          4 Hidden Dangers of Pork   
Pork is the most commonly consumed meat in the world, but may also be one of the most dangerous.

Among foods that inspire a cult-like following, pork often leads the pack, as evidenced by the 65% of Americans eager to name bacon the country’s national food.

Unfortunately, that popularity comes at a cost. Along with being the most commonly consumed meat in the world, pork may also be one of the most dangerous, carrying some important and under-discussed risks that any consumer should be aware of (1).

1. Hepatitis E

Thanks to the revival of nose-to-tail eating, offal has redeemed itself among health enthusiasts, especially liver, which is prized for its vitamin A content and massive mineral lineup.

But when it comes to pork, liver might be risky business.

In developed nations, pork liver is the top food-based transmitter of hepatitis E, a virus that infects 20 million people each year and can lead to acute illness (fever, fatigue, jaundice, vomiting, joint pain and stomach pain), enlarged liver and sometimes liver failure and death (23).

Most hepatitis E cases are stealthily symptom-free, but pregnant women can experience violent reactions to the virus, including fulminant hepatitis (rapid-onset liver failure) and a high risk of both maternal and fetal mortality (4). In fact, mothers who get infected during their third trimester face a death rate of up to 25% (5).

In rare cases, hepatitis E infection can lead to myocarditis (an inflammatory heart disease), acute pancreatitis (painful inflammation of the pancreas), neurological problems (including Guillain-Barré syndrome and neuralgic amyotrophy), blood disorders and musculoskeletal problems, such as elevated creatine phosphokinase, indicating muscle damage, and multi-joint pain (in the form of polyarthralgia) (678).

People with compromised immune systems, including organ transplant recipients on immunosuppressive therapy and people with HIV, are more likely to suffer from these severe hepatitis E complications (9).

So, just how alarming are pork’s contamination stats? In America, about 1 out of every 10 store-bought pig livers tests positive for hepatitis E, which is slightly higher than the 1 in 15 rate in the Netherlands and 1 in 20 rate in the Czech Republic (1011). One study in Germany found that about 1 in 5 pork sausages were contaminated (12).

France’s traditional figatellu, a pig liver sausage that’s often consumed raw, is a confirmed hepatitis E carrier (13). In fact, in regions of France where raw or rare pork is a common delicacy, over half the local population shows evidence of hepatitis E infection (14).

Japan, too, is facing rising hepatitis E concerns as pork gains popularity (15). And in the UK? Hepatitis E shows up in pork sausages, in pork liver and at pork slaughterhouses, indicating the potential for widespread exposure among pork consumers (16).

It might be tempting to blame the hepatitis E epidemic on commercial farming practices, but in the case of the pig, wilder doesn’t mean safer. Hunted boars, too, are frequent hepatitis E carriers, capable of passing on the virus to game-eating humans (1718).

Apart from total pork abstinence, the best way to slash hepatitis E risk is in the kitchen. This stubborn virus can survive the temperatures of rare-cooked meat, making high heat the best weapon against infection (19). For virus deactivation, cooking pork products for at least 20 minutes to an internal temperature of 71°C (160°F) seems to do the trick (20).

However, fat can protect hepatitis viruses from heat destruction, so fattier cuts of pork might need extra time or toastier temperatures (21).

Summary: Pork products, particularly liver, frequently carry hepatitis E, which can cause severe complications and even death in vulnerable populations. Thorough cooking is necessary to deactivate the virus.

2. Multiple Sclerosis

One of the most surprising risks associated with pork — one that’s received remarkably little airtime — is multiple sclerosis (MS), a devastating autoimmune condition involving the central nervous system.

The robust link between pork and MS has been known at least since the 1980s, when researchers analyzed the relationship between per capita pork consumption and MS across dozens of countries (22).

While pork-averse nations like Israel and India were nearly spared from MS’s degenerative grips, more liberal consumers, such as West Germany and Denmark, faced sky-high rates.

In fact, when all countries were considered, pork intake and MS showed a whopping correlation of 0.87 (p<0.001), which is much higher and more significant than the relationship between MS and fat intake (0.63, p<0.01), MS and total meat intake (0.61, p<0.01) and MS and beef consumption (no significant relationship).

For perspective, a similar study of diabetes and per capita sugar intake found a correlation of just under 0.60 (p<0.001) when analyzing 165 countries (23).

As with all epidemiological findings, the correlation between pork consumption and MS can’t prove that one causes the other (or even that, within MS-stricken countries, the most enthusiastic pork consumers were the most diseased). But as it turns out, the evidence vault goes much deeper.

Earlier, a study of inhabitants of the Orkney and Shetland Islands of Scotland, a region teeming with unusual delicacies, including seabird eggs, raw milk and undercooked meat, found only one dietary association with MS — consumption of “potted head,” a dish made from boiled pig’s brain (24).

Among Shetland residents, a significantly higher proportion of MS patients had consumed potted head in their youth, compared to healthy, age and sex-matched controls (25).

This is particularly relevant because — per other research — MS that strikes in adulthood might stem from environmental exposures during adolescence (26).

The potential for pig brain to trigger nerve-related autoimmunity isn’t just an observational hunch, either. Between 2007 and 2009, a cluster of 24 pork plant workers mysteriously fell ill with progressive inflammatory neuropathy, which is characterized by MS-like symptoms such as fatigue, numbness, tingling and pain (2728).

The source of the outbreak? So-called “pig brain mist” — tiny particles of brain tissue blasted into the air during carcass processing (29).

When workers inhaled these tissue particles, their immune systems, per standard protocol, formed antibodies against the foreign porcine antigens.

But those antigens happened to bear an uncanny resemblance to certain neural proteins in humans. And the result was a biological calamity: confused about who to fight, the workers’ immune systems launched a guns-blazing attack on their own nerve tissue (3031).

Although the resulting autoimmunity wasn’t identical to multiple sclerosis, that same process of molecular mimicry, where foreign antigens and self-antigens are similar enough to trigger an autoimmune response, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of MS (3233).

Of course, unlike pig brain mist, hot dogs and ham aren’t literally inhaled (teenage boys notwithstanding). Could pork still transmit problematic substances through ingestion?

The answer is a speculative yes. For one, certain bacteria, particularly Acinetobacter, are involved in molecular mimicry with myelin, the nerve-sheathing substance that becomes damaged in MS (3435).

Although the role of pigs as Acinetobacter carriers hasn’t been exhaustively studied, the bacteria has been found in pig feces, on pig farms and in bacon, pork salami and ham, where it serves as a spoilage organism (36373839). If pork acts as a vehicle for Acinetobacter transmission (or in any way increases the risk of human infection), a link with MS would make sense.

Two, pigs may be silent and under-studied carriers of prions, misfolded proteins that drive neurodegenerative disorders like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the human version of mad cow) and Kuru (found among cannibal societies) (40).

Some researchers suggest MS itself could be a prion disease, one that targets oligodendrocytes, the cells that produce myelin (41). And since prions — and their associated diseases— are transmitted by consuming infected nerve tissue, it’s possible that prion-harboring pork products could be one link in the MS chain (42).

Summary: A causative role of pork in MS is far from a closed case, but the unusually strong epidemiological patterns, biological plausibility and documented experiences make further research imperative.

3. Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

Liver problems tend to trail closely on the heels of some predictable risk factors, namely hepatitis B and C infection, exposure to aflatoxin (a carcinogen produced by mold) and excessive alcohol intake (434445).

But buried in the scientific literature is another potential scourge of liver health — pork.

For decades, pork consumption has faithfully echoed liver cancer and cirrhosis rates around the world. In multi-country analyses, the correlation between pork and cirrhosis mortality clocked in at 0.40 (p<0.05) using 1965 data, 0.89 (p<0.01) using mid-1970s data, 0.68 (p=0.003) using 1996 data and 0.83 (p=0.000) using 2003 data (4647).

In those same analyses, among the 10 Canadian provinces, pork bore a correlation of 0.60 (p<0.01) with death from liver cirrhosis, while alcohol, perhaps due to an overall low intake, showed no significant link.

And in statistical models incorporating known perils for the liver (alcohol consumption, hepatitis B infection and hepatitis C infection), pork remained independently associated with liver disease, suggesting the association isn’t just due to pork piggybacking, as the case may be, on a different causative agent (48).

Beef, by contrast, remained liver-neutral or protective in these studies.

Liver cancer, too, tends to follow in the hoof steps of the pig. A 1985 analysis showed that pork intake correlated with hepatocellular carcinoma deaths as strongly as alcohol did (0.40, p<0.05 for both) (49). (Considering liver cirrhosis is often a prelude to cancer, this connection shouldn’t be surprising (50).)

So, what’s behind these eerie associations?

At first glance, the most likely explanations don’t pan out. Although pork-transmitted hepatitis E can lead to liver cirrhosis, this happens almost exclusively in immunosuppressed people, a subset of the population that’s too small to account for the global correlation (51).

Relative to other meat, pork tends to be high in omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, which may play a role in liver disease (525354). But vegetable oils, whose polyunsaturated fatty acid content blows pork out of the water, don’t dance the same liver disease tango that pork does, calling into question whether fat is really to blame (5556).

Heterocyclic amines, a class of carcinogens formed by cooking meat (including pork) at high temperatures, contribute to liver cancer in a variety of animals (57). But these compounds are also readily formed in beef, according to the same studies that indicated pork has no positive relationship with liver disease (5859).

With all that in mind, it’d be easy to dismiss the pork-liver disease link as an epidemiological fluke. However, some plausible mechanisms do exist.

The most likely contender involves nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic compounds created when nitrites and nitrates react with certain amines (from protein), particularly in high heat (60). These compounds have been linked to damage and cancer in a variety of organs, including the liver (61).

One of the biggest dietary sources of nitrosamines is processed pork, which, along with being a frequent visitor to the frying pan, typically contains nitrites and nitrates as curing agents. (Vegetables are also rich in naturally occurring nitrates, but their antioxidant content and dearth of protein help thwart the process of N-nitrosation, preventing them from becoming cancer-causing agents (62).)

Significant levels of nitrosamines have been found in pork liver pâté, bacon, sausage, ham and other cured meats (636465). The fatty portion of pork products, in particular, tends to accumulate much higher levels of nitrosamines than the lean bits, making bacon a particularly abundant source (66).

The presence of fat can also turn vitamin C into a nitrosamine promoter instead of a nitrosamine inhibitor, so pairing pork with veggies might not confer much protection (67).

Although much of the nitrosamine-liver cancer research has focused on rodents, where certain nitrosamines produce liver injury with remarkable ease, the effect appears in humans as well (6869). In fact, some researchers suggest humans may be even more sensitive to nitrosamines than mice and rats (70).

In Thailand, for instance, nitrosamines have been strongly linked to liver cancer in areas where other risk factors are low (71). A 2010 analysis of the NIH-AARP cohort found red meat (including pork), processed meat (including processed pork), nitrates and nitrites to be positively associated with chronic liver disease. Rubber workers, occupationally exposed to nitrosamines, have faced extremely high rates of non-alcohol-related liver disease and cancer (72).

Do nitrosamines prove a chain of causation between pork, liver-harming compounds and liver disease? The evidence is currently too patchy to make that claim, but the risk is plausible enough to justify limiting nitrosamine-containing (or nitrosamine-producing) pork products, including bacon, ham, hot dogs and sausages made with sodium nitrite or potassium nitrate.

Summary: Strong epidemiological links exist between pork consumption and liver disease. If these links reflect cause and effect, one culprit might be N-nitroso compounds, which are found abundantly in processed pork products cooked at high temperatures.

4. Yersinia

For years, pork’s precautionary motto was “well-done or bust,” a consequence of fears about trichinosis, a type of roundworm infection that ravaged pork consumers throughout much of the 20th century (73).

Thanks to changes in feeding practices, farm hygiene and quality control, pig-borne trichinosis has dropped off the radar, inviting pink pork back onto the menu.

But pork’s relaxed heat rules may have opened the doors for a different type of infection — yersiniosis, which is caused by Yersinia bacteria. In the US alone, Yersiniacauses 35 deaths and almost 117,000 cases of food poisoning each year (74). Its chief entry route for humans? Undercooked pork.

Yersiniosis’s acute symptoms are rough enough — fever, pain, bloody diarrhea — but its long-term consequences are what should really ring alarm bells. Victims of Yersiniapoisoning face a 47-times higher risk of reactive arthritis, a type of inflammatory joint disease triggered by infection (75).

Even children become post-Yersinia arthritis targets, sometimes requiring chemical synovectomy (the injection of osmic acid into a troubled joint) to relieve persistent pain (7677).

And in the less-common instances where Yersinia doesn’t bring the typical feverish, diarrheic unpleasantries? Reactive arthritis can develop even when the original infection was asymptomatic, leaving some victims unaware that their arthritis is a consequence of food-borne illness (78).

Although reactive arthritis usually subsides on its own over time, Yersinia victims remain at higher risk of chronic joint problems, including ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, tenosynovitis and rheumatoid arthritis, for years on end (798081).

Some evidence suggests that Yersinia can lead to neurological complications (82). Infected individuals with iron overload may be at higher risk of multiple liver abscesses, potentially leading to death (838485). And among people who are genetically susceptible, anterior uveitis, inflammation of the eye’s iris, is also more likely following a bout of Yersinia (8687).

Lastly, via molecular mimicry, Yersinia infection could also raise the risk of Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition characterized by excessive thyroid hormone production (8889).

The solution? Bring on the heat. The majority of pork products (69% of tested samples, according to a Consumer Reports analysis) are contaminated with Yersiniabacteria, and the only way to safeguard against infection is through proper cooking. An internal temperature of at least 145°F for whole pork and 160°F for ground pork is necessary to decimate any lingering pathogen.

Summary: Undercooked pork can transmit Yersinia bacteria, causing short-term illness and raising the risk of reactive arthritis, chronic joint conditions, Graves’ disease and other complications.

In Conclusion

So, should health-savvy omnivores scrap pork from the menu?

The jury’s still out. For two of pork’s problems — hepatitis E and Yersinia — aggressive cooking and safe handling are enough to minimize the risk. And due to a shortage of controlled, pork-centric research capable of establishing causation, pork’s other red flags spring from epidemiology — a field rife with confounders and unjustified confidence.

Worse, many diet-and-disease studies lump pork together with other types of red meat, diluting whatever associations might exist with pork alone.

These issues make it hard to isolate the health effects of pig-derived products and determine the safety of their consumption.

That being said, caution is probably warranted. The sheer magnitude, consistency and mechanistic plausibility of pork’s connection with several serious diseases make the chances of a true risk more likely.

Until further research is available, you might want to think twice about going hog-wild on pork.

          Marshall Kent Leads Nine Players Set for Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Finals   

Three-time PBA Tour titlist Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., averaged 227 over four rounds on different lane conditions to lead a field of nine players who advanced to this weekend’s stepladder finals of the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

ESPN’s live coverage begins Saturday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) from the Grand Hotel Event Center when qualifiers five through nine will compete on two specially-installed lanes with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position who will join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast which also gets underway at noon local time.

Kent compiled a 7,278 32-game pinfall total bowled on PBA’s 32-foot Wolf, 40-foot Bear, 52-foot Badger and 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition patterns over the four days of qualifying at the FireLake Bowling Center. He bowled games of 237, 274, 266, 257, 236, 220, 235 and 207 in Friday’s final round on the Oklahoma condition.

IMG_2060Despite starting the tournament with games of 160 and 170 in the first round on the Wolf condition Tuesday, Kent relied on his ability to adjust to quickly rebound.

“I was a little frustrated but I reminded myself it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” he said. “In a tournament like this you have to look at the big picture. I was a little frustrated but I knew I had 30 games to go.

“I think overall my versatility showed in this tournament,” the 24-year-old Kent continued. “I didn’t have a good start but it didn’t worry me.”

As top qualifier, Kent earned the right to select the lane condition pattern for both stepladder telecasts this weekend and has selected the Bear pattern. He does have the option to change the pattern selection after Saturday’s telecast for Sunday’s competition.

“I feel that the Bear pattern is the best pattern for rewarding the player who makes the best shot,” Kent said. “My gut right now is to stick with it for both days.”

Climbing from 28th after the first round and 12th after Thursday’s third round, three-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia averaged 256 in the final round to rocket to the no. 2 qualifying position and finish with a 7,208 pinfall. The two-hander will be trying for this third win of the season after winning the USBC Masters and Barbasol PBA Players Championship.

Joining Kent and Belmonte in Sunday’s finals will be no. 3 qualifier three-time Tour winner Rhino Page of Orlando who finished with a 7,191 pinfall and no. 4 qualifier 18-time Tour champion Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who finished with 7,181.

IMG_2057“I knew the pattern today would be easier than what we had been bowling on,” said Belmonte, who owns 14 career PBA Tour titles. “You still have to execute because pin carry becomes something you have to deal with. I went into this round taking it shot by shot and wasn’t going to be afraid of what was going to happen down lane.”

Players who qualified fifth through ninth bowling in Saturday’s stepladder round to determine the no. 5 qualifier for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast will be two-time tour winner Thomas Larsen of Denmark, reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., Jesper Svensson of Sweden, Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., and Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., fell short of making the top nine by 94 pins finishing 11th with a 6,941 pinfall (216.9 average) to record his highest PBA Tour finish.

          Denmark’s Larsen Meeting Challenge of Multiple Lane Conditions To Retain Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Lead   

In a tournament that puts a premium on a player’s ability to adjust to vastly different lane conditions, third-round leader Thomas Larsen of Denmark feels he’s as prepared as he can be to meet the challenges of competing in the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

After three rounds bowled on three different PBA lane condition patterns, the two-time PBA Tour and four-time European Bowling Tour winner, leads a field of 33 players who advanced to Friday’s final round at the FireLake Bowling Center with a 5,398 24-game pinfall (224.9 average).

The players advancing to the fourth round will be put to the test on the 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition and will battle to be among the top nine who will advance to the live ESPN stepladder finals Saturday and Sunday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) at the Grand Casino Hotel Event Center in Shawnee.

Larsen bowled eight-game pinfall totals of 1,826 on the 32-foot Wolf pattern lane condition in the first round, 1,793 on the 40-foot Bear pattern in the second round and 1,779 on the 52-foot Badger pattern in Thursday’s third round with games of 223, 190, 246, 200, 244, 219, 219 and 238.

“It was another successful day today,” said the 27-year-old Larsen who led after the second round. “You never know what will happen when you’re bowling on a completely new lane condition but I was ready for the challenge.

“I used a lot of balls again today in the round,” he continued. “Just like in yesterday’s round I used several balls and had to make changes in my ball speed and hand position at the release – the changes were just different today.”

Larsen is trying for his first PBA Tour title on U.S. soil. His Tour titles came in the 2013 Abu Dhabi Open and 2014 Kuwait International Open.

Larsen holds a 45-pin lead over 18-time PBA Tour titlist Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, in second with a 5,353 pinfall. Three-time PBA Tour winner Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., is third with 5,346.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., advanced to the fourth round with a 10th-place 5,199 pinfall total. He bowled games of 234, 218, 235, 163, 213, 183, 236 and 206 in the third round.

“I’m a little surprised how well I’m doing because when I practiced on these conditions at home I didn’t do that well,” said the high school sophomore who uses the unique two-handed delivery. “Generally, I feel comfortable making the adjustments I need to make – I’m just trying to learn as much as I can.

“If I have a bad game or get a split, I just have to remember that there are more opportunities and more bowling to go.”

Ford has been a PBA member since age 13 and has three top-10 finishes in PBA regional competition with a best of sixth.

Saturday’s stepladder round will feature players who qualified fifth through ninth with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position to join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder final.

Friday’s final qualifying round will be streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame beginning at 9:30 EDT (8:30 CT). For subscription and schedule information click on www.xtraframe.tv.

          Europe forecast: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, Jun 30 - 05:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.

The rising Nordic musician has just signed to Ultra Records, and is clearly in the mood to celebrate.

'In And Out Of Love', however, is much more nuanced than context might suggest; a song of separation, it explores the depth of love, and how it can enrich huge areas of your life.

The video was shot in Denmark, and is split between two people, two perspectives, and one phone call.

          Israel, American Jewry and Trump's GOP   

Earlier this month Norway, Denmark and Switzerland did something surprising.

Norway announced that it was demanding the return of its money from the Palestinian Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Secretariat, for the latter's funding of a Palestinian women's group that built a youth center near Nablus named for PLO mass murderer Dalal Mughrabi.

Denmark followed, announcing it was cutting off all funding to the group.

And last week, the Swiss parliament passed a resolution directing the government to amend Swiss law to block funding of NGOs "involved in racist, antisemitic or hate incitement actions."

For years, the Israeli government has been urging these and other European governments to stop funding such groups, to no avail. What explains their abrupt change of heart?

In two words: Donald Trump.

For years, the Obama administration quietly encouraged the Europeans to fund these groups and to ratchet up their anti-Israel positions. Doing so, the former administration believed, would coerce Israel to make concessions to the PLO.

But now, Trump and his advisers are delivering the opposite message. And, as the actions by Denmark, Norway and Switzerland show, the new message is beginning to be received.

If the US administration keeps moving forward on this trajectory, it can do far more than suspend funding for one terrorism-supporting Palestinian NGO. It can shut down the entire BDS industry before Trump finishes his current term in office.

To understand what can and ought to be done, it is first important to understand the nature of the BDS movement. Under the catchphrase BDS, two separate campaigns against Israel and against Jews are being carried out.

The first BDS campaign is a campaign of economic warfare. The focal point of that campaign is Europe. The purpose of the campaign is to harm Israel's economy by enacting discriminatory, anti-Israel trade policies and encouraging unofficial consumer and business boycotts of Israeli firms and products.

The US Congress can end this economic war against Israel by passing laws penalizing European states for engaging in trade practices that breach the World Trade Organization treaties. The US Treasury Department can also push strongly and effectively for such an end in its trade negotiations with the EU. The Treasury Department can also investigate whether and how EU trade practices toward Israel constitute unlawful barriers to trade.

Unlike the situation in Europe, where the BDS economic war against Israel is fairly advanced, efforts in the US to mount economic boycotts of Israel hit an iceberg early on due to the swift preemptive actions taken by state legislatures.

In 2015, then-South Carolina governor Nikki Haley became the first governor to sign a law barring her state government from doing business or investing in companies that boycott Israel. Last week Kansas became the 21st US state to pass an anti-BDS law along the same lines. Last month, all 50 state governors declared opposition to BDS.

The second BDS campaign being carried out against Israel is a form of political and social warfare.

Its epicenter is US academia. Its purpose is to erode US support for Israel, by making it politically unacceptable and socially devastating to publicly voice support for Israel on college campuses and more generally in leftist circles.

As is the case with the economic BDS campaign, the best way to defeat political BDS is through state and federal government action. If state and federal governments withheld funding to universities and colleges that permit BDS groups to operate on their campuses, campus administrators, who to date have refused to lift a finger against these hate groups, would be forced into action.

If the US Education and Justice departments opened civil rights investigations against major BDS groups for antisemitic bigotry, campus administrators would finally begin banning them from their campuses.

For many Israelis, the notion that defeating BDS is a job for the US government rather than for grassroots, American Jewish activists, will come as a surprise.

When Israelis think about the BDS movement, they tend to think that the American Jewish community is the place to turn for assistance.

This is not merely incorrect.

As two studies published in the last few weeks show, the notion that Israel can look to the American Jewish community for help with anything is becoming increasingly dubious.

To be sure, there are several American Jewish groups that devote massive resources to combating BDS on campuses. But their actions are tactical.

They fight specific BDS resolutions coming to votes before student councils. They train pro-Israel students to defend Israel to their peers.

While helpful, none of these actions constitutes a serious challenge to the movement.

On a strategic level, the effective moves made to date against BDS have been initiated by Republicans.

Alan Clemmons, the South Carolina lawmaker who initiated the anti-BDS bill in his statehouse and has since gone on to spearhead the state government anti-BDS drive nationally, is a Christian Zionist.

Clemmons didn't act out of concern for South Carolinian Jews. The Jewish community of South Carolina numbers a mere 20,000 members. The state-by-state anti-economic BDS campaign is neither the brainchild of any major Jewish group nor the product of their efforts.

So, too, to the extent that the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress take action to defeat BDS on campuses and in Europe, they won't be answering the call of their Jewish constituents. American Jews vote overwhelmingly for the increasingly anti-Israel Democratic Party. And while making up a mere 2% of the US population, American Jews contributed 50% of the donations to the Democratic Party in the 2016 elections.

This then brings us to the two studies of the American Jewish community and its future trajectory.

The first study was published by the Jewish Agency's Jewish People Policy Institute. It analyzes the data from the 2013 Pew survey of American Jewish attitudes. The Pew survey demonstrated that the Jewish identity of American Jews is growing increasingly attenuated and superficial.

Famously, the study noted that while 19% of American Jews said that they view observance of Jewish law as an essential part of their Jewish identity, 42% said they viewed having a good sense of humor as an essential part of their Jewish identity.

The JPPI study analyzed the Pew data regarding rates of marriage and childbearing among American Jews aged 24-54. The study started with the data on intermarriage. Sixty percent of non-haredi American Jews are married to non-Jews. A mere 32% of married American Jews are raising their children as Jewish to some degree.

From there, the JPPI study considered marriage and childbirth rates in general. It works out that a mere 50% of American Jews between 24 and 54 are married. And a mere 40% of American Jews between those ages have children living with them. In other words, the majority of adult American Jews are childless.

The JPPI study tells us two important things.

First, in the coming years there will be far fewer American Jews. Second, among those who are Jewish, their Jewish identity will continue to weaken.

Clearly, it would be unwise for Israel to believe that it can depend on such a community to secure its interests in the US for the long haul.

The second study shows that not only can Israel not expect the American Jewish community to help it maintain its alliance with the US. The number of American Jews willing to spearhead anti-Israel campaigns is likely to grow in the coming years.

The second study was produced by Brand Israel, a group of public relations experts that for the past decade has been trying to change the way young Americans think about Israel. The idea was to discuss aspects of Israel that have nothing to do with the Palestinians, with an emphasis on Israel as a hi-tech power. The hope was that by branding Israel as the Start-Up Nation, leftists, who support the Palestinians, would still support Israel.

Fern Oppenheim, one of the leaders of Brand Israel, presented the conclusions of an analysis of the group's work at the Herzliya Conference this week and discussed them with the media. It works out that the PR campaign backfired.

Far from inspiring increased support for Israel, Oppenheim argued that the hi-tech-centric branding campaign made leftist American Jews even more anti-Israel. She related that over the past decade, there has been an 18-point drop in support for Israel among US Jewish students.

To remedy the situation, which she referred to as "devastating," Oppenheim recommended changing the conversation from hi-tech to "shared values."

The problem with Oppenheim's recommendation is that it ignores the problem.

Young American Jews aren't turning against Israel because their values are different from Israeli values. By and large, they have the same values as Israeli society. And if they know anything about Israel, they know that their values aren't in conflict with Israeli values.

Young American Jews are turning on Israel for two reasons. First, they don't care that they are Jewish and as a consequence, see no reason to stick their necks out on Israel's behalf.

And second, due in large part to the political BDS campaign on college campuses, supporting Israel requires them to endanger or relinquish their ideological home on the Left. Since their leftist identities are far stronger than their Jewish identities, young American Jews are joining the BDS mob in increasing numbers.

This then brings us back to BDS.

The only way to diminish the groundswell of American Jews who are becoming hostile toward Israel is to defeat the forces of political BDS on campuses. To do this, Israel should turn not to the Jewish community but to evangelical Christians, the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress.

As for the American Jews, Israel needs to stop viewing the community as a resource and begin to view it as a community in crisis. To this end, the most significant contribution Israel can make to the American Jewish community - particularly to non-Orthodox American Jews - is to encourage them to make aliya. Assuming that current trends will continue, the only way non-Orthodox American Jews can have faith their grandchildren will be Jewish is for a significant number of them to make aliya.

No, this won't appeal to all American Jews. But nothing Israel does will. Israel's job isn't to reach the unreachable. It is to protect its alliance with the US and to help the Jews that remain in the room.

          2017 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team   
Meet the best and brightest high school students in the state.

The class of 2017, our 23rd, is made up of athletes, coders, budding politicians and brain experts. There's rarely a B on the transcripts of these students — in not just this, their senior year, but in any year of their high school careers.

Back in 1995, we created the Academic All-Star Team to honor what we then called "the silent majority — the kids who go to school, do their homework (most of it, anyway), graduate and go on to be contributing members of society." Too often, we argued then, all Arkansans heard about young people was how poorly they were faring. Or, when students did get positive attention, it came for athletic achievement.

As you read profiles of this year's All-Stars, it should be abundantly clear that good things are happening in Arkansas schools and there are many academic achievers who deserve to be celebrated. You should get a good idea, as well, of how these stellar students are busy outside school, with extracurricular activities, volunteer work, mission activities and more.

They'll be honored this week at a ceremony at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with plaques and $250 cash awards.

Many college plans listed here are not set in stone, as students await information on scholarships and acceptances.

CAROLINE COPLIN-CHUDY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: Mount St. Mary Academy
Parents: (guardian) Dennis Chudy
College plans: Duke University

Caroline Coplin-Chudy has a 4.4 grade point average — high enough to rank second in her class at Mount St. Mary Academy — and lost her mother to leukemia during her sophomore year, something she told us came to be a source of inspiration and drive during her academic development. "It was a big adjustment. After my mom passed away, it was just my stepdad. It's a weird realization coming to the idea that both of your parents are gone, and it's just you. ... I still think of her every single day. She motivates me to do well in everything, because my whole life I wanted to make her proud." Caroline is president of Mount St. Mary's Investment Club and of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She's also been a regular volunteer for several years at the Little Rock Compassion Center, whose recovery branch provides meals and health resources to people suffering from addiction. Caroline said she found healing from her own grief in the friendships she forged there. As the recipient of a Questbridge scholarship, described by Caroline's guidance counselor and nominator Amy Perkins as a program where lower-income students qualify for tuition to schools with which they "match" via an early decision process, Caroline will attend Duke University on a full scholarship. "I'm going to study biology and psych, with a minor in Spanish. My plan is to work at the Duke Center for Addiction [Science and Technology] helping people with drug addictions overcome that sort of thing. It's something that I've had experience with, watching my family go through things like that."

AXEL NTAMATUNGIRO
Age: 17
Hometown: Pine Bluff
High School: Subiaco Academy
Parents: Sixte Ntamatungiro and Sylvana Niciteretse
College plans: Rice University, neuroscience

Axel Ntamatungiro grew up among books and maps dispersed throughout his home that "paint[ed] the walls with nuanced shades of knowledge." It shows. Not often can a high school senior explain, as Axel does, his love for studying the brain so easily. "Neuroscience is basically a neuron turning on and off," he said. "The fact that you have billions of these combinations that lead to consciousness, that's unbelievable." To continue learning about the mind, Axel is headed to Rice University on a full ride as a QuestBridge scholar. Maybe medical school or graduate school after that. Axel said his parents taught him a "humble intellectualism" that helped him understand "the irrationality of life." They always told him: "Work hard, but you need to realize you don't always get what you deserve." And life has been, at times, irrational and difficult for his family. Axel was the only member of his family born in the United States — in Little Rock in 1999. The rest migrated from Burundi in the early 1990s. They stayed here as the Rwandan genocide inflicted incredible damage in the area. That past was never hidden from Axel. "Instead of avoiding my questions, my parents level-headedly answered [them], telling me about Belgian colonialism, Hutu-Tutsi tension and the systematic poverty afflicting Burundi," he said. Maybe that is why Axel has never been afraid to ask big questions. He said it also helped to have a diverse group of friends who taught him new things. At his cafeteria table for lunch are kids from all over: Nigeria, Fort Smith, Japan, Bentonville and Russia. Everyone's small stories add to a global perspective, something bigger from something small, kind of like those neurons.

