          Air Canada va inaugurer le vol Montréal-Alger ce samedi   
Le premier vol direct d’Air Canada entre Montréal et Alger sera inauguré demain à partir de l’aéroport Pierre Elliott Trudeau, annonce la compagnie canadienne par voie de communiqué. « Air Canada est ravie de proposer un service sans escale au départ de Montréal et à destination d'Alger, une nouvelle destination attrayante qui renforce la place de l'aéroport Montréal-Trudeau en tant que plaque tournante stratégique pour l'ensemble de l'est du Canada et du nord-est des États-Unis, a affirmé Benjamin Smith, président – Transporteurs de passagers d'Air Canada. Misant sur le succès du service d'Air Canada Montréal–Casablanca maintenant assuré toute l’année, le service à destination d'Alger sera le seul vol sans escale exploité par un transporteur canadien entre Montréal et cette ville d'Afrique du Nord, établissant Air Canada comme un acteur de premier plan dans le marché important et grandissant entre le Canada et l'Algérie. Ce sera notre deuxième destination en Afrique, ce qui fait d'Air Canada l'un des rares transporteurs internationaux qui exploitent des vols à destination des six continents habités. » « Grâce à ce nouveau vol saisonnier, il sera maintenant possible de voyager et de transiter par Alger sans escale. Cela permettra d’élargir l’éventail d’opportunités des voyageurs, en plus de faire rayonner le Québec à l’étranger. En effet, je suis certaine que ce vol aller-retour favorisera l’attraction touristique vers notre belle métropole montréalaise.

A regional index of business conditions in the Chicago area rose in June to the highest level in more than three years, suggesting steady growth in the U.S. economy. The Chicago Business Barometer rose to 65.7 in June from 59.4 in May. That's the highest level since May 2014. New orders climbed to the highest level in three years and backlogs for orders reached a 23-year high, potentially reflecting large bookings for Boeing jets. An employment gauge fell slightly but still remained quite healthy. Companies were worried about a scarcity of skilled workers, an increasingly frequent complaint.

Student Data Deletion Day - Wouldn't That Be Great

Image result for Deleting data animated gif


From Education Week:

Bradley Shear is a lawyer who focuses on digital privacy and social media. 
He's also the father of two elementary-aged children who attend the public schools in Maryland's Montgomery County. 

A little over a year ago, Shear says, the focus of his professional life became an intensely personal concern, as well.

"I got a phone call from my son's teacher, who said he had performed an internet search for inappropriate content on a school-issued Chromebook," Shear said in an interview. "It got me thinking about all the data being collected about kids, and whether it will ever be deleted.
From Shear's blog, Shear on Social Media Law:

Every time our kids may be admonished for talking out of turn or texting in class they may receive a permanent demerit in Class Dojo.  In the near future, classrooms may be filled with cameras and other tracking technologies that also analyze our kids every interaction with their teachers and class mates. This is not some type of crazy prediction; in China, this Orwellian future is already a reality.

Multiple companies in the educational technology space have intentionally misled students, parents, teachers, administrators, and lawmakers about how they are using the personal data they are collecting about our kids in school. For example, Google was caught intentionally scanning student emails for advertising and other troubling purposes despite prior promises it was not.  ConnectEDU tried to sell personal student data for profit when it went bankrupt despite promising not to do so.* Edmodo, another educational technology company, was recently caught surreptitiously tracking students online to monetize their web surfing habits despite promises to the contrary.

As a parent and privacy advocate, I have come to the realization that more

Legislature to Pass Budget Today

 I was actually going to give you all kinds of links and updates but here's all you really need to know - the Dems caved, schools will not be fully-funded and property-rich areas will pay for most of the increases. 


Schools will get $7.3B more over the next four years.  This is not enough and is likely to not pass judicial muster for fully funding schools.  After this budget is passed, the Supreme Court will review the part that addresses McCleary and allow the plaintiffs to give their thoughts.  Any ruling on this issue would probably come at the end of the summer.

Tweet
Robert Cruinkshank
Last year, McCleary plaintiffs said $5.6 billion needed just for next school year. $7.3b over 4 years won't cut it 

- Property taxes will go up in Seattle/King County - by a lot. 
Tweet
Joe O'Sullivan
Rough numbers, Seattle will see $440/yr increase in property taxes for average house, Ranker says
-There will be a cap on the per dollar amount that local levies can ask for.

From Representative Zack Hutchins:
Initiative 1351
Staffing enrichments provided in the prototypical funding formula under Initiative 1351 are recodified in a different chapter of the RCWs. If additional staffing units are funded in future operating budgets, those units will then become a part of basic education.

Accountability
By 2019-20, school districts must provide separate accounting of state and local revenues and expenditures data. The State Auditor must conduct regular financial audits to ensure districts are using local revenues in compliance with this act. 

Categorical programs
·         Career and Technical Education and Skills Center Programs’ class sizes reduced
·         Highly Capable Program allocation increased from 2.314 to 5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Additional Learning Assistance Program allocation for high poverty schools
·         Special Education allocation increased from 12.7 to 13.5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Increased Transitional Bilingual Program instruction in middle and high schools by two hours

Joe O'Sullivan
Another tax change in deal: B&O tax rate for all manufacturing comes down to Boeing's preferential rate, Ranker says. 

Because much of the McCleary plan doesn't kick in for some time, Billig said lawmakers can tweak things if problems w/ plan.

On the public not being able to weigh in or even see the real actual budget in a timely manner:

Melissa Santos
 Lawmakers June Robinson and Dan Kristiansen are telling me public has had time to vet much of budget through past proposals

Mega-victories on the final budget deal - what's NOT in it is our biggest success
No income tax. No new capital gains tax.  No new carbon tax.  No increases in business taxes.

          Russian paper publishes alleged documents that Ukrainian air force was active during MH17 attack   
The Sovershenno Secretno newspaper (Top Secret) continues its investigation into the crash of the Malaysian Boeing over the Donbass. The newspaper has published another portion of documents that establish Kiev's guilt in the tragedy. Newspaper journalists have obtained a map, namely a secret flight plan, that was made and personally signed the day before the flight, on July 16, 2014, by the pilot of the 299th tactical aviation brigade, Captain Vladislav Voloshin. The plan was also approved by commander of the A4104 military unit, Colonel Gennady Dubovik. Ukraine persistently claims that there was no military aircraft flying in the area the day when the tragedy occurred. Yet, the newly published documents prove that Ukrainian officials lie. Pravda.Ru held a brief interview with Sergei Sokolov, editor-in-chief of the Sovershenno Secretno newspaper.

          Πως θα προστατεύσετε την υγεία σας στα ταξίδια με αεροπλάνο - Πότε αυξάνονται οι κίνδυνοι;   
Αν και δεν έχει καταγραφεί πόσοι άνθρωποι αρρωσταίνουν μόλις βγουν από ένα αεροπλάνο, οι ειδικοί επισημαίνουν ότι...

οι κίνδυνοι για την υγεία αυξάνονται επειδή αυξάνει η ηλικία των ταξιδιωτών και τα μεγάλα αεροσκάφη, όπως το Airbus A380 και το Boeing 777LR, μπορούν να παρατείνουν τη διάρκεια
των πτήσεων στις 18-20 ώρες. Ειδικά η υγεία των ηλικιωμένων ταξιδιωτών είναι πιθανότερο να επιδεινωθεί από τις πολύωρες πτήσεις. Επιπλέον είναι γνωστό ότι σε ανθρώπους κάθε ηλικίας μπορεί να μεταδοθούν λοιμώδη νοσήματα, όπως η γρίπη, το οξύ αναπνευστικό σύνδρομο (ή SARS) και η φυματίωση, καθώς και κάθε είδους ιώσεις του αναπνευστικού, όπως το κοινό κρυολόγημα. Την υγεία των ταξιδιωτών μπορεί να επηρεάσουν διάφοροι παράγοντες, όπως: Οι αλλαγές στην πίεση μέσα στην καμπίνα που μειώνουν την παροχή οξυγόνου. Η ακινησία και η αφυδάτωση, που αυξάνουν τον κίνδυνο θρομβώσεων σε όλους τους ταξιδιώτες και όχι μόνον στους επιβάτες της οικονομικής θέσης. Η επαφή με συνεπιβάτες που πάσχουν από λοιμώδη νοσήματα του αναπνευστικού. Το τζετ λαγκ, που εκδηλώνεται όταν αλλάζει κανείς πολλές χρονικές ζώνες. Ειδικά τα πληρώματα των αεροσκαφών αντιμετωπίζουν και τη χρόνια έκθεση στην κοσμική ακτινοβολία, η οποία συνιστά απειλή και για τις εγκύους. Πώς θα προστατευτείτε Φροντίστε να έχετε κάνει όλα τα εμβόλια, συμπεριλαμβανομένου του αντιγριπικού, ώστε να είστε προστατευμένοι από τις λοιμώδεις νόσους. Πλένετε συχνά και καλά τα χέρια σας και αποφεύγετε να τα βάζετε σε μάτια, μύτη και στόμα. Εάν πάσχετε από καρδιολογικά ή αναπνευστικά προβλήματα, ενδέχεται να παρουσιάσετε συμπτώματα της νόσου των ορέων, λόγω του μεγάλου ύψους, δηλαδή κόπωση, πονοκέφαλο, ζάλη και ναυτία. Ζητήστε συμπληρωματικό οξυγόνο στη διάρκεια της πτήσης. Αποφύγετε ταξίδια μετά από εγχείριση. Αν κάνετε καταδύσεις δεν πρέπει να μπείτε σε αεροπλάνο εάν δεν περάσουν 12 ώρες από μία κατάδυση και 24 ώρες εάν έχετε κάνει περισσότερες από μία καταδύσεις σε μια μέρα. Πρέπει να είστε ιδιαίτερα προσεκτικοί εάν είστε παχύσαρκοι, πάσχετε από καρκίνο, έχετε υποβληθεί πρόσφατα σε εγχείρηση, παίρνετε αντισυλληπτικά από το στόμα ή πάσχετε από διαταραχές που αυξάνουν τον κίνδυνο θρόμβωσης του αίματος. Ίσως χρειαστείτε κάποιο αιμολυτικό φάρμακο, αφού βέβαια συμβουλευτείτε τον γιατρό σας. Είναι χρήσιμο να περπατάτε συχνά, να πίνετε άφθονο νερό και να κινείτε συνέχεια τα πόδια σας. Η έκθεση στην κοσμική ακτινοβολία δεν αποτελεί πρόβλημα ακόμα και για όσους ταξιδεύουν συχνά, με εξαίρεση την περίπτωση της εγκυμοσύνης.

           Νέα διαστημική “ομπρέλα” δορυφορικού ίντερνετ   
Το “πράσινο φως” πρόσβασης στην αμερικανική αγορά έδωσε η Επιτροπή Τηλεπικοινωνιών (FCC) των ΗΠΑ στις υπηρεσίες ίντερνετ που σχεδιάζει να προσφέρει η εταιρεία OneWeb, μέσω ενός δικτύου δορυφόρων. Η OneWeb, χρηματοδότης της οποίας είναι και ο Richard Branson, προετοιμάζεται να προσφέρει υπηρεσίες δορυφορικού ευρυζωνικού ίντερνετ από το 2000, όταν αγόρασε δορυφορικό φάσμα από την SkyBridge. 
Στόχος της εταιρείας είναι να εκτοξεύσει ένα σμήνος 720 δορυφόρων, που θα κινούνται σε μη γεωσύγχρονη τροχιά και θα παρέχουν σε παγκόσμια κλίμακα ίντερνετ υψηλών ταχυτήτων. Με αυτό τον τρόπο, η OneWeb θέλει να παράσχει συνδέσεις σε αγροτικές και δυσπρόσιτες περιοχές, στις οποίες αυτή τη στιγμή είναι δυσχερής η πρόσβαση στο web. 
Μάλιστα, υποστηρίζει πως από το 2002 θα μπορεί να συνδέσει κάθε σχολείο που σήμερα είναι offline, όπως και ότι το 2027 θα έχει γεφυρώσει το ψηφιακό χάσμα. Ανάλογα σχέδια για διαστημικές “ομπρέλες” δορυφορικού ίντερνετ έχουν αρκετές ακόμη εταιρείας, όπως οι Boeing, ViaSat, Telesat και SpaceX, εκπρόσωποι των οποίων έχουν γι’ αυτό τον σκοπό συναντηθεί τους προηγούμενους μήνες με στελέχη της FCC. Σύμφωνα με αξιωματούχο της Επιτροπής, τα σχέδια αυτά βρίσκονται υπό εξέταση, ενώ προβλέπουν σμήνη από 2 έως 4.000 δορυφόρους.
          Chemtrail or Contrail? Pilot films astonishing footage of Dreamliner contrails at 33,000ft (VIDEO)    


https://youtu.be/epa6WxEw1Xk


A pilot has captured incredible footage of contrails billowing from the engines of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner at an altitude of 33,000ft. 
 
Lou Boyer was piloting a Boeing 747 flight from Tokyo to Alaska when he saw the contrails – or ‘chemtrails’ depending on your appetite for conspiracy theories – over eastern Russia.

The Dreamliner was flying towards Asia when Boyer spotted it passing 1000ft below his own aircraft. The pilot described the event as “normal traffic separation on an airway.”

Due to volcanic activity in the area, quite a few flights were on the same route over eastern Russia,” Boyer told RT.com.

The combination of high relative humidity and a nice sunrise gave this contrail a nice deep color as the contrail created its own shadow,” he added.

           Европа получает первые B737 MAX   
Вчера американский самолетостроитель Boeing и норвежская авиакомпания Norwegian торжественно отметили пополнение флота перевозчика двумя первыми самолетами Boeing 737 MAX 8. Таким образом Norwegian стала первой авиакомпанией Европы, получившей самолеты 737 MAX, которые она будет использовать на трансатлантических рейсах между Северной Европой и восточным побережьем США. «Мы с нетерпением ждали поставки наших самолетов Boeing 737 MAX, и мы невероятно рады их сегодняшнему присоединению к нашему флоту, – заявил Бьорн Кьйос (Bjørn Kjos), глава Norwegian. – Мы являемся первой авиакомпанией Европы, которая будет оперировать этими новейшими воздушными судами, а также первой авиакомпанией мира, которая задействует их на рейсах в/из США. Этот самолет позволяет нам открывать новые, ранее необслуживаемые маршруты, и предлагать как американцам, так и европейцам еще более доступные цены на трансатлантические перелеты. Этот самолет также обеспечит наших пассажиров пониженным уровнем шума на борту, одновременно значительно сокращая потребление топлива и выбросы двуокиси углерода». Norwegian является шестым по величине бюджетным авиаперевозчиком мира, выполняющим полеты по 500 маршрутам в 150 пунктов назначения Европы, Северной Африки, Ближнего Востока, Таиланда, США и Карибского бассейна. В настоящее время флот авиакомпании насчитывает более 100 самолетов Boeing 737-800 NG и свыше дюжины Дримлайнеров Boeing 787-8 и 787-9. Вдобавок этот норвежский перевозчик со штаб-квартирой в Осло ожидает поставки 108 самолетов Boeing 737 MAX 8 и 19 авиалайнеров Boeing 787-9. «Самолет Boeing 737 MAX 8 станет серьезным дополнением флота Norwegian, позволив авиакомпании открыть новую главу ее невероятной истории роста в сегменте бюджетных дальнемагистральных перевозок, – заявил президент Boeing Commercial Airplanes Кевин Макаллистер (Kevin McAllister). – Для нас огромная честь, что такой инновационный бренд как Norwegian станет первым европейским перевозчиком, оперирующим 737 MAX, и мы уверены, что этот самолет сыграет ключевую роль в их дальнейшем успехе». Семейство Boeing 737 MAX было создано, чтобы предложить клиентам исключительную производительность, гибкость и эффективность, обеспечивая их более низкими затратами на одно пассажироместо и увеличенной дальностью полета, что позволяет им открывать новые пункты назначения в узкофюзеляжном сегменте. Семейство Boeing 737 MAX построено на базе последних технологий, двигателей CFM International LEAP-1B, винглет Advanced Technology и интерьера Boeing Sky, а также обладает другими улучшениями, призванными обеспечить высочайший уровень эффективности, надежности и пассажирского комфорта в своем сегменте.

           Джон Лихи признал поражение   
Директор по продажам европейского самолетостроительного концерна Airbus SE Джон Лихи (John Leahy) смиренно признает поражение от корпорации Boeing на прошедшем недавно Международном авиасалоне в Ле-Бурже, и подтверждает, что он покинет свою должность после 20 лет работы, которая принесла его компании самолетостроительных заказов на 1,7 трлн. долл. США. Временные рамки ухода г-на Лихи еще не известны, однако во время итоговой пресс-конференции на Парижском авиашоу он заявил, что будет работать над плавной передачей дел своему заместителю Кирану Рао (Kiran Rao). На этой выставке концерн Airbus не представил никаких новых коммерческих самолетов, в отличие от корпорации Boeing, которая вышла на 300 продаж и заказов своего новейшего представителя 737-й программы – самолета Boeing 737 MAX 10.  «Факт в том, что если говорить о новых заказах, то этот год оказался хуже предыдущего, – заявил в ходе брифинга г-н Лихи. – Признаем ли мы, что Boeing продал чуть больше самолетов, чем мы? Да. У каждого есть свои хорошие дни». Как сообщил г-н Лихи, в ходе Парижского авиашоу 2017 Airbus привлек новых самолетостроительных заказов на общую сумму 39,7 млрд. долл. США. В том числе получил твердые заказы на 144 самолета общей стоимостью 18,5 млрд. долл. США и опциональные заказы на 182 самолета совокупной ценой 21,2 млрд. долл. США. Что касается твердых заказов, то «те из них, которые мы можем включить в производственную очередь» примерно соответствуют цифрам Boeing, добавил он. Г-н Киран Рао, который занимает должность исполнительного вице-президента по стратегии и маркетингу в подразделении Airbus SE по выпуску коммерческих самолетов, уже провел переговоры с главой авиакомпании AirAsia Тони Фернандесом (Tony Fernandes), которые завершились подписанием контракта на поставку 14 самолетов A320ceo общей стоимостью 1,4 млрд. долл. США. Однако г-ну Рао будет непросто достичь высот Джона Лихи, который за 20 лет работы в должности коммерческого директора Airbus привлек 15,5 тыс. заказов и увеличил долю европейского самолетостроителя на глобальном самолетостроительном рынке с 18% до фактического паритета с Boeing. Концерн Airbus не сильно тревожат планы его американского конкурента по разработке новой модели среднего сегмента взамен закрытой программы B757 и уходящей B767, сообщил г-н Лихи, повторив, что на данном рынке доля Airbus составляет 80%. «Мы не считаем это серьезной угрозой», – заявил он, спрогнозировав, что разработка этого самолета, уже прозванного B797, обойдется  в 12 млрд. долл. США. В свою очередь г-н Рао уверен, что Boeing «просто зондирует почву», когда говорит, что к 2025 году у него будет революционный самолет, способный остановить продажи A321neo. В реальности же американская корпорация не сможет сделать этот самолет таким дешевым, как рассчитывает, так как 70% расходов на его производство зависит от поставщиков и находится за пределами прямого контроля Boeing. При этом г-н Лихи сообщил, что авиакомпания Emirates «весьма заинтересована» в улучшенной версии сверхбольшого самолета Airbus, предварительно называемого A380plus. По информации некоторых отраслевых источников, Emirates находится на ранней стадии переговоров относительно покупки до 20 самолетов A380 вдобавок к 140, заказанных авиаперевозчиком ранее. Учитывая, что следующее крупное авиашоу пройдет в ноябре этого года в Дубае, который является базой для Emirates, вероятность подписания Airbus этого желанного $9-миллиардного контракта значительно повышается. Однако получить этот заказ будет не так уж и просто, так как президент Emirates Тим Кларк (Tim Clark) ранее озвучил сомнения в способности Airbus сохранить слабо продающуюся программу A380.

Американская самолетостроительная корпорация Boeing пересмотрела в большую сторону свой прогноз спроса на грузовые и пассажирские самолеты на ближайшие 20 лет.Согласно обновленному прогнозу Boeing, в ближайшие два десятилетия отрасли потребуется 41 тыс. 030 новых воздушных судов на общую сумму более 6 трлн. долл. США, что на 4% или 1 тыс. 410 самолетов больше, чем в прогнозе годичной давности. В том числе поставки узкофюзеляжных воздушных судов, таких как Boeing 737 и Airbus A320, должны составить в ближайшие 20 лет 29 тыс. 530 ед., что на 5% больше, чем в предыдущем прогнозе. В то же время спрос на грузовые самолеты составит 920 воздушных судов, что на 1% меньше, чем прогнозировалось годом назад, так как все больше грузов в наши дни перевозится в багажных отсеках широкофюзеляжных пассажирских самолетов, а не на борту грузовых авиалайнеров. Boeing также видит возможности роста в секторе авиационных услуг. По прогнозу корпорации, через 20 лет стоимость этого рынка достигнет 8,5 трлн. долл. США, благодаря среднегодовым темпам роста в 4%. В свою очередь европейский конкурент Boeing – концерн Airbus – ранее в этом месяце опубликовал свой собственный 20-летний прогноз. По сравнению с прошлогодним изданием оценка ожидаемого спроса увеличилась в нем на 6% до 34 тыс. 899 воздушных судов. Корпорация Boeing также уменьшила на символическую величину свой прогноз по поставкам сверхбольших четырехмоторных самолетов, таких как Airbus A380 и Boeing 747-8, а также, вероятно, чтобы «поддеть» конкурента, впервые объединила этих гигантов в одну категорию с большими двухмоторными авиалайнерами, такими как Boeing 777 и A350.Boeing уже давно говорит о том, что «сверхбольшая» категория отмирает в связи с переходом авиакомпаний на двухмоторные самолеты меньшего размера. Оба самолетостроителя ранее были вынуждены сократить производство своих четырехмоторных гигантов. Boeing рассчитывает поставить «лишь горстку» самолетов B747-8. «На самом деле, откровенно говоря, мы изучили спрос на реально большие самолеты, и нам сложно поверить, что Airbus  сможет поставить оставшиеся авиалайнеры A380 из своего портфеля заказов», – заявил в ходе брифинга вице-президент по маркетингу Boeing Commercial Airplanes Рэнди Тинсет (Randy Tinseth). Однако Airbus настаивает, что в связи с перегруженностью аэропортов у двухпалубных самолетов A380 есть будущее, и прогнозирует, пусть и немного понизив оценку, что в ближайшие 20 лет 5% поставок новых воздушных судов, как пассажирских, так и грузовых, придется на категорию сверхбольших самолетов.

          Legislature to Pass Budget Today   
I was actually going to give you all kinds of links and updates but here's all you really need to know - the Dems caved, schools will not be fully-funded and property-rich areas will pay for most of the increases.

Schools will get $7.3B more over the next four years.  This is not enough and is likely to not pass judicial muster for fully funding schools.  After this budget is passed, the Supreme Court will review the part that addresses McCleary and allow the plaintiffs to give their thoughts.  Any ruling on this issue would probably come at the end of the summer.

Last year, McCleary plaintiffs said $5.6 billion needed just for next school year. $7.3b over 4 years won't cut it

- Property taxes will go up in Seattle/King County - by a lot.

Rough numbers, Seattle will see $440/yr increase in property taxes for average house, Ranker says
-There will be a cap on the per dollar amount that local levies can ask for.

From Representative Zack Hutchins:

Initiative 1351
Staffing enrichments provided in the prototypical funding formula under Initiative 1351 are recodified in a different chapter of the RCWs. If additional staffing units are funded in future operating budgets, those units will then become a part of basic education.

Accountability
By 2019-20, school districts must provide separate accounting of state and local revenues and expenditures data. The State Auditor must conduct regular financial audits to ensure districts are using local revenues in compliance with this act. 

Categorical programs
·         Career and Technical Education and Skills Center Programs’ class sizes reduced
·         Highly Capable Program allocation increased from 2.314 to 5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Additional Learning Assistance Program allocation for high poverty schools
·         Special Education allocation increased from 12.7 to 13.5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Increased Transitional Bilingual Program instruction in middle and high schools by two hours

Another tax change in deal: B&O tax rate for all manufacturing comes down to Boeing's preferential rate, Ranker says.

Because much of the McCleary plan doesn't kick in for some time, Billig said lawmakers can tweak things if problems w/ plan.

On the public not being able to weigh in or even see the real actual budget in a timely manner:

No income tax. No new capital gains tax.  No new carbon tax.  No increases in business taxes. 

WASHINGTON’S PARAMOUNT DUTY STATEMENT ON PROPOSED EDUCATION FUNDING PLAN

While the legislature's proposed education funding plan includes a significant increase in funding for our public schools, it falls well short of what is required by the courts and the constitution. 

This deal runs a serious risk of failing to meet those requirements, failing to meet the pressing needs in classrooms across the state, and relies on unstable funding sources. If this deal passes, it may not mean the end of the McCleary case - this year, this decade, or this generation.

In 2016 Washington's Paramount Duty estimated the cost of fully funding public education - specifically, the basic education promised by the legislature in 2009 in bills ESSB 2261 and 2776 - to be about $8 billion a biennium. Legal counsel for the McCleary plaintiffs estimated the sum was $10 billion a biennium, with at least $5.6 billion needed just for the next school year alone in order to meet requirements for materials and operations, teacher salaries, and smaller class sizes.

The deal legislators reached this week would provide an extra $7.3 billion over the next four years. This is less than half the money required to fulfill the constitutional and court-enforced right to a fully and amply funded education.

This deal also undermines the voter-approved initiative to reduce class sizes, providing that smaller class sizes would only become part of a basic education requirement if the legislature chooses to fund it. This is circular logic, and flies in the face of evidence and common sense that students learn better and have all their needs met when teachers can provide more attention to them in a classroom with fewer students.

We have already heard from parents and teachers across the state who are concerned that the sweeping changes to teacher pay would make it even more difficult to attract and retain good teachers in our schools. Capping teacher pay at $90,000, as well as the elimination of the "staff mix" model and limits on bargaining, combine to limit the ability of teachers to make a living and remain as residents of our own communities.

The McCleary case was never about reforms to the way teachers are paid. We see no reason for these risky changes to be made, certainly not with so much haste and so little public scrutiny.

We are also troubled by the methods used to pay for this half measure. The Supreme Court held that education funding must be regular and dependable. A property tax increase does not meet that standard, especially when the legislature maintains a 1% cap in future years on property taxes. This has the effect of eroding the property tax revenues that go to schools, meaning it's no longer regular or dependable.

The legislature's decision to limit local levies is another risky move. If the legislature fails to adequately fund basic education, or if districts' costs rise above what legislators are willing to pay, those districts will be facing significant cuts, undermining the intent of the McCleary decision.

