          Le Consulat, Lisbon + Taberna das Flores – an impressive restrained soirée   
 
 The bar area

Yesterday evening turned out to nicely restrained starting at the new Le Consulat Hotel in Central Lisbon and opened at the end of May. It is a French venture involving François Blot and Valérie Guérend. François hails from Honfleur in Normandy but has close family links to wine in both South West France and North Africa. Le Consulat used to be the Brazilian Consulate, hence of course the name. 

I met François and Valerie last evening. If I had known his surname was Blot I would have asked if he was, by any chance, related to Jacky Blot of Bourgueil, Monlouis and Vouvray fame.

François and Valerie have, I think, made two smart appointments. Portuguese wine expert and the chief apostle of Adegga, André Ribeirinho, has been hired to look after the wine side, while the brilliant chef André Magalhães (Taberna das Flores) will soon opening their restaurant to be called Taberna Fina.

          Huawei Marine Selected for Cameroon-Brazil Subsea cable   
Huawei Marine, the joint venture between Huawei Technologies and UK-based Global Marine Systems, announced it has been contracted by China Unicom and Cameroon government-owned infrastructure operator Camtel to construct the South Atlantic Inter Link (SAIL), marking the official commencement of the SAIL cable system implementation phase.

Funded with investment from China Unicom and Camtel, the SAIL system will link Cameroon and Brazil and span around 6,000 km. The cable system will comprise 4 fibre pairs and offer a design capacity of 32 Tbit/s based on Huawei Marine’s advanced 100 Gbit/s technology.

The SAIL system will be the first direct access cable to connect Africa and South America, and on completion is designed to provide a reliable, high-quality intercontinental communications infrastructure between the two developing regions.



  • Huawei Marine originally announced that it had been commissioned to construct the Cameroon-Brazil cable system, initially called Cameroon-Brazil Cable System (CBCS), in October 2015.
  • Also in 2015, Huawei Marine announced it had started marine installation of the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS), Cameroon's first wholly-owned submarine cable and part funded by the Cameroon government. Spanning around 1,100 km, the NCSCS directly connects Kribi in Cameroon with Lagos in Nigeria and will deliver 12.8 Tbit/s of capacity.
  • Camtel states that to date it has deployed more than 8,000 km of fibre that connects the ten regional chief towns in Cameroon, as well as around 60 divisional/sub-divisional chief towns and hundreds of rural communities; it also provides connectivity to CEMAC region countries including Chad. The company is aiming to build a network spanning over 20,000 km.


          Claro Brazil partners with Huawei to launch 4.5G    
Huawei announced that Claro Brazil recently launched what is claimed to be the first commercial 4.5G network in Brazil, incorporating 4 x 4 MIMO, carrier aggregation (CA) and 256QAM technology, in the city of Brasilia.

Claro demonstrated 4.5G data rates averaging 250 Mbit/s on compatible smartphones during the release ceremony in Brasilia, which is claimed to be around ten times the average rate delivered on the existing 4G network. Claro also announced its new tariff policy at the event, which features increased data allowances for existing packages.

Huawei noted that as smartphones featuring support for both 4 x 4 MIMO and 256QAM become available in the market, users will be able to access the enhanced capabilities offered by the 4.5G network. On the network side, Claro is able to provide mobile Internet access with fibre-like speeds to mobile customers with suitable devices.

Huawei noted that 4.5G Evolution helps operators enhance their networks by introducing 5G technologies into existing 4G networks. This can allow operators to trial 5G-like services and develop the business models that 5G will support in the future.

Separately, Huawei announced that working with French operator SFR it had completed the first pre-commercial field verification of 4 x 4 MIMO technology in France, enabling a downlink throughput of 628.3 Mbit/s using a commercially available phone on SFR's 4.5G network.

The tests with SFR involved a commercial phone operating on the live SFR 4.5G network and served to verify that the use of 4 x 4 MIMO, combined with 2 CC carrier aggregation and 256QAM modulation, can enable throughput of up to 628.3 Mbit/s. Huawei noted that SFR is aiming to extend its 4.5G network coverage to 90% of customers in France by the end of the year, and to increase this to 99% during 2018.


Commenting on the network launch, Claro CEO Paulo César Teixeira said, "The commercial release of the 4.5G network, with 4 x 4 MIMO, carrier aggregation, 700 MHz spectrum activation and advanced modulation, will help the Brazilian communications industry to play a significant role in the worldwide arena, as the country is a pioneer in this technology… Claro will use the recently acquired 700 MHz frequency band as a part of its ongoing effort to build a quality, next-gen mobile network nationwide".

          Typology of the Indian Fan in the context of the FIFA World Cup.    
I don't really follow soccer*. So I don't know much about soccer. But I follow a lot of Indian soccer fans. I view them with mild amusement mixed with scientific curiosity. I study them. I try to find patterns in their bizarrely enthusiastic behavior. And I love doing pop-socio and pop-psych analysis of their behavior and their attitudes towards a game where India ranks even lower than countries smaller than my apartment building in Pune.

So I present here a typology of the Indian Fan in the context of the upcoming World Cup. The typology is arranged according to which country they support or bet on to lift the cup.

BRAZIL: This one is a no-brainer really, so let's get it out of the way. Everyone loves Brazil. It's a country that has won the cup the most often. They always have some of the best players, a style of play which is considered exciting, and wear really eye-catching yellow-and-green colors. So even someone with or without the most rudimentary knowledge of the game feels comfortable saying "Brazil of course!" when someone asks "Which team do you support?" It's like picking the Patriots at the beginning of the NFL season.

But it goes beyond just how good the team is on average (here comes the pop-socio and pop-psych). Brazil is "nice". Brazil is "safe". Other than soccer, what is Brazil associated with? Carnivals, pretty people, beaches, being part of the fashionable BRIC block, and again, carnivals. If countries were brands, Brazil would be like Linux - not really that relevant to your life but easy to love. It's the kind of country that if you visit as an Indian, you expect to love.

So might as well support them. Plus they are the hosts this time. Western media is being mean to them just like they were mean to India in the run-up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games. They have messy social inequality issues just like us. Yes, Brazil is safe to support.

BEST 2 EUROPEAN UNION TEAMS: At any given time, at least 2 of the 3 objectively best teams in the world are from the EU. So the self-proclaimed "knowledgeable" soccer fan from India will be telling anyone willing to listen that one of those two teams is SURE to win. One of the two is always ALWAYS Germany. And the other is some country whose economy Germany has bailed out or will be bailing out soon. Right now it's Spain. A decade ago, it was France. In between, Italy took a break from electing Caligula-esque Prime Ministers to occupy that spot.

So Germany and "Another EU country" are the best bets for Indian soccer pundits who want to set themselves apart from the bandwagon Brazil supporters and maintain a chance for gloating when the dust settles.

ARGENTINA: Ah, Argentina! The most bizarre underdog-favorite combinations in the history of sport. I say this because some of my friends who support Argentina are genuinely convinced that Argentina is THE best team, regardless of the FIFA rankings. These verbose justifications start with "Messi is...." and then meander into incomprehensibility. Other friends supporting Argentina are steadfast about the team's underdog tag. "I always support an underdog, yaar!"

The media helps in whipping up support for Argentina too, given that Argentina is to FIFA what Notre Dame is to college football in America. Every damn year when the college football starts, there will be pundits in the media saying "OH NOTRE DAME HAS A FINE FINE TEAM THIS YEAR!". Most years, they stay in the rankings for three weeks before dropping out. Once in a couple of decades, in the vein of a stopped clock being right twice a day, Notre Dame will indeed have a great season. And then the pundits preen. And Hollywood makes an atrociously weepy movie starring a hobbit. But I ramble.    

So it goes with Argentina. Call it the continuing halo effect of bad boy Maradona. Or maybe the current halo effect of some guy named Messi who's done diddly-squat in two World Cups, but apparently does great in domestic soccer matches in Europe.

HOLLAND: The Dutch team is for true-blue underdog supporters. Again, I don't know much about soccer. But from what I am told, this team has choked more times than the South African cricket team, the 1990s Buffalo Bills, and Ivan Lendl combined. Which makes them particularly alluring for people who just love supporting an underdog in the faint hope that they will be proven right. Last time, these fans were rewarded by having to wait as long as the finals to have their hearts broken.

But still, for these folks, it is HUP HOLLAND HUP. A friend of mine says that the bright orange jerseys appeal to the latent Hindutva tendencies in some Indian fans, but we'll put a pin in that for now.

ANOTHER EU TEAM: The previous four categories take care of 90% of Indian soccer fans. Which brings us to self-proclaimed "knowledgeable" fans of the game who don't like being lumped with the conventional wisdom. They need to cogently claim that a different underdog is actually going to take home the cup, but the heathen masses are too blinded by media tropes to see it. So they pick a team which is ranked somewhere from 4th to 8th in the FIFA rankings and which has a player they have watched in one of the domestic soccer leagues from Europe.

"Of course it'll be Portugal yaar! That Cristiano Ronaldo I tell you...."

For the last 3 World Cups, the top choice for these people has been Portugal, thanks to this Ronaldo fella. Never mind that he and his team have shown the poor judgment of associating themselves with the New York Jets to practice for the World Cup. That anyone can think that a guy who voluntarily decided to learn something from Rex Ryan has any chance of winning anything shows how little soccer fans know about real football. But I troll. And I digress.

When it's not Portugal, it is some other European country that yes, Germany will also have to bail out.  

ENGLAND: Don't ask me why. Seriously don't. I know very little about soccer but even I know enough to know that the chances of England winning the cup are only negligibly higher than an Indian winning the Olympic 100 meter gold. And yet a few Indians will be steadfast in their support of England.

One guy I knew used to base his support on the supposedly "under-appreciated talents" of David Beckham. This was before Beckham became known as the guy who sells underwear on giant hoardings in Times Square. These days, I suspect the support for England is driven by the fact that so many Indians spend so much money on low quality made-in-Bangladesh jerseys of teams from the EPL, that they feel obliged to go all the way.

But seriously Indian supporters of England soccer, what are the chances that an England cricket team will win an ICC title AND a notionally English guy will win the Wimbledon AND England will win the FIFA World Cup, all within 5 years?

USA: The only Indians who support the US are a) Indians who live in the US, and b) follow only cricket and/or American sports. Yes, this includes me, ok? The rest of the time, we are happy with our WillowTV subscription, our NFL fantasy football leagues, out March madness brackets, our opinions on LeBron and the Heat, our love or hate for the Yankees or the Red Sox. We look at MLS ads and go "lulz". We see European soccer matches on our cable guide menu and go "WTF?".

But then once every four years, this damn World Cup thing comes along. And everyone is talking about it. Not just CNN, who will usually talk about the most vapid things. So what do we do?

USA! USA! USA!

We google furiously to find out who our players are. We try to figure out what the hell "Group of Death" means. We practice our pronunciation of Klinsmann. And we set a countdown clock to the start of the NFL season.

          T&T ranked 14th for resource governance   

T&T scored 64 out of 100 points in the 2017 Resource Governance Index and ranked 14th out of the 89 assessments undertaken in the 81 countries surveyed.

Sherwin Long, head of the T&T Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (TTEITI), said T&T was one of the better performing countries in terms of score.

“We scored 64 out of 100. Out of the Enabling Environment we scored 71 out of 100, Revenue Management was our weakest performance and we scored 57 out of 100. We fell short in Revenue Management because of national budgeting fiscal rules and open data restrictions ,” he said yesterday at the launch of the 2017 Governance Report at the Ministry of Energy’s offices at the International Waterfront in Port-of-Spain.

The Index assesses the quality of governance in 81 countries which produce 82 per cent of the world’s oil and 17 per cent of its gas. T&T ranked fourth in Latin American and Caribbean behind Chile, Brazil and Colombia.

Long said T&T’s state enterprise reporting rules appear to be sound. Sound rules also govern the Heritage and Stabilisation Fund (HSF) which helped this country’s high position. He added that the Index also looked at state enterprises.

“Petrotrin was assessed against 74 other state energy enterprises globally and Petrotrin ranked ninth out of these state run enterprises with a score of 75. The company was deemed to have good rules related to the reporting on finances and operations as well as transfers from the company to Central Government,” he said.

Long said the index is important as it determines how other agencies evaluate T&T and it improves the country’s governance.

“Credit agencies look at governance indices to rank the country such as the Corruption Perception Index and the Global Competitiveness Index. These are indicators which show what we face as a country in terms of corruption and competitiveness,” he said.

Long said Brazil was ranked higher than T&T on the Index although there are allegations of corruption surrounding acting President Michel Temer and state owned oil company Petrobas because more than one factor determines the ranking.

“What the Index looked at is the laws as well as well as the practice. How well are these laws actually used? In terms of the laws and the practice in T&T there was a ten point difference between the law and how it is actually practiced and governs the energy sector. In T&T, there is a large gap between the law and how it is practised,” he explained.

Creative Agency: Brandholic
Project Type: Produced, Commercial Work
Client: Villa Pallato
Location: Gaspar, Brazil
Packaging Contents: Fine mushrooms
Packaging Substrate / Materials: Paper, glass
Printing Process: Hot-stamping, Offset printing

Villa Pallato is a Brazilian brand specializing in the import of fine mushrooms, Italian truffles and derivatives. All carefully selected and rigorously approved. A line of products of high durability, maintaining the purest taste and texture of the mushrooms, in order to make it more accessible and considerably increase consumption in our country.

Villa Pallato, the Village of Paladar in Italian, refers to the time of immigrants and their importance to agriculture in the country. The company's hometown was heavily influenced by Italian immigration with traces of the culture scattered throughout the city. Cozy name that refers to something homemade, made with love, with a flowing sound, is easy to remember.

In addition to the graphic material that it used, the brand could not reach a conceptual connection with the target audience of this type of product, resulting in the lack of prominence deserved in the pdv. Our mission was to build the new brand, conceptualization, naming, create the design and communication materials, which resulted in a new positioning, visibility and sales for Villa Pallato.

          Bemis to cut 300 jobs, close 2 facilities   

Bemis Co. Inc. said it will cut 300 jobs as part of a restructuring plan aimed at saving about $55 million to $60 million a year. The job cuts will be made over the next three years. The job cuts represent about 5% of the global administrative workforce, and about 1.7% of the total workforce. The plastic packaging supplier said it will close two manufacturing facilities, with one closure beginning this year and the other in 2018. The employees of those facilities will be transferred to other locations. "During April, we began a review to align our U.S. manufacturing and administrative cost structures with the demands of our customer base to better position the Company in the current environment and for its long-term success," said Chief Executive William Austen. "Given the challenges in the Brazilian economic environment, we also expanded the scope of our review to include our entire global business." The stock, which was still inactive in premarket trade, has lost 1.8% year to date while the S&P 500 has gained 8.1%.

          Comment on Bike sharing schemes – how to solve the final mile problem by Mark Lenahan   
Very interesting and helpful! A quick observation about one scheme in South America, Rio De Janeiro's Bike Rio. (I'd add a link to the website here if I could find one!). It's a fixed station system with a pricing model very similar to European ones - low cost per hour but it starts to go up a lot if you don't return the bike. Rio is a great city to cycle in, far safer than Dublin for example, with seperated bike lanes around all of the beaches and the lagoon. The only problem is the system is virtually unusable by foreign tourists - little or no English or other languages, you need a Brazilian phone number to register, you either need data roaming (for the app) or a Brazilan phone with you to pick up and drop off. I really like these schemes (Bixi in Montreal is great for visitors), but I'd like to use them more often as a traveller. You get a much better feeling of a city on foot or on a bike than you do from being underground in a metro or being driven from point to point.

Alle zozzerie non c'e' mai fine, come ben sappiamo.

Cominciamo con quelle televisive! SIGLA!



Ebbene si, altre sfide a colpi di canzoni improbabili, macellazione plurima di successi intramontabili e abuso premeditato di showtunes.
Ci mancano schizzi di sangue e saturazione dei colori e sembra di guardare una puntata di "Spartacus: Blood & Sand".
Invece no, e' solo il Lord che sceglie (rigorosamente a caso, ricordiamoci..) la pulzella che sta settimana non va a casa.

Povere. Loro si sono gia' affezionate, sono gia' BFF&ever, si amano alla follia, sono ormai come sorelle..*notate il mio tono incredulo/sarcastico?*

Fatto sta che, come predetto, la fossette-dotata Dani va a casa perche' diciamocelo, si muove come un facocero ubriaco, la vogliamo davvero mettere nel West End?
No, vero?
Ecco, a casa a calci. (assomiglia anche vagamente a Jesse Buckley grassa, e sappiamo tutti quanto io ami Jesse..BLEURGH..)
Mi sorprende solo che la sua sfidante fosse Danielle, che io do come favorita.
E non la do per favorita perche' conosco la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen (che ha avuto anche il suo stacchettino televisivo! Invece di far vedere la mamma, o che ne so, la famiglia a casa con le magliette fatte a mano che dicono "Danielle for Dorothy" o qualcosa di altrettanto ameno..no! Danielle ha lo stacchettino strappalacrime-casoumano della sua insegnante di recitazione SLASH mentore SLASH mamma chioccia! Se non e' ammmore questo..), la do per favorita perche' effettivamente e' la piu' brava la' dentro.
E non ti fa venire voglia di prenderla a schiaffi, che e' gia' un bel passo avanti.

L'altra volta con le Nancy, Jodie vinse per via della sua personalita' ciociara ed esuberante, vagamente pasticciona e terra terra.
Probabilmente non era la piu' adatta al ruolo, probabilmente non era quella con piu' talento, la sua performance e' obiettivamente piena di cheese e way over the top.
Ma aveva talmente tanta personalita' da traboccare e il pubblico a casa, che di talento non ci capisce un beneamato cazzo ma ha come minimo 6 telefonini dentro casa, vota perche' gli stai simpa. Non perche' hai talento. Basta che sei simpa. Uh, e Jodie era simpa assai.

Qui, a sto giro? Personalita' poca.
E quella che c'e' la vorresti sopprimere a badilate forti.
Quindi spingiamo sul talento e chissa', che sia la volta buona che vince qualcuno che sa VERAMENTE fare il lavoro per cui verra' pagata? (sempre 6 show a settimana, perche' figurati! Il Lord prende gente che non ha la stamina ne' il training e poi va in giro affermando che le sue leading ladies "non si devono rovinare la voce con 8 show a settimana", quindi fanno solo 6 show. Salvo poi farne fare 8 a gente come Kerry Ellis, che pora stronza, ha fatto anche la drama school e anni di gavetta. Se lo poteva evitare, no? visto che basta andare in tv per diventare una 'leading lady'..*sentite il mio tono polemico?*)

Quindi aspettiamo sabato/domenica per vederne fatta fuori un'altra, probabilmente una delle altre due che mi sta sul culo, o Emilie-col-buco-tra-i-denti o Jenny-con-l'acne, di rado sbaglio predizioni..

Nel frattempo, settimana un po' loffia..

GRUMPY OLD WOMEN 2: CHIN UP BRITAIN (20.04.10)
Direttamente dallo show televisivo (e direttamente dal tour nazionale), presentiamo: le Vecchie Brontolone!
Ovvero, tre donne che si lamentano. Di tutto. Non e' che si lamentano, a dirla tutta. Dicono la verita'. E gli uomini in sala non si vogliono sentir dire la verita'.
Non vogliono sapere di menopausa, cicli sballati, ansie da pulizie di casa, rapporti col vicinato/coi figli/con le amiche/col sesso.
Due ore di lamentele serrate. Niente che vostra mamma non faccia quando vi bracca sul divano, mentre lei lava i piatti e voi tentate invano di guardare Gilmore Girls..
A noi donne non sembra altro che l'esposizione della realta' come la conosciamo, solo in a very funny way.
Per gli uomini e' OMG DI CHE COSA STANNO PARLANDO QUESTE!?
Io mi sono squartata. Sono grumpy old woman anche io sa, che vi credete? 30 anni e' piu' che sufficente per diventarlo.
Nel cast la abrasiva Jenny Eclair, che ne dice di tutti i colori e poi ghigna come i bambini che dicono le barzellette sporche di Pierino, la overacting Wendi Peters che fa solo facce brutte e ammazza un po' il testo..e lei, Suzie "Madame Morrible" Blake, adorabile, funny, multitalented e simpatica senza sforzo, si becca le risate piu' grosse per il semplice modo con cui dice le battute, e se le merita.
Punto vero e proprio della serata e' ridare agli uomini la loro spina dorsale, ai britannici la loro britishness e alle donne il loro meritato ruolo da imperatrici del mondo.
Probabilmente non ci riusciranno, ma nel frattempo ci fanno fare un sacco di risate.

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR (21.04.10)
Dunque, c'era un tizio di nome David Essex (che mi dicono sia un cantante famoso, io non l'ho mai sentito nemmeno di striscio..), che aveva una giostra itinerante..e c'era suo figlio, un coattello senza talento, e un paio di ensemble inutili dietro, ok? Poi c'era Nicola Brazil (ex ensamble Wicked, ex penosa Sandy in Grease) col vestito rosa da Glinda e le extensions tipo gatto morto in testa, che faceva la figlia del ricco mafioso che si innamora del figlio di David Essex, ok? OK.
Dunque. Poi..Ah si, c'era lo scagnozzo del mafioso che mette a soqquadro la fiera perche'..perche'..boh non mi ricordo, ma deve avere a che fare con la figlia del mafioso col gatto morto in testa..(in testa alla figlia, non al mafioso. Il mafioso era pelato.) C'era una chiaroveggente con un accento molesto e sua figlia (con accento ancora piu' molesto) innamorate rispettivamente del padre/David Essex e del figlio coatto.
Ah, e poi c'e' Shona "gambetta di legno" White, o meglio la tizia che si e' ingoiata Shona, perche' e' diventata il doppio di quello che era..Da standby Elphaba e' finita a vendere i palloncini sullo sfondo, in jeans a dir poco unflattering per una che di culo e' gia' sulla via della richiesta di condono edilizio. Poraccia.
Ogni tanto calano dal soffitto cavalli da carosello e entrano in scena macchine a scontro traballanti (cioe' un triciclo con sopra la scocca di una macchina a scontro) che girano in tondo perche' voglio dire, e' il Garrick eh? Dove cazzo le vuoi far andare..
Insomma partono le canzoni, finiscono le canzoni, ripartono altre canzoni...
Mai sentite. Ma nemmeno per sbaglio. Non so cosa c'entrassero.
Dialoghi..mah, lasciamo perdere.
Poi finisce il primo tempo, noi colleghi ci guardiamo inorriditi e mormorando un 'goodness, would you look at the time? Meglio che vada, c'ho il gatto sul fuoco..' ce la filiamo alla chetichella.
Non sapremo mai come va a finire.
E pensare che hanno osato chiudere un capolavoro come Zorro. Tsk.

Mamma mia che zozzeria.


Che altro?

La Roma e' prima in classifica.

Idina e' apparsa in Glee, come la madonna, ancora un po' pienotta dalla gravidanza.

Sta nuvola del piffero se ne sta sfanculando verso il Mare del Nord, quindi possiamo tornare alle nostre vite..c'ho un amico bloccato in Cina che forse rientra tra due giorni, i Whingers sono bloccati a NYC (poracci, ve'?), John Owen Jones e' ormai di casa a Sharm El Sheik e non ha fatto in tempo a tornare per la apertura del Tour di Les Mis a Edinburgo (aggiungerei: LOL), Paul e' quasi gia' in volo per la Florida per il matrimonio di cui e' Testimone e per cui stava sclerando da una settimana..e io mi faccio un quattro giorni a Roma di meritato riposo, e vaffanculo. Ma non voglio fare niente di niente di niente di NIENTE. Voglio mangiare i piatti di mamma, voglio dormire, farmi comprare roba dai parenti e prendere un po' di sole.

Non mi dovrei lamentare, siamo stati graziati da un paio di settimane di sole e cielo limpido, ma fa un cazzo di freddo, eccheddiamine..Ho messo via guanti e sciarpe, mi rifiuto di tirarle fuori di nuovo, ecco. *e fu cosi', bambini, che mi beccai la polmonite..*

Siamo ancora un po' nervosetti, direi che un po' di vacanza fa bene a tutti.

The Jury on the beach!

17 Awards for an Eclectic Selection    

The different juries from the 41st International Animation Film Festival have revealed the winners from Annecy 2017! Amongst the 216 films nominated in the official competition (all categories combined), 17 awards were attributed during the Closing Ceremony on Saturday 17th June.

       

HONORARY CRISTAL

Marcel Jean handed over the Honorary Cristal to Georges Schwizgebel to commemorate his prolific career.

"For the fifth year in a row, the Annecy Festival awarded the Honorary Cristal to a leading figure in the animation world. This year, it’s not only an exceptional filmmaker that we’ve crowned, but a friend as well. The Swiss director Georges Schwizgebel has had his films in competition at the Annecy Festival fourteen times. Georges has been a member of the jury at the Festival twice and two of his shorts, The Ride to the Abyss and 78 Turns, are included in the list of the 100 best animation films that we published in 2006.

Georges Schwizgebel is an animation guru, an artisan of precision and an artist who has inspired many young animators. His style can be described as baroque and swirling, characterised by a confident brushstroke and a resolutely postmodern approach with his relationship to history and art.” Marcel Jean

His film Erlking was screened as his son Louis Schwizgebel-Wang played the piano.

US Open Cup

Oh what a night! Two 2nd division teams advanced to play each other in the Quarterfinals. And both did so in dramatic fashion.

Mitch Hildebrandt! Who had him listed as a 2017 US Open Cup hero??? He and the Cinicinnati defense stymied Chicago all game long, then stone cold blasted them in the Penalty Kick Shootout! Saving 3 of 4 PKs that Chicago attempted. Wow.
  • After the game Taylor Twellan of ESPN had a great quote about Hildebrandt who had just finished a TV interview with Julie Stewart-Binks: "The first live interview anyone's ever done while standing on his head."

The Cincinnati Enquirer is all over the story. Front page photos and the 4 top stories on the website are all FCC related.
  • One the papers "Regular Sports Guy" columnists even gets it. By Paul Daugherty for the Enquirer.

And down in Florida Kwadwo Poku got a breakaway and scored with the last kick of the game to push Miami over Atlanta!

The Cincy v Chicago game was live on ESPN too! Fantastic. And over 32k were in the stands.

There were so many great goals last night, but this was my favorite:


Ike Opara scored for SKC last night too. He is a centerback. And this is his 4 goal (in all comps) since Jun 4.

Minnesota United

The team's first trip to NYC and Yankee stadium tonight. I'm sure they are excited. But there quality on the road has been so poor that I don't see them getting much from this game. I have no idea why they are so different than when they play at home, but they sure are.

NYC has lost just 1 time at home this season. And MNUFC has not won a road game. Is tonight the night that changes? Always possible. But not probable.
  • NYC does give up goals though. Defense is not their forte.

One of the best new albums I have heard in a long time: Obnox - Niggative Approach (12XU)
  • Created by Lamont Thomas from Cleveland. I knew him from the scene at Used Kids Record Store in Columbus in the 90s, and knew him as Bim Thomas.
  • This album is just wild. I have called it Punk-chaos-nose-RnB meets one-man lo-fi Funkadelic.
  • Buy it right here at Bandcamp.

Question and answer from Atlanta United team president Darren Eales.
Q: What has been the best moment on the field so far this season?
A: There have been some fantastic moments. For me, winning our first game. Going to Minnesota, first ever win, doing it in the snow.
Going into that game I was a little bit fearful. We had a team of South Amercians playing against a bunch of Scandinavians.
Us both being expansion teams, us scoring six goals, which was a record for an expansion team, all of that made it even sweeter.

          Graphic: Emerging markets enjoy vintage start to year   

By Marc Jones

LONDON (Reuters) - Emerging markets have had one of their best first halves to a year on record, with stocks up 17.5 percent and a 15 percent surge by Mexico's peso underscoring how worries about U.S. President Donald Trump's policies have been forgotten for now.

As this graphic - http://tmsnrt.rs/2hn5N02 - shows, Poland has been the star performer for stocks trackers, with a 34 percent rise in dollar terms thanks to strong growth numbers and a more than 12 percent rise in the zloty.

Central and eastern Europe has been a hotspot all round.

The Czech crown is up over 11 percent versus the dollar, Hungary's forint is up 8 percent despite an uber-dovish central bank and Romania's leu, in a country which has just had a political crisis, is up 7.7 percent. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2hniYya)

Mexican, Indian, Chinese, and Turkish stocks have taken off, climbing somewhere between 20 and 30 percent.

The boom has come as investors have shrugged off the U.S. rate rises, oil and tech tumbles and looked to the positives.

The dollar has just had its worst quarter in almost seven years which means EM currencies are up. Global growth is gaining traction and borrowing costs via bond yields had been steadily sliding again until this week.

As well as flying equities, bonds in local emerging market currencies have returned almost 11 percent in dollar terms, while hard currency sovereign debt is up over 6 percent. (For the breakdown click here http://tmsnrt.rs/2ih2QQ9)

There are always laggards though.

Russian equities, heavily oil-reliant and a star of late 2016, have lost 15 percent and the rift between Qatar and its Middle East neighbours has seen its stocks clobbered 12 percent in a matter of weeks.

Though there has been a rebound this week, Brazil's real has been a poor performer. It is down over 1 percent due to fresh corruption scandals that have hit the country.

Another one to avoid has been the Philippine peso which is down 1.7 percent on fears that Islamic State, on the backfoot in Iraq and Syria, is trying to set up a stronghold in the Muslim south of the country.

          Graphics: Stocks fly in first half but oil and dollar big losers   

LONDON (Reuters) - World stocks were on track for their best start to a year since 2003 while oil and the dollar were facing their biggest first-half drop for years.

The early months of 2017 were marked by the so-called Trump trades premised on U.S. President Donald Trump's pledges of multi-trillion dollar spending and by a change in Europe's political and growth outlook that has lured back investors.

But arguably the most significant shift for investors came in the last week of the second quarter when, in what looked like a concerted move, central bank policymakers appeared to signal it would soon be time to wind back the monetary stimulus that has buoyed markets for much of this decade.

As this graphic http://reut.rs/2sxO66c shows the dollar index, already down 4.5 percent for 2017 a week ago, was down 6.5 percent at Thursday's close and on track for its worst quarter in seven years and worst first half since 2003.

This despite the U.S. Federal Reserve raising interest rates twice this year.

The euro, boosted by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi hinting on Wednesday at tweaks to the bank's ultra-loose monetary policy stance, is up more than 8 percent year-to-date and heading for its best quarter in seven.

Dollar weakness has helped lift emerging equities, as measured by MSCI's main index almost 18 percent in dollar terms so far this year.

World stocks have gained more than 10 percent in dollar terms, their best first half since 2003.

Japan's Nikkei 225 stock index gained 9.6 percent, just ahead of the S&P 500 on 9.2 percent.

Stuck at the bottom of the performance league table, down 16.5 percent in dollar terms year-to-date is Brent crude oil, hit by a perception that output cuts agreed by OPEC producers and others will not be enough to stem the glut of oil.

It was on track for its worst first six months of any year since 1998.

In Brexit-bound Britain, which has just been through a messy election, the pound has dropped 3 percent against the euro. The weaker currency has been a boost for exporters, lifting the country's main FTSE 100 stock index 8.2 percent.

Emerging markets have shrugged off the U.S. rate rises and the oil and tech tumbles. Bonds in emerging market currencies have returned almost 10 percent in dollar terms, while hard currency sovereign debt is up 6 percent.

But within emerging markets there are losers as well as winners. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2dZbdP5)

Russian equities, heavily oil-reliant and a star of late 2016, have lost 17 percent but energy importer Turkey's stock index has risen 30 percent, despite inflation, domestic political risks and policy wobbles.

The Mexican peso is the world's top performing currency, up 15 percent on the dollar, as faith wanes in Trump's ability to implement anti-trade and anti-immigration pledges. (See graphic, http://tmsnrt.rs/2egbfVh)

Perhaps the biggest surprise has been Poland's zloty which has surged 13 percent against the dollar.

Brazil's real has been one of the worst-performing currencies, down 4 percent in 2017 due to fresh corruption scandals that have hit the country.

KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI

KONSEP KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI
Apabila Anda mendengar kata “Keanekaragaman”, dalam pikiran anda mungkin akan terbayang kumpulan benda yang bermacam-macam, baik ukuran, warna, bentuk, tekstur dan sebagainya. Bayangan tersebut memang tidak salah. Kata keanekaragaman memang untuk menggambarkan keadaan bermacam-macam suatu benda, yang dapat terjadi akibat adanya perbedaan dalam hal ukuran, bentuk, tekstur ataupun jumlah.
Sedangkan kata “Hayati” menunjukkan sesuatu yang hidup. Jadi keanekaragaman hayati menggambarkan bermacam-macam makhluk hidup (organisme) penghuni biosfer.
Keanekaragaman hayati disebut juga “Biodiversitas”. Keanekaragaman atau keberagaman dari makhluk hidup dapat terjadi karena akibat adanya perbedaan warna, ukuran, bentuk, jumlah, tekstur, penampilan dan sifat-sifat lainnya.
Sedangkan keanekaragaman dari makhluk hidup dapat terlihat dengan adanya persamaan ciri antara makhluk hidup. Untuk memahami konsep keseragaman dan keberagaman makhluk hidup pergilah Anda ke halaman sekolah. Amati lingkungan sekitarnya! Anda akan menjumpai bermacam-macam tumbuhan dan hewan. Jika Anda perhatikan tumbuhan-tumbuhan itu, maka Anda akan menemukan tumbuhan-tumbuhan yang berbatang tinggi, misalnya: palem, mangga, beringin, kelapa. Dan yang berbatang rendah, misalnya: cabe, tomat, melati, mawar dan lain-lainnya. Ada tumbuhan yang berbatang keras, dan berbatang lunak. Ada yang berdaun lebar, tetapi ada pula yang berdaun kecil, serta bunga yang berwarna-warni. Begitu pula Anda akan menemukan tumbuhan-tumbuhan yang memiliki kesamaan ciri seperti: tulang daun menyirip atau sejajar, sistem perakaran tunggang atau serabut, berbiji tertutup atau terbuka, mahkota bunga berkelipatan 3 atau 5 dan lain-lain. Begitu pula pada hewan-hewan yang Anda temukan, terdapat hewan-hewan yang bertubuh besar seperti kucing, sapi, kerbau, dan yang bertubuh kecil seperti semut
serta kupu-kupu. Ada hewan berkaki empat, seperti kucing. Berkaki dua seperti ayam. Berkaki banyak seperti lipan dan luwing. Juga akan tampak burung yang memiliki bulu dan bersayap.

Di samping itu, Anda juga akan menemukan hewan yang hidupnya di air seperti: ikan mas, lele, ikan gurame. Dan hewan-hewan yang hidup di darat seperti kucing, burung dan lain-lain. Ada hewan yang tubuhnya ditutupi bulu seperti burung, ayam. Ada yang bersisik seperti ikan gurame, ikan mas, dan ada pula yang berambut seperti kucing, kelinci dan lain-lain.
Dari hasil pengamatan atau observasi di halaman sekolah, Anda telah menemukan adanya keseragaman dan keberagaman pada makhluk hidup.
Untuk lebih memahami uraian diatas, cobalah Anda kerjakan kegiatan praktikum berikut:
1. KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI TINGKAT GEN
Keanekaragaman hayati tidak saja terjadi antar jenis, tetapi dalam satu jenis pun terdapat keanekaragaman. Adanya perbedaan warna, bentuk, dan ukuran dalam satu jenis disebut variasi.
Untuk mendapatkan gambaran yang lebih jelas tentang tingkatan keanekaragaman hayati, simak uraiannya berikut ini:
1. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Gen
Apa yang dimaksud dengan keanekaragaman hayati tingkat gen? Untuk menemukan jawaban ini, cobalah amati tanaman bunga mawar. Tanaman ini memiliki bunga yang berwarna-warni, dapat berwarna merah, putih atau kuning. Atau pada tanaman mangga, keanekaragaman dapat Anda temukan antara lain pada bentuk buahnya, rasa, dan warnanya.
Demikian juga pada hewan. Anda dapat membandingkan ayam kampung, ayam hutan, ayam ras, dan ayam lainnya. Anda akan melihat keanekaragaman sifat antara lain pada bentuk dan ukuran tubuh, warna bulu dan bentuk pial (jengger).

Gambar 1. Keanekaragaman gen pada ayam
Keanekaragaman warna bunga pada tanaman mawar. Bentuk, rasa, warna pada buah mangga, serta keanekaragaman sifat, warna bulu dan bentuk pial pada ayam, ini semua disebabkan oleh pengaruh perangkat pembawa sifat yang disebut dengan gen. Semua makhluk hidup dalam satu spesies/jenis memiliki perangkat dasar penyusun gen yang sama. Gen merupakan bagian kromosom yang mengendalikan ciri atau sifat suatu organisme yang bersifat diturunkan dari induk/orang tua kepada keturunannya.
Gen pada setiap individu, walaupun perangkat dasar penyusunnya sama, tetapi susunannya berbeda-beda bergantung pada masing-masing induknya. Susunan perangkat gen inilah yang menentukan ciri atau sifat suatu individu dalam satu spesies.
Apa yang menyebabkan terjadinya keanekaragaman gen? Perkawinan antara dua individu makhluk hidup sejenis merupakan salah satu penyebabnya. Keturunan dari hasil perkawinan memiliki susunan perangkat gen yang berasal dari kedua induk/orang tuanya. Kombinasi susunan perangkat gen dari dua induk tersebut akan menyebabkan keanekaragaman individu dalam satu spesies berupa varietas-varietas (varitas) yang terjadi secara alami atau secara buatan.
Keanekaragaman yang terjadi secara alami adalah akibat adaptasi atau penyesuaian diri setiap individu dengan lingkungan, seperti pada rambutan. Faktor lingkungan juga turut mempengaruhi sifat yang tampak (fenotip) suatu individu di samping ditentukan oleh faktor genetiknya (genotip). Sedangkan keanekaragaman buatan dapat terjadi antara lain melalui perkawinan silang (hibridisasi), seperti pada berbagai jenis mangga.
Perbedaan sifat pada jenis mangga dapat Anda amati pada tabel berikut:
No. Mangga Bentuk Buah Rasa arima
1.
2.
3. golek
kuini
gedong lonjong panjang
bulat telur, besar
bulat, kecil manis
manis
lebih manis tidak wangi
wangi
tidak wangi
Pada manusia juga terdapat keanekaragaman gen yang menunjukkan sifat-sifat berbeda, antara lain ukuran tubuh (besar, kecil, sedang); warna kulit (hitam, putih, sawo matang, kuning); warna mata (biru, hitam, coklat), serta bentuk rambut (ikal, lurus, keriting). Cobalah perhatikan diri Anda sendiri! Ciri atau sifat apa yang Anda miliki? Sesuaikan dengan uraian di atas?
2. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Jenis
Dapatkah Anda membedakan antara tumbuhan kelapa aren, nipah dan pinang? Atau membedakan jenis kacang-kacangan, seperti kacang tanah, kacang buncis, kacang kapri, dan kacang hijau? Atau Anda dapat membedakan kelompok hewan antara kucing,harimau, singa dan citah? Jika hal ini dapat Anda bedakan dengan benar, maka paling tidak sedikitnya anda telah mengetahui tentang keanekaragaman jenis.
Untuk mengetahui keanekaragaman hayati tingkat jenis pada tumbuhan atau hewan, anda dapat mengamati, antara lain ciri-ciri fisiknya. Misalnya bentuk dan ukuran tubuh,warna, kebiasaan hidup dan lain-lain.
Contoh, dalam keluarga kacang-kacangan, antara lain; kacang tanah, kacang kapri, kacang hijau dan kacang buncis. Di antara jenis kacang-kacangan tersebut Anda dapat dengan mudah membedakannya, karena antara mereka ditemukan ciri-ciri yang berbeda antara ciri satu dengan yang lainnya. Misalnya ukuran tubuh atau batang (ada yang tinggi dan pendek); kebiasaan hidup (tumbuh tegak, ada yang merambat), bentuk buah dan biji, warna biji, jumlah biji, serta rasanya yang berbeda.

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman jenis pada kacang-kacangan
Contoh lain, keanekaragaman pada keluarga kucing. Di kebun binatang, Anda dapat mengamati hewan harimau, singa, citah dan kucing.

Gambar 2. Keanek ragaman jenis pada hewan (a) harimau, (b) singan, (c) kucing dan (d) citah.
Walaupun hewan-hewan tersebut termasuk dalam satu familia/suku Felidae, tetapi diantara mereka terdapat perbedaan-perbedaan sifat yang mencolok. Misalnya, perbedaan warna bulu, tipe lorengnya, ukuran tubuh, tingkah laku, serta lingkungan hidupnya.
Cobalah Anda perhatikan perbedaan sifat dari hewan berikut ini :
No. Ciri-ciri Kucing Harimau Singa Citah
1.

2.

3. Ukuran tubuh
Warna bulu

Tempat hidup Kecil

Hitam, putih, kuning
Hutan, rumah Besar

Hitam, putih, kuning
Hutan Besar

Hitam, putih, kuning
Hutan Sedang

Hitam/ putih
Pohon
Demikian pula pada kelompok tumbuhan yang tumbuh di dataran tinggi dan dataran rendah akan memperlihatkan perbedaan-perbedaan sifat pada tinggi batang, daun dan bunga. Contohnya kelapa, aren, pinang, dan lontar, seperti tampak pada tabel pengamatan berikut ini.
No Ciri-ciri Kelapa Aren Pinang Lontar
1. Tinggi Batang >30m 25m 25 15-30m
2. Daun -Panjang tangkai daun 75-150cm
-Helaian daun 5m, ujungruncing dan keras -Panjang tangkai daun 150cm Tangkai daun pendek -Panjang tangkai daun 100cm
-Helaian daun bulat, tepi daun bercangap menjari
3. Bunga Tongkol Tongkol Tongkol Bulir

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman pada suku Palmae
Dari contoh-contoh di atas, Anda dapat mengetahui ada perbedaan atau variasi sifat pada kucing, harimau, singa dan citah yang termasuk dalam familia/suku Felidae. Variasi pada suku Felidae ini menunjukkan keanekaragaman pada tingkat jenis.
Hal yang sama terdapat juga pada tanaman kelapa, aren, pinang, dan lontar yang termasuk suku Palmae atau Arecaceae.
3. Keanekaragaman Hayati Tingkat Ekosistem
Di lingkungan manapun Anda di muka bumi ini, maka Anda akan menemukan makhluk hidup lain selain Anda. Semua makhluk hidup berinteraksi atau berhubungan erat dengan lingkungan tempat hidupnya.
Lingkungan hidup meliputi komponen biotik dan komponen abiotik. Komponen biotik meliputi berbagai jenis makhluk hidup mulai yang bersel satu (uni seluler) sampai makhluk hidup bersel banyak (multi seluler) yang dapat dilihat langsung oleh kita. Komponen abiotik meliputi iklim, cahaya, batuan, air, tanah, dan kelembaban. Ini semua disebut faktor fisik. Selain faktor fisik, ada faktor kimia, seperti salinitas (kadar garam), tingkat keasaman, dan kandungan mineral.
Baik komponen biotik maupun komponen abiotik sangat beragam atau bervariasi. Oleh karena itu, ekosistem yang merupakan interaksi antara komponen biotik dengan komponen abiotik pun bervariasi pula.
Di dalam ekosistem, seluruh makhluk hidup yang terdapat di dalamnya selalu melakukan hubungan timbal balik, baik antar makhluk hidup maupun makhluk hidup dengan lingkungnnya atau komponen abiotiknya. Hubungan timbal balik ini menimbulkan keserasian hidup di dalam suatu ekosistem. Apa yang menyebabkan terjadinya keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem? Perbedaan letak geografis antara lain merupakan faktor yang menimbulkan berbagai bentuk ekosistem.

