Leading British luxury Motor Yacht manufacturer, Fairline Boats, will showcase the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO, alongside its elegant Squadron 50, at both the Norwalk and Annapolis boat shows this autumn.

The Fairline Chesapeake team will be on hand throughout both shows to welcome prospective and existing Fairline owners and visitors onto the stand to take a look at the models. The Fairline stand will feature an elegant hospitality area, where visitors can relax with a drink and enjoy the atmosphere of the show. 

The Targa 48GT is powered by Volvo Penta IPS matched to a dynamic new hull designed specifically for the characteristics of the IPS drive and features a beautifully spacious flybridge and newly styled interior. Fairline has developed the new trio with careful attention to global customer feedback and as a result, an array of options is available to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets.

With intelligent space-saving innovations engineered throughout the boat, the Targa 48GT provides sociable spaces with clever design touches. The electric glazed retractable roof is a standard feature of the boat, offering an ‘open, even when closed’ feel and giving owners the chance to enjoy fresh air and sunshine at the touch of a button, whether at rest or underway.

Stuart McCullough, Commercial Director at Fairline Boats, commented: “We are delighted to be showcasing the third of our 48ft models, the Targa 48GT, at this year’s Norwalk and Annapolis boat shows. This model attracted a great deal of interest at the London Boat Show earlier this year when it launched to the world. We look forward to welcoming Fairline owners and prospective customers onto the stand to experience British craftsmanship and Fairline luxury at its very best.”

In addition to allowing visitors to browse an extensive selection of luxury Motor Yachts, powerboats and sailboats, the shows will offer visitors the chance to take part in on-the water demos and boat handling clinics, sailing seminars and offers a range of activities for children.

The Squadron 48 and Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO will be showcased on the European stage for the first time, displaying the best of British craftsmanship on Fairline’s elegant stand. The Fairline team will be on hand throughout the show to welcome prospective and existing Fairline owners and visitors aboard these new models and talk them through the range’s striking design.

Fairline has developed the new 48ft trio, that also includes the Targa 48 OPEN, with careful attention to global customer feedback and as a result, an array of options is available to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets. All three models are powered by Volvo Penta IPS matched to a dynamic new hull, designed specifically for the characteristics of the IPS drive, and feature a beautifully spacious flybridge and newly styled interior.

The electric glazed retractable roof is a standard feature of the boat, offering an ‘open, even when closed’ feel and giving owners the chance to enjoy fresh air and sunshine at the touch of a button, whether at rest or underway.

Meanwhile, the fresh and ingenious design of the Squadron 48 interior ensures there is plentiful space with a voluminous saloon and large relaxed seating areas to both port and starboard. The Squadron 48 also offers numerous opportunities for relaxing in style; the flybridge offers a large seating area around an outdoor dining table which can be lowered to convert into a sunpad in addition to forward-facing seating alongside the upper helm.

Stuart McCullough, Commercial Director at Fairline Boats, commented: “We are looking forward to showcasing the Targa 48GT and Squadron 48 models at the Cannes Yachting Festival for the first time. The Cannes Yachting Festival is the gateway to the Mediterranean motor yachting world and the design of the 48ft range is perfect for the boating region. We look forward to welcoming many Fairline owners and prospective customers on board all of our boats to enjoy the best of British at this year’s show.”

The Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO, which made its world debut at the 2014 London Boat Show, will be joined by two other models in the new 48ft range, the Targa 48 OPEN and the Squadron 48. Other Fairline models on display will range from the Targa 38 to the luxurious Squadron 42 and the commanding Squadron 78 CUSTOM.

          Recruitment drive to meet high demand for luxury British boats

A constant stream of visitors at the London Boat Show earlier in the month saw the continuation of an upward sales trend for Fairline, with sales figures exceeding the previous year and strong forward order books now extending into late 2014 for some models. 

The introduction of the brand’s new 48ft range has contributed to the recent increase in demand. Powered by Volvo IPS, Fairline’s three 48ft models are manufactured at Fairline’s state-of-the-art facility in Corby, using the latest technology and production systems. All three new models feature a dynamic new hull, significant weight savings and an array of available options to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets.

The third model in this range – the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO – recently made its world debut at the London Boat Show, where it was displayed alongside the Squadron 48 and the Targa 48 OPEN. The boat features a stunning retractable hard top offering an ‘open, even when closed’ feel and intelligent space-saving innovations engineered throughout the boat.

Kevin Gaskell, CEO of Fairline, commented: “We are delighted with the success we enjoyed at this year’s London Boat Show and would like to thank our teams in Oundle and Corby for all their hard work in producing such beautiful boats. Sales were excellent at the show, showing a strong growth over last year and our impressive stand was busy with visitors throughout the show. As a result of this excellent news, we are delighted to be recruiting for roles across the factory and have been able to approach previous employees. We are all very excited about what the future holds for Fairline.”

Eshet Chayil, uma mulher de valor!

by Kohen Uriel Ben Levy


Está escrito em Bereshit/Gn 2:18

Transliteração: vayómér YHWH elohím ló´tóv heyôt haádam livaddô ééséh lô êzér kinégiddô

Tradução literal:
"E disse Yáhuéh Elohím: Não é bom que aconteça que o Ádam ("adão") esteja permanente solitário à parte e separado, farei uma que ele possa encontrar auxilio e ajuda e esteja na presença dele". Bereshit/Gn 2.18

Aqui podemos ver o seguinte, pelo conhecimento das palavras hebraicas e pelo discernimento espiritual que:


A) Elohim viu que a missão do homem não poderia ser cumprindo estando solitário, precisaria ser elaborado a partir dele uma força complementar de trabalho e criativade para o bem dele, para dividir tarefas e somar esforços, este ser criativo(a mulher) seria uma espécie de gerente, conselheiro do homem, assim o homem estaria completo e sua missão divina sempre teria sucesso e progresso


B) Quando Yah planeja e executa a criação da Isháh(mulher), Ele a faz já de uma fonte, ou seja, o homem foi quem gerou a mulher apartir da intervenção de Elohim, quando ele diz "ééséh" "Farei", já indica qual é a natureza deste ser gerado apartir do homem, seria um ser cheio de criatividade, trabalho, produção, um ser belo, mas também muito disciplinado, cuja missão ou SUB-MISSÃO era fazer que o trabalho do Homem fosse sempre criativo. produtivo, prospero e fértil.


C) Elohim faz da mulher uma "êzér", isto é " ajudadora, auxiliadora, companheira", sempre que homem necessitasse de "ajuda, auxílio, e companhia (sexual,moral, afetiva) encontraria em sua companheira, sem precisar de uma outra,, pois YAH criou apenas UMA para homem, e não duas!.


D) quer dizer o texto, que o ser feito( a mulher), é do mesmo genero do homem, criado dos mesmos membros, mas que tem uma força criativa incrível, porém, ela para cumprir sua missão, deve está na PRESENÇA DO HOMEM, isto é, em SUB-MISSÃO, submetida ao comando do homem, a liderança do homem, pois sem a liderança do homem que é o Rôsh(o cabeça), ela poderá dissipar suas forças para o mal, quebrando assim sua missão e trazendo grande infortúnio para sua missão e para aquele que está ao seu lado, antes de mais nada, a mulher deve sua vida ao homem que a gerou! então deve mostrar ao seu gerador de vida LEALDADE, E PRONTA PARA OBECEDER ORDENS INTELIGENTE E DE SABEDORIA VINDO DO HOMEM! por isso que os homens não podem ser tolos! pois tolos não dão ordens inteligente e de sabedoria, e mulheres criativas não se submetem a homens tolos! mulheres só se submetem a homens sábios e inteligentes e machos também!


E) A Torah utiliza a palavra "kinégiddô" que tem também estes significas: "estár diante", "na presença", e em "oposição a". Qual o significado?


Que se o homem fugir de sua meta missionária, ELA DEVE COM TERNURA SE OPOR PARA O BEM DO HOMEM, aconselha-lo com sabedoria,perspicácia e desenvoltura, para que o mesmo possa refletir e voltar a sua posição original de Rósh, provedor, gerador e cumpridor das leis e principios que regem o universo, para que o meio ambiente em que vive como rei, possas permanecer sempre em harmonia e em shalom completo. Todavia, a mulher, por sua beleza e criatividade, tende a cair em soberba e vaidade, desta forma, a oposição que ela poderia usar para o bem do homem, podem se tornar desgraça e morte para o homem! pois como Rósh de sua vida, a mulher deve sempre consultar ao homem em tudo que venha fazer, não deve impor nada ao homem, mas deve está sempre em lealdade e obediencia aquele que lhe gerou a vida por meio do poder de YHWH!
Sabemos porém que a mulher caiu no conto do vigarista haSatan, o vendedor dos "comésticos" "cobra venenosa", que oferecia "vida eterna" por meio de um fruto ( se parece com o zeca urubú querendo enrrolar o pica pau!) e esta sem consultar seu lider, adquiriu o fruto venenoso e usou seu poder de criatividade, inteligencia, argumento, sexualidade para impor a seu lider sua vaidade e cobiça! trazendo desgraça a ambos! Antes que encerre meus comentários, louvamos YHWH que enviou seu filho amado YAHSHUA haMashiach para trazer a VIDA DO ETERNO e salvar o homem! e como ele o Mashiach veio para resgatar e redimir o homem? vejamos:

"
E porei inimizade entre ti e a mulher, e entre a tua semente e a sua semente; esta te ferirá a cabeça, e tu lhe ferirás o calcanhar". GN 3:15

"No entanto, haverá um remédio para os filhos da mulher, mas para ti, serpente, não deve haver medicina: mas para eles se preparaá um remédio para o calcanhar nos dias do Rei Messias" Targum Yerushalaim de Gn 3.15


Assim como, o homem pelo poder de Yah gerou a mulher e lhe deu vida ("osso do meu osso, sangue do meu sangue"), agora a mulher recebeu uma grande missão, ela deveria GERAR O ULTIMO ADÃO, O CELESTIAL, para que pudesse salvar e dá vida do eterno aos homens! e trazer a VACINA contra o veneno do pecado! Vejamos outras profecias e o cumprimento:

"
Portanto o mesmo YHWH vos dará um sinal: Eis que a virgem conceberá, e dará à luz um filho, e chamará o seu nome Emanuel".Isaías 7:14

"
Eis que a virgem conceberá, e dará à luz um filho, E chamá-lo-ão pelo nome de IMANU-EL, Que traduzido é: Elohím conosco".Mateus 1:23

"A uma virgem desposada com um homem, cujo nome era Yôsef, da casa de David; e o nome da virgem era Míriam". Lucas 1:27

"Mas, vindo a plenitude dos tempos, Elohím enviou seu Filho, nascido de mulher, nascido sob a Torah". Gálatas 4:4

O Rabbi Yahshua de Netzaret implantou com grande sucesso a escola dos Netzarim, que foi a 25ª escola dos profetas de Israel, que recebeu alunos de todas as demais escolas, pois o Rabinato de Yahshua no momento é abrangente, é de redimir e não condenar, e de ajuntar e não espalhar!
Uma das grandes reformas que o Rabinu fez, foi admitir em seu círculos de estudantes, discípulas(talmidot) mulheres! algo impensável nos circulos farizaico e saduceu! As discípulas exerceram um papel importante na obra e ministério de Yahshua, primeiro que ele nasceu de uma mulher! depois curou diversas mulheres! e poor fim as admitiu nos estudos da torah e da profecia! Assim como as mulheres foram brilhantes no auxílio e execução dos materiais e objetos do Mishkan "tabernáculo", da mesma forma foram generosas no auxílio do ministério de Yahshua, ajudando-o em sua missão, confirmemos pois:

E aconteceu, depois disto, que andava de cidade em cidade, e de aldeia em aldeia, pregando e anunciando o evangelho do reino de YHWH; e os doze iam com ele,
E algumas mulheres que haviam sido curadas de espíritos malignos e de enfermidades: Míriam de magdala, da qual saíram sete demônios; E Ionáh, mulher de Cuza, procurador de Herodes, e Shoshanah, e muitas outras que o serviam com seus bens. Lucas 8:1,2

As mulheres foram grandes auxiliadoras e provedoras do Ministério do Rei Yahushua! baruch haShem YHWH!
Que grandes discípulas!

E as mulheres, que tinham vindo com ele da Galiléia, seguiram também e viram o sepulcro, e como foi posto o seu corpo.
E, voltando elas, prepararam especiarias e ungüentos; e no Shabat repousaram, conforme o mandamento. Lucas 23:55,56


Que mulheres obedientes a YHWH!


Para encerrar, vejamos que a mulher tem grande responsábilidade espiritual, em que deve cumprir seja na qualidade de moça, virgem, esposa,mãe, e membra da Comunidade de Israel. Ambos, Homens e Mulheres tem que individualmente e coletivamente entrar e observar os princípios da Aliança de YHWH Elohím com a Comunidade eleita de Israel. Leiamos a Torah:


Guardai, pois, as palavras desta aliança, e cumpri-as, para que prospereis em tudo quanto fizerdes.
Vós todos estais hoje perante o YHWH vosso Elohím; os capitães de vossas tribos, vossos anciãos, e os vossos oficiais, todos os homens de Israel; Os vossos meninos, as vossas mulheres, e o estrangeiro que está no meio do vosso arraial; desde o rachador da vossa lenha até ao tirador da vossa água; Para entrardes na aliança do YHWH teu Elohím, e no seu juramento que o YHWH teu Elohím hoje faz convosco. Devarim/Deut 29:9-12


Admoesto com amor, que as mulheres nestes aharit hayamim/ultimos días, neste olam hazéh/no mundo presente, em que a união entre um homem e uma mulher está sendo violentada por uma poderosa mídia de mentiras e falsidades com o objetivo em desestimular e menosprezar a atração, o amor e o casamento entre um homem e uma mullher, nunca que a união heterossexual foi tão atacada e banalizada nestes últimos dias! Então há um sistema que se opõe ao plano de Yah para com homem e para com a mulher, e este plano é a Família!
A União HETEROSEXUAL É o único modelo divino de continuação e preservação da vida, do amor, do gozo, da fertilidade, do progresso e das bençãos de Yah sobre a Família que deve ser edificada de acordo com os fundamentos da Torah, a Palavra de YHWH, e por causa desta fidelidade ao plano de YHWH, será e continuará sendo derramadas bênçãos sobre a Família, bênçãos da vida do eterno sobre o meio ambiente em que o homem completo vive! homem e mulher os Criou!!!
Quero dizer, que do ponto de vita metafísico e místico, YHWH se casará com sua Noiva a nova Yahushalaim(jerusalém) , leal, submissa, fiel e pura, que lhe dará uma Multidão de Filhos benditos( que são as nações redimidas!) Aconselho as Varoas exercitarem seus dons em Yahshua, assim saberão cumprir a Sub-missão como auxiliadoras e ajudadoras criativas, fazendo prosperar os vossos Esposos! Da mesma forma aos Varões aconselho que exercitem os dons em Yahshua, e o maior dos dons é o amor, Sacrifiquem-se! Aprendam e pratiquem o amor para com vossas Esposas!
Chamo todas as mulheres, tres vezes ao dia, para recitarem o Shema (Deut 6:4-9) e auxiliarem no serviço das rezas e orações, pois YAH lhes deu o dom de auxiliadoras, ajudadoras, consoladoras e conselheiras sábias, e também o maior de todos os dons, que é o dom de gerar uma vida, chamamos as mulheres para pôr o véu como sinal da autoridade dos esposos, que grande humildade! chamamos estas bravas mulheres para estarem usandos vestimentas especiais, sem vaidade, sem luxúria, porém sempre belas,humildes, com tzitzit, com ternura, doçura e generosidade, sim, as chamamos para serem uma tremenda benção como provedoras do Ministério do Rei Yahushua haMashiach, vosso Amo, Amo de Israel.
Hallelu Yah!

Eshet Chayl! uma mulher de valor!

El articulista es una persona de inteligencia común, más en este artículo pongo en duda su capacidad de pensar atendiendo al siguiente párrafo: “A Alfredo Thorne un audio lo derribó.

          Tsuki ga capitulo 136   
Poner las ventajas y desventajas como prioridad a la hora de pensar es algo desagradable.

A decir verdad, no queda conmigo.

Los tiempos cuando estaba en el baldío sin saber nada eran en realidad más tranquilos.

En este momento, incluso si trato de volver a esos tiempos, no voy a poder hacerlo.

Si yo fuera lo suficientemente hábil como para actuar dentro de las cosas que sé y que no, no estaría en esta situación en la que estoy en un problema.

–¡Raidou-dono, he estado buscándole! Es bueno ver que estás a salvo. –

[Ustedes dos también. No es como que algo haya ocurrido aquí aún, por lo que no es tan extraño]

–… Eso es claramente un estado anormal. Parece estar todavía en medio de una transformación. Usted está verdaderamente calmado. Parece que también hay algo ocurriendo en la ciudad. Todos escucharon la situación afuera, vieron esa cosa y entraron en pánico. –(Rembrandt)

[No, si esto es un escenario de combate, ya estoy acostumbrado a ello, eso es todo. Bueno, tengo un montón de preocupaciones sobre tantas cosas que carece mi tienda, así que no estoy tan tranquilo como usted piensa]

–Todavía no entendemos la situación, ¿pero sabe algo? Desde el momento en que mis hijas se fueron, no se han mostrado de nuevo. Esto hace que sea difícil movernos. Y es por eso que estoy aquí, pero… –(Rembrandt)

Parece Rembrandt-san entiende más o menos la razón de este pánico.

Él y su esposa no parecen estar tan nerviosos.

¿Tal vez se sientan seguros porque Tomoe y Mio están aquí?

¿O es que los comerciantes habilidosos son capaces de entender este tipo de situaciones y racionalmente pueden ponerlo en orden?

Sea lo que sea, su calma es diferente de la mía que es una simple compostura derivada de mi método de defensa llamado violencia.

[La mayoría de la información que tenemos es que, en la ciudad, hay monstruos como ese que apareció arrasando. Sif-ojosan y Yuno-ojosan parecen haberse agrupado con sus compañeros y están planeando hacer algo sobre ese ex Ilumgand. Shiki oyó hablar de eso con la transmisión de pensamiento]

–En el lugar de trabajo de Raidou-dono, todos los empleados saben cómo utilizar la transmisión de pensamiento ¿correcto? Poder tener una comunicación en estos momentos de crisis, que envidiable. Ya veo, ¡¡¡¿así que mis hijas están planeando hacer algo al respecto con eso?!!! R-Raidou-dono, ¡¿qué quiere decir con “algo”?! –(Rembrandt)

Asintiendo varias veces, Rembrandt-san digiere lentamente el contenido de mi comunicación escrita, pero en medio de ello, se sorprendió y claramente estaba empezando a agitarse.

Me sorprendió que estuviera tan tranquilo cuando supo que sus hijas estarían peleando, pero parece que ese no es el caso.

[Ellas ya están en esa edad, después de todo. Probablemente quieran poner a prueba sus habilidades]

–E-Eso no es bueno… Raidou-dono, eso no es bueno. Lo siento, ¿pero pueden ustedes por favor hacer algo al respecto. Como que… ¿usted puede habilidosamente hacer frente a esta situación? En primer lugar, no es necesario que prueben sus habilidades en esta clase de situación. Cierto, he oído que hay una fuerza como una tropa que está formada por la Academia por el bien del orden público. Es cierto. Desde el principio, es extraño que los estudiantes peleen. –(Rembrandt)

É-Él de repente empezó a ponerse nervioso.

Mientras estaba totalmente nervioso, murmuraba una y otra vez.

… Su esposa también tiene una mirada como si estuviera pensando en algo, pero parece como que no está tan agitada.

En esta clase de momentos, los padres normalmente se ponen muy protectores, pero se ve bastante tranquila.

–… Raidou-sama, usted es su sensei y no está aterrado al respecto, así que mi marido y yo no estamos tan preocupados por nuestras hijas. –

Tal vez se dio cuenta de algo de mi mirada, me habló.

No espera, su marido está completamente preocupado.

Incluso ahora no está mostrando signos de calmarse.

–Además, el grupo de Raidou-sama está aquí después de todo.Estoy seguro de que no se producirá el peor de los casos.Esas chicas también, algún día aprenderán que no importa la cantidad de poder que adquieran por sí mismas, hay una realidad contra la que no pueden hacer nada.Si ese día pasa a ser hoy, no se puede evitar.En realidad, estoy feliz de que usted esté de pie a su lado en ese momento.Incluso si este hombre se ve nervioso, él no lo está realmente. –

… Aterrador.

O más bien, no es como si ella creyera ciegamente en las posibilidades de sus hijas.

“Ellas algún día comprenderán sus límites, por lo que es mejor hacer que sientan esa frustración” ¿es lo que está tratando de decir?

Esta mujer, está diciendo algo realmente espartano.

A primera vista, su cuerpo parece estar tranquilo, pero cuando se lo ve de cerca, sus manos que se agarraban estaban temblando, por lo que probablemente se está forzando a sí misma.

En el caso de esta pareja, el padre es el especialista en consentir.

Las dos son chicas, así que, como padre, ser estrictos con ellas es difícil, ¿o algo por el estilo?

Al ver a su mujer poniendo su mano izquierda sobre su derecha y con fuerza en ellas, pensé de esta manera.

[Me alegra que tengan fe en nosotros. No es como si siempre pueda estar a su lado, así que esta vez, voy a asumir la responsabilidad y protegerlas adecuadamente. Y la pareja casada, ¿qué van a hacer a partir de ahora? Este lugar no es muy peligroso, así que si no tienen ningún asunto en particular, les sugiero que se queden aquí]

–… Ya veo. Cariño ¡Cariño! –

–No, si llega lo peor, podemos reunir mercenarios del gremio de comerciantes y… – (Rembrandt)

–¡¡Ca-ri-ño!! –

–¡¡Uo!! ¿Q-Qué pasa, Lisa? En este momento estoy pensando en cómo resolver esta situación como verás. –(Rembrandt)

–Raidou-sama estará cuidando de este lugar, así que es seguro. Y entonces, este lugar es seguro, pero nos preguntó lo que vamos a hacer ahora. –(Lisa)

–¿Q-Qué? Ya veo. Raidou-dono va a. Fuuuh. –(Rembrandt)

¿Qué hay con ese “fuuuh…”?

Incluso trajo las palabras “gremio de comerciantes” que no quiero escuchar en este momento.

Además, mercenarios.

De hecho he oído que se pueden contratar mercenarios baratos en el gremio.

Es más barato que ir por ahí pidiéndole a cada aventurero que ayuden en el transporte de mercancías, así que he oído de muchos comerciantes utilizan este método.

Aunque es algo que no me concierne, por lo que no conozco los detalles.

Después de que la esposa de Rembrandt-san le habló, parece que se calmó.

–¿Qué debemos hacer? Está también la cuestión de las chicas, por lo que creo que es una buena idea quedarse aquí, ¿qué te parece? –(Lisa)

–… No, vamos a tratar de ir al gremio una vez. –(Rembrandt)

–¿Al gremio? ¿No fuimos hace unos días? Además, incluso si vamos ahora con esta situación, no creo que podamos esperar una recepción decente. –(Lisa)

Es exactamente como dice ella.

Además, teniendo en cuenta que estaré en el panorama y que no me importa que algunas chispas  vuelen hacia ese lugar, que él vaya al gremio de comerciantes no es algo que me gustaría mucho.

–No creo que el gremio de comerciantes de aquí esté acostumbrado a este tipo de situaciones. Además, he experimentado varias batallas en Tsige y he tomado el mando en ellas. Así que debería poder ayudar en reducir la cantidad de daño. –(Rembrandt)

¿Q-Qué ha dicho?

Sólo hace unos momentos su mente estaba completamente llena con sus hijas, y sin embargo dice eso de repente.

Mientras estaba pensando en eso, Rembrandt-san se dirigió desde su esposa hacia mí.

–Si este lugar estará protegido por Raidou-dono, no tengo que preocuparme sobre mis hijas para nada. Además, no es como que no conozca al representante del gremio de aquí. –(Rembrandt)

–El representante de este lugar… ah, Zara-san. Cariño, fuiste a reunirte con él antes ¿verdad? –(Lisa)

Zara.

