beach. Mom packs the picnic basket" Dad drives; and the kids fill the cooler with 7-Up. Seems like a lot of 7-Up from the photo. But they all look like they're having fun at the Beach--with 7-Up.

Another way of enjoying 7-Up, a very retro carbonated beverage, is to use it as a leavening agent in a chocolate bundt cake. I've posted 7-Up Chocolate Cake recipes for my Mad Men Marathon several years ago, but this is an easy 'from scratch" recipe. As I mentioned, the 7-Up is the leavening agent. Enjoy! Try to beat the heat this holiday weekend! This cake travels well!


7-Up Chocolate Cake

Ingredients
2 cups unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp Madagascar vanilla
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup DARK cocoa
1 cup 7-Up
1 cup dark chocolate chips  (or a cup of dark chocolate broken into chunks)
 
Directions
Cream butter.
Add sugar and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, beating well after each one.
Stir in salt, flour and cocoa. Blend thoroughly.
Add 7-UP.
Fold in chocolate chips or chunks.
Bake in greased and floured Bundt pan for 60 minutes (or until tester comes clean).
Cool on wire rack. 

Optional: Glaze when cooled with dark chocolate Dobash Frosting. 

Dobash Frosting
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup Ghirardelli cocoa
pinch of salt

Combine all in saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add 1/2 cup water to make a paste. Stir into cocoa mixture with whisk over heat until it thickens. Pour while hot over cake and spread.
          AAAAA Pink Tourmaline 7.5x5.8mm 1.30 Carats Oval 14K Rose gold Halo bridal set with .35cts of diamonds. 789 by mastergoldcraft   

1,725.00 USD

This listing is for the bridal set (two rings) shown in the images and can be purchased without the wedding band. This set shows off the center stone in an east to west orientation. If you like the center gemstone, but not the ring we can set this fine gemstone in any of out ring designs, or perhaps we can custom design a ring for you.

Gemstone: Pink Tourmaline
Treatments: None. No heat.
Color: As shown. A bubble gum pink.
Clarity: Almost loupe clean. When viewed with a 10x loupe you can easily observe the fine silk threads that run through the stone.
Measures: 7.4 x 5.8
Weight: 1.30 carats.
Cut: Step cut.
Origin: Madagascar

If you love the center gemstone, but would prefer it set in a different ring mounting please contact us for other available options. We would gladly set this stone in any of out listed rings, or perhaps we can custom design a ring for you. If you like the design of the wedding set but would like a different center stone, please let us know. We do stock just about every type of gemstone including all the colors available in Tourmaline and Sapphires.

Metal: 14K rose gold. (14K white and 14K yellow also available for no additional charge).
Also available in 18K gold, and platinum contact us for prices.

This Bridal wedding set, is set with one Natural Gemstone. Capturing the true color of any colored gemstone is extremely difficult and we try to do the best we can. What makes this even harder for you the consumer is the fact that all monitors are not equal and the way that each displays color is different so there will be a slight difference in the color tones. All the gemstones that I offer are well cut and ones that I would be proud to give to any family member. The stones are all beautiful and I can honestly say that none of my images compare to the actual beauty and brilliance of the gemstone when viewed up close and personal.

Please note that the center stone has not been fully set. This allows us to re-size, or perhaps recast the ring in a different color without risking damage to the stone. It will be fully set before being shipped. With one of a kind gemstones the one in the images will be the one you receive. All other gemstones will be identical to the images in color, cut, clarity and beauty. All carat weights are accurate.

The engagement ring can be purchased alone, and the wedding band purchased at a later date, or not at all.

This set is also available as a blank mounting. If there is a different gemstone that you would like see in this ring please contact me. I carry a huge stock of colored gemstones and more than likely I have it in stock. Please contact us for availability and prices.

Additionally this mounting is idea because down the road you can always substitute the center stone for diamond, or perhaps a different colored stone. The 8x6mm opening can take a 1.2 carat oval diamond.

Expedited shipping is also available for $21. Contact us if you need this service.

          Días de cine (II)   
Continuo, a buen ritmo, aligerando la estantería de películas por ver. A continuación las que han tocado este fin de semana:

007 Quantum of Solace
Ciertamente poco puedo decir de esta cinta. Las malas críticas recibidas me pusieron en sobre aviso sobre este nuevo Bond, lo cual no ayudó precisamente al disfrute. Como siempre, cuantas menos expectativas se tengan sobre algo, sean positivas o negativas, más limpia será nuestra mirada. Tras el más que digno e interesante debut de Daniel Craig en su anterior aventura, dirigida en esa ocasión por , esta continuación encargada a Marc Foster parece no llegar a la altura.
De Foster sin embargo si que recomiendo toda su filmografía anterior (a excepción de Tránsito que aún no he visto): Monster's ball, Descubriendo Nunca Jamás, Más extraño que la ficción y Cometas en el cielo
Más info: Filmaffinity


Madagascar 2
Salvando a mi adorado Wall-E, película que ha provocado tantas pasiones como indiferencia en el público, esta secuela de Madagascar es lo más divertido de la pasada temporada de animación USA. Los comentarios que recordaba (es lo que tiene ver cine en casa, que uno ya se ha olvidado de lo que se hablaba en su estreno) alababan la primera parte de la historia, mientras que acusaban al resto de falta de ritmo. Todo lo contrario: divertida de principio a fin, técnica y visualmente muy bien resuelta y con un guión que quizás de para una tercera película de la que apenas hay rumores.
Más info: Filmaffinity


Ghost Town (Me ha c
aído el muerto)
Aparte del curioso título español, que hace creer al espectador que se va a encontrar con una comedia, apenas hay una escena que remita a este género: la propia muerte del hombre que acudirá al protagonista de forma acorpórea. A partir de ahí nos encontramos con una sátira sobre el hombre moderno, los fantasmas, los asuntos pendientes, las relaciones sentimentales y los problemas de cuernos. Demasiados matices para una historia con aspecto romántico que fluye hacia los pantanosos terrenos de lo melancólico, la decepción y el agrio carácter de aquellas personas a las que en realidad les cuesta abrirse al mundo y se esconden tras un caparazón de antipatia.
Estamos pues ante un tipo de historia que resulta mucho más interesante como drama que como la comedia que nos han intentado vender. Los incondicionales de Ricky Gervais, provengan de The Office de Extras, disfrutarán nuevamente con un tipo de personaje al que ya nos tiene acostumbrado. Aquellos que busquen en "Me ha caído el muerto" la comedia que nos haga recordar las escenas de Whoopie Golberg en "Ghost" más vale que huyan hacia otra película.

Elizabeth, la edad de oro
Nada mejor para finalizar el fin de semana que una nueva dosis del más o menos reciente cine histórico. En este caso la segunda película sobre la reina Isabel I interpretada por Cate Blanchett. Los numerosos errores históricos que se le achacan, así como el desarrollo de personajes más imaginativos que reales, han lastrado las críticas recibidas por esta película. Sin embargo su impecable realización, decorados, música e interpretaciones hacen de ella un interesante retrato de la Inglaterra contra la que se enfrentó España a manos de Felipe II.

          Looking For A Cruise With A Difference?   
Cruise ship companies are continuing to add ships to their fleets and they are also becoming far more imaginative with the cruise itineraries that they are providing. The Caribbean and Mediterranean are still the most popular cruising destinations, but there is now a large range of exiting cruises that are available around the World.




This article attempts to give you some inspiration on where you should think about taking your next cruise holiday.




South America can offer a huge range of diverse cruises ranging from a trip up the Amazon to the throbbing cities of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires as well as offering natural wonders like the Galapagos Islands, Chilean Fjords and the Andes mountains.




Many of these cruises start from US ports and otherssail from the major South American cities. The majority of cruises to the Antarctica start from Ushuaia in southern Argentina. Several cruise companies including Voyages of Discovery and Hurtigruten offer expedition-style Antarctica cruises.




Dubai, as well as being a luxury holiday destination is starting to become an established cruise port. Costa Cruises is sailing seven cruise itineraries in 2009 calling at Abu Dhabi, Oman and Bahrain.




Dubai and other gulf ports often feature on world or repositioning cruises which means you can pick up a cruise bargain by choosing one of these cruises.




North Africa is well served by many cruise ships that also include the Mediterranean but what about the rest of Africa? Some world cruises sail down the west coast of Africa to Cape Town, as an alternative to cruising through the Suez Canal in Egypt.




Cruising the west coast means that you can visit countries such as Senegal, Gambia and Namibia as well as the Cape Verde Islands and St Helena. In southern and eastern Africa some cruise lines offer departures from Cape Town and also the Kenyan holiday resort of Mombasa.




Silversea Cruises offers several trips from these ports which call at destinations such as Zanzibar, Madagascar and Assumption Island. Hebridean International Cruises and Voyages of Discovery are also featuring cruises around this region.




Cruises to Alaska are still as popular as ever. These cruisese start from Seattle or Vancouver and make their way up the Inside Passage taking in some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. NCL, Princess and Royal Caribbean are just some of the cruise lines offering Alaskan cruises, which can also be combined with a land tour.




The Baltic is the second most popular cruise region in the European summer season. A Baltic cruise would visit the stunning cities of St Peterburg, Stockholm and Tallinn, whilst of course Norway offers the incredible Fjords, the midnight sun and The Northern Lights. Hurtigruten is famed for its coastal voyages around Norway.




The Far East and in particular China has seen a big growth in cruise customers. Many cruises start from Hong Kong and cruise north to China and Japan. Other cruises head south where you will cruise to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.




Australia and New Zealand feature on most world cruises by cruise companies such as P&O, Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean.




So, what are you waiting for? Cruising has never been more popular and with the ever increasing choice of both exotic and exploration cruises available there has never been a better time to book a cruise.

          Never fly Philippine Airlines   
It took some doing, but Philippine Airlines have supplanted United in the "I will never fly them again unless there is no other choice" stakes.

On our most recent trip, three out of four legs of the journey were just too unpleasant, and while the last helped to smooth over the annoyance, the sum total was best summed up by Catriona who said "Dad, next time we fly, can we *not* go with the cheap airline?"

Picture this: You get onto a plane, about to take a 10 hour flight, expecting to see those in-seat monitors.  What you get is a poorly focussed overhead screen.  And a bunch of children looking really disappointed already.

The announcement comes over to "please close your windows - if you want to read, turn on your overhead lights".  You push the button.  Nothing happens.  You sit in the dark with your Kindle wondering how you're going to kill the next 10 hours.

You open the window and let the light in. A flight attendant comes and asks you to close it.  You explain that the light doesn't work.  She goes away.

The purser comes and asks you to close it.  You explain that the light doesn't work.  He shrugs.  You show him that in fact the light control actually comes out of the seat showing exposed wiring.  He laughs and goes away.  You hope that the wiring in the cockpit is in better condition.

Repeat for two more flight attendants.

For an hour you try to watch the blotchy screen showing some movie.  The movie stops.  And restarts from the beginning.  This happens several times during the flight.  They do show snippets of an insane American game show where people get hurt trying to climb over/under/through a watery obstacle course.

After 10 hours, you get off in Manila.  You are escorted up to the departures lounge, and go through security having your bags and shoes X-rayed, and being patted down.  Loo break, have a tiny ice-cream, then go to the gate (approximately 20m away from where you were last scanned) where you have to go through security again, having your bags X-rayed and being patted down.  Presumably this is because you might have visited the gun dealer in the departure lounge.  At least, you can keep your shoes on this time.

So, now you are in the "secure area" - that is, a part of the same floor that's cordoned off with those ribbons you see in bank queues. Once inside the "secure area", you realise that there are no seats left so you sit on the marble floor, only to realise that the airport roof is leaking and the floor is wet.  But it's ok, that's to make sure you don't dehydrate -- it must be, after all, it's the only source of water you have access to until your flight.  Unless you want to go through security again.  Remember, you can't bring more than 100ml into the "secure area" so don't think about going out and buying drinks for the kids.

Still, at least this next Manila to Los Angeles flight will have personal screens, won't it?  No, you probably only wanted to just sleep anyway.  This time we're split across three rows, with me behind the three kids and Pauline somewhere up frontish.  I get to share the row with a couple who were, well, large.  For the entire trip, the voice in my head was that of the male hippo in Madagascar 2 saying "Girl, you're large. You're chunky!"

(realise that I've been switching from second person to first person - give up dreams of being a novelist)

But you're in LA now - have a holiday, and try not to think about the flight home.  If you have to think about Manila, think about how cheap the ice-creams were.

Legoland.
Disneyland.
Fireworks in a carpark on July 4th.
Universal Studios.
Legoland again.
Fly to Washington.

Too many burgers, too many cokes, this is holiday living.
Drive to Pennsylvania
Climbed on by niece and nephew

Too soon it's over and you are winging back from Washington to LAX arriving at about 2:30pm and having to wait till 10:30pm, thinking "I'll check the suitcases and then grab a bus somewhere outside the airport".  Bzzzt, sorry, Philippine Airlines don't begin checking in until 6:45pm.  Ok, this one isn't completely their fault but if the whole trip had been with them, I'd have been able to check the bags in in Washington.

Ok, we're back - side trip was acceptable though it was a little tricky dragging 3 suitcases and 5 people each with backpacks onto a peak-hour city bus.  Again, can't blame the airline for that.

At about 10:45, learn that "because the plane is lighter than we thought, we don't want to stop in Guam to refuel".  "Hooray" shouts the crowd.  "... so, we'll be delaying the flight until 1:30am so that when we get to Manila Airport it will actually be open."   "Boo!" shouts the crowd.  "... so, here is a $12 voucher that you can use at any of two eateries here in no-mans-land behind security -- no, they won't work anywhere else".

(Hmmm, and yet the airports Facebook page says "always open" - sigh)

Get on the plane and discover that the little man at checkin who told us that the last side-row of seats reclines, was lying.  They don't.  They would block the exit door. He had deliberately moved us there to keep us altogether and we explicitly said that we would only go there if they reclined.  So he said "sure they do".  First rule of airlines - get the passenger to be someone else's problem, preferably at another airport.

We complain to the purser and get the girls moved forward about 40 rows, leaving us boys at the back.  Next to a walrus.  I don't know what else to say, just try to imagine someone who can snore loud enough to be heard over an airplane engine.  Thomas can't take it and moves forward with the girls, leaving Jonathan and I with more room.  And a noisy walrus who, to be fair, eventually shut the hell up.  But that just made it easier to hear the scary rattling noises from above.

Try to lift the arm rest to use that extra space?  Aha, no, they have that covered too, they only raise about 2/3 of the way making it impossible to spread out.

Well, at least this time the plane has those little screens.  Look, Movies and TV. Hmmm, movies aren't anything special, what do they have on the TV - *one* program.  One! And for irony, it's "a documentary on aviation technology".  After the flight, you learn that in fact the people over on the right hand side of the plane had dozens of TV shows to watch.  Or perhaps it was "front" vs "back".

Watch a couple of movies. This part was ok.  But it's what we were expecting on every leg.

When the flight is just about over, we discover that in fact when they moved the girls, there were three empty seats behind them - they could have moved us all, they just didn't think we'd want to.

Back at Manila.  Back to double-goes on the security ride.  At least, this time it wasn't raining.

Notice that the security area has been set up so that the guy looking at the X-ray screen has to shade it with his hand the entire day, because they placed the screen such that the sun shines directly on it through wall-to-ceiling windows - what a shame they couldn't have anticipated, while designing the airport, that the sun actually shines.  This just reinforces the notion that all of this security crap is based on the notion that the guy before you was incompetent.  Not to mention the tautological sign that justifies it by saying "Philippine law requires that all bags be inspected when passing through inspection points".  So, if they hadn't put an inspection point in, there would have been no need for an inspection point. "It's a bypass, ya gotta build bypasses".

