Camp Counselor Assigning Kids To Horses Like Wise Town Matchmaker Presiding Over Marriage   

POLAND, ME—Studying the youngsters in front of the stable as if she alone possessed the insight into who belonged with whom, Rockbrook Camp counselor Melissa Burke, 19, reportedly assigned kids to horses in a beginner horseback riding class Thursday like a sage town matchmaker presiding over marriage arrangements. “Sarah, I think Nutmeg would be perfect for you—he’s a nice, kind horse,” said Burke, who skillfully paired the 11- and 12-year-olds with horses by character and temperament as if they were village sons and daughters for whom she was shrewdly brokering a wedding dowry. “Oh, and Alicia? You should be with Cookie. He’s a little anxious, but I bet you’ll be able to calm him down just fine.” At press time, Burke was guiding a shy camper toward a rambunctious horse named Shadow as though she were a naïve maiden being pressured into wedding the town ...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tahukah anda bahawa pelakon pujaan Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Cystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Willian Shatner, Jerry Lewis dan Peter Falk semuanya Yahudi? Tambahan lagi, Hollywood sendiri diwujudkan oleh orang Yahudi. Antara pengarah dan penerbit, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1- 2-3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief Of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) - semuanya adalah Yahudi.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mempengaruhi

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam kurang keupayaan untuk menghasilkan ilmu pengetahuan.

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

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

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam gagal menyalurkan ilmu pengetahuan.

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

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

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

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

The prototype Bf109a first flew in 1935. The later E model was more powerful and better armed and by the summer of 1940, over 500 were in service for the offensive against Great Britain. By this time, the 109E had already proved to be a competent, if not the world's best, fighter aircraft in the skies above Poland, France and the low countries. It met its match over England where it was shown to be inferior to the RAF's Spitfire.

          Fragments of Thutmose I Temple Discovered in Storage   
  LUXOR, EGYPT—Thousands of stone blocks being kept in storage near Luxor turn out to be remains of the temple of the 18th-Dynasty pharaoh Thutmose I (r. ca. 1504-1492 B.C.), according to a report from Science & Scholarship in Poland. Egyptologist Jadwiga Iwaszczuk of the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences first identified some of the fragments, which were housed in a tomb that is used as a storage facility by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. The fragments were excavated in the 1970s, and at the time were thought to belong to a temple built during the reign of Hatshepsut, who was Thutmose I’s daughter. In fact, that temple was discovered in recent years in the Ramesseum, the memorial temple of Ramesses II. Iwaszczuk identified the fragments as belonging to the temple of Thutmose I because the temple’s name appeared on some of them. Iwaszczuk and her team have now identified thousands of stone blocks that are part of the temple. Among their notable finds is an early portrayal, for the area, of a battle scene featuring chariots.

          Neolithic Figurine Found in Polish Village    
RZESZOW, POLAND—While while on vacation in the village of Kosina in southeastern Poland, an archaeologist stumbled upon a clay figurine that he believes dates back to around 5000 B.C. Science and Scholarship in Poland reports that Piotr Alagierski was walking in a cultivated field when he came across the nearly 3-inch-long clay figure that appears to have been made by some of the first farming communities in the region. According to Alagierski, the figurine is reminiscent of similar artifacts found in Slovakia and Romania but differs from known Polish examples in its lifelike rather than exaggerated depicition of the human form. Alagierski plans to conduct excavations at the site, where he also found fragments of ceramic vessels and obsidian, and the object will undergo chemical tests that may help to determine the origin of the clay.

          The Polish example   
This speech in Poland by the God-Emperor sounds promising.
President Trump will ask other European nations to “take inspiration” from Poland, which has rejected refugee resettlement, in a speech later this week.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters Thursday that President Trump will deliver a speech in Warsaw’s Krasinski Square, which symbolizes Polish heroism. He is flying to Poland next Wednesday and stopping there before he attends the G20 summit in Hamburg.

McMaster said that Trump will deliver a “major speech” in which he will “praise Polish courage” and its “emergence as a European power.” The nation is currently ruled by a nationalist Christian party that has rejected refugee resettlement and mass immigration.
Of course, the President's message would be more meaningful if he would follow the Polish example and reject refugee resettlement and mass immigration in the USA too.

The Czech example isn't bad either:
The Czech parliament is working to liberalize the country’s gun laws, allowing people to better defend themselves. The reason for this new policy is safety, as well as practicality; in light of recent attacks in neighboring countries, the Czech government recognizes that disarming people puts them in danger, and that broad European gun control policies are ineffective. The Interior Minister said it best when he asked parliament to “show [him] a single terrorist attack in Europe perpetrated using a legally-owned weapon”.

It's an unsung region in the heart of Europe, but Poland's Lower Silesia is packed with natural wonders, historic cities, splendid palaces and unsolved mysteries.

          Black magic, white lies and Germany in two finals – Football Weekly Extra   

The podders muse on the ever-mighty Germans. Plus, the Garcia report, the Portuguese witch doctor scandal and Sunderland finally appointing a manager

On the penultimate Football Weekly of the close season, AC Jimbo is joined by Paolo Bandini, James Horncastle and Iain Macintosh to get well and truly jazzed about this magical summer of football.

We begin by discussing Germany who stand on the brink of conquering both Poland and Russia (careful), having knocked England out of the U21 Euroson penalties, of course – and swatting aside Mexico in the Confederations Cup. A Saúl-inspired Spain will provide stiff opposition in the Euros, while they’ll have to get past Chile and Claudio Bravo in the Confeds final on Sunday night. Would you bet against them?

          3 nowe piosenki do zaśpiewania!   

Zapraszamy do zaśpiewania nowości - w tym tygodniu przygotowaliśmy dla Was najnowszą piosenkę Sarsy, nowy singiel Sound'n'Grace z gościnnym udziałem Filipa Lato oraz zupełnie nowy podkład muzyczny do jednej z najpopularniejszych piosenek zespołu Łzy.

Nowe

Piosenka z najnowszej płyty Sarsy, która znalazła się jednocześnie na ścieżce dźwiękowej komedii w reżyserii Juliusza Machulskiego zatytułowanej „Volta". Sama artystka tak oto opisuje kulisy powstania utworu: „Po spotkaniu z reżyserem przearanżowałam gotowy utwór, żeby był na pełnej petardzie. Pan Machulski szukał kogoś, kto będzie pasował do fabuły, gdzie kobity są silne. To ogromne dla mnie wyróżnienie".

Nowe

Pierwszy utwór zapowiadający nowe wydawnictwo Sound’n’Grace. Tym razem muzycy zaprosili do współpracy Filipa Lato, artystę, który dał się bliżej poznać jako uczestnik The Voice of Poland. Tekst utworu napisała Patrycja Kosiarkiewicz, która tak skomentowała piosenkę: „Chcieliśmy, by była pozytywna i by motywowała do zmiany, do cieszenia się z małych rzeczy i ustalenia właściwych priorytetów".



Dla osób bez iSing Plusa dostępne stały się piosenki, które dodaliśmy dwa tygodnie temu, a wśród utwór z najnowszej płyty Morza pt. Szerokie Wody.

W Popnutach do zaśpiewania znajdziecie 5 nowości:



Zapraszamy do śpiewania oraz do zagrania w Popnuty :)

The Jury on the beach!

17 Awards for an Eclectic Selection    

The different juries from the 41st International Animation Film Festival have revealed the winners from Annecy 2017! Amongst the 216 films nominated in the official competition (all categories combined), 17 awards were attributed during the Closing Ceremony on Saturday 17th June.

       

HONORARY CRISTAL

Marcel Jean handed over the Honorary Cristal to Georges Schwizgebel to commemorate his prolific career.

"For the fifth year in a row, the Annecy Festival awarded the Honorary Cristal to a leading figure in the animation world. This year, it’s not only an exceptional filmmaker that we’ve crowned, but a friend as well. The Swiss director Georges Schwizgebel has had his films in competition at the Annecy Festival fourteen times. Georges has been a member of the jury at the Festival twice and two of his shorts, The Ride to the Abyss and 78 Turns, are included in the list of the 100 best animation films that we published in 2006.

Georges Schwizgebel is an animation guru, an artisan of precision and an artist who has inspired many young animators. His style can be described as baroque and swirling, characterised by a confident brushstroke and a resolutely postmodern approach with his relationship to history and art.” Marcel Jean

His film Erlking was screened as his son Louis Schwizgebel-Wang played the piano.

          Europe forecast: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, Jun 30 - 05:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.


          Re: BDS France disrupts Israel’s Elbit Systems exhibition at Paris Air Show   

Typical!

I speak to you politely and put some challenging questions to you and you reply with a torrent of insults. However, I am not easily intimidated.

Mondoweiss is NOT independent so let's not go there.

The Ashkenazi are not converted Jews. I asked you to prove to me that the Ashkenazi were converts and you failed to provide any evidence. Here is the background to the Ashkenazi Jews that you can share with Mondoweiis.

After the destruction of the second temple, 70 ACE, many Jews left Jerusalem to seek their futures in another lands. By 136 ACE the failed rebellion by the Maccabees resulted in the re-naming of Judea Sumera and Israel to Syria-Palestina (Greek Philistina). By 490 ACE the Roman empire was finished. The routes of the migrating Jews from the crumbling Roman Empire was NW in to France and Germany and NE to the Ukraine.

The Jews that settled in NE Germany were called Ashkenazim. The name Ashkenaz comes from the book of Genesis. They thrived until the introduction of the guilds where no Jew was allowed to be a member. At this point Poland was becoming a developing realm. The Jews were invited in to Poland. The rest is history.

During the Middle Ages, it was not uncommon for Jews and non-Jews to marry each other. Conversions occurred on both sides, but not on a notable scale. Many Jewish communities throughout Europe remained close knit.

Forget Khazaria. That period only lasted 200 years and only affected the people of the Caucases.

The other Jews of the diaspora, including my lineage, went via Baghdad to Central Asia. Persia Mesopotamia and surrounding Arab lands. Like the Jews of the west, they stayed in close knit communities and yes there were conversions especially by the Emirs, but nothing on a grand scale.

Ashkenazi or Sephardi is irrelevant. One either has a Jewish soul and is believes in a Jewish homeland, or not.


          Graphic: Emerging markets enjoy vintage start to year   

By Marc Jones

LONDON (Reuters) - Emerging markets have had one of their best first halves to a year on record, with stocks up 17.5 percent and a 15 percent surge by Mexico's peso underscoring how worries about U.S. President Donald Trump's policies have been forgotten for now.

As this graphic - http://tmsnrt.rs/2hn5N02 - shows, Poland has been the star performer for stocks trackers, with a 34 percent rise in dollar terms thanks to strong growth numbers and a more than 12 percent rise in the zloty.

Central and eastern Europe has been a hotspot all round.

The Czech crown is up over 11 percent versus the dollar, Hungary's forint is up 8 percent despite an uber-dovish central bank and Romania's leu, in a country which has just had a political crisis, is up 7.7 percent. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2hniYya)

Mexican, Indian, Chinese, and Turkish stocks have taken off, climbing somewhere between 20 and 30 percent.

The boom has come as investors have shrugged off the U.S. rate rises, oil and tech tumbles and looked to the positives.

The dollar has just had its worst quarter in almost seven years which means EM currencies are up. Global growth is gaining traction and borrowing costs via bond yields had been steadily sliding again until this week.

As well as flying equities, bonds in local emerging market currencies have returned almost 11 percent in dollar terms, while hard currency sovereign debt is up over 6 percent. (For the breakdown click here http://tmsnrt.rs/2ih2QQ9)

There are always laggards though.

Russian equities, heavily oil-reliant and a star of late 2016, have lost 15 percent and the rift between Qatar and its Middle East neighbours has seen its stocks clobbered 12 percent in a matter of weeks.

Though there has been a rebound this week, Brazil's real has been a poor performer. It is down over 1 percent due to fresh corruption scandals that have hit the country.

Another one to avoid has been the Philippine peso which is down 1.7 percent on fears that Islamic State, on the backfoot in Iraq and Syria, is trying to set up a stronghold in the Muslim south of the country.

          Graphics: Stocks fly in first half but oil and dollar big losers   

LONDON (Reuters) - World stocks were on track for their best start to a year since 2003 while oil and the dollar were facing their biggest first-half drop for years.

The early months of 2017 were marked by the so-called Trump trades premised on U.S. President Donald Trump's pledges of multi-trillion dollar spending and by a change in Europe's political and growth outlook that has lured back investors.

But arguably the most significant shift for investors came in the last week of the second quarter when, in what looked like a concerted move, central bank policymakers appeared to signal it would soon be time to wind back the monetary stimulus that has buoyed markets for much of this decade.

As this graphic http://reut.rs/2sxO66c shows the dollar index, already down 4.5 percent for 2017 a week ago, was down 6.5 percent at Thursday's close and on track for its worst quarter in seven years and worst first half since 2003.

This despite the U.S. Federal Reserve raising interest rates twice this year.

The euro, boosted by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi hinting on Wednesday at tweaks to the bank's ultra-loose monetary policy stance, is up more than 8 percent year-to-date and heading for its best quarter in seven.

Dollar weakness has helped lift emerging equities, as measured by MSCI's main index almost 18 percent in dollar terms so far this year.

World stocks have gained more than 10 percent in dollar terms, their best first half since 2003.

Japan's Nikkei 225 stock index gained 9.6 percent, just ahead of the S&P 500 on 9.2 percent.

Stuck at the bottom of the performance league table, down 16.5 percent in dollar terms year-to-date is Brent crude oil, hit by a perception that output cuts agreed by OPEC producers and others will not be enough to stem the glut of oil.

It was on track for its worst first six months of any year since 1998.

In Brexit-bound Britain, which has just been through a messy election, the pound has dropped 3 percent against the euro. The weaker currency has been a boost for exporters, lifting the country's main FTSE 100 stock index 8.2 percent.

Emerging markets have shrugged off the U.S. rate rises and the oil and tech tumbles. Bonds in emerging market currencies have returned almost 10 percent in dollar terms, while hard currency sovereign debt is up 6 percent.

But within emerging markets there are losers as well as winners. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2dZbdP5)

Russian equities, heavily oil-reliant and a star of late 2016, have lost 17 percent but energy importer Turkey's stock index has risen 30 percent, despite inflation, domestic political risks and policy wobbles.

The Mexican peso is the world's top performing currency, up 15 percent on the dollar, as faith wanes in Trump's ability to implement anti-trade and anti-immigration pledges. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2egbfVh)

Perhaps the biggest surprise has been Poland's zloty which has surged 13 percent against the dollar.

Brazil's real has been one of the worst-performing currencies, down 4 percent in 2017 due to fresh corruption scandals that have hit the country.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Officially, GAIL has declined comment on the row.

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

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

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

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

GAIL UNDER PRESSURE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          ▂ ▃ ▅ ▆ ▇ ▉ KILL da CHILL! BASS BOX Edition ▉ ▇ ▆ ▅ ▃ ▂   

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED :((((

The guys from Poznań's crew of KILL da CHILL announce helluva party this Friday (22 June 2012) in Stara Rzeźnia (Old Slaughterhouse!) in Poznań. On two scenes Street Bass vs Heart Beats, sick dubstep sub-basses (with occasional wobbles) will meet glitchey IDM nu beatz footwork what u call it funk. A bass champion Trolley Snatcha representing UK's cult label Dub Police will headline the Street Bass stage showing his top-notch DJ skills and very distinctive beat, which is a kind of trademark of his music explorations. Who knows he may even show some surprises :) He will be supported by Polish artists Blackleg hailing from the holy city of Częstochowa, Grabadub one of the founding fathers of dubstep scene in Poland, and the Foxhole crew (the organizers of the event) represented by Paszczak, Julian De Narco and Petey. 

However, the real treat awaits on the other scene. Heart Beats will feature two producers who bravely stand out with their music from the mass of mediocre copy-cats flooding the nu-beat / bass / urban scene. I hope Slugabed  requires no introduction to the readers. I have been his devout fan since the beginnings of my blog a few years ago. Though young of age, Sluga has already managed to create his unique sound of post hip-hop beats built on ulta heavy bass base. After a few successful releases (among others on Planet Mu) he has recently added to his CV a very good full-length album on Ninja Tune. This dude knows how to rock the house in its most literal sense. Be There or Be Square!!! The more so, as he will be joined by B.Bravo, another hot name on my best producers list (don't confuse hot with overhyped please). Born in California, up-and-coming star of the West Coast Modern Funk Movement is also a co-founder (with Salva) of one of my favorite labels - Frite Nite releasing music by e.g. Nasty Nasty, Eprom or Epcot. Expect G-Funk and R'n'B arranged in a surprisingly modern way, with distorted vocoder samples and twisted beats. Actually, I can't wait to lay my hands and ears on the LP by B.Bravo to be released this year. I'm absolutely positive Slugabed and B.Bravo will f.....g funk you out till you bleed in the Old Slaughterhouse :) The young butchers will be supported by Polish artists, incl. Minoo a collaborator of an interesting label Mad-Hop and Polish Asfalt Records and the Foxhole crew represented by RAQ, Porcus Uzurpator and Top Cut.

          Eventing flashback: Poland's proud history revealed on eve of European Champs   
Poland is preparing to host the 33rd European Eventing Championships for the first time next month at Strzegom. Not since 1965 has a rider from Poland has stood atop the podium, but the country is proud of its history in eventing at the top level.
          Keeping a Promise to the Polish People   

President Trump has a chance to set things right with America's most faithful ally.

 

It's unsurprising that the White House recently scheduled a presidential visit to Poland in conjunction with the upcoming G-20 Summit. The U.S. State Department describes this Central European country of 38.6 million people as a stalwart ally and "one of the United States' strongest partners on the continent in fostering transatlantic security and prosperity regionally, throughout Europe, and the world."

What is surprising is that, despite historical ties dating back to the American Revolutionary War, the strong alliance, and a robust domestic Polish-American population of about 10 million, the U.S. government hasn't found a way to treat Polish citizens the same way as it does those living in most other European countries when it comes to visiting the United States. Since it shed communism in 1989 after 42 years of domination and became a free and democratic state, Poland has unsuccessfully tried to gain entry into the U.S. Visa Waiver Program.

The U.S. failure to grant VWP status to Poland is an embarrassment to many Americans as well as a major disappointment and irritant to Poles and a succession of its leaders. Poland's former president and Nobel Laureate Lech Walesa described VWP entry as a "matter of honor" for Poland.

In a speech before the Polish American Congress in September 2016, Candidate Trump promised to remedy this problem by making it possible for Poland to become part of the VWP. His promise echoes that of his presidential predecessor, Barack Obama, who promised to do the same several years earlier but didn't deliver. Several previous attempts by U.S. Congress members to legislate a fix to bring Poland into the program have also failed. Congress is now considering The Poland Waiver Act of 2017 (H.R. 2388).

What is the VWP? The U.S. established the VWP in 1986 primarily to facilitate commerce and tourism between friendly nations. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security administers the program in consultation with the State Department. Since its inception, the program has evolved into a security partnership with special passport and security upgrades to detect and prevent terrorists, criminals, and other mala fide actors from entering each country. There are presently 38 countries in VWP, 29 of them European. The program features reciprocal agreements allowing citizens to travel on business or pleasure without visas and no application fees between member countries for up to 90 days.

What has Poland done to gain VWP entry? Three important ingredients for gaining VWP status are national wealth, a high Human Development Index, and a low-security risk. Poland scores well on each count. It has seen its economy dramatically grow to 25th in the world at $1.1 trillion. The 2017 United Nations Development Report classified Poland as a "very high" Human Development Index country with its 78 years average life expectancy, 99.8 percent literacy rate for males and females, and $27,700 plus average annual income. And with its strong American ties, NATO membership, participation in the Afghanistan and Iraq military coalitions, and the general absence of radical Islamic terror attacks on its soil Poland clearly isn't a security threat. Moreover, it has implemented and adopted VWP-related security measures and information-sharing protocols asked of them by the U.S. government.

What is preventing Poland's VWP entry? A provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act which requires a visa refusal rate of 3 percent or less to qualify for the program - and Poland's FY 2016 visa refusal rate according to the State Department is 5.7 percent, which although is a dramatic drop from previous years still doesn't pass the congressionally-mandated program muster. The State Department reported that 186,555 Polish citizens applied for nonimmigrant visas to visit the U.S. for business or pleasure. Each paid a non-fundable fee of $160. Of the applicants, U.S. consular officers refused to approve visas for 10,060 of them.

However, using the visa refusal rate alone to exclude a country from the program can be somewhat misleading. For example, the prime concern for U.S. immigration officials is not necessarily the percentage of visa refusals by U.S. consular officers, but the actual number of nonimmigrants from VWP and other countries who overstay their 90-day visit. DHS's FY 2016 Overstay Report reveals that VWP members United Kingdom had 20,670 suspected overstays; Germany had 18,780; Italy had 14,896; Spain had 11,716; and France had 10,358 compared to non-VWP Poland's 2,787 suspected overstays!

President Trump can take the following actions to facilitate Poland's VWP entry and/or make it easier for Polish citizens to visit the United States. One, he can urge Congress to pass the Poland Waiver Act of 2017; two, he can ask the DHS and State Department secretaries to determine the reasons why Poles are being refused visas at a greater percentage than INA requires and to determine if any legal and administrative remedies are available for Poland to achieve a lower rate; and three, ask the Secretary of State to determine if the $160 visa application fee for Polish citizens can be legally waived - as it has been for VWP member countries and like the Polish government has already done for U.S. citizens traveling to Poland.

One is hard-pressed to find a better friend and more loyal U.S. ally than Poland. For that reason, President Trump should keep his promise and use his leadership ability and/or executive power to ensure this matter doesn't languish in the Federal bureaucracy or Congress any longer. Making it easier for the Poland's citizens to visit the U.S. on business and pleasure would further cement the bilateral relationship and surely please millions of them and their American cousins.

“From the evidence so far, it’s clear that Trump and his top advisers are trying to pull off a domestic shock doctrine. The goal is all-out war on the public sphere and the public interest, whether in the form of antipollution regulations or programmes for the hungry. In their place will be unfettered power and freedom for corporations. It’s a programme so defiantly unjust and so manifestly corrupt that it can only be pulled off with the assistance of divide-and-conquer racial and sexual politics, as well as a nonstop spectacle of media distractions. And, of course, it is being backed up with a massive increase in war spending, and a dramatic escalation of military conflicts on multiple fronts.”

-

Naomi Klein

Though Trump breaks the mould in some ways, his shock tactics do follow a script, one familiar from other countries that have had rapid changes imposed under the cover of crisis. During Trump’s first week in office, when he was signing that tsunami of executive orders and people were just reeling, madly trying to keep up, I found myself thinking about the human rights advocate Halina Bortnowska’s description of Poland’s experience when the US imposed economic shock therapy on her country in the midst of communism’s collapse. She described the velocity of change her country was going through as “the difference between dog years and human years” and she observed that “you start witnessing these semi-psychotic reactions. You can no longer expect people to act in their own best interests when they’re so disoriented they don’t know – or no longer care – what those interests are.”

          Shameless Self Promotion   

I was just informed that the panel on which I was invited to present has been accepted for the Society for Pyschological Anthropology Biennial Meeting. The panel is organized by Jonathan Marion and is titled, "Re-Embodying Identity." Here is the panel abstract:


    Re-Embodying Identity


    Working out of a variety of approaches and models, this panel is geared towards exploring and understanding the interactivity of body and identity. While a number of scholars have started to look to the body as a site of culture, the interconnection of body and identity still remains largely under appreciated. Building off the idea that practice and activity can be valuable sites for anthropological inquiry, this panel focuses on and interrogates the significance of bodily experiences and conceptualizations to understanding the constructions of both personal and collective meanings and identities.


    This panel’s use of the term re-embodiment is not to suggest that people are somehow otherwise not embodied, disembodied, or alienated from their bodies. All physical practices, such as sitting at the computer, are, of course, embodied, as, ultimately, are all thoughts about such activities. Similarly, it would be inaccurate to assume that someone at their computer feels some sense of bodily alienation; i.e. as if somehow their body is not their’s. That people typically take little notice of their bodies (on a day-to-day basis) save when something goes wrong does not mean, however, that bodily experience and perception otherwise cease to be significant in constructions and understandings of personal and collective identities; and it is against this backdrop that this panel engages with re-embodiment, wherein and whereby awareness of and attention to the body can be re-engaged. Borrowing from different traditions across the social sciences, the papers on this panel—dealing with modern body piercing, Brazilian squatting, Polish Evangelicals, competitive ballroom dance, and embodied conflict—each explore some practices and beliefs wherein and whereby personal and collective identities are re-embodied. Rather than answering any questions, this panel is intended as a step in theorizing, conducting research on, and then re-theorizing the significance of re-embodying identity.

    Body Piercing and the Re-Embodiment of Commodity-Based Identity


    Commodity-based identity is a significant part of today's consumer culture society. Some scholars view this reliance on commodities as limiting the power of the individual. However, this study focuses on the activity of body piercing to argue that individuals exercise authority as they utilize commodities to create bodily-centered identity. In the community of college-age individuals, body piercing has emerged as an important commodity used to express personal and communal identity. This project draws upon first-hand ethnographic research and existing theoretical analysis in Anthropology and other Social Science disciplines to argue that body piercing represents the re-embodiment of commodity-based identity.


    In this study, the practice of body piercing in the college-age community is analyzed in relation to traditional rites of passage with which it shares undeniable similarities. When children become distanced from their parents, as in the case of 'going away to college,' they enter a new stage in life; they may then undergo a crisis of identity when the structure on which they based their identity, their family unit, is replaced by a community of their peers. This crisis often occurs in conjunction with the crisis of bodily detachment which arises in part from the practice of commodity-based identity. However, in this case, body piercing as a form of commodity-based identity intercedes as a way to reconcile these crises of identity and claim, or reclaim, bodily-centered identity through the activity of body piercing.

    Embodied Identity and Political Action:


    Lessons from the Participatory Budget in Brazil


    A focus on identity in activity is fundamental to understanding how squatters’ perceptions of their social positioning shifts based on the new set of social relations that emerged with the implementation of the Participatory Budget, a municipal mechanism of resource allocation. The evidence comes from fieldwork conducted in Porto Alegre during January and February of 2005 for my master’s thesis in Urban Planning. When squatters perceived that their social positioning changed under the local social relations of power, they also changed their actions by advocating for their rights. The leftist progressive pioneers of the Participatory Budget envisioned political participation in terms of citizen’s rights, independent of land tenure status. Nonetheless, outside of this particular political narrative, legal title is an important index of citizenship rights. Lawful tenants, incapable of preventing squatters from placing their demands through the Participatory Budget, began to treat squatters as political brokers between themselves and the city administration. The meaning of political participation changed from a political right, as initially envisioned by the framers of the Participatory Budget, to a political responsibility of the squatters. I use the theoretical framework established by D. Holland, D. Skinner, W. Lachicotte, and C. Cain in Identity and Agency in Cultural Worlds in order to understand this dialectical relationship between narrative/figured worlds and positional identities. Even though embodied political identity is mostly unconscious, the index of legal title becomes a conscious aspect of squatters’ positional identity. In the figured world of the Participatory Budget, this change in squatters’ positional identity enables them to refuse to act as political brokers for the lawful tenants.

