          New country classifications by income level: 2017-2018   

Updated country income classifications for the World Bank’s 2018 fiscal year are available here.

The World Bank assigns the world's economies into four income groups — high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low. We base this assignment on GNI per capita calculated using the Atlas method. The units for this measure and for the thresholds is current US Dollars.

At the Bank, these classifications are used to aggregate data for groups of similar countries. The income-category of a country is not one of the factors used that influence lending decisions.

Each year on July 1st, we update the classifications. They change for two reasons:

1. In each country, factors such as income growth, inflation, exchange rates, and population change, influence GNI per capita.

2. To keep the dollar thresholds which separate the classifications fixed in real terms, we adjust them for inflation.

The data for the first adjustment come from estimates of 2016 GNI per capita which are now available. This year, the thresholds have moved down slightly because of low price inflation and the strengthening of the US dollar. Click here for information about how the World Bank classifies countries.

Updated Thresholds

New thresholds are determined at the start of the Bank’s fiscal year in July and remain fixed for 12 months regardless of subsequent revisions to estimates. As of July 1 2017, the new thresholds for classification by income are:

Threshold GNI/Capita (current US$)
Low-income < 1,005
Lower-middle income 1,006 - 3,955
Upper-middle income 3,956 - 12,235
High-income > 12,235

Changes in Classification

The following countries have new income groups:

Country Old group New group
Angola Upper-middle Lower-middle
Croatia High-income Upper-middle
Georgia Upper-middle Lower-middle
Jordan Upper-middle Lower-middle
Nauru High-income Upper-middle
Palau Upper-middle High-income
Samoa Lower-middle Upper-middle
Tonga Lower-middle Upper-middle

The country and lending groups page provides a complete list of economies classified by income, region, and lending status and links to previous years’ classifications. The classification tables include all World Bank members, plus all other economies with populations of more than 30,000. The term country, used interchangeably with economy, does not imply political independence but refers to any territory for which authorities report separate social or economic statistics.

Tables showing 2016 GNI, GNI per capita, GDP, GDP PPP, and Population data are also available as part of the World Bank's Open Data Catalog. Note that these are preliminary estimates and may be revised. For more information, please contact us at data@worldbank.org.


          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.”

          Re: Are Annuities A Worthwhile Retirement Investment?   
We have quite a bit in a Vanguard VA and we invested in it direct (not via 1035) many years ago (other tax-deferred accounts maxed out). It's worked out well for us, and now in retirement we're doing partial 1035 exchanges into immediate annuities to cover expenses, which spreads the tax bite over time (each monthly payment represents part earnings and part non-taxable return of principal). We also don't pay for any riders or "guaranteed income" add-ons.

Assuming a low-cost VA like Vanguard's, the biggest stumbling block in my view is the loss of favorable capital gains treatment on any portion of the sub-accounts invested in equities. That's the trade-off for tax deferral. (The same is true for 401(k)'s and IRA's, though--and tax deferral for a VA extends to year 85).

That's what I was attempting to convey. TCC is full freight. Active / Annuitant employee share under FEHB is rather small by comparison. I've been exploring my health insurance options under an MRA+10 retirement with the annuity delayed to age 62, and considering purchasing from the exchange or obtaining a catastrophic plan with a fully funded HSA for the gap between retiring and the resumption of FEHB at 62. I hope to do better than TCC in the interregnum.


Yes, TCC is full freight and more expensive than the exchange options. But maintaining that connection to the FEHB seems very valuable given the uncertainty surrounding insurance in general and the exchanges in specific. Since my kid needs just self-only coverage, the TCC cost isn't too bad.

One thing I want to understand is whether conversion is available once the 36 months of TCC is over, and whether the premium is comparable.

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!

          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.

          Barn Theatre to Save Music with WE WILL ROCK YOU   

The hilarious futuristic comedy WE WILL ROCK YOU shakes up the Barn stage July 11 - 23. Based on hit songs by the British rock group Queen, prepare to be thoroughly rocked in this magnifico-o-o- o-o- musical fantasy!

WE WILL ROCK YOU tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where globalization is complete and everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. It's up to a young Galileo, (played by 2nd year apprentice Quinn Moran), who hears in his head the ancient words and melodies from the past, and the cynical yet lovable Scaramouche, (played by Barn favorite Samantha Rickard), to take back the music from the evil globalist corporation, Globalsoft.

Ruling the corporation is the Killer Queen, (portrayed by Barn leading lady Penelope Alex), with the help of her very Orwellian police force, headed by Khashoggi (Barn favorite Eric Parker.) Will the Bohemians overcome the Killer Queen's vice grip over the iPlanet? Featuring many of Queen's greatest hits including Play the Game, Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody and the title track. Experience the music of Queen in a majestically, mad musical!

Having been played in 17 countries and on 6 continents, WE WILL ROCK YOU has seen 12 years of consistent West End performances, and has garnered 14 awards, including the Laurence Olivier Award for Most Popular Show in 2011.

Although the project was workshopped in the mid-90s, it wasn't until 2000 that Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen sat down with Ben Elton to construct an original story. The three felt that this interpretation of the songs played perfect homage to the source of the material and the father of theatrical rock: the late, great Freddie Mercury.

Performances for WE WILL ROCK YOU are Tuesday - Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 5:00 pm

July 11 - 23.

WE WILL ROCK YOU is sponsored by Forensic Fluids. American Sign Language interpreted performance on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 sponsored by Eaton.

          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.

          My Ideal Stock Report   
So, if I was going to create my own stock report and put what I wanted in it, this is what it would look like right here:

May 10, 2009 - Sunday Evening

The market had a big turnaround Friday to a higher high for the Dow30 and the SP-500 and clears the path for a continued uptrend. The Nasdaq Composite looks like it is taking a rest as technology stocks have been far ahead of the other indices these past weeks. The financials catapulted the Dow and S&P and these two charts look very strong for more likely gains.

At the same time we have euphoria with bullish market conditions that easily gives profits to the lazy investor we cannot ignore the technical indicators that are giving overbought conditions on a short term basis. The VIX-X, Chicago Board of Options Market Volatility Index is a measure of “fear” and this looks like we should have a short term correction that may start this week. Sentimentrader’s Smart money/dumb money index and Telechart’s T2108 chart shows strong overbought conditions and S&P Oscillator shows mild overbought, Investor’s Intelligence is a slower indicator to develop but confirming other indicators. Remember these are short term indicators and will “reset” themselves once we have a short term correction.

We then would look to see if the market is going to have higher highs to resume this uptrend we have been on since March 10th.

REPEAT FROM Thursday Night: This may be a good time to close long positions on this temporary “pop” as we are seeing many stocks showing topping patterns that were once momentum stocks. We use these “early scouts” as indicators that people are starting to take profits on the high fliers.

As you have been reading in this report the last few days that many stocks are getting dangerous to buy long, remain nimble and set tighter trailing stop losses because it would only take 1-2 days of sharp corrections to give up all the long profits we have made recently. Most long positions in the stock list below are now closed as we move mostly to intraday trading (scalping) tomorrow.

The stocks that have been the hottest runs or what could be called momentum stocks, ASH, CIEN, ARO, BIDU, CLF, MEE (and many others we don’t have listed) are going to correct hardest and it is likely that we see some rebound attempt next week but my hunch is that the market will start breaking down and short opportunities with short swings will be very profitable.

So in technical analysis terms, it is possible that today was a key reversal indicator (short term) and that is my personal hunch. We are going into a transitional period where we have few positions and most will likely be now short. You could play part of your opening short positions tomorrow early and add to them as any bounce in the market occurs.

Note the life insurance stocks had a big move up today against the tide because some insurance companies were listed by the Federal Reserve as passing the stress test and not needing additional funding. The whole sector moved up, PRU, MET, HIG, PFG.


The Oil index moved up 4% today to close at $58.67 and is still shadowing the direction of the indices. Moving averages, MACD, OBV, stochastics and price charges are all starting to turn up on this sector, use XOIL as index.

Intermediate Trade Positions: NGS, Natural Gas Services is showing a nice uptrend along with the natural gas ETF, UNG. For 10 ½ months natural gas has experienced a steep drop and this recent rise in the last 8 days is the most significant of all. It is likely to see a little selling in this sector first before higher advances are made. So the best process is to let it run its current run and then pullback before opening a position.

It is good to see the companion sector of oil moving up as well so monitoring XOIL and other oil and gas stocks like XTO, EOG, COG, GMXR, APA, ATPG, CNQ, and SNP would be good to get a feel of the oil and gas sector.


Swing Trades: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill has more downside but let it rebound up to $80+ before considering opening a small short position.

MEE rebounded Friday but monitor this as a potential swing short trade assuming it does not make a higher high over last Thursday’s high. It looks a little on the weak side so be prepared to open a small short if it doesn’t move above $23.50 tomorrow.

Potential short swings:

ABG, Asburn Automotive is starting to turn over but still needs another spike down tomorrow to confirm a short candidates. This needs a little more time to convince us that it does to go higher highs before shorting.

ADCT, ADC Telecomm looks like a very good short idea that was opened today and is likely going to break down over the next two weeks. Worth a short position tomorrow.

REPEAT: For aggressive traders or very small position: In the next 4 to 6 weeks, look for GM, General Motors to do a reverse split and watch for opportunity to sell short or work with long put options or selling calls short. This won’t happen for some time. They plan to do a 1 for 100 shares reverse split. That will put the stock at $185 at current pricing and reverse splits are desperation attempts to stay listed on the exchange, usually done by deeply troubled companies financially. This last gasp for air strategy rarely works.

Day Traders/Intraday stock ideas: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill swing trade short was covered Friday morning and may give another short opportunity (2nd helping).

MEE, Massey Energy and PCX, Patriot Coal both had excellent scalps, 8.5% for MEE and 11.8% for PCX. Look for a slight pop and a drop but don’t expect for the same big profits as on Friday. These could give both long and short scalps. Intraday trading is pumping out strong profits most every day now and I see that pattern continuing. As usual, look for good intraday trades in GMXR, FSLR, ICE, BLK, CME, BIDU, AMZN, WHR, IPI, POT, MON, MOS, COG, EOG, XTO, AAPL, WFC, JPM, BAC, WFC, JPM, C, and USB or any high volume, high volatility stocks. CSIQ and STP had big short scalps, 9.3% for CSIQ and 10.8% for STP.

Progress Report: We have had numerous requests for the real-time the Trading Room and we will be more aggressive with the programming of this software. Our first programming attempt last summer was abandoned and more capable programmers are on the task now. We will keep you posted but our estimate is mid June if all goes well. The delivery of information and quality of ideas will be very unique-there won’t be anything like this!

Thoughts: Keep steady, calm, decisive, aggressive. Have no fear and no greed. Keep looking at what to be doing next in a calm manner. Don’t focus on the past or beat yourself up what you did or didn’t do or what you should have done. Just keep playing the next shot, which in this business your next shot could be just sitting on the sideline.

If you have been uncomfortable shorting stocks, which most people are, try to learn this technique, it will be a useful tool in the coming years.

When I list several stocks from the same sector, like the housing industry for example, don’t short all of them unless you are well diversified and it represents a small percentage of your total stock account (in that same account).

SWI (SWING): 2-7 days INT: Intermediate term position 8 days to several months. Open Price: price paid on opening long position or price sold on short position. Bold notes on table above represent changes from previous day.
Current positions are highlighted in yellow. Green colored lines are next probable positions to consider. Red, take action or watch closely.
IMPORTANT: The notes in this stock list is how I have been writing notes to myself about stocks for 16 years. They are general guidelines as to how I am approaching a particular stock and conditions may change during the next trading day that may cause a change in opinion before the next evening report is written.
Thoughts: Best odds only, be decisive, aggressive, mentally flexible, stay in position size, don’t overtrade and wait a little longer to buy and wait a little longer to sell. You will find that will make you more money on your trades. Trade what you see, not what you hope for. Intermediate and swing trades are really important to have trailing stop losses set.
Don’t trade unless the setup is there for you, then use the charts to tell you when the odds are heavily in your favor. Don’t force anything to work for you, let the setups develop and then take advantage of that. Be patient. Stay in position sizes without letting any intraday trade represent no more than 10-15% of your total account value. As you build your account, your position size percentage should get smaller and smaller to lower your risk.

Have a great day and I’ll talk to you this tomorrow.

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.
Here’s a video courtesy of local AM radio station KMOX.

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)

Mark of the Beast: New Age Luciferian Initiation 

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.



AGE OF DECEIT* (FULL) Fallen Angels and the New World Order 


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 Catholicism in the end.  Specially over the preaching/finding of the Ark.  Is this not our Lady?  We must pray for the faithless to become of the Faith through Our model of Faith the Blessed Virgin Mary.  It is through her intercession that they shall see clearly in the final analysis.   

Fr. Kramer: Fatima, Church History & Present Crisis  

Exodus 6:6 God delivers.  I touched upon this briefly last installment.  It is not going to be “traditionalists” who save the day for the Church.  No, this crisis is FAR worse than the Arian crisis.  They have their false doctrines in place and a decent number of prelates are truly working for the enemy objectively speaking.  The others just follow in ignorance or in false obedience.  It is going to be God with His mighty Arm which is going to shake this world and deliver us from the enemy.  Make no mistake we still have to do our part in union with the immaculate and Sacred Heart but ultimately Redemption will come once again through the Christ via the Immaculate Heart.  Her mantle covers and His Heart shews forth Fire.  Those who spend little time in prayer are going to have a rude awakening soon as the whole world literally collapses around us.  I prove this daily in my work with all the signs of the end.  To make it through the days ahead you are going to need Faith more greater than the size of a mustard seed.  You are going to need a full tree, therefore, look for those opportunities in your life that God is giving you the opportunity to grow.

          At least 546 Indian Nationals In Pakistani Jails   

At least 546 Indian nationals, including almost 500 fishermen, are languishing in Pakistani jails, as per a list the Pakistan government given over to the Indian envoy today.

The list was given to High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale under the Consular Access Agreement signed between the two nations on May 21, 2008.

The foreign office said the Indian prisoners included “52 civilians and 494 fishermen”.

It said the “step is consistent with the provisions of the Consular Access Agreement”, under which both nations were required to exchange lists of prisoners in each other’s custody twice every year – on January 1 and July 1.

The foreign office said the Indian government will likewise hand over a list of its detainees in India to Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.

As per the rundown Islamabad shared to India on January 1 this year, there were 351 Indian detainees held in Pakistan, including 54 civilians and 297 fishermen.

The foreign office said 219 Indian fishermen were released on January 6 this year and included that Pakistan would release another 77 fishermen and one civilian on July 10.

          PHL14/352: The Impact of Electronic Health Information and Computer-mediated Communication for the Coping Abilities of Cancer Patients   
INTRODUCTION: World wide-based Information services are providing an increasing variety in information concerning practically every aspect of prevention, health promotion and treatment for patients, their families and care providers. For the case of cancer, a well-established information and communication infrastructure for an English speaking audience has been developed over the past years. METHODS: Our work has focused on an extensive literature review, identifying publications on the impact of the use of electronic information and communication platforms of the Internet by cancer patients, their families and care providers. RESULTS: Patients mainly log on to major services to receive background information about their particular disease or general introductions about the nature of cancer. The question of how much patients' ability to access to more information about their disease really effects their quality of life is still open. A randomised controlled trial showed that patients appreciated receiving more written information on cancer, although this did not increase their knowledge about cancer. Besides following their wishes or needs to inform themselves via the WWW, patients use more often email and newsgroup bulletin boards for communication. These bulletin boards also function as screening agencies for cancer news. Questions concerning the treatment of cancer and its effects on the family are reported as the most helpful topics on those lists. The three major dimensions of communication goals in online discussion groups can be identified as follows: a) exchange of information, b) social support and c) personal empowerment. These findings are similar to the communication structures identified for face-to-face groups. However, there are indications for some differences between traditional and virtual self-help (VS): more people are involved in VS; VS is open not only for patients but for their families, care providers as well as for involved professionals; VS is accessible around the clock and from every place. DISCUSSION: At this point of time, we can only estimate the importance of the Internet for health communication and health promotion. However, it appears that the Internet is a large information resource as well as a potential support network for patients and their families. In virtual groups, the distance-intimacy-relation seems to be easier to control. Furthermore, membership is independent from regional circumstances and patients with very rare kinds of cancer are able to find peers. The latter leads to the question if VS is particularly attractive to difficult-to-reach patient groups and if it will enhance their access to important resources such as social support. The process of coping with cancer itself seems to be very well supported by such new non-traditional electronic support networks, as long as they fulfil the functions of a community. Some basic problems, concerning the quality of information and the reliability of medical advice available through email, are not yet solved.

          How Hong Kong's Banks Turned Chinese   
Each morning, a white-shirted army of bankers fills the crosswalks of Hong Kong, stopping and starting in unison to the ubiquitous chirping of the city's crosswalk signals, a sound eerily reminiscent of a Las Vegas slot machine room. Twenty years ago, the traders and account managers crossing these streets were mostly expatriates and local Hong Kongers, and when they arrived to the office, much of their business was done in English. That's changed. "Actually, Hong Kong is shifting its role from Asia financial center to supporting the growth of China now," says William Hon, a trader for Liquidnet, a U.S. equity broker. Hon was born and grew up in Hong Kong, but at the office, he's finding more and more of his colleagues hail from mainland China. "More and more Chinese companies would like to list on the Hong Kong exchange, so they are all in China, and they're talking Mandarin," Hon says. "So they need more fluent Mandarin speakers in Hong Kong, or they hire people from China to work in
          Two victims in critical condition after 25 shot at Little Rock nightclub   
iStock/Thinkstock(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) — Two people are in critical condition after at least 25 people were shot in a nightclub in Little Rock, Arkansas, early Saturday morning, while three others suffered unrelated injuries, police said. The shooting at Power Ultra Lounge in the state’s capital city occurred around 2:30 a.m. CT. Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner said at a Saturday afternoon press conference that two of the injured are listed in critical condition. The wounded, who range in age from 16 to 35 years old, were transported to various hospitals in the area. Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola on Saturday confirmed an earlier report that all the victims are expected to survive. There was no immediate information about suspects, but police said the incident did not appear to be an active shooter or connected to terrorism. Police said there was a dispute during a concert at the nightclub, and an exchange of gunfire occurred. Buckner confirmed Saturday afternoon that multiple individuals fired shots. Buckner estimates that between 20 and...
          Making Cities Smarter With Connected Cars   
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - We live in an age of new mobility, where the landscape of our digital life is expanding and evolving at unprecedented speed. Wireless connectivity has spread from computers and smartphones to cars, homes and cities, and it's simplifying and improving our way of living. The rise of "smart" objects and machines powered by machine-to-machine (M2M) technology has been a huge catalyst for the Internet of Things -- a web of connected objects and devices that communicate with one another to make life easier. The automotive industry is leading the way forward with more than 23 million connected cars on the road today and projections for 152 million by 2020. Connected cars enhance our lives with rich services, including advanced 3D navigation, automatic emergency calling when accidents occur and always-on mobile WiFi. They can automatically exchange information with other smart objects, such as traffic lights, to help reduce road congestion and improve navigation. They can also direct drivers to the nearest open parking spot and turn on the heat and stereo system before arriving home. The possibilities are exciting and limited only by our ability to securely manage wireless service plans for the long life of vehicles and smart city solutions. Until recently, updating connected car systems was costly and time-consuming, requiring a visit to a dealership to change electronic components embedded under the dashboard. Consumers will soon be able to securely update wireless features and even add new vehicles or smart home devices to existing mobile service plans via a mobile device app or website visit. The new "on-demand connectivity" solution makes it much easier to adopt new technology or instantly take advantage of special offers without additional service contracts or monthly invoices. "In an increasingly connected world, it is vital to remove barriers for growth," said Gemalto Vice President Juan Lazcano. "On Demand Connectivity allows people to easily manage their connected devices while helping mobile network operators improve service offerings and customer loyalty. It's a win-win scenario." The best part is Gemalto's solution adds a layer of data security that ensures personal information is protected when service plan updates are made. This allows all of us to trust in the connected cars and smart cities of the future. For more information, visit www.gemalto.com/iot.

          Keiko Kitagawa to be turned into the scapegoat if KimuTaku's HERO flops? (TouSpo)   

1: 声なき声に力を ★@\(^o^)/:2014/06/22(日) 13:05:38.32 ID:???0.net
Actress Keiko Kitagawa (27) will be appearing as the heroine in Fuji TV's new Monday-9 drama HERO which will start on July 14.

Takako Matsu previously played the role of the leading lady in HERO, where Takuya Kimura (41) plays an unorthodox prosecutor, in both the 2001 series and the 2007 movie, but passes on the title to Kitagawa this time around.

"Kimura and Kitagawa have already been together in a Monday-9 drama 4 years ago, in Tsuki no Koibito, so they're already familiar with each other. Kitagawa said that she didn't watch too much TV 13 years ago because she was busy with her high school entrance exam studies, but watched HERO religiously. She's actually happy to be part of this production." - (Fuji TV staff)

But there are also some concerns about this, as her previous project Akumu-chan The Mu-vie was a huge flop.
 "One of the biggest reasons for this is that it got crushed by the mega hit Frozen. Despite all the efforts they put into promoting the movie by casting Momoioro Clover and making Keiko Kitagawa join them in a time-exclusive unit "Kimo-Kuro Z", the movie still didn't do too well. Though you still cannot deny that Frozen had a hand in the results, Kitagawa has now been branded as 'an actress who cannot make people come see her at the movie house'." - (movie industry insider)

Kitagawa has already emerged into a star from her generation of young actresses, and is said that she potentially has 8.3% of ratings with her. But she was at 10.5% a year ago, so there's also this feeling that she's already past her prime.

"Actually, other TV networks and competing agencies are kinda hoping that Kitagawa brings with her that 'bad luck' of her flopped movie when she does HERO." - (showbiz production representative)

And it is also said that this drama with KimuTaku will have bearing on Kitagawa's future.

"Even Kimutaku, Mr. Ratings himself, hasn't been able to get the numbers recently. His drama Ando Lloyd on TBS last year averaged 12.78%. This is a remake of a mega hit drama, so the passing mark will be about 18%." 

And if this drama flops, there's the danger that Kitagawa will be turned into the scapegoat.

"They say that this is the reason why Takako Matsu turned down the role, but it's not a rarity where they blame the actress when KimuTaku and other Johnny's talents dramas have bad ratings. When this doesn't do well, we can already see how people will start saying 'If only Matsu played the role instead...'. Kitagawa's actually been placed in a pretty tight spot."

Will they be able to produce a hit that has the ability to do away with all these doubts and concerns? People will now switch focus to Kitagawa's acting, as well as the drama's ratings.

キムタクも低視聴率ドラマ量産してるんだから。

I don't think that will be the case. KimuTaku's been repeatedly mass-producing dramas with low ratings.

キムタクの視聴率が良かったのって、華麗なる一族あたりが最後? その後は右肩下がりだっけね。
キムタクドラマは数字が良いとキムタクの功績になり
数字が悪いと共演者と脚本のせいにされんだよなぁ。 キムタク以外の出演、スタッフには旨味がないな。

Was Karei naru ichizoku the last KimuTaku drama that had good ratings? Then it just went on a decline from there, right? If KimuTaku's drama ratings are good, it's thanks to KimuTaku. But if the ratings are bad, the co-stars and the screenplay take the stick. There's just nothing good out of this for the cast and the staff, everyone except KimuTaku.

The moment Takako Matsu avoided this already signalled doom for this.
That eccentric and absurd character was good while he was young, but it's so unappealing if the current KimuTaku would still portray it that way.
And another thing, I don't want to see Kitagawa, Yoshitaka, and Kiritani anymore.

松たかこはもう37歳だし恋愛チックな設定はもう無理じゃね?
          GACKT has a ghost writer!? Wife of backing band member exposes that her husband wrote songs for GACKT for JPY 500,000 each   


1: れいおφ ★@\(^o^)/:2014/06/18(水) 01:09:54.95 ID:???0.net
Tax evasion, women issues... GACKT has never been short of scandals. Another will be added to the list, as the current issue of FLASH reports that the wife of his backing band member YOU has exposed that her husband was GACKT's ghost writer.

According to the publication, YOU was GACKT's classmate in college and is his best friend. This was apparently common knowledge among the fans. But it's also said that YOU is currently in the process of getting a divorce from his wife of 10 years.

According to the wife, YOU has been composing the majority of GACKT's songs ever since he went solo. GACKT would write the lyrics at times, or would just let YOU do everything on his own, but all credits go to GACKT.

And upon completion of the tune, YOU would charge GACKT's management office which is handled by his sister, and would get paid approximately \500,000 per song. The article in FLASH has also published the copy of a deposit slip and details of the bank book in its article.

"I don't think GACKT will be able to talk his way out of this one anymore. Due to all of the allegations thrown his way, his scope of activities is now only limited to concerts and the theatrical plays that he produces, as it's gotten quite difficult for him to even make a TV appearance. Even if they do decide to make a sequel of Akumu-chan which was recently adapted for the silver screen, I don't think that he'll be receiving the offer to do it anymore." - (TV staff)

It doesn't seem like GACKT's case will escalate to similar proportions with the recent ghost writer scandal of composer Mamoru Samuragochi, but further speculations continue to come up from this, as YOU's wife has also revealed some private matters about GACKT. YOU and the missus lived together with GACKT in his condo unit and she reveals, "I've seen the actress with whom he was rumored in the tabloids. She was living together with GACKT at one point.".

This actress is assumed to be Yumiko Shaku, who coincidentally updated her blog on the 12th, the day of her birthday, and denied any romantic relationship with GACKT (without mentioning his name). People will be on the lookout as to how things will develop here as well.

It's all probably scripted under the name of "production". Kyosen also said before that Taira Hara was informed of the answers for Quiz Derby in the past. Kinya Aikawa also leaked out that Agnes Chan was informed of the answer beforehand in Naruhodo the World. They probably need to create a character who gets all the answers right on these quiz shows.

This retro clip art of vintage wedding rings I did for my best friend wedding invitation. And it's not just some vintage rings, but those they exchanged on wedding.
Isn't it a nice and romantic idea?


For you I slightly changed it: there are two more vintage wedding ring pictures you can download: two rings without shadow and one isolated ring on white background. You may also use it for your wedding invitation design or other personal project.

          "Spare Parts"    
"Spare Parts"  87" x 87"
I finished this quilt top recently.  It's all made from "orphan" blocks,
(meaning parts that didn't make it into other quilts.) 
It was on my design wall for three solid months, finding it's way to completion.



It all started out as an attempt to use all my orphan blocks that fit into 
 this color range.  
The baskets are from Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran's book,
Collaborate Again.



They seemed to need a border, so I pulled out some sawtooth strips from
a block exchange I participated in years ago.  



What next?  I had some words I'd made from Tonya Ricucci's book,
Word Play Quilts.  
"Moderation" fit the color scheme, but I saved it for another day.  
Besides, the word "moderation" in this mess seemed a little TOO ironic!



I loved those green and white fans all lined up, and the Freddy chickens. 
But something wasn't right.
The fans are extras from my "Eyelashes" quilt. 



So I took them out, and added more spools and simple log cabin blocks.
You can find the spools and basket quilts here.
Better, but...




Still, something was not quite right.
At least I found a home for some of the fans.




I realized it needed a little calming down, so I added solid red.
I had lots of string pieced leaves, cut out years ago, 
and some extra basket handles for the vines.



A couple of weekend road trips, and the leaves were appliqued on.



Now, if I just made it a little bigger, it would fit nicely on a queen size bed.
Ah-hah!  I had lots of leftover blocks from the



Ta da!
And I still have plenty of spare parts leftover for a rainy day.
Good thing.  We're having lots of rainy days around here.

          A trading startup tackling a key problem in the world's most important market has raised $10 million   

Susan Estes OpenDoorA new trading platform focused on hard-to-trade segments of one of the most important markets has raised $10 million from private investors.

OpenDoor Securities will use the funds to improve its connectivity to current customers, according to a statement.

The platform is auction based and is what's called an all-to-all marketplace for off-the-run Treasurys and Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS). In plain English, that means the platform hosts auctions for instruments at a particular time. 

The startup is trying to tackle challenging trading conditions in what is arguably the world's most important market.  The US government bond market makes up around 30% of the fixed-income market, according to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association and American Bankers Association. In a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission last year, they said the Treasury market is  "the most important global benchmark for pricing and hedging spread asset classes and is a key transmission mechanism for US monetary policy."