Ese representante, si no recuerdo mal, tenía ese nombre.

No sólo Rembrandt-san, su esposa también es una conocida de él eh.

Jah… Todavía suspiro con sólo recordar su rostro.

–U-Umu. De todas formas, si mi familia está a salvo, tengo que hacer lo que pueda. No hay pérdida en ayudar al gremio de comerciantes, y esta es la ciudad donde mis hijas están. Por lo tanto, Raidou-dono, me dirigiré al gremio de comerciantes para ayudar a resolver este pánico. –(Rembrandt)

–… No se puede evitar. En ese caso, voy a acompañarte. –(Lisa)

–L-Lisa, no me importa si te quedas- –(Rembrandt)

–Voy a ir. Estoy más acostumbrada a situaciones duras que las personas del gremio de aquí. Además, me gustaría dar mis saludos a Zara-san. Ha sido un largo tiempo. –(Lisa)

Por alguna razón, Rembrandt-san quiere ir solo.

¿Hay algún tipo de inconveniente si su mujer va allí?

Esta es la ciudad donde sus hijas asisten, así que en el caso de esta persona, él no tendría ningún asunto ni nada de eso.

En primer lugar, él está loco por su mujer.

Pero, ¿los dos intentan dejar el recinto del torneo?

¿Qué debería hacer? La elección en la que tengo méritos…

….

Ah, ¡carajo!

¡Al carajo con poner las ventajas y desventajas como prioridad!

¡Ya estoy en mi límite!

Tengo una deuda de gratitud con ellos.

Quiero protegerlos.

Quiero que estén a salvo.

Entonces, eso es suficiente para mí.

Compruebo mi entorno.

Parece que todavía hay personas en los asientos de los invitados.

Además, aún hay unas pocas personas que quedan.

En ese caso, sería malo hacerlo “aquí”.

–Raidou-dono, lo siento pero, le dejaré mis hijas a su cuidado. Si se las dejo a usted, no tengo por qué dudar. Voy a tratar de hacer lo que pueda. Es lo que estoy diciendo, pero sólo voy a estar creando un favor, jajaja. –(Rembrandt)

–Entonces, hasta luego. Nos vamos. –(Lisa)

[Esperen. Voy con ustedes medio camino]

No hay ninguna garantía de que nada les vaya a pasar si los dejo ir solos.

Pongámosle una escolta.

No quiero que las pocas personas en quienes puedo confiar se enfrenten al peligro.

… Si fuera a entrar al lado de los demonios, voy a tener que ayudar a Rembrandt-san desde detrás, o puede que también se enfrenten al peligro.

Bueno, eso se lo dejare para cuando realmente tenga que pensar en ello.

Parecían estar un poco desconcertados por un momento, pero la pareja casada aceptó que los acompañara.

Le ordene a Tomoe que teletransporte a Eva-san y a Ruria a la tienda por transmisión de pensamiento.

Después de confirmar que Tomoe asintió, dejo a todos y sigo a Rembrandt-san.

Dejando los asientos del público, continuamos por un pasillo oscuro.

[¿Ustedes dos están en buenos términos con que el representante-dono?]

–Buenos términos… Es una relación complicada. Lo que puedo decir con certeza es que tenemos una relación inseparable. –(Rembrandt)

–Hubo un momento en que ambos cuidaban sus respectivas tiendas. Eran vecinos. –(Lisa)

–¡Lisa! –(Rembrandt)

–¿No está bien? No es algo que ocultar. Además, ustedes dos son como una masa de éxito, y eran similares. –(Lisa)

Rembrandt-san era eh.

No puedo imaginarlo.

Y parece que la conexión del representante y Rembrandt-san es más profunda de lo que pensaba.

En un lado, aliados y compañeros que pueden confiar entre sí.

Por otro lado, son contundentes y se desprecian entre sí.

Qué cosa misteriosa.

[Ya veo. Ese tipo es implacable dependiendo de la persona, a un nivel extraordinario. Daba la imagen de una persona bien comerciante, por lo que es un poco sorprendente oír que es similar a Rembrandt-san]

–… Fue ayer eh. El día que se reunió con él. Usted dijo que estaba con problemas con el negocio. Parece que le dijo algo. –(Rembrandt)

[Yo no era consciente de mi falta de conocimiento y la fricción en mi entorno]

–Hablé con él un poco sobre usted y sus seguidores de antemano. Parece que no le llegó adecuadamente. Lo siento. –(Rembrandt)

[No se preocupe. No es algo por lo que tengas que disculparte. Fue la prueba que me faltaba, después de todo]

–Se trata de ti cariño, ¿así que no le habrás dicho cosas vagas a Zara-san? –(Lisa)

–Se trata de información personal de Raidou-dono después de todo. No puedo fácilmente decir los detalles, Lisa. Fumu, si no le llegó, debe haber actuado de manera muy ruda. –(Rembrandt)

[Por desgracia, parece que ni siquiera me trató como un comerciante. Fue realmente una vergüenza]

–Aun cuando es así, él también tiene una parte amable, pero él es del tipo que sólo le falta vocabulario. Hay momentos en los que es malentendido. –(Rembrandt)

¿Malentendido?

No estaba en ese nivel. El abusó completamente.

Bueno, no hay duda de que no esperaba nada de mí, así que definitivamente no es un malentendido.

Rembrandt-san parece conocerlo muy bien.

–Él estaba haciendo un negocio más agradable que Cariño. Tú eras más del tipo que viene en silencio desde atrás y ataca. Aunque es cierto que su boca era una gran desventaja para él. –(Lisa)

–Lisa, ¿siento malicia allí? ¿No me acabo de ocupar hábilmente del asunto? –(Rembrandt)

Hábilmente.

Como era de esperar, el mundo de los comerciantes no es simple.

Yo fui demasiado indulgente.

[Son viejos conocidos eh]

–Sí. Desde hace mucho tiempo. Morris también conoce bien a Zara, y también han competido entre ellos. Me he dado cuenta al final que mi familia es lo más importante, por lo que ya he dibujado una línea, pero él todavía no está casado y sólo ha estado viviendo en el mundo de los negocios. Tal vez debido a que su sentido del olfato se ha vuelto más opaco, o podría ser debido a que no le gusta mi sombra, parece que mostró una mala actitud hacia Raidou-dono. –(Rembrandt)

[Así que eso es lo que era. Me dijo que era demasiado rápido como para que trabaje aquí, así que vuelve a Tsige y retírate como comerciante]

–Fuh… Él no va a decirlo amablemente ¿verdad? “Regresa y haz que tu colega te cuide” sería más bien lo que hubiera querido decir. Bueno, si es así como usted lo tomó sería grandioso para él. –(Rembrandt)

Conoce realmente bien a ese tipo.

Sinceramente, le dije a Rembrandt-san que lo dijo de esa manera, pero en realidad, lo que saque de las palabras de ese tipo fue en su mayoría “desaparece de aquí granuja”.

–Esa es la manera de decir de Zara. Ara, ya estamos fuera. Raidou-sama, hasta aquí está bien, el resto podemos ir nosotros mismos. Por favor, cuida de nuestras hijas. –(Lisa)

–Umu. Incluso si tengo este aspecto, sé autodefensa. No se preocupe. También voy a hablar correctamente con el representante Zara. –(Rembrandt)

No, no era como si me quejara ni nada.

Pero bien, debe haber sonado como una queja hacia ellos.

Jah… Verdaderamente estoy siendo cuidado por Rembrandt-san.

Tengo que reflexionar en ello.

Pues bien, vamos a la tarea principal. Invocar una escolta.

[Por favor esperen. Pensé que iba a llamar la atención en donde estábamos antes, por lo que los acompañé hasta aquí. Pero ya que estamos aquí, me gustaría traer una escolta para ustedes dos]

–¿Escolta? –

–¿Se refiere a uno de sus seguidores? Pero todos están en donde estábamos antes. –

Sin responder a la pareja casada, creo una puerta de niebla.

A simple vista, sólo se vio como una nubosidad del tamaño de un cuerpo, pero apareció a mi lado.

De allí, apareció una sombra, y una forma lentamente se hace más clara.

Cuando dos hombres lagartos con hermosas escamas aparecieron de la niebla, la pareja tragaron aliento.

Sorprendidos de que dos mamonos aparecieron de repente.

Parece que estaban abrumados por su presencia y su comportamiento del que uno puede sentir inteligencia de ellos.

[Como pueden ver, estos son mamonos que he invocados. Poseen una poder fiable, así que por favor vayan con ellos. Si por casualidad son atacados, estos dos resultarán ser extraordinariamente útiles. En público, sólo digan que uno de ustedes utilizó alguna herramienta mágica para invocarlos]

–A-Ahora que lo mencionas, Raidou-dono era capaz de utilizar invocación mágica. No esperaba que aparecieran al instante, así que quedé realmente sorprendido. –(Rembrandt)

[Pueden comprender el lenguaje común, por lo que si quieren darles órdenes, con sólo decirlo normalmente funcionará. Por cierto, el que sostiene una lanza es Azu- quiero decir, Fia; y el que tiene un arco es Hyun]

Coordinando con mi presentación, ambos lagartos de neblina se arrodillaron frente a la pareja.

Parece que desde que es mi orden, la siguen.

Estoy agradecido.

Parece que la pareja también se calmó después de ver la forma en que actuaron.

–Ellos pueden entender palabras eh. Eso es fiable. Raidou-sama, muchas gracias. –(Lisa)

–Sí. Permíteme expresar mi agradecimiento. Gracias. –(Rembrandt)

[Por favor, manténganse a salvo. Vamos a encontrarnos más adelante]

Hice que los Lagartos de neblina 4 y 5 actúen como guardaespaldas de la pareja.

Planeo hacer que el número 3 trabaje junto con los estudiantes, así que tal vez debería ponerle un nombre como hace un momento.

Los dos nombres que les di recién fueron improvisados, pero fue más bien como unos nombres en código por lo que no debería haber ningún problema.

Viendo a la pareja irse, regreso al recinto del torneo, donde los estudiantes probablemente ya están combatiendo.

          Lazy Dungeon Master capitulo 129   
La santa escribió una carta. ¿Qué debería hacer…?

Cuando le di un vistazo, parecía que el contenido decía que yo les daría el derecho de destruir el dungeon core, junto con la solicitud de apoyo financiero, pero… pensando en cuánto DP y fondos nos estaba proporcionando, no puedo decir que eso sea algo malo.

Sin embargo, sería algo realmente malo si el Reino Sagrado comenzara a ponernos el ojo encima.

Una dungeon que gane la atención del Reino Sagrado, cuya doctrina dice “destruye dungeons”… tendría una esperanza de vida más baja. Literalmente.

Debido a eso, llamé a Rokuko para tomar algunas contramedidas.

— Kehma, fisgoneando en una habitación donde está una chica, ¿ese tipo de cosas son tu hobby?

Se me quedó mirando con ojos considerablemente fríos. Que fastidio. Es reconocimiento del enemigo, ¿sabes?

Síp, es porque es una enemiga. No es como si quisiera observar sus piernas bien formadas y sus descalzos e indefensos pies o algo así. Si realmente lo quisiera, me podría complacer con Meat o Ichika, así que no es como si me estuviera muriendo de hambre.

— Entonces, ¿un plan para qué? ¿Para no dejar que obtengan fondos?

— Buena suposición, Rokuko. Es correcto. Espera… no puede ser, ¿eres una impostora?

— No, es obvio que sabría eso… la pregunta es cómo podemos evitar que obtengan el dinero. ¿Reemplazar las cartas? ¿O tal vez detengamos las entregas?

— ¿Estás bien? ¿¡Te sientes enferma!?

Rokuko estaba siendo inusualmente brillante. Coloqué el dorso de mi mano en su frente para asegurarse de que no tuviera fiebre.

— ¡Oye, no estoy enferma! ¡No me menosprecies tanto!

— Estabas algo caliente…

— ¡Es tu imaginación!

— ¿Es así? Entonces está bien. Estaba preocupado porque repentinamente te volviste inteligente.

— Aunque estoy feliz de que te preocupes por mí. Fufun, podrías alagarme más, ¿sabes?

Muy bien, ahora ha vuelto a ser Rokuko.

— Entonces, ¿qué vas a hacer? Fuera de la dungeon sería difícil detener las entregas de los aventureros después de que acepten la comisión. Cierto, podríamos tomarlas cuando se las entreguen al gremio de aventureros.

— Darle al gremio la responsabilidad del problema suena como que sería problemático de varias formas. Incluso si las reemplazamos, las cartas van cerradas con sellos de cera…

Cuando puso las cartas en los sobres, la santa las estampó con su sello. Con eso, sería obvio si fueran manipuladas.

— Para eso, ¿no estaría bien si la magia de Kehma arreglara el sello? Podrías romper el sello y luego repararlo después, ¿cierto? Ah, pero si hay un efecto mágico en el sello de cera no podrías mostrar tu técnica, necesitaríamos otro también, ¿no?

— Hey, Rokuko.

— ¿Qué? ¿Se ha reavivado tu amor por mí?

— Tú… … … ¿eres la verdadera Rokuko?

— ¿¡Qué si soy la verdadera!? ¡Qué grosero, pienso que ya es demasiado!

— Lo entiendo, entonces muéstrame tu pie y lo confirmaré.

— ¿¡Puedes confirmarlo con eso!? Bueno, aunque realmente no sé por qué necesitas mi pie… T-toma.

Quitándose una de sus medias, Rokuko expuso su pie… Fuuu. Me tomé mi tiempo validándolo, pero ella es la verdadera. A decir verdad, los pies de Rokuko no tienen ninguna marca especial en absoluto, pero sé que es ella. Para ser exacto, lo confirmé mirando la función del mapa del menú.

Bueno, aunque estaría en problemas si se tratara de un imitador. ¿Se comió algo que apareció en la gacha, como una fruta de la sabiduría o algo así?

— No hay dudas, eres la verdadera Rokuko.

— Es lo que te he estado diciendo… así que, ¿tienes un plan?

— … Sí, lo tengo. Pondré una queja.

Mi plan era extremadamente simple.

También escribiríamos cinco cartas, enviándolas a la misma dirección que las de la santa.

Debido a que serían a la misma dirección, los aventureros que tomaran su comisión naturalmente iban a tomar la nuestra también debido al beneficio. El gremio incluso podría recomendar a la gente que las aceptasen de forma conjunta.

De esta forma no tendríamos que obstruir las cartas de la santa para nada.

Si se convierte en una situación en la que ninguna de las cartas de la santa llega, tampoco lo harán nuestras quejas, pero en ese caso no hay problema en absoluto.

— Heeh, el plan de Kehma es diferente después de todo.

— Pero, ¿quién iría a leer una carta del jefe de aldea cuyo pueblo ni siquiera tiene un nombre? Ese es el único hueco en el plan. Y así, Rokuko, tú lo harás.

— ¿Yo?

— Eres la hermana menor de Haku-san. Es decir, la hermana menor de Haku Raverio, ancestro del imperio.

— ¡Oh, puedo pedir prestada la influencia de Haku Ane-sama, ¿eh?!

En particular, dado que este es el lugar favorito de Haku-san. Probablemente no habría ningún problema en usar su nombre para esto… Más bien, “la hermana menor de Haku-san” podría ser un título más influyente que el de “la santa en quiebra”.

Y debido a eso, usando el nombre de Rokuko, preparamos cinco cartas para que coincidieran con las de la santa.

Su contenido: [Estamos preocupados debido al apetito voraz de la santa que está acabando con nuestras raciones de invierno, sin importarle los costos. Le hemos estado vendiendo porque somos un negocio, pero hay un límite para esas cosas. ¿Podrían por favor decirle eso a ella de forma indirecta, como sus gobernantes?].

Era una petición, una escrita de forma grandilocuente.

Lo sellaremos con cera y lo estamparemos con el sello imperial.

En verdad, es algo que Haku-san nos dio cuando Rokuko le escribió cartas de [Solicitud]. Aunque lo estamos usando para comunicarnos directamente con Haku-san a través de cartas… tomar prestado algo usado para hablar directamente con Haku-san es muy aterrador.

Por otra parte, incluso si tomamos prestado el sello imperial, tengo la sensación de que estaría bien dado que Haku-san dijo: “Este sello es para que Rokuko lo use en lo que quiera”.

… Si posteriormente le enviamos a Haku-san una nota de agradecimiento de parte de Rokuko, definitivamente se alegrará. Definitivamente. Síp. Definitivamente tomaría ventaja de ello, si muestro debilidad aquí, así que terminaré con un agradecimiento unilateral.

Parece que las cartas fueron terminadas mientras pensaba en eso, las cinco fueron completadas.

— Quedaron perfectas. Aunque escribir cinco cartas con el mismo contenido es agotador.

— Buen trabajo. Bueno, con esto estaremos haciendo algo respecto a las cartas de la santa… me apresuraré para asegurarme que sean aceptadas junto a las de ella.

— Sí, por favor.

El asistente acababa de salir del gremio, dejando las cartas de la santa. Me apresuré a adentrarme al gremio, llevando las cartas que Rokuko escribió.

La comisión fue aceptada fácilmente por recepcionista-san del gremio, que pidió la cuota para las cinco cartas… además de ser entregadas en otro país, la tarifa era un poco cara debido a que quería que fueran tomadas junto a la otra comisión, cinco monedas de plata en total. Cinco de plata no se siente como un gran desembolso en este punto, ¿eh?

Después de eso, el panfleto del encargo fue colocado en el tablón de anuncios. Fue colocado cerca de la de las cartas de la santa, un poco arriba para ser exactos. Con esto, probablemente serán tomadas en conjunto.

Además, la tarea de llegar a donde guardaban las cartas de la santa dentro del gremio habría sido un fracaso… Fueron guardados en la caja fuerte del gremio, así que no hubiera sido capaz de tomarlas. Es más, hay una restricción que hace que no pueda usar la función de recolección del dungeon para quitarle las cosas a otras personas cuando yo quiera, ¿eh?… Bueno, si fuera capaz de hacerlo, podría seguir la salvaje estrategia de hacer algo como quitarle la armadura y las armas a los guerreros en mitad del combate.

Preparar cartas por nosotros mismos fue la opción correcta.

— Fufufu, ¡el plan de Kehma era el correcto, tal como esperaba!

— S-sí.

Aunque no fui capaz de usar su plan de manipular las cartas… ¿Rokuko luce feliz por alguna razón?

…Pero incluso así, sin dinero, ¿eh? ¿Cuánto más duraran los fondos de la santa?

Tal vez sería mejor hacer algo para aprovecharme de ella.

          orang dengan nilai IQ paling menakjubkan   
Banyak orang-orang yang sangat cerdas di dunia ini, dan mungkin saja Anda tidak mengetahui siapa sajakah ?

Orang paling Cerdas di Dunia

orang paling cerdas di dunia ini. Orang-orang dengan tingkat kecerdasan yang dapat dikategorikan sebagai orang yang jenius biasanya dapat diukur dengan nilai IQ nya. Jadi, apakah IQ ini? Anda mungkin sering mendengarnya, tapi tidak pernah benar-benar mengetahui apa itu IQ? Berdasarkan Wikipedia, IQ atau Intelligent Quotient merupakan suatu nilai atau skor yang didapat dari beberapa tes standar yang dirancang untuk mengukur tingkat kecerdasan seseorang. Skor rata-rata orang pada umumnya berkisar di 85 hingga 114. 



Sementara bila Anda memiliki skor yang lebih dari 140, maka Anda termasuk orang yang memiliki IQ tinggi. Jadi bagaimana dengan orang yang jenius? Orang-orang yang disebut jenius ini biasanya memiliki nilai IQ di atas 160. Albert Einstein adalah salah satu orang yang diperkirakan memiliki nilai IQ 160 dan ia telah menjadi sang penemu teori relativitas.

saat ini dengan nilai IQ yang mendukungnya dapat dilihat dari beberapa daftar acak berikut ini seperti yang dilansir oleh finance.yahoo dan <i>the richest, mereka mungkin dapat menjawab apapun dari aritmatika sederhana hingga pertanyaan yang paling rumit sekalipun. Siapa sajakah mereka ini?

Dengan IQ yang sangat luar biasa yaitu 230, Terence Tao adalah seorang matematikawan.  Di umur yang bahkan orang pada umumnya masih bermain, Terence Tao mulai belajar matematika bahkan sejak masih balita dan berhasil memecahkan masalah aritmatika ketika berumur 2 tahun. Di saat berumur 9 tahun ia bahkan telah belajar matematika untuk tingkat perguruan tinggi. Penghargaan bergengsi di ajang Olimpiade matematika internasional pun sudah diraihnya saat masih berusia 13 tahun. Bahkan di umur 20, Terence sudah meraih gelar PhD nya dari Universitas Princeton. Terence sudah menjadi professor di UCLA di usianya yang ke 24. Saat ini Terence Tao adalah orang yang menduduki nilai IQ yang paling tinggi saat ini.
          Plantean microrobots que eliminan bacterias contaminantes del agua   


PV- Plantean microrobot para eliminar bacterias en el agua  Investigadores del Instituto de Bioingeniería de Cataluña (IBEC), junto con colaboradores del Max Planck for Intelligent Systems de Stuttgart, han diseñado unos diminutos robots que pueden eliminar del agua las bacterias causantes de enfermedades, como la Escherichia coli.

El estudio, publicado en la revista ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, describe el desarrollo de pequeños robots que pueden nadar en el agua y limpiar a su paso las bacterias causantes de enfermedades.

El trabajo ha sido dirigido por la investigadora postdoctoral Diana Vilela, miembro del grupo Smart Nano-Bio-Devices del IBEC.

Los robots están diseñados como partículas esféricas con dos hemisferios diferenciados: una cara está hecha con magnesio, que reacciona con el agua para producir burbujas de hidrógeno que propulsan los microbots, y la otra está formada por capas alternas de hierro y oro cubiertas por nanopartículas de plata.

Así, las bacterias se adhieren al oro y son eliminadas por las nanopartículas de plata.

“Nuestros ensayos en el laboratorio muestran que los microbots pueden navegar a través del agua durante unos 15 a 20 minutos antes de quedarse sin magnesio y, en este tiempo, son capaces de atrapar más del 80 % de las bacterias E. coli en agua con una alta concentración de ellas”, explicó Samuel Sánchez, responsable del grupo Smart Nano-Bio-Devices del IBEC.

“Después, debido a las propiedades magnéticas del hierro, los microbots pueden ser recogidos fácilmente con un imán, sin dejar ningún residuo en el agua”, especificó.

Con estos robots podría solucionarse el problema de la contaminación del agua potable, que puede causar enfermedades potencialmente mortales cuando no se dispone de un tratamiento adecuado, como ocurre en muchas zonas del mundo.

Según los investigadores, aunque el cloro u otros agentes consiguen desinfectar el agua en gran medida, algunas bacterias y otros microorganismos son muy resistentes y resultan muy difíciles de eliminar.

Además, señalan, en ocasiones los componentes de estos desinfectantes pueden ser perjudiciales para la salud humana.

Esta investigación ha sido financiada por la Alexander von Humboldt Foundation de Alemania, el European Research Council y el Max Planck Institute.

The War of Independence was not the culmination of irresistible forces but of enlightened ideas. It was the shining ideal of liberty that changed the course of history, and it remains eternally available for mankind to do so again. The path to liberty was long and arduous. Nothing came easy, and the oppressive state that ruled our forebears did not yield to eloquence, but to force. It required the steely resolve of our intellectual ancestors, men willing to pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, for the American colonists to shrug off their oppressors. The European heritage of ...

Yet we were blessed with the founders’ vision to anticipate the instability and capriciousness of mob-majority rule, and our Constitution was imbued with individual rights, sanctioned by no less than the Almighty itself. The terms democracy, freedom, and liberty are retained in our popular vernacular without meaningful engagement of the historical circumstances that gave rise to them in the culture.