JADE DESPAIN
Age: 18
Hometown: Springdale
High School: Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville)
Parents: Brenan and Tiffany DeSpain
College plans: U.S. Naval Academy, nuclear engineering

For Jade DeSpain, the question, "Where's your hometown?" isn't necessarily as straightforward as it seems. The National Merit semifinalist, swimming star and Quiz Bowler spent much of her childhood in Beijing, where her parents — both fluent in Mandarin — taught her Chinese concurrently with English (and where, she notes, she acquired an "incredible prowess with chopsticks.") "We've moved around so much that I don't really have a 'hometown,' but Springdale is the closest I've ever gotten," she said. She's made her impact there, too, tutoring students free of charge through her volunteer work with the M&N Augustine Foundation and putting in time at the Arkansas Council for the Blind and the Springdale Animal Shelter. Jade is ranked second in her class, and her high school transcript is full of aced courses in trigonometry, physics and calculus. She's also the co-founder of Haas Hall Academy's coding club, so a career in nuclear energy development — Jade's field of choice — isn't just an aspiration; it's the plan. "I have a deep appreciation for nature," she told us, citing Devil's Den State Park as a spot to which she feels closely connected, and stressing the importance of preserving natural spaces and developing more long-term options for sustainable energy. On Christmas Day 2016, Jade checked her email to find that she'd attained something she'd wanted as early as age 12: acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy. There, she'll major in nuclear engineering and complete her five mandatory post-Academy years in the Navy, after which she hopes to acquire a Ph.D. in the field.

AVERY ELLIOTT
Age: 18
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and Melissa Elliott
College plans: University of Arkansas, medicine

Though many of our All-Stars seem destined from birth for academic greatness, there is the occasional inspiring All-Star who has had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. One of those is Cabot High School's Avery Elliott, who was born with nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movements that can make it hard for sufferers to concentrate and learn. Though it's hard to imagine it now, when she was in elementary school Avery found herself falling further and further behind her classmates in reading because of her condition. "That was difficult," she said. "I was behind schedule until about third or fourth grade. I would have to go home and really work with my parents to keep up with the rest of the class." Even though she struggled early on, Avery said that, in a way, the nystagmus contributed to her success and gave her a direction to follow. "I had to learn to really study even outside of school," she said. "I learned some very good study habits. But I think it also really affected where I wanted to go as far as my career. ... I really learned that a medical team can not only dispense medicine, but can really affect someone's life." A National Merit finalist who has volunteered extensively with Special Olympics and already completed 43 hours of college-level coursework, Avery has been awarded the University of Arkansas Fellowship. She plans to study medicine at UAMS after completing her undergrad degree, then practice in Arkansas. That goal has always pushed her to succeed academically. "I wanted to go into the medical field from an early age," she said, "so I knew starting out in high school that I needed to make very good grades in order to get where I needed to. I had to really learn the material, rather than just trying to ace a test."

JARED GILLIAM
Age: 17
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and LeAnne Gilliam
College plans: University of Arkansas, engineering

When most young people say they want to change the world, it's easy to believe that's just pie-in-the-sky thinking by someone who hasn't yet been through the Academy of Hard Knocks. When Jared Gilliam says he wants to change the world, however, there's a good chance he might actually pull it off. Jared even has a plan: He'll change the world through engineering. A National Merit finalist and AP scholar with a GPA of 4.18 and a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, Jared is well placed to do just that. A musician who plays percussion with the Cabot High Marching Band, Jared said his favorite subject in school is math. "I think I'm mostly interested in engineering because I've always been sort of a problem-solver," he said. "I've enjoyed math and science, working through things and finding solutions to everyday problems. This year, I've been in robotics, so we've spent time working on a robot to perform various tasks. I've enjoyed that a lot. I think engineering is where my ability would best be used." He'll attend the University of Arkansas, which has offered him the Honors College Fellowship. He said the drive to excel academically has always been a part of his life. "I've grown up being encouraged to do well, and I guess I have my parents to thank for that and all my teachers," he said. "I think knowing that I have the ability to do all of this, I feel compelled to do what I can to make a difference. I think life would be pretty boring if I didn't go out there and do all the things I do. I don't think I could settle for not being successful."

BENJAMIN KEATING
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High School
Parents: Drs. Bill and Janice Keating
College plans: Undecided

If you were looking for a ringing endorsement of Ben Keating's character, you'd need to look no further than Amy Slater, the guidance counselor who nominated him for our Academic All-Stars roster and who said of Ben, "He is all the things I hope my son turns out to be. ... He really thinks about things, and he practices the trumpet and piano for hours a day. It's crazy, his dedication." Ben probably had something to prove here; he admits to some skepticism on the part of his mother when he announced he'd be pursuing a career in music. He's certainly proved his mettle; Ben is band president at Southside, was a principal trumpet for the 2017 National Youth Honor Orchestra, first chair for Southside's Wind Symphony and for the All-State Jazz Band and was ranked in the top-tier bands for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra each year from 2014-16. The accolades go on and on: Ben has received a Young Artist Award from the International Trumpet Guild, a Gold Medal from the National Piano Guild and superior ratings from the National Federation of Music Clubs competitions for over a decade. He plays for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra and as a volunteer musician for the Fort Smith Community Band. Ben is still deciding where to attend college, but wherever he goes, he hopes to continue playing with an orchestra. Eventually, he wants to teach at the university level. "Ultimately," he wrote, "I want to use my passion to unite people of all different races, backgrounds and cultures. In today's society that is politically and culturally divided, it is more important than ever to share the universal language of music."

KATHERINE HAHN
Age: 17
Hometown: Hindsville
High School: Huntsville High School
Parents: Shannon Hahn
College plans: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, biochemical engineering

Katherine Hahn is ranked first in her class at Huntsville High School, which she attends because her hometown of Hindsville is too small to support its own school system. The population of Hindsville is "about 75 people," she told us. At Huntsville High, Katherine plays bass drum in the marching band and marimba/xylophone in the concert band and runs with the Huntsville cross-country team. Her real passion, though, is science. "I think I've always wanted to go to a college that was science-based and research-based," she told us. Her high school principal, Roxanne Enix, noted her own surprise when Katherine announced that she'd take 10 credits her senior year, instead of the recommended eight. "I thought she had lost her mind," Enix stated. Those credits, over half of which are in AP classes, are what Katherine hopes have prepared her for the rigorous workload at MIT. Aiming for a career in pharmaceutical development, Katherine plans to study biochemical engineering, something she said resonated personally with her as a result of her mother's struggle with skin cancer. "Biology helps me understand why medicine does the things it does," Katherine told us. "Whenever I first started out, I wanted to do environmental stuff," she said, but turned her attention to drug delivery systems after observing so many friends and loved ones battling cancer. "I want to help stop people from being scared of losing people," she explained. Katherine, a native of Tahlequah, Okla., who moved to Arkansas around fifth grade, has served on the Madison County Health Coalition as Youth Leader and was named Student of the Year in 2017 by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and Huntsville High School.

GEORGIANA BURNSIDE
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Bob and Ann Burnside
College plans: Stanford University, biology and public policy

When this reporter mentioned to friends at UAMS that she'd just spoken to an amazingly poised, optimistic and intelligent young woman with a spinal cord injury, they said in unison, "You mean Georgiana Burnside." Her reputation as a teenager who at 16 was paralyzed from the waist down in a snow skiing accident but who considers the event a "blessing" no doubt goes further than UAMS, all the way to Denver's Craig Hospital, where she spent "the most memorable two months in my life," she said, and where she returns to continue her rehabilitation. What is a spinal cord injury? She answers that it is a) a life changed in a split second, b) finding out that a bad attitude is the true disability, c) a time to show off wheelchair tricks, and d) spontaneous moments of unfortunate incontinence. In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Georgiana writes, "my physical brokenness has developed wholeness in my heart about the capacity life holds for individuals regardless of their disabilities." In a phone interview, Georgiana, once a figure skater, talked about her work with Easter Seals, fundraisers for Craig Hospital, and giving talks and testimony about her faith. Georgiana has regained the ability to walk with hiking sticks and leg braces, thanks to the strength in her quads. And, thanks to support from the High Fives Foundation in Truckee, Calif., which sponsors athletes with injuries and which has paid for some of her rehabilitation, Georgiana returned to the slopes over spring break, skiing upright with the aid of long forearm equipment. At Stanford, she'll study to be a doctor, with a goal to return to Craig Hospital as a physician who'll treat other injured youths who, though they may have, like Georgiana, at first believed their life was over, will learn they have "a unique role ... enabling the advancement of society."

MITCHELL HARVEY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: North Little Rock High School
Parents: David and Susan Harvey
College plans: Likely Mississippi State University, chemical engineering

Mitchell Harvey is a big fan of the periodic table. "The elements are amazing little things," he wrote in his Academic All-Star essay. "They make up everything, yet we hardly see them in their pure form in everyday life." Mitchell decided they needed more exposure, so he started collecting examples of the elements and taking them to school for his peers and teachers to see. He extracted helium from an abandoned tank on the side of the road. He found zinc in wheel weights, grew crystals of copper with electrolysis and made bromine, which he describes as "a blood-red liquid that fumes profusely," from a "crude" homemade distillation setup and pool chemicals. Though you can buy sodium readily, Mitchell made his by melting drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide) with a blowtorch and then passing a current through it, separating the mixture into sodium metal, oxygen and water. His parents were OK with the procedure, he says, because he wore a Tyvek suit, three pairs of gloves, safety goggles and a face shield. While on a college visit in California last summer, Mitchell toured Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and was impressed by the large periodic table display exhibit there. So he decided to build one for North Little Rock High. He got money from the school's alumni group, the Wildcat Foundation, to pay for the supplies necessary to construct the 9-foot-by-6-foot display. He hopes to have it completed in the next two weeks and fill it with examples of elements he has collected, though he may need additional funding to pay for other elements. No. 1 in a class of 687, Mitchell scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. He's also an Eagle Scout, and led a project to plant 800 native hardwood seedlings at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. After college, Mitchell said, he might start his own waste remediation business. "The business model I would be going for would be taking some byproduct that's hazardous and turning it into something useful."

CARSON MOLDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Mabelvale
High school: Bryant High SCHOOL
Parents: Kevin and Ruby Molder
College plans: University of Arkansas

Not everybody plays the mellophone and likes to draw up better interstate exchanges, but Carson Molder does both. The University of Arkansas Honors College-bound student, No. 1 in his class, likes to create three-dimensional schemes in his head, and has been creating road designs since he was young. But as a musician who plays the French horn in his school's orchestra and the mellophone in the Legacy of Bryant marching band, and who has won a band scholarship in addition to his Honors College reward to the UA, he said that one day he may be an audio engineer. "I'm going to put things together and see what sticks," he said of his future. Meanwhile, Carson said the internet has been his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, taking him to new places that he otherwise could not get to. "I can count on my hands the number of times I have set foot outside Arkansas," Carson wrote in an essay for the Arkansas Times. But with the internet, "I can gaze into the redwood forests of California and the skyscrapers of New York City without leaving my desk." Without the internet, he said in a phone interview, "I would not be at the top of my class." Carson added, "It's not going to replace going out and visiting these things, but if you're a kid and don't have the money to go out, you can visit Yellowstone." Carson, who describes himself as "really ambitious," is looking forward to studying with Dr. Alan Mantooth, the director of the UA National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission. The UA, he said, "will provide me the tools" he'll need to succeed in graduate school, which he hopes will be Stanford University.

OLIVIA LANGER
Age: 18
Hometown: Jonesboro
High school: Brookland High School
Parents: Kelly Webb and Jonathan Langer
College plans: University of California, Santa Barbara, chemistry

You might think that a student who is No. 1 in her class and a National Merit finalist with nary a B on her high school transcript might not consider one of her greatest achievements her selection as her high school's drum major three years in a row. But here's the thing: Schoolwork comes easy to Olivia Langer. "I never had to work hard," she told us. In fact, her style of learning is "conversation-based," she said; she enjoys "debate without argument." But music was different: "I struggled at points, and had to put in extra work to be good." Her selection as drum major was "something I know I've worked for," she said, and she has enjoyed the responsibilities that come with it. "I like to take care of people. The band calls me band mom," she added. Beside numerous academic awards, Olivia also earned a 2017 state Horatio Alger scholarship for students who have overcome great obstacles. Hers, Olivia said, was financial: She's always had a place to stay and food to eat, but she hasn't been able to afford academic programs. "Honestly, I wasn't able to visit any of the colleges I applied to," she said. So she will see the UC Santa Barbara campus for the first time when she arrives this fall. She's considering a double major in chemistry and anthropology; she's interested in the evolutionary side of anthropology, and plans to seek graduate and post-graduate degrees.

REBECCA PARHAM
Age: 18
Hometown: Alma
High School: Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts
Parents: Eileen and Rick Parham
College plans: University of Arkansas or Hendrix College

On a visit to Hanamaki, Japan, with her school, Rebecca Parham noticed that once a month all the citizens would clean the front of their homes and shops. Folks would give each other gifts, too. "It was clear people tended to think for the whole," she said. "I thought that was really nice." An avid chemist, Rebecca did not just improve her Japanese on the trip, she brought those lessons of helping the community back to Arkansas. Her work has been at the intersection of heady science and community impact. In her robotics club, she noticed that girls were less likely to participate. "I decided that was not OK," she said. So, she designed a day with LEGO kits to encourage women to pursue STEM education. That desire to make an impact goes beyond school, too. For her senior project, Rebecca designed a test for homebuyers to see if meth had been cooked on their property (yes, meth). Her parents, on hearing of this project choice, asked her to "please explain a little bit further ... ." Here's the gist: The method of meth production in rural areas has shifted to something called the Birch reduction; older testing kits would no longer work. But Rebecca thought she could produce one that could. She designed a flame test. It finds lithium compounds left behind. The process of invention was "definitely frustrating," Rebecca said, but you "learn things you never thought of before." Rebecca did not plan to spend senior year in her dorm late at night "searching online" how to identify meth production, but she has a driving curiosity toward science and how it "connects to the world." She hopes to work in renewable energy — to be part of the global community, from Japan to Arkansas — making the world a nice place in which to live.

GRANT ROBINSON
Age: 18
Hometown: Searcy
High school: Searcy High School
Parents: Eric and Lisa Robinson College plans: University of Arkansas

Grant Robinson's father is a cardiologist, and Grant long figured he would follow in his dad's footsteps. But now he's not so sure. Last summer, he was selected, among thousands of applicants from around the world, to participate in a Stanford University summer engineering program. He got to experience a taste of college life, to take advantage of Stanford's decked-out labs and to tour the area to see results of civil engineering. The most memorable part of the program? Grant's small group built a Rube Goldberg machine — a complicated gadget that performs a simple task in a convoluted way — that, by Grant's estimation, was "the most complex and aesthetically pleasing" in the program. It included an electromagnet the group handmade and chemical reactions triggered by the machine. Grant's academic achievements are the byproduct of a natural curiosity. He said he spends what little free time he has exploring YouTube, trying to figure out the way the world works. Another influence: His father, who pulled himself out of poverty to become a doctor, has always instilled in him the importance of hard work. The message clearly stuck. Grant is second in his class of 263, with a 4.27 GPA. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He's a Presidential Scholar. His classmates voted him most likely to receive the Nobel Prize. He also participated in Project Unify (now known as Unified Champion Schools), an effort by the Special Olympics to get young people with and without special needs to come together for activities. Grant helped plan a basketball tournament as part of the project. In the fall, he'll be rooting on the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas.  

JOHN SNYDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Jill and Steve Snyder
College plans: Cornell University, industrial and labor relations

Whatever you were doing by your senior year in high school, chances are you probably hadn't already authored a book, much less a book on the complicated intersection of taxation and politics. John Snyder has, though. His book, "The Politics of Fiscal Policy," explores the political aspects of economics, including the pros and cons of various governmental tax schemes and their effect on government spending. It's for sale on Amazon right now. "It's pretty concise," John said, "but I wanted a way to express all my ideas in economic terms. That was a great way to do that." A history buff who serves as vice president of his class, John has a stunning 4.49 GPA and is ranked first in his class of 129. Though he wanted to be a lawyer when he was younger, his plan now is to go into investment banking. "Ultimately I want to have my own hedge fund — this thing called an activist hedge fund — and eventually I want to be actively involved in politics, whether that's in the midst of my business career or after ... . I'd love to run for public office one day." At Cornell University, John will be studying industrial and labor relations, a field that marries his love of multiple subjects. "Basically it ties in business, law, economics and history all into sort of one degree," he said. "You can do limitless things [with the degree]. Some people go into law school, some go into banking, some go to politics. That's why I chose that degree." John said his philosophy is that we have only a limited amount of time on earth, and so we should try to make the most of our lives. "I think there are a lot of things I can do to change the way things currently are in society, whether it's related to business or in academia or public policy," he said. "If I don't play a role in that and I'm not striving to do my best, I would feel like I'm wasting my potential."

PRESTON STONE
Age: 18

Benton High School's Big Man on Campus — No. 1 in his class, captain of the football team, an AP Scholar, straight As — can add to his resume the fact that he helped build his home. Preston, his two brothers and his mother bounced around a bit after her divorce, from Texas to Arkansas, living with grandparents and friends, Preston said. Then the family was selected by Habitat for Humanity, and he and his brothers pitched in to build their house. "It was the first place I could truly call home and it allowed me the stability I needed to grow into the kind of student I am today," he wrote in his essay for the Arkansas Times. Preston, who also helped build a school outreach group called SERVE to help new or struggling students, also credits sports for giving him purpose. He recently volunteered to trade in the pigskin for a basketball, joining a team that played boys at the Alexander Juvenile Detention Center. "It was an awesome experience," Preston said in a phone interview. "We were a little bit nervous at first" at the detention center, he said, but the team enjoyed the game — even though they lost to the Alexander team, formed to reward inmates with good behavior. "They practice every day," Preston said. Preston has received a $70,000 Honors College scholarship at Fayetteville. He won't be playing football with the Razorbacks. Instead he is thinking of following a pre-med track that will lead him to sports medicine. He plans to go Greek, as well.

KARINA BAO
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Central High School
Parents: Amy Yu and Shawn Bao
College plans: undecided

Karina Bao embraces complexity. The Central High School valedictorian (in a class of 636) is a member of the school's back-to-back state champion Ethics Bowl Team, for which she said she spent hours "researching, discussing and sometimes even arguing" case studies. Unlike debate, she said Ethics Bowl is "really about the back-and-forth and considering different caveats and nuances and considerations" in issues ranging from local food to gender identity. As president of the school's Brain Club, she leads discussions on brain diseases, disorders and anatomy. It's a role for which she's more than qualified: She placed first in the U.S. Brain Bee, a youth neuroscience competition in which contestants answer questions about anatomy and make diagnoses based on patient actors. Placing No. 1 in the U.S. competition landed Karina a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, to the International Brain Bee, which happened to coincide with a Federation of International Neuroscientists conference, where Karina got to talk to scientists from all over the world about their groundbreaking research. She placed fifth in the international competition. A perennial outstanding delegate winner at Model United Nations competitions, Karina said Model U.N. has helped her to "not be scared of the complexity and interconnectedness of pressing issues we face today." In her spare time, Karina volunteers on the oncology wing of Baptist Hospital. "You don't get to do much," she said. "But at least we get to talk to people and help them with whatever they need and be there to listen." In her Academic All-Stars essay, Karina echoed the same drive for understanding: "The stories other people share with me become not my own when I retell them, but a part of humanity's collective spirit to understand each other. We grow from hours of listening and crying, to empathize, to have the strength and openness to pop each successive layer of the protective bubble that keeps us from seeing the very world in which we reside."

BRYCE COHEA
Age: 19
Hometown: Greenwood
High school: Greenwood High School
Parents: Mike and Robin Cohea
College plans: University of Tulsa or Vanderbilt university, biology

Though he grew up landlocked, far from the deep blue sea, Greenwood High School standout Bryce Cohea knew from an early age that he wanted to be a marine biologist. To reach that goal, Bryce had to start early. "In the ninth grade," he wrote in his Academic All-Stars essay, "I began planning out all my classes for the next four years. I wanted to graduate top of my class, and in order to do that I would need to take every advanced placement class and get an A in every class." That's exactly what he did, too, making nothing less than a perfect grade in every class for his entire high school career. With a 4.25 GPA and a rank of No. 1 in his class of 275, Bryce has volunteered extensively with the Salvation Army and collected shoes for the homeless; he helps unload trucks and stock shelves at the food bank at his church. A National Merit semifinalist, he also has the distinction of having scored the first perfect ACT score of 36 in Greenwood High School history. "I've honestly been a good test-taker," he said. "The first time I took it, I got a 34. After that, I got the test back and I worked on whatever I missed. After a few more tries, I got a 36." Bryce was still deciding on which university to attend when we spoke to him, but he definitely plans to study science. The subject has always interested him, he said. "I'm planning on majoring in biology and then specializing after that," he said.

IMANI GOSSERAND
Age: 16
Hometown: Rogers
HIGH SCHOOL: ROGERS HIGH SCHOOL
Parents: James and Hyesun Gosserand

College plans: University of Southern California, Harvey Mudd College or Columbia University, computer science or environmental science

Imani Gosserand has a journal in which she organizes the many moving parts of her life — competitive gymnastics, AP classes, computer science, Young Democrats, volunteering — into lists. Personal stuff is in there, too: bucket lists, remembrances. The journal combines the creative and the organized; it is problem-solving with an artful flare, which is how Imani operates. "I really like being able to create something of my own," she said of computer science. At a camp at Stanford University, in California, her team won the competition to program a car. Imani, not surprisingly, is good at math: She learned multiplication at age 4 and went on to skip two grades. Imani thinks schoolwork is fun. "We had a huge packet of homework problems we had to do over one of our breaks," she said. "And no one else was excited about it except for me. I was like 'Oh, I'm so excited to do all these problems!' " She brings that enthusiasm for problem-solving to bigger issues, as well. "I feel like there are so many opportunities for me because our world relies on technology, so I think I could go into any field," she said. She's excited to explore and see where she can help. "I want to meet people from around the world and hear different perspectives."

C.J. FOWLER
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High School: Central High School
Parents: Bobbi and Dustin McDaniel and Chris and Kim Fowler
College plans: Yale University

C.J. Fowler has long been around Democratic politics. His stepfather is former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. But C.J. said he decided to become more politically involved himself after he came out as gay. "The situation that I'm in is not great," he said. "People are not always accepting. But it's on me if I want to try to change that and make it better for the people who come after me. I have to make sure that my community and all marginalized communities have a seat at the table, because far too often a bunch of old gray white guys are making policies that hurt everyone else." The student body president of Central High, C.J. said he's tried to move the student council, a glorified dance committee, toward advocacy and activism for students throughout the district, whose future is being decided by those "people sitting in dark rooms." He said students too often get left out of the conversation about the district "because we're too young to have opinions. But we're not; we're living it every day." C.J. has been a fixture at Little Rock School District public comment periods. Though he can't point to any policy victories, he said at least LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore knows who he is and that he disagrees with him. C.J., who is also the executive director of Young Democrats of Arkansas, sees the backlash against President Trump as encouraging. "We're realizing that, if we're going to go all in for progressive values, we need to go all in." Rather than join the chorus of progressives in the Northeast after he finishes at Yale, C.J. says he wants to come back to Arkansas and possibly continue in politics. He admires state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) and says he hopes if he ever holds office that he can follow her example.

SOPHIE PRICE
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High
Parents: Claire Price and Scott Price
College plans: Vanderbilt University, political science

"Growing up, I would always argue with everybody," Sophie Price said. Sometimes it was just to play devil's advocate, but mostly, it was because Sophie wants to find the capital-t Truth. Some of this digging for truth is class: seven AP course just this year and 12 during her time in high school. But, some of it is also talking with people, discussing issues. "The best way to improve your argument is to hear the counters, to hear the other side," Sophie said, and often she is willing to be convinced. She wants to do the right thing; she believes in justice. Which is why after college at Vanderbilt on a full scholarship, she wants to field arguments as a judge. "My whole life I've followed this ideal that you have to do what's right," Sophie said. "I want to be a judge so I can kind of decide that." Vanderbilt was the only school to which Sophie applied. She knew it was the right one for her. She arrived in Nashville on a rainy day in January, but through the gloom, she knew. "Something about the beautiful campus and the intelligent people and these varying perspectives just sold me immediately," she said. In a few months she was back at Vanderbilt for a camp where she studied law, and it cemented the deal. "There was something so exhilarating about being able to have this case and have the facts and kind of create your own narrative and really advocate for someone that drew me in," she said. Watch out, because "everything I do, I want to give it a 120 percent," Sophie said.

MEAGAN OLSEN
Age: 17
Hometown: Fayetteville
High School: Fayetteville High School
Parents: Anjanette Olsen
College plans: University of Arkansas Honors College, chemical engineering

Fayetteville High School’s top student, with a perfect ACT score of 36, a 4.2 gradepoint average and the co-author of a paper on fractal self-assembly, is not just a bookworm. She’s a leader, her counselor Cindy Alley says, who shows “grit, motivation to succeed and a desire to help others.” She is also, Alley says, “a pure joy to be around.” In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Meagan talked about how she came to understand “ternary counters,” a base-3 method of counting in which only the digits 0, 1 and 2 are used. (Binary counters of 0 and 1 make up our computer’s “thinking,” as people with 10 fingers, we use base 10 to count.) Meagan, trying to make a “self-assembling ternary counter,” said she banged her head against “endless walls” for weeks. Then just after 1 a.m., she woke up with the answer. It’s a wise child who gives credit where credit is due: “I understood,” she wrote, “my mother’s advice about taking a break whenever I was upset.” Meagan’s paper on fractal self-assembly was published in the 22nd International Conference on DNBA Computing and Molecular Programing. She no longer lets frustration prevent her from solving a problem; sometimes, she’ll just sleep on it. Meagan told the Times she plans to attend a small conference this summer and then take some needed down time. She plans to use her degree from Fayetteville to pursue biomedical research.

          Yarn bombed wooden sticks [D.I.Y.]   

At this time of year (Spring in Denmark) it's not easy growing Spring flowers in pots outside. The visiting pheasants from the wild enjoy eating the fresh leaves and pulling the plants out of the pots.

What they don't like (I hope) is my "Flower substitute": yarnbombed wooden sticks. The patterns are supposed to look like a section of a flower seen from above ... (have a look at the bottom of this post).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

D.I.Y.


All you need is:
• Wooden sticks
I've used sticks from a willow fence from my parents garden
• Yarn
I've used NO.1 acrylic
• Scissors



This is how you start:




When you change color:
Repeat the start (A+B+C).
If you're going to use the former color later
on the stick, keep it underneath the new color (D)...


Have fun!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is what my new "flowers" look like.
Photos of the natural flowers added to give you a hint ...


From the left to the right:
Forget-me-not, Pansy, Poppy, Daffodil, Daisy,
Pansy, Rose mallow.

What do you think?


And this is how I use the sticks ...

Like it?

          Nurses’ Use of iPads in Home Care—What Does It Mean to Patients?: A Qualitative Study   
imageAlthough the use of technology is growing, little is known about how patients perceive technology in the form of tools used by health professionals. The prevailing view in the literature is that technology is cold, compared with the warm hands of nurses, but research regarding nurses’ use of technology such as tablets is scarce. Even scarcer is research on how patients perceive the use of technological tools. This study examines patients’ perspectives on the use of iPads by home care nurses. Semistructured interviews were conducted with seven participants who were receiving home care in Denmark, aged 62 to 90 years, with different backgrounds and experiences with technology. Participants viewed nurses’ use of iPads as an everyday occurrence, reflecting societal growth in the use of technology, and some perceived it as a sign of professionalism with the potential to enhance care. Their perceptions varied somewhat according to their baseline knowledge and experience with the technology. Although nurses may view technology as cold, the findings suggest that patients have a slightly warmer view of it. More patient-centered research into the use of technology in healthcare is needed.

          Co-circulation of multiple subtypes of enterovirus A71 (EV- A71) genotype C, including novel recombinants characterised by use of whole genome sequencing (WGS), Denmark 2016   

In Europe, enterovirus A71 (EV-A71) has primarily been associated with sporadic cases of neurological disease. The recent emergence of new genotypes and larger outbreaks with severely ill patients demonstrates a potential for the spread of new, highly pathogenic EV-A71 strains. Detection and characterisation of these new emerging EV variants is challenging as standard EV assays may not be adequate, necessitating the use of whole genome analysis.

          10 Jenis Produk Dihasilkan oleh Tahanan Penjara   
MALAYSIAN ACCESS

Cover image via Says
Satu inisiatif kini sedang dijalankan oleh Jabatan Penjara Malaysia dalam melengkapkan kemahiran vokasional kepada banduan-banduan atau tahanan penjara.

Mungkin tidak ramai yang tahu, tetapi banduan-banduan ini diberi bimbingan dan latihan yang betul di bawah seksyen vokasional dan perindustrian supaya mereka berpeluang untuk memulakan sesuatu yang baik apabila mereka meninggalkan pusat pemulihan nanti.

Mereka diajar untuk menghasilkan pelbagai jenis produk yang tidak hanya digunakan tetapi juga dipasarkan di luar penjara, untuk dijual kepada orang ramai.

Hasil jualan dilaporkan mencecah sebanyak RM34 juta setahun dan apa yang lebih menarik lagi penghuni penjara juga mendapat bahagian masing-masing daripada hasil jualan ini yang diberikan oleh Jabatan Penjara.

Ini dia sebahagian produk yang dihasilkan tahanan penjara di seluruh Malaysia:

 

1. Makanan sejuk beku

 

makanan sejuk

Produk makanan adalah salah satu sektor yang paling menguntungkan di Jabatan Penjara. Pada tahun 2015, jumlah jualan produk makanan, termasuk makanan beku, dicatatkan pada RM26.6 juta.

Antara produk makanan beku yang paling popular termasuk karipap, donat, murtabak ayam, dan cucur badak.

Barang-barang ini mudah didapati di supermarket Mydin terpilih.

2. Sos pencicah

 

cili sos

Sos pencicah, adalah produk paling popular dari Penjara Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan.

Ia menjadi salah satu produk terlaris dari penjara ini sejak tujuh hingga lapan tahun lalu.

Jualan sos cili sangat menggalakkan dalam tahun-tahun kebelakangan ini. Sehinggakan pada tahun 2013 sahaja, pihak penjara telah memperoleh keuntungan sebanyak RM50,000.

3. Kuih raya

 

kuih raya

Sejak beberapa tahun lepas, penghuni-penghuni penjara Malaysia telah menghasilkan kuih-kuih yang lazat untuk musim perayaan Hari Raya. Tidak kurang beza juga untuk tahun ini, mereka menghasilkan lebih daripada 15 jenis kuih raya tempatan dan menjualnya kepada orang ramai pada harga yang berpatutan antara RM18 dan RM22 sebalang.

Tahun lepas, Penjara Pokok Sena dan Alor Setar masing-masing berjaya memperoleh RM250,000 dan RM150,000 melalui penjualan kuih raya. Sasaran baru telah ditetapkan untuk memperoleh RM500,000 tahun ini hasil gabungan keuntungan kedua-dua penjara itu.

4. Produk tenun

Bengkel tenunan dijalankan untuk melatih banduan kaedah tenunan tradisional dari proses mewarnakan benang sehingga menenun.