    The Body’s Religious Sentiments:


    Identity and Bodily Practice Among Polish Evangelicals


    This paper examines the relationship between identity and the body in an evangelical community in Poland. Drawing on two years of field research in a Polish Baptist community, I suggest that communal ideas about what the body is, what it does, and what it should do, are central to communal and individual religious identity. In exploring these models of the body, I argue that it is the body’s perceived objectivity and transparency—its capacity to give inner states a physical form—which explains the import that ascetic practices carry in the community. A żywa wiara (living faith) is viewed within the community as irrepressible; real emotions, states, and qualities are made visible by the body and through bodily practice; piety, honesty, humility and obedience are thus embodied. I posit that such beliefs about the body are important due to the general suspicion of speech and sentiment present in the community. Statements of faith, claims of religious feeling, and internal spiritual experience are treated with a measure of distrust by the community, as if lacking the objective grounding the body is seen to provide. I explore how the privileging of the body as a source of objective knowledge about faith and sentiments has significant consequences for identity formation within the community. For example, in the development of ideas about proper Baptist bodily practice, in the necessity of communal evaluation of each believer’s body, and in the manner that evaluative models become motivating for individuals.

    Being Ballroom:


    Some Observations on the Re-embodying of Identity in Ballroom Dance


    This paper explores some of the dynamics of ballroom dance that allow for and facilitate the re-embodying of practitioners identities. Just as the body is inescapably implicated in human culture and knowledge, the converse is also true. While never separate from physical bodies, views of the body are always contextually construed, inevitably arising in the dialogue between the physicality of bodies and the values and understandings—both personal and cultural—by and through which those bodies are attended. Physical mannerisms, practices, and proxemics (e.g. Levy 1973, Bourdieu 1977, and Hall 1988 respectively) are integral elements of sociocultural discourse, as are the conceptualizations that are formulated out of and in response to these discourses. Uses and understandings of the body thus emerge as never being only natural and, as such, any robust understanding of humans cannot ignore the psychophysicality of human experience and conceptuality.


    Like other physical pastimes, ballroom dance allows people to consciously reconnect with their physicality. But dance and other expressive movement styles often go further, allowing people to experience, experiment with, and use their bodies in non-instrumental manners. This paper thus explores some of the dynamics whereby and wherein persons not only come to be aware of their bodies in and through ballroom dance but, specifically, of their bodies in interaction with others. And, as this paper will argue, while any type of physicality may help, partnered dance forms are especially efficacious in facilitating the very re-embodiment that modern modes of work, transportation, leisure, and home life may make all the harder—and thus all the more valuable—to attain.

Becoming Palladin:

Embodied Narratives, Conflicts, and Identities


The themes in this paper derive from the view that we develop meanings and values through embodied interaction with the cultural worlds to which we belong. Patterns of movement, gesture, feeling, expression, and thought are all embodied, and the development of these embodied patterns occurs in communities of participation. Because bodily identities symbolize aspects of our participation, it becomes important to look at them clinically.

Developmentally, we imitate, practice, and improvise with other people's gestures and movements and excitatory expressions, both in and out of the family of origin. We are, moreover, influenced by a broad range of media and multicultural images. These practices are automated and become part of one's identity either as whole set pieces or as partial incorporations. We live various bodies as we go through our daily worlds, both consciously and unconsciously, and these enactments may be in conflict or harmony with each other.

In this paper patterns of imitation will be looked at as means to the individuals embodied identity. Psychological conflict will be seen as the conflict between embodied enactments that symbolize and evoke particular cultural and familial values and meanings. Implications for psychotherapy will be discussed.

          25 tricky job-interview questions the best companies in America are asking   

Mark Zuckerberg question mark

With excellent perks, great pay and benefits, and high job satisfaction, employees at the 50 best companies to work for in America seem to have a good thing going.

But before you start seething with envy, you should see some of the questions they had to answer to get there.

To find these difficult and sometimes odd queries, Business Insider sifted through hundreds of reviews on Glassdoor submitted by people who recently interviewed at these top companies.

And although Google officially did away with its notoriously difficult brainteasers years ago, a few interviewers at Google and plenty more at other companies continue to carry the torch.

If you're thinking of tossing your hat in the ring, be sure to prepare yourself for some real head-scratchers:

'How many pianos are in Poland?' —Boston Consulting Group intern candidate



'If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?' —Google associate account-strategist candidate



'How many Big Macs does McDonald's sell each year in the US?' —Facebook data-scientist candidate

          Một người Mỹ tại Paris

Donald Trump sẽ đến Paris vào ngày 14/07/2017 theo lời mời của Emmanuel Macron nhân Quốc Khánh Pháp. Nhiều đơn vị Mỹ sẽ diễn hành cùng với quân nhân Pháp trên đại lộ Champs Elysées ghi dấu 100 năm ngày Hoa Kỳ tham dự Thế Chiến Thứ Nhất. Tổng thống Pháp tính toán gì khi mời chủ nhân Nhà Trắng,người không được cảm tình của công luận châu Âu. Đề tài tốn nhiều giấy mực.
Libération đưa độc giả tới Mossoul trong hoang tàn đổ nát do Daech để lại trong khi Le Figaro khẳng định hoàng hôn phủ bóng tổ chức Nhà Nước Hồi Giáo tại Mossul. Nhật báo kinh tế Les Echos đưa hai tin báo động : thâm thủng trong ngân sách quốc gia do chính phủ trước để lại 8 tỷ đôla. Và cơn gió lạnh thổi qua thị trường chứng khoán châu Âu mà bất trắc đang chờ trong sáu tháng cuối năm 2017. Nhật báo công giáo La Croix đưa lên trang nhất thông tin gây chấn động tòa thánh Vatican : hồng y người Úc George Pell, bộ trưởng Tài Chính của Vatican bị tư pháp Úc truy tố về tội lạm dụng tình dục trẻ em trong thập niên 1970. Trong số các chủ đề đa dạng của các nhật báo ghi ngày thứ Sáu 30/06/2017, Le Monde dành bài xã luận với tựa đề : Một Người Mỹ tại Paris, mượn tựa của một tác phẩm nổi tiếng của Ernest Hemingway. Le Monde mô tả "người Mỹ Donald Trump" phải từ chối lời mời của nữ hoàng Anh và thủ tướng Theresa May vì thần dân Anh và đô trưởng Luân Đôn chống đối. Tại Đức, chính quyền chuẩn bị đối phó với những cuộc biểu tình lớn chống chủ nhân Nhà Trắng sang dự Thượng đỉnh G20 vào ngày 7 và 8/07/2017 ở Hambourg.
Một kết quả thăm dò ý kiến của Pew Research Center tuần qua cho thấy uy tín của tổng thống Donald Trump tuột dốc thê thảm trong công luận châu Âu, kể cả ngưòi Pháp. Tổng thống Barack Obama được hâm mộ bao nhiêu thì tổng thống Donald Trump bị ghét bấy nhiêu. Chỉ có Ba Lan là mong chờ đón tổng thống Trump vào ngày 06/07. Macron thực tiễn Thế nhưng, tổng thống Pháp Emmanuel Macron không phải là người dễ bị thuyết phục. Chủ nhân điện Elysée đã từng chứng minh ông không ngại tiếp xúc với những lãnh đạo bị ghét bỏ. Đòn ngoại giao ngoạn mục là mời tổng thống Nga Vladimir Putin sang điện Versailles, chứng tỏ thái độ thực tiễn trên hồ sơ Bachar al Assad, không buộc nhà độc tài phải ra đi làm điều kiện tiên quyết để giải quyết cuộc chiến. Với Donald Trump, một người xem thường Liên Hiệp Châu Âu, rút nước Mỹ ra khỏi hiệp định khí hậu Paris COP21, Emmanuel Macron, áp dụng bí kíp của Machiaveli (quân sư của nhiều lãnh chúa ở nước Ý thời Phục Hưng thế kỷ 14 - 15) đã đoạt ngôi vô địch "tâm cơ khó lường"của lãnh đạo siêu cường số một. Nếu chủ nhân điện Kremlin được khoản đãi trong cung son điện ngọc thì chủ nhân Nhà Trắng sẽ được chào đón với lễ nghi quân cách trên đại lộ Champs-Elysées. Cũng như khi dùng xe quân sự mui trần cho ngày nhậm chức, Emmanuel Macron muốn nói là ông gắn bó với những hình ảnh biểu trưng sức mạnh của nước Pháp và nước Pháp là cường quốc hạt nhân, là thành viên thường trực của Hội Đồng Bảo An, ngang hàng với Hoa Kỳ. Donald Trump muốn phục hồi "uy thế vĩ đại cho nước Mỹ " thì Emmanuel Macron muốn "trả lại uy thế vĩ đại cho địa cầu". Để đạt được mục tiêu này, theo tổng thống Pháp, cần phải vượt lên trên tâm lý tranh hơn tranh thua của trẻ con như cú bắt tay thử nội lực (tại Thựơng đỉnh G7) mà phải hợp tác chống khủng bố, giải quyết khủng hoảng Syria và chống biến đổi khí hậu. Làm những chuyện lớn này không thể thiếu nước Mỹ. Bên cạnh đó, tổng thống Pháp còn muốn đặt mình trong vai trò lãnh đạo Liên Hiệp Châu Âu trên chính trường quốc tế. Liệu nhà lãnh đạo 39 tuổi này có thể làm được không. Kết luận, và cũng là câu trả lời của Le Monde : Được, nhưng phải đi tới chứ không chỉ dừng lại ở hình ảnh và biểu tượng. Sự kiện tổng thống Pháp Emmanuel Macron mời tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump đã gây ngạc nhiên mà tổng thống Mỹ nhận lời lại càng bất ngờ hơn. Đây là một thành công mới của Emmanuel Macron, theo nhận định của một nhà ngoại giao. Trong bài «cử chỉ tính toán của Macron » thông tín viên Stéphane Le Bars từ Washington, cho biết lãnh đạo Mỹ-Pháp sẽ « tăng cường mối hợp tác đã chặt chẽ » từ chống khủng bố cho đến kinh tế. Trong bối cảnh hai nước đã đe dọa trả đũa Damas nếu một lần nữa, vũ khí hóa học được sử dụng tại chiến trường Syria, hồ sơ này sẽ được thảo luận trong dạ tiệc chiều 13/07. Theo Le Monde, sự kiện vị tổng thống Mỹ từng đưa những thông điệp thiếu lịch sự với Pháp như là « Paris không còn là Paris, thành phố ánh sáng » nay sắp đến Paris đã gây ngạc nhiên tại nước Mỹ nhưng ít được bình luận. Tại Pháp, nhật báo Công Giáo La Croix đặt câu hỏi có nên mời Donald Trump dự lễ diễn binh 14/07 hay không ? Phe ủng hộ cho rằng đây là biểu tượng của hai nước đồng minh lâu dài, nếu chỉ mời quân đội Mỹ mà không mời tổng tư lệnh tối cao thì chỉ gây bất đồng vô ích. Còn theo phe chống, đa số là cánh tả, thì tổng thống Pháp phải nhân cơ hội này để thảo luận sâu xa về thế cờ chiến lược chung và đặt thẳng vấn đề với Donald Trump về mối quan hệ với tổng thống Nga Putin. Một người Trung Quốc tại Hồng Kông Hồng Kông là chủ đề được quan tâm đặc biệt : 20 năm sau ngày Luân Đôn trao trả nhượng địa Hồng Kông cho Bắc Kinh (01/07/1997), vì sao chỉ có 20% người dân bán đảo mang tên Hương Cảng xem mình là người Trung Quốc ? Bên cạnh bản tin « Nước Pháp kêu gọi Trung Quốc trả tự do cho Lưu Hiểu Ba » là phóng sự của Le Figaro « Tập Cận Bình triệt hạ Hồng Kông ». Theo tường thuật của đặc phái viên Sébastien Falletti thì Hồng Kông đã biến thành một đồn lũy đón tiếp chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình nhân 20 năm Bắc Kinh lấy lại chủ quyền. Các biện pháp an ninh đặc biệt, với 11.000 cảnh sát chìm nổi, được bố trí chặt chẽ đề phòng biểu tình và bảo vệ « tư lệnh khủng bố » như lời ta thán của một người đàn ông trung niên thuộc thế hệ thứ ba gốc Quảng Đông : 20 năm qua là 20 năm xấu. Người Hoa lục tràn sang xâm lấn làm vật giá leo thang. Chính nỗi bất bình này đã làm cho xu hướng đòi độc lập lên cao lấn át phong trào đấu tranh dân chủ, theo nhận định của nhật báo cánh hữu. Nhật báo kinh tế Les Echos điểm qua những khó khăn của « Hồng Kông đang bị Trung Quốc nuốt chửng. Người nghèo khó ngày càng đông và càng nghèo hơn, phải lên nóc cao ốc mà ở. Tuổi trẻ không bao giờ bỏ cuộc ». Tuổi trẻ không bỏ cuộc là lời xác quyết của Hoàng Chí Phong (Joshua Wong), cậu học sinh trung học trong phong trào Dù Vàng năm 2014, nay là một sinh viên thủ lĩnh đảng dân chủ Demosito, tiếp tục thách thức người khổng lồ Trung Quốc : chúng tôi sẽ chứng minh cho Tập Cận Bình thấy thời điểm này không phải là lúc ăn mừng mà là biểu tình phản kháng. Một khi Hồng Kông trở về Trung Quốc, Hoàng Chí Phong chỉ ra những mưu toan của Trung Quốc như dùng tư pháp để trói tay các nhà tranh đấu, dùng « tư bản đỏ » để xâm chiếm Hồng Kông, đầu cơ địa ốc hay qua bàn tay tỷ phú Jack Mã Vân, chủ nhân Alibaba, kiểm soát nhật báo có uy tín South China Morning Post. Gọng kềm Chiến thuật ba mặt giáp công : kinh tế, chính trị, văn hóa của Trung Quốc được nhật báo Công Giáo La Croix lược kể nhận xét của một vài thanh niên tuổi 20 trong bài « Định mệnh đắng cay của Hồng Kông ». Phần dẫn nhập nhắc lại khung cảnh trời mưa u ám trong buổi lễ bàn giao ngày 01/07/1997.

          Mitchell Weiser Header Sees Germany Past Spain in Euro U21 Championship Final   

A stunning header from Mitchell Weiser saw Germany to a 1-0 win over Spain in the final of the UEFA European Under-21 Championship on Friday at the Stadio Cracovia in Krakow, Poland. 

Germany took a deserved lead in the 39th minute when Weiser guided a superb looping header into the top corner from a narrow angle.

After a passive first period, Spain improved after the break and pinned their opponents back for long spells. But the spark they showcased so frequently earlier in the tournament was absent, as Germany were able to shut out La Roja’s array of attacking talent.

It’s the second time Germany have won this competition; the likes of Manuel Neuer, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil steered the team to victory in 2009.

Following a dominant start to the match from Spain, it was Germany who had the best early opening. Max Meyer was just inches away from putting his side ahead, as he saw his bullet header from the edge of the area clatter off the post.

It was the trigger for some smart attacking play from Germany, with Serge Gnabry particularly dangerous; he tested Kepa Arrizabalaga a couple of times with sharp efforts.

As noted by football journalist Patrick Boyland, for much of the first half this prodigious Spain team was being bossed:

Spain did go close with a header from a raiding Hector Bellerin, but they were looking uncharacteristically toothless in the final third. Subsequently, Germany were becoming increasingly emboldened.

Six minutes before the break they got the lead they deserved. Jeremy Toljan marched down the right flank and whipped in a cross to the near post. Weiser did well to get to the ball and then somehow steered a glancing header into the top corner over a stranded Kepa.

Sports journalist Jack Lang was full of praise for the finish from the Hertha Berlin man:

As they trudged off at half time, the vibrancy looked to have been sucked out of the star-studded Spain side, with Germany in total control.

Unsurprisingly, there was a reaction from Spain after the break, with Saul, the leading scorer in the tournament, driving them forward from midfield. The Atletico Madrid man prompted Julian Pollersbeck into a fine save with a rasping shot from distance.

As noted by journalist Seb Stafford-Bloor, with Germany seeming to retreat from their first-half pressing, they were playing a dangerous game:

Even so, they remained a threat on the counter-attack, with Gnabry surging into the box into the left channel and stabbing a shot at Kepa. Saul also flung himself in front of a goal-bound shot from Meyer at the end of another break.

Indeed, Spain were far from secure as they pushed forward in search of an equaliser and manager Albert Celades introduced Inaki Williams in search of some attacking inspiration in the final stages.

Red shirts edged further and further forward as the clock ticked down. Yet as sports journalist David Cartlidge noted, Germany were robust in their defensive work:

While there were some hairy moments for the German defence, they were able to prevent Spain from creating any clear openings. La Roja were limited to efforts from distance, with Saul seeing a last-minute shot blocked from the edge of the box. 

With their chances slipping away, there was little care in Spain’s buildup play, with the delivery from Gerard Deulofeu and Marco Asensio from wide areas especially wayward. In the end, Germany were deserved and unexpectedly comfortable winners.

          Barcelona Transfer News: Dani Ceballos Reportedly Eyed Amid Real Madrid Rumours   

Barcelona are reportedly hopeful of dashing in front of rivals Real Madrid to seal a summer move for Real Betis midfielder Dani Ceballos after it looked likely the playmaker would join Los Blancos. 

Ceballos has starred as one of Spain's top performers en route to the final of the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, and Spanish daily Marca reported Barca are now keen on his signature (h/t Sport).

It's said the Blaugrana don't want to lose to their fiercest foes in another transfer battle after missing out on Marco Asensio and Theo Hernandez, with Ceballas thought to be available for as little as €9 million (£7.9 million).

Ceballos has been closely linked with a move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in recent transfer windows and penned a new contract with Betis in October 2015 following a summer of speculation over his future that year. 

His dazzling displays in Poland this month have brought Barcelona back into the frame, but Ceballos recently dismissed any speculation and insisted his future will be decided after the Under-21 European Championship. Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS (h/t Football Espana), he said:

“I feel relaxed about the reports. My aim is to beat Germany, and when the tournament is over, I'll sit down with my agents and we'll look at the offers on the table."

“Right now, my future is with Betis. I have three years left on my contract, and I'm relaxed."

“At the end of the day, if the big clubs are interested in you, it's because you're doing well. It's really nice to be talked about in that way.”

It seems no coincidence talk of Barca's heightened interest in the player comes after he helped lead Spain to a 3-1 hammering of 10-man Italy in the European semi-finals, earning praise from FourFourTwo's Kristan Heneage:

The Blaugrana could also have it in mind that Ceballos could be crafted into Andres Iniesta's eventual successor, although Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti is thought to be a primary target, per Goal's Nizaar Kinsella.

The 20-year-old completed his youth development at Betis after joining the club in 2011 and has since established his spot as one of the team's senior stars, contributing to a balanced 2016-17 season, per Squawka:

That consistency in first-team minutes has lent itself well to Ceballos blossoming among Spain's top flight as a top talent, although maintaining that first-team role is likely to be a priority in his immediate future.

Some may feel those starting XI hopes would be better served at the Camp Nou rather than the Bernabeu, backed up by Marca's suggestion Barca may offer him first-team chances right away, while Real would loan him back to Betis for a year.

Ceballos may have already suggested where his heart lies after Marca posted past tweets of Ceballos' criticising some Barca players, while Sport reported he had deleted old posts praising the Catalans—something that wouldn't go down well in Madrid.

          Survivors Series 6   
Things move on, people rebuild, the world starts again. This is where we find ourselves at the beginning of Survivors Series 6. It sees the world two years on from the pandemic that killed 99% of the population – links are being formed between communities, a fledgling society is incubating – tenuous links are being formed with the Norwegian Federation, Norway even has a rudimentary postal system and some industry, but everything is very very tenuous and could all come falling down. And in Britain things are pretty much like they are now (apart from a decimated population) but the British attitude seems to have survived the pandemic and a lot of communities want to remain isolated. Yes indeed the plague may have destroyed the world as we know it but the UKIP gene seems to have survived intact and as Abby Grant (Carolyn Seymour) finds out some communities are not as welcoming and outward looking as the world needs them to be to thrive.
 This set takes a slightly different approach to the other sets, rather than one big story told over four chapters these are four separate stories about different characters, but they share a thematic and tonal link – the theme of isolation versus engagement runs through the stories like the words in a particularly bleak stick of rock bought just out of season and as always there are four stories:
 6.1 Beating the Bounds by Ian Potter
 Continuing her search for her son Abby Grant comes across an isolated community where feudalism has become the normal way of life. Its a big community with over 200 people, they have a Countess in charge (Sheila Reid) who is a focal point for the community – but this community has long been hidden away from the world and was not at all affected by the pandemic – and Abby Grant may be a carrier. A tense opener and a microcosm of the problems facing the world, fear of contact with outsiders may be a way to keep yourselves safe, but for how long? How long can a small community with diminishing resources and a small gene pool survive? How long can a community that relies on an elderly matriarchal figurehead to unite the people survive? what happens when she dies? This is a tense opener – the community is on borrowed time but only Abby can see it the residents are just too close to their lives to see any different. Bleak and cautionary.
 6.2 The Trapping Pit by Christopher Hatherall
 As Jenny (Lucy Fleming) and Ruth (Helen Goldwyn) pay a trade visit to Evelyn Piper’s Foundation – they are attacked by bandits, two young scared starving survivors Craig (George Watkins) and Spike (Hannah Genesius) – and soon the tables are turned, Spike has fled and Craig has fallen down a trapping pit and is impaled on a tree root and it is up to Ruth to save his life. And she is determined not to let him slip away. Relentlessly grim with some incredible performances especially from Helen Goldwyn as Ruth and George Watkins as Craig as Ruth tries with rudimentary equipment to keep Craig alive until help arrives, Craig tells Ruth stories about his childhood as he loses more and more blood an his body goes in to shock from the pain this is the most human episode of Survivors and is the ethos of the series personified in one episode.
 6.3 Revenge of Heaven by Simon Clark
 Greg Preston (Ian McCulloch) has made it to Norway and is in discussions with the Norwegian Federation to form trade links with like minded communities in the UK and there are rumours of a cure for the plague discovered by a Russian scientist Professor Raskova (Tracy Wiles), but she has been kidnapped and is about to be shipped to Poland – so it is up to Greg and his new friend the mysterious Katherine Tanner (Julie Graham – who was also Abby Grant in the 2009 remake!) to undertake a life or death race against time to rescue the professor. The most action based episode of Survivors I have heard, almost a blockbuster in its production and tone – this has a similar theme of selfish isolation versus the good of all but on a much larger scale – the future of the human race is at stake and Greg Preston is on the case.
 6.4 Lockup by Andrew Smith
 Abby Grant discovers the community of Peacetown and is surprised to find out that it is based at an old Prison, converted to house a community and keep it safe. Peacetown claims to be self sufficient and will not trade with neighbouring communities, but comes down hard on those that break their rules, and one of the people who has allegedly broken the rules is one Greg Preston…
Presided over by the tyrannical Brendon Glover (James Wilby) an ex Prison warden who has his own ideas about crime and punishment. A brutal end to a pretty brutal set. Abby Grant has never been better with her disdain for Glover and all he stands for and Greg plays the hero with authority but not with arrogance, a born leader who us reluctant to be cast in that role but a role circumstances have forced him to take on.
 A very different take on Survivors, much more stand alone but much more desperate for it, having the main players split up and having to try to be, if not heroes, then the best that they can possibly be in awful circumstances is refreshing to hear, there is hope for the future, there s a way forward but it will be slow and it will be hard and the most difficult thing is convincing others to look outwards and embrace a brave new world and not inwards to self destruction. A million miles away from easy listening but a well deserved 10/10.


          4 Goals for Trump’s European Trip Next Week   
On 06.29.17 02:57 PM posted by Fred Lucas At the top of President Donald Trump’s agenda in Europe next week will be confronting Russia, delivering a major address on America’s vision for the continent going forward, and what constitutes “fair trade,” top White House officials said Thursday. “He’ll do what is necessary to confront Russia’s destabilizing behavior,” H.R. McMaster says. Trump will first go to Warsaw, Poland, for a major speech before traveling to Hamburg, Germany, for the G-20 Summit. The trip will include a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin amid investigations at home about Russian interference in the 2016 election. *1.) Confronting Russia*
          Estas son las fotos ganadoras de los iPhone Photography Awards 2017

Un año más, los organizadores del certamen que premia a las mejores fotografías realizadas con un iPhone nos presentan los ganadores de su concurso para demostrarnos que no hace falta una gran cámara para hacer buenas fotos y que lo más importante es la creatividad del fotógrafo. Os mostramos las fotos ganadoras de los iPhone Photography Awards 2017.

Y aunque estemos de acuerdo en que sí, que efectivamente la mejor cámara es la que uno tiene, lo cierto es que tampoco es que el conocido terminal de Apple nos parezca el mejor dispositivo para hacer fotos. A pesar de lo cual, está claro que, al margen de con qué estén hechas, las imágenes del concurso son en términos generales de una gran belleza.

ippa 'The nomads of Europe' Foto de Samuel Nacar (Albacete), primer puesto en la categoría Actualidad

Por cierto que el concurso celebrababa este año su décima edición en la que participaron, según la organización, cientos de fotógrafos de 140 países de todo el mundo. Entre los ganadores destacan chinos y norteamericanos, pero también hay algunos españoles (dos concretamente), que lograron estar entre los elegidos. Se trata de Samuel Nácar (Albacete), ganador en la categoría Actualidad con su foto “Los nómadas de Europa” o Javier Wandosell (Madrid), segundo puesto en la categoría Series con su colección “Hidden Parts”.

Y ya sin más os dejamos ya con todos los ganadores de las 19 categorías a concurso, empezando por la categoría principal, la de Fotógrafo del Año, cuyo ganador absoluto (se lleva un iPad Pro) fue el neoyorkino Sebastian Tomada, con una foto de unos niños recorriendo las calles de Qayyarah (Irak) cerca del fuego y el humo que sale de los pozos de petróleo que han sido incendiados por los soldados del ISIS.

          Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber to Open 2017 Women and War: Exodus Festival   

Hurried Steps is a hard hitting, powerful text by award-winning Italian writer, Dacia Maraini. It will open 2017's Women and War: EXODUS festival at Streatham Hill Theatre, with an all-star cast, featuring Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber. To start the evening, Madhav Sharma will read Your Voice by Mark Ravenhill.

It all takes place on 3 July 2017 at 7 p.m. All tickets cost £20 (including one drink) and proceeds from this performance will go to the The Farkhunda Trust, a charity that supports the education of women in Afghanistan. For more information, visit www.womenandwar.co.uk/festival-opening or go to www.hurriedsteps.org.

Women and War: EXODUS is a month-long multi-disciplinary festival examining the impact of war on women and the roads they take and the changes they make to rebuild their lives elsewhere. Any time, any place, any war, any woman.

Now in its second year, Women and War: EXODUS will focus on displacement and what it is to be a refugee, from any period of history and any part of the world. It will celebrate the lives of some of the courageous women from across the world through theatre, music, dance, art, film, performance, poetry, craft, cuisine, and comedy.

The festival will host work from around the globe, visiting Colombia, Myanmar, Chile, Poland, Mali, Afghanistan, India and Iran documenting, exploring and giving voice to the experiences of women, before, during and after war.

This year, the festival is based in a pop-up theatre in South London breathing life back into Streatham Hill Theatre, just ten minutes from Brixton and right by Streatham Hill station.

The festival runs 4-30 July 2017. For more about the programme, scroll down for a list of events, or visit www.womenandwar.co.uk.


2017 FESTIVAL PROGRAMME:

DRAMA, MUSIC, ART, DANCE

AFSOON

Afsoon is an Iranian artist.

After spending her childhood in Iran and late teens and early twenties in San Francisco, she settled in London. Her nomadic life is reflected in my work where East merges with West and the result is at once familiar and foreign. There are several layers in her work and at times she combines text with images. She also combines different techniques such as linocut, photography, collage and etching. The result is a rich yet often playful and humorous tableau in which the audience is able to engage and interpret in its own way. In January 2008 the British Museum purchased two series of Afsoon's work for its contemporary Middle Eastern collection.

BABA'S WAR

Baba's war is an exploration of how war affects the individual- the individual in question being my Polish grandmother. With cake, music, anecdotes and the inherited trauma theory, Baba's War is a poignant, and often funny, look at identity and what makes us who we are.

WOMEN AT WAR: SISTERHOOD KNOWS NO BORDERS

What happens when women engage in combat? Does it change the way we engage in combat?

Devised from interviews with women in the US Army's Female Engagement Team, whose mission was to engage with Afghani women. Using verbatim, poetry, and movement, the lives of the women of the FET are intertwined with the women of Afghanistan.

COLOMBIA DAY - 4 July 2017

Organised by the Truth, Memory and Reconciliation Commission (TMRC) of Colombian Women in the Diaspora and supported by Conciliation Resources,Colombia Day is a unique opportunity to meet incredibly inspiring Colombian women living in London. Learn from their experiences as conflict survivors, migrants, peacebuilders, and community organisers through an exhibition, short film, music, and performance.

The TMRC was established in London in 2015 to empower women of the diaspora to play a role in the process of building peace in Colombia. The Commission believes that the migratory experiences and skills of the diaspora are assets in the peacebuilding process, and should inform Colombia's collective historical memory. In addition, the project seeks to contribute to healing the trauma created by decades of conflict, and support the integration of the diaspora in their host countries. A considerable part of the Commission's work has been to document the impact of war and of migration on women and to understand the ways in which women have learnt to cope with their traumatic experiences.

          10 Battery Gigafactories Are Now in the Works. And Elon Musk May Add 4 More   

Gigafactory announcements have been trending in recent months, with plans for at least 10 new plants revealed in the last six months. Half a dozen have been planned in the last month alone.

In Germany, for example, the Daimler subsidiary Accumotive laid the foundation for a $550 million plant designed to take annual lithium-ion battery production from its current level of 80,000 units up to around 320,000.

And Energy Absolute, of Thailand, reportedly has plans for a $2.9 billion factory in Asia, with an annual production capacity of 1 gigawatt-hour per year, scaling to 50 gigawatt-hours a year by 2020. 

Meanwhile, a consortium including Boston Energy and Innovation (BEI), Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly, Primet Precision Materials and Magnis Resources confirmed it will build a 15-gigawatt-hour-a-year plant on IBM’s former Huron Campus manufacturing site in New York.

BEI, Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly and Magnis Resources are also working with Eastman Kodak Group to build a similarly sized plant near Townsville in Queensland, Australia. The backers have said the plant could create around 7,000 jobs. 

More recently a company called Energy Renaissance has lifted the lid on plans for a factory in Darwin, in Australia’s Northern Territory, with a production capacity of a gigawatt-hour of batteries a year.

The most aggressive gigafactory plans, however, remain with the company that came up with the concept. Tesla’s Elon Musk has said he will announce “probably four” new gigafactories this year. One has long been slated for Europe, and another has been confirmed to be in the works in Shanghai, China. 

The recent announcements follow at least five gigafactory proposals put forward for Europe before the end of last year, including facilities in Sweden, Hungary and Poland. Not all the new plants will focus on lithium-ion batteries, though. 

The U.S. lead-acid battery maker Johnson Controls, for example, unveiled proposals for two Chinese plants with a combined annual capacity of 13.5 million batteries.

The company already has production capacity for 16 million batteries a year, from a factory in Chongqing and one in Zhejiang, and is looking invest $250 million in a new plant that could produce up to 7.5 million units a year in Shandong from 2019. 

A second plant would follow in 2020. The increased capacity is aimed at satisfying growing demand from the start-stop engine market.

Overall, Bloomberg reports that global battery-making capacity is set to more than double by 2021, topping 278 gigawatt-hours a year compared to 103 gigawatt-hours at present.

The massive planned increase in battery production feels similar to the Chinese manufacturing boom that radically altered the PV landscape around a decade ago, by creating oversupply that ultimately led to the demise of dozens of solar firms.

Could the same phenomenon be underway in battery manufacturing?

Probably not, say storage experts. The pricing declines won't be nearly as dramatic due to supply chain differences. 

"Unlike PV, battery raw materials are rare metals that have to be mined and processed, so they will have constant supply-demand push-pull, minimizing risk of supply glut," said Ravi Manghani, director of GTM Research's storage practice.

"The industry is in the middle of a huge cost declines phase as manufacturers continue to bring large gigafactories on-line. While some individual vendors may see massive cost step-downs as facilities are activated or new generation products with superior density are launched, on a macro level, the declines are going to be much more gradual," said Manghani.

According to Logan Goldie-Scot, head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance's storage practice, the growth in production capacity is already considered in pricing forecasts.

“We're already factoring the ramp-up in production capacity and ongoing price decreases into our analysis,” said Goldie-Scot. “I don't foresee a step-change reduction in price.”

By 2030, BNEF expects battery pack prices to fall to $73 per kilowatt-hour, down from a volume-weighted average of $273 per kilowatt-hour in 2016. 

“This is an average, though,” he said. “We're already seeing pack prices below $200 per kilowatt-hour.”

David Hart, director at E4tech, an international strategic consultancy focused on sustainable energy, said much of the upcoming capacity will be needed to satisfy forecast growth in vehicle electrification. 

“Building gigafactories is a logical next step in creating a battery industry that's fit for the purpose of supplying vehicles,” he said. “I don't think the rise in gigafactories will necessarily result in a price crash.”

Even if the battery market is unlikely to face the same pressures as solar, it will still grapple with challenges of its own.

“Very importantly, it's not clear that the resource supply chains exist yet for all these factories,” Hart said. “Lithium and cobalt supply needs to be increased, and everyone is vying for supply.”

          Gentleman-nya Bung Hatta   

-->

Banyak orang mengira termasuk hampir semua sejarawan bahwa mundurnya Hatta di tahun 1956 adalah ketidakcocokannya dengan Bung Karno. Tapi sebenarnya tidak, Hatta tidak pernah memusuhi secara serius Sukarno, Hatta sama sekali tidak ada masalah pada tahun 1956 dengan Sukarno atau keputusan-keputusan politik besar. Pembubaran Konstituante justru dilakukan setelah Hatta mundur, pemberontakan-pemberontakan di daerah tidak ada hubungannya dengan Bung Hatta, bahkan setelah tahun 1956 beberapa pemberontakan daerah awalnya adalah mosi tidak percaya kepada Djakarta karena dikira Djakarta menyingkirkan Hatta, padahal tidak.

Dalam beberapa titik penting sejarah di masa lalu, Sukarno amat pasif dalam melakukan keputusan-keputusan politik, Sukarno. Hampir semua keputusan ditangani Hatta. Keputusan yang terkenal adalah Maklumat X 1945 soal liberalisasi pembentukan partai-partai politik. Dalam soal itu Sukarno kerap mengeluh ia dilangkahi Hatta. Dalam revolusi Sukarno ingin adanya Partai tunggal, tapi setelah fait accompli Hatta, partai menjadi terlalu banyak dan kerap menimbulkan friksi politik besar, puncaknya adalah perang Solo yang berakhir pada geger Madiun 1948.

Akhir Tahun 1948, Belanda menerjunkan puluhan ribu tentara mereka serentak ke kota-kota penting di Indonesia. Di muka dunia Internasional aksi itu dikatakan "Aksi Polisionil" karena Belanda masih menganggap Indonesia adalah wilayah dalam negeri Belanda. Sementara pihak Indonesia menyatakan itu adalah "Agresi Militer yang kedua" setelah sebelumnya terjadi tahun 1947, Indonesia menuduh inilah yang disebut ekspansi militer sebuah Negara kepada Negara lain seperti hal-nya Hitler menginvasi Polandia. Sukarno, Hatta, Sjahrir, Agus Salim dan pemimpin-pemimpin lain di Yogya ditangkapi. Militer Republikein lari ke gunung-gunung mereka menolak untuk ditangkap, pihak Militer praksis dipegang Jenderal Sudirman yang sudah rusak paru-parunya untuk menembus lebat hutan di Jawa Tengah dan Timur melakukan konsolidasi pasukan.
Saat itu Tan Malaka sudah berhitung, “Kekuatan Belanda tinggal sedikit lagi, saya tahu benar watak orang Belanda. Dia tidak akan melakukan kekuatan besar-besaran bila tidak putus asa. Saya perkirakan perang paling lama akan berlangsung selama 2 tahun lagi, sementara Amerika Serikat dan Sovjet Uni masih pusing soal Eropa setelah selesainya Hitler dibunuh”

Belanda berlagak gagah dimana-mana, tank-tank Sherman berkeliling ke segenap penjuru kota dan membangun pencitraan bahwa Hindia Belanda dalam waktu dekat akan berdiri kembali. Ternyata terbukti dengan serangan militer yang sporadis dari militer Indonesia pasukan Belanda keteter dimana-mana. Serangan Umum di Yogya dan Serangan umum di Solo membuat Belanda keliatan kelemahannya. Tapi tidak bagi kelompok pro perundingan.

Di tahun 1945 ada perbedaan antara Pemuda-Pemuda Djakarta dengan Djawa Tengah dan Djawa Timur. Pemuda-pemuda Djawa Tengah dan Timur memutuskan tidak mau berunding dengan pihak Djepang soal merebut gudang senjata, mereka langsung perang dan rakyat mengepung gudang. Senjata-senjata banyak didapatkan, bahkan di Surabaya kelengkapan militernya akibat merebut gudang senjata mampu secara jantan menghadapi Inggris, dan sejarah mencatat : ‘Hanya di Surabaya-lah Inggris kalah perang’. Di Djawa Tengah juga begitu, tidak ada perundingan gudang-gudang senjata harus direbut. Perebutan senjata ini nyaris tak menimbulkan korban, bahkan Kapten Suharto (kelak jadi Letkol Suharto) berhasil merebut gudang senjata di Kotabaru dan pasukannya memiliki alat kelengkapan militer paling kuat. Di Djakarta lain lagi ceritanya, keputusan saat itu adalah perundingan untuk merebut gudang senjata, akibatnya fatal. Puluhan tokoh pemuda mati dalam perang saat perundingan berlangsung bertele-tele, Daan Mogot dan tragedi dua anak Margono Djojohadikusumo : Subianto dan Sujono di Serpong Januari 1946. Akibat perundingan inilah pemuda-pemuda Djakarta terlalu lemah dibandingkan rekannya yang di Djawa Tengah dan Djawa Timur.

Begitu juga dengan pemikiran memperpendek perang revolusi 1945. Tan Malaka berpikir apabila perang diperpendek dengan perundingan maka yang terjadi adalah ‘Revolusi melahirkan bangsa yang lembek’. Tan Malaka ingin dilakukan perang total karena dengan hanya perang total-lah “Semua royan-royan revolusi bisa melahirkan rasa persatuan yang amat kuat diantara rakyat Indonesia, rakyat akan paham tujuan besar bangsa Indonesia liwat kesakitan-kesakitan perang revolusi”

Tapi kabar di Yogya begitu menyakitkan hati Tan Malaka. Para pemimpin tidak mau tempur mati-matian di hutan-hutan, tidak membangun perlawanan revolusinya. Di tahun 1948 terlihat sekali para pemimpin yang lahir dari dunia pergerakan Intelektual tidak terlatih untuk melakukan perang di hutan-hutan seperti yang dilakukan bekas anak buah Tan Malaka, Ho Chi Minh dari Vietnam. Tan Malaka sudah memperkirakan “Kalau pemimpin ditangkap tak lain tak bukan, ujung-ujungnya adalah Perundingan”.

Generaal Sudirman, adalah pengikut Tan Malaka yang paling setia. Ia orang yang paling mendukung program-program Tan Malaka. Saat pertempuran di Solo terjadi, Sudirman menunggu apa kata Tan Malaka. Saat rapat Persatuan Perjuangan, Sudirman-lah yang membuka pidato rapat, lalu ketika Tan Malaka meneriakkan “Merdeka 100%” maka Sudirman berdiri dan bertepuk tangan seraya bersumpah akan memerdekakan Indonesia, total…setotal-totalnya.

Sukarno sendiri saat itu sudah terjebak pada sistem pemerintahannya yang ia bentuk. Bila ia ke hutan, maka ia akan berhitung ‘siapa yang pegang komando’ bisa saja nanti kelompok Tan Malaka yang bisa drive dirinya. Sukarno selama perang revolusi menyerahkan keputusan ke Hatta, dan Hatta selamanya satu napas dengan Sjahrir lalu terjadilah keputusan yang paling amat dibenci Tan Malaka “Berunding dengan Belanda”
Perundingan KMB di Den Haag akhir tahun 1949, merupakan penghinaan bagi kelompok Tan Malaka. Di Koran-koran terjadi eforia KMB, rakyat seakan-akan gembira menerima keputusan perundingan, dikiranya KMB adalah kemenangan Republik, dikiranya KMB adalah berhasilnya perang. KMB justru adalah ‘Pertanda Indonesia Kalah Perang’ karena dimanapun dalam hukum perang Internasional ‘pihak yang kalah perang harus membayar ganti rugi akibat peperangan’ seperti Jerman yang kalah perang pada Perang Dunia Pertama, membayar dengan ‘Klausa Perjanjian Versailles’ dan Jepang yang kalah perang dengan Amerika Serikat harus menerima pendudukan pasukan Amerika Serikat di Jepang juga Jepang dilarang memiliki pasukan militernya sendiri. Indonesia harus membayar 4.6 Milyar Gulden ganti rugi perang. ‘Jadi logikanya Indonesia harus membayar bangsa asing yang membunuhi bangsanya sendiri’. Akibat perjanjian inilah yang amat lama tidak menjadi bahan perdebatan di muka-muka publik karena para tokoh kharismatis terlibat dalam perundingan ini. Ukuran dana 4,6 milyar gulden itu amat besar dengan nominal pada jaman itu, sebagai perbandingan : di tahun 1950 Amerika Serikat pernah menawari pembangunan jalan besar (Highway Standard) di sepanjang pulau Sumatera dengan konsesi masuknya mobil Ford ke Indonesia sebagai satu-satunya mobil yang bisa masuk ke Indonesia selama 10 tahun. Nilai jalan itu adalah 6 juta dollar, tapi usulan itu ditolak karena akan memberlakukan sistem monopoli. Jadi seandainya 4,6 milyar gulden itu tidak dikembalikan maka 200 kali highway standard bisa dibangun diseluruh wilayah Indonesia.

Setelah terjadi perundingan, Sudirman menolak turun gunung. “Kalau saya turun gunung berarti saya gembira akan kekalahan pasukan TNI”. Generaal Sudirman menolak turun gunung karena ia tahu, perundingan berarti kalah perang. Selama ini banyak di buku sejarah, seakan-akan Sudirman menolak turun gunung karena marah pada Sukarno, padahal bukan. Orang-orang di masa lalu tidak dangkal hatinya, mereka tidak peduli dengan konflik personal. Generaal Sudirman menolak turun gunung karena alasan prinsipil, ia tidak mau kalah perang. “Tapi pada akhirnya” persatuan diatas segala-galanya, pertaruhannya kalau Sudirman menolak turun gunung makan yang akan terjadi adalah perang saudara. Setiap orang tahu pada saat itu, Sukarno yang selalu jadi kartu pegangan orang Indonesia, rakyat akan terjebak pada perang saudara yang tidak mereka mengerti. Sudirman mengalah demi persatuan. Sudirman turun gunung, tapi Tan Malaka ditembak mati di Jawa Timur. Inilah tragedi revolusi.

Beberapa kelompok pasukan Tan Malaka menolak turun gunung, yang paling terkenal adalah Chaerul Saleh. Chaerul ini yang pegang pasukan Bambu Runtjing. Ia terus melawan tentara resmi dan menolak perundingan, pasukan Chaerul Saleh menyerang pos-pos militer TNI di Sukabumi dan wilayah lain di Djawa Barat sebagai aksi bentuk penolakannya terhadap KMB. Bahkan sampai pada tahun 1952 pasukan Chaerul Saleh terus bertempur dengan pihak militer. Inilah yang membuat Nasution marah.

Kebenaran kelompok Tan Malaka akhirnya terbukti pada tahun 1950-an ke atas. Di Vietnam, mereka menolak kalah dari Perancis dan melakukan perang total, di tahun 1952 Perancis angkat kaki dari Vietnam dengan menyisakan ratusan ribu serdadu berkalang tanah di Vietnam. Lalu Amerika Serikat datang dan merebut Vietnam dua puluh tiga tahun kemudian 1975, Amerika Serikat hengkang dari Vietnam dengan rasa malu, tentaranya berlarian ke helikopter seperti tentara pengecut menyelamatkan diri saat pasukan Ho Chi Minh masuk ke kota Saigon. Begitu juga dengan pasukan Mao yang berhasil menghantam kelompok Kuo Min Tang sampai ke Taiwan padahal pasukan Kuo Min Tang didukung Amerika Serikat. Dan saat ini di tahun 2011 kita menyaksikan seluruh Negara Eropa Barat mengemis pada RRC karena krisis ekonomi yang mereka alami.

Inilah yang dimaui Tan Malaka, fase pertama dalam pembentukan Negara atau bangsa yang terjajah adalah perang total. Dalam perang total akan terjadi situasi baru, pemahaman-pemahaman baru, alam sadar baru, dan yang terpenting arah sejarah menjadi lebih jelas tidak lembek.

Terbukti benar di tahun 1950-an perang Korea meletus. Harga-harga komoditi naik : timah, minyak bumi, kopra, karet dll naik. Kejadian ini mirip dengan boom minyak tahun 1973 yang kemudian dijadikan landasan rejeki Suharto di masa Orde Baru untuk membiayai kekuasaannya. Kenaikan luar biasa harga-harga akibat perang Korea 1950-an ini tidak bisa dinikmati rakyat Indonesia karena Indonesia harus bayar hutang perang kepada pihak Belanda. Yang kaya tetaplah perusahaan-perusahaan besar milik Belanda macam Lindeteves atau Borsumij Wehry. Kejadian ini membuat marah anggota Parlemen Komisi A, mereka memanggil Menteri Perekonomian saat itu Prof.Sumitro Djojohadikusumo. Sumitro menjawab “Kita sudah terikat perjanjian dengan Belanda”. Kelompok sisa-sisa Tan Malaka yang saat itu bergabung dalam Partai Murba marah besar ‘Wah, kalau begini caranya kita harus buat mosi tidak percaya terhadap KMB”.

Perjuangan menyusun Mosi tidak percaya ini bukan soal mudah. Kelompok Partai Murba yang dipimpin Maruto Nitimihardjo harus berkelahi kesana kemari untuk meyakinkan mosi tidak percayanya. Untuk memulai mosi ini Maruto mendatangi Hatta lalu Maruto bicara “Masih kurang saja Belanda mengambil dari kita”. Seraya berkata pasrah Hatta berkata “Karena saya yang menandatangani perjanjian KMB itu, saya persilahkan saudara Maruto untuk melanjutkan apa maunya, saya siap menerima segala konsekuensinya”.

Hampir lima tahun Maruto melakukan pendekatan-pendekatan politik ke semua pihak untuk menolak hasil KMB dan menyatakan mosi tidak percaya. Akhirnya mayoritas anggota Parlemen menyetujui untuk melakukan mosi tidak percaya, apalagi setelah Pemilu 1955 Perdana Menteri Ali Sastroamidjojo mendukung apa mau Partai Murba. “Mosi tidak percaya pada KMB”.

Melihat perkembangan mosi itu Hatta secara gentlemen berkata “Saya akan mundur” Saat itu Maruto mendatangi Hatta di kantornya di Merdeka Selatan. Hatta lama memandangi wajah Maruto, dan ia mengeluarkan air mata lalu memeluk Maruto. Setelah pertemuan itu datanglah surat dari Hatta : “Surat Pengunduran Diri”.

Surat pengunduran itu menjadi heboh dimana-mana, bahkan Sukarni Ketua Umum Murba, Partai yang jadi pelopor mosi tidak percaya itu berkata singkat sambil mau nangis : “Wah, Bung Hatta terlalu gentleman”.
Mundurnya Hatta membuat pihak banyak kalang kabut. Achmad Subardjo yang saat itu jadi Duta Besar di Swiss berkata kepada beberapa orang “Sesungguhnya dulu di tahun 1945 terjadi apa namanya Gentleman Agreement Four, mirip Amerika Serikat pada awal Revolusinya di tahun 1776. Seperti perjanjian antara Washington, Jefferson, Madison dan Franklin untuk bergantian menjabat sebagai Presiden Amerika Serikat, walaupun Franklin tidak menjabat tapi tiga orang menjabat bergiliran. Itulah yang terjadi, nah empat orang yang akan bergiliran jadi Presiden saat itu adalah : Sukarno, Iwa Kusumasumantri, Achmad Soebardjo dan Hatta sendiri. Tapi itu tidak terlaksana toh, malah keluar Testamen Tan Malaka”…..

Sukarno berdiam diri saja, ia sudah tahu arah sejarah akhirnya kelompok Tan Malaka yang menang dan benar melihat keadaan. Kemerdekaan 100% adalah tujuan terbesar bangsa ini, lalu dengan inspirasi dari Tan Malaka, Sukarno menjalankan program-program politiknya tapi siapakah yang bisa menggantikan Hatta? Kelompok PSI mengajukan Subandrio, yang pada akhirnya Bandrio malah merapat ke PKI. Sementara Murba harus menarik Maruto Nitimihardjo dan Sukarni sebagai lobbying ke Pemerintah, karena Maruto dianggap Sukarno selalu melawan, sementara Sukarni setiap ketemu Sukarno selalu berantem. Akhirnya Murba memanggil Chaerul Saleh yang di Jerman Barat untuk mendampingi Sukarno.

Dan pada akhirnya sejarah memberi tahu pada kita, ketika Sukarno dikalahkan saat menjalankan agenda Tan Malaka dengan bahasa-bahasa Sukarno yang ia namakan Trisakti, Berdikari, Pantja Azimat Revolusi, Gesuri, Vivere Pericoloso lalu Gestapu 65 terjadi, Sukarno diinternir di Wisma Yaso, Subandrio diseret ke penjara, Chaerul Saleh kabarnya mati di WC Tahanan Militer dan membuat Sukarni di depan jenasah Chaerul Saleh ngamuk-ngamuk kepada Adam Malik karena tak bisa memberikan pertolongan sama sekali kepada Cherul Saleh.

Lalu kita menyaksikan Indonesia seperti sekarang ini, tidak seperti Bung Hatta yang mengakui bila kebijakannya kalah dan tidak diakui, ia harus gentleman, coba sekarang Sri Mulyani menandantangani keputusan talangan Bank malah dilarikan ke luar negeri, ada juga Budiono yang malah dijadikan Wakil Presiden RI, Kebijakan Negara dijalankan tanpa rasa bersalah.

Negara kaya raya yang terus menerus dibodohi oleh Imperialisme asing. Negara dijual untuk kekayaan para pejabat. Kepada sejarah kita harus banyak belajar untuk masa depan Indonesia…………

          Tekuk Spanyol, Jerman Juara Piala Eropa U-21   

Jerman tampil sebagai juara Piala Eropa U-21 2017 setelah menaklukkan Spanyol 1- 0 pada final di Stadion Cracovia, Krakow, Sabtu (1/7/2017) dini hari WIB. Gol kemenangan Jerman dibuat M. Weiser.     

Laga Jerman kontra Spanyol berjalan menarik. Kedua tim langsung menampilkan permainan terbuka.

Pertandingan baru berjalan 10 menit, Jerman sudah menciptakan dua peluang. Salah satunya didapat S. Gnabry. Sayang tendangan kerasnya masih menyamping di sisi gawang Spanyol.

Spanyol, yang memperagakan bola pendek, juga beberapa kali mendapat kesempatan mencetak gol. Namun, upaya Marco Asensio dan Deulofeu masih terbentur penyelesaian akhir yang buruk.

Hingga pertengahan babak pertama, Jerman masih unggul dalam penguasaan bola. Tapi, kerja keras Meyer dan Haberer juga masih menemui jalan buntu.          

Usaha keras pemain Jerman akhirnya membuahkan hasil pada menit 40. M. Weiser mencetak gol lewat sundulan setelah menerima umpan matang dari Toljan.      

Spanyol mencoba mengejar ketinggalan. Tapi, hingga jelang babak pertama berakhir upaya Marcos Llorente dan Asensio selalu kandas di lini pertahanan Jerman. Babak pertama Jerman unggul sementara 1-0

Spanyol tanpa membuang waktu langsung mengurung pertahanan Jerman. Mereka terus berupaya mencari celah untuk mencetak gol penyeimbang.

