          United Airlines Offering Immigrants Special Flights That Circle U.S. Awaiting Gaps In Travel Ban   

CHICAGO—In response to the executive order restricting entry to the United States from six majority-Muslim nations, United Airlines announced Friday that the carrier will offer immigrants and refugees special flights that continuously circle the country until gaps in the travel ban allow them to land. “We’re excited to offer numerous daily flights from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan to a perpetual holding pattern above the Atlantic Ocean, where international travelers can enjoy a relaxing journey while waiting for a federal court to temporarily suspend the ban,” said United spokesman Karen Jennings, adding that customers attempting to flee their war-torn native countries or just visit their American relatives will be offered onboard meals and a wide array of in-flight entertainment options throughout the voyage up and down the eastern coastline, which may last anywhere from one week to several years depending on the specific terms of the ...

          Hội nghị thượng đỉnh AU chú trọng vấn đề thanh niên, hòa bình   

Hội nghị thượng đỉnh Liên minh châu Phi (AU) lần thứ 29 sẽ diễn ra trong hai ngày 3-4/7 ở thủ đô Addis-Ababa của Ethiopia, với chủ đề chính là “Vai trò của thanh niên trong tăng trưởng toàn diện và bền vững của châu lục."

Tại hội nghị lần này, ngoài chủ đề trọng tâm trên, các nguyên thủ và người đứng đầu chính phủ các nước thành viên AU cũng sẽ thảo luận về vấn đề “tự chủ tài chính”của AU trong thời gian tới.

Trước đó, các cuộc họp lần thứ 34 của Ủy ban đại diện thường trực AU (COREP) đã được tổ chức vào ngày 27-28/6 và cuộc họp Hội đồng chấp hành cấp Bộ trưởng Ngoại giao lần thứ 31 của AU cũng đã khai mạc ngày 30/6.

Ngoài mục đích phát huy những lợi thế to lớn trong việc đầu tư vào giới trẻ, Hội nghị thượng đỉnh AU lần thứ 29 cũng sẽ tập trung thảo luận và giải quyết những vấn đề liên quan hòa bình và an ninh ở châu lục. Đặc biệt là giải quyết khủng hoảng ở 2 quốc gia thành viên là Somalia và Libya, cũng như xem xét việc cải cách tổ chức lớn nhất châu lục này để phát huy hiệu quả hơn trong tương lai.


Hiện Tổng thống Rwanda Paul Kagame là Chủ tịch đương nhiệm của AU. Hội nghị thượng đỉnh AU lần thứ 29 diễn ra trong bối cảnh tỷ lệ thất nghiệp trong đội ngũ lao động trẻ ở châu Phi hiện rất cao, chiếm khoảng 30% tổng lực lượng lao động tại đây.

Đặc biệt, tình hình an ninh, trật tự tại châu lục này đang có chiều hướng phức tạp khi các tổ chức Hồi giáo cực đoan đang gia tăng các hoạt động khủng bố, nhất là Somalia, Niger, Mali, Nigeria …và nền hòa bình mong manh tại Libya, Nam Sudan.

Đặc biệt là cuộc khủng hoảng nhân đạo ở Nam Sudan được coi là tồi tệ nhất châu Phi và thế giới hiện nay với hàng trăm nghìn người có nguy cơ bị chết đói, trong đó có nhiều phụ nữ và trẻ em./.


          Open Air Kabarett in Lengenfeld unterm Stein am Samstag, den 19.08. 2017 um 20.00 Uhr im Schwimmbad   
Open Air Kabarett in Lengenfeld unterm Stein am Samstag, den 19.08. 2017 um 20.00 Uhr im Schwimmbad "Die BarHocker- Sahnestücke aus 17 Jahren Kabarett" „Die BarHocker“- Was zunächst nach einer langweiligen Möbel-Werbung klingt, erweist sich bei näherer Betrachtung als ein wortspielgewaltiges Kabarett aus dem erzgebirgischen Oelsnitz. Das Duo Sascha Wildenhain und Kay Haberkorn („das größte Solo-Kabarett der Welt“) steht seit dem Jahre 2000 gemeinsam auf den hiesigen, regionalen, weltbedeutenden Kleinkunstbühnen dieses Planeten und begeistert seither sein Publikum mit selbsterdachten Texten und/oder eigens fürs Publikum erdichteten, persönlich gezupften Gitarrensongs. Das dabei ein gewisser Selbsterkennungswert im Vordergrund steht, ist für die beiden Protagonisten ebenso selbstverständlich, wie auch hie und da politische Themen auf`s Korn zu nehmen. Vornehmlich beackern die passionierten Hobbyspötter aber das Feld „alltäglicher Unzulänglichkeiten im zwischenmenschlichen Miteinander...“. Dass dabei manchmal dem einen oder anderen das Lachen im Halse steckenbleibt, ist gewollt und Programm! Jedoch sind sie sich auch nicht zu schade, sich selbst dabei gehörig auf die Schippen ihrer dünnen Ärmchen zu nehmen. Als waschechte Erzgebirger frönen Haberkorn und Wildenhain zwar auch ihrer Mundart, sprechen aber ebenso Fremddialekte wie z.B. Hochdeutsch. Ihre Bühnenshow lebt dabei vor allem durch permanent wechselnde Rollen und stets neue, eigens kreierte Figuren, wie „Ilse & Lieselotte“, deren garstige Gatten „Siegfried & Fritz“ oder die ehemaligen Sowjetbürger „Sascha & Sergeij“. Auch ohne das Live-Interview „Der interessante Mensch“ mit wechselnden Protagonisten wird das Duo selten noch von der Bühne gelassen… Im Sinne der Worte von Georg Christoph Lichtenberg - „Sagt, gibt es ein Land außer Deutschland, in dem man die Nase eher rümpfen lernt statt putzen?“ werden natürlich auch Publikanten/-Innen einbezogen. Doch keine Angst! Außer mit...

          Russische Klänge   
Theater&Philharmonie Thüringen
Das Philharmonische Orchester Altenburg-Gera im Konzertsaal der Bühnen der Stadt Gera unter Leitung seines Generalmusikdirektors Laurent Wagner Im 1. Philharmonischen Konzert der neuen Spielzeit 2017/18 am 6. und 7. September um 19.30 Uhr im Konzertsaal der Bühnen der Stadt Gera schlägt das Philharmonische Orchester Altenburg-Gera unter der musikalischen Leitung von Generalmusikdirektor Laurent Wagner russische Klänge an. Die Oktoberrevolution 1917 brachte auch für die Kultur weitreichende Veränderungen mit sich. In der Sowjetunion tätige Künstler wurden in den folgenden Jahrzehnten zensiert, verfolgt, mussten fliehen, leisteten Widerstand oder passten sich den staatlichen Vorgaben an. Auch 100 Jahre später sind die Auswirkungen dieser Ereignisse unverkennbar, in der Rückschau auf Leben und Werk einer großen Komponistengeneration – und in der Rezeption im Westen. Das 1. Philharmonische Konzert stellt dabei beide Seiten gegenüber: die der Opfer und die der (scheinbaren) Täter. Chrennikov, Generalsekretär des Komponistenverbandes der Sowjetunion, setzte die Vorgaben des Machtapparats um. Zugleich engagierte er sich mutig gegen Antisemitismus und schützte verfolgte Komponisten. Mit der deutschen Erstaufführung seines 2. Klavierkonzerts wird der hierzulande eher unbekannte Komponist vorgestellt. Dennoch galt er als klarer Gegner der angeblich formalistischen Musik von Komponisten wie Chatschaturjan und Schostakowitsch, die jedoch wohl v. a. deswegen verfemt waren, weil sie zur musikalischen Elite des Landes gehörten. Mit seinen großen lyrischen Bögen und der inniglichen Melodie verzaubert das Adagio aus dem berühmten Ballett Spartacus von Chatschaturjan seit jeher seine Zuhörer. Schostakowitschs 13. Sinfonie Babi Jar entstand in der Tauwetterperiode nach Stalins Tod. In der Schlucht Babi Jar erschoss 1941 ein SS-Kommando 34000 Juden. Das Mitfühlen mit den Opfern wird verknüpft mit der Anklage gegen russische Antisemiten. Die Uraufführung 1962 wurde zum tönenden Appell für ein friedliches Miteinander. Jascha Nemtsov, Solist des Klavierkonzerts, ist Professor für Geschichte der jüdischen Musik an der...

Roku TV devices still banned in Mexico

A Mexican tribunal has upheld a ban on the import of Roku streaming devices in the country, citing piracy.

Cable TV provider, Cablevision, had successfully managed to have the import and sale of Roku streaming devices banned in the country on the grounds that some owners are using them for illegal television streaming. Roku did manage to have that order suspended for a few days, but has now suffered another setback.

This week, a Mexico City tribunal upheld the initial import ban, keeping it illegal to sell devices from California-based Roku in the country.

"Cablevision cannot allow the content that it licenses from domestic and foreign companies to be illegally used," Cablevision spokeswoman Maria Eugenia Zurita told Reuters.

"We would also like Roku Inc to better supervise the use of its software so that it's not used inappropriately."

Roku devices are set-top media boxes that are intended to be used with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Starz and plenty of other legal streaming services on the Internet. In recent years, such devices have fueled a growth in cord-cutting, the practice of dropping cable and satellite television services in favor of online streaming services.

Not all services are legal, of course, and devices can be modified and configured to access illegal streaming services. According to the Reuters report, Roku owners in Mexico are frequently contacted by providers of illegal television streaming services offering them cheap packages of hundreds of television channels, without appropriate permission and licensing.

Roku does not advertise its products for illegal use, and rulings that ban digital media products due to their misuse by some customers could have terrible consequences. Roku is keeping optimistic about the future of its products in Mexico, however.

"Today's decision is not the final word in this complex legal matter, and it is not expected to prevent consumers from purchasing Roku products in Mexico at this time," Roku General Counsel Steve Kay said.

          Kickstarter success RuuviTag is now available, first batch almost gone overnight   

Kickstarter success RuuviTag is now available, first batch almost gone overnight

A Finnish startup by the name Ruuvi introduced its Bluetooth beacon project to the internet in a Kickstarter campaign last summer. In mere hours the campaign was funded and in the end it crushed its goal with pre-orders exceeding $170 000.

Now the company has officially released the product, which according to their press release came quicker than expected. Since yesterday's launch RuuviTag has been selling like hotcakes. The founder of Ruuvi, Lauri Jämsä, told us that the demand has been so high that the supply has almost been depleted.

In the upcoming batches the company aims more and more in the B2B markets where orders might exceed a thousand units.

RuuviTag is a small Bluetooth 4.2 beacon that has radio and NFC connectivity as well as a multitude of sensors that can measure temperature, relative air humidity, air pressure, and acceleration. It can be used as a Eddystone or iBeacon, and the RuuviLab community has already created a variety of applications, including the likes of portable weather station and vehicle locator. Of course because it's open source platform anyone can join in.

You can buy RuuviTag's from the company's website where they sell for 69 euros (approx. $79) per 3 beacons plus shipping.

          vakantiehuisje in Zelhem, Nederland : Het Kruisselt voor 6 personen   
vakantiehuisje : Het KruisseltEen bijzondere en authentieke vakantiewoning in Zelhem door de rijke geschiedenis van dit gemeentelijk monument. Het vakantiehuis is een voormalige opzichterswoning uit 1920 en is gelegen aan de bosrand van landgoed ’t Zand in Zelhem. Het vakantiehuis heeft een enorme tuin waarin u veel vogels kunt horen fluiten. Vanuit de tuin kunt u direct uw boswandeling starten. Het huis heeft een authentieke keuken die voorzien is van alle luxe apparatuur van nu. De woonkamer is voorzien van een zithoek met houtkachel. Vanwege de landelijke ligging is het TV signaal onbetrouwbaar, vandaar dat u ook de beschikking heeft over een DVD-speler. Op het terras geniet u van het zicht op de enorme tuin en komt u helemaal tot rust met alle natuur om u heen. Zelhem staat bekend als het groene hart van de Achterhoek waar u kunt genieten van de rust en ruimte. In de regio kunt u prachtige wandel- en fietstochten maken. Bronckhorst, de gemeente waar Zelhem onderdeel van uitmaakt, wordt bestempeld als het kleinste stadje van Nederland. Hier vindt u veel gerestaureerde boerderijen die nu fungeren als galerie, winkel of restaurant. Ook de Hanzesteden Doesburg, Zutphen of Deventer liggen relatief dichtbij.

          vakantiehuisje in Eefde, Nederland : Remise Landgoed 't Haveke voor 2 personen   
vakantiehuisje : Remise Landgoed 't HavekeDit sfeervolle appartement ligt midden in het Gelderse plaatsje Eefde, op Landgoed 't Haveke. Het is in 2008 gerenoveerd en biedt met de zandtinten en geoliede houten vloer een prettige sfeer. Het kleine terras bij de ingang nodigt uit om heerlijk te ontspannen in de schaduw van de lindebomen. In de voormalige moestuin staat nog een terras ter beschikking. De remise hoort bij het in 1860 gebouwde herenhuis en is omgeven door een schitterend, 14 hectare groot, Engels landschapspark met bos en verzorgde gazons. Kilometerslange wandelpaden voeren door het park dat tegenwoordig een natuurmonument is. Overdag is het park vrij toegankelijk voor publiek. De eerste vermelding van Landgoed 't Haveke dateert uit 1481 toen ene Herman ter Havick zijn vrouw als huwelijkscadeau het huis gaf, samen met een groot geldbedrag. Rond 1860 werd het oude huis afgebroken en het nieuwe "Het Haveke" gebouwd. In 1948 kwam het landgoed in bezit van de familie van de Graven van Rechteren-Limpurg-Speckfeld. Enkele jaren geleden erfden de huidige eigenaren het huis. De plaats Eefde grenst aan de Gorsselse Hei, een uitgestrekt natuurgebied waar u heerlijk kunt wandelen en fietsen. De Hanzesteden Deventer (8km) en Zutphen (3,5km) liggen in de directe omgeving en zijn absoluut een bezoek waard. Op het landgoed ligt ook de vakantiewoning "Koetshuis 't Haveke" (NL-1294) die eventueel samen met dit appartement te huur is.

          Esclarecimento a Igreja Apostólica.    
O Conselho Deliberativo da Igreja Apostólica


A Igreja Apostólica hoje é formada pelo povo apostólico e bem como a sua direção terrena uma irmandade realmente alimentada pela valiosa graça de Deus e de seus santos.

Quero aqui em poucas palavras esclarecer que os nossos conselheiros estão fazendo a sua parte quanto a manutenção estrutural e organizacional da igreja e mantendo a originalidade de sua doutrina e disciplina dando a amplitude que esse evangelho merece e precisa.

Após a ida do Irmão Aldo, nosso santo Primaz aos céus, o ministério, atendendo a legislação pertinente em vigor neste país estabeleceu e nomeou o Conselho Deliberativo para fazer parte da direção administrativa deste trabalho para colocarmos em andamento o evangelho de Jesus e nos dado pela Santa Vó Rosa amada e venerada.

Quero aqui em poucas palavras dizer que se eles (conselho da igreja) coloca uma nota no boletim é por que a mesma é VERDADE. Se não fosse com certeza eles não iria colocar nenhuma nota no mesmo.

A uma conversa maliciosa circulando nas redes sociais, e com uma certa malicia, mafiosa até certo ponto, dando cinta de que esses artigos publicados no boletim são uma forma insegura. Não podemos brincar com coisa séria.

Acredito muito nas pessoas que formam o atual conselho da Igreja Apostólica e tenho plena confiança em seu nobre trabalho, tanto é que nesses três anos de atuação destes irmãos e justamente com a irmã Efigênia que também forma esse colegiado tem feito de tudo para promover e propiciar as plenas condições para o desenvolvimento sólido e perene desta instituição religiosa. Quero ressaltar que nisso tudo devemos ter prudência para engradecer esse trabalho magnifico e não dar créditos aos falatórios profanos e incertos, duvidosos, mas acatar a orientação do nosso boletim interno oficial.

De qualquer forma, vale aqui ressaltar que aquilo que você vê ou lê em rede social muitas vezes não é verdade. Isso pode ser uma armação de alguém contra a instituição. Devemos crer naquele que esta citando de forma oficial a informação e não conforme os que na verdade não estão com ela.

Para exemplo: nessa semana noticiaram a morte de uma senhora daqui da região, esposa de um pastor nosso, quando fomos verificar a veracidade da informação, era alarme falso, assim também aconteceu umas duas semanas antes. Então, não caia em armadilhas disso ou daquilo. Seja esperto como uma serpente, mas humilde como uma pomba.

Amados, a informação foi passada, espero que você medite nela com carinho e seriedade.

O Conselho da Igreja Apostólica esta lutando para o bem da mesma, e, portanto sejamos colaboradores destes irmãos que fazem de tudo pela nossa igreja e sugamos para os céus. O Primaz Santo Irmão Aldo espera de cada apostólico esta consideração e amor a Deus e a nossa obra apostólica. Não caia em falácias e mentiras que criam por aí, especialmente entre grupos de apostólicos, que muitos desses integrantes estão se infiltrando pessoas do contra!! Nem sempre o que estão falando e escrevendo é verdade, inda mais na rede social que é livre e todos querem falar e muitas vezes inventam histórias.

Eu espero que estas palavras sejam uma orientação zelosa a todos os nossos internautas e a toda a irmandade apostólica espalhada pelo Brasil e pelo mundo afora.

Paz do Senhor a todos.

Assina e subscrevo-me;

The authors of the paper, students from several of the leading medical schools in the country, express grave concerns about the normalisation of euthanasia
          Functional Jobs: OCaml server-side developer at Ahrefs (Full-time)   

What we need

Ahrefs is looking for a backend developer with a deep understanding of networks, distributed systems, OS fundamentals and taste for simple and efficient architectural designs. Our backend is implemented mostly in OCaml and some C++, as such proficiency in OCaml is very much appreciated, otherwise a strong inclination to intensively learn OCaml in a short term will be required. Understanding of functional programming in general and/or experience with other FP languages (F#,Haskell,Scala,Scheme,etc) will help a lot. Knowledge of C++ and/or Rust is a plus.

Every day the candidate will have to deal with:

  • 10+ petabytes of live data
  • OCaml
  • linux
  • git

The ideal candidate is expected to:

  • Independently deal with bugs, schedule tasks and investigate code
  • Make argumented technical choice and take responsibility for it
  • Understand the whole technology stack at all levels : from network and userspace code to OS internals and hardware
  • Handle full development cycle of a single component - i.e. formalize task, write code and tests, setup and support production (devops), resolve user requests
  • Approach problems with practical mindset and suppress perfectionism when time is a priority
  • Write flexible maintainable code and adapt to post-launch requirements’ tweaks

These requirements stem naturally from our approach to development with fast feedback cycle, highly-focused personal areas of responsibility and strong tendency to vertical component splitting.

Who we are

Ahrefs runs an internet-scale bot that crawls the whole Web 24/7, storing huge volumes of information to be indexed and structured in a timely fashion. Backend system is powered by a custom petabyte-scale distributed key-value storage to accommodate all that data coming in at high speed. The storage system is implemented in OCaml with thin performance-critical low-level part in C++. On top of that Ahrefs is building various analytical services for end-users.

We are a small team and strongly believe in better technology leading to better solutions for real-world problems. We worship functional languages and static typing, extensively employ code generation and meta-programming, value code clarity and predictability, and are constantly seeking to automate repetitive tasks and eliminate boilerplate, guided by DRY and following KISS.

          Crash d’Air Algérie en 2014 : la compagnie espagnole Swiftair inculpée en France   
La compagnie espagnole Swiftair a été inculpée, hier, dans l’enquête en France sur le crash d’un avion d’Air Algérie, dans lequel 116 personnes avaient péri en 2014, les juges soupçonnant d’importants manquements dans la formation des pilotes, selon des sources judiciaires et proches du dossier. La compagnie de leasing a été mise en examen pour «homicides involontaires par maladresse, imprudence, inattention, négligence ou manquement à une obligation de prudence ou de sécurité», a précisé à une des sources. Il s’agit de la première mise en examen dans cette affaire. Le 24 juillet 2014, un McDonnell Douglas, loué par Swiftair à Air Algérie, s’était écrasé dans le nord du Mali avec à son bord 110 passagers, dont 54 Français, et six membres d’équipage, tous espagnols. D’après une expertise judiciaire rendue en décembre dernier, le crash a été provoqué par la non-activation du système antigivre des sondes moteur par les pilotes alors que les conditions météorologiques requéraient sa mise en place. Le givrage des sondes a conduit à une diminution de la vitesse de l’appareil, puis à son décrochage qui n’a pas pu être rattrapé. Ce scénario est aussi celui retenu par le Bureau d’enquêtes et d’analyses (BEA) en France dans un rapport rendu en avril 2016. Les conclusions des experts sont sévères pour la compagnie. A leurs yeux, l’entraînement au sol et sur simulateur «insuffisant et incomplet» des deux pilotes contribue à expliquer qu’ils «n’ont pas détecté ou très tardivement» la perte de vitesse de l’appareil ainsi que leur «manque de réaction adaptée» quand il a commencé à décrocher. Le fait que les deux pilotes, tous les deux saisonniers, ne volaient que quelques mois par an avec de longues périodes d’interruption a aussi contribué à «rabaisser leur niveau de performances face à des situations inusuelles», ajoutent-ils. «Ni le BEA français ni les magistrats espagnols, qui ont aussi diligenté une enquête, n’ont retenu la responsabilité de Swiftair qui ne peut comprendre être mise en examen aujourd’hui en France pour les mêmes faits», ont réagi ses avocats Sébastien Schapira et Marion Grégoire.

          2017-07-01 - Commento di sabato   
Signore non sono degno... ma se vuoi... ||| La fede del centurione, che non è ebreo, sorprende Gesù, che nel suo popolo non trova una "fede così grande". E infatti i lontani entreranno nel regno di Dio, i vicini ne saranno esclusi a motivo della loro incredulità, infedeltà. Potremmo essere anche noi gli esclusi se, ricevuto l'annunzio del Vangelo, l'abbiamo rifiutato poi nella vita concreta. Quanto a Gesù che guarisce il servo del centurione e altri infermi, appare come il Servo di Dio, che si addossa le infermità dell'uomo e le guarisce. In profilo vediamo la passione del Signore, il suo servizio che redime l'uomo, dai mali terreni ma soprattutto dal peccato. Ogni volta che partecipiamo alla messa, prima della comunione, ripetiamo le stesse parole del centurione. "Signore, non sono degno di partecipare alla tua mensa: ma di' soltanto una parola ed io sarò salvato. Infatti mai saremo degni della dignità divina. Ma è la sua parola, anzi il Verbo, la Parola - Gesù che ci ha reso degni, nonostante la nostra indegnità di poter ospitare Dio nel nostro cuore.

          El BCRA crea un tipo de cuenta bancaria que solo permitirá hacer compras con tarjeta de débito (La Nación)   


Busca formalizar los pagos y dotar a personas y empresas de un instrumento para un mejor control de los gastos de la denominada "caja chica"; no está habilitada para hacer extracciones en cajeros


El Banco Central (BCRA) creó ayer un nuevo tipo de cuenta bancaria con la que apunta a facilitarle el control de pagos a las familias y de la denominada "caja chica" a las empresas o comercio ya que, aunque puede manejarse con una tarjeta de débito, no permitirá la extracción de dinero en efectivo.

"Es una cuenta específica para compras, los fondos que allí se depositen solo tendrán ese fin. Su apertura podrán solicitarla tanto las personas físicas como las jurídicas, aunque no será obligatorio para las entidades ofrecer este producto", confiaron a LA NACION desde el ente monetario.


La cuenta "para compras", además de su titular, tendrá un habilitado más a usarla ya que la idea es que la tarjeta de débito que la acompaña sea un instrumento de utilidad para que, por caso, las empresas puedan controlar los movimientos y gastos que encargan a un cadete, o los padres puedan confiársela a un menor sin riesgo a que extraiga el dinero y pueda darle otros fines. "Para depositarle fondos con los que hacer las compras al albañil que contrataste o para que la maneje el personal doméstico ya que es exclusiva para cancelar compras y está pensada para cancelaciones con débito, básicamente", insistieron.

Foto: Archivo

Se trata de un instrumento más en busca de facilitar los pagos on line y desalentar el uso de efectivo, de manera de ayudar a formalizar más las operaciones, cuya creación validó en su reunión de ayer el directorio del BCRA.

La circular que oficializa el nuevo tipo de cuenta, con sus detalles operativos, se dará a conocer en el día de hoy por lo que se estima que las entidades interesadas en desarrollarla podrán estar ofreciendo este producto en algunas semanas.

          10 Low-key Bangkok Hipster Cafes To Give All Your Friends #FOMO   

Bangkok hipster cafes for globe-trotting café-hoppers with UOB YOLO People say listen to your body to know when to eat. On our trip to Bangkok last year, my friends and I discovered that growling stomachs weren’t the only tell-tale sign – our feet were screamingly sore from hours of browsing clothing racks, and of course we responded by taking refuge in the city’s many hipster cafes.   For those planning to hit up the City of Angels, here’s a list of cafés that’ll surely come in handy in the homestretch of your shopping expedition. These Insta-worthy cafés promise photos for the ‘gram that aren’t replicas of all the other #bkkthrowback shots on your feed, and tasty food to boot. For those with a UOB YOLO, you’ll also get to score an 8% rebate* when you dine at these spots during the weekends! 1.

          Pepper Bowl Review: Black Pepper Beef Bowl Stall In The CBD With Nothing More Than $5   

Pepper Bowl serves peppery rice bowls at $5 or less Growing up with the ultimate Asian parents not only meant insane academic expectations and grueling piano lessons, but also tons of rice during dinner. I’m not complaining though, ‘cause I’m a carb lover and while other girls call their Beauty Blender a #holygrail, mine has gotta be starchy white rice. Even though many queue up for fish soup whenever they’re at Amoy Street Food Centre, it was Pepper Bowl that caught my attention. A bed of rice topped with stir-fried meat in gravy and onsen egg is not something I can easily resist. Plus, there’s nothing more than $5 here! Food at Pepper Bowl Black Pepper Beef Rice ($5) might not be the most visually appealing dish, but carrying this back to the table already got me salivating from its sheer fragrance, and I couldn’t wait to dig in. It’s made up of white rice covered in beef and onions, and dotted with flecks of black pepper.  The juicy and caramelised onions gave this dish a mild sweetness that balanced out the slight heat from the black pepper. The beef itself was chewy, and had a good fat-to-meat ratio. I enjoyed how the smokey, […]

Michelin Guide 2017 includes 11 newly awarded restaurants Odette received two stars in this year’s Michelin Guide. The bulk of this year’s list of Bib Gourmand restaurants is made up of the same spots as last year’s inaugural list, so we were expecting the Michelin Guide 2017 to be same same but different compared to the Michelin Guide 2016 too. Well, in the list that just came out, 11 new names were awarded one Michelin star, and two restaurants – Forest 森 and Terra – dropped out of this year’s guide.

          10 Tiong Bahru Market Stalls To Return To Including Their Famous Char Kway Teow   

Tiong Bahru Market reopens with your favourite stalls The last time I popped by Tiong Bahru Market, I was greeted by closed shutters and a boarded-off market. A banner strung across read that it was closed for renovations, which to me meant, “Goodbye for now, monthly lor mee!” Of course, there are plenty of other Tiong Bahru hawker food options, but I had a specific craving for the market’s food that day. This time, I did my research before heading down to chow down on all the food my body had missed out on for three months. Here are 10 stalls in Tiong Bahru Market that I will always return to, no matter how long the renovation period. 1. Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow Although the $2 option seems to be gone, a plate of Fried Kway Teow ($3) from Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow still promises moist and savoury noodles with a slight hint of sweetness. Accompanying the base were slices of fish cake, lapcheong, bean sprouts, and cockles, which were fresh and juicy. This is a plate that can curb all your char kway teow cravings. Stall number: #02-11 Opening hours: Thur-Tue 11am to 10:30pm 2. Jian Bo […]

          Chen’s Mapo Tofu Review: Affordable Japanese-Sichuan Donburi By A Michelin-starred Chef   

Chen’s Mapo Tofu dishes out bowls of Sichuan donburi I’m not a huge fan of Sichuan cuisine, ‘cause it brings back bad memories of my first and last ma la experience where I basically went into shock from the spices and numbing heat. I did, however, manage to let go of my past animosity with Sichuan food after stumbling upon Chen’s Mapo Tofu. Offering Sichuan cuisine with a Japanese twist, this one-month old restaurant is opened by Michelin-starred chef Chen Kentaro. Food at Chen’s Mapo Tofu To get the best of both worlds, we ordered Set Meal 2 ($10.80), which came with Mapo Don, Dan Dan Mien, and a drink. We picked Sour Plum Drink (U.P. $3), which turned out too tart for our liking. Though Mapo Don looks like a mountain of mush on first sight, you’ll find a bed of rice under all that cubed tofu.   Being a spice wimp, I expected myself to tear up after a few mouthfuls when I saw bits of peppercorn mixed into the gravy. Surprisingly, this dish proved to be largely manageable, with the flavour of fermented beans masking some of the spiciness. It was only when I reached the halfway […]

          7 Ways To Tell You’re Getting Legit Japanese Soba At A Restaurant   

Legit soba tastes different from store-bought ones At a soba appreciation workshop weeks ago, I tasted the best soba of my life. It was the kind of meal that ruins any other for you. My mind flashed to the soba I used to order at Japanese chain restaurants as a kid; its limp, out-of-the-packet nature became more acute in contrast to the soba masters’ fresh and springy noodles at the workshop. As far as three-ingredient recipes go, soba may be one of the most complicated. Soba masters must take even the slightest things into account, such as the traffic of diners into their restaurant as the air changes with repeated openings of the door, affecting the dough. That’s one reason why many restaurants choose to serve fuss-free factory-made noodles. If you’re searching for legit, handmade soba, here are seven ways to tell if you’ve found it. 1. The noodles should have a high percentage of buckwheat flour Originally, Japanese noodles were made entirely with buckwheat flour to give the noodles as much fragrance as possible. But making soba is one of the few occasions when giving 100% doesn’t yield an ideal result. Buckwheat is gluten-free, so pure buckwheat dough is […]

          SAMA Curry & Cafe Review: Hokkaido Soup Curry With 30 Levels Of Spiciness   

SAMA Curry & Cafe serves customisable Japanese soup curry Unlike many Singaporeans, my low tolerance for spicy food has prevented me from enjoying popular dishes such as ma la, sambal stingray, curry chicken… you get the idea. Thankfully, I’ve got Japanese curry, which manages to be both comforting and tummy-warming – sans the spicy burn. Hailing from Hokkaido, SAMA Curry & Cafe dishes out soup curry, which is a less jelak variation of Japanese curry that is a rare find in Singapore. The restaurant lets you customise your curry by choosing from four different soup bases – tomato, coconut, shrimp, and chicken – and 30 different levels of spiciness. Food at SAMA Curry & Cafe We eased into our first Japanese soup curry experience with Hungry Bear ($18.90+). We went with a tomato soup base at spiciness level five. This hearty bowl came with an entire chicken leg, vegetables, half an egg, and your choice of a beef hamburger patty or a slice of chashu pork. The tomato soup gave the curry a pleasantly sweet flavour without any overwhelming acidity. Unlike conventional thick Japanese curry, this was much less viscous and had the consistency of a light stew. All of […]

          SIXBYSERA Review: Chilli Crab, Milo Dinosaur, And Cheesecake Croissants At Farrer Park   
sixbysera - feature

SIXBYSERA puts familiar fare into croissants If you ask me what my ideal date involves, my immediate answer would be indulging in a slow weekend brunch at a quiet cafe, and having endless conversations while enjoying the food. The new SIXBYSERA offers just that, with their savoury donuts and interesting croissants. Tucked in a quiet spot along Rangoon Road away from other bustling cafes, all the dishes at this five-month-old cafe are priced at $13 or less, so don’t worry about burning too big a hole in your pocket if you’re intending to pay for bae’s meal!     Food at SIXBYSERA As an avid croissant lover who enjoys trying various unique croissants with my mum, chilli crab croissant is not new to me. SIXBYSERA’s Chilli Crab Sauce ($11.90) is, however, presented in an entirely different manner from the usual. This weekend special has a croissant sliced in half and placed atop a pool of chilli crab sauce, complete with a sunny side up. Buttery and flaky, this croissant is exactly what a good croissant should be. Though left sitting in the sauce for a while, it still managed to retain its fluffy interior and crisp exterior. The chilli crab sauce […]

          10 Epic Cheese Dishes For That Winning #CheesePull Shot On Instagram   

Epic cheese dishes to whip out your phones for Being a foodie and a slave to Instagram means I gotta whip out my phone for the slightest reasons at every meal – especially when it comes to capturing those #foodporn-worthy shots. Based on my Instagrammin’ experience, I found out nothing tops a cheese-pull shot when you want to achieve the ultimate drool-inducing picture. Word of advice: do not upload pictures of these epic cheese dishes in the middle of the night, or you might risk being at the receiving end of your friends’ wrath at your next gathering.   1. Dookki’s Double Cheese Ring Living up to their name, which translates to “two meals” in Korean, Dookki is the first restaurant in Singapore to offer tteokbokki buffet and DIY kimchi fried rice in one seating. $18.80++ gets you 90 minutes of unlimited tteok and noodles in a customisable sauce, along with eomuk (fishcake), kimchi fried rice, and deep-fried sides such as mandu (dumplings). To make the most of your time, add a Double Cheese Ring ($9.80) to your pot. This cheese ring comes with corn that’s mixed into a “secret” cheese. Be sure to keep an eye on the heat […]

          DOJO Review: Japanese Inspired Burgers And Rice Bowls Under $10 In Town   

Affordable burgers and rice bowls in town at DOJO Finding good, inexpensive food in town can be a struggle, especially if your group doesn’t want to settle for the same ol’ fast food (again). Thankfully, DOJO dishes out pork burgers and hearty rice bowls in Somerset for under $10. If you’re looking for a satisfying bite in town that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, DOJO will be your answer to an affordable, meaty meal. Food at DOJO DOJO specialises in pork burgers, with the juicy pork patties all made with house special seasoning – sans fillers, MSG, or added preservatives. Kaiju ($8) was the first burger that caught my eye on the menu, especially because I believe you can never go wrong with the familiar mushroom-cheese combination. To make it a more complete meal, we topped up another $3.90 for a Standard Upgrade, which includes fries and a canned drink.   This burger came with a substantial pork patty slathered with a cheesy sauce made with chopped shiitake, champignon and paddy straw mushrooms, all sandwiched between two toasted buns. The patty itself was juicy and slightly pink in the middle. Though it wasn’t tough, the meat had varying […]

전체 길이는 최대 40 cm 정도로, 같은 다트눈의 꽁치와 잘 닮은 홀쪽한 체형을 하고 있다.사요리과일반의 특징으로서 아랫턱이 길게 쑥 내밀어, 웃턱은 작은 삼각형의 변장 너무 밖에4 겉껍데기, 이 일견 언밸런스한 형태의 구기의 적응적 의의는 잘 모른다.단지, 같은 트비워상과의 트비워류도, 치어 때에 같은 아랫턱의 신장이 일어나는 것이 알려져 있다.이 아랫턱의 첨단은 살아 있을 때는 붉다.등은 청록색이지만 복측은 은빛에 빛나, 근육은 반투명이다.