However, liquidity in the Treasurys market is divided between on-the-run Treasurys, or the most recently issued bonds and therefore the most liquid, and off-the-run bonds. Off-the-run bonds represent 98% of the total outstanding issuance in the US Treasury market, according to OpenDoor, but account for less than a third of average daily trading volume. 

The platform launched April 25, and the firm has seen more than $60 billion in orders placed since then. The firm has matched "multiple billions in US off-the-run Treasuries and TIPS orders with seamless settlement," OpenDoor said in a statement.

NOW WATCH: HENRY BLODGET: High valuations mean low expected returns


          Deutsche Bank is reportedly staring down a $60 million trading loss (DB)   

Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank could be staring down a $60 million loss after a bad bet on inflation, Bloomberg reported Tuesday

The German lender's supervisory board is reportedly investigating whether traders flouted risk limits on derivatives trades tied to US inflation, generating concerns over the strength of the company's risk controls.

Bloomberg reported that the bank does not expect the bad bet to turn around. 

This is the latest in a spate of bad news that has called into question oversight procedures at Deutsche Bank, which was fined nearly $160 million by the Federal Reserve in April after traders violated foreign exchange rules. 

Regulators also hit the company with more than $650 million in fines earlier this year for anti-money laundering failures connected to wealthy Russian clients. 

It's also another blow to Deutsche Bank's fixed-income trading operation. Business Insider reported last week that the bank had unexpectedly pulled an offer to hire a top executive at the last minute. Meanwhile, a number of senior executives have left the business in recent months.

          Chili Potato Hot Dish   

Chili Potato Hot Dish ensures the family gets a nutritious Halloween dinner. It's made completely in the microwave, and if there's any leftover it's excellent warmed up the next day.

**********

Fall was a joy-filled event for our family. It began in September when we started harvesting our own, homegrown fruits and vegetables and ended with Halloween on October 31. We celebrated by bobbing for apples, breaking pinatas in the barn, and often gathering up our neighbors to enjoy hayrides under a breath-taking harvest moon. To my recollection, it was much like a Norman Rockwell scene fresh off the front cover of Saturday Evening Post.

I’ve come to realize that my kids were sheltered from Halloween pranks and shenanigans. Until their teens, they only knew trick or treating as being driven to each neighboring farm. I’d wait in the car while they tiptoed up to the front door, seasonably frightened out of their wits. As they approached the doorstep they’d hear unfamiliar noises in the dark and giggle in weak-kneed terror when an over-grown shrub suddenly grabbed their costume. With their teeth chattering in fear, they’d knock at the door. When it swung open, the kids shouted, “Trick or Treat!”

“Look, Mom, Mrs. Magisos gave me Jack-O-Lantern popcorn balls!” My son, Brian, shouted excitedly when he returned to the car. Like it was an entirely new adventure, at the next house he’d cry, “Mrs. LeVar, made black cat cookies!” The goodies were always different but I took comfort in knowing each neighbor who gave the children treats.

There is one Halloween that remains especially vivid in my memory and that was the time my 6-year-old daughter, Holly, stepped from the school bus and said, “Mom, tonight I want to be a Christmas package for Halloween!”

I was surprised but impressed with her originality. “That’s an unusual costume!” I said. “We’ll climb up in the attic and get some Christmas wrap and ribbon, and put blusher on your cheeks to make...”

“I’m wearing my red tights and I want a giant red bow for the top of my head,” she interrupted. Clearly she was beyond needing my suggestions.

Holly was so inspired at the last minute with her Christmas Package idea that I decided not to dampen her enthusiasm by mentioning her original idea of wearing a wicked witch costume.

We finished tying the giant red bow on top of Holly’s head and she slipped her feet into shiny tap shoes. She looked adorable.

“You could land a part in the Nutcracker Ballet!” I said totally swept away by the simple, but clever costume. Holly beamed and Brian anxiously wiggled about in his green monster costume knowing it was time to join the other creepy creatures of the night.

I was especially glad that I’d planned ahead and prepared my Halloween Chili Potato Hot Dish, which is my own rendition of baked potatoes with chili and cheese. Since the casserole was the kids’ favorite, I was pleased knowing they’d eat a healthy dinner before filling up on sugar-laden treats. We gobbled down the potato chili casserole and rushed out the door.

I started the engine to my nine-passenger Matador while Brian helped Holly climb into the rear of the station wagon. I could hear the rustle of wrapping paper. There was a commotion followed by an exchange of muffled words.

“Mom! Mom!” The shrillness in Brian’s voice rang out from the darkness.

“The package is too big! She doesn’t fit in the car!” Brian yelled.

What were we going to do?

Between Holly’s tears and disappointment, she was swiftly “unwrapped” and the wicked witch costume was revived. For the last time that evening, we slipped out the door and into the car – off to revel in the spooky black night. Happy Halloween!

In its annual report called “Rich States, Poor States,” the American Legislative Exchange Council found that North Dakota is among the best states in implementing “pro-growth” economic policies. 

“This competitive index shows that North Dakota continues to take the right steps to keep taxes low, to support our workforce development and to advance many other important pro-growth policies that enable businesses to thrive and our economy to grow and diversify,” North Dakota Commerce Commissioner Al Anderson said. 

The American Legislative Exchange Council bases its economic competitive index on 15 equally weighted policy variables, including regulatory policies and tax policies. North Dakota’s strong performance included high rankings for low property tax burden, low debt service, effective tax policy and a low income tax burden. 

Utah received the top ranking, followed by North Carolina, North Dakota and Wyoming. Rich States, Poor States can be found at www.alec.org/rsps

          America’s Oil Boom is Sputtering Back to Life One Rig at a Time   
By Business World Online
For the first time in five months, a rig in the Williston Basin, where North Dakota’s Bakken shale formation lies, sputtered back to life and started drilling for crude once again. And then one returned to the Permian Basin, the nation’s biggest oil play, field services contractor Baker Hughes Inc. said Friday.

Shale explorers including EOG Resources Inc. and Pioneer Natural Resources Co. say they’re preparing to bounce back from the deepest and most prolonged slowdown in U.S. oil drilling on record. The country has lost more than half its rigs since October, casualties of a 49% slide in crude prices during the last half of 2014. Futures rallied above $60 a barrel earlier this week, and a sudden return to oil fields would threaten to end this fragile recovery.

“You’re inviting a lot of pent-up supply to come back into the market -- not only do you have people drilling again, but you have this fracklog of over 4,000 uncompleted wells,” Harry Tchilinguirian, the head of commodity markets strategy at BNP Paribas SA in London, said by phone. “And then we’re in a situation where the market could easily go back into the mid- $50’s.”

While rigs are returning to some fields, the total U.S. count has continued to decline, falling 11 this week to a four- year low on Friday. The drilling slowdown won’t reach a real bottom for about another month, James Williams, president of energy consultant WTRG Economics, said by phone from London, Arkansas.

“This is an indicator that we’re nearing the end of the bust,” he said. “What we’re going to see now are mixed signals from the different basins as we near the bottom of the cycle.”

Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc., Devon Energy Corp. and Chesapeake Energy Corp. all lifted their full-year production outlooks this week. EOG said on May 5 that it plans to increase drilling as soon as crude stabilizes around $65 a barrel, while Pioneer has said it is preparing to deploy more rigs as soon as July.

Morgan Stanley said underlying data show drilling is already picking up in some counties within Texas’s Eagle Ford shale formation and the Permian Basin of Texas and New Mexico.

“Prices are triggering activity that could undermine the U.S. recovery, especially in 2016,” Morgan Stanley analysts including Adam Longson said in an April 27 research note.

The U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil for June delivery rose 45 cents on Friday to settle at $59.39 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices advanced 25%in April alone, the biggest monthly gain since May 2009.

The Permian will probably be the first basin to bounce back because it’s home to multiple producing zones stacked on top of each other, allowing drillers to tap oil at different depths with the same well, said David Zusman, managing director at Talara Capital Management, which handles $400 million in energy investments.

“There are multistacked pay zones and sweet spots across the basin that make economic sense,” he said by phone. “There’s more optionality associated with the Permian and more likelihood of completing those wells.”

The U.S. rig count may recover to 1,200 to 1,300 should prices rally past $70 a barrel, Allen Gilmer, chief executive officer of the Austin-based energy data provider Drillinginfo, said by phone on May 1. The total rose for three straight days in late April, he said.

“The service companies have responded very quickly in regards to dropping prices, and it has become very attractive, especially for companies with hedged positions, to come back right now before those hedges fall off,” Gilmer said. “We’re a few weeks from the bottom now. You’ll start seeing it build up.”

          Building a Giant in the Heavy-Equipment Industry   
By Gallup
"To be successful today, you've got to convince customers that you'll take care of them when they're down -- and you've got to walk the walk, you can't just talk it. You've got to prove it time and time again."

So says Ron Offutt, founder of RDO Equipment Co., one of the largest John Deere dealers in North America. He is also the founder of R.D. Offutt Company, the largest potato grower in the U.S.

For more than 45 years, Ron has been building an empire on lifelong relationships with agriculture and construction equipment customers by adhering to three simple principles: maintain a sense of core values, understand your stakeholders' ever-shifting needs and deliver the finest service. His family business grew steadily, got big, went public and then was taken private again, and the equipment side became a $2 billion business.

It all started along the North Dakota-Minnesota border in the metropolitan area of Fargo-Moorhead in 1968. Ron was farming in partnership with his father and renting equipment from a John Deere dealer in Casselton, North Dakota, when the dealer offered him the opportunity to buy the business.

From that initial purchase, Ron steadily acquired John Deere dealerships throughout the upper Midwest. RDO now operates in more than 100 locations across the U.S. and worldwide, with 90% domestic revenue growth over the past five years (13.9% compound annual growth rate) and nearly triple domestic operating income growth. RDO offers a wide array of construction and farming equipment for high-performance companies across the globe.

How did one dealership turn into a giant in the heavy equipment industry? With an intense focus on engaging employees and customers throughout their business.

From Private, to Public, to Private Again

A visit to RDO in late 2014 finds a workforce brimming with excitement about the company's heritage and its future. In the flagship Moorhead location, relics from the past -- classic tractors and other historical machinery -- are on display alongside cutting-edge farming equipment. In a daily storewide meeting, team members discuss the projects they are currently working on and exchange ideas, while managers motivate their employees with goals for that day, week and month.

Employees at the store are quick to say that the company is a "great place to work."

"This is a great industry to be in, and if you're going to be a part of it, we want you to choose us," says Jean Zimmerman, RDO's executive vice president of organizational development.

Zimmerman notes that the company's culture is guided by the principles of servant leadership, radical transparency, personal growth and, above all, trust.

As RDO grew throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, so did the enticement of taking this family-owned business public. In 1997, Ron issued an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. In a booming economy, the decision seemed to be the right one. But almost immediately, things didn't turn out as planned.

"Very quickly I knew that I didn't like the public game, and I don't think my father did either. There was lots and lots of pressure to grow," says Christi Offutt, Ron's daughter and chairwoman and CEO of RDO. "But what I was learning was that the more pressure the team got to meet quarterly expectations, the worse the company was performing. We were moving away from talking about the customer, we were moving away from talking about the culture, and we were spending all of our time talking about meeting analyst expectations to keep the revenues growing."

Amid these frustrations, the board of directors chose Christi to become chief operating officer in 2001. Soon after that, the Offutt family took the company private again, where it has remained ever since. Christi stayed at the helm. Ron characterizes this time as the dividing point between what RDO originally was and what it is today.

"I think there are two cultures in the life of our business: the one that I started, and the one that Christi started," Ron says. "I was able to be successful in the business when I created a culture of tremendous loyalty on behalf of the employees who worked for me. We knew each other's families; we knew each other's personal strengths and weaknesses. As [the company] grew, that culture needed to change for the company to take the next step, which Christi brought to the house."

Shifting From a Transactional Business to a Solutions Provider

In the company's first phase, before Christi took over in 2001, RDO sold much more individual agricultural equipment. Farms were smaller then, and there were more of them.

"When I started, [RDO] was very much a transactional business -- sale by sale, customer by customer," Ron says. "Today it's more about being a solutions provider for your customer and helping that customer solve his or her problem."

In RDO's modern culture, top leaders at the company say they maintain their success internally and externally by adhering to a set of action-oriented core values for business operation. These values include collaborating with employees, building customers for life, creating opportunities and committing to doing what they say and playing to win. RDO prides itself on the principle "There are no secrets here."

"We've instilled and empowered our managers to understand what our core values are and how we operate with our stakeholders so they can make the right decision," says Chris Cooper, an executive vice president at RDO.

Keith Kreps, also an RDO executive vice president, says a culture of creativity and trust exists companywide, which fosters innovation and high levels of employee engagement. "When you don't feel like you're paralyzed by making the wrong decision that could affect your career or affect your job -- as long as you made an educated decision -- you really get people coming out with great ideas and a lot of creativity. They're willing to go out there and 'wow' our other employees and customers," Kreps says.

Toward True Engagement

In 2014, RDO worked with Gallup to move beyond employee satisfaction -- which focuses more on superficial company perks -- to true employee engagement, which is about fostering a deeper sense of connection to one's job and company. Now, 52% of RDO's employees are engaged, with 8.67 engaged employees for every one actively disengaged employee. Organizations that lead the world in employee engagement have 9.1 engaged employees to every disengaged employee, so these are "very encouraging early results," Zimmerman says.

Zimmerman credits these results to initiatives the company implemented over the past several years. Every employee now has an individual learning plan, and RDO spends 15% more on training than comparable-sized organizations. The company offers a 30-month management institute for its leaders. RDO leaders have also integrated engagement into their leadership approach and communication strategy, weaving it into their operations and day-to-day conversations.

"I truly believe that the initiatives we've developed to support our culture along with a strengths-based leadership approach leads to a more engaged workplace culture," Christi says.

Zimmerman agrees, emphasizing that the culture must promote hard work and RDO must be an enjoyable place to work. "We've taken steps of making this a place that attracts and keeps employees and attracts and keeps our customers," he says.

Growing Pains

Because of RDO's persistent growth, the company is experiencing some growing pains. In part, this is the result of the breakneck pace of North Dakota's economy and the various challenges that come with operating in nine U.S. states. Business is booming so much that there are too many jobs and not enough people to fill them.

"We've got well over 2,000 employees, but we have opportunities to continue to grow," Cooper says. "We have close to 200 open positions that we're still trying to fill."

Christi mentions that there is plenty of competition for today's skilled labor pool: "We've recruited from everywhere -- Georgia, Florida, California, Alaska -- it's a continuous challenge."

Amid these challenges, RDO continues to redefine the business of equipment in the 21st century. The company's leaders say RDO is committed to finding cutting-edge solutions for its customers.

"I think you'll see less growth in the size of the machines," Ron says. "What you're going to see is more intelligent equipment, and that will increase productivity for the producer."

This kind of "precision agriculture" may keep RDO at the forefront of offering technological solutions to its customers, and the company sees further growth from its ventures in Russia, Ukraine, Mexico and Australia in the years to come. Already these international partnerships are providing solutions to a wide range of customers, even in troubled hot spots. RDO forecasts $360 million in international revenues in 2015, of which Russia and Ukraine factor into the mix.

Ryan Offutt, Ron's son and Christi's brother, runs RDO's Russia and Ukraine operations. As someone who represents the future of RDO and the path it will take in decades to come, he reflects on how what RDO means to customers in 2015. "We're a big part of our customers' lives, and they're dependent upon on our team members to deliver solutions to them every day," Ryan says. "Having a reliable partner is critical to their success."

          No Bust Seen as Dakota Oil Firms Keep Staff Amid Price Drop    
By Bloomberg Business
A plunge in global energy prices that has put some North Dakota oil rigs in a deep freeze has yet to chill the state’s hiring climate.

By almost any metric -- the jobless rate, payrolls, claims for unemployment benefits -- there is scant evidence to indicate the state at the epicenter of the U.S. shale-oil boom is about to stumble.

With memories still fresh in their minds of how difficult it was to find help, energy-industry employers in the fourth-smallest state by population probably won’t be quick to dismiss staff. Even those people who are let go may find their skills are transferable, filling positions to finish infrastructure projects long-delayed by a worker shortage.
 
“This won’t be a bust,” Harold Hamm, founder and chief executive officer of Continental Resources Inc., the largest leaseholder and producer in the Bakken shale play of North Dakota and Montana, said in a Jan. 28 interview with Bloomberg. “There’s plenty to do.”

At 2.8 percent in December, North Dakota’s jobless rate has been little changed since July and is the lowest of any state in the U.S. It had been as low as 2.5 percent in April, a record in data going back to 1976.

Its payrolls grew by 24,500 workers last year, or 5.4 percent -- the biggest percentage increase of any state.

Payroll Growth

Even over the past six months, when crude oil prices began to slide, payrolls in North Dakota have maintained an above-average rate of growth. Employment was up 2.4 percent from July through December, more than three times the 0.7 percent gain typical for the state over six-month periods during the U.S. economic expansion that ended in December 2007.

Job openings were up 17 percent last month from January 2013, according to data released Wednesday from the state’s labor department. There were 0.5 unemployed North Dakotans per opening in December, the latest month data were available. Vacancies have outnumbered the state’s jobless since June 2011.

Dismissals are also down. In December, 4,912 workers filed applications for unemployment insurance payments, 12.4 percent fewer than in December 2013.

“They want to retain their very best employees, anticipating a return to prior price levels,” said Michael Ziesch, manager of North Dakota’s Labor Market Information Center at the state’s labor department. “Even if things slow down somewhat, a plateauing or soft landing isn’t a bad thing -- it gives some of these jurisdictions a chance to catch their breath a little bit.”

Fewer Rigs

A global oil glut that’s sent prices plummeting for months is testing those North Dakota businesses awaiting a rebound. The number of oil and natural-gas rigs operating in North Dakota as of Jan. 30 was 143, the fewest in more than four years, according to data from Baker Hughes Inc. Still, energy companies are pledging to stay the course.

“We’re going to be training people during this downturn and taking advantage of time to increase the intensity of training,” said Continental Resources’s Hamm.

He said staffing levels in North Dakota haven’t changed and he has no plans to trim his workforce there this year.

West Texas Intermediate for March delivery closed at $53.05 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange on Feb. 3, down from a 2014 high of $107.26 in late June. WTI is up 19 percent from its Jan. 28 close of $44.45, which was the lowest since March 2009.

Tax Break

The drop in oil prices has been severe enough to trigger a self-correcting mechanism that may boost production by April, according to the state’s Department of Mineral Resources. Extraction taxes as of this month will be reduced by statute to 2 percent per barrel from 6.5 percent.

For some oil companies, the price slump could mean employees will transfer from rig operations to other projects.

“The state continues to pump a bunch of money into infrastructure, and those projects have been way behind,” said Andy Peterson, chief executive officer of the Greater North Dakota Chamber, the state’s chamber of commerce. “This will allow the state to catch up on some road building, bridge improvement, sewage plants, water plants, all kinds of things.”

State legislators are considering a $1.1 billion bill that would tap energy-related revenue to fund infrastructure needs in western North Dakota. The Senate passed the measure Jan. 29 by 44 to 2 and the House takes it up this month.

Redirect Workers

Bismarck, North Dakota-based oil producer MDU Resources Group Inc. is one company looking to allocate more workers toward its construction projects.

“In the construction business in the last couple years it’s been very difficult to find enough workers,” said Rick Matteson, the company’s communications director. “And in North Dakota, particularly with all the money that’s been directed toward the Bakken infrastructure growth, there’s just been a lot of work up there.”

In Watford City, where dirt roads connect drilling sites with a new Subway Restaurants sandwich shop and a hotel parking lot packed with rig-workers’ vans, the needs are evident. Other businesses, though, also are upbeat in the face of the oil-price drop.

“There’s always hiring” in this area, said Erin Hammel, general manager of the four-employee Anytime Fitness, which opened about four months ago. “We will of course need some more hands” when demand picks up, she said.

Broad Demand

The demand for services to accommodate the influx of oil workers is far-reaching. In Fargo, on the eastern end of the state opposite the Bakken oil formation in the northwest, the labor market is about as hot as it gets: a 2.2 percent jobless rate in November that was even lower than the state average.

That earned Fargo the No. 2 spot in the “best job markets for 2015” as ranked by ZipRecruiter, an online job-search tool, which analyzed U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

Job Service North Dakota, the state’s labor wing that provides workforce training, has targeted five areas based on priorities outlined by Governor Jack Dalrymple. Of 318 workers trained in program year 2013, a plurality of 117 were preparing for jobs in the health-care industry.

For North Dakota, the challenge is keeping those workers who streamed in to take advantage of oil-industry positions paying better-than-average wages. As labor-market conditions improve in their former states, those “commuter” workers could find themselves being drawn back, said Ziesch, the state labor agency official.

Total Payrolls

At the end of 2014, the state had 476,200 people on non-farm payrolls, up 29 percent from 2009 and almost four times the 8 percent increase in the national workforce over the same period, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

To be sure, Ziesch and his data-watching colleagues project there will be some loss of jobs in the energy industry, though it may not show up for another couple months, when it becomes easier to separate changes induced by the slump in oil prices from the influence of harsh weather, he said.

In the meantime, business owners such as Simon Chan remain upbeat about prospects. The Los Angeles transplant opened Basil, a sushi bar and Asian-fusion restaurant, in North Dakota’s energy-boom capital of Williston in September 2013. He decided to move there based on a tip from a customer after spending seven years in Casper, Wyoming, another oil boomtown.

Chan has a help-wanted sign in the window even after a 15 percent drop-off in business since December that was larger than the typical post-holiday slowdown. He said a couple of workers will leave soon for reasons unrelated to the oil slump, and wants to have replacements ready to maintain a staff of 20 so service and quality don’t suffer.

“Oil is just like stock -- eventually, with time, it’ll go up,” he said.

          The Curious, Stressful Life of a US Military Drone Pilot   
By Jason Keobler for Motherboard
In a hangar at Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota, a 23-year-old soldier named Matthew stands in front of a plane he’s flown dozens, perhaps hundreds of times over Afghanistan, Iraq, perhaps Yemen or the Philippines, even parts of Europe. Except, he’s never physically been over any of those places, and he’s never been inside the plane.
 
Matthew, a drone pilot, has been on the front lines for the last three years without traveling more than 20 minutes from the nearest Walmart. His drone, the Global Hawk, is a surveillance and support plane—it isn’t armed, but it’s flying over many of the same places Predator drones are, and then, really, a few more.
 
“You can’t find a conflict where there’s not a Global Hawk nearby,” Paul Bauman, commander of Matthew's squad, told me.
 
That means there’s plenty of work for Matthew and his fellow pilots, and it also means that on Monday, he could be flying in Iraq near an Islamic State hotspot, Tuesday he could be playing basketball with his friends, and Wednesday he might be in Afghanistan. Thursday, he could be in Syria or Somalia or anywhere, really.
 
In most cases, Matthew or someone else takes control of a Global Hawk that is stationed halfway across the world. In others, he flies the ones located on base—they can fly from here to near the southern tip of South America and back without refueling.
 
Earlier this week, the USAF allowed me to talk to Bauman and several other soldiers involved in the United States' drone support program. Though the interviews were spontaneous and not pre-vetted, my tour of the base was tightly scheduled and tightly controlled.
 
I agreed to use the pilots' first names only in exchange for a look at what is, probably, the world's most extreme office job.
 
“They leave their house, drive three minutes, and walk into a metal box and it’s like walking into central command or Pacific command or another theatre,” Bauman said. “You fly your mission and walk out of the box, and you’re back in North Dakota.”
 
In other words, Matthew and his fellow pilots have no idea what conflict they're going to be involved in, or where that conflict is going to be, until hours before they're scheduled to fly. They are briefed, obviously, and Matthew told me that he "absolutely" knows what country he's flying in at any given moment, but noted that he could work with one team one day and not work with them again for months.
 
“It takes a certain kind of person to say ‘I just had dinner, but I’m ready to go,’” Matthew told me. “I’m in a position where I could do harm to someone on the ground or not provide that support someone needs. Their life is on the line. We take it very seriously, and we come in with our game face on.”
 
Maybe a small part of that seriousness comes from standing next to the Global Hawk, which is far larger and flies at far higher altitudes than the Predator. Though it has no pilot, if you hollowed out the inside, you could throw plenty of people in there; it’s nearly as large as a Boeing 747, and it’s far larger than I had imagined. It’s black and sleek and it can fly halfway around the world on one trip.
 
And most of those missions are flown out of here, in North Dakota. The base, in fact, doesn’t fly any manned missions and hasn’t since 2010. Bauman says that when it became clear drones were the future of the Air Force, the base wanted to stay on the cutting edge and transitioned to flying drones exclusively.
 
At the moment, it’s the only place in the United States where the classic Predator drone, the newer MQ-9 Predator (or “Reaper” drone), and the Global Hawk are all flown.
 
So now, the front lines of the various wars the United States has found itself engaged in extends out to Grand Forks, mentally, at least. What does that mean for people like Matthew and two other drone pilots I spoke to, Ryan and Brad? Both of them said that, well, it's kinda weird that they don't know what conflict they're going to be involved in until just hours beforehand.
 
You come home and have dinner with your wife and family and, well, you can't tell them anything about what happened. 
 
Well, who the hell knows. Just as the military has experimented with the mental health of thousands of troops overseas, it’s now experimenting with the mental health of soldiers on its domestic bases, ones who might be with their spouses and children during the day and engaged in war at night.
 
In fact, a study published last year by the Department of Defense suggested that drone pilots suffer from post traumatic stress disorder in much the same way as soldiers on the ground. An Air Force survey initially found that they experience anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and nine other psychiatric disorders at rates higher than those with other Air Force support roles, but once adjusted for age and other factors, the rates were similar. Other studies are ongoing.
 
“In some ways it’s harder. If you have a tough day—for whatever reason—all that stuff, the mission, is classified,” one former Air National Guard soldier, who helped command a Predator squadron, told me. “So, you come home and have dinner with your wife and family and, well, you can’t tell them anything about what happened.”
 
Ryan said that he’s a “step back” from the front lines because he’s not actually pushing the button to fire a missile. The Predator commander told me that many of those pilots take solace in the fact that they’re merely following flight orders, not making the call to pull the trigger, a decision made overseas.
 
But what if he were? There are hundreds of other pilots who do, in fact, discharge weapons and then return home to their families, day after day, year after year.
 
Bauman says that all drone pilots are given the same access to counseling and mental health support as all other soldiers, but aren't given any sort of specific, specialized support.
 
Talking to Matthew, it seems as though he understands the gravity of the work that he's doing.
 
"It’s very stressful. You can have a 90 percent slow-paced, average mission. Then, if something goes wrong, it's game on," he said. "I’m in charge of a very expensive aircraft over a bunch of people who could die. It’s in no way as trivial as a video game."

This child's ball is printed with letters of the alphabet and pictures of things that start with the letter. English Language & Usage Stack Exchange member gmauch asked what word could the image with the Y represent. It looks like an axe. Dozens of people are speculating on the answer, which leads down a rabbit hole of toy manufacturers, foreign languages, and counterfeiters. The Swedish word for axe is yxa, but connecting the ball to Sweden leads to a dead end. There are archaic terms that might work, but that makes no sense -but then, neither does using a submarine for the letter U, as in U-boat.

Las Vegas to offer clean needles through vending machines

Struggling to fight back soaring heroin and HIV rates, Las Vegas health authorities are betting on a new approach -- offering clean needles in vending machines.

Las Vegas has become the first city in the U.S. to provide addicts with free clean needles through vending machines; and officials believe that the new effort will help reduce transmission of potentially deadly diseases like HIV and hepatitis C.

The effort has been made by the Las Vegas Hard Reduction Center’s Trac-B Exchange program, which is known for making harm-reduction approaches.

Announcing the effort, Trac-B Exchange program manager Chelsi Cheatom said, “Anytime someone’s engaging in a behavior that could cause them some potential health side effects, we want to encourage them to reduce their risk.”

However, the free-to-use syringe vending machines are not accessible to anyone walking by. They are only open to clients of Trac-B Exchange.

As per a report by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), 1 in every 10 AIDS diagnoses in 2015 was attributed to intravenous use of drugs. Use of heroin among 18-25 years old individuals has doubled over the past decade.