Gambar 2. Keanekaragaman ekosistem (a) padang rumput (b) padang tundra (c) gurun pasir
Perbedaan letak geografis menyebabkan perbedaan iklim. Perbedaan iklim menyebabkan terjadinya perbedaan temperature, curah hujan, intensitas cahaya matahari, dan lamanya penyinaran. Keadaan ini akan berpengaruh terhadap jenis-jenis flora (tumbuhan) dan fauna (hewan) yang menempati suatu daerah.
Di daerah dingin terdapat bioma Tundra. Di tempat ini tidak ada pohon, yang tumbuh hanya jenis lumut. Hewan yang dapat hidup, antara lain rusa kutub dan beruang kutub. Di daerah beriklim sedang terdpat bioma Taiga. Jenis tumbuhan yang paling sesuai untuk daerah ini adalah tumbuhan conifer, dan fauna/hewannya antara lain anjing hutan, dan rusa kutub.
Pada iklim tropis terdapat hutan hujan tropis. Hutan hujan tropis memiliki flora (tumbuhan) dan fauna (hewan) yang sangat kaya dan beraneka ragam. Keanekaragaman jenis-jenis flora dan fauna yang menempati suatu daerah akan membentuk ekosistem yang berbeda. Maka terbentuklah keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem.
Totalitas variasi gen, jenis dan ekosistem menunjukkan terdapat pelbagai variasi bentuk, penampakan, frekwensi, ukuran dan sifat lainnya pada tingkat yang berbeda-beda merupakan keanekaragaman hayati.
Keanekaragaman hayati berkembang dari keanekaragaman tingkat gen, keanekaragaman tingkat jenis dan keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Keanekaragaman hayati perlu dilestarikan karena didalamnya terdapat sejumlah spesies asli sebagai bahan mentah perakitan varietas-varietas unggul. Kelestarian keanekaragaman hayati pada suatu ekosistem akan terganggu bila ada komponen-komponennya yang mengalami gangguan.
Gangguan-gangguan terhadap komponen-komponen ekosistem tersebut dapat menimbulkan perubahan pada tatanan ekosistemnya. Besar atau kecilnya gangguan terhadap ekosistem dapat merubah wujud ekosistem secara perlahan-lahan atau secara cepat pula. Contoh-contoh gangguan ekosistem , antara lain penebangan pohon di hutan-hutan secara liar dan perburuan hewan secara liar dapat mengganggu keseimbangan ekosistem. Gangguan tersebut secara perlahan-lahan dapat merubah ekosistem sekaligus mempengaruhi keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Bencana tanah longsor atau letusan gunung berapi, bahkan dapat memusnahkan ekosistem. Tentu juga akan memusnahkan keanekaragaman tingkat ekosistem. Demikian halnya dengan bencana tsunami.
KEANEKARAGAMAN HAYATI INDONESIA
Tahukah Anda, bahwa Indonesia merupakan salah satu dari tiga Negara yang memiliki keanekaragaman hayati yang tinggi? Dua negara lainnya adalah Brazil dan Zaire. Tetapi dibandingkan dengan Brazil dan Zaire, Indonesia memiliki keunikan tersendiri. Keunikannya adalah disamping memiliki keanekragaman hayati yang tinggi, Indonesia mempunyai areal tipe Indomalaya yang luas, juga tipe Oriental, Australia, dan peralihannya. Selain itu di Indonesia terdapat banyak hewan dan tumbuhan langka, serta hewan dan tumbuhan endemik (penyebaran terbatas).
Untuk lebih memahami materi tersebut, silakan Anda simak uraian mengenai keaneragaman hayati yang terdapat di Indonesia berikut ini!
Indonesia terletak di daerah tropik sehingga memiliki keanekaragaman hayati yang tinggi dibandingkan dengan daerah subtropik (iklim sedang) dan kutub (iklim kutub). Tingginya keanekaragaman hayati di Indonesia ini terlihat dari berbagai macam ekosistem yang ada di Indonesia, seperti: ekosistem pantai, ekosistem hutan bakau, ekosistem padang rumput, ekosistem hutan hujan tropis, ekosistem air tawar, ekosistem air laut, ekosistem savanna, dan lain-lain. Masing-masing ekosistem ini memiliki keaneragaman hayati tersendiri.
Tumbuhan (flora) di Indonesia merupakan bagian dari geografi tumbuhan Indo-Malaya. Flora Indo-Malaya meliputi tumbuhan yang hidup di India, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Filipina. Flora yang tumbuh di Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Filipina sering disebut sebagai kelompok flora Malesiana.
Hutan di daerah flora Malesiana memiliki kurang lebih 248.000 species tumbuhan tinggi, didominasi oleh pohon dari familia Dipterocarpaceae, yaitu pohon-pohon yang menghasilkan biji bersayap. Dipterocarpaceae merupakan tumbuhan tertinggi dan membentuk kanopi hutan. Tumbuhan yang termasuk famili Dipterocarpaceae misalnya Keruing ( Dipterocarpus sp), Meranti (Shorea sp), Kayu garu (Gonystylus bancanus), dan Kayu kapur (Drybalanops aromatica).
Hutan di Indonesia merupakan bioma hutan hujan tropis atau hutan basah, dicirikan dengan kanopi yang rapat dan banyak tumbuhan liana (tumbuhan yang memanjat), seperti rotan. Tumbuhan khas Indonesia seperti durian (Durio zibetinus), Mangga (Mangifera indica), dan Sukun (Artocarpus sp) di Indonesia tersebar di Sumatra, Kalimantan, Jawa dan Sulawesi.
Sebagai negara yang memiliki flora Malesiana apakah di Malaysia dan Filipina juga memiliki jenis tumbuhan seperti yang dimiliki oleh Indonesia? Ya, di Malaysia dan Filipina juga terdapat tumbuhan durian, mangga, dan sukun. Di Sumatera, Kalimantan, dan Jawa terdapat tumbuhan endemik Rafflesia. Tumbuhan ini tumbuh di akar atau batang tumbuhan pemanjat sejenis anggur liar, yaitu Tetrastigma.

Bagaimana dengan wilayah Indonesia bagian timur? Apakah jenis tumbuhannya sama? Indonesia bagian timur, tipe hutannya agak berbeda. Mulai dari Sulawesi sampai Irian Jaya (Papua) terdapat hutan non?Dipterocarpaceae. Hutan ini memiliki pohon-pohon sedang, diantaranya beringin (Ficus sp), dan matoa (Pometia pinnata). Pohon matoa merupakan tumbuhan endemik di Irian.
Selanjutnya, mari kita lihat hewan (fauna) di Indonesia. Hewan-hewan di Indonesia memiliki tipe Oriental (Kawasan Barat Indonesia) dan Australia (Kawasan Timur Indonesia) serta peralihan. Hewan-hewan di bagian Barat Indonesia (Oriental) yang meliputi Sumatera, Jawa, dan Kalimantan, memiliki ciri-ciri sebagai berikut:
1. Banyak species mamalia yang berukuran besar, misalnya gajah, banteng, harimau, badak. Mamalia berkantung jumlahnya sedikit, bahkan hampir tidak ada.
2. Terdapat berbagai macam kera, misalnya: bekantan, tarsius, orang utan.
3. Terdapat hewan endemik, seperti: badak bercula satu, binturong (Aretictis binturang), monyet (Presbytis thomari), tarsius (Tarsius bancanus), kukang (Nyeticebus coucang).
4. Burung-burung memiliki warna bulu yang kurang menarik, tetapi dapat berkicau. Burung-burung yang endemik, misalnya: jalak bali (Leucopsar nothschili), elang jawa, murai mengkilat (Myophoneus melurunus), elang putih (Mycrohyerax latifrons).
Sekarang mari kita lanjutkan dengan hewan-hewan yang terdapat di Kawasan Indonesia Timur. Jenis-jenis hewan di Indonesia bagian timur, yaitu Irian, Maluku, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, relatif sama dengan Australia. Ciri-ciri hewannya adalah:
1. Mamalia berukuran kecil
2. Banyak hewan berkantung
3. Tidak terdapat species kera
4. Jenis-jenis burung memiliki warna yang beragam
Irian Jaya (Papua) memiliki hewan mamalia berkantung, misalnya: kanguru (Dendrolagus ursinus), kuskus (Spiloeus maculatus). Papua juga memiliki kolek si burung terbanyak, dan yang paling terkenal adalah burung Cenderawasih (Paradiseae sp). Di Nusa Tenggara, terutama di pulau Komodo, terdapat reptilian terbesar yaitu komodo (Varanus komodoensis).
Sedangkan daerah peralihan meliputi daerah di sekitar garis Wallace yang terbentang dari Sulawesi sampai kepulauan Maluku, jenis hewannya antara lain tarsius (Tarsius bancanus), maleo (Macrocephalon maleo), anoa, dan babi rusa (Babyrousa babyrussa).

          Serna resigns from Delta board / Trustee pleads no contest to charges she took double reimbursements   

By Alex Breitler
Record Staff Writer
December 09, 2008 6:00 AM

STOCKTON - Longtime San Joaquin Delta College Trustee Maria Elena Serna resigned from the board Monday moments before pleading no contest to a charge that she claimed reimbursement twice for several business trips dating back to 2005.

Serna's letter of resignation, which her attorney handed to board President Janet Rivera in the hallway at San Joaquin County Superior Court, cited Serna's health.

"On the advice of my physician, I can no longer fulfill my obligations with the college, and due to personal reasons, I will be having this resignation effective immediately," the 67-year-old Serna wrote. She declined further comment.

Past problems

Police reports say former San Joaquin Delta College Trustee Maria Elena Serna had past problems with travel expenses and reimbursements:
• An administrative assistant at Delta said Serna asked to be reimbursed for meals that President Raul Rodriguez had already paid for on a college credit card.
• The same assistant said Serna once became "belligerent" when she learned she would not be receiving a full travel allowance for a conference in San Jose, even after she was told the conference would be providing meals.
• When Rodriguez and Serna took a business trip to Washington, D.C., in February 2007, Rodriguez paid for a cab ride and a meal at a Brazilian restaurant; Rodriguez learned later that Serna tried to claim reimbursement on both.

Serna, a Delta trustee since 1990, was accused of claiming nearly $1,650 from both Delta College and the Community College League of California, which held conferences attended by Serna in San Francisco and Sacramento. The money has been paid back, prosecutors said.

"It's not the amount of the money. It's the audacity of the conduct," said Deputy District Attorney Stephen E. Taylor. "When people do that in public service, they have to leave."

Delta administrators noticed inconsistencies in Serna's reimbursement records and contacted prosecutors, who sent the case to Stockton police. A criminal complaint was filed Friday following a two-month investigation.

The case was set to go before a grand jury today before the last-second plea deal was arranged, attorneys said.

The single felony charge levied on Serna could have resulted in up to three years in state prison.

But Judge Richard J. Guiliani said the court viewed the case as a misdemeanor and sentenced Serna to three years' informal probation, requiring that she obey all laws.

Delta President Raul Rodriguez, who sat in the first row at Monday's arraignment, said the college has long struggled to help Serna understand how reimbursement works.

"It's a shame we've come to this," he said. "But a trustee should know better."

One example: According to an internal Delta College memo, Serna attended a meeting of the nonprofit college league June 20-21 in Sacramento. Delta College used a $179 credit card payment to reserve her room at the Hyatt Regency hotel; Serna wrote up her own reimbursement for the same amount and filed it with the league.

So she was paid by the league for an expense the college had already covered, the memo said.

Overall, the league reimbursed Serna $1,642 for expenses already covered by the college dating back to 2005, the report said. Serna signed reimbursement forms stating that no more money would come from any other source.

Serna's attorney, Albert Ellis, called this a "technical" violation of the law and said Serna's intent was not to defraud anyone.

"This is a horrible thing for someone to have to go through after so many years of distinguished service," he said. "This is the type of woman they're normally talking about naming schools after."

Serna, a retired Bear Creek High School social science teacher, had represented the Lodi area on the Delta board since 1990; she was the first Latino woman elected in San Joaquin County, according to a Delta College news release earlier this year.

She is also the sister of Joe Serna, who served as mayor of Sacramento from 1992 until his death in 1999.

Maria Serna was part of the board majority that favored building a south-county campus in Mountain House, a decision derided by new board members. She recently had back surgery and was not present for some key decisions about how trustees should divvy up a dwindling pool of bond money.

Her resignation means just two of the seven previous Delta trustees will be returning to the dais. Two others did not seek re-election in November, and the last two were ousted by challengers. Only Rivera and Ted Simas will remain on the board.

State law says Delta must either order an election or appoint someone to fill the vacancy. The organization of the new board will be discussed at a special meeting Wednesday night.

Prosecutor Taylor accused Serna of "felony conduct" and said the case was treated very seriously because Serna held public office.

Ellis, her attorney, questioned whether the case would have been filed at all had she been an ordinary citizen.

In a memo to the campus community Monday, Rodriguez said Serna's resignation and other recent negative news - such as allegations of overspending by student government - are "not random or accidental events" but are part of an ongoing effort to "correct longstanding problems, to ensure that we are abiding by laws and regulations, and to bring about necessary and positive change."

Said board President Rivera, after court: "We're cleaning house."

          Sitges 2013: una modesta guía de recomendaciones    

sitges 2013 ¡Blogdecineras y blogdecineros! ¿Cómo estáis? ¿Con qué frecuencia os indignáis al leer titulares que nos llenan de rabia y molestía? No pasa nada, porque lo creáis o no habrá una nueva edición del, tal vez, más popular festival que se celebra por estas tierras: el festival de Sitges, caracterizado por su amplia oferta de cine fantástico y terror y demás géneros afines, por su atención a las propuestas marcianas y bizarras y por su selección animada poco menos que exquisita.

En su 46a edición, si van ustedes a dar rienda suelta a los viajes y a visitar el concurridísimo (cada año, pese a la lamentable situación económica han tenido nuevos récords de aforo) evento aquí va esta modesta guía de recomendaciones de las propuestas con las que el festival dirigido por Ángel Sala promete, al menos, generar un buen puñado de discusiones y de esperanzas puestas en que las propuestas lleguen a ser distruibuidas en condiciones. Del 11 al 20 de Octubre aquí tenéis mi guía de los mejor del festival.

-The Zero Theorem (id, 2013)

Ya se vio en Donosti, pero la nueva película de Terry Gilliam, que protagoniza nada más y nada menos que Christoph Waltz promete un regreso por la distopía futurista con un mensaje (y una estética) absolutamente distintos a los de su emblemática 'Brazil' (id, 1984). Si esta no es una excelente noticia, qué puede serlo. Además, como siempre en este Gilliam tardío, es un proyecto insobornable e independiente.

Cuándo: El Día 11 (Auditori, 22:45) y el 12 (Retiro, 16:30)

-Upstream Color (id, 2013)

La nueva película de Shane Carruth. No sé si recordáis la enigmática (se podía entender, pero hacían falta tantas horas de pensamiento como guías de amables rumiadores que lo dejaban hecho online) 'Primer' (id, 2004) pero su segunda película ya está aquí y promete una experiencia estética al menos enrarecida.

Cuándo: 11 (Auditori, 14.30) y 12 (Retiro, 08.30)

-Blind Detective.

Para muchos de nosotros, Sitges es también un buen puñado de nombres que tienen que ver en el cine asiático. Jamás olvidaré descubrir la desconcertante y brutal 'Election' (id, 2005) hace ya unos cuantos añitos cuando yo no tenía más que diecisete años. Ese nombre no ha dejado de crecer y de hacer películas cada vez mejores. Aquí está la nueva película de Johnnie To, lo que significa cine negro y lo que significa un gran reparto de estrellas asiáticas, que ahora lidera Andy Lau.

Cuándo: Auditori (12, 14.30), Retiro (13, 08.30).

-Violet.

La nueva película del guionista Luiso Berdejo es una apuesta también de bajo presupuesto y con un argumento muy sugestivo que recuerda a un Antonioni para la epoca contemporánea. Un chico encuentra una polaroid de una mujer...y el misterio se desencadena. Pocos guionistas (y directores) con más potencial que este, así que va siendo hora de ver qué puede ofrecer con un proyecto que lleva toda su firma autoral.

Cuándo: 13 (Prado, 10.45 y 18.30)

-Il Deserto dei Tartari (1976)

Esta rarísima coproducción italo-franco-germánica adaptaba el clásico de Dino Buzzatti, una literatura fascinante y verdaderamente surreal, de primer nivel, y ha estado fuera de circulación el suficientemente tiempo como para celebrar que Sitges ofrezca una copia restaurada en pantalla grande y que la experiencia tenga garantías de ser novedosa e importante. Yo no me la perdería. Cuándo: 14 (Prado, 17.30)

-Gente en sitios (id, 2013)

El talentoso y brillante Juan Cavestany ha vuelto. Si 'El Señor' (id, 2012) o 'Dispongo de barcos' (id, 2012) no fueron para vosotros prueba de su talento extraño, novedoso y desconcertante, llega la nueva y última propuesta de esta nueva etapa en su filmografía, marcada por los bajos presupuestos y una libertad que ha conquistado sin aparente esfuerzo.

Cuándo: 15 (Prado, 12.30), 16 (Prado, 19.00)

-Much Ado About Nothing (id, 2013)

La adaptación de Joss Whedon de la obra maestra cómica de William Shakespeare. Si necesitas otra razón por la cual ir a ver esta película, en delicioso blanco y negro, con elegante dirección y al mejor guionista (je, je, je) de todos los tiempos, realmente nada hará que cambies de opinión. La película hay que verla.

Cuándo: 16 (Prado, 21:30)

-Faraday (id, 2013)

La nueva película de Norberto Ramos del Val promete, al menos, descolocar lo suficiente para merecer un buen vistazo. El caso es que esta especie de comedia-extraña-paranormal será una de las pocas oportunidades que ofrecerá el festival de estar ante un título de diversión bizarra que encaja a la perfección con la sensibilidad que propone.

Cuándo: 17 (Prado, 12:30), 18 (Prado, 01.30)

-Only lovers left alive (id, 2013)

Una película de vampiros dirigida por Jim Jarmusch. Si no hay nadie que no haya corrido ya a verla - uno de los cineastas más talentosos y brillantes de todo el cine norteamericano actual, el que más escapa a fáciles premios de la Academia y el más valiente de todos - os diré que en el reparto están Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston y Mia Wasikowska.

Cuándo: 17 (Auditori, 12.30 y 23.00) y 18 (Retiro, 21.00)

-Cheatin' (id, 2013).

Que Sitges ha sido siempre abandenarada de algunos de los más deliciosos y heterodoxos talentos de la animación mundial es obvio, y que ofrezca ahora un trabajo, el más reciente de todos, de Bill Plympton, un animador radical y absolutamente incómodo en la elección de sus temas, es una elección obligada para todos aquellos que quieran desafíos estéticos y morales en el cine animado.

Cuándo: 18 (Retiro, 16.15)

-The Wind Rises (id, 2013)

Otra que ya fue vista en Donosti, y que además tiene un componente altamente sentimental para Sitges: se trata de la película de despedida del maestro Hayao Miyazaki, una historia melancólica de aviación con la que abandona su habitual preferencia por mundos de fantasía y con la que propone una reflexión sobre la tecnología.

Cuándo: Auditori (19, 22.45)

          Take A Guess Which Of These Egg Yolks Is Actually From A Healthy Chicken   
One of the more interesting aspects of living in Brazil is the different approaches to food. We are connected to local farms from friends and family, spoiling us with organic homegrown everything. Regarding chicken eggs, the sizes vary, the colors of the shells vary but if the egg comes from the family farm, the yolk almost always a darker color. It is also thicker than the typical yellow yolk you find at the store.


In the United States all the eggs that can be bought at our local supermarket are yellow. Organic, vegetarian or cheap; they are all yellow and the yolk is not as thick. What is the reason for this? Could it be that myself and almost everyone I know has been eating eggs from unhealthy chickens? Have you ever even seen an orange egg? It took me 30 years to discover an egg from a healthy chicken. That’s crazy.

Having returned to the states, Craigslist is the go-to route to accommodate my urban life with homestead flare in search of the dankest foods.

From Garden Betty… Last year, I compared my pasture-foraging, insect-pecking, soil-scratching, whole grain-feeding chickens’ yolks to the yolks of both their “free-ranging” and factory-farmed counterparts. The differences are clearly visible: Yolks from my homegrown eggs were not only darker orange, but also fuller and thicker. Even the eggshells were denser and harder to crack. But what’s the big deal about orange yolks? Besides being a coveted color, orange yolks are an indication of a well balanced and highly nutritious diet. A few things factor into the making of an orange yolk: xanthophylls, omega-3 fatty acids, and meats. Xanthophylls are a class of carotenoids. Carotenoids are natural plant pigments found in many fruits and vegetables. It’s often thought that beta-carotene, one of the more well-known carotenoids, is responsible for giving yolks the orange pigment that people associate with carrots. But in actuality, beta-carotene benefits yolks nutritionally, rather than colorfully. The carotenoids that cause deeper yolk coloring are xanthophylls, which are more readily absorbed in the yolks. (Lutein is one such xanthophyll, and a lot of lutein means a lot more orange.) Xanthophylls are found in dark leafy greens like spinach, kale and collards, as well as in zucchini, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in flax seeds and sea kelp, which are both important components of my homemade whole grain chicken feed.

And did you know that chickens are not meant to be vegetarian, no matter what your premium carton of organic/grain-fed/cage-free eggs tells you? Chickens are omnivores by nature and their healthiest diets include meats, such as mealworms, beetles, grasshoppers, grubs, and whatever creepy-crawly they can pull out of the ground. I’ve even heard of chickens (those ballsy ones out in the boonies) attacking small rodents and snakes!

When you have all of these sources incorporated into a hen’s healthful diet, the nutrients they consume are passed on to their eggs and concentrated in their yolks. According to Mother Earth News, which conducted its own egg analysis, and a more recent Pennsylvania State University study, pastured eggs contain higher levels of vitamins A, D and E; more beta-carotene; and more omega-3s.

All this means is that a pastured egg is better for you. And that’s one of the reasons we raise chickens, right?

So, how do we get those delightful dark orange yolks from our backyard chickens?


Let your ladies roam a pasture (or a garden — especially if you’re digging over new beds — or even just a new patch of dirt in their chicken tractor) for an orange-boosting bug buffet.

Give them plenty of fresh greens to increase the lutein in their yolks. The darker the green the better, so I often fix them a feast of edible amaranth (one of my favorite summer greens), kale, collards, broccoli leaves, or whatever I happen to have growing in my garden. If it’s the middle of winter and your garden greens are lacking, you can feed them alfalfa.

They’re very handy helpers at the end of the season when most of my greens have bolted and become bug-ridden. Let the chickens clean up those plants before you pull them out for your compost pile. It’s a win for everybody! (Except the bugs, that is…)

(As an aside, don’t be fooled by the cheater method that egg factories take, and simply feed your chickens more corn. While corn can give your yolks that nice golden color, it has little nutritional value.)

After a few weeks, you’ll be so used to seeing orange yolks (the way most of us have been conditioned to see yellow yolks) that you might even think they haven’t changed in color. Buy some eggs from the store and crack them into a bowl with your homegrown eggs — you’ll be stunned at the difference!

Those are some interesting observations by Garden Betty. Here is a bit more of an explanation by food and nutrition.

WATCH THE VIDEO:

When it comes to yolks, the color is determined by a hen’s diet, not its breed (artificial color additives are not permitted in eggs) or the freshness of the egg. Hen diets heavy in green plants, yellow corn, alfalfa and other plant material with xanthophylls pigment (a yellow-orange hue) will produce a darker yellow-orange yolk. Diets of wheat or barley produce pale yellow yolks; hens fed white cornmeal produce almost colorless yolks.

Free-range hens may have access to more heavily pigmented food so they may produce eggs with darker yolks. According to the American Egg Board, consumer preference in the U.S. is typically for light gold- or lemon-colored yolks.

At the end of the day, know your farmer and the diet of the chickens producing the eggs to be eaten.

          U.S. Exporters Poised to Capitalize on Global Demand for Smart Grid Products and Services   
Led by the Departments of Commerce and Energy, U.S. government agencies are helping American clean energy companies export their renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies to foreign markets.

The following is a cross-post from Tradeology, the official blog of the International Trade Administration

By Vickie Gunderson, Smart Grid Analyst

The average number of Internet-connected devices per household is expected to increase five-fold by 2022, leading to potentially over 50 billion connected devices by 2025.  As more devices are connected to the Internet– in our homes, offices, and manufacturing facilities – it is becoming increasing more critical that people have access to reliable, secure, affordable, and clean electricity to power them.  And U.S. firms that provide the products and services to meet these grid modernization needs are seeing increased global interest.

Earlier this year, we released an Update to the 2016 Smart Grid Top Markets Report. These articles offer detailed analysis of the near-term growth potential for U.S. exporters of smart grid products and services overall and for three sub-sectors:  transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment, smart grid information communications technologies (ICT), and energy storage.  The Update expanded the number of ranked international markets for U.S. exporters from 34 to 50 markets and ranks them according to opportunities.

Across the suite of sub-sectors, U.S. exporters remain global leaders. Deployment of these advanced technologies across the United States to modernize our grid is serving as a global test bed for these disruptive technologies. Nowhere is this more apparent than for energy storage systems.

Today, the United States is one of the global leaders in deployment of energy storage with more than 200 battery projects totally over 400 MW added to the system and remains the world leader for testing innovative policy, regulatory, and business models. However, projects are being deployed across the globe with global deployment of energy storage expected to increase seven fold over the next five years.  This presents a key export opportunity for U.S. manufacturers and service providers.

Over the last eight years, the costs of grid-scale battery energy storage has decreased ten fold. These types of cost reductions are driving the deployment of a wide range of energy storage systems in the United States and around the globe and enabling electric utilities to store electrons (electricity) to provide power when it is needed and help steady the 24/7 need to balance the generation and the demand for electricity.

As a result, the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (TPCC-REEE), and the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Energy are leading an interagency effort to enhance services and programs to support U.S. competiveness in a range of sub-sectors across this diverse industry – including for energy storage.

In the  2016 Smart Grid Top Markets report, the Department of Commerce included dedicated analysis on energy storage to increase market intelligence for U.S. exporters, and our January 2017 Update included the first sub-sector rankings for energy storage exporters. Additionally, at DistribuTECH 2017, under the International Buyer Program, the Department of Commerce led delegations totaling more than 400 foreign buyers to facilitate meetings with U.S. energy storage and smart grid companies, as well as interact with U.S. utilities who have successfully deployed these products domestically.

Further recognizing the link between technology deployment and regulatory barriers, we have engaged in a series of market-specific activities. At the third U.S.-India Smart Grid Workshop in New Delhi,I participated in public-private discussions on the challenges to smart grid technology deployment in India. We also held discussions on communications networks for electric utilities in Brazil under our partnership with the Utilities Technologies Council through our Market Development Cooperator Program, and later this year (October 31-November 2), we will be leading a delegation of U.S. firms to Toronto and Calgary for the Renewable Energy Integration Trade Mission.

And this is just the beginning! Stay tuned for upcoming events related to global smart grid opportunities, and a full update to the Smart Grid Top Market Report later this fall. Sign up for our Global Energy Team newsletter to stay in the know!


          Shameless Self Promotion   

I was just informed that the panel on which I was invited to present has been accepted for the Society for Pyschological Anthropology Biennial Meeting. The panel is organized by Jonathan Marion and is titled, "Re-Embodying Identity." Here is the panel abstract:


    Re-Embodying Identity


    Working out of a variety of approaches and models, this panel is geared towards exploring and understanding the interactivity of body and identity. While a number of scholars have started to look to the body as a site of culture, the interconnection of body and identity still remains largely under appreciated. Building off the idea that practice and activity can be valuable sites for anthropological inquiry, this panel focuses on and interrogates the significance of bodily experiences and conceptualizations to understanding the constructions of both personal and collective meanings and identities.


    This panel’s use of the term re-embodiment is not to suggest that people are somehow otherwise not embodied, disembodied, or alienated from their bodies. All physical practices, such as sitting at the computer, are, of course, embodied, as, ultimately, are all thoughts about such activities. Similarly, it would be inaccurate to assume that someone at their computer feels some sense of bodily alienation; i.e. as if somehow their body is not their’s. That people typically take little notice of their bodies (on a day-to-day basis) save when something goes wrong does not mean, however, that bodily experience and perception otherwise cease to be significant in constructions and understandings of personal and collective identities; and it is against this backdrop that this panel engages with re-embodiment, wherein and whereby awareness of and attention to the body can be re-engaged. Borrowing from different traditions across the social sciences, the papers on this panel—dealing with modern body piercing, Brazilian squatting, Polish Evangelicals, competitive ballroom dance, and embodied conflict—each explore some practices and beliefs wherein and whereby personal and collective identities are re-embodied. Rather than answering any questions, this panel is intended as a step in theorizing, conducting research on, and then re-theorizing the significance of re-embodying identity.

    Body Piercing and the Re-Embodiment of Commodity-Based Identity


    Commodity-based identity is a significant part of today's consumer culture society. Some scholars view this reliance on commodities as limiting the power of the individual. However, this study focuses on the activity of body piercing to argue that individuals exercise authority as they utilize commodities to create bodily-centered identity. In the community of college-age individuals, body piercing has emerged as an important commodity used to express personal and communal identity. This project draws upon first-hand ethnographic research and existing theoretical analysis in Anthropology and other Social Science disciplines to argue that body piercing represents the re-embodiment of commodity-based identity.


    In this study, the practice of body piercing in the college-age community is analyzed in relation to traditional rites of passage with which it shares undeniable similarities. When children become distanced from their parents, as in the case of 'going away to college,' they enter a new stage in life; they may then undergo a crisis of identity when the structure on which they based their identity, their family unit, is replaced by a community of their peers. This crisis often occurs in conjunction with the crisis of bodily detachment which arises in part from the practice of commodity-based identity. However, in this case, body piercing as a form of commodity-based identity intercedes as a way to reconcile these crises of identity and claim, or reclaim, bodily-centered identity through the activity of body piercing.

    Embodied Identity and Political Action:


    Lessons from the Participatory Budget in Brazil


    A focus on identity in activity is fundamental to understanding how squatters’ perceptions of their social positioning shifts based on the new set of social relations that emerged with the implementation of the Participatory Budget, a municipal mechanism of resource allocation. The evidence comes from fieldwork conducted in Porto Alegre during January and February of 2005 for my master’s thesis in Urban Planning. When squatters perceived that their social positioning changed under the local social relations of power, they also changed their actions by advocating for their rights. The leftist progressive pioneers of the Participatory Budget envisioned political participation in terms of citizen’s rights, independent of land tenure status. Nonetheless, outside of this particular political narrative, legal title is an important index of citizenship rights. Lawful tenants, incapable of preventing squatters from placing their demands through the Participatory Budget, began to treat squatters as political brokers between themselves and the city administration. The meaning of political participation changed from a political right, as initially envisioned by the framers of the Participatory Budget, to a political responsibility of the squatters. I use the theoretical framework established by D. Holland, D. Skinner, W. Lachicotte, and C. Cain in Identity and Agency in Cultural Worlds in order to understand this dialectical relationship between narrative/figured worlds and positional identities. Even though embodied political identity is mostly unconscious, the index of legal title becomes a conscious aspect of squatters’ positional identity. In the figured world of the Participatory Budget, this change in squatters’ positional identity enables them to refuse to act as political brokers for the lawful tenants.

    The Body’s Religious Sentiments:


    Identity and Bodily Practice Among Polish Evangelicals


    This paper examines the relationship between identity and the body in an evangelical community in Poland. Drawing on two years of field research in a Polish Baptist community, I suggest that communal ideas about what the body is, what it does, and what it should do, are central to communal and individual religious identity. In exploring these models of the body, I argue that it is the body’s perceived objectivity and transparency—its capacity to give inner states a physical form—which explains the import that ascetic practices carry in the community. A żywa wiara (living faith) is viewed within the community as irrepressible; real emotions, states, and qualities are made visible by the body and through bodily practice; piety, honesty, humility and obedience are thus embodied. I posit that such beliefs about the body are important due to the general suspicion of speech and sentiment present in the community. Statements of faith, claims of religious feeling, and internal spiritual experience are treated with a measure of distrust by the community, as if lacking the objective grounding the body is seen to provide. I explore how the privileging of the body as a source of objective knowledge about faith and sentiments has significant consequences for identity formation within the community. For example, in the development of ideas about proper Baptist bodily practice, in the necessity of communal evaluation of each believer’s body, and in the manner that evaluative models become motivating for individuals.

    Being Ballroom:


    Some Observations on the Re-embodying of Identity in Ballroom Dance


    This paper explores some of the dynamics of ballroom dance that allow for and facilitate the re-embodying of practitioners identities. Just as the body is inescapably implicated in human culture and knowledge, the converse is also true. While never separate from physical bodies, views of the body are always contextually construed, inevitably arising in the dialogue between the physicality of bodies and the values and understandings—both personal and cultural—by and through which those bodies are attended. Physical mannerisms, practices, and proxemics (e.g. Levy 1973, Bourdieu 1977, and Hall 1988 respectively) are integral elements of sociocultural discourse, as are the conceptualizations that are formulated out of and in response to these discourses. Uses and understandings of the body thus emerge as never being only natural and, as such, any robust understanding of humans cannot ignore the psychophysicality of human experience and conceptuality.


    Like other physical pastimes, ballroom dance allows people to consciously reconnect with their physicality. But dance and other expressive movement styles often go further, allowing people to experience, experiment with, and use their bodies in non-instrumental manners. This paper thus explores some of the dynamics whereby and wherein persons not only come to be aware of their bodies in and through ballroom dance but, specifically, of their bodies in interaction with others. And, as this paper will argue, while any type of physicality may help, partnered dance forms are especially efficacious in facilitating the very re-embodiment that modern modes of work, transportation, leisure, and home life may make all the harder—and thus all the more valuable—to attain.

Becoming Palladin:

Embodied Narratives, Conflicts, and Identities


The themes in this paper derive from the view that we develop meanings and values through embodied interaction with the cultural worlds to which we belong. Patterns of movement, gesture, feeling, expression, and thought are all embodied, and the development of these embodied patterns occurs in communities of participation. Because bodily identities symbolize aspects of our participation, it becomes important to look at them clinically.

Developmentally, we imitate, practice, and improvise with other people's gestures and movements and excitatory expressions, both in and out of the family of origin. We are, moreover, influenced by a broad range of media and multicultural images. These practices are automated and become part of one's identity either as whole set pieces or as partial incorporations. We live various bodies as we go through our daily worlds, both consciously and unconsciously, and these enactments may be in conflict or harmony with each other.

In this paper patterns of imitation will be looked at as means to the individuals embodied identity. Psychological conflict will be seen as the conflict between embodied enactments that symbolize and evoke particular cultural and familial values and meanings. Implications for psychotherapy will be discussed.

She sat down with UNESCO to give an overview of the role civil society plays in the new global education architecture and the challenges ahead.

Education 2030 calls for the involvement of all stakeholders in the planning, implementation and monitoring of education policies and strategies. How can civil society strengthen good governance in education?

Advocating for democratic governance in education is a core priority for civil society. Although there seems to be a consensus that Civil Society Organizations’ (CSO) active participation- including that of teacher and student-led organizations- in debate, policy-making and monitoring is of fundamental importance, in practice this is still far from a reality. While we can observe progress at the international, and to some extent regional level, it is at the national level that progress most lags behind, with teachers and students’ organizations more often than not lacking space to express their opinions.

The Education 2030 Framework for Action  encourages governments to ensure the existence of institutionalized spaces and processes for education policy dialogue, decision-making and monitoring. This ensures that legal and policy frameworks, as well as practices reflect the overall orientation of the people, of collective actors and different education stakeholders. 

You are very involved at the global and UN level. How do you think civil society can influence the implementation of SDG4 at this level. In your view, what role can civil society play regarding holding stakeholders accountable at global level?

CSOs must participate actively in the global spaces that are in place, but always be sure that this action is rooted at the national level. Their role should be to both take national perspectives to the global level but also to take the global perspectives to the national level to follow up on commitments and recommendations. This constant flux between the different levels leverages CSO actions and impacts. In this sense, they must seek to engage in the development of national voluntary reports, or carry out ‘spotlight’ reports that shed light onto crucial issues for example.

At the global level, important Sustainable Development Goals follow-up and accountability mechanisms have been established that allow for State monitoring implementation of the whole SDGs set. Regarding SDG4 in particular, we have the architecture revolving around the Education 2030 Framework for Action, composed of a Steering Committee, in which civil society has permanent representation, Global Education Meetings and a Global Education Monitoring Report to keep track of progress, identify bottlenecks and tackle them. Very recently, an Education and Academia Stakeholder Group (EASG) has been established, which allows education CSOs and academia, to engage in these follow-up and monitoring processes.

Also, CSOs  should advocate for an increased effort to establish inter-sectorial dialogue in the coming years. Inter-sectorial dialogue is of crucial importance because there are issues in the 2030 Agenda that crosscut the different sectors and which must be tackled collectively.

Financing is one of the major issue regarding education. How can civil society ensure that financial resources are being used efficiently and equitably and reaching the most vulnerable populations and the least developed countries?

Resources to education should be constitutionally protected and earmarked, with countries committing towards allocating at least 6% of GDP to education and ensuring that levels are maintained even during moments of crisis.

In poorer countries, and in countries that still face significant challenges in access, quality and equity, an even greater sum may be necessary, as studies in Brazil and El Salvador have shown.

CSOs play an important role not only in advocating for appropriate levels of education investment, be it at the executive or the legislative spheres, but also in promoting debate, information-sharing, awareness-raising and capacity-building among citizens. This includes action around the entire budgetary cycle, from its definition, to its approval and execution.  Financial data must be made publicly available in a transparent and timely manner to inform debates and decision-making processes. This is critical for ensuring budgets promote equity and reach the most excluded groups. . Hand in hand with advocating towards increased levels of domestic financing for education, CSOs must engage with tax justice networks and campaigns, working in alliance and within an inter-sectorial perspective.

At the global level, CSOs must engage more in pushing for global taxation mechanisms and bodies, as has been previously attempted during the Financing for Development Conference and during the 2016 Global Action Week for Education, as a key mechanism for SDG financing.

Education is an enabling right, promoter of social, economic, human, and environmental development. It is critical for social cohesion and resilience.

The Global Campaign for Education is a civil society movement created in 1999. It is comprised of a huge variety of national, regional and international civil society organizations, teachers’ unions and child rights campaigners that aim to end the global education crisis. It is one of civil society representatives to the SDG – Education 2030 Steering Committee.

The civil society movement is a member of the Global SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee, which convened on 29-30 June 2017 in New York. 


          Buratai: Decoding the True African General   
By: Karen Goulding

Africa suffers artificial drought of hardcore and outstanding professionals in every field. This plaque has become more visible with Africans joyful acceptance of the neo-colonial erroneous, biased and destructive verdict of Africa as a continent of failures.
 
And each time, these alien forces descend their imperial knives on the precious skins of Africans and Africa, it deposits far-reaching consequences. Africans exceptionally gifted are held back in giving out their best. They suffer a psychological inhibition based on these polluted verdicts imposed on people of the continent.

But Africans are equally and competitively, very intelligent like the white-skinned people. How Africans prefer to celebrate their foolery, instead of positive assertion of themselves is really a riddle. Nonetheless, as time ebbs, more courageous Africans have overcome these mental barriers and are steeping out to prove to the whole world the real substance or worth of an African.

No one can deny brilliance and intelligence of African people in every chosen field of human specialization. Nigerians in particular have carved a niche for themselves in their preferred careers. They are celebrities in academics’, science and indeed, in all professions.

As the largest black nation on earth, the conspiracy of foreign nations against Nigeria is really subject of a whole thesis. The blackmail of compelling the people to think more in failure and destruction, than progress has impinged on the psyche of Nigerians retardation. It has gone to sublime levels that optimal exhibition of skills is most times impeded in some people because of this belittlement.

As determined as ever, Nigerians are gradually breaking these barriers to demonstrate their excellence to the world. That’s why Nigerians are usually elated, anytime a Nigerian displays uncommon exploits or accomplishments in his career, especially in exceptional professions.
 
It explains why Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusufu Buratai’s embodiment of professionalism, perfection, discipline and courage in the war against terrorism excites the people. Upon leading the counter-insurgency war that humbled Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs), Nigerians feted him with celebrations and Africa picked it up and expanded it. Today, Gen. Buratai is celebrated around the world, as an exceptional professional soldier of high esteem

To many, the Nigerian Army Chief is indescribable. Also, a peep into his persona does not provide easy insights either. What is however certain is that his personage undulates with unrivalled zeal for exceptional exploits and successes. He has an extremely infectious aura.

But what has worked more for this African Army General is his flair for professionalism, discipline, uprightness in leadership, selflessness, courage, transparency, principle of inclusiveness and hard work. And all these have been seared in the passion for positive results in all endeavors; which have made him a worthy assert to Nigeria, Africa and the world. Beyond flattery, Gen. Buratai is admittedly a special specie of humanity. By the dictates of his profession, he ought to be tough  and rugged; but to the contrary, he is amiable and humane in dealing with fellow men. It’s scarce to find such qualities and virtues buried in a single soul in the military, particularly in Nigeria.

Africans have seen Gen. Buratai as both a leader and soldier in the trenches, much as in the administrative boardroom of his vocation, bearing all risks, good or bad.  He does not chase shadows and nothing distracts his focus and concentration.

True to his type, Gen. Buratai personifies the Christ-like motif of troops under his command. He positions himself to feel their pains, sufferings, agonies; the heat in the trenches, the dejections and the defeats. He is not bossy, so shares the victories and joys of his troops in the same measure the least among troops would feel. It’s not unusual to see him spend Sallah or Christmas celebrations with troops in the battlefield, where he personally lights the candle of bonfire carnivals. This is a mark of leadership, very scarce nowadays.

Understanding the strength behind the modus operendi of Gen. Buratai has proven to be no easy path to walk. But suffice it to say, in achieving efficiency and effectiveness on targets, the COAS utilizes his unique talents  to create the needed impact. He is feted in Africa and beyond because Gen. Buratai extensively tapped and improvised on the wisdom, vision and intellectual prowess of men or globally acclaimed war veterans, upon his appointment as the ombudsman of the counter-insurgency war in Nigeria.

It gave birth to the reforms and innovations Buratai brought to bear on the Nigerian Army. Suddenly, Nigerian soldiers’ adjudged as weaklings, who could shamelessly bid an effeminate retreat in the battlefield became courageously, gallant soldiers to confront terrorists and defeat them.
Therefore, having prepared his house, this Soldier-General courageously broke new grounds and unimaginable records in terrorism warfare. It has continued to draw the inspiration of the world to his convictions, tactics and strategies.
As earlier hinted, there is no iota of doubt that Gen. Buratai must have drawn inspiration from great men, such as the famous English novelist, Ernest Hemmingway, author of the popular, “Old Man And The Sea.” Author Hemmingway timelessly asserted that “Once we have a war, there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat, brings worse things, than any that can ever happen in war.”

For this Nigerian Army Chief, the wise counsel of this author was his conviction and guiding principle. It compelled him to face the lethal Boko Haram terrorism war in Nigeria without flinching. He feared more the consequences of defeat, than the difficulties of surmounting the hurdles, some deliberate, on the battlefield to ensure victory.

And the wisdom, tactics and strategies of Chinese war veteran and father of the Chinese revolution, Mao Tse Tung was also of immense assistance to him, as leader of the counter-insurgency campaigns in Nigeria.  Mao Tse believed thus;
“Imaginative, intelligent, and bold leadership is absolutely essential.

 Commanders and leaders at every echelon must be selected with these specific qualities in mind. Officers and NCOs who are more than competent under normal conditions will frequently be hopelessly ineffective when confronted with dynamic and totally different situations.”

The unfaltering Nigerian Army Chief and Commander of the anti-terrorism war in Nigeria imbibed enough of these virtues and effectively applied them.  So, he risked advance on enemy troops, where his predecessors dreaded; he trailed insurgents and their agents, dynamically in tactics, from battlefield encounters to cyberspace terrorism manifestations and matched action for action.

