Hollywood is a city in Broward County, Florida, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The average temperature is between 68 and 83 degrees. As of July 1, 2015 Hollywood has a population of 149,728. Founded in 1925, the city grew rapidly in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now the twelfth largest city in Florida. Hollywood is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census.


Joseph W. Young founded the city in 1925. He dreamed of building a motion picture colony on the East Coast of the United States and named the town after Hollywood, California. Young bought up thousands of acres of land around 1920, and named his new town "Hollywood by the Sea" to distinguish it from his other real estate venture, "Hollywood in the Hills", in New York


Young had a vision of having lakes, golf courses, a luxury beach hotel, country clubs, and a main street, Hollywood Boulevard. After the 1926 Miami hurricane, Hollywood was severely damaged; local newspapers reported that Hollywood was second only to Miami in losses from the storm. Following upon Young's death in 1934, the city encountered more terrific hurricanes and not only that, but the stock market crashed with personal financial misfortunes. It felt as though the city was tumbling slowly piece by piece with all of those tragic events taking place.


Hollywood is a planned city. On Hollywood Boulevard is the Mediterranean-style Joseph Young Mansion, built around 1921, making it one of the oldest houses in Hollywood.

          Stocks Going Ex Dividend the First Week of July   
Here is our latest update on the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the process of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend. This technique generally works only in bull markets, and can work in flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the technique during bear markets.
In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date. The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks.
WallStreetNewsNetwork.com has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the quarterly dividend amount, and annual yield.




J P Morgan Chase & Co (JPM) 7/3/2017 0.5 2.22%
American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) 7/5/2017 0.125 4.31%
American Express Company (AXP) 7/5/2017 0.32 1.51%
Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS) 7/5/2017 0.15 8.00%
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) 7/5/2017 0.39 2.71%
Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) 7/5/2017 0.29 3.32%

The additional ex-dividend stocks can be found here at wstnn.com. (If you have been to the website before, and the latest link doesn’t show up, you may have to empty your cache.) If you like dividend stocks, you should check out some of the other high yield stock lists at WallStreetNewsNetwork.com or WStNN.com. Most of the lists are free.Dividend definitions:
Declaration date: the day that the company declares that there is going to be an upcoming dividend.
Ex-dividend date: the day on which if you buy the stock, you would not be entitled to that particular dividend; or the first day on which a shareholder can sell the shares and still be entitled to the dividend.
Monthly Dividend Stock List

Record date: the day when you must be on the company’s books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks at two business days before the record date.
Payment date: the day on which the dividend payment is actually made, which can be as long at two months after the ex date.

It's been almost six months since I last blog, and this morning I thought to myself if I don't start again then I would forever lose my interest in lady macaron...and there are a lot of macaron bakers these days in Jakarta but you know what gotta stay true to yourself right...

Two of my closest friends, Revka & Putri with Minami whom I just met this week.
Work has been fun, intense, and has its up and downs but most of the time is really FUN/ no joke. I had my first year anniversary at work on the 21st of October, didn't really celebrate it but I had some terrifying thoughts of what I've achieved in the past year and whether this has all been worth it. Now that I'm slowly writing and contemplating my thoughts...let's see...

One of the things I love to do is exercise, and sweat it all out. It keeps me sane and it really does lift my moody mood 'slightly'. As strange as it may look I run around the pool in my ghetto 80s aerobic get-up every morning. Bikram Yoga is also a luxury and when you have the time, DO IT!

As much as my conscience is oppose to what I do at work, I am having a blast...it whispers at night, asking me why am I doing this when my passion since I was growing up is making beautiful clothes..designing, finding inspirations, and being alone in a studio...cutting fabrics, jotting down ideas and befriending my own thoughts... So you might ask what is it that I actually do at work?

Halloween Sunday Food Market at Potato Head outdoor patio.

The university of Potato Head as my mom calls it, when you graduate out of it, then you can practically conquer anything the world kicks back at ya! It is a Restaurant & Bar in Jakarta and it's one of the best place in town for cocktail, food, ambiance and everything else in one cool capsule. My second home...as I tell the occasional strangers and friends who frequently ask me "Are you here everyday? everyday??!!! really EVERDAY???!!!!

This is an example of our flyer, we have a graphic team who designed the image, but all the context and ideas all comes from Potato Head.

My morning routine usually starts with me walking in to the bar- straight to the end of the bench, put my laptop on the round table, my bags down and mobile phone next to my mac. I checked the reservations for today, see if all the promotional flyers we currently have are on display on each and every tables. Then off I check my emails again... Although my business card says Public Relation Manager, I also manage our internal events with my tight-knit team and our director is very much involved in all the initial ideas right on through the implementations. As anyone successful in their profession would say communication is essential and I can't agree more. Used to be my biggest challenge as I tend to keep things inside emotionally and not let everyone worry or get stressed out but in the end it didn't help much...

This is Glass Candy performing Live at Potato Head on Saturday Nov. 6th. Ida No and Johnny Jewel of Glass Candy/Chromatics rocks! The most down to earth guy and Ida No danced her spirit away...They're a cool band I think, very psychedelic and different than the mainstream, however I find the music market here is either categorized as the indie young kids or the older types who goes for David Foster and friends...I still haven't figured out what the "yuppies" are into, and it's a challenge to bring artists here that would appeal to Potato Head young adult audience. Or perhaps they just don't care?

Since I love to write, I do most of the writing for the promotional flyers, I'm not an experienced copywriter, I have no background in professional writing, but fortunately I have a very good boss who is very articulate and checks what I write, corrects them and revise things to sound more edgy and appropriate. I make sure they are printed on time to be distributed and we do a big event check list to make sure when the artists come to town we are prepared for the big day. Why I'm still doing what I'm doing is because you get an instant self gratification when the event that your team and yourself spend so much on preparing and promoting does very well. It's jam packed, our guests are enjoying the music, cocktails, food, ambiance and at the end of the day you know it is a successful event and judged by the target sales the restaurant achieved. If I go back to being a fashion designer, there's an indefinite process of being shelled in a studio, spending similar long hours on a collection/project and at the end of the show can you really tell that the audience will love it, buy them and stocks them in their boutique. Do I want to go back living my days running around town looking for fabrics, chasing my tailor, going back and forth perfecting the right cut and at the end of the day will they sell? and it all comes down to how much do I want all that back...

This is the plan of what the shop one fine day will look like. With installations, pop up projects, artist exhibitions, and challenging the classic notion of the shopper experience. A gallery, a shared space or just a cool boutique all in one. Emotion is a big thing for me, to feel all your senses juxtaposing in all directions when you enter the space, intimidated, awed and shocked. Surprised, happy and sad.

I still have so much to learn from Potato Head, as I said I have not graduated yet, it is still a learning process and I love love love everyone at work. Why would I quit now when there are still so many things I can challenge myself, give myself more responsibilities, test my strength and lead a bigger team...Potato Head has open doors for me, I've been introduced to so many people in different genres of music, art and fashion. It's been whirlwind year, and people say I work too much, maybe sometimes I do and I need to spend more time alone and go out with my friends more often. Hopefully by getting back to writing here I can balance my life more productively and emotionally.

This is Potato Head Beach Club Bali, my brother and his partner current BIG PROJECT. A massive space with three restaurants, bars and a basement concept store (MY SECRET PROJECT). Measuring 150sqm the shop will sell everything from fashion to furniture. Think Merci in Paris, Corso Como in Italy and Anthropologie in LA. Yes that is my personal aim that it will be a shopper destination in Bali promoting Indonesian designers and produce.

So you might ask me now, am I happy, I don't know, am I enjoying my job, yes I am...isn't there a quote that goes something like if a man does not love his job than it is the saddest thing in the world...or what makes life worth living if a man does not love his job....and I could only use my brother as the perfect example. His work is his life, they embodies his spirit, joy, excitement, sadness, all the five senses and he lives for his work. And because they are all his passions and hobbies, everyone always tell me that "Oh your brother never works, or he should start doing some real job" and gosh I can tell you I hear that almost every day. But you know what now that I think about it, he doesn't need to show that he 'works' the conventional way to people because he only has himself and God to prove and the results is proven at the end of the day.

So salut to him and his partner who I have the utmost respect...and what I can only advise to you and myself having doubts at work is...


To find joy in work is to discover the fountain of youth. Pearl S. Buck.

My fountain of youth is having smoother skin and slimmer figure then I can say I am truly happy...ha ha ha

This post is sponsored by Overstock.com. Celebrate big savings on a huge assortment of items for your home during Overstock.com’s Independence Day Sale, now through July 10th! I’ve been working on a few rooms lately (yay!), one of them being the former sleeping porch behind the kitchen. We’ve never made good use of the room. I initially thought it would be my office, but when that didn’t work out it served as a catchall, taking the overflow from the rest of the house. Maybe a year or so ago we added a little TV and rearranged things a bit, but we didn’t put much effort into making it look good. As I took over the former playroom for my office, I thought I would relocate all of the toys downstairs, but aside from the play kitchen (which is in the library right now), everything just ended up in the kids’ rooms. The room is small and has its quirks/annoyances. (If we’re ever able to do a massive renovation of the kitchen, this room would become part of that project, but we can’t do it right now so I’m working with what we’ve got.) Rather than make another playroom my kids […]

We hear a lot, especially from the Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, about how Donald Trump threatens democracy. Bezos’ plaything has recently chosen the melodramatic motto Democracy Dies in the Dark. So, clearly the stock market must be discounting Mr. Bezos’s future earnings under the lash of Trump, right?

          The Stock Market Meltdowns That Defined Our Nation   
America has survived five major crashes of the stock exchange – though each one left scars. Scott Nations joins us to detail the first in 1907, the most recent in 2010, as well as the ones in between. Plus, we’ll talk about what we learned from these disasters. His new book is called “A History of the United States in Five Crashes: Stock Market Meltdowns that Defined a Nation” (William Morrow).  
          Vino, ¿bebida nacional?: las importaciones desde Chile son récord y ya explican el 15% del consumo interno (iProfesional)   


El país vecino se convirtió en el principal proveedor externo. La causa es que los stocks están al límite y que las últimas dos cosechas figuran entre las peores desde los años `60. Sin embargo, alertan que los precios más bajos y las facilidades aduaneras también alientan el negocio


Por estos días, nadie debe verse sorprendido si, recorriendo las góndolas de supermercados, en botellas y envases tetrabrik de vino aparece una leyenda que informe "origen: Chile".

Los principales jugadores de la industria hoy están motorizando un nivel de importaciones desde el país vecino que está marcando un récord histórico.

Los productores vitícolas, que hacía tiempo venían reclamando una recomposición de los precios del kilo de uva –que durante años estuvo amesetado-, ven una amenaza concreta en el continuo ingreso de cientos de camiones con tanques cargados con vino, a través de la cordillera.

El flujo alcanza tal nivel que organizaciones como la Asociación de Viñateros Independientes de San Juan hasta evaluaron realizar piquetes en las rutas para evitar el avance de la competencia chilena.


La tensión en su momento alcanzó tal nivel que, en el marco de un encuentro con productores, el secretario de Agregado de Valor de la Nación, Néstor Roulet, afirmó que el Gobierno estaba monitoreando este flujo de importaciones ante la posibilidad de que se trate de una competencia desleal.

“Estamos viendo si se trata de un caso de dumping y si es así, el Gobierno Nacional se va a involucrar”, disparó el funcionario.


El gobernador de San Juan, Sergio Uñac, es uno de los que más viene protestando por el ingreso de camiones cargados con producto chileno.

"Importar vino sólo para bajar el precio no nos parece una medida acertada”, afirmó recientemente el mandatario provincial.

En este contexto, Mendoza viene de tomar medidas: a comienzos de año, la administración de Alfredo Cornejo aplicó un aumento de la alícuota de Ingresos Brutos al vino importado que ingrese a ese territorio, elevándola del 4% al 6%.

Con esta medida, buscó darle más protección a los productores cuyanos, en medio de las crecientes quejas por estas operaciones.

Para ponerlo en perspectiva, los últimos datos del Instituto Nacional de Vitivinicultura son reveladores: entre enero y mayo se importó vino a granel por 52,6 millones de litros.

El último récord desde que hay registros correspondía a 2010, cuando a lo largo de 12 meses se realizaron compras al exterior por 28,7 millones de litros.

Esto significa que, en apenas cinco meses, ya casi se duplicó ese volumen anual.


Hay otro dato revelador: según el INV, las bodegas despacharon al mercado interno 334,8 millone de litros fraccionados, en parte complementados con la ofertaimportada, dado que los grandes establecimientos envasan el granel que llega del país vecino y lo introducen en el circuito comercial.

Así las cosas, los 52,6 millones de litros que llegaron desde Chile hoy representan el 15% del volumen comercializado en el mercado interno.

O, dicho en otras palabras, por cada 10 litros que hasta mayo se comercializaron en la Argentina, más de 1,5 litros fueron en realidad producidos en el país vecino.

¿Oportunidad o falta de stock?
A medida que se potenció la importación, las críticas de los viñateros se hicieron más fuertes, dado que consideran este flujo como una forma directa de ponerle un tope a los precios de la materia prima en el mercado interno.

Fuentes del sector detallaron a iProfesional que el valor del vino a granel chileno, puesto en la puerta de una bodega en Mendoza, puede ser entre 15% y 25% más económico que el nacional, dado que la escasez generada por la caída de la producción durante las últimas dos cosechas disparó los valores de la materia primera.

Sin embargo, para el consultor Javier Merino, director de Área del Vino, no se trata de maniobras especulativassino de una necesidad real y concreta de abastecer la demanda.

"Las dos últimas cosechas, 2016 y 2017, fueron las peores de los últimos cincuenta años. Por eso, no debe extrañarnos que las importaciones también sean récord", acota.

Granizo, lluvias en los momentos menos propicios y hasta heladas, configuraron un cuadro difícil para varias zonas productivas de Mendoza y San Juan.

El experto agrega que "el año pasado, por la pérdida de parte de la producción, se limpiaron los stocks. Y una segunda vendimia también floja generó que no hoy no haya suficiente vino como para abastecer la demanda".

Según datos del INV, durante esta campaña se recolectaron 19,5 millones de quintales de uva. Si bien esta cifra fue superior a los 17,3 millones del año previo, se trató de un nivel que igualmente estuvo lejos delregistro histórico.


"En los últimos 20 años, el promedio de la cosecha es de cerca de 25 millones de quintales. Es decir que venimos de dos vendimias que se ubicaron muy por debajo y esto afectó los niveles de stock", afirma Carlos Fiochetta, gerente de la Corporación Vitivinícola Argentina (COVIAR).

El directivo señala que "hubo zonas de Mendoza que tradicionalmente tenían rendimientos de unos 10.000 kilos por hectárea pero que, por cuestiones climáticas, los dos últimos años mostraron caídas de hasta el 50%".

Más allá de esto, el directivo confía en que los flujos de importación deberían ir bajando, dado que en estos días están comenzando a liberarse al mercado parte de la cosecha 2017.

"Esto va a ayudar a recomponer los inventarios, por eso la proyección es que las compras a Chile no sigan creciendo e, incluso, bajen con fuerza", apunta Fiochetta.

Cerveza versus vino
Cabe destacar que, según Fiochetta, casi la totalidad de la producción que se importa desde Chile se destina a vinos sin denominación de variedad, que representan cerca del 80% de la oferta. La gran mayoría se comercializa en envases tetrabrik.

Este segmento conforma la base de la pirámide del consumo y es responsables de movilizar el amperímetro de ventas.

En este contexto, Merino advierte que esta bebida es uno de los productos más castigados por el bajón de la demanda.

Cabe destacar que en la Argentina el consumo percápita está estancado en torno a los 25 litros per cápita.

En la década del 70, cuando era común almorzar con vino y la cerveza no arrasaba en el market share, se superaban los 80 litros.

"Hemos llegado a un piso mínimo histórico. Pero así y todo, como las últimas cosechas fueron malas y no hay stock, no hay suficiente volumen. Y esto provocó que se disparara el precio, lo cual es preocupante, porque porcada peso que sube el litro, hay miles de consumidoresque dejan de comprar o buscan alternativas, como la cerveza", apunta Merino.

Si bien el consumo de esta última bebida también se vio afectado por la crisis, lo cierto es que supera holgadamente al vino, con más de 41 litros anuales per cápita.

Por eso, el consultor considera que "estas importaciones no sólo defienden a los consumidores, sino que también a la industria, porque cada litro que se pierde en manos de la cerveza, luego es muy difícilde recuperar".

Sufren las exportaciones


Como consecuencia de los menores stocks, además de tener que importar más, el complejo vitivinícola argentino padeció un desplome de las ventas al exterior.

Según datos del INV, entre enero y mayo se exportaron 127 millones de litros de vino a granel, lo que implicó un derrumbe del 48%.

En tanto que los envíos de mosto concentrado –utilizado por la industria alimenticia como endulzante- totalizaron apenas 21.700 hectolitros, una fuerte baja de casi 53%.

Frente a estos números, Fiochetta afirma que hay dos cuestiones que se potenciaron y que forzaron este escenario: la fuerte suba de precios y los problemas de competitividad cambiaria.

"El vino a granel y el mosto depende mucho del factorprecio. Con las bajas cosechas de los últimos años el producto se volvió muy caro para los exportadores y los dejó fuera de competencia, a lo que se suma el contexto macroeconómico del país", apunta.

Cabe destacar que los despachos al exterior de vino embotellado también se están viendo castigados: hasta mayo se exportaron 744.200 hectolitros, casi 10% menos que en el mismo período del año pasado.

Merino es contundente al afirmar que "en las gamas más bajas de precios, los costos no cierran".

A esto, el experto suma un cambio en las tendencias a nivel mundial: "El mercado internacional se ha puesto muy pesado. Ya no se puede aspirar a crecer a tasas chinas, porque los países productores europeos se pusieron muy competitivos y agresivos en los mercados importadores más dinámicos".

Por eso Merino afirma que "hoy no tenemos ninguna ventaja competitiva diferencial. A lo máximo que podemos aspirar hoy es a crecer en sintonía con la expansión del PBI mundial, es decir, a un promedio del 2% a 3% anual".

Para hacer frente a la situación, desde la Coviar vienen pidiendo una serie de beneficios fundamentales para apuntalar a esta economía regional estratégica.

Entre las medidas, Fiochetta menciona un aumento de los reintegros a las exportaciones o compensacionespara fletes, dados los elevados costos logísticos que enfrentan las bodegas.

Trump Revoked Key Pesticide Protections. We're Fighting Back.

The EPA has said that the protections would prevent at least a thousand acute poisonings every year.

The EPA has said that pesticide protections would prevent at least a thousand acute poisonings every year.