One last plane.  One last chance for reasonable entertainment.  Why does the screen say TV but doesn't mention Movies?  And why is there so much "Glee" in the TV section?  After four reboots (did you know those things run Linux? We do now), the Movies actually show up.  So, the final leg of the trip is tolerable.  Not surprisingly, it was the shortest of the bunch at less than eight hours (Manila to Sydney is faster because it's downhill all the way).

Oh, by the way, you know how nice a warm pork bun can be?  Not surprisingly, the "warm" isn't optional - a cold pork bun snack really doesn't do anything for me, but they served it anyway.

All told, there weren't any catastrophes, no lost bags, no falling out of the sky. Just a series of unpleasant experiences which left you with the feeling that "this is an airline that is just a bit manky".

Your mileage may vary.  But I've flown Singapore Airlines, I've flown Air New Zealand, I know it can be done a lot better than Philippine Airlines did on four flights out of four.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

carnelian is an a-grade agate. what a lot of people call “true-carnelian” is the fiery red/orange color, and in theory, carnelian is naturally that color. however, most of that “true” carnelian is heat-treated in secret, well before it reaches the gemstone-cutting factory. this apparently has been a secret for thousands of years; each part of the world thought everyone else’s carnelian was naturally red, but they were heating theirs, too. when held against the light, the color-treated carnelian shows its color in stripes, while natural carnelian shows a cloudy distribution of color. ancient Egyptian tombs are full of carnelian jewelry, as they believed the gemstone had great power in the afterlife. ancient Greeks and Romans called it sardius and used it for signet rings, cameos and intaglios. Hindu astrology names carnelian as the secondary stone of Scorpios. carnelian is found in Brazil, India, Australia, Russia, Madagascar, South Africa, Uruguay and USA.

the Greek origin of the word jasper, iapis, means “spotted stone.” this form of semi-precious chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz, has colors of dark red, orange, pink, rust, yellow, tan, brown, green, gray, blue and black. its patterns are much less regular and defined than those of the other chalcedony variety, agate. another difference between the two is that jaspers are generally opaque, while agates tend to be translucent (or at least contain translucent bands). jasper gets its colorful patterns from other minerals present. this gemstone is often named according to its pattern; landscape jaspers are the most popular. jasper was a favorite in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. people of the fourth century called it the great “rain-bringer”. jasper is also known as the “supreme nurturer”. jasper is mined in North Africa, Sicily, France, India, Venezuela, Germany, the USA and many more countries.

the role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. silver jewelry has been found as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was the main supplier of silver for a long time and as a result, became very rich. the discovery of the America's and subsequent silver mining in the United State and Mexico were responsible for the drop in value. silver is a precious metal, not a mineral. today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and Russia.

->->-> for those who believe ;)

-- carnelian --
carnelian is believed to remind us to be “in the moment”. it is said to be a stone of protection, particularly from anger, jealousy and fear. it is also thought to bring passion to the wearer. carnelian promotes idealism and the awareness of social issues. red carnelian symbolizes activity and promotes energy.

Pisces ~ carnelian helps Pisces put the past behind her and reconcile herself to life.

Gemini ~ this is a particularly potent gemstone for Gemini. it supports spiritual vitality. through its connection with the earth, it helps keep Gemini on course.
Cancer ~ carnelian can help Cancer who feels abandonment and loss particularly keenly. it teaches her that nature is constantly changing and that nothing in the universe can stand still.

-- silver --
some believe that silver transmits and intensifies the power of healing stones, so that when they are set in silver they become even more powerful. turquoise and coral are examples. like gold, silver symbolizes wealth and prosperity. those prone to outbursts of anger and rudeness can be pacified by silver.

          Roundtrip flights to exotic Madagascar from UK from £494/€562!   

Tweet Madagascar is indeed one of the dream destinations of many travellers. Unfortunately also due to low competition the price of a ticket to Antananarivo is very high from most of the European cities. Therefore any offer for reasonable price is always welcomed. This time based on Air France promotion we are allowed to book cheap …

          Kasbah Telouet in Telouet, Morocco   

Kasbah as can be seen from afar

Although most visitors to the Moroccan Sahara visit the World Heritage Site of Aїt Benhaddou, those looking for a kasbah that’s secluded, off the beaten path, and filled with fascinating history should look no further than Kasbah Telouet, a crumbling yet beautiful village steeped in lavishness, traitorship, and the struggle for Moroccan independence.

In the makhzen, the pre-1957 feudal system of Morocco, a Sultan ruled the country, while a group of Pashas, the equivalent of dukes, instated local control by imposing taxes and keeping order. One of the most powerful Pashas of 20th Century Morocco was Thami El Glaoui, the "Lord of the Atlas." The El Glaoui family had close ties to the Sultan and had presided over Kasbah Telouet since its construction 1860, and from 1912 to 1956, Thami ruled as the Pasha of Marrakech.

Thami El Glaoui can be easily referred to as the Great Gatsby of Morocco. The El Glaoui family dominated the olive, saffron, and salt trades due to Kasbah Telouet’s optimal placement on the caravan trails, making Thami one of Morocco's richest men. El Glaoui wielded immense political, cultural, and economic clout and was known for throwing ostentatious parties at the kasbah.

But by the mid-20th century, El Glaoui took his political influence one step too far. As the Moroccan independence movement was gaining popularity, El Glaoui teamed up with the French colonialists to oust the current Sultan, Mohammed V, and place Ben Arafa, a Moroccan sympathetic to the French, in power. This served El Glaoui well until 1955, when Mohammed V returned from exile in Madagascar and declared independence for Morocco.

With Mohammed V in charge once again, El Glaoui was declared a traitor and lost all of his political leverage, and Kasbah Telouet has been left to crumble ever since. The El Glaoui family charges an entry fee of 10 Dinah ($1) to the rare visitor in order to preserve the Moorish architecture, ornate windows, painted ceilings, and narrow corridors of the kasbah from decay. Although much of its original beauty is destroyed, the kasbah’s decrepit state has made it the perfect hidden gem for the few the venture out to experience it.


           Le ministère des Finances brandit des réquisitions   

La grève au niveau de la Douane se poursuit. La rencontre mardi 27 juin à Toamasina entre la Direction générale des douanes et le syndicat des agents des douanes (SEMPIDOU) a été infructueuse. Si le ministre des Finances et du Budget se déclare ouvert au dialogue, le SEMPIDOU estime que l'Etat n'est pas franc et fait la sourde oreille. Le SEMPIDOU déplore une attitude menaçante de la part de la Direction générale de la Douane qui envisage le recours à la manière forte. Il a été évoqué du moins insinué (...)

           La Banque mondiale et le Fonds monétaire re-ouvrent le robinet   

Après des mois et des années de tergiversations, la Banque mondiale et le Fonds monétaire internationale (FMI) ont enfin décidé de re-ouvrir le robinet en faveur de Madagascar. Décision qui coïncide avec la démarche du régime en faveur de la Chine faute de soutien palpable des bailleurs de fonds traditionnels et des partenaires occidentaux. Mais ce n'est peut-être qu'un simple hasard du calendrier. Tour à tour, la Banque mondiale et le FMI annoncent le déblocage de fonds en faveur de la Grande Ile. Le (...)

          CoasterRadio.com #603 - Halloween is Almost Here!   

We're just a few days away from one of our favorite holidays here at Coaster Radio... Halloween!

This week, we're going to celebrate early by talking with the owner of the World's Longest Indoor Haunted Attraction... The Factory of Terror in Canton, Ohio.

The Guinness Book of World Records recently certified that this amazing haunt has once again claimed this impressive world record.

We'll find out what it takes to to put on a world-class haunt and what terrifying experiences visitors might encounter when they visit.

We'll also discuss the most recent promotion at Six Flags Over Georgia.  As part of their celebration of Fright Fest, visitors were invited to eat a live Madagascar Hissing Cockroach.  If they succesfully ate the bug, they won a Season Pass.

EB and Mike talk about what it would take to get them to eat a roach and then get to the bottom of finding out who came up with this unique idea.

Plus, we have a Live Trip Report from a popular California Haunted Attraction and we find out how we're doing in the voting for the 2011 Podcast Awards!


          CoasterRadio.com #224 - Real Ghosts at the Park?   
If you're a fan of theme parks, October is one of the best times of year.

Halloween is right around the corner, and most parks are open for special "scare-fests" where you can ride all day and scream all night.

Most parks have to create artificial ghosts, but it turns out one park doesn't have to. Six Flags Over Georgia recently played host to the Atlanta-based Ghost Hounds, who spent several hours after the park closed searching for signs from the beyond.

Guess what... they found something.

This week, Christy Poore from Six Flags Over Georgia joins us to talk about what they found. She'll also tell us about last week's "Ticket to Terror" promotion where 28 lucky guests volunteered to eat a live Hissing Madagascar Cockroach in order to skip to the front of the line of their new roller coaster, Goliath.

We'll also have a series of reports from EB, who spent the weekend at Knoebels Phoenix Phall Phunfest. It's one of the most anticipated coaster enthusiasts of the year and EB was there! He'll give us his unqiue spin on what he saw.

Plus, we'll tell you about our upcoming shows, all leading up the the big series finale on October 30th.

After the show, join us in our forums to talk about your opinions.

          Re: MADAGASCAR   
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

2015 Instagram Best Nine Photos

There's an end-of-the-year meme going around that generates your nine most popular photos posted to instagram. These aren't my nine most popular - but they are my nine most favorite. They represent an otherworldly, incredible travel year to more than 26 countries - 10 which were lifers!

The photos, from left to right represent: Amman, Jordan; Quartz Mountain, Oklahoma; Kandalama, Sri Lanka, St. Petersburg, Russia; Toronto, Canada (Pan Am Games Opening Ceremony); Kona, Hawaii, Cape May, New Jersey; and Pico Bonito, Honduras. Although Australia was the last country I traveled to in 2015 (still here as I write) - travels to Honduras in early December brought me to my 120th country (not that I am a lister!). 

And since I am fairly certain no one reads my blog anymore - I might as well go ahead and post my travels from 2015 - because they were pretty mind-blowing:

          Stop Cuts to International Conservation   
Almost all of the world's lemur species are threatened with extinction thanks to the pressures of rampant deforestation and a warming climate. The lemurs of Madagascar may be the most endangered mammal group on Earth.

The Nature Conservancy and our partners are working hard to ensure that species like the endangered giant bamboo lemur have a fighting chance by slowing the onslaught of deforestation. But the recently proposed federal budget could make saving this species much harder, by drastically cutting funding for programs that protect forests from deforestation.

In fact, funding to help other nations conserve their natural resources and protect their imperiled wildlife would be dramatically cut by more than 81%.

If enacted, the President's budget will devastate strong conservation progress around the world and threaten animals like lemurs with extinction. And if we cut funding to protect forests worldwide, we'll lose another tool to curb greenhouse gas emissions, increasing the threat of climate change.

We need Congress to fully fund international conservation programs right now. Call on Congress today to protect funding for international conservation that the lemur and other wildlife depends on.

          Growing Trees and Growing Profit: Is Your Business a “Restoration Enterprise?”   

Growing Trees and Growing Profit: Is Your Business a “Restoration Enterprise?”

This piece is co-written by Eriks Brolis, the conservation business lead on The Nature Conservancy’s Global Lands Team.

As one of our most powerful natural climate solutions, forest and landscape restoration is among the cheapest and most effective ways to store carbon and curb climate change. What’s more, expanding restoration can create enticing investment opportunities in a “restoration economy.”

One hundred and fourteen governments have made commitments to restoration as part of their overall plans to tackle a changing climate, pledging to restore 162 million hectares (400 million acres), an area six times the size of the United Kingdom. But transforming land use at a large scale means that we cannot rely on public or philanthropic resources alone. To reach the $26 billion needed each year to meet countries’ pledges under the Paris Agreement, the private and commercial sectors need to be involved.

One barrier to attracting the needed funds has been lack of awareness of the investment opportunities. Investors ask, what are the business models? How can restoration generate a return on investment? What is the growth potential?

As we noted in a previous blog post, restoration can generate both income and capital gains. More and more enterprises are seeing the commercial potential in restoration-related sectors, including those whose main value proposition is linked to forest and landscape restoration. This may be a direct link—enterprises that plant trees, for example—or an indirect one, such as companies that offer technology or consulting services for restoration. A restoration enterprise can also include companies whose revenues are not directly linked to restoration, but whose customers are drawn to them because they channel their profits toward restoration.

What Does a Restoration Enterprise Look Like?

When envisioning a restoration enterprise, sustainable forestry companies, such as Better Globe Forestry, are typically the first that come to mind. The Kenyan company works with smallholder farmers to plant Melia volkensii trees, a native species known for its resilience to drought. Providing farmers with a range of resources to plant the trees on their lands—from seedlings and water supplies to training and microfinance—Better Globe intends to purchase the trees from farmers once they are mature, harvesting them and exporting them as high-quality timber. By establishing the trees on semi-arid lands – with more than a million planted to date – the company helps retain water and improve soil quality, transforming dusty farmlands into oases of grass and vegetation.

Restoration enterprises, however, come in many shapes and forms. Another example is Fresh Coast Capital, which exemplifies the potential of restoration companies to deliver financial, environmental and social returns. As a project developer, Fresh Coast partners with cities throughout the U.S. Midwest to restore and revitalize underserved urban communities through the transformative power of nature. By paying Fresh Coast to install large-scale green infrastructure such as native plants and trees, cities can naturally manage stormwater runoff while improving soil and air quality. These projects can save cities millions in built infrastructure costs while creating restoration jobs and improving property values, delivering triple-win scenarios for the company, the city and the environment.

Ecosia takes a more indirect approach to restoration. An online search engine that displays ads next to its search results, Ecosia earns revenue every time a user clicks on one of the ads. At least 80 percent of its profits are invested into tree-planting programs in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Peru, Indonesia and Tanzania. While Ecosia’s business model does not directly benefit from trees, its customer value proposition is intimately linked to restoring degraded land. Its platform enables users to see how many trees have been planted based on individual online activity. With 9 million trees planted to date, Ecosia proves that business models that indirectly promote restoration can be effective at creating large-scale impact.

To document and support the growing restoration economy, WRI and The Nature Conservancy aim to showcase promising business models. We’re looking for examples of effective restoration enterprises, which we’ll share in a forthcoming report geared toward investors, businesses, civil society and governments.

          Commercio illegale di testuggini: una denuncia a Galliate    

GALLIATE, Nella giornata di giovedì 22 giugno personale del Gruppo Carabinieri Forestale di Novara, coadiuvato da unità del Servizio Cites e del Nucleo Operativo Cites di Torino, hanno proceduto a effettuare un’attività di controllo presso un’azienda di Galliate, specializzata nel commercio di testuggini di terra.Il controllo ha portato a individuare nove esemplari di testuggine, detenuti a scopo commerciale, per i quali è stata contestata la detenzione illegale. Tutti i nove esemplari sono stati sottoposti a sequestro d’iniziativa ed il titolare della ditta, un cittadino italiano residente in provincia di Milano, denunciato all’A.G. per detenzione ai fini del commercio di specie tutelate dalla Convenzione di Washington (C.I.T.E.S.). Il sequestro è stato convalidato. Gli esemplari sottoposti a sequestro sono 3 Testudo marginata (in Italia, diffusa esclusivamente in Sardegna), 5 Testudo hermanni (diffusa in tutto il bacino del mediterraneo e in gran parte del territorio nazionale) ed una Geochelone radiata (specie diffusa in Madagascar). Gli esemplari sequestrati sono stati trasferiti presso il Reparto Carabinieri della Biodiversità con sede a Punta Marina (Ravenna), presso un’area attrezzata per il mantenimento delle testuggini. Tutte le specie di testuggine sono protette dalla Convenzione di Washington e sottoposte misure di tutela particolarmente rigide. La Convenzione di Washington (C.I.T.E.S.), stipulata  nel 1973 ed esecutiva in Italia sin dal 1980, tutela più di 36.000 specie, tra animali e piante. Ad oggi, vi hanno aderito 183 paesi nel mondo. La normativa nazionale, in caso di condanna, prevede la pena dell’arresto da sei mesi a due anni ed il pagamento di un’ammenda da € 15.000 ad € 150.000. Gli animali, nel caso ne sia provata l’illecita detenzione, sono destinati alla confisca. Sul mercato, una testuggine adulta di Testudo marginata può arrivare a valere anche 1.500 euro. I carabinieri forestali ricordano “l’attenzione sull’importanza di attenersi scrupolosamente al rispetto delle normative vigenti. Le testuggini sono animali ad alto livello di protezione la cui commercializzazione e detenzione privata non è libera. Pertanto si raccomanda, prima di acquistare tali animali e, più in generale specie selvatiche, di informarsi preventivamente per accertare se siano, ed a quali condizioni di legge, commercializzabili e detenibili”. I Carabinieri Forestali assicurano il controllo e la vigilanza sul territorio nazionale. “Il traffico di animali e piante in via di estinzione ha, ormai, raggiunto livelli allarmanti. La soglia di attenzione rimane molto elevata allo scopo di garantire, non solo il rispetto della legge, ma anche l’integrità delle popolazioni di animali selvatici, come le testuggini, la cui presenza in natura è gravemente minacciata dal prelievo e dal commercio illegale”.Mo.c.