Tahun lepas, Puteri Mahkota Denmark, Mary Elizabeth Donaldson, dilaporkan membeli 250 Tenun Pahang Diraja (sejenis kain tenunan sutera) yang dihasilkan oleh tahanan di Penjara Penor dan Bentong.

Kedua-dua penjara itu berjaya merekodkan hasil jualan lebih daripada RM400,000 pada tahun lepas melalui jualan produk Tenun Pahang Diraja sahaja.

5. Songket

Penjara-penjara di Malaysia sangat dikenali sebagai pusat seni kain dan pusat pembuatan produk tenunan.

Walaubagaimanapun, songket sering menerima permintaan yang tinggi bahkan disukai oleh Kerabat Diraja di negara ini.

Penjara Marang di Terengganu telah diiktiraf kerana menghasilkan antara songket terbaik dan berkualiti tinggi di negara ini.

6. Set BBQ

Salah satu produk menarik yang dihasilkan penghuni penjara adalah barbeku set.

Orang ramai juga menunjukkan sokongan mereka terhadap produk penghuni penjara ini dengan cara membeli set ini untuk rumah mereka sendiri.

7. Perabot

 

perabot

Penghuni di beberapa penjara di Malaysia menjalani latihan untuk melakukan kerja tangan, membuat pelbagai jenis perabot seperti meja kopi, almari pakaian dan juga bedframe.

Mereka dilengkapi dengan kemahiran yang pelbagai untuk membuat perabot, terutamanya daripada bahan kayu dan rotan.

8. Ukiran kayu

 

ukiran kayu

Sesetengah banduan di penjara Malaysia juga dilatih untuk mempunyai pengetahuan dan kemahiran dalam ukiran kayu. Ini membolehkan mereka mengekspresikan kreativiti mereka sendiri dalam menghasilkan produk yang terdiri daripada barangan hiasan seperti pemegang kunci dan cermin.

Dikatakan bahawa beberapa karya ukiran kayu terlaris adalah rehal yang mempunyai butiran dan reka bentuk rumit yang sangat eksklusif dan sempurna untuk diberikan sebagai hadiah perkahwinan.

9. Pakaian

 

pakaian

Penghuni penjara termasuk lelaki dan perempuan juga diajar menjahit dan bagaimana untuk menggunakan mesin jahit. Sekurang-kurangnya mereka dapat menceburkan diri dalam industri jahitan apabila mereka keluar daripada penjara nanti.

Sesetengah daripada mereka diajar menghasilkan produk batik.

Empat pusat utama yang menghasilkan batik di negara ini ialah Penjara Wanita Kajang di Selangor, Penjara Pengkalan Chepa di Kelantan, Penjara Marang di Terengganu, dan Penjara Pokok Sena di Kedah.

10. Kraftangan

          Swift Creek Mill Theatre Announces Featured Artist Sharon Denmark   

Swift Creek Mill Theatre is pleased to present Sharon Denmark as our Featured Artist during the production of The Musical of Musicals: The Musical running July 13th through August 13th 2017. All are welcome to enjoy Sharon's work in The Mill Room during dinner/lunch or during intermission of each performance.

Sharon Denmark is a self-taught artist whose work is defined by bold colors, bright highlights, and deep shadows, with an emphasis on the natural world. The majority of her work is realistic, from landscapes to what she calls "close-ups" of items from nature such as flowers, shells, or even tree bark. She works from her own photographs, but takes liberties with the images, eschewing the precision of photorealism for a more spontaneous style. The works in this show are all acrylic on canvas. She is a lifelong resident of Southside Virginia and lives with her husband and their chihuahua Beowulf. Find out more at www.460arts.com

Swift Creek Mill Theatre has been a Richmond and Tri-Cities institution for 50 years. We've come a long way since three local families took a 353-year-old gristmill and turned it into an intimate space for the production of so many splendid theatrical experiences. Five decades and more than 340 productions later, the Mill is still going strong in its historic location.

The theatre operates year round and accommodates 220 people. We currently produce six mainstage shows and five youth theatre productions each year, including world-premiere musicals and one-of-a-kind children's shows developed and written in-house. The playhouse also hosts a youth summer theatre camp.

          Reading list: unregistered marks in the EU   
Verena von Bomhard & Artur Geier, Unregistered Trademarks in EU Trademark Law, Trademark Reporter, May-June, 2017 Vol. 107 No. 3
Abstract: The European Union (“EU”) trademark system is based on registration. Nevertheless, the laws of the EU Member States also protect unregistered rights, and these can be held against the use and registration of later EU trademarks. The article provides an introduction to unregistered trademarks in the EU and their enforcement in proceedings before the EU Intellectual Property Office. 
Excerpt: "[T]he law relating to unregistered trademarks is vastly different from one Member State to another. Some Member States do not recognize unregistered marks at all (beyond Article 6bis Paris Convention); others require varying degrees of market recognition or goodwill to protect trademarks based on use, while Denmark alone within the EU provides protection based on simple use."

          Wrong location being reported?????   

All,
I have been using the JT and WSPR modes for several years now with no issues. Recently my location has been reported as being in Denmark. I have checked my grid settings in the software (DN70) and it is correct. I am located in Fort Collins, Colorado, why is my location being reported as being in Denmark?! How can I correct this issue? I have gotten several e-mails asking if I am really located in Denmark. Any help would be appreciated.

Professor Tom Gilbert is an evolutionary biologist and ancient DNA expert at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. He is visiting New Zealand as a guest of Allan Wilson at Otago, with the support of the Genetics Society of Australasia and Genetics Otago. Gilbert has focused his most recent work on a broad range of evolutionary questions involving humans and domesticated plants and animals. He has also studied the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine in the 1850s, and which is related to kauri dieback disease. Gilbert will give a free talk at the University of Otago in Dunedin this week, where he'll discuss modern genomic analysis and how, from comparisons of just a few key DNA sequences, DNA technology itself has evolved to now allow evolutionary biologists to compare the entire genomes (all of an organism's DNA) of species, including humans, dogs and maize. http://www.otago.ac.nz/allan-wilson-research/index.html https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/me-my-dog-and-maize-dunedin-tickets-34844393519

          TEORI IKATAN KIMIA   

Ikatan kimia adalah sebuah proses fisika yang bertanggung jawab dalam interaksi gaya tarik menarik antara dua atom atau molekul yang menyebabkan suatu senyawa diatomik atau poliatomik menjadi stabil. Penjelasan mengenai gaya tarik menarik ini sangatlah rumit dan dijelaskan oleh elektrodinamika kuantum. Dalam prakteknya, para kimiawan biasanya bergantung pada teori kuantum atau penjelasan kualitatif yang kurang kaku (namun lebih mudah untuk dijelaskan) dalam menjelaskan ikatan kimia. Secara umum, ikatan kimia yang kuat diasosiasikan dengan transfer elektron antara dua atom yang berpartisipasi. Ikatan kimia menjaga molekul-molekul, kristal, dan gas-gas diatomik untuk tetap bersama. Selain itu ikatan kimia juga menentukan struktur suatu zat.
Kekuatan ikatan-ikatan kimia sangatlah bervariasi. Pada umumnya, ikatan kovalen dan ikatan ion dianggap sebagai ikatan "kuat", sedangkan ikatan hidrogen dan ikatan van der Waals dianggap sebagai ikatan "lemah". Hal yang perlu diperhatikan adalah bahwa ikatan "lemah" yang paling kuat dapat lebih kuat daripada ikatan "kuat" yang paling lemah.
Contoh model titik Lewis yang menggambarkan ikatan kimia anatara karbon C, hidrogen H, dan oksigen O. Penggambaran titik lewis adalah salah satu dari usaha awal kimiawan dalam menjelaskan ikatan kimia dan masih digunakan secara luas sampai sekarang.

Tinjauan

Elektron yang mengelilingi inti atom bermuatan negatif dan proton yang terdapat dalam inti atom bermuatan positif, mengingat muatan yang berlawanan akan saling tarik menarik, maka dua atom yang berdekatan satu sama lainnya akan membentuk ikatan.
Dalam gambaran yang paling sederhana dari ikatan non-polar atau ikatan kovalen, satu atau lebih elektron, biasanya berpasangan, ditarik menuju sebuah wilayah di antara dua inti atom. Gaya ini dapat mengatasi gaya tolak menolak antara dua inti atom yang positif, sehingga atraksi ini menjaga kedua atom untuk tetap bersama, walaupun keduanya masih akan tetap bergetar dalam keadaan kesetimbangan. Ringkasnya, ikatan kovalen melibatkan elektron-elektron yang dikongsi dan dua atau lebih inti atom yang bermuatan positif secara bersamaan menarik elektron-elektron bermuatan negatif yang dikongsi.
Dalam gambaran ikatan ion yang disederhanakan, inti atom yang bermuatan positif secara dominan melebihi muatan positif inti atom lainnya, sehingga secara efektif menyebabkan satu atom mentransfer elektronnya ke atom yang lain. Hal ini menyebabkan satu atom bermuatan positif dan yang lainnya bermuatan negatif secara keseluruhan. Ikatan ini dihasilkan dari atraksi elektrostatik di antara atom-atom dan atom-atom tersebut menjadi ion-ion yang bermuatan.
Semua bentuk ikatan dapat dijelaskan dengan teori kuantum, namun dalam prakteknya, kaidah-kaidah yang disederhanakan mengijinkan para kimiawan untuk memprediksikan kekuatan, arah, dan polaritas sebuah ikatan. Kaidah oktet (Bahasa Inggris: octet rule) dan teori VSEPR adalah dua contoh kaidah yang disederhanakan tersebut. Ada pula teori-teori yang lebih canggih, yaitu teori ikatan valens yang meliputi hibridisasi orbital dan resonans, dan metode orbital molekul kombinasi linear orbital atom (Bahasa Inggris: Linear combination of atomic orbitals molecular orbital method) yang meliputi teori medan ligan. Elektrostatika digunakan untuk menjelaskan polaritas ikatan dan efek-efeknya terhadap zat-zat kimia.

Sejarah

Spekulasi awal dari sifat-sifat ikatan kimia yang berawal dari abad ke-12 mengganggap spesi kimia tertentu disatukan oleh sejenis afinitas kimia. Pada tahun 1704, Isaac Newton menggarisbesarkan teori ikatan atomnya pada "Query 31" buku Opticksnya dengan mengatakan atom-atom disatukan satu sama lain oleh "gaya" tertentu.
Pada tahun 1819, setelah penemuan tumpukan volta, Jöns Jakob Berzelius mengembangkan sebuah teori kombinasi kimia yang menekankan sifat-sifat elektrogenativitas dan elektropositif dari atom-atom yang bergabung. Pada pertengahan abad ke-19 Edward Frankland, F.A. Kekule, A.S. Couper, A.M. Butlerov, dan Hermann Kolbe, beranjak pada teori radikal, mengembangkan teori valensi yang pada awalnya disebut "kekuatan penggabung". Teori ini mengatakan sebuah senyawa tergabung berdasarkan atraksi kutub positif dan kutub negatif. Pada tahun 1916, kimiawan Gilbert N. Lewis mengembangkan konsep ikatan elektron berpasangan. Konsep ini mengatakan dua atom dapat berkongsi satu sampai enam elektron, membentuk ikatan elektron tunggal, ikatan tunggal, ikatan rangkap dua, atau ikatan rangkap tiga.
Lewis-bond.jpg
Dalam kata-kata Lewis sendiri:
An electron may form a part of the shell of two different atoms and cannot be said to belong to either one exclusively.
Pada tahun yang sama, Walther Kossel juga mengajukan sebuah teori yang mirip dengan teori Lewis, namun model teorinya mengasumsikan transfer elektron yang penuh antara atom-atom. Teori ini merupakan model ikatan polar. Baik Lewis dan Kossel membangun model ikatan mereka berdasarkan kaidah Abegg (1904).
Pada tahun 1927, untuk pertama kalinya penjelasan matematika kuantum yang penuh atas ikatan kimia yang sederhana berhasil diturunkan oleh fisikawan Denmark Oyvind Burrau.[1] Hasil kerja ini menunjukkan bahwa pendekatan kuantum terhadap ikatan kimia dapat secara mendasar dan kuantitatif tepat. Namun metode ini tidak mampu dikembangkan lebih jauh untuk menjelaskan molekul yang memiliki lebih dari satu elektron. Pendekatan yang lebih praktis namun kurang kuantitatif dikembangkan pada tahun yang sama oleh Walter Heitler and Fritz London. Metode Heitler-London menjadi dasar dari teori ikatan valensi. Pada tahun 1929, metode orbital molekul kombinasi linear orbital atom (Bahasa Inggris: linear combination of atomic orbitals molecular orbital method), disingkat LCAO, diperkenalkan oleh Sir John Lennard-Jones yang bertujuan menurunkan struktur elektronik dari molekul F2 (fluorin) dan O2 (oksigen) berdasarkan prinsip-prinsip dasar kuantum. Teori orbital molekul ini mewakilkan ikatan kovalen sebagai orbital yang dibentuk oleh orbital-orbital atom mekanika kuantum Schrödinger yang telah dihipotesiskan untuk atom berelektron tunggal. Persamaan ikatan elektron pada multielektron tidak dapat diselesaikan secara analitik, namun dapat dilakukan pendekatan yang memberikan hasil dan prediksi yang secara kualitatif cukup baik. Kebanyakan perhitungan kuantitatif pada kimia kuantum modern menggunakan baik teori ikatan valensi maupun teori orbital molekul sebagai titik awal, walaupun pendekatan ketiga, teori fungsional rapatan (Bahasa Inggris: density functional theory), mulai mendapatkan perhatian yang lebih akhir-akhir ini.
Pada tahun 1935, H. H. James dan A. S. Coolidge melakukan perhitungan pada molekul dihidrogen.Berbeda dengan perhitungan-perhitungan sebelumnya yang hanya menggunakan fungsi-fungsi jarak antara elektron dengan inti atom, mereka juga menggunakan fungsi yang secara eksplisit memperhitungkan jarak antara dua elektron.[2] Dengan 13 parameter yang dapat diatur, mereka mendapatkan hasil yang sangat mendekati hasil yang didapatkan secara eksperimen dalam hal energi disosiasi. Perluasan selanjutnya menggunakan 54 parameter dan memberikan hasil yang sangat sesuai denganhasil eksperimen. Perhitungan ini meyakinkan komunitas sains bahwa teori kuantum dapat memberikan hasil yang sesuai dengan hasil eksperimen. Namun pendekatan ini tidak dapat memberikan gambaran fisik seperti yang terdapat pada teori ikatan valensi dan teori orbital molekul. Selain itu, ia juga sangat sulit diperluas untuk perhitungan molekul-molekul yang lebih besar.

Teori ikatan valensi

Pada tahun 1927, teori ikatan valensi dikembangkan atas dasar argumen bahwa sebuah ikatan kimia terbentuk ketika dua valensi elektron bekerja dan menjaga dua inti atom bersama oleh karena efek penurunan energi sistem. Pada tahun 1931, beranjak dari teori ini, kimawan Linus Pauling mempublikasikan jurnal ilmiah yang dianggap sebagai jurnal paling penting dalam sejarah kimia: "On the Nature of the Chemical Bond". Dalam jurnal ini, berdasarkan hasil kerja Lewis dan teori valensi ikatan Heitler dan London, dia mewakilkan enam aturan pada ikatan elektron berpasangan:
1. Ikatan elektron berpasangan terbentuk melalui interaksi elektron tak-berpasangan pada masing-masing atom.
2. Spin-spin elektron haruslah saling berlawanan.
3. Seketika dipasangkan, dua elektron tidak bisa berpartisipasi lagi pada ikatan lainnya.
4. Pertukaran elektron pada ikatan hanya melibatkan satu persamaan gelombang untuk setiap atom.
5. Elektron-elektron yang tersedia pada aras energi yang paling rendah akan membentuk ikatan-ikatan yang paling kuat.
6. Dari dua orbital pada sebuah atom, salah satu yang dapat bertumpang tindih paling banyaklah yang akan membentuk ikatan paling kuat, dan ikatan ini akan cenderung berada pada arah orbital yang terkonsentrasi.
Buku teks tahun 1939 Pauling: On the Nature of Chemical Bond menjadi apa yang banyak orang sebut sebagai "kitab suci" kimia modern. Buku ini membantu kimiawan eksperimental untuk memahami dampak teori kuantum pada kimia. Namun, edisi 1959 selanjutnya gagal untuk mengalamatkan masalah yang lebih mudah dimengerti menggunakan teori orbital molekul. Dampak dari teori valensi ini berkurang sekitar tahun 1960-an dan 1970-an ketika popularitas teori orbital molekul meningkat dan diimplementasikan pada beberapa progam komputer yang besar. Sejak tahun 1980-an, masalah implementasi teori ikatan valensi yang lebih sulit pada program-program komputer telah hampir dipecahkan dan teori ini beranjak bangkit kembali.

Teori orbital molekul

Teori orbital molekul (Bahasa Inggris: Molecular orbital tehory), disingkat MO, menggunakan kombinasi linear orbital-orbital atom untuk membentuk orbital-orbital molekul yang menrangkumi seluruh molekul. Semuanya ini seringkali dibagi menjadi orbital ikat, orbital antiikat, dan orbital bukan-ikatan. Orbital molekul hanyalah sebuah orbital Schrödinger yang melibatkan beberapa inti atom. Jika orbital ini merupakan tipe orbital yang elektron-elektronnya memiliki kebolehjadian lebih tinggi berada di antara dua inti daripada di lokasi lainnya, maka orbital ini adalah orbital ikat dan akan cenderung menjaga kedua inti bersama. Jika elektron-elektron cenderung berada di orbital molekul yang berada di lokasi lainnya, maka orbital ini adalah orbital antiikat dan akan melemahkan ikatan. Elektron-elektron yang berada pada orbital bukan-ikatan cenderung berada pada orbital yang paling dalam (hampir sama dengan orbital atom), dan diasosiasikan secara keseluruhan pada satu inti. Elektron-elektron ini tidak menguatkan maupun melemahkan kekuatan ikatan.

Perbandingan antara teori ikatan valensi dan teori orbital molekul

Pada beberapa bidang, teori ikatan valensi lebih baik daripada teori orbital molekul. Ketika diaplikasikan pada molekul berelektron dua, H2, teori ikatan valensi, bahkan dengan pendekatan Heitler-London yang paling sederhana, memberikan pendekatan energi ikatan yang lebih dekat dan representasi yang lebih akurat pada tingkah laku elektron ketika ikatan kimia terbentuk dan terputus. Sebaliknya, teori orbital molekul memprediksikan bahwa molekul hidrogen akan berdisosiasi menjadi superposisi linear dari hidrogen atom dan ion hidrogen positif dan negatif. Prediksi ini tidak sesuai dengan gambaran fisik. Hal ini secara sebagian menjelaskan mengapa kurva energi total terhadap jarak antar atom pada metode ikatan valensi berada di atas kurva yang menggunakan metode orbital molekul. Situasi ini terjadi pada semua molekul diatomik homonuklir dan tampak dengan jelas pada F2 ketika energi minimum pada kurva yang menggunakan teori orbital molekul masih lebih tinggi dari energi dua atom F.
Konsep hibridisasi sangatlah berguna dan variabilitas pada ikatan di kebanyakan senyawa organik sangatlah rendah, menyebabkan teori ini masih menjadi bagian yang tak terpisahkan dari kimia organik. Namun, hasil kerja Friedrich Hund, Robert Mulliken, dan Gerhard Herzberg menunjukkan bahwa teori orbital molekul memberikan deskripsi yang lebih tepat pada spektrokopi, ionisasi, dan sifat-sifat magnetik molekul. Kekurangan teori ikatan valensi menjadi lebih jelas pada molekul yang berhipervalensi (contohnya PF5) ketika molekul ini dijelaskan tanpa menggunakan orbital-orbital d yang sangat krusial dalam hibridisasi ikatan yang diajukan oleh Pauling. Logam kompleks dan senyawa yang kurang elektron (seperti diborana) dijelaskan dengan sangat baik oleh teori orbital molekul, walaupun penjelasan yang menggunakan teori ikatan valensi juga telah dibuat.
Pada tahun 1930, dua metode ini saling bersaing sampai disadari bahwa keduanya hanyalah merupakan pendekatan pada teori yang lebih baik. Jika kita mengambil struktur ikatan valensi yang sederhana dan menggabungkan semua struktur kovalen dan ion yang dimungkinkan pada sekelompok orbital atom, kita mendapatkan apa yang disebut sebagai fungsi gelombang interaksi konfigurasi penuh. Jika kita mengambil deskripsi orbital molekul sederhana pada keadaan dasar dan mengkombinasikan fungsi tersebut dengan fungsi-fungsi yang mendeskripsikan keseluruhan kemungkinan keadaan tereksitasi yang menggunakan orbital tak terisi dari sekelompok orbital atom yang sama, kita juga mendapatkan fungsi gelombang interaksi konfigurasi penuh. Terlihatlah bahwa pendekatan orbital molekul yang sederhana terlalu menitikberatkan pada struktur ion, sedangkan pendekatan teori valensi ikatan yang sederhana terlalu sedikit menitikberatkan pada struktur ion. Dapat kita katakan bahwa pendekatan orbital molekul terlalu ter-delokalisasi, sedangkan pendekatan ikatan valensi terlalu ter-lokalisasi.
Sekarang kedua pendekatan tersebut dianggap sebagai saling memenuhi, masing-masing memberikan pandangannya sendiri terhadap masalah-masalah pada ikatan kimia. Perhitungan modern pada kimia kuantum biasanya dimulai dari (namun pada akhirnya menjauh) pendekatan orbital molekul daripada pendekatan ikatan valensi. Ini bukanlah karena pendekatan orbital molekul lebih akurat dari pendekatan teori ikatan valensi, melainkan karena pendekatan orbital molekul lebih memudahkan untuk diubah menjadi perhitungan numeris. Namun program-progam ikatan valensi yang lebih baik juga tersedia.

          Finland joins UK’s Joint Expeditionary Force   

Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö inked the deal making Finland a member of the UK’s Joint Expeditionary Force on Friday.

Niinistö formalised the arrangement in Stockholm, where Sweden also signed up for the multinational force.

The aim of the JEF is to develop rapid reaction military performance. Other current members are Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Norway — all NATO members.

The UK invited Finland to join the group in February this year. At the time the Finnish Defence Forces said that the collaboration would not involve any new hardware purchases, since the JEF seeks to use and develop existing assets.

The JEF is not staffed by permanent troops. Rather, members contribute resources during crisis situations.

          Massive Ransomware Attack Hits Ukraine; Experts Say It's Spreading Globally   
Updated at 5:57 p.m. ET Ransomware hit at least six countries Tuesday, including Ukraine, where it was blamed for a large and coordinated attack on key parts of the nation's infrastructure, from government agencies and electric grids to stores and banks. The malware has been called "Petya" — but there is debate in the security community over whether the ransomware is new or a variant that has been enhanced to make it harder to stop. In either case, it appears to be spreading globally, raising fears it might rival another widespread attack — the WannaCry outbreak that struck in May. The Maersk shipping company , based in Denmark, confirmed that its "IT systems are down across multiple sites and business units due to a cyber attack." And pharmaceutical giant Merck tweeted that its "computer network was compromised today as part of global hack." In the U.S., Department of Homeland Security spokesman Scott McConnell says the agency is "monitoring reports of cyber attacks affecting multiple

          10 Negara Pencemar Lingkungan Terbesar di Dunia   

1. Qatar

Emisi karbon per kapita Qatar merupakan yang tertinggi di dunia. Menurut laporan Living Planet, jika setiap manusia hidup seperti orang Qatar rata-rata, maka bumi akan kehabisan sumber dayanya hampir lima kali lebih cepat dari tingkat saat ini. Karena, para warga Qatar menggunakan sumber daya dari bumi lebih banyak 50 persen dari yang dapat diambil dari bumi dalam setahun. Dengan kata lain, mereka menggunakan sumber daya setara dengan 1,5 planet bumi per tahun. Diperkirakan pada tahun 2030, mereka akan menggunakan sumber daya setara dengan 2 planet bumi setiap tahunnya. Seperti yang dilansir sidetek.
Ketika para pemimpin dunia berkumpul di Rio de Janeiro pada Juni, “biokapasitas” planet, yaitu berapa banyak jumlah kehidupan yang dapat disokong oleh Bumi, akan menjadi topik diskusi. Dan data Global Footprint menunjukkan bahwa manusia di seluruh dunia menggunakan sumber daya lebih dari biokapasitas yang dapat menyokong kehidupan mereka.
Lalu mengapa Qatar masuk ke dalam daftar negara pengkonsumsi energi tertinggi? Perlu anda ketahui, minyak yang dipompa keluar dari negara padang pasir ini bukanlah faktor utama tingginya jumlah konsumsi energi negara (kecuali jika dalam keadaan terbakar), melainkan penggunaan energi dari gedung-gedung pencakar langit di negara Timur Tengah ini menjadikan Qatar sebagai negara pemakai energi tertinggi di dunia.
Dapat anda bayangkan, untuk menyediakan air bagi para warganya saja, Qatar sudah mengkonsumsi energi dalam jumlah yang sangat besar, karena kebanyakan air di Timur Tengah diproduksi dengan cara desalinasi air laut. Dan permintaan energi meningkat sebesar 7 persen per tahun untuk menjalankan desalinator dan AC untuk menyejukkan udara padang pasir serta peralatan produksi gas alam dan minyak bumi.
2. Kuwait

Seperti Qatar yang berada di dekatnya, harga bahan bakar di Kuwait termasuk dari harga bahan bakar yang paling rendah di dunia. Meskipun begitu, Pendapatan Domestik Bruto negara ini tetap termasuk yang tertinggi di dunia. Rendahnya harga bahan bakar ini, ditambah dengan kurangnya infrastruktur angkutan umum, membuat penggunaan kendaraan pribadi menjadi satu-satunya cara untuk mobilitas warganya. Menurut Global Footprint Network, warga Kuwait rata-rata menggunakan sumber daya 22 kali lebih besar dari yang dapat negara mereka sediakan per orang.
3. Uni Emirat Arab

Meskipun menjadi negara pengekspor minyak terbesar keempat dunia (di belakang Arab Saudi, Rusia, dan Iran), Uni Emirat Arab secara terbuka mendorong pembaharuan dari protokol Kyoto (persetujuan antara negara-negara industri untuk mengurangi emisi), mengumumkan rencana untuk meningkatkan produksi energi terbarukan, dan bahkan meluncurkan proyek energi surya sebesar 1 gigawatt.
Namun Dubai, kota berpenduduk 1,5 juta orang, dengan pusat perbelanjaan terbesar di dunia, dan sebuah resor ski indoor, saat ini mendapatkan semua kebutuhan energinya dari pembakaran gas alam, itulah sebabnya negara ini menempati urutan ketiga dalam
daftar ini.
4. Denmark

Kebutuhan lahan pertanian di Denmark jauh lebih tinggi dibanding negara manapun. Karena begitu banyaknya jumlah daging yang dimakan per kapita di Denmark, negara harus mengimpor sejumlah besar gandum, yang begitu banyaknya sehingga akan mengambil 2 hektar tanah per orang, atau 2,5 kali lebih banyak tanah yang dimiliki Denmark.
5. Amerika Serikat

Jika semua orang hidup seperti orang Amerika rata-rata, produksi tahunan sumber daya bumi sudah akan habis pada akhir bulan Maret. Orang-orang Amerika lebih menyukai bepergian dengan kendaraan pribadi dibanding menggunakan angkutan umum, dan meningkatnya kebutuhan energi dan bahan bakar semakin mempertinggi emisi karbon per kapita negara ini.
6. Belgia

Biokapasitas dari lahan pertanian Belgia sangat rendah, sehingga begitu banyak makanan yang harus diimpor. Ini menjelaskan peringkat tinggi Belgia dalam daftar ini.
7. Australia

Australia menghasilkan 28,1 ton karbon dioksida per orang, salah satu tingkat emisi karbon per kapita tertinggi di dunia. Selain itu, permintaan negara ini untuk kayu, makanan, dan penggunaan padang rumput setara dengan 7 hektar tanah per orang, hampir empat kali lebih besar dari jumlah rata-rata di seluruh dunia.
8. Kanada

Biokapasitas Kanada adalah 14,92 hektar per kapita, 5,5 kali dari jumlah rata-rata konsumsi global. Walaupun hanya memiliki sedikit sumber daya, kota-kota di Kanada membutuhkan energi dengan jumlah yang sangat besar. Negara ini menempati peringkat ketujuh emisi karbon dioksida per kapita tertinggi di dunia. Emisi gas rumah kaca total di Kanada naik 24 persen antara tahun 1990 dan 2008.
9. Belanda

Negara kecil, dengan kepadatan penduduk yang tinggi dan luas lahan yang relatif sedikit untuk tanaman dan padang rumput, mengkonsumsi enam kali lebih banyak sumber daya (energi, makanan, dan banyak lagi) daripada yang mampu mereka hasilkan.
10. Irlandia

Pada tahun 2008, emisi gas rumah kaca Irlandia per kapita merupakan yang tertinggi kedua di Uni Eropa. Pertanian adalah sumber terbesar dari emisi ini, namun emisi dari kendaraan meningkat lebih dari dua kali lipat sejak 1998.
Namun, telah terjadi perbaikan dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, tahun 2009 adalah tahun kedua berturut-turut di mana emisi transportasi menurun, dan peningkatan sumber energi terbarukan dalam awal tahun 2000-an menurunkan jumlah emisi dari sektor energi sebesar 10 persen pada 2009.

          Europe Forecast: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, Jun 30 - 10:13   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.