Cree Egypt

A Cairene said the regime crisis

27/01/2011 The
Source: http://crisdegypte.blogs.liberation.fr/cairote/

Cairo, January 26, 2011. Second day of protests in Egypt after call webcast , and relayed by a few printed newspapers like Al Masry Al Youm and Al Shorouk. Until 25, no one knew what would happen and we joked about the revolution announced by dint of a joke. And what are you doing tomorrow? Ah, tomorrow, I revolution. But the joke was not one. We went down the street and have taken. It was so simple. Why wait so long.

The police intimidation and fear of dying tortured lead to paralysis. That is also simple to understand and that is why we cry. We live for thirty years in fear and falsehood. The Egyptians are friendly, hospitable, peaceful and a joker. Pardon me, reader. It was a lie. We live in fear. Fear of displeasing. Fear of dying of hunger. Afraid to say something wrong and being raped, beaten, humiliated in a police station or in the street before our families and our neighbors. No, reader, Egypt is not alone in moderate Middle East is one of the most sophisticated didacture, the finest, most skillful and most vicious. His talent as despicable? Control information and control what you, outside, think of it. The real talent of Egypt is that of a Master senseless filtering information, disinformation, image creation, isolation of any event likely to snowball. Courage is viral, it is said, when the dictatorship was provided with an effective antidote, the total control of society. Official sources, security forces and Egyptian intelligence count 1,500,000 people. By themselves, they represent nearly 2% of the population.

Scoop. The demonstration on January 25, 2011 is not the first. Events, there are almost daily and for years. 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. Everywhere the people shouted his anger in the black absolute misinformation. In May 2008, Mahalla, a provincial town famous for its textile industry, thousands of workers without pay had taken possession of their factories, the street, pushed the anti-riot trucks and debunked a giant portrait of President Hosni Mubarak . In Egypt, people have seen these images do not meet the Gaumont Opera. During the events, and to control information leaks, police spotters were posted on trains and checked one by one the passengers bound for Mahalla to arrest journalists and bloggers. Challiss McDonough, VOA, was one of them.

the benefit of his own safety, the Mubarak regime leaves nothing to chance. The state allocates 15 billion Egyptian pounds (2 billion euros) to the Interior cons 4.5 billion (64 million) for education and $ 5 billion for health (71 million). Control information, therefore, at any price. Stop. Beat. Kill. Entertain.

Since January 25, the national television channels broadcast videos, soap operas and shows how essential O on rare tropical. At twenty hours, they air-finally! - Images of riots ... Lebanon, as of course. To date, access to Internet by fixed line is almost stable, but the mobile Internet is much less. Access to Twitter has been blocked on January 25 and then regained 26 to 23:00. January 26, facebook was blocked in the day then restored. Order of the Ministry of Interior, the telephone relay Mobinil and Vodafone are immediately blocked in sensitive areas, that is to say where it manifests .

But that manifests and has called for demonstrations? The Muslim Brotherhood? Fundamentalists? Triple nonsense and balderdash! Shake the specter of Islamism was the sinister strategy of the regime to justify its dictatorship in the eyes of thirty world. That we stop, out of pity and respect for those who pay for their daily bread and their lives, to support this lie worn to the bone. Those who appear, they are Egyptians free, exasperated, united, handled by individual, small, large, Muslims, Christians, atheists, rich and poor. This unit, the slogans that I translate in another post demonstrated forcefully, gaiety, humor and poetry.

But it is difficult, therefore, to communicate, coordinate, inform each other, to know where we are, what we are. You who are outdoors, sometimes in more than we know. These cries of Egypt, I will tell you what I see and read your comments to inform my countrymen on what prevents us from seeing. It is 11:10 p.m.

hours Local. An hour ago Talaat Harb Square (city center), was plunged into darkness. When the police cut the power, it is about to pull the crowd. The following

soon.

          CONTRATOS POR PRESTACION DE SERVICIOS   
En el caso del contrato laboral, se debe regir por lo dispuesto en el código sustantivo del trabajo y otras normas. El contrato laboral resulta muy gravoso por las obligaciones legales que se adquieren, como son las prestaciones sociales, los aportes parafiscales, etc., razón por la cual muchas empresas optan vincular el personal mediante contrato de servicios, ya que este no implica nada mas que el valor y las condiciones que se pacten, el cual esta regulado por el código civil.
 
Para que exista un contrato o relación laboral, se deben cumplir tres presupuestos: subordinación, remuneración (Salario) y prestación personal de la labor, y mientras estos presupuestos de den, la vinculación debe ser necesariamente mediante contrato laboral.
Un contrato de servicios no supone las mismas condiciones ni requisitos de un contrato laboral, puesto que en el caso de un contrato de servicios, la obligación es de hacer algo, mas no de cumplir un horario ni de tener una subordinación permanente, aunque en los dos casos, obviamente hay remuneración.
 
Este tipo de contratos no genera relación laboral ni Prestaciones sociales y se celebran por el término estrictamente indispensable. Puede ser civil o comercial, dependiendo del encargo.
 
 
 
Sobre el “contrato de prestación de servicios”, la Corte Constitucional mediante Sentencia C-154/97,Magistrado Ponente HERNANDO HERRERA VERGARA, señaló que “un contrato de prestación de servicios era la actividad independiente desarrollada, que puede provenir de una persona juridica con la que no existe el elemento de la subordinación laboral o dependencia consistente en la potestad de impartir órdenes en la ejecución de la labor contratada.”
 
De igual forma mediante sentencia del 16 de mayo de 1991, proferida por el Consejo de Estado, sección primera, expediente 1323, Magistrado Ponente LIBARDO RODRÍGUEZ RODRÍGUEZ, se aclaró que a pesar de que ni el Código Civil ni el Código de Comercio definen lo que debe entenderse como contrato de Prestación de Servicios, de acuerdo con el Diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua y la concepción tradicional que se ha tenido de aquel, puede afirmarse que son aquellas actividades en las cuales predomina el ejercicio del intelecto y que han sido reconocidas por el Estado.

          OP=OP ASUS 11,6 inch notebook + SSD, zeer licht, INCL WINDOWS 10 Pro RENEW   

WEES OP TIJD: NOG MAAR DRIE STUKS!! Zie onze demo met Windows 10 Pro... https://youtu.be/oL4ypZd-4QM Nog geen kilo zwaar... Door ons voorzien van Windows 10 Pro... nieuwe installatie zonder alle ASUS APPS.. volledige SSD is gebruikt, na updaten is er nog 17,6 Gb ruimte over voor uw programmatuur en documenten...  .. Geen 249 euro maar nu renewed (echt als nieuw, bulk verpakt) met 6 maanden garantie (carry in) nu voor E 179... laatste stuks van een grote partij! NERGENS ANDERS VOOR DEZE PRIJS!! De ASUS EeeBook F205TA-FD018BS is een 11.6 inch laptop gebaseerd op een Intel Atom Z3735F processor met 2 GB geheugen. Het zeer kleine formaat maakt de laptop eenvoudig mee te nemen, maar is minder ideaal voor langdurig gebruik. Het gewicht bedraagt 965 gram. De notebook heeft een scherm met een resolutie van 1366x768 pixels, aangestuurd door een Intel HD Graphics grafische kaart. De opslagcapaciteit bedraagt 32 GB en door de aanwezigheid van een SSD werkt het apparaat vlotter dan vergelijkbare laptops met een conventionele harde schijf. Als besturingssysteem is Microsoft Windows10 HOME OF PRO geinstalleerd. Volgens onze tests kun je met een acculading circa 586 minuten werken op de laptop en dat is uitstekend te noemen.

U kunt de opslagcapaciteit van deze notebook heel gemakkelijk uitbreiden met een micro SD kaart van 32, 64 of 128 GB... Deze SD kaarten kosten verrassend weinig tegenwoordig!

          Mulgrew Miller: “Living in the Shadows of Giants”   

© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


“Don’t cross a bridge to get home or to work:” I guess the expression contains more than a hint of caution and admonition, especially if you’ve lived some time in the San Francisco Bay area and seen the nightmarish traffic back-ups a closed bridge can cause on the local, television news.

Thankfully, I never experienced such a delay in all the years I lived and worked in San Francisco,

But I sure caught a taste of what such an experience would be like as I was headed north back to the Oakland, CA airport to catch a return flight to my relocated home in southern California following some business appointments in the Silicon Valley.

A major accident on the Bay Bridge between San Francisco and Oakland had caused a traffic back-up so serious that it extended south on US 880 to about 10 miles below the airport.

The was no alternative and plenty of later flights so I just relaxed and turned on the FM-Jazz station while I waited things out in the rental car that was crawling along at death-defying speed of 3 MPH.

The radio broadcast that I tuned into was an interview with pianist Mulgrew Miller who was appearing through the upcoming weekend with his trio at Yoshi’s Jazz Club located on a portion of the waterfront which the City of Oakland had reclaimed from surplus shipping docks and refurbished into a lovely commercial-cum-residential area.

I knew of Mulgrew’s work through recordings he had made during his long association with drummer Tony Williams’ quintet in the 1980s and 1990s, but I had never heard him play in person.

He sounded very warm and cordial during the radio interview and I thought, “Well, at the rate things are going with the crawling traffic, maybe I’ll just book into a local hotel and catch one of Mulgrew’s sets at Yoshi’s.”

Of all the remarks Mulgrew made during the exchange with the interviewer, one stayed with me: “It’s tough to get any recognition as a Jazz musician today because we are living in the shadow of Giants.”

This is not verbatim, but earlier in his talk, Mulgrew had said that many of the pianists  during the bebop era, for example Al Haig, Joe Albany, Dodo Marmarosa, John Lewis, and even some pianists during the later hard bop era like Sonny Clark, Horace Silver and Walter Bishop, Jr., were not original stylists.

They basically played in the manner of Bud Powell and gained a certain measure of recognition and approval for being able to do so.

But musicians like himself, who continue in this bebop piano tradition and perhaps add some of the newer influences like Ahmad Jamal, McCoy Tyner or Keith Jarrett to their approach get little respect because we are not “… the next Bud Powell or Art Tatum or Bill Evans.”

“Why? Not all of us can be giants like Bud and Art or Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. We are doing our part to keep the Jazz tradition alive and even move it forward a little, but we get little respect for what we do accomplish and put down for what we don’t.”


None of this was conveyed with animosity by Mulgrew, but you could certainly sense his disappointment and his displeasure.

The interview then trailed off and was replaced by the playing of one of Mulgrew’s recordings in its entirety.

By some miracle I was just pulling into the hired car parking lot when the interviewer returned so I did not get to hear the rest of Mulgrew’s talk.

The following year The Mulgrew Miller Trio Live at Yoshi’s was issued as a double CD on MaxJazz [[MXJ 212/208] and I picked up a copy along with the March 1, 2005 edition of Downbeatin which the following article about Mulgrew by Ted Panken appeared.

Mulgrew passed away on May 28, 2013 and the editorial staff at JazzProfiles thought it might be nice to remember him on these pages with a reprint of his Downbeat interview and the Nat Chinen obituary that was published in The New York Times.

Mulgrew Miller: No Apologies 

“Ironies abound in the world of Mulgrew Miller. On the one hand, the 49-year-old pianist is, as Eric Reed pointed out, "the most imitated pianist of the last 25 years." On the other, he finds it difficult to translate his exalted status into full-blown acceptance from the jazz business.

"It's a funny thing about my career," Miller said. "Promoters won't hire my band, but they'll book me as a sideman and make that the selling point of the gig. That boggles my mind."

Miller would seem to possess unsurpassed qualifications for leadership. As the 2004 trio release Live At Yoshi's (MaxJazz) makes evident, no pianist of Miller's generation brings such a wide stylistic palette to the table. A resolute modernist with an old-school attitude, he's assimilated the pentagonal contemporary canon of Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett, as well as Woody Shaw's harmonic innovations, and created a fluid personal argot.

His concept draws on such piano-as-orchestra signposts as Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Erroll Garner, the "blowing piano" of Bud Powell, the disjunctive syncopations and voicings of Thelonious Monk, and the melodic ingenuity of gums like Hank Jones, Tommy Flanagan and Cedar Walton. With technique to burn, he finds ways to conjure beauty from pentatonics and odd intervals, infusing his lines with church and blues strains and propelling them with a joyous, incessant beat.


"I played with some of the greatest swinging people who ever played jazz, and I want to get the quality of feeling I heard with them," Miller said. "It's a sublime way to play music, and the most creative way to express myself. You can be both as intellectual and as soulful as you want, and the swing beat is powerful but subtle. I think you have to devote yourself to it exclusively to do it at that level."

Consequential apprenticeships with the Mercer Ellington Orchestra, Betty Carter, Johnny Griffin and Shaw launched Miller's career. A 1983-'86 stint with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers put his name on the map, and he cemented his reputation during a long association with Tony Williams' great cuspof-the-'90s band, a sink-or-swim environment in which Miller thrived, playing, as pianist Anthony Wonsey recalls, "with fire but also the maturity of not rushing."

By the mid '80s, Miller was a fixture on
New York's saloon scene. Later, he sidemanned extensively with Bobby Hutcherson, Benny Golson, James Moody and Joe Lovano, and from 1987 to 1996 he recorded nine trio and ensemble albums for Landmark and RCANovus.

Not long after his 40th birthday, Miller resolved to eschew club dates and one-offs, and to focus on his own original music. There followed a six-year recording hiatus, as companies snapped up young artists with tenuous ties to the legacy of hardcore jazz.

"I won't call any names," Miller says, "but a lot of people do what a friend of mine calls 'interview music.' You do something that's obviously different, and you get the interviews and a certain amount of attention. Jazz is part progressive art and part folk art, and I've observed it to be heavily critiqued by people who attribute progressivity to music that lacks a folk element. When Charlie Parker developed his great conception, the folk element was the same as Lester Young and the blues shouters before him. Even when Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane played their conceptions, the folk element was intact. But now, people almost get applauded if they don't include that in their expression. If I reflected a heavy involvement in Arnold Schoenberg or some other ultra-modern composers, then I would be viewed differently than I am. Guys who do what I am doing are viewed as passé.

"A lot of today's musicians learn the rudiments of playing straight-ahead, think they've got it covered, become bored, and say, 'Let me try something else,'" Miller continued. "They develop a vision of expanding through different areas - reggae here, hip-hop there, blues here, soul there, classical music over here and being able to function at a certain level within all those styles. Rather than try to do a lot of things pretty good, I have a vision more of spiraling down to a core understanding of the essence of what music is."

This being said, Miller-who once wrote a lovely tune called "Farewell To Dogma" -continues to adhere to the principle that "there is no one way to play jazz piano and no one way that jazz is supposed to sound." He is not to be confused with the jazz police. His drummer, Karriem Riggins, has a second career as a hip-hop producer, and has at his fingertips a lexicon of up-to-the-second beats. When the urge strikes, bassist Derrick Hodge might deviate from a walking bass line to slap the bass Larry Graham style. It's an approach familiar to Miller, who grew up in
Greenwood, Miss., playing the music of James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Al Green in various Upper Delta cover bands.

"It still hits me where I live," he says. "It's Black music. That's my roots. When I go home, they all know me as the church organist from years ago, so it's nothing for me to walk up to the organ and fit right in. I once discussed my early involvement in music with Abdullah Ibrahim, and he described what I went through as a community-based experience. Before I became or wanted to become a jazz player, I played in church, in school plays, for dances and for cocktail parties. I was already improvising, and always on some level it was emotional or soul or whatever you want to call it. I was finding out how to connect with people through music.

"By now, I have played jazz twice as long as I played popular music, and although that style of playing is part of my basic musical being, I don't particularly feel that I need to express myself through it," he continued. "It's all blues. The folk element of the music doesn't change. The blues in 1995 and in 1925 is the same thing. The technology is different. But the chords are the same, the phrasing is the same, the language is the same-exact same. I grew up on that. It's a folk music. Folk music is not concerned with evolving."

For all his devotion to roots, Miller is adamant that expansion and evolution are key imperatives that drive his tonal personality. "I left my hometown to grow, and early on I intended to embrace as many styles and conceptions as I could," he said. "When I came to
New York I had my favorites, but there was a less celebrated, also brilliant tier of pianists who played the duo rooms, and I tried to hear all of those guys and learn from them. The sound of my bands changes as the musicians expand in their own right. I'm open, and all things are open to interpretation. I trust my musicians-their musicianship, insights, judgments and taste-and they tend to bring things off in whatever direction they want to go. In the best groups I played with, spontaneity certainly was a strong element."

Quiet and laid-back, determined to follow his muse, Miller may never attain mass consumption. But he remains sanguine.

"I have moments, but I don't allow myself to stay discouraged for long," he said. "I worked hard to maintain a certain mental and emotional equilibrium. It's mostly due to my faith. I don't put all my eggs in that basket of being a rich and famous jazz guy. That allows me a certain amount of freedom, because I don't have to play music for money. I play music because I love it. I play the music I love with people I want to play with. I have a long career behind me. I don't have to apologize to anybody for any decisions I make." -Ted Panken” 

Mulgrew Miller, Dynamic Jazz Pianist, Dies at 57

Copyright © The New York Times/Nate Chinen/May 29, 2013.

“Mulgrew Miller, a jazz pianist whose soulful erudition, clarity of touch and rhythmic aplomb made him a fixture in the postbop mainstream for more than 30 years, died on Wednesday in Allentown, Pa. He was 57.

The cause was a stroke, said his longtime manager, Mark Gurley. Mr. Miller had been hospitalized since Friday.

Mr. Miller developed his voice in the 1970s, combining the bright precision of bebop, as exemplified by Bud Powell and Oscar Peterson, with the clattering intrigue of modal jazz, especially as defined by McCoy Tyner. His balanced but assertive style was a model of fluency, lucidity and bounce, and it influenced more than a generation of younger pianists.

He was a widely respected bandleader, working either with a trio or with the group he called Wingspan, after the title of his second album. The blend of alto saxophone and vibraphone on that album, released on Landmark Records in 1987, appealed enough to Mr. Miller that he revived it in 2002 on “The Sequel” (MaxJazz), working in both cases with the vibraphonist Steve Nelson. Among Mr. Miller’s releases in the last decade were an impeccable solo piano album and four live albums featuring his dynamic trio.


Mr. Miller could seem physically imposing on the bandstand — he stood taller than six feet, with a sturdy build — but his temperament was warm and gentlemanly. He was a dedicated mentor: his bands over the last decade included musicians in their 20s, and since 2005 he had been the director of jazz studies at William Paterson University in New Jersey.

If his sideman credentials overshadowed his solo career, it wasn’t hard to see why: he played on hundreds of albums and worked in a series of celebrated bands. His most visible recent work had been with the bassist Ron Carter, whose chamberlike Golden Striker Trio featured Mr. Miller and the guitarist Russell Malone on equal footing; the group released a live album, “San Sebastian” (In+Out), this year.

Born in Greenwood, Miss., on Aug. 13, 1955, Mr. Miller grew up immersed in Delta blues and gospel music. After picking out hymns by ear at the family piano, he began taking lessons at age 8. He played the organ in church and worked in soul cover bands, but devoted himself to jazz after seeing Mr. Peterson on television, a moment he later described as pivotal.

At Memphis State University, he befriended two pianists, James Williams and Donald Brown, both of whom later preceded him in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Mr. Miller spent several years with that band, just as he did with the trumpeter Woody Shaw, the singer Betty Carter and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, led by Ellington’s son, Mercer. Mr. Miller worked in an acclaimed quintet led by the drummer Tony Williams from the mid-1980s until shortly before Williams died in 1997.

Mr. Miller’s survivors include his wife, Tanya; his son, Darnell; his daughter, Leilani; and a grandson. He lived in Easton, Pa.

Though he harbored few resentments, Mr. Miller was clear about the limitations imposed on his career. “Jazz is part progressive art and part folk art,” he said in a 2005 interview with DownBeat magazine, differentiating his own unassuming style from the concept-laden, critically acclaimed fare that he described as “interview music.” He added, “Guys who do what I am doing are viewed as passé.”


But Mr. Miller worked with so many celebrated peers, like the alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett and the tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, that his reputation among musicians was ironclad. And his legacy includes a formative imprint on some leading players of the next wave, including the drummer Karriem Riggins and the bassist Derrick Hodge, who were in one of his trios. The pianist Robert Glasper once recorded an original ballad called “One for ’Grew,” paying homage to a primary influence. On Monday, another prominent pianist, Geoffrey Keezer, attested on Twitter that seeing Mr. Miller one evening in 1986 was “what made me want to be a piano player professionally.”

In the performance from the At Yoshi’s 2004 double CD that forms the sound track for this video tribute to him, Mulgrew has cleverly adopted Comes Love to the arrangement Ahmad Jamal used on Poinciana from his At The Pershing Room Argo LP, one of the most successful Jazz recordings ever issued.

The insistent rhythm is formed by Karriem Riggins use of mallets on the drum set’s tom toms and the insistent accent played by the high hat on the 2nd and 4thbeat of each measure.

On the original version, instead of the usual “clicking” sound made by stepping on the high hat’s cymbals to close them, Ahmad’s drummer, Vernel Fournier, played the high hat cymbals open [barely touching them together] creating more of a “chinging” sound to simulate finger cymbals.

You can hear this effect in a more pronounced manner as played by Karriem at 4:21 minutes of Mulgrew’s version.

“The C.B.B.B. - The Clarke Boland Big Band - was formed in 1962 through the efforts of Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke. The pianist and the drummer wanted lo form a European orchestra whose sound would be instantly recognizable.

After recording in Cologne on May 18 and 19, 1961. with a smaller group - Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland (The Golden Eight) - the two leaders decided to put together a bigger band, and on December 13. 1961, the recording of Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland ("Jazz is Universal") took place. Among the thirteen musicians were the future mainstays of the band: the American trumpeter Benny Bailey, the English alto sax player Derek Humble, and the trombone player from Sweden, Aake Persson. After the success of this disc, the decision was made to increase the band even further; on January 25. 26 and 27. 1963 the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band recorded in Cologne with 21 musicians. Throughout its career, the band never included less than 12 nationalities.

The personalities of the two leaders. Kenny and Francy. were directly opposite of those of the legendary big band leaders, iron-fisted megalomaniacs like Buddy Rich or Benny Goodman. Not only did Francy write the arrangements for a given instrument, but in thinking of a particular musician in the band, and composed according to the sound, phrasing and style of the individual. Team spirit reigned in the C.B.B.B. Each musician was aware of his importance in creating a good ensemble sound.

The name of Kenny Clarke is definitively associated with the birth of bop drumming. Following in the footsteps of Jo Jones and Sidney Catlett. it is to him that we owe the fact that still today the rhythm is played on the ride cymbal, with snare drum/bass drum punctuations. Jazz lovers see Kenny primarily as a small group drummer, forgetting that he was also a great big band drummer [check out Kenny’s playing in Dizzy Gillespie’s first big band in the 1940’s].

Drummer/leaders have existed from the earliest times in jazz. After "Papa Jack" Laine. there were Ben Pollack. Chick Webb, Gene Krupa. Buddy Rich, Don Lamond. Mel Lewis... the list (and the beat) goes on. The C.B.B.B. is situated in the grand traditions of the big bands. The basic musical concept was of a rhythmic foundation on which the entire orchestra reposed. Here the role of the drummer is clearly vital; along with the bassist, he plays throughout the piece, and is both accompanist and soloist.

But this key role is not without its disadvantages; the drummer has incomparably less freedom than in a small group. He has to memorize the arrangement, playing strictly what has already been laid down, while still leaving room for improvised fills. Some famous drummers have never succeeded in imposing such discipline on themselves. Others have adapted magnificently to it. Such was the case with Kenny, who was able to play with what I will call "controlled madness". In the big band, he played with a big band drummer's phrasing - unlike, for example. Mel Lewis, who in a big band setting performed with exactly the same vocabulary as in a quartet. ...

Running a big band poses all kinds of difficulties, financial and organizational among others. The C.B.B.B. lasted 11 years, and broke up in 1973. It was in no sense a revolutionary band, but there was within it a fundamental and precious element: an intense love of playing. Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke had the great merit of believing that the formation of a European jazz orchestra was possible, despite the supposedly insurmountable obstacles. They believed... and they were right... and we now reap the benefit.”