He suffocated enemy forces' sources of food and ammunition supply.   He endured and ignored all manner of distractions back home to focus on his assignment to earn the victory today savoured by the whole world.

And in all instances, he moved centuries in thinking, ahead of the localized thoughts and strategies of enemy forces- the Boko Haramists. This Army General slept once in two weeks, always awake to strategize and personally supervise field operations. He left nothing to chance; while terrorists slept every day in their hideouts with the delusion of courage and invincibility.

So, he conquered them and their agents in the trenches, caves, cyberspace propaganda and everywhere. They scattered in confused directions, as his troops chased them to the point of conquer or surrender.
 
After the defeat of Boko Haram terrorists, the Nigerian Army Chief also deployed the wisdom of Mao Tse in cleansing communities in  Northeast, Nigeria of remnants’ of Boko Haram terrorists. He commanded his troops to embark on “Operation Crackdown.” Mao Tse’s thoughts in this direction were that;
“After the enemies with guns have been wiped out, there will still be enemies without guns; they are bound to struggle desperately against us, and we must never regard these enemies lightly. If we do, nor now raise and understand the problem in this way, we shall commit the gravest mistakes.”

Today, Nigeria has regained her freedom. The world stands up in stupefying relish of Buratai’s exploits and victories over terrorism warfare in Nigeria within the shortest possible time.

This Nigerian Army General perceived defeat in the eyes of troops, but meticulously inspired them into self-confidence, greatness and victory;  he triumphed over their disunity and inclination  for  mutiny and made them converts  of the new order of professionalism,  discipline, comradeship  and pursuit of the common agenda of defeat of enemy forces against Nigeria.

No doubt, Gen. Buratai strikes as an angel to civilians in his operational jurisdictions; but a very venomous snake to enemies of state. For Nigerians and millions of Africans, this Army Chief is simply one of the best Africans in recent times. This is attested or gleaned from the flurry of unsolicited awards and recognitions showered on him across the globe in the last few months. The Republic of Brazil recently feted and decorated him with the country’s highest military honour in global recognition of his battle against terrorism in Nigeria and the world.

Thus, Gen. Buratai can be described as a gentlemen soldier, a great soldier of repute, a hero of international dimensions, the conqueror of terrorists in Nigeria and environs.   He has replicated history in Nigeria and the world, by religiously deploying and improvising on the military wisdom of those before him to attain the unimaginable victories in war against terrorism.

Consequently, the world is prodded to utilize his wealth of wisdom to surmount the global monster of terrorism. This would be a step palpably illustrative of the global agenda on collective action against terrorism, a reality now, than yesterday and likely tomorrow. But if treasured masters of the game, like Buratai are factored into this global collaborative action against terrorism, the world may likely experience respite.

Ngày 29/06/2017, chính quyền Brazil, đã mở một chiến dịch chống ma túy trên quy mô lớn tại bang Rio de Janeiro, và nhắm vào gần một trăm cảnh sát bị nghi ngờ tham nhũng.
Theo thông cáo của chính quyền địa phương, được AFP trích dẫn, thì tổng cộng có 185 người bị truy nã, trong số này có 95 cảnh sát vũ trang. Truyền thông Brazil cho hay chiến dịch truy lùng chống khủng bố lớn nhất trong lịch sử nước này có mục tiêu phá dỡ một mạng lưới tham nhũng bên trong lực lượng cảnh sát ở Rio, có quan hệ với những kẻ buôn lậu ma túy. Còn theo website thông tin G1, nhóm cảnh sát tham nhũng này mỗi tháng nhận được một triệu real, tương đương 300 ngàn đô la từ các băng đảng buôn ma túy. Các cảnh sát tham nhũng bị nghi ngờ nhận tiền để bảo kê các tổ chức buôn ma túy và thậm chí cho thuê vũ khí. RFI

                                 HVALA leto 2013


In že je tu leto 2014. Leto iskrenih povezovanj in videnja dobrega v drugih. Naj vas navdahne in napolni z energijo svetlobe, ki vedno znova prebije temo in v nas prebuja najžlahtnejše dimenzije.

Morda vas poveže ponovno tudi z nami v mrežo ustvarjalnega zanosa, ki v prostoru oblikuje novo vrednost in krepi nasmeh.  Lepo je sobivati z vami, čutiti vašo prisotnost, vaše navdihe in se učiti od vaših dejanj; lepo je prepletati in manifestirati z vami vse kar čutimo, vidimo, vemo, v konkretne rezultate, ki odgovarjajo na konkretne izzive.


“Črta se umika krogu, planiranje modeliranju, oddelki miselnim ustrojem, vrednostne verige prepletenim vrednostnim mrežam; človek prepoznava višji smisel življenja in z ljubeznijo sprejema raznolikost, lepoto,  naravne ritme, samega sebe.”


Na krilih modrosti, globine in radosti bomo leto zaužili z vsako celico naše biti. Naj bo dober partner tudi vam!


                               DOBRODOŠLO LETO 2014!

              Priložnosti inovativne EU - sporočila iz Litve 2013   
    Globalno gibanje in spirala sistemskega razmišljanja se vrti naprej: Slovenija, Portugalska, Avstrija, Črna gora, Nizozemska, Vietnam, Tajvan, Brazilija in na koncu še Litva. Zanimivo je biti spet dejaven pri razpravah o EU prihodnosti. Še posebej, ko je človek že vse leto izpostavljen različnim globalnim pogledom (na svetovnih konferencah, sestankih in projektih). Je mogoče zaznati kakšne razlike? Je. EU je povsem ujeta v administrativno razmišljanje z vrha navzdol. To je toliko bolj vidno, ko med vsemi poskušamo najti zmagoviti pristop na področju inovacije.

    Srečanje v Vilniusu je v meni potrdilo občutek, da še vedno verjamemo in smo ujeti v prepričanje, da je mogoče dvig inovacijske kulture v EU doseči samo od zgoraj navzdol; inovacijo je na podlagi tega prepričanja mogoče izpeljati samo preko v naprej opredeljenih pravil od zgoraj navzdol, čeprav pragmatične izkušnje dokazujejo, da se morajo, če naj bi res dosegli trajnejše rešitve, potrebe z vrha nujno srečati s potrebami od dna. Cvetoči projekti dokazujejo, da moramo stremeti po učinkovitem prepletu obeh pristopov, ki temelji na dodobro premišljeni filozofiji mreženja. Še vedno vsa svoja pričakovanja polagamo v raziskave in razvoj (R&R) ter patente s tega področja, čeprav je jasno, da inovacije pomenijo precej več: tudi odkrivanje, medstrukturno sodelovanje (kulturno, industrijsko, panožno, regionalno, in tako dalje), nepredvidljivost, še posebej na področju manjših in srednje velikih podjetij (MSP), za katera se zdi, da veliko obetajo pri obnovi EU ekonomije. Navkljub temu poskušamo MSP stlačiti v miselni okvir velikih korporacij – namreč, z jasnim sporočilom, da bo EU podprla samo tista MSP, ki sodelujejo z R&R inštitucijami. Hkrati pa na ravni neposrednega dogajanja vidimo, da se vedno več inovacij poraja v odprtih inovativnih krogih. Vedno več MSP se odpoveduje patentom in raje deskajo po valovih  „biti prvi na trgu“. Temu v veliki meri botrujejo hitrost sprememb, pojavljanje priložnosti in pomanjkanje sredstev za patente. To je zaznala celo administracija. Poglejmo si ključna sporočila.

    I. Horizon 2020 program se je začel decembra 2013!

    Slovenija, si pripravljena? Program je nadaljevanje prejšnjih programov za področje inovacij. Vsi, ki niso sledili indicem v preteklosti, bodo obtičali globoko v blatu bank glavne reke. Ukrepati moramo! Poglejte, kaj prihaja!

    Novi program EU za raziskovanje in inovacije za obdobje med 2014 – 2020 razpolaga z 79 milijardami Eurov za inovacijski preboj. EU se z njegovo pomočjo poskuša izogniti nekaterim oviram iz preteklosti, namreč tako, da

    •    se neposredno odziva na ekonomsko stanje;
    •    z integriranim programom povezuje inovacije in razvoj;
    •    nagovarja osnovne teme (čista energija, zdravstvo, transport);
    •    se močno posveča MSP (20%!);
    •    se odpira v svet (sodelovanje z drugimi celinami je dobrodošlo);
    •    vpeljuje veliko poenostavljanja (sistemov, zaupanja, manj poročil).

    Neposredno naslavlja 3 glavna področja:
    •    ODLIČNOST v ZNANOSTI (meje, novi pojavi, delovne priložnosti, infrastruktura) – za individualne raziskovalce.
    •    USMERJANJE INDUSTRIJE (nanotehnologoije, biotehnologije, IKT /informacije, komunikacija, tehnologija/ – namenjene industriji).
    •    DRUŽBENI IZZIVI  - skupnosti, temeljni družbeni izzivi.

    Program se bo prvenstveno osredotočil na:
    •    MSP: projekti sodelovanja, novi MSP instrumenti, poenostavljanje, skupni Eurostar programi, ukrepi, ki podpirajo inovacije v MSP.
    •    Internacionalizacija, vzpodbude za sodelovanje zunaj EU – z Indijo, Brazilijo, Kitajsko, Norveško, Švico.
    •    INDUSTRIJA: inovativne pobude v medicini, čisto nebo (Clean Sky), pogonske vodikove celice, bio-osnovane industrije, elektronske komponente in sistemi.
    •    DRUŽBENI IZZIVI: meteorološke raziskave, Eurostar, dejavno življenje in življenje ob pomoči.

    Zahtevali bodo naslednje poenostavitve:
    •    en sam sklop pravil;
    •    krajši čas za podeljevanje odobritev in dovoljenj;
    •    manjše število, toda bolje usmerjeno nadzorovanje in pregledovanje računov;
    •    povezano izvrševanje;
    •    poenostavitev pogodb za subvencije.

    II. Regionalni razvoj je pomemben, treba ga je scela podpreti

    Videli smo veliko dobrih, čeprav nekaj tudi ne tako dobrih predstavitev o tem, kako bi bilo mogoče doseči in ovrednotiti regionalni razvoj, vključno z inovacijami. Dejstvo je, da bodo inovacije postale pomemben dejavnik pri regionalnem razvoju. Skrbi me, da tisti, ki so zadolženi za mehanizme vrednotenja (vodilni partnerji), sami nikoli niso bili vključeni niti nimajo izkušenj z regionalnim razvojem inovacij. Pri ovrednotenju regionalne inovacijske ravni poskušajo uporabiti stare industrijske inovacijske modele, ki vključujejo patente, delovna mesta in industrijske statistične modele. Popolnoma absurdno in nikakor ne ustrezno. Upam, da so pripombe in pogledi, ki so jih ljudje iz neposredne prakse posredovali tistim, ki odločajo, ponudili dovolj snovi za razmišljanje, da bodo začutili in dojeli posebnosti in možnosti regionalnega inovacijskega razvoja, in bodo oblikovali stvarnejše in koristnejše predloge.

    III. IZJAVA VILNIJUŠKEGA FORUMA O INOVACIJAH

    Glavna načela za oblikovanje Evropske inovacijske politike

    Sprejeta na Vilnijuškem inovacijskem forumu „Tok inovacij“ od 4. do 6. decembra 2013

    Udeleženci prvega Vilnujuškega inovacijskega foruma 2013 „Tok inovacij“ so se strinjali in oblikovali naslednjo deklaracijo „Glavna načela za oblikovanje Evropske inovacijske politike“, ki, zapisana spodaj,
    •    poudarja pomen nadaljnjega povečevanja vlaganja držav članic v raziskovanje in inovacije…
    •    poudarja, da morajo članice EU nadaljevati s skupnimi napori pri oblikovanju vzajemnega Evropskega inovacijskega ekosistema, in kot prvo in najpomembnejše ugotavlja, da lahko združene in usklajene Evropske, regionalne in lokalne inovacijske politike in ustrezno R&R financiranje plodno doprinesejo k trajnostnem evropskem razvoju in konkurenčnosti...
    •    poudarja pomen sodelovanja med članicami EU, še posebej pri krepitvi sinergij med različnimi regionalnimi, nacionalnimi in EU področji raziskovalnih in inovacijskih politik...
    •    vzpodbuja uveljavljanje podjetništva, ki ustanavlja inovativna „start-up“ in „spinoff“ podjetja v evropskih državah; prav tako vidi v MSP pomemben dejavnik ekonomske rasti v prihodnosti...
    •    prepoznava nujnost, da se tudi v okviru programa Horizon 2020 nadaljuje s podpiranjem javno-zasebnega partnerstva kot nosilne platforme za vzpodbujanje nadaljnjega sodelovanja...
    •    naglaša, da pobuda „2010 Innovation Union Flagship“ omogoča veliko koristnih (?)...
    •    poudarja, da je treba Horizon 2020 izvesti in razviti kot program, ki si za cilj postavlja globalne družbenorazvojne izzive. Odprte inovacije, inovacijski pristopi, ki jih vodijo povpraševanje in potrebe uporabnikov, vključno z zelenimi in trajnostnimi inovacijami...
    •    poudarja nujnost premostitve vrzeli med razvojem in trgom...
    •    podčrtuje  pomen ustvarjalnosti, ne-tehnoloških inovacij in izboljšanih standardov za industrijsko konkurenčnost, ter poudarja ustvarjanje medsebojnih sinergij med kulturnimi, ustvarjalnimi industrijami in tradicionalnimi industrijami...
    •    poudarja  nujnost uvajanja poenostavitev in zmanjševanja administracijskega bremena pri vseh javnih R&R programih...

    Naj ob koncu zapišem še par besed o mojem stiku z Litvo, ali bolje,  z Vilniusom in drugimi udeleženci na konferenci. Kot prvo, mnogi domačini so zelo podobni Slovencem, neverjetna  enakost obrazov me je vzpodbudila, da bom temu posvetila več pozornosti. Drugič, arhitektura v Vilniusu je čista, prostorna in ustvarjalna. Mesto je gostoljubno, odprto, dobro razporejeno. Vsepovsod je videti vpliv oblikovalcev, to ima pozitiven učinek na ljudi. Ljudje, ki razmišljamo o inovacijah, vedno bolj kot drugi razumemo, da moramo razviti svoj lasten, enkraten pristop do inovacij, ki bo vključeval lokalne značilnosti (kulturo, zgodovino, lokalna znanja). Na priložnostni razstavi, s katero so obogatili konferenčno dogajanje, sem videla veliko naprednih in praktičnih rešitev: mobilne, hitre napravice za testiranje kvalitete svežega mesa in rib, napredne zobozdravniške instrumente in opremo za kvalitetno nego zob, električne motorčke za kolesa in električne avtomobile, naprave za skeniranje hrane za ortopedske pripomočke, imenitna orodja za mobilne igre, itd. Hvala Litva, hvala Vilnius!

              BIN@BRAZIL – nova globalna izkušnja   
    Nova dežela. Novo vznemirjenje. Nova presenečenja. Nova prilagoditev globalne slike. Brazilija je ponudila vse to in sprejela sem njene vibracije s hvaležnostjo in radovednostjo. Prinesla pa sem jim naše izkušnje, poglede in primere dobrih praks. Slovenske zgodbe, ki temeljijo na trajnostnem razvoju, družbeni odgovornosti in inovativnosti: zgodbo projekta Challenge:Future, InCo gibanja, BTC poslovnega sistema. Na njihovo povabilo. Čeprav Slovenija ni prisotna v nobenih njihovih gospodarskih statistikah, so pogovori izničili velikost, razdaljo, neznano. Prevladovali so resnični izzivi inovativnosti, gospodarskega razvoja, tehnoloških priložnosti, ovir in odgovornosti. Angažiranje množic in vsesplošnega družbenega razvoja vznemirja mnoge (Čile, Portugalsko, Brazilijo, Slovenijo, Švedsko, Peru, Veliko Britanijo, ipd.). Prevzela so nas ugibanja o novem svetu, novih globalnih premikih, internacionalizaciji. Vesela sem, da se mi je ponudila ta priložnost. Čutim, da to ni moj zadnji obisk.  To je zgodba mojih poslovnih izkušenj. Obrigada Brazil!

    Ključna spoznanja:
    1. Do sedaj največja raznolikost ljudi na vseh nivojih in okoljih vsakdanjega življenja. Celo do te mere, da mi ni uspelo prepoznati prevladujočega izgleda. Še danes ne vem, kako izgleda človek iz Brazilije, kako ga prepoznati v množici vseh različnih skupin narodov. Seveda to velja za mesta.  Mesta, ki se pospešeno razvijajo kot samostojne celote sredi naravnih prostranstev. Hkrati pa moram izpostaviti prijaznost in ustrežljivost ljudi. Vidi se, da je stopnja brezposelnosti nižja od 5%. To pa ima tudi negativne vplive, saj ljudje veliko krožijo med službami, ne da bi pri tem utrdili in preizkusili nova znanja.

    2. Brezmejnost podeželja. Stotine kilometrov polj (plantaže sladkornega trsa, pomarančevcev, kavovcev, kakavovcev, ipd.) in gozdov. Ceste so ravne, tu in tam kmetija in bencinska postaja z restavracijo. Mnoge nianse zelene te kar posrkajo vase. Podeželje ima drugačno duhovno dimenzijo. Imam občutek, da nevidne moči Brazilije še niso vključene v njihova poslovna razmišljanja. Poslovni jezik je zelo stvaren, logičen, tehnološki.

    3. Izjemen poudarek je na gospodarskem razvoju. Glavni cilj – preboj na globalne trge in umestitev med najmočnejša gospodarstva na svetu. Vodilna pozicija je velika motivacija, še posebej za zvezdno državo São Paulo, ki je gonilna gospodarska sila v Federativni Republiki Braziliji (lokacija naše konference). To je sicer v nasprotju z njihovo notranjo politiko, ki dovoljuje v večini primerov vstop na brazilski trg le tako, da pri njih razviješ proizvodnjo preko partnerstva z lokalnimi predstavniki. Tovrstna samozadostnost, ki ni enkratna le Braziliji, vzpodbuja razvoj poslovnih modelov, ki ne delujejo v smeri odprtih, vključujočih sistemov in cvetočega Planeta. Upam, da bo Brazilija našla svojo lastno pot razvoja, vzpodbujala nove poslovne modele, ki kapitalizirajo izjemno imigrantsko tradicijo in raznolikost, ki je še vedno podprta z močnim prilivom svežega znanja iz vseh koncev sveta.

    4. Pomanjkanje izobraženih ljudi. Primanjkuje jim več kot 40.000 inženirjev vseh profilov. Vidno je pomanjkanje znanja tujih jezikov. Celo v hotelih, kjer se neprestano izmenjujejo tuji gosti, govorijo in razumejo angleško le redki. To prepoznavajo kot izziv internacionalizaciji. Izkušnje portugalskih podjetij, ki so tu množično prisotne, kažejo na številne izzive za razvoj stabilnega, trajnostno-naravnanega poslovanja: visoka stopnja administracije, pomanjkanje znanj, visoka stopnja že omenjene fluktuacije ljudi.  A nasmeh in dobra volja, ki so povsod prisotni omehča tudi tovrstne izzive.

    www.parqtec.com.br
    5. Inovativnost prevladuje v vseh strateških usmeritvah, tako pri razvoju gospodarstva, kot tudi občin in administracije. Kot že omenjeno, prevladuje orientiranost na tehnološke inovacije, še zlasti na področju nafte in zemeljskega plina (država jih zavezuje, da investirajo 1% prihodkov v R&R), medicine, zobozdravstva, farmacije (še posebej tu v Ribeirão Preto), poljedelstva in naprednih tehnologij. Velike količine denarja se preusmerja v vzpodbujanje inovativne miselnosti in podjetništva. Na obisku v enem od razvojnih centrov v São Carlos-u, ki je del Univerzitetnega kompleksa, ki sodi pod okrilje Univerze São Paulo, me je prijetno presenetil podatek, da jih mesto podpira z 5% GDPja. V zameno so lansirali razvojni projekt do 2022, ki bo mestu omogočil 1011 novih podjetij oziroma tehnoloških transferov v obstoječa podjetja. Država in občine zelo veliko vlagajo v razvoj še zlasti skozi podporna okolja. Slednja so podobna našim (inkubatorji, podjetniški centri, razvojne agencije, pospeševalniki). Ključna razlika je v neprestanem pritoku denarja in intenzivni internacionalizaciji. Brazilija je rastoča ekonomija.

    6. Brez zavestne verbalizacije trajnostnega razvoja, družbene odgovornosti ali odgovornega inoviranja. V prezentacijah iz lokalnega okolja sem pogrešala prisotnost eko zavesti in povezavo predlaganih rešitev s potrebami strank (B2B ali B2C). Ugotovitev me je zmedla in sem potrebovala kar nekaj časa, da sem jo uspela umestiti v mojo podobo sveta. Še posebej po izkušnji v Vietnamu in Taiwanu, kjer je stopnja sistemskega razmišljanja, trajnostnega razvoja in eko zavesti jasno komunicirana v javnosti na vsakem koraku.  Hkrati pa me je, po moji končani prezentaciji, ki je povezala inovativnost, trajnostni razvoj in družbeno odgovornost, poiskalo mnogo mladih ljudi, ki v sebi že čutijo klic ekocivilizacije in bolj odgovornega razvoja. Mnogo je različnih poti do razvoja cvetočega Planeta. Mnogo različnih poti. Pomembno je, da so.

    Upam, da ste začutili del vibracij, ki sem jim bila izpostavljena, jih tudi sama vzpodbudila in vsaj rahlo povezala izkušnje in razmišljanja dveh svetov: Slovenije in Brazilije na temo inovativnosti.

    Naj se vezi krepijo dalje.

                Kako izjemna jesen!   
      Z vsakim mesecem se nam poglablja razumevanje temeljev našega življenja, naše povezanosti, medsebojne odvisnosti. Vse bolj razumemo, da soustvarjamo konec neke civilizacije; pred očmi se nam rišejo njeni doprinosi k razvoju človekove zavesti, k razvoju planeta Zemlja in pri postavljanju izhodišč, ki bodo v naslednjih tisočletjih napajali nove generacije.

      Na tej točki bi vam lahko govorila o propadajočih zgodbah imperialistične miselnosti, korupciji, obsesiji starih sil z močjo, lastništvom virov, nepremičnin, človeških duš. Lahko bi vam govorila o ignoranci mnogih, še posebej tistih na položajih, v odnosu do novega, svežega, uporabnega, človeškega. Pa ne bom!

      Namesto tega, bom tudi ob tej priložnosti govorila o svetlobi, ki odpira duha. Duha, ki krepi pogum po izvirnosti in manifestaciji lepote, ustvarjalnosti, dobrega. Ki poživlja upanje in vzpodbuja sodelovanje, raznolikost, veselje do življenja. Ki prepozna potenciale globalnega sodelovanja in zna vtkati lokalne enkratnosti v dobro cvetočega Planeta. To je zgodba o jeseni 2013! To so dogodki, ki so jesen in nas vse, ki smo jo soustvarjali, zaznamovali za vedno. Delimo jih z vami v obliku ključnih sporočil: 

      1. Slovenija je ustvarjalni prostor za družbene inovacije, poslovne modele in nove miselne vzorce. Je intuitivno srce Evrope. To je ena naših ključnih sposobnosti. Dovolimo ji, da se s pomočjo čiščenja emocionalnih in duhovnih blokad vsakega posameznika in posameznice, ki deluje v tem našem prostoru, razcveti.

      Dogodka, ki sta v jeseni okrepila poletno izkušnjo iz Nizozemske, Vietnama in Tajvana:
      - po uspešni predstavitvi InCo knjige z naslovom »The Magic of Contribution« (»Čarobnost prispevanja«) v mednarodnem prostoru (na 57. mednarodni konferenci o sistemski znanosti  v Vietnamu) smo se v začetku septembra odločili, da knjigo predstavimo tudi v slovenskem prostoru, in sicer, 3.9.2013 pred gostilno »Druga Violina« (utrinki v fotogaleriji). Dogodek je ozavestil pomembne izkušnje, pristope  in orodja, razvita v zadnjih 7 letih delovanja InCo gibanja; ozavestil je znanja in modrosti, pridobljena na podlagi aktivnega dela na terenu, delavnic, fokusnih skupin, konferenc ter odprtega dialoga z vsemi akterji InCo inovacijskega ekosistema. Na primeru InCo gibanja je v publikaciji prikazana moč povezovanja za doseganje skupnih ciljev, v dobro posameznikov in družbe.

      2. Slovenija nosi v sebi energijo povezovanja, ljubezni in zbliževanja ljudi iz vsega sveta. V Sloveniji se ljudje počutimo varne, spoštovane, narava pa nas vedno znova preseneča s svojimi čudesi. Mladi to vedo in se na intuitivnem nivoju vedno znova vračajo v Slovenijo po nasmeh, prijateljske vezi in uvide za prihodnost.

      - Konec septembra (20.9.2013 – 26.9.2013) je na različnih koncih Slovenije (Maribor, Ljubljana, Bled) potekal C:F Summit 2013, katerega namen je združiti mlade iz celega sveta, da skupaj soustvarjajo in rešujejo izzive globalnega delovanja. V letošnjem letu je več kot 35.000 mladih skupaj sooblikovalo 1.389 timov, ki so reševali izzive v treh kategorijah:

      •    »My dream job« (nagrajeni so bili projekti: IGNITE, Good Riddance in Achievement 2022)
      •    »The future of work« (nagrajeni so bili projekti: fYOUture, HOW Consulting Group in spirit)
      •    »Make it work« (nagrajeni so bili projekti: MICHAEL IYANRO CYCLE, Button in winners team)


      C:F Summit se je pričel s C:F Akademijo »Global Jumpstart meets Star:up Maribor« za osebnostni in strokovni razvoj mladih udeležencev ter projektnim delom povezanim z iskanjem rešitev za izbrana slovenska podjetja, katerega namen je bil spoznati izzive in priložnosti realnega poslovnega sveta. Nadaljeval se je z »Out of the Box C:F Youth« – predstavitvijo projektov, ki kreirajo delovna mesta, gospodarsko rast in družbeno blaginjo 21. stoletja. Višek Summita pa je bil C:F Business Forum z naslovom »Big Ideas for boosting Growth and Creating Jobs« katerega namen je bil na enem mestu združiti in vzpostaviti vezi med političnimi vodji, mladimi, podjetniki in inovatorji iz različnih področij ter ugotoviti kaj so glavne notranje moči Slovenije, globalne prednosti in priložnosti za rast. Mladim upom iz celega sveta so se pridružili slovenski poslovneži ter predstavniki slovenskega političnega vrha, ki so skupaj iskali inovativne ideje za preboj slovenskega gospodarstva. C:F Business Forum 2013 je bil zasnovan po načelu t.i. »crowd innovation«, kjer so bili vsi udeleženci aktivno vpeti v dogajanje. Jedro soustvarjanja je bilo vprašanje: »Kaj lahko storim z milijardo evrov za preboj slovenskega gospodarstva«. Najbolj prodorne ideje so bile predstavljene ministru za gospodarstvo, Slavku Stepišniku. V okviru Summita je bil organiziran še »C:F Educators Forum« ter Gala večer, kjer so bili razglašeni zmagovalci C:F izzivov.

      - V začetku oktobra smo s svojim znanjem prispevali na NETFORK Akademiji 2013, katere namen je usposobiti menedžerje za internet; aktivno sodelovali na delavnici za vodje;

      - Sodelovali smo skupaj s Tičom Zupančičem in njegovim notranjim krogom v viharjenju možganov o uporabi »Beyond leadership« metode v slovenskem prostoru;


      - Udeležili smo se otvoritvene slovesnosti 19. Slovenskega festivala znanosti z naslovom »Ustvarjalnost prinaša upanje«.


      - v okviru 6. Dnevov podjetništva 2013 (organiziranih s strani Tehnološkega parka Ljubljana in podjetja Data) smo sooblikovali začetni navdih konference in okroglo o mizo z naslovom »Financiranje podjetniških projektov v 2013 in 2014«. Namen Dnevov podjetništva je druženje, izmenjava informacij in izkušenj, ter seznanitev mladih podjetnikov z aktualnimi viri financiranja, podjetniškimi temami in izzivi.


      3. Slovenija ima sploščeno hierarhijo, kar ji omogoča, da lahko hitro in učinkovito poveže različne strukture in interesne skupine v iskanje skupnega dobrega.

      - Sredi oktobra smo v okviru InCo gibanja v soorganizaciji Združenja Manager že drugo leto zapored organizirali javni posvet, tokrat na temo »Sistemsko razmišljanje – pot do pospešene izvedbe dobrih idej«. Glavni namen posveta je bila pridobitev vpogleda v razumevanje soodvisnosti med inovativnostjo, intuicijo in sistemskim razmišljanjem. V uvodnem delu so bili predstavljeni novi izzivi sodobnega managementa ter InCo koncept kot del svetovnih trendov v sistemskem razmišljanju. Sledila je delavnica preko katere smo spoznali metode za prizemljitev idej: metoda U, intuicijski ključ, Beyond the Leadership in asociacije. V zaključnem delu pa so bile predstavljene smernice razvoja sistemskega razmišljanja ter sistemski pristopi iz prakse. Posvet je bil preko portala vŽivo.si tudi direktno predvajan, posnetek posveta pa je dostopen tej povezavi. Nekaj utrinkov iz dogodka si lahko ogledate v fotogaleriji, posamezne predstavitve govorcev pa so dostopne na InCo spletni strani posveta.

      - 21. oktobra 2013 se je na GZS odvijala prebojna konferenca z naslovom »Kako do energije za uspešno vodenje?« Naše glavno sporočilo na konferenci je bilo, da je srčna energija tista, ki vodi in napaja vse ostale. Da se v prostoru dogaja veliko dobrega in da je čas, da govorimo in sodelujemo s pozitivnimi viri razvoja. Osrednja oseba dogodka je bil doktor fizike in psiholog dr. Yuri Yatsko (intervju z njim si lahko preberete v Sobotni prilogi časopisa Delo).

      - Isti dan v večernih urah smo pomembne izkušnje iz sodelovanja z managerji in strategijami razvoja za korporativna okolja izpostavili na mesečnem klubskem srečanju članov Društva moderatorjev na temo »Moderiranje procesov v podporo oblikovanju strategij«.


      - Pomemben impulz je v slovenskem prostoru sprožila tudi Maria Anselmo s svojo ekipo z dogodkom BisnodeB4B (Bisnode For Business ali Best Four Businesses), katerega namen je bil motivirati poslovno javnost, spodbujati podjetništvo in poleg predstavitve odličnih zgodb omogočiti obiskovalcem mreženje in spoznavanje novih ljudi.


      - Udeležili smo se okoljsko ozaveščenega seminarja »Tvoja pisarna je lahko zelena«: kako ustvariti zeleno pisarno, reciklirati izdelke, delati na daljavo in uporabljati trajnostne pisarniške izdelke.


      4. Slovenija ima globoko v sebi skritega veliko zgodovinskega strahu.
      Najrazličnejši imperialisti so si v preteklosti lastili ozemlje na katerem slovenski narod živi že tisočletja; vedno znova so agresivno uveljavljali svojo voljo, zakone in oblast. Vedno znova smo se v želji po preživetju prilagodili in odmaknili od agresije za katero smo vedeli, da bo slej ko prej propadla. Genetsko se nam prenaša iz generacije v generacijo, vpliva na naše osebne in poslovne odločitve. Od tu verjetno izhaja tudi izjemno kritičen odnos do neuspeha. Pomembno pa je, da smo se tudi s tem negativnim elementom začeli soočati.

      - Konec oktobra smo svoje izkušnje in spoznanja delili na »Fear&Fail« konferenci, ki je v čudovitem vzdušju Antique Palace Hotel&Spa povezala poslovneže iz Nemčije, Madžarske, Slovenije in Avstrije. Izmenjava zgodb o neuspehu in poslovnih napakah je bila osvežujoča, globoka in je ozavestila izjemen pomen demistifikacije neuspeha in z njim povezanega strahu v poslovnem svetu. Če strahu in neuspeha ne upravljaš, ga ne ozavestiš, se ne moreš premakniti naprej v svojem razvoju.

      Upam, da se strinjate – jesen je bila res pestra. Ne glede na tematiko, vsebino ali udeležence, imajo navedeni dogodki nekaj skupnega: dovolj nam je starih vzorcev razmišljanja, dovolj nam je hierarhično vsiljenih vzvodov moči. Življenje je lahko tudi drugačno in le sami si ga lahko ustvarimo po novi podobi.
      A jesen še ni končana. Kmalu se vam oglasim iz Brazilije, kjer bom kot vabljena govorka, posredovala na njihovi konferenci o inovativnosti, izkušnje Slovenije, naša spoznanja, modele in rezultate vezane na inovacijske ekosisteme.

                Involucija in evolucija – Tajvan 2013   
      Ko me je profesorica Ming Fen povabila, da bi se kot ena od uvodnih predavateljic udeležila Mednarodne konference o socialno okoljskem izobraževanju na novo porajajoče se eko-civilizacije, sem se z velikim veseljem pozitivno odzvala zaradi (takrat) dveh razlogov:

      1) Tajvan je, vsaj zame, ena od vodilnih tehnološko razvitih držav na svetu. Ker sem sama po formalni izobrazbi računalniška inženirka, me je možnost, da o računalniški industriji v tej državi zvem kaj več, prijetno vzradostila. Saj to je pomenilo spoznati, kako se Tajvanci odzivajo na globalne trende, kako razmišljajo, kako oblikujejo odločitve, kako vzpostavljajo sisteme, s katerimi se soočajo z izzivi novega sveta in kako pri tem ohranjajo človeški aspekt življenja.

      Jezik: angleški, kitajski

      Glocal = Global and local
      2) Tema mojega prispevka, ki mi jo je predlagal organizator, me je presenetila in izzvala, da s premislekom sežem čez svoje običajne okvire ter tako razvijem nove poglede na delo, s katerim se ukvarjam.

      Članek & prezentacija: “Connecting Evolution and Involution to Create a Positive Foundation for an Eco-Civilization”, V. Bulc,  NTNU, Taipei, Tajvan 2013.

      Delavnica: Collective Dialog on Green Social Innovation; Udeleženci: 60 predstavnikov gospodarstva, vlade, univerze, raziskovalne dejavnosti in nevladne organizacije; gostitelji: MingFen Li & KingKong Lin, Alexandr Laszlo & Violeta Bulc.

      Evolúcija je biološki proces, pri katerem se genski zapis populacij organizmov spreminja iz generacije v generacijo. Čeprav so spremembe znotraj posamezne generacije majhne, se organizmi z njihovim kopičenjem zlagoma spreminjajo in sčasoma lahko ta proces vodi v nastanek novih vrst.

      Ko sem prispela na Tajvan, sem kmalu ugotovila, da naslov mojega uvodnega predavanja ni bilo edino presenečenje, ki me je čakalo na mojem obisku. Teden dni na Tajvanu mi je dalo precej več. Moja doživetja so bila globoka, temeljita in navdihujoča.

      Naj nekaj od doživetij posredujem tudi vam. Upam, da jih bom dovolj dobro povzela in tudi vas popeljala na to pomembno potovanje.

      1. Ljudje in arhitektura
      Prvi stik z deželo se je začel s srečanjem z ljudmi in z arhitekturo na letališču. Letališke zgradbe so bile prostorne, zračne in čiste. Izpod stropa nas je gledal velik, pisan zmaj in se nam smehljal. Zame je bilo to prvo srečanje z modernim Tajvanom, prvo od mnogih, ki so mu sledila: druga najvišja zgradba na svetu, brezizrazne zgradbe, ki so me spominjale na podobne slovenske iz istega obdobja, celovito oblikovane hiše z osvežujočimi zelenimi površinami in ekološko dodelanimi prvinami. Hkrati pa sem opazila, da pri oblikovanju prostora razmišljajo o ljudeh in pogojih za njihovo blaginjo. Recikliranje, na primer, so na Tajvanu razvili še za korak dalje. V mestu je težko najti koš za smeti. Ljudje morajo svoje smeti odnesti s sabo domov in jih pravilno razvrstiti.
      Ljudje: Študentje, ki so nas pričakali na letališču, so si naredili pisane in vesele oznake z našimi imeni. Čeprav smo bili precej utrujeni (prileteli smo naravnost iz konference v Vietnamu), so nas nasmejali. V hotelski sobi ja na nas čakalo še eno drobno presenečenje naših gostiteljev – košara s prigrizki tajvanske kuhinje. In to je ustvarilo vzdušje za ves naslednji teden – tako za samo konferenco kakor tudi za pripadajoče poslovne oglede po otoku. Organizatorji so se potrudili, da smo zaznali vsako podrobnost njihove kulture, razvoja, njihovega načina razmišljanja, razumevanja in delovanja na krajevni, regionalni in globalni ravni.

      Način, kako razmišljajo o življenju, sodelovanju, udeleženosti in občutljivosti v skupnosti, me je navdušil. Zlahka sem začutila prevladujoč duhovni vpliv, ki ga ima budistični nauk v njihovem odnosu do venomer spreminjajočega se življenja. Srečanje z direktorjem budističnega inštituta, ki nas je vse presenetil z radovednostjo in pripravljenostjo poslušati in se naučiti kaj novega, je samo še potrdilo moje začetno prepričanje.

      Na Tajvanu sem se pogosto počutila povsem domače in pozitivno, začutila sem namreč njihovo spoštovanje do kulture, spoznala številne zelo praktične rešitve, s katerimi se odzivajo na vsakdanje potrebe. Vsepovsod sem videla vrtove, vedno znova občudovala njihovo spoštovanje ekološko pridelane hrane, njihovo odprtost in ponos v majhnih zadevah, ki so segale globoko. Tako tudi med našim obiskom krajevnega umetnika, ki velja za največjega mojstra keramike našega časa, saj se je bolj kot kdorkoli drug poglobil v starodavno veščino keramične obrti, a vseeno živi preprosto, posvečeno življenje v svoji delavnici v okraju Puli. Pogosto so me samo kitajske pismenke opozarjale, da sem v resnici v tuji deželi. Globoko se zahvaljujem svojim gostiteljem za vse izkušnje, znanje in modrost, ki sem jih bila deležna in jih imela priložnost spoznati ne tem potovanju.

      2. Konferenca
      Konferenca, zaradi katere smo prišli na Tajvan, je imela izzivajoč naslov (glej zgoraj). Vsebina, ki so jo predstavili sodelujoči na konferenci, pozneje pa tudi na delavnicah, je popolnoma izpolnila njegov namen. Poudarek konference je bil na holističnih in sistemskih praksah ohranjevanja ekološkega okolja in na inovacijah glokaliziranih eko-skupnosti, na pomenu sistematičnega premisleka pri javnem delovanju in eko-razvoju ter o zmožnosti izgrajevanja zelenih družbenih podjetij. 

      Zelo sem bila vesela, da so prakse iz Slovenije, ki sem jih predstavila v svojem prispevku, in sicer, Challenge Future (C:F), Srce Slovenije, InCo gibanje in BTCjeva trajnostna strategija razvoja, pritegnile precejšnjo pozornost in občudovanje.

      Vse štiri prakse imajo nekaj skupnega: vse v svojem poslovnem modelu upoštevajo socialne in/ali poslovne inovacije (izviren način, strast, navdihnjenost iz vira, namenjeno tako posameznikom kakor skupinam) in sistematični pristop, vse upoštevajo in povezujejo točke uspešnega razvoja, vse pri svojem razvoju prepletajo evolucijo in involucijo.

      Moj glavni poudarek prispevka je bil, da med razvojem organizacije (projektov) (evolucija) in razvojem posameznika (involucija), ki so vključeni v projekt, še posebej tistega, ki je lastnik začetne ideje, potekajo vzajemni odnosi. Opozorila sem tudi na bistvene značilnosti, ki so me ohrabrile v veri, da se nova civilizacija že pojavlja, kar pomeni vse večja prisotnost odprtih (inovacijskih) eko sistemov, skupne globalne vrednote, rast celostnega zavedanjs, povečanje obsega zavestnega ravnanja, ki se bogati iz nezavednega, vse večja prisotnost regionalnega in globalnega mreženja, oblikovanje vrednot v medkulturnem sodelovanju, udeleženosti, in vse večji vpliv sistemskega premišljevanja.

      Slika: konferenči plakat
      Vir: Vibacom
      Spoznala sem, da se udeleženci zavedajo istih globalnih izzivov (celo na lokalni ravni) in da moramo nadaljevati z oblikovanjem globalnih mrež in posredovanja primerov dobrega delovanja, da se lahko drug od drugega učimo in skupaj oblikujemo rešitve in razcvet. To lahko počnemo samo v odprtem svetu inovacij, onkraj zemljepisnih meja in političnih ovir. Takšno razmišljanje je temelj pojavljajoče se globalne civilizacije. Z vsako uspešno rešitvijo, ki je plod medsebojnega sodelovanja, čutim, da je energija nove civilizacije vedno močneje prisotna v našem vsakdanjem življenju.
      Delavnica z udeleženci krajevne pobude inovacijskega ekosistema v »Vidim-te-kavarni« je to samo še potrdila. Čeprav mnogi od njih niso govorili angleško, midva z Alexandrom pa ne kitajsko, nama je uspelo, deloma tudi s pomočjo dodatnega prevoda, ustvariti zelo dinamično, dejavno delavnico z aktivnimi udeleženci, v kateri smo si uspešno izmenjali spoznanja o obravnavanih temah.

      Slika: plakat z vmesnimi rezultati
      Vir: Vibacom
      Na koncu smo celo izoblikovali preprost akcijski načrt. Vsi primeri so bili stvarni. Publiki so jih predstavili člani lokalnih nevladnih skupnosti. Bistveni izzivi so bili podobni tistim, s katerimi smo se srečali že na delavnicah Srca Slovenija ali pa o njih brali na C:F portalu (ki so ga identificirali mladi), med drugim, pomanjkanje izobrazbe, pomanjkanje ustreznih informacij za jasno odločanje, pomanjkanje sodelovanja in inovacij.

      Slika: Tajvanska delavnica
      Vir: Vibacom
      Težave smo premagali tako, da smo opredelili model deležnikov inovacijskih ekosistemov vezanih na izbrane projekte, bistvene izzive, bistvena orodja in bistvene ukrepe. Veselilo me je, da je veliko skupin uporabilo »U« metodo (ki jo uporabljajo tudi člani InCo gibanja). Bilo je veliko veselja, smeha, živahnih pogovorov in ponosnih predstavitev v naši učilnici. Hvala ti, Tajvan, za to izkušnjo in priložnost biti član ekipe moderatorjev.

      3. Sistemska znanost
      Konferenca in spremljevalni program na Tajvanu sta ponovno potrdila, da se sistemska znanost in sistemsko mišljenje krepita po vsem svetu ter tako ustvarjata platformo za trajnostno in cvetoče reševanje problemov. To so ugotovile tudi mnoge vladne službe … samo upam lahko, da se bo tudi Slovenija ugotovila, da so celostne rešitve tiste, ki ponujajo veliko več stabilnosti, trajnosti in rezultatov.

      Slika: Skupinska slika gostov in gostiteljev

      Ko se oziram nazaj, ugotavljam, da smo na Tajvanu srečali veliko raznovrstnih stvari. Videli smo neverjetne ljudi, izvedeli za mnoge zanimive projekte, si ogledali čudovito naravo, muzeje, budistične centre, lokalne osnovne in srednje šole, spoznali umetnika in ljudi pri delu. Bilo je toliko tega, da sem pri vsem skupaj celo pozabila, da bi ljudi povprašala o industriji visoko razvite tehnologije. Če ne bi imela HTC mobilnega telefona, izdelanega na Tajvanu (na kar so nas mnogi ljudje ponosno opozorili), bi povsem pozabila na visoko tehnološko razvitost Tajvana. A morda pa prav ta informacija že sama po sebi veliko pove.