          China’s capital flight and US monetary policy   

China’s capital flight and US monetary policy

Yin-Wong Cheung, Sven Steinkamp, Frank Westermann 27 January 2016

In a largely closed capital market like China, illicit capital flows are inherently difficult to measure as no official data is recorded and the true volume is unobservable. However, standard proxies in the literature suggest that it is economically sizable, amounting to up to 2% of GDP in recent years. Figure 1 displays three common measures of capital flight. Although these proxies appear to follow different dynamics, they have in common that they are large and on the same order of magnitude when compared to official flows.

Figure 1. Capital flight and official flows

Data sources: National Bureau of Statistics of China, China State Administration of Foreign Exchange, Directions of Trade Statistics (IMF), International Financial Statistics (IMF), own calculations.

Measures of capital flight

The World Bank residual measure of capital flight is based on the balance of payments statistics. It compares the sources to the uses of funds – that is, it takes net foreign investment and the change in foreign debt and deducts from it the current account balance as well as the change in reserves. The remainder is a series that has widely been used as a proxy of capital flight in the literature, an unexplained component in the balance of payments.

The trade mis-invoicing measure is based on the fact that different statistical agencies record the same export/import activities, but often report different numbers. For instance, an export out of China worth $1,000 may enter the US statistics with a value of $1,000, but enter the Chinese statistics with a value of only $500. When abstracting from transportation costs this ‘under-invoicing’ of exports may be a sign of capital flight, as the remaining $500 is placed in a US bank account rather than being sent to China.

A new pattern

An interesting new pattern is the decline of total illicit flows in recent years. In particular, capital flight as measured by trade mis-invoicing has declined since the beginning of the Crisis in 2007/8. In a new paper, we explain this new finding and interpret the results in the context of China’s trend towards a gradual liberalisation of its capital account (Cheung et al. 2016).

Earlier empirical studies have shown that illicit flows, just like official flows, respond to interest differentials between countries. As capital controls exist, covered interest differentials can occur and attract portfolio rebalancing by investors on both sides. The covered interest differential has been documented to be a relevant empirical factor explaining China’s capital flight. In our extensive empirical analysis, we show that this empirical link has remarkably diminished in recent years. Using an interaction dummy variable, we show that the post-2007 response to the covered interest differential has been significantly smaller – and is hardly different from zero.

The impact of US monetary policy and other factors

A new factor that started to play a role in the post-2007 period is the relative money supply between China and the US. While China’s money supply has been rapidly increasing for many years, the US has been following an expansionary monetary policy only since the onset of the Global Crisis. Empirically, we find that this change in the relative monetary stance of the two countries has had an impact on investors’ decisions to reallocate their portfolio between the two countries. The US expansion has significantly reduced capital flight out of China, in both the trade mis-invoicing as well as a combined measure of capital flight.

This empirical result helps to explain the reduced impact of covered interest differentials. The fit of the regression, measured for instance by the adjusted R2, improves when relative money supply and a dummy variable for the post-2007 period are added to the regression. This finding is also robust when controlling for other factors in a multivariate regression setup, including relative growth rates, exchange rate regimes dummy variables, and so on.

Another new factor that becomes increasingly important is China’s gradual process of capital account liberalisation. Using the new index of capital controls by Chen and Qian (2015), we control for this process. We find that it also starts being significant in the post-2007 period. Investors appear to appreciate China’s new policies by investing their financial resources domestically. Nevertheless, we also find that the ex post realised exchange rate volatility is a negative factor for capital flight (i.e. an increase in intra-day volatility of the renminbi has a significant positive impact on capital flight out of China).

A caveat: Transportation cost and insurance

In the absence of official data, all measures of capital flight are proxies and must be interpreted with caution in general. This is particularly the case for the trade mis-invoicing measure, as exports are commonly reported without transportation cost and insurance while data on imports include these items. The IMF and other researchers typically assume a constant 10% of the net trade value for transportation and insurance when computing trade mis-invoicing proxies.

But certainly trade costs can vary both across countries and over time. The statistical significance of tariff revenues in our regressions suggests that this is indeed a potential shortcoming of the analysis. To address this issue, we construct a modified version of the trade mis-invoicing measure that uses country-specific and time-varying trade cost estimates that were computed by the CEPII institute from a standard trade-gravity equation. The main results in the empirical analysis are unaffected by this change.

Economic and policy implications

Our empirical results highlight the challenges of managing China’s capital flight. First, different measures of capital flight seem to have different empirical determinants. Second, these determinants have been changing over time. From the Chinese perspective, it is thus important to take a disaggregated analysis into account when designing further steps of financial opening.

Our regression analysis extends only to the end of 2014 and does not include the events of the past year. Our findings imply, however, that the increased volatility in the summer of 2015 and in particular the recent raise in US interest rates, which were associated with expectations of a more general reversal of US monetary policy, may be the cause of a resurgence in capital flight. This reversal has already been visible in the World Bank residual measure, as well as the combined measure, in the first three quarters of 2015.

          The enduring structure of the Federal Reserve System: Is it time to redraw the map?   

The enduring structure of the Federal Reserve System: Is it time to redraw the map?

Matthew Jaremski, David Wheelock 25 October 2015

The Federal Reserve System was established in 1914 as a confederation of 12 regional districts, each with its own Reserve Bank. A Reserve Bank Organisation Committee (RBOC), comprised of the Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Agriculture, and Comptroller of the Currency, was appointed to select the cities for Reserve Banks and to set district boundaries. The Reserve Banks remain in the 12 cities selected by the RBOC and, except for a few minor adjustments made early in the system’s history, the borders of the Reserve Districts have never been changed.

The selection of cities for Reserve Banks was controversial in 1914 and remains so today. Seen in Figure 1, the RBOC placed four Reserve Banks within just a few hundred miles of one another in the Northeast, and two Reserve Banks in Missouri; and yet single Reserve Banks serve vast territories in the western two-thirds of the nation. Commentators have long called for a redistribution of Reserve Banks, particularly in light of the shift of US population and economic activity to the South and West that has occurred since 1914 (e.g., Bordo 2015). Richard Shelby (R-AL), chairman of the US Senate Banking Committee, introduced legislation on May 12, 2015 calling for the establishment of an independent commission to review and suggest possible changes to the structure of the Federal Reserve System, including to the number and location of Federal Reserve Banks and district boundaries.

Figure 1. Federal Reserve Districts in 1914

Source: RBOC (1914).

It has long been alleged that political considerations strongly influenced the selection of cities for Reserve Banks (e.g., Willis 1923), though recent scholarship has largely concluded that most of cities chosen for Reserve Banks could be justified on economic grounds (e.g., Binder and Spindel 2013, McAvoy 2006). The Federal Reserve System was established to bring stability to the US banking system, primarily by providing a ready source of liquidity to the commercial banks that joined the Fed System. The Reserve Banks were to be on the front lines, holding the reserves of their member banks, lending to them in emergencies, and operating the payments system. In exchange for purchasing stock in and maintaining a reserve deposit with their local Reserve Bank, members received access to the Fed’s discount window and other services, were paid a dividend, and had a vote in the selection of the Reserve Bank’s board of directors.

Because the Fed’s member banks were both the primary customers and the stockholders of the Reserve Banks, the RBOC gave them a strong voice in choosing where the Reserve Banks were to be located. All national banks (i.e., banks with charters issued by the federal government) were asked to name their top three choices for the location of their Reserve Bank, and those votes appear to have strongly influenced the committee’s decisions. In recent research, we estimate several multivariate regressions of the selection of cities for Reserve Banks and branches, and find that the votes largely explain these selections (Jaremski and Wheelock 2015).1 Further, using voting data aggregated at the county level, we find that the votes go a long way to explaining the boundaries of Federal Reserve districts. Even decisions that today seem questionable, such as the placement of two Reserve Banks in Missouri, seem less so in light of the preferences expressed by national banks at the time (Wheelock 2015).

Our research attempts to explain the votes of national banks for the location of Reserve Banks. Although the votes of individual banks are not available, we find that county-level vote totals are explained well by established correspondent banking relationships. In short, banks appear to have voted for cities where they already had correspondent ties. Cities whose banks already provided services to large numbers of national banks tended to receive more votes, and thus were more likely to be awarded a Reserve Bank or branch office than were other cities.

To a large extent, the Federal Reserve System was placed over the old correspondent banking system it was meant to replace. The major cities in the Northeast—especially New York City, but also Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore—had long been important correspondent banking centres. Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and Minneapolis were important banking centres in the Midwest, and San Francisco was dominant on the West Coast. All of these cities, save for Baltimore, was given a Reserve Bank.2

More Reserve Banks were placed in the eastern half of the nation than in the west for two reasons:

  1. Eastern cities received far more votes from national banks than cities in the West and South; and,
  2. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that each Reserve Bank have a minimum capitalisation paid in by its member banks.

Given the sparse population of national banks (and people) in the South and West, shown in Figure 2, Federal Reserve districts in those regions had to be larger than those of the Midwest and Northeast simply to amass enough capital to organise a Reserve Bank. Further, the RBOC may have put more Reserve Banks in the Northeast to reduce the dominance of the banks in New York City, the nation’s financial capital.

Figure 2. National bank locations in 1914

Source: Comptroller of the Currency (1915).

Should there be more Reserve Banks in the West and South?

The question remains whether there should now be more Reserve Banks in the West or South, either by moving some from the Northeast or establishing new districts. The shift of population and economic activity to the West and South since 1914 suggests that were the locations of Reserve Banks and district boundaries set today, the Federal Reserve System map would look very different than the one shown in Figure 1.

The Federal Reserve map has not changed significantly in 100 years, but both the mission and the technology of central banking have changed dramatically. In the early days, when the Fed’s interactions with its member banks were conducted mainly in person or through the mail, minimising transportation times between Reserve Bank offices and member banks was crucial for performing the system’s mission as lender of last resort and for operating the payments system efficiently.

Today most of the interactions between the Reserve Banks and commercial banks are electronic, so close proximity to a Reserve Bank or branch is no longer important for most member banks. Moreover, the Reserve Banks now play a significant role in monetary policymaking—a concept not contemplated by the Fed’s founders.

Concluding remarks

Although the Fed’s decentralised structure arguably promotes good policymaking by helping to ensure that different points of view are heard and different regions of the country are represented, modern communications technology reduces the need for physical proximity to a Reserve Bank.

Probably more important than the physical locations of Reserve Banks is the distribution of monetary policymaking authority on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). Some argue that the Reserve Banks outside of New York should have a stronger voice on the FOMC (e.g., Fisher 2015), while others propose to weaken or even remove altogether the Reserve Banks from monetary policymaking. Those who favour a continued or expanded role for the Reserve Banks contend that the system’s regional diversity and political independence contribute to better policymaking. A system that is responsive to differing economic conditions that might exist across the regions of a large and diverse nation was certainly a principle on which the Federal Reserve was established.

SMITH'S LAUNCHES GROCERY HOME DELIVERY SERVICE
Locally- based PigeonShip Selected as Delivery Partner

Smith's Food & Drug Stores has launched grocery delivery to customers' homes using PigeonShip, a Utah-based delivery service provider.

Utilizing Smith's online grocery ordering service, ClickList, which offers more than 40,000 items from desktop or mobile devices, customers may now also choose home delivery by PigeonShip as an option to curbside store pick up in two test market areas.

PigeonShip is a dynamic hyper-local same day delivery service, focusing on quality control and customer satisfaction, but with enormous flexibility and reach to accommodate both business and consumer demands.

          Comment on SBC Seminary enrollment wars and other interesting data points by Louis   
My perception is that each seminary has its own flavor, so to speak, and for me that is fine. There are issues of regionalism, emphasis, and personality that affect all of these things. SWBTS had really high enrollment numbers for years because of the perception that a student could attend there and not be awash in liberalism, which was stronger at Southern and SEBTS. New Orleans, GG, and MWBTS were seen as more regional, I suppose. The founding of the seminary at Baylor had a big impact on SWBTS. Also, Reformed theology is the rage with young people, and SWBTS is decidedly not that. I don't believe the dust ups over hiring and "prayer languages" have really affected SW all that much. I have never met a young person who told me they chose Southern, MW, GG, or SE over SW because of that. They may have chosen more liberal schools in TX over SW for different reasons. But if they did, I would want to know for certain why if I was ever going to hire any of them. The SBC churches should guard their doors very carefully to see that neoorthodoxy and/or some political emphasis that is exchanged for Gospel ministry do not creep back in. In my view, those dangers are very present.

Michiko Ohmukai v Yumi Fukawa (ASRION, 4/11/98)

This was really awesome. I was a bit worried they were going down a route I wasn't really interested in with the very first exchange, then approximately forty seconds in Ohmukai started kneeing Fukawa in the face and they never looked back. Who the fuck is Michiko Ohmukai, anyway? She was fantastic in this, like a more supple Takeshi Ono. She threw forty yarders to the gut, a couple Wanderlei punts, a brutal axe kick, and she hit one springboard wheel kick where she landed with practically her entire body weight on Fukawa's head. There was one bit where she'd gone for an armbar and Fukawa made it to the ropes, then as Fukawa was on all fours trying to get back to her feet Ohmukai just drilled her elbow with a kick. It was nasty as hell. Fukawa was her usual spunky self and all of her tricked out submission attempts had a hint of desperation about them. It felt like she actually HAD to get creative when going for submissions just to avoid being booted in the mouth. And that finish looked like it just about ripped out BOTH shoulders. What a cool find (credit to Jetlag on PWO for bringing it up). I need to watch more Ohmukai.


CIMA v Minoru Fujita (M-Pro, 1/9/00)

This feels like something I probably watched on an early Schneider Comp. I didn't really have high expectations for it since CIMA is a guy I haven't cared for in about twelve years, and Fujita has never left much of an impression on me from the first time I saw him, but I wound up thinking this was rock solid. CIMA sold the early work on his arm well, then dropped it when it felt appropriate. It's not like a ton of time was dedicated to working it over, so he wasn't going to leave it hanging by his side the whole match. The legwork on Fujita lasted long enough as well that by the time they moved into the finishing run, it felt like Fujita had mostly recovered from it. He sold enough in the immediate aftermath that CIMA's stretch of legwork didn't feel meaningless. The match length probably helped that. I don't remember when it started, but at some point in the last ten years a ton of juniors matches seemed to go half an hour or longer, and it made things feel really wonky. The overall pacing, the perfunctory beginning, the meandering in the body, the overkill at the end -- it's a style that wasn't suited to going thirty, sometimes forty minutes (KENTA did it about four times a year). You'd have someone getting their leg torn to bits for ten minutes straight, then a switch would flip and they'd move into the ten minute finishing run without the leg ever being a factor thereafter. That criticism might be old hat these, but certainly used to bug me. With this only going seventeen minutes they got to stretch out and build to a hot finish, but the middle portion never felt bloated with limb work that wasn't going to factor into the finish, anyway. They used their time and laid things out really well, basically. And I don't even think they overdid it with the finishing run, either. It ended with the crowd at their hottest and none of the kickouts felt like they were too much. I'm glad I bothered to check this out.
          Life is Nothin' but a Dream, so Peaceful and Serene, Unless You're Bein' Evil, then You're on Tenryu's Team   
Genichiro Tenryu & Yoshinari Ogawa v Jumbo Tsuruta & Kenta Kobashi (All Japan, 8/19/89) - GOOD

I never knew Tenryu and Ogawa ever teamed together. Ogawa wasn't an obnoxious wee prick yet so they weren't quite the pair of assholes they'd be a decade later, but if nothing else it's cool that it actually happened. As you'd expect, this is mostly about Jumbo/Tenryu, but that was never a bad thing in '89. They start out working some basic holds, but they hit each other real hard and that leads to them dropping the kneebars in favour of going toe to toe. Their exchanges were always on that cusp of breaking down into a brawl, so even if the matwork wasn't great it at least had an edge to it. Jumbo tags out a couple times and Tenryu tells him to man up and get back in, so Jumbo obliges and Kobashi has to wait a little longer for his turn. Kobashi and Ogawa are super raw at this point and most of what they do looks pretty ugly, but they try hard and I don't have any problem with young guys overreaching a bit. Their interactions with the opposing Big Dog were great. You had Ogawa stepping to Jumbo and bloodying his nose so Jumbo would flatten him with nasty forearms. Kobashi would go at Tenryu and Tenryu would just waste him with upward angle chops right to the throat. Ogawa v Kobashi was the weak point (understandably), but there was this amazing spot where Tenryu back body dropped Ogawa right onto Kobashi's face. This was eleven minutes long and it had plenty of neat stuff.


Complete & Accurate Tenryu
          Shoot Style, Memphis and...Paul Roma!   
Jerry Lawler, Koko Ware, Jerry Jarrett & Tojo Yamamoto v The Spoiler, Phil Hickerson, Billy Travis & Ron Sexton (Memphis, 8//10/85)

I was smiling pretty much all the way through this. I had no memory of Tojo Yamamoto being babyface. Had no memory of Jerry Jarrett wrestling this late. Had no memory of Billy Travis working Memphis. Jarrett felt like such a random addition to this (which I guess is fitting, because that's a pretty dang random assortment of names). He looks like a total jobber with his bog standard look, skinny frame and all around flimsiness. He tries to backdrop Phil Hickerson at one point and Hickerson just picked him up and dropped him awkwardly across his knee. Tojo wasn't involved much but man was he fun. Basically all he did was chop people, but everyone bumped big for him and he got fired up like a crazy wee gremlin bastard. Billy Travis was in full stooge mode and it was great. It was Travis who bumped biggest for Tojo's chops and he took a cool inside out bump off a Lawler clothesline. Koko did most of the heavy lifting for the babyfaces and he hit one dropkick that was absolutely fucking unbelievable. I legit shouted "look at that fucking dropkick!" and rewound it about six times. He also won the first fall with this awesome mule kick-dropkick thing (a mule dropkick? I guess) off the second rope. Memphis was the funnest. 


The Rockers v Power & Glory (WWF Superstars, 4/15/91)

This wasn't very good. On paper I thought it looked like an interesting match-up, but it wasn't all that interesting in practice. I remember being a fan of Power & Glory as a kid. I don't remember why. Maybe it was the cool tights. Roma is jacked like a motherfucker and I guess he was an okay shithead, but he's pretty cookie cutter in every aspect. He did have one amusing turnbuckle bump at least. Hercules looks kinda rough at this point and works real slow. Jannetty tried to make his clotheslines look good by doing a Billy Travis inside out bump, then later tried it again and landed on his neck, but there's only so much Marty could do. Fairly lackluster shine segment, lackluster heat segment, tepid hot tag and a non-finish. I'd like to think these teams had a decent match in them, but this wasn't it. 


Kiyoshi Tamura v Wataru Sakata (U-Style, 2/15/03)

I thought for sure I'd seen this before, but if I had I forgot how good it was. Because it was REAL good. I don't know if these two ever fought in RINGS, but Sakata has a bug up his butt about something and slaps Tamura cross the face pre-match. In his younger days Tamura would've come out trying to tear off limbs (or he'd be the one doing the slapping), but this time he came out unperturbed and just went about business. Some of the matwork in this was really great, which probably shouldn't be surprising. Felt like Sakata was the aggressor for a lot of it with Tamura playing defence. Tamura's older now but his defence is just as spectacular as it was in the 90s; maybe even more so because he has a calmness about him now, like he's a guy who's seen it all and found a way out of every submission you can put him in. He has a calmness about in general. This is his house now and he has nothing to prove to anybody. As this went on they started to move to the feet a bit more and a few of the exchanges down the stretch were awesome. Sakata is pushing for the KO and Tamura looks like he's barely hanging in there, so he backs Sakata into the corner and throws knees to the body from the clinch. Then he backs up and drops Sakata for a 9 count with a jumping high kick. Match wasn't too long, but it built in drama and reached a hot climax. I wish U-Style stuck around. 

          Tamura v Mishima (U-Style)   
Kiyoshi Tamura v Dokonjonosuke Mishima (U-Style, 4/6/03)

I don't know why it's taken me so long to watch this. I've wanted to check it out for ages, but it's not on Tabe's Best of Tamura comp and I figured all the U-Style on youtube had been ripped down, so I kept putting it off and figured one day it'd appear somewhere. Well it's back on youtube (or maybe never left), so here we are. This is the first and only time I've seen Mishima. He's always been that guy with the funny name who wrestled Tamura. "I've seen most of Tamura's U-Style stuff already but there's that match with Doko...Dokojuno...that Mishima guy. Maybe it's good." Of course it was good. Maybe it's just because I've been watching a lot of so-so shoot style going through the UWFi shows, but I thought this was different gravy, especially the matwork. The mat exchange at the beginning was total RINGS and Mishima brought a ton to it. He brought a ton to everything. Elliot on PWO described him as having a kind of "weirdo style," and I definitely got that vibe at a few points with how he'd set up submissions in interesting ways, almost feigning strikes before jumping into an attempted ankle lock, using an armbar as a set up for a choke which he applied with his legs. Some of his stand up was really cool as well. He was doing fucking Eddy Gordo capoeira handstand kicks at one point. The finish with Mishima managing to wriggle free of a choke only for Tamura to INSTANTLY grab the cross armbreaker was really awesome. This was a shade over ten minutes and it rocked.
          UWFi 'MOVING ON IV' (7/30/91)   
This show started with another kickboxing contest. I'm pretty sure it was Ohe from the 6/6 show, but I don't know the other guy. He got damn near curb stomped, whoever he was.


Yuko Miyato v Tatsuo Nakano 

This started out pretty tentative, but after a little while things picked up and it turned into a decent scrap. They throw a bunch of palm strikes that lead to knockdowns that aren't really knockdowns, but that added to the scrappy feel of it. Like, Miyato's strike didn't exactly knock Nakano down, but it unbalanced him as he was about to retaliate and it caused him to slip. I guess it was right on the cusp of a knockdown, but with a wag of the finger Nakano made sure the ref' knew it wasn't. At one point they even end up tumbling out the ring and I half expected Nakano to pull a Kitahara and hit Miyato with a chair. Nakano has been using the choke regularly since the debut show and the crowd are definitely picking up on it. Sometimes it's worked (used it to submit Anjoh), sometimes it hasn't (had it reversed into an armbar against Takada). I thought he'd managed to submit Miyato with it here, but apparently Miyato grabbed a heel hook or something and it was Nakano who tapped. It was hard to tell with the ref' being in the way.


Kazuo Yamazaki v Billy Scott

This was much more like it for a Yamazaki v gaijin fight. Last time he was stuck with the rubbish JT, but Scott is far more capable and it meant Yamazaki didn't need to baby him. Yamazaki has definitely stood out on these early shows, even if he hasn't been in anything blowaway. I'm not sure he's underrated necessarily, at least not among shoot style fans, but he has a sort of understated badass aura about him that not many people talk about. He's pretty stoic and businesslike, never looking especially perturbed, but that makes those moments where he's in trouble stick out. You know how capable he is, so if this Billy Scott guy comes in on his first night and gives him some serious bother then maybe people should be paying attention to Billy Scott. Some of the stand up in this was really good because we got to see Yamazaki let loose with the kicks opposite a guy that knew how to defend against them (I don't want to keep ragging on JT Southern, but you could tell Yamazaki had to hold back there). Scott retaliated with some knees and solid palm strikes and was always dangerous with the throws. Down the stretch there was some pretty big drama as well, a few rock solid mat exchanges and a nice finish with the standing choke. Scott is definitely the best of the Americans on the '91 shows so far, and I know he comes back because I've seen at least one of his matches with Anjoh from '93. This wasn't a classic, but it was good stuff.


Nobuhiko Takada & Kiyoshi Tamura v Yoji Anjoh & Jim Boss

I'll take pretty much every bit of Tamura/Anjoh I can get and their exchanges in this did not disappoint. I don't really want to start talking up Anjoh as one of Tamura's three best opponents ever, because it's been ages since I watched any RINGS Tamura, but it feels like he probably belongs in the discussion with guys like Yamamoto, TK and Han. Anyway, whenever this was Tamura v Anjoh it ruled. It followed the same pattern as the 7/3 singles match with the awesome, fast mat exchanges, Tamura determined to prove a point and Anjoh determined not to let him. Anjoh still has the advantage in the stand up, but it feels like Tamura has improved there even in the space of time between their singles match and now. Takada/Anjoh was pretty good as well, especially when they leathered each other with kicks. The ground exchanges weren't nearly as exciting as Tamura/Anjoh, but they were fine. I'd like to see Takada match up with someone who's closer to his level in the pecking order soon, because he hasn't really stretched out against his opponents so far due to the hierarchy gulf. The Anjoh exchanges have been his best up to now, though. Boss was pretty clearly the weak link in this. Apparently he's a kickboxer, but I'll assume that's some carny horse shit because he certainly doesn't seem like one. Or maybe he is and he just doesn't know how to pull his strikes properly so he purposefully throws feather dusters (the anti-Murakami, then). Either way they were not good (and they weren't any better in the '92 show). When he threw kicks he looked like some high school douchebag trying to wind up the Asian kid with shithead karate. I don't think he extended his leg once, generated no power through his hips, had a weird face-on stance, etc. I get not wanting to full force roundhouse someone, but if you're supposed to be a kickboxer on the same show where someone got decapitated in a shoot kickboxing contest, you need to be bringing some thunder. He mostly paired up with Takada and it wasn't great, but then in the back half of the match he got to do some stuff with Tamura and that was better. It was pretty much all Tamura, though. Takada was kind of content to let things move along steadily so Boss could find his feet a bit. Tamura had no time for that and MADE him get it together. It's that chip on Tamura's shoulder again; he's just 100% effort all the way and you either keep up or you get smoked. There was a great bit where Boss threw his one and only good kick of the match and Tamura sold it like he'd been shot, struggling to regain his bearings for a minute or two afterwards. Match was a little long, but it had plenty of Tamura/Anjoh so I can accept the trade off.


This was another solid show. Maybe I'm finding this stuff easier to watch because I find so-so shoot style less troublesome to get through than other so-so wrestling (and the shows aren't very long, anyway), but even your Miyato v Nakano bouts have been fine. There wasn't a truly standout match on the card, but Yamazaki got to look real good against a capable opponent and there was more Tamura/Anjoh in the main. And any Tamura/Anjoh is a good thing.
          UWFi 'MOVING ON III' (7/3/91)   
Yuko Miyato v Tom Burton 

Pretty much nothing happened in the first five minutes of this. Like, at all. Burton walks around with his guard up and Miyato probes, but nothing connects, it's just Burton stalking him down and Miyato keeping him at arm's length. At one point Burton threw a series of knees and Miyato slipped and fell over, but it didn't even register as a knockdown. That was the extent of the action in those first five minutes. Then they get the 'five minutes passed' call and almost straight away Miyato starts winging leg kicks, which gets him a knockdown. Burton starts selling the leg by backing up and limping slightly, so he goes for his bread and butter (the takedowns) and actually hits a butterfly suplex. Finish was cool as well. It's not easy to make a powerbomb look like a shoot move unless you're Rampage Jacksoning your way out of a triangle choke, but this looked like Miyato got caught in the gut and buckled over, so Burton capitalised and drilled him. Burton isn't all that good really, but you can tell he tries and there's something easy to like about the big lug's enthusiasm.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Yoji Anjoh

Well this was tremendous. It's a total "underdog trying to step up to the plate" story and Tamura has the biggest chip on his shoulder the whole way through. Right at the start you see it when he dumps Anjoh a couple times and tells him to bring it. Anjoh will sometimes do something dickheaded and it just annoys Tamura and makes him even more desperate to prove himself at Anjoh's expense. He throws some slaps and you can tell it gets to Anjoh, because he responds by throwing brutal knees to the body in explosive flurries of annoyance at what this kid is doing. When he gets REALLY annoyed he pushes the envelope a bit and drops some super nasty knees across Tamura's head, and that leads to an awesome moment where Tamura repays the favour and Anjoh looks at him almost in disbelief. The nerve of this kid, who does he think he is? Anjoh grabs hold of Tamura's hair to prevent him from putting on a half crab, so Tamura drops the hold and just slaps him across the face. He knows how Anjoh is and he knows the last thing you can do is let him take liberties. It was a great dynamic and it ran through the whole match. Defensively this was a spectacular performance from Tamura. The speed on some of the ground exchanges was astonishing and Tamura would constantly roll out of or reverse situations that looked dangerous. When people talk about defensive wrestlers, at least in a shoot style context, the guy I think of as the bar setter is Fujiwara. I'm not saying Tamura is better, but at this point I think he's right on that same level, albeit in a different sort of way. Defensively Fujiwara was wily. He used all of his smarts along with the stellar ground game. He'd sometimes sucker guys in, and when he looked most vulnerable he'd completely flip the script and submit them, or at least use their fervor to finish the match against them in some way. With Tamura, it's his athleticism that's remarkable. His speed on counters, how he can wriggle free and instantly turn a position where he's almost caught in an armbar into a position that's advantageous. There were plenty examples in this, but the best might've been his escape from a front facelock straight into a go-behind. That probably doesn't seem terribly special just from reading about it, but it was breathtaking in execution and judging by the crowd response I wasn't the only one who was taken aback by it. Towards the end you could see him starting to tire, Anjoh's strikes to the body starting to wear him down more and more. He keeps on coming because he refuses to be denied and the crowd stay firmly behind him, but he was already fighting an uphill battle on the feet and it's tough to keep going on the mat when you've been kicked and kneed in the guts for fifteen minutes. You can have the strongest engine in the game, but that takes its toll. After the match Anjoh hangs around for a little while, because even a shithead like Anjoh can appreciate Tamura's effort. Real recognise real. Tamura had less than ten matches in his career at this point, btw. That's David Robinson averaging 24 and 12 in his rookie season level.