복막은 새까맣고 일반적으로 「외관에 의하지 않고 음험한 사람」의 대명사로 여겨지기도 하지만, 이것은 근육이 반투명으로 빛을 투과 하기 쉬운 생선에 잘 볼 수 있는 현상으로, 아마 복강내에 빛이 투과 하는 것을 막는 적응으로 보여진다.이와 같이 복막이 검은 잉어과의 담수어 하크렌으로는, 성장에 수반해 음식이 동물 플랑크톤으로부터 식물플랑크톤으로 이행하는 시기에 급속히 복막이 흑변 하는 것이 알려져 있지만, 이 이행 시기에 강한 닛코를 받으면, 소화관에 받아들여진 식물플랑크톤이 광합성을 실시해 산소의 기포가 발생해, 소화관이 부풀어 올라 수면에 배를 위로 해 떠오르는 등의 장해가 발생하는 것이 보고되고 있다.사요리도 후술과 같이 성장에 따라서 해조도 먹게 되기 위해, 혹은 섭식 한 해조의 광합성을 억제하는 의미가 있을지도 모른다.

연안성으로, 가라후토의 서쪽에서 대만에 걸친 북서 태평양, 일본해, 황해, 발해 만의 육지 근해에 분포한다.해면 스쳐 스쳐를 떼를 지어 헤엄쳐, 동물 플랑크톤을 포식 하거나 부유 하는 해조의 단편을 섭식 한다.위험을 느끼면 자주(잘) 공중에 점프 한다.사요리과에는 담수역에까지 침입하는 종이 많이 알려지지만, 사요리는 기수역까지는 진입하는 것의 순담수역에까지는 진입하지 않는다.

4월 중순부터 8월 중순이 산란기이며, 무리로 해초가 밀생하는 장소에 비집고 들어가, 송사리의 알을 닮은 직경 2.2 mm정도의 굵은 알을, 점착실로 해조나 해초에 휘감기게 한다.부화 직후의 자어는 전체 길이 7 mm정도로, 이것이 2.5 cm정도까지 성장하면 아랫턱의 신장이 시작된다.아랫턱은 일단 성어보다 전체 길이비로 길게 신장하지만, 점차 몸의 다른 부분의 성장이 현저해져, 전체 길이 27 cm정도가 되면, 거의 성어와 같은 프로포션이 된다.수명은 2년남짓이라고 생각되고 있다.

어획・이용

 
사요리의 쥠스시

봄부터 가을에 걸쳐 어획 되지만, 은 3월부터 5월에 걸쳐로 여겨진다.생선회, 스시구나, 완이구나, 튀김, 소금구이, 건어물 등에 요리되어 흰자위의 고급어로서 다루어진다.생선회 등 비가열로 조리할 때는, 세워 소금으로 하면 특색의 단맛이 두드러진다고 여겨진다.낚시의 대상어라고 해도 선호되어 관동에서는 일반적인 우키 낚시나 후카세 낚시해, 칸사이에서는 시모리나 련타마로 불리는 우키가 3~10개 늘어선 장치가 잘 이용된다.바다에서 강에 거슬러 올라가기도 해 (대)장대에 낚싯줄을 쳐 궁상으로 해 실을 강에 가라앉혀 수면을 소상 하는 사요리를 걸어 낚시하기도 한다.

중국에서도, 산둥성에서 「침량어(간체자□) 첸리안유」, 「마 보어(□□□) 마브유」라고 칭하고, 발해 만이나 황해에서 어획 되어 유통하고 있다.중국어의 표준명은 「소비늘□(□□) xiaolinzhen 시아오린첸」.

          MKUTANO WA KITAIFA WA WADAU WA ELIMU NA CHAMA CHA WALIMU WAFANYIKA JIJINI DAR   

Mwakilishi kutoka Mtandao wa Kodi Tanzania (TTJC), Grace Masalakulangwa akiwasilisha ripoti ya utafiti ya One Billion Question iliyotafitiwa na shirika la ISCEJIE katika Mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa Elimu na Wenyeviti wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
Afisa Mradi wa Elimu kutoka TENMET, Alistidia Kamugisha akifungua mkutano na kuwaelezea malengo ya mkutano huo wa siku mbili kwa wadau wa elimu na Chama cha Walimu Tanzania uliofanyika katika ukumbi wa Hoteli ya Blue Pearl jijini Dar es Salaam.
 Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania (TENMET), Cathleen Sekwao akitoa mada kuhusu umuhimu wa ukusanyaji wa rasilimali za ndani na kuwekeza katika kuboresha sekta ya elimu hususani kwa mtoto wa kike na maslahi ya walimu katika mkutano uliowakutanisha wanachama wa chama cha walimu Tanzania (CWT/TTU).
Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe akiwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, upungufu wa walimu kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa elimu pamoja baadhi ya viongozi wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
  Baadhi ya wadau wa elimu nchini Tanzania wakichangia mada kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha ili kujadili kodi na ubora wa elimu hapa nchini Tanzania  kwenye mkutano uliofanyika jijini Dar 

Shirika la ActionAid-Tanzania, Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania, Shirika la Maendeleo ya Elimu Singida-MEDO na Mtandao wa Asasi za Kiraia-KINGONET  kwa pamoja wanatekeleza mradi wa uhamasishaji utoaji elimu bora kupitia rasilmali zetu wenyewe ( PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION THROUGH PROGRESSIVE DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION) unaotekelezwa huko Kilwa na Singida Vijijini kwa ngazi ya wilaya kwa kufanya kazi na kamati za shule na klabu za haki za watoto shuleni. Kitaifa MRADI Huo unalenga kufanya  utetezi wa mabadiliko ya kisera na sheria  hasa suala la ulipaji kodi, ukusanyaji kodi kwa haki (tax Justice), uzibaji wa mianya ya uvujaji wa kodi  ili makusanyo yaongezeke na yagharimie huduma bora kwa wananchi wa Tanzania hususani kuboresha utoaji wa Elimu bora Nchini.

Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania Bi. Cathleen Sekwao akifungua mkutano huo aligusia pia kuhusu “utoaji wa huduma za jamii hapa nchini unakabiliwa na ufinyu wa fedha, wote tu mashahidi kuwa hadi kufikia mwezi Machi, 2017 serikali ilikuwa imetoa asilimia 34 tu ya bajeti yote ya 2016/2017. Jambo hili lina madhara makubwa katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii hasa elimu msingi yenye ubora  hasakwa mtoto wa kike”.
Aliongelea pia serikali kushindwa kutoa asilimia mia moja ya fedha za kutekeleza bajeti ya 2016/2017 tafiti zinaonyesha kuwa Tanzania inapoteza fedha nyingi kupitia misamaha ya kodi.

Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe aliwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na: Upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, Upungufu wa ofisi za walimu, Upungufu wa vyoo vya wanafunzi,Uwiano usiokubalika kitaratibu wa mwalimu na wanafunzi, Shule nyingine kukosa kabisa walimu wa kike.

 Upungufu wa nyumba za walimu, fedha za ruzuku zisizotosheleza, utegemezi wa bajeti ya nchi za nje unaoathiri pia bajeti ya elimu na kusababisha Serikali kushindwa kugharimia kiufanisi utoaji wa elimu, mgawanyo wa ruzuku usiozingatia mahitaji halisi ya wenye uhitaji maalumu, jinsia na mahitaji ya kijiografia na pia shule changa na zile ambazo ni kongwe, Kuwa na mipango ya kibaguzi-Shule inayofanya vizuri ndiyo inapewa fedha(payment for results- P4R) kutoka mpango wa BRN bila kujali mizania ya usawa wa mazingira kati ya shule na shule, Kukosekana kwa mafunzo kazini kwa walimu, Kutopandishwa madaraja walimu, Kutolipwa kwa wakati stahiki za walimu wanaohamishwa/kustaafu mfano pesa ya usafiri.

Mratibu wa Inter Faith Standing Committee Bi. Grace Masalakulangwa aliwasilisha kuhusu Utafiti wa Ripoti ya “1 Billion Question” iliyojikita kubaini upotevu wa kodi katika sekta ya madini au uziduaji katika wilaya za Kilwa, Tarime na Geita. Utafiti huo umebaini serikali inapoteza takribani dola bilioni 1.83 sawa na Tsh trilioni 4.09 kwa mwaka kupitia misamaha ya kodi, uhamishaji wa fedha nje ya nchi bila kufuata utaratibu, kushindwa kutoza kodi sekta isiyo rasmi na aina nyingine za ukwepaji kodi.

Washiriki mbalimbali wakichangia katika mkutano huo, walishauri serikali kuboresha ukusanyaji wa kodi na utengaji wa bajeti katika sekta ya maendeleo hususani sekta ya elimu. Baadhi ya washiriki walichangia pia kukosekana kwa ufanisi na maendeleo yenye tija katika sekta ya Elimu kutokana na usimamizi mbovu wa elimu, serikali kushindwa kuwekeza katika elimu, kuwepo kwa wizara mbili zinazosimamia elimu na muda mwingine kuingiliana kwa majukumu pamoja na kutozingatiwa katika maslahi ya walimu.

          Consejos de Cruz Roja para evitar accidentes en playas y piscinas   
Cruz Roja recomienda extremar la precaución para evitar accidentes en playas y piscinas Los ahogamientos, los ?cortes de digestión? y los accidentes con elementos acuáticos pueden evitarse siguiendo unas mínimas normas de seguridad. ? Cruz Roja está presente en unas 300 playas del litoral español y anualmente lleva a cabo más de 100.000 atenciones (sanitarias, rescate de personas, localización de menores extraviados, baño adaptado para personas con discapacidad, etc). ? Los accidentes en el agua pueden tener repercusiones muy graves, incluso con riesgo para la propia vida. Los ahogamientos, los ?cortes de digestión? y otros accidentes similares pueden evitarse siguiendo unas mínimas normas de seguridad. En Castellón Cruz Roja cuenta con 60 personas especilizadas para la vigilancia de 9 playas en los municipios de Alcalà-Alcocebre, Cabanes y Nules. Con servicio de sillas adaptadas para el baño de personas con capacaidades diferentes en las tres poblaciones. ? Desde Cruz Roja se solicita máxima prudencia; respetar las banderas y las indicaciones de los socorristas. Adentrarse en el mar, con bandera amarilla o roja, es poner en riesgo la propia vida y también exponer la del socorrista. Ayer en Nules los socorristas efectuaron un rescate, que afortunadamente resultó positivo, y las dos personas salieron ilesas. ? ? ? Para evitar accidenrtes, hay que tener en cuenta: ? ? Báñate, preferentemente, en zonas habilitadas para ello y que cuenten con un servicio de vigilancia y salvamento. ? Evita entrar bruscamente en el agua, sobre todo después de haber tomado el sol o haber comido de manera copiosa. ? Evita bañarte mientras estés ?haciendo la digestión?. Es recomendable esperar un tiempo aproximado de entorno a dos horas. ? Sal de inmediato del agua si adviertes algún síntoma extraño (escalofríos, tiritona persistente, fatiga, dolor de cabeza o en la zona de la nuca, picores, mareos, vértigos o calambres?). ? No te tires de cabeza en lugares de fondo desconocido. Las zambullidas en el agua son la causa del 6% de las lesiones medulares en España, especialmente entre los varones jóvenes. ? Vigila en todo momento a los niños que estén cerca del agua, especialmente a los más pequeños, aunque sepan nadar. ? Presta atención también a las personas mayores?!! ? Respeta las banderas de señalización en las playas, así como las indicaciones de los socorristas. ? No intentes nadar en contra de la corriente. En caso de ser arrastrado, nada paralelamente a la playa y, una vez que salgas de la corriente, nada hacia la orilla. En caso de apuro, pide ayuda?!! ? Evita bañarte en zonas de riesgo como en ríos de gran caudal, en pozas naturales o bajo cascadas de agua. ? El aprendizaje de la natación, la educación sobre los riesgos que rodean al medio acuático y el uso de chalecos salvavidas homologados son altamente recomendables desde la edades más tempranas?!! ? Si te gustan los deportes acuáticos, practícalos en las zonas habilitadas específicamente para ello. ? ? ? ¿Qué hacer en caso de accidente en piscinas y playas? ? Los minutos que siguen al accidente pueden ser vitales para la víctima. Por ello tenemos que actuar con orden y serenidad para que la atención al accidentado sea lo más correcta posible. Cruz Roja cuenta para ello con un esquema de actuación, la conducta P.A.S. (Proteger, Avisar y Socorrer): ? ? Proteger el lugar del accidente. ? Haz seguro el lugar con el fin de evitar que se produzca un nuevo accidente. Según la situación será necesario, por ejemplo, avisar a los bañistas del peligro existente (corrientes, medusas, etc,), balizar la zona para informar de la existencia de cristales en la arena, o piedras a poca profundidad, etc. ? Avisar a los servicios de emergencia. ? Si existe servicio de vigilancia y salvamento en la zona pide ayuda al puesto de socorro más próximo. ? Si no existe servicio de vigilancia y salvamento y, según la gravedad de la situación, llama al teléfono de emergencias 112. Si la situación no reviste gravedad, acude al Centro de Salud más próximo. ? ? ? Socorrer a los heridos. ? ? Si una persona se encuentra ?en apuros? en el agua, intenta acercarle un objeto al que pueda agarrarse para mantenerse a flote, hasta la llegada de los especialistas. Nunca te tires al agua para socorrer a alguien en peligro si no has recibido formación específica para ello?!! ? Controla las funciones vitales de la víctima. Lo primero es valorar los ?signos vitales? para saber cómo están funcionando el cerebro (consciencia), los pulmones (respiración) y el corazón. ? Evita movimientos bruscos al accidentado, ante el riesgo de que se haya producido una lesión en la columna vertebral. ? Asegúrate de que está consciente. Si el herido no reacciona al hablarle, tocarle o estimularle suavemente, con un pellizco por ejemplo, probablemente está inconsciente. ? Comprueba que respira ?con normalidad?. Para saber si una persona respira espontáneamente, debes ?ver, oír y sentir? su respiración. Si no respira con normalidad, adminístrale 5 insuflaciones ó respìraciones de rescate, e inicia las compresiones torácicas externas, (alternando 30 compresiones y 2 ventilaciones), a un ritmo de 100-120 compresiones por minuto, hasta que llegue el equipo de emergencias. ?

Artistes on the label billed to perform are Crazy, Fireball, Jamelody, King David, Blessed Messenger, Tobago’s Kervern Carter, Marley Palmer, Jah Disciple, Jaron Nurse, Zion Nurse, Zion Starr, Brittany Gonzales, Dre Star, Frankie Dan and Linelle Hamilton.

 

In memory of Brigo

Across the seas, calypso is also holding centre stage tomorrow as the children of the late Brigo will celebrate his birthday in a special way in New Jersey, USA. The children are being joined by Brigo’s Cultural Theatre Roots & Branches to hold a free show and fair from noon.

Brigo’s daughter Janeel Keisha Abraham said this week: “Our mission is to protect the legacy of passion my father had for calypso as well as to celebrate the numerous young artistes he helped nurture. We are celebrating the life he lived and the lessons and values he taught us.

“Beside lots of music and BBQ on sale, we will also be giving food and clothing to the poor. We are determined to keep my father’s music and legacy alive here in North America, in T&T, and across the Caribbean.”

 

A deed deserving of mention

Full kudos are well deserved by the past and current student body and staff of Presentation College (San Fernando) for going above and beyond to assist the needy. In four short days they raised approximately $50,000 in cash and supplies for those adversely affected by Tropical Storm Bret.

A spokesman for the group told Pulse this week: “We have acquired mattresses, pillows, mops, brooms, flashlights, disinfectants, canned goods, rice, flour, legumes, snacks, water, tarpaulins, garbage bags, new and clean used clothing (folded and sorted by gender and size), disposable diapers and sanitary napkins.

“These items will be given to people living in the Siparia and Penal/Debe regions and we will be guided by their regional corps as to who receives supplies.”

Also assisting the less fortunate were the delegates ion this year’s Miss TT World Pageant. On Friday, at the Tea Party, Talent and Top Model Competition, auctioned a bottle of champagne for $8,600 and donated the proceeds to the San Fernando City Corporation for distribution to the flood victims.

 

Party for a cause

Come July 8, a fund-raising party for stroke victim Wendy Hector will be held at All Out Sports Bar, Queen’s Park Oval, Woodbrook. In addition to some foot-stomping DJ music, there will be a live performance by The Malcontents, Chris Mouttet, Richard Law, Gary Hector, Stuart “Fowl” Abraham, Paul Amar and Phil Hill.

This is a dress up/costume party and guests are invited to don the Hippy, funky and groovy styles of the 60’s and 70’s.

Tickets cost $150 advanced and $200 at the door and they are limited tickets and already going like hot bread.

There will be drinks specials all night long door prizes for the Best Dressed Couple and Best Dressed Hippy.


          grilled pizza   

Before we snuck a grill onto our balcony one glorious day last May, I would regularly show up at friends-with-grills homes with prepared pizza dough and a few toppings in the summer; I love grilled pizza so much that I’d feed a crowd just to get my fix. It was one of the first things I made when we bought our own. The benefits of cooking pizza outside are manifold. With heat circulating all around the pizza and the dough resting on open grates instead of a flat tray, I find that you can get more texture — crisp on the outside but staying stretchy within — and flavor — charred spots that will immediately remind you of your favorite brick-oven pizzeria, without heating up your apartment, pretty much the last thing any of us want to do in the summer. Plus, it’s really quick. Once your dough is purchased or prepared, you could be eating your pizza in 10 minutes; not bad for a homemade dinner after a long day.

white and whole wheat flours, salt, yeastmix itit can help to drain canned tomatoes a littlewhat you'll need

I’ve already discussed at length my favorite homemade margherita — my preference is for mozzarella that is packed dry, not the fancy stuff in water (despite what you see in the early pictures; promise you’ll save the fancy, ultra-tender stuff for serving cold and fresh with appetizers and salads, please) and for “raw” sauces, blended from canned or fresh tomatoes with some liquid poured off and then doctored up and seasoned well, for the best flavor — and I follow the same rules here. In the oven but especially on the grill, you must keep your toppings thin, light, and pre-sautéed or they simply will not cook before the crust is done; it also leads to puddled and wet pizza tops, something I’m sure we’ve all experienced.

          Crystal chemistry of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from Sludyanka complex, Lake Baikal, Russia (no replies)   
Reference:
▪ Bosi, F., Reznitskii, L., Halenius, U., Skogby, H. (2017): Crystal chemistry of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from Sludyanka complex, Lake Baikal, Russia. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 457-472.

Abstract:
Twelve Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from the Sludyanka crystalline complex (Russia) were structurally and chemically characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and electron microprobe analysis. Three samples were also optically characterized by optical absorption spectroscopy and refractive index measurements. The data obtained and those of fourteen earlier studied oxy-tourmalines from the same locality show a complete substitution series due to the replacement of Al ↔ V3+ ↔ Cr3+. The cation site distribution results show that Mg has a strong preference for the Z site, whereas the trivalent cations have a preference for Y and Z controlled by their size: YV3+ > YCr >> YAl and ZAl >> ZCr > ZV3+.
In accordance with the bond-valence theory, the observed increase of F content with increasing Cr content may be interpreted by the occurrence of the local arrangements O1(F)–Y(CrCrCr) and Z[Cr(Cr,Mg)]–O3(O2−)–Y(Cr), while the incorporation of V3+ into the oxy-tourmaline structure is controlled by the local arrangement O1(O2−)–Y(VVV).
The unit-cell parameters (a and c) are strictly correlated to each other and can be expressed by a quadratic relation dependent on the mean-bond distances 〈Z–O〉 and 〈X–O〉. A strong positive correlation between (V + Cr) content and mean refractive index is proposed as a reliable guide to derive the composition of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from refractive-index measurements.
          Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series (no replies)

▪ Bosi, F., Cámara, F., Ciriotti, M.E., Hålenius, U., Reznitskii, L., Stagno, V. (2017): Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems in tourmalines belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 445-455.

Abstract:
Two oxy-tourmalines showing intermediate compositions between the oxy-schorl and oxy-dravite series (sample from Sludyanka crystalline complex, Baikal, Russia) and the oxy-dravite and bosiite series (sample from the Valletta mine, Piedmont, Italy) were structurally and chemically characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe analysis, optical absorption and Synchrotron Mössbauer source spectroscopy. A comparative analysis of the results, along with data from literature on additional samples corresponding to the species oxy-schorl, oxy-dravite, bosiite and povondraite, show that the main structural variations within the Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are related to variations in the content of Fe, which is incorporated into the structure via substitution mechanisms that involves Al. The results also show the occurrence of a complete substitution series from oxy-schorl via oxy-dravite and bosiite to povondraite, but no (or a limited) direct substitution series between oxy-schorl and bosiite (or povondraite). The substitution of Al by larger cations causes changes in ⟨Y–O⟩ and ⟨Z–O⟩ distances as well as in the unit-cell parameters. The effect of ⟨Y–O⟩ on the a-parameter is evident in the oxy-schorl–oxy-dravite series, but it is of marginal significance in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. On the other hand, a good correlation exists between ⟨Z–O⟩ and the a-parameter only in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. The c-parameter is strongly correlated with ⟨Z–O⟩ along the entire substitution series.
Classification problems related to the naming of Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are discussed. Application of the nomenclature rules in force resulted in ambiguous naming of the studied samples. This makes, for example, direct comparisons of physical and chemical properties of tourmalines originating from different deposits difficult.

          Trump’s Travel Ban Is Back

Travelers wait in line near an Emirates ticket counter at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. 

A limited version of President Trump’s controversial travel ban is back in place after the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government could impose restrictions on certain foreign travelers and refugees. The constant back-and-forth rulings have created a bureaucratic nightmare for those involved in the refugee resettlement process, and Thursday’s developments promise even more disruption.

While President Trump proclaimed victory, refugee and human rights advocates have been on tenterhooks this week. The high court’s decision was certainly a blow to opponents of the ban, but just how hard that blow is will depend on the Trump administration’s next moves.

The government’s new guidelines would significantly limit the total number of noncitizens and refugees that can enter the country, according to a State Department background briefing Thursday afternoon. The department released its guidance just four hours before the ban is scheduled to go into effect. However, the Department of Homeland Security, which controls border enforcement, has not issued its own guidance on the new policies.

During its short but turbulent existence, two versions of the travel ban have been issued, blocked by federal courts, and now given the go-ahead with certain restrictions. But the Supreme Court decision and the subsequent federal guidelines do not reassure refugees advocates. “Nothing is off the table when it comes to this travel ban,” says Justin Cox, a National Immigration Law Center (NILC) staff attorney. “We can’t assume smooth sailing.”

On Monday, the justices said that they would wait until October to hear two cases regarding Trump’s travel ban. Until then, the high court granted a partial stay to injunctions freezing the controversial executive order, allowing a limited version of the travel ban to go into effect.

Noncitizens who can show they have a “bona fide relationship” with a “person or entity” in the United States will be allowed to enter the country, as will anyone who has already been issued a visa. People who cannot prove that they have a close relationship with a U.S. citizen will be banned from entering the country for 90 days if they are from the six Muslim-majority countries included in the executive order. That time period increases to 120 days for refugees from any country who have not yet received permission to enter the U.S. 

The high court gave a few examples of what constituted a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the U.S., such as visiting a relative or traveling to work or study, but stopped short of providing comprehensive definitions, preferring to leave the work of coming up with more nuanced characterizations to the federal government and lower courts.

But under the new guidelines, relatives only include immediate family members already in the country: parents, spouses, children, adult sons or daughters, sons- or daughters-in-law, and siblings. Grandparents were not included in the guidelines.

Refugees who have already been admitted to the U.S. and are booked to travel before July 6 will be exempt from the ban. A senior administration official said that the fate of those who’ve been booked travel after that date would be addressed at a later time. The briefers also said that establishing valid connections with American entities by refugees would need to be “formal” and “documented”: Simply being connected to a resettlement agency would not be sufficient. Roughly one-third of refugees waiting to be admitted do not have family ties in the United States, according to resettlement agency estimates.

“This is an unduly restrictive approach,” says Eleanor Acer, director of Human Rights First’s Refugee Protection program. “Refugees who go through multiple security entities, are approved by the DHS [Department of Homeland Security], vetted by various government agencies, and have long relationships with resettlement agencies should all be viewed as having requisite bona fide relationships.”

The limited ban could still leave thousands of people in limbo. “This isn’t like postponing a vacation,” says Melanie Nezer, vice president of policy and advocacy at HIAS, a Maryland-based Jewish resettlement agency. “These are life or death situations that refugees could be forced to remain in.”

Of the top 10 countries for total numbers of refugees granted permission to enter the United States during the last fiscal year, only three—Somalia, Syria, and Iran—were listed in Trump’s original executive order. Iraq is also among the top 10, and there are tens of thousands of people who worked with the U.S. government who are waiting to get clearance to resettle in this country. Under these current guidelines, it’s not clear if they would be granted entry.

The reinstated ban has stoked fears of a return to the chaos that played out in airports across the country following the haphazard rollout of Trump’s first executive order.

Naureen Shah, Amnesty International’s senior director of campaigns announced that the organization would be sending researchers to airports to “monitor how the ban is being implemented.”

“There’s going to be massive confusion in airports around the world,” says Acer, who anticipates a heightened legal response to refugees connected to resettlement agencies being blocked from entering the country.

In his partial dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas warned that the court’s decision would “invite a flood of litigation”—a comment that will likely prove prescient in the months to come. Lawsuits challenging the original and updated versions of the travel ban have inundated federal courts.

“I expect that we’ll be back in court soon,” says Cox of the NILC. “No one is going to take this lying down.”

Critics of the ban argue that refugees are already the most rigorously vetted group allowed into the U.S., undergoing a process that can take up to two years or more. “I don’t know how much more extreme the vetting can get, frankly,” says Cornell law professor Stephen Yale-Loehr.

This new wave of uncertainty unfolds at a time when the number of approved refugees approved to enter the U.S. had just started to bounce back after Trump’s initial immigration restrictions. Resettlement numbers plummeted in the wake of Trump’s first two attempted travel bans: In January, the U.S. admitted nearly 7,000 refugees admitted by March that number had declined to just 2,000 in March, according to State Department data

More than 46,000 refugees have been admitted and resettled in the U.S. in fiscal 2017, nearly reaching the 50,000 limit that Trump had specified in his original executive order, but still a long way off from the 110,000 ceiling that the Obama administration had put in place.

The Supreme Court allowed the U.S. to cap refugee arrivals, but justices did not allow the Trump administration to prohibit refugees with bona fide relationships, even if “the 50,000-person cap has been reached or exceeded.”

Officials at HIAS, one of nine agencies that work with the State Department to resettle refugees, were already worried they wouldn’t hit their resettlement targets before the travel ban was reinstated. Even in the “best-case” scenario, the agency expects to resettle 1,400 fewer than they had been approved to resettle at the beginning of the fiscal year. Other resettlement agencies have reported similar drops.

“The program changes on an almost weekly basis,” says Nezer. According to Nezer, these changes in policy can stall refugee case processing. That can often result in medical and security clearances expiring, which in turn creates even lengthier delays.

Trump had originally ordered federal agencies to wait 72 hours after the court’s decision to implement the ban. Trump maintains that the ban is necessary to protect the nation from terrorist activities and praised the court’s decision as “a clear victory for our national security.”

          Venus Williams Reportedly Sued in Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Fatal Car Crash   

Venus Williams is being sued for breaking traffic laws in the build-up to a crash earlier this month that led to the death of a 78-year-old man, according to documents obtained by CNN's Chloe Melas, and transcribed by Jill Martin. 

It's been reported Williams has been named in the lawsuit after Jerome Barson died from injuries suffered in the June 9 crash in Palm Beach County, Florida, when the car he was a passenger in collided with Williams' vehicle.

The documents, which were emailed to B/R, allege Venus "negligently operated or maintained the Toyota Sequoia so that she collided with a 2016 Hyundai Accent that was being operated by Linda Barson and occupied by her husband, Jerome Barson," per Martin. 

The suit also says Williams failed to yield the right of way, failed to stop at a red light, failed to obey a traffic control device, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to stop for oncoming traffic, was driving too fast for the conditions, drove carelessly and recklessly and was distracted while driving.

Barson died almost a fortnight after the crash having sustained a fractured spine as well as massive internal organ damage and internal bleeding. 

The impact caused damaged to both vehicles, per the suit. The Hyundai was "crushed, the front windshield shattered, the airbags deployed, there was crush damage to the rear on the driver’s side, and the back window was shattered." Williams' SUV "was also severely damaged."

TMZ wrote that a police report said Williams was to blame for the crash, although her attorney, Malcolm Cunningham, said she was travelling through a green light at only five miles per hour entering the intersection.

WPBF-TV reporter Ari Hait provided Cunningham's statement in full:

Williams is said to have not been under the influence of any alcohol or drugs when the crash took place, but Malika Andrews of the New York Times reported witnesses told investigators the light was red as she entered the intersection.