          Extrait / La députée française Eva Joly s’indigne: Comment la France pille le Cameroun et l`Afrique.   
Extrait / La députée française Eva Joly s’indigne: Comment la France pille le Cameroun et l`Afrique.

Nous ne résistons pas à l'envie de publier pour nos lecteurs ces extraits du dernier livre de la députée française Eva Joly, détaillant les «crimes» de la France en Afrique en général et au Cameroun en particulier; elle parle notamment du massacre des Bamilékés par son pays.

Je n`avais rien compris à ce que l'écrivain Slimane Zeghidour appelle «le secret de famille de la République».

Lorsque j'ai pris en charge l'instruction de l'affaire Elf, j'avais en face de moi les puissants du pétrole français, je n'aimais pas leur arrogance, la façon qu'ils avaient de se servir dans les caisses, mais lorsqu'ils invoquaient les intérêts supérieurs du pays, j'étais prête à les croire.

Je sortais de plusieurs années en détachement au Ministère des Finances, entourée de hauts fonctionnaires intègres, d’une compétence absolue.

J`avais confiance dans les institutions de mon pays d`adoption. Je n`imaginais pas que la finalité des dirigeants des sociétés nationales du pétrole fut autre chose que le bien commun. Je traquais les dérives et non le système lui-même.

Pourtant au fil de mon enquête, j`ai découvert un monde souterrain. Magistrate, limitée par le cadre de ma saisine et des compétences nationales, je devais m`arrêter sur le seuil de certaines portes, qui menaient vers l`étranger.

 

Je découvrais des chemins qu`il aurait été passionnant de remonter, des connexions qui m`ahurissant. Avec des chiffres, des comptes, nous avions sous nos yeux le déchiffrage d`un vaste réseau de corruption institutionnalisé, dont les fils étaient reliés en direct à l'Elysée.

Ce n'était pas mon rôle d`en tirer les conclusions politiques, mais j`en ai gardé l'empreinte. Nous avions dessiné alors un vaste schéma, que j`ai toujours avec moi. Il fait huit mètres une fois déplié.

Il serpente depuis le bureau d`un directeur des hydrocarbures d`Elf, jusqu`à des comptes obscurs alimentés par le Gabon, aux mains d`Omar Bongo: quarante ans de pouvoir et une difficulté récurrente à distinguer sa tirelire et sa famille d`une part, le budget de l`Etat et le Gouvernement d`autre part.

J`emporte souvent ce schéma avec moi, au fil des rendez-vous. Je l`étale sur les tables, un peu comme un capitaine au combat sort ses vieilles cartes.

Les positions ont sans doute varié, les techniques de camouflage se sont sophistiquées, mais le système est là: les tyrans sont des amis que la France a placés au pouvoir et dont elle protège la fortune et l'influence par de vastes réseaux de corruption; en échange ils veillent sur les intérêts et les ressources des entreprises françaises venues creuser le sol. Tout ce beau monde a intérêt à ce que rien, jamais, ne stimule ni les institutions ni l'économie des pays.

La France aide à appauvrir le Gabon.

 

Et si je m'arrête un instant au Gabon, qu'est-ce que j`y vois? Un pays riche qui exporte plus de treize milliards de dollars de pétrole brut par an et affiche un PIB par habitant largement au-dessus de la moyenne africaine (6 397 $)? Ou un pays pauvre où l`espérance de vie est estimée à 55 ans pour les femmes et 53 pour les hommes, ce qui leur laisse un an de moins que les Malgaches nés sur un sol sans pétrole? Le taux de mortalité infantile est au Gabon particulièrement élevé, le taux de vaccination contre la rougeole est de 40% contre une moyenne de 79% dans les pays en développement.

Voilà où en est le Gabon, chasse gardée de la France, fournisseur des trésors du pétrole et de l`uranium, fief de Total-Elf, la première capitalisation boursière française.

Si les habitants de Libreville n`ont pas bénéficié de la richesse de leur pays, c`est parce que la France s`est accaparée ses ressources minières, avec la complicité d`unu Président, enrôlé dès son servicemilitaire par l`armée française et ses services secrets, placé à la tête du pays à 32 ans par Paris, il était alors le plus jeune Chef d`Etat du monde. La France contrôle son armée, ses élections et protège sa fortune.

 

En retour, Omar Bongo fait table ouverte plusieurs fois par an, Avenue Foch ou l`Hôtel Crillon, où il reçoit les hommes politiques, des publicitaires et les journalistes français qui comptent. Chacun se presse à ces audiences.

 

Dans les années 1990, un homme politique français de premier plan, alors en fonction, bénéficiait en parallèle d`un contrat de «consultant» signé par Omar Bongo et largement rémunéré. De Roland Dumas, le Président gabonais dit qu`il est un «ami intime». Prévoyant, il apprécie aussi NicolasSarkozy, venu «prendre conseil» en tant que candidat à l`élection présidentielle.

 

Lorsqu’au cours de l`instruction, nous avons perquisitionné au siège de la FIBA, la banque franco-gabonaise, nous avons consulté lelisting des clients qui paraissait tenu à la plume sergent-major. C`était une sorte de Who`s Who de la France en Afrique, qui en disait long sur l`envers de la République et des médias.

 

La France fait semblant d`aider des pays qui sont riches en matières premières.

 

A ceux qui croient encore à l`aide désintéressée de la France en Afrique, il suffit de consulter les chiffres du PNUD (Programme des Nations Unies pour le Développement). La corrélation est régulière entre le montant de l`aide française et la richesse en matières premières.

 

En clair, celui qui n`a rien dans son sous-sol ne doit pas attendre grand-chose de Paris. Il n`est pas étonnant de retrouver le Gabon comme l`un des premiers bénéficiaires de l`aide publique française au développement. Le résultat est affligeant en termes de système de santé et d`éducation. L`argent s`est perdu en route. Il est justement fait pour cela.

 

Il ne s`agit pas d`une dérive mais d`une organisation cohérente et raisonnée. Dans chaque audition durant notre instruction, nous entendions parler de pressions physiques, d`espionnage permanent et de barbouzes.

 

Les perquisitions dans la tour Elf à la Défense livraient une moisson de documents révélant la confusion des genres, nous les transmettions au Parquet de Nanterre, qui se gardait bien d`ouvrir des enquêtes. Car Elf hier, Total aujourd’hui, est un Etat dans l`Etat, conçu par Pierre Guillaumat, un ancien Ministre de la Défense, patron des services secrets et responsable du programme nucléaire français afin de servir les intérêts géopolitiques de Paris.

 

La Norvège a utilisé son pétrole pour construire et assurer le paiement des retraites futures. La France se sert d`Elf Total pour affirmer sa puissance.

 

La compagnie intervient dans le Golfe de Guinée, au Nigeria, au Congo-Brazzaville, en Angola… Tous ces pays ont connu la guerre civile et la dictature, derrière laquelle la main française s`est fait sentir. Le chaos, lorsqu`il se produit, ne trouble pas le système. Il n`est qu’à voir l`Angola en guerre pendant des dizaines d`années, mais dont aucune goutte de pétrole, jamais, n`a raté sa destination.

 

Pendant la guerre, les affaires continuaient…les banques françaises, Bnp-Paribas en tête, ont même profité de l`occasion pour élaborer des montages financiers destinés aux pays en guerre, à des taux affolants, tout en sachant qu`elles ne prenaient pas le moindre risque. L`argent, là aussi, n`a pas été perdu pour tout le monde. C`est un miroir dans lequel il ne faut pas trop souvent regarder les élites françaises.

 

Depuis que j`ai ouvert le dossier Elf dans mon bureau de la galerie financière, j`ai voyagé physiquement et intellectuellement bien loin de la Seine et de ses quais gris et bleus…j`ai appris en marchant. A l`arrivée, le tableau est effrayant.

 

L`Afrique a refait de moi une Norvégienne, fière de l`être. Mon pays est riche, mais, il se souvient avoir été pauvre, un peuple d`émigrants regardant vers le nouveau monde américain.

 

Son esprit de conquête, ses allures vikings sont des traces d`un passé très lointain, vinrent ensuite les tutelles danoise puis suédoise, dont il fallut se libérer, Il envoya vers l`Afrique des missionnaires protestants, personnages austères au visage buriné, taillé par la parole chrétienne et l’œuvre humanitaire, plutôt que des nouveaux colons, comme on les croise encore dans les quartiers d`expatriés blancs.

 

Pendant que la France fondait Elf, la Norvège mettait en place l`exploitation des ressources de la mer du Nord, accumulant un fonds de réserve, aussitôt placé pour les générations futures et soigneusement contrôlé. Ce petit pays des terres gelées est devenu la première nation donatrice en dollars par habitant.

 

Bien sûr, les pétroliers norvégiens ne sont pas des enfants de chœur. De récentes enquêtes ont montré que certains d`entre eux ont versé des commissions et que la tentation d`abuser de leur pouvoir est permanente. Mais la Norvège n`a pas à rougir de ce qu`elle a fait de son pétrole. Ce que j`ai vu, les rapports internationaux qui l`attestent, est une œuvre d`espoir.

 

La République française, à la même époque, a mis en place en Afrique un système loin de ses valeurs et de l`image qu`elle aime renvoyer au monde. Comment des institutions solides et démocratiques, des esprits brillants et éclairés, ont-ils pu tisser des réseaux violant systématiquement la loi, la justice et la démocratie? Pourquoi des journalistes réputés, de tout bord, ont-ils toléré ce qu`ils ont vu? Pourquoi des partis politiques et des ONG, par ailleurs prompts a s`enflammer, n`ont-ils rien voulu voir?

 

L`Occident a fermé les yeux sur les crimes de la France

 

Je ne condamne pas. J`ai partagé cet aveuglement. J`étais comme eux, avant de glisser l`œil dans le trou de la serrure et de prendre la mesure de ce secret de famille: la France reste un empire et ne se remet pas de sa puissance perdue. L`indépendance politique a été largement une mascarade en Afrique de l`Ouest.

 

L`Occident a fermé les yeux, car la France se prévalait d`être le «gendarme» qui défendait la moitié du continent contre le communisme. Les Français ont laissé faire, car astucieusement, De Gaulle et ses successeurs ont présenté leur action comme un rempart contre l`hydre américaine. Elf était l`une des pièces maîtresses de cette partie géopolitique.

 

Le double jeu a été facilité par la certitude, ancrée dans les mentalités, que «là-bas, c`est différent». Là-bas, c`est normal la corruption, le népotisme, la guerre, la violence. Là-bas, c`est normal la présence de l`armée française, les proconsuls à l`ambassade ou à l`état-major, les camps militaires. Là-bas, c`est normal l`instruction des gardes présidentielles. Là-bas, c`est normal la captation des richesses naturelles.

 

D`ailleurs, «tout le monde fait pareil». Jeune ou vieux, de gauche ou de droite, nul Français ne songe à s`offusquer de voir nos soldats mener, presque chaque année, une opération militaire en Afrique, au Tchad, en Côte d`Ivoire, au Rwanda, quand tous se gaussent de cette Amérique venue faire la police en Irak, en maquillant d`un fard démocratique les intérêts géopolitiques et pétroliers de Washington. Il y a pourtant bien des symétries.

 

J`ai vu récemment un documentaire sur la guerre du Biafra, quatre ou cinq demi-heures de témoignage brut des principaux acteurs, sans commentaires. Je suis restée sans voix. A ceux qui sont nés après 1970, le Biafra ne dit rien. Dans cette région du Nigeria, riche en pétrole, une ethnie, chrétienne et animiste armée par la France, réclama l`indépendance. S`ensuivit une guerre meurtrière de trois ans, révolte financée depuis l`Elysée via des sociétés suisses.

 

La télévision française aimait alors montrer les enfants affamés que les militaires français ramenaient par avion pour les soigner, jamais elle ne laissait voir la cargaison de l`aller, remplie d`armes. A l`image maintenant, les anciens collaborateurs de Jacques Foccart, repus dans leurs fauteuils Louis XV, détaillent sans émotion ces montages illégaux. Les officiers, lieutenants d`alors, généraux d`aujourd`hui, racontent ce bon tour le sourire aux lèvres. Fin du documentaire. Pas un mot, pas une ligne dans les livres d`histoire.

 

La France au cœur de la guerre du Biafra et du massacre des Bamilékés au Cameroun

 

Des drames comme celui-ci, l`Afrique en contient des dizaines, soigneusement passés sous silence. Les massacres des Bamiléké au Cameroun par la France du Général De Gaulle, le génocide des Tutsi commis par un régime soutenu par François Mitterrand, les assassinats d'opposants, les manipulations d`élections.. Le passif de la France sur le continent africain n`a rien à envier à l'impérialisme américain en Amérique latine ou au Moyen-Orient.

 

Il est à la mode parmi les intellectuels français de se plaindre du mouvement de repentance qui s`est répandu depuis quelques années. Les bienfaits de la colonisation, à inscrire dans les manuels scolaires, ont même fait l'objet d'une proposition de loi, largement soutenue par les députés.

 

Bien sûr, l'histoire de la France en Afrique ou en Asie du sud-est a compté aussi des aventuriers sincères, exportateurs, instituteurs ou pionniers, qui ont fait corps avec les pays qu`ils ont découverts. A Madagascar, les Vazas, ces pieds noirs malgaches, ne cessent de louer devant moi l`état des routes et des infrastructures françaises au moment de l`indépendance.

 

Mais les peuples sont comme les familles. On ne peut pas faire le tri de la mémoire. Il est des secrets soigneusement cachés dont l`onde portée va bien au-delà d`une ou de deux générations. Les enfants héritent de tout: du malheur comme du bonheur, de la richesse comme des dettes.

 

La République française paie aujourd'hui la facture de son passé. Il suffit de dérouler la liste des appellations officielles des Maghrébins nés dans un département français avant 1962 ou sur le sol hexagonal depuis les années 1970. Par la loi, ils furent et sont des Français comme les autres.

 

Les gouvernements successifs n`ont pourtant cessé d'inventer des périphrases : «indigène musulman», «sujet africain non naturalisé», «JFOM» (Jeune français originaire du Maghreb), «jeune issu de l`immigration», «fils de harkis», «jeune des quartiers», «Arabo-musulman», «Français d'origine arabe», «Français musulman»…

 

La France vit encore comme si en Afrique, elle était chez elle, et comme si, ses enfants d`ascendance africaine n`étaient pas Français. Le développement de la Françafrique, notre tolérance vis-à-vis des réseaux, tout ramène à ce secret colonial, cet empire qui hante les esprits comme un fantôme. Oui, Total, la première entreprise française, est riche et prospère.