          Foundation ownership, reputation, and labour   
<span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>A number of firms in northern Europe and especially in Denmark are owned by private foundations similarly to what would have been the case if the Ford Foundation had owned a majority of the shares in Ford Motor Company. Foundation-owned companies appear to perform surprisingly well in terms of profitability and growth, despite lacking governance mechanisms such as profit incentives or takeover threats. Given their non-profit ownership, they might be expected to behave more responsibly towards stakeholders, such as employees or customers (<a href="#CIT0016" class="reflinks">Hansmann, 1980</a>), but so far there has been little empirical evidence to support this hypothesis. This paper presents new research on the reputation and responsibility of foundation-owned companies. In a panel of large Danish companies 2001–11 we find that foundation-owned firms have better reputations and are regarded as more socially responsible in corporate image ratings. Secondary evidence on labour market behaviour is consistent with these findings. Using matched employer–employee data we show that foundation-owned companies are more stable employers, pay their employees better, and keep them for longer. Altogether, the evidence indicates that foundation-ownership is associated with more responsible business behaviour towards employees.</span>

Dreams of a gender-neutral O Canada are over — for now-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

Canadians will not be singing a gender-neutral national anthem on Canada Day after a bill before Parliament to officially change the lyrics has stalled.The House of Commons overwhelmingly passed a private member's bill last summer that would alter the national anthem by replacing "in all thy sons command" with "in all of us command" as part of a push to strike gendered language from O Canada.Although the bill sailed through the House with government approval, Conservative senators opposed to the changes have scored a victory in the Red Chamber. A yearlong campaign successfully punted a vote on the bill until the fall, at the earliest, and even then the legislation faces an uncertain future."I'm trying to protect the tradition rather than, you know, water it down with a politically correct version that is historically inaccurate," Conservative Senator David Wells said in an interview with CBC News on Tuesday."I don't misrepresent why I'm [using parliamentary stall tactics] … I don't like this bill, and I will do what I can to ensure it doesn't pass."Wells and a number of other senators have said they oppose efforts to tinker with the lyrics written by a man long dead.(The lyrics have been changed since they were first penned by Robert Stanley Weir in 1908, but not since O Canada officially became the country's national anthem in 1980.) The late Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger introduced the bill, and many MPs backed the legislation as a salute to a colleague on his death bed."The bill was passed in the House compassionately and out of sadness for a dying colleague. While that is touching, it is not the way we make public policy in this country and it is not the way we do our legislation," Ontario Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak said.A flurry of amendments were introduced to the bill in the last few weeks of the parliamentary sitting — all failed to pass in the face of opposition from most Liberal and Independent senators — which dragged out debate considerably. Parliament rose for summer break before a final vote at third reading could be held.Ramona Lumpkin, the chancellor of Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, and a strong proponent of the bill, said she was deeply disappointed by the developments."We're so close and I really regret that there are a few senators who seem to have dug in and decided to delay. I hope it's not a permanent block," said Lumpkin, in an interview with CBC News."It's not as if the words were brought down from Mount Sinai on stone tablets like the Ten Commandments, they are words created by humans and subject to change as our social and cultural conditions change, and thank goodness they do," she said.Wells said national symbols cannot be altered to simply adhere to the "flavour of the day." He said Canadians were not consulted by the government and that there hasn't been an adequate conversation about a fairly significant change."I'll be working my hardest to delay this bill until there's a full debate," he said. "I get a lot of emails, and many comments to me personally, from people who don't want to see the anthem change, who see it as a part of our tradition and who see this attempt to change it as political correctness run amok. It is a slippery slope. Calls for inclusion will always be there, but my belief is all Canadians are already included in the national anthem."He said pictures adorning the walls of the Senate depict men in combat during the First World War. "Would we now airbrush females into those pictures to accurately reflect what it might be today with those pieces of Canadians' history? My answer is no, that would be an abomination, and I think that's what it is with the anthem as well."If the bill is amended in the Senate it would be sent back to the House for another vote. As per parliamentary rules, because Bélanger is dead, MPs will have to unanimously agree to replace him as sponsor or the bill drops from the order paper; that is unlikely given entrenched opposition from some corners of the chamber."That worries me," Lumpkin said. "I know language matters and I talk to students and young women regularly who still feel their voice doesn't carry as strong as the voice of their male friends. I think the gesture, even though it's symbolic, would say a lot to those young women."The Liberal government could also choose to introduce legislation of its own — with the same wording — to avoid some of the problems that often befall private member's bills; namely, the government could invoke time allocation to prevent procedural time delays.

Opinion-G20 is 'test run' for Trump-era climate governance By Simon Schunz-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 09:06-Weeks after US president Donald Trump announced the US' withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, the debate is still raging on in regard to the possible implications of his decision.Some fear a global domino effect, with more countries renouncing climate protection pledges and ceasing domestic emission reduction efforts.Others argue that the Paris accord's architecture is sufficiently resilient, and that efforts to keep global temperature increases to "well below 2°C" – as stipulated by the agreement – will endure.Activities at the sub-national level in the US also seem to support the argument that the agreement will prevail and domestic opponents of Trump’s decision have mobilised remarkably quickly.Cities and states with progressive climate policies joined forces across the US, committing themselves to honouring the Paris agreement.For instance, support came via the bipartisan "US Climate Alliance" of states – including heavyweights such as California and New York – and the "We Are Still In" initiative, which involves hundreds of businesses, investors, and institutes of higher education.Moreover, these sub-national players are linking up with leading nations to create innovative climate diplomacy networks: California and China have held talks to collaborate on emission reduction efforts, while several US states have intensified climate cooperation with Canada.Though these developments enhance the Paris agreement’s chances of survival, they will not be enough.Fight for survival-The resilience of the agreement hinges on how other major emitters will react to Trump’s break.To pursue effective global climate governance, these countries must repeat the steps taken in the run-up to the 2015 Paris climate meeting, where a strategy of "multiple bilateralism" between US-China, China-India and China-EU (among others) served to build trust and resolve crunch issues.The emerging consensus among key emitters was translated into cooperation in the world’s club governance fora (G7, G20) and fed into the multilateral negotiations, leading to the Paris agreement’s ultimate entry into force.True to this spirit, six members (plus the EU) were already pressuring the US to remain committed to the Paris agreement at the recent G7 summit in Sicily. Not that it seemed to do much good, as Trump withdrew from the climate pact a few days later.The next litmus test for effective global climate governance comes in July, when leaders from countries accounting for 80% of global emissions meet for the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on 7-8 July.With the US thrusting itself into isolation, the German G20 presidency will seek to gather the broadest possible support for the Paris agreement.But a question remains: is a G20 entente possible? It might be, if others show the way.Climate leaders-From the G7, the EU and Canada display the clearest leadership ambitions.EU heavyweights have signalled their "strongest commitment" to uphold their pledges to combat climate change.In his reaction to Trump’s Paris exit, Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, confirmed his country's "unwavering commitment to fight climate change".The Canadian government has also vehemently denied recent reports that Trudeau wished to scrap references to climate from the draft G20 declaration, in order to appease the US government.But leaders need followers. And whether followers can be mobilised depends on how G20 members define their interests – economically and politically.Economically, many G20 countries appear to believe the energy transition – accelerated by the Paris Agreement – must continue.Investing in low-carbon development is no longer seen as a burden on growth prospects. If anything, there is a growing consensus that Trump’s decision will put the US at risk of lagging behind technologically.Politically, the relationship between G20 countries and the US (particularly the Trump administration) is tricky.Are countries like Australia, Japan, Turkey and the UK willing to risk relations with the president of a key ally by adopting a confrontational attitude over climate change? The answer depends heavily on whether the German G20 presidency can dispel their concerns by convincingly demonstrating that the world is changing – because it is.-Changing world-At an EU-China summit the day after Trump’s announcement, a draft joint declaration on climate change characterised the Paris Agreement as “an historic achievement further accelerating the irreversible global low greenhouse gas emission and climate resilient development” and outlined numerous joint actions.Although it was ultimately withheld due to trade-related differences, this declaration contains the blueprint for a shifting centre of gravity in global climate governance to Eurasia.If supported by India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, who has reiterated support for the Paris Agreement, a solid pro-climate coalition including three of the world’s top four emitters would emerge.Cooperation with Canada, and with the sub-national forces in the US, could then provide additional momentum to convince other G20 members.As a major guiding forum, the G20 represents a test run for the future of global climate governance during the Trump era.The direction this governance will take, depends heavily on the strength of emerging partnerships, and their ability to convince others to join them regardless of US policies.If the will is robust enough, this "multiple bilateralism" could bring about the dawn of a new era, and the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement.If it fails, however, global climate politics faces a complicated, daunting future.Dr Simon Schunz is a Research Fellow at the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), and a professor of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies at the College of Europe in Bruges.

Opinion-EU parliament should befriend transparency By Sylvie GUILLAUME and Danuta HUEBNER-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 17:24-A few days ago, an NGO representative expressed her concerns about the way the European Parliament was dealing with the European Commission’s proposal for a revised inter-institutional agreement on a “mandatory transparency register”.The proposal was submitted by the EU commission on 28 September 2016 and aimed at including the Council of the EU, where representatives of member states sit, as a new partner within the framework.Following the commission's proposal, the EU parliament’s Conference of Presidents entrusted us, as the responsible lead negotiators - supported by a contact group composed of one MEP from each political group - with developing a draft negotiating mandate.We organised five contact group meetings, where detailed discussions provided the opportunity for all political groups to give their input and ideas. It led to the endorsement of a balanced text on 11 April this year.We enriched our deliberations by means of a half-day meeting between the contact group and the involved NGO representatives - including Nina Katzemich from the website LobbyControl, and others from organisations such as Transparency International, Civil Society Europe and Corporate Europe Observatory.We listened carefully to their concerns, many of which we had already incorporated into our work, such as the necessity to enlarge the definition of lobbying and to include an independent observer in the management structure of the transparency register.We also discussed how we to pursue the negotiations with the EU commission and the council in order to get those concerns taken on board.Instead of the expected swift adoption of the mandate, which would signal the parliament’s readiness to enter into negotiations, we were deeply troubled to find that the item had been taken off the agenda of the Conference of Presidents on successive occasions.-Horse-trading-It appeared that some MEPs used procedural manoeuvres and political horse-trading to achieve repeated postponements of the adoption of the mandate, even though a large majority in parliament supported its content.It seems that it is sometimes those who believe themselves to be on the path of righteousness, who are most willing to misuse our system of procedures to score cheap political points.We found it disturbing that some wilfully ignored parliament’s power to determine its own internal organisation.It has also saddened us to see that some of those who claim to be at the forefront of stemming the tide of populism, do not seem to mind riding on that very same tide when it serves their own political ends.However, we were glad to see that the Conference of Presidents finally adopted the mandate two weeks ago on 15 June, in the very same form that had been proposed by the contact group.Following its adoption, the mandate was immediately published on the EU parliament’s website.Regarding the free and independent mandate of MEPs - enshrined in EU primary law - it is noteworthy that the independence of elected representatives is a cornerstone of a representative democracy and a principle this is not easily dismissed.Therefore, any limitation on MEPs in the exercise of their free mandate must be proportionate and cannot, for example, unduly restrict his or her right to seek information.Moreover, a principle enshrined in primary law cannot be altered by secondary law, let alone by an inter-institutional agreement.The mandate adopted on 15 June is based on a long line of parliament’s decisions regarding its relations with interest representatives.It reflects the position of a broad majority of MEPs and it constitutes a solid base for negotiations on a significant improvement to the current transparency register and a widening of its scope.-Negotiating framework-The mandate should be understood as a framework for the negotiations.Parliament’s position will continue to be adapted as the negotiations progress. Once the negotiations are concluded, parliament will adopt follow-up decisions with respect to its internal organisation, in order to implement the new inter‑institutional agreement.But the European Parliament still remains committed to pushing for a transparency regulation that would go beyond an inter-institutional agreement and lay down the relevant provisions on transparency and the register in secondary law.One should not forget the progress that parliament has achieved so far in this field. It initiated the Transparency Register as early as 1996, as well as a Code of Conduct with a commitment for registered lobbyists to act in accordance with high ethical standards.Parliament is, and remains, the most open EU institution, which can be seen with the web-streaming of its meetings and the ability for citizens to visit all of its buildings.Furthermore, parliament decided that registration on the transparency register was to be made a requirement to be invited as a speaker at committee hearings and to receive a long-term access badge for its premises.It also put in place a voluntary legislative footprint last year, and it encourages its MEPs to meet only with registered organisations.Katzemich considers the EU commission to have made a big step in 2015 by publishing meetings of commissioners, heads of cabinets and directors‑general.Certainly, this is true. However, this measure was decided by the commission with a view to its own internal organisation and cannot be easily translated to other institutions such as EU parliament or the council, both of which have a different set-up.Furthermore, the commission’s system is not without its flaws and has room for improvement, as Transparency International and other organisations regularly report.As the EU parliament's lead negotiators, we are particularly committed to getting the council on board and to adding significant value compared to the current framework.Three principles-A new register should encompass the following three principles.First, the widest possible scope of application for EU institutions and other bodies, including meaningful participation of the council.Next, a comprehensive and clear framework, without weakening the current system, for the regulation of interest representation activities.Finally, structures and resources that guarantee effective implementation.One of the main issues is that the new inter-institutional agreement provides a framework for coordination among the EU institutions, while at the same time fully respecting their different competences and prerogatives.-The mandate-The approach we have developed in our mandate would allow for:- The full respect of MEPs' independent mandate.- An inclusive transparency policy for all types of interest representative, as with the current register that features over 11200 registered interest groups from all over the world.- The possibility to maintain the wider definition of lobbying, covering both direct and indirect interest representation (as with the current system).- The full respect for each institutions’ needs, e.g. in the case of parliament as an open house but also with the need to know, for security reasons, who is coming in and why.- More flexibility in respect to the EU institutions’ roles and structures (parliament cannot simply duplicate rules that were designed for the commission).- Better quality information on the database – making the register more reliable as a source of information for the institutions themselves and for the general public.The quality of the new system will depend on how far the council can be convinced to match the parliament’s and commission’s commitment to transparency.We would therefore advise to look at the whole picture and analyse the situation comprehensively, especially with a view to scrutinising the council’s approach.It takes time to change long-standing practices, but we are fully committed to forge ahead, knowing that a pragmatic and constructive approach will yield the best results.Transparency certainly is one important aspect of ensuring citizens’ trust in the EU institutions. But it is not the only one. Keeping true to the facts is another.Sylvie Guillaume is a vice-president of the European Parliament, and Danuta Huebner is the chair of the constitutional affairs committee-Correction: The article's footnote originally said that Danuta Huebner is the chair of the foreign affairs committee, when in fact, she is the chair of the constitutional affairs committee

EU Commission could get say on Russia gas pipeline By Andrew Rettman-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 27. Jun, 09:29-EU states have given initial backing for the European Commission to negotiate the legal model of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline with Russia.Pablo Micallef, a spokesman for the Maltese EU presidency, told EUobserver that “some 13” member states spoke out on the plan when EU energy ministers met for informal talks in Brussels on Monday.The incoming Estonian EU presidency is now expected to convene a working group to take things forward.The Danish energy minister, Lars Christian Lilleholt, who was among the 13 EU backers, said: “I’m very satisfied. It was the best thing that could have come out of the meeting”.The mandate will have to be formally approved later down the line in a “reinforced qualified majority” vote by member states, a higher than usual threshold of 72 percent of EU countries representing 65 percent of its population.Maros Sefcovic, the EU energy commissioner who drafted the proposal, told the Reuters news agency: “I’m definitely optimistic about getting the [formal] mandate, but I know this is just the beginning of the debate."Nord Stream 2 is to concentrate 70 percent of Russian gas supplies to Europe in one route to Germany under the Baltic Sea.But its critics, which include the Nordic states, the Baltic countries, Poland, and the US, say it would harm EU energy security and undermine Ukraine, a Western ally, by making Ukraine’s transit pipes obsolete.-EU laws-Anna-Kaisa Itkonen, the Commission’s energy spokeswoman, told EUobserver on Tuesday that the Commission wanted to talk to Russia on whether the offshore part of Nord Stream 2 should be covered by the EU’s so-called third energy package.That EU law would oblige Russian state firm Gazprom to open up its Nord Stream 2 monopoly to EU competitors - a demand which led Russia to stop a previous project, the South Stream pipeline under the Black Sea to Bulgaria.But Itkonen said the talks would “not [be] about a [Commission] veto, it is not about the future of the pipeline, not about the Commission approving it or not”.She said the Commission-Russia talks would be designed to give “legal certainty” on Nord Stream 2 and that they would be “nothing spectacular or extraordinary” because EU officials had held similar discussions with “third countries” on other projects.The Nord Stream 2 regulatory framework is currently being negotiated between Germany and Russia.German, Austrian, French, and Anglo-Dutch firms - Uniper, Wintershall, OMV, Engie, and Shell - are to take part in the project, with Germany and Austria keen to press ahead.Neither the German nor the Austrian minister spoke out on Monday, EU sources told Reuters, but Germany and Austria recently attacked the US over its threat to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2 investors.“We decide who supplies us with energy and how they do it”, the German and Austrian foreign ministers said in a joint statement on 15 June.-Ukraine unhappy-Pavlo Klimkin, the Ukrainian foreign minister, told Reuters in Paris on Monday that Nord Stream 2 "would have disastrous consequences for the energy security of the European Union and would make the EU dependent on one source.""Maybe some companies will benefit for the time being, but in the long-run it will lead nowhere”, he said.He added that there was no progress on Russia ending hostilities in east Ukraine."How can you trust Russia in setting up a unique source of gas supply?”, he said, referring to broader EU and US concerns over Russia’s aggressive behaviour toward neighbouring states.

Focus-Nordics consider alternative to EU emissions trading system By Lisbeth Kirk-june 28,17-euobserver

Copenhagen, Today, 07:44-If the European emissions trading system is not reformed to work efficiently, a Nordic carbon price floor could be introduced to secure future green investments in the region, according to a new strategic review of energy co-operation by the Nordic Council.The plan, which has been in preparation for over a year, is penned by Finnish businessman Jorma Ollila, who had formerly chaired Royal Dutch Shell for almost ten years and was the chairman and CEO of Nokia.It comes at a crucial time, just as the final talks on reforming the EU's carbon trading scheme are due to take place in Brussels.On Tuesday (27 June), representatives of the EU member states, the European Parliament and the European Commission met for one of the final meetings on how the EU’s flagship climate instrument – the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) – should look in the 2021-2030 period.But before the real talks have even started, hopes of reforming the EU system to work efficiently are fading.”I think everyone realises that this is not enough. The [EU] proposal will not deliver a carbon price that we need to decarbonise the industry sectors,” said Femke de Jong, EU policy director for Carbon Market Watch.Her organisation brings together more than 800 NGOs and academics from 70 different countries, working to make the carbon market “an effective climate mitigation tool.””I think it is only logical to have a debate on how we can complement the system. A carbon floor price – at least at the regional level – seems a realistic option,” de Jong said.-Nordic energy union-Norway and Sweden are strong on hydropower, Norway produces oil and gas, Denmark has wind, while Finland and Sweden have built nuclear plants and are pushing for more bio-fuels as a future energy resource.Some 20 years ago, these countries decided to connect their national electricity grids with water reservoirs, allowing hydropower to serve as a kind of Nordic battery to compensate for periods without wind, for example.”There were significant benefits, welfare benefits, lower electricity prices and easier management of the generation of electricity in tough times or during high peak demand in winter times,” Ollila pointed out.This Nordic solution, Ollila said, has been "managed historically very well". He added that since the EU is looking into different prospects for the energy union, there is an opportunity to learn from "what has been done in Nordic countries over the past 20 years."In addition to Nordic carbon trade, Ollila also suggested a Nordic export strategy for green energy solutions, alignment of research and using the whole Nordic area as a testbed.Nuuk in Greenland has been suggested to become a testbed for the full deployment of electric vehicles, and Reykjavik in Iceland may become a testing ground for infrastructure and systems that can support electrification of visiting cruise and fishing ships.The Faroe Islands may become the place for the development of battery technology and energy storage.-Green transition and growth-Put together, the Nordic region today is one of the 12 largest economies in the world and it is already living proof that the green transition is not incompatible with economic growth.However, the Nordics must become even greener to complete their transition into renewable energy, the Nordic Council report said."The energy transition is already underway – but if the Nordic countries do not participate to the fullest, the jobs will be created elsewhere," warned Jorma Ollila."The renewables will take off faster than what was thought only five years ago. So, the role of the renewables will grow quite significantly," he added."The focus should be on securing the most efficient green transition. If the ETS does not provide this, it may be relevant and timely to discuss a joint Nordic approach to support the schemes for renewable energy," Ollila's report concluded.”Another approach could be to discuss the introduction of a Nordic carbon price, based on the United Kingdom’s carbon price floor, in order to secure stronger incentives for the green transition,” it said.-UK leads the way-The prospect of a regionalised European carbon trading system in the future is not limited to the Nordic area. For instance, the UK already introduced a carbon price floor in 2013.”So far, the only country in Europe that has a carbon floor price is the UK. There it was very effective. They introduced a carbon floor price in 2013 and it has resulted in UK coal emissions falling by almost 60% last year," Femke de Jong said, adding: "So it is really significant."She goes on to say that: "It can be a very effective instrument to – at least in the intermediate time – to make sure that the carbon price reflects the damage cost of the pollution to the society.”Under the UK carbon floor price system, carbon emission prices rise automatically – currently at 18 pounds sterling (€20) from 2016 to 2020.Currently the carbon price in Europe stands at €5, but it should rise to €40 to meet the objectives of the Paris climate agreement and rise further to €100 in 2030.-Regional carbon trade-”Ideally, this should be solved at the EU level, but if this is not possible in the short-term, it makes sense to go for a regional solution,” de Jong said.”France has been pushing for it very much in the past and we think that now, with Macron [as president of France], he will also push for that," she added."Let's see," she said, "maybe after the German elections, there can also be a regional carbon price in Western Europe – with Germany, maybe Belgium, the Netherlands and France."Linking the Nordic carbon trade to the British system might be made complicated by the Brexit process, however.”I think it might be tricky for the Nordic countries to join the UK system,” said de Jong.”It is still an open question if the UK will withdraw from the ETS or not. Maybe it is also an idea to team up more with other countries that are contemplating this,” she suggested.

Luxembourg not a tax haven, claims PM By Nikolaj Nielsen-june 28,17-euobserver

Luxembourg, Today, 08:42-Luxembourg continues to refute any notion that it is a tax haven, despite widespread evidence of dubious schemes that it cuts global tax bills for big firms."We were never a tax haven," Luxembourg's prime minister, Xavier Bettel, told EUobserver on Tuesday (27 June).Bettel's comments follow a grilling of Luxembourg's former prime minister and current European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker. Juncker in late May told the European Parliament that he was unable to explain why the Grand Duchy "didn't want to remove tax secrecy."But Bettel, who was fielding a wide range of questions from reporters at an event hosted by the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg, defended the country's tax policies by saying it was one of the first places to push transparency and the exchange of tax rulings with other member states."It is important for me that we have common rules and Luxembourg was one of the first one for transparency," he said.Luxembourg was rocked by scandal following media revelations in late 2014 that exposed how nearly 340 companies secured secret deals that shaved billions of euros from taxes, which were due to be paid elsewhere.The revelations ushered in a raft of new EU and national legislation to increase tax transparency and weed out abuse.The scandal also triggered a probe by the European Parliament, which slammed Luxembourg for allowing corporations to dodge "tax that could have been used to build schools, hospitals or pay down national debt."A report by the Brussels-based NGO, Eurodad, had also revealed last December that Luxembourg had in fact increased the number of so-called tax rulings in the wake of the 2014 media revelations by some 50 percent.The issue saw former PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) employee Antoine Deltour face prison time for leaking the secret rules to the media, posing larger questions on whistleblower protection laws.But Bettel maintained that his country was fully compliant with tax standards and had not committed a crime."There are over 20 countries in Europe doing [tax] rulings," he noted, echoing a similar refrain to his predecessor, Juncker.Luxembourg, under Juncker's decade-long leadership of the country, had also repeatedly blocked the rolling back of aggressive tax planning schemes throughout the EU, according to a cache of German cables leaked earlier this year.Bettel also opposes any pan-EU taxation system and refuses to impose any sort of tax on financial transactions.The financial transaction tax, also known as the FTT, aims to raise money for the public good by imposing a 0.1 percent tax on shares and bonds, and 0.01 percent on derivative products."I am fully against and I will block that," said Bettel. But he noted that other member states are free to move ahead on the file as part of a two-speed Europe.He also added that people in Luxembourg should not have to pay more tax only "because other countries were not responsible with public finances."

New cyberattack wallops Europe; spreads more slowly in US-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

PARIS — A new and highly virulent outbreak of data-scrambling software — apparently sown in Ukraine — caused disruption across the world Tuesday. Following a similar attack in May , the fresh cyber-assault paralyzed some hospitals, government offices and major multinational corporations in a dramatic demonstration of how easily malicious programs can bring daily life to a halt.Ukraine and Russia appeared hardest hit by the new strain of ransomware — malicious software that locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release. In the United States, the malware affected companies such as the drugmaker Merck and Mondelez International, the owner of food brands such as Oreo and Nabisco.Its pace appeared to slow as the day wore on, in part because the malware appeared to require direct contact between computer networks, a factor that may have limited its spread in regions with fewer connections to Ukraine.The malware's origins remain unclear. Researchers picking the program apart found evidence its creators had borrowed from leaked National Security Agency code, raising the possibility that the digital havoc had spread using U.S. taxpayer-funded tools."The virus is spreading all over Europe and I'm afraid it can harm the whole world," said Victor Zhora, the chief executive of Infosafe IT in Kyiv , where reports of the malicious software first emerged early afternoon local time Tuesday.In Ukraine, victims included top-level government offices, where officials posted photos of darkened computer screens, as well as energy companies, banks, cash machines, gas stations, and supermarkets. Ukrainian Railways and the communications company Ukrtelecom were among major enterprises hit, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said in a Facebook post .The virus hit the radiation-monitoring at Ukraine's shuttered Chornobyl power plant, site of the world's worst nuclear accident, forcing it into manual operation.Multinational companies, including the global law firm DLA Piper and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk were also affected, although the firms didn't specify the extent of the damage.Ukraine bore the brunt with more than 60 per cent of the attacks, followed by Russia with more than 30 per cent , according to initial findings by researchers at the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab. It listed Poland, Italy and Germany, in that order, as the next-worst affected.In the U.S, two hospitals in western Pennsylvania were hit; patients reported on social media that some surgeries had to be rescheduled. A spokeswoman for Heritage Valley Health System would say only that operational changes had to be made. A Wellsville, Ohio, woman at one of its hospitals to have her gallbladder removed said she noticed computer monitors off and nurses scurrying around with stacks of paperwork.Security experts said Tuesday's global cyberattack shares something in common with last month's outbreak of ransomware, dubbed WannaCry . Both spread using digital lock picks originally created by the NSA and later published to the web by a still-mysterious group known as the Shadowbrokers.Security vendors including Bitdefender and Kaspersky said the NSA exploit, known as EternalBlue, lets malware spread rapidly across internal networks at companies and other large organizations. Microsoft issued a security fix in March, but Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at the security firm Veracode, said it would only be effective if every single computer on a network were patched — otherwise, a single infected machine could infect all others."Once activated, the virus can automatically and freely distribute itself on your network," Ukraine's cyberpolice tweeted.Bogdan Botezatu, an analyst with Bitdefender, compared such self-spreading software to a contagious disease. "It's like somebody sneezing into a train full of people," he said.Ryan Kalember, a security expert at Proofpoint, said one reason the attacks appeared to be slowing down was that the ransomware appears to spread only when a direct contact exists between two networks — such as when a global company's Ukraine office interacts with headquarters.But once it hits a computer on a network, it spreads quickly, even among computers that have applied the fix for the NSA exploit."It's more harmful to the organization that it affects, but because it's not randomly spreading over the internet like WannaCry, it's somewhat contained to the organizations that were connected to each other," Kalember said.Botezatu said the new program appeared nearly identical to GoldenEye, a variant of a known family of hostage-taking programs known as "Petya." It demanded $300 in Bitcoin.Unlike typical ransomware, which merely scrambles personal data files, the program wreaking havoc Tuesday overwrites a computer's master boot record, making it tougher to restore even a machine that has been backed up, said Kalember.It may have first spread through a rogue update to a piece of Ukrainian accounting software called MEDoc, according to tweets by the country's cyberpolice unit. It said a rogue update seeded the infection across Ukraine. In a lengthy statement posted to Facebook, MEDoc acknowledged having been hacked.The motives of those behind the malware remain unknown. Ukraine has been a persistent target of pro-Russian hackers, who are blamed for twice shutting down large swaths of its power grid in the dead of winter and sabotaging its elections system in a bid to disrupt May 2014 national elections.Emails sent Tuesday to an address posted to the bottom of ransom demands went unreturned. That might be because the email provider hosting that address, Berlin-based Posteo, pulled the plug on the account before the infection became widely known.In an email, a Posteo representative said it had blocked the email address "immediately" after learning that it was associated with ransomware. The company added that it was in contact with German authorities "to make sure that we react properly."___Bajak reported from Houston.

Trudeau appoints his first climate change ambassador with revamped mandate-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tapped a long-time Canadian diplomat to step into a revamped role of Canada's ambassador for climate change.Canada hasn't had such an ambassador since January 2015.Jennifer MacIntyre fills the role as of Tuesday, with a mandate to push Canada's international relationships on the climate change file, including promoting Canadian clean technology businesses abroad.She is the fifth person to hold the title of ambassador for climate change — but the first where the role is not the equivalent of Canada's chief negotiator for climate change treaties.As such she will not be on hand next week when Trudeau sits down with other G20 leaders in Germany where the Paris climate change agreement will be front and centre.Instead her role is to find ways for Canada to take advantage of any international opportunities for trade and investment that climate change policies bring.MacIntyre spent most of the last four years as the ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein.The Canadian Press.

NATO chief: US allies to spend $12 billion more this year-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

BRUSSELS — NATO's chief says U.S. allies are projected to spend around $12 billion more on defence this year, after President Donald Trump berated them for failing to boost military budgets.NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that "we have really shifted gears. The (spending) trend is up and we intend to keep it up."Unveiling new figures, Stoltenberg said European allies and Canada have increased spending by almost $46 billion over the last three years.He said 25 of NATO's 29 allies aim to raise defence spending in 2017.Only the United States, Britain, Estonia, debt-burden Greece and Poland met NATO's spending targets last year. Romania says it will meet the 2 per cent of GDP guideline this year, while Latvia and Lithuania plan to in 2018.The Associated Press.

Wind fans the flames of Utah fire that has burned 13 homes-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY — Firefighters are bracing for more high winds Wednesday as they try to slow a southern Utah wildfire that has burned 13 homes and forced the evacuation of 1,500 people.Firefighters are hoping to be able to put out hot spots on the southern end of the fire to allow residents to return to the ski town of Brian Head. Homes there have been evacuated since June 17 when authorities say it was started by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds on private land.The fire is the largest in the nation at 78 square miles (201 square kilometres ).The blaze is one of several in the West. Crews in California were making gains against two new fires that spread quickly, and firefighters in Idaho battled five lightning-sparked wildfires burning in grass and brush.

Trudeau touts open Canadian immigration system in face of Trump travel ban-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 27, 2017

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will continue to promote Canada's open immigration policy on the world stage as controversy rages over U.S. President Donald Trump's travel ban.Trudeau said Tuesday during a news conference in Ottawa to wrap up the parliamentary sitting that government officials have had "multiple conversations" with the U.S. administration about protecting Canadian rights in the face of immigration decisions south of the border."But at the same time, Canadians have been very clear that we see immigration as a net positive, that we know we don't have to compromise security to build stronger, more resilient communities," he said. "I will continue to stand for Canadian values and Canadian success in our immigration system as I always have, whether it's in Washington or in Hamburg next week or elsewhere around the world."On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a limited version of Trump's ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect.The justices will hear full arguments in October, but in the meantime, the court said Trump's ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen could be enforced if those visitors lack a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."-Trudeau defends sniper role-In the wide-ranging news conference in the National Press Theatre, Trudeau was asked about topics ranging from trade concerns with the U.S. to recent news that a Canadian special forces member had shot and killed an ISIS fighter at a record distance for a sniper.Trudeau called the sniper actions "entirely consistent" with the role of troops in northern Iraq. The "advise and assist" mission has always had an element of defending Canadian forces as well as our coalition partners, he said."That is something that is integral to this mission, and that is something that has always been followed," he said.NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has said the incident suggests Canadian forces are actually involved in direct combat in Iraq, and has called on Trudeau to provide the public with more details on the role of the mission.Trudeau said the incident should be "celebrated" for demonstrating the excellence in training and performance of duties by the Canadian Forces.National Defence said the sniper, part of the Joint Task Force 2 special forces unit, was supporting Iraqi forces when he shot an enemy fighter from 3,540 metres away.That is more than a kilometre farther than the previous record, held by a British sniper who shot a Taliban fighter in Afghanistan in 2009.Trudeau also said he broke his key electoral promise to reform Canada's electoral system because there was no compromise from other parties, and he didn't want to use his Liberal majority to ram through fundamental change."There was no path to do that."-'No path' on electoral reform-Trudeau said Liberals preferred a ranked ballot system, while the NDP wanted a proportional voting system that would have led to "fragmented" parties.Conservatives wanted to keep the status quo, he said."It was a very difficult decision for me," Trudeau said in describing his decision to break the promise.Asked about when the government will eliminate the deficit, Trudeau said his government is targeting billions in new spending on infrastructure and other services Canadians need and will not put a timeframe on when it will "arbitrarily" balance the books.Trudeau also touted what he sees as the government's key accomplishments so far, namely helping improve the quality of life for the middle class and taking steps to tackle the opioid crisis before taking questions.The prime minister also reacted to a new round of anti-dumping tariffs imposed on Canada's softwood lumber industry by the U.S. Department of Commerce. He said he is focused on being "constructive" and working toward a deal that will help protect thousands of jobs in Canada.Earlier Tuesday, the prime minister issued a statement to mark Multiculturalism Day.'Differences make us strong'"Canadians come from every corner of the world, speak two official languages and hundreds more, practise many faiths, and represent many cultures," he said. "Multiculturalism is at the heart of Canada's heritage and identity, and as Canadians, we recognize that our differences make us strong."Canada's tradition of multiculturalism has meant fresh perspectives and new answers to old problems, Trudeau said.Noting that Canada is celebrating both the 150th anniversary of Confederation and the 35th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Trudeau said the milestones are a reminder of the values that unite Canadians: Openness, inclusion and deep respect for our differences."Whoever we are, wherever we come from, these values bring us together as equal members of this great country," he said.