Menit 57 Spanyol hampir menyamakan kedudukan. Namun, sepakan Saul masih bisa ditepis kiper Jerman Pollersbeck.

Tiga menit kemudian Jerman nyaris menambah kemenangan. Pelung pertama didapat Gnabry, tapi tendangannya masih bisa diblok kiper Spanyol.

Satu menit setelah itu Kempf membuang kesempatan. Sundulannya masih melebar di sisi kanan gawang Spanyol.

Menit 72 Spanyol kembali mendapat peluang emas. Tapi, sayang tendangan Dani dari luar kotak penalti masih menyamping tipis.

Jelang laga berakhir, Jerman mampu melepaskan tekanan dari Spanyol. Bahkan, beberapa kali mereka mengancam gawang lawannya


Susunan pemain:

Jerman: Pollersbeck; Toljan, Gerhardt, Stark, Meyer, Arnold, Gnabry, Kempf, Weiser, Haberer, Philipp

Spanyol: Kepa; Bellerin, Vallejo, Mere, Jonny; Llorente, Saul, Ceballos; Deulofeu, Sandro, Asensio

Kendati gagal membawa Spanyol U-21 menjuarai Piala Eropa U-21 setelah dikalahkan Jerman U-21 (0-1), Ceballos tetap tak memiliki lawan sepadan sebagai yang terbaik di turnamen. Adapun dua pemain yang mengancam dirinya adalah rekan setimnya, Saul Niguez dan Sergio Asensio.

          Autriche : La saison estivale commence avec une baisse des nuitées en mai (- 11,3 %) / Summer season 2017 started with decrease in overnight stays in May (–11.3%)   

7.12 million overnight stays were registered in May 2017, according to Statistics Austria's latest preliminary data, which represents a decrease of 11.3%. The overnight stays of resident visitors declined by 4.3%, those of non-residents by 15.4%. The number of guests was also decreasing by 6.7% (-7.8% for non-resident guests; -5.0 for resident guests). Mainly responsible for this negative development was the shift of religious holidays from May 2016 to June of the current year. Therefore it is to wait for the June 2017 figures in order to have a basis to compare the pre-summer-season May to June.

The overnight figures of the three most important foreign countries of origin were strongly decreasing (Germany: -29.9%; Switzerland and Liechtenstein: -13.0%; the Netherlands: -8.0%). In total, the decrease of overnights from these three countries amounted to 0.91 million. The strongest relative increases in overnight figures were registered from Russia (+37.5%), Poland (+18.0%) and the Czech Republic (+17.1%).

Hi Judi,

Sure hope you're still doing research on your family and are still using ancestry.com

I too descend from William & Margaret (ANDERSON) ROTE/ROAT.

I descend from their oldest son, George ROTE who married Catherine RISHEL. I have quite a bit of info on the ROTE family and will gladly share.

I visited the Graceland Cemetery in Lyons, KS a couple of years ago and took several pictures of gravestones. Will gladly share those, too, if you don't already have them.

Please respond directly to my personal email at k-turn@msn.com

Will be anxiously awaiting your reply.

Sincerely,

P.S. Just visited the Heston Cemetery near Havana, IL this Fall and also took several pictures. That's the cemetery where William and Margaret ROTE are buried.
          CZY ZASŁUŻYMY NA NIENAWIŚĆ MOSKWY ?   
Zakres polityki zagranicznej rządu Prawa i Sprawiedliwości, wytyczają słowa Andrzeja Dudy z orędzia prezydenckiego –  „Polityka zagraniczna, która nie lubi rewolucji, potrzebuje dzisiaj korekty. Ta korekta to zwiększenie aktywności”. Kilka dni później, prezydent powtórzył: „Absolutnie nie będzie żadnej rewolucji. Potrzebna jest nam korekta. Chodzi mi o zwiększenie aktywności. Akcentowałem konieczność poprawy relacji z sąsiadami.
Zapowiedź „korekty” zasadniczo przeczyła wcześniejszym ocenom polityki zagranicznej rządów PO-PSL. Szereg wypowiedzi polityków PiS oraz sztandarowy dokument tej partii, tzw. „Program PiS 2014” zawierał wyłącznie negatywne opinie na temat  dokonań poprzedników i w okresie przedwyborczym zapowiadał wręcz rewolucyjne zmiany.
Zasada „konieczności poprawy relacji z sąsiadami”, sformułowana dobitnie przez Andrzeja Dudę, już wówczas dowodziła podległości dogmatyce „georealizmu” i sytuowała partię pana Kaczyńskiego w grupie utopistów i mistyfikatorów, którzy od dziesiątków lat niweczą nasze marzenia o silnej i niepodległej Polsce. Ta grupa nie tylko odrzuca doświadczenia historyczne, ale nie chce dostrzec, że niezależnie od ilości podpisanych umów i werbalnych deklaracji, Moskwa i Berlin zawsze  będą wrogami polskości.
Historycznym dążeniem tych państw jest ustanowienie na Wiśle granicy rosyjsko-niemieckiej i wymazanie Polski z mapy świata.  To, czego nie sformułuje dziś żaden polityk niemiecki, jest od lat realizowane na mocy sojuszu Merkel-Putin i dokonywane przy współudziale „elit” III RP. Różnica między obecną sytuacją, a rokiem 1939 polega jedynie na odwróceniu zadań i modyfikacji akcentów: konflikt zbrojny ma wywołać Rosja, Niemcom zaś przewidziano rolę politycznego i ekonomicznego wspornika.
Jeśli nie ma dziś polityków zdolnych do rewizji naszej strategii wobec najbliższych sąsiadów, zaś rządząca III RP klasa polityczna nawet nie próbuje zdefiniować polskiej racji stanu, jest w tym dowód uległości wobec dyktatu porządku jałtańskiego i akceptacji ambicji rosyjskich i niemieckich.
Obowiązek zachowania „przyjacielskich” relacji z Rosją i Niemcami, to podstawowy mit paraliżujący polską myśl polityczną. Po roku 1989 został on „wzbogacony” retoryką unijną i narzucony III RP, jako trwała zasada polityki zagranicznej.
Przedstawiciele partii pana Kaczyńskiego celebrują go tym chętniej, że gorliwe zapewnienia o „przyjaźni” i „normalizacji stosunków” zdejmuje z nich odium najgorszego przekleństwa politpoprawności – posądzenia o „rusofobię” lub antyniemieckość.
Chwilowe pogorszenie relacji z Niemcami, wywołane dziś ambicjonalną hucpą prezesa Kaczyńskiego w związku z tzw. wyborami przewodniczącego RE oraz buńczuczne wypowiedzi polityków PiS, nie powinny zatrzeć prawdy, że przez ostatnie półtora roku ten rząd bezmyślnie zabiegał o „przyjazne relacje” z zachodnim sąsiadem i w żadnym zakresie nie potrafił podważyć niemieckiej dominacji nad Europą. Idę o zakład, że wkrótce będziemy świadkami kolejnej „normalizacji” tych stosunków i żadne incydenty (w tym nagłaśniana ostatnio sprawa instrukcji szefa RASP) nie wpłyną na kontynuację mitologii „georealistów”.
W poprzednim tekście cytowałem wypowiedź sekretarza stanu w Ministerstwie Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego Jarosława Selina oraz słowa prezydenta Andrzeja Dudy, których kontekst dotyczył obaw przed posądzeniem o „rusofobię”.
Warto wspomnieć, że w obawie przed tym „przekleństwem”, rząd PiS zakonserwował dwa sztandarowe projekty poprzedniego reżimu –  tzw. mały ruch graniczny z obwodem kaliningradzkim oraz działalność Centrum Polsko-Rosyjskiego Dialogu i Porozumienia.
Wydawało się, że natychmiastowe zamknięcie granicy z Kaliningradem (umożliwia to art. 12  umowy) i wskazanie zagrożeń związanych z rosyjsko-niemieckim projektem „Prusy Wschodnie”, powinno należeć do priorytetów rządu deklarującego dbałość o bezpieczeństwo Polaków. Nic podobnego nie nastąpiło i dopiero w lipcu 2016 roku rząd PiS, po pretekstem  „zapewnienia bezpieczeństwa w trakcie szczytu NATO i ŚDM” zdecydował się „tymczasowo zawiesić” mały ruch graniczny. Dziś, mimo szyderczych uwag Rosjan, iż  nie zależy im na ponownym otwarciu granicy, PiS nadal utrzymuje stan „tymczasowości”, a nawet rozważa ponowne uruchomienie antypolskiego projektu.
Wielokrotnie też pisałem, że likwidacja Centrum Polsko-Rosyjskiego Dialogu i Porozumienia- CPRDiP (nazwanego przeze mnie „centrum kata i ofiary”) powinna nastąpić natychmiast po zaprzysiężeniu rządu Beaty Szydło. Przyznam, że do czasu przeczytania wypowiedzi J.Selina na temat lęku przed zarzutem „rusofobii”, nie mogłem zrozumieć, dlaczego partia Kaczyńskiego przeznacza ponad 5,5 mln złotych rocznie na utrzymywanie TPPR-bis, a nawet dokonuje tam zmian personalnych i stawia na czele tej kompromitującej Polskę instytucji, prof. Andrzeja Nowaka. Słowa prominentnego polityka PiS ujawniły rzeczywiste powody, jakimi kierują się zakładnicy mitologii demokracji.
Przypomnę, że nie chodzi o byle jaką instytucję. CPRDiP jest symbolem tego zniewolenia, które doprowadziło do tragedii smoleńskiej i skazało nas na hańbę „pojednania” z kremlowskimi bandytami.
Powołanie odrębnej instytucji rządowej, odpowiedzialnej za „krzewienie idei dialogu polsko-rosyjskiego” ustalono podczas spotkania premierów Tuska i Putina w roku 2009. Projekt ten omawiano również w Smoleńsku, w trakcie ponownego spotkania w dniu 7 kwietnia 2010 r. Podjęto wówczas decyzję o utworzeniu odpowiedniej instytucji rządowej i powierzeniu inicjatywy założycielskiej ministrom kultury III RP i Federacji Rosyjskiej. Reżim PO-PSL w błyskawicznym tempie przeforsował uchwalenie specjalnej ustawy o utworzeniu Centrum. Jej projekt wpłynął do Sejmu 3 grudnia 2010 roku, a już 25 marca 2011 roku ustawa została przyjęta. 7 kwietnia 2011 - w rocznicę spotkania Putin-Tusk, podpisał ją Bronisław Komorowski. Centrum otrzymało okazałą siedzibę w warszawskim biurowcu Centrum Jasna, którego właścicielem jest Archidiecezja Warszawska. Był to wymierny dowód poparcia hierarchów Kościoła dla idei polsko-rosyjskiego „pojednania”.
Cele działalności CPRDiP są identyczne z zapisami zawartymi w peerelowskich statutach TPPR. Nie próbowano nawet maskować tej zbieżności i poddając tekst stylistycznej kosmetyce zapisano w ustawie wszystkie zadania wyznaczane dotąd Towarzystwu przez komunistycznych ministrów spraw wewnętrznych.
Warto wspomnieć, że, (wbrew wspólnym ustaleniom) w Rosji nigdy nie powstała podobna instytucja rządowa. Powołane tam Centrum Rosyjsko-Polskiego Dialogu i Porozumienia ma bowiem status fundacji i powstało na mocy dekretu prezydenckiego. Nie prowadzi ono żadnej działalności, a na stronie internetowej rosyjskiej fundacji można jedynie znaleźć publikacje szkalujące i atakujące Polaków.
Dziś CPRDiP, któremu przewodniczy prof. Andrzej Nowak, ogłasza kolejną edycję szkodliwego projektu -„Polsko-Rosyjskiej Wymiany Młodzieży 2017” oraz proponuje niemałe granty w ramach „konkursu na projekt na rzecz dialogu i porozumienia w stosunkach polsko-rosyjskich”. Pozostawienie tego symbolu zniewolenia i finansowanie CPRDiP na poziomie wyznaczonym przez reżim PO-PSL, jest oczywistym dowodem kontynuacji polityki poprzedników i znakiem uwikłania grupy rządzącej w groźne i kompromitujące kompleksy.
Dowodem nie jedynym i nie ostatnim.
Bez rozgłosu i anonsów w rządowych przekaźnikach, PiS reaktywował przed kilkoma dniami działalność tzw. Polsko-Rosyjskiej Grupy ds. Trudnych. Uroczystość powołania Grupy uświetnili swoją obecnością: ambasador Rosji w Polsce Siergiej Andriejew, ambasador Polski w Rosji Włodzimierz Marciniak, a także minister Jarosław Sellin, znany już z obaw przed posądzeniem o „rusofobię”.
Szef polskiego MSZ ogłosił przy tej okazji –„Dostrzegamy potrzebę dialogu społecznego, rozwoju kontaktów międzyludzkich, współpracy kulturalnej i odbudowy dwustronnych relacji gospodarczych z naszym rosyjskim sąsiadem. Rosja i Polska są sąsiadami i merytoryczny, przełamujący stereotypy dialog leży w naszym wspólnym interesie”. Zadeklarował także, że „mimo trudnej sytuacji Polska jest otwarta na konstruktywną współpracę”.
Polsko-Rosyjska Grupa ds. Trudnych to organ polityczny, który w najnowszej historii stosunków polsko-rosyjskich zapisał najczarniejszą kartę. Powołana w roku 2002, podczas pierwszej wizyty Putina w Polsce, grupa ta przez wiele lat  nie odgrywała większej roli. Aż do grudnia 2007 roku, gdy tuż po dojściu do władzy ekipy PO-PSL reaktywowano jej działalność i wyznaczono nowych członków. Polskim współprzewodniczącym został wówczas Adam Daniel Rotfeld – peerelowski dyplomata, zarejestrowany przez SB jako tajny współpracownik o pseudonimach „Ralf”, „Rauf"i „Serb”. Ze strony rosyjskiej, grupie przewodniczył były dyplomata sowiecki Anatolij Torkunow.
Członkowie grupy musieli posiadać niemałe wpływy w obu „zaprzyjaźnionych” krajach lub byli sprawnymi przekaźnikami poleceń faktycznych decydentów, bo odegrała ona ogromną rolę w procesach politycznych poprzedzających tragedię smoleńską i przez wiele lat patronowała polsko-rosyjskiemu „pojednaniu” Jak dalece sięgały te wpływy, pokazują dwa przykłady.
W listopadzie 2009 roku, Adam Rotfeld, po spotkaniu członków Grupy ds. Trudnych w Moskwie wyraził życzenie, by obchody 70. rocznicy zbrodni katyńskiej odbyły się z udziałem przedstawicieli Rosyjskiego Kościoła Prawosławnego i Kościoła katolickiego oraz zapowiedział, że „strona rosyjska zwróci się do RKP a my do Kościoła katolickiego z prośbą, aby podczas uroczystości reprezentowane były na stosownie wysokim szczeblu”. W tym samym czasie, Grupa rekomendowała „przywódcom obu państw” powołanie rządowych centrów „dialogu i pojednania”.
Gdy w lipcu 2012 roku Rotfeld wyraził inne życzenie - by tekst wspólnego „Przesłania do Narodów Polski i Rosji” podpisanego przez wysłannika Putina, Cyryla I i abp. Józefa Michalika - "został odczytany we wszystkich kościołach w Polsce i wszystkich cerkwiach w Rosji, bo miałoby to ogromne znaczenie", Rada Stała Episkopatu natychmiast podjęła decyzję o odczytaniu „orędzia” w polskich kościołach i wyznaczyła ten obowiązek na dzień 9 września 2012 roku. Wpływy Rotfelda nie sięgały jednak  agenta KGB o pseudonimie „Michajłow”, znanego dziś jako patriarcha Cyryl I, bo treści dokumentu nie odczytano w żadnej z rosyjskich cerkwi.
            Na pytanie - po co i z jaką intencją rząd Prawa i Sprawiedliwości reaktywował ten okryty niesławą organ, z pewnością nie otrzymamy odpowiedzi. Ten rząd nie chce i nie musi tłumaczyć się wyborcom, nawet z tak rażących decyzji. Można natomiast dostrzec, komu politycy PiS powierzyli zadanie „konstruktywnej współpracy” z Kremlem i na tej podstawie pokusić się o pewne wnioski.
Przewodniczącym Grupy został mianowany prof. Mirosław Filipowicz – dyrektor Instytutu Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej, wykładowca KUL. Ten sam prof. M. Filipowicz, w listopadzie 2008 r. histerycznie reagował na  informację o zaproszeniu przez KUL dr. Sławomira Cenckiewicza i na łamach „Gazety Wyborczej” grzmiał o „łamaniu zasady dyskursu naukowego”. Identyczne zastrzeżenia, wykładowca KUL wyrażał z powodu zaproszenia na uczelnię reżysera Grzegorza Brauna. Prof. Filipowicz należał również do prelegentów konferencji „Przyszłość chrześcijaństwa w Europie. Rola Kościołów i narodów Polski i Rosji” z roku 2013, podczas której miłośnicy „pojednania” debatowali nad  „przesłaniem o pojednaniu narodów Polski i Rosji”.
Tuż po tragedii smoleńskiej, Mirosław Filipowicz był pomysłodawcą powołania polsko-rosyjskiego zespołu złożonego z nauczycieli historii i naukowców historyków. Jego zadanie miało polegać na przygotowaniu pomocy edukacyjnych nt. relacji polsko-rosyjskich i polsko-radzieckich, przeznaczonych do wykorzystywania w gimnazjach i liceach. Filipowicz zastosował tu „nowatorską” metodę, którą tuż po Smoleńsku praktykowało wielu przedstawicieli świata nauki. Jak przypominał inny członek Grupy, dr Rafał Wnuk -  „Prof. Filipowicz zaproponował podejście, które można nazwać „ucieczką do przodu”. Zamiast koncentrować się na relatywnie świeżych zaszłościach historycznych, które z definicji sytuują Polaków i Rosjan na wrogich pozycjach, należy wyjść z propozycją pozytywną. Pierwszym filarem tego pomysłu jest rozszerzenie wachlarza zainteresowań na całość polsko-rosyjskich relacji: od średniowiecza po wiek XX. W takim ujęciu trudny wiek XX stałby się jedną z kilku odsłon polsko-rosyjskiej przeszłości, a nie jedynym punktem odniesienia.”
Prawda, że proste?
Nie chcę zanudzać czytelników opisem dokonań pozostałych członków nowo powołanej Grupy. Choć  znajdziemy tam kilka ciekawych postaci, jak wspomnianego już dr hab. Rafała Wnuka, autora paszkwilu "Brygada Świętokrzyska. Zakłamana legenda" zamieszczonego przed rokiem w GW, prof. Jerzego Menkesa, czy byłego dyrektora Instytutu Polskiego w Moskwie Marka Radziwona, to wybór przewodniczącego oraz obecność w Grupie ludzi z Centrum Polsko-Rosyjskiego Dialogu i Porozumienia, pozwalają przypuszczać, że intencje rządu PiS w zakresie „normalizacji” stosunków z Rosją są zbliżone lub identyczne z zamysłami poprzedników.
Jeśli politycy PiS powierzyli „plan działań na 2017 rok oraz agendę rozmów ze stroną rosyjską” ludziom uczestniczącym w posmoleńskim procesie „pojednania”, oceniam to jako najgorszą i skandaliczną rekomendację.  
Tym bardziej, że strona rosyjska doskonale rozpoznała „georealistyczne” fobie i kompleksy polityków PiS i w odpowiedzi na te niedwuznaczne umizgi, rozpoczęła wielowątkową operację psychologiczną.  Jest ona rozgrywana przez Rosję od lat kilkudziesięciu i sprowadza się do wytworzenia patologicznych, niesymetrycznych relacji, w których zamiar upokorzenia i pohańbienia przeciwnika odgrywa rolę „czynnika mobilizującego”. Rosja stosuje ją wobec tych, którymi gardzi i których zamierza oszukać, co oznacza, że skutków tej gry nie doświadczyli jedynie ci, którzy stawili Moskwie zbrojny opór i nigdy nie uwierzyli w jej dobrą wolę.
„Schemat psychologiczny” tej operacji można z łatwością odnaleźć w treści wykładu rosyjskiego ambasadora Andriejewa, wygłoszonego 6 marca br.  na Uniwersytecie Warmińsko-Mazurskim w Olsztynie. Ten sam Andriejew, który 9 marca uczestniczył w uroczystości wznowienia działalności Polsko-Rosyjskiej Grupy ds. Trudnych, trzy dni wcześniej stwierdził, że „stosunki między Polską a Rosją są najgorsze od czasu II wojny światowej”, a w swojej „propagitkce” obarczył rząd Prawa i Sprawiedliwości pełną i jedyną odpowiedzialnością za pogorszenie tych stosunków. Zdaniem rosyjskiego dyplomaty - „w Polsce, jak i w wielu innych zachodnich krajach toczy się permanentna „wojna informacyjna” przeciwko Rosji: codziennie słyszymy ostre negatywne wypowiedzi polskich osób oficjalnych pod adresem naszego kraju, z reguły w polskich środkach masowego przekazu ukazują się i są emitowane materiały o Rosji prawie wyłącznie o charakterze krytycznym według zasady „o Rosji albo źle, albo nic”. Polscy partnerzy nie zgadzają się z tym, że w Polsce jest rozpowszechniona rusofobia. Zwracają uwagę na to, że w Polsce dobrze się traktuje Rosjan, lubiana jest kultura rosyjska, łatwo się znajduje wspólny język z Rosjanami, ale rzeczywiście nie lubi się państwa rosyjskiego, z powodu którego Polacy sporo nacierpieli się w przeszłości a które i teraz podobno źle się zachowuje.
Konstrukcja tego wywodu, w całości oparta na łgarstwach i traktowaniu przeciwnika niczym kompletnego idioty, ma oczywiście racjonalny cel. W tej sposób Rosja ustawia się w roli „pokrzywdzonego”, obarcza przeciwnika odpowiedzialnością za wszelkie zło i każe mu wierzyć, że tylko usilne zabiegi o względy Moskwy mogą wpłynąć na poprawę wzajemnych relacji. To strategia znana od czasów carycy Katarzyny i z powodzeniem praktykowana przez sowieckich dyplomatów. Im bardziej Rosja pohańbi, obrazi i oszuka przeciwnika, im mocniej narzuci mu zbrodniczy styl myślenia i głębiej zepchnie w fałsz historii - tym zwiększa się szansa, że przyjmie on postawę niewolniczą i odrzucając „świeże zaszłości historyczne” zacznie poszukiwać jedynej drogi do „ruskiej duszy” - „ucieczki do przodu”.
Czyż prof. Filipowicz, proponując Polakom taki właśnie stopień „pragmatyzmu historycznego”, nie jest  wybitnym znawcą Rosji? I jakie efekty chcą uzyskać politycy PiS stawiając tego znawcę na czele organu przygotowującego nową odsłonę „pojednania”?
W ramach tej samej operacji psychologicznej, ambasador Andriejew, odpowiadając 16 marca br. na pytanie – „Czy strona rosyjska zamierza reaktywować działalność Polsko-Rosyjskiej Grupy do Spraw Trudnych?, stwierdził: „Jeżeli od strony polskiej wpłyną odpowiednie propozycje, będą one rozpatrywane w kontekście ogólnej normalizacji stosunków rosyjsko-polskich, włączając pełnowartościowe kontakty polityczne, oraz z uwzględnieniem tego, czy zostaną zaproponowane dla omówienia aktualne kwestie naszej wspólnej historii mające istotne znaczenie dla postępu dialogu politycznego.”
Ponieważ polski MSZ w odpowiedzi wydał oświadczenie, z którego wynika, że „będzie dążyć do organizacji spotkania plenarnego, które powinno odbyć się w Polsce” - wynik rosyjskiej kombinacji i status, jaki w niej osiągną polscy „gracze”, wydaje się przesądzony.
Czeka nas długi i upokarzający proces zabiegania o łaskawość Moskwy, okupiony licznymi ustępstwami i osłaniany bełkotem „georealistów”. Ludzie, którym nawet w głowie nie powstanie, że Rosja liczy się tylko z silnymi i tylko z pozycji siły można traktować odwiecznego wroga, już znaleźli się w pułapce własnych lęków i ograniczeń.
Najmocniejszym znakiem kontynuacji polityki poprzedników, będzie rażąca asymetria w relacjach polsko-rosyjskich i występowanie z pozycji petenta wobec państwa, które okazuje nam jawną wrogość i pogardę.
Car Mikołaj I miał podobno mawiać, że zna tylko dwa rodzaje Polaków: tych, których nienawidzi i tych, którymi gardzi.
Rządzący III RP „georealiści”, którym zarzut „rusofobii” spędza sen z powiek i skłania do szukania „ucieczki do przodu”, nigdy nie zasłużą na honor ruskiej nienawiści.

          Dumb, Dumber, And Dumbest – What Is The Republican Party Doing?   
What the heck is wrong with the Republicans these days? The once grand old party of Lincoln that had vision and fire is now floundering with series of miscues, inappropriate comments, and actions unbecoming of a representative of the people of the United States.

DUMB
To start, here is President Bush doing his open-mouth-insert-foot foreign policy move when he said on May 2: “So, for example, just as an interesting thought for you, there are 350 million people in India who are classified as middle class. That's bigger than America. Their middle class is larger than our entire population. And when you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food. And so demand is high, and that causes the price to go up.”

What an insensitive thing to say. No wonder the Indians are upset. Instead of accepting them into prosperity and encouraging them to aid the less fortunate, Bush blames them for causing the food prices to go up.

DUMBER
Not to let someone else out do him, a dumber Bush moment was in Israel when he addressed the members of the Knesset on May 15: “Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is -- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

OK, that ‘Nazi’ quote was made by William Edgar Borah, a Republican Senator of Idaho. Perhaps Bush identifies with stubborn and headstrong person that Borah was, traits that Bush has exhibited during his Administration. Moreover, the quote was highly inappropriate in such a setting as the Knesset.

Since 2002, Bush has been aiming comments like this toward North Korea and Iran, two of three nations in the axis of evil: “States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States.”

Since then, Bush is negotiating with North Korea and sending them food aid. Sending aid to a rogue country that professes to have nuclear weapons; why are we negotiating with and sending aid to North Korea while posturing with Iran? One of the two key arguments about Iran is that it has weapons of mass destruction. If this is true, then should we not project the same posture with North Korea?

