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

Tunisians brought down the dictator Ben Ali. Today, they continue to fight against his men to head the transitional government. In this new chapter of our series "Understanding the Muslim world," Mohamed Hassan * ((photo-cons) explains the implications of the revolution of Tunisia and its root causes: how nationalism Liberal advocated by Tunisia under Bourguiba interests Western, plunging people into poverty, how a repressive state has put in place to maintain this system, why dictatorships in the Arab world are caused to fall, and how Islam became the condom imperialism

(Gregory Lalieu Michel Collon)


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

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

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

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

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

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

What do you mean by imperialism?


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

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

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


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

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


What Was Tunisia important for the United States?

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

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

Nasser announced the nationalization of the Suez Canal in 1956

Can we be both nationalist and pro-imperialist?

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

What were the effects of this new economic policy?


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Planning and management in the Missional agenda of the 21st Century Church: A study of Lighthouse Chapel International   

Planning and management is an important aspect of every successful organisation. In a similar way as the church participates in the missio Dei, it is essential that we consider planning and management as part of the missional tools for the management of the various resources God has given the church. Doing this, church leadership must join in with the Father (God) and the Holy Spirit to know what he wants to accomplish in their context as they plan and manage God’s resources for missional purposes. In the light of this understanding, the article discusses the role of ‘planning and management in the missional agenda of the 21st century church’ by using one of the fastest growing Neo-Pentecostal churches in Ghana, the Lighthouse Chapel International, as a case study. The central argument in this paper is that although leadership has a major role to play in missional planning, it is however a holistic and all-inclusive agenda. Missional planning includes the involvement of the Holy Spirit, congregational leadership, the entire congregation and the various resources the church is being endowed with by God.

Intradisciplinary and/or interdisciplinary implications: The study is an interdisciplinary study between Missiology, Planning, and Management. The result from the study will enhance the Ecclesiastical Community to appreciate the importance of management and planning as they participate in the missio Dei.

          Jungle gold reviews and thoughts 11/2/2012, 11/9/2012   
I decided to smash my reviews of the last two episodes of Jungle gold into this one post. you have to believe me when I say that blogging about this show is almost as painful as watching it. That being said here we go.
On the 11/2/2012 episode Scott and George go to see if they can get their trommel. Guess what. It's surrounded by water. They drop the last of their investors money on a new one. I posed the question in the last Jungle gold review. If your in a country that has a rainy season. Why are you mining during it? This episode just proved my point. Moving on now. It seems that the land owner of the claim they are on now did not let everyone in their family know about the land deal he had struck with Scott and George. A domestic dispute with the machete wielding brother in law comes soon after. Now I can understand wanting to protect your security guy but putting the skinny native dude into the death crippler flying chicken wing hold was probably not the best decision. Important safety tip coming up........DON"T MAKE ENEMIES IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. They did do one thing right though. They got a maintenance man out there. Now if they where smart they would have had one there from the get go but whatever.

Now for the 11/9/2012 episode. It's really more of the same. The investor is getting impatient,they are having logistics and mechanical problems and to top it off they have to sleep in the Jungle now to protect their equipment because off all the friends they have made in Ghana so far. They ran a bit of dirt now and got like five grams or something like that. That struck me as funny. If they wanted those kind of clean outs they could have just come here to Ohio to mine. The other thing I wanted to touch on in this episode was the logistics problems. They have to haul all of their fuel in to their claim. To do that they have to trespass on a Chinese claim a little bit. Now that's all good but you can't turn around and beat your chest like a gorilla when they wander on to yours. Those Chinese miners were sending a pretty clear message as far as I am concerned and Scott and George need to start paying attention before they get killed out there.  My suggestion to them........Make friends with your Chinese neighbors and do it quick.  Okay that's all I can stand. Comments are appreciated below. Don't forget to follow or subscribe. The Gold rush Alaska 11/9/2012 episode review is coming soon. Thanks for reading


          Jungle gold review 10/26/12 episode   
  Jungle gold is about two guys from Utah. George Wright and Scott Lomu used to make a living in the housing market. When the bottom dropped out they where out of work. Now they are in Ghana Africa during a modern day gold rush and making a show about it. From what I have seen so far they are going to have a rough time. First off I have to say this. You are in a country that has a rainy season. Why would you mine during the rainy season? Duh.. I don't get it and that just seems really stupid to me. Flooding will be an ongoing problem for them. Another serious problem they had right away was with their claim.  They had paid to lease a claim and arrived to find armed Chinese miners all over it. When they went to the village chief to complain they got a "there's nothing we can do".  They managed to get another claim lined up and got their excavator to the only high ground on it. After all that the wives are needing money so George and Scott do a back alley gold deal. This seems really dangerous. Large amounts of money are involved. There is always a chance you will get robbed or worse. Ghana is indeed in the middle of a modern day gold rush but it's a third world country so there is a bit of lawlessness going on. Anyhow they buy low and sell high and make just under a grand. To tell you the truth I'd like to see a show about the back alley gold deals. It is to early to tell whether or not I like the show but I will say the first episode was a bit painful to watch. What's your opinion on the Jungle gold show? Comments are welcome. Thanks for reading. don't forget to follow or subscribe.

Hair by Raini Leeves

Amy Adams, who won Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her performance in the film “Big Eyes,” wore classic Hollywood waves by hairstylist Raini Leeves.

Learn more about her look at Birchbox.com.

Ralph Fiennes

KC Fee gave actor Ralph Fiennes, who was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy for his leading role in “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a classically groomed look. “He epitomizes the dapper and sophisticated Englishman,” said Fee. She applied Rock Hard Gel on damp hair and combed it back in place, followed by Superfine Hair Spray for hold and shine.

Michelle Monaghan
Hair by Marilee Albin

Hairstylist Marilee Albin styled Michelle Monaghan of “True Detective,” who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie and who also starred in the film “The Best of Me.” Albin finished Monaghan’s side-part blowout with Superfine Strong Hair Spray.

Christine Baranski
Hair by Jonathan Hanousek

“The Good Wife” star Christine Baranski loves a lot of volume, according to her hairstylist Jonathan Hanousek, who complemented her Zac Posen gown with a clean, classic and full bob. “Tucking the hair behind her ears allowed us to show off her beautiful cheekbones and amazing earrings,” said Hanousek.

Get the Look:
1. Apply Volumista Mist for Volume on damp hair from roots to ends.
2. Blow-dry on high heat with a medium-sized round brush, overdirecting the roots for added volume and allowing each section to cool before removing the brush.
3. Once the hair is completely dry, spray the roots and midshaft of the hair with Thick Dry Finishing Spray. Set it in large Velcro rollers.
4. After about 30 minutes, remove the rollers and shake out the hair. Flip the head over and use Dry Texturizing Spray throughout.
5. Shape the hair in place with a wide-tooth comb. Tuck one side of the hair behind the ear.
6. Finish the look with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.

Savannah Guthrie
Hair by Laura Castorino

“TODAY Show” host Savannah Guthrie covered red carpet arrivals for the evening. Hairstylist Laura Castorino used her “best friend,” Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray, to maintain Guthrie’s look through the rainy weather.

Get the Look:
1. Apply Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray on damp hair, blow-dry and flat-iron.
2. Set the hair on the crown of the head in large Velcro rollers for extra lift.
3. Starting by the ear, braid the front of the hair and tuck it underneath the back of the head.
4. Remove the rollers and finish the look with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.

Natalie Morales
Hair by Laura Castorino and Vito Esposito

“TODAY Show” host Natalie Morales also covered the red carpet sporting a ’40s-inspired look. Castorino gave Morales a blowout using Maximista Thickening Spray and set it with Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray. Esposito finished the look by creating curls with a medium-barrel curling iron, which he broke up with his fingers and pinned to one side.

aabbccdd wrote:Listen mates, hate to hurt feelings but what I describe simply will not work if you're an obvious gay or unattractive. In other words, my experience will only apply to people who are young, very attractive, naturally masculine, and are naturally fun for a Ghana boy to hang with... otherwise what would be his natural incentive?

As much as I'm sure you'd like, certainly I will NOT violate trust and share any of these boys details to any of you without the boy's permission. Don't have anything to prove to anyone on here... you can believe it or not, it's your choice. Keep in mind, just because someone was personally into me, of course this has no bearing on whether they might harbour similar feelings for you. I believed the purpose of this particular thread was to share your experiences while in Africa, but I can see that some of the readers possess other agendas, which is pathetic and unfortunate; I will not participate in this.

But for anyone who is simply perusing my thread for the pleasure of listening to one's experience, and is looking for an informed opinion on what might make their holiday in a place like Ghana a smashing success, my best advice is to bypass trying to prearrange friendships via the internet and simply attempt to make friends only upon arrival. This will allow you to better gauge whether the person is being genuine with you or not (assuming you possess a good judge of character). A prearranged internet "friendship" only invites the boy to take his time to devise a plan on how he wants to take advantage of you upon your arrival. Please don't be so hungry and desperate.

WARNING: like I told you in a previous post (but only worded more vaguely then), my experiences are specific only to me, and will not be specific to you. It's ultimately up to you to figure out how to make your own experience successful. As a rule of thumb, however, if you are generally unsuccessful on getting dates in your native country, then why in the world do you expect it to be any bloody different in Ghana unless you're willing to flaunt your Pounds/Euros/Dollars and/or your elite country citizenship to get laid. Be realistic mates, but have fun.

This is no charity-all models- were get paid wery well.
And sending more pics to forum and trying to cheat money from EU guys is something weird. ???????????
Do we the same ? do we ask Africans for sending money to us and telling them false stories about our lives here in EU?
I dont think so.
I think africa is poor just because those lying , cheating, and fear etc.
For exaample it never happens in Asia. NO asian boys ask for money on web , no lie strories about their family poverty , and they are same poor as africa boys !!!maybe more- but they are fair.
So forget this nonsense with "friends" asking money and send more nude pics cause this is great EROTIC website!
More dicks, ass and cumshots, and less lies - stories about poverty and "problems" /this word is african mantra/!



Shut up idiot. I asked you some questions in my last post which you ignored. You think i don't know you're the homophobic self-hating Ghanaian fool that contacted me with threats a few weeks ago?

I asked you to mention the friend of mine that you contacted, and provide any emails you and i may have exchanged since you say i asked you for money as well. Idiot.

I always made it clear from the beginning that i'm looking to get any of my friends linked up with someone that can help them, or at least send them something in exchange for a few private pics or webcam show. It's a free world, so if that wasn't your cup of tea, you should have just moved on and ignored my post.

Imagine this fool hoping for a romantic, no strings attached hook-up from contacts on a pornsite :roll: ?

I can tell you that anyone seeking to travel to Ghana is better-off with one of my friends, than with someone that says 'oh, i love you and i want to spend the rest of my life with you'. At least with any of my friends, you know what the deal is from the beginning, and if it's not what you want then you're free to move on and look for everlasting love somewhere else (hopefully not a pornsite).

          Re: Sightseen Naked Men @ Rivers   
I've seen young men bathing naked on beaches along the Ghana coast especially in Accra and the West Coast. I have also seen men bathing naked outside a bath house near Grace Jones Hotel at Labadi first step junction in Accra. They paid a small fee to the attendant, were given a large enamel basin full of water, soap and flannel and they all stood outside in full view of passers by on the main road, pouring water on themselves with a plastic bowl, soaping down their naked bodies, washing their cocks, balls, assholes etc and it was all normality, no one was taking a blind bit of notice. Then one of the bathers saw a pretty young lady walking past and he got a spontaneous erection, called out to her endearingly and began swinging his long soapy erection in a very provocative manner but he lady just turned her face in the opposite direction, did her best to ignore him and walked past as quickly as she could looking quite embarrassed and feeling harassed. Of course I had a very good look, laughed and enjoyed the view as I walked past feeling my cock rising & precum wetting my boxer shorts. So, I recommend Ghana for that but I heard that other African countries are similar, especially Kenya which has many quiet or isolated beaches not much visited by tourists where you can meet very well endowed guys and enjoy hot sex in a lot of hiding places... Beaches in Togo and Benin are probably equally as good. In some landlocked countries you will also have riverside and lakeside beaches where you will see naked guys bathing. Ghana too has a lakeside beach in it's Eastern Region which I hope to try out on my next visit there. Have fun!

          Re: A wierd fetish???   
When I was in Cape Coast, Ghana, I saw a tall strong looking fisherman taking a piss at the back of his house as I walked along a road near the beach...and he was impressively well endowed, he pissed for a long time and as he saw me looking at his cock he turned it towards me for me to get a better look and I was truly awe-struck by how long, thick, meaty and tasty it looked... then when he was finished pissing he gave it a good lengthy shake deliberately for my benefit before he put it away in his shorts and went back inside his house... Watching a handsome guy pissing is one of my favourite fetishes... and I find it a real turn on... Moreover, seeing a guy take a dump can also be a turn on if you are at a distance and can't smell anything (or seeing pics of it) can have a strange appeal and can arouse one sexually in a very unusual way... just enjoy the feeling and forget the reality... Sexual enjoyment comes in many guises...life is too short to prudish, just have an open mind and go with the flow...life is for living...enjoy!

          Re: Sex tourism in Gambia...   
From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

Be carefull to get in contact with some guys in Ghana. There are many fakers and try to get you in trouble!!!
My friend there also warned me many times, but if you want to meet nice guys there, contact me. I will try to
find you a thrustworthy person.

          Re: 'Paradise Discovered, At Last'   
I dont know about you but God has been kind and I discovered mine couple of days ago..... I heard from my Rohit last week and we got together the day before....As a matter of fact he,s lying in bed totally pooped out from our encounter after lunch today and we,ve been at it all afternoon...now thats what I call PARADISE. We lost touch with each other soon after school and then bumped into each other in HongKong much later on Nathan Road ,,while I was on a shopping spree with my wife and he with his. In short ,, we exchanged pleasantries and also our business cards. Some days later I had a call from him asking me if we could get together. It was as if I had found KOHINOOR DIAMOND.... I was perplexed and didnt know if it was all a dream or real. To cut a long story short we did meet up in Delhi and got together in Meridian hotel where we stayed for three whole days ...totally freaked out on each other till none of us had even a drop of cum left. We had such wild lovemaking that would put the best of North Africans or Blacks Or whatever to shame. Although both of us were worried about our marital status and although we had initial inhibitions whether it was right or whatever yet we just freaked out and believe u me it was the best time of my life..and his , too ..or so he told me and I could make out he was not shamming. God has his own ways and I discovered this....it was a very pleasant surprise to be together with the guy of my dreams... Now for the extraordinary bit.....For the first time ever after being forewarned about the rigours of AIDS....We both drank each other's cum many times as if we couldnt do without it.....Mind you..No tests no nothing...it was plain simple love.....We both trusted and just gave into each other. Please dont forget that we both are married people and such things are unheard of in India. I have no idea if I,m ill and I,m sure he is no different. But we both made love in good faith..like old times and I have no regrets whatsoever. Our next encounter is scheduled for Dusseldorf in Germany where I,ve invited him to be my guest for 2 weeks and thereafter , if all goes well, I,ll visit him in Paris where he is working as a Marketing manager and living alone. I want everyone to know that I,ve been with some of the best guys from the world over without having to pay a penny ,save for times when I,ve spent on maybe a meal. I,ve never EVER paid a dime for sex and I,ve had the best of guys of all shapes, sizes and colour from all over....and I,ve NEVER EVER been blackmailed by anyone including the dozen odd Nigerians or the dozen odd Ghanaians or cameroonians or kenyans that I went around with.....mind you ....Not ONE. God be with you all. Cheers.

Over twenty years ago I found a ghanaian penpal in a gay-contamagazine.
I was able to take him to Germany, sent him to a languageschool and he
absolved a malenurse-school. -He was bisexual like many other african men and our love-and sexcontacts endet after short years because of his desire to marry a girl and to get children. -But we are still good friends during all this long time up to today and he never forget that I took him out of poverty.
Than I lived together a second time with an african friend from Ivory Coast
whom I found in Paris. Unfortunately he left me after two years when he found a younger friend. (That`s life everywhere) Because of my husbands I visited several times their homelands and I came in contact with a lot of
their gay friends in Africa. I met gay men not only in Accra or Abidjan, also in the smallest villages.
I think homosexuality and love and sex between men exist in every part of the world. -Europeans with open heart and interest for african men should never forget that most of young men are very poor and in need for help. - Of course they would find sex for money too like everywhere, but african boys in Africa (maybe if they grew up in Europe)have nearly never interest for anonymous sex and one`s like in european gayscenes.
          Dwyer scores in debut as US beats Ghana 2-1   
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. –  Dom Dwyer volleyed in a go-ahead goal in the 19th minute of his international debut, ran to the corner flag and did a double back flip that would make a gymnast proud. Back home in Missouri, wife Sydney Leroux was overjoyed. The goal made Dwyer and Leroux the first husband-and-wife couple to score for the United States, which beat Ghana 2-1 on Saturday in an exhibition ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. “I’m very proud of Sydney and what she’s achieved and still achieving in the national team,” Dwyer said. “I’ve got quite a few caps to catch up to her, and a few goals, too.” Brad Guzan saved Asamoah Gyan’s penalty kick in first-half stoppage time, and Kellyn Acosta added his first international goal in the 52nd minute on a low free kick that bounced in. Gyan curled a free kick just under the crossbar in the 60th, leaving the ...

          "CURIOSIDADES CUBANAS" Y SU ORIGEN   
Para la gente que le gustan estas cosas y quieran saber el origen de todo

El origen del fufú de plátano:
 ¿Ha comido usted alguna vez el fufú de plátano?

Según Don Fernando Ortiz, el gran investigador del folclore cubano, durante la dominación inglesa en Cuba, después de la toma de La Habana, entraron muchos esclavos llevados por los ingleses. La comida que normalmente se daba a los esclavos era plátano hervido y machacado y se cree que esta forma de comerlo venía de Ghana y Sierra Leona. Los negreros ingleses acostumbraban a decir "food,food,food" (comida, comida,comida!), cuando repartían las raciones a los esclavos; de ahí que éstos comenzaran a darle el nombre de "fu-fu".
            Este plato se conoce en el Caribe y, en algunos lugares del  oriente cubano, como machuquillo, matajibaro, mofongo en Puerto Rico ; y mangu en República Dominicana.