Kazuo Yamazaki v JT Southern

JT is by far the worst of the Americans Takada has brought in. It's difficult to bullshit your way through shoot style because if you can't do it properly then it's glaringly obvious, and it's already likely the hardest style in all of wrestling to work, so he really had no chance. At times Yamazaki looks disinterested because he knows he's saddled with an unenviable task and it's pointless to even try and make this compelling. Once or twice it looked like he might've considered taking liberties and just wasting JT, but then he'd reel back. Southern can't really do anything on the mat and his stand up is basically putting a shoddy guard up. Finish was kind of hokey. Maybe the ref' decided to be merciful.


Nobuhiko Takada v Tatsuo Nakano

This was another underdog v established star match, only where Tamura was a young prodigy looking for his first decent-sized scalp, Nakano is a lumpy little guy looking to somehow upset the ace. His task is just a little more daunting. He's an unassuming little dude and on the surface not hugely impressive, but you usually get fun character moments with Nakano and we got a couple in this. Takada brushed off a leg kick as if to say Nakano's shot was nothing to him, so the first leg kick Takada throws after that was met with the exact same response. Crowd picked up on this and they were solidly behind Nakano for the rest of the match. Nothing on the ground was amazing, but they had a few nice bits standing up where Nakano would try and take Takada's back for a throw. I liked Takada's attention to detail during those parts, leaning forward so Nakano couldn't use leverage, reaching between his own legs in case Nakano tried to shift his foot under there to try and roll Takada back for a takedown. When he tried that again Nakano dropped his grip on Takada's waist and reached up for the choke, which again got a pretty big pop.


Maybe the best show so far, even off the strength of Tamura/Anjoh alone. That's certainly the best match so far. Takada pairing up with Nakano in the main event was welcome as well. His opponents in the first two shows ranged from limited-yet-likeable to woeful, and Nakano might not be world class but he's a step above that.
          UWFi 'Ruling the World' (1/9/92)   
Ruling the World is the show name, obviously. That wasn't my idea of a snappy title. I have a hard enough time trying to come up with different titles for Puerto Rico entries.


Hiromitsu Kanehara v Masakazu Maeda 

Really good shoot style young lion bout. It's not quite striker v grappler, but Kanehara certainly gets the better of the ground exchanges while Maeda dominates the stand up. Minus one throw a piece, every point Maeda loses is through rope breaks and every point Kanehara loses is from knockdowns. Maeda also gets testy at a few points and just stomps on Kanehara's head. Maybe it's something in the Maeda name. This has a fifteen minute time limit and I was expecting the draw the longer it went, but knowing UWFi I wondered if they were going to have someone pull out the victory at the death. Last minute is pretty dramatic as you have the call for thirty seconds remaining, Kanehara pushing for the submission while Maeda tries to make it to the ropes or hang on for the bell. I guess this was a bit similar to Tamura/Kakihara from the debut show with two young guys out to make a name for themselves. It wasn't quite as good as that; it was more of a 'pretty' contest and didn't have the same level of desperation or grittiness, but I dug it. Maeda only stuck around in wrestling for about nine months, but it looked like he had something about him. Kanehara was never afraid to get punched in the mouth. I mean he fought (and got leathered by) Wanderlei, Cro Cop, Overeem and Shogun in consecutive PRIDE appearances. That's ballsy as fuck. 


Masahito Kakihara v Tom Burton 

This wasn't amazing or anything, but I liked the story. Burton still doesn't have much of a stand up, nor does he set the world on fire on the mat, but he has some nice throws and can use the weight advantage if he needs it. Kakihara builds a big lead by forcing rope breaks and one knockdown off a fucking jaw-jacker of a roundhouse kick. He's in full control and it feels like he could win pretty much whenever. But to his credit, Burton keeps on trucking. Eventually he gets down to his last three points, so one more knockdown and he's done, and it leads to some dramatic exchanges where Kakihara lets loose with flurries. And Burton still keeps trucking, forcing a few rope breaks, scoring a knockdown off a big suplex. Kakihara still looks comfortable enough when they're on the mat, but Burton is starting to use the weight advantage more. Maybe Kakihara should've been a bit more lethal going for the KO earlier...


Tatsuo Nakano v JT Southern 

This was not good. JT Southern is not good. Nakano is good, but he wasn't dragging Southern to much and didn't look particularly interested in trying. At a couple points Southern applied a weak kneebar and Nakano would look totally disinterested with this "really, mate?" expression on his face. Then he'd roll over and casually kick him in the head. For the finish he decided he'd had enough and just ended it with a knee strike and a half crab.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Yuko Miyato

This was REALLY good. More than that, though, Tamura looked super awesome in it. Some of his defensive work was incredible, rolling through on armbars and scrambling away from submission attempts. There was one bit where he was going for a choke and Miyato was trying to grab an arm, and Tamura was relentless in his pursuit of that choke while avoiding all of Miyato's attempts at catching him. Tamura also busted out a few Han-esque setups for submissions, including a picture perfect rolling cross armbreaker. All of the stand up exchanges were strong as well, especially the one at the start leading to an early Tamura knockdown. Towards the end Tamura zeroes in on Miyato's leg and will not rest until he's made Miyato tap. Miyato is perfectly fine if unspectacular, but this is one of those fights where you get to see how amazing an athlete Kiyoshi Tamura is.


Kazuo Yamazaki & Yoji Anjoh v Gary Albright & Jim Boss

Man, I fucking loved this. I wouldn't really think of shoot style as being the environment most conducive to big spectacles, but UWFi always did things a little differently and this had just the right amount of pro style to make it a heck of a fun spectacle. This is one of the better Albright performances I've seen. He came across as a total monster, just destroying guys with suplexes and clubbing them about the head. Whenever Yamazaki or Anjoh landed a strike of any sort it felt like an accomplishment because Gary was able to either block or catch most of them. Even something like a Yamazaki high kick that would go over Gary's head had people stirring, just because the shot actually got close. The first exchange with Anjoh was awesome because Anjoh is so totally out of his depth with the size difference and he knows it. Albright just walked through Anjoh's kicks, grabbed hold of him and tossed him. There was one bit later where Albright got in close and Anjoh had to resort to dropping to his knees to avoid being suplexed, but Albright just grabbed him anyway and Anjoh had this amazing "oh I am fucked" expression as he got launched with a deadlift German. The Albright/Yamazaki exchanges were great as well; maybe even better than Albright/Anjoh. Yamazaki has a longer reach on his kicks and the first one that truly landed got a huge pop, then later when Yamazaki manages to suplex him the crowd responds with a big Yamazaki chant. Boss isn't great, but all he has to do as Albright's partner is not lose. His kicks were super light and he never had much to offer on the ground, but he was vocal with his selling and took a Yamazaki roundhouse kick square in the face. So fair play to him, I guess. Last stretch had some nice drama with Albright chucking Anjoh around, and there were a couple women in the crowd who looked terrified for him. Anjoh straight dives at Albright and catches him with a knee and the two women start to believe, but then Gary clubs him and grabs him around the waist and the women literally cover their eyes because they know what's coming. Anjoh makes it up to his feet after the first German (which was fucking disgusting) and sort of staggers towards his corner. He doesn't really know where he is, but he's close enough where he could probably tag out. Albright realises and charges him again, going in for the kill, and this time Anjoh doesn't get back up. This'll probably end up being one of my favourite matches of the entire UWFi run (I say that as if I'll ever come close to getting through all of the shows). 

          UWFi v WAR (5/27/96)   
This was the first UWFi show in the interpromotional feud with WAR. I've seen some stuff from that feud, like Tenryu/Anjoh and Tenryu/Takada x2, but never a full show. UWFi was kind of on its last legs at this point and would close its doors indefinitely by the end of the year, but apparently this show drew 15,000 at the Budokan and I would not have expected that.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Kazushi Sakuraba

Tamura's last match in UWFi before heading to RINGS. I don't know if the story about him working this as a big fuck you to the company/Takada is true or not, but it was certainly a RINGS match more than a UWFi one. The matwork especially is very RINGS; super fast sprawling and tumbling and jockeying for position. They only use one rope break each and mostly work to a stalemate, but it's the kind of shoot style matwork that's my absolute favourite matwork in wrestling. It's not quite the highest of high end RINGS, but you could see they had something brilliant in them and probably would've produced it if Sakuraba went to RINGS rather than Kingdom/MMA. There was one bit where Sakuraba was shifting his weight to get into position for a cross armbreaker, trying to force Tamura's hands apart. He leaned back to break the grip, but Tamura used Sakuraba's momentum to roll backwards and essentially wind up with side control. Finish was so good. Sakuraba comes in close and throws an uppercut, so Tamura moves in to close the distance and they sort of wind up in a clinch. I'm not sure if Sakuraba tried to throw another palm strike inside or Tamura just grabbed an arm, but one second they were standing in the clinch and the next Tamura had rolled him into a perfect cross armbreaker. Tamura was about to go on a run where he legit had a handful of the best matches ever done in the style, and this was a nice way to cap off his time in a promotion he'd pretty much grown out of.


Hiromitsu Kanehara v Akira Nogami

I did not know Nogami ever worked shoot style. Or this approximation of it, at least. They don't use the points system and there's a nearfall of a German suplex, so I guess it's a mishmash of shoot/pro. For five minutes I thought this was pretty tidy. Kanehara has big time strikes and tries to kick Nogami's leg in half and Nogami sells it like he has half a leg. Kanehara goes for a big KO shot, but Nogami ducks it and hits a German for a nearfall,which is about the most headway he'd been able to make up to that point. He then tried to follow up with another, because why wouldn't he, I guess? but Kanehara rolls through into a kneebar and Nogami has no choice but to tap. Perfectly fine.


Naoki Sano v Kenichi Yamamoto

Man this ruled. I don't know why, but these two do not like each other and we get an awesome start with Yamamoto charging in straight away flinging slaps and Sano pump kicking him in the face. While the last match was like a UWFi/NJ match this was more Battlartsy. Naoki Sano was fucking awesome at the pro wrestling, man. He's always able to incorporate pro style moves into a shoot style setting in really cool in organic ways. In this he applied what was basically a scorpion deathlock, then transitioned into an STF/choke, then into a regular crossface. Yamamoto stood him up and planted Sano right on his neck with a backdrop, but then got ahead of himself in the stand up and Sano OBLITERATED him with a spinning back kick. This hit flush in the face and I was stunned Yamamoto was able to get up. Well, Sano just dropped him again anyway, this time with a couple ugly looking powerbombs, eventually hooking in a choke for the submission. Six minutes of badass, that's what this was.


Tatsuo Nakano v Koki Kitahara

How about this for a lumpy undercard dream match? This was like some parallel universe Dark Tower shit because both guys are basically each other if their career trajectories happened to be swapped. Nakano works SWS/WAR? He's Kitahara. Kitahara does shoot style and ends up in a Takada promotion? He's Nakano. To be fair, though, I actually didn't expect Kitahara to be as fun in this environment. I mean, it isn't really a shoot style match as opposed to a pro style match with shoot style trappings, but it was a neat enough amalgamation and I liked how Kitahara handled himself. The early mat exchange was nice and solid and once again Nakano ends up with a bloody nose. It must be made of mashed potato. Pretty soon they start smacking each other in the face real hard and my Clone Wars theory is confirmed as Kitahara's nose also gets opened up, though this was at least a result of a nasty looking knee and not just breathing, which is what I assume did for Nakano. Nakano hits a German and Kitahara no sells it like "*I* am the lumpiest here!" and roundhouse kicks Nakano in the head. This was yet another fun six minutes.


Yoji Anjoh & Yoshihiro Takayama v Hiromichi Fuyuki & Gedo

Anjoh cuts an amazing promo before this starts. I don't even know what he's saying but he's wearing a dress shirt and beige chinos and you can tell he's being a condescending prick to the ugly homeless WAR guys, making these "I'm soooo scared" gestures while Takayama laughs at his little buddy's mean jokes. I'm not sure it's particularly smart business practice for a shoot style fed to have this on the same card as Tamura/Sakuraba. Like, this is not shoot style at all. At times it even felt a bit like a wink wink nudge nudge comedy match. But I'll be fucked if I didn't enjoy lots of it. Anjoh and Tak started out sort of dismissive, poking fun at the tubby WAR dudes and Gedo's ring gear. Fuyuki wants a Greco-Roman knuckle lock so Tak holds his hand way up and Fuyuki can't reach it. Anjoh is one of my favourite shoot style guys but he's such an awesome smug little carny that he makes this kind of match his home as well. He and Takayama were like a pair of all-star high school receivers welcoming a ragtag secondary that could barely run the length of themselves. So the secondary started being dirty fucks and kneeing the all-stars in the balls. I love how vocal Fuyuki is in the ring. He does this shrieking thing as he goes to hit someone and it makes him sound like a wildman. Anjoh mocks him for it so Fuyuki hits him with a fire extinguisher and we get a heat segment on Anjoh who blades and everything. Fuyuki punches him in the cut and team WAR work full on heel. At one point Fuyuki brings in a pair of Y-fronts or something and puts them on Anjoh's head, and Anjoh wrestles the rest of the match with these blood-soaked Y-fronts on his head. It was...strange. As was the finish. I have no clue what that was about at all. This was basically a WAR match that happened to be taking place in UWFi. There was nothing UWFi about it other than the initials on Anjoh's singlet.


Shiro Koshinaka v Masahito Kakihara

This started out great with Kakihara rifling off a big slap and Kosh dropping him with a brutal, side-of-the-head brainbuster. For the most part the match continued in that vein. One thing I've liked about this show is catching a glimpse of some shoot style guys working a bit of pro style. Sano's obviously always been awesome at it and I'd seen Anjoh work it plenty of times. Takayama had one of the best heavyweight runs of the 00s. But it was cool seeing Nakano do it, and it was cool seeing Kakihara do it too (though I suppose you could argue UWFi always had some pro style elements). He only had six minutes to work with (lot of 5-6 minute fights on this card), but he made the most of it. He threw down with lots of nasty palm strikes and lariats, so Kosh was almost forced to grab a front face lock just to contain. Kosh has been around the block more than once, his age is starting to show a bit, but he knows how to handle a young guy getting chippy. The hip attacks are still treated as a big deal even if they maybe look a touch ridiculous in a shoot style setting, but we've been over that already and I don't want to keep harping on it. Finish was nasty and yet probably only the third nastiest version of it done on this show.


Nobuhiko Takada v Yoshiaki Fujiwara 

I liked this while it lasted, but it had a bummer of a finish that I assume was unplanned. There was lots of Fujiwara playing defence in this and it was pretty great, which should be unsurprising because nobody has ever been better at playing defence than Fujiwara. Takada caught him with a leg kick early and I love how Fujiwara tried to nonchalantly walk it off, but he couldn't hide that dead leg limp and the crowd picked up on it. Takada tried to force the issue on the mat and there was one bit where he almost grabbed a triangle, and Fujiwara was wheezing and drooling trying to fight it. Fujiwara went down at the end like he'd punctured a lung, but this was just starting to pick up when it happened. Going by Takada's reaction it wasn't supposed to end like that after nine minutes.


Honestly, I had fun with this. The main event was underwhelming, but it was cool to see that match-up in '96. There were really only two matches that you could say were proper shoot style, but I wouldn't be surprised if UWFi had started to mix shoot and pro style at least as far back as the interpromotional deal with New Japan (I may end up finding out if I stick with this). There's only so much you can do when you're bringing in guys that don't normally work shoot style. The quasi-shoot/Strong Style thing they seemed to be going for worked okay, though. The tag was pretty much 100% WAR, but then I'm not sure you could expect anything else based on the participants on the WAR end. Tamura/Sakuraba was excellent. RINGS (or Pancrase) was probably the next logical step for Tamura. UWFi had passed him by at this point. Or he'd passed it.
          UWFi 'MOVING ON II' (6/6/91)   
This show started with a kickboxing contest between Rudy Lovato and Makoto Ohe. I'm pretty sure Lovato had a fairly lengthy boxing career but I have no idea who Ohe is. It was a spirited fight, but as far as I could tell it was a shoot, so in eight years if I do a 'best of UWFi' match list after watching all these shows, this won't be included. Can't be mixing the shoots with the works, brothers.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Tom Burton 

This was a fun look at Tamura v an opponent who outweighs him by a fair bit who's also willing to take it to the mat. It wasn't like Tamura v Bitsadze Tariel where Tariel was about double the size of Tamura but wanted nothing to do with being on the deck. Rather than Tamura grappling with a big bear who just wanted to box his ears in you had Burton using the weight advantage to force Tamura to the mat, so Tamura had to find ways of escaping and either trying to find his own submissions or reset back to the stand up. Burton mentions in his pre-match interview that Tamura has quick feet, and before long Tamura starts finding his range with kicks. They sting a bit, not really doing a ton of damage, but Burton has to be wary of them. Eventually he catches one, and for a second or two he stops to soak in this minor victory before more or less falling on top of Tamura to take him back down. He starts to find more joy on the mat and at one point he even hits a sidewalk slam as a knockdown, but Tamura is slippery and it's hard to lock him into anything. Eventually he leaves the back door open wide enough for Tamura to slip out and grab a cross armbreaker. Tamura does not look like a wrestler who's only had eight matches at this point in his career.


Kazuo Yamazaki v Yuko Miyato

This had a little history from the debut show as Yamazaki was on the losing side of the tag opposite Miyato and Anjoh, thanks in part to a bunch of Miyato body kicks. I don't know if they deliberately played off that, but Miyato sure threw a few body kicks in this. Some of the stand up exchanges, particularly the kicks, were excellent. Kicks to the body, brutal leg kicks, and at one point Miyato broke a Yamazaki leglock by kicking him across the jaw. They also had a few exchanges standing up where they sort of jockeyed for position without fully going for a takedown. In one instance Yamazaki almost grabbed an underhook and there was this gasp from the audience at the prospect of a butterfly suplex.


Yoji Anjoh v Tatsuo Nakano

Anjoh signals pre-match that they're gonna leave out the elbows this time in a nice callback to the debut show tag. Nakano isn't in any mood for jokes, however. This lasted a shade over fifteen minutes but the first half had some downtime. Nakano was persistent, but a lot of what he was doing was reminiscent of the earliest UFCs where Royce Gracie would just lie on top of an Art Jimmerson until claustrophobia kicked in and they'd tap out because they literally couldn't move. Anjoh isn't Art Jimmerson so he didn't tap out, and this annoyed Nakano enough to start throwing elbow from the mount. Somewhere along the line Nakano's nose got busted open again and I don't think I've seen a Nakano match yet where his face doesn't get bloodied up. Everything after that is much better. Anjoh starts hucking strikes, but once more Nakano just lowers his head and keeps on coming. He's like an indestructible little beach ball. He also hits a couple big German suplexes and eventually his desire to chuck Anjoh around pays off as it directly sets up the surprise finish. This wasn't mind blowing, but the second half picked up nicely after the slowish start.


Nobuhiko Takada v JT Southern 

This wasn't great. Even if I don't love Takada it's hard to criticise him for having the worst bouts on these shows when he's matched up with the worst opponents. It's not that I think Takada outright sucks anyway, it's just that I don't have a ton of interest in watching him fight a JT Southern. If I'm gonna watch him then I'd rather it was opposite Tamura or Yamazaki or Sano or, you know, someone good. Which JT Southern...isn't. Maybe. This is the only time I've seen him, but he didn't make me want to seek out more. His strikes were pretty rubbish and this was at its best when Takada blasted his way through whatever JT had as stand up defence and slapped him about the face. I haven't looked ahead to any future cards but I'm hoping Takada fights someone better soon.
          UWFi Debut Show 'MOVING ON' (5/10/91)   
The places you can find semi-obscure Japanese pro wrestling these days. I don't even remember how, but the other night I stumbled across every UWFi show ever ran...on Amazon Video. How random is that? Every show (that I can tell, anyway), from their debut through to their final show on 12/27/96, all available. They're not free, obviously, but it's fairly cheap to buy shows singularly, so I bought the first one. I'm not really the biggest UWFi fan, but there's a goodly amount of Kiyoshi Tamura and Yoji Anjoh on these shows that I haven't seen before, so I'll probably end up getting a few more.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Masahito Kakihara

The first UWFi match ever and boy is it a doozy. This is Tamura's seventh match of his career. Seventh! That's nuts, because he's already really good. Kakihara has even less under his belt than Tamura. They did look like two young guys out there, not quite polished yet, but full of determination and ready to be the next big thing. You could see it towards the end when the strikes, which were super fast at the start, began to slow way down. It was ragged, the kicks coming like they were thrown in quicksand, but it added to the whole deal. They're on their last legs, but they'll keep swinging until someone drops. It led to a bunch of nasty, reckless exchanges of open handed slaps to the head and body, where you could buy either one of them going down with one well-placed shot. I haven't always loved the way UWFi would use pro style moves, but I liked how they worked them in this, especially the fireman's carry/Samoan drop thing that Tamura basically used as a submission set up. The guy was an absolute prodigy and it showed. 


Yoji Anjoh & Yuko Miyato v Kazuo Yamazaki & Tatsuo Nakano

This took a bit to get going, but once it did there was plenty to like. Yamazaki carried himself like a...moderately sized star, and there was a big buzz around him getting into the ring for the first time. Nakano is the little shoot style engine that could. He gets his nose popped open and his face is covered in blood but he just puts his head down and motors on, grabbing Miyato around the waist and flinging him with a German suplex. This had a few great Anjoh moments, as every Anjoh match does. First Nakano tried to break a submission by using the point of the elbow, which Anjoh wasn't best pleased with. Next opportunity he had, Anjoh repeatedly elbowed Nakano in the head. His petulance really is spectacular. There's a Yamazaki/Anjoh exchange where Anjoh throws a nasty kick while Yamazaki is down in the ropes, and it looks like that's gonna lead to a big shootout between the two. But then Anjoh just waves it off and tags in Miyato. Miyato surprisingly gets the better of Yamazaki on the feet by scoring a couple knockdowns, so THEN Anjoh tags in to pick up the scraps and get the win. Post-match Nakano refuses to shake Anjoh's hand so hopefully that's setting up a singles match on a later show. 


Nobuhiko Takada v Tom Burton

Felt like Takada never had to do much for most of this, though I think that was by design and part of what they were going for. Burton came in wanting to prove that America had the better, tougher wrestlers, so the onus was on him to force the issue and he tried to take it to Takada early. Takada was content to let him and never had much trouble dealing with it. He wasn't exactly dismissive, but he was never flustered, never looked in any danger. I'm not sure Burton is any good really, but he had some moments. Takada gave him a quick leg kick and Burton looked at him like "oh, you motherfucker." Takada would then tee off on the leg at points after that and Burton was pretty amusing selling it, though it won't be for the purists. Towards the end he actually started making some headway, forcing Takada into a couple successive rope breaks, chipping away at Takada's points...but man, Takada isn't compelling at all. There was one bit where he just stood up and kind of waited for Burton to come around and suplex him. It's not that I expected Takada to make it look like Burton had a serious shot of beating him, because Takada was the unquestioned ace and a Takada victory was the only outcome worth considering, but sometimes he'd look totally disinterested with that "flossing before bed" face while sitting in a hold. Then again, Burton's half crab was atrocious, so I'm not sure you can blame him too much. RINGS this ain't. BUT. This was okay.


Solid debut show. Tamura/Kakihara was great and once the tag got rolling it had some good stuff. Main event wasn't amazing or anything, but it was alright and at least solidified Takada as The Man right off the bat. I'm pretty unfamiliar with this early period of UWFi, but without looking at any of the cards it feels like there might be some worthwhile stuff. I'll definitely watch some more. 

          Puerto Rico, Day 112   
La Gran Guera I (12/12/87)

This is Puerto Rico's version of Wargames, except it's crazier than Wargames because it's Puerto Rico. Two teams of five, everybody starts in the ring at the same time, and you're eliminated by being handcuffed to the cage (there are pairs of handcuffs all around the two rings). Once all five members of a team have been handcuffed, the winning team then get to free any handcuffed members of their own team and spend five minutes doing as they please to the losing team, who remain handcuffed to the cage. Be honest, you want to watch this based on the description alone. Rudo unit consists of Abby, Chicky Starr, Kareem Muhammad, Hercules Ayala and the Grizzly Goon or something. There's a very good chance I'm wrong about that last one because I didn't recognise the guy, I might've misheard Hugo on commentary, and searching Grizzly Goon is yielding no answers of worth. But they're your rudos. Tecnico unit is Colon, Invader I, Bruiser Brody, TNT and Dutch Mantell, which was an awesome surprise. You fully expect this to be wild and crazy and that's exactly what it was. Chicky was probably my favourite guy in it. He took a bunch of great bumps off of being flung into the cage, he bled like crazy, and when things got a little too heavy he'd try and burst his way out the cage (it had a roof, so he couldn't). Maybe it's because there was so much going on and he wasn't the focus for large stretches, but this felt like a strong Brody showing. He seemed generous enough in exchanges, and there was one point where he just unloaded on Abby with the best punches he's ever thrown while the crowd went bonkers. I loved Colon and Invader's dual comeback at the end as well, Colon with his carved up forehead and Invader with his white mask stained blood red. This was pretty awesome.


La Gran Guera II (12/13/87)

A step down from the last one, but more of the same. This time Muhammad is out and he's replaced by the Iron Sheik, but otherwise the teams are unchanged. Chicky was probably my favourite again. Him and Invader go after each other right away and then spend large parts of the match punting each other in the balls. Even when Chicky ends up handcuffed Invader will still wander over from time to time to low blow him. I'm not sure this is the best setting for Abby. I've loved him on this set, but I think in a match like this, where there's so much going on and it could be easy for a guy to rest on his laurels, he was mostly content to stand by the ropes and chop people in the throat or be punched in the head until his scar tissue opened up. There was plenty of stabbing in this as well and it wasn't even him doing it (it was Sheik, and it was some nasty stabbing). Dutch was pretty low key in both these matches. He threw some killer punches, but it felt like he spent most of the time handcuffed and out the way.


Hugo Savinovic v El Profe (Loser is Painted Yellow) (1/5/88)

This was way better than I thought it was going to be. I never knew Hugo had been a wrestler earlier in his career. It's really fun to hear him commentating on his own match, and he actually had some pretty good offence, sold well, and the crowd were all the way behind him. I don't know who El Profe is but he worked well in this, too. He hits a nasty double stomp, eats knees like a trooper off a top rope splash, and will bite Hugo's forehead when he needs to. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing more of these guys in the ring at all.


Invader I v Super Black Ninja (1/23/88)

Okay, so Invader v Mutoh (Super Black Ninja) is one of the few matches from Puerto Rico I'd seen before. Not this match specifically, but one of the stadium brawls (I think it was a Texas Death Match). This was more of a slow burner, but it built up to a hot finish. Young Mutoh had such a cool presence. The way he moves around and conducts himself, it has a hint of menace to it, like he's stalking you down. Plus he was super quick with his strikes, his dropkick had massive air, and he'd do things like his spazzed out elbow drop that just looked cool. We've heard plenty about him being lazy and all that, and I'm not really a fan of his, but early Muta could be pretty fun and he had a genuine aura. Invader was probably at his best during this on the back foot, which won't be too surprising because he's Invader and you want to watch Invader selling, but the early matwork was pretty solid as well. I'm looking forward  to seeing these guys try to tear each other's throat out soon (I mean, hopefully).