      Kako lahko sodelujemo 
      Kje se lahko srečamo

                S sistemskim pristopom do hitrejšega razvoja, Vietnam 2013   
      Ko me je predsednik ISSS (International System Science Society), Alexander Laszlov, pred letom in pol povabil, da prevzamem vodenje skupine za design programa svetovne ISSS konference v Vietnamu, sem vlogo sprejela s spoštovanjem in radovednostjo. Brez pričakovanj in brez vizije, kam me/nas bo naloga pripeljala. Bila je naporna, a izjemno bogata izkušnja, obogatena z vsaj tremi ključnimi vsebinami:
      1. vodenje globalnega projekta (člani so bili iz vseh celin planeta Zemlja),
      2. lansiranje naše nove knjige o InCo gibanju “The Magic of Contribution” v Vietnamu in
      3. izjemna doživetja Vietnama skozi prizmo njihovih ljudi, projektov in priložnosti, ki jih vidijo za svoj razvoj.

      Slika: Vietnam the design tim
      Vir: Vibacom
      Osebno sem dojela ključna sporočila konference kot:
      • Sistemsko razmišljanje in sistemska znanost postajajo osrednji način razmišljanja novo razvijajoče se planetarne civilizacije.
      • Sistemsko razmišljanje se razvija v smeri sistemske zavesti in sistemskega sebstva z razumevanjem pomena posameznice/ka kot aktivnega in samostojnega dela celote.
      • Vse večji poudarek je na inteligenci odnosov in uravnoteženosti med kolektivnim in individualnim; pri tem je v veliko pomoč sistemsko razmišljanje.
      • Priča smo premiku od planiranja aktivnosti k dizajniranju pogojev in okolja, ki dovoljuje nastajanje novega.
      • Za vodje/managerje bo pomemben premik k učinkovitemu zagotavljanju okolja, ki bo dovoljevalo pogoje za nepredvidljivo, vnašanje elementov presenečenja, drugačnosti, ki bo dovoljevalo oblikovanje lastnih pogledov brez v naprej definiranih okvirjev razmišljanja in sklepanja (kot je poudaril v svojem zaključnem govoru zdaj že bivši predsednik ISSS, prof. A. Laszlov, “prispevek sistemske znanosti k razvoju cvetočega planeta ni v sajenju semen, ampak v pripravi rodovitnega polja, ki je pogoj za zdrav pridelek).
      • Prihodnost je v povezovanju, soustvarjanju, razumevanju soodvisnosti in aktivni participaciji tako na lokalnem kot globalnem nivoju
      Celotno sporočilo konference bi lahko strnila v: “Bodi sam sistem, ki ga želiš živeti”.

      Izkušnja vodenja globalnega projekta

      A. Tim: virtualni tim, ki sem ga prevzela v vodenje je bil precej velik.  Na začetku je celo kazalo, da ga bo nemogoče voditi. Pa vendar, ko smo po nekaj skype srečanjih uskladili naša pričakovanja, razumeli ambicije, s katerimi smo člani/ice vstopili v projekt, uskladili pojmovnik in jasno opredelili okvir projekta, je delo steklo. Danes, na zadnji dan konference, lahko rečem,  da je struktura in vsebina konference dobro podprla aktivnosti na parketu, dovolila dovolj prostora za druženje in osebne kontakte, hkrati pa vedno znova vzpostavljala dinamiko med udeleženci.
      Members of the team: Alexander Laszlo (President of the ISSS), Jacqui Wilmshurst, Pamela Buckle Henning, Barbara Widhalm, Kathryn Bottrell, Todd Johnston, Palma Vizzoni, Karri Winn, Will Varey, Ockie Bosch, Irma Wilson, Violeta Bulc (Coordinator of the Conference Design Team), Nam Nguyen (Coordinator of the Conference Organization & Logistics team), George Por (Coordinator of the Collective Intelligence Enhancement Lab team), Stefan Blachfellner (Coordinator of the External Communication & Coordination team), Jennifer Wilby (Vice President for Administration and the central reference point for the official ISSS activities)
      B. Prednosti vodenja virtualnega projekta: virtualni projekt lahko vodiš iz pisarne (včasih tudi iz dnevne sobe); poraba časa za srečanja je veliko bolj učinkovita (po dveh urah začne koncentracija padati, zato sestanki praviloma ne trajajo več kot 2 uri), vsi zapisi in komentarji se beležijo v živo in se simultano dopolnjujejo, popravljajo; ko ne zmoreš več, ali pa imaš druge obveznosti, se lahko hitro posloviš.  
      Slabosti virtualnega projekta: težko vzdržuješ koncentracijo ljudi (da bi povečali učinkovitost telekomunikacijskih linij, smo pogosto izključili video del in bilo je čutiti, da člani opravljajo še dodatna dela za računalnikom, zato njihova participacija ni bila vedno osredotočena na obravnavane teme), vstop v tim in izstop iz timskega dela je samo klik stran, kar je večkrat moteče, (manjša disciplina), ne osebnega, neposrednega kontakta (neposrednega prelivanja energij), kar zmanjša stopnjo spontanosti in kreativnost. Izzivi v vodenju globalnega tima: velike časovno razlike in posledično težave pri usklajevanju urnikov za srečanja (npr. pozna večerna ura v Sloveniji in Južni Afriki, zgodnja ura v Avstraliji, sredi delavnega dne na vzhodni obali ZDA),  zagotavljanje konsistentnosti v timu (prisotnost, angažiranost, vpetost), koordinacija komentarjev, participacije članov virtualnega tima, sposobnost zaznavanja vzdušja v timu in ustreznih intervencij, ko so se misli preveč oddaljile od bistva ali pa prevzele preveč prostora, ipd.

      C. Inovativni dosežki: zelo vzpodbudna izkušnja zame pa je bila, da smo, navkljub omenjenim pogojem delovanja, uspeli inovirati, prebijati vzorce obnašanja in razumevanja in se pri tem še vedno iskreno zabavati. Prav pa je, da na tem mestu omenim, da je pomembno vlogo igralo začetno fizično srečanja šestih članov  tima v Linzu spomladi 2012, kjer smo uspeli postaviti začetna izhodišča za timsko delo. Ključni inovativni prispevki za konferenco v Vietnamu (v primerjavi s prejšnjimi konferencami) so bili: planetarni govorci (v program konference so se v živo javljali sistemski znanstveniki iz vsega sveta in pomembno prispevali k razumevanju razvoja sistemske znanosti in sistemskega razmišljanja po svetu), praktična izkušnja živega laboratorija na otoku Kat Ba

      (s pomočjo sistemskih pristopov se na otoku prestrukturira celoten gospodarski in družbeni razvoj v dobro lokalnih prebivalcev, turizma in zaščite naravnega okolja),  skupinsko delo udeležencev na iskanju točk preliva razvijajoče se nove eko civilizacije in zajem ključnih izzivov pri njenem nastajanju, sama struktura programa (številne jutranje in večerne aktivnosti vezane na zajem refleksij udeleženk/cev, izmenjave izkušenj v okviru manjših interesnih skupin, vsebinskih dnevnih osredotočenj, ipd),  sam proces nastajanja programske sheme konference (evolucijski pristop, participativni, soustvarjalni); dodatne pomembne inovativne aktivnosti so se odvijale tudi na področju vzpostavitve virtualnega orodja v podporo participativnega povezovanja in sodelovanja (CIEL – collective intelligence evolutionary lab); novost je bilo tudi vzporedno tekmovanje študentov iz Vietnama in Avstralije v virtualni igri – Ecopolicy.

      Lansiranje nove knjige ob sedmi obletnici delovanja InCo gibanja “The Magic of Contribution”

      Prav poseben občutek, ko lansiraš knjigo na globalnem nivoju, na svetovni konferenci, s pol urno prezentacijo, ki je odlično sprejeta med poslušalci. Hvala vsem, ki ste sodelovali pri pripravi knjige in vsem, ki ste z odprtimi srci sprejeli njena ključna sporočila: www.themagicofcontribution.si.

      Izkušnja Vietnama

      Ko sem se odpravljala v Vietnam me je preveval občutek mirnega vznemirjenja. Vedela sem, da grem v novo izkušnjo, v novo deželo. Hkrati se mi je dozdevalo, da grem v znane vibracije. Zdaj vem zakaj.

      Slika: Violeta Bulc, otok Kat Ba
      Vir: Vibacom
      Bila je nepozabna izkušnja. Izjemno prijazni, veseli ljudje. Izjemno strokovni in profesionalni. Več kot 80 milijonski narod, ki se pospešeno razvija v okviru svojih neizmernih potencialov: v naravi, v ljudeh, v ambicijah, v zgodovini, v prihodnosti. Lahko bi jim reki tudi dežela skuterjev.

      Dežela visoke senzibilnosti za povezanost in soodvisnost, pa vendar vse bolj odprta tudi za individualnost. Prepletanje socialističnega duha, ki mi je dajal občutek domačnosti na eni strani in na drugi strani njihova iskrena želja, da se kot država enakovredno postavijo ob bok Kitajski, Indoneziji, Indiji in ostalim državam v regiji kot pomemben igralec pri razvoju azijskega gospodarstva, ustvarjajo impulz novodobnosti, upanja in ustvarjajo prostor za nastajanje številnih tehnoloških, poslovnih in družbenih inovacij.

      Hai Phong še ni doživel turističnega razcveta. Je pa močno gospodarsko in politično središče. Bogato je tudi kulturno izročilo. Ljudje pa so, še ne navajeni turistov, radovedni, a nikakor ne vsiljivi. Pravi užitek se je sprehajati po številnih ulicah, kjer se prepletajo motoristi, pešci, avtomobili, kolesarji –vrvež, v katerem pa se počutiš varnega in dobrodošlega.

      V luči našega projekta je bilo posebej osvežujoče dejstvo, da je najvišje politično vodstvo tako profesionalno pristopilo k uporabi sistemske znanosti za prestrukturiranje njihovega gospodarstva in družbe kot celote. Pri tem igra  veliko vlogo tudi njihovo sodelovanje z Univerzo Adalade iz Avstralije.

      Sicer pa so ulice Hai Phonga, kjer smo preživeli en teden kot eno veliko mravljišče – na ulicah se dogaja trgovina, na ulicah se prehranjuje, druži, sobiva v polnem pomenu razvijajočega se inovacijskega ekosistema.

                O odgovornih inovacijah iz Haaga   
      Stvari se spreminjajo. Po vsem svetu se po univerzah ubadajo z istim vprašanjem: Ali svoje študente učimo prave reči? Po drugi strani v vedno več podjetjih ugotavljajo, da morajo na novo zaposlene mlade izobražene ljudi najprej reprogramirati, preden jih lahko koristno vključijo v svoje inovacijske projekte in ekosisteme.

      Do podobnih spoznanj so se prikopali tudi inženirji: »Kako lahko zagotovimo, da bodo naše inovacije in odkritja odgovorno uporabili?« Ne gre samo za orodja, modele ali postopke. Jeroen Van den Hoven, uvodni govornik na konferenci je poudaril, »da si mora vsak, ki se ukvarja z inovacijami, zastaviti ključno vprašanje o tem, katerega od velikih socialnih izzivov bo pomagala razrešiti njegova ali njena inovacija«. Torej, ali živimo v zmoti? Ne. Sama sem spoznala, da si moram zastaviti drugačno vprašanje. Kateri so tisti znaki, ki kažejo, da se svet spreminja, razvija, premika naprej? Zato sem, namesto da bi iskala, kaj je prav ali ne, začela poslušati, celo med lastnim predavanjem. Bolj kakor samemu govorjenju sem sledila govorici teles poslušalcev, iskram v njihovih očeh, njihovim pripombam in vprašanjem. Doživela sem jih celostno in tako, si predstavljam, bi morda lahko začeli gledati na življenje. Vsak dan. Preden pa posredujem svoje ugotovitve iz konference, bi vam rada posredovala nekaj misli o konferenci sami, ki so jih podali njeni organizatorji.

      V: Torej kaj je obe zvezi, IEEE in ICE, pripeljalo do tega, da sta tokrat vsakoletno globalno srečanje organizirali skupaj in ga posvetili odgovornim inovacijam in podjetništvu?Dr. Roland Ortt: Obe zvezi inovacije obravnavata kot svojo pomembno vsebino. Zato smo se letos odločili, da se povežemo in tako skupaj nagovorimo to temo. Ko smo se poglobili vanjo, smo se zavedli, da se v njenem ozadju skriva precej zadev, ki zahtevajo dodatni premislek, poleg hvaljenih in takih s srečnim koncem obstaja namreč tudi veliko manj uspešnih. Na področju inovacij prihaja tudi do velikega števila napak in napačno vodenih primerov, še posebej v fazi razvoja samih inovacij. Prihaja do izgub, slabega investiranja in neuspehov tako na vseh ravneh organizacije, kakor na vseh stopnjah inovacijskega življenjskega cikla. Neprestano iščemo meje, istočasno pa poskušamo tudi socialno odgovorno delovati. Zato smo hoteli temu posvetiti posebno pozornost. K temu pa me je še dodatno vzpodbudila zgodba ameriškega avtorja, ki so ga pri nekem ameriškem časopisu povabili, da naj napiše kaj o veličini inovacij. Odkril je, da vse inovacije niso ravno blesteče. Opozoril je tudi na nekatere stranske učinke inovacij. Članek so mu zavrnili in ga nikoli niso objavili. Tako se je torej izoblikovala tema konference o odgovornih inovacijah. Povsem naravno.


      V: Kaj bi radi dosegli s konferenco?
      Dr. Roland Ortt:
      Zastavili smo si tri cilje:
      1. organizacijski cilj (povezati dve različni skupnosti: ICE kot evropsko organizacijo in IEEE skupino kot že staro inženirsko organizacijo ter skupaj načeti temo inovacij, ki že po svoji naravi sega na mnoga raznovrstna področja);
      2. vsebinski cilj (povečati zavest o nujnosti odgovornih inovacij);
      3. strukturni cilj (v Evropi izpeljati konferenco, ki bo skupaj pripeljala ljudi iz vsega sveta in bo imela trajnejšo prihodnost. Hkrati pa nismo poskušali ponuditi samo predstavitev, ampak oblikovati tudi delovna srečanja, na katerih okoli okrogle mize sodelujejo ljudje tako iz akademskega okolja, kakor javni delavci in poslovneži).

      Slika: "Različen pogled na svet"
      Vir: Vibacom arhiv
      Na konferenci smo bili res predavatelji iz vsega sveta, ki smo predstavili in načeli veliko zanimivih, tako splošnih kakor povsem praktičnih vprašanj s področja inovacij. Še posebej bi rada izpostavila naslednja spoznanja:
      • inženirskih krogih je vprašanje o odgovornih inovacijah postalo resno upoštevana tema: čeprav je mogoče slišati pripombe, da se inženirji ukvarjajo zgolj z reševanjem tehničnih izzivov ali da vojaške raziskave zadržujejo veliko odličnih tehničnih rešitev, ki bi koristile ljudem, je prevladalo vzdušje o odgovornosti inovacij, podjetništva in potrebi po njihovem sistematičnem razmisleku; zato je treba to temo vključiti v izobraževalne programe inženirjev po vsem svetu.
      • po vsem svetu se pojavlja vrsta podobnih izzivov: na primer, eden pomembnejših je, kako ljudi pripraviti do tega, da bi svoje raziskave začenjali od spodaj navzgor (bottom-up approach). Ali pa kako bi dvignili mero odgovornosti, skrajšali razvojni cikel in ga odgovorno upoštevali. Pa tudi kako bi prepoznali prave potrebe, ki imajo dolgotrajen učinek, ali kako bi v razvoj izdelka vključili tudi etične in kulturne razsežnosti. In podobno.
      • še vedno se ne potrudimo dovolj, da bi se drug od drugega več naučili: drug drugega pretežno še vedno samo obveščamo o tem, kaj smo naredili, precej manj pa rešitve, ki jih potrebujemo, iščemo drugod po svetu. V glavnem jih poskušamo izumiti na novo. Kakorkoli že, ko to počnemo, v rešitve pogosto še vedno vtiskujemo stare miselne vzorce in zastarelo mentalno arhitekturo ter tako zapravljamo priložnost, da bi se iz globalnega bazena znanja, ki tam zunaj že obstaja, kaj novega naučili. Z drugimi besedami, vznemirljive priložnosti za medstrukturno izmenjavanje izzivov in rešitev dejansko obstajajo. Globoko sem prepričan, da je nastopil čas, da se bolje povežemo in učinkoviteje uporabimo znanje in izkušnje, ki so nam kot globalni skupnosti na razpolago ter da tako nagovorimo vsaj skupne globalne izzive.
      • razvidno je, da se med uveljavljenimi spoznanji in v medsebojni odvisnosti zaradi globalizacije in odprtih sistemov kaže vedno več ne-linearnih in nepredvidljivih izzivov. Zato potrebujemo novo obliko izobraževalnih sistemov, odprtih za nove potrebe in priložnosti. Rabimo izobrazbo, ki bo ljudi opremila z znanjem o sistemskih vidikih, o trajnostnih inovacijskih pristopih, o posledicah razvoja. Izobrazbo, ki bo ljudi vzpodbudila k ustvarjanju novih, trajnostnih vizij za »stvaren« (flat) svet, v katerem živimo.
      • in še nekaj dodatnih namigov:
      a) osredotoči se na težavo: »Delovno ekipo oblikuj okoli ključnih težav. Odzivi tvojih strank ne pomenijo zaključek zgodbe o tvojem izdelku.«
      b) ugotovi pravo naravo svojega podjetništva: »Podjetništvo ne pomeni upravljanja.« Obstaja precejšnja razlika med znanjem in orodji, ki jih mora obvladati posameznik, da postane uspešen podjetnik, in tistimi, ki jih potrebuje uspešen upravitelj. En od najbolj škodljivih korakov na podjetniški poti je, da podjetnika silimo, da že na začetku novega posla spiše poslovni načrt; po drugi strani pa je prav tako škodljivo, da podjetnik ne odstopi, ko podjetje postane dovolj veliko, da ga mora začeti voditi upravitelj.
      c) s sredstvi podprta produktna platforma: »Sredstva, potrebna za razvoj produktne platforme pomenijo faktor vlaganja (input). Hkrati pa sredstvene platforme same pomenijo pomemben del sredstev podjetja. Za razvoj produktov je dobro, da ima podjetje s sredstveno platformo (platformo virov) zato, da se lahko hitro in učinkovito odziva.«
      d) inovacijske šole (I-Schools): nastalo je celo področje novih strokovnih znanj, pristojnosti, pojmov in modelov, ki jih potrebujemo za podporo nastajajočega sveta inovacij. Novi pojmi kot so: »oblikovno mišljenje« (design thinking), »odzivni razvoj računalniških programov« (agile software development), »vitko podjetništvo« (lean entrepreneurship) in “sistemično razmišljanje” (systemic thinking) ter podobno, ki jih je opredelil Nathan Furr, se v praksi hitreje pojavljajo kot v akademskih krogih in sisteme izobraževanja izzivajo, da naj se preoblikujejo in se odzovejo na dejanske potrebe ljudi.
      e) povezovanje vsebin: vedno večja je tudi potreba, da svet vrednot, norm, idej, etike in načel ter svet artefaktov, arhitekture, materialov, standardov in sistemov povežemo v celostno reševanje osrednjih izzivov naše družbe.
      f) množične inovacije: povečuje se tudi potreba po množičnih inovacijah, povezovanju sodelujočih v mreže (collaborative networks) in spontanih pobudah, ko se pojavijo novi izzivi. Ko sem predstavila izkušnje Vibacoma in ugotovitve InCo gibanja, sem spoznala, da v mnogih krogih še vedno ne razlikujejo med množičnimi inovacijami (mass innovation) in mreženji sodelujočih (collaborative innovation). Toda z naraščajočo potrebo po tem, da z inovacijami začenjamo pri dnu (bottom-up inovation) in z že prepoznanimi potrebami po mreženju sodelujočih, se svet počasi pomika v smeri razvoja množičnih inovacijskih ekosistemov.

      Kako pa je z mano? Eden od pomembnejših razlogov, da sem sodelovala na tej globalni konferenci kot predavateljica, je bila želja, da si z ljudmi iz vsega sveta izmenjam svoje poglede in ugotovim, kaj počnejo oni, da svoje delo umestim v globalno skupnost, spoznam kaj novega in drugim omogočim, da se kaj naučijo od mene. Hvaležna sem za povabilo. In lahko rečem, da se v Sloveniji gibljemo po pravih mejah in s pomembnimi spoznanji ter vizijami tudi sami prispevamo v globalno družbo razvijajočega se znanja. Še dodatno sem utrdila spoznanje, da se skupaj pomikamo proti viziji cvetočega planeta.

                Zahodni Balkan - Regija, ki se prebuja   
      Kot otrok socializma in SFRJ večkrat razmišljam o znanju in izkušnjah, ki mi jih je prinesel razpad Jugoslavije. V sebi ne čutim nobene nostalgije ali emocionalnih blokad zaradi razpada politične entitete. Pač pa so prisotna spoznanja, kot:

      - že zdavnaj razumem, da je družba dinamična struktura, ki se ves čas spreminja, prilagaja, transformira. Ki več čas prehaja iz reda v nered in ponovno v red. Prav zato so mi izzivi Evropske Unije domači. So tipični izzivi vseh, ki v raznolikosti težijo k federaciji, k vzpostavljanju političnih meja. Ki v svoji vnemi po kontroli in obvladovanju vzvodov povezovanja, prezrejo, da je bistvo uspešnega  sodelovanja v razumevanju potrebe in v ustvarjanju dodane vrednosti za to potrebo. Ki se le-ta kot vir razvoja deli med partnerji, ki so jo ustvarili,
      Ko je svet podvržen visoki stopnji sprememb, raznolikosti in neskončnih možnosti, je zelo pomembno, da v sebi nosimo mir. Da so naše misli zbrane, osredotočene. Da vemo, kaj hočemo. Da prepoznamo sebi lastne strukture skozi katere lahko slišimo, vidimo, začutimo in realiziramo priložnosti, ki so prave za nas. Ki nam v svetu neskončne raznolikosti, pomagajo realizirati tiste, ki nas napolnijo z vznesenostjo, veseljem, globokim notranjim smislom lastnega obstoja.  Slednje velja tako za nas posameznice, za organizacije, skupnosti, partnerstva, mreže, regije, celine.
      O slednjem nas uči tudi zgodovina, nas učijo priložnosti današnjega dne. 
      - jasno je razvidno in naravno, da sta administracija in javna uprava živa organizma, ki težita k rasti in trajnostnemu razvoju. Žal so tudi države, skupnosti, kot odraščajoči najstniki, ki se želijo vse naučiti same,

      - da se je od zgodovine dobro učiti, a se od nje ne da živeti. Potrebno je ukrepati vsak dan, generirati vrednost in se ves čas dinamično prilagajati.

Zvedavi, navdušujoči, optimistični in veseli, da smo prebili stekleni strop temačnosti in tragičnih dogodkov polpretekle zgodovine. Naj se nikoli ne izgubi spomin na njih. Naj nas vedno znova spominjajo na dimenzije, ki nosijo v sebi destrukcijo, sovraštvo, bolečino in hlad. A naj ostanejo le spomin.

      “Nesporno je, da za Slovenijo regija predstavlja ključno področje delovanja, saj vanjo usmerjamo večino svojih investicij (v letu 2011 70% vseh investicij), prav tako pa je regija naš drugi najpomembnejši partner z vidika mednarodne menjave in sicer takoj za EU. V regiji so namreč prisotna vsa večja slovenska podjetja, majhna in srednje velika podjetja, ki se osredotočajo na tržne niše, pa prav tako povečujejo svojo prisotnost. “

      Življenje vabi vse v ustvarjalni proces. V sodelovanje in skupno kreacijo današnjega in jutrišnjega dne. Spoznanje, da le povezani, lahko kandidiramo za posle, ki omogočajo dovolj dodane vrednosti za razvoj in blaginjo, presega politične okvirje. Lepo je sicer bilo videti in slišati politični vrh Zahodnega Balkana v skupni okrogli mizi, a nam je hkrati dal tudi jasno sporočilo, da brez trdnega gospodarstva, nimajo nobene prave veljave v globalni skupnosti.

      Meni osebno je srečanje pomagalo do naslednjih dodatnih spoznanj:
      1. v globalni skupnosti obstajajo trgi, ki, izven neposrednega, prevladujočega anglo-saškega vpliva, pomembno prispevajo k novi gospodarski podobi sveta: Rusija, deli Bližnjega Vzhoda, Afrika, JV Evropa,
      2. na Balkanu je možen razcvet dveh poslovnih modelov: prvega, ki temelji na konceptu tranzita (telekomunikacije, energetika, promet, ipd) in drugega, ki temelji na sistemskih pristopih v odnosu do ključnih kupcev (gradbeništvo, kmetijstvo, turizem, bančništvo, področja, ki potrebujejo dinamične, izobražene, multijezikovno usposobljene ljudi, ipd.),
      3. skupna zgodovina in balkanski prostor so stkali med ljudmi nevidne vezi, ki na osnovi gospodarskih potreb in tržnih priložnosti nosijo v sebi velik potencial kreacije in uspeha. Naša moč je v neverjetni prilagodljivosti, iznajdljivosti, strokovnosti in iskreni želji po dobrem življenju. Še vedno so objemi med nami pristni, strastni in še vedno nosijo občutek domačnosti, varnosti in zaupanja. Globina slovanske duše, njena izjemna intuicija, strast in empatija so kvalitete današnjega čas. Zato je čas za balkanska partnerstva na temelju gospodarskih interesov in poslovne odličnosti, 
      4. v globalni ekonomiji so za uspeh ključnega pomena šibke mreže, partnerstva, ki temeljijo na potrebi, na konkretnih projektih, dopolnjujočih sposobnostih in preprosti želji po poslovnem uspehu in ustvarjanju družbene blaginje.

      Regija, ki je več desetletij živela močno medsebojno povezana v skupni državi, je posledično razvijala med seboj kompatibilne in dopolnjujoče se kompetence in kapacitete, za njihov pomemben del to velja še danes. Regijo zato moramo znati v dobro vseh ponovno odpreti samo sebi, s tem pa bomo tudi na evropski in globalni ravni postali bolj upoštevanja vreden faktor. 2. Samit 100 Business Leaderjev JV Evrope je pretekli teden postavil in nadgradil pomembne temelje v tej smeri. Najbolj pomembno je, da se sedaj usmerimo v inovativno koncipiranje in realizacijo konkretnih zavezništev denimo v gradbeništvu, ki se že uspešno povezuje v okviru gradbenega konzorcija Feniks, pa v infrastrukturi, energetiki, turizmu…Skupaj smo zagotovo lahko močnejši.

      Naši umetniki, športniki in znanstveniki vedno znova dokazujejo, da je naš način razmišljanja in delovanja izjemno uspešen. Čas je, da to na polno manifestira tudi gospodarstvo. Feniks, kot mreža gradbenih podjetij, ki je kot prva izšla iz dogodka Sumit100, utira optimistično pot gospodarskim povezovanjem Zahodnega Balkana. Naj jim sledi še več gospodarskih navez. Čas je pravi.
      Mednarodni gradbeni konzorcij Feniks, ki združuje preko 45 odličnih slovenskih, srbskih in bosansko-hercegovskih podjetij, z več kot 5 milijardami letnega obsega in preko 30.000 zaposlenimi, je bil ustanovljen konec januarja lani v Beogradu. Pobudnika projekta sta bila srbski PSP Farman in slovenska korporacija Hidria. Že lani so se sprva konzorciju slovenskih in srbskih podjetij pridružila podjetja iz BiH, prav na samitu100 pa se je konzorcij okrepil še s pomembnimi črnogorskimi partnerji. Gre za projekt, katerega namen je predvsem skupen nastop na tretjih trgih (s poudarkom na Rusiji oz. generalno Vzhodni in Jugovzhodni Evropi in Bližnjem in Srednjem Vzhodu).
      Projekt Feniks ima za celotno regijo velik potencial, na kar kaže tudi odločna podpora najvidnejših predstavnikov oblasti vseh sodelujočih držav. V prvem letu delovanja so številne družbe Feniksa že sodelovale na ruskih projektih Feniksovih srbskih partnerjev, zlasti pri Univerzah in hotelih v Sočiju in pri izgradnji znanstveno raziskovalnega središča Skolkovo v Moskvi. V drugem letu delovanja pa Feniks prehaja v konkretne razgovore za projekte v Severni Afriki in na Bližnjem vzhodu. Velik uspeh predstavlja tudi nedavna pridobitev projekta izgradnje stadiona CSKA v Moskvi za svetovno prvenstvo v nogometu leta 2018 s strani PSP Farmana v vrednosti preko 160 milijonov evrov. 
      “Narod si bo pisal sodbo sam, ne vrag mu je ne bo in ne talar” je zapisal veliki slovenski pisatelj Ivan Cankar; svetovljan, ki je siciral slovensko dušo do obisti, jo provociral in ji kazal ogledalo ves čas svojega aktivnega življenja.  Potrebujemo tovrstna ogledala. Da razumemo kdo smo. Da vedno znova lahko iščemo priložnosti za  svoje izboljšave in napredek na osnovi lastne identitete.

      Ponosna sem na svoj narod, na regijo v kateri sem odraščala in iz katere uspešno prodiram v svet. Zaradi lastnih izkušenj in načina razmišljanja prostora. Moč pa mi daje neprestan strokovni napredek.
      Vision: We hold multinational inspiration in our hearts
      Mission: West Balkan Region – the model of emerging thrivable societies
      Vem, da zmoremo! Slovenija, Zahodni Balkan, Balkan in JV Evropa. A brez aktivne vloge bo vse ostal le potencial.  Hvala organizatorjem za povabilo. Hvala za priložnost, da smo lahko še posebej izpostavili pomen medijev, inovacijskega komuniciranja in novinarstva, za uspešen preboj Zahodnega Balkana na globalnih trgih. Naj se iskri naprej in naj naše sposobnosti dobijo polet.

                  Z intuicijo do inspiracije    
        Izkušnje zadnjih tednov so sooblikovale vsebino, ki jo predstavljamo v novem Aktualno 2.0. Upam, da vam bodo koristile:
        • ko boste sprejemali odločitve o svojih izobraževanjih in usposabljanjih,
        • ko boste dvomili v ideje, s katerimi se boste zjutraj zbudili, jih ujeli na sprehodu, ali jih začutili med pogovorom s poslovnimi partnerji,
        • ko bo vaš pogled drugačen od vsega kar ste slišali do takrat,
        • ko vam ne bo jasno, kaj drugim ni jasno.
        V okviru Vibacomovih treningov in kasneje na Upravnem odboru InCo gibanja, smo povezali dolgoletne izkušnje s področja razvoja inovacijskih ekosistemov in izkušnje zadnjih dveh let s področja razumevanja in razvoja intuicije, v nov poslovni model: celosten model razvoja inovacije – 5I (inspiracija, ideja, invencija, inovacija, izboljšava) (Slika 0). Novi model pokaže na neposredno povezavo med nezavednim in zavednim delovanjem človeka, tako v procesu generiranja idej, odločanja, kot tudi trajnostnega inoviranja.


        Vir: InCo gibanje, 2013
        Ključna sporočila novega spoznanja so (Slika 1):
        • eden od možnih začetkov inovacijskega procesa je navdih (inspiracija), ki pride iz polja nezavednega (drugi lahko pride iz povsem racionalnega pristopa - analize),
        • naravno orodje človeka za povezavo z nezavednim je intuicija,
        • v posameznikovem polju nezavednega so vsa njegova pridobljena znanja, izkušnje, genetski spomin, impulzi trenutnega prostora, elementi kolektivne/planetarne/kozmične zavesti,
        • navdih je povezan s človekovo pripravljenostjo za drugačnost, za spremembo, za novo,
        • svojo odprtost za navdih lahko človek poveča s čiščenjem emocionalnih, duhovnih, energijskih in fizičnih blokad, z zavestnim povečevanjem senzibilnosti čutil, z razvojem polne prisotnosti v trenutku, v katerem se nahaja,
        • vsak korak inovacijskega procesa je hkrati tudi zanka, ki se dinamično vrača v vse prejšnje točke; vsak trenutek spremeni pogoje pod katerimi delujemo, se povezujemo, soustvarjamo, zato je ključno, da smo občutljivi na vse spremembe v nas in okoli nas in na osnovi njihovega vpliva dinamično prilagajamo naše aktivnosti.
        Vir: InCo gibanje, 2013

        Nadaljnji razvoj modela:

        1. na nivoju človeka: področje, ki smo ga ozavestili še dodatno okrepi potrebo po celostnem razvoju posameznika na vseh šestih ravneh njegovega vpenjanja v prostor (Slika 2), njegovega razvoja odnosov z vsem kar človek je in z vsem kar je okoli njega. Pri tem bo poseben izziv uravnotežen razvoj vseh 6 ravni, razumevanje več dimenzionalnega delovanja človeka in razvijanje okolja za njegov razcvet s spoštovanjem potreb ostalih deležnikov prostora/planeta.


         2. na nivoju organizacij/skupnosti: enako velja tudi za organizacije/skupnosti, ki so samostojna bitja in se tudi sama vpenjajo na različnih ravneh v prostor v katerem delujejo. Kot za posameznike, tudi za organizacije velja, da imajo svoje nezavedno. Le-to vpliva na sprejemanje odločitev vseh, ki se v njih povezujejo. Vpliva na njihovo inspiracijo, generiranje idej in oblikovanje inovacij, ki se, ali pa tudi ne, pojavljajo v organizacijskih okoljih. Za uspešno generiranje idej in tržno manifestacijo inovacij je zato pomembno vzdrževanje propustnih in aktivnih organizacijskih odnosov, ki vplivajo na pojav navdiha/inspiracije v dobro organizacije (Slika 3).  Vse to pa je odprto povabilo k oblikovanju novih struktur, poslovnih pristopov in metod dela, ki bodo korak po koraku upoštevala in integrirala nova spoznanja o tem kdo smo in s čim vse smo povezani, na kaj vse imamo vpliv in kaj vse ima vpliv na nas. Posledično sooblikujemo kolektivno zavest – grupumovanje (star slovenski izraz za skupno zdravo pametovanje), ki nas vse dela močnejše.

        3. na nivoju ostalih struktur: nova spoznanja samo še utrjujejo več dimenzionalno vpetost človeka, ne le v intimnem prostoru, ampak tudi v vseh prostorih v katerih se giblje, deluje, sobiva (na geografskih lokacijah, na nivoju države, plemena, interesne skupnosti, planeta). Značilnosti organizacije v odnosu do posameznika veljajo tudi za ta nivo (točka 2). Hkrati je potrebno dodatno izpostaviti povezave med strukturami samimi, ki med seboj ustvarjajo nove povezave in vpetosti. Vsaka struktura ima svoje zavedno in nezavedno polje preko katerega vstopa v odnos z ostalimi strukturami, posledično pa tudi s človekom (Slika 4).


        Zakaj so spoznanja koristna za model trajnostnega inoviranja:

        Za uspešen trajnostni razvoj inovacijskih ekosistemov so pomembne vsaj tri ključne stvari:
        • celosten pristop
        • dinamične strukture, ki zagotavljajo neprestano prilagajanje in ustvarjanje inovativnih prebojev na osnovi avtentičnosti, razumevanja potreb in ustvarjanja vrednosti v dobro deležnikov inovacijskega ekosistema in širše družbe
        • neprestan osebnostni razvoj ljudi, ki so-ustvarjajo v inovacijskem ekosistemu.
        Pri iskanju tovrstnih rešitev nas samo racionalni nivo našega dojemanja pusti na cedilu. Ne zmore visoke stopnje kompleksnosti uvidov in odločanja, ki so potrebni za manifestacijo trajnostno vzdržnih in pozitivnih inovacij. Zato smo dobili priložnost, da prebudimo še eno dodatno orodje, ki nam je naravno dano – intuicijo. Z njeno pomočjo dopolnimo razumsko odločanje, ga obogatimo in našim dejanjem damo trajnostnejšo vrednost, in sicer,  preko poglobljenega dialoga na nivoju  posameznika ali grupumovanja na nivoju struktur.

        Kje so navedena spoznanja koristna in neposredno uporabljiva:
        1. pri oblikovanju vizij razvoja (medstrukturno sodelovanje, participativni modeli)
        2. pri razvoju novih produktov, storitev, rešitev (razumevanje potreb in obnašanj, oblikovanje ponudbe, ki ustvarja vrednost za ciljni segment strank)
        3. pri oblikovanju marketinških strategij (vzpostavljanje odkritega, neposrednega stika s tržnimi nišami, razumevanje resničnih potreb, posredovanje informacij v obliki, ki jo tržna niša razume)
        4. pri oblikovanju timov (razumevanje več dimenzionalnosti posameznikov in iskanju zmagovalne kombinacije za katere odgovornost naj prevzame generator ideje oz. vodja projekta)
        5. pri vzpostavljanju odnosov z dobavitelji znanja, materiala, polizdelkov, ipd. (razumevanje skupnega poslanstva in tržnih potreb, ki jih nagovarjamo)
        6. pri oblikovanju lastne identitete in razumevanju neposrednih in posrednih posledic, ki jih s svojimi dejanji ustvarjamo na vseh ravneh svoje pojavnosti in vpetosti.

        Na koncu naj še enkrat poudarim: intuicija je pomemben kanal, orodje za dostop do nezavednih informacij, ki skupaj z zavednimi pripeljejo do pravih odločitev. Nezavedne informacije hote ali nehote vplivajo na sprejemanje naših odločitev, na pojav inspiracije (navdiha, uvida), na celostno, sistemsko delovanje. Upam, da vam bodo spoznanja pomagala pri oblikovanju stabilnega in trajnostno naravnanega okolja ter koristnih inovacij. Včasih se lahko znajdemo v slepi ulici, včasih imamo občutek, da ničesar ne razumemo. A vse to so le dokazi, da se učimo in ko prebijemo prag frustracij, se odpre novo polje, v katerem lahko uspešno delujemo. Namen današnjega prispevka je bil osvetliti še eno dodatno dimenzijo pri iskanju odgovorov na številna vprašanja, ki se nam pojavljajo tako v zasebnem, poslovnem in družbenem življenju. Naj bodo koraki plodni, radostni, s težo in globino vpliva.

                  Prostor in intuicija   
        Ko smo v okviru  InCo gibanja v lanskem letu v prostor umestili celostno odločanje in vlogo intuicije v njem, smo že na začetku začutili, da smo odprli pomembno temo, ki je skupna različnim področjem dela in ustvarjanja. Odnosi med znanjem, izkušnjami in nezavednim  ter njihovimi vplivi na naše odločanje, percepcijo, dojemanje in sprejemanje, so neizmeren vir navdiha, idej, invencij in inovacij. Že samo zavedanje obstoja teh odnosov in njihove pojavnosti v različnih prostorih, nas bogati, nam pomaga razumeti kdo smo in kako se gibljemo in odzivamo. Naš današnji gost neprestano raziskuje prostore, ki nastajajo v odvisnosti od elementov, ki ga definirajo. Odkriva njihova obnašanja, njihove vplive na naše dojemanje in razloge, ki pripeljejo do njihovega nastanka. To je Orova zgodba. Dovolite, da vas prevzame in navdahne. Morda bo tudi zaradi njegovih besed vaš svet bogatejši.

        V: Kdo je Or Ettlinger?
        Or:
        Navdušujejo me kompleksni sistemi in odkrivanje preprostih načel v njihovem ozadju – vzeti nekaj, kar se zdi kompleksno, in to pojasniti, narediti dostopno in uporabno. Gre za način razumevanja sveta, ki ga nasploh zasledujem tako v življenju kakor na različnih področjih mojega zanimanja: v arhitekturi, umetnosti in računalniški tehnologiji, pri ustvarjalnosti, lepoti, digitalnih podobah, v kulturi, pri dizajnu, v osebnem razvoju, glasbi in človeški naravi … Na vsakem od teh področij sem lahko vedno tudi hkrati izvajalec ali teoretik, učitelj ali študent oziroma celo več od teh vlog istočasno. Na nekaterih področjih sem že dosegel dokazane uspehe, na drugih pa še delam na tem.
        Kratek življenjepis
        Dr. Or Ettlinger je vizualni umetnik, teoretik in docent na Fakulteti za arhitekturo Univerze v Ljubjani. Njegovo delo leži na stičišču umetnosti, arhitekture in računalnikov.

        V: Kaj vam pomeni »prostor«?
        Or:
        Prostor je kontekst, v katerem se pojavijo stvari, je ozadje, ki jim omogoči, da se prikažejo in postanejo to, kar so.

        V: Naslov vaše knjige je Arhitektura virtualnega prostora. Kaj vam pomeni virtualni prostor? Kako bi ga opredelili?
        Or:
        S tem vprašanjem sem se dolgo časa ukvarjal in pri tem tako študijsko kakor praktično predelal različna povezana področja. Na koncu je to pripeljalo do razumevanja virtualnega prostora, ki se precej razlikuje od večine splošno sprejetih tovrstnih pogledov. Virtualnega prostora namreč ne obravnavam v povezavi z računalniško tehnologijo, niti ga ne vidim kot še enega sveta imaginacije in mi ne pomeni splošnega načina govorjenja o stvareh, ki sicer obstajajo, a so precej neotipljive. Vsi ti so lahko koristni kot metafore, toda sam sem želel najti konsistentnejšo opredelitev tega, kar naj bi nakazovale te metafore.

        Zato sem virtualni prostor namesto tega začel prvenstveno obravnavati kot vizualni pojav: vizualni svet, ki ga doživljamo in je ločen tako od fizičnega prostora okoli nas kakor od mentalnega prostora naše domišljije. Ali z drugimi besedami, gre za slikovne podobe različnih vrst – slike, fotografije, TV, filmi, video igrice, itd. Kadarkoli pogledamo kakšno od njih, se v osnovi ponovi isto: gledamo fizičen predmet z določenim vzorcem na njem, vendar vzorca sploh ne zaznamo. Pač pa preko vzorca vidimo prostor in predmete, za katere se zdi, da stojijo znotraj, v  tem prostoru. Prostor, ki ga tako vidimo, čeprav tam fizično ne obstaja, je tisto, kar pojmujem kot virtualni prostor.

        V: Kje vidite glavne razlike med fizičnim prostorom in virtualnim prostorom? Kaj so dejavniki razlikovanja?
        Or:
        No, kot prvo, prvi prostor JE fizičen, drugi pa je samo VIDETI fizičen, čeprav ni. Toda samo bistvo virtualnega prostora je v  tem, da mora, vsaj deloma, poustvariti videz fizičnosti, da sploh lahko obstaja. Drugače je vzorec, skozi katerega virtualni prostor vidimo, zgolj vzorec in ne postane nič drugega.

        Seveda fizični prostor tudi vsebuje nas – fizična živa bitja – virtualni prostor pa ne. V virtualni prostor ne moremo stopiti dobesedno (kljub številnim tovrstnim fantazijam v popularni kulturi), toda mentalno se nedvomno z njim lahko ukvarjamo na številnih ravneh. Mnoge vrste umetnosti so skozi stoletja poskušale najti način, kako ustvariti tovrstno izkušnjo. Nikakor ne velja, da so se te reči pojavile šele nedavno, v času računalniške tehnologije, kot se morda zdi danes.

        V: Kaj pa slikarska umetnost ali novi mediji? Za kakšno izkušnjo gre?
        Or:
        Med starimi in novimi mediji tozadevno ne vidim razlike. Gre le za različne tehnike uresničevanja istega učinka. Napeto platno s skrbno nanesenim barvnim vzorcem nam lahko omogoči, da skozi njega vidimo nekaj, česar ni na samem platnu. Na podoben način lahko na zid projeciran digitalno ustvarjen razpored barvnih točk doseže povsem isti učinek. Oba medija nas lahko tako mentalno kakor emocionalno zaposlita na isti način. Seveda gre pri obeh za povsem drugačne tehnične značilnosti in kulturni izvor, zato so upravičeno predmet različnih teoretičnih pristopov. Toda v obeh primerih vizualne upodobitve je rezultat izkušnja prostora, kjer fizično ni nobenega prostora.