 

Mais la manière dont la firme s`est bâtie fait partie de l`héritage. Qui osera un jour rendre au Nigeria, au Cameroun, au Gabon, au Congo-Brazzaville ce que la France leur doit? Qui contestera les contrats conclus par Areva pour l`uranium du Niger ou ceux des mines d`or de Sadiola au Mali, deux pays parmi les plus pauvres du globe, qui ne touchent qu`une part dérisoire des richesses prélevées dans leur sol? La République a contracté une dette qu`il lui faudra bien honorer.

 

Notre prospérité est nourrie de richesses que nous détournons. A certains de ces sans-papiers qui risquent leur vie pour gagner l`Europe, il pourrait-être versé une rente au lieu d`un avis d`expulsion. Je rêve pour ce pays que j`aime, d`un réveil collectif.

 

Une France digne de son idéal et de son héritage de 1789 est incompatible avec la Françafrique: ce qu`une génération a fait, une autre peut le défaire. C`est possible.

          Re: MADAGASCAR   
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

"Mère Nature" travaille de façon mystérieuse. Les hommes, les animaux, les plantes, les insectes, les microorganismes et bien plus sont tous nourris par elle. Parmi ses créations on trouve ce qui est le plus beau, fascinant et mystérieux ! 

On trouve tellement d'espèces bizarres et uniques encore jamais rencontrées, ou que même dans notre esprit arrive difficilement à imaginer ! Voici 10 des animaux les plus insolites au monde que vous n'avez sûrement jamais vu ou entendu parler.

1 - Aye-Aye

Ne se trouvant que sur l'île de Madagascar, le Aye-Aye est un type rare de lémurien. Ils sont généralement bruns foncés ou noirs, avec une queue touffue qui est plus grosse que leur corps. Le Aye-Aye a de très gros yeux, des doigts allongés et des oreilles grandes et sensitives. C'est le primate nocturne le plus grand au monde.

2 - Pieuvre Dumbo

La pieuvre Dumbo est un genre de pieuvre des abysses. Ces mignonnes petites créatures sont nommées d'après l'éléphant Dumbo de Disney en raison de leurs deux nageoires particulières ressemblant à des oreilles d'éléphant. Il existe au moins 13 espèces de pieuvres Dumbo, ayant chacune un trait distinctif les distinguant des autres pieuvres Dumbo.

3 - Dauphin de l'Irrawaddy

Le dauphin de l'Irrawaddy est une espèce de dauphin qu'on retrouve près des littoraux, dans les estuaires et dans des fleuves dans des parties du golfe du Bengale et dans l'Asie du Sud-Est. Ces dauphins ressemblent aux orques par leur grande tête arrondie, avec un bec distinctif.

4 - Gazelle gérénuk

Le gérénuk, dont le nom signifie « antilope girafe » en Somalie, est une antilope à long cou qu'on retrouve dans la Corne de l'Afrique et dans la région des Grands Lacs. Elle ressemble presque à un mammifère en forme de mante religieuse.

5 - Dugong

Mais qu'est-ce que c'est ? Le dugong est un mammifère marin qu'on trouve dans les eaux côtières de l'Afrique de l'Est à l'Australie, comprenant la mer Rouge, l'océan Indien et l'océan Pacifique. Ces mammifères végétariens ont une apparence et un comportement semblables à ceux des lamantins, mais leur queue est triangulaire.

6 - Taupe condylure étoilé

On trouve cette taupe dans  les terres basses et humides d'Amérique. Elle peut facilement être identifiée par ces vingt-deux tentacules entourant son museau. Ces créatures uniques utilisent leur museau comme un organe sensoriel doté de plus de 25 000 capteurs sensoriels ou papilles, connu comme l'organe d'Eimer.

7 - Crabe Yéti

Le crabe Yéti ou Kiwa hirsuta est un crustacé qui a été découvert pour la première fois en 2005 dans l'océan Pacifique Sud. C'est un crabe particulier qui a des pinces très poilus et des yeux fortement diminués, c'est pourquoi on pense qu'il est aveugle.

8 - Blobfish

Le blobfish est un poisson d'eau profonde qui ressemble beaucoup à un « blob », d'où son nom. On le trouve au large des côtes de l'Australie, de la Tasmanie et de la Nouvelle-Zélande. La densité du blobfish gélatineux est légèrement plus faible que celle de l'eau, ce qui lui permet de flotter au-dessus du plancher océanique.

9 - Poisson chauve-souris à lèvres rouges

On trouve ce poisson semblant porter du rouge à lèvres à une profondeur de 3 à 76 m au large des îles Galapagos et du Pérou. C'est apparemment un mauvais nageur et il doit se reposer sur les nageoires pectorales pour « marcher » sur le plancher océanique.

10 - Fourmi panda

On la retrouve sur le littoral du centre du Chili. Il s'agit d'une fourmi fascinante dont le corps a des marques ressemblant à celles d'un panda. Elle est aussi connue comme Euspinolia militaris.

Et ce sont seulement quelques unes des formes de vie fascinantes que la nature nous offre.

          Re: MADAGASCAR   
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

We love Ocean Jasper from Madagascar even though it is hard to find high quality rough these days. We recently found a couple great slabs, though. This is a designer cabochon we cut from one. This is one of the nicer ocean jasper cabs we've seen in awhile.

As with all our designer cabochons the back is polished, and the edges are slightly beveled for easy setting.

Avant de partir à Madagascar je me suis inscrite pour un swapp chez Kiara http://lesmotsdekiara.blogspot.com, mon premier échange!  J'ai eu la chance d'avoir comme swappée Maria du blog  El mundo de Maria  http://mundo-maria.blogspot.com, une artiste http://oleohlala.blogspot.com, et j'ai profité de mon séjour à Madagascar pour lui faire son colis de Noël que vous pouvez voir sur son blog. En début de semaine j'ai reçu un gros paquet :

vous pouvez noter avec quelle délicatesse j'ai éventré le carton, tellement pressée de découvrir les cadeaux de ma Mère Noël.... Apès avoir déchiqueté les emballages qui avaient tous un porte-bonheur : coccinelle, trèfle à 4 feuilles... voilà ce que j'ai découvert

des friandises marseillaises, tellement bonnes qu'il n'en reste que 5 que j'ai cachées, un nougat que je garde pour la veillée de Noël, des friandises espagnoles (l'Espagne est le pays de naissance de ma swappée), une superbe pochette toute douce avec un pompon, emplie de bijoux à recycler,  une bougie à la rose, 2 crèmes pour les mains, un gant de massage avec un savon au karité qui m'ont permis de prendre un bain digne d'un SPA et une tasse à thé à pois...

Most children who took part in a comprehensive malnutrition programme in Madagascar reached and maintained the recovery threshold.

Acta Paediatr. 2017 Jun;106(6):960-966

Authors: Magnin M, Stoll B, Voahangy R, Jeannot E

Abstract
AIM: The benefits of including nutritional education in programmes that tackle moderate and severe acute malnutrition remain poorly documented. This study in Madagascar evaluated the nutritional status of children who took part in an innovative programme that included maternal education, on completion and after a year.
METHODS: Each year, this outpatient programme admits 2400 malnourished children from six months to 59 months in the lower districts of Antananarivo, Madagascar. Children were drawn by lots, and their anthropometric data were measured. A descriptive retrospective longitudinal study was conducted on 573 children who took part between 2010 and 2013.
RESULTS: The programme lasted an average of 38 days and, on completion, 82.2% had reached the recovery threshold, and 16.2% had moved up to mild malnutrition. This was achieved with food supplements of 720 kcal per day, despite the Malagasy Public Health recommendation of 1000-1500 kcal per day. After one year, 79.1% were still above the recovery threshold, and 15% had mild malnutrition. The recovery rate was higher for children under 24 months of age (odds ratio 2.9, 95% confidence interval 1.93-4.59).
CONCLUSION: Most children who attended this malnutrition programme with maternal education in Madagascar reached the recovery threshold on completion and had maintained it after one year.

Netflix unterstützt übrigens ab sofort den Dolby Atmos-Surround-Sound (Premium-Account vorausgesetzt). Mit »Okja« vom »Snowpiercer«-Regisseur Bong Joon Ho ist auch schon direkt ein Titel verfügbar (weitere sind unten eingetragen). Vorerst unterstützen nur die Xbox-Apps das neue Soundformat, bald sollen die 2017er LG OLEDs folgen und anschließend weitere Geräte. Bis jetzt bot nur Maxdome als Streaminganbieter Dolby Atmos bei vereinzelten Titeln an. Noch eine gute Nachricht: Seitens Netflix wurde das OK für ein 2stündiges Serienfinale von »Sense8« gegeben (highfive)

          F*@#!%& Cheap Bastards - A Modest Suggestion   


I buy the random electronic device.
Actually, tons of them.
Laptops, two DSLR cameras, three or four handicams, a pocket camera, a few dozen flashlights, a couple of pocket recorders, one hi-def digital sound recorder, multiple monitors, DVD/BD players, a game console, and all with any number of remote controls for same. And then the night vision goggles, laser range finders, red dot scopes, handheld GPSs, and GMRS/HT/SW/Ham radios in small armies.

And almost without exception, every single one of these marvels of 21st century technology comes equipped from the manufacturer, by malign fucktarderry, with the cheapest, shoddiest, shittiest, most-likely-to-explode-and-go-tits-up-at-a-critical-moment piece of Chinese SHIT batteries, pounded together in a yurt by Mongolian yak farmers from old wheel weights, saltpeter, and yak shit in the Chinese #37 A-1 Battery Company, Ltd.

WTBlisteringF, corporate cheapskate @$$holes?!?

It's like buying a Ferrari, and finding out they put the crappiest brand of tires from Madagascar onto $800K of sports car. Only stupider.

I've probably filled a notable portion of the local landfill with those shit-tastic pieces of Chinese Fail Fuckerry, mainly because of long experience with chipping exploded melted battery pus out of delicate and expensive devices every single time in the past beyond misty memory if I don't hurl the goddamned things as far from here as possible immediately after opening the original packaging.

JFC, you cheap bean-counting shitstains on a good company, try shipping Duracell, Energizer, or even Panasonic or Maxell/Hitachi name-brand batteries (perhaps you fuckwits have heard of them?), and tell the Who Flung Poo Asstastic Battery Company to pound their cheap worthless trash right back up the ass of the yak that shat it out before you bought them by the metric fuckton, and shipped them out in your products.

I mean, holy shit, it might add 79 cents to the cost of your $800 piece of electronic wonder, or cost you as much from the bottom line, while not making your customers want to force feed your CEO and board of directors consumer batteries using a 4-lb sledgehammer, up the tailpipe, until they come out your noses.

Just saying.

When the day comes I have terminal cancer, I'm taking a wrist rocket and a few buckets of the damned things to the local US HQs buildings of a number of, primarily Asian, electronics companies hereabouts (all well within a tank of gas) on a Sunday, and I swear to Buddha I'll be returning your batteries through all your corporate plate glass windows at about 200 FPS. Call it my version of free shipping.

I highly urge anyone in the SoCal area, even for a visit, to do the same, every time you visit.
Start a trend, maybe.

Perhaps when the cheap jackholes get the bill for American plate glass replacement, they can suddenly see their way clear through the yawning openings in their former glass palaces to buying actual functional consumer batteries for their consumer electronics.

It's certainly worth trying.



And yes, I feel better now.

Ciudad de méxico.- Tras las declaraciones que dio hace unos días Verónica Castro sobre la lamentable situación física y económica que enfrenta Rogelio Guerra, es Maty Huitrón, la presidenta vitalicia de La Casa del Actor, quien señala que si el actor quiere puede regresar al lugar del que salió hace un año.

Eso, dijo, siempre y cuando la esposa de Guerra no ponga un pie en las instalaciones que ella preside y de donde se llevó al primer actor hace año y medio.

"La esposa es insoportable, conmigo nunca se metió, pero corrió a varias cuidadoras que lo atendían aquí y ahí comenzaron los problemas. Un día llega la esposa y dice: 'voy a sacar a mi marido de aquí', yo no lo podía obligar a que se quedara y él no estaba en condiciones de decir algo", indicó.

Maty recordó que cuando Guerra llegó a la Casa del Actor se encontraba en malas condiciones; delgado, sin hablar y sin moverse, algo que a lo largo de su estancia en ese lugar fue mejorando, hasta que la esposa decidió llevárselo.

 SON CAROS LOS CUIDADOS DE ROGELIO

Actualmente su esposa Maribel Robles enfrenta la problemática de desembolsar mensualmente la cantidad de 30 mil pesos, cifra que sólo cubre el pago de los enfermeros y la cama que el actor debe usar.

"Un amigo doctor me estaba pagando los cuidadores de Rogelio desde que lo saqué de La Casa del Actor, además de la renta de la cama, pero en este momento ya se le complicó y desde hace dos meses no me ha podido cubrir ese pago, entonces así yo ya no tengo capacidad para pagar a los cuidadores de mi esposo. Recurrí como siempre a todos los amigos que tenemos para ver si podíamos hacer un evento o algo para poder tener fondos para estos gastos, obviamente parte de esos amigos es Verónica. Toda la ayuda es bien recibida", explicó Robles.

"Ahorita tengo que resolver cómo cubrir mensualmente el pago de los cuidadores y la renta de la cama, lo demás como lo de la vida diaria lo tengo cubierto como lo he hecho durante dos años, pero ahorita no tengo ni cómo sacar estos 30 mil pesos".

          Cronache da uno Stato Canaglia   
Nel dicembre 1990, alla vigilia della prima guerra del Golfo, un tecnico italiano muore in Sudan in circostanze poco chiare. Sullo sfondo delle lotte per l’acqua, per il petrolio e per le anime, si sviluppa un’indagine che percorre il mondo delle missioni, dei servizi segreti, della cooperazione, delle organizzazioni internazionali.Con questo nuovo romanzo Guido Nicosia torna a raccontarci l’Africa già al centro della sua trilogia sul Madagascar.
          La Fame   

«Conosciamo la fame, siamo abituati alla fame: abbiamo fame due, tre volte al giorno. Nelle nostre vite non esiste niente che sia piú frequente, piú costante, piú presente della fame - e, al tempo stesso, per la maggior parte di noi, niente che sia piú lontano dalla fame vera».

Per comprenderla, per raccontarla, Martín Caparrós ha viaggiato attraverso l'India, il Bangladesh, il Niger, il Kenya, il Sudan, il Madagascar, l'Argentina, gli Stati Uniti, la Spagna.

Lí ha incontrato persone che, per diverse ragioni - siccità, povertà estrema, guerre, emarginazione - soffrono la fame. La fame è fatto delle loro storie, e delle storie di coloro che lavorano in condizioni molto precarie per mitigarla e di coloro che vi speculano sopra, affamando tanta gente.

La fame intende, soprattutto, svelare i meccanismi che fanno sí che quasi un miliardo di persone non mangino quanto è necessario. Un prodotto ineludibile dell'ordine mondiale? Il frutto della pigrizia e dell'arretratezza? Un affare di pochi?

Un problema in via di soluzione? Il fallimento di una civiltà?

Un libro scomodo e appassionato, una cronaca che riflette e un saggio che racconta, un pamphlet che denuncia una vergogna intollerabile e cerca vie di uscita per eliminarla con urgenza.


          Everything you need to know about shark encounters   

shark

Many people are terrified of sharks, but when you look at the odds, those fears seem pretty silly.

The average number of people killed annually by sharks is estimated to be about six. (Roughly the same number die from heart disease every 12 seconds.)

"More people are killed by things like flower pots, lawn mowers, toaster ovens, deer, cows, and dogs each year," shark researcher David Shiffman told Smithsonian in 2013. "More people are bitten by other people than by sharks."

Of course, fear isn't rational — you don't see people giving toaster ovens the side-eye, and many other things that people are afraid of, including public speaking and spiders, are unlikely to harm you either.

