          Thomas wins Tour opener as Froome lays down early marker

          The fast Day of Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas   
By Rabbi Yehuda Spitz
‘Zos Chukas HaTorah’ There is no mention in the Gemara of the week of Parshas Chukas being one of tragedy, nor is it mentioned by the Rambam, nor Tur, nor Shulchan Aruch! Not even in the Siman where tragedies and proper days to fast are mentioned, Orach Chaim 580! In fact, most are wholly unfamiliar with anything specifically attributed to this week. Yet, the Magen Avraham, citing the Sefer HaTanya[1] (an earlier source that the famous Kabbalistic work of the Shulchan Aruch HaRav), tells of a terrible, albeit fascinating, historical tragedy.

Friday of Fire

The Magen Avraham prefaces his terrible tale by quoting certain writings[2]
explaining that it is “worthwhile for every Jew to cry for the burning of the Torah”. He then proceeds to tell of a customary annual fast specifically for this purpose, on Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas. On that day, in the year 1242, 20 wagonloads (other versions state 24) filled with Gemaros and Talmudic literature, were burned in Paris by agents of the Church and King Louis IX. The pretext was a public debate between an apostate monk and several of the most eminent rabbinical authorities in France; the official verdict against them a foregone conclusion[3]. The impact and importance of this loss was tremendous. Keep in mind that this occurred over 200 years before the printing press was invented, and each of these volumes was a priceless, handwritten manuscript. In fact, this was considered such an enormous loss for Klal Yisrael, that the famed Maharam M’Rottenburg[4], an eyewitness, composed an elegy for our loss, ‘Sha’ali Serufa Ba’Aish’, deemed so essential, that it is incorporated into the Kinos recited every Tisha B’Av (Kinah 41).

The great rabbis at the time, at a loss to understand the extent of the tragedy, inquired of Heaven by means of a dream (known as a she’elas chalom) to discover whether this terrible event had been so decreed by Hashem. The heavenly reply was a succinct three words ‘Da Gezeiras Oraysa’. This is the Aramaic translation (see Targum Onkelus) of the opening verses to Parshas Chukas, ‘Zos Chukas HaTorah’, ‘These are the decrees of the Torah’ (Bamidbar Ch. 19, verse 2). The Rabbanim understood from this cryptic reply that the burning of the Talmud was indeed Heavenly decreed. Moreover, they gleaned that it was due to the proximity of the Parsha that the tragedy transpired, and not the day of the month[5].

Therefore, and as opposed to every other fast on the Jewish calendar, instead of a specific day established as a fast day, this one, designated a Taanis for Yechidim (fast for individuals), was set annually on the Erev Shabbos preceding Parshas Chukas. For those fasting, Asarah B’Teves would not be the only Taanis that practically occurs on a Friday[6]!

Retribution for the Rambam?

Rav Hillel of Verona, a talmid of Rabbeinu Yonah, and another eyewitness to these events, wrote a famous letter[7] in which he considered the burning of the Talmud as a clear sign of Divine anger and retribution for the burning of the works of the Rambam, in the exact same place in Paris not even forty days prior!

After the Rambam’s passing (in 1204), many great scholars who did not agree with his philosophical observations in his ‘Moreh Nevuchim’ and ‘Sefer HaMada’ banned his sefarim, with a tremendous controversy erupting throughout the Torah world[8]. Eventually, a number of his detractors submitted copies of his work to the monks of the Dominican Order to determine whether the Rambam’s works contained heretical ideas. The Dominican Friars, naturally, summarily concluded that the Rambam’s writings were not only false, but blasphemous. In 1234, inMontpelier, France, they publicly collected and burned all copies they found of ‘Moreh Nevuchim’ and ‘Sefer HaMada’. Similarly, in 1242, afanatical mob burned many of the Rambam’s writings in Paris. Less than 40 days later, at the exact same site, the 24 wagonloads of the Talmud were burned, on Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas[9].

According to Rav Hillel’s letter, the famed Rabbeinu Yonah, one of the Rambam’s primary opponents, took the Talmud burning as a Divine sign, and publicly and vociferously denounced his former position and opposition against the Rambam’s writings and instead emphatically concluded “Moshe Emes V’Toraso Emes, V’Kulanu Bada’in!” “Moshe and his Torah are true (here referring to the Rambam), while we all are liars”[10]. He planned on traveling to the Rambam’s grave (in Teverya) and begging forgiveness. Some say this tragic incident was the catalyst of Rabbeinu Yonah’s writing what came to be known as his Magnum Opus, ‘Shaarei Teshuva’.

Further Grounds for Fasting

After discussing the burning of the Talmud, the Magen Avraham offers another reason for fasting. On this very day, Erev Shabbos Chukas, two entire cities of Jews were brutally decimated, as part of the Gezeiras Ta”ch V’Ta”t, the Cossack massacres led by Bogdan Chmielnitsky ym”sh[11] in 1648 - 1649, as recorded by the Shach.

Although most know of the Shach as simply one of the preeminent halachic authorities, due to his extensive and authoritative commentary and rulings on the Shulchan Aruch, few know that he also wrote a sefer titled ‘Megillas Eifa’[12], detailing the horrific slaughter of tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands!) of Jews (and hundreds of entire communities) during these terrifying years. Among his entries he mentions the two cities that were wiped out on this same day in the year 1648 (5408). Hence, the Magen Avraham avers, that it is proper to fast (Taanis Yachid) on Erev Shabbos Chukas, due to both of these tragedies happening on this same day in history.
          Hold On to Your Jaw, Because This Is What OITNB's "Skinhead" Helen Really Looks Like   

Image Source: Netflix

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

Spoiler alert: SHE'S FREAKIN' GORGEOUS.

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

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

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

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

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


          Arkeolog Temukan "Gerbang Neraka" di Turki   
Gua Alepotrypa, gua yang diduga asal mitos neraka HadesNeraka adalah tempat yang sulit dideskripsikan secara detil. Bila ingin pergi ke neraka, orang tentu harus meninggal terlebih dahulu. Namun manusia, pada setiap jaman, selalu memberikan gambaran umum tentang neraka itu. Sejumlah arkeolog yang telah lama mencari neraka versi jaman kuno, menemukan gerbang yang disebut-sebut sebagai "pintu masuk ke neraka". 


Menurut kantor berita Italia, ANSA, sebuah tim arkeolog yang sedang meneliti kota kuno Phrygian, di Hierapolis yang berlokasi di barat daya Turki, mengklaim telah menemukan Plutonium atau gerbang menuju Pluto. 

Sebuah situs arkeologi yang dibuat oleh pilgrim atau peziarah kuno menduga gerbang itu sebagai jalan masuk ke underworld atau alam baka. Sebuah gua mungil dekat kuil Apollo adalah lokasi Plutonium yang diketahui memancarkan gas yang dapat menyebabkan kematian.

Seorang arkeolog yang berada di lokasi, Francesco D'Andria dari University of Salento mengumukan temuan tersebut dalam konferensi pers yang diadakan di Turki pada pertengahan Maret lalu, menurut La Gazzetta Del Mezzogiorno.

D'Andria mengatakan, pada  Discovery News bahwa ia juga menemukan reruntuhan kuil, yakni sebuah kolam yang digunakan para peziarah kuno dan beberapa anak tangga. 

"Kami dapat melihat bahwa gua tersebut memiliki gas mematikan. Sejumlah burung tewas saat hendak mendekati pintu masuk gua akibat uap karbondioksida," tambah D'Andria menurut Discovery News.

Austin Considine dari VICE menjelaskan bahwa gua tersebut merupakan fenomena alami yang dapat ditemukan di tempat-tempat lain di dunia. Fenomena tersebut terjadi akibat retakan kerak bumi.

Hierapolis, yang berlokasi di dekat kota modern Turki, Pamukkale telah diresmikan sebagai salah satu situs warisan dunia oleh UNESCO dan menarik lebih dari 1,5 juta wisatawan setiap tahunnya.  Francesco D'Andria telah menggali dan meneliti area tersebut selama bertahun-tahun.

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.

Democratic Transition in Tunisia

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

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

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

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

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

What remains of the old regime?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

react today Western countries and Arab neighbors?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Paris on the Nile

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Jean-Jacques Castex , (1731-1822), sculptor and is part of the Expedition to Egypt.
In January 1799, he accompanied the geographer Bertre engineer in his trip to Fayoum and is part of the commission led by Girard, who share Cairo March 19, 1799 for Upper Egypt . He creates a wax model, reduced to a third of Dendera Zodiac.
He is still famous to be carved on the great temple of Philae , registration
"year 6 of the Republic on 15 Messidor / a French army / commissioned by Bonaparte, / is down in Alexandria. / The army has taken twenty days, / the Mamelukes at the Pyramids on the run, / Desaix, commanding the first division, / has on undergraduate beyond the cataracts, / where he arrived on 13 of Ventose year 7. / The brigadiers / Davoust, Friant and Belliard, / Donzelot Chief of Staff, / Latournerie comm. of artillery / Eppler, Chief the 21st light / 13 Ventôse 7 of the Republic / March 3, year of Christ 1799. / Engraved by Castex sculptor.

Castex Street is close to the Rue St Antoine and bd Henri IV (75004)

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

Giovanni-Boldini-Portrait-of-Guiseppe-Verdi-1813-1901-.JPGДжузеппе Фортунино Франческо Верди (Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi), родился в 1813-ом году в итальянской деревне Ле Ронколе, расположенной в северной части Ломбардии близ города Буссето, Французская империя, - великий итальянский оперный композитор.

Отец композитора содержал деревенский трактир, а мать была пряхой. Семья жила бедно. В деревенской церкви Джузеппе помогал служить мессу, там же учился музыкальной грамоте и игре на органе.
На музыкально одарённого мальчика обратил внимание Антонио Барецци - богатый торговец и любитель музыки из соседнего города Буссето. Он верил в то, что Верди станет великим композитором. По совету Барецци Верди в десять лет переехал в Буссето, чтобы учиться музыке.

Для продолжения образования в восемнадцать лет Верди перебрался в Милан. Однако в консерваторию, которая сегодня носит имя Верди, его не приняли "из-за низкого уровня фортепианной игры". Кроме того, в консерватории были возрастные ограничения. 
Верди стал брать частные уроки контрапункта. Он посещал концерты и оперные спектакли и это убедило его стать театральным композитором.

Всё тот же Барецци предложил Джузеппе стать учителем музыки своей дочери Маргариты. Молодые люди полюбили друг друга и вскоре поженились. Но семейная жизнь не была счастливой: один за одним в полуторагодовалом возрасте умерли дочь и сын Верди, а через несколько лет от энцефалита умерла сама Маргарита, оставив Джузеппе безутешным вдовцом. Тем не менее композитор нашёл в себе силы не бросать творчество.

Em saudação aos 60 anos do MPLA, aos 52 anos da passagem do Che por África e aos 43 anos do 25 de Abril… e assinalando os 50 anos do início do “Exercício ALCORA” e os 50 anos do início da Guerra do Biafra.

15- O fascismo e colonialismo do Estado Novo, em função dos problemas que criou, tornou-se praticamente indigente no que ao armamento e equipamento militar dizia respeito: e vassalo nas obrigações internacionais no quadro da NATO e do Exercício ALCORA, uma vassalagem que não parou com o 25 de Abril de 1974.

Em Goa, Damão e Dio, ficou evidente que a capacidade militar do colonialismo português praticamente não existia e no campo da NATO, muito poucos tinham interesse em ajudar essa indigência avassalada, inclusive o aliado Grã-Bretanha.

Logo em 1961 relativamente a Angola, era essa a impressão do cônsul-geral da África do Sul em Luanda e por isso os portugueses recorreram desde logo ao “apartheid” para criar comunicações que levassem a futuros entendimentos com a África do Sul.

Se a vassalagem era impotente em relação à NATO, iriam buscá-la noutras paragens.

Em Setembro de 1963, a África do Sul ofereceu assistência militar e um ano depois, os portugueses manifestaram ao “apartheid” que estavam interessados num acordo permanente para o fornecimento de peças e outros serviços de apoio para os helicópteros Alouette III.

Em 1967 os dois países deram mais um passo no sentido do fornecimento por parte da África do Sul de material militar, algo que agradava ao “apartheid”, que além do mais se ia apercebendo que Portugal iria ficar em dependência em relação ao seu poderio e interesses.

Em 1968 os enlaces derivaram no sentido de se criar as bases do acordo do âmbito do Exercício ALCORA, sendo definida a entrada das SADF e Polícia sul-africana no sudeste de Angola, a pretexto do “apartheid” se juntar aos portugueses e dar caça simultaneamente às guerrilhas da SWAPO e do MPLA.

Em ambos os casos o “apartheid” aproveitou para estreitar laços com a PIDE/DGS, uma vez que o conceito e a doutrina dos Flechas às ordens de Óscar Cardoso lhes interessava, tanto como a Operação Madeira.

De entre os equipamentos que a África do Sul se comprometeu a fornecer nesse ano, estavam 5 helicópteros Alouette III, 33 autometralhadoras Panhard AML e 283 rádios TR 28C.

Algum desse armamento foi parar aos “Dragões” instalados no Bié, o que é um indicativo da percepção que o colonialismo português tinha sobre a importância geoestratégica da Região Central das Grandes Nascentes em Angola.

Para efeito desse fornecimento, os sul-africanos solicitaram ao Estado Novo que pedisse autorização aos franceses, uma vez que eram eles os produtores desses meios e o “apartheid”, que sob licença os produzia no seu território, respeitava os compromissos existentes com a França…

Portugal acedeu e os fornecimentos a partir de então passaram a ter plena garantia.

A França passou a ser um fornecedor de material de guerra que supria as necessidades do“apartheid”, no âmbito da internacional fascista que renitentemente se erguia em armas na África Austral e por tabela do colonialismo português, em especial nos teatros operacionais de Angola, Moçambique e Guiné Bissau.

É evidente que isso não teria sido possível sem que houvesse fortes laços entre os interessados da internacional fascista, ao abrigo do “Le Cercle”, um dos mentores mais reaccionários das políticas de então, unindo as tendências fascistas e colonialistas na Europa, na América Latina e em África, com respaldo das sucessivas administrações estado-unidenses.

O “Le Cercle” haveria de ter muitos êxitos nos seus “bons ofícios” na “defesa da civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e entre eles os resultantes dos papados no Vaticano dum polaco (João Paulo II – 22 de Outubro de 1978 a 2 de Abril de 2005) e dum alemão (Bento XVI – 24 de Abril de 2005 a 28 de Fevereiro de 2013)…

As mais “conservadoras” doutrinas da Igreja Católica Apostólica Romana, impactaram em Angola nos anos da “glasnost”, nos anos de chumbo, precisa e sincronizadamente na mesma altura dos impactos do capitalismo neoliberal após o desaparecimento do socialismo real da Europa e essa, sob o ponto de vista ideológico, é uma das explicações das aproximações que em função de Bicesse se fizeram a Angola, por via de partidos como o CDS, PSD e PS, até aos nossos dias… coisas de agenciados social-democratas do âmbito da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e dos negócios que ela tão bem propicia, já se vê…

Antes era nesse mesmo esteio que se movia a “Aginter Press”, no quadro das “redes stay behind” da NATO e do “Le Cercle”, acima das capacidades operacionais dos serviços de inteligência de Portugal, Rodésia e África do Sul, ainda que tivesse ficado sem efeito a Concordata do Estado Novo com o Vaticano…

O apoio da França foi garantido e a África do Sul teve luz verde para continuar o fornecimento de material militar ao Estado Novo, o que reforçou o seu relativo domínio na definição, formulação e organização das tarefas e missões implícitas no acordo do Exercício ALCORA.

O Estado Novo foi ficando cada vez mais avassalado ao “apartheid”, à medida que progredia a instalação do Exercício ALCORA.

As políticas de Richard Nixon para África por seu turno, deram outra cobertura às iniciativas em prol do Exercício ALCORA e no leste de Angola, a África do Sul desencadeou a Operação Bombaim, contra as guerrilhas do MPLA e da SWAPO, dando início a uma prolongada “border war” que só iria terminar em finais da década de 80 do século XX, quando a Linha da Frente passou irreversivelmente do paralelo de Brazzaville – Dar es Salam, para o paralelo da fronteira sul de Angola, Zâmbia e Moçambique, dando posteriormente origem à criação da “Southern African Development Community”, SADC.

O Exercício ALCORA teve início formal entre 4 e 7 de Dezembro de 1971, permitindo um aumento dos fornecimentos de material de guerra por parte da França e da África do Sul ao Estado Novo.

Em 1973 e 1974 o estudo dos riscos e ameaças, em função das informações colhidas em Kinshasa no âmbito do Exercício ALCORA (que envolveu também a “antena diplomática” que dava pelo nome de António Monteiro), apontava para a eminência dum ataque a Cabinda e norte de Angola, sob orientação do apêndice da CIA, Mobutu, Presidente do Zaíre, reforçado por outros países africanos.

O Zaíre havia adquirido armamento e os programas de acção contra o colonialismo português em suporte das FLEC e da FNLA, começaram a ganhar corpo.

A escalada de fornecimento de material de guerra em 1974, por parte do “apartheid” ao colonialismo português, subiu uma vez mais a fasquia: os sul-africanos iriam fazer reconhecimentos aéreos em Cabinda e norte de Angola, “a fim de detectar indícios de preparativos de concentração de forças inimigas”, estimularam o fornecimento de mísseis Crotale e prepararam um acordo financeiro, com uma ampla política de crédito disponível.

O 25 de Abril de 1974 inviabilizou alguns dos fornecimentos militares e o reconhecimento aéreo acordado, não terá inviabilizado o financiamento (que lhe terá sido anterior também por causa do Plano do Cunene e Cabora Bassa), mas o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu na direcção de Cabinda e do norte de Angola, estimuladas pela CIA no encontro “secreto” entre o general Spínola e Mobutu na ilha do Sal, ficaram proteladas para o quadro das disputas relativas à independência de Angola a 11 de Novembro de 1975.

Foi assim que o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu, passaram a integrar a Operação IAFEATURE, da “CIA contra Angola”, conforme a denúncia de John Stockwell.

De entre esses aproveitamentos esteve o Exército de Libertação de Portugal, ELP, um resultado dos compromissos do general Spínola, que depois de ultrapassar a hesitação de alinhamento directo com o “apartheid”, acabou por alinhar na operação da “CIA contra Angola”, tendo à frente o Coronel Santos e Castro, um profundo conhecedor das áreas a norte de Luanda (Caxito e Dembos).

O ELP aglutinou alguns sectores ligados à Frente Unida de Angola, FUA e à Frente Revolucionária de Angola, FRA (criado por Jaime Nogueira Pinto), entre outros, cujos programas levavam à independência de Angola de acordo com as ideias de Ian Smith na Rodésia e de forma a “repescar”em tempo oportuno o Exercício ALCORA.

Em “Jogos africanos”, Jaime Nogueira Pinto (membro assumido do “Le Cercle”), revela:

“… Com a partida de Silvério Marques e a chegada de Rosa Coutinho a situação agravou-se muito em todos os sectores.

O Almirante Vermelho, que logo se fizera rodear de uma segurança nunca vista, mostrava-se frio e eficaz no prosseguimento dos seus objectivos.

Achei que era tempo de passar a formas superiores de luta.

AGITPROP.

Tive então a ideia de criar a FRA – Frente Revolucionária de Angola.

O conceito era simples.

Se fôssemos fazer uma coisa de raiz, nós, os miúdos, os militares metropolitanos, não teríamos qualquer hipótese de ser levados a sério pelos civis locais.

Por isso achámos melhor recorrer à acção psicológica e à agitprop, criando um mito, uma lenda.

Engendramos então uma organização secreta – a FRA.

Redigíamos os panfletos originais da dita organização e fazíamos como se nos tivessem vindo parar às mãos.

Depois fotocopiávamos os panfletos e distribuíamo-los por círculos de activistas, onde estavam o Engenheiro Pompílio da Cruz, o capitão Seara e outros.

O Mariz Fernandes era a única pessoa, para além de mim e do Nunes, que sabia da coisa.

A ideia que passávamos era a de que existia uma forte organização secreta de resistência ao MFA e que quem aderia a essa sofisticadíssima rede clandestina passava a fazer parte duma poderosa máquina subversiva.

Assim a FRA funcionou, teve adesões, recrutou militantes e fez até algumas operações.

Era o que importava: não estar quieto, tentar coisas contra o apocalipse que se aproximava”…

…Por aquela altura já estava eu incorporado no Movimento Democrático de Angola (MDA) que, antes da chegada do MPLA a Luanda, sob orientação da Drª Maria do Carmo Medina e de Antero de Abreu, se contrapunha às influências da FUA e do FRA.

O ELP tinha influências também no sul de Angola, (Huíla, Namibe e em Benguela), com resíduos que foram permanecendo até hoje, com influência nos sectores económicos e sócio-políticos daquelas províncias, e intimamente associados a outros intervenientes dentro e fora de Angola, nomeadamente em Portugal e na África do Sul.

Era nesse cadinho que a BOSS/NIS recrutava agentes, como os que foram mais tarde detectados e neutralizados pela segurança angolana; Amílcar Fernandes Freire, Francisco Alberto Abarran Barata e Dongala Kamati, (meados da década de 80)… eu fui um dos oficiais instrutores do processo que lhes foi correspondente em defesa dasegurança e soberania de Angola… mal sabendo eu que em breve seria acusado, julgado e condenado por “golpe de estado sem efusão de sangue”(Processo 76/86)…

Foi assim também que o “apartheid”, tacitamente, desencadearia a Operação Savana, em apoio a Savimbi, em simultâneo à Operação da “CIA contra Angola” e na perspectiva de Holden e Savimbi alcançarem o poder em Luanda, a 11 de Novembro de 1975…”border war” já se vê…

… E foi assim que Portugal (onde já se vivia o após 25 de Novembro de 1975), retardou o reconhecimento da República Popular de Angola, (só o fez a 22 de Fevereiro de 1976 e foi o 83º país a fazê-lo) na espectativa de sua inviabilização!