Los "Fotingos"
cid:00ac01c93be3$b4f5ea80$8331470a@desktop
  Los cubanos del siglo pasado solían llamar a los automóviles "fotingos", pero es interesante saber el por qué, ya que la palabra no existe en el Diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua Española.
En 1908, la Ford Motor Company de los Estados Unidos sacó su famoso Ford Modelo "T". Desde el punto de vista técnico el Ford Modelo "T"
 incorporó la modalidad del sistema de tres pedales: embrague, freno y acelerador.
            La publicidad de la Ford describía la novedad como el sistema de "foot it and go", es decir, pisar y arrancar.
            Los primeros automóviles arribaron a Cuba en 1899 y eran de
 fabricación francesa, pero cuando el modelo Ford llegó al país se hizo popular y los criollos comenzaron a usar la palabra "fotingo" (cubanizando la frase "foot it and go") para designar al modelo "T" de la Ford.Tambien le llamaban "tres patas" (embrague, freno y acelerador).

¿Por que los cubanos les llaman a los campesinos "guajiros"?
 
Durante la guerra de independencia de 1895 en Cuba el
 campesinado cubano se unió a las tropas libertadoras que comandaba el
 Generalísimo Máximo Gómez, nacido en la bella isla de Quisqueya y  por el Apóstol de la libertad de Cuba,  Jose Martí y Pérez.

            La guerra del 95, como la llaman los cubanos a la guerra de la independencia, ya casi estaba ganada por los mambises (palabra despectiva  de los españoles hacia las tropas cubanas). Cuando las tropas norteamericanas desembarcaron en Cuba, le llamaban a los combatientes cubanos War Heroes (héroes de guerra), para el oído de los campesinos y otros cubanos al comando de la tropas sonaba Guajiro.  Y por esta razón que el único campesino en toda nuestra América es referido cómo "guajiro".

El gallo de Morón

            Entre los cubanos es popular la frase:" se quedó como el Gallo de Morón, sin plumas y cacareando". Muchos piensan que se trata de un famoso gallo originario en Morón, Provincia de Camagüey , Cuba . Pues bien, la historia es que el Gallo de Morón ni era un gallo, ni era de Morón, ni tuvo que ver con Cuba .

            Se trata de una leyenda del siglo XVI, cuando el recaudador de impuestos de Granada se presentó en Moron de la Frontera (Sevilla) a ejercer su oficio. Como el sujeto tenía aspecto de matón y forma de actuar muy grosera se le bautizo como el Gallo de Moron.
            Los moronenses se hartaron de los desplantes de aquel gallo y un buen día le atizaron una tunda de palos tan contundente, que éste tuvo que marcharse de Morón sin atreverse a volver por más impuestos. De ese episodio surgió una copla popular que decía: "Anda que te vas quedando / como el Gallo de Moron / sin plumas y cacareando / en la mejor ocasion".


        cid:00af01c93be3$b4f5ea80$8331470a@desktop   El origen de los "guatacas"
 
La azada es un apero de labranza que se utiliza en los campos de  Cuba para desbrozar los cultivos, es decir, eliminar las malas yerbas y para despejar las guardarrayas en los campos de caña. Los cubanos la llaman guataca.
            También llamamos guataca a esos seres abyectos que se dedican a adular a los poderosos, sobre todo a los gobernantes. El origen de esta palabra se remonta a los tiempos del presidente Machado. Con Machado los aduladores se "pasaron de rosca", como se dice en cubano,en otras palabras estaban en abundancia. Le llamaban el egregio y le construían arcos triunfales a su paso..
            El genial caricaturista Ricardo de la Torriente , del semanario satírico " La Política Cómica ", comenzó a publicar unas caricaturas en las que aparecia Machado rodeado de un grupo de aduladores que provistos  de azadas o guatacas, precedian al general limpiando la senda que este debia pisar.
            El pueblo empezó a llamar a estos aduladores "guatacas" y el mote pegó. Había nacido la palabra guataca y el verbo guataquear.. Desde entonces a todo aquel que adula, "hala la leva" o "hace la pelotilla", se le llamó en Cuba guataca.

La hora de los mameyes

En el léxico cubano hay una frase que muchos usamos sin conocer su significado: "la hora de los mameyes" .
            Esta frase, según me cuentan, se originó hace más de doscientos años durante la toma de La Habana por los ingleses. Durante ese episodio los habaneros, con esa costumbre tan cubana de ridiculizar a los que no podemos vencer, dieron en llamar "Mameyes a los soldados ingleses por el color del uniforme que vestían: chaqueta roja-mamey y pantalón negro. Por aquella época La Habana estaba rodeada por un muralla que la protegía de corsarios y piratas. Cada noche a las nueve se disparaba un cañonazo desde la fortaleza del Morro, para avisar a los habaneros que las puertas de la muralla se cerrarían durante la noche. Y como a esa hora los odiosos "mameyes" se hacían más visibles patrullando las calles, los habaneros bautizaron a las nueve de la noche como "la hora de los mameyes" .

-Var pasifistikonet Gandhi rasist? I Ghana ble en Gandhistatue krevd fjerne pga rasismebeskyldninger. - Gandhi er kontroversiell, sier Indiaekspert. - Mørket senker seg over Europa. Europa er Aftenlandet, der solen går ned. Ideen finnes både i kommentarfeltene og på gata. Men hva menes med Aftenlandet (som bla A-en i PEGIDA står for)? Å oppleve å ha kontakt med døde personer. Det er mye vanligere enn vi har trodd til nå, viser forskning på sorg og sorgreaksjoner.

- Riv statuen av "RasistGhandi"! #GandhiMustComeDown, heter det i Ghana. #GandhiMustFall, i Sør Afrika. Begge steder ønskes en statue av Gandhi fjernet. Så hva mente ikkevolds-ikonet, og Nelson Mandelas forbilde, om svarte? Etnisk klassedeling på videregående skole i Danmark. - Vi samler de danske elever for å unngå at de forlater skolen, sier rektor. Han mener grepet er til beste for alle skolens elever. Konemorder i et sykt samfunn. Del 3 i vår serie om ekstrem sjalusi. I et patriarkalsk samfunn forventes mannen å ha kontroll over kvinnen. Så når Pozdnysjevs hustru får beskjed av legen om ikke å føde flere barn og får prevensjon, så blir han sjalu. Fryktelig sjalu. Vi hører ofte om tvang i eldreomsorgen, men hva slags tvang er det snakk om? De fleste av oss blir aldri demente, men med økende antall eldre rammer demens likevel så mange at bruken av tvang er økende.

Pic 2: Red 1 (302) bead size 2 mm
Pic 3: Pinkish red (305) bead size 2 mm

African waist beads were used to trade and even to pay for slaves,gold, property and other valuable items in Western African for many years. Ghana is pretty much attributed to be the bead production capital of the world. Some believe that they will help protect pregnant women or even provide birth control as did their ancestors many years ago.
In African tradition, waist beads are not for show, meant to be worn under clothing. But in the Western World it's certainly a form of personal expression and individual interpretation. They're for all women -- any body type, any race, any background. Women of all age, shapes and sizes can confidently adorn themselves with waist beads as well.
In Ghana women knew that waist beads helped form their body into a particular shape and adult women wear beads to sexually stimulate the male, as visual aphrodisiac. In other parts of West Africa, women would wear waist beads with bells on them, and when they walked it would make a jingling noise.
When you add stones, waist beads take on healing qualities. Depending on ailment or what needs to be enhanced (i.e. love, physic powers, balancing), various semi-precious stones can be included in the design of your waist beads.

In Ghana women knew that waist beads helped form their body into a particular shape and adult women wear beads to sexually stimulate the male, as visual aphrodisiac. In other parts of West Africa, women would wear waist beads with bells on them, and when they walked it would make a jingling noise.
When you add stones, waist beads take on healing qualities. Depending on ailment or what needs to be enhanced (i.e. love, physic powers, balancing), various semi-precious stones can be included in the design of your waist beads.

          II blue colors waist beads with crystals, stranded on cotton thread, 42/44 inches, Fair Trade by OriginsWB   

4.50 USD

One strand of tiny waist beads or belly chains, on cotton thread, measuring approx. 42/44 inches. The beads size is approx. 2 x 2 mm. 5 different shades of blue to choose from. (please, feel free to send me a message if you want more pics of one specific color). You can make your waist beads strand smaller if you wish to.

These beautiful waist beads, very thin, are traditionally worn in Africa by women and girls usually in a set of 3. They can be easily adjusted down to the waist size by removing excess beads before tying on the waist and they are intended for long term wear. Some very spiritual women prefer these waist beads stranded on cotton thread because they don't want any clasp or metal on their body.
You can also wrap them around your wrist , neck or ankle. (Please note, these are not custom made waist beads).

With their rich jewel-like colors, blue beads are the royalty of the bead world, long revered for their magical powers and worn by the most important members of the society.

African waist beads were used to trade and even to pay for slaves,gold, property and other valuable items in Western African for many years. Ghana is pretty much attributed to be the bead production capital of the world. Some believe that they will help protect pregnant women or even provide birth control as did their ancestors many years ago.

          2-1. Los jóvenes valores de EE.UU. muestran su potencial de cara a la Copa Oro   

La selección de Estados Unidos venció hoy por 2-1 a la de Ghana en el último partido amistoso de preparación de cara a su participación en la decimocuarta edición de la Copa Oro.

A pesar de salir con los jóvenes valores, Estados Unidos controló siempre el juego y el marcador después de que el delantero Dominic Dwyer consiguiera el 1-0 en el minuto 19 de la primera parte tras rematar a media vuelta con la pierna izquierda el balón que le puso el defensa Jorge Villafaña.

Dwyer, jugador que milita en el Cuckfield, del fútbol de la segunda división inglesa, hizo su debut con la selección de Estados Unidos, al igual que Kenny Saief, que salió en la segunda parte en lugar de Joe Corona.

Aunque Estados Unidos tuvo oportunidad de haber incrementado el marcador y Ghana también de lograr el empate, ya no se movió cuando ambos equipos se fueron al descanso.

La reanudación del juego en la segunda parte permitió a Ghana su mejor oportunidad de haber conseguido el empate después de que la defensa de Estados Unidos cometiera penalti, que lanzó Asamoah Gyan, pero el veterano arquero Brad Guzan se lanzó muy bien hacia el palo derecho y metió una mano que evitó el gol.

Estados Unidos reaccionó y cuatro minutos más tarde, a los 52, el volante hispano Kellyn Acosta, otra de las jóvenes promesas del fútbol de Estados Unidos, de falta puso el 2-0 a favor del equipo local.

Luego, como es habitual en partidos amistosos, comenzó el carrusel de sustituciones, seis por parte de Ghana y cinco de Estados Unidos.

El equipo africano pudo conseguir el gol del honor al minuto 61 por mediación de Gyan, que se vengó con un disparó de falta que batió por toda la escuadra derecha a Guzan.

Tras el gol de la selección ghanesa, el partido discurrió sin mayor interés futbolístico que destacar, con Estados Unidos que se gustó en el toque de balón, buenas triangulaciones y sobre todo una gran confianza en los nuevos que han llegado al combinado de las Barras y las Estrellas.

Los mejores del partido por parte de Estados Unidos fueron Villafaña, que se ha hecho con todo merecimiento del puesto de defensa izquierdo, donde impone su clase como defensor, pero también sube con facilidad para ser un atacante más.

Acosta fue otro de los destacados en el combinado nacional que dirige Bruce Arena, que confía plenamente en la nueva figura del FC Dallas, un jugador con gran poder físico, técnica y facilidad rematadora.

Mientras que Ghana, como sucedió en el partido amistoso que el pasado miércoles jugó ante México, se dedicó a cumplir el expediente a mostrar su gran poder físico, pero al final no tuvieron acierto a la hora de rematar al arco defendido por Guzan, que también fue decisivo en el triunfo de Estados Unidos, que tiene marca perfecta de 4-4-0, desde que se hizo cargo del equipo Arena, el pasado noviembre.

Estados Unidos, que seguirá la preparación de cara al inicio de la Copa Oro, forma parte del Grupo B y hará su debut el próximo 8 de julio frente a Panamá, en el Nissan Stadium de Nashville (Tennessee).

El resto del grupo lo conforman las selecciones de Martinica y Nicaragua, que también comenzarán la competición el mismo día en jornada doble.

          Comment on Chairman Etisalat Nigeria, Hakeem Belo-Osagie, resigns by Hakeem Bello-Osagie Again?   
Obasanjo would be grinning somewhere, Rasaki Bello-Osagie again? What did he learn after driving him away from Nigeria, or what changed, to warrant his chairing a board? Sure, by next week he will be in Ghana. He was the predecessor of the current Chief of Staff in U.B.A. Plc. He and his team must have been padded or soft landed. Error regretted, this is about Hakeem and not Rasaki Bello-Osagie.
          Matt Miazga hopes for breakthroughs with US and Chelsea   

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — When Matt Miazga walked out of his apartment in the Dutch city of Arnhem this spring, people implored him over and over: "Win the cup! Please win the cup!"

The boyish-looking American defender did just that, wearing Vitesse's yellow-and-black striped jersey as he started on the back line for a 2-0 win over Alkmaar in the Dutch Cup final on April 30.

It was the first major trophy in the 125-year history of a club that plays in a city best-known as the site of Operation Market Garden, a World War II battle portrayed in the 1977 film "A Bridge Too Far." Miazga and his teammates were rewarded with an open-topped bus parade through the city and a song-filled celebration.

"A lot of good vibes. A lot of happy people," he said.

Now the 6-foot-4 center back is with the U.S. national team for the first time in more than a year as the Americans prepare for a Saturday exhibition against Ghana and the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The roster includes many young and inexperienced players hoping to break into the first-tier roster for World Cup qualifying. Miazga turns 22 on July 19.

"Players in their situation don't have a lot of opportunities," U.S. coach Bruce Arena said Friday. "This competition, not only tomorrow but the Gold Cup, is going to be important for them to indicate where they are as players in our pool."

Living in Clifton, New Jersey, Miazga joined the Red Bulls under-14 team in 2009 and made his Major League Soccer debut four years later. He became a regular in 2015 and was sold the following January to English power Chelsea for a transfer fee of about $5 million.

At the time of the deal, Miazga was training with the U.S. in California. He flew home to New Jersey, packed three suitcases and a carry-on bag and headed to London that night.

"It is a lonely road sometimes, but that's part of it," he said. "You've got to sacrifice. You've got to dedicate to your profession. But at the same time, being by yourself a lot helps you focus, keeps you tunnel vision."

Living in a hotel near Stamford Bridge, he made his debut for the Blues on April 2, 2016, in a Premier League match at Aston Villa. A week later at Swansea, his headed clearance of Jefferson Montero's cross went straight to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored on a 25th-minute volley for the game's only goal. Miazga was given a yellow card 15 minutes later and was replaced at the start of the second half. He didn't play for the rest of the season.

"When you're in Europe, you're in survival mode," said Brad Guzan, the American who was in goal for the Villans in Miazga's debut. "You're out of your comfort zone. You have to fight and scrap for everything. You have to battle. Being an American in Europe's not easy and so when guys are over there and they run into a rough patch, it's always interesting how they respond."

Miazga was loaned to Vitesse on Aug. 31 and arrived four league games into the season.

He made his debut as a late sub in a Dutch Cup match Sept. 22 and got his first start Oct. 15 at Alkmaar in the Eredivisie. Miazga played in 23 league matches and 29 overall, and even scored a goal on Dec. 14 against fifth-tier Jodan Boys in the Dutch Cup.

Miazga made his national team debut on Nov. 13, 2015, as a second-half substitute in a World Cup qualifier against St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He played the second half on an exhibition at Puerto Rico the following May, then was not called in for the rest of coach Jurgen Klinsmann's reign.

If he had remained with the Red Bulls, he might have stayed in the national team player pool.

"There's always that what-if factor, but at the end of the day I made the decision I made and I'm glad that I'm doing it," Miazga said. "Everyone has their own journey. I'm on my journey right now, and I'm very happy with how it's going, my development as a person, as a player. I can't ask for anything better, and I'm very happy challenging myself in Europe at the next level."

Chelsea is likely to loan him out again for 2017-18.

"He continues to grow physically." Arena said. "I think one day he can be a player at Chelsea."

The U.S. has played Ghana three times — all in the World Cup. The Americans were eliminated with losses to the Black Stars in the 2006 group stage and the second round four years later, then won their 2014 opener in Brazil.

"I still have nightmares from the 2006 World Cup thinking of Stephen Appiah and Michael Essien," said Arena, fired after the 2006 loss only to return last November.

Appiah, who scored the tiebreaking goal on a penalty kick in first-half stoppage time, is now the Black Stars' technical coordinator.

"I'm going to choke him when I see him," Arena said with a smirk.

Notes: Geno Auriemma, who has coached Connecticut to 11 NCAA women's basketball titles, is expected at the game. He was a women's basketball assistant at Virginia in the 1980s, when Arena led the men's soccer program. "We started together as young punky coaches," Arena said, "and we knew it all back then. Imagine now how much we know. So we've shared a lot of ideas about coaching over the years. He's arguably the most successful coach in the history of sport."

          En el 2013, los guardiamarinas de la Escuela Naval reemplazaron la travesía a bordo de la Fragata Libertad por un viaje en ómnibus   
El 2013 no será un buen año para los guardiamarinas de la promoción 142 de la Escuela Naval Militar. Es que –tal como trascendió a fines de la semana pasada- por primera vez en décadas, los oficiales recién recibidos no realizarán su viaje de instrucción en la ARA Fragata Libertad.

La decisión fue tomada, de acuerdo a información proveniente de la Armada, por la falta de presupuesto. Incluso cuando se ofreció hacer un recorrido más corto sin pasar por puertos “peligrosos”, la escasez de dinero fue determinante para su suspensión. Mientras tanto, el 5 de mayo de 2013, la Jefatura de Gabinete de Ministros anunciaba un aumento del gasto en publicidad oficial del orden de los $ 439.000.000 para el año 2013, los cuales reforzaron los $ 753.000.000 previstos en el presupuesto.
Facsímil de licitación de la Armada para el viaje de guardiamarinas
Sin embargo, de acuerdo con documentos a los que se accedio, los Guardiamarinas, este año,  ya tuvieron “su viaje”. Aunque no lo realizaron en el exterior, sino más bien a los principales destinos turísticos del país, en lo que sería casi un viaje de egresados, en el que se incluyó la visita a bodegas mendocinas, actividades de rafting y paseos en el Cerro Catedral o las Cataratas del Iguazú, todo en el marco de un plan denominado “Viaje de Conocimientos Profundos por la República Argentina”.
El itinerario en cuestión, que por lo menos en el 2013 será el único que tendrán los oficiales y que nada tiene que ver con el de instrucción en la Fragata, tuvo su inicio el 5 de febrero pasado en la provincia Mendoza; luego, se prolongó el 10 en la provincia de San Juan; continúo el 14 de ese mes en la provincia de Tucumán; siguió el 20 de febrero por la provincia de Salta; recaló el 26 en la provincia de Misiones y concluyó el 6 de marzo en la provincia de Río Negro (ver el final del artículo para acceder al itinerario completo contratado).
Todo surgió a fines del 2011, a partir de un discurso de la presidente Cristina Fernández en la ceremonia de graduación de oficiales de las Fuerzas Armadas. Allí la mandataria recomendó a los subtenientes, guardiamarinas y alféreces que “pudieran recorrer la totalidad del país” con el fin de conocer la “Argentina Profunda”. Sugirió, de hecho, la introducción de una nueva modalidad, “después que los cadetes se hayan graduado, independientemente de los planes de estudio que tengan que continuar”.