This past January, three brothers—ages 7, 9 and 11—and their 17-year-old sister, died in their home in Amarillo, Texas, because a highly toxic restricted-use pesticide was improperly applied in their home.

And just two years ago, a family on vacation in the U.S. Virgin Islands and another family in Florida were poisoned after applicators grossly misused restricted-use pesticides. The vacationing father and his children were paralyzed; in Florida, the family’s 10-year old son suffered significant brain damage.

These kinds of tragedies prompted the federal government to enact long overdue updates to the Certification of Pesticide Applicators Rule, also known as the CPA Rule. Designed to protect lives from restricted-use pesticides—some of the most hazardous chemicals that can only be used by certified professionals—the rule hadn’t been updated since Nixon was in office.

The EPA’s revised protections were supposed to go into effect in March, but Trump's new EPA chief, Scott Pruitt, delayed the CPA Rule from going into effect for at least a year. This month, Earthjustice and Farmworker Justice sued the EPA for this unlawful delay.

By delaying this rule, the Trump administration is putting workers, children and families at risk.

The CPA Rule ensures that children are not allowed to apply restricted-use pesticides and that certified applicators get updated annual trainings. It also requires applicators to have access to essential information about the products they use, so that they can wear appropriate protective gear and know what they’ve been exposed to if accidents happen.

By delaying this rule, the Trump administration is putting workers, children and families at risk. They are allowing poorly trained pesticide applicators to handle the most dangerous chemicals in the fields where we grow our food, where we work and where we live.   

Although urban dwellers sporadically face these dangerous pesticides in businesses, homes and schools; there are roughly one million farmworkers who, together with their families, face pesticide exposures on a daily basis. As a second generation Chicana who comes from a lineage of laborers, farmworkers, and in general, a population whose children are nearly twice as likely to attend schools in close proximity to use of hazardous pesticides, the EPA’s delay of the CPA Rule is unacceptable to me on a deeply personal level.

We know that in some areas, 16-year-old kids are applying restricted-use pesticides because there is no minimum age limit for the roughly one million certified applicators nationwide. Moreover, most of the farmworkers facing the gravest pesticide risks are not just migrants, they are often low-income Spanish and indigenous language speakers who need these protections the most.

The EPA estimates that as many as 20,000 farmworkers are poisoned by pesticides every year, yet the agency is still delaying action.

For perspective, this is like saying that we know every inhabitant in a U.S. town will suffer severe pesticide poisoning each year, but we simply prefer not to take action.

The EPA itself said that the now-delayed rule, which was developed after years of reviews, would prevent at least a thousand acute poisonings every year. While this isn’t enough to get to where we need to be, in a society that values all lives alike, this is a much-needed start. None of us should be OK with delaying life-saving rules.

The federal government may be eager to bow to industry barons who care more about profit than life, but we the people have to defend our families and the most vulnerable populations. So while it’s clear that we can’t count on the Trump administration to do the right thing, we can use the power of the law to force them into action.

In fact, that’s exactly what we’re doing.


          10 conseils pour des soldes éco-responsables   
Les vêtements ont la cote pendant les soldes
Les vêtements ont la cote pendant les soldes

Les réductions sont toutes plus alléchantes les unes que les autres. À prix cassé, on est tenté d'acheter plus. Mais pourquoi se précipiter ? Pendant les soldes, on peut aussi faire des achats réfléchis et éco-responsables.

Les vitrines des magasins affichent jusqu'à -70 %. Pendant les soldes, tout est mis en œuvre pour attirer le chaland. D’autant que cet hiver, les stocks sont plus importants que les années précédentes1. Ce sont surtout les vêtements qui attirent le plus les consommateurs, mais aussi les appareils électriques et électroniques, l’ameublement, les produits cosmétiques et d'hygiène...2

Comment concilier bonnes affaires et éco-consommation ?

Craquer à la seconde sur tout ce qui passe devant les yeux n'est bien sûr pas très écologique. Mais on peut très bien faire la chasse aux bonnes affaires tout en gardant une place à l’éco-consommation

Quelques gestes simples pendant les soldes

1 - Prendre le temps de faire le tri.

On jette un oeil dans ses armoires et dans son électro pour identifier ses besoins, afin d'éviter des achats impulsifs et inutiles.

2 - Faire une liste des objets nécessaires.

On la rédige évidemment avant d'aller faire du shopping. Et on essaye de s'y tenir !

3 - Penser aux alternatives à un nouvel achat.

La récup’, le réemploi permettent de faire des bonnes affaires toute l'année. Les électroménagers ElectroRev sont vendus au tiers du prix neuf, révisés et garantis un an par des magasins travaillant en économie sociale. On peut aussi penser aux donneries, au troc... S'il s'agit de remplacer un appareil cassé, penser d'abord à la réparation, en participant par exemple à un Repair Café.

4 - Faire du repérage pour se donner le temps de réfléchir.

Pendant les soldes, attendre avant d’acheter peut faire rater une occasion. Pour éviter la frustration, s’informer sur les produits disponibles avant que les soldes ne commencent (ou au début de celles-ci) donne le temps de se renseigner et de faire des achats plus réfléchis.

5 - Essayer vêtements et chaussures.

Beaucoup d'articles soldés ne sont ni repris, ni échangés. On évitera de se trouver avec des articles qui ne conviennent finalement pas.

6 - Projeter ses achats dans la vie de tous les jours.

« Quand l'utiliser ? », « À quelle occasion et avec quoi le porter ? », « Est-il facile d'utilisation et d'entretien ? »... Un article très original à -50 % devient vite un achat de trop s'il est relégué au fond de l’armoire.

7 - Privilégier la qualité.

L’important est l’objet que l’on achète, pas d’obtenir la meilleure réduction possible ! Mieux vaut acheter un produit un peu plus cher qui durera longtemps qu’un produit bon marché qui finira vite à la poubelle. Ce sont de bonnes affaires sur le long terme !

8 - Vérifier les labels et les étiquettes.

Sur les vêtements, qu’il s’agisse de jeans, de vêtements de plein air ou autres, les labels identifient des textiles écologiques et équitables. Le site d'achAct permet aussi de vérifier l’engagement des marques concernant le respect des droits des travailleurs. Côté électros, on peut aussi repérer les appareils plus écologiques grâce à leur étiquette et leurs labels. Et Topten.be repère les appareils efficaces et peu énergivores.

9 - Regrouper ses achats en ligne.

Si on fait son shopping sur Internet, préférer patienter un peu plus longtemps et se faire livrer tous ses articles en une livraison. On évite aussi de renvoyer ses colis.

10 - Optimiser ses trajets.

Si on opte pour les soldes en magasin, on peut s’organiser une journée shopping à plusieurs, en famille ou entre amis. Cela permet d’adoucir sa mobilité mais aussi de recevoir un avis sur ses coups de cœur avant d'acheter, et de partager des bons moments.

          Servant Leadership Trumps Politics as Usual   

SEATTLE – Although the outspoken chairman and CEO of coffee giant Starbucks has dabbled in big issues before—his well-intentioned but quickly abandoned “Race Together” initiative had baristas writing racial harmony messages on cups—Howard Schultz is not running for president.

“Despite the encouragement of others, I have no intention of entering the presidential fray,” the chairman and CEO of coffee giant Starbucks said in an op-ed in The New York Times. “I’m not done serving at Starbucks. Although we have built an iconic brand while providing even part-time employees with access to health care, free college education and stock options, there is more we can do as a public company to demonstrate responsible leadership.”

But the fact that Schultz is not running … yet … doesn’t mean he has no opinion on what’s wrong with Washington and how a great leader should operate.

“We cannot afford more false promises, slogans, theatrics and fool’s gold,” he wrote. “Our nation has been profoundly damaged by a lack of civility and courage in Washington, where leaders of both parties have abdicated their responsibility to forge reasonable compromises to expand the economy, rebuild our infrastructure, improve schools, transform entitlement programs and so much more. We have become too desensitized to the horrendous metrics that define today’s America, from student-loan debt to food-stamp dependency to the size of our prison population.”

He continued, “The values of servant leadership—putting others first and leading from the heart—need to emerge from every corner of American life, including the business community.

“While Americans have diverse views in what they want from Washington, I reject the notion that our divided and dysfunctional government is merely a reflection of what the political class calls the red-blue divide. Too many of our political leaders are putting party before country, power before principle and cynicism before civility. The common purpose that created this great nation, which has united us in difficult moments, has gone missing.

“Our country is in desperate need of servant leaders, of men and women willing to kneel and embrace those who are not like them. Everyone seeking the presidency professes great love for our nation. But I ask myself, how can you be a genuine public servant if you belittle your fellow citizens and freeze out people who hold differing views?”

He concluded with a provocative challenge: “Our country deserves a candidate courageous enough to select a member of the other party as a running mate. Our country deserves a president humble enough to see leadership not as an entitlement but as a privilege."

          Speedway Reaches Hess Halfway Mark   

UPDATE: According to data provided by GasBuddy, the current Speedway count is 2,156, while the current Hess count is 645 (see map below for the conversion progress).

FINDLAY, Ohio --Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) has now converted more than half of the 1,250 Hess gas stations and convenience stores it acquired in October 2014 to its Speedway brand, Gary Heminger, president and CEO, said in reporting MPC’s second-quarter 2015 financial results.

It has converted more than 650 of the retail sites to the Speedway brand since the acquisition, said Heminger on the company’s earnings call.

According to data provided by GasBuddy, the current Speedway count is 2,156, while the current Hess count is 645 (see map below for the conversion progress).

Speedway, MPC's retail segment, performed well and continues to make tremendous progress integrating the East Coast and Southeast retail locations, he said.

"We are on pace to achieve the expected synergies for 2015 from light-product supply, as well as from operating and administrative expense savings. Further, the accelerated progress for store conversions and subsequent remodels has allowed us to more rapidly implement Speedway's industry-leading Speedy Rewards loyalty program. This program and other marketing enhancements are expected to drive the anticipated synergies to the business over the next several years."

Tony Kenney, president of Speedway, said. “We're moving along at an accelerated pace in converting the [Hess] brand to Speedway. … The important thing there is it's more than just the brand. What's going inside the store is all of our technology that is the platform for our marketing programs, primarily our loyalty program, all of our inventory management, other things that drive savings and synergies for us as we operate convenience stores. … As we begin to bring on all of the marketing enhancements through the conversions inside the store, then we'll start to realize those benefits down the road.”

Speedway segment income from operations was $127 million in second-quarter 2015, compared with $94 million in second-quarter 2014. This increase was primarily the result of higher merchandise and light-product margins and the addition of the newly acquired locations, partially offset by higher operating and administrative expenses. Speedway's consolidated light-product margin increased to 13.51 cents per gallon in second-quarter 2015, from 12.82 cents per gallon in second-quarter 2014.

Speedway's income from operations was $33 million higher in the quarter as compared to second-quarter 2014. Speedway's newly acquired locations contributed income of approximately $14 million to the quarter's results or approximately $45 million of EBITDA.

For the legacy Speedway sites, the merchandise gross margin was $23 million higher in second-quarter 2015 compared to the same quarter last year, and the light-product gross margin was about $16 million higher.

Speedway same-store gasoline sales volume was down two-tenths of a percent versus same quarter last year compared to estimates of U.S. demand growth in the second quarter of approximately 3% higher. Overall, gasoline sales volumes for legacy Speedway locations were up 3% in the quarter, reflecting the impact of investments in new, rebuild and remodel locations.

“Another key performance metric for our retail group is same-store merchandise sales,” said Timothy Griffith, CFO, “and we're continuing to see strong demand for our in-store offering as our same-store merchandise sales in the quarter excluding cigarettes were up 4.6% versus same quarter last year. So far in July, we've seen a 1.6% increase in same-store gasoline volumes compared to last July.”

MPC is the nation's fourth-largest refiner. Approximately 5,460 independently owned gas stations across 19 states sell the Marathon-brand. In addition, Speedway owns and operates the nation's second-largest convenience-store chain, with approximately 2,750 convenience stores in 22 states. MPC also owns, leases or has ownership interests in approximately 8,300 miles of pipeline. Through subsidiaries, MPC owns the general partner of MPLX LP, a midstream master limited partnership (MLP). MPC's fully integrated system provides operational flexibility to move crude oil, feedstocks and petroleum-related products efficiently through the company's distribution network in the Midwest, Southeast and Gulf Coast regions.

Early in the morning of the 26th April 1940, four members of KG 4 took off in their Heinkel He111 P-2 5J+CN from Fernebu, Oslo in Norway. One of three Heinkels tasked with attacking the town of Andalsnes, the bomber was damaged by the guns of HMS Manchester. Unable to keep formation with the other Heinkels the crew were then taken by surprise by two Blackburn Skuas of No. 801 Squadron FAA from HMS Ark Royal. The pilot of Skua A7-A unleashed a hail of machine gun fire on the bomber - killing flight engineer Willi Stock. With one engine failing and the other on fire, pilot Richard Gumbrecht had no choice but to force-land somewhere among the snow covered mountains below. With Stock dead, the remaining three crew members escaped the wreckage and made their way down the mountain. The largely intact Heinkel sat on the mountain for over 30 years, before being recovered and restored by the Norwegian Armed Forces Aircraft Collection.

New for 2015, using our new 3D scanning technology, comes the amazing 1:72 Heinkel HEIII P2! Responsible for more damage from strategic bombing than any other aircraft during the Battle of Britain, this super high detailed aircraft has been designed with information never before used in Airfix model design and has produced fantastic results! ??A wolf in sheep??s clothing??, this formidably fast medium bomber was at first masqueraded by the Luftwaffe as a commercial aircraft, when the intention was in fact for it to be converted into the enemy??s primary bomber during early stages of World War Two.

          The Anabolic Evolution of Modern Bodybuilding   

Since the early days of physical culture, modern man has been searching for the elusive ''Fountain of Youth''. The promise of radiant health, enduring strength and a Herculean physique has drawn millions on this quest for physical perfection.

Through the early decades of bodybuilding, the forefathers of physical culture established basic guidelines for the muscle enthusiast to follow. Natural foods, resistance training, plenty of rest, and a positive outlook in life were the primary ingredients for achieving ones goals. The demand for knowledge on 'how to' reach the stars would result in millions of booklets being sold by mail order, while magazine stands and bookshelves were continually restocked with the latest 'muscle building secrets'. Tons of steel and exercise equipment would find its way into the homes of thousands of Americans all across our nation. Health clubs and iron gyms would sprout up in local neighborhoods and towns, while physique competitions were held to determine whom the best in the land was. The strong roots of physical culture were taking grip in our society, and the mighty oak of bodybuilding would soon branch out through every city in America.

A new 'way of life' became a reality for many as the 'body beautiful' movement swung into high gear. For decades the much traveled road to muscledom kept its promise, then by the mid-60's what seemed pure and natural took a wrong turn setting the course of modern bodybuilding down a dead end. The introduction of anabolic steroids into the sport of bodybuilding would usher in a new era of super sized and equally strong muscular physiques that would attract millions of young men with a desire to achieve the same naturally unattainable goals.

Along with the growth of the sport, the physiques continued to become bigger and more vascular as bodybuilders experimented with 'stacking' the latest in designer muscle enhancing pharmaceuticals. Magazine and ticket sales were at a peak and bodybuilding competitions were seen regularly on network TV. The popularity of the sport was soaring high. Then, what could have been mostly prevented by not promoting and rewarding individuals whose physiques were chemically altered became a reality as the widespread use of drugs in the sport became relevant.

Words such as steroids, cycling, and growth hormones became common place in our gyms, and juicing no longer meant enjoying your favorite health drink. Reports of bodybuilders on dialysis and with heart ailments became a frequent occurrence while the eventual death of several competitive pros hit home hard. What had been a dark cloud in a sport with such great potential turned into a storm that spread its vast shadow on a culture that once shined.

Organizations dedicated to natural bodybuilding and a healthy lifestyle would soon respond to the call for a return to the ideals set forth by the forefathers of physical culture. Physique promoters throughout the land created natural bodybuilding competitions so athletes could compete on a level playing field without running the risk of ruining their health. Publications featuring natural bodybuilders began to spread the gospel of healthy living through proper nutrition and exercise. The televised media developed new bodybuilding and fitness programs to inspire future generations of natural iron pumpers. And as the age of cyber space came upon us, the Internet became a resource of concepts and opinions for bodybuilders to learn and express their views with other physique artist throughout the World. The new millennium is here and those dedicated to physical culture have begun to prevail as the radiant beacon of light from the torch of natural living begins to shine through the storm.

          Dollar falls but bond yields up    
The euro rose yesterday alongside sterling and bond yields as a slew of hawkish comments from central banks signalled the era of ultra-loose monetary policy is ready to sunset across the Atlantic. The dollar index touched its lowest since October as investors shifted to the view that the US Federal Reserve might not be the only game in town when it comes to higher interest rates. With the Fed green-lighting dividends and buybacks in major banks as part of another round of stress tests, financial stocks rose but not enough to offset declines in technology and interest-rate sensitive sectors. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 141.81 points, or 0.66 per cent, to 21,312.8, the S&P 500 lost 19.3 points, or 0.79 per cent, to 2,421.39 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 92.96 points, or 1.49 per cent, to 6,141.46.

          Nokia – IP networks re-imagined   
Recently we have seen Cisco predict that busy hour global IP traffic will grow 4.6-fold (35% CAGR) from 2016 to 2021, reaching 4.3 Pb/s by 2021, compared to average Internet traffic that will grow 3.2-fold (26% CAGR) over the same period to reach 717 Tb/s by 2021. The latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, released earlier this week, calculates that the total traffic in mobile networks increased by 70% between the end of Q1 2016 and the end of Q1 2017. And now, Nokia Bell Labs has just announced its own prediction: IP traffic will more than double in the next five years, reaching 330 exabytes per month by 2022 while growing at a 25% CAGR. The company anticipates that peak data rates will grow even faster at nearly 40% annually. Nokia Bell Labs also predicts that 3D/4K/UHD will experience a 4.79x growth from 2017 – 22, that wireless traffic will experience 7.5x growth from 2017 – 22, and that worldwide IoT devices to grow from 12bn in 2017 to 100bn in 2025.

Nokia unveils next gen networking processing engine

Nokia's processing engine sets the stage for perhaps the most significant announcement from the company since the merger of Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks in 2015. In a press event entitled 'IP networks reimagined', Nokia unveiled its FP4 silicon, featuring the 'first' 2.4 Tbit/s network processor, up to 6x more powerful than processors currently available. The proprietary chipset is designed for a new class of petabit-class routers.