More importantly, using the property tax to fund schools is regressive and hurts the poor and the working families for whom a public education is particularly important. Many families will be unable to pay these costs, especially at a time when housing costs in many Washington cities are rising fast.

Washington State is home to some of the world's richest individuals - and yet we have the most regressive tax system in the United States. The legislature's decision to make poor people pay without asking the rich or big businesses to pay more is unconscionable, particularly when the same budget deal opens millions in new tax breaks for business.

We understand that legislators are worried about a government shutdown. We are too. On the other hand, it is hard to believe that avoiding a shutdown now is worth the price of continuing to underfund our schools and make poor people pay more in housing costs for years to come.

Students across Washington State are asked to attend schools that don't have heat in the winter, that don't have new textbooks, that don't have a full-time nurse on duty, that don't have librarians or new books, or counselors to help guide them to college or a career. It's not clear that this deal will fully address these and other urgent needs, particularly since there are no provisions for capital expenditures in this budget. We urge the legislature to urgently address capital requirements for schools by passing a bill that provides the $2 billion necessary to ensure children across Washington attend schools that are safe, secure and have the capacity to accommodate the lower class sizes that voters have voted for and that we know provide a better learning environment for all students. 

Legislators may be exhausted and tired after a few weeks of work. But parents are exhausted and tired after years of unpaid work to plug the gaps in funding for our underfunded public schools caused by legislators’ dereliction of their duty. We call on legislators to reject this deal and fix it to address the issues we have identified above. If they pass this education funding plan, we will have no choice but to urge the Supreme Court to reject it and order the legislature to do better.

          Siah Hwee Ang on China and the US addressing their beef, the growing global population, Asia's cost challenges, the return of the conglomerate, protectionism vs 'what's appropriate', Japan steps on to the Belt Road...gingerly, and more   

Today's Top 10 is a guest post looking at the latest international business happenings from Professor Siah Hwee Ang, the BNZ Chair in Business in Asia at Victoria University.

As always, we welcome your additions in the comments below or via email to david.chaston@interest.co.nz.

And if you're interested in contributing the occasional Top 10 yourself, contact gareth.vaughan@interest.co.nz.

See all previous Top 10s here.

1. China and US smoothing things out

China has lifted the 13-year import ban on some US beef.

Although the lift only applies to specific types of beef, the announcement represents another achievement under the Sino-US 100-day action plan to boost bilateral economic ties.

China banned imports of most US beef since 2003, after the spread of mad cow disease. Before the outbreak, the US was the largest supplier of beef for China.

China consumed 8 million tons of beef last year, and is the fastest growing consumer of beef.

The lifting of the ban represents competition for other suppliers of beef to China.

The world will be a better place if China and US can smooth things out. But there are implications for competition out there.

2. World population continues to grow

The report “World Population Prospects: The 2017 Revision” was published by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs last week. It suggests that the global population will reach 9.8 billion by the year 2050.

The revised report was a response to high rates of population growth in Africa and India.

The UN report predicts, the populations of 26 African countries will double between 2017 and 2050.

Nigeria, in particular is projected to surpass the U.S. as the third most populous country shortly before 2050.

China, the most populous country in the world for a while now, might see its population size overtaken by that of India by 2024.

The world population grows by around 83 million people each year. This in itself presents a lot of challenges around issues such as food security and sustainability.

3. Asia is attractive for expatriates, but is also starting to present cost challenges

The latest survey results on the cost of living for expatriates show that Asian cities make up 5 of the top 10 most expensive cities.

Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul, and Shanghai are in the Asian cities that are becoming costly cities to live in.

The survey, conducted by HR firm Mercer, compares global prices for more than 200 items.

Three other Asian cities are in the top 25: Beijing (11), Osaka (21) and Taipei (25).

The north Asian cities of Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei have risen up the ranking significantly since the previous survey.

Asia has provided excellent employment opportunities in the last decade. In many cases with competitive salaries.

But have rising costs and newly-upskilled Asian residents brought about the end of this golden era?

The window is indeed closing for expatriates, but doors are still open for those seeking to establish employment in Asia.

4. Another milestone for China

Just last week, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index included China’s A-shares as part of its portfolio.

The index was created by Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) and is designed to measure equity market performance in global emerging markets.

The agreement to admit mainland-listed stocks, thereby allowing them to be traded by foreigners, comes after China’s three failed attempts at expanding its global market influence.

Analysts have said that China’s inclusion on the Emerging Markets Index could lead to as much as US$12 billion of capital inflows. This is because many overseas investors measure the performance of their portfolios against MSCI indexes and are obliged to buy shares in them.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission stated that the inclusion demonstrates international investors’ confidence in a stable Chinese economy with better prospects and in the steadiness of China’s financial market.

MSCI said the move has “broad support” from international institutional investors and was the result of a loosening of restrictions enacted by China on foreign ownership of ‘A’ shares yuan-denominated stock in mainland China-based companies. Ownership of the shares had once been limited to mainlanders.

5. Welcome back, conglomerates

Last week, Amazon Inc. spent US$14 billion on the purchase of grocery chain Whole Foods Market Inc.

The purchase brings disruption to the US grocery chain sector.

Whole Foods’ 460 stores will run head-to-head with Wal-Mart’s 4,700 stores.

Last year, Wal-Mart bought online retailer Jet.com in a move towards using e-commerce as a strategy.

The latest acquisition represents the challenge that brick-and-mortar-only and ecommerce-only companies face.

Price wars as a result of the increasing number of players and rising costs are forcing both sets of companies to look to more than one way of reaching out to customers.

This has led to heated battles between these companies.

We are bearing witness to the return of conglomerates, and high levels of intensity of rivalry as large conglomerates collide.

6. Protectionism at its prime? Or is it all about industry structure?

Airbus and Boeing have been involved in a 13-year World Trade Organisation (WTO) battle over illegal state aid.

Most recently, the WTO’s compliance panel has rejected several EU claims that the US had failed to withdraw all illegal subsidies to Boeing.

The WTO found all but one of the 29 issues highlighted by the EU to be in compliance with global trade rules.

Both sides are likely to appeal against parts of Friday’s ruling. That would take the EU case to the WTO’s appellate body, which is already considering a separate US case over state aid to Airbus.

Though there seems to be no winner from this the latest round, one can argue that it is ideal for both parties to stick to the status quo for the time being, rather than to lose a battle that could costs hundreds of millions.

Overall, Airbus maintained that illegal state support for Boeing had cost it roughly $100bn in sales over time.

These disputes raise questions over what constitutes protectionism and what’s considered appropriate as part of an industry structure.

Aircraft businesses are government-owned/linked, which also means it makes little sense to think that the owners cannot get involved. How does this differ from engagements by other state-owned or state-linked enterprises in the international business arena?

On a more fundamental level, to what extent do we allow governments to participate in business?

7. Japan starting to play on Belt Road Initiative … with conditions

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has announced that his government is ready to cooperate with China on the Belt and Road Initiative, but only under the right conditions.

Previously Japan, along with India had indicated they were not keen to get involved in the China-initiated project.

Japan’s involvement is contingent on the projects adhering to international norms.

Abe emphasized that it is critical for infrastructure to be open to use by all, and to be developed through transparent and fair procurement. Projects must also be economically viable and the debt sustainable.

Given the strained bilateral relationship that Japan and China have had in recent times, the slight shift in Japan’s stance represents a significant move to smooth the relationship. It also shows a willingness to continue to engage with Asia more deeply, and to avoid being left behind.

8. Opening the online floodgates for foreign participation in India

Despite being a very technology savvy country, the Indian market is hardly an easy one for foreign companies.

Only since last year has the country allowed foreign companies to sell groceries directly to consumers, on the condition that the produce and processed foods are sourced locally.

Due to this limited window of opportunity, only major players have been able to enter the markets.

The latest one is Amazon.com Inc., who has committed to investing around US$500 million over the next five years to build a nationwide network to stock and deliver groceries.

Nonetheless, the Indian government is working on streamlining the process of foreign direct investment into the South Asian country.

Competition can be intense, and in many cases already is intense: large markets are full of strong local players seeking to defend their turf from foreign players.

9. The yuan makes another move

The renminbi weakened 6.5% against the US dollar last year, its worst year ever.

But late last year, China tightened capital controls to curb downward pressure on the currency. That effort has largely succeeded, with the renminbi appreciating 1.2% in 2017.

Late last month, China’s central bank changed the way it guides the renminbi exchange rate, a move designed to enhance the government’s ability to prevent renminbi depreciation at a time when authorities are still concerned about capital flight.

In the recently revised formula, dealers will incorporate a “counter-cyclical adjustment factor” in their quotes, according to a statement on the website of the China Foreign Exchange Trading System.

The move will hedge against pro-cyclical fluctuation in market sentiment and alleviate the potential for ‘herd behaviour’ in the foreign exchange market.

The People’s Bank of China permits the US dollar’s value against the renminbi to fluctuate by 2% above or below a so-called “central parity rate” published each morning, also known as the midpoint or fixing. The midpoint is ostensibly formulated by compiling quotes from a group of dealer banks, but the price is understood to be largely determined by the central bank.

10. Shipping is back to business

The shipping industry has been in some trouble for many years now.

Container shipping, which accounts for 95% of movements of manufactured goods, went into a state of limbo when Hanjin Shipping of South Korea went bankrupt.

Lots of cargo was stranded at sea.

Since then, the industry has consolidated.

Freight rates went down at the same time. This has led to an intensification in competition. Containers, typically 20 or 40 feet long are increasingly being used for inland activities.

A.P. Moller Maersk A/S sold 70,000 of these containers last year alone. Many such containers are used in the construction of buildings and houses.

Signs over the last few months suggest that demand is finally growing faster than capacity.

The world cannot afford for shipping industry to suffer, as the ripple effect extends to trade. It looks like we’re set for a turnaround.

          Comment on Almost Daily Gnuz! by frugalchariot   
Wasting money on military iterations was best summed back in 2016 by a US Navy Veteran named Will Thomas who said, in response to the notion that weaponry should be increased, that our nukes should be updated and 'modernized', etc.: <blockquote>“I don’t think we should be spending that much money on weapons we can’t afford and that we can never use. We should be using that money for affordable housing and healthcare and education and job training. We shouldn’t be putting it in the back pockets of Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, and Boeing.” </blockquote> I couldn't agree more. AFAIC, the "defense" budget could be reduced by, say, $500 billion per year, and I'd be the first to applaud. The last military conflict worth fighting ended on September 2, 1945. Every military excursion since then has been idiotic. Sadly, the apelike subspecies aka humans has never proven smart enough to comprehend, much less act. My view on the military remains the same as it's been for at least fifty years: <a href="https://frugalchariot.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/wage-peace-not-war/" rel="nofollow"><strong>"Wage Peace, Not War!"</strong></a> (See also <a href="https://frugalchariot.wordpress.com/2016/04/07/wage-peace-not-war-part-ii-defense-spending/" rel="nofollow">"Wage Peace, Not War Part II: "Defense" Spending.</a></strong></a>) I do realize that dicks all over the world would have to shrivel, but what the hell. Who would notice?

          Authentic Models Boeing 314 Dixie Clipper   

Unrivalled Luxury

Authentic Models' Boeing 314 Dixie Clipper is a replica of a truly legendary leviathan. The first Boeing 314 was unleashed by Pan America in the late 1930s, and it represented the ultimate in luxury aircraft. So luxurious in fact that it was complete with staterooms, sleeping berths and a dining salon! Like an albatross, it seemed nearly impossible that it could even take off, skimming waves at increasing speeds with its 152 ft wingspan, and revving up its four engines. An astonishing plane, boarding from a dock or using a ship's tender was the 1930s epitome of class, and this replica would make a highly classy gift or piece of aviation decor.

Detailed Construction

Handmade with stunning attention to detail, the assembly of this plane has been made with silk fabric stretched over the lightweight airplane frame. It also includes incredible detailed engines and propellers, and would make a wonderful present for someone with an interest in aviation. The shipment also includes a stand.

Romance of Flight

Presenting a wonderful collection of museum quality artifacts dating from early-to-mid century flight, Authentic Models have created a selection of desktop and space-suspended aviation models to celebrate the beauty and triumphs of air travel. From the early barnstormers and mail planes to the forerunners of today's main airliners, the romance of flight has captivated so many. With world-spanning air routes connecting people from across the world in a matter of days or even hours, aeroplanes have created a revolution in travel.

          CHIŃSKA MAŁPA I GŁUPI TYGRYS    
Prezydentura Donalda Trumpa nie przyniesie przełomu. Nie zmieni globalnych relacji na korzyść Ameryki i nie wpłynie na zmniejszenie światowych zagrożeń. Donald Trump nie tylko nie odbuduje mocarstwowej pozycji USA, lecz swoją krótkowzroczną, dyletancką polityką wzmocni jej największego wroga.
Kardynalnym błędem Donalda Trumpa nie jest koncepcja odbudowy stosunków z Rosją. Nie jest nim również upatrywanie w Putinie sprzymierzeńca w walce z terroryzmem, przyzwolenie na okupację Krymu czy uczynienie z kremlowskiego watażki głównego gracza na Bliskim Wschodzie. Te groźne kryteria, mające ułatwić ludziom Trumpa robienie interesów z Rosją, są zaledwie konsekwencją znacznie poważniejszej herezji.
Błędem, który wyklucza Trumpa z grona wielkich graczy i wizjonerów politycznych, jest przekonanie, że można „rozegrać” Rosję przeciwko Chinom i na odbudowie relacji z Putinem doprowadzić do osłabienia Państwa Środka.
Jakiekolwiek motywy przypisać działaniom nowego przywódcy USA i jakkolwiek oceniać infantylizm jego poglądów na świat, to stanowisko ujawnia zatrważającą ignorancję polityczną i już dziś pozwala przewidzieć fiasko amerykańskiej strategii.
Gdy w jednym z niedawnych wywiadów, Donald Trump przyznał, że „chciałby wykorzystać wszelkie dostępne środki, aby zbalansować stosunki z Moskwą i Pekinem” i zapewnił, że „dopóki nie zauważy zmiany w podejściu Pekinu do szkodzących gospodarce USA praktyk walutowych i handlowych nie będzie się trzymał porozumienia z ChRL z roku 1979”, ujawnił przywiązanie do najgroźniejszego zabobonu politycznego XX wieku. Jego ciepłe deklaracje pod adresem Putina -"Jeśli się porozumiemy i Rosja faktycznie nas wesprze, jeżeli ktoś robi naprawdę wspaniałe rzeczy, dlaczego utrzymywać sankcje?” oraz naiwna wiara, że umizgi do pułkownika KGB stworzą przeciwwagę dla relacji z Chinami, są dla mnie dostatecznym argumentem, by odmówić Trumpowi miana poważnego polityka.   
Genezy fałszywej wizji, w której Rosję można „rozegrać” przeciwko Chinom należy doszukiwać się w koncepcji wyrażonej onegdaj przez Winstona Churchilla - o gotowości „sprzymierzenia się z diabłem, żeby tylko wypędzić szatana”. Zaledwie „diabłem” miał być wówczas Stalin, odpowiedzialny za śmierć blisko 200 milionów istnień. W opinii przywódców „wolnego świata” stanowił on mniejsze zagrożenie od „szatana” – Hitlera, winnego zagładzie prawie 60 milionów ludzi.
Współczesna geopolityka stanowi prostą kontynuację tamtej mitologii i wspiera na szalbierskich dogmatach ustanowionych w czasach Jałty. Nie ma w niej miejsca na racjonalną metodologię, która uwzględniałaby rzeczywiste relacje „diabła i szatana” ani na prawidłową ocenę głównej broni światowego komunizmu - strategii podstępu i dezinformacji.
Wprawdzie wielu dzisiejszych „politologów” i tzw. ekspertów odrzuca tradycyjne podziały i próbuje deliberować o „nowym porządku” i  „innym wymiarze globalizacji”, to fundamentem relacji światowych nadal pozostają interesy „świata Zachodu” i interesy „reszty” -zdominowanej przez rosyjskie lub chińskie wpływy. Nadal też główna linia konfrontacji dotyczy starcia tego, co nazywamy „wartościami Zachodu” z bezideową, antycywilizacyjną siłą, za którą skrywa się rządza panowania nad światem.
Nonsensowna koncepcja „rozgrywania” rzekomych sprzeczności chińsko-sowieckich/rosyjskich, jest obecna w polityce amerykańskiej od kilkudziesięciu lat i w mniejszym lub większym stopniu kształtowała działania każdej ekipy prezydenckiej. Ponieważ stanowi główną przyczynę osłabienia mocarstwowej pozycji Ameryki i niewspółmiernego do realiów wzrostu znaczenia Chin – nigdy nie zostanie uznana za fałszywego bożka. Wymagałoby to rozstania z totalną mistyfikacją „upadku komunizmu” oraz przyjęcia obrazoburczej wizji o wspólnocie chińsko-rosyjskich interesów.
Na skutek rozlicznych błędów amerykańskiego wywiadu i wytężonej pracy agentury sowieckiej, doprowadzono do odrzucenia, a nawet ośmieszenia metodologii proponowanej przez Anatolija Golicyna – jedynego analityka, który bezbłędnie przewidział skutki wdrożenia sowieckiej strategii podstępu i dezinformacji oraz (co dla Polaków powinno być szczególnie ważne) powstania tworu zwanego III RP:
„Utworzenie „Solidarności” i początkowy okres jej działania jako związek zawodowy, może być odczytywane jako eksperymentalna, pierwsza faza polskiej „odnowy”. Mianowanie Jaruzelskiego, wprowadzenie stanu wojennego, oraz zawieszenie „Solidarności”, stanowi drugą fazę, przeznaczoną na wprowadzenie tego ruchu pod ścisłą kontrolę oraz zapewnienie stanu politycznej konsolidacji. W trzeciej fazie można oczekiwać [pisane w 1984 r.], że zostanie uformowany rząd koalicyjny, skupiający przedstawicieli partii komunistycznej, reprezentantów reaktywowanej „Solidarności”, oraz Kościoła. W tym rządzie mogłoby się znaleźć również kilku tak zwanych „liberałów” – pisał Golicyn w „Nowe kłamstwa w miejsce starych”.
Gdyby po roku 1989 istniał w Polsce rząd  reprezentujący rzeczywiste interesy narodowe, musiałby odrzucić fałszywy obraz  „transformacji ustrojowej”, mitologię „okrągłych stołów” itp. narzędzi sowieckich knowań i dla realizacji polskich interesów przyjąć optykę Golicyna oraz proponowaną przezeń metodologię, w której uwzględnienie roli dezinformacji odgrywa zasadniczą rolę.
Przypomnę, że jeden z koronnych argumentów Golicyna (doskonale uzasadnionych) na realizację długofalowej strategii komunistycznej dotyczył „rozłamu chińsko-sowieckiego, który umożliwił tym dwóm komunistycznym potęgom pomyślnie przeprowadzić „strategię nożyczek”, to znaczy prowadzić podwójną politykę zagraniczną, w ścisłym wzajemnym skoordynowaniu, utajonym przed Zachodem i które nie zostało przez Zachód rozpoznane.
Trump i jego administracja nie muszą nawet wiedzieć, kim był Golicyn i jakie tezy propagował. Tym bardziej obca będzie dla nich myśl o wspólnej chińsko-rosyjskiej grze i długofalowej operacji dezinformacyjnej. To stan naturalny, w którym ofiary własnych błędów i fałszywych koncepcji politycznych są utwierdzane w nieświadomości.
Już w latach 50. ubiegłego wieku, zastępy sowieckich agentów pracowały nad utrwalaniem kłamstw na temat konfliktów chińsko-sowieckich, istnienia „ruchów odśrodkowych” i tzw. teorii konwergencji. Dziś zaś, pochodne tych mitów oraz niepodważalna wiara w „uśmiercenie komunizmu” korzystają ze szczelnej osłony światowej sieci agenturalnej, z pomocy tysięcy paputczikówi użytecznych idiotów.
Jednym z dogmatów wychodowanych na gruncie nowej mitologii, jest przeświadczenie, że z Chinami należy prowadzić współpracę gospodarczą, inwestować w tamtejszy rynek i korzystać z taniej siły roboczej. Motorem tych obłędnych dążeń jest wyłącznie chęć zysku, przewyższająca swoim znaczeniem nawet instynkt samozachowawczy.
Drugi z mitów mówi, że pomiędzy Chinami a Rosją (wcześniej Związkiem Sowieckim) istnieje stan wrogości i rywalizacji, którą można wykorzystać do zneutralizowania chińskiego zagrożenia. Przyjęcie tej mitologii doprowadziło już do wytworzenia potężnej dezinformacji geopolitycznej i zmiany koncentracji sił strategicznych Zachodu.
Zamiast traktować Chiny i Rosję, jako państwa prowadzące wspólną i spójną politykę antycywilizacyjną, dążące wespół do zniszczenia porządku światowego, przyjęto irracjonalne założenie o odmienności celów oraz możliwości wykorzystania rzekomych antynomii.
Kompletnie nieznana jest koncepcja, w której przypadek Państwa Środka miałby dowodzić, jak dalece komunizm jest w stanie rozstać się ze swoją domniemaną ideologią i partyjnymi dogmatami, byle zapewnić sobie przetrwanie i doprowadzić państwa „wolnego świata” do ekonomicznego uzależnienia. Tzw. ekspansja gospodarcza Chin (najmocniejszy nośnik chińskiej agentury) oraz otwarcie przed państwami kapitalistycznymi ogromnego rynku inwestycji, służyło przede wszystkim asymilacji komunizmu, ,„oswojeniu” z nim partnerów biznesowych oraz tak głębokim zaangażowaniu ich we współpracę, by zrelatywizować i zignorować rzeczywiste oblicze zbrodniczego reżimu. Jeśli dziś, ów „wolny świat” nie wzdryga się przed korzystaniem z darmowej pracy milionów chińskich niewolników i więźniów politycznych, jest to efektem największego zwycięstwa komunistycznej strategii podstępu i dezinformacji.
Wytworzenie obszarów wolnego rynku, przy jednoczesnym zachowaniu twardych, totalitarnych metod terroru wobec własnego społeczeństwa, świadczy o dostosowawczym charakterze chińskiego komunizmu i wskazuje na potencjalne kierunki jego przeobrażeń.
Ponieważ Rosja prezentuje typ „komunizmu utajnionego”, podczas gdy Chiny kontynuują model „jawnego komunizmu”, tego rodzaju układ, przy wspólnocie celów obu państw, stwarza wręcz doskonałe warunki do prowadzenia globalnych gier politycznych, symulowania konfliktów, rozgrywania potencjalnych sojuszników i neutralizacji wrogów. Efekt ten jest dodatkowo wzmacniany poprzez ukazywanie rzekomego kontrastu - agresywnych i „nieprzewidywalnych” działań Rosji wobec zachowawczych, niekonfrontacyjnych zachowań Chin. Jeśli nawet w relacjach chińsko - rosyjskich, Moskwa jest kłopotliwym petentem i bywa traktowana przez Pekin jak młodszy i niezbyt rozgarnięty brat, w niczym nie zmienia to wspólnoty celów. W tym tandemie, Chińczycy dawno przejęli inicjatywę i od ponad dekady narzucają własne, niespieszne tempo.
Koniec pozorów i finał gry nastąpi wówczas, gdy Państwo Środka zarzuci dostatecznie szeroką sieć ekonomiczno-agenturalnych uzależnień i za pieniądze Zachodu zbuduje przewagę militarną nad głównym wrogiem - Stanami Zjednoczonymi. Chińczycy doskonale pamiętają, że „mądry generał zdobywa żywność od wroga”.
Przyjęcie przez Trumpa fałszywej perspektywy relacji chińsko-rosyjskich musi mieć negatywne implikacje. Nie da się wygrać wojny, traktując wroga jako sprzymierzeńca i prowadząc ją bez rozpoznania ukrytych mechanizmów i rzeczywistych sojuszy.
Dla zobrazowania skali zagrożeń, wskaże tylko jeden przykład.
Przed kilkoma laty działalność Edwarda Snowdena pogrążyła administrację Obamy i obnażyła słabość USA w starciu z sojuszem rosyjsko-chińskim. Informacje przekazane przez agenta (zwerbowanego prawdopodobnie przez służby chińskie) otworzyły przed kremlowskimi kagebistami ogromne możliwości wpływu na światową politykę bezpieczeństwa i ustawiły reżim Putina w pozycji  silnego gracza i partnera. Chiny i Rosja - dwa państwa sterujące światowym terroryzmem i przestępczością internetową, uzyskały wówczas potężne narzędzia w rozgrywce z USA. Nie tylko z powodu ograniczenia możliwości rozpoznania środowisk terrorystycznych (z których wiele korzysta z moskiewskich inspiracji) czy z uwagi na utrudnienia w inwigilacji przestępców internetowych – wspieranych z kolei przez Chiny. Już w roku 2012 Rosja i Chiny, wykorzystując histerię wokół ACTA dążyły do odebrania pozarządowej organizacji ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) kontroli nad przyznawaniem nazw domen internetowych, ustalania ich struktury i ogólnego nadzoru nad działaniem serwerów DNS. Domagały się również oddania kontroli nad bezpieczeństwem w sieci organizacjom międzynarodowym, co w praktyce prowadziłoby do  wprowadzenia cenzury, bowiem kompetencje działającej w USA ICANN, miałyby trafić w ręce jednej z instytucji ONZ, w której Rosja ma ogromne wpływy.
Propozycje rosyjsko-chińskie, złożone podczas konferencji w Dubaju zostały wówczas skutecznie zablokowane, jednak wiele wskazuje, że wkrótce dojdzie do wznowienia tej samej akcji. Argument o amerykańskiej inwigilacji (ugruntowany na podstawie doniesień Snowdena) jest bowiem skutecznie wykorzystywany w rozgrywkach politycznych i posłużył już jako parawan do rozbudowy realnego systemu nadzoru nad siecią internetową oraz wdrożenia dodatkowych narzędzi inwigilacji. Nazywając Snowdena „bohaterem działającym w interesie społeczeństwa” i „obrońcą wolności” – Rosjanie zakpili z Ameryki i cynicznie oszukali światową opinię publiczną. Efektem działalności tego agenta było bowiem wzmocnienie pozycji Rosji i Chin, głównie w obszarze dezinformacji i wojny cybernetycznej.
Trump, który w obronie własnych interesów jest gotów podważać intencje i kompetencje wywiadu USA, stanie się wdzięcznym obiektem rozgrywek w tym newralgicznym obszarze. Ile ataków chińskich i rosyjskich hakerów zostało przeprowadzonych dzięki wykorzystaniu „casusu Snowdena”, wiedzą tylko sprawcy. Za prezydentury Trumpa, będzie to stokroć łatwiejsze.
Innym z negatywnych skutków „wykorzystania” Rosji w rozgrywce z Chinami, jest pomysł traktowania stolicy terroryzmu, jako sprzymierzeńca w walce z tzw. ISIS.
To, co (słusznie) zarzucano Obamie, gdy pozwolił Putinowi zdobyć przyczółki na Bliskim Wschodzie, jego następca  gotów uczynić głównym celem swojej polityki zagranicznej.  Koncepcja wspólnych działań rosyjsko-amerykańskich, wymierzonych w „islamski terroryzm”, swoją logiką przypomina zamiar gaszenia pożaru przy pomocy kanistra benzyny, zaś konsekwencje tego szaleństwa okażą się rujnujące dla świata Zachodu. 
Rosja, która od lat 20. ubiegłego wieku organizuje i wspiera wszelkie działania terrorystyczne, posiadła zdolność mistrzowskiego rozgrywania tej karty. Historycy i politolodzy będą się kiedyś głowili – jak to możliwe, że państwo, którego służby podkładały ładunki wybuchowe pod bloki mieszkalne własnych obywateli, które zorganizowało zamach smoleński, wysłało terrorystów na Ukrainę, zamordowało 300 pasażerów Boeinga, skierowało komanda Kadyrowa do USA oraz urządziło krwawy najazd „imigrantów” na Europę, mogło być w XXI wieku traktowane jako „gwarant procesów pokojowych” i uznawane za „sojusznika w wojnie z islamskim terroryzmem”?  
Trump i jego administracja z pewnością nie zadają sobie takich pytań, dlatego skutkiem ich obłędnej polityki będzie umocnienie hegemonii Rosji na Bliskim Wschodzie i coraz silniejsze szantażowanie „wolnego świata” wizją  „zagrożeń terrorystycznych”.  Ulokowanie FSB w roli sojusznika Ameryki ( a zapewne też państw natowskich) w walce z terroryzmem oraz dostęp do obszaru decyzyjnego w sprawach bezpieczeństwa światowego, staną się bezcennym łupem tandemu Rosja- Chiny.
Nie wykluczam, że na potrzeby tej odsłony strategii podstępu i dezinformacji, Rosja i Chiny mogą nawet upozorować jakiś konflikt lub doprowadzić do spektakularnych  sporów. „Strategia nożyczek” sprowadza się zawsze do symulowania rozbieżnych interesów, generowania sztucznych waśni oraz pozorowanej gry „dobra” ze „złem”. Jak dalece ta gra będzie prowadzona, będzie zależało od podatności Trumpa oraz ceny, jaką zechce zapłacić za rosyjską „pomoc”. Im bardziej amerykański prezydent będzie wierzył, że „przyciągając” Rosję, może osłabić Chiny, tym lepszą robotę będzie wykonywał na rzecz bandyckiego duetu.  
Ludziom, dla których logika rozgrywek rosyjsko-chińskich, jest tematem z pogranicza „teorii spiskowych”, warto przypomnieć słowa generała George Pattona. Tego wybitnego dowódcę rozmaici głupcy chcą dziś porównywać do postaci nominowanych przez Trumpa. Tymczasem Patton, nie tylko rozumiał wagę komunistycznego zagrożenia, ale doskonale potrafił uchwycić i scharakteryzować „genetyczną wspólnotę” Rosjan i Chińczyków:  
Problem w zrozumieniu Rosjanina jest taki, że nie bierzemy pod uwagę faktu że on nie jest Europejczykiem, ale Azjatą i dlatego myśli pokrętnie. My nie możemy zrozumieć Rosjanina bardziej niż Chińczyka czy Japończyka i od kiedy mam z nimi do czynienia, nie miałem żadnego szczególnego pożądania zrozumienia ich poza obliczeniami jak dużo ołowiu lub stali trzeba zużyć, aby ich zabić. W dodatku, poza innymi cechami charakterystycznymi dla Azjatów, Rosjanie nie mają szacunku dla ludzkiego życia i są sukinsynami, barbarzyńcami i pijakami.(...)
Dzisiaj powinniśmy powiedzieć Rosjanom, że mają iść w cholerę, zamiast ich słuchać, kiedy nam mówią, że mamy się cofnąć. To my powinniśmy im mówić, że jeśli im się nie podoba, niech idą w pi..., i wydać im wojnę. Niestety niektórzy z naszych przywódców są po prostu cholernymi durniami i nie mają pojęcia o historii Rosji".

