          RE-RITE - Instalação audiovisual interactiva   




Em 12 de Janeiro de 2011 estivemos na instalação multimédia interactiva – RE-RITE –, um projecto da Philarmonia Orchestra de Londres que ocupou um piso nunca antes aberto ao público do edifício do MUDE – Museu do Design e da Moda de Lisboa.
“O Projecto RE-RITE consiste numa instalação interactiva na qual fluem várias imagens vídeo da Philarmonia Orchestra a interpretar A Sagração da Primavera de Igor Stravinsky, conduzida por Esa-Pekka Salonen. Assemelhando-se a um puzzle, o projecto consiste numa revolucionária instalação digital filmada com 29 câmaras distintas e com microfones em todas as secções da orquestra. As projecções dos vídeos são apresentadas em tamanho maior que o real e acompanhadas do respectivo som em toda a instalação, permitindo observar secções específicas de instrumentos como se o espectador estivesse no meio da Orquestra”. http://www.mude.pt/catalogoEaugusta/Temps/re-rite.html


          COMO SE FAZ UM TRABALHO DE GRUPO   

Grande parte da actividade que desenvolves em AP decorre em trabalho de grupo. Esta circunstância deve-se ao facto de o trabalho de grupo promover um conjunto de competências que vais necessitar na tua vida académica e profissional.

De entre as muitas vantagens do trabalho de equipa, que justificam o recurso a esta forma de trabalhar, destacaremos algumas competências que promovem: 

a cooperação entre os seus membros;
a discussão de ideias e a reflexão sobre as questões;
o aperfeiçoamento de técnicas de comunicação;
a organização do trabalho.

Um bom grupo de trabalho

Um bom grupo de trabalho tem de ter duas condições essenciais: ter objectivos claros e desejar ser bem sucedido. Contrariamente ao que vulgarmente se pensa, a heterogeneidade e a diferença dos membros que constituem um grupo são factores que promovem um trabalho mais produtivo e que favorecem a solidariedade entre os seus membros. Muitas vezes um grupo falha nos seus objectivos e a qualidade de trabalho fica aquém das expectativas porque o grupo é constituído por um conjunto de pessoas que partilham dos mesmos pontos de vista ou que estão ligadas fundamentalmente por questões de amizade.

Contudo, para que um grupo funcione e o trabalho renda, há um conjunto de regras que devem ser respeitadas:

os elementos que o compõem devem procurar tomar decisões por unanimidade;
cada elemento tem de ter disponibilidade para fazer concessões;
nenhum membro deve impor a sua opinião ou perspectiva;
deve-se encarar a crítica como um factor de promoção da qualidade do trabalho;
o conflito é inerente ao trabalho de grupo devendo ser visto como normal no processo de trabalho e como um factor de crescimento colectivo e individual;
todos os membros têm de trabalhar: se um membro não trabalha, o rendimento do grupo está comprometido e as relações entram em crise;
os elementos do grupo fazem a avaliação dos resultados do trabalho bem como da participação de cada um: fazer a auto e hetero-avaliação.

Como trabalhar

Para que uma sessão de trabalho renda, é preciso que todos os seus membros:

saibam claramente sobre o que se vai trabalhar
cheguem a acordo sobre os limites do tema ou subtema que estão a desenvolver;
definam prioridades e objectivos parcelares a atingir em cada etapa de trabalho;
partilhem a informação e os recursos;
registem as ideias, decisões e planos;
fixem prazos;
distribuam as tarefas e designem os responsáveis;
percebam e respeitem a distribuição das tarefas;
identifiquem os meios e recursos necessários para o desenvolvimento do trabalho;  
cheguem a conclusões;
sejam disciplinados e responsáveis;
tenham confiança e sejam solidários entre si.

Problemas no grupo

A diversidade e a heterogeneidade inerente a um bom grupo de trabalho geram conflitos: de opiniões, de perspectivas, de formas de actuação. Contudo, não são os conflitos que têm esta origem que podem pôr em causa o trabalho de grupo. Até são condição do desenvolvimento de um trabalho produtivo e de qualidade. Há no entanto, problemas que podem comprometer o rendimento de uma equipa.

Os principais problemas que podem surgir num grupo de trabalho são:

o desinteresse de um ou vários membros;
os conflitos de liderança;
a falta de lealdade;
as dificuldades na aplicação do plano de trabalho.

Se o grupo em que estás integrado vive alguns destes problemas, partilhem-nos com o professor. Um elemento experiente e externo ao grupo pode ajudar a superar a crise.

Early Quakers and the Kingdom of God

SO I turned to this book because I’m one of those peculiar people who read early Quaker tracts and I was looking for theological and historical context in which to understand what I was reading. This book delivers. I now have a better appreciation of how what is going on in the texts I am reading may be quite different depending on whether they were written in the interregnum or the restoration.https://feastofstephen.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/review-the-early-quakers-and-the-kingdom-of-god-peace-testimony-and-revolutionSee More

          Fairline announces new OPEN addition to the 53ft range   

Photo

The 53ft range has taken the same state-of-the-art technologies and industry-leading production methods the successful 48ft range benefits from and developed them further, creating a boat that not only allows the customer to design the interior styling and layout around their unique needs but also delivers against Fairline’s reputation of high quality, innovative yacht design.

Available from spring 2016, the new Targa 53 OPEN will feature uninterrupted entertaining above decks from the platform to companionway. The boat incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing which emphasises the dynamic character of the Targa concept and ensures that the spacious master cabin, lower galley and saloon below, are filled with natural light. Customers are also able to choose between a two cabin or three cabin configuration that best suits their individual requirements.

The cockpit boats a spacious three person sun bed above the tender garage, large ‘L’ shaped cockpit seating with a wet bar opposite and spacious companion seating across from the helm, the perfect arrangement for maximising enjoyment onboard. The Targa 53 OPEN will offer a choice of two shaft driven, Volvo engine options, offering a minimum fully loaded speed in excess of 30 knots and a range of at least 300 nautical miles. There will also be the option to add stabilisation, with the boat accepting both fin and gyroscopic stabilisers offering the highest level of comfort onboard.

Douglas Culverwell Sales and Marketing Director  at Fairline Boats commented: “Following positive feedback from our 53ft range announcement and strong forward order books for the Targa 53GT and Squadron 53, we are excited to be adding the Targa 53 OPEN. All models will have a common platform approach which offer flexibility of layout and options to suit the individual customer and are at the heart of Fairline’s new design philosophy. “


          Fairline announces new dealer for the South Coast of the UK   

Photo

This progresses an already strong relationship between the two businesses and will ensure that Fairline customers continue to receive the best service across the South Coast, seven days a week. Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd is a fifth-generation family business, established over 100 years ago.

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd will operate the Fairline Southampton offices and berths as well as continuing to represent Fairline from its offices in Poole, Chertsey and Eastbourne. The state of the art facilities owned by Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd in Chertsey, Surrey will be known as Fairline London and offer customers the largest indoor showroom on the River Thames and a 100-berth marina. This location also benefits from convenient transport links into London.

These South Coast dealerships strengthen Fairline’s current UK representation that includes Fairline Wales and Fairline Channel Islands, ensuring customers find their perfect Fairline.

Douglas Culverwell, Regional Sales Director for Europe at Fairline Boats, commented: “This is exciting news for Fairline and ensures we maintain key coverage across the South Coast of the UK. Richard Bates and his team have a wealth of marine experience which our customers can really benefit from.”

Richard Bates, Managing Director at Bates Wharf Marine Sales, commented: “We are delighted to be representing Fairline across the South Coast. We are a family business and are passionate about selling boats and offering first-class customer service. We have a fantastic working relationship with Fairline and it is a real honour to be working with such a prestigious British brand. We look forward to exciting times ahead!”

Colin Sykes, CEO at Fairline Boats, commented: “We are extremely pleased to have Bates Wharf Marine Sales representing us in this key boating region of the United Kingdom and look forward to sharing the continued success of our brand in partnership with Bates Wharf. We are currently working on other regional appointments and expect these will fit well with this partnership.”

          Fairline Chertsey celebrates delivery of its first Squadron 65

Prior to delivery, Fairline Chertsey’s Dealer Principal, Richard Bates, accompanied the Squadron’s new owners to the Fairline Yacht Division’s on-water facility in Ipswich for a two day handover and sea trials.

The Squadron 65 will now make her way to Southampton and then on to her final destination in Marina de Denia, Spain, at the end of April. The boat’s owners placed their order after the Southampton Boat Show, having previously owned a Fairline Phantom 50, and are delighted with their new Squadron. The sale is representative of the popularity of the design and quality of the Fairline range among Fairline Chertsey’s customer base.

Richard Bates commented: “When we joined the Fairline dealer network last September, little did we expect our first sale to be a new Squadron 65! Both the team here at Fairline Chertsey and the customer has been impressed by the overall ease and efficiency of the order and build process and the consequent technical handover and sea trials. We are thrilled to be able to offer our existing client base the prestigious Fairline brand from our Chertsey and Eastbourne locations. It’s an exciting opportunity for us.”

James Powell, Fairline International Sales Manager said: “It’s great to see Fairline Chertsey enjoying success so soon after their appointment. With exquisite showroom and marina facilities at Chertsey, Richard and his team are ideally placed to service the needs of customers who live south west of London. In addition, Fairline Eastbourne provides a second UK south coast location for the Fairline brand at Sovereign Harbour. With many of the 2,500 berths in Eastbourne and Brighton marinas already home to a number of Fairline owners we eagerly anticipate further sales across the region.”

Fairline Chertsey covers six acres, including 100 Marina berths, and offers the largest boat showroom and chandlery on the River Thames. Fairline Eastbourne is located in one of the UK’s largest marina village developments, Sovereign Harbour, making it ideally suited to handle larger power boats, offering travel hoist, yard and workshop facilities as well as dedicated sales berths.


          Fairline exhibits best of British across the globe   

Photo

The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami saw Fairline’s new Targa 48 OPEN make its highly anticipated US debut. The beautiful sports cruiser was unveiled from beneath a huge union flag during the launch, showcasing British design and manufacturing at its very best. The first of three models in the brand’s new 48ft range, the Targa 48 OPEN is created at Fairline’s state-of-the-art £2.6m manufacturing facility in Corby, using the latest technologies and industry-leading production systems.

Fairline also exhibited two models from the iconic new 48ft range in Istanbul, during the CNR International Eurasia Boat Show at the end of the month. The world’s second biggest boat and yacht exhibition on land, the show typically attracts over 1,000 high-quality brands. The stylish Targa 48 OPEN and Squadron 48 were admired by visitors from all over Europe, Asia and the Middle East, alongside four other models from the Fairline range. The show saw a healthy level of sales, with the final total exceeding last year’s figures.  

Kevin Gaskell, CEO of Fairline, commented: “We are proud to be showcasing the very best of British craftsmanship, manufactured right here in Corby and Oundle, across the world. The response from the US audience to the debut of the Targa 48 OPEN was very positive and visitors to the show in Istanbul admired our two 48ft models in particular. The year ahead promises to be an exciting one for Fairline, with planned attendance at boat shows in China, Japan, Australia, South Africa and across Europe. The success of these boats on a global platform is down to our talented British designers and factory teams in Oundle, without whom we wouldn’t have the outstanding boats to showcase.”


          Fairline announces new authorised dealer for Chertsey and Eastbourne   

Photo

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd will represent the brand from two sites, trading as Fairline Chertsey and Fairline Eastbourne and will work alongside the existing Fairline UK dealer network, including Fairline Essex and Fairline Southampton. This announcement sees the dealer network further expand to respond to global demands, and follows a 20% increase in representative dealers in 2012.

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd has head offices in Chertsey, Surrey, on a site which covers six acres, includes 100 Marina berths and offers the largest boat showroom and chandlery on the River Thames. Surrounded by beautiful rural scenery, Fairline Chertsey is ideally placed, with convenient transport links to London. Fairline Eastbourne is based at the company’s Sovereign Harbour sales office, which is ideally suited to handle larger power boats, offering travel hoist, yard and workshop facilities as well as dedicated sales berths.   

Last week, Fairline Eastbourne celebrated its new authorised dealer status by hosting the first leg of the South Coast Marina Tour of the new Fairline Targa 48 OPEN, the first of a trio of new 48ft models, at Sovereign Harbour. The tour continues until the August bank holiday and includes visits to a huge variety of popular marinas and anchorages between Eastbourne and Poole.

Richard Bates, Managing Director at Fairline Chertsey and Fairline Eastbourne, commented: “Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd is a fourth generation family business, with its roots in boat building, drawing expertise from over 100 years’ experience in the marine industry. We have always admired the British quality, style and presence of the entire Fairline range and it is a great honour to have been appointed as an authorised dealer for such a prestigious British brand. It was great to kick off the South Coast Marina Tour of the new Targa 48 OPEN and we are really looking forward to supporting the exciting plans and new boat launches the company has planned for the rest of this year.”

James Powell, Fairline's Head of Sales, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd to the Fairline network. These two new dealerships will give Fairline important coverage in the West London and Eastbourne areas and Richard and his team bring with them a wealth of experience which our customers will benefit from. At Fairline we put a great deal of emphasis on ensuring that our dealers are of the highest calibre, with a vast understanding of the industry and their markets.”

The new dealer, which will trade as Fairline Eastbourne and Fairline Chertsey, will be hosting the start of the tour at Eastbourne Marina. The Targa 48 OPEN will be situated at the Sovereign Harbour from the 9th – 11th August.   

The 48 OPEN is an exciting new addition to the Fairline Targa range and is set to take the true Mediterranean spirit and style to the rest of the world. This twin cabin, double en-suite model is the perfect choice for those who favour free-flowing sociable areas both inside and out, enhanced by the large electric canvas roof that opens it to the skies above.


          The Targa 48 OPEN South Coast Marina Tour

The Targa 48 OPEN will be available for viewings and sea trials for registered customers and prospective owners to discover the very best of this spectacular new model. She will depart from the Fairline Test Centre at Ipswich, travelling down the East Coast to begin her tour at Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne before cruising down the Thames Estuary and around the South East headland, past Brighton down the Solent to Poole and returning to end the tour at Fairline Southampton in Swanwick. The South Coast Tour will include visits to a huge variety of popular marinas and anchorages between London and Poole. To register your interest in the tour please visit: www.fairline.com/T48tour.

The new motor yacht is the first of three 48 foot models being launched in the next six months, and is set to become another iconic addition to the range. The Targa 48 OPEN was created in Fairline’s new £2.6m Corby facility using the latest technology and features a dynamic new hull, as well as significant weight savings that clearly set her apart from the competition.

James Powell, International Sales Manager comments: “The South Coast Tour is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to come along and see and experience the latest spectacular model from Fairline Boats for themselves prior to the start of the autumn boat show season. We have received some very positive feedback from the recent sea trials and the Goodwood Festival of Speed launch event and with her flawless sea-keeping and design innovations, the Targa 48 OPEN epitomises British engineering and manufacturing at its best. We are looking forward to exploring the beautiful English coastline, meeting up with the many existing Fairline owners who keep their boats along the South Coast, and welcoming many newcomers to the brand onboard. We would encourage everyone to register their interest early as we’ve already seen a fantastic demand to view the Targa 48 OPEN on location during the tour.”

The Targa 48 OPEN is the latest exciting new model from Fairline and is the first of the 48ft range.  She will be closely followed by the launch of the Squadron 48 at the 2013 PSP Southampton Boat Show, and the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show in 2014.

          Re: Does Your Patent Attorney Possess ‘Reasonable Skill and Knowledge’?    

Are you suggesting that a patent attorney might actually draft and prosecute a claim that they (or their client) actually know/believe to be invalid? I think that the high water mark for such a circumstance, at least insofar as litigated patents are concerned, is probably Les Laboratoires Servier failing to heed its Australian attorneys' advice to incorporate additional disclosure of the 'best method' in its specification (see Patentee Punished for Failing to Heed Attorney’s Recommendation). In that case, of course, the court exercised its discretion to disallow the amendment in the first place, so the question of limiting damages under s 115 never arose (although Servier could have rectified the deficiency before the Patent Office under s 104, had it the foresight to do so).

More commonly, knowledge of invalidity arises at some later date, perhaps because of the preference, as you rightly note, to err on the side of breadth in the absence of any reason to act otherwise. The court appears to have been quite sympathetic to this reality, notwithstanding the suggestion that there may be some 'gap' between the bad faith of 'covetous claiming' and the 'good faith' require by s 115(1) (see, e.g., [39]-[47] of the decision). I doubt, therefore, that drafting broadly is a problem, in and of itself, so long as it is done competently and in good faith.

I take your point, however. Section 115, on its face, is concerned with the specification as a whole, and it does not appear that it would matter that there may be an infringed claim that is wholly untouched by an amendment. Although the argument could be made that a patent specification which includes at least one valid and successfully enforceable claim has surely been drafted with reasonable skill and knowledge! And if the invalid claim was obtained in something other than good faith, then passing on the amendment may not save the day anyway - there is always the possibility of an attack under s 138(3)(d).


          Re: Does Your Patent Attorney Possess ‘Reasonable Skill and Knowledge’?    

It will be interesting if this issue is ever addressed in a case where a knowingly invalid claim has sat alongside a valid independent claim. In such a case it may be safer to leave the invalid claim in place and merely sue on the valid claim.
It also raises the issue that in drafting we would generally err on the side of an overly broad claim, rather than a too-narrow one (noting that broadening amendments may not be possible in some jurisdictions). This case suggests that one needs to be cautious with such an approach, at least in some instances.


          Re: Reforms Cut Average Patent Opposition Delays by Two Years, But They Still Take Too Long    

Hi Fran,

Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate the willingness of IP Australia to engage with these articles!

I understand your desire to be consultative and cooperative with the parties in setting a hearing date, but I honestly wonder if you are not too lenient in this? Non-availability of attorneys, counsel and experts is no longer a basis for an extension of time to file evidence - even though it is quite likely that at least one of the many people who may be involved may have leave planned, or some other commitments, during any given three-month period. However, when it comes to setting a hearing date, my experience has been that the parties can effectively set the timetable to suit themselves and the Office will be at pains to accommodate. If Federal Court judges showed a similar level of flexibility in setting dates, I suspect that most patent cases would never get to trial!

In my opinion, the balance is currently not quite right. In many cases, the availability of an additional month to prepare evidence, with a bit more leniency with regard to the causes of delay, could reduce time-pressure on attorneys and experts in particular, and result in better quality outcomes. Average evidence periods could still be kept to around 300 days.

On the other hand, preparation for a hearing is generally a 'last minute' activity, in view of the need to have everything freshly in-mind, and is mostly undertaken within the month prior to the hearing date. There should be no reason, in most cases, for an extended delay once the evidence is complete. If the Office were to move immediately to set a date, it is hard to see why the goal should not be for a hearing to take place within three months, with a decision issued within six months of the close of evidence.

If resourcing is an issue, then I am pleased to know that this is something you are actively working on.

          Re: Regulatory Board Recognises Validity of Publicly-Listed Patent Attorney Structures   

I am beginning to think I may need some special disclosure rules for comments on posts about the state of the Australian IP profession, i.e. whether or not the commenter is a registered Australian patent attorney, whether they are affiliated with, a partner/director of, or employed by an independent firm or listed group firm, and whether or not they own shares in any of the listed firms. Because it is clear to me that these matters inform many of the comments.

Why do you think it 'fair to assume' that the sibling firm scenario was 'purposely omitted from the explanatory memorandum'? That's a pretty serious allegation against IP Australia, the Department of Industry and/or the Minister. And what 'scrutiny' would such an omission have avoided?

I also don't see how you can be so sure that the listed group firms have 'not bothered' to inform overseas or local clients and associates about the changed arrangements. Indeed, I know for a fact that this is untrue in at least one case, and I believe that other firms have acted similarly. I don't think you can read much into what you hear from overseas attorneys. How many newsletters/updates from overseas associates do you think are actually read by the bulk of attorneys within any firm? And you can certainly infer nothing from this about what firms have communicated to their local clients.

While there is certainly a discussion to be had about the changes in the profession (and the TTIPAB is leading that discussion), ill-informed and unsubstantiated allegations do not make a useful contribution.


          Re: Regulatory Board Recognises Validity of Publicly-Listed Patent Attorney Structures   

The scenario involving sibling firms owned by the same holding company (the sibling firm scenario) and operating independently from each other was not predicted in any of the explanatory memorandums that were released before the amendments to the Patents Act commenced in 2013.

Given the scale at which IPH commenced their acquisitions, it is fair to assume that the present scenario of sibling firms was purposely omitted from the explanatory memorandum to avoid any scrutiny.

At the very least, the Board should ask the listed firms to at least inform their clients (including overseas attorney firms) about the new arrangements. As I understand (after having met a few overseas attorneys) these firms have not bothered to inform their overseas clients or their local clients about the new arrangements. So far it has been business as usual.


          Re: Regulatory Board Recognises Validity of Publicly-Listed Patent Attorney Structures   

Hi Doug,

I can't speak for New Zealand, but I think you are overestimating the power of Australian competition law, and of the ACCC to enforce it. Even if the three listed groups were to merge all of their firms we would still have more competition than we do in the supermarket sector, and less price matching than we see in the fuel market. It takes an awful lot to 'substantially lessen competition'. So long as consumers have a genuine choice between genuine competitors (even just two or three, although there is obviously much more competition than that in the Australian IP market) it is unlikely that the arrangements will fall foul of any provisions of the Australian Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

It is also worth noting that consolidation is recognised by economists as a natural consequence of a maturing market across many industries, and it is not the role of competition law to interfere with this process merely because it results in a reduction in the number of independent competitors. Indeed, consolidation can result in efficiencies, concentration of capital and economies of scale that lead to reduction in prices and/or expansion in the range of goods/services available that are beneficial to consumers and the economy.

You will note that it is not so much the Board alluding to competition concerns. The passage you quote is reporting the non-listed firms' stated concerns - hardly a disinterested opinion! Further, I think it is safe to assume that the whole of Part C, Section 1-4 of the paper is essentially a cut-and-paste of Professor Christie's report to the Board. The mooted competition issue is not taken up at all in the Board's views and proposals in Section C.5. What the Board takes out of the 67% figure is that the 'listed group scenario' is a 'significant commercial reality'.

I also happen to know that at least one of the listed firms actually wrote to the ACCC, out of an abundance of caution, to notify them of at least one of their intended acquisitions. From what I hear, not an eyelid was batted. And I am not at all surprised.

          Sabedoria Secreta I   

Sabedoria Secreta I


1 O povo se sentava ao redor do Rabi Yahushua de nazaret, e ouvia com grande reverência. Desejavam eles ouvir as palavras que lhes dariam vida. Eram como ovelhas famintas por alimento.
2 Shimon, estando entre os talmidim, disse: "Nós não conhecemos toda a verdade – e precisamos ouvir o teu ensinamento." 3 Mashiach respondeu: "Muito bem. Tudo que existe depende da Torá, e qualquer pessoa pode encontrar o que está logo abaixo da superfície - enterrado mais profundamente do que nossos olhos. A verdade é como olhar para o branco da lua na água. Se a água é turva, não se pode ver claramente. É como palha ardente no fogo - se a palha está úmida, o fogo não pode queimar incandescente. As verdades da Torá podem ser ocultadas em umidade como esta. Portanto, Shimon, qualquer que deseje seguir o caminho deve deixar os pensamentos, e pôr de lado tudo aquilo que lhe atrapalha a habilidade de aprender toda a verdade." 4 Ser puro e calmo significa ser aberto à pureza e à longanimidade- assim, começa-se a aprender a verdade. Isto significa que a luz pode brilhar, revelando as obras de causa e efeito que conduzem ao shalom. Shimon, saiba disto: as palavras dadas a Mim pelo Pai Celestial alcançam todas as direções. 5 Pessoas lutam para tentar aprender coisas demais por vez. Essa luta, contudo, cria um desejo de fazer alguma coisa. O fazer cria um movimento que pode resultar em ansiedade. Então, é impossível encontrar descanso e contentamento. Por isso Eu ensino longanimidade e o aprendizado gradual da Torá, pois na longanimidade não há perturbação. Então, pode-se entrar no Reino dos Céus. 6 Remova de ti aquilo que te atribula e te distrai, e sede puro como alguém que respira em pureza no vazio, confiando em YHWH. Este é o princípio do conhecimento - é o caminho para o shalom e a plenitude. 7 Shimon, saiba disto. O Pai pode ser encontrado através dos céus e da terra. O Filho de Elohim é a expressa imagem do Pai. O Filho é o caminho para o Pai, e pode ser visto entre todas as pessoas que nEle crêem. 8 Aqueles que agem virtuosamente logo atingem uma reputação; mas a fama faz as pessoas agirem de forma diferente. Elas se tornam movidas por ambições mundanas. Isso as torna infladas e define o que fazem. Pessoas como tais nunca podem atingir shalom e plenitude, pois elas não conhecem o Filho e não têm longanimidade dentro delas. 9 Aqueles que não vivem uma vida de humildade e aqueles que buscam a notoriedade servem como seus próprios guias. Contudo, aqueles que são humildes e simples e não almejam servir às suas próprias carnes conhecem o caminho do shalom e da plenitude através do Filho. 10 Shimon, tu deves ver e ouvir a Torá. Não te distraias pelas coisas do mundo. Quando atingires esse nível de entendimento, serás capaz de sentir o sabor da Torá. Abrace a Tora em teu coração. 11 Tende compaixão e sede sempre compassivo sem tentar se exaltar para alguém. Todos serão libertos desta forma – e este é chamado de o caminho para o shalom e para a plenitude. 12 E todo o povo então se levantou e, após se curvarem, cantaram este cântico: 13 "Louvem todos ao Grande Rabino, pois Tu nos ensinas a Torá em verdade. Tal como ela é, e em profundidade e em mistério, além do que pudemos imaginar."

Fonte: Livro das Palavras do Ungido

De Mar Ya’akov HaTsadik (São Thiago) acerca das Palavras do Mashiach

*Mashiach= Ungido, Messias escatológico do judaísmo, que trará um novo período de paz e espiritualidade e uma nova ordem social e economica para todos os povos. Os Netzarim qualificam e reconhecem que o Rabinu Y´shua de Nazaret é o Messias.


*Torah = Conjunto de revelações e intruções da vontade do ser supremo YHWH.

          Eshet Chayil, uma mulher de valor!   

Eshet Chayil, uma mulher de valor!

by Kohen Uriel Ben Levy


Está escrito em Bereshit/Gn 2:18

Transliteração: vayómér YHWH elohím ló´tóv heyôt haádam livaddô ééséh lô êzér kinégiddô

Tradução literal:
"E disse Yáhuéh Elohím: Não é bom que aconteça que o Ádam ("adão") esteja permanente solitário à parte e separado, farei uma que ele possa encontrar auxilio e ajuda e esteja na presença dele". Bereshit/Gn 2.18

Aqui podemos ver o seguinte, pelo conhecimento das palavras hebraicas e pelo discernimento espiritual que:


A) Elohim viu que a missão do homem não poderia ser cumprindo estando solitário, precisaria ser elaborado a partir dele uma força complementar de trabalho e criativade para o bem dele, para dividir tarefas e somar esforços, este ser criativo(a mulher) seria uma espécie de gerente, conselheiro do homem, assim o homem estaria completo e sua missão divina sempre teria sucesso e progresso


B) Quando Yah planeja e executa a criação da Isháh(mulher), Ele a faz já de uma fonte, ou seja, o homem foi quem gerou a mulher apartir da intervenção de Elohim, quando ele diz "ééséh" "Farei", já indica qual é a natureza deste ser gerado apartir do homem, seria um ser cheio de criatividade, trabalho, produção, um ser belo, mas também muito disciplinado, cuja missão ou SUB-MISSÃO era fazer que o trabalho do Homem fosse sempre criativo. produtivo, prospero e fértil.


C) Elohim faz da mulher uma "êzér", isto é " ajudadora, auxiliadora, companheira", sempre que homem necessitasse de "ajuda, auxílio, e companhia (sexual,moral, afetiva) encontraria em sua companheira, sem precisar de uma outra,, pois YAH criou apenas UMA para homem, e não duas!.


D) quer dizer o texto, que o ser feito( a mulher), é do mesmo genero do homem, criado dos mesmos membros, mas que tem uma força criativa incrível, porém, ela para cumprir sua missão, deve está na PRESENÇA DO HOMEM, isto é, em SUB-MISSÃO, submetida ao comando do homem, a liderança do homem, pois sem a liderança do homem que é o Rôsh(o cabeça), ela poderá dissipar suas forças para o mal, quebrando assim sua missão e trazendo grande infortúnio para sua missão e para aquele que está ao seu lado, antes de mais nada, a mulher deve sua vida ao homem que a gerou! então deve mostrar ao seu gerador de vida LEALDADE, E PRONTA PARA OBECEDER ORDENS INTELIGENTE E DE SABEDORIA VINDO DO HOMEM! por isso que os homens não podem ser tolos! pois tolos não dão ordens inteligente e de sabedoria, e mulheres criativas não se submetem a homens tolos! mulheres só se submetem a homens sábios e inteligentes e machos também!


E) A Torah utiliza a palavra "kinégiddô" que tem também estes significas: "estár diante", "na presença", e em "oposição a". Qual o significado?