Core routers traditionally have been the 'big iron' that powers the heart of the Internet. It is a product category dominated by Cisco, Huawei, Juniper and Nokia, including via its existing 7950 XRS routing platform. However, the market has been in flux. Earlier this month, Dell’Oro Group reported a significant break in Q1 17 with Huawei taking the top spot from Cisco in the core router market for the first time. The report also found Huawei taking over second spot from Nokia in the SP edge router and CES market. The primary reason cited for this shift is that the SP core routing business is only growing at a low single-digit rate, while China Mobile is defying the trend with significant investments in their IP core backbone, for which Huawei is the lead supplier. Nevertheless, the overall predictions for rapid growth in IP traffic over the coming five years makes it more likely that service providers will need a significant refresh of their core backbones to handle hundreds of 100 or 400 Gbit/s connections at major nodes.

Nokia's previous generation FP3 chipset, unveiled by Alcatel-Lucent in June 2011 and launched in 2012, packed 288 RISC cores operating at 1 GHz and leveraged 40 nm process technology; the FP2 chipset offered 112 cores at 840 MHz and was built in 90 nm. This network processor lineage can be traced back to TiMetra Networks, a start-up based in Mountain View, California that launched its first carrier-class routing platforms in 2003.

TiMetra, which was headed by Basil Alwan, was acquired by Alcatel-Lucent later in 2003 for approximately $150 million in stock. The product line went on to become the highly successful 7450, 7750 and eventually 7950 carrier platforms - the basis for the IP division at Alcatel-Lucent. Not bad for an idea from a small start-up to grow into the star platform underpinning all of Alcatel-Lucent + Nokia Siemens Networks.

In a launch day webcast, Basil Alwan, now president of Nokia's IP/Optical Networks business group, said we are moving into a new phase of the Internet requiring 'cloud-scale routing'. First, he noted that there is market confusion between Internet-class routers and core data centre switches, which are being used to power the hyperscale infrastructure of the Internet content providers. High-end, data centre spine switches are capable of routing packets at high rates and can handle access control lists (ACLs). Likewise, conventional big iron core routers can switch data flows, and are sometimes deployed in data centres. However, there have been tradeoffs when this role reversal happens. Nokia's new FP4 chipset aims to fix that.

First multi-terabit NPU silicon

Six years have passed since the FP3, or roughly two cycles in the evolution of Moore's Law, so naturally one would expect the new silicon to be smaller, faster and more powerful and efficient. But Alwan said the company took its time to rethink how the packet processing works at the silicon level. To begin with, Nokia redesigned the onboard memory, employing 2.5D and 3D layouts on 16 nm Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology. The single chip contains 22 dies, including memory stacks and control logic. It runs at 2.4 Tbit/s half-duplex, or 6x more capacity than the current generation 400 Gbit/s FP3 chipset. The FP4 will support full terabit IP flows. All conventional routing capabilities are included. Deep classification capabilities include enhanced packet intelligence and control, policy controls, telemetry and security.

The FP4 could be used to provide an in-service upgrade to Nokia's current line of core routers and carrier switches. It will also be used to power a new family of 7750 SR-s series routers designed for single-node, cloud scale density. In terms of specs, the SR-s boasts a 144 Tbit/s configuration supporting port densities of up to 144 future terabit links, 288 x 400 Gbit/s ports, or 1,440 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Absolute capacity could be doubled for a maximum of 288 Tbit/s configuration. It runs the same software as the company's widely-deployed systems. The first 7750 SR-s boxes are already running in Nokia labs and the first commercial shipments are expected in Q4.

Nokia is also introducing a chassis extension option to push its router into petabit territory. Without using the switching shelf concept employed in the multi-chassis designs of its competitors, Nokia is offering the means to integrate up to six of its 7750 SRS-s routers into a single system. This results in 576 Tbit/s of capacity, enough for densities of up to 2,880 x 100 GBE ports or 720 x 400 Gbit/s ports. Adding up the numbers, it is not truly petabit-class, but at 576 Tbit/s it is more than halfway there.

Network telemetry leads to security
Another interesting twist concerns security and petabit-class routing. In December 2016, Nokia agreed to acquire Deepfield, a start-up specialising in real-time analytics for IP network performance management and security. Deepfield, founded in 2011 and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has developed an analytics platform that identifies over 30,000 popular cloud applications and services. Its Internet Genome tracks how traffic runs to and through networks to reach subscribers, in real time, and without the need for probes, taps and monitors in the network itself. At the time of the deal, Nokia said it would integrate Deepfield big data analytics with the dynamic control capabilities of open SDN platforms, such as the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) and Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP).

Expanding on this idea, Alwan said Deepfield can really leverage the routers rather than probes to understand what is happening to the traffic. Fewer probes mean lower investment. More importantly, Deepfield could be used to track DDoS attacks passing through the core of the network rather than at the edge destination target. The new FP4 silicon is said to be a very good match for this application.


          CP-TEL rolls out FTTx using Champion GPON   
Champion ONE, an open networking company and supplier of optical transceivers, announced it has partnered with CP-TEL, a communications service provider in Louisiana, to enable the deployment of cost effective FTTx services to its customers.

CP-TEL serves rural residents and businesses in Louisiana's Natchitoches, Sabine, and DeSoto parishes, offering high-speed Internet, digital TV and telephone services.

Champion ONE noted that with increasing demand for FTTP services across parishes in north central Louisiana, CP-TEL was faced with the challenge of turning up new services quickly. However, optical transceivers from its legacy provider proved prohibitively expensive, so the company was seeking a partner that was able to supply a cost-effective solution.

Champion ONE stated that it had previously helped CP-TEL double its fibre utilisation by providing 10 Gbit/s single-fibre, bi-directional SFP+ transceivers to support backhaul traffic. Therefore CP-TEL was confident that Champion ONE optics would be compatible with its OEM equipment.

For the new deployment, Champion ONE supplied high-performance SFP GPON OLT optics at lower cost than other solutions. In addition, due to the significantly lower cost CP-TEL was not only able to turn up new FTTx services quickly, but also stock additional optics as spares to help reduce future downtime.



  • In May, Champion ONE introduced a new line of low-cost open network Ethernet switches offering features including SDN and NFV functionality. The Broadcom-based optical and copper switches offer up to 54 ports, with full L2/L3 line-rate switching at data rates of 1, 10 and 40 Gbit/s initially.

  • Champion ONE noted it has partnered with software vendors including IP Infusion, Pica8 and Cumulus Networks to offer a diverse range of operating systems to meet the requirements of service provider and data centre environments and different network topologies.

          Tips Sebelum Membuat Toko Online   
Terkadang seseorang ingin memiliki toko online hanya ingin mendapatkan tambahan omset yang cepat. Namun, setelah memiliki toko online kurang bisa mengoptimalkan, alhasil toko online pun tidak dapat menghasilkan konversi.

Oleh karena itu, Sebelum Anda memutuskan membuat toko online ada baiknya memperhatikan beberapa hal yang dapat dijadikan referensi berikut ini. Sehingga nantinya toko online Anda akan optimal dan tidak sia-sia setelah memiliki toko online.

1. Siapa Pengelolanya?

Faktor utama macetnya toko online adalah kurangnya pengelolaan toko online tersebut. Tidak adanya SDM yang mengelolanya membuat toko online hanya sebatas pajangan produk semata tanpa memiliki interaksi pengunjung. Alangkah baiknya ketika Anda memutuskan untuk memiliki toko online, Anda sudah memiliki orang yang akan mengelola toko online Anda, sehingga toko online benar-benar optimal.

2. Ketersediaan Produk

Berjualan online harus siap produk entah produk sudah dalam bentuk stock atau sedang berada di suplier (dropship). Dengan memiliki produk yang telah siap untuk dijual maka toko online Anda akan update rutin.

3. Strategi Marketing

Toko online seperti layaknya Kios maupun ruko offline. Tanpa kita mempromosikan maka akan sedikit pengunjung yang datang. Menurut kami, marketing online lebih sulit daripada marketing offline, karena kurangnya interaksi secara langsung antara penjual dan pembeli. Sarana yang digunakan hanyalah sebuah foto produk dan deskripsi produk. Oleh karena itu penting untuk menyiapkan strategi marketing online.

Saat ini banyak ditemui toko online yang tersebar di internet, namun hanya beberapa yang benar-benar dikelola dengan baik. Salah satu faktornya diakibatkan karena tidak adanya pengelola toko online tersebut, sehingga toko online terbiarkan begitu saja. Apabila saat ini Anda ingin membuat toko online, lebih baik konsultasikan dahulu ke jasa pembuatan toko online, apakah juga melayani jasa pemasaran dan layanan lainnya. Kalau di IxoKios.com setiap klien akan dibantu proses pemasarannya, sehingga toko online akan lebih optimal. Selamat Berbisnis Online!

          Blu-Ray Review | "Ugetsu"   
I first encountered Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu when I was a sophomore in college, sometime around 2005. While I had been interested in film for years already, college really helped expand my horizons. I was just beginning to take classes for my film studies minor, and my school library was stocked full of Criterion DVDs. I was in heaven.

I was unfamiliar with Mizoguchi at that point in my life. I had no knowledge of his silent films, or early social dramas like Sisters of the Gion and Osaka Elegy (something I have remedied in subsequent years). But Ugetsu was one of those rare films that immediately became one of my all-time favorites. I was in awe of Mizoguchi's craft, and it made me hungry for more.

Ugetsu came at the peak of Mizoguchi's career - he won the Golden Lion three years in a row for The Life of Oharu (1952), Ugetsu (1953), and Sansho the Bailiff (1954), a trio of masterpieces that showcase a consummate artist at the height of his powers. For this reviewer, however, Mizoguchi never topped Ugetsu, a haunting, supernatural love story that is as beautiful as it is tragic.


The film is a combination of Japanese ghost stories, one about an aspiring samurai who forsakes his family to pursue his dream, leaving his wife to take up prostitution to make ends meet. The other is a potter fleeing war with his family, who is seduced by a mysterious noble woman who turns out to be a ghost. Released eight years after the end of WWII, Ugetsu is as much a cautionary tale as it is a medieval legend.  Weary and plagued by war, these peasants give in to lust and greed, seeking a better life but ultimately waylaid by their own desires. Mizoguchi explores their fate through mesmerizing long takes and a quiet, eerie atmosphere, awash in fog and foreboding. Pay close attention to where he places his camera - unblinking, never judging, but always displaying a deep compassion for its characters humanity. The first time I saw Ugetsu, I wept profusely. Yet even in its tragedy, Mizoguchi finds a strange and otherworldly beauty.  Its use of the supernatural almost feels more metaphorical than literal - representing a man always chasing dreams rather than paying attention to what is right in front of him.

Ugetsu is a masterpiece. Not just one of the finest examples of Japanese cinema, but one of the all time classics. Mizoguchi's craftsmanship remains unparalleled, providing a deep and powerful exploration of human folly that achieves an almost mystical status. Like watching an ancient folktale being born right before our eyes, it remains one of cinema's most uniquely beautiful experiences. The long-awaited Criterion Blu-Ray adds no special features to the original 2005 DVD, but the new 4K restoration is absolutely breathtaking, and worth the upgrade for any fan of the film or the filmmaker. While Criterion has faithfully released Blu-Ray editions of Sansho, Oharu, and The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum, in recent years, the arrival of an HD transfer of his greatest work is cause for celebration.

GRADE - ★★★★ (out of four)

Special features include:

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray 
  • Audio commentary by critic, filmmaker, and festival programmer Tony Rayns

          Bridging the Mind-Body Gap in Health Care   
(Photo: Shutterstock)

After the birth of her youngest son nearly 20 years ago, Elay Nantz of Colorado developed carpal tunnel syndrome in her right hand, sank into post-partum depression, and attempted suicide. After a three-month stay at a Colorado psychiatric hospital, she endured a carousel of specialists who only wanted to know “What do you want?” or “What do you need?” and then wrote countless prescriptions. If she stood her ground and said the pills weren’t working, they would refer her to another doctor. Two of her four psychiatrists even fell asleep during her counseling sessions. Eventually, she stopped seeking treatment.

Nantz has struggled with depression for most of her life and has bounced in and out of doctors’ offices. She felt that the mental health system just saw her as a wallet to rifle through. “None of them gave a crap about me,” she says.

After she had surgery on her hand in 2009 and began physical therapy, her health improved. But after Nantz got divorced in 2010, she lost her private insurance and went on Medicaid—which her physical therapist did not accept. Her hand grew weak and shook so much that she could not hold a fork. It would tumble to the ground and stay there until one of her three children picked it up. A bad day would lead to deeper depression. She felt worthless.

The combination of depression and carpal tunnel meant she could not work and provide for her children. Her thoughts turned to suicide again: “I felt like the only exit I could see was me dying—my head was a mess—like I was in a cave and I couldn’t get out,” she told The American Prospect. “I was getting ready to kill myself.”

Nantz believed that the health-care system simply viewed her as a depressed woman with shaky hands rather than a 45-year-old mother of three who wanted to work and care for her family. But after running out of other options, she decided to try counseling one more time. In 2015, she met Dr. Yaira Oquendo-Figueroa, a staff psychologist at a Salud Family Health Center in Denver.  

Oquendo-Figueroa took an “integrated care” approach to Nantz’s problems that focused on breaking through the institutional barriers that separate mental and physical health care.  In integrated care settings, behavioral health specialists work together with primary-care doctors to treat individual patients. An ongoing relationship between physicians and a patient is the basis of primary care, and it provides a pathway for coordinating mental health treatment.

Oquendo-Figueroa listened carefully to Nantz’s problems and helped her develop the mental “tools” to steer her thoughts in a positive direction. She also connected her with an acupuncturist to treat her carpal tunnel. “She changed my life and the perception of everything,” Nantz says of Oquendo-Figueroa. “I think she’s a magician.”

Mental and physical care have long occupied distinct silos in the American health-care system. However, if Congress has its way, the treatment gulf between these two areas could become even wider, particularly for poor and low-income people who rely Medicaid, the largest health insurer in the United States.

Medical professionals like Oquendo-Figueroa have redoubled their efforts to offer a program of treatment that addresses psychological issues and physical ailments in tandem—which can go a long way to helping patients like Nantz. “You can’t separate the head from the body,” the doctor says.

Primary-care physicians see the majority of patients with mental health problems in the United States, but they are not trained to provide specialized treatment for mental illnesses. According to Benjamin Miller, a University of Colorado’s School of Medicine psychologist who specializes in linking mental and physical care, fewer than 4 percent of primary-care physicians accurately screen for depression. There has been little change in the percentage of adults who use mental health services, or who report an unmet need for mental health services. Two-thirds of doctors say that they can’t get their patients access to outpatient mental treatment because of a shortage of workers, lack of coverage, or inadequate coverage.

Meanwhile, suicide rates in America have risen by nearly 25 percent over the past 15 years and, of the 20 percent of Americans who suffer from mental illness, only about one-fifth get treatment. “The U.S. health-care system [has] two cultures of care that isolate the mind from the body, and mental health has fallen victim to that,” says Miller.

In the 1970s, Salud Family Health Center opened in northeast Colorado to serve patients who were historically underserved or completely uninsured, like the state’s migrant farm workers. In 2013, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recognized Salud as a “patient-centered medical home,” a health-care delivery model that promotes strategies like integrated care. This model upends the traditional health-care system by providing mental health care in primary-care settings, where it is most accessible.

For many people, primary-care clinics and doctors’ offices are a safe haven. “People want an [ongoing] relationship with someone, they want to feel connected [and] to know you’re they’re for them,” Miller says. He believes that nurturing these relationships provides patients with an avenue to discuss and manage mental health issues before they become serious.

The Colorado health center includes a mobile legal team that advocates for patients, especially undocumented immigrants or Medicaid recipients who live paycheck to paycheck. The center also sends behavioral health professionals around the clinic to meet patients in other departments. “Let’s say that a patient is coming for a dental cleaning, and the hygienist concludes that the patient may be anxious or depressed,” says Oquendo-Figueroa. “I go there and do a consult right there in the dental area.”

While that practice may seem invasive to people who have health-care plans that cover behavioral therapy, a dental clinic might be the only time that some Medicaid or Medicare recipients can talk to a mental health professional.

Washington State’s Mental Health Integration Project features telepsychiatry to help treat low-income patients on Medicaid and Medicare. Encouraging patients to stay in touch with care managers and consulting psychiatrists over the phone allows those health centers to reach more people, and not just during regular visits.

Anne Shields, the associate director of the University of Washington’s Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions program sees e-medicine as one possible solution to a shrinking, aging workforce of psychiatrists, especially in rural areas of the country where there were never many specialists to begin with. From 1995 to 2014, while the total number of physicians in the United States grew by 45 percent, the number of psychiatrists only increased by 12 percent. In 2010, 59 percent of psychiatrists in the United States were 54 years old or older. “Primary-care settings are very diverse, small practices,” Shields says. “Rural health centers have no more than three people working and they’re not going to be able to hire a behavioral health-care manager.”

While health-care staffing often determines the number and types of services a hospital provides, integrated care relies on coordination between doctors to identify the specific treatments that will work for an individual patient. Using this approach, a small rural health center can strive to provide the same high-quality integrated care that an urban hospital system does.

Yet despite the health benefits that integrated care provides, the American health-care system continues to rely on traditional strategies. Treating mental and physical conditions separately has not only prevented vulnerable populations from accessing treatment, but it has also driven up those costs. Miller has calculated that, on average, physical conditions cost twice as much per person per month to treat when there is a mental illness present as well.

Moreover, mental health crises often play out in emergency rooms, which are the least efficient and most expensive care locations. Integrated care has reduced the patients’ reliance on emergency room treatment by focusing on preventative services, and targeting mild or moderate symptoms before they become severe.

The Cherokee Health System in Tennessee found that integrated care patients used emergency services 68 percent less than the regional average; specialty care 42 percent less; and hospital care 37 percent less. These savings amounted to a 22 percent discrepancy between CHS’s total cost and the regional average.

Most health-care networks prioritize people with serious mental illnesses over patients with mild or moderate symptoms, which prevents people from getting the help they need earlier. “The bulk of mental health services are in the public system, but people can’t get those services until they have had many crises,” says Debbie Plotnick, a vice president of Mental Health America, one the nation’s leading mental health advocacy groups.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress could tear wide open the existing gap between having insurance that covers mental health treatment and having access to that treatment with their plans to undo the Affordable Care Act. The ACA repeal proposals fail the two-step process Miller of the University of Colorado uses to evaluate potential reforms: “Does this continue to further fragment our experience with health?” he says. “And does this limit my patient’s ability to get access to mental health treatment where they want it?”

Moreover, transforming Medicaid into a block grant program means that mental health programs would take a significant hit as state officials search for savings to offset the federal cuts. Miller believes that integrated care programs would be the first to go, forcing medical professionals to make difficult decisions about whether they can marshal the resources to help people like Nantz. Repealing the ACA would simply take programs designed to bridge the gap between mental and physical illnesses backward—states, Miller says, “can’t take a chance on this right now.” 