Williams is seeded 10th in the 2017 Wimbledon Championship and is scheduled to make her 20th appearance in the competition on Monday, July 3.

People don't realize that it's NOT just calories in- calories out. There are many women like myself who suffer from hormonal abnormalities - like PCO - that make it nearly impossible to lose weight. Today, I am at the gym 5 days a week, and eat what anyone else would call an extremely healthy, low-sugar diet, just to maintain my current weight, but I believe people looking at me just see a lazy ice-cream lover.

          Marco Aurélio devolve o Mandato a Aécio neves   
247 - 

O ministro Marco Aurélio Mello, do Supremo Tribunal Federal, revogou nesta sexta-feira, 30, a decisão do ministro Edson Fachin que afastou o senador Aécio Neves (PSDB) de suas funções. 
"Provejo o agravo para afastar as medidas consubstanciadas na suspensão do exercício de funções parlamentares ou de qualquer função pública, na proibição de contatar outro investigado ou réu no processo e na de ausentar-se do País, devolvendo ao agravante a situação jurídica que lhe foi proporcionada pelos eleitores no sufráfio universal", diz a decisão do ministro Marco Aurélio. "Julgo predicado o agravo formalizado pelo Procurador-geral da República em que veiculado o pedido de implemento da prisão preventiva do agravante", acrescentou. 
Aécio havia sido afastado em maio por determinação do ministro Edson Fachin, relator da Lava Jato no STF, após a Operação Patmos, fase da Lava Jato baseada nas delação da JBS. A Procuradoria Geral da República apontou risco de o senador usar seu poder para atrapalhar as investigações e havia pedido a prisão de Aécio. No entanto, Fachin entendeu que a Constituição proibia a prisão do parlamentar e determinou o afastamento.
Como lembrou o jornalista Bernardo Mello Franco, em duas semanas, Aécio teve seu pedido de cassação arquivado no Conselho de Ética do Senado, viu a irmã e o primo serem libertados e seus inquéritos do STF ficarem com os ministros Gilmar Mendes e Alexandre de Moraes.

          Em dois dias, João Pessoa registra 32% das chuvas previstas para o mês de junho   
Rammom Monte –

As chuvas registradas em João Pessoa nesta quarta (28) e quinta-feira (29) representam 32,4% da media histórica para o mês de junho na capital paraibana. A informação é da meteorologista da Agência Executiva de Gestão de Águas (Aesa), Marle Bandeira. 
De acordo com a Aesa, na quarta-feira (28), foram registrados 37,5 mm de chuvas, o que representa 12,4% do total histórico no mês, que é de 301,7 milímetros (mm). Já nesta quinta-feira, até o momento, choveu 60,4mm, representando 20% do total. 
Ainda de acordo com Marle, os 29 dias deste mês registraram 274,6 mm de chuvas, sendo 91% do total, estando dentro da normalidade. Para atingir a média histórica, seria necessário que chovesse 27,1 mm até esta sexta-feira (30).
Apesar das fortes chuvas, a Defesa Civil não relatou nenhum caso de deslizamento em João Pessoa nesta quinta-feira (29). Já na quarta-feira (28), a Capital enfrentou problemas com alagamentos, com trânsito ruim em diversos trechos. Segundo a Superintendência Executiva de Mobilidade Urbana (Semob), foram registrados sete pontos de alagamentos na Capital.
As fortes chuvas no Litoral provocaram o sangramento do reservatório Gramame-Mamuaba, localizado na cidade do Conde. Outro que está sangrando é o São José II, que fica na cidade de Monteiro e é o primeiro a receber as águas do rio São Francisco. Outros 36 açudes estão com mais de 20% do volume, 45 têm menos de 20% e 44 estão em situação crítica, ou seja, com menos de 5% do volume.

Per una generazione intera è “il” disco dei Beatles. Per molti ha la copertina più leggendaria della storia dei “Fab Four”. Per altri versi è il disco che segna, nella maniera più bella e malinconica, la fine del gruppo: “Abbey Road” è senza dubbio uno dei dischi più importanti della storia del rock ed è una delle chiavi di volta per comprendere come sia finita la vicenda artistica del quartetto di Liverpool. Ed è proprio ad “Abbey Road” e ai suoi numerosissimi fan che è dedicata la seconda delle “Lezioni di Rock” di Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo. Tra immagini e suoni Castaldo e Assante racconteranno uno degli album che hanno segnato in maniera indelebile la storia della cultura giovanile degli anni Sessanta e la storia del rock.
          Parisa Tabriz, "Hacker" Wanita yang Jadi Bos di Google   

KOMPAS.com -  Google merekrut banyak peretas untuk melindungi sistemnya dari gangguan pihak luar. Tugas mereka adalah mencari lubang keamanan dalam sistem sebelum ditemukan peretas jahat.

Salah satu peretas yang direkrut Google adalah wanita 31 tahun bernama Parisa Tabriz yang di kalangan karyawan Google dijuluki sebagai "Security Princess." Kenapa bisa dijuluki seperti itu?

Menurut Parisa yang kini menjabat sebagai Head of Security di tim peramban Google Chrome mengatakan bahwa ia memang meminta mendapatkan nama jabatan yang tidak terlalu serius.

"Saya rasa gelar Information Security Engineer kedengarannya membosankan, semua pria-pria di Google kerjanya sangat serius, karena itu julukan "Security Princes" rasanya lebih cocok," ujar wanita keturunan Iran-Amerika ini kepada Telegraph (4/10/2014).

Gelar Security Princess itu pun dipakai Parisa di dalam kartu namanya.

Parisa kini menjadi salah satu anomali di Silicon Valley, bukan hanya karena ia seorang wanita, namun juga menjadi bos dan memimpin 30 ahli yang tersebar di AS dan Eropa.

Parisa yang pada tahun 2012 pernah masuk dalam daftar 30 orang di bawah umur 30 tahun yang layak diperhatikan yang dibuat oleh Forbes itu mengatakan bahwa masih sediktinya wanita dalam industri teknologi juga disebabkan karena wanita masih meremehkan dirinya masing-masing.

Äda studi yang dilakukan beberapa tahun lalu yang mempertanyakan mengapa orang-orang meninggalkan kuliah ilmu komputer mereka," katanya.

"Wanita yang drop-out cenderung memiliki nilai rata-rata B minus dan alasan utamanya adalah pelajaran yang susah, sementara pria yang keluar rata-rata memiliki nilai C dan alasan mereka adalah ilmu itu tidak menarik," lanjut Parisa.

"Di industri keamanan komputer, keahlian itu lebih penting daripada jenis kelamin, pria atau wanita, untuk mendapatkan pekerjaan itu, kita harus berusaha semaksimal mungkin," demikian tegasnya.

Sebagai white-hat hacker, Parisa merasa keberadaan mereka perlu lebih dipromosikan. Ia mencontohkan kasus pembobolan iCloud yang mengakibatkan beredarnya foto-foto bugil artis-artis Hollywood.

" Hacker butuh publikasi yang lebih baik, semua harus tahu bahwa tidak semua dari kami berperilaku negatif seperti itu," ujarnya.

          10 Alasan Menolak Kebijakan Lima Hari Sekolah   
jpnn.com, JAKARTA - Peraturan Menteri Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan Nomor 23 Tahun 2017 tentang Hari Sekolah sudah ditanda tangani oleh Muhadjir Effendy di Jakarta pada Senin, 12 Juni 2017.

Ada 11 pasal yang termuat dalam permen yang cukup menyita energi untuk memperdebatkannya.

Pasal terakhir memuat Permendikbud ini berlaku sejak tanggal diundangkan. Kebijakan sekolah 5 hari sepekan yang berlaku itu untuk menyambut tahun ajaran baru 2017/2018 pada Juli 2017.

Banyak penolakan. Khususnya dari daerah-daerah yang belum siap dengan kebijakan Muhadjir. Seperti apa alasan penolakannya?

Berikut JPNN merangkum 10 alasan menolak kebijakan lima hari sekolah:

1. Infrastruktur sekolah belum memadai. Masih banyak sekolah menerapkan dua gelombang yakni pagi dan sore karena keterbatasan kelas.
"Semua harus dipersiapkan, tidak bisa asal diterapkan," kata Kepala Disdik Kota Batam, Kepulauan Riau, Muslim Bidin.

2. Menggerus eksistensi pendidikan nonformal keagamaan maupun kursus belajar lainnya. Di luar jam sekolah seperti Mardasah Diniyah (Madin) yang telah inheren dalam praktik pendidikan bagi anak-anak usia sekolah.

3. Kebijakan full day school sama sekali tidak memberikan alokasi penambahan materi pendidikan keagamaan kepada anak didik.

4. Wacana full day school berangkat pikiran masyarakat kota besar. Padahal Indonesia bukan Jakarta, daerah-daerah di tanah air juga tidak semuanya kota.

5. Ada jutaan anak membantu orang tuanya.

6. Kualitas pendidikan itu tidak ditentukan oleh lamanya belajar di sekolah. Apalagi banyak sekolah di Indonesia yang sarana dan prasarananya tak memadai untuk anak betah di sekolah.

7. Anak mengalami stres jika memang terlalu lama belajar akademik di dalam ruang kelas di sekolah. Dampaknya bisa macam-macam dan menyebabkan gangguan emosi.

"Mulai dari gangguan emosi (cepat meledak emosinya, misalnya) sampai menolak untuk sekolah atau mogok sekolah," ujar Psikolog Anak dan Remaja Universitas Indonesia (UI) Vera Itabiliana Hadiwidjojo.

8. Konsep lima hari sekolah belum matang.

"Secara umum saya memandang pemerintah belum punya konsep delapan jam di sekolah ini. Jadi, akhirnya muncul berbagai statement yang tidak jelas," kata Anggota Komisi X DPR Ledia Hanifa Amaliah.

9. Hilangnya waktu anak untuk bertemu dengan orang tua.

10. Membatasi anak untuk bisa menempuh pendidikan nonformal.

          SHALAT TARAWIH NABI SHALLALLAHU ALAIHI WA SALLAM DAN SALAFUSH SHALIH   




Shalat tarawih adalah bagian dari shalat nafilah (tathawwu’). Mengerjakannya disunnahkan secara berjama’ah pada bulan Ramadhan, dan sunnah muakkadah. Disebut tarawih, karena setiap selesai dari empat rakaat, para jama’ah duduk untuk istirahat.
Tarawih adalah bentuk jama’ dari tarwihah. Menurut bahasa berarti jalsah (duduk). Kemudian duduk pada bulan Ramadhan setelah selesai dari empat raka’at disebut tarwihah; karena dengan duduk itu, orang-orang bisa istirahat dari lamanya melaksanakan qiyam Ramadhan.

Bahkan para salaf bertumpu pada tongkat, karena terlalu lamanya berdiri. Dari situ,kemudian setiap empat raka’at, disebut tarwihah, dan kesemuanya disebut tarawih secara majaz.
Aisyah Radhiyallahu anhuma ditanya: “Bagaimana shalat Rasul Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam pada bulan Ramadhan?” Dia menjawab, “Beliau tidak pemah menambah -di Ramadhan atau di luarnya- lebih dari 11 raka’at. Beliau shalat empat rakaat, maka jangan ditanya tentang bagusnya dan lamanya. Kemudian beliau shalat 3 raka’at.” [HR Bukhari]
.
Kata ثم (kemudian), adalah kata penghubung yang memberikan makna berurutan, dan adanya jeda waktu.

Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam shalat empat raka’at dengan dua kali salam, kemudian beristirahat. Hal ini berdasarkan keterangan Aisyah Radhiyallahu anhuma, “Adalah Rasulullah melakukan shalat pada waktu setelah selesainya shalat Isya’, hingga waktu fajar, sebanyak 11 raka’at, mengucapkan salam pada setiap dua raka’at, dan melakukan witir dengan saturaka’at.” [HR Muslim].
Juga berdasarkan keterangan Ibn Umar Radhiyallahu anhuma, bahwa seseorang bertanya, “Wahai 

Rasulullah,bagaimana shalat malam itu?” Beliau menjawab,
مَشْنَى مَشْنَى فَإِذَا خِفْتَ الصُّبْحَ فَأَوْتِِرْ بِوَا حِدَةِ
“Yaitu dua raka’at-dua raka’at, maka apabila kamu khawatir (masuk waktu) shubuh, berwitirlah dengan satu raka’at. [HR Bukhari]
Dalam hadits Ibn Umar yang lain disebutkan:
صَلاَةُ الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ رَكْعَتَانِ رَكْعَتَانِ
“Shalat malam dan siang dua raka’at-dua raka’at”. [HR Ibn Abi Syaibah. Ash Shalah, 309; At Tamhid, 5/251; Al Hawadits, 140-143; Fathul Bari, 4/250; Al Ijabat Al Bahiyyah,18; Al Muntaqa,4/49-51]
FADHILAH SHALAT TARAWIH

1.Hadits Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu anhu
مَنْ قَامَ رَمَضَانَ اِيْمَانَا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْذنْبِه
“Barang siapa melakukan qiyam (lail) pada bulan Ramadhan, karena iman dan mencari pahala, maka diampuni untuknya apa yang telah lalu dari dosanya.”

Maksud qiyam Ramadhan, secara khusus, menurut Imam Nawawi adalah shalat tarawih. Hadits ini memberitahukan, bahwa shalat tarawih itu bisa mendatangkan maghfirah dan bisa menggugurkan semua dosa; tetapi dengan syarat karena bermotifkan iman; membenarkan pahala-pahala yang dijanjikan oleh Allah dan mencari pahala tersebut dari Allah. Bukan karena riya’ atau sekedar adat kebiasaan. [Fathul Bari 4/251; Tanbihul Ghafilin 357-458; Majalis Ramadhan, 58; AtTamhid, 3/320; AI Ijabat Al Bahiyyah, 6]

Hadits ini dipahami oleh para salafush shaalih, termasuk oleh Abu Hurairah sebagai anjuran yang kuat dari Rasulullah untuk melakukan qiyam Ramadhan (shalat tarawih, tahajud, dan lain-lain). [At Tamhid, 3/311-317: Sunan Abi Daud, 166]

2. Hadits Abdurrahman bin Auf Radhiyallahu anhu,
إِِنَّ رَمَضَانَ شَهْرٌ فَرَضَ اللَّهُ صِيَامَهُ وَإِنِّي سَنَنْتُ لِلْمُسلِمِيْنَ قِيَامَهُ فَمَنْ صَامَهُ وَقَامَهُ إِعيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا خَرَجَ مِنَْ الذُّنُوبْ كَيَوْم وَلَدَتْهُ أُمُّه
“Sesungguhnya Ramadhan adalah bulan dimana Allah mewajibkan puasanya, dan sesungguhnya aku menyunnahkan qiyamnya untuk orang-orang Islam. Maka barang siapa berpuasa Ramadhan dan qiyam Ramadhan karena iman dan mencari pahala, maka ia (pasti) keluar dari dosa-dosanya sebagaimana pada hari ia dilahirkan oleh ibunya.(HR : Ahmad, Ibnu Majah. Al Bazzar, Abu Ya’la dan Abdur Razzaqmeriwayatkannya dari Abu Hurairah.)
Al Albani berkata, “Yang shahih hanya kalimat yang kedua saja, yang awal dha’if.”[Lihat Sunan lbn Majah, 146,147; AlIjabat Al Bahiyyah, 8-10]

3. Hadits Abu Dzar Radhiyallahu anhu,
مَنْ قَامَ مَعَ اْلإِمَامِ حَتَّى يَنْصَرِفَ كُتِبَ لَهُ قِيَامُ لَيْلَة
“Barang siapa qiyamul lail bersama imam sampai ia selesai, maka ditulis untuknya (pahala) qiyam satu malam (penuh).” [HR Ahmad, Abu Daud, Tirmidzi, Ibn Majah, Nasa’i, dan lain-lain, Hadits shahih. Lihat Al ljabat Al Bahiyyah, 7]
Hadits ini sekaligus juga memberikan anjuran, agar melakukan shalat tarawih secara berjamaah dan mengikuti imam hingga selesai.
Ada sebagian orang berpendapat,shalat Tarawih berjama’ah baru dikerjakan pada zaman khalifah Umar binKhaththab. Benarkah demikian? Mari kita tengok sejarah melalui hadits-hadits serta riwayat-riwayat shahih apa yang terjadi pada zaman Nabi dan bagaimana yang terjadi pada masa Khulafa’ur Rasyidin.

SHALAT TARAWIH PADA ZAMAN NABI SHALLALLAHU ALAIHI WA SALLAM

Nabi Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam telah melaksanakan dan memimpin shalat tarawih. Bahkan beliau Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam menjelaskan fadhilahnya, dan menyetujui jama’ah tarawih yang dipimpin oleh sahabat Ubay bin Ka’ab. Berikut ini adalah dalil-dalil yang menjelaskan, bahwa shalat tarawih secara berjama’ah disunnahkan oleh Nabi Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, dan dilakukan secara khusyu’ dengan bacaan yang panjang.
1.      Hadits Nu’man bin Basyir, Radhiyallahu anhu : Ia berkata: “Kami melaksanakan qiyamul lail (tarawih) bersama Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam pada malam 23 bulan Ramadhan, sampai sepertiga malam. Kemudian kami shalat lagi bersama beliau pada malam 25 Ramadhan (berakhir) sampai separoh malam. Kemudian beliau memimpin lagi pada malam 27 Ramadhan sampai kami menyangka tidak akan sempat mendapati sahur.” [HR. Nasa’i, Ahmad, Al Hakim. Shahih]
2.      Hadits Abu Dzar Radhiyallahu anhu : Ia berkata: “Kami puasa, tetapi Nabi Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam tidak memimpin kami untuk melakukan shalat (tarawih), hingga Ramadhan tinggal tujuh hari lagi, maka Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam mengimami kami shalat, sampai lewat sepertiga malam. Kemudian beliau tidak keluar lagi pada malam ke enam. Dan pada malam ke lima,beliau memimpin shalat lagi sampai lewat separoh malam. Lalu kami berkata kepada Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, ‘Seandainya engkau menambah lagi untuk kami sisa malam kita ini?’, maka beliau Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersada,

3.      مَنْ قَامَ مَعَ اْلإِمَامِ حَتَّى يَنْصَرِفَ كُتِبَ لَهُ قِيَامُ لَيْلَة

Barang siapa shalat (tarawih) bersama imam sampai selesai. maka ditulis untuknya shalat satu malam (suntuk).’
Kemudian beliau ٍShallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam tidak memimpin shalat lagi, hingga Ramadhan tinggal tiga hari. Maka beliau memimpin kami shalat pada malam ketiga. Beliau mengajak keluarga dan istrinya. Beliau mengimami sampai kami khawatir tidak mendapat falah. saya (perawi) bertanya, apa itu falah? Dia (Abu Dzar) berkata, “Sahur.”[HR Nasai, Tirmidzi, Ibn Majah, Abu Daud, Ahmad. Shahih]
3        Tsa’labah bin Abi Malik Al Qurazhi Radhiyallahu anhu berkata: “Pada suatu malam, di malam Ramadhan, Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam keluar rumah, kemudian beliau melihat sekumpulan orang disebuah pojok masjid sedang melaksanakan shalat. Beliau lalu bertanya, ‘Apa yang sedang mereka lakukan?’ Seseorang menjawab, ‘Ya Rasulullah, sesungguhnya mereka itu adalah orang-orang yang tidak membaca Al Qur’an, sedang Ubay bin Ka’ab ahli membaca Al Qur’an, maka mereka shalat (ma’mum) dengan shalatnya Ubay.’ Beliau lalu bersabda,
قَدْ أَحْسَنُوْا وَقَدْ أَصَابُوْا
‘Mereka telah berbuat baik dan telah berbuat benar.’ Beliau tidak membencinya.”[HR Abu Daud dan Al Baihaqi, ia berkata: Mursal hasan. Syaikh Al Albani berkata, “Telah diriwayatkan secara mursal dari jalan lain dari Abu Hurairah,dengan sanad yang tidak bermasalah (bisa diterima).”. [Shalat At Tarawih, 9]

SHALAT TARAWIH PADA ZAMAN KHULAFA’UR RASYIDIN
1.      Para sahabat Rasulullah, shalat tarawih di masjid Nabawi pada malam-malam Ramadhan secara awza’an (berpencar-pencar). Orang yang bisa membaca Al Qur’an ada yang mengimami 5 orang, ada yang 6 orang, ada yang lebih sedikit dari itu, dan ada yang lebih banyak. Az Zuhri berkata, “Ketika Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam wafat, orang-orang shalat tarawih dengan cara seperti itu. Kemudian pada masa Abu Bakar, caranya tetap seperti itu; begitu pula awal khalifah Umar.”
2.      Abdurrahman bin Abdul Qari’ berkata, “Saya keluar ke masjid bersama Umar Radhiyallahu anhu pada bulan Ramadhan. Ketika itu orang-orang berpencaran; ada yang shalat sendirian, dan ada yang shalat dengan jama’ah yang kecil (kurang dari sepuluh orang). Umar berkata, ‘Demi Allah, saya melihat (berpandangan),seandainya mereka saya satukan di belakang satu imam, tentu lebih utama,’ Kemudian beliau bertekad dan mengumpulkan mereka di bawah pimpinan Ubay bin Ka’ab. Kemudian saya keluar lagi bersama beliau pada malam lain. Ketika itu orang-orang sedang shalat di belakang imam mereka. Maka Umar Radhiyallahu anhu berkata,’Ini adalah sebaik-baik hal baru.’ Dan shalat akhir malam nanti lebih utama dari shalat yang mereka kerjakan sekarang.” Peristiwa ini terjadi pada tahun 14H.
3.      Umar Radhiyallahu anhu mengundang para qari’ pada bulan Ramadhan, lalu memberi perintah kepada mereka agar yang paling cepat bacaanya membaca 30 ayat (+/- 3 halaman), dan yang sedang agar membaca 25 ayat,adapun yang pelan membaca 20 ayat (+ 2 halaman).
4.      Al A’raj (seorang tabi’in Madinah,wafat 117 H) berkata, ;”Kami tidak mendapati orang-orang, melainkan mereka sudah melaknat orang kafir (dalam do’a) pada bulan Ramadhan.” la berkata, “Sang qari’ (imam) membaca ayat Al Baqarah dalam 8 raka’at. Jika ia telah memimpin 12 raka’at, (maka) barulah orang-orang merasa kalau imam meringankan.”
5.      Abdullah bin Abi Bakr berkata, “Saya mendengar bapak saya berkata,’Kami sedang pulang dari shalat (tarawih) pada malam Ramadhan. Kami menyuruh pelayan agar cepat-cepat menyiapkan makanan, karena takut tidak mendapat sahur’. ”
6.      Saib bin Yazid rahimahullah (Wafat 91 H) berkata, “Umar Radhiyallahu anhu memerintah Ubay bin Ka’ab dan Tamim Ad Dari Radhiyallahu anhuma agar memimpin shalat tarawih pada bulan Ramadhan dengan 11 raka’at. Maka sang qari’ membaca dengan ratusan ayat, hingga kita bersandar pada tongkat karena sangat lamanya berdiri. Maka kami tidak pulang dari tarawih, melainkan sudah di ujung fajar.” [Fathul Bari, 4/250-254; Shalat At Tarawih, 11; Al ljabat Al Bahiyyah,15-18; Al Majmu’, 4/34]

BILANGAN RAKA’AT SHALAT TARAWIH DAN SHALAT WITIR

Mengenai masalah ini, diantara para ulama salaf terdapat perselisihan yang cukup banyak (variasinya) hingga mencapai belasan pendapat, sebagaimana di bawah ini.
1.      Sebelas raka’at (8 + 3 Witir),riwayat Malik dan Said bin Manshur.
2.      Tiga belas raka’at (2 raka’atringan + 8 + 3 Witir), riwayat Ibnu Nashr dan Ibnu Ishaq, atau (8 + 3 + 2),atau (8 + 5) menurut riwayat Muslim.
3.      Sembilan belas raka’at (16 + 3).
4.      Dua puluh satu raka’at (20 + 1),riwayat Abdurrazzaq.
5.      Dua puluh tiga raka’at (20 + 3),riwayat Malik, Ibn Nashr dan Al Baihaqi. Demikian ini adalah madzhab Abu Hanifah,Syafi’i, Ats Tsauri, Ahmad, Abu Daud dan Ibnul Mubarak.
6.      Dua puluh sembilan raka’at (28 +1).
7.      Tiga puluh sembilan raka’at (36 +3), Madzhab Maliki, atau (38 + 1).
8.      Empat puluh satu raka’at (38 +3), riwayat Ibn Nashr dari persaksian Shalih Mawla Al Tau’amah tentang shalatnya penduduk Madinah, atau (36 + 5) seperti dalam Al Mughni 2/167.
9.      Empatpuluh sembilan raka’at (40 +9); 40 tanpa witir adalah riwayat dari Al Aswad Ibn Yazid.
10.  Tiga puluh empat raka’at tanpa witir (di Basrah, Iraq).
11.  Dua puluh empat raka’at tanpa witir (dari Said Ibn Jubair).
12.  Enam belas raka’at tanpa witir.

BERAPA RAKA’AT TARAWIH RASULULLAH SHALLALLAHU A’ALAIHI WA SALLAM ?
 
Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam telah melakukan dan memimpin shalat tarawih, terdiri dari sebelas raka’at (8 +3). Dalilnya sebagai berikut.
1.      Hadits Aisyah Radhiyallahu anhuma : ia ditanya oleh Abu Salamah Abdur Rahman tentang qiyamul lailnya Rasul pada bulan Ramadhan, ia menjawab:
إنَّهُ كَانَ لاَ يَزِيْدُ فِي رَمَضَانَ وَلاَ فِي غَيْرِهِ عَلَى إِحْدَى عَشْرَةَ
“Sesungguhnya beliau tidak pernah menambah pada bulan Ramadhan, atau pada bulan lainnya. lebih dari sebelas raka’at. [HR Bukhari, Muslim]
Ibn Hajar berkata, “Jelas sekali, bahwa hadits ini menunjukkan shalatnya Rasul (adalah) sama semua di sepanjang tahun.”
2.      Hadits Jabir bin Abdillah Radhiyallahu anhu ia berkata: “Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam shalat dengan kami pada bulan Ramadhan 8 raka’at dan witir. Ketika malam berikutnya, kami berkumpul di masjid dengan harapan beliau shalat dengan kami. Maka kami terus berada di masjid hingga pagi, kemudian kami masuk bertanya, “Ya Rasulullah, tadi malam kami berkumpul di masjid, berharap anda shalat bersama kami,” maka beliau bersabda, “Sesungguhnya aku khawatir diwajibkan atas kalian. “[HR Thabrani, Ibnu Hibban dan Ibnu Huzaimah, dihasankan oleh Al Albani. ShalatAt Tarawih, 18; Fath Al Aziz 4/265]
3.      Pengakuan Nabi Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam tentang 8 raka’atdan 3 witir. Ubay bin Ka’ab datang kepada Rasulullah, lalu berkata,”Ya Rasulullah, ada sesuatu yang saya kerjakan tadi malam (Ramadhan). Beliau bertanya,”Apa itu, wahai Ubay?” Ia menjawab,”Para wanita di rumahku berkata,’Sesungguhnya kami ini tidak membaca Al Qur’an. Bagaimana kalau kami shalat dengan shalatmu?’ Ia berkata,”Maka saya shalat dengan mereka 8 raka’at dan witir. Maka hal itu menjadi sunnah yang diridhai. Beliau Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam tidak mengatakan apa-apa.”[HR Abu Ya’la, Thabrani dan Ibn Nashr, dihasankan oleh Al Haitsami dan Al Albani. Lihat Shalat At-Tarawih, 68].
Adapun hadits-hadits yang menjelaskan bahwa Rasulullah shalat tarawih dengan 20 raka’at, maka haditsnya tidak ada yang shahih. [Fathul Bari, 4/254; Al Hawi. 1/413; Al Fatawa Al Haditsiyah, 1.195: ShalatAt Tarawih, 19-21]

BERAPA RAKAAT TARAWIH SAHABAT DAN TABIIN PADA MASA UMAR RADHIYALLAHU ANHU?
 
Ada beberapa riwayat shahih tentang bilangan raka’at shalat tarawih para sahabat pada zaman Umar Radhiyallahu anhu . Yaitu: 11 raka’at, 13 raka’at, 21 raka’at, dan 23 raka’at. Kemudian 39 raka’at juga shahih, pada masa Khulafaur Rasyidin setelah Umar; tetapi hal ini khusus di Madinah. Berikut keterangan pada masa Umar
1.      Sebelas raka’at.
Umar Radhiyallahu anhu memerintahkan kepada Ubay danTamim Ad Dari Radhiyallahu anhuma untuk shalat 11 raka’at. Mereka membaca ratusan ayat, sampai makmum bersandar pada tongkat karena kelamaan dan selesai hampir Subuh. Demikian ini riwayat Imam Malik dari Muhammad bin Yusuf dari Saib Ibn Yazid. Imam Suyuthi dan Imam Subkhi menilai, bahwa hadits ini sangat shahih. Syaikh Al Albani juga menilai, bahwa hadits ini shahih sekali.
2.      Tiga belas raka’at.
Semua perawi dari Muhammd Ibn Yusuf mengatakan 11 raka’at, kecuali Muhammad Ibn Ishaq. Ia berkata 13 raka’at (HR Ibn Nashr), akan tetapi hadits ini sesuai dengan hadits ‘Aisyah yang mengatakan 11 raka’at. Hal ini bisa dipahami, bahwa termasuk dalam bilangan itu ialah 2 raka’at shalat Fajar, atau 2 raka’at pemula yang ringan, atau 8 raka’at ditambah 5 raka’at Witir.
3.      Dua puluh raka’at (ditambah 1 atau 3 raka’at Witir).
Abdur Razzaq meriwayatkan dari Muhammad Ibn Yusuf dengan lafadz “21 raka’at” (sanad shahih). Al Baihaqi dalam As Sunan dan Al Firyabi dalam Ash Shiyam meriwayatkan dari jalur Yazid Ibn Khushaifah dari SaibIbn Yazid, bahwa mereka- pada zaman Umar di bulan Ramadhan shalat tarawih 20 raka’at. Mereka membaca ratusan ayat, dan bertumpu ‘pada tongkat pada zaman Utsman, karena terlalu lama berdiri.