Que se o homem fugir de sua meta missionária, ELA DEVE COM TERNURA SE OPOR PARA O BEM DO HOMEM, aconselha-lo com sabedoria,perspicácia e desenvoltura, para que o mesmo possa refletir e voltar a sua posição original de Rósh, provedor, gerador e cumpridor das leis e principios que regem o universo, para que o meio ambiente em que vive como rei, possas permanecer sempre em harmonia e em shalom completo. Todavia, a mulher, por sua beleza e criatividade, tende a cair em soberba e vaidade, desta forma, a oposição que ela poderia usar para o bem do homem, podem se tornar desgraça e morte para o homem! pois como Rósh de sua vida, a mulher deve sempre consultar ao homem em tudo que venha fazer, não deve impor nada ao homem, mas deve está sempre em lealdade e obediencia aquele que lhe gerou a vida por meio do poder de YHWH!
Sabemos porém que a mulher caiu no conto do vigarista haSatan, o vendedor dos "comésticos" "cobra venenosa", que oferecia "vida eterna" por meio de um fruto ( se parece com o zeca urubú querendo enrrolar o pica pau!) e esta sem consultar seu lider, adquiriu o fruto venenoso e usou seu poder de criatividade, inteligencia, argumento, sexualidade para impor a seu lider sua vaidade e cobiça! trazendo desgraça a ambos! Antes que encerre meus comentários, louvamos YHWH que enviou seu filho amado YAHSHUA haMashiach para trazer a VIDA DO ETERNO e salvar o homem! e como ele o Mashiach veio para resgatar e redimir o homem? vejamos:

"
E porei inimizade entre ti e a mulher, e entre a tua semente e a sua semente; esta te ferirá a cabeça, e tu lhe ferirás o calcanhar". GN 3:15

"No entanto, haverá um remédio para os filhos da mulher, mas para ti, serpente, não deve haver medicina: mas para eles se preparaá um remédio para o calcanhar nos dias do Rei Messias" Targum Yerushalaim de Gn 3.15


Assim como, o homem pelo poder de Yah gerou a mulher e lhe deu vida ("osso do meu osso, sangue do meu sangue"), agora a mulher recebeu uma grande missão, ela deveria GERAR O ULTIMO ADÃO, O CELESTIAL, para que pudesse salvar e dá vida do eterno aos homens! e trazer a VACINA contra o veneno do pecado! Vejamos outras profecias e o cumprimento:

"
Portanto o mesmo YHWH vos dará um sinal: Eis que a virgem conceberá, e dará à luz um filho, e chamará o seu nome Emanuel".Isaías 7:14

"
Eis que a virgem conceberá, e dará à luz um filho, E chamá-lo-ão pelo nome de IMANU-EL, Que traduzido é: Elohím conosco".Mateus 1:23

"A uma virgem desposada com um homem, cujo nome era Yôsef, da casa de David; e o nome da virgem era Míriam". Lucas 1:27

"Mas, vindo a plenitude dos tempos, Elohím enviou seu Filho, nascido de mulher, nascido sob a Torah". Gálatas 4:4

O Rabbi Yahshua de Netzaret implantou com grande sucesso a escola dos Netzarim, que foi a 25ª escola dos profetas de Israel, que recebeu alunos de todas as demais escolas, pois o Rabinato de Yahshua no momento é abrangente, é de redimir e não condenar, e de ajuntar e não espalhar!
Uma das grandes reformas que o Rabinu fez, foi admitir em seu círculos de estudantes, discípulas(talmidot) mulheres! algo impensável nos circulos farizaico e saduceu! As discípulas exerceram um papel importante na obra e ministério de Yahshua, primeiro que ele nasceu de uma mulher! depois curou diversas mulheres! e poor fim as admitiu nos estudos da torah e da profecia! Assim como as mulheres foram brilhantes no auxílio e execução dos materiais e objetos do Mishkan "tabernáculo", da mesma forma foram generosas no auxílio do ministério de Yahshua, ajudando-o em sua missão, confirmemos pois:

E aconteceu, depois disto, que andava de cidade em cidade, e de aldeia em aldeia, pregando e anunciando o evangelho do reino de YHWH; e os doze iam com ele,
E algumas mulheres que haviam sido curadas de espíritos malignos e de enfermidades: Míriam de magdala, da qual saíram sete demônios; E Ionáh, mulher de Cuza, procurador de Herodes, e Shoshanah, e muitas outras que o serviam com seus bens. Lucas 8:1,2

As mulheres foram grandes auxiliadoras e provedoras do Ministério do Rei Yahushua! baruch haShem YHWH!
Que grandes discípulas!

E as mulheres, que tinham vindo com ele da Galiléia, seguiram também e viram o sepulcro, e como foi posto o seu corpo.
E, voltando elas, prepararam especiarias e ungüentos; e no Shabat repousaram, conforme o mandamento. Lucas 23:55,56


Que mulheres obedientes a YHWH!


Para encerrar, vejamos que a mulher tem grande responsábilidade espiritual, em que deve cumprir seja na qualidade de moça, virgem, esposa,mãe, e membra da Comunidade de Israel. Ambos, Homens e Mulheres tem que individualmente e coletivamente entrar e observar os princípios da Aliança de YHWH Elohím com a Comunidade eleita de Israel. Leiamos a Torah:


Guardai, pois, as palavras desta aliança, e cumpri-as, para que prospereis em tudo quanto fizerdes.
Vós todos estais hoje perante o YHWH vosso Elohím; os capitães de vossas tribos, vossos anciãos, e os vossos oficiais, todos os homens de Israel; Os vossos meninos, as vossas mulheres, e o estrangeiro que está no meio do vosso arraial; desde o rachador da vossa lenha até ao tirador da vossa água; Para entrardes na aliança do YHWH teu Elohím, e no seu juramento que o YHWH teu Elohím hoje faz convosco. Devarim/Deut 29:9-12


Admoesto com amor, que as mulheres nestes aharit hayamim/ultimos días, neste olam hazéh/no mundo presente, em que a união entre um homem e uma mulher está sendo violentada por uma poderosa mídia de mentiras e falsidades com o objetivo em desestimular e menosprezar a atração, o amor e o casamento entre um homem e uma mullher, nunca que a união heterossexual foi tão atacada e banalizada nestes últimos dias! Então há um sistema que se opõe ao plano de Yah para com homem e para com a mulher, e este plano é a Família!
A União HETEROSEXUAL É o único modelo divino de continuação e preservação da vida, do amor, do gozo, da fertilidade, do progresso e das bençãos de Yah sobre a Família que deve ser edificada de acordo com os fundamentos da Torah, a Palavra de YHWH, e por causa desta fidelidade ao plano de YHWH, será e continuará sendo derramadas bênçãos sobre a Família, bênçãos da vida do eterno sobre o meio ambiente em que o homem completo vive! homem e mulher os Criou!!!
Quero dizer, que do ponto de vita metafísico e místico, YHWH se casará com sua Noiva a nova Yahushalaim(jerusalém) , leal, submissa, fiel e pura, que lhe dará uma Multidão de Filhos benditos( que são as nações redimidas!) Aconselho as Varoas exercitarem seus dons em Yahshua, assim saberão cumprir a Sub-missão como auxiliadoras e ajudadoras criativas, fazendo prosperar os vossos Esposos! Da mesma forma aos Varões aconselho que exercitem os dons em Yahshua, e o maior dos dons é o amor, Sacrifiquem-se! Aprendam e pratiquem o amor para com vossas Esposas!
Chamo todas as mulheres, tres vezes ao dia, para recitarem o Shema (Deut 6:4-9) e auxiliarem no serviço das rezas e orações, pois YAH lhes deu o dom de auxiliadoras, ajudadoras, consoladoras e conselheiras sábias, e também o maior de todos os dons, que é o dom de gerar uma vida, chamamos as mulheres para pôr o véu como sinal da autoridade dos esposos, que grande humildade! chamamos estas bravas mulheres para estarem usandos vestimentas especiais, sem vaidade, sem luxúria, porém sempre belas,humildes, com tzitzit, com ternura, doçura e generosidade, sim, as chamamos para serem uma tremenda benção como provedoras do Ministério do Rei Yahushua haMashiach, vosso Amo, Amo de Israel.
Hallelu Yah!

Eshet Chayl! uma mulher de valor!

We received a very interesting “hack” today from our good friend [Jonny Dryer] that really got us thinking, but first a little background.

For those that live only inside of a box on top of a mountain (we know who you are), there was an explosion of a British Petroleum oil rig about 40 miles southeast of Venice, LA. Being proclaimed by Carol Browner as “probably the biggest environmental disaster” – stated a month after the accident.

And the oil is still spewing. Now, we’re not ones for criticizing how this event is being handled; no, we left it to …read more


          Rwenzururu conflict aftermath: Residents desert health centre   

Health workers at Bwesumbu Health Centre II in Bwesumbu Sub-county, Busongora North in Kasese District, have abandoned duty following the November 26, 2016 clashes between government forces and the royal guards that left at least 100 dead. Bwesumbu Health Centre II, located at the sub-county headquarters, was a battlefield between the Rwenzururu royal guards and security personnel during the attack on the Rwenzururu palace that left many bodies lying at the facility.

          Fall-applied herbicides: Which weed species should be the target?   

Herbicides applied in the fall often can provide improved control of many winter annual weed species compared with similar applications made in the spring.  Marestail is one example of a weed species that is often better controlled with herbicides applied in the fall compared with the spring.  An increasing frequency of marestail populations in Illinois are resistant to glyphosate, and within the past year we have confirmed that resistance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides also is present in Illinois populations. 

Targeting emerged marestail with higher application rates of products such as 2,4-D in the fall almost always results in better control at planting compared with targeting overwintered and often larger plants with lower rates of 2,4-D in the spring.

One question typically posed is whether or not a fall application needs to include one or more herbicides that provide residual control of winter annual weed species. Typically, the earlier the fall application is made (say, early October) the more benefit a soil-residual herbicide.

However, delaying the herbicide application until later in the fall (say, mid-November) often diminishes the necessity of a soil-residual herbicide since most of the winter annual weeds have emerged and can be controlled with non-residual herbicides.  

Applying a soil-residual herbicide late in the fall in hopes of having a clean field prior to planting is akin to gambling on the weather.  Cold winter conditions (similar to last winter) can reduce herbicide degradation in the soil and increase herbicide persistence.  This might not always be favorable since, depending on the residual herbicide, increased persistence also can cause injury to the following crop.  A more moderate winter and early spring warming will increase herbicide degradation, which could result in the need for a burndown herbicide to control existing vegetation before planting.

We recommend fall-applied herbicides target fall-emerging winter annual species, biennials, and perennials.  We do not recommend fall application of residual herbicides for control of any spring-emerging annual weed species. 

We are aware that some products have 2(ee) recommendations that suggest the product will control certain summer annual weed species following application in the fall.  Particularly concerning to us is that “pigweed species” are listed on at least one product label.  The extension weed science program at the University of Illinois does not recommend fall-application of residual herbicides to control Amaranthus species the next spring for the following reasons:

1)      Inconsistent performance: as previously described, the performance consistency of soil-residual herbicides applied in the fall is greatly dependent on weather and soil conditions after application.  Our data suggest the greatest and most consistent control of Amaranthus species either at planting or several weeks after planting was achieved when residual herbicides were applied in the spring, not in the fall.

2)      Increased selection for herbicide-resistant biotypes: soil-applied herbicides are not immune from selection for herbicide-resistant biotypes (please see the April 16, 2013 article titled: “Herbicide Resistance: Are Soil-Applied Herbicides Immune?”).  Following a fall application, the concentration of herbicide remaining in the spring when Amaranthus species begin to germinate will be much lower compared with the same product rate applied closer to planting.

Populations of several of the most challenging summer annual broadleaf weed species in Illinois demonstrate resistance to herbicides from more than one site-of-action herbicide class.  Their effective management requires an integrated approach that often includes soil-residual herbicides.  Applying these herbicides when they will be most effective against these challenging summer annual species is a critical component of an integrated management program.

          China Completes Construction Of New Missile Shelters On Disputed South China Sea Islands   

Trump's "up and down" relationship with China may be on the precipice of taking a sharp dive into the proverbial abyss.  After frequently threatening to label China a "currency manipulator" on the campaign trail last year, Trump's relationship with China's President Xi Jinping took a decided turn for the better after a meeting at Mar-a-Lago in which China vowed to help address the "menace of North Korea" .

But apparently those efforts have officially failed:

 

And, shortly after those efforts were declared dead, the Trump administration signed a $1.3 billion arms deal with Taiwan, a deal which China has "demanded" be cancelled immediately.

Meanwhile, as the Financial Times points out today, in the midst of all the international crises, China has made great strides building out and further militarizing their disputed islands in the South China Sea.

Over the past three months, China has built four new missile shelters on Fiery Cross, boosting the number of installations on the reef to 12, according to satellite images provided to the Financial Times by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

 

China has also expanded radar facilities on Fiery Cross and two other disputed reefs — Subi and Mischief — in the Spratly Island chain, and started building underground structures that Greg Poling, director of CSIS’s Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, assesses will be used to store munitions.

 

“We haven’t seen any slowdown in construction, including since the Mar-a-Lago summit,” said Mr Poling. “The islands are built and they are clearly militarised, which means they already got over the hard part. Now every time they put in a new radar or new missile shelter, it is harder for the world to get angry. They are building a gun, they are just not putting the bullets in yet.”

 

The advances underscore how much progress China has made towards militarizing the man-made islands in ways that significantly enhance its ability to both monitor activity in the South China Sea and to project power in the western Pacific where the US has been the dominant power in the seven decades since the second world war.

Euan Graham, an Asia expert at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, said it was “not quite game over in the South China Sea” but that China had fundamentally altered the status quo over the islands that would be hard to change barring war or natural disasters.

 

“They already exert a strategic effect by projecting China’s presence much further out,” said Mr Graham. “They will not prevent the US Navy from operating in their vicinity, but they will complicate the threat environment for US ships and aircraft — by extending the [Chinese navy’s] surveillance and targeting net, as well as the envelope of power projection.”

 

Of course, these latest provocations come despite a promise made to Obama in 2015 that "China would not militarize the man-made islands"...a promise which the Obama administration apparently took at face value and proceeded to bury their heads in the sand.

During a visit to Washington, Mr Xi told Barack Obama in 2015 that China would not militarise the man-made islands, but in the intervening 20 months Beijing has stepped up construction, and now has runways that can accommodate Chinese fighter jets.

 

China’s legal claim to the seas around the maritime features is legally controversial since many were dredged out of coral and sand and thus not entitled to status as islands. But Vasily Kashin, an expert on the Chinese military at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, said the goal was never legal sovereignty but to give China forward bases from which it could patrol and exercise control in their vicinity.

 

“If you have this infrastructure in the Spratlys, it allows China to constantly monitor aircraft and ships in the South China Sea. The point is that no one will be able to do anything in the area without them seeing.”

 

Ely Ratner, an Asia expert who served in the Obama administration, said Washington had failed to craft a strategy to convince China to halt militarisation of the man-made islands. “Until China believes that there will be significant costs . . . I don’t think they have any reason to slow down,” said Mr Ratner. “They have been pushing on an open door and have been surprised at how little resistance they have faced.”

 

Critics say the Obama administration took too cautious an approach to avoid creating tensions that would hurt the ability for co-operation on other issues. Meanwhile, some experts say the Trump team has given China a relatively free pass to maximise the chances it will boost pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear programme.

Somehow we suspect the Trump administration will end up being slightly less "accommodating" over the long term...

          Are you a procrastinator?   
I definitely am! I am so envious of the many writer's blogs I visit where the authors are so diligent and so prolific - I am in awe of them :)

But I know I will never be like them (sadly), so I have my own techniques for dealing with procrastination. I was asked to write a blog post for Romance Writers of Australia's 50ks in 30 days event, which is taking place at the moment. I am an under performing participant, as I very very optimistically thought I could write 40K despite being on my honeymoon throughout June. Ha! But, I am writing, and will certainly write much more than I would have otherwise. (also, this way I am not heading for early divorce :) ).

I will be lazy and repost my blog below, or you can view the original here: RWA's 50ks in 30 days

The Procrastinator’s Guide to 50ks in 30 Days

I am a terrible procrastinator. The worst, quite possibly. But I have written a 50K book in 30 days – and that book will be my debut novel for Harlequin Mills & Boon in September. And if I – a writer who will find absolutely anything to do, other than actually write – can do that, than other procrastinators can too. I promise!

I’ve attempted 50k30days before, and failed dismally. It even took me four years to finish my first manuscript! So what changed this time? How was I magically cured of this dreadful procrastination curse?

Well, sadly – I’m still a procrastinator. Procrastination, I’m pretty sure, is here to stay. But now I have tools to deal with it. I cannot promise that what worked for me will work for you, and I can promise that nothing I’m about to say is particularly ground breaking. But it worked for me, so well that the word count I’m capable of achieving when I follow these steps still shocks me.

So here it its…

Leah Ashton’s Anti-Procrastination Toolkit

1. Erase the guilt
So you’re a procrastinator. Everyone around you is more productive and diligent than you (or so it seems!). Cue hours of self-flagellation. Or – acknowledge that you are what you are, and find techniques that allow
you to up your word count regardless. Feeling guilty won’t put words onto paper – so what’s the point?

2. Give yourself a real deadline
I would love to be one of those people who can’t bear a day without writing, but…well… I’m not. So, I need a deadline to get my butt in the seat. And it needs to be a real one, not just “I will write 10K by the end of
the month”, it needs to be a deadline with consequences if I fail. Prior to publication, my deadlines were planned around writing competitions. So if I didn’t hit my deadline, I couldn’t enter.
So, give yourself a deadline, with a real consequence. Find a writing competition with an entry date in early July. Sign up for a pitch at the conference. Anything – but make sure there is a consequence other than, “oh well.”

3. Have a plan (or even a plot)
I used to think I was a seat-of-my-pantser, resulting in the euphoric dashing off of an effortless chapter one, and chapter two and… then……nothing. I know this will be controversial with confirmed pantsers, but I strongly recommend at least a sketch of your plot. Just a vague plan of where you’re going and the main turning points along the journey. Why?
Well, nothing triggers a serious procrastination session for me than a blank page and absolutely no idea where I’m going. Reduce the risk of finding yourself with terrifying nothingness ahead of you and plan. Your plan is your safety net – and besides, you can always ignore it!

4. Remove yourself from temptation
What do you do when you procrastinate? Do you read? Watch TV? Surf the Internet? Whatever it is, get yourself away from it. Be dramatic if you have to – go write at a café, have someone physically remove your TV from your house, give your modem to your husband and tell him he is not under any circumstances to give it back. You get the idea?
Obviously this is for confirmed procrastinators like me – if will power is enough for you, then that is awesome, but if not, do whatever you have to do. The Internet is my vice, and I’ve been known to lock my Internet dongle in my car, or alternatively I use a really nifty program called Freedom (available for Mac and PC), which cost $10 and will block the Internet for up to 8 hours – and the only way to get it back is to re-boot your computer. If it’s just some sites that suck the time out of your day, look into browser add-ons like Google Chrome’s StayFocusd or Firefox’s LeechBlock. Both will either block a site totally, or give you a maximum time limit per day.

5. Write with your friends
The discovery of sprints (where you write for 30 minutes or an hour with a friend, and then report back with your word count) was a breakthrough for me. I am a slow writer, so I never had super impressive word counts, but knowing I had to report in with my word count was super motivating.
Make sure you check into the Sprint Sessions in the RWA Chatroom throughout 50Ks in 30 Days, or follow along on Twitter. And if you can’t write with your friends? Well…

6. Sit down, and start typing
It’s hardly surprising, but the reality is if you sit down every day, without any distractions, and simply write a word, followed by another word, and then another – your word count will go up. Sometimes the idea of writing X number of words can be so overwhelming that starting seems impossible. But when you do start, and regardless if the words flow or are squeezed out painfully – as long as you’ll keep writing, you’ll hit your
word count. And once you start doing it day after day – well, before you know it – you would have written a book. Or 50Ks in 30 days!

There you have it – my procrastinator’s guide to 50Ks in 30 days. Please let me know if you reach into my toolkit – I’d love to know if it helps you, too. And as I’m also looking for new weapons to slay the procrastination beast – what tips have I missed that help you?
          Where did the month go?   
I'm not sure how a month has passed since my last blog? One day it was April, and then - bam! - June! In my defence, I did manage to get married in May, so at least for the first part of the month I have a reasonable excuse :)

But rather than actually blogging (I have a 7.30am breakfast seminar to attend tomorrow/this morning and it's after midnight...another whoops), I thought I'd be lazy and link to a proper blog post I did on Monday at the LoveCats blog:

What is it about weddings?

There's even a pic from my wedding :)
          My Call Story   
I just have to mention again how amazing the past few days have been :) The congratulations I have received from members of the romance community - both blogland and through Romance Writers of Australia have just blown me away. Romance writers really are the best!

So, I guess I'd better tell you what happened after the end of New Voices way back in November?

Well - it turned out winning the competition was the easy bit.

My original deadline for my book was Christmas. So off I went, typing madly away, and sending chunks of my book off to my editor for feedback. All was going well... right?

By the end of November, and 19K into the book, my editor called - there were issues with my story. So I
threw out at least half of what I'd written, and tried again.

This time I got stopped at 27K words. This was about ten days before Christmas, and the email and subsequent phone call telling me all that wasn't working...well, they were just awful. Of course my editor was right (If I was honest, I knew it wasn't working), but I was very low and felt like a complete failure.

Surely by now Mills & Boon regretted choosing me as their winner?

With my editor's encouragement, I took a break over Christmas, and didn't start writing again until 2nd January. Amazingly, my editor still seemed to have faith in me!

This time I threw out everything - leaving less that 3000 words from the original book. If you read my competition entries, both the pivotal moment and 90% of chapter two is gone. My hero has totally changed. The book is SO much better for it.

I was determined to write my way this time, and while still taking on everything I learnt from my mentors during New Voices (and my editor subsequently), to trust my instincts.

The feedback on my first few chapters was very positive, as was the feedback on the first half of the book a few weeks later. We decided on a new deadline - 10th Feb.

I wrote like a mad thing, with my support team (including Nikki and Rach) getting me through. But I did
it - I subbed the book on time. A whole book in five weeks - this was amazing for slow typing, procrastinator me!

I got my revisions back quick smart (via phone call), which I managed to turn around in four days, and then had some final tiny sentence level tweaks to make. 

Then, on Friday, I got "the email". My book is to be published, and they want my next one too :)

So while I didn't get "the call", I'll claim my revision stage call as my call :) 

My editor called me yesterday with more details about release dates and so on - my book will come out as part of a New Voices anthology in the UK in October this year, and then as a Harlequin Romance in the US and M&B Sweet in Australia in 2012. My next book is due later this year!

It was hard - much harder than I anticipated when I won New Voices - but absolutely worth it.

And no... it hasn't sunk in yet :)

Writing at the beach in Croatia
Thank goodness that's done :) It was written over the past week, while I've been in Vela Luka, Croatia. However, it turned out to be a little frustrating to write. My first version, I liked. After writing the first 2000 words, I happily emailed it to my amazing crit partners, confident that I was on the right track. I kept on typing, and by the time I heard back from them the next day, I had a good 3500 words down. For me - Captain Slow Writer - this was super sonic speed!

Sadly, what I'd written was crap. This took me a few hours to digest, as I'd been told in the nicest possible way :) But basically I'd lost my voice, it just wasn't "me".

Where had I gone wrong? I think the problem was I was trying to write what I thought Mills & Boon wanted. I think I figured that with the changes from Sweet/Romance to Cherish and Riva, that I was more a Cherish writer, so I need something a bit gentler than my normal style. Clearly, this was a stupid mistake - I'm not capable of this style, and my chapter featured a neurotic, unlikeable heroine and a plot that was going nowhere.

So, I started again. I was able to salvage much of the first scene, but the rest - thrown out. Almost 3000 words! And only three days to go before the deadline!

But, I managed it. I know it isn't perfect, but it's me. It is in my voice. So if it crashes and burns in the competition, and least I've got that.

At the beach with my own hero :)
Due to lack of consistent Internet (I need to buy it in 24 hour blocks) I've been lurking a bit on the New Voices web site, but there are some very impressive entries there. Including the work of some of my favourite bloggers! Here are their excellent entries:

Sorry if I've missed anyone!

Also, I must mention how sad I was to lose all of my (possibly overused) italics when I pasted in my entry. Poor italics :)

          Real life romance (and New Voices)   
Sorry to have been so absent - I will write a long, detailed, many-pictured blog post soon that covers my fabulous time at the Romance Writers of Australia conference.

But I DO have a good excuse. On arriving home from Sydney I immediately launched into last minute panicking (and packing) prior to leaving on a one month holiday to the UK and Croatia. Getting everything sorted at work, and the house half-decent for our house sitter, took up a stupid amount of time.

And then... on the Saturday afternoon before we left (our flight was 1am Sunday), my boyfriend and I took our dogs down to the park for a walk. We read the paper, ate fish and chips, and the dogs ran around in circles. Then I look up - and my boyfriend is on his knee, with the most incredible ring (box upside down). I cried for about a minute, so he had to ask me again... but of course I said yes.

It was at the park where we first met 3.5 years ago. He'd intended to ask me in Croatia, but thought that I'd want to be able to share it with my family and friends before we left. Plus he wanted the dogs to be there.

So I'm feeling incredibly happy, and incredibly lucky.

The last week has been a bit of a blur, can't quite believe I've been in London more than a week! But my visit to London turned out to be very timely, as I was able to attend one of the New Voices workshops. It was this afternoon in East Sheen, which is absolutely nowhere near where I'm staying with my sisters. So I was super brave and battled the tube strikes to take a combination of buses and the overland train to actually get to the library - and even be on time!

The editors gave a great overview of how to write for Mills & Boon, and I even got to take home some books - yay! It was great motivation to sit down and get my new chapter together and enter New Voices, which I'll do over the next week or so.

I've been very absent from blogland the past 10 days, I can't wait to read everyone's entries - it looks like competition will be fierce!!

          Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh, Coolest Couple Ever, Are Not Too Cool For PDA   

Pharrell Williams makes nonstop jams, and his wife since 2013, the super-stylish Helen Lasichanh, seems just as cool. Together, they just might be the coolest couple (they're at least the most fashion-forward) in Hollywood right now. Though the parents of four kids (they just welcomed triplets in January, after their first son, Rocket) are intensely private about their relationship, they still step out together from time and time, and in between their fiercely fashionable appearances, they also show a little PDA, like a quick kiss and an almost-constant hand-hold. It just shows that no one's too cool for true love.


          Hold On to Your Jaw, Because This Is What OITNB's "Skinhead" Helen Really Looks Like   

Image Source: Netflix

By now, most Orange Is the New Black fans know just how different the cast looks outside of their Litchfield jumpsuits, but few of the makeunders are as jaw-dropping as the one Francesca Curran agreed to while playing "Skinhead" Helen. With her shaved head and striking face and neck tattoos, Helen has always been one of the most recognizable characters on the show, despite not being one of the leads. In the show's fifth season, however, the actress gets way more screentime than she has in past seasons, so it made us wonder: what does she look like outside of her OITNB costume?

Spoiler alert: SHE'S FREAKIN' GORGEOUS.

Luckily Francesca's Instagram account is a veritable treasure trove of shocking before-and-after shots chronicling her transformation into the white supremacist character. Although she fully committed and shaved off all of her hair, she's not afraid to rock some pretty glam wigs during her downtime from filming.

While speaking with Business Insider, Francesca revealed that despite her character's intimidating look, she's actually "girly" at heart. "In real life, I'm so feminine. I'm so girly. I love my makeup, I love my jewelry and all that," she said. "So to really be stripped of all that . . . The first time I was like, okay, wow. I found myself in the mirror and was like, this is a striking . . . what a difference."

That's not to say she isn't tough, though. During a recent chat with POPSUGAR, she told us that she was thrilled to be doing her own stunts this season. "We did combat training, and it was just the craziest experience because we have this amazing guy, Greg, and we have a whole team of guys that come in and show us how to do these crazy flips and wall kicks and some of the stuff we do, we'll get professional stunt people in," she explained. "But the fun part for me this season was while some of the other girls were having stunt people do it, they, for some reason, had a crazy sense of faith in me. And they were like, 'Hey, do you think you can handle this?' And being the crazy person that I am, I was like, 'Absolutely.'"

At least she didn't have to worry about her hair getting snagged on anything during training, right? Francesca has also shared a few peeks at what her normal, natural hair looks like when the show goes on hiatus and she has the chance to grow some of it back.

Her transformation even gives America's Next Top Model a run for its money (and that's a show that once attempted a "beard weave," so that's really saying something).

Lãnh tụ sinh viên Hồng Kông Hoàng Chi Phong bị cảnh sát bắt ngày 28/06/2017.

Hôm 28/06/2017, lãnh tụ sinh viên Hồng Kông Hoàng Chi Phong (Joshua Wong) cùng với 25 nhà đấu tranh đã bị câu lưu trong một cuộc biểu tình phản đối Tập Cận Bình đến thăm đặc khu, nhân kỷ niệm 20 năm cựu thuộc địa Anh được trao trả cho Trung Quốc. Những người biểu tình cũng đòi hỏi trả tự do cho giải Nobel hòa bình Lưu Hiểu Ba và tất cả các tù nhân chính trị. Họ được thả ra vào rạng sáng thứ Sáu 30/6, và cho biết sẽ kiện lên Tòa án Tối cao về vụ bắt bớ này.
Kể từ đầu tháng Năm đến nay, trên những bậc thềm tòa sơ thẩm Khu Đông Hồng Kông (Eastern Magistrates’Court), ngự trị một không khí « phiên tòa chính trị » đã trở thành quen thuộc, vốn diễn ra ngày càng nhiều trong những năm cuối của nhiệm kỳ ông Lương Chấn Anh (C.Y.Leung). Ra trước tòa là những khuôn mặt thường rất trẻ ở tuổi sinh viên, với bạn bè và những người ủng hộ vây quanh, đôi khi thêm vài băng-rôn và vô số camera truyền hình, máy ảnh.

Hôm đặc phái viên Le Monde đến dự, có 9 người bị triệu tập với sáu tội danh khác nhau (tụ tập trái phép, gây rối trật tự công cộng, chống lại nhân viên công lực…). Tất cả có điểm chung là đã tham gia cuộc biểu tình ngày 06/11/2016 trước Văn phòng liên lạc Trung Quốc. 

Nằm ở khu Tây Hoàn (Sai Wan), phía tây khu tài chính Trung Hoàn nổi tiếng, cơ quan này đặt tại một tòa tháp bằng kính và thép hiện đại, phía trên nóc là một quả cầu. Tuy mang cái tên khá khiêm tốn, nhưng Văn phòng liên lạc là một tổ chức hành chính khổng lồ, với mấy chục ban bệ khác nhau, đóng vai trò quan trọng trong việc chọn lựa các ứng cử viên đề cử vào Quốc hội Hồng Kông.