Georges overview of the Clarke Boland Big Band - known to its many fans as the CBBB - assumes a new relevance with the CD reissue with enhanced audio quality of one of its later recordings on MPS - The Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band - “ALL SMILES."

ABOUT THIS RECORD - by Stefan Franzen [translated by Martin Cook]

“Without ever making concessions to the trend of the moment, the Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band was the embodiment of the timeless art of the jazz orchestra. Its play was proof positive that a jazz big band compiled of top-flite musicians from both sides of the Atlantic could take off and soar. Regarded as the most important big band outside of the US, this bi-continental orchestra recorded over two dozen albums, close to a third of these under the SABA and MRS labels. Recorded in May, 1968, All Smiles was one of the Bands highpoints. The album exhibits a style that became synonymous with this US-European enterprise: it not only swung it was the perfect vehicle for Bolands sophisticated modern arrangements. Trumpeters Benny Bailey and Idrees Sulieman, saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott, as well as special guest vibraphonist Dave Pike are some of the jazz giants among the soloists in this 17-man combo who turn out some masterly short portraits. From the fleet-footed waltz I’m All Smiles to the bluesy party piece, By Strauss and the sensuous theme from Gloria, the journey continues on through to the furious John Phillip Sousa finale, High School Cadets. Preferring varicolored intricacy over massive walls of sound, The Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band stood up against the constant flow of momentary fads, remaining true to the inventive tradition of the great big bands.”

Original Liner Notes - by Manfred Miller

[Warning these have some syntactical and grammatical challenges for native speakers of English. I decided to represent them in their original translation as I do not speak enough German to attempt my own.]

The one window is open. Hubbub comes up from the street and into the room that is in Cologne's elegant Hohe Strasse/High Street (no thoroughfare!) on the first floor above the branch of some bank. The large, plain writing-table hides itself under paper. Telegrams, notes, contracts, excerpts pile up to several layers. Two of the three phones at least are constantly in operation. On the second table, in a corner, there, too, is scarcely a spot left for an ash-tray. Sheets of notes, a bunch of newspapers, at least ten tape boxes. If a film chose to feature a manager's office like that everybody would laugh at the cliche of overburdening.

The man who hired this room does work hard. It is not that sort of work, however, which the German treasury of proverbs has always rated higher than fun. The man offers his latest product music. Powerfully swinging, precise, intelligent music, music that interests head and feet and everything in between. “All Smiles" is going to be the title of the new Clarke-Boland Big Band album. The man has to shout to make that understood. The two loudspeakers are turned on to the limits of their capacity. The one window is still open...

Gigi Campi never listens to his tapes quietly. An American trombonist, who for some time belonged to the CBBB, once complained. "Funny band. No dynamics", to the protest of his colleague Nat Peck "Yes there are! One is loud, the other is louder..." An exaggerated sentence, no doubt. Yet like every good exaggeration it catches some truth. The CBBB does not play for self-forgetting, absorbed listeners. If it provokes self-forgetfulness, it is that of rhythmical ecstasy. The CBBB does not know the charms of the morbid. This is hopelessly sound and optimistic music. All Smiles.

The Clarke-Boland guys stand for Ellington's fundamental truth: "It don't mean a thing..." It is not by chance that this band plays with two drummers - as if Klook Clarke alone were not a deuce of a swinger. Once his near namemate Kenny Clare acted as a substitute for Clarke who was prevented from making a date. The Clarke indemnification thrilled the band, he was invited to the next session. Klook personally persuaded the English studio musician to become a constant member with the CBBB - as a percussionist.

"Then there was one number", Clare reports, "a Turkish march thing on which I played snare drum. On the playback it sounded pretty good together, just like one drummer. There were some talks. The next time would I bring my drums along, too? Let's see, if it works with both of us playing together. It worked."

Indeed, Clarke and Clare together play like one musician; only that one musician alone could never realise all they play together. Clare: "There are many who would like to get that springy kind of beat Klook gets. I would, too. When I'm with him I can play that way without even thinking about it. As soon as I'm away from him I can't do it anymore. Strange. I have yet to figure it out." Whatsoever may be the key to this secret - the result is a fabulous co-ordination of the two drummers. The first piece - LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE - is an example of this. The fills Klook on the snare drum (for stereo listeners left channel) and Clare on the bass drum do in concert seem as if sprung up from one and the same feeling; and a swinging feeling into the bargain.

It would be wrong, however, to list the CBBB simply under the rubric "powerhouse.” The co-leader, arranger, and pianist Francy Boland has too many ideas for that. You will never catch upon Boland copying simple riffs nor - as the legend goes - exercising. SWEET AND LOVELY forces out of the standard melody continually fresh versions, new harmonic nuances and shades of sound, variations in a strict sense (into which Johnny Griffin excellently joins with a concentrated solo citing motives from the theme once and again): that is - also - an intellectual delight. As the British musical journalist Kenny Graham noted, Francy Boland does not care for trends. Harmonically scored choruses for the reed section have become rare in jazz. Yet Francy dedicates an entire number to the saxophones and with numbers such as YOU STEPPED OUT OF A DREAM, GET OUT OF TOWN and WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE shows what other arrangers do not care to miss.

Certainly who besides Boland disposes of such a reed section? The musicians of the CBBB do not know a comparison to Derek Humble's lead alto that is relaxed and vigorous at once, and ever riding the tip of the beat wave - they give a tired shrug even to the most renowned names. Each of the three tenor saxophonists takes a fine solo - "Li'l Giant" Griffin justifies his nickname time and again. Ronnie Scott blows a virile and straight solo in Gershwin's homage to the king of waltz BY STRAUSS. Tony Coe tells of Dame GLORIA'S merits with rhapsodic vehemence (,,a masterpiece", says Gigi Campi): and Sahib Shihab, who in the Barbara-Streisand-title I'M ALL SMILES solos on flute, is “the outstanding baritone saxophonist of modern jazz" according to Joachim Ernst Berendt. Each of the five reed men is himself a star with a distinguished style of his own, and yet jointly they make up a homogenous and disciplined section. Whosoever generated the rumour that precision and musical temperament were exclusive to one another; he has to be refuted by these five musicians.

And the same applies to the other sections. Benny Bailey, the brilliant, willful lead trumpeter, blows the delicately musical flugelhorn solo in I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU. Cole Porter's GET OUT OF TOWN is meant for Jimmy Deuchar's elegant trumpet and for Ake Persson's powerful trombone-Idrees Sulieman, who in the Clarke-Boland combos mostly comes out with untamed attacca and splendid bop phrases, shows off a different side now: a simple melodic lead and a warm tone in LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE and in the standard ballad of WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE, from which he chooses the first few bars to set out a well-controlled improvisation that does not waste a note.

To those who are still in the dark the Sousa-march HIGH SCHOOL CADETS tells what is the matter with the CBBB. That drives on straight away like - well, no: a steam roller is not likely to go so easily at 250 km/h. You had better not try to sit still to these pieces: Let's face the music and dance. Still one thing to tell you: perhaps you really ought to shut that window now.”

TO EVERY AGE ITS SOUND by Dirk Sommer, reissue producer [Translated by Martin Cook]

Yes, we have worked on the sound of the music that was stored on tapes, some of which are over 40 years old, before they were transferred to the lacquers that are used for the vinyl record production. In the music business this is commonly known as remastering. However, it says nothing about how intensively and with what a sense of purpose mastering engineer Christoph Stickel and I have worked on modifying and improving the sound of the original tapes. Of course as with any LP that appears in the triple-a-series, all the procedures took place using only the finest analogue equipment. As the headline - modeled after the Vienna Secession movement's motto: 'to every age its art' - already indicates, every period has its own typical sound esthetic. We felt that fitting the MPS records to the way recordings sound today would be a sort of sacrilege. As a result, we have simply redressed a couple of traces of aging as well as small inconsistencies in the sound that, because of the technological limitations of that time, were not optimally dealt with on the original recordings. So enjoy some of the most exciting jazz albums of the 1970's and 80's the way they originally sounded - despite or because of our remasterings!”

How have South Africa’s businesses engaged with BEE legislation? This has often been a contentious issue and the goalposts have kept moving. However, one of the exciting key outcomes has been the establishment of 27 new grant-making foundations in South Africa, mostly in the last two years, that have been endowed with a surprisingly massive amount of R32.6-billion in assets that will support charitable causes in perpetuity. This information emerged from a ground-breaking report entitled “The Empowerment Endowment” released by Intellidex, a financial research company, which gathered data from 35 companies and explored what value has been created specifically for charitable recipients through BEE deals, “including community trusts, existing charities and newly established foundations”.

          PORTUGAL À SOMBRA DE AMBIGUIDADES AINDA NÃO ULTRAPASSADAS – VIII   



Em saudação aos 60 anos do MPLA, aos 52 anos da passagem do Che por África e aos 43 anos do 25 de Abril… e assinalando os 50 anos do início do “Exercício ALCORA” e os 50 anos do início da Guerra do Biafra.

15- O fascismo e colonialismo do Estado Novo, em função dos problemas que criou, tornou-se praticamente indigente no que ao armamento e equipamento militar dizia respeito: e vassalo nas obrigações internacionais no quadro da NATO e do Exercício ALCORA, uma vassalagem que não parou com o 25 de Abril de 1974.

Em Goa, Damão e Dio, ficou evidente que a capacidade militar do colonialismo português praticamente não existia e no campo da NATO, muito poucos tinham interesse em ajudar essa indigência avassalada, inclusive o aliado Grã-Bretanha.

Logo em 1961 relativamente a Angola, era essa a impressão do cônsul-geral da África do Sul em Luanda e por isso os portugueses recorreram desde logo ao “apartheid” para criar comunicações que levassem a futuros entendimentos com a África do Sul.

Se a vassalagem era impotente em relação à NATO, iriam buscá-la noutras paragens.

Em Setembro de 1963, a África do Sul ofereceu assistência militar e um ano depois, os portugueses manifestaram ao “apartheid” que estavam interessados num acordo permanente para o fornecimento de peças e outros serviços de apoio para os helicópteros Alouette III.

Em 1967 os dois países deram mais um passo no sentido do fornecimento por parte da África do Sul de material militar, algo que agradava ao “apartheid”, que além do mais se ia apercebendo que Portugal iria ficar em dependência em relação ao seu poderio e interesses.

Em 1968 os enlaces derivaram no sentido de se criar as bases do acordo do âmbito do Exercício ALCORA, sendo definida a entrada das SADF e Polícia sul-africana no sudeste de Angola, a pretexto do “apartheid” se juntar aos portugueses e dar caça simultaneamente às guerrilhas da SWAPO e do MPLA.

Em ambos os casos o “apartheid” aproveitou para estreitar laços com a PIDE/DGS, uma vez que o conceito e a doutrina dos Flechas às ordens de Óscar Cardoso lhes interessava, tanto como a Operação Madeira.

De entre os equipamentos que a África do Sul se comprometeu a fornecer nesse ano, estavam 5 helicópteros Alouette III, 33 autometralhadoras Panhard AML e 283 rádios TR 28C.

Algum desse armamento foi parar aos “Dragões” instalados no Bié, o que é um indicativo da percepção que o colonialismo português tinha sobre a importância geoestratégica da Região Central das Grandes Nascentes em Angola.

Para efeito desse fornecimento, os sul-africanos solicitaram ao Estado Novo que pedisse autorização aos franceses, uma vez que eram eles os produtores desses meios e o “apartheid”, que sob licença os produzia no seu território, respeitava os compromissos existentes com a França…

Portugal acedeu e os fornecimentos a partir de então passaram a ter plena garantia.

A França passou a ser um fornecedor de material de guerra que supria as necessidades do“apartheid”, no âmbito da internacional fascista que renitentemente se erguia em armas na África Austral e por tabela do colonialismo português, em especial nos teatros operacionais de Angola, Moçambique e Guiné Bissau.

É evidente que isso não teria sido possível sem que houvesse fortes laços entre os interessados da internacional fascista, ao abrigo do “Le Cercle”, um dos mentores mais reaccionários das políticas de então, unindo as tendências fascistas e colonialistas na Europa, na América Latina e em África, com respaldo das sucessivas administrações estado-unidenses.

O “Le Cercle” haveria de ter muitos êxitos nos seus “bons ofícios” na “defesa da civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e entre eles os resultantes dos papados no Vaticano dum polaco (João Paulo II – 22 de Outubro de 1978 a 2 de Abril de 2005) e dum alemão (Bento XVI – 24 de Abril de 2005 a 28 de Fevereiro de 2013)…

As mais “conservadoras” doutrinas da Igreja Católica Apostólica Romana, impactaram em Angola nos anos da “glasnost”, nos anos de chumbo, precisa e sincronizadamente na mesma altura dos impactos do capitalismo neoliberal após o desaparecimento do socialismo real da Europa e essa, sob o ponto de vista ideológico, é uma das explicações das aproximações que em função de Bicesse se fizeram a Angola, por via de partidos como o CDS, PSD e PS, até aos nossos dias… coisas de agenciados social-democratas do âmbito da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e dos negócios que ela tão bem propicia, já se vê…

Antes era nesse mesmo esteio que se movia a “Aginter Press”, no quadro das “redes stay behind” da NATO e do “Le Cercle”, acima das capacidades operacionais dos serviços de inteligência de Portugal, Rodésia e África do Sul, ainda que tivesse ficado sem efeito a Concordata do Estado Novo com o Vaticano…

O apoio da França foi garantido e a África do Sul teve luz verde para continuar o fornecimento de material militar ao Estado Novo, o que reforçou o seu relativo domínio na definição, formulação e organização das tarefas e missões implícitas no acordo do Exercício ALCORA.

O Estado Novo foi ficando cada vez mais avassalado ao “apartheid”, à medida que progredia a instalação do Exercício ALCORA.

As políticas de Richard Nixon para África por seu turno, deram outra cobertura às iniciativas em prol do Exercício ALCORA e no leste de Angola, a África do Sul desencadeou a Operação Bombaim, contra as guerrilhas do MPLA e da SWAPO, dando início a uma prolongada “border war” que só iria terminar em finais da década de 80 do século XX, quando a Linha da Frente passou irreversivelmente do paralelo de Brazzaville – Dar es Salam, para o paralelo da fronteira sul de Angola, Zâmbia e Moçambique, dando posteriormente origem à criação da “Southern African Development Community”, SADC.

O Exercício ALCORA teve início formal entre 4 e 7 de Dezembro de 1971, permitindo um aumento dos fornecimentos de material de guerra por parte da França e da África do Sul ao Estado Novo.

Em 1973 e 1974 o estudo dos riscos e ameaças, em função das informações colhidas em Kinshasa no âmbito do Exercício ALCORA (que envolveu também a “antena diplomática” que dava pelo nome de António Monteiro), apontava para a eminência dum ataque a Cabinda e norte de Angola, sob orientação do apêndice da CIA, Mobutu, Presidente do Zaíre, reforçado por outros países africanos.

O Zaíre havia adquirido armamento e os programas de acção contra o colonialismo português em suporte das FLEC e da FNLA, começaram a ganhar corpo.

A escalada de fornecimento de material de guerra em 1974, por parte do “apartheid” ao colonialismo português, subiu uma vez mais a fasquia: os sul-africanos iriam fazer reconhecimentos aéreos em Cabinda e norte de Angola, “a fim de detectar indícios de preparativos de concentração de forças inimigas”, estimularam o fornecimento de mísseis Crotale e prepararam um acordo financeiro, com uma ampla política de crédito disponível.

O 25 de Abril de 1974 inviabilizou alguns dos fornecimentos militares e o reconhecimento aéreo acordado, não terá inviabilizado o financiamento (que lhe terá sido anterior também por causa do Plano do Cunene e Cabora Bassa), mas o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu na direcção de Cabinda e do norte de Angola, estimuladas pela CIA no encontro “secreto” entre o general Spínola e Mobutu na ilha do Sal, ficaram proteladas para o quadro das disputas relativas à independência de Angola a 11 de Novembro de 1975.

Foi assim que o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu, passaram a integrar a Operação IAFEATURE, da “CIA contra Angola”, conforme a denúncia de John Stockwell.

De entre esses aproveitamentos esteve o Exército de Libertação de Portugal, ELP, um resultado dos compromissos do general Spínola, que depois de ultrapassar a hesitação de alinhamento directo com o “apartheid”, acabou por alinhar na operação da “CIA contra Angola”, tendo à frente o Coronel Santos e Castro, um profundo conhecedor das áreas a norte de Luanda (Caxito e Dembos).

O ELP aglutinou alguns sectores ligados à Frente Unida de Angola, FUA e à Frente Revolucionária de Angola, FRA (criado por Jaime Nogueira Pinto), entre outros, cujos programas levavam à independência de Angola de acordo com as ideias de Ian Smith na Rodésia e de forma a “repescar”em tempo oportuno o Exercício ALCORA.

Em “Jogos africanos”, Jaime Nogueira Pinto (membro assumido do “Le Cercle”), revela:

“… Com a partida de Silvério Marques e a chegada de Rosa Coutinho a situação agravou-se muito em todos os sectores.

O Almirante Vermelho, que logo se fizera rodear de uma segurança nunca vista, mostrava-se frio e eficaz no prosseguimento dos seus objectivos.

Achei que era tempo de passar a formas superiores de luta.

AGITPROP.

Tive então a ideia de criar a FRA – Frente Revolucionária de Angola.

O conceito era simples.

Se fôssemos fazer uma coisa de raiz, nós, os miúdos, os militares metropolitanos, não teríamos qualquer hipótese de ser levados a sério pelos civis locais.

Por isso achámos melhor recorrer à acção psicológica e à agitprop, criando um mito, uma lenda.

Engendramos então uma organização secreta – a FRA.

Redigíamos os panfletos originais da dita organização e fazíamos como se nos tivessem vindo parar às mãos.

Depois fotocopiávamos os panfletos e distribuíamo-los por círculos de activistas, onde estavam o Engenheiro Pompílio da Cruz, o capitão Seara e outros.

O Mariz Fernandes era a única pessoa, para além de mim e do Nunes, que sabia da coisa.

A ideia que passávamos era a de que existia uma forte organização secreta de resistência ao MFA e que quem aderia a essa sofisticadíssima rede clandestina passava a fazer parte duma poderosa máquina subversiva.

Assim a FRA funcionou, teve adesões, recrutou militantes e fez até algumas operações.

Era o que importava: não estar quieto, tentar coisas contra o apocalipse que se aproximava”…

…Por aquela altura já estava eu incorporado no Movimento Democrático de Angola (MDA) que, antes da chegada do MPLA a Luanda, sob orientação da Drª Maria do Carmo Medina e de Antero de Abreu, se contrapunha às influências da FUA e do FRA.

O ELP tinha influências também no sul de Angola, (Huíla, Namibe e em Benguela), com resíduos que foram permanecendo até hoje, com influência nos sectores económicos e sócio-políticos daquelas províncias, e intimamente associados a outros intervenientes dentro e fora de Angola, nomeadamente em Portugal e na África do Sul.

Era nesse cadinho que a BOSS/NIS recrutava agentes, como os que foram mais tarde detectados e neutralizados pela segurança angolana; Amílcar Fernandes Freire, Francisco Alberto Abarran Barata e Dongala Kamati, (meados da década de 80)… eu fui um dos oficiais instrutores do processo que lhes foi correspondente em defesa dasegurança e soberania de Angola… mal sabendo eu que em breve seria acusado, julgado e condenado por “golpe de estado sem efusão de sangue”(Processo 76/86)…

Foi assim também que o “apartheid”, tacitamente, desencadearia a Operação Savana, em apoio a Savimbi, em simultâneo à Operação da “CIA contra Angola” e na perspectiva de Holden e Savimbi alcançarem o poder em Luanda, a 11 de Novembro de 1975…”border war” já se vê…

… E foi assim que Portugal (onde já se vivia o após 25 de Novembro de 1975), retardou o reconhecimento da República Popular de Angola, (só o fez a 22 de Fevereiro de 1976 e foi o 83º país a fazê-lo) na espectativa de sua inviabilização!

É evidente que à medida que a aristocracia financeira mundial assumia o domínio, todas as peças da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se iam encaixando na sua estrutura em pirâmide, cada vez mais avassaladora, preparando a hegemonia unipolar.

16- A passagem da linha da frente progressista e informal, para a Linha da Frente contra o“apartheid” a sul de Angola, acompanhou a trajectória da evolução do Exercício ALCORA até ao seu colapso.

Em Brazzaville, sucederam-se vários governos progressistas, fora da órbitra das redes de Jacques Foccard e para tal muito contribuiu a ajuda internacionalista da 2ª coluna do Che, que teve em Jorge Risquet um dos seus principais dirigentes.

Instalada a partir de 1965, a 2ª coluna do Che, que continuou mesmo depois da passagem do Che pelo Congo na espectativa dos sucessos da guerrilha de Mulele, vocacionou-se também e desde logo no apoio ao Movimento de Libertação em África, nomeadamente no apoio ao MPLA.

No livro “El  Segundo Frente del Che en el Congo – Historia del Batallón Patricio Lumumba”, Jorge Risquet Valdés dá conta do papel da iniciativa solidária e internacionalista para com África, nos termos da linha da frente progressista informal que se instalou entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, narrando com detalhe as acções e citando uma nota do Comandante Fidel de Castro de 30 de Dezembro de 1966:

“Informa a nuestros compañeros en esa,

A nuestros instructores militares, que han permanecido meses alejados de nuestra pátria, cumpliendo misión histórica de solidariedade com pueblos hermanos de África y que han puesto mu yen alto el prestígio de la Revolución cubana envio un caluroso y bien merecido Saludo en estes dias de fiestas navideñas.

La actitud firme y decidida de ustedes, combatientes revolucionários, de permanecer voluntariamente junto a pueblos hermanos, amenazados y agredidos por el imperialismo, demuenstra el alto espiritu de internacionalismo proletário y de solidariedade revolucionaria que há alcanzado nuestro Pueblo. En esse gesto está presente el ideal revolucionaria de Camilo y la decisión inquebrantable de lucha del Che.

Nuestro partido, las fuerzas armadas revolucionaias y nuestro Pueblo, que se apresentan a festejar el octavo aniversario de nuestra Revolución, se sienten orgullosos de ustedes, abnegados jóvenes por la disposición de ofrendar sus vidas si fuere necessário por la causa justa de los pueblos oprimidos, conscientes de que com ello sirven a la pátria y a la humanidade”.

Muita capacidade operativa do MPLA e do PAIGC foi forjada nessa conjuntura, inclusive as três colunas que partiriam em socorro da Iª Região Política Militar do MPLA, cercada e vulnerável
a incursões militares e de inteligência por parte do colonialismo português.

Para o MPLA foi também muito importante para reverter as situações vividas com a sua expulsão do Zaíre.

As colunas do MPLA, Camilo Cienfuegos, Cami e Ferraz Bomboco foram apenas um dos resultados dessas iniciativas progressistas a partir de Brazzaville, além da continuidade da guerrilha de Pierre Mulele e da própria consolidação do poder progressista no Congo (Brazzaville).

Os guerrilheiros angolanos forjados nessas lutas inquebrantáveis, foram utilizados depois para a abertura da Frente Leste do MPLA já no início da década de 70 do século XX, fazendo progredir em direcção a sul a Libertação em África, tendo como rectaguarda o território zambiano e ponto de apoio logístico principal Dar es Salam; muitos dos chefes estiveram na proclamação das FAPLA.

A abertura da Frente Leste foi determinante para o “apartheid” se decidir a envolver no Exercício ALCORA, dando início à “border war” em 1968 e presença de suas forças no sudeste angolano, facto que por si comprova quanto era negativamente avaliado o poder militar do Estado Novo em Angola.

A abertura da Frente Leste obrigou por outro lado a internacional fascista (com Mobutu incluído) a reforçar as linhas etno-nacionaistas da FLEC, da FNLA e da UNITA…

Com o 25 de Abril de 1974, o Exercício ALCORA desmorona-se dos termos previstos pela internacional fascista que incluía Portugal, a Rodésia, a África do Sul e alguns aliados africanos infiltrados pelo seu sistema e pela CIA.