É evidente que à medida que a aristocracia financeira mundial assumia o domínio, todas as peças da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se iam encaixando na sua estrutura em pirâmide, cada vez mais avassaladora, preparando a hegemonia unipolar.

16- A passagem da linha da frente progressista e informal, para a Linha da Frente contra o“apartheid” a sul de Angola, acompanhou a trajectória da evolução do Exercício ALCORA até ao seu colapso.

Em Brazzaville, sucederam-se vários governos progressistas, fora da órbitra das redes de Jacques Foccard e para tal muito contribuiu a ajuda internacionalista da 2ª coluna do Che, que teve em Jorge Risquet um dos seus principais dirigentes.

Instalada a partir de 1965, a 2ª coluna do Che, que continuou mesmo depois da passagem do Che pelo Congo na espectativa dos sucessos da guerrilha de Mulele, vocacionou-se também e desde logo no apoio ao Movimento de Libertação em África, nomeadamente no apoio ao MPLA.

No livro “El  Segundo Frente del Che en el Congo – Historia del Batallón Patricio Lumumba”, Jorge Risquet Valdés dá conta do papel da iniciativa solidária e internacionalista para com África, nos termos da linha da frente progressista informal que se instalou entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, narrando com detalhe as acções e citando uma nota do Comandante Fidel de Castro de 30 de Dezembro de 1966:

“Informa a nuestros compañeros en esa,

A nuestros instructores militares, que han permanecido meses alejados de nuestra pátria, cumpliendo misión histórica de solidariedade com pueblos hermanos de África y que han puesto mu yen alto el prestígio de la Revolución cubana envio un caluroso y bien merecido Saludo en estes dias de fiestas navideñas.

La actitud firme y decidida de ustedes, combatientes revolucionários, de permanecer voluntariamente junto a pueblos hermanos, amenazados y agredidos por el imperialismo, demuenstra el alto espiritu de internacionalismo proletário y de solidariedade revolucionaria que há alcanzado nuestro Pueblo. En esse gesto está presente el ideal revolucionaria de Camilo y la decisión inquebrantable de lucha del Che.

Nuestro partido, las fuerzas armadas revolucionaias y nuestro Pueblo, que se apresentan a festejar el octavo aniversario de nuestra Revolución, se sienten orgullosos de ustedes, abnegados jóvenes por la disposición de ofrendar sus vidas si fuere necessário por la causa justa de los pueblos oprimidos, conscientes de que com ello sirven a la pátria y a la humanidade”.

Muita capacidade operativa do MPLA e do PAIGC foi forjada nessa conjuntura, inclusive as três colunas que partiriam em socorro da Iª Região Política Militar do MPLA, cercada e vulnerável
a incursões militares e de inteligência por parte do colonialismo português.

Para o MPLA foi também muito importante para reverter as situações vividas com a sua expulsão do Zaíre.

As colunas do MPLA, Camilo Cienfuegos, Cami e Ferraz Bomboco foram apenas um dos resultados dessas iniciativas progressistas a partir de Brazzaville, além da continuidade da guerrilha de Pierre Mulele e da própria consolidação do poder progressista no Congo (Brazzaville).

Os guerrilheiros angolanos forjados nessas lutas inquebrantáveis, foram utilizados depois para a abertura da Frente Leste do MPLA já no início da década de 70 do século XX, fazendo progredir em direcção a sul a Libertação em África, tendo como rectaguarda o território zambiano e ponto de apoio logístico principal Dar es Salam; muitos dos chefes estiveram na proclamação das FAPLA.

A abertura da Frente Leste foi determinante para o “apartheid” se decidir a envolver no Exercício ALCORA, dando início à “border war” em 1968 e presença de suas forças no sudeste angolano, facto que por si comprova quanto era negativamente avaliado o poder militar do Estado Novo em Angola.

A abertura da Frente Leste obrigou por outro lado a internacional fascista (com Mobutu incluído) a reforçar as linhas etno-nacionaistas da FLEC, da FNLA e da UNITA…

Com o 25 de Abril de 1974, o Exercício ALCORA desmorona-se dos termos previstos pela internacional fascista que incluía Portugal, a Rodésia, a África do Sul e alguns aliados africanos infiltrados pelo seu sistema e pela CIA.

O plano de Mobutu para assaltar Cabinda e o norte de Angola, foi então “reconvertido”, o que só por si era um obstáculo à progressão em direcção sul das linhas progressistas a partir de Dar es Salam e Brazzaville.

Com a data de independência de Angola à vista, Mobutu “fazia-se ao bife”, sob os auspícios da CIA e tacitamente alinhado com o “apartheid”, enquanto os portugueses, perdidos nas lutas internas do MFA entre o 25 de abril de 1974 e o 25 de Novembro de 1975, iam respondendo conforme cada tendência política.

O Governador de Cabinda de então, Themudo Barata, veladamente alinhou com Mobutu e a FLEC, por efeito das políticas do general Spínola, conferindo à FLEC uma representatividade que não era internacionalmente reconhecida, numa polémica que é sustentada até nossos dias, com muitas entidades portuguesas a seguirem a trilha spinolista desde o 25 de Novembro de 1975.

As FLECs contam com apoios desse tipo em Portugal desde então.

Na aproximação do 11 de Novembro, Mobutu apoia a FLEC e a FNLA, de forma a intervir em Angola ao abrigo da CIA, pelo que angolanos e cubanos tiveram de travar as batalhas decisivas de Cabinda, Quifangondo e Ebo, a fim de ser proclamada a República Popular de Angola.

Em Cuba o Comandante Fidel apercebeu-se da importância de defender a capital angolana e simultaneamente Cabinda, pois sem isso seria impossível a progressão da linha da frente infrmal entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, para a Linha da Frente que mis tarde daria origem à SADC.

Pouco relevo se tem dado à batalha de Cabinda, mas o general de corpo de exército das Forças Armadas Revolucionárias de Cuba, Ramón Espinosa Martin, elaborou um relato completo dos acontecimentos no seu livro “La Batalla de Cabinda”.

Desse livro destaco uma das lições geoestratégicas do Comandante Fidel em África.

“Mensage de Salida nº. 58

Destino: Luanda.

Al: 1er. Comdt. Arguelles- Gondin.

El comandante en Jefenos há pedido les trasmitamos el seguiente texto:

Para Angola se envio todo lo solicitado e incluso más.

Se decidió reforzar Cabinda com recursos absolutamente adicionales.

Se envio também personal que estuviera en disposición de combatir.

Cabinda es el punto más débil y peor defendido.

Si se pierde Cabinda no lo podran recuperar más.

Angola sin Cabinda no podrá consolidar su independenciaporque alli están los recursos económicos fundamentales.

Mobutu quiere apoderar-se de Cabinda y tarde o temprano la va a agredir, sobre todo si sabe que está indefensa.

Es necessário que ustedes entiendan esto y se lo hagan compreender al MPLA.

Se acordo además enviar a Angola el personal necessário para la técnica soviética.

Por esto no lo creemos que se deba continuar debilitando Cabinda.

Si ya bajaron los morteros 120 en Bengela, úsenlos entonces en Angola pero no reduzcan más los medios destinados a Cabinda.

Debemos atenernos a los planos acordados.

Ahora se lucha en Angola pero no sabemos lo que puede ocurrir en Cabinda y no debemos dejar nuestro personal alli debilitado, ya que en caso de ataque por fuerzas d Zaire tendrán que luchar muy duramente y prácticamente solos.

En Angola tienen ya bastantes médios.

Estan recebuiendo además el material de otros países y se puede continuar reforzando desde aqui com personal cubano.

Si Hay peligro real en Luanda es mejor reforzar esa dirección com médios de las otras escuelas antes que descuidar Cabinda.

Ustedes tienen ahi varias opciones posibles cuando lo consideren realmente necesario.

Los ruego analicen com serenidade estos hechos.

Si se gana la guerra en Angola Y se pierde en Cabinda, se habra perdido mucho.

Hay que tratr de obtener los objectivos completos en ambos puntos.

Saludos, Fidel.

Firmado: Colomé.

18.10.75”.

A Operação Carlota estava lançada e a RPA levaria a linha da frente para a sua própria fronteira sul, o que obrigaria o “apartheid” a reinventar e reconverter a “border war”, nunca desperdiçando o que quer que fosse dos “bons ofícios” à portuguesa no quadro dos sucessivos governos de após 25 de Novembro de 1975, tendo em conta a absorção de muitos conceitos e práticas do colonialismo português e dos nexos de inteligência que todos eles propiciavam.

Isso perdurou não só enquanto esteve em vigência o “apartheid”, mas também quando as políticas hegemónicas unipolares incentivadas pela “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se fortaleceram e impactaram da maneira mais terrível (choque neoliberal entre 1992 e 2002), quanto da maneira mais “persuasiva” (quando se foi evidenciando a terapia neoliberal em Angola, de 2002 aos nossos dias)… para esse efeito a inteligência económica dos sucessivos governos de Portugal, vassala dos poderosos, tal como do Bilderberg, esperaram a sua hora!

Em relação a Angola, por alturas do passamento físico do Comandante Fidel, foi justo o que escrevi na Embaixada de Cuba enquanto “soldado do MPLA” e antigo combatente angolano, face à fotografia do Comandante, insigne lutador pelas mais justas causas libertárias de África:

“… De Argel ao Cabo…

Cavalgando com Fidel!

… Levando o ardor progressista desde contra o baluarte do colonialismo francês no Norte de África…

… Até contra o bastião mais retrógrado e fascista que existia à face da Terra após a IIª Guerra Mundial, em seu perverso domínio em toda a África Austral…

… Precisamente no sentido inverso ao projetado pelo império anglo-saxónico sob inspiração de Cecil John Rhodes… do Cabo ao Cairo…

… Em 55 anos foi de facto um vulcão libertário que sacudiu África e se distendeu, um vulcão libertário cuja energia tem aqui e agora, no berço da humanidade, oportunidade para muito melhor se refletir, se equacionar e inteligentemente aproveitar!...

… Quanto os africanos não têm saudavelmente absorvido do legítimo contributo e histórica responsabilidade revolucionária cubana, por via das armas enquanto houvera que ser, por via da educação e da saúde enquanto nesses 55 anos o foi, o é… e o será no porvir!?

Vencido o colonialismo pelas armas… vencido o apartheid pelas armas… vencidas algumas de suas sequelas pelas armas… quando face às bombas nucleares nenhum combatente progressista recuou… a paz, a harmonia e a luta contra o subdesenvolvimento tornou-se mais possível que nunca!...”

          Washington and Berlin on a Collision Course   

The Russia sanctions bill that passed the US Senate by 98:2 on June 15 is a bombshell; it directly demonizes the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, under the Baltic Sea, which is bound to double Gazprom’s energy capacity to supply gas to Europe.

The 9.5 billion euro pipeline is being financed by five companies; Germany's Uniper and Wintershall; Austria's OMV; France’s Engie; and Anglo-Dutch Shell. All these majors operate in Russia, and have, or will establish, pipeline contracts with Gazprom.

épaules légèrement frissonnantes regarder le matin bleu depuis ma chambre

Me laver les cheveux, un peu de ménage,
Ecouter beaux discours prononcés à Strasbourg par les puissants actuels en hommage à une Europe qui n'existe plus, (un peu même sentiment qu'en écoutant parler de Simone Veil avec le regard porté sur le féminisme actuel) – sentir mon âge
Lire, regarder, ce que je trouve sur la politique actuelle en achevant de purifier mon rire pour qu'il soit franc et non ricanant, même si pour cela je dois négliger les effets de ce théâtre minable sur le sort à venir du pays et des plus faibles d'entre nous
Mais me reste petite colère qui prend ce qui lui passe sous les yeux pour se distraire de son objet actuel comme en picorant chez les troubadours quand se faisaient critiques pour aller avec mes tentatives de photos (je continue à me maudire) dans l'après-midi
Ouvrir Campo santo de Sebald, et lire les quatre premiers textes (avant des essais) reliquats d'un livre projeté sur la Corse... avec, entre autre, après l'évocation des cimetières privés, ce regard extérieur rapporté par Stephen Wilson, dont je ne sais rien si ce n'est qu'il est un collègue anglais de Sebald, sur les voceratrici (qu'absurdement je ressens comme miennes) qui s'arrachaient les cheveux comme les furies antiques et s'égratignaient le visage, selon toute apparence hors d'elles de colère et de douleur aveugles, tandis que dehors les hommes se tenaient dans le couloir sombre et dans l'escalier, frappant le sol de la crosse de leurs fusils. Stephen Wilson souligne que des témoins oculaires, qui au XIXe siècle et jusque dans l'entre-deux-guerres ont assisté à de telles veillées funèbres, ont trouvé remarquable la façon dont les pleureuses d'une part entraient progressivement en transe, étaient prises de vertiges et perdaient conscience, et d'autre part ne donnaient absolument pas l'impression d'être envahies par une émotion sincère. Certains témoins, selon Stephen Wilson, vont jusqu'à parler d'une absence d'émotion frappante ou même de rigidité, quand la chanteuse, en dépit de la passion qui explose convulsivement dans les aigus, ne verse pas une larme. Devant un tel contrôle de soi, en apparence glacé, quelques commentateurs inclinaient à voir dans les plaintes des voceratriciun rituel vide, prescrit par la tradition, ce que confirme l'observation que pour rassembler un choeur de pleureuses il fallait déjà une bonne mesure de préparation pratique et, pour le chant lui-même, de discipline rationnelle (traduction de Patrick Charbonneau et Sibylle Muller) ce qui entraine chez Sebald, reprenant la parole Mais en vérité, il n'y a pas de contradiction.. un beau développement sur le deuil, puis sur le deuil moderne... et ses rites rapides. A cette époque, tous étaient indispensables, même ceux qui étaient morts. En revanche, dans les conurbations de la fin du XXe siècle, où chacun est remplaçable dans l'instant, et en fait superflu dès sa naissance, il importe de jeter sans cesse du lest... et recopiant cela il me vient à l'esprit que nous nous revanchons de nos émotions contenues en les exprimant, fort sincèrement, lors des morts célèbres, en pleurant l'image que nous avons de personnages qui nous sont en réalité étrangers.

L'abstention, quand il y a le choix, est UN CRIME contre la France, et contre nous-mêmes.

          When Empires Fail: 3 Books That Predict The Crash   
It begins with a political leader or a businessman who hits on a powerful new idea, one that puts him miles ahead of everyone else. It could be a new innovation, like the financial derivative, or a new way of doing business, like Microsoft selling software. It could be something destructive, like Hitler's blitzkrieg, which ran over France in two months. No matter the specifics, it leaves everyone else flat-footed and looking foolish. Our man (it's usually a man) is now indestructible and untouchable. With nothing in his way, he is, for a while, an irresistible force. Until he takes one step too far. You can usually see it coming. And then things start to collapse, often with profound or humiliating consequences. It's like a good disaster movie — the crash is the best part. Copyright 2014 NPR.

          Tour de France: Vallen, glijden en rijden in regen   

De regen was de grote hoofdrolspeler tijdens de openingstijdrit van de Tour de France. Van vlak voor de start van Elie Gesbert tot vlak na de finish van Chris Froome regende het in de straten van Düsseldorf. En dat zorgde er misschien wel voor dat de verschillen tussen de toppers nog groter werden. Geraint Thomas (Sky) stak er uiteindelijk met kop en schouders bovenuit.

Val Valverde

Van de favorieten voor de eindzege leed Nairo Quintana de grootste schade. Niet zozeer door zijn tijd, die voor zijn doen best behoorlijk was, maar vooral door de val van Alejandro Valverde. De Spanjaard was bij Movistar aangewezen als dé meesterknecht voor Quintana tijdens deze Tour de France, maar ging in een van de natte bochten hard onderuit. Valverde - die zelf ook nog een goed klassement had kunnen rijden - brak zijn knieschijf en moest de Tour gelijk vaarwel zeggen.

 

In diezelfde bocht ging Ion Izagirre onderuit en ook voor hem was het fataal. De kopman van Bahrein-Merida mikte op een plek in de top 10, misschien zelfs top 5, maar moet nu vanaf de bank de rest volgen. Verder is het nog niet duidelijk of Luke Durbridge zondag opstapt.

LottoNL-Jumbo glijdt

De ploeg die het vaakst onderuit ging, was de Nederlandse formatie LottoNL-Jumbo. Kandidaat winnaar voor de proloog Primoz Roglic, Dylan Groenewegen en George Bennett maakten allemaal kennis met het asfalt. Gelukkig bleef bij het trio de fysieke schade beperkt. Vooral bij Groenewegen was mooi te zien hoe hij door bleef glijden op de straat.

 

Jos van Emden ging bij LottoNL-Jumbo niet onderuit, maar wist zijn stunt (winst in de afsluitende Giro-tijdrit) niet te herhalen in de Ronde van Frankrijk. Hij moest als beste Nederlander genoegen nemen met een zevende plek op vijftien seconden van Thomas. De Welshmen reed verreweg de snelste tijd, al had hij wel het geluk dat zijn grootste uitdagers (Tony Martin en Stefan Küng) tijdens de natste fase moesten rijden.

 

De zege kwam voor Thomas eigenlijk uit het niets. „Ik had dit totaal niet verwacht. Ongelooflijk. Als het zo nat is en te glad, moet je niet te hard gaan. Ik rekende erop dat iemand mijn tijd wel zou verbeteren, maar dat gebeurde niet."

SuperSky

Niet alleen Thomas reed een prima tijdrit. Heel Sky kwam goed voor de dag. De ploeg finishte met vier renners bij de eerste zeven. Daar hoorde ook Froome bij met een zesde plaats. Hij pakte direct veel voorsprong op zijn belangrijkste concurrenten: Richie Porte, Alberto Contador, Nairo Quintana en Roman Bardet.

          Russians were holocausted by Bolshevik Jews   
Russians were holocausted by Bolshevik Jews
I am part Russian and will continue to expose the Jews behind the New World Order.  The same tactics and death camps are here in america just waiting to be used.  we know from the apocalypse they will "behead" Christians that is why there were 30,000 guillotines sent to these FEMA camps.  You may ask why beheading?  This is where the "organ harvesting" business comes into play.  It is not conspiracy folks get your head out of the sand.  The Jews are now saying their Messianic Era will start in about 5 years or so hence why I warn you that Antichrist Maitreya is about to arrive onto the scene.
SOURCE
WARNING: Sensitive Material
Below is a excerpt from the book, ‘under the sign of the scorpion’ which describes some of the methods of torture and mass murder the Jewish Communists (Bolsheviks) sadistically inflicted onto the Russian Christian people. I warn you, you will be horrified. This is the real holocaust that happened in the 20th century, the Russian Holocaust, carried out by blood-thirsty and demonic bolshevik jews. I highlighted the parts I found to be most gut-wrenching in red.
Here it must be pointed out that the Cheka was under the control of Jews, according to documents now available. Much of this was known already in 1925. The researcher Larseh wrote in his book “The Blood-Lust of Bolshevism” (Wurttemberg, p. 45) that 50 per cent of the Cheka consisted of Jews with Jewish names, 25 per cent were Jews who had taken Russian names. All the chiefs were Jews. Lenin was well informed about all those serious crimes. All of the documents were placed on his desk. Lenin answered: “Put more force into the terror… shoot every tenth person, place all the suspects in concentration camps!”
Image result for under the sign of the scorpion
Lenin incarcerated people without any sentence, despite the establishment of revolutionary tribunals, as was the case in France under the Jacobins. Lenin actually claimed that the concentration camps were schools of labour. (Mikhail Heller and Alexander Nekrich, doctors of history, “Utopia in Power”, London, 1986, p. 67.) Lenin also claimed that the factory was the workers’ only school. They did not need any other education. He emphasised that anyone who could only do simple arithmetic could run a factory. Just like the terror of the Jacobins in France, the Jewish Bolshevik functionaries used barges to drown people in. Bela Kun (actually Aaron Kohn) and Roza Zemlyachka (actually Rozalia Zalkind) drowned Russian 110 officers in this way in the Crimea in the autumn of 1920. (Igor Bunich, “The Party’s Gold”, St. Petersburg, 1992, p. 73.)
The unusually cruel Jewish Chekist Mikhail Kedrov (actually Zederbaum) drowned 1092 Russian officers in the White Sea in the spring of 1920. Lenin and his accomplices did not arrest just anyone. They executed those most active in society, the independent thinkers. Lenin gave orders to kill as many students as possible in several towns. The Chekists arrested every youth wearing a school cap. They were liquidated because Lenin believed the coming Russian intellectuals would be a threat to the Soviet regime. (Vladimir Soloukhin, “In the Light of Day”, Moscow 1992, p. 40.) The role of the Russian intellectuals in society was taken over by the Jews. Many students (for example in Yaroslavl) learned quickly and hid their school caps. Afterwards, the Chekists stopped all suspect youths and searched their hair for the stripe of the school cap. If the stripe was found, the youth was killed on the spot.
The author Vladimir Soloukhin revealed that the Chekists were especially interested in handsome boys and pretty girls. These were the first to be killed. It was believed that there would be more intellectuals among attractive people. Attractive youths were therefore killed as a danger to society. No crime as terrible as this has hitherto been described in the history of the world. The terror was co-ordinated by the Chekist functionary Joseph Unschlicht. How did they go about the murders? The Jewish Chekists flavoured murder with various torture methods. In his documentary “The Russia We Lost”, the director Stanislav Govorukhin told how the priesthood in Kherson were crucified. The archbishop Andronnikov in Perm was tortured: his eyes were poked out, his ears and nose were cut off.