Trước khi bước vào phòng xử, cô Chu Đình (Agnès Chow), bí thư đảng đối lập Hương Cảng Chúng Chí (Demosisto) cho biết : « Chúng tôi lo ngại chính quyền lợi dụng phiên tòa này để bỏ tù những người phản kháng trước khi chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình đến vào ngày 1/7 ». Nhưng thẩm phán hôm đó chấp nhận ngay yêu cầu hoãn xử của luật sư, thậm chí còn cho thời hạn lâu hơn vì lịch xử không thuận tiện.

Phiên tòa như vậy được dời đến ngày 21/7, nhờ đó các bị cáo có thể đi biểu tình chống Tập Cận Bình. Dưới mắt Lâm Thuần Hiên (Derek Lam), thành viên Demosisto và là sinh viên trường đại học Trung Quốc ở Hồng Kông, các vụ bắt bớ này nhằm sách nhiễu. Anh nói : « Chúng tôi liên tục bị bắt, với tôi đây đã là lần thứ tư. Thật là rắc rối, nhất là bây giờ đang vào mùa thi ». 

Hồi cuối tháng Ba, sau hôm bà Lâm Trịnh Nguyệt Nga (Carrie Lam) được bầu làm trưởng đặc khu, một nhóm 9 công dân Hồng Kông khác, trong đó có ba lãnh tụ phong trào Chiếm lĩnh Trung Hoàn, cũng đã bị triệu ra tòa.

Tháng Tư, dân biểu, chủ tịch đảng Nhiệt Huyết Công Dân (Civic Passion) là Trịnh Tùng Thái (Cheng Chung Tai), 33 tuổi, bị bắt rồi được tại ngoại sau khi đóng tiền bảo lãnh, vì « xúc phạm quốc kỳ ». Anh đã cắm ngược những lá cờ đuôi nheo Trung Quốc và Hồng Kông bằng vải ni-lông trên bục các đồng nghiệp thân Bắc Kinh vào tháng 10/2016. Ngày 3/7, khoảng hai chục nhà đấu tranh trong đó có Hoàng Chi Phong bị triệu tập vì « chống lại nhân viên công lực ».

Nhưng trường hợp điển hình nhất là hai dân biểu trẻ của đảng Thanh Niên Tân Chính (Youngspiration), Lương Tụng Hằng (Baggio Leung) và Du Huệ Trinh (Yau Waiching), đắc cử tháng 9/2016 nhưng chưa bao giờ được ngồi vào chỗ của mình vì bị loại ra khỏi Quốc hội. 

Trong khi tư pháp đặc khu chưa đưa ra kết luận về lời tuyên thệ của họ, thì tháng 11/2016 Bắc Kinh đã can thiệp, cho rằng vô giá trị. Đơn kháng cáo của hai dân biểu trẻ sẽ được tòa phúc thẩm xem xét cuối tháng Tám năm nay, họ được một trong những luật sư nổi tiếng nhất Luân Đôn là David Pannick biện hộ.

Hai dân biểu này giải thích : « Ở tòa án cấp cao nhất, chúng tôi vẫn còn tin vào một bản án công bằng ». Số phận của sáu dân biểu đối lập khác cũng đang nằm trong tay tư pháp. Họ bị cáo buộc tụ tập bất hợp pháp, vì một cuộc họp tổ chức ngay trong tòa nhà Quốc hội.

Gần đây, nhiều phiên xử cho thấy quyết định của tòa không phải lúc nào cũng thuận lợi cho chính quyền. Hồi tháng Hai, cựu trưởng đặc khu Tăng Âm Quyền (Donald Tsang) bị 20 tháng tù vì sai phạm trong quản lý. Ông Tăng kháng cáo và được cho đóng tiền tại ngoại.

Còn tỉ phú Quách Bình Giang (Thomas Kwok) có liên quan đến một vụ án tham nhũng dính líu đến nhân vật số hai của ông Tăng Âm Quyền là Hứa Sĩ Nhân (Raphael Hui), thì vừa thua kiện ở tòa phúc thẩm. Năm 2014, ông Hứa Sĩ Nhân đã bị kết án bảy năm rưỡi tù giam.

Về phần bảy cảnh sát đã đánh đập một người biểu tình trong đợt « Cách mạng Dù vàng » năm 2014, mỗi người bị lãnh án hai năm tù. Bản án nghiêm khắc này đã gây ra phong trào tương trợ với cảnh sát.

Dù vậy, mặc cho tính khách quan của các thẩm phán và sự vững chải của các định chế Hồng Kông, một luật sư giấu tên cho biết tại đặc khu « các thành viên luật sư đoàn hết sức bảo thủ. Đa số có cùng ý nghĩ là không nên làm cho con tàu tròng trành, cần phải tương đối thôi ».

Luật sư này cho rằng khá mỉa mai khi tòa phúc thẩm lại nằm gần hai ngân hàng chính của Hồng Kông là HSBC và Bank of China, tại tòa nhà của tỉ phú Lý Gia Thành (Li Kashing) và câu lạc bộ sang trọng Hương Cảng Hội (Hong Kong Club).

          OIAC xác nhận vụ tấn công bằng khí sarin tại Syria   
Một ảnh video tố cáo Syria dùng vũ khí hóa học nhắm vào thường dân tháng 8/2016.

Hãng tin Reuters ngày 30/06/2017 cho biết Tổ chức Cấm Vũ khí Hóa học (OIAC, tiếng Anh là OPCW) xác nhận khí độc sarin đã được sử dụng trong vụ tấn công vào ngôi làng Khan Cheikhoune ở miền bắc Syria hồi tháng 04/2017.
Báo cáo của các chuyên gia OIAC nhấn mạnh, sau khi thẩm vấn các nhân chứng và xét nghiệm các bệnh phẩm, « một lượng lớn các nạn nhân trong đó có một số đã tử vong, đã bị ảnh hưởng bởi khí sarin hoặc một chất tương tự như loại khí độc này ».

Bộ Ngoại giao Nga tố cáo bản báo cáo dựa trên những « yếu tố đáng ngờ ». Ngoại trưởng Anh Boris Johnson tuyên bố « hoàn toàn không nghi ngờ » rằng chính chế độ Bachar Al Assad là thủ phạm, cho biết sẽ ban hành  trừng phạt. Tại Liên Hiệp Quốc, đại sứ Mỹ Nikki Haley đòi thành lập một ủy ban điều tra về vụ tấn công bằng vũ khí hóa học này.

Khoảng mấy chục người đã thiệt mạng trong vụ không kích làng Khan Cheikhoune thuộc tỉnh Idlib hôm 04/04, trong đó có nhiều trẻ em. Vụ tấn công được cho là của quân chính phủ Damas đã gây phẫn nộ trên thế giới, khiến Mỹ sau đó đã cho bắn 59 hỏa tiễn Tomahawk vào căn cứ không quân nơi xuất phát chiếc máy bay thả khí độc.

          Reading the Office of Legal Counsel on Emoluments: Do Super-Rich Presidents Get a Pass?    

 

I wrote last November that the Foreign Emoluments Clause “is on its face a national security provision designed to the protect the country from officers too enmeshed with foreign interests.” If the Justice Department’s recent court filing is to be believed, that protection is exceedingly limited. This new position marks a decisive break from the more conscientious approach long espoused by both the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC).

At the heart of the emoluments controversy is President Trump’s refusal to liquidate his business holdings. He has instead maintained ownership of the Trump Organization, a multibillion-dollar umbrella company with thousands of domestic and international investments, and placed the assets in a revocable trust managed by his sons Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump. Trump now faces three lawsuits alleging that he is profiting from his business empire in violation of the Constitution. Three days after his inauguration, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government accountability watchdog group, filed the first suit in the Southern District of New York. This month, two more complaints were filed by the attorneys general of Washington D.C. and Maryland and 196 congressional Democrats, in federal district courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia, respectively.

All three suits center on the meaning and scope of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, which provides that “no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign state” (U.S. Const. art. I, § 9, cl. 8). Citing Trump's business dealings with state governments and federal agencies, such as its lease on the Old Post Office Building that now houses the Trump International Hotel, two of the suits also allege violations of the Domestic Emoluments Clause. This provision applies specifically to the president and provides that he shall receive “for his Services” a fixed compensation during his tenure and not “any other Emolument from the United States, or any of [the states]” (U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 7).

Serious procedural challenges like standing notwithstanding, given the House and Senate’s failure to address head-on the risks posed by Trump’s financial conflicts pose, the lawsuits could prove important in forcing a much-needed conversation: Is Trump taking in profits in violation of the Constitution? And just as critically, are future presidents entitled to pull a Trump—or does the Constitution dictate that they, like Jimmy Carter, must sell their family peanut farms as a condition of taking office?

No Article III court has ever rendered an opinion on how either Emoluments Clause should be interpreted, though the Supreme Court has offered interpretations of the term “emoluments” as it appears in Foreign Emoluments Clause-related statutes periodically enacted by Congress since 1881. Because of the limited judicial precedent, the internal memoranda from the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel that have been made public over the years are among the most important sources of guidance we have on emoluments issues. And though these memoranda do not directly address the question posed by the Trump business empire, making some amount of inference and legwork necessary, in critical respects they quite clearly contradict the sweeping defense that the Justice Department put forward this month in its 70-page motion to dismiss the CREW case against Trump.

The key issue in these suits—once you get behind a set of justiciability questions that may prove dispositive—is what constitutes an emolument (though with respect to the Foreign Emoluments Clause there’s also some disagreement about what kind of entity constitutes a “foreign state”). In plain English, we are looking at an exotic presidential twist on the biggest and oldest challenge to enforcing any anticorruption law: What counts? Do the forbidden “emoluments” cover only goodie boxes, blatant quid pro quo arrangements, and employment-related compensation? Or are the profits that Trump enjoys by way of his business transactions also prohibited when they come from foreign states and domestic government entities? And if the latter, more expansive definition is the appropriate one, are the profits prohibited only when the take is in excess of  “fair-market-value”—and if so, does that definition serve as a meaningful limitation when at issue are luxury goods whose value or sales may be inflated by the fact that Trump is president and the products are prominently branded with his name?

Predictably, the dispute has taken the form of a battle for the original meaning of “emoluments.” An array of historical materials support both a limited and broad definition. The two possible interpretations are well summed up by the Oxford English Dictionary, which provides two definitions dating back to the Founding: “1. Profit or gain arising from station, office, or employment . . . . 2. Advantage, benefit, comfort.”

The Justice Department, like Trump’s lawyers at Morgan Lewis, latches onto the first definition  to argue that “the Emoluments Clauses apply only to the receipt of compensation for personal services and to the receipt of honors and gifts based on official position.” That is, President Trump is precluded only from receiving benefits in exchange for services provided to a foreign state in his official capacity as president, or—and this is crucial, given the subject matter of the OLC opinions—services provided “in a capacity akin to an employee of a foreign state.”

The plaintiffs in the three suits, on the other hand, argue for the much more expansive definition. Marshaling its own set of historical evidence, CREW asserts that emoluments are "anything of value, including money, permits, approvals, tax benefits, any other benefits, and anything else monetary or nonmonetary, regardless of whether it is given in exchange for goods or services, and regardless of whether it is part of a transaction at, above, or below market rates."

A close examination of the relevant Comptroller and OLC opinions reveals that the current Justice Department is reading the Emoluments Clauses too narrowly, while CREW and the other plaintiffs are reading them too broadly. None of the opinions approves the receipt of benefits that can even arguably be attributed to the prestige or influence conferred by an office, and together they do not support the Justice Department’s claim that presidents may, as a categorical matter, collect profits from business transactions with foreign entities and domestic government entities as long as fair value is extracted on both sides. But notwithstanding the plaintiffs’ hard pull in the other direction, the opinions also suggest that presidents may in limited cases accept certain fixed benefits—as I will explain, these might be pensions from the U.S. state that used to employ them or money damages from a foreign country against which, in a past life, they successfully won a judgment. The key is that those benefits cannot be subject to foreign or domestic government manipulation or adjustment in connection with the presidential office.

This happens to be a sensible position that accords with what the opinions repeatedly underscore as the purpose of the Emoluments Clauses and the ultimate touchstone for interpreting their meaning: “to prevent corruption and foreign influence” and to bar “payments which have a potential of influencing or corrupting the integrity of the recipient.”

 

Why Language About Emoluments Is Easily Misused

A threshold issue before turning to the OLC literature is the confusion created by cherry-picking historical materials without consideration of their factual context. For example, in its motion to dismiss, the Justice Department followed the lead of some scholars in pulling some Supreme Court language that suggests the term “emoluments” applies only to salary and other duty-related benefits. Most notably, in Hoyt v. United States, 51 U.S. 109 (1850), the Court defines emoluments as “every species of compensation or pecuniary profit derived for a discharge of the duties of office” (emphasis added).

But in Hoyt, the Supreme Court was specifically asked to decide what constitutes an “emolument of office” per a statute governing Treasury Department collectors in their official capacity; the case did not require the Court to consider or rule on the existence of emoluments of other kinds. This is a key point for purposes of properly construing any Comptroller or OLC opinion that cites Hoyt and regurgitates its definition of “emoluments.” These opinions, like Hoyt, have to be read with an eye to their facts: they do not assert that “emoluments” must derive directly from discharge of duty; rather, the kind of emoluments at issue in those opinions was the kind derived for discharge of duty. As a consequence, the reliance on Hoyt in these opinions does not serve as evidence of a limiting principle for emoluments in general.

In short, as pointed out by the plaintiffs and by assorted scholars, the proper question for purposes of discerning the historical scope of “emoluments” is not whether the term could be interpreted in a restricted way, to refer only to benefits derived from discharging the duties of an office, but whether it was necessarily so interpreted at the time the Emoluments Clauses were drafted. As John Mikhail has painstakingly documented, the answer is no—and we don’t have to look at secondary sources, however authoritative (e.g., Black’s Dictionary) to draw that conclusion. Consider, for example, some of the constitutions ratified during the first of two major waves of state constitution-making in the Founding decade. Several included “common benefits clauses” that used the word “emoluments” in a way that simply defies narrow interpretation. The Pennsylvania Constitution (1776) provides: “That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection and security of the people, nation or community; and not for the particular emolument of advantage of any single man, family or sett [sic] of men, who are a part only of that community[.]” Very similar language appears in the Virginia (1776), Vermont (1777), and New Hampshire (1784) constitutions. Far more elaborate historical arguments demonstrating the broad uses of the term have been presented elsewhere: see here, here and here. The bottom line is that there is an abundance of primary Founding-era material making use of the broad definition of emoluments, so it is wrong to use language from fact-bound case law to assert that the term is an inherently limited one.

 

The Plaintiffs Define “Emoluments” Too Broadly

Does that mean, as plaintiffs assert, that all types of benefits conferred on the president by foreign countries and U.S. states are prohibited emoluments? According to the Comptroller and OLC opinions, clearly not.

A number of opinions explain that officers do not need to forego fixed benefits to which they are entitled for reasons manifestly unrelated to and uninfluenced by their office. This is a common-sense interpretation of the Clauses that avoids rigidity for rigidity’s sake, where denial of benefits would do nothing to serve the Clauses’ anti-corruption, anti-influence purpose.

For instance, the Comptroller and the OLC each independently concluded that President Ronald Reagan could collect ordinary retirement benefits from California, where he had served as the state governor, without violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause’s prohibition against the receipt of “emoluments” from a State. In its 1983 opinion, the Comptroller determined that President Reagan’s pension from California “cannot be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.” Coming to the same conclusion in its earlier 1981 opinion, the OLC also noted that “those [retirement] benefits are not emoluments in the constitutional sense” and their receipt does not “violate the spirit of the Constitution.” To support its reasoning, the OLC in turn relied on a 1964 opinion (not published) where it similarly decided the estate of President Kennedy was entitled to the naval retirement pay that had accrued during his presidency. Interpreting the Foreign Emoluments Clause “in the light of its basic purposes and principles,” it concluded he could receive payments to which he was entitled as a matter of law “prior to his taking office.”

The same principles support allowing officers to collect on certain kinds of money judgments, even from foreign powers. In a 1955 opinion, the Comptroller decided that an attorney in the Justice Department could receive a lump sum payment and lifetime annuity from the German government for his wrongful removal from the judgeship he held before he emigrated to the United States, as provided by German indemnification legislation. The Comptroller reasoned that those payments did not constitute emoluments from his former office, but rather “represent damages payable as a direct result of a moral and legal wrong.” Turning to its “spirit of the Constitution” analysis, the Comptroller had no trouble determining the payments were not problematic: they were “obviously . . . not intended to influence him as an officer of the United States,” were made under laws not specific to him, and were not payments voluntarily made by the German government but rather mandatory indemnification required by the Allied powers. In a 1954 opinion on the same matter, the OLC came to a slightly different place—the payments were not permitted to the extent they amounted to German retiree benefits—but like the Comptroller, it found that damages intended to redress injury were not prohibited emoluments.

Note what these opinions have in common: they generally allow the officer in question to collect payments or benefits that, patently, have nothing to do with and cannot possibly have been affected by his U.S. office. That 1983 Comptroller opinion put it best, and contains a line worth repeating: President Reagan was entitled to his pension because it “c[ouldn’t] be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.”

Applying this general rule, it makes sense that presidents are permitted to invest in U.S. Treasury bonds; and the rule also explains why wealth management solutions like blind trusts have long been accepted as workable resolutions to problems of conflict of interest. But it certainly doesn’t provide clearance for all profits derived from discretionary, “fair-market-value” transactions where the president is obviously and individually on one end of the sale.

 

The Justice Department Defines “Emoluments” Too Narrowly

A key move in the Justice Department’s brief is to rely heavily on a point of dubious significance: it asserts that “in every published OLC or Comptroller General opinion in which proposed conduct was determined to involve prohibited emoluments, the determination involved an employment relationship (or a relationship akin to an employment relationship) with the foreign government.”

If you think about it, there’s at least one common-sense explanation for the limited precedent: In general, the government employees on whose behalf these opinions were sought probably didn’t own hotel chains, lucrative licensing agreements, or hundreds of trademarks from which they derived significant foreign-based or domestic government-based income. Their thing of value, as civil servants, was their skill set, and thus the relevant question was whether they were constitutionally permitted to lend out that skill set to foreign governments or organizations with foreign state ties for payment.

A 1986 OLC opinion written by then-Deputy Assistant Attorney General Samuel Alito cuts against the assertion that whether the profit in question is derived from employment or personal services should be, by itself, dispositive. There, Alito determined that a NASA employee could indeed accept a fee for reviewing a PhD candidate's thesis for an Australian university. To get to this conclusion, Alito made two significant moves. First, uncertain as to whether a public university should be regarded a "foreign state," Alito instead decided to turn to the features of the proposed consultancy and consider whether they "raise[d] the kind of concern . . . that motivated" the prohibition’s enactment. This marks a functional, purpose-driven approach to the question of permissible benefits. Second, he suggested the following facts weigh against finding the fee a prohibited emolument: (1) the NASA scientist was not selected because of his position with the U.S. government, (2) the fee was an ordinary amount given the service to be rendered, (3) there was no reason for the officer to have "direct contact" with the university officials, and (4) the consultancy was "limited both in time and in substantive scope," and no "continuing relationship" was anticipated.

Note that the fact the scientist would be acting in an employment or personal services capacity did not automatically render the payment an emolument. This is the key takeaway from this opinion, and it is at odds with the Justice Department’s claim that employment is the make-or-break issue when it comes to determining whether a benefit or payment is an emolument. Second, consider the implications of the first and fourth points Alito highlighted. The scientist’s selection for the job and associated payment had nothing to do with his U.S. office, which is not a conclusion that can be readily drawn about the services purchased by foreign and state government employees newly flocking to Trump International Hotel. It may suggest the permissibility of accepting profits from truly routine transactions by truly routine hotel customers, including some government diplomats—but this possibility is undercut by Alito’s reference to the extremely limited nature of the permitted relationship and transaction in question.

The Justice Department is understandably leaning hard on the idea that an emolument must be received specifically as a function of office or employment. After all, without this very specific qualification, its argument for the permissibility of accepting profits from ordinary transactions falls apart. Two OLC opinions make this clear.

A 1982 OLC opinion determined that the Foreign Emoluments Clause barred an employee of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from working on his leave time for an American firm contracted by a Mexican government agency to review the design of a government-owned nuclear power plant. And a 1993 OLC opinion concluded that law firm partners serving as non-government advisors on the Administrative Conference of the United States could not accept partnership earnings “where some portion of that share is derived from the partnership’s representation of a foreign government” without triggering the constitutional prohibition. In the 1993 opinion, the OLC actually dismissed the argument that the conference member was not subject to the foreign government's “control” as “not decisive.” Instead, the OLC concluded that the portion of partnership profits the conference member would receive "would be a function of the amount paid to the firm by the foreign government," such that "the partnership would in effect be a conduit for that government." Acceptance of that portion of income was therefore a prohibited emolument (OLC reconsidered this opinion in 2010, but only with respect to whether the members held an “Office of . . . Trust” for purposes of the Foreign Emoluments Clause).

In these opinions, the OLC simply did not care that there was nothing out of the ordinary about the payments in these cases from a transactional or fair-market perspective. This runs contrary to the crux of the Justice Department’s argument for the innocuousness of Trump’s business-related foreign and domestic government income.

The textual kicker in all this is that even accepting the Justice Department’s insistence that “emolument” is best read to mean “profit arising from an office or employ” (Barclay’s A Complete and Universal English Dictionary on a New Plan (1774)), it doesn’t follow that all ordinary business transactions are okay: What if those transactions are, in number or value, enhanced by the prestige of the president’s office? Couldn’t the profit thereby derived then constitute “profit arising from an office or employ”? [Update, 5:17 pm: This is a line of argument that Marty Lederman compellingly and more thoroughly details here.]

It is to prevent this reading that the Justice Department argues that prohibited benefits must arise not just from the office but from the provision of services pursuant to that office. But this argument relies on a stunted conception of the power that an "Office of Profit or Trust" confers. To lift an example wholesale from Ben Wittes: If Trump owned a nondescript hotdog truck outside the White House that charged the same price for hotdogs as any other foodtruck and sold them to some incidental foreign customers, that would not be problematic under this definition of emoluments. If the truck were Trump-branded and either charged inflated prices or enjoyed inflated sales because Trump is president, and Saudi potentates lined up to put cash in his register, that would seem to constitute impermissible “profit arising from an office,” as a textual matter and in view of the historic Comptroller and OLC perspective.

At base, this is what plaintiffs are claiming—that the profits Trump is enjoying “aris[es] from” his office—so “aris[e] from” may be a definitional phrase the Justice Department is interpreting too narrowly. Trump’s status as the most powerful man in the world affects his business transactions, which are self-branded to boot. Not only is he enjoying booming business at his exclusive properties, in part thanks to foreign guests reportedly seeking to get in the president’s good graces, but he has also won Chinese trademark protection that, according to plaintiffs, he would not have received had he not become president.

Finally, on a practical note, notice the perverse upshot of the Justice Department’s fixation on employment and personal services as the place where the river divides. This assertion that payment for goods and business-related services is permissible but payment for employment and “personal services” is not means that a president can’t profit off his brain or body when it comes to cash from foreign sources or U.S. government entities, but can, without limitation, profit off the brains and bodies of those he can afford to employ in his private capacity. It’s what you might call a constitutional free pass for super-rich presidents.

The Comptroller and OLC opinions do not support such a result. They repudiate it.

***

Ultimately, the Justice Department’s view of emoluments marks a departure from the public Comptroller and OLC opinions in at least two critical respects. First, the new position is a clear abrogation of the practical “spirit of the Constitution” analysis on which the Comptroller and OLC have consistently relied to ensure a stringent rather than forgiving interpretation of what constitutes an impermissible benefit or undue influence (see, e.g., 1955 Comptroller Opinion, 1981 OLC Opinion, 1983 Comptroller Opinion; see also OLC 1962, noting “the sweeping nature of the constitutional prohibition”; OLC 1980, citing 1902 Attorney General Opinion stating the Foreign Emoluments Clause is “directed against every kind of influence by foreign governments upon officers of the United States” and the “prohibition should be given the broadest possible scope and application”). Second, the Justice Department’s quite specific argument that the president can profit from employing people to do business with foreign countries and government entities in the United States amounts to a strange carve-out, one that allows extremely wealthy officers with people in their employ to cash out as they wish on the advantages that the prestige of their office confers, without any consideration whatsoever of the sources of that cash. This interpretation is flatly at odds with executive branch tradition: I have yet to see a single opinion that has permitted an officer to collect profits even arguably enhanced by the power of his office, much less categorically benefit from discretionary, price-indeterminant transactions that foreign governments and U.S. government entities may enter into at will.

Note the issues I did not address here. What is not (yet) a point of debate in these particular lawsuits is whether these constitutional provisions apply to the president at all. The Domestic Emoluments Clause applies to the president by its express terms, and in its recent motion, the Justice Department doesn’t dispute CREW's claim, or the OLC’s preexisting determination, that the more obliquely phrased Foreign Emoluments Clause applies to the president as well (and notwithstanding the occasional argument to the contrary).

In addition, as the suits proceed in federal court, we can expect much of the legal discussion to focus on jurisdictional hurdles. There’s a strong argument that the courts don’t have a role to play, and that presidential corruption rising to the level of an emoluments violation is a political question whose resolution properly lies with Congress. Though the congressional suit spearheaded by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative John Conyers, Jr. alleges that Trump has failed to come to Congress for requisite permission in accepting foreign emoluments, Congress’s best recourse be impeachment proceedings. (Or if it so chose, Congress could avail itself of a lot of options short of impeachment, but in the words of Charles Black, Jr., circa 1974, “what an enormous if.” Recall that the House of Representatives has the power to demand Trump’s tax returns but has not exercised it.)

But as for the substantive question of whether the Comptroller and OLC of yore would have signed off on the Justice Department’s blessing of all monies flowing in by way of business transactions, the answer is “no.”

Don't take it personally. The side view of this bike , with rider in place, looks coffin like and strangely out of sorts with the rest of the build. Mind you this is a big bike so I don't mind big wheels but it does give it the appearance of the rear wheel lagging behind a bit. Also the metallic side panels are just too straight, like a box inside a box. This makes it not aesthetically pleasing for me. But Kugger is a skilled craftmen so kudo for a great fit and finish.

Yes, I somewhat agree, Catholicism has had its place in the visible church, but the Roman Papacy has quite simply hated much biblical reform! I could be wrong, but I sense "Roman" Catholicism has seen its day to some real degree? And it is more however, the sexual revolution, now with gay unions & marriage just about everywhere, is a real sign of apostasy, in both culture and in the visible church. We all know that within the papacy that great elephant in the room of the Roman gay lobby is alive and well! But, it quite exits in the whole of the western culture especially now, and has basically become accepted. Yes, we are seeing an almost complete cultural and ethical change today! One in which - in my opinion - we will simply not survive, at least as our past Western & Judeo-Christian Culture!

I really hate to have to be negative with today's pope and papacy, but it is quite obvious that RCC has gone radically off track in so many areas! And this is sort of doubly sad, for at least in their long history they have had many great Christians, both popes and so-called laity. But Liberalism and even situation ethics have gone off the scale especially since the 21st century in this Church! Again my opinion at least, and I am NOT alone here. The movement since postmodernity has NOT been good, in the effect of the so-called modern Church, simple. And Vatican II started off rather well in desire, but did NOT end up well, at least fully and in the culture and the visible church!

Salah Hamouri: The Elysee does not keep its promises!



On June 29, Jean-David Levitte, diplomatic adviser of Nicolas Sarkozy, Denise received Hamouri rue de l'Elysee. I accompanied it. After the interview about where developments were required, a statement (attached) was published and posted on the site of Salah Hamouri. Jean-David Levitte had to call me immediately and asked me to remove it from the site, given (sic) of the reaction of the Israeli Ambassador to France and, if confirmed to him, was in Salah's interest than to withdraw. Immediately asked and done. But, as you will see, this commitment has no place to be: it was about the "new" on the case of Salah and the attitude of France towards our compatriot. He made commitments. None given. That is why we are releasing this statement. Happy reading! And still more than ever, Salah. Soon Operation Attack Facebook "... Regards.
Jean-Claude Lefort .


News:

Denise Hamouri, Salah's mother, accompanied by Jean-Claude Lefort, met last Monday, June 28, rue de l'Elysee Jean-David Levitte, Diplomatic Adviser to the President of the Republic, in the presence of Nicolas Galey, Technical Advisor on the Near and Middle East.

Diplomatic Adviser said at the outset that President Nicolas Sarkozy would equal attention and equal determination to secure the release of Gilad Shalit and Salah Hamouri. For the President, the two youths are French and he defended well.

regards Salah Hamouri it was noted by the Adviser that the indictment of Israeli military court does not mention any facts or reprehensible act but a mere " intention ", a concept which is a purely arbitrary.

Therefore, as the Adviser, among 2,000 French prisoners abroad, the President focused his attention on the most obvious cases of unfairness and therefore it would be mobilized in this for the release of Salah Hamouri he has already, as the Adviser, called on several occasions with the current Israeli authorities.

It was noted that the Advisor denoted his words quite clearly what had been said on Salah Hamouri and if the two reported cases were treated on an equal footing, so it was difficult to understand, for example, the President has still not received the family of Salah Hamouri with the notable difference of the Shalit family.

It was also noted that Salah Hamouri was not considered a "rule of law but by a State at war, which condemns its military tribunals by the very people it occupies even though they were innocent of charges charges against them or who were conducting the Arbitrary pure and simple. It was reiterated that do not take into account this fact and immediately constituted a major serious misconduct.

Similarly it was reported that the same state never releases when there is an exchange of prisoners, Palestinians from Jerusalem.

He recalled the request for remission of sentence filed by Salah at 2 / 3 thirds of his sentence served, resulted in a clear rejection of the ad hoc and a worsening of the charges against him.

The idea that Israel Salah, who is innocent, should also make "excuses" unacceptable humiliation being added to the injustice that the heavy hitting for over 5 years. Similarly

it was highly reiterated that the expulsion of Salah or his extradition to France was clearly denied. Salah has a right as any human being to live wherever he wants.