The second of two key arguments is that Iran supports and sponsors terrorism. OK, then, using this argument, we should be including Syria in the “axis of evil.” After all, our own State Department had labeled Syria as a security threat: “Syria remains a security concern not just because of terrorism, but also because of its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction.” Moreover, Syria “has been on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism since the list's inception in 1979.”

Why should we not negotiate with Iran if we are willing to force Syria to peace negotiation through legislation and hold talks with North Korea? Even the U.S. Military is suggesting that we negotiate with Syria and Iran to bring peace to Iraq. A November 2007 memo from the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College recommends that the U.S. negotiate: “A diplomatic option involving Syria and Iran appears to be worth exploring if done within the context of a broad regional initiative that includes our regional friends and allies as well as our adversaries.”

What is the deal with the double standard? Perhaps someone should remind Bush of his own statement on negotiating with terrorists and radicals. On January 10, 2008, Bush said the following, after meeting with President Abbas.

On negotiation: “Achieving an agreement will require painful political concessions by both sides.”
On negotiation with Terrorists: “On the Palestinian side that includes confronting terrorists and dismantling terrorist infrastructure.” And “No agreement and no Palestinian state will be born of terror.”

President Nixon flew to China in 1972 and met with Chairman Mao and Premier Zhou En Lai in Beijing and, later that year, he went to Moscow and negotiated with Leonid Brezhnev, General Secretary of the Soviet Union on the SALT I treaty. This was a surprise since Nixon was avowed anti-communist and China and Soviet Union were the enemies, the then axis of evil. The U.S. and the Soviet Union fought each other through proxy battles in the Middle East during the Yom Kippur War and the U.S. and China fought each other through proxy battles in Vietnam.

President Regan called Soviet Union the “Evil Empire” but met with Mikhail Gorbachev, the General Secretary of the Soviet Union multiple times to conclude the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

Even President George H. Bush (a.k.a. Bush senior) favored diplomatic solutions with Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Even after Iraq invaded Kuwait, he was still willing to negotiate with Iraqis.

Perhaps, President Bush should have listened to his dad a bit more: “Whose life would be on my hands as the commander-in-chief because I, unilaterally, went beyond the international law, went beyond the stated mission, and said we're going to show our macho? We're going into Baghdad. We're going to be an occupying power — America in an Arab land — with no allies at our side. It would have been disastrous. We don't gain the size of our victory by how many innocent kids running away — even though they're bad guys — that we can slaughter. ... We're American soldiers; we don't do business that way.”

DUMBEST
Now, we come to the dumbest Republican moment: Mike Huckabee. Upon hearing a loud bang during his speech to the NRA, Huckabee quipped: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He's getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he -- he dove for the floor.” (Click here for the video.)

Huckabee is a Southern Baptist Minister. As a man of faith, there is no excuse for such a comment. Even if he had just said “Obama tripped off a chair,” it would have been in very bad taste as it insinuated that Obama was standing on a chair. Now, why would anyone be ‘standing’ on a chair? Was Huckabee insinuating that Obama is uncivilized and therefore standing on a chair? Or was it more insidious?

What’s with the comment about aiming a gun at him and having him diving for the floor? Any reasonable person would dive, run, duck, or do everything possible to avoid a gun pointed at said person. Why would a person be aiming a gun at Obama in the first place? Is that a statement that a man of God would make? If you see the video, Huckabee’s comments came out very naturally. There was no hesitation on his part to comment on the sharp sound at Obama’s expense.

Now, in politics, one can sling mud about an opponent. That’s acceptable. If Huckabee said something along the lines of “That’s Obama slamming the door on American’s right to carry guns”, then Huckabee would have won a very savvy political battle while slinging mud at Obama.

Mr. Huckabee, for a person who has a sharp mind and wits, to have said what you did is inexcusable. Perhaps, sir, you should re-read Leviticus 19:18.

NOTE: I had a difficult time choosing between the “DUMBER” moments since Mr. Bush has offered up a lot of them. However, his Nazi comment won out over his ‘I gave up golf to show my respects for the families of fallen soldiers.’ This is only because his comment about giving up golf was made some time ago.

          Oliver Stone Tells Ron Paul: Edward Snowden Is The "Most American Of Patriots"   

Director Oliver Stone, who’s recently released series “The Putin Interviews” stirred up controversy among liberals who accused him of being a Russian propagandist, appeared on the Liberty Report with former Texas Congressman Ron Paul to discuss the documentary, his views about former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and why the US’s aggressive approach to containing the purported threat posed by Russia has led to a breakdown in relations between the two powers.

Stone said he’s been “interested” in Russia since being raised as a conservative in New York City, claiming that his father instilled a “fear” of Communism and Russians in him at a young age. In the early 1980s, Stone visited the country for the first time as a screenwriter with the idea of interviewing several dissidents. He has returned several times since. In particular, Stone has become interested in the case of Snowden, whom he praised as “the most American of patriots.”

“I was interested in Russia – I went back into the 2000s. The Snowden story occupied me. And of course, it’s so ironic that he the most American of patriots is living in Moscow because he has to. It’s the only country in the world that would give him asylum -  in other words it’s the only country in the word that can deny the US what it wants which is Snowden.”

 

“[Putin] explained to me that Russians wanted an extradition treaty with the US for years, but nothing doing, because there are a lot of Russian criminals in America who stole money from Russia. He did nothing wrong in Russian terms so they gave him asylum - now its 3 years 5 years whatever its going to be. I wish Ed well I really do.”

Stone tried explaining Putin’s point of view regarding the breakdown in relations between the US and Russia that has occurred since the end of the George W Bush presidency, saying the US’s decision to install new ABM defenses have greatly unsettled Russians, who see their installation as an encroachment.

“We come around now to this period in 2017…for some reason an improving US-Russia relationship deteriorated completely. Mr. Putin in his interview goes into the ABM treaty, he goes into the expansion of NATO and the American support of terrorism in the caucuses while the Russians were helping them in Afghanistan.”

 

“That’s an important issue for them. Many American lives were saved. I think you talked about those three issues NATO, ABM, the support of terrorism.”

The ABM installations, in particular, are threatening a policy of “nuclear parity” that has existed since the Soviet Union, Stone said, adding that the notion that Russia is a threat to the US is “insanity,” given Russia's weaker economy and less powerful military.

“ABM destroys the nuclear parity that existed. When Mr. Bush tore that up in 2001, that was a signal that the US wanted nuclear superiority, or a first strike option.”

Stone also shared a story about watching the movie “Dr. Strangelove” with Putin, who he said was greatly moved.

“I showed him the movie Dr. Strangelove…and he watched it very serious about it. He said this movie was very accurate of that time and it’s still accurate today.”

Circling back to the issue of nuclear deterrents, Stone said he’s worried that rising tensions around the world could trigger a “nuclear confrontation.”

“I’m saying I have reached that age when I am not really concerned about what happens to me but… it’s not just about the US, but about the whole planet and I feel a nuclear confrontation, an accident, could happen tomorrow. But you put ABMs in Poland and Romania - that’s a gigantic mistake.”

 

“An ABM can be converted overnight from a defensive missile to an offensive missile. They’re surrounded from the North the East and the West by US missiles and we don’t seem to realize it.”

Stone says he’s “scared for America,” explaining that many US citizens prefer to blindly accept media spin that’s favorable to the US establishment, without questioning it, or trying to understand Russia’s point of view.

“It’s a good thing I went through JFK when I was younger…there’s been a lot of controversy around my movies. I’m scared not for myself because I’m at that age, they can’t destroy me anymore, but I’m scared for America, I’m afraid they’ve lost their sense. I’m afraid there’s a lack of foresight and leadership.”

Stone denied allegations that he provided questions to Putin ahead of time, and said the four-part documentary is a great opportunity for Americans to learn more about Russia’s enigmatic leader.

“Over four hours you can listen to a man who’s been there 16 years talk about the balance of power. We live in this spin cycle like a laundry every day it’s a crisis and I think that’s the way we like it, it creates more money but this is not a view of the world.”

          NATO, a monstrous institution    
NATO, a monstrous institution 

By Karel van Wolferen (June 3 2017)

Their anxiety about the future of NATO, recently on full display again when the American president was in Europe, could not be bettered as a measure of the incapacity of Europe’s top politicians to guide their continent and represent its populations. Through its provocations of Moscow, NATO systematically helps increase the risk of a military confrontation. By thus sabotaging its declared purpose of serving collective security for the countries on either side of the Atlantic, it erases its fundamental reason for being and right to exist.

Grasping these facts ought be enough to fuel moves aimed at quickly doing away with NATO. But it is terrible for more and easily overlooked reasons.

NATO’s survival prevents the political entity that is the European Union from becoming a significant global presence for reasons other than its economic weight. If you cannot have a defence policy of your own you also deprive yourself of a foreign policy. Without a substantive foreign policy, Europe does not show anything that anyone might consider ‘a face’ to the world. Without such a face to the outside, the inside cannot come to terms about what it stands for, and substitutes meaningless platitudes for answers to the question as to why it should exist in the first place.

NATO is an example of an institution that has gotten completely out of hand through European complacency, intellectual laziness, and business opportunism. As a security alliance it requires a threat. When the one that was believed to exist during the Cold War disappeared, a new one had to be found. Forged for defence against what was once believed to be an existential threat, it only began actually deploying its military might after that threat had disappeared, for its illegal war against Serbia. Once it had jumped that hurdle, it was encouraged to continue jumping toward imagined global threats. Its history since the demise of its original adversary has been deplorable, as its European member states were made party to war crimes resulting from actions at Washington’s behest for objectives that have made a dead letter of international law. It has turned some European governments into liars when they told their populations that sending troops to Afghanistan was for the purpose of assorted humanitarian purposes like reconstructing that country, rather than fighting a war against Taleban forces intent on reclaiming their country from American occupation. Afghanistan did not, as was predicted at the time, turn into the graveyard for NATO to come to rest, next to the British Empire, the Soviet Union and – farther back – Alexander the Great. Having survived Afghanistan, NATO continued to play a significant role in the destruction of Gaddafi's Libya, and in the destruction of parts of Syria through covertly organising, financing, and arming Isis forces for the purpose of overthrowing the Assad government. And it continues to serve as a cover for the war making elements in Britain and France. America’s coup in the Ukraine in 2014, which resulted in a crisis in relations with Russia, gave NATO a new lease on life as it helped create entirely uncalled for hysterical fear of Russia in Poland and the Baltic states. NATO repudiates things that we are said to hold dear. It is an agent of corruption of thought and action in both the United States and Europe. Through propaganda that distorts the reality of the situation in the areas where it operates, and perennial deceit about its true objectives, NATO has substituted a now widely shared false picture of geopolitical events and developments for one that, even if haphazard, used to be pieced together by independent reporters for mainstream media whose own tradition and editors encouraged discovery of facts. This propaganda relies to a large extent on incessant repetition for its success. It can generally not be traced to NATO as a source of origin because it is being outsourced to a well-funded network of public relations professionals.

The Atlantic Council is NATO's primary PR organization. It is connected with a web of think tanks and NGO’s spread throughout Europe, and very generous to journalists who must cope with a shrinking and insecure job environment. This entity is well-versed in Orwellian language tricks, and for obvious reasons must mischaracterise NATO itself as an alliance instead of a system of vassalage. Alliance presupposes shared purposes, and it cannot be Europe's purpose to be controlled by the United States, unless we now accept that a treasonous European financial elite must determine the last word on Europe's future.

An influential policy deliberation NGO known as the International Crisis Group (ICG), is one of the organizations linked with the Atlantic Council. It operates as a serious and studious outfit, carrying an impressive list of relatively well-known names of associates, which studies areas of the world harbouring conflicts or about-to-be conflicts that could undermine world peace and stability. Sometimes this group does offer information that is germane to a situation, but its purpose has in effect become one of making the mainstream media audience view the situation on the ground in Syria, or the ins and outs of North Korea, or the alleged dictatorship in Venezuela, and so on, through the eyeballs of the consensus creators in American foreign policy.

NATO repudiates political civilisation. It is disastrous for European intellectual life as it condemns European politicians and the thinking segment of the populations in its member states to be locked up in what may be described as political kindergarten, where reality is taught in terms of the manichean division between bad guys and superheroes. While Europe’s scholars, columnists, TV programmers and sophisticated business commentators rarely pay attention to NATO as an organization, and are generally oblivious to its propaganda function, what it produces condemns them to pay lip service to the silliest geopolitical fantasies.

NATO is not only terrible for Europe, it is very bad for the United States and the world in general, for it has handed to America's elites important tools aiding its delusional aim of fully dominating the planet. This is because NATO provides the most solid external support for sets of assumptions that allegedly lend a crucial moral dimension to America's warmaking. NATO does not exist for the sake of indispensable European military prowess, which mildly described has not been impressive. It exists as legal justification for Washington to keep nuclear weapons and military bases in Europe. It obviously also exists as support for America’s military- industrial complex. But its moral support ought to be considered its most significant contribution. Without NATO, the conceptual structure of a 'West' with shared principles and aims would collapse. NATO was once the organisation believed to ensure the continued viability of the Western part what used to be known as the 'free world'. Such connotations linger, and lend themselves to political exploitation. The 'free world' has since the demise of the Soviet Union not been much invoked. But 'the West' is still going strong, along with the notion of Western values and shared principles, with ‘the good’ in the form of benevolent motives automatically assumed to be on its side. This gives the powers that be in Washington a terrific claim in the realm of widely imagined moral aspects of geopolitical reality. They have inherited the mantle of the leader of the 'free world' and 'the West', and since there has not been a peep of dissension about this from the other side of the Atlantic, the claim appears true and legitimate in the eyes of the world and the parties concerned.

In the meantime the earlier American claim to speak and act on behalf of the free world was broadened and seemingly depoliticised by a substitute claim of speaking and acting on behalf of the ‘international community’. There is of course no such thing, but that doesn't bother editors who keep invoking it when some countries or the bad guys running them do things that are not to Washington's liking. Doing away with NATO would pull the rug from under the ‘international community’. Such a development would then reveal the United States, with its current political system and priorities in international affairs, as a criminal power and the major threat to peace in the world. I can hear an objection that without this resonation of moral claims the activities serving the ‘full spectrum dominance’ aim would have been carried out anyway. If you think so, and if you can stand reading again what the neocons were producing between 9/11 and the invasion of Iraqi in 2003, subtract all references to moral clarity and the necessity for the United States to serve as moral beacon for the world from that literature, and you will see that preciously little argument remains for American warmaking that ensued.

The spinelessness of the average European politician has added up to huge encouragement of the United States in its post-Cold War military adventurism. With forceful reminders from Europe about what those much vaunted supposedly shared political principles actually stood for, American rhetoric could not have been the same. Strong European condemnation of the shredding of the UN Charter, and the jettisoning of the principles adopted at the Nuremberg trials, would have made it much more difficult for George W Bush, Dick Cheney, and the neocons to go where blind fanaticism and hubris, with imagined economic advantage, took them. Perhaps more importantly, it might have given a relatively weak American protest movement the necessary added energy to rise to the level of effectiveness once attained by the

anti-Vietnam activists as they imprinted themselves on the political culture of the 60s and 70s. European dissent might not have halted but could have slowed the transformation of much of the mainstream media into neocon propaganda assets.

As it is, NATO exists today in a realm of discourse in which revered post-World War II liberal conditions and practices are still believed to exist. It is an apolitical and ahistorical realm determined by hubris and misplaced self-confidence, in which powers that have utterly altered these practices and negated its positive aspects are not acknowledged. It is a realm in which America's pathological condition of requiring an enemy as a source of everlasting profit is not acknowledged. It is a realm in which America's fatuous designs for complete control over the world is not acknowledged. It is a realm of foreign policy illusions.

NATO is supposed to guard putative Western values that in punditry observations have something to do with what the Enlightenment has bestowed on Western culture. But it deludes staunch NATO supporters, who cannot bring themselves to contemplate the possibility that what they have long trusted to be an agent of protection, has in fact become a major force that destroys those very qualities and principles.

There is a further more tangible political/legal reason why NATO is monstrous. It is steered by nonelected powers in Washington, but is not answerable to identifiable entities within the American military system. It is not answerable to any of the governing institutions of the European Union. Its centre in Brussels exists effectively outside the law. Its relations with ‘intelligence agencies’ and their secret operations remain opaque. Who is doing what and where are all questions to which no clear, legally actionable, information is made available.

NATO has thereby become a tool of intimidation lacking any compatibility with democratic political organisation. An autocrat aspiring to unfettered rule with which to operate anywhere in the world would find in NATO the ideal institutional arrangements. All this should be of our utmost concern. Because all this means that NATO is now one of the world’s most horrible organizations that at the same time has become so politically elusive, apparently, that there is no European agent with enough of a grip on it to make it disappear. 



          UNESCO to court controversy with World Heritage picks   
The Old City of Hebron in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and a rare collection of futuristic buildings in Eritrea are among sites hoping to gain protected status from UNESCO when it meets in Poland from Sunday. The meeting of the World Heritage Committee of the UN's scientific and cultural body in Krakow will also examine concerns about high-rise buildings that threaten the historic centre of Vienna. Seven natural sites, 26 cultural sites and one mixed site could be added to the list of more than 1,000 places which have protected status during the July 2-12 meeting. Inclusion in the coveted list is often a source of national pride and can increase tourist numbers but it can also trigger rows and diplomatic friction. Israel has already protested at the inclusion among the hopefuls of the Old City of Hebron deep in the West Bank, home to the imposing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Georgina Beyer and Transgender Politicians   
Georgina Beyer is a transwoman whose achievements have been extraordinary. Beyer is a New Zealand institution and the world's first transsexual Member of Parliament. But for those of you not from these shores, it's worth adding a little background.

Beyer was in office when I first came to New Zealand. What struck me about New Zealand (as I mentioned here on this blog) is what a masculine country it is. Men here are real men: they drive trucks, they shoot animals, they drink beer. And you can keep your other namby-pamby ball games: the national sport here is rugby. In fact, I stated here without irony that I have found what I consider to be the pinnacle of masculine behaviour here.

And yet, behind that façade there are some curious observations. New Zealand was the first country to give women the vote, implementing true universal suffrage in 1893 (it took the US until 1920, and the UK languished until 1928). Wikipedia describes New Zealand as considered "one of the world's most stable and well-governed nations".
Wikipedia: Between March 2005 and August 2006 New Zealand became the only country in the world in which all the highest offices in the land (Head of State, Governor-General, Prime Minister, Speaker of the House and Chief Justice) were occupied simultaneously by women.
And one of my other heroes, Richard O'Brien, author of the Rocky Horror Show, grew up here and is now a citizen. For more of my reflections on New Zealand, read my article about him.

Georgina Beyer
So it's in this unusual environment that we find Georgina Beyer. Born in 1957, she had a turbulent and unhappy childhood. Her natural parents divorced when she was five years old. Her mother soon remarried. Beyer's stepfather was a lawyer (whose surname she took), but the marriage was not a happy one. Beyer was sent to boarding school where, feeling rejected, she attempted to take her own life. She left school at sixteen to pursue a career in acting.

Beyer always looked feminine, and was sometimes taken for a girl, which made her feel "far more comfortable". She moved to Wellington, where she met members of the gay and drag scene for the first time, including Carmen Rupe. "It was as if I had arrived home". She began to work as a cabaret artist and occasionally a prostitute, and took drugs. During this time, she was attacked and raped by a group of men.

She underwent full sex reassignment surgery in 1984, at the age of about 27. She began to have success as an actress, but was usually typecast as transsexual or transvestite characters, and she had difficulty finding work. Eventually she enrolled in a government-sponsored training scheme in the small country town of Carterton.


Her Honour the Mayor of Carterton
Carterton, a small "redneck" country town, predominantly white, was slightly taken aback by the presence of a Maori transsexual woman. But it's clear that Beyer is a person of extraordinary abilities, and her openness, ability, integrity, and determination, soon won over the locals. Friends suggested that she stand for election to Carterton District Council, to some outrage from the standing members, and she was eventually elected Mayor, in 1995, at the age of 38.

A natural leader, outspoken and fearless, and with great experience to draw on, the new Mayor of Carterton was a great success, and did considerable good for the town, winning the hearts of its inhabitants, who are still very proud of her. She was approached by the NZ Labour Party to stand for election to Parliament for the entire region, the Wairarapa. She won by a landslide, taking the seat from the expected favourite NZ National candidate.

She served as a member of Parliament until 2007. For much of that time, Helen Clark was the Prime Minister. Since resigning from Parliament, Beyer's political career has been impaired because of health issues, and she is currently awaiting a kidney transplant.

A tribute evening was arranged for Beyer by friends and family in November 2013.

Beyer agreed to be interviewed by me, but unfortunately, after I sent her my questions, she suffered a bout of illness. Since that time, she hasn't been responding to my emails. I waited several months for her to get well, and sent some reminders during that time, but there has been no response. She did, however, approve the text above, and the images I selected, for publication in this blog.
Vladimir Luxuria

Naturally if I am able to make contact with her again, I will keep you posted about the result. The NZ media reported that Beyer had stood as a candidate for the Mana Movement in the most recent General Election in this country, earlier this year.

Beyer published her autobiography, Change for the better: the story of Georgina Beyer with Random House in Auckland in 1999. A TV documentary about her life, Georgie Girl, was made in 2001, and you may be able to see some of it here or even here (though it may be unavailable outside NZ).

In research for this article, I came across the story of Vladimir Luxuria, the second transsexual member of parliament in the world. Luxuria held office in Italy from 2006-2008 for the constituency of Lazio. Luxuria lives as a woman but has not had sex-reassignment surgery, and (according to Wikipedia) is legally a male.

I wonder who will be the third?

Addendum 23rd October 2014

Nikki Sinclaire
Well, that took less than 24 hours! My thanks to Sam for bringing to my attention Nikki Sinclaire, a British parliamentarian, who held a seat in the European Parliament from 2009 until June 2014, for the West Midlands constituency.

According to Wikipedia, Sinclaire underwent sex reassignment surgery at the age of 23. She came out as a lesbian in 2004 at the age of 36. However, she only publicly revealed that she was born a boy in 2013, which means she was elected without anyone knowing of her trans status.

In 2013, she released her autobiography, entitled Never Give Up, published by Junius Press. Sinclaire's personal website can be found here.

Okay, so my question is now: who will be the fourth?

===
Addendum 28th October 2014

Anna Grodzka
Now I am beginning to feel foolish. My thanks to Carole Fraser for pointing out that there is already a fourth, Anna Grodzka, who was elected to the Sejm, Poland's lower house of parliament, in 2011, representing the anti-clerical Palikot party. She is still in office, although has switched to the Green Party earlier this year.

Details about Grodzka are somewhat sketchy. Wikipedia reports that she transitioned in 2009, having sex-reassignment surgery in Thailand. Grodzka's own website seems to be blank apart from a background.

The Polish Wikipedia article (using online translation software) says she was formerly married and has an adult son. She has a degree in clinical psychology from the University of Warsaw, and has been in the military, and worked in publishing and in radio.

It's interesting to compare these four. They seem to have very little in common. Beyer transitioned at a young age, but was very open about her transition and was elected very publicly (mentioning her transition in her maiden speech in parliament). Sinclaire, who transitioned at a similarly young age, told no-one and only came out recently, after leaving office. Grodzka (aged 60) transitioned much later in life, and was elected as a transwoman. And Luxuria hasn't transitioned at all!

Stu Rasmussen
Apart from their interests in politics, there seems little to unite these women, other than them all being male-to-female. I wonder if the fifth transgender politician will be a female-to-male?

Addendum 29th October 2014

My thanks to Ralph for drawing my attention to Stu Rasmussen, mayor of the town of Silverton, Oregon. Rasmussen (aged about 66) prefers male pronouns, but has breast implants and lives full-time as a woman.

If I were going to be strict, I would say that Rasmussen doesn't "count", since he hasn't been elected to a nationwide governing body such as a parliament or a senate. Nonetheless, he is clearly a transgender politician, and I think he (along with the others on this page) deserves a considerable amount of congratulation for standing in public office while being transgendered (and seemingly being successful enough in post that he was re-elected after coming out). It's worth looking at Rasmussen's website here.

Keep them coming, folks!

Addendum 10th May 2016

Geraldine Roman
Over in the Philippines, known for their traditional Roman Catholicism, Geraldine Roman has just been elected as congresswoman for the 1st district of Bataan. Roman (49) has been living as a woman for 22 years. She has a degree in journalism from a university in Spain and is married to a Spanish citizen.

Roman comes from a politically-influential family. She holds the same office that her mother vacated, representing the Liberal Party. Both her parents are politicians, and are supportive of Roman's openly transgender status. In the Philippines, divorce, abortion, and same-sex marriage are illegal, and transsexual people are forbidden to change their name and legal sex.

As of yesterday, Roman didn't have a Wikipedia page. But she does now! Meanwhile, a good article about her can be found here on the BBC.

Addendum 7th December 2016

This BBC article mentions Tamara Adrian of Venezuela. Adrian was sworn into the National Assembly of Venezuela in 2015 using her male birth name, since in Venezuela it is illegal to change sex.

I am very good and don't deserve the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.


Here is a video I made Waltzing Matilda

I was asked to do a Banjo Patterson Poem. I thought I had done this, but I hadn't. This was made so as to tell the story, rather than sing the song.
===
"Waltzing Matilda" is Australia's most widely known bush ballad. A country folk song, the song has been referred to as "the unofficial national anthem of Australia"
http://conservativeweasel.blogspot.com/2011/12/waltzing-matilda.html

Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabongs,
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree;
And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."


Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.


Up came the jumbuck to drink at the waterhole,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee;
And he sang as he put him away in his tucker-bag,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."


Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.


Up came the squatter a-riding his thoroughbred;
Up came the policeman - one, two, and three.
"Whose is the jumbuck you've got in the tucker-bag?
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with we."


Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.


Up sprang the swagman and jumped into the waterhole,
Drowning himself by the Coolibah tree;
And his voice can be heard as it sings in the billabongs,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."


Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag.
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Written 1895, first published as sheet music 1903.

 The political despatch of Boris Johnson, who had led the successful Brexit campaign, was as surprising as the success of the campaign. The Notting Hill set have eaten their own. David Cameron finally fell, having never managed to appear strongly conservative. But his stable mate of Gove had sided with Johnson as the face of Brexit, and then ripped support away from Johnson and denounced Johnson as being too identifiably the face of Brexit, and unable to unite the conservative party. In fairness, Gove could not unite the party either. Gove has ambition and ability, as does Theresa May. There are echoes of the Metherell affair in NSW when two friends, Terry Metherell and Nick Greiner ran afoul of political perfection and Greiner was subsequently unfairly forced to resign as Premier of NSW. One incompetent independent of the time who unfairly attacked Greiner was Tony Windsor. Windsor is still trying to hurt good conservative candidates. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation came into being on this day in 1932. It is a bureaucratic mess. But it isn't the worst mess on this day. In 1766, a young French nobleman, Jean-François de la Barre who was tortured and beheaded before his body was burned on a pyre. Also burned, pinned to his body, was a work of Voltaire. The crime the twenty year old man committed was said to be failing to bow to a religious procession, but the unpleasant truth is that he was a protestant in a catholic land. The ABC was created in the hope that the left leaning press in Australia would be balanced by state body which reported facts, not bias. The reality is that the ABC has never been balanced. 