          GAME blames deep-rooted financial issues on Nintendo's lack of Switch stock   

UK retailer GAME has warned investors to expect another dismal set of financial results, after previously pinning hopes on the launch of Nintendo Switch to save its 12-month totals.

GAME now expects its profit for the year to be "substantially below previous expectations" (thanks, GamesIndustry.biz).

The reason? GAME has blamed Nintendo for not manufacturing enough stock but then went on to blame the chains "continued softness" in its "core Xbox and PlayStation markets".

          1975-1979 MG Midget Steering Wheel Correct Installation (4 replies)   
The MG Midget has too large a steering wheel blocking part of the view thru windshield.and definitely too close to the driver. Smaller aftermarket steering wheels are available, but the hub adapter places the steering wheel even closer to the driver. The solution is to remove the hub from the original steering wheel. It is spot welded and is easy to cut off with a band saw. Next, simply weld a round disc to hub with center of disc cut out for the bolt. If you cannot do this a machine shop will perform it for you. Unlike some or all hub adapters, the turn signals will cancel after a turn with original hub.

I bought a 13.5" steering wheel with a 1.5" dish from ebay for $59. I simply placed the steering wheel 180 degrees around for a negative dish. The steering wheel now is over 3" further away from the driver vs the stock position. The top of the steering wheel is now same level as windshield washer arm looking thru the windshield. The view thru the windshield is now unblocked making a more pleasurable car to drive. I bent back the turning signal & wiper stalk using a T&B terminal crimp tool. The tool has a 1/4" grip on the stalk to prevent the stalk from kinking. I finally added a $5 MG emblem on the horn button from ebay. Three inches does not seem like much, but really makes a large difference for a more comfortable driving position. And, it is much easier to get in & out of the car. See pictures.

          How To Work Your Beauty Routine Into Your Busy Schedule   

Honestly, sometimes we all look at women who are perfectly polished and think ‘where do they find the time’, but the truth is there are some cheat-sheet ways to save time on your beauty routine and look a million bucks without spending all day primping.

Making an appointment and heading off to the beautician every time you need to get rid of hair takes time (and forward planning). Why not try an at-home treatment like Andrea Roll On Hair Remover or Andrea Gentle Cream Bleach for Face?

Want to look flawless but don't have time to do a full-face of makeup in the mirror? Make a statement with your eyes by popping on some false lashes. We recommend the Ardell Individual Lashes - they're an instant pick-me-up for tired eyes and the extra glam and volume means you can forgo the eyeshadow. And when you get home, use Ardell Lash Free Remover to get them off quickly and without fuss.

You really don’t need to book in for a professional spray tan these days either, given there are so many good at-home options on the market. We love the idea of Bondi Sands Gradual Tanning Milk, which has an SPF 15 and, because it's gradual, you can use it daily to build up a colour that looks super natural.

Don’t spend hours searching for brow hairs to pluck in low light. Use La Tweez Pro Illuminating Tweezer and you’ll find them in a flash and have perfectly shaped brows.

Find products that work hard. Anything that’s 2-in-1 or more is a bonus, right? We love Sun Bum 3 in 1 Leave in Treatment for hair. Then there are those anti-ageing products that work while you wear or even while you’re sleeping (bonus). One of our favourites is Transformulas Face Contour and Tightening Crème.

Okay, so it is not possible to have a time-saving beauty list without the mother of all beauty time-savers…. dry shampoo! Polished London is by far the best on the market (which is why we stock it – duh) and perfect to push that blow dry out for just one more day when you’re under the pump.

          Woodstock e la grande stagione dei festival rock   
Woodstock, con i suoi cinquecentomila partecipanti, fu il primo, grande, leggendario concerto della storia del rock, ma fu anche molto di più. La realizzazione del sogno hippy, la celebrazione della controcultura, la “culla” di un intera generazione di musicisti rock, la nascita di una “nazione” giovanile. Ci furono molte altre “Woodstock” che meritano di essere ricordate, dal Festival di Monterey nel 1967 a Wight nel 1970, appuntamenti che segnarono lo sviluppo del rock e videro la nascita di molte star, come ricorderanno Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo nell’appuntamento settimanale con “Lezioni di Rock”.
          Who - Who’s Next    
Era il 1971, il rock aveva esaurito la sua carica propulsiva, il sogno di Woodstock era andato in frantumi, la guerra del Vietnam continuava, il “movement” era sotto lo scacco di una forte repressione. Pete Townshend pensa che non tutto sia perduto e che il rock possa ancora salvare il mondo. Da questa speranza nasce “Who’s next”, il capolavoro degli Who, uno dei più grandi dischi della storia del rock, un capolavoro assoluto dove passione e note diventano un tutt’uno.

Un disco dal vivo. Forse “il” disco live per eccellenza. Perché ripropone non un concerto qualsiasi ma l’Evento Massimo della storia del rock, il festival che ha segnato il punto più alto dell’esplosione della cultura giovanile degli anni Sessanta, i leggendari “tre giorni di pace, amore e musica”, quelli che si svolsero a Bethel nel bel mezzo del mese di Agosto del 1969, il Festival di Woodstock. Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo vi accompagneranno in una straordinaria rievocazione, in un viaggio nel tempo, nel cuore della “hippy nation”, nel più grande sogno realizzato della storia del rock, tra le note di Jimi Hendrix e Carlos Santana, di Joe Cocker e dei Jefferson Airplane, di Crosby Stills & Nash e di Joan Baez, degli Who e dei Ten Years After, per “due ore di pace, amore e musica”.

“Speciale Woodstock” chiude la quarta stagione di Lezioni di Rock, la rassegna a cura di Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo, che racconta attraverso filmati, aneddoti e curiosità i grandi momenti della popular music, le incisioni indimenticabili, le storie dei personaggi che hanno segnato l’evoluzione della musica popolare nel secolo scorso. Un evento speciale, durante il quale Assante e Castaldo, autori del libro in uscita “Il tempo di Woodstock” (Laterza), faranno rivivere, a quaranta anni di distanza, insieme a ospiti importanti e attraverso testimonianze, filmati e ascolti, la più grande kermesse della storia della musica. Il 30 giugno 2009 nessun concerto dal vivo nella cavea, ma una festosa celebrazione in piena regola, durante la quale si potranno rivedere le più suggestive immagini live della maratona musicale del 1969, ascoltare i racconti di chi c’era e di chi avrebbe voluto esserci, ricostruire la storia e rivivere l’emozione di quel momento collettivo che ha rivoluzionato la storia della musica dal vivo e del costume.

          Oxfam welcomes independent process to address community grievances in Uganda land dispute   

Oxfam has welcomed the announcement of an independent process to resolve complaints from communities who were evicted from their land without compensation to make way for two forestry plantations in Uganda.

The Office of the Compliance Adviser/Ombudsman (CAO) handles complaints from communities affected by investments made by the World Bank’s private sector arm, the International Finance Corporation (IFC). It has confirmed that it will launch an independent process to find a resolution to the dispute involving the UK’s New Forests Company (NFC). The IFC has invested in an agribusiness fund, Agri-Vie, which has an equity stake in and seat on the board of NFC.

Oxfam has been calling for an independent investigation since September when it published its research into the evictions in Mubende and Kiboga districts, based on extensive consultations with hundreds of individuals from the affected communities. The CAO has accepted the eligibility of the complaints that were filed by Ugandan communities and co-signed by Oxfam and the Uganda Land Alliance. This is the first step in a process which Oxfam believes could secure redress for the communities, who have lost their homes and the land they relied on for their livelihoods.

The CAO process aims to find a negotiated resolution between the complainants, the company and any others relevant to the process. NFC has already confirmed that it will participate in this process.

Oxfam Chief Executive Barbara Stocking said: “This is an important step towards giving a voice to the thousands of people left destitute. We hope it will lead to securing the redress they deserve.

“We welcome New Forests Company’s commitment to participate in this process and look forward to finding a resolution as soon as possible.”

Oxfam’s focus on this case is part of the international agency’s GROW campaign, which aims to secure a future for everyone to have enough to eat. Oxfam is concerned about the accelerated rush for land, especially in Africa, and the lack of effective international rules to protect the poorest people who depend on the land for food.

In the next stage of the CAO process, up to six months will be spent on clarifying the issues and concerns raised by the complainants and gathering information on how others involved see the situation. This will help the CAO and all relevant parties to determine whether and how they might be able to resolve the issues. The CAO will then publish a report containing its assessment of the situation, which will describe the proposed course of action that has been agreed by all.

          New Forests Company company must address safety concerns of Uganda land grab community   

Oxfam is launching a campaign calling for the New Forests Company to respond to concerns that have been raised for the safety of people who were evicted to make way for the British company’s forestry plantations in Uganda.

Oxfam has felt obliged to go public with its concerns following reports that the affected communities in Mubende and Kibogo districts are feeling harassed and intimidated by NFC staff.

Oxfam published a report on 22nd September on international land grabs that included a Ugandan case study detailing  how at least 22,500 people were evicted – some violently and all without compensation to make way for the NFC plantation.

Since publication, the international aid agency has received reports that individuals who have spoken to media about their evictions have been approached by NFC staff for questioning. Community members have also been asked to take company staff to the sites of violent evictions. One man has reported that NFC staff took his cattle and only returned the livestock when he paid for their return, although he has since been refunded by the company.

New Forests Company has previously announced it will launch an independent investigation into Oxfam’s allegations yet these actions by company workers undermine confidence in NFC's commitment and ability to do so. Oxfam is calling for the investigation to be led by an independent chairperson, who has the power to select the investigatory body and who can ensure that the input and protection of the communities is guaranteed in the process.

Oxfam GB’s Chief Executive Barbara Stocking said: “Many people in these communities are clearly feeling intimidated by the actions of NFC, which are totally at odds with the principles of an independent and transparent investigation. They have already lost their homes and land and many have been subjected to violent behaviour. They need a credible investigation not further pressure.

“NFC must show that they are serious about the allegations that have been made by setting up a truly independent investigation.”

Uganda land case update, 8 July 2013

In September 2011, Oxfam profiled a land deal in Uganda in which villagers were being evicted to make way for timber plantations. Read an update about the case.

          The New Forests Company and its Uganda plantations: Oxfam Case Study   

London-based New Forests Company (NFC) would seem to be the design blueprint of how a young modern company should conduct a major land investment in Africa in a responsible way. Oxfam’s investigations reveal, however, that serious allegations by people who were evicted from land to make way for NFC’s operations remain unresolved. How will the company respond?

Today, the people evicted from the land are desperate, having been driven into poverty and landlessness. In some instances they say they were subjected to violence and their property, crops, and livestock destroyed. They say they were not properly consulted, have been offered no adequate compensation, and have received no alternative land.

Oxfam believes that the affected communities in Kiboga and Mubende deserve to have their case heard and to see justice done.

In Oxfam’s view, NFC and its financial backers must be held to account for the lost
livelihoods and shattered lives of families evicted from the land they farmed. Oxfam is
calling on NFC and its investors to:

  • Hold a full investigation into the events in Kiboga and Mubende, and make the terms of reference for the investigation and its findings, public;
  • Commit to a transparent and accountable process to provide justice for the affected communities and, in consultation with affected communities and local and national authorities, ensure the provision of alternative land and compensation for lost homes, crops, livestock, and livelihoods;
  • Provide damages for any abuses found to have been suffered by affected communities; 
  • Where failures are found, commit to reform their policies, standards, and procedures, so that such abuses can never happen again.

          Eight Simple Ways to Enhance Your Car’s Music Experience   

There is never a need to put up with terrible sound quality as you cruise down the road. A handful of minor tweaks can give your tweeters something to sing about. If you are dealing with treble trouble or bad bass, then the following are eight simple ways to pump up the jams that you will want to take note of: 1. Upgrade Your Speakers Stock factory paper speakers and low-quality installations will leave your listening experience flat on the dash. If you want good sound, spring for a decent set of speakers, you’ll be glad you did! 2. Insulate Your Doors Insulating your doors with sound-deadening material by HushMat will reduce vibration and distortion, boost the quality of your car audio installation, and improve your overall sound quality. This is often overlooked, and can make a big difference in the listening experience. 3. Amp It Up More power equals more sound. If you like to crank it up, then you have to give your speakers the juice they need to deliver the clean sound you desire. A well-built amp is just what the audio engineer ordered for top-quality sound. Did you know most speakers blow out due to too little power? This causes the speaker to work harder than designed, heat up faster, and significantly shortens speaker life. Give ‘em the power they need, and they’ll give you years of great sound! 4. Equalize the System Every car is different, and sound will react differently depending on the layout and materials within the interior. An equalizer makes it possible to adjust the sound coming from each speaker for maximum performance. 5. Seal in the Subwoofer Air leaking from around the subwoofer can dilute the sound, resulting in less volume. A well-sealed subwoofer helps contain the sound and direct it best acoustically into the listening environment. 6. Upgrade the Receiver A solid receiver is essential for receiving clear radio signals, smooth CD spins and clear MP3 playback. You will want to select a receiver that has the USB ports and the extras you need to connect your devices to your car audio system. Today’s most popular features like Bluetooth and CarPlay are available in many models in all different price ranges. 7. Splurge on Wire One of the most important elements of audio installation is often ignored. High-quality speaker wire is essential for high-quality sound. You will want to choose wire gauges that are matched to your speakers and their position within the vehicle. 8. Put in a Capacitor Not a flux capacitor unless you plan to go back in time. A simple capacitor will be more than enough to keep the power flowing from the battery to the amp and through your speakers, and keep lights from dimming as well as reducing strain on your vehicles charging system.       Audio Express Are you wondering “Where can I get car audio near me? The answer is Audio Express because we have plenty of stores located throughout the region. We will be happy to listen to your needs and recommend the solutions that will deliver the listening experience you desire. We can help you enjoy concert-quality sound if you love to cruise to Chopin, jam with some jazz or put the pedal to the Metallica.

          Java Magazine Edition about Libraries    

By Guest Blogger Andrew Binstock 

In an age of frameworks, there still remains a supreme need for libraries, those useful collections of classes and methods that save us a huge amount of work. For all the words spilled on the reusability of object orientation (OO), it’s clear that code reuse has been consistently successful only at the library level. It’s hard to say whether that’s a failure of the promises of OO or whether those promises were unlikely to ever deliver the hoped-for reusability. 

In Stephen Colebourne’s article (page 28), he gives best practices for writing libraries of your own. Colebourne is the author of the celebrated Joda-Time library, which was the standard non-JDK time and date library prior to Java SE 8. In the article, he gives best practices for architecting the library and shares guidelines he has learned along the way that sometimes fly in the face of generally accepted programming precepts. Writing your own library? Then start here

We also examine three well-designed libraries that provide useful functionality but might not be widely known. The first of these is Project Lombok (page 10), which uses annotations to greatly reduce the writing of boilerplate code—leading to fewer keystrokes and much more readable code. Andrés Almiray’s article on the JDeferred library (page 16) is a deep dive into the concepts of futures and promises, which are techniques for defining, invoking, and getting results from asynchronous operations. The built-in Java classes for futures and promises work well but can be difficult to program. JDeferred removes the difficulty and, like Lombok, leads to considerably cleaner code. 

Finally, we revisit an article we ran a year ago on jsoup (page 22), which is one of the finest ways of handling HTML: parsing, scraping, manipulating, and even generating it. 

If libraries are not your favorite topic, we have you covered with a detailed discussion (page 34) of how to use streaming syntax rather than SQL when accessing databases. In addition, we offer our usual quiz (this time with the inclusion of questions from the entry-level exam), our calendar of events, and other goodness. (Note that our next issue will be a jumbo special issue on Java 9.)

          New Java Magazine Edition about UI Tools    

From Chief Editor of Java Magazine Andrew Binstock

Coding UIs used to be an awful chore, with endless minute adjustments having to be constantly recorded. Fortunately, JavaFX greatly facilitated UI construction by scripting it with FXML, which is discussed in our first article. Our second article explores the drag-and-drop design tool, Scene Builder, which can generate FXML. Scene Builder was originally an Oracle tool that was released to open source and taken over by Gluon, which has been maintaining it ever since.

Front ends to web applications have their own unique needs, and we cover those too in a pair of articles: one on MVC 1.0, a web framework that at one time was considered for inclusion in Java EE 8, and another on a JavaScript toolkit, Oracle JET, which provides among many resources a large palette of useful controls with easy ways to wire them together.

If UIs are not your favorite topic, we have other subjects of interest: a detailed discussion of using MQTT, one the main messaging protocols in IoT. You'll also find an interesting dive into how the up-and-coming build tool Gradle uses libraries. And finally, we revisit a topic we've covered before: Compact Profiles in Java 8. In addition, of course, we offer our usual quiz —this time with the inclusion of questions from the entry-level exam—our review, and other goodness, such as readers' views on whether to include JavaScript in future issues.

          Military disrupting life in Deir Abu Mash’al for 2 weeks, since 3 residents killed Border Police officer   

The Palestinian village of Deir Abu Mash'al lies some 25 kilometers northwest of Ramallah. It has a population of about 5,000, many of whom work in Ramallah. About 150 of the residents work in Israel and have to cross the Ni'lin checkpoint on their commute every day. On the evening of Friday, 16 June 2017, three residents of the village carried out an attack near Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem, killing Border Police Officer Hadas Malka, 23, and wounding four other people. The three assailants, Baraa Saleh, 18, ‘Adel ‘Ankush, 18, and Ousama ‘Ata, 19, were shot to death by Israeli security forces over the course of the attack. Ever since then, Israel has been disrupting the lives of all residents of the village, although they were not involved in the attack and have not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Following the attack, Border Police officers and soldiers entered the village and imposed several restrictive measures. On the night of the attack itself, Israeli security forces installed an iron gate at the main entrance to the village and refused to let anyone cross it in either direction, neither on foot nor by car. The military also blocked off the three dirt roads leading to the village with stones and piles of earth. The next day, village residents removed some of the blockage from two roads, enough to enable only a four-wheel drive to get through. This recurred over the following days, with the military blocking the roads and residents removing the obstacles.

On Monday, 19 June 2017, security forces allowed most of the village residents to leave the village on foot via the main entrance, barring men between the ages of 15 and 25. The next day, the forces opened the gate part of the way, allowing cars through but only after lengthy checks, including searches of the cars. The ban on exit by men aged 15 to 25 remained in place.

It wasn’t until the evening of Saturday, 24 June 2017, when the high holiday of ‘Eid al-Fitr began, that security forces made travel by car easier. Nonetheless, the iron gate remains in place and forces are stationed beside it some of the time, performing random checks.