Councillor stressed that nothing is likely to stop the release request of Salah while he has already spent more than 5 years in prison for "intent" assumption. He also indicated that new initiatives will be taken to the Israeli authorities. The interview lasted three quarters of an hour. Comments



The change in tone and approach set out verbally during the interview are undoubtedly possible, put in the multiple initiatives in a spirit of broad rally to demand the release of Salah. Despite claims to the Adviser, it is difficult to see the same desire to free Gilad Shalit and Salah Hamouri.

The President of the Republic has written to parents of Gilad at the 4th "anniversary" of his capture.

So when he wrote to Mr and Mrs Hamouriune letter ending, and one sent to parents of Giladle June 25, with these words: "I measure fatigue, anger or misunderstanding that day after day since June 25, 2006, you feel. The dignity with which you have demonstrated your courage and your work at all times has been exemplary. You can be proud of you and your son, as we are with Gilad and his parents. "For now

not one letter has been sent to the family Hamouri who have not been received at the Elysee Palace and never the name of Salah has been cited publicly by the President. And if the requests for release were made repeatedly it is difficult to say whether they were effective.

It can be pulled a clear conclusion of this meeting: the echo of the growing demand for the release of Salah can not be ignored in high places. This means if our mobilization unifying, day after day, was helpful. It must be pursued. Salah is a victim and not guilty.

There are no facts alleged against him - a supposed intention is not a fact - and therefore certainly not have intended to detonate the car of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and throwing a Molotov cocktail against an army vehicle Israel as was stated in a telegram lying to Associated Press published yesterday, at 21 h 17, "Yahoo".

Salah has already spent more than 5 years in prison for nothing. His release is not dependent on him but his jailers. Gilad Shalit, the President called on multiple occasions his unconditional release. Why should it be different for Salah?

Salah another 16 months in prison to do. We do not resign ourselves to the idea that it is not released much earlier. Each passing day, after these more than 5 years in prison, is a day that sees Salah imprisoning too. A notable difference of Gilad Shalit, and it's not our fault, the fate of Salah is not linked to negotiations obscure.

His release depends only on the Israeli authorities.

is the only certainty we have - we, but the French authorities.

We do not have to replace them any way they do but it is our responsibility to demand from them as we continued to do so. We have some reasons to continue and keep up the pressure. The new About

held by Adviser to the President, the fact that for the first time the website of the Presidency recalls publicly, in his way, the case of Salah show that our engagement does not leave indifferent and is not in vain.

Salah already very heavily and unfairly "paid" the occupation of Jerusalem and his homeland. It is high time that Salah go home.

New words heard n'endormiront not our intention and our action. On the contrary they show that our efforts are not wasted.

is why our demand - which is the only tangible guarantee of certainty that exists to secure his release - remains stronger than ever:

Liberation Salah Hamouri! And fast!

"They make magic with the money ..."


I found the following comment, signed Corto , in an article Francis Velen (Blog from the rostrum of Geneva), about the volatile situation in Libya:


What Europeans do not see is that what happens in the 'nations' Arab is one thousandth of what the West will will take on the donut!

The Arab world and the West are just two sides of the same coin, you do not see that one side, some produce and other cars, they have oil!

You do not see that at the time the two would finally agree with a U.S. president pro-Arab, or rather pro-Iranian, is busting his nose while on the asphalt still warm in history.

You are all blind and you will see that this is just the beginning and it is not always the one who put the first goal wins the match. Frankly blindness among Arab and Western cowardice is white-hat-white hat and that he will happen if the Arabs come in a huge and incomprehensible civil war, millions of refugees in a Europe brink of bankruptcy. Here is the menu of this new century, a huge confusion in which, not only policies have no solution but did not see it coming so they anchored in corruption. Reread the comments Corto 2 years and you'll see that everything is there!

Personally when I see the UN, the European military powers did not intervene in Libya, so that everything passes was more than likely, I is not nothing wrong with Arab, on the contrary, they had the courage to confront their kleptomaniac monsters, bloodthirsty soulless and supported by the Swiss banks, but I see the sky of the Mediterranean does not planes Italian, French (Land of Human Rights) Domestic ( for once they have been used), or any civilized nation known as the Libyan civilians are being slaughtered, I even shame not to be an Arab!

Is Israel going to do the job? Ban ki Moon has 10,000 soldiers in an attempt to declare a civil war in Côte d'Ivoire, can not, this dog, sending its planes to Libya to calm things down?

We are in Geneva, a city where all the money from Qaddafi sleeps badly bloodied and where the UN welcomes daily catering trucks from Richmond, and nobody has exploded this puppet theater on a budget of tens of billion per year!

This world is screwed up, they screwed up is because you're not even fucking show your frustration on the net! it is fucked because tonight there is not much fats 10'000 Geneva outside the gates of the UN that trap these pests from reality!

A Federal Councillor who wore the headscarf of shame and not even his friend Gaddafi condemned the massacres of civilians, while she wept for not seeing the funds placed Gaddafi in Geneva migrate other paradise!

He would do what the Libyans are in Geneva and all the dictatorships in the world are buried! All the dirty money that junk sleep in Geneva!

Another little surprise, a film sponsored by Polanski on Switzerland, 23 minutes of normal madness! Here, the cultural genius is not subsidized.

A month ago wikileaks should publish documents involving Swiss banks in the dirty business, no one knows why nothing came officially break the web, but copies exist! Revenge is a dish best eaten warm.

Friends Libyan, Egyptian and Tunisian peoples all future free from the grip of dirty money and looted, remember the pressure on the Swiss political, they make magic with the money, they transform the billions millions when it comes to make the people!

Example; marcos would leave 70 million in Swiss banks, the reality was quite different, marcos left several billion! but they are gone as soon as they were to return to the Filipino people!

          How Much Does It Cost To Buy A Great White Shark   
In the Arab world, Islam and Western democracy means dictatorship

by Abdenur Prado - posted Friday, February 11, 2011
Source: UMMA . COM

The West finances dictators in the Middle East and the Arab world for over a century.
pro-democracy demonstrations against dictatorships supported by the West in the Arab world, shows once again the immense hypocrisy of our leaders. Which side Western governments are, with the demonstrators or the dictators? The answer is simple: the side of those who generate millions for the benefit of Western multinational corporations.

But that does not surprise anyone. It is well known that the West has funded more than a century of dictatorships in the Middle East and the Arab world because it is through the autocracies that [the West] were able to control the resources of this region. Even if this leads to the exploitation and misery of people facing decommissioning, orchestrated by the International Monetary Fund, their social services in order to repay foreign debt generated by the millions in arms purchases in the West ... As the aspirations of civil society, increasing poverty, torture and repression, lack of civil liberties and human rights ... No Western leader does not care at all. And all have shown, continuously, without exception, for over a century. Remarks made recently by Henry Kissinger are revealing in this regard: "We've had five presidents who have considered Hosni Mubarak as the best ally of the U.S. objectives in the region. "

Just out of the archives all the statements of Western leaders who praise the Arab tyrants: their economic policies, their continued political stability, their contributions to international security, that they safeguard secularism and prevent the advance of Islamist movements ... In short, for submission to the dictates of Western financial markets and the International Monetary Fund.

This overview does only one variable: whether or not the connivance with the State of Israel. This underscores the critical role of Israel vis-à-vis the maintenance of dictatorships in the Arab world, a fact corroborated by the comments made by Netanyahu in support of Ben Ali and Mubarak as well as decades of collusion with the family Royal Saudi monarchy and other issues of colonialism. No surprise then to learn that Israeli diplomacy has done everything possible to save Mubarak. It is true that Israel has cause for concern, not only for the danger posed by the rise of political Islam, but also because the democratic governments that might arise would maintain not only their country's complicity in the genocide of the Palestinian people. The open border between Gaza and Sinai is crucial for the survival of the Palestinian people. This is a convincing argument in favor of democracy in Egypt and the Middle East! And
"Islamism" in all this? It serves as a bogeyman to justify the support of dictatorships "secularists." However, it obscures the fact that the majority of parties "Islamists" in the Arab world accepted the idea of parliamentary democracy.
An example of this paradigm is that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. In 1944 the founder, Hassan al-Banna, supported the participation in parliamentary elections, saying that the Egyptian constitution was "Islamic" because it recognized that the authority resides in the people, ensured the decision-making through consultation (Shura) and respect for individual freedoms. In some of his writings, he defends parliamentary democracy: "The bases of political organization based on the system of parliamentary representation does not contradict the fundamental principles that Islam has set in organization of power. "Since its founding, the Muslim Brotherhood have repeatedly stated that their intention is not to take power, but to educate society and to influence the system for Islamic ideals in justice being implemented. Despite this, they are portrayed as villains by the media manipulation and by Western governments. (I'm not a fan of the Muslim Brotherhood, but I am against their demonization. For their positions, see their website in English).

There is talk now of returning to Tunisia Rachid al-Ghannouchi, founder and historic leader of the party-Nahda in Tunisia, after 22 years of exile. According Ghannouchi, Islam provides a more fertile than that of the West to carry out democracy. There is a book of Azam Tamimi, where he studied his thought in detail, Rachid Ghannouchi: A Democrat within Islam, published by Oxford University Press. Among his ideals: "an Islamic system based on the will of the majority, free elections, free press, minority protection, equality between laity and religious parties, and achieving complete women's rights in all areas, participation in elections to the freedom to dress as they wish, the right to divorce, and even the right to be head of state. The role of Islam is to provide an ethical system. "

An ethical system that necessarily involves the abolition of usury Financial, which provides a minimum of social services for the entire population and the establishment mechanisms that prevent the accumulation of capital in the hands of a few individuals. An equally valid for Spain than for Egypt.

In Brief: Islamist movements are champions of democracy against tyranny corrupt funded by the West. It is curious to see how the terms were reversed at the point of passing the opposition, which demands democracy, for ... absolutists, and dictators that suppress civil liberties as saviors. The world upside down? The world seen through a mass media manipulation. That is to say, from a perspective of the interests of major Western financial corporations.

Mohamed Hassan: "the causes of the revolution far beyond Tunisia Ben Ali and his party. "

In this new chapter of our series "Understanding the Muslim world," Mohamed Hassan * ((photo-cons) explains the implications of the revolution of Tunisia and its root causes: how nationalism Liberal advocated by Tunisia under Bourguiba interests Western, plunging people into poverty, how a repressive state has put in place to maintain this system, why dictatorships in the Arab world are caused to fall, and how Islam became the condom imperialism




http://w41k.info//48669

(Gregory Lalieu Michel Collon)


In December 2010, riots broke out in Tunisia. A month later, President Ben Ali fled the country after twenty-three year reign. What are the causes of this revolution? And why is it popular movement succeeded in bringing down the dictator where other attempts have failed?

For there to be a revolution, it is necessary that people refuse to live as before and that the ruling class is no longer able to govern as before. On December 17, 2010, Mohamed Bouazizi, a young seller of fruits and vegetables, has sacrificed out of desperation after police had confiscated his goods himself, and that local authorities have to stop working. The conditions were ripe for a revolution broke out in Tunisia Bouazizi and suicide was the trigger.

Indeed, the Tunisians did not want to live as before: they were not accepting corruption, police repression, lack of freedom, unemployment, etc.. Moreover, the ruling class could no longer govern as before. Corruption under Ben Ali had taken a phenomenal amount while the majority of the population had to face insecurity. To maintain this status, police repression would be higher but it had reached its limits. The ruling elite was completely disconnected from the people for whom there was no interlocutor. Therefore, when popular revolts broke out, the ruling class had no choice but to quell the violence. But with the determination of the people, the repression reached its limit. This is one of the keys to the success of the popular revolution of Tunisia: it managed to reach all segments of society, including members of the army and police who sympathized with the demonstrators. The repressive apparatus could no longer function as before either. If a revolt occurs but is not able to combine different segments society, it can not lead a revolution.

Even after the departure of Ben Ali, the protests continue. The situation that Tunisians refuse is not the result of one man? For

signs "Ben Ali emerges" signs were followed by "CDR releases. Tunisians are attacking the president's political party because they fear that one of his men to take power. But in reality, the root causes that led to revolt Tunisians far outweigh Ben Ali and the RCD. It is not enough to turn the president for the people earns his freedom and improves living conditions.

corruption, unemployment, social inequality ... What are the effects of imperialist domination of the West over Tunisia. For Tunisia, after independence, became a project of the United States.

What do you mean by imperialism?


Imperialism is the process by which capitalist powers politically and economically dominated by foreign countries. Western multinationals plunder the resources of Africa, Latin America and Asia. They find opportunities for capital they will accumulate and exploit cheap labor market. I say that multinationals are not buying as they plunder the resources at their fair value and the local people not benefiting from these riches. And this looting would not be possible if these countries operated, there were no leaders to defend the interests of multinationals. These leaders are getting richer in the process. They constitute the so-called comprador bourgeoisie. They have no political vision for their own country does not produce wealth and do not develop a real economy. But personally enriched by trading resources their countries with multinationals. Obviously, the people are the biggest victim in all this!

When you're a nationalist anti-imperialist cons, you are looking to develop for yourself. You nationalize key sectors of your economy, rather than leaving the management to foreign companies. This will create a national economy in the country and you allow it to grow on the basis of independence. That's what I call a national democratic revolution: national independent because of the imperialist powers, democratic as against feudalism and the elements reactionaries in the country.

However, Bourguiba, Tunisia's first president, was considered a socialist. And during his reign, the state played a very important role in the economy.


Bourguiba's political party was socialist in name only. If the state played an important role, it was only for the benefit of an elite only. This is called state capitalism. In addition, Bourguiba has systematically eliminated all the progressive elements and anti-imperialist in his party. So that this party became the party of one man, completely subject to U.S. imperialism.

Habib Bourguiba , great actor in the struggle for independence, was president of Tunisia from 1957 to 1987


What Was Tunisia important for the United States?

To understand the importance of that country to the U.S. strategy, we must analyze the political context of the Arab world in years 50 and 60. In 1952, officers overthrew the monarchy of King Farouk of Egypt and proclaim a republic. With Nasser at the helm Egypt becomes the basis of Arab nationalism inspired with revolutionary ideas of socialism. As evidenced by the nationalization of the Suez Canal, Nasser's arrival in power is a blow to the West because the Egyptian president's policy is totally at odds with the hegemonic Western powers in the Near and Middle East. Worse still: the anti-imperialist ideas of Nasser are emulated in the region. In Yemen for example, where in 1962 a revolution divided the country, the South becoming a bastion of Arab revolutionary movement. The same year, the independence of Algeria sends a strong signal to Africa and the Third World, the imperialist powers put on alert. Libya also note the Qaddafi coup in 1969. The colonel took power and nationalized major sectors of the economy, to the chagrin of the West. The same year, the Islamic revolution in Iran toppled the Shah, one of the most important pillars of U.S. strategy in the Middle East.

short, at that time, an anti-imperialist movement defies strong strategic interests of the United States in the Arab world. Fortunately for Washington, all countries in the region do not follow the path of Nasser. It the case of Tunisia. In 1957, a year after the independence of Tunisia, Bourguiba was one of the first Arab leaders to send U.S. in the prestigious journal, Foreign Affairs. The title of the article? Nationalism best antidote to communism. For the United States who want to counter the influence of Nasser is a godsend! Bourguiba wrote in his article: "With the regard, Tunisia has chosen to make unequivocal its way into the free world from the West." We are in the Cold War. The Soviets argued that Nasser's influence grows in the region. And the U.S. needs pro-imperialist agents Bourguiba as not to lose strategic control of the Arab world.

Nasser announced the nationalization of the Suez Canal in 1956

Can we be both nationalist and pro-imperialist?

Bourguiba was a liberal nationalist with anti-communist ideas which led him to join the imperialist camp in the West. In fact, I feel like George Padmore Bourguiba Arabic. Padmore was a leading Pan-Caribbean origin. In 1956 he wrote a book called Pan-Africanism or Communism: The battle ahead in Africa. Like Bourguiba, he fed anti-communist ideas and even if he declared himself a nationalist, his political vision was largely subservient to the interests of imperialist powers. Nationalism served as a cover, their policy is far from being independent. Padmore had a great influence on the first president of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, one of the instigators of the African Union. Its pro-imperialist ideas were able to spread across the continent with the result that we see today is celebrated around the golden jubilee of independence in Africa, but many Africans know they have never become independent. President Nkrumah himself later regretted having taken the advice of Padmore.

In Tunisia too, the submission to imperialist interests has quickly been felt and it turned out that nationalism advocated by Bourguiba was a facade. In the 70s, for example, the President has passed a series of measures intended to attract foreign investors: tax exemption on company profits for ten years, exemption from all duties and taxes for twenty years, exemption from Tax Income property values, etc.. Tunisia has become a vast workshop of Western multinationals in recent repatriation of profits.

Tunisia did she not still been some good progress under Bourguiba?

Yes, there have been positive developments: education, status of women, etc.. First, because Tunisia were the progressives in his elite players, but they were quickly dismissed. Then, because Tunisia was to be dressed in his finest dress. Indeed, this country played a major role in the strategy of the United States to counter the influence of communism in the Arab world. But what had you on the other side? Progressive revolutionary movements that had toppled backward and monarchies who enjoyed popular support. You could not counteract this movement by advocating a feudal system. Saudi Arabia has done so because it could use its oil money for that. But Tunisia, unable to rely on such resources, should provide some progressive image. In the fight against communism, it was supposed to represent a successful Third World countries have chosen the path of liberal nationalism.

But behind the scenes was less flattering. As I said, Bourguiba has systematically eliminated the progressive elements that do not follow his steps. The anti-imperialists who wanted an independent Tunisia both economically and politically, those who wanted to assert their own position in the Third World and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, all were opposed. Tunisia has in fact been used as a laboratory of the imperialist powers. And what was supposed to represent the success of liberal nationalism has become a dictatorship.

When Ben Ali Bourguiba succeeded in 1987, he continues on the same track?


Absolutely. One can even say that the submission to Western interests has grown. Ben Ali was a pure agent of U.S. imperialism. In 1980, as ambassador to Poland, he even served as a liaison between the CIA and Lech Walesa, the union leader who fought against the Soviet Union.

In 1987, when Ben Ali assumed the presidency of Tunisia, the country was deeply in debt by the capitalist crisis of 1973. Moreover, at that time, the ideas of Milton Friedman and his Chicago Boys were very popular. These ultra-liberal economists believed that the market is an entity capable of regulating themselves and that the state should certainly not interfere in the economy. The technical elite Tunisian largely from U.S. schools were highly influenced by theories of Friedman. Ben Ali then left the state capitalism in effect at the beginning of the era Bourguiba. Under the supervision of the IMF and World Bank, he began a privatization program much more massive than what his predecessor had already begun in the 70s.

What were the effects of this new economic policy?


First, privatization of the Tunisian economy has allowed Ben Ali and his wife's family, Trabelsi, personal enrichment. Corruption has reached a very high level, Tunisia has become a country totally subservient to imperialism, headed by a comprador bourgeoisie. Obviously, Ben Ali and his clan did not have many raw materials to selling out to Western multinationals. But they took advantage of the education system established under Bourguiba to develop a service economy. Indeed, the Tunisian workforce is highly educated and inexpensive at a time. It therefore attracts foreign investors.

Tourism has also developed strong as to become the mainstay of the Tunisian economy. Here we see the lack of political vision of the elite. Indeed, no country can develop its economy based on tourism if not first developed a national economic base. The tourism industry consumes a lot but reported very little to the Tunisian people. Imagine: while Western tourists consume hectoliters of water to bask in pools, Jacuzzis or golf course, the poor peasants in the south face of the drying soil.

But it's not just the farmers who have suffered from this policy. Overall, the social conditions of the Tunisian people deteriorated while the president's entourage has amassed a huge fortune. Everyone knew the regime was corrupt. So to maintain this system, the system should prevent any disputes. The repression became even more brutal penny Ben Ali simple criticism or even the desire for modernity and openness were not allowed. Such a situation could lead to popular revolt. Moreover, trying to monopolize his clan the wealth of the country, Ben Ali has also drew the ire of some of the traditional bourgeois Tunisia.


You say that political repression was very strong. Is there anyway today, opposition forces can guide the people's revolution now that Ben Ali has fallen?

Genuine opposition parties were banned under Ben Ali. However, some continued to exist underground. For example, the first Tunisian Communist Party could not live openly and organize like any political party in a democracy. But he continued to operate secretly through associations of civil society (teachers, farmers, doctors, prisoners ...). The PGWPP was able to form a social base and fired a solid experience of this period. It is exceptional in the Arab world.

I think two major challenges now await the opposition parties. First, they must come forward and make themselves known to the general public in Tunisia. Then they must organize a united front of resistance to imperialism. In fact, the imperialist powers seek to maintain the system without Ben Ali Ben Ali. We see now with the Union government National rejected the Tunisians, which is very positive. But the imperialist powers will not stop there. They will certainly seek to impose an International Electoral Commission to support candidates who defend to their best interests. It is therefore necessary to resist interference by creating a united front to build a true democracy.


Opposition parties are they able to overcome their differences to create such a front?

I know that some political parties were reluctant to associate Islamo-nationalist movement Ennahda. This movement emerged in the 80s. He advocated an anti-imperialist line and in fact, has suffered political repression. Why not combine Ennahda in front of resistance to the interference of foreign powers? Tunisia is a Muslim country. It is normal that a political force emerges with an Islamo-nationalist trend. You can not prevent that.

But each of these movements must be studied separately, with its own specificities. This was done by the communist PGWPP. They studied scientifically objective conditions that apply Tunisia. Their conclusion is that the Communists and Islamo-nationalists have been victims of political repression and that even though their programs differ, they share common ground: they want an end to dictatorship and the independence of Tunisia. The Communists have proposed an alliance with the Islamo-nationalists long ago. Of course, the PGWPP does not make Tunisia a Islamic state. Its political agenda is different from that of al-Nahda. But it is the Tunisian people who will judge these differences democratically. Elections should be a contest open to everyone. That is true democracy.

Precisely opposition parties gathered in front of 14 January to fight against the interim government of Mohamed Ghannouchi, a henchman of former President Ben Ali. A hopeful sign?

Absolutely, Tunisia is on the right track: all opposition parties banned so far have created a united front to prevent the system is maintained without Ben Ali Ben Ali. Also underline the role played by the base of the union UGTT. The head of the union authorized under Ben Ali was corrupt and working with the state police. But since the basis of the union put pressure on its leaders and members who UGTT were part of the transitional government have resigned. Although much remains to be done, democracy wins Tunisian institutions under pressure from the people.

Western powers opposed to that. They want to impose democracy in Tunisia where only low-intensity "good" candidates would be allowed to stand for election. If you look at the type of democracy that the United States enjoy, you come across Ethiopia. The U.S. government has provided $ 983 million to countries in the Horn of Africa for the year 2010. That same year, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, in office since 16 years, was reelected with 99.5 percent of the vote! It's even better than Ben Ali! The reality is this: behind their rhetoric in support of the Tunisian people, the Western powers continue to actively support many other Ben Ali in the world.

The United States could not they support other candidates pro-imperialist, but in the eyes of Tunisians, were not associated with the Ben Ali era?

It would be difficult. There is a part of the comprador bourgeoisie which was lésinée by the corrupt system of Ben Ali. But this elite is not strong enough control the popular movement and not enough grounding in the Establishment to win.

The United States had also thought of another strategy: a few months ago, while Ben Ali was still in power, the U.S. ambassador has visited a Communist leader in prison. Officially, a simple observation visit in the framework of respect for human rights. Unofficially, the U.S. anticipated the departure of Ben Ali and wanted to test the waters. Their goal was to get the Communists against the Islamo-nationalists, divide the resistance to imperialism to weaken more. But the Communists Tunisia does not fall into the trap. They are very familiar with the strategy developed by Henry Kissinger in the 80s in the Middle East. They published a very good study on the subject and know they should not take orders from outside or adhere to ideologies manufactured by foreign powers.

Why the U.S. have they abandoned Ben Ali? Had he gone too far in personal enrichment? According to a cable Wikileaks, the U.S. ambassador was very critical of the system of quasi-mafioso Tunisian president, organized corruption are obstacles to investments by foreign companies.

This is not the problem. The United States does not care about corruption. Instead, it is a key element of the system of domination on the U.S. South. In fact, Washington was aware of the internal situation in Tunisia and knew that Ben Ali would not be able to govern. The West must now ensure that the replacement of Ben Ali will continue to defend their interests. The stakes are high. The capitalist crisis is causing serious problems in the West. Besides this, China is getting stronger and now provides more loans than the World Bank and other imperialist powers combined. She even wants to buy a significant portion of the debt of the euro area partly because it has economic interests with European countries, on the other imperialist powers to divide, the EU is historically associated with states USA.

In such a context, the Tunisian people's movement, under the auspices of a revolutionary leadership, could establish an independent government and take advantage of this situation of a multipolar world. The imperialist powers fear that countries that were traditionally under his rule become economically independent, turning also to China. Tunisia could build relationships with the Asian giant to develop its commercial ports. And it would seriously question the concept of the Mediterranean Dialogue, this expansion of NATO to the countries of the Mediterranean that is not a dialogue but a mere instrument of Western domination.

Another country that seems to fear democracy in Tunisia and in the region, Israel. Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom said shortly after the fall of Ben Ali that the development of democracy in Arab countries threaten Israel's security. This country often called only democracy in the Middle East, would he be afraid of competition?

Under a democratic facade, Israel is a fascist, apartheid state. In the region, it can not ally with repressive dictatorial states, led by comprador bourgeoisie that weaken the body of the Arab nation. Currently, these Arab states are rich countries inhabited by poor people. But if a democratic government in the full sense of the term emerges, it will increase economically the Arab nation as a whole. And this economic development will lead to an alliance of Arab countries against the state racist oppressing the Palestinians. Israel fears this course.

Moreover, there is a very big gap between the official positions of Arab dictatorships and the popular sentiment about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since Egyptian President Sadat visited Israel in 1977, Egypt's position is "we want peace." But it is a position imposed by force to the population. And the current Egyptian government is not content to maintain peaceful relations with Tel Aviv. It participates actively in the strangulation of Gaza, while the majority of Egyptians in solidarity with Palestinians.

It's the same alignment of Arab dictatorships on Washington politics. Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt are allies of the United States while the populations of these countries are anti-imperialists. I was in Egypt when Muntadhar al-Zaidi, a journalist in Iraq, threw his shoes on George W. Bush. The Egyptian population was celebrated as a hero. I heard of fathers wanting to marry their daughter with the reporter. Still, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is one of the most faithful allies of Washington.

Do you think the revolution Tunisia a domino effect could cause the downfall of other dictatorships in the Arab world?

70% of the population in Arab countries is less than thirty years and knows that unemployment, police repression and corruption. But all these young people want to live. And to live, they need change. This is the reality of each country. It is therefore not even need a domino effect, the objective conditions are ripe for further revolutions erupt.

People no longer want to live as before. But for their part, the ruling classes are they unable to govern as before?

course. And we see in Egypt today. There are police everywhere in this country. But it is impossible to control everything. A state police has its limitations and the Arab world have reached.

Furthermore, information plays a very important role today. Tunisians, Egyptians and peoples of the Third World are better informed through Al-Jazeera as part of an Internet and social networks on the other. The evolution of information technology has increased the level of education and consciousness of people. The people no longer a mass of illiterate peasants. You have a lot of very smart young people, with a certain practical sense, able to circumvent censorship and of mobilizing the Internet.

there in these countries the opposition forces can guide the popular revolutions?

Why Punishment is so important if these dictators were not in danger? Why the comprador bourgeoisie, so greedy, she would spend so much money in the repressive apparatus if she was not afraid to be reversed? If there was no opposition, all this would not be necessary.

the side of Western observers, many fear that the collapse of these regimes Arab favors the rise of Islamism. As summarized so finely Christophe Barbier, editor of L'Express, "Ben Ali is better than the bearded." These fears proved on of Islamism are they based?

Islamism became the condom of imperialism. Western powers justify their strategy of domination in the Arab-Muslim world under the guise of fighting against Islam. There are Islamists everywhere today. Soon, we shall find even traces of Al-Qaeda on Mars if it is useful to the imperialists!

In reality, the West has always needed to invent an enemy to justify its hegemonic designs and incredible military spending (financed by taxpayers). After the fall of the Soviet Union and the demise of the communist enemy is Islam and Al Qaeda who have played the roles of villains villains.

But the West has no problem with Islamism. It adapts very well to this trend in countries like Saudi Arabia. Moreover, he himself fostered the rise of Islamist movements to counter the Arab nationalism at a time. The real problem for the West is anti-imperialism. That's why he tries to discredit any popular movement in the Arab world who is opposed to its interests by affixing the label "Islamist."

Finally, it should not be very smart to think that the Arab dictatorships are bulwarks against the rise of religious fanaticism. Instead, these repressive regimes have led some of the population to be radicalized. Who could afford to say that such and such people have no right to democracy? In a truly democratic country, different political forces may emerge. But the bourgeoisie comprador ruling in the Arab dictatorships can not convince people. She can not even face to face. To defend the imperialist interests, you must prevent other political forces to emerge because they are likely to convince the people against a corrupt elite. The West has always sought to maintain dictatorships that served its interests by waving the specter of Islamism. But the Arab peoples need democracy. They claim it today and nobody can not go against these claims.

Democratic Transition in Tunisia

"Tunisia is between radical and authoritarian democracy"
EROS BY SANA (January 31, 2011)

Source: http://www.bastamag .net/article1401.html

How to build the democratic transition in Tunisia? Vincent Geisser, a researcher at the Institute for Research and Studies on the Arab and Muslim world, analyzes the role played by different actors in Tunisia - political opponents, former regime of Ben Ali, "Islamist" party, army, police - and foreign powers. It describes possible scenarios of democratic consolidation in the coming weeks. Maintenance.

Basta! : Where is the revolution in Tunisia? What are the strategies of the opposing forces to build the "transition Democratic?