Riwayat ini dishahihkan oleh Imam Al Nawawi, Al Zaila’i, Al Aini, Ibn Al Iraqi, Al Subkhi, As Suyuthi, Syaikh Abdul Aziz bin Bazz, dan lain-lain.
Sementara itu Syaikh Al Albani menganggap, bahwa dua riwayat ini bertentangan dengan riwayat sebelumnya, tidak bisa dijama’ (digabungkan). Maka beliau memakai metode tarjih (memilih riwayat yang shahih dan meninggalkan yang lain). Beliau menyatakan, bahwa Muhammad Ibn Yusuf perawi yang tsiqah tsabit (sangat terpercaya), telah meriwayatkan dari Saib Ibn Yazid 11 raka’at. Sedangkan Ibn Khushaifah yang hanya pada peringkat tsiqah (terpercaya) meriwayatkan 21 raka’at. Sehingga hadits Ibn Khushaifah ini -menurut beliau-adalah syadz (asing, menyalahi hadits yang lebih shahih). [Al Majmu’, 4/32; Shalat At Tarawih, 46; Al Ijabat Al Bahiyyah. 16-18]
          10 keutamaan bulan ramadhan yang paling utama   


Bulan Ramadhan adalah bulan Ibadah, bulan berbuat baik, bulan kebaikan, bulan simpati, bulan pembebasan dari neraka, bulan kemenangan atas nafsu, dan kemenangan. Pada bulan tersebut, Allah melimpahkan banyak kerunia kepada hamba-hamba-Nya dengan dilipatgandakan pahala dan diberi jaminan ampunan dosa bagi siapa yang bisa memanfaatkannya dengan semestinya. Berikut ini kami hadirkan beberapa amal-amal utama yang sangat ditekankan pada bulan Ramadhan.
 10 keutamaan bulan ramadhan yang paling utama:
Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda,
كُلُّ عَمَلِ ابْنِ آدَمَ يُضَاعَفُ الْحَسَنَةُ عَشْرُ أَمْثَالِهَا إِلَى سَبْعمِائَة ضِعْفٍ قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَّا الصَّوْمَ فَإِنَّهُ لِي وَأَنَا أَجْزِي بِهِ يَدَعُ شَهْوَتَهُ وَطَعَامَهُ مِنْ أَجْلِي لِلصَّائِمِ فَرْحَتَانِ فَرْحَةٌ عِنْدَ فِطْرِهِ وَفَرْحَةٌ عِنْدَ لِقَاءِ رَبِّهِ وَلَخُلُوفُ فِيهِ أَطْيَبُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مِنْ رِيحِ الْمِسْكِ
“Setiap amalan anak Adam akan dilipatgandakan pahalanya, satu kebaikan akan berlipat menjadi 10 kebaikan sampai 700 kali lipat. Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla  berfirman, ‘Kecuali puasa, sungguh dia bagianku dan Aku sendiri yang akan membalasnya, karena (orang yang berpuasa) dia telah meninggalkan syahwatnyadan makannya karena Aku’. Bagi orang yang berpuasa mendapat dua kegembiraan; gembira ketika berbuka puasa dan gembria ketika berjumpa Tuhannya dengan puasanya. Dan sesungguhnya bau tidak sedap mulutnya lebih wangi di sisi Allah dari pada bau minyak kesturi.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim, lafadz milik Muslim)
Dari Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu, Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda:
مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ
“Siapa berpuasa Ramadhan imanan wa ihtisaban (dengan keimanan dan mengharap pahala), diampuni dosa-dosanya yang telah lalu.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim)
Tidak diragukan lagi, pahala yang besar ini tidak diberikan kepada orang yang sebatas meninggalkan makan dan minum semata. Ini sesuai dengan sabda Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam,
مَنْ لَمْ يَدَعْ قَوْلَ الزُّورِ وَالْعَمَلَ بِهِ فَلَيْسَ لِلَّهِ حَاجَةٌ فِي أَنْ يَدَعَ طَعَامَهُ وَشَرَابَهُ
“Barang siapa yang tidak meninggalkan perkataan dusta dan perbuatannya, maka Allah tidak butuh dengan ia meninggalkan makan dan minumnya.” (HR. Al-Bukhari dari Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu) ini merupakan kiasan bahwa Allah tidak menerima puasa tersebut.
Dalam sabdanya yang lain, “Jika pada hari salah seorang kalian berpuasa, maka janganlah ia mengucapkan kata-kata kotor, membaut kegaduhan, dan juga tidak melakukan perbuatan orang-orang bodoh. Dan jika ada orang mencacinya atau mengajaknya berkelahi, maka hendaklah ia mengatakan, ‘Sesungguhnya aku sedang berpuasa’.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim)
Maka jika Anda berpuasa, maka puasakan juga pendengaran, penglihatan, lisan, dan seluruh anggota tubuh. Jangan jadikan sama antara hari saat berpuasa dan tidak.
Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda,
مَنْ قَامَ رَمَضَانَ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ
“Barangsiapa yang menunaikan shalat malam di bulan Ramadan dengan keimanan dan mengharap pahala, diampuni dosa-dosanya yang telah lalu.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim)
Allah Ta’ala berfirman,
وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا  وَالَّذِينَ يَبِيتُونَ لِرَبِّهِمْ سُجَّدًا وَقِيَامًا
“Dan hamba-hamba Tuhan Yang Maha Penyayang itu (ialah) orang-orang yang berjalan di atas bumi dengan rendah hati dan apabila orang-orang jahil menyapa mereka, mereka mengucapkan kata-kata yang baik. Dan orang yang melalui malam hari dengan bersujud dan berdiri untuk Tuhan mereka.” (QS. Al-Furqan: 63-64)
Qiyamul lail sudah menjadi rutinitas Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam dan para sahabatnya. ‘Aisyah Radhiyallahu ‘Anha berkata, “Jangan tinggalkan shalat malam, karena sesungguhnya Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam tidak pernah meninggalkannya. Apabila beliau sakit atau melemah maka beliau shalat dengan duduk.” (HR. Abu Dawud dan Ahmad)
Umar bin Khathab Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu biasa melaksanakan shalat malam sebanyak yang Allah kehendaki sehingga apabila sudah masuk pertengahan malam, beliau bangunkan keluarganya untuk shalat, kemudian berkata kepada mereka, “al-shalah, al-Shalah.” Lalu beliau membaca:
وَأْمُرْ أَهْلَكَ بِالصَّلَاةِ وَاصْطَبِرْ عَلَيْهَا لَا نَسْأَلُكَ رِزْقًا نَحْنُ نَرْزُقُكَ وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلتَّقْوَى
“Dan perintahkanlah kepada keluargamu mendirikan salat dan bersabarlah kamu dalam mengerjakannya. Kami tidak meminta rezeki kepadamu, Kami lah yang memberi rezeki kepadamu. Dan akibat (yang baik) itu adalah bagi orang yang bertakwa.” (QS. Thaahaa: 132)
Dan Umar bin Khathab juga biasa membaca ayat berikut:
أَمَّنْ هُوَ قَانِتٌ آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ سَاجِدًا وَقَائِمًا يَحْذَرُ الآخِرَةَ وَيَرْجُو رَحْمَةَ رَبِّهِ
“(Apakah kamu hai orang musyrik yang lebih beruntung) ataukah orang yang beribadah di waktu-waktu malam dengan sujud dan berdiri, sedang ia takut kepada (azab) akhirat dan mengharapkan rahmat Tuhannya?” (QS. Al-Zumar: 9)
Ibnu Umar Radhiyallahu ‘Anhuma berkata, “Luar biasa Utsman bin Affan Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu” Ibnu Abi Hatim berkata, “Sesungguhnya Ibnu Umar berkata seperti itu karena banyaknya shalat malam dan membaca Al-Qur’an yang dikerjakan amirul Mukminin Utsman bin Affan Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu sehingga beliau membaca Al-Qur’an dalam satu raka’at.”
Dan bagi siapa yang melaksanakan shalat Tarawih hendaknya mengerjakannya bersama jama’ah sehingga akan dicatat dalam golongan qaimin, karena Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam pernah bersabda, “Siapa yang shalat bersama imamnya sehingga selesai, maka dicatat baginya shalat sepanjang malam.” (HR. Ahlus Sunan)
Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam adalah manusia paling dermawan. Dan beliau lebih demawan ketika di bulan Ramadhan. Beliau menjadi lebih pemurah dengan kebaikan daripada angin yang berhembus dengan lembut. Beliau bersabda, “Shadaqah yang paling utama adalah shadaqah pada bulan Ramadhan.” (HR. al-Tirmidzi dari Anas)
Sesungguhnya shadaqah di bulan Ramadhan memiliki keistimewaan dan kelebihan, maka bersegeralah dan semangat dalam menunaikannya sesuai kemampuan. Dan di antara bentuk shadaqah di bulan ini adalah:
a. memberi makan
Allah menerangkan tentang keutamaan memberi makan orang miskin dan kurang mampu yang membutuhkan, dan balasan yang akan didapatkan dalam firman-Nya:
وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَى حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنْكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا إِنَّا نَخَافُ مِنْ رَبِّنَا يَوْمًا عَبُوسًا 
قَمْطَرِيرًا  فَوَقَاهُمُ اللَّهُ شَرَّ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ وَلَقَّاهُمْ نَضْرَةً وَسُرُورًا  وَجَزَاهُمْ بِمَا صَبَرُوا جَنَّةً وَحَرِيرًا
“Dan mereka memberikan makanan yang disukainya kepada orang miskin, anak yatim dan orang yang ditawan. Sesungguhnya Kami memberi makanan kepadamu hanyalah untuk mengharapkan keridaan Allah, kami tidak menghendaki balasan dari kamu dan tidak pula (ucapan) terima kasih. Sesungguhnya Kami takut akan (azab) Tuhan kami pada suatu hari yang (di hari itu) orang-orang bermuka masam penuh kesulitan. Maka Tuhan memelihara mereka dari kesusahan hari itu, dan memberikan kepada mereka kejernihan (wajah) dan kegembiraan hati. Dan Dia memberi balasan kepada mereka karena kesabaran mereka (dengan) surga dan (pakaian) sutera.” (QS. Al-Nsan: 8-12)
Para ulama salaf sangat memperhatikan memberi makan dan mendahulukannya atas banyak macam ibadah, baik dengan mengeyangkan orang lapar atau memberi makan saudara muslim yang shalih. Dan tidak disyaratkan dalam memberi makan ini kepada orang yang fakir. Rasullullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda, “Wahai manusia, tebarkan salam, berilah makan, sambunglah silaturahim, dan shalatlah malam di saat manusia tidur, niscaya engkau akan masuk surga dengan selamat.” (HR. Ahmad, Tirmidzi, dan dishahihkan oleh Al-Albani)
Sebagian ulama salaf ada yang mengatakan, “Aku mengundang sepuluh sahabatku lalu aku beri mereka makan dengan makanan yang mereka suka itu lebih aku senangi dari pada membebaskan sepuluh budak dari keturunan Islmail.”
Ada beberapa ulama yang memberi makan orang lain padahal mereka sedang berpuasa, seperti Abdullan bin Umar, Dawud al-Tha’i, Malik bin Dinar, dan Ahmad bin Hambal Radhiyallahu ‘Anhum. Dan adalah Ibnu Umar, tidaklah berbuka kecuali dengan anak-anak yatim dan orang-orang miskin.
Ada juga sebagian ulama salaf lain yang memberi makan saudara-saudaranya sementara ia berpuasa, tapi ia tetap membantu mereka dan melayani mereka, di antaranya adalah al-Hasan al-Bashri dan Abdullah bin Mubarak.
Abu al-Saur al-Adawi berkata: Beberapa orang dari Bani Adi shalat di masjid ini. Tidaklah salah seorang mereka makan satu makananpun dengan sendirian. Jika ia dapatkan orang yang makan bersamanya maka ia makan, dan jika tidak, maka ia keluarkan makanannya ke masjid dan ia memakannya bersama orang-orang dan mereka makan bersamanya.
b. Memberi hidangan berbukan bagi orang puasa
Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda, “Siapa yang memberi berbuka orang puasa, baginya pahala seperti pahala orang berpuasa tadi tanpa dikurangi dari pahalanya sedikitpun.” (HR. Ahmad, Nasai, dan dishahihkan al-Albani)
Dan dalam hadits Salman Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu, “Siapa yang memberi makan orang puasa di dalam bulan Ramadhan, maka diampuni dosanya, dibebaskan dari neraka, dan baginya pahala seperti pahala orang berpuasa tadi tanpa dikurangi sedikitpun dari pahalanya.”
. . . Sesungguhnya shadaqah di bulan Ramadhan memiliki keistimewaan dan kelebihan, maka bersegeralah dan semangat dalam menunaikannya sesuai kemampuan. . .
Dan ini sudah kami ulas dalam tulisan yang lalu berjudul: Teladan Salaf Dalam Membaca Al-Qur’an di Bulan Ramadhan.
5. Duduk di masjid sampai matahari terbit
Adalah Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam, apabila shalat Shubuh beliau duduk di tempat shalatnya hinga matahari terbit (HR. Muslim). Imam al-Tirmidzi meriwayatkan dari Anas, dari Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam, beliau bersabda,
مَنْ صَلَّى الْغَدَاةَ فِي جَمَاعَةٍ ثُمَّ قَعَدَ يَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ ثُمَّ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ كَانَتْ لَهُ كَأَجْرِ حَجَّةٍ وَعُمْرَةٍ تَامَّةٍ تَامَّةٍ تَامَّةٍ
“Siapa shalat Shubuh dengan berjama’ah, lalu duduk berdzikir kepada Allah hingga matahari terbit, lalu shalat dua raka’at, maka baginya seperti pahala haji dan umrah sempurna, sempurna , sempurna.” (Dishahihkan oleh Syaikh Al-Albani)
Keutamaan ini berlaku pada semua hari, lalu bagaimana kalau itu dikerjakan di bulan Ramadhan? Maka selayaknya kita bersemangat menggapainya dengan tidur di malam hari, meneladani orang-orang shalih yang bangun di akhirnya, dan menundukkan nafsu untuk tunduk kepada Allah dan bersemangat untuk menggapai derajat tinggi di surga.
Adalah Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam senantiasa beri’tikaf pada bulan Ramadhan selama 10 hari. Dan pada tahun akan diwafatkannya, beliau beri’tikaf selama 20 hari (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim).  I’tikaf merupakan ibadah yang berkumpul padanya bermacam-macam ketaatan; berupa tilawah, shalat, dzikir, doa dan lainnya. Bagi orang yang belum pernah melaksanakannya, i’tikaf dirasa sangat berat. Namun, pastinya ia akan mudah bagi siapa yang Allah mudahkan. Maka siapa yang berangkat dengan niat yang benar dan tekad kuat pasti Allah akan menolong. Dianjrukan i’tikaf di sepuluh hari terakhir adalah untuk mendapatkan Lailatul Qadar. I’tikaf merupakan kegiatan menyendiri yang disyariatkan, karena seorang mu’takif (orang yang beri’tikaf) mengurung dirinya untuk taat kepada Allah dan mengingat-Nya, memutus diri dari segala kesibukan yang bisa mengganggu darinya, ia mengurung hati dan jiwanya untuk Allah dan melaksanakan apa saja yang bisa mendekatkan kepada-Nya. Maka bagi orang beri’tikaf, tidak ada yang dia inginkan kecuali Allah dan mendapat ridha-Nya.
Telah diriwayatkan dari Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam, beliau bersabda,
عُمْرَةً فِي رَمَضَانَ حَجَّةٌ
“Umrah pada bulan Ramadhan menyerupai haji.” (HR. Al-Bukhari dan Muslim) dalam riwayat lain, “seperti haji bersamaku.” Sebuah kabar gembira untuk mendapatkan pahala haji bersama Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam.
Allah Ta’ala berfirman,
إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ  وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
“Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkannya (Al Qur’an) pada malam kemuliaan. Dan tahukah kamu apakah malam kemuliaan itu? Malam kemuliaan itu lebih baik dari seribu bulan.” (QS. Al-Qadar: 1-3)
Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda,
وَمَنْ قَامَ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ
“Dan siapa shalat pada Lailatul Qadar didasari imandan mengharap pahala, diampuni dosa-dosanya yang telah lalu.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim)
Adalah Nabi Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam berusaha mencari Lailatul Qadar dan memerintahkan para sahabatnya untuk mencarinya. Beliau juga membangunkan keluarganya pada malam sepuluh hari terakhir dengan harapan mendapatkan Lailatul Qadar. Dalam Musnad Ahmad, dari Ubadah secara marfu’, “Siapa yang shalat untuk mencari Lailatul Qadar, lalu ia mendapatkannya, maka diampuni dosa-dosa-nya yang telah lalu dan akan datang.” (Di dalam Sunan Nasai juga terdapat riwayat serupa, yang dikomentari oleh Al-hafidz Ibnul Hajar: isnadnya sesuai dengan syarat Muslim)
. . . Lailatul Qadar berada di sepuluh hari terakhir Ramadhan, tepatnya pada malam-malam ganjilnya. Dan malam yang paling diharapkan adalah malam ke 27-nya, sebagaimana yang diriwayatkan Muslim. . .
Terdapat beberapa keterangan, sebagian ulama salaf dari kalangan sahabat tabi’in, mereka mandi dan memakai wewangian pada malam sepuluh hari terakhir untuk mencari Lailatul Qadar yang telah Allah muliakan dan tinggikan kedudukannya. Wahai orang-orang yang telah menyia-nyiakan umurnya untuk sesuatu yang tak berguna, kejarlah yang luput darimu pada malam kemuliaan ini. 
Sesungghnya satu amal shalih yang dikerjakan di dalamnya adalah nilainya lebih baik daripada amal yang dikerjakan selama seribu bulan di luar yang bukan Lailatul Qadar. Maka siapa yang diharamkan mendapatkan kebaikan di dalamnya, sungguh dia orang yang jauhkan dari kebaikan.
Lailatul Qadar berada di sepuluh hari terakhir Ramadhan, tepatnya pada malam-malam ganjilnya. Dan malam yang paling diharapkan adalah malam ke 27-nya, sebagaimana yang diriwayatkan Muslim, dari Ubai bin Ka’ab Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu, “Demi Allah, sungguh aku tahu malam keberapa itu, dia itu malam yang Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam memerintahkan kami untuk shalat, yaitu malam ke-27.” Dan Ubai bersumpah atas itu dengan mengatakan, “Dengan tanda dan petunjuk yang telah dikabarkan oleh Ramadhan Shallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam kepada kami, matahari terbit di pagi harinya dengan tanpa sinar yang terik/silau.”
Dari ‘Aisyah, ia berkata: Wahai Rasulullah, jika aku mendapatkan Lailatul Qadar, apa yang harus aku baca? Beliau menjawab, “Ucapkan:
 اللَّهُمَّ إنَّك عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
“Ya Allah, sesungguhnya Engkau Maha Pemaaf, menyukai pemberian maaf maka ampunilah aku.” (HR. Ahmad dan al-Tirmidzi, dishahihkan Al-Albani)
Sesungguhnya malam dan siang Ramadhan adalah waktu-waktu yang mulia dan utama, maka manfaatkanlah dengan memperbanyak dzikir dan doa, khususnya pada waktu-waktu istijabah, di antaranya:
– Saat berbuka, karena seorang yang berpuasa saat ia berbuka memiliki doa yang tak ditolak.
– Sepertiga malam terkahir saat Allah turun ke langit dunia dan berfirman, “Adakah orang yang meminta, pasti aku beri. Adakah orang beristighfar, pasti Aku ampuni dia.”
– Beristighfar di waktu sahur, seperti yang Allah firmankan, “Dan di akhir-akhir malam mereka memohon ampun (kepada Allah).” (QS. Al-Dzaariyat: 18)
. . . Sesungguhnya berpuasa tidak hanya sebatas meninggalkan makan, minum, dan hubungan suami istri, tapi juga mengisi hari-hari dan malamnya dengan amal shalih. . .
dengan memperbanyak bernbuat baik di bulan ramadhan, diharapkan tuhan segera melihat, bukan untuk kita mendapatkan pahala dari kebaikan itu, tapi karena kita berharap tuhan akan semakin baik kepada kita, dengan memberikan apapun yang kita inginkan baik itu berbentuk ampunan, ataupun berbentuk kemudahan untuk semua persoalan yang kita hadapi atau bahkan berupa kemudahan dalam mencari rizki yang halal dan baik.
Demikian 10 ibadah yang paling utama untu meraih keutamaan dan keistimewaan bulan ramadhan,,
tulisan diatas juga bisa anda semua gunakan sebagai contoh pidato agama ataupun sebagai referensi anda dalam memberikan sambutan ceramah agama teutaa untuk disampaikan dibulan ramadhan,,, semoga bermanfaat.!!!!

           Pengertian Iman, Islam, dan Ihsan   

1.      Pengertian Iman
Iman adalah kepercayaan kepada Allah Tuhan Yang Maha Esa. Syahadatain(dua persaksian: bersaksi bahwa tiada Tuhan yang disembah kecuali Allah dan Muhammad adalah Rasulullah) merupakan suatu pernyataan sebagai kunci dalam memasuki gerbang Islam. Pernyataan bahwa hanya Allah (Yang Esa) satu-satunya Tuhan yang wajib disembah, merupakan pokok ajaran yang menjadi misi segala Nabi yang pernah diutus oleh Allah ke bumi di sepanjang sejarah kehidupan manusia.
Ar- Raghib al-Ashfahani (ahli kamus Al-quran) mengatakan, iman didalam Al-quran terkadang digunakan untuk arti iman yang hanya sebatas dibibir saja padahal dalam hati dan perbuatannya tidak beriman, terkadang digunakan untuk arti iman yang hanya terbatas pada perbuatannya saja, sedang hati dan ucapannya tidak beriman dan ketiga kata iman terkadang digunakan untuk arti iman yang diyakini dalam hati, diucapkan dengan lisan, dan di amalkan dalam perbuatan sehari-hari.[1]
Iman itu perkataan dan perbuatan, yaitu perkataan hati dan lisan, dan perbuatan hati, lisan, dan anggota badan. Ia bertambah karena ketaatan dan berkurang karena maksiat, dan orang yang beriman itu bertingkat keimanannya.
Firman Allah
ولكن الله حبب اليكم الا يمان و زينه في قلوبكم ...
“… tetapi Allah menjadikanmu cinta kepada keimanan dan menjadikan iman itu indah dalam hatimu…” (al-hujurat: 7)
Perkataan dan perbuatan adalah makna syahadatain (persaksian tidak ada tuhan selain Allah dan Muhammad utusan Allah), yang seseorang tidak sah memeluk agama Islam tanpa dua kalimat syahadat ini. Ia merupakan amalan hati dengan mengitikadkannya dan amalan lisan dengan mengucapkannya dengan segala konsekuensi. Allah berfirman,
وماكان الله ليضيع ايما نكم
“… dan Allah tidak akan menyia-nyiakan imanmu…” (al- Baqarah: 143)
Yang dimaksudkan oleh “imanmu” dalam ayat ini adalah shalat yang dilaksanakan dengan menghadap ke Baitul Maqdis sebelum diciptakannya perubahan kiblat.
Di sini, shalat secara keseluruhan disebut iman, karena shalat menghimpun perbuatan hati, lisan, dan anggota badan. Nabi Muhammad SAW juga menjadikan jihad, ibadah lailatul qadar, puasa Ramadhan, shalat tarawih, dan shalat lima waktu sebagai iman. Ketika beliau ditanya tentang amalan yang paling utama, beliau menjawab, “Iman kepada Allah dan rasul-Nya.”
Berikut ini dalil yang menunjukkan bertambah dan berkurangnya iman
المؤمنين ليزدادوا ايمانا مع ايمانهم
“… supaya keimanan mereka bertambah di samping keimanan mereka (yang telah ada)…” (al-Fath: 4)
ىهد وزدنهم
“… dan kami tambahkan kepada mereka petunjuk.” (al-Kahfi: 13)
“… adapun orang-orang yang beriman, maka surat ini menambah imannya…” (at-Taubah: 124)[2]

2.      Pengertian Islam
Secara genetik kata Islam berasal dari Bahasa Arab terambil dari kata “salima” yang berarti selamat sentosa. Dari kata itu dibentuk kata “aslama” yang berarti menyerah, tunduk, patuh, dan taat.  Kata “aslama” menjadi pokok kata Islam. Sebab itu orang yang melakukan “aslama” atau masuk islam dinamakan Muslim. Selanjutnya dari kata “salima” juga terbentuk kata “silmun” dan “salamun” yang berarti damai. Karenanya seorang yang menyatakan dirinya muslim adalah harus damai dengan Allah dan dengan sesama manusia.
Penyebutan orang-orang Barat terhadap Islam sebagai Moehammedanism dan Moehamadan, bukan saja tidak tepat tetapi salah secara prinsipil (Nasrudin Razak, 1985: 55). Istilah ini mengandung arti Islam adalah paham Muhammad atau pemujaan terhadap Muhammad, sebagaimana perkataan Kristen dan Kekristenan yang mengadung arti pemujaan terhadap Kristus.[3]
Islam artinya penyerahan diri kepada Allah, tuhan yang Maha Kuasa, Maha Perkasa, dan Maha Esa. Penyerahan itu diikuti dengan kepatuhan dan ketaatan untuk menerima dan melakukan apa saja perintah dan larangan-Nya. Tunduk pada aturan dan undang-undang yang diturunkan kepada manusia melalui hamba pilihan-Nya (para rasul). Aturan dan undang-undang yang dibuat oleh Allah itu dikenal dengan istilah “Syari’ah”.Kadang-kadang syari’ah itu disebut juga din (agama). Innaddina ‘indallahi al-islam (sesungguhnya agama di sisi Allah adalah Islam QS. 3:19), karena memang agama di sisi Allah ialah penyerahan yang sesunggguhnya kepada Allah. Maka walaupun seseorang mangaku memeluk agama Islam, kalau tidak menyerah yang sesungguhnya kepada Allah, tidak mau mematuhi suruhan dan larangannya, belumlah dia Islam.
Dengan memasuki Islam seseorang akan selamat, damai, dan sentosa dalam kehidupan yang seimbang lahir dan batin, dunia dan akhirat. Islam memang mempunyai arti (selamat, damai, dan sentosa), suatu agama yang diturunkan oleh Allah kepada segenap nabi dan rasul-Nya. Allah jua menegaskan bahwa siapa saja yang memeluk agama selain Islam tidak akan diterima (QS. 3:85), karena itu tentulah para nabi membawa dan memeluk ini, karena Islam memang diperuntukkan bagi segenap manusia. Ajaran Islam itu, oleh karenanya merata, mengatur manusia dalam segala seginya, bukan semata mengatur hubungan manusia dengan Tuhannya, melainkan juga mengatur hubungan manusia dengan sesamanya, dan manusia dengan lingkungannya (alam semesta).

3.      Pengertian Ihsan
Ihsan, menurut kamus berasal dari kata: ahsana-yuhsinu-ihsanberarti, baik, bagus, kebajikan atau saleh. Menurut makna istilah, seperti dikemukakan dalam hadits nabi di permulaan tulisan ialah: “engkau menyembah Allag seakan-akan engkau melihat-Nya, dan jika engkau tidak dapat melihat-Nya, sesungguhnya Ia melihat engkau.”[4]

B.     Rukun-rukun Iman dan Islam
1.      Rukun Iman
a.       Iman Kepada Allah
Yakni beriman kepada rububiyyah Allah Swt, maksudnya : Allah adalah Tuhan, Pencipta, Pemilik semesta, dan Pengatur segala urusan, Beriman kepada uluhiyyah Allah Swt, maksudnya: Allah sajalah tuhan yang berhak di sembah, dan semua sesembahan selain-Nya adalah batil, iman kepada Nama-Nama dan Sifat-Sifat-Nya maksudnya: bahwasanya Allah Swt, memiliki nama-nama yang mulia, dan sifat-sifat-Nya yang sempurna serta agung sesuai yang ada dalam Al-quran dan Sunnah Rasul-Nya.
b.      Iman Kepada Malaikat-malaikat Allah
Malaikat adalah hamba Allah yang mulia, mereka diciptakan oleh Allah untuk beribadah kepada-Nya, serta tunduk dan patuh menta’ati-Nya, Allah telah membebankan kepada mereka berbagai tugas, Diantaranya adalah : Jibril tugasnya menyampaikan wahyu, Mikail mengurusi hujan dan tumbuh-tumbuhan, Israfil meniup sangsakala di hari kiamat, Izrail (malaikat maut), Raqib , Atit, mencatat amal perbutan manusia, Malik menjaga neraka, Ridwan menjaga surga, dan malaikat-malaikat yang lain yang hanya Allah Swt yang dapat mengetahuinya.
c.       Iman Kepada Kitab-kitab Allah
Allah yang Maha Agung dan Mulia telah menurunkan kepada para Rasul-Nya kitab-kitab, mengandung petunjuk dan kebaikan. Diantaranya: kitab taurat diturunkan kepada Nabi Musa, Injil diturunkan kepada Nabi Isa, Zabur diturunkan kepada Nabi Daud, Shuhuf Nabi Ibrahim dan Nabi Musa, Al-quran diturunkan Allah Swt, kepada Nabi Muhammad Saw. Allah telah menjamin untuk menjaga dan memeliharanya, karena ia akan menjadi hujjah atas semua makhluk, sampai hari kiamat.
d.      Iman Kepada Rasul Allah
Allah telah mengutus kepada maakhluk-Nya para rasul, rasul pertama adalah Nuh dan yang terakhir adalah Muhammad Saw, dan semua itu adalah manusia biasa, tidak memiliki sedikitpun sifat ketuhanan, mereka adalah hamba-hamba Allah yang dimuliakan dengan kerasulan. Dan Allah telah mengakhiri semua syari’at dengan syari’at yang diajarkan oleh Nabi Muhammad Saw,yang diutus untuk seluruh manusia, maka tidak ada nabi sesudahnya.
e.       Iman Kepada Hari Akhir
Yaitu hari kiamat, tidak ada hari lagi setelahnya, ketika Allah membangkitkan manusia dalam keadaan hidup untuk kekal ditempat yang penuh kenikmatan atau ditempat siksaan yang amat pedih. Beriman kepada hari akhir meliputi beriman kepada semua yang akan terjadi setelah itu, seperti kebangkitan dan hisab, kemudian surga atau neraka.[5]
f.       Iman Kepada Qadha’ dan Qadar
Iman kepada qada dan qadar Allah adalah salah satu sendi akidah Islam. Dalam pembicaraan sehari-hari disingkat dengan sebutan takdir (taqdir). Berbicara tentang takdir Allah memang bukan sesuatu yang mudah. Sebab yang kita bicarakan langsung menyangkut kehendak Tuhan terhadap makhluk-makhluk-Nya.
Beriman kepada qada dan qadar Allah adalah rukun keenam dari rukun iman. Sebagaimana dalam jawaban Rasulullah ketika ditanya oleh Jibril tentang iman, beliau bersabda:
“Engkau beriman krpada Allah, para malaikat-Nya, kitab-kitab-Nya, hari akhir, dan engkau beriman kepada qada-Nya, yang baik maupun yang buruk.” (HR.Buhkari dan Muslim)
Seperti yang dinyatakan dalam Al-Qur’an surah An-Naml [27]: 65 yang artinya “katakanlah tak seorang pun di laangit maupun di bumi yang mengetahui perkara gaib kecuali Allah.”[6]

2.      Rukun Islam
a.       2  Kalimat Syahadat
Dua kalimat syahadat itu adalah laksana anak kunci yang dengannya manusia masuk ke dalam alam keselamatan (Islam). Sebagaimana keterangan Hadits Nabi : “dari Mu’az berkata, aku mendengar Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda: barangsiapa yang akhir katanya laa ilaaha illallaah, maka dia pasti masuk surga.”
Kalimat “laa ilaaha illallah” tersusun dalam bentuk dimulai dengan peniadaan, yaitu tiada tuhan, baru kemudian disusul dengan suatu penegasan : “melaikan Allah!”. Ini berarti bahwa seorang muslim dalam hidupnya harus membersihkan segala macam tuhan, kepercayaan, keyakinan, aqidah, dan lain-lain sebagainya lebih dahulu. Yang ada dalam kalbunya hanyalah satu tuhan, satu kepercayaan, satu keyakinan dan satu aqidah ialah hanya kepada Zat yang bernama Allah s.w.t.
b.      Shalat
Allah telah mensyari’atkan shalat 5 waktu setiap hari sebagai hubungan antara seorang muslim dengan Tuhannya. Didalamnya dia bermunajat dan berdo’a kepada-Nya, disamping agar menjadi pencegah bagi muslim dari perbuatan keji dan mungkar. Dan Alah telah menyiapkan bagi yang menunaikannya kebaikan dalam agama dan kemantapan iman serta ganjaran, baik cepat maupun lambat. Maka  dengan demikian seorang hamba akan mendapatkan ketenangan jiwa dan kenyamanan raga yang akan membuatnya bahagia di dunia dan akhirat.
Shalat terdiri dari :
1)   Shalat wajib
a)      Shalat dzuhur
b)      Shalat ashar
c)      Shalat magrib
d)     Shalat Isya’
e)      Shalat subuh
2)   Shalat sunnah.
a)      Shalat rawatib
b)      Shalat dhuha

d)     Shalat witir
e)      Shalat gerhana matahari dan shalat gerhana bulan
f)       Shalat 2 hari raya
g)      Shalat istiharah
h)      Shalat tasbih[7]
c.       Puasa
Puasa adalah salah satu Rukun Islam yang mulai disyariatkan pada tahun ke II Hijriah. Kata puasa berasal dari bahasa arab “ الصَّوْمُ ” yang berarti menahan (إمساك). Jadi, puasa menurut bahasa artinya “menahan”. Secara Terminologi, Puasa Adalah
إمساك عن مفطر بنية مخصوصة جميع نهار قابل للصوم من مسلم عاقل طاهر من حيض و نفاس
(menahan dari sesuatu yang membatalkan puasa dengan niat yang khusus pada seluruh siang harinya orang yang melakukan puasa yang berakal, dan suci dari haidl dan nifas).
Jadi, puasa adalah menahan diri dari segala sesuatu yang membatalkan puasa mulai terbit fajar sampai terbenam matahari disertai niat dengan syarat dan rukun yang telah ditentukan. Sesuai firman Allah SWT :
...وَكُلُوْاوَاشْرَبُوْا حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمُ الْخَيْطُ الْاَبْيَضُ مِنَ الْخَيْطِ الْاَسْوَدِ مِنَ الْفَجْرِ... (البقرة : 187)
Artinya : “makan dan minumlah hingga nyata bagimu benang putih dari benang hitam yaitu fajar.” (QS. Al-Baqarah : 187)
Adapun hukum melakukan puasa Ramadlan adalah Wajib/Fardlu ‘Ain,  sesuai firman Allah SWT yang artinya :
 “ Hai orang-orang yang beriman, diwajibkan atas kamu sekalian berpuasa sebagaimana telah diwajibkan atas orang-orang sebelum kamu, supaya kamu bertaqwa.” (Qs. Al-Baqarah : 183).
Macam-macam puasa:
1)      Puasa wajib

c)      Puasa pada hari arafah
d)     Puasa pada bulan sya’ban
e)      Puasa daud
f)       Puasa senin-kamis

a)      Puasa syak
b)      Puasa pada hari-hari pertengahan bulan sya’ban

a)      Puasa pada 2 hari raya
b)      Puasa pada hari tasyrik
c)      Puasa sepanjang masa
d)     Puasa wishal

Die deutsche U21-Nationalmannschaft ist Europameister. Im Endspiel in Krakau gewinnt das Team mit den Hoffenheimern Jeremy Toljan und Nadiem Amiri mit 1:0 gegen Spanien. Toljan bereitet das Tor des Tages von Mitchell Weiser in der 40. Minute mit einer präzisen Flanke vor.