In addition to the restrictions on movement, which have affected the entire population of the village, security forces confiscated some 50 vehicles from residents for ostensibly lacking licenses. In addition, 50 village residents who work in Israel – all from the assailants’ extended families – had their work permits revoked. The permits were revoked when they reached the checkpoint on their way to work, without prior notice and with no opportunity to challenge the decision.

On Sunday, 18 June, soldiers raided five homes in the village, three of them belonging to the families of the assailants. The soldiers informed the parents of the assailants that their houses for the actions of their sons. If this occurs, 15 people, including 5 innocent minors, will be left without a roof over their heads.

In one home, the soldiers damaged property and left a mess behind them. ‘Adel ‘Ankush’s mother, 46, was arrested on 21 June and is still in custody. On 29 June, forces again entered the village, arresting ‘Ancush’s father and searching Ousamah Ata’s home once again.

When the forces first entered the village, violent altercations erupted between them and local residents, during which two young men from the village were hurt. They were taken to hospital in Ramallah in an ambulance that had to use a bypass dirt road. Three days later, on 19 June, security forces returned to the village at 5:00 A.M. and went into a home to carry out arrests. This also resulted in altercations in which two more local residents were hurt. The clashes ended when the forces left the village at around 8:00 A.M.

For almost two weeks now, ever since the attack, the military has been disrupting the lives of all 5,000 or so residents of the village, although they have been accused of no personal wrongdoing. This automatic form of retaliation has become a matter of policy for the military, in a cynical abuse of its power to mistreat civilians. This kind of collective harm is morally and legally indefensible.

On 21 June 2017, B’Tselem field researcher 'Amer 'Aruri spoke with two village residents who feared to disclose their names, and with another who agreed to be identified.

A village resident who preferred to remain anonymous related:

I’m a merchant, and I have a permit to enter Israel. On Saturday I wasn’t able to leave, but on Sunday, 18 June, I had to get to the bank in Ramallah. I have a regular car that can’t drive on the unpaved farm roads, so I borrowed my brother’s four-wheel drive. It took me about half an hour on the farm road just to get to Deir Nidham, and there I took the main road to Ramallah. The trip took almost an hour. Usually, it takes half an hour at most to get to Ramallah.

On Tuesday, 20 June 2017, I heard that the soldiers had opened the gate and lifted the closure. At around eleven o’clock in the morning, I set out in my car towards the main exit. When I got there, I saw that the soldiers were still there. They opened the iron gate part of the way. Cars were going both ways and the soldiers were checking every single car going in or out, as well as the IDs of the passengers. There was a huge traffic jam at the entrance. 

When it was my turn, the soldier went through my car from top to bottom. He even popped the hood and opened the trunk. He checked my ID and asked me sarcastically if I had an M16 . I said no and drove off.

Another resident said:

I am from the ‘Ata family. I work in construction inside Israel. On Sunday, 18 June 2017, at around four o’clock in the morning, I got to Ni’lin checkpoint after going the long way on a farm road to get out of the village. There were five more laborers with me in the car, four of them from our family. At the checkpoint, they only let the laborer who wasn’t from our family through. They turned the rest of us back. I asked the guard why I wasn’t allowed across, and he said our family was “causing trouble”.

I couldn’t do anything that day, so I went back home. Other laborers from the ‘Ata, ‘Ankush and Saleh families told me that the exact same thing happened to them. 

I have five children and no other source of income. The day I went back home, my employer called me and said that if I didn’t come in to work, he’d fire me. I don’t know what I’ll do if they don’t give me my permit back. ‘Eid al-Fitr is coming up and I don’t think I’ll be able to buy the kids clothes, as is the custom on high holidays. I’m worried that if I don’t go back to work, I’ll need the money to put food on the table. 

Muhammad Faiz Muhammad ‘Ata, a married father of five, said in his testimony:

Damaged property and mess left by soldiers in the 'Ata home. Photo courtesy of the family, 21 June '17

I live in the al-Mu’alaka neighborhood in the village, in  a two-story building. The second story is still under construction. We have a livestock pen next to the house. 

Today, 21 June 2017, at six in the morning, I heard loud banging on the door. I opened it and found myself facing soldiers and an officer. The officer ordered me to lie down on the floor, but I refused. One of the soldiers grabbed me and sat me down on the floor. The other soldiers came in and started searching our home. I got up immediately and followed them. I told them my wife and children were asleep, but it was no use.

The soldiers went into the kitchen and threw the dishes on the floor. The sound of the breaking dishes woke my wife and children. When they saw the soldiers in the house, some of them started crying. Several soldiers went into our bedroom and started throwing our clothes on the floor. They also turned over the couches and the tables in the living room. I asked the officer if they had a search warrant. He said: “They kill Jews and want a search warrant”?

This went on for about an hour. They left a terrible mess all over the house. In the kitchen, they broke dishes and spilled rice. They broke a livestock milking pump that we were keeping on the second story. They turned the living room upside down and left clothes all over the floor in our bedroom. I don’t know what they were looking for and why they came into our house. They refused to tell me.

WHAT MAKES OUR FABRICS SO SPECIAL?

Westfalenstoffe leave their fabrics as untreated as possible making them exceptionally sturdy. Easy-care and wrinkle-resistant treatments are avoided ensuring fabrics maintain their natural stability. As a general rule, synthetic resins are not used.

All our fabrics are Öko-Tex100 certified meaning that toxic substances like allergenic dyes are not used at any stage of processing and so our fabrics present minimal health risks.

All our organic fabrics are guaranteed to meet the internationally recognised Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) meaning that the cotton is from certified organic sources. It also means that no substances considered harmful to health or the environment are used in their production like formaldehyde, azotic dyes or heavy metals.

As well as being free from harmful substances. Westfalenstoffe fabrics exhibit very little shrinkage and textiles are coloured using reactive dye and printing process. In short this is important as dyes permeate the fibres instead of merely resting on the surface as in pigment printing. This ensures a high level of rub fastness while leaving the fabric soft and much more durable.

          Maplin have RF MCE Keyboard with Built-in touchpad for 30 quid (£29.99) - UPDATE BACK IN STOCK as of 2nd April 2009 but now £49.99   

Recently when asked what wireless keyboard I would recommend for Media Center use I have been mentioning the RK-278 MCE Keyboard from Maplin here in the UK. I really like these keyboards they have a good full size keyboard which balances nicely on your lap; a good selection of media center specific keys and most significantly a built-in touchpad. For those of us using Laptops day in day out this is just so much easier to get on with than the joysticks or trackballs that usually inhabit these al in one input devices. So even though they retailed at around 60 quid I thought the extra functionality worthwhile over other cheaper competitors. Now, in time for the holidays, Maplin have dropped the price to just under 30 quid - which is a bargain.

I think this offer is in store only as i can't find the keyboard listed on the website and my local store did not have many left.

They also currently have a rather neat RF based Media Center remote for sub 20 pound as well. CORRECTION: this is actually an infraed remote not RF (I'm sure it said RF on the shelf)

          DO WE LOVE IT: Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" Ft. Jay-Z   

Photobucket

Justin Timberlake is back on his Suit & Tie ish.  He's not letting Robin Thicke be the only blue eyed soul dude in the game right now.  JT has returned to the music game after catering to his movie career for so long.  And we've got his first comeback single, "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z, inside...

Photobucket

“Suit & Tie" featuring JAY Z was written by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Shawn Carter, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy and produced by Timbaland, Justin himself and Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon.

The song is the first release off Timberlake’s forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, due out later this year on RCA Records.

Sounds like the newlywed's still got that sound we loved when he first hooked up with Timbaland years ago.  Decide if we love it.  Then read his open letter his fans below.

An Open Letter to you (the fans):

I hope this gets to you the right way. It's the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I'd rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a little bit of fun with it?

Well... No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I'm having fun with this?? Ha!)

*Makes a serious face*

So, here goes:

This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the "grapevine," I'm gearing up for a big 2013.

Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.

The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn't expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I've had in my career... Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.

What I came up with is something I couldn't be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I've discovered along the way.

I'm calling it "The 20/20 Experience," and it's coming out this year.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

That's all I'm giving you for now... I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!

Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me). 

The song is available on iTunes today.

          Forum Post: RE: Location profile   
My feeling is that I would only use the dimensions on the location profile if all other possibilities did not work. For example; picking locations are often one location per item... often a picking location is assigned to one item. In this case, I will probably be filling the location by replenishment. Therefore, my replenishment Min/Max will take care of ensuring I don't try to overfill the location. If I did decide to try to put a purchase receipt directly into a picking location.... if it is only one item per picking location I can define the Max easily enough by using Location Stocking Limits. For the bulk locations, are you trying to keep it to one item per location (or even one batch per location). If yes, 'Empty location with no incoming work' might suit... always directing you to an empty location. Perhaps you receive on pallets into pallet sized bulk locations, you don't need to worry about over stocking if you always look for an empty location. However, if I was often receiving POs into locations which already have stock.... which contain multiple items of different sizes... then I think if you want AX to suggest put away locations, you could consider using dimensions. Of course, if the warehouse is really chaotic, you don't have to ask AX to suggest a location at all. Simply let the warehouse users find space as they can and tell the hand held where they put it.

          Stocks end mostly higher to book best half-year gains in years   

U.S. stocks closed modestly higher Friday after trimming gains in the last few minutes of trading. But steep losses in technology and health-cares stocks earlier in the week resulted in poor weekly performance for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. The S&P 500 rose 3.71 points, or 0.2%, to 2,423.41, but ended the week 0.6% lower. Over the month, the large-cap index gained 0.5% and advanced by 2.6% over the past quarter. The index is up 8.2% year to date, its best half-year performance since 2013. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 62.60 points, or 0.3%, to 21,349.63, ending the week 0.2% lower. The blue-chip index gained 1.6% over the month, 3.3% over the quarter and 8% over the first half of the year. The Nasdaq Composite index reversed earlier gains to close 3.93 points, or 0.1%, lower at 6,140.42. The tech-heavy index booked a 2% weekly and 0.9% monthly loss after recent selloffs in technology stocks. Among biggest gainers this week, Nike Inc. rallied 11.6%, much of the gains coming on Friday.

          Nasdaq stalls below 'pivotal' chart resistance, increasing risk of further decline    

The Nasdaq Composite was up 0.2% Friday, but was still down 1.7% on the week, which means it has now spent five weeks stalled out below key chart resistance, according ICAP-Technical Analysis's Walter Zimmerman. Based on Elliott Wave counts, he pegs "pivotal resistance" at 6,280, which is 2% above current levels. If the Nasdaq falls below 6,030--2% below current levels--it would open up the downside to 5,840, which Zimmerman says is "must hold support" to preserve the longer-term uptrend. The Nasdaq has now lost 2.6% since the June 8 record close of 6,321.77. Separately, Zimmerman said the Dow Jones Industrial Average has now spent two weeks stalled out below "pivotal resistance" at 21,470.72, which is about 70 points, or 0.4% above current levels.

          Gold prices end the session lower, but tally a gain for the first half of the year    

Gold prices settled with a loss Friday, pressured by gains in global bond yields which dulled investment demand for the metal. Prices, however, scored a gain of roughly 7.9% for the first half of the year, buoyed in part by overall weakness in the U.S. dollar year to date. August gold fell $3.50, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,242.30 an ounce for the session. It lost about 1.1% for the week, and was down around 2.6% for the month.

          AMD's stock slips toward its second 6-session losing streak in June   

Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s stock slipped 0.2% in afternoon trade Friday, putting it in danger of a sixth-straight loss, amid growing worries over competition in the cryptocurrency market. Although this would mark the second six-session losing streak this month--the other ended on June 16--the stock was still up 12.4% in June. The chip maker's monthly gain was supported by two four-session win streaks, one ending June 8 that added 18%, and another ending June 22 that added 26%. On Friday, RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves fueled the competition fears, by saying if AMD faced a crytocurrency battle with Nvidia Corp. , "we think Nvidia would win." Nvidia's stock was up 1.0% in June. Meanwhile the PHLX Semiconductor Index has lost 4.8% and the S&P 500 has tacked on 0.6% this month.

          Baker Hughes data show decline in U.S. oil-rig count for the first time in 24 weeks   

Baker Hughes on Friday reported that the number of active U.S. rigs drilling for oil declined by two to 756 rigs this week. That marked only the second time the weekly oil-rig count fell this year. Oil-rig numbers had climbed for 23 weeks in a row. The total active U.S. rig count, which includes oil and natural-gas rigs, also fell by one to 940, according to Baker Hughes. Oil prices extended their gains following the data, with August West Texas Intermediate crude up 68 cents, or 1.5%, at $45.61 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange for the session. It was trading at $45.50 before the data.

          Wheat prices rally toward a more than 1-year high   

Wheat futures prices were poised Friday for their highest finish in more than a year after the U.S. Department of Agriculture lowered its acreage estimate for U.S. wheat plantings. "Total U.S. wheat planted acres were estimated slightly lower than the March 31 planting intentions and pre-report trade estimates," Steve Kahler, chief operating officer at Teucrium Trading LLC, told MarketWatch. "More importantly, the current 45.7 million acre estimate for U.S. wheat plantings is the lowest area on record since 1919," he said. The drought conditions in the Northern tier states will remain the focus for the market, with "moisture making or breaking this year's spring wheat crop," he said. September wheat was up 21 cents, or 4.2%, at $5.17 a bushel. A settlement around this level would be the highest for most-active contract since June 2016.

          Nike's stock jump gives Dow a big boost, paces S&P 500 gainers   

Nike Inc.'s stock sprinted 8.5% higher Friday morning toward a 3 1/2-month high, pacing the S&P 500 gainers, as it was on track to post the biggest one-day gain since September 2015. The price gain of $4.50 was adding about 32 points to the price of the Dow Jones Industrial Average , which was up 77 points in morning trade. The rally comes after the athletic apparel and accessories maker reported better-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter results, and confirmed a deal to sell its wares through Amazon.com Inc. . The magnitude of the rally was a surprise to options traders, which had priced in a one-day post-earnings move of about 5.1%. Nike's stock has climbed 13% year to date, while the Dow has gained 8.1%.

          Chicago PMI climbs to 65.7 in June, highest since 2014   

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

          Stock market opens higher as Wall Street looks to wrap volatile week in the green   

U.S. stocks on Friday climbed and a selloff in bonds subsided somewhat, as a report on inflation and spending came in weaker than expected. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.5% at 21,371, the S&P 500 index gained 0.4% at 2,429, while the Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 0.3% at 6,165. Friday's moves follow a downdraft for equities in the previous session, underpinned by selling in technology shares , more than offsetting gains in the financial sector . Among corporate news, shares of Nike Inc. climbed and was buoying the Dow, after the sportswear giant late Thursday posted better-than-expected quarterly profit and sales. Meanwhile, government bond-yields looked to stabilize in early trade after spiking throughout the week on investor fears that global central bankers would put an end to easy-money policies, which have supported bond prices and pushed yields to record lows. The 10-year Treasury note was at 2.27% in recent trade. Prices move inversely to yields. On the data front, a consumer report early Friday showed the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge, the price index for personal-consumption expenditures, fell 0.1% in May from the prior month while personal consumption expenditures increased a seasonally adjusted 0.1% in May from the prior month, the Commerce Department said. Friday's action caps a bumpy week for equities and closes out the month, quarter and first half of 2017.

          Cara Therapeutics' stock plunges after mixed trial results prompts analyst downgrade   

Shares of Cara Therapeutics Inc. plunged 27% in premarket trade Friday, after mixed results from a phase 2b trial of the biotechnology company's pain medication prompted a downgrade at Janney Montgomery Scott. Analyst Ken Trbovich cut his rating to neutral from buy, saying the results of the trial weren't strong enough to achieve statistical significance at the highest dose and did not show an effect at lower doses. The result of the trial "gives us less confidence in the outlook for a positive outcome for the phase 3 than we had previously," Trbovich wrote in a note to clients. The stock had nearly tripled year to date through Thursday, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF had rallied 18% and the S&P 500 had gained 8.1%.

          Camping World Holdings to operate Gander Outdoors and Overton's stores after Gander Mountain bankruptcy   

Camping World Holdings Inc. said Friday that it will operate nearly 60 Gander Outdoors and Overton's brand locations that it acquired earlier this year from Gander Mountain, which filed for bankruptcy in March. At that time, Gander Mountain put its 160 stores up for sale. Camping World Inc., a subsidiary of Camping World Holdings, alongside a group of firms, bought the company's assets for about $400 million, The Wall Street Journal reported. Camping World chairman Marcus Lemonis said at the time that the company would keep as many of its stores as possible. The company's original goal was to hang on to 70 stores, Lemonis said in the Friday release, but decided to keep 57 that demonstrated they "have a clear path to profitability." The stores span across states including Wisconsin, New York, Texas, Michigan and Florida. Camping World expects to announced additional locations after it decides which stores to expand. Camping World shares are unchanged in Friday trading, but down 5.6% for the year so far. The S&P 500 index is up 8.1% for 2017 to date.

          Warren Buffett can make a $12 billion profit from his $5 billion investment   

Warren Buffett is a great example of how the rich get richer, as his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. can make a quick $12 billion with the $5 billion he invested nearly 6 years ago, a 240% gain. And that doesn't include interest. Berkshire said earlier Friday that it will exercise warrants to buy 700 million Bank of America Corp. common shares at $7.142857, for $5 billion. At current prices, with the stock trading up 0.9% at $24.53, the stake would be valued at $17.17 billion. Berkshire had acquired the warrants in August 2011 as part of its deal to invest $5 billion in Bank of America by purchasing 6% preferred stock, at a time when the bank was struggling in the aftermath of the financial crisis. The stock had tumbled 45% in a year, and had hit a 3 1/2-year low a day earlier. Berkshire said it would use the $5 billion it used the $5 billion in preferred stock to pay for its common stock purchase. Bank of America's stock has soared 83% over the past 12 months, while Berkshire shares have climbed 17% and the S&P 500 has rallied 15%.

          Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway to exercise warrants to buy 700 mln Bank of America shares   

Shares of Bank of America Corp. rose 1% in premarket trade Friday, after Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said it will exercise its warrants to buy 700 million shares of the bank's common stock, when the Bank of America's dividend increase takes effect.

          5 Tips for a Sustainable, Eco-Friendly Fourth of July   
It's always more fun when the Earth is happy, too.

With summer in full swing and the Fourth of July around the corner, everyone can benefit from a few tips on how to reduce the environmental footprint of their summer celebrations. Here are five tips to be more environmentally friendly for the Fourth of July (and all summer activities we take part in) and how we stay cool (as well as some motivating statistics to illustrate why its important to do so):

1. Take a stroll/hop on a bike

The average passenger vehicle emits 423 grams per mile, averaging about 5.1 metric tons a year so every bit counts when trying to reduce the miles we drive. Exhaust from cars also contributes to city’s heat island effect so can make the city feel even hotter. Instead of giving into our dependence on cars and fossil fuels, walk or bike to that Fourth of July BBQ you plan on attending, or carpool with a friend if it’s a longer trip. Getting a little sunshine, exercise, and reducing your carbon footprint is a win-win-win.