O plano de Mobutu para assaltar Cabinda e o norte de Angola, foi então “reconvertido”, o que só por si era um obstáculo à progressão em direcção sul das linhas progressistas a partir de Dar es Salam e Brazzaville.

Com a data de independência de Angola à vista, Mobutu “fazia-se ao bife”, sob os auspícios da CIA e tacitamente alinhado com o “apartheid”, enquanto os portugueses, perdidos nas lutas internas do MFA entre o 25 de abril de 1974 e o 25 de Novembro de 1975, iam respondendo conforme cada tendência política.

O Governador de Cabinda de então, Themudo Barata, veladamente alinhou com Mobutu e a FLEC, por efeito das políticas do general Spínola, conferindo à FLEC uma representatividade que não era internacionalmente reconhecida, numa polémica que é sustentada até nossos dias, com muitas entidades portuguesas a seguirem a trilha spinolista desde o 25 de Novembro de 1975.

As FLECs contam com apoios desse tipo em Portugal desde então.

Na aproximação do 11 de Novembro, Mobutu apoia a FLEC e a FNLA, de forma a intervir em Angola ao abrigo da CIA, pelo que angolanos e cubanos tiveram de travar as batalhas decisivas de Cabinda, Quifangondo e Ebo, a fim de ser proclamada a República Popular de Angola.

Em Cuba o Comandante Fidel apercebeu-se da importância de defender a capital angolana e simultaneamente Cabinda, pois sem isso seria impossível a progressão da linha da frente infrmal entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, para a Linha da Frente que mis tarde daria origem à SADC.

Pouco relevo se tem dado à batalha de Cabinda, mas o general de corpo de exército das Forças Armadas Revolucionárias de Cuba, Ramón Espinosa Martin, elaborou um relato completo dos acontecimentos no seu livro “La Batalla de Cabinda”.

Desse livro destaco uma das lições geoestratégicas do Comandante Fidel em África.

“Mensage de Salida nº. 58

Destino: Luanda.

Al: 1er. Comdt. Arguelles- Gondin.

El comandante en Jefenos há pedido les trasmitamos el seguiente texto:

Para Angola se envio todo lo solicitado e incluso más.

Se decidió reforzar Cabinda com recursos absolutamente adicionales.

Se envio também personal que estuviera en disposición de combatir.

Cabinda es el punto más débil y peor defendido.

Si se pierde Cabinda no lo podran recuperar más.

Angola sin Cabinda no podrá consolidar su independenciaporque alli están los recursos económicos fundamentales.

Mobutu quiere apoderar-se de Cabinda y tarde o temprano la va a agredir, sobre todo si sabe que está indefensa.

Es necessário que ustedes entiendan esto y se lo hagan compreender al MPLA.

Se acordo además enviar a Angola el personal necessário para la técnica soviética.

Por esto no lo creemos que se deba continuar debilitando Cabinda.

Si ya bajaron los morteros 120 en Bengela, úsenlos entonces en Angola pero no reduzcan más los medios destinados a Cabinda.

Debemos atenernos a los planos acordados.

Ahora se lucha en Angola pero no sabemos lo que puede ocurrir en Cabinda y no debemos dejar nuestro personal alli debilitado, ya que en caso de ataque por fuerzas d Zaire tendrán que luchar muy duramente y prácticamente solos.

En Angola tienen ya bastantes médios.

Estan recebuiendo además el material de otros países y se puede continuar reforzando desde aqui com personal cubano.

Si Hay peligro real en Luanda es mejor reforzar esa dirección com médios de las otras escuelas antes que descuidar Cabinda.

Ustedes tienen ahi varias opciones posibles cuando lo consideren realmente necesario.

Los ruego analicen com serenidade estos hechos.

Si se gana la guerra en Angola Y se pierde en Cabinda, se habra perdido mucho.

Hay que tratr de obtener los objectivos completos en ambos puntos.

Saludos, Fidel.

Firmado: Colomé.

18.10.75”.

A Operação Carlota estava lançada e a RPA levaria a linha da frente para a sua própria fronteira sul, o que obrigaria o “apartheid” a reinventar e reconverter a “border war”, nunca desperdiçando o que quer que fosse dos “bons ofícios” à portuguesa no quadro dos sucessivos governos de após 25 de Novembro de 1975, tendo em conta a absorção de muitos conceitos e práticas do colonialismo português e dos nexos de inteligência que todos eles propiciavam.

Isso perdurou não só enquanto esteve em vigência o “apartheid”, mas também quando as políticas hegemónicas unipolares incentivadas pela “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se fortaleceram e impactaram da maneira mais terrível (choque neoliberal entre 1992 e 2002), quanto da maneira mais “persuasiva” (quando se foi evidenciando a terapia neoliberal em Angola, de 2002 aos nossos dias)… para esse efeito a inteligência económica dos sucessivos governos de Portugal, vassala dos poderosos, tal como do Bilderberg, esperaram a sua hora!

Em relação a Angola, por alturas do passamento físico do Comandante Fidel, foi justo o que escrevi na Embaixada de Cuba enquanto “soldado do MPLA” e antigo combatente angolano, face à fotografia do Comandante, insigne lutador pelas mais justas causas libertárias de África:

“… De Argel ao Cabo…

Cavalgando com Fidel!

… Levando o ardor progressista desde contra o baluarte do colonialismo francês no Norte de África…

… Até contra o bastião mais retrógrado e fascista que existia à face da Terra após a IIª Guerra Mundial, em seu perverso domínio em toda a África Austral…

… Precisamente no sentido inverso ao projetado pelo império anglo-saxónico sob inspiração de Cecil John Rhodes… do Cabo ao Cairo…

… Em 55 anos foi de facto um vulcão libertário que sacudiu África e se distendeu, um vulcão libertário cuja energia tem aqui e agora, no berço da humanidade, oportunidade para muito melhor se refletir, se equacionar e inteligentemente aproveitar!...

… Quanto os africanos não têm saudavelmente absorvido do legítimo contributo e histórica responsabilidade revolucionária cubana, por via das armas enquanto houvera que ser, por via da educação e da saúde enquanto nesses 55 anos o foi, o é… e o será no porvir!?

Vencido o colonialismo pelas armas… vencido o apartheid pelas armas… vencidas algumas de suas sequelas pelas armas… quando face às bombas nucleares nenhum combatente progressista recuou… a paz, a harmonia e a luta contra o subdesenvolvimento tornou-se mais possível que nunca!...”

          Libraries of Business Process Segment Links    
I think I have seen this before, but was reminded of it by some recent work.  Why not have libraries of the graphs of typical business process segments?  Then allow us to paste these together to create complete or partial business process models?  And then edit these to make them come closer to what is really done?   Model with simulation to compare the result versus the ideal?

The below shows how this is done to detect money laundering, using Linkurious, but I am suggesting could also be used to model and refine legitimate process.   That would require a library of graph segments representing specific and known common business processes, and a way to link them together. Perhaps from  business transaction flows?   And create a process model along the way. Anyone done this?

Fighting financial crimes and money laundering with graph data
Posted by Elise Devaux 

Fighting financial crimes is a daily battle worldwide. Organizations have to deploy intelligent systems to prevent and detect wrongdoings, such as anti-money laundering (AML) control frameworks. We’ll see in this blog post how graph technologies can reinforce those systems.

Using graph technologies to fight financial crimes

Media previewIn today’s complex economy, law enforcement and financial organizations fight against a wide range of financial crimes: embezzlement, tax evasion, extortion, corruption, terrorism funding or money laundering, to name a few. While tracking down those activities, governments and financial institutions have to deal with a fast moving financial crime landscape and a growing volume of information of various formats.

Graph technologies like Linkurious can be powerful assets to help fight financial crimes. They provide exhaustive overviews of the different entities and their connections. And they support complex data queries on large data-sets in a near-real time environment.

In this article, we’ll focus on anti-money laundering procedures and explore a specific case with a graph approach. .... " 


          Wimbledon Voice Interaction with Watson   
Had seen several interesting example of the interaction with Watson using voice interfaces.  See my previous post on their work with Samsung-Harman and hospitals.   Here is another example, for the upcoming Wimbleton tournament, called 'Fred'.    Note the use of voice-anthropomorphism using a name.   We are starting to expect ambient voice interaction.

Wimbledon, IBM use Watson AI to help fans get more from matches    By Jeremy Kahn
(Bloomberg) -- The Wimbledon tennis tournament, which starts Monday, will use IBM's artificial intelligence agent Watson to help direct fans to the most exciting matches, automatically generate video highlight reels and guide guests through the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

A voice-activated digital assistant called "Fred," named after British tennis great Fred Perry, will help those attending Wimbledon find their way around. Visitors can ask Fred for directions to the nearest strawberry stand, how to buy a Wimbledon towel or who is playing right now on Centre Court. Fred will also help visitors find other activities -- such as the children's play area -- they might want to check out while at the Club. The assistant is powered by Watson's natural language processing ability. .... " . 
          Assistants in the Hospital   
One of the earliest suggestions for virtual assistants was to have them answer questions and perform simple non-medical tasks in hospitals and other health care facilities.  Huge amounts of professional time are expended this way.   Issues of data and patient security quickly came up.  It was said the popular assistants could not handle those issues.  But it appears work has been under way by Harman and IBM Watson to address the problem.  Note that Harman is now owned by Samsung.

 " .... Thanks to AI, you'll never be ignored at a hospital again  From CNET Magazine: IBM's Watson takes on the scut work at a Philadelphia hospital, so nurses can focus on what matters.   By Shara Tibken

It's why Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia decided to work with audio giant Harman and IBM's Watson artificial intelligence technology. Together, they developed smart speakers that will respond to about a dozen commands. When a patient says "Watson," the speakers can, for instance, play calming sounds and adjust the room's lighting, thermostat and blinds.

"This is a way for patients to get some simple comfort measures addressed just by speaking," says Dr. Andrew Miller, associate chief medical officer at the Philadelphia hospital group. "How great is that?"

For the hospital, it's just the beginning. ... "

Unclear what plans are underway to roll this out more broadly.   Beyond just the voice interaction it does imply that considerable infrastructure changes have to be made to implement physical interactions with rooms, say to close the blinds or even adjust the lights.
          The Wave of a New AI   
Nice, non-technical overview in CACM look at emerging technologies that are supporting advances in AI.  Useful with management to consider areas of interest.   Will this push us over the hype edge for real intelligent value?

Artificial Intelligence Poised to Ride a New Wave    By Gary Anthes 
Communications of the ACM, Vol. 60 No. 7, Pages 19-21

Artificial intelligence (AI), once described as a technology with permanent potential, has come of age in the past decade. Propelled by massively parallel computer systems, huge datasets, and better algorithms, AI has brought a number of important applications, such as image- and speech-recognition and autonomous vehicle navigation, to near-human levels of performance.

Now, AI experts say, a wave of even newer technology may enable systems to understand and react to the world in ways that traditionally have been seen as the sole province of human beings. These technologies include algorithms that model human intuition and make predictions in the face of incomplete knowledge, systems that learn without being pre-trained with labeled data, systems that transfer knowledge gained in one domain to another, hybrid systems that combine two or more approaches, and more powerful and energy-efficient hardware specialized for AI. ....

          Samsung Bixby Starts to Roll   
Samsung Reports:

*After launch, Bixby's language support will initially begin with Korean, and expand to English and then Chinese. Plans for further language support are tentative. Bixby voice controls will soon be integrated into some of your favorite native apps.

Three ways to engage, not just one
Since Bixby understands talk, text, and taps, you're able to use the way that's most convenient at the time. You can also switch between modes whenever you need to. ... " 

Also expect this to ultimately move onto their broad line of appliances.

          [uhindsv46]:How to better control the golf ball head - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   

Much better control provide simple weight training is golf-specific immediately about your body. If you strengthen your muscles, you improve functional strength which automatically gives more control and balance. Some people believe that cause weight training, you will feel to lose.


The mental game has several levels of depth as the human spirit. First, let’s discuss your rational mind and what has to do with course management. If you do not very often play, or even if, you maybe do a sense of awareness on the golf course in times; noticed not only if you notice that the birds or the wind blows – is more than that. Get in a zone of thinking like a pro. Funding your exact yardage, and the way the wind blows you know out of bounds is right, sand is said links, long bad, have a flier lie the air is short you hard and last time, seven a beat iron from the same place that you came up short. This intellectual address is just as important to the golf ball how beat the right Club. Intelligent people say that what determines how good are your good pictures isn’t a decent game, but rather how bad are your bad shots, need each action to increase your chance of success if a perfect shot not you met.
 
However none of these States of mind are accessible when they are created on a solid foundation of gratitude. What does that mean? Someone once said, “A good way is spoiled that golf.” It can be sure when you cultivate a mindset of gratitude not. If you take field to the first tee, all appreciate a minute, which will take place; a game with your friends for a few hours, the air smells fresh, you have to make 18 holes to you good shots and 19 hole if you need to drown a bad trip in a whisky sour. Regardless of anything are privileged, play for a few hours of life to spend one of the greatest games on Earth. If you really do feel in your body, that my friend is the fulfilment of your deepest level – the golfer’s soul.
 
Subscribe most teaching professionals, to the standard ball position theory, as do most players and the most professional golfer. This theory advocates the ball’s position according to the Club used change. If taken golf lessons or read my golf tips have, probably know with this theory.
 
A third consideration with ball position is weather. If it is windy, tee make the ball higher when you generate using the wind to loft are. The added loft allows the wind can the ball further wear. Tea you the ball to produce line in baseball by car if you shot a low against the wind, meeting with lower are. This type of shot cuts through the wind and rolling further than a shot with loft.
 
Much golf instruction is based on the standard theory. But not everyone per lesson in favour of it. David Leadbetter, taught numerous per golfer, Nick price, and several books written who offers a different approach. It is stressed he put in his golf instruction books. Like the standard theory, it makes sense.

Skelbiame prof.  Vytauto Radžvilo pranešimą „Katalikybė ir politinė laisvė“, skaitytą Adolfo Damušio politinių studijų dienų konferencijoje „Mūsų šimtmetis: tauta demokratinės valstybės kūrybos ir griovimo kryžkelėse“, vykusioje birželio 16–17 dienomis Vilniuje, Lietuvos nacionalinėje Martyno Mažvydo bibliotekoje. Taip pat skelbiame ir po pranešimo sekusią diskusiją.

***

Šio pasisakymo temą įkvėpė kai kurių visuotinai žinomų faktų apmąstymas. Visi gerai žinome, kad kovoje už Lietuvos laisvę dalyvavo įvairių politinių pažiūrų žmonės, tačiau nepaneigiama yra tai, kad lemtingiausiais momentais, tokiais kaip 1941 m. birželio sukilimo atveju, pagrindinė jėga buvo katalikai. O šiandien, kaip žinome, milžiniškos politinės kovos Europoje epicentru tapo Lenkija, kuri yra vertinama labai kritiškai ir puolama. Bet jei atsiribojame nuo viso šio puolimo ir išsikeliame principinį klausimą, kas yra Lenkijos „maištininkai“, atsakymas yra akivaizdus: tai prieš komunizmą kovojusio Lenkijos „Solidarumo“ branduolys ir smogiamoji jėga. Ir vėl keistas sutapimas, tas branduolys daugiausia yra katalikai. Šis faktas nėra atsitiktinis. Matyt, jis liudija, kad katalikai turi ypatingą jautrumą tam, ką pavadinčiau pavojumi laisvei.

Kitas dalykas, kuris paskatino prabilti šia tema, yra nuolatinė kontroversija dėl 1941 m. sukilimo. Visi jaučiame, kad už visos šitos polemikos ir nuolatinio sukilimo juodinimo turi slypėti kažkokia fundamentalesnė priežastis nei oficialiai įvardinama. Vėl gi šitas sukilimas nuolatos svarstomas iš esmės tarptautiniame kontekste, o ką tai reiškia? Kad galbūt dėl jo atminties kova vyksta todėl, kad šis sukilimas gali priminti kažką nepaprastai svarbaus ne tik Lietuvai, bet ir visai Europai. Galbūt net pasauliui.

Kad tai suprastume, pirmiausia turime pasiaiškinti: o kas apskritai yra politika? Šiame pranešime politiką apibrėžiu kaip praktinį žmogiškumo įtvirtinimo būdą, t.y. kaip įrankį, kurio pagalba žmogus apsibrėžia tai, kas jis yra. Ši apibrėžtis atsiskleidžia per konkrečiai įkūnijamą ir sukuriamą politinėmis priemonėmis žmogiškų santykių lauką. Visi politiniai klausimai, jeigu mes juos apmątome ne paviršutiniškai, galiausiai yra klausimas, kas yra žmogus ir ką reiškia būti žmogumi. Jeigu mes ginčijamės, kokie turi būti valstybėje mokesčiai, atrodo, jog tai klausimas, neturintis net menkiausių sąsajų su žmogaus esme, bet iš tikrųjų aiškėja, kad ta sąsaja yra. Nes šio klausimo tikroji potekstė yra: kas yra teisingumas? Visi šiuo požiūriu politiškai svarstomi tarsi labai konkretūs klausimai galiausiai reikalauja kiekvieną akimirką apsibrėžti, kas yra žmogiška ir kas nežmogiška. Ir būtent dėl tos priežasties esminis dalykas čia tampa tiesa, kurią nuostabiai išsakė dar Aristotelis. Jis pasakė, kad jeigu žmogui nereikia filosofijos, jis yra gyvulys arba Dievas. Ir labai keistas, nors natūralus sutapimas, kad pagalvojus atidžiau, jeigu žmogui nereikia politikos ir polio, jis yra gyvulys arba Dievas.

Mes, būdami žmonės, esame be galo įvairūs ir skirtingi. Maža to, mes iš tikrųjų galime norėti begalės dalykų, todėl politikos klausimas yra toks: kaip sukurti žmogišką tvarką sąlygomis, kai iš principo galime norėti ir siekti bet ko. Taigi tam, kad tvarka būtų teisinga, reikia sampratos, kas yra žmogus. Išankstinės sampratos, kuri dvasiškai įsteigia politinių diskusijų lauką. Graikai savo filosofija mėgino šitą lauką įsteigti. Ką davė Vakarų politikai katalikybė? Ji davė žmogaus viziją arba sampratą, kuri privalo galioti universaliai. Ką tai reiškia politikai? Kuomet vyksta konkretūs politiniai ginčai, ką daryti ar nedaryti vienoje ar kitoje situacijoje, visus šiuos ginčus grindžiantis pamatas yra tas nebyliai jų fone esantis tikrojo arba tobulojo žmogaus vaizdinys arba idealas.

Šiam vaizdiniui yra būdingi du klodai. Pirmiausia, jis galioja kiekvienam iš mūsų, nes pretenduoja į universalumą. Antras lemiamai svarbus dalykas yra, kad norint apsispręsti politiškai net pačiu konkrečiausiu klausimu, pirmiausia reikia padaryti išankstinį judesį – apsispręsti to vaizdinio atžvilgiu. O apsispręsti vaizdinio atžvilgiu yra be galo sunku. Kaip jau Platonas intuityviai suprato, norint apsispręsti reikia, kad tavo aukštesnė sielos dalis priverstų klausyti žemesnę, kuri tave skatina, net stumia apsispręsti taip, kaip tau patogiau, kaip tau patinka, naudinga, bet ne pagal visuotinę normą. Būtent šia giliausia prasme katalikiška politika buvo iš tiesų politinės laisvės erdvė, nes tai, kas vyko tarsi žemiškame politikos pasaulyje, buvo grindžiama nematoma dvasine erdve, kuri suteikia politiniams veiksmams reikalingus orientyrus ir gaires. Baigiant šitą istorijos atkarpą galima pasakyti, kad modernusis pasaulis, kai jis pradėjo pakeisti katalikybę, neišvengiamai turėjo sugriauti būtent šitą nematomą dvasinių orientyrų erdvę. Sugriauti tobulo žmogaus etaloną arba viziją.

Šitą žmogų pakeitė vadinamasis modernus individas, kurio esminis skirtumas nuo tradicinio kataliko yra labai paprastas, bet kartu lemtingai svarbus – jis tiesiog nebežino, ką reiškia būti žmogumi. Net nesuvokia, kas tai yra, nors save ir toliau iš inercijos šitaip vadina. Vadinasi, tokioje situacijoje iš esmės keičiasi pati politinė erdvė ir joje galiojančios žaidimo taisyklės. Jeigu neturiu mato, kuriuo matuoju savo dalyvavimą politiniame gyvenime, ginčuose, net ir kovose, tokiu atveju aš tampu laisvas visiškai nauju ir anksčiau neregėtu būdu. Laisvė tokiu atveju yra beatodairiškai siekti, ko noriu arba ko trokštu. Ir tokiu atveju kliūtis mano laisvei jau nebegali būti žmogaus viduje keliamos normos ir reikalavimai. Ta kliūtis, kaip jau aiškiai suprato moderno politinės filosofijos pradininkas Hobsas, iš esmės yra išorės kliūtys. Kitaip tariant, tokią laisvę gali riboti tik išorinė fizinė prievarta arba, kalbant paprasčiau, galios stoka. Tokiu būdu, praradus katalikybės laiduotą dvasinės tvarkos viziją, politika iš esmės tampa grynu galios santykių lauku. Čia nėra bendro pagrindo, kuriuo žmonės galėtų susitarti ir bendrauti. Kitaip tariant, apeliuojama ne į universalią žmogišką tvarką, bet priešingai, nauja žmogiška tvarka yra kuriama prievartos aktais. Ir žmogus tampa tuo, ką jis šitais aktais sugeba įtvirtinti. Bet kuris žmogaus troškimais, jeigu tik turi galios pakankamai įtvirtinti, tampa oficialiai pripažinta vadinamąja žmogiška savybe. Tokiu režimu funkcionuoja vadinamosios žmogaus teisės.

Iš to galima suprasti, kad tokioje politikoje negali būti politinės laisvės. Ta laisvė, kuri vadinama laisve, iš tikrųjų reiškia, kad žmonių santykis grindžiamas gryna galia ir kiekvieną akimirką funkcionuoji politikos lauke, kaip sakytų Hėgelis, arba pono, arba vergo režimu. Šis naujas politikos bruožas būdingas visai moderniai politikai ir visoms ideologijoms: marksizmui, nacionalsocializmui, fašizmui ir galiausiai grynai sekuliaristiniam nacionalizmui. Tokiais atvejais tai, kas yra žmogiškumas, apibrėžia partija, valstybė ir pan. Kiekvienu atveju tai yra galios agentūra. Taip reliatyviu tampa pats supratimas, kas yra žmogus. Tai paaiškina, kodėl tik katalikai – kurie jaučia, kad politiką turi grįsti tam tikra objektyvi dvasinė tvarka - gali taip jautriai pajusti ateinančią prievartą. Jeigu žmogaus vaizdinys yra sureliatyvinamas, jeigu viskas remiasi galia, tai tokiu atveju atsiranda galimybė žmogų apakinti ir užhipnotizuoti, pažadant, kad jo troškimai bus išpildyti nepriklausomai nuo jų teisingumo.

Čia glūdi priežastis, kodėl didelė dalis Lietuvos visuomenės 1940 m. nepajėgė susiorientuoti iš karto, kol nepatyrė prievartos savo kailiu. Tai politikos sampratai ji buvo visiškai neparuošta. Ji nebuvo parengta susidurti su tokio tipo politika. Ir visiškai nuoseklu bei logiška, kad būtent katalikiški sluoksniai pirmieji pajuto ir suprato, kas iš tiesų vyksta, kad vyksta pirmiausiai žmogaus sielos naikinimas. Štai kodėl sukilimas neišvengiamai turėjo būti pirmiausia jų pastangų rezultatas.