U.S.-led coalition envoy visits Syria to discuss Raqqa aftermath-YAHOONEWS-[Reuters]-June 28, 2017

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Brett McGurk, the U.S. special envoy to the coalition against Islamic State visited north Syria on Wednesday and met the council planning to run Raqqa after its capture from the jihadists to assure it of support, one of its members said.The U.S.-led coalition is supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias that began fighting inside Raqqa three weeks ago.The SDF announced the creation of the Raqqa Civil Council in April to replace militant rule in a city that has for three years been Islamic State's de facto capital in Syria.McGurk has met the council in Ain Issa in north Syria twice before in meetings that were not publicized, a member of the Raqqa Civil Council, Omar Alloush, said.Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the coalition, said coalition members are routinely in northern Syria working with the SDF and other local entities including the council. He could not confirm McGurk's visit on Wednesday and referred queries to the special envoy's office.Alloush said McGurk and other coalition officials, including its deputy commander Major General Rupert Jones, promised infrastructure help but did not discuss how much money was available."They did not specify any sum, but they decided we will support first removing mines, lifting rubble, maintenance of schools, then electricity stations and water," Alloush said.This month, volunteers at the council told Reuters they had informed the coalition it would take about $10 million a year to restore power and water supplies, roads and schools.(Reporting by Tom Perry; Writing by Angus McDowall; Editing by Louise Ireland)

Cluster bombs kill at least 15 in eastern Syria-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

BEIRUT — A cluster bomb attack on an Islamic State-held village in eastern Syria killed at least 15 people on Wednesday, activists said, the latest in a series of devastating airstrikes along the Euphrates River ValleyTwo Syrian monitoring groups, Deir Ezzor 24 and Justice For Life, said the weapons were dropped on the village of Doblan by an unidentified jet. Russian, Syrian, and U.S.-led coalition aircraft are all known to operate in the area.Cluster bombs are designed to spread small bomblets across a wide area, but many fail to explode, endangering civilians long after the fighting has ended.Omar Abou Layla, the head of Deir Ezzor 24, said 15 bodies, including of women and children, were recovered in the village. He said residents expect to find many more killed.Ali Rahbe, of Justice For Life, said local informants counted at least 35 dead in the village, which is between the IS strongholds of al-Mayadeen and Boukamal.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the initial toll at 30 dead.At least 57 people were killed in an airstrike on an IS-run jail in the Euphrates River Valley on Monday. Activists said that airstrike was carried out by the U.S.-led coalition. The coalition said it was looking into the reports.Turkey's military meanwhile said it returned fire after an attack by Syrian Kurdish forces.A statement Wednesday said the People's Protection Units, or YPG, fired on Turkish territory overnight with anti-aircraft weapons from Syria's Afrin region. Turkish artillery units returned fire, destroying the "detected targets."The YPG is the main component of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a U.S.-backed militia that is battling the Islamic State group in the extremists' de facto capital, Raqqa. Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdish insurgency raging in its southeast.Turkey was angered by a U.S. decision last month to arm the Syrian Kurds, fearing the weapons will end up in the hands of Kurdish rebels in Turkey.The Associated Press.

Philippines says beheaded civilians found in rebel-held town-[Reuters]-By Kanupriya Kapoor-YAHOONEWS-June 28, 2017

MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - Five decapitated civilians were found in a Philippine city occupied by Islamist rebels on Wednesday, the military said, warning the number of residents killed by rebel "atrocities" could rise sharply as troops retake more ground.The discovery of the five victims among 17 bodies retrieved would be the first evidence that civilians trapped in besieged Marawi City have been decapitated during the five-week stand by militants loyal to the Islamic State group, as some who escaped the city have previously reported.Some 71 security forces and 299 militants have been killed and 246,000 people displaced in the conflict, which erupted after a failed attempt on May 23 to arrest a Filipino militant commander backed by Islamic State's leadership.President Rodrigo Duterte promised to destroy the militants in Marawi and said the Philippines was now dealing with "a very dangerous situation" due to young Muslims inspired by the "mass insanity" of Islamic State."All they do is just to kill and destroy, and killing in a most brutal way," he said at an event where he received hundreds of sniper and assault rifles donated by China to help the military campaign in Marawi."They enjoy decapitating people in front of cameras. They have to be dealt with, with the same ferocity but not the brutality," he said.The information about the beheadings came via a text message to reporters from Lieutenant Colonel Emmanuel Garcia of the Western Mindanao Command. Garcia did not respond to repeated requests for details.A civilian rescue worker, Abdul Azis Lomondot, told Reuters body parts were found, but with "no proof of beheading".Military spokesman Jo-Ar Herrera said bodies were found separately in two groups, of 12 and five, but he was unable to confirm if the five were beheaded.The battle entered its 36th day on Wednesday, with intense gunfights and bombing in the heart of the town and black-clad fighters seen from afar running between buildings as explosions rang out.The rebels' hold on Marawi, while incurring the full force of a military for years trained by its U.S. counterparts, has much of the region on edge, concerned that Islamic State's influence may run deeper than thought.Those fears are also being felt in Malaysia and Indonesia, whose nationals are among the Maute group of rebels fighting in Marawi, suggesting the group may have built a cross-border network that has gone largely undetected.-RISING TOLL-Military spokesman Restituto Padilla earlier said it was likely that many civilians had been killed and the death toll - at 27 before the latest 17 were announced - was only what the authorities could confirm independently and escapees had reported many in the area of fighting."(It) may increase significantly," Padilla told reporters. "There have been a significant number that have been seen."Padilla said the cause of all of those deaths would be "atrocities committed by the terrorists".Among those atrocities, the army says, have been residents being forced to loot homes, take up arms or become sex slaves.Videos have appeared this month on the website of Islamic State's Amaq news agency and its social media channels of hostages in Marawi pleading for their lives, saying they would be beheaded if air strikes were not stopped. Clips have also appeared of kneeling captives, shot in the head from behind.Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.The military has so far been reluctant to discuss the possibility that the real impact of the fighting on civilians could be far more severe than has been reported.It has played down the impact of daily air strikes and mortar assaults aimed at rebel sniper positions, which have reduced areas of the lakeside town to rubble and alarmed people stuck there, some of whom have said the shelling was a bigger threat than the militants.Military spokesman Padilla said troops needed more time to finish what was a tricky mission, complicated by trapped civilians, hostages and booby traps.(For a graphic on battle for Marawi, click http://tmsnrt.rs/2sqmHDf)(Additional reporting by Neil Jerome Morales in MANILA; Writing by Martin Petty)

          Sommario Europeo: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, 30 Giu - 06:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.

          Sex and Gender in Sports: Part Two   
In my previous article I considered the distinction between male and female athletes competing in top competitions such as the Olympic games. Right at the nub of the issue is whether women with naturally high levels of testosterone have an unfair advantage against women with lower, or "normal" levels of testosterone.

But what about transgender or transsexual athletes? Those born in an apparently ordinary male body, who legitimately transition to the female sex? What happens to them?

Renee Richards
Renee Richards is the first example I have to offer. Born Richard Raskind, the child of two doctors, Richards was a successful male athlete, and also obtained a medical degree. In 1975 (which puts her age at 41), she pursued a career as a professional woman tennis player. However, in 1976 the US Tennis Association had introduced Barr body testing (a type of genetic testing) that year. Richards refused to take the test, and was therefore banned from top tennis tournaments, the US Open, Wimbledon and the Italian Open that year.

Richards took the US Tennis Association to court, alleging discrimination by gender in violation of her human rights. She won her case, and was allowed to play in the 1977 US Open tournament.

Richards' tennis career was quite short-lived, and she retired from professional tennis in 1981, just 4 years later, and returned to medical practice in ophthalmology.

Richards' case provoked considerable discussion. Official sports governing bodies were very uncomfortable. According to Wikipedia, the US Olympic Committee stated:
IOC: There is competitive advantage for a male who has undergone a sex change surgery as a result of physical training and development as a male.
And indeed, it's hard to argue with that viewpoint. But in addition to official perplexity, Richards faced consternation from the general public too. My correspondent Rhonda wrote "I recall it being said that Renee had an advantage because she competed in a new category, unique to her: 'Mixed Singles'." And even her own fellow athletes were unhappy: when Richards was allowed to play as a woman, 25 of 32 competitors promptly withdrew in protest from the Tennis Week Open.

In this article describing her life and career, written by Emily Bazelon, Richards herself comments on her status as a transsexual athlete. I quote the final paragraph in its entirety:
Bazelon: The science of distinguishing men from women in sports remains unsettled. And Richards has come to believe that her past as a man did provide her advantages over competitors. “Having lived for the past 30 years, I know if I’d had surgery at the age of 22, and then at 24 went on the tour, no genetic woman in the world would have been able to come close to me. And so I’ve reconsidered my opinion.” She adds, “There is one thing that a transsexual woman unfortunately cannot expect to be allowed to do, and that is to play professional sports in her chosen field. She can get married, live as woman, do all of those other things, and no one should ever be allowed to take them away from her. But this limitation—that’s just life. I know because I lived it.”
Michelle Dumaresq
Wikipedia has a list of transgender athletes, both female-to-male and male-to-female. There are, unsurprisingly, few Olympic type events, though there are cyclists, such as Canadian mountain biker Michelle Dumaresq, and fighters, such as American mixed martial artist Fallon Fox. Caitlyn Jenner is of course mentioned.

In 2003, the International Olympic Committee drew up regulations to cover transsexual athletes. To me, at first glance, they seem pretty reasonable:
  1. The athlete must have undergone sexual reassignment surgery, including changes to the external genitalia and gonads.
  2. The athlete must be legally recognised in their desired sex.
  3. The athlete must undergo hormone therapy for at least two years.
These guidelines were modified in 2015, due to recognition that it might not be acceptable to require surgery in otherwise healthy people, and that some countries refuse to grant legal recognition to people who change sex. Therefore, the regulations were changed. The requirement for surgery was dropped, and the only stipulation now requires that the athlete's testosterone level be under 10 nmol/l. (See my previous article for why this might be problematic).

Chris Mosier
As for these games, the UK Daily Mail reported that two unnamed male-to-female athletes were considered for inclusion in Team GB to compete in Rio, but the Internet has been silent about whether they managed it. Meanwhile, Chris Mosier competed as a triathlete for team USA. As a female-to-male, Mosier needs to take testosterone, though a Therapeutic Use Exemption means it's acceptable. The Wikipedia article states that "two closeted transgender athletes competed" at Rio.

The first transgendered sportsperson I recall ever hearing about was Mianne Bagger, a professional golfer from Denmark. According to Wikipedia, Bagger was only the second high-profile transgendered athlete who won recognition from sports' governing bodies to compete in their desired sex, after Renee Richards. A 2004 article from the Guardian newspaper reports that Bagger experienced a slightly warmer welcome from her fellow professionals than Richards did. Subsequently, Lana Lawless sued the Ladies' Professional Golf Association in 2010, which at that time was clinging to a rule that women golfers were required to have been born female. In 2014 another doctor, Bobbi Lancaster, was permitted to play in an LPGA tournament, and this article describes her as the first transgender woman golfer to compete in such a tournament.

So much for the professional athletes. What about those lower down? Una over at TransasCity has produced a couple of relevant articles, and you can read them here and here.

Judit Polgar
I want to close this double article with a shout out to one of my heroes, Judit Polgar. Polgar, 40, is the strongest female chess player in history. The youngest of three sisters, the Polgar girls were intensively coached in chess by their polymath father, Laszlo Polgar, who believed that "geniuses are made, not born".

Everybody "knows" girls aren't as good at chess as boys. Even FIDE, the world chess governing body, awards separate women's titles. The Woman Grandmaster (WGM) title is easier to attain than the Grandmaster (GM) title. But try telling that to the Polgar sisters. They refused to compete in woman-only tournaments, from the beginning, bringing them into some conflict with the Hungarian Chess Federation. However, the Polgars persisted. Laszlo wrote:
Laszlo Polgar: Women are able to achieve results similar, in fields of intellectual activities, to that of men. Chess is a form of intellectual activity, so this applies to chess. Accordingly, we reject any kind of discrimination in this respect.
And his daughters went on to prove him right. Judit achieved an astonishing series of accomplishments: she achieved the rank of full Grandmaster (not WGM) at the age of 15, then the youngest person ever to have done so. She was ranked 55th best player in the world at age 12. She is the first ever (and so far, only) woman to achieve an Elo rating of greater than 2700, and she peaked at number 8 in the world in 2005. Now, of course, FIDE allows players of both sexes to compete in tournaments, but of 1441 GMs in the world, only 31 are currently women, so the women do have some catching up to do. And I bet nobody even bothers about their testosterone levels.

I wonder how much chess is like golf. In most Olympic sports, muscle mass, lung capacity and other physical measures of fitness really matter. In that circumstance, one could say that the extra physical size of someone born male could offer an advantage if they transitioned. However, in golf, this is less obvious, and Mianne Bagger has insisted that she has no physical advantage from being born male.

In chess, of course, physical fitness is irrelevant, provided you can deal with the stress of the games and tournaments. I believe that the low number of female grandmasters is not a reflection of women's ability to play chess, but a reflection of how few women take up chess seriously. I did a quick Google search for transgender chess players, but didn't turn anything up. As always, comments are welcome. Meanwhile, whether it's golf, chess, cycling or whatever, keep doing your thing.

South Park: Phone Destroyer preview - Hands on with Ubisoft's new card battler South Park: Phone Destroyer soft launched a little over a week ago now, providing South Park fans in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway with their ideal card battler.

I've put a little time into the game's early stages for the benefit of those of you who aren't living in Nordic bliss.

Being only casually familiar with both South Park and CCGs, I went into the game with pretty neutral expectations, but came away quietly impressed.

South Park: The CCG

The name South Park: Phone Destroyer might hint at a mindless tapper or some kind of action game, but it's actually a bright and breezy (though definitely not kid-friendly) casual card battler, but with live automated battles.

You must assemble a deck of cards from random loot drops and campaign success, then continue to modify those cards using the game's various currencies and consumables.

          Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag   

Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag

Date: 1. juli 2017

Today we celebrate pioneering British aviator  Amy Johnson. The first woman to fly solo from England to Australia, Johnson became a symbol of perseverance and a feminist inspiration around the world.

Breaking into the male-dominated field of aviation proved difficult but not impossible for Johnson. Though she was not a naturally gifted pilot, Amy possessed an unshakable resilience that inspired future generations. In fact, before setting her first world flying record in 1930, Amy’s strong determination and drive qualified her to be the first British-trained woman ground engineer — for a brief time, she was the only woman in the world to hold that job title.

That sort of resume does not go unnoticed. To honor the homecoming of her record-breaking solo flight from England to Australia, Amy was welcomed back with the tune “Amy, Wonderful Amy” — a hit song recorded by Jack Hylton and His Orchestra.

Johnson quickly joined the ranks of other top female aviators, such as Amelia Earhart and Florence “Pancho” Barnes, by breaking several more world records — including her husband’s record for the fastest solo flight from London to Cape Town. Throughout her career, she made headlines as the “British Girl Lindbergh”and “The Long Girl Flyer.” She later shifted her solo flying adventures into a stint as First Officer in the Air Transport Auxiliary during the Second World War.

To celebrate the spirit of this fearless flyer, today’s Doodle reminds us that there is no challenge too high or too far. Happy 114th birthday, "wonderful Amy"!

          EX EYE (FEAT. COLIN STETSON) STREAM DEBUT ALBUM, ON TOUR ON THE WEST COAST NOW   



“… Ex Eye can forge new expressions at the crossroads of jazz and metal.” - Pitchfork
"...take a dive into what operatic, larger-than-life arrangements the complete album has to offer." - Stereogum
"...extended, sprawling compositional approach that lends it an overall massive feel. The songwriting has depth and emotion, but it’s difficult to encapsulate in any one simple way. Is it heavy? Absolutely. But beyond that trying to squeeze it into any one category is futile. This is wild stuff." - Treble


EX EYE makes music of power, control, motion and intention; music composed with precise, clockwork intricacy and ecstatic abandon. It is hard, heavy music – aggressive, cathartic, and thrilling. The instruments fluidly exchange roles; melody, harmony, riff, engine, anchor, fuel. 

Gathered at renowned, experimental saxophonist Colin Stetson’s behest in 2016, EX EYE consist of Stetson along with Greg Fox (Liturgy) on drums, Shahzad Ismaily (Secret Chiefs 3, Ceramic Dog) on synths and Toby Summerfield on guitar. Upon their formation, the group appeared at a series of prestigious festivals including Roskilde Festival (Denmark), Red Bull Music Academy (Montreal), CTM Festival (Germany), and Eaux Claires Fest (US).  Their otherworldly live performances and hypnotically heavy rehearsal demos led to their signing with Relapse Records.

Recorded live at EX EYE member Shahzad Ismaily's Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn, NY (Blonde Redhead, Damien Rice, Okkervil River, Son Lux, Pussy Riot), the debut showcases a band that is without question the sum of its parts, as each player contributes not only their own particular technical prowess and expertise but also their signature compositional character. EX EYE make incredibly complex yet beautifully dramatic and emotive music which eclipses usual expectation of style or genre and takes the listener on a cathartic, thrilling journey to total transcendence.  Listen to the album in its entirety today via Stereogum.

EX EYE is on tour now, playing Sled Island (Calgary) today then hitting Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles to follow.  More live performances confirmed on the East Coast in August - check out all tour dates below.

EX EYE is: Colin Stetson - Alto & Bass Saxophones Greg Fox - Drums Shahzad Ismaily - Synths Toby Summerfield - Guitar

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - A member of Sweden's Parliament for the anti-immigration and euroskeptic Sweden Democrats has been convicted for hitting a man in the face outside a nightclub in Stockholm last year. The Stockholm District Court says it handed down a 38,400-kronor fine to Kent Ekeroth for hitting a now-21-year-old man in the face on Nov. 24. The court said Wednesday it didn't believe Ekeroth's claim that he acted in self-defense, citing witnesses who said he had not been assaulted and CCTV footage from outside the Solidaritet club.

7 odd July 4th facts Benjamin Franklin proposed the turkey as the national bird but was overruled by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who recommended the bald eagle. In 2012, fireworks sales by wholesalers totaled $482.6 million and sales by retailers totaled $368.6. In 2016, the United States imported $5.4 million in American flags. Americans consume around 155 million hot dogs on the Fourth of July each year. They also spend $92 million on chips, $167.5 million on watermelon, and $341.4 million on beer. Over 11,000 people will visit ERs this Independence Day, due to firework-related injuries. Fireworks have been a major part of Fourth of July since the earliest celebrations. In 1884, miners blew up the post office in Swan, Colorado, because it wasn't supplied with fireworks. Countries like Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal and Sweden, celebrate the Fourth of July because many of their citizens moved to the US or simply to attract American tourists.

          INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW   
International trade law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries; However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right. This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments has become part of the world trade, as members of the "World Trade Organization" (WTO). Whereas "International Commercial Law" deals with transactions between companies and individuals. Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world;(Such as the University of Allameh Tabatabaee in Iran).

International trade law should be distinguished from the broader field of international economic law. The latter could be said to encompass not only WTO law, but also law governing the international monetary system and currency regulation, as well as the law of international development.

The body of rules for transnational trade in the 21st century derives from medieval commercial laws called the lex mercatoria and lex maritima — respectively, "the law for merchants on land" and "the law for merchants on sea." Modern trade law (extending beyond bilateral treaties) began shortly after the Second World War, with the negotiation of a multilateral treaty to deal with trade in goods: the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).

International trade law is based on theories of economic liberalism developed in Europe and later the United States from the 18th century onwards.
In 1995, the World Trade Organization, a formal international organization to regulate trade, was established. It is the most important development in the history of international trade law.

The purposes and structure of the organization is governed by the Agreement Establishing The World Trade Organization, also known as the "Marrakesh Agreement". It does not specify the actual rules that govern international trade in specific areas. These are found in separate treaties, annexed to the Marrakesh Agreement.
Since there are no international governing judges (2004) the means of dispute resolution is determined by jurisdiction. Each individual country hears cases that are brought before them. Governments choose to be party to a dispute. And private citizens determine jurisdiction by the Forum Clause in their contract.

Besides forum, another factor in international disputes is the rate of exchange. With currency fluctuation ascending and descending over years, a lack of Commerce Clause can jeopardize trade between parties when one party becomes unjustly enriched through natural market fluctuations. By listing the rate of exchange expected over the contract life, parties can provide for changes in the market through reassessment of contract or division of exchange rate fluctuations.

No European Union (EU) member state has ever chosen to withdraw from the European Union, though some dependent territories or semi-autonomous areas have left. Of these, only Greenland has explicitly voted to leave, departing from the EU's predecessor, the European Economic Community, in 1985. The only member state to hold a national referendum on withdrawal was the United Kingdom in 1975, when 67.2% of those voting voted to remain in the Community.

Before the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force on 1 December 2009 no provision in the Treaties or Law of the European Union outlined the ability of a state to voluntarily withdraw from the EU. The European Constitution did propose such a provision and, after the failure to ratify the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, that provision was then included in the Lisbon Treaty.

The Treaty introduces an exit clause for members who wish to withdraw from the Union. Under Article 50, a Member State would notify the European Council of its intention to secede from the Union and a withdrawal agreement would be negotiated between the Union and that State. The Treaties would cease to be applicable to that State from the date of the agreement or, failing that, within two years of the notification unless the State and the Council both agree to extend this period. The agreement is concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council and shall set out the arrangements for withdrawal, including a framework for the State's future relationship with the Union. The agreement is to be approved by the Council, acting by qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament. A former Member State seeking to rejoin the European Union would be subject to the same conditions as any other applicant country.

Article 311a, introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon allows the status of French, Dutch and Danish overseas territories to be changed more easily, by no longer requiring a full treaty revision. Instead, the European Council may, on the initiative of the member state concerned, change the status of an overseas country or territory (OCT) to an outermost region (OMR) or vice versa.

Greenland is the only territory to have chosen to leave the EU or its predecessors without also seceding from a member state. It initially voted against joining the EEC when Denmark joined in 1973, but because Denmark as a whole voted to join, Greenland, as a part of Denmark, joined too. When home rule for Greenland began in 1979, it held a new referendum and voted to leave the EEC. After wrangling over fishing rights the territory left the EEC in 1985, but remains subject to the EU treaties through the EU Association of Overseas Countries and Territories. This was permitted by the Greenland Treaty, a special treaty signed in 1984 to allow its withdrawal.

By precedent, then, if a country wanted to withdraw from the EU it probably could, but special treaties and conditions would need to be agreed on. This is because of pre-existing commitments that any member state would have towards the EU and its fellow members.

Some former territories of European Union members have left the EU when they gained independence from their ruling country. The 1962 secession of French Algeria, which was an integral part of France and hence of the then-European Communities, was the only such occasion on which a territory subject to the Treaty of Rome has seceded. Most other territories - Hong Kong and Macau - were not classed as part of the EU and EC laws were not in force in these countries.

As of January 2010, there are no countries positioning themselves to withdraw from the EU, but there are numerous political movements campaigning for withdrawal. Although usually minor parties, in the more eurosceptic states of the EU there are the occasional electoral victories. In the UK, the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) campaigns for British withdrawal, achieving third place in the UK during the 2004 European elections and second place in the 2009 European elections – that time gaining the same number of seats as the governing Labour Party. Polls show that support for withdrawal going from 9% to 55%, depending on the wording of the question. In October 2009 a Daily Mail survey revealed that 58% of those polled wanted a referendum on the United Kingdom's membership of the EU. As of January 2010, the Liberal Democrats are the only major party in the UK parliament advocating a referendum on the EU membership, although they would be supporting a positive vote and presented it as an alternative to one on the Lisbon Treaty.

Farewell to Westminster — my friend is gone
The bands that held me once so close — no more.
Shivering at morn no more I wait for John [1] 
At stated hour to send me to my lore.
Farewell the seat of Pedantry & Pride
Where well-wiggd Folly fills the elbowd chair
Where stern Intolerance glows with monstrous stare
Wrapt in himself & scorns the world beside
Farewell to impositions & the rod
Farewell Constraint & Shame — Falshood farewell & Dodd

2

When Persecution erst upreard the cry
Devils & Doctors set their wits gainst me
When Bishops sage cried out on Blasphemy
And met in council issued their decree.
When stern Injustice calld the aid of Law
Vincent stoopd down with league with Egerton
And Fraud & Force bid luckless me be gone
Whilst Prosecution strove to strike with awe
Poor I could do no more than grow resignd
I went — but left my friends my better part behind

3

Those friends are gone — broke is the scanty chain
That linkd me where I learnt to suffer wrong.
Combe Lamb — depart & you alone remain
A little while — then quit the unheeded throng
Farewell to Westminster. yet still my soul
Parts with reluctance from the scene belovd
Where every bliss of social joy I provd
Where wont the weeks & months unheeded roll
Where oft Injustice’ power I wont defy
For Dodd was oft unjust & oft rebellious I.

4

The stolen walk — the secret porter pot
The exercise for supper laid aside
The pudding with such care & trouble got
Made with such pains & eaten with such pride —
The noise I us’d to make but never hear
The wise precaution of the bolted door
These days are past — these occupations oer
Absent far absent every scene so dear
Early I rise nor wish to go astray
When least commanded still the most disposd to obey.

5

Soon shall we meet — ere yet with beard all hoar
Gemmd with the crystals of the chilly year
Old February comes with snow white oer
And eye distilling down the humid tear —
To other seats of classic lore we go
Seats that high-mounted on her mouldring throne
Mist clad Antiquity still calls her own
More liberal then are these? more wise? ah no
For Precedent his chains oer Genius flings
And Pedantry binds down & Custom clips his wings

6

Long while in monkish cowl & amis clad
Had Ignorance maintaind despotic reign
Barbarian Pride & brutal Courage bad
And Slaughters ills disgracd all England plain
True the bold Minstrel felt the kindling glow
Of native genius full pervade his frame
Wild Inspiration caught the glorious flame
And bid in Valors praise the numbers flow
Amid the trophied hall he struck the lyre
But with the parent Bard the unwritten strains expire.

7

The savage forests of the fruitful North
Pregnant with future Empires destind seeds
Pourd oer this isle her pirate offspring forth.
Blood marks its path as on the storm proceeds.
The sacred abbeys walls no more reverd
Reverd no more the heavn-devoted maid
Heaven listless sees nor lends the savior aid
Destruction round with reeking jaws appeard
Aloft supreme the rav’nous raven flies
Nor England dares resist — for who opposed dies.

8

Oddune [2]  alone amid the sedge grown isle
Graspt in despair his blood-yrusted arms
He mournd the monarch lost nor knew the while
Where hid an Alfred [3]  from the wars alarms —
But weak the covering of the peasants dress
The rustic labor or the smoaky cot
His friends his subjects are not yet forgot
Nor feels he for his country’s woes the less
He grasps the harp the hostile tents among
With piercing eye he goes & pours the tide of song.

9

Stript of the covering — stern the King appears —
Flows thro the festive camp the sanguine flood
The proud Dane dies ere kno conscious why he fears
Drenchd are the Ravens plumes in Danish blood
The feast of Slaughter & of Fame is oer
And Alfred turns to more ennobling deeds
His daring pland the glorious plan areeds
And bids the fabric rise of future lore
On Isis’ banks he bids the pile arise
And (how unlike a King!) wishd all his subjects wise.

10

Great Alfred died — & Ignorance again
Seizd on unhappy Albions state still faint
Beneath the lustful Edgars [4]  pious reign
And him whom Apathy enrolld a saint. [5] 
The Bastard [6]  comes — the bold bad man succeeds
Stern browd Oppression stretchd his iron sway
The chieftains fall the vassal race obey
Science but languishes when Freedom bleeds
Oer Europe spreads Devotions mad alarms
The frantic Hermit [7]  calls & Europe flies to arms

11

Long time had Oxford slowly drudgd along
Oer holy fathers & the comments wise
And schoolmen livd in leading others wrong
And Popes bid Reason see with Peters eyes
To rear the second seat of mystic lore
When Baliol [8]  to increase her number came
Baliol disgracd by kinsmans servile name
Who stoopt a tyrant conqueror to adore
But why my friend need we for founders care
What matters me his race when I shall soon be there.

12

Soon soon shall I be there — nor there with me
Social my friends shall pass each live long hour
No more as erst our studies shall agree
Thus burst by iron hand of lawful power.
Thee — Wolseys fabric proud [9]  receives — a fane
Of mighty magnitude & pompous state
That loud exclaims with Fortunes smile elate
Scowling contemptuous — ‘hence away profane.
Yet tho’ rejected still must I revere
The spot where many a friend inhabits still so dear.

13

If in this seat of Learning still we find
Pedantic Precedent assert his reign
And tame Conformity enslave the mind
How useless Science — Knowledge too how vain!
Yet there will Prejudice enslave the man —
Sits the old Dean & give the formal nod
That stern rejects who durst despise the rod
And whom the Doctor stild Republican.
Republican! yet things like these can seed
Plato’s dreams divine — a Brutus [10]  glorious deed

14

Een at the word I feel my soul expand
The fire of Freedom kindles every vien —
Ah why should Fortune thus restrain my hand
Why stern Necessity thus bind thy chain?
Man must submit to heavn — to heavn alone.
Whilst then Oppression shrinks with wild dismay
Whilst France & Freedom urge their fiery way
And Terror hover round each tyrant throne
Collins — at Oxford must we wait serene
And view with anxious eyes the progress of the scene.

15

Ah look my friend — behold the black robd crew
That stalk thro Oxfords street in well wiggd pride
With all their Orthodoxity in view
For Folly & Submission dignified.
List to the solemn sad sepulchral sound
Breathd from the pulpit on each public day
That sends the hearers half awake away —
Where are the mighty fruits of Oxford found
Lie they in dull declamatory lore
As pious fathers breathd in stupid zeal before?

16

Turn now your eyes where oer Jamappes [11]  red plain
The Ravens raise the dismal yell of joy
Chartres — Montpensier [12]  strewd the field with slain
Oppressions chieftains fell before a boy —
Yet did not antique college boast his name
Yet did not Customs chains avail to bind
Or Doctord boobies strive to dull his mind
A woman traind them in the path of Fame
A Woman taught them every ill to face
To fight in Freedoms cause — to adorn the human race!