La Presidente dijo: “Uno de los principales problemas que hemos tenido a lo largo de nuestra historia ha sido no conocernos profundamente; o conocernos a través de lo que decían otros sobre nosotros”. Y concluyó: “Hay que conocer a nuestra gente, mirarla a los ojos. Estoy segura que así va a ser mucho más fácil defender a nuestro país, porque nos vamos a sentir orgullosos de él”.
Adjudicación de la Licitación Pública 5/2012 a Plusmar
Tras estos dichos y considerando el deseo presidencial como una orden, la Armada, se dispuso la creación del denominado “Viaje de Conocimientos Profundos por la República Argentina”. La marina llamó a dos licitaciones para realizar el viaje en el 2013 (tramo centro norte del país, y sur), ganando la firma Transportes Automotores Plusmar SA, quien para ambas compulsas (Licitaciones N° 05/12 y 12/12), cotizó el viaje de 75 personas en $631.100 pesos ($459.500 y  $171.600) -ver adjudicación de la licitación 5/2012 en el jpg adjunto-.
Entre esas 75 personas, formaron parte del contingente 50 hombres y 18 mujeres de la última promoción de la Escuela Naval Militar, que en su mayoría nacieron del interior del país. Los acompañó un visitante de la Escuela Naval de Panamá y el resto de la comitiva se completaba con 6 personas designadas por la marina.
Los 18 tramos licitados por la Escuela Naval Militar para el “viaje de conocimientos profundos”, incluyeron, por ejemplo, actividades de rafting, visita a la bodega Selentein y al Cristo Redentor  en Mendoza, y hasta el viaje al Parque Nacional Ischigualasto en San Juan, las Cataratas del Iguazú en Misiones o el Cerro Catedral, en Bariloche. Incluyendo "city tours" a varias ciudades capitales de provincias.

Todo muy lejos del significado que se podría dar sobre la “Argentina Profunda”, como sería la de internarse en el monte chaqueño o conocer la vida cotidiana de los pescadores patagónicos, por ejemplo.
Durante su excursión, los guardiamarinas visitaron sitios que siempre estuvieron a por lo menos 200 kilómetros de la playa más próxima. Lo más cerca que estuvieron de los vientos marinos fue Bariloche, a 205 km del Océano Pacífico. Y en San Juan y Misiones, las playas estaban a 623 km y 599 km, respectivamente

Es la segunda vez que se realiza este tipo de viaje, siendo la promoción 141 y a comienzos del 2012, los primeros que realizaron esa travesía. La 141, recordemos, es la misma promoción que estuvo “embargada” en Ghana por 77 días durante el año 2012.
De no haber sucedido aquel incidente, la fragata Libertad, hubiera recorrido durante cinco meses las aguas de Salvador de Bahía (Brasil), Paramaribo, (Guyana), La Guaira (Venezuela), Madeira (islas portuguesas en el Atlántico), Lisboa (territorio metropolitano de Portugal), Cádiz, Las Palmas y Canarias (España), Casablanca (Marruecos), Dakar (Senegal), Luanda (Angola), Walvi Bay (Namibia) y Cape Town (Sudáfrica).
Muchos tomaron con sorna la decisión de tan particular periplo. Al respecto, compararon el hecho de que marinos visiten el interior (lejos del mar, su hábitat) como que a los egresados de la Fuerza Aérea se les haga hacer una corta pasantía en las minas de Río Turbio o se enviara a los comandos del ejército a pasar una temporada a las oficinas de contabilidad de la Armada.

           Dwyer scores in debut as US beats Ghana 2-1    
(AP) — Dom Dwyer volleyed in a go-ahead goal in the 19th minute of his international debut, ran to the corner flag and did a double back flip that would make a gymnast proud. The goal made Dwyer and Leroux the first husband-and-wife couple to score for the United States, which beat Ghana 2-1 on Saturday in an exhibition ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Brad Guzan saved Asamoah Gyan's penalty kick in first-half stoppage time, and Kellyn Acosta added his first international goal in the 52nd minute on a low free kick that bounced in. Gyan curled a free kick just under the crossbar in the 60th, leaving the final 2-1 — matching Ghana's victories that eliminated the U.S. from the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and the American win over the Black Stars at the 2014 tournament. Leroux, a 27-year-old forward from British Columbia, played for Canada at age 14 in the 2004 Under-19 Women's World Cup, became a star at UCLA and switched affiliation to the U.S. She has 35 goals in 75 international appearances and helped the Americans win a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics and the title at the 2015 Women's World Cup. Arena changed eight starters from his lineup in the June 11 World Cup qualifier at Mexico, retaining only Guzan, Acosta and Paul Arriola. Atop a 4-5-1 formation, Dwyer failed to take advantage of scoring chances in the 14th and 17th minutes, then broke through. "First 10 minutes or so, he looked a little nervous out there, but he got ahold of the game and did well," Arena said.

          Корабль Dragon (CRS-11) прилетел к МКС и доставил 4 спутника и научную аппаратуру NICER, MUSES, ROSA   

После двухдневного полета на борт МКС грузовой космический корабль Dragon (CRS-11) прибыл на орбитальный форпост и доставил 4 небольших наноспутника и научную аппаратуру для проведения астрофизического исследования, тестирования солнечных панелей, а также специальную платформу для крепления 4-х инструментов наблюдения за землей.

Корабль Dragon (CRS-11) прилетел к МКС и доставил 4 спутника и научную аппаратуру NICER, MUSES, ROSA

После двухдневного полета на борт МКС грузовой космический корабль Dragon (CRS-11) прибыл на орбитальный форпост и доставил 4 небольших наноспутника и научную аппаратуру для проведения астрофизического исследования, тестирования солнечных панелей, а также специальную платформу для крепления 4-х инструментов наблюдения за землей.

Приблизившись на безлопастное расстояние корабль был захвачен с помощью специальной роботизированной руки Canadarm2, с помощью которой после Dragon (CRS-11) был пристыкован к модулю Harmony.

Напомним, запуск Dragon (CRS-11) был выполнен 3 июня 2017 года, в 9:00 утра по восточному времени (21:07 по Гринвичу, 4 июня 00:07 по МСК/Киеву) из стартовой площадки Launch Complex 39A Космического центре имени Кеннеди с помощью ракеты-носителя Falcon 9 компании SpaceX. Подробно…

И так, когда Dragon (CRS-11) был на расстоянии около 33 футов (10 метров) от модуля МКС Destiny, члены экипажа 52-й экспедиции Джек Фишер и Пегги Уитсон, астронавты НАСА, управляли Canadarm2. Стыковка корабля с космической станцией было выполнено в 13:52 по Гринвичу (16:52 по Киеув/МСК).

В целом, Dragon останется в составе МКС до июля, затем он будет отстыкован. Спустя несколько часов, после того, как он отойдет на безлопастное расстояние от МКС, он включит двигатели и направится к Земле.

Еще через некоторое время, корабль распадется на части. Капсула, которая имеет тепловой экран, после вхождения единственная не сгорит в атмосфере. Она с помощью парашютов приземлится на воду в Тихом океане недалеко от Нижней Калифорнии.

Немного статистики
Прибытие 5 июня грузового корабля Dragon (CRS-11), ознаменовало 11-й полет к МКС кораблей семейства Dragon компании SpaceX. Также Dragon (CRS-11) стал 92-м грузовым кораблем, который пристыковался к космической станции с 1998 года. В целом, это 182-й космический корабль достигший МКС.

Подробно о грузе, доставленном на борт МКС

На борту космического корабля на Международную космическую станцию было доставлено около 2700 кг полезного груза, среди которого всего 240 занимает провизия, а остальное это материалы для научных исследований (1070 кг), оборудование для МКС (200 кг), оборудование для выхода в открытый космос (55 кг), разные компьютеры (25 кг).

На МКС было доставлено около 250 научных экспериментов и исследований, среди которых:

Rodent Research-5 (RR-5) – пятая серия исследований, которая проводится на грызунах. В этой серии экспериментов на грызунах в условиях гравитации будет испытываться препарат NELL-1, который способен как восстанавливать костную ткань, так и препятствовать дальнейшему снижению её плотности в условиях микрогравитации.
Потеря костной массы у космонавтов из-за микрогравитации - это хорошо известное последствие космического полета, которое тщательно контролируется НАСА, и в настоящее время противодействует режиму упражнений и питания на орбите.

Fruit Fly Lab-02 — серия исследований, которые будут способствовать лучшему изучению продолжительного влияния космической среды на сердце и сосуды, проводимое с использованием фруктовых дрозофил. Рождённые в космосе, живые дрозофилы будут возвращены на Землю спустя месяц для подробного анализа.

Список внешнего оборудование, которое было доставлено на МКС:

Neutron Star Interior Composition ExploreR (NICER) – аппаратура для проведения астрофизического исследования, которая будет крепиться с внешней стороны станции. NASA сообщает, что NICER будет измерять нейтронные звезды и впервые в мире испытает технологию, которая использует пульсары в качестве навигационных маяков.

Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA) / (развертываемые солнечные батареи) разработанные предприятием Deployable Space Systems of Santa Barbara (штат Калифорния) при поддержке ВВС США. Экспериментальный матрица массив представляет собой новый тип энергогенерирующих солнечных панелей, который легко разворачивается, делая его более компактным, чем жесткие конструкции, летающие в настоящее время на спутниках.

Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES)— внешняя платформа для размещения одновременно до четырех различных инструментов наблюдения/ мониторинга за Землёй. Платформа обеспечивает электроснабжение и передачу данных для каждого из инструментов, а её расположение позволяет менять, обновлять и обслуживать инструменты с помощью имеющихся на станции манипуляторов. Масса платформы — 305 кг. В качестве первого инструмента для наблюдения за землей станет, который разместиться на этой платформе, станет многоканальный видеоспектрометр DESIS, разработанный Германским центром авиации и космонавтики. Инструмент DESIS будет использоваться для наблюдения за изменениями в экосистемах планеты, состоянием лесов и сельскохозяйственных земель.

Кроме того, на борт МКС было доставлено четыре небольших космических аппарата: Bird B (BRAC Onnesha), Bird G (GhanaSat 1, ANUSAT 1), Bird M (Mazaalai, NUMSAT 1), Bird N (EduSat 1). Эти космические аппараты созданы в образовательных целях японским Технологическим институтом Кюсю (KIT) в качестве совместного проекта Global Multi-Nation Birds Satellite, который является трансграничным междисциплинарным спутниковым проектом для стран, не являющихся космическими странами, поддерживаемых Японией.

          USA Men Take Down Ghana in 2-1 2017 Friendly Victory   

The United States men's national team earned 2-1 win over Ghana in Saturday's international friendly at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.     

While these squads have battled three times in the World Cup, neither side produced its best lineup in this exhibition. The Americans were preparing for the Gold Cup, leaving some of their key MLS and European-based stars to rest.

However, the less experienced lineup came through.

In the 19th minute, Dom Dwyer scored the game's first goal in his first appearance with the national team, and he showcased his physicality and aggressiveness throughout the contest.

Ives Galarcep of Goal.com liked what he saw:

Kellyn Acosta was another star against Ghana with his quality passing, and his score off a free kick in the 52nd minute made the difference in the victory.

Asamoah Gyan did his best to lift Ghana past the Americans, but his one goal in the 60th minute wasn't enough.

The rainy weather didn't slow down the Americans early, as the squad appeared to be in total control in the early going.

Not only did the midfield do a good job of controlling possession, but the team developed several quality chances for striker Dwyer up front.

After a few missed opportunities, the 26-year-old finally came through on this volley:

His wife and fellow U.S. soccer star Sydney Leroux Dwyer was probably the most excited, but she wasn't alone:

This score held until halftime, with Ghana getting only a few extended possessions in the final third. The best opportunity came right before intermission when a bad tackle by Jorge Villafana in the box led to a penalty kick.

Brad Guzan saved the penalty shot from Gyan that would have evened the match:

Both sides showcased a better effort on set pieces in the second half.

The Americans doubled their lead after Kelyn Rowe was taken down just outside the box. Acosta made it count by curling a free kick around the wall and into the net:

ESPN FC summed up the action:

Ghana wasn't ready to give up, though, and the squad earned its own free kick not long after.

Gyan made up for his earlier miss, cutting the score to 2-1.

While the last half-hour of the match featured a few close opportunities from each team, neither was able to get another goal on the scoresheet. Goalkeeper Brad Guzan and the back four held their ground as the home team held on for the win.

The next stop for the United States is the Gold Cup as the squad battles for supremacy of North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Things will kick off with a match against Panama next Saturday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, followed by contests against fellow group members Martinique and Nicaragua on July 12 and July 15, respectively.

Ghana will continue preparing for its next World Cup qualifying match in September.

          New York: Human Rights Watch Film Festival   

As an independent international organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) investigates human rights abuses through rigorous research and publicizes evidence based findings widely through video and print channels. Through newsletters, reports, seminars, films and videos HRW exerts pressure on policy maker and institutions to rectify human rights violations and to develop mechanisms to prevent current and future abuses. As an independent international organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) organizes conferences and film festivals and collaborates with other organizations with similar goals. Combined with effective lobbying HRW has an excellent record of achieving its goal of strategic information distribution and change. Supported by a staff of professionals including lawyers, researchers, area specialists and journalists to name but a few, HRW covers a broad range of new and emerging human rights problems as reflected in reports and dispatches released on a regular basis.

Some of the recent  HRW reports included: Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage (Taiwan), European Parliament Demands Investigation Into Ethiopia Killings, LGBTI Refugees (Canada), Hungary’s Human Rights, Ratification of Mercury Convention (Ghana),  Court Backs  Down on Waste Protesters (Lebanon), Moves to Curb LGBT  Bullying (Japan),Death by Chemicals (Syria), Discrimination against  LGBT students (Philippines),  No Country for Human Rights Activists (Vietnam), Impunity in Domestic Violence Cases in Boraima (Brazil), Red  Card – Exploitation of Construction Workers on World Cup Sites, Russia), Threats to Free Media Expression’s (Kenya), Discrimination Against Women in Job Market (Iran) and Ensuring   Access to Pain Treatment (Guatemala).

The Human Rights Watch Film Festival has been circulating since January in several US and European cities and will be held after New York in Sidney. Some features of the fest can also be accessed through Mubi, an online streaming platform. HRWFF has an excellent professional reputation and audience acclaim due to the cinematic and narrative quality of most films selected and the thematic relevance and factual basis of virtually all films. The selection for the 28thedition of the Human Rights Watch Film festival (HRWFF) held from June 9-18 at the venues of the co-presenters Film Society of Lincoln Center and the IFC Center reflected the broad thematic international issue orientation of HRW. Current concerns widely emphasized by the press and addressed by the documentaries selected include the international refugee crisis, the need for reforming the US criminal and police system, gender issues, infringement of the freedom of expression by constraining the press and the quest for accountability for past and present human rights violations by political and economic actors. As reflected in the documentaries shown and the activities of HRW there is a constant expansion of the realm of human rights and of the violations we observe as made apparent by global information flow. Equally important is the individual citizen’s growing opportunity to become involved and use social media to express opposition to human rights violations. In this year’s edition of the film festival a special emphasis was placed on activism, the involvement of individuals in human rights issues and the corrective impact their actions can have. A special panel “From Audience to Activist” discussed the power of citizen-produced social media and the challenges for those presenting the frequently repressed causes of human rights abuses.  In a related special event three documentaries were shown by  Pamela Yates unearthing the truth about  the genocide of indigenous people in Guatemala by the army and documenting the prosecution of former general and president  Efrain Rios Mott for this crime.

 

Home Truth, April Hayes and Katia Maguire, 2017 ,USA    

The film depicts a nine year struggle for justice by Jessica who suffered the loss of her three young girls that were killed by their father. Home Truth provides a revealing account of her seemingly impossible quest for accountability. Jessica had a restraining order against her estranged husband and when he did not drop off the children when he was scheduled to do so the local police department refused act on the numerous calls and visits by Jessica to the police precinct during the ensuing evening and night. The following morning the father is shot and killed in a shoot-out with police unrelated to Jessica’s pleadings for police intervention. After the shoot out the police Jessica’s three girls are found murdered in the van of their father. Following the murder of her girls, Jessica sued the police department for their non-enforcement of a restraining order and continued her demand for justice through several appeals until her case reached the Supreme Court. The court ruled against Jessica, arguing that the police department was not accountable and had acted within its discretion. The film makers documented her years long struggle and the personal consequences for Jessica ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder to isolation, depression and suspension of family life with her son, her only remaining child. The ordeal of losing her children by reliving their fate through testifying in numerous trials was too much to bear for her. Yet she kept on going by filing a lawsuit against the U.S. with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. The U.S. Department of Justice testified that though sympathetic to Jessica they are not accountable for the action of local police departments and requested the case to be dismissed. After ruling for Jessica the Commission recommended that the enforcement of a restraining order be made mandatory and that better training for police in protecting victims of domestic violence be instituted. Under the Obama administration the first ever guidance on domestic violence were provided to all police departments and Jessica’s lawyer was appointed to a senior White House position.  As her Human Rights Hero award signifies, Jessica represents individuals who against all odds make an impact on an otherwise unresponsive legal system.