In Kharkov the priest Dmitri was undressed. When he tried to make the sign of the cross, a Chekist cut off his right hand. Several sources tell how the Chekists in Kharkov placed the victims in a row and nailed their hands to a table, cut around their wrists with a knife, poured boiling water over the hands and pulled the skin off. This was called “pulling off the glove”. In other places, the victim’s head was placed on an anvil and slowly crushed with a steam hammer. Those due to undergo the same punishment the next day were forced to watch.
The eyes of church dignitaries were poked out, their tongues were cut off and they were buried alive. There were Chekists who used to cut open 111 the stomachs of their victims, following which they pulled out a length of the small intestine and nailed it to a telegraph pole and, with a whip, forced the unlucky victim to run circles around the pole until the whole intestine had been unravelled and the victim died. The bishop of Voronezh was boiled alive in a big pot, after which the monks, with revolvers aimed at their heads, were forced to drink this soup.
Other Chekists crushed the heads of their victims with special headscrews, or drilled them through with dental tools. The upper part of the skull was sawn off and the nearest in line was forced to eat the brain, following which the procedure would be repeated to the end of the line. The Chekists often arrested whole families and tortured the children before the eyes of their parents, and the wives before their husbands. Mikhail Voslensky, a former Soviet functionary, described some of the cruel methods used by the Chekists in his book “Nomenklatura” / “Nomenclature” (Stockholm, 1982, p. 321):Related image
“In Kharkov, people were scalped. In Voronezh, the torture victims were placed in barrels into which nails were hammered so that they stuck out on the inside, upon which the barrels were set rolling. A pentacle (usually a five-pointed star formerly used in magic) was burned into the foreheads of the victims. In Tsaritsyn and Kamyshin, the hands of victims were amputated with a saw. In Poltava and Kremenchug, the victims were impaled. In Odessa, they were roasted alive in ovens or ripped to pieces. In Kiev, the victims were placed in coffins with a decomposing body and buried alive, only to be dug up again after half an hour.” Lenin was dissatisfied with these reports and demanded: “Put more force into the terror!”
All of this happened in the provinces. The reader can try to imagine how people were executed in Moscow. The Russian-Jewish newspaper Yevreyskaya Tribuna stated on the 24th of August 1922 that Lenin had asked the rabbis if they were satisfied with the particularly cruel executions. The Ideological Background of the Terror Compare the crimes mentioned in the previous chapter with the Old Testament account of King David’s massacre of the entire civilian population of an enemy (“thus did he unto all the cities of the children of 112 Ammon”). He “cut them with saws and with harrows of iron” and “made them pass through the brickkiln”. After the Second World War, this text was changed in most European Bibles. Now, many Bibles state that the people were put to work with the tools mentioned and were occupied with brick-making – something the inhabitants had been doing continually for several thousand years already. (This is found in II Samuel, 12:31, and in I Chronicles 20:3.)
The Jewish extremists’ serious crimes in Russia were committed in the true spirit of the Old Testament (King James’ Bible): * The god of the Israelites demands the mass-murder of Gentiles (i.e. goyim = non-Jews), including women and children. (Deuteronomy, 20:16.) * Yahweh wishes to spread terror among the Gentiles (Deuteronomy, 2:25). * Yahweh demands the destruction of other religions (Deuteronomy, 7:5). * The Jews may divide the prey of a great spoil (Isaiah, 33:23). * The Jews may make Gentiles their slaves (Isaiah, 14:2). * Those refusing to serve the Jews shall perish and be utterly wasted (Isaiah, 60:12). * Gentiles shall be forced to eat

their own flesh (Isaiah, 49:26).


Returning to the Bolshevik terror: in order to control the people’s hatred of their Jewish torturers and executioners, people suspected of having an anti-Semitic attitude were also executed. Those in possession of the book “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” were executed on the spot. At the end of March 1919, Lenin was forced to explain: “The Jews are not the enemies of the working classes… they are our friends in the struggle for Socialism.” But the people hated precisely this Socialism and those who practised terror in its name. Vladimir Ulyanov’s passion was to kill as many people as possible without thinking of the consequences. Of course, he never wondered whether it was really possible to build a state on violence and evil.
Lenin showed the same kind of thoughtlessness by the Yenisei, where he had loaded his boat with so many dead rabbits with crushed heads that it sank under the weight. In August 1991 the state-ship Lenin had launched, sank. What else was to be expected? In the beginning of the 1920s there were already 70 000 prisoners in 300 concentration camps, according to “The Russian Revolution” by 113 Richard Pipes at Harvard University, though in reality there were probably many more. It was in this manner that Lenin built his GULAG archipelago.

 “Testament of Youth,” poignantly dramatizes lives shattered by Judeo Masonic First World War.
On July 1,1916, General Douglas Haig, a Freemason, began the Battle of the Somme which by November resulted in the death of one million white, "Christian"British patriots in their prime. Fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, lovers. War is a ruse by which the globalist satanic elite kills patriots under the guise of national duty.

About 10 million soldiers died in battle on both sides in World War One, one of the costliest wars in history.  The needless slaughter in trench warfare is usually portrayed by the Masonic-controlled media and education system as an unintended consequence. 

In fact, these wars are orchestrated by the Illuminati Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions to kill Christians in order to degrade Western civilization in advance of the Satanic NWO now clearly manifesting itself. (See, World War One- First Christian HolocaustRitual human sacrifice to their god Moloch may also be a factor.

All wars are designed to enrich and empower the bankers while destroying and demoralizing humanity. Warmongering “patriotism” is a ruse. The sooner gullible non-Satanists stop falling on a sword, the better.
I’m going to focus on the Battle of the Somme, one of the biggest battles of the first world war. My information is based on John Laffin’s British Butchers and Bunglers of World War One, (1988, p. 63ff.)

The Somme offensive (“The Big Push”) was intended to end the stalemate and win the war. The Allies had 700,000 men, a 7-1 numerical superiority. Haig and Rawlinson anticipated losing 500,000 men. 

The plan was simple: to bomb the Germans for five days and nights then walk to the enemy trench and kill the remaining soldiers or capture those who surrendered. 

However, after 5 days of bombing, the German trenches and their defences were barely scratched. The English neglected to reconnoitre or observe this from the air.  The Germans just had to shoot their machine guns, reload and shoot again. The same type of attack continued from the 1st of July until November 1916. Over a million men died; 58,000 on the first day.

On July 1 1916, 11 British divisions attacked on a 13-mile front. By 7.30 am the six German divisions finished breakfast, wiped their faces with their napkins, and carried their machine guns from comfortable deep cellars. They began spraying the attackers who were advancing in neat rows, “to maintain order.”

A German machine gunner wrote, “We were surprised to see them walking, we had never seen that before. The officers went in front. One was carrying a walking stick…When we started to fire, we just had to load and reload. They went down in their hundreds. We didn’t have to aim, we just fired into them. “

A German officer reported his impression of the attack. “Whole sections appeared to fall. All along the line, Englishmen could be seen throwing their arms into the air and collapsing, never to move again. Badly wounded rolled about in agony, while badly wounded crawled into shell-holes for shelter. “

John Laffin: “Of the 110,000 men who attacked, 60,000 were killed or wounded on this one day. About 20,000 lay dead between the lines. Haig and Rawlinson were directly responsible for the assumption bombardment would cut barbed wire and render the Germans vulnerable.  The Germans lost an estimated 8000 men on July 1. 2000 were taken prisoner.” (64) 

A hospital station dealt with 10,000 casualties in the first 48 hours. A surgeon wrote:  ”Streams of ambulances a mile long waited to be unloaded. The whole area of the camp, a field of six acres, was completely covered with stretchers placed side-by-side, each with its suffering or dying man. We surgeons were hard at it in the operating theatre, a good hut holding four tables. Occasionally we made a brief look around to select from the thousands of patients those few we had time to save. It was terrible. (73) 

Haig’s chronicler Colonel Boraston wrote that the attack, “bore out the conclusions of the British High Command, and amply justified the tactical methods employed.” (No doubt these men were all Freemasons.)

Laffin writes: “This is an outrageous statement. It is more accurate to call 1 July 1916, as H. L’Etang does, ‘probably the greatest disaster to British arms since Hastings….Certainly never before nor since has such wanton pointless carnage been seen…’ (70)

Laffin bemoans the  complete “absence of cleverness” in the military strategy. He emphasizes that, “high casualties were a basic rule of the game and simply had to be accepted.” (76)

Who knows how the world would be different if the cream of that generation of Christians had not been trampled into the mud of France in 1915-18?

There is simply no explanation for sending wave after wave of men to their slaughter other than that this was the deliberate goal. Any sane general would have stopped the attack as soon as it became apparent that the strategy was a failure. 

Western society is controlled by a satanic cult whose goal is to degrade and exploit humanity.
It’s time we stopped we being complicit in our own destruction.

CERN Breaking Records With Unprecedented Number of Particles In Record Time 
CERN is the evil program which will literally open the "gates of hell".   Our Lady said to wear her scapular and pray her rosary but how FEW take this message seriously.  I guess that is why 3/4 of the world will die in the 3 days of darkness...
Apocalypse 9: 1-5 with St. Jerome's commentary: "And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. [2] And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. [3] And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: [4] And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. [5] And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man. 

[1] "A star fall": This may mean the fall and apostasy of great and learned men from the true faith. Or a whole nation falling into error and separating from the church, not having the sign of God in their foreheads.
[1] "The key of the bottomless pit": That is, to the angel, not to the fallen star. To this angel was given the power, which is here signified by a key, of opening hell.
[3] "There came out locusts": These may be devils in Antichrist's time, having the appearance of locusts, but large and monstrous, as here described. 




An unprecedented number of particles has been reached in record time. Just five weeks after physics resumed, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is already running at full throttle. On Wednesday 28 June 2017 the LHC established yet another record-breaking high, with 2556 proton bunches circulating in each direction of the accelerator. The beams in the LHC are made up of bunches of protons, spaced seven metres (25 nanoseconds) apart, with each one containing more than 100 billion protons. 2556 is the maximum possible number of bunches that can be reached with the beam preparation method currently used.
The particle bunches that are delivered to the LHC are prepared and accelerated by a chain of four accelerators. Since last year, a new method to group and split the bunches enables the particles to be squeezed even closer together. With an equal number of protons, the beam diameter was reduced by 40 per cent. Denser bunches means a higher probability of collisions at the centre of the experiments.
This success has led to a new luminosityrecord for the LHC of 1.58x1034 cm-2s-1. This figure may not mean much to most of us, but it's crucial for the accelerator's experts. It measures the number of potential collisions per second and per unit of area . This new peak luminosity surpasses initial expectations defined by the original designs for the LHC, which hoped it could reach a maximum of 1x1034cm-2s-1.
A higher luminosity means more collisions for the experiments collecting data: in just a few weeks ATLAS and CMS stored more than 6 inverse femtobarns, over an eighth of the total anticipated for the whole year.
Nevertheless, the operators cannot sit on their hands. Many parameters can be tuned to further improve the luminosity.
Next week, the LHC and its experiments will take a short break for the first of the two technical stops planned for the year. This will be an opportunity to carry out maintenance.

THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS

 Marie-Julie announced the three days of darkness during which the infernal powers will be loosed and will execute all the enemies of God. "The crisis will explode suddenly; the punishments will be shared by all and will succeed one another without interruption ..." [January 4, 1884] "The three days of darkness will be on a THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Days of the Most Holy Sacrament, of the Cross and Our Lady ... three days less one night."

"The earth will be covered in darkness", says Our Lady on 20th of September 1882, "AND HELL WILL BE LOOSED ON EARTH. Thunder and lightning will cause those who have no faith or trust in My Power, to die of fear."

"During these three days of terrifying darkness, no windows must be opened, because no one will be able to see the earth and the terrible colour it will have in those days of punishment without dying at once ..."

"The sky will be on fire, the earth will split ... During these three days of darkness let the blessed candle be lighted everywhere, no other light will shine ..."

"NO ONE OUTSIDE A SHELTER.. will survive. The earth will shake as at the judgment and fear will be great. Yes, We will listen to the prayers of your friends; NOT ONE WILL PERISH. We will need them to publish the glory of the Cross ..." [December 8, 1882]

"THE CANDLES OF BLESSED WAX ALONE WILL GIVE LIGHT during this horrible darkness. ONE CANDLE alone will be enough for the duration of this night of hell ... In the homes of the wicked and blasphemers these candles will give NO LIGHT."

"And Our Lady states: "Everything will shake except the piece of furniture on which the blessed candle is burning. This will not shake. You will all gather around with the crucifix and my blessed picture. This is what will keep away this terror."

"During this darkness the devils and the wicked will take on THE MOST HIDEOUS SHAPES ... red clouds like blood will move across the sky. The crash of the thunder will shake the earth and sinister lightning will streak the heavens out of season. The earth will be shaken to its foundations. The sea will rise, its roaring waves will spread over the continent. .."

 "THE EARTH WILL BECOME LIKE A VAST CEMETERY. The bodies of the wicked and the just will cover the ground."

"Three-quarters of the population of the globe will disappear. Half the population of France will be destroyed."


"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church (Catholic), and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
[Matthew 16:18]

Media have identified the Vatican Monsignor who was caught red-handed during a gay and drug party in his apartment in the Vatican. It is Monsignor Luigi Capozzi (49), a collaborator of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, which is headed by pro-gay Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio who in the past made declarations about the "positive aspects" of gay couples.

Riposte Catholique calls Capozzi an "ardent supporter of Pope Francis". On linkedin.com he calls himself an "expert in canon law and dogmatic theology". Originally from Salerno, he was ordained in 1992 and belongs now to the Diocese of Palestrina near Rome.

In September 2016, Palestrina Bishop Domenico Sigalini complimented the two homosexuals who contracted the first gay pseudo-marriage in Rome after its introduction, "That two friends who love each other, have the same rights as any other couple is out of discussion.”

 40th Anniversary of the Priesthood of Monsignor Jean-Michel Faure

Sent by Monsignor Lefebvre as an apostle to our American lands, he was first Superior of the District of South America (FSSPX), Director of the Seminary of the Reja (FSSPX), District Superior of Mexico (FSSPX), and as Mgr. " Archbishop Lefebvre's right-hand arm in Latin America for decades, the Father enjoyed unlimited confidence on the part of the Archbishop (he was the only one who had access to his private correspondence) and in fact, it is said that Monsignor Lefebvre wanted to consecrate him Bishop, but The Father refused in humility. Thanks to this great friendship and trust, Father Faure had the grace to know and understand as few as our Founder . " By this fidelity to the good fight without compromises with the enemies of the catholic faith, was persecuted by the liberals that they copied the Brotherhood and they betrayed to the Founder.
 

But God had reserved for him the cross and the burden that honors him, the bishopric, when consecrated by Bishop Williamson.

Founder of the Priestly Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary (SAJM), he is also the director of the Saint Louis Grignion de Montfort International Seminary in Avrillé, France, following the path laid out by his teacher, Mons. Marcel Lefebvre.

God reward your efforts for the Catholic Faith, thank you Monsignor!

          Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)   
Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)
SOURCE
(Note: The following was one of the last interviews by Malachi Martin before his death in 1999.)

      Ever since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Power Elite have never given up on their feverish dream of a One World Government.

      Former Jesuit Malachi Martin's novel, Windswept House (Doubleday/ Main Street Books), offers a lurid behind the scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Roman Catholic Church as a foundation for a politico-religious New World Order.

      The plot of the novel involves a group of Church officials who scheme with a group of like-minded corporate executives to manipulate the Church into a ready-made infrastructure for a One World Religion -- a universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners.

      The new ecumenicalism is clothed in Globalist garb. The agenda includes promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to the complete secularization of religion. 


      The most outrageous and controversial premise of the novel -- described in great detail in the prologue -- is that a ceremony was performed in the Vatican in 1963 -- an occult ritual which enthroned the fallen archangel Lucifer as the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

      Does Dr. Martin believe that this enthronement actually took place in his novel, which could liberally be described as a roman a clef?

      "Yes, it did," he says emphatically. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind. But now the place, time, hour etc., are all obfuscated to protect the guilty and save the innocent."

      Was it common knowledge in the Vatican at the time? "Not common knowledge," explains Martin. "But I found out about it by being a member of the Vatican circles that learned these things. It's like everything else. I'm sure there are people floating around Washington, and they know an awful lot about what's going on. Someone says, 'how do you know that'? Well, it's just... we know it."

      The story ofWindswept House continues in present day Europe as an international group of conspirators spanning Church and State plots a one world government on behalf of Lucifer. So are readers to infer that no matter what happens, the Pope and the Church hierarchy are bound to serve the fallen angel?

      "No," explains Dr. Martin. "What it means is that for the moment, Lucifer the biggest archangel, the leader of the revolt against God, has a big in with certain Vatican officials. Enthronement doesn't mean that he rules. It means that they did their best to put him there. The ideal would be to have their man as Pope. In that case then Satan would be enthroned."

      The book goes on to describe how two brothers, one a priest and the other an investment banker, grapple with these awesome consequences as pawns in the game. Meanwhile the cabal of Globalist-oriented Vatican officials and European-based internationalists try to corner the Pope into voluntary resignation so that they can get their man in the Chair of Peter.

      This theme coincidentally is also the basis, albeit in non-fiction form, of Martin's book The Keys of This Blood: Pope John Paul II Versus Russia and the West for Control of the New World Order.

      The upshot? A One World Government is a fait accompli, he infers. What Dr. Martin calls the "millennium endgame" is a competition for a new global hegemony by the key Globalist players. What's interesting is that the novel appears to be a seamless transition from his previous non-fiction work. The reader then is put in the position of concluding that the New World Order is a done deal, that a One World Government is here and now and, as the expression goes, it's all over but the crying.

      But you wouldn't expect Globalist agit-prop from a former Jesuit. Or would you?



The Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican

 

And Who Is Malachi Martin?

      Author of 15 books on religious and geo-political topics, Malachi Martin is highly regarded and respected as a world renowned scholar.

      Trained in theology at Louvain, he received his doctorates in Semitic Languages, Archaeology and Oriental History. He subsequently studied at Oxford and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. From 1958 to 1964, he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the Jesuit cardinal Augustin Bea and Pope John XXIII, as well as a professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute.

      Malachi Martin is the author of many best-selling books including Vatican, Hostage to the Devil, The Jesuits, The Final Conclave, and The Keys of This Blood. Also he was a Roman Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus until 1964 when he left the Jesuits. Why?

      "It was a grave decision," he says. "I could see the way the Church was going, the way churchmen were going in their decisions and all the anchors I had for morality and zeal were being undone. Then when the Vatican Council started in 1962, I could see the way the flow of opinion was going in the Vatican by a group of cardinals from Belgium, Germany and France. They were maneuvering the Church into totally new ecclesiology. I couldn't accept this."

      As an advisor to three Popes, Dr. Martin has had his fair share of romanita, that uniquely Roman methodology of connivance and power politicking. "I started off as an advisor on Judaism," he continues. "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well. They wanted someone to explain it, since they were studying the whole question of Jewish-Christian relations. So I was drafted into helping with that."

      And the outcome? "They produced a document in which they sort of absolved the Jewish people of the death of Christ."

      Based on his research? "No, not on my research," argues Martin. "I was only a cog in the wheel. I didn't agree with the final document either. It went too far. And then there were conclusions about the need for Catholics to study Judaism and get to know them better."

So this was the ecumenicalization of the Church that was going on?

      "That's it in one word," concurs Martin. "And I couldn't agree with the total effect of all that because I thought they went too far."

      Dr. Martin was also involved with Vatican intelligence. What did he do? "Just assessing things in Israel, whatever anti-Christianity there was amongst the Israelis. There was and still is. And what was the position of the Arabs. I used to live in Jordan and Lebanon and Egypt. I knew those places very well and could assess the position of the Church and the various Christian communities."

      The many-talented Dr. Martin is also known as a practicing exorcist and has even written a book about the subject called Hostage to the Devil.

      He says he came up against evil as a force in the world in an uncontrovertible undeniable way in his first exorcism.

      "I was in Cairo and it was evil," Dr. Martin recalls.

      "You know you only have to enter its presence, or for it to enter your presence to know that you are in the presence of something which is summarily evil."

      "It's invisible. You can't see it. But you know it wants you dead. Dead. Dead. And in a horrible way," he repeats in a hypnotic voice. "It's touching your very bones by its presence."

      So how does he explain the phenomenon of demonic possession? "Free will", says Dr. Martin. "For the first time in the work we have been doing for thirty-one years in this corner of the globe, during the last ten years or so, we have found young men and women thirty-somethings or twenty-somethings coming forward and saying, 'Listen I made a pact with the devil. I wanted this woman. I wanted this man. I wanted this job. I wanted this money. I wanted this, this, this, and I made a pact and he gave it to me and now I can't get free of him. He dominates my will. Please liberate me. And then people get to it by means of things like a ouija board or by spiritual seances or channeling."

      Malachi Martin is also known as a serious scholar of apocryphal writings, having authored a book called The Scribal Character of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      (As an impressive mark of his erudition, Malachi Martin even knew about the alternative Abraham and Isaac story in one of the so-called Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Jubilees. In this unsanctioned version of Genesis, Abraham is commanded to kill his son, but not by God. Instead it is Mastema, a fallen angel known as "the accusing angel" as well as the Tempter and Executioner, who tells the Hebrew patriarch to do the dirty deed. To his credit, of course, Abraham doesn't slaughter his firstborn. When asked why the Genesis version omits details of the fallen angel Mastema as the instigator of Abraham's test, however, even Malachi Martin admits ignorance.)

Bernard Janzen "Fr. Malachi Martin: Camouflaged Apostasy"


The Globalist Imperative

      Like the prissy intellectuals of the 1930s enamored by National Socialism (as well as Fabian Socialism), the current fin de siecle version of internationalists are likewise paving their own road to a Globalist hell with good intentions.

      Using the Hegelian model of history, first there was Capitalism (thesis), then Communism (antithesis), and now there's the New World Order (synthesis), risen from the ashes of the Cold War and the formerly 'competing' ideologies.