Humans' fear of sharks, however, has done them a lot of harm.

The shark sport-fishing industry grew tremendously after the film "Jaws" was released in 1975. Soon after that, commercial fisheries started focusing on sharks, and a booming economy in Asia caused demand for shark fins to skyrocket. Shark populations around the world started to plummet, with more than a quarter of shark and ray species now at risk of extinction.

Many sharks are keystone ocean creatures — they're essential to the health of marine ecosystems, so you can't have a healthy ocean without them.

In order to reduce human-shark interactions while protecting sharks at the same time, researchers are using a variety of scientific experiments and common-sense strategies. Learning more about sharks may help us better coexist with them.

What to know when swimming

Education may not sound as sexy as a protective wall or suit, but it's the best way to limit interactions between sharks and people.

Shark bites (that's the term researchers prefer to "attacks," since it implies toothy curiosity, rather than aggressive intent) are extremely rare. But there are a few steps swimmers and surfers can take to make them even less frequent:

- Avoid areas that large sharks are known to frequent. You can't avoid sharks if you swim in the ocean — it's open water, after all. But more dangerous sharks are known to frequent certain beaches at specific times of the year. California surfers, for example, are more likely to encounter sharks in Mendocino County in October and November.

Sharks near boat

- Learn the times of day and parts of water where you're more likely to encounter sharks. Sharks are most active at twilight and in the dark, according to the University of Florida's Natural History Museum. They also like steep drop-offs and the areas in between sandbars.

- Steer clear of certain types of water. In very murky water, it's easier for a shark to mistake a person for something else. Researchers also recommend avoiding waters that are being used by fishermen, since the bait can attract sharks. Waters where there's sewage may also attract the animals (that's a gross place to swim anyway).

- Don't panic. Splashing and panicking if you see a shark is more likely to confuse it and make it think there may be a prey animal nearby. And don't try to grab or harass the animals in any way — people provoke bites by doing this.

- Be aware of the presence of other animals. If you see an area of the water with diving seabirds, that probably means there are plenty of fish to eat there. And that means there could be sharks, too. The National Parks Service also says the seal population off the coast of Cape Cod has started to attract white sharks — so don't swim near seals.

- Play in the ocean in groups. Whether you are swimming, kayaking, or diving, sharks are less likely to approach a group of people than a solo individual.

Ways to make beaches safer for swimmers

Oceanic Whitetip SharkThere's no evidence that killing off sharks (known as culling) makes an area safer for swimmers. But there are a few things that have made a difference:

- Changing the way humans dispose of garbage. Reunion Island, a popular resort territory off the coast of Madagascar, has seen a particularly high number of shark attacks. When researchers started to tag and track sharks there, they realized the animals were congregating where boaters and marina-goers dumped trash — right at the entrance to a populated beach.

People on Reunion Island have also experimented with walling off certain beaches with nets (while inspecting those nets to minimize the chances that turtles or other creatures get caught in them). Still, nets have been criticized for being ineffective and hazardous to marine life in other parts of the world.

Dronestagram user Tahitiflyshoot took this image called “Snorkeling with sharks” over the sparkling waters near Mo'orea island in French Polynesia. The sharks just happened to arrive at just the right moment for a beautiful snap. This image won first place in the category, Nature.

- Moving sharks away from popular beaches. A study in Recife, Brazil found that using specialized fishing gear to catch potentially dangerous sharks and release them (still alive) far away from swimmers and surfers led to a 97% decline in shark encounters.

- Using drones to spot sharks. Off the East Coast of the US, researchers are using drones to spot great whites that are looking for seals. While it's not yet clear whether this technology will be effective in the Atlantic's dark waters, it has proved successful in Australia and California.

- Setting sharks up with Twitter accounts. Western Australia has tagged more than 300 sharks with transmitters that sound out their location — and tweet if they get near a beach or surfing area.

- Installing a shark repellent cable that emits an electrical pulse. South Africa has tried putting a cable that emits an electric pulse along a section of seafloor between a beach and open ocean. Sharks can sense electrical fields, so theoretically the pulse would be strong enough to bother them (and drive them away from the area), but not strong enough to harm them. However, no sharks showed up at the beach where this device was being tested, so it's impossible to know how effective it is. There's also not enough evidence to say whether specially painted wet-suits and surfboards can deter sharks either.

Because the chances of a shark bite are so small, however, most of these innovations are not necessary for the average beachgoer. And remember, we kill 100 million sharks a year, 11,000 every hour. They have a lot more to fear from us than the other way around.

- Be aware of the presence of other animals. If you see an area of the water with diving seabirds, that probably means there are plenty of fish to eat there. And that means there could be sharks, too. The National Parks Service also says the seal population off the coast of Cape Cod has started to attract white sharks — so don't swim near seals.

- Play in the ocean in groups. Whether you are swimming, kayaking, or diving, sharks are less likely to approach a group of people than a solo individual.

Ways to make beaches safer for swimmers

Oceanic Whitetip SharkThere's no evidence that killing off sharks (known as culling) makes an area safer for swimmers. But there are a few things that have made a difference:

- Changing the way humans dispose of garbage. Reunion Island, a popular resort territory off the coast of Madagascar, has seen a particularly high number of shark attacks. When researchers started to tag and track sharks there, they realized the animals were congregating where boaters and marina-goers dumped trash — right at the entrance to a populated beach.

People on Reunion Island have also experimented with walling off certain beaches with nets (while inspecting those nets to minimize the chances that turtles or other creatures get caught in them). Still, nets have been criticized for being ineffective and hazardous to marine life in other parts of the world.

Dronestagram user Tahitiflyshoot took this image called “Snorkeling with sharks” over the sparkling waters near Mo'orea island in French Polynesia. The sharks just happened to arrive at just the right moment for a beautiful snap. This image won first place in the category, Nature.

- Moving sharks away from popular beaches. A study in Recife, Brazil found that using specialized fishing gear to catch potentially dangerous sharks and release them (still alive) far away from swimmers and surfers led to a 97% decline in shark encounters.

- Using drones to spot sharks. Off the East Coast of the US, researchers are using drones to spot great whites that are looking for seals. While it's not yet clear whether this technology will be effective in the Atlantic's dark waters, it has proved successful in Australia and California.

- Setting sharks up with Twitter accounts. Western Australia has tagged more than 300 sharks with transmitters that sound out their location — and tweet if they get near a beach or surfing area.

- Installing a shark repellent cable that emits an electrical pulse. South Africa has tried putting a cable that emits an electric pulse along a section of seafloor between a beach and open ocean. Sharks can sense electrical fields, so theoretically the pulse would be strong enough to bother them (and drive them away from the area), but not strong enough to harm them. However, no sharks showed up at the beach where this device was being tested, so it's impossible to know how effective it is. There's also not enough evidence to say whether specially painted wet-suits and surfboards can deter sharks either.

Because the chances of a shark bite are so small, however, most of these innovations are not necessary for the average beachgoer. And remember, we kill 100 million sharks a year, 11,000 every hour. They have a lot more to fear from us than the other way around.

          Re: MADAGASCAR   
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world.

To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

          Robinson Crusoe, de Daniel Defoe   


A la manera de un Marco Polo sin la cabeza tan llena de mitos y leyendas, Robinson Crusoe nos narra la historia de cómo durante su primera juventud es acosado por un ansia inexorable de conocer el mundo, lo que lo irá orillando a salir de la comodidad y medianía de la casa paterna en busca de aventuras, las cuales, por cierto, no tardarán en aparecer bajo la apariencia de las más extravagantes desgracias. Así, luego de ser sorprendido en alta mar por un barco pirata es reducido a la esclavitud, y aunque logra escapar y llegar al Brasil, en donde compra una plantación, más tarde emprenderá un viaje comercial que significará no sólo un naufragio tras una horrible tormenta, sino luchar por salvar su vida y arribar a una isla desierta, en donde vivirá en casi completa soledad por veintiocho años. 

Esta es la parte más recordada de su aventura, ya que la minuciosidad con que describe esa impensable cotidianidad cuyo principal objetivo es la supervivencia resulta tan emocionante como angustiosa, sobre todo cuando se percata de que cada tanto arriban a su isla lanchas repletas de caníbales que dan rienda suelta a sus monstruosos ritos de guerra, en los que el clímax llega cuando devoran a sus prisioneros. 

Y es a propósito de esto último que Defoe muestra ser un hijo de su época: Viernes, el aborigen caníbal rescatado por Crusoe, no puede sino ser su criado, no sólo por su condición de “inferioridad” moral y social, sino por tener ellos, los ingleses (y los europeos por extensión) el derecho del colonizador, es decir, el derecho de tomar tierras y seres humanos e imponerles su supuesta superioridad civilizatoria, en aras de su propio bien, por supuesto. Y lo mismo sucede cuando habla de sus tierras en el Brasil, que logra recuperar tras escapar de la isla y que le rinden cuantiosos dividendos, ya que el tema de la esclavitud es visto como algo natural cuando se habla de las expediciones al África para la recolección de esclavos, de las baratijas con que los seducen a cambio de su fuerza de trabajo, en fin, la visión racional y sabelotodista de gran parte de Europa durante el Siglo de las Luces. 

Sin embargo, si bien Robinson Crusoe refleja una visión moral que hoy resulta anacrónica, no se empantana en aleccionar al lector, sino que sigue el incansable recuento de sus aventuras: luego de ser el único sobreviviente en la isla desierta, se convierte en el gobernador de una pequeña colonia compuesta por nativos, piratas ingleses y náufragos españoles, regresa a su patria, en donde tiene esposa, hijos y el espejismo de una vida sedentaria que, una vez muerta su esposa, dará paso a un nuevo nomadismo recalcitrante. Es así que, disfrazado con los atavíos de un comerciante, emprende nuevos viajes ahora hacia los mares del Índico, con lo que llega a Madagascar, al Golfo de Bengala, adquiere un buque manchado con crímenes, lo que provocará una persecución a muerte, como si de un cruel pirata se tratara, y entonces deberá huir a la parte más oriental de Asia, a los mares de China, donde describe, no sin burlas condescendientes, el esplendor de ese imperio que inflamara la imaginación europea durante muchos siglos. De ahí su regreso a Europa por tierra a través de China, el vasto campo tártaro, Rusia y su final arribo a Inglaterra, lleno de riquezas, vejez y aventuras.

A decir de J. M. Coetzee en su prólogo, Defoe tuvo el deseo de que esta novela perteneciera al ámbito de la Historia, pero lo que logró fue hacer que perteneciera a la esfera del mito, al nicho de los libros fundacionales, en este caso de la novela moderna inglesa, ya que sus personajes se han vuelto parte de la conciencia colectiva entre las sociedades de habla inglesa (un poco como sucede con el Quijote y Sancho entre las naciones de habla hispana). Por eso, al hablar de sus anacronismos morales, insistí en que, si bien pueden ser un tanto molestos en pleno siglo XXI, no se convierten en obstáculos insalvables a la hora de disfrutar todo el cúmulo de aventuras que contiene, lo que inclusive lo emparenta con libros tan canónicos como Las mil y una noches, o el Libro de las maravillas, de Marco Polo.

Desde las 9:00 h XVIII Feria del Libro Usado del Bicentenario: Sala Audiovisual.
Facultad de Arte Universidad Mayor. Santo Domingo 711, esquina Mac-Iver. Metro Bellas Artes.
- La Feria del Libro Usado ha dispuesto, a partir del Miércoles 3 de Febrero, una Sala Audiovisual que proyectará durante toda la semana -a modo de rotativo- una selección de películas nacionales, entre las cuales se encuentran “Chile puede”, “Taxi para tres”, “El rey de los huevones”, “Machuca”, “Fuga”, Coronación”, “Julio comienza en julio” y “Dawson. Isla 10”. Asimismo, se proyectarán una serie de cortos realizados por estudiantes de la Escuela de Cine de la Universidad Mayor. Estas historias han participado en festivales nacionales e internacionales de cine, y sus temáticas abordan desde una pelea entre hermanos mapuches que van a la guerra ("El final del hombre", 2007), una pareja de desconocidos que se quieren suicidar ("A tiempo", 2008) y una familia que es abducida en el campo (Luces, 2008). Los días sábado y domingo la programación será infantil, incluyendo títulos como “Papelucho”, “Fantasía 2000”, “Wall-E”, El castillo andante” y “Los viajes de Chiriro”. La Sala Audiovisual estará abierta al público desde el Miércoles 3 de Febrero hasta el Domingo 14 de Febrero (9:00 h a 19:00 h), la proyección de películas es continua, y la entrada es liberada para el público asistente a la Feria del Libro Usado del Bicentenario.
Programación:
9:00 h Cortos de la Escuela de Cine Universidad Mayor (UM):
-- "El final del Hombre", de José Manuel Alliende (2007 / 13 min): Trata la historia de tres hermanos caciques en pleno siglo XVI, que luchan contra la represión española. Las vicisitudes de la guerra desencadenan un drama familiar y la exterminación de una raza.
-- "A tiempo", de Gabriela Larraín (2008 / 17 min): Dos jóvenes, Ana y Bruno, se conocen a la salida de una fiesta, y descubren que ambos quieren morir, por lo que deciden hacerlo juntos. Pero al mismo tiempo inician una especial relación, que se verá remecida cuando Bruno se entere de un secreto que ella ha estado guardando.
-- "Luces", de Alexis Bohn (2008 / 14 min): Un joven matrimonio decide hacer un viaje al sur de Chile para celebrar una fiesta familiar, el día de solsticio de invierno. Todo se verá interrumpido por la incredulidad de la esposa, con respecto a creencias familiares, lo que provocará la abducción extraterrestre de toda la familia a excepción de ella, quien sufrirá por la consecuencia de sus actos.
10:00 h "Chile Puede", de Ricardo Larraín (Chile, 2008 / 85 min): Guillermo Zúñiga es un típico y tranquilo profesor de castellano. Salvo por un detalle: su modesta audacia le ha llevado a aceptar una oferta delirante para convertirse en el primer astronauta chileno en el espacio. El viaje cambiará su vida y -de paso- gatillará un serio incidente internacional.
12:00 h Cortos de la Escuela de Cine UM: "El final del Hombre", "A tiempo" y "Luces".
13:00 h "El Rey de los Huevones", de Boris Quercia (Chile, 2006 / 96 min): Anselmo es un hombre justo obligado a vivir en un mundo injusto. Su inocencia lo llevará a involucrarse en peligrosas situaciones que lo harán preguntarse si es que no se necesita una cuota de maldad para lograr la felicidad.
15:00 h Cortos de la Escuela de Cine UM: "El final del Hombre", "A tiempo" y "Luces".
16:00 h "Fuga", de Pablo Larraín (Chile, 2006 / 110 min): Montalbán es un músico atrapado en una composición inconclusa. Siendo niño es testigo de la muerte de su hermana quien es asesinada sobre un piano, hecho en el cual se compone accidentalmente una melodía. Esto lo transforma en un músico obsesionado y mentalmente perturbado, atrapado por esa música: el compositor de una música mortal, vanguardista y codiciada. Años después, otro hombre intenta rescatar esa original sinfonía, sin saber los peligros que encierra tal hazaña. Ricardo Coppa es un músico mediocre y sin talento que pretende reconocimiento y éxito; un Salieri de todos los tiempos. Junto a un grupo de músicos emprende un viaje en búsqueda de Montalbán y su olvidada creación musical, con el objeto de transformar esa música en una composición propia.
18:00 h Cortos de la Escuela de Cine UM: "El final del Hombre", "A tiempo" y "Luces".
19:00 h "Julio comienza en Julio", de Silvio Caiozzi (Chile, 1976 [se estrenó en 1979] / 120 min): Para el connotado terrateniente de comienzos de siglo, don Julio García del Castaño, el fin siempre justifica los medios. Ordena iniciar a su hijo Julio en la vida sexual, pues será quien herede las tierras algún día. Pero Julio se enamora de la prostituta María y desde ese día sus ojos se volcarán exclusivamente a ella, con el consiguiente derrumbe del imperio forjado por su familia.