Vincent Geisser [1]: The "democrats" Tunisians who supported and accompanied the revolution are deeply divided over the future of the protest movement. There are those who feel the need to strengthen the nascent democracy by putting a definitive end to the protest process. They are supporters of a certain security standards, based on a historic compromise between the "doves" of the former regime, opponents and independent representatives UGTT single union (the General Union of Tunisian Workers). They want to consolidate the democratic transition, including by dealing with the army and the party more "healthy" of the security apparatus, as well as some former bosses of the regime known for their "openness." This is the position advocated by Najib Chebbi (Democratic Progressive Party), former opponent in Ben Ali, currently Minister of the transitional government.

Others want to eradicate all traces of the old regime and the party-state, and reject any compromise. This is where supporters of Marzouki (Congress for the Republic) and members of the Communist Party of Tunisian Workers (POCT). And of course leaders movement of "unemployed graduates" of the interior. They wish to push through the "democratic revolution" to give birth to a new political, economic and social development. Both camps have no real difference in political culture, they are animated by democratic ideals. What separates them fundamentally, the strategy of rupture and especially the "democracy agenda".

What remains of the old regime?


There is some disappointment today protesting actors, quite understandable - I think particularly young people "unemployed graduates". But there is no objective risk of returning to the old regime or system restore mafia. A break has occurred. The dictator is gone. This is a crucial element when it is known that while Tunisia was around him, with extreme personalization of power. mafia clans and profiteers - families Ben Ali, Trabelsi and others - have fled. Darkest segments of the security apparatus were largely dismantled.

If we can legitimately understand the disappointment of " radical democrats, "as Marzouki, Hammami, Nasraoui, and unemployed graduates who feel that their revolution was stolen, the former regime is ousted. We are in a transition phase. But this transition can lead to a regime that bastard would an independent candidate access to presidential power, with new elements but also with elements of the old regime. This will lead to reinforce a kind of "authoritarian democracy" or "democratic authoritarianism".

What role did the Tunisian army played in the revolution and what role can it play in the future?

The army has been in recent weeks a fundamental role, not supporting the plan of repression of Ben Ali. She clearly rejected the extreme policies of the supreme leader, and instead played a protective role players protesters. The reason? The army is not connected with the mafia and clan interests of power. Unlike Egypt, Syria or even Algeria, Tunisia army has no direct interest in industry or in the management of oil revenues. It is an army of about 35,000 men, composed of employees, officials, technicians and engineers.

should not be provided to paint a romantic portrait. The Tunisian army played a repressive role in 1978 to channel the social movements, and in 1981 and 1984 to quell the "bread riots". This time, she refused the role because the sources of legitimacy of the regime were exhausted. Ben Ali was discredited, corruption was widespread. Faced with this stalemate, the military has understood that the only solution was to replace the dictator.

This reaction - some would say "Republican" - is primarily dictated by pragmatic: generals and senior officers are convinced that a crackdown could lead to chaos and their own demise. As the "political fluidity" present, the Tunisian army can play a more important role in the constitutional process and the "pacification" social, oscillating between registry and registry security mediation with the forces of the country.

"security apparatus" Tunisia is it still present and operational?

France has 60 million inhabitants, Tunisia 9 million. Yet both countries have almost the same number of police officers: 135.000. is huge! Tunisia is one of the countries with the most police per capita. The security apparatus, through the Ministry of Interior is fully engaged in repression. Part of the police fired into the crowd with live ammunition. It is the security apparatus of Ben Ali who is responsible for nearly 70 deaths officially deplored and thousands injured. But the whole apparatus police is not corrupt: the "rotten" mafia of the security apparatus was largely dismantled.

There is more to fear from areas of the Department of the Interior directly to the clans and Ben Ali Trabelsi. They are currently in hiding. I do not believe in a return of "old demons" even if the future Tunisian democracy can deal with safety trends similar to those we see now in France with Nicolas Sarkozy. In this sense there is a danger of creating in Tunisia in the coming months an "authoritarian democracy".

What role can the "Islamists" in the democratic process?


The "Islamists" Tunisians have long been integrated into "democratic forums." They are "fundamentalists embedded" in the democratic debate in exile. They participated in Paris, London, Marseille numerous opposition rallies, alongside the left, communist, socialist, even anti-Islamic. Many leaders of the left Tunisian 'secular' leaders have frequently met with "Islamists". In many ways the 'fundamentalists' are already integrated into the political game of Tunisia.

For the party Ennahdha (Renaissance) Rached Ghannouchi, the model is not radical Islam or Islamism Salafi Saudi-style, but the AKP, which currently leads Turkey. This means accepting the parliamentary game and advocating economic liberalism tinged social, and especially a certain pragmatism with other Democrats. There is a huge myth about "Islamists" of Tunisia. The party Ennahdha is more of a liberal conservative party, which is not at all in a process of creating an Islamic state or Islamic theocracy. The Islamists classic "Tunisians are now looking to Ankara, they did nothing" green fascists. " How

react today Western countries and Arab neighbors?


The United States has played a leading role in the departure of Ben Ali.
support President Barack Obama to the social movement, even if he was shy, was much sharper than that of France. Beyond this symbolic support, it would seem that the Obama administration has given its support to the Tunisian army and "doves" of the regime (Mohamed Ghannouchi, Prime Minister and Kamel Morjane, the Minister of Foreign Affairs) to sacrifice Ben Ali. It is clear that the United States supported the transition scenario.

Regarding the Arab countries, we can really worry that some plans make every effort to derail the democratic process in Tunisia. Saudi Arabia, Libya, Algeria has no interest in a democracy can arise in the Arab world. A "loose coalition" of Arab dictators could be to sabotage or disrupt the democratic process in Tunisia.

Support from U.S., EU and France to Tunisian Democrats is essential. Either you play the card of democracy in the Arab world or, rather, play an ambiguous role and promotes the perverse game of Saudi Wahhabis, the megalomaniac dictatorship of the regime of Gaddafi and Algerian generals. In this case, we should not complain about the progress of the Salafist jihadist ideology!

How Does France have made such errors of analysis on the situation of Tunisia?

The official position of France was not based on an error analysis, but on a political logic of total and blind support for Ben Ali regime. Interpret the statements of Michele Alliot-Marie as a political mistake is wrong. This is not a political mistake, this is a failing policy. France has always supported authoritarian regimes . She believes that one does diplomacy in relations between States and civil societies are not important.

The United States have both supported Ben Ali and developed concrete relations with unions and all the dissidents of the regime. In contrast, France has always prohibited its diplomacy to have any contact with everything that could affect the quality of its relations with Ben Ali. This blindness is the logic of French policy towards the Arab world: "We support dictators against the risks of destabilization! It seems that France has included a number of mistakes. Hopefully it reorients its policy towards Tunisia openly supporting the democratic process.

What are the possible scenarios in the weeks and months ahead?

Tunisia has a choice between two options. Either authoritarian democratic consolidation that would lead the country until elections, with a broad coalition around an opponent as independent Nejib Chebbi (PDP), with some elements of former regime elements and the trade union left. In this case, the elections will certainly be "democratic" (at least in appearance), but the scenario is first "programmed" the government candidate will have particular ways superior to those of its opponents. This scenario of "managed democracy" is intended to protect Western interests and pursue the integration of Tunisia in the "world economy" in the footsteps of the Bank World Bank and the IMF. A scenario where the candidate would be a sort of "Tunisian Ouattara.

Another assumption: the pressure of the street continues or increases and pushes the government to resign or to go much further, with the dissolution of the party of Ben Ali (RCD), the establishment of a genuine process with the constitutional election of a constituent assembly. Total semi-democracy or democracy? Radical break with the old regime or consolidation autoritaro-democratic? This is how I would put the political future of Tunisia. A future which, in all cases, will be without Ben Ali.

Cairo, January 26, 2011. Second day of protests in Egypt after call webcast , and relayed by a few printed newspapers like Al Masry Al Youm and Al Shorouk. Until 25, no one knew what would happen and we joked about the revolution announced by dint of a joke. And what are you doing tomorrow? Ah, tomorrow, I revolution. But the joke was not one. We went down the street and have taken. It was so simple. Why wait so long.

The police intimidation and fear of dying tortured lead to paralysis. That is also simple to understand and that is why we cry. We live for thirty years in fear and falsehood. The Egyptians are friendly, hospitable, peaceful and a joker. Pardon me, reader. It was a lie. We live in fear. Fear of displeasing. Fear of dying of hunger. Afraid to say something wrong and being raped, beaten, humiliated in a police station or in the street before our families and our neighbors. No, reader, Egypt is not alone in moderate Middle East is one of the most sophisticated didacture, the finest, most skillful and most vicious. His talent as despicable? Control information and control what you, outside, think of it. The real talent of Egypt is that of a Master senseless filtering information, disinformation, image creation, isolation of any event likely to snowball. Courage is viral, it is said, when the dictatorship was provided with an effective antidote, the total control of society. Official sources, security forces and Egyptian intelligence count 1,500,000 people. By themselves, they represent nearly 2% of the population.

Scoop. The demonstration on January 25, 2011 is not the first. Events, there are almost daily and for years. 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. Everywhere the people shouted his anger in the black absolute misinformation. In May 2008, Mahalla, a provincial town famous for its textile industry, thousands of workers without pay had taken possession of their factories, the street, pushed the anti-riot trucks and debunked a giant portrait of President Hosni Mubarak . In Egypt, people have seen these images do not meet the Gaumont Opera. During the events, and to control information leaks, police spotters were posted on trains and checked one by one the passengers bound for Mahalla to arrest journalists and bloggers. Challiss McDonough, VOA, was one of them.

the benefit of his own safety, the Mubarak regime leaves nothing to chance. The state allocates 15 billion Egyptian pounds (2 billion euros) to the Interior cons 4.5 billion (64 million) for education and $ 5 billion for health (71 million).

Paris on the Nile

To keep a little of that light, sunshine and sweetness, columns, plant, tops and bas-reliefs of sphinxes, which dream ... I ' I ran Paris to find traces of Egypt, I found it and ready to smile sometimes, follow me!

the 17th century already ...
A Pierre Aubert, responsible for collecting tax on salt, the salt tax partnership building in the Marais a mansion . Built between 1656 and 1659 , the scenery is especially entrusted to the brothers Marsy. It Hotel Salé (5 rue de Thorigny, Paris 75004), Picasso museum since 1985.
Two sphinxes (lion body and bust of woman), with front paws crossed . A garland covers the sides and nemes (Egyptian headdress) is topped with crenellated towers
(I admit not having seen such Egypt ...)
Here is one who watches!

Not far away, along the Seine , 2a Wharf Celestine, 4 th arrondissement, the hotel door Fieubet (Gaspard Fieubet, Chancellor of Queen Marie-Therese) is guarded by two sphinxes,
that as the left wing and courtyard garden on the back cover are from the time of construction and renovation by the Sweat and Vicott on plans by architect Jules Mansart Hardoin in the years 1676 - 1681 . For the rest, since 1857 the hotel is a pastiche of Baroque Italian-English.


Along the Seine - stop at the Louvre, Egyptian Antiquities destination, if the desire is there, of course! - You can reach the garden of Tuileries (75001), near la Concorde to find " the Nile," marble, by Lorenzo Ottone ( 1688 - 1692)

This Italian sculptor (1658-1736) is best known for its baroque statues religious (cons-reform) in Rome.

In the next century, 18 th , and a long way to go to the park Bagatelle (Bois de Boulogne Route de Sevres to Neuilly and Allée de Longchamp , Paris 75016). Sphinxes ... by two, before the castle (18th century Folly built by the Comte d'Artois in 1777 after a bet with Queen Marie-Antoinette) ...

Oops! these, the garden, are well suited ... Egyptian character really, is not it?

A pair, controlled by Lhuillier 1778 by Belanger, architect of the Comte d'Artois to the steps of the castle. Lhuillier subcontracted in sculpture at Philip Lawrence Rolland (1746-1816) and fought in 1781.

And ... Bonaparte and then the campaign and the shipment Egypt (1798-1801).
A fighter, Maximilian Cafarelli, General (Engineering) to the wooden leg , scholar and philosopher, who held a key role in preparing the expedition will give Egypt as far his talent to improve the protection of Cairo, facilitate liaison between Alexandria and the Nile, participate in the creation of the Institute of Egypt. Creations of bread ovens, construction of windmills, water supply, irrigation, urbanization, conservation of "objects antique ", etc.. its activities are manifold.
He follows Napoleon en route to Syria, attended the massacre of Jaffa, and died before St. Jean d'Acre: the failure of Bonaparte the end of the dream of the Orient!
Even if little known, a street named after him, close to Temple Street (75003)

Part of Toulon, the expedition took with her soldiers but also 167 scientists, engineers and artists Members of the Commission of Science and Arts: Dolomieu geologist, mathematician Gaspard Monge (a founder of the Ecole Polytechnique), the chemist Claude Louis Berthollet , Vivant Denon, the mathematician Jean-Joseph Fourier, physicist Etienne-Louis Malus , naturalist Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire , engineer Nicolas-Jacques Conté the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers are part of the trip, the sculptor Jean-Jacques Castex ...
Dolomieu Scientists (since 1879), Malus (since 1879), Berthollet, Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and Monge have a street in their name in the 5 th Borough Street Monge constituting a sort of central axis.

Deodat Dolomieu (1750-1801), is recruited by the chemist Berthollet January 4, 1798 to participate in the expedition to Egypt. Upon landing on Egyptian soil, he undertook the verification of spatial data he had read in ancient authors, Greek and Latin . At the same time, following his experience in Malta he set up and monitor mills, grinding wheels, gears, flour and ovens for the manufacture of rolls of the army of General Bonaparte East. Urged by his friend Sucy, chief officer of the army of the East, returning to France with him, refuses Dolomieu, as two more months living in Egypt are necessary for the study of the Nile delta. This in turn will be captured in Calabria by Queen of the Two Sicilies. Stripped of its collections and manuscripts, it survives very painfully in a cell with almost no light with a few books he has managed to hide. This prison, as a criminal State in a dark dungeon of Messina in Sicily, will last 21 months. Dolomieu owed his deliverance to the military victory of Bonaparte at Marengo, June 14, 1800. Marked by his captivity, he died 17 months later.
It owes its name to the sustainability of mineral and rock that he discovered, dolomite.

Etienne-Louis Malus , physicist and mathematician (1775-1812) working to study Light . He participated in the expedition and became a member of the Institute Egypt

Claude Louis Berthollet (1748 - 1822) chemist , hand in Egypt in the Committee of Science and Arts, where he joined the Institute Egypt in the physics section and was elected vice president. He was elected president the following year. He made important research on natron to enable it to develop his theory on the affinities. In 1802 he was appointed chairman of the committee responsible for preparing the Description of Egypt .

During the expedition, Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire , French naturalist (1772 - 1844) passion for archeology to zoology as well as because he found in some graves animal mummies. He studied diligently birds, monkeys, crocodiles
(in Paris it!)
and snakes of Egypt, collected many specimens and made many communications various topics. After the surrender of French troops (August 1801), he played bitterly to the English collections he had so much trouble to set up and managed to return them intact in France they are so rich that their inventory it takes several years


Gaspard Monge (1746-1818) was a mathematician whose work touches to descriptive geometry, infinitesimal analysis and analytic geometry. After playing a major role in the French Revolution, both politically and in terms of establishing a new education system, He is responsible for mission in the expedition to Egypt (1798-1799).

Jean-Jacques Castex , (1731-1822), sculptor and is part of the Expedition to Egypt.
In January 1799, he accompanied the geographer Bertre engineer in his trip to Fayoum and is part of the commission led by Girard, who share Cairo March 19, 1799 for Upper Egypt . He creates a wax model, reduced to a third of Dendera Zodiac.
He is still famous to be carved on the great temple of Philae , registration

" County has all the sciences in the head and all the arts in hand. " said Monge.
Nicolas Jacques Conte (1755-1805), invented the pencil as we know even today, consisting of a graphite mine and clay inserted in a body made of cedar wood. He was also one of the organizers of National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts . He took part in the expedition to Egypt with the dual capacity as head of brigade balloonists and director of engineering workshops. As such, it has created and is creating all sorts of instruments and tools.
From August 22, 1798, Conte was a member of the first Institute of Egypt, commissioned by the then government to lead the creation of great work that the commission would publish Egypt, Description Egypt.
Street County is in the 3 rd district, very close to the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers
Mentioned several times, the engravings of the Description of Egypt is exciting and always consult a reference. Do not hesitate, just one click! careful surveys that are the source of these illustrations are due mostly to two boys, Prosper Jollois and Edouard Devilliers . These two men, engineers fresh out of the Ecole Polytechnique, arrive in Egypt in 1799. Members of the subcommittee that studied the regime of the Nile and the irrigation system, they are much more passionate for ancient monuments they discover. Soon completed their tasks, they "devour" the monuments. "The temples of Dendera, Esneh, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Philae, Luxor and Karnak and Thebes, the ancient Antinoe" erected by the Roman emperor Hadrian, come alive in their pencils.

          7 cognitive biases that marketers should know about   

When psychologists just started coming up with theoretical models to explain people's behavior, they've naturally assumed it's somewhat rational. For example, a person's behavior should be correlated with their opinions and attitudes. Or, for example, people should behave in a way that benefits them. Or benefits their children. It took decades of research to prove all of that wrong. People are irrational. Most of their decisions are made with no regard for events and consequences outside of a particular narrow domain; their actions are extremely sensitive to arbitrary reference points, and preferences are so context dependent that can be considered either highly unstable or essentially nonexistent. At least that's what research shows.

          Mulgrew Miller: “Living in the Shadows of Giants”   

© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


“Don’t cross a bridge to get home or to work:” I guess the expression contains more than a hint of caution and admonition, especially if you’ve lived some time in the San Francisco Bay area and seen the nightmarish traffic back-ups a closed bridge can cause on the local, television news.

Thankfully, I never experienced such a delay in all the years I lived and worked in San Francisco,

But I sure caught a taste of what such an experience would be like as I was headed north back to the Oakland, CA airport to catch a return flight to my relocated home in southern California following some business appointments in the Silicon Valley.

A major accident on the Bay Bridge between San Francisco and Oakland had caused a traffic back-up so serious that it extended south on US 880 to about 10 miles below the airport.

The was no alternative and plenty of later flights so I just relaxed and turned on the FM-Jazz station while I waited things out in the rental car that was crawling along at death-defying speed of 3 MPH.

The radio broadcast that I tuned into was an interview with pianist Mulgrew Miller who was appearing through the upcoming weekend with his trio at Yoshi’s Jazz Club located on a portion of the waterfront which the City of Oakland had reclaimed from surplus shipping docks and refurbished into a lovely commercial-cum-residential area.

I knew of Mulgrew’s work through recordings he had made during his long association with drummer Tony Williams’ quintet in the 1980s and 1990s, but I had never heard him play in person.

He sounded very warm and cordial during the radio interview and I thought, “Well, at the rate things are going with the crawling traffic, maybe I’ll just book into a local hotel and catch one of Mulgrew’s sets at Yoshi’s.”

Of all the remarks Mulgrew made during the exchange with the interviewer, one stayed with me: “It’s tough to get any recognition as a Jazz musician today because we are living in the shadow of Giants.”

This is not verbatim, but earlier in his talk, Mulgrew had said that many of the pianists  during the bebop era, for example Al Haig, Joe Albany, Dodo Marmarosa, John Lewis, and even some pianists during the later hard bop era like Sonny Clark, Horace Silver and Walter Bishop, Jr., were not original stylists.

They basically played in the manner of Bud Powell and gained a certain measure of recognition and approval for being able to do so.

But musicians like himself, who continue in this bebop piano tradition and perhaps add some of the newer influences like Ahmad Jamal, McCoy Tyner or Keith Jarrett to their approach get little respect because we are not “… the next Bud Powell or Art Tatum or Bill Evans.”

“Why? Not all of us can be giants like Bud and Art or Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. We are doing our part to keep the Jazz tradition alive and even move it forward a little, but we get little respect for what we do accomplish and put down for what we don’t.”


None of this was conveyed with animosity by Mulgrew, but you could certainly sense his disappointment and his displeasure.

The interview then trailed off and was replaced by the playing of one of Mulgrew’s recordings in its entirety.

By some miracle I was just pulling into the hired car parking lot when the interviewer returned so I did not get to hear the rest of Mulgrew’s talk.

The following year The Mulgrew Miller Trio Live at Yoshi’s was issued as a double CD on MaxJazz [[MXJ 212/208] and I picked up a copy along with the March 1, 2005 edition of Downbeatin which the following article about Mulgrew by Ted Panken appeared.

Mulgrew passed away on May 28, 2013 and the editorial staff at JazzProfiles thought it might be nice to remember him on these pages with a reprint of his Downbeat interview and the Nat Chinen obituary that was published in The New York Times.

Mulgrew Miller: No Apologies 

“Ironies abound in the world of Mulgrew Miller. On the one hand, the 49-year-old pianist is, as Eric Reed pointed out, "the most imitated pianist of the last 25 years." On the other, he finds it difficult to translate his exalted status into full-blown acceptance from the jazz business.

"It's a funny thing about my career," Miller said. "Promoters won't hire my band, but they'll book me as a sideman and make that the selling point of the gig. That boggles my mind."

Miller would seem to possess unsurpassed qualifications for leadership. As the 2004 trio release Live At Yoshi's (MaxJazz) makes evident, no pianist of Miller's generation brings such a wide stylistic palette to the table. A resolute modernist with an old-school attitude, he's assimilated the pentagonal contemporary canon of Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett, as well as Woody Shaw's harmonic innovations, and created a fluid personal argot.

His concept draws on such piano-as-orchestra signposts as Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Erroll Garner, the "blowing piano" of Bud Powell, the disjunctive syncopations and voicings of Thelonious Monk, and the melodic ingenuity of gums like Hank Jones, Tommy Flanagan and Cedar Walton. With technique to burn, he finds ways to conjure beauty from pentatonics and odd intervals, infusing his lines with church and blues strains and propelling them with a joyous, incessant beat.


"I played with some of the greatest swinging people who ever played jazz, and I want to get the quality of feeling I heard with them," Miller said. "It's a sublime way to play music, and the most creative way to express myself. You can be both as intellectual and as soulful as you want, and the swing beat is powerful but subtle. I think you have to devote yourself to it exclusively to do it at that level."

Consequential apprenticeships with the Mercer Ellington Orchestra, Betty Carter, Johnny Griffin and Shaw launched Miller's career. A 1983-'86 stint with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers put his name on the map, and he cemented his reputation during a long association with Tony Williams' great cuspof-the-'90s band, a sink-or-swim environment in which Miller thrived, playing, as pianist Anthony Wonsey recalls, "with fire but also the maturity of not rushing."

By the mid '80s, Miller was a fixture on
New York's saloon scene. Later, he sidemanned extensively with Bobby Hutcherson, Benny Golson, James Moody and Joe Lovano, and from 1987 to 1996 he recorded nine trio and ensemble albums for Landmark and RCANovus.

Not long after his 40th birthday, Miller resolved to eschew club dates and one-offs, and to focus on his own original music. There followed a six-year recording hiatus, as companies snapped up young artists with tenuous ties to the legacy of hardcore jazz.

"I won't call any names," Miller says, "but a lot of people do what a friend of mine calls 'interview music.' You do something that's obviously different, and you get the interviews and a certain amount of attention. Jazz is part progressive art and part folk art, and I've observed it to be heavily critiqued by people who attribute progressivity to music that lacks a folk element. When Charlie Parker developed his great conception, the folk element was the same as Lester Young and the blues shouters before him. Even when Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane played their conceptions, the folk element was intact. But now, people almost get applauded if they don't include that in their expression. If I reflected a heavy involvement in Arnold Schoenberg or some other ultra-modern composers, then I would be viewed differently than I am. Guys who do what I am doing are viewed as passé.

"A lot of today's musicians learn the rudiments of playing straight-ahead, think they've got it covered, become bored, and say, 'Let me try something else,'" Miller continued. "They develop a vision of expanding through different areas - reggae here, hip-hop there, blues here, soul there, classical music over here and being able to function at a certain level within all those styles. Rather than try to do a lot of things pretty good, I have a vision more of spiraling down to a core understanding of the essence of what music is."

This being said, Miller-who once wrote a lovely tune called "Farewell To Dogma" -continues to adhere to the principle that "there is no one way to play jazz piano and no one way that jazz is supposed to sound." He is not to be confused with the jazz police. His drummer, Karriem Riggins, has a second career as a hip-hop producer, and has at his fingertips a lexicon of up-to-the-second beats. When the urge strikes, bassist Derrick Hodge might deviate from a walking bass line to slap the bass Larry Graham style. It's an approach familiar to Miller, who grew up in
Greenwood, Miss., playing the music of James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Al Green in various Upper Delta cover bands.

"It still hits me where I live," he says. "It's Black music. That's my roots. When I go home, they all know me as the church organist from years ago, so it's nothing for me to walk up to the organ and fit right in. I once discussed my early involvement in music with Abdullah Ibrahim, and he described what I went through as a community-based experience. Before I became or wanted to become a jazz player, I played in church, in school plays, for dances and for cocktail parties. I was already improvising, and always on some level it was emotional or soul or whatever you want to call it. I was finding out how to connect with people through music.

"By now, I have played jazz twice as long as I played popular music, and although that style of playing is part of my basic musical being, I don't particularly feel that I need to express myself through it," he continued. "It's all blues. The folk element of the music doesn't change. The blues in 1995 and in 1925 is the same thing. The technology is different. But the chords are the same, the phrasing is the same, the language is the same-exact same. I grew up on that. It's a folk music. Folk music is not concerned with evolving."

For all his devotion to roots, Miller is adamant that expansion and evolution are key imperatives that drive his tonal personality. "I left my hometown to grow, and early on I intended to embrace as many styles and conceptions as I could," he said. "When I came to
New York I had my favorites, but there was a less celebrated, also brilliant tier of pianists who played the duo rooms, and I tried to hear all of those guys and learn from them. The sound of my bands changes as the musicians expand in their own right. I'm open, and all things are open to interpretation. I trust my musicians-their musicianship, insights, judgments and taste-and they tend to bring things off in whatever direction they want to go. In the best groups I played with, spontaneity certainly was a strong element."

Quiet and laid-back, determined to follow his muse, Miller may never attain mass consumption. But he remains sanguine.

"I have moments, but I don't allow myself to stay discouraged for long," he said. "I worked hard to maintain a certain mental and emotional equilibrium. It's mostly due to my faith. I don't put all my eggs in that basket of being a rich and famous jazz guy. That allows me a certain amount of freedom, because I don't have to play music for money. I play music because I love it. I play the music I love with people I want to play with. I have a long career behind me. I don't have to apologize to anybody for any decisions I make." -Ted Panken” 

Mulgrew Miller, Dynamic Jazz Pianist, Dies at 57

Copyright © The New York Times/Nate Chinen/May 29, 2013.

“Mulgrew Miller, a jazz pianist whose soulful erudition, clarity of touch and rhythmic aplomb made him a fixture in the postbop mainstream for more than 30 years, died on Wednesday in Allentown, Pa. He was 57.

The cause was a stroke, said his longtime manager, Mark Gurley. Mr. Miller had been hospitalized since Friday.

Mr. Miller developed his voice in the 1970s, combining the bright precision of bebop, as exemplified by Bud Powell and Oscar Peterson, with the clattering intrigue of modal jazz, especially as defined by McCoy Tyner. His balanced but assertive style was a model of fluency, lucidity and bounce, and it influenced more than a generation of younger pianists.

He was a widely respected bandleader, working either with a trio or with the group he called Wingspan, after the title of his second album. The blend of alto saxophone and vibraphone on that album, released on Landmark Records in 1987, appealed enough to Mr. Miller that he revived it in 2002 on “The Sequel” (MaxJazz), working in both cases with the vibraphonist Steve Nelson. Among Mr. Miller’s releases in the last decade were an impeccable solo piano album and four live albums featuring his dynamic trio.


Mr. Miller could seem physically imposing on the bandstand — he stood taller than six feet, with a sturdy build — but his temperament was warm and gentlemanly. He was a dedicated mentor: his bands over the last decade included musicians in their 20s, and since 2005 he had been the director of jazz studies at William Paterson University in New Jersey.

If his sideman credentials overshadowed his solo career, it wasn’t hard to see why: he played on hundreds of albums and worked in a series of celebrated bands. His most visible recent work had been with the bassist Ron Carter, whose chamberlike Golden Striker Trio featured Mr. Miller and the guitarist Russell Malone on equal footing; the group released a live album, “San Sebastian” (In+Out), this year.

Born in Greenwood, Miss., on Aug. 13, 1955, Mr. Miller grew up immersed in Delta blues and gospel music. After picking out hymns by ear at the family piano, he began taking lessons at age 8. He played the organ in church and worked in soul cover bands, but devoted himself to jazz after seeing Mr. Peterson on television, a moment he later described as pivotal.

At Memphis State University, he befriended two pianists, James Williams and Donald Brown, both of whom later preceded him in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Mr. Miller spent several years with that band, just as he did with the trumpeter Woody Shaw, the singer Betty Carter and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, led by Ellington’s son, Mercer. Mr. Miller worked in an acclaimed quintet led by the drummer Tony Williams from the mid-1980s until shortly before Williams died in 1997.

Mr. Miller’s survivors include his wife, Tanya; his son, Darnell; his daughter, Leilani; and a grandson. He lived in Easton, Pa.

Though he harbored few resentments, Mr. Miller was clear about the limitations imposed on his career. “Jazz is part progressive art and part folk art,” he said in a 2005 interview with DownBeat magazine, differentiating his own unassuming style from the concept-laden, critically acclaimed fare that he described as “interview music.” He added, “Guys who do what I am doing are viewed as passé.”


But Mr. Miller worked with so many celebrated peers, like the alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett and the tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, that his reputation among musicians was ironclad. And his legacy includes a formative imprint on some leading players of the next wave, including the drummer Karriem Riggins and the bassist Derrick Hodge, who were in one of his trios. The pianist Robert Glasper once recorded an original ballad called “One for ’Grew,” paying homage to a primary influence. On Monday, another prominent pianist, Geoffrey Keezer, attested on Twitter that seeing Mr. Miller one evening in 1986 was “what made me want to be a piano player professionally.”