 

Complicit, Heather White and Lynn Zhangh, 2016   

As in Home Truth the documentary by White and Zhangh portrays the actions of an individual, Yi Yeting, in China fighting for justice and bringing the struggle from the grass roots level to the international stage. But whereas in the USA human rights violations can be discussed and brought to the attention of the media and the legal system, this approach is more difficult to implement in China because nongovernmental organizations and human rights lawyers are under increasing pressure, the legal system is insensitive and the press and social media are restrained.  Activists who report workers’ unrest are imprisoned and the Communist party does not condone advocacy of workers’ rights. Yi Yeting a former self-taught worker who was employed in electronic manufacturing and became an activist after he contracted leukemia faces powerful opponents ranging from Foxconn and its sub-contractors to the company’s international clients like Apple and Samsung. A growing number of mostly young factory workers fall sick from leukemia, cancer and other diseases because they were exposed to Benzene and N-Hexan in the electronics manufacturing process. These inexpensive   chemicals are in the solvents needed to clean electronic products like cell phones. Yi Yeting carried out undercover research to generate data showing the impact of these chemicals causing occupational diseases. It was difficult to access evidence since manufacturers bribed the hospital’s health departments to withhold data. Also there is great resistance by governmental agencies in China, local manufacturers and buyers like Apple and Samsung to act on the revealed health issues. China has not signed the International Benzene Convention of 1972 and depends on the export of products from its rapidly expanding high tech electronics sector that produces 90% of the world’s computers and 70% of all cell phones. Foxconn and its subcontractors are the primary suppliers to Apple of cell phones and other products. According to Complicit Foxconn is only paid $5 for each cell phone. By selling cell phones and other electronic products made in China   Apple generates a large amount of profit through Chinese factory labor and the diseases they contract by exposure to chemicals. Governmental agencies do not act to remedy the health problem and Apple denies that these chemicals have been used by its manufacturer in China. But even if they have been replaced by other chemicals Apple and Foxconn will not reveal which chemicals because the companies consider that a trade secret.

 

Nobody Speak: Trial of the Free Press, Brian Knappenberger, 2017

This stunning documentary is probably the most timely selection of this year’s program because of the current constant high level presentation of news as being fake and the dissemination of that view in the public and the further decline of the trust in communication at large and the press in particular. We observe a movement towards one dimensional communication and the attempt to systematically repress views which are alternative to what is held by governing policy makers. Freedom to express oneself without constraints on the individual and media level is one of the most important human rights and as shown in Orwell’s 1984 it is fundamental for the open society. Its abridgement is a condition for the movement towards an authoritarian state. Nobody Speaks presents two cases where freedom of the press and the first amendment are challenged by the billionaire Peter Thiel who successfully closed down the online tabloid Gawker. Thiel funded a successful lawsuit by Hulk Hogan against Gawker for publishing part of a sex tape depicting Hogan. Thiel was motivated to terminate Gawker because the tabloid had ousted him in past years as a homosexual. The second billionaire silencing a critical voice was casino mogul Sheldon Adelson who bought Nevada’s biggest independent newspaper the Las Vegas Review in 2015. A former columnist of this paper had been sued by Adelson for revealing that Adelson vending machine investments tied him to organized crime. Thiel and Adelson are strong supporters of the Trump presidency.  As the title of the documentary Nobody Speaks suggests, silencing the media by closing them down or preventing their critical articulation of controversial issues undermines the democratic order.

          Ghanaan Psychiatrist On French Street Violence   

(seminar video excerpt translation transcript) „To understand the current woes of France you have to understand Napoleon. Napoleon was Europe‘s military answer to the establishment of Unitedstates with the congenital error of slavery. Napoleon understood that it was not a new level of independence, but a historical step back which took the Christian world from enslaving others to enslaving itself. As a result, he tried to lead Europe for a historical alternative. After several hinge battles, Napoleon was defeated by the transatlantic entanglement of Britain, and Europe fell back on colonialism, but not without a few significant changes.“

          Logging Activity Adversely Impacts Primate Diversity and Density in the Kwabre Rainforest of Ghana   
Knowledge on the impacts of logging activity on inhabitant primate species in Kwabre Rainforest, Ghana, is vital for the development of a comprehensive conservation and management plan. With this background, primate density and diversity were recorded along line transects in logged and unlogged areas (strata) to assess the impact of logging activity on these parameters. Six distinct primate species were confirmed including Roloway monkey (Cercopithecus roloway, listed as endangered in the IUCN List of Threatened Species), white-naped mangabey (Cercocebus lunulatus, vulnerable), and Geoffroy’s black-and-white colobus (Colobus vellerosus, vulnerable). There was a significant difference (Mann-Whitney test: , ) in primate encounter rates between the logged and unlogged strata with higher species diversity in unlogged stratum () compared to the logged stratum (). Regression analysis indicated a significant effect (, ) of logging on primate encounter rates. Our results suggest that logging activity can alter composition of primate communities. One option to forestall further forest degradation and its adverse effects on primates would be to grant the Kwabre Rainforest protected area status under Ghanaian law and manage it under an integrated conservation plan that includes neighbouring Ankasa Conservation Area in Ghana and Tanoé Forest in Cote d’Ivoire.
          Environmental Determinants Influencing Fish Community Structure and Diversity in Two Distinct Seasons among Wetlands of Northern Region (Ghana)   
Fish community structure was assessed in six wetlands using cast nets, to correlate with environmental variables with diversity and distribution patterns, from 2010 to 2012. A total of 2,239 individuals belonging to 44 species and 1,938 individuals belonging to 40 species were sampled in the dry and wet seasons. Mochokid and Mormyrid families dominated fish community and constituted 14.8%, respectively, followed by Alestids (12.9%) and Chlariids (11.1%). Rarer taxons were centropomids, channids, malapteruds, and oesteoglossids and represented 1.9%, respectively. Overall, CPUE per net did not vary significantly (Tukey HSD test, ) in the dry and wet seasons. Wuntori marsh consistently showed dominance in mean monthly CPUE per net (dry = ; wet = seasons), while Bunglung constructed wetland was the least recorded (dry = ; wet = seasons). Fish diversity and richness differed significantly (, ) among seasons. Environmental disturbances were season-specific and did not differ significantly (, , ) among sites. A DCA ordination explained 69% variability in fish distribution patterns, while PCA showed that 81.8% of nitrate-nitrogen, phosphate, and grazing intensity on axis 1 and conductivity, temperature, and turbidity on axis 2 influenced fish community structure. Wetland conservation must be promoted to sustain fish abundance and overall ecosystem stability.

          México derrota 2 a 1 a Paraguay    

México venció hoy a Paraguay 2-1 con una selección alternativa a la que juega la Copa Confederaciones y se declaró listo para defender a partir del próximo jueves el título de la Copa de Oro de fútbol.

En el último encuentro amistoso previo al certamen de la Concacaf, los mexicanos mostraron mejoría y con un buen desempeño en el primer tiempo se impusieron. Rodolfo Pizarro (m.19) y Elías Hernández (m.26) convirtieron por los ganadores y Antonio Bareiro (m.47) descontó por los paraguayos.

Después de las primeras escaramuzas en las que ninguno de los dos cuadros se hizo daño, México se adueñó de la pelota y comenzó a inquietar a la defensa paraguaya, vencida en el minuto 19 cuando, tras una falla de Orbelín Pineda con todo a favor, Rodolfo Pizarro rescató un rebote y puso el 1-0 con un derechazo a segundo poste.

México mostró mejor fútbol que en el partido del pasado miércoles en el que superó 1-0 a Ghana; en el 26 amplió la ventaja con un penalti bien cobrado por Hernández, quien después de anotar, tuvo dos llegadas más, en el 17 a pase de Jesús Gallardo, y en el 41, pero sus ataques fueron detenidos por el portero Antony Silva.

Cuando estaba a punto de expirar el primer tiempo, Paraguay descontó con un gol de cabeza de Bareiro, quien recuperó un disparo estrellado en el travesaño y convirtió el primer gol de los sudamericanos.

En la segunda mitad, los paraguayos del entrenador Francisco Arce comenzaron mejor y dominaron las acciones en la mitad de la cancha hasta que cerca del minuto 20, México recuperó la pelota, aunque apenas se acercó a la puerta rival.

Aunque buscaron la portería contraria los rivales mostraron poco fútbol en la última parte del encuentro, de pocas emociones.

Con este partido, México terminó sus encuentros de preparación para la Copa de Oro en la que, con un equipo de segundo nivel, defenderá el título a partir del 9 de julio cuando enfrentará a El Salvador y luego lo hará ante Jamaica y Curazao. Paraguay reaparecerá en agosto contra Chile en la eliminatoria mundialista de la Conmebol.


          Estados Unidos vence a Ghana en amistoso   

Dom Dwyer anotó en su debut como seleccionado y se une a Sydney Leroux como la primera pareja de marido y mujer en conseguir goles con la selección de Estados Unidos, que venció el sábado 2-1 a Ghana en un duelo de preparación para la Copa Oro.

El delantero inglés de 26 años que en marzo pasado obtuvo la ciudadanía estadounidense puso a Estados Unidos al frente a los 19 minutos con una espectacular volea.

Brad Guzan detuvo el penal de Asamoah Gyan en el tiempo agregado de la primera mitad y Kellyn Acosta logró su primer gol como seleccionado a los 52 minutos con un cobro de tiro libre justo a las afueras del área, que rebasó la barrera y superó al arquero Richard Ofori.

Gyan anotó por Ghana a los 60 minutos gracias a un tiro libre que superó a Guzan y pasó justo debajo del travesaño. Ofori realizó una sensacional atajada a los 66 minutos para impedir el tanto de Alejandro Bedoya a servicio de Jordan Morris.

El técnico de Estados Unidos, Bruce Arena, cambió a ocho titulares de su alineación que presentó para el duelo clasificatorio del 11 de junio contra México y solo Guzan, Acosta y Paul Arriola permanecieron en el once titular. El conjunto estadounidense jugó con siete titulares con 10 o menos partidos con la selección.

Dos de ellos realizaron su primera aparición. El mediocampista Kelyn Rowe fue titular y Kenny Saief, quien tuvo dos apariciones con Israel antes de decidir jugar con la selección de Estados Unidos, ingresó de cambio a los 71 minutos.

Estados Unidos tiene cuatro victorias y cuatro empates en los ocho partidos desde que Arena tomó el lugar de Jurgen Klinsmann en noviembre pasado. El primer periodo de Arena al frente de la selección estadounidense concluyó en 2006 luego de ocho años, cuando Ghana eliminó a Estados Unidos en la fase de grupos del Mundial.

          Baroque Threads: Studies in Immanence and Expressivity   
Introduction to a proposed collection of essays: Seeking to legitimate expressivity in a climate enamored of constructivist and conceptual poetics, I turn to modern and contemporary forms of baroque production in poetry and the visual arts. I examine a variety of intercultural texts, texts that are a mélange of European, African, indigenous and colonial sources. Some are multilingual hybrids. Some have been described as neo-baroque or neo-barroco. Some resist the siren song of global modernism and speak for a people whose identity has been repressed and dismissed as only marginal. Leading figures for my purposes are Nicolás Guillén, José Lezama Lima, and Aimé Césaire. Some of these texts bear traces of surrealism. Other texts that I engage are associated with continental North America: Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Langston Hughes. Each of these North American authors is multilingual. Each chose a life that engaged multiple cultures and venues. Hughes was both a world traveler and resident of Harlem. The polyphonic Pound notoriously chose exile in Italy, after periods of residency in England and France. Williams, whose first language was Spanish, worked as a pediatric doctor serving the mixed-race poor of Paterson. The work of these North American authors is representative of a modernist aesthetic that is both prior to and a source for the neo-barroco. The over-arching thesis of these studies is that an address to immanence will elucidate the expressivity that animates both modern and contemporary poetry. A secondary unifying purpose is that the Latin American and Caribbean poets that I engage require reading by North Americans who wish to keep abreast of post-colonial and contemporary world poetics. An emergent intercultural poetics will necessarily draw on these sources.

My work as a poet and scholar, like that of many of my peers, is intercultural. I pursue a way of reading in which translation is central. Among the titles that I produced as editor of O.ARS was a volume called Translations: Experiments in Reading. I might argue, reductively, that expressivity is immanent to translation. The translator will always and necessarily color the translation with hints of subjectivity. Similarly the reader of conceptual texts will envisage scenarios that yield some degree of subjective satisfaction.[1]The distance between the uncertainties generated by neo-baroque productions and post-language or post-avant work may be less prominent than some readers assume.

My first love is prosody; musical elements and sonic vistas seduce me. Reading aloud or silently, interiorized voicing follows the curve of the line. Many of the observations that populate my essays derive from a close reading of selected texts. In particular, the neo-barroco offers intricate models of multi-layered and sinuous engagement, perception, and performance. Performance, bearing a relation to but not imitative of traditional cadences, generates a poetry, that in its embrace of orality, eschews established measures that have the force of dictating or constraining the shape of the work, imposing meter or rhyme scheme. At the same time it must be recognized that rigorous formulae derived from conceptual principles can also force language to pour itself into predetermined channels or follow randomly generated rules. At this juncture I am thinking of Oulipo and the works of Jackson Mac Low or my translation of the Old English “Seafarer.”[2]

From a certain angle, “modern” and “baroque” are cognate terms. Think of Galileo, the instrument maker whose telescope extended the range of human perception and whose father was famous for his Baroque violins. Galileo was first among those to reduce the world to experimentally verified computations. The information economy began with his calculations. Unlike revivals of tribal arts designed to awaken alienated emotions, as may be found in Picasso’s use of African materials, the neo-barroco offers intricate models of multi-layered and sinuous engagement, perception and performance. Developments in response to modernism or to modernity itself (as opposed to the theory) and coeval with both modernity’s economic benefits and its alienating effects are prior to and enabling of the poetry that I have chosen to write about.

Here I offer a purely preliminary but theoretical construct. My purpose is to redeem the word “immanent” for use in a poetics of inquiry. Imagine that each known language exists on a plane of transcendent immediacy: French, Spanish, English, Mandarin, etc. These virtual constructs have empirical reflections subject to change. Virtual or immanent planes are independent of such empirical reflections. The reflections themselves are clouds with energies and integrities derived from physical processes unique to their plane of actualization, if only the weather. To posit planetary cooling would not take us too far afield. It is to superpose another layer. To illustrate my explication of the distinction between immanent and empirical: readers of any particular written language are able to recognize a pure virtuality, which is wholly independent of normative practice. Grammar and phonology are immanent to speech or speaking, just as prosody is immanent to enunciation. Fernand de Saussure made a similar distinction between langueand parole. Further, in the model that I propose, as the physically embodied planes identified with each language come into contact with one another, sliding, rupture, penetration, and folding occur. These inter-lingual or trans-lingual contact zones are the sites of language transformation and the sites of poetry production. They are also sites of untranslatability. Emily Apter in Against World Literature: On the Politics of Untranslatability explores the role of the untranslatable in the history of philosophy. She writes, Alain Badiou’s “elevation of univocity over equivocation, of idea over language, of transparency over opacity, of transmission over hermeneutics, results in the subordination of translation to philosophy.”[3]An encrypted poetics: language comes before translation, and translation enables language. The matter is beyond explanation.

As a consequence, then, of having been captivated by inevitable aporias of untranslatability, I read with attention to multilingual connotations, negotiating expressions that mean differently in different languages, so-called “false friends.” Examples: Spanish, “vigilante” [watcher] means something different from English “vigilante.” Mistranslations have an inspirational value to the poet who stumbles upon false etymologies, constructing realms or reams or Rheims of cathedrals on shaky linguistic ground. Robert Duncan and Ronald Johnson did this.[4]More in keeping with my theme are passages in which multilingual connotations, drawing from a variety of cultural realms, convey something like a translucent sheen that is to some degree animate and felt as a breath within the lines of a poem. In Jay Wright’s The Presentable Art of Reading Absence, I am compelled by its different languages and levels of allusion.[5]

Asanti vocabulary merges with the Yoruba of Cuban Santería and the cante jondo of Federico Garcia Lorca,
¡O ritmo de semillas secas!
That would stir the salutary
orientation of a crystal rug,
a kente cloth and a dancing kilt. (55)
The first line immediately above is from Lorca’s “Son de negros en Cuba.” Wright has lived in the various lands from which he has borrowed the languages of the poem, Ghana, Germany and Scotland, as well as his native New Mexico. His is an American Baroque. At the limits of his craft he seeks absence. He walks away. The “fugitive force” to which he refers in the first selection above, is a plane of immanence, a plane of melancholy and loss. His objective is to cross from the here and now of meditation and pilgrimage into silence.

If immanence is independent of empirical subjects, then "composition” is “performance” (a processural actualization not adhering to a predetermined paradigm). One is left at the threshold of insubstantial realms howsoever transcendence may be postulated.  In the case of poetry, the "language" employed has both a virtual and an expressivist dimension. To elaborate further: I point to “Immanent Occasions,” a blog where I post thoughts on “immanence” like those that I am sharing now.[6]Suddenly it appears that the truly problematic term in the phrase “immanent occasions” may be “occasions,” not “immanent.” I have so far already been flirting with a concept of immanence derived from the work of Giles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Let me clarify that before turning to “occasions.”

In a brief essay on immanence Deleuze writes, “The transcendent is not the transcendental. Were it not for consciousness, the transcendental field would be defined as a pure plane of immanence.”[7]The distinction between “transcendental” and “transcendent” needs to be dwelt upon. Transcendental entities be they “souls,” “gods” or mathematical expressions, clutter the mind with multiple forms of imputed consciousness, useful perhaps to a sophist. For empirical purposes, I prefer Nathaniel Mackey’s gnosticism. In Anuncio’s Last Love Song, Mackey refers to “paper” as “wood’s pressed immanence.”[8] A plane of immanence is always virtual, Deleuze writes, and then he continues, “Absolute immanence is in itself; it is not in something, or to something: it does not depend on an object or belong to a subject.” Immanence has a life and its life is found not in moments that happen to collide or build upon one another. It exists between moments and “offers the immensity of an empty space where one sees the event yet to come and already happened, in the absolute of an immediate consciousness” (29). “Paper” in Mackey’s poem is subsequent to virtual rings that circle like halos and are likened to pearls, a gnostic image for the soul. His lines require context:
                                                                        Soul
                                                                                    and
                                    Self’s lyric digest. Circling round our
                        heads went rings of paper, wood’s pressed
                                    immanence, pearls we cut our teeth on,
                                                                                    strung,
                                    string broken, let’s go …
Comments on the unwinding of Mackey’s baroque syntax, notes sustained for many bars on a  singular horn, further implicates immanence as transcendent to the page, an extended modality beyond reading’s suggestions.