          O WALCE DIABŁA Z SZATANEM    
Józef Mackiewicz w „Zwycięstwie prowokacji” przypominał - „Polityka Zachodu podczas wojny kierowała się względami narzuconymi jej przez sojusz z Sowietami; polityka Zachodu po wojnie kieruje się względami narzuconymi jej przez chęć pokojowej koegzystencji z Sowietami.
Do tej trafnej konkluzji autora „Drogi donikąd”, moglibyśmy dziś dopisać – „Polityka Zachodu po upadku Sowietów kieruje się względami narzuconymi jej przez chęć kooperacji ekonomicznej i agenturalnej oraz wolę zachowania spokoju – za każdą cenę”.
Dla nas - Polaków oznacza to, że doświadczenia lat 1939, 1945 i 1989, muszą być postrzegane jako historyczna przestroga. Kolejna data w polskiej historii nie przyniesie przełomu w łańcuchu dyplomatycznych łajdactw, zdrady i zawiedzionych nadziej. Żadna z „zachodnich demokracji” nie będzie umierać za Polskę, tak jak dziś nikt nie chce nadstawiać głowy za wolną Ukrainę.
Zachód nigdy nie dokonał korekty polityki wobec ZSRR-Rosji, nie wyciągnął wniosków z najbardziej rażących błędów i nie zdobył się na rewizję ładu jałtańskiego.
Za rozpętanie II wojny światowej i ludobójstwo katyńskie, za bandyckie wysiedlenie ponad dwóch milionów Polaków i zbrodnie dokonywane pod okupacją sowiecką – „wolny świat” przyznał Sowietom miano sojusznika w walce z Hitlerem i namaścił Stalina na sprzymierzeńca. Pozwolił również, by sowieccy zbrodniarze zalegalizowali okupację blisko połowy państw europejskich i na długie półwiecze ustanowili „ruski ład” na obszarze „wyzwolonym” przez Armię Czerwoną.
Postawę Zachodu wobec Sowietów wyznaczyły wówczas słowa Churchilla - o gotowości „sprzymierzenia się z diabłem, żeby tylko wypędzić szatana”. Zaledwie „diabłem” miał być Stalin, odpowiedzialny za śmierć blisko 200 milionów istnień. W opinii przywódców „wolnego świata” stanowił on mniejsze zagrożenie od „szatana” – Hitlera, winnego zagładzie prawie 60 milionów ludzi.
Gdy „diabeł” wykrwawił „szatana” na ziemiach oddalonych od europejskich stolic, przyjęto dogmat, iż każdy, kto występuje przeciwko „diabłu”, będzie odtąd wrogiem koalicji antyfaszystowskiej i przeciwnikiem „normalizacji”. Zaakceptowano również okupację sowiecką nad połową Europy, nadając jej pozory „demokracji socjalistycznej” i konwalidując okupacyjne twory w relacjach międzynarodowych.
Ówczesne „autorytety emigracyjne” zgrzytały zębami, gdy Józef Mackiewicz przywoływał słowa Goebbelsa, który w przededniu klęski hitlerowskich Niemiec pisał - „Polskę czeka marny los na wypadek zwycięstwa aliantów, Anglia okaże się w rezultacie słaba i Polskę sprzeda, bolszewicy Polskę zabiorą i zrobią z niej 17 republikę.”
Rok 1989 i propagandowe ogłoszenie „upadku komunizmu” był efektem kontynuacji tej mitologicznej postawy wobec „diabła”. Jego przejście na „stronę światłości” powitano jako ostateczne zwycięstwo nad „szatanem totalitaryzmu” i konsekwencję wspólnej walki z demonem – Hitlerem. Przyczyną tej zbiorowej mistyfikacji była m.in. konieczność usprawiedliwienia sojuszu z międzynarodowym komunizmem. Bez tego usprawiedliwienia, ideowa wykładnia wojny z Hitlerem oraz zgoda Zachodu na półwiecze okupacji sowieckiej, nie byłaby możliwa.
Dzięki fikcyjnej „śmierci komunizmu” dokonano rozgrzeszenia hańby ładu jałtańskiego, zaaprobowano farsę procesu w Norymberdze i zapomniano komunistom zbrodnie ludobójstwa, przy których bledną wyczyny Hitlera.
            Współczesna geopolityka stanowi prostą kontynuację tej mitologii i wspiera na szalbierskich dogmatach ustanowionych w czasach powojennych. Nie ma w niej miejsca na racjonalną metodologię, która uwzględniałaby rzeczywistą pozycję Federacji Rosyjskiej ani na prawidłową ocenę głównej broni Kremla - strategii podstępu i dezinformacji.
Niewielu też rozumie, że bez uwzględnienia tej historycznej skazy, niemożliwe jest prawidłowe odczytanie intencji Zachodu ani zrozumienie planów Rosji.
Błąd podstawowy dotyczy interpretacji wydarzeń w świecie rosyjskim - jako incydentów służących celom krótkoterminowym, doraźnym. Nie ma analityków zdolnych widzieć te wydarzenia w kontekście długoterminowej strategii komunistycznej, zmierzającej do podboju Europy i zniszczenia porządku światowego. Literalne odczytywanie decyzji Kremla, jako „służących pokojowi” bądź „zmierzających do konfliktu” oraz dawanie wiary werbalnym deklaracjom Rosjan, jest najczęstszym błędem, uwarunkowanym wadliwą metodologią i pojałtańską skazą historyczną.
Prezydent – kagebista, wpatrzony w batiuszkę Stalina, mógłby dziś powtórzyć za swoim mistrzem - „Słowa nie mogą mieć żadnego związku z działaniem. Słowa to jedno, a działania, to co innego. Dobre słowa to maska kryjąca złe czyny.”
Ostatnia dekada obfitowała w kardynalne błędy, popełniane przez polityków Zachodu. Amerykański „reset”, podpisanie układu START, ucieczka z Afganistanu, rezygnacja z budowy tarczy antyrakietowej, przyjęcie Rosji do Światowej Organizacji Handlu – były tragicznymi w skutkach decyzjami, które m.in. umożliwiły Rosji smoleńską rozprawę z „czynnikiem polskim” i przyczyniły się do agresji na Ukrainę.
Ponieważ to my – Polacy płacimy coraz wyższą cenę za głupotę i słabość przywódców „wolnego świata”, nie mamy prawa udawać, że obecna sytuacja nie stwarza ogromnego zagrożenia.  Tym większego, że coraz łatwiej dostrzec analogie z okresem jałtańskim, gdy mocarstwa światowe sankcjonowały sowiecką okupację i oddawały Stalinowi kolejne strefy wpływów.
Kraje „wolnego świata” uznały już, że należy zalegalizować okupację części Ukrainy i na mocy groteskowego „porozumienia mińskiego” zmusić niepodległe państwo do tolerowania rosyjskiego agresora. Identyczny zamysł towarzyszy porozumieniu Rosja – USA, w którym Amerykanie zaakceptowali bandycką napaść na Syrię i uznali armię okupanta za „sprzymierzeńca w walce z terroryzmem”. Nie mam wątpliwości, że gdyby nie agresja rosyjska na Ukrainę i potrzeba mistyfikacji „nowego rozdania” w III RP, my również znaleźlibyśmy się w kleszczach moskiewskich wpływów, a „wolny świat” zaakceptowałby każdą formę polskiego zniewolenia. 
Rosja, która od lat 20. ubiegłego wieku organizuje i wspiera wszelkie działania terrorystyczne i jest dziś stolicą światowego terroryzmu, posiadła zdolność mistrzowskiego rozgrywania tej karty. Historycy i politolodzy będą się kiedyś głowili – jak to możliwe, że państwo, które zorganizowało zamach smoleński, wysłało terrorystów na Ukrainę, zamordowało 300 pasażerów Boeinga, kierowało kadyrowskie komanda do USA i urządziło krwawy najazd „imigrantów” na Europę, mogło być traktowane jako „gwarant procesów pokojowych” i uznawane za „sojusznika w wojnie z islamskim terroryzmem”?    
Wyłaniająca się z tego pytania konkluzja powinna porażać ogromem nonsensu i niedorzeczności. Taka też jest skala błędnych decyzji przywódców Zachodu i miara szaleństwa obecnej strategii.
Pora uznać, że nie ma takiego draństwa i takiej zbrodni rosyjskiej, której „wolny świat” nie będzie w stanie usprawiedliwić i zaakceptować. Uderzenie na Gruzję, aneksja Abchazji, Smoleńsk, wojna na Ukrainie oraz setki aktów rosyjskiego terroru na całym świecie, nie byłby możliwe, gdyby nie bezmierna słabość i ignorancja przywódców „wolnego świata”. Interpretowana dwojako, – jako dowód aberracji umysłowych, wynikających z przyjęcia fałszywych norm intelektualnych lub jako wyznacznik patologicznych relacji finansowych czy agenturalnych. Tylko te czynniki – słabość Zachodu i agenturalna sieć intryg, są rzeczywistym kapitałem współczesnej Rosji i tylko na nich bazuje ofensywna polityka Putina.
W ramach takiej metodologii musi pojawić się pytanie, – po co władca Kremla miałby dążyć do totalnej konfrontacji militarnej, której efekt jest aż nadto przewidywalny, skoro już dziś zdołał osiągnąć strategiczne cele? Dlaczego miałby ryzykować puczem kagiebowskich kamratów, jeśli już teraz dostarcza im ogromnych dochodów i zapewnia potężne wpływy? 
Pytanie tym bardziej zasadne, że po ostatnich roszadach personalnych i nazbyt wojowniczej retoryce Kremla, pojawiają się objawy niezadowolenia ze strony tychże kamratów. „Drogowe incydenty”, w których stracił życie zaufany szofer Putina, a najbliższy doradca został solidnie wystraszony, nazbyt przypominają klasyczne operacje KGB, by mogły zostać zignorowane.
Mając dziś w ręku dwa instrumenty polityczne – wojnę w Syrii i na Ukrainie oraz dysponując ekspansywną siecią agentury w każdym zakątku świata, Putin może dowolnie rozgrywać kremlowskiego pokera.
Porozumienia z Irakiem, Turcją, Arabią Saudyjską, Izraelem, a dziś z USA, pozwoliły zbudować ogromną ( i niewspółmierną do potencjału) pozycję Rosji, a w niedalekiej przyszłości zaowocują „rekonstrukcją Związku Sowieckiego na Bliskim Wschodzie” (Michael Reagan).
Przed rokiem, w zakończeniu wrześniowego tekstu „O PUTINIE, RABINIE I KOZACH” napisałem – „Biorąc pod uwagę przerażającą słabość Zachodu oraz niemoc i głupotę obecnej administracji USA, jest więcej niż pewne, że rosyjski watażka wprowadzi nam wkrótce kolejne „kozy” i zagra o jeszcze większą stawkę.”
Klasyczną „zagrywką z kozą” był tzw. pucz przeciwko Erdoganowi. Sprowokowano go, przekazując wywiadowi tureckiemu ostrzeżenia o planach obalenia prezydenta. Gdy tureckie siły bezpieczeństwa szykowały obławę na puczystów, zdecydowali oni o przyspieszeniu działań. Efekt był łatwy do przewidzenia. Źródła arabskie wyraźnie wskazują, że ostrzeżenie o puczu przekazał wywiad rosyjski. Prowokując próbę obalenia Erdogana i przyjmując pozę jego sojusznika, Putin zapewnił sobie wdzięczność tureckiego satrapy i ugruntował swoją pozycję w konflikcie syryjskim. Ta prosta kombinacja posłużyła również do rozszczelnienia struktury NATO i ułatwiła przejęcie inicjatywy na flance południowej.        
Uzyskując „stabilizację” na Bliskim Wschodzie i zapewniając wpływ na USA (Trump) i Turcję, Putin będzie mógł przystąpić do kolejnej rekonstrukcji - odbudowy Bloku Wschodniego.
Można przypuszczać, że za rolę „niezastąpionego partnera” USA w wojnie z terroryzmem, Waszyngton zapłaci Rosji cenę mierzoną niepodległością Ukrainy. Ponieważ eurołajdacy zapłacili ją już dawno, droga na Zachód zostanie otwarta.  Zadbają o to rzesze „konserwatystów z moskiewskiego nadania” oraz przyjaciele Putina z Niemiec, Węgier czy Słowacji.
W interesie Rosji leży dziś pogłębianie dotychczasowych konfliktów i wywoływanie nowych ognisk. Potrzebny jest chaos, zamachy i pucze.  Im dłużej Putin będzie eskalował napięcie na Bliskim Wschodzie i (wespół z Merkel) terroryzował Europę najazdem „imigrantów”, tym większe jest prawdopodobieństwo ustępstw w sprawie Ukrainy i zmuszenia „wolnego świata” do akceptacji okupacji rosyjskiej.
Kolejne kroki w odbudowie Bloku Wschodniego, nie muszą prowadzić do inwazji militarnej. Mając perspektywę prezydentury „amerykańskiego Leppera” i działań agentury ulokowanej w jego otoczeniu, władca Kremla nie musi sięgać po samobójcze narzędzia.  Wygrana Trumpa i tak przyczyni się do dezintegracji NATO i wycofania Ameryki ze spraw europejskich. Nieoceniona będzie tu pomoc Niemiec i Francji, które od lat zabiegają o wyparcie USA ze Starego Kontynentu. Projekt „armii europejskiej”, żywo wspierany przez Merkel i Orbana, jest jednym z elementów tej strategii. Sterowane przez Moskwę ruchy „konserwatywne” i „narodowe” dają z kolei pewność, że głównym zagrożeniem dla pokoju światowego staną się muzułmanie, Amerykanie, masoni i Żydzi. 
Gwarancją takich rozstrzygnięć będzie jednak szalbiercza metodyka walki „szatana” z „diabłem”, którą Zachód praktykuje od czasu II wojny światowej. Dziś znajduje ona nową odsłonę w konfrontacji z zagrożeniem islamskim – w ogromnej mierze wywołanym i utrzymywanym przez światową stolicę terroryzmu.
Po raz kolejny Zachód jest gotów „sprzymierzyć się z diabłem, żeby tylko wypędzić szatana”
Po raz kolejny Polacy mogą zapłacić najwyższą cenę.

          Comment on Yes, We Have an International Airport by BC Shelby   
...Boeing recently announced plans for the 797, which will fit in between the 737 Max and 787. The plane is designed specifically with providing long range/transatlantic service to smaller market cities (like Milwaukee) in mind. The 737 Max also will have the range to provide such service as well. One good candidate is Norwegian Air which currently serves Mitchell with "sunbird" flights to the Caribbean. The airline is not only taking on more orders for 787s, but the 737 Max 10 and is interested in the 797.. Norwegian is also looking to increase service between Europe and North America and is evaluating "second tier airports" that are close to major population centres such as Milwaukee Mitchell. Given the refurbishment that is under way to transform the underused E concourse into an international terminal complete with customs, as well as the close proximity to the Northern Chicago environs as well as having a rail station associated with the airport, Milwaukee could become an attractive "secondary" gateway. for the lower Great Lakes/Chicago region. True we may not be able to attract the big foreign carriers like British, Lufthansa, Air France, Virgin Atlantic, KLM, Qantas, ANA, or Ethiad, nor have overseas service provided by any of the big three US carriers (particularly since a number of them already offer intercontinental service from O'Hare). However, many of the low fare international airlines like Norwegian, Condor, Icelandair, and Air Berlin would fit right in.

          Después de nueve lanzamientos en 2017, cuál es el futuro de SpaceX?   
¿Se puede volar con frecuencia?

Elon Musk y SpaceX tuvieron un fin de semana ocupado. Mientras gran parte del país celebraba el fin de semana en la playa o disfrutaba pasando tiempo con sus amigos, SpaceX trabajaba duro lanzando dos cohetes para clientes, uno en la costa este y uno en la costa oeste. Uno de esos cohetes había volado anteriormente. Y a pesar de los peligrosos reingresos, la compañía recuperó los dos primeros propulsores de la etapa.

Por ello SpaceX ha recibido una gran cantidad de elogios por sus logros y tiene una legión de admiradores dentro de la comunidad aeroespacial y el público en general. Pero también tiene críticos, principalmente competidores que miran a SpaceX y ven una empresa que recibe atenciones pero no siempre logra lo que se propone. Lo que quizás sea más llamativo en los lanzamientos consecutivos de este fin de semana son los éxitos de la compañía.

Vuelo


Durante el verano de 2014, durante el calor de la competencia entre SpaceX, Boeing y Sierra Nevada para ganar grandes contratos de la NASA y convertirse en proveedores de servicios comerciales de la tripulación.

Se analizó que había una retórica que venía de Musk y la compañía en lugar de mirar la sustancia. Había pronosticado catorce vuelos ese año y otros catorce al año siguiente, sólo realizó dos.

A principios de julio de 2014, SpaceX lanzó su cohete Falcon 9 apenas dos veces ese año. Tenía un plan mucho más largo, con decenas de clientes esperando en la cola. Musk se estaba volviendo tan irremediablemente atrasado en su plan de lanzamiento que Boeing no podía ver cómo SpaceX podría fácilmente agregar vuelos de tripulación comerciales a su programa de lanzamiento.

SpaceX continuó luchando con este lanzamiento en 2015 (seis vuelos exitosos, un accidente) y en 2016 (ocho vuelos exitosos, un accidente). Sin embargo, al mismo tiempo, SpaceX fue innovando casi continuamente, refinando su cohete para mejorar su capacidad de elevación y la capacidad de aterrizar el refuerzo de primera etapa.

Ahora comenzamos a ver cómo SpaceX construye cohetes y mejora su capacidad de vuelo. A finales de este verano, SpaceX tendrá tres plataformas de lanzamiento operacionales, y una cuarta en Brownsville, Texas, que podría estar en línea a finales de 2018. Hasta ahora en 2017, SpaceX ha lanzado con éxito más cohetes este año (nueve) que en cualquier año anterior. Y ni siquiera estamos a finales de junio.

Solo el gobierno


En 2016 otra de sus principales críticas a SpaceX es que la compañía subsistía en gran parte debido a los ingresos del gobierno de los EE.UU., obtenía cerca del 70 por ciento de su financiación de la NASA, NOAA y otras agencias gubernamentales.

En ese momento, esta fuente era más o menos correcta. A través de abril de 2016, SpaceX lanzó su cohete Falcon 9 un total de 22 veces para los clientes de pago y 12 de esos lanzamientos fueron para la NASA y un puñado de otras agencias gubernamentales. Factorizando los premios multimillonarios que SpaceX había recibido por servicios comerciales de carga y tripulación de la NASA, era totalmente razonable sugerir que SpaceX había obtenido la mayoría de sus ingresos por parte del gobierno de Estados Unidos.

Desde esa discusión, sin embargo, SpaceX ha comenzado a lanzar una proporción mucho mayor de misiones comerciales. Durante los últimos 14 meses SpaceX ha volado 15 veces, y sólo cuatro de esas misiones han llevado cargas útiles del gobierno. En consecuencia, la fracción de la empresa de lanzamientos puramente comerciales ha aumentado de 45 por ciento antes de abril de 2016 a 71 por ciento desde entonces. Los próximos dos lanzamientos de SpaceX serán también para clientes comerciales, por lo que parece plausible para finales de este año que cerca de tres cuartas partes de los lanzamientos de Falcon 9 sean para clientes privados y no para el gobierno. En resumen, es cada vez más difícil argumentar que SpaceX se está convirtiendo en algo más que una empresa espacial comercial.

Además de las críticas honestas, también ha habido una serie de aspersiones completamente deshonestas lanzadas en Musk y la compañía. Esta corriente subyacente de sentimiento anti-Musk alega que SpaceX existe únicamente para ordeñar al gobierno y que Elon Musk es un gran "estafador". La crítica ha surgido en algunos sitios web de derechas. La realidad es que SpaceX ahora está ahorrando bastante dinero a E.E.U.U. y podemos tener una confianza creciente de que lo hará en el futuro en una escala aún mayor.

          Angry Joe Scarborough Lashes Out at ‘Stalinist’ Trump’s Media Critique    

The liberal media remained in damage control mode Thursday as it sought to contain the ever-widening blast radius emerging from CNN. Bret Stephens from the New York Times arrived on the set of Morning Joe to decry the White House’s attack on the media. Stephens defended CNN by claiming that the growing scandal merely represented a “mistake.”  Co-host Joe Scarborough went even further in his criticism of the President by labeling his criticism of the media as “Stalinist.”

Washington Examiner columnist, Kristen Solstice Anderson, seemingly acknowledged the overwhelming media bias against Trump initially stating, “If you're trying to make ends meet and you want to know what's happening...you can be forgiven for thinking that the media doesn't want to talk about stuff that's relevant to you.” She followed this up, however, with the complaint that the media, “only have to make a mistake once for Trump to say look, see, I told you so.”

 

 

BRET STEPHENS: He's accusing us of something else. He's accusing us of dishonesty and that's the way he operates. And that’s why I was so alarmed by the decision to CNN to cashier three reporters behind this Scaramucci report which turned out to be wrong or insufficient.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Which Scaramucci handled very well by the way.

STEPHENS: He handled it with a great deal of grace. Okay. You made a mistake. You move on. But the White House sees this as an opportunity to confirm a hypothesis for its supporters, for its followers who are not making the distinction who think that CNN is out willfully to get the President, not simply to report the news.

SCARBOROUGH: Right. And Kristen, just to be totally very clear, because I think you talked about this during the campaign along with us. Nobody is saying that what Donald Trump is doing now is right. In fact, we think it's extraordinarily dangerous. Called the media enemy of the people. It’s Stalinist. But at the same time if you look in middle America, if you -- he has a more willing audience, a more receptive audience because the media got it wrong for the entire 18 months of his campaign.

KRISTEN SOLSTICE ANDERSON: I think that's right. And I think you don't have to be someone who is hooked up to an IV drip of Rush Limbaugh these days to think that there might be something that the media could do better. That they might not love this president and that they might want to put first and foremost the things that are bad about him. And if you are a voter who may not even love this president. You may not like his tweets. You may not love that he's putting up a fake cover of himself at his golf club. But, if you're trying to make ends meet and you want to know what's going on with your health care and you want to know what's happening with immigration and you turn on the news and the stories you see are look at this ridiculous thing the President tweeted, look at this ridiculous thing he put up at his golf club, you can be forgiven for thinking that the media doesn't want to talk about stuff that's relevant to you.

They just want to make fun of the President and think that that's a dereliction of their duty. And so I think that there are a lot of voters especially on the right, but not just the right, that think that media has not done an effective job of explaining what's really happening truthfully on stories that matter to them. And that is only heightened, as Brett mentioned, that they only have to make a mistake once for Trump to say look, see, I told you so.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: So what really matters on stories that’s important to them Bret? What has this president accomplished for his base for the people who are concerned that the media’s not telling the truth? Let's spell it out? Let's see. What have we got?