14:30 h Cine Niños: Animaciones Cubo Negro Sesión 5 (57 min) [Próximas exhibiciones: Sábado 6]

16:00 h 34º Festival CineUC 2010: Muestra francesa Agnès Varda: Serie de cortos 1/3.
Sala Cine UC. Centro de Extensión UC. Alameda 390. Metro Universidad Católica.
- Una de las pocas mujeres que formó parte de la Nueva Ola Francesa, Agnès Varda se adjudicó uno de los primeros triunfos del movimiento con Cleo de 5 a7, drama sobre las tribulaciones de una frívola cantante que se derrumba existencialmente cuando se entera de que tiene cáncer. Filme de gran soltura, definirá la estética posterior del cine de la autora, atenta al universo femenino y a un mundo poético marcado por la nostalgia y la tragedia. Paralelamente, Varda se irá acercando progresivamente al registro documental del que casi no se ha despegado en los últimos años.
Detalle de los cortos:
- Los cortos "turísticos" (Les courts "touristiques"):
-- "Oh! estaciones, oh! castillos!" ("Ô saisons, ô châteaux" / 1957 / 21 min): Paseo por los castillos del Loira, mostrados por orden cronológico (de construcción), con comentarios, poemas del siglo XVI, y reflexiones de jardineros.
-- "Placer de amor en Irán" ("Plaisir d’amour en Iran" / Francia, 1976 / 6 min): Cómo hablar de amor? levantando la mirada hacia las mezquitas o hablar de arquitectura susurrando en la almohada. Este cortometraje es una variación sobre las emociones amorosas de Pomme y Ali Darius (en "La una canta, la otra no"), pero también puede ser la fantasía de cualquier pareja de enamorados en lugares tan perfectos como la Gran Mezquita del Rey de Ispahán, punto de unión del arte sacro y profano.
-- "Costeando la costa" ("Du côté de la côte" / 1958 / 26 min): Visita turística y documental de la Rivera francesa. El exotismo, los colores del turismo, los del Carnaval y del Edén. Una isla. Sombrillas que se cierran al final mecidas por una bonita canción de Delerue.
- Los cortos "contestatarios" (Le courts "contestataires"):
-- "Tío Yanco" ("Oncle Yanco" / 1967 / 22 min): En las afueras acuáticas de San Francisco, vive un griego en una embarcación. Pinta ciudades celestes y bizantinas. Navega en una barca a vela latina. En su casa-barco recibe a hippies y contestatarios.
-- "Black Panthers" (1968 / 27 min): Documental rodado en Oakland (California), durante las manifestaciones por el proceso de Huey Newton, líder de los activistas negros en el tiempo en que los Black Panthers tenían un programa y proyectos, manifestaban, bailaban y declamaban, época en que preocupaban a Estados Unidos. Premio del Festival de Oberhausen (RFA), 1970.
-- "Respuesta de mujeres" ("Réponse de Femmes" / 1975): 1957: Año de la Mujer. El canal de TV Antenne 2 pide a siete mujeres cineastas que contesten en siete minutos a la pregunta: "¿Qué es ser mujer?" Agnès Varda contesta con un panfleto cinematográfico ("Notre corps" – "Notre sexe"). Mujeres que con su mentalidad de mujer, hablan de sexo, de deseo, de publicidad y de hijos (tenerlos o no tenerlos). Una mujer embarazada y desnuda, bailando y riendo a carcajadas, provocó reproches de los telespectadores. Película nominada a los César 1976, categoría Cortometrajes Documentales.

20:00 h Ciclo de Cine por la Diversidad Sexual "Cine de Colores": "Bent", de Sean Mathias (Reino Unido, 1997 / 105 min) [Aporte Voluntario]

En el campo de concentración se enamora de Horst, un muchacho que lleva la etiqueta rosada con orgullo. Basada en la obra de Martin Sherman. Temática: Gay.

Esta muestra se realiza en el CCE y tiene sedes de exhibición en la comuna Pedro Aguirre Cerda. Colaboraciones: Institut Ramon Llull, Joventut del Centre Català, Municipio Pedro Aguirre Cerda, Consejería Cultural. Organiza: CCE.
-- Esta comedia negra narra la odisea del taxista Ulises que cree poder salir de sus estrecheces haciéndose cómplice de sus asaltantes. El dinero fácil lo saca de su ruta: en algún lugar del barrio alta está el gran botín que les permitirá pagar el Lada. Tras varios asaltos fallidos y agobiados por la “Tolerancia Cero”, los asaltantes de pacotilla terminan metidos en la casa de Ulises, en su intimidad y en la de Javiera, su hija regalona. Eso es mucho para el taxista, quien decide cortar sus lazos de manera radical.


DANZA

21:30 h Danza Aérea "Entre Millones".
Plaza de Armas de Puente Alto. Metro Plaza de Puente Alto.
- ‘Entre Millones’ es un espectáculo contemporáneo que toma la esencia de la estructura tradicional del circo, es decir, distintos números asociados a técnicas específicas. Los cuadros nos dan la posibilidad de dar un punto de vista referido a la soledad del hombre de hoy, a partir de la velocidad que no nos da tiempo para pensar, decidir, ni tampoco de mirar hacia adentro... La estructura dramática se compone por seis cuadros en los que utilizaremos acrobacia aérea (aro y trapecio balance), de suelo (acro-balance y equilibrio) elementos de alpinismo (péndulo, caminata vertical, descensos), movimiento, danza y música. Durante el proceso de creación contamos con la asistencia coreográfica de Natasha Torres (Compañía de Danza Movimiento) y la creación musical por Manuel Gatti. Todo esto contenido en una estructura, con una considerable altura de 8 metros, que sirve como soporte para el desarrollo del espectáculo.

Sus aventuras claudican con el golpe de Estado dando inicio a una nueva época de temor y dudas, que tal como se narra en el episodio bíblico al que alude el título, transformará a Brando en un “hombre de poca fe”.

- Es una obra de teatro que nace de la investigación de quiénes fueron y son las mujeres que allá en los míticos años 60 eran pequeñas hembritas a las que les florecían los pechos y una gota de sangre anunciaba que ya eran mujeres y hoy son abuelas. este viaje teatral es a través de sus cartas, las enviadas y recibidas, públicas o privadas, y de sus diarios de vida. La invitación es a desentrañar y a contar, a través del lenguaje teatral, la historia íntima e invisible de los últimos 40 años en nuestro país. En el marco del Bicentenario de la Independencia de Chile, es muy importante plasmar una mirada de género sobre nuestro país, su historia y sus mujeres, y así enriquecer las distintas visiones que ya existen.

(Clasificados alfabéticamente por temas, ordenados por hora)


CINE

12:00 h 34º Festival CineUC 2010: Muestra francesa Agnès Varda [Desde el Jueves 14 al Domingo 24 de Enero, 12:00 h / Jueves 4 al Domingo 7 de Febrero, 16:00 h]: “El Espigador y las Espigadoras”, de Agnès Varda ("Les glaneurs et la glaneuse", "Los espigadores y la espigadora" / Francia, 2000 / 82 min)
Sala Cine UC. Centro de Extensión UC. Alameda 390. Metro Universidad Católica.
- Una de las pocas mujeres que formó parte de la Nueva Ola Francesa, Agnès Varda se adjudicó uno de los primeros triunfos del movimiento con Cleo de 5 a7, drama sobre las tribulaciones de una frívola cantante que se derrumba existencialmente cuando se entera de que tiene cáncer. Filme de gran soltura, definirá la estética posterior del cine de la autora, atenta al universo femenino y a un mundo poético marcado por la nostalgia y la tragedia. Paralelamente, Varda se irá acercando progresivamente al registro documental del que casi no se ha despegado en los últimos años.
Sobre la película: Por distintos lugares de Francia, la directora Agnès Varda se va encontrando con los espigadores, recolectores y gente que busca entre la basura. Constituye un gran contraste con el mundo de los espigadores de ayer, de las mujeres campesinas que escarbaban para conseguir los pequeños granos de trigo que quedaban después de la cosecha. Papas, manzanas y otros alimentos desechados, cosas sin dueño, relojes sin manillas, televisores, juguetes; éste es el menú de los espigadores de hoy. Agnès Varda es ella misma, también una especie de espigadora con su cámara, recogiendo imágenes para este documental tan personal. No hay límite de edad para la curiosidad. El mismo hecho de filmar es, de por sí, una forma de recolección.

Por supuesto, además está la carga adicional de tener que intentar explicar su partida a su amigo más reciente y robot guardián suyo, Bumblebee. El objetivo de Sam es llevar una vida universitaria normal, pero para hacerlo, deberá olvidar su destino. Mientras Sam ha hecho todo lo posible por dejar atrás el conflicto de Mission City y volver a su rutina diaria, la batalla entre los Autobots y los Decepticons, aunque haya sido un incidente súper secreto, ha provocado muchos cambios. El Sector 7 ha sido desmantelado y su soldado más leal, el agente Simmons, despedido sumariamente. En su lugar se ha creado una nueva agencia, NEST. Empleando mandos con experiencia de campo como Lennox y Epps, NEST pretende trabajar codo con codo con los Autobots para evitar otra confrontación mortal con los Decepticons. Por desgracia, un asesor de seguridad del gobierno, Theodore Galloway tiene muy poca previsión como para comprender totalmente los inexorables peligros que acechan. Dispuesto a hacerse con el control de todas las organizaciones de defensa, junto con su potencial de poder, y al mismo tiempo deshacerse de lo que él considera un frívolo gabinete gubernamental, Galloway se esfuerza por acabar con NEST, creyendo que toda amenaza de guerra ha desparecido hace tiempo.

-- Para Wilhelmina "Wil" Pang, neoyorquina de 28 años, la vida es una representación de juegos malabares entre una prometedora carrera como cirujana y sus responsabilidades como hija obediente. Al igual que la línea 7 del metro que la lleva a visitar a su familia china una vez por semana, Wil está permanentemente en tránsito entre dos mundos. Las expectativas de la sociedad de Flushing, Queens, de la que procede, y su propio deseo de alejarse de ella han logrado que Wil esté satisfecha con la vida paralela que ha optado llevar, a pesar de que ello conlleve un involuntario juego de charadas con su madre viuda y el viejo mundo que ésta representa. El baile de máscaras es cómico incluso en su dolor, ya que Wil tolera las citas semanales que su madre le organiza para que se relacione con buenos partidos americanos de procedencia china en las reuniones sociales chinas de los viernes; sin embargo, cuando la máscara de Ma se resquebraja por primera vez, enseguida todo se convierte en una farsa. Temática: Lésbica.

Constituye uno de los capítulos decisivos en la historia del teatro ya que atrajo a un público masivo a las salas de Santiago, Valparaíso y algunas provincias. Su amplia llegada responde a las historias de amor y desencuentros que narraba cada pieza, junto a las declamaciones, la música y el canto que generaban una atmósfera festiva en la que la audiencia tomaba parte activa. Este espectáculo selecciona temas de zarzuelas y operetas pertenecientes al repertorio clásico que son interpretadas por un grupo de estudiantes de canto lírico de la Universidad Mayor, conformado por Rocío Reyes, Soledad Mayorga, Valentina Villouta (sopranos), Cristina Lara (mezzo) y Leonora Letelier (piano), dirigidos por Patricio Méndez.

Juntos inician un viaje sin destino por el Chile de 1973, un viaje que se transforma en un peregrinar de enseñanzas cristianas y en uno metafísico amparado por la marihuana. Sus aventuras claudican con el golpe de Estado dando inicio a una nueva época de temor y dudas, que tal como se narra en el episodio bíblico al que alude el título, transformará a Brando en un “hombre de poca fe”.

Key Messages

In West Africa, regional staple food production during the 2016/17 marketing year was well above average. International rice and wheat imports continue to support regional market supplies. Prices continued to increase seasonally in many areas in May with the onset of the lean season. Current market anomalies remain largely concentrated in the eastern marketing basin, including but not limited to: conflict-related market disruptions in the Lake Chad basin, localized above-average grain deficits in Niger, and the impacts of the continued depreciation of the Naira. In East Africa, staple food supplies remain tight and prices well above-average in South Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen. Markets remain severely disrupted by insecurity in Yemen and South Sudan. Import capacity in Yemen is uncertain, and food availability will likely remain constrained in the coming months. Uganda and Kenya are also facing below-average staple food supply and above-average and increasing prices following poor harvests. In Southern Africa, regional maize availability continued to improve in May with the progression of harvests from the 2016/17 production season. Regional maize production prospects for the current season are good with record-high harvests anticipated in South Africa. Maize prices declined sharply in most areas in May, and were below their respective 2016 levels in many areas. The exceptions to these trends are in Zambia, where prices remain above average. Low regional maize prices encouraged exports to East Africa and beyond. In Central America, staple food availability continued to decline following the end of the recent Postrera harvest and Apante harvest. Maize and bean prices were seasonally stable or decreasing across the region, with varied trends compared to average levels. In Haiti, local maize prices were firm while local black beans prices saw a modest increase from their April levels. Imported rice prices were stable as the Haitian gourde appreciated marginally against the U.S. dollar. Higher transportation costs will continue to place upward pressures on staple food prices in the coming months. Central Asia sustained adequate supplies. Wheat prices remained stable in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan, but started to decline in Pakistan with the arrival of the new harvest. Rice prices in Pakistan increased following larger export demand, affecting also rice prices in Afghanistan. Intraregional trade is expected to fill staples’ deficits on importing countries. International staple food markets remain well supplied. Maize prices fell, soybean prices rose while rice and wheat prices were mixed. Crude oil prices fell and remain well below average.

          How To Train Your Dragon - 08 August 2011   
GLOBAL CREATURES AND DREAMWORKS BRING HIGH-FLYING FIRE-BREATHING DRAGONS TO LIFE IN THE "HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON ARENA SPECTACULAR" WORLD TOUR COMES TO NEW ZEALAND - APRIL 2012 Global Creatures, the technical masterminds behind the phenomenon “Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular”, and DreamWorks Theatricals are bringing high-flying, fire-breathing dragons to life in an unparalleled live entertainment event for a worldwide audience. The How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular is an epic arena adventure inspired by the Academy Award nominated DreamWorks Animation film, How to Train Your Dragon. The World tour of the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular comes to New Zealand in April 2012, followed by the North American tour in June. “In our film, audiences around the world were transported to the mythical world of Vikings and Dragons… and now, we are excited to immerse them in a one-of-a-kind live event in the How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, Chief Executive Officer of DreamWorks Animation. “The innovative team at Global Creatures and the creative storytellers at DreamWorks Animation have done an inspired job in every imaginable way to present this story on an unprecedented scale that will take audiences to unforgettable new heights. Global Creatures CEO, Carmen Pavlovic, explained “Working with DreamWorks has brought us into a relationship with one of the world's leading entertainment companies. The collaboration fuses our own world-class technology with the vision and dedication of a company renowned for its cutting-edge creativity and storytelling skill. We are excited to expand the boundaries of public expectation by creating a show that combines dynamic creatures, world class performers and incredible staging to not only thrill and intrigue, but to engage audiences on an emotional level as well." The live production is inspired by the phenomenally successful 2010 DreamWorks Animation film How To Train Your Dragon, which grossed approximately US $500 million at the worldwide box office and was among the best-reviewed movies of 2010. In the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular, audiences across the globe will have the unique opportunity to experience the world of How to Train Your Dragon in a one-of-a-kind, live theatrical event that promises to break every rule of traditional arena entertainment. In this state-of-the-art production, fire-breathing dragons will soar overhead, immersing audiences in a magical and mythical world of Vikings and Dragons. The astonishing cast of characters features 24 Dragons, some with wingspans of up to 14 metres, Viking warriors and villagers as well as world-class circus and acrobatic performers. The arena spectacular will feature unrivalled production values, projections, flying, stunts, circus performers, fire and pyrotechnics. In one of the largest theatrical arena productions ever to go on tour, the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular will require a phenomenal 40 semi-trailers to transport the production whilst on the road around the world. The How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular rolls fire-breathing action, epic adventure and laughs into a captivating and original story that is set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and is based on the book by Cressida Cowell. It centres on Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. The Dragons in the How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular have been created by Sonny Tilders and his team at The Creature Technology Company (Melbourne, Australia), whose previous work brought to life the stunning, lifelike dinosaurs in Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular. Included in the cast of 24 Dragons are reincarnations of all of the favourites from the DreamWorks Animation film: Nadder, Gronckle, Nightmare, Toothless - the Night Fury and Red Death, which is the single largest animatronic creature ever made by The Creature Technology Company. Creature Designer Tilders said “The How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular will incorporate everything we learned from "Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular" whilst taking the technology to a brand new level. Using state-of-the-art computer software, we are able to make these creatures perform in ways that we previously thought unimaginable. Utilising computer controlled flying systems we have created a show that inhabits the air above as well as the arena floor below.” The creative team features the World’s best and includes: highly acclaimed theatre director andwriter Nigel Jamieson, multiple award-winning Australian production designer Peter England, and leading theatre, film and opera designer Dan Potra amongst others. The stunning score features compositions from Icelandic singer-songwriter Jonsi from Sigur Ros and Oscar-nominated British film composer John Powell who created the original score for the Academy Award nominated feature film How to Train Your Dragon. The How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular is proudly presented in New Zealand by NZ Entertainment & Events Corporation Limited. NZEEC is New Zealand’s leading live entertainment company who recently brought “Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular” to unprecedented acclaim at Vector Arena. Bruce Mactaggart – the man who conceived the concept of “Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular” – the first global arena spectacular, is the Executive Chairman of NZEEC.