“Occasions,” as I employ the term in the title of my blog, exist between “moments” of perception. Here are glimpses of virtualities that are not time-bound. In that usage of “occasions,” I intend to indicate a plane of consistency populated by multiple moments of perception. Another source for this stance is Robert Creeley who writes of “glimmers” on the edge of consciousness. The immanent plane, is decidedly only one of many plateaus, in this case a liminal presence, existing as an “in-between,” like the in-between that exists when a layer of paint forms a virtual machine with a layer of canvas, one of Deleuze’s many machinic assemblages. The relation between the two layers: the painting and the canvas, is not one of dependency or contact, but a perception of a transcendent value that is neither subject to nor dependent on the material presence of either layer. The distributed force produces a singularity.

When my daughter was five she had a long-distance telephone conversation with an eight-year-old Inupiaq girl who lived then in Point Hope Alaska. The subject, Disneyland. Their conversation gave glimpses of a plane of immanence, manifested as giggles and producing a sensation of uncontaminated joy. Apparently the immanent does not depend on pragmatic or empirical considerations. How does one get to Disneyland? Their bliss was such a singularity as understood by Deleuze.[9] A singularity is a virtual construct that may be contrasted with individuation or the coming into self-understanding of an individual. A singularity has transcendent properties, overarching qualities that form a plane of consistency, unlinked or de-linked from historical vectors.

Deleuze concludes his meditation on immanence with this analogy: as is the case with small children, immanence is “pure power and even bliss” (30). It is distinct from individuation, which is a result of empirical experience. It exists only in those moments when the plane of immanence opens upon and is the equivalent of a transcendental field. A virtual field of this order is neither momentary as an epiphany nor eternal. It is and is separate or independent from consciousness. The understanding presented here allows a de-individualized display of affect and that display is neither prior to nor after language.  

Displays of affect often reside in the music of intercultural texts, where the resources of multiple languages and their varied imaginaries are in play, even when most incommensurable. The virtual may lie in the time signature while the empirical is a matter of performance. Other transformations of an intercultural order follow upon contact between different peoples, seeding the inception of new or emergent subjectivities. Nations or nationalities too, after the injustice of slavery, for instance, can be said to produce emergent subjectivities that can be likened to intercultural singularities. Identities such as American, Cuban, or Ojibway have intercultural or translingual characteristics due to the varieties of ways in which different people interact with one another and influence one another. The immanent does not depend on pragmatic or empirical factors. A perception of emergent subjectivity constitutes what is for Deleuze a singularity.[10]

A singularity is a virtual construct that may be contrasted with individuation or the coming into self-understanding of an individual. A singularity has immanent properties, overarching qualities that form a plane of consistency, unlinked or de-linked from historical vectors. A community possessing a mindfulness composed of identifiable characteristics is such a singularity. Mestizo or criollo (creole) might indicate broad characteristics applicable to mixed race communities. Cubanidad is a more narrowly distinctive quality associated with an identifiable population. Such singularities, almost instinctive in their force, can form a cross-weave with other singularities or planes of immanence. There are mestizo populations of an African European origin who are Cubans. And there are also criollo populations that owe their origins to intercultural marriages but whose African elements have been suppressed as a result of adapting to largely European values. These divisions do not necessarily align with skin color. An economic or class-based association is likely to be more determinative than skin color in such circumstances. I refer here to the Caribbean, not continental North America, where racism seems still to be virulent.[11]For North American tourists, the intercultural kaleidoscope of differently mixed peoples in the Caribbean is only a footnote to an island vacation. The work of Nicholás Guillén and that of José Lezama Lima is indicative of very different singularities. Each poet is associated with different constructs of creolité in which the weight of Africanicity varies. In the case of Williams an undefinable creole singularity haunts his writing and is sometimes glimpsed as embodied grotesqueries. In the course of these studies I use “subjectivity” to denominate the empirical or performative aspect that is tangent to or parallel with the Deleuzian concept of singularity. This notion of vectors along which such forces travel is of course, Spinozistic. There’s no god but the good.

The works under discussion in these essays enact or perform subjectivity differently. I understand “subjectivity” as Immanuel Kant and Jean-François Lyotard have, as the site of aesthetic judgments, not a discursive, argumentative or ego-involved intelligence. Deleuze’s concept of folded forms includes an analysis of the direction and duration of flow. In baroque painting light becomes fluid. Watery and mirrored surfaces refract and bend perception. The transformative nature of perception is central to my reading of both modernist and postmodernist work from the Americas. The neo-baroque represents a historical shift valuing music over concept, irony over syllogism.

My emphasis on expressivity is a supplement to the main stream of modernist studies where a history of image-based innovations yields to a constructivist impulse, designed to free the work of the artist’s fingerprints. The porcelain surface of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain is emblematic. James Joyce, in his Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, at least presents the creator as paring his fingernails. Irony is the modernist mode of expression par excellence. Deadpan is valued over affect. That history, shunning expressivist aesthetics, moves from a series of avant-garde innovations (Pound or Picasso) through various forms of constructivism to a language-centered or a post-avant aesthetic that identifies itself as purely conceptual. The centrality of poetic methods that descend from the modernist works of Pound and Williams is in any case self-evident but requires interrogation, especially in relation to expressivist values that exist in critical tension with the pure products of the imagination.[12]  What role has prosody played in this history? My translations of marginally recognized modernists such as Yvan Goll or Blaise Cendrars seeks to fold  their collage-based and surrealist works within the larger mantel of expressivity.

Machines made out of words, reputedly, do not have souls. For Deleuze and Guattari, machinic couplings or assemblages are conduits for lines of force, as if inhabited. In my reading machines allow blurred or even etherealized perceptions of immanent constructs.[13] Modernism as an identifiable style of composition began with an embrace of futuristic machines. For Wyndham Lewis, the soul is an elaborate artifice, “Deadness is the first condition of art,” he wrote in Time and the Western Man.[14] On the hook of a similar enthusiasm, Williams in his introduction to The Wedge, proclaimed that poems are machines made of words. Can such assertions find a balancing point, or are they purely opposed to expressivity? Gertrude Stein wrote that souls do not interest him, meaning Picasso. Dada in its anti-art posture also, often builds abstract machines, Tzara and Picabia, especially. Sex machines. Alternative machines with diagrammatic parts. Machines populate the expressionistic landscape of Metropolis, factory labor producing drones even as for entertainment purposes a robotic Maria emerges from the oyster shell, sporting a lunar tiara. Do not Jean Tinguely’s animate machines have souls?

“Modernization,” using the term to signify an unavoidable trope and history, has an alienating relation to expressivity and a troubling history with respect to labor, the work force often being an intercultural as well as an exploited mass. “Modernism” has been nominally understood in relation to worthy goals for productivity, efficiency and scale, and therefore envied in newly established postcolonial societies. Poets and anthropologists of the Caribbean have also been compelled to address a history of production associated with slavery. In an account that I find corrosive, the cane factory for Fernando Ortiz is a site of purification as the molasses produced by black people in the fields is transformed into a purely white, crystalline sugar, providing a model for race and the emergence of mixed race culture where black and white, in their mutually shared cubanidad worked to the same economic end. More starkly, in keeping with the reality of economic slavery, a father in a surreptitiously stolen balloon flies over a cane field in Haiti and jumps from the basket to his death while his son on the ground below channels Boukman hypnotically. Edwige Dantecat’s story “A Wall of Fire Rising” (cited here from Krick? Krack!) captures the despair of postcolonial economic slavery, citing the bewilderment of contemporary surviving children who mouth incomprehensible mantras promising freedom.

War machines offer differently inflected intercultural perspectives. Dada willingly constructed alternative machines as it engaged in political and antiwar protest. During the 1920s, works by El Lissitsky and Malevich, promoting art for the sake of revolution in a newly industrializing Russia, hung alongside socially disruptive works like those of Kurt Schwitters or Hannah Hoch, Hoch’s collages especially illustrating transformative, multicultural affinities. Following such endearing chaos, as Dada provides, with its performative energies of a deeply expressivist order, it remained to Surrealism to redeem subjective affinities in the realm of poetry, freeing rather than further erasing affect. The influence of surrealism on the art of both Aimé Césaire and José Lezama Lima testifies, in each case very differently, to expressivist urgencies that open new language channels and possibilities of “making it new.” The archaic and the political are two sides of a coin, not only for Pound, who used the phrase in his Cantos but also for modern and contemporary poets in search of coherence, howsoever impossible of attainment that goal may be.

Machines are not themselves necessarily mechanical They are constructs that allow different modes of conjunction or continuity between parts of different orders. My polarities of the expressivist and the constructivist may themselves be only a word machine, generating an oscillating force field, designed to bring forward a new angle of vision.[15]  An expressivist work, engaged as it is with subjectivity, often displays the most energetic aspects of baroque forms, but expressivism doesn’t rule out the practices of direct statement. Langston Hughes, with his fluency in several languages, is perhaps the most intercultural North American poet of his time, having a wide influence in Latin America because of the many translations of his work into Spanish. The work of Jay Wright has a similar intercultural balance and displays more baroque properties than does Hughes’s. His work most nearly incorporates the range of inquiry that I pursue in this collection.

In their individual ways, Williams and Hughes contributed to the development of a “new world poetics,” a sadly unacknowledged brotherhood. Wiiliams’s poetics is profoundly intercultural, in Williams’s case incorporating his Caribbean heritage and speaking to projects like his In the American Grain, a study that draws on Spanish and French, as well as English sources. His incorporation of that material into his poetry and his translations from Spanish speak to compositional practices that are intercultural. Lyrics like “Danse Russe” respond with imaginal exuberance to grotesque reflections in a mirror. There are dwarfs and grotesqueries in Paterson similar to those that populate the Spanish Baroque. Hughes’s autobiography too is multicultural beginning with long residences in Mexico as a young man, followed by travels as a sailor and later as a poet invited to visit Russia and then as reporter for the Baltimore African American in Spain. As a result of visits to Cuba and Spain he took a particular lifelong interest in the works of Guillén and Jacques Roumain. He translated poems and plays by Federico Garcia Lorca, a figure of deep interest to Williams also.

Nonetheless, the proposed volume is not a survey of literary history. It is a collection of essays. Often I incorporate sideways leaps into art history. Henri Matisse, Wilfredo Lam, Francis Bacon, Robert Rauschenberg, and Ana Mendieta, for instance. Each uniquely registers the expressivist values that are central to my thought. I am especially responsive to transcultural and expressivist poetics on several fronts. I embrace the poetics of a polyphonic Pound, as well as the tangled webs of syntax found in the poets of the  Latin American neo-barroco: Eduardo Milan, José Kozer, and Roberto Echavarren.

[4]Duncan found poetic resources in relating ‘verse’ to “ploughing,” tracing the etymology of each word back to Greek forms. “It is a fanciful etymology, “verse” shares a root with “ploughing.” To demonstrate that, once words cease to be conventional, customary of taken for granted in their meanings, all things are set into motion, in the figure of ploughing, we see that prose and verse are two necessary movements in the one operation of writing. That here what we call ploughing of the field we also call poetry or our own operations in language. Writing that knows in every phase what it is doing.

[9]The concept of a “singularity” is central to the “Objectivist” strand of North American poetry, for instance, that of George Oppen, who seems to have posited a relationship between “singularity” and “numerousness” that may be similar to the immanent and empirical planes of Deleuze’s thought. Both Lyn Hejinian herself and Peter Nichols in comments on Hejinian’s work argue that the concept of “humanity” is something both confirmed and lost in a momentary glimmer associated with “the shipwreck” of the singular. Hejinian holds that “this is not a poetry of single moments, however—Oppen’s singularities may be impenetrable but they are not transcendent” qtd.

[12]Charles Altieri makes a similar use of the term “expressivist.” His use adumbrates my use of forclusion in these pages. “… an aesthetic approach to values requires an expressivist framework for making our fundamental assumptions.

This claim is consonant with the constructivist position Watten generally advocates in such books as Total Syntax. The logic here implies that there is no exterior position for either author or reader outside of the highly discontinuous unfolding of the poem, and yet the notion of such a position is immanent to the construction of the poem. The footnotes to this introduction so far are intended as a commentary on North American “language poetry,” in order to construct a plane adjacent or parallel to the intercultural poetics that I am elaborating, above the line, as it were.

[15]Deleuze illustrates my sense of “constructivism,” when he discusses multiplicities in relation to the “field of Immanence.” He argues that “Setting out a plane of immanence, tracing out a field of immanence, is something that all the authors I have worked with have done (even Kant—by denouncing any transcendent application of the syntheses of the imagination …) Abstractions explain nothing, they themselves have to be explained: there are no such things as universals, there’s nothing transcendent, no Unity, subject (or object), Reason: there are only processes, sometimes unifying subjectifying, rationalizing, but just processes all the same. These processes are at work in concrete “multiplicities,” multiplicity is the real element in which things happen. It’s multiplicities that fill the field of immanence, rather as tribes fill the desert without it ceasing to be a desert.” “On Philosophy,” in Negotiations, 1972-1990 tr. Martin Joughin (NY: Columbia, 1990): 145-46. See also p. 3 above where Deleuze’s use of “transcendent” and “transcendental” are discussed.

          Kidnapper Evans Can Organize His Jailbreak And Set Up New Gang To Unleash Terror On Nigerian People - Security Operatives Warns   
Sponsored Links

There are fears among security operatives that the notorious kidnap kingpin, Mr. Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka, Evans, who was arrested recently by the Police for coordinating several high-profile kidnappings and armed robbery could stage an escape from prison if remanded in prison custody.
It was learnt that should Evans be remanded in Prison, he would pose a security threat to the nation given his sophistication and network.
Top security agents, who spoke to SaturdayVanguard explained that since the Police were yet to trace all the monies and properties Evans acquired during his 20-year reign as a high profile kidnapper, his stay in prison would avail him the opportunity to reorganize himself and set up a new gang.
Again, the police are still investigating to nab his accomplices and may not be in a hurry to charge him to court now. They have a court order to keep him up to three months before he could face prosecution.
According to SaturdayVanguard that several high profile criminals, who made huge sums money before their arrest were treated preferentially by prison officials, who they alleged gave them easy access to cell phones and internet connections.
VIP treatment in prison custody
The source said: “High-profile criminals enjoy VIP treatments in prison custody because they have money. We have learned that these suspects usually pay the warders to be detained in cells that are classified as VIP, and they would have access to their phones as well as the internet. These suspects don’t usually feel like they are in prison custody because they enjoy unlimited access to visitors anytime.
“Since his money has not been recovered completely because we had information that he has hotels in Ghana and South Africa, it will be wrong to send him to prison.
He is also said to have auto spare parts outlets in Ghana and some other Africa countries. People working for him are numerous and the Police are yet to arrest all of them.
If he is remanded in prison with these assets unrecovered, Evans could rule any prison. Evans, can be in prison and easily recruit men outside, radicalise them, buy them arms and send them out for operations.
Evans can organise a jailbreak
‘’Evans could enjoy the security of the prison and unleash terror on the society. We have seen a lot of criminals like him and they have done same
“We have had several cases like that in the past. We had the case of Henry Chibueze, alias Vampire, who kidnapped and killed several persons and was arrested in 2015 by the Department of State Security Service, DSS. While in prison, Vampire sponsored several groups, who carried out kidnappings on his behalf.
Having raised enough money he staged an escape from the prison while he was being taken to court. Luckily for us, he was gunned down, a few weeks after his escape. There were also other cases in Abuja and Port Harcourt Rivers State, recently.
A suspect in Kuje Prison was identified as the mastermind of several fraud cases where he would send members of his syndicate to buy goods and pay with fake bank alerts.
“When members of the syndicate were arrested, they confessed that their leader was serving in Kuje Prison. One of the cases in Port Harcourt saw a detainee operating a massive kidnap gang. The kidnapper had organized several kidnappings before members of his gang were apprehended and he was exposed.” 

Death of policemen
Similarly, Police sources also intimated Saturday Vanguard that the Nnewi -born suspect who received millions of dollars as ransom from his victims after abducting and detaining them for months, was said to have given vivid details of how his gang carried out operations which led to the death of many policemen across the country.
This was after he denied being involved in such operations when asked by Saturday Vanguard during an interview. He only admitted taking part in just three bullion van robberies during his reign.  

Deadly operation in Oyo
However, sources said his story changed on June 26, 2017, when a Deputy Commissioner of Police currently serving at the Rivers State Police Command, Mr. Felix Vwamhi, contacted the Intelligence Response Team handling his case and informed them that while he served as the Area Commander in Charge of Oyo Town, Oyo State, in 2010, Evans and his gang members carried out multiple bank robberies.
He added that a few days after the operation, Evans, and members of his gang went to rob more other banks in Rivers and Abia States.
It was gathered that Evans, was caught on Close Circuit Camera, CCTV, stationed at one of the banks clutching an AK-47 rifle, after he and his group stormed the bank and two others, located at Oyo Junction, off Iwo Road.
He was said to have apprehended the branch manager of the bank immediately he gained access to the bank and forced him to lead him into the vault where large sums of money were carted away. It was learned that the gang stormed the bank from a village in Iwo Town, where they had camped a night before the operation. They invaded the bank at 10: am on May 20, 2017, after snatching three vehicles from the Oyo/ Road and abducting its occupants.
They were said to have attempted to move into Oyo Town where they intended to rob more banks, but they were stopped by Armoured Personnel Carriers.
Sources at the IRT disclosed that the Oyo Area Commander at that time secured the service of an informant based in Lagos State, adding that the CCTV at the bank was obtained.
The informant, who was said to have identified Evans, while he was seen stuffing bundles of dollars into a bag from the CCTV footage, warned that the gang had concluded plans to carry out more bank robberies in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, and Aba. Two days after that operation, Evans and his men were also sported in Port-Harcourt, where they raided some banks from where they moved to Aba and raided more banks.
Sharing of loot in Lagos
Saturday Vanguard gathered that Evans and other commanders in the group, who were identified as directors, shared their loot at a location in Lagos State.
Evans and other top members of the gang reportedly kept the foreign currencies stolen from the banks.
A few days after sharing their loot, a member of the gang, who specialized in opening bank security doors, was arrested at his residence in Ijesha, Lagos State.
He was shown the footage where he saw himself breaking one of the doors to the banks through the aid of the informant. His arrest soon led to the arrest of several members of their gang, but Evans, who was the police prime target, managed to escape to Ghana.
It was learned that while policemen from the Oyo Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, stormed Lagos, having gotten information that Evans was spotted in a nightclub, in Ikeja, he scaled the club’s fence, abandoned his vehicle and absconded.
Denies Godogodo
It was further gathered that following this revelation, the IRT confronted Evans with the claims that he may have worked with the late notorious armed robbery czar known as Abiodun Ogunjobi, a.k.a Godogodo, during his reign in the South West.
Godogodo was reputed to have killed over 50 policemen and snatched their rifles.
However, Evans reportedly admitted taking part in the 2010 Oyo bank robberies but denied ever working with Godogodo.
He explained that he did not know the names of all the people he worked with during his robbery escapades.
He said: “I don’t know all the people I carried out robbery operations with because I don’t share my contacts with everybody so that when they are caught, they won’t mention my name to the Police.
At the time we went for that Oyo robbery, my gang was made up of mainly Igbo boys and traders from Ladipo Spare Part Market. We were working mainly at Port-Harcourt and other parts of the South East, but it was one of our friends known as Paul, who brought us to Oyo for the bank robbery. They were the people who knew the terrain very well.
My friend Paul came with some Yoruba boys and we stayed in a village very close Oyo Town. I don’t know the name of that town, but in the morning before we went for the operation, we snatched three vehicles and we used them for the operation.
Before we got to the bank, we had some of our men close to monitor movements of security operatives around the bank. And they had strict instructions to take out any security operative that may stand on our way. I don’t know if any policeman was killed during the operation. I was just a driver. I wasn’t carrying any gun. We went to Port-Harcourt after the Oyo robbervans and his gang members carried out multiple bank robberies.
He added that a few days after the operation, Evans, and memy and the Yoruba boys didn’t follow us. ND was the person who brought the information on that operation, while Nwanaba, brought the Aba operation. We shared the Oyo robbery loot with the Yoruba boys there in Oyo State before we left for the East.
But, what we did in that operation was that every man should settle himself with what he got. After our Port-Harcourt and Aba operations, we came to Lagos and shared our loots at Ikeja area. Soon after, the police started arresting my gang members. I don’t know how they infiltrated our gang but I was forced to flee to Ghana.”