      International socialism or corporate fascism (aka Globalism) is, in fact, the trendy philosophy for the end of the millennium. In his book Megatrends 2000, Olympian futurist John Naisbitt calls it "free market socialism," a hybrid economic system that combines welfare state policies with multinational corporate business on a global level.

      Globalism, however, as a secular religion, has a dogma all its own. Its primary belief system is based on the notion that the usefulness of the nation-state is over. In other words, national sovereignty is a thing of the past and a One World Government is inevitable. But... this effort, at least for now, must be couched in cryptic language for the unwashed masses. Otherwise they'd get too upset.

      Globalist spokesman Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Columbia University professor, President Carter's former National Security advisor, and founder of the Trilateral Commission spoke at the Gorbachev Foundation's State of the World Forum in 1995, "We cannot leap into world government in one quick step," he said. "(It) requires a process of gradually expanding the range of democratic cooperation." In plain language, that means people must be further indoctrinated.

      Eurocrat Jean-Marie Guehenno hints at this global hegemony or one world totalitarianism calling it an "empire without an emperor." Guehenno wrote The End of the Nation-State (1995) which was called La fin de la democratie (The End of Democracy) in the original French version. Since nation states are obsolete, he claims, "'wise men' capable of thinking through the finite world that has become our common lot" must be entrusted to guide us into what he calls an 'Imperial Age'." Presumably Guehenno counts himself as one of the ranks of "The Wise Men."

      Most striking though is a chapter in Guehenno's book called "Religions without God", which evokes the image of the humanist shaking his fist at an empty sky. The ultimate reduction of this conundrum for the internationalists is to hint at a "global politburo" to run the world as posited by Paul Mazur in Unfinished Business (1979).

      According to Dr. Martin's nomenclature, Guehenno is one of the Transnationalists -- bureaucrats who believe that Globalism is based on "the development of new and ever wider interrelationships between the governments of the world".

      On the other hand, the Internationalists are "individuals who operate from a power base of finance, industry and technology". Together these groups are the Globalists, the social engineers conniving for the convergence of East and West in the so-called New World Order.


Luciferian Geo-Politics

      For a Churchman, Malachi Martin shows a remarkable familiarity and understanding of Luciferianism, a belief system which hold human wisdom, secular humanism if you will, as its paragon and the fallen archangel Lucifer as the Prince who will rule the world.

      Readers ofWindswept Houseare given the impression that the old traditional Catholic Church is good because the protagonists, Christian Gladstone and his mother are defending it, while we know that the Church has been dedicated to Lucifer. Faced with these two alternatives, the conclusion is that the Roman Catholic Church run by Lucifer is good -- a classic (and incredibly sophisticated) double bind, which is constantly reinforced in the reader's mind throughout the 646 pages of the novel.

      "Well, the Church itself has not been given to Lucifer," argues Dr. Martin. "He was enthroned in the Vatican by Vatican officials. That doesn't mean he possesses the Church yet. The Church anyway is an ambiguous term because it either means the actual physical bloc of churches, convents, libraries, academies, parish houses and cathedrals, the physical plant. Or it means the group of faithful in the state of grace whether they are alive in Purgatory or in Heaven. That is the body of Christ."

      "There has always been, since the fourth century, this organization set up by the Emperor Constantine. But that is not essential for the Church. The Church can exist without it. So that mystical body of Christ has not fallen into Lucifer's hands. The organization to some degree has. That's the difficulty."

      What about the book putting his readers in a double bind? You're presented with two choices. Either A. The Luciferian-controlled Roman Catholic Church. Or B. The Luciferian-controlled New World Order. So where does Malachi Martin find himself?

      "The New World Order is definitely won by Luciferian believers," says Dr. Martin. "There's no doubt about that."

      And then he starts to rationalize their modus operandi.

      "But these are men who came to be and are in their actions at least, humanitarian and philanthropic. They want to wipe out hunger and disease. They want to limit the population of the world. They believe the world is headed for mass starvation. They also want to enter into education. They would like to have an alliance with the Roman Catholic Church and with another pope. This one -- they know would stand in their way in regards to population control because he is deadstart against abortion, contraceptives, genetic engineering."

      And what about "The Process" he refers to in his book?

      Dr. Martin replies that it's the "Luciferian Process" of secularizing every religious mind so that the common mind today would be one which regarded the earth as a planned paradise to be built up. There is no God above the skies, no heaven, and there is no hell beneath the earth. It's complete secularization."

      (John Lennon's classic rock anthem "Imagine" comes to mind. "Imagine there's no country," he sang. "It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion too.")

      But do the Luciferians have a timetable?

      "We are now according to the official doctrine of the Luciferians in what they call "the Availing Time". They have a tradition that in these years they can avail of the time to install the Prince, who is Lucifer, as the greatest power on earth in charge of human civilization and adored by men."

      And to what end?

      "To exalt the power of Lucifer. That is the end in itself. It's the Luciferian purpose. If they don't do it in these years, then it is put off sine die, without resolution. They are very keen on getting it done."

      And what are the next steps in this "Process"?

      "The purpose is to secularize education completely," continues Dr. Martin. "And to eliminate from considerations of life and death -- medicine, sociality, finance, birth, development etc., to free that of any religious presumption whatever. To free it from the superstition of religion so that man is dealt with scientifically and humanly. And that is 'the Process'. 'The Process' is to make the human mind accept that... 'The Process' is whereby all education, primary secondary and higher, college university and all public activity is completely rid of all religious presumptions."

      "There is a layer of satanism, of satanist ritual which prepares people for perfect Luciferian adoption. They have covens and sacrifices and rites. The Luciferians have no rites, you know."

      So dabbling with satanism in these rituals leads to a different form of "commitment" which is Luciferianism?

      "It is a preparation for Luciferianism and there are reversals sometimes," claims Dr. Martin. "You will find a crowd of Luciferians having a satanic ritual as a reminder of things. But they have all passed through in a sense and that involves three things: the infliction of pain without flinching, the infliction of death without flinching, and the use of fire."


Windswept House — Message and Subtext

      In Windswept House, Christians and Luciferians clash over the remains of the Roman Catholic Church. It's a controversial and provocative story, a political thriller with metaphysical implications. It delves into the depths of treachery, intrigue and Machiavellian politics at the highest levels of the Church. As a fact-based novel with frequent lengthy asides on real historical geopolitical events like the fall of the Soviet Empire and the Helsinki Accords,Windswept House is a vehicle for one simple message -- the New World Order is here and now.

      While a group of cardinals scheme to force the Pope to resign his office so they'll be able to install a man who will do the Luciferians' bidding, a priest, Christian Gladstone is called to Rome. Cardinal Maestroianni, a power player and one of the leaders of the cabal, enlists the priest to poll bishops regarding closer ties with the European Economic Community. In fact, however, the Cardinal is assessing the timing for a conclave in which the Slavic Pope would be forced to resign because he has become a stumbling block in the Luciferians' plans.

      From the business side, Paul Gladstone, Christian's brother and an expert in international relations working at a Globalist law firm, is also unknowingly recruited to bring the Luciferian plan to fruition. When the brothers find out they are both being unwittingly used in the schemes of the Luciferians, they join forces. Christian then must reach the Pope to tell him that he is being manipulated to abdicate the Chair of Peter.

      Will the Pope resign? And will he exorcise the Church in time?

      The subtext? It doesn't really make a hell of a lot of a difference. 

Father Malachi Martin: End of Christian Civilization



The Future of the Church Militant

      In his novelWindswept House Malachi Martin expostulates his readers regarding the reasons why the "Slavic Pope" (Pope John Paul II) is so ineffectual. But what is the Pope's agenda as he sees it?

      "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons, has sought after one thing and one thing only," says Dr. Martin. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. When he went to churches all over the world, member churches of the Catholic Church in all the countries, he was bolstering the reputation of the papacy and he was speaking Catholic dogma, Catholic belief, Catholic morals. But in reality he was reaching out to everybody. He wanted to make friends with everybody."

      And what about the widespread homosexuality, pedophilia and satanic rituals in the Church, common knowledge he avers known to all Vatican insiders? Since as he wrote Christ is no longer honored in the tabernacle, what does he think will happen?

      "Once the tabernacle is emptied of Christ's real presence, then the Church ceases to be holy and therefore it's going to be entered by the opposite power, Lucifer," says Martin. "And this is taking place now. Not widespread, but it is taking place. There's no doubt about that."

      So will the Church fall on its own? "It's disintegrating slowly," says Martin. "As an organization, it's being marginalized sociopolitically and culturally. And religiously, it's weakening and decaying, obsolescing..."

      "If you look at any country today there are three identifiable components of that State. One, the government. Two, there is industry. Third, there are what we call NGOs, the non-governmental organizations. That's everything from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to the Catholic Church. And they're just simply lumped together, voluntary associations with as much power as they can grasp but of no special importance. Now fifty or seventy years ago, when an ethical or moral question arose, people and governments looked to the churches. Now they don't any longer."

      And yet another sensitive question. Something doesn't add up. Malachi Martin's a priest. He's supposed to fight evil. Yet his bookWindswept Houseis clear evidence that he's thrown in the towel.

      "Well I don't see evidence of having thrown in the towel," protests Dr. Martin. "Because there's a lot I'm being made to pay for, in the sense that the writer obviously likes and reveres this Pope even though he disagrees with him. The writer also believes in the blessed sacrament. He believes in the Pope's infallibility. He believes in salvation. He believes in hell. He believes in the evil of the devil."

      So why doesn'tWindswept Houseend with Christ victorious in the book?

      Does Dr. Martin believe that the Luciferian forces have won already?

      "No. No. No," insists Dr. Martin. "This is an interim book. It ends in a big doubt -- everybody waiting." This must be what they call the European ending -- as opposed to the American ending where all the loose ends are tied up.

      Then the story shifts into "The Devil, Er, I Mean the Editor Made Me Do It". "The publisher said, 'listen the story isn't finished yet,'" says Dr. Martin. "I had a lovely glorious ending. I had a vision. I had a marvellous thing over the Alps. He cut it out."

      This is an actual editorial decision? "Yes," says Dr. Martin.

      But with all due respect, it almost sounds like Luciferian tampering. Not that anyone wants a saccharine ending. So are readers to conclude that the Luciferians won because of the passivity of the Pope in defending the Church?

      "Well, they haven't won yet," says Dr. Martin on a slightly upbeat note. "We're waiting for this man to do something. He's the Vicar of Christ. I know I'm defending him but..."

      "Readers who call me or write me say, what do we do now? I say, read my next book," he continues.

      With Martin's death on July 28, 1999, his suggestion seems to be a moot point.

      "So perhaps editorially," he concludes, "it was the right decision, but religiously it was the wrong decision. I don't know."

      It's been said that "by their fruits, ye shall know them." Malachi Martin's assent to the so-called "process" is the tangible "fruit" of Windswept House.

      Is the novel a prophecy? Or is it just a warning?

      In any case, the New (Luciferian) World Order that Martin describes puts a religious spin to the whole "process" of history.

It's also clear -- the book is a Luciferian masterpiece.

          Fusión de Servired, 4B y Euro 6000: así será el monopolio de los cajeros automáticos   

Cajero automático

La medida llevaba gestándose más de un año: las tres grandes redes españolas de cajeros automáticos (Servired, 4B y Euro 6000) se fusionarán en una única entidad que ejercerá un monopolio prácticamente total en el servicio de retirada de efectivo. Servired, la mayor de las tres, controlará el 66% de la nueva sociedad.

Esta operación no es sorprendente: en buena parte de Europa los cajeros están operados por monopolios nacionales participados por el sector bancario local. La red alemana Girocard o la francesa Carte Bleue llevan décadas controlando la práctica totalidad de los terminales en sus respectivos países. En Holanda, donde los pagos con tarjeta ya superan a los realizados en efectivo, los grandes bancos se plantean no solo integrar la red sino ceder los cajeros a una entidad conjunta con una marca única. España se suma ahora a esta tendencia.

La empresa resultante operará casi 64.000 cajeros y tendrá 72 millones de tarjetas de crédito y débito en circulación. Los mayores accionistas serán los tres grandes bancos del país: Santander (con el Popular), BBVA y CaixaBank; que también son los que aportan mayor número de cajeros, tarjetas y clientes al conglomerado. ¿Qué consecuencias tendrá el monopolio de los cajeros para los usuarios?

La guerra de los cajeros está aquí para quedarse

La gran ventaja técnica de las redes de cajeros es que permiten realizar operaciones a clientes de todas las entidades participantes, al margen de la retirada de efectivo (por ejemplo consultas de saldo, recargas y similares). Además, la mayoría de redes ofrecen ventajas comerciales: los clientes de todos los bancos asociados pueden retirar dinero gratis (o por una comisión ínfima) en toda la red. En España también sucedía esto: los clientes de cualquier banco asociado a 4B, por ejemplo, podían sacar dinero gratis en cualquier terminal 4B. Hasta que comenzó la guerra de los cajeros.

A finales de 2015, los tres grandes de la banca española decidieron unilateralmente acabar con las ventajas para clientes de entidades asociadas a sus redes de cajeros. Comenzaron a cobrar 2 euros por transacción a clientes de otros bancos, independientemente de la red a la que pertenecieran. Se acababa así la razón de ser de Servired, 4B y Euro 6000 desde el punto de vista comercial.

Nada parece indicar que la política de comisiones en los cajeros vaya a cambiar tras la fusión

Nada parece indicar que la política basada en cobrar a clientes de otros bancos vaya a cambiar tras la fusión. Las entidades con menos cajeros se verán obligadas a mantener acuerdos con otras mayores –o de ofrecer alternativas como el cashback– si quieren que sus clientes puedan retirar efectivo gratuitamente.

¿Habrá ventajas para los consumidores?

Con la integración de las tres redes, se simplifican los pagos con tarjeta en España. El coste real de las transacciones se reducirá, al eliminarse la necesidad de interconectar distintas redes (por ejemplo, para pagar con una tarjeta Servired en una tienda cuyo TPV está conectado a Euro 6000). Pero está por ver si esta bajada repercutirá en las comisiones que deben pagar los comercios, una de las principales razones por las que muchos aún son reacios a aceptar este método de pago.

Cardpayment Pago con tarjeta

En cuanto a los cajeros automáticos, al estar todos conectados a la misma red, aumentarán las posibilidades de realizar operaciones (al margen de retiradas de efectivo) independientemente de la entidad a la que pertenezca la tarjeta. Y aunque en principio los grandes bancos no vayan a cambiar su política de cobrar a clientes de otras entidades, cabría la posibilidad de que las autoridades de la competencia decidan rebajar las tarifas máximas (actualmente 2 euros por transacción) para autorizar la fusión.

De momento, todo son conjeturas. Está por ver hasta qué punto la integración de todos los cajeros reduce las comisiones para pequeños comercios y clientes individuales. Lo que sí está claro es que la banca española reducirá costes con esta fusión, y que el nuevo conglomerado será uno de los mayores operadores de cajeros y tarjetas de la Unión Europea.

          Vik Muniz racconta Venezia a Venezia   
Venezia, si sa, lascia sempre senza fiato. Ed è proprio alla Serenissima che Vik Muniz, noto artista e fotografo contemporaneo, dedica le immagini della sua nuova strabiliante mostra: Afterglow, Pictures of Ruins. Visitabile al secondo piano di Palazzo Cini fino al 24 luglio, il cuore della mostra è un’esclusiva raccolta di nove opere realizzate dall’artista brasiliano ispirate ai grandi capolavori della galleria, tutti parte della tradizione della pittura veneziana, tra cui spiccano nomi quali Francesco Guardi, Dosso Dossi e Canaletto. Ad esse si accompagna la serie del 2002 delle Carceri d’Invanzione di Piranesi, accompagnata da una stampa originale di Piranesi già parte della collezione Cini. È certamente un’occasione unica quella di poter far nuovamente parlare le opere del passato sfruttando la voce della contemporaneità. La scelta di Vik Muniz è poi tra le più azzeccate: oltre ad avere già conoscenza visiva e legame affettivo con le opere dell’esposizione, l’artista è stato capace di scegliere un linguaggio nuovo e per niente scontato. Ha infatti deciso di riprodurre le opere dei grandi maestri con ritagli di altre opere scelte dai manuali di storia dell’arte non solo per i colori, ma anche per le immagini che contengono. Non ci si poteva del resto […]
          La strage dei Manzoni a Lugo, Ravenna   
Fra il 7 e l'8 luglio 1945, di notte, accadde a Lugo ( Ravenna), una strage famigliare analoga per medesime caratteristiche a quella che accadde a Savona, alla famiglia Biamonti e alla sua domestica , Elena Nervo nel maggio del 45.
Anche in questo caso di notte, i criminali che sterminarono la famiglia Manzoni erano, guarda caso, partigiani comunisti e anche in questo caso, tutte le cose di valore di proprietà, furono trovate successivamente nelle case degli assassini.
La notte del 7 luglio una banda di partigiani rossi, irrompe in una villa patrizia di Lugo, all'interno vi sono la Contessa Beatrice Manzoni e i suoi tre figli, (Giacomo, Luigi e Reginaldo), la domestica della casa, Francesca Anconelli, ed il cane di famiglia, tutti vengono sequestrati dagli uomini armati e fatti uscire dalla casa che è successivamente posta sotto sequestro dal CLN, non si sa per quale motivo.
Quindi i banditi comunisti, portano il gruppo famigliare in una tenuta agricola vicina, presso Alfonsine, e lì provvedono a sterminarli con modalità a dir poco sadiche, i tre figli , vengono soppressi a colpi di pistola alla testa, al torace, mentre la Contessa e la domestica sono trucidate con ferocia bestiale a colpi di bastone, anche il cane non viene risparmiato e sarà sepolto in una fossa comune ad un metro di profondità, assieme ai suoi padroni, per impedirgli di ritrovare con il suo fiuto la famiglia che condivideva.
Il movente della strage potrebbe essere ricercato ricercato nella simpatia che la nobile famiglia nutriva, anche se solo in parte, verso la Repubblica Sociale Italiana, ma le vere motivazione stanno nelle sostanze economiche in possesso dei Manzoni che interessavano a un gruppo di partigiani comunisti i quali se ne volevano impossessare, tutto qui. Fu una rapina che si concluse con una strage.
Gli assassini non si fermarono all'eccidio e alla spoliazione dei beni dei Manzoni ma iniziarono un vero e proprio depistaggio per scoraggiare i parenti dal cercare i Manzoni. Sparsero la voce che non si trattava di una strage ma bensì di un allontanamento volontario.
Solo la tenacia di una giovane nipote, la Contessina Valeria Manzoni riuscì a far proseguire le indagini, dopo che lei si recò alla villa dei Manzoni in frazione Frascata a Lavezzola e la trovò vuota ed abbandonata. Quando i partigiani comunisti capirono il pericolo che Valeria rappresentava per loro , progettarono di eliminare anche lei in due diverse occasioni, ma la ragazza non era stupida e non cadde nei tranelli che essi le avevano teso e riuscì a dribblare il sicario mandato a Bologna, dove abitava, per liquidarla.
I Carabinieri dopo la nuova denuncia, nel 1948, iniziarono le indagini e nel corso di alcune perquisizioni trovarono dei mobili che erano appartenuti ai Manzoni in case di proprietà di alcuni partigiani, uno dei quali, Primo Cassani detto Togo, sottoposto a stringente interrogatorio confessò l'accaduto e portò i Carabinieri al podere ove erano stati occultati i corpi delle vittime che vennero finalmente esumati.
L'attenzione degli inquirenti si accentrò su una dozzina di partigiani e sul loro capo, tale Silvio Pasi, dirigente del P.C.I. nonché membro della Camera del Lavoro. Cassani intanto non si fermava alla prima confessione e fece i nomi degli altri responsabili della strage, in primis Silvio Pasi, poi Gagliardi Santino, Graziani Pompeo, Canotti Olindo, Casselli Paolo, Coccoli Leonida, Tamburini Fausto, i fratelli Martini, Bagnaresi Gianprimo, Ricci Rino, Salami Marino, Donigaglia Dergo, e Guerra Luigi.
Sette di essi fuggirono in Cecoslovacchia, il porto franco dove tutti gli assassini comunisti trovavano rifugio anche se nello squallore più totale.
Nel 53 fu celebrato il processo e ben 13 ergastoli vennero distribuiti agli assassini, ma per effetto della amnistia Togliatti furono ridotti a 19 anni di cui solo 5 effettivamente scontati e in terzo grado ad Ancona tutti furono assolti per insufficenza di rove.
Nel 62, il capo, Pasi morì a 51 anni, altro parallelo con l'assassino dei Biamonti, Luigi Rossi che anch'esso se ne andò ancora giovane divorato da un tumore al cervello.

Purtroppo il Comune di Lugo gli tributò funerali solenni a spese dei cittadini, nonostante tutti sapessero quello che aveva fatto e negli anni seguenti gli intitolò addirittura una via, anche se in periferia e contornata da appena otto case.

          hell for you!!!   
Two non muslim men were on a plane on a business trip when a Muslim couple boarded
the plane and were seated right in front of them. The two men, eager to
have some fun, started talking loudly. "My boss is sending me to Saudi
Arabia", the one said, "But I don't want to go...too many Muslims
there!"

The Muslim couple noticeably heard and grew uncomfortable. The other guy
laughed, "Oh, yeah, my boss wanted to send me to Pakistan but I
refused...WAY too many Muslims!" Smiling, the first man said, "One time
I was in Iran but I HATED the fact that there were so many Muslims!"
The couple fidgeted.

The other guy responded, "Oh, yeah...you can't go ANYWHERE to get away
from them...the last time I was in FRANCE I ran into a bunch of them
too!"
The first guy was laughing hysterically as he added, "That is why you'll
never see me in Indonesia... WAY too many Muslims!"

At this, the Muslim man turned around and responded politely, "Why don't
you go to Hell?", he asked, "I heard there's NO Muslim THERE!"