2. Pick up after yourself

Litter has environmental and economic impacts as well as threatens wildlife. Although not all litter is plastic, 90 percent of marine litter is with 10 million to 20 million tons of plastic entering the ocean every year. And this litter is coming from us: the top 10 items found on beach clean up day include food wrappers, beverage containers, and plastic bags. As you are out camping, having picnics, enjoying rivers and beaches don’t forget to leave with everything you came with. Let’s keep those beautiful places beautiful for generations to come!

3. Be conscious of your A/C use

In the U.S., about 100 million tons of carbon dioxide are emitted each year due to air conditioning use — an average of about two tons for each home with an A/C. If you plan on having guests over to enjoy Fourth of July festivities and plan on being inside, make sure the A/C is operating efficiently and minimize energy consumption. Clean out your air filters, cool only the rooms that you are using, and advise guests to keep doors and windows closed. Make sure all vents are open; closed vents mean that the system will work harder to maintain a constant temperature.

4. Replace the plastic

The U.S. generated almost 7 million tons of plastics as non-durable goods, such as plates and cups in 2012. Only 9 percent of the 14 million tons of total plastic waste was recycled (and we already mentioned where a high percentage went). It is easy to just grab a plastic water bottle on the go, but it is so much more fulfilling to fill up a reusable one. If you’re having guests over for the long weekend, try to use reusable silverware, cups, and plates which are the more environmentally friendly choice for your Fourth of July BBQ, and perhaps ask some close friends to help with dish-washing after.

5. Don’t forget the veggies

Livestock accounts for 14.5 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions with cattle-raising alone contributing 65 percent of the livestock sector’s GHGs. Our meat addiction also has environmental and social effects across borders as tropical forests continue to be cleared to meet increasing demands. Of course we love BBQs, but it’s no secret that eating vegetables is better for the environment. Show salads and summer veggies some love as well this Fourth of July!

Keep these tips in mind when you are out-and-about enjoying your summer in order to minimize the impact your Fourth of July activities have on the environment.

          Have the 'Food Evolution' Filmmakers Mistreated Moms?   
The documentary negatively portrays the entire organic food movement.

The trailer of the new documentary "Food Evolution," which negatively portrays both me and the organic food movement, fails to acknowledge the reality of American mothers. Our families are sick and struggling. And yet, when we remove GMOs and related toxins from our diet, we get better. The trailer implies that the movie will focus on the so-called noble promises of GMOs, yet fails to present reality in a noble manner.

In the last paragraph of the description of the film on its website, filmmakers Trace Sheehan and Scott Kennedy say, "And as we take in the scientific process at work, let's do our best to put aside bias so we can have more productive conversations and make the most informed decisions we can."  

Yet, in the trailer—before the movie is even out—they take my words out of context, misrepresenting what I say with heavy editing and belittling the experiences of thousands of American families. That doesn't look like putting bias aside; it looks like an advertisement for GMOs.

In fact, Scott Kennedy’s crew misrepresented their intentions in order to interview food movement proponents Jeffrey Smith, Vani Hari and myself. Claiming that the film would be a balanced representation of both sides of the food movement was misleading and ignoble.

Vani Hari told me she did not grant permission for her image to be used in the film, yet it was used anyway. Jeffrey Smith and I granted permission for one interview with first right of refusal. The filmmakers failed to honor that agreement and never showed us the first cut. Marion Nestle and I have asked for our interviews to be removed from the film, with no response.

A few months after the interview with Jeffrey Smith and Vani Hari, I was surrounded by GMO proponents Kavin Senapathy and Karl Haro Von Mogel at the March Against Monsanto in Chicago. They shouted at me in order to try to antagonize me into appearing like a hysterical activist. I told them they did not have my permission to use my image, but they did anyway. The filmmakers are more interested in appeasing the chemical companies that sell GMOs and pesticides than of accurately portraying concerned Americans.

In the film they edited my interview in order to make it look like I said, “I trust social media more than scientists.” What I actually said was that I trust the mothers who are seeing their children get sick after consuming GMOs and related toxins and are courageously sharing their new reality on social media, more than the scientists who are conducting isolated experiments funded by Big Ag.

I said that when I see my child get sick after consuming GMOs and toxins, and then see him get better when he eats organic foods, I don’t need another scientific study to tell me we should avoid GMOs and toxins. Thousands of moms agree with me and they are sharing their experiences as well. I trust the moms who are sharing their truth. Apparently Scott Kennedy does not.

This film is not only blatantly pro-GMO, it is patronizing. The filmmakers are trying to make the issue look like it’s an issue of emotional moms vs. science. The fact is, GMO proponents are nervous because we have the truth and we have sound science to back us up. The filmmakers would not be trying to invalidate us if we did not have something valid to say.

The film attempts to discredit the organic food movement by belittling the power of social media, but the world knows that social media is now the dominant way to reach people with a message. (Just ask President Trump.) Social media is filled with honest stories of sick children, desperate families and skyrocketing medical costs. Unfortunately, pro-GMO proponents are pushing cherry-picked scientific data from short-term studies, while failing to disclose their funding.  

Their perspectives are limited by their lack of real-world experience and their motivations are questionable. It’s no coincidence that the point the film is trying to make aligns with huge profits for chemical companies.

In the New York Times review of the film, the reviewer writes that while it's true there is an increased use of pesticides with GMOs, "those pesticides are far less toxic."  

What degree of food toxicity is acceptable for you to give to your children? Maybe science doesn't know the answer to that question, but mothers do.

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

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

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

1. Hepatitis E

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2. Multiple Sclerosis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So, what’s behind these eerie associations?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4. Yersinia

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Conclusion

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

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

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

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

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

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

          In Kenya’s drylands, education is an insurance policy, but only for some   

Livestock is so central to the economy, food, and status of pastoralists in Kenya’s northern drylands that formal education has traditionally taken second place to the role children play in tending to cows, goats, and sheep.

But with climate change increasingly seen as imperiling livelihoods, many pastoralists are now taking the longer view and regard education as a sort of insurance policy. And yet the severity of the current drought affecting much of east Africa, coupled with a long interruption in the provision of free meals, has led to a drop in school attendance.

“The drought has become too harsh,” said Atiir Lokwawi, a 42-year-old mother who lives in the village of Kalokutanyang, in Kenya’s Turkana County. “Animals are dying in huge numbers. We restock, but before we stabilise, drought comes and takes away our investment.”

Lokwawi’s husband travelled to Uganda to graze most of the family’s herd. Of the 40 goats he left behind, 35 have died because of the drought.

“It is good if at least one child goes to school,” said Lokwawi. “Educating our children is also another way to earn money – animals alone cannot help us survive,” she said, explaining that of her seven children, only one, a 15-year-old girl, is currently attending school.

“It will take time for our children to go to school and get jobs, but at least there is hope that, someday, someone will be there for us.”

To help make ends meet, Lokwawi makes charcoal and attends evening classes at a local mobile school.

“I burn charcoal to invest in my daughter’s education. The government pays for her fees, but I have to buy her books, pen, and uniforms. She is my hope, my only family hope,” said Lokwawi, adding that she would like her daughter to become a doctor.

Another of her daughters was married off, bringing the family a substantial dowry of livestock. But most of these animals also perished.

Christine Tukei, a teacher at Kalokutanyang’s mobile primary school, said education for pastoralists “needs to go beyond the [national] curriculum.

“It needs to add value and incorporate their lifestyle. It is vital to help communities prepare for and respond to impacts of climate change while promoting a sustainable way of life.”

The mobile school has about 100 students: roughly two thirds youths aged between nine and 17, and one third adults aged between 35 and 42.

Classes take place between 8 and 10 pm, as during daytime the children are usually tending to livestock herds while the adults make and sell charcoal.

The ravages of the drought have led Tukei to add adaptation strategies to what she teaches.

“We discuss the importance of early destocking, minimising herds to manageable levels; the importance of investing in education; and alternative businesses. I also teach about preserving meat with salt as they slaughter some animals and store for food; and about good health and sanitation,” she explained.

Disastrous drought

The current drought, which started in 2016 and which the Kenyan government deems a national emergency, has dried up water resources in half of the country’s 47 counties, leaving an estimated three million people lacking access to clean water, according to OCHA, the UN’s emergency aid coordination body.

“Recurrent droughts have destroyed livelihoods, triggered local conflicts over scare resources and eroded the ability of communities to cope,” OCHA said, noting that prices of staple food had risen considerably.

The drought has sent rates of global acute malnutrition soaring: in Turkana North sub-county, the rate is 30.7 percent, more than double the emergency threshold.

Across Kenya, up to 3.5 million people are expected to need food assistance in August, up from 2.6 million in February, according to the UN’s World Food Programme.

Large numbers of livestock deaths have been reported in Turkana County, as well as in the counties of Marsabit, Samburu, and Mandera.

As well as Kenya, drought is ravaging Ethiopia and Kenya. In these three countries, the education of some six million children has been disrupted, according to OCHA.

Many children in Turkana tend livestock rather than attend school

Low enrolment

Although the national introduction of free primary education in 2003 led to an increase in school attendance across Kenya, enrolment rates in dryland counties such as Turkana remain much lower than the rest of the country.

And of those who enroll in the first year of school, barely one in five stick it out through the eighth year, with dropouts attributed to early marriage and the need to look after livestock.

Even though going to school can lead to improved agriculture, better health, improved community relations, and better management of natural resources, “the culture [here] does not allow the community to attach much premium on education,” Muthengi Muvea, the director of education in the sub-county of Turkana Central, told IRIN.

“A high number of pastoralists are not willing to wait for over 20 years to see returns on their investment, while a child has immediate returns such as dowry for girls and herding for boys,” he explained.

According to Muvea, at any given time, at least 40 percent of children who are supposed to be in school in Turkana County are not.

This is attributed to: parents migrating during drought in search of pasture and water; inadequate infrastructure; understaffing in schools; and the parents’ general unwillingness to enroll their children in school.

“January 2017 saw enrollment [in Turkana] drop by over 9,200 from the 2016 third term,” said Jesse Nyongesa, of the Ministry of Education.

Matters were made worse in the first few months of 2017 by an interruption in the provision of free school meals across much of the country, although these meals – provided since 1980 by WFP and the Kenyan government and now benefiting 1.5 million children at an annual cost of four billion shillings ($39 million) – resumed in May.

“During drought, the meal the children get in school is the only meal they are likely to get for the day,” said Matthew Epetet, the head teacher of a primary school in the Turkana Central village of Lochwa.

“It’s critical to attaining food security in this part of the country. Unless it's assured, the rate of retention is low, especially for the junior classes.”

Since it launched a Home-Grown School Meals programme in 2009, the government of Kenya has gradually increased its role in feeding school children. HGSM now benefits twice as many children as WFP’s contribution and is set to feed all by 2019.

Under the programme, food is bought from nearby farmers, thereby stimulating the local economy while encouraging children to attend school.

The interruption of free school meals, combined with the migration of parents in search of water and pasture, led attendance at the school to fall by more than half, said Epetet.

“From a total of 585 students, only 257 students are attending class now,” he said. “Among the 103 girls enrolled in school, about 37 are no longer in school. The pre-primary pupils have already stopped coming to school.”

The head teacher explained that the recent start of oil exploration in Turkana’s Lokichar Basin had been another factor in falling attendance.

“Fifteen boys have dropped out of school to work as motorcycle riders within Lokichar,” he said. “Some are seeking manuals job from those employed in oil exploration companies such as fetching water.”

Muvea believes it will take time before education fully improves the welfare of the community and contributes to a meaningful, sustainable manner of resilience.

“It's about perception,” asserted Muvea. “School becomes necessary during drought emergencies because of food access. The way pastoralists perceive education has to change if it is to play a fundamental role in strengthening their resilience.”

          Letargo estivo.   
Come ogni estate, rallentiamo clamorosamente il nostro ritmo teatresco (teatrico? Teatrante? Teatrillare.), come un letargo invertito.
Il caldo nei teatri e' insopportabile e francamente non c'e' un cavolo in giro, quindi il battito cardiaco del West End si addormenta per tornare in settembre piu' grande e piu' bello che pria! ("BRAVO!" Grazie!)

Un paio di uscite, magari in tarda serata che fa piu' fresco, ce le concediamo:

JULIE ATHERTON @ DELFONT ROOM (06.06.10)
Andiamo (con Emily e le solite facce note che bazzicano il West End) a vedere il lancio del nuovo album di Julie, che anzi se volete accattarlo e' QUI al Dress Circle.
A parte volevo soffermarmi un attimo su quanto GNOCCA e' diventata.
Per una che noi amorevolmente abbiamo sempre chiamato Cozzetta ((c)Alberto), e' un bel passo avanti.
Ha perso un fracco di chili, si e' sbiondata e ha comprato sex appeal in svendita da qualcuno, evidentemente.
Mischia Tori Amos, Skunk Anansie e Sondheim, canta qualunque cosa le capiti a tiro, probabilmente renderebbe credibile anche il jingle della pubblicita' dei cereali.
Dopo un'ora che si spacca i polmoni pero', gia' non ce la fa piu'. Mi sa che l'assenza dai palcoscenici non le sta facendo bene, perche' si stava giocando la voce come una novellina, invece che come professionista che fa 8 show a settimana.
Passiamo a salutare prima Julie, che salta fuori ci stalka su Twitter, e poi Paoletto lo Speziale (ariLOL), regista & organizzatore della serata, del CD e dell'intera carriera di Julie, e tra una smanceria e l'altra se ne esce fuori con un: '.ah si, che poi sto seguendo la vostra relazione su Twitter, ah ah..'
Cioe', pure lui si fa senza pudore i cazzi nostri. Devo stare attenta a quello che scrivo.
Il giorno dopo anzi fa una pulizia generale della sua f-list, affermando che seguendo gente a random 'non riusciva piu' a seguire i suoi amici'.
A me e alla Moglie non ci ha cancellato. Permettetemi di gongolare un attimo.
Paoletto e' attualmente, con Zio Martin e Sheridan, la mia persona preferita del WE.

LEGALLY BLONDE (13.06.10)
Ci infiliamo un Blonde tra capo e collo perche' stanno registrando il CD live e abbiamo vinto i biglietti con il concorsone su Feisbuc. Ole'.
Ed e' anche l'ultima volta che vediamo Duncan, povero.
Inguardabile e incapace, (non si sa come ma e' anche peggiorato da 6 mesi fa) ma oh se mi manchera', questo pirla stratosferico..*sigh*
Comunque. Ci becchiamo anche Lucy come Serena (che io ADDDDORO), Emma come Margot (che trovo un tantinello da pantomima, ma vabbe'..) e Jane come Stenographer/Gabby (e Jane vince SEMPRE.)
Finalmente riesco anche a dare a Sheridan la pasta a forma di cazzetti comprata ad Amalfi (non chiedete, e' una lunga storia), che lei ha apprezzato molto al grido di 'OMG I LOVE THEM!!!', al contrario delle predizioni di mia mamma che non aveva approvato l'acquisto.
Io ho sempre ragione, mamma.
Adesso e' appena stato il suo compleanno, vediamo quanti altri mesi ci metto a portarle il regalo.
In tempo per Natale, immagino.

Nel frattempo ci vengono a trovare in rapida sequenza (e accavallandosi anche un po') Mischa dalla Svezia con furore e Kat di passaggio da Ginevra.
Mischa lo abbiamo ospitato sul divano e non l'abbiamo visto quasi per niente, usciva all'alba per fare le day queue ai teatri e tornava intorno a mezzanotte, e Kat l'ho vista una mezz'ora con Vicky e Sabrina a prendere un frozen yogurt da Snog prima del loro Hair serale.


SPAMALOT UK TOUR (BROMLEY, 28.06.10)
Acchiappiamo la YB e andiamo a Bromley a vedere Simon, che non si sa grazie a quale santo nel paradiso del casting, si e' beccato Galahad in Spamalot Tour.
Il set e i costumi da pantomima, in uno show che vuole essere cheesy e trasandato apposta, non funzionano benissimo, sembrava di guardare una produzione parrocchiale.
Il King Arthur sembrava capitato li' per caso, piu' che il re sembrava il giullare, anche se aveva delle belle uscite da Chandler Bing.
Patsy e Bedevere (non piu' flautolento) senza personalita' alcuna.
Il corpo di ballo costituito da ben 4 persone, due ragazzi e due ragazze.
I costumi sono stati tutti cambiati da 'Crociati' a una cosa piu' Tudor, tutte righine e frangie penzolanti.
Il wooden rabbit disegnato di spalle (WHY?!) e il castello dei francesi era talmente di cartoncino bristol che ho temuto venisse giu' durante il taunting.
Simon, devo dire, fa ridere. E stranamente non usa la voce da Nicky di Avenue Q, come invece fa sempre. Ottimo anche il suo Black Knight.
E omg surprise! Il Lancelot era il nostro ex Galahad!! Rapato a zero e con un ghigno quasi scary, irriconoscibile. Un Lancelot degno, ma lo preferivo come Galahad.
Al Robin e' stata cambiata la canzone, adesso non gli serve piu' un ebreo, ma gli serve una star da stunt castare.
Qualche joke eliminato, qualche joke aggiornato (soprattutto di scherno verso l'Inghilterra eliminata ai Mondiali).
E Jodie.
Oh, Jodie.
Overacta, si dimena, si diverte, e si canta via i polmoni.
Non e' manco paragonabile ad Hannah, ma e' talmente paciarottona che le vuoi istintivamente bene appena entra.
E alla fine tutti insieme a cantare Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life col sing-a-long, e company bows.

A proposito di Hannah, abbiamo prenotato una data a random in Agosto per vedere Into The Woods all'Open Air, ma visto le ottime previsioni del tempo ho il terrore che non troveremo sconti piu' in la' e finiremo col vederlo una volta sola. Gasp. NON SIA MAI!

Nel frattempo c'e' gia' stato anche il Gay Pride e io me lo sono perso per il terzo anno di fila. Bad gay, bad, BAD gay.
          Snowbird Leather Bird Mask in Glittering White with Silver - Halloween Costume, Masquerade Mask by beadmask   

56.00 USD

This is a one off variation of my "wicked bird" or "starling" mask design. It's an abstract bird shape with detailed twists and curls, that is flattering on men and women alike. Like all of my masks, this one was hand cut and sculpted from premium tooling leather, dyed, painted and finally sealed with a protective top coat.

This one is painted a snowy white with silver accents and a liberal dusting of ultrafine glitter. Sadly, my camera did not capture the intense sparkle of the glitter - it really is stunning!