STEPHENS: Look. This is just the thing. I think media would be happy to report accomplishments. I'd like to know what they are.

BRZEZINSKI: Yes, where are they?

STEPHENS: I’d like to know what they are.

Exchanges like this cause the objective thinker to question whether or not there is anything that will ever result in the media coming forward and confessing their own biases and agendas. If coverage statistics, video recordings, and even lawsuits won’t do it, will anything ever?

          Horizon Air Is Canceling Hundreds of Flights Because of the “Pilot Shortage” It Helped Create   

On the one hand, we’re told, robots are coming to take all our jobs any day now. But then there are 6 million job openings in the U.S., and large companies in a range of industries are telling us they are running out of humans to perform labor.

The reality, of course, is somewhere in between. Automation is substituting for human labor in ways large and small. The productivity engine isn’t completely broken. The volume of coal mined this year is up 17 percent, though employment in coal mining is up only two 2 percent. But American companies don’t have a shortage of people. They have a shortage of wages, benefits, and training. Companies could fix that problem, but they haven’t.

Take Horizon Air, a regional airline that services the Pacific Northwest, which the Seattle Times reports is “cutting its flight schedule this summer because of a severe shortage of pilots for its Q400 turboprop planes. The shortage became a crisis this past month when Horizon was forced to cancel more than 318 flights because it didn’t have enough pilots to fly all its planes.” That represents 6.2 percent of the flights Horizon runs between Seattle and places like Boise, Spokane, and Portland.

Think about that. Flying these routes isn’t some ancillary or side business for Horizon. It’s the only business it is in. Canceling flights is damaging to your brand and your company’s long-term prospects—it alienates and annoys customers who have already purchased tickets. And it’s damaging to your short-term profits. You’re in the business of moving people from point A to point B, the more you can move the better. You’re already committed to pay for the overhead—the planes, insurance, the gate slots at airports, the maintenance, and the ground crews. You need volume to be as high as it can. Choosing not to run flights that have paying passengers is an enormous own goal. It’s the equivalent of Starbucks deciding not to open several hundred stores for which it is paying rent because it doesn’t have enough managers.

Horizon Air isn’t some tiny operation unable to cope with the vagaries of the marketplace. It’s a unit of Alaska Air, a publicly held company that has a market capitalization of $11 billion and that chalked up $1.7 billion in revenue and $99 million in net income in its most recent quarter. It has a big balance sheet, vast resources, stock, borrowing capacity, and access to all kinds of services.

A big airline intentionally grounding flights because it can’t find pilots is a great metaphor. Horizon and other companies in this situation are paying the price for a decade or more of corporate pathology surrounding wages. Labor is a commodity. It’s why we call it a labor market. When labor is in abundant supply, when lots of people with the requisite skills are looking for jobs and openings are few, you don’t have to pay as much to fill positions. That’s the world looked like from 2008 to 2012.  But when labor is in short supply, when few people with the requisite skills are seeking work and there are lots of openings, you have to pay a lot more. That’s what the world has looked like for the last few years.

But many businesses seem blind to the reality. They’ve become accustomed to thinking they have can have all the labor they want, with all the skills they need, without having to pay much for it or offer long-term job security or help fund the training.

We’ve been hearing complaints about a pilot shortage for a few years now. The problem seems particularly acute at regional airlines, which often pay exceedingly low wages for jobs that require training and education that can cost up to $100,000. To weather its current problems, Horizon will pay some pilots overtime to fly extra hours. That’s a Band-Aid, not a permanent fix.

There is no pilot shortage in America. There is a shortage of airlines—big, well-heeled, profitable companies—who are willing to do what it takes to recruit, train, and retain the necessary labor. If you have positions to fill, there’s a relatively simple solution. Offer higher wages to people who already have jobs so they will walk across the street. Offer existing employees better long-term incentives, profit-sharing, stock, pensions, and other benefits so they’ll be less likely to leave. To recruit new employees, offer to train them yourselves, or to pay back the loans they incur while getting the training that will enable you to run your business, or offer to split the flight school tuition in exchange for a commitment to work for the airline for several years.

There’s a phrase people in companies use when colleagues complain of a challenging situation. “You’re a businessperson. Figure it out.” Managers and leaders get paid to figure out how to solve the problems they face. Coping with a shortage of skilled workers by shuttering a portion of your operations doesn’t seem like much of a solution.

          United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launch   

By Irene Klotz

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla () Reuters – - United Launch Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing Co , for the first time beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in competition for an Air Force satellite launch, both launch companies said on Friday.

The contact covers launch services for multiple satellites aboard an Atlas 5 rocket in June 2019. The contract value is $191,141,581, the Air Force said.

United Launch Alliance, which previously had a monopoly on launches, has not won a competition with SpaceX since the company won a contract for an Air Force launch business with a contract award in 2016.

A SpaceX official told Reuters it did not expect to win this bidding competition because the mission required a heavy-lift launcher and its Falcon Heavy booster has not yet flown.

“The mission performance required that we bid Falcon Heavy,” SpaceX spokesman John Taylor wrote in a email to Reuters.

“We did submit a bid, but with the knowledge that our first Falcon Heavy flight might occur after the time of the award.  Given we have not flown Falcon Heavy, we did not anticipate winning this mission,” he said.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is expected to debut this year.

***** 
Exactly 70 years ago, on the morning of August 6, 1945, the Enola Gay, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, flew over Hiroshima and dropped the first atomic bomb on humans. The bomb exploded 2,000' above the ground and five square miles of Hiroshima was completely destroyed, incinerating and killing 90,000 people; 70,000 more people would die soon after from burns and radiation. Nearly all the killed people were civilians.


Three days later, on August 9, 1945, the United States would drop a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing 70,000 civilians.

President Truman justified the use of nuclear weapons on "military necessity"---the need to avoid an invasion of Japan which would have cost American military lives, but, in fact, every one of Truman's military advisors and his Commander of the U.S. Army in the Far East, Douglas MacArthur, and Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, advised Truman that using nuclear weapons was not necessary to defeat the Japanese, who had a delegation in Washington D.C. negotiating for peace, and expressly advised Truman against using the bombs.

Historic records of Truman's administration later would reveal that use of nuclear weapons was never directed at Japan:  Truman's Secretary of State, James Byrnes, had convinced Truman that the Soviet Union would emerge from WWII as America's only rival and we needed to show them we had nuclear weapons and were willing to use them. Dropping the bombs on Japan was an attempt to dictate post-war terms to the USSR, not defeat Japan.  It was the beginning of the Cold War and the greatest single act of terrorism in the history of the world.


All of this has been documented by historians, most notably Gar Alperovitz in two books: Atomic Diplomacy and The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb.  Alperovitz' scholarship has stood up for 40 years.

Of course, this is not the version taught in schools and not the version popular in public conversation in America.  America doesn't do introspection.  America doesn't do contrition.  America fights terrorism, but never looks at its own acts of terrorism.

But maybe we could look at it today.

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


Here is a video I made Waltzing Matilda

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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.  
=== from 2015 ===
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation came into being on this day in 1932. It is a bureaucratic mess. But it isn't the worst mess on this day. In 1766, a young French nobleman, Jean-François de la Barre who was tortured and beheaded before his body was burned on a pyre. Also burned, pinned to his body, was a work of Voltaire. The crime the twenty year old man committed was said to be failing to bow to a religious procession, but the unpleasant truth is that he was a protestant in a catholic land. The ABC was created in the hope that the left leaning press in Australia would be balanced by state body which reported facts, not bias. The reality is that the ABC has never been balanced. 

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

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

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

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

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

          Забастовка British Airways не принесет больших сбоев в расписании   
30 июня 2017, 19:17, Travel.ru - Авиакомпания British Airways заявила, что начинающаяся 1 июля полумесячная забастовка бортпроводников не приведет к значительным сбоям в расписании. Российские линии, по всей видимости, и вовсе не будут затронуты акцией, сообщает соб.корр. Travel.ru.

Бастовать намерена одна пятая часть бортпроводников компании. British Airways заявила, что отмены рейсов возможны только на маршрутах из ее основной лондонской базы в аэропорту Heathrow, а все рейсы из других британских аэропортов, включая столичные City и Gatwick, будут выполнены по графику.

Для минимизации сбоев British Airways зафрахтовала несколько самолетов Airbus A320 у Qatar Airways - часть флота последней сейчас стоит без работы из-за политического кризиса в Персидском заливе. Не исключено, что эти самолеты могут быть задействованы на рейсах Лондон - Санкт-Петербург.

Отмены рейсов на этом маршруте в ходе акции крайне маловероятны - он обслуживается лишь раз в день, причем немало рейсов на ближайшие дни полностью распроданы. Скорее всего, аннуляции будут касаться лишь коротких линий с высокой частотой вылетов по Великобритании и в соседние страны. Пассажиры отмененных рейсов будут перевезены любыми доступными рейсами по их выбору.

Représentée sur place par ses équipes et ses étudiants, l’école a profité de cette semaine inoubliable pour multiplier les rencontres et les initiatives. De l’opération « Elles Bougent s’envole au Bourget » à la présence du simulateur de vol conçu par l’association IPSA Flight, en passant par la signature de multiples partenariats et de belles retrouvailles avec Dorine Bourneton, Thomas Pesquet ou encore les membres de la Patrouille de France (PAF), l’école vous propose de revivre les temps forts de ce SIAE 2017 à travers les yeux des IPSAliens. Préparez-vous au décollage : c’est parti !



Quand la PAF retrouve l’IPSA
L’IPSA et la PAF, c’est une amitié qui dure. Déjà partenaire du film « La Patrouille de France » qui célébrait les 60 ans de cette formation, l’école organisait au mois d’avril 2017 une rencontre avec le Commandant Christophe Dubois, actuel leader de PAF, à l’occasion de l’US Tour réalisée par cette dernière. Quoi de plus normal alors que de voir ces pilotes d’élite profiter de leur présence au Bourget pour venir saluer l’école… et essayer le simulateur de Boeing 777 d’IPSA Flight.




Un simulateur très apprécié

Il n’y a pas que les membres de la PAF qui ont pu tester le simulateur de vol d’IPSA Flight. Durant le SIAIE, nombreux ont été les visiteurs à vouloir, le temps d’un vol virtuel, réaliser leur rêve de devenir pilote au sein de cette structure entièrement réalisée par les étudiants de l’association au fur et à mesure des années. Un succès amplement mérité, qui vient récompenser la passion et le travail de plusieurs générations d’IPSAliens !



L’IPSA & Elles Bougent : la transmission avant tout
De passion, il en était également question lors de l’opération « Elles Bougent s’envole au Bourget » pour laquelle l’IPSA était partenaire. L’occasion pour près de 150 collégiennes et lycéennes de partir à la rencontre des professionnels de l’aéronautique et de l’espace en compagnie de plusieurs femmes ayant fait le choix de réaliser une belle carrière dans ce secteur !




Thomas Pesquet et Dorine Bourneton avec les IPSAliens
L’un est astronaute et vient à peine de rentrer de son séjour de six mois à bord de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). L’autre est la première femme handicapée pilote de voltige et représente un bel exemple d’abnégation et de combativité. Thomas Pesquet et Dorine Bourneton étaient également de passage au Bourget pour retrouver l’IPSA qu’ils avaient déjà pu côtoyer par le passé, lors de deux conférences passionnantes organisées par l’école ces dernières années.

L’innovation « made in IPSA » également à l’honneur
Après avoir fait forte impression sur le stand IONIS Education Group lors du salon Viva Technology 2017, la start-up Bonanza de Franck Lapalus-Magnan et Mathieu Marziou (IPSA promo 2016) a également fait parler d’elle lors du SIAE grâce à son application mobile destinée à faciliter la recherche d’alternances et de stages grâce à une candidature en un clic !

Bernard Moretti, responsable des études 4e et 5e années et Francis Pollet, directeur général de l’IPSA, avec le duo à l’origine de Bonanza

Trois nouveaux partenariats prestigieux
Au Bourget, l’IPSA a aussi officialisé trois nouveaux partenariats avec AKKA Technologies, l’Institut aéronautique Jean Mermoz et Kuehne + Nagel, trois entités reconnues du monde de l’air et de l’espace ! Avec Kuehne + Nagel le partenariat porte sur un projet de gestion de drones et d’inventaires dans les entrepôts de grande hauteur et de grande superficie. Avec l’Institut Jean Mermoz, ce partenariat permet la mise en place d’un nouveau double diplôme. Enfin, avec AKKA Technologies, ce partenariat vise à favoriser l’insertion professionnelle des futurs ingénieurs de l’école.

          Unions not giving up on Boeing   
The Boeing plant in North Charleston has been a sore spot with organized labor, who lost a high-profile proxy battle waged by the National Labor Relations Board to keep the airplane manufacturer from opening the plant in the first place. This action followed a vote to decertify the on-site local affiliate of the International Association of Machinists (IAM) union.

Not to be deterred by these defeats, the IAM continued its efforts to get back into the North Charleston, including hosting a meet-and-greet last fall with reportedly very low turnout.

The Charleston Post and Courier is reporting that the IAM effort is still ongoing, reporting that Tommy Mayfield, a regional IAM leader, has continued outreach efforts in an effort to organize a vote to bring a labor union into the North Charleston facility:

Mayfield said he’s been holding his own meetings and keeping in touch with interested Boeing South Carolina workers all the while.


“The thing with Jack, that’s fine,” Mayfield said when reached by phone Thursday, before clarifying Jones’ opening line. “But we haven’t left. We’ve always been here.” 



As Boeing likes to point out, the IAM does have a history in North Charleston. 



The union narrowly won representation rights at the complex’s aft-body factory in November 2007, back when it was owned by Vought Aircraft Industries, but was decertified in September 2009.

Thus far, these efforts haven't made much headway, but we'll keep watching anyway.

          Thankful for...   
It's that time of year when we traditionally get together as families and also come up with lists of things to be thankful for. While it's been a long time since I've made a list, I decided that since I will be taking this day for my own, I should at least spend some effort to thank those who are important to me. Without further ado:

My mom and dad - thank you for being great parents. While you may not know what things you've done right or wrong, and it may seem like a lot of it was just chance, there is one thing I can guarantee has had an impact, and that was your love for each other.

My sister - thank you for being a great friend and a sounding board for so many different topics. I am also thankful that you're finding success in your own way, and that it's an adventure you're looking forward to instead of dreading.

My boss and my senior lead - thank you for looking out for me at Boeing. You have also provided me with some of the most interesting and challenging opportunities, and have definitely been the reason I've stuck things out this long.

My friends - I really want to thank you all for the companionship and patience you have demonstrated with me. I am at my core an introvert, so learning to be a friend is difficult. I will make mistakes and at times appear counter-productive, but this is not my intent and I am thankful for any understanding you can lend.

My mechanics - thank you guys for working on my cars, and being patient with all my little projects. While it would be easy to rip someone off, I know that you've done all you can to do business honestly, and have earned my gratitude and future business.

My God - well that's between God and me ;)

Thank you all for another wonderful year, and I hope the next one is just as good.

          [Aparecido rasga o verbo] À espera do Enola Gay, o milagre que salvaria o Brasil   
Aparecido Raimundo de Souza

“O brasileiro é antes de tudo uma besta elevada ao quadrado”.
João Topa Tudo (Pensador de rua. Rodoviária de Ribeirão Preto, interior de São Paulo).


MAIS UMA VEZ, senhoras e senhores, estamos aqui para dizer à população nativa, amedrontada, acovardada, aterrada, que o Brasil está na UTI, vítima de doença incurável. Um câncer raro, pior do que o que vitimou o cantor sertanejo Leandro (da dupla Leandro & Leonardo), em 1998. Um câncer profundamente maligno, inextirpável, portanto, sem cura. Mal crescente, que sabemos, de antemão, se alastrou corpo inteiro nação afora e não há remédio, tampouco medicina que dê jeito. Agora, só um milagre. Talvez nem isso. O Brasil entrou em estado de decomposição vegetativo. Em face disso, se prolonga, se desdobra, se protela aos peidos, preso, acorrentado, amordaçado, a aparelhos, para manter a “onra” que perdeu faz tempo.

O Brasil, na verdade, morreu. Ninguém acredita, mas já era. Foi para os quintos. Está obtuado, fedendo; e o cheiro do que dele restou exala por todos os cantos. Fere contumazmente narizes, corações, pessoas. Ataca frontalmente o que ainda poderia ser salvo. O Brasil de hoje é o mesmo de quinhentos anos atrás, quando Cabral aqui aportou. Estamos todos, filhos desta pátria fodida, corrompida, estragada, decomposta, maravilhando com olhos esbugalhados, a devastação, a pouca-vergonha, o descaso, a falta de pulso, de brio, de nossos representantes em Brasília.

O epicentro, por sua vez, é um enorme prostíbulo, um boeing gigantesco pousado, transformado em casa de mãe-joana, onde putas e veados de todos os quadrantes da federação abundam numa equação que nenhum matemático, por mais experiência que tenha, consegue resolver. Malba Tahan, se vivo fosse, meteria seu homem que calculava na bacia latrinal de algum daqueles palácios intocáveis que apinham à beira do Paranoá e daria descarga. Descarga com força, com gosto, senhor de si. O sol da canalhice, como se percebe, está alto. Queima, dilacera, caustica. O insuportável se propagou. Criou formas dantescas.

As vísceras dos pobres e oprimidos, a cada minuto se multiplicam, se reproduzem, se vulgarizam. A alma das Isaltinas e Manés, Franciscos e Catarinas se desgraçam no repasto da expiação. A impunidade vinda do pessoal da rebeldia dá as ordens, fala alto, grita; e o povinho (atocaiado na alfândega do Congresso e da Câmara) sem eira nem beira, sem teto, sem chão, sem comida, sem direito, se ferra, se atrapalha, se consome, se acorrenta. Os “sem-noção” tomam no rabo, e para não sentirem a dor do ferro entrando, sorriem. O coitadinho do brasileiro sorri. Kikikiki. Sorri meio que tímido, acanhado, retraído, insuflado mais pelo amarelo que o normal, contudo, sorri. É só o que pode fazer: sorrir. Sorrir e ver a trolha adentrando, vagarosamente, pacientemente, sem estardalhaço.

          “Мы обязаны защитить цивилизацию!” – Лавров сделал шокирующее заявление о роли России. Мир, берегись! (ВИДЕО)   
Россия начала войну на Донбассе и аннексировала Крым, чтобы защитить русских и русскоязычных. По планам Киева, якобы хотели выгнать из домов и переселить за пределы страны.  Пише http://de-facto.cc




Об этом заявил министр иностранных дел РФ Сергей Лавров.

«Мы защищаем то, о чем договорились после победы в 1945 году. Если бы не защитили своих людей, то потеряли цивилизацию. Наши предки его веками строили, а мы могли бы потерять в один момент. Именно поэтому мы защитили Крым, воюем в Сирии. А наши противники с Запада в то время договариваются с террористами, чтобы уничтожить Асада. Это вопрос воспитания и политических взглядов. Россия имеет вес в мировой политике, поэтому будет делать то, что считает нужным», — сказал Сергей Лавров, министр иностранных дел РФ.

Министр иностранных дел России Сергей Лавров поставил под сомнение результаты расследования группы Bellingcat. Согласно с ними, ЗРК «Бук», из которого сбили малайзийский Boeing в небе над Украиной, принадлежал российской армии.

July 13-22 & July 27-August 5 If I Were You - The Theatre Bug, 4809 Gallatin Pike, Nashville. If I Were You is an original musical by Cori Anne Laemmel and Laura Matula that follows one year in the life of four young people who do not know each other, but share something in common. They were all born on the same day. The show opens at the birthday celebrations for Phoebe (8), Bailey (12), Noorah (15), and Jonah (18). We watch the four children have similar experiences in their schools, homes and relationships, but see how they experience them completely differently. Phoebe struggles with anxiety that can make small things in the day feel difficult. Bailey is on the verge of becoming a young woman with recently separated parents and is trying to navigate through what seems to be ceaseless change. Noorah is a Muslim student in a school where she is the minority and is feeling the pressure of her teen years amplified by the feeling of being the sole representation of her culture for most of her friends. Jonah has been home schooled his entire life and is getting ready to start his life away from home and family. At the end of act one Noorah sings about how we might perceive each other differently if we couldn't make assumptions based on what we see, and who we might baselessly fear each other when we don't take the time to get to know one another in the song "I'm not Afraid of the dark." Act two opens on the lives and families of our four, Phoebe, Bailey, Jonah and Noorah, but while the stories continue on their trajectory, the actors have switched roles. Each of the leading actors now play each other and we watch an 18-year-old male walk through the life of a 15-year-old female, a young child experience life in the world of a teen on the brink of adulthood. The audience must ask themselves how they empathize differently for each character when they are portrayed by someone new. The show closes with our actors returned to their original roles, at their next birthday, a year further into each of their beautiful life journeys. The show will feature 70 young actors in two casts between the ages of 6-18.Performances will take place July 13th-Aug 5th, Thursday-Saturday at 7pm. All performances will take place at The Theater Bug, located at 4809 Gallatin Pike, Nashville in the back building of New Life Baptist Church. Tickets? www.ticketsnashville.com

          Catch Up, 2016    
2016 was a busy year for interactive projects at The Seattle Times. According to our (very informal) spreadsheet, we did about 72 projects this year, about half of which were standalone. That number surprised me: at the start of the year, it felt like we were off to a slow start, but the final total isn't markedly lower than 2015, and some of those pieces were ambitious.

The big surprise of the year was Under Our Skin, a video project started by four young women in the newsroom and done almost completely under the radar. The videos themselves examine a dozen charged terms, particularly in a Seattle context, and there's a lot of smart little choices that the team made in this, such as the clever commenting prompts and the decision not to identify the respondents inline (so as not to invite pre-judgement). The editing is also fantastic. I pitched in a little on the video code and page development, and I've been working on the standalone versions for classroom use.

Perhaps the most fun projects to work on this year were with reporter Lynda Mapes, who covers environmental issues and tribal affairs for the Times. The Elwha: Roaring back to life report was a follow-up on an earlier, prize-winning look at one of the world's biggest dam removal projects, and I wrote up a brief how-to on its distinctive watercolor effects and animations. Lynda and I also teamed up to do a story on controversial emergency construction for the Wolverine fire, which involved digging through 60GB of governmental geospatial data and then figuring out how to present it to the reader in a clear, accessible fashion. I ended up re-using that approach, pairing it with SVG illustrations, for our ST3 guide.

SVG was a big emphasis for this year, actually. We re-used print assets to create a fleet of Boeing planes for our 100-year retrospective, output a network graph from Gephi to create a map of women in Seattle's art scene, and built a little hex map for a story on DEA funding for marijuana eradication. I also ended up using it to create year-end page banners that "drew" themselves, using Jake Archibald's animation technique. We also released three minimalist libraries for working with SVG: Savage Camera, Savage Image, and Savage Query. They're probably not anything special, but they work around the sharp edges of the elements with a minimal code footprint.

Finally, like much of the rest of the newsroom, our team got smaller this year. My colleague Audrey is headed to the New York Times to be a graphics editor. It's a tremendous next step, and we're very proud of her. But it will leave us trying to figure out how to do the same quality of digital work when we're down one newsroom developer. The first person to say that we just need to "do more with less" gets shipped to a non-existent foreign bureau.

          How I built the ST3 guide    
On election day, voters in the Seattle metro area will need to choose whether or not to approve Sound Transit 3, a $54 billion funding measure that would add miles of light rail and rapid bus transit to the city over the next 20 years. It's a big plan, and our metro editor at the paper wanted to give people a better understanding of what they'd be voting on. So I worked with Mike Lindblom, the Times' transportation reporter, and Kelly Shea in our graphics department to create this interactive guide (source code).

The centerpiece of the guide is the system map, which picks out 12 of the projects that will be funded by ST3. As you scroll through the piece, each project is highlighted, and it zooms to fill the viewport. These kinds of scrolling graphics have become more common in journalism, in part because of the limitations of phone screens. When we can't prompt users to click something with hover state and have limited visual real estate, it's useful to take advantage of the most natural verb they'll have at their fingertips: scroll. I'm not wild about this UI trend, but nobody has come up with a better method yet, and it's relatively easy to implement.

The key to making this map work is the use of SVG (scalable vector graphics). SVG is the unloved stepchild of browser images — badly-optimized and only widely supported in the last few years — but it has two important advantages. First, it's an export option in Illustrator, which means that our graphics team (who do most of their work in Illustrator) can generate print and interactive assets at the same time. It's much easier to teach them how to correctly add the metadata I need in a familiar tool than it is to teach the artists an entirely new workflow, especially on a small staff (plus, we can use existing assets in a new way, like this Boeing retrospective that repurposed an old print spread).

Second, unlike raster graphic formats like JPG or PNG, SVG is actually a text-based format that the browser can control the same way that it does the HTML document. Using JavaScript and CSS, it's possible to restyle specific parts of the image, manipulate their position or size, or add/remove shapes dynamically. You can even generate them from scratch, which is why libraries like D3 have been using SVG to do data visualization for years.

Unfortunately, while these are great points in SVG's favor, there's a reason I described it in my Cascadia talk as a "box full of spiders." The APIs for interacting with parts of the SVG hierarchy are old and finicky, and they don't inherit improvements that browsers make to other parts of the page. As a way of getting around those problems, I've written a couple of libraries to make common tasks easier: Savage Query is a jQuery-esque wrapper for finding and restyling elements, and Savage Camera makes it easy to zoom and pan around the image in animated sequences. After the election, I'm planning on releasing a third Savage library, based on our <svg-map> elements, for loading these images into the page asynchronously (see my writeup on Source for details).

The camera is what really makes this map work, and it's made possible by a fun property of SVG: the viewBox attribute, which defines the visible coordinate system of a given image. For example, here's an SVG image that draws a rectangle from [10,10] to [90,90] inside of a 100x100 viewbox:

If we want to zoom in or out, we don't need to change the position of every shape in the image. Instead, we can just set the viewbox to contain a different set of coordinates. Here's that same image, but now the visible area goes from [0,0] to [500,500]:

And here's one where we've zoomed in on the lower-right corner, by viewing a 40-unit box starting at [60,60]:

Savage Camera was written to make it easy to manipulate the viewbox in terms of shapes, not just raw coordinates. In the case of the ST3 guide, each project description shares an ID with a group of shapes. When the description scrolls into the window, I tell the camera to focus on that group, and it handles the animation. SVG isn't very well-optimized, so on mobile this zoom is choppier than I'd like. But it's still way easier than trying to write my own rendering engine for canvas, or using a slippy map library like Leaflet (which can only zoom to pre-determined levels).