Obituary: Singer Gary DeCarlo, 75, has died after a battle with lung cancer. He was known for his vocals on the hit single "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye":

Mercury decided to release the song "Sweet Laura Lee" as a single from the recording session. Needing a B-side for the single, Leka, DeCarlo and Frausher revived a Glenwoods song they wrote called “Kiss Him Goodbye” and recorded it as "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” for the B-side. DeCarlo also played percussion on the song.

The song became a surprise hit when a DJ in Georgia played it and requests for the song flooded the station. The single made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in December, 1969.

The song was attributed to the band "Steam," although at the time there was no band with that name. The band seen on the cover of the single and that performed the song on a promotional video were hired for their image. The singer in the video was lip-synching DeCarlo’s lead vocal. The “fake” Steam band went on tour and performed live.

I didn't think the song was that old and more like it was from the 1970s. It just goes to show how fast time has gone.

Why are Republicans such cruel assholes?

Yet that’s surely not the whole story, because Obamacare isn’t the only social insurance program that does great good yet faces incessant right-wing attack. Food stamps, unemployment insurance, disability benefits all get the same treatment. Why?

As with Obamacare, this story began with a politically convenient lie — the pretense, going all the way back to Ronald Reagan, that social safety net programs just reward lazy people who don’t want to work. And we all know which people in particular were supposed to be on the take.

Now, this was never true, and in an era of rising inequality and declining traditional industries, some of the biggest beneficiaries of these safety net programs are members of the Trump-supporting white working class. But the modern G.O.P. basically consists of career apparatchiks who live in an intellectual bubble, and those Reagan-era stereotypes still dominate their picture of struggling Americans.

Or to put it another way, Republicans start from a sort of baseline of cruelty toward the less fortunate, of hostility toward anything that protects families against catastrophe.

Juan Martinez, the prosecuting attorney in the Jodi Arias case, is facing an ethics complaint.

Tammy Rose, a free-lance reporter who covered the Arias trial, filed a sworn statement with the ethics complaint.

Rose said she and Wood became friends while they were covering the trial's death-penalty phase in 2015.

They would car pool to the Maricopa County Courthouse and trade text messages through the day.

"She told me this shocking secret that I was – so shocked when she told me – that she said she was having an affair with Juan Martinez," Rose said in an interview from her Wisconsin home.

After the ethics complaint was filed, Rose told a sheriff's officer at her Wisconsin home that she had been harassed via text message and phone calls, according to a report filed by the Sheboygan County, Wis., Sheriff's Department.

          México ganó 2-1 a Paraguay   


En su segunda y última prueba previo a su debut en la Copa Oro, la Selección Mexicana se impone por marcador de 2-1 al combinado nacional de Paraguay.

La escuadra que comanda Luis Pompilio Páez logró su segundo triunfo al hilo al derrotar esta tarde-noche a los paraguayos tras ganarle antes a Ghana.

El triunfo para la escuadra tricolor comenzaba a gestarse a los 18 minutos del partido cuando Rodolfo Pizarro conectaba dentro del área para poner el 1-0.

Siendo mayormente dominador de las acciones una vez más el Tri pegaba, ahora desde los once pasos al minuto 26’ con un perfecto cobro de Elías Hernández, mismo elemento que se hizo presente en el marcador frente al combinado africano.

Antonio Barreiro realizaba el tanto que acercaba a los guaraníes con un cabezazo; sin embargo, al final el marcador se mantendría 2-1 en favor de los mexicanos.

México debutará en la Copa Oro del 09 de julio ante El Salvador.

          Pertama Lihat Drone, Apa yang Difikirkan Atok Tua ini?    
Seorang mukmin harus menyedari fungsi dirinya di dunia untuk ibadah kepada Allah semata. Kebahagiaan tertingginya di dunia sekiranya mampu melakukan ibadah kepada Allah sebaik-baiknya. Jika ada ibadah berpahala besar dan lebih dicintai Rabb-nya ia sangat semangat mengamalkannya. Misalnya ibadah haji dan umrah.
Seorang bapak tua dari desa desa pedalaman Ghana Afrika baru pertama kali melihat Drone dalam hidupnya.
Ia berkata ," Kalau seandainya drone ini menjadi besar , bolehkah ia membawaku ke Mekkah ?".
Hati orang tua sangat mulia. Dengan kepolosannya, saat melihat benda berteknologi canggih ini, pertama kali terucap adalah Kota Makkah.
Kerinduan kepada Makkah pasti mengisi hati setiap muslim. Di sana ada Ka’bah sebagai kiblat umat Islam. Keutamaan solat di Masjidil Haram yang Ka’bah berada di dalamnya, senilai 100 ribu kali ganda solat di masjid selainnya.
Kerinduan ini adalah buah dari doa Nabi Ibrahim ‘alaihis salam sehingga sampai pelusok dunia pun manusia merindukan kota Makkah. [Pierrevogel.de/voa-i]

La Albirroja prueba a México en Seattle

La selección mexicana que participará en la Copa Oro buscará este sábado en el estadio CenturyLink Field, de Seattle, su puesta a punto ante la selección de Paraguay en su segundo y último partido de preparación. Tras una primera prueba resuelta el jueves ante Ghana, en Houston, México seguirá analizando con qué jugadores podrá emprender el torneo de naciones de la Concacaf que se jugará del 7 al 26 de julio en Estados Unidos.

Sin una idea clara de juego debido a que los jugadores no han jugado juntos, México resolvió el partido ante Ghana con empuje y experiencia, pero ante Paraguay será diferente porque el combinado sudamericano representa un reto mayor. El estratega paraguayo Francisco Arce formó su representativo con jugadores de la Liga local, misma situación para el equipo mexicano que seguirá bajo el mando del colombiano Luis Pompilio Páez, quien habrá de reportar a su “jefe” Juan Carlos Osorio el comportamiento de los jugadores para ser tomados en cuenta para el primer partido de la Copa Oro.

El Tri no contará para este duelo con el portero Moisés Muñoz y el volante Jesús Dueñas, quienes salieron del partido ante Ghana debido a lesiones, uno en la cabeza y otro en la rodilla pero ninguno de gravedad y ya trabajan en su recuperación. Paraguay aprovechará el partido para darle juego a jugadores que posiblemente sean llamados en las próximas convocatorias para los juegos de la eliminatoria en la Conmebol.

Aunque todavía tiene opciones matemáticas, la situación de Paraguay es compleja en las eliminatorias del Mundial, pues ocupa el octavo puesto con 18 puntos, a 5 de la selección de Chile, que es cuarta y ocupa la última plaza de clasificación directa. Tras el partido, México viajará el domingo hacia San Diego donde cumplirá su semana de entrenamientos hasta que el 9 de julio inicie su participación ante El Salvador. El 13 jugará ante Jamaica en Denver y tres días después cerrará la fase de grupos contra Curazao en el Alamodome de San Antonio.

Los jugadores Edson Álvarez y Alejandro Mayorga, quienes ayudaron al Tricolor en la Copa Confederaciones, aunque no fueron registrados, continuarán con su labor especial en la Copa y se integrarán al equipo el martes al igual que el defensa Luis Reyes, quien fue el único registrado para ambas competiciones.

Probables Alineaciones:
México: Jesús Corona; Jesús Gallardo, Luis Rodríguez, César Montes, Hugo Ayala; Jorge Hernández, Jesús Molina, Rodolfo Pizarro; Elías Hernández, Orbelín Pineda y Alan Pulido. Entrenador: Luis Pompilio Páez.

Paraguay: Antony Silva; Alan Benítez, Juan Escobar, Luis Cardozo, Salustiano Candia; Antonio Bareiro, Cristian Riveros, Marcos Riveros, Óscar Romero; Santiago Salcedo y Néstor Camacho. Entrenador: Francisco Arce.

Estadio: CenturyLink Field de Seattle.

Hora: 20:30.

A cat I work with at UPS is a musician, a drummer matter a fact. In his car is pure gospel CDs except for one which is Common Finding Forever. I ask him if he ever heard of Lupe Fiasco which he hadn't. He was interested in what Mos Def was doing. I then asked him bout Nas and Estelle and he got open so I said I would make him a CD. I usually just compile a playlist and burn it but for the sake of hip-hop I, did this mix-tape. More time I just do the comps because doing a tracked mix tape can be a pregnant poodle. GarageBand drive me up 4 walls. Through God's grace and my diligence I was able to figure out Audacity where I recorded a file and labeled the sections where the songs segued and then exported them as mp3s. NICE. I'm a big advocate for Serato so this is the first mixtape I ever made using the 1 turntable/reverse input functionality. Lots a youth in my crew use Serato, but dem nuh know dem style ya. It ain't really nuttin 2 it, but you may feel like you going against the rules of turntablism. It takes skill and practice and in the future will save you money on acquiring a second turntable or servicing the one thats dead. That necessity led me to figure how to make this work. This mix is going out to everybody who still love hip-hop even though mad ish has changed in the music, the business, the culture and the tolerance.

          Serikali Yawataka Wataalam wa Mikataba Kuwa Wazalendo   
Na Jonas Kamaleki- MAELEZO
Wataalamu wa majadiliano ya mikataba wametakiwa kuweka maslahi ya Taifa mbele wanapoandaa mikataba ya kimataifa ili kulinda na kusimamia raslimali za nchi.

Wito huo umetolewa jana na Naibu Mwanasheria Mkuu wa Serikali, Gerson Mdemu wakati akifunga mafunzo ya maafisa waandamizi wa serikali za nchi tisa za kiafrika kuhusu majadaliano ya mikataba ya kibiashara ya kimataifa yaliyofanyika jijini Dar es Salaam.

Mdemu aliwasititiza washiriki wa mafunzo hayo kutumia ujuzi walioupata kwenye mafunzo hayo yaliyofanyika kwa majuma mawili kwa ajili ya maslahi ya nchi zao ili kulinda raslimali  za nchi husika ili zitumike kwa manufaa ya umma.

“Tangulizeni maslahi ya nchi na si ya kwenu binafsi katika mikataba ya kimataifa na kuondokana na vitendo vya rushwa”, alisema Mdemu.

Kwa upande wake, Mkurugenzi wa Mafunzo wa Uongozi Institute, Kadari Singo amesema mafunzo hayo yameandaliwa kutokana na nchi za kiafrika kuwa nyuma katika majadaliano ya mikataba ya kimataifa.

“Tumeamua kufanya mafunzo haya kuwafundisha maafisa waandamizi toka nchi za kiafrika ili kuwapa ujuzi na utaalamu wa kufanya majadiliano ya mikataba ili iweze kuwa na manufaa kwa nchi husika”, alisema Singo.

Kwa mujibu wa Bwana Singo, mafunzo ya aina hiyo yatakuwa endelevu kwa watumishi wa Serikali ii kuiwajengea uwezo katika eneo hilo na yatakuwa yakifanyika kujumuisha wataalam wa sekta husika kama vile, sekta madini, misitu, wanyamapori na sheria.

Aidha, Singo alisema mafunzo haya yatahakikisha yanapinga vikali vitendo vya rushwa kwenye mikataba ili kuzinusuru nchi za kiafrika kutumbukia katika mikataba isiyowanufaisha wananchi.

Mafunzo haya yameandaliwa na Uongozi Institute na yamewajumuisha watumishi wa serikali waandamizi kutoka nchi za Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Namibia na wenyeji Tanzania.

Hivi karibuni, Mheshimiwa Rais John Pombe Magufuli wakati akipokea ripoti ya pili ya uchunguzi wa mchanga wa madini alimtaka Spika wa Bunge kutumia Bunge lake kupitia sheria za madini ili kuhakikisha sheria hizo zinaleta manufaa kwa wananchi.

Mikataba ya madini na mali za asli nyingine imekuwa ikipigiwa kelele kuwa haina lengo la kuinufaisha nchi bali watu wa nchi nyingine. Hivyo Miswada ya Maliasili za nchi imepelekwa Bungeni kwa Hati ya Dharula ili kutoa nafasi ya kutunga sheria mapema iwezekanavyo za kuleta manufaa na tija kwa nchi hasa kupitia madini na maliasili nyingine zikiwemo mbuga za wanyama na hifadhi nyingine za Taifa.

Kwa kuzingatia unyeti na umuhimu wa suala hilo, muda wa kumaliza Bunge umeongezwa badala ya kumaliza Juni 30 sasa litaenda hadi Julai 5, 2017.

          Debutants strike as US down Ghana   

Washington (AFP) – English-born striker Dom Dwyer scored a goal on his international debut as the United States defeated Ghana 2-1 in a friendly international on Saturday. Sporting Kansas City forward Dwyer, who became a US citizen three months ago, lashed home a first-half volley to fire the Americans ahead as they build towards this month’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. Another debutant, FC Dallas’s Kellyn Acosta scored the American side’s second goal on 52 as Bruce Arena’s team — with several first-choice players rested — claimed a well-earned win. Ghana’s veteran forward Asamoah Gyan pulled a goal back for the visitors

Column published in the Newcastle Journal on 19 January, 2007.

***

Anyone who has followed this column for any length of time will know by now that I take the view that very little of what happens in politics is historically inevitable.

Contrary to those who would have us believe that everything is pre-ordained, the world is full of “what ifs?” which could have caused everything to turn out differently.

Margaret Thatcher may have come to dominate her era – but had it not been for Jim Callaghan’s tactical blundering in the autumn of 1978, the Iron Lady might never even have made it to Number 10.

Later, Tony Blair would be Prime Minister for almost as long – but had John Smith not dropped dead one morning in May 1994, New Labour might have forever remained just a twinkle in Peter Mandelson’s eye.

So to begin with this week, here’s a slice of counterfactual history. It is 2003, and former Leader of the Commons Robin Cook has just stood up to make a personal statement in the House following his resignation over the plans to invade Iraq.

Mr Cook is just getting into his formidable stride when, suddenly, journalists and MPs alike are startled to see the Welsh Secretary, Peter Hain, slip onto the backbenches alongside him.

Outside the Chamber afterwards, Mr Hain confirms to camera crews in Central Lobby that he, too, has resigned from the Cabinet in protest at Mr Blair’s decision to join the US-led invasion.

The twin resignation rocks the government to its foundations, and although Mr Blair narrowly survives, Messrs Cook and Hain increasingly come to be seen as the moral conscience of the Labour movement.

Fast forward to the summer of 2005, and Mr Cook’s sudden death while out walking in the Scottish Highlands leaves Mr Hain as the undisputed leader of Labour’s anti-war left.

His principled opposition to the disastrous conflict, coupled with his brave stance against apartheid in the 70s, has made him a hero for many, and he is increasingly spoken of as a potential challenger for the leadership when Mr Blair stands down.

Sure enough, in June 2007, the 56-year-old Neath MP announces to rapturous applause from party activists that he will take on Gordon Brown for the Labour crown.

After a titanic struggle for the soul of the party, Mr Brown prevails. But Mr Hain has too much support in the party to be sidelined, and is rewarded with the plum job of Foreign Secretary and effective Cabinet Number Two.

Far-fetched? Well, perhaps no more so than a minister spending £200,000 of someone else’s money pursuing the most worthless job in British politics only to come fifth behind Harriet Harman.

But what this little story hopefully illustrates is that, for Mr Hain, his problems began long before it emerged that he had failed to fill in his campaign returns properly.

What finished him was not so much that, as the realisation that this one-time radical idealist had ended up compromising every radical ideal he ever held in order to keep his backside on a ministerial chair.

The upshot was a loss of credibility within the party, the extent of which only finally became clear following his dismal performance in last summer’s deputy leadership contest.

In the light of that result, it was a rather magnanimous gesture on Mr Brown’s part to keep Mr Hain in the Cabinet at all, albeit in the middle-ranking post of Work and Pensions Secretary.

To be fair, he has since gone on to win one small but important victory in that role, overcoming Treasury objections to secure a £725m rescue package for 125,000 workers who lost pension rights when their employers went bust.

But the truth is that ever since the deputy leadership debacle, Mr Hain has been living on borrowed political time.

Even if the row over his campaign funding not occurred, he was already seen as a likely casualty of the next reshuffle, and this appears now to have escalated into a racing certainty.

If anyone is in any doubt about this, he or she should make a careful study of the Prime Minister’s words on the subject in a week in which he has twice effectively hung Mr Hain out to dry.

On Monday, he gave an interview in which he said that while he had full confidence in his Cabinet colleague, his future was “out of his hands.”

Later in the week, he said that while Mr Hain had done a good job overall, he had been guilty of “an incompetence” in failing to file his campaign returns – a careful distinction likely to remain lost on Labour’s opponents.

If this is what passes for a vote of confidence in Mr Brown’s eyes, remind me never to go tiger-shooting with him.

The Prime Minister would have done better, in my view, to have acted more decisively and used the departure of Mr Hain as an opportunity to strengthen his beleaguered administration.

Firstly, it would have freed up a Cabinet berth for Darlington MP Alan Milburn, bringing much-needed fresh thinking into the government and enabling Mr Brown to stage a public rapprochement with the Blairites.