O kokia yra šios katalikiškos laisvės sampratos ir sukilimo pamoka Europai? Lietuvoje katalikai vadovavo tiek antisovietinei, tiek antinacistinei rezistencijai. Kitaip tariant, jie reprezentuoja visą kovos prieš tai, ką sąlygiškai pavadinsiu moderniuoju totalitarizmu, lauką. Tuo tarpu Europoje šito niekur neįvyko dėl paprastos priežasties. Didžioji Europos tragedija buvo Hitlerio pergalės, kurios parklupdė Europą. Savaime tai buvo milžiniškas blogis, bet yra nesuvokiama, kokia prasme Hitlerio pergalės buvo paslėptas blogis. Mes užmirštame, kad 4 dešimtmetyje dėl viešpatavimo Europoje kovojo nacionalsocializmas ir komunizmas. Hitlerio pergalė Europoje lėmė, kad komunizmas niekur, išskyrus trumpai vadinamąją respublikinę Ispaniją, neparodė savo veido. Nes jis negavo progos. Štai kodėl kai visoje Europoje buvo kalbama apie nacistinę rezistenciją, buvo labai patogu nutylėti, kad antinacistinės rezistencijos branduolys tokiose šalyse kaip Prancūzija taip pat milžinišku mastu buvo katalikai. Bet joje dėl visai kitų motyvų ir priežasčių dalyvavo ir komunistai. Todėl neatsitiktinai 6 dešimtmečio viduryje buvo nepastebimai perrašyta antinacistinės rezistencijos istorija, visiškai sureikšminant dviejų totalitarinių ideologijų kovą – tarp nacionalsocializmo ir bolševizmo – kuri paradoksaliai buvo giminingų mentalinių ir politinių dalinių kova. Ir sureikšminus šitą kovą buvo užgožtas ir paslėptas tikrasis katalikų vaidmuo, kad katalikiška dvasinės erdvės ir žmogaus samprata grindžiama politinė laisvė yra vienintelė įmanoma autentiška laisvė ir dabar.

Klausimai

Simonas Jazavita: Užsiminėte, kad Birželio sukilimas gali būti svarbus Europai ir pasauliui. Man atrodo, kad tie žmonės, kurie ėmėsi to darbo, matė grėsmes nevienareikšmiškai. Aišku, didžiausia grėsmė matyta iš bolševikų pusės. Kita vertus, net Kazys Škirpa, paklaustas savo šalininkų, sako: tai negi jūs taip pasitikit vokiečiais? Jie mums klūdys. Gal tai ir yra tas nepatogusis klausimas? Visada yra patogiau parodyti žmones, kurie vienai santvarkai labai palankūs buvo, o priešinosi tik kažkuriai vienai.

Vytautas Radžvilas: Jūsų įžvalga tiksli, bet sakyčiau, kad ji nevisiškai išsami. Jeigu kalbame apie Europą, tai reikia turėti galvoje, kad 8 dešimtmečio viduryje, apie 1975 metus, lyg mostelėjus burtų lazdele visos Europos sovietinio tipo kompartijos staigiai pradėjo demokratizuotis, liberalizuotis ir atsirado vadinamasis eurokomunizmas. Jeigu šiandien kalbame apie dabartinę Europos Sąjungos struktūrą ir net jos pareigūnus, kodėl jiems svarbu ištrinti sukilimo atminimą? Todėl, kad šitaip galima būtų ištrinti suvokimą, kad komunizmo šmėkla ir šiandien kybo virš Europos. Kad komunizmas įgijo tik naują pavidalą. Šie klausimai nekeliami, nes ta atmintis yra gana sėkmingai ištrinta. Pavyzdžiui, visai neseniai Europos Komisijos pirmininku buvo Barroso, o juk jis yra buvęs vienas iš Portugalijos komunistų partijos lyderių. Maža to, net ne sovietinio tipo, o iš esmės maoistinės partijos, taigi dar radikalesnės. Kol šito nesuvokiame, klykiame apie Gorbačiovą ir komunistus Rytuose ir nematome, kas dedasi. Yra dar akivaizdesnių pavyzdžių. Tarkime, dabartinė Europos Sąjungos užsienio reikalų ministrė (taip vadinu dėl patogumo) F. Mogherini buvo Italijos komunistinio jaunimo lygos lyderė. Kitaip tariant, pirmoji komjaunuolė. Laisvos, demokratiškos, antikomunistinės ir taip toliau Lietuvos Respublikos užsienio reikalų ministras yra buvęs Visasąjunginės Lenino komunistinės jaunimo sąjungos centro komiteto darbuotojas. Niekam neužkliūna ir tai, kad šalių prezidentais tampa iki pat galo ištikimi anai imperijai buvę žmonės. Sužaidus su vadinamąja jaunojo Markso tematika, įtikinėjama, jog buvo kažkoks labai keistas komunizmo nukrypimas, kuris pasireiškė Rusijoje žiauriais nusikaltimais, bet tai esą buvo ne komunizmo nusikaltimai, ne jo prigimtyje slypinčios galimybės, o viso labo kažkokio žmogėdros Stalino reikalas. Šitaip buvo meistriškai reabilituota komunistų valdžia dabartinėje Vakarų Europoje ir Europos Sąjungoje. Todėl jau pats Sukilimo faktas yra gyvas įrodymas, kad tai buvo lygiaverčiai dalykai. Štai kodėl jį norima priversti pamiršti. 

Boguslavas Gruževskis: O gal čia ne komunizmo problema? Gal tai, kas dabar randama Barroso ir kitų nuostatose, nieko bendro neturi su komunizmo sistema? Gal čia yra kažkas giliau, ko jūs nei vienas neįvardinot? Galbūt čia žmogiškos prigimties, žmogiškumo, jo esmės, kuriuos prof. Radžvilas paminėjo ir savo pranešime, problema? O kaip mes jį pavadinsim, tai jau kitas klausimas. Yra kažkas, kas stumia tą kažką, ko tik šiandien nemokame įvardinti.

Vytautas Radžvilas: Tai tik rodo, kad nebūdamas politologas turite puikią nuojautą, kurios šaltinis yra bendras išsilavinimas. Be jokios abejonės, mano kalboje tai numanoma, bet turėjau 20 minučių ir todėl nemačiau galimybės ir prasmės šnekėti negalėdamas to aptarti išsamiau. Nėra joks atsitiktinumas, kad vykstant diskusijoms dėl Lisabonos sutarties, pirmuose jos variantuose, kuriuos pats mačiau, dar figūravo teiginys, kad krikščionybė yra Europos ištakos. Galutiniam variante tai išnyko. Ką tai reiškia? Katalikybė įkūnija Vakarų krikščionijos žmogaus idealų tipą, jeigu atsiribosime nuo religinių dimensijų. O kas prasideda nuo Renesanso? Vadinamoji Revoliucija, kurios esmė – šitą tipą visiškai likviduoti. Todėl nuo XV a. vyksta permanentinė revoliucija, kuri realizuojama per skirtingus utopinius projektus. Kitaip tariant, tradicinį katalikišką žmogaus tipą norėjo likviduoti visi: komunistai, liberalai ir t.t. Europoje šitas projektas yra tęsiamas toliau. Čia jau yra antropologinės inžinerijos reikalai. Vadinamoji „ortodoksinė“ rusiškoji komunizmo versija buvo pakeista kita, vadinamojo vokiškojo kritinio komunizmo versija, kurią įkūnija Frankfurto mokykla. Įdomiausia tai, kad šita versija yra radikalesnė už sovietinę, bet įgyvendinama jau be prievartos. Rusiškoji komunizmo versija iš dalies žlugo todėl, kad pradėję 1917 m. nuo nepaprastai radikalių dalykų, pvz., seksualinės revoliucijos, jie vėliau pasidavė kultūrinės krikščioniškos tradicijos spaudimui ir šia prasme buvo nepakankamai revoliucingi. Todėl garsioji 1968 m. revoliucija pasakė: Marksas senukas, jį reikia išmesti į istorijos šiukšlyną, jis buvo nepakankamai revoliucingas. Ir todėl Revoliucija dabar tęsiasi dar radikaliau. Todėl tokių sukilimų prisiminimas šiai Revoliucijai yra lyg nuodai.

Laurynas Kasčiūnas: Kodėl krikščioniškoji tradicija yra tai, ką siekiama eliminuoti iš Europos gyvenimo ir nustumti į paraštes? Kai eliminuoji Europos sielą, jos tapatybę, po to gali tą tokią neaiškią mūsų socialinę masę naudoti įvairiems socialinės inžinerijos projektams. Tam pirmiausia reikia eliminuoti nacionalinę valstybę, krikščionybę, o tada jau gali pradėti įgyvendinti savo projektus. Visada gerai tokius sudėtingus intelektualinius dalykus išvesti į palyginimus. Dabar Kaczynskis daromas antieuropietiškumo simboliu ir grėsme. O koks nors Cohn-Benditas – žaliasis, kuris dar prieš 30 metų kalbėjo, kaip reikia pedofiliją įteisinti - šiandien vertinamas kaip vienas iš jų žaliosios tradicijos ideologų. Taip yra perkainojamos vertybės. Žmogus, buvęs „Solidarumo“ branduolyje, Lenkijos tėvas, dabar yra stumiamas į tokią poziciją. Arba pažiūrėkime, kaip Europos Parlamente yra vertinama istorija. Šarlis de Golis nėra Europos tėvas tik dėl to, kad kažkada kalbėjo apie nacionalinį interesą, nacionalines valstybes, o įvairūs federalistai, Spinelli ir panašūs komunistai yra laikomi Europos tėvais įkūrėjais. Buvusiems komunistams labai lengva dabar kalbėti, jie neturi nacionalinių valstybių suvokimo ir labai lengvai tampa federacinės Europos šalininkais. Tai gerai parodo, kaip čia susijungia ideologijos.

          My Ideal Stock Report   
So, if I was going to create my own stock report and put what I wanted in it, this is what it would look like right here:

May 10, 2009 - Sunday Evening

The market had a big turnaround Friday to a higher high for the Dow30 and the SP-500 and clears the path for a continued uptrend. The Nasdaq Composite looks like it is taking a rest as technology stocks have been far ahead of the other indices these past weeks. The financials catapulted the Dow and S&P and these two charts look very strong for more likely gains.

At the same time we have euphoria with bullish market conditions that easily gives profits to the lazy investor we cannot ignore the technical indicators that are giving overbought conditions on a short term basis. The VIX-X, Chicago Board of Options Market Volatility Index is a measure of “fear” and this looks like we should have a short term correction that may start this week. Sentimentrader’s Smart money/dumb money index and Telechart’s T2108 chart shows strong overbought conditions and S&P Oscillator shows mild overbought, Investor’s Intelligence is a slower indicator to develop but confirming other indicators. Remember these are short term indicators and will “reset” themselves once we have a short term correction.

We then would look to see if the market is going to have higher highs to resume this uptrend we have been on since March 10th.

REPEAT FROM Thursday Night: This may be a good time to close long positions on this temporary “pop” as we are seeing many stocks showing topping patterns that were once momentum stocks. We use these “early scouts” as indicators that people are starting to take profits on the high fliers.

As you have been reading in this report the last few days that many stocks are getting dangerous to buy long, remain nimble and set tighter trailing stop losses because it would only take 1-2 days of sharp corrections to give up all the long profits we have made recently. Most long positions in the stock list below are now closed as we move mostly to intraday trading (scalping) tomorrow.

The stocks that have been the hottest runs or what could be called momentum stocks, ASH, CIEN, ARO, BIDU, CLF, MEE (and many others we don’t have listed) are going to correct hardest and it is likely that we see some rebound attempt next week but my hunch is that the market will start breaking down and short opportunities with short swings will be very profitable.

So in technical analysis terms, it is possible that today was a key reversal indicator (short term) and that is my personal hunch. We are going into a transitional period where we have few positions and most will likely be now short. You could play part of your opening short positions tomorrow early and add to them as any bounce in the market occurs.

Note the life insurance stocks had a big move up today against the tide because some insurance companies were listed by the Federal Reserve as passing the stress test and not needing additional funding. The whole sector moved up, PRU, MET, HIG, PFG.


The Oil index moved up 4% today to close at $58.67 and is still shadowing the direction of the indices. Moving averages, MACD, OBV, stochastics and price charges are all starting to turn up on this sector, use XOIL as index.

Intermediate Trade Positions: NGS, Natural Gas Services is showing a nice uptrend along with the natural gas ETF, UNG. For 10 ½ months natural gas has experienced a steep drop and this recent rise in the last 8 days is the most significant of all. It is likely to see a little selling in this sector first before higher advances are made. So the best process is to let it run its current run and then pullback before opening a position.

It is good to see the companion sector of oil moving up as well so monitoring XOIL and other oil and gas stocks like XTO, EOG, COG, GMXR, APA, ATPG, CNQ, and SNP would be good to get a feel of the oil and gas sector.


Swing Trades: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill has more downside but let it rebound up to $80+ before considering opening a small short position.

MEE rebounded Friday but monitor this as a potential swing short trade assuming it does not make a higher high over last Thursday’s high. It looks a little on the weak side so be prepared to open a small short if it doesn’t move above $23.50 tomorrow.

Potential short swings:

ABG, Asburn Automotive is starting to turn over but still needs another spike down tomorrow to confirm a short candidates. This needs a little more time to convince us that it does to go higher highs before shorting.

ADCT, ADC Telecomm looks like a very good short idea that was opened today and is likely going to break down over the next two weeks. Worth a short position tomorrow.

REPEAT: For aggressive traders or very small position: In the next 4 to 6 weeks, look for GM, General Motors to do a reverse split and watch for opportunity to sell short or work with long put options or selling calls short. This won’t happen for some time. They plan to do a 1 for 100 shares reverse split. That will put the stock at $185 at current pricing and reverse splits are desperation attempts to stay listed on the exchange, usually done by deeply troubled companies financially. This last gasp for air strategy rarely works.

Day Traders/Intraday stock ideas: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill swing trade short was covered Friday morning and may give another short opportunity (2nd helping).

MEE, Massey Energy and PCX, Patriot Coal both had excellent scalps, 8.5% for MEE and 11.8% for PCX. Look for a slight pop and a drop but don’t expect for the same big profits as on Friday. These could give both long and short scalps. Intraday trading is pumping out strong profits most every day now and I see that pattern continuing. As usual, look for good intraday trades in GMXR, FSLR, ICE, BLK, CME, BIDU, AMZN, WHR, IPI, POT, MON, MOS, COG, EOG, XTO, AAPL, WFC, JPM, BAC, WFC, JPM, C, and USB or any high volume, high volatility stocks. CSIQ and STP had big short scalps, 9.3% for CSIQ and 10.8% for STP.

Progress Report: We have had numerous requests for the real-time the Trading Room and we will be more aggressive with the programming of this software. Our first programming attempt last summer was abandoned and more capable programmers are on the task now. We will keep you posted but our estimate is mid June if all goes well. The delivery of information and quality of ideas will be very unique-there won’t be anything like this!

Thoughts: Keep steady, calm, decisive, aggressive. Have no fear and no greed. Keep looking at what to be doing next in a calm manner. Don’t focus on the past or beat yourself up what you did or didn’t do or what you should have done. Just keep playing the next shot, which in this business your next shot could be just sitting on the sideline.

If you have been uncomfortable shorting stocks, which most people are, try to learn this technique, it will be a useful tool in the coming years.

When I list several stocks from the same sector, like the housing industry for example, don’t short all of them unless you are well diversified and it represents a small percentage of your total stock account (in that same account).

Current positions are highlighted in yellow. Green colored lines are next probable positions to consider. Red, take action or watch closely.
IMPORTANT: The notes in this stock list is how I have been writing notes to myself about stocks for 16 years. They are general guidelines as to how I am approaching a particular stock and conditions may change during the next trading day that may cause a change in opinion before the next evening report is written.
Thoughts: Best odds only, be decisive, aggressive, mentally flexible, stay in position size, don’t overtrade and wait a little longer to buy and wait a little longer to sell. You will find that will make you more money on your trades. Trade what you see, not what you hope for. Intermediate and swing trades are really important to have trailing stop losses set.
Don’t trade unless the setup is there for you, then use the charts to tell you when the odds are heavily in your favor. Don’t force anything to work for you, let the setups develop and then take advantage of that. Be patient. Stay in position sizes without letting any intraday trade represent no more than 10-15% of your total account value. As you build your account, your position size percentage should get smaller and smaller to lower your risk.

Have a great day and I’ll talk to you this tomorrow.

Here is another recently known personality who found solace in the arms of Press TV: "Former US diplomat Charles W. Freeman says he doubts whether the current Israeli policies can guarantee the regime's survival in the Middle East. "I don't see how Israel can continue to survive in the long term as a state in the Middle East if it is not prepared to deal with respect and consideration with its Arab neighbors specially the Palestinians," Freeman, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, said in an exclusive interview with Press TV. In mid March, Freeman turned down Director of National Intelligence (NIC) Dennis C. Blair's offer to be the chairman of the body. His abrupt withdrawal came after Freeman, who described "Israeli violence against Palestinians" as a key barrier to Mideast peace, drew fire from the Israeli lobby. "The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth," he wrote in a statement after his withdrawal." http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=90342&sectionid=351020202

I am part Russian and will continue to expose the Jews behind the New World Order.  The same tactics and death camps are here in america just waiting to be used.  we know from the apocalypse they will "behead" Christians that is why there were 30,000 guillotines sent to these FEMA camps.  You may ask why beheading?  This is where the "organ harvesting" business comes into play.  It is not conspiracy folks get your head out of the sand.  The Jews are now saying their Messianic Era will start in about 5 years or so hence why I warn you that Antichrist Maitreya is about to arrive onto the scene.

WARNING: Sensitive Material
Below is a excerpt from the book, ‘under the sign of the scorpion’ which describes some of the methods of torture and mass murder the Jewish Communists (Bolsheviks) sadistically inflicted onto the Russian Christian people. I warn you, you will be horrified. This is the real holocaust that happened in the 20th century, the Russian Holocaust, carried out by blood-thirsty and demonic bolshevik jews. I highlighted the parts I found to be most gut-wrenching in red.
Here it must be pointed out that the Cheka was under the control of Jews, according to documents now available. Much of this was known already in 1925. The researcher Larseh wrote in his book “The Blood-Lust of Bolshevism” (Wurttemberg, p. 45) that 50 per cent of the Cheka consisted of Jews with Jewish names, 25 per cent were Jews who had taken Russian names. All the chiefs were Jews. Lenin was well informed about all those serious crimes. All of the documents were placed on his desk. Lenin answered: “Put more force into the terror… shoot every tenth person, place all the suspects in concentration camps!”
Image result for under the sign of the scorpion
Lenin incarcerated people without any sentence, despite the establishment of revolutionary tribunals, as was the case in France under the Jacobins. Lenin actually claimed that the concentration camps were schools of labour. (Mikhail Heller and Alexander Nekrich, doctors of history, “Utopia in Power”, London, 1986, p. 67.) Lenin also claimed that the factory was the workers’ only school. They did not need any other education. He emphasised that anyone who could only do simple arithmetic could run a factory. Just like the terror of the Jacobins in France, the Jewish Bolshevik functionaries used barges to drown people in. Bela Kun (actually Aaron Kohn) and Roza Zemlyachka (actually Rozalia Zalkind) drowned Russian 110 officers in this way in the Crimea in the autumn of 1920. (Igor Bunich, “The Party’s Gold”, St. Petersburg, 1992, p. 73.)
The unusually cruel Jewish Chekist Mikhail Kedrov (actually Zederbaum) drowned 1092 Russian officers in the White Sea in the spring of 1920. Lenin and his accomplices did not arrest just anyone. They executed those most active in society, the independent thinkers. Lenin gave orders to kill as many students as possible in several towns. The Chekists arrested every youth wearing a school cap. They were liquidated because Lenin believed the coming Russian intellectuals would be a threat to the Soviet regime. (Vladimir Soloukhin, “In the Light of Day”, Moscow 1992, p. 40.) The role of the Russian intellectuals in society was taken over by the Jews. Many students (for example in Yaroslavl) learned quickly and hid their school caps. Afterwards, the Chekists stopped all suspect youths and searched their hair for the stripe of the school cap. If the stripe was found, the youth was killed on the spot.
The author Vladimir Soloukhin revealed that the Chekists were especially interested in handsome boys and pretty girls. These were the first to be killed. It was believed that there would be more intellectuals among attractive people. Attractive youths were therefore killed as a danger to society. No crime as terrible as this has hitherto been described in the history of the world. The terror was co-ordinated by the Chekist functionary Joseph Unschlicht. How did they go about the murders? The Jewish Chekists flavoured murder with various torture methods. In his documentary “The Russia We Lost”, the director Stanislav Govorukhin told how the priesthood in Kherson were crucified. The archbishop Andronnikov in Perm was tortured: his eyes were poked out, his ears and nose were cut off.

In Kharkov the priest Dmitri was undressed. When he tried to make the sign of the cross, a Chekist cut off his right hand. Several sources tell how the Chekists in Kharkov placed the victims in a row and nailed their hands to a table, cut around their wrists with a knife, poured boiling water over the hands and pulled the skin off. This was called “pulling off the glove”. In other places, the victim’s head was placed on an anvil and slowly crushed with a steam hammer. Those due to undergo the same punishment the next day were forced to watch.
The eyes of church dignitaries were poked out, their tongues were cut off and they were buried alive. There were Chekists who used to cut open 111 the stomachs of their victims, following which they pulled out a length of the small intestine and nailed it to a telegraph pole and, with a whip, forced the unlucky victim to run circles around the pole until the whole intestine had been unravelled and the victim died. The bishop of Voronezh was boiled alive in a big pot, after which the monks, with revolvers aimed at their heads, were forced to drink this soup.
Other Chekists crushed the heads of their victims with special headscrews, or drilled them through with dental tools. The upper part of the skull was sawn off and the nearest in line was forced to eat the brain, following which the procedure would be repeated to the end of the line. The Chekists often arrested whole families and tortured the children before the eyes of their parents, and the wives before their husbands. Mikhail Voslensky, a former Soviet functionary, described some of the cruel methods used by the Chekists in his book “Nomenklatura” / “Nomenclature” (Stockholm, 1982, p. 321):Related image
“In Kharkov, people were scalped. In Voronezh, the torture victims were placed in barrels into which nails were hammered so that they stuck out on the inside, upon which the barrels were set rolling. A pentacle (usually a five-pointed star formerly used in magic) was burned into the foreheads of the victims. In Tsaritsyn and Kamyshin, the hands of victims were amputated with a saw. In Poltava and Kremenchug, the victims were impaled. In Odessa, they were roasted alive in ovens or ripped to pieces. In Kiev, the victims were placed in coffins with a decomposing body and buried alive, only to be dug up again after half an hour.” Lenin was dissatisfied with these reports and demanded: “Put more force into the terror!”
All of this happened in the provinces. The reader can try to imagine how people were executed in Moscow. The Russian-Jewish newspaper Yevreyskaya Tribuna stated on the 24th of August 1922 that Lenin had asked the rabbis if they were satisfied with the particularly cruel executions. The Ideological Background of the Terror Compare the crimes mentioned in the previous chapter with the Old Testament account of King David’s massacre of the entire civilian population of an enemy (“thus did he unto all the cities of the children of 112 Ammon”). He “cut them with saws and with harrows of iron” and “made them pass through the brickkiln”. After the Second World War, this text was changed in most European Bibles. Now, many Bibles state that the people were put to work with the tools mentioned and were occupied with brick-making – something the inhabitants had been doing continually for several thousand years already. (This is found in II Samuel, 12:31, and in I Chronicles 20:3.)
The Jewish extremists’ serious crimes in Russia were committed in the true spirit of the Old Testament (King James’ Bible): * The god of the Israelites demands the mass-murder of Gentiles (i.e. goyim = non-Jews), including women and children. (Deuteronomy, 20:16.) * Yahweh wishes to spread terror among the Gentiles (Deuteronomy, 2:25). * Yahweh demands the destruction of other religions (Deuteronomy, 7:5). * The Jews may divide the prey of a great spoil (Isaiah, 33:23). * The Jews may make Gentiles their slaves (Isaiah, 14:2). * Those refusing to serve the Jews shall perish and be utterly wasted (Isaiah, 60:12). * Gentiles shall be forced to eat

their own flesh (Isaiah, 49:26).