This is not the first time that I've built something on this functionality: we've also used it for our Paper Hawks and for visualizing connections between Seattle's impressive women in the arts. But this is the most ambitious use so far, and a great chance to practice working closely with an illustrator as the print graphic was revised and updated. In the future, if we can polish this workflow, I think there's a lot of potential for us to do much more interesting cross-media illustrations.

<p>"We're extremely pleased to have extended our long standing partnership with SDL to include SDL Web. We now cover SDL's entire language, structured content, and web content management portfolio. Acrolinx has already been integrated within SDL's translation technology and SDL Knowledge Center," said <span class="xn-person">Andrew Bredenkamp</span>, Founder and CEO, Acrolinx. "Acrolinx is an enterprise platform allowing customers to set goals for terminology, style, and tone of voice. &nbsp;The platform then provides guidance for the content contributors and governance for the organization - generating scorecards and dashboards for all your content."</p>

<p>"Content is today's currency for digital experiences (DX), and speaking with a consistent yet locally relevant tone of voice and in the right style is a direct reflection of your brand. Helping both regular and occasional content contributors to adhere to corporate guidelines is therefore of huge value to organizations these days," said <span class="xn-person">Thomas Labarthe</span>, EVP Business and Corporate Development at SDL. "The Acrolinx solution and its AI supported features make it faster and easier for editors to produce consistent, high-quality multilingual content, ultimately supporting customer acquisition and loyalty."</p>

An amazing video has emerged of long contrails left by a Boeing 787 flying over the east coast of Russia. The footage, shot from a Boeing 747 on June 17, shows the condensation trails left 33,000 feet in the air. "This contrail looks dark against the rising sun," the filmer wrote online. He explained the trails are the result of hot exhaust mixing with cold air with a high moisture content.

          Giant A380 jets coming to Honolulu   
SUBHEAD: It will cost the state of Hawaii $30 million for airport to accommodate these giant planes.

By Blaze Lovell on 29 June 2017 for Civil Beat -
(http://www.civilbeat.org/2017/06/these-giant-honu-planes-will-cost-hawaii-30m-to-accommodate/)

[IB Publisher's note: We think the state would do better to prepare its harbors for future ship travel between islands and to mainland sites.]

All Nippon Airways wants to fly the world’s largest aircraft to Honolulu, and the state of Hawaii is on board.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation plans to spend up to $30 million to outfit two gates at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport to serve the world’s largest commercial jumbo jet.

Officials believe accommodating All Nippon Airways’ huge plane may be worth the expense, however, due to potential increases in airport revenue and tourism.

The double-decker Airbus A380 has an average capacity of about 500 passengers, while the Japanese airline’s current planes flying to Honolulu carry up to 216 passengers. The Hawaii Tourism Authority estimates that Japanese tourists spend an average of $242.60 a day while they’re in the islands.

To accommodate the A380, the transportation department will expand a seating area in the international terminal, create a food court and build additional jet bridges at two gates to give passengers access to and from the plane’s second level.

Outside the terminal, the aircraft parking area will be reconfigured to accommodate the A380’s 80-meter wingspan. Baggage areas will also be expanded to accommodate the bigger load of passengers.

The improvements, which should begin in 2018 and finish in 2019, are part of a larger project to update the airport, said transportation department spokesman Tim Sakahara.

All Nippon Airways’ “Flying Honu,” one of the airlines’ three A380s, will start flying to Honolulu in 2019. The plane’s fuselage will be wrapped with an image of Hawaii’s most famous reptile, the sea turtle. The plane is powered by four Rolls Royce engines and has a maximum takeoff weight of 1.2 million pounds.

The transportation department has put out a bid for the gate project and has not received any responses yet. Sakahara said that the final cost may fluctuate depending on contract negotiations.

Honolulu will be the ninth U.S. airport to have facilities capable of docking the A380. The others include Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle and John F. Kennedy in New York City.

Bringing The Honu To Hawaii
Gov. David Ige met with All Nippon Airways officials to discuss flying the A380 to Hawaii during his trip to Japan in late 2015.

Cindy McMillan, a spokeswoman for the governor’s office, said that ANA executives promised to commit more planes to Hawaii if the state could make the improvements to service the ANA’s aircraft. Shortly after Ige’s visit, ANA placed an order for three A380s, the first requisitions Airbus received for the giant planes since 2013.

Sakahara said the governor then asked the transportation department to start studying what it would take to upgrade the airport to accommodate the plane.

“This is a strategically important move for Hawaii,” McMillan said. She said that in the future, other carriers may use the gates to fly in double-deckers, giving residents more travel options.


No other air carrier has expressed interest in flying the A380 to Honolulu so far, Sakahara said. Of the 20-plus airlines with service to Honolulu, only Korean Air and Qantas, which serves Australia, currently have the planes in their fleets.

Boeing recently acknowledged at the Paris Air Show that it sees no future in passenger travel for its version of the A380, the 747. It intends to make new 747s only for cargo transportation.

Though sales for smaller, twin-engine craft have trumped the A380 in recent years, Michael Boyd, president of the Colorado-based Boyd Group, which provides aviation consultation, said the gate upgrades will be worth the cost.

“Honolulu is the perfect market for the A380,” Boyd said. “It’s almost an imperative. Honolulu is facing a lot of competition around the world for the Japanese dollar.”

ANA currently flies 14 to 16 flights per week between Japan and Honolulu on Boeing 767s, which carry up to 216 passengers. The airline plans to replace its 767s with the new 787, which holds 240 people, on Honolulu routes even before it starts flying A380s to Oahu.

On average, the Honolulu flights are 90 percent full, airline executives said earlier this year, the Japan Times reported.

ANA has not said whether the A380s will replace smaller planes for all of its Honolulu flights once the airport renovations are completed. Either way, the A380 should increase the net amount of tourism dollars spent in Hawaii, said Eric Takahata, managing director for Hawaii Tourism Japan.

He said the total number of passengers arriving on ANA’s A380s aren’t as significant as the greater amount of money those passengers will spend. Airlines are reducing their economy classes to add more first class, business and premium economy passengers.

“If we can tax the infrastructure less but maintain or increase spending, that’s what we are aiming toward,” Takahata said.

ANA representatives could not be reached for comment.

Paying For The Upgrades
The state’s capital improvements budget allows the transportation department to spend up to $30 million just on improving the two gates.

Sakahara said the final cost of the project will depend on the construction contracts.

The Legislature approved a total of $446.6 million in capital improvements at the airport over the next two years.

The department will pay for the improvements to accommodate the A380s through bonds financed with airport revenue.

Wesley Machida, director for the Hawaii State Department of Finance, said that most of the airport’s $353 million in revenue from 2016 came from concessions, landing fees and rentals.

The airport brought in $145.5 million from vendors like car rental companies and restaurants. Airlines paid $66 million in usage fees (companies with heavier planes like the A380 would need to pay more, because the charges are based on weight).

Also, $115.4 million came from rentals of aeronautical facilities such as hangars. Non-aeronautical rentals such as storage for goods brought in $15.8 million.

Before the transportation department makes decisions on airport improvement projects, Sakahara said it communicates with airport tenants, as well as the Airlines Committee of Hawaii, which includes representatives of 20 airlines that operate in the state.

In regards to the A380 gate project, the department “wouldn’t have made these improvements unless an airline needs these improvements.”

It’s not yet clear how much additional revenue the airport will receive from A380 flights.

However, what the plane carries may be more of an economic advantage for Hawaii than the plane itself.

Each year, about 1.5 million tourists fly from Japan to Hawaii, and that amount is expected to increase to 1.6 million by the time ANA’s Flying Honu starts touching down in 2019. But because ANA hasn’t indicated how many A380 routes will fly to Honolulu, there are no specific estimates yet of the plane’s impact on tourism.

Tourists from Japan produce about $400 million in revenue for Hawaii’s tourism industry each year.

          How the New Plaza on Beacon Hill Is a Model for the Future of Seattle   
A racial utopia exists right here on Beacon Hill by Charles Mudede

This Saturday, June 17, hundreds of people will be in the new plaza across the street from Beacon Hill Station. They will be the crowd overflowing from the seventh annual Block Party at the Station, which happens on a small street, 16th Avenue South, on the west side of the historic building that houses El Centro de la Raza. The seventh party promises to be bigger and more def than the sixth, which was bigger and more def than the fifth. But the crowds who come for the party should come back when the event is over. Every day at Plaza Roberto Maestas is a block party, the kind that can happen only in an urban center.

The Rapper on the Light Rail

I'm heading south on a Link train. Night is falling on the city as the train rises from the ground and turns to the left on the elevated section of the line that runs into Beacon Hill Tunnel. The lights of the business district fall on the stadiums and manufacturing complexes of Sodo. The man sitting across me in the middle section of the car claims he is one of the top rappers in the 206. I have never heard of him. Where did he come from? He reads my thoughts from the expression on my face. He says: "You don't believe me, huh? Let's get off at the next stop, and I will show you." The train arrives at Beacon Hill Station. An elevator lifts us to ground level. He looks at me and then looks to his right and says: "Let's go there. I will download a beat and rap for you."

We walk to the cafe, the Station, which is closed at this time, 9 p.m., but its wi-fi is still on and available from the sidewalk. "What beat do you want me to rap to?" asks the rapper. I say, "Mobb Deep's 'Shook Ones Part 2.'" It's one of the greatest beats ever produced. It's a 1990s beat, and the young rappers are not accustomed to the hard slam of that old "boom bap." They have evolved during and adapted to the Atlanta "boom-boom" sonic environments. "Shook Ones" will trip the brother up.

But the rapper launches into heady, swirling lines that rhyme, partially rhyme, and don't rhyme at all. And because it all comes out of him so easily, he is able to play his lines like a horn instrument: speeding up, slowing down, going loud, going soft. Yes, this man can rap. But when he sees the 60 bus, he stops his performance and explains he has to bounce and will catch me another time. As I watch him dash across the street, I think to myself: That was the most perfect Station moment.

El Centro de la Raza

{{ image:1 }}

It was a beautiful birth. On October 11, 1972, activists connected with Seattle's Latino community entered the abandoned Beacon Hill School, claimed it, and began making demands. Their occupation of the building was challenged not only by the system but by the winter, which was unusually cold. For the next three months, protests happened at the building and at City Hall. The mayor at the time was Wes Uhlman. He is famous for entering power at the moment Boeing crashed and its work force was cut in half.

These deep cuts hit the city's entire economy hard. In fact, many of the activists who took over the empty school building came out of a program at South Seattle Community College that was cut due to the budget squeeze. After some resistance, the mayor and the city council decided to lease the property to the activists for a dollar a year. The founding members of the community center were not just Latino, however. It was a rainbow movement formed by the Four Amigos: the black American Larry Gossett, the Asian Bob Santos, the Native American Bernie Whitebear, and, the leader of this episode, Latino Roberto Maestas.

Plaza Roberto Maestas

Miguel Maestas, the current housing and economic development director of El Centro de la Raza, explains that his organization decided to build Plaza Roberto Maestas when, in 2003, it learned that Sound Transit had plans to construct a light rail station on a vacant plot of land across the street from its historic building. The plot on which the subway station would rise is where the South China Restaurant on Beacon Avenue used to be. It had the most diverse bar in the city. The spirit of the Four Amigos has always been strong in this part of town. The transit-oriented project cost $45 million, was designed by the local architecture firm SMR Architects, has 112 rental units for people making from 30 to 80 percent of the area median income (which means if you earn 30 percent of the median income, you pay about $465 for a one-bedroom apartment—a market-rate studio apartment on Beacon Hill costs around $900 to $1,000). On the first day the apartments were made available to the public, more than 1,000 people applied. The 112 units were filled almost immediately. The waiting list is as good as eternal. Maestas calls the situation heartbreaking. There is nearly not enough affordable housing in this city.

{{ image:2 }}

In January 2017, the cafe the Station moved into a space on the southeast corner of the plaza. The cafe, which now serves wine and food, faces the light rail station and its four elevators, which transport transit people to one of the deepest subways in the United States.

Luis Rodriguez, Owner of the Station

I buy a cup of iced tea and meet the owner of the Station, Luis Rodriguez. He has to be one of the most fascinating figures in this city. He is a Mexican American businessman, a Black Lives Matter activist, a supporter of radical leftist politics, and the founder of Seattle's biggest local hiphop festival, the Block Party at the Station, which happens this weekend. He recently moved his business from across the street into Plaza Roberto Maestas. We leave the Station, make a left, pass a bank (Seattle Credit Union), an empty space (which I hear will become a Mexican restaurant), and enter the plaza.

It is 13,000 square feet and open to the public. It can hold 650 people. It has a number of vendors under white tents selling food or fruit or sweet things like cupcakes. At the end of the plaza is the facade of the building that was occupied in the bad winter of 1972, and above it are rows of glass globes hanging from lengths of black wire. They sparkle in the summer light and sway in the breeze. The furniture is concrete slabs. There is also a stage. Luis explains to me that he wanted to have a part of this year's block party, which promises to be the best in its seven-year history, to happen here, but a number of difficulties relating to insurance are preventing this from happening.

{{ image:3 }}

Luis also shows me the award-winning artwork—the tile mosaics of Native Americans, the Space Needle, ferries, the volcano, giant leaves, farm workers, flowers, brown bare feet, Latino mothers and children, totem poles, and, of course, the founding fathers of the center, the Four Amigos. For Luis, this art and the diversity of the renters (many are not white) are what distinguishes this development from others and makes it an organic expression of the radical action that happened here in 1972.

Commemorating the First Revelation

It is Saturday. I'm standing in front of a sign that reads Shark Bite Food. On the other side of this sign is an amiable Latino man preparing a plate of ceviche, Peru's gift to the human senses. Shark Bite Food is open only on Fridays and Saturdays in the plaza, which tonight is warm and breezy. The clouds in the sky are fluffy. The sun is setting on the city. A blast of people has just exited the train station's elevators. My order is handed to me. It costs $10 and hits the spot. I eat it sitting on one of the concrete slabs. I look on my phone and learn that the London Bridge is under attack. The usual suspects on Twitter are blaming Islam, saying it is the religion of death. As I leave the plaza, I see women in hijabs carrying food and paper plates to the plaza's community room (which can hold 500 people). They are tranquil in the dusky breeze. I ask one what event they are preparing for, and she tells me: "At the end of the day, we are going to share a meal. It's Ramadan. Do you want to join us?" I explain that I have just eaten, thank her for the invitation, and walk to the station with the same breeziness as the twilight-colored clouds. recommended

          Even in Liberal Seattle and Washington State, Islamophobia Is On the Rise   
Local Muslims have been facing increased violence and harassment by Omar Ghabra

A few weeks before white supremacist Jeremy Christian allegedly stabbed two people to death on a Portland train for standing up to racist harassment, Arsalan Bukhari, the executive director of the Washington chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), stood before more than 1,000 people in Bellevue's opulent Meydenbauer Center. In his eight years working for the largest and most influential Muslim civil-rights organization in the United States, Bukhari had never seen so large a turnout for a local event hosted by the nonprofit. It was an extraordinary success. But as he would point out in his speech, these were extraordinary times.

An illustrious lineup of guests spoke at the May 7 dinner, including Washington State attorney general Bob Ferguson, who mounted a legal challenge to Trump's Muslim travel ban, and Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who delivered a prime-time speech on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

A festive ambience at this year's dinner reflected the early victories for the American Muslim community in the ongoing battle against what many perceive to be President Donald Trump's anti-Muslim agenda. Tailored Italian suits, flowing North African djellabas, designer hijabs, and vibrant salwar kameezes showcased the ethnic and geographic diversity of a religious tradition whose close to two billion adherents span the continents. A bystander could have easily mistaken the event for a large Muslim wedding.

There was certainly much to celebrate—federal judges had recently blocked Trump's repeated attempts to institute a travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries. The sold-out fundraiser raised a record-breaking $260,000 in a single night.

But, as the Portland killings demonstrated, it will take more than fundraisers and rallies to push back against the hate directed toward Muslims. Since Donald Trump's political ascendance, American Muslims have experienced a sharp uptick in hate-motivated violence and harassment. Numerous polls show that Muslims have become the most hated religious group in America, even more hated now than in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

Even liberal Seattle can't escape the hate.

Though Seattle and Washington State emerged as leaders in the resistance to the president and his anti-Muslim policies, the region has not been spared the bigoted and often violent consequences of Trump's rhetoric. Over the course of 2016, the CAIR Seattle office fielded more than 250 complaints of anti-Muslim incidents from across the state. Recorded incidents ranged from schoolyard bullying and street harassment to malicious beatings and vandalism of mosques.

In January, one week before Donald Trump was sworn in as our 45th president, an arson at a mosque in Bellevue—less than three miles from where the CAIR dinner was held—destroyed half of the building. Non-Muslims, too, have suffered the consequences of this rising tide of hatred, as evidenced by the March shooting of a 39-year-old Sikh man in Kent. The victim, who was wearing a turban, was working on his car in his own driveway when a white assailant yelled, "Go back to your own country," and pulled the trigger.

Flanked by three large American flags, Bukhari took a deep breath and greeted the audience: "My friends, you are here tonight because you know that we are in what might be the most consequential time of our lives."


On June 14, 2016—seven months after Donald Trump announced his plan "for a complete and total shutdown of Muslims coming into the United States," and five weeks before he accepted the Republican nomination for president—a 37-year-old Seattle man wrote a Facebook post threatening to go on a shooting spree at the Idris Mosque in Northgate. He claimed to possess an assault rifle and ammunition. The Seattle Police Department responded to the man's Greenwood Avenue home, where he barricaded himself inside. With more than a dozen police and SWAT vehicles surrounding his property, the man surrendered after a brief standoff.

Nearly one year later, congregants packed the Idris Mosque for the third night of Ramadan, a holy month when practicing Muslims abstain from food and water from dawn until dusk. Over the weekend, Jeremy Christian—a heavyset man who was known to local authorities and journalists as a racist extremist—boarded Portland's MAX light rail and allegedly began harassing two African American women, one of whom was wearing a hijab. Christian stabbed three men who attempted to intervene in the harassment. Two of them died.

The anxiety of the worshipers at the Idris Mosque in the wake of this harrowing episode became apparent even before I set foot on the property. As I took photos with my camera from across the street, two men nervously pointed at me from the mosque's parking lot. One of them eventually pulled out his phone and began recording. "With everything that's going on, you can't be too careful," he said after I explained my presence.

{{ image:1 }}

Inside the mosque, Mostafa Aly, an affable 40-year-old Egyptian man, broke his fast with a date in accordance with Islamic tradition. Aly has attended the Idris Mosque since he moved to Seattle to enroll in graduate school at the University of Washington 17 years ago. He came to Seattle with a background in programming and hoped to obtain a master's degree. But Aly's father, who financed his education, passed away before he completed the program. He was left with no choice but to start over.

Over the next few years, Aly developed a passion for cooking and spent many years working in restaurants across Seattle. "I taught myself, I took classes, I worked at all sorts of restaurants—American, Italian, Middle Eastern," he recalled. In 2010, he achieved his ultimate goal of starting his own place, opening Shawarma King on University Way, an establishment that would quickly become a neighborhood staple.

"This incident in Portland was shocking, of course," Aly said. "But these things have been getting worse for the past few years now." He feels the current animosity toward Muslims in America has surpassed post-9/11 levels.

The data seems to bear those feelings out. Just after Trump was elected in November, the FBI reported that 2015 saw the highest number of anti-Muslim hate crimes since 2001. Though the official 2016 hate crimes statistics won't be released until November, CAIR has just released a report showing a 57 percent increase in violence and harassment of Muslims and those perceived to be Muslims across the country in 2016.

Like many other Muslim Seattleites who were interviewed for this story, Aly offered a simple explanation: "It is all Trump," he explained. "He activated something terrible that was latent. And now there's no going back."

A Quinnipiac University Poll from December 2015, the month Trump announced his Muslim-travel-ban proposal, found that roughly half of all Republicans believe "mainstream Islam encourages violence against non-Muslims." Another poll at that time found that two-thirds of Republicans and half of all Americans believed Muslims living in the United States aren't doing enough to combat extremism in their own communities.

"Trump knew what he was doing," CAIR's Bukhari told me. "He was tapping into a fear that was already there, a fear that had been building up for more than a decade." Unlike many politicians, pundits, and American citizens who were dismissive of Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country, Bukhari and his colleagues believed Trump was serious. "We immediately began laying the groundwork for a legal challenge to this proposal," Bukhari asserted.

Though Trump isn't solely responsible for creating the atmosphere of anti-Muslim hatred that has proliferated throughout the country, he harnessed the toxic energy that had been building since 2001 and transformed it into something even more dangerous. At the height of the 2016 campaign, researchers at Georgetown University published a 72-page report titled "When Islamophobia Turns Violent: The 2016 US Presidential Elections," outlining a surge in anti-Muslim violence throughout the Republican nomination process and particularly after Trump's Muslim-travel-ban proposal.

{{ image:2 }}

Muslims in Washington State and Seattle have not been spared. Many of the state's 55 mosques and their respective communities have been targeted. Last spring, Peter Zieve, CEO of aerospace supplier Electroimpact, spearheaded a campaign to oppose the construction of a mosque in Mukilteo. On top of incidents at the Northgate and Bellevue mosques, a mosque in Redmond also reportedly faced repeated vandalism in the immediate aftermath of the election.

"My wife wears the hijab, and now strangers often treat us with racism and anger when they see it. It didn't used to be like this," said Aly, who is the father of three young children. Not unlike what the two African American women faced on Portland's MAX light rail, Aly recounted a series of incidents during which strangers harassed his family after they saw his wife's head scarf. These encounters ranged in severity from a routine but relatively benign middle finger pointed in his direction by passing motorists to a disturbing incident involving a man driving a large pickup truck, which he aggressively backed into Aly's vehicle during a traffic stop and then sped off.

Aly's wife participates in an online support group for Muslim women in the area, which has become an outlet for women wearing hijabs to share their experiences of being targeted. One woman wrote that a group of white women pulled off her hijab and yelled racial slurs while she was shopping with her daughter at the Walmart in Federal Way. Another recounted being spit on by a commuter while she was riding a bus from North Seattle to downtown.

Husam Rabi, a 57-year-old senior engineer at a major Seattle company has heard similar stories from women who attend his mosque. Rabi, who has served as a volunteer imam in Bellevue, Everett, and Kent, advised women who wear the hijab to take extra precautions, such as always carrying pepper spray to ward off would-be attackers and avoiding walking alone in public at night.

Maria Islam, a 28-year-old University of Washington medical student who has attended a number of mosques over the years that she's lived in Seattle, including some of those that were targeted, wasn't surprised that violent and hateful incidents were happening here. "To grow up as a Muslim in America is to be desensitized to these traumatizing incidents, because we've been experiencing them for almost two decades now," Islam said.

{{ image:3 }}

Despite living in a city where only 8 percent of voters chose Trump, where the embattled mayor delivered his most recent state of the city address from a mosque, and where thousands turned out to protest the administration's travel ban executive order—Seattle, like most progressive parts of the United States, is still a short drive away from Trump country.

Nonetheless, support for local Muslim communities from the general public and elected officials in the area has not gone unnoticed. Rabi found comfort in the response of the non-Muslim community and of local officials to hate incidents. "The mayor of Kent, the police chief, and Governor Jay Inslee have been incredibly helpful," he said. "I feel proud to live in Washington State, having open-minded, supportive government officials who have taken a stand on behalf of an embattled minority group."

Maria Islam, who is from Texas, "where most of the leadership openly espouses anti-Muslim views and policies," agreed: "What's been happening in Washington State at an institutional level is unfathomable to [my family back home]."

All the Muslim Americans interviewed for this story agreed that outreach to non-Muslims was the only antidote for the epidemic of hate that has consumed the country. For Rabi, these efforts include giving lectures at churches and community centers to foster understanding of Islam and Muslims. But he stressed that for those who are suspicious of Muslims, simple day-to-day interactions serve an important humanizing function.

"Our neighbors around here have been unbelievable," said Aly, pointing to a wall decorated with supportive postcards and letters steadily sent to the mosque since the election. But for Aly, who sold his restaurant in 2013, this may not be enough to make up for the threat of violence he and his family are living with. "I know some Muslim families in the area who have left the country because of this toxic environment," he said. "Honestly, it's not safe anymore."

Aly's wife and his three children are all natural-born American citizens. Since coming to the United States from Egypt, Aly had never given any consideration to leaving. "You are always home here," implores one of the signs posted on the fence surrounding the Idris Mosque.

"For the first time in my life," Aly said, "I'm not so sure." recommended

          One Day at a Time   
Hope You Enjoyed the Internet While It Lasted, Dears! by Ann Romano

MONDAY, APRIL 24

Since 1880, when it was gifted to President Rutherford B. Hayes by Queen Victoria, the White House’s Resolute desk has been used by presidents to help shape the face of the modern world. Since the presidency of John F. Kennedy, who installed the desk in the Oval Office, the Resolute—hewn from the mighty English oak of British Arctic exploration ship the HMS Resolute—has been an integral part of the White House, and was the preferred desk of Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. But then some asshole—some asshole who lost the popular vote by 2,864,974 votes—decided the Resolute desk wasn’t quite complete! “A man accustomed to wealth and its trappings, Trump has embraced life in the Executive Mansion, often regaling guests with trivia about the historic decor,” writes the Associated Press’ Julie Pace in her piece on Trump’s first 100 days in office. “With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk... a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president.” Yes, dears, you read that correctly: Donald Trump had a button installed on the Resolute desk, and when he pushes it, some poor bastard has to bring him a Coke. So this is the way the world ends—not with a bang, but with the fizz of carbonated, high-fructose corn syrup. (Note to self: Make Hubby Kip install a martini button on our IKEA desk.)


TUESDAY, APRIL 25

In the past few weeks, United Airlines has (1) beaten a passenger bloody, (2) allowed a goddamn scorpion to escape from an overhead compartment, and (3) kicked a couple off their honeymoon flight! And now... now they’re BUNNY MURDERERS. “Scandal-hit United Airlines is facing a new PR disaster—after a valuable giant rabbit died mysteriously on one of its planes,” gabs British gossip rag The Sun. “Three-foot Simon, destined to be the world’s biggest bunny, died in the cargo section of a Boeing 767 after flying out of Heathrow to a new celebrity owner in the US.” “Simon had a vet’s check-up three hours before the flight and was fit as a fiddle. Something very strange has happened and I want to know what,” fumed giant-rabbit breeder Annette Edwards. “I’ve sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.” “Well, that’s because you didn’t send them United,” explained United CEO Oscar Munoz, daintily dabbing at his mouth with a silk napkin after enjoying an immaculate lapin au vin. “My compliments to the chef!”


WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26

Hope you enjoyed the internet while it lasted, dears! “The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday outlined a sweeping plan to loosen the government’s oversight of high-speed internet providers,” reports the New York Times—adding that the plan is “a rebuke of a landmark policy approved two years ago to ensure that all online content is treated the same by the companies that deliver broadband service to Americans.” So what’s this mean for you? Well, it means companies like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T will now throttle certain sites and services, from news outlets to Netflix (and oooh, they hate Netflix). They’ll give preference to their own streaming services, and make you wait—or pay more—to access others. In short, your cable and phone companies now decide what news you read and what shows you watch—and they’ll likely charge you more for the privilege. According to the Times, corporate lackey and Trump-appointed FCC chairman Ajit Pai “said high-speed internet service should no longer be treated like a public utility with strict rules, as it is now. The move would, in effect, largely leave the industry to police itself.” As anyone who’s ever dealt with Comcast can attest, this should go great. Time to dust off the printing presses and try to remember what video stores are! (Those are... places where you can... rent YouTubes on... VHS? We think we’re remembering that right.)


THURSDAY, APRIL 27

Are you sick of music festivals packed with smelly plebeians? Are you willing to pay top dollar for a luxury festival featuring “the best in music, culture, art, and food all while surrounded by one of the most beautiful and pristine settings in the world”? Well, keep on wishing, because the Fyre Festival—held today in the Bahamas—was an absolute shit show. Conceived by old-timey rapper Ja Rule and random tech dude Billy McFarland, the Fyre Fest intended to offer a luxury glamping/concert-going experience with tickets ranging from $1,200 to $250,000 (!!) and performances from such luminaries as Blink-182. (Blink-182? That should’ve been the first red flag.) Instead, attendees arrived to find a poorly managed, chaotic tent city with little food, water, and electricity—but it got worse. When Blink-182 pulled out of the lineup (claiming they hadn’t been paid), the organizers were forced to shut the festival down and attempt to get everyone off the island... which was a catastrophe in and of itself. Perhaps worst of all, they had forgotten to order beer. And this just in: Ja Rule and McFarland have been hit with a $100 million lawsuit for fraud. Ouch! IN A RELATED STORY... United Airlines was jubilant today, telling reporters, “Our greatest thanks to the Fyre Festival for temporarily distracting everyone from our many problems. If you like, we can send over a case of tiny beers and dinner for some of your guests. Is giant rabbit okay?”


FRIDAY, APRIL 28

Today, in the continuing death of print media: The living equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard, Gwyneth Paltrow, has announced that she’s teaming up with Vogue editor Anna “EEEK!” Wintour to produce a print version of her website Goop. For newcomers to One Day at a Time, Goop is like SkyMall for the leisured class—selling such necessary products as Thermal Spring Water facial spray, and $185 cut-off jean shorts, and offering vitally important tips on how to steam one’s vagina. According to Women’s Wear Daily, after shuttering Self magazine, publisher Condé Nast has been looking for a suitable replacement... and since they couldn’t find one, they’re going with Goop. Expect the first issue of Goop magazine to debut in September, filled with articles such as, “Amsterdam’s Top 10 Gluten-Free Nail Stylists” and “Buy This $435 Tube of Wrinkle Cream Made from Ocelot Tears.”


SATURDAY, APRIL 29

Today was the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where in the past, members of the press and the president have roasted each other, thereby taking much of the tension out of a sometimes adversarial relationship. But this year? Oh, you know... Donald Trump. Who ruins everything. For everyone. Naturally Trump refused to attend the dinner because he is an orange, feckless coward who subsists on bluster and lies—but the event continued without him, turning into a joyous pep rally for the free press, with supportive words from journalistic luminaries such as Watergate reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. “When lying is combined with secrecy, there’s a pretty good roadmap in front of you,” Bernstein said. “Yes, follow the money, but also follow the lies.” Lightening the mood was Daily Show correspondent/comedian Hasan Minhaj, who told the crowd “no one wanted to do this [gig], so, of course, it landed in the hands of an immigrant.” In regard to Trump avoiding the dinner, Minhaj said, “The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight, it’d be hard for Vlad to make it. As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke.” MEANWHILE AT A TRUMP RALLY IN PENNSYLVANIA... “[Those journalists in Washington] are trapped at a dinner,” Trump told a throng of sign-waving supporters, “which will be very, very boring.” Yeah, he’s probably right. Just a bunch of people laughing at him.


SUNDAY, APRIL 30

So what exactly did President Trump accomplish in his first 100 days in office? Actually, A LOT! He attained historically low presidential approval ratings, for one thing. He was able to convince a Republican majority to say “NO” to every one of the promises he made to voters (like repealing Obamacare). That’s quite a feat! Plus, while other presidents made things happen quickly by skipping Congress and enacting executive orders, President Trump accomplished the opposite—writing orders that have largely been meaningless (like his tax reform plan) or blocked by the courts (like the Muslim travel ban). But that’s just the tip of the accomplishment iceberg, because Trump also succeeded where practically every other president has failed: According to the Washington Post, in a short 100 days, President Trump has lied or misled the American public 488 times! Sure, he wanted to hit 500—but as his supporters keep telling us, we just gotta give him a chance!

He was so influential that during the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, a movie entitled “Zoo” was introduced which commemorates Mr. Hands and his wonderful contributions to society.

          Re: OS Max 40 H wrist pin teflon bushings?   
Don't "fret" the wristpin yet! All the teflon pads I've seen had a stub that pushed into the (hollow) pin, with a cap that covered the end of the pin. I'm not sure how tight a fit would be advisable, but a worn one could easily be drilled out. And I suspect that Delrin would probably be as good or better than Teflon...not as slick, but still pretty slick, much more durable and likely easier to machine. They're not a simple disc or washer, anyway.

An engineer might provide a better opinion on material. I made some similar parts for Mr. Boeing (from Teflon), so many years gone by. Followed day shift on it, and their plan was hopeless. Of course, I got 'er done! I'd suggest finding a local modeller with a small metal lathe.  H^^ Steve

          War of words: virtual media versus mainstream press    

Deep Dish Television. RealNetworks. Free Speech TV. Paper Tiger. Just to name four.

When network television comes to mind, these names don't. You certainly won't find them in TV Guide. But do not feel ill-informed; a Nielsen rating they have never had.

Yet by the end of this week, as people across the planet watch the World Trade Organization try to sidestep the masses protesting its auspices, these tiny news organizations and others like them may have made more actual history than the free-trade ministers, or even the Seattle police.

They are part of the new virtual media and, without the help of the mainstream media - ABC, NBC, Reuters, Associated Press - they are sending hundreds of accounts from the riotous streets and orderly seminars to thousands tuning in around the globe.

If the mainstream media are like elephants, then these eclectic independents are like mosquitoes, buzzing their messages through cracks and virtual crannies too small and insignificant for CBS or The New York Times.

Unlike the mainstream press corps, they make no claims of being neutral or objective. They are part-activist, part-journalist, and say their coverage will not only help balance what they see as biased coverage by the corporate media, but also serve as a role model for a kind of democratic reporting made possible by new and emerging technologies.

It's their presence en masse, at what is being called the "Protest of the Century," that many say is historic - a prototype for the vast democratic media of the future.

"It opens up all kinds of avenues to people," says Eileen Quigley, director of Real Impact, a local company that specializes in streaming technology. "You're no longer just restricted to what gets fed to you on the evening news. Individuals are able to access content on their own."

Streaming sting Ms. Quigley supervises two video crews: one following the street protests, the other covering the daily press conferences. Yet it isn't the video that is revolutionary; it's the streaming that gives the mosquito media their sting.

Ordinarily, to get information off of the Web, you must download a file. Depending on the speed of your modem, this can take minutes or even hours.

However, streaming makes it possible for your computer to take in the digital information and show it on-screen at the same time. It could make the evening news obsolete. Why wait till 6 o'clock? At this very moment, you can go to www.wtowatch.org and review the week's anti-WTO press conferences, Tuesday's debate between Ralph Nader and Jagdish Bhagwati, or footage of demonstrators squaring off with police.

"We just let the camera run," Quigley says. "It's unedited. Some critics may not think that's particularly good, but we just want people to be able to see what really happened."

Inside the downtown war zone and shrouded in tear gas is the Independent Media Center (IMC). More than 400 reporters and producers are officially registered and covering the WTO conflict.

Since Labor Day a cadre of Seattle activists has worked to create the IMC in the Glen Hotel. Now the place is filled with computers, telephones, special transmission lines, and state-of-the-art streaming technologies.

"The streaming was donated by encoding.com, a Seattle Internet company," says Dan Merkle, a local attorney who put his practice on hold to help create the IMC. "In fact, they were an integral part of the overall strategy."

Ironically, encoding.com, as well as RealNetworks and its subsidiaries, are part of local high-technology and software industries leading America's charge toward the kinds of free trade so despised by the protesters.

RealNetworks founder Rob Glaser made his millions while at Microsoft, which only increases the irony because Microsoft, and Boeing, are the leading local proponents of the WTO agenda.

Video wizards Such generosity, combined with the sweat equity of many others, makes it possible for these activist-reporters to create their stories and file them for use around the world. An IMC Web site broadcasts a live audio stream, downloadable video text and photo files, and much more.

Indeed, a large house north of downtown has been turned into an editing suite. Video wizards have installed an AVID digital-editing system and each day turn footage into 30-minute and 60-minute programs. These are then shuttled to the IMC and streamed to satellites that feed everything from public and cable-TV stations to your home computer. You can access the IMC Web site now at www.indymedia.org.

"From the standpoint of all these independent media, the WTO couldn't have picked a worse place to hold their meeting," chuckles Bob Siegel, another local who spent weeks preparing for this event. "I mean, it's Seattle - we've got all the techies you'd ever want and all these companies specializing in everything they need to stream these stories all over the world.

"It's perfect that the WTO came here. Perfect."

          Comentário sobre Rússia produz novo lote de turbofans AL-31F3 por Cotrim   
Não tenho certeza, mas parece que essa versão não possui vetorização de empuxo, e sim as versões que equipam o SU30/33/35. Vejo que os Russos com as suas sempre inovações e atualizações, dando uma certa ênfase a manobrabilidade dos seus caças. Sei que algumas pessoas aqui vão dizer que os combates aéreos tendem a ser desenvolvidos fora do alcance visual. Porém, como vimos no recente abate do SU22 na Síria, mísseis podem falhar, ou simplesmente podem ser enganados com um bom sistema de guerra eletrônica embarcado. Nesse caso, não seria interessante o ocidente, digo, Lockheed, Boeing, Dessault, Saab, também considerarem isso? Seria possível uma versão de um F35 ou até mesmo um F15 com empuxo vetorado? Um abraço a todos e desculpe se meu questionamento não for um tanto pertinente.

Seattle, WA Mayor: Outgoing mayor Ed Murray’s endorsement of ex-U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan got most of the press on Thursday, but there have been a series of recent lower-profile endorsements in the Seattle mayoral race that haven’t really gone according to type: state Sen. Bob Hasegawa is generally considered the “labor” candidate in the race, but so far most of the labor endorsements in the race have gone to ex-state Rep. Jessyn Farrell, who, for lack of a better one-word pigeonhole, usually gets assigned the “urbanist” lane.

Most notably, Farrell got the backing of the Aerospace Machinists union on Thursday, who represent Boeing assembly-line employees and are probably the biggest local union prize. But she’s also recently gotten the backing of the local United Food and Commercial Workers (who backed Mike McGinn in the 2009 and 2013 elections), and even more surprisingly, Teamsters local 117. (That’s surprising because Hasegawa used to be a leader within the Teamsters, though that was for local 174, which is still expected to back him.) The UFCW, for their part, cite Farrell’s work in the legislature on the statewide minimum wage and on-the-job protections for pregnant employees.

CO-06: Democratic state Sen. Rhonda Fields had previously been mentioned as a possible challenger to GOP Rep. Mike Coffman next year in this swingy 50-41 Clinton district, but has yet to say anything publicly about running. However, EMILY’s List has reportedly had preliminary talks with Fields according to National Journal, which could mean she’s at least somewhat interested. So far the only noteworthy Democrats who have kicked off their campaigns here are men, which could help Fields stand out as the only prominent woman in the race if she runs.

Fields was only first elected to the state Senate last year after serving in the state House, but she notably hails from the heart of this suburban district in Aurora, unlike some of the announced Democratic candidates, who come from outside the 6th in Denver. The current Democratic field presently includes attorney and veteran Jason Crow, attorney David Aarestad, and clean-energy expert Levi Tillemann.

FL-07: On Thursday, Republican state Rep. Mike Miller kicked off his campaign against first-term Democratic Rep. Stephanie Murphy in Florida’s 7th District, which is located in Orlando and its northern suburbs. Miller won his second term 53-47 last year even as his downtown Orlando state House seat swung from a narrow Obama win to a Clinton 53-41 edge, according to Florida political data expert Matthew Isbell. He thus has experience winning tough races in territory with similar partisanship to the 7th, which went from a razor-thin Obama victory to to a voting 51-44 for Clinton.

Miller’s entry into the race gives Team Red a potentially top-tier candidate in what is shaping up to be one of their biggest offensive opportunities nationally, but he may end up facing a primary against another GOP heavyweight first. State Sen. David Simmons, who represents roughly three-fifths of this congressional seat in the state Senate, once again reiterated on Thursday that he’s “98 percent” likely to run, although he did not give any timeframe for when he might announce his decision.

MN-01: Iraq War Army veteran Dan Feehan recently confirmed that he will run for southern Minnesota’s 1st District next year, becoming the third noteworthy Democrat to join the race to succeed Democratic Rep. Tim Walz, who left the 1st open to run for governor. Feehan previously served as an official in the Defense Department and only recently moved back to the district after growing up there, while this seems to be his first bid for elected office. There’s no word on whether Feehan will abide by the state nominating convention process before the primary next year.

Feehan joins a Democratic field that includes former state Sen. Vicki Jensen and businessman Colin Minehart in this historically swingy district, which lurched rightward from 50-48 Obama to 53-38 Trump in 2016. Democratic state Sen. Nick Frentz had previously said he was thinking about running here, but he recently stated that “right now, [he’s] leaning against” jumping in.

NY-22: Just days after he joined the race, Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi earned the endorsement of New York’s powerful senior senator, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The senator’s rare foray into House recruiting demonstrates unambiguously that Brindisi will have national party support in his challenge against GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney in this Utica and Binghamton-area seat, which swerved from a razor-thin Romney win to a 55-39 Trump edge last year. Brindisi’s moderate record could theoretically give a primary opponent an opening with the base, even though it’s likely a plus with swing voters in this historically GOP seat. However, he appears unlikely to face a major primary foe.

TX-32: Former Hillary Clinton staffer Ed Meier has scored the backing of Obama’s ex-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew in a recent fundraising email ahead of next year’s Democratic primary. The support of a former cabinet member with no ties to the district might normally not be that noteworthy, but Lew is the type of official who likely knows a whole host of wealthy and well-connected people who might donate. Meier currently faces civil rights attorney Colin Allred in a competitive Democratic nomination battle to take on GOP Rep. Pete Sessions in this suburban northern Dallas seat, which flipped from 57-41 Romney to 49-47 Clinton.

PA-07: Democrats look like they have a top-tier recruit to take on GOP Rep. Pat Meehan in the form of state Sen. Daylin Leach, who appears set to announce a bid next month, but Leach won't have the Democratic primary to himself. Paul Perry, a former teacher, also recently launched a campaign, and though he doesn't have a prominent background, he does have an interesting profile: He's the adoptive son of two fathers (both military veterans), and his biological mother (who he says "struggled with addiction") was pregnant with him while in prison.

Perry also has the support of a new organization called Brand New Congress, which is run by former Bernie Sanders staffers and aims to elect people who support Sanders' political platform. Several other Democrats are also running in this swingy district in the Philadelphia suburbs, including attorney Dan Muroff, realtor Elizabeth Moro, and research scientist Molly Sheehan.

ME Ballot: Electoral-reform proponents scored a major—and unexpected—victory on Wednesday when Maine’s state legislature failed to advance a measure to repeal the state’s new instant-runoff voting (IRV) law, leaving it on course for implementation in 2018. In a non-binding opinion issued in May, Maine’s state Supreme Court opinion said that IRV (sometimes called ranked-choice voting) was unconstitutional for state-level general elections, but not for primaries or federal races. That opinion gave IRV’s opponents, who are mostly Republicans but include some Democrats, a pretext to unsuccessfully try to repeal the voter-approved statute, but that effort failed.

Republicans control the state Senate while Democrats run the state House, and the two parties reached a deal to hold a vote on a constitutional amendment that would eliminate the apparent legal conflict. However, it was all political theater, because GOP opposition meant that the amendment would never reach the two-thirds supermajorities needed to send it to a voter referendum for eventual ratification.

After the amendment predictably failed last week, the Senate proceeded to pass a billto fully repeal IRV, with a few Democrats siding with the Republicans. However, under pressure from activists—who had threatened to place a “people’s veto” on the ballot to block any repeal legislation—the House instead passed a competing measure. That proposal would implement IRV for primaries and federal races while merely suspending it for state general elections unless and until the constitution were amended to make that aspect kosher. Faced with differing bills, the opposing chambers failed to reach any compromise, taking repeal off the table this year as the 2017 legislative session draws to a close.

So where does that leave Maine voters? With the legislature at an impasse, the current legal landscape has IRV slated for full implementation starting in 2018. But thanks to the state Supreme Court’s advisory opinion, there will almost certainly be lawsuits to block IRV from going into effect for state general elections, which have a good chance of success. However, barring a major change of course by either legislative Democrats or the high court, IRV will be used in all primaries next year, plus the November general elections for the U.S. House and Senate.

As a result, Maine will become the first state in America to adopt instant-runoff voting statewide, although utilizing it for state-level general elections would have been the most important aspect of this reform since no candidate has won a majority in nine of the state’s last 11 gubernatorial races. Hopefully, if this more inclusive electoral system produces meaningful changes in primary outcomes on both sides of the aisle, voters of all stripes will demand their legislators pass a constitutional amendment to finally implement IRV for all races.

Voting Rights Roundup: In May, Donald Trump created a “Voting Integrity Commission” that has now launched the opening barrage in its campaign to undermine confidence in the electoral process. The board is proposing to scrutinize each state’s voter registration records and intimidate the states into conducting voter registration purges—and it’s named America’s most prominent voter-fraud scaremonger to the commission itself. These actions are designed to give Trump and congressional Republicans a pretext to finally impose new voting restrictions at the national level.

Where Are They Now?: On Thursday, Trump nominated Republican former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison to become the next U.S. ambassador to NATO. Hutchison’s 1993 Senate special election landslide to succeed Bill Clinton’s first Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen gave Texas two GOP senators simultaneously for the first time since Reconstruction. She made an ill-fated Republican primary challenge to then-Gov. Rick Perry in 2010 that saw her lose 51-30, after which she ultimately retired from office in 2013.

AZ-Sen: This could be a very big get for Democrats if it pans out. Earlier in the week, the New York Times tantalizingly reported that Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton was "believed to be considering a campaign" against Sen. Jeff Flake, one of just a tiny handful of vulnerable Republican senators up for re-election next year. Now the Arizona Republic offers just a little bit more, saying Stanton "is expected to make a decision about his 2018 intentions this summer."

There's no direct quote from Stanton that he's even weighing the race, but the context here is remarks Stanton recently made excoriating the GOP's attempt to repeal Obamacare, which he called "an all-out assault on the people of Arizona." As the top elected official in Arizona's largest city, Stanton already represents about 22 percent of the state, giving him a big perch from which to launch a campaign. He'd also be term-limited come 2019, when the mayoralty next goes before voters, so he'd be looking for a new job soon enough anyway. At just 47 years old, even a tough campaign against Flake would make sense, since Stanton's made it evident that he wants to keep moving upward politically.

However, it's also possible that he could be eyeing a bid for governor, something he telegraphed with a speech a few months ago excoriating GOP Gov. Doug Ducey, who, like Flake, is also up for a second term in 2018. This would also be a challenging race for Stanton, but with congressional Republicans intent on fulfilling their suicide pact with Donald Trump, it may be that Flake is looking like the juicier target these days.

WI-Gov: Democratic Madison Mayor Paul Soglin has previously expressed his interest in challenging GOP Gov. Scott Walker next year, and he now says “a decision will probably be made sometime around Labor Day,” while he’s “preparing” to run for both governor and re-election in 2019. With a career as mayor that includes three separate tenures over the past five decades, it’s unclear just how enthusiastic Soglin is about only now seeking higher office.

Democrats thus far have no noteworthy candidates in the running to face Walker, who will likely seek a third term despite no official announcement yet. However, several other candidates are currently considering it for Team Blue, including state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, Jefferson County District Attorney Susan Happ, and a few others.

NV-03: According to the Nevada Independent's Jon Ralston, professional golfer Natalie Gulbis, a D-lister whose name made every sad roster of celebrity Trump backers just below Scott Baio's, has met with the NRCC about a possible run for Nevada's 3rd Congressional District. According to an unnamed GOP operative, "Republicans are excited about Gulbis," who we guess would be the first full-time golfer to make it to Washington. Oh, wait, whoops. The second.

What's a bit surprising here is that the GOP certainly has other options for this seat (which will likely soon be open, as freshmen Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is almost certain to launch a Senate bid soon), including state Sen. Scott Hammond, who recently said he's exploring a run for the House. However, a massive problem lurks for them in the form of wealthy perennial candidate Danny Tarkanian, who lost a squeaker to Rosen last year and sounds eager to run again. Perhaps Gulbis tests better against him in a primary? We'll see.

Meanwhile, the first possible Democratic name has also surfaced, per Ralston, who says that education activist Susie Lee "is believed to be interested." Lee ran in the neighboring 4th District last year and finished third in the Democratic primary with just 21 percent of the vote, though the eventual winner, now-Rep. Ruben Kihuen, had the backing of Harry Reid's powerful political machine—a difficult force for anyone in Nevada to beat. Lee might be appealing to DC recruiters because of her personal wealth (she self-funded her campaign with about $678,000), and because there aren't too many alternatives in this district that Trump narrowly won, 48-47.

          Bram Stoker, el cuentista irlandés   
Abraham, Bram Stoker
Ahora que nos acaba de dejar Gabriel Gª Márquez, es un buen momento para hablar de Bram Stoker (1847-1912). Hay un libro, Cuentos de Medianoche (Ed. Valdemar), que me ha resultado bastante llamativo. Lo normal es asociar a  este escritor irlandés a su obra inmortal (nunca mejor dicho) Drácula (1897), y pensar por ello que sólo se dedicaba a estos menesteres del terror. En esta colección sorprende con una gran variedad de temas, siempre dentro del estilo gótico. Se inicia, sí, con un “descarte” de Drácula, El sueño en el panteón, más conocido como El invitado de Drácula, que podría figurar, de hecho iba a figurar, en la gran obra pero fue eliminada por demasiado digresiva. Pero enseguida aparecen todo tipo de relatos de lo más dispar que muestran a un escritor que no es sino un señor irlandés que hace eso que tanto gusta a los irlandeses: contar historias. El espectro de la perdición es, por ejemplo, un cuento de fantasmas infantil, de los que contaban las madres góticas a sus hijas para que no se pudiesen dormir jamás. Una estrella criminal y Muerte entre bastidores son cuentos policiacos ambientados en el mundo del espectáculo que Stoker conoció bien merced a su relación laboral con el actor Henry Irving. La empalizada roja es aventura y piratería en los misteriosos mares malayos, hoy más misteriosos que nunca porque engullen boeings 777 y los transportan a otras dimensiones. También se pueden encontrar aquí relatos realmente crueles y salvajes, como Los dualistas o La squaw, quizá el que más me ha gustado, o dedicados a vampiros más terrenales y que a todos nos asaltan, como El prestamista. Al final aparece Las nupcias de la muerte, un extracto de la novela La joya de las siete estrellas, que no leí, pues, descrita con el reclamo de una “novela macabra y atmosférica”, creo que algún día terminaré por leer ésta completa.


Slains Castle, Escocia ¿verdadera morada del conde Drácula?
En fin, a raíz de este libro nos podemos componer otra imagen de Bram Stoker, que solía maquinar sus creaciones en un restaurante, The Breakfast Room, comiendo carne de buey y bebiendo y recibiendo invitados con los que intercambiaba ideas. La de Una estrella criminal, por ejemplo, le fue brindada nada menos que por el presidente Teodoro Roosevelt, y la de Drácula, por un especialista en folklore rumano de la Universidad de Budapest de nombre Arminius Vambery. De hecho, parece que no hay mucho de Rumanía en esta historia, sino más bien de las Highlands escocesas, y el profesor sirvió más bien para adaptarla a las tradiciones del este europeo. Lo de situarla en el castillo transilvano de Bran, por ejemplo, parece un guiño de Bram Stoker a su propio nombre… Para quien esté interesado en todo este asunto genealógico-vampírico, se acaba de publicar Eternamente Tuya, de Álvaro Bermejo (Ed. Algaida), que parece ahondar en estas investigaciones.

          Congress Will Make Sure Taxpayers Keep Sending Money to Terrorists    
By: Alice Salles
5022968374_44ccf2dd1a_z.jpg

One of the few elected Democratic lawmakers with an extensive anti-war record, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), has combined forces with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to push legislation through both the House and the Senate that would bar federal agencies from using taxpayer-backed funds to provide weapons, training, intelligence, or any other type of support to terrorist cells such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, or any other group that is associated with them in any way. The Stop Arming Terrorists Act is so unique that it’s also the only bill of its kind that would also bar the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries that support (directly or indirectly) terrorists such as Saudi Arabia.

To our surprise — or should we say shame? — only 13 other lawmakers out of hundreds have co-sponsored Gabbard’s House bill. Paul’s Senate version of the bill, on the other hand, has zero co-sponsors.

While both pieces of legislation were introduced in early 2017, no real action has been taken as of yet. This proves that Washington refuses to support bills that would actually provoke positive chain reactions not only abroad but also at home. Why? Well, let’s look at the groups that would lose a great deal in case this bill is signed into law.

An Army of Lobbyists 

With trillions of tax dollars flowing to companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and even IBM, among others, companies that invest heavily in weapons, cyber security systems, and other technologies that are widely used in times of war would stand to lose a lot — if not everything — if all of a sudden, the United States chose to become a nation that stands for peace and free market principles.

For one, these companies have a heavy lobbying presence, ensuring that lawmakers sympathetic to their plight are elected every two years. When the possibility of a new conflict appears on the horizon, these companies are the first to lobby heavily for action.

But this dynamic isn’t a secret. We all know that the crony capitalist system that thrives in Washington, D.C., is the very bread and butter of politics in America. After all, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the nation in his farewell address in 1961 that “an immense military establishment and a large arms industry” were becoming the great powers behind U.S. politics, and that if we weren’t weary of this influence, we would risk living in a perpetual state of war.

Still, we allowed it to take over. And there isn’t one industry powerful enough to counter this destructive authority. With the support of an army of well-established and connected millionaire lobbyists, the war machine operating in Washington is so powerful that anything can be turned into an existential threat.