Secondly, it would have created an opening for a long-overdue structural reshuffle, combining the territorial Cabinet posts under a single Department for Devolved Affairs.

Why Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland still need a Cabinet minister each when they all now have their own elected First Ministers is not just beyond me but many other observers besides.

What of the bigger picture? Has the ongoing controversy over Mr Hain blown Gordon’s much-vaunted New Year “relaunch” off-course?

Well, maybe - although the looming question of whether or not to nationalise Northern Rock is probably giving the Prime Minister many more sleepless nights.

But that said, Mr Brown seemed at last this week to be finding his feet at Prime Minister’s Questions, putting David Cameron on the defensive over his own shifts in policy towards the Rock.

Maybe he’s starting to like the job a bit more. Or maybe he was just enjoying the fact that, for once, the focus of attention was elsewhere.

          Timbers Lose Another Lead, Draw in Kansas City   
by Abe Asher

IM1.jpg

Despite all the injuries — both physical and mental — suffered in the last week, when the Portland Timbers retook the field on Saturday night in Kansas City, they looked like their best selves.

Playing in a venue where the home team hadn't lost in more than a year, the Timbers were in control. Their attacking play was sharp. Their midfield was strong, and their makeshift back six was rarely made uncomfortable.

It was, for the first time in a long time, a positive, balanced 90 minutes. But on a night when they took the lead, when a win would have carried an especially long way, the Timbers couldn't quite finish the job.

Instead, they dropped two more points from a winning position and — stop me if you've heard this before — failed to win a game that shouldn't have been all that close. The Timbers stopped the bleeding on Saturday. But they could have done plenty more.

While Portland entered this game hobbled, three of Kansas City's best players were suiting up for another team. Matt Besler, Graham Zusi, and Dom Dwyer were all in the U.S.'s lineup in Hartford against Ghana, and the effect of their absences was apparent from the get-go.

Peter Vermes called his team's start "sluggish," and that was a conservative descriptor. Sporting's first half pace was mind-bendingly slow. The home team — perhaps affected by its midweek excursion in the U.S. Open Cup in Houston — managed just two shots and lost Gerso, one of its few game-changers, to injury.

Portland, meanwhile — having cleared its schedule of any Cup committments in unflinching fashion several weeks ago — quickly established the kind rhythm on both sides of the ball that Sporting so impressively denied them when the two teams met at Providence Park back in April.

And while that rhythm was nice, it took a moment of genius from who else but Diego Valeri to unlock the league's premier defense.

Midway through the first half, Valeri picked up a slipped pass from his compatriot Sebastian Blanco and came flowing forward with teammates in support. But with Kevin Ellis retreating, Valeri decided to wind up, and, from twenty-five yards, belt a shot that flew past Tim Melia and cracked in off the underside of the crossbar.

It was, even by the Maestro's lofty standards, an awfully sweet strike. The ball absolutely exploded off of his right foot and traveled at an inch-perfect height. You can't hit them that well even in FIFA.

For a player who has mostly toiled since his return from injury in mid-May, it was a resounding strike — and it gave a team that has mostly toiled since mid-May an excellent opportunity. Taking the lead against Sporting is half the battle. It's not a team particularly well suited to play from from behind.

An hour of solid soccer against a team rolling with Latif Blessing, Soony Saad, and Daniel Salloi on its front line — a combined two goals this year — and the Timbers would have their biggest win of the season.

IM2.jpg

Sporting dug in to the extent that they could in the second half, and almost had an early equalizer when Ike Opara had a free run onto a Benny Feilhaber free kick.

But Opara pushed his header wide, and Kansas City would go the rest of the game without creating a clear-cut chance — bar one moment, on the hour mark, when Roger Espinosa lofted a pass towards Salloi, who was streaking past Alvas Powell and into the Timbers' penalty area.

Powell was caught unaware, and Salloi took his chance with a remarkable measure of composure — bringing the ball down, and lifting it over Jake Gleeson to bring Sporting level.

It was a good finish by the kid, but also the latest in a catalogue of bad moments this season from Powell. Porter was extremely generous in gifting the Jamaican his starting spot back before the Seattle game last weekend, but it's neither a spot he's earned over Zarek Valentin nor a spot he should have.

Still, even with Sporting newly invigorated, the Timbers had the chances to win.

The first came when Adi, played through by Valeri, went flying under an imaginary Melia challenge and won a penalty. But justice was done moments later, when Valeri — who'd never had a spotkick saved in a regular season game — saw his conversion attempt parried away by the Kansas City 'keeper.

And there was no karmic excuse a minute later, when Lawrence Olum airmailed a chance to beat his former team after Ben Zemanski's cross found him all alone five yards from Melia's goal.

At the end of the day, whether the Adi penalty gets whistled or not, the Timbers let Kansas City off the hook. They got the performances they needed to win. Darlington Nagbe's shift in central midfield was a primary example.

When Nagbe was deployed in central midfield two weeks ago in Colorado, he was — to put it lightly — a defensive liability. Not so this week. Nagbe stepped up with a Chara-esque eight defensive recoveries, won several tackles, several fouls, completed all 53 of his passes, and barely broke a sweat in the process.

It was a big-time performance — the kind of performance the Timbers knew they had to have to compete in this game — and they still couldn't manage to turn it into three points.

The good news is that this year's Western Conference will forgive dropped points in July and then some. Porter — so seething last week — appeared heartened by his team's effort. He called it "something we can build on."

Considering that the Timbers were winning a road game very similar to this one on the second weekend of the season in Los Angeles, there is scant joy to be found in that mild praise.

The process of building this team back up from the position it found itself in last Monday morning is promising to be a considerable one — and while there's time to see that process through, it's not exactly how anyone who watched the start of the season unfold figured they'd be spending their summer.

          Family matters: Husband joins wife scoring for US soccer   

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — Dom Dwyer volleyed in a go-ahead goal in the 19th minute of his international debut, ran to the corner flag and did a double back flip that would make a gymnast proud.

Back home in Missouri, wife Sydney Leroux was overjoyed.

The goal made Dwyer and Leroux the first husband-and-wife couple to score for the United States, which beat Ghana 2-1 on Saturday in an exhibition ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"I'm very proud of Sydney and what she's achieved and still achieving in the national team," Dwyer said. "I've got quite a few caps to catch up to her, and a few goals, too."

Brad Guzan saved Asamoah Gyan's penalty kick in first-half stoppage time, and Kellyn Acosta added his first international goal in the 52nd minute on a low free kick that bounced in. Gyan curled a free kick just under the crossbar in the 60th, leaving the final 2-1 — matching Ghana's victories that eliminated the U.S. from the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and the American win over the Black Stars at the 2014 tournament.

"I got fired in 2006. It took me 11 years to get this job back," Arena said, laughing, after the U.S. improved to 4-0-4 since he replaced Jurgen Klinsmann in November.

Born in Cuckfield, England, Dwyer was in Norwich City's youth system but broke his right foot three times and was released. He moved to the United States in 2009 to attend Tyler Junior College, shifted to the University of South Florida, then was drafted by Sporting Kansas City in 2012 and has played for the team ever since. He became a U.S. citizen on March 16 and made his international debut at age 26.

Leroux, a 27-year-old forward from British Columbia, played for Canada at age 14 in the 2004 Under-19 Women's World Cup, became a star at UCLA and switched affiliation to the U.S. She has 35 goals in 75 international appearances and helped the Americans win a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics and the title at the 2015 Women's World Cup.

They met when she was training with the national team in Kansas City and were introduced by a mutual friend.

"We just kind of hung out. We were buddies, and then we started to hit it off," he said.

Dwyer and Leroux announced on Valentine's Day 2015 that they had married a month earlier. She wears No. 2 and he No. 14

Of course, the home is filled with competition.

"We have little bits here and there. We definitely encourage each other," he said. "She definitely owes me money for this one."

They are only the fourth husband and wife to both play for the U.S., joining Jim Gabarra and Carin Jennings, Claudio Reyna and Danielle Egan and Zach Loyd and Casey Nogueira. Egan's only goal was in 1993, four years before she married Reyna.

"I'm insanely proud of him and so happy for the overall win for the MNT," Leroux said through a spokesman. "I love the fact that we both came to the USA from other countries and get to chase our dreams together wearing the crest that means so much to us. When he scored, it's really hard to describe the feeling. Just chills. I know this is only the beginning for him."

Arena changed eight starters from his lineup in the June 11 World Cup qualifier at Mexico, retaining only Guzan, Acosta and Paul Arriola. Seven American starters entered with fewer than 10 international appearances.

There also were debuts for a pair of midfielders: Kelyn Rowe started on the left flank and Kenny Saief, who played twice for Israel before switching his affiliation to the U.S. last month, entered in the 71st.

Atop a 4-5-1 formation, Dwyer failed to take advantage of scoring chances in the 14th and 17th minutes, then broke through. Jorge Villafana dribbled from the left flank past defenders and laid the ball back to Joe Corona, who made his first U.S. appearance in two years. Corona's shot hit Villafana and bounced up to Dwyer, who scored with his left foot from 8 yards.

Dwyer broke in again in the 24th and was sent tumbling by a studs-up tackle from goalkeeper Richard Ofori, who was given only a yellow card by referee Ismael Ornejo of El Salvador.

"First 10 minutes or so, he looked a little nervous out there, but he got ahold of the game and did well," Arena said.

Getting ready to open the Gold Cup against Panama on July 8, the U.S. wore new uniforms with red and blue horizontal stripes. Leroux, at home for FC Kansas City's National Women's Soccer League match on Sunday, watched with 10-month-old son Cassius and teammate Becky Sauerbrunn.

Cassius wore a white home U.S. kit with mom's number, according to a photo she posted on Instagram. Will he wind up playing for the U.S.?

"I'm not going to put any pressure on him," Dwyer said, "but he's probably going to want to copy mommy and daddy."

Arena, 65, won't be waiting.

"You don't expect me to be coaching, do you?" he said.

Unburdening the hungover mind grapes of a handful of generally irrelevant but somewhat timely thoughts, GTB-style.

A couple of days ago, baseball writer Rob Neyer retweeted a comment about the animated comedy Ratatouille:


I hadn't really considered his point, but after pondering it, yeah, I'm down with that. It's a fantastic little film, visually as well as narratively. If you haven't seen it, or if your kids haven't, please rectify that.

The new U.S. Men's National Team kits might be my favorite of all time. They're sharp as hell. You can get one for a cool $154.99 via ussoccerstore.com, just in case you're looking for a gift for me. I wear a medium.

The good guys played pretty well in them yesterday, too, as a relatively inexperienced American side put on an attractive footballing display in a 2-1 win over Ghana. The 2017 Gold Cup starts Friday, and the Ghana friendly has this observer optimistic about the Yanks' fortunes.


If you're looking for a reason to question your Christian faith, may I recommend Reza Aslan's Zealot. It's a painstakingly-researched history of Jesus of Nazareth's life and the emergence of Christianity. Dave couldn't make it through the book, so I'm little bit nervous that I won't finish the journey, but I've read enough to be fascinated.

Speaking of soccer kits, if you want to know what my 13 year-old looks like, check out the kid on the right, modeling our Club's new unis. She looks a lot fiercer than she plays. I'm kinda ambivalent about the white and red jerseys, if we're being honest. 


And finally, as the deluge of public policy outrages continues apace, we note with some dismay Florida's new law allowing any resident of the state to challenge what kids are taught in science classes. Or, more accurately, implementing a process to facilitate such challenges by anyone, regardless of whether they are the parent of guardian of a student in the public system. The continuing assault on expertise can't be anything but a negative.

One can see the contours of a somewhat dystopian future where red states become increasingly hostile to science, while blue state residents double down on the value of experts across fields, exacerbating the economic and attitudinal divide that plagues our wobbling nation.

On that happy note, hope you and yours have a glorious Independence Day.

          TOP SECRET: How Evans, Kidnap Gang Members Got Multiple Nigerian Passports - NIS Officers Open Up   
Evans The Kidnapper
The Nigerian Immigration Service, (NIS), has said that the notorious kidnap suspect, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, (alias Evans) and his cronies risk 10 years imprisonment and N2mllion fine each if it is proven that they actually possess multiple Nigerian passports.

Police detectives investigating the confessed billionaire kidnapper, Evans, and his accomplices have discovered that the gang members, including Felix Chukwuma Kanu, have obtained several Nigerian passports.

Malaysian deportee and native of Amaekpo, Ohafia in Abia State, Kanu, claimed ownership of three passports, although in different names and various personal details, but with same photograph

One of his passports bears the name Kanu Felix Chineyerem, born on October 13, 1980, a native or Arochukwu. The passport, issued at the NIS, Ikoyi, has the serial number no A01349427. The second which also has his photograph has the number A02101757, with the name Arinze David, born on April 1, 1973, but issued in Abeokuta, Ogun State.


Police detectives have discovered that the second passport has been tampered with since it was originally issued to one Lukmon Fatimon in Ogun State on January 25, 2016. Kanu said he travelled with the fake one in connivance with agents at exit points, who ensured he did not pass through the normal protocol, accentuated by the fact that the system does not check the face of the traveller but his statistics.

But in an interview with Sunday Telegraph, NIS Spokesman, Assistant Comptroller of Immigration, Sunday James, said that anyone found in possession of more than one Nigerian passport commits a crime and shall be liable, upon conviction to a 10-year jail term.

Giving a legal basis for this position, he said Section 10 of the Immigration Act states: “Any person who holds or is in unauthorised possession of more than one valid Nigerian Passport, unlawful alters, tampers with or mutilates any passport or any pages thereof,
“Knowingly makes or causes to be made any false statement for purpose of procuring a passport whether for himself or for another person; submits multiple application forms to one or more passport offices with the intention of obtaining multiple passports; knowingly conceals, hides from or fails to disclose to the proper authority the loss of a passport; “Acts as a broker at or in the vicinity of any passport office or elsewhere, for the procurement of a passport, forges or traffics in passports or holds or is in possession of any forged passport knowing the same to be forged, or “Attempts, aids, abets, counsels, procures, connives or conspires with any other person to do any of the acts mentioned in this subsection, Commits an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of 10 years or a fine of two million naira or both.”

Speaking against the revelation that some of the cronies of the notorious kidnap suspect claim that they own five passports or more, the Service brushed such assertions aside, stating that, it is impossible to possess more than one e-passport, because such would be stopped at the point of acquisition.

ACI Sunday James, said: “I can tell you categorically that the e-passport is tamper-proof and for any reason, may be of theft, it is still subject to the biometrics of the original owner. So any attempt to tamper with it by replacing the name or passport photograph, or even cloning renders it useless.

“But I can tell you that nobody can use the passport of another person. It is very difficult for anyone to use the e-passport of another person. But we cannot rule out cloning which can be done by fraudsters in some parts of the country.

“It is impossible for any individual to have more than one valid Nigerian e-passport. Though one cannot rule out the Oluwole factor, even after the place has been dismantled in Lagos since March 2005.There could be some other syndicates all over the country who carry out such forgeries,” he said.

According to him, should any individual obtain passport by different names, it would be detected by the immigration system, either at the point of acquisition, or wherever it is presented either at point of entry or exit. Immigration systems make it easy to detect cloned or fake passports.

Explaining further he said that “under stolen or lost document (STLD), an individual can steal someone else’s passport and take it outside the Immigration system to a syndicate group and do something cynical with it; like identity theft or cloning.

“But where such is done, the impersonator cannot pass through our recognised entry routes; that person only uses illegal points. If you steal any person’s passport and the person reports, it will be rendered useless. The person cannot use any of our entry points, because that passport will be detected,” James said.

Also, a Comptroller of Immigration who pleaded anonymity, corroborated this story, saying: “I can categorically tell you that it’s impossible for anyone to have two Nigerian International Passports not to talk of having five with the way the programme is now structured.

“It is not possible. You can do that if the system allows it. For someone bearing the same name to have two International Passports in his name is not possible. At the point of capturing, the acquisition machine, which captures even the fingerprint will definitely expose such person.”

Expatiating on the case of Evans and his cronies that have multiple passports, he said: “Have they presented the passport? Don’t forget the IG said Ghanaian-Nigerian passport. Have the passports been confirmed genuine? Don’t also rule it out; one can get fake passports.”

He said, however, that the gang members and indeed anyone who possesses more than one passport, steals and or alters any existing one will be prosecuted and charged to court and the penalty is 10 years imprisonment as earlier stated.

On activities of master forgers, he said even after raiding and stamping out Oluwole counterfeiters, there is no denying their existence.

“For every step government is taking, the organised crime people are trying to outsmart us. Don’t forget this is their craft. They don’t have any other job than to produce fake document for anyone who wants to patronise them,” he said.

          El Narco ABRE nueva RUTA desde Sudamérica a Europa Vía Africa como "Ayuda humanitaria"!!   

El médico argentino Gabriel Zilli, especialista en tratamiento para atenuar el dolor en los enfermos de cáncer, estaba nervioso. Temblaba. A su lado, en su casa en el barrio de Arroyito de Rosario, una ciudad de un millón 200 mil habitantes ubicada a 300 kilómetros de Buenos Aires, Argentina, el portugués Fernando Martins Frutuoso y el colombiano Wilmar Yuriano Valencia Estrada, del Cártel de los Urabeños, cocinaban en una olla grande arroz.


El oncólogo estaba intranquilo porque era su debut como narcotraficante. Sus compañeros colombianos practicaban en su casa un sofisticado método para que la cocaína quedara adherida a cada grano de arroz.

Esta organización de narcotraficantes colombianos, argentinos, ecuatorianos y portugueses, liderada por los hermanos Erman y Williams Triana Peña tenía previsto enviar a Guinea-Bissau, África, a través de la empresa Euro Export SRL, un cargamento de 46 toneladas de arroz. La carga iba a llegar a ese pequeño país de 1.5 millones de personas a través del programa “Hambre Cero”, de la Organización de Naciones Unidas (ONU).

El cargamento fue descubierto en septiembre de 2015 por la Gendarmería argentina en el depósito fiscal Binder SRL, en el oeste de Rosario. En la investigación que llevaron adelante el juez federal Sergio Torres y el jefe la Procuraduría de Narcotráfico (PROCUNAR), Diego Iglesias —en la que hay 72 imputados—, se descubrió que esta organización trasnacional creó 30 empresas en Argentina para “lavar” 5 millones 337 mil dólares.

El ex secretario de Justicia argentino Guillermo Heisinger era uno de los principales miembros de esta organización para blanquear el dinero en compañías de distintos rubros: agropecuarias, financieras y servicios fúnebres, como un crematorio de cadáveres ubicado a 20 kilómetros de donde se cocina el arroz con cocaína.