          French Bank BNP Paribas Accused Of Complicity In Rwandan Genocide   
Three civil society groups in France have filed a lawsuit against French banking giant BNP Paribas, accusing it of complicity in the 1994 Rwandan genocide that killed more than 800,000 people. The groups Sherpa, the Collectif des Parties Civiles pour le Rwanda and Ibuka France said Thursday that the bank transferred $1.3 million that was used to purchase weapons, in violation of a U.N. arms embargo. They say it's the first lawsuit of its kind against a bank in France. The Rwandan genocide started after the plane of Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, an ethnic Hutu, was shot down. Hutu militias then massacred members of the minority Tutsi ethnic group over the course of 100 days. BNP Paribas has not addressed the allegations. "We became aware of the complaint through media," it said in an emailed statement to NPR. "At the moment, we do not have enough information regarding the complaint to be able to comment on it." The groups allege that one month after the U.N. implemented an arms

          Recipe for Disaster!   

Being in the gelato business can be a bit stressful when the cold weather sets in. I find myself trying to distract myself with things that force you to stay inside. It is my version of yelling "LaLaLa!" with my fingers in my ears. I try to trick my sanity by having a reason to stay inside and ignore the icy temperatures. When the weather is breaking, I find that I am humming at a pretty high tone. I know that dogs in neighboring homes are rolling in agony with the frequency I am emitting. Like I have said in the past, y'all know I'm crazy.

So it is raining on Sunday, John's car was totaled while being parked across the street (teenager smashed into it) and the kids are stir crazy. What to do.... My mind is saying, it is supposed to be spring, you should be training for the Broad Street Run, why are your kids playing soccer in the room upstairs and not outside?!?!? See? Ca-razy. So I do what any crazy person does-I make ricotta and mozzarella cheese and try to perfect my bolognese sauce.

The ricotta cheese was pretty easy. I heated up the milk to 200 degrees, let it cool down to 90 degrees, added rennet and I let it sit. After some time the milk began to coagulate and I had ricotta.

On to my Bolognese. John's birthday was in September. He is hard to buy gifts for. Right now, if I were Oprah, I would buy him a car. I am not, sadly. Anywho, it was his birthday and I could not decide what to buy him. He is always yapping about making his own sausage. So...I bought him a meat grinder. It is awesome! I love it. We do not eat a lot of meat (about once a week), but the difference purchasing your own meat and grinding it makes is astounding. My meatballs are spectacularly soft and resilient. I love grinding meat. Sounds so dirty, but I do.

So, go out and get yerself some high quality meat. There is nothing wrong with eating meat, there is just something really wrong with our meat industry. These are some great options in Philly. If you have the luxury of going to Reading Terminal Market, check out the meat producers. Some are your run of the mill standard butcher, others have locally, humanly, all natural meat. My personal favorite is the Fair Food Stand. They have exceptional products and the people behind this organization are not only smart, good business people, but I really really like them. They do not sell food with judgment. They love to educate and want to help, not preach. Tell them what you are looking for and they will help. If they do not have the product you are looking for, they know where to get it. They continually assist me in finding farmers and connect me to like minded peeps in my field. Trust. If you do not have this luxury, and it is a luxury, Whole Foods carries local beef and pork. Before grinding, it is best to get your meat really really cold. 10 to 15 minutes in the freezer is good. For bolognese, I like 2 pounds of chuck and 1 pound of boneless pork shoulder. Cut into 1 inch cubes. See above?

I like to grind the meat with the medium plate twice. Yup twice. Twice through really minces up the meat and fat with out making mush. Hate mush.

Cut up in small dice:
1 large onion
4 ribs of celery
4 carrots
Saute all above in some olive oil. When it is soft and your onion is transparent, add ground beef, hefty pinch of salt and pepper and a good grinding of nutmeg.

Stir, stir, stir.....

When the meat has lost it's pink color, add
1 cup of whole milk.
Let milk bubble away until gone, baby gone. You will know.

Add
1 cup of nice white wine
Let bubble away.

Add Two Cans of high quality canned tomatoes. I love Francesca San Marzano. Crush them before you add.

Stir, stir, stir.

Let cook at a slow simmer all the day long. The fat will start to rise to the top of the sauce. Skim that disgusting fat off! Make sure you have a delicious hunk of bread around to dip into your sauce all day long. It needs testing. If your sauce seems too thick, add a bit of water. Make adjustments for salt. Test alot. Make sure you have a nice big loaf of ciabatta. Trust.

Serve with some big pasta, pecorino romano cheese, dabs of fresh ricotta and a colossal salad.

Disaster outside? Make bolognese. And yes, I know, the grinder was for John. I cannot just let it sit there, lonely next to my kitchen aid. It was begging to be used. John is happy.

La musique des migrants dans les camps

Migrantinnen-musik in den migrantenlagern

Faire de l’art en situation d’urgence
Musik machen in ausnahmesituationen
*  *  *
Publié le mardi 20 juin 2017 par Céline Guilleux
RÉSUMÉ
Cette université d’été a deux objectifs. le premier est d'explorer un secteur mal étudié de l’ethnologie comme la musique dans les camps de transit. S’il existe une abondante littérature historienne et musicologique sur la musique dans les camps de concentration et dans les camps d’extermination, rares sont les études qui portent sur les pratiques musiciennes. Le second objectif est de construire une démarche comparative afin de mesurer la singularité d’une observation ponctuelle sur ce que l’on appelle la crise des migrants en Europe : Paris, Baigorri, Calais, Dunkerque (France), Friedland (Göttingen, Allemagne), M’Bera (Mauritanie), Mentao (Burkina Faso), Zaatari (Jordanie).  
ANNONCE

But 

Cette université d’été a pour titre « La musique des migrants dans les camps. Faire de l’art en situation d’urgence ». Elle a deux objectifs : 
  • explorer un secteur mal étudié de l’ethnologie : la musique dans les camps de transit. S’il existe une abondante littérature historienne et musicologique sur la musique dans les camps de concentration et dans les camps d’extermination (Dick Walda, Charles Van West, Shmuel Gogol, Emilio Jani, Gabriele Knapp, Annette Wieviorka, Philip Bohlman, Pierre-Emmanuel Dauzat & Hélios Azoulay) rares sont les études qui portent sur les pratiques musiciennes ;  
  • construire une démarche comparative afin de mesurer la singularité d’une observation ponctuelle sur ce que l’on appelle la crise des migrants en Europe : Paris, Baigorri, Calais, Dunkerque (France), Friedland (Göttingen, Allemagne), M’Bera (Mauritanie), Mentao (Burkina Faso), Zaatari (Jordanie). 

Argument

 Au mois de mai 2013, Awet Andemicael, étudiante en théologie de l’université de Yale publie sur le site de l’UNHCR un article marquant : The arts in refugee camps: ten good reasons. De la prise en charge de soi aux techniques d’apprentissage et à l’agency, ces raisons visent à légitimer l’action des ONG pour la musique. Pourtant, ces raisons sont insatisfaisantes. Car le raisonnement est élaboré à partir des catégories de l’action humanitaire et non à partir du vécu des populations.  
  1. Cette université d’été renverse la perspective. Et plutôt que de partir des catégories instituées pour examiner de quelle façon elles s’incarnent dans la réalité, nous partons de l’engagement ethnographique pour examiner les processus d’institution des catégories, ce qui permet d’organiser ensuite, mais ensuite seulement, une montée en généralité à partir de la collection des cas.  
  2. Par ailleurs, nous prenons nos distances avec les clichés sur les bienfaits prêtés à la musique et à l’art thérapie. Nous examinons, au prix d’observations ethnographiques, situées et contextualisées, la façon dont la musique modifie la vie de chacun et celle des collectifs impliqués.  
  3. Enfin, nous questionnons l’ontologie de la musique. Des travaux antérieurs nous ont permis d’entériner le fait que la musique est subjective du point de vue ontologique et objective du point de vue épistémique. Cette fois, nous soumettons la question « qu’est-ce que la musque pour qui la pratique et l’écoute ? » à l’enquête ethnographique.  

Ancrages situationnels  

Bien des chercheurs qui ont mené ces analyses sur les pratiques artistiques dans des camps se sont d’abord confrontés à ces situations au prix d’un engagement citoyen. Dans ces situations d’anomie, ils ont rencontré « la musique », et ceux qui la faisaient être. Dès lors, ces migrants qu’un élan compassionnel faisait prendre pour « de pauvres malheureux » devenaient dans le regard de l’ethnographe attentif, par la force de la performance musicienne, par les habiletés incorporées et les références culturelles actualisées, des artistes virtuoses.   
Dans des contextes qui rendent toute communication verbale difficile en raison de l’étanchéité des langues, la musique et la danse rendent possible le partage, restaurent une forme de symétrie de l’échange. La profession de foi de Natacha Bouchart, maire de Calais, résonne : « Accueillir des migrants, ça peut être une richesse culturelle exceptionnelle » (Libération, 20 octobre 2015). Pourquoi donc la musique, alors que chacun se trouve « maintenu là, dans l’inachèvement d’un parcours de mobilité, ni immigré ni émigré mais suspendu en migration » (M. Agier, 2014) ?  
Cette rencontre de jeunes chercheurs propose de travailler à partir d’études de cas.

Études de cas 

Paris, Foyer de Travailleurs Migrants du 19e arrondissement  

Un foyer de travailleurs migrants (FTM) est une structure d’hébergement qui accueille aujourd’hui des « hommes célibataires » de Mauritanie, du Mali et du Sénégal. On peut y cuisiner, se laver, dormir (et repartir travailler). Or, malgré les conditions de promiscuité, on y fait aussi de la musique. Car l’invité invite. « Invitation » est le terme par lequel les habitants de foyer désignent le fait d’accueillir dans leur chambre un griot qui vienne chanter leur nom avec son luth ngoni. « L’invitation » est une occasion musicale de rencontre. Ce n’est pas la seule. Car à une autre échelle, des moments de retrouvailles et de partage culturel sont organisés dans des salles des fêtes louées par des associations proches des habitants de foyers. Ces espaces se convertissent en lieux d’échanges, d’assemblées générales, de projets et en studio d’enregistrement. Il en est ainsi de centres sociaux et culturels où sont organisés ces journées culturelles, ces repas et ces occasions de musique. 

M’Bera, Mauritanie  

Février 2012. Les habitants du Nord Mali fuient le conflit armé. L’UNHCR installe 400.000 réfugiés Touaregs et Arabes dans des camps aux frontières de la Mauritanie, de l’Algérie, du Burkina Faso et du Niger. M’Berra est le plus important : 80.000 personnes. Ici, le quotidien s’organise. Au- delà des questions sanitaires et nutritionnelles, il y a le désir partagé de célébrer des événements en commun. Il n’y a pas de tabaski sans musique, ni de fin de ramadan. Le tinde et l’imzad sont fabriqués sur place. Il y a aussi des « soirées guitare ». Tout le monde danse et frappe des mains. Mohamed Issa ag Oumar est là. C’est LE guitariste du groupe Tartit, fer de lance avec Tinariwen de la musique touareg sur la scène de la World Music. Il a apporté sa guitare. On branche des amplis sur les batteries des voitures. Ici s’émancipe une économie de la World Music à visée interne, au sein du camp.  

Mentao, Burkina Faso  

Nous sommes à 20 kilomètres de Ouagadougou. En octobre 2014, Marta Amico visite le camp en compagnie d’une musicienne du groupe Tartit, qui dirige l’organisation des femmes du camp. Un musicien armé de sa guitare entonne un chant de bienvenue. Des femmes se joignent à lui. M. Amico interroge : Pourquoi la musique ? Parce que c’est la vie. Ici, « la musique » n’est pas quelque chose « à part », une activité en soi : c’est l’instrument de la vie sociale, c’est le fait de pouvoir continuer à se réunir autour des célébrations d’avant qui fait toute l’importance des moments de jeu. Et c’est la raison pour laquelle on retrouve ici tellement de musiciens : ils ont fui les groupes islamistes qui interdisent la musique dans le Nord Mali. Ici, ils organisent des dj set improvisés. Et ils se connectent au monde. Dans ces moments où tout cède, la musique fabrique du lien social.  

Zaatari, Jordanie  

Construit en juillet 2012, le camp de Zaatari est situé à la frontière syrienne. 80.000 réfugiés syriens y vivent dans des conditions précaires, près du pays qu’ils ont fui. Zaatari dépend entièrement de l’aide humanitaire. Plusieurs ONG travaillent autour d’activités musicales, c’est le cas d’OXFAM International. Comment la musique est-elle appréhendée dans le règlement du camp ? Comment est- elle mobilisée par les musiciens euxmêmes ? Quel rapport chacun entretient-il à l’écoute ? Et quels sont les répertoires qui entrent dans l’espace public ? Engagée par OXFAM International, Gaétane Lefebvre a travaillé au plus près des interactions musiciennes. Elle a établi des liens avec Nicolas Puig, anthropologue spécialiste des camps de réfugiés au Liban et Richard Wolf, réalisateur de A requiem for Syrian refugees” (2014). L’université d’été permettra de visionner ce film, en présence de N. Puig et du réalisateur. 

Baigorri, France (64)  

Le 20 novembre 2015, à l’initiative de l’Office français de l’immigration et de l’intégration (OFII), une cinquantaine de migrants s’installent à Baigorri, dans les montagnes basques. Ils ont quitté le Soudan, l’Erythrée, le Tadjikistan, l’Afghanistan et tous les Kurdistan. Ils ne savent pas où ils sont, ne parlent ni français, ni anglais, ni basque, mais ils ont dit oui, et l’OFII les a conduits ici. La mairie réquisitionne le VVF, la préfecture finance, les bénévoles aident les migrants dans leurs démarches administratives. Des ateliers sont en place. Une osmose s’opère. Des ateliers de danse basque sont créés, des ateliers de musique aussi. L’un d’eux réclame un violon. Un violon est trouvé. Il joue sans vibrato, sur des échelles improbables : nous offre un makâm syrien. Pourquoi donc la musique ici ? 
Ces études de cas seront complétées par d’autres cas présentés par les étudiants qui participeront à l’Université d’été, et par les exposés de Philip Bohlman (University of Chicago) sur la musique dans les camps et de Raimund Vogels (Hildesheim) sur l’institutionnalisation des expériences menées en Niedersachsen pour valoriser le talent d’artistes réfugiés et leur procurer une formation diplomantes qui leur ouvre les portes du marché du travail artistique en Allemagne.

          From Cyborgs to Hacktivists: Postfeminist Disobedience and Virtual Communities   
by
Carolyn Guertin
2005-01-27

For many the term postfeminist might call to mind the vanilla pleasures of metrosexuality, webcams, online soaps, and blog culture, but, for me, a 40-something cyberfeminist scholar, curator and some time activist, the politically-minded feminist texts I work with are in fact dyed-in-the-wool postfeminist ones that occupy a different place on the postfeminism continuum from those more loudly-lauded, lighter confections. Usually given a bad rap by the media, postfeminism has been accused of being antifeminist, whereas it is instead what the next wave of second wave feminism has become. Its name is not a marker or movement that intends to imply that feminism is dead and gone, any more than Donna Haraway’s “postgender” and N. Katherine Hayles’ “posthuman” mean the death of those old shoes. As Ann Brooks puts it in Postfeminisms, “the concept of `post’ implies a process of ongoing transformation and change” (1). Postfeminism is that indicator that shows us the organism formerly known as feminism has grown into something far more complex than its liberal origins would lead us to expect.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, second wave feminism, which had spoken predominantly from and to a position of white middle class privilege, began to fracture to include a broader chorus of voices, classes, and races. Postfeminism or, more exactly, postfeminisms have expanded to include a multitude of situated perspectives within the context of postmodern thinking, and have swelled to embrace the new emphasis on what Michèle Barrett identified in 1992 (the year that the World Wide Web was born) as “fluidity and contingency” - features that are the trademark stock in trade of the cyber age. Barrett believed feminism’s paradigm shift to be the result of a new interest in culture that in turn gave rise to a whole new collectivity of subjectivities. It is no accident that this shift coincided with the advent of a technology that foregrounded networked communications. It was only a few years earlier, in the fledgling days of the personal computer back when the Internet was still a vehicle predominantly for hackers and technogeeks, that Haraway first articulated a politics of connectivity for women in the context of these new technologies. In her “Cyborg Manifesto” Haraway’s half-woman, half-machine revels in the confusion of body boundaries and fractures all sense of an originary unity or simplex gender through embracing the cyborg as a model: a being who revels in discursivity, multiplicity, hybridity, and perversity. As the Web has evolved, it has become something of a gene pool for creative explorations of sexualities, subjectivities and identities - and has proved to be as liberating for men as for women in that regard. Cyberfeminist scholar Sadie Plant even argues for the feminizing influence of technology in a connected age. Without a doubt, though, this new technology’s most important role has been that of facilitating communication.

 “cyberfeminism is post-feminist” (76) Cyberfeminism was born at a particular moment in time, 1992, simultaneously at three different points on the globe. In Canada, Nancy Paterson, a celebrated high tech installation artist, penned an article called “Cyberfeminism” for Stacy Horn’s Echo Gopher server. In Australia, VNS Matrix (Josephine Starrs, Julianne Pierce, Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt) coined the term to label their radical feminist acts and their blatantly viral agenda: to insert women, bodily fluids, and political consciousness into electronic spaces. That same year, British cultural theorist Sadie Plant chose the same term to describe her recipe for defining the feminizing influence of technology on western society and its inhabitants.

-Judy Wajcman

Connectivity has been called the genius of feminism by theorist Robin Morgan (53), and this genius is being realized in electronic spaces and texts in more complex ways than in any other medium to date. Connectivity is the poster child of the postfeminist universe, which is why the first cyberfeminist collective, VNS Matrix, chose the image of the matrix - the cosmic womb - as its symbol The Australian collective VNS Matrix announced its inception with a rallying cry called the “Cyberfeminist Manifesto”:
__________
We are the modern cunt
positive anti-reason
unbounded unleashed unforgiving
we see art with our cunt we make art with our cunt
we believe in jouissance madness holiness and poetry
we are the virus of the new world disorder
rupturing the symbolic from within
saboteurs of big daddy mainframe
the clitoris is a direct line to the matrix
VNS MATRIX
terminators of the moral code
mercenaries of slime
go down on the altar of abjection
sucking the visceral temple we speak in tongues
infiltrating disrupting disseminating
corrupting the discourse/we are the future cunt
(http://www.obn.org/reading_room/manifestos/html/cyberfeminist.html)
__________
Its separatist nature bears a resemblance to philosophies put forward by hackers.
. Another cyberfeminist collective, the Old Boys’ Network, defined its local chapters as “nodes” that “collide, disintegrate, regenerate, engage, disembody, reform, collapse, renew, abandon, revise, revitalize, and expand” (OBN FAQ 7). These structural and mechanical concerns are not accidental. Postfeminisms do not inhabit a network; they are the network of feminist discourse in virtual space and they are at their best when they are helping to forge communities of practice. In its incarnation most familiar to ebr ‘s readers, the electronic, hyperlinked text is both a narratological structure and the means of navigation in space and time. In the webbed space of hyperlinked fiction, the pregnant gaps between the nodes are at least as important as the textual nodes themselves. The nodes exist in conjunction with the dynamic space of the journey and cannot be discussed in isolation. So with the newest literary forms of the postfeminist universe. They cannot be separated from the communities and material praxes that they both engender and nurture on and off the Web.

In the cyberfeminist corner of the postfeminist universe, girl gamers such as Brenda Laurel and Mary Flanagan immediately spring to mind; so too do techno-performers such as Laurie Anderson and Coco Fusco, and new media artists such as Mez or Olia Lialina, but the most important and distinctive Web-native postfeminist form is, I would argue, hacktivism. The term was first coined in 1998 The rallying cry of hackers has long been “information wants to be free.” to describe an emerging hybrid form that united the best attributes of peaceful social protest - activism - and tech-savvy online civil disobedience - hackerism The term “hacktivism” has been attributed to a Toronto-based hacker who goes by the handle of Oxblood Ruffin.. It is a solution-oriented form of political action that inserts bodies and media-based dissent into real time material concerns. It should not be confused with its adolescent and illegal cousins, cractivism - code cracking, vandalism, data blockades (DDos) and the loss of digital data - or cyberterrorism - acts and agents of wanton destruction including worms and viruses. One of its trademark features is that the Web cannot contain hacktivism’s flows, allowing it to spill out into the world in the form of political protest at WTO and G8 events, for example, and in books, pamphlets, net.art, and performance art.

Hacktivism as a praxis was born in December 1997 when Critical Art Ensemble Critical Art Ensemble has been very much in the news lately since one of its members, Steve Kurtz, a professor in the Department of Art at SUNY Buffalo, was arrested on 12 May 2004 and charged with bioterrorism under the American Anti-Terrorism Act. These trumped up and widely protested charges have resulted in the FBI appropriating CAE’s materials and equipment used for testing for the presence of genetically- modified DNA - the tools CAE uses in creating their political art. member and software engineer Carmin Karasic was so appalled by the events of the Acteal Massacre - 45 Zapatistas were murdered at the hands of the Mexican government - that she set out to create a Web interface that would perform political protest as an aesthetic act. Three other Critical Art Ensemble members joined her in forming a new collective they named the Electronic Disturbance Theatre. (The group’s name is drawn from the concept of civil disobedience first proposed by Henry David Thoreau.) Their electronic civil disobedience engine is named FloodNet; funded by RTMark and launched in September 1998, it is Karasic’s brainchild in her war against injustice. Filling the browser page with the names of the dead, this activism tool “would access the page for Mexico’s President Zedillo seeking bogus addresses, so the browser would return messages like “human_rights not found on this server” (Cassell). Unlike the attacks launched by cracktivists, no damage is done by this software agent. When the Electronic Disturbance Theatre alerts its “online activists to `commence flooding!’” they visit EDT’s website and click on FloodNet’s icon (Harmon). The software then directs their browser to the target, and cues the same page to load over and over again.