Any conflict abroad that has absolutely no importance or that poses literally no threat to the common American is inflated to become a threat to the American way of life. They hate us “for our freedom.” Therefore, we must show them what democracy looks like.

The Pro-War "Social Justice" Angle

Without the same kind of powerful and wealthy team behind the cause for sanity and peace, this army of big money and big lobbyists has single-handedly put us and many generations to come in debt over Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, and now Syria. And as the marketing machine behind this kind of lobbying effort taps into the social justice trend that has infiltrated every aspect of our culture in recent years, these organizations have learned that they will get even broader support from the public if they add feminist, anti-poverty, and pro-equality messages to their pro-war efforts.

Take the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, for instance, which, as NBC has reported, originated with “Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former vice president of the World Bank for the Africa region and a senior advisor on Africa Economic Development Policy for the Open Society Foundations”  — a George Soros-backed foundation. In no time, the social media “effort” had become the most effective lobbying force behind the expansion of the never-ending war on terror. And whether it was meant to promote this outcome or not, it helped the United States easily invest more tax dollars into an unwinnable war.

As you can see, even if Gabbard and Paul managed to use all of their time to force the Stop Arming Terrorists Act through Congress so it could get to President Donald Trump’s desk, the powers at play in Washington would do their best to sweep this effort under the rug. Not because individuals involved in pro-war lobbying are, perhaps, thirsty for war per se, but because the system under which they operate allows for bad incentives to produce a great deal of wealth and influence, tilting the balance toward evil.

Without a state that can be bribed, companies would be left to fend for themselves and stay afloat by making customers… happy. And you can’t make customers happy if all you have to offer is war.

          СМИ узнали о полете самолета-разведчика США у российской базы в Сирии   

Американский самолет-разведчик P-8 Poseidon 30 июня совершил разведывательный полет вблизи российской военно-морской базы в сирийском городе Тартус. Об этом сообщает ​«Интерфакс» ​со ссылкой на ​данные западных сайтов, отслеживающих передвижения военной авиации.  P-8 Poseidon в пятницу вылетел с авиабазы Сигонелла на Сицилии и направился к берегам Сирии. Он совершил несколько облетов близ Тартуса. При этом он находился на расстоянии порядка 40 км от российской базы. Изображение карты маршрута самолета было также опубликовано в Twitter портала CivMilAir, отслеживающего передвижение военной авиации. На нем видно, что самолет с бортовым номером 16-8852 совершил несколько кругов возле побережья Сирии.  Осенью 2016 года этот же самолет совершил несколько полетов неподалеку от побережья Крыма.  Кроме того, в Восточном Средиземноморье вблизи Сирии полет провел разведывательный самолет RC-135V. В целом, согласно данным «Интерфакса» за последнюю неделю у сирийского побережья американские самолеты разведчики совершили более 10 подобных полетов. Ранее, 23 июня, стало известно, что самолет P-8A Poseidon проводил наблюдение за запуском российских ракет «Калибр» по позициям исламистов в Сирии. Кроме того, 26 июня самолеты-разведчики США совершили несколько полетов возле границ России. Интерес американских военных вызвали военно-морские базы в Балтийском море, побережье Крыма и база в Тартусе. Патрульный противолодочный самолет P-8A Poseidon был введен в эксплуатацию ВМС США в 2013 году. Он создан на основе Boeing 737 и предназначен для обнаружения и уничтожения подводных лодок, проведения наблюдательных и разведывательных миссий. Источник новости

          Британская авиакомпания за девять лет сократила выбросы углекислого газа на 22%   

Британская авиакомпания Virgin Atlantic снизила выбросы углекислого газа на 22% за последние 9 лет, сообщает портал Environmental Leader.  Компании удалось уменьшить выбросы с более чем 5,2 тонн в год до 4 тонн в год. Более 99% прямых выбросов авиакомпании приходится на использование реактивного топлива. Virgin выступила с рядом инициатив в этой области. Например, компания предложила инвестировать в авиапарк энергоэффективных самолетов Boeing 787, перемещать самолет по территории аэропорта на одном двигателе вместо двух, отслеживать погоду в режиме реального времени для оптимизации планирования полетов и строго ограничивать по весу всех изделий на борту самолета. Авиакомпания также начала сотрудничать с новозеландской LanzaTech, специализирующейся на создании низкоуглеродных химических веществ и топлива. С 2011 года партнеры работают над созданием низкоуглеродного биотоплива на основе этанола из отходов промышленных газов от металлургического производства. Корпорация по производству авиационной техники Jetlineer Boeing предположила, что использование такого топлива позволит снизить выбросы на 80%. По мере того, как ученые выпускали все больше исследований о перспективах биотоплива в авиации, в 2008 году ряд авиакомпаний основали Группу потребителей устойчиво производимого авиационного топлива (SAFUG). Организация объединяет 33% потребителей авиационного топлива. Их целью является свести выбросы к минимуму к 2020 году. Cогласно SAFUG, устойчивое авиационное биотопливо соответствует стандартам реактивного топлива или превосходит их, и при этом имеет значительно более низкие показатели выбросов углерода в течение своего жизненного цикла по сравнению с горючим из ископаемого сырья, а также не ставит под угрозу безопасность продовольственных культур, питьевой воды и экосистем. Член SAFUG, компания JetBlue, в 2016 году подписала одно из крупнейших соглашений о возобновляемом топливе в истории авиации. Оно подразумевает, что в ближайшие 10 лет компания будет покупать смешанное топливо, в составе которого 70% традиционного горючего и 30% полученного из биологических ресурсов. Оно позволяет снизить выброс парниковых газов без потерь в производительности и безопасности. По данным Международной организации гражданской авиации (ИКАО), устойчиво производимое авиационное биотопливо является одной из наиболее перспективных инновационных технологий, которые могут внести существенный вклад в экологичность авиационного сектора.

          Despegue vertical y vuelos a 500 km/h: la aeronave de combate que desarrolla EEUU   
LA BATALLA ENTRE DOS CANDIDATOS

Estados Unidos tiene un programa para hacer más rápidos y seguros los helicópteros y aprovechar así sus ventajas: maniobrabilidad en poco espacio y precisión de aterrizaje


El despegue y aterrizaje vertical tiene obvias ventajas tácticas, ya que permite operar desde bases pequeñas y poco preparadas y llevar tropas y munición exactamente al punto necesario. El problema es que el único vehículo capaz de un verdadero aterrizaje y despegue vertical, con la posibilidad de flotar en el sitio, es el helicóptero. Y como dice un viejo refrán de los Marines: "Si las alas van más deprisa que el fuselaje, es un helicóptero y, por tanto, inseguro".

No solo los aparatos de ala giratoria son objetivamente menos seguros que los de ala fija sino que, peor aún, son muy lentos y de ‘patas cortas’: el enorme gasto energético que supone mantenerlos en el aire hace que tengan un alcance muy reducido. Estas dos son las principales pegas que intenta resolver el programa de I+D Future Vertical Lift (FVL, sustentación vertical futura) para desarrollar un vehículo rápido (capaz de alcanzar alrededor de 300 mph, cerca de 500 k/h) y capaz tanto de despegue y aterrizaje vertical como de mantenerse suspendido en el aire y de operar en condiciones de elevada altura y temperatura (‘high and hot’) con un alcance de misión de más de 420 km y de 850 km en crucero. Para el cual, y descartados ya varios candidatos iniciales, hay dos proyectos sustancialmente diferentes.

Por una parte está el V-280 Valor diseñado por Bell Helicopters y Lockheed Martin, un convertiplano similar al V-22 Osprey pero más pequeño, que utiliza mucha tecnología derivada de su hermano mayor y aprovecha las lecciones aprendidas en su uso. Y por el otro está el SB-1 Defiant de Sikorsky y Boeing, un helicóptero con doble rotor coaxial contrarrotatorio y hélice propulsora basado en el demostrador tecnológico Sikorsky X2, que ha alcanzado ya los 460 km/h.



Los dos proyectos compiten ahora por conseguir el contrato para convertirse en el candidato intermedio del programa FVL, que en conjunto pretende reemplazar hasta 25 modelos diferentes de helicópteros del inventario EEUU para mediados de la década de 2030. Como elemento de comparación, el actual helicóptero de transporte básico de las fuerzas armadas EEUU, el UH-60 Black Hawk, tiene una velocidad de crucero de 150 nudos (280 km/h) y un alcance de combate máximo de 320 millas náuticas (590 km).

V-280 Valor: rotando hélices

El diseño del V-280 Valor es similar al de su pariente ya activo, el V-22 Osprey: se trata de aparatos híbridos dotados de alas en que van montadas góndolas de motor y dos grandes hélices contrarrotatorias que pueden cambiar de posición, alternando entre un plano de rotación horizontal (para el vuelo estático, como un helicóptero) y el plano vertical (para el avance, como un avión). Esto les permite combinar la velocidad de los aviones de ala fija con la capacidad de aterrizaje y despegue vertical y de suspensión de los helicópteros, aunque sea a costa de otros problemas.

Así el mecanismo de rotación de las hélices es complejo mecánicamente, lo que aumenta el peso del aparato y lo hace más vulnerable a averías; la distancia entre ambas hélices provoca que si una de ellas deja de funcionar, el aparato sea incontrolable. Además, la práctica ha demostrado que en el régimen de vuelo de transición entre vuelo horizontal y vertical, mientras las hélices cambian de plano, se pueden producir efectos aerodinámicos complejos que pueden llegar a provocar una pérdida de sustentación. Los motores del V-22 han demostrado ser, además, vulnerables a la ingestión de polvo levantado por el propio aparato, lo que ha causado accidentes con víctimas mortales.

A cambio, el diseño permite misiones imposibles con otro tipo de vehículos, al combinar una velocidad y un alcance que ningún helicóptero convencional puede conseguir. Con una velocidad de 500 km/h, se hace posible cubrir un país del tamaño de Afganistán o Irak desde una única base central, ya que cualquier zona queda a poco más de una hora de vuelo. Un ejemplo concreto es el establecimiento en 2013 de la Fuerza Aerotransportada de Tareas Especiales de los Marines EEUU para Respuesta de Crisis en África en la base sevillana de Morón, cuyas misiones cubren el continente africano e incluyen refuerzo de embajadas, evacuación de personal, ayuda humanitaria y formación de aliados. La unidad, compuesta por unos 850 soldados, depende para sus misiones de los MV-22B Osprey, únicos aparatos que cuentan hoy con la adecuada mezcla de capacidades para poder transportar en pocas horas hasta una compañía de Marines a casi cualquier lugar del norte de África.

A diferencia del Osprey, el cambio de plano de rotación afecta solo al eje de la hélice y no al motor completo: así hace el mecanismo más sencillo y fiable

El V-280 Valor, cuyo primer prototipo está ya en avanzado estado de montaje, es más pequeño que el V-22 y considerablemente más ligero, ya que hace extenso uso de materiales compuestos, especialmente en las alas. Está diseñado para volar con cuatro tripulantes y 14 soldados completamente equipados y, a diferencia del Osprey, el cambio de plano de rotación afecta tan solo al eje de la hélice y no al motor completo, lo que hace el mecanismo más sencillo y fiable. La transmisión está diseñada de modo que si un motor falla ambas hélices pueden rotar, evitando desequilibrios. Tiene cola en V, dispone de tren de aterrizaje retráctil y de un sistema de vuelo con redundancia triple, además de poder integrar un casco para los pilotos derivado del desarrollado para el F-35, capaz de mostrar información según su línea de visión.

La posición elevada de las hélices permite un fácil ingreso y salida del aparato, cuya cabina es comparable (y de hecho similar) a la del UH-60 Black Hawk. Dos amplias puertas facilitan entradas y salidas y permiten campos de fuego abiertos para armamento montado en ellas. Además, el V-280 puede llevar cañones, cohetes o misiles para apoyar a las fuerzas de tierra; el fabricante afirma que incluso puede lanzar drones en vuelo. Como indicación de hacia dónde van las tendencias de la guerra futura, el Valor incluye en los asientos de la cabina un sistema de carga inalámbrica para los aparatos electrónicos de la infantería, como radios, ordenadores o sistemas de navegación o visión nocturna.


El aparato tiene una velocidad de crucero de 280 nudos (520 km/h) y máxima de 300 nudos (560 km/h), un alcance máximo que supera los 3.900 km y un rango de misión de 900 a 1.400 km. El peso máximo al despegue se situará en unos 13.600 kg, y dobles ganchos de carga le permitirán elevar 4.500 kg externamente, lo que le permite llevar un cañón M777A2 de 155 mm colgado hasta a 280 km/h. El consorcio constructor espera que cada ejemplar esté en el rango de precio de los helicópteros Blackhawk, y sueña con conseguir pedidos de entre 2.000 y 4.000 unidades (incluyendo tal vez una versión armada de ataque) para rentabilizar la inversión.

SB-1 Defiant, un helicóptero con empujón

El otro contendiente para el programa FVL es el SB-1 Defiant de Sikorsky y Boeing, que es un helicóptero más convencional pero con algunas características propias con cierto historial de fracasos. Para alcanzar las capacidades exigidas por el concurso, el SB-1 tiene una configuración de helicóptero con dobles rotores contrarrotatorios coaxiales como los que se ha especializado en desarrollar el fabricante ruso Kamov. Este diseño ofrece ventajas respecto a la potencia útil, el menor nivel de ruido y especialmente el carecer de rotor de cola al estar exento del par de giro producido en un helicóptero convencional por su hélice. A cambio, tiene mayor complicación mecánica en el diseño del eje principal y precisa de una adecuada separación entre ambas hélices para evitar que puedan colisionar entre sí.

Para aumentar la velocidad horizontal, el proyecto del SB-1 Defiant cuenta además con una hélice propulsora en la cola a la que se deriva la mayor parte de la potencia del motor durante el vuelo horizontal. Esta configuración permitió al demostrador de tecnología X2, en el que se basa, batir (de modo no oficial) el récord mundial de velocidad horizontal para helicópteros al alcanzar los 460 km/h. Boeing y Sikorsky ya trabajaron juntas en el RAH-66 Comanche, un helicóptero ligero de reconocimiento y ataque con características ‘furtivas’ que fue cancelado en 2004 tras invertirse más de 7.000 millones de dólares en su desarrollo. Pero el diseño de helicóptero con hélice propulsora es más antiguo: ya se propuso en los años sesenta por Lockheed con el helicóptero de ataque AH-56 Cheyenne, cancelado por diversos problemas en 1972.

También en el X2 se basa el helicóptero ligero de ataque S-97 Raider, que ya cuenta con dos prototipos aunque es mucho más pequeño y ligero que su pariente destinado al transporte y al ataque pesado. La propuesta del SB-1 Defiant es un aparato de 13,6 toneladas de peso capaz de transportar dos pilotos y 12 soldados completamente equipados en condiciones ‘high and hot’ hasta a 460 km/h. Para cumplir con las especificaciones del programa FVL, deberá tener un alcance de misión de más de 425 km, y sus diseñadores subrayan las ventajas del doble rotor coaxial en cuanto a maniobrabilidad y seguridad. El aparato podría perder por completo la hélice impulsora y no por ello ser menos ágil, aunque su velocidad se vería reducida a la de un helicóptero convencional (277 a 296 km/h).



La hélice propulsora le confiere la capacidad de mantenerse en vuelo estático con la nariz 20 grados por encima o por debajo de la horizontal, postura que los helicópteros convencionales no pueden mantener y que tiene notables ventajas tácticas. Además, se espera que el SB-1 sea capaz de velocidades de ascenso y descenso muy por encima de las de los helicópteros actuales, aunque las capacidades detalladas finales dependerán mucho de la elección de los motores; está previsto que los primeros prototipos utilicen versiones del motor del helicóptero de transporte CH-34 Chinook para más adelante incorporar plantas propulsoras más eficientes y potentes.

En todo caso, la batalla entre el Defiant y el Valor será dura, puesto que las consecuencias de la derrota son graves: el elegido en esta fase marcará la planta común de desarrollo para todo el programa FVL, lo que supone muchos miles de aparatos de múltiples tamaños a lo largo de décadas, todos compartiendo configuración y elementos de pilotaje y mantenimiento. En suma, decenas de miles de millones de dólares en juego, el futuro de las compañías participantes en el alero. Se espera que ambos prototipos estén en condiciones de empezar las pruebas de vuelo a finales de 2017, momento en el que comenzará la pelea final. Lo único seguro es que el futuro helicóptero de transporte de las fuerzas armadas estadounidenses y, por implicación e historia, de muchos otros países, no será un diseño convencional.

          Boeing crea un Dron submarino nuclear gigante "que cambiará las misiones militares"   


Boeing y el mayor constructor naviero de EEUU crean un Dron submarino gigante nuclear
El sumergible de 15 metros, que funciona de forma autónoma, cambiará la manera de llevar a cabo investigaciones en aguas profundas y misiones militares de reconocimiento bajo el agua.

En los últimos meses, Boeing ha estado promocionando su Echo Voyager, un vehículo autónomo submarino de 50 toneladas que está siendo probado en el Océano Pacífico frente a la costa de California.

En diciembre, el subsecretario de Defensa norteamericano Bob Work visitó la fábrica de Huntington Beach donde se está construyendo el dron submarino. “Es impresionante en todos los sentidos… La larga permanencia bajo el mar, sin intervención humana durante meses gracias a su sistema de energía híbrida recargable, la profundidad de buceo, son cosas realmente emocionantes” dijo Work. “No puedo esperar a que lo metan en el agua y lo prueben”.

Boeing ha formado asociación con Huntington Ingalls para trabajar en su dron Echo Voyager de 51 pies diseñado para permanecer bajo el agua por largos periodos de tiempo. Esta unión llega en un momento en el que la Marina de los Estados Unidos comienza a trabajar en lo que llama grandes vehículos submarinos teledirigidos, drones submarinos no tripulados destinados a cambiar la forma de lucha bajo la superficie del mar.

Boeing y Huntington Ingalls trabajarán juntos en proyectos de vehículos submarinos en las instalaciones de diseño y producción en Huntington Beach; Newport News, Virginia; y en la Ciudad de Panamá, Florida.



“Esta asociación proporciona a la Armada una gran oportunidad para satisfacer las necesidades emergentes y de bajo riesgo que impulsaron el programa de Prototipos Submarinos Avanzados de la Armada”, dijo Darryl Davis, presidente de Boeing Phantom Works, en un comunicado. “Estamos combinando el equipo de ingeniería marítima preeminente de Boeing con nuestro principal constructor naval y la compañía de servicios técnicos de la Marina para conseguir vehículos operativos en los próximos años antes del proceso estándar de adquisición”.

La Marina, en su presentación del presupuesto de 2018 al Congreso el mes pasado, dijo que planea llevar a cabo ensayos con vehículos submarinos existentes y continuar desarrollando nuevos tipos de tecnología antes de incorporarlos formalmente a la flota.

“Esto ayudará a desarrollar la experiencia con estas nuevas máquinas, las comunicaciones, la navegación, la resistencia, la recuperación, la factibilidad de la carga útil y la planificación y ejecución de misiones para los vehículos submarinos no tripulados extra”, dicen los documentos del presupuesto de servicio.

El nuevo miembro de la familia de submarinos no tripulados de Boeing está capacitado para recoger datos de manera independiente, salir a la superficie y transmitir aquellos en tiempo real. El sistema híbrido eléctrico y de combustible permite que se recargue y permanezca bajo el agua durante al menos seis meses.

“Esperamos una larga relación con Boeing mientras nos preparamos para lanzar este multiplicador de fuerza no tripulada para la Armada”, dijo Andy Green, vicepresidente ejecutivo de Huntington Ingalls Industries y presidente de la división de Soluciones Técnicas de la compañía en un comunicado. “Estoy seguro de que este equipo continuará redefiniendo el modelo de autonomía para los UUVs”.

          United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launch   

United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launchUnited Launch Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing Co , for the first time beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in competition for an Air Force satellite launch, both launch companies said on Friday. The contract value is just over $191 million, the Air Force said. The award is the first for United Launch Alliance since the Air Force certified rival SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets for flight and opened bidding for launch contracts in 2015.



          Comment on Dress rehearsal completed for SpaceX’s Sunday launch by mkent   
"SpaceX is also proficient in flight management and logistics; while Boeing has a lot of experience in space, I don’t know how that compares to SpaceX." Boeing is prime contractor for the American side of the ISS, which includes much of the day-to-day analyses and operations. The people you see on-console on NASA TV are NASA employees, but many of the people in the back offices those people talk to are Boeing employees. In fact, from what I have heard, Boeing provided substantial help to SpaceX between COTS 1 and COTS 2/3 to help get them qualified to berth with the ISS. While SpaceX's native capability has grown much since then, I doubt they have much, if any, advantage over Boeing here. Over Lockheed (prime contractor of Orion), sure, but not Boeing.
          Comment on First test launches of commercial manned vehicles upcoming by Anthony Domanico   
I was going to make the same point but you beat me to it, Edward. The Space Shuttle wouldn't meet the LOC criteria that they are suggesting be imposed on the new capsules. One thing I just don't understand is the notion that if NASA and the federal government aren't looking over the shoulders of SpaceX, Boeing, Sierra Nevada, etc, they will cut corners and it will result in loss of life. I don't work in the industry so I may be way off on this issue but I have faith in these companies. It's in their best interest to make sure their vehicles are safe. They can't make them as safe as possible because at some point the cost goes prohibitively high, so it's a compromise. Like Dr. Zubrin says, if you are looking for the safest option, don't go to space. Edward, how were you involved in the aerospace industry? I just read your reply regarding our conversation about Skylon competing with SpaceX and it sounded like you are possibly an engineer.
          Comment on Dress rehearsal completed for SpaceX’s Sunday launch by diane wilson   
Sayomara, SpaceX tends not to say much, but pieces of the Dragon 2 (the human-rated Dragon) are known. They needed to start flying "flight proven" Dragons (done, with CRS-11), so they could convert production over to Dragon 2. There will need to be at least two uncrewed flights, one for in-flight abort test, and one orbital mission. Just a guess, but that mission would probably be a cargo run to ISS. After that, they might be able to get certified for a crewed mission. Timelines are open to guessing, but I understand that the expectation is for the first crewed mission to ISS could be in the first half of 2018. That could mean a first flight late this year. Also, I understand that they are a few months ahead of Boeing. That probably is measured only in terms of capsule development. SpaceX is also proficient in flight management and logistics; while Boeing has a lot of experience in space, I don't know how that compares to SpaceX. ULA would probably handle the launch, but once in orbit, I don't know if they have much experience that is directly comparable to the rest of the mission profile. They did launch a couple of ISS supply missions for Orbital ATK. On the other hand, no one except SpaceX (in the US) has soft-landed a capsule since the last Apollo flights.

           Boeing, Norwegian celebrate delivery of airline's first 737 MAX 8s   
Boeing and Norwegian celebrated the delivery yesterday of the airline's first two 737 MAX 8s. Norwegian is the first European carrier to take delivery of the 737 MAX and will deploy the airplanes on transatlantic flights between northern Europe and the east coast of the United States."We have been eagerly awaiting the delivery of our Boeing 737 MAX, and we are overjoyed to have it join our fleet today," said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian's Chief Executive Officer. "We are the first European airline to operate this brand-new aircraft, and we're also the first airline in the world to operate it to and from the United States. This aircraft allows us to open up new, unserved routes and offer both Americans and Europeans even more affordable transatlantic fares. It will also provide our passengers with a quieter onboard experience, whilst it significantly reduces both fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions."Norwegian is the sixth largest low-cost carrier in the world and flies over 500 routes to more than 150 destinations in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Thailand, the Caribbean and the US. It currently operates a fleet of more than 100 Next-Generation 737-800s and over a dozen 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners. The Oslo-headquartered carrier also has unfilled orders for 108 737 MAX 8s and 19 787-9s."The 737 MAX 8 is a significant addition to Norwegian's fleet, enabling the airline to start the next chapter in its incredible growth story of low-cost, long-haul travel," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO, Kevin McAllister. "It is a tremendous honor that a brand as innovative as Norwegian will be the first European carrier to fly the 737 MAX, and we are certain that this airplane will play a key role in its continued success."The 737 MAX family has been designed to offer customers exceptional performance, flexibility and efficiency, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range that will open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

           Airbus executive to bow out after poor sales at Paris Air Show   
In a raw show of humility, Airbus SE sales chief John Leahy has conceded defeat to Boeing Co at his last European air show, and confirmed that he will retire from the company after securing US$1.7 trillion of aircraft orders over two decades.The time-frame for Mr Leahy's exit hasn't been revealed yet. However, Mr Leahy said he will work on a smooth transition to deputy Kiran Rao at Airbus's closing press conference at the Paris Air Show.Airbus had no new commercial aircraft to unveil at the expo, unlike Boeing, which secured 300 sales and commitments for the Max 10 stretch of its 737 single-aisle aircraft, reported Bloomberg."The fact is, this is a slower year for orders than previous years," Mr Leahy was quoted as saying at the briefing. "Are we conceding that Boeing sold a few more airplanes than we did? Yes. Every dog gets his day."Airbus secured $39.7 billion of new jetliner business at the show, Mr Leahy said, comprising firm orders for 144 aircraft worth $18.5 billion at list prices and looser commitments for 182 planes valued at $21.2 billion. In terms of firm deals "those that can be included in the manufacturers' backlogs" the company came out roughly neck-and-neck with Boeing, Mr Leahy added.Executive vice president of strategy and marketing at the commercial-plane unit, Mr Rao, has already led talks with AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes that resulted in an order for 14 A320ceo aircraft valued at $1.4 billion.Mr Rao has a tough act to follow, with Mr Leahy having racked 15,500 orders since becoming commercial chief more than two decades ago, catapulting Airbus from an 18 per cent share of the jetliner market to a 50-50 balance with Boeing.Airbus isn't overly concerned about the US company's plans to develop a new middle-of-market model to replace its defunct B757 and soon-to-go B767, Mr Leahy said, reiterating his assessment that the European company has an 80 per cent share of the market."We don't see it as a major threat," said the executive, predicting the plane, dubbed the B797 by some, will cost $12 billion to develop.Mr Rao said that Boeing is "flying all these kites" to suggest it will have a game-changing aircraft for 2025 in part to disrupt A321neo sales, when in reality it won't be able to make the aircraft as cheaply as suggested because 70 per cent of its cost lies with suppliers and are outside of the airframer's direct control.Mr Leahy said that Dubai-based Emirates is "very interested" in an enhanced version of Airbus's superjumbo, dubbed the A380plus.Emirates is in early talks about the purchase of 20 A380s to add to the 140 it ordered previously, people familiar with the discussions said earlier this month. With the next main air show to be held in Dubai in November, that raises the prospect of Mr Leahy going out with a flourish in the form of a $9 billion order.However, landing a deal will also be tough after Emirates' president Tim Clark said he's concerned about Airbus' commitment to sticking with the slow-selling A380 programme.