África es una nueva ruta del narcotráfico desde América Latina que empieza a preocupar. Los intermediarios en ese continente que se dedican a introducir la droga en Europa pertenecen a organizaciones criminales enquistadas en los gobiernos, con nexos directos con el terrorismo y el tráfico de armas.

La ministra de Seguridad argentina, Patricia Bullrich, señaló que este país es un mercado atractivo para los traficantes y que parte de la exportación local de cocaína “financia” a “grupos terroristas” en África. Bullrich explicó que la cocaína se triangula por África para llegar a Europa. “Servicios de inteligencia de otras naciones nos confirmaron que se les paga ‘peaje’ a grupos terroristas para hacer las operaciones”, declaró.
Según un informe de la Comunidad de Policías de América (Ameripol), por la ruta africana pasa 30% del total de la cocaína que tiene como destino final a Europa. África se transformó durante los últimos cinco años en un punto clave en el mapa del narcotráfico mundial. Y para las organizaciones criminales de América Latina es una ruta alternativa cada vez más utilizada para llegar a Europa, donde los controles se incrementaron.

Pioneros. La Oficina de Naciones Unidas contra la Droga y el Delito (UNODC, por sus siglas en inglés) activó las alarmas y pidió que se intensifiquen “los esfuerzos para erradicar el tráfico de drogas y la delincuencia organizada en África occidental, base central para el tráfico de cocaína desde América Latina hacia Europa”.

Los principales cárteles de droga mexicanos fueron los primeros que incursionaron en la ruta africana. Los Zetas, el Cártel de Sinaloa y Jalisco Nueva Generación tejieron puentes con ese continente con la ayuda de la mafia italiana Ndrangheta desde hace más de siete años.

Samuel González Ruiz, ex director de la Unidad Especializada de Delincuencia Organizada de la Procuración mexicana, señaló que “desde 2010 el Cártel de Sinaloa empezó a tener presencia en África”.

El cártel liderado por Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, alias El Chapo, extraditado a Estados Unidos en enero pasado, usa la ruta de Guinea Bissau para introducir la droga en Europa. En esa región operan tres facciones del Cártel de Sinaloa, una de ellas liderada por Damaso López Serrano, alias Mini Lic.

Los cárteles colombianos también tienen aceitados nexos con el continente africano. Las autoridades de ese país calculan que unas 130 toneladas de cocaína —la tercera parte de lo que se “exporta” desde Colombia— terminan en puertos africanos antes de ser diseminados por Europa. Esa droga sale generalmente por el puerto de Santos, Brasil.

Alianzas. En Togo y Guinea-Bissau hay varios colombianos que fueron capturados que llevaban cargamentos de droga en alianzas con redes venezolanas y brasileñas. Las organizaciones brasileñas como la Familia del Norte (FDN) y el Primer Comando de la Capital (PCC) trabajan con reductos de las desmovilizadas Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), con el poderoso Clan del Golfo y con la banda criminal los Caqueteños que opera en el sur de Colombia.


Según fuentes de la Dirección Central de Policía Judicial e Inteligencia (DIJIN), Los Caqueteños controlan con la FDN el tráfico de droga por toda la frontera terrestre y fluvial entre Brasil, Perú y Colombia.

Agentes federales de Estados Unidos aseguraron que la droga que ingresa a Brasil termina en Europa, vía Surinam y África. Varios de los cabecillas de las bandas brasileñas asesinados en las masacres de las cárceles en enero pasado se mataron por el control de esas rutas con los narcos colombianos.

En 2013, los colombianos Rafael Antonio Garavito García y Gustavo Pérez García, fueron capturados por formar parte de una red transnacional aliada con las FARC que llevaba cocaína hacia Guinea-Bissau y traía armas para el grupo guerrillero, según informaron agentes de la DEA.

En el caso de Venezuela, las autoridades estadounidenses avanzan en varias acusaciones que probarían que funcionarios y militares de ese país facilitan el envío de cocaína colombiana rumbo a África y a Europa. La droga sale de la zona del Catatumbo, en el norte de ese país, cuyos cultivos se han duplicado en los últimos cuatro años.

Debido a la amplitud y porosidad de la frontera entre Colombia y Venezuela, se calcula que hay más de 25 pasos habilitados para mover cocaína rumbo a África y a Europa. Casi todas las rutas del narco parten de del sur de Bolívar, Cesar, La Guajira, Arauca y Vichada. Los destinos son el estado de Apure, el Zulia, la península de Paraguaná, Caracas y la Isla de Margarita.

Mildred Camero, ex presidenta de la Organización Nacional Antidrogas (ONA) de Venezuela, dijo que este país “agrava su papel de principal corredor de sustancias ilícitas en Sudamérica hacia otros Estados del continente americano, Europa y África Occidental. Las incautaciones en el exterior han aumentado en menos de un año; y persiste el vacío de mecanismos de control”.

La noche del 2 de junio pasado, la Policía Antidrogas de Perú decomisó 474 kilos de cocaína que iban a ser embarcados en el puerto de Paita, departamento de Piura, con destino a Abidján, en Costa de Marfil. La cocaína fue camuflada en conos de hilos almacenados en cajas de cartón. El cargamento había sido remitido por la empresa Coagromar S.A, con sede en el Cantón Huaquillas, ciudad ecuatoriana que es, a su vez, la principal entrada terrestre con Perú. Fueron detenidas siete personas: cinco peruanos y dos ecuatorianos. No es la primera vez que se menciona el puerto de Paita como un punto de exportación utilizado por narcotraficantes.

El fiscal antidrogas de Perú, Juan Mendoza, aseguró que las mafias africanas negocian la compra de cargamentos en Uruguay, Argentina y Brasil, debido a que Perú es sólo un país productor de cocaína.

En Brasil la puerta de salida hacia África es el puerto de Santos, de donde se “exporta” 88% de la droga que logra salir de ese país, según calcularon las fuentes. El modus operandi detectado por la Policía Federal de Brasil es el llamado “rip-on rip-off”: los narcotraficantes, con la ayuda de cómplices, camuflan la cocaína en cargas lícitas dentro de contenedores. El procurador brasileño Carlos Bruno Ferreira Da Silva calculó que sólo se logra inspeccionar “entre 5 y 10% de las cargas que salen de Brasil”.

Una de las rutas más dinámicas hacia África es la llamada Carretera 10, por donde sale cocaína de Brasil a países de África occidental, antes de ser redistribuida para Europa. Otros puertos bajo la lupa son el de Montevideo, en Uruguay, y Buenos Aires y Rosario, en Argentina. Una fuente judicial uruguaya dijo al GDA que la Policía de ese país detectó este año que el grupo brasileño Primer Comando de la Capital (PCC) traficó cocaína por el puerto de Montevideo rumbo a África y de ahí a Europa.

En Uruguay se descubrieron envíos de droga por correo a África. El 10 de abril pasado, la empresa FedEx denunció dos paquetes sospechosos en Montevideo. Se encontró cocaína impregnada en ropa y dentro de un taladro. El hombre que enviaba las encomiendas era un brasileño, que tenía cinco documentos falsos de ese país. Envió encomiendas con cocaína a Hong Kong, Cabo Verde y Sudáfrica; y a Madrid, según el Ministerio del Interior de Uruguay.

En Costa Rica también se utiliza el correo para traficar drogas a África. Las remesas casi siempre son pequeñas cantidades y viajan por correo o en valijas de viajeros que son nativos de países como Nigeria, Congo, Ghana y Sudáfrica.

Ante la preocupación por estas nuevas rutas y movimientos de los carteles, la Dirección de Lucha contra el Crimen Organizado e Interpol se reunieron con sus pares de la región por el tráfico de drogas hacia África. Tratan de hacer un trabajo coordinado para conocer el modus operandi de las organizaciones y luego atrapar a los traficantes.

Según Amado de Andrés, representante regional de la UNODC, en los últimos tres años creció la producción de cocaína en América Latina. Calcula que el incremento alcanza las 200 toneladas. El funcionario reconoció que el incremento de la producción de estupefacientes se debe a un factor clave: el proceso de paz en Colombia. De Andrés explicó a GDA en El Salvador, que el aumento de la producción de cocaína está vinculado con las operaciones de la FARC: “El proceso de paz en Colombia ha tenido buenos resultados, excepto por la reducción de las plantaciones de coca en regiones colombianas”.

Photos: Europe-based man in pain after lady he met on Facebook absconded with his cars & luggage on arrival in Ghana
Police in Ghana have reportedly launched a manhunt for a lady identified as one Nana And Asare, who allegedly disappeared with cars, luggage, other valuable items belonging to an EU-based Ghanaian man, Kingsley Osei Bonsu, (pictured) whom she met on Facebook and started a relationship with. 

Kingsley posted the photos on his Facebook asking for information that could lead to her arrest.
"This lady has duped me heavily, if u know her where about kindly assist me to get her arrested. Please contact me on whatsapp; 0032466136085 or 0244835990 or 0201209346
Anyone who can help me in helping me get her arrested will be rewarded handsomely" he wrote.


Meanwhile, read the post shared by Frank Bawumia on how it all happened:
A guy resident in Europe met this lady Nana Ama Asare, otherwise known as Victoria Tebri on Fb and lovi lovi ensued! At some point in their long distance talk talk,  the guy expressed the desire to settle back in Ghana so he shipped 3 cars to his supposed fiance plus money for port charges.  Nana Ama Asare dutifully cleared the vehicles giving the impression that she is faithful partner.   So May 29 this year, Borga packed bag and baggage to get closer to his Yellow Sister for the necessary biegya and other things! On arrival at KIA, Nana Ama was waiting at the reception.  What a loving galfriend she is!  He had come with two of the vehicles, she drove one veh and a male friend drove the other.  Since that was their first time of seeing each other, they agreed to spend the night at the hotel so that no one will hear their moaning and groaning.  The luggage was packed in the other car whilst the two new lovers drove in one car.  On their way to the hotel, they stop to eat a restaurant.  Whilst at the Restaurant, Ms Nana Ama Asare asked politely to pick something from the car just for a moment, but apparently that's was her escape plan!  SHE DISAPPEARED and that was the last time her new found lover heard of her. Borga waited and waited saaaaaaa till he could no longer endure the loneliness and the frustration anymore n went home confused, raped and sad!  Soon as Ms Asare disappeared, all her phones went off and her fb porfile pulled down! The case has since been reported to the police and the general public is hereby requested to help apprenhend this yellow sisi of doubtful character! I have the "other pics" and will be provided if u help to arrest her.  If u have any info to help  kindly call any of the nos below.

          The 5 Challenge   



“Is this worth $5 of happiness?”

This is a question my friend and sister-in-law Janet asks herself when tempted to purchase something slightly frivolous. It’s a great way to find out if you’re in the grip of an impulse that will evaporate the minute you leave the store, or whether you will actually be happy you bought this the silly little thing (or not-so-silly — good chocolate could qualify, as well).

Today I’m asking you for five dollars. It can be the five dollars you didn’t spend on a trashy magazine or neon-coloured bandana. Or it can be the five dollars you spend on a coffee and a muffin, or the tips for the delivery guy.

There’s nothing wrong with spending your money on any one of those things, but today - and just today - I’m going to ask that you spend them on research and support programs for people with arthritis.
 
On June 4, I am walking the 5K in the Walk to Fight Arthritis. And I’d love to raise $500 in donations of five dollars each.


Arthritis has no borders. Someone who lives with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Canada is going through the same symptoms as someone who lives in the US, or Denmark, or the UK, or Ghana, or Malaysia. We face the same grief at the loss of who we were, struggle to find acceptance, experience depression, try straight together money for treatment, and we all are hoping for a cure.

The answers have no borders, either. The support programs available in one country can be replicated in another. Canadian research that chips away at breaking opening the mystery of RA will inform research in the US and Australia and Japan.

I found my tribe, my peeps with RA and other types of chronic illness online. I have never met you or the others who have become my friends over the past 12 years and it doesn’t matter. Because friendship has no boundaries, either.

We are all in this together. And to show this, on June 4 I will affix a sticker to my person with the name of every person who supports my Walk with $5. Because I want you with me there in spirit.

Is this worth five dollars of happiness?

PS The Arthritis Society has just announced that your $5 will become $10 over the next nine days. Until May 24, an anonymous donor will match donations to the Walk, up to $25,000.

          Cárteles mexicanos se expanden a África   

Con la llamada guerra contra el narcotráfico los cárteles mexicanos comenzaron a explorar nuevos mercados para el tráfico de drogas hasta expandirse en todo el mundo. Uno de sus principales puntos de venta, además de Estados Unidos, es Europa, y para llegar a ese continente los narcotraficantes mexicanos utilizan África como su centro de operación intermedio.

Aunque su máximo líder, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, está en una prisión de Estados Unidos, el "Cártel de Sinaloa" continúa como la organización que controla el mayor tráfico de drogas a África, seguido del "Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación" y "Los Zetas".

Fuentes consultadas de la Secretaría de Marina Armada de México (Semar) y otras autoridades que conforman el gabinete de seguridad afirmaron que no hay registros de que se utilice una ruta o logística directa México-África; por el contrario, Centro y Sudamérica son los eslabones por los que los cárteles mexicanos puedan transportar cocaína, heroína y metanfetaminas, por lo que no se tienen aseguramientos en México que tuvieran como destino ese continente.

Para poder operar, los cárteles mexicanos se han relacionado con los narcotraficantes colombianos, las pandillas centroamericanas y con la mafia italiana; estos últimos son sus contactos en África para hacer llegar las drogas a Europa.

En eso coincide Samuel González Ruiz, ex director de la Unidad Especializada en Delincuencia Organizada de la Procuraduría General de la República (PGR), quien en entrevista comenta que por el año 2010 el "Cártel de Sinaloa" comenzó a tener presencia en África.

"Hace unos años se conoció de la utilización de Guinea-Bissau, se logró detectar el paso de los cárteles mexicanos. El "Cártel de Sinaloa" tenía esa ruta, eso implicó varios esquemas de cooperación entre las autoridades", menciona, tras asegurar que Guinea-Bissau estaba fuertemente carcomido por la corrupción y el crimen organizado.

Para el también exconsultor de la Oficina de Naciones Unidas contra la droga y el delito, la cocaína del "Cártel de Sinaloa" se detectó que salía de América del Sur por avión (son aproximadamente siete horas de vuelo para llegar a África); "de ahí cambiaban de aeronave para el trasiego a Europa".

En el caso de la vía marítima, González señala que ese camino para el trasiego siempre ha existido. "Usan la ruta más corta entre América central y Europa —para llegar a España e Italia— y es bordeando África, por eso expandieron su presencia".

De acuerdo con información del gobierno federal, el "Cártel de Sinaloa" tiene presencia en África, donde domina Sudán, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leona, Liberia, Costa de Marfil, Cabo Verde, Ghana, Togo, Benín y Nigeria, lo que facilita la entrada de la droga a Europa por Portugal y España.

Martín Barrón Cruz, investigador del Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Penales (Inacipe), asegura que el "Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación" tenía una alianza con el de "El Chapo" Guzmán para operar en África, pero con la extradición de Guzmán Loera a Estados Unidos no se tiene definido si continúan operando juntos en ese continente.

"Hay tres países fundamentalmente complicados: Italia, Holanda y España. El gran problema es que no se conoce lo que sucede en África, tiene su propia lógica y estructura. Ellos (los africanos) necesariamente manejan otros controles para el tráfico de drogas, no sabemos cómo están funcionando y eso obedece al poco interés", indica.

La conexión entre los cárteles de la droga con africanos se corroboró en marzo de 2016, cuando la Agencia Nacional Antidrogas de Nigeria anunció la detención de ocho personas, cuatro de ellos mexicanos, en operativos en los estados de Lagos y Anambra.

Los mexicanos fueron identificados como Cervantes Madrid José Bruno, Rivas Ruiz Pastiano, Castillo Barraza Cristóbal y Partida González Pedro, a quienes se les relacionó como asesores técnicos para el funcionamiento de laboratorios clandestinos.

Thursday 15th June, 2017. After evaluating ten (10) proposals received in response to our Request for Proposals for Transaction Advisors for an Energy Sector Levy Act (ESLA) backed Bond, the Ministry of Finance is pleased to announce the selection of Fidelity Bank and Standard Chartered Bank led consortia as Joint Lead Managers (JLMs). 
 
2.         The Joint Lead Managers are expected to work closely with members of their respective syndicates/consortia and any other local banks/ financial institutions as Co-managers with the view to building capacity locally and facilitating knowledge transfer.

          Ghana benefits from Germany's 'Compact with Africa' Programme   

Ghana is one of the three countries in Africa to benefit from Germany's 'Compact with Africa' Programme.

The programme will assist Ghana improve conditions for sustainable private sector investment, infrastructure, economic participation, and generate employment in the country.

This was made known by the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, at a meeting with the Ghanaian community resident in Germany, held in honour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in Berlin.

Addressing the meeting, the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, explained that the Compact with Africa Programme, initially, had Senegal, Cote d'Ivoire, Tunisia, Morocco and Rwanda, as countries that had been signed onto the Compact.

Only three countries out of the five, he said, were to be beneficiaries of €100 million that came along with signing the Compact. However, Ghana was chosen as one of the countries signed onto the Compact.

The Finance Minister, attributed this to the leadership of President Akufo Addo He said “Ghana is back, we were no where near it (Compact with Africa Programme); but the work President Akufo Addo has been doing has resulted in the Germans saying, 'why don't we get Ghana involved in this?' And, that is why we are here”.

Ken Ofori-Atta noted that this development “was a real sign of confidence in Ghana”. We thought that it was over. Then they (Germans) came back a couple of weeks later, in March 2017, and said that 'we should put our money where our mouth is. So let us select three countries in Africa where we can have a bilateral relationship with, and they selected two of the countries who were already in the Compact - Tunisia and Cote d'Ivoire - and they said Ghana be part of it, that is the third country''.

He continued, 'They also said here is another 100 million Euros, do something with it. So you are beginning to see the response the world is having. We are beginning to see a sense of a re-generation; the Black Star is shining again. We certainly are not a poor country, as President Akufo Addo said. We are also not chickens, as Aggrey said, we are eagles and, as such, we should fly”.

G20 Compact with Africa, an initiative led by G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Presidents, is designed to make African countries more appealing to investors primarily through regulatory and fiscal policies, thus promoting infrastructure and economic development. A first step is currently being taken with five pilot countries: Senegal, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Rwanda and Tunisia. END