Returning to the Bolshevik terror: in order to control the people’s hatred of their Jewish torturers and executioners, people suspected of having an anti-Semitic attitude were also executed. Those in possession of the book “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” were executed on the spot. At the end of March 1919, Lenin was forced to explain: “The Jews are not the enemies of the working classes… they are our friends in the struggle for Socialism.” But the people hated precisely this Socialism and those who practised terror in its name. Vladimir Ulyanov’s passion was to kill as many people as possible without thinking of the consequences. Of course, he never wondered whether it was really possible to build a state on violence and evil.
Lenin showed the same kind of thoughtlessness by the Yenisei, where he had loaded his boat with so many dead rabbits with crushed heads that it sank under the weight. In August 1991 the state-ship Lenin had launched, sank. What else was to be expected? In the beginning of the 1920s there were already 70 000 prisoners in 300 concentration camps, according to “The Russian Revolution” by 113 Richard Pipes at Harvard University, though in reality there were probably many more. It was in this manner that Lenin built his GULAG archipelago.

          9/11 Simplified...   
9/11 Simplified...
James Perloff

Yes, Virginia, there really were hijackers on the 9/11 planes—but not the ones we were told

This post is not intended to be taken dogmatically; I do not insist that its conclusions are correct; they are just presented for consideration.
In this post, though they have already been much discussed and debated within alternative media, I’ll address three major components of the 9/11 controversy: (1) what brought down the Twin Towers; (2) what initially struck the Towers; and (3) what happened to the original planes and passengers.
However, there is a valid complaint often voiced in the Truth Movement, which runs like this: “I really don’t care how 9/11 was done and I’m tired of all the infighting about this. What really matters is, we know the government’s story is bogus, so we need to focus on identifying the criminals and bringing them to justice.”



I consider this a very legitimate grievance. But I don’t think we can separate “who” from “how.” When a prosecutor presents his case in a courtroom, he doesn’t name a crime’s perpetrator without describing how the crime was carried out. Nor does he present the jury with the crime’s details and methodology without identifying the suspect(s).
So let’s tackle both how and who, and we’ll start with “who,” because doing so clarifies a lot of “how.”

The Who

What’s wrong with the following math equations?
3 + 3 = 68
98 – 7 = 2
58 X 7 = 35
What’s wrong, of course, are the 8s. Take away the 8s and each equation reads correctly.
I believe that, when it comes to resolving the mystery of how 9/11 was executed, the Truth Movement suffers from a major “8” (in addition to any individual doses of cognitive dissonance that have been deliberately sprinkled in). I believe that “8” is:
9/11 was an inside job.
I believe a far more correct rendering is:
9/11 was an outside job, done by Israeli operatives, but with consent and cooperation at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
To understand this, it may be helpful to compare Israel’s vicious 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. It is well understood that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara fully cooperated, by twice recalling U.S. fighters that the Sixth Fleet had sent to rescue the Liberty, and later by ordering a cover-up. However, at the physical operational level, the attack was carried out by Israelis, not by Americans in an “inside job.”
OK, but what’s the evidence that Israel was behind 9/11? By far the best summary I’ve seen is the WikiSpooks post 9-11/Israel Did It. (Incidentally, as many of my regular readers know, I’m half-Jewish on my father’s side, so knee-jerk charges against me of “anti-Semitism” can be stuffed in the appropriate place.)
A sampling of highlights:
• The five notorious “dancing Israelis” who filmed the Twin Towers’ destruction, after which they celebrated, high-fiving each other and even photographing themselves flicking a lighter against the backdrop of the smoking ruins. They were arrested after driving off in a van whose license number was reported by a neighbor. Later it was revealed that at least two of them were agents of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.
• Michael Chertoff was put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of 9/11, despite his mother having been a Mossad agent, and Chertoff himself reportedly holding dual citizenship in Israel. Chertoff released hundreds of arrested Israelis back to Israel, including the notorious “dancing Israelis.”
• Quoting Wikispooks: “The company that ran airport security at all three airports where the alleged hijackings originated was Huntsleigh USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of ICTS International and owned by Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon —both Israeli Jews.”
• ”Lucky Larry” Silverstein, who became the new owner of the World Trade Center less than two months before the attacks, and earned an insurance payout of nearly $5 billion on his $124 million investment (after missing the disaster due to a fortuitous doctor’s appointment on the morning of 9/11) was such good friends with Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in November 2001: “Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call.”1
• Supported by funds from Israel’s government, Zim Israel Navigational was the world’s ninth largest shipping firm. It had its American headquarters in the World Trade Center—until about two weeks before 9/11. Zim then moved its offices and employees to a new building, claiming rent was cheaper there.
• The 9/11 Commission’s executive director was Philip Zelikow, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen. Why should anyone with sworn loyalty to a foreign nation be entrusted with such a position?
• On 9/11, the chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board was Richard Perle, whom the National Security Agency had caught spying on the U.S. for Israel in 1970.
• On 9/11, employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received messages two hours before the attack, warning them not to be in the World Trade Center.
• Ptech, a software firm linked to Israeli intelligence, had provided vital software being used by the FAA, FBI, and U.S. armed forces on 9/11.
• On 9/11, seated in row 9 of Flight 11 (directly behind “Mohammed Atta”) was Danny Lewin, a former captain in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), and who served in the Sayeret Matkal, which specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, and assassination. Lewin could bench-press 315 pounds and “was trained to kill terrorists with a pen or a credit card, or just his bare hands.”2 In 2000, he had himself photographed in front of panels resembling the Twin Towers, wearing a Swatch Watch whose model name was “Hijacker.” The hour, minute and second hands were all on the “11” and the date was set to the 11th, even though the picture was taken on the 10th.




The odds against all four time indicators being on “11” are more than 20,000 to 1. Times the odds of the watch model being named “Hijacker”: unfathomable.
That’s just a small sampling of the evidence that Israel did 9/11. When police detectives try to solve a murder, among the first questions asked is: Who benefitted from the crime? In 9/11’s case, Middle Eastern Muslims did not benefit—the U.S. has been making war on them for 16 years. America did not benefit—we’re suffering the casualties and trillions in costs from the wars, as well as degradation of our liberties in the name of security. The only beneficiary was Israel—her enemies have been neutralized one by one, courtesy America, in fulfillment of the Greater Israel plan, with Iran reputedly next on the hit list.
That’s the main who; let’s talk about the how.

(1) How were the Twin Towers destroyed?

Within alternative media are three major schools of thought about this. One is nano-thermite, largely advocated by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Another is Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs), whose foremost advocate is Dr. Judy Wood. The third is nuclear devices, which I and a few others support. Let me be clear: I have friends in all three camps, and differing opinions on this matter don’t impede our friendships.
I’ve laid out why I believe the Twin Towers’ collapse was a nuclear event in an extensive blog post. To minimize redundancy, I’ll shrink this to a “top ten” list:

TOP TEN REASONS THE WTC COLLAPSE WAS A NUCLEAR EVENT

1. Thyroid cancer occurs at above-average frequency in 9/11 first responders more than any other type of cancer (see full post for citations). This is a signature of nuclear bombs; they emit iodine-131, which collects in the thyroid, often causing cancer. (This is why some people keep potassium iodide tablets on hand—to protect their thyroid glands in case of a nuclear attack.)
2. World Trade Center dust samples examined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) found Uranium, Strontium, Barium, Thorium, and other products of nuclear fission, in high concentrations that only an atomic blast could explain. Although the Survey avoided calling attention to the significance, William Tahil vetted it in his pioneering 2006 book Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre. (The phrase “ground zero,” incidentally, had only been applied to nuclear detonation sites prior to 9/11.)
3. There was molten steel underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, whose fires kept burning for over three months. Extraordinary heat is yet another signature of a nuclear bomb.
(Note: I’m aware that molten steel was seen at a corner of the South Tower before its collapse; I don’t doubt that pre-planted explosives were in the Towers, probably including the incendiary thermite, but I don’t believe these explosives were what destroyed the WTC. To clarify, each Tower had six basement levels, and the thesis of my full post—which I had excellent assistance with—is that each Tower was destroyed by a suitcase nuke positioned at the lowest point in either building: the services pits beneath elevator 50. This was the only elevator that ran the full length of either Tower, and the only elevator whose service pits were carved into the bedrock beneath the World Trade Center. This location would make the ideal “launching pad” for a nuke, as the bedrock would contain the sideways and downward force of a nuclear explosion, which would follow the path of least resistance up through the shaft. See the full post for diagrams.)
4. The Towers did not simply “fall,” they exploded, throwing chunks of steel weighing multiple tons hundreds of feet. Check, for example, this piece that embedded itself in the American Express Building across the street:

No exotic weapons are needed to explain this. A nuclear bomb is the most powerful explosive known.
5. The Towers’ inner contents were vaporized: no furniture, filing cabinets (except one), computers, or toilets survived. All turned into dust. Even the buildings’ concrete became dust, instead of falling as chunks of debris. The vaporization, of course, included the people inside (whole bodies that were found belonged to people who jumped before the Towers disintegrated). Not only is a nuclear bomb the most powerful explosive known, its blast—unlike conventional explosives—endures for several seconds, enabling it to inflict considerably more damage.
6. At the times of the two Tower “collapses,” seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded enormous off-the-chart spikes consistent with huge explosions.


This shot of the South Tower exploding caught a huge singular upward burst of energy.
7. A nuclear blast explains the damage to the rest of the World Trade Center. Buildings 5 and 7 suffered enormous fires, and building 6 was cratered out. These phenomena could not have begun before the Towers’ destruction; otherwise, videos of the burning Towers would have shown additional smoke plumes, and cameras would have panned to the blazes.
Nuclear blasts originating at the lowest levels of the Twin Towers may provide the answer. Underground the World Trade Center was interconnected by pipes, not only for sewage, but a 3-foot-wide storm water drainage system.
Any building’s place at greatest risk for flooding is its lowest point. For the Twin Towers, this would have been Elevator 50’s service pits. From here flood water would be pumped through pipes to the 36-inch storm drain. Thus atomic blasts here would not only follow the path of least resistance through Elevator 50’s shaft, but through the 36-inch storm water drain, traveling through the underground pipes and shooting up through buildings 5, 6 and 7, igniting them. Falling debris could not have caused the raging internal fires seen in the smaller buildings; edifices outside the World Trade Center (American Express Building, Winter Garden Atrium) were heavily impacted by debris, but they did not catch fire. THEY WERE NOT CONNECTED TO THE WTC’S UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM.
Please see my full post for elaboration and documentation of the above point.
8. On 9/11, New Yorkers fled two terrifying dust clouds that engulfed the area surrounding the WTC. Anyone who watches videos of nuclear bombs detonating will see that they create sprawling ground-level clouds. Although building demolitions also routinely make dust clouds, the 9/11 ones seemed to have had a life of their own.

          Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)   
Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)
SOURCE
(Note: The following was one of the last interviews by Malachi Martin before his death in 1999.)

      Ever since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Power Elite have never given up on their feverish dream of a One World Government.

      Former Jesuit Malachi Martin's novel, Windswept House (Doubleday/ Main Street Books), offers a lurid behind the scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Roman Catholic Church as a foundation for a politico-religious New World Order.

      The plot of the novel involves a group of Church officials who scheme with a group of like-minded corporate executives to manipulate the Church into a ready-made infrastructure for a One World Religion -- a universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners.

      The new ecumenicalism is clothed in Globalist garb. The agenda includes promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to the complete secularization of religion. 


      The most outrageous and controversial premise of the novel -- described in great detail in the prologue -- is that a ceremony was performed in the Vatican in 1963 -- an occult ritual which enthroned the fallen archangel Lucifer as the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

      Does Dr. Martin believe that this enthronement actually took place in his novel, which could liberally be described as a roman a clef?

      "Yes, it did," he says emphatically. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind. But now the place, time, hour etc., are all obfuscated to protect the guilty and save the innocent."

      Was it common knowledge in the Vatican at the time? "Not common knowledge," explains Martin. "But I found out about it by being a member of the Vatican circles that learned these things. It's like everything else. I'm sure there are people floating around Washington, and they know an awful lot about what's going on. Someone says, 'how do you know that'? Well, it's just... we know it."

      The story ofWindswept House continues in present day Europe as an international group of conspirators spanning Church and State plots a one world government on behalf of Lucifer. So are readers to infer that no matter what happens, the Pope and the Church hierarchy are bound to serve the fallen angel?

      "No," explains Dr. Martin. "What it means is that for the moment, Lucifer the biggest archangel, the leader of the revolt against God, has a big in with certain Vatican officials. Enthronement doesn't mean that he rules. It means that they did their best to put him there. The ideal would be to have their man as Pope. In that case then Satan would be enthroned."

      The book goes on to describe how two brothers, one a priest and the other an investment banker, grapple with these awesome consequences as pawns in the game. Meanwhile the cabal of Globalist-oriented Vatican officials and European-based internationalists try to corner the Pope into voluntary resignation so that they can get their man in the Chair of Peter.

      This theme coincidentally is also the basis, albeit in non-fiction form, of Martin's book The Keys of This Blood: Pope John Paul II Versus Russia and the West for Control of the New World Order.

      The upshot? A One World Government is a fait accompli, he infers. What Dr. Martin calls the "millennium endgame" is a competition for a new global hegemony by the key Globalist players. What's interesting is that the novel appears to be a seamless transition from his previous non-fiction work. The reader then is put in the position of concluding that the New World Order is a done deal, that a One World Government is here and now and, as the expression goes, it's all over but the crying.

      But you wouldn't expect Globalist agit-prop from a former Jesuit. Or would you?



The Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican

 

And Who Is Malachi Martin?

      Author of 15 books on religious and geo-political topics, Malachi Martin is highly regarded and respected as a world renowned scholar.

      Trained in theology at Louvain, he received his doctorates in Semitic Languages, Archaeology and Oriental History. He subsequently studied at Oxford and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. From 1958 to 1964, he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the Jesuit cardinal Augustin Bea and Pope John XXIII, as well as a professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute.

      Malachi Martin is the author of many best-selling books including Vatican, Hostage to the Devil, The Jesuits, The Final Conclave, and The Keys of This Blood. Also he was a Roman Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus until 1964 when he left the Jesuits. Why?

      "It was a grave decision," he says. "I could see the way the Church was going, the way churchmen were going in their decisions and all the anchors I had for morality and zeal were being undone. Then when the Vatican Council started in 1962, I could see the way the flow of opinion was going in the Vatican by a group of cardinals from Belgium, Germany and France. They were maneuvering the Church into totally new ecclesiology. I couldn't accept this."

      As an advisor to three Popes, Dr. Martin has had his fair share of romanita, that uniquely Roman methodology of connivance and power politicking. "I started off as an advisor on Judaism," he continues. "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well. They wanted someone to explain it, since they were studying the whole question of Jewish-Christian relations. So I was drafted into helping with that."

      And the outcome? "They produced a document in which they sort of absolved the Jewish people of the death of Christ."

      Based on his research? "No, not on my research," argues Martin. "I was only a cog in the wheel. I didn't agree with the final document either. It went too far. And then there were conclusions about the need for Catholics to study Judaism and get to know them better."

So this was the ecumenicalization of the Church that was going on?

      "That's it in one word," concurs Martin. "And I couldn't agree with the total effect of all that because I thought they went too far."

      Dr. Martin was also involved with Vatican intelligence. What did he do? "Just assessing things in Israel, whatever anti-Christianity there was amongst the Israelis. There was and still is. And what was the position of the Arabs. I used to live in Jordan and Lebanon and Egypt. I knew those places very well and could assess the position of the Church and the various Christian communities."

      The many-talented Dr. Martin is also known as a practicing exorcist and has even written a book about the subject called Hostage to the Devil.

      He says he came up against evil as a force in the world in an uncontrovertible undeniable way in his first exorcism.

      "I was in Cairo and it was evil," Dr. Martin recalls.

      "You know you only have to enter its presence, or for it to enter your presence to know that you are in the presence of something which is summarily evil."

      "It's invisible. You can't see it. But you know it wants you dead. Dead. Dead. And in a horrible way," he repeats in a hypnotic voice. "It's touching your very bones by its presence."

      So how does he explain the phenomenon of demonic possession? "Free will", says Dr. Martin. "For the first time in the work we have been doing for thirty-one years in this corner of the globe, during the last ten years or so, we have found young men and women thirty-somethings or twenty-somethings coming forward and saying, 'Listen I made a pact with the devil. I wanted this woman. I wanted this man. I wanted this job. I wanted this money. I wanted this, this, this, and I made a pact and he gave it to me and now I can't get free of him. He dominates my will. Please liberate me. And then people get to it by means of things like a ouija board or by spiritual seances or channeling."

      Malachi Martin is also known as a serious scholar of apocryphal writings, having authored a book called The Scribal Character of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      (As an impressive mark of his erudition, Malachi Martin even knew about the alternative Abraham and Isaac story in one of the so-called Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Jubilees. In this unsanctioned version of Genesis, Abraham is commanded to kill his son, but not by God. Instead it is Mastema, a fallen angel known as "the accusing angel" as well as the Tempter and Executioner, who tells the Hebrew patriarch to do the dirty deed. To his credit, of course, Abraham doesn't slaughter his firstborn. When asked why the Genesis version omits details of the fallen angel Mastema as the instigator of Abraham's test, however, even Malachi Martin admits ignorance.)

The Globalist Imperative

      Like the prissy intellectuals of the 1930s enamored by National Socialism (as well as Fabian Socialism), the current fin de siecle version of internationalists are likewise paving their own road to a Globalist hell with good intentions.

      Using the Hegelian model of history, first there was Capitalism (thesis), then Communism (antithesis), and now there's the New World Order (synthesis), risen from the ashes of the Cold War and the formerly 'competing' ideologies.

      International socialism or corporate fascism (aka Globalism) is, in fact, the trendy philosophy for the end of the millennium. In his book Megatrends 2000, Olympian futurist John Naisbitt calls it "free market socialism," a hybrid economic system that combines welfare state policies with multinational corporate business on a global level.

      Globalism, however, as a secular religion, has a dogma all its own. Its primary belief system is based on the notion that the usefulness of the nation-state is over. In other words, national sovereignty is a thing of the past and a One World Government is inevitable. But... this effort, at least for now, must be couched in cryptic language for the unwashed masses. Otherwise they'd get too upset.

      Globalist spokesman Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Columbia University professor, President Carter's former National Security advisor, and founder of the Trilateral Commission spoke at the Gorbachev Foundation's State of the World Forum in 1995, "We cannot leap into world government in one quick step," he said. "(It) requires a process of gradually expanding the range of democratic cooperation." In plain language, that means people must be further indoctrinated.

      Eurocrat Jean-Marie Guehenno hints at this global hegemony or one world totalitarianism calling it an "empire without an emperor." Guehenno wrote The End of the Nation-State (1995) which was called La fin de la democratie (The End of Democracy) in the original French version. Since nation states are obsolete, he claims, "'wise men' capable of thinking through the finite world that has become our common lot" must be entrusted to guide us into what he calls an 'Imperial Age'." Presumably Guehenno counts himself as one of the ranks of "The Wise Men."

      Most striking though is a chapter in Guehenno's book called "Religions without God", which evokes the image of the humanist shaking his fist at an empty sky. The ultimate reduction of this conundrum for the internationalists is to hint at a "global politburo" to run the world as posited by Paul Mazur in Unfinished Business (1979).

      According to Dr. Martin's nomenclature, Guehenno is one of the Transnationalists -- bureaucrats who believe that Globalism is based on "the development of new and ever wider interrelationships between the governments of the world".

      On the other hand, the Internationalists are "individuals who operate from a power base of finance, industry and technology". Together these groups are the Globalists, the social engineers conniving for the convergence of East and West in the so-called New World Order.


Luciferian Geo-Politics

      For a Churchman, Malachi Martin shows a remarkable familiarity and understanding of Luciferianism, a belief system which hold human wisdom, secular humanism if you will, as its paragon and the fallen archangel Lucifer as the Prince who will rule the world.

      Readers ofWindswept Houseare given the impression that the old traditional Catholic Church is good because the protagonists, Christian Gladstone and his mother are defending it, while we know that the Church has been dedicated to Lucifer. Faced with these two alternatives, the conclusion is that the Roman Catholic Church run by Lucifer is good -- a classic (and incredibly sophisticated) double bind, which is constantly reinforced in the reader's mind throughout the 646 pages of the novel.

      "Well, the Church itself has not been given to Lucifer," argues Dr. Martin. "He was enthroned in the Vatican by Vatican officials. That doesn't mean he possesses the Church yet. The Church anyway is an ambiguous term because it either means the actual physical bloc of churches, convents, libraries, academies, parish houses and cathedrals, the physical plant. Or it means the group of faithful in the state of grace whether they are alive in Purgatory or in Heaven. That is the body of Christ."

      "There has always been, since the fourth century, this organization set up by the Emperor Constantine. But that is not essential for the Church. The Church can exist without it. So that mystical body of Christ has not fallen into Lucifer's hands. The organization to some degree has. That's the difficulty."

      What about the book putting his readers in a double bind? You're presented with two choices. Either A. The Luciferian-controlled Roman Catholic Church. Or B. The Luciferian-controlled New World Order. So where does Malachi Martin find himself?

      "The New World Order is definitely won by Luciferian believers," says Dr. Martin. "There's no doubt about that."

      And then he starts to rationalize their modus operandi.

      "But these are men who came to be and are in their actions at least, humanitarian and philanthropic. They want to wipe out hunger and disease. They want to limit the population of the world. They believe the world is headed for mass starvation. They also want to enter into education. They would like to have an alliance with the Roman Catholic Church and with another pope. This one -- they know would stand in their way in regards to population control because he is deadstart against abortion, contraceptives, genetic engineering."

      And what about "The Process" he refers to in his book?

      Dr. Martin replies that it's the "Luciferian Process" of secularizing every religious mind so that the common mind today would be one which regarded the earth as a planned paradise to be built up. There is no God above the skies, no heaven, and there is no hell beneath the earth. It's complete secularization."

      (John Lennon's classic rock anthem "Imagine" comes to mind. "Imagine there's no country," he sang. "It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion too.")

      But do the Luciferians have a timetable?

      "We are now according to the official doctrine of the Luciferians in what they call "the Availing Time". They have a tradition that in these years they can avail of the time to install the Prince, who is Lucifer, as the greatest power on earth in charge of human civilization and adored by men."

      And to what end?

      "To exalt the power of Lucifer. That is the end in itself. It's the Luciferian purpose. If they don't do it in these years, then it is put off sine die, without resolution. They are very keen on getting it done."

      And what are the next steps in this "Process"?

      "The purpose is to secularize education completely," continues Dr. Martin. "And to eliminate from considerations of life and death -- medicine, sociality, finance, birth, development etc., to free that of any religious presumption whatever. To free it from the superstition of religion so that man is dealt with scientifically and humanly. And that is 'the Process'. 'The Process' is to make the human mind accept that... 'The Process' is whereby all education, primary secondary and higher, college university and all public activity is completely rid of all religious presumptions."

      "There is a layer of satanism, of satanist ritual which prepares people for perfect Luciferian adoption. They have covens and sacrifices and rites. The Luciferians have no rites, you know."

      So dabbling with satanism in these rituals leads to a different form of "commitment" which is Luciferianism?

      "It is a preparation for Luciferianism and there are reversals sometimes," claims Dr. Martin. "You will find a crowd of Luciferians having a satanic ritual as a reminder of things. But they have all passed through in a sense and that involves three things: the infliction of pain without flinching, the infliction of death without flinching, and the use of fire."


Windswept House — Message and Subtext

      In Windswept House, Christians and Luciferians clash over the remains of the Roman Catholic Church. It's a controversial and provocative story, a political thriller with metaphysical implications. It delves into the depths of treachery, intrigue and Machiavellian politics at the highest levels of the Church. As a fact-based novel with frequent lengthy asides on real historical geopolitical events like the fall of the Soviet Empire and the Helsinki Accords,Windswept House is a vehicle for one simple message -- the New World Order is here and now.

      While a group of cardinals scheme to force the Pope to resign his office so they'll be able to install a man who will do the Luciferians' bidding, a priest, Christian Gladstone is called to Rome. Cardinal Maestroianni, a power player and one of the leaders of the cabal, enlists the priest to poll bishops regarding closer ties with the European Economic Community. In fact, however, the Cardinal is assessing the timing for a conclave in which the Slavic Pope would be forced to resign because he has become a stumbling block in the Luciferians' plans.