As a postfeminist work, it is no accident that FloodNet must function as a community-based performance:

FloodNet’s action only drew its validity from the number of people showing support. “It was only actualized through thousands and thousands of participants,” she remembers. “It was meaningless without the masses.” Popular support transforms a random act of vandalism into a show of presence, Karasic argues. “This is an important difference between the single hacker/hacktivist who takes down a server with a single script” (qtd. in Cassell).

Similar to the disruptive aestheticization of codework by the Dutch trio jodi.org, Karasic sees her collectivity interface as something more closely akin to “conceptual art” than to cyberterrorism (Harmon). No one and no data are harmed in these `attacks,’ but websites are effectively shut down while the protest is being transmitted.

Advancing human rights through the electronic media is also the purview of another collective, a cyberfeminist one called subRosa. It is currently comprised of Laleh Mehran, Hyla Willis, Steffi Domike, Lucia Sommer, and Faith Wilding. It was also formed in the fall of 1998 - around the same time that Karasic was vowing to respond to Mexican excesses with FloodNet. Donna Haraway was the first to identify science as one of the most insidious cultural forms women needed to address to regain control of their bodies; subRosa follows in that tradition. subRosa uses its art to critique “the relationships between digital technologies, biotechnologies and women’s bodies/lives/work” (Griffis). The goal of these hacktivists, akin to the Electronic Disturbance Theatre’s, is the creation of communities, what they call “female affiliations that respect difference and create productive projects in solidarity with others who are working on similar ones” (Griffis).

Embracing bell hooks’ definition of feminism as that which seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination (qtd in Griffis), subRosa undertakes projects of activism and public education on topics as wide-ranging as eugenics, Frankenfoods, stem cell and cloning research, and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Seeing their purpose as a pedagogical one, they launch inclusive electronic campaigns, publish pamphlets and books, and travel out into (particularly third world) communities to perform their topical art. These are what they call resistant projects, tactical cyberfeminist ones, and situational information theatre: “As cyberfeminists and artists we are using the framework of participatory performance as an information theatre of pedagogical art that models various tactics for intervening and commenting on the seductive representations of the flesh machine” (subRosa). One of the keys to their successful distribution of information is their willingness to mix media and cross boundaries, producing their art and materials in a plethora of formats contextually situated for their audiences. Like FloodNet’s participatory form, subRosa’s mode of information distribution is reproducible, for it argues “[i]n the digital age, resistant cultural producers can embrace recombinance for subversive ends” (subRosa).

All of this may seem somewhat removed from the electronic book and literary traditions, but when postfeminisms meet the new media they encourage these kinds of pleasures in the confusion of boundaries between bodies, texts, technologies, politics, and cultures. In a hyperlinked age when the only true path through a text is a personal journey, the many roads of postfeminism show that comminglings of radical politics and material concerns are alive and well in both the virtual and real worlds. How effective these hacktivist actions are is difficult to measure, but they are remarkable as tools for global mobilization and peaceful protest. It is clear that they are very effective at allowing women’s voices to be heard.

(Partial Translation)
The Italian team made a lonely return after losing in the group stages of the World Cup. The chartered jets arrived in Milan and Rome, but no supporters turned up at either of the airports.

Some people speculated that they would have a rough reception upon their arrival, but it seems that many fans are more appalled than angry. The national team's poster was vandalized at the airport in Rome.

The Japanese national team comes home with broken spirits... but is greeted by huge cheers!?

Yoshito Okubo (32): "I expected harsh criticisms..."

The national team was treated harshly in 1998 after coming home from their first ever World Cup. A fan threw a bottle of water at goalless forward Shoji Jo at the time. There was added security at the airport this year, and even prevented a fan from putting up a banner that read "Nothing's changed from the World Cup in France".

1,000 supporters turned up at Narita airport to welcome the team as they made their way into the arrivals lobby. Everyone looked down as they buckled up for a harsh reception but got a surprisingly warm reception in return.

There were a few who lashed at them but were still drowned out by the cheers. Manager Alberto Zaccheroni raised his hand up in response to this. This was the same thing that happened at the hotel. The fallen athletes were treated like idols. Captain Hasebe once stated that "Football is the world's culture. It has been established as a way of life and a major part of the culture in the powerful nations, and the team will suffer from intense criticisms once they lose. I want our people and the media to be a bit more strict on us", but what waited for them was entirely different.

For all those people who think that Trump's tweets are brilliant at reaching the public and throwing his opponents off balance or whatever other bit of analysis used to show that somehow he's playing three-dimensional chess while the rest of the world can't even set up the checker board, is this really a set of tweets that makes you proud that he's your president?




These morning tweets follow other tweets touting ones supporting policy actions by his administration and the GOP. Does he think anyone will pay attention to any of that when he's tweeting comments on a morning show's appearance and the show's ratings? It's as if he's taken a master a class on self-sabotage.

Isn't he supposed to be in the middle of trying to help a GOP repeal of Obamacare?

Remember when conservatives ridiculed Obama interview talking to GloZell, the woman who is mainly known for eating cereal while sitting in a bathub of milk or going on Between Two Ferns? Well, was any of that less respectful of the office of the presidency than such tweets? I have come to regard Trump's tweets as a verbal expression of his id. That is the level he operates at and we get a glimpse at what impulses control him through Twitter. All his advisers urging him to focus on policy and presenting an image of gravitas are the ego trying to mediate between those impulses and reality. They might win out for hours, even days sometimes, but the id is there ready to take over.

There used to be a time when Republicans claimed that character mattered in the presidency. Today...not so much.

Canada thinks it can control the Internet.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled against Google on Wednesday in a closely-watched intellectual property case over whether judges can apply their own country's laws to all of the Internet.

In a 7-2 decision, the court agreed a British Columbia judge had the power to issue an injunction forcing Google to scrub search results about pirated products not just in Canada, but everywhere else in the world too.

Those siding with Google, including civil liberties groups, had warned that allowing the injunction would harm free speech, setting a precedent to let any judge anywhere order a global ban on what appears on search engines. The Canadian Supreme Court, however, downplayed this objection and called Google's fears "theoretical."
Charles C. W. Cooke comments,
That amusing episode of The I.T. Crowd notwithstanding, “the Internet” is not a single black box somewhere in London, but a massively decentralized network of networks that, while conforming to a few agreed-upon technical specifications, gives new meaning to the word “diffuse.” Or, put another way, “the Internet” is a patchwork quilt of cables, satellites, switches, service providers, cell phones, desktops, laptops, web-servers, and protocols that, taken together, forms the sprawling web to which we are all so accustomed. The beauty of this arrangement is that anybody can participate. Want to be the next Facebook? To start with, at least, all you’ll need is a domain name, an internet connection, and a computer, and . . . that’s it. Though there are certain breakpoints (IP allocation, root DNS, etc.), there is no central permission structure that newcomers have to navigate. It’s open. It’s wild. It’s wonderful.

Now, this is not to say that censorship is impossible. It’s not. If a government wishes to block access to a particular site within the physical borders over which it has jurisdiction, it can do so. Likewise, websites and services that contradict local law can be legally removed, and, if it so wishes, a government can demand that any organization operating on a network within its borders must conform to its rules. What it can’t do, however, is export those judgments abroad.

Suppose that I, a permanent resident of the United States, were to host a website that contained speech that was banned in, say, Germany. Certainly, the German authorities could prevent Germans from seeing my site. And, if anyone chose to mirror my site on server inside Germany, they could shut that person down quite quickly. But they couldn’t have me shut down in America, and they couldn’t prevent people in other countries from accessing my site over the web. My server would be in America, connected to a network in America, subject to the law in America, and guaranteed the protections to which Americans are entitled. The German government, annoyed as it might be, would have to accept that....

And that, ultimately, is why the Canadian Court’s decision is so hilarious. I understand why people are worried about the idea — if taken seriously, it would give any less-free-than-America country an effective veto over the First Amendment. But they shouldn’t fret too much: The judges can say what they like, but their edict is simply unenforceable. If it wishes to do so, the government of Canada can prevail upon Google to abide by its rules within Canada. In addition, it can regulate the web in Canada to prevent access to sites it dislike. But it can’t force Google in America or France or Australia or Singapore to do a single goddamned thing. And thank goodness for that, eh?
I hope that he is correct, but we've seen the EU slapping a $2.7 billion fine on Google because the EU thinks it violates antitrust for Google to promote Google Shopping sites over other shopping sites. I'm not sure what there is about a FREE service like Google that the Europeans don't understand. Are European citizens actually hurt by Google giving them a free shopping search engine and then putting their items at the top? Would they prefer to pay for their search engines? Please, just keep your hands off Google. As more countries try and figure out ways to make money off of fining Google, they should consider the unintended consequences.
“The EU has effectively decided that some companies have become too big to innovate,” Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, said in a statement following the Google Shopping decision. “The EU’s actions have created a cloud of uncertainty that will make large tech companies overly cautious about making changes to the user experience and service offerings that would benefit consumers.”

Jonathan Tobin applies Occam's Razor
to explain why Obama didn't do more about Russia's attempts to interfere in our election last year.
But the real problem here is not so much Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
Despite the efforts by Democrats to blame Russia for Hillary Clinton's loss and their frustration that Obama didn't do more about it, there really is no evidence that the WikiLeaks revelations from John Podesta's emails had any effect on the course of the election.
But there’s a simpler, even more plausible explanation for Obama’s inaction: The president saw that the hacking was having almost no impact on the course of the campaign and thus wasn’t going to mess with the results. Far from the crime of the century, it was, at worst, a minor annoyance to Clinton that Obama obviously felt didn’t warrant a major dustup with Putin.

It’s true that Russia’s actions were outrageous and deserved a strong US response, both then and now. It can also be argued that the public had a right to know about it. But it was only after Clinton lost and she and her supporters began searching for excuses that Russia’s actions were considered an important factor in the outcome.

While Putin was way out of line, the impact of the WikiLeaks document dumps on Clinton’s candidacy was marginal at best.

The contents of the Democratic National Committee e-mails were embarrassing to Podesta and then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who wound up losing her job after proof of DNC collusion with Clinton against Bernie Sanders was produced. But there was almost nothing in those documents that related directly to Clinton, let alone being enough to influence voters.

Every WikiLeaks story was also almost immediately overshadowed by other, more damaging gaffes or revelations about Trump, such as his attack on a Gold Star family or the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Nothing the Russians did matched the damage done by either of those Trump disasters.
Instead of looking for some external events or action, just admit that Hillary was a lousy candidate. That should actually be comforting to the Democrats. With such a compromised candidate whom so many Americans just never liked, they still won the popular vote and came really close to winning the states that put Trump over the top. If they can pick a better candidate in 2020, and can make an appeal for the voters they lost in the Rust Belt, chances are pretty strong that they'll win that year. They should be more concerned about forging a message that doesn't repel independents and those voters they lost in 2016. That's their real challenge and focusing all the time on Russia, Russia, Russia won't help them achieve that goal.


Good to know.
Tell your friendly environmentalist activist. But they're not really interested.
The benefits of fracking far outweigh its costs not only economically, but environmentally, a Stanford University geophysicist said Friday.

After teaching geophysics at Stanford for 30 years Mark Zoback took the helm of Stanford's new Natural Gas Initiative three years ago, he said, because of gas's environmental benefits.

"We did it because there were so many important and obvious environmental benefits to the utilization of natural gas," Zoback said. "So it’s somewhat ironic to be asked to argue for the notion that these benefits outweigh the environmental costs, when it’s the environmental benefits that got me into this business in the first place."

Zoback's remarks opened the annual debate at Stanford's Silicon Valley Energy Summit, and were swiftly challenged by representatives of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Counci
Zoback argued that natural gas can replace coal and "dirty diesel" at significant scale throughout the world, supporting economic growth while slashing carbon emissions. (When burned, natural gas emits about half the CO2 that coal does).

The Senate has some really dumb rules. And the minority party can use them to slow everything down to a standstill. Chuck Schumer is taking advantage of every tool that the rules provide.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day. Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation....

Grassley had sent a joint letter with subcommittee judiciary chairman Lindsey Graham to the FBI Tuesday requesting all documents related to the FBI FISA surveillance requests on the Russia investigation.

“Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress. It’s disturbing and reckless for the Minority Leader to block the briefing. We’ve seen too many recent reminders of how unsafe the world is today. This is no time to play politics with our national security,” he said.
If they could use the nuclear option to get rid of a much more prominent rule concerning filibusters of Supreme Court nominees, why not use it to get rid of this stupid rule. If it's a "rarely-used tactic," no one except the angry members of the minority party will miss it.

I had so much fun last night. I'm visiting my daughters in D.C. and we went to the Nats-Cubs game. I haven't seen a live baseball game in about 50 years since I was a kid and we'd go to the Cubs games. So I scheduled my trip to catch the game. After falling behind in the seventh inning, I thought it was pretty hopeless for the Cubs based on the way they've been playing this year. But they rallied in the ninth inning to go ahead on a triple by Jon Jay. It was so exciting and I could celebrate with all the other Cubs fans in the stadium including a cute little girl, about 10 years old, sitting with her family of Cubs fans in front of me who told her parents that John Jay had written five of the Federalist Papers. Exactly right and the Cubs' Jon Jay was a hero tonight. Go Federalists!


What a blast! And then as walked out of the stadium and came back on the Metro and hear all the Nationals fans complaining about the Nationals' bullpen. Eh, they're still doing well. I'm just hoping that the Cubs are recovering their mojo. At least their closer, Wade Davis, another historically relevant name on the Cubs roster

L'économie chinoise


Collectif

Ralentissement chinois : vers une crise ou un rééquilibrage ?
Jean-Raphaël Chaponnière
Ce printemps 2017, on a pu lire à plusieurs reprises des commentaires assez optimistes sur le regain d’activité en Chine, où la croissance économique annuelle flirte de nouveau avec les 7 %. Pour autant, les trois dernières années ont plutôt été celles du ralentissement de l’économie chinoise qui, après avoir bien résisté à la crise mondiale de la fin des années 2000, a marqué le pas. Quelles sont réellement les perspectives d’évolution de l’économie chinoise à moyen et long termes ?
Au-delà des annonces conjoncturelles, Jean-Raphaël Chaponnière propose ici un regard rétrospectif sur le retour de la Chine dans l’économie mondiale, son adaptation à l’économie de marché, les moteurs de sa croissance (main-d’œuvre, consommation, investissement) et les limites auxquelles ces moteurs sont aujourd’hui confrontés. Il montre comment la Chine a fait face à la crise, répondant au ralentissement de son activité par un certain nombre de rééquilibrages (vers son marché intérieur, notamment) et une transformation de sa structure de production. Jean-Raphaël Chaponnière présente enfin, en s’appuyant sur diverses analyses disponibles et un certain nombre de constats ou faits récemment observés, les perspectives d’évolution possible de l’économie chinoise : comment les différents moteurs de son activité économique peuvent-ils se comporter ? Connaîtra-t-elle une crise financière et quelles pourraient en être les conséquences ? Deviendra-t-elle la première puissance mondiale et selon quel modèle ?
Pour moderniser l’action publique. Les leviers du changement social
Marjorie Jouen
Depuis quelques années, l’action publique est amenée à s’adapter à un certain nombre d’évolutions dans les usages et les demandes des bénéficiaires de ses services. S’appuyant sur de nouvelles méthodes et innovations sociales, ce mouvement de modernisation semble plutôt bien engagé en France. En revanche, lorsqu’il s’agit de transformer l’action publique parce que certaines pratiques ou certains services ne répondent plus à l’intérêt général ou sont devenus néfastes pour la collectivité, l’État semble éprouver plus de difficulté à s’adapter, souligne ici Marjorie Jouen. Pourtant, l’analyse des transformations sociales et des moteurs à l’origine de ces transformations offre de nouvelles opportunités aux acteurs publics en vue de moderniser leur action. Après avoir présenté les différentes motivations et les leviers du changement social, Marjorie Jouen montre comment ces outils pourraient être transposés au service de la modernisation de l’action publique, afin d’en améliorer l’efficacité et de développer les instruments permettant de répondre concrètement aux objectifs visés.
Les comportements, levier de la transition écologique ? Comprendre et influencer les comportements individuels et les dynamiques collectives
Solange Martin et Albane Gaspard
La mise en œuvre de la transition écologique — qui consiste principalement à réduire fortement les consommations d’énergie et de matières premières dans nos sociétés — nécessite, au-delà des politiques en énonçant les grands axes, de substantiels changements à l’échelle collective, mais aussi, bien évidemment, à l’échelle individuelle. Or, si le principe de s’engager sur la voie de la transition fait en général consensus, lorsqu’il s’agit de faire évoluer nos usages et pratiques, les choses se compliquent. Peut-on — et comment — agir sur les comportements individuels et sur les dynamiques collectives, en particulier dans cette optique de transition écologique ?
Solange Martin et Albane Gaspard se sont penchées sur cette question pour le compte de l’ADEME et nous livrent ici le fruit de leur travail. Elles soulignent l’apport des sciences sociales et humaines pour comprendre les comportements à l’échelle individuelle et dans leur dimension collective, et présentent différentes voies d’actions possibles pour les infléchir. Mais compte tenu des intrications entre les différentes échelles, il est essentiel, pour agir efficacement sur les comportements, de combiner les approches, les outils et les acteurs, et de bien analyser et comprendre les pratiques sociales avant la mise en œuvre de projets ou mesures politiques.
Technique et société : l’irrésistible évolution
Thierry Gaudin
Le mois de mai 2017 a été marqué par une cyberattaque d’ampleur internationale qui a touché à la fois des entreprises, des organisations publiques, etc., et montré la grande vulnérabilité de nos contemporains au système technique actuel. Le rapport de l’homme à la technique est un élément structurant de notre civilisation, et ce depuis des siècles sinon des millénaires. Néanmoins, les progrès fulgurants auxquels nous assistons depuis le milieu du XXe siècle en matière scientifique et technique, ainsi que l’élargissement de leur champ d’action aux communications, aux relations humaines, voire au corps humain lui-même, suscitent de plus en plus de questionnements. D’où l’intérêt de l’analyse ici proposée par Thierry Gaudin sur les relations technique / société dans une optique de long terme : que nous dit le passé de ces relations et de la façon dont s’élabore et se diffuse la culture technique ? Quels ont été et quels sont aujourd’hui les moteurs du progrès technique, et que révèlent-ils de nos organisations humaines ? Comment envisager l’évolution à venir du progrès technique, qui repose désormais plus sur les multinationales de l’information que sur les États, et dont le ressort principal consiste en la manipulation des esprits ? Dans un tel contexte, sommes-nous irrémédiablement condamnés à suivre l’évolution du système technique, ou reste-t-il des voies de sortie « par le haut », pour la société, de ce système qui bouscule les échanges économiques et les relations humaines ?
Les compétences de l’Union européenne. Perceptions et réalités
Gabriel Arnoux
Les récentes élections présidentielles en France ont confirmé l’incompréhension et le rejet de nombre de citoyens vis-à-vis des politiques menées depuis plusieurs décennies, mais aussi des dirigeants en charge de ces politiques. Elles ont aussi rappelé la méfiance sinon le rejet de ces mêmes citoyens à l’égard de l’Union européenne, souvent prompte à être élevée en bouc émissaire des problèmes nationaux. Pourtant, comme le montre cet article de Gabriel Arnoux, ce rejet de l’Europe repose sur une méconnaissance — très souvent entretenue par les gouvernements nationaux — des compétences effectives de l’Union européenne.
En effet, il existe une réelle différence entre la perception qu’ont bon nombre de citoyens européens du rôle de l’Union dans l’orientation et la détermination des politiques nationales, et la réalité de ce rôle. Les compétences exclusives de l’Union européenne sont en fait assez limitées (respect de la concurrence, monnaie, politique douanière et commerciale, principalement) et dans la plupart des domaines, l’Union n’intervient qu’en appui aux États ou en collaboration avec eux. Cette clarification des compétences réelles de l’Union européenne est primordiale car la Commission vient d’engager une réflexion sur l’avenir de l’Europe, sur la base de cinq scénarios visant à déterminer comment pourraient évoluer l’Union et les compétences qui sont les siennes. Mais également parce que le flou entretenu autour des compétences et responsabilités effectives des institutions européennes et nationales est révélateur d’un malaise plus général quant à la manière dont sont présentées et évaluées les politiques publiques, qui contribue aussi pour une grande part à la désaffection des citoyens à l’égard du politique.
Le Royaume-(dés)Uni et ses frontières
Jean-François Drevet
Dans la foulée du référendum britannique de juin 2016 ayant donné une majorité de voix en faveur du Brexit, l’article 50 du traité sur l’Union européenne (UE) a été déclenché le 29 mars 2017 en vue d’organiser le départ du Royaume-Uni de l’UE. Londres et les 27 autres pays membres de l’Union disposent de deux ans pour préparer la sortie effective du Royaume-Uni. Au-delà de ses conséquences économiques et sociales, régulièrement évoquées et commentées, le Brexit pourrait aussi déboucher sur un retour de la conflictualité en Europe, comme le souligne cette tribune de Jean-François Drevet. Car si l’un des paris les mieux tenus par l’UE depuis sa création est sans conteste la préservation de la paix sur le continent européen, il ne concerne pas seulement les relations entre les États membres fondateurs (à commencer par la France, l’Italie et l’Allemagne), mais également le règlement de plusieurs différends territoriaux impliquant le Royaume-Uni dans sa structure plurinationale et dans ses relations avec d’autres États européens. La mise en œuvre du Brexit pourrait réveiller un certain nombre de ces conflits que l’UE avait permis d’apaiser, en particulier à Chypre, Gibraltar ou en Irlande du Nord. C’est ce que montre cette tribune, et c’est aussi ce que les négociateurs britanniques et européens doivent garder à l’esprit lors de l’établissement des modalités de sortie du Royaume-Uni.