Possessing the largest wing-to-body ratio of all dragons, it can fly higher, faster and longer than any dragon. GRONCKLE The Gronkle is distinguished by its robust body and relatively tiny wings that can flap with tremendous velocity, endowing it with the ability to fly backwards or sideways. While attacking, the Gronkle smashes and crushes enemies with its extendable tail, or by using its head as a battering ram. NADDER Don’t be fooled, because the beautifully coloured Nadder is also extremely dangerous. It is flighty, aggressive, and has a quick and explosive temper, which is made all the worse by its preening vanity. NIGHTMARE The flagship of the dragon species, the Nightmare is the most visually terrifying and iconic of known dragon species. Its greatest weapon is a kerosene gel fire. THE VIKINGS: HICCUP It’s not easy being the brainy son of a brawny Viking Chief, but Hiccup is too smart to waste time feeling sorry for himself – he’s going to become a Viking warrior his own way. Unfortunately, in the crude world of Vikings, Hiccup’s sophisticated observations and wry sense of humour only serve to make him even more of an outsider. When Hiccup befriends his vicious enemy, an injured wild dragon, he begins an exhilarating and complicated double life. ASTRID Striking, energetic and tough, Astrid embodies the Viking way. Her competitive, determined persona makes her hard to impress, but Hiccup can’t help but be smitten. When Hiccup begins to show the strain of leading his secret double life, Astrid is the first to become suspicious. STOICK Stoick is the old-school chieftain of the brawny Viking tribe. A reluctant and confused parent at best, he doesn’t understand his clever son. Hoping to bring out the man in his boy, Stoick sends Hiccup into Dragon training, a dangerous test of battle strength. GOBBER Gruff, grump, and crass, Gobber is the seasoned warrior appointed to drill the new recruits. Gobber means well, but he’s full of bad advice, which he dispenses freely and comically.

With formal training in graphic design, he graduated from Swinburne University, Melbourne in 1988. Sonny worked the following 10 years at Australia’s foremost models and effects company, Mothers Art Productions, based in Melbourne. He left his Senior Project Management role in 1998 to pursue his interests in the specialized field of “animatronics”, the world of high-tech puppet making for film, television and theatre. Sonny’s work can be seen in US feature films such as Peter Pan, Ghostrider, The Chronicles of Narnia and Star Wars -The Revenge of the Sith. His television credits include the US science fiction series Farscape as Lead Animatronics Engineer. Working with the resources of the Jim Henson’s Creature Shop was an opportunity to develop his animatronics skills further and fuelled his passion for this niche industry. Although focusing on film and television, Sonny has also built puppets for Australian theatrical touring productions of The Hobbit and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. In late 2005 Sonny was approached to lead a workshop whose main focus was to design, engineer and build the animatronics dinosaurs for "Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular".

In 2010 he released and toured his first solo album 'Go'. Jónsi is now working on a sixth Sigur Rós studio album at home in Reykjavik. John Powell – Composer British-born composer John Powell’s list of film credits exemplifies his ability to transcend genre. Since moving to the United States 13 years ago, he has demonstrated his unique talent by scoring over 46 feature films, including Chicken Run, Shrek, Mr and Mrs Smith, United 93, X-Men: The Last Stand, P.S. I Love You, and Alfie with Dave Stewart and Mick Jagger. Powell’s ability to compose in a variety of genres stems from the wide array of styles present in his early musical studies. By the time he reached his late teens, he had already been exposed to soul, jazz, rock and world music as well as having a deep classical music background from the age of seven courtesy of his father, a musician in Sir Thomas Beecham’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London. In 1986, he began studies in Composition at London’s Trinity College of Music. During his time there, his skill was recognized with both the John Halford and the Boosey and Hawkes Bursary Music College Prizes. While at Trinity, Powell studied composition, percussion, electronic music, and experimented within the new medium of performance art. He joined the group Media Arts, and with longtime collaborator Gavin Greenaway, composed music and sound for the group’s performances. Although the group disbanded, Powell and Greenaway continued to create many mixed-media installation pieces with artist Michael Petry in the following years. Powell’s first foray into professional composing came soon thereafter, when he landed a job writing music for commercials and television at London's Air-Edel Music. There, he met other composers including other Air-Edel alumni, Hans Zimmer and Patrick Doyle. Later, with Greenaway, the two co-founded London-based commercial music house Independently Thinking Music (ITM), where they collaborated on more than 100 scores for commercials and independent films. Powell shifted his focus away from commercials to longer form composition with the opera “An Englishman, Irishman and Frenchman,” also co-created with Greenaway and Petry. Arriving in the States in 1997, he immediately scored two DreamWorks TV projects: the second season of Steven Spielberg's High Incident and the pilot For the People. He also arranged songs composed by Stephen Schwartz for DreamWorks' animated feature Prince of Egypt (1998). But it was Powell's hair-raising score for John Woo’s Nicolas Cage/John Travolta blockbuster Face/Off that garnered critical acclaim and catapulted him into the realm of A-list composers. Error!

          Everything you need to know about shark encounters   

sharkMark Royer/University of Hawaii

Many people are terrified of sharks, but when you look at the odds, those fears seem pretty silly.

The average number of people killed annually by sharks is estimated to be about six. (Roughly the same number die from heart disease every 12 seconds.)

"More people are killed by things like flower pots, lawn mowers, toaster ovens, deer, cows, and dogs each year," shark researcher David Shiffman told Smithsonian in 2013. "More people are bitten by other people than by sharks."

Of course, fear isn't rational — you don't see people giving toaster ovens the side-eye, and many other things that people are afraid of, including public speaking and spiders, are unlikely to harm you either.

Humans' fear of sharks, however, has done them a lot of harm.

The shark sport-fishing industry grew tremendously after the film "Jaws" was released in 1975. Soon after that, commercial fisheries started focusing on sharks, and a booming economy in Asia caused demand for shark fins to skyrocket. Shark populations around the world started to plummet, with more than a quarter of shark and ray species now at risk of extinction.

Many sharks are keystone ocean creatures — they're essential to the health of marine ecosystems, so you can't have a healthy ocean without them.

In order to reduce human-shark interactions while protecting sharks at the same time, researchers are using a variety of scientific experiments and common-sense strategies. Learning more about sharks may help us better coexist with them.

What to know when swimming

Education may not sound as sexy as a protective wall or suit, but it's the best way to limit interactions between sharks and people.

Shark bites (that's the term researchers prefer to "attacks," since it implies toothy curiosity, rather than aggressive intent) are extremely rare. But there are a few steps swimmers and surfers can take to make them even less frequent:

- Avoid areas that large sharks are known to frequent. You can't avoid sharks if you swim in the ocean — it's open water, after all. But more dangerous sharks are known to frequent certain beaches at specific times of the year. California surfers, for example, are more likely to encounter sharks in Mendocino County in October and November.

- Learn the times of day and parts of water where you're more likely to encounter sharks. Sharks are most active at twilight and in the dark, according to the University of Florida's Natural History Museum. They also like steep drop-offs and the areas in between sandbars.

- Steer clear of certain types of water. In very murky water, it's easier for a shark to mistake a person for something else. Researchers also recommend avoiding waters that are being used by fishermen, since the bait can attract sharks. Waters where there's sewage may also attract the animals (that's a gross place to swim anyway).

- Don't panic. Splashing and panicking if you see a shark is more likely to confuse it and make it think there may be a prey animal nearby. And don't try to grab or harass the animals in any way — people provoke bites by doing this.

- Be aware of the presence of other animals. If you see an area of the water with diving seabirds, that probably means there are plenty of fish to eat there. And that means there could be sharks, too. The National Parks Service also says the seal population off the coast of Cape Cod has started to attract white sharks — so don't swim near seals.

- Play in the ocean in groups. Whether you are swimming, kayaking, or diving, sharks are less likely to approach a group of people than a solo individual.

Ways to make beaches safer for swimmers

Oceanic Whitetip SharkWikimedia, CC / Thomas EhrenspergerThere's no evidence that killing off sharks (known as culling) makes an area safer for swimmers. But there are a few things that have made a difference:

- Changing the way humans dispose of garbage. Reunion Island, a popular resort territory off the coast of Madagascar, has seen a particularly high number of shark attacks. When researchers started to tag and track sharks there, they realized the animals were congregating where boaters and marina-goers dumped trash — right at the entrance to a populated beach.

People on Reunion Island have also experimented with walling off certain beaches with nets (while inspecting those nets to minimize the chances that turtles or other creatures get caught in them). Still, nets have been criticized for being ineffective and hazardous to marine life in other parts of the world.

Dronestagram user Tahitiflyshoot took this image called “Snorkeling with sharks” over the sparkling waters near Mo'orea island in French Polynesia. The sharks just happened to arrive at just the right moment for a beautiful snap. This image won first place in the category, Nature.tahitiflyshoot/Dronestagram

- Moving sharks away from popular beaches. A study in Recife, Brazil found that using specialized fishing gear to catch potentially dangerous sharks and release them (still alive) far away from swimmers and surfers led to a 97% decline in shark encounters.

- Using drones to spot sharks. Off the East Coast of the US, researchers are using drones to spot great whites that are looking for seals. While it's not yet clear whether this technology will be effective in the Atlantic's dark waters, it has proved successful in Australia and California.

- Setting sharks up with Twitter accounts. Western Australia has tagged more than 300 sharks with transmitters that sound out their location — and tweet if they get near a beach or surfing area.

- Installing a shark repellent cable that emits an electrical pulse. South Africa has tried putting a cable that emits an electric pulse along a section of seafloor between a beach and open ocean. Sharks can sense electrical fields, so theoretically the pulse would be strong enough to bother them (and drive them away from the area), but not strong enough to harm them. However, no sharks showed up at the beach where this device was being tested, so it's impossible to know how effective it is. There's also not enough evidence to say whether specially painted wet-suits and surfboards can deter sharks either.

Because the chances of a shark bite are so small, however, most of these innovations are not necessary for the average beachgoer. And remember, we kill 100 million sharks a year, 11,000 every hour. They have a lot more to fear from us than the other way around.

Ces médicaments entraînent des AVC et vont être interdits en France

Prenez soin de vous ......

Ces médicaments entraînent des AVC et seront interdits en France
Déjà lu cette info dans la revue « Que choisir ».

Essayez donc de retenir les noms de ces médicaments, et surtout de les éviter.

Depuis que l'on sait qu’ils sont dangereux, ne pensez-vous pas que les labos auraient dû être obligés de les rembourser, et les pharmaciens de les détruire ?

Mais non, Marisol Touraine leur conseille de liquider leurs stocks... pour ne rien perdre en C.A. et en bénéfice.

Du moment que cela rapporte, les professionnels de la Santé sont d’accord.
Ces médicaments entraînent des AVC mais seront interdits en France... une fois que le stock dans les pharmacies sera épuisé.

Merci de partager pour sauver des vies humaines.

N.D.L.R

J'ai longtemps utilisé moi même l'Actifed ou plutôt son générique Sudafed.

Je viens de découvrir en Crète un superbe défense contre le rhume, aussi efficace, sinon plus, et en tous cas parfaitement saine puisque composée uniquement d'huiles naturelles, le Cretan IAMA.

Je dois cette découverte encore une fois à mon adorable logeuse Antonia qui me l'a conseillée lors du départ d'un rhume, au retour de mon récent séjour à Madagascar. J'ai vraisemblablement attrapé cette saleté, comme d'habitude, dans l'avion ou dans un aéroport, nids à microbes et autres virus bien connus.

Avec une seule capsule molle d'IAMA, mon rhume a été bloqué immédiatement. Sans aucun effet collatéral !

S'agissant d'un produit conçu et fabriqué en Crète, vous ne le trouverez certainement pas en France. Mais vous pouvez les commander par Internet, à cette adresse :

Rainbow Moonstone Gemstone :-

Moonstone is a very personal stone. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which "is". Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it. This is a particularly good gemstone for women. It is a good stone for young women or teenagers.

Healing properties of Moonstone
Moonstone is used by healers to stimulate the functioning of the pineal gland and balance internal hormone cycles with nature's rhythms. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Though often considered to be a woman's stone, it can be beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.

Sources of moonstone
There are two moonstones. Adularia moonstone is an almost transparent pale gray or silvery white or blue shimmer. It is mainly found in Sri Lanka, Burma, India and Madagascar. Albie moonstone is in the feldspar group. It is semitransparent with a pale, shimmering reflection. It may be a little dull. It comes mainly from Canada.

          Re: MADAGASCAR   
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

We arrived just as the restaurant opened.  The first thing that struck us was the decor, which was very tasteful.  After we ordered our dishes, and in between courses, we often supplemented our conversation with comments about the color scheme, the lighting, and the very cool backlit wooden wall.

The menu wasn't massive, but each item sounded so interesting that it was very hard to make up our minds on what we wanted.   We ended up ordering two courses each.  Our waitress often checked up on us, and offered good advice on what to order.  After she collected our menus, she brought out a basket with bread.







The bread, which was with white flour, was accompanied by a farmer cheese spread.  The bread itself was very very good, with a soft, bubbly center surrounded by shock of crispy crust.  It was so warm and steamy that it must have been baked and sliced right before serving.
The farmer cheese spread we suspected to contain farmer cheese, called tvorog by russians, as well as heavy cream, and just the right amount of salt to go well with the bread.

I am not anywhere near baking with yeast well, but I seriously hope to learn to make a bread similar to this someday.





As we munched the bread, we could hear and smell our first courses being made.  I ordered the "Scallop Terrarium" ( I found it on the online menu, and its description says Butter baby potatoes, bacon jam, wheat grass, “dirt”), my father ordered a heart of palm salad, and my mother ordered the daily soup, which was a tomato-basil bisque with ricotta.  I could not find their dishes' formal titles or their descriptions on the online dinner menu.  
All three dishes were brought at the same time, and all were presented beautifully.  I didn't manage to photograph neither the palm heart salad nor the soup, but both were very well-crafted in terms of ingredients.  The soup was comforting, while the salad was tangy and was tastefully garnished with black caviar.
I was completely delighted with the scallop terrarium.  The major flavors were bacon, smoke, and the scallops' natural sweet taste.  The bowl you see was brought out covered in saran wrap, which was removed to let out a smokey-smelling fog from the bowl.  The edible "dirt" was nutty and sweet, but we could not discern the exact ingredients.  I strongly recommend this dish to anyone who likes bacon and adorable, creative dish presentation.