        V: Ali menite, da imata fizični prostor in virtualni prostor podoben učinek na ljudi?
        Or:
        Da in ne. Fizični prostor ima zelo neposreden, takojšen učinek na nas. Ne moremo ne biti v fizičnem prostoru. Toda njegove prisotnosti se lahko zavedamo do različne mere. Virtualni prostor pomeni drugačno vrsto prisotnosti in čeprav se v njem ne nahajamo dobesedno, nas izkustveno še vedno zaobjema v večji ali manjši meri. Na primer, ko gledamo film, svojo pozornost iz fizičnega prostora, v katerem se nahajamo, aktivno scela preusmerimo na lokacije, predstavljene v virtualnem prostoru.

        Toda tudi ko na zasneženi ulici stopimo mimo reklamnega panoja s sliko palme na plaži v soncu, se, ne glede na to, ali se tega zavedamo ali ne, naša ulica vizualno razširi in vključi tudi virtualni prostor. Virtualen ni v smislu, da prikazana plaža nikjer ne obstaja, ampak da prav tukaj fizično ne obstaja. Seveda je mogoče, da v resnici točno v tej obliki ne obstaja nikjer, toda dovolj je že to, da nas mentalno zaposli in se nas vsaj do določene mere živo dotakne. Če oglaševalcem uspe njihov namen, nas celo zbode, da se namesto tukaj zdaj tam ne nahajamo tudi fizično.

        V:  Kako pa je z odzivom ljudi? Zakaj se v različnih prostorih počutimo bolje ali slabše. Ali arhitekti upoštevajo občutljivost ljudi?
        Or:
        Nekateri arhitekti se tem stvarem posvečajo bolj, drugi manj. Eni se pri oblikovanju stavbe posvečajo predvsem tehnološko ustrezni konstrukciji, druge bolj zanima funkcionalna učinkovitost, tretje pa kulturni vtis, za katerega so prepričani, da ga morajo podati. So tudi taki, ki nedvomno upoštevajo človekovo počutje v zgradbi ali izven nje. Predvsem v bolj tradicionalnih formah arhitekture je bilo upoštevanje udobnosti življenjskega prostora inherenten del oblikovanja, zato ga ni bilo treba zavestno upoštevati v tolikšni meri kot danes. Toda zaradi drugih zadev, ki so jim začeli dajati prednost, je bil v zadnjih sto letih ta nekoč samoumeven vidik oblikovanja potisnjen vstran in mnogi arhitekti so ga preprosto prezrli.

        V: Kaj mislite, katere prvine imajo največji vpliv na razmerje med prostorom in ljudmi? Morda nam lahko kaj več poveste o svojih izkušnjah pri projektu, ki ste ga izvedeli s svojimi študenti in temelji na znanstveno fantastičnem romanu, po katerem ste oblikovali arhitekturo za film po omenjeni predlogi.
        Or:
        Projekt je temeljil na knjigi Isaaca Asimova Konec večnosti, zgodbi, ki se na Zemlji v prihodnosti odvija v različnih obdobjih med leti 7000 in 250000. Gre za čas, ki je tako oddaljen od našega, da nič iz zgodovine ali današnjih špekulacij o prihodnosti ni relevantnega za oblikovanje v tistem času. Poleg tega se deli zgodbe dogajajo povsem izven časa. Menim, da je bil to skrajen oblikovalski izziv.

        V: Kako pa se sploh lotite takega projekta? Katere prvine uporabite v enačbi?
        Or:
        Takega projekta ni mogoče izvesti brez velikega obrata v načinu dojemanja, saj študente šele ta lahko popelje onkraj obstoječih vzorcev mišljenja. Zaradi tega je tudi tako zanimiv in vzgojen. Ena od glavnih težav pri študiju arhitekture – ali vsake druge ustvarjalne poklice – je, da je večina izobraževalnih programov osredotočena na to, kako izdelati uresničljiv projekt. Precej manj pozornosti pa je ponavadi posvečeno samim postopkom ustvarjanja idej in vizij, ki ženejo projekt. Namen projekta je bil izzvati domišljijo študentov in okrepiti njihovo sposobnost, da imajo ves čas pred sabo mentalno sliko nastajajočega projekta.

        V našem konkretnem primeru je šlo prej za iskanje dejavnikov, ki vplivajo na arhitekturo različnih kultur in obdobij, kakor pa zgolj za osredotočenje na vizualen vtis oziroma 'slog'. Zato smo najprej preštudirali različna obdobja in prostore v človeški zgodovini, proučili njihove glavne vrednote in takratno razumevanje vloge arhitekture. Potem so študenti na podlagi Asimove knjige začeli sami izumljati vrednote različnih kultur, ki se pojavljajo v zgodbi, in oblikovali njim ustrezno razumevanje, čemu služi arhitektura in kako se povezuje z njimi. Od tu dalje pa je domišljija študentov kar poletela …

        Source: Or  Ettlinger

        V: Nam lahko zaupate kakšno od teh prvin?
        Or:
        Ne gre za formulo. Ta konkreten postopek lahko na primer dojamemo, če poskušamo razumeti, zakaj je arhitektura v našem času takšna, kakršna je. Videti sebe od zunaj je najtežja naloga, toda če današnji čas primerjamo, recimo, z obdobjem izpred dveh tisoč let, bomo takoj videli, da danes vladar ni ne Bog ne cesar, temveč ekonomija. Ko govorimo o vsakdanjih stanovanjskih blokih ali nezaslišano razkošnih hotelih, je jasno, da oboje žene ekonomija – drugače jih sploh ne bi zgradili.

        Poleg tega pa živimo v času, ki je scela osredotočen na posameznikov 'jaz' in se posveča samo zadovoljevanju njegovih potreb in kapric. Orodje, ki to omogoča, je tehnologija. To so torej nekatere od bistvenih prvin, ki določajo sodobno civilizacijo in s tem tudi arhitekturo: ekonomija, individualnost, tehnologija. Če bi si radi nazorno zamislili oddaljeno prihodnost, ne da bi spremenili danes prevladujoč način mišljenja, potem bo vse, karkoli bomo ustvarili, še vednovideti kot produkt poznega 20. ali zgodnjega 21. stoletja.

        V: Ali menite, da obstaja zveza med oblikovanjem prostora in intuicijo? Z intuicijo mislim način, da nekaj dojamemo, ne da bi se zavestno zavedali postopka, kako se je to zgodilo?
        Or:
        Nedvomno. Naša zmožnost, da svet dojemamo onkraj verbalne analize in čutnih vtisov, je del tega, da smo ljudje. Stopnjo te naše zmožnosti prav tako določa prostor, v katerem živimo. Ali ta vzpodbuja ta način dojemanja ali ga zavira? Vzemimo za primer običajno pisarniško zgradbo v nasprotju z gorsko kočo. Vsaka od njiju na plan prikliče povsem drugačen vidik tega, kdo smo.

        V: Proti koncu vaše knjige se zahvalite mnogim navdihujočim prostorom, kjer ste ure in ure raziskovali. Knjižnice, kavarne, čitalnica v Narodni in univerzitetni knjižnici, in celo Plečnikove klopi v parku … Kako bi opisali svoj odnos do teh prostorov?
        Or:
        Priskrbeli so mi kontekst, v katerem sem lahko začel ustvarjati, mi dali duševni mir in me navdihnili. V njih sem začutil, da sem sam svoj človek, poln svojih idej, omogočili so mi, da sem se lahko zbral in samo ustvarjal.

        V: Kaj je posebnega v teh prostorih, da to omogočijo?
        Or:
        Kot prvo, ne vem. Gre za intuitivno občutje. Preprosto začutim prostore, ki me navdihujejo, zato grem raje tja, ne pa drugam. Če me prosite, da natančneje premislim, potem lahko začnem iskati razlage, o katerih lahko razpravljamo na treh ravneh. Prvič, v takšnem prostoru verjetno vlada določeno ravnotežje med naravnim in umetnim, gre za določena razmerja, izbor materialov in tako dalje. To so tehnični dejavniki. Druga raven je, kaj vse lahko ti tehnični dejavniki prikličejo. To se dogaja na ravni določenih občutij, na primer, sproščenosti, občutka varnosti, ali močnega občutka, da si živ. Tretja raven je, kaj lahko takšna izkušnja vzbudi pri različnih ljudeh, na primer, bodisi ustvarjalnost in produktivnost (v mojem primeru) bodisi ravnodušje in dolgčas (v primeru nekaterih drugih, morda).

        V: Kje je po vašem mnenju naslednji veliki izziv v arhitekturi?
        Or:
        V preteklosti je med izzive spadalo poskrbeti za domovanja množic, razviti cenejše in hitrejše gradbene tehnologije, bolj nedavno pa začeti graditi energetsko varčne hiše, ki ne škodujejo okolju. Mislim, da bo naslednji izziv za arhitekturo, kako vse te pomembne dosežke združiti z bolj človeškimi kvalitetami, ki jih je starejša arhitektura imela a jih je izgubila, ker je poskušala zadovoljiti te zahteve. Obstaja že nekaj neuspelih poskusov, da bi uresničili ta pričakovanja, zaradi katerih je vse skupaj postalo še toliko težje, a prepričan sem, da gre za izziv, ki ga je kljub vsemu vredno zasledovati.

        V preteklih formah arhitekture je prisotno nekaj, kar nagovarja našo intuicijo, prebuja naše čute in izraža trajnost – teh razsežnosti pogosto ni mogoče najti v sodobni arhitekturi. Ne gre za vidni slog ali oblikovne prvine, temveč za bistvene kvalitete, ki jih utelešajo. Ne vidim pa razloga, da arhitektura v prihodnje ne bi iznašla načina, kako spet združiti te izgubljene kvalitete z dosežki preteklega stoletja in omogočiti, da bi učinkovali kot celota – ne le v primeru določenih arhitektov, ampak kot splošno uveljavljena praksa.



        Hvala Or. Se že veselimo raziskovanja te teme z vami na naslednjem InCo dogodku.

                      Real Madrid Transfer News: Danilo Offer from Juventus Reportedly Rejected   

            Real Madrid have reportedly turned down a €15 million bid plus add-ons for Danilo from Juventus because it is around half of the full-back's valuation.

            According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t AS), Los Blancos paid €31.5 million for the Brazilian two years ago and are hoping to recoup as much of that as possible by receiving a figure close to the €30 million mark.

            The transfer fee is seemingly all that is left to agree on, as Tuttosport reported the Bianconeri have agreed personal terms with the player (h/t AS).

            BeIN Sports previously indicated the 25-year-old was determined to stay put at the Santiago Bernabeu:

            Danilo has struggled to hold down a starting role in the Spanish capital since arriving and is behind Dani Carvajal in the pecking order.

            He has not been particularly convincing, either, having failed to replicate the form he showed at FC Porto that earned him his move to the Spanish capital. 

            That said, he did produce a fairly strong end to the season, with manager Zinedine Zidane rotating his side during the latter half of the campaign.

            The Brazilian made just 17 appearances in La Liga last year, but he won 36 tackles and 28 headed duels, and he made 37 interceptions and 42 clearances, according to Squawka.

            Danilo also created 18 chances, a fair return for a full-back, demonstrating his ability to contribute going forward.

            Juventus are in the market for a right-back earlier than expected following Dani Alves' departure halfway through his two-year deal at the club. It seems they're prepared to sign Danilo despite the limitations it would impose on the rest of their summer business, per football writer David Amoyal:

            The Real Madrid man isn't at the same level as his compatriot, though Alves wasn't always at his best during his time in Turin—particularly in the first half of the campaign—before he sprang to life in the UEFA Champions League.

            Juventus will hope the move can kickstart Danilo's career, provided they can reach an agreement over a fee with Los Blancos.

                      Abstraction in reverse: how Latin American Modernists changed how we see

            The art historian Alexander Alberros new book, Abstraction in Reverse, which has just been published by the University of Chicago Press, offers a fresh perspective on how Latin American artists have altered our perceptions of Modern art. The central argument of the book is that abstract artists like Julio Le Parc, Toms Maldonado and Jess Rafael Soto, among others, made works that granted viewers a fuller stake in interpretation, which was no longer a matter of passive reception.


            These artists "get rid of the 're-' in representation," Alberro says. "The dynamic of connection is between the spectator and the object, who now takes a greater role." Importantly, Alberro says, the artwork was no longer made in advance and then exhibited; rather, it was produced at the very site where the art object and spectator meet, where object and subject come together.



            Latin American artists did not always have direct access to works by painters like Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, whom they admired. Often, works by artists like these were only available in black-and-white reproductions, which led to productive misreadings. In the first issue of the short-lived journal Arturo, which was founded in Buenos Aires in 1944, the artist Lidy Prati manually coloured in the reproductions of Mondrian's work. "When Soto finally saw a Mondrian, he realised he had it all wrong," Alberro says. "He thought Mondrian's work was completely smooth, with no visible brushstrokes and all straight lines meeting the edge of the canvas."



            One of the keys to Alberro's book is that he takes a comparative approach to artists from various Latin American countries, which is a shift from the traditional narrative. "Artists like Le Parc in Argentina and Soto in Venezuela were dismissed or couldn't find a place in their national context," he says. "So Modernism, rather than an imposition, gave these artists the ability to speak and be heard in their own national contexts."



            The below excerpt is taken from Alberro's introduction to the book.



            During the mid-20th century, Latin American artists working in several different cities altered the nature of Modern art in ways that have never been fully appreciated. In this critical transformation, arts relation to its public was reimagined, and the spectator was granted a more significant role than ever before in the realization of the artwork. These developments unfolded in the context of a complicated mediation of the particular form of abstract art that European Modernist artists Theo van Doesburg, Max Bill, and others referred to as Concrete art. This type of abstraction resonated in Latin America not only as a result of European Modernisms hegemony but also because it articulated an experience of Modernity that, despite all cultural differentiation, was becoming increasingly global. Initially, in the 1940s, Latin American artists with Modernist ambitions faithfully adopted Concretism, following their European predecessors in banishing all categories of description and imitation in favor of an emphasis on the sheer inventiveness of a simple operation generated entirely from the mind of the artist and communicated lucidly to the spectator. The task of the spectator in turn was to avoid any particularities that might obstruct her deindividualized gaze and to subordinate herself entirely and without interference to the logic of the art object, enabling the artworks import, its meaning, to be comprehended fully. Vision was the primary means for this model of spectatorship, and any phenomenological aspect of the experience was to be avoided.

            But Latin American artists would soon push Concrete art considerably beyond its established boundaries. Indeed, most of the artists whose work is central to Abstraction in Reverse created their distinctive identity by rejecting the a priori generalizations of pictorial or sculptural Concretism and offering an alternative to it. In their effort to imagine art as an integral aspect of an intellectual life that responded to their own particular concerns, they put aside the Concretist notion that the meaning of an artwork is established prior to its experience by the spectator in favor of a concept of artistic signification (as much as of consciousness and subjectivity) that assumes that meaning can be produced only in the site where the art object and spectator meet, where subject and object come together. I call the site of this intersection the aesthetic field of the artwork, defining it first and foremost as an area of possibility through which the spectator constructs meaning, and I focus this study on the structuring of artistic signification according to the interrelationship of subject and object within this aesthetic field. Consistent with their negation of idealist aesthetics, Latin American post-Concrete artists interwove the specificities of the material object and the context of its exhibition and display with the spectators subjective experience within the aesthetic field in ways that thread the work of art back into the fabric of the world.

            By reshaping the aesthetic field to posit the spectator not as a disembodied receptor of optical stimuli but as an active subject engaged in a new kind of attentiveness and tactile encounter, post-Concrete artists opened the way for new modes of consciousness and experience, as well as new models of subject-object relations. My thesis, in brief, is that in breaking in various ways with the core dictums of Concrete art, Latin American artists in the mid-twentieth century reimagined the relationship of art to its public and produced artworks to challenge prevailing notions of the interconnection between subject and world, perceiver and perceived, objective reality and subjective experience. In this new con-ceptualization, art was no longer considered entirely autonomous and internally coherent but relationally dynamic, prompting the imaginative engagement of the spectator and producing meaning through this very relationality. The rationales underlying the generation of this art varied, as did the degrees and conditions of subjective agency it actualized, but the new post-Concrete art in Latin America fundamentally reconfigured the aesthetic field and Modernist spectatorship more generally, and the particular forms these new modes of sensibility took are the primary concern of this book.

            Along with a realignment of the aesthetic field and the development of new conventions of spectatorship, ambitious mid-20th-century Latin American art manifested a new type of artistic subjectivity. For reasons that are as much political and cultural as they are aesthetic, these artists discarded the traditional, artisan-like exercise of manufacturing the artwork in favor of presenting catalytic objects or ensembles that encompass, and in fact require, the spectator for their completion. If, as noted a moment ago, Concrete arts form of spectatorship closed the art object in upon itself, conveying an idea or act carried out by the artist at an earlier moment, then the importance of the new post-Concrete work lies in the context of spectatorship. Henceforth the artist performs no longer as a creator for contemplation, but as an instigator for creation, as Brazilian artist Hlio Oiticica put it. In this new condition, the function of the artist is limited to the presentation of formal elements or situations to be constructed into artworks in the context of the aesthetic field. This process of configuration and the link between forms of artistic signification and forms of spectatorship are central theoretical concerns of this book. My argument is that meaning does not reside in the intent of the artist, nor in the essence of the art object, nor in its site of display, nor even in the consciousness of the spectator engaging with the work. Meaning is constructed in the aesthetic field, a space that includes all of these elements as well as writings and statements made by the artists and others about the work. In this respect, the aesthetic field differs from the logic of what philosopher Jacques Rancire refers to as an emancipatory practice of art in which the centered subject is fully capable of seizing hold of aesthetic experiences, and constitutes instead something similar to what philosopher Michel Foucault describes as an apparatus of a system of relations that is established among a set of components. My goal in what follows is to study what Foucault called the interplay of shifts of position and modifications of function among the elements that structure the work of mid-20th-century Latin American artists, keeping in mind that with each shift or modification the hierarchy of these constituent parts is readjusted or reworked. Moreover, insofar as the aesthetic field as an apparatus is always inscribed in what Foucault refers to as a play of power, it will be important to comprehend some of the reasons that led to this reconfiguration in the mid-20th century.

            Then, too, the aesthetic field as an apparatus implies a process of sub-jectification; that is to say, it produces its subject, it orients the gestures, behaviors, opinions, or discourses of living beings into subject positions. This is what separates it from sociologist Pierre Bourdieus framework of a field of cultural production. Although both concepts theorize a field as hierarchical, the goal of Bourdieus analysis is to understand the ways in which the subjects and institutions that specialize in creating, displaying, distributing, and evaluating art interact, and in particular how the fully formed subject negotiates the social and economic context of art at a given time and in a particular place. The ensemble of relations that structure the aesthetic field that I propose includes the context singled out by Bourdieu. But I understand the spectatorial subject as a position that is itself formed in the aesthetic field. This approach requires paying greater attention than does Bourdieu to the way the dynamic system of relations established among the elements of the aesthetic field are configured, as well as to the spectators interaction with the formal or material techniques that actually make art.

            The turn to action and participation in the context of spectatorship in Latin American art also marks a shift to an entirely different mode of social engagement of the artwork. The model of spectatorship that develops as artists attempt to reintegrate art into the social realm by asserting its relationship with the viewing subject turns outward into the third and fourth dimensions. This, in essence, is at the core of what I refer to as abstraction in reverse. To quote a 1960 text by Ferreira Gullar, a Brazilian critic whose early writings are important to my investigation, post-Concrete artists, in their attempt to reconnect the picture plane with paintings need for spatialization, invert traditional perspective and create an outward three-dimensional virtual space powerful enough to break away from (even abstract) representation. The gap between the ostensible permanence of the art object and the ephemerality of the spectators interaction with it accordingly narrows and in some cases collapses altogether. The artwork ceases to be a stationary object accessible to immediate and exhaustive viewing (that is, seen in its entirety) and invites an embodied reception located in space and time. The artistic experience becomes a transitional phenomenon, prompting the spectator to relate with others and with an environment that surrounds and envelops her. But rather than rest in the moment of desublimation, the spectator is induced by some of the artworks produced in this manner to see herself both as an integral subject and as an object of the perception of others, creating new, liberating spaces of sociability. Gone is the myth of the singular artist in absolute control of her creative production. Gone too is the traditional understanding of the ontology of art in which the artwork and its conceptualized essence stand apart from the world and unchanging for all time. In place of these singularities, these artworks posit a relational identity and set of processual operations that are not atavistic but disjointed, having multiple roots, facets, and directions. The subjective agency and creativity of the spectator become paramount in the realization of the artwork.

            Un año más, los organizadores del certamen que premia a las mejores fotografías realizadas con un iPhone nos presentan los ganadores de su concurso para demostrarnos que no hace falta una gran cámara para hacer buenas fotos y que lo más importante es la creatividad del fotógrafo. Os mostramos las fotos ganadoras de los iPhone Photography Awards 2017.

            Y aunque estemos de acuerdo en que sí, que efectivamente la mejor cámara es la que uno tiene, lo cierto es que tampoco es que el conocido terminal de Apple nos parezca el mejor dispositivo para hacer fotos. A pesar de lo cual, está claro que, al margen de con qué estén hechas, las imágenes del concurso son en términos generales de una gran belleza.

                      CASA Festival Joins Forces with Southwark Playhouse and Arcola Theatre   

            For its tenth anniversary year, CASA Festival joins forces with two of London's leading off-West End theatres Southwark Playhouse and Arcola Theatre to offer London audiences eight weeks of brilliant Latin American theatre and culture.


            The festival kicks off at Arcola with Sergio Blanco's highly-acclaimed Thebes Land returning for a five-week run, ahead of a five-week season of four acclaimed international shows and three exciting new works by UK-based Latin American artists at Southwark Playhouse. Completing the programme are: a new verbatim piece about violence against Brazilian women and girls who live in the UK, a new theatre show about Peru and its food, and an eight-week festival of play readings of Latin America's most exciting contemporary voices.

            Daniel Goldman, Artistic Director of CASA, comments, I founded CASA in 2007 to build bridges between two incredible theatre cultures. The importance of international festivals that push our cultural boundaries has never been greater... We are delighted that we are celebrating our 10th year anniversary CASA 2017 at two of London's finest Off West End theatres and we can't wait to share this outstanding theatre programme with our existing audiences and new faces.

            Highlights for CASA 2017 include:

            Thebes Land by Sergio Blanco, Uruguay (6th September - 7th October)

            The smash-hit, critically-acclaimed Thebes Land - winner of Best Production at the 2016 Off West End awards - returns to Arcola for 5 weeks only. In this exhilarating multiple-reality drama, a playwright struggles to stage the incredible story of Martin Santos, a young man serving a life sentence for killing his father with a fork. As their interviews progress and opening night approaches, both of their worlds begin to unravel with shocking consequences. Will the truth be found, and can it be told? Trevor White and Alex Austin reprise their celebrated performances in Daniel Goldman's funny, ingenious production, performed inside a giant steel cage.

            Otelo by Viajeinmóvi, Chile (26th - 30th September)

            This fast, darkly funny and politically-charged puppetry reimagining of Shakespeare's classic tragedy focuses on Desdemona's murder to explore Latin America's horrific record of femicide. Taking the beginning of Act 4 of Shakespeare's play as its starting point, Iago and Emilia join forces and minds to manipulate full-size mannequins, disembodied heads and Othello's jealous heart with terrifying results. This is a masterclass in object theatre and making classics relevant today by Chile's leading puppetry company who return to CASA after their critically-acclaimed performances of Chef in 2011. Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.

            Osmo by Movicena, Brazil (3rd - 7th October)

            Based on a short story by one of Brazil's leading female writers Hilda Hilst, this is the tale of Osmo, a serial killer with literary pretensions. While he is sitting at home in the bath trying yet again to write his memoirs, he receives a phone call from a friend inviting him to a dance. As he prepares for another night that will end in sex and murder, Osmo tells his remarkable story and muses with glorious irony on the aesthetic power of horror. Directed by acclaimed Susan Damsceno, Osmo features a masterful performance by Donozeti Mazonas who delivers the show fully naked in an open aquarium. This hilarious and deliciously macabre show, described by the company as anti-stand-up, has shocked and rocked audiences across Brazil. Performed in Portuguese with English surtitles.

            UK Week (10th - 14th October, Southwark Playhouse)

            Discover three brand new full-length works by three of the UK's most exciting artists of Latin American heritage. The artists are still being selected so watch this space to find out who will be sharing their talents for audiences to discover for the first time. Previous UK artists include Vicky Araico Casas (UK/Mexico) who won a deserved Fringe First for her show Juana in a Million and Tamsin Clarke (UK/Venezuela) whose brilliant Manuelita won a Three Weeks Editors Award. Explore this year's UK Week to see what the next generation is up to.

            The only thing a great actress needs is a great play and the desire to succeed by Vaca 35, Mexico (18th - 21st October)

            Inspired by Genet's The Maids, two Mexican servants get ready for the day ahead. They cook breakfast, wash, dance and tell stories in a sharp and revelatory piece that shines a light on marginalisation, stereotyping and those who live in poverty with no hope of escaping their circumstances. Visceral, minimalist and beautifully performed, the production explores the fine line between humility and vanity, violence and vanity, while offering up the sacrifice of two very different female bodies to the audience gaze. Performed in Spanish with English surtitles

            Mendoza by Los Colochos, Mexico (24th - 28th October)

            An earthy, radical reimagining of Shakespeare's Macbeth set during Mexico's War of Independence in the early 19th Century. General Mendoza is returning to camp when he stumbles across an old witch who prophesises that he will come to lead the army. Convinced into action by his wife, he begins a chain of grisly murders that will come to seem endless. Inspired by Juan Rulfo and Elena Garro and deeply connected to the Mexican soil, this thrilling fast-paced and blood-soaked ensemble production exposes Mexico's downward spiral into the gruesome violence that exploded into the world's consciousness with the massacre of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa. Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.

            CASA is supported by an Arts Council England Grant for the Arts.


                      Liverpool Has A 'Reel' Brazilica Treat In Store This Summer   
            Brazilica organiser Liverpool Carnival Company is delighted to announce the return of its popular Film Festival for 2017, showcasing the best of Brazilian cinema.

            Film buffs will be able to enjoy 10 films celebrating Brazilian life and culture, which will be screened at various venues across the city started this week and runs until Tuesday 1 August, with all the movies FREE to attend. Just bring your own popcorn.

            The films cover all genres and include drama, biography and documentaries - definitely something for all the family.

            This year there is a special screening in conjunction with the Liverpool International Slavery Museum, as well as screenings in support of Liverpool Pride.

            Brazilica Film Festival started with a screening at Camp and Furnace of Marcel Camus' multi award-winning 1959 film Orfeu Negro or Black Orpheus, which recreated the classic Greek myth of Orpheus and Euridyce, transporting it to the favelas of Rio during the city's famous carnival. Orfeu Negro also introduced Bossa Nova to the world with its soundtrack.

            There is also drama aplenty in the award-winning, life-affirming Nise - O Coração da Loucura (Nise: The Heart of Madness) which is sure to prove one of the highlights of this year's festival when it is screened at FACT on Wednesday 19 July. A miracle happened in Brazil in the 1950s. Museums opened their doors to artists nobody had heard of, and critics fell over themselves to praise the work as some of the most important and beautiful paintings to explode on to the Brazilian art scene. But the paintings did not come from acclaimed established artists, but from patients who worked in a studio set up in a mental hospital by a psychiatrist, who persisted with her project despite being ridiculed by her colleagues.

            Other dramas in the festival are the romantic thriller Jonas, being shown at Unit 51 in the Baltic Creative on Saturday 22 July, which is set against a backdrop of Sao Paolo at Carnival time and won the Special Jury Prize at Rio Film Festival. It's a love story full of drama, romance and is also a real thriller.

            O Som Ao Redor (Neighbouring Sounds) is a thriller covering in a single city block in Recife, where the area's delicate surface calm is threatened when a private security firm is brought in to protect the residents from a spate of petty crime. This will be screened at the Old Edge Hill Library on Friday 28 July.

            Mundo Cão (In Dog's Words) is a 2016 film from director Marcus Jorge. Sao Paolo dogcatcher Santana's life is changed forever when the stray Rottweiler he picks up one day turns out to belong to a dishonest former police officer. See it at FACT on Wednesday 26 July.

            Film Festival Programmer Moulay Drissi commented: "The Brazilica Film Festival 2017 begins with a classic film and closes with a documentary in support of Liverpool Pride. This year's selection is filled with powerful drama, films, features and documentaries, including UK premieres.

            "There is an audience for every film and I am pleased that we are featuring such a high calibre and diverse film line-up. This festival provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy wonderful films celebrating Brazilian cinema in an environment that is all about community."

            Meanwhile documentary Black Brazil is being screened at Liverpool International Slavery Museum on Saturday 8 July. Brazil was the last country in the Americas to abolish slavery in 1888, and many continue to experience racial discrimination in Brazilian society today.

            The strong documentary theme continues in this year's Brazilica Film Festival on Friday 21 July with the UK premiere of Pitanga, which explores the aesthetical, political and existential journey of veteran actor Antonio Pitanga and the country's profound social and political revolutions during his 55-year career. It will be shown at Old Edge Hill Library.

            During the 1930s, a large group of 50 boys were taken from a Rio orphanage to work as slave labour on a farm whose owners did not hide their Nazi sympathising ideals. Two of the surviving boys, now in their 80s, tell their stories for the first time in Menino 23 (Boy 23), and you can see this important film on Tuesday 25 July at Old Edge Hill Library.

            Finally, Brazilica Film Festival is working in association with Liverpool Pride Festival to present two dramas.

            Director Marcelo Caetano's debut feature Corpo Elétrico (Electric Body) discusses racial and sexual diversity, with young Brazilians trying to explore their natures and identities in society that is making life increasingly difficult for LGBT+ people. You can watch this drama at Old Edge Hill Library on Thursday 20 July.

            The stigma attached to coming out as LGBT+ anywhere in the world remains difficult, and Rio's favelas are no exception. Documentary Favela Gay tells the story of 11 people, living in the slums of Rio. In their own words they tell their stories and highlight finding self-empowerment in the face of a society that does not empower them. The screening will be on Tuesday 1 August at Old Edge Hill Library.

                      CARICOM deals a blow to US plans for regime change in Venezuela    

            Venezuela’s Foreign Minister, Delcy Rodriguez, recently tweeted that the “US State Department deployed its ambassadors in the region to attack Venezuela. We come with renewed vigor to defeat them at the OAS.”

            So said, so done. The US Ambassador to Guyana, Perry Holloway, spewed the US false narrative regarding Venezuela in our local newspapers. US ambassadors in a number of other Caribbean countries did the same. It was a coordinated attempt to mislead the people of Guyana and the region about what is really happening in Venezuela, and to apply pressure on members of CARICOM (Caribbean Community) and the OAS (Organization of American States) to succumb to US calls for intervention, with the aim of overthrowing the democratically elected government of President Nicolas Maduro.

            US diplomats in Guyana, and for that matter throughout the Global South, are not diplomats in the strict sense of the word, and can be better described as political activists. They are constantly meddling in the internal affairs of the country they are stationed in, giving directives to the compliant neo-colonial regimes and actively undermining and destabilizing independent and anti-imperialist governments, such as the government in Venezuela.

            This latest US psych-ops came just after the May 31st meeting of the OAS in Washington DC and just prior to the June 19th OAS meeting in Cancun, Mexico, where CARICOM member states took a firm and united anti-interventionist position in relation to the current situation in Venezuela, delivering a resounding defeat to the interventionist approach advocated by the US, Mexico, Peru and Panama,

            Following the June 19th OAS meeting, Venezuela’s Foreign Minister, Delcy Rodriguez, said: “Today we come with the strength of our people who took to the streets to denounce the interventionism of the Organization of American States, we come with the force of the rain of our commander Hugo Chavez. Independence and sovereignty triumphed today over the United States of America, with its brutal pressure, with its gross extortion, with its maneuvers…”

            She added that the call for intervention encourages the “most violent, anti-democratic factions in our country,” and she thanked the Caribbean nations for their “deeply principled stand.”
            In his letter and articles, US ambassador, Perry Holloway, had the temerity to lecture Guyana and other member-states of the OAS about their obligation to democracy and human rights. He stated that: “The diverse family of nations in the Americas recognizes democracy is a part of our collective DNA. Sixteen years ago in Peru, we underscored this principle with the adoption of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, affirming the right of the peoples of the Americas to democracy and obligating our governments to defend that right.”

            I suggest that before US diplomats in the Caribbean and the Americas offer any criticism or advice to Venezuela or any member-state of the OAS on issues of democracy and human rights, they should first examine the behavior of their own government in relation to their undemocratic practices and policies, both internally and around the world, and their endless list of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

            Trump lays bare sham democracy

            The only positive aspect of Trump’s presidency is that it is exposing, once and for all, the sham that parades as US democracy and concern for human rights. The entirely undemocratic nature of US internal and foreign policy is clear to all in 2017. Even that minority of citizens on this planet who still held out some hope that the US resembled anything close to a democracy, have now seen through the façade. American political philosopher, Sheldon S. Wolin, in his brilliant work, Democracy Incorporated: Managed Democracy and the Specter of Inverted Totalitarianism, renders a devastating critique of US democracy and is a vital read for anyone who wishes to understand the latent fascism that underpins the politics of this Empire.

            Former US Attorney-General, Ramsay Clark, had this to say: “We’re not a democracy. It’s a terrible misunderstanding and a slander to the idea of democracy to call us that. In reality, we’re a plutocracy, a government by the wealthy.” He compared President George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler, and is on record as saying at the outset of the US invasion of Iraq, that it “will be genocide again,” adding that “the greatest crime since World War Two has been US foreign policy.”

            As I watch the hue and cry over Trump’s actions, it reminds me of Adolph Hitler’s response to Europe’s criticism of his policies. He told them: “I am only doing out in the open what you have been doing behind closed doors for centuries.”

            A meme that was circulated at the end of Obama’s presidency said it best: “Only in shallow, self-absorbed, privileged America could a leader drop 26,000 bombs on seven countries in a single year, and have citizens mourn the end of his term because he looked and sounded classy while doing it.”

            The illusion highlighted in this meme picks up on the public relations stunt that has become a hallmark of the US establishment, and which Sheldon Wolin identifies as a major feature of the “inverted totalitarianism” that exists in the US today. He describes “inverted totalitarianism” as a state of affairs where a small ruling elite (the 1%) have established an authoritarian society which benefits them exclusively. In this society, corporations have corrupted and subverted democracy, and natural resources and labor are seen as mere commodities to be exploited for huge profits.

            This status quo is maintained by a sophisticated propaganda machine that lulls the majority of people into apathy. Central to reinforcing this hegemon is a tightly controlled corporatized media, a mouthpiece for the establishment, that is constantly spinning fake news and false narratives, and emphasizing rabid consumerism, individualism and the politics of personality and sensationalism. Wolin, like Clark, compares modern day USA to Nazi Germany, pointing out that the form is different but the essence, that is, fascism, is the same.

            Friendly fascism

            Tirty-seven years ago, political scientist, Bertram Gross, coined the term “friendly fascism” and predicted the Orwellian reality we are witnessing today in the US. His thesis converges with the conclusions reached by Wolin, Clark and others.

            In his farewell address at the end of his presidency in 1961, Republican Dwight Eisenhower, warned the American people about the dangers of the “Military Industrial Complex”, the control it exerted and its ability to, in his words, “weaken or destroy the very institutions and principles it was designed to protect.” This has surely come to pass.

            So, before US diplomats such as Perry Holloway attempt to discredit the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, initiated by one of the most revered freedom fighters in the Americas, the late Hugo Chavez, and led today by President Nicolas Maduro and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela with the support of the majority of the people of Venezuela, they would do well to take a long and hard look at the crisis of democracy in their own country.

            Let Mr. Holloway explain to Guyanese and the citizenry of all member-states of the OAS why, in 2017, Africans in the US continue to be gunned down in the streets on a regular basis.
            Let him explain to us why the US has the largest number of persons imprisoned per capita in the world, and why the prisoners are disproportionately made up of Africans, Indigenous and other people of color, before he points the finger at a revolution that has lifted African and Indigenous Venezuelans out of debilitating discrimination and poverty.

            Let Mr. Holloway address the situation of US political prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal, Jamil Al-Amin (formerly Rap Brown), Leonard Peltier and so many others who are languishing in US prisons before he speaks of Venezuela’s human rights record.

            Let the US Ambassador focus on the shocking poverty and illiteracy statistics emerging from his own country, before he points the finger at the Bolivarian revolution which has made unprecedented gains in eradicating poverty and illiteracy amongst the masses of Venezuela’s poor. Anyone who visited oil rich Venezuela prior to the Bolivarian revolution can testify to the abhorrent conditions and the repressive measures used to subjugate the majority of Venezuelans, and in particular, African and Indigenous Venezuelans.

            Does the Ambassador truly believe that his letters and articles, full of the usual delusional and empty rhetoric, would convince any of us that his government is concerned about democracy and human rights in Venezuela, or anywhere in the world for that matter, after we have witnessed the apocalyptic events in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and the list goes on?

            Does Mr. Holloway think we have forgotten our own history in the Americas and the Caribbean, including the US orchestrated coups that overthrew the democratically elected governments of President Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala, President Salvador Allende in Chile, Prime Minister Maurice Bishop in Grenada, President Manuel Zelaya in Honduras and the constitutional coup against President Dilma Rousseff in Brazil? What about the removal at gunpoint of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide by US military personnel in Haiti?

            There is not the space in a single article to even list the US crimes in our region. Just to chronicle them warrants a book. If we were to list US crimes against the whole of humanity, we are looking at a library of books. The US Empire and the British, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch Empires that preceded it, have been without doubt the worst examples of terrorism in all of human history.

            In his letter and article, Mr. Holloway advises that “when a government breaks with democracy, we must act in solidarity with its people, not through intervention or interference, but with diplomacy and mediation among all parties to help find a peaceful, democratic, and comprehensive solution.” Tell us Mr. Holloway: Are the examples listed above your idea of diplomacy and mediation?

            These governments were not removed because of their lack of democracy or abuse of human rights. They were removed, like countless others throughout the Global South, because they were attempting to free their country from the clutches of the Empire, and liberate their wealth and resources so that they might benefit the masses of their people. Our own founding fathers in Guyana, Cheddi Jagan and Forbes Burnham, were subjected to the same destabilization tactics at the hands of the US government and its CIA.

            Empire loses its grip

            The US and its diplomats need to understand that with the advent of the internet and the availability of information in this day and age, the Empire has lost all credibility. There is no one left on earth who can be misled by their hollow and hypocritical rhetoric. Do not be fooled by those who dare not speak openly -- they are afraid of losing their visas and even worse reprisals. Regardless of their cowardice and silence, everyone knows that the Emperor is naked. Behind closed doors, even those satraps who publicly profess their allegiance, such as the Saudis, snigger and jeer at the hideous state of affairs in the United States of America.

            As the US Empire crumbles, its vampires, who have sucked the blood of the sufferers for so long, are in panic mode because, despite their descent into blatant authoritarianism and fascism, they continue to lose their grip on the terrifying world they have created, as it spins more and more out of control. The ugly death squads such as Al Qaeda and ISIS, the very Frankensteins of their own making, are turning right back on them. As Malcom X observed so long ago, the chickens must come home to roost. One cannot keep up with the number of attacks in the US and Europe.

            One of the vampires, largely credited with creating Al Qaeda, a former US National Security Advisor, and founder of the Rockefeller-controlled Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski, in a speech to British elites at Chatham House in 2008, spoke volumes when he said:

            “…new and old major powers face still yet another novel reality, in some respects unprecedented, and it is that while the lethality of their power is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at an historical low…I once put it rather pungently, and I was flattered that the British Foreign Secretary repeated this… namely, in earlier times, it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today, it is infinitely easier to kill a million people than to control a million people.”

            The majority of CARICOM countries are governed by neo-colonial political outfits and even they voted against US plans for regime change in Venezuela.”
            The current US administration, like its predecessors, whether Democrat or Republican, is involved in just that, killing millions of people all over the world in its bid to control, and trying desperately to convince us of the absurd notion that that they are doing this in the name of democracy and human rights. Trouble is, no one is buying it? The majority of CARICOM countries are governed by neo-colonial political outfits and even they voted against US plans for regime change in Venezuela. The playbook is old and tired. Donald Trump just tied up an arms deal worth 350 billion US dollars with the corrupt and entirely undemocratic regime of Saudi Arabia, a regime that is without doubt the main proliferator of the ideology of Wahhabism and the movements intent on imposing this ideology worldwide, such as Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Nusra Front and ISIS. All these weapons to a government that is funding terrorism worldwide and committing genocide in Yemen.

            And, when the power struggle between the Saudis and the Qataris surfaced, Trump paid lip service to the manufactured war on terror by publicly condemning Qatar’s support for terrorism, and days later sold the Qataris US military hardware worth 12 billion dollars. In light of this hypocrisy and blatant disregard for the victims of these rogue states and their global terrorist network, can you really expect us to believe that your concern with Venezuela is about lack of democracy and human rights?

            No shame
            Finally, to Mr. Holloway and his cohorts throughout the region, your expressed shock and horror about the so-called spillover from Venezuela’s current predicament was perhaps the most shameful part of your missive: “The spillover effects from Venezuela’s crisis are serious and growing, whether it is irregular migrant flows to countries in our region or the increasing flow of arms and criminal activity that affect the Caribbean in particular.”

            This is rich coming from the people who illegally invaded Libya, murdered the Libyan leader and freedom fighter, Muammar Qaddafi in the street, and in so doing, destroyed the most prosperous and democratic nation on the African continent, causing a migration crisis of a magnitude never seen before. Your government handed over the nation of Libya to a conglomerate of thugs, criminals, terrorists and reactionary warlords, and this spillover continues to wreak havoc throughout Africa and the Arab Region six years on. Before you concern yourself with any spillover in the Caribbean, please deal with the spillover from your criminal invasion of Libya, a spillover that only this month reached Manchester, England.

            In Guyana, the Americas and throughout the Global South, the masses of people are sick and tired of the same old playbook -- the one that is in fact the cause of the current situation in Venezuela. But then, that is part of the devil’s own script, cause the problem and then come to us as savior, with a solution. It plays like this: the US, through its infamous web of security agencies, NGOs, Aid Agencies, think-tanks and other Trojan horses, destabilize, sow confusion and do everything in their power to overthrow any government and subjugate any people that refuse to obey Empire. Recently, more than 300,000 Venezuelans took to the streets in support of President Nicolas Maduro and the Bolivarian Revolution.

            The opposition held a demonstration that attracted 50,000. Of course, in your United States, the corporate media is reporting just the opposite. By the admission of your own president they are the purveyors of fake news and this is just another example of your country’s lack of democracy. The bottom line is this Mr. Holloway: your country and its government is no way fit to point the finger at anyone when it comes to infringement of democracy, democratic values and human rights.

            In your letters and articles you ask: “If these things were happening in our own countries, would we not want the rest of our American family of nations to speak out, and reach out, to help restore fundamental democratic freedoms and respect for constitutional institutions?”

            In your own words you proclaim that: “The Organization of American States has for decades provided a forum to discuss our greatest challenges and take action together to address them. The challenge before us today is the death spiral of democracy in Venezuela.”

            What you say in the two quotes above is correct except for one thing, the challenge before us today is not the death spiral of democracy in Venezuela, it is the death spiral of democracy in the United States and an evil Empire spinning out of control.

            You are right -- the OAS should take immediate action to prevent further terrorism and turmoil because the spillover worldwide from the crisis in the United States is serious and growing.

            Despite all the buzz caused by the digital media that promised to end travel agents, what we actually see is that in recent years, is a movement back to the origins. People have re-booked their travels that need special care and a personal touch with their trusted agents. It guarantees that someone is always ready to solve any unforeseen in just a call or instant message. In this scenario, a campaign was created by Mestica to break paradigms and to show real situations that can spoil someone's trip and that could only be solved by a travel agent.

It was therefore perhaps not surprising that as the left began to lose power in the second decade of this century, journalists and academics began to talk of the region's tilt to the right.