Spanien startet in Krakau gut in die Partie und wird seiner Favoritenrolle in den ersten fünf Minuten gerecht. Dann übernimmt aber die deutsche Mannschaft das Final-Kommando. Weisers Schuss pariert Arrizabalaga in der sechsten Minute. Nur 60 Sekunden später trifft Max Meyer per Kopf den Außenpfosten und wieder nur zwei Minuten später hält Maximilian Arnold aus 25 Metern einfach mal drauf - Flatterball, knapp vorbei.

Auch in der 15. Minute wird der deutsche Nachwuchs gefährlich. Serge Gnabry trifft als elf Metern volley das Außennetz. Wieder Gnabry prüft Spaniens Hintermannschaft in der 21. Minute bei einer Doppelchance. Sein erster Versuch wird geblockt, der zweite landet aus kurzer Distanz in den Armen von Arrizabalaga. Chancenlos ist Spaniens Keeper dann in der 40. Minute - Jeremy Toljan flankt fast von der Eckfahne und findet im Zentrum Mitchell Weiser. Kopfball. Bogenlampe. Drin. Die Führung. Das 1:0. Wie sicher später zeigen soll, das Tor zum EM-Titel.

Spanien übernimmt die Initiative

Die hoch gelobten Spanier um Marco Asensio von Champions-League-Sieger Real Madrid und Saul Niguez finden in der ersten Halbzeit offensiv kaum statt. Deutschland ist das klar bessere Team und Julian Pollersbeck erlebt im deutschen Tor erstaunlich ruhige 45 Minuten.

Nach dem Seitenwechsel ein anderes Spiel. Spanien drückt und drängt. Die deutsche U21 muss vor allem in den ersten 15 Minuten der zweiten Halbzeit einen Sturmlauf der Spanier meistern. Danach findet das Kuntz-Team wieder besser in die Partie, erspielt sich eigene Chancen und hat auch wieder Ballbesitz-Phasen, die für Entlastung sorgen.

Ab Minute 75 kämpft Deutschland dann mit großem Willen gegen immer stärker werdende Spanier, die nun ihr Spiel aufziehen, die Tempo aufnehmen, den Ball laufen lassen und Deutschland unentwegt in der Defensive binden. In der 81. Minute wird Nadiem Amiri eingewechselt. Der Hoffenheimer soll helfen, den Vorsprung über die Zeit zu bringen. Es sollte klappen. Toljan, Amiri & Co. stemmen sich mit aller Macht gegen die anstürmenden Spanier und bringen den Sieg über die Zeit.

Zum zweiten Mal holt der deutsche Nachwuchs damit den U21-EM-Titel. Das bisher einzige Mal hatte der DFB den kontinentalen Nachwuchsvergleich 2009 gewonnen. Damals unter anderem im Team - Manuel Neuer, Mesut Özil und Manuel Neuer. Zwei Tore im damaligen Finale erzielte der heutige TSG-Stürmer Sandro Wagner.


          Joni Mitchell - Blue   
Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo raccontano la genesi e la storia di uno degli album cardine della storia del rock: “Blue” di Joni Mitchell. Quarto album della cantante canadese, pubblicato nel 1971, è tra i dischi più amati della Mitchell. Blue è una raccolta di canzoni malinconiche e poetiche che esplora le varie sfaccettature delle relazioni interpersonali a partire dall'infatuazione ('"A Case of You"), passando per l'insicurezza ("This Flight Tonight"). Le canzoni presentano dei semplici accompagnamenti di pianoforte, chitarra e dulcimer degli Apalachi. Blue fu un successo commerciale e di critica e raggiunse il ventesimo posto della Billboard Album Chart nel settembre 1971. Il singolo "Carey" raggiunse la novantatreesima posizione della Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
          Robert Baust: Abschied nach neun Jahren   

Als Co-Trainer der jüngsten Akademie-Mannschaften, der U13 und der U12, hat Robert Baust in den vergangenen neun Jahren so manche Talente kommen und gehen gesehen. Einige heutige Profis wären ohne ihn und seinen langjährigen „Chef“ Michael Kunzmann eventuell gar durchs Raster gefallen. Nun verlässt der 54-Jährige seinen Herzensverein.

So ganz hat sich Robert Baust noch nicht an die neue Situation gewöhnt. Vor allem die Montage verwirren den langjährigen Akademie-Trainer, der mit dem bisherigen U13-Cheftrainer Michael Kunzmann ein sehr erfolgreiches Gespann gebildet hat. Neun Jahre lang standen für Baust und Kunzmann immer am Montag gemeinsame Telefonate oder Treffen an, um die Trainingswoche zu planen und das vergangene Wochenende zu besprechen. Doch nun verlässt Baust den Verein, und Kunzmann wechselt auf die Stelle als Individualtrainer für die U13 und die U12.

Zu besprechen gab es an jenen Montagen seit dem Sommer 2008, dem Jahr, in dem Baust zur TSG stieß, so einiges. Zuvor war der heutige Dielheimer als DFB-Stützpunkttrainer in Steinsfurt tätig. Dort lernte er auch Kunzmann kennen, und beide merkten sofort, dass sie auf einer Wellenlänge lagen. „Wir haben ein ähnliches Verständnis von Fußball und haben uns da immer sehr gut ergänzt“, erklärt Baust.

Zunächst „Co“ bei der U12

Gemeinsam ging es für die beiden zur Saison 2008/09 zur TSG. Der damalige Koordinator für den Aufbaubereich, Xaver Zembrod, kannte die Trainer bereits vom Stützpunkt und überzeugte sie schließlich vom Wechsel. „Damals hat man gespürt, dass eine Aufbruchstimmung im Verein herrschte“, sagt Baust.

Während Kunzmann die U13 übernahm, war der gebürtige Wieslocher zunächst an der Seite von Frank Reinke, der als Dritter im Bunde vom Steinsfurter Stützpunkt zur TSG gekommen war, für die U12 zuständig. „Ich wollte aber gerne wieder mit Michael zusammenarbeiten“, erinnert sich Baust. Nach zwei Jahren erfolgte dann der Wechsel zu Kunzmanns U13, für die Baust bis zum Ende der vergangenen Saison als Co-Trainer verantwortlich war.

Erinnerungen an Neubrandenburg und Rangnick

Wenn Baust auf die Entwicklung des Vereins und der Jugendarbeit während der vergangenen Jahre zurückblickt, schwingt nicht nur Nostalgie, sondern zurecht auch etwas Stolz mit. „Am Anfang haben wir bei großen Turnieren gegen den Nachwuchs anderer Bundesligisten keine Chance gehabt. Von Jahr zu Jahr sind wir aber besser geworden.“ Sportliche Höhepunkte waren für den 54-Jährigen die Turniersiege bei den inoffiziellen Deutschen U13-Hallenmeisterschaften in Neubrandenburg in den vergangenen beiden Jahren. „Zwei Mal hintereinander vor 3.000 Zuschauern das Turnier zu gewinnen, war schon etwas Besonderes.“

Abseits von Titeln und Toren erinnert sich der 54-jährige ehemalige Oberligaspieler der SG Heidelberg-Kirchheim, des VfB Eppingen und des VfL Neckarau besonders gerne an die Mannschaftsreisen nach Katar oder den Austausch mit Ralf Rangnick. „Wir hatten damals regelmäßig Schulungen, bei denen wir unglaublich viel gelernt haben. Das war eine tolle Zeit“, so Baust.

„Haben nicht ein Mal gestritten“

Zu dieser tollen Zeit habe jedoch vor allem die enge und harmonische Zusammenarbeit mit Kunzmann aber auch mit dem langjährigen U13-Betreuer Jürgen Weber beigetragen, wie Baust betont. „Wir haben uns in all den Jahren nicht ein Mal gestritten.“ Das Trainerduo Kunzmann/Baust war sich auch häufig bei der Bewertung von Spielern einig. „Wir haben auch andere Dinge in Spielern gesehen – etwa ob die Spieler Typen sind, die Wille mitbringen.“

Spieler wie die heutigen Profis Philipp Ochs oder Benedikt Gimber wären woanders aufgrund körperlicher oder technischer Defizite durchgefallen, erzählt Baust. „Dass die beiden solch eine Entwicklung genommen haben, freut einen dann natürlich ungemein.“

Techniktraining im Fokus

Mit technischen Defiziten waren die Nachwuchstalente bei Baust genau an der richtigen Adresse. Im täglich Training legte der frühere Verteidiger viel Wert auf Technikschulung. „Daran habe ich mit den Jungs immer sehr pedantisch gearbeitet. Ballannahme, Finten oder auch mal Hüftdrehstöße – all so was habe ich immer wieder üben lassen.“

Die Leidenschaft fürs Trainieren ist bei Robert Baust nach wie vor zu spüren – genauso wie die Verbundenheit zur TSG. Unmittelbar eine neue Aufgabe will der Familienvater nicht übernehmen. „Aktuell habe ich das nicht vor, aber man kann natürlich nie wissen, was kommt.“ Bei einer Variante würde Baust aber höchstwahrscheinlich schnell wieder schwach werden. „Ich würde gerne wieder was zusammen mit Michael machen.“ Dann wären Baust und Kunzmann, die beiden Brüder im Geiste, wieder vereint.


          Amy Winehouse   
Amy Winehouse è stata una delle voci più originali, personali, affascinanti di questo nuovo millennio. Fin troppo brava, fin troppo autentica, tanto da mandare in malora un successo clamoroso che l'aveva portata in cima al mondo, senza che lei muovesse un solo dito per mantenerlo, per curarlo, per preservare l'incredibile prestigio che aveva guadagnato con due soli dischi, "_Frank_", del 2003, e "_ Back to black_" del 2006, quello in cui, nella famosa "Rehab", a ogni ipotesi di recupero, "rehab" per l'appunto, lei rispondeva con ironica e perentoria malizia: "no, no, no!". Amy Winehouse ha inaugurato col suo arrivo l'attuale rinascimento delle voci femminili che stanno dominando la scena. Ma lei era diversa. Sembrava venire da un mondo alieno dove non c'era l'industria della musica, dove non c'era la spasmodica ricerca del successo, dove quello che contava era solo e unicamente cantare, senza filtri, senza effetti, direttamente dalle viscere, dal profondo.

          Album Review: Prong - "Ruining Lives"   

Heads up, fans of early 90's metal. Prong is back with a new album. But before we get to just how awesome the new album is (sorry for the spoiler), I have my very own, albeit unexciting to anyone but me, Prong story.

It was back in late January, 1992. Bill Clinton was the new President, glam metal was dying a slow, painful death and "alternative music" was beginning to take hold. I had just hooked up with a local band as their biggest fan/roadie when we had the opportunity to open for Prong at the Lost Horizon club in Syracuse, NY. The trip from Albany to Syracuse is not a particularly taxing event unless, of course, you're driving through a blizzard, which we were. The drive took quite a while and we almost died once or twice but, as they say, the show must go on. Suffice it to say, we made it in one piece and the band did, in fact, open for Prong while they were supporting their "Prove You Wrong" album. Rock and roll!

The drive back to Albany was even worse but I'll save that for another day.

Since we're talking about the "Prove You Wrong" album, we might as well mention "Beg To Differ" and "Cleansing" also. These three albums, for me, put Prong near the top of the class when it came to the new face of metal in the early 90's along with Pantera and Sepultura. Prong's music was sparse and aggressive and, in my less-than-humble opinion, "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" is still one of the greats.

I am super excited at the opportunity to review the newest Prong album, "Ruining Lives". It has been nearly 24 years since "Beg To Differ" came out and the band has changed personnel a number of times since then. This time around, it's founding member Tommy Victor on vocals and guitar, Jason Christopher on bass and Art Cruz on the drums.

As far as the new album goes, it's freakin' Prong! The drums are a bit more produced than previous albums but Victor is still nailing it with his guitar sound. The music has also matured quite a bit. Where the riffs and lyrics were more minimalistic in the past, "Ruining Lives" is much more melodic in both the music and the vocals. Where Tommy Victor used to just shout (see "Prove You Wrong"), he now sings from time to time. You'll still hear some of Prong's signature sound, especially on "Absence of Light", but it has been augmented with more melodious choruses throughout.

When a band, especially a metal band, spreads its wings and ventures outside its box, an argument almost always ensues. If this album were made by a new band you had never heard of before you would think, "This is great. It sounds a little like Prong". But since Prong did, in fact, make it, I'm afraid fans of their older material will say, "Why is he SINGING? Why aren't they more pissed off?".

Make no mistake, they're still pissed off but maybe not quite AS pissed off as they were 24 years ago. Tommy Victor and Prong are a New York City band. Remember what New York was like 24 years ago? It was dirty and gritty and Prong's music reflected that grittiness. Now, we have in many places, a kinder, gentler, slightly less gritty New York and Prong's latest album seems to reflect that as well.

The album starts with a handful of kick ass songs but really shifts into high gear in the middle of the record beginning with "Absence Of Light", "The Book Of Change" and "Self Will Run Riot".

Prong really stretches its legs with the poly-rhythmic "Come To Realize". As far as I know, this is a pretty radical departure for the band and is not unwelcomed. This is the maturity of the music I spoke of earlier. As Tommy Victor himself says, "It really is math-metal meets pure hardcore with a crazy-ass riff" and I couldn't agree more.

I didn't love, love, love everything on "Ruining Lives" but I did like it all a lot. It's the same Prong you know and love with a few added features for those of us who have grown along with the music. My days of roadie-ing have long since passed but Prong will always have a special place in the old memory banks. And now, thanks to this new album, we can start a whole new chapter. Rock on!

          The inglorious clique   
With hindsight, everyone is right, although one must admit that whoever kept repeating Simon Busuttil’s battle cry was completely wrong. Imitating someone will not make you a man. Until a month ago, I had thousands of people calling me and asking why I had made clear-cut declarations and hundreds more urging me to wait for the right time and then react. The truth is that there is no right time in a dark era. The right thing to do is to end it. The Nationalist Party is exactly in the middle of such a process. Like many others, I fought tooth and nail to get rid of all the negative elements that were still there till 2013. The best I could manage was to overcome the malicious obstacles as all the rest was in a checkmate and everything set to implode. Since the very first day in the hot seat, I had asked Busuttil to avoid making any scenes. You could tell from his eyes that he did not know otherwise, though I wanted to give him time to prove himself. As he walked the talk we could see his lack of vision, his terrible sense of judgements and a softy trying to play the bully. His insecurities rocked the party structures in a manner that anyone in his senses and with a hint of...
          Bret Stephens and MSNBC’s hiring spree: The network keeps moving right   


Sarah Wasko / Media Matters

Update: MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have agreed to part ways.

MSNBC is now a pasture for pseudo-intellectual conservatives. Climate denier and Iraq War booster Bret Stephens is just the latest right-wing hire at the network.

In recent months NBC News Chairman Andy Lack has overseen a hiring spree of right-wing pundits and former Fox News personalities. The stable includes Hugh Hewitt, Megyn Kelly, Charlie Sykes, Greta Van Susteren, and George Will. They join other conservatives at the network: Elise Jordan, Steve Schmidt, Michael Steele, Rick Tyler, Nicolle Wallace, and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough. This is to say nothing of NBC News contributor and Trump apologist Mark Halperin; and given their frequent appearances, it may be just a matter of time until David Frum, a speechwriter for then-President George W. Bush, former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card, and neocon Bill Kristol join the network as well.

Compared to CNN’s boorish Trumpists or the state media apparatchiks at Fox News, the common thread among MSNBC conservatives is a certain pretentious shine. They’re frequently just arguing that President Donald Trump is the wrong type of conservative, when in fact Trump is the apotheosis of everything conservatism has been careening toward for some time. (The exception is Hugh Hewitt, who is now just a huge Trump booster after vacillating during the campaign.) 

Many of these hires have direct, intimate connections to Bush, the most disastrous president in decades. Card, Frum, Jordan, and Wallace worked in the Bush administration, and Stephens, Kristol, Will, Scarborough, and Hewitt were all huge cheerleaders for the Iraq War. And that history matters. Two major media institutions, including a newspaper of record, are now paying Stephens essentially just to troll liberals with climate denial and to push America towards a war with Iran.

You can separate Lack’s hiring spree into two buckets: pundits and brands. Neither offer much value in the long run. In this media environment, opinions are cheap (including mine!). Everyone has one and most of them stink. There’s no long-term return on opinions (and no lack of people wanting to get on TV to share theirs).

Adding brands like Megyn Kelly or Greta Van Susteren is equally pointless. It’s no wonder that both of these shows have failed. There’s simply no audience for them outside the Fox News bubble. Particularly with Kelly, NBC News executives seem completely unaware that her entire show at Fox News was built around racial dog-whistling (with occasional moments of bucking the party line).

Also, as Ryan Grim noted, it is the progressive shows that Lack hasn’t touched that are succeeding the most.

Rather than spending all this money on right-wing pundits and big names, the true value-add for news networks now is reliable and aggressive journalism. That’s hard to do. It’s expensive. It’s time-consuming. But it’s ultimately what will define NBC News and MSNBC.

First up, a new beauty line called Neuma that my hair salon is promoting. They gave me a bunch of samples to try out and so far so good. Neuma is a vegan hair line, made with plant nutrients and free of sulfates and parabens. Next, I'm trying out the Neutrogena Naturals skincare line and am sold on their facial cleanser!

Commence CEO Caretsky Shares Change Management Plan for Distributors

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/30/2007 -- One of the best ways that industrial organizations have found to make sure implementations "stick" is to have the management involved. When sales training is reinforced by management, the sales skills taught during training produced a 15% permanent increase in productivity.

Management needs to be involved in more than a cosmetic fashion. A senior member of the management team needs to attend the training, and this same manager should inspect the sales activities for a period of time to make sure they continuously are consistent with the new sales skills introduced during the training.

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg/), "By implementing a formalized sales process, distributors and manufacturers are fundamentally changing the way people do their jobs on a daily basis. There will be natural resistance." Caretsky suggests to develop a lean change management plan, the following questions should be answered:

• What motivation do sales people have to use the new system?
• What potential barriers are there to implementation?
• How can I overcome those barriers?
• How will I know if the implementation is successful?
• What do I expect during the transition?
• Who can people go to if they have questions?

In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

El Gobierno fijó un aumento salarial del 20% en dos cuotas para los haberes de julio y agosto que perciben los integrantes de las Fuerzas de Seguridad.

El incremento para los efectivos de la Gendarmería, Prefectura, Policía Federal y Policía de Seguridad Aeroportuaria se formalizó a través del decreto 463 publicado este viernes en el Boletín Oficial.

La primera cuota se verá reflejada en los salarios de julio, que se cobran en los primeros días de agosto; y la segunda, en los salarios de agosto, que se cobran en los primeros días de setiembre.

En la norma, firmada por el presidente Mauricio Macri, se explicó que la medida tiene "el propósito del Gobierno Nacional de reconocer y mantener una adecuada jerarquización en relación con la capacidad, responsabilidad y dedicación que la correcta ejecución de la actividad de los integrantes de las Fuerzas de Seguridad".

El aumento en todas las jerarquías de oficiales y suboficiales de las instituciones de seguridad se aplicará en una primera cuota al 1 de julio y la segunda correspondiente al 1 de agosto.

Además, los incrementos abarcarán los suplementos que perciben los efectivos, como "cumplimiento de tareas específicas de seguridad", "mayor exigencia del servicio", "disponibilidad permanente para el cargo", entre otros.

"FELDSTEIN" is a privately owned winery located in central Israel. The head winemaker and part owner of this boutique winery, Avi Feldstein, asked us to develop a special series of labels characterizing his vision of a dynamic, diverse winery producing a rich variety of wines using chosen grapes from different locations. The labels use empty maps defined only by their coordinate borders as if to say, "we know not where the next harvest will occur".

"The spot is already located but our steps have yet to mark the path... our feet will draw the map" says Feldstein. The empty map is metaphorical as well- defining the varietals, areas, terrain, climate and history. "My winery's identity wishes to celebrate this search, the freedom and responsibility it allows and the magic it creates" adds Feldstein.

The empty map uses simple, elegant typography juxtaposed with visual elements from old maps and topographical graphics. The FELDSTEIN logo is designed using a scanned classic Hebrew wood-block typeface known as “Hatvi Hallul” designed in 1956 and is well known for its use in certificates, signs and official documents.

          Global Cyberattack Seems Intent On Havoc, Not Extortion   

A cyberattack that caused indiscriminate economic damage around the world was apparently designed to create maximum havoc in Russia’s neighbor and adversary Ukraine, security researchers said. While the rogue software used in the attack was configured as extortionate “ransomware,” that may have just been a ruse. “It is clear that this was targeted indiscriminately at Ukrainian businesses, and the Ukrainian government,” Jake Williams, president of the security firm Rendition Infosec and a former member of the U.S. National Security Agency’s elite cyberwarfare group, told The Associated Press in an online chat. “The ‘ransomware’ component is just a smokescreen (and a bad one).” UKRAINE IN PAIN Although the attack was global in its reach, Ukraine bore the brunt. Computers were disabled at banks, government agencies, energy companies, supermarkets, railways and telecommunications providers. Many of these organizations said they had recovered by Thursday, although some experts suspected that work was incomplete. “There is still a lot of damage, especially in banks,” said Victor Zhora, CEO of the Kiev cybersecurity firm InfoSafe. “ATMs are working (again) but some bank operations are still limited.” He estimated damage in “the millions of dollars, perhaps tens of millions.” And that’s just in Ukraine. Microsoft said the malware hit at least 64 nations, including Russia, Germany and the United States. “I expect that we will see additional fallout from this is the coming days,” said Williams. In Ukraine, suspicion immediately fell on hackers affiliated with Vladimir Putin’s regime, although there is no direct, public evidence tying Russia to the attack. Relations between the two nations have been tense since Moscow annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014. Pro-Russian fighters are still battling the government in eastern Ukraine. Experts have also blamed pro-Russian hackers for major cyberattacks on the Ukrainian power grid in 2015 and 2016, assaults that have turned the eastern European nation into the world’s leading cyberwarfare testing ground. A disruptive attack on the nation’s voting system ahead of 2014 national elections is also attributed to Russia. THE MOSCOW CONNECTION The malicious program, which researchers are calling NotPetya, initially appeared to be ransomware. Such malware locks up victims’ files by encrypting them, then holds them hostage while demanding payment — usually in bitcoin, the hard-to-trace digital currency. But researchers said the culprits would have been hard-pressed to make money off the scheme. They appear to have relied on a single email address that was blocked almost immediately and a single bitcoin account that collected the relatively puny sum of $10,000. Firms including Russia’s anti-virus Kaspersky Lab, said clues in the code indicate that the program’s authors would have been incapable of decrypting the data, further evidence that the ransom demands were a smoke screen. The timing was intriguing, too. The attack came the same day as the assassination of a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer and a day before a national holiday celebrating the new Ukrainian constitution signed after the breakup of the Soviet Union. “Everything being said so far does point to Russia being a leading candidate for a suspect in this attack,” said Robert M. Lee, CEO of Dragos Inc. an expert who has studied the attacks on Ukraine’s power grid. What’s most worrisome and reprehensible, said Lee, is that whoever was behind the attack was unconcerned about the indiscriminate, collateral damage it […]

Cuba tolera controvertido grafiti sobre Trump, pero encarcela a

Un grafiti del presidente estadounidense decapitado permanece a la vista
de locales y turistas en una transitada calle de La Habana, la misma
ciudad en la que un disidente fue a la cárcel por un letrero
antigubernamental.
Un grafiti de un encapuchado que sostiene la cabeza decapitada del
presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, apareció esta semana en una
pared de una transitada calle de La Habana Vieja, días después de que el
mandatario anunciara un endurecimiento en la política de EEUU hacia Cuba.

Firmado con el seudónimo "2+2=5", el dibujo puede verse en la esquina de
las calles Muralla y Bernaza, a pocos metros del Capitolio cubano y en
una zona muy visitada por turistas y locales, que consideran "polémico"
el dibujo por el fuerte mensaje de violencia que transmite, dijo a Efe
Robert, un joven habanero.

Robert confesó que siente curiosidad sobre el significado de la pintada,
que muestra a un encapuchado de raza negra sosteniendo la cabeza de
Trump, reconocible por su característico peinado y su expresión.

Sobre el encapuchado aparece un pensamiento en forma de globo con lo que
parece ser un huevo frito en su interior, y un signo de interrogación.

Mientras, sobre la cabeza de Trump el autor ha plasmado esa misma
ilustración, pero el huevo frito está tachado por una línea en diagonal,
un icono universal empleado para transmitir la idea de prohibición.

El grafiti también recuerda a la polémica fotografía de la humorista
estadounidense Kathy Griffin, en la que aparecía sujetando una cabeza
falsa de Trump, simulando una decapitación, y que suscitó fuertes
críticas tras su publicación.

Robert, que regenta una tienda de artículos religiosos frente a la pared
en la que apareció el dibujo, aseguró a Efe que no vio al artista
responsable de la pintura, que ha "atraído la atención de todo el que pasa".

El pasado 16 de junio Trump firmó en Miami una orden ejecutiva para
limitar los viajes individuales de estadounidenses a Cuba y vetar los
negocios con empresas controladas por las Fuerzas Armadas, además de
condicionar el diálogo bilateral a "pasos concretos" como la celebración
de elecciones libres en la isla, entre otros.

A pesar de que este giro en el "deshielo" bilateral puede afectar a la
normalización entre los dos países -que restablecieron vínculos
diplomáticos en julio de 2015-, el mensaje del grafiti "está un poco
fuerte" por la violencia que trasmite, insiste Odania, de visita en la
Habana desde Santiago de Cuba.

"Nosotros hallamos la actitud de Trump un poco agresiva, pero debemos
llegar a una comprensión entre Estado y Estado, para ver si hay una
mejor comunicación", dijo.

Iván de la Flor, un conductor de bicitaxis en La Habana Vieja, opinó que
la pintada sirve para "reflexionar" porque "cada cual puede hacer su
lectura".

"Ahí nunca había habido un grafiti y a la gente le llama mucho la
atención, porque estamos viviendo la época de la nueva Administración
del presidente de EEUU y su apoyo al 'bloqueo' (embargo) a Cuba", explica.

Coincide en que es "violento, porque nadie le debe arrancar la cabeza a
nadie", aunque reconoce que la decisión de Trump de limitar la llegada
de estadounidenses a la isla "afecta a la economía, al Gobierno, al
pueblo" porque "todo el que tiene que trabajar directamente con el
turismo se ve afectado".

"(El expresidente Barack) Obama flexibilizó los viajes, y el pueblo de
Cuba tenía una esperanza de que el 'bloqueo' se quitara. He hablado con
muchos turistas americanos (...) Incluso llegué a hablar con una
senadora que vino de visita y me aseguró que el 'bloqueo' lo iban a
quitar. Todavía lo estoy esperando", agregó.

"2+2=5" es una expresión usada en la novela distópica "1984" de George
Orwell, para criticar los dogmas falsos y el autoritarismo del "Gran
Hermano".

Varios grafiti con esa firma pueden verse en La Habana, en convivencia
con los profusos carteles con mensajes afines a la Revolución y donde
una pintada con un mensaje opositor al Gobierno puede llevar a la cárcel
a su autor, como fue el caso de Danilo Maldonado, conocido como "El Sexto".

"El Sexto" fue liberado en enero pasado de una prisión de máxima
seguridad en las afueras de La Habana, donde fue encerrado días después
de su detención la noche de la muerte del expresidente cubano Fidel
Castro, el 25 de noviembre de 2016, por pintar "Se fue" en las fachadas
de edificios del centro de la capital cubana.

En 2014, el grafitero intentó realizar una presentación en un parque de
La Habana con dos cerdos pintados de verde con los nombres Fidel y Raúl,
una obra inspirada en "Rebelión en la Granja" de George Orwell y fue
detenido antes de llegar al parque donde realizaría el performance.

En esa etapa estuvo 10 meses en prisión y tampoco fue llevado a juicio.
Lo liberaron sin cargos, gracias, en su opinión, a la presión ejercida a
través de las redes sociales.

          Bonito11: Немецкое барокко:Брухзальская резиденция   

Это цитата сообщения Майя_Пешкова Оригинальное сообщение

Дворец Брухзаль — комплекс зданий в стиле барокко в немецком городе Брухзаль в федеральной земле Баден-Вюртемберг. Построен в первой половине XVIII в. как новая резиденция князей-епископов Шпайера, взамен разрушенного в войне за пфальцское наследство епископского дворца в Шпайере.

Дамиан Хуго Филипп фон Шёнборн-Буххайм

Строительство дворца было инициировано шпайерским князем-епископом Дамианом Хуго Филиппом фон Шёнборн-Буххайм в 1720-х гг. и в своём основном объёме восходит к планам курмайнцского главного директора по строительству Иоганна Максимилиана фон Вельша (Johann Maximilian von Welsch, 1671—1745), под руководством которого и начались работы.

После многочисленных корректур изначального плана, в 1731 г. общий надзор за строительными работами возглавил Бальтазар Нойман, по проекту которого была возведена центральная часть основного корпуса с роскошной главной лестницей, ведущей к двум парадным залам: Княжескому и Мраморному (или Императорскому).

Balthasar Neumann 

Наряду с Нойманом, с 1731 по 1736 гг. над созданием внутреннего убранства и, прежде всего, фресок работал известный художник из Ломбардии Джованни Франческо Марчини (Giovanni Francesco Marchini, 1672—1736).

Оформление помещений в стиле рококо было произвед, ярко демонстрируют прошлое, настоящее и будущее княжества-епископства Шпайер и прославляют епископа как хранителя веры. Штукатурные работы были завершёны только в 1755 г. под руководством Иоганна Михаэля Фойхтмайера 

В результате медиатизации княжество-епископство Шпайер прекратило своё существование, и его правобережные владения на Рейне отошли в 1803 г. маркграфству Баден (левобережные территории были потеряны уже в 1792 г. в результате французских революционных войн, что было юридически закреплено в Кампо-Формийском договоре).

Bruchsal, Damianstor

Последнему епископу, Филиппу Францу Непомуку Вильдериху графу фон Вальдердорфу (Philipp Franz Nepomuk Wilderich Graf von Walderdorf, 1739—1810), было, однако, дозволено сохранить за собой княжеский титул и, кроме того, право на пожизненное использование южной части брухзальского дворца.

При этом в северной части дворца была обустроена вдовья резиденция баденской наследной принцессы Амалии Гессен-Дармштадтской. С её смертью в 1832 г. Брухзаль потерял свой блеск и выпал из большой истории.