We're now four discs down. This wasn't as strong a disc as the amazing disc 3, but it was probably never going to be. What we did get, though, was the incredible blowoff to one of the best feuds ever, more insane Terry Funk, and the first appearance of Mutoh in Puerto Rico. And La Gran Guera was fucking nuts.
          UFOs   

When we thought about packing to move back to the U.S., I thought to myself, "Well, at least I don't have piles of unfinished projects.  I've finished nearly everything I've ever started."  I was pretty proud of myself.

When we actually started packing, and I went through several cupboards where it was easy to stash stuff and never have to look at it again (until you moved), I surprised myself--I must have had about 10 UFOs, which were "so very UFO" that even I had forgotten about them!  I laughed at myself, and my convenient memory, which had convinced me I had no UFOs at all!  I made some tough (and some not-so-tough, if the truth be told) decisions, and tossed some of those pesky things. 

The things I kept were pieces that only needed a binding (this was from my foray into hand quilting, where it took me long enough to hand-quilt something that I forgot where I put the binding.  Then I'd put the piece away, and come across the binding a couple of weeks or months later--and the two never seemed to meet after that.  Yes, yes, I know, there are lots of clever ways to keep the bindings with the piece until you're ready to sew it on.  Unfortunately, in these cases, I used NONE of those clever ideas.)  I also kept a couple of pieces I'd nearly finished hand-quilting, mainly because of the time I'd already put in on them.

I still haven't unpacked the UFOs or my other quilting stuff (and I know you're shocked, after reading my other posts) but the rest of the story is . . . I've discovered that my mother, though she sewed clothing and never quilted, was some sort of Master of UFOs.  I have no idea how old some of the unfinished projects we've come across actually are--although in some cases, we could match the fabric/pattern combo with some child who might have worn such a thing.  For the last several years, my mother didn't come upstairs much in her house--and she certainly wasn't going through the closets when she came up here.  When someone cleaned for her, apparently she just told them to put anything that was in the way "in the closet," because every time we opened a door, there was more stuff!  Much of it had been pinned, cut and marked--but just never sewn.  Avoiding the pins proved interesting . . . several times, because I appear to be a slow learner in that department.

We had to throw nearly all of it away--so much work to get those projects to that point and have to discard them--but some of the stuff was dirty, some of it didn't have all the pieces, etc.  A real pity.  We also found lots of unused fabric, some of which I saved for future quilting, and boxes and boxes of patterns--and fabric left over from all of our weddings--Mother had made all the bridesmaids' dresses for most of her children's weddings, and also for friends of ours.  That was fun to look through and exchange memories about.

Moral of the story--I've resolved once again to FINISH ALL PROJECTS, and to finish those hand-quilting projects during the long winter months, when I'M GOING TO HAVE MORE TIME.

          EFCC files charges against judge who allegedly received N3.5 million ‘bribe’   


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has filed, before a Lagos Division of the Lagos State High Court, charges of unlawful enrichment to the tune of N3.5 million against James Agbadu-Fishim, a judge of the National Industrial Court.


According to the charge sheet, the EFCC alleged that Mr. Agbadu-Fishim received the funds from seven Senior Advocates of Nigeria, a Lagos-based lawyer, and a law firm between 2013 and 2015.

The money, the EFCC claimed in the charge sheet, was paid into the judge’s First Bank account with number 3008199491.

The judge, according to the EFCC, allegedly received a total of N1.15 million from Felix Fagbohungbe between December 5, 2013, and February 26, 2015.

He also allegedly received a total of N700,000 in multiple tranches from Paul Usoro (SAN) between August 5, 2014, and March 26, 2015.
Other senior advocates who allegedly paid money into the judge’s bank account include Adetola-Kazeem, who gave him N100,000 on February 10, 2015; and Uche Obi, who gave him N250,000 between October 17 and 20, 2013.

The rest include Muiz Banire, who according to the EFCC, gave the judge N500,000 on June 20, 2013; and Adeniyi Akintola, who gave him N300,000 in two tranches of N200,000 and N100,000 on June 3, 2013, and February 26, 2015, respectively.

The EFCC further claimed that the judge received a total of N250,000 from Joseph Nwobike (SAN), in tranches of N150,000 and N100,000 on December 12, 2014, and September 10, 2015, respectively; while a Lagos-based lawyer, Enobong Etteh, was said to have transferred N200,000 to the judge on October 27, 2014.


A law firm, Alliance Law Firm, according to the EFCC, also paid N250,000 into the judge’s account on August 21, 2015.
The anti-graft agency alleged that Justice Fishim received the money “so as to have a significant increase in your assets that you cannot reasonably explain the increase in relation to your lawful income.”

It alleged that the judge acted contrary to Section 82 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, No.11, 2011.
A date is yet to be fixed for the hearing of the case.

When they were invited by the Commission for questioning, last year, some of the lawyers accused of giving money to the judges maintained it was not a bribe.

For instance, Mr. Banire, announced at the time he would be stepping down as the national legal adviser of the All Progressives Congress pending conclusion of investigation, said the N500,000 he gave the judge was meant for his mother’s funeral.

Also, Mr. Akinola had told newsmen last year that Mr. Agbadum-Fishim had been his friend for more than 25 years.
“I gave him N100,000 twice when he lost his parents as financial assistance,” the lawyer had said.
“I did not even attend the events. He has also given me money twice: N50,000 (when I lost my mother in 2014) and another N25,000 when my daughter wedded. He attended the two events. It was a kind of exchange of gifts. I knew him when he was in the University of Abuja.”

          GROUP DISCUSSIONS - - - - PROVE YOUR ABILITIES   

While selection tools and techniques like tests, interviews etc. provide good data about an individual, they fall short in providing real life data of how an individual would be performing in a real life situation especially a group situation. Team work being an integral part of the any work profile, it is important to ascertain group and inter-personal qualities of an individual. Group discussion is a useful tool to ascertain these qualities and many organizations use GDs as a selection tool along with Personal Interviews, aptitude tests etc. A GD is an activity where
Groups of 8-10 candidates are formed into a leaderless group, and are given a specific situation to analyse and discuss within a given time limit, which may vary between twenty minutes and forty-five minutes, or

They may be given a case study and asked to come out with a solution for a problem

They may be given a topic and are asked to discuss the same

1. Preparing for a Group Discussion:
While GD reflects the inherent qualities of an individual, appearing for it unprepared may not augur well for you. These tips would help you prepare for GDs:
Reading: This is the first and the most crucial step in preparation. This is a never ending process and the more you read, the better you are in your thoughts. While you may read anything to everything, you must ensure that you are in good touch with current affairs, the debates and hot topics of discussion and also with the latest in the IT and ITES industry. Chances are the topics would be around these. Read both for the thoughts as well as for data. Also read multiple view points on the same topic and then create your point of view with rationale. Also create answers for counter arguments for your point of view. The electronic media also will be of good use here.
Mocks: Create an informal GD group and meet regularly to discuss and exchange feedback. This is the best way to prepare. This would give you a good idea about your thoughts and how well can you convince. Remember, it is important that you are able to express your thoughts well. The better you perform in these mocks the better would be you chances to perform on the final day. Also try to interact and participate in other GD groups. This will develop in you a skill to discuss with unknown people as well.
2. During the Group Discussion:
What do the panelists assess:Some of the qualities assessed in a GD are:
Leadership Skills - Ability to take leadership roles and be able to lead, inspire and carry the team along to help them achieve the group's objectives.
Communication Skills -

Candidates will be assessed in terms of clarity of thought, expression and aptness of language. One key aspect is listening. It indicates a willingness to accommodate others views.
Interpersonal Skills -

People skills are an important aspect of any job. They are reflected in the ability to interact with other members of the group in a brief situation. Emotional maturity and balance promotes good interpersonal relationships. The person has to be more people centric and less self-centered.
Persuasive Skills -

The ability to analyze and persuade others to see the problem from multiple perspectives.
GD is a test of your ability to think, your analytical capabilities and your ability to make your point in a team-based environment.

These are some of the sub-skills that also get assessed with the skills mentioned above:
- Clarity of thought
- Group working skills (especially during a group task of case study discussion)
- Conflict handling
- Listening and probing skills
- Knowledge about the subject and individual point of view
- Ability to create a consensus
- Openess and flexibility towards new ideas
- Data based approach to decision making

While, it is not possible to reflect all these qualities in a short time, you would do well if you are able to show a couple or more qualities and avoid giving negative evidence on others.
Participating in the GD:
Generally, with the topic you are given 2-3 minutes to structure your thoughts. Make good use of this time. Note down all the points that come to your mind. This would help you not to forget any important points and also to listen to others during the discussion. If you have been given a case, reading it carefully, underline salient points and make notes.
Should I start or not:Start the discussion only when you are thoroughly conversant with the topic/case or else let others speak first. If you decide to start, it is best to elaborate the topic and put forward various dimensions of the subject in front of the group. If it is a case, list down the facts briefly, mention what needs to be done and details factors that you think are crucial to decision making in that case. Do not put forth your opinions, arguments and conclusions to the group as the next speaker might argue against them leaving you with a feeling that your best points have been knocked off. Elaborating the topic for discussion would reflect upon your clarity of thought, holistic approach and leadership skills (providing the group an approach to discuss a problem thread bare). Speak for not more than a minute as others would be too anxious to speak and you might be interrupted in-between. If you decide not to start, make sure that you are amongst the first 3-4 speakers. After that, the best points would already have been taken and you would not be able to create an impact. Some effective ways to initiate a discussion would be to make/give:
i. Quotes
ii. Definitions
iii. Questions
iv. Facts, figures and statistics
vi. Short stories
vii. General statements


How do I take my chance to speak:
Trying to interrupt others while speaking would only harm your chances. Instead, you may try to maintain an eye-contact with the speaker. This would show your listening skills also and would help you gauge from his eye-movement and pitch of voice that he is about to close his inputs. You can quickly take it from there. Also, try and link your inputs with what he has spoken whether you are adding to or opposing his arguments. This would reflect that you are actually being participative rather than just doing a collective monologue.
How do I communicate in a GD:
Be crisp and to the point. Be fact based and avoid making individual opinions that do not have a factual base. Make eye contact with all the members in the group and avoid looking at the panelists while speaking. The average duration of the group discussion provides an average of about 2-3 minutes per participant to speak and you should try to speak about 3-4 times. Hence, you need to be really crisp to reflect the most in those 30-40 sec. slots.
How do I convince others and make them agree to my view point:
A lot of candidates make it their mission to make the group reach to a conclusion on the topic. Do not forget that some of the topics have been eternal debates and there is no way you can get an agreement in 15 mins. on them. The objective is not to make others toe your line but to provide fact based, convincing arguments which create an impact. Stick to this approach.
Do leadership skills include moderating the group discussion:
This is a myth and many people do try to impose their order on the GD, ordering people when to speak and when not to. This only reflects poor leadership. Leadership in a GD would be reflected by your clarity of thought, ability to expand the topic in its different dimensions, providing an opportunity to a silent participant to speak, listening to others and probing them to provide more information. Hence, work on these areas rather than be a self-appointed moderator of the group.
Listening:
This is a key quality assessed during the GD about which many participants forget. Active listening can fetch you credit points and would also provide you with data to discuss. Also, if you have an average of 2-3 minutes to speak, the rest of the 20-25 minutes is required to spent in active listening. For this, maintain eye contact with the speakers, attend to them (like nodding, using acknowledging words like -I see ok, fine, great etc.). This would also make you be the centre of attraction as you would appear non-threatening to the speakers.
Behaviour during the GD:
Be patient; don't get upset if anyone says anything you object to. Stay objective and don't take the discussion personally. Also, remember the six C's of communication - Clarity, Completeness, Conciseness, Confidence, Correctness and Courtesy. Be appreciative & receptive to ideas from other people and open-minded but do not let others to change your own viewpoint. Be active and interested throughout. It is better to participate less if you have no clue of the topic. You may listen to others and take clues from there and speak. You would be assessed on a range of different skills and you may think that leadership is key, you need to be careful that you don't dominate the discussion.
Quality Vs Quantity:
Often, participants think that success in group discussions depends on how much and how loudly they speak. Interestingly, it's the opposite. Also, making your point on the topic, your views are important and the group needs to know. This will tell you are knowledgeable and that you participate in groups
Summarizing:
If you have not been able to initiate the discussion, try to summaries and close it. Good summarizing would get you good reward points. A conclusion is where the whole group decides in favour or against the topic and most GDs do not have a closure. But every GD can be summarized by putting forth what the group has discussed in a nutshell. Keep the following points in mind while summarizing a discussion:
Avoid raising new points.
Avoid stating only your viewpoint.
Avoid dwelling only on one aspect of the GD
Keep it brief and concise.
It must include all the important points that came out during the GD
If you are asked to summarise a GD, it means the GD has come to an end.
Do not add anything once the GD has been summarised.
Some Positive Task Roles in a Group Discussion:You may want to play one or more of them:
Initiator
Information seeker
Information giver
Procedure facilitator
Opinion seeker
Opinion giver
Clarifier
Social Supporter
Harmonizer
Tension Reliever
Energizer
Compromiser

          COMMUNICATION   

A lifelong process in the human life, COMMUNICATION is a way to express oneself in various ways : using words and without using a single word.

COMMUNICATION is the exchange or interchange of ideas or objects between two people or designated locations. More precisely the definition of communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source point across a distance to receipt point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source point. The formula of communication is: cause, distance, effect, with intention, attention and duplication and understanding. Communication by definition does not need to be two-way. Communication is one of the component parts of understanding.


COMMUNICATION is the process of exchanging information and ideas. An active process, it involves encoding, transmitting, and decoding intended messages. There are many means of communicating and many different language systems. Speech and language are only a portion of communication.

Ask yourself: Who? What? How? When? Where? Why?

- Who are you speaking to?
- What do you wish to communicate?
- How can you best convey your message?
- When? Timing is important here.
- Where? What is the physical context of the communication in mind?
- Why? What disposes them to listen?

COMMUNICATION requires effective time management : RIGHT WORD AT THE RIGHT MOMENT...

          Facebook’s Sex Offender discrimination policy under attack   
Civil rights group calls on Zuckerberg to follow Supreme Court’s lead Washington, D.C. — Representing nearly a million American citizens and their families, the National Association for Rational Sexual Offense Laws (NARSOL) is asking Facebook to permit registered sex offenders to create and maintain user accounts on the world’s largest forum for social communication for the first time since early 2009. On June 19, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that laws prohibiting access to social media sites such as Facebook are unconstitutional when applied to registered citizens who are no longer under any form of judicial sentencing such as probation or post-release supervision. A week after the unanimous decision was handed down, NARSOL’s Executive Director, Brenda V. Jones, sent a letter on behalf of the civil rights group’s board of directors calling on Zuckerberg and Facebook to end its nine-year-old policy prohibiting registered citizens from creating or maintaining accounts. Facebook—along with the then much larger MySpace—was browbeaten into a 2008 agreement with state attorneys general prohibiting registered citizens from accessing its online forum for social networking. Since then, Facebook has grown from 150 million users to nearly 1.4 billion, a fact noted by the eight supreme court justices who decided in favor of Lester Packingham and against a NC law prohibiting access to social media. NARSOL’s letter is addressed personally to Mark Zuckerberg and cites to Facebook’s newly revised mission statement: To give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together,  and its logical connection with these words from the Supreme Court’s decision: “Even convicted criminals—and in some instances especially convicted criminals—might receive legitimate benefits from these means for access to the world of ideas, in particular if they seek to reform and to pursue lawful and rewarding lives.” “This is the next logical step to take,” said Brenda Jones, NARSOL’S executive director. “Denying First Amendment rights to American citizens based solely upon status or a pejorative label has now been condemned by the highest court in the land. Now it’s time for Facebook to take this even further by removing its blanket ban.” “The world has changed considerably since 2008. It’s nearly impossible for a person to function without access to these ubiquitous forums for keeping up with family and friends, exchanging photos, discussing ideas, expressing opinions for and against whatever happens to interest you.

Add a last line to your case statement (i.e., there's something wrong with the data) that says "beat technician with stick." You might want to keep track of the number of times each technician does this so you know if they ought to be beaten about the head and shoulders or if their kneecaps should be targeted.

          Egyptian Cycling History - Then and Now - Subversive Photo Series   
In this latest installment of our "Subversive Cycling Photos" series, we travel to Egypt. The same utterings are heard here as most other places. About how "it's too hot to cycle" and "oh, but we never had urban cycling here..." With these historical photos, we once again bust some myths, like we've done for Singapore, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, New South Wales, Vancouver, Oslo, Dublin, Canberra, etc.

Copenhagenize Design Company has had the pleasure of hosting architect and urban planner, Ahmed Tarek Al-Ahwal, on an exchange from Egypt made possible by the support of the Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute. He curated these photographs highlighting a long and proud history of using the bicycle as transport in his country.

By Ahmed Tarek Al-Ahwal




Egypt's President Sisi has been on a bike ride or two, like this one in 2014. He has said that Egyptians should cycle more and that the country can save 16 Egyptian pounds for each 20 km cycled. He has, however, failed to provide any infrastructure.

In the recent memory of some Egyptians, cycling used to serve a much wider group of users than today. Residents in Port Said, a port city on the Suez Canal, are proud that cycling used to be their main mode of transportation. Indeed, during rush hour, the ferries were loaded with the bicycles of employees going to work. It´s a narrative that is heard in many other cities, usually followed by remarks about how women and children used to feel much safer cycling in cities and how there used to be many more bike shops - especially those serving a double-purpose. Shops that were also garages that would clean, repair and store bikes overnight.

Stories of huge bicycle racks next to office buildings, factories and schools are heard across the nation, from the north to the south. The textile factory in Shebin, a city in the northern Nile Delta used to host one of those, which was removed after cycling disappeared under the weight of car-centric planning.

Cycling Persists in Egypt

For many Egyptians, like other places around the world, cycling has become something unusual. Something subcultural, something done by poor messengers to transport goods, something for kids to do or a tool for advertising luxury, gated communities (photo, above).

When former bicycle users from this generation are asked about the reasons for the decrease in cycling modal share, they talk about the change of time, about the era where cars were much less and streets safer and you could feel safe about your kids rushing on their own through the streets. They also talk about the availability of bike racks near homes and work, and services around the city. All practical reasons that could easily be addressed by cities that aim to have less congested, less polluted streets with a better quality of life that is not exclusive to luxurious gated communities. Not to mention a healthy density and an economic alternative to sprawl.

Egyptian Cycling Culture

Unlike the old era, attempts to build bike infrastructure in the few last years in Egypt haven’t achieved the required goals. Instead of being used as an example of how cycling doesn’t fit the Egyptian culture, these projects must be addressed critically.

A symbolic stretch of bike lane.

The bicycle lanes painted on the Shahid corridor, an 8-lane highway in the desert, 14 km from the center of Cairo and 3 km from the nearest residential low density suburban area doesn’t seem to be a logical location to start.

The UNDP project of cycling lanes in Shebin are often ignored by bicycle users; the lanes deal poorly with intersections, also they don’t provide enough safety for bike users from traffic and are very vulnerable to be overtaken by car parking.

Safety and the perception of safety is a main issue keeping down the numbers of bike users and, if not addressed properly with infrastructure, cycling will not rise again as transport in Egyptian cities.

          Money laundering risk significant for private banking as 4MLD comes into force - European Commission   
Money laundering risk remains significant for private banking and institutional investment, especially through brokers, the European Commission said as the Fourth Money Laundering Directive came into force this week. "This is due to the overall higher exposure to product and customer risks, pressures of competition in the sector and a limited understanding among supervisors of their operational AML/CFT risks," it said in a report just published. Safe custody services are seen as significantly exposed to money laundering risks due to limitations in monitoring capacities for obliged entities, and the existence of non-regulated storage activities, the Commission said in the supranational risk assessment report. Electronic money or money value transfer services are considered significantly, and even highly significantly, exposed to money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks, it said. For currency exchange offices, applying the anti-money laundering rules to occasional

The Capitol Hill unit of the country’s fake news operation—50 or so crisply attired journalists with their faces deep in their phones—is loitering outside the ballroom where Republican senators are eating lunch. The spacious anteroom is packed; my colleague who reports frequently from the Senate and House says he’s never seen it so crowded. Behind the enormous doors, GOP leaders debate what is to be done about the Better Care Reconciliation Act, a potentially disastrous piece of legislation that could tear health insurance away from more than 20 million Americans. In the hallway, those of us who’ve been sent to the U.S. Capitol to find the news keep looking at our phones, hoping the news will come to us.

Hark—the news! Our screens reveal that the health care bill with the 17 percent approval rating has been kicked down the road until after Independence Day. We mill beneath a tremendous mural that’s tightly draped in plastic, like a Dexter victim, and make eyes at the century-old sculpture of Benjamin Franklin. Security types scurry about, herding us away from the staircase. “Make a path, guys,” says a broad-shouldered suit. Several of us drift reluctantly to the right, but only a few inches. “Guys. Guys. I know this is tough,” the man insists. We guys shift one or two more inches, then return to where we were. We watch the crack under the big doors as if a magic light might spill out at any moment and write our pieces for us.

Like the answer to a prompt on a flashcard, a familiar face materializes a few feet away. It is Elizabeth Warren, who strolls past our press amoeba with an intense expression that calls to mind such phrases as “due process” and “friends, Romans, countrymen.” When nobody detaches to follow her, my colleague explains with a sigh: “She never talks to us.”

A little after 2 p.m., the GOP brass finally finishes eating. (They’ve been at it since 12:30.) The senators now face a logistical challenge: All paths of egress swarm with piranhas who, convention dictates, can attack their prey far more ruthlessly than the more genial schools of notebook-wavers swimming around the White House and the Supreme Court. The anteroom branches into two exit routes: a stairway and a narrow corridor leading to an elevator lobby. We line the walls like villi coating the sides of a digestive tract. Sean Spicer walks by. Nobody moves. “Sean doesn’t know anything,” a colleague snarks.

The whispers start around 2:15. Murkowski, it’s Murkowski. Sen. Lisa Murkowski shoots out of the ballroom like a pinball. “Senator, senator!” the correspondents entreat in low voices. “Is the delay good or bad for the bill?” “Did the CBO score—?”

Murkowski doesn’t break stride. She proceeds to the elevator enclosed in a glom of pump-heeled, jacketed humanity, the whole inquisitive organism gliding with her and swishing its extravagant tail of stragglers. Then: Perdue. Perdue! Some of the clump breaks off and doubles back. The journalists on the sidelines pepper their returning colleagues with questions: What’d she say? Did you hear? There’s no time to debrief; Tim Scott, John McCain, and Bob Corker are streaking toward the staircase. It’s like the moment when, after a few trial pops, the microwaved popcorn starts cooking in earnest. The lunchers are dispersing everywhere; Democratic senators are arriving with prepared statements. The piranhas fan out, desperate for some morsel of flesh.

Power crisscrosses the anteroom in an invisible grid, or like the wire you pull on a bus to get it to stop. There is jocular power, exchanged in handshakes and good-to-see-yas, and the soaring power embedded in the architecture, and the breathless, sidelong power of being in the know. Two aides confer in the corner, their voices hushed and heavy with import. “That depends,” one murmurs, “on the defectors.” He kneads the word like a sore muscle.

In configuring itself around loci of legislative authority, the fourth estate follows certain rules. Taller, more aggressive journalists seem to gravitate toward higher-profile senators, such as Florida’s Marco Rubio. Smaller and shyer correspondents flit about the room’s edges, picking off lower-wattage congresspeople as they try to escape. There’s my colleague, latched onto John Thune like a sea lamprey.

The carnage of fact-finding roars around us, but this is ritualized, stylized mayhem. The politicians have their lines, their lockstep. The reporters know they won’t get anything other than a sound bite, if they even get that. Mitch McConnell may be trying to persuade his party to replace Obamacare with the legislative equivalent of a high school chemistry accident, but when he returns the gaze of 50 iPhone cameras, his eyes are not the window to his turbulent soul.

The evasive, boilerplate answers. The dispiriting contrast between the sense of things happening and the garbage you discover written down in your notebook afterward. In the Trump era, our best, most useful work seems to emerge from shadowy sessions with teed-off anonymice, not elaborate Kabuki performances in which John Cornyn’s indigestion might be mistaken for a brewing GOP revolt.

Standing in the hallway, waiting for someone important to say nothing as he or she breezes past, one can’t help but wonder if this entire ceremony deserves to go the way of Obamacare (RIP). Yet what if Murkowski forgets herself and reveals a top-secret plan to sabotage the BCRA? What if another civilian gets body-slammed by a public servant? The Capitol corps will be there, ready and waiting to let the American people know. That’s a comforting thought. Let’s hope their phones stay charged.