17

Brulerck [13]  how must thy soul those scenes despise
Where mouldering colleges in frowning mien
Appear to chill the soul & frown it wise.
Where Learning’s fabrics wide oerspread the scene
Yet where true Learning banishd far away
Mid musty volumes Pedantry elate
Forbids the banishd Muse approach her state
Prohibits Reformation near her sway,
Where Athanasius [14]  & the Right Divine
With thousand follies more support her mouldering shrine.

18

But Reason dawns around — her morning ray
Breaks forth illuming from the clouds of night
The opposing shadows slowly melt away
And Hope looks on to unremitted light.
Science expands her plumes — her eagle eye
Fearless pervades the mists that round await
Where sits her rival in collegiate state
Before her glance the mantle fades away
Eer long shall Precedents false arts be vain
And universal Freedom claim his equal reign.

19

Already France has reard the immortal pile
Where Ferneys sage [15]  is husht in deaths repose —
Where laid no more amid the unhallowed isle
The MAN of NATURE rests from all his woes —
Bend down from heaven Rousseau thy laurelld head
Survey with ecstasy this glorious sight
The sparks of Freedom fire the increasing light
Oer Europe see the glowing flames are spread
See Reason spurn the stately throne of Pride
Thy own Emilius see in Chartres verified.

20

Come then my friend — together let us go
And drag awhile the stern pedantic chain
Creep in the beaten tract of science slow
And toil contented in the falling reign.
The hour will come these chains will be no more
Meantime together let us pass the day
Together with the hastening hours to stay
Whilst we peruse the sages volumes oer
In spite of Prejudice thus learn to see
And study Natures book — despite of Pedantry.

Parvum in Multo. [16] 

———

Sunday morning.

I deferrd answering your last letter in daily expectation of receiving that from Oxford whither I wrote requesting Wynn to forward it. he had left the place & mine did not reach him till it had followed him all over the country. the grand reflections of the first Historian — the philosophic Tacitus [17]  are not totally despised even in the University — I enquired at Baliol what were the studies & received for answer the present were the Alcibiades of Plato [18]  the annals of Tacitus & the elements of Euclid [19]  — it appears almost miraculous (if in this period anything is to be wondered that) that such monastic institutions, which still in spite of reformation bear so many marks of the old leaven should maintain their ground — look indeed at the whole system of modern education from the nursery to the college & tell me if any thing can be supposed more contradictory to Reason & to Nature? we have seen what are the advantages of public education perhaps it has been my lot to observe more in the boarding houses — you have seen the effects & I have beheld the causes — morality is not conceived essential at present in the eye of fashion — that of Reason will look upon it as the basis of every virtue & every accomplishment — what however can be more destructive than the contagion of bad example? nemo repente fuit turpissimus [20]  — when we once have learnt to behold vice without abhorrence we soon practise it with indifference. public schools (say their advocates) give a knowledge of the world; but it would nor require more argument than these wise men of the world are masters of, to persuade me that driving a hackney coach drinking two bottles & frequenting “the mercenary retailers of iniquity” [21]  constitute that knowledge. & yet what other modern knowledge is to be attained at Westminster [MS torn] the studies pursued there are of the manners of the dead — with their customs & language we are expected [MS torn] be intimate — improvement in our native tongue you know Vincent wishes not. public schools undoubtedly a[MS torn] excellently adapted to such hopeful heirs as are destined to possess ample fortunes & consequently st[MS torn] in no need of science. yet severely as I really reprobate them, many many happy hours have I passed in Deans Yard & shall ever look back to the two last years without experiencing any unpleasing sensation from the retrospect. the present mode of private education will be equally unable to bear investigat[MS torn] it will be perhaps more destructive if meant to end with the University — perhaps no one point has been less understood — it is more to be wondered at that so many are good than that the number of the profligate is so great. whether or not man has the stain of original sin I leave to theologians & metaphysicians. that education tends to give it him I do not even doubt. Rousseaus plan is too visionary — it supposes such unremitted attention in the tutor & such natural virtue in the pupil that I doubt its practability of this however when we read Emilius [22]  (an occupation I look forward to with pleasure) we will freely determine. Madame Brulerck (late Genlis) appears to me to have struck out a path equally new & excellent — the Emilius of L Homme de la Nature existed only in his imagination. but the two sons of Phillipe Egalitè are living proofs of her capacity.  [23] 

every booby will answer an attempt at reformation with this is very well in theory — but how are we rest contented of its impractability without every giving it a trial — <a> experience is the only certain guide & Experience tells us that modern education is bad.

on Friday next I depart for Oxford & shall perhaps be settled before you come. if however upon your arrival you will give me one line at Baliol I will be with you immediately & be of what service I can.

I shall write to Bedford before I go relative to my books — I have spent eleven years already at various school & at this hour know not the languages with your accuracy — your example here is a proof of Rousseaus judgement. perhaps I may waste as many years more at college — thus goes the prime of life in attaining knowledge which will not serve to protract its end — we toil on & at last find on a death bed how ignorant we are of every thing. what is God said Hiero [24]  you know the answer.

I have read all Juvenal [25]  with pleasure it is a manly stile more adapted to me than the sly sarcasms of Horace [26]  but I have no time for more church is ready & I go to hear a sermon very probably about right divine sedition & impiety which last are always linked together in the pulpit.

yrs sincerely

Robert Southey.

Philippe Egalite: Louis-Philippe-Joseph, Duc d’Orleans (1747–1793), a distant cousin of Louis XVI (1754–1793; reigned 1774–1792) and early supporter of the French Revolution. Elected as a deputy to the National Convention in September 1792, he voted for the execution of the king. In 1793, after his son (the Duc de Chartres) defected to the Austrians, he was imprisoned and executed during the Terror. BACK

[24] Hiero I, tyrant of Syracuse (478–467 BC), asked the poet, Simonides of Ceos (556–468 BC), ‘What is god?’ and Simonides finally replied ‘The longer I think on the subject the farther I seem from making it out’. BACK

          : Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, 06 30 - 06:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.


          Comment on Don’t waste your time documenting processes, just automate them by kswenson   
Theo, it can even be worse. You speak about the wasted effort, but there was a study done in Denmark that shows that some public works projects that were planned in advance sometimes were actually executed worse than projects with less planning in advance. This evidence supports the idea that sometimes you can do too much planning, too much design work. What was happening was that by planning too much up front, they committed the project to a course that was then later very hard to change, even when it was apparent there was a better way to do it. This is precisely the agility point you make. I do not mean to go to the extreme that you should never plan project. Instead, I mean only to say that there exist cases where you should only plan to a certain level, and leave the details to be worked out later!

          Washington Capitals: 2016-2017 By the Tens -- Forwards: Lars Eller   
Lars Eller

“Consistency is the foundation of virtue.”
-- Francis Bacon


If consistency can be spectacular, Lars Eller is a spectacular player.  Consider his scoring lines over the last six seasons coming into the 2016-2017 season:


If Caps fans there thinking “WYSIWYG” with Eller ("what you see is what you get"), the first half of the season might have left those same fans asking “WTF?”  Eller had the best individual shot attempt share of any forward on the club appearing in more than a dozen games (57.81 percent; numbers from NHL.com).  Among those 13 forwards he had the seventh highest average ice time, just over 14 minutes per game.  But Eller was stuck at three goals and seven points, and his minus-1 rating was tied for worst in the group.  In those first 40 games, of which Eller appeared in 39, his game was a case of “efficiency” without “effectiveness,” at least as far as his offensive numbers were concerned.

Then…there was an empty net goal.  Game 41 against the Pittsburgh Penguins (Eller’s 40th of the season) was dominated by Alex Ovechkin reaching the 1,000 point mark for his career with a goal 35 seconds into the contest.  Later, the Caps took a 4-2 lead into the final minute of play, and one of the oddest goals you will ever see was authored by Eller…



Off a stick, off a helmet, and into an empty net.  And with that, Eller started off on a run over his next two ten-game splits in which he was 7-7-14, plus-16.  He tied for the league lead in plus-minus over that period.  In fact, it was a teammate with which he was tied (Brett Connolly), and the other member of that third line – Andre Burakovsky – was third over that period with a plus-13.  Eller and his cohorts combined for 20 goals over those 20 games (it might have been more, but Burakovsky missed five games in that period), almost a quarter of the 86 goals the Caps scored over those 20 games in posting a 15-3-2 record.  It was, arguably, Eller’s, his line’s, and the Caps’ best stretch of hockey of the season.

It was a brief moment in the sunshine for Eller, who spent his last two ten-game splits as he did his first four, with one notable exception.  As he did in those first four ten-game splits, he struggled to put up points, going 2-2-4, the fewest points among the 12 forwards playing in at least ten games in that finishing run.  But he also struggled in his possession numbers, his 50.71 shot attempt percentage last among that same group of 12 forwards.

Fearless’ Take… Secondary scoring matters.  Folks keep pounding on this point, but Eller’s numbers reflect that.  The Caps were 8-1-2 in games in which he had a goal, 17-2-3 in games in which he had a point.  Eller was another one of those Caps who performed consistently at home or on the road, going 6-5-11, plus-8, in 41 games at Verizon Center and 6-8-14, plus-7, in 40 games on the road.  He and T.J. Oshie were the only Capitals this season to record at least one even strength, power play, and shorthanded point.

Cheerless’ Take… Eller had a couple of other odd splits.  In 23 games against the other seven teams in the East reaching the postseason, he was 5-5-10, plus-10.  That is an 18-18-36, plus-36 pace per 82 games.  Against the West, it was an entirely different matter.  In 16 games against the eight teams making the playoffs, Eller was 0-3-3, minus-1, an 0-15-15, minus-5 pace. 

Odd Eller Fact… 2016-2017 was the first season since his rookie year that he did not record a shootout attempt.  Coming into this season (and ending it), Eller was 6-for-17 (35.3 percent, tied for 88th among 242 players recording at least ten shots since 2010-2011) with three game-deciding goals in his career in the trick shot competition.

Game to remember… February 22nd vs. Philadelphia

Sometimes, the statistics don’t matter.  That might have been the case for Lars Eller on a night back in February, a “Wednesday Night Rivalry” game against the Philadelphia Flyers broadcast nationally.  The Caps were wrapping up a three-game road trip on which they lost their first two games, in Detroit (in a Gimmick) and at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers.  For the Caps, it was a good night, their short losing streak coming to an end in a 4-1 win at Wells Fargo Center.  For Eller, it was a quiet night.  He was on the ice for a power play goal by Evgeny Kuznetsov, but otherwise he managed just two shots on goal and lost seven of 11 draws with no points in 14 minutes of ice time.  However, it was Eller’s 500th NHL game, and for the highest-drafted player ever born and trained in Denmark when he was taken 13th overall by the St. Louis Blues in 2007 (Mikkel Boedker was taken eighth-overall the following season), it was still a night to remember.

Game to forget… March 28th vs. Minnesota

And sometimes the statistics don’t matter in an entirely different way.  When the Caps took to the road to head to Minnesota in late March, they were carrying with them a four-game winning streak.  Lars Eller was lugging a lot more baggage – a 12-game streak without a point.  Getting on the road seemed as if it might be just the tonic to break that streak.  Fortunately for the Caps, they broke out to an early lead, took it into the third period, then posted a goal to make it 4-2 with less than eight minutes left in the contest.  The Wild scored a pair of goals in the last five minutes to tie the game and threatened to snatch victory from the Caps’ hands.  However, T.J. Oshie scored less than two minutes into overtime to give the Caps the win.  For Eller, it was a thoroughly forgettable game.  He was on the ice for all four Wild goals, took a delay of game penalty, and skated just 10 even strength minutes without a point.  It was the sort of game to forget, put behind you, and move on to the next one (which, apparently, he did, since he scored a goal in Colorado in the next contest to break a 21-game streak without one). 

Postseason: 13 games, 0-5-5, minus-2, 59.56 CF% at 5-on-5

Lars Eller scored a goal against the Ottawa Senators in Game 1 of Montreal’s playoff series against the Senators in 2015.  Since then, he went 12 straight games without a postseason goal coming into this postseason with the Caps.  Then, he went and more than doubled that unfortunate streak by going without a goal in the 13 games in which he played. It wasn’t for lack of trying; Eller did record 22 shots on goal in 13 games, a respectable total for a player getting 14 minutes a game.  And Eller did have excellent possession numbers in the postseason – 59.56 percent Corsi-for at 5-on-5, fourth-best on the team (numbers from Corsica.hockey).  But that pesky biscuit just wouldn’t go in the net, a malady that afflicted the bottom six forwards throughout the postseason.

In the end…

Lars Eller completed his regular season with a scoring line of 12-13-25, almost identical to that five-year average with which he entered the season 13-15-28, and he appeared in 81 of 82 games, consistent with the durability he displayed over the previous five years.  In that sense, in the overall scheme of things, it was an “Eller-like” season.  Unfortunately, the same can be said for his postseason.  Except for a fine 2014 postseason with Montreal (5-8-13 in 17 games), he has not been an especially noteworthy performer in the spring (1-4-5 in 20 games in three other playoff years).  Going 0-5-5 for the Caps this spring did nothing to improve his grading for the season.  Like too many Caps, especially among the bottom six, he just didn’t demonstrate a mastery of the subject in the final exam.  If he could have extended his consistency into the postseason, he could have earned the virtue of a higher grade.

Grade: C+

          Back in Copenhagen   
I’m back in Copenhagen, for a little while anyway, and I’m feeling just a smidgen of post-vacation letdown. There was a good feeling of camaraderie on that little oceanographic research island. Towards the later part of the week, Christian the Ph.D. student would repeatedly remind me that “we have rules here in Denmark!”. Mostly he […]
          2016 | the year in review   
GOPR1519 ES crop
2017 is here. It sounds like such a futuristic number. 2017 is the year I will celebrate 20 years since I graduated from high school. (Omg.) I'm honestly not feeling super inspired about this year (or the next four, yikes) thanks to current politics in this country. The impending inauguration is filling my January with dread. But at the same time, I'm more motivated than ever to make a difference in 2017.

But first, let's take a look back at 2016. It seems a little silly to summarize a year that I didn't write about in the first place. My life has felt so routine and cyclical these past few years and I'm not sure how to shake myself out of this deep rut. I feel like I'm just rehashing the same things on this blog year after year. I only seem to share travel photos anymore and my travel posts are feeling too formulaic and also make my life seem like all we do is travel. But in reality, there are lots of hard everyday moments in between those incredible trips. I do miss writing and sharing photos, and most of all documenting my life, so I guess there's no time like the present to get back in the blogging saddle. While 2016 was a bit of a crap year for the world (and definitely for the U.S.), and a difficult year for me emotionally and business-wise, it was also a pretty awesome year of travel and hiking for Larry and me. There's good and bad to all years, though, and I'm thankful I had such incredible adventures to make up for the challenging times.

But back to reminiscing about 2016. We traveled a ton this year, both within the U.S. and internationally. Socially, we laid low and kept to ourselves. My three biggest personal accomplishments were hiking 100 miles, finishing a sketchbook, and reading 62 books, which is a good reminder that it's the simple pleasures that make a good life.

I actually started this post back in January 2016 and typed up a summary of each month throughout the year...until June, when I forgot about it. Dedication to habits long-term has never been my strength. Luckily, thanks to the world of social media and the thousands of unorganized photos on my computer, it's easy to go back and remember what we were doing each month...

JANUARY

snowzilla 2016
Netflix and sweet potatoes. That pretty much sums up how we spent January. Larry and I were still reeling after a difficult and emotional December. 2015 had been a tough year for us, and we were still in recovery mode. The one thing I usually love about January is making goals and planning out the year. But we really struggled with planning this year because 2016 was supposed to go in one direction, and it ended up going in another. Which in retrospect is what keeps life interesting, but at the time was very confusing and we felt a bit upside-down.

After eating like college students in December, we rediscovered our cooking mojo and ended up spending the month eating dozens of sweet potatoes (Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potato and Tomato Sauce, Thai-Flavored Green Curry with Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans, Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos), watching Netflix (we were hooked on Making a Murderer) and starting to make travel plans after scoring tickets to see Pearl Jam in Quebec City in the spring. Snowzilla hit at the end of the month and we holed up with a few cases of beer and a giant pack of TP. We cooked banh mi in multiples forms. My SnoBrum got snowed into the trunk of my car, so we dug out with a kick board. We made snow angels in the backyard. We celebrated a belated Christmas with Larry's family in Maryland and had Dad and Sheila over for a Christmas/New Year's dinner. I started an online book club with Veronika and Karen and laughed my face off as we critiqued/destroyed our first book pick. I had a painting in a local art show and attended the VIVID opening with friends.

Our Virtual Book Club started reading Thru-Hiking Will Break Your Heart which led to both epic conversation (143 comments on our discussion thread- WHAT DOES IT EVEN MEAN?) and serious wanderlust. Larry and I took our first hike of the year with the pups on the A.T. in Maryland. We finally nailed down our plans for our annual anniversary trip and per usual, made the reservations at the last minute. We started talking about a summer trip to Scandinavia and tried to figure out how to squeeze in visiting Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and the Faroe Islands. Ha! We considered getting a reservation for dinner at Noma in Copenhagen before it closed at the end of the year. Ha, again! I spent a day in DC with my friends Jane and Lauree, drinking cocktails and marveling over the Wonder exhibit at the newly opened Renwick Gallery. Larry had a dream about me in which I exclaimed "I'm never partying with Elvis or drinking Old Crow again!" We went bowling and I got a high score of 141, which is about double what I usually bowl. (Should I add that to my list of accomplishments?!) We ate more banh mi. Larry non-surprised me with cupcakes on Valentine's Day. We celebrated our friend Jen's 40th/10th birthday on Leap Day. Our dryer broke as we were packing for our anniversary trip.

MARCH

We took our third anniversary trip to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. We relaxed at Sparrows Lodge, eating breakfast under the citrus trees, lounging by the pool, and spending the evenings in the hot tub. We only left the lodge to eat an anniversary dinner at Workshop. We stayed at an incredible modern cabin in the desert and hiked 9 miles to the Lost Palms Canyon Oasis. We saw a desert tortoise on the trail. I spent way too much time trying to photograph the perfect Joshua Tree. We listened to U2. We showered outside in a corrugated metal tube during a windstorm. We ate coconut cupcakes on our anniversary and sampled California beers. We saw incredible sunrises and the darkest night skies. We saw art installations at the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Museum. We dreamed of buying cheap land, moving to the desert, and opening up a taco joint.

Back in Virginia, spring finally arrived. We went hiking, and visited wineries, and tried to get rid of our winter funks. We did a lot of laundry at my mom's house. We planned local excursions and goals for the rest of the year. We had an Easter picnic in the car with my mom. We started eating healthy again after our winter slump. I was frustrated with low-carb/vegan breakfast options and became obsessed with this recipe for awesome Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Cookies.

APRIL

I started swimming laps again (with my waterproof iPod) and meditating in the mornings and was feeling great and productive. For the first time ever, I crossed off all my To Dos on my weekly planner. We celebrated Mom's birthday on a beautiful spring day at Hillwood Gardens. We hiked Rose River Falls in Shenandoah National Park. I volunteered to help build the Raise/Raze re-ball art installation at the DC Underground with friends. (And then was unable to see the finished exhibit because tickets sold out immediately!) I struggled with some business decisions. I went back to the Wonder exhibit to marvel over the installations again and take photos. We saw our first concert of the year on April 1st - Caleb Caudle and Wrinkleneck Mules at Jammin Java. On the last day of the month, we drove north and stopped in Schroon Lake, New York for a night on the way to Canada.

MAY

We spent a few days in Jacques-Cartier National Park in Quebec. We hiked over snow pack, stayed in a modern cabin, saw a moose, ate cheese (so much cheese!), and sat by the fire in the evening. We sampled Canadian beers. We met up with our friend Bryan in Quebec City, mangled the French language, ate poutine, and drank cocktails in the Hotel Frontenac. We saw Pearl Jam play at the Centre Videotron and survived the scariest cab ride of my life. We explored Montmorency Falls and took a culinary/alcohol driving tour of Ile d'Orleans, sampling wine, beer, cider, pastries, chocolate, and ice cream as we went.

Back in Virginia, I became enraged as the house across the street was torn down and construction began on a new McMansion to replace it. I read a memoir about Tokyo and became obsessed with Asian food. We finally replaced our washer and dryer after living without one for three months. We watched two baby foxes (and their mama) explore our yard for several weeks. I got locked out of the house for six hours. We began renovating my studio, and gave it a fresh coat of paint and built a giant bulletin board over Memorial Day weekend.

JUNE

We continued working on my studio reno, and then per usual, quit, mid-project. We celebrated Larry's birthday/Larrypalooza with several concerts: Nathaniel Rateliff and Lord Huron at Wolf Trap, and Frank Tuner, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton at Merriweather Post. We took our first (and only) bike ride of the year. We hiked Big Schloss in George Washington National Forest - one of the best local hikes we've ever done. I started a sketchbook and a 100 day personal challenge, which I called #artandactive. We finally booked our trip to Iceland. Gravy killed a baby bunny while I was sitting in the yard drinking a beer. I got new eyeglasses for the first time in 13 years. Karen died and I checked out of society for a while.

JULY

I made art and exercised every single day in July. We hiked Kennedy Peak and Wildcat Mountain and visited Creek's Edge Winery, Vanish Brewing Company, and Backroom Brewery. I got stung by a bee. We spent Saturday mornings at the farmers market. We bought tons of tomatoes and Larry worked on perfecting his Bloody Larry recipe. We had a picnic in Cherry Hill Park. I got a GoPro and practiced by taking a thousand fish-eye selfies of my big head using burst mode. I went to Belmar to visit my dad and we spent our days at the beach. I swam in the coldest water I've ever been in. In the mornings we read on the porch, ate fruit, and walked 4 miles down the Spring Lake Boardwalk. I convinced Dad to eat vegetarian sausage. I watched the Democratic National Convention and drew politicians in my sketchbook. Cory Booker liked my drawing of him on Instagram. We picked 9 pounds of blackberries.

AUGUST

I ate all the blackberries. It was seriously Iron Chef Battle Blackberry in the Smoellke test kitchen, as I made everything from cocktails to pizza using our berry bounty. I spent many hours watching the Rio Olympics. I continued sketching and exercising every day for my #artandactive challenge, but quit after 77 consecutive days, because we went to Iceland...

A trip to Iceland had been on my bucket list for nearly 20 years. It was definitely the highlight of the month and the year. After surviving a huge travel snafu in getting over there, we had a wonderful time. We explored Reykjavik, and saw a local music festival at the Kex Hostel, where we discovered the music of the incredible Axel Flóvent. We soaked in the Blue Lagoon, saw hundreds of waterfalls and thousands of sheep, and hiked to a geothermal river. I fell on my face and nearly knocked my teeth out. I spent more time naked outside than I ever have. We ate tomato soup in a tomato greenhouse. We saw seals frolicking among icebergs. We walked on a glacier. We saw the Northern Lights and watched them shimmering overhead while soaking in a hot tub on the deck of our cabin.

SEPTEMBER

We had a few more days in Iceland. We saw the Northern Lights again. We hiked the famous Fimmvörduháls Trail. We took what I thought was a nature cruise and ended up being a death-defying ride on a speedboat. Back at home, I struggled with jet lag and post-vacation funk. We started hiking in Virginia again and visiting wineries afterwards. We went tubing on the Shenandoah River with our friend Bryan and a cooler full of beer. A new season of television started, and I got hooked on This Is Us.

OCTOBER

I completed my first embroidery project, became obsessed, and started several larger embroidery projects. We hiked some more. Gravy got hurt and we ended up leaving him at the e-vet while I sobbed at the pizza restaurant across the street. He was fine. We went to a Halloween party dressed as Yukon Cornelius and his Bumble. I dressed Gravy up as a sad martini using his cone of shame. I watched the presidential debates and felt enraged. We visited our nephew at West Virginia University and saw Frank Turner perform at a local club. Larry and Thomas gave me a tour of the campus and the engineering school. I was very excited to ride the PRT (personal rapid transit). We drank the bottle of Poizin zinfandel that I had been saving for six years. It was incredible.

NOVEMBER

The beginning of November was abuzz with equal parts anxiety and excitement over the upcoming election. It was almost all I could think about. A few days before the election, we saw a snake in our yard - an ominous sign? On the evening of November 8th, we were frantically packing for a flight to New Mexico which left early the next day, but I still made time to bake a Hillary quiche for dinner and sit down to watch the election returns. As we all know, THINGS DID NOT GO AS EXPECTED. As the night hours became early morning, my worry switched to fear and then uncontrollable tears and despair. I got several bloody noses. I finally forced myself to lie in bed for an hour before my alarm went off to go to the airport. I'm not sure how I managed to finish packing for the trip, other than I got a case of the fuck-its, crammed some clothes in my suitcase, and said "Let's just get the f*** outta DC!" And at the time, I would've been ok not coming back. I considered driving from New Mexico to actual Mexico and saying adios to the USA forever. I'm still crushed by the election, but a little more level-headed these days. I am so thankful that we had to leave for a trip the next day because that escape was just what I needed. I found myself getting teary multiple times during our trip, but the foreign landscape of rural New Mexico and some good ol' nature therapy definitely gave me some separation from what was going on in DC.

In Santa Fe, I explored the art galleries on Canyon Road while Larry went to business meetings. At night, we sat by the fire in our kiva. We stuffed our faces with face-melting New Mexican food - I ordered Christmas chile on everything. We talked politics with some long-bearded guys at a bar. We headed north to a great little AirBnB cottage in Dixon. Our hosts were wonderful and brought us cookies. We hiked at Tent Rocks, Rio Grande del Norte, and Chimney Rock at Ghost Ranch. I finally saw a Big Horn Sheep. In the evenings, we played Scrabble in the cottage. We visited wineries and ate green chile pizza at Mamacita's.

Back in Virginia, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at our friends' house. I made a pumpkin praline cheesecake. We hosted a birthday/chili party for our friend Mike. We went to the National Gallery of Art with my dad and had dinner afterwards at Montmartre. My obsession with embroidery continued, and I stitched until I started suffering from severe neck pain. Gravy got sick and gave us another scare. I made a video of our New Mexico trip using the 1 Second Everyday app.

DECEMBER

December is always an extremely difficult and stressful month for me. I tried to plan ahead this year to ward off the stress and emotions, but the month ended up walloping me anyway. I painted dozens of ornaments to raise money for charities. We kicked off our last hike of the year by eating vegan donuts at Glory Doughnuts, and then we hiked the A.T. to Annapolis Rock and completed our 100 mile challenge. We popped into The Bottom Line to drink beer under the Christmas lights. I burned a lot of scented candles. I changed my hair color. We saw our eighth concert of the year - The Weepies at The State Theatre. I celebrated my birthday with friends at Miracle on 7th Street and Right Proper Brewing Company. Larry took me on a dinner date at Equinox. I hung out with the Sara/hs and drank wine, ate cheese, and laughed my face off with my oldest friends. I made cookies. I finally replaced my four-year old, nearly inoperable iPhone. I failed to send out Christmas cards for the second year in a row. I started diapering my dog who started taking out his dissatisfaction with life on our carpet. I read my 62nd book of the year. We saw Manchester by the Sea in the theater and the Winter Walk of Lights at Meadowlark Gardens. We ate spaghetti for Christmas dinner and hung out with the dogs. As usual, Larry and I gave each other almost identical gifts. We hosted a southern-themed New Year's Eve dinner party and burned old Christmas trees in the backyard. At midnight we toasted with Alabama Slammers, lamented the future of the U.S., and talked about where we'd go in 2017...

          Germany adopts series of changes to federal acts on combined heat and power and renewable energy   

As one of the last actions before the summer break, the German Parliament adopted important changes to the laws for combined heat and power (CHP) and for renewable energy. Ecofys, a Navigant company, supported the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in the preparation of the different legal acts:

  • CHP law introduces auctions: The amended law introduces auctions for CHP plants between 1 and 50 MWel and for innovative CHP plants that produce heat from renewable sources. Together, both auctions have a volume of 200 MW per year. The first round is planned for autumn 2017. 
  • Parts of the energy community rules for onshore wind auctions will be paused in 2018: The controversial parts of the preferential rules for community energy projects will not apply for the first two auction rounds in 2018. This provides sufficient time to evaluate and possibly amend the rule by mid-2018.
  • Joint auctions for PV and onshore wind will be tested: In a pilot auction, onshore wind and PV plants compete for 400 MW per year. To reflect different system integration costs, a so-called distribution grid component shows part of the cost for required grid expansion, and to reflect the different resource potential of wind onshore, differential maximum prices apply. The first round will take place in 2018.  
  • Negative bid prices are not allowed in offshore auctions: In the next auction round, scheduled for May 2018, the minimum bid price will be 0 cent/kWh. The rule ensures that bidders will not bid at negative prices, which would not be meaningful anyway. The German sliding premium system allows bidders to keep their electricity market revenues, independent of their bid price. If several bidders bid zero, the minimal volume or the lot decide the winner. As drawing a lot cannot be in the interest of the offshore industry, work remains to make future auctions competitive, even if all bidders bid zero.

Ecofys, a Navigant company, has led the consortium that supports the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in the design and evaluation of the different renewable energy auctions since 2014. The consortium also includes ZSW, Takon, Consentec, Fraunhofer ISI, BBG and Partner, and GÖRG. Ecofys also supported the government in the design of the CHP auction scheme.

The Ecofys auctions team has comprehensive consulting expertise in energy auctions through advisory for the German government, the European Commission, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Nordic Council, IRENA, GIZ, USAID, and different private companies. Our experience covers auctions for renewables, CHP plants, energy efficiency, storage, and other technologies.


          A New Vertigo-Inducing Tower Will Let You See the Forest for the Trees   
A New Vertigo-Inducing Tower Will Let You See the Forest for the Trees

Just don’t look down.

The Gisselfeld Kloster Klove Forest in Denmark is responsible for growing many of Europe’s Christmas trees. But it’s the region’s potential for eco-tourism that may well put the forest on the map: as of next year, visitors to the area will get a unique perspective on the forest from by climbing a 45-metre observation tower known as the Treetop Experience.

With its unique spiral structure, the tower won’t just be aesthetically pleasing, but low impact as well. Nature enthusiasts will be able to meander along a raised walkway through younger areas of growth (the low route) before they tackle the circular incline up into (and above) the canopy. It’s all part of a larger plan for the area, which includes the creation of an adventure camp as an alternative for those who prefer the adrenaline rush of a zip line through the trees to calming walk amongst them.


          Resumen europeo: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, 30 jun - 06:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.


          ON THE AVENUES: Back in the USSR, with my old friend Barr.   
ON THE AVENUES: Back in the USSR, with my old friend Barr.

A weekly column by Roger A. Baylor.

28 June 1987.

Just shy of midnight, my childhood pal Barrie “Barr” Ottersbach stepped off the elevator into the corridor running past the block of rooms reserved at the Hotel Molodjezhny for the use of Scandinavian Travel Service Tour’s SSTS S819, conducted in conjunction with Sputnik, the Soviet youth and student agency.

Three decades of campfire stories were about to break out.

I’d debuted earlier the same day, miraculously allowed to occupy a room without waiting for the group’s late evening arrival. As the Americans, Canadians and Australians who would be my travel companions for the next two weeks came trickling down the corridor, I grilled them.

“Did Barrie make it?”

“Barrie? Is he the crazy guy with the mustache? Don’t worry. He’s coming.”

As I was grinding out the endless miles from Budapest to Moscow to the rhythm of choo-choo wheels and the providential lubrication of Bull’s Blood wine, Barrie had flown from Louisville to Copenhagen, Denmark and spent a hotel night there prior to meeting the group at the pre-arranged location.

On the 28th, the tour group flew from Copenhagen to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), then switched planes for the late flight to Moscow, arriving at 22.30.