Measurements are approximately 10" wide x 4" high at the highest and widest points, and the mask ties with stretchy straps.

The last photo shows this same design in silver - just to be clear, the mask in this listing is glittery white, but I included the photo of the silver one in order to provide a sense of the size and fit.

          Sprite Or Fairy Mask In Cobalt and Aqua Blue - Sculpted Leather Fantasy Costume - Handmade Leather Mask - READY TO SHIP by beadmask   

42.00 USD

My leather sprite or fairy masks are very flattering to most faces, and the simple design is quite versatile. With the right accessories, it works as a fairy, nymph, elf, sprite, elemental - and whatever else your imagination can stir up! This half mask design is also great for color blocking, if you're trying to match a piece of formal wear for a prom, masquerade ball or gala attire.

These little leather masks are hand cut from my own original pattern, and then sculpted from quality tooling leather. I hand paint them and seal the color with a protective top coat. They measure approximately 5 & 1/2" high x 11" wide, and they tie with high quality stretch ribbon.

This one is ready to ship in cobalt and aqua blue, though I do have a couple of other color combos available in this style right now: https://www.etsy.com/shop/beadmask/search?search_query=sprite

Many thanks to Priya Alahan for the photos.

The last photo shows a different variation of this mask, just to give a general idea of the fit.

          Nigeria Restructuring: Yorubas Are The Most Ungrateful Backstabbers – Arewa Youth Coalition   
Nigeria Restructuring: Yorubas Are The Most Ungrateful Backstabbers – Arewa Youth Coalition

Published by Family Writers Press

Less than two weeks a quite notice was issued to Igbos living in the North by the controversial coalition of Arewa youth, they have moved south west, stating that, “the Yoruba are the most ungrateful stock in Nigeria”, in a statement signed on behalf of the group by Muhammed Shehu and Tanko Abdullahi, after an emergency meeting called by the coalition in Daura, Katsina State, on Tuesday, June 27, 2017.

In what may be the most inflammatory statement of the times, the Northern youth group, which said that they speak for the youth of Northern Nigeria, said “having given power to the Yoruba on a platter of gold in 1999 as a way of compensating them for the June 12 saga, it is quite worrisome and unfortunate that they have lived up to their legendary reputation of backstabbing and betrayal by supporting the divisive calls for restructuring or dismemberment of the nation against the will and desire of the north”.
“We gave the late Chief MKO Abiola the mandate in 1993 but shortly after that, as it is with the Yoruba as a culture, they immediately started circling around Abiola plotting on how to emasculate the north and strip us of every access we had to the politics and economy of this nation,” the Arewa group said.

“They had also raised a secret army of their elites to carry out these sinister plans against the north if Abiola eventually became president. It was this army that was unleashed on the nation in the guise of NADECO during the June 12 impasse.
“May we remind the Yoruba that without the willingness and magnanimity of the north, there was no way Abiola could have purportedly won that election, and that all the Yoruba have now as assets in the south west, especially Lagos, were given to them by our leaders out of our own usual magnanimity. However, time and time again, the Yoruba have always turned their back on us whenever their support is needed. They have chosen to pitch tent with the Igbo this time around just to spite us, but we shall not succumb to their antics.

“We are very much aware that all the attacks against President Muhammadu Buhari were planted in the media by the Yoruba and spread by southerners generally just to discredit the north in order to pave way for their son, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to become president. But their plans will fail insha Allah.
“We shall resist every of such plans and ensure by all means possible, that the north completes its eight-year tenure and possibly even continue after then, and that the federal structure of Nigeria as it currently is, is not tampered with by secession mongers and their collaborators,” the statement concluded.

          Comment on SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY): Stock Markets Hyper-Risky by Pierpaolo D'Urso   
stock market bulls end in euphory, did you ever see any sort of real euphory in the last year? The market is preparing to it
          Memocorp Office at 259 George St Sydney by The Stella Collective.   

The Stella Collective have finished their first office fit out in the prestigious 259 George St building in Sydney. Although by the time Stella was done with it, 'office fit out' are the last words you’d use to describe it. It’s more 'day spa meets fashion label HQ meets luxe retail space'.

With their trademark fine, black steel shelving units, housing either a plant de jour or a sought after Aesop product, the space has got the Stella stamp all over it. From the feminine pale oak flooring that runs throughout the space, to the shimmery golden finishes, it's as far from a stock standard office as you’re likely to get.

The Stella Collective were going for a boutique hotel feeling or a luxury penthouse and aptly coined the project Office In the Sky.

The building had great bones to work with. The 1,000 square meter, located on the top floor, is subject to some of the most exquisite views Sydney has to offer. Frankly it’s hard to step a foot wrong with that as your backdrop.

Stella was up for a total reinterpretation of what an office space should look and feel like.

“Memocorp office represents a throwing out of the design rules of the past in corporate life to re-interpret the way we interact with our work place. There are defined areas to eat, work, play and unwind yet all feels connected.”

“Light flows from room use, large steel framed glazing replacing the typical ‘shutting off of meeting rooms’, creating light-filled and joyous spaces, whilst also allowing the chance to have privacy when required.”

The aim was for the space to be a nourishing one, to have almost a spiritual effect on the end user.

The space feels very gentle. Feminine. Everything has been carefully detailed and thought through. And one can only applaud each time a design team decides to push the boundaries and try a new approach to commercial design.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. 1919-től a fővárosi Pázmány Péter Tudományegyetem orvosi fakultásán folytatott tanulmányokat három éven át. 1922-1925 között a budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Vaszary János irányítása mellett képezte magát. A tanár eruptív lénye, festészetének franciás szelleme nem maradt hatástalan az akkor még fiatal művészre. Csók István is hozzájárult ehhez hasonlón hatásokkal, akinek pécsi művésztelepén alkotott "Havihegy" című művére díjat is kapott. Elnyerve a Vallás- és Közoktatásügyi Minisztérium párizsi tanulmányi ösztöndíját, 1925-27 között Párizsban tartózkodott. A Pécsi Képzőművészek és Műbarátok Társaságának aktív tagja, a bécsi Künstlerbund Hagen levelező tagja, a KUT törzstagja, az UME alapító tagja, később pedig alelnöke volt. 1930-ban gyűjteményes tárlata volt az Ernst Múzeumban. Rendszeresen szerepelt a KUT és az UME fővárosi, vidéki és külföldi tárlatain. Barmenben, Frankfurtban, Düsseldorfban, Bochumban, Varsóban, Krakkóban, Firenzében, Stockholmban és másutt rendezett reprezentatív magyar kortárs tárlatok anyagába válogatták be munkáit. Alkotásait választékos kolorit, dekoratív, posztimpesszionista hangvétel jellemzi. Egy ideig az expresszionizmus foglalkoztatta, majd az 1930-as évek végén szürrealisztikus elemek is megjelennek festményein. Művészeti díjak: a Pécsi Művésztelep díja (1923), az Ernst Múzeum akvarelldíja (1925), a Vallás és Közoktatásügyi Minisztérium ösztöndíja (1925-27), UME díj (1928), a budapesti Hírlap pályázatának festészeti díja (1930), balatoni ösztöndíj (1938, 1939), Városképek c. kiállítás díja (1940), székelyföldi ösztöndíj (1942), Aranykoszorúval Díszített Csillagrend (1990). Több műve a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria tulajdona. (KMML, ML, Éber, M. O.: Műv. 1967/6, H. L.: Műv. 1988/2)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
Festő és grafikus. Vaszary János növendéke, a Képzőművészek Új Társasága és az Új Művészek Egyesületének állandó kiállítója volt. Szürrealista és nonfiguratív műveket fest. Két ízben szerepelt a Velencei Biennálén. 1959-ben az Ernst Múzeumban, 1972-ben Miskolcon mutatta be gyűjteményes anyagát, 1987-ben pedig feleségével együtt Pápán állított ki. - Irod.: Heitler László: Népszava, 1987. szept. - MKMagyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.

          Valentines Day Crafts!   
Here are a few creations from Better Homes and Gardens that are on my "to do" list.



BHG created theirs from fabric scraps, but I think I'll use some Valentines Scrapbook paper that I already have on hand.   Just add ribbon and attach to the mantle hang from a curtain rod!  How easy is that!





Look familiar?  I can use my new pedestal from my last post and dress it up with a little festive paper and ribbon and be done!  Another quickie.






Hand painted place mats and coasters made with craft foam... The kids will have so much fun making these on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  I can't wait to see their creations!





Check out this simple heart wreath made from card stock and vellum pieces.





Cut a base from card stock.  Cut out different shaped hearts, curl the edges and adhere.  Hang with decorative ribbon.


I found all of these and more here  
at Better Homes and Gardens.
I'm still on the look out for more Valentines Day crafts so if you have any to share, please do!

          Mod Podge Tray   
I found this looovely tray at Goodwill for $3.99 and could not pass it up.  I had no idea what its future held, but I knew it had something to do with mod podge.  




I REALLLLY wanted to tile it with some glass tiles I found at Home Depot, but unfortunately, they didn't have enough in stock, and I wasn't willing to wait.  I may end up going back for the glass tiles when they get more in stock and using them for another project because I just love them so, but for now I decided to just go with some paper and some mod podge (are you suprised?).

I haven't sealed it yet.  Something tells me I'm not quite done with it yet.  I'm not sure what else there is to be done, but there's something.  It will come to me in time.

          The 64th Sydney Film Festival Awards On Body and Soul (Berlin winner)   

onbodyandsoul1.jpg

The 64th Sydney Film Festival tonight awarded On Body and Soul, directed by Ildikó Enyedi, the prestigious 10th anniversary Sydney Film Prize, out of a selection of 12 Official Competition films. 

The $60,000 cash prize for 'audacious, cutting-edge and courageous' film was awarded to Enyedi at the Festival’s Closing Night Gala awards ceremony and event at the State Theatre, ahead of the Australian premiere screening of Bong Joon-ho's Okja. 

Accepting the award, Enyedi said, “It was such an amazingly strong competition. It’s marvellous that such a film can move so many people, it gives me so much hope in cinema and in human communication.”

Sydney filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood were awarded the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary’s $10,000 cash prize for The Pink House, about the last brothel in old mining town Kalgoorlie.

The Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films saw the $7000 cash prize for the Dendy Live Action Short Award going to Adele, directed by Mirene Igwabi.  Sunday Emerson Gullifer was Highly Commended for her short film Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.  And Daniel Agdag's animation Lost Property Office took out both the $7000 Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Director and the $5000 Yoram Gross Animation Award.

The Event Cinemas Australian Short Screenplay Award, a $5,000 prize for the best short screenwriting, was awarded to Michael Cusack, the writer and director of stop motion animation After All.  And the writers of Screenability short film The Milky Pop Kid, Johanna Garvin and Emily Dash, were Highly Commended. 

The $10,000 Sydney-UNESCO City of Film Award, bestowed by Create NSW to a trail-blazing NSW-based screen practitioner, went to Indigenous Australian actor, director and writer Leah Purcell.

Chris Freeland announced he will step down as Sydney Film Festival Chair while remaining on the Board.   Freeland, a Partner of Baker McKenzie and a member of its Asia Pacific Regional Council, chaired the organisation for eight years.  He led an era of expansion as well as industry and public popularity, seeing attendances almost double.

Festival Board Director Deanne Weir was welcomed to the position of Chair. Weir has over 25 years’ experience in media and communications and is Foxtel’s Managing Director, Content Aggregation and Wholesale.  She is also a renowned television producer and philanthropist whose passion is to support the advancement of women in the community.

Sydney Film Festival CEO Leigh Small said, “This year again, the Festival exceeded previous attendance figures – a continuing ten-year trend. There was an average of 72% capacity across all sessions with almost 185,000 attendances. This result marks a fitting end to Chris Freeland’s eight year tenure during which the number of people attending the Sydney Film Festival almost doubled.”

Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said: “2017 has been a significant year for film and filmmakers.   As the world looks for ways to understand and interpret the momentous events and challenges facing humanity, filmmakers across the globe have risen to the challenge.

“From refugees and the horrors of war, to the state of the world’s oceans,  this program of films - screened to Australian audiences for the first time at the 64th Sydney Film Festival - has provided an opportunity to debate and discuss some of the most pressing and contentious issues of our time.

“With a spotlight on questions of equality in race, sexuality, wealth, accessibility, and many other global conversations, these 12 days have provided a wealth of stories from diverse viewpoints and a moment in time to take stock of who, what and where we are today.

“I congratulate all the winners and all of the finalists, as well as the hundreds of filmmakers who have joined us at the Festival to present their ideas and opinions in films, talks and discussions,” he said.

THE SYDNEY FILM PRIZE

On awarding the Sydney Film Prize to Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi’s On Body and Soul, Jury President Margaret Pomeranz said:

"Over the past 12 days we’ve experienced a most extraordinary cinematic journey curated by Sydney Film Festival.

"We’ve seen films about women struggling to find a space for themselves in a world that seems to want to keep them in their place; there have been films about transgressions, from youthful murder to child abuse.

"We’ve seen films about the many faces of sexual desire; we’ve been invited into worlds of wonder we have never experienced and we’ve been exposed to the ugly side of ourselves, through racism, poverty, cruelty and displacement.  And we’ve also been invited into the world of human compassion.

"And that element of compassion is very present in the film we’ve chosen to award the Sydney Film Prize.  It’s a film that shows us that even in this divided world we are capable of sharing the same dreams, that amongst the ugliness of a slaughterhouse, kindness, gentleness can be found," she said.

"So the Sydney Film Prize goes to the graceful, measured and ever so compassionate On Body and Soul from Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi."

Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear, On Body and Soul is Enyedi’s visually ravishing return to filmmaking after an 18-year break.  The film is about the unconventional romance between two co-workers who discover that each night they have exactly the same dreams.

The Festival jury was comprised of Australian film critic Margaret Pomeranz, critically acclaimed Nepali director Deepak Rauniyar, former senior film executive of South Korean powerhouse CJ Entertainment Kini Kim, independent Asian-Canadian animator Ann Marie Fleming, and Australian film producer Rosemary Blight of smash-hit The Sapphires and acclaimed television series Cleverman.

Previous winners include: Aquarius (2016), Arabian Nights (2015); Two Days, One Night (2014); Only God Forgives (2013); Alps (2012); A Separation (2011); Heartbeats (2010); Bronson (2009); and Hunger (2008).

The competition is endorsed by FIAPF, the regulating body for international film festivals, and is judged by a jury of five international and Australian filmmakers and industry professionals.

THE DOCUMENTARY AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTARY

The Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary was awarded to The Pink House from filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood. The Jury comprising award-winning Asian-American filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz, CEO of the Documentary Australia Foundation Dr Mitzi Goldman and Australian based Iranian filmmaker Amin Palangi in a joint statement said:

"Amongst ten noteworthy films, one film enthralled us with its blend of nuanced characters and narrative depth. 

“In classic cinema verite fashion, the filmmaker introduces us to two singular women who give her unfettered access to their constantly changing lives, revealing a profound trust between filmmaker and subject that renders this film deeply personal and intimate.

“Through the unflinching gaze of her lens, this filmmaker immerses us in a world that, in less disciplined hands, could very well have been voyeuristic.  Instead we are treated to a film that is handled with affection and grace.”

“We the Jury give the Australian documentary prize to Sasha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood for The Pink House.” 

2017 marks the fourth year the prize has been supported by the Foundation.

Previous winners include: In the Shadow of the Hill (2016); Only the Dead (2015); 35 Letters (2014); Buckskin (2013); Killing Anna (2012); Life in Movement (2011); and The Snowman (2010). In 2009 the inaugural prize was shared between Contact and A Good Man, and each film received a $10,000 cash prize.

THE DENDY AWARDS FOR AUSTRALIAN SHORT FILMS

The Jury comprised Canadian filmmaker Kirsten Carthew, former Vice President of Paramount Pictures Mike Selwyn, and Australian film producer Kath Shelper. In a joint statement, the Jury said:

"This year’s Jury was particularly excited by the exceptional talent that continues to emerge from Australia’s animation sector.

“We were captivated by the original and diverse stories and variety of animation techniques presented in both the Dendy Awards and in the rest of the Festival.

“Lost Property Office stood out for its direction, storytelling and exquisite visuals that could only have been realised through animation, which was the perfect choice of medium to tell this story.”

The Festival’s short-film competition is now in the 48th year; and has been sponsored by Dendy Cinemas for 29 years. Winners of the Best Live Action Short Film award and the Yoram Gross Animation award, sponsored by Yoram Gross Films, are Academy Award-eligible, opening new pathways for many Australian filmmakers.

          Sooze Orman Has A Change Of Heart   

Has the Sooze had a Road-to-Damascus Experience?

We haven't heard much from the Sooze lately.  Maybe her "You're Approved" program lost its appeal (EDIT: It was cancelled, and the successor program is in limbo - and controversial, apparenty).  Whatever the reason, she's apparently decided to go back to her roots and offer some common-sense advice.  Maybe it's because so many financial advisors now these days are encouraging self-indulgence that going against the flow would get her some attention get her back in the Press.

Or maybe she is just whoring for publicity to sell at $54 online course on finances.  Maybe.  I guess since she can't make money selling "FICO kits" anymore, this seemed like a good deal.

Whatever the reason, it's time to give the Sooze a big hug (at arm's length, with one hand on our wallet, just to be safe) because she's saying something rational for a change, even if she is attempting to personally profit from it.  In a recent CNBC article, she counsels people to spend less money on convenience transactions and points out that these little indulgences cost little by themselves, but  over time they add up to an awful lot of money missing from your bottom line.

Whether is getting takeout food instead of preparing your own meals, or stopping off at Starbucks for a three-dollar coffee, or at leasing a car instead of buying one and taking care of it, the incremental cost of these conveniences can really break the budget of a middle-class person.

I get a lot of flack from people who defend this type of behavior.  They don't believe that not indulging yourself in tiny little luxuries will make a big difference in your life.  After all it's only a dollar here, two dollars there, ten dollars here, or a hundred dollars there.  How could that add up to a million dollars over time?

This also plays into the mentality that if you can't be a billionaire in 10 seconds or less, why bother trying?  You might as well just spend all your money to entertain yourself and wallow in self-pity. And to some extent we all do this, it is a part of human nature.

But having been at both ends of this transaction, I can see how it plays out over time.  When I was very young, I squandered a lot of money on self indulgence and it was pretty stupid.  I did manage to save some money, and over period of thirty years this morphed into a sizable retirement nest egg.  My only regret is not cutting back even just slightly on my self-indulgence in my earlier years and put more money aside, is it would have meant how much larger nest egg at this point in my life - not to mention the option of retiring even earlier.