            East Sussex coroner says lifeguards were not deployed at popular south coast beach despite RNLI advice in 2013

            The deaths of seven men, including five young friends, who drowned at a popular beach on the south coast of England last summer were due to misadventure, a coroner has concluded. Mohit Dupar, 36, tried to reach Brazilian Gustavo Silva Da Cruz, 19, as he got into difficulty at Camber Sands, near Rye, East Sussex, on 24 July, but both died.

            A month later, five friends aged 18 to 27, who all lived in London and were of Tamil origin, drowned at the same beach on 24 August after being seen playing volleyball in the sea.

                      Race to buy $ 10 billion-valued GLP narrows down to two groups   

            SINGAPORE/HONG KONG  - The race to buy Global Logistic Properties is now between a Chinese consortium backed by the company's management and a rival group led by Warburg Pincus, sources said ahead of a Friday deadline to submit bids for the $10 billion-valued firm.

            An acquisition offers a chance for bidders to grab control of Asia's biggest warehouse operator which counts Amazon among its clients and is benefiting from rising demand for modern logistics facilities, driven by a boom in e-commerce business.

            At current valuations, a successful transaction will rank as the largest Asian buyout by private equity groups, which are increasingly targeting bigger takeovers after raising record funds, according to Thomson Reuters data.

            Singapore-listed GLP was thrust into the spotlight late last year after sovereign wealth fund GIC, which owns a 37 percent stake, nudged it to start a strategic review of its business. JPMorgan was then hired by GLP as its financial adviser.

            GLP's shares have since soared nearly 50 percent to the highest in more than three years.

            After months of negotiations with a special committee of GLP's independent directors, the race has narrowed to between a group led by Chinese private equity firms Hopu Investment Management and Hillhouse Capital Group, with the support of GLP CEO Ming Mei, and a rival consortium headed by Warburg Pincus and its logistics partner e-Shang Redwood, the sources said.

            GLP, GIC, Warburg Pincus, Hopu and Hillhouse declined to comment when contacted by Reuters. The sources declined to be identified as they were not authorised to speak about the deal.

            Hopu's founder Fang Fenglei, one of China's best known dealmakers, is a GLP board member, and Hopu, partly owns GLP's China business. The Chinese consortium has also brought in co-investors such as property developer China Vanke  and Ping An Insurance Group of China  for a bid for GLP, sources have said.

            "The management group and Warburg Pincus are the most serious bidders. Some other parties are keen on picking up specific assets and not the entire company," said one source.

            Concerns over the transparency of the sale process and business ties of the management-backed consortium have forced some potential bidders to re-evaluate their interest and sparked complaints to GIC, sources said.

            Last week, GLP said it is in discussions with shortlisted bidders and had taken measures to alleviate potential conflicts of interest following a Financial Times report that almost all the potential bidders were dropping out due to concerns an insider bid will make other submissions pointless.

            Some of the potential bidders such as Blackstone Group and Asian buyout firm RRJ Capital are unlikely to submit individual bids, sources said.

            Blackstone declined to comment. RRJ did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

            GLP owns and operates a $41 billion portfolio of industrial assets spread across China, Japan, Brazil and the United States. It gets two-thirds of its revenue from China, where it has a dominant market position.

            Around 20 lenders are working with three consortia in the hope of securing a role on the deal, IFR, a Thomson Reuters publication, reported last week.



                      Memo to Arroyo: Let McCain know you're from Asia   
            Published September 22, 2008
            INQUIRER.net

            President Gloria Arroyo may have had a top-level meeting with Republican presidential candidate John McCain during her last visit to the United States. But if he wins in November, she better hope he’ll remember that encounter -- and that he won’t confuse her, given her Hispanic surname, for one of those anti-American leaders in Latin America who are always irritating Washington.

            Just ask Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, the prime minister of Spain.

            When asked in an interview with a Miami Spanish-language radio program if he would receive Zapatero in the White House, McCain said that he would “establish closer relationships with our friends, and I will stand up to those who want to harm the United States.”

            The clearly confused interviewer politely asked the question three more times. After all, Spain is a member of NATO and a US ally, and McCain or any other US politician surely wouldn't suggest that Spain could be among those “who would harm the United States.” The interviewer even clarified that she was referring to the country in Europe. But McCain simply repeated his response.

            That prompted speculation that either McCain didn't know who Zapatero was, thought Spain is in Latin America, or simply got confused. Did he perhaps think that Zapatero was another troublemaker south of the US border? Maybe he thought he was being asked about the Zapatista rebels in Mexico, or about Emiliano Zapata, the legendary, but long dead, Mexican rebel leader.

            It may be understandable how McCain would get confused since the question about Zapatero followed others about not-so-friendly leaders in America's backyard: Raul Castro of Cuba, Evo Morales of Bolivia and the highly-controversial Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

            But as the Washington Post noted, “Lumping Zapatero in with the Latin American bad guys like Venezuela's Hugo Chavez is ironic because Zapatero and Juan Carlos, the King of Spain, were protagonists in one of the most public anti-Chavez moments.”

            The newspaper was referring to the Ibero-American summit meeting earlier this year in Chile, when Chavez criticized Zapatero's predecessor, Jose Maria Aznar, a close Bush ally, for sending Spanish troops to Iraq. Zapatero politely rejected Chavez's argument, but when the Venezuelan pressed on, the Spanish king snapped at him, “Why don't you just shut up?”

            To be sure, McCain's gaffe was not as bad as former Vice President Dan Quayle's jaw-dropping observation that people in Latin America don't speak Latin. Or President George W. Bush's surprising question to the president of Brazil: “Do you have blacks too?”

            Still, McCain's response raises doubts about his claim to be a foreign policy expert, especially since he has made other baffling remarks on foreign affairs during the campaign. Once he appeared to get mixed up about the difference between Shia and Sunni Muslims. Then he explained the crisis in Afghanistan to journalist Diane Sawyer by saying, “We have a lot of work to do and I'm afraid it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq-Pakistan border.”

            Such a border does not exist, of course. Nor does the republic of Czechoslovakia, which broke up into two nations in the early 90s, but that didn't stop McCain from referring to the defunct entity.

            McCain's campaign spokesman Randy Sheunemann later clarified that his candidate meant what he said that he would not commit to a meeting with Spain’s Zapatero. That prompted columnist Robert Schlesinger to write: “Memo to Randy Sheunemann: Your candidate can do worse things than get confused. Like he could imply that a NATO ally might mean us harm.”

            Bottom line for the Philippine leadership: Gear up for an education campaign to reintroduce yourself to a President McCain. Perhaps the Department of Foreign Affairs should send a briefing paper to the McCain campaign explaining that the US military has pulled out of Subic and Clark, just in case he gets confused about why there is now a Visiting Forces Agreement between the US and the Philippines. Or, maybe it should issue a high-level memo reminding McCain that the Philippines is no longer an American colony, and that Arroyo should be called "president," not "governor-general."

            But then again, perhaps there's nothing to worry about . After all, if McCain wins, he'll have a highly capable vice president in Sarah Palin. How can you beat a would-be-president who became an expert on Russia because she can see that country from her home state of Alaska?

            But just to be sure, it may be wise for Arroyo, or whoever takes her place in 2010, to consider a special gift to the McCain-Palin administration if they do take over come January: A very powerful telescope so she can see the Babuyan Islands from downtown Anchorage.
                      Bush's baffling salute to Filipino Americans   
            Published June 26, 2008
            INQUIRER.net

            Filipino food has not gained as much attention and praise in the United States as cuisine from Korea, China or Thailand, but Pinoy cooks and chefs have long occupied proud and important niches in US society, whether in the restaurant industry, the military or even the White House.

            Still, there was something oddly disconcerting about President George W. Bush paying tribute to the contributions of Filipino Americans – particularly those who serve his meals at the White House.

            "I want to tell you how proud I am to be the President of a nation that -- in which there's a lot of Philippine-Americans," Bush told President Gloria Arroyo during her recent visit to the White House, where the head chef, Cristeta Comerford, is Filipino.

            "They love America and they love their heritage. And I reminded the President that I am reminded of the great talent of the -- of our Philippine-Americans when I eat dinner at the White House."

            In the video of the exchange, you can then hear Arroyo, who is off camera, laughing.

            "Yes," she said.

            Bush continued, "And the chef is a great person and a really good cook, by the way, Madam President."

            “Thank you," she said.

            Bush's remarks were immediately picked up by the liberal Web site, Huffington Post, where readers were naturally amused, embarrassed, outraged.

            "What an utter embarrassment," one reader wrote. "The buffoonery ends 01/20/09."

            "It takes great skill to so utterly mangle what should have been a great compliment," another said. "And yes, beneath it all, it is quite notable that the current White House chef is both the first woman in the position and a naturalized citizen originally from the Philippines."

            "Kitchen help and servants in the White House! THAT'S what he thinks of these hard-working people!" another said.

            One reader wondered what the fuss was about: "Hmmm, my wife is Filipino and she wasn't offended. But then, she doesn't think there's anything wrong with telling a Filipino that he makes a good dish."

            The comment underscored how touchy this issue could be. After all, millions of Filipinos have moved overseas to work as cooks, kitchen help, domestic helpers, construction workers and nurses – and they've done so proudly and with honor and are actually keeping the Philippine economy afloat. As has been stated repeatedly, overseas Filipino workers are heroes.

            But another reader who responded to the last remark also hit the nail in the head on why many Americans would feel embarrassed by what their president said – and why Filipinos everywhere should be dismayed.

            "Dude, President Bush basically told the president of the Philipines that he loved the Filipino people because his only context was the one that worked for him. She should not only be offended, she should be disqusted," the reader said.

            Bush has, of course, uttered many more jaw-dropping and sometimes offensive statements in his foreign dealings that many Americans have simply learned to ignore or endure. He once demoted Pope Benedict XVI by addressing him as "your eminence" instead of "your holiness," mixed up Austria and Australia, referred to Greeks as Grecians and asked the president of Brazil, "Do you have blacks too?"

            But one must give Bush credit when he wore a barong during a visit to the Philippines five years ago. He was also following a family tradition. More than 20 years before, in June 1981, his father, then-Vice President George H.W. Bush arrived in Manila, put on a barong and met with Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos.

            Then again, that wasn't exactly a visit many Filipinos remember fondly.

            "We stand with the Philippines," the elder Bush told the dictator. "We love your adherence to democratic principles and democratic processes. We will not leave you in isolation."

            Two decades after Bush the elder's controversial remarks, it was the younger Bush’s turn to make a statement that left many scratching their heads.

            "America is proud of its part in the great story of the Filipino people,” he said.

            But it quickly became pretty clear that he didn't really completely get that story.

            For Bush also declared before his Filipino hosts that the United States "liberated the Philippines from colonial rule" -- conveniently forgetting that our homeland was once an American colony.

            Những khám phá thú vị về Nutrilite

            DN582_BvNutrilife071114_Kham-pha-thu-vi 2
            Trải qua 80 năm hình thành và phát triển, Nutrilite – nhãn hiệu Vitamin và thực phẩm bổ sung dinh dưỡng bán chạy số 1 thế giới – không ngừng mang đến những sản phẩm đạt chất lượng cao giúp mang đến sức khỏe tối ưu. Cùng khám phá những điều thú vị chưa kể về thương hiệu uy tín toàn cầu này.
            Lịch sử 80 năm phát triển
            Từ năm 1934, khi giới thiệu sản phẩm đầu tiên, Nutrilite đã trở thành nhãn hiệu dẫn đầu trong nghiên cứu và phát triển về dinh dưỡng.

            DN582_BvNutrilife071114_Kham-pha-thu-vi 2
            Thực hiện nghiên cứu và thử nghiệm tại Viện Sức khỏe Nutrilite

            Sản phẩm của Nutrilite là kết quả từ những nghiên cứu và thử nghiệm do Viện Sức khỏe Nutrilite hợp tác cùng với nhiều viện nghiên cứu hàng đầu như Trung tâm Nghiên cứu Phòng bệnh Stanford; Trường Đại học Dược Nam California; Đại học Yonsei, Seoul, Hàn Quốc và Trung tâm Di truyền học, Dinh dưỡng và Sức khỏe ở Washington DC thực hiện. Đến nay, sản phẩm Nutrilite đã có mặt tại hơn 64 quốc gia trên thế giới.
            Thế mạnh “Hữu cơ” và “Tự nhiên”
            • Chất cô đặc từ thực vật đóng vai trò chính yếu trong hầu hết sản phẩm của Nutrilite.
            • Nutrilite gieo trồng hơn 70 loại thực vật và thảo mộc tại các trang trại hữu cơở Mỹ, Mexico và Brazil. Tất cả đều tuân theo quy trình canh tác hữu cơ nghiêm ngặt, không sử dụng thuốc trừ sâu, hóa chất và phân bón.
            • Để đảm bảo dinh dưỡng, quá trình sản xuất các loại bột đông khô – một trong những sản phẩm lâu đời nhất của Nutrilite – phải trải qua bốn bước chính: Lựa chọn thực vật giàu dinh dưỡng; Thu hoạch cây trồng khi đạt hàm lượng dinh dưỡng cao nhất; Xử lý trước khi các chất dinh dưỡng bắt đầu suy giảm; Sử dụng quá trình sấy khô để khóa các chất dinh dưỡng.
            • 1kg bột đông khô cần 13kg cỏ linh lăng – loài cây thuộc họ Đậu có hàm lượng protein rất cao.
            • 1kg bột đông khô Acerlora cần 14kg quả Acerola Cherry.

            Dưỡng chất thực vật - Trái tim của các nhà khoa học Nutrilite
            Dưỡng chất thực vật là thành phần đặc biệt thường được tìm thấy trong các loại trái cây, rau củ nhiều màu sắc. Đặc biệt, chúng chỉ có trong các thực phẩm có nguồn gốc từ thực vật mà không có trong bất kỳ nguồn nào khác. Những năm gần đây, nhiều nghiên cứu khoa học đã được thực hiện và cho thấy ngoài  hoạt tính chống oxy hóa bảo vệ cơ thể, dưỡng chất thực vật còn hỗ trợ giúp tốt cho hệ miễn dịch, tăng cường mối liên hệ giữa tế bào với tế bào, hồi phục những ADN bị tổn hại do khói thuốc và các chất độc hại khác. Do đó, chế độ ăn với nhiều trái cây và rau củ để cung cấp nguồn dưỡng chất thực vật đã trở thành một trong những chế độ hỗ trợ mang đến sức khỏe tối ưu.

            Rau củ quả đa dạng sắc màu cung cấp nhiều dưỡng chất thực vật
            Tuy nhiên, không phải ai cũng biết rằng ngay từ năm 1930, Tiến sỹ Carl F. Rehnborg đã nhận thấy và tin vào giá trị của các chất mà ngày nay chúng ta gọi là dưỡng chất thực vật. Kết hợp sự tò mò, trí tưởng tượng và óc sáng tạo để cho ra đời nhãn hiệu Nutrilite vào năm 1934, câu chuyện về Nutrilite không chỉ gắn liền với tên tuổi của Tiến sỹ Carl F. Rehnborg mà việc dựa vào nguồn dưỡng chất thực vật đế có được sức khỏe tối ưu cũng đã trở thành yếu tố cốt lõi trong suốt 80 hoạt động của thương hiệu nổi tiếng toàn cầu này.

            Tiến sỹ Carl F. Rehnborg - Nhà sáng lập Nutrilite
            80 năm – Hành trình di sản khoa học dinh dưỡng
            Qua quá trình lao động, nghiên cứu miệt mài, năm 1942 đánh dấu bước tiến mới của Nutrilite khi Carl F. Rehnborg phát triển thành công phương pháp canh nông Nutrilite: trồng cỏ linh lăng - một loại thực phẩm tốt cho sức khoẻ - mà ko sử dụng bất cứ loại hoá chất có hại nào. Sau đó không lâu, năm 1948, sản phẩm Nutrilite Double X - một trong những nhãn hiệu Vitamin và thực phẩm chức năng bán chạy hàng đầu thế giới - bắt đầu được bán trên thị trường.
            Trong năm tiếp theo, cơ sở sản xuất mới tại Buena Park với quy trình khép kín từ sản xuất, đóng gói, bao bì và bắt đầu hệ thống bán hàng chuyên nghiệp. Đến 1953, nhà máy mới của Nutrilite được xây dựng tại Lakeview (bang California) tiếp tục mở rộng quy mô sản xuất một cách toàn diện. Sản phẩm bổ sung vitamin C chiết xuất từ acerola cherry được Nutrilite giới thiệu sau đó là một trong những loại thực phẩm bổ sung dinh dưỡng đầu tiên trên thế giới có nguồn gốc hoàn toàn thiên nhiên.

            Các nhà khoa học Nutrilite đang kiểm tra thực địa nông trại hữu cơ
            Sở hữu bốn nông trại hữu cơ tại các quốc gia như Mỹ, Mexico và Brazil, Nutrilite đã có được sự khẳng định về một quy trình dinh dưỡng hoàn thiện từ khâu chọn hạt giống, trồng trọt, thu hoạch, chiết xuất, đóng gói… đến thành phẩm. Nhờ đó, năm 2002, Nutrilite trở thành nhãn hiệu vitamin và khoáng chất đầu tiên được trồng trọt, thu hoạch và chế biến trên chính các trang trại hữu cơ được chứng nhận của mình.

            Dưỡng chất thực vật là cốt lõi của sản phẩm Nutrilite
            Đến năm 2013, doanh số Nutrilite toàn cầu tăng trưởng đạt mức 5 tỉ đô-la Mỹ và giữ ổn định vị trí của một trong những nhãn hàng thực phẩm bổ sung dinh dưỡng bán chạy nhất thế giới. Tại Việt Nam, Nutrilite đã mang đến hơn 10 loại sản phẩm và trên hàng triệu đơn vị sản phẩm được tiêu thụ, góp phần tạo nền tảng sức khoẻ cho nhiều gia đình Việt.
            Năm 2014 đánh dấu bước ngoặt Nutrilite toàn cầu kỷ niệm 80 năm hình thành và phát triển trên nền tảng kết hợp tinh hoa từ khoa học - tinh túy từ thiên nhiên với những nỗ lực không ngừng để hoàn thành sứ mệnh chăm sóc sức khoẻ tối ưu cho con người trên toàn thế giới.

            A report by the Education Policy Institute (EPI) says that more than a third of British teenagers are "extreme internet users." This does not (necessarily) mean they are accessing the darker, more extreme recesses of the internet, rather that they are just using it a hell of a lot. Of the 34 OECD member countries -- which includes the US, Australia and much of Europe -- only Brazilian teens were more extreme. But with 37.3 percent of British teenagers indulging in "extreme internet use," there is a warning that this is not an accolade to be proud of. Extreme internet… [Continue Reading]

            This is an elegant, mesmerising album of devotional songs from Africa, the Middle East and Asia by a British band who specialise in multicultural fusion. Based in Sheffield, Rafiki Jazz are an eight-piece who began as a collaboration between local musicians and migrant and refugee artists, and whose current lineup comes from four continents. Their four singers include Sufi soul exponent Sarah Yaseen and Avital Raz, a singer-songwriter born in Jerusalem who has studied music in India, while the backing includes west African kora, Arabic oud and ney flute, Indian and Brazilian percussion and even Caribbean steelpan.

            Their inventive set includes Coptic Christian praise songs given an Indian edge, a stately, tuneful tribute to the founder of the Mouride brotherhood in Senegal, and the Pakistani Qawwali classic Mustt Mustt treated to a kora solo. It’s impressive, but I could have done without the spoken passages.

                      Go Nuts!   

            Nuts are technically the vehicle of plant reproduction, but for humans, they are nutritious power houses. Nuts provide a massive energy source that is high in flavor and crucial vitamins and minerals. Nuts have a bad reputation for being high in calories. As counter intuitive as it seems, studies have shown that those who consume nuts more frequently have a lower rate of obesity and an easier time maintaining a healthy weight. Nuts need not to be feared, there are countless benefits in including nuts in a healthy diet, for the health of our bodies, our mood and our skin’s appearance. While each nut and seed is worthy of a blog post all its own, (coming soon), let’s start with an overview of the general benefits that they all share.

             

            What are nuts?

            Nuts are the shell-encased seeds of trees, there are more than 300 types of nuts, and every plant has a seed however, only a few of these are eaten in the human diet. Peanuts are the leading nut crop in the United States, coming in at over 70% of yearly production. Worldwide, the coconut comes in as the winner for the most grown and used nut crop. These two account for 94% of nut production globally. Coconuts are prized mostly for their oil. Peanuts- well, everyone loves their peanut butter. The lesser known nuts and seeds, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds, for example, are the true nutrition gems.

             

            Their Nutrition and Your Skin

            Nuts contain many crucial compounds, phytochemicals, such as ellagic acic, vitamins and amino acids that keep us young, healthy and our skin looking great. ¼ cup of walnuts contains about 95% of the recommended daily serving of Omega-3 fatty acids. These acids have been known to ward off depression and keep us feeling happy. Additionally, our cell membranes are built up of a blend of Saturated and unsaturated fats. Having the right ratio is crucial for cell membrane support. Consuming plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids allows the cell membranes to allow toxins out and nutrients in. They also have been shown to protect against sun damage, possibly help prevent skin cancer and reduce inflammation throughout the body. Vitamin-E keeps skin firm and elastic, protects cell membranes and also aids against damage from UV rays. Nuts may be high in healthy fats, but they are also a good source of vegetarian protein. The protein and minerals ensure quick recovery from wounds and blemishes by optimizing cell regeneration. Nuts are a great source of arginine, an amino acid that plays an important role in wound healing, detoxification reactions (Sweat, etc.), immune functions, as well as the secretion several hormones; all of which are important to healthy skin. Arginine with nitric oxide (also in nuts), plays a role in determining the tone of blood vessels, it exerts a relaxing effect on blood vessels, improving blood flow and giving us a young and healthy glow.

            Walnuts

            How to Eat them

            Always soak nuts before eating them, overnight is perfect for must nuts, except for cashew, 6 hours is enough for them. Eat them raw or lightly roasted at home, and here’s why. Most commercial roasting happens through deep-frying. Roasting them at home can help prevent oxidation that could cause cancer.

            Phytic acid is a compound in legumes, nuts and grains that resides in the bran of the grain and serves as an external layer of protection for nuts or seeds from threats in their habitat. For humans, phytic acid inhibits nutrients and minerals from being absorbed in the body. This barrier can also have a negative impact on our digestive systems, causing bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn and indigestion. On our skin, this can result in autoimmune disorders, allergic reactions, hives, poor immune system, fatigue, as well as unhealthy hair, skin and nails. Soaking nuts before you eat them can help increase phytase which helps break down the phytic acid and making the goodness of nuts easier to assimilate.

             Serving Ideas

            As a Snack: Nuts are great eaten raw or plan but when that gets boring, lightly roast them with sweet or savory seasonings, combine them with craisins and coconut, or throw a small handful in granola.

             

            With Breakfast: Add nuts to oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, sautéed greens with eggs, chop and add to scrambled tofu, you could even try baking your next batch of pancakes or muffins with almonds flour.

             

            With Dinner: Chop them and throw them into a messaged kale salad with apples and a savory dressing, use them with taco seasoning and ground chickpeas to make a vegetarian friendly taco, top a soup or main dish with a garnish of chopped nuts.

             

            As Dessert: Add them to any brownie or chocolate for a boast when you want a treat, or try chocolate, lemon, or coconut truffles like the ones pictured below!

                      An Unforgettable Journey   

            The Michigan Tech Concert Choir, along with friends and family, spent two weeks sharing their music with the people of South Africa. What they received in return, was life changing.

            In May, 45 members of the choir, along with 29 guests, embarked on a two-week concert tour of South Africa. The group traveled to Chicago on May 2 and boarded a plane the following day for the 25-hour trip to Pretoria. In addition to concert stops in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Soweto and Cape Town, the they spent three nights in the African countryside at the Cradle Moon Safari Lodge. The group ranged in age from 14 to 87 and included 12 current Michigan Tech students and 19 current or retired faculty/staff members among the singers.

            The group performed a total of five concerts; at the University of Pretoria, Holy Cross Anglican Church in Soweto, Hillbrow Theatre in Johannesburg, Old Apostolic Church in Khayelitsha (Cape Town) and Phandulawazi High School, Mitchell’s Plain (Cape Town). In addition to the concerts, the choir participated in two church services and five choral workshops and exchanges with local choirs.

            Choir Director Jared Anderson, chair of the Michigan Tech Department of Visual and Performing Arts says the choir also embarked on a pair of outreach activities. “We worked with the Amy Biehl Foundation in Cape Town, with pre-K through grade 12 students in an after-school program that included music,” he said. “At the Baphumelele Children’s Home, also in Cape Town, our group interacted with orphans, including many who are the victims of the HIV/AIDS crisis in South Africa.”

            Anderson said the workshops and outreach activities were as significant experiences as were the concerts themselves. “We were able to interact with people who were in difficult situations, but they always had a smile and a great outlook. Something that we could all learn from. Our outreach and concerts all occurred in areas where most Western choirs never visit. We performed in the townships, in churches and schools in the middle of areas that dealt with a lot of poverty.”

            Student Spencer Carlson of Royal Oak, Michigan, calls the experience “indescribable … this has changed my life in ways I never thought about before the trip,” he says. “Living, singing and dancing with the South African people, experiencing a bit of their life … I can’t formulate the words. I now have a little bit of Africa in me and I hope this feeling says with me for the rest of my life.”

            Anderson says the exchanges between the Michigan Tech singers and their South African hosts were indeed “life changing.”

            “I can’t remember concert experiences that were more varied and exciting for our singers. The choirs that we collaborated with welcomed us with open arms and warm hearts. The choir will never forget the experience of singing side by side with people who sing with such spirit,” says Anderson.

            Scott Sviland was impressed by the audience participation. “It was there from the first song on,” the chemical engineering major from Escanaba says. “It was in these moments where you really see how reserved American audiences are compared to audiences in South Africa.” Sviland says this was especially true when the Tech choir would sing a South African piece.

            "I now have a little bit of Africa in me ..." Spencer Carlson

            “When we performed ‘Hlonolofatsa’ and once we started dancing, the crowd went wild. The audiences would make every single performance special and created a truly magical environment.”

            Sviland was not alone in feeling the trip was about so much more than music. “The people of South Africa have taught me what it truly means to live life. The way many of them live without worrying what people thing of them is now something to which I now aspire.”

            Anderson said each choir tour ends up being an incredible adventure, but there was something special about South Africa.

            “Coming home from South Africa I saw things with new eyes. I know that I am a changed person and I know that many individuals in the choir feel the same way.”

            Formed in 1980, the Michigan Tech Concert Choir is made up of Michigan Tech students, faculty, staff, retirees and community members. Since its inception, international touring has been an important part of the Concert Choir experience. To date, the choir has toured and performed in Mexico, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Russia, Dalmatia, China, and now South Africa.

            The "Petya" cyberattack that has now struck computers in at least 65 countries can be traced to a Ukrainian company's tax accounting software, Microsoft says. "We saw the first infections in Ukraine — more than 12,500 machines encountered the threat," Microsoft says. "We then observed infections in another 64 countries, including Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Russia, and the United States." The complexity of the attack has fueled debate over whether the malware is a new threat or a more sophisticated version of the Petya malware that was used in an attack last spring. But Microsoft says the ransomware is "a new variant" of Petya, adding that it has issued new security updates to protect computers running its Windows software. Other anti-virus companies have also updated their software, in an attempt to limit the damage. The initial infection can be traced to tax accounting software from a Ukrainian company called M.E.Doc, Microsoft says. That connection was the subject of speculation

            In honour of Lionel Messi's 30th birthday, take a look at what he's accomplished so far and what he has left to chase down. Sid Lowe reflects on Lionel Messi's legendary career now that the Argentine has hit age 30. Herculez Gomez explains why Lionel Messi is the best player in the world and why he currently lacks a trophy with Argentina. Barcelona star Neymar is the highest-earning athlete in the world under 25, according to a study by Forbes. Neymar, who is not 26 until next February, earns $37 million a year, ahead of golfer Jordan Spieth ($34.5m) and NBA duo Kyrie Irving ($29.9m) and Anthony Davis ($28.1m). The Brazil international signed a new five-year deal with Barca last summer, worth $15m-a-year, but the report states he earns far more money away from the pitch thanks to his wide range of sponsorship agreements.

                      Ternyata Gigi Piranha Hitam Lebih Kuat Dibanding Gigitan Dinosaurus   

            Dengan panjang hanya 20-37 cm, Piranha Hitam memiliki kekuatan gigitan setara dengan 30 kali berat badan mereka.


            WowKeren.com - Piranha sudah tersohor dengan reputasinya sebagai ikan pemakan daging yang brutal. Namun siapa sangka kekuatan gigitannya mengalahkan semua binatang dengan ukuran berkali-kali lipat tubuhnya. Gigitan Piranha Hitam diklaim sebagai yang terkuat sepanjang sejarah, mengalahkan dinosaurus.

            Temuan ini dilaporkan di jurnal Scientific Reports setelah peneliti menangkap 15 Piranha Hitam di sungai Amazon. Tim gabungan dari Amerika, Mesir dan Brazil itu menggunakan alat pengukur untuk melihat kekuatan rahang gigi piranha tersebut. Otot rahang piranha ternyata memiliki kekuatan gigitan setara dengan 30 kali berat badan mereka.

            Melihat ukuran badan yang panjangnya hanya 20-37 cm itu, gigitan piranha ternyata mengalahkan Tyrannosaurus rex dan Paus Megalodon. Sebenarnya gigitan hiu putih besar, hyena dan buaya lebih kuat namun itu dianggap tidak menakjubkan karena masih sesuai dengan ukuran tubuhnya.

            Ukuran gigitan Piranha Hitam adalah 320 newton, 3 kali lebih kuat daripada buaya Amerika. Satu newton adalah gaya yang dibutuhkan untuk memindahkan berat satu kg dalam jarak 1 m. Ini adalah pertama kalinya gigitan ikan dengan nama ilmiah Serrasalmus rhombeus itu diukur dalam keadaan hidup-hidup.

            "Cerita hiperbola yang beredar dari piranha adalah perairan yang dipenuhi tengkorak korban malang, namun efektivitas gigitan mereka tidak pernah dibahas," ucap salah satu tim peneliti. "Analisis kami memprediksi gigitan Megapiranha adalah setara dengan kekuatan gigitan anterior dari hiu putih besar dengan berat lebih dari 400 kg." (wk/mr)

            Isang gabi may gathering at inuman sa mansion nang isa sa mga kasosyo sa Negosyo ni Mr. Namero.
            Maraming mga bisita puro mga businessman at mga asawa nitong mga eto.

            ''Kamusta na Kumpadre, Kamusta ang pamilya mo sa states?" sabi sa kanya nang kumpareng si Mr. Gonzales.

            Mas bata sa kanya nang unti ang kumpadre sa edad at mas matikas tingnan. Pero parehas lang silang mukhang matanda na sa tunay na edad ang itsura.
            Unti-unti na ring numinipis ang mga buhok nito sa ulo. May ari din ito nang isang malaking negosyo tulad nya. Mas mayaman pa nga ata ito sa kanya.

            "Well pare ok naman sila, baka next year na sila magvacation dito sa Pinas". sagot naman ni Mr. NAmero

            "" in which gustong gusto mo naman kumpadre dahil libre ka dito sa Pinas hehehe"biro sa kanya ni Mr Gonzales.
            "" hahaha kilala mo naman ako pare, nag-mana lang naman ako sayo" sagot naman ni Mr. Namero.

            “Hahaha Yan nga eot pakita ko sayo, Kumpadre meron akong bagong gf ngayon batang - bata at palaban pare" pagyayabang ni Mr. Gonzales.

            May binuksang video sa celfone si Mr. Gonzales. Pinanuod nila ang isang seksi, at magandang babae naka paibabaw at umiindayog sa ibabaw ni Mr Gonzales.

            "Hows that Kumpare, siguradong inggit ka ba sa bago kung gf ha" pang iingit ni Mr Gonzales sa kumapre.

            NAgulat si Mr Namero na may kinuhanang video nang pagsesex nila nang isang babae si Mr. Gonzales pero hindi sya naiingit. Higit naman mas maganda parin si Lisa nya kesa sa babaeng pinakita ni Mr. Gonzales.

            E ikaw pakita mo nga yung bagong mo, wala ka bang bagong kabit ngayon Kumpare?"

            Yan lang ba pinagmamalaki po pare?" si Mr. Namero.

            Binuksan ni Mr. NAmero ang cel nya at pinakita ang mga naka underwear lang na pics ni Lisa.

            Oh Wow! Beautiful! ganda nyan pare a. Yan ang mga type ko e yung mga mukhang maamo na nakakalibog yung katawan pre!" sabi ni Mr. Gonzales

            Lahat ng pics ni Lisa ay isa isang hayok na tiningnan ni Mr. Gonzales.
            Ibang klase ang ganda nang maamong mukha ng bagong GF ni kumpare.
            Maamo pero may Libog na parang laging nang-aakit.
            Ang pagkakatayo ng mga suso nito. Ang biglang pagkurba ng balakang nito mula sa maliit na bewang, at ang puwet nitong halos perpekto ang usli at hugis.

            " You beat me on this one pare, "Saan mo nakilala to? " May kapatid ba to pakilala mo naman sakin kumpadre "pangungulit ni Mr. Gonzales.

            “ Hahaha Di ako papatalo sayo Kumpadre” Si Mr. Namero naman.

            " Or I have a proposal kumapdre, Share mo naman sakin yan!”
            “ O gusto mo swap nalang uli tayo nang girlfriends?"pangungulit ni Mr. Gonzales.
            Di agad nakasagot si MR. Namero. Iba si Lisa sa mga naging babae nya. 'Parang Ayaw nya etong ishare sa iba. Gusto nya sya lang gagamit kay Lisa.

            ""What do you say kumpadre, Swap tayo yung gaya nang ginawa natin nuon kina grace at ana?" Diba diba Sarap nun pre, just like old times"si Mr Gonzales pa rin.

            Si Grace ay Gf ni Mr. Namero nuon at si ana kay Mr. Gonzales mga isang taon na nakakaraan.
            Nag swap sila sa dalawa babae at sabay tinira sa iisang kwarto habang pinapanuod ang isa'isa.

            Kilala nya ang Kumpare, pag may natipuhan itong babae, gagawin ang lahat matikman lang ito hanggan pagsawaan. PArehas lang nya itong manyak pagdating sa magagandang babae at Sex.

            ""Sure sure I will send you a message if we can do it ok pare?" pangako ni Mr. Namero.

            ""Ok pare, as soon as possible ha?”
            “Ang Hot nyan bago mo chicks kumpadre cant wait for my cock to get inside her hehehe" si Mr Gonzales.

            ""I-Fuck ko lahat ng butas nyan pre sinasabi ko sayo" medyo tinatamaan na nang alak si Mr. Gonzales.
            Ok Ok pre, mukhang may tama ka na dre, mabuti pa go home na habang kaya mo pa magdrive ok?"

            “Anong Swap yang naririnig ko ha sainyong 2 mga pare ha”, Wife swap ba yan? "galing sa isang tisoy na matanda.
            Si Mr. Braganza, isang mayamang negosyante rin sa province nang Cebu may lahing spanish. Mas matangkad sa kanilang dalawa. Kumpadre rin nya ito katulad ni Mr. Gonzales.

            “Dre, bakit hindi nyo ako sinasama dyan sa usapang Wife Swap nyo” Magtatampo ako sainyo nyan,” sabi nito sa kanila.
            Kinuha nito ang celfone at pinakita sa dalawa ang isang tisay na babaeng hubot-hubad sa picture . Para itong halfspanish/brazilian half filipina.

            “ Gorgeous!” I’d like to have a taste of that too Kumpadre!” si Mr. Gonzales.
            “ Pare Wife ni Kumpadre Fernando(1st name ni Mr. Braganza) yan Tarantado” pagpapa – aalala ni Mr. Namero sa kaibigan.

            “ Oh shit, really Kumpadre?” gulat si Mr. Gonzales.
            " Mas malupit ka pa samin ni Kumpadreng Namero ah!"
            '' Kami yung mga kabit lang namin ang shineshare namin. Ikaw yung mismong Wife mo hahaha" ani ni Mr. Gonzales.

            “ Yes mga kumpadre, Game yan misis ko. Hinding hindi kayo magsisisi.
            Tara ischedule natin yang swap tulad ng dati!” si Mr. Braganza naman.
            You’ll get to taste my beautiful wife”. Dagdag pa ni Mr. Braganza.
            “How about it Mr. Stregan Namero?” tanong naman nito sa kanya.
            “Ok, ok mga kumpadre, ischedule natin, I cant wait” napa-sagot na lang si Mr. Namero.

            Kailangan din sa Business ang maraming kaibigang negosyante katulad nya para patuloy ang paglaki ng negosyo.

            Samantala, Sa isang kwarto nang isang motel sa Cubao.
            “Ibuka mo pa unti yang mga hita mo” utos nang isang lalaki sa isang dalaga naka hubo’t hubad sa kama.
            “ Sabi mo ibabalik mo sakin ang video pagpinagbigyan ko na kayo, Walanghiya ka Mang Jay! “si Beth pala ang magandang dalaga, ka-ofismate ni Lisa.

            Habang wala syang saplot at nakasandal sa mga unan, ay vinivideo sya nang matandang janitor gamit ang isang videocam.
            Zinoom pa nito ang Videocam sa mga suso nya at kanyang hiyas.
            “ Hehehe Yan ganyan wag muna kikilos, kakalibog ka!” sabi ng manyakis na Janitor.

            4 months ago, nung nag outing sila kapwa nasobrahan silang dalawa ni Nina sa alak. Kainuman nila nuon si Mang Jay at Berto ang company driver.

            Kapwa sila nakatulog na ni Nina sa kani-kanilang mga upuan sa kalasingan.

            Si Mang jay ang nag-alalay at nagpasok sa kanya sa kwarto nya.
            Pero hindi nya alam, hinubaran sya at Vinideo sya nito nang hubo-t hubad habang natutulog at lasing na lasing.

            Makalipas ang ilang araw nung outing nila, tinawag sya ni Mang Jay at kinausap sa may locker room.

            NA-Shock sya sa pinakitang Video ng matanda sa celfone nito.

            May magandang dalagang hubot hubad na nakahiga sa kama.
            Nang pumunta ang video sa mukha ng babae sya pala yun.
            Wala syang saplot sa Video. Iba’t ibang anggulo ang kuha sa kanya sa video.
            Matagal ito, ilang minuto na ang nakalipas pero hindi pa rin ito tapos.

            Mang Jay! Ano Yan! Baka may makakita itago nyo!” si Beth na namutla.
            “ Hehehehe maganda ba iha?” nakangising sabi ng janitor.
            Ilang beses ko rin yang pinagjakolan, sarap mo video palang” dugtong nito.

            “ Alam mo beth matagal na kitang crush e, alam mo na siguro ang ibig sabihin nito?”
            Sabi ng matanda sa kanya.
            Hindi agad naka sagot si Beth. Nanginginig sya at hindi makapag-isip ng maayos.
            Hinawakan sya ng matanda sa braso nya at hinimas – himas.

            “ Ganito iha, ibibigay ko sayo ang video na ito pag-pinagbigyan mo ako”
            “Pagbigyan mo lang ako isang beses lang para hindi kumalat ang videong ito” pag propose ni Mang Jay sa kanya.

            Hindi pa rin nakasagot si Beth.

            “Kumalat?!” pag-iisip ni Beth. “ Pag kumalat to malaking kahihiyan to para sa kanya” Baka mapanuod pa ito ng mga kakilala nya, mga kapamilya at kamag-anak. Kakahiya Shit!” malalim ang pag-iisip ni Beth.

            SA itsura palang ng matanda nadidiri sya sa maaring mangyari. Payat si Mang Jay pero matigas ang pangangatawan.
            Maitim pa ito sa palaging nabibilad sa araw. Higit sa lahat may kapangitan ito.
            Alam nya mga singkwenta anyos na rin ito. Matagal na itong janitor sa kumpanya at kala nya mabait naman.
            Hindi nya akalaing mabibiktima sya ng Blackmail nito.

            Ngayong itsura nito ay isang demonyong padila-dila pa habang lumuluwa ang mata taas baba sa katawan nya.

            Hindi nya maubos maisip na mangyari sa kanya to. Nagta-trabaho naman sya nang maayos para makatulong sa kanyang mga magulang at mga kapatid.

            Hindi na nga sya uli nag boyfriend para makapag concentrate sa trabaho at balak din nyang mag abroad balang araw.

            Sagot! Ikakalat ko talaga to sa Internet!” pagbabanta ng matanda.

            “O-opo Mang Jay!.. pagbibigyan ko naman po kayo, basta promise nyo po sakin isang beses lang ha” pagmamaka-awa ng dalaga.

            “Pangako iha, isa lang, ibabalik ko sayo to” sagot sa kanya ni Mang Jay.


            author: cloud9791

            Sabado nang umaga makalipas ang ilang araw na pinakita sa kanya ni Mang Jay ang video. Walang pasok sila kapwa ni Mang Jay tuwing Sabado at Linggo.
            Nag-aabang sya sa isang mall.
            Pagka-ganda- ganda ni Beth suot ang isang black t-shirt at hapit na hapit na maong pants. Mapagkaka-malan mo pa rin itong isa sa mga estudyante nang college sa Univerity Belt na nandun din sa mall namamasyal.

            Hindi sya komportable at wala syang suot na bra at naka-T-back sya sa loob. NGayon lang sya nakapag suot nang ganitong panty. Utos sa kanya ito ng matanda.

            Hindi tuloy sya mapakali at baka may makahalatang tao.

            Dumating ang matandang buhong. Malayo palang ay abot na ang ngiti nito sa tenga.

            “ Oh paano iha, halika na at nang makarami naman ako sayo hehehe” sabay akbay nito sa kanya.

            Aalisin sana nya ang kamay ng matanda, binalaan na agad sya nito” Ops, basta mabait ka lang at susundin mo lahat gusto ko ibabalik ko sayo yun”

            “ Pag hindi, alam mo na mangyayari “ pananakot nito sa kanya.

            Sa taxi, kala mo ay magsyota sila sa pag-akbay sa kanya ng matanda.
            E yung pinisil-pa nito ang gilid na kaliwang boobs nya. Wala pa naman syang bra.
            Pasimpleng kinakakalabit din nito ang kanyang utong.

            Pasilip silip din ang taxi driver sa mga pasahero nya.
            Hinahalik-halikan ng Maitim na matanda sa pisngi yung maputing dalaga.

            Hindi ubos maisip ng taxi driver kung paano pinatulan ng magandang dalaga yung matanda.
            Mga kabataan nga naman ngayon” sabi nalang ng taxi driver sa sarili.

            Ipinasok nang taxi driver sa Taxi Room ng Motel ang kotse.
            Nung una ay hindi talaga makapaniwala ang taxi driver kung saan nagpa hatid ang dalawa.

            Nagmamadalig binayaran ni Mang Jay ang taxi driver. Salamat sir” ani nang driver.

            Nagmamadaling nag-check in ang dalawa. Lalo na si Mang Jay at kanina pa sya gigil na gigil kay Beth.

            Kanina pa sa Taxi ay sasabog na ata ang puson nya at halos mabutas na ang brief nya sa tigas ng titi nya.

            Sa loob ng kwarto nang motel,

            “ Mang Jay pwede ho ba, maligo po muna kayo at mag toothbrush” pakiusap ng dalaga sa matanda.

            “Ha anong.. bakit mabaho ba ko ha?” pagtataka ni Mang Jay.

            Pero sumunod din ang matanda at pumasok sa CR. Paglabas ng matanda nakatapis nalang ito ng tuwalya at medyo basa pa.

            “ O yan pinagbigyan na kita ha , bakit hindi ka pa naghuhubad?” ani ni Mang Jay.

            O sha dun ka na sa CR magtanggal, bilis!” utos sa kanya na matanda.