          Comment on Three Books on Marxist Political Economy (Pt 6) by Noa   
The discounted bills of exchange (or private bank notes) can comprise part of the balance sheet of the Bank of England, but please provide a quote from vol. 3 where Marx calls them a part of its reserve fund (or more specifically hoard). Boffy wrote: "the private reserves and hoards become bank reserves and hoards as banks come to consolidate all of these private holdings. " But in any case then, as I quoted, “money no longer functions as a hoard but as capital” (Capital v.2, p. 261). I think Marx in the section on hoarding could easily have slipped in a reference to notes, but he didn't. Just like Fullarton didn't. Boffy wrote: "the relation of notes to metal currency, and the way in which the excess of note issuance is not an excess in relation to the amount of gold reserves, as Sam set out in the article above, and as the Miseans believe, but is an excess in relation to the amount of precious metal that would have been put into circulation." Agreed. Boffy wrote: "It is the very fact that when notes are issued in excess of the gold or silver that would have been put into circulation, this results in a devaluation of the note, and an inflation of prices that shows that the laws apply equally to either precious metal currency or notes." By the way, Marx has in mind state paper money, which (as Sam indicates) must be differentiated from credit money. But recognising Marx's point that: "...a person who restricts his studies of monetary circulation to an analysis of the circulation of paper money with a legal rate of exchange must misunderstand the inherent laws of monetary circulation. These laws indeed appear not only to be turned upside down in the circulation of tokens of value but even annulled; for the movements of paper money, when it is issued in the appropriate amount, are not characteristic of it as token of value, whereas its specific movements are due to infringements of its correct proportion to gold" – does not mean that were gold to be "issued" in excess (as in Ricardo's example of the Bank sitting on a gold mine), the prices would rise. Here's where the function of hoarding comes into play, the excess gold would be turned into hoards (these include luxury articles). Gold's value would not depreciate, unlike in case of state paper. In case of excess of credit money (banknotes) they would return to the issuer (ie "law of reflux"). Boffy wrote: "There may be related liabilities. For example, the banknotes held by the bank may be there because they are the other side of the balance sheet to the capital contributed by the bank owners, or they may be the deposits of customers. In the case of the Bank of England, and other central banks it can simply print additional notes." Banknotes must have related assets (not liabilities), eg discounted bills of exchange or government bonds. The Bank cannot "simply print", it has to judge the credit-worthiness of its borrowers and the borrower has to be willing to borrow in the first place. That's the difference with the expenditure of state paper money, which does not require matching collaterilised assets or willing borrowers. Boffy wrote: "The fact that notes outside the walls of the Bank of England may be counted as in circulation, and may be in private treasures does not mean that these notes are not forming part of a hoard in Marx’s terminology. A hoard is something that is continually in flux, as money flows in and out of it in accordance with the requirements of currency circulation, including the requirements to make payments." It does mean that, because the notes (doesn't matter if it isn't those particular stockpiled ones) are expected to return when the assets mature. Gold coins don't have assets backing them, they aren't expected to return to any issuer upon maturation of some underlying asset. On tokens of value as opposed to metal money, btw here's a quote (Volume 30, MECW, p. 92-103) that they can't be considered capital: "If tokens of value circulate, whether they serve as means of circulation or means of payment, they merely represent the value of the commodities estimated in money or they directly represent money, which is equal in quantity to the amounts of money expressed in the prices of the commodities. As such they have no value. They are therefore not yet capital in the sense that the latter IS objectified labour. They represent instead in full the price of the capital, as they previously represented that of the commodity. If real money circulates, this is itself objectified labour — capital — (because commodity)."
          Comment on Three Books on Marxist Political Economy (Pt 6) by Boffy   
Noa, What I said was that the discussion of credit money and currency is not fully developed until Volume III. I didn't say Marx doesn't mention credit money prior to that. The point is that Marx's discussion of hoards itself means that such hoards can comprise, and indeed as he sets out in Volume III, do consist of bank notes, as easily as they can consist of gold or silver. Indeed if you read what Marx says about the reserves held of surplus value and the reserves held for the replacement of wear and tear of fixed capital, he points out that in practice these are never held as separate reserves, and that they are used interchangeably. The same thing applies in relation to reserves and hoards. Moreover, as he sets out in Capital II, the private reserves and hoards become bank reserves and hoards as banks come to consolidate all of these private holdings. Overwhelmingly they are held in the form of notes and coin. As far as conflating notes with precious metal currency, the reason that Marx says for not spending too much time on talking about notes in his initial analysis, is that the underlying laws on currency are the same for notes as for precious metals. That is in so far as the notes are issued in accordance with the same laws that regulate the amount of previous metal put into circulation as currency. Whenever people come to understand the laws relating to paper currency, Marx says, they are always forced to come back to the laws determining precious metals currency. Indeed, its that fact that enables him to understand the relation of notes to metal currency, and the way in which the excess of note issuance is not an excess in relation to the amount of gold reserves, as Sam set out in the article above, and as the Miseans believe, but is an excess in relation to the amount of precious metal that would have been put into circulation. It is the very fact that when notes are issued in excess of the gold or silver that would have been put into circulation, this results in a devaluation of the note, and an inflation of prices that shows that the laws apply equally to either precious metal currency or notes. "The token of value, say a piece of paper, which functions as a coin, represents the quantity of gold indicated by the name of the coin, and is thus a token of gold. A definite quantity of gold as such does not express a value relation, nor does the token which takes its place. The gold token represents value in so far as a definite quantity of gold, because it is materialised labour-time, possesses a definite value. But the amount of value which the token represents depends in each case upon the value of the quantity of gold represented by it... How many reams of paper cut into fragments can circulate as money? In this form the question is absurd. Worthless tokens become tokens of value only when they represent gold within the process of circulation, and they can represent it only to the amount of gold which would circulate as coin, an amount which depends on the value of gold if the exchange-value of the commodities and the velocity of their metamorphoses are given... The number of pieces of paper is thus determined by the quantity of gold currency which they represent in circulation, and as they are tokens of value only in so far as they take the place of gold currency, their value is simply determined by their quantity. Whereas, therefore, the quantity of gold in circulation depends on the prices of commodities, the value of the paper in circulation, on the other hand, depends solely on its own quantity... The State which issues coins even 1/100 of a grain below standard weight debases gold and silver currency and therefore upsets its function as a medium of circulation, whereas the issue of worthless pieces of paper which have nothing in common with metal except the denomination of the coinage is a perfectly correct operation. The gold coin obviously represents the value of commodities only after the value has been assessed in terms of gold or expressed as a price, whereas the token of value seems to represent the value of commodities directly. It is thus evident that a person who restricts his studies of monetary circulation to an analysis of the circulation of paper money with a legal rate of exchange must misunderstand the inherent laws of monetary circulation. These laws indeed appear not only to be turned upside down in the circulation of tokens of value but even annulled; for the movements of paper money, when it is issued in the appropriate amount, are not characteristic of it as token of value, whereas its specific movements are due to infringements of its correct proportion to gold, and do not directly arise from the metamorphosis of commodities." (A Contribution To The Critique of Political Economy) You say, "we have to focus not on the particular notes, but their underlying assets. Marx in volume 3 says:" But, for Bank of England banknotes, there are no underlying assets, the notes themselves constitute assets. There may be related liabilities. For example, the banknotes held by the bank may be there because they are the other side of the balance sheet to the capital contributed by the bank owners, or they may be the deposits of customers. In the case of the Bank of England, and other central banks it can simply print additional notes. The fact that notes outside the walls of the Bank of England may be counted as in circulation, and may be in private treasures does not mean that these notes are not forming part of a hoard in Marx's terminology. A hoard is something that is continually in flux, as money flows in and out of it in accordance with the requirements of currency circulation, including the requirements to make payments. There is a difference between talking about money being in circulation here and talking about money as means of circulation. Money in circulation can be used both as means of circulation, and means of payment, and indeed acts as a store of value, where that money is held prior to being used as means of payment. Money only acts as means of circulation when it is used in a transaction such as M - C, i.e. where it is exchanged directly for a commodity, as a prelude to a transaction C - M. Money acts as means of payment where it is used to cover the balance of transactions previously conducted by credit. In other words, A sells B a commodity with a value of £10, and B pays £10 to A a month later. Or A sells a commodity to B with a value of £10, and B sells a commodity to A with a Value of £20, so that a month later A pays the difference of £10 to B. But, in both cases the money used as means of circulation and means of payment had to be money that was in circulation. I think you are confusing the policy of QE, or what used to be called Open Market Operations by central banks with its normal process of putting currency into circulation. Either way, my initial point was, and remains that notes and coins act as means of circulation, means of payment and as store of value. They achieve that in so far as they are are issued in accordance with the laws that Marx describes relating to metallic currency that they are only put into circulation to the same amount of gold/silver they represent in circulation. As Marx makes clear none of that has anything to do with the amount of gold or silver that the central bank holds as reserves, which was the requirement stipulated by Ricardo and Orreton as implemented in the 1844 Bank Act.

          Twin Peaks: The Return - Episode 8 "Gotta Light?"   

Slead Score: B

Whelp, the coherence was fun while it lasted.

Despite jumping back into the void that is Lynch's mind, this truly unusual hour of television was something to behold. Perhaps it's the fatigue of wondering week to week if we'll ever get a traditional Twin Peaks experience in this new season, or maybe it's Stockholm syndrome at its most potent level. Regardless, the mysteries that we were warmly embraced with last week have taken a back seat to give honor to the surrealist filmmakers of the world. While most film students are well versed in experimental works like those of Maya Deren, most audiences will sit through five minutes of space scenes filled with gas and then promptly turn off the TV. Of course, being "well versed" doesn't always equate to enjoyment; especially in this case. However, if we can give Lynch one prop, it's how he manages to defy expectations at every turn. Last week we had arguably the most coherent and straightforward episode of The Return so far, only one week later to be slammed as far into experimental as anyone would ever imagine going. The great thing about episode 8 is that as experimental and head scratching as it is, it tells an interesting story of Twin Peaks and human nature as a whole.

Before we jump into crazy town, the opening act of "Gotta light?" does pick up from the plot we left off in the last episode. Mr. C, better known as Bob-possessed bad Cooper, has taken his getaway car with the help of Ray and is heading to the mysterious coordinates he's been hinting at for weeks. Of course, he must check off his evil deed for the day, which this time involved killing Ray in an empty field. However, Ray turns the tables and pulls a gun on Mr. C. Two bullets to the gut, and Mr. C is down, until several ghostly Charcoal Men rush over to his body, smearing it with blood, and seemingly revive him. All the while Ray screams to then finally run to his car to phone a warning to his comrades. We then cut to the Roadhouse in Twin Peaks, where Nine Inch Nails takes the stage to perform the longest and darkest song we've heard this season. Of course, both of these scenes feel like Twin Peaks and were an excellent precursor to what we experience for the remainder of the time.

Now, with that out of the way, Lynch then spends a good 25 minutes showing us the inside of an atomic bomb blast. Cutting back to 1945, the mushroom cloud of the explosion seems to hold more than radioactivity and death, a floating Bob head flies toward the screen, giving the nod to the idea that this evil spirit that has haunted Twin Peaks for so long is much older than we knew. Acting as an antithesis to this moment, a fortress alone on an island in the middle of what could be an ocean or just the void of space houses a woman and the giant from the Great Northern. As an alarm blares for attention, the giant switches off the warning to later release a cloud that transforms into Laura Palmer's face. The other inhabitant of the fortress, a well-dressed woman, kisses the Palmer bubble and it flies away, much like Bob's from the nuclear cloud. Two spirits of opposing forces have been let loose into the world, and this is where Lynch and Frost may be tipping their hat toward a conversation on the origin of good versus evil. The Biblical God versus Satan narrative is usually the most commonly referred to the root of these undefinable terms, but we're talking Twin Peaks now, so of course, what better way to depict the source of the struggle than Laura versus Bob. While this is a reading and not fact, it's hard to ignore the themes and works that Lynch has delved into in the past, including the original run of the show.

Twin Peaks has always been about more than Laura Palmer. In fact, if Lynch and Frost had their way in the original run of the series, we still wouldn't know who killed the prom queen because it was just the catalyst to analyze what fascinates Lynch most: Americana. From Blue Velvet to Inland Empire, Lynch has always seemed enamored with the idea that evil is lurking just underneath a white picket fence, and often that evil has been there for longer than we can imagine. In this episode, we get just that, evil and good being born, perhaps not into the entire world, but into the town of Twin Peaks. Again, this will probably never be definitively confirmed or denied, but as a viewer who loves what Lynch can do, these are the types of conversations that are worth having. This thought carries through into the episode's final and terrifying moments, as a Charcoal Man terrorizes a small New Mexico town. Asking for a light for his cigarette, the man just obliterates a radio D.J. and their receptionist to give an incoherent monologue. Meanwhile, a young teen couple exchanges their ideas of love for one another, only to have a small bug crawl into the girl's head and start something nefarious. 

Again, these are primal discussions happening here, leaving a majority of the dissection up to interpretation, as garish as that might sound to some. However, I found this stark departure actually welcome because it accomplishes what I've always loved about Twin Peaks and Lynch's work in general. It uses art to start conversations and ideas, but never feels too self-important to act as if it has the right answer. I'll especially take more of this week and last week if it means less of Dougie throwing his thumb and peeing his pants while Naomi Watts yells at him.

Hello Paul, first of all I hope you're fine. Your website is really AMAZING, I've got too many Maxi Single in Vinyl in mind conditions since I was 12 years old, I've always loved music and remixes, I'm from Venezuela and it is too difficult to make donations from here because of the exchange control policies. You deserve a big donation for this wonderful job. As soon as I can leave this country I'm going to donate all my vinyls to you.

          News In Brief    

President Francesco Cossiga asked Prime Minister Bettino Craxi to form a new government yesterday, four days after he resigned as prime minister. Politicians expect him to resurrect the same coalition that fell apart over the Achille Lauro hijacking. Hopes for a solution to the latest of many government crises in postwar Italy apparently boosted prices on the Milan Stock Exchange. Shares regained two-thirds of the 6 percent they lost after Mr. Craxi's resignation.

The success of Craxi's effort appeared to depend largely on his talks with Defense Minister Giovanni Spadolini's Republican Party, which precipitated the collapse by withdrawing its three ministers from the Cabinet.

All previous partners but the Republicans have said they would join a new Craxi government. The Republicans set conditions that include closer consultation during times of crisis and clear definition of foreign policy, particularly on the US and the Mideast.

The Republicans quit over the decision to release PLO official Muhammad Abbas, whom the US accuses of masterminding the hijacking.

Mr. Cossiga's decision followed three days of consultations with leaders of the five political parties in the former coalition.

Craxi's aides said they expect the makeup of a new government to emerge by Thursday, when Craxi is to go to New York for a meeting of Western leaders called by President Reagan to discuss his November summit with the Soviet leader, Mikhail S. Gorbachev.

Politicians saw the Republican Party's move as a face-saving gesture in response to widespread criticism by the other coalition partners of its decision to quit. Public opinion polls showed general approval of how the government handled the hijacking.

Antigovernment protesters fired on in downtown Manila

Police yesterday fired on antigovernment demonstrators in downtown Manila who resisted police efforts to disperse them. Hospitals said a 17-year-old demonstrator was killed, and the official news agency said 27 people were wounded. The clash came after 3,000 protesters, mostly from farm groups, demonstrated peacefully in front of the US Embassy and were moving toward a downtown plaza.

The march was organized to protest government economic policies and US support for President Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Mr. Marcos ordered an immediate investigation of the violence, a palace news release said. The National Assembly will also investigating.

16 foes of apartheid plead not guilty in treason case

Sixteen leading opponents of South Africa's apartheid race laws pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of high treason, which can carry the death penalty. The accused, including senior leaders of the main internal anti-apartheid group, the United Democratic Front, also pleaded not guilty to alternative charges of furthering the aims of unlawful organizations, and terrorism.

Much of the evidence against them is based on speeches they made and songs they asked crowds to sing at meetings.

The trial formally opened in May, but defense lawyers have been battling for months to get more details from the government on how the accused were alleged to have acted treasonably.

Nicaraguan chief accuses US of `state terrorism'

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega accused the United States yesterday of ``state terrorism'' and said the state of emergency in his country will be suspended when the US stops its ``policy of aggression.'' Nicaragua last week imposed new restrictions on freedom of speech, travel, and assembly, the right to strike, and protection of privacy in the home and the mails.

Supreme Court to adjudge airline policy on handicapped

The Supreme Court set the stage yesterday for an important ruling on rights of handicapped people. The justices said they will review a ruling, challenged by the Reagan administration, that the government must guarantee the rights of handicapped air travelers. A decision is expected by July.

In other cases, the court:

Set the stage for a potentially sweeping ruling over whether property owners are entitled to be compensated when local governments prevent land development.

Agreed to decide what evidence is needed to support search warrants authorizing seizure of allegedly obscene movies.

Agreed to resolve a dispute the government says could force it to guarantee billions of additional dollars in bank-provided credit.

US withholding nuclear data about China, Cranston claims

Sen. Alan Cranston (D) of California, objecting to President Reagan's proposed nuclear cooperation agreement with China, charged yesterday that the administration has ``withheld, suppressed, and covered up information'' about Peking's role in spreading nuclear material. In a Senate floor speech, Senator Cranston said China has had either negotiations or nuclear trade with five ``nuclear outlaw'' nations that are developing atomic weapons programs.

Major tax hike needed to cut federal deficit, Stockman says

A major tax increase is necessary to reduce the federal deficit, preferably a value-added tax, former Budget Director David Stockman said Monday. In the five years of the Reagan presidency, great strides have been made in reducing the growth of federal spending, but the deficit remains a major threat to the nation, Mr. Stockman told the annual convention of the Food Marketing Institute.

US and USSR break off talks on resuming direct air links

The United States and the Soviet Union have broken off negotiations to resume direct air travel between the two countries in a dispute over giving Pan Am, the American carrier, a ``fair share'' of the market, State Department officials said yesterday. No date was set for a resumption, making it virtually impossible that an agreement could be reached in time for President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to sign at their summit meeting in November.

Sanctions on South Africa satisfy Commonwealth chiefs

Commonwealth leaders who wanted Britain and its former colonies to impose strong sanctions against South Africa said Monday they were satisfied by agreement over a less-stringent compromise package. The 49-nation group, whose meeting ends today, emerged late Sunday from five days of closed-door negotiating with a package of limited economic sanctions.

The accord provides for a nine-point package of immediate sanctions. Most of the measures, such as bans on arms and oil sales, nuclear cooperation, and discouraging cultural and scientific contact, have been enforced by many nations for years.

String of fires quenched in southern California

A week after brush fires cut a swath across more than 100,000 acres of southern California canyons under the lash of Santa Ana winds, the last of more than 20 blazes has been controlled. One man was killed, 21 homes burned, and at least six firefighters injured in the fires that began last Monday, many of them believed ignited by arsonists.

A photograph that appeared on Page 7 of the Monitor's Oct. 9 issue was incorrectly identified as one of Panamanian General Noriega. The original UPI photo was miscaptioned, and the man pictured is Gen. Rub'en Dario Par'edes.

          Senator Harris Statement on the Fifth Anniversary of DACA   

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris

[caption id="attachment_51452" align="alignright" width="300"]U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris[/caption] WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris released the following statement on the fifth anniversary of President Barack Obama authorizing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:
“DACA recipients remind us of the strength that comes from diversity, and that our nation remains one shaped by the contributions of immigrants as it has from the very beginning. They serve in our military, work in Fortune 100 companies, conduct important medical research, and are thriving across the country in colleges and universities.
“This anniversary is also a reminder of the deep uncertainty and fear felt by DACA recipients as the Administration continues to expand President Trump’s deportation force. In order to receive DACA, these young individuals underwent extensive vetting by the federal government, including submitting detailed personal information about themselves and their loved ones. In exchange, their government promised to protect them, and yet we have seen DACA recipients arrested, detained, and even deported under this Administration.
“With one in three DACA recipients living in California, we have an outsized stake in ensuring the continuation of this program. I remain committed to holding the Administration accountable to honor the United States government’s promise to protect them, and to ensure that these young DREAMers are able to live, work, learn and thrive in the only nation they call home.”

Strategically Unveiling Potential Revenue Streams for your Company’s

Bottom Line

Customer “Push Back Terms” are becoming more atrocious with their delayed payment tactics and are being forced down our company’s proverbial throats more frequently.  How much do these delayed payments affect your bottom line? How do you renegotiate so that your credit team doesn’t have to strain B2B relations and impact sales? What about 3rd party finance companies offering descending early pay options--are these viable in exchange for waiting 90 or 120 days for funds?  Does your company offer volume ‘rebates’ or early pay ‘discount’ programs?  Do your customers abuse the programs by taking unauthorized deductions? We will review the latest 'push back' terms and discuss the actual costs of accepting those terms and how to use these bottom line costs to get your upper management's attention. We’ll also dissect the real costs of rebate programs versus cash discounting, by sharing an innovative early pay program that promotes sales, increases cash flow and transforms your credit department into a revenue center.

          Comment on Moveable Feast Cafe 2017/06/28 … Open Thread by Ivan Haste   
Dear guest at the Cafe, and the handsome waiter -- I need something strong (a shot of vodka or two), then settle down with a cup of expresso and some nice conversation! Breaking news: It seems that NATO has decided the recent cyber-attack is sufficient for invoking Article 5 (the Musketeer Oath - attack on one is an attack on all). The reasons, as is stated, is the "work of a state power" - though they have been very careful not to name this state! We have, in the past year or so, seen crazy accusations about "russian hackers." This is dangerous, very dangerous! Obombo authorized use of force (at a cyber-level), and even it if has not (yet) been inacted, it still holds! If the United $nakes really do launch an attack, it surely will receive a blow-back! The vasals of U$ will not refrain from acting, on orders from the "Overlords" from across the Ocean! Germany, who might have another agenda, has no say - they are defacto occupied. France is the only power left with the potential to resist, but not with Macron at the helm (Oh, where is de Gaule when we need him?) Look at the evidence, who benefited from the cyber-attack? Who was not affected? Yes, that's right! The U$ and Israhell! There might have been some small nuisance, but nothing major. Russia, on the other hand, was hit (easily repaired, but still). The other possible culprits - China or North Korea - did not stand to gain anything! Danger Alert!! Big Time!! If they launch an attack on Russia with a full scale Cyber Attack, there will be a severe and serious counter attack - naturally, in defence and with the aim of precluding further disruption and attack! This can get very ugly with alarming speed and intensity! Hopefully sane minds will prevail (knowing the 'intelligence' ruling the Hegemon, there is seriously doubt), but soon such digital attacks can (will) turn into use of real weapons! How long will a full scale lethal exchange of force last, before someone, either misguided that it's possible or because it's the only option left, decide to launch Thermonuclear weapons?? I know, it might be that I scream 'wolf' when it all is a storm in a glass of water! But, realistically, this might just be the terrible 'foreplay' to the ultimate and final 'orgasm!' Waiter, can I please have another shot of vodka, and some nice music? What about Pink Floyd's album "Wish you were here"?

          RE: Re: Upgrade   
What about a "family pack" idea...I thought I saw that floated around somewhere... "Microsoft tries to copy Apple's OS X 'family pack' idea with Vista" ( ) This is different...here they are saying that you can't use something you already have. Although you can't sit in two places at once, you can use two computers at once, right? Except in the twisted logic of EULA's you don't have the software, it is licensed to you. You're analogy is interesting as licenses often go "per seat" (per user). In this case the upgrade means your "1 seat" XP license is exchanged for a "1 seat" Vista license in return for a $100 discount. Edit: "not spend any money, stay with what works" I strongly agree with this BTW.Edited 2007-01-30 18:57
          Blah blah blah   
Vista this, Vista that and, in less than a year, no one will remember this and I'll be giving helpdesk services to Vista-equipped clients. It always happens when a new version of Windows arrives: "I won't use that crap!!1 Win2k FTW!!three!" "It's even more bloated" "Remember Windows Me? This is the same, but even worse" And so on. Give it a few months, wait for the 3D drivers and Crysis and everything will be OK for about 95% of the people. The rest will keep using MacOS and/or GNU/Linux. No matter how much people likes to hate MS and Windows, they always end up using it; only a small amount of people gets fed up and moves to a different platform. And I must admit I find extremely amusing the fact that everyone is yelling "What?! You licence it to me?! You mean, like, it's not mine??!!" Go on and check pretty much every EULA out there and you'll find that they can revoke your licence and therefore your permission to use the software pretty much at any time they want. And, for the Vista upgrade, you must understand that you're exchanging your XP licence to get a Vista one for less money. This looks perfectly normal to me...

          Want to Avoid Holiday Stress?   

Holiday stress relief massage relax massage therapy unwind stress-free

Endless shopping mall traffic.  Long, winding lines at every retail location.  Harried postal workers.  Impossibly-long to-do lists.  ‘Tis the season indeed.  In an otherwise lovely season of joy and giving, holiday stress can sometimes sneak its way into our best intentions and get the better of us.  And while you really want to be sipping hot tea and watching the snow fall, you’re instead frantically tracking your online shopping deliveries and fake-smiling your way through an acquaintance’s ornament exchange party (your 3rd this month). 

 

It’s no secret that stress is not kind to the body.  Ongoing stress can disrupt your sleep, compromise your immune system, raise your blood pressure, and cause headaches, not to mention what it does to your muscles and tendons.  If you need some stress-handling tips, pronto, we’ve got some great ideas for you to use right away.

 

  • Sniff some citrus.  If you’ve always loved the scent of oranges, lemons, limes, or grapefruits, it’s for good reason.  Research has shown that some citrus scents can raise norepinephrine, a mood-boosting hormone.  You can get your aromatherapy fix by snacking on plenty of the healthy fruits, of course.  Otherwise, you can experiment with essential oils.  You can make your own room spray or body spray (recipe idea here http://helloglow.co/natural-air-freshener/), or use an essential oil diffuser in your home.  

 

  • Hit the road – on your feet, that is.  The rhythm of your footsteps during a brisk walk can have a meditative affect, and help you mull things over in a different, more relaxed way.  Not only that, the dose of vitamin D you’ll get from being outside, no matter how weak that winter sun is, will serve as a mood and energy booster as well. 

 

  • Less is more.  Less shopping, fewer social gatherings, and more calm quiet can greatly reduce your perceived stress level.  Be okay with RSVP’ing a polite “no, thank you” to a couple of your less-loved holiday season invites.  And then, that night, when you’re relaxing on your couch with your comfy clothes on, you’ll be oh-so happy you did. 

 

  • Change it up.  If your yearly neighborly kindness act of baking loaves of bread for your entire cul-de-sac (or co-workers, or church group) is feeling a little burdensome this year, feel free to change it up.  There’s no shame in swapping out the homemade for a tasty store-bought snack.   Or, instead of spending hours baking, cooling, and packaging your treats, consider a quick impromptu coffee hour gathering.  Face-to-face time with your friends can be the best stress-buster around.

 

  • Get those knots out.  Keeping up with regular massages during the holiday season can do wonders for your stress level.  Your massage therapist will work to soothe, smooth, and lengthen muscles that get so easily knotted up by stress and tension.  If your shoulders aren’t all bunched up and tight, you’ll feel better mentally as well as physically.  Plus, massage helps to combat anxiety and stress at its root – your brain.  Massage can release stress-busting hormones that can make us feel better almost instantly after lying down on the massage table.

 

As you’re rushing around, focusing on the gifts and kindness you can bring to others this holiday season, don’t forget to lavish some kindness on yourself, too.  You deserve it, and after taking care of yourself you’ll even more energy to spend with your loved ones, celebrating what these holidays are truly about.

          Pattern-Graded Races – A Guide To Betting   
Pattern-Graded Races Pattern-Graded races usually provide much stronger liquidity in the betting markets compared to other races due to the fact they contain the best horses and a larger proportion of the betting public that like a flutter on horse racing are naturally attracted to betting on the better races. You only have to look on the exchanges to see how much is being bet shortly before the race commences to get a better idea of how robust these markets can be, which means you can be accommodated to better stakes than you would on your normal day to day race.

A Candy Proposal

For preventing the upload of applications that damage the brand of large companies.

by Marcel Baarsch - Independent Software Developer



It is a woeful sight to those, who consume multiple forms of media on the internet, when they see the applications market crowded with applications that mimic those of higher quality in order to confuse them. This leaves substantial companies that develop content for mass consumption in danger of losing a small portion of it’s potential user base and suffering a slight decrease in their massive revenue. The employees of these companies instead of being able to work for their honest living are forced to employ their time in browsing online forums to beg for other software development opportunities or even offer up hacking skills in exchange for bitcoin.

I think it is agreed by large corporations and lawyers, that this monumental number of applications that damage the brand of large companies is representative of the pitiful state of the free market. Therefore, whomever can find a fair and easy method for protecting the brand of immense companies would deserve as to have his statue set of as a preserver of this market.

As for my own part, having observed the  ineffectiveness of the trademarking of entire titles, I humbly propose that large companies should be allowed to trademark single common words involved in their titles such as “candy” or “saga” and should posses the right to, through the use of legal threats, kindly ask any developer using those trademarked words to remove their application from the market. In fact, these companies should be assigned large portions of the dictionary for which they can sue any other developer using words found in their portion of the dictionary. To further the security of these brands, any small developer who infrindges on these newly assigned trademarks must surrender their application into the posession of the trademark holder so that the trademark holder may market this application as their own if they choose to do so. Afterwards, the holder of the trademark may execute the infrindging developer and use their remains to fertizile plants located on the trademark holder's property.

          New 2018 Trek Emonda SLR & SL - Ten Things to Know    
New 2018 Trek Emonda SLR & SL - Ten Things to Know

What better place to announce a new road bike then the start of the world’s largest cycling event. Today Trek has announced its greatly anticipated update of the lightweight Emonda.

The new 2018 Emonda takes what was one of the lightest production bikes on earth and makes it lighter, stiffer and more compliant than before (and adds a disc brake option). This is a bike built for conquering mountains and making those that pick it up giggle with envy.

The Emonda fits the profile of a traditional road racing bike or that of a ‘general classification bike’ (what you’d expect a yellow jersey contender to be riding). Want to know how a bike like the Emonda stacks up against an endurance or aero road bike? We’ve got a video guide for that.

1. Lighter than yours

6i90e0ndcpdzfwbhkz2ezfmzq-jpg

When the original Emonda was announced exactly three years ago, it was pitched as the world’s lightest production bike. For example, the previous model Emonda SLR 10 is claimed to weigh an amazing 4.6kg (10.25lb) with its 690g frame (56cm size). And yet, the 2018 Emonda SLR frame is lighter again.

The new Emonda SLR (rim brake) manages to shave 50 grams off its predecessor. It’s a figure that may not sound like much, but relatively speaking, it’s a big number. The new disc-brake frame is not far off either, with a claimed weight of 665 grams it's just 15 grams more than the rim brake version. The new Emonda SLR fork weighs just 313g, with the disc version at 350g.

Trek has achieved this by using a new 700 Series OCLV Carbon lay-up (Emonda SLR only) and by finely analyzing its use in a frame size specific approach (more on this later), something that is said to provide best-in-class stiffness to weight ratio.

2. No IsoSpeed, No Aero Claims

Helping to achieve such a low weight, the Emonda makes no claim of aero gains, instead, it’s a focused approach to weight, ride quality and stiffness.

Likewise, Trek’s IsoSpeed pivot technology designed to found on its Domane and Madone road bikes is nowhere to be seen on the flyweight Emonda. The pivoting technology is often praised for its ability to smooth the road through controlled frame flex, but it’s a system that would prevent Trek from achieving its best-in-class stiffness to weight ratio goal for the Emonda.

3. It’s Stiffer

5qzzpng0gckwn-nha1hyweyak-jpg

That new carbon layup means the frame is not just lighter, it’s stiffer too. Both bottom bracket and headtube stiffness numbers are improved, with the rim brake version edging out the disc brake version.