          Música: El CUARTETO CEDRON   

El CUARTETO CEDRON para el público infantil



 

 El 21 de julio a las 18, en Teatro El Popular, el Cuarteto CEDRON presentará su disco PARA NUESTROS HIJOS, en un concierto con entorno de kermés a cargo del grupo La Musaranga. Se trata de un CD de recopilación que trae once canciones grabadas en distintas épocas y que de algún modo aluden al mundo de la infancia.


Desde La casa del asiento de tortuga, hermosísimo poema maya dedicado al nacimiento, a los que  Miguel Angel Bustos escribió para su hijo o el que Javier Villafañe imaginó para un niño negro, pasando por la evocación que hace Tuñón de la algarabía infantil alrededor de La fogata de San Juan. Mares, de Juan Gelman, y Mojarrita Porá, de Alejandro Cantarella son pequeños relatos como fábulas, y se incluye también una versión recitada de Los Ladones, de Tuñón, grabada por Román Cedrón, a sus tres años, entre otras.

La casa del asiento de tortuga integra una colección de canciones escritas por Juan Tata Cedrón a principio de los años 70 sobre textos anónimos mayas traducidos por Miguel Angel Asturias. De aquellas únicamente se grabaron dos y esta sólo fue publicada en aquel momento y nunca más  reeditada en Argentina. El texto es una invocación a quien está por nacer.

La Compañía Nacional de Autómatas la Musaranga sumará sus máquinas, marionetas y robots fabricados con desechos industriales, con personajes que bailan, cantan, hacen malabarismo, ladran y bastante mas.

Lo que nos importa


No recuerdo la fecha exacta pero fue a principios de los años 2000. A Tata lo habían invitado a tocar a la Plaza de los Periodistas. Todavía no estaba radicado en Argentina pero tenía el proyecto de volver. Había amigos en esa plaza (además de los periodistas homenajeados): Obdulio Onofrio, Juan Molina y Vedia, Silvia… Tata empezó a cantar y yo busqué un lugar para escuchar. Me instalé detrás de una mujer que estaba con su hijito. El nene tendría unos cuatro años. Los recuerdo porque a la segunda o tercera canción, el nene empezó a gritar: “¡Tata! ¡Tata! ¡Cantá Los Ladrones!” Me impresionó. Pensé: qué país más bonito éste… un país donde los niños le hablan a Tata como si fuera un amigo y además… ¡le piden Los Ladrones!

El Cuarteto Cedrón tiene más de una historia con niños. La más famosa es la de Román. El hijo mayor de Tata que a los tres años recitó completito el poema “Los Ladrones”. Recitado que Tata logró grabar (y que se reproduce también en este disco).

Más allá de lo estrictamente familiar: algunos de los jóvenes que hoy trabajan con el Cuarteto lo escucharon de chicos porque ésa era también la música que escuchaban sus padres. Otros se acercaron de más grandes. Esto sucedió en Argentina, pero además en otros lugares. En plena dictadura (en Chile), en los años 80, mi padre cruzó la cordillera con algunos compañeros y encontró refugio en Argentina antes de reunirse con la familia en Francia. Durante su estadía en Buenos Aires quiso hacernos un regalo. El regalo fue el “Tradicional” del Cuarteto Cedrón. Un casete, quizás copiado. Eso no lo recuerdo, pero sé que gracias a mi padre escucho al Cuarteto desde los diez años.

Otra historia. En este caso francesa. Sería el año 2002, 2003. Sucedió que antes de iniciarse un concierto del Cuarteto, en una ciudad de las afueras de París, una pareja le hizo llegar una nota a los músicos. Una nota escrita en francés que, traducida, dice así:

Señores: unas palabritas para pedirles si no podrían tocar y cantar “Ven acá” esta noche. Estamos en la sala con nuestra hija Karen que ahora tiene veinte años y que fue acunada durante toda su infancia –así como sus hermanas– por esa canción que yo le cantaba… Muchas gracias. “Ven acá” es “La casa del asiento de tortuga” (anónimo azteca recopilado por Miguel Ángel Asturias). Canción grabada a principios de los 70 con la que se abre este disco.

Más cerca de nosotros: en Villa del Parque vive una nena llamada Micaela. A los 9 años escuchaba en bucle la versión de “Mano Blanca” que grabó el Cuarteto Cedrón y la “Polka de la tarjeta de cartón”. De manera casual, la nena escuchó al Tata y luego buscó por las suyas…

Para que este tipo de cosas no fuera tan “casual”, años atrás, Tata junto a Jaime Torres imaginaron un proyecto para ir a las escuelas a presentar su música. Con la idea de que los chicos pudieran también formarse al contacto de lo que tienen para ofrecer. Un sonido. Una poesía. Una forma de tocar (y de amar a los demás, yo diría). Lamentablemente, el proyecto no pudo concretarse. La idea de hacer esta antología se nutre de éstas y otras experiencias. En este disco se han reunido grabaciones que por su ternura, por su belleza (y sin necesidad de pedirle al Tata que cante –horror– “para chicos”) pueden acompañar las infancias de nuestros hijos y también, a estas alturas, las de los nietos.

Ojo: lo que nos importa (a los que tenemos la voluntad de sacar este disco) es que ese sonido tan particular que componen la manera de cantar del Tata y el aporte de cada intérprete pueda ser escuchado por chicos. De ninguna manera nos interesa que se hagan versiones que adopten el tono meloso, modulado y “ñañañá” que a veces se usa con los niños (cf. Mafalda y los dichos de Guille sobre la manera en que ciertos adultos le hablan a los chicos; ver también Les Luthiers, Conjunto musical Los Honguitos, “Canción para moverse”).

Una última historia. Hace cosa de un año, me reuní por primera vez con Ana Longoni (investigadora, escritora) en el marco de unos trabajos que estaba haciendo. Llegamos puntual a la cita. Intercambiamos libros. Yo necesitaba leer el que ella acababa de publicar y le llevaba de regalo el libro sobre el Cuarteto Cedrón (Tango y Quimera). Vio la tapa, tomó el libro en sus manos, y me empezó a contar una serie de cosas. Una, sobre todo, me llamó la atención. Años atrás, me dijo, había estado en una plaza escuchando al Tata Cedrón con su hijito. Tendría unos cuatro años entonces. “Y a los gritos, mi hijo le pidió al Tata que cantara Los Ladrones…”

¿Cómo no pensar que estamos hechos también de lo que escuchamos? ¿Cómo no pensar que la música y la poesía pueden ser lo que nos une? Una manera de juntarnos. De reconocernos. De reencontrarnos. Y una forma de transmitir, a quienes más queremos, algo de lo que nos importa.

          Vintage Scrap Lone Star   

It all started in 2013, when Quiltdiva Julie sent me a box of crazy pieced vintage blocks.



There were 24 in all, and they came from a quilt top she'd bought on Ebay.
The seller said it came from Ohio.



I had saved this photo on my computer screen for some years before that.  
I don't remember the source, but it became my inspiration.



I sewed the blocks together and cut out the diamond shapes for the star.  
There were just enough leftover for the border.  



Then I bought some embroidery floss.



I learned a few stitches, and embroidered all the seams.



Eventually, it was ready for a background.
I picked this spring green solid, because it was the only thing that seemed to work.
I wasn't excited about the color, but thought I'd get over it.
Well, I didn't.  I just didn't like all that green!



I decided to remove it and find another background.
Several hours of stitch-picking later, I was ready for auditions.
I tried practically everything I had on the shelf.  
Here are just a few.


Too light


Too dark


Too brown


Too bright


Too busy


Too gray

A few dear friends suffered with me and my auditions for WEEKS!


Then I went to the Houston Quilt Festival and found what I was looking for!
It's one of the new woven plaids from Kaffe Fassett.
The top is about 87" square, plenty big for a queen size bed.
I finished it last week.




THEN, just yesterday, I went to the Farmer's Market, like I do every Sunday.
The woman farmer I always buy from gave me this!



She said her great-grandmother had made it from old family clothes.
What a treasure!  I tried to talk her out of giving it away.
But she said she had no room for it.  
So I gladly brought it home.  



While Julie's was sewn in blocks and not yet embroidered,
this one was sewn all on one sheet with embroidery.

Now I have TWO vintage scrap tops to quilt and to love!

News just in:  

Bill Volckening found where the original inspiration quilt came from.
The quilt was shown in the European Patchwork show in France in 2012.  

Katell Renon's quilt group in France was also inspired by the original.
They made a beauty!

          Exciting and not-so exciting news.   

Wow!
There are two beautiful articles about my quilts in Les Nouvelles,
Patchwork et Creation Textile, the magazine of France Patchwork.  




My dear friend, Katell Renon, writes for the magazine.  



Even though I can't read French, I know she's written lovely articles, 
as she always does!
You can see more of her interesting and insightful articles about quilting here:






It's a gorgeous publication, mostly produced by and for the members of
France Patchwork.  
I'm honored and thrilled!



For not-so exciting news, here's my design wall today.  
I've been making these blocks from shirts that belong to my husband and me.  
No rulers, no measuring. The blocks fall into their own rows as they fit.



I've also started a new hand-quilting project.  
I'm experimenting with perle 12 thread, hoping it will be easier on my hands.
This photo shows both perle 8 and 12.  
It's hard to tell the difference in the look.  The 12 is definitely easier to pull through.



I've also dusted off my travel project for a trip to the national parks in Utah.  
We'll see how much I get done while gawking at the natural wonders there. 

Happy Spring!  




          Fini!   
"The French Connection" is quilted!



It's a good thing I finished this quilt a few weeks ago.  
I've been snuggling in it ever since, recovering from a virus 
and then a sprained ankle.



Remembering the joys of going to France last year 
and meeting wonderful quilting friends.



Feeling thankful for the many friends I've met through
being a quilt maker and blogger.



Pondering the changing world around us,
with all its joys and sorrows.



Contemplating the life lesson that always seems to hit me over the head--
DO LESS, REST MORE.

Paix et la Joie en 2016!
Peace and Joy in 2016!





          The French Connection   
Warning:  This is a sad post.

The Paris attacks on November 13 struck me utterly speechless.  
Like most of us, I mourned for the French people and for all of us 
who can no longer take our safety for granted.  

"The French Connection" 58" x 70"
I found myself compelled to make a quilt that reflects this sadness. 
I could not help but drop everything and make this over the last two weeks.



I used simple hour glass blocks.  I knew I wanted to make it quickly.
The somber colors would communicate my feelings.



I started with my small collection of French fabrics.     
The top right block uses fabrics given to me by Willemke and Katell 
when I visited France last summer.



The other fabrics are from my stash, including shirt stripes.  
The blue is another treasure from Willemke. 



The border is an old French curtain.  

Friday was France's official day of mourning.
Katell told me they named all 130 victims on the radio.
Most were in their 20's and 30's, from 26 nationalities, leaving 50 orphans.
I finished the top on Saturday.  

I will quilt it soon and use it all winter,
sending wishes of comfort and healing to the victims, their families, all Parisians, 
the people of France and all of us as we try to make sense of this changing world.  
I know you all are joining me in these wishes.

Peace.

          Danilo Petrucci renueva un año más con el Octo Pramac Racing   

Danilo Petrucci Motogp Gp Alemania 2017001

Danilo Petrucci está que se sale. Tras sus éxitos logrados en los últimas carreras el italiano ha anunciado su renovación para 2018 en el Octo Pramac Racing. Ha sido hoy durante la sesión clasificatoria de MotoGP del Gran Premio de Alemania, donde además Danilo ha conseguido la segunda posición, cuando se ha hecho oficial el comunicado.

La próxima temporada el sueldo de Petrucci caerá a cargo de Ducati lo su pone un tratamiento favorable y por lo tanto muy altas las posibilidades de que pilote una Ducati GP18, la misma moto sobre las que irán los pilotos oficiales Andrea Dovizioso y Jorge Lorenzo.

Petrucci podrá tener una Ducati GP18

Danilo Petrucci Motogp Gp Alemania 2017002

"Estoy muy contento de quedarme con el Octo Pramac Racing, estoy contento de permanecer en el equipo que considero mi casa. Me gustaría dar las gracias a Paolo Campinoti que me acogió en la familia Pramac y Francesco Guidotti quien creyó en mí", decía Petrucci sobre su nuevo contrato.

El piloto de Terni llegó al equipo italiano en el año 2015 y desde entonces ha subido en tres ocasiones al podio, dos de ellas durante esta temporada con una tercera posición en Mugello y una segunda en Assen. Petrux está demostrando este año una evolución progresiva que le está permitiendo luchar en carrera junto a los pilotos oficiales de Yamaha, Honda o Ducati.

Aún se desconoce quién será su compañero de box pero todo apunta a que no será el inglés Scott Redding el que siga ocupando el asiento. El australiano Jack Miller tiene muchas opciones de dejar la Honda del Estrella Galicia para pasarse a la Ducati y convertirse en compañero de equipo de Danilo.

          Clasificación pasada por agua en Alemania en la que Franco Morbidelli se hace con su quinta pole del año   

Moto2 Gp Alemania 2017002

Clasificación de Moto2 pasada por agua en el Gran Premio de Alemania. Franco Morbidelli ha conseguido su quinta pole de la temporada tras arrebatársela a su compañero de equipo en el último segundo. Con un tiempo de 1'32.159, el italiano defenderá mañana su liderato desde la primera posición.

Álex Márquez ha tenido que conformarse con la segunda posición tras liderar durante la última parte de la sesión. El piloto local Sandro Cortese ha sido el encargado de completar la primera línea. El alemán consigue bajo la mirada de su público entrar por primera vez esta temporada en el corralillo cerrado de los sábados. El piloto debutante y sustituto del lesionado Xavi Vierge, Héctor Garzo ha terminado quinto.

La lluvia, protagonista y determinante en moto2

Moto2 Gp Alemania 2017003

La bandera de agua tardó poco en salir en la clasificación de Moto2. Los pilotos salieron a pista en busca de acumular kilómetros y hacerse con el mejor tiempo posible, pero a los pocos minutos del inicio, una tormenta de verano descargaba encima del circuito provocado la retirada de los pilotos y dejando la pista prácticamente desértica.

Pocos se atrevieron a rodar bajo la lluvia y no fue hasta los últimos 20 minutos cuando la actividad volvió a Sachsenring. Miguel Oliveira y su KTM fueron los encargados de marcar el tiempo de referencia hasta que el resto de compañeros se animaran a la lucha.

Moto2 Gp Alemania 2017004

Sandro Cortese, Franco Morbidelli, Thomas Luthi o Álex Márquez fueron algunos de los que pelearon por la primera posición en los últimos cinco minutos. Finalmente, fue una pelea interna dentro del box de Estrella Galiciab con Morbidelli y Márquez arrebatándose los tiempos en las últimas vueltas.

El desenlace se desencadenó a favor de Franco Morbidelli que se hacía con su quinta pole de la temporada tras batirle el tiempo a su compañero de equipo. Morbidelli defenderá mañana el liderato desde la primera posición seguido de Álex Márquez y el piloto local Sandro Cortese. El alemán consigue así entrar por primera vez esta temporada en la primera fila de parrilla.

Moto2 Gp Alemania 2017001

Mattia Pasini se ha quedado a las puertas de entrar al corralito cerrado con una cuarta posición y muy destacable también la actuación de Héctor Garzo que se ha hecho con una quinta posición en su debut en el Campeonato del Mundo de Motociclismo. El piloto del Fim Cev Repsol y del Campeonato de España está en Alemania sustituyendo al lesionado Xavi Vierge.

Miguel Oliveira ha completado la segunda fila con la sexta posición. Thomas Luthi, Simone Corsi, Fabio Quartararo y Francesco Bagnaia han sido los pilotos que han terminado dentro del top ten. El resto de los nuestros, Axel Pons ha terminado décimo segundo, Jorge Navarro y Augusto Fernández décimo octavo y décimo noveno respectivamente. Edgar Pons vigésimo segundo, Isaac Viñales vigésimo noveno e Iker Lecuona trigésimo.

          París es siempre una buena idea   


Por Raúl Gotor


¡Por fin tenemos lo nuevo de Nicolas Barreau en un formato para llevar a todas partes!  El autor que nos encandiló con “La sonrisa de las mujeres”, vuelve para cautivarnos con una historia de amor, ilusiones y sueños a medio realizar. Nacido en Paris en 1980 es un escritor atípico, amante de su privacidad que estudió lenguas románicas en Sorbona. Envuelto en libros (trabajaba en una librería francesa) decidió encandilarnos él mismo con sus novelas obteniendo un gran éxito: “Me encontrarás en el fin del mundo”, “La sonrisa de las mujeres” o “Atardecer en París”. 

Booket nos ofrece esta maravillosa novela, ¡la portada es bonita, pero el interior es todavía mejor!

París es siempre una buena idea nos acerca a la vida de Rosalie, una chica de familia acomodada que nunca quiso una vida fácil y no se dejó amedrentar para poder crear su propia papelería en París y convertirse en ilustradora. 

Llena de deseos y de emociones ahogadas, vive su día a día con René, su novio, sin mayor emoción que la cotidianeidad de no inhalar su propia soledad. Marx Marchais, el escritor más famoso de Francia en cuentos infantiles le ofrecerá la mayor oportunidad de su vida, ilustrar su próximo éxito: El tigre azul.

Robert Sherman, proveniente de una familia americana de importantes abogados, es experto en literatura. El destino hace que viaje hasta París para sopesar una oferta como profesor en la Universidad de la Sorbona. 

Un día, paseando por el barrio de Montmatre y en plena transición existencial, se encuentra con una pequeña librería llamada Luna Luna dónde la exposición de El tigre azul, hará que se enfrente con su ilustradora para pedir explicaciones.

¿Qué esconde El tigre azul? ¿Por qué Robert se agita de tal manera al ver el libro publicado en ese país? 

Un pasado que permanece oculto y une demasiados destinos hará que lo que comienza como un encuentro en forma de ataque se desarrolle como aquella historia de amor que todos querríamos vivir en algún momento de nuestras vidas.

Escrita de una forma muy grácil, ágil como suelen ser este tipo de novelas, Nicolas nos sumerge en el mundo de personajes muy bien definidos, una Rosalie soñadora, un Robert orgulloso pero comprensivo, un Marx un tanto huraño, una madre (la de Rosalie) clasista y una Rachel (me reservo su parentesco) muy… Rachel. 

Una historia tierna, hecha para consumirla a pequeños tragos donde, aunque previsible, la trama engancha. Nicolas nos ofrece una oportunidad para escapar de nuestra monotonía y viajar a París donde, siempre con la Torre Eiffel como centro de todo, deleitará a los amantes de historias de amor únicas.

Os dejo sus primeras páginas para empezar a caminar por la ciudad de la luz.

          Charles Street, nº 44   


Hoy os presentamos una novela sin igual, una nueva historia en que las mujeres dejan de ser princesitas que lucen tacones altos para lucir una buena actitud y afrontar las adversidades de la vida con resolución, pensamiento positivo y el anhelo de la esperanza perdida.

Creo que Danielle Steel nos vuelve a mostrar que a veces hay que sacarse la corona y vestirse con la armadura de una guerrera para tomar las riendas de la propia vida pues dejarlo todo en manos del destino no es ninguna solución, además si quieres que algo bueno te pase has de hacer cambios en tu vida y en la manera de verla y entenderla.

Nuestra nueva amiga y protagonista, Francesca nos mostrará como un resurgir es posible. 

En Charles Street, nº 44 se nos narra su historia, ella es una hermosa neoyorkina propietaria de una galería de arte y una casa antigua que se ve ahogada por los pagos. Su ex marido es un experto en hacerle la puñeta y ella tendrá que hacer frente a los gastos de su casa ya que afortunadamente de la galería se encargará su padre.

Hay muchas soluciones pero no ve ninguna en claro hasta que decide alquilar alguna de las habitaciones de su casa para compartir gastos y de manera sutil llenar un vacío que le ha dejado su exmarido.

La situación se conduce hacia una felicidad y familiaridad que ella antes no conocía, entre los inquilinos y ella se gesta una unión fraternal de confidencias y amparos en la que todos tendrán su papel destacado. Las paredes de esa casa serán testigos de unas amistades que crecerán cada día en el amor y la honestidad.

Francesca cree que a pesar de su desamparo económico su mayor riqueza estaba dormida en su pecho, una amistad sin fin y una esperanza amorosa que nace donde menos la espera.

¿Cómo acabaran estos amigos? ¿De quién se enamora? ¿Se sanearán sus cuentas?

No os lo voy a contar ya que gracias a Debolsillo disfrutaréis de una novela esplendida en que los sentimientos más sinceros brotan a cada paso y la verdadera riqueza nace del interior.

Francesca nunca se da por vencida y merece un final feliz. ¿Cómo? ¿Con quién? 

Id a la librería más cercana y embriagaros de una de las mejores historias de esta consagradísima autora.

          Naqvi, Rishi Kapoor inaugurate '8th Jagran Film Festival'   

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor here on Saturday inaugurated the "8th Jagran Film Festival", which will travel to 16 cities across India and showcase over 400 films.

The festival will feature a retrospective on Rishi's acclaimed films including "Do Dooni Char", "Chandni", "Bobby", "Kapoor & Sons" and a part of "Mera Naam Joker".

"I am thankful that they are showing my films. I have been working in the industry for last 45 years, but nobody has showcased a retrospective of my work. I am very humbled by this. They are showing my eight-and-a-half films. This includes eight full films and one part of 'Mera Naam Joker'," Rishi said.

Also present at the inaugural ceremony were actresses Divya Dutta and Tannishtha Chatterjee.

The eighth edition of the festival kick-started with the screening of Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor-starrer "The Fakir of Venice".

The Anand Surapur directorial tells the story of an Indian conman, who is hired to find a fakir who can bury himself in sand for an installation art project in Venice. He passes off a poor slum-dweller from Mumbai as the real thing, conning the European art world successfully.