Greece has defaulted on her IMF loan. Soon she will vote to approve or deny the imposition of austerity. But she has already done so, and her government ran on the lie that Greece didn't need austerity. Now the EU has a choice, but it isn't really a choice. Greece needs to be booted from the EU as a lesson in humility. It should never be the case that a nation employs people without paying them. The civilised world abhors slavery. 
From 2014
Today is an extraordinary day. The birthday of Semmelweis (1818) whose work as a physician gave rise to the legal term "Clean Hands". Or Dorothea Mackellar (1885) who beautifully described Australia in poetry. But for all the amazing wonderful things about today that I could point to, my mind is drawn to the infamous act of cowardice and butchery in which the three bodies of children of Israel were unearthed following their abduction. There is a cowardly dismissal of Middle East events involving Israel by those who do not know or care, that there is blood on both sides. But that is not the case. There is no analog for what Israel does that excuses this murder. It is inexcusable, and those who are responsible need to be brought to justice, and those who excuse should be discredited. 

Three boys went to a religious function and were on their way home when they were abducted. They were not warriors. Targeting them was an act of terror. One boy had been able to use his phone to let people know he had been abducted. That call was the last anyone heard him alive. It is not too hard to follow the mindset of the terrorists, but remarkably, one mother of one suspect has claimed she is proud of her son for doing it. I want religious authorities of the perpetrators to denounce the activity. If that mum has excused the activity, I want her discredited. Saddam Hussein had paid money to family of suicide bombers. If her people are serious about wanting peace, perhaps they will meet similar justice as was applied to Saddam. 

One imagines the terrorists alerted to the phone call told the boys that they would have to die and not merely be hostages because of it. They probably did their best to torture the boys, and blame them, before killing them. But the boys had done nothing wrong. Earlier this year, Obama had forced Israel to release terrorists who had killed, from jail for peace. No peace has been forthcoming from those terrorist supporters. One of the boys was a US citizen .. someone Obama has sworn an oath to protect and serve. But instead, the US President has paid US money to support a terrorist administration. Maybe Hamas will deny the activity, they have not yet, instead accusing Israel of overstating the crime. The UN cannot endorse this crime, and if they fail to act on it, they need to be dismantled. 

Three boys kidnapped, tortured and murdered by terrorists. Who dares support that? 

The incident is not isolated in Middle East terrorist history. The second intifada, which began after Bill Clinton embarrassed Arafat over a Monica Special cigar transformed a lynching of two Israeli security detail who had been illegally lured and detained by so called Palestinian authorities. This incident is on a par. A crime against humanity linked by successive Democrat party US Presidents.

Some things should not happen, but they do. Good news about unemployment should be oxygen for the federal government. Unemployment is down around 5.5%. That should mean that the government will have good returns from income tax and production. There are lots of good things the federal government is doing, but the oxygen thief that is Malcolm Turnbull and his crony mates of Julie Bishop and Christopher Pyne are robbing the government of oxygen. Mr Abbott can help and does. Take an example of a few words Mr Abbott said at a recent IPA event 

"We have an abundance of energy - but the world's highest power prices; an abundance of land - and property prices to rival Hong Kong's; some of the world's smartest people - yet with school rankings behind Kazakhstan.

We need to make Australia work again - because our country, plainly, is not working as it should. We are letting ourselves down. We are not what we should be; and we know it."


Mr Abbott generously gave his time to talk to IPA members, and not just speak his thoughts and run. And Mr Abbott gives oxygen which the government needs. 

In 350, Roman usurper Nepotianus, of the Constantinian dynasty, was defeated and killed in Rome by troops of the usurper Magnentius.

In 1934, the Night of the Long KnivesAdolf Hitler's violent purge of his political rivals in Germany, took place. 1936, Emperor Haile Selassie of Abyssinia appealed for aid to the League of Nations against Italy's invasion of his country. 1937, the world's first emergency telephone number999, was introduced in London. 1963, Ciaculli massacre: a car bomb, intended for Mafia boss Salvatore Greco, killed seven police officers and military personnel near Palermo

In 1971, the crew of the Soviet Soyuz 11 spacecraft were killed when their air supply escaped through a faulty valve. It is difficult to overstate the tragedy. The mission to dock with a space station and stay there for weeks was successful. They kept fit on a treadmill twice a day. But on re entry, a pressure valve no one could access was left open in space. They died in seconds on re entry.

Here is a video I made Up Hill

Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 -- 29 December 1894) was an English poet who wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children's poems. She is best known for her long poem Goblin Market, her love poem Remember, and for the words of the Christmas carol In the Bleak Midwinter.

Does the road wind up-hill all the way? 
   Yes, to the very end. 
Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? 
   From morn to night, my friend. 

But is there for the night a resting-place? 
   A roof for when the slow dark hours begin. 
May not the darkness hide it from my face? 
   You cannot miss that inn. 

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night? 
   Those who have gone before. 
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight? 
   They will not keep you standing at that door. 

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak? 
   Of labour you shall find the sum. 
Will there be beds for me and all who seek? 
   Yea, beds for all who come.

 It is possible that the ALP will win the election on Saturday and that should scare people. Because the DelCon movement have advocated splitting the senate vote and sending a message to those remaining idiots who installed Turnbull over Abbott, the senate is likely to be ALP friendly too. Turnbull's foolish decision to go for a double dissolution means that all of Abbott's gains get wiped out. So as a service to the community, The Conservative Voice will list reasons to not vote for the ALP or their proxies who call themselves independents. 
  • The AWU corruption scandal which brought on the double dissolution. Shorten is heavily involved in his time as union leader. Also Fair Work has been set up badly and is not an effective guard. To give the ALP the reigns of power again is to give in to another term of ineffective workplace relations. That will damage Australia badly, crippling her businesses who employ people.
  • Bad for the economy, promising to spend over $120 billion dollars on two policies alone, neither of which are effective. But then promising to balance the budget too. And yet admitting to lying outrageously about Medicare because they feel that is clever politics. 
  • Border Security. ALP have killed people with expensive bad policy.
  • Too close to extremist Muslims, too distant from people who are good.
  • Hostile to church interests, but not a friend to gays either. 
  • NSW Corruption with ICAC still not taking on the majority of corrupt ALP members from their 16 years in power. 
  • Victorian corruption, with jobs for the union mates and the destruction of CFA volunteer firefighters. ALP have killed people with incompetence in recent years. 
  • Queensland corruption and South Australian too, all related to entrenched ALP that are supported by independents. 
For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.  
=== from 2015 ===
Greece will default on her repayments today. The left wing Greek Government has promised her people that they can default and stay in the European Union. As if people can work but not be paid, so long as they aren't Greek. And that is wrong. The cost of the lie of the Greek government is a nervous world market which devalues because the stakes are so high. Europe should boot Greece. The campaign against austerity is dangerous and should not be accepted. There will be market pain if Greece leaves the union, but it is nothing to the pain if others feel that austerity can be rejected with impunity.  

Joe Hockey's defamation win is only a slap on the wrist for the partisan media who would willingly cut their own throats to secure a win against conservatives. There was no need for the personal attack of the defamatory headline, but it was made for no other purpose but to attack the treasurer. And if the Fairfax press had any credibility they would pay the money and issue an apology. Instead they are un-penitent and are examining the possibility of appealing. One hopes they appeal and lose badly.
From 2014
The 1876 election had seen the election of GOP Hayes based on a compromise. The military was pulled out of the South, ending reconstruction efforts and toppling state GOP governments. White Democrats would make the south one party and would isolate and prey upon African Americans. But in terms of populism, that was ok. Then James was elected and what followed was to James' credit in 1881, and a tragedy too. James was a GOP man too, but he had better control and discipline than Hayes. James Garfield would reform the US public service and purge corruption from the post office. He appointed african americans to prominent federal positions, promoted civil rights and education as a means to a free and fair electorate. And then, two hundred days into office, he was assassinated by a nut job. 

The nut job was like any other extreme right wing idiot that ever lived. Born in illinois, to an ethnically French family of Huguenot, Guiteau had been given $1000 and instructed to study in New York by his father. He had listening issues, and struggled as a student. He dropped out and joined a religious cult, but struggled to find his place. He went to Boston and got an easily achieved legal license, but was a failure as a barrister, managing to enrage most of his clients. Next, Guiteau turned to theology and stole material from the cult from which he had been booted. Then he decided to support GOP people. He begged Hayes for political favours, and then Garfield. Garfield had opposed corruption. So Guiteau decided to shoot him. 

Guiteau chose a pearl handled revolver for reasons of posterity. He picked his moment, approached Garfield from behind and shot him twice. Garfield would probably have survived but for the medical treatment he received by doctors that had not sterilised their surgery equipment or hands, as would be routine ten years later. It took eleven weeks for Garfield to die. In defence, Guiteau would claim that he was not guilty because "The doctors killed him, I just shot him." The defence failed, and so on this day in 1882, nine months after the shooting, Guiteau was hung. On the morning of his hanging, Guiteau wrote a poem. 

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy.

I love the Lordy with all my soul,

Glory hallelujah!

And that is the reason I am going to the Lord,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lord.


I saved my party and my land,



Glory hallelujah!

But they have murdered me for it,

And that is the reason I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy!

I wonder what I will do when I get to the Lordy,

I guess that I will weep no more

When I get to the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah!

I wonder what I will see when I get to the Lordy,

I expect to see most glorious things,

Beyond all earthly conception

When I am with the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am with the Lord.

He was the only right wing extremist to assassinate a President of the US. He seemed incapable of rational thought, his application of poetry on a par with another right wing terrorist (McVey) who claimed he was the captain of his soul. Guiteau's case was one of the first attempts at an insanity defence in the US for a high profile case. At nine months he was the longest survivor of an assassination of a US President.

I am publishing a book called Bread of Life: January. 

Bread of Life is a daily bible quote with a layman's understanding of the meaning. I give one quote for each day, and also a series of personal stories illustrating key concepts eg Who is God? What is a miracle? Why is there tragedy?

January is the first of the anticipated year-long work of thirteen books. One for each month and the whole year. It costs to publish. It (Kindle version) should retail at about $2US online, but the paperback version would cost more, according to production cost.
If you have a heart for giving, I fundraise at gofund.me/27tkwuc

Taken Back in Time With 'One Night in New York'

I'm a sucker for simple videos like this and can really appreciate what goes into making them. As I strive to jump more into video, it is interesting to stay tuned and watch what other people create to help give me ideas for future work. The coolest thing to me about a video or even a photo is the mood or feel it can convey. A lot of the video work I do, I focus on sharp focus, straight lines, clean shots, accurate color, cutting to music and a few other little things. I mainly shoot real estate videos, but it is nice to have the freedom to shoot whatever I want, however I want rather than following my standard rules for shooting real estate. I have been messing around more with video and hope to come out with something to show from it soon enough!

          Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag   

Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag

Date: 1. juli 2017

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

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

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

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

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

Il capolavoro di David Icke
Un libro che cambierà il mondo

Tra manipolazione occulta e stirpi ibride non umane, David Icke ci conduce al risveglio della consapevolezza.

David Icke, l’autore più controverso al mondo, ha trascorso l’ultimo quarto di secolo indagando i segreti dell’Universo e cercando di discernere le forze occulte che manipolano la nostra realtà. Ciò che prima era considerato ridicolo e superato viene ora finalmente riconosciuto come autorevole, così come Icke, figura fino a qualche tempo fa ridicolizzata, è oggi considerato un precursore dei nostri tempi.

In quest’opera di 435.000 parole, 1.000 pagine e più di 800 illustrazioni, Icke ci regala una vita di ricerche e intuizioni riguardo alla nostra realtà simulata, all’universo olografico e alle forze occulte non-umane che stanno manipolando la vita umana attraverso stirpi consanguinee di ibridi che riducono la nostra società in uno stato orwelliano di totale controllo e sottomissione.

Ciò che Icke illustra, attraverso una vasta gamma di soggetti, persone ed eventi, sempre interconnessi tra loro, è quella consapevolezza che fornisce all’umanità gli strumenti per fermare il dilagare di questo incubo e per riportare il mondo a ciò che era originariamente e che sarà di nuovo: un luogo d’amore, armonia, pace e consapevolezza illuminata.


          Guida alla Cospirazione Globale    

È tornato David Icke
una delle voci più significative della controinformazione

Studioso di storia segreta e cospirazione, famoso giornalista e conferenziere, David Icke è l’autore di famosi bestseller come E la Verità vi renderà liberi Il Segreto più nascosto.

Il suo nuovo libro è La Guida di David Icke alla Cospirazione Globale, 50.000 copie vendute in lingua inglese: un’opera unica e straordinaria. 
Oltre 600 pagine ricche di riferimenti storici, biografici e simbolici. Un capolavoro che connette tutti i punti e rivela i legami nascosti tra personaggi, eventi e tematiche che apparentemente non hanno nulla in comune tra loro, e che dimostra come tutto, alla fine, si ricolleghi perfettamente.

La cospirazione globale con cui si intende imporre uno stato orwelliano, non è pura “teoria”. Al contrario, è un fatto supportato da una serie infinita di prove e, oggi, anche dall’esperienza quotidiana. Una rete di famiglie imparentate tra loro, la cui origine risale alle epoche più remote, sta manipolando gli eventi attraverso i propri politici-fantoccio e personaggi di rappresentanza, prodigandosi per instaurare una tirannia a lungo preparata.

Ma i giorni del loro anonimato sono ormai terminati. David Icke ha fatto luce sul Popolo delle Ombre e ha messo fine a quella segretezza che è così essenziale al loro successo.


Chi siamo? 
Dove ci troviamo? 
Perché il mondo è così com’è?


Solo quando ogni punto sarà stato connesso all’altro, lo stupefacente quadro generale apparirà. E noi non potremo fare altro che rimanere sbalorditi mentre, pagina dopo pagina, Icke ci rivela la verità di ogni cosa, dagli avvenimenti della storia antica all’Internet olografico che governa la nostra realtà.

Questo è il libro che risveglierà la massa, e finalmente rivelerà in modo indubitabile l’incredibile livello di controllo che una forza occulta esercita sull’umanità da migliaia di anni. Il libro mostra come la nostra realtà venga manipolata tramite una conoscenza avanzata ma nascosta, così che noi siamo praticamente schiavi che credono di essere liberi.


Il commento di un lettore

Tutta la storia nel suo insieme è chiaramente e sinteticamente spiegata in modo trasparente e di facile lettura. Vi garantisco che, pur conoscendo benissimo i libri che David ha scritto finora, questo è un concentrato eccellente di tutto il suo lavoro. È l’unico libro che le persone confuse, spaventate e in cerca di risposte devono assolutamente leggere.

          Oliver Stone Tells Ron Paul: Edward Snowden Is The "Most American Of Patriots"   
Oliver Stone Tells Ron Paul: Edward Snowden Is The Most American Of Patriots Director Oliver Stone, who’s recently released series “The Putin Interviews” stirred up controversy among liberals who* accused him of being a Russian propagandist,* appeared on the Liberty Report with former Texas Congressman Ron Paul to discuss the documentary, his views about former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and why the US’s aggressive approach to containing the purported threat posed by Russia has led to a breakdown in relations between the two powers.

Stone said he’s been “interested” in Russia since being raised as a conservative in New York City, claiming that *his father instilled a “fear” of Communism and Russians in him at a young age.* In the early 1980s, Stone visited the country for the first time as a screenwriter with the idea of interviewing several dissidents. He has returned several times since. *In particular, Stone has become interested in the case of Snowden, whom he praised as “the most American of patriots.”*



“I was interested in Russia – I went back into the 2000s. The Snowden story occupied me. And of course, it’s so ironic that he the most American of patriots is living in Moscow because he has to. *It’s the only country in the world that would give him asylum -  in other words it’s the only country in the word that can deny the US what it wants which is Snowden.”*

 

“[Putin] explained to me that Russians wanted an extradition treaty with the US for years, but nothing doing, because there are a lot of Russian criminals in America who stole money from Russia. He did nothing wrong in Russian terms so they gave him asylum - now its 3 years 5 years whatever its going to be. I wish Ed well I really do.”



Stone tried explaining Putin’s point of view regarding the breakdown in relations between the US and Russia that has occurred since the end of the George W Bush presidency, saying the US’s decision to install new ABM defenses have greatly unsettled Russians, who see their installation as an encroachment.



“We come around now to this period in 2017…for some reason an improving US-Russia relationship deteriorated completely. *Mr. Putin in his interview goes into the ABM treaty, he goes into the expansion of NATO and the American support of terrorism in the caucuses while the Russians were helping them in Afghanistan.”*

 

*“That’s an important issue for them. Many American lives were saved. I think you talked about those three issues NATO, ABM, the support of terrorism.”*



The ABM installations, in particular, are threatening a policy of “nuclear parity” that has existed since the Soviet Union, Stone said, adding that the notion that Russia is a threat to the US is “insanity,” given Russia's weaker economy and less powerful military.



*“ABM destroys the nuclear parity that existed. When Mr. Bush tore that up in 2001, that was a signal that the US wanted nuclear superiority, or a first strike option.”*



Stone also shared a story about watching the movie “Dr. Strangelove” with Putin, who he said was greatly moved.



“I showed him the movie Dr. Strangelove…and he watched it very serious about it. He said this movie was very accurate of that time and it’s still accurate today.”



Circling back to the issue of nuclear deterrents, Stone said he’s worried that rising tensions around the world could trigger a “nuclear confrontation.”



“I’m saying I have reached that age when I am not really concerned about what happens to me but… it’s not just about the US, but about the whole planet and *I feel a nuclear confrontation, an accident, could happen tomorrow. But you put ABMs in Poland and Romania - that’s a gigantic mistake.”*

 

“An ABM can be converted overnight from a defensive missile to an offensive missile. They’re surrounded from the North the East and the West by US missiles and we don’t seem to realize it.”



Stone says he’s “scared for America,” explaining that many US citizens prefer to blindly accept media spin that’s favorable to the US establishment, without questioning it, or trying to understand Russia’s point of view.



“It’s a good thing I went through JFK when I was younger…there’s been a lot of controversy around my movies. *I’m scared not for myself because I’m at that age, they can’t destroy me anymore, but I’m scared for America, I’m afraid they’ve lost their sense. I’m afraid there’s a lack of foresight and leadership.”*



Stone denied allegations that he provided questions to Putin ahead of time, and said the four-part documentary is a great opportunity for Americans to learn more about Russia’s enigmatic leader.



*“Over four hours you can listen to a man who’s been there 16 years talk about the balance of power. We live in this spin cycle like a laundry every day it’s a crisis and I think that’s the way we like it, it creates more money but this is not a view of the world.”*

          LAW   
Law is a system of rules, usually enforced through a set of institutions. It shapes politics, economics and society in numerous ways and serves as a primary social mediator of relations between people. Contract law regulates everything from buying a bus ticket to trading on derivatives markets. Property law defines rights and obligations related to the transfer and title of personal (often referred to as chattel) and real property. Trust law applies to assets held for investment and financial security, while tort law allows claims for compensation if a person's rights or property are harmed. If the harm is criminalized in a statute, criminal law offers means by which the state can prosecute the perpetrator. Constitutional law provides a framework for the creation of law, the protection of human rights and the election of political representatives. Administrative law is used to review the decisions of government agencies, while international law governs affairs between sovereign nation states in activities ranging from trade to environmental regulation or military action. Writing in 350 BC, the Greek philosopher Aristotle declared, "The rule of law is better than the rule of any individual.

Legal systems elaborate rights and responsibilities in a variety of ways. A general distinction can be made between civil law jurisdictions, which codify their laws, and common law systems, where judge made law is not consolidated. In some countries, religion informs the law. Law provides a rich source of scholarly inquiry, into legal history, philosophy, economic analysis or sociology. Law also raises important and complex issues concerning equality, fairness and justice. "In its majestic equality", said the author Anatole France in 1894, "the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets and steal loaves of bread. In a typical democracy, the central institutions for interpreting and creating law are the three main branches of government, namely an impartial judiciary, a democratic legislature, and an accountable executive. To implement and enforce the law and provide services to the public, a government's bureaucracy, the military and police are vital. While all these organs of the state are creatures created and bound by law, an independent legal profession and a vibrant civil society inform and support their progress.

Legal subjects
All legal systems deal with the same basic issues, but each country categorises and identifies its legal subjects in different ways. A common distinction is that between "public law" (a term related closely to the state, and including constitutional, administrative and criminal law), and "private law" (which covers contract, tort and property). In civil law systems, contract and tort fall under a general law of obligations, while trusts law is dealt with under statutory regimes or international conventions. International, constitutional and administrative law, criminal law, contract, tort, property law and trusts are regarded as the "traditional core subjects",although there are many further disciplines which may be of greater practical importance.

International law
International law can refer to three things: public international law, private international law or conflict of laws and the law of supranational organisations.
Public international law concerns relationships between sovereign nations. The sources for public international law development are custom, practice and treaties between sovereign nations, such as the Geneva Conventions. Public international law can be formed by international organisations, such as the United Nations (which was established after the failure of the League of Nations to prevent the Second World War), the International Labour Organisation, the World Trade Organisation, or the International Monetary Fund. Public international law has a special status as law because there is no international police force, and courts (e.g. the International Court of Justice as the primary UN judicial organ) lack the capacity to penalise disobedience. However, a few bodies, such as the WTO, have effective systems of binding arbitration and dispute resolution backed up by trade sanctions.

Conflict of laws (or "private international law" in civil law countries) concerns which jurisdiction a legal dispute between private parties should be heard in and which jurisdiction's law should be applied. Today, businesses are increasingly capable of shifting capital and labour supply chains across borders, as well as trading with overseas businesses, making the question of which country has jurisdiction even more pressing. Increasing numbers of businesses opt for commercial arbitration under the New York Convention 1958.

European Union law is the first and, so far, only example of a supranational legal framework. Given the trend of increasing global economic integration, many regional agreements—especially the Union of South American Nations—are on track to follow the same model. In the EU, sovereign nations have gathered their authority in a system of courts and political institutions. These institutions are allowed the ability to enforce legal norms both against or for member states and citizens in a manner which is not possible through public international law. As the European Court of Justice said in the 1960s, European Union law constitutes "a new legal order of international law" for the mutual social and economic benefit of the member states


Constitutional and administrative law
Constitutional and administrative law govern the affairs of the state. Constitutional law concerns both the relationships between the executive, legislature and judiciary and the human rights or civil liberties of individuals against the state. Most jurisdictions, like the United States and France, have a single codified constitution, with a Bill of Rights. A few, like the United Kingdom, have no such document. A "constitution" is simply those laws which constitute the body politic, from statute, case law and convention. A case named Entick v Carrington illustrates a constitutional principle deriving from the common law. Mr Entick's house was searched and ransacked by Sheriff Carrington. When Mr Entick complained in court, Sheriff Carrington argued that a warrant from a Government minister, the Earl of Halifax, was valid authority. However, there was no written statutory provision or court authority. The leading judge, Lord Camden, stated that,
The great end, for which men entered into society, was to secure their property. That right is preserved sacred and incommunicable in all instances, where it has not been taken away or abridged by some public law for the good of the whole ... If no excuse can be found or produced, the silence of the books is an authority against the defendant, and the plaintiff must have judgment.
The fundamental constitutional principle, inspired by John Locke, holds that the individual can do anything but that which is forbidden by law, and the state may do nothing but that which is authorised by law. Administrative law is the chief method for people to hold state bodies to account. People can apply for judicial review of actions or decisions by local councils, public services or government ministries, to ensure that they comply with the law. The first specialist administrative court was the Conseil d'État set up in 1799, as Napoleon assumed power in France.

Criminal law
Criminal law, also known as penal law, pertains to crimes and punishment. It thus regulates the definition of and penalties for offences found to have a sufficiently deleterious social impact but, in itself, makes no moral judgement on an offender nor imposes restrictions on society that physically prevents people from committing a crime in the first place. Investigating, apprehending, charging, and trying suspected offenders is regulated by the law of criminal procedure. The paradigm case of a crime lies in the proof, beyond reasonable doubt, that a person is guilty of two things. First, the accused must commit an act which is deemed by society to be criminal, or actus reus (guilty act). Second, the accused must have the requisite malicious intent to do a criminal act, or mens rea (guilty mind). However for so called "strict liability" crimes, an actus reus is enough. Criminal systems of the civil law tradition distinguish between intention in the broad sense (dolus directus and dolus eventualis), and negligence. Negligence does not carry criminal responsibility unless a particular crime provides for its punishment.
Examples of crimes include murder, assault, fraud and theft. In exceptional circumstances defences can apply to specific acts, such as killing in self defence, or pleading insanity. Another example is in the 19th century English case of R v Dudley and Stephens, which tested a defence of "necessity". The Mignonette, sailing from Southampton to Sydney, sank. Three crew members and Richard Parker, a 17 year old cabin boy, were stranded on a raft. They were starving and the cabin boy was close to death. Driven to extreme hunger, the crew killed and ate the cabin boy. The crew survived and were rescued, but put on trial for murder. They argued it was necessary to kill the cabin boy to preserve their own lives. Lord Coleridge, expressing immense disapproval, ruled, "to preserve one's life is generally speaking a duty, but it may be the plainest and the highest duty to sacrifice it." The men were sentenced to hang, but public opinion was overwhelmingly supportive of the crew's right to preserve their own lives. In the end, the Crown commuted their sentences to six months in jail.

Criminal law offences are viewed as offences against not just individual victims, but the community as well. The state, usually with the help of police, takes the lead in prosecution, which is why in common law countries cases are cited as "The People v ..." or "R (for Rex or Regina) v ..." Also, lay juries are often used to determine the guilt of defendants on points of fact: juries cannot change legal rules. Some developed countries still condone capital punishment for criminal activity, but the normal punishment for a crime will be imprisonment, fines, state supervision (such as probation), or community service. Modern criminal law has been affected considerably by the social sciences, especially with respect to sentencing, legal research, legislation, and rehabilitation. On the international field, 111 countries are members of the International Criminal Court, which was established to try people for crimes against humanity.