4. It’s more Compliant

Traditionally an improved stiffness to weight ratio comes at the cost of ride comfort, but advances in carbon fiber layups and frame design has that all changing. The new Emonda claims to be more compliant than the previous version and with room for wider tires too.

5. Two levels, the SLR, and the SL

The Emonda will be available in two distinct levels, the SLR, and the SL, using 700 Series OCLV Carbon and 500 Series OCLV carbon respectively.

The cheaper SL frame is a near visual replica of the premium SLR, however, its lower grade carbon sees the weight increase somewhat. Trek state the new Emonda SL frame weights 1,091g, with the disc version at 1,149g. The SL fork is the same superlight offering as found on the SLR bikes, however, cheaper Emonda SL 5 options will feature a heavier fork, adding just over 100g.

6. Disc or Rim, choice is yours

pmoskvervgdv6poqqdol-knyg-jpg

Further proving the industry is fully committed to providing race-level disc brake bikes, the Emonda SLR and SL will be available in both disc brake and rim brake options.

Looking to the lighter rim brake offering, the new Emonda uses a direct-mount brake system. In the case of SLR models, a new ‘Bontrager Speed Stop Pro’ brake caliper will be provided. These brakes feature hollow arms, titanium hardware and are said to help increase tire clearance. Impressively, they’re claimed to weigh just 95g a piece.

Seeking the all-weather control of disc brakes? The Emonda disc version features flat mount calipers and 12mm thru-axles.

7. Space for 28c Rubber

Tyre clearance is fast becoming a key feature in a race bike, and the new Emonda doesn’t disappoint. There’s space provided for 28c tires across all models, including rim and disc brake options.

8. Size specific design

8jadwrr6opmw2v9-r7s5ydtzy-jpg

“Size-Specific Ride-Tuned performance”, that’s what Trek is calling its design and engineering approach that ensures ride quality is kept equal, regardless of frame size.

While not specific to Trek, in the past, brands typically started with a 56cm frame design and then adjusted it for bigger and smaller frames from there. As a result, smaller frames often offered greater stiffness under power but also rode with greater harshness when compared to larger offerings. In reverse of this, larger frame sizes were typically far heavier in an attempt to match stiffness, or in other cases, they were left a little noodly to keep weight low. It was fairly typical across a number of brands and it’s something Trek is clearly taking a very considered approach to overcome.

Trek’s Size-Specific design approach sees each frame size run through a myriad of computer simulation, lab and real-world tests and processes to ensure the mold design and lay-up is being used as efficiently and effectively in all frame sizes, and that the final product provides the intended ride experience.

9. Geometry options

Trek has long been one of the few companies to offer its road bikes in a choice of geometry options. This continues for the Emonda, with options of ‘H1’ or ‘H2’ fit bikes and framesets still provided.

Offered only at the SLR level, H1 fit is designed for the pros and more aggressive riders. It offers a lower stack height and increased reach. It means riders seeking a low position aren’t forced to use steeply angled stems or make compromises to their positions.

Also available in the Emonda SLR, and the only option if you’re looking at the SL, Trek’s H2 fit is closer to the geometry of most other bikes on that market. It features an increased stack and shortened reach which helps to provide greater comfort and efficiency for those that sit at a desk or just generally work during the week.

The women’s-specific Emonda features the same H2 fit frame as the uni-sex offerings, with the touch-points modified for a more precise fit.

10. American models and pricing

The following models of Emonda are being brought into the US. Bikes should be rolling onto floors of your local Trek dealers from August.

Model US MSRP
Émonda SLR 9 $11,000
Émonda SLR 8 Disc $7,000

Émonda SL 6 Pro TBD
Émonda SL 6 $2,500
Émonda SL 5 $2,000
Émonda SL 5 Women's $2,000

The Trek Emonda is not the only new bike being released in time to be ridden at the 2017 Tour de France, with the BMC Teammachine SLR, Specialized Tarmac, Cervelo R5 and Merida Reacto all being announced too.

          New 2018 Specialized Epic - Ten Things to Know   
New 2018 Specialized Epic - Ten Things to Know

Whether it's at a cross country world cup, marathon race or multi-day stage race, it’s rare not to find a Specialized Epic and it’s owner on the podium. This was the first cross country full suspension platform to be ridden to a World Championship win, and has seen plenty of accolades since. For 2018, the Epic gets lighter, faster and a little smarter too, here are ten things to know about this cross country race weapon.

1. Lessons learned from the Epic Hardtail

First seen on the new Specialized Epic Hardtail released in 2016, the new Epic benefits from big advancements in carbon lay-ups and geometry better suited to tackle the forever more challenging courses.

The carbon lay-up improvements are perhaps the benefit of having legendary carbon bicycle engineer, Peter Denk, on staff. The Epic Hardtail was Denk’s first bike for Specialized and has no doubt played a helping hand in all carbon models released since.

2. No more Era, the Epic is for all

uqth-mme0s0rsibmtbv-32ec8-jpg

As seen earlier today with the release of the new Tarmac, Specialized’s research of over 40,000 digital fit points through its partnership with Retul has shown that there’s not as much difference in fit between men and women as first thought.

As a result, Specialized is moving away from women’s specific frames and instead will offer one frame design for both genders. That’s not to say women’s-specific bikes are done though, as Specialized will continue to offer Women’s Epics with gender-specific contact points and suspension tunes designed to give a better ride experience straight from the shop floor.

3. A Smarter Brain

u-qzkvhk5mv0mvohyhdtye8di-jpg

One of the key aspects to the Epic’s success over all these years has been its auto-locking Brain suspension. This suspension remains locked out and firm until an impact from the wheels releases it. It’s a system that’s been well proven for its efficiency until the furious pedaling of cross country and marathon racing.

For 2018, the new Epic gets a ‘Brain 2.0’, made in collaboration with RockShox, it’s designed to be even more reactive and smoother than its predecessor. The new Brain sits closer to the rear axle (actually mounts underneath) for improved bump responsiveness. There’s also an updated oil flow path for more consistent damping performance.

lrwiuukm2zemfthzucvtj4pdy-jpg

4. A Lighter Frame

With a new carbon layup and a new mold, the 2018 Epic sees some significant weight removed. Specialized hasn’t published a number for the S-Works frame (using FACT 12m carbon), but claims the Pro, Expert and Comp Carbon frame below (FACT 11m carbon), saves up to 525 grams (size dependent).

5. Geometry Refined

Sticking with 29er wheels across all frame sizes, the new Epic features geometry that’s more aggressive than before. All four frame sizes on offer now feature a 69.5 degree head angle, one degree steeper than the previous Epic.

The frame’s stack is now slightly shorter and there’s a longer reach too. The chainstays now 10mm shorter too, down to 438mm across all sizes.

6. Custom Fork Offset

With the head angle slackening out and the reach growing, Specialized has taken a bold step and created its own custom fork offset. Interestingly, this arguably goes in the opposite direction of most 29ers, with less offset being chosen.

As a result, the new Epic features a fork with 42mm offset, something creates a higher trail number (94mm). That’s 10mm more than the previous Epic. On paper, this should give the bike an impressive straight-line stability but may come at the cost of agility. It’s something we’re eager to test out ourselves.

Learn more about fork offset and trail in our complete guide to bicycle geometry (sorry, it can be a dry read!).

7. Threaded Bottom Bracket, 30.9mm Seatpost

Sometimes it’s the small details that are the most impressive. For example, the new Epic goes back to a threaded bottom bracket shell. This ensures easy serviceability and creak-free riding without having to resort to expensive bottom bracket bearing designs.

Likewise, the new Epic makes use of a relatively common 30.9mm seatpost, with the obvious benefit being that it’s ready to accept a dropper seatpost.

8. Still Room for Two

pwpyd-akkax9kp2w3jpjerab8-jpg

The last iteration of the Epic was one of the first full suspension mountain bikes to allow the easy carrying of two water bottles. The new Epic continues this and is well ready to continue Specialized’s war against hydration packs.

9. There’s an Alloy Version

In addition to the S-Works FACT 12m and FACT 11m frames, budget-conscious racers will be pleased to hear that an alloy version of the Epic will be offered too. Made from Specialized’s M5 premium aluminium with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, the new metal frame benefits from the same improvements in geometry and suspension.

10. Pricing and availability

Below is the expected American range and prices. Exact time of arrival for these bikes is yet to be confirmed.

  • S-Works Epic XX1 Eagle – $10,100 (Men’s and Women’s available)
  • S-Works Epic Frameset & Fork – $3,000
  • Epic Expert – $5,200 (Men’s only)
  • Epic Comp Carbon – $4,000 (Men’s and Women’s available)
  • Epic Comp (Alloy) – $2,900 (Men’s only)

With the new Epic so near, why not find yourself a bargain on a 2017 cross country race bike? The BikeExchange marketplace has a number of amazing deals on previous year Specialized Epic’s from across the country.

          New 2018 Merida Reacto III - Top Things to Know   
New 2018 Merida Reacto III - Top Things to Know

For 2018, Merida has just announced the third iteration of this well-rounded aero road bike, the Reacto III. Improving on the previous version that earned praise thanks to its wind tunnel test results and ability to smooth out rough roads, the Reacto III looks set to keep up with the fast developing market. It's a bike that will be seen in use with Bahrain Merida’s Tour de France debut. Here are ten things to know.

Not sure if an aero road bike is right for you? Watch and read our guide to how Aero road bikes stack up against traditional race and endurance road bikes.

1. Similar profile to the last

From a distance, the new Reacto looks much like its predecessor (unless you’re looking at the disc version!), and that’s because in many ways it is. The sculpted seattube and lowly-set seatstays remain, as does the deep aero S-Flex seatpost. Likewise, Merida sticks with its NACA Fastback profiles on many of the frame’s tubes for cheating the wind.

However, take a closer look at some subtle exterior differences appear. The downtube shape is slimmer, the seatstay connection is lower and obviously, there’s that one-piece cockpit setup too. All told, Merida claims a 5% improvement in aerodynamics compared to the previous Reacto.

2. Two frame levels, two geometries

wx5u3oqfu5e7mf1st_mtzh_lm-jpg

The new Reacto is available in two levels of frame, the premium CF4 and the CF2, each with differing geometry.

Sitting as the top-end option, the CF4 frame uses a premium carbon fiber layup and hosts a number of subtle features that help it to be a little faster. Most notably, the CF4 frame features a more aggressive geometry that’s well suited to the racers. In fact, the stack height is lower and the head angle steeper when compared to the previous Reacto. The bottom bracket height has been dropped 5mm too.

The more affordable Reacto bikes make use of the CF2 frame, something that’s a little heavier and also features a more relaxed geometry when compared to the CF4. Here, the head tube angles are relaxed by half a degree, the stack sits over 20mm higher and the reach is also subtly shorter.

3. Lighter, faster, smoother

It wouldn’t be the bike industry without such claims, and Merida certainly hasn’t disappointed in improving the most obvious metrics.

While frame stiffness is said to be kept the same as the previous version, the weight is drastically different, 18.5% less for the entire frameset in fact. Including frame, fork, headset, seatpost and seatpost clamp, the previous Reacto weighed 2,046g, with the new at 1,695g.

Looking at the specifics (sizes unknown), the new CF4 rim brake frame and fork together weigh a claimed 1,368g. The CF4 Disc version adds just 60g to the figure.

Featuring a few subtle differences, namely a cheaper carbon fibre lay-up, the CF2 rim brake frame and fork weigh a claimed 1,500g together, with the disc brake version adding 97g.

The weight loss, achieved through slimmer tubes and a new carbon layup, hasn’t come at the cost of ride comfort. With the lower set seatstays and an updated seatpost said to provide a bike that’s approximately 10% smoother.

4. Disc and rim brake options

merida-reacto-3-2018-10-things-to-know-10-1-jpg

It seems fewer and fewer road racing bikes are being released without a disc-brake option, and the new Reacto is no exception. While all models will remain available with a direct-mount rim brake option, a large number of models will also be available in a disc-brake version (disc versions are sadly not being brought into Australia).

The disc brake versions feature flat-mount calipers, 12mm thru-axles and 160mm rotors front and rear.

5. Borrowed from the Scultura Disc

First seen with last year’s Merida Scultura Disc road bike, the Reacto Disc makes use of the same clever disc cooling system. These aluminium fins that sit on the fork and left chainstay help direct air into the brake calipers and rotors, and are said to reduce temperatures by around 35%.

6. Tricky Thu-Axles for the Disc

merida-reacto-3-2018-10-things-to-know-11-1-jpg

Where the rim brake versions stick with tried-and-trued quick releases, the disc versions make use of 12mm thru-axles front and rear. Interestingly, the CF4-level bikes receive the fast ‘R.A.T’ system, something designed to aid speedy wheel changes in a race situation.

This ‘Rapid Axle Technology’ (R.A.T) system was originally conceived by Focus Bikes and offers a clever keyed system that requires a flick of the quick lever and then quarter turn to undo, not the full unwinding of a more common threaded thru-axle system (something the CF2 Disc bikes make use of).

7. Tire clearance

merida-reacto-3-2018-10-things-to-know-2-jpg

Tires are forever getting wider as research has proven narrower isn’t always faster. Where some bikes are touting space for 28 or even 30c tires, Merida has kept the new Reacto a little more conservative and promises easy fitting of 25c tires on both the rim and disc-equipped versions.

8. Integrated cockpit

merida-reacto-3-2018-10-things-to-know-3-jpg

Integrated cockpits have become a popular pick on the latest aero road bikes, and smoothing out the front of the bike just makes sense when looking to fully optimize aerodynamics.

Where we’ve seen brands such as Trek, Specialized, Canyon and others go to the efforts of designing such an integrated handlebar and stem in-house, Merida instead reached out to a long-time component partner to refine a proven product.

As a result, the CF4-level Reactos will feature a one-piece carbon handlebar and stem that’s a close match to FSA’s Metron 5D. A special headset cone spacer has been supplied for a smooth, integrated fit with this cockpit setup.

The CF2 bikes will stick with a more traditional stem and handlebar, as is often the case on more affordable aero road bikes.

9. S-Flex seatpost gets better

Merida’s comfort adding S-Flex seatpost that features a flexible design and a small vibration-dampening rubber insert gets a small makeover. The design has been in use since 2012 and for 2018 will offer more comfort at a lower weight (94g saved).

The CF4-level bikes will feature a 206g fixed-offset version, while the cheaper CF2 framed bikes will use a flip-able head design that offers 0-15mm fore-aft saddle adjustment.

The seatposts are interchangeable between frames and Merida will offer the lighter fixed seatpost in either 15 or 25mm offset versions.

          New 2018 Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 – Ten Things to Know   
New 2018 Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 – Ten Things to Know

Specialized has been busy over the past 12 months, already launching five new bikes for 2017; the Diverage, CruX and Allez, adding to the new Roubaix, Ruby and Venge Disc it launched last year.

Not content with that impressive line-up of new bikes, Specialized has now revamped its pure high-performance road bike, the Tarmac and created it's own power meter to go along with it.

We've broken down the top ten things you need to know about the new S-Works Tarmac and power meter from Specialized.

1. "Nothing is lighter, faster or better handling."

When creating a new Tarmac, Specialized's goal wasn't modest. Its aim was to create a bike that was lighter, faster and better handling than anything else currently on the road. In order to do so, they shed a large amount of weight from the previous iteration, made it more aero, improved compliance, and refined the handling.

2. Rider Shared Platform

specialized-womens-s-works-tarmac-2018-ten-things-to-know-jpg

Specialized has accumulated a plethora of data from literally thousands of bike fittings (40,000 digital fit points to be exact) care of Retul, one of the most accurate and comprehensive bike fit systems on the market. The data has driven Specialized's approach of the shared platform whereby the carbon used, it's lay-up, and geometry is the same for men and women. As such, the Tarmac and Amira bikes have virtually merged into the one high-performance road bike that provides the same experience for both.

Specialized do however offer the Tarmac in both men's and women's versions, the difference being the three key touch points - handlebars, seat, and cranks. The women's bikes will have handlebars that are either one or two sizes smaller (i.e. from 42cm to either 40cm or 38cm), cranks that are 2.5mm shorter (i.e. 172.5mm to 170mm) and female specific saddles that feature wider contact points for wider sit bones, a broader overall shape to account for wider hips and a cut-out channel to alleviate pressure on soft tissues, improving blood flow and preventing numbness.

3. It's Aero

specialized-tarmac-dropped-seatstays-2018-ten-things-to-know-jpg

One of the most notable changes between the new and old Tarmac is the dropped seatstays. Specialized says this small change has resulted in big aerodynamic gains, removing the stagnant air from around the previously higher positioned seatstays and improving overall airflow and reducing drag. The SL6 is said to be 45 seconds faster over a distance of 40kph (at an average speed of 40kph) than other lightweight bikes in the same weight category.

Contributing to the aerodynamics gains is the reshaped downtube that features a more rounded leading edge to improve airflow, a truncated airfoil fork with far less volume that reduces turbulent air and increases tire clearance at the same time and new cable ports on the front of the bike that also creates a super clean front end. Specialized went through over 1,200 prototypes to finally settle on the new shape.

4. Weight Weenies rejoice

specialized-tarmac-2018-ten-things-to-know-3-jpg

The aerodynamic gains are substantial but if aero was everything you'd be more interested in the Specialized Venge than the versatile Tarmac. As such, many of you are probably wondering if the latest iteration has been slimmed down. And the answer is a big yes!

A 56cm SL6 Tarmac frame weighs in at 733g, a whopping 200g or almost 20% lighter than the previous Tarmac. And that figure can be further reduced by opting for the proprietary "Ultralight paint" process, which adds only 10g to the bare frame. Such a special paint will only be available at launch, with just a limited run of 500 bikes featuring that special coating.

5. Braking options

One of the biggest surprises regarding the launch of the new Tarmac was the absence of a disc brake version. As it stands, the new Tarmac is only being offered as a rim brake version, with no mention of a disc-brake option. The rim-brake version will be equipped with direct mount brakes that offer a sleeker aesthetic, some small aerodynamic gains and more braking strength.

Although there's no official word on a disc-brake option, as with the Venge, we would expect to see it make an eventual appearance. We're speculating that it may be towards the end of this year or start of 2018 when it's likely the use of discs will be given the green light in the WorldTour.

6. D-shaped seat post

specialized-tarmac-2018-rear-profile-ten-things-to-know-jpg

To add comfort and create the most well-rounded bike possible, Specialized has incorporated a proprietary a D-shaped truncated airfoil seatpost that aims to improve compliance and aerodynamics. In addition to lowering the seat clamp to allow more natural flex from the seat post (which increases comfort), the flat edge of the D-shape causes the post to flex in one direction, improving vertical compliance (comfort). Specialized also adjusted the layup to progressively add stiffness as it moved down the length of the seat post.

7. SL5 and SL6

Much like the launch of the new Roubaix and Ruby last year, Specialized will continue to offer the current Tarmac frameset with the latest groupsets in addition to the new range.

The new S-Works Tarmac will be referred to as the SL6, while the current (soon to be previous) version to be known as the SL5.

8. Power meter

specialized-powermeter-2018-ten-things-to-know-jpg

We had seen images of Dan Martin and Peter Sagan riding the new Tarmac prior to its official launch, so it wasn't a huge surprise when details started to emerge, however, news that Specialized would be launching its own power meter was one out of the box.

The new power meter is a dual sided, carbon crankset with +/- 1% accuracy (+/- 1% static; +/- 1.6% real-world) that weighs a total of 440g for 172.5mm cranks. It is powered by two small batteries that are easily replaced with an Allen key and housed inside weatherproof caps. The placement of the non-drive side crank is similar to Stages, 4iii and other single sided options on the market, but the drive-side placement is unique, hidden from view and wedged in between the spider arms for a completely unobtrusive aesthetic.

Specialized claim the carbon-based design provides better temperature regulation and is less likely to drift when moving from cold to hot conditions during your ride.

There is also word that a more cost effective single sided crank based option will be available in the future.

9. The line-up for the US

The S-Works SL6 Tarmac will come in six different colorways, plus a number of limited edition framesets including a World Championship version.

Below is a list of models that will be available in the US with advertised retail prices.

The Tarmac SL6

  • S-Works Tarmac Ultralight Shimano R9150 Di2: US$10,500 MSRP
  • S-Works Tarmac Men/Wmn Shimano R9150 Di2: US$10,000 MSRP
  • S-Works Tarmac Ultralight frameset: US$4,250 MSRP
  • S-Works Tarmac Men/Wmn frameset: US$4,000 MSRP

The Specialized Power meter crankset price is to be confirmed.

10. Availability

The Tarmac will start landing in limited numbers in August with the majority of stock due to land through September and beyond.


The Specialized Tarmac is not the only new bike being released in time to be ridden at the 2017 Tour de France, with the BMC Teammachine SLR, Trek Emonda, Cervelo R5 and Merida Reacto all being announced too. It's like Christmas in July.

          Preview: Your guide to the 2017 Tour de France   
Preview: Your guide to the 2017 Tour de France

The warm-up races are done, new national champions have been crowned, and all is now in readiness. The 2017 Tour de France is just days away. Ahead of the 104th edition of the world’s biggest race we take a look at the route, the key stages, the riders to watch, and how you can follow the race.

The race starts in Germany, and passes through Belgium and Luxembourg on its way to France.

Learn all about the Tour de France, including how the race is won, the points are earned and what the jerseys mean in our Guide to the Tour de France

The 2017 Tour de France starts with a 14km individual time trial in the German city of Dusseldorf. Stage 2 sees the race head into Belgium, with a stage finish in Liege, while stage 3 starts in Verviers, Belgium, passes through Luxembourg and finishes in France. Stage 4 starts in Luxembourg before heading back into France where it remains for the rest of its 21 stages.

Rather than taking in a clockwise or anti-clockwise loop of France, this year’s route is a little different. After a brief visit to the Alps, the Tour heads west then south towards the Pyrenees, before skirting east to hit the Alps again in the final week.

The penultimate stage is an individual time trial in Marseille, on France’s south-east coast, before a long overnight transfer to Paris for the traditional Champs-Elysees finish.

ly4btjmvgtdm84yi7xwiukzve-jpg

It’s the first edition of the Tour de France since 1992 that will feature all five of France’s mountain ranges. In all the riders will cover 3,540km over the Tour’s 21 stages.

There are perhaps six key stages for the GC

When it comes to the battle for overall honors at this year’s Tour, there are a handful of stages that should prove decisive. Stage 5 could well be the first test, thanks to the 5.9km stage-ending ascent to La Planche des Belles Filles, which averages 8.5% but is much steeper at the end. Stage 9 is likely to be an important stage, thanks to plenty of climbing and the Mont du Chat climb in particular.

Used in the Criterium du Dauphine just a couple weeks back, this super-steep climb (8.7km at 10.3%) tore the race apart. The same is likely to happen at the Tour. The descent, too, could have an impact, with its many twists and turns on a very narrow road. The finish is in Chambery, a little further from the bottom of the descent than it was in the Dauphine. A stage to watch for sure.

Stage 12 is a very challenging ride through the Pyrenees with six categorized climbs and an uphill finish to Peyragudes. Stage 17 has four climbs including the Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Telegraphe and the Col du Galibier (the highest point of race). From the top of that final climb it’s 28km downhill to the finish in Serre-Chevalier.

Stage 18 features three climbs, two of them quite lengthy, including the stage-ending Col d’Izoard which is 14.1km at 7.3%. Finally, the stage 20 time trial, while largely flat, could create some time gaps which, depending on how the leaderboard looks, could decide the race overall.

riwtjzks-9vygi0h7cou7a-eq-jpg

Of course, time gaps are possible on just about every stage, such is the unpredictability of bike racing. But if you’ve only got time to watch a few stages of this year’s race, we’d recommend the six mentioned above.

There are arguably three five-star favorites for the race overall

You could argue that, on paper, Richie Porte (BMC) is the man to beat at this year’s Tour de France. He’s had a stellar lead-up, winning the Tour Down Under (including two uphill finishes), the Tour de Romandie, a mountain-top finish at Paris-Nice, and he finished second at the Criterium du Dauphine.

Porte was leading into the final stage of the Dauphine and while he was ultimately beaten by Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), Porte’s tenacious performance throughout the race, especially on the final stage, puts him in good stead. The Tasmanian was isolated at the Dauphine, but believes he’ll have more support at the Tour.

He climbs very well, his time-trialing is excellent (he won the Dauphine ITT). Perhaps Porte’s two biggest weaknesses are his descending (Froome has taken time on him in several big races) and the way he seems to attract bad luck. He had an ill-timed puncture on stage 2 of last year’s Tour which cost him minutes. It’s likely he would have finished on the overall podium were it not for that incident.

“I think I need to avoid the bad luck I had last year”, Porte said when asked by CyclingTips what the key will be for him at this year’s race. Hopefully he can do so and we can see what Porte is truly capable of over three weeks.

4e1_4vfmetdwmm59zoqoelypo-jpg

Chris Froome (Sky) hasn’t had the best season so far. In fact, it’s the first time since 2012 that he’ll start the Tour de France without a win for the season. Froome finished third at the Dauphine, a race he won before all three of his Tour de France victories so far.

But while Froome hasn’t been at his best in 2017, he certainly shouldn’t be written off. His season is built around the Tour, he knows how to win the race, and you can bet he’ll be doing everything to try and secure win #4. And as Froome showed last year with some terrific descending and an unlikely late breakaway on a flat stage, he’s not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to taking time on his rivals.

Nairo Quintana (Movistar) made it clear earlier this year that he was targeting the Giro d’Italia-Tour de France double, with the goal of winning both. He fell short of the first, finishing second to Tom Dumoulin, but the Colombian is a big chance at the Tour.

Quintana has had a good year, with overall wins at the Volta a la Valenciana and Tirreno-Adriatico, including a summit finish win at the latter. In addition to his second overall at the Giro he also won a stage in the mountains. Expect Quintana to feature heavily when the road tilts upwards.

Of particular note is Quintana’s Spanish teammate Alejandro Valverde. More than capable of racing for the overall himself – he was sixth last year — Valverde has said he’s all-in to support Quintana. Few of the GC contenders have such a strong lieutenant as Quintana and you can expect Valverde to finish inside the top 10 again assuming nothing goes hugely wrong.

sfmrbmgtqixhlpoz63on05m9g-jpg

There’s an impressive list of contenders for the top 5 and the top 10

His best might be a few years behind him, but Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) needs to be respected in any Grand Tour he starts. The Spaniard has won the Tour twice before and with a total of of seven Grand Tours to his name, he knows how to race over three weeks.

Contador was second at no fewer than four stage races this year, including Paris-Nice where he put in a phenomenal last-stage performance, attacking from a long way out to try and take the overall win. It’s this fight that makes Contador such a dangerous prospect. Sure, he was off the pace at the Dauphine, but few of the other GC contenders will be willing to give Contador any latitude at the Tour.

It’s worth remembering that Contador has Bauke Mollema for support too. The Dutchman was sitting second overall for six stages of last year’s Tour, before he fell out of contention on stage 19. Mollema is more than capable of a good overall finish himself — he’s been inside the top 10 three times — and will be an important helper for Contador.

Jakob Fuglsang was the big winner at the recent Criterium du Dauphine, claiming two stages and the overall. On the last stage, the Dane was in third, 1:15 behind Porte, but took the opportunity presented to him, rode away from Porte and then the rest of the field to take a memorable win. Worth noting: Fugslang didn’t lose any time to Porte on the race’s final climb with the latter in hot pursuit.

It’s hard to see Fugslang winning the Tour overall. His best GC performance was seventh in 2013 and while he’s on another level now, the riders ahead of him will likely prove too strong over three weeks. Note though that Fugslang is just one of two very strong options for Astana at this year’s Tour …

Fabio Aru has had an interrupted 2017 season with a knee injury forcing him out of the Giro. But the Sardinian has shown impressive form since returning to racing. He was good at the Dauphine, often climbing with the best, and won the Italian road nationals last week with a late solo move. Between he and Fugslang, Astana have some very good cards to play.

French hopes rest on the shoulders of two strong prospects at this year’s race: Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) and Romain Bardet (Ag2r-La Mondiale). Pinot has had an impressive season, courtesy of a stage win at the Ruta del Sol, a stage at the Tour of the Alps and second overall, third overall at Tirreno-Adriatico, and a stage win and fourth overall at the Giro d’Italia. Pinot’s best finish at the Tour was his third overall in the 2014 Tour and while he’ll be hard pressed to replicate or improve on that this year, he should feature in the battle for the top five.