Barrie and I long had been keen on visiting the USSR as a team, and my brief weekend experience in Leningrad in 1985 inspired me to plot a return in 1987. He decided to go, too, and when the Soviet tour was over, we’d be continuing our journey into Western Europe. In the end, we spent more than six weeks carousing, with a great deal of learning as an added bonus.

Visiting the USSR meant finding a good tour package. During the Cold War, independent or otherwise unsupervised travel in the Soviet Union was problematic. It could be done, just not easily. Once on the ground with a group, there’d be nothing binding us to the daily schedule, and we could explore on our own, provided we remained within city limits and kept our tour leader informed.

Barrie and I discussed it at length, and took the recommendation of Let’s Go: Europe by opting for SSTS. I’ve never once regretted the decision. SSTS’s itinerary was designed for impoverished youth, and was as affordable as it got. While decidedly non-luxurious, it covered the high points and got us inside, through the gate.

More importantly, the tour led to an enduring friendship with Kim Wiesener, the Danish group leader for SSTS, and by extension, with his friends Allan Gamborg and Kim Andersen.

Kim was our age, but he was an old Soviet hand, with a Russian branch on his family tree. He had attended Moscow State University and spoke Russian. His gig for SSTS was part-time, and offered a working holiday every now and then.

The poor guy. He had no idea.

---

Legend has it that Kim fell under Barrie’s spell (or was it the other way around?) during the apparently bumpy Aeroflot flights. It’s no surprise. Barrie was, and remains, a people person writ large. If you’re not his comrade, it’s only because you haven’t yet met him – as numerous Marxist-Leninists were about to learn.

By midnight we were drinking every beer we could scrounge from a relatively helpful restaurant employee downstairs, and catching up on things. Subconsciously, I began adjusting to the likelihood of vastly reduced sleep for the foreseeable future.

Next morning, the first of many boozy evenings behind us, tour participants met in the lobby for a breakfast the likes of which I can’t remember at all. As befits a budget tour of a Communist country, the food we’d paid to be fed was a bit of a letdown, rather institutional, and sufficient for sustenance but little else.

All the more reason to seek calories in alcohol.

As the group dined, Kim counted heads. On the very first morning of the tour, there already was one conspicuous absence, which was left for me to explain.

No worries, I told Kim.

Barrie’s with Bill.

Bill? What Russian is named “Bill”?

Yes, well … Bill. You know – from the Ukraine, not Russia.

Rather than the regularly scheduled orientation bus ride through Moscow, Barrie had opted to join the friendly neighborhood black market sales representative for an informative glimpse into the Soviet Union’s alternative underground “second” economy.

Bill was hesitant to be photographed. 

As Kim gulped and reached for the Danish version of Rolaids, I apologized. I’d been the one who had met Bill on the street the previous day, discretely changed money with him, and been treated to ice cream and a hot dog.

In fact, I was ready to pay Bill a high compliment; for a Communist all of 18 years old, he was a highly polished entrepreneur. Kim shook his head, perhaps glimpsing the sheer magnitude of the chaperone’s task ahead.

The morning bus orientation concluded, we returned to the hotel for lunch and found Barr waiting, bright and chipper following his appointment … and not coincidentally, brandishing a softball-sized wad of colorful Soviet rubles.

In effect, he’d laundered rubles into dollars so that Bill LLC could buy audio equipment at a Beriozka, or hard currency store where quality foreign items were sold for real money, not rubles.

---

The Soviet Union may have appeared monolithic, though the country’s economy was anything but.

The second economy in the Soviet Union was the informal sector in the economy of the Soviet Union. The term was suggested by Gregory Grossman in his seminal article, "The Second Economy of the USSR" (1977). Economist Gerard Roland noted that as Grossman anticipated, "the logic of the second economy tended over time to undermine the logic of the command system and to lead to expanding black markets" … to a varying degree, second economy influenced all Eastern Bloc economies.

Grossman defines the concept of second economy with a two-prong test: it is the set of economic activities which satisfy at least one of the two conditions: "(a) being directly for private gain (b) being in some significant respect in knowing contravention of existing law."

The black market feature of this “second economy” existed to suit demand that the official economy couldn’t (or wouldn’t) fill.

As the joke went, Soviet citizens pretended to work, and the government pretended to pay them. In theory, the basics of life – food, shelter, medical care – were provided at little or no charge, meaning that there’d be ample leftover rubles for discretionary spending.

Except there wasn’t very much to buy.

Command economies in the Soviet Bloc were geared to produce heavy industrial articles -- steel, cement, tractors -- and not consumer goods. Consequently, everyday items westerners took for granted were generally scarce.

The common man’s solution was to stick the excess rubles into savings accounts or stuff them under the mattress, then dive headfirst into the “blat” economy of barter and favors in order to keep the household wheels turning.

Almost inevitably, this meant circumventing the law. The object of blat was to accumulate swappable chits, either tangible or intangible. As can be readily imagined, petty thievery and outright corruption quickly ensued.

If scarce shoes arrived at a shop, the employees would divvy them up before they were stocked in view of the public, because their value was higher in the informal bartering market than as a cash transaction – and if you couldn’t get a physical object in return for a pair of pilfered shoes, the favor you were owed could be saved and redeemed when necessary.

Perhaps the dentist given the shoes would fix your teeth off the clock ... "borrowing" workplace materials, of course.

Bill’s entrepreneurial career was little more than a logical progression from Blat 101. He recognized that the Soviet government was complicit in the black market, or else it wouldn’t have established Beriozka shops in the first place, filled with goods unobtainable without dollars, Deutschmarks or pounds sterling.

That’s because the ruble was not attached to the planetary capitalist economic system. Rubles had no value outside the Soviet Union, so the government needed hard currency just as much as Bill wanted audio equipment.

In turn, Barrie now found himself with several hundred rubles in a place where subway tickets were mere kopecks (or shrapnel, as Barrie referred to them) and a lavish restaurant meal with vodka, champagne and caviar might cost 10 – 15 rubles per person, or maybe $22 at the “official” exchange rate, but Barr’s black market rate was closer to seven rubles to the dollar, perhaps even more.

A fur hat of ordinary quality could be found on the shelf in a department store, for just a few of Barrie’s rubles. The better quality fur hats? They were in the Beriozka, and unavailable for purchase with rubles at any price.

So, how would Barrie's ruble windfall be depleted? Rubles couldn't be exchanged back into dollars without a bank receipt, and it was illegal to take them out of the USSR. Even if smuggled out, rubles were worth almost nothing.

But Barrie always has been an observant student of human nature, and he’d already considered the angles before joining Bill for a June morning’s foraging. He’d gleefully spend as many rubles as possible on meals, beers and commonplace (but atmospheric) souvenir trinkets to pack home.

As his chief accomplice, I’d be allowed to run a tab.

Barrie also would take a page out of Bill’s guidebook and accept a temporary position as financial consultant on the Anglophone fringe of the black market, profitably reselling rubles back into hard currency at a reasonable “favored customer” discount for those members of our tour group who were too cautious to trade for them on the street.

In the end, it all worked out just fine. In the coming days, I’ll do my best to describe these memorable times abroad.

Some of the stories might even be true.

          Taste of the Town: DRM brings European cafe and deli to St. Charles   
ST. CHARLES – A taste of Europe that combines an inviting fast-casual restaurant with a delicatessen and a market full of imported specialties awaits at the recently opened DRM, a European cafe and deli on Route 64 just east of downtown St. Charles.

For a quick and hearty lunch serving everything from schnitzel to potato pancakes, a hot buffet is offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Strudel and cheese blintzes are some of the sweet temptations, and the shop carries items from local artisan bakers and farmers.

Dan Migo’s first restaurant, which bears his initials, a former chef who has been an avid cook since childhood and who operates DRM with his wife, Joanna.

Born in Poland, he arrived in St. Charles about 30 years ago, his family sponsored by St. John Neumann Catholic Church. Migo said he opened DRM to give something back to the community he loves that would reflect his heritage and the foods he grew up with, adding he has expanded the range of cuisines beyond Poland.

“I lived in Germany and Austria,” he said. “Why not do a small intimate gathering with some little bits [that are also] German, Czech … Lithuanian.”

He said offerings extend to food from Belgium, Sweden and Denmark – describing it as all over the map, including Italy in a nod to his wife’s heritage.

“We thought originally we’d be a boutique grocery store, but … we are more of a deli lunch crowd,” Migo said. “We’re concentrating more on the deli and hot buffet lunch. We have classics and always add something different – goulash today, Polish sausage with caramelized onions and green peppers. Staples [such as] stuffed cabbage rolls, schnitzel, potato pancakes and pierogi are always available.”

The attractive restaurant section is near the large front windows, where tablecloth-clad booths and tables are set off by a wall-size photograph of the market square in the Polish city of Poznan. Patio seating with umbrellas for shade also is available.

One can order wine by the glass and beer by the bottle for consumption on the premises. In an age of local craft brewers, patrons can go back to Old World sources with selections from such countries as Germany, Poland, Lithuania and the Czech Republic, including a dark beer, Hirter Morchl, from Austria’s oldest brewery, founded in the 1200s.

Migo said the deli offers smoked hams, cheeses, pork loins, tenderloins and homemade sausages, as well as different meats from Germany.

“And we have common items for people who may be less adventurous,” he said. “You can get turkey, roast beef, pastrami and corned beef sandwiches.”

Lettuce wraps are available for people avoiding bread, and there are soups and salad.

Specialty items, including gluten-free baked goods, which must be ordered in advance, are available from Monika’s Organic Bakery, one of the German bakers who helps stock the pastry display.

The shop offers some staples such as flour and sugar, as well as Amish eggs and butter. A bakery delivers multigrain, pumpernickel, rye, German and whole-grain breads three times a week.

Shelves tempt appetites with imported jams; honeys; candy from Germany, Belgium, Italy and Poland; chocolate; pickled vegetables; ice cream from Lithuania and Russia; cookies; crackers; mustards; ketchups; fruit juices; herbal syrups; cooking ingredients; and numerous other edibles.

“The thing about European pastries and desserts is they are not overly sweet,” Migo said.

And apt accompaniment is a cup of espresso or other specialty coffee or tea, with a variety of syrups to customize them. DRM serves Lavazza coffee from Italy.

Music lovers can catch Mark Denney playing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

“My material is strongly rooted in Irish traditional music played on the five-string banjo and solo guitar,” Denney said in an email. “To keep things interesting, I mix up the sets with bits of light classical and pop and folk.”

With DRM, Migo said he strived to create something adventurous and completely different for the area.

DRM is located at 610 E. Main St. in St. Charles, and is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 630-940-2882 or visit drmeurocafe.com.


          Ray deal worth a billion   
Ray deal worth a billion
 
Israeli owner Ray Car Carriers’ order for newbuildings at Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Corp (Vinashin) is a $1bn deal, according to an official at the yard.


Vinashin was reported on Wednesday to be building up to eight units for the Israeli owner but the company did not disclose any financial details.



Now a senior official at Vinashin has put the price at $1bn but did not confirm the number of units to be made for Ray Car Carriers.


The first vessel will be delivered in September 2008 with subsequent newbuildings to follow at intervals of between five and six months.


The 4,500-unit car carriers are being designed by Naval Progetti Co of Italy.


Vinashin currently has orders for about 100 vessels totaling around 3.5m-dwt.


In late April the shipbuilder secured contracts for two 56,000-dwt bulkers from Japanese trading house Itochu Corp.


UK-based Graig is said to have a total of 15 Diamond-53 class bulkers on order there at Vinashin’s yards.


In February, Denmark's Clipper Group ordered no less than 10 4,600-dwt multipurpose vessels, while MPC Marine of Germany recently upped its orders for 707-teu vessels to 10.


Vinashin has been on an expansion drive of late with more new yards set to open.


Last week it won approval from the government for a new $18m yard in the Mekong Delta province of Han Giang which will be capable of building and repairing vessels up to 10,000-dwt.


Vinashin is building a new yard on a 54-hectare site in the southernmost province of Ca Mau at a cost of VND 300bn ($18.82m). The yard will be able to build vessels of between 5,000-dwt and 10,000-dwt.


A subsidiary of the company, Thanh Long Co, is also expanding capacity at its yard in a project set to cost VND 800bn.


The company is investing in the manufacture of steel in Vietnam in an effort to keep up with the growing demand for new tonnage worldwide.

More horses for MAN B&W

 
MAN B&W says the first diesel engine developing more than 100,000 bhp has entered service on a Costamare vessel.
The 12K98MC unit of 101,640 bhp has been installed in the first of a series of 9,200-teu containerships being constructed at Hyundai Heavy Industries for the Greek owner.


MAN B&W Diesel licensee Hyundai in Korea built the engine which weighs around 2,100 tons. Costamare's super post-panamax vessels are being chartered to Cosco Container Lines (Coscon) in China.


MAN B&W is a subsidiary of the German industrial group MAN AG which says it intends to convert its diesel engine business into a European company or Societas Europaea (SE) this year

At the same time, MAN B&W Diesel AG in Augsburg is to be renamed MAN Diesel SE.


The new SE legal form will allow for a stronger integration of MAN's international business activities, says the company.The supervisory board should in future include members from other European countries, as well as employee representatives from Germany.


Corporate centre for the new MAN Diesel SE will be in Augsburg. MAN's diesel division employs 6,700 people in Germany, Denmark, the UK, France, Czech Republic and China.


MAN B&W Diesel was formed in 1979 following the takeover of Danish engine manufacturer Burmeister & Wain (B&W) by MAN.

          CoasterRadio.com #113 - European Theme Parks   

When we first started CoasterRadio.com, we had no idea that people from all around the world would listen.

We've been making friends with people in the UK, Germany, France, Denmark, Austria and other countries throughout Europe.

So, even though we don't know a lot about Europe, we're going to do our best to devote this week's show to European Theme Parks.

To help us out, Robb from Theme Park Review.com will be joining us. Robb, along with his wife Elissa and a bunch of their friends just got back from a three week tour of European Parks. They visited 25 parks in 8 different countries.

Robb will tell us about some of the unique attractions that are featured in European parks and how they compare to ones in the US. He'll also talk about how the atmosphere of their parks helps to make sure everyone has a good time.

We'll also give another clue in our on-going SOUNDWAVE contest. We're in week three and no one has correctly guessed the roller coaster yet. We'll also have a chance for one of our listeners to win a Tomb Raider: Firefall Prize Pack in our Theme Park Trivia segment.

Speaking of Paramount's Kings Dominion, we'll be there next Saturday, July 30th for a special taping of CoasterRadio.com. We'll be there to celebrate their 30th anniversary, check out their new attractions and try to get the dirt on what new attraction they'll be building in 2006.

Thanks for listening! We'll see you in the CoasterRadio.com Forum!


          Doggerland likely to have vanished due to the Storegga tsunami 8 ka ago   
“Doggerland” refers to a drowned landscape located where the North Sea stretches today. Fishermen have found numerous archaeological artifacts when fishing between the coasts of UK and Denmark/Germany (more or less), which led to the idea that an ancient culture lived in this area when the sea level was lower some thousands of years ago. Archaeological studies and modelling confirmed this hypothesis (e.g., see Coles, 2000 or see this paper with a really cool title: White, 2006). Slowly rising sea […]
          Europe forecast: Heatwave south-east - Unsettled north & west, Jun 30 - 00:43   

Friday Unsettled and cool for northern Europe, whilst a plume of hot air affects the south-east of the continent. Much of Iberia will be dry, sunny and warm, 28 to 30C for southern Portugal and Andalucia. A northerly breeze brings rain to northern Spain. Showers for the western Mediterranean islands, also northern Italy. The central & eastern Mediterranean is hot and sunny, touching 40C for Greece and western Turkey. Temperatures widely into the mid-30s across Romania, Ukraine and the Balkans. Much cooler temperatures across central & western Europe, only 16 to 19C for France with outbreaks of rain, most persistent in central & western areas. Showery for the Alps and Germany, although drier to the east. Low pressure centred over southern Scandinavia brings strong winds, local easterly gales around the central Baltic. Persistent rain for Denmark, plus northern coasts of Germany and Poland. Rain also affects the Baltic states and southern Sweden, whilst much of northern Scandinavia stays dry, and pleasantly warm, highs in western Norway reaching 23C.

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Some thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C again. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Some rain around the southern Baltic.

You can visit southern Norway (Oslo-Bergen route along with Flam). I'd recommend Tromso and Lofoten as well but you can decide according to your convenience. In Sweden, Stockholm is an absolute must. You can visit Malmo as well. In Denmark, I visited only Copenhagen. Communication shouldn't be a problem since almost everyone speaks English there. In big cities you won't have problem finding veg food, but can't say the same for smaller towns.

          Recent Reading: The Year of Living Danishly    

I did a double take the first time I saw this writer's name. Helen Russell was the name of my theater professor in college and I didn't think my Helen Russell was still around, much less that she'd just spent a year in Denmark testing the happiness waters. I was right: this is not my Helen Russell in any way, shape, or form. This Helen Russell is a British freelance writer who was living in London, and was married to a man who was offered a job at Lego. (It sounds like the beginning of a storybook: Once upon a time, there was a man who went to work at Lego....) 

Lego beckoned (don't Legos always beckon?) and so Helen and Lego Man, as she calls him, moved. Helen, being a journalist and needing to fill the roughly 675 hours a month that it's dark in Denmark in the winter, decided to write about the adventure. She and Lego Man gave themselves a year to decide if they really wanted to make the Land of the Best Pastries on Earth their permanent home or not. She also set out on her own kind of happiness project to discover why Danes are considered the happiest people in the world. (Something to do with the pastries, was my guess.) 

The Year of Living Danishly was delightful, informative, and witty and it had me debating the merits of moving to a Nordic Wonderland. I told Atticus this morning that the whole time I was reading, I found myself nodding, thinking, "Yes, I could do that. I could live there. I wonder if..." and then I'd have to shake it off, return to reality, and remind myself that moving to Denmark is not an option in our lives. This is not a real thing for me. Not now. Not ever. It's just not. But the pastries...And the pace....

(No. We are not moving to Denmark. We're not even contemplating it. Stop acting like it's a conversation you're going to have with Atticus, Karen.) 

I think if there was a place on earth where I could have the lifestyle of Denmark (minus some of its quirks, because, let's face it, it's majorly quirky*), along with their entire nation's stock of candles for proper hygge-ness, and we could throw in their education and healthcare systems, and experience an average daily temperature that approximates San Diego, and I could be promised a few million more hours of sunshine, I might have a real pro and con list to compose.  

But until I find that place, I'll have to content myself with living Midwesternly. It's not quite the same, sigh. Though happily I can say that we at Casa Edmisten are all about the hygge. And books. Witty books like The Year of Living Danishly

*Adding a brief caveat: be aware, if you are sensitive to such things, that Russell does explain the generally casual approach many Danes have to certain intimate things, just fyi.

          Copenhagen cycling collision   































A delightfully informal picture of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, as she improves her shooting technique



Crown princess Mary found herself unintentionally turning heads yesterday when she was involved in a collision with a cyclist in the tony Østerbro district. According to eyewitnesses, Mary, driving with two of her children at the time, appeared to be completely taken by surprise

[ Note: only one un-named eyewitness is cited in this report ]

as a female cyclist crashed right into the side of the family's bronze Land Rover as the car made a right-hand turn. 

[ I hate people who drive Land Rovers in cities. Nobody apart from a farmer needs a Land Rover, least of all to transport their kiddies around dense urban areas. Land Rovers also tend to be very badly driven because, as risk compensation theory points out, cars which protect drivers personally from the consequences of reckless behaviour tend to be cars which are driven without consideration for their impact on others. ]

“The cyclist seemed to almost be lost in her own world. It’s like she didn’t even see the car,” a construction worker who saw the accident unfold from the scaffolding nearby told the tabloid BT.

[ No, surely the cyclist had a momentary lapse of attention, the sort of thing that could happen to anyone. And anyway I expect the Land Rover just came out of nowhere. ]

The woman, said to be an “older woman”, was not injured in the collision, but the rear wheel of her bike was reportedly damaged. 

[ The rear wheel. Eh? If the woman collided with the Land Rover why was it only the rear wheel that was damaged? ]

The court has since confirmed that Mary was involved in the incident, and that the crown princess had contacted the cyclist to ask how she was doing. The royal family has also said it would pay for any damages done to the bike. 

[ This might be smart PR (aren’t royal families wonderful and kind and generous and super nice) or it might just be an admission of guilt. ]

The junction where the incident occurred is said to be notorious for its collisions between cars and bicycles. 

[ But surely Copenhagen is paradise and some influential cycling campaigners believe that the Copenhagen model is more realistic for London than the Dutch model. So please don’t mention important differences between Danish and Dutch design or that cycling is under strain in Copenhagen, with numbers evidently in decline. ]

          Tolkien’s 88-year-old ‘Beowulf’ translation to be published this spring   
An 88-year-old translation of ‘Beowulf’ will soon join J.R.R. Tolkien’s published bibliography

An 88-year-old translation of ‘Beowulf’ will soon join J.R.R. Tolkien’s published bibliography. Photo of “Beowulf” manuscript courtesy of Carson-Newman College.

One of the oldest, longest and most influential works in the history of Old English will soon be experienced through the eyes of one of the world’s most beloved fantasy authors.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s translation of “Beowulf,” completed in 1926, will be published in May, his son Christopher Tolkien told The Guardian. In Tolkien’s version, the esteemed author utilizes a “creative attention to detail” that brings new life and a new perspective to the poem, according to his son.

“It is as if he entered into the imagined past: standing beside Beowulf and his men shaking out their mail-shirts as they beached their ship on the coast of Denmark, listening to the rising anger of Beowulf at the taunting of Unferth, or looking up in amazement at Grendel’s terrible hand set under the roof of Heorot.”

Tolkien, revered author of “The Hobbit” and the “Lord of the Rings” series, was also a well-known scholar of Anglo-Saxon language and literature. His 1936 lecture “Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics” was a milestone moment in the study of the poem, significant in shaping how the piece is read and understood in modern times.

His own writing was influenced in no small way by “Beowulf.” Tolkien scholar John Garth told The Guardian that the poem had “a deep and detailed impact on what Tolkien wrote – from his earliest poem of Middle-Earth, written in September 1914, right through ‘The Hobbit’ with the theft of a cup from a dragon hoard, and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ with the arrival at the halls of Rohan.”

This new translation — released 15 years after Seamus Heaney’s version became an international bestseller — is expected to be well-received by Tolkien’s fans.

“I can already see it in [British bookstore chain] Waterstones — the leather-bound, illustrated gift edition, filed next to ‘The Hobbit’ and the boxed DVD ‘Game of Thrones,’” said poet Simon Armitage.

“Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary,” including the translations, a series of lectures given about the poem, and a “marvelous tale” written by Tolkien, will be released on May 22 through HarperCollins.

          4th Annual Eco Film Festival at the Labia Theatre 23 – 30 March 2017   

The 4th Annual SA Eco Film Festival returns to Cape Town and surrounds, proudly supported by leading Western Cape ECO Friendly business partners Sustainable.co.za, Ballo, Reliance and Hemporium.
This years Festival theme is #ChangeIsHere in light of a tumultuous 2016 – which took the record for the hottest global temperatures ever measured, served up several political surprises across continents and saw burgeoning technological advances from driverless cars to falling costs of renewable power – whatever your opinion or beliefs, #ChangeIsHere.
With engaging and thought provoking program content the Festival seeks to explore what changes are needed, and how our personal change can affect the world for the better. We are proud to be showcasing challenging, intriguing and creative film content from SA and across the World highlighting issues that effect us all, whilst introducing participants, filmmakers and audience members alike to sustainable living choices and life style changes that are available, today.
With audience Q&A’s, guest speakers and more, this years SA Eco Film Festival is gearing up to create an ever bigger impact than ever before.

The program covers a broad range of pressing topics, each with a unique approach highlighting the urgency of the environmental situation and offering hope by uniting people working towards a solution. Among the issues covered are population growth and its devastating combined effect with consumerism; escalating global trade and the impact of the massive maritime freight industry, the hidden realities of climate change on the oceans and ideas to utilise this vast resource in addressing water scarcity. The exposé continues with threatened seed banks and the patenting thereof by corporate greed and social injustice still rampant in child slavery. Underpinning these themes is a call to action to protect what we take for granted and debunking an outdated system no longer in line with the demands of the future.

THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES (80 MINS, USA, 2016)

The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth, this film investigates the impacts of irreversible climate change through the lens of US national security and global instability. The film's unnerving assessment is not a reason for fatalism but a call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy.

          GUEST BLOG: Scott Oden   

Robert E. Howard once wrote: “There is no literary work, to me, half as zestful as rewriting history in the guise of fiction.” For my own part, I would agree – but with a single caveat. To me, there is no literary work half as zestful as rewriting history in the guise of fantasy. It is well known that some writers spend decades creating elaborate worlds wherein to set their stories, worlds with deep histories, complex politics, eerie religions, and civilization-shattering wars. They reveal these layers chapter by chapter, story by story, until the whole is laid bare. This, some say, is where the artistry of the genre resides – in the painting of a masterpiece on the blank canvas of imagination.

Other writers invest the same amount of time researching our collective historical past for their stories, learning the deep histories, complex politics, eerie religions, and civilization-shattering wars of the real world. And into the chapters and stories they winnow from history, they introduce magic. Gods made manifest; monsters given life. Thus, if traditional fantasy represents the Dutch masters, historical fantasy would be the equivalent of art restoration mixed with forgery. The historical fantasist does not start with a blank canvas; she works with an expanse that already has color, texture, patina – along with some scrapes and tears and lacunae. In those empty quarters is where the fantasy takes root and grows.

The world of our ancestors is perhaps the richest, most vibrant fantasy milieu ever. It is replete with blood and thunder, with pageantry and pestilence, with good and evil, and with a deep, almost pervasive belief in the mythic, in the supernatural. The Hyborian Age, Middle-earth, the Young Kingdoms, Westeros . . . these are but echoes of this frightening and magnificent world of the past. Of course, not every author agrees. “Fantasy is escapism,” some say. “All that cannot be. All the sweetest unfulfillable dreams and the sweaty sheet nightmares.” The historical past is not these things. It is grim. It is bloody. It is a tapestry of woe against which the life of you or I matters as much as a single grain of sand.

“Yes,” I reply. “But it doesn't have to be.”

As far back as 1931, Robert E. Howard – whose work serves as a pillar of fantasy – saw the potential in the literary mining of history: “I’ve been thinking of writing a tale about him for a long time. And Babur the Tiger who established the Mogul rule in India - and the imperial phase in the life of Baibars the Panther, the subject of my last story - and the rise of the Ottomans - and the conquest of Constantinople by the Fifth Crusade - the subjugation of the Turks by the Arabs in the days of Abu Bekr - and the gradual supplanting of the Arab masters by their Turkish slaves which culminated in the conquest of Asia Minor and Palestine by the Seljuks - and the rise of Saladin - and the final destruction of Christian Outremer by Al Kalawun - and the First Crusade - Godfrey of Boullion, Baldwin of Boulogne, Bohemund - Sigurd the Jorsala-farer - Barbarossa - Cour de Lion. Ye gods, I could write a century and still have only tapped the reservoir of dramatic possibilities.” (Robert E. Howard to Tevis Clyde Smith, August 1931). Draw a thread of magic and the supernatural through this list and you begin to apprehend the awesome promise of historical escapist fantasy.

A Gathering of Ravens, which debuts Tuesday, June 20th, is pure historical fantasy. The world it inhabits is built from our own: the color, texture, and patina of its foundation is indistinguishable from 10th/11th century Western Europe. Its brush strokes, however, have been altered; threads have been drawn from its canvas and replaced by forgeries wrought of sorcery and myth. It is not just our world, but our world where the magic of the Old Ways – and the creatures that sprang from it – are fading, vanishing before the inexorable tide of Christianity. Where silence reigns in the once-mystical places, and where decay has begun its slow and destructive creep. Where ancient trees that once housed spirits are empty, now, rotted husks awaiting the woodsman’s axe.

I could have created this world whole cloth; digested and distilled history mixed with fancy into a secondary world where Denmark, England, and Ireland existed but under assumed names. That would have been easier, actually. But it also would have severed my connection to thousands of years of shared history. There is an innate sorcery to words burnished by time: the Danemark, Britain, Ériu . . . they resound with a weight of antiquity not commonly shared by words of recent make. From an artistic standpoint, this connection to a shared undercurrent of emotion allows the writer conjure more from a scene with less effort. Here, for example, I introduce the city of Badon (modern Bath):

Badon was an ancient city and its stones reeked of blood. Étaín could smell it: a metallic stench like wet copper mixed with the miasma of damp rot and sulphur – a distillate of the decay and violence which diverse hands had worked into the foundations of the city. A thousand years before Alfred the Great forged the West Saxons into a race of conquerors, the legions of Caesar had come into this land and driven out the native tribes, the Britons and the enigmatic Cruithne. Roman axes laid low the tree-garth of Sulis, fierce goddess of the waters, and Roman priests extinguished the eternal flame that had burned since time out of mind in her sanctuary. Cunning in the ways of stone, these Romans had raised walls of ashlar around the sacred spaces; they had carved a forest of marble dedicated to the healing goddess Minerva, and tamed the hot springs by diverting its mineral-rich flow into artificial lakes and fountains.

But as the wagon trundled through the muddy streets, a sulphurous yellow mist pooling in the low places, what Étaín could see of the Romans’ stone-cunning was not particularly impressive. The city’s walls were as ragged as a crone’s smile. Timber baulks shored up crumbling defensive towers, with palisades of rough planking and crude brickwork plugging fissures torn in the walls from the infrequent convulsions of the earth that shook the region. Huts squatted amid the ruins of Roman villas like scavengers, their broken columns supporting roofs of wood and thatch. Underfoot, a slurry of dung, mud, and chaff covered intricate mosaics; their fanciful and half-glimpsed designs bore the heavy tread of Time, defaced by hoof and by wheel and by hob-nailed boot, the spaces left by shattered cubes of glass and stone filled in with the filth of countless years. Herds of cattle meandered through the once-opulent arcades of the Temple of Minerva to graze in the overgrown ruin of some nobleman’s pleasure garden. And on a hillock overlooking the city, Étaín spied a massive fortification, a walled cathedral still partially sheathed in scaffolding. She apprehended this to be their destination, the haunt of the feared Hrothmund, lord of Badon.

Though it describes a real place – Bath in the heart of Somerset, England – the passage is actually pure fiction. It is inspired by the ruins of Roman-era Bath, but no such place existed as it appears in the example, above. This is the sorcery of historical fantasy: to take a jumble of ancient stones knitted together by the power of a name and restore them to life – but not just mundane life. No, the trick is to weave the enchantment of what never was into the fabric of reality, and to do it with all the elegance and prowess of a master forger.


I leave you with one final thought: even if you reject the argument that the historical past is the finest fantasy world in existence, it is the undisputed source of countless worlds. From the splintered kingdom of Arnor to the pitiless mountains of Cimmeria; from formidable Dros Delnoch to simmering Darujhistan; from Winterfell to Luthadel . . . every fantasy world is descended from the one our ancestors helped create: ancient Earth. A world of gods and monsters, whose deep histories, complex politics, eerie religions, and civilization-shattering wars provide, to paraphrase REH, enough action and drama enough to fill countless volumes of fantasy.

          How Football Can Explain a Divided Europe   

Here are a few of the things that have happened in the past week in Europe:

Two parts of the United Kingdom, Wales and Northern Ireland, played a football game against one another in the 2016 European Championship, as if they were their own separate nations.