In the performance from the At Yoshi’s 2004 double CD that forms the sound track for this video tribute to him, Mulgrew has cleverly adopted Comes Love to the arrangement Ahmad Jamal used on Poinciana from his At The Pershing Room Argo LP, one of the most successful Jazz recordings ever issued.

The insistent rhythm is formed by Karriem Riggins use of mallets on the drum set’s tom toms and the insistent accent played by the high hat on the 2nd and 4thbeat of each measure.

On the original version, instead of the usual “clicking” sound made by stepping on the high hat’s cymbals to close them, Ahmad’s drummer, Vernel Fournier, played the high hat cymbals open [barely touching them together] creating more of a “chinging” sound to simulate finger cymbals.

You can hear this effect in a more pronounced manner as played by Karriem at 4:21 minutes of Mulgrew’s version.





          The Clarke Boland Big Band is "All Smiles"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


Georges Paczynski, the author of the immensely important, Une Histoire de la Batterie de Jazz, which won the “Prix Charles Delauney 2000,” offered this succinct, background information about the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band:

“The C.B.B.B. - The Clarke Boland Big Band - was formed in 1962 through the efforts of Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke. The pianist and the drummer wanted lo form a European orchestra whose sound would be instantly recognizable.

After recording in Cologne on May 18 and 19, 1961. with a smaller group - Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland (The Golden Eight) - the two leaders decided to put together a bigger band, and on December 13. 1961, the recording of Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland ("Jazz is Universal") took place. Among the thirteen musicians were the future mainstays of the band: the American trumpeter Benny Bailey, the English alto sax player Derek Humble, and the trombone player from Sweden, Aake Persson. After the success of this disc, the decision was made to increase the band even further; on January 25. 26 and 27. 1963 the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band recorded in Cologne with 21 musicians. Throughout its career, the band never included less than 12 nationalities.

The personalities of the two leaders. Kenny and Francy. were directly opposite of those of the legendary big band leaders, iron-fisted megalomaniacs like Buddy Rich or Benny Goodman. Not only did Francy write the arrangements for a given instrument, but in thinking of a particular musician in the band, and composed according to the sound, phrasing and style of the individual. Team spirit reigned in the C.B.B.B. Each musician was aware of his importance in creating a good ensemble sound.

The name of Kenny Clarke is definitively associated with the birth of bop drumming. Following in the footsteps of Jo Jones and Sidney Catlett. it is to him that we owe the fact that still today the rhythm is played on the ride cymbal, with snare drum/bass drum punctuations. Jazz lovers see Kenny primarily as a small group drummer, forgetting that he was also a great big band drummer [check out Kenny’s playing in Dizzy Gillespie’s first big band in the 1940’s].

Drummer/leaders have existed from the earliest times in jazz. After "Papa Jack" Laine. there were Ben Pollack. Chick Webb, Gene Krupa. Buddy Rich, Don Lamond. Mel Lewis... the list (and the beat) goes on. The C.B.B.B. is situated in the grand traditions of the big bands. The basic musical concept was of a rhythmic foundation on which the entire orchestra reposed. Here the role of the drummer is clearly vital; along with the bassist, he plays throughout the piece, and is both accompanist and soloist.

But this key role is not without its disadvantages; the drummer has incomparably less freedom than in a small group. He has to memorize the arrangement, playing strictly what has already been laid down, while still leaving room for improvised fills. Some famous drummers have never succeeded in imposing such discipline on themselves. Others have adapted magnificently to it. Such was the case with Kenny, who was able to play with what I will call "controlled madness". In the big band, he played with a big band drummer's phrasing - unlike, for example. Mel Lewis, who in a big band setting performed with exactly the same vocabulary as in a quartet. ...

Running a big band poses all kinds of difficulties, financial and organizational among others. The C.B.B.B. lasted 11 years, and broke up in 1973. It was in no sense a revolutionary band, but there was within it a fundamental and precious element: an intense love of playing. Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke had the great merit of believing that the formation of a European jazz orchestra was possible, despite the supposedly insurmountable obstacles. They believed... and they were right... and we now reap the benefit.”

Georges overview of the Clarke Boland Big Band - known to its many fans as the CBBB - assumes a new relevance with the CD reissue with enhanced audio quality of one of its later recordings on MPS - The Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band - “ALL SMILES."

ABOUT THIS RECORD - by Stefan Franzen [translated by Martin Cook]

“Without ever making concessions to the trend of the moment, the Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band was the embodiment of the timeless art of the jazz orchestra. Its play was proof positive that a jazz big band compiled of top-flite musicians from both sides of the Atlantic could take off and soar. Regarded as the most important big band outside of the US, this bi-continental orchestra recorded over two dozen albums, close to a third of these under the SABA and MRS labels. Recorded in May, 1968, All Smiles was one of the Bands highpoints. The album exhibits a style that became synonymous with this US-European enterprise: it not only swung it was the perfect vehicle for Bolands sophisticated modern arrangements. Trumpeters Benny Bailey and Idrees Sulieman, saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott, as well as special guest vibraphonist Dave Pike are some of the jazz giants among the soloists in this 17-man combo who turn out some masterly short portraits. From the fleet-footed waltz I’m All Smiles to the bluesy party piece, By Strauss and the sensuous theme from Gloria, the journey continues on through to the furious John Phillip Sousa finale, High School Cadets. Preferring varicolored intricacy over massive walls of sound, The Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band stood up against the constant flow of momentary fads, remaining true to the inventive tradition of the great big bands.”

Original Liner Notes - by Manfred Miller

[Warning these have some syntactical and grammatical challenges for native speakers of English. I decided to represent them in their original translation as I do not speak enough German to attempt my own.]

The one window is open. Hubbub comes up from the street and into the room that is in Cologne's elegant Hohe Strasse/High Street (no thoroughfare!) on the first floor above the branch of some bank. The large, plain writing-table hides itself under paper. Telegrams, notes, contracts, excerpts pile up to several layers. Two of the three phones at least are constantly in operation. On the second table, in a corner, there, too, is scarcely a spot left for an ash-tray. Sheets of notes, a bunch of newspapers, at least ten tape boxes. If a film chose to feature a manager's office like that everybody would laugh at the cliche of overburdening.

The man who hired this room does work hard. It is not that sort of work, however, which the German treasury of proverbs has always rated higher than fun. The man offers his latest product music. Powerfully swinging, precise, intelligent music, music that interests head and feet and everything in between. “All Smiles" is going to be the title of the new Clarke-Boland Big Band album. The man has to shout to make that understood. The two loudspeakers are turned on to the limits of their capacity. The one window is still open...

Gigi Campi never listens to his tapes quietly. An American trombonist, who for some time belonged to the CBBB, once complained. "Funny band. No dynamics", to the protest of his colleague Nat Peck "Yes there are! One is loud, the other is louder..." An exaggerated sentence, no doubt. Yet like every good exaggeration it catches some truth. The CBBB does not play for self-forgetting, absorbed listeners. If it provokes self-forgetfulness, it is that of rhythmical ecstasy. The CBBB does not know the charms of the morbid. This is hopelessly sound and optimistic music. All Smiles.

The Clarke-Boland guys stand for Ellington's fundamental truth: "It don't mean a thing..." It is not by chance that this band plays with two drummers - as if Klook Clarke alone were not a deuce of a swinger. Once his near namemate Kenny Clare acted as a substitute for Clarke who was prevented from making a date. The Clarke indemnification thrilled the band, he was invited to the next session. Klook personally persuaded the English studio musician to become a constant member with the CBBB - as a percussionist.

"Then there was one number", Clare reports, "a Turkish march thing on which I played snare drum. On the playback it sounded pretty good together, just like one drummer. There were some talks. The next time would I bring my drums along, too? Let's see, if it works with both of us playing together. It worked."

Indeed, Clarke and Clare together play like one musician; only that one musician alone could never realise all they play together. Clare: "There are many who would like to get that springy kind of beat Klook gets. I would, too. When I'm with him I can play that way without even thinking about it. As soon as I'm away from him I can't do it anymore. Strange. I have yet to figure it out." Whatsoever may be the key to this secret - the result is a fabulous co-ordination of the two drummers. The first piece - LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE - is an example of this. The fills Klook on the snare drum (for stereo listeners left channel) and Clare on the bass drum do in concert seem as if sprung up from one and the same feeling; and a swinging feeling into the bargain.

It would be wrong, however, to list the CBBB simply under the rubric "powerhouse.” The co-leader, arranger, and pianist Francy Boland has too many ideas for that. You will never catch upon Boland copying simple riffs nor - as the legend goes - exercising. SWEET AND LOVELY forces out of the standard melody continually fresh versions, new harmonic nuances and shades of sound, variations in a strict sense (into which Johnny Griffin excellently joins with a concentrated solo citing motives from the theme once and again): that is - also - an intellectual delight. As the British musical journalist Kenny Graham noted, Francy Boland does not care for trends. Harmonically scored choruses for the reed section have become rare in jazz. Yet Francy dedicates an entire number to the saxophones and with numbers such as YOU STEPPED OUT OF A DREAM, GET OUT OF TOWN and WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE shows what other arrangers do not care to miss.

Certainly who besides Boland disposes of such a reed section? The musicians of the CBBB do not know a comparison to Derek Humble's lead alto that is relaxed and vigorous at once, and ever riding the tip of the beat wave - they give a tired shrug even to the most renowned names. Each of the three tenor saxophonists takes a fine solo - "Li'l Giant" Griffin justifies his nickname time and again. Ronnie Scott blows a virile and straight solo in Gershwin's homage to the king of waltz BY STRAUSS. Tony Coe tells of Dame GLORIA'S merits with rhapsodic vehemence (,,a masterpiece", says Gigi Campi): and Sahib Shihab, who in the Barbara-Streisand-title I'M ALL SMILES solos on flute, is “the outstanding baritone saxophonist of modern jazz" according to Joachim Ernst Berendt. Each of the five reed men is himself a star with a distinguished style of his own, and yet jointly they make up a homogenous and disciplined section. Whosoever generated the rumour that precision and musical temperament were exclusive to one another; he has to be refuted by these five musicians.

And the same applies to the other sections. Benny Bailey, the brilliant, willful lead trumpeter, blows the delicately musical flugelhorn solo in I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU. Cole Porter's GET OUT OF TOWN is meant for Jimmy Deuchar's elegant trumpet and for Ake Persson's powerful trombone-Idrees Sulieman, who in the Clarke-Boland combos mostly comes out with untamed attacca and splendid bop phrases, shows off a different side now: a simple melodic lead and a warm tone in LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE and in the standard ballad of WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE, from which he chooses the first few bars to set out a well-controlled improvisation that does not waste a note.

To those who are still in the dark the Sousa-march HIGH SCHOOL CADETS tells what is the matter with the CBBB. That drives on straight away like - well, no: a steam roller is not likely to go so easily at 250 km/h. You had better not try to sit still to these pieces: Let's face the music and dance. Still one thing to tell you: perhaps you really ought to shut that window now.”

TO EVERY AGE ITS SOUND by Dirk Sommer, reissue producer [Translated by Martin Cook]

Yes, we have worked on the sound of the music that was stored on tapes, some of which are over 40 years old, before they were transferred to the lacquers that are used for the vinyl record production. In the music business this is commonly known as remastering. However, it says nothing about how intensively and with what a sense of purpose mastering engineer Christoph Stickel and I have worked on modifying and improving the sound of the original tapes. Of course as with any LP that appears in the triple-a-series, all the procedures took place using only the finest analogue equipment. As the headline - modeled after the Vienna Secession movement's motto: 'to every age its art' - already indicates, every period has its own typical sound esthetic. We felt that fitting the MPS records to the way recordings sound today would be a sort of sacrilege. As a result, we have simply redressed a couple of traces of aging as well as small inconsistencies in the sound that, because of the technological limitations of that time, were not optimally dealt with on the original recordings. So enjoy some of the most exciting jazz albums of the 1970's and 80's the way they originally sounded - despite or because of our remasterings!”

The following video features the CBBB on Get Out of Town:



          Heart Roasters   
Is it possible to be too serious about coffee?  The first time I visited this roastery and cafe located at 2211 East Burnside, I observed one of the staff doing a pour-over.  She had a look on her face not unlike a lab technician extracting a newly discovered cancer cure from a DNA helix.  She spent what seemed like an eternity oh-so-slowly pouring hot water over perfectly ground and measured coffee.  When the pour-over was finished, she deeply inhaled the resulting coffee's aroma.  Then she walked away and came back a minute later to once again inhale with zen-like focus.  Another minute passed, and she inhaled again.  I never saw her take a drink.  Maybe she never did.

All that seriousness apparently pays off, because Heart makes really good coffee.  And the space they offer for drinking it will appeal to those who favor a clean retro-modern aesthetic.  It's a bit hard to describe, but their custom colored (and gorgeous) espresso machine offers some clues:


The baristas take their time getting the best out of this machine, which features gauges and paddles for each group to precisely control pressure and water flow.

Not all of the machines make coffee at Heart.  They also have a 1970's stereo with real speakers playing interesting music at listening (rather than background) volume.  There's even a turntable, but it seems to be used mostly as a place to rest iPods.
  
If you order an espresso, you will have your choice of a couple single origin beans.  The Kenyan I had on a recent visit was deep and raisiny.  A double shot is $3, which seems at the north end of reasonable, and looks something like this:


It will be delicious, and the perfect thing to sweep the cobwebs from a foggy brain on a rainy afternoon. 

          Belmont Stumptown   
I may as well start out with one of the granddaddies of the craft coffee movement: Stumptown.  A decade or so ago, just when the mergers and acquisitions of the coffee giants seemed on the verge of swallowing the last small coffee purveyor, Stumptown emerged to lead the way to the next level of coffee obsession.  This was, to a large extent, because of a counterintuitive strategy: unlike the big guys, Stumptown offered coffees that were medium roasted, instead of the dark and oily french roasts that were (and are) so popular.  For espresso, that means Stumptown's signature Hairbender blend, which is complex, sweet and without the big bitter hit that tends to mark darker roasts.

On one of the very last gorgeous days of a remarkable Portland summer that stretched into mid-October, I rode over to the the Stumptown at the corner of 33rd and Southeast Belmont.  This was one of the first locations of the company's small empire (it recently added outposts on Manhattan and in Seattle).  As you can see in the photo, the shop's design is minimalist and timeless.
 

The staff was friendly and helpful.  One of them noticed me staring at a wall of 12 ounce bags of single origin coffee beans, and asked me if I needed help deciding what I wanted.  Actually, I was looking for one that cost less than twenty bucks.

They use a La Marzocco Strada to make espresso, which has a saturated grouphead that stabilizes temperatures and allows for consistent controllable results.  The shot was pulled with great care and some ritual (the shop wasn't busy, allowing the barista some leisure).  The resulting setup is shown in the accompanying photo.  The shot, made with Hairbender, was just as delicious as I'd come to expect, with dark thick crema and a final sip that was intensely sweet.

          TRAINSPOTTER: Hell’s Wedding Bells — How the #GuptaLeaks reveal that South Africans paid for the whole damn thing   
The Daily Maverick and amaBhungane can now confirm that the legendary Gupta family nuptials — a four-day wedding binge-fest in Sun City that took place between 29 April and 3 May, 2013 — was paid for in its entirety by money stolen from a Free State dairy project, and laundered through a Gupta shell in Dubai. In all, at least R33.4 million was pissed away in the wedding of Gupta niece Vega, and new nephew-in-law, Aakash. The happy couple were aided and abetted in their endeavours in no small part by the current Mineral Resources Minister, Mosebenzi Zwane, who will be remembered as the most generous wedding underwriter in South African history. And so, we arrive at the understanding that South Africa is an ungainly mash-up between two seventies classics, The Godfather and Invasion of the Body Snatchers — a gangster state in which the inhabitants are zombified agents of a corrupt, festering uber-mind, based not in outer space, but in the United Arab Emirates.

          Αυτοί που είναι πάντα στη θέση τους - Ο Εύζωνας ακίνητος κάτω από τον καυτό ήλιο   
Freepen.gr - Η παραπάνω φωτογραφία του Γιάννη Κέμμου, φωτογράφου - δημοσιογράφου στο newsbeast.gr κάνει το γύρο του διαδικτύου.

Όπως ο κ. Κέμμος μας ενημέρωσε, η φωτογραφία δεν είναι τωρινή, αλλά ορισμένων ετών.

Σε κάθε περίπτωση δε χάνει την αξία της. Έρχεται να μας θυμίσει πως κάποιοι άνθρωποι βρίσκονται πάντα στη θέση τους υπό οποιεσδήποτε συνθήκες.

Οι Εύζωνες που φυλάττουν διαρκώς το μνημείο του Αγνωστού Στρατιώτη ανεξαρτήτου ώρας και συνθηκών, πάντα ανταπεξέρχονται παρά τις δυσκολίες, το βάρος και τις απαιτήσεις.

Θυμίζουν στους περαστικούς αλλά και όσους βρίσκονται μέσα στο Κοινοβούλιο το πως θα έπρεπε να γίνεται η προσέγγιση των πραγμάτων και η αντιμετώπιση των δυσκολιών.

          Εφορία και ΕΦΚΑ ζητούν 4 εκατ. ευρώ από το «Χαμόγελο του Παιδιού»   
Αναδημοσίευση από: newsbeast.gr

Το ποσό των 4 εκατ. ευρώ ζητούν η εφορία και ο ΕΦΚΑ από το «Χαμόγελο του Παιδιού» όπως αποκάλυψε μιλώντας στον ΣΚΑΙ ο Κώστας Γιαννόπουλος.

Ο κ. Γιαννόπουλος υπογράμμισε ότι το «Χαμόγελο του Παιδιού» κόβει κανονικά αποδείξεις και πληρώνει ακόμη και για τα παζάρια που κάνει, ενώ ζήτησε την παρέμβαση του Αλέξη Τσίπρα για να υπάρξει λύση.

Υπογράμμισε πως δεν απευθύνεται στον κόσμο για να στηρίξει το «Χαμόγελο» για αυτά τα χρήματα, ούτε σε κάποιον φιλάνθρωπο.

Όπως είπε τα 4 εκατ. για το 2017 είναι τέλη κυκλοφορίας, ΕΝΦΙΑ, εισφορές και φόροι. Ο κ. Γιαννόπουλος επεσήμανε ταυτόχρονα ότι ο Οργανισμός δεν χρωστάει ούτε ένα ευρώ.

«Μόλις τελείωσα με τον καρκίνο. Το πολέμησα αυτό. Αλλά αυτό δεν μπορώ να το πολεμήσω. Δεν μπορώ να κάνω τον τρελό. Να κάνω απεργία πείνας... Θέλω με ευγένεια, αλλά η ευγένεια δεν πιάνει» είπε.

Thank you so much for this.

          Banks Come Under Fire For Filling In The Payday Loan Gap   
A payday loan is a costly form of credit operating on the fringes of the economy. That's why the target of a new crackdown by federal regulators may surprise you: Instead of a forlorn-looking storefront with a garish neon sign, it's your familiar neighborhood bank. A small but growing number of banks, including some major players, have been offering the equivalent of payday loans, calling them "deposit advances." That is, at least, until bank regulators stepped in Nov. 21 and put new restrictions on the loans. "Many of these loans are taken on a nearly continuous basis," Consumer Financial Protection Bureau representative David Silberman told a Senate panel in July. He and other regulators worry that deposit advances can lead consumers into a cycle of debt. "For far too many consumers, payday and deposit advance loans are traps," Silberman said. "Returning every two weeks to re-borrow the same dollar amounts at a high cost becomes a drag on the financial well-being of consumers already

          Progressives and Their Tom Thumb's Blues   
Taking a brief break from my duties as tour guide for our visiting Spanish guests. Took them yesterday over the mountains to visit the beautiful San Juan Capistrano Mission. I figured Spaniards would like to see a Spanish-built church. We had magnificent weather and a picturesque drive on a winding mountain road. They seemed to like it judging from the hundreds of pictures they took. California has a great and colorful history; it's future? Hmmm . . . maybe not so much.

Anyhow, the Diplowife has taken our guests on a shopping expedition, and I sit alone, supervising the washing machine as it churns away, and listening to Bob Dylan. I had forgotten how good he is. He deserved that Nobel prize. In particular I love his "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues." The music has a Leibner/Stoller "Smokey Joe's Cafe" feel, but the real magic is in the words. Dylan's use of words is akin to that in the poems of Gertrude Stein; he uses them more for their sound than their meaning to tell the story and set the mood. Jazz with words--and the harmonica is great. Brilliant stuff.
When you're lost in the rain in Juarez when it's Easter time, too/
And your gravity fails and negativity don't pull you through/
Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there and they really make a mess outta you/
Now, if you see Saint Annie, please tell her thanks a lot/
I cannot move, my fingers are all in a knot/
I don't have the strength to get up and take another shot/
And my best friend, my doctor, won't even say what it is I've got. 
Sweet Melinda, the peasants call her the goddess of gloom/
She speaks good English and she invites you up into her room/
And you're so kind and careful not to go to her too soon/
And she takes your voice and leaves you howling at the moon...
Gotta love Dylan's description of "Sweet Melinda." It got me thinking about the progressives and their collective melt-down over the past few days and weeks. President Trump has done something remarkable with his tweets, his speeches, his actions, and his general attitude, to wit, he's taken the progressives' voice and left them "howling at the moon."

President Trump has used words as much for setting the mood as for their actual definition. While the progressives try to parse and pick apart those words, the rest of us understand exactly what he's saying, how he's tapping into our own thoughts and letting them gush forth like a wildcat oil well.

He is leaving the progs "howling at the moon." They don't know what else to say about him, what other slanders and libels to heave in his direction, what more fake narratives and news to conjure up. Nothing seems to work. It all boomerangs.

If Trump can keep this up, he will go down as one of the great presidents. He is a revolutionary force. I am more than impressed.

          An Alaskan Speaks about Bear Spray   
Bear spray canisters and holsters
(Udap brand).
A spate of incidents in Alaska (and the Northern Rockies) have some people asking, "Does bear spray work?"

Alaska news-blogger Craig Medred has posted on this repeatedly. The main issue seems to be that minority of black bears (not griz) who turn predator, but grizzlies are always of concern as well.
Twenty-seven-year-old Erin Johnson from Anchorage died June 19 after she and a coworker were attacked by a predatory black bear while doing environmental studies in brushy forest about five miles from the state’s largest underground gold mine. . .
Sean Farley, a bear researcher and wildlife physiologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, emphasized that bear spray has proven hugely effective on charging bears, especially charging grizzlies.

But he noted the physical state of those bears. They charge with eyes wide open, nostrils flaring and often huffing air into their lungs. They are fully exposed to the active ingredient in the spray – oleoresin capsicum, an oily extract from the pepper plant.
Unlike tear gas, which appears to work poorly on bears, capsicum causes more than just irritation to the eyes. Inhaled, it inflames airways making it temporarily harder to breathe and from what is known about research on humans, it might do even more than that.

A charging grizzly is likely to get a big dose of capsicum. That is not necessarily the case for a predatory bear. . . . Farley describes predatory bears as approaching with eyes squinting, mouths shut and  nostrils narrowed. They come in like bears approaching beehives ready to suffer a bit to get the food they want. Their physical preparations would serve to minimize the dose of spray hitting the bear.
The post goes on to talk about risk-assessment: "Statistically, you are orders of magnitude more likely to die in a motor vehicle or boating accident in Alaska than to be attacked by a bear, let alone killed by one." But fear of bears is more primal than fear of motorboats.

And there is speculation on the changing nature of predators world-wide. Read it all.

The big about bears approaching beehives reminded me of when my late brother-in-law was raising hogs on his farm in southeastern Missouri. His was a small operation, maybe a dozen or so at a time, partly for the family and partly for sale.

He told me about one particular hog that would bust through an electric fence. The pig knew that it would get shocked, so it started squealing before it hit the fence, but it still wanted to break through more than it did not want to be shocked. There is no reason why some bear might not take the same attitude toward bear spray.

I still carry it at appropriate times, however. It also works well on overly aggressive dogs. And I see that Medred still carries it too.

          Lantus doesn't agree with me?   

First - I wouldn't consider that "a lot" of Humalog. Each person is different but based on your size/age and amount of Lantus, that seems to be a potentially reasonable number. The amount of Humalog really should be based on how many carbs you eat and how much your BG rises in response to those carbs.

Second - If you think you deal fine with Humalog but only the Lantus is the problem then you may want to consider a pump. Maybe your Doc has a loaner you can use to see if this works better? (Probably not but worth a question.) In the pump of course would only be Humalog which would serve for both your basal and bolus needs. That at least might help to identify for sure whether it is the Lantus causing the problem or not?

          Meter/lancet help   

Hi there! I'm a mom to 3 awesome kids, none of which are diabetic. My littlest (almost 15 months) has been waking up very shaky and irritable lately and after discussing with our dr, we have decided to get a few bg readings to see if she's on the lower end. There seems to be so many different meters and lancets out there, I don't know where to start! I was hoping we could get some recommendations for a lancet that is least painful for little fingers and the most accurate meter. Thank you!

Agree. A number in the 300 range calls for a proactive response, before it gets an opportunity to really spin out of control. This is danger territory, or at least the outskirts of it.

          50M on "Alert When Installed Plugins Have Been Removed From the Plugin Directory"   

I am in total disbelief that there's not either a page that shows which plugins were removed and why WordPress.org removed them, or an email list one can subscribe to so that they receive notifications of plugin removals.

As an example, it seems ridiculous that the only way I found out that the Social Media Feather plugin was removed from the repository (due to them sneaking in all kinds of tracking scripts) was by accident. I went to the repository to download it to load on a new site, and I could not find it. The only way I found out about the issue was by Googling for a few minutes.

At the very least, would it be so hard for the WP.org admins to add a note on the plugins page so that users could know it's been removed and why?

          Trump Made His Supreme Court Pick. Now What? 5 Steps To Confirmation   
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hUYlh2MTDs President Trump has made his pick to fill the ninth seat on the Supreme Court. So now what? Trump's pick of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat vacated by the death of Antonin Scalia sets in motion a confirmation process that is expected to drag out for at least two to three months, if not longer. Republicans say the duration of what is expected to be a bitter partisan fight will depend entirely on how obstructionist Democrats choose to be. Democrats say the timing depends on how reasonable, or "mainstream," Trump's pick is. Gorsuch has sterling legal credentials, but Democrats are already picking apart some of his more controversial decisions and promising a fight. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has said he expects the new justice to be sworn in sometime in April. But that's if everything goes smoothly. Two questions will determine the pace of the process: Will Senate Democrats seek to block the confirmation, and if so,

          RealitySteve.com - My sarcastic, slanted, sophomoric, and skewed view on the world of reality television   
Re: paying vs going dutch I agree with Reality Steve on this one. About 5 years ago, I accepted a date with a guy that I was on the fence about (he seemed like a really nice guy, but I was only mildly attracted to him. Knowing that personality can make a real difference in a person's attractiveness, I gave him a chance and agreed to dinner). He picked the restaurant (a new hot spot where we live in L.A, and very expensive). The food wasn't great, and when the bill arrived, he said "we can split it". My part came to $80. I paid my share and didn't go out with him again (though he asked repeatedly and was genuinely confused when I turned him down). My feeling is - if you expect me to pay half, then at least let me, the woman, pick the restaurant! I'd rather pay $80 at a nice steakhouse and enjoy a good meal than pay for a meal that I don't enjoy. Years later, I ran into him and he told me that I was "the one that got away". All I could think was "of course you're still single, dude. Women aren't exactly swooning over guys that are just "ok looking" and ask you to split the bill". Since then, no one has ever asked me to go dutch. I guess he was just an outlier.

          [uhindsv46]:The Game is Played on a Golf Course - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   
The par five gives the golfer the best chance to score a birdie. A birdie is any score for any given hole that is one stroke below par. This hole also allows the golfer to score and eagle. The eagle is a score produced on a hole which is two under par. Taking this a step further taylormade r11 driver, you would score an albatross if you go three under par on a par five. The ultimate score you could achieve would be to hole out a par five in one shot. This would be a called a condor.
 
Then they run after the ball and without a moment's hesitation they'll hit it again and again and again. They seem to take one quick look in the direction they want to go then hit it. If you want to know the secret to a free- flowing golf swing then here it is.
 
To guard against that happening taylormade r9 fairway wood, when the downswing starts, pretend your upper body is in a cast, and that your torso and arms move as one piece. That way, the arms don't get left behind, and the hands don't move ahead. It's all rotation ping g20 irons, and the momentum that your swing builds up on the way down will accelerate the club through the ball.
 
Most golf courses adhere to strict playing times on weekends, unless of course you are playing private courses. Because of this the recreational golfer needs to exercise some common sense to keep play going. So it becomes necessary to occasionally be remiss when it comes to the rules. Give yourself a few minutes to locate a lost ball and then just drop another one if you can't find it. If your tee shot goes out-of-bounds don't hit another tee shot.
 
The average golfer should consider using a 90 compression golf ball. The ball will actually fly farther taylormade r9 super tri, assuming you hit it correctly, than one with a higher compression.
 

The game is played on a golf course. Each golf course is different in design. The course is divided into eighteen sections. Each section is called a hole. The various holes are different in length. Each hole is rated as one of three types of par. The three pars are, par three mizuno jpx800 irons, par four and par five. The higher the par callaway diablo octane fairway wood, the longer the hole. The trick is to hole out in the least amount of shots. If you use in five shots on par five hole callaway x-24 hot irons, that is considered par.

          Original Antique KICKAPOO INDIAN OIL bottle, Quack Cure from the 1800's - This is the Real Thing by LastChanceAntiques   

49.99 USD

A 5 1/2" tall aqua-colored cylinder-shaped ORIGINAL antique QUACK MEDICINE bottle, this is the REAL THING, an original hand blown antique Indian Quack Cure bottle dating back all the way back to the 1800's.

The bottle is embossed, "HEALY & BIGELOW'S / KICKAPOO / INDIAN OIL".

This is a hand blown into mold (BIM) bottle, ca. 1800's, it is well over 100 years old.

This bottle is in SUPER NICE condition. It has just a trace of wear and have - from age and use. It ABSOLUTELY has NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc.