В XIX в. дворец использовался в качестве военного госпиталя, фрески были закрашены.

Лишь в начале XX в. (с 1900 по 1909 г.) дворец был отреставрирован, и под руководством пионера охраны памятников архитектуры Фрица Хирша (Fritz Hirsch) восстановлено считавшееся утраченным красочное внешнее оформление фасадов.

В последние дни Второй мировой войны, при авиабомбардировке Брухзаля 1 марта 1945 г., дворец оказался сильно разрушен и полностью выгорел; лестница Бальтазара Ноймана чудом пережила уничтожение и стала ядром проекта восстановления дворцового комплекса.


Сегодня в брухзальском дворце, находящемся в собственности земли Баден-Вюртемберг (под управлением "Государственных замков и парков Баден-Вюртемберга"), располагаются Музей города Брухзаль и Германский музей музыкальных автоматов. Кроме того, на территории комплекса, в здании бывшей епископской канцелярии, проводит свои заседания Брухзальский окружной суд.

          Hispania Visigoda (II)

Según iba pasando el tiempo la cultura de los hispanos del Sur, los sometidos al gobierno de los musulmanes, se iba haciendo menos viva. Por un lado la conversión al Islam de varios cientos de miles de hispanos apartó a estos conversos de seguir siendo agentes creadores de cultura porque se asimilaron a otra nueva. Por otro lado los hispanos que aún mantenían la cultura visigoda poco a poco vieron reducido su margen de maniobra.
Aunque no fueron perseguidos (al menos no formalmente) sufrieron la expropiación de iglesias y monasterios, con sus tesoros culturales, reliquias y recuerdos de otra época. Fueron gravados con impuestos especiales, restringiendo el mecenazgo que pudiera haber entre ellos. Su cultura tuvo que competir con la nueva cultura musulmana (de raíz más bien Siria que árabe), que gozaba de una mejor situación y además contaba con el apoyo del poder político, del que los cristianos estaban excluidos. En consecuencia, cuando se quiebra el primer elemento de cohesión (la Iglesia), los godos que vivían en tierras islámicas solo tuvieron dos opciones, convertirse y desaparecer entre el resto de la población islámica, o emigrar al Norte cristiano.

Una situación llena de tensiones se agravó a partir de la llegada de los Omeyas a la Península. Los Omeyas, como hijos de los califas, eran también defensores de la fe islámica. Los dos primeros Omeyas no tuvieron especial interés en reprimir a los cristianos mientras éstos no se unieran a sus enemigos, pero Abd-al-Rahman II poco a poco les fue apretando las tuercas a los cristianos.
La situación estalló en el verano de 850, en Córdoba, cuando dos cristianos fueron ejecutados por blasfemia. Muchos otros cristianos protestaron por ello, y hartos ya de someterse, se dedicaron a blasfemar contra el Islam en público. Abd-al-Rahman II estaba lo bastante asentado en el trono como para no temer una revuelta, y reprimió duramente a los cristianos. Además, buscó el apoyo de la Iglesia del Sur. Pero mientras que el metropolitano de Sevilla condenó la búsqueda del martirio voluntario, el obispo de Córdoba apoyó a los mártires sin dudar.
La revuelta y los martirios voluntarios siguieron, Abd-al-Rahman murió en 852, sucediéndole su hijo Muhammad, que heredó el problema incluso agravado, puesto que tras el concilio de Córdoba el problema se había extendido a Sevilla, Mérida, Toledo, y otras ciudades. Parecía que lo que empezó siendo un conflicto religioso podía degenerar en un alzamiento general de los cristianos mozárabes.
El nuevo califa decidió cortar por lo sano. Destruyó varios monasterios (entre ellos el de Tábanos, cerca de Córdoba, que era tenido por el foco de la insurrección), confiscó iglesias, ejecutó a varios cientos de cristianos (entre ellos al obispo de Córdoba) y en definitiva, organizó la primera persecución efectiva de cristianos en Al-Andalus. Ahora a los cristianos solo les quedaba emigrar o morir.

La revuelta de los mártires llegó a su fin en torno al 860. Como resultado Sevilla y Córdoba, las capitales culturales de Hispania (y lo habían sido desde el siglo IV), y en menor medida Toledo, Mérida, y otras ciudades importantes, ya no eran centros de creación cultural de los cristianos, y ni tan siquiera podían transmitir a los reinos del Norte el legado cultural hispanogodo porque ya no quedaba nadie que lo recordase. Así, en la primera mitad del siglo IX, siglo y medio después de la conquista musulmana, llegaba a su fin la historia social y cultural del pueblo de los visigodos.

La llegada de los árabes rompió con todo el desarrollo histórico anterior, no fueron solo una super estructura de poder, como había ocurrido con los visigodos, sino que pusieron en marcha procesos que dieron como resultado una realidad no continuadora de la Hispania visigótica.
Con los conquistadores llegó, entre otras cosas, una lengua de naturaleza bien distinta a las románicas: el árabe, con sus diferentes manifestaciones escritas y orales, que se impuso como lengua oficial y de cultura.
Esta lengua actuó como superestrato del romance andalusí y como adstrato de los otros romances peninsulares. Fueron muchos los que dominaban ambas formas lingüísticas, Al-Andalus fue una sociedad bilingüe al menos hasta el siglo XI o XII.
Al romperse la sociedad hispanogoda, los hablantes románicos se distribuyeron y evolucionaron en situaciones completamente nuevas. Se continuaba con el latín de Emérita, Hispalis, Curduba o Tarraco, pero era una lengua coloquial, carente de normalización y fragmentada.
Lo que se perpetuó fue el habla de los enclaves de resistencia cristiana de la zona Astur y Pirinaica donde junto a los habitantes de la zona, se refugiaron los miembros de la maltrecha aristocracia hispanogoda y cristianos que no deseaban permanecer en Al-Andalus. Fue en esos lugares (Oviedo, León, Burgos, Barcelona…) donde nacieron los nuevos modos lingüísticos que se repartirán por la Península durante la Conquista Cristiana.

          Apresan acusado de romper cristal del vehículo de la actriz La Beba Rojas   

SANTO DOMINGO. El vocero de la Policía Nacional, Nelson Rosario informó que fue apresado el joven acusado de romper el cristal de la parte trasera del vehículo de la presentadora y actriz venezolana Reymarvi Rojas, conocida como La Beba Rojas.

Según lo citado el detenido, quien no fue identificado, está detenido en el destacamento del Mirador Sur y será traducido al ministerio público.

La también comediante acudió al despacho de Rosario la mañana de este jueves y fue remitida al destacamento, donde formalizó la querella.

Aseguró que en la institución se reciben decenas de denuncias sobre delitos que cometen los limpiavidrios, cuando no se accede a que le realicen el servicio, y detalló que lo van a enfrentar , pues son de competencia de la Policía Nacional.

“Soy de las que no generalizo jamás, respeto mucho el trabajo al trabajo de las personas, pero si tú dices que no quieres que te limpien el vidrio no hay derecho, no hay justificación alguna para que te lancen un objeto contundente al carro...Estaba mi hijo en la parte de atrás, los nervios que tenía mi hijo...Una persona que es capaz de hacer eso es un asesino en potencia”., dijo la comunicadora a un reportero de la emisión estelar del noticiario del canal 5, cuando sucedió el hecho.


          Deutsche U21 Europameister   
Die deutsche U21-Auswahl ist zum zweiten Mal Fußball-Europameister. Die Mannschaft von Trainer Stefan Kuntz setzte sich am Freitag im Finale in Krakau mit 1:0 (1:0) gegen Spanien durch.Krakau. Deutschlands U21 hat ihr eigenes Fußball-Märchen geschrieben und sich wie die goldene Generation vor acht Jahren zum Europameister gekrönt. In einem mitreißenden und temporeichen Finale trumpfte die DFB-Auswahl am Freitagabend in Krakau gegen den haushohen Favoriten Spanien mit ihrer besten Turnierleistung groß beim 1:0 auf. Mitchell Weiser (40. Minute) sorgte mit seinem Kopfballtor vor 14 059 Zuschauern für eine rauschende Titelfeier der deutschen Junioren, die in der nervenaufreibenden Schlussphase zittern mussten.Nach dem Coup der Auswahl um die späteren Weltmeister Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels & Co. im Jahr 2009 jubelte erst zum zweiten Mal eine deutsche Mannschaft als U21-Europameister. Das Ensemble von Trainer Stefan Kuntz gewann dank einer couragierten, zweikampffreudigen und taktisch cleveren Vorstellung im dritten U21-Finale einer DFB-Elf verdient. Der nächste deutsche Titel könnte schon am Sonntag beim Confed-Cup gefeiert werden. Zahlreiche U21-Kräfte wollen in Russland unter Bundestrainer Joachim Löw mit der A-Nationalelf gegen Chile siegen. Meyer an den Pfosten Auf den Tag genau 21 Jahre nach dem EM-Titel der A-Nationalmannschaft mit dem damaligen Stürmer Kuntz legten seine Junioren in Krakau titelhungrig los. Mit ihrem körperbetonten Auftritt überrumpelte die DFB-Auswahl den Favoriten regelrecht, erspielte sich phasenweise Chancen fast im Minutentakt. Weiser (6.), Maximilian Arnold (9.) und Serge Gnabry (16./21.) scheiterten mit ihren Schüssen. Der Kopfball des nur 1,73 großen Max Meyer segelte an den Pfosten (7.).Die Spanier fanden gegen den angekündigten "Tick deutscher Härte" nur schwer ins Spiel. Nach einem bösen Fehlpass von Jeremy Toljan hatte das Kuntz-Team aber Glück, dass Spaniens Kapitän...

          Messi heiratet Jugendliebe   

Der argentinische Fußballstar Lionel Messi wollte am Freitag um Mitternacht seine Freundin Antonela  heiraten.	Archivbild: Francisco Seco/dpa Es ist die Hochzeit des Jahres in Argentinien. Ein Stelldichein der Fußballstars. Lionel Messi heiratet am Freitagabend seine Jugendliebe Antonela Roccuzzo, die Fußball nicht so mag. Er traf sie, als er neun war.Rosario. Der Flughafen "Islas Malvinas" in Rosario hat selten eine so große Star-Dichte gesehen. Reihenweise landen hier Privatflieger, an Bord Fußballgrößen wie Luis Suárez, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fábregas, Samuel Eto'o und Carles Puyol. Ihr Ziel: ein Komplex in einem für seine Drogenkriminalität berüchtigten Viertel mit dem wenig romantischen Namen Casino City Center. Zurück zu den Wurzeln Das Viertel heißt "La Bajada", zu deutsch "der Abstieg". Für Lionel Messi begann hier sein Aufstieg zum fünfmaligen Weltfußballer. Nun kehrt der 30-Jährige dorthin zurück, wo er herkommt, um seine Jugendliebe Antonela Roccuzzo zu heiraten. 460 Polizisten und private Sicherheitsleute sichern den Kasino- und Hotelkomplex, den Ort der Trauungszeremonie und Feier. Messi und seine künftige Frau haben alle Zimmer für die 260 Gäste buchen lassen, auch 20 Friseure und Dutzende Kindermädchen wurden verpflichtet. Die Braut wurde von der katalanischen Modedesignerin Rosa Clará eingekleidet. Wie die Zeitung "La Capital" enthüllte, war ein typisch argentinisches Hochzeitsmenü auf Wunsch Messis geplant: gegrilltes Rinderfilet, Innereien (Kalbsbries) und "Bom Bom"-Würste. Dazu Champagner sowie Chardonnay und Malbec-Weine.Einen Schrecken gab es kurz vor dem Fest: Fahnder durchsuchten das Casino des Hotels wegen des Verdachts auf Geldwäsche. Das hatte aber nichts mit Messi zu tun, der in Spanien wegen Steuervergehen zuletzt viel Ärger hatte und mehrere Millionen Euro nachzahlen musste. Die Hochzeitvorbereitungen verliefen nicht ganz reibungslos - nach fünf Monaten feuerte Messis Vater Jorge die Hochzeitsplaner, es gab Streit um den Ort und den Preis. Cousine seines Kumpels Auch wenn "la pulga" ("der...
          Tony Martin heiß auf Gelb   

Tony Martin (links) von Team Katusha Alpecin zeigte sich bei der Team-Präsentation mit dem ehemaligen deutschen Radrennfahrer Jens Voigt in Düsseldorf bester Laune.

Nur das Wetter spielt mit prognostiziertem Regen nicht mit.Düsseldorf. Für Tony Martin liegt das Gelbe Trikot zum Abholen bereit, und sogar Weltverbandschef Brian Cookson drückt dem Zeitfahr-Weltmeister ein wenig die Daumen. "Ein Heimsieg wäre gut für Deutschland, aber es kann viel passieren", sagte Cookson und freute sich vor dem Auftakt der 104. Tour de France in Düsseldorf über die "Radsport-Renaissance in Deutschland".Ein Spektakel soll es werden, der erste Tour-Start in Deutschland seit 30 Jahren vor einem Millionen-Publikum am Rhein. Für den Höhepunkt soll Martin sorgen, der von den Tour-Organisatoren einen maßgeschneiderten Kurs serviert bekam. 14 Kilometer, eben bis auf zwei Brücken-Überquerungen - Rheinufer, Königsallee und zurück. "Der Kurs liegt mir - Gelb wäre ein Traum", sagte der 32 Jahre alte deutsche Radprofi, der sich zum zweiten Mal nach 2015 das begehrte Trikot holen und sich beim Heimspiel in der Karnevalshochburg in die Herzen der Fans fahren will.Die Vorfreude der deutschen Stars ist jedenfalls riesengroß. John Degenkolb spricht von einer "Gänsehaut-Atmosphäre". Einen Vorgeschmack bekamen die 16 deutschen Tourstarter bereits bei der Teampräsentation, als sie von mehr als 10 000 Zuschauern gefeiert wurden.Am Freitag suchte Martin noch einmal die Ruhe vor dem Sturm, der Kandidat für Gelb absolvierte außerhalb der Stadt ein Training. "Bisher konnte ich etwa 90 Prozent der Zeitfahr-Strecke abfahren, allerdings nur im Verkehr", erklärte Martin, der für seinen wichtigsten Samstag des Jahres zuversichtlich ist: "Ich bin total entspannt." Vor dem ersten Start wird er die 14 Kilometer auf abgesperrtem Kurs mehrmals abfahren.Der viermalige Weltmeister im Kampf gegen die Uhr gehört am Samstag zu den letzten Startern, was ihn wahrscheinlich nicht vor dem prognostizierten Regen...

          Christmas Presents (HAPPY NEW YEAR)   


Happy new year to all and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! It’s crazy how we all anticipate to Christmas and New Years Eve and they’re both over so quickly, - I enjoyed the festive period while it lasted and it was lovely to spend time with my family and friends as I don’t get to see them as much as I’d like to because of University. I had a great day with my family, drank lot and ate far too much, - but that’s the whole point in Christmas isn’t it?! I just thought I’d share with you all some of gifts I received over Christmas and the things I bought with my River Island Vouchers. If you have been following my blog over the last few weeks you may have seen my ‘Christmas Wishlist’, well I was a lucky girl and got the mustard coat from Topshop for Christmas (thanks to my lovely mum). I love this coat so much, the colour, the style, everything! I will post a picture up soon on how I like to style this item! I also got some River Island vouchers from my Auntie and my older brother so I couldn’t wait to spend these, especially because I haven’t bought anything for myself in soooo long! Fortunately I was in London for a few days with my boyfriend so I was able to take a quick visit to RI on Oxford Street.   I must say I was so impressed with the River Island sale, if you haven’t already checked it out please do it is awesome! I’ve had my eye on the blue checked trousers and the blue patterned jumper for a while so I was so happy when I discovered it had gone in the sale. I’ve made a promise to myself to wear/buy fewer wedges (heels) and try to go for a more elegant strappy style of heel, luckily these were also in the sale and size 5 was the last one in store so it was obviously meant to be! Lastly, I bought this red floral sequin embellish jacket down to £25 from £80!! << What a BARGAIN!
Topshop £85

River Island £15

I will post some pictures of how I have styled each of these items in due time! So stay tuned!

          Hoy dejo de estar premiado como Microsoft MVP: Adiós MVPs. Hola Comunidades Técnicas. It´s been Great!   
Ayer fue mi último día con el galardón de Most Valuable Professional que otorga Microsoft a profesionales técnicos que comparten su trabajo en las comunidades. Gente que invierte su tiempo en mantener un foro, un blog, que participa en grupos de debate de Facebook o que participa reuniones alrededor de unas cervezas para charlar de bots, de BigData, de seguridad informática, hacking o programación en cualquier lenguaje.

Figura 1: Adiós MVPs. Hola Comunidades Técnicas.

En mi caso han sido un porrón de años. En concreto desde el 1 de Julio del año 2004 al 30 de Junio de 2017. Pero es lo que sucede cuando te haces mayor, que todo se mide en una buena cantidad de años. Años que pasan volando mientras disfrutas con la tecnología, las cosas que haces, y las cosas que vives. Estar premiado como MVP por Microsoft nunca me supuso ninguna restricción para hacer o decir lo que quisiera sobre las tecnologías de la compañía, y de hecho he sido muy crítico o muy fan dependiendo de qué cosas. En esta charla contaba algunas de las anécdotas de más de una década como MVP.


Figura 2: Una década como MVP de Seguridad es una Barbaridad

Ahora se acabó mi tiempo como MVP, porque ya no me da la vida para seguir con el ritmo de eventos, artículos, participación en comunidades, que he llevado años atrás, y hay que valorar y dejar paso a los jóvenes MVP que hoy son premiados con este galardón. Aún recuerdo como fue el primer día, que lo refleja perfectamente este vídeo. Ser MVP te hace sentir genial...


Figura 3: I'm an Microsoft MVP and I feel Great!

Para mí fue una experiencia genial, rodeado de gente maravillosa con la que aprendí y de la que me enamoré. Gente con pasión por lo que hace, por la tecnología, por mejorar todo un poco más, por ayudar al que quiere aprender, por compartir conocimiento y experiencias. Gente con la que me reí y con la que, principalmente viví. Luis Franco, un MVP que siempre estuvo ahí conmigo.

Hoy en día, el número de comunidades tecnológicas con que contamos es enorme. Goza de buena salud ver las comunidades de desarrolladores, de hacking o de Big Data, por citar algunas. Todas las semanas hay un montón de reuniones, publicaciones de artículos, estudios, conferencias, etcétera. Se ha creado una masa crítica de amantes de la tecnología que ayuda a que cada vez la tecnología avance más deprisa. Pero hace años no era así. Hay que agradecer a las herramientas de comunicación que tenemos que nos ayudan a generar estos grupos de interés sobre determinados temas, que nos van llevando un poco más allá en el camino del conocimiento.

Figura 5: Los MVPs del Calendario Tórrido del 2009. Yo soy uno de ellos (SIN GORRO), a otro le tocó la lotería del navidad, alguno está en Microsoft ahora, y otros... iban mucho y muy poco al gimnasio, pero todos son geniales.

Con los MVPs, hace muchos años, hacíamos lo que podíamos. Compartíamos y nos apuntábamos a todo. Hasta a desnudarse en un Calendario Tórrido para sacar fondos para causas sociales. Y siempre con la diversión. Aquí, dando una charla de técnicas de inyección en aplicaciones web disfrazados de los 4 Fantásticos. El malo, lógicamente, era el Doctor Doom (el que doctor que pone las inyecciones que era malo, malísimo).

Figura 6: Con otro MVP, Ricardo Varela, dando una charla sobre hacking Web.
Al loro el cinturón de Batman. Tope Cool el cross-over!

Para mí, pertenecer a la comunidad de los MVPs fue genial. Colaboré con muchos, aprendí de otros, socialicé, di charlas, me vi vídeos, llegué a vivir con alguno de ellos, y siempre, siempre, siempre, disfruté de una buena charla sobre tecnología o de un proyecto conjunto. Incluso en el lanzamiento de AURA trabajé con dos MVPs de solera.

A post shared by Chema Alonso (@chemaalonso) on

Hoy digo adiós al programa de MVPs, pero ni mucho a las comunidades técnicas, donde seguiré aportando mi granito de arena en lo que pueda. Con mi blog, con mis charlas puntuales, con algún libro, con algún artículo en alguna revista, o con una reunión en una bolera con jóvenes universitarios de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid que se queden sin foto por no llevar gorro ;).

Saludos Malignos!

PD: Quiero dar las gracias a Alberto Amescua y Cristina González, que me cuidaron durante todos estos años en el grupo de MVPs, y a todos y cada uno de los que habéis sido, sois o seréis MVPs en cualquier rincón del mundo. Tenéis todo mi respeto, cariño y admiración.

          Wordpress change permalinks to Postname cause Page Not Found   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/sathya/archive/2017/06/16/wordpress-change-permalinks-to-postname-cause-page-not-found.aspx

When you select postname in permalinks of wordpress admin page, it might not work sometimes.
Following are the reasons.

* If in the admin permalinks page itself if it shows some message saying "if you have given permissions to .htaccess we could have done this ourselves". Do the following

1. Go to wordpress installation folder in ftp or if you are connected to your ssh, navigate to the folder
2. Ensure that you that you have permissions 644 for .htaccess file and wp-config.php file  (If you use filezilla, you can rightclick on the file and ensure that these are checked : 
Owner Permissions : Read and Write
Group Permissions : Read 
Public Permissions : Read)
3. Also ensure that 755 permission is given for all the subfolders under your installation directory
4. Go to admin - permalinks page again, choose postname option and save it, the * message mentioned above should go away
5. if you still see * message as mentioned above, try to set the permissions for .htaccess file as 777 and do step 4 again.
6. now you should not see the * message anymore if you have done step 5

7. try to navigate to the post you have created 
8. if it works, go to filezilla and change the permissions back to 644 and everything should still work fine.
9. if it still doesn't work and if it says 404 page not found, do the following.
10. ssh to the server
12. vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf (might be httpd.conf in some cases)
13. find the word Directory
14. You can see a couple of Directory sections like that (ex: <Directory /usr/asdf>...</Directory>.
15. Insert an additional section next to what you have like below. (ensure that you mention your complete wordpress installtion path. The path given below is just an example. for the given path, AllowOverride is what matters. So ensure that AllowOverride is set to All for the folder that you mention under the Directory tag.

<Directory /var/www/myfolder/htdocs/wpinstallationfolder/>

        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

        AllowOverride All

        Require all granted

</Directory>

16. Restart your apache server.
In my case its service apache2 restart
it can also be service httpd restart
17. Refresh your sample blog that you have created or create a new blog post from the admin page and try navigating to it, it should all work fine.


If it still doesnt work, it means your module rewrite may not be enabled.
Ensure that this line is uncommented (remove the # in front of the following line) in the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf (or) httpd.conf

LoadModule rewrite_module modules / mod_rewrite.so

Ensure to restart the apache server and refresh the page and try again.

Ensure to do step 8 finally, if you have not done it already.

INTO THE WOODS (09.09.10)
Ultima passeggiata nel bosco, stavolta dall'ultimissima fila. Senza lamentarci perche' a) si vede benissimo anzi meglio che dalla seconda fila, e b) non piove a dirotto.
Tutti bravi, tutti belli. (tranne la Dalli che e' pessima e dovrebbe tornare in Australia al piu' presto possibile..)
Salutiamo finalmente Hannah che ci spupazza un po', ci dice sempre troppo della sua vita privata (le ho chiesto come stava il fidanzato, mi ha risposto che si sono lasciati e il perche' e il per come e di chi era la colpa e delle magagne sotterranee del loro rapporto. Really? REALLY?! Non poteva solo dire 'bene, grazie', come tutte le persone normali? Tanto mica e' amico mio, e non l'avrei certo letto su OK Magazine, perche' mi ha dovuto imbastire sto ambaradan?), racconta delle lusinghe del Maestro Sondheim (che pare le abbia detto 'Sei perfetta, non cambiare niente della tua Strega'..) e sfolgora di bellezza e dorkaggine allo stesso tempo. Bless.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (10.09.10)
Andiamo tutti a vedere questa simil panto giusto per dire 'io c'ero'.
Piattaforma del fu Eurostar a Waterloo trasformata nella sperduta campagna inglese. La ricca famigliola che sembra uscita da Mary Poppins cade in disgrazia causa capofamiglia accusato di spionaggio (come no, a chi non capita?), e si trasferisce momentaneamente in culandia per risparimare qualche soldo (ma con la governante, perche' non sia mai che la signora Banks o whatshername si tiri su le maniche e actually lavi o cucini..poveri si, ma con dignita', eccheddiamine!) e i tre ragazzini si accozzano alla locale stazione ferroviaria, scassando la minchia a destra e a manca e combinando casini a mazzi.
Il gran clamore suscitato dall' ZOMG C'E' UNA VERA LOCOMOTIVA IN SCENA e' abbastanza ingiustificato quando sei nel mezzo di una platform a Waterloo, in verita'..
Fa piu' impressione quando il treno immaginario arriva di corsa senza rallentare e l'illusione viene creata con un semplice audio assordante e un carrello spargifumo che corre lungo la piattaforma. Il treno non esiste, ma per te e' passata una locomotiva enorme di gran carriera e giureresti di averla vista davvero.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (Matinee, 17.09.10)
Prima tappa nella ridente Bolton (se fa' pe' di'..) per vedere Boo.
Madoh.
Che botta allo stomaco a digiuno. Suckerpunch dritto al plesso solare. Che brutta roba. Cioe' splendido, ma terribile.
A rendere tutto ancora piu' difficile c'e' il fatto che Boo e' di una bellezza sconvolgente, non l'ho mai vista piu' bella...e Kieran fa Stanley quasi umano, quasi lo capisci, quasi gli vuoi bene..ed e' so fucking WRONG poi vedergli fare quello che fa e dover sopportare la scena dello stupro (quasi under played, a dir la verita', poteva andare peggio..)
E poi Blanche da di matto e viene portata via, e Clare ha il suo giacchino "blu Della Robbia" e i capelli sciolti in una marea di onde e riccioli ginger e va via con la sua solita grazia innata e il suo passo lieve.
E a me si spezza il cuore in duemila pezzetti.
La faccia che fa quando ci vede e gli abbracci e le strizzate che ci da valgono sempre la pena.
I genitori di Kieran erano molto impressed dal fatto stesso che fossimo venute apposta a vedere lo show. Psh, roba di ordinaria amministrazione per noi.
Ma poi anche sti cazzi dello show, diciamocelo. Io sono venuta per farmi stritolare dalla mia bellissima Boo, e basta. E se il prezzo da pagare e' rimanere incastrata a parlare per dieci minuti con Kieran delle differenze tra questa produzione e quella della Donmar, che ben venga.
E mentre stiamo li' che chiacchieriamo, e ci facciamo i cazzi suoi e lei si fa i nostri, e le dico di mangiare perche' e' sempre magra (ma non come prima, sta meglio ora..) e le tiro su il bavero della giacca perche' tira un vento disumano, la Moglie le butta li' che stiamo aspettando di sapere se l'hanno promossa a manager e se le danno il suo own negozio.
Boo si spertica in scongiuri e macumbe e incrocia l'incrociabile, ci salutiamo ventimila volte parlandoci sopra l'un l'altra come ogni volta. Facciamo in tempo ad arrivare al Costa che la Moglie riceve l'agognata news e viene ufficialmente promossa.
Va senza dire che siamo tornate al teatro ad intercettare Boo al ritorno dalla pausa pranzo per dirglielo. Ah, com'e' ciccia. Non c'e' nessuno ciccio come lei. Era cosi' contenta..
Un altro paio di strizzatine e abbraccioni e via alla volta di Londra, con quel magone dolceamaro post-visita che ci attanaglia quando l'adrenalina smette di pompare in corpo e sei solo tu su un treno Manchester-Londra a piangere nel cappuccino come se avessi detto addio al piu' grande amore della mia vita. (ma moltiplicatelo per due, perche' siamo due deficenti che si innamorano perdutamente della stessa persona)
          Ricominciamo.   
Sono cosi' indietro che manco mi ricordo piu' cosa ho visto e quando, meno male che sono anal retentive e scrivo tutto..

Comunque poco e niente da ricordare, i mesi estivi sono una barba totale e, stranamente, st'anno sono riuscita anche ad andare in vacanza, quindi ho avuto ancora meno tempo/voglia di precipitarmi in teatri afosi.

Afosi pe' modo de di', chiaramente, qui ad Agosto faceva gia' 10 gradi, ditemi voi che cazzo di estate e' questa..Stupid, stupid England *stabs England*

AS YOU LIKE IT (14/07/10)
THE TEMPEST(19/07/10)
Doppietta del Bridge Project all'Old Vic, stesso cast, due differenti opere Shakespeariane. Set minimalista e abiti moderni. Attori un tantinello seganervi.
Diciamo solo che all'intervallo di As You Like It me la sono proprio data a gambe. Il tizio che sostitui' Tennant in Hamlet l'anno scorso era il cattivone e non era abbastanza on stage.
The Tempest invece me lo sono proprio goduto, belli e semplici gli effettoni speciali, come il ring di sabbia in mezzo al palco d cui sbuca il terribile figlio di Sycorax..
Not!Tennant stavolta piu' prominente (fa il principe nemico che si innamora di Miranda) e Prospero fa-vo-lo-so.
Lovvo.

SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE (23/07/10)
Revue di canzoni famose di Leiber and Stoller ('95 Tony per Best Musical. AHAHAHA..no.) al piccolo Landor piccino piccio'.
A parte due o tre sorprese musicali (Neighborhood era nella colonna sonora di Ally McBeal che, dio benedica Vonda Shepard, so a memoria; I'm a Woman, che Hannah fa spesso; la sempre lovvosa Stand By Me) le vere sorprese sono state nel cast.
Baruwa e' sempre un figo della madonna con una voce della madonna (io e la moglie would go straight per Baruwa, e ho detto tutto).
Lo scarto delle Dorothy Steph ha l'eta' apparente, e' alta, ed e' vestita piu' o meno come la sorellina di Seaweed in Hairspray, risultando in alcuni a dir poco imbrazzanti duetti amorosi con Baruwa. Disturbing.
Pippa Stefani sara' sempre una cafona, ma e' una gnocca disumana. No really, esuda sex appeal ad ogni passo, e' un fascio di muscoli e ha un rack di tutto rispetto. , Mi costa ammetterlo ma e' davvero brava, sia nel recitato che nel cantato.
Avevamo seduta vicino Melanie LaBarrie che, squartandosi dalle risate, prendeva appunti in quanto prossima aggiunta al cast.

FEMME FATALE (10/08/10)
Monica e' in un piccolo show al Gatehouse, quindi la si va a vedere.
Autore israeliano seziona grandi donne del passato, sciagurate e complesse, con una score micidiale e divertente e un cast di giovani talenti. Brave tutte, e c'era anche la Signora Rappresentativa della Lauderdale House, che mi ha fatto fare un doppio carpiato all'indietro dal ridere (incolpo Marky, I can't unsee now XD).
Autore israeliano ma lyrics in inglese, sorprendentemente interessanti. Ogni tanto ancora ne canticchio un paio. Bravi bravi bravi.

Poi piccola parentesi Svedese, dove io e la Valex e Nighty ce ne siamo andati in quel di Goteborg a vedere Jenny Berggren(di Ace of Base-iana memoria) live in concert in una chiesetta su un'isoletta sperduta chiamata Marstrand.
L'unica parola che mi viene per descrivere il tutto e' AWESOME.
Awesome la compagnia, la lingua, il posto, Jenny, suo marito, gli svedesi (e le svedesi XD).
A 13 anni sognavo di incontrare Jenny e cercavo di immaginare quanto awesome potesse essere (la adoravo, idolatra adolescente che non ero altro..).
Ora a 30 anni l'ho incontrata, da pari a pari, e ancora non trovo le parole. E' una bellissima persona, dentro e fuori, e quello che le stanno facendo Jonas e Ulf e' vergognoso. Gli Ace of Base sono morti, e' tempo di andare avanti.
We got her back, e adesso lo sa. And that's enough.