           Boeing raises 20-year industry demand forecast for aircraft   
US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has revised upwards by four per cent its rolling 20-year industry forecast for freight and passenger aircraft.Boeing forecasts 41,030 industry deliveries over the next two decades, up from 39,620 in a similar projection a year ago, and topping US$6 trillion in value, reported ReutersThat includes a five per cent increase in the 20-year forecast for deliveries of single-aisle aircraft like the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 families.Boeing now expects 29,530 deliveries in the medium-haul single-aisle category, which is popular with low-cost airlines.Boeing predicted demand for 920 cargo planes, down one per cent from its previous forecast. Much air cargo nowadays goes in the belly of wide-body passenger planes rather than freighters.Planemakers also see growing opportunities in aviation services. Boeing forecast that market could be worth $8.5 trillion over 20 years, growing at an average four per cent a year.Airbus took a similar step in its own 20-year forecast released earlier this month, while increasing the projection for total deliveries by six per cent, compared with last year's edition, to 34,899 aircraft.In a symbolic change likely to rankle with its European rival, Boeing ditched its forecast for very large four-engined airplanes such as the Airbus A380 and its own B747-8. For the first time, it lumped these together with large two-engined jets such as the Boeing 777 and largest A350.Boeing has long argued that the "very large" category is on its way out as airlines switch to smaller twinjets. Both manufacturers have had to cut output of four-engined jumbos. Boeing expects to deliver only "a handful" of 747-8 passenger jets."In fact, frankly, we look at the demand for really big airplanes and we find it hard to believe that Airbus will be able to deliver the rest of their A380s in backlog,"Boeing Commercial Airplanes' marketing vice-president Randy Tinseth said in a briefing.Airbus insists the double-decker A380 has a future due to airport congestion and predicts five per cent of aircraft delivered over the next 20 years will be very large people carriers or freighters, even though its forecast has been revised lower.

The Boeing 747-400 Supertanker can carry around 19,200 gallons of water, nearly twice the capacity of the DC-10 aircraft currently fighting the Goodwin fire scorching the Prescott National Forest in central Arizona, about 100 miles north of Phoenix. "The aircraft works just like a big Super Soaker … the retardant is expelled by air pressure — it's not gravity," said Bob Soelberg, the senior vice president of Global SuperTanker Services, which owns the 747 Supertanker. The aircraft is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration and an older model was certified by the U.S. Forest Service. The new model, which uses the same tank system as the old plane, has had to undergo another Forest Service certification. Until that happens, the state of Arizona would not receive federal reimbursement for contracting the plane, and the plane cannot be flown in airspace with other Forest Service aircraft in the area...more
          Panzir56: Сергей Губанов: «Альтернативы суверенизации собственности нет, кроме краха России»   
Главред журнала «Экономист» о том, при каких условиях в стране возможна неоиндустриализация и почему народ уже нельзя успокоить деньгами
«Ничего более поучительного, чем советский опыт, в мировой истории не существует», — считает известный экономист, профессор Сергей Губанов, который убежден, что экспортно-сырьевой модели роста экономики России больше не будет, а тот рост, который был в последние годы, по большей части чисто инфляционный, дутый. В развернутом интервью «БИЗНЕС Online» он рассуждает о том, в чем ошибаются не только либералы, но и экономисты Хазин и Глазьев, а также почему модель бизнеса КАМАЗа «дофордовская»

1461042262_RIAN_02511017 (460x345, 30Kb) «КОГДА-ТО КОНКИСТАДОРЫ ВЫМЕНИВАЛИ У ТУЗЕМЦЕВ ЗОЛОТО ЗА СТЕКЛЯШКИ, ТЕПЕРЬ ЖЕ ВАШИНГТОН ОБХОДИТСЯ БЕЗ НИХ»

— Сергей Семенович, ваш журнал «Экономист» еще в начале 2012 года предсказывал, что России грозит рецессия, хотя тогда и цены на нефть были высокими, да и вообще казалось, что все будет хорошо. По вашему мнению, почему же все-таки рецессия началась? Были внешние причины или это только внутрироссийские проблемы?

— Высокая вероятность автономной рецессии в нашей стране (без рецессии в «большой семерке») отмечена в статье, опубликованной в январе 2012 года под названием «Вероятна ли мировая рецессия-2012?». И то было не первое предостережение. Ему предшествовал двухчастный вывод, сделанный мной еще в 2008 - 2009 годах в антикризисном цикле передач Марата Мусина на радиостанции «Говорит Москва». Первая часть состояла в том, что Россия не вернется к высоким темпам экспортно-сырьевого роста. Вторая часть сформулирована более жестко — сырьевого роста у России не будет больше никогда. Обе оценки появились задолго до январской статьи 2012 года. Естественно, для них были свои основания.

— И почему же сырьевого роста не будет никогда? Почему сломалась та модель, которая до этого успешно действовала, на основе которой мы жили?

— Позвольте уточнение: успешно экспортно-сырьевая модель не действовала. Единственное, что она могла дать и давала, — это фиктивный рост ВВП, инфляционный, дутый (в 2003 году я назвал его ростом без развития). Такого рода рост вызван инфляцией нефтедоллара. Бешеного импорта инфляции не видят разве что «спецы» из числа ретролибералов вроде Алексея Кудрина и Евсея Гурвича. Они взялись анализировать факторы роста до кризиса 2008 года, хотя здесь нечего анализировать, ибо единственный и главный фактор указан наукой давно — инфляция нефтедоллара.

Подчеркиваю, речь идет именно о нефтедолларе. Нельзя рассуждать об абстрактном американском долларе, которым оперирует Михаил Хазин, ожидая его краха со дня на день. США устроили систему двух долларов: один — внутренний, для внутреннего хождения, он на 99 процентов электронный, безналичный; второй — внешний, в виде резервной валюты для остального мира. В чем здесь особенность? За покупательную способность внешнего доллара ответственности США не несут и товарных обязательств на себя не принимают. В обмен на «резервный доллар» США готовы предоставлять какие угодно биржевые бумаги (акции и облигации), но только не реальные товары, не технологии, не рабочие места. Товарной массой обеспечивается лишь внутренний доллар.

С помощью внешнего доллара как мировой резервной валюты США утилитарно выкачивают ресурсы из остального мира, обменивая реальное на виртуальное и товарное на бестоварное. Когда-то конкистадоры выменивали у туземцев золото за стекляшки, теперь же Вашингтон обходится без стекляшек — достаточно бумажек. Таким образом нефтедоллар обслуживает неэквивалентный товарообмен, выступая рычагом утверждения мирового господства США, или глобализации по-американски. Система двух долларов чрезвычайно проста, когда она распознана. К сожалению, многие люди, которые воображают крах доллара, зачастую остаются слепцами. Они не видят фундаментальных закономерностей современного экономического мира, не видят того прискорбного факта, что постсоветская Россия сделалась сырьевой колонией империализма доллара. Поэтому наша страна вывозит сейчас товары, а взамен ввозит инфляцию.

— И это значит...

— Это значит, что инфляция нефтедоллара была основным фактором сырьевого роста. Чем больше нефтедолларов выпускается ФРС США и вбрасывается в мировое обращение, тем выше цены на нефть, газ, черные и цветные металлы, зерно, древесину и прочее сырье. В нефтедолларовом выражении объем ВВП России тогда распухает, хотя в физическом почти неизменен. Кривое монетаристское зеркало искажает реальность: кажется, будто национальное богатство прибывает, тогда как на самом деле оно убывает. Действительно, страна остается и без вывезенных ресурсов, и без продуктов их индустриальной переработки, и без производства новых рабочих мест. Национальный промышленный комплекс хиреет, теряя загрузку, занятость и мощности. Внутренний мультипликатор добавленной стоимости падает. Расширяются только деиндустриализация, компрадорская рента, социальное неравенство и социальная деградация — в науке, инфраструктуре, образовании, здравоохранении, культуре, спорте, ЖКХ и т. д.

Достаточно элементарной математической формализации, чтобы понять, что экспортно-сырьевая модель означает не больше, чем игру с нулевой суммой. Почему? Когда на внешнем рынке дорожает сырье, то дорожают и промышленные товары. Кто дороже продает, тот дороже и покупает. Вслед за удорожанием экспорта наступает удорожание импорта. Статистический анализ ясно показывает это, особенно на среднесрочном интервале (5 - 7 лет). По интегралу выходит полностью нулевой баланс: сколько выиграно на экспорте, столько проиграно на импорте. Так и должно быть, ведь инфляция затрагивает обе части уравнения: как экспорт, так и импорт. Мораль проста: экспортно-сырьевая модель не обогащает, а истощает Россию.

Люди с однофакторным мышлением видят одну часть уравнения, упуская вторую. Так, предсказуемой близорукостью страдают ретролибералы. Постановка вопроса о факторах экспортно-сырьевого роста в исполнении фигур типа Алексея Кудрина, Владимира Мау, Алексея Улюкаева, Евсея Гурвича является сугубо идеологической. С точки зрения науки, ретролибералы лишь профанируют истину, ибо интересы России ниже для них, чем интересы олигархически-компрадорского и зарубежного капитала.

Приведу наглядную иллюстрацию дутого, инфляционного характера экспортно-сырьевого роста. В долларовом выражении ВВП России с 2000 по 2008 год увеличился примерно в 7 раз. Представляете: за 9 лет ВВП возрос семикратно — причем в долларах, вроде как реально. Однако по покупательной способности в расчете на душу населения, когда пересчитываем динамику в сопоставимых ценах, получаем прирост всего на 27 процентов — за те же 9 лет.

«НАИВНО РАССЧИТЫВАТЬ НА РАЗВИТИЕ ПРИ ОПОРЕ НА «ЭКОНОМИКУ ТРУБЫ»

— Почему возникла такая диспропорция?

— Потому что вместо развития компрадорская Россия довольствуется нефтедолларовым пузырем: инфляция нефтедоллара надувает его, а дефляция — сдувает. Насос находится не в России, а за океаном. Поэтому экспортно-сырьевая модель заведомо колониальная и вассальная. Она держит Россию на привязи империализма доллара, который и погоняет компрадорским режимом.

То же самое подтверждают и фундаментальные индикаторы, например, количественный и качественный уровень производительных сил. Кстати, нами найдено решение интересной задачи об измерении и сопоставлении производительных сил любых стран — в машинных работниках. Соответствующий показатель можно исчислять достаточно оперативно, ежеквартально и даже ежемесячно.

— Какова оценка по этому показателю?

— Как выясняется, суммарные производительные силы нашей страны до сих пор меньше величины 1990 года, утраченный уровень не восстановлен. Причем в советское время основная масса машинных работников создавалась внутри страны, нашим машиностроительным комплексом, а теперь внушительная их часть импортируется.

Еще один фундаментальный показатель — электроэнергия. Разве увеличился в 7 раз объем генерируемой электроэнергии? Несмотря на попытки уйти от детерминированной зависимости между потребляемой энергией и ВВП (decoupling), сделать этого не удается ни одной стране мира. Когда вводятся «зеленые» источники, то происходит не сокращение энергопотребления, а замещение мощностей в структуре энергобаланса: промышленно развитые страны, продвигаясь по пути новой, цифровой и технотронной индустриализации, уходят от сжигания углеводородов к постнефтяной энергетике. Успехи неоиндустриализации в области электроэнергетики особенно характерны для ведущих европейских стран. Отнюдь не случайно именно на европейском направлении появились жесткие ограничения для экспортно-сырьевой модели и нефтедоллара. Все замыкается здесь.

Что же у нас с объемом производства электроэнергии? Он тоже не восстановлен. Не хватило 25 лет, чтобы выйти на дореформенный, советский уровень. О каком росте реального богатства можно говорить? По сути, о нулевом. Да и наивно было бы рассчитывать на развитие при опоре на сырьевой экспорт, на «экономику трубы».

Наконец, еще факт: если взвесить компоненты 27 процентов прироста покупательной способности, то наибольшая доля получается за счет того, что населения стало меньше, словом — за счет вымирания наших соотечественников.

— Вы хотите сказать, что такие программы демографического стимулирования, как, например, материнский капитал, не работают?

— Статистика продемонстрировала первоначальный эффект по линии рождаемости. Но это мало помогло. В лучшем случае, если смотреть демографические данные, имеем нулевой рост. Скорость вымирания в стране все равно выше естественной. Рождаемость не перекрывает противоестественную смертность.

— Так власти как раз недавно докладывали, что смертность у нас снизилась.

— Она снизилась точно так же, как повысился уровень жизни — главным образом в правительственных реляциях, на бумаге. Чиновникам в радость даже нулевой демографический прирост. Для компрадорского строя недостижимо маячат советские 1 - 1,2 процента роста в год. Советское здравоохранение, как бы его ни критиковали, справлялось со своей задачей, оно позволяло Советскому Союзу быть растущей страной, а не вымирающей. Конечно, социальное здравоохранение действовало в одной упряжке со всей планово-централизованной системой, включая доступность и качество лекарственных препаратов и предметов потребления, сеть общественного питания, школьные и дошкольные учреждения, массовую физкультуру, жесткие продовольственные стандарты — население не травили суррогатами, фальсификатами, синтетическими добавками.

Как видим, анализ по всем ключевым позициям выявляет фиктивность того роста, какой фиксировался до кризиса 2008 - 2009 годов. Бурно нарастал главным образом импорт нефтедолларовой инфляции. По ряду причин для США в то время было выгодно держать «разводненный» нефтедоллар, потому что речь шла о захвате командных высот в странах прежде всего бывшего СССР: Россия, Украина, Казахстан, Средняя Азия. В Прибалтике американский капитал давно уже ходит в безраздельных хозяевах.

— Как же Беларусь?

— Беларусь пока упирается, но стратегически расстановку сил проигрывает, ибо там тоже отсталая, дезинтегрированная и затратная экономическая система, чего, увы, не осознает команда Александра Лукашенко. Плюс лишь в том, что до власти еще не дорвались компрадоры. Даже в Китае американский капитал уже захватил очень приличные позиции. Все это благодаря разводненному, инфляционному нефтедоллару.

Еще важный момент — инфляция или дефляция нефтедоллара полностью зависят от интересов США и абсолютно не зависят от интересов России. Россия никак не может влиять на количество нефтедолларов, которые Штаты решают вбросить в мировой оборот.

«В РАМКАХ КОЛИЧЕСТВЕННОГО СМЯГЧЕНИЯ ФРС США НЕ НАПЕЧАТАЛА НИ ОДНОГО ДОЛЛАРА»

— А что тогда делать России, чтобы не зависеть? Отказаться от нефтедолларов? Не продавать сырье?

— Сначала нужно дополнить аналитическую картинку: какие основания были в 2008 - 2009 годах для категорического вывода, что сырьевого роста у России больше не будет. Назову несколько существенных причин. Первая причина — успехи неоиндустриального, высокотехнологического развития в промышленно развитых странах. Ретролибералы кормят Россию басенками и убогими домыслами о «постиндустриальном обществе», а промышленно развитые страны после кризиса 2001 - 2003 годов совершили дружный разворот к новой индустриализации в инфраструктурных секторах, прежде всего в электроэнергетике. Наиболее выраженным неоиндустриальный поворот был в европейских странах, прежде всего в германоцентричном ядре Евросоюза.

Между прочим, пока еще мало специалистов видят оформление германоцентричного ядра ЕС. Это очень интересное явление, которое удалось зафиксировать благодаря анализу того, каким образом выходили из кризиса 2008 года европейские страны. Исследование привело к неожиданному результату, поскольку выявилась группа стран с идентичными, как под копирку, траекториями антикризисного движения.

— Назовите эти страны. Германия, Австрия...

— Еще Франция, Швейцария, Италия, Бельгия, Дания, Скандинавия, Венгрия, Эстония, а также Польша, Чехия и Словакия. Перед нами феномен, который недооценивается, хотя он ощутимо влияет на наш внешнеторговый оборот. Когда приходится иметь дело с перечисленными странами, то формально двусторонние отношения оказываются в основе трехсторонними, потому что за каждой из них стоит еще Германия. Наблюдается занятная посткризисная новация, и она тоже ответственна за то, что на европейском направлении экспортно-сырьевой вектор компрадорской России стал усыхать.

Но главный фактор — это новая индустриализация в инфраструктурных секторах ЕС. Методичное замещение углеводородной энергетики постнефтяной, рециклинг ресурсов, энергоэффективные технологии влекут кардинальное изменение электробаланса. Исходя из его темпов в 2008 году мы спрогнозировали, что через 5 - 7 лет доля «зеленых» источников в электробалансе ЕС дойдет до 35 процентов. Достигнутый сейчас показатель немногим ниже — 34 процента. Но его вполне достаточно, чтобы гибко маневрировать спросом на нефтегазовое сырье и сбивать цены. В пересчете на нефтяной эквивалент «зеленые технологии» ежегодно экономят ЕС около 170 миллионов тонн нефти, и эта цифра будет только нарастать.

— А как же тогда наш газопровод в Китай?

— Китай — это восточное направление, но там будет не легче, чем на европейском. В любом случае экспортно-сырьевой рост у нас кончился, даже если цены на нефть сегодня подбросит вверх, что пока контрастирует со стратегическими интересами США. Могущественные имперские кланы (а в их составе Джордж Буш, Дик Чейни, Дональд Рамсфелд, Кондолиза Райс), которые за нефтедоллары скупили громадные куски собственности в остальном мире, не хотят, чтобы принадлежащие им куски обесценились. Отсюда нажим, чтобы нефтедоллар оставался сильным. Пока интерес американских собственников не пройдет, они будут оказывать существенное давление в сторону дорогого нефтедоллара и, следовательно, дешевой нефти. Но тут есть еще один интересный аспект.

Как я уже сказал, главный фактор — новая индустриализация в промышленно развитых странах, следствие — постнефтяная энергетика, расширение ее доли. Третий фактор — «новая норма» ФРС США, тоже крайне увлекательное явление. Полагаю, нам удалось разобраться в нем. Как выяснилось, это не просто количественное смягчение, когда ФРС якобы печатала доллары и забрасывала ими американские банки. Такое представление превратно. Я удивлю, наверное, многих, если скажу, что в рамках количественного смягчения ФРС вообще не напечатала ни одного доллара. Поток долларов лился по другим каналам, совсем в другую сторону, с особой целью.

— Это как?

— Проведена масштабная операция по спасению империализма доллара. Под видом количественного смягчения ФРС приняла на свой баланс неликвидные активы крупнейших американских банков, она стала просто мусорным баком банковской системы США. Ничего не печатала ФРС, обошлась записями на электронных счетах по статьям «резервных депозитов». Затем весь долговой хлам в объеме свыше 4,5 триллионов долларов через американскую банковскую систему и «дешевый нефтедоллар» Вашингтон умудрился разверстать на остальной мир, включая Россию. Долларовая разверстка послужила ключевым ходом комбинации, спроектированной ради глобального насаждения толлинговой схемы (когда оборотные средства и выручка принадлежат американским ТНК, а внутри опустошаемой страны остается только зарплата).

Дальнейшее было уже делом техники. «Новая норма» ФРС заставила страны, зависимые от доллара, расплачиваться за долги США своими ресурсами: нефтью, газом, древесиной, металлами, зерном, а главное — собственностью. Остальной мир даже не заметил, как попал в сети глобального долларового толлинга — в чем и состояла истинная цель «новой нормы». Теперь зоны долларизации во многом безвозмездно обогащают США: вывозят туда товарную массу, а обратно ввозят долговые обязательства. В итоге импортируют инфляцию вместо товаров. В толлинге заключена банальная империалистическая схема, которую ретролиберальные умники совершенно не видят, да и не хотят видеть.

«ПРОГРАММА ГЛАЗЬЕВА В КОМПРАДОРСКОЙ СИСТЕМЕ НЕРЕАЛИЗУЕМА, А В СУВЕРЕННОЙ ОТПАДАЕТ»

— Так наша двузначная инфляция оттуда?

— От толлинга и импорта долларовой инфляции. К большому сожалению, близоруко разглядывает картину даже наш хороший экономист Сергей Глазьев. Он считает демонетизацию ВВП происками Центрального банка, но не замечает, как компрадорская собственность и дерегулирование внешней торговли открыли двери для импорта нефтедолларовой инфляции. Поэтому главное — блокировать импорт инфляции.

— И как же мы можем его заблокировать?

— Можем, но сначала надо понять, почему экспортно-сырьевая модель есть модель импорта нефтедолларовой инфляции. Если исходить из точного анализа и общегосударственных интересов, то возможно проектировать действенные контрмеры. Без этого вопрос о том, что и как делать, просто-напросто беспредметен. Тогда реальные решения подменяются словоблудием, пустой говорильней. Нет ничего проще, чем призывать к смене денежно-кредитной политики. Но подобные призывы при всей их популярности исходят из неполноценного анализа ситуации. Полноценным может быть только системный анализ, который доходит до собственности на командные высоты экономики. Когда ЦБ вырывают из компрадорской системы, которая господствует, то направляют по заведомо ложным ориентирам. Получается, что система собственности в целом хороша, а плохо привинчен только отдельно взятый винтик. Нас призывают заниматься частностями и отдельными персонами, вместо того чтобы устранять грозный системный кризис.

— И все-таки как вы оцениваете политику ЦБ по таргетированию инфляции, демонетизации экономики, в чем обвиняет их Глазьев?

— Увы, Сергей Глазьев почему-то не обвиняет в импорте инфляции, который наносит гораздо больший ущерб. Опять же, демонетизация и экономический рост — где здесь причина, а где следствие? Быть может, деиндустриализация и малый объем реального ВВП есть причина демонетизации? Если потеряна масса промышленного капитала, откуда будет монетизация? Добавьте потерю амортизации, долларовый толлинг, офшоризацию экспортной выручки, сужение воспроизводства и товарной массы отечественного производства: откуда же взяться внутренней монетизации? Перед нами системные вопросы. Но они не ставятся. Вот и выходит, что вроде как хлестко критикуют ЦБ, да только критикуют беспредметно. Понятна забота об оборотных средствах предприятий, однако их нехватка — это тоже системное следствие, а не причина. В общем, программа Глазьева в компрадорской системе нереализуема, а в суверенной экономической системе отпадает.

«ПОСТСОВЕТСКАЯ ЭКОНОМИЧЕСКАЯ СИСТЕМА ИЗНАЧАЛЬНО БЫЛА БЕСПЕРСПЕКТИВНОЙ»

— Тогда с чего надо начать?

— С понимания системного краха экспортно-сырьевой модели как модели господства компрадорской собственности. Постсоветская экономическая система изначально была бесперспективной. Система, навязанная ретролибералами по указке Вашингтона, оказалась на порядок архаичнее советской. Под флагом рыночных реформ нашу страну привели на путь зависимости и отсталости.

А надо было принципиально иное, надо было выходить на столбовую дорогу прогресса, указываемую законом вертикальной интеграции. Из советской системы, искореженной чередой предыдущих реформ, следовало убрать слабые звенья и дополнить передовые, чтобы сделать ее системой экономических стимулов к повышению качества продукции, снижению издержек, наращиванию товарного выпуска при росте производительности труда. Нам нужна была плановая система межотраслевого взаимодействия.

Реформаторы же, начиная с хрущевских, выхолостили советскую систему, сделали ее затратной и неэффективной. Снижение себестоимости подменили повышением цен, уничтожили всякую заинтересованность в производительности и качестве продукции, переориентировали капитальные вложения на инфляцию вместо НТП, исключили связь зарплаты с конечными результатами, превратили хозрасчет в прикрытие для накопления теневого капитала.

Будучи еще молодыми советскими экономистами, мы критиковали хозрасчетную систему за реакционность и неэффективность куда жестче, чем всякие ретролибералы. Для последних важно было любыми средствами низвергнуть советскую систему, под любым предлогом. Они брали научную критику системы как аргумент для политической контрреволюции. Напротив, мы стремились не разрушать, а созидать, имея в виду сделать советскую систему качественно обновленной, прогрессивной и эффективной, приведенной в соответствие с законом вертикальной интеграции и пригодной для больших исторических свершений.

— Но либералы, о которых вы говорите, пошли и свергли советскую власть.

— Советская власть пала, когда де-факто выродилась в антисоветскую. Нет ничего удивительного, что компрадорская идеология ретролибералов смыкается с асоциальной вообще и антисоветской в особенности. Вместо того чтобы пойти по пути межотраслевой интеграции, они направились по пути дезинтеграции и деиндустриализации.

«ПЕРЕДАТЬ В РУКИ НЫНЕШНЕГО ГОСУДАРСТВА КОМАНДНЫЕ ВЫСОТЫ ЭКОНОМИКИ — ВСЕ РАВНО ЧТО ПЕРЕДАТЬ ИНОСТРАННОМУ КАПИТАЛУ»

— Но почему именно они оказались на коне, а такие, как вы, остались не у дел?

— Это вопрос социальной расстановки сил и способа влияния на умонастроения масс. Политика предполагает вовлечение миллионов людей. А нашими трибунами были научные журналы не с миллионными тиражами. Тем временем носители продажной идеологии без зазрения совести работали за и на иностранные деньги. Поскольку рыночная экономика тождественна продажной и товаром сделалось все, включая ум, честь, совесть, к услугам тех, кто стал рупором продажной идеологии, оказался гигантский капитал. Именно поддержка иностранного и теневого капитала превратила ретролибералов во властителей дум миллионов. Ученые же, не предавшие общегосударственных интересов, но преданные антисоветской властью, оказались без средств влияния на общественное сознание, а порой вообще без средств существования.

С тех пор ситуация не очень изменилась. Но отечественная наука свою социальную функцию выполняет. С середины 1990 годов мы выковывали неоиндустриальный вектор развития России — в противовес «постиндустриальной» ахинее, нелепице рыночного саморегулирования и массе других идеологических мифологем. В борьбе с мракобесными догмами компрадорской идеологии выработана строго научная теория современного развития. Пройдя через горнило горячих дискуссий в академических и университетских центрах страны, она приняла форму неоиндустриальной парадигмы. Это не просто моя разработка, к ней причастно множество моих коллег. По большому счету в неоиндустриальной парадигме воплощен концентрат всего лучшего и передового, что есть в отечественной экономической мысли.

В 2000 - 2006 годах шла еще научная полемика, а в 2016 году, по недавним опросам, свыше 26 процентов населения поддерживают необходимость новой индустриализации. 10 лет назад концепция циркулировала только в академических изданиях и кругах, а сегодня она уже овладела общественным сознанием. Овладела, несмотря на отсутствие ее широкого освещения в СМИ: там больше представлен лепет ретролибералов, которые стращают население новой индустриализацией, будто вслед за тем начнутся сталинизм и тоталитаризм, произойдет возврат к 30-м