Contract law
Contract law concerns enforceable promises, and can be summed up in the Latin phrase pacta sunt servanda (agreements must be kept). In common law jurisdictions, three key elements to the creation of a contract are necessary: offer and acceptance, consideration and the intention to create legal relations. In Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company a medical firm advertised that its new wonder drug, the smokeball, would cure people's flu, and if it did not, the buyers would get £100. Many people sued for their £100 when the drug did not work. Fearing bankruptcy, Carbolic argued the advert was not to be taken as a serious, legally binding offer. It was an invitation to treat, mere puff, a gimmick. But the court of appeal held that to a reasonable man Carbolic had made a serious offer. People had given good consideration for it by going to the "distinct inconvenience" of using a faulty product. "Read the advertisement how you will, and twist it about as you will", said Lord Justice Lindley, "here is a distinct promise expressed in language which is perfectly unmistakable".

"Consideration" indicates the fact that all parties to a contract have exchanged something of value. Some common law systems, including Australia, are moving away from the idea of consideration as a requirement. The idea of estoppel or culpa in contrahendo, can be used to create obligations during pre-contractual negotiations. In civil law jurisdictions, consideration is not required for a contract to be binding. In France, an ordinary contract is said to form simply on the basis of a "meeting of the minds" or a "concurrence of wills". Germany has a special approach to contracts, which ties into property law. Their 'abstraction principle' (Abstraktionsprinzip) means that the personal obligation of contract forms separately from the title of property being conferred. When contracts are invalidated for some reason (e.g. a car buyer is so drunk that he lacks legal capacity to contract) the contractual obligation to pay can be invalidated separately from the proprietary title of the car. Unjust enrichment law, rather than contract law, is then used to restore title to the rightful owner.

Tort law
Torts, sometimes called delicts, are civil wrongs. To have acted tortiously, one must have breached a duty to another person, or infringed some pre-existing legal right. A simple example might be accidentally hitting someone with a cricket ball. Under the law of negligence, the most common form of tort, the injured party could potentially claim compensation for his injuries from the party responsible. The principles of negligence are illustrated by Donoghue v Stevenson. A friend of Mrs Donoghue ordered an opaque bottle of ginger beer (intended for the consumption of Mrs Donoghue) in a café in Paisley. Having consumed half of it, Mrs Donoghue poured the remainder into a tumbler. The decomposing remains of a snail floated out. She claimed to have suffered from shock, fell ill with gastroenteritis and sued the manufacturer for carelessly allowing the drink to be contaminated. The House of Lords decided that the manufacturer was liable for Mrs Donoghue's illness. Lord Atkin took a distinctly moral approach, and said,
The liability for negligence ... is no doubt based upon a general public sentiment of moral wrongdoing for which the offender must pay ... The rule that you are to love your neighbour becomes in law, you must not injure your neighbour; and the lawyer's question, Who is my neighbour? receives a restricted reply. You must take reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions which you can reasonably foresee would be likely to injure your neighbour.

This became the basis for the four principles of negligence; (1) Mr Stevenson owed Mrs Donoghue a duty of care to provide safe drinks (2) he breached his duty of care (3) the harm would not have occurred but for his breach and (4) his act was the proximate cause, or not too remote a consequence, of her harm.[38] Another example of tort might be a neighbour making excessively loud noises with machinery on his property. Under a nuisance claim the noise could be stopped. Torts can also involve intentional acts, such as assault, battery or trespass. A better known tort is defamation, which occurs, for example, when a newspaper makes unsupportable allegations that damage a politician's reputation. More infamous are economic torts, which form the basis of labour law in some countries by making trade unions liable for strikes, when statute does not provide immunity.

Property law
Property law governs valuable things that people call 'theirs'. Real property, sometimes called 'real estate' refers to ownership of land and things attached to it. Personal property, refers to everything else; movable objects, such as computers, cars, jewelry, and sandwiches, or intangible rights, such as stocks and shares. A right in rem is a right to a specific piece of property, contrasting to a right in personam which allows compensation for a loss, but not a particular thing back. Land law forms the basis for most kinds of property law, and is the most complex. It concerns mortgages, rental agreements, licences, covenants, easements and the statutory systems for land registration. Regulations on the use of personal property fall under intellectual property, company law, trusts and commercial law. An example of a basic case of most property law is Armory v Delamirie. A chimney sweep's boy found a jewel encrusted with precious stones. He took it to a goldsmith to have it valued. The goldsmith's apprentice looked at it, sneakily removed the stones, told the boy it was worth three halfpence and that he would buy it. The boy said he would prefer the jewel back, so the apprentice gave it to him, but without the stones. The boy sued the goldsmith for his apprentice's attempt to cheat him. Lord Chief Justice Pratt ruled that even though the boy could not be said to own the jewel, he should be considered the rightful keeper ("finders keeper") until the original owner is found. In fact the apprentice and the boy both had a right of possession in the jewel (a technical concept, meaning evidence that something could belong to someone), but the boy's possessory interest was considered better, because it could be shown to be first in time. Possession may be nine tenths of the law, but not all.

This case is used to support the view of property in common law jurisdictions, that the person who can show the best claim to a piece of property, against any contesting party, is the owner. By contrast, the classic civil law approach to property, propounded by Friedrich Carl von Savigny, is that it is a right good against the world. Obligations, like contracts and torts are conceptualised as rights good between individuals. The idea of property raises many further philosophical and political issues. Locke argued that our "lives, liberties and estates" are our property because we own our bodies and mix our labour with our surroundings.

Equity and trusts
Equity is a body of rules that developed in England separately from the "common law". The common law was administered by judges. The Lord Chancellor on the other hand, as the King's keeper of conscience, could overrule the judge made law if he thought it equitable to do so. This meant equity came to operate more through principles than rigid rules. For instance, whereas neither the common law nor civil law systems allow people to split the ownership from the control of one piece of property, equity allows this through an arrangement known as a 'trust'. 'Trustees' control property, whereas the 'beneficial' (or 'equitable') ownership of trust property is held by people known as 'beneficiaries'. Trustees owe duties to their beneficiaries to take good care of the entrusted property. In the early case of Keech v Sandford a child had inherited the lease on a market in Romford, London. Mr Sandford was entrusted to look after this property until the child matured. But before then, the lease expired. The landlord had (apparently) told Mr Sandford that he did not want the child to have the renewed lease. Yet the landlord was happy (apparently) to give Mr Sandford the opportunity of the lease instead. Mr Sandford took it. When the child (now Mr Keech) grew up, he sued Mr Sandford for the profit that he had been making by getting the market's lease. Mr Sandford was meant to be trusted, but he put himself in a position of conflict of interest. The Lord Chancellor, Lord King, agreed and ordered Mr Sandford should disgorge his profits. He wrote,
I very well see, if a trustee, on the refusal to renew, might have a lease to himself few trust-estates would be renewed ... This may seem very hard, that the trustee is the only person of all mankind who might not have the lease; but it is very proper that the rule should be strictly pursued and not at all relaxed.
Of course, Lord King LC was worried that trustees might exploit opportunities to use trust property for themselves instead of looking after it. Business speculators using trusts had just recently caused a stock market crash. Strict duties for trustees made their way into company law and were applied to directors and chief executive officers. Another example of a trustee's duty might be to invest property wisely or sell it. This is especially the case for pension funds, the most important form of trust, where investors are trustees for people's savings until retirement. But trusts can also be set up for charitable purposes, famous examples being the British Museum or the Rockefeller Foundation.

Further disciplines
Law spreads far beyond the core subjects into virtually every area of life. Three categories are presented for convenience, though the subjects intertwine and overlap.
Law and society
A trade union protest by UNISON while on strike

Labour law is the study of a tripartite industrial relationship between worker, employer and trade union. This involves collective bargaining regulation, and the right to strike. Individual employment law refers to workplace rights, such as job security, health and safety or a minimum wage.

Human rights, civil rights and human rights law are important fields to guarantee everyone basic freedoms and entitlements. These are laid down in codes such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights (which founded the European Court of Human Rights) and the U.S. Bill of Rights. The Treaty of Lisbon makes the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union legally binding in all member states except Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union – Poland and the United Kingdom.

Civil procedure and criminal procedure concern the rules that courts must follow as a trial and appeals proceed. Both concern a citizen's right to a fair trial or hearing.

Evidence law involves which materials are admissible in courts for a case to be built.

Immigration law and nationality law concern the rights of foreigners to live and work in a nation-state that is not their own and to acquire or lose citizenship. Both also involve the right of asylum and the problem of stateless individuals.

Social security law refers to the rights people have to social insurance, such as jobseekers' allowances or housing benefits.

Family law covers marriage and divorce proceedings, the rights of children and rights to property and money in the event of separation.

Law and commerce
Company law sprang from the law of trusts, on the principle of separating ownership of property and control.[ The law of the modern company began with the Joint Stock Companies Act 1856, passed in the United Kingdom, which provided investors with a simple registration procedure to gain limited liability under the separate legal personality of the corporation.

Commercial law covers complex contract and property law. The law of agency, insurance law, bills of exchange, insolvency and bankruptcy law and sales law are all important, and trace back to the mediæval Lex Mercatoria. The UK Sale of Goods Acts and the US Uniform Commercial Code are examples of codified common law commercial principles.

Admiralty law and the Law of the Sea lay a basic framework for free trade and commerce across the world's oceans and seas, where outside of a country's zone of control. Shipping companies operate through ordinary principles of commercial law, generalised for a global market. Admiralty law also encompasses specialised issues such as salvage, maritime liens, and injuries to passengers.

Intellectual property law aims at safeguarding creators and other producers of intellectual goods and services. These are legal rights (copyrights, trademarks, patents, and related rights) which result from intellectual activity in the industrial, literary and artistic fields.

Restitution deals with the recovery of someone else's gain, rather than compensation for one's own loss.

Unjust enrichment When someone has been unjustly enriched (or there is an "absence of basis" for a transaction) at another's expense, this event generates the right to restitution to reverse that gain.

Law and regulation
The New York Stock Exchange trading floor after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, before tougher banking regulation was introduced

Tax law involves regulations that concern value added tax, corporate tax, income tax.

Banking law and financial regulation set minimum standards on the amounts of capital banks must hold, and rules about best practice for investment. This is to insure against the risk of economic crises, such as the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

Regulation deals with the provision of public services and utilities. Water law is one example. Especially since privatisation became popular and took management of services away from public law, private companies doing the jobs previously controlled by government have been bound by varying degrees of social responsibility. Energy, gas, telecomms and water are regulated industries in most OECD countries.

Competition law, known in the U.S. as antitrust law, is an evolving field that traces as far back as Roman decrees against price fixing and the English restraint of trade doctrine. Modern competition law derives from the U.S. anti-cartel and anti-monopoly statutes (the Sherman Act and Clayton Act) of the turn of the 20th century. It is used to control businesses who attempt to use their economic influence to distort market prices at the expense of consumer welfare.

Consumer law could include anything from regulations on unfair contractual terms and clauses to directives on airline baggage insurance.

Environmental law is increasingly important, especially in light of the Kyoto Protocol and the potential danger of climate change. Environmental protection also serves to penalise polluters within domestic legal systems.
          Immigration does not cause unemployment   
Study refutes claim that foreign nationals are depriving British-born workers of jobs

There is no link between rising immigration and rising unemployment, independent economists have found – contradicting persistent claims from anti-immigration activists and politicians that an influx of foreign nationals into the UK in recent years has led to more British-born workers on the dole.

The respected National Institute of Economic and Social Research found that there was "no association" between higher immigration and joblessness – even at times of recession or low growth of the sort that Britain is experiencing at the moment. In fact, the Institute's researchers suggested that the opposite might be the case and that immigration acts as an economic stimulus, pushing total employment levels higher and dole claimant numbers lower than they would otherwise have been.

"Perhaps surprisingly," their economists said, "the interaction between migrant inflows and GDP emerges as positive, indicating that during periods of lower growth, migrant inflows are associated with ... slower [dole] claimant growth than would otherwise have occurred." The researchers did concede that the stimulating effects of migration on the overall labour market at a time of recession are likely to be small.

The anti-immigration pressure group MigrationWatch claimed yesterday that rising immigration from Eastern and Central Europe since European Union enlargement in 2004 had contributed to a surge in youth unemployment in Britain, which is now above 1 million. MigrationWatch released its own report, saying: "Youth unemployment in the UK increased by almost 450,000 in the period from 2004 Q1 to 2011 Q3. Over the same period, numbers of workers from the A8 countries grew by 600,000.

"Correlation is not, of course, proof of causation but, given the positive employability characteristics and relative youth of migrants from these countries, it is implausible and counter-intuitive to conclude ... that A8 migration has had virtually no impact on UK youth unemployment."

However, critics of MigrationWatch pointed out that youth unemployment started rising before 2004, the point when Polish and other former Soviet bloc nationals were freely permitted to enter the UK to work.

And Jonathan Portes, the director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research and former chief economist at the Cabinet Office, also argues today that most of the rise in youth unemployment took place in 2008 and 2009, a period during which the number of Eastern European workers entering Britain to seek employment dipped. Government ministers have implied a link between immigration and joblessness. "Controlling immigration is critical or we will risk losing another generation to dependency and hopelessness," said Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, in a speech last July.

The Coalition has imposed a cap on immigration from outside the European Union and has pledged to reduce net migration to "the tens of thousands" a year by the end of this parliament in 2015. The Office for Budget Responsibility, however, has cast doubt on whether the Government will succeed in meeting this goal, with the Coalition's fiscal watchdog estimating that average annual migration until 2016 will be 140,000.

Net migration hit a record high of 252,000 in 2010, although this was mainly due to a sharp fall in the number of Britons leaving the country rather than an increase in immigration.

To analyse the impact of migration on the labour market, the Institute's researchers compared the overseas nationals who were allocated national insurance numbers in an area with the number of people claiming the dole locally.

"I came with nothing. Now I employ four people" - Datsa Gaile, 39, Northampton

In seven years I have gone from living in a single room, scouring the country for a job – to editing my own newspaper and employing people. When I came to live in the UK in 2006, a friend and I arranged accommodation and work with an agency in Latvia. But when we arrived in London there was nothing. We thought we would have to stay on the streets. I realised I had to do things for myself. I made a CV and got a job. Then I brought my children to the UK. In 2009 I began studying for a BA in business studies at Northampton. At university, I began a paper for the Latvian community. We print 10,000 copies per month.

"I don't believe I'm taking someone else's job" - Agata Wasziewicz-Schmidt Dos Santos, 29, interpreter, Newquay

My husband and I came here in 2008 from Poland. First I worked at Starbucks because I couldn't get work in languages, even though I speak Polish, Portuguese and English. As soon as I changed my email address to a less foreign name, I started getting invited to interviews. I don't believe I'm taking someone else's job, because there aren't many people who speak Polish and Portuguese. I give back to the community, by working in schools and hospitals. My husband owns a martial arts business. He trains other instructors – one of them is an unemployed Brit.

47. Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, 4–20 April 1793 ⁠* 

Sapey. Sunday. April 4th. 1793

In sober sadness my dear friend you deserve a letter as little as any lazy mortal ever yet did — but perhaps there is one waiting for me at Oxford — I will think so at least — it is easy to deceive ourselves when we wish to be deceived — I expect to find one upon my return in acknowledgement of this

my philosophy which has so long been of a kind peculiar to myself neither of the school of Plato Aristotle Westminster or the Miller [1]  is at length settled. I am a peripatetic philosopher far however from adopting the tenets of any self sufficient cynic or puzzling sophist my sentiments will be found more enlivened by the brilliant colours of Fancy Nature & Rousseau than the positive dogmas of the Stagyrite [2]  or the metaphysical refinements of his antagonist — I aspire not to the honourary title of subtle disputant or divine Doctor — I wish to found no school to drive no scholars mad — ideas spring up with the scenes I view — some pass away with the momentary glance — some are engraved upon the tablet of memory & some infixed upon the heart you have told me what Philosophy is not & I can give you a little more information upon the subject — it is not plunging in debauchery because the world do the same — it is not reading Johannes Secundus [3]  because he may have some poetical lines — it is not wearing the hair undressd in opposition to custom perhaps — it is certainly not in giving pain to a friend by neglect <this I feel the severity of & blush for> — it is not rejecting Lucan [4]  lest he should vitiate the taste & reading without fear what may corrupt the heart — it is not clapt on with a wig or communicated by the fashionable hand of the barber — it had nothing to do with Watson [5]  when he burnt his books — it does not sit upon a woolsack. honors can not bestow it — persecution cannot take it away — it illumined the prison of Socrates but fled the triumph of Octavius [6]  — it shrank from the savage murderer Constantine [7]  it dignified the tent of Julian [8]  — it has no particular love for colleges — in crowds it is alone — in solitude most engaged. it renders life agreable & death enviable —

Yesterday makes one twelvemonth from the day on which I breakfasted with you & brought Dr Vs letter in my pocket — that transaction I begin to look upon as the most fortunate I ever met with — in consequence of it I avoided the society of Ch Ch where according to all the observation I have able to make it would not have been possible to add one to the number of my friends & went to Balliol where I found some deserving of the title. in consequence of it I have visited Worcestershire & shall during the long vacation repeat my visit. how little does man know of good or evil! the affliction of today may produce the happiness of every future hour — the reverse is too often the case. but as the shield has two colours I will turn to the most agreable.

I have long expected your ode Quæqui pii vates & Phœbo digna locuti [9]  — as you have alterd it — you are most intolerably indolent — by the by your word interview with the bishop gave great offence to young Wynn. do you ever hear anything of Bunbury? I could wish to know something of one with whom I was once upon terms so very intimate that though I despise his conduct I cannot but love his abilities — abilities are not however the best gift of heaven — Bunbury wallows in brutal excess & — the race is not always to the swift or the battle to the strong. Alas poor Poland! [10]  this may be allowed.

I have lately read the Man of Feeling [11]  — if you have never yet read it — do now from my recommendation — few books have ever pleasd me so painfully or so much — it is very strange that man should be delighted with the highest pain that can be produced — I even begin to think that both pain & pleasure exist only in idea but this must not be affirmed, the first twitch of the toothache or retrospective glance will undeceive me with a vengeance. It is Mackenzies writing if I am not mistaken the author of Julia de Roubigne. [12]  & La Roche & Louisa Venoni in the Mirror. [13] 

the age of chivalry is past & my travels have nothing in them any way interesting to one who is not with me — to paint the different spots I have seen & romantic seats I have admird were impossible & to describe the emotions they occasioned — the attempt would be absurd —

you can better imagine rocks of petrifaction — cascades — glens & cottages from your own fancy than from my description — after all both would fall very short — you must find leisure at some future period to tramp it with me across the country. I never see a romantic spot without wishing for Charles Collinstell him he has used me very ill in not writing but you will there keep one another in countenance — evil communications corrupt good manners — you will study the pure Johannes Secundus & forget the unclassical RS.

I have seen, Bedford some of the most delightful spots that Fancy could possibly have picturd & at a moment when I was in the most delightful mood to enjoy — a certain tinge of melancholy heightens every shade around & disposes the mind more fully to enjoy the awful grandeur of the scene. I feel much disposed to finish this letter there should the weather continue good —

Nescia mens hominis fati sortisq futuræ! [14]  my letter was reserved to be finishd at Balliol. I found upon visiting C Collins Jack the second [15]  as usual upon the sopha & he shelters himself behind you as an example — yes Bedford I have heard you mentioned as an example for the most contemptible looseness — when I asked him why he bought the Pucelle [16]  he replied Bedford was with me. it does not extenuate his fault but it aggravates yours. can the finest language, the most honeyd flow of words that ever dropt from the pen of a Rousseau atone for lasciousness of idea? is poison less dangerous if mingled with sweetmeats? who would touch it were it infused in gall? my dear friend the goodness both of your head & heart should make you fling that damned book behind the fire where Collins’s has been more <than>once & where it will be purged of all its impurities.

if you have any message to Cambridge that I can carry let me know as in the approaching fortnights vacation Seward & I purpose walking there. on our return I sprained my ancle pretty severely which however did not prevent my walking twenty miles farther that day & twenty more the next. at present I am an invalid for convenience sake — it gives me time to read & write & rests my ancle. on Monday I purpose emerging.

Saturday 20th . if immediately hastening to repair a fault be to atone for it that atonement shall be made — I could even excuse myself & offer a plea which you would think admissible — but I detest mysteries. Le premier pas vers le vice est de mettre du mystere aux actions innocentes et quiconque aime à se cacher, a lôt ou tard raison de se cacher [17]  — I know not why I should quote these words but they rushd into my head or more properly my heart & that when it is full is too apt to overflow. in short then I have promised to send some verses of mine into Herefordshire & that employment alone has been the real cause of my confinement & my neglect. the sprain happened fortunately for me I could have finished them [MS torn] the time but I am continually altering in hopes of amendment & as fast as I corr[MS torn] fault more of the Hydra race start up.

Wynn is welcome to laugh at my walking plan — I have no need for were I to fix upon those parts of my life which I would desire to relive it should be my Worcestershire journey — to one who goes for fashion or to a fète or to a hunting box it may appear ridiculous but to him whose philosophy proceeds from nature & the heart the case is different. I was absent but three weeks — yet three ages in this sink of science could not erase the ideas resulting from it (nor were that possible) supply the vacancy. Evesham Abbey was the only spot memorable from accidental occurrences which I visited — a clear brook an extensive prospect a woody glen or a rising spring were more frequently the objects of my pilgrimage & where I let my Fancy stray more at will. I meant to have concluded this letter in a spot the most romantic I ever recollect to have seen — that intention was never executed & memory must supply the picture. a spring rushing dropping over a rock which it had made amid the wood — thro a narrow opening in the wood a cascade caused by the dissolving snow — a brook between so clear so broken by stones! the opposite side a hill almost perpendicular with excellent timber & on the summit as far as sight would reach (here a very small space) such a house as brings to remembrance Switzerland & St Preux. [18]  my mind was well tempered to enjoy the scene. it was returning from Ledbury which I left with reluctance & I had walked near twenty miles — the spring was delightful even your favourites ode o fons Brundisia vitrio &c [19]  would fail to give you an adequate idea. for six days we were confined at Ledbury by the snow — this delay prevented us from visiting the greatest part of Herefordshire. much has been said of the depravity of mankind by authors & in the moment of discontent I have accorded to their sentiments — but those who live in that hot bed of iniquity London, or that nursery of debauchery an English University are not qualified to judge — if observation may be depended upon there are men buried in retirement neither unworthy of the names of men or of Christians. the women I met with in the country neither delighted in balls or were proud of showing a white hand at a harpsichord. yet I found them artists & botanists without instruction — well read & sensible without ostentation. nay more wonderful I found one perfect beauty without vanity. C Collins ridicules me as one without feeling because I reprobate Johannes Secundus perhaps you may blame me or rather wish to blame me for the same — but a susceptible heart ought to be guarded with double care — purity of mind is something like snow best in the shade. Gybralter is on a rock but it would be imprudent to defy her enemies & call them to the charge. my heart is equally easy of impression with Rousseaus & perhaps more tenacious of xxxx. refinement I adore but to me the highest delicacy appears so intimately connected with it that the union is like body & soul. you will upon xxxxxx most xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxx refinements do you yourself think elegance an atonement for licentiousness? if so — Lovelace [20]  is an accomplished character — Johannes ought to be read & the book of Christian morality be discarded. “vice loses half its evil by losing all its grossness” [21]  is a vile sentiment — it is the strumpet of the Strand affecting modesty. tell me of all my faults & I will strive to mend them but abjure forever those infamous lines whose sole merit is in handling gilding poison.

yrs most sincerely

RS.

          Nobile: Bee 3    

The Hang Loose concept was created to encourage wake boarders to find peace by looking inside themselves. Five designs have been created, and they reflect five unique personalities and sets of experiences. When all the prints for each model are combined and placed side by side, they create a unique board design – each of which is simple yet modern and aims to attract a younger target audience through innovative 3D image rendering, fun imagery and a gadget-centric approach. Every board tells a unique story.

          Doria: “Jamais serei senador ou deputado, não tenho vocação para o Legislativo”   

Cotado como potencial candidato ao governo do Estado e até à Presidência da República em 2018, o prefeito João Doria (PSDB) disse nesta quinta-feira, 29, que sua vocação na área pública é para o Executivo, e não para o Legislativo.

“Não me vejo como agente do Legislativo, posso até afirmar que jamais serei senador ou deputado, não tenho vocação para o Legislativo”, disse o tucano durante palestra em evento com investidores organizado pelo Citibank, na capital paulista.

O prefeito falou que deseja continuar fazendo gestão na área pública com os preceitos do setor privado. “Respeito bastante o Legislativo, mas eu sou executivo. Quero continuar fazendo o mesmo que fiz na área privada, na área pública”, disse Doria, reforçando que tudo o que pretende fazer na administração pública deve estar estabelecido na lei.

Ele tentou afastar, no entanto, que está decidido a ser candidato a presidente em 2018. Reconhece que sua gestão está “extrapolando” a cidade e impactando outros municípios e Estados “Mas isso não me faz ser candidato a presidente da República. Não seria correto alguém que acabou de ser eleito estar determinado a fazer campanha”, declarou.

Durante a palestra, Doria repetiu seu discurso de que não é político. “Continuo sendo um gestor, eu não sou político. Eu estou na política. Eu não quero ser político por opção, assim como fiz a opção em torcer pelo Santos”.

Ele afirmou ainda que está convidando outros empresários a entrarem na política. “Quem vai cuidar do Brasil, os bandidos?”, disse, ao justificar sua atitude. Ele destacou que há “gente decente” na política. “A maioria não, mas há gente decente”.

Desestatização

O tucano destacou seu programa de desestatização e voltou a falar que pretende privatizar alguns equipamentos municipais, como o Anhembi, o autódromo de Interlagos, o Crematório Vila Albina, cemitérios, os mercados municipais e o Bilhete Único. No caso do Bilhete Único, Doria afirmou que a Prefeitura pode deixar de gastar R$ 250 milhões por ano e arrecadar R$ 1 bilhão em um leilão de desestatização.

Nesta madrugada, a Câmara aprovou em primeira discussão o projeto de lei de concessão do estádio do Pacaembu. Com isso, a Prefeitura projeta economizar R$ 400 milhões em quatro anos. Doria afirmou que está negociando com a Câmara para começar em agosto a “marcha” de aprovação de projetos do programa.

Relatando suas viagens internacionais para apresentar o programa de desestatização, Doria citou que há interesse de fundos de investimentos no Brasil, apesar da crise política. “Com toda turbulência política, o Brasil ainda tem interesse e gera interesse em fundos de investimentos”, disse.