LEGALLY BLONDE (23/08/10)
Appena torno e' tempo di andare a salutare Sheridan. Il mio 23esimo Blonde, yay!
Fa sempre piacere vederla arrivare e le prime parole che ti dice, dopo OMG e' una vita che non vi vedo mi siete mancate e blablabla, e': I've still got your penis pasta. Che io a 'penis' ero gia' WTF?!?, e siamo rimaste un attimo basite. LOL.
Tra l'altro, a causa delle extra matinee per le vacanze scolastiche, il cast era al nono show consecutivo. Se non me l'avessero detto non me ne sarei accorta, erano tutti in formissima e abbiamo visto sia Suzie!Vivianne (finalmente. Vocalmente sbalorditiva, ma c'ha la faccia da chipmunk, non e' credibile come evil preppy), Lucy!Serena (LOVVO) e Jane!Enid (FINALMENTE! Che ogni volta che ci vede ci fa l'interrogazione se abbiamo visto quanti e quali dei suoi duemila ruoli nello show, lol. Also, non e' particolarmente una figa to be honest, ma ogni volta che apre bocca e attacca a parlare con la sua calata scozzese rischio di saltarle addosso. Yummy.)
Shezza ci rivela che pensa di estendere (e il giorno dopo hanno confermato) fino a Gennaio, il che manda a puttane il nostro piano di vedere la sua ultima a Ottobre con gli Scoobies, ma anche YAY perche' there's no such thing as too much Shezza.
Quindi ad Ottobre un sacco di persone rimarranno, tranne la Pandolfi Halfpenny che viene sostituita dalla Van Outen (ZOMG).
Ah, e Sheridan fara' solo 6 show a settimana perche' deve filmare altra roba, quindi due show a settimana li fara' *rullo di tamburi* SUSAN MCFADDEN!
Mini ola celebrativa!

INTO THE WOODS (28/08/10)
Tentiamo di andare all'Open Air il 25, ma piove a dirotto e ci mandano a casa senza nemmeno cominciare, slittandoci a sabato. Alla faccia dell'ondata di caldo e 'Agosto secco' che ci avevano promesso.
Seconda fila e andiamo con i Bad Idea Bears, mica male.
Tutti bravi tutti belli..TRANNE:
-Il Baker. Ottimo piangitore, ma pessimo cantore.
-La Dalli!Cinderella. Mado' che nervi che mi fa venire. Legnosa e unfunny e la voce mi grattugia il sistema nervoso. Bleah.
Il resto tutti schifosamente bravi. Alice!Rapunzel, i due Principi, soprattutto quello che fa il Lupo, la abbondante e ninfomane Little Red, Jack e la sua mucca, JENNA FUCKING RUSSELL immensa as the Baker's Wife, e tutto il cast di contorno, la Matrigna, le Sorellastre, la Mamma di Jack, la voce di Dame Judi!Gigantessa.

          FAMILY WRITERS' WEEKLY FACT FINDINGS AND ANALYSIS   
FAMILY WRITERS' WEEKLY FACT FINDINGS AND ANALYSIS

By Ekwenye Samuel, Sunday Okafor and Paul Emerenini;
For Family Writers Press.

Do you know that South South is more Biafran than you think?  You may not know this and that is why some people keep on contacting us for clarifications up until this day, both on Radio Biafra group page, Emeka Gift's page  and some direct inbox messages. These messages came after one of us wrote a letter to all the Biafran governors titled- "OPEN LETTER TO SOUTH EAST AND SOUTH SOUTH GOVERNORS OF BIAFRA LAND" , which was published on the Biafra Herald website dated 18th of June, 2017. One of the critical questions encountered was:  "who told you that South - South is part of Biafra?". Now listen, to get the facts straight.

As at 1900, the three geographical areas around River Niger,  South East/South geographical area was known as  Biafra. The South_ West geographical area harbouring the Yorubas, was known as Oduduwa  and the Northern geographical area harbouring the Hausas was known as  Arewa. These three had been in existence before they were coined to form what is currently known today as Nigeria by the British colonists through Frederick Lord Lugard and his girl friend, Flora Shaw in 1914.
Before Nigeria was amalgamated, Biafra was already in existence, but because nobody knew what was going to happen in subsequent years to come, our fathers as at then, could not hesitate to raise a disagreement motion when the British colonial masters came to amalgamate the protectorates between 1912-1914.

Having seen the intelligence and the natural blessings of  Biafrans,  the British government brought up a  demarcation between the South East  and the South South. If you go through the old world map containing Biafra before Nigeria was amalgamated, you will find out that South-South was located in Biafra  until a new map was drawn and Biafra was erased completely. Then why must some people at this new era without any knowledge of history at all come up and open their mouths to proclaim that they are not  Biafrans?

All the States located in the so called South-South were Biafran States before the fraudulent amalgamation. People like Gen. Philip Effiong who hailed from  Akwa-Ibom  fought for Biafra with all his strength, passion and love for the motherland during the 1967 to 1970 civil war against Nigeria. Effiong defended the national boundaries of Biafra alongside other people from the Niger Delta axis. They knew why they fought for and defended Biafra, because they were Biafrans and not Nigerians. Do you think that we know  more than they knew then?  Not at all, because it is quite glaring that the British imperialists only came to divide, conquer and rule over Biafrans.

Also, another question that should be posed to the doubting Thomases in the Niger Delta is; What prompted the elders from Bayelsa State in the Niger Delta to pay a solidarity visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at his father's residence in Afaraukwu?  And why were gifts of a glittering sword and a lantern given to him?

The visit simply means that they  are not left out of this struggle for freedom of all of us as Biafrans. Among these elders were those who witnessed the Nigeria - Biafra civil war and who must have been told by their parents  how  the coming of the British colonists  forcefully colonized Nigeria, thereby amalgamating  three different groups of people with different ideology,  mentality,  socio cultural beliefs, as well as different languages to coexist as  one concocted entity. The  bold step which the elders took was to correct all the anomalies infiltrated by those who  think that Biafra is for the Igbos alone, by showing the whole world that they are not Nigerians rather, Biafrans.

The sword and the lantern  given to Nnamdi Kanu is highly significant. It is a very vital proof that the Igbos,  Ijaws, Itsekiris, Idomas and others within the Eastern region have the same ideology and cultural beliefs.

Sword and lantern when given to somebody generally signify the following in Biafra Land:
1. Lantern when given to a person could mean to lighten the person's paths. How do we mean?  The people of the east and south of Biafra have been in total darkness over the years without any or little knowledge of our existence. During the time of Ojukwu in 1967, they fought for Biafra, because Biafrans were  tormented and killed in the northern Nigeria almost on daily basis. So they fought for Biafra freedom not  because we were not Nigerians but because of the evils Biafrans were subjected to in Nigeria. Therefore, they believed that the only possible way to stop such an inhuman act was to  declare  Biafra as an independent nation.  Unknown to many people then, we were quite too different from the other ethnic groups which made up Nigeria and our  heroes left it without clarifications.
During the time of Uwazurike from 1999, many people were yet again left without proper sensitization and knowledge about our existing as Nigerians and our origin. But from 2012 when Nnamdi Kanu took over the mantle of Biafra leadership, quite a lot of people were sensitised, educated with the knowledge of history concerning the root of Biafrans. With the lantern illuminating every Biafran territory, the gospel of Biafra will spread like a flame of fire to every doubting Thomas.

2. The Sword. The sword means to fight spiritually without any intimidation or fear against the enemies, both internal and external oppressors.
THE INTERNAL ENEMIES : These are the ones within the territory of the nation which can either be an individual, or  a group of people such as the governors in Biafra land,  the senators in Biafra land, the ministers of Biafra origin, and so many  others to mention but a few. They are regarded as enemies because they do not  want Biafra to be restored due to  their selfish and personal interests  from the Nigerian government, thereby selling their people to a fake entity (Nigeria) as slaves.

THE EXTERNAL ENEMIES.  These are the ones who are not of Biafran origin, and are fighting against her restoration. They can  as well be classified as both individuals like the northern Hausa-Arewas and the Western yoruba Oduduwas, countries like Nigeria, Britain, Saudi Arabia and some other countries of the world.

Even Nnamdi Kanu said it in one of his speeches at his father's residence in Afaraukwu Abia State  that all  the South South areas are naturally Biafra entities. So, what are you waiting for? It is high time you joined the moving train of Biafra restoration for freedom, because that is the only hope we have to survive in this part of the Islamic world.

With this, we end this week's edition of FWFFA. Greetings to you, goodbye.

          Chronicle AM: SD Sued Over Forced Catheterization of Toddler for Drug Test, More... (6/30/17)   

The ACLU sues South Dakota over the forced drug testing of a toddler, Detroit residents again sue the dope squad for killing dogs in pot raids, Pennsylvania's governor signs an asset forfeiture reform bill, and more.

[image:1 align:left caption:true]Marijuana Policy

EPA Rejects California's Request to Recognize Allowable Marijuana Pesticides. Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt last week rejected the state's request to recognize acceptable pesticides for pot crops. Pruitt used the fact of marijuana's continuing illegality under federal law to justify the decision: "Under federal law, cultivation (along with sale and use) of cannabis is generally unlawful as a schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act. The EPA finds that the general illegality of cannabis cultivation makes pesticide use on cannabis a fundamentally different use pattern."

Medical Marijuana

Pennsylvania Health Department Issues Dispensary Permits. The Health Department announced Thursday it had granted 27 medical marijuana dispensary permits. Each permit holder can open up to three dispensaries. They will be permitted to begin selling medical marijuana in six months. Click on the link for a list of permit recipients.

Asset Forfeiture

Pennsylvania Governor Signs Asset Forfeiture Reform Bill. Gov. Tom Wolf (D) signed into law Senate Bill 8 on Thursday. The bill does not end civil asset forfeiture, but does impose a higher burden of proof on law enforcement before forfeitures can take place, mandate a hearing before any seized real property is forfeited, and add protections for third-party property owners.

Drug Testing

South Dakota Sued Over Forced Catherization of 3-Year-Old for Drug Test. The ACLU of South Dakota has filed a pair of lawsuits over the forced use of a catheter to take a urine sample from a three-year-boy to test for drugs as part of a child welfare investigation. The suit comes in the case of a Pierre woman whose boyfriend violated probation by testing positive for illegal drugs. Child protective workers then told the women her children would be taken away if she did not submit them to a drug test. The federal lawsuit names as defendants the state of South Dakota and the hospital whose employees actually performed the procedure.

Law Enforcement

Detroit's Dog Killing Drug Cops Sued for Third Time. A Detroit couple has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Detroit Police alleging officers needlessly and maliciously killed their three dogs during a July 2016 marijuana raid after officers refused to let them retrieve the animals from the back yard. That brings to three the number of active lawsuits filed against Detroit cops for killing dogs during pot raids. The culprit is the department's Major Violators Unit, which conducts hundreds of raids a year in the city, and which has left a trail of dead dogs in its wake. One officer alone has killed 69 dogs.

Illinois Supreme Court Rules County DAs Can't Form Their Own Dope Squads. The state Supreme Court ruled Thursday the county prosecutors cannot form their own policing units to conduct drug interdiction efforts, including traffic stops. The ruling came in a case involving the State Attorney's Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Unit created by the LaSalle County district attorney. The unit operated for five years, mainly stopping cars on their way to and from Chicago. Previously, state appeals courts had ruled that the units were an overreach of prosecutorial authority, and now the state's highest court has backed them up.

          The Role of Chest Computed Tomography in the Evaluation and Management of the Patient with COPD.   

The Role of Chest Computed Tomography in the Evaluation and Management of the Patient with COPD.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med. 2017 Jun 29;:

Authors: Labaki WW, Martinez CH, Martinez FJ, Galbán CJ, Ross BD, Washko GR, Barr RG, Regan EA, Coxson HO, Hoffman EA, Newell JD, Curran-Everett D, Hogg JC, Crapo JD, Lynch DA, Kazerooni EA, Han MK

Abstract
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exhibits significant heterogeneity in clinical presentation and rate of disease progression, owing at least in part to differing underlying morphologic abnormalities. Symptom assessment and spirometry have traditionally been used to determine disease severity and guide management. However, chest computed tomography (CT) is a widely available and increasingly used imaging modality that can provide additional insight into structural and pathophysiologic pulmonary parameters. While chest CT is not currently recommended as part of the routine evaluation for COPD beyond aiding with advanced therapy decision making in severe disease, the expanding use of CT now demands that clinicians understand how to treat relevant information that becomes available. Emphysema, airway disease, air trapping and pulmonary vascular abnormalities have all been associated with a number of important outcomes, including respiratory symptoms, COPD exacerbations and mortality. CT can also provide information on important comorbidities such as coronary artery disease and osteoporosis that have been recognized as essential components of COPD care. While visual assessment of these parameters is already currently routine in chest CT interpretation, quantification methods are becoming more reliable and increasingly accessible to the everyday clinician. In this article, we review the most readily available CT assessment methods and their clinical implications as well as highlight the value of assessing non-pulmonary structures (coronary arteries and vertebral bone). Chest CT clearly has the potential to become a powerful tool in the quest to personalize medicine, but its value will ultimately depend on our ability to extract clinically important information that changes management.

          Germany legalizes same-sex marriage after Merkel u-turn   
BERLIN — German lawmakers voted Friday to legalize same-sex marriage after a short but emotional debate, bringing the country in line with many of its Western peers. Though Chancellor Angela Merkel voted against the measure, she paved the way for its passage by freeing other members of her party to vote their "conscience."

Lawmakers voted 393 for legalizing "marriage for everybody" and 226 against, with four abstentions.

Merkel said Monday that lawmakers could take up the issue as a "question of conscience," allowing members of her conservative coalition, which has been against same-sex marriage, to individually vote for it.

That prompted her center-left rivals to quickly call for a snap vote on the issue, adding it to the agenda Friday on parliament's last regular session before Sept. 24 elections.

While some in Merkel's conservative bloc spoke against the measure, Berlin Christian Democrat Jan-Marco Luczak urged his fellow party members to vote for same-sex marriage.

"It would be absurd to try and protect marriage by preventing people to marry," he told lawmakers.

Many applauded Merkel's comments that opened the way for the vote, but Social Democrat lawmaker Johannes Kahrs noted in the debate that the chancellor had been a longtime opponent of gay marriage.

"Many thanks for nothing," he said bluntly.

Germany has allowed same-sex couples to enter civil partnerships since 2001, but has not granted them full marital rights, which include the possibility to jointly adopt children.

The new law won't take effect for several months because it still needs to pass the upper house of Parliament and be approved by the president, though those are formalities. It is also expected to face legal challenges.

Merkel told reporters after the vote that her vote against the measure was based upon her reading of the country's law concerning marriage and that she did think gay couples should be able to adopt.

Germany's basic law is vague, saying only that "marriage and the family shall enjoy the protection of the state," but Merkel said that for her "marriage as defined by the law is the marriage of a man and a woman."

She added, however, that she stood by her contention that the interpretation was a "question of conscience" and urged all views to be respected.

"It was a long, intensive, and for many also emotional discussion, that goes for me personally too, and I'm hopeful not only that there will be respect for either side's opinions, but that it will also bring about more peace and cohesion in society," she said.

All of Merkel's potential coalition partners after the September election, including the center-left Social Democrats of her challenger, Martin Schulz, have been calling for same-sex marriage to be legalized.

It is not clear whether Merkel thought her Monday comments would prompt such a quick vote, but many analysts have suggested that by opening the door to gay marriage the chancellor removed yet another issue that might have helped her opponents in their campaigns against her.

In nearly 12 years as chancellor, Merkel has moved her party to the center and away from conservative orthodoxy, speeding up Germany's exit from nuclear power and ending military conscription among other moves.


          Global cyberattack seems intent on havoc, not extortion   
PARIS – A cyberattack that caused indiscriminate economic damage around the world was apparently designed to create maximum havoc in Russia's neighbor and adversary Ukraine, security researchers said.

While the rogue software used in the attack was configured as extortionate "ransomware," that may have just been a ruse.

"It is clear that this was targeted indiscriminately at Ukrainian businesses, and the Ukrainian government," Jake Williams, president of the security firm Rendition Infosec and a former member of the U.S. National Security Agency's elite cyberwarfare group, said in an online chat. "The 'ransomware' component is just a smokescreen (and a bad one)."

UKRAINE IN PAIN

Although the attack was global in its reach, Ukraine bore the brunt. Computers were disabled at banks, government agencies, energy companies, supermarkets, railways and telecommunications providers. Many of these organizations said they had recovered by Thursday, although some experts suspected that work was incomplete.

"There is still a lot of damage, especially in banks," said Victor Zhora, CEO of the Kiev cybersecurity firm InfoSafe. "ATMS are working (again) but some bank operations are still limited." He estimated damage in "the millions of dollars, perhaps tens of millions."

And that's just in Ukraine. Microsoft said the malware hit at least 64 nations, including Russia, Germany and the United States. "I expect that we will see additional fallout from this is the coming days," said Williams.

In Ukraine, suspicion immediately fell on hackers affiliated with Vladimir Putin's regime, although there is no direct, public evidence tying Russia to the attack. Relations between the two nations have been tense since Moscow annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014. Pro-Russian fighters are still battling the government in eastern Ukraine.

Experts have also blamed pro-Russian hackers for major cyberattacks on the Ukrainian power grid in 2015 and 2016, assaults that have turned the eastern European nation into the world's leading cyberwarfare testing ground. A disruptive attack on the nation's voting system ahead of 2014 national elections is also attributed to Russia.

THE MOSCOW CONNECTION

The malicious program, which is known by a variety of names, including NotPetya, initially appeared to be ransomware. Such malware locks up victims' files by encrypting them, then holds them hostage while demanding payment – usually in bitcoin, the hard-to-trace digital currency.

But researchers said the culprits would have been hard-pressed to make money off the scheme. They appear to have relied on a single email address that was blocked almost immediately and a single bitcoin account that collected the relatively puny sum of $10,000.

Firms including Russia's anti-virus Kaspersky Lab, said clues in the code indicate that the program's authors would have been incapable of decrypting the data, further evidence that the ransom demands were a smoke screen.

The timing was intriguing, too. The attack came the same day as the assassination of a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer and a day before a national holiday celebrating the new Ukrainian constitution signed after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

"Everything being said so far does point to Russia being a leading candidate for a suspect in this attack," said Robert M. Lee, CEO of Dragos Inc. an expert who has studied the attacks on Ukraine's power grid.

What's most worrisome and reprehensible, said Lee, is that whoever was behind the attack was unconcerned about the indiscriminate, collateral damage it caused – much of it within Russia itself. That's highly atypical behavior for nation-states.

ACCOUNTING FOR MALWARE

Williams and other researchers said all evidence indicates that NotPetya was introduced via Ukrainian financial software provider MeDoc. It is one of just two companies in the eastern European nation that supplies required tax software, Zhora said.

Security experts believe MeDoc was the unwitting victim of something akin to a "watering-hole attack," where a malicious program surreptitiously planted at a popular destination infects parties that visit. MeDoc's user base is heavily financial – and includes multinational corporations with offices in Ukraine.

NotPetya was cleverly engineered to spread laterally within Windows networks and across the globe via private network connections. Globally, dozens of major corporations and government agencies have been disrupted, including FedEx subsidiary TNT.

Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk, one of the global companies hit hardest, said Thursday that most of its terminals were running again, though some are operating in a limited way or more slowly than usual.

Problems have been reported across the shippers' global business, from Mobile, Alabama, to Mumbai in India. At Mumbai's Jawaharlal Nehru Port, several hundred containers could be seen piled up at just two of more than a dozen yards.

"The vessels are coming, the ships are coming, but they are not able to take the container because all the systems are down," trading and clearing agent Rajeshree Verma said. "We are actually in a fix because of all this."


          Travel ban takes effect but less chaos expected   
WASHINGTON – A scaled-back version of President Donald Trump's travel ban took effect Thursday evening, stripped of provisions that brought protests and chaos at airports worldwide in January yet still likely to generate a new round of court fights.

The new rules, the product of months of legal wrangling, aren't so much an outright ban as a tightening of already-tough visa policies affecting citizens from six Muslim-majority countries. Refugees are covered, too.

Administration officials promised that implementation this time, which started at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT), would be orderly. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Dan Hetlage said his agency expected "business as usual at our ports of entry," with all valid visa holders still being able to travel.

Still, immigration and refugee advocates are vowing challenge the new requirements and the administration has struggled to explain how they will make the United States safer.

Under the temporary rules, citizens of Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen who already have visas will be allowed into the United States. But people from those countries who want new visas will now have to prove a close family relationship or an existing relationship with an entity like a school or business in the U.S.

It's unclear how significantly the new rules will affect travel. In most of the countries singled out, few people have the means for leisure travel. Those that do already face intensive screenings before being issued visas.

Nevertheless, human rights groups on Thursday girded for new legal battles. The American Civil Liberties Union, one of the groups challenging the ban, called the new criteria "extremely restrictive," ''arbitrary" in their exclusions and designed to "disparage and condemn Muslims."

The state of Hawaii filed an emergency motion Thursday asking a federal judge to clarify that the administration cannot enforce the ban against relatives – such as grandparents, aunts or uncles – not included in the State Department's definition of "bona fide" personal relationships.

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer met with customs officials and said he felt things would go smoothly.

"For tonight, I'm anticipating few issues because, I think, there's better preparation," he told reporters at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday night. "The federal government here, I think, has taken steps to avoid the havoc that occurred the last time."

Much of the confusion in January, when Trump's first ban took effect, resulted from travelers with previously approved visas being kept off flights or barred entry on arrival in the United States. Immigration officials were instructed Thursday not to block anyone with valid travel documents and otherwise eligible to visit the United States.

Karen Tumlin, legal director of the National Immigration Law Center, said the rules "would slam the door shut on so many who have waited for months or years to be reunited with their families.

Trump, who made a tough approach to immigration a cornerstone of his election campaign, issued a ban on travelers from the six countries, plus Iraq, shortly after taking office in January. His order also blocked refugees from any country.

Trump said these were temporary measures needed to prevent terrorism until vetting procedures could be reviewed. Opponents noted that visa and refugee vetting were already strict and said there was no evidence that refugees or citizens of those six countries posed a threat. They saw the ban as part of Trump's campaign promise to bar Muslims from entering the United States.

Lower courts blocked the initial ban and a second, revised Trump order intended to overcome legal hurdles. The Supreme Court on Monday partially reinstated the revised ban but exempted travelers who could prove a "bona fide relationship" with a U.S. person or entity. The court offered only broad guidelines.

In guidance issued late Wednesday, the State Department said the personal relationships would include a parent, spouse, son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already in the United States. It does not include other relationships such as grandparents, grandchildren, aunts and uncles. On Thursday, the State and Homeland Security departments had both expanded the range of bona fide relationships to include fiancés.

Business or professional links must be "formal, documented and formed in the ordinary course rather than for the purpose of evading" the ban. Journalists, students, workers or lecturers who have valid invitations or employment contracts in the U.S. would be exempt from the ban. The exemption does not apply to those who seek a relationship with an American business or educational institution purely for the purpose of avoiding the rules.

Refugees from any country will face similar requirements. But the U.S. has almost filled its quota of 50,000 refugees for the budget year ending in September and the new rules won't apply to the few remaining slots. With the Supreme Court set to consider the overall ban in October, the rules could change again.

The travel ban may have the largest impact on Iranians. In 2015, the most recently available data, nearly 26,000 Iranians were allowed into the United States on visitor or tourist visas. Iranians made up the lion's share of the roughly 65,000 foreigners from the six countries who visited with temporary, or non-immigrant visas that year.

American journalist Paul Gottinger, said he and his Iranian fiancee applied for a visa nearly a year ago but are still waiting on a decision. Gottinger says they were to wed at a Japanese garden in his parents' home state of Minnesota this month but postponed the ceremony until August because they had not yet received the visa.

Now, he expects they will have to delay again.

"Every twist and turn of the courts, we're holding our hearts and our stomachs are falling to the floor," he said by phone from Turkey.

The new regulations are also affecting the wedding plans of Rama Issa-Ibrahim, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.

She is Syrian-American and had planned to get married this fall. While her father in Syria may be able to get a visa, her aunts and uncles may well be blocked.

"I would love for them to be at this wedding, and unfortunately, they aren't going to be able to be here," she said, adding that the ceremony would be postponed.

          DE ... SHOJANDO LA MARGARITA.   
CLINICA DENTAL GALVEZ MOLINA BASKET: 50
CLUB BASKET CARTAGENA: 88


Por fin se deshojó la margarita. La emoción nos acompañó hasta el último día de la competición regular, lo cual no es otra cosa que el indicativo de que todo se ha desarrollado con absoluta normalidad. Así debería ser siempre, pero desgraciadamente es la primera vez que ocurre en muchos años.
Por fin conocemos quién se queda fuera y no es otro que el guerrillero equipo templario de Caravaca. Se dejó la piel en las pistas, venció a los mejores y ha estado ahí hasta el último momento. Es curioso que el sábado a las 10 de la mañana muchos éramos los que pensábamos que tenían muchas posibilidades de ser primeros. Sólo tenían que ganar su partido ante Maristas, al que ya habían ganado con solvencia en el partido de ida (80-61). No era tan difícil, no perder ante quien habías ganado de 19, aunque ya se sabe, esto no es como empieza sino como acaba, y ganar en el feudo de Caravaca nunca es fácil. Allí se dan unos condicionantes especiales que hacen que el equipo se crezca y se sienta "como en casa". De haberlo hecho, Infante habría jugado su partido contra el CB Murcia 96 con la presión de conocer que alguien podría haberle arrebatado la "pole position" y quizás otro gallo habría cantado. En cualquier caso solo nos queda felicitar al equipo caravaqueño por todo lo bueno que ha sido capaz de hacer esta temporada, y seguro que aprenderán de sus errores, que para mí no han sido otros que sus derrotas ante Capuchinos en casa y ante Archena, equipo éste último teóricamente inferior y que ha tenido un extraordinario  final de temporada.
Al margen de estas culpas y cualquier otra cábala, lo cierto y verdad es que el equipo Caravaqueño ha quedado fuera de las semifinales y enviado a tomar... fanta como ellos mismos afirman en su web, pero su rendición ha sido muy cara e indiscutiblemente con la satisfacción del deber cumplido.

Y al hilo de estas primeras reflexiones, dejarme entonar el "mea culpa" por haber pensado mal, tal vez empujado por las habladurías o los chismes de portería. Tenemos todos que hacerlo, todos los que de alguna manera hemos pensado que Infante había puesto su partido el domingo para conocer resultados del resto de los equipos y decidir qué hacer. La verdad es que yo lo he pensado poco, es una culpa pequeñita, como diría el chiste "solo la puntita", pero no han sido pocos los comentarios que me han llegado, algunos de personas muy sabias en este mundo de la competición, en  los que se especulaba con la posibilidad de que Infante podría dejarse perder ante Murcia-96 caso de ganar Caravaca, con el fin de tener un cruce en semifinales más asequible que el cuarto del grupo A. Infante ha ganado su partido con solvencia ante el que pudiera calificarse como el equipo llave de esta competición, ya que todos los que hemos sido capaces de vencerle estamos en semifinales. Por otro lado nos quedamos sin saber qué habría pasado de vencer Caravaca a Maristas.
 Expresar también mi sorpresa ya que yo pensaba que el Murcia-96 tenía posibilidades de estar ahí hasta el final ya que es un equipo fuerte, aunque cuando vino a jugar contra el CBC me dio la impresión de que su staff técnico tiraba el partido con los absurdos cambios que realizaba cuando mejor le iba y los que no hizo cuando peor. El CBC se cuidó muy mucho de vigilar de cerca a Davíd Álvarez encargando su marcaje al que para mí es nuestro jugador más completo, Sergio Muñoz. Indiscutiblemente David es uno de los mejores bases de la región y en el partido de ida lideró la victoria de su equipo haciéndonos cuantos sietes estuvieron en su mano. Y así empezó en el partido de vuelta, pero como digo y tras verse obstaculizado por Sergio en sus primeras aproximaciones, incomprensiblemente ocupó su puesto en el banquillo en la segunda parte y el Basket Cartagena tuvo el terreno expedito hacia la victoria una vez solucionado el problema del cartagenero David.
David Álvarez vs. Sergio Muñoz
En cuanto a las especulaciones que he mencionado y que en este caso afectan a Infante, decir que por un lado la A.D. Infante  no ha hecho otra cosa que poner su partido el día y la hora oficial que tiene fijados desde el principio de la temporada, domingo a las 12, por lo que en ese sentido su honorabilidad está fuera de toda duda.
Si tratamos de buscar un culpable de esta situación un tanto anómala, pues como no podría ser de otra forma habría que dirigir las miradas a la Federación ya que somos muchos los que pensamos que tal y como ocurre en otras categorías, los partidos de la última jornada deberían jugarse obligatoriamente el mismo día y a la misma hora, evitando así que en los corrillos se hable mal de quien realmente no merece esos comentarios. Una vez más y no quisiera hacerme muy pesado en esto aunque a veces pienso que lo soy, dirijo mi mirada censora hacia ...

Hablábamos en la anterior entrada -sin duda una de las más populares de este blog y con mayor participación, ya que se han superado las 1000 visitas y los 40 comentarios, lo cual agradezco enormemente- de las oratorias al cielo que unos y otros haríamos durante la semana que ha terminado, ese mismo cielo donde algunos podrían "tener mano". Pues efectivamente, parece que esto de estar a bien con la iglesia da resultado, ya que la victoria de los Hermanos Maristas ante Caravaca y la propia de los Hermanos Capuchinos ha permitido la clasificación para semifinales de estos últimos, aunque sinceramente yo habría preferido que mi equipo fuera sexto que quinto, al tratarse de una clasificación virtual ya que te obliga a cruzarte con el equipo invitado estelar. Enhorabuena en cualquier caso a mis amigos de Capuchinos, y decir que al margen de  ser el equipo que se come el marrón, si alguno de los equipos que han jugado en este Grupo A de la competición Junior Masculino puede plantarle cara al UCAM Murcia 95, ese no es otro que Capuchinos, que siempre tiene ese plus de motivación cuando se enfrenta a su histórico principal esquilmador.


Ya para terminar, y antes de entrar en el breve comentario del partido que nos ha enfrentado a Molina Basket, dejar constancia de que nadie, ninguno de los equipos con posibilidades de ocupar una plaza en la final a 4 de la categoría, tiene la más mínima ilusión por hacerlo. Es algo así como cuando en otras épocas se jugaba la copa del Generalísimo, en la que todo estaba dispuesto para que en su presencia y en el escenario más propicio el Real Madrid se hiciera con el título año tras año. Ayer comentaba con algunos compañeros de viaje en esto de seguir a nuestros equipos, que para mí será justo vencedor de la categoría el equipo que logre llegar a la final, incluso antes de jugarla, todo ello sin quitarle el mérito y el respeto que merece el CB Murcia 95, ya que creo que está en otro nivel totalmente distinto al jugado en esta categoría junior, por lo que de nada le va a servir esta final a 4.

Precisamente ayer me acerqué al Pabellón de Los Dolores a verlos jugar en categoría autonómica frente a E.B. Salesianos, partido que vencieron sin despeinarse (64-112), liderando la tabla junto a MARME, por lo que podría ser un excelente candidato a llevarse el título  de esta categoría en lugar de la junior, si es que se trata de que se lleven un título, insistiendo en que nadie duda que es el equipo que debe ir a representar  a nuestra región en el campeonato de España de Clubes, jugara o no la final a 4 junior.


En cuanto al partido frente a Molina Basket decir que solo durante el primer cuarto el equipo Molinense pareció plantar cara al ya semifinalista Basket Cartagena, finalizando el cuarto con una ventaja de tan solo 3 puntos para el equipo visitante.


Pero al comienzo del segundo cuarto el CBC comenzó a asegurar y seleccionar mejor el tiro a canasta haciéndose definitivamente fuerte en defensa, por lo que el equipo molinense comenzó a desinflarse paulatinamente hasta el final del encuentro, al que a pesar del resultado no perdieron ni la cara ni el respeto, de agradecer tratándose de un equipo que no se jugaba absolutamente nada en su último partido de la temporada. Al descanso el resultado fue de 28-40.