The festival will pay a homage to late actors Vinod Khanna and Om Puri with the screenings of their films "Achanak" and "Mr. Kabaadi".

Speaking on the occasion, Naqvi said: "This is a memorable occasion as people who have taken art and films to each and every house are associated with this festival. I am happy that through this festival, social messages are being transmitted to small places across India via films."

While Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and the starcast of upcoming film "Mom", including Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, were supposed to attend the opening ceremony, they were not able to make it to the event.

This year the festival will have Morocco as its country focus.

"We are pleased to showcase Moroccan films here. Bollywood is the oldest known cinema. Surprisingly, in Morocco, there are a few cinemas that are completely dedicated to the Indian movies. People there speak Indian languages just by watching Indian films," Moroccan Ambassador Mohamed Maliki told IANS.

The five-day Delhi leg of the film festival, which is talking place here at the Sri Fort Auditorium, will showcase Indian films like "Hindi Medium", "Pink", "Agneepath", "Shivaay", "M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Phillauri", "Sachin: A Billion Dreams", "Neerja", "Jolly LLB 2" and "Trapped".

Some films from different countries across the world that will be showcased this year include "Black Cat" (US), "Last Christmas" (Italy), "The Letterbox" (Turkey), "Adios Carmen" (Morocco), "The Bench" (Iran), "Inner Court" (Brazil) and "Letter to the Night" (France), among others.

After its Delhi leg, which will conclude on July 5, the festival will travel to cities like Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Bhopal, Indore, Hisar, Meerut and Raipur. The final leg of the festival will take place in Mumbai.

A somewhat unusual advert promoting lace fabric, obviously there's nothing unusual about a well established company using an advertising campaign to put a new spin on a traditional product, a lot of old brands tried to attract younger customers by tapping into various aspects of the counter-culture scene via print adverts at the time. But I do find it interesting  that they make a point of saying that the publicity photograph was taken 'spontaneously' with the participation of some hippie friends in the King's Road! Because generally speaking, advertisement campaigns are usually predetermined right down to the last detail. The couple on the right are the only ones actually wearing lace shirts, difficult to tell if they were also part of the impromptu gathering or if they were in fact agency models. Who knows?, perhaps just prior to or mid-way through the session they went out and scouted for suitable people on the street to join them, to give it a more authentic real life feel! Which wasn't a bad idea, but may have worked better in a natural setting. It's still a cool shot though, they almost look like they're a band!

          Whatever Happened to Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes?    
    

               Whatever Happened to Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes? 

If you were to browse through the men's fashion section of every other issue of Rave magazine from the mid 1960s onwards, I guarantee you would soon notice that the names Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes usually follow one after the other on a fairly regular basis. Much favoured by stylish young men about town, Topper Shoes were without a doubt one of the most happening footwear brands of the era. The clientele list included the British pop hierarchy such as The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces and The Who, as well as visiting international acts like Bob Dylan and Johnny Halliday...and yet, they seem to have 'almost' vanished from history. There is barely a trace of their legacy to be found online apart from the occasional Carnaby Street reference and a couple of interesting threads posted on 1960s/1970s style forums. Although in fairness, they have been name checked in several books and slightly elaborated upon in others through the personal stories of former customers, but there is no definitive account of the brand's heritage or any archival examples available all in one place that I am currently aware of. 

Topper shoes were already well established by the early 1960s, with three branches in London, one located at 68 Queensway in W2. and the others at 34 Coventry Street and 57 Shaftesbury Avenue in W1.  But they really came into their own when 18 year old Steven Topper, the owner's son, took the reins and headed for Carnaby Street. I don't have an exact date but he was definitely trading there by 1965, however, the earliest reference that i've come across in print from my personal magazine collection dates back to the 'London Swings' issue of Rave magazine from April 1966. Topper Shoes located at 45 Carnaby St is included in the poptastic illustrated Raver's Map of London along with a brief description of the shop on the next page.

By the following year they were featured in the Gear Guide a 'Hip-pocket guide to Britain's Swinging Fashion Scene' and while still brief, it gives a more detailed account of how things were progressing.  There were now two Topper Shoe shops on Carnaby Street, they were still at No.45 but also had a branch at No.9. The first one catered for men only, it was open Monday-Saturday 9.00 am-6.o0 pm with late night shopping until 7.00 pm on Thursday and Friday, with the range costing between three pounds to ten Guineas.  The other shop at No.9 had a 'beautifully cool interior in weird purply shades' it kept the same opening hours as the previous one but catered for Girls and Men..I've never seen any examples of their Girls shoes but apparently they had a wide and original range which cost from three pounds to five pounds-fifteen for shoes and from ninety-nine-and-elevenpence to seven pounds-nineteen and six for boots! All of the collections, which perfectly complimented the latest clothing for sale on the street were designed by Stephen Topper himself, and manufactured to a high standard in France and Italy.

According to Tom Salter's book about Carnaby Street there were a total of five Topper shoe shops in 1970,  i'm assuming at this point that he is referring to the original three that I have mentioned plus the last two..but then again, maybe not, perhaps some of the originals had closed and there were more branches in Carnaby Street or at new locations? It also says that the owner was a chap called 'Monty Stewart'...So, was Topper merely a business name rather than the actual family surname? While researching material for this post I came across a photograph of another branch at 146 Markham Street in SW3 (undated) and also a piece of film footage which features a Topper Shoe shop located on the King's Road circa 1977 but unfortunately the trail runs cold after that..Which leads me back to my original question...Whatever happened to Stephen Topper and Topper Shoes?

The Raver's Map of London, an illustrated guide to the most happening Boutiques, Discotheques and Restaurants in the Capital as featured in Rave magazine's 72 page London Swings issue of April 1966...and Topper Shoes make the list!  The description of the shop on the following page says that it sells reasonably priced mod designed shoes, and that they always have the latest! Designed by Steve Topper, at prices ranging from £2 10s to £7.

                                                                     
                                                                               
A close-up of the Raver's map, According to this, Topper Shoes located at number 45 Carnaby Street is situated between John Stephen's Tre Camp (No.46) and Ravel (No.44), but in reality it was actually next to Inderwicks the Tobacconist & Pipe Specialist on the left and Ravel on the right. (April 1966).



A rare photograph of the Topper Shoe shop facade at 45 Carnaby Street, you can just about see Ravel, but the door on the left is clearly Inderwicks the tobacconist shop, which intriguingly also seems to be located at number 45 Carnaby St! (perhaps it was an a&b situation?). Photograph © mario de biasi/Mondadori Portfolio via Getty Images. (1966)


Inderwicks, the Pipe & Tobacco Specialist at 45 Carnaby St, illustrated by Malcolm English for Tom Salter's Carnaby Street book in 1970. The company was founded in 1797 by John Inderwick, the original shop located on Wardour Street was one of the earliest tobacconists in London. They may have seemed out of place in the midst of the Carnaby St pop explosion but stayed put nevertheless, resisting several tempting offers on their lease throughout this period. The pop revolution actually enhanced their business rather threaten it, as curious Carnaby St shoppers spilled off the busy pavement and ventured in to buy their specialist tobacco blends, cigarettes and the long clay Churchwardens, Corncobs and Meerschaum pipes which they had been selling for 170 years. Above Inderwicks was the very first Aristos Boutique, it comprised of two rooms on the first floor, a small shop area in the front and a workroom in the back in which Constantinou Aristos ran up garments for girls. The son of a master tailor, he had graduated from the London College of Fashion in 1965 and with the profits from the fledgling boutique he soon opened up his second shop named Blooshp at 45 Newburgh Street, W1. He was eventually joined in the business by his younger brother Achillea, the two went on to expand the company, later renaming it Ariella in 1971.



Bob Dylan photographed by Barry Feinstein trying on shoes in Topper's (1966), He was at the end of a world tour at this point in time, playing The Royal Albert Hall twice while in London on May 26th & May 27th, so this was more than likely taken sometime on or around those dates. There seems to be a wall of fame in the background, perhaps made up of other well known celebrity customers, included are 'The Who' on Bob's immediate left, unmistakable in their pop art regalia.

The facade of another Topper shoe shop, which was included in a short news report for Thames Television in 1977 about the 'health concerns' associated with the fashion fad for wearing platform shoes! I'm not sure of the exact address of this branch, I think this is most likely to be the side view of the building rather than the main entrance, but it is definitely located somewhere on the King's Road. The precise number of the shop could be close to 59b, which is just seen on a door above the head of the interviewer for a couple of seconds at one point. I can't quite make out the name above the premises behind the Topper van opposite, but just beyond is a branch of Irvine Sellars' Mates boutique. Several interviews take place throughout the footage, there is one in particular filmed right outside Topper's with a young chap who seems to be fairly knowledgeable about the customer base, I can't help wondering if this is the manager of the shop or perhaps the elusive Steven Topper himself? I've also included a link to some footage of outtakes from the same film at the end of the post which provides excellent examples of popular street footwear and fashion of the time, lots of platform shoes, boots and wedged heels worn with flares, maxis and minis! Although, there is some discrepancy regarding the correct date via Pathé, who have credited it as 1970 this time round rather than 1977.

                                                   Could this be the elusive Stephen Topper?




An example of a pair of Lace Up, Leather Ox Blood, Bubble Toe, Crepe Wedges with matching suede side panel - which were available from Topper's in Carnaby Street circa 1972/73, they also came in black with a grey suede side panel. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who is still in possession of a pair of these or who knows the whereabouts of a pair for sale, and also any other information relating to  Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes. Note: Also known as/or referred to as Steven and Steve, throughout various original 1960s magazine articles).

          Travel and Tourism Week Highlights State's Third-Largest Industry    
By ND Commerce Tourism Division
Nationally, the travel industry contributes $2.1 trillion to the U.S. economy, and one in every nine American jobs depends on the industry. The impact of this is significant right here in North Dakota with 24 million visitors spending $3.6 billion across the state.
 
In recognition of the travel industry’s significant contributions to our state, Gov. Jack Dalrymple has declared May 1-7 “North Dakota Travel and Tourism Week.”
 
North Dakota Travel and Tourism Week is held in conjunction with the U.S. Travel Association’s National Travel and Tourism Week, an annual salute to the tourism and travel industry that recognizes the industry’s benefits and importance to communities and Americans.
 
“Tourism is an integral contributor to our state’s economic growth, generating revenue for hundreds of tourism-based businesses,” Dalrymple said. “I am pleased to declare North Dakota Travel and Tourism Week to honor the outstanding contributions the industry continues to make statewide, and look forward to welcoming millions of new and returning visitors each year to North Dakota.”
 
North Dakota’s travel industry continues to be a strong and stable contributor in our state’s economy, North Dakota Tourism Division Director Sara Otte Coleman said. “Travel spending impacts all 53 counties because of the variety of experiences offered. From the Badlands and parks, to historic sites and urban amenities, there are enticing reasons to travel in and around every corner of North Dakota.”
 
The Impact of Travel and Tourism in North Dakota:

          DSU Hosts Workshop on Small Business in the Bakken   
By The Dickinson Press
There’s an art to business, especially in the Bakken.Multiple voices gave insight on small businesses in the shale energy sector during a workshop hosted by Dickinson State University on Wednesday at the Strom Center.

The event featured both local and out-of-state experts and business leaders. The Small Business Development Center of North Dakota was responsible for organizing the workshop.

Dan Brockett, an educator from Penn State specializing in the shale energy industry, began the workshop with an overview of the industry. He said it was unique to the continent.

“We have shale plays all over the world, but none of them have really taken off, except in North America,” Brockett said.

He attributed this to aggressive entrepreneurs and private mineral ownership of resources underground.

Brockett stressed the importance of sustained interaction between shale energy industry companies and their communities. Otherwise, he said, it can be detrimental.

“If we don’t have the permission of our communities that we’re doing business in to do that business, it’ll go away,” Brockett said. “And it has.”

He cited New York, western Maryland and France as places where communities have banned hydraulic fracturing, which he feared could happen elsewhere as a result of poor public relations.

Brockett said the shale energy business is one that is “loyalty-based,” where someone who can “do the job and keep on doing the job” will remain in the business.

He said the industry is also based on technology and innovation.

“With this, it’s always changing, always evolving,” Brockett said.

He advised those interested in entering the industry to always keep track of what’s going on.

“It changes so rapidly,” Brockett said.

Jeremy Hancher, a consultant with the Environmental Management Assistance Program in Pennsylvania and a member of the SBDC in the state, said there are certain incentives for businesses to be more green.

“You can create a niche market for yourself and kind of stand out amongst your competitors,” he said.

Hancher said he noticed big fracking businesses in Pennsylvania are starting to prefer doing business with “green” small businesses because they are less likely to violate environmental laws.

He said there is one question that always comes up: “What’s in it for you?”

“You’re trying to save money and reduce costs, reduce concerns if you do want to do business with a larger company,” Hancher said.

The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new rules for the 2015-16 year, which he encouraged small businesses to voice their opinions on.

“As the proposals are coming out, it’s very important that you comment on them and let EPA hear what your concerns and your comments are,” he said.

The workshop included a panel of local business leaders and advisors that answered questions about starting and sustaining a small business in the shale energy industry. Ray Ann Kilen, interim associate director of the Strom Center and regional director of the North Dakota SBDC, served as moderator.

The panel consisted of Steffes Corp. CEO Paul Steffes, AWTY Logistics LLC President Elizabeth Vreswyk, North Dakota SBDC Business Advisor Renee Townsend and Alan Anderson, the North Dakota Department of Commerce commissioner.

Vreswyk, whose company produces maps and apps that help workers navigate the Bakken oilfields, said she simply saw a need and acted on it.

She said she could compete with any other logistics company because “you don’t have to call tech support because they’re sitting in Malaysia. I’m actually right here, boots-on-the-ground.”

Steffes said his manufacturing company remained small for some time after the first oil boom in the late ’70s and early ’80s, but he said it always adapted to what was required in the market.

He said things changed about eight years ago when Marathon Oil asked them to make some oil tanks. At the time, they were not in the oil business.

“We had never made an oil tank in our life,” Steffes said.

Since then, Steffes said his company has grown to 310 employees, and 75 percent of its products are now related to oil.

When Kilen asked for tips on surviving as a small business in the energy industry, both Vreswyk and Steffes said having the courage to try new things was key.

“We feel we must reinvent ourself every five years,” Steffes said, emphasizing innovation.

Froome sixth; Valverde crashes out
          Dalrymple Congratulates Bobcat on Production Milestone    
ND Governor's Office
Gov. Jack Dalrymple today congratulates Bobcat Co. and its employees for producing their one millionth loader which rolled off an assembly line at the company’s Gwinner, N.D. manufacturing plant.
 
“Achieving this remarkable production milestone is a testament to Bobcat’s skilled workforce and to the company’s commitment to quality and innovation,” Dalrymple said. “Bobcat is a great North Dakota success story, a major employer and a valued member of the state’s thriving manufacturing sector.”
 
Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley today joined Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat-Doosan of North America, and hundreds of Bobcat employees at the Gwinner plant to celebrate the production of the company’s one millionth loader. Gov. Dalrymple is attending National Governors’ Association meetings.
 
West Fargo-based Bobcat Co. employs about 2,000 people in North Dakota. The company has production facilities in Gwinner, Bismarck, Wahpeton, France and the Czech Republic, but all of its loaders are produced at the Gwinner plant. In addition to skid steer loaders, Bobcat manufactures compact track loaders, all-wheel loaders, compact excavators, telehandlers and other utility work machines.
 
Today’s production milestone comes six years after Bobcat Co. celebrated its 50th anniversary. The Melroe Manufacturing Co. began producing the Bobcat loader in 1958.  Today, Bobcat Co. has more than 900 Bobcat dealers in about 100 countries.
 
Others who joined Wrigley and Goldsbury at the celebration included Sen. John Hoeven, Rep. Kevin Cramer, Gwinner Mayor Dan McKeever as well as members of the Melroe and Keller families who invented, manufactured and branded the original Bobcat loader.

di due anni straordinari
Rassegna di incontri ideata e curata da Enzo Gentile

Teatro degli Arcimboldi
Viale dell’Innovazione, 20 –Milano

Appuntamenti del 3, 4, 5 e 6 luglio 2017
ore 19:00

A scrutare le stelle, a studiare la trama, a controllare il calendario, ci si accorge facilmente che non tutti i giorni, non tutte le date sono uguali: alcune hanno infisse le radici ben più profonde nel terreno e nelle memoria, per svettare con le loro fronde nell'alto dei cieli.


Si apre il mese di luglio de I Magnifici 7, la rassegna ideata e curata da Enzo Gentile – giornalista, scrittore, critico musicale e organizzatore, immerso a tutto tondo nella musica rock e pop. L’happening ininterrotto che vive di incontri, conferenze, dibattiti e anche di qualche piccolo concerto, che animerà il foyer del Teatro degli Arcimboldi fino al 31 luglio 2017, questa settimana vedrà come ospiti: Dente, Marco Pesatori e Rosarita Crisafi, Francesco Baccini, Emanuele Fasano, Riccardo Russino, Davide Verazzani e Rolando Giambelli.

Lunedì 3 luglio 2017_07_03
Dente
Uno dei nomi più interessanti della generazione degli anni Zero: Dente, alle anagrafe Giuseppe Peveri, Fidenza, traccia le sue canzoni con una delicata vena sospesa tra allusioni e realtà, tra elusione e beltà, incursioni originali, leggere e danzanti nei cieli degli Autori. Oltre che nei dischi - Canzoni per metà (2016) il più recente - la si coglie anche in campo editoriale: ha pubblicato per Bompiani e partecipato a Rebels, volume collettivo dedicato a David Bowie edito da La Nave di Teseo, dove Dente ha scritto una fiaba che leggerà dal palco. Quindi il testimone passa a Luca Garrò che racconterà del suo libro su Bowie (Hoepli).

Martedì 4 luglio 2017_07_04
Marco Pesatori e Rosarita Crisafi
Un connubio suggestivo per una conversazione tra Marco Pesatori, astrologo-scrittore dei più seguiti e apprezzati, e Rosarita Crisafi, sassofono tenore e baritono, musicista di esperienza e qualità, già nell’orchestra di Kenny Wheeler. Il loro incontro si concentra sull’ultimo libro di Pesatori, Il trigono del Sole (Feltrinelli), tra letture, scambi e visioni, per un interplay tutto da scoprire e da gustare. Sotto le stelle del jazz...

Mercoledì 5 luglio 2017_07_05
Francesco Baccini
Artista multitasking per definizione, Francesco Baccini rappresenta il lato colorato e giocoso della scuola genovese. Con successi accumulati fin dai primi passi di carriera (debutto discografico nel 1988), Baccini ha lavorato con profitto al cinema, in teatro, in tv, e ultimamente ha formato con Sergio Caputo il duo The Swing Brothers, di cui è atteso un album per l’autunno. Intanto Aletti Editori ha ristampato il suo primo libro, Nudo (Bompiani, 1993).

Giovedì 6 luglio 2017_07_06
Emanuele Fasano, Riccardo Russino, Davide Verazzani, Rolando Giambelli
Un artista in erba, già entrato di prepotenza nelle cronache e un disco da mezzo secolo nel mito. Si celebra il compleanno di Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band con cui i Beatles nel 1967 siglano una traiettoria artistica di miracoli e di capolavori: a documentarne l’epopea un libro appena edito da Hoepli (Sgt. Pepper - 50 anni) e una pattuglia di fidati testimoni, i giornalisti Riccardo Russino e Davide Verazzani (Processo a Sgt. Pepper), e Rolando Giambelli, presidente dei Beatlesiani Italiani. La parte musicale sarà invece assicurata da Emanuele Fasano, pianista ventenne: un caso mediatico su YouTube, ospite all’ultimo Festival di Sanremo e fresco di debutto con l’album La mia ragazza è il piano.


Gli incontri si terranno nel Foyer del Teatro degli Arcimboldi alle ore 19:00

La mostra sarà visitabile tutti i giorni dalle ore 17:00 alle ore 20:30

L’intera rassegna è a ingresso libero, sia per quel che riguarda la partecipazione agli incontri sia per la visita alla mostra.

Joined by a colorful cluster of the country's most talented up-and-comers, an eight-piece band, and maybe even a few special guests, this "Yuge"-ly original song cycle is an unmissable event that'll trigger even the toughest snowflakes!

A BROADWAY MUSICAL, BY Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, AND William F. Brown, JULY 16 AT 7PM & 9:30PM:

From idealistic playwrights to jaded theatre party ladies, from egotistical stars to meek directors, A Broadway Musical, written by the Tony Award-winning team behind Bye Bye Birdie, lovingly spoofs all those crazy people who make up that business called "show." In 1964, Charles Strouse and Lee Adams adapted Clifford Odets' play Golden Boy for Rat Packer, Sammy Davis, Jr. The trials and tribulations of creating Golden Boy became the springboard for Strouse and Adams' 1978 musical, A Broadway Musical. Despite a fantastic score, and a witty book by The Wiz's William F. Brown, A Broadway Musical closed on its opening night and has not been heard by New York audiences since that fateful performance in 1978. Now, for one night only, Feinstein's/54 Below will take everyone back to 1978 and give audiences a second chance to hear what only a few got to experience on December 21st, 1978 when we present A Broadway Musical in concert. Directed and Produced by Robert W. Schneider.

Starring Major Attaway (Aladdin), Glory Crampton (Rothschild & Sons), Clifton Davis (Aladdin, TV's Amen), Sarah Routh Ellis (A Gentleman's Guide To Love and Murder), Jason Graae (Forever Plaid & International Cabaret Artist), Kyle Scatliffe (The Color Purple), and Neva Small (Henry, Sweet Henry).

And starring from the original cast Gwen Arment, Maris Clement, Michael Kubala, and Larry Marshall (The Color Purple).

Also featuring Roger Dawley, Sean Green, Kyle Javon, Mychael Leverage, Lethabo Moffome, Paris Alexander Nesbitt, Ruby Shadley, Rebecca Spigelman, and Alexia Sielo.