Back in the day when this bottle was in circulation, the Native American Indian was looked upon with much mystique. Many early-day patent medicine men used them as a symbol to sell their medicines and suggested that their medicines had secret age-old formulas that had been concocted over the centuries by the Native American. This is one of them, Kickapoo Indian Oil, that supposedly had some kind of miraculous healing powers from the ingredients that were extracted from different roots and herbs that the Native American Indians had used for centuries to treat such things, plus a little Indian spiritism added to the allure. This product was probably bottled by a shyster in some eastern industrial center and was a quack cure concoction composed of little more than a medicinal based liquid with flavoring, a high alcohol content, a few herbs and some flavoring sprigs mixed in, and quite probably laced with a narcotic ingredient so that a user really would feel 'cured'. Then it was promoted as containing some secret ancient Native American healing tonic, or in this instance, oil, and marketed as the golden medical discovery of the century, KICKAPOO INDIAN OIL. And there you have it, this is the real thing, the ultimate antique quack bottle

PLEASE do NOT steal my title, description, items specifics, or pictures, etc. Not only is it against Etsy POLICY but more importantly, we worked very hard to research and put all of this info together!

          Developers Provide A Guided Tour Around The Anvil   

Crafting has been a staple of MMOs and the Elder Scrolls games for quite some time. The ability to create weapons and armor is both a boon to players who like to suit up before adventuring, or to shrewd homebodies who use their talents to amass small fortunes by selling their wares. A new developer walkthrough shows how blacksmithing works in The Elder Scrolls Online.

Not all crafting stations are created equally in The Elder Scrolls Online, unlike past Elder Scrolls games. Players who want to create particularly powerful gear or items in a set will have to discover special stations hidden deep within ruins. As the video shows, these ruins are often protected by fierce beasts and other hazards. Once inside, smiths can tackle these specialized pieces of equipment. Skilled characters have a greater chance of getting the most from their creations, though lower-level talents can give it a shot  – while running the risk of ruining their creation in the process.

For more information on the game, including our hands-on impressions, read our preview. Look for The Elder Scrolls Online on PC and Mac on April 4, and on the PS4 and Xbox One in June.

          You Can Become A Werewolf In The Elder Scrolls Online   

With Halloween approaching, the team at Zenimax Online has revealed new information about one of Tamriel’s most terrifying creatures. Werewolves will be present in The Elder Scrolls Online, and players will even risk contracting Sanies Lupines, the disease which causes the affliction.

The team has shared some concept art (above) and a screenshot of what the beasts will look like in-game. We also have learned that those afflicted will have a full transformation animation, drawing inspiration from film scenes, but with a healthy dose of Elder Scrolls flavor.

The information also teases that there might be PvP elements that come into play as players reveal themselves to be werewolves. “We want you to be able to launch yourself into a frenzied killing spree and feel the uncontrollable strength granted to you by the transformation,” the team writes. “As you can imagine, witnessing a werewolf reveal its true form is disturbing, and it’s certainly an event that will strike fear into those who happen to observe it.”

Werewolves will have their own skill line, so players can expect to get a full experience as a lycanthrope should they be turned. The team went so far as to reference video of animals feasting on prey and used a mixture of human and beastial noises to give the werewolf its own audio profile.

The Elder Scrolls Online is slated for a 2014 release on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can read an extensive preview from Gamescom to learn more about how the team at Zenimax Online is adapting the series to an MMO format.

          A Two Hour Journal Of Bethesda's MMORPG   

The MMORPG genre and The Elder Scrolls series are known for being engrossing time sinks. Players pour hours into these worlds and still feel like they hardly scratched the surface. Bethesda is combining both game types with The Elder Scrolls Online, potentially creating an even bigger threat to fantasy fans’ calendars (and wallets). I played two hours of Zenimax Online Studio's ambitious title at a Gamescom 2013 preview event in Cologne, Germany. The time I spent exploring Bleakrock Village and clearing bandits from a mine flew by, so I kept a detailed journal to archive my experience.

9:00 a.m.

Bethesda representatives sit us down at our computer stations, explain the basics of character customization and skill distribution, then set us loose.

9:09 a.m.

I begin by selecting a male Dark Elf and am dropped into Bleakrock Village, an island off the coast of Skyrim. I’m a Templar, which is a precursor to the Dawnguard featured in The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim’s post-launch DLC. A Bethesda employee helps me with the skill point distribution system. I drop a point into my combat skills, acquiring Puncturing Strikes, which allows me to attack several enemies in front of me at once. Attacks like these can be leveled up, independent of your character level, allowing players more progression without the regular old grind. I start off with a quest to commander Rana.

9:18 a.m.

I encounter a woman preaching at a statue about Rana. She claims Rana is risking people’s lives. I continue to explore the snowy Nord village and talk to a Denskar Earth-Turner, a dairy farmer that tells me he moved to this village to start a new life.

9:22 a.m.

I find commander Rana, who needs my help warning the townsfolk. She believes an invasion ship is on the way. She tells me I need to find important Bleakrock citizens at a dragon shrine, a haunted hollow, and an abandoned mine. I decide to start off by killing the bandits inhabiting the mine and send Rana’s compatriot Seyne back to town.

I find a journal in your quarters which reveals Rana’s partner Seyne is also a Dark Elf, and that the commander has been exiled to command a garrison or Nords on Bleakrock. The journal mentions a mysterious body that showed up on the beach, which was curiously dry. A Bethesda employee watches me curiously as I type and read this journal entry simultaneously. I believe they think I’m feverishly copying down the content of the in-game journal.

9:30 a.m.

I test out the first-person swordplay on some unsuspecting deer wandering through the woods. I feel like a monster. The action feels familiar to Skyrim, which helps me settle into the experience more quickly. I find sergeant Seyne outside the mine. She killed one of the bandits and asks me to wear its clothes and sneak into the mine and see what they’re doing down there.

9:35 a.m.

I attempt to sneak into the bandit encampment and blow it. I’m discovered pretty quickly and begin battling. The first guard I kill drops a letter. These bandits have been charged to wrangle up villagers and sell them for supplies. I accept a secondary quest to burn the bandits’ supplies, but the quest marker is far off. I attempt stealth again, but a patrolling sentry spots me. I get ambushed, die, revive on my corpse, and try again. I kill the first sentry I see, take its uniform, and try to be more careful. I’m almost discovered again when the sentry immediately respawns on my location.

9:42 a.m.

I make it to the mine, but the person on the other side of the massive door won’t let me in. I explore the surrounding area for clues. I fight some more bandits, settling into a steady attack, block, attack rhythm familiar to Elder Scroll’s basic combat. I find a contract in a nearby house that reveals the bandits took over the town in order to retrieve magical artifacts from the mine, Hozzin’s Folly. The note warns of traps in the mine, as it used to host old Nord rituals.

9:50 a.m.

I find more clues, including a relic and an old journal. The relic is shattered and has lost its magical potency. The journal reveals that the Nords were performing rituals in the mines to appease their god, but otherwordly creatures called scamps are causing trouble. I knock on the door to the mine, tell the guard I’m there to help take care of the trouble, and I’m let in. The fool immediately flees upon recognizing me as a stranger and is immolated by an old booby trap.

10:00 a.m.

I batter enough bandits to level up. I spend the skill point on the Puncture ability, which allows me to damage my enemies’ armor for a short duration. I blow my cover again and am swarmed by disgruntled miners toiling away. Puncture changes up the way I play quite a bit. I now open up combat by using the armor-weakening move on my foes, then peppering them with regular sword swipes for increased damage.

10:10 a.m.

I find my way into the tomb, and I’m prompted to avoid a series of fire traps. The scamps blast me with fire spells as I slowly work my way into the tomb. A swirling, glowing mass of purple and yellow light is in the middle of an improvised ritual chamber. This is a portal to the hellish world of Oblivion, and I have the option to enter. Stepping within I’m prompted to destroy the Unspeakable Sigil. I stare down the mouth of a twisted, red cavern with intimidating red banners hanging from above.

10:16 a.m.

I fight several more scamps. The little fiery goblins like to cast area-of-effect fire spells, but the casting time and telltale ruins give me a moment to step out of the way. I kill the remaining scamps and approach a floating sphere basking in bright light. I click the Unspeakable Sigil and my character is knocked back, sent through a portal, and suddenly outside the mine. A message informs me that I’ve destroyed the strange item. Seargeant Seyne meets me outside. I tell her what happens and she tells me a group called the Covenant is behind it all. She rewards me with a new sword and suggests we head back to speak with Captain Rana.

10:22 a.m.

I return to Bleakrock via a toll-based shrine teleportation system. This luxury cuts my travel time in half, which allows me to warn Rana more quickly to evacuate citizens. Seyne is already there, fervently reading a book near her commander. Rana asks me to start rounding up people to get out safely. Being the upstanding denizen of Tamriel I am, I set out to find the 15 people I need to help evacuate.

10:30 a.m.

I run into a wounded warrior named Hoknir. A beast named Deathclaw has eaten off his foot (though his character model still clearly has the appendage). He wants me to end the beast in his stead. Hoknir lost a slew of gear as he limped away from Deathclaw’s base. He suggests I follow the trail of equipment like breadcrumbs to the fiend’s lair.

10:35 a.m.

I find Hoknir’s arrows and sword on the wait to Deathclaw’s lair. I take out a couple of wolves chewing on a deer carcass. I loot the dead doe’s carcass and use the meat to lure Deathclaw outside. An unremarkable battle ensues that I easily win. I begin questioning Hoknir’s claim to be a lifelong hunter of dangerous beasts. Nevertheless, I take Deathclaw’s talon and head back. Hoknir miraculously rises to his feet and asks me how my hunt went. I exchange the memento for Hoknir’s axe, he limps a few steps towards the road, the dissolves into nothing. My quest tracker indicates I’ve rescued one of the missing townsfolk of Bleakstone. I decide to head back to Bleakstone to see if we can advance the quest without rescuing any more schleps like Hoknir.

10:42 a.m.

Rana gives me a chance to change my mind about abandoning the missing people. I’m still rewarded for rescuing the people that I did. I gladly equip the new pair of pants. The Covenant has arrived, and Rana charges me with cutting a swath through them and lighting a warning beacon to warn the mainland about them. In the meantime, Rana goes to rally the villagers. 

10:49 a.m.

I fight a handful of Covenant troops on my way to the tower. One enemy rogue uses an ability to leap over my head and land behind me, forcing me to turn quickly and block his follow up attack. I encounter an archer with a red, glowing charge shot which can perceptive players can sidestep. I like the simple cues the game displays to telegraph enemy attacks. I climb the tower, light the warning beacon, and am prompted to go talk to Tillrani Snow-Bourne.

10:56 a.m.

A trail of dead villagers leads all the way back to Bleakstone Village. Snow-Bourne is mortally wounded. Between bloody coughs she mentions that the townsfolk must be saved from the spreading fire. She points me towards a well and water buckets, so I get to work. I click on the buckets near the well and make for the closest flaming building. An incendiary mage is blocking barring my route, but the blade Seyne gave me makes short work of him. I use the water bucket on the flaming door and enter. Within I find the dairy farmer cowering in building and lead him out. I set out to put out more fires when I’m informed my two hours is up.

 

Time in Tamriel flies by whether you’re playing a single-player Elder Scrolls game or checking out Bethesda’s new MMO. I haven’t played World of Warcraft for years, and Star Wars: The Old Republic couldn’t hold my attention, but I’m excited to play more of The Elder Scrolls Online. The interesting questlines and familiar combat have kept me engaged so far, and doing it all with friends should make the experience even more exciting. The Elder Scrolls Online hits Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC early next year.

          Vanessa Hudgens Nude Photos Storm: Her Mood - From Crazy to Grateful - National Ledger   
According to reports, there are even more photos (due to surface any day now) that will cause ‘High School Musical’ actress, Vanessa Hudgens even more embarrassment.

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, the new photographs allegedly show Vanessa Hudgens posing cheekily with friends, and one shows Hudgens pictured cuddling up close to one of her friend’s breasts. Other photos show her scantily dressed.

Vanessa Hudgens’ spokesperson has refused to comment.

Since the original naked picture scandal, Vanessa has apologized: “I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me. I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends.”

Meanwhile, ‘Ugly Betty’ actress Vanesa Williams has given her support to the 18-year-old actress, telling People.com: She’s got talent and she’s professional, and those are the things that’ll help her survive in life,” “You know, welcome to the lesson of hard knocks. She got her first big one right now.”

When people think of California, they think of palm trees. They think of convertibles and Coachella and the ever-winding Pacific Coast Highway. They think of 3-foot waves and one hell of a sunset. They think of everything that Mavericks is not.

Mavs might not be cliché California, but there is no denying that it's the king of the coast. The XXL beast showed some fang over the weekend on the first real day of the 2014-2015 big- wave season, and this video shows you everything you need to see in less time than it takes to remember what the actual capital of California is... it's Sacramento, by the way.

          No, You Probably Can't Bend the iPhone 6 Plus. Unless You're a Bodybuilder.   

Direct link to article... [littlegreenfootballs.com]

Apple sold over 10 million iPhones on the first weekend. No idea what percentage of those were iPhone 6 Plus models, but any way you cut it, millions of iPhone 6 Plus devices were sold.

Apple itself on Thursday acknowledged acknowledged that it has received reports of the phone bending. But cases are "extremely rare." Out of the millions of phones sold, Apple said a total of nine customers contacted the company about a bent iPhone 6 Plus.

...

So, yes, the phone can bend. But at least from these "tests," you really have to be trying to bend it in order to do any noticeable damage.

          Should I be concerned about ransomware attacking my Mac?   

Ransomware continues to grow in popularity as a sort of ‘gold rush’ has been underway in the cyber underworld.

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been generated over the past couple of years with one security firm reporting that 64% of the victims they surveyed paid to get their files back.

Enterprising criminals are even posting ‘ready-to-go’ ransomware kits on the underground marketplace known as the ‘dark web’ with offers to split the revenue with users of their code.

The complexity of these attacks continues to grow as the security world and cyber-criminals face off in a high stakes game of ‘cat and mouse’.

The Bad News For Mac Users

All of the high profile ransomware attacks you’ve likely ever heard of have targeted Windows users, but some of the more recent code being made available via the dark web specifically targets all of the versions of the MacOS as well.

Since ransomware takes advantage of the user more than the operating system, there are few technical barriers to creating a Mac specific attack because the point of entry is getting the user to do something they shouldn’t do.

The most common attack vector for Macs so far has been through infected programs that are designed to bypass Apple’s built-in security (Xprotect and Gatekeeper).  These pre-made ransomware packages also claim to be able to bypass detection by at least 50 different anti-virus programs for both Mac and Windows.

The Good News

Unlike many of the Windows ransomware exploits that can compromise users through unpatched back-doors, clever phishing scams as well as rigged downloads, Mac users currently can only be exploited via a rigged download.

Despite the growing popularity of Mac computers, they still only account for roughly 7% of computers worldwide, so they still benefit from ‘security through obscurity’.

To further illustrate the difference in malware focus in general, one security firm puts the number that target Macs at roughly 450,000 while Windows has 23 million known threats.

From a practical standpoint, cyber thieves are always going to focus on the largest opportunity as they’re in it for the money.

Don’t Let Your Guard Down

Having said all that, everything is subject to change and having the ‘I have a Mac, so I don’t have to worry’ attitude is a bit misguided – there’s a reason why Apple stopped running the ‘we don’t get PC viruses’ commercials back in 2012.

Making sure you only get programs and apps from reputable sources, install the updates when Apple alerts you and keeping all your other Internet tools, such as your browser, Java and Adobe programs updated are important ongoing tasks.

Every computer user should also have a solid backup process - using an automated online backup service such as Carbonite (https://goo.gl/XKum9f) provides an extra layer of security that will save the day whether it’s ransomware, viruses, fire, flood or theft.

Cyber criminals know that Mac computers are more expensive and that Mac owners statistically tend to be on the higher end of the socioeconomic scale, so keep your guard up!

Hi Andrew, Thanks, it's a fantastic instruction! I have to work out for my Company how we can view our 3D Models with HTC Vive. I have no previous knowledge about Virtual Reality or Visualization in MicroStation. Your instructions and videos helped me very much to get my 3D Model running in Unity and viewing with the Vive Headset. But after a lot of testing there is still one big main issue for me. I can't get running the controller in the right way in Unity and VR. At first I even couldn't see the controller. With the latest SteamVR Plugin Update 1.2.2 I at least can see the controller, but the Trigger for Teleporting doesn't work. Nothing happens. I followed exactly your instructions, but it doesn't work. My experiences with Unity are Zero, so I don't know what could be wrong! Do you have any help? Regards Christian
          CUSTO DA MÃO-DE-OBRA DIRETA   



O estabelecimento do preço de venda de um produto depende de informações obtidas  antes do início da produção, tais como: preço da concorrência; demanda pelo produto; autorização para a produção, quando exigida; o tempo de fabrico, custo de matérias primas e produtos secundários, custo de mão-de-obra direta, despesas indiretas de fabricação, custo comercial, administrativo, financeiro e impostos incidentes.

O empresário que aplica um determinado percentual sobre matérias primas ou mercadorias para obtenção do preço de venda está cometendo equívoco que pode resultar em dano significativo à empresa, pois não leva em consideração o tempo: de produção e de estocagem, bem como as despesas indiretas; despesas variáveis de comercialização; impostos incidentes  e a contribuição marginal para formação do lucro.


Admitindo-se que já foram realizados os estudos preliminares, já foi produzido pequena quantidade dos produtos para amostra, medindo o tempo de fabrico de cada um e, já temos os valores dos salários dos empregados que estarão envolvidos na produção, podemos fazer o cálculo do preço de venda, iniciando pela apuração do custo do homem-hora.

O custo homem-hora é o valor dos salários mais encargos dividido pelo número de horas de trabalho num mês.

Conforme legislação atual, por semana o empregado labora 44 horas, as horas adicionais devem ser pagas como extraordinárias. Assim, por mês, as horas de labor, por empregado, são: (44/7X30) =188,57 horas.

O custo do homem-hora médio, considerando que os empregados recebem salários diferentes, é apurado com base no total dos salários com encargos, dividido pelo total de homens-hora, o qual é apurado considerando o número de empregados, no caso seis, pelo número de horas mensais por empregado: (6X188,57) =1.131 homens-hora. O custo do homem-hora médio  é de (9.045,04\1.131)= 7,99, arredondando, R8,00.

Como se pode observar, o FGTS apresenta-se apurado considerando 8% X 1,4, ou seja, acrescido de 40% da multa quando do desligamento do empregado.

 A Previdência corresponde à contribuição do empregador, conforme os percentuais demonstrados, que totalizam 27,8%.

 As férias apresentam-se calculadas à razão de 1/12 avos, acrescidos de 1/3 do abono pecuniário.

O 13º salário é equivalente a 1/12 avos da soma (Salário + FGTS + Prev), isto é, com os encargos. 

O aviso prévio corresponde a  1/24 avos da soma do salário mais o FGTS, admitindo-se a rotatividade do pessoal  a cada dois anos.

O Percentual  71% de encargos apresenta-se apurado da seguinte forma: 9.045,04-5.300,00 = 3.745,04 (valor dos encargos). Opercentual corresponde a 3.745,04/5.300,00X100=70,66%  (71%). 


OBSERVAÇÃO:

Além dos custos acima, devem ser incluídos a alimentação e vales transporte, relativos aos empregados.




  
NOTA:

Os cálculos apresentados são para apuração do Preço de Venda, que deve incluir, todos os gastos, inclusive provisão para contingências, como a multa do FGTS e Aviso Prévio.

Até a próxima, com o cálculo do custo de fabricação.

          Justice Neil Gorsuch Votes 100 Percent Of The Time With Most Conservative Colleague   
By now, we can probably say that Justice Anthony Kennedy is not retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court. The word "probably" is apt because nothing is certain about the plans of this or any other Supreme Court justice when it comes to ending his or her service on the nation's highest court. But this week, the court wrapped up the current term, and Kennedy, who turns 81 in July, seems to have decided to stay on the job — at least for the coming term. There could be a variety of reasons. As an institutional matter, he could well have concluded that there had been enough uncertainty and drama on the court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, and the vacancy that lasted for well over a year with Senate Republicans refusing to even consider President Obama's nominee. Kennedy may also have thought it best to ensure that there is a full complement of nine justices for at least a year. He could even have been put off by President Trump's tweets about the judiciary. But it is unlikely that
          Supreme Court Rules Religious School Can Use Taxpayer Funds For Playground   
Updated at 7 p.m. ET The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that taxpayer-funded grants for playgrounds available to nonprofits under a state program could not be denied to a school run by a church. "The consequence is, in all likelihood, a few extra scraped knees. But the exclusion of Trinity Lutheran from a public benefit for which it is otherwise qualified, solely because it is a church, is odious to our Constitution all the same, and cannot stand," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. By denying a benefit to a church school because of its avowedly religious character, he said, the state is penalizing the free exercise of religions guaranteed by the Constitution. In an apparent attempt to limit the reach of the decision, at least for now, Roberts dropped a footnote declaring that the ruling applied only to discrimination for playground resurfacing, and that "we do not address religious uses of funding or other forms of discrimination." Joining the decision in full were

Nothing but bones

Monsters are an exciting thing to see in a movie.  They are not so thrilling in your application architecture.  I recently came up with (or at least I think I came up with) a term for architectures that are put together with mismatching parts and in ways the software gods never intended: Frankenstein Architectures.  A co-worker then evolved that to Frankentechture.

Of course the designer of a framework or an application platform can’t envision every possible use of their creation.  How do you know then when you are just using it in a new and inventive way and when you are creating a Frankenstein monster?  Read the documentation of the author’s intent, see where it performs best and where the maintenance story is the best and then don’t stray far from those boundaries.

Another thing to think about is if you are using patterns just because you read them in a book and it sounded good?  Are you adding them to the application just because you saw them at the latest conference?  Are you spending days and weeks finding ways to get around the limitations of pattern? Do your developers require a 500 level course to make a simple change to your code base?  If you answered yes to any of these then you might have brought a Frankentechture to life.

There is a time and place for adding complex patterns or work around for a limitation in a framework to your solution.  Before you do that though, ask yourself if the problem might be that you are using the wrong toolset or have wrong design pattern for your situation.  If you can identify this as a possible problem early in the development process your can save yourself a lot of grey hair and your company a lot in maintenance costs.

So my call to action is to question every design decision.  Apply the YAGNI principle where ever possible and don’t add complexity before you have a compelling reason to do so.  Choose the architectural components that work well together and best suit your requirements.  If you do this you can assemble a hero instead of a monster.

หลังจากที่ทงบังชินกิยูโน ยุนโฮได้ออกจากกรมในวันที่ 20 เมย.ที่ผ่านมา
เมมเบอร์ของเขาชางมิน มาเจอเขาและได้แบ่งปันความคิดกันและกัน 
ทำให้เห็นว่า ชางมินที่กำลังมีภารกิจในกรมตำรวจจะใช้วันหยุดทั้งหมดเพื่อพบปะกับยุนโฮที่ออกจากกรมเป็นที่เรียบร้อยแล้ว
ทั้งคู่มีเวลาที่สนุกสนานด้วยกันกับเพื่อนสนิทของเขาในวันที่ 22 เมย. และหลังจากนั้นก็แยกตัวไปกันสองคนเงียบๆ
เพื่อคุยกันในเรื่องหลังจากนี้และงานในอนาคต และเรื่องราวอื่นๆ
พวกเขาเหมือนพี่น้องกันจริงๆ เมื่อได้ใช้ชีวิตร่วมกันมากว่า 15 ปี รวมถึงตอนเป็นเด็กฝึกด้วย
ตอนที่พวกเขาต่างคนต่างเข้ากรมอยู่นั้น พวกเขามักจะหาวันที่มาพบกันบ่อยๆจากวันหยุด และดูแลกัน
จากแหล่งข่าว เมื่อตอนที่พวกเขาพบกันวันที่ 23/4 พวกเขาแสดงให้เห็นว่าพวกเขาโตขึ้นแล้ว
โดยจะเห็นได้จากการที่พวกเขาพยายามเติมเต็มส่วนเวลาจนกว่าจะออกจากกรม
ก่อนหน้านี้ ยุนโฮได้กล่าวในการแถลงออกจากกรม 20/4 ว่า
"ชางมินเป็นเม็มเบอร์ที่ผมไว้ใจและเป็นคนสนับสนุนผม เขาจะกลับมาหลังจากที่ตั้งในอย่างหนักในภารกิจของกรมตำรวจ"
"นี่เป็นแค่การเริ่มต้นของ ทงบังชินกิ ช่วยตั้งหน้าตั้งตารอคอยทงบังชินกิที่สมบูรณ์ด้วยนะครับ"
ชางมินจะออกจากกรมในเดือนสิงหาคม และกิจกรรมของทงบังชินกิจะเริ่มหลังจากนั้น

유노윤호-최강창민, 군 휴가도 형을 위해…기사입력2017.04.24 오전 6:58 기사원문 댓글29이미지 원본보기

유노윤호 제대 날 최강창민 휴가15년 지기…“동방신기 이제 시작”
두 멤버의 우정이 끈끈하다.그룹 동방신기의 멤버 유노윤호가 20일 군 복무를 마치고 제대한 뒤 같은 그룹 멤버인 최강창민과 만나 오랜만에 회포를 풀었다. 현재 서울지방경찰청 경찰홍보단에서 복무 중인 최강창민은 유노윤호의 제대일에 맞춰 휴가를 나온 것으로 알려졌다.
두 사람은 22일 오후 서울 강남구 압구정동 모처에서 절친한 친구 등 여럿이 함께 만나 즐거운 시간을 보냈다. 이후 두 사람은 따로 자리를 해 군 생활과 향후 활동 등에 대해 진지하게 이야기를 나누며 제대로 뒤풀이 시간을 가졌다. 이들은 연습생 시절을 포함해 15년이 넘도록 함께 생활해온, 친형제와 다름없는 사이다. 나란히 군 복무를 할 당시에도 휴가를 맞춰 나오기도 하는 등 서로를 각별하게 챙겼다. 두 사람의 한 측근은 23일 “굳이 말을 하지 않아도 통하는 사이”라면서 “군 복무로 생긴 팀 공백을 어떻게 메울 것인지에 관한 고민 등 한층 성숙해진 모습을 보여주려 노력하고 있다”고 밝혔다.앞서 유노윤호는 20일 제대하면서 “(최강)창민은 내게 든든한 멤버이자 지원군이다. 남은 군 복무를 성실히 마치고 돌아올 것이다”면서 “동방신기는 이제부터 시작이니 완전체를 기대해 달라”며 팬들의 단단한 결집을 당부했다. 최강창민이 8월 제대하면서 향후 활동도 더 구체화할 것으로 보인다. 2015년 발표한 스페셜 앨범이 마지막이어서 더 늦지 않을 시기에 동방신기의 새 앨범을 내놓고 팬들과 만날 계획이다. 이정연 기자 annjoy@donga.com -  Copyrights ⓒ 스포츠동아 무단 전재 및 재배포 금지 -

เอาจริงๆ ทำได้ขนาดนี้ก็เพื่อยุนโฮกับชางมินเท่านั้นแหละ คนอื่นไม่พยามขนาดนี้ ...
ไปถึงที่ ก็เจอเก้าอี้วางๆแบบงานบ้านๆมาก มีเวที เก้าอี้เรียงๆกันบนพื้นเยอะๆ มีคนนั่งๆๆอยู่ไม่เต็ม
แต่พอยุนโฮมาเท่านั้นแหละ โอ้โห แฟนคลับพุ่งมางานพังจ้า เก้าอี้หงายเงิบไปหมด นี่กำลังตกใจ เกิดไรขึ้นๆ 555
ก็ยังคงเป็น ยูโนยุนโฮนะ(ถึงเจ้าตัวจะบอกว่าชองยุนโฮก็เถอะ) เล่นกับแฟนโปรมาก
คุยนู่นนั่นนี่สนุกสนาน(ซึ่งไม่รุ้ว่าคุยไร55)ร้องเพลงได้สนุกสนานเหมือนเคยเลย
พอเห็นแล้วก็รู้สึก คิดถึง...(มันยิ่งทวีเวลาได้เจอ) พอคอนจบ อิพรี่ก็พุ่งขึ้นรถทันที รถรอสแตนด์บายข้างๆเวที 555
แล้วความวุ่นวายก็จบลง เดินทางมาแบบ ไม่รู้จะไปทันไม่ทัน นั่งรถผิด เดินผิดทาง รอรถมั่วมาก 55 สุดท้ายก็ทันตอนงานเริ่มพอดี
เสียดายว่าไม่ได้ไปชวงเช้าที่ซ้อมด้วย เหนื่อยแต่ก็คุ้ม ได้เจอยุนโฮแบบที่ไม่ใช่ทงบังชินกิ
เสียดายว่าไม่เคยเจอชางมินในคราบตำรวจ (ปล.จริงๆอยู่ที่ SUM พร้อมน้องเลย แต่คนละชั้น มารู้อีกทีคือ ออกมาแล้ว =_=) ความนกนี้

เพิ่งได้มาอัพเพราะเกิดเหตุการณ์ที่น่าเศร้าเสียใจในเมืองไทย แต่ตอนนั้นคือ...ยังติดอยู่ที่โน่น
ก็เลยไป เพราะอยู่เฉยๆอยู่ว่างๆไม่ได้ หัวใจรู้สึกแหลกสลายมาก

มันแทนกันไม่ได้แต่ก็ดีกว่าอยู่เฉยๆ เพราะถ้าไม่มีอะไรทำ น้ำตาก็จะไหลออกมา
ต้องทำอะไรก็ได้ ไม่ให้คิดถึง...แม้แต่ตอนนั่งรถไฟ ก็น้ำตาไหลตลอด T-T ...อยากให้เป็นแค่ฝันจริงๆ

 เวลาที่คอนเริ่มคือตอน 2 ทุ่มญี่ปุ่น(หกโมงไทย) ซึ่งตอนนั้นพยายามไม่รับข่าวลือใดๆทั้งสิ้น
เป็นคอนที่ตุ่นมาก ใจกระวนกระวาย กลัว ไม่กล้า และได้แต่ภาวนาว่าขอให้ฝันไป
ขออย่าเพิ่งตื่น เข้าไปดูคอนดดยที่ปิดการสื่อสารทั้งหมด ไม่เช็คมือถือใดๆทั้งสิ้น
คนเรา มันหนีความกลัว หนีจากโลกแห่งความจริง มันคืออาการแบบนี้นี่เอง
พูดตามตรงเลยว่า ดูคอนด้วยอารมณ์แบบ ตุ่นๆ สีขุ่นๆ มันตื๊อๆ จำไม่ค่อยได้

คนญี่ปุ่นเค้าไม่อายเลยนะที่จะร้องเพลงตามไลฟ์ฟิล์ม
คือเค้าสนุกไปกับมันจริงๆ โบกแท่งไฟเหมือนดูคอนเสิร์ตสดอยู่จริงๆ เป็นประสบการณ์ใหม่จริงๆ (ปกติเคยดูแต่ไลฟ์สด)

          Countdown Clocks, Morning Cocktails As Former FBI Director Prepares To Testify   
TV networks have deployed countdown clocks. People are tweeting about places to watch and whether they'll offer morning cocktail specials. Congressional aides report that demand for seats inside the Senate hearing room has reached levels not seen for decades. Anticipation is building for testimony from fired FBI Director James Comey, not least in the White House, where the president and his aides worry the telegenic former law enforcement leader could inflict both political and legal wounds. What Comey might say Friends and associates of the former FBI director described Comey as shocked that news of his firing came from a television screen, while he was speaking to agents in California last month. Just three years into a 10-year-term, Comey's associates said he had no inkling he was on the verge of losing his job, especially not while the Bureau was in the middle of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential contest. Comey did, however, have an uneasy feeling about

This is a great time to focus on the completions of projects and some of your goals. Your soul is calling you to consciously direct this energy in a purposeful manner to help you achieve the desired results. Choose today to reclaim your power and take back control of your life and vibrate with power and resonance for your goals.