Romain Bardet, too, will find it difficult to match his best Tour performance — second overall last year. He’s had a winless start to the year and his best stage-race finish was sixth at the recent Dauphine. It’s worth noting that Bardet also didn’t take a win before last year’s Tour, but he was second at the Dauphine that time.

Bardet should feature high up on the general classification and is a good prospect of another stage win. He hit the winners’ list in 2015 and 2016 and will be looking to the hard hilly stages to add to those victories.

Orica-Scott has turned itself into a GC team in recent years, thanks to Esteban Chaves and the Yates twins. At the 2017 Tour it will be Chaves and Simon Yates that lead the charge.

Chaves is a real unknown — he didn’t race between the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in February and the Dauphine due to a knee injury, and was well off the pace at the latter event. Simon Yates has had a better season with a stage win at Paris-Nice, victory at GP Miguel Indurain, a stage of Romandie and second overall before finishing 13th at the Dauphine. Yates will be aiming for the white jersey and top 10 overall, both of which seem very achievable.

There are at least eight stages for the sprinters

No race attracts as many good sprinters as the Tour de France and this year’s race provides plenty of opportunities for the fastmen. It’s hard to pick an outright favorite for the sprints, but on paper it’s probably Marcel Kittel (QuickStep Floors).

Kittel has nine wins for the year, the most of any sprinter, and has hit the line first in a stage of five of the six stage races he’s done. He’s a nine-time stage winner at the Tour de France and will be disappointed not to win at least one in 2017. He’ll have a hard time replicating the feat of his younger teammate Fernando Gaviria at the Giro, though, with Gaviria snagging four stages.

qsi43yp9tc0pj2sjpwqlexalg-jpg

Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) has won a stage of the Tour every year since 2011 and certainly won’t want to see that streak end. He’s taken wins at Paris-Nice and the Giro this year, but has arguably been a little off his explosive best. Still, Greipel should win a stage again in 2017.

World champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will be one of the must-watch riders at this year’s Tour, as he is in every race he starts. Not only will the Slovakian be a factor in the flat sprints, he’s also a big chance in the hard uphill sprints, and the unbackable favorite for the points classification.

Sagan has won the green jersey for the past five years and were he to win it this year, he would equal the record held by Erik Zabel, who won green every year from 1996 to 2001.

Sagan has had a good start to 2017 with two stage wins at Tirreno-Adriatico, one at the Amgen Tour of California, and, most recently, two at the Tour de Suisse. He won three stages at last year’s Tour and is more than capable of doing the same again in 2017.

ocv7yxduzuh-uxanyf_3vfih8-jpg

It’s hard to see anyone beating Sagan for the green jersey in 2017.

Despite being discounted by many, Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) dominated the sprints at last year’s Tour, winning a very impressive four stages. This year he’ll be ecstatic if he wins just one — he’s had Epstein-Barr Virus this season and missed three months of racing. He managed to surprise himself by taking a second place at his return race, the Tour of Slovenia, and while the Tour is several levels harder than that, don’t be surprised if the wily Manxman finds a way to take a stage win.

Arnaud Demare (FDJ) won his second French road title last weekend and brings strong form into the Tour. He’s yet to win a stage of his home Grand Tour, but with eight wins for the year, including a stage win at the Dauphine, this might be his best chance yet.

Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) is another Frenchman still searching for his first Tour de France stage victory. After missing last year’s race due to injuries sustained in a fight, Bouhanni will be desperate to make the most of his opportunity in 2017 and add to the four wins he has so far this year.

Alexander Kristoff has publicly acknowledged that he’s not particularly happy at Katusha-Alpecin at the moment, and his performance seems to have suffered a little. He’s had a solid six wins for the year, but hasn’t looked at his world-beating best. Still: one to watch in the sprints for sure.

ppfhkeuxxch8cim_amobd0a-a-jpg

Kristoff last won a stage of the Tour in 2014.

Michael Matthews (Sunweb) broke his Tour de France drought last year and will be hoping to add to that victory in 2017. Matthews has just two wins in 2017 — one at Vuelta al Pais Vasco and one at the Tour de Suisse — but the recency of the latter will give him confidence coming into the Tour.

The stage-hunters will have plenty of opportunities

In between the sprint stages and the days suited to the GC men, there are a bunch of stages that will suit those who can get into and win from the breakaway.

Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) broke several bones in a crash at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco earlier this year but had the perfect return to racing last weekend with wins in both the time trial and road race at the British national championships. Cummings is a master of the late escape and has won a stage at each of the last two Tours. It would be no surprise to see him take another this year.

Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) is a three-time Tour de France stage winner and two-time winner of the climbers’ classification. If Majka is a little off the pace overall he’s more than likely to get up the road in the mountains in search of more stage wins. He was strong at the Tour of California and the Tour of Slovenia, which he won, so he brings good form into the race.

m8filimsdvu6bqv0c2rnu_cze-jpg

Philippe Gilbert (QuickStep Floors) is having his best season since 2011, highlighted by his Tour of Flanders win, and will likely be on the lookout for stage wins at the Tour too. He won a stage of the Tour de Suisse in a sprint, and might be tempted by the tough uphill sprints on stage 3 and stage 14. Expect to see him in the break deep into the second and third weeks too.

Much like Gilbert, Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) has had a stellar year, and much like Gilbert GVA is more the capable of winning stages at the Tour. The Belgian has won a stage at the last two editions and will have his eye on the tough uphill sprints, like Gilbert and sparring partner Peter Sagan.

Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) will be in stage-hunting mode throughout the Tour, like he was at the Giro. At that particular race he took a strong win from the breakaway and will be hoping to replicate that feat in the mountains of the second and third week.

phsbfykivcq0o5hydcvtdwss8-jpg

Rolland was ecstatic to win a stage of the Giro earlier this year. A Tour de France stage win would mean even more.

There are many other exciting riders to watch in the race.

Tony Martin (QuickStep Floors): The four-time ITT world champion will be beyond keen to win the stage 1 ITT and take the yellow jersey on home soil.

Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe): Best young rider at the Dauphine and a good chance of repeating that performance at the Tour.

Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo): A genuine chance to win one or both of the race’s ITTs.

Louis Meintjes (UAE Team Emirates): Very impressive at the Dauphine, eighth overall last year. Could do the same or better in 2017, plus will be targeting the white jersey.

Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data): Showed good form recently at the Tour of Norway and Tour des Fjords. Good on tough uphill finishes.

Each stage of the race will be broadcast live, from the very start.

For the first time ever, fans of the Tour will have the opportunity to see every single kilometer of La Grand Boucle. Fans in Australia will be able to watch the race via SBS TV, streaming live on the Cycling Central website, and via the Tour Tracker app (Android, iphone and ipad). Broadcast details and times vary from stage to stage, so be sure to check out the Cycling Central website for more information.

Eurosport (Foxtel Channel 511) will also have live coverage of every stage of the Tour. Head to the Eurosport website for more info.

In the U.S. coverage will be found at NBC, NBCSN, and the NBC Sports Gold and NBC Sports apps. ITV will have live coverage in the UK.

As ever, be sure to check your local guides for up-to-date broadcast information. And if you’re following the race on Twitter, the hashtag you’ll need is #TDF2017.

Who do you think will win the 2017 Tour de France? And what are you most looking forward to?

          The Amplifiers Used On Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.   
Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band LP. There is currently a wonderful television program that goes into great detail about the production and history of each song.

Sargent Pepper recording session
While much of the music was done on keyboard and string instruments, McCartney’s bass, and some guitar is featured on the recordings.  The TV special mentioned said little about the guitars and nothing is noted about the amplifiers used on the album.


Paul McCartney with 1967 Bassman
The television program showed  only one amplifier; the Beatles’ blonde 1964 Fender Bassman. Aside from the Vox AC30, we know this Bassman amplifier was used on many of the Beatles albums.

We know that McCartney first used this amp in 1965 and continue to use it until 1967 in the recording studio.



After that Lennon and Harrison both put that Bassman to use.  Lennon continued to use it in the studio on some of his solo work. This Fender Bassman was the 1964 6C6-B circuit and featured twin Utah 12” speakers. It was a similar circuit to the one used on in the same era Bandmaster.

Beatles with Vox AC30's
The Beatles and many other British groups preferred to use Vox amplifiers since they were readily available and less expensive than imported United States brands, such as Fender. The Vox AC30 was perhaps the most used by the Beatles during their early days.

1964 Vox AC30

The Vox AC30 was a 30 watt class A amplifier, which technically speaking is very inefficient, because the power tubes are operating at full power. However class A is very pleasing to the ear and makes for a great performing amplifier.


The Vox AC30 had cathode biasing and no negative feedback loop. In my opinion the AC30 is one of the best amps ever made.

Despite the popularity of Vox amps in the U.K., the company was facing financial difficulties as early as 1964.

Jennings and Denney
Vox' manufacturer was JMI or Jenning’s Musical Instrument and run by Tom Jennings along with musician/guitarist/amplifier designer Dick Denney. In 1964 the partners had sold the company to a conglomerate called The Royston Company. Both men maintained posts in the organization through 1967 at which time they left the company. Perhaps the two men saw the writing on the wall, as the following year Royston filed for bankruptcy.

Some of the former JMI employees cut a deal with the bank that held the assets and they were able to procure the Vox name. Vox equipment was then produced under the name Vox Sound Equipment until 1969 when yet another bankruptcy ensued.

Vox Birch Stolec AC30
A company called Birch Stolec Industries purchased Vox from the holding company. One of the sales managers for this company was none other than Rick Huxley, the bass player for the Dave Clark Five. This firm built Vox amplifiers which included printed circuit boards and also produced some solid state versions of Vox amplifiers.

But let’s back up to before 1967 when Sargent Pepper was being made. Even before that date, when the Beatles and other bands were touring, as early as 1964, the folks at Vox realized the AC30 at full volume was not going to cut through the screams of the female fans. So they investigated producing a larger version.

Vox AC50 MKII


They had already come up with the AC50 MKII that McCartney can be seen using in concerts. (He still uses this amp today.)




Vox AC100


What they came up with was the Vox AC100 aka the Vox Super Deluxe. This was a a one channel amplifier that came with a large speaker unit, which contained four 12" Celestion speakers. It was Vox' answer to the Fender Dual Showman amplifier. The Beatles can be seen using this amp in concert footage.



Later in 1964 JMI reached an agreement with the Thomas Organ Company of the United State that they would be the sole US distributor for Vox. This may sound like an odd arrangement, if not for the fact the JMI was once known as the Jennings Organ Company. It may have been short-sighted of the former Jennings Organ Company to believe a US organ manufacturer would be a great vehicle to distribute Vox amplifiers. But during the guitar boon era, many companies were trying to get a piece of the pie.

US made Vox Super Beatle
Once Thomas Organ inked the deal they realized that JMI/Vox was not capable of manufacturing an adequate number of amplifiers to make the deal profitable. Thomas Organ, not at all happy about the situation and proposed a deal that they become licensed manufacturers of Vox amplifiers in the United States and Canada. Probably due to the financial situation at JMI, they agreed.

This is how the US Vox Super Beatle and other US amplifiers came to be made by the Thomas Organ Company aka Vox US.

Dick Denney traveled to the USA in 1965 to visit the Thomas Organ/VOX US manufacturing facility to see their products first hand. He was impressed with their solid state amplifiers. This lead him to come up with his own solid state/tube hybrid versions.

The guitar amps that Denney designed were called the UL7 series and the bass versions were the UL4 series.  UL was suggestive of Underwriters Laboratories, a group the put its approval on electronic merchandise.

Vox UL705




The UL705 was a 5 watt amplifier,while the UL710, and UL715 produced 15 watts. Both had solid state preamps, with tube based power amplifier sections.




Vox UL730
In 1966 a Vox UL730 was delivered to Abbey Road Recording studios for The Beatles use.

The power tube (or valve) selection of the UL730 included one ECC83 and a quartet of EL84 tubes. The ECC83 is actually a preamp tube, but was used as a phase inverter.



Vox UL730


The UL730 was a two channel amplifier with two inputs per channel, a boost switch for each channel. Channel One featured volume, treble, middle, and bass potentiometers, and controls for tremolo speed and depth.


Vox UL730 front panel
A distortion control was included in this channel. Channel Two included the volume, treble, middle, and bass controls, and added a reverb control.

The separate speaker cabinet was loaded with twin 12” Celestion speakers. Of course the amplifier featured the trolley.

The Beatles session
with the UL730


Vox manufactured only 100 units. This was not a popular amplifier since out of the 100 units sold, 76 units were returned. Some may have been defective, while others were exchanged for another amp of the era. The 76 units that were returned were said to have been destroyed.




Harrison's UL730

The amplifier that was delivered to the Beatles included a promotional sticker inside of it that stated it was “Promotional Stock - Model No. 760 Amp A/C Current - Serial # 3020 - Artist The Beatles”.


It is said to have been in George Harrison's procession and was to be auctioned on 12/15/2011, but the seller withdrew the offer prior to the sale date.

Vox single spring reverb
This was likely the amplifier that the Beatles used on the Sargent Pepper recordings. The UL730, and most Vox amplifiers included the Vox single spring reverb since Tom Jennings did not want to pay Hammond the $1 per unit royalty for use of their 3 spring version.


To avoid this fee he and Denney came up with their own reverb design.

McCartney using UL730

During the albums creation, McCartney played his Rickenbacker 4001S bass through it on most of the songs. Although it is said that he employed the UL430 bass amp on Lucy In The Sky.



Vox UL430
The UL430 was essentially the UL730 with no effects except for the boost switch. Other than that the tube compliment, speakers, and electronic design were similar. These amps look different from the VOX AC design. The UL amps, except for the UL705 feature controls in the front of the amplifier unit. They all still had the signature Vox grill cloth fabric. The UL730 and its companions are a part of our unique guitar history.

In addition to the Bassman and the Vox UL730, The Beatles utilized a 1967 Fender Showman amplifier that was in the studio.

1967 Fender Showman
The 1967 Fender Showman was a black faced and from the final year Fender made black face amplifiers. The amp had an 85 watt  head. The cabinet was loaded with a single 12” JBL speaker. The preamp section was made up of two 7025’s and the power tubes included a quartet of 6L6’s.

It is also written that Paul McCartney used a Selmer Thunderbird Twin 50 MkII on Good Morning, Good Morning, which he may have used early in The Beatles career.

Selmer Thunderbird Twin 50 MKII
The Selmer Thunderbird was finished in what is called “croc-skin”. The preamp and power amp were housed in the cabinet. The amplifier had two inputs, a“Selectortone” push button tone control feature, along with tremolo and reverb contols. This amp came with a stand to raise it off the floor.

1967 Vox Conqueror/Defiant
 Several other sources say that the Beatles used a Vox Conqueror on Sargent Pepper. The Conqueror was the completely solid state amp that replaced the UL730. This 30 watt two channel amp featured germanium transistors. The channel controls were mounted on top of the head and featured a normal and a brilliant channel, while the effects controls were mounted on the amplifiers front panel.

Both channels featured volume, treble, and bass potentiomers and a boost switch. And both had two inputs.

1967 Vox Conqueror
top and front pane
l
The front panel for the effects  had controls for tremolo speed and depth, as well as a reverb section that allowed reverb on channel one, off, or channel two. It also included a MRB switch that selected tone boost frequencies.


The Vox Conqueror came with a modified trolley that contained the speaker unit only. The head stood on top of the speakers.

Vox Defiant
Vox also made a similar amplifier called The Vox Defiant. The Defiants head was slightly larger than the Conqueror. In fact at first look it resembled the Conqueror. However the Defiant pushed 50 watts instead of 30 watts.  The Defiant amp was featured in the background of a promotional photo for Sargent Pepper. But for the promo video I do not know if this amp was used on the record,

The Beatles also used two other Vox amplifiers; the 7120 and the 4120 bass amp, which they had used on the Revolver LP.

Vox 7120

The 7120 was the most powerful amplifier that Vox had produced. This was another hybrid amp, with a solid state preamp section and a tube power amp section, which consisted of four KT88 power tubes and an EL84 and an ECL86 which acted as phase inverters. It was rated at 120 watts. It utilized one ECL86, one EL84, and a quartet of KT88’s. The amplifier had two channels.



Vox 7120
Channel One was the vibrato channel and had two inputs, a boost switch, a volume, treble, middle, and bass control, along with a tremolo section with speed and depth, and a reverb section, and a distortion control.

Channel two featured two inputs, a boost switch, volume, treble, middle, and bass controls, and a reverb control.

Vox 7120

The 7120 speaker cabinet had two 12” Celestion T 1225 speakers and two Goodman midax horns. The controls on the amplifier section were on the bottom of the amplifier head.



Vox 4120
The Vox 4120 bass amplifier was very similar in the amplifier section. However it lacked the effects associated with the 7120. Everything else was the same. The speaker compliment was quite different. The amp had four 12” Alnico Celestion speakers and two Goodman Midax high frequency 17 watt horns. The 4120 also had an output of 120 watts, It was made for only one year; 1966.

          Czech holds rate, sees rates rising in line with forecast   
     The central bank of the Czech Republic left its two-week benchmark repo rate at 0.05 percent in a unanimous decision by its board and said "it is likely that the CNB will increase interest rates in line with the prediction" in view of the current forecast and balance of risks.
     In April the Czech National Bank (CNB) took the first step toward normalizing its monetary policy by abandoning its commitment from November 2013 to keep the koruna from exceeding to 27 to the euro as an additional tool to stave off deflation.
      This move to cap the koruna's exchange rate followed the CNB's cut to the current level of the repo rate, essentially zero, in November 2012.
      "Interest rate increases will be conditional on the evolution of all key macroeconomic variables, including the exchange rate of the koruna," the CBN said.
      In May the CNB forecast that interest rates will move higher in the third quarter of this year and 2018, with the 3-month PRIBOR (the Prague interbank market rate) rising to 0.8 percent from 0.5 percent this year. This 2018 forecast was lowered from its previous forecast of 1.1 percent, with any rate increases dampened until mid-2018 due to asset purchases by the European Central Bank.
       "The CNB Bank Board assessed the risks to the current inflation forecast at the monetary policy horizon as being slightly inflationary," the CBN said, adding that in the quarters ahead the exchange rate of the koruna may be weaker than forecast due to the closing of koruna positions by investors.
      In contrast, lower oil prices pose an anti-inflationary risk to the forecast," the CNB said.


     The Czech National Bank issued the following statement:


"At its meeting today, the Bank Board of the Czech National Bank decided unanimously to keep interest rates unchanged. The exit from the exchange rate commitment in April was the first step towards a gradual return of the overall monetary conditions to normal. Interest rate increases will be conditional on the evolution of all key macroeconomic variables, including the exchange rate of the koruna.
According to the current forecast, inflation will stay in the upper half of the tolerance band around the target for the rest of this year. It will decline towards the 2% target at the start of next year. Inflation will remain very close to the target at the monetary policy horizon, i.e. in 2018 Q2 and Q3. Consistent with the forecast is an increase in domestic market interest rates in 2017 Q3 and later also in 2018. The Bank Board assessed the risks to the current forecast as being slightly inflationary.
Economic activity in the Czech Republic’s main trading partner countries is continuing to rise at a solid pace. Its outlook for this year increased slightly, reflecting faster growth at the start of this year and favourable leading indicators for Q2. Producer price inflation also shifted slightly upwards for this year. Next year, however, the effect of the increase in commodity prices will unwind and producer price inflation will then ease to the levels expected in our current forecast, i.e. towards 2%. The outlook for euro area consumer price inflation remains virtually unchanged. Inflation will thus increase only very gradually and will not approach the European Central Bank’s target from below until the close of next year. While the outlook for the three-month EURIBOR is unchanged for this year, it is marginally lower for next year.
The market outlook for the Brent crude oil price declined to around USD 51 a barrel owing to continuing excess supply. According to market outlooks, the oil price will stay close to this level until the end of next year. Currently, it is significantly lower. The market outlooks for the euro-dollar exchange rate have shifted towards a slightly stronger euro. This is also a slight anti-inflationary factor as regards koruna prices of oil.
Domestic inflation edged down compared to the end of Q1. In May it stood at 2.4%, i.e. 0.2 percentage point below the forecast. This was due mainly to slightly slower growth in food prices and a more marked slowdown in annual fuel price growth compared to the forecast. By contrast, core inflation continued to increase and was slightly higher than forecasted. It still visibly reflects the continued growth in the domestic economy and wages.
Inflation pressures are also evident in other price categories. Prices in manufacturing are increasing at a relatively strong pace, although a moderation was observed in May. Growth in agricultural producer prices reached double figures. Construction work prices and market services prices are also rising steadily.
In line with expectations, the growth of the Czech economy accelerated in 2017 Q1, reaching almost 3%. GDP growth was 0.4 percentage point higher than forecasted. This was due mainly to a less pronounced decrease in fixed investment and inventories and, to a lesser extent, to faster growth in government consumption. Conversely, the contributions of household consumption and net exports were lower than forecasted. However, these two demand components maintain a dominant share in GDP growth.
The data available for 2017 Q2 point to continued solid growth in retail sales and industrial production. Construction output also saw pronounced recovery in April for the first time in a long time. The economic sentiment of both households and corporations remains high.
The unemployment rate in the Czech Republic fell slightly further in 2017 Q1. The share of unemployed persons has come down somewhat again in Q2 so far and is approaching 4%. Wage growth in market sectors surged in 2017 Q1, reflecting the robust economic growth and increasing labour market tightness. Wages in non-market sectors have also been rising apace for some time now. The April wage data suggest a further increase in wage growth.
To sum up the important facts about recent developments in the Czech economy, inflation was slightly below the forecast in May. Conversely, the growth rates of GDP and the average wage in 2017 Q1 were higher than forecasted. The share of unemployed persons was in line with the forecast in April and May.
The CNB Bank Board assessed the risks to the current inflation forecast at the monetary policy horizon as being slightly inflationary. The observed stronger growth in domestic economic activity and wages may act in this direction. The koruna exchange rate remains a significant source of uncertainty. In the quarters ahead, it may be weaker than forecasted owing to the closing of koruna positions by financial investors amid the absence of a counterparty for these transactions. By contrast, lower current and expected oil prices pose an anti-inflationary risk to the forecast. In view of the message of the current forecast and the balance of its risks, it is likely that the CNB will increase interest rates in line with the prediction."

          Defiant Trump resumes attacks on 'Morning Joe' hosts, despite bipartisan criticism   

A defiant President Donald Trump resumed his attacks on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Saturday morning, calling Scarborough "crazy" and Brzezinski "dumb as a rock," despite days of bipartisan criticism over his initial attacks on the pair earlier this week.

"Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!" Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers rebuked Trump's attacks on the hosts Thursday after he slammed Brzezinski's intellect, questioned her sanity and mocked her appearance.

"I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came... to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!" Trump wrote in a series of tweets.

On Friday, Scarborough and Brzezinski responded to Trump's attacks with an opinion piece in The Washington Post titled "Donald Trump is not well."

"America's leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president," they wrote. "We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, 'Morning Joe.'"

During their Friday "Morning Joe" broadcast, Scarborough and Brzezinski also accused Trump and his White House of using the possibility of a hit piece in the National Enquirer to threaten them and change their news coverage, to which Trump responded on Twitter by calling that accusation "FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show."

But Scarborough said he has proof of White House threats earlier this year; he replied to Trump by tweeting, "Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records."

A White House official suggested to CNN that nothing untoward occurred, saying Scarborough called Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, about the Enquirer story before it was published. The official said Kushner told Scarborough to call the President. The official denied there was ever any offer from Kushner of a quid pro quo -- in other words, softer coverage in exchange for spiking the Enquirer story.

The White House did not return a request for comment on Trump's latest tweet on Saturday.

Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's initial attack at Thursday's White House press briefing, saying, "Look, the American people elected a fighter. They didn't elect somebody to sit back and do nothing." She added that Trump "fights fire with fire."

Sanders also said on Fox News that Trump was responding to liberal bullying when he tweeted about the MSNBC host.

"I don't think that the President's ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn't push back," she told the network Thursday. "There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks not just to him but people around him."

First lady Melania Trump also stood by her husband's remarks about the hosts.

"As the first lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder," the first lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement to CNN on Thursday.

When asked about Trump's initial tweets during a House Republican news conference Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan responded, "Obviously I don't see that as an appropriate comment."

He added: "What we're trying to do around here is improve the tone, the civility of the debate. And this obviously doesn't help do that."

Other Republican lawmakers reacted by making public pleas to the President to stop the personal attacks.

"Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office," GOP Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska tweeted shortly after Trump launched into a tweetstorm about the show.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham also tweeted Thursday: "Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America."

Meanwhile, Democrats have capitalized on the feud, intensifying their attacks on the President and questioning his ability to lead. Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, for example, urged his colleagues to get behind a bill that could potentially oust the President if he was mentally or physically unfit.

          Village Day Lessons   

Each year we run the Village Day we come away with some lessons to make improvements on the numbers for next year's event:
  1. If there's something for kids, then that will attract the parents. This year, as well as the 'make yourself a funny hat' stall (run by Hay and her sister), we had the local primary school field a choir and, naturally, all the parents HAD to attend, albeit under protest in many cases. On the basis of that, I'm going to suggest that next year we kidnap the kids from all the local primary school on the Friday afternoon and hold them to ransom in exchange for raffle tickets on the Saturday event. It could prove an expensive strategy though, and there's always the risk that some parents would allow us to keep their kids.
  2. While the pork sausages and bacon baps went down well, we should have widened the demographic by offering halal bacon and pork sausages.
  3. I will also suggest we dress someone up as a traffic policeman (we have a semi-retired policeman on the committee anyway) and get him to divert traffic from the road, with the aid of a mock-up radar gun, into the Village Day venue car park on the pretext of catching them speeding (which they will be guaranteed to be doing anyway). They could either go to the Village Day Speeding Re-education Stand or pay a 'fine' for a raffle ticket.
  4. The armoured vehicle and WWII weapons stand proved popular - next year we should have a mock battle between Brexiteers and Remainers.



          Connecticut Looks To Sell Its Obamacare Exchange To Other States   
Kevin Counihan, the CEO of Access Health CT , is walking through the 15th floor of a downtown Hartford office building that houses Connecticut's health insurance marketplace. He passes the legal department, the IT folks and the consultants, then stops in front of three large, wall-mounted computer screens. "These are showing in real time, activity on our website. So, for example, right now you're looking at the number of concurrent users on the site," Counihan says. "So you can see that there are 212 people in the process of applying for insurance on the site." The monitors and technology are just a part of what his agency is doing right. Connecticut is widely seen as one of the states that is succeeding with the Affordable Care Act . The state's website works well, and it has already exceeded its first-year enrollment goals. Other states have noticed. "We were approached by several states who called us and said, 'Would you have any interest in franchising your exchange to us as a
          Call Centers Got Big Deals Under Health Law, But How Big?    
Before the Affordable Care Act was even open for enrollment, Viviana Alvarado was already taking calls from people who wanted to know more. She and about 40 of her colleagues are staffing the phones for Maximus , the company Connecticut has contracted to run its call center. The government contractors running the troubled HealthCare.gov website have been under intense scrutiny in the past month, but those businesses aren't the only ones being paid to rollout Obamacare. In the states that are running their own health care exchanges, practices vary. Oregon, for instance, set up its own call centers; other states, like Connecticut, farm that business out to companies like Maximus. "It's a huge opportunity, and it remains so," says Rick Howard , an analyst at Gartner, a technology research firm. "There are millions of millions of folks coming in for insurance coverage. That represents a great opportunity for both commercial carriers and for those contractors who are servicing health care."
          Connecticut's Insurance Website Struggles At Opening   
Today is the day the uninsured can sign up for insurance on Connecticut's new health care exchange under the Affordable Care Act. But technical glitches have hampered the rollout. Kevin Counihan is pretty good at managing expectations. He's the head of Access Health CT, the agency that runs the state's new health insurance marketplace. He's got his eyes on 2016 and beyond. By then, he says, we'll be able to judge whether the health care overhaul has succeeded. So, for him, Oct. 1 may be exciting, but it's not all that telling. "I consider this Day One in a three-year enrollment period," Counihan said. "So I think it's sort of a nice metaphor for launching a major social program. But, frankly, in the big picture, it doesn't have a lot of value." And it might be a good idea for him to focus on the long term. Because, in the short term, the agency's website for enrolling — accesshealthct.com — has been glitchy at best, and offline at worst. Shortly after 9:00 a.m., Counihan said the