            Agad namang sumunod si Beth.
            Habang nasa loob ng CR si Beth. May inayos ang matandang janitor sa isang madilim-dilim na sulok nang kwarto ng motel.
            Chineck nya itong maige at malinaw ang kuha ng buong kama.

            Syang labas naman ni beth galing sa banyo. Nakatapis ang buong katawan nito ng tuwalya.

            “ Anak nang, ano ba yan beth, tanggalin mo yang tuwalya. Gusto ko makita yung katawan mo” utos ni Mang jay kay Beth.

            Napilitang sumunod si Beth. Hinayaan nyang nahulog sa sahig ang tuwalya.

            Luwa naman ang mata ng matanda paglaglag ng towel galing sa katawan ni Beth. Hubo't hubad na ang dalaga at tanging ang T-Back panty nalang ang suot.

            Hanep ang katawan nito. Naalala tuloy nya ang pinagpapantasyahang dalaga sa FB na dalaga na laging ngpo-post ng pics na kay puti-puti.

            Ang bilog na bilog na boobs nito na katamtaman lang ang laki at pinkish ang utong. Ang umbok ng puki nito na mukhang makipot pa. Ang sobrang puti at makinis na balat nito. Ang magandang mukha mamula-mulang labi at mahabang buhok.
            Lahat yun ay hindi nakaligtas sa mata ng manyakol na matanda.

            Tinanggal din nang matanda ang tapis niya. Umigkas ang tigas na tigas na titi nito.
            Nabigla si Beth sa bumulaga sa kanya. May kahabaan ang tigas na tigas na titi ng matanda at may kalakihan ang pinakang-ulo.

            “ Oh tatayo ka nalang ba dyan, halika nga rito “ si Mang Jay pagkuwa’y hinila sya ng matanda at napatalbog syang napahiga sa kama.

            Kapwa na sila hubot hubad ngayon. Parang silang bagong kasal kung pagmamasdan. Lalo na si Mang Jay na sabik na sabik. Mabilis itong pumatong sa kanya.
            Saglit na napagmasdan ni Beth ang katawan nang matanda. Naiilang sya rito. Parang ayaw nyang mapadikit ang katawan sa matanda.

            Pero wala na syang maggawa. Nagdikit at lumapat ang katawan nito sa kanya.
            Mainit ito, sinubukan nyang umiwas, pero wala rin yun at akap sya nito ng mahigpit.
            Iniharap nalang ni Beth sa kanan ang ulo para hindi makita ang matanda sa gagawain nitong kahalayan.

            Pilit inaabot ng nguso ng matanda ang mga labi nya. Pero tigas na iniwas ni Beth ang mukha. Hindi nya maatim na mahalikan sya nito.

            Hehehehe” narinig nyang ang mahinang pagtawa nito.
            Ah ganun ha, sige.. sige lang, tingnan natin mamaya kung hindi ka bumigay sakin babae ka.” Sabi nito sa kanya.

            “ Talagang Hinde! “ inis na inis na pagmumuni ni Beth.

            “ Sino ba namang gaganahan pag ganito ang kapareha mo sa Sex.” Nasa isip pa rin ni Beth.

            Nang hindi maabot ng matanda ang mga labi nya, ang leeg nalang nya ang hinalikan nang magaspang nitong labi.

            “ Putah! Ambango mo! Kakagigil ka iha!” Swerte ko talaga Sayo wahehehe!” parang nababaliw na ang matanda.
            Matagal din nyang pinangarap makatikim nang mga ganitong edad. Yung kaka-graduate palang ng college na tulad ni Beth.

            Sinimulang halikan-dilaan ng matanda ang leeg nya. Hayok ito dumila. Nararamdaman nya ang mainit at basang dila nito. Ang mainit na pagguhit nito sa kanyang balat.
            Buong leeg nya ay sinamsam nito.
            Ang sa may ilalim ng kanyang baba.
            Ang sa may bandang ilalim nang kanyang mga tenga.
            Walang nakaligtas sa matanda. Gusto lasahan ang bawat sulok nang magandang dalaga.

            Hindi naman malaman ni Beth kung saan ibabaling ang ulo. Ang totoo’y nakikiliti sya at nagsisimulang makaramdam nang kakaiba init sa ginagawa sa kanya nang matanda.

            Maya maya ay napadako ito sa kanyang bandang may mga collar bone. Muntik nang mapatili si Beth nang simulang kagat-kagatin nang matanda ang balat nya dun.
            Ginamit ni Beth ang buong lakas nya, para lang patuloy na itikom ang bibig.
            Napatingala nalang sya nang napunta ang dila nang matanda sa mga dibdib nya.
            Dinila-dilaan na nang matanda ang paligid ng kanyang mga utong.
            Kabi-Kabila, palipat – lipat ang bibig nito. May unting maliliit na mga kagat pa sa paligid ng kanyang mga suso.
            “Ohh Shettt, Tang-inang hayop kang matanda ka Wag dyan” sa isip lang ni Beth.
            Kagat – labi na si Beth. Nahihiran na syang pigilan ang nagigising na libog.
            Ang katawan nya, kusang sumasabay na sa matanda.
            Napanganga si Beth at naptingala, biglang isinubo ng matanda ang left nipple nya.

            “ Aahhh! “ Manyak! Manyak manyak kang hayop ka aaahhh “ galit na galit si Beth sa Isip nya.

            Sipsip, hithit ang matanda sa utong nya walang sawa. Umaarko na ang likod nya pataas.


            “ Ohhhhh nakupo “ Hindi na mapigilang mapa-impit na ungol si Beth. Pero mahina lang yun. Ayaw nyang marinig nang matandang Jay na nasasarapan sya.
            Ang hindi nya makontrol ay nagsimulang pagtigas nang kanyang utong sa pagkakasubo nang makapal na nguso nang matanda.

            Hehehehe”.
            “kunwari ka pang babae ka ha” maduming isip ng matanda.
            Lumipat naman sya sa kanang nipples nito.
            Kinagat- kagat at sabay subo at sipsip nya ito.

            “ Aaayyyyy wagg dyang panget ka matanda ka! Shet!“ sa isip lang ni Beth.

            Paano sunud-sunoran na ang katawan nya sa matanda.
            Patraydor na tumayo at tumigas na rin ang kanang nipples nya.
            Saglit na pinakawalan ng matanda ang mga utong nya.
            Sabay naman nitong nilamas ang tayung-tayo na nya mga suso.

            “ Hehehe Sarap naman ng mga suso mo ineng!” Gigil ito habang Walang tigil sa paghimas – lamas sa mga ito.

            Isang masamang titig ang binigay nya sa matanda.

            Pero ang matanda ay ngisi lang ang isinagot sa kanyang titig.
            Hayop ka! Mamatay ka na sana!” galit pa ring iniisip ni Beth.
            Pero ang galit nya ay hindi sinuspurtahan nang katawan nya.
            Naka-angat ang likod nya, sumusunod ang mga dede nya sa magaspang na kamay ng matanda sa walang sawang paglamas- pisil nito.

            Maya-maya ay hinalik-halikan nito ang makinis nyang tyan. Tumutulo rin ang laway nito habang dinila-dilaan ang paligid nto.

            “ Aaayyyy “ Napapikit at napatingala na lang si Beth.

            Nararamadaman nya ang patuloy na pagtaas ng kanyang libido.
            Bumibigay ang katawan nya sa Romansa ng matandang manyak! At wala na syang maggawa para pigilan ito.

            Nang biglang tumigil ang matanda
            Napadilat si Beth.
            Pagtingin nya sa baba, ang mukha nang matanda ay nasa may tapat na nang kanyang hiyas.

            Inoobserbahan din pala sya nito. Kung anong gagawin nya.

            “Hehehe ano to Iha basang - basa ka na a”

            Napahiya si Beth.

            Isang mabilis na pasada nang pagdila ang ginawa nang matanda sa kahabaan ng hiwa nya.
            Parang may dumaloy na kuryente sa buong katawan nya sa ginawang iyon nang matanda. Saglit nanigas ang kanyang katawan.

            “Hmmm ambango at ang sarap ng lasa ng puke mo iha” bastos na sabi nito sa kanya.

            “Kunwari ka pa iha, basang – basa na nang katas mo etong puke mo a”

            Nahihiya si Beth sa sarili nya at sa matandang buhong.
            Totoo naramdaman nyang naglalawa na ang puke nya sa Libog.
            Gusto-gusto naman ng matanda ang puke nang magandang dalaga.
            Manipis lang ang bulbol nito. Halos parang wala nga.
            Eto ang mga type ni Mang Jay na itsura nang pekpek.

            Sinimulan nya itong dila-dilaan sa hiwa, mabilis. Sarap na sarap sya sa lasa ng puke ng dalaga.

            Hhmmmpp, aayyyy ummmpphhh, tanginang shit ka aahhhh” impit na ungol ni Beth nang gawin iyun nang matanda.

            May sariling isip na umaangat ang puwitan nya para ipagdunggolan sa nguso at dila nang matanda ang hiwa nya.
            Dinila-dilaan nito ang kanyang pussy lips, abot hanggan kuntil nya.
            Ikot na ang puwet ni Beth. Ayaw na sumunod nang katawan nya sa kanya.

            “ Aaaaahhhhhhh ansaarappp dumila nang pangit na to,, “ sa isip lang ni Beth. Pilit pa rin nyang pigilan ang sarili kahit natatalo na nang kamunduhan

            Isa lang ang naging boyfriend nya at Matagal na silang naghiwalay nito.

            PEro dahil gusto nyang mag-concentrate muna sa pag-aaral at makatapos.
            Nakipag-break sya dito dahil natatakot syang baka mabuntis sya nito.

            Di nya akalaing ang pag-iwas nya mag boyfriend ay babagsak din pala ang katawan nya sa lalake at dito pa sa pangit na matandang ito.
            Tuluyan na syang nadarang ng kalibugan nang bastos na Matandang Janitor nila.

            Ang naglalawa na nyang hiyas, naramdaman nya dumadaloy na ang kanyang katas aabot na sa may puwitan nya.

            Napansin iyon nang manyak na matanda.

            Pati tuloy butas ng puwit nya ay buong kabastusang dinilaan pataas dahan-dahan nang matanda.
            Napasunod din pataas ang puwitan ni Beth dahil dun.
            “ Tangina ka sabaw mo iha! “ Sarapp mong kainin! “

            Eto ang talaga ang hanap nya sa babae, yung masabaw ang hiyas.
            “ sabi ko na malibog din ang batang to e wahehehe” isip ni Mang Jay.

            Ang hindi alam ni Beth, lahat yun ay narerecord nang isang munting videocam sa isang sulok nang kwarto nang motel.

            Kung paanong umikot,tumaas ang balakang nya at sumalubong sa bawat hayok na paghigop, pagdila sa kanyang hiyas ng matanda.

            Lahat yun kuhang-kuha nang videocam ni Mang Jay.

            Matapos pa ang ilang minuto.

            “ Aa, Ayan naa, nakup… OOOHHhHHHHHHH, mahabang ungol nang magandang dalaga. “Walanghiya kang matanda ka aahhh”
            Hindi mapigilang ni Beth sumabog na ang kaligayahan nya sa sarap.
            Puro puti nalang sa mata nya habang nilalabasan sya.
            Nasa pinakataas nang arko nang likod nya ang seksi at petite nyang katawan.

            Buong lakas nagdudumiin ang puki nya sa mga labi, nguso at dila nang hayok sa Sex na matanda Jay.

            “ Nasarapan ka ba iha? Hehehe Malibog ka rin palang bata ka”

            "" Tangina mo gago kang matanda ka, walanghiya manyak" sa isip ni Beth galit na galit.

            Nakangisi habang nagsasalita ang matanda.
            Wahahahaha” Hayaan mo di pa tayo tapos “ Umpisa palang yan”
            “ 12 oras kaya ang binayaran ko dito sa motel. “
            Susulitin ko ang binayad ko dito, Hindi kita titigigilan iha haha”

            Tulala pa si Beth habang nakikinig. Hindi pa sya natatauhan nang lubos.
            Grabe kase ang pag orgasmo nya kanina.

            “ Hayaan mo paliligayahin kita ineng “ Hindi mo makakalimutan ang araw na to sabi ko sau!”

            Pagkasabi nuon ay pumuwesto na ang matanda sa pagitan nang mga hita nya.
            Pinaghiwalay na ng mga matitipunong braso nito ang mga legs nya.

            "' hehehe pwede kang tumili iha!''

            Proxy War and Surrogate Terror: How the US Came to Take an Active Role in War and Torture in Latin America

            Thursday, June 29, 2017 By John W. Dower, Haymarket Books | Book Excerpt 
            Soldiers conduct a static line jump in the Colombian National Training Center on Fort Tolemaida, August 31, 2011. (Photo: The US Army)Soldiers conduct a static line jump in the Colombian National Training Center on Fort Tolemaida, August 31, 2011. (Photo: The US Army)
            Although US involvement in torture focused on the Iraq War in the last decade, the United States has had a long involvement by proxy with torture and the killing of peasants and Indigenous peoples in Latin America. In this excerpt from his book, Dower describes the US role in facilitating death and destruction in Latin and South America over the past few decades.
            The long and generally shameful history of US overt and covert interventions in South and Central America traces back to the turn of the twentieth century. Before World War II, these incursions, commonly in defense of US business interests, even involved protracted military occupations of Nicaragua (1912-33) and Haiti (1915-34). During the Cold War, intervention was more covert, but just as unrelenting. John Coatsworth, a distinguished scholar of Latin American economic and international history, calculates that between 1948 and 1990 the US government "secured the overthrow of at least twenty-four governments in Latin America, four by direct use of US military forces, three by means of CIA-managed revolts or assassinations, and seventeen by encouraging local military and political forces to intervene without direct US participation, usually through military coups d'état."
            Notorious among these postwar intrusions was the overthrow of democratically elected governments in Guatemala (1954), Brazil (1964), and Chile (1973). Nothing, however, obsessed North Americans looking south more than the political event Washington was unable to manipulate: the Cuban revolution that deposed the dictator Fulgencio Batista in the opening days of 1959. This Marxist revolution in the Caribbean was compounded by the alarming nuclear missile crisis of 1962, when the United States discovered Soviet missiles being installed in Cuba. From then on, planners in Washington and their right-wing allies throughout Latin America used the rationale of "preventing another Cuba" to justify clamping down on dissident domestic movements across the board, from militant Marxist agitators to socialists and liberals to anyone critical of the status quo or engaged in working to alleviate misery among the rural and urban poor.
            A mid-1960s US congressional investigation reported having "found concrete evidence of at least eight plots involving the CIA to assassinate [Cuban leader] Fidel Castro from 1960 to 1965." This was grist for cloak-and-dagger media reports. More difficult to grasp, or even see, was the sustained manner in which police states south of the border secretly coordinated their crackdowns on critics of all stripes, invariably in the name of anticommunism and invariably with the support of the United States.
            A decisive step in this support took place in 1963, when the administration of President John F. Kennedy tasked the army's School of the Americas (SOA), established in 1946 and initially located in Panama under a different name, with training South and Central American military officers and police in counterintelligence and counterinsurgency. The SOA's classes were conducted mostly in Spanish. By the end of the century, the school had trained around fifty-five thousand officers plus roughly four thousand police and civilians from some twenty-two or twenty-three countries. A striking number of its graduates were to become prominent leaders in the "dirty wars" that would ravage Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, El Salvador, Ecuador, Honduras, Panama, and Nicaragua. Along the way, the SOA acquired such derisive sobriquets as School of Assassins, School of Dictators, School of Coups.
            Taking sides in dirty wars was typical of the proxy conflicts that engaged the United States and Soviet Union worldwide and shredded the so-called Long Peace of the Cold War. In Latin America, this mostly involved the United States extending funding, training, organizational and operational advice, weapons, logistical intelligence, and the like to authoritarian regimes engaged in "counter-subversive" activities, as well as to right-wing movements dedicated to subverting reformist and left-wing governments. Washington thus found itself supporting state terror on the one hand and violence and terror against the state on the other.
            The top-secret South American transnational campaign of state-sponsored terror known as Operation Condor was a beneficiary of covert US support of the former sort. Dating from the late 1960s and formally consolidated in 1975, Condor involved collaborative cross-border intelligence, apprehension, abduction, rendition, interrogation, torture, assassination, and extrajudiciary execution operations among dictatorial regimes in the "Southern Cone" nations of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia, later joined by Ecuador and Peru. Upwards of fifty thousand to sixty thousand individuals appear to have been killed or "disappeared" in Condor-directed actions in the 1970s and 1980s, with countless thousands imprisoned and, in many cases, tortured. More than a few victims were exiles who had fled their native countries and were engaging in human rights campaigns as refugees.
            The targets of this collaborative state terror extended beyond armed militants and avowed Marxists to include anyone associated with criticizing the existing right-wing regimes or advocating social justice. This was spelled out not just in the back rooms of ruling juntas, but also in training provided by the CIA and SOA. We have a clearer picture of this tutelage from instructional materials disclosed over the course of the 1980s and 1990s that became collectively identified in the media as "torture manuals." In these dense manuals, many of them translated into Spanish, "insurgent" and "guerrilla" were the words commonly used to stigmatize critics or dissidents. Terrorism and the Urban Guerrilla, a teaching guide introduced to SOA classes in Spanish in 1987, expresses this succinctly: "Examples of hostile organizations or groups are paramilitary groups, labor unions, and dissident groups." Another SOA manual, Handling of Sources, is even more expansive: "The CI [counterintelligence] agent should consider all organizations as possible guerrilla sympathizers. ... By infiltrating informants in the diverse youth, workers, political, business, social and charitable organizations, we can identify the organizations that include guerrillas among their members." Elsewhere in the instructional guides the identification of explicit targets is extended to refugees, political parties, peasant organizations, intellectuals, teachers and students, universities, priests and nuns, and so on. One appalling quotation translated from a torture manual identifies target groups as "religious workers, labor organizers, student groups, and others in sympathy with the cause of the poor."
            Upon assuming power in 1981, the Reagan administration stepped into this violent world with unrestrained ardor and callous indifference to actual conditions on the ground. Despite much evidence to the contrary, the enemy was reaffirmed to be monolithic communism, directed from Moscow and spearheaded by its Cuban apprentice. As 1980s policymakers saw it, the threat was especially dire in Central America. Guatemala, where brutal repression had taken place ever since the CIA coup in 1954, was subjected to continued special attention. El Salvador and Nicaragua also became targets of fervent counterinsurgency -- and insurgency -- campaigns. In El Salvador, the "anticommunist" agenda involved supporting a dictatorial regime against any and all opponents. In Nicaragua, the situation was reversed. There, the Reagan administration devoted almost evangelical energy to nurturing and supporting the Contras, a terrorist "guerrilla" campaign against the left-wing Sandinista government that in 1979, with considerable popular support, had overthrown the brutal, US-supported Somoza family dictatorship that dated back to 1936.
            Disclosure of classified texts and other disturbing information pertinent to covert US activity in Central America took place sporadically but frequently between the mid-1980s and mid-1990s. Much of this focused on the sensational (and farcical) Reagan-era "Iran-Contra" scandal that broke open in 1986 and involved a convoluted plot to obtain funds for the right-wing insurgents in Nicaragua by using Israel as an intermediary to sell weapons to fundamentalist and anti-American Iran for use in its war with Iraq (to which the United States was also providing support). The less remembered CIA and SOA written materials that surfaced during these years existed at a low level in the hierarchy of covert activity and were not policy documents, but for good reason they also caused a stir. They provide a glimpse into the mindset behind anticommunist covert activities, and a graphic case study of what "exporting Americanism" in this last decade of the Cold War involved at ground level.
            The first significant instructional manual to come to public attention was a guide in Spanish prepared by the CIA for the Contras. Titled Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare in the original English draft, this eighty-nine-page text was greeted with shock in the United States when exposed by journalists in 1984. After introducing it as "a primer on insurgency, a how-to book in the struggle for hearts and minds," for example, Time magazine went on to observe: "Some of the 'techniques of persuasion' are benign: helping the peasants harvest crops, learn to read, improve hygiene. Others are decidedly brutal: assassination, kidnaping, blackmail, mob violence. It could be a manual for the Viet Cong or the Cuban-backed rebels in El Salvador. If it were, the Administration would likely be waving it as proof of the thesis about the sources of insidious world terrorism."
            Complementing Psychological Operations and also exposed in 1984 was another CIA Spanish-language project: a cartoon booklet airdropped into Nicaragua. Titled (in the English translation) The Freedom Fighter's Manual, this was as crude and pedestrian as Psychological Operations was vicious, but still disturbing in its own way as an exercise in low-level terrorist activity. It instructed citizens in scores of acts of vandalism (cutting cables, sabotaging machinery, putting dirt or water in gasoline tanks, setting fires, freeing farm animals, and so on) that might help bring the left-wing Sandinista government to its knees.
            The torture manuals, which came to belated public attention in the 1990s, consisted of seven Spanish-language SOA texts, totaling 1,169 pages. These were distributed to military officers in eleven South and Central American countries between 1987 and 1991 and also used by instructors in School of the Americas classes. The manuals reflected teaching materials used since 1982, when the Reagan administration dismissed the human rights concerns tentatively initiated during the Carter presidency. These SOA resources were complemented by two CIA "counterintelligence" manuals -- one recycled from 1963, and one dated 1983 that essentially replicated this.

            While the torture manuals open a small window onto Washington's pervasive disregard for democracy, human rights, and the rule of law when it came to covert activities, they also cast light in other directions. One is the care taken to ensure a measure of plausible deniability about what was really being promoted. Rhetorically, this was done with euphemisms and genuflections to propriety: death squads were referred to as "Freedom Commandos" and "Freedom Fighters," for example, and slogans like fighting for "God, Homeland, and Democracy" were promoted. Procedurally, a measure of plausible deniability was obtained by directing CIA and SOA activity largely to pedagogy rather than actual hands-on violence -- without calling attention to the fact that this involved teaching right-wing military, paramilitary, and police forces how to most efficiently engage in infiltration, interrogation, torture, terror, and "neutralization" of perceived enemies.
            Once these various manuals became public, Washington's predictable machinery of "public diplomacy" went into motion. The SOA teaching guides were declared "inconsistent with U.S. policy." The school's course offerings also were said to include respect for human rights. "Objectionable and questionable" passages amounted to no more than two dozen -- and in any case were nothing more than a "mistake" made by some misguided junior officer working from "outdated intelligence materials." Problematic statements had "escaped oversight." "A few bad apples" were involved in promoting, or practicing, torture. And in any case, excesses had been "corrected."
            This was, as all spin is, disingenuous. The manuals were indeed wordy -- they are numbing to read -- but what SOA teachers emphasized and their students found most engaging was precisely what caused these materials to be called torture manuals. This was confirmed by Major Joseph Blair, a covert operative who (like remorseful members of the nuclear priesthood and repentant tell-all CIA agents) ultimately came in from the cold. Blair had held a responsible position administering the CIA-led Phoenix assassination program during the Vietnam War, and in the early 1980s had moved on to the SOA, where he assisted the creator of the controversial manuals in the classroom. Interviewed in 1997, after having retired in 1989, he described "primarily using manuals which we used during the Vietnam War in our intelligence-gathering techniques. The techniques included murder, assassination, torture, extortion, false imprisonment."
            Turning to the argument that objectionable passages were but a minuscule part of the 1,100-plus pages of SOA instructional materials, Blair pointed out that "the officers who ran the intelligence courses used lesson plans that included the worst materials contained in the seven manuals. Now they say that there were only eighteen to twenty passages in those manuals in clear violations of US law. In fact, those same passages were at the heart of the intelligence instruction." As for the claim that SOA instructors took care to teach human rights, he noted that this amounted to a few hours and was roundly regarded by instructors and students alike as a joke.

                        Brazil’s president is charged with bribery   

              EVER since an audio recording emerged in May of Brazil’s president, Michel Temer, seeming to discuss paying hush money and backhanders, the country’s zealous prosecutors have been expected to pounce. Even so, the decision by Rodrigo Janot, the chief prosecutor, on June 26th to charge Mr Temer with bribe-taking was momentous. It is the first such charge against a sitting president.

              Mr Janot bases his accusations on the tape and testimony of Joesley Batista, the billionaire businessman who secretly recorded it. These resulted in a sting operation in which Rodrigo Loures, a former aide to Mr Temer, was filmed receiving 500,000 reais ($159,000) from Mr Batista’s envoy, allegedly for interceding with the antitrust agency on his firm’s behalf. Mr Janot suspects that the cash, plus another 38m reais promised by Mr Batista, was in fact meant for Mr Temer. The president protests his innocence and points out that his relationship with Mr Loures is all that links him to the payoff...

              In Brasilia there were no bus or underground services available but it was business almost as usual in the rest of the country. Brazil went through Friday's general strike, the second of its kind called for by labour unions against the economic reforms President Michel Temer intends to bring about, with business nearly unaffected in major cities, Brasilia excluded. Temer's personal involvement in alleged cases of corruption seemed to have had little or no impact on the workers' decision.

              Temer has already withdrawn from attending the G-20 summit next week in Germany in view of the charges against him. Brazil's union federations will hold a second strike on Friday with demonstrations against the government's economic reforms and to demand the resignation of President Michel Temer, who has vowed to approve labour flexibility in the coming weeks.

              Google logo office man selfie

              Business students can't wait to work at Google, and their engineering and IT classmates couldn't agree more.

              Universum, a global research and advisory firm, surveyed 149,226 undergraduates studying engineering or IT in the 12 countries with the world's largest GDPs — Germany, France, UK, Italy, Russia, US, China, Japan, Brazil, India, Canada, and South Korea.

              The engineering and IT students were asked to choose the companies and organizations they'd most like to work for.

              Universum then put together a ranking of the most desirable employers, based on the number of undergraduate engineering and IT students who chose a company as one of their dream employers.

              Google, which specializes in online advertising technologies, cloud computing, software, and, of course, search, landed at the top of the list for a second consecutive year.

              Microsoft, Apple, GE, and BMW rounded out the top five.

              Here are the top 50:

              MMA Training Workouts What An Ultimate Fighting Training Session Should Be

              Mixed Martial Arts have become a very popular sport. MMA fighters are one of the most complete athletes out there with an extreme level of fitness, strength and endurance. Perhaps the only other type of athletes that come close to this level of fitness are rowers. That is why MMA fighters have to chose wisely when it comes to mma training workouts.

              Because of the nature of the sport and the demands of each fight, it is important to develop an all around routine that will address strength, power, strength endurance, increase lactate threshold and of course, develop a good fighting technique like Brazilian Jiu Jitzu or Judo.

              An MMA fighter needs to develop a very high lactate threshold, otherwise he will be throwing up in between rounds. A good way to do this is with high interval training like wall to wall sprints, kettlebell swings, etc. He or she also need to increase their endurance by doing long cardio sessions either swimming, running, biking or any other activity that will allow for a sustained effort for a long period of time, anywhere between 45 90 minutes.

              Another good example of efficient MMA training workouts will include strength training consisting of pulling and pushing motions like squats, lunges, rows, pull ups and chin ups and core exercises like pull ups with knee raises, one of the most difficult exercises to do properly but that will develop a core of steel. Also, planks and side planks and modified versions of these exercises.

              Saya yakin setiap pencinta sepakbola akan mengingat pertandingan antara Brazil melawan Belanda pada Piala Dunia 1994. Sebuah pertandingan dengan tensi tinggi dimana kondisi fisik berperan sangat penting. Pada pertandingan tersebut Brazil memenangkan pertandingan dengan skor 2-0 dan Belanda gagal memanfaatkan beberapa kesalahan yang dibuat oleh para pemain belakang Brazil untuk menyamakan skor. Belanda sebagai tim yang lebih mengontrol permainan akhirnya kalah akibat para pemainnya kurang mampu mengatasi tekanan mental. Faktor psikologi memang punya peran dominan dalam suatu pertandingan sepakbola, terutama setelah kekuatan fisik dan reaksi pemain berkurang. Brazil telah menyiapkan fisiknya secara baik dan mampu mengatasi situasi di bawah tekanan tersebut dan memenangkan pertandingan. Namun,

              Brazil sendiri juga pernah mengalami kejadian dimana keunggulan fisik lawan menjadi penentu dalam pertandingan. Pada even Olimpiade 1996, Brazil sempat unggul 3-1 atas Nigeria sampai menit ke-65, namun akhirnya harus mengakui kekalahan dengan skor 4-3 akibat kelelahan fisik.

              Dalam bab ini, kita akan mendiskusikan beberapa metode pembentukan fisik dan jenis – jenis latihan yang dikembangkan dan digunakan oleh timnas Brazil. Tetapi pembahasannya tidak akan dilakukan secara detail, karena untuk membahasnya secara lengkap akan membutuhkan satu buku tersendiri.

              Kita akan fokus pada konsep yang dikembangkan di persepakbolaan Amerika bagian Utara yang dapat menghasilkan pemain yang kompeten dengan berbagai prestasinya di level kompetisi internasional.

              Sejarah pembentukan fisik sebagai salah satu faktor paling penting dalam persiapan sebuah tim nasional dimulai saat digelarnya Piala Dunia pada tahun 1966. Inggris sebagai tuan rumah sangat berambisi untuk memenangkan turnamen tersebut. Terutama karena mereka adalah Negara asal sepakbola. Satu – satunya tim tangguh yang menjadi penghalang ambisis mereka adalah Brazil, juara dunia tahun 1958 di Swedia dan 1962 di Chili, dengan ciri permainannya yang mengandalkan skill dan kecepatan.

              Pada saat turnamen sesungguhnya berlangsung, Inggris menciptakan strategi man on man marking yang membutuhkan kondisi fisik prima dari para pemain. Lewat strategi ini, pemain-pemain Inggris tidak memberikan ruang bagi Brazil, khususnya kepada Pele. Mereka benar – benar mendominasi Piala Dunia 1966 dan membatasi ruang gerak pemain lawan yang merupakan langkah awal dalam pengembangan prinsip pertahanan dalam strategi sepakbola modern.

              Semua sekolah sepakbola di dunia menjadi sangat tertarik dengan berbagai metoda latihan Inggris yang menitikberatkan pada fisik, khususnya di Jerman dan Spanyol. Dari pengalaman tahun 1966 tersebut, para pelatih fisik Brazil menghabiskan waktu bertahun – tahun di sekolah sepakbola Eropa untuk mempelajari cara terbaik dalam membuat program latihan fisik yang efektif dan tepat, dan pelatihan itu dikenal dengan istilah Total Training Method. Prinsip ini kemudian menjadi dasar perencanaan latihan fisik di berbagai klub sepakbola dan timnas Brazil.

              Sistem pelatihan fisik Brazil ini kemudian dibawa ke sekolah-sekolah sepakbola di Amerika bagian Utara, dan berhasil mendorong peningkatan yang signifikan khususnya pada pembentukan fisik. Beberapa pelatih MLS (Major League Soccer) mengangkat pelatih fisik untuk menjadi asisten mereka. Mereka menyadari betapa pentingnya memiliki pengetahuan yang cukup untuk membentuk fisik pemain khusunya bagi pemain muda.

              Prinsip pembentukan fisik adalah mengembangkan fisik pemain untuk mencapai performa yang baik. Langkah – langkah yang harus dipertimbangkan ketika menyiapkan program ini adalah :

              Meningkatkan sistem pernafasan melalui aerobik dan anaerobik.
              Meningkatkan kadar darah yang dipompa oleh organ hati ke seluruh tubuh.
              Membentuk otot di bagian tubuh tertentu.
              Meningkatkan otot di bagian tendon dan ligamen.
              Mengurangi kadar asam pada otot selama bermain sepakbola


              Untuk memahami dan mengawasi apakah langkah – langkah tersebut dilakukan dengan baik, dibutuhkan seorang spesialis (pelatih fisik) yang bertujuan memonitor perkembangan fisik pemain. Berikut ini adalah beberapa tanggung jawab seorang pelatih fisik yang direkomendasikan oleh Prof. Julio Mazzei :

              Perencanaan, pendidikan, pengarahan dan supervisi program pembentukan fisik (atletik dan psikologi) secara berkala mingguan, bulanan dan tahunan.
              Perencanaan, pendidikan, pengarahan dan supervisi pemanasan sebelum sesi latihan (teknis dan taktik) dan sebelum sesi permainan.
              Membantu direktur teknik ketika diminta bantuan sepanjang sesi taktik dan teknis.
              Membentuk dan menyesuaikan program fisik khusus bagi pemain yang sedang cedera, yang berhubungan dengan bagian medis dan terapi fisik.
              Memberikan hasil ringkasan mingguan untuk aktivitas latihan yang telah dilakukan, sebagai supervisi bagi pengembangan pemain.
              Memberikan pendapat pribadi mengenai kuantitas dan kualitas pertandingan persahabatan pada level, daerah, nasional ataupun internasional yang telah dilakukan tim.
              Menyimpan data hasil latihan (lihat bab perencanaan) dan berbagai data penting yang berhubungan dengan aktivitas pengembangan dan perencanaan yang akan berguna untuk kebutuhan tahun depan.
              Mengorganisir dan mengarahkan evaluasi kondisi fisik pemain.
              Mengikuti seminar, kursus, simposium dan memperoleh lisensi yang dapat mengenalkan teknik, sistem dan metode pelatihan baru.
              Memberikan ringkasan evaluasi fisik dan performance permainan setiap pemain, serta selalu memberikan peringatan untuk kebiasaan buruk di luar lapangan yang dapat mempengaruhi kondisi fisik mereka.
              Selalu menganalisis permainan pemain, dan ingat ungkapan psikologis asal Perancis M. Baquet :

              ‘Kamu berjalan dengan kaki, bernafas dengan paru-paru, berlari dengan hati tetapi capailah tujuan dengan perasaanmu’
                        Menyiapkan Program Latihan Fisik Sepakbola   
              Salah satu kunci sukses pembinaan sepakbola usia muda adalah diterapkannya Total Training Method: Program ini merupakan kombinasi dari berbagai bagian yang dibutuhkan untuk membentuk performa dan fisik pemain yang baik tanpa membahayakan kesehatan. Bagian – bagian dalam program ini adalah: Perencanaan dan manajemen, kontrol medis, kebiasaan, nutrisi makanan, adaptasi terhadap program latihan, psikologis, teknis dan prinsip pembentukan fisik. Selain itu, ada 5 faktor penting yang harus dianalisis ketika menyiapkan prinsip pembentukan fisik berdasarkan filosofi Total Training Method adalah:

              Interaksi antara program pembentukan fisik dan teknik yang didukung oleh aspek psikologis
              Mengevaluasi perencanaan tahunan secara konsisten untuk meyakinkan para pemain pada suatu kelompok masih tetap fokus terhadap tujuan pelatihan
              Evaluasi terhadap pemain dibuat terpisah berdasarkan prioritas kelompok
              Mengorganisir program dan latihan yang spesifik berdasarkan frekuensi, intensitas dan banyakknya latihan.
              Selalu memperhitungkan faktor motivasi, hal – hal yang perlu dianalisis di antaranya :
              Kemampuan fisik dari setiap pemain
              Kesehatan dari setiap pemain agar tetap terbebas dari sakit atau cedera (latihan harus aman, jangan pernah mengambil resiko dengan memaksakan pemain berlatih jika kondisi kesehatan mereka tidak fit 100%)
              Jenis latihan yang harus dikondisikan dengan keadaan cuaca (jika kondisi dingin, latihan dilakukan di dalam ruangan, begitu juga saat hujan). Lokasi, selalu menukar tempat latihan pemain untuk mencegah kebosanan

              Sebelum kami menjelaskan hal penting pada fisik dan mengilustrasikannya dengan beberapa program latihan, berikut ini merupakan langkah – langkah dalam menyiapkan pemain sebelum menjalani pelatihan fisik:

              Istirahat, pemain harus menjalani masa penyembuhan. Periode ini dibagi menjadi 3 situasi berbeda. Waktu tidur minimal 8 jam. Jika berlatih 2x sehari, pemain harus diberikan waktu istirahat untuk memulihkan kondisi fisiknya dan meregangkan mental dan emosinya. Waktu istirahat yang kurang dapat mempengaruhi kualitas permainan karena meningkatnya level stress dan emosi.
              Nutrisi makanan, pemain harus menyeimbangkan diet berdasarkan kadar nutrisi harian yang diperlukan oleh tubuh. Nutrisi tersebut di antaranya: Vitamin, protein, garam mineral, karbohidrat, dan lemak. Karbohidrat sangat penting karena mampu menghasilkan energi.
              Cuaca, menghindari latihan ketika cuaca ekstrem panas (menyebabkan dehidrasi) atau dingin/hujan (mengundang penyakit).

              Pemanasan sebelum Latihan Fisik ala Brazil

              Pada bagian ini akan laskan kepada para pelatih mengenai jenis – jenis latihan fisik yang diterapkan di Brazil. Pemanasan ala Brazil ini bisa meningkatkan kelenturan, kegesitan dan keseimbangan.

              Pemanasan tanpa bola : Lakukan sebelum bermain, dimulai dari lari – lari kecil hingga lari sprint sesuai perintah pelatih. Pola lari dilakukan secara bergantian dengan jeda waktu yang cepat dan usahakan agar pemain selalu tetap bergerak. Pemanasan ini sangat baik karena menggerakan seluruh tubuh, akan lebih baik lagi jika intensitas lebih lama.

              Intensitas latihan ini bagi kelompok umur : U8-U10 : 6-8 kali; U12-U14 : 10-12 kali; U16 ke atas : 13-15 kali dengan detail latihan sebagai berikut:
              Latihan #1. Lari dengan mengayunkan kedua tangan ke atas kepala dan searah pundak.
              Latihan #2. Lari dengan mengayunkan kedua tangan ke kiri dan ke kanan.
              Latihan #3. Lari dengan meregangkan ke dua tangan ke dalam dan keluar.
              Latihan #4. Lari dengan menarik kedua tangan dari muka ke arah dada.
              Latihan #5. Lari dengan memutar badan dari pinggul ke kanan dan ke kiri.
              Latihan #6. Lari kemudian berhenti, posisi kaki kanan di depan kaki kiri di belakang dan tangan kanan ke atas tangan kiri ke bawah, lakukan bergantian.
              Latihan #7. Lari kemudian berhenti, wajah tolehkan ke kanan kemudian ke kiri. Lakukan berulang.
              Latihan #8. Lari kemudian tendang kaki kanan ke arah depan hingga menyentuh tangan kanan yang direnggangkan ke depan. Ulangi untuk kaki dan tangan kiri.
              Latihan #9. Lari kemudian tendang kaki kanan ke arah kiri, ulangi untuk kaki kiri ke arah yang berlawanan.
              Latihan #10. Lari kemudian angkat kaki kanan ditekuk di bagian lutut dan ayunkan ke kiri, lakukan bergantian dengan kaki kiri.
              Latihan #11. Lari kemudian angkat kaki kanan ditekuk di bagian lutut dan ayunkan ke depan, lakukan bergantian dengan kaki kiri.
              Latihan #12 Lari kemudian tendang kaki ke arah belakang sentuh dengan tangan

              Pemanasan dengan bola : Pemanasan ala Brazil identik dengan 4 jenis latihan yang dapat meningkatkan respons. Pemanasan harus dilakukan secara intens, terus menerus, dan menggerakan badan dari posisi yang simpel hingga yang kompleks. 4 jenis pemanasan itu adalah :
              Latihan tanpa gerakan maju dan mundur. Latihan ini dapat meningkatkan respons pada situasi tanpa pressure.
              Latihan dengan bola, yaitu : Jungkir balik, sit-down, stand-up dan lainnya. Latihan ini dapat meningkatkan respon pada situasi yang tidak dapat diprediksi atau respon terhadap arah bola yang tidak bisa ditebak.
              Latihan dengan sprint jarak pendek, setelah menendang bola sejauh 15 meter, sprint ke arah berhentinya bola, kemudian kembali ke titik awal, lakukan berulang-ulang.
              Latihan dengan gerakan maju-mundur di lapangan.

              Kami merekomendasikan bola karet untuk pemain U-14. Hal ini ditujukan untuk melatih konsentrasi, bola karet yang terbuat dari karet membutuhkan presisi ketika menerima dan mengumpan, karena bola karet akan lebih memantul ketika dikontrol. Porsi latihan dengan bola karet berdasarkan umur: U8-U10 / 30 detik; U12-U14 / 45 detik; U16 ke atas / 60 detik dengan rician sebagai berikut:

              Latihan pemanasan dengan partner (4 posisi ketinggian bola):
              Posisi bola di tanah:
              Menggiring bola dengan mengubah kaki yang digunakan untuk mengontrol bola. Untuk U8-U10 : 2 sentuhan dan U12-U18 : 1 sentuhan.
              Latihan di tempat (sama dengan latihan #1), tetapi ada gerakan tambahan berupa sit-down, stand-up dan lainnya.
              Partner berdiri pada jarak 6 kaki dari posisi kita kemudian menendang bola sejauh kira-kira 30 meter kemudian kita mengejarnya dan memberikannya lagi, lakukan secara berulang.
              Sprint jarak pendek.
              Posisi bola setinggi pinggang:
              Latihan ini dilakukan dengan menendang bola ke udara kemudian diterima oleh partner menggunakan bagian tubuh di bawah pinggang, namun ketika mengembalikan bola harus ditendang menyusur tanah. Lakukan secara berulang.
              Menahan bola dengan dada:
              Salah satu pemain mengumpankan bola dengan cara melemparkannya ke udara, kemudian partnernya harus menerima menggunakan dada. Latihan ini ditujukan untuk melatih pemain ketika berada pada situasi di bawah tekanan lawan.
              Sundulan:
              Salah satu pemain mengumpankan bola dengan cara melemparkannya ke udara, kemudian partnernya akan mengembalikan bola dengan menyundulnya secara offensive ataupun defensive, lakukan secara berulang dan acak. Kemudian saling tukar posisi. Latihan ini tidak direkomendasikan untuk pemain U8 – U10.
                        Introduksi: Manajemen Sekolah Sepak Bola   
              Pada umumnya, pengorganisasian kurikulum pendidikan sepakbola didalam sebuah klub adalah dengan membagi menjadi klub atau organisasi sepakbola tersebut menjadi empat departemen, sebagai berikut:

              Departemen Pengembangan: untuk usia 6 sampai 9 tahun

              Departemen ini harus mempekerjakan pelatih terbaik yang ada didalam organisasi. Tanggung jawab utama para pelatih tersebut di tingkat ini adalah menjaga permainan agar tetap menyenangkan dan membangun koordinasi tubuh dan dasar yang kuat dalam pengendalian bola. Kurikulum pendidikan pada usia ini harus didasarkan pada betapa menyenangkannya bermain bola. Menikmati permainan selalu merupakan dorongan belajar yang besar.

              Jadwal-jadwal latihan harus memuat latihan untuk membangun koordinasi tubuh, kelincahan dan kecepatan reaksi (yang dibangun melalui latihan sirkuit bersama bola). Lakukan latihan dengan bola karet berukuran kecil dimana akan berperan dalam seluruh jadwal latihan koordinasi tubuh. Kurikulum untuk anak usia 6 tahun disusun bersama dengan para orang tua pada tingkat pelaksanaannya; lalu nanti mereka akan bermain bersama.

              Kelanjutan pengembangan teknik didasarkan kepada permainan yang sekaligus mendidik serta menyenangkan dan permainan yang dibagi dua kelompok dalam ruang terbatas dengan gawang berukuran kecil (tanpa penjaga gawang). Pelatihan khusus bagi penjaga gawang dapat diberikan bagi seluruh anak, pada rentang usia ini.

              Departemen Kompetisi: untuk anak usia 10 sampai 16 tahun
              Kelompok umur ini harus diberi pengawasan dan pendampingan yang lebih banyak untuk meningkatkan kecepatan proses belajar mereka.

              Departemen Pemilihan Pemain: untuk anak usia 17 sampai 19
              Departemen ini khusus untuk para pemain yang tingkat pengembangan dan kompetisinya sudah mencapai tingkatan yang serius. Kelompok ini biasanya berlatih paling tidak selama 3 kali seminggu, yang akan mendidik mereka selama 6 jam. Latihan akan dikhususkan kepada pengkondisian fisik bersama bola, keterampilan teknik dan konsep taktik serta strategi.