Sem citar diretamente a crise política que envolveu o presidente Michel Temer (PMDB) e a empresa JBS, Doria afirmou que, na atração de investimentos à cidade, a Prefeitura não vai usar BNDES e eleger campeões nacionais “para não viver os problemas que agora estamos vendo o que aconteceu”. Em outro momento, ele tentou se afastar da crise política. “Eu não recebi dinheiro de Odebrecht, nem de JBS. Falo o que tenho que falar”, declarou.

FANNY RABELSzélesség: 34 cmMagasság: 46 cmSúly: 1. 2 kgMérete kerettel: 34 x 46 cmFanny Rabel (August 27, 1922 in Poland ? November 25, 2008 in Mexico City), born Fanny Rabinovich, was a Polish-born Mexican artist who is considered to be the first modern female muralist and one of the youngest associated with the Mexican muralism of the early to mid 20th century. She and her family arrived to Mexico in 1938 from Europe and she studied art at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado "La Esmeralda", where she met and became friends with Frida Kahlo. She became the only female member of ? Los Fridos? a group of students under Kahlo? s tutelage. She also worked as an assistant and apprentice to Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, painting a number of murals of her own during her career. The most important of this is Ronda en el tiempo at the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City. She also created canvases and other works, with children often featured in her work and one of the first of her generation to work with ecological themes in a series of works begun in 1979.

Me likey! A smaller wagon on a truck frame - YES! If the above theory is right that there may have been some 4WD versions put out, that'd be freaking awesome! I'll admit I'm not sure about a column-shift stick (never driven one), BUT (here it comes!), stick shift with AWD/4WD could make me a happy boy! (<i>The U.S. gets seriously ripped off in the manual transmission and AWD arena... I looked up the new Toyota C-HR; I think it was on the Poland site where they had stick OR AWD. Okay, so I'd take the stick, and get the AWD for mom. [Post-lottery winning, of course.]</i>)

          Global Distributed Control Systems Market Industry Analysis, Trends and Forecast   

It provides an advanced solution for the complicated process automation systems to make them more efficient and reliable.

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/30/2017 -- Distributed control system (DCS) is a computerized control system used to control the production line in the industry. It provides an advanced solution for the complicated process automation systems to make them more efficient and reliable. Growing use of DCS in process automation helps in improving the process quality, down time costs, reduces the life cycle, and creates high reserves, thus, encouraging the companies to invest in newer distribution control systems. Increase in manufacturing activities in Asia Pacific and Middle East countries is expected to contribute to the growing demand for distributed control system (DCS) solutions across different end use industries. Increasing investments in oil and gas, chemicals, petrochemicals, power generation, and water and waste-water industry among others is driving the demand for distributed control systems in regional markets. There is rapid industrialization worldwide since the markets have begun to revive after the launch of projects that were deferred during the economic downturn.

Increasing demand for oil and gas is creating the need for technologically advanced control systems for monitoring and controlling different activities in order to increase production efficiency. Also, these systems can help in reducing the risk to human life as DCS solutions can be implemented in hazardous environments. 

The growing demand for power is encouraging governments to set up new power stations or upgrade the existing ones for capacity expansion. Use of DCS solutions for monitoring different activities in power generation stations will help in enhancing the power generation speed and avoid human errors occurring during the process. Also, there is an increasing demand for distributed control systems in food processing industries due to the rapidly growing population. 

The global distributed control systems market is segmented based on components into DCS hardware, DCS software, and DCS services. The software segment is the largest in the global DCS market as most existing distributed control systems require system upgradation. DCS hardware is expected to become the fastest growing segment during the forecast period from 2012 to 2018 due to the increasing number of Greenfield projects in the Asia Pacific region. 

Most distributed control systems in North America and Europe were installed during the 1980s and are now reaching the end of their reasonable lifecycle, thus generating the need to upgrade or replace the systems. The opportunities in retrofitting currently outnumber the opportunities for new construction activities. In North America alone, there are around 5 million buildings that can be retrofitted, thus displaying the potential for distributed control systems in retrofit projects.  

The study on global distributed control systems, analyzes the market based on major component type, applications of DCS in end user industry and major geographies. The geographies analyzed under this report include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The report provides complete analysis of the factors responsible for driving and restraining the global DCS market and discusses the potential growth opportunities. 

Market shares and analysis of the leading players in the distributed control systems market is presented in the research study. ABB Ltd remained the market leader followed by Siemens and Honeywell in 2011. Other important players dominating the global distributed control systems market include Honeywell International, Yokogawa, Emerson, and Invensys Plc among others. The worldwide DCS market is highly consolidated with top five players accounting for around three-fourth of the total market share. Key players are continuously upgrading their products to keep up with the global market and match the increasing demands for sophisticated automated systems.

Bung Karno mungkin sekali adalah kepala negara di dunia yang menerima gelar Dr HC terbanyak, total 26: 7 dari dalam negeri dan 19 dari luar negeri, seperti Amerika Serikat, Kanada, Uni Soviet, Jerman Barat, Yugoslavia, Cekoslowakia, Polandia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hongaria, Mesir, Turki, Kamboja, Korea Utara, Filipina, Brasil, dan Bolivia.

Sekalipun demikian banyak penghormatan dunia akademis terhadapnya, Bung Karno dalam pidato di depan senat guru besar UGM mengatakan terus terang, setiap kali menerima gelar kehormatan itu, dirinya selalu bertanya apakah ada alasan cukup untuk menerima kehormatan seperti itu. Dirinya pada dasarnya bukanlah seorang ilmuwan karena tak menelurkan teori ilmu pengetahuan yang diterima dalam komunitas ilmu pengetahuan, tak menulis karya ilmiah yang diperbincangkan para ilmuwan di dunia, sehingga sumbangannya secara langsung kepada ilmu pengetahuan, dalam pandangannya sendiri, hampir tidak ada.

Namun, ini tak mengecilkan hatinya karena, menurut Bung Karno, dirinya tak merasa diri seorang ilmuwan, dan bahkan tak suka menjadi ilmuwan. "Pembawaanku tidak puas dengan ilmu an sich. Bagi saya, ilmu pengetahuan hanyalah berharga penuh jika ia dipergunakan untuk mengabdi kepada praktik hidup manusia, atau praktik hidupnya bangsa, atau praktik hidupnya dunia kemanusiaan."

Karya ilmiah berpuncak pada ditelurkannya suatu teori ilmiah yang diterima dan didiskusikan para ilmuwan dalam komunitas mereka, sedangkan Bung Karno merasa dirinya pada tempat pertama adalah seorang pemimpin politik, tugas utamanya mengaktifkan rakyat dan masyarakatnya kepada suatu cita-cita yang hendak diperjuangkan melalui praktik hidup. Berulang kali dia mengutip ucapan dalam bahasa Belanda, "Kennis zonder daad is doelloos. Daad zonder kennis is richtingloos (Pengetahuan tanpa perbuatan adalah tanpa tujuan. Perbuatan tanpa pengetahuan adalah tanpa arah)".

Kalau praktik hidup dan perbuatan, bagi Bung Karno, hal terpenting, apakah gunanya pengetahuan dan ilmu pengetahuan, dan mengapa dia membaca dan mempelajari demikian banyak buku termasuk buku-buku ilmu pengetahuan? Jawaban telah diberikannya sendiri: pengetahuan dan ilmu pengetahuan dibutuhkan supaya memberi arah yang lebih jelas sehingga praktik hidup mempunyai tujuan yang dapat dipertanggungjawabkan.

Pada titik ini menjadi jelas, bagi dia penting sekali menyusun suatu teori tentang arah dan tujuan bagi praktik hidup yang dijalankan rakyat dan masyarakatnya. Teori itu dalam pandangannya tak lain dari Pancasila, yang menurut keyakinannya dapat dan harus menjadi pedoman bagi arah dan tujuan praktik hidup yang dijalankan masyarakat Indonesia sebagai negara merdeka. Pancasila adalah suatu teori tentang praktik negara dan berfungsi sebagai ideologi, tetapi sekaligus menjadi teori tentang praktik hidup masyarakat Indonesia, dan menjadi Weltanschauung, suatu visi tentang dunia yang menentukan orientasi masyarakat Indonesia terhadap dunia. Was ist Weltanschauung? Apa itu Weltanschauung? Itulah pertanyaan filosof Karl Jaspers dalam studinya yang luas dan komprehensif, Psychologie der Weltanschauungen.

Menurut Jaspers, visi tentang dunia atau Weltanschauung selalu bersifat filosofis karena dia menjadi pengetahuan tentang keseluruhan, tentang yang universal, yang merupakan watak pengetahuan filosofis. Bedanya dari sistem filsafat ialah Weltanschauung tidak hanya berupa pengetahuan tentang keseluruhan, tetapi bahwa pengetahuan itu membawa akibat yang menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa, menjadi seelische Wirklichkeit der Wirkung.

Tugas pemimpin politik

Tak begitu jelas apakah Bung Karno membaca karya Jaspers atau tidak, tetapi nyatanya dia juga menyatakan Pancasila adalah suatu philosophische grondslag, suatu dasar filsafat dan filsafat dasar bagi Indonesia, dan bahkan bagi negara lain di dunia yang mau menerapkannya. Namun, filsafat dasar itu tak akan hidup kecuali kalau dia dijalankan dan dihayati menjadi praktik hidup. Suatu ideologi negara, menurut Bung Karno, selalu punya dua fungsi utama: fungsi statis (mempersatukan semua unsur masyarakat ke dalam satu negara), dan fungsi dinamis (memberi arah ke mana negara dan masyarakat itu digerakkan). Peran pemimpin politik tak dapat diabaikan karena dia bertugas mengaktifkan masyarakatnya untuk menjalankan praktik hidup yang merealisasikan tujuan yang ditetapkan dalam suatu ideologi. Dalam tugas itu pemimpin politik harus melakukan tiga hal dalam tiga langkah.

Pertama, pemimpin politik harus sanggup melukiskan cita-cita negara dan masyarakatnya sebagai tujuan dan impian yang menarik, atraktif, dan appealing. Apakah ada politisi kita sekarang ini yang sanggup melukiskan kesejahteraan sosial bagi seluruh masyarakat sebagai gagasan atraktif bagi kehidupan bersama dan ide yang memikat bagi kaum muda? Apakah ada kemampuan politisi berbicara tentang kemanusiaan yang adil dan beradab sebagai cita-cita dan nilai yang layak dikejar dan diwujudkan dalam praktik hidup karena cita-cita itu punya daya tarik yang menimbulkan pesona dan memberi ilham yang menggairahkan? Apakah pembicaraan tentang kebangsaan masih menggelitik patriotisme, dengan rasa bangga dan rasa syukur, bahwa ada suatu tempat di alam semesta ini yang menjadi tanah air yang kita miliki, dan sekaligus memiliki diri kita sebagai rakyatnya-a homeland which belongs to us, and to which we all belong?

Pernahkah kita mendengar politisi kita berbicara musyawarah dan mufakat sebagai local genius Indonesia dalam memecahkan masalah dan mencapai konsensus rasional, sambil menimbulkan rasa hormat dan bermartabat kepada pihak yang beda pandangan? Di atas segalanya, apakah kita masih menyebut nama Tuhan dengan rasa tremendum et fascinans, dengan gentar dan terpukau karena kekudusan-Nya, dan apakah ingatan akan nama-Nya sanggup menahan kita dari nafsu berfoya-foya kekuasaan dan keserakahan?

Kedua, pemimpin politik tak cukup hanya menimbulkan rasa tertarik atau terpesona, tetapi harus sanggup memberikan sugesti kepada masyarakatnya sehingga anggota masyarakat itu merasa mampu mewujudkan cita-cita yang dilukiskan. Rasa mampu itu melahirkan keyakinan tentang tekad dan kesanggupan mencapai cita-cita, dan menjelmakan cita-cita menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa, menjadi seelische Wirklichkeit menurut Jaspers. Sugesti menjadi kuat kalau apa yang dikatakan sejauh mungkin diilustrasikan juga dalam perbuatan. Perasaan mampu akan diteguhkan apabila rasa itu mendapat pengejawantahannya dalam praktik hidup yang dapat dilihat dan dialami.

Di sini budaya politik jadi penting dan memainkan peran instrumental dalam pendidikan ideologi. Budaya politik dibentuk oleh elite politik. Apa yang dilakukan elite politik dalam praktik hidup-baik atau buruk-seakan menjadi fashion show bagi rakyat yang melihat dan cenderung mencontohinya. Trickle-down effect dalam budaya politik berlangsung jauh lebih cepat daripada trickle-down effect dalam pemerataan kemakmuran ekonomi. Perbedaannya, tiadanya tetesan ke bawah dalam pemerataan hasil pertumbuhan ekonomi tidak dengan sendirinya memperlemah pertumbuhan ekonomi. Sebaliknya, tiadanya tetesan ke bawah dalam praktik hidup elite politik hampir pasti memperlemah ideologi yang dicoba diaktualisasikan dalam masyarakat.

Suatu pendidikan ideologi dengan kurikulum yang tersusun rapi, dan dengan metodik dan didaktik yang paling modern pun, akan mudah digagalkan oleh tiadanya dukungan budaya politik dari elite politik melalui praktik hidup mereka.

Ketiga, pemimpin politik harus dapat memfasilitasi peralihan dari adanya rasa mampu ke pembentukan kemampuan yang riil. Dia mendorong peralihan dari kenyataan dalam jiwa menjadi kenyataan dalam praktik hidup. Ibaratnya, seorang pemimpin politik memikat pendengarnya melalui presentasi tentang sebuah destinasi wisata lewat panorama yang diperlihatkannya melalui film dokumenter. Dia sanggup menimbulkan ketertarikan serta keinginan dan lambat laun muncul rasa mampu dan tekad pada pendengarnya untuk mengunjungi destinasi dimaksud. Langkah yang menentukan adalah membuat pendengarnya mulai menghemat pengeluaran, membatasi belanja harian, mengumpulkan dana, mencari informasi sebanyak-banyaknya tentang destinasi itu, mempelajari alur perjalanan yang paling murah, mengontak teman-temannya untuk bepergian bersama, kemudian membeli tiket dan selanjutnya terbang atau naik kapal laut ke destinasi yang demikian diidamkan dengan membawa program liburan yang sudah tersusun. Pada saat itu kenyataan dalam jiwa menjelma jadi kenyataan dalam praktik hidup.

Kesetiaan yang tetap

Inilah tiga langkah bagi seorang pemimpin politik dalam mengaktifkan masyarakat dan menggerakkan anggota masyarakat itu ke arah cita-cita yang ada dalam ideologi, sebagaimana diuraikan panjang lebar oleh Bung Karno dalam kursus yang diberikannya kepada para kader Pancasila di Istana Negara pada 26 Mei 1958. Tiga langkah itu adalah gerak-maju dari atraksi ke sugesti dan selanjutnya ke aktualisasi. Kalau ada kesan dewasa ini bahwa Pancasila sebagai ideologi negara kita kian kurang diperhatikan, pertanyaannya: pada tahapan mana dan langkah ke berapa ada hambatan menghidupkan Pancasila sebagai ideologi? Apakah kurang ada usaha sosialisasi atraktif tentang Pancasila, apakah tak ada kemampuan politisi memberi sugesti tentang rasa mampu mewujudkan Pancasila sebagai praktik hidup? Ataukah terputus transisi dari rasa mampu ke pembentukan kemampuan riil untuk merealisasikan Pancasila sebagai pedoman praktik hidup dalam negara dan masyarakat Indonesia?

Pancasila digagaskan konseptornya sebagai Staatsphilosophie (filsafat negara) dan sekaligus Lebensphilosophie (filsafat hidup masyarakat sebagai warga sebuah negara). Sebagai filsafat negara, Pancasila akan hidup dalam kebijakan dan ketetapan yang dibuat negara, dan dalam berbagai tindakan yang dilakukan negara. Apakah tiap kebijakan dan ketetapan negara mempertimbangkan kelima prinsip dalam Pancasila sebagai pemberi arah bagi politik yang dijalankan negara? Memang ini tugas yang berat baik bagi eksekutif, legislatif, maupun badan pengadilan.

Setiap kali mereka harus menimbang apakah keputusan itu tidak menyalahi asas Ketuhanan Yang Maha Esa, berupa kepercayaan kepada Tuhan yang satu? Apakah suatu kebijakan masih menghormati atau sudah mengabaikan asas kemanusiaan yang adil dan beradab, yang percaya setiap orang pada dasarnya merindukan dan berhak atas keadilan dan punya bakat untuk peradaban yang baik, kalau dia dihormati secara layak dan dijunjung martabatnya sebagai manusia? Pepatah asing, under the skin we are all the same (di bawah kulit semua kita adalah sama). Apakah dengan merujuk sila kebangsaan, kedaulatan negara masih dijaga dan dipertahankan, dan rakyat berhak mendapatkan perlindungan dari negaranya?

Apakah kebijakan ekonomi masih menerapkan keharusan menciptakan kesejahteraan bagi seluruh rakyat dan bukannya membiarkan melebarnya kesenjangan amat mencolok antara kaya dan miskin, yang beruntung dan kurang beruntung? Apakah demokrasi kita hanya mengutamakan demokrasi politik dan kebebasan setiap individu, tetapi mengabaikan demokrasi ekonomi, sambil menutup mata terhadap kenyataan bahwa inequalities (ketidakmerataan) yang tidak diatasi secara waspada dapat membawa kita kepada injustice (ketidakadilan)?

Sebagai filsafat hidup, Pancasila menetapkan bahwa sebagai warga negara Indonesia, semua rakyat adalah sama, dengan satu pegangan, yaitu before the law we are all the same (di depan hukum negara kita semua adalah sama). Namun, dalam praktik, ini harus dicoba terus-menerus.

Perbedaan sebagai anggota kelompok agama atau kelompok budaya dapat diakomodasi karena ada kesamaan dasar sebagai warga negara Indonesia. Kesulitan yang muncul dari berbagai perbedaan dapat diatasi apabila asumsi tentang perbedaan itu bisa diubah, yaitu bahwa perbedaan bukanlah bahaya yang mengancam, tetapi kesempatan untuk menjadi semakin matang karena adanya proses belajar mengenai apa yang tidak kita kenal dalam kelompok kita sendiri dan memahami mengapa hal yang aneh dan trivial dalam perasaan kita, untuk pihak lain menjadi penting dan bahkan amat penting. Pengertian baru itu tak perlu mengubah pendirian dan keyakinan kita sendiri, tetapi dapat memperluas wawasan memperkaya pengalaman kita sebagai pribadi yang kian matang dan warga negara yang  dewasa, terbuka, dan demokratis, dengan rasa kemanusiaan yang semakin tinggi.

Pancasila dapat menjadi ideologi subur di antara rakyat Indonesia hanya kalau ada usaha terus-menerus dari negara maupun masyarakat untuk menerapkannya dalam praktik hidup seperti berulang kali  ditegaskan Bung Karno. Pancasila dapat menjadi pegangan kalau dia menjelma menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa yang kemudian  diaktualisasikan  dalam tindak-perbuatan.

Presiden Jokowi memperkenalkan semboyan menarik untuk pemerintahannya, "kerja, kerja, kerja". Semboyan itu akan semakin hebat dan menggairahkan kalau kerja yang dilaksanakan tak menjadi sebarang praktik yang diharuskan oleh tugas, tetapi sekaligus menjadi praksis yang menerjemahkan cita-cita Pancasila sebagai praktik hidup dalam negara dan bangsa. Praksis itu patut dicoba dan dilaksanakan terus-menerus dengan berhasil atau kurang berhasil, tetapi dengan kesetiaan yang tetap. Pepatah Bung Karno: hanya dengan terus-menerus mengalir ke laut, sebuah sungai tetap setia kepada sumber airnya.

          MagForce AG Publishes Financial Results for the Year 2016 and Operative Highlights   

- Continued Expansion of Commercialization of NanoTherm Therapy for the Treatment of Brain Tumors in Europe; Obtaining Domestic Reimbursement Ahead and Streamlined Implementation of Cross-Border Process
- Second Clinical Treatment Site for the Treatment of Intermediate Prostate Cancer in the US Established at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; IDE Approval Process with the FDA Progressing
- Successful Capital Increase with Renowned UK-Based M&G International Investments with Gross Proceeds of EUR 5.0 Million Mainly to Accelerate the On-Going International Expansion (After Period-End)

BERLIN, GERMANY and NEVADA / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2017 / MagForce AG (FRA: MF6, Scale: MF6, XETRA: MF6, ISIN: DE000A0HGQF5), a leading medical device company in the field of nanomedicine focused on oncology, published today its financial results as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016 as well as operative highlights.

Operative Highlights:

Treatment of Brain Cancer in Europe:

MagForce AG is continuing to expand the commercialization of its innovative NanoTherm therapy for the treatment of brain cancer in Europe. In their quest to improve patient care, the neurosurgeons applying NanoTherm therapy for the treatment of brain tumors continue to find additional medical benefits when NanoTherm therapy is incorporated into their primary treatment regimen.

MagForce presented at many renowned conferences and congresses, which increases the awareness of its unique therapy within the main target groups, such as the medical community, patient advocacy groups, patients, their relatives, and caregivers. The Company is also increasingly receiving positive feedback from patients regarding their experiences with the NanoTherm therapy.

During 2016, MagForce has streamlined the implementation of the cross-border reimbursement process, however, due to the aggressiveness of glioblastoma, there is a limited time interval to achieve treatment. In order to give patients the benefit from the NanoTherm treatment, the Company continues to increase the medical awareness of the value of NanoTherm therapy to encourage patients and neurosurgeons to consider NanoTherm therapy earlier following the diagnosis of their tumor status.

The current roll-out plan sees MagForce placing its NanoActivator devices in a number of European countries and thus enabling patients to be treated in their home countries. Facilitating treatment of patients in their home countries will also simplify reimbursement in those countries where MagForce already has the CE mark approval for the treatment of brain tumors. Amongst others, MagForce's commercial and medical teams have identified Poland, Italy, Switzerland, and Spain as suitable countries for NanoTherm treatment centers.

At the same time, MagForce is in the process of obtaining domestic reimbursement for NanoTherm therapy in Germany.

Treatment of Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer in the USA:

MagForce USA, Inc. had filed an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) with the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for NanoTherm therapy to treat Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer. During 2016, MagForce USA repeated and updated the pre-clinical studies (originally conducted in Germany about 10 years ago) with its clinical NanoActivator installed at University of Washington 2015.

The results of these pre-clinical studies and the proposed clinical trial protocol were submitted to the FDA in late fourth quarter, 2016. An in-person follow-up meeting with FDA representatives was held in early January 2017 to discuss MagForce's submissions and identify required clarification. This meeting was again very productive and MagForce believes it can successfully address their questions.

MagForce plans another in-person meeting with the FDA in the near future to determine if its proposed approach to address their requests is accepted.

The key to achieving the Company's goals is to continue to establish clinical treatment sites and obtain the necessary administrative approvals. MagForce has completed the installation of the NanoActivator at a second site located at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.

While MagForce is now approximately six months behind schedule, the Management is still confident and will make every effort to achieve its original targets in terms of market entry and commercialization of NanoTherm therapy in the USA - which is projected for 2018.

Results of Operations, Net Assets, and Financial Position

Non-GAAP financial measures are used by MagForce's management to make operating decisions because they facilitate internal comparisons of MagForce's performance to historical results. The Non GAAP measures are presented in the year-end financial publication as MagForce's management believes that they will provide investors with means of evaluating, and an understanding of how MagForce's management evaluates, MagForce's performance and results on a comparable basis that is not otherwise apparent on a German GAAP basis, since many non-recurring, infrequent or non-cash items that MagForce's management believes are not indicative of the core performance of the business may not be excluded when preparing financial measures under German GAAP.

These Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or superior to financial measures prepared in accordance with German GAAP.

Net Loss for the business year was EUR 7,231 thousand (prior year: EUR 1,547 thousand). Non-GAAP net loss remained almost stable at EUR 5,107 thousand (prior year: EUR 5,050 thousand).

Compared to the prior year period personnel expenses increased by EUR 262 thousand to EUR 3,252 thousand (prior year: EUR 2,990 thousand) due to an increased average number of employees in 2016 (29; prior year: 23).

Revenue and Other Operating Income amounted to EUR 1,581 thousand (prior year: EUR 7,702), while Non-GAAP revenue and other operating income increased by EUR 136 thousand to EUR 1,581 thousand (prior year: EUR 1,445 thousand). The Non-GAAP increase chiefly stems from higher recharges to subsidiaries. Revenue and other operating income were adjusted to arrive at Non-GAAP figures by the prior-year amounts resulting from the extension of the distribution and development rights for the countries Canada and Mexico in January 2015 (EUR 3,033 thousand), the sale of four NanoActivator devices to MagForce USA, Inc. (EUR 2,421 thousand) and by the write-up of the loans of MT MedTech GmbH (EUR 803 thousand).

Other operating expenses increased to EUR 4,309 thousand (prior year: EUR 3,173 thousand), while Non-GAAP operating expenses remained almost stable at EUR 6,918 thousand (prior year: EUR 6,824 thousand). Other operating expenses were adjusted for the impairment of the loans to MT MedTech GmbH in the amount of EUR 1,218 thousand (prior year: nil) to arrive at Non-GAAP.

Cash outflows from operating activities amounted to EUR -6,575 thousand (prior year: EUR -5,185 thousand).

Cash inflows from investing activities amounted to EUR 3,073 thousand (prior year: Cash outflow of EUR -2,575 thousand). Cash inflows for the year 2016 are largely due to repayments of short-term loans in the amount of EUR 3,000 thousand. Cash flows from financing activities amounted to EUR 2,723 (prior year: EUR nil).

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2016 amounted to EUR 614 thousand (prior year: EUR 1,393 thousand).

Capital Market Transactions and Funding of the Company After the End of Period

To improve liquidity and to ensure the development of new products beyond 2017 the Company issued a EUR 5.0 million convertible loan on March 2, 2017, with a maturity of 3 years, an interest rate of 5% p.a., and a conversion price at EUR 5.00 per share. Furthermore, Lipps & Associates LLC continues providing lines of funds to support expansion plans as a means of non-dilutive funding.

In addition on June 28, 2017, MagForce AG resolved and successfully implemented a capital increase from authorized capital. The Company's share capital will, therefore, be increased from EUR 25,622,711.00 to EUR 26,343,172.00 by issuing 720,461 new no-par-value shares at a price of EUR 6,94 per share by partially utilizing existing authorized capital against cash contributions. All new shares were subscribed by UK-based M&G International Investments Ltd. in a private placement. Gross proceeds for MagForce AG amount to EUR 5.0 million. The additional capital will be mainly used to accelerate the on-go