          Planet X Incoming: We Don't Know What Happened" St. Louis Officials Clueless As Downtown Sinkhole Swallows Car   
Planet X Incoming: We Don't Know What Happened" St. Louis Officials Clueless As Downtown Sinkhole Swallows Car
I can tell you what is happening.  Planet X is inbound and as it gets closer these sinkholes will be all to common.  Do not be surprised to see coastline states sink like a cork.  There was another major one in China the other day too.
SOURCE

In a development that should send a chill down the spine of every citizen of St. Louis  – especially considering the city’s efforts to revitalize its violence-plagued downtown – a sinkhole spontaneously appeared in the city's downtown, swallowing a car that had been parked street side.
And even more concering, city officials say they have no idea how it happened.
Vincent Foggie, of the city's water division, said the hole was missing mounds of dirt that normally support the road's asphalt-topped concrete. He called such voids large enough to swallow a vehicle a rarity in the city.

"We don't know what happened," Foggie said. "I have no idea where the dirt went."



St Louis resident Jordan Westerberg parked his car on sixth street downtown near the railway exchange building on Thursday morning as he and his fiancée headed to an early morning workout at a gym nearby.
When he returned shortly before 7 a.m. local time, his Toyota Camry was nowhere to be found. Westerberg and his fiancée said they figured it had been towed.
Then, they saw a gathering of street workers near their parking space, tipping them off that something wasn’t right. That's when Westerberg, 25, found the vehicle in the gaping hole - about 20 feet (6 meters) deep and 8 to 10 feet (2.5 to 3 meters) across - that took up the entire southbound lane of the street, next to a vacant building expected to feature apartments, office space and retail, according to the Associated Press.

No injuries were reported.

"It's pretty crazy," said Westerberg, who lives in a loft downtown. "We could've been in the car. It's a compact car. It's not like it's heavy."

The city said it wasn’t immediately clear what caused the sinkhole, though an 8-inch, below-ground water main at the site appeared to have been broken for some time, given the amount of erosion.
Now for the real question: How does a water main break in a major city’s downtown without city officials being alerted somehow?
Hopefully the city will refund Westerberg's parking costs, at the very least.

Last week, I commented upon an article written by Fr. Jean-Michel Gleize, SSPX, an English translation of which was published online by the Remnant under the title:
A MAJOR SSPX CLARIFICATION: Towards a Doctrinal Agreement?
In the article, Fr Gleize articulated his objections to any possible agreement with Rome that would result in its canonical regularization apart from “a correction of the Council’s errors.”
Prior to publishing my post, I requested confirmation from my contacts at the SSPX District House here in the U.S. as to whether Fr. Gleize’s statements reflect the official position of the Society itself, or if they stand in contrast to it; i.e., against the position currently held by Bishop Fellay.
Thus far, I’ve received no response, which seems to all but confirm my initial impression that it is the latter and not a “major clarification” from the Society itself.

If anything changes in this regard, I will let you know.



At this, I’d like to take a closer look at certain of the propositions that Fr. Gleize set forth in support of his argument to see just how reasonable they are, or not.
Perhaps the most critical point; the one upon which his entire argument rests, is the following:
“As we have already explained, our goal is for Tradition to recover all of its rights in Rome. This goal is first in our intention…”
I’m not so sure that the primary “goal” of the Society is the conversion of Rome.
Certainly, the conversion of Rome is a goal, but at least insofar as I am aware, the SSPX has never articulated this as its raison d’ê·tre.
On its website under the heading, What is the Society of St. Pius X, we find:
“The Society of St. Pius X is an international priestly society of common life without vows, whose purpose is to train, support, and encourage holy priests so that they may effectively spread the Catholic Faith throughout the world … Together they seek the goal of the priesthood: the glorification of God, the continuation of Our Lord’s redemptive work, the salvation of souls. They accomplish this by fidelity to Christ’s testament, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Indeed, striving for Tradition to recover all of its rights in Rome is intimately related to the Society’s mission, but the bottom line purpose of its existence is the salvation of souls.
This also happens to be the supreme law of the Church and the very reason why the SSPX can legitimately lay claim to supplied jurisdiction.
In support of his position, Fr. Gleize provided the following quote of Archbishop Lefebvre:
“What interests us first of all is to maintain the Catholic Faith. That is our combat. So the canonical question, which is purely exterior and public in the Church, is secondary. What is important is to remain in the Church… in the Church, that is to say in the Catholic Faith of all time and in the true priesthood, and in the true Mass, and in the true sacraments, in the Catechism of all time, with the Bible of all time. That is what interests us. That is what the Church is. To be recognized publicly, that is secondary. So, we mustn’t seek secondary things by losing what is fundamental, what is the primary object of our combat.”
First, let me say that I am not a proponent of proof-texting with quotes lifted from the Archbishop’s various statements (an attempt to play the WWMD card that I wrote about some time ago).
That said, I find this citation rather odd given that it in no way supports Fr. Gleize’s argument.
If, indeed, what interests the Society “first of all is to maintain the Catholic Faith,” including all of the things Archbishop Lefebvre listed, how exactly is regular jurisdiction opposed to it?
Obviously, it is not; that is, not directly so.
Fr. Gleize, however, would argue that it does so indirectly as follows:
“The bad effect [of accepting a canonical recognition] is itself double: firstly, the risk of relatavizing Tradition, which would thenceforward only appear as the particular good and the personal theological preference of the Society of Saint Pius X; secondly the risk of betraying and abandoning this particular good because of the ambient favens haeresim which characterizes the Conciliar Church per se.”
Let’s look at these two risks separately.
Question: To whom would Tradition “appear” as little more than a matter of personal preference as opposed to the Faith of all time?
Answer: The ignorant.
Let’s be honest, there are numerous ignorant persons to whom, thanks to the status quo, the SSPX appears to be rebelling against the Church, and even as “schismatic” and somehow less-than-Catholic.
Is it really the case that one form of ignorance is preferable to the other?
Sorry, I’m not buying it.
The second risk, on the other hand; namely, that of the Society somehow “betraying and abandoning” Tradition deserves consideration.
Until rather recently, I had no reason to question the Society’s resolve. Today, however, I must admit that I am deeply concerned about it.
Let me be clear: I do not believe for a moment that Bishop Fellay will ever allow the SSPX to adopt the modernist mindset of the “Conciliar Church;” e.g., positively arguing in support of the Novus Ordo, ecumenism, religious liberty, inter-religious dialogue, etc.
There is, however, more than one way to betray Tradition, and one of them concerns the failure to condemn blasphemy and heresy for what they truly are – loudly, clearly and plainly.
Ironically, it is thanks to Fr. Gleize and his series of articles presenting the official position of the SPPX on Francis and Amoris Laetitia  that I am no longer convinced that the Society has the resolve to speak with clarity and conviction moving forward.
Unless they do, being regularized would be like going on a bear hunt while leaving the rifle at home.
I have always maintained that the granting of regular jurisdiction to the SSPX is a matter of justice; one that boils down to the fundamental question:
Is the Society of St. Pius X Catholic?
The truth is they are, and Rome has an obligation to acknowledge as much and to treat them accordingly.
While I still believe this, I also believe that it is reasonable to wonder whether or not the Society has the wherewithal to uphold their own obligation to the truth.
In other words, if already the SSPX is treading lightly in the face of the unprecedented danger to souls represented by Amoris Laetitia and its “humble” author, how can anyone be confident that they will do any better if regularized?

Lose The Doctrine and You Will Lose Your Soul - Fr. David Hewko

 


          9/11 Simplified...   
9/11 Simplified...
James Perloff

Yes, Virginia, there really were hijackers on the 9/11 planes—but not the ones we were told

This post is not intended to be taken dogmatically; I do not insist that its conclusions are correct; they are just presented for consideration.
In this post, though they have already been much discussed and debated within alternative media, I’ll address three major components of the 9/11 controversy: (1) what brought down the Twin Towers; (2) what initially struck the Towers; and (3) what happened to the original planes and passengers.
However, there is a valid complaint often voiced in the Truth Movement, which runs like this: “I really don’t care how 9/11 was done and I’m tired of all the infighting about this. What really matters is, we know the government’s story is bogus, so we need to focus on identifying the criminals and bringing them to justice.”



I consider this a very legitimate grievance. But I don’t think we can separate “who” from “how.” When a prosecutor presents his case in a courtroom, he doesn’t name a crime’s perpetrator without describing how the crime was carried out. Nor does he present the jury with the crime’s details and methodology without identifying the suspect(s).
So let’s tackle both how and who, and we’ll start with “who,” because doing so clarifies a lot of “how.”

The Who

What’s wrong with the following math equations?
3 + 3 = 68
98 – 7 = 2
58 X 7 = 35
What’s wrong, of course, are the 8s. Take away the 8s and each equation reads correctly.
I believe that, when it comes to resolving the mystery of how 9/11 was executed, the Truth Movement suffers from a major “8” (in addition to any individual doses of cognitive dissonance that have been deliberately sprinkled in). I believe that “8” is:
9/11 was an inside job.
I believe a far more correct rendering is:
9/11 was an outside job, done by Israeli operatives, but with consent and cooperation at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
To understand this, it may be helpful to compare Israel’s vicious 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. It is well understood that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara fully cooperated, by twice recalling U.S. fighters that the Sixth Fleet had sent to rescue the Liberty, and later by ordering a cover-up. However, at the physical operational level, the attack was carried out by Israelis, not by Americans in an “inside job.”
OK, but what’s the evidence that Israel was behind 9/11? By far the best summary I’ve seen is the WikiSpooks post 9-11/Israel Did It. (Incidentally, as many of my regular readers know, I’m half-Jewish on my father’s side, so knee-jerk charges against me of “anti-Semitism” can be stuffed in the appropriate place.)
A sampling of highlights:
• The five notorious “dancing Israelis” who filmed the Twin Towers’ destruction, after which they celebrated, high-fiving each other and even photographing themselves flicking a lighter against the backdrop of the smoking ruins. They were arrested after driving off in a van whose license number was reported by a neighbor. Later it was revealed that at least two of them were agents of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.
• Michael Chertoff was put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of 9/11, despite his mother having been a Mossad agent, and Chertoff himself reportedly holding dual citizenship in Israel. Chertoff released hundreds of arrested Israelis back to Israel, including the notorious “dancing Israelis.”
• Quoting Wikispooks: “The company that ran airport security at all three airports where the alleged hijackings originated was Huntsleigh USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of ICTS International and owned by Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon —both Israeli Jews.”
• ”Lucky Larry” Silverstein, who became the new owner of the World Trade Center less than two months before the attacks, and earned an insurance payout of nearly $5 billion on his $124 million investment (after missing the disaster due to a fortuitous doctor’s appointment on the morning of 9/11) was such good friends with Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in November 2001: “Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call.”1
• Supported by funds from Israel’s government, Zim Israel Navigational was the world’s ninth largest shipping firm. It had its American headquarters in the World Trade Center—until about two weeks before 9/11. Zim then moved its offices and employees to a new building, claiming rent was cheaper there.
• The 9/11 Commission’s executive director was Philip Zelikow, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen. Why should anyone with sworn loyalty to a foreign nation be entrusted with such a position?
• On 9/11, the chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board was Richard Perle, whom the National Security Agency had caught spying on the U.S. for Israel in 1970.
• On 9/11, employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received messages two hours before the attack, warning them not to be in the World Trade Center.
• Ptech, a software firm linked to Israeli intelligence, had provided vital software being used by the FAA, FBI, and U.S. armed forces on 9/11.
• On 9/11, seated in row 9 of Flight 11 (directly behind “Mohammed Atta”) was Danny Lewin, a former captain in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), and who served in the Sayeret Matkal, which specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, and assassination. Lewin could bench-press 315 pounds and “was trained to kill terrorists with a pen or a credit card, or just his bare hands.”2 In 2000, he had himself photographed in front of panels resembling the Twin Towers, wearing a Swatch Watch whose model name was “Hijacker.” The hour, minute and second hands were all on the “11” and the date was set to the 11th, even though the picture was taken on the 10th.




The odds against all four time indicators being on “11” are more than 20,000 to 1. Times the odds of the watch model being named “Hijacker”: unfathomable.
That’s just a small sampling of the evidence that Israel did 9/11. When police detectives try to solve a murder, among the first questions asked is: Who benefitted from the crime? In 9/11’s case, Middle Eastern Muslims did not benefit—the U.S. has been making war on them for 16 years. America did not benefit—we’re suffering the casualties and trillions in costs from the wars, as well as degradation of our liberties in the name of security. The only beneficiary was Israel—her enemies have been neutralized one by one, courtesy America, in fulfillment of the Greater Israel plan, with Iran reputedly next on the hit list.
That’s the main who; let’s talk about the how.

(1) How were the Twin Towers destroyed?

Within alternative media are three major schools of thought about this. One is nano-thermite, largely advocated by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Another is Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs), whose foremost advocate is Dr. Judy Wood. The third is nuclear devices, which I and a few others support. Let me be clear: I have friends in all three camps, and differing opinions on this matter don’t impede our friendships.
I’ve laid out why I believe the Twin Towers’ collapse was a nuclear event in an extensive blog post. To minimize redundancy, I’ll shrink this to a “top ten” list:

TOP TEN REASONS THE WTC COLLAPSE WAS A NUCLEAR EVENT

1. Thyroid cancer occurs at above-average frequency in 9/11 first responders more than any other type of cancer (see full post for citations). This is a signature of nuclear bombs; they emit iodine-131, which collects in the thyroid, often causing cancer. (This is why some people keep potassium iodide tablets on hand—to protect their thyroid glands in case of a nuclear attack.)
2. World Trade Center dust samples examined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) found Uranium, Strontium, Barium, Thorium, and other products of nuclear fission, in high concentrations that only an atomic blast could explain. Although the Survey avoided calling attention to the significance, William Tahil vetted it in his pioneering 2006 book Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre. (The phrase “ground zero,” incidentally, had only been applied to nuclear detonation sites prior to 9/11.)
3. There was molten steel underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, whose fires kept burning for over three months. Extraordinary heat is yet another signature of a nuclear bomb.
(Note: I’m aware that molten steel was seen at a corner of the South Tower before its collapse; I don’t doubt that pre-planted explosives were in the Towers, probably including the incendiary thermite, but I don’t believe these explosives were what destroyed the WTC. To clarify, each Tower had six basement levels, and the thesis of my full post—which I had excellent assistance with—is that each Tower was destroyed by a suitcase nuke positioned at the lowest point in either building: the services pits beneath elevator 50. This was the only elevator that ran the full length of either Tower, and the only elevator whose service pits were carved into the bedrock beneath the World Trade Center. This location would make the ideal “launching pad” for a nuke, as the bedrock would contain the sideways and downward force of a nuclear explosion, which would follow the path of least resistance up through the shaft. See the full post for diagrams.)
4. The Towers did not simply “fall,” they exploded, throwing chunks of steel weighing multiple tons hundreds of feet. Check, for example, this piece that embedded itself in the American Express Building across the street:

No exotic weapons are needed to explain this. A nuclear bomb is the most powerful explosive known.
5. The Towers’ inner contents were vaporized: no furniture, filing cabinets (except one), computers, or toilets survived. All turned into dust. Even the buildings’ concrete became dust, instead of falling as chunks of debris. The vaporization, of course, included the people inside (whole bodies that were found belonged to people who jumped before the Towers disintegrated). Not only is a nuclear bomb the most powerful explosive known, its blast—unlike conventional explosives—endures for several seconds, enabling it to inflict considerably more damage.
6. At the times of the two Tower “collapses,” seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded enormous off-the-chart spikes consistent with huge explosions.


This shot of the South Tower exploding caught a huge singular upward burst of energy.
7. A nuclear blast explains the damage to the rest of the World Trade Center. Buildings 5 and 7 suffered enormous fires, and building 6 was cratered out. These phenomena could not have begun before the Towers’ destruction; otherwise, videos of the burning Towers would have shown additional smoke plumes, and cameras would have panned to the blazes.
Nuclear blasts originating at the lowest levels of the Twin Towers may provide the answer. Underground the World Trade Center was interconnected by pipes, not only for sewage, but a 3-foot-wide storm water drainage system.
Any building’s place at greatest risk for flooding is its lowest point. For the Twin Towers, this would have been Elevator 50’s service pits. From here flood water would be pumped through pipes to the 36-inch storm drain. Thus atomic blasts here would not only follow the path of least resistance through Elevator 50’s shaft, but through the 36-inch storm water drain, traveling through the underground pipes and shooting up through buildings 5, 6 and 7, igniting them. Falling debris could not have caused the raging internal fires seen in the smaller buildings; edifices outside the World Trade Center (American Express Building, Winter Garden Atrium) were heavily impacted by debris, but they did not catch fire. THEY WERE NOT CONNECTED TO THE WTC’S UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM.
Please see my full post for elaboration and documentation of the above point.
8. On 9/11, New Yorkers fled two terrifying dust clouds that engulfed the area surrounding the WTC. Anyone who watches videos of nuclear bombs detonating will see that they create sprawling ground-level clouds. Although building demolitions also routinely make dust clouds, the 9/11 ones seemed to have had a life of their own.

          “Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.” - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917   
“Certain fashions will be introduced   that will offend Our Lord very much.”   - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917
Free EBOOK.  Recall Our Lady warned the world in 1917!  How much worse is the scandal these days with immodest dress especially in Summer
http://www.fatima.org/essentials/requests/mid.pdf

Summer unfortunately brings with it the height of immodesty, in both men and women.  This is a good time, then, to remember that words of Our Lady of Fatima who warned us that "more souls go to hell for sins of the flesh (i.e. sins against the 6thand 9th Commandments) than for any other reason." Our Lady of Fatima told Jacinta, "Certain fashions will be introduced that will gravely offend My Son." Jacinta also said, “People who serve God should not follow fashions. The Church has no fashions; Our Lord is always the same.”
Shorts, sleeveless tops, slacks on women, mini-skirts, swimwear, bare midriffs, tight and sheer clothing would all fit into this category of immodest fashions. Sadly, few priests warn their flock of the great danger associated with immodesty of dress, that of losing one’s soul for all eternity.  So many girls and young women are growing up today without direction and, like so many misled sheep, are following immoral fashions to the destruction of souls.


The Bible tells us, "In like manner I wish women to be decently dressed, adorning themselves with modesty and dignity, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but with good works, such as become women professing godliness." (1 Tim. 2:9-10)  
The following are various warnings the Catholic Church has given to the faithful, for the protection of their immortal souls.

CHURCH STATEMENTS ON MODESTY OF DRESS
Pope Benedict XV wrote in his encyclical Sacra Propediem on January 6, 1921:
“One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault against Christian modesty. Now it does not suffice to exhibit themselves on public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passion to the Holy Altar, where one receives the Author of Purity.”

On January 12, 1930, the Sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops:
“We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper. Let parents keep their daughters away from public gymnastic games and contests; but, if their daughters are compelled to attend such exhibitions, let them see to it that they are fully and modestly dressed. Let them never permit their daughters to don immodest garb.” 

Pope Pius XII said in 1954:
“Now many girls do not see anything wrong with following certain shameless styles (fashions) like so many sheep. They would surely blush if they could only guess the impressions they make and the feelings they evoke (arouse) in those who see them.” (July 17, 1954



Pope Pius XII seriously admonished Christian mothers: 
“The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts… If a certain kind of dress constitutes a grave and proximate occasion of sin, and endangers the salvation of your soul and others, it is your duty to give it up…  O Christian mothers, if you knew what a future of anxieties and perils, of ill-guarded shame you prepare for your sons and daughters, imprudently getting them accustomed to live scantily dressed and making them lose the sense of modesty, you would be ashamed of yourselves and you would dread the harm you are making of yourselves, the harm which you are causing these children, whom Heaven has entrusted to you to be brought up as Christians.” (Pius XII to Catholic Young Women’s Groups of Italy)



The Canadian bishops in May of 1946 wrote:
“Man himself does not escape from the inclination of exhibiting his flesh: some go in public, stripped to the waist, or in very tight pants or in very scanty bathing suits. They thus commit offenses against the virtue of modesty. They may also be an occasion of sin (in thought or desire) for our neighbor.” 

Cardinal Pla y Daniel, Archbishop of Toledo, Spain, stated in 1959:
“A special danger to morals is represented by public bathing at beaches ... Mixed bathing between men and women, which is nearly always a proximate occasion of sin and a scandal, must be avoided.”

From a 1930 Letter of the Congregation of the Council:
“By virtue of the supreme apostolate which he wields over the Universal Church by Divine Will, our Most Holy Father Pope Pius XI has never ceased to inculcate, both verbally and by his writings, the words of St. Paul (1 Tim. 2:9-10), namely, ‘Women ... adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety ... and professing godliness with good works.’  Very often, when occasion arose, the same Supreme Pontiff condemned emphatically the immodest fashion of dress adopted by Catholic women and girls--which fashion not only offends the dignity of women and against her adornment, but conduces to the temporal ruin of the women and girls, and, what is still worse, to their eternal ruin, miserably dragging down others in their fall. It is not surprising, therefore, that all Bishops and other ordinaries, as is the duty of ministers of Christ, should in their own dioceses have unanimously opposed their depraved licentiousness and promiscuity of manners, often bearing with fortitude the derision and mockery leveled against them for this cause.”

 

From the Plenary Assembly of the Bishops of Brazil:

“Let the priests forcefully insist that women wear clothing which expresses modesty ...
     “Let women, at all times, but especially, as the Apostle Saint Paul teaches, when they are in church, dress with modesty. If they should dare to enter the church immodestly dressed, let them, as Canon Law commands (Canon 1262, par. 2), be judiciously put out and prevented from assisting at any function whatsoever.
     “Let those who are going to receive Holy Communion be decently dressed. Women whose heads are not covered and who are improperly dressed are to be excluded from the Sacrament, as Canon Law directs (Canons 855 & 1262, par. 2).”
St. Padre Pio, the stigmatist priest, who bore the bleeding wounds of Christ on his own body from 1918 until his death in 1968, refused to grant absolution to any woman who did not wear her skirt well below the knee.  He also insisted that women do not wear slacks. (Verified by mail at Padre Pio’s monastery.  Address: Rev. J. P. Martin, San Giovanni Rotondo 71013 FG Italy)

A General Pastoral Directive from 1915 reads: “Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, any and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed.”

St. John Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople and one of the 32 doctors of the Church, said the following regarding women who dress immodestly:   
"You carry your snare everywhere and spread your net in all places.  You allege that you never invited others to sin.  You did not indeed by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment.  And much more effectively than you could by your voice.  When you have made another sin in his heart, how can you be innocent?  Tell me whom does this world condemn?  Whom do the judges in court punish?  Those who drink poison or those who prepare it and administer the fatal potion?  You are more criminal than those who poison the body.  You have given the death-dealing drink.  You murder not the body but the soul, and it is not to enemies do you do this nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity nor provoked by injury.  But you do it out of foolish vanity and pride."  
Unfortunately, today's attire seems to have almost no boundaries. It is a disgrace for Christian women to expose their bodies, which are the temples of the Holy Ghost after baptism. A women who dresses immodestly commits a double sin:  
“You women who profane your bodies have been led by satan to soul destruction.  You expose your bodies not knowing the evil that comes into the minds of the beholder.  Therefore, your sin is twofold for you have led another to fall into sin!”

The Bible tells us: “Know you not that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God: and you are not your own? For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)  Immodest dress is an offense to God and does not glorify God, but rather reduces the Christian woman to an object of lust and mocks the laws of God. Modesty in dress, on the other hand, helps safeguard the virtue of purity and is demanded by the moral law of God.  St. Cyprian writes: 
"Nothing so delights the faithful soul as the healthy consciousness of an unstained modesty. To have vanquished pleasure is the greatest pleasure; nor is there any greater victory than that which is gained over one's desires."

EXODUS II:  Escaping the New World Order (Part TWO)
By:  Eric Gajewski

There are still so many people who are ignorant of the New World Order.  What do I mean when I say a New World Order and what is the Old World Order?  The Old World Order was Christendom.  We will only have true peace in this world once hearts come back to Christ and the Catholic Faith through the Blessed Virgin Mary.  There is NO other path.  A good portion of the world was once unified in Faith in the Catholic religion but over centuries due to heresy Christendom has been broken down.  The Gospel of our Lord has been replaced by Vatican II and a “feel good humanitarianism” which is only paving the way for the False Prophet and Antichrist.  It is void of the true Gospel and Faith.  How do we escape all that which surrounds us today? Whether it be false doctrine or the immoral filth being shoved down our throats.  Let me now continue on in this analysis between the crisis of Moses time and our own.  


Connection between Exodus 4:12 and Luke 21:15. God’s own then were being persecuted as so are we now.  We now have a hierarchy so theologically clueless that they are willing to give real Catholics new labels such as fundamentalist or Pharisaical.  Fortunately, Gods own then had good leadership and we have a hope of the great Pope to come to lead us through this tribulation as Moses once did.  Moses led His people through the Red sea and so will Peter II.  We shall arrive in the Promised Land safely passing through the two pillars of victory The Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Eucharist.  Nevertheless, see how in Exodus 4:12 God is telling Moses not to worry about what to say to the Pharao and persecutor’s.  God is telling His own the same now.  We have not seen anything yet in terms of the great persecution this is still to come leading up to the arrival of Antichrist and during the Great Tribulation.  The Holy Ghost will talk we must simply remain in patience to win our souls.  Faithfulness.

   All pledging their allegiance to the NWO and Antichrist Maitreya


 
The Abomination of Desolation: Maitreya's Image 

Notable traditional catholic apologist Kathleen Keating says Maitreya is Antichrist as well
Exodus 5:1 Let my people go that they might sacrifice.  We now have an attack coming from the highest authorities of the Church on the true Mass.  The contrived New Mass is not Catholic and pertains to the Conciliar Church.  A Conciliar Church which so adamantly stands behind “its cult of man” (FreeMasonry) principles and would even claim those not willing to submit to be heretical.  “The Church will be punished because the majority of Her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until She will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, She will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters.”   St. Nicholas von Flue (15th century)  We have a supposed Pope who doesn’t even believe in a Catholic God now attacking “traditionalist’s” left and right!  When shall we escape?  Perhaps when Catholics turn from the world and begin to see things through the eyes of God.  Those mixing themselves up with the world will find themselves in hell one day and sadly we so many on this path.  Modern “Catholics” seek a happiness which is not from God.  They do not want to embrace their cross like the Saints and thus they follow along in false obedience blindly to Vatican II and its feel good humanitarian gospel.  The Church is going underground but we shall still Sacrifice.  And the churches too will wail with a mighty lamentation, because neither oblation nor incense is attended to, nor a service acceptable to God; but the sanctuaries of the churches will become like a garden-watcher's hut, and the Holy Body and Blood of Christ will not be shown in those days. The public service of God shall be extinguished.”  St. Hippolytus (3rd century)

Exodus 5:2  Who is the Lord that I should listen.  The Jews/Synagogue of Satan want nothing to do with the true God.  They put Him to death and now seek their New World Order who will be headed religiously by the False Prophet, who, thus, takes orders form the Antichrist.  Why should we listen to the Lord they are saying.  For this is not their “god”.  They are building a new world order largely on economics which the post Vatican II popes have supported.  Our supposed very own are in on the game objectively speaking.  This is why so many Catholics refuse to believe we are in an apostasy.  They say God would never allow something like this!  Oh yes He would and its found in Scripture, Tradition and approved Marian revelations!  They too don’t want to listen nor see the truth largely and thus we find ourselves in the endgame.  When Planet X passes and the sign of the son of man is seen up above the Jews and the whole world will see that I AM is coming and that He is in control.  Largely, we are in this mess because Christians take too much pleasure in this world and could truly care less about the work necessary to save their own soul.  It is a poor exchange the temporal now for the everlasting later.

Exodus 6:4 God’s Covenant.  It continues on with His Catholic Church.  We know He is with us and His Church until the very end.  Matthew 16: 18 confirms this.  CERN, the Antichrist, and all the enemies of the Church cannot defeat that which is Divine.  Fatima records this continuation of the Covenant with His people.  “In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph”.  Through, the Blessed Virgin Mary the Church continues on in Faith.  What is interesting to note is that the Church Fathers teach the Jews will convert to Catholici