Ya en la segunda parte las distancias en el marcador se fueron haciendo inalcanzables para los locales, encontrándose el equipo cartagenero muy cómodo en el partido, donde todos los jugadores del CBC tuvieron su protagonismo, incluídos Javi Sánchez e Iván Suárez, jugadores cadetes que debutaban en categoría junior y que tuvieron una actuación más que notable.

Fotografías del partido de Antonio Céspedes

Y la próxima semana comienzan las semifinales. Como cuarto clasificado el Basket Cartagena se enfrentará al campeón de la fase regular, el A.D. Infante. Os deseamos mucha suerte a todos y a seguir con la diversión dos semanas más.

Ya para terminar incluyo un comentario aportado por Ricard en la última entrada del blog, donde desgrana algunas "curiosidades" que se han producido en este final de competición:

Curiosidades de la clasificación FINAL:
-Cartagena hubiera quedado 4º, aunque hubiera perdido su partido.

-2º Maristas y 3º Yecla se enfrentarán a los lideres del Grupo BC : Lorca 96 y Pulso2 ...
...partidos (ojo : sólo a priori) mas fáciles que 1º Infante vs. 4ºCartagena.

-5º Capuchinos recibe el premio inesperado CBMurcia-95, que el sentido común dicta que se debía enfrentar a uno de los líderes BC

-Lo nunca visto : del grupo "Especial" realmente sólo pasan 4 (en otras categorias son 6) equipos, ya que uno de ellos ya está virtualmente eliminado (vs. CBMurcia-95), y no podrá jugar la "Final a 4".


Como continuación a las Curiosidades de la clasificación FINAL:

La injusticia de la competición Junior hace que el CBMurcia "A" ,juegue los cuartos de final de una liga en la que NO participa ,claro esto es MURCIA (Autonomia cuasi-bananera) donde los que mandan...en todos los estamentos tienen claro que las cosas se hacen Si o SI por sus "Mojones".
Me imagino lo que pensarían Estudiantes o Vitoria ...si el Barça o el RMadrid SOLO jugaran la liga de campeones y estuvieran clasificados "de facto" y sin jugar ningún partido para los play-off de la LIGA.

Por otra parte ,que el CBMurcia "A" ,además de no participar en la liga...elimine al 5º del Grupo A (especial)...es de juzgado de guardia .
En Capuchinos tienen que estar contentisimos de no haber jugado en la liga "B" ,donde seguro que hubieran conseguido un cruce mucho mas asequible...Maristas o Yecla (a ambos le ganaron uno de los dos partidos en la liga).

En fin "El sentido común" parece (en el caso de los encargados de hacer el calendario de competiciones) ...El menos común de los sentidos.


¡¡¡Qué razón tiene nuestro amigo Ricard!!!


          Crítica | Okja   

Antimadurez

Crítica ★★★★ de Okja (Bong Joon-ho, Corea del Sur, 2017).

Mija, la niña de diez años que protagoniza Okja, es probablemente el carácter heroico más intachable al que ha dado cabida el cine de Bong Joon-ho. Una excepción dentro de la tendencia de un director que nos ha acostumbrado a personajes más bien antiheroicos, que suelen combinar ambigüedad en sus motivaciones con una torpeza notoria para ejecutarlas. Pensemos, por ejemplo, en la relación maternofilial tan viciada que impulsa a la protagonista de Mother, o en la amoralidad y la inutilidad manifiesta de los protagonistas de Memories of Murder y The Host. Frente a ellos, la pequeña Mija (Ahn Seo-hyeon) es un personaje transparente respecto al motivo que impulsa sus acciones, y capaz de avanzar con decisión y sin vacilaciones. Aparte de la carga de ironía que hay en que el personaje de Bong con más fuerza interior sea el más indefenso a primera vista, lo relevante del detalle hay que buscarlo en el impulso concreto que mueve a la niña a iniciar su peripecia para rescatar a su amiga Okja, esa cerda gigante que desde ya tiene un lugar especial guardado en la categoría de criaturas adorables de la historia del cine. A priori, la decisión de Mija de dejar su granja en Corea y lanzarse a la aventura tras Okja nos puede remitir a la retórica del coming of age. La historia de la muchacha que abandona su zona de confort y se enfrenta a un mundo caótico, infinito y a menudo injusto en el que buscar su propio lugar. Así lo parecen indicar las oposiciones espaciales que va disponiendo Bong entre lo rural y lo urbano, significantes respectivos de lo idílico y lo cínico. El primer plano en el que aparece la ciudad de Seúl es una amplia vista cenital de las escaleras del metro en el que la figura de Mija casi se ve engullida por el hormigueo de viajeros. La media hora anterior, por el contrario, nos ha dejado ir habitando el verdor y la paz de su vida en las montañas, sola con su abuelo y Okja. La ruptura de este plano, por tanto, nos habla del paso repentino para la pequeña de habitar en un mundo a su medida a desenvolverse en otro en el que su existencia es insignificante.

Ahora bien, la estructura narrativa que propone Bong es precisamente lo opuesto al coming of age. La aventura de Mija no persigue la conquista de un lugar en el gran mundo, sino la reconquista de su micromundo infantil y natural (la asociación de ambos conceptos es muy significativa). Mija encuentra esa fuerza interior que la caracteriza precisamente en la negación vehemente de la idea de madurez. Es muy elocuente la escena en la que brota por primera vez el empuje heroico de la pequeña. Cuando su abuelo le revela que la ha engañado para que la corporación estadounidense se lleve a su amiga Okja a Nueva York, el hombre justifica su proceder en una normatividad adulta. Ya era demasiado mayor para pasarse los días jugando con su mascota, el destino de ésta era ser comida, ni siquiera era de su propiedad, más bien debería ir pensando en un futuro esposo, etc. Incluso, a modo de consuelo, el abuelo le regala un cerdo de oro que ha adquirido con el dinero que supuestamente iba a emplear en comprar a Okja. Es decir, que Bong plantea una madurez fuertemente ideologizada que se proyecta sobre Mija, basada en la aceptación de un mundo materialista, funcional y patriarcal. La firmeza con la que Mija rechaza esa idea de madurez nos habla de un carácter forjado precisamente en las antípodas de ese universo. Y del resultado de ese proceso de «antimadurez», nada tan revelador como el uso final que termina teniendo ese cerdo de oro para forjar la relación que Mija sella entre ambos mundos: la vida al margen de la falsedad del mundo capitalista, parece deslizar Bong en un desenlace tan sombrío, solo es posible mediante el aislamiento total y poco más que la resignación ante sus injusticias. Que el propio director se pone del lado de su pequeña heroína es evidente en escenas como la huida de Okja por las galerías del metro de Seúl. Con tono festivo (podríamos decir que hasta sanferminero), la cámara se va recreando en cómo la criatura arrasa a su paso con ciudadanos que tratan de hacerse selfies corriendo delante de ella y tiendas con estanterías repletas de productos. Dedica, pues, unos minutos a la simple diversión (contagiosa) de destrozar un pedazo de la sociedad consumista.

«Como película que se acoge a ciertos códigos emocionales del subgénero «niña y animalito» a la vez que los enmarca en un contexto más amplio y desesperanzado, da cuenta de lo fascinante que puede resultar la mezcla. De lo contagiosa que es su combinación de espíritus contestatario y naif. Pocas veces la adorabilidad de semejantes protagonistas-tipo se ha empleado con tanta naturalidad, sin maniqueísmos, como dardo a la vez que refugio ante el mundo en el que vivimos».


La relación entre la Corea rural y la Nueva York cosmopolita que mueve el relato, además, es legible como una salida lúdica a la propia condición de Bong como director a caballo entre una cinematografía «periférica» y un sistema de producción globalizado y americanizado. Las críticas a la cultura estadounidense (que en buena medida es sinónimo de universal) ya se podían rastrear en The Host o Snowpiercer, pero en Okja son más explícitas que nunca. Caracteres como los de Tilda Swinton o, sobre todo, Jake Gyllenhaal, están dispuestos como mera caricaturización de una sociedad obsesionada por el estímulo de la imagen, el espectáculo y la novedad continua. Con ellos, el cineasta lleva más lejos que nunca su querencia por los excesos bufos, sin que esta vez exista rescate posible de unos personajes que tras la máscara pública de sonrisas y diversión esconden una psicopatía sin matices. La situación del cineasta entre ambas esferas, lejos de limitarle, parece situarle en una vista privilegiada para observar las contradicciones de una relación tan significativa de nuestro presente como la que existe entre lo global y lo local. Incluso la propia criatura Okja es metaforizable respecto al director: un animal de origen antinatural (ha sido creado mediante mutaciones genéticas), concebido para nada más que el consumo, es capaz sin embargo de las muestras más naturales de ternura, inteligencia y compañerismo con su criadora. Pese a que la lógica de producción en cadena en la que se la sitúa da pie a lecturas desgarradoras, el mensaje esperanzador que planea se encuentra en la idea de que incluso la creación más funcional puede convertirse en algo bello si se limpia la mirada hacia ella de utilitarismos. Así, Bong abraza la paradoja de erigirse como el más globalizable de los directores surcoreanos a la vez que el más comprometido con causas contrarias a ese globalismo dominante. Okja, como película que se acoge a ciertos códigos emocionales del subgénero «niña y animalito» a la vez que los enmarca en un contexto más amplio y desesperanzado, da cuenta de lo fascinante que puede resultar la mezcla. De lo contagiosa que es su combinación de espíritus contestatario y naif. Pocas veces la adorabilidad de semejantes protagonistas-tipo se ha empleado con tanta naturalidad, sin maniqueísmos, como dardo a la vez que refugio ante el mundo en el que vivimos. | ★★★★ |

*Recommended Movie*

The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show's questions. Each chapter of Jamal's increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show's seemingly impossible quizzes. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out. At the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

          Onderwater zwemmen in troebel water zonder adem te kunnen halen   
Twee dagen (te?) lang verkeerde ik in de nachtmerrie genaamd 'Malina'. Na vijftig bladzijden moest ik grote innerlijke weerstand overwinnen om niet te stoppen met verder lezen.

Maar net als het niet kunnen wegkijken bij een dramatisch ongeluk dat zich voor je ogen voltrekt, las ik gestaag verder.

Het lezen van 'Malina' kan ik omschrijven als onderwater zwemmen in troebel water zonder adem te kunnen halen.



Het is - na de 'Glazen stolp' van Sylvia Plath - zonder meer het meest deprimerende en zwartgalligste boek dat ik ooit gelezen heb.
Hele dialogen waren niet te begrijpen. Wartaal met een duister randje.
Andere delen waren pure poëzie.

Met een duister randje.

Dat de schrijfster Ingeborg Bachmann het grootste deel van de dag onder invloed was van kalmeringstabletten en kampte met depressies verbaast me niets. Ze balanceerde op de rand van de waanzin. En toch schittert haar intelligentie dwars door alle chaos heen.

Ontluisterend zijn de verwijzingen naar levend verbranden, verminkt raken door brand, roken, zelfmutilatie en ambulances. Ingeborg Bachmann overleed in haar appartement in Rome doordat een smeulende sigaret haar in vlam zette.

Enkele citaten:

"Zo leef ik als een halve wilde in een magische wereld, voor de eerste maal bevrijd van de oordelen en vooroordelen van mijn omgeving, zelf niet meer in staat tot een oordeel over de wereld, maar alleen tot een ogenblikkelijk antwoord, tot gehuil en gejammer, geluk en vreugde, honger en dorst, want ik heb te lang niet geleefd" - blz 47

"Wie een waarom heeft in het leven, verdraagt bijna elke hoe" - blz 138

"Daar is de reden te vinden, waar nog niemand naar gezocht heeft, waarom alleen vrouwen voortdurend hun hoofd vol hebben met hun gevoelens en hun affaires, met hun man of hun mannen. Het denken daaraan neemt in feite het grootste deel van de tijd van elke vrouw in beslag. Maar ze móet eraan denken, omdat ze het anders letterlijk, zonder het nooit verslappende koesteren en stimuleren van haar gevoel, nooit met een man zou kunnen uithouden, die immers een zieke is en zich nauwelijks met haar bezighoudt.' - blz 172

"Want zulke wensen doen nog wat leven ontstaan op de momenten dat ik te weinig leven heb naast Malina's leven." - blz 185

"De oude professor, die op dat moment tevens rector was droeg een vuile kamerjas, hij had pas nog een orde uit Griekenland gekregen, waarvoor weet ik niet en hij begon te vragen zeer geïrriteerd door het feit dat een kandidaat ontbrak als gevolg van overlijden, maar ik was tenminste verschenen en nog niet dood." - blz 195

"IK: Misschien heb je gelijk. Soms denk ik dat ik mezelf weer terugkrijg zoals ik vroeger was. Ik denk te graag aan de tijd waarin ik alles had, waarin mijn blijheid de ware blijheid was en mijn ernst de goede ernst. Daarna is alles beschadigd, gekwetst, gebruikt, misbruikt en tenslotte kapotgemaakt. Langzaam heb ik me hersteld, ik heb de steeds groter wordende gaten gedicht en ik geloof dat ik genezen ben. Nu ben ik dus bijna weer zoals ik was. Maar waar is die weg goed voor geweest?" 
MALINA: Die weg is nergens goed voor, hij is er voor iedereen alleen hoeft niet iedereen hem te gaan. Maar op een dag zou je heen en weer moeten kunnen schakelen tussen je teruggevonden ik en een toekomstig ik dat niet meer het oude ik kan zijn. Zonder inspanning, zonder ziekte zonder spijt." - blz 197

"Want vandaag is een woord dat alleen zelfmoordenaars zouden mogen gebruiken, voor alle anderen heeft het volstrekt geen betekenis, voor hen is 'vandaag' slechts de benaming van een willekeurige dag, namelijk vandaag, het is hun duidelijk dat ze opnieuw acht uur moeten werken of vrij nemen, een paar boodschappen zullen doen, iets moeten aanschaffen een ochtend- en een avondblad lezen, koffiedrinken, iets vergeten zijn, een afspraak hebben, iemand moeten opbellen - een dag dus waarop iet moet gebeuren of liever toch niet te veel gebeurt." - blz 5

En net als bij het wakker worden uit een nachtmerrie, vol verstrikkingen en angsten, ben ik blij (verrast) dat ik het boek uitgelezen heb, maar vooral verrukt dat het voorbij en voor altijd uit is.

          Omnia in omnibus - De onderaardse wereld van Athanasius Kircher - Anton Haakman   
Dit wordt al mijn derde stukje over een boek van Anton Haakman. Eerder schreef ik over 'Het Paradijs' en 'Afgronden. Verontrustende literatuur uit de romantiek.'
Ik ben een groot liefhebber van zijn boeken.

'De onderaardse wereld van Athanasius Kircher' gaat over Anton Haakman's (decennia lange) zoektocht naar Athanasius Kircher.
Kircher was een Jezuïet, wetenschapper en uitvinder in de renaissancetijd.
De man was een even groot genie als fantast wiens levensmotto 'Omnia in Omnibus' was - in alles zit alles vervat.
Kircher zocht naar geheime sleutels, een zoektocht naar de heilige graal. Hij interpreteerde vanuit de éne wetenschap de andere en zag verbanden daar waar ze ver te zoeken waren.

Anton Haakman heeft lang en grondig onderzoek gedaan naar Kircher en zijn vele (véle) geschriften, brieven en biografieën.
Tijdens deze zoektocht stuitte hij op obscure persoonlijkheden uit de Jezuïetenorde. Ze verkochten onder andere zogenaamde herdrukken van boeken van Kircher, op speciaal geschept papier, hand gebonden in het fijnste oasegeitenleer uit Zuid-Afrika en voorzien van bandstempels van bladgoud. En dit voor een luttele 50.000 DM per uitgave.
Tevens deden deze geheimzinnige Commendatores wetenschappelijk onderzoek naar Kircher waarvoor ze vele donaties verzamelden en leningen afsloten. En dit alles uiteraard in naam van de paus.

Anton Haakman's boek begint met een levensbeschrijving van Kircher zelf. Zijn eerste stappen als Jezuïet. De rampen die hem overkomen waarin god hem altijd genade schenkt. De hiërogliefen die hij meent te kunnen ontcijferen en die volgens hem een geheimtaal van god zijn (de sleutel).
Overigens heeft hij zijn eigen (foutieve) vertalingen in een Egyptische Obelisk laten graveren welke nog steeds op een plein in Rome prijkt. Naast Egyptoloog was hij tevens geoloog, sinoloog, medicus, talenwetenschapper, muziekwetenschapper, eigenlijk alleswetenschapper.
Hij maakte uitzinnige uitvindingen; Rekenmachines, toverlantaarns, kattenpianos, reusachtige megafoons waarmee je dingen kon omroepen die een dorp verder te vernemen waren, een eolische harp, een zelfspelend orgel en nog véél meer. Hij ontwierp zelfs een eigen wereldtaal. Sommige van zijn uitvindingen waren mysterieuze kastjes waar we het nut nu niet van kunnen achterhalen. Andere uitvindingen waren niet van zijn hand maar patenteerde hij wel.
Een aantal van zijn ontdekkingen waren werkelijk geniaal. Hij was bijvoorbeeld de eerste die beweerde dat de veroorzaker van de pest een klein diertje was in het bloed (micro-organisme) en hij stelde hygiënische maatregelen voor ter voorkoming van verdere verspreiding.

Halverwege het boek neemt het verhaal een andere wending. De hedendaagse 'Commendatore' en zwendelaar Arno Beck begint dan een grotere rol te spelen en vormt een raamvertelling binnen de wereld van Athanasius Kircher.
In 1974 maakte Anton Haakman samen met Pieter Verhoeff hier een documentaire over 'In het voetspoor van Athanasius Kircher'. Binnenkort krijg ik de gelegenheid om deze documentaire te bekijken.

Persoonlijk heb ik een fascinatie voor geniale fantasten uit het verleden.

Zelf deed ik ooit een poging om in de voetsporen van Giacomo Casanova te treden. Bezocht zijn huis in Venetië. Door stom toeval (Omnia in Omnibus?) werkte ik overigens negen maanden in het voormalig pand (Herengracht 507) van burgemeestersdochter Hester Hooft - één van Casanova's minnaressen. Ik ontdekte dit pas in mijn laatste week op die locatie, dat Casanova letterlijk in míjn voetsporen was getreden. Maar ik dwaal af...
Casanova was een charmante, intelligente vakleugenaar vol grootheidswaanzin.
Ik heb ook een zwak voor onze eigen Boudewijn Büch. Hij kon zo enthousiast zijn boeken en zijn liefde voor Goethe aan de man brengen maar leefde ondanks zijn gigantische bibliotheek van drie verdiepingen aan de Amsterdamse grachten (waar hij op een gegeven moment een matras op de grond had gelegd om tussen zijn boeken te slapen) op het randje van faillissement.
Tijdens zijn leven verzon hij vreemdsoortige academische graden (in werkelijkheid Mulo), relaties (meestal beweerde hij dat deze homosexueel van aard waren terwijl al zijn bekende relaties zonder uitzondering heterosexueel waren) en zelfs het hebben van een kind. Toen hij daar niet goed meer mee weg kwam binnen zijn vriendenkring verzon hij een verhaal dat het kind ziek was geworden, liet het sterven en veinsde een lange rouwperiode.
Athanasius Kircher doet me ook denken aan Ernst Haeckel, een zoöloog bekend om zijn prachtige kleurrijke tekeningen. Haeckel nam het echter niet zo nauw met de werkelijkheid en was net als Kircher een interpreteermaniak. Zijn tekeningen werden overigens op scholen gebruikt in het onderwijs.
Als vroom jezuïet interpreteerde Athanasius Kircher uiteraard alles in overeenstemming met de bijbel. Dit leidde tot soms bizarre verklaringen.

Enkele weken terug kreeg ik een rondleiding in het Teylers Museum in Leiden (één van Nederlands mooiste musea). Daar lag het fossiel van 'de zondvloedmens'.
"Johann Jacob Scheuchzer, de stadsdokter van Zürich, kreeg het fossiel in handen. Hij zag erin de schedel, ribben, hersenen en zelfs de lever van een mens. Opgewekt publiceerde hij dan ook in 1726, 4032 jaar na de zondvloed, over het fossiel als Homo diluvii testis et theoscopos: ‘de mens die getuige was van de zondvloed en God heeft gezien’.
"
Bij nader onderzoek bleek het hier om een reuzensalamander te gaan.
In de tijdgeest en het verklaren van elk wetenschappelijk fenomeen in lijn met de bijbel is het niet vreemd dat men toen zeer enthousiast werd dat men bewijs had gevonden van mensen gestorven tijdens de zondvloed. Ook Athanasius Kircher schreef een boek over de ark van Noach en gaf daarbij zelfs fabeldieren (zoals de eenhoorn) een plek.

De rondleiding in het Teylers museum voerde ons ook door de antieke bibliotheek, met daarin het aangekochte kastje uit de erfenis van Boudewijn Buch (met het Dodo-botje en de kleine Beagle maquette). In de kasten van het Teylers museum (het museum is overigens vergelijkbaar met het museum van Kircher van weleer) lagen allerhande uitvindingen, velen uit de tijd van Kircher.

Het gaf me een beetje een deja-vu gevoel. Het boek van Anton Haakman dat ik aan het lezen was. Zijn boek nodigde uit tot verder onderzoek op internet. Ineens was ik ook op zoek naar Athanasius Kircher en zelfs een beetje naar Anton Beck. De prachtige prenten in de boeken van Kircher wekten een onbestemd esoterisch gevoel bij mij op.
De connectie die ik maakte tussen Kircher en Haeckel, Casanova en Büch. De manier waarop ik in het verleden door stomme toevalligheid (lot?) een eerder boek van Anton Haakman vond en mijn interesse gewekt was in de schrijver A. Haakman.
De rondleiding in het Teylers museum met daar ineens dat kastje van Büch, de zondvloedmens (volledig in lijn met de geschriften van Kircher), het dodo botje, de vreemde uitgestalde uitvindingen.
Ik waande me even in Athanasius Kirchers museum, verbonden door onzichtbare lijntjes naar het heden.

Zou het dan toch?


Omnia in Omnibus?


          Donald the Drama Queen   

Many of our Presidents have had descriptive nicknames associated with them:  Washington was the “Father of His Country”, Madison was “Father of the Constitution”, Lincoln was “Honest Abe”, Teddy Roosevelt was “The Trust Buster”, Wilson was “The Schoolmaster”, and Reagan was “The Great Communicator”.  Other Presidents have simply been known by their initials:  Franklin Roosevelt was “FDR”, Kennedy was “JFK”.  Nothing more was needed.  Until now, however, we’ve never had a president identified by the term “drama queen”.  Granted, mention of the Trump “presidency” will more often than not be accompanied by an asterisk, but, let’s assume for one moment that he is the President.  The one thing that will never be footnoted are his all-too-frequent forays onto the catwalk of crazy.  He pirouettes and sashays in outrageous form, depending on the mood d’jour:  temper tantrums, megalomania run amok, misogynistic rants... the lunacy is limitless.

One moment he’ll prattle on about “fake news” (which he pretty much invented--see his false and shameful Obama birth certificate claims, among other fabrications), the next he’s being called on the carpet for doctoring a Time Magazine cover (from 2 March 2009) and posting this fraudulent piece of self-promotion (“Trump is hitting on all cylinders... even TV” uh huh, as if any legitimate source would have written that!) at four of his country clubs for all to admire.  Talk about “fake news”...
If he’s not telling outright lies, then he’s whining about any number of supposed grievances and manipulating the media.
“Obama had me bugged!” (demonstrably false).  “Obama was colluding with the Russians!” (didn’t he claim the Russians weren’t colluding with anyone, because they would never meddle in our elections?).  “My Inauguration crowd was the biggest ever!” (Sorry Diva Don, the empty space was epic--the proof is in the photos).  “Comey should be careful, there could be tapes...” (then watch him drag this out as long as possible--much like his claim that he might one day release his taxes).  “Let me turn the announcement of my Supreme Court nominee into a three ring circus, or a cheesy game show”--(playing coy, trying to hide his identity, scheduling the announcement as though it were some great unveiling.  It was embarrassing, as well as disgraceful.
Last, but certainly not least, Donald the Drama Queen surfaces most consistently on his Twitter feed.  Trump cannot tolerate criticism in any form, nor can he stand it when he's not the center of attention. He's unable to play well with others... but as a paranoid narcissist, how could he?  While portraying himself as a much maligned victim, he has verbally assaulted countless individuals, news sources, and organizations in the course of these late night Twitter rants.  One assumes these have been collected for posterity--a testament to the Trump years. 
In the meantime, let’s let the “leader” of the Free World speak for himself, as he did so eloquently on 6/29/17.  Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, have incurred Trump’s wrath by failing to praise him in the sycophantic style of his cabinet.  He tweeted:

I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017


Rage on, drama queen, rage on... but please make America great again--by resigning.

          Aggeggi tecnologici   
Fosse per me, passerei le giornate a provare nuovi aggeggi più o meno tecnologici.
Fortunatamente c'è Sony che, nelle ultime settimane, ha deciso di inviarmi due prodotti con cui divertirmi.

Il primo è uno speaker bluetooth, l'evoluzione dell'XB3 che ho da un anno circa: l'XB40.


Rispetto al modello precedente, questo ha alcune caratteristiche un po' più "tamarre" (ad esempio l'illuminazione che segue il ritmo del brano, ma che si può tranquillamente disabilitare) ma anche decisamente migliori: volume e bassi più potenti in primis, ma anche esteticamente lo trovo molto più bello (o comunque si adatta meglio all'arredamento di casa mia, che equivale ad almeno 5 punti in più). Per ricaricarlo ha un suo alimentatore, mentre la presa usb che ha sul retro serve per ricaricare altri dispositivi (io l'ho usata per attaccarci un ventilatore, trasformando immediatamente un ottimo speaker bluetooth in un oggetto imperdibile durante l'estate). Ah: è impermeabile, quindi magari non potrete usarlo dentro alla piscina, ma a bordovasca sicuramente.

Il secondo aggeggio è un lettore bluray 4K Ultra Hd: l'UBP-X800.


Anche vicino alla Ava è bellissimo: niente display, due pulsanti (uno per accenderlo, uno per aprire lo sportello), uno sportellino con l'ingresso usb e un telecomando per gestire tutto (ha anche il pulsante per accedere subito a Netflix, visto che all'interno ha un sistema operativo che permette di utilizzare i maggiori player streaming, oltre che guardare il bluray inserito o i contenuti della chiavetta usb.
Ha tutte le caratteristiche che dovrebbe avere un lettore bluray di questo livello (quindi, se siete appassionati di 3D e avete una televisione che lo supporta, questo lettore legge anche i bluray 3D), ma quelle che più interessano a me sono l'HDR e il 4K.
Al momento le mie uniche esperienze con queste tecnologie sono i contenuti Netflix che offrono tali "extra", quindi ho subito acquistato Revenant per testare il lettore (nella confezione c'era Inferno ma già l'avevo visto e, come dire, non merita una seconda visione).
Che dire? Io non sono uno di quei malati di mente che riescono a distinguere immediatamente un mp3 da un cd (a meno che l'mp3 non sia di qualità davvero infima) o un video in 2k da uno in 4k, ma devo dire che si vede terribilmente da paura (c'è da dire che mi son fatto consigliare da un amico su quale film acquistare per testare al meglio il tutto: Revenant quindi già di suo è fatto ottimamente in 4k). Anche la Vale è rimasta abbastanza a bocca aperta.
Ah: so che effettua anche l'upscaling sui bluray "normali", ma ancora non ho controllato il risultato finale.
So che anche l'audio offerto da questo lettore è decisamente "importante", ma dovrei andare a testarlo a casa dell'amico col cinema homemade per poter dare un giudizio più approfondito su questo aspetto.
Ultime cose: ha il wifi, ha il bluetooth per collegare ad esempio lo speaker di prima, ha una porta ethernet. Credo di avervi detto tutto (o almeno tutto quello di cui capisco qualcosa).

Ah, colgo pure l'occasione per ringraziare Amazon che, avendo notato l'arrivo di questo lettore bluray, ha deciso di regalarmi una copia di The Accountant per testarlo in modo ancor più approfondito (e anche, presumo, per far sapere a tutti che i bluray 4K sono ormai disponibili per tutte le ultime uscite e non solo). Ancora non l'ho visto (a parte i primi 20 minuti), ma ho avuto la conferma del mio odio per Anna Kendrick.


PS: in realtà Sony mi ha inviato anche una soundbar + subwoofer, ma ne parlerò più avanti.

Disclaimer: spesso ricevo prodotti in omaggio, per testarli ed eventualmente parlarne. Altre volte invece li ricevo solo in prestito, per gli stessi motivi. 
In questo caso Sony ha deciso di regalarmi sia il lettore bluray che lo speaker. 
La soundbar invece è solo in prova.
          Friday words, 2017-06-30   
It is the height o' the summer here, but despite that (because of it?), I and my wife, in that order, both experienced a train wreck of a cold or flu or something, and life around here pretty much ground to a halt. But things seem to be getting back on track. Including, of course, words!

I ran across today's new-to-me-word while reading on old piece by Sarah Vowell. She talks about her days in high-school marching band, which included wearing a shako. From context, I derived that she was referring to the hat, but it did send me to investigate this term.

Sure enough, a shako is a particular kind of hat, one that's conical and that has some sort of plume. Here's an example:

[source]

These days, shakos are part of uber-ceremonial military dress—honor guards, parade dress, and whatnot—and of the uniforms of marching bands, which follow military fashion. (They are, let's remember, marching bands.) Historically, shakos were part of military field dress, back in the way-before-camo days. Fun fact: per Wikipedia, shakos were developed as an improvement over earlier military hats. ("Looks great, András, but don't you think we should add a plume?")

There is of course the question of how to say this word. We get the word from Hungarian via French, so who knows, right? "Shack-oh"? "Shake-oh"? Per reputable dictionaries, both pronunciations seem to be ok.

          UNA ENTREVISTA   
LA SIGUIENTE ENTREVISTA FUE PUBLICADA EN EL SEMANARIO "TIEMPO 21", EL VIERNES SEIS DE ENERO DE 2012
Por Ireneo Funes, periodista. Paradójicamente, esta entrevista fue realizada desde Concepción, lugar donde resido desde hace un tiempo. Y la paradoja no está dada por la lejanía, que internet soslaya, sino porque Marín, “desencantado de cierto periodismo temuquense”, me pidió a mí que, tras leer su reciente novela “Ciudad Sur” (Del Aire Editores), que presentó en el Museo Ferroviario “Pablo Neruda” de Temuco el 16 de diciembre pasado, le hiciera algunas preguntas sobre la misma. ¿Cómo sintetizas tu libro “Ciudad Sur”? Una novela de 17 relatos inspirada en hechos acaecidos entre 1990 y 2007 en una ciudad ubicada entre los 38 grados de latitud sur y los 72 grados de longitud oeste, los cuales son narrados, ya en primera o tercera persona, por el periodista Antonio Roquentin, y cuyo antagonista es el empresario que fundó y desfondó una universidad. Como dice un crítico, “Ciudad Sur” despliega con risa y con llanto un carnaval de esperpentos culturales, engendros salidos del libertinaje económico, la egolatría demente, las miserias de los artistas y las fanfarronerías literarias. Qué dificultades y facilidades tiene un escritor que radica y radicaliza su contexto literario y humano en el sur de Chile? Entiendo que Temuco y Concepción son realidades diferentes. El tema de la visibilidad, en un contexto general de neo-analfabetismo y retroceso literario, es un vía crucis para casi todos. A mí no me ha afectado mayormente la distancia de Santiago, porque hice algunos estudios allá y he estado involucrado en la escena nacional (es un decir) desde el año 2003; además, Temuco también ha protagonizado ciertos hitos literarios relevantes. Lo complicado es la mentalidad pueblerina: esclerótica, dada a las genuflexiones y donde los funcionarios, hasta los más ignorantes y cobardes, se creen seres superiores. Hace un mes participé en una lectura y el director de la entidad convocante, tras hacer una introducción de 15 minutos, leyó un poema muy malo dedicado a la Mistral, habló de los fantasmas de su prócer y pidió un afectado aplauso hacia los poetas. Su cortesía enfurecida y mojigata –como de huaso ofreciendo porotos con champaña– es un ejemplo de cómo se entiende la cultura en estos lares.