After our first course, we were feeling very full, and worried that we would not have space inside of us for any more food.  Thankfully, while the chefs prepared all of our foods fresh, we got to wait, digest, and enjoy each others' company.
For the main course, I ordered steamed buns with pork belly, cabbage, and fermented curry paste.  My mother ordered seared monkfish with lobster tortellini, and my father ordered a venison (poblano pepper, celery root, currant glaze, coffee grounds, arugula, venison reduction).  I did not manage to get photos of everyones' dishes, only the pork buns.
The dishes arrived just as we finished feeling completely stuffed, excellent timing.  The venison was very flavorful and not overcooked at all.  The monkfish, too, was cooked just right, and the lobster tortellini were large and had a good amount of stuffing.  The monkfish was garnished with bits of caviar, and both plates had very pretty sculptures of ingredients and sauces scattered around the meat.
As for the pork buns, I was completely blown away.  I have a large sweet tooth and my favorite dishes are normally sweet, but in this case, the best meal of the night for me were these pork buns.  The buns were made of baozi dough, and there were fresh greens placed atop a wonderful slice of pork belly.  I've never had pork belly before, but its smooth texture was so great that I must have it again.
I was unladylike and devoured the two buns using my hands.  I hotly recommend this dish to everyone who likes baozi and chinese spices.







After we finished our second course, we were incredibly happy with our meal and life in general.  The service in Cumin was very attentive.  Our table was cleared by a cheery gentleman, and the regional manager of Cumin and its sister pizzeria later came up and spoke to us.  He told us of his plans for remodeling the interior of the restaurant soon, including painting over this wall.
We will miss these paintings, but look forward to seeing how Cumin will look after being modernized some more.
The manager also explained to us that although Cumin used to be an Indian restaurant, it had switched its type of cuisine five years ago.  Cumin had kept its name to avoid losing regular customers, but also caused a lot of people to expect Indian food when they visited.  








After being enlightened about the restaurant's history (before speaking to the manager, my parents and I wondered whether Cumin was an avant garde Indian restaurant, or perhaps Native American?) we were presented with dessert menus.  Despite being very full, we decided to party it up and order desserts, too.
My mother ordered a raspberry clafoutis, my father ordered a root beer float made with vanilla gelato and a chocolate chip cookie, and I ordered a hot-cocoa Madagascar vanilla gelato dish.  The online dessert menu displays different foods than these, which means that the desserts must be rotated often.  Excellent.
The raspberry clafoutis had fantastic dough, it was a custard/cake hybrid.  The gelato served with it, although I don't recall the flavor, was light and fruity.  The clafoutis were garnished with toasted and sweet brazil nuts, whose earthy flavor was an unexpected and much needed accompaniment to the dessert.







My choice was also very good.  The hot cocoa sauce indeed tasted like hot cocoa: the chefs totally nailed the
mysterious element which makes hot cocoa different from chocolate.   The coffee whipped cream which garnished the sauce was subtly sweet.  The vanilla gelato was not too fatty, like ice cream would have been.
In a very sweet gesture, upon learning that my parents and I were celebrating my birthday, the cook staff put a candle in my ice cream!









My dad greatly enjoyed his root beer float.  Cumin managed to make this dessert fancy, with high quality root beer and excellent gelato.  I'm not sure whether this photo captured the cookie's size well, but it was genuinely massive, approximately 2cm tall and 10cm long.  It was great for sharing, with a texture similar to a dense scone.

Putting a pleasant end on our evening, as we left the restaurant, we noticed that a bird had made its nest in the center of Cumin's "m".  It looks charming, almost intentional, as it is very symmetrical placement.
In conclusion, we had a great time at Cumin, and will be returning again.  We must also check out the sister pizzeria, M Wood Fired Oven.

          Noahisms   

Noah says and does so many adorable/funny/crazy things right now, and I know I'll never be able to remember it all. Yesterday, while playing with Jonah, Noah got upset that Jonah had taken one toy that he must have really wanted to play with (even though he had like 40 other little characters on the table already) I said, "Noah, at least it's keeping your brother happy!" Noah said, "Yeah, but when will I be happy?" Oh brother! 

Noah will randomly burst into song..which isn't new, but at least now he mostly knows the right words to the songs and I can usually figure out what he's singing! Typically right now it's TobyMac, PowerRangers, or a Christmas song :) he loves to sing Jingle Bells!

He knows almost all of his alphabet by sight - He will be in preschool next year as his birthday falls after the date for kindergarten sign ups. 

He still loves playing with cars, action figures, and is currently loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! He also knows several older shows, thanks to his PaPa! This video shows him talking about "Marshall Dillon!"






Noah played soccer this fall for the Greenwood Boys and Girls Club. His team was coached by his daddy and they were the Bulldogs! He loved being with his new friends, Landon, Jaron, Gage and Trinity - but when it came to actually playing the game he really wasn't into it that much. Alone, he does great, but when the other kids steal the ball away from him, he just kinda shuts down and gets upset.. he spent a lot of time crying on the field, or sitting in my lap crying! He decided that he didn't want to do basketball yet, but wants to do T-ball again in the spring!


Noah LOVES TobyMac right now! For an early birthday present, Gama took him to see his first concert: TobyMac and Jamie Grace! He knows all of the songs on the Eye On It cd and loved singing along. He even got VIP backstage passes (thanks to my boss, Dr. Jennings!!) and got to attend a Q&A session with Toby!! When he got home late that night, he was so excited and kept saying that it was sooooo loud!!!


Noah is in love with his cousins, Taylor and Tinley! They are 7 months old now, and he loves to hold them, feed them, entertain them...he loves it when we go to Aunt CC's house and we say that he's in charge! We will watch him from the kitchen and listen to him sing to the girls and play with them. He loves to say "who's gotcha? Noah does!" A few days ago he even made up his own little game to play with them about a little sharkie coming to get them! LOL! I got it on video and Carah and I just cracked up!! He is so sweet with the girls and you can tell he just truly loves them so much! It has made him very excited about the prospect of having a sister!! He says all the time that he loves the baby, and if he's in trouble he tries to change the subject by saying "good baby!" and patting my tummy!!


Noah turned 4 years old on October 21 this year. He wanted a Samurai Power Ranger party! We had a lot of fun with all of his friends and family. We celebrated at Nana and Papa's house and the yellow Power Ranger, Emily - Noah's Favorite!! - showed up! Noah knew almost immediately that it was his aunt Jenny and when I asked him how he knew? "I knew by her words." Such a smart kid! Of course, knowing that it was her didn't stop him from getting a little shy/nervous and needing to hide behind me! The picture above really shows his sensitive side...I wiped some icing on my sister during a picture, so of course she retaliated, but with BLUE icing! Noah thought she was hurting me or something and came running up to me crying and trying to make sure I was okay! He has such a tender heart!

1. Noah at church with his new tie on..he was so proud! 2. Noah at a birthday party for our neighbor Jackson...he had to have a picture with the Madagascar afro! 3. Noah getting his teeth cleaned by Kristi at UAFS 4. Noah hamming it up in the dressing room at Old Navy

          Madagascar's youth speak up for lemurs   

The futures of Madagascar's youth and its lemurs are intertwined. In a country where 60% of the population is under 25, widespread poverty is driving unsustainable use of natural resources such as forests and wetlands. This is placing increased pressure on the country's unique biodiversity, including its 111 lemur species.

          Due centimetri per 25 metri: l'abitante della ragnatela più grande al mondo   
Mostri, dei veri e propri mostri. Si arrampicano sopra le cose, alla ricerca di cibo. Piccoli e operosi, perennemente attivi, gli occhi grandi quanto o addirittura più dello stesso cervello. Le manine simili a quelle di una scimmia, ma ancora più piccole, per afferrare tutto e conseguentemente, mangiare tutto. C'è un vero e proprio gremlin col dito medio particolarmente lungo, per meglio insinuarlo nei buchi degli alberi e ghermire le formiche. C'è n'è un altro che agisce in gruppo, spazzolando totalmente un territorio tra i 10 e 14 ettari comunitari. Agiscono di giorno. In altri casi, si muovono la notte. Pur non essendo delle vere e proprie creature onnivore, vista la loro preferenza endemica per frutti e radici, non c'è un solo lemure in tutto il Madagascar che disdegnerebbe di fagocitare un ragno ogni tanto, possibilmente completo di ragnatela e tutto quello che aveva catturato. Non c'è troppo da meravigliarsi, quindi, se nel parco naturale di Ranomafana esiste la tendenza evolutiva ad occupare nicchie ambientali del tutto nuove. Anche questo è un aspetto che deriva dalla biodiversità. Parlare del ragno della corteccia di Darwin, oggi, significa inevitabilmente approcciarsi agli svariati studi sull'argomento di Matjaz Gregoric, Matjaz Kuntner e colleghi, biologi di diverse istituzioni universitarie slovene, che nel 2009 hanno descritto scientificamente per primi un qualcosa che in effetti, era sempre stato lì, sospeso sopra i fiumi e i laghetti della quarta isola più grande al mondo. Scegliendo incidentalmente, in occasione del 150° anniversario dalla pubblicazione de L'origine delle specie da parte del naturalista più grande di tutti i tempi, di dare alla nuova creatura il suo nome già noto. Il Caerostris darwini, dunque, è questo ragno della lunghezza di 2 cm per la femmina, appena mezzo per il maschio, appartenente alla famiglia degli Araneidae, ovvero la stessa di tutti gli altri tessitori di tipiche ragnatele dalla forma...

Due centimetri per 25 metri: l
          Uff daa.   
So, up until a day ago, things were going pretty darn well in Chimundo.  I finished my first trimester of teaching, managed to write up 600 grades by hand, and participated in our week of conselhos, where we teachers wrote down our thousands of grades by hand in several more source documents.  It was about as fun as it sounds, but surprisingly wasn´t too awful.  Because of  conselhos, we teachers didn´t get a break, so last week, I jumped right into the second trimester, with a slightly better grasp of Portuguese and slightly better grasp of classroom management.  Slightly.
I´ve been living with my sitemate for the last month and a half, and since it´s been so pleasant to have company, electricity, someone to cook with, and someone to even do Pilates with, we agreed to continue living together permanently at her house.  We even bought a chicken together to have eggs.  But the morning after we decided this, I went back to my old house to begin organizing my belongings and found my front door ajar.  And my bedroom door ajar.  And most of my things gone.  Someone had entered my house that night, using a screwdriver to pry open the doors, and stole my suitcases, violin, and even a drawer from my bed.  Thankfully, my computer and good camera were already at my sitemate´s, and the thieves passed on most of my clothing, but when they lifted my suitcases, they got US dollars and my Peace Corps passport.  I´m sure those are long gone, but I wonder how much good they will get out of my two-year supply of contact lenses, my two-year supply of ivory-colored makeup, and my violin.  My guess is, not as much good as I´d get out of them.  Not nearly.
Oh, and our chicken ran away, adding insult to injury.
I´m sure the thieves broke in because they knew that even though I returned to the house every day before and after school, I wasn´t sleeping there.  I kick myself for not moving my things sooner, but hindsight is 20/20 (unfortunately, unlike my vision, when my one remaining pair of contact lenses dies on me).  People at the school were great, arranging a car for me to move my things to my sitemate´s house that day so the thieves wouldn´t return and lift anything else.  Other teachers have been very sympathetic and supportive, as have neighbors.  Replacing my Peace Corps passport shouldn´t be too difficult, and will get me a trip to Maputo, where I can also replace my internet phone (which unfortunately fell into the Indian ocean a month ago--I estimate it´s halfway to Madagascar by now) and try to replace some of my products.  And I´m going to start thinking about an insurance claim and replacing my stash of contact lenses.  I think disc 1 of Pride and Prejudice is a lost cause (sorry, Mom), but ah well.
Anyway, aside from the robbery, things are just fine.  Bea is doing well and sends greetings.  Hope you are well, too.

          Otra Copa con Jack Maxwell, tercera temporada en Food Network   
El próximo sábado, 1ro de Julio a las 10pm MEX, llega a Latinoamérica la tercera temporada del exitoso programa, “Otra Copa con Jack Maxwell”, y esta vez el recorrido incluye dos destinos latinoamericanos que sin duda tienen bebidas con un sello local muy distintivo: México y Colombia.

Su presentador, Jack Maxwell, tiene lo que muchos llamarían “el trabajo soñado”, pues se dedica a recorrer el mundo en busca de las bebidas alcohólicas que definen culturalmente a cada lugar y las historias que hay detrás de quienes las beben. Y es que ciertamente el licor forma parte importante de las tradiciones de los países, las regiones y su gente, y sus orígenes siempre nos permiten adquirir una perspectiva más profunda de sus pobladores.



En esta tercera entrega, Jack recorre Australia, Camboya, Siberia (Rusia), Corea del Sur, Croacia, Israel, Madagascar, Portugal, Miami y Mississippi -entre otros lugares de los Estados Unidos-, ¡México y Colombia!

El primer destino latinoamericano de Jack en esta tercera temporada – en el quinto episodio – será México, donde conocerá el verdadero significado de la inmortalidad mexicana cuando le venden los ojos, y lo suban a la parte trasera de un camión para degustar un mezcal ganador de varios premios, trabaje en los campos de agave donde se produce el tequila, y forme parte de una ancestral ceremonia azteca donde tendrá su primera cita con La Santa Muerte. Por si esto fuera poco, Jack pondrá a prueba sus habilidades llevando bebidas en una bandeja a toda velocidad, cuando participe en la carrera anual de meseros en Guadalajara. Más tarde, en el séptimo episodio, Jack viajará a Colombia, donde vivirá una experiencia igual de profunda, aleccionadora y apasionante, en la que visitará una aldea de la población indígena Wayuu gobernada por mujeres, descubrirá la verdad oculta de El Dorado, respirará la cultura del ron, y se desintoxicará en el “Volcán del Diablo”.

Brinda junto a Jack en estos y otros fascinantes destinos, en el estreno de la 3° temporada de “Otra Copa con Jack Maxwell”, el próximo sábado, 1ro de julio a las 10pm, a través de Food Network.




          ‘Scarcely more than a Christian trophy case’? The global collections of the London Missionary Society museum (1814–1910)   
<span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>The museum at the London Missionary Society headquarters has been studied largely by those with an interest in early Polynesian missionary encounters, and has become famous as a repository for pre-Christian religious ‘idols’ given up by converts to Christianity. However, the museum also contained material from Africa, China, India, Madagascar and the Americas. This paper demonstrates some of the ways in which collections from different areas of the world reflected particular histories of local missionary activity, but also came to influence missionary collecting practices in other regions of the globe. Rather than attempting to characterize missionary collecting as a single practice, this paper pays attention to the collections of a single missionary museum: it aims to suggest some of the ways in which motivations for collecting and the significance of collections for the London Missionary Society shifted over the course of the long nineteenth century.</span>

Rainbow Moonstone Gemstone :-

Moonstone is a very personal stone. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which "is". Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it. This is a particularly good gemstone for women. It is a good stone for young women or teenagers.

Healing properties of Moonstone
Moonstone is used by healers to stimulate the functioning of the pineal gland and balance internal hormone cycles with nature's rhythms. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Though often considered to be a woman's stone, it can be beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.

Sources of moonstone
There are two moonstones. Adularia moonstone is an almost transparent pale gray or silvery white or blue shimmer. It is mainly found in Sri Lanka, Burma, India and Madagascar. Albie moonstone is in the feldspar group. It is semitransparent with a pale, shimmering reflection. It may be a little dull. It comes mainly from Canada.