An island European nation of approximately 330,000—Iceland—sent about one-tenth of its population on a journey to the banks of the Mediterranean, where their football team, led by a part-time dentist, defeated another region of the United Kingdom—England—that was playing as if it was also its own nation.

A French Republic deeply divided over the question of how—and whether—immigrants from its former colonies and their descendants can be integrated into the Republic cheered on its soccer team, made up largely of the children of African immigrants. That team defeated another European island nation, Ireland.

The game contradicted any notion that there is cosmic justice in the world. In 2009 France had kept Ireland out of the World Cup through one of the most notorious acts of cheating in the modern game, when Thierry Henry scooped the ball with his hand and in so doing set up the winning goal.* An Ireland victory on French soil feels like it would have made things right somehow. But of course that’s rarely how football—or life—actually works.

Belgium, meanwhile scored four goals against Hungary: one by a Flemish player, another by Walloon, a third by the child of Spanish immigrants, and a fourth by the child of immigrants from the Congo. Among the other players on the pitch that day were another child of Congolese immigrants, another whose father is from the French Caribbean island of Martinique, and a Mohawk-sporting child of Indonesian immigrants.

In a week during which the idea of Europe itself has been put to the test, is there a parable in all of this? Can we look to the football pitch to understand what this place—a continent, yes, but also an idea—actually is, and might turn out to be?

There was, first of all, this: an archaeology that helps explain the Brexit vote in the very presence of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland in the knockout round of the tournament.

The fact that three of the regions of the United Kingdom—known, it is true, as “home nations” and tied together by a political compact far older than the European Union—get to play in the tournament is itself an artifact of the vexed relationship Britain has long had with European institutions.

When football’s governing body, FIFA, was formed in 1904 Britain was conspicuously absent, with the English Football Association—along with those of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland—refusing to join. The founding nations of the organization were France, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland, and its lingua franca was French, the acronym from the organization the result of a Franco-English linguistic mash-up: Fédération Internationale de Football Association.

It was only in 1946 that the four British football federations agreed to join what by then had clearly established itself as the leading global institution in football. But they negotiated a return not as one nation but as four. So it is that England, Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland are among the non-nations that exist in FIFA as nations—alongside places like Palestine and New Caledonia—and allow the organization to brag that it has more members than the United Nations. The four also are members of the UEFA, the Union of European Football Associations founded in 1954, which organizes the European Championship.

The United Kingdom, furthermore, holds four seats out of eight on the powerful IFAB, the International Football Association Board, which governs the rules of the game and is the body that determines if any changes will be made to these rules. The other four seats are filled on a rotating basis by FIFA. The United Kingdom, then, are essentially the Permanent Members of this board, whose power is considerable.

At least one of these nations has performed some lovely football here. Fans have been treated to the spectacle of a Welsh team whose play has been one of the highlights of the tournament. Gareth Bale’s stunning goals (and his excellent hair) have been a pleasure to watch. The Welsh fans (along with those from Iceland) seem to best embody what it means to be part of a nation, belting out their nineteenth-century anthem in Welsh, celebrating a “land of poets and singers, and people of stature,” whose “brave warriors” and “fine patriots” are all willing to “shed their blood for freedom,” or at least for football.

 When Wales faces Belgium this Friday in the quarterfinals, it will be an encounter between two entities representing the ironies of contemporary Europe. While Wales feels like a nation, even though it isn’t one, Belgium is a nation that doesn’t really feel like one.

Several decades of profound internal conflict between Flemish and Walloon groups over language, culture and politics have created a curious and in many ways dysfunctional patchwork of bureaucracy in the country.

Immigration has transformed Belgium, with 70 percent of the capital of Brussels born abroad. And that city has been transformed by the project of Europe itself, its central city home to the massive buildings that govern the European Union. The recent terrorist attacks in Brussels have only increased the tensions and uncertainties around the nation’s future.

Belgium’s football success in recent years, however, has been striking: from being one of the lowest-ranked teams on the continent, absent from international competitions, they have now risen to near the top of the FIFA rankings, spending much of this past year as number one. This is the result of a concerted project by the Belgian Football Federation to improve its recruitment and training of young players. They have worked hard to incorporate all of the countries communities, notably immigrants and their children, into the process.

The results are on display each week in the English Premier League, where a series of talented Belgian players play on top teams. Of course having talented players on a team is never enough—as England has shown spectacularly this tournament—if there isn’t a strategy and a sense of cohesion and coherence on the pitch.

The Belgian team is one of a series in Europe today in which players of immigrant background play a prominent role.

This has long been the case of the French team, which has had players of African and North African background on the national team since the 1920s. When they won World Cup at home in 1998—the last time the country hosted a major tournament—they did so with a team famously composed of delightfully multi-ethnic cast of characters, most famously Zinedine Zidane, the child of Algerian immigrants.

More recently the German team has also featured prominent players who are the children of immigrants. Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who played his last games for his nation during this tournament, is the child of a Bosnian father and Croatian mother. Though it was only in 1979 that the English team first included a black player, today they are central, and offered up some of the few bright spots in the lineup during a generally lackluster team performance. The Welsh player Hal Robson-Kanu, meanwhile, is of Nigerian background. Certain teams, however – particularly Italy and Spain—have many fewer children of immigrants on their roster.

I’ll be rooting for Belgium on Friday, and not just because that’s where I was born.

When you cheer on the Red Devils, you can’t forget that you are cheering for an idea rather than a reality, and that in a way that idea only exists on the football pitch.

The Belgium that takes shape on the pitch is actually so far from the nation it purports to represent. The team, at its best, is coherent, bringing together disparate languages and histories, a place where immigrant communities are not just welcome but understood as fundamental to the future of the nation.

With Radja Nainggolan’s Mohawk, striking tattoos, and powerful strikes on goal, Kevin De Bruyne constantly moving about the midfield and sending in his beautiful arcing passes, Axel Witsel lurking dangerous around the box, Romelu Lukaku eternally in front of goal but only rarely actually scoring, Marouane Fellaini permanently on the sidelines but looking strangely happy about it, the team is funny, and fun to watch, taking themselves just seriously enough but not too seriously.

Once upon a time the French team—particularly during its 1998 World Cup run—represented something like this too, and it still does in a sense. But the rounds of hope and disappointment around the team, both about what they could do on the pitch and the extent to which they could change society itself, have now become a bit exhausting in their way.

Each new controversy around race, immigration, and the make-up of the French team just seems like a new act in an interminable and unresolvable drama. But at their best, as in their game against Ireland, they still can deliver a burst of joy through their fluid, attacking play, and the idea of a France vs. Belgium final is certainly an attractive one.

If it comes to that I’ll feel pretty divided, though I’ll probably root for Belgium. It’s not that I harbor a hope that the Belgian team can really change the country. I’m just glad that, for a few hours, we can imagine something different, finding a bit of energy through which to confront the fact that that today’s Europe seems less and less what it could be.

          Anggota DPR Muslim di Denmark Dipanggil 'Monyet dan Babi'   
BINTANGNEWS.com – Ozlem Cekic, anggota DPR Muslim pertama di Denmark, menerima pesan-pesan penuh kebencian hampir tiap minggu, yang biasanya ditulis di halaman Facebooknya.

Pesan-pesan tersebut di antaranya
mengandung kata-kata kotor atau nama-nama binatang seperti monyet dan babi, yang ditujukan untuk menghina Cekic.

Namun Cekic tidak marah, bahkan memutuskan untuk menemui langsung salah seorang haters atau pembenci tersebut, yang bernama Stefan.

"Tidak baik menyebut seseorang monyet," kata Cekic, saat memulai percakapan di rumah Stefan. "Saya bukan rasis, justru sebaliknya," jawab Stefan.

Keduanya duduk berhadapan sambil minum kopi, makanya politikus kelahiran Ankara yang menetap di Denmark sejak belia ini menyebutnya sebagai 'obrolan kopi'.

Obrolan berlanjut dan membahas hal-hal yang lebih serius, termasuk pandangan Stefan, yang menginginkan masyarakat yang bebas dari warga Muslim: bahwa 'orang-orang Islam menghancurkan nilai-nilai dasar Denmark'.

"Ini dimaksudkan sebagai pembuka kesadaran," kata Stefan.
Pria itu menambahkan bahwa dirinya sangat prihatin dengan perubahan yang terjadi di Denmark. "Ketika orang-orang luar berdatangan, mereka tidak bertindak tanduk secara semestinya. Dari sini warga Denmark menjadi sangat marah.

Tak bisa berintegrasi?

Cekic lantas membacakan pesan Stefan yang menuduh ia bertanggung jawab atas pembunuhan. "Ini sama sekali tak bertanggung jawab, punya pola pikir seperti itu... ini gila. Hanya karena saya Muslim," kata Cekic.

Stefan dan Cekic mengobrol selama sekitar 1,5 jam, antara lain diwarnai tangis ketika Stefan mengatakan bahwa pendatang tak bisa menyatu dengan warga Denmark.

"Orang-orang ini tak mungkin terintegrasi. Mereka tidak ingin melakukan hal-hal positif untuk membangun negara dan ini merugikan kami," katanya. Mendengar kalimat ini Cekic berdiri dan menangis.

Obrolan tak bisa dikatakan sepenuhnya bersahabat namun demikian Cekic ingin lagi berkunjung ke rumah Stefan.

Bagi Cekic, dialog adalah salah satu kunci untuk membuka pemahaman. "Ya, saya akan datang lagi menemuinya," kata Cekic.(bbc/bin)

          NEW {Eclectica³ Alison Bomber} with Nikki Acton   
The Beauty of Life by Nikki Acton

Alison Bomber stamps - EAB02 - PaperArtsy - designed by Nikki Acton

How often, when we experiment with a new product, or play about with a new stencil, do we create something that just doesn't really need anything more except perhaps, a thought provoking phrase? Well, it seems to me that Alison's stamps are just the right answer. Be it a background in a journal, texture on a canvas, or perhaps a card for someone special. 

It looks like Nikki has her infusions and stencils out, with Alsion's words giving that perfect finishing touch. Enjoy!

Oh, and here's a reminder of the new stamps Alison has created for us all to enjoy!


All these new products are available from your PaperArtsy stockists now. See the list at the foot of this post.

~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Nikki from Addicted to Art here to share some designs using Alison's wonderful new stamps.

Since I started crafting I have been an admirer of, not only Alison's art, but also her eloquent and inspiring writing. This talent she has is expressed in the beautiful and meaningful quotes she has chosen for her first PaperArtsy stamp sets. 

I found the uplifting words immediately generated imagery in my mind - not necessarily an interpretation of the quotes but of a feeling it evoked.
Alison Bomber stamps - EAB02 - PaperArtsy - designed by Nikki Acton

One of those ideas was images of Monet's Waterlily paintings. I aimed to create a setting for my quote that was a little ethereal; something happy and peaceful for the uplifting words.  

Alison Bomber stamps - EAB02 - PaperArtsy - designed by Nikki Acton

To do this I used Grunge Paste, Fresco Acrylics with matt glaze (to allow blending and increase transparency) and Infusions. The quote from EAB02 - Darkness and Light - was heat embossed so it shines against the chalky background.

Having created my first sample I had to do it again but this time added a quote from EAB01 - Trees and Flowers. You can see how beautifully these stamp!

Alison Bomber stamps - EAB01 - PaperArtsy - designed by Nikki Acton

What I haven't done yet is cut the quotes up and use them like chit chat stickers. This is certainly something I will be doing, allowing me to position the words around a project.

I really am inspired by these stamps! I love that they evoke feelings which, for me, is important in my art.

Nikki

          rockthedub radio 036: The Purge   

Crazy to think one of these hasn't happened since Christmas 2016. Actually, it isn't that crazy; shit's been busy around here. I did make a move recently that'll manifest itself on this here podcast...and beyond.

On this set, I did two things: one, I took my love for certain black YouTubers and constructed a narrative in the first chunk of this podcast, featuring material I've loved from Roc Marciano, Quelle Chris, Deal - The Villain, DANGERDOOM, and others. One the flipside, I felt the Purge of the first section was complimented perfectly by Son Raw's RTDMIX, which is a headfuck of a trek through the '90s hip-hop sound, but in a more underground lens. Trust we.

          : Unsettled north-central Europe - Heat continues south-east, 07 01 - 06:43   

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Isolated thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. Dry and hot for southern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Cooler with some rain and blustery winds around the Baltic.

Sunday Heat builds across Iberia, as high pressure centred between the Azores and Biscay generates a north-easterly flow, meaning areas in the south-west of Spain and Portugal may climb into the upper 30s Celsius. Staying hot across southern Europe as a whole, with searing heat again around the Black Sea with strong sunshine. However, severe thunderstorms are expected to break out across the Balkans, Bulgaria and Romania. Pressure builds for France, bringing a brighter day, although a weak front to the north may give cloudy skies. Patchy rain affects much of central Europe, although amounts generally small and some sunshine is likely. Temperatures 20 to 23C for Germany and Poland. A fall in pressure across Scandinavia brings wind and rain to Norway, heaviest in the west. Blustery winds too for southern Sweden and Denmark, although here it should be dry. Mainly dry around the Baltic, and across Finland.

Third swine flu case confirmed in Florida (see VIDEOS, INTER ACTIVES, PHOTO GALLERY, TRAVEL WARNING, SPECIAL SECTION)Comments 3 Recommend 0
May 03, 2009 11:24:00 AM
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE — A 14-year-old Mexican girl visiting central Florida is the state's third confirmed case of swine flu, health officials said Sunday.
The girl has returned to Mexico, according to Florida's Department of Health.
She has fully recovered and did not spread the swine flu to her family, Orange County Health Director Kevin Sher in told WFTV-TV in Orlando.
"She stayed in her room, wore a mask and took the Tami flu," an anti-flu drug, Sher in said.
A message left Sunday by The Associated Press for an Orange County spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
Florida's first two cases of swine flu were confirmed on Friday: an 11-year-old in Lee County and a high school student in Broward County.
In addition to the three confirmed cases, state health officials said Sunday there were 15 probable cases of swine flu across the state: one each in Alachua, Pinellas, Indian River, Okeechobee, Lee and Clay counties, two each in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties and five in Hillsborough County.
Two charter schools in Miami-Dade County will be closed Monday because a student was found to have a probable case of swine flu.
School district spokesman John Schuster says Doral Academy Charter Middle School and Doral Academy Charter High School were ordered closed after it was found that a middle school student possibly had the disease.
Schuster says the high school was order closed as well because the student may have had access to the high school.
Schuster says that when the schools will reopen will depend on test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 1,800 students attend the two schools.

Key developments on swine flu outbreaks, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and government officials:
— Deaths: 19 confirmed in Mexico and one confirmed in U.S., a 21-month-old boy from Mexico who died in Texas.
— Confirmed sickened worldwide, 872: 506 in Mexico; 197 in U.S.; 85 in Canada; 40 in Spain; 16 in Britain; eight in Germany; four in New Zealand; two in Italy, France, Israel, and South Korea; one each in Colombia; Costa Rica, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Hong Kong, Denmark and the Netherlands.
— Colombia reports South America's first confirmed case of swine flu on Sunday — a day after Costa Rica reports the first case in Central America.
— Countries reporting new cases Sunday — Spain, Germany, Britain, Italy and Columbia.
— Spain becomes hardest-hit nation in Europe with 40 cases, mostly patients in the southern region of Andalusia and five in northeastern Catalan region.
— New case in Britain is Scottish man who recently traveled to Texas but not Mexico, health chief says.
— Two new cases in Germany involve a married couple on same flight as a woman who got swine flu after visiting Mexico.
— Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about a third of confirmed U.S. cases are people who had been to Mexico and likely picked up the infection there.
Hong Kong orders the week-long quarantine of downtown hotel where a Mexican tourist had swine flu, trapping 350 guests and employees inside. The tourist was in stable condition Sunday.
— Mexico orders all nonessential government and private businesses to shut down for five days. All 176 weekend soccer games in Mexico are closed to fans.
— China quarantines over 70 Mexican travelers in hospitals and hotels even though they have no symptoms, sparking outrage from Mexico, which calls the move discriminatory and urges Mexicans not to travel to China.
— U.S. confirmed cases: New York 50; Texas 28; California 24; Arizona 17; South Carolina 13; Delaware 10; Massachusetts eight; New Jersey seven; Maine six; three in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois; two in Kansas, Colorado, Virginia, Michigan, Missouri, Connecticut and Florida. One each in New Hampshire, Utah, Rhode Island, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska and Nevada.
— More than 430 U.S. schools have closed, affecting about 245,000 children in 18 states.
— World Health Organization says slaughtering pigs unnecessary because virus is being spread through humans, and it says a swine herd in Alberta likely was infected by a farm worker who returned from Mexico.
— Three wild boars at Baghdad's zoo are killed because of swine flu fears even though Iraq has no documented cases of swine flu.
Egypt earlier ordered the slaughter of all the country's 300,000 pigs.
— U.S. Meat Export Federation says U.S. pork exports have dropped about 10 percent since the swine flu scare started.

Swine Flu Mask - US Made
          TrailO is an outdoor sport   
Ez a mai nap mottója. A tegnap esti Team Officials Meetingen ezt is megkaptuk szóban / írásban, és miután jártunk már néhány ilyen összejövetelen, sejtettük, hogy ennek a közlésnek oka van. Egyéb jelek is arra mutattak, hogy nem lesz az 1. napi PreO futam sétagalopp – kezdetleges hidak, keskeny ösvény, aminek állapota erősen függ az éjszakai eső mennyiségétől és a tömegtől, hogy ki lehet menni az út szélére, ahol már stabilabb a terep… Igyekeztünk a srácokat nem nagyon megijeszteni, de azért reggel az első dolgunk volt megnézni, nem halasztották-e el a rajtot.
Éjszaka végig esett és reggel is még sokáig, bár egyre kisebb intenzitással. Viktor indult elsőként, Miksának és nekem már tetemes csúszás gyűlt össze a rajtoltatásban. A szó szoros értelmében is csúsztunk, már a pálya előtti időmérő megközelítése sem volt egyszerű. Gondolkodnom kell, hogy indultam-e valaha ilyen körülmények között versenyen; mert esőben már sokszor, de ez a mai pálya egy olyan ösvényen haladt, amin megállt a víz, így képezve folyamatos, hosszantartó dagonyát. Pedig pár hete le is gyalulták valami géppel, hogy jobban megfeleljen a kerekesszékeseknek. Hát, nem hiszem, hogy bármelyikük élvezte volna…
Még a mi dolgunkat is erőst hátráltatta, csúszkáltunk, figyelni és kerülgetni kellett; de a különböző típusú járművekkel mozgó sporttársaknak szörnyű volt. Beragadtak, irányíthatatlanná váltak a székek, a használóik pedig nyakig sárosak. Pedig a kirendelt segítők és rendezők nem kímélték magukat, időnként kisebb válságstáb állt össze, hogy egy-egy megfeneklett széket kimozdítson kétségbeejtő helyzetéből. Nagyon nehéz így koncentrálni, és a jó megoldásokhoz vezető egyik fontos „technikát”, a több irányból megfigyelést emiatt nemigen tudták alkalmazni. Örültek, ha előrehaladtak a következő nézőpontig, a többségnek esze ágában sem volt visszamenni valamit megnézni.
Nagy kár, hogy az időjárás gonoszul belerondított a játékunkba, mert egyébként a két szakaszra bontott, összesen 26 feladatból és két időmérő állomásból álló pálya jó (kifejezetten erre készült) térképen, izgalmas helyeken, kellő térképolvasási kihívással várta a rekordszámú indulót (utóbbi infót a megnyitó ünnepségen tudtam meg).
Az a gond, hogy az openben engedélyezett 140 perc még átlátható, beosztható, de a paralympiai kategóriában két menetben kiosztott összesen 60 perc extra időt (szumma 200 perc) nem lehet kihasználni. Ennyi ideig nem lehet koncentrálni folyamatosan, mozgássérült emberektől ezt pláne nem lehet elvárni, úgy, hogy közben vizet kapnak felülről, sarat alulról.
Egyébként nekem feküdt a terep, élvezetes is lett volna, a feladatokat is épp megfelelő nehézségűnek találtam. Az időmérőkön igyekeztem megfontolt lenni, így sikerült azokat hiba nélkül megúszni. 5 egész másodpercet hagytam a pályában; az időmérés egyébként SI rendszerrel történt. Az egészen ejtett három hibámmal elégedett vagyok. A többiek eredményét még számolási eltérések miatt kifogásolnunk kell. (Minden csúszott a verseny után is, nem volt még este hivatalos eredmény, későn kaptuk csak vissza a kartonunkat, térképeket, korrekciót kérni is csak holnap tudunk.)
Beérve a célban találtam a már fürdés utáni Viktort, és hamarosan érkeztek a többiek is, így közös erővel vetettük alá Miksát és kocsiját a bringásoktól importált módszernek, a slagozásnak.

          See the EXPENSIVE watch that caused the Hushpuppi, Phyno and Iceprince ‘war’   

The watch that caused a fight between Hushpuppi, Phyno and Iceprince costs N39million.
We are all aware that Instagram big boy Hushpuppi, Phyno and Ice prince are currently at loggerheads. Their beef started all because of a watch.
Hushpuppi had initially called out both Iceprince and Phyno for wearing what he called a fake Patek Phillipe watch.
Both Phyno and Iceprince have since answered Hushpuppi. With Phyno saying he doesn’t need to show off a watch because he doesn’t live for Gucci.

According to musician Tunde Ednut, the watch is said to be worth $125,000 (N39, 000,000) (£96,000).
According to Wikipedia, Patek Phillipe is considered by many experts and aficionados to be one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers.
Past owners of Patek Philippe watches include Pope Pius IX, Queen Victoria, Victor Emanuel III of Italy, Christian IX of Denmark, and Albert Einstein.
In fact, one Patek Phillipe watch was bought by Sheikh Saud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al-Thani of the Qatari royal family for $11 million.
He later sold the watch at Sotheby’s Geneva Auction on November 11, 2014 for a record breaking $24 million.

          NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance: The Global Hawk Block 40   
The first of NATO’s five unmanned air vehicles rolled off the factory line in San Diego on Thursday, 4 June 2015.  The Global Hawk Block 40 is part of the Alliance Ground Surveillance Program (AGS).  The NATO-owned and -operated AGS core capability will enable the Alliance to perform persistent surveillance over wide areas from high-altitude long-endurance  aircraft  in any weather or light condition . The system will give commanders a comprehensive picture of the situation on the ground. The AGS system is being acquired by 15 Allies (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the United States). AGS is scheduled to reach initial operational capability by the end of 2017. The air vehicles will be controlled from the main operating centre in Sigonella, Italy.

          Europe forecast: Unsettled north-central Europe - Heat continues south-east, Jul 01 - 06:43   

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Isolated thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. Dry and hot for southern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Cooler with some rain and blustery winds around the Baltic.

Sunday Heat builds across Iberia, as high pressure centred between the Azores and Biscay generates a north-easterly flow, meaning areas in the south-west of Spain and Portugal may climb into the upper 30s Celsius. Staying hot across southern Europe as a whole, with searing heat again around the Black Sea with strong sunshine. However, severe thunderstorms are expected to break out across the Balkans, Bulgaria and Romania. Pressure builds for France, bringing a brighter day, although a weak front to the north may give cloudy skies. Patchy rain affects much of central Europe, although amounts generally small and some sunshine is likely. Temperatures 20 to 23C for Germany and Poland. A fall in pressure across Scandinavia brings wind and rain to Norway, heaviest in the west. Blustery winds too for southern Sweden and Denmark, although here it should be dry. Mainly dry around the Baltic, and across Finland.

          I need a creative copywriter to write less than 200 words slogan - Upwork   
I am looking for a creative copywriter that can assist in completing the slogan below:

"Name 1 person you will bring along for the VIP Brewery Tour to Denmark and why?”

This is a Carlsberg’s Probably the Best Brewery Tour campaign.

Pointers:

1) I would like to bring a good friend of mine to experience the VIP Brewery Tour to Copenhagen, Denmark. The hashtag is #probablythebestbrewerytour

2) Need to include the pointers such as Carlsberg and Copenhagen and things related to Carlsberg and Copenhagen and brewery

3) It can be short slogan but must be creative words  

Please see below the article


What’s Brewing at Carlsberg’s Probably the Best Brewery Tour

“The 170th anniversary of Carlsberg is a chance for us to pay tribute to the beer that is ‘always sharing’. It is all about the science that comes from beer knowledge and the art that brews high quality beers from natural ingredients. Through Probably the Best Brewery Tour campaign, we celebrate Probably the Best Beer in the World, Carlsberg,” Lars Lehmann, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia shared.

“We will reward 20 consumers to explore Carlsberg’s 170 years of beer discoveries in its homeland in Copenhagen and another 1,800 consumers to see, touch, smell and taste the quality natural ingredients of our brews through a VIP brewery tour ex-beer-ience in Shah Alam,” Lehmann added.

The 170 years beer discoveries and innovation
Carlsberg has changed the way the world brewed modern lagers. All this because of J.C. Jacobsen’s obsession to brew the best beer in the world and share all his knowledge (and ways to stabilise Carlsberg’s special yeast called ‘Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis’).

“This is an opportunity to make a toast to the beer that made ground breaking discoveries in the beer landscape. For instance, the Carlsberg Smooth Draught, which is brewed longer for its signature smoothness with an easy finish. It is our latest product innovation specially crafted for consumers to enjoy the smooth sensation of a freshly tapped beer in a bottle or can. We are immensely proud that Carlsberg Smooth Draught is crafted here in Malaysia based on drinkers’ taste preference,” said Charles Wong, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.

Sensory experience to see, touch, smell and taste beer
The media entourage had the chance to see, touch, smell and taste beer at Probably the Best Brew House – a normally restricted area. At the sensory experience room, members of the press were briefed on the aroma of hops, the taste profile of yeast and the look of beer liquid with and without purification.

“Nowadays, there are more discerning beer drinkers who care about what makes of a lager or stout,” said Piotr Zajac, Master Brewer cum Supply Chain Director of Carlsberg Malaysia. "They want to know what are the ingredients used and how it is made."

While many knows that wine comes from grapes, "very few actually know that Carlsberg beer comes from natural quality ingredients – namely malt/barley, hops, yeast and water" said Zajac. “Inviting consumers into our brew house to learn more about the natural quality ingredients and the art of brewing, bottling and packaging is an excellent way to showcase our brews."

Partying the night away at Probably the Best Lounge
Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday party without fun-filled games and beer-tertainment. Members of media enjoyed the newly upgraded Probably the Best Lounge, learning more about Carlsberg beer from the Carlsberg heritage and art of making beer wall murals, playing the electronic dart machine iDarts and electronic beer-table tennis iPong as well as belting out their favorite numbers on the Karaoke machine too.

They also indulged in beer-infused gourmet spread that consists of sautéed penne pasta with trio mushroom and K1664 Blanc cream sauce, roasted chicken wings with Carlsberg pineapple BBQ sauce, Connor’s goulash lamb stew and more. Some took up the challenge and participate in beer-related quizzes while some learned how to pour themselves a perfect pint, enjoyed a night long of probably the best ex-beer-ience.

When Carlsberg does a VIP brewery tour, it is #ProbablyTheBest!

          10 Questions   
Here's something fun for you to do, if you'd like to waste time, keep me informed, or avoid work. I came up with 10 questions. I'll answer them, and I like it if you'd reply with your awswers. Even if you don't, here are the questions:

1. Where was the last place you went out to eat?
I think that the last place that I went was Wig and Pen Pizza, a pizza place in Ankeny. We went there to celebrate after State Large group speech. It was ok. The conversation was the best part. Speech people are the best!

2. What is your favorite item(to bring or to eat) at/for potlucks?
I would have to say that mine is cheesy potatos or Jello. I also end up fighting for the deviled eggs.

3. What was the last book you read and did you enjoy it?
The last book I read completely was Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I enjoyed it immensly, and it was much more gripping than I ever thought it would be. The last book I read on my own was The Help, but I didn't finish it because half way through, I watched the movie. Bad idea, but fantastic book!

4. If you had a vacation right now, where would you go and why?
I would head to Europe, because I could travel around and visit as many countries as possible. I could even practice my spanish in Spain! Denmark would be neat, as well as, well, all of the other countries!

5. What is your proudest accomplishment this month?
I get to go to state with my expository speech for Individual speech. It's in Ames, so it's close!
I also got my actual driver's liscense, either at the beginning of February or the end of January! Woohoo! I've been driving all over!

6. What is your favorite television series?
Mine are Bones and Psych. Bones is about a forensic anthropoligist, and its kind of gorey at times, and Psych is about a guy who works for the LAPD, claiming to be psycic. In reality, his dad just taught him really good observation skill. Psych is much more lighthearted, but both shows are funny!

7. Is there a food that you absolutely hate? What is it?
There are few foods that I really refuse to eat. I don't like getting a dish that I think isn't spicy, but then finding out it is the hard way. I can't stand spicy food!

8. Where is the farthest you have travelled?
I travelled to Wyoming in 3rd grade. I've also gone to Texas twice, and to Ohio once. Yeah, not very far. :/

9. Do you run/walk outside?
I don't right now, but I will as soon as it's nice enough. I fit into the prom dress last year, and that isn't gonna change!

10. Right now, what are you most looking forward to?
I am excited to be done with my NHD project on Wednesday, to go skating and hang out with Eliza on Saturday, and State Speech contest on the 10th!

The first of NATO’s five unmanned air vehicles rolled off the factory line in San Diego on Thursday, 4 June 2015.  The Global Hawk Block 40 is part of the Alliance Ground Surveillance Program (AGS).  The NATO-owned and -operated AGS core capability will enable the Alliance to perform persistent surveillance over wide areas from high-altitude long-endurance  aircraft  in any weather or light condition . The system will give commanders a comprehensive picture of the situation on the ground. The AGS system is being acquired by 15 Allies (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the United States). AGS is scheduled to reach initial operational capability by the end of 2017. The air vehicles will be controlled from the main operating centre in Sigonella, Italy.
          Weer in Europa: Unsettled north-central Europe - Heat continues south-east, 01 jul - 06:43   

Saturday High pressure located to the west of Iberia brings fair weather to much of the peninsula, with north-easterly winds drawing hot air from the interior toward the south-west, highs 33C in the south. Isolated thunderstorms for eastern Spain and the Pyrenees. A few showers for Corsica, Sardinia and northern Italy. Dry and hot for southern Italy. A heatwave continues for Greece and areas surrounding the Black Sea, climbing to 35 to 40C. Low pressure over the southern Baltic drives unsettled and cool conditions across northern-central Europe, with rain affecting Germany, Poland and France, although improving close to the English Channel, across the Low Countries and also Denmark as pressure builds. Pulses of thunderstorms are likely for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and into western Ukraine, advancing north-east. Much of Norway, Sweden and Finland should be dry and warm, widely into the lows 20s Celsius. Cooler with some rain and blustery winds around the Baltic.

Sunday Heat builds across Iberia, as high pressure centred between the Azores and Biscay generates a north-easterly flow, meaning areas in the south-west of Spain and Portugal may climb into the upper 30s Celsius. Staying hot across southern Europe as a whole, with searing heat again around the Black Sea with strong sunshine. However, severe thunderstorms are expected to break out across the Balkans, Bulgaria and Romania. Pressure builds for France, bringing a brighter day, although a weak front to the north may give cloudy skies. Patchy rain affects much of central Europe, although amounts generally small and some sunshine is likely. Temperatures 20 to 23C for Germany and Poland. A fall in pressure across Scandinavia brings wind and rain to Norway, heaviest in the west. Blustery winds too for southern Sweden and Denmark, although here it should be dry. Mainly dry around the Baltic, and across Finland.