              Departemen Profesional
              Idealnya, klub yang sukses seharusnya mampu untuk mendayagunakan sejumlah pemain yang dihasilkan oleh program usia mudanya. Jika sebuah posisi tertentu tidak dapat diisi oleh para pemain di level usia muda, maka perlu direkrut pemain dari luar.

              Pada beberapa aspek, tujuan pada Tingkat Kompetisi sama dengan Tingkat Pemilihan Pemain. Di tingkat usia seperti mereka ini, penekanannya adalah pada kemampuan teknik. Kelompok ini diperhitungkan sebagai tim lapis kedua bagi setiap kelompok umur. Tingkat Kompetisi ini diperlukan karena begitu banyak pemain muda yang berkembang di usia lebih dewasa. Dengan pengawasan dan pelatihan yang baik, banyak pemain yang bisa melaju dan masuk pengujian di tahun-tahun sesudahnya untuk menjadi tim inti.

              Sebuah contoh yang baik dari organisasi sepakbola ini adalah E.C. Vitoria Club di Brazil. Klub ini telah memusatkan perhatiannya kepada program pengembangan usia mudanya, sambil menjaga tim profesionalnya berada di peringkat 10 besar tim terbaik di Brazil. E.C. Vitoria berhasil memenangkan beberapa turnamen usia muda yang bergengsi diseluruh dunia, seperti Phillips Cup di Belanda pada tahun 95-96, Dallas Cup di AS pada tahun 96-97 dan Manneheim Cup di Jerman pada tahun 97. Selama tiga tahun berikutnya, klub ini mampu mengekspor para pemain yang sudah cukup dewasa dan lebih berpengalaman ke berbagai negara, dan kemudian menggantikan mereka dengan para pemain yang lebih muda, dengan kualitas yang sama, yang telah dipersiapkan sebelumnya. Siklus dan struktur pendidikan seperti ini memberikan peluang bagi klub untuk mempersiapkan para pemainnya dengan baik, memberikan peluang bagi para pemainnya untuk mempersiapkan diri mereka sendiri sebaik mungkin, dan memberikan kemampuan bagi klub untuk mendapatkan keuntungkan finansial dari penjualan pemain dan penawaran sponsor serta para pemasang iklan yang merupakan hasil dari pencapaian prestasi yang berkualitas dan pertandingan-pertandingan yang berhasil dimenangkan.

              Tujuan-tujuan Pengembangan

              Sebuah organisasi sepak bola yang baik harus membangun seksi-seksi kelompok umur yang spesifik, supaya benar-benar bisa menetapkan sasaran tertentu yang harus dicapai di setiap kelompok umur tersebut, dan memungkinkan organisasi untuk melakukan pengawasan yang lebih baik terhadap perkembangan pemain dan pelatihan yang mereka jalani.

              Kelompok Umur 11/12:

              Tujuan utama dari kelompok umur ini adalah untuk mengembangkan keterampilan teknik dasar permainan, sebagai berikut:
              Kontrol bola.
              Membawa bola (dengan masing-masing kaki).
              Tendangan (langsung mengarah ke gawang atau tendangan pisang/melengkung) (dari luar kotak penalti).
              Operan dalam dan luar kaki (juga dengan tendangan melengkung).
              Crossing (panjang/pendek).
              Sundulan bertahan dan menyerang.
              Eksekusi (didalam kotak penalti).
              Antisipasi
              Improvisasi

              Terapkan keterampilan-keterampilan teknik ini pada sebuah pertandingan, dalam posisi bertahan atau menyerang Penetapan posisi baik untuk pemain bertahan maupun menyerang akan mulai diperkenalkan pada tingkat umur ini. Pertandingan-pertandingan tingkat lokal dan propinsi harus mulai diikuti untuk mendapatkan pengalaman bertanding.

              Kelompok Umur 13/14:

              Pengembangan pada tingkat usia ini, akan difokuskan pada kecepatan reaksi dari penerapan seluruh keterampilan teknik dalam situasi pertandingan dari 2 v 1 sampai 6 v 5. Konsentrasi pada pengembangan keterampilan teknik yang setara untuk kedua belah kaki.

              Adalah sebuah kebiasaan didalam sepakbola Brazil, pada seluruh tingkatannya, bahkan para profesionalnya, untuk melakukan peninjauan ulang dan latihan keterampilan teknik sebagai kegiatan rutin dalam latihan.

              Pelatihan intensif dalam 4 aspek dasar sepakbola Brazil merupakan bagian dari U13/U14. Hal-hal tersebut sudah seharusnya menjadi keputusan-keputusan yang otomatis.

              1. Bermain bola di lapangan.

              2. Meminimalkan jumlah sentuhan terhadap bola.

              3. Menerima bola dan memindahkan titik serangan.

              4. Penempatan diagonal – bertahan dan menyerang. Muncul untuk menerima bola.

              Intensitas latihan baik dalam posisi bertahan maupun menyerang akan semakin bertambah. Selain itu, para pemain di tingkat ini harus mulai belajar bermain di semua sektor lapangan (bertahan, tengah dan menyerang). Berbagai tekanan serangan, sirkulasi bola dan rotasi pemain (ketika bertahan) juga diperkenalkan di tingkat ini.

              Pertandingan-pertandingan tingkat lokal dan propinsi, dan beberapa pertandingan tingkat nasional harus diikuti untuk mendapatkan pengalaman bertanding.

              Kelompok Umur 15/16:

              Tujuan utama pengembangan di tingkat ini adalah latihan taktik dan teknik baik untuk setiap individu pemain maupun keseluruhan tim, sebagai berikut:
              Seperti kami telah sebutkan, selalu lakukan peninjauan ulang keterampilan teknik.
              Temukan sektor terbaik (bertahan/tengah/penyerang) bagi setiap pemain dan asahlah keahlian mereka di sektor tersebut.
              Perencanaan (pola) taktik secara intensif.
              Memperkuat siklus permainan dalam berbagai situasi, berbagai jenis tekanan dan berbagai strategi.
              Pemahaman menyeluruh mengenai bagaimana membangun serangan dari belakang melalui jalur tengah maupun sayap.

              Pertandingan-pertandingan tingkat lokal, propinsi, nasional dan beberapa pertandingan tingkat internasional harus mulai diikuti untuk mendapatkan pengalaman bertanding.

              Kelompok Umur 17/19:

              Tujuan utama di tingkat ini adalah untuk membangun pengetahuan taktik dan strategi untuk diterapkan diberbagai sistem (3-5-2/4-4-2/4-2-4). Membangun pemahaman mengenai berbagai jenis tekanan dan gerakan yang sesuai serta perputaran para pemain tengah. Seluruh siklus permainan harus dipahami oleh keseluruhan tim. Disarankan untuk terlibat dalam seluruh jadwal pertandingan yang tersedia, baik secara local, provinsi maupun nasional. Ikut serta-lah dalam turnamen yang diselenggarakan baik untuk U17/19 maupun untuk satu level diatasnya (U21).
                        Seleksi dan Penilaian Pemain Muda   
              Pada pendidikan sepakbola usia muda, seorang pelatih memiliki kesempatan untuk mendapatkan pemain melalui jaringan orang tua dan iklan di koran. Sangat penting untuk menjelaskan tujuan-tujuan sekolah sepakbola yang Anda kelola dan keuntungan dalam keikutsertaan dalam program sepakbola Anda.

              Apabila anda melatih di tingkat sekolah atau universitas, evaluasi biasanya dilaksanakan setelah adanya komitmen kepada sang pemain. Referensi dari pelatih sebelumnya atau guru olahraga bisa menghemat waktu dalam seleksi pemain di tingkat sekolah atau universitas. Para pelatih di tingkat ini seringkali menemukan masalah sikap dan komitmen dari para pemain barunya, karena pada dasarnya tugas utama para pelajar ini adalah bersekolah atau kuliah. Karena itu perlu ditanyakan terlebih dahulu kepada calon pemain mengenai komitmen mereka serta cara mereka membagi waktu antara sepakbola dan sekolah/kuliah.

              Apabila anda menjadi pelatih pada tingkat profesional, kualitas pasokan pemain menjadi faktor yang utama dalam seleksi pemain. Pemain bisa datang dari berbagai sumber. Banyak negara seperti Brazil, Belanda, Inggris dan Jerman, mengembangkan pemain bola profesional yang siap bertanding di usia muda. Sistem ini memberikan kesempatan bagi para pelatih untuk mendapatkan pemain yang bagus. Namun di negara seperti Indonesia, agak lebih sulit untuk menemukan pemain yang dididik dengan benar dan siap bermain secara sepakbola profesional.

              Kita bisa meniru cara klub Brazil seperti E.C. Vitoria yang memiliki pencari bakat untuk mencari pemain muda yang memiliki kualitas. Prosesnya sebagai berikut:
              Seorang pemain muda yang akan direkrut harus terlebih dahulu mengikuti ujian percobaan di kotanya/daerahnya.
              Jika lulus, ia akan diundang untuk trial, berlatih dan bermain bersama dengan para pemain di kelompok umurnya di klub kita.
              Perkembangannya selama beberapa waktu dipantau dan dicatat. Jika kemudian dirasa kemampuannya baik, pemain tersebut kemudian bisa dikontrak dengan masa percobaan selama beberapa bulan sebelum nantinya dikontrak permanen.

              Klub-klub di Brazil memiliki aturan tidak resmi tentang jumlah ideal pemain yang direkrut sebagai bagian dari tim junior utama di tiap kelompok umur. Idealnya, jumlah pemain setiap tim kelompok umur adalah sekitar 28 orang. Ini berarti ketika mereka menemukan pemain baru dengan kualitas lebih baik, maka pemain yang sedang berada dalam tim bisa diminta untuk meninggalkan klub. Upaya mengembangkan pemain muda dalam sistem seperti ini memiliki resiko yang cukup besar jika pelatihan tidak dilakukan dengan benar karena adanya tekanan yang tak terhindarkan keatas para pemain muda ini untuk mencapai keberhasilan. Usia paling muda yang dianjurkan untuk pindah ke klub profesional adalah 14 tahun.

              Tryout

              Sangatlah penting bagi Anda sebagai pelatih utama, untuk berhati-hati agar tidak mengacaukan kesatuan tim Anda. Rotasi pemain besar-besaran yang dilakukan berkali kali akan menimbulkan kelemahan pengembangan konsep taktik. Jika seorang pemain baru hadir dalam tryout atau ujian percobaan dalam rangka menggantikan seseorang yang mengenal filosofi pelatihan Anda, memahami konsep-konsep permainan dan memiliki sikap yang positif; sesungguhnya Anda harus benar-benar berpikir beberapa kali untuk menggantikan dia. Pemain baru ini harus benar-benar memiliki keterampilan teknik yang jauh lebih baik dan beberapa kualitas tertentu untuk posisi khusus yang Anda cari.

              Anda harus menyusun rencana ujian percobaan yang disesuaikan dengan kebutuhan Anda.

              Sangatlah penting bagi Anda untuk memahami karakteristik setiap posisi, dan bagaimana melakukan evaluasi terhadap para pemain yang ada dengan benar. Anda selalu bisa mengembangkan keterampilan teknik, memperbaiki konsep taktik dan aspek-aspek kondisi fisik, namun Anda perlu berhati-hati terhadap kepribadian dan sikap pemain terhadap tim nya.

              Penjelasan Mengenai Kualitas

              Teknik:

              Kemampuan untuk melakukan keterampilan secara benar, mengambil keputusan yang tepat dibawah tekanan.

              1. Dalam proses pengembangan.

              2. Harus memiliki kemampuan untuk melakukannya dalam berbagai situasi tekanan.

              3. Harus mampu untuk menunjukkan kinerjanya dalam berbagai situasi tekanan.

              Kepemimpinan:

              1. Hal ini penting bagi pemain ini untuk memiliki sejumlah keterampilan komunikasi, dan mampu membantu tim, khususnya ketika dibawah situasi tekanan

              2. Pemain dengan kapasitas untuk memimpin tim sepanjang pertandingan. Dia mampu menyampaikan dan menyokong perintah pelatih.

              Jenis fisik:

              Karakter fisik pemain

              1. Tubuh atletis apapun dapat diterima

              2. Dibutuhkan beberapa aspek spesifik seperti: tinggi, kuat, kecil dan kuat, kurus, dll.

              3. Seorang pemain yang memenuhi seluruh kebutuhan yang diperlukan sebagai atlit yang baik dalam hal ukuran, kekuatan, dll. Kami merasa perlu untuk menyampaikan bahwa dalam metode kami, ukuran dan kecepatan adalah merupakan faktor penting bagi posisi bertahan bagian dalam seperti: swiper, stoper (pemain bertahan bagian dalam) dan pemain tengah bertahan.

              Kecepatan:

              1. Tidak perlu memiliki kecepatan tinggi dalam mengambil keputusan, dengan atau tanpa bola.

              2. Kecepatan pada umumnya.

              3. Kecepatan merupakan faktor penting untuk melaksanakan gaya permainan apapun.

              Sebuah evaluasi teknik/taktik diperlukan untuk memberikan kesempatan yang cukup bagi pelatih untuk mengamati seluruh pemain yang tertarik melaksanakan program ini.

              Anda harus mendapatkan sejumlah minimum peserta ujian percobaan dalam rangka menciptakan suasana persaingan dan tantangan yang dibutuhkan untuk menciptakan tekanan terhadap seluruh peserta.

              Jumlah minimal pemain untuk sebuah ujian percobaan yang efektif adalah:

              U11 sampai profesional – 20 orang pemain lapangan dan 2 orang penjaga gawang

              U10 – 16 orang pemain dan 2 penjaga gawang (bukan ujian percobaan, hanya penempatan)

              U8 – 10 pemain (semua diuji menjadi penjaga gawang) (bukan ujian percobaan, hanya penempatan) Tim A/B

              Ujian percobaan di tingkat universitas atau tingkat lanjut perlu melibatkan pemain yang lebih dewasa dan berpengalaman untuk memberikan tantangan yang dibutuhkan dan menambah jumlah pemain.

              Para pemain harus melalui proses pendaftaran dan mendapatkan nomor yang dipasang dibagian dada dan punggung. Para pembantu pelatih akan diberi lembaran formulir dengan informasi sebagai berikut: Nama pemain, tanggal lahir, posisi yang disukai, nomor punggung.

              Lokasi pengamatan harus ditentukan untuk melakukan evaluasi. Setiap pelatih yang ditugasi untuk setiap lokasi pengamatan harus dapat menjelaskan: Bagaimana cara melakukan?; Kapan menerapkan?; Mengapa menggunakan?; Aspek-aspek taktik atau teknik permainan. Lokasi pengamatan harus dibagi berdasarkan jumlah pemain yang akan dievaluasi.

              Jangan pernah mengijinkan lebih dari 10 pemain pada sebuah lokasi pengamatan dan jangan biarkan waktu ujian percobaan lebih lama daripada 3 jam untuk U15 keatas (termasuk profesional) dan 2 jam untuk U14 kebawah. Kualitas kinerja para pemain akan menurun dan pengambilan keputusan serta pengamatan yang keliru sangat mungkin bisa terjadi.

              Pada setiap lokasi pengamatan, pertahankanlah keseimbangan kualitas pemain selama kondisi pertandingan. Para pemain terbaik harus ditempatkan bersama pada akhir evaluasi untuk bertanding secara penuh tanpa batasan. Sekarang inilah waktu pengambilan keputusan.

              Persiapan Sebelum Seleksi

              Pemanasan – 15 menit

              Para pemain Brazil melakukan pemanasan tanpa bola dan melakukan peregangan. Para pemain muda membutuhkan penjelasan lebih mengenai gerakan dan langkah-langkah pemanasan yang benar. Pemanasan yang baik merupakan sebuah keharusan sebelum memulai ujian percobaan. Para pelatih akan lebih mampu untuk melakukan evaluasi koordinasi tubuh para pemain.

              Lokasi pengamatan #1

              1 v 1 dengan dua buah gawang. Tujuan kegiatan ini adalah untuk mengevaluasi keterampilan teknik dan pengambilan keputusan (baik bertahan maupun menyerang) dalam situasi tekanan pada umumnya. Gunakan dua buah gawang berukuran biasa untuk setiap kelompok umur yang Anda evaluasi. Masing-masing pemain harus diberi bola.

              Mengenai durasi, kami menyarankan:

              a. U10 dan dibawahnya – 10 detik

              b. U14 dan dibawahnya – 15 detik

              c. U15 dan diatasnya – 20 detik

              Waktu ini didasarkan kepada tingkatan kemampuan untuk menjaga penguasaan bola dan mencetak gol atau mempertahankan gawang. Waktu maksimum yang diperbolehkan adalah 20 detik.

              Hal-hal untuk diamati: Aspek-aspek penyerangan dan pertahanan individual. Sangatlah penting untuk menjelaskan dan menunjukkan aspek apa saja yang akan Anda amati.

              Bertahan

              - Kapan waktunya pemain harus merebut bola dengan menjegal atau menahan untuk mengulur waktu

              - Garis pertahanan (pemain harus berada diantara pusat gawang dengan bola)

              - Posisi tubuh: satu kaki didepan, lutut harus dalam keadaan tertekuk, bagian atas tubuh membungkuk dan tangan naik.

              Menyerang

              Opsi #1 – Jika pemain bertahan maju dengan tekanan yang cukup kuat dan menahan laju serangan, penyerang harus:

              - menggunakan kaki bagian luar kearah bagian kaki yang lemah dari pemain bertahan

              - lalu memotong kedalam dan menendang

              Opsi #2 – Jika pemain bertahan maju terlalu cepat, tanpa berhasil mengendalikan diri, pemain menyerang harus:

              - melakukan manuver untuk melewati pemain bertahan tersebut secepat mungkin dengan menggunakan keterampilan penguasaan bola individunya.

              Opsi #3 – Jika pemain bertahan maju terlalu lambat untuk melakukan tekanan, pemain menyerang harus:

              - menendang tembakan ke gawang dengan segera

              Lokasi pengamatan #2

              Pertandingan di lapangan ukuran biasa atau yang lebih kecil dengan tiga gawang. Tujuan dari lokasi pengamatan ini adalah untuk mengevaluasi

                        Teknik Menguasai dan Menerima Bola 1   
              Ditulis ulang dari buku “Principles of Brazilian Football” (Jose Thadeu Goncalves) oleh: Joko Hartono

              Dalam menguasai dan menerima bola, ada 6 tingkatan progress yang harus dicapai dalam sebuah latihan:

              Pertama, penerima bola harus berada pada posisi diagonal terhadap bola ketika bertahan dan menyerang karena pergerakan bola tik-tak sangat berbahaya, latihan ini mampu mengurangi kecepatan penyerangan dan membuat permainan lawan lebih mudah dibaca oleh pemain bertahan.

              Kedua, penerima bola harus menghadapi pemain yang memegang bola, sambil memberikan kode jika telah siap untuk menerima bola.

              Ketiga, ketika bola diberikan, si penerima harus bergerak menuju bola untuk menghindari antisipasi dari pemain lawan.

              Keempat, jika memungkinkan si penerima bola harus mendapatkan bola hanya dengan satu sentuhan. Jika si penerima berada di daerah pertahanannya dan mendapatkan pressure lawan, pilihan yang terbaik adalah mengantisipasi bola dengan kepalanya menjauhkan bola dari pertahanan.

              Kelima, penerima bola harus menerima bola sambil memutar tubuhnya ke arah berlawanan dimana bola tersebut datang, dan yang paling penting, perubahan arah bola, jika datangnya dari atas; sentuhan keduanya harus segera memberikan bola ke teman, jika tidak memungkinkan, mainkan bola di bawah penguasaan penuh.

              Keenam, si penerima harus menggunakan lengannya untuk melindungi dirinya dari pressure lawan dan posisi lutut dibengkokan untuk membantu keseimbangan, bola yang lebih tinggi daripada lutut harus dapat diterima menggunakan kaki yang diangkat sehingga terhindar dari cedera karena bertabrakan dengan pemain bertahan lawan (teknik menerima bola atas dengan kaki berada di tanah berpotensi menimbulkan cedera lutut dan engkel).

              Akan lebih baik yaitu dengan mengkombinasikan positioning terhadap ketinggian dan kekuatan bola karena positioning menjadi hal yang paling utama dalam menerima dan menguasai bola.

              Macam-Macam Cara Menerima Bola

              Kaki

              Kaki paling baik digunakan untuk bola di permukaan tanah (jenis bola yang paling mudah diterima). Hal yang harus diperhatikan: Bagian dari kaki yang digunakan untuk menerima bola adalah bagian yang berdekatan dengan bola atau bahkan bersentuhan langsung saat diterima, intensitas pressure lawan terhadap si penerima bola, dan arah yang diinginkan si penerima setelah menerima bola, yaitu:

              (a) Kaki bagian dalam:

              Teknik yang paling sering digunakan menerima bola; teknik seperti ini sangat umum digunakan ketika si penerima mendapatkan pressure dari lawan dan dituntut harus bermain aman; Untuk menerima bola di bagian tengahnya gunakan kaki bagian tengah dengan telapak kaki dimiringkan agar bola tidak memantul, tumit diangkat (jari-jari kaki diangkat ke atas) untuk mencegah bola terlepas dari penguasaan dan posisi kaki yang menerima bola berada di depan kaki yang tidak menerima bola (posisinya dibengkokan); di titik pada saat menerima, kaki yang menerima bola diayunkan ke belakang sehingga sekarang posisi kedua kaki sejajar dan bola berada di antaranya; dan jangan lupa lengan diangkat dan lutut dibengkokan agar tersedia ruang banginya untuk bergerak dan menghindari sergapan lawan.

              (b) Kaki bagian luar:

              Biasanya digunakan ketika pressure dari pemain bertahan lawan datang dari belakang si penerima (Masternya adalah Dunga mantan pemain timnas Brazil) atau ketika pressure dari lawan cukup jauh dan ada ruang untuk menyerang ke pertahanan lawan dengan cepat (Masternya adalah Ronaldo mantan pemain Inter Milan dan timnas Brazil); respon seperti itu membantu membangun serangan balik yang cepat; kaki bagian luar dimiringkan dimana sebelumnya kaki yang menerima berada di depan tetapi menahan bola kemudian sejajar kembali dengan kaki lainnya; bagian luar lengan diangkat sejajar bahu untuk melindungi diri dari gerakan lawan.; Jika bola yang diterima terlepas dari penguasaan dengan kaki bagian luar ini menunujukan keputusasaan sebagai konsekuensi dari presure tinggi yang diterapkan lawan saat menerima bola dengan reaksi yang lambat dari penerima; masalah paling utama menggunakan kaki bagian luar adalah jika tekniknya kurang dikuasai maka beresiko mengundang cedera pada lutut.

              ( c) Bagian telapak kaki:

              Teknik ini digunakan ketika si penerima bermain di wilayah pertahanan (dekat dengan gawang), dia ingin memberikan waktu bagi pemain belakang untuk mendekati gelandang atau bagi penyerang agar gelandang segera menekan dan menutup ruang (Romario, mantan pemain timnas Brazil menggunakan teknik ini ketika Piala Dunia 1994); Ada 3 keadaan menguntungkan jika menggunakan teknik seperti ini : (1) Memberikan waktu yang cukup bagi pemain lain untuk menutup ruang/jarak dengan penyerang, (2) Overlapping, (3) Membangun keseimbangan posisi sebelum menentukan keputusan apakah memutar kemudian menembak atau menunggu kemudian memberikan bola kepada pemain lain yang berlari dari belakang; ingat poin penting ini; bagian kaki yang menerima harus sejauh mungkin dari pressure lawan; si penerima membengkokan dadanya, lengan diangkat setinggi bahu untuk menghalau pressure lawan; lutut yang tidak menerima bola harus dibengkokan; dan keseimbangan tubuh harus dijaga terhadap pressure lawan.

              Paha

              (Digunakan untuk menerima bola yang datangnya lebih tinggi daripada lutut tetapi lebih rendah daripada pinggang). Paha si penerima harus menghadap bola ketika datang dan bergerak maju untuk menyongsong bola; kaki diangkat dan dibengkokan 60 derajat, otot paha menjadi rileks sehingga bola yang diterima akan meluncur mulus ke tanah.

              Dada

              (Bagian dari tubuh yang biasanya digunakan untuk menerima bola yang datangnya lebih tinggi daripada pinggang tetapi tidak dapat dijangkau oleh kaki). Si penerima membusungkan dadanya ketika di udara kemudian melepaskannya sesaat setelah menyentuh bola; dada diposisikan menghadap langit untuk mengantisipasi jika penerimaan bola kurang baik, diharapkan bola akan memantul kemudian jatuh ke lapangan ketika sentuhan kedua.

              Kepala

              (Tidak lumrah untuk menguasai bola menggunakan kepala, karena akan mengakibatkan hal yang tidak diharapkan seperti serangan balik). Pemain menggunakan kepala khususnya bagian dahi dengan posisi leher yang kokoh sebelum bola diterima; bola akan berada pada penguasaan penuh; si pemain mengikuti bola dengan matanya dan menunggu bola jatuh ke tanah sebelum kemudian di-dribling atau ditendang.
                        Tips Buat Kiper Futsal   
              Perlengkapan:

              Seragam:
              Buat gwa sih biasa pake kaos tanpa busa lengan pendek, dan celana pendek
              biar gak gerah dan leluasa gerak aja
              or tergantung lapangannya..pernah pas turnamen di soccer rumputna bikin lecet
              jadi liat kondisi lapangan aja

              Sarung Tangan:
              Kalo kayak di PialaDunia Futsal 2008 di Brazil, banyak Kiper yang gak pake Sarung tangan sih...ada yang tangan telanjang aatau pake kayak karet di jari gitu lupa namanya biar gak patah
              kalo aku sih pake sarung tangan aja masih tetap ngilu2 nahan tendangan penalti temen
              Yang dimaksud sarung tangan futsal menurutku ya sarung tangan "half" dengan ujung jari/kuku tidak tertutup, karena bagi ku sendiri sangat susah menangkap atau menepis, jadi lebih diarahkan "meninju"


              Awalnya pake Adidas Futsal Sala Hitam no.10, tapi udah koyak dihantam tendangan temen2
              Terus pake Mitzuda Orange, lentur tapi terlalu tipis bahannya, gak meredam.
              Sekarang lagi pake sarung tangan Lotto, bahan tebal dan ada fitur plastik tebel di punggung tangan

              Sepatu:
              Dari dulu ampe sekarang tetep pake Adidas Biasa Futsal Sala Gold yang paling Murah..mayan Ringan dan awet sih...meskipun sekarang udah jebol-jebol...ga ada duid ^^;
              pernah nyoba Adidas Real Madrid Edition, tapi berat banget....nyoba sepatu kets biasa malah ga ada cengkramannya sama sekali....

              Posisi StandBy Kiper:
              gwa ga pernah ngerti & belajar ilmu khusus kiper jadi otodidak dan pengalaman aja...

              Posisi Siap:
              1.Posisi X
              Kedua Kaki menekuk membentuk X, ke dua telapak tangan menghadap depan setara lutut, jarak antara kaki dan tangan kira2 1-10cm disesuaikan. posisi pantat naik-turun selama diserang
              +:untuk bola atas dapat menambah daya pegas
              -:sangat riskan untuk bola bawah

              2. Posisi L
              Salah kaki berdiri diatas lutut, kaki satunya ditekuk,ke dua telapak tangan menghadap depan setara lutut,jarak antara kaki dan tangan kira2 1-10cm disesuaikan.Jika bisa perpendek jarak dengan penendang
              +:sangat bagus untuk one on one dan bola bawah
              -:Posisi tidak flexible, kiper dipastikan terlambat respon jika bola dioper

              Posisi One By One
              Jika dalam kondisi one by one dapat melakukan salah satu dari kedua posisi diatas atau;
              Posisi menyergap...lari dari posisi semula, rebahkan badan menyergap dengan posisi tangan diatas kepala, arahkan badan memblok jalur bola...yah mungkin kayak kiper sepak bola by one begitu...
              Note:Biasanya aku pakai posisi ke 2 karena ada teman yang menutup pergerakan musuh, jika benar2 kosong defense kita, aku rush pake 3....

              Posisi Penalti
              Mungkin aku teringat Santiago Canizares ketika Valencia VS Muenchen Final Champions tahun 2000an
              Dia mendeterminasi penendang dengan cara didekati(kayak 2 petinju mau lawan tanding) kalo lo punya muka sangar bisa dicoba...atau tiap kali bola ditaruh di titik pinalti dibauh/protes aja, bilangaja geser,ga pass. mungkin konsennya terganggu.

              Kemudian Tangan Direntangkan agar seolah2 menutupi gawang(kalo kamu punya badan besar)
              diem juga bisa tanpa gerakan apapun...

              Kalo dulu pas SMA, Pas Semifinal Liga SMA..diajarin liat mata penendang, biasanya sebelum/atau beberapa detik sebelum menendang melihat arah tendangan..jadi kiper bisa meloncat terlebih dahulu...pengalaman ku dulu terbukti 5 dari 5 tendangan penalti pas adu penalti tebakan arah benar...

              Posisi Defense
              Kiper teriak2 aja ngatur temen2nya..hehe

              Pas tendangan bebas yang sangat dekat, kiper dengan posisi 2 menjadi 1 dengan pagar(2 orang) di arah depan penendang, sisanya dapat mengawal musuh

              Posisi Offense
              Bisa langsung Long throw pas counter ke arah temenmu(yang jangkung kalo bisa) untuk disundul atau gimana caranya agar gol, pas latihan 2: 10 sih percobaannya
              Ketika short throw bisa kayak basket melihat ke arah kakan tapi melempar kearah kiri, aq sering pake ini dan mayan berguna ketika musuh mempress area kita

              Cara Lemparan Kiper:
              1.Lemparan basket
              ke dua tangan memegang bola dari sisi kanan dan kiri, kemudian menolaknya(melempar) secara bersamaan dengan posisi ketiak terbuka
              2.Lemparan Sofball
              lempar pake satu tangan kayak biasa, biasanya ada efek melintir yang mengakibatkan bola susah dikontrol bila tidak biasa
              3.Lemparan bowling
              Gulirkan aja bola menyusur lapangan...biasanya dipake jarak pendek aja...
                        Menyiapkan Program Latihan Fisik Sepakbola   
              Ditulis ulang dari buku “Principles of Brazilian Football” (Jose Thadeu Goncalves) oleh: Joko Hartono

              Salah satu kunci sukses pembinaan sepakbola usia muda adalah diterapkannya Total Training Method: Program ini merupakan kombinasi dari berbagai bagian yang dibutuhkan untuk membentuk performa dan fisik pemain yang baik tanpa membahayakan kesehatan. Bagian – bagian dalam program ini adalah: Perencanaan dan manajemen, kontrol medis, kebiasaan, nutrisi makanan, adaptasi terhadap program latihan, psikologis, teknis dan prinsip pembentukan fisik. Selain itu, ada 5 faktor penting yang harus dianalisis ketika menyiapkan prinsip pembentukan fisik berdasarkan filosofi Total Training Method adalah:

              Interaksi antara program pembentukan fisik dan teknik yang didukung oleh aspek psikologis
              Mengevaluasi perencanaan tahunan secara konsisten untuk meyakinkan para pemain pada suatu kelompok masih tetap fokus terhadap tujuan pelatihan
              Evaluasi terhadap pemain dibuat terpisah berdasarkan prioritas kelompok
              Mengorganisir program dan latihan yang spesifik berdasarkan frekuensi, intensitas dan banyakknya latihan.
              Selalu memperhitungkan faktor motivasi, hal – hal yang perlu dianalisis di antaranya :
              Kemampuan fisik dari setiap pemain
              Kesehatan dari setiap pemain agar tetap terbebas dari sakit atau cedera (latihan harus aman, jangan pernah mengambil resiko dengan memaksakan pemain berlatih jika kondisi kesehatan mereka tidak fit 100%)
              Jenis latihan yang harus dikondisikan dengan keadaan cuaca (jika kondisi dingin, latihan dilakukan di dalam ruangan, begitu juga saat hujan). Lokasi, selalu menukar tempat latihan pemain untuk mencegah kebosanan

              Sebelum kami menjelaskan hal penting pada fisik dan mengilustrasikannya dengan beberapa program latihan, berikut ini merupakan langkah – langkah dalam menyiapkan pemain sebelum menjalani pelatihan fisik:

              Istirahat, pemain harus menjalani masa penyembuhan. Periode ini dibagi menjadi 3 situasi berbeda. Waktu tidur minimal 8 jam. Jika berlatih 2x sehari, pemain harus diberikan waktu istirahat untuk memulihkan kondisi fisiknya dan meregangkan mental dan emosinya. Waktu istirahat yang kurang dapat mempengaruhi kualitas permainan karena meningkatnya level stress dan emosi.
              Nutrisi makanan, pemain harus menyeimbangkan diet berdasarkan kadar nutrisi harian yang diperlukan oleh tubuh. Nutrisi tersebut di antaranya: Vitamin, protein, garam mineral, karbohidrat, dan lemak. Karbohidrat sangat penting karena mampu menghasilkan energi.
              Cuaca, menghindari latihan ketika cuaca ekstrem panas (menyebabkan dehidrasi) atau dingin/hujan (mengundang penyakit).

              Pemanasan sebelum Latihan Fisik ala Brazil

              Pada bagian ini akan laskan kepada para pelatih mengenai jenis – jenis latihan fisik yang diterapkan di Brazil. Pemanasan ala Brazil ini bisa meningkatkan kelenturan, kegesitan dan keseimbangan.

              Pemanasan tanpa bola : Lakukan sebelum bermain, dimulai dari lari – lari kecil hingga lari sprint sesuai perintah pelatih. Pola lari dilakukan secara bergantian dengan jeda waktu yang cepat dan usahakan agar pemain selalu tetap bergerak. Pemanasan ini sangat baik karena menggerakan seluruh tubuh, akan lebih baik lagi jika intensitas lebih lama.

              Intensitas latihan ini bagi kelompok umur : U8-U10 : 6-8 kali; U12-U14 : 10-12 kali; U16 ke atas : 13-15 kali dengan detail latihan sebagai berikut:
              Latihan #1. Lari dengan mengayunkan kedua tangan ke atas kepala dan searah pundak.
              Latihan #2. Lari dengan mengayunkan kedua tangan ke kiri dan ke kanan.
              Latihan #3. Lari dengan meregangkan ke dua tangan ke dalam dan keluar.
              Latihan #4. Lari dengan menarik kedua tangan dari muka ke arah dada.
              Latihan #5. Lari dengan memutar badan dari pinggul ke kanan dan ke kiri.
              Latihan #6. Lari kemudian berhenti, posisi kaki kanan di depan kaki kiri di belakang dan tangan kanan ke atas tangan kiri ke bawah, lakukan bergantian.
              Latihan #7. Lari kemudian berhenti, wajah tolehkan ke kanan kemudian ke kiri. Lakukan berulang.
              Latihan #8. Lari kemudian tendang kaki kanan ke arah depan hingga menyentuh tangan kanan yang direnggangkan ke depan. Ulangi untuk kaki dan tangan kiri.
              Latihan #9. Lari kemudian tendang kaki kanan ke arah kiri, ulangi untuk kaki kiri ke arah yang berlawanan.
              Latihan #10. Lari kemudian angkat kaki kanan ditekuk di bagian lutut dan ayunkan ke kiri, lakukan bergantian dengan kaki kiri.
              Latihan #11. Lari kemudian angkat kaki kanan ditekuk di bagian lutut dan ayunkan ke depan, lakukan bergantian dengan kaki kiri.
              Latihan #12 Lari kemudian tendang kaki ke arah belakang sentuh dengan tangan



              Pemanasan dengan bola : Pemanasan ala Brazil identik dengan 4 jenis latihan yang dapat meningkatkan respons. Pemanasan harus dilakukan secara intens, terus menerus, dan menggerakan badan dari posisi yang simpel hingga yang kompleks. 4 jenis pemanasan itu adalah :
              Latihan tanpa gerakan maju dan mundur. Latihan ini dapat meningkatkan respons pada situasi tanpa pressure.
              Latihan dengan bola, yaitu : Jungkir balik, sit-down, stand-up dan lainnya. Latihan ini dapat meningkatkan respon pada situasi yang tidak dapat diprediksi atau respon terhadap arah bola yang tidak bisa ditebak.
              Latihan dengan sprint jarak pendek, setelah menendang bola sejauh 15 meter, sprint ke arah berhentinya bola, kemudian kembali ke titik awal, lakukan berulang-ulang.
              Latihan dengan gerakan maju-mundur di lapangan.

              Kami merekomendasikan bola karet untuk pemain U-14. Hal ini ditujukan untuk melatih konsentrasi, bola karet yang terbuat dari karet membutuhkan presisi ketika menerima dan mengumpan, karena bola karet akan lebih memantul ketika dikontrol. Porsi latihan dengan bola karet berdasarkan umur: U8-U10 / 30 detik; U12-U14 / 45 detik; U16 ke atas / 60 detik dengan rician sebagai berikut:



              Latihan pemanasan dengan partner (4 posisi ketinggian bola):
              Posisi bola di tanah:
              Menggiring bola dengan mengubah kaki yang digunakan untuk mengontrol bola. Untuk U8-U10 : 2 sentuhan dan U12-U18 : 1 sentuhan.
              Latihan di tempat (sama dengan latihan #1), tetapi ada gerakan tambahan berupa sit-down, stand-up dan lainnya.
              Partner berdiri pada jarak 6 kaki dari posisi kita kemudian menendang bola sejauh kira-kira 30 meter kemudian kita mengejarnya dan memberikannya lagi, lakukan secara berulang.
              Sprint jarak pendek.
              Posisi bola setinggi pinggang:
              Latihan ini dilakukan dengan menendang bola ke udara kemudian diterima oleh partner menggunakan bagian tubuh di bawah pinggang, namun ketika mengembalikan bola harus ditendang menyusur tanah. Lakukan secara berulang.
              Menahan bola dengan dada:
              Salah satu pemain mengumpankan bola dengan cara melemparkannya ke udara, kemudian partnernya harus menerima menggunakan dada. Latihan ini ditujukan untuk melatih pemain ketika berada pada situasi di bawah tekanan lawan.
              Sundulan:
              Salah satu pemain mengumpankan bola dengan cara melemparkannya ke udara, kemudian partnernya akan mengembalikan bola dengan menyundulnya secara offensive ataupun defensive, lakukan secara berulang dan acak. Kemudian saling tukar posisi. Latihan ini tidak direkomendasikan untuk pemain U8 – U10.

                        If the intention is to discourage non-Muslims from keeping dogs, then I for one am discouraged   
              I can still remember years ago when I went to the Post Office and asked to pay for a dog's licence,
              "...atas nama..." and the staff laughed. Then I found out that it had to be renewed at the local council, MD Kinta Barat which is now known as MD Batu Gajah. For a number of years, I had been to their Enforcement Office to fill in a simple form and had it paid at the payment counter.

              Yesterday, after having paid assessment bills, I thought of renewing our 2 dog licences. I was directed by Enforcement officer to Licence Dept in the main building. When given the new form, I was frustrated at the long list of requirements when applying for a dog licence. It would certainly take days and extra expense in order to comply. I am afraid, while doing so, just one condition unmet could mean no licence given. Going through the form, here are the requirements (translated from BM):-

              1. Full picture of dog
              2. 2 copies of photo of applicant/owner of dog
              3. copy of IC of applicant
              4. photo of surrounding area of premises
              5. photo of kennel
              6. letter of opinion of neighbours (left, right and back)
              7. Vet's letter of examination/certificate from Jabatan Haiwan.

              Conditions for dog licence:

              1. Dog above 3 months old requires a licence from MDBG.

              2. Maximum number of dogs allowed according to premises:
              i. Bungalow: 2
              ii. Semi-D & Cluster: 2
              iii. Terrace Corner Lot: 2
              iv. Terrace End Lot: 1
              v. Intermediate Terrace: 1
              vi. Factory and Executive Club: 2
              vii. Area of factory exceeding 930 sq.m.: 4

              3. Type of premises requiring neighbour's opinion:
              i. Intermediate terrace (toy dog only): left and right
              ii. End Lot or Corner Lot: left or right
              iii. Bungalow, Semi-D or Cluster: left, right and back
              iv. Factory and Executive Club: left or right

              4. Signboard warning presence of dog

              5. Breeds of dogs prohibited: Akita, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brazilireo, Japanese Tosa, Neapolitan Mastiff, Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

              6. Rottweiler is not prohibited but new owner has to get confirmation of its physical health from Veterinar Negeri Perak (5-5459111). Those with existing licence can renew until death of the dog.

              7. Owner of dog has to:-
              i. have a kennel and ensure
              ii. its clean condition
              iii. disposal of dog shit without offending others
              iv. ensure dog is not a nuisance to neighbours
              v. ensure dog is kept within premises and if taken out, must be leashed and wears muzzle
              vi. ensure dog is not taken to public places to shit
              vii. dog wears a tag at all times.

              8. Any dog above the age of 3 months, seen in public without a licence tag, MDBG can catch and disposed of it.

              9. Owner of dog must ensure it is vaccinated yearly.

              10. All rules and regulations will be in accordance with direction from MDBG from time to time.

              12. Fees for dog licence and tag: 1. licence Rm10  2. tag Rm10.

              After all that, I don't feel like starting the process of compliance. Sigh.

              Letter to The Star: Doggone unhappy with the new rules

              THE Batu Gajah District Council (MDBG) has issued new regulations taking effect from February 2017 on applications for a dog licence.
              Some of the regulations are absurd. For example, the applicant must produce a medical report on the health of the dog and this must be signed by a veterinary surgeon. Proof that the immediate neighbours are okay with having the dog around and photographs of the owner, the dog, the house premises, kennel and etc. must also be provided. Failure to apply for a dog licence will incur a stiff fine
              Does MDBG have the manpower to check on all the residents to see if they have complied with the regulations? How is MDBG going to find out who are keeping dogs in their backyard?
              I also wonder if the same rules are being imposed by other local councils throughout the country.
              DISGUSTED
              The Star: No dogs until neighbours agree by Ivan Loh
              IPOH: The Batu Gajah District Council (MDBG) has become the first in Perak to require dog owners to seek consent from their neighbours if they want a dog licence.
              It is now running a trial on this, covering residents who want to get a pet dog for the first time.
              “This is to ensure better management of the pets and to ensure there are fewer complaints from the people,” said council president Nurdiana Puaadi, adding that the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council had a similar requirement which had been proven to be successful.
              Nurdiana cited cases of a household keeping three dogs but only one was licensed, adding that the MDBG had received numerous complaints about dogs that barked non-stop.
              “Once the neighbours give their approval, they cannot complain to us,” said Nurdiana, adding existing dog owners should also get their neighbours’ approval.
              “This will also help keep stray dog problems in check,” she said.
              The application form states that residents staying at terrace lots need the consent from neighbours from both sides.
              Those staying in bungalows, semi-detached and cluster homes need the agreement from neighbours on both sides and at the back. Owners also need to put up a sign to show that they have a dog.
              The types of dogs not allowed to be kept include Akita, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro, Japanese Tosa, Neapolitan Mastiff, Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
              Rottweilers are allowed but owners need to produce health reports from the Veterinary Services Department for new applications. Those who have been keeping Rottweilers can renew the licence until the pet dies.
              It also states that those living in bungalows, semi-detached or terrace corner lots can keep a maximum of two dogs, while residents in terrace end lots and terrace intermediate lots can only keep one.
              Other stipulations include urging owners to keep their dogs clean and healthy and to ensure pets do not disturb neighbours with incessant barking.
              Owners must also ensure their dogs do not roam unsupervised and must be muzzled and leashed when they are out. Dogs three years or older found without a licence can be impounded and put down.
              Owners can also be fined a maximum of RM2,000 or jailed not more than a year or both if found guilty under any provisions of the Dog Licensing and Dog Breeding House By-laws.