And we're not talking about extreme sacrifices either.  I get emails from people saying "I don't want to eat ramen noodles to rest of my life" or some such thing.  For some reason, raman noodles get picked on a lot by people who wanted to disavow any kind of frugal lifestyle.  I'm not sure why they pick on ramen noodles.  They probably are not good for you - very high in carbohydrates, and also that powdery flavoring packet that comes with it is usually loaded with salt and MSG.

That is the nature of the "logic" that people use.  It's either caviar or ramen noodles and there's nothing in-between in their mind.  You either go out and have a good time or you live like a monk. There's nothing between these two extremes.  And of course, we call this a straw man argument.  You set up a straw man and then you knock him down which is easy to do because he's made of straw.

But the reality is, if you just cut back by a little bit, you can save an awful lot.  For example if you go out to lunch several times a week at work, consider brown-bagging it for one of those days. The amount of money you save might not be a lot - maybe five to ten dollars or so, but over time, it is going to add up to a significant amount in your retirement account.  When you get comfortable this, think about maybe brown-bagging it two days a week and so forth.  You might also find ancillary benefits in that going out to lunch with your co-workers can being emotional drag and also make you look like a slacker to your superiors - as usually these lunches extend for more than an hour.

Or take leasing. Many young people are lured into leasing a car because the monthly cost is lower. However the overall transaction cost is far higher, something most people realize when they try to turn the car in at the end of the lease and are socked with a lot of back-end charges.  All cars are used cars the moment you buy them.  So why not consider buying a two- to three-year-old car that is off-lease that some other idiot paid all the depreciation on and drive that instead?

A two- to three-year-old car looks just like a new car. I remember when I was at the Patent Office I bought a second-hand Camry from Avis.  I'm not necessarily recommending you buy a used rental car, but for me it was so much cheaper deal than a brand new car.  And all of my neighbors thought I had a brand new car, so if you're looking for bragging rights there really is no difference.  And realize that usually buying a new car is nothing more than bragging rights.  Just get over that and acknowledge your own human frailty - we all have the same problem.

But getting back to the Sooze, maybe this is a dawn of a new era from Ms. Orman.  Maybe from now on she'll start offering practical advice instead of going on television and telling people they're "approved" to buy things.  Quite frankly she lost me when she started going down that road.  She went from offering frugal advice to saying "you're approved" to buy a Sea Ray boat or a Buick car, after those companies sponsored her and paid her to endorse the products.

On the one hand, I don't blame her for going after the money, as we all need to make a living in this world and it's very hard to avoid the temptation of being corrupted by commercial influences.  We live in a capitalist society and you have to exploit your opportunities when they arise.

Corporate sponsorships can be a double-edged sword, as perhaps she is finding out.  Many people come including myself, criticized her for taking all these sponsorship deals as well as her "You're Approved!" television show as cheapening her overall message and reputation.

Sadly, it seems that most people just don't get this, or at least the television people think that we don't get it.  The shouting guy on the financial Channel still screams buy and sell for various sketchy stock deals which usually end up being a raw deal for the small investor.  The other Financial channels just hype the stock price and never talk about anything else such as profitability, P/E ratios, and least of all, dividends.  You would think from watching television that the only thing that matters about a company is its market cap.  The reality is of course, that market cap really needs nothing and if you were using that as a metric for evaluating a company, you have a broken compass.

So here's to the "new" Suze Orman.  Let's hope she is going back on track to her old advice and echewing the corruption of our secular world.  And hopefully, maybe she'll find an audience for this good advice.  But I would not pay $54 for it.

But given the feedback I've received from some readers, I think that she would be better off telling people what their approved for, is that seems to be when people like.  No one wants to hear hard truths - that's not marketable!

          Index Funds?   
What are index funds and should you invest in them?

A few years back, a reader wrote that I should look into index funds.  And I did and bought some shares in a couple of them.  What are index funds?  They are just mutual funds - that follow some stock index.   There are a plethora of mutual funds out there, investing in everything from stocks to bonds, to government bonds, to whatever.   And each fund usually has some sort of goal or strategy.  Small Cap, Large Cap, foreign bonds, US bonds, Municipal Bonds, tech stocks, energy stocks, income stocks, or whatever.

And each fund has a fund manager or managers who manage the fund and decide what to invest in.  And for the most part, you have no idea on what they are investing in, on a day-to-day basis.   You can sort of get an idea from the prospectus and annual report, but you don't know what they are buying and selling in real-time.   You are leaving it to an expert to make sound decisions, and he generally gets paid more for making better decisions, so his interests are aligned with yours.

Compare this to hedge funds, where the managers get paid a percentage of the fund balance regardless of whether they make money or not.   You can understand why people are fleeing hedge funds these days - the overhead is high and the returns in recent years are not as attractive.

Mutual funds may have front-end loads or back-end loads or they may be no-load.   For a typical "load" fund may have to pay a fee upfront (deducted from your investment) when you invest, and often this fee goes in part to the salesman who sold you the fund.  Yes, that friendly "investment advisor" isn't working for oxygen, he needs food on his table.  And that is why, when you, as a young person, go to a "storefront" investment advisor (and you know exactly which one I am talking about - coming to a strip mall near you!) they really aren't interested in talking to you unless you have at least $10,000 to invest - so they can make $500 "advising" you which mutual funds to invest in.   If you are just starting out in investing, well, go fuck yourself.   Come back when you got some real money, kid!  (Or at least that was my experience when I was in my 20's).

Some funds have fees (back end loads) you have to pay when you sell shares in the fund.  The idea here is to encourage you to invest for the long haul, rather than trade. So they penalize you when you decide to sell.   And some funds are "no load" which seems to defy gravity.  How does a mutual fund company make money if they are not charging a fee?  Volume?  No, they have something called an expense ratio that they charge to the fund every year.  You don't see this as a line-item on your statement, but it is buried in the annual report somewhere if you look for it.  And no, the friendly storefront investment advisor doesn't mention it unless you ask, and even then....

And let me just say right here that I was invested in mutual funds for well over a decade before I understood any of this.   And yes, I had investment "advisors" tell me I was investing in a "no load" fund which turned out to have a 5% front-end load, of which the advisor got half.   When rolling over a 401(k) or IRA, be particularly aware of this.   You might, after a few years of hard work, accumulate $100,000 or more in your 401(k).   Your friendly "investment advisor" will suggest you roll this over when you leave the company.   And if you are not careful, he may skim 5% off the top when you move the funds to his company - as a State Farm rep once tried to do with me.

It seems that no matter what investment house you use, the want you to "roll over" your investments to their little playpen, and usually there is a reason for this - a monetary reason.   Caveat Emptor.

But there are "no load" funds out there, and these funds make their money for their managers through the expense ratio fees.  And some funds charge a lot, and some charge a little.  Vanguard has a lot of low expense ratio funds.  And of these, index funds usually have the lowest expense ratios.  Why?  Well an index fund, as the name implies, invests in a "market basket" of stocks that correspond to some market index, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), the S&P 500, the NASDAQ Composite, or the like.

What are these indexes?  Well, that is the funny thing.  When people say "the stock market went up" or "the stock market went down" they are not talking about the entire market but an index instead.  The DJIA, for example, tries to measure the health of the market using a collection ("market basket") of stocks, usually "blue chip" type stocks.  And who is on this list of stocks and who is not, changes over time.  So in essence, the Dow, Jones people are "managing" your fund by determining what stocks are in the DJIA.   Your management company merely buys these stocks, takes a small, small cut as the expense ratio (like 0.15%) and then pays you the rest.

The advantages touted by such funds are many.   These indexes seem to go up over time far more than many "managed" investments.   People say if you just followed "The Dow" you'd make out better than most prognosticators, over time.   And since the expense ratios are tiny, you don't waste a lot of money on overhead costs.   For the mutual fund company, the costs are low, as a computer can basically trade the stocks automatically, as each person buys into the fund or sells out.

For example, Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund, states its goals as follows:
The Fund seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of the overall stock market. The Fund employs a "passive management" approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index.
So in this case, the "index" is the "US Total Market Index" as determined by the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP).   This is an index that actually tries to track the overall market.   How does the fund perform?  What are they invested in ?   Well our friends at Morningstar (who I thought made breakfast sausages, but I was mistaken) have some data on this:

What is a little scary to me about index funds is that these indexes tend to include popular and trendy stocks.   I would not buy Facebook stock on a dare, but since I am invested in mutual funds, I end up owning some of it, although only 1.41% of the overall fund.

Should you invest in an index fund?  Sure, why not.  But not as the only thing you invest in.  Odds are, at your place of work, if you have a 401(k), one of the choices of funds to invest in, is an index fund.   I would not put all my eggs into one fund basket, though, as indexes do go down over time.

Which are the best funds?   Well, it depends on who you ask, and when.  "Investorplace" has a list of the 7 best funds, but they also have a list of 10.  Kiplinger has a list of "only five" funds you need to know about.   Even Motley Fool has a list.   Odds are, your investment house has some of their own funds.  Fidelity and Vanguard have them, I am sure Merrill does as well.  The real decision to make is which index to use and who has the lowest expense ratios.   It goes without saying that paying a "load" on an index fund is sort of pointless.   It is not like they are advising you or trading your shares.

The advantages are many.  It sort of puts your investments on auto-pilot.   The market goes up, you make money.  It goes down, you lose with everyone else (unless your particular index outperforms the overall market).  You don't have to worry about traders churning your account down to zero by making crappy trades.  It is a pretty brainless form of investing.

But for the most part, it is a risk-taking venture, and unless your index fund is indexed on a government bond index or something, you can lose money.   So putting all your eggs into the index-fund basket is, in my opinion, a bad idea.

          Illinois House adjourns, plunging state into third year without a budget   
Illinois House lawmakers adjourned Friday without approving a budget, officially entering a third fiscal year without one, but with optimism that a deal can be reached over the weekend.

Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan conceded Friday morning that a budget deal wouldn't be consummated by midnight – the start of the 2018 state fiscal year – and implored the major bond ratings agencies not to downgrade the state’s credit rating to junk status.

But House lawmakers offered up a glimmer of hope with a bipartisan 90-25 test vote to approve a $36.5 billion spending plan fueled by a $5 billion income tax increase.

Lawmakers and experts statewide had warned for months about the host of bad consequences that await the state should it enter an unprecedented third straight year without a budget, courtesy of the differences between the Democratic-dominated General Assembly and Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

They go far beyond becoming the first U.S. state to be have its credit rating dip below investment grade. For starters, Comptroller Susana Mendoza has said she will be unable to cover the basic state services ordered paid by courts, and the Illinois State Department of Transportation has halted all of its road construction projects.

“We will remain in session to continue our progress toward passing a balanced budget," Madigan said in the statement. "In light of this ongoing progress, I would ask that bond rating agencies temporarily withhold judgment and allow legislators time to negotiate a bipartisan, balanced budget."

Madigan’s statement included letters he sent Friday to Fitch Ratings, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Service. Standard & Poor’s warned several weeks ago that it will downgrade the state to junk should it not have a budget by Saturday, and the other two agencies could follow suit.

"We will continue working to put a compromise on the governor’s desk and end this impasse through the next week, and I ask you to allow these negotiations to move forward," Madigan wrote to all three ratings firms.

Illinois' current spending, mandated by court orders and consent decrees despite the lack of a budget, has resulted in a $6.2 billion deficit and a $14.7 billion stack of unpaid bills as of Friday afternoon.

The proposed budget in the House relies on increasing the state income tax and cutting $2.4 billion.

The revenue plan conceived by House Democrats likely would increase the income tax rate for individual filers by 32 percent, or from 3.75 to 4.95 percent of income. The increase would take effect Saturday – earlier versions that made the increase retroactive to Jan. 1 met with resistance from Republicans.

If approved, it would take on average an extra $600 a year from a worker making $50,000 a year.

The 4.95 percent rate is close to the 5 percent rate that Illinois taxpayers paid for four years after lawmakers raised taxes in the lame-duck session after the 2010 election. That temporary increase, which raised the individual rate by 66 percent, took an average of a week's pay from every Illinois worker.

Rauner, who was elected in 2014 on a platform of reversing Illinois' sinking fortunes, has insisted that any budget that includes tax increases must include sufficient pro-taxpayer and pro-business reforms. They include a four-year property tax freeze, and reforms to workers' compensation laws and changes to pension benefits for state employees.

The bitter partisan divide in Springfield over how to come together on a spending plan has eased in significant part to cooperation as Republicans and Democrats alike work to avoid the nightmare scenario that experts warn will come to pass if a budget isn't finalized, and fast.

"I come to you today with great joy, not with regret or despair. We're going to save our state, and we're going to save it together," Rep. Steve Andersson, R-Geneva, the House Republicans' floor leader, said to thunderous applause.

Andersson, whose district includes a sliver of McHenry County, was the only local house lawmaker who voted yes on the 90-25 test bill. Republican Reps. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills; Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake; Steven Reick, R-Woodstock; and Allen Skillicorn, R-East Dundee, all voted no.

Skillicorn said that Illinois taxpayers will be giving more to the state in exchange for weak and "watered down" reforms.

"It's pretty clear to me that the governor and a large portion of Republicans have capitulated to the speaker," Skillicorn said. "The appropriations amendment didn't have any substantial cuts, no structural reforms, and really was something that compromises the values of the people of McHenry County."

McSweeney, as he has since the budget impasse started, reiterated that he is a "hell no" on any tax increase.

"There's nothing that's been done to reform Illinois government or spending. It's a travesty. It's a joke," McSweeney said.

Whatever plan the House passes will need to clear the Senate before going to Rauner for a vote. Senate Democrats approved a budget in May in the last days of the legislative session – without a single Republican vote – but Madigan did not bring it forward for consideration.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.


          Hanover Park man arrested in connection with Woodstock armed robbery   
WOODSTOCK — A Hanover Park man was charged Thursday with armed robbery, unlawful restraint and mob action in connection with a robbery that took place early Wednesday in Woodstock, police say.

According to a news release from the Woodstock Police Department, Brian Odell, 39, of the 4700 block of Zeppelin Dr., Hanover Park, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his Hanover Park residence by members of the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force. Investigators had identified Odell as one of the suspects responsible for an armed robbery that took place Wednesday at a residence in the 200 block of Throop Street in Woodstock.

When asked if other arrests in connection with the armed robbery would be made, Woodstock Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Parsons said, "We're still trying to firm up some things. We're sure there are other people involved."

Woodstock police are continuing to follow up on leads regarding the crime, and anyone with related information should call NERCOM at 815-363-2152.

Odell is currently being held on $200,000 bond in McHenry County jail. He was due in court Friday morning.


          Walgreens ends its attempt to buy Rite Aid   
NEW YORK – Walgreens has ended its takeover pursuit of rival Rite Aid after resistance from U.S. regulators and will instead now buy stores, distribution centers and inventory in a new deal.

The proposed merger, first announced in 2015, was initially for about $9.4 billion but was whittled down to about $6.8 billion earlier this year.

For scrapping the transaction, Walgreens Boots Alliance will pay Rite Aid Corp. a $325 million termination fee. It will pay Fred's Pharmacy an additional $25 million following the termination of a related asset deal.

Under the new agreement, Walgreens will buy 2,186 stores, three distribution centers and related inventory from Rite Aid for about $5.18 billion in cash. Walgreens also will assume the related real estate leases and certain limited store-related liabilities. Rite Aid will have an option, exercisable through May 2019, to become a member of Walgreen's group purchasing organization.

Walgreens said Thursday that the stores it purchases from Rite Aid will be converted to the Walgreens brand "over time." The stores included in the agreement are mostly located in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The three distribution centers are in Dayville, Connecticut, Philadelphia and Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The new transaction is targeted to close within the next six months.

Before the new deal, Deerfield-based Walgreens and Camp Hill, Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid faced a complicated task of easing antitrust concerns to complete the buyout. The companies initially expected to sell no more than 500 stores to appease regulators, but that was eventually pushed to 1,200 stores.

The combination of Walgreens, the largest U.S. drugstore, and Rite Aid would have created a drugstore giant with more than 11,000 stores nationally, even with the sale of more than a thousand stores. That would have been a few thousand more than the nearest competitor, CVS Caremark Corp.

Meanwhile, Walgreens reported a 5.3 percent boost in fiscal third-quarter profit to$1.16 billion, or $1.07 per share. Earnings, adjusted for one-time gains and costs, were $1.33 per share.

Revenue rose 2.1 percent to $30.1 billion.

The results exceeded Wall Street expectations. Analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research were looking for earnings of $1.31 per share on $29.68 billion in revenue.

Rite Aid reported a first-quarter adjusted loss of 5 cents per share on revenue of $7.78 billion.

Shares of Rite Aid plunged more than 22 percent in premarket trading, while Fred's stock tumbled nearly 20 percent. Shares of Walgreens were up 6.5 percent.

Bryan, someday I'll tell you about when my sister decided to take up the w-to-w carpet grip strips from the hardwood floors in my mom's old house. Wish I could say "pry up" - still hurts to talk about it. From a well stocked tool closet, she chose a three foot wrecking bar for the job.

I'm a bit north of you in zone 6b/7a depending on what map you look at. Our winters can be mild, but do expect several freezes throughout the winter with thaws in the morning. For someone that was out of town, would a stock tank heater be some extra insurance against freezing? I'm interested in how well your flood/drain beds do with filtration over time. I looked at Rob Bob's RAS system but he had several different filters in there. The flood/drain is a much simpler solution IMHO.

On the topic of electric fences I would suggest you listen to Diego's podcast @ Permaculture voices - under the Grass Fed Life - She went into a lot of detail about the newer controllers that can handle the grass load but that will also depend on what your trying to keep in. (or out) this should take you to the link: https://soundcloud.com/permaculturevoices/portable-electric-fence-for-livestock-101-with-stephanie-sexton-of-premier-1-gfl58x-1?in=permaculturevoices/sets/grass-fed-life-an-inside-view
          Updated Mock Draft - June 15th, 2010   
Latest Mock Draft after reading through various rumors and articles, as well as watching a lot of workout videos. As such, there's been a lot of shake-up in this mock compared to the last one.

1st Round:
1. Washington - John Wall (PG):
The Arenas era is over; the John Wall era has now begun. This pick is a lock now per reports.

2. Philadelphia - Evan Turner (SG/SF):
This pick could be moved so Philadelphia picks up more value as Turner and Iguodala duplicate each other’s strengths and weaknesses a little too much. I believe they would be almost equally as happy with Favors or Cousins, but right now Turner is the safer bet.

3. New Jersey - Derrick Favors (PF/C):
Lopez isn’t really a brutish player down low, but he’s a very skilled offensive player who can also step out and hit a jumper. Favors is a tough-nosed player and he has the athleticism Lopez lacks. This is a spectacular fit, though the pick is rumored to be “gettable”.

4. Minnesota - DeMarcus Cousins (C):