      From the business side, Paul Gladstone, Christian's brother and an expert in international relations working at a Globalist law firm, is also unknowingly recruited to bring the Luciferian plan to fruition. When the brothers find out they are both being unwittingly used in the schemes of the Luciferians, they join forces. Christian then must reach the Pope to tell him that he is being manipulated to abdicate the Chair of Peter.

      Will the Pope resign? And will he exorcise the Church in time?

      The subtext? It doesn't really make a hell of a lot of a difference. 

Father Malachi Martin: End of Christian Civilization



The Future of the Church Militant

      In his novelWindswept House Malachi Martin expostulates his readers regarding the reasons why the "Slavic Pope" (Pope John Paul II) is so ineffectual. But what is the Pope's agenda as he sees it?

      "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons, has sought after one thing and one thing only," says Dr. Martin. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. When he went to churches all over the world, member churches of the Catholic Church in all the countries, he was bolstering the reputation of the papacy and he was speaking Catholic dogma, Catholic belief, Catholic morals. But in reality he was reaching out to everybody. He wanted to make friends with everybody."

      And what about the widespread homosexuality, pedophilia and satanic rituals in the Church, common knowledge he avers known to all Vatican insiders? Since as he wrote Christ is no longer honored in the tabernacle, what does he think will happen?

      "Once the tabernacle is emptied of Christ's real presence, then the Church ceases to be holy and therefore it's going to be entered by the opposite power, Lucifer," says Martin. "And this is taking place now. Not widespread, but it is taking place. There's no doubt about that."

      So will the Church fall on its own? "It's disintegrating slowly," says Martin. "As an organization, it's being marginalized sociopolitically and culturally. And religiously, it's weakening and decaying, obsolescing..."

      "If you look at any country today there are three identifiable components of that State. One, the government. Two, there is industry. Third, there are what we call NGOs, the non-governmental organizations. That's everything from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to the Catholic Church. And they're just simply lumped together, voluntary associations with as much power as they can grasp but of no special importance. Now fifty or seventy years ago, when an ethical or moral question arose, people and governments looked to the churches. Now they don't any longer."

      And yet another sensitive question. Something doesn't add up. Malachi Martin's a priest. He's supposed to fight evil. Yet his bookWindswept Houseis clear evidence that he's thrown in the towel.

      "Well I don't see evidence of having thrown in the towel," protests Dr. Martin. "Because there's a lot I'm being made to pay for, in the sense that the writer obviously likes and reveres this Pope even though he disagrees with him. The writer also believes in the blessed sacrament. He believes in the Pope's infallibility. He believes in salvation. He believes in hell. He believes in the evil of the devil."

      So why doesn'tWindswept Houseend with Christ victorious in the book?

      Does Dr. Martin believe that the Luciferian forces have won already?

      "No. No. No," insists Dr. Martin. "This is an interim book. It ends in a big doubt -- everybody waiting." This must be what they call the European ending -- as opposed to the American ending where all the loose ends are tied up.

      Then the story shifts into "The Devil, Er, I Mean the Editor Made Me Do It". "The publisher said, 'listen the story isn't finished yet,'" says Dr. Martin. "I had a lovely glorious ending. I had a vision. I had a marvellous thing over the Alps. He cut it out."

      This is an actual editorial decision? "Yes," says Dr. Martin.

      But with all due respect, it almost sounds like Luciferian tampering. Not that anyone wants a saccharine ending. So are readers to conclude that the Luciferians won because of the passivity of the Pope in defending the Church?

      "Well, they haven't won yet," says Dr. Martin on a slightly upbeat note. "We're waiting for this man to do something. He's the Vicar of Christ. I know I'm defending him but..."

      "Readers who call me or write me say, what do we do now? I say, read my next book," he continues.

      With Martin's death on July 28, 1999, his suggestion seems to be a moot point.

      "So perhaps editorially," he concludes, "it was the right decision, but religiously it was the wrong decision. I don't know."

      It's been said that "by their fruits, ye shall know them." Malachi Martin's assent to the so-called "process" is the tangible "fruit" of Windswept House.

      Is the novel a prophecy? Or is it just a warning?

      In any case, the New (Luciferian) World Order that Martin describes puts a religious spin to the whole "process" of history.

It's also clear -- the book is a Luciferian masterpiece.  


TradCatKnight in the media: THE SATANIC VATICAN DECEPTION 


          After Sy Hersh's Bombshell Investigation, Why Won't Media Tell the Real Story of Trump's Military Strike in Syria?   
Western media are continuing to do their part in the propaganda war on Syria.

If you wish to understand the degree to which the supposedly free western media are constructing a world of half-truths and deceptions to manipulate their audiences, keeping us uninformed and pliant, there could hardly be a better case study than their treatment of Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh.

All of these highly competitive, for-profit, scoop-seeking media outlets separately took identical decisions: first to reject Hersh’s latest investigative report, and then to studiously ignore it once it was published in Germany last Sunday. They have continued to maintain an absolute radio silence on his revelations, even as over the past few days they have given a great deal of attention to two stories on the very issue Hersh’s investigation addresses.

These two stories, given such prominence in the western media, are clearly intended to serve as “spoilers” to his revelations, even though none of these publications has actually informed their readers of his original investigation. We are firmly in looking-glass territory.

So what did Hersh’s investigation reveal? His sources in the U.S. intelligence establishment told him the official narrative that Syria’s Bashar Assad had dropped deadly sarin gas on the town of Khan Sheikhoun on April 4 was incorrect. Instead, they said, a Syrian plane dropped a bomb on a meeting of jihadi fighters that triggered secondary explosions in a storage depot, releasing a toxic cloud of chemicals that killed civilians nearby.

One might assume that an alternative narrative of the events would be of great interest to the media, given that Donald Trump approved a military strike on Syria based on the official narrative. Hersh’s version suggests that Trump acted against the intelligence advice he received from his own officials, in a highly dangerous move that not only grossly violated international law but might have dragged Assad’s main ally, Russia, into the fray. The Syrian arena has the potential to trigger a serious confrontation between the world’s two major nuclear powers.

But in fact, the western media were supremely uninterested in the story. Hersh, once considered the journalist’s journalist, went hawking his investigation around the U.S. and UK media to no avail. In the end, he could find a home for his revelations only in Germany, in the publication Welt am Sonntag.

There are a couple of possible, though unlikely, reasons all English-language publications ignored Hersh’s story. Maybe they had evidence his inside intelligence was wrong. If so, they have yet to provide it. A rebuttal would require acknowledging Hersh’s story, and none seems willing to do that.

Or maybe the media thought it was old news and would no longer interest their readers. It would be difficult to sustain such an interpretation, but at least it has an air of plausibility—except for everything that has happened since Hersh published last Sunday. His story has spawned two clear “spoiler” responses from those desperate to uphold the official narrative. Hersh’s revelations may have been entirely uninteresting to the western media, but strangely they have sent Washington into crisis mode.

Of course, no U.S. official has addressed Hersh’s investigation directly, which might have drawn attention to it and forced western media to reference it. Instead, Washington has sought to deflect attention from Hersh’s alternative narrative and shore up the official one through misdirection. That alone should raise the alarm that we are being manipulated, not informed.

The first spoiler, made in the immediate wake of Hersh’s story, was statements from the Pentagon and White House warning that the U.S. had evidence Assad was planning yet another chemical attack on his people and that Washington would respond harshly if he did so.

Here is how the Guardian reported the U.S. threats:

The U.S. said on Tuesday that it had observed preparations for a possible chemical weapons attack at a Syrian air base allegedly involved in a sarin attack in April following a warning from the White House that the Syrian regime would ‘pay a heavy price’ for further use of the weapons.

On Friday, the second spoiler emerged. Two unnamed diplomats “confirmed” that a report by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had found that some of the victims from Khan Sheikhoun showed signs of poisoning by sarin or sarin-like substances.

There are obvious reasons to be mighty suspicious of these stories. The findings of OPCW were already known and had been discussed for some time. There was absolutely nothing newsworthy about them.

There are also well-known problems with the findings. There was no “chain of custody”—neutral oversight—of the bodies that were presented to the organization in Turkey, as Scott Ritter, a former weapons inspector in Iraq, has noted. Any number of interested parties could have contaminated the bodies before they reached OPCW. For that reason, OPCW has not concluded that the Assad regime was responsible for the traces of sarin. In the world of real news, only such a finding—that Assad was responsible—should have made the OPCW report interesting again to the media.

Similarly, by going public with their threats against Assad, the Pentagon and White House did not increase the deterrence on Assad, making it less likely he would use gas in the future. That could have been achieved much more effectively with private warnings to the Russians, who have massive leverage over Assad. These new warnings were meant not for Assad but for western publics, to bolster the official narrative that Hersh’s investigation had thrown into doubt.

In fact, the U.S. threats increase, rather than reduce, the chances of a new chemical weapons attack. Other anti-Assad actors now have a strong incentive to use chemical weapons in false-flag operation to implicate Assad, knowing that the U.S. has committed itself to intervention. On any reading, the U.S. statements were reckless—or malicious—in the extreme and likely to bring about the exact opposite of what they were supposed to achieve.

But beyond this, there was something even more troubling about these two stories. That these official claims were published so unthinkingly in major outlets is bad enough. But what is unconscionable is the media’s continuing blackout of Hersh’s investigation when it speaks directly to the two latest news reports.

No serious journalist could write up either story, according to any accepted norms of journalistic practice, and not make reference to Hersh’s claims. They are absolutely relevant to these stories. In fact, more than that, the intelligence sources he cites are not only relevant but are the reason these two stories have been suddenly propelled to the top of the news agenda.

Any publication that has covered either the White House-Pentagon threats or the rehashing of the OPCW report and has not mentioned Hersh’s revelations is writing nothing less than propaganda in service of a western foreign policy agenda trying to bring about the illegal overthrow of the Syrian government. And so far that appears to include every single U.S. and UK mainstream newspaper and TV station.

          Comment on 7 Things Everyone Should Know About Low-Carb Diets by TeeDee   
I came to this site after visiting the Intensive Dietary Management site looking for answers as to why I've been waking up at 2:30-3:00am most mornings since adopting a WOE that is VLCHF and doing IF (23:1; 7xper week) to lose weight and avoid T2D. I felt that these 2 sites would give me some understanding as to what may be going on with my 'sudden' and long lasting lack of sleep. I wouldn't mind so much if I felt rested and rejuvenated after 4-4.5 hrs of sleep, but I don't. I need 6.5-7hrs most nights to feel well. I found a comment that gave me some good food for thought regarding sleep, but felt compelled to read through the other comments, as well. I'm so glad I did. I was hell bent on spending the rest of my life striving to eat as low carb as possible. In fact, some commenters on other sites almost had me convinced to try Zero Carb. I still feel that VLC and Zero Carb have their place for many and see no reason why they are not sound plans for different reasons; but in light of my sleep deprivation of late, I will be adding a modest amount of complex carbs in the form of some extra veg to my diet to see if that will work to increase the duration of sleep. But before leaving Chris's site, I wanted to thank certain commenters for opening my eyes to other possibilities in the area of carb consumption. My goal is to be as healthy and disease free as possible while maintaining a healthy weight. This is the same goal as it is for the majority of people who visit these sites. As most know, however, the opinions, blended with 'facts' and wonderful anecdotal evidence, are legion. It is mind boggling how diverse the experiences and beliefs are of those who refuse to simply toe the line and eat the SAD diet (as many special interests would have us do). I can't start reciting the names of those whose comments struck me as incredibly intelligent, balanced and reasonable, because I would surely leave someone out and that would be worse than not thanking each person individually. I think you know who you are and I just want to thank you for your thoughtful and reasoned responses. This site and any books on the subject could just as easily be yours and they have meant as much to me as the great resources that we've all been lucky enough to read. I'm very tired and hope I didn't ramble too long or sound too disoriented, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to give of your vast knowledge and insights.

          Re: David Petraeus Chased, Taunted By Protesters On First Day At CUNY (VIDEO)   

War criminal? I don't get it. While no war or warrior is perfect – and this warrior certainly made some very personal, painful mistakes – the way Petraeus carried himself with the troops, the country, and the intelligence he was given all seem to point to an honorable, realpolitik-based leader. Whither war criminal? Can we not Godwin's Law that charge?


          WWD Law Review: O’Neil v. O’Neill and Trump v. Aquazurra   
New York-based men’s wear brand Thaddeus O’Neil is the latest brand to face off against a larger, older one with a similar name, highlighting a consistent concern in the fashion industry. In political fashion, a New York federal court judge has ordered Ivanka Trump to testify under oath in the latest development in the closely watched copying lawsuit filed against her by Aquazzura. And in China, authorities have taken to lashing out against reports that it is the source of the majority of fake goods in the European Union and a threat to U.S. intellectual property. The Name Game A battle between New York-based men’s wear brand Thaddeus O’Neil and Southern California-based surfwear company O’Neill is shedding light on the ever-present legal issues surrounding brand names. According to O’Neill’s opposition to Thaddeus O’Neil’s pending trademark application for the Thaddeus O’Neil name, the men’s wear designer’s mark “is likely to cause confusion with [O’Neill’s own] registered marks.” The surf brand has also alleged that it “believes it will be damaged by registration of the [Thaddeus O’Neil] mark,” especially given the surf-inspired nature of his brand. The matter is an apt reminder that designers are not legally entitled to use their own names in a commercial […]

          CONFRONTACIÓN   
Panorama político nacional de los últimos siete días ¿A quién beneficia la confrontación? Si bien aún es temprano para que las encuestas se acerquen a los probables resultados que arrojarán las urnas de octubre (como muestra la experiencia, algunos estudios ni siquiera aciertan el mismo día de las elecciones), los sondeos animan a los protagonistas y permiten aproximaciones, así sean imperfectas. Un trabajo de Query Argentina/M&R Asociados concluido la semana última registra, en la provincia de Buenos Aires un empate técnico entre los candidatos de Unidad Ciudadana (Cristina de Kirchner, para el Senado; Fernanda Vallejos para la Cámara baja) y los de Cambiemos (Esteban Bullrich, Graciela Ocaña). En rigor, el empate técnico se define con leve superioridad para la boleta cristinista (34,8 % contra 34,3%). Para que no queden dudas sobre el significado de esos guarismos, el estudio informa que se aclaró a los encuestados que Bullrich y Ocaña son “los candidatos de Mauricio Macri y María Eugenia Vidal (datos que, sin embargo, no figurarán en las papeletas del comicio de octubre). Macri y María Eugenia: opiniones que se bifurcan El mismo estudio registra que en la provincia de Buenos Aires las opiniones negativas sobre el Presidente superan por ocho puntos a las positivas (en el Gran Buenos Aires esa diferencia se amplía casi al doble) y el juicio sobre su gestión de gobierno muestra un cuadro aún más duro: prevalecen las opiniones negativas por diferencias que ascienden a 15 por ciento en el conjunto del distrito y a 23 por ciento en el conurbano. Un aliciente para el oficialismo: María Eugenia Vidal tiene números más auspiciosos. Su imagen positiva supera a la negativa (por 12 puntos en la provincia y, aunque por menos, también en el Gran Buenos Aires). Este último dato es relevante: el nudo estratégico de la elección de octubre se encuentra en el conurbano bonaerense. Sin embargo, no alcanza para calmar la ansiedad de las fuerzas oficialistas ni para convencer a los observadores externos de que el gobierno tiene bien atados los hilos de la gobernabilidad. En la semana, el ministro de Hacienda Nicolás Dujovne enhebró en un mismo concepto un argumento electoral y una coartada: explicó la reticencia de los inversores extranjeros porque han reaparecido, dijo, “las sombras de las políticas económicas del populismo que tanto daño nos han hecho”: un eufemismo para referirse a la candidatura de Cristina Kirchner. ¿Optar entre la K y la M? Hace tiempo, en rigor, que gobierno ha decidido empujar al centro de la escena a la expresidente para justificar las dificultades económicas que no consigue superar y, al mismo tiempo, para presentar la boleta electoral de Cambiemos como panacea exclusiva para “apostar al futuro”. La clave del razonamiento reside en agigantar el peligro o amenaza K y reivindicar el monopolio del remedio. O, si se quiere, presentar al conjunto de las fuerzas políticas que navegan al margen de la pretendida polarización entre la K y la M, como manifestaciones disimuladas, solapadas, maliciosas del kirchnerismo. Un renovado ejemplo de esa intención se evidenció el miércoles en la Cámara de Diputados: después de varios meses de demoras, el plenario de la Cámara decidió sancionar en genera l la ley de responsabilidad penal empresaria, que establece para casos de corrupción la incumbencia de la firma involucrada, más allá de las personas físicas que pudieran haber actuado. El oficialismo, a través de mensajes en redes sociales de Eduardo Amadeo (secretario general del bloque Pro), denunció que “los K y el Frente Renovador se juntan para que no podamos votar la ley penal contra empresarios corruptos”. En rigor, si el tema se aprobó en general en la Cámara fue, en primer lugar, porque la oposición no kirchnerista dio quórum para tratarlo; además, los diputados que responden a Sergio Massa y a Margarita Stolbizer votaron por la aprobación en general. De hecho, el oficialismo no cuenta con número suficiente para pasar sus iniciativas sin apoyo ajeno. Por otra parte, si la ley aprobada en general no pudo ser tratada en particular no fue por iniciativa de la oposición, sino por una moción de Elisa Carrió (cabeza de la lista portea del oficialismo) que pidió postergar la sesión hasta la semana próxima. El Congreso se vuelve –una vez más- escenario auxiliar de la puja electoral. Tal vez pensando en los resultados que espera del comicio el gobierno hubiera preferido que ocurriera lo que amañadamente informó Amadeo en sus tweets. Pero lo cierto es que las diferencias con el kirchnerismo no son una exclusividad de Cambiemos, del mismo modo que las divergencias con el oficialismo no son un monopolio delcristinismo: la realidad no se deja reducir a la oposición blanco-negro; el antikirchnerismo es plural (Cambiemos, massismo, centroizquierda, justicialismo de Randazzo), la oposición al gobierno tiene muchos matices (desde la confrontación aguda que lidera CFK a la crítica constructiva de renovadores y peronistas como Pichetto,Bossio, Randazzo o Urtubey o de la “avenida del medio” de Stolbizer y Massa). El juicio de Peña El jefe de gabinete Marcos Peña, hablando para importantes medios porteños, incursionó ayer en la estrategia polarizadora (la negó en las palabras y la confirmó en los hechos). “Yo no creo que la polarización sea una estrategia, ni creo que hayamos hecho nada para promoverla”, dijo. Simultáneamente, fundió en una unidad a Cristina de Kirchner, Massa y Randazzo, asegurando que” vienen del mismo sistema político peronista”, son “variantes del mismo sistema político peronista (…) representan lo que ya pasó en la Argentina”. Si es por “provenir” del peronismo (y aun del kirchnerismo), la propia fuerza oficialista no podría tirar la primera piedra: Graciela Ocaña, que encabeza la lista bonaerense de Cambiemos, fue ministra con el kirchnerismo; el presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Emilio Monzó, fue ministro de Scioli. Para no hablar del contingente peronista que se integró el Pro porteño (¿Rodríguez Larreta por caso, no fue funcionario con Menem; Santilli no tiene pecado original peronista?) o de las distintas vertientes del mismo origen que convergen en el gobierno bonaerense de María Eugenia Vidal. El purismo que esgrime Peña, que alerta contra el peronismo como si se tratara de una enfermedad infecciosa o una sustancia contaminante, puede tener raíces en una segmento del oficialismo (sin duda en parte del lilismo cívico, en parte del Pro, quizás en el propio Peña) pero en estas circunstancias tiene un sentido instrumental, responde a una táctica electoral determinada. Su lógica no es “la verdad” (que el oficialismo flamea constantemente como un eslogan: “decimos la verdad”), sino la operación política. Las divergencias entre el kirchnerismo y peronistas como Randazzo, Pichetto, Schiaretti, De la Sota o Massa están a la vista. El gobierno experimenta esas diferencias desde que asumió, porque ese peronismo no kirchnerista es socio objetivo y activo de la gobernabilidad, mientras el kirchnerismo apuesta a una restauración (y, en ese marco, a un debilitamiento de la gobernabilidad y del gobierno de Macri). La estrategia de la polarización y juicios en la línea de los de Peña, en lugar de aislar al sector confrontativo parecen empujar hacia él a sectores que han tomado distancia de él, lo han enfrentado y, en algunos casos, desarticularon sus intentos quedantistas. La polarización y la calle Un matiz particular de la confrontación aguda se manifestó el mismo miércoles en otro escenario: la calle. Las “formaciones especiales” que actúan a la vera del kirchnerismo se propusieron poner a prueba la autoridad del oficialismo transgrediendo expresamente las normas con las que el gobierno pretende ordenar la agitación urbana: se presentaron con máscaras y palos, no dejaron carriles libres en la Avenida 9 de Julio, obstruyeron el metrobus, quemaron cubiertas e instalaron carpas. En jurisdicción de la Ciudad Autónoma, le tocó actuar al Jefe de gobierno local, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, que venía siendo internamente criticado en el oficialismo por su renuencia a poner orden cuando las papas queman. Esta vez pasó el examen con un aprobado en la materia disolución (la policía fue felicitada hasta por el jefe de los senadores peronistas, Miguel Pichetto); la nota debería ser más baja en la materia prevención: una inteligencia más sagaz y perceptiva tal vez podría haber anticipado la movida de los violentos y ahorrado aflicciones y demoras a los porteños. Alentar la polarización con lógica electoralista tiene consecuencias más allá de las urnas; por ejemplo, en la inseguridad y el bloqueo urbano (como lo sufren los porteños) o en los mercados, como lo subrayó con interés propio el ministro Dujovne. ¿No habrá llegado la hora de abandonar pretensiones exclusivistas e intentar seriamente la búsqueda de acuerdos que ofrezcan un horizonte extenso de orden, gobernabilidad y previsibilidad?

Carlo Borsani
l'eroe cieco

La pattuglia di partigiani comunisti, con le cicche fumanti ancora in bocca, sollevarono il corpo della loro ultima vittima, ancora calda della vita che l'aveva abbandonata, e lo gettarono sulla carretta della spazzatura che si erano portati dietro. Dal foro della nuca del cadavere, colò altro sangue a lordare l'asfalto.
Poi il più intelligente del gruppo, prese un pennello e della vernice e vergò su un cartello queste parole : “ EX MEDAGLIA D'ORO”, pensando con quell'EX di fare della facile ironia.
Chi era la persona assassinata ad appena 28 anni, in Piazza Susa a Milano ? Si chiamava Carlo Borsani ed era un ufficiale di fanteria del Regio Esercito,prima sul fronte occidentale e quindi in Grecia dove nel 1941 per il suo comportamento eroico era stato insignito della medaglia d'oro al V.M., a seguito di un colpo di mortaio fu li li per morire ma nonostante numerose ferite si salvò perdendo totalmente la vista.
Benchè cieco, volle tornare al fronte per rincuorare con la sua presenza i suoi compagni d'arme , dopo il 43, scelse di aderire alla R.S.I. , tuttavia egli non era un esaltato e anzi tentava di evitare la guerra civile incombente.
Fu nominato da Mussolini Presidente della Associazione dei mutilati ed invalidi di guerra e direttore di un quotidiano del Regime ma, a causa del suo desiderio di superare gli odi e le intolleranze fratricide, la componente più oltranzista della RSI lo volle allontanare e così fu. Con la caduta del regime Repubblicano, gli fu offerta la possibilità di fuggire all'estero che egli con grande coraggio e serenità rifiutò.
Poi il 29 aprile del 1945, quando, quattro idioti con il fazzoletto rosso al collo, lo prelevarono dall' Istituto Oftalmico di Milano, lo trascinarono in strada e lo ammazzarono in modo sbrigativo. In seguito i mandanti cercarono di accreditarlo come un istigatore di violenze e atrocità, mentre in realtà Carlo Borsani salvò numerosi partigiani prigionieri dal plotone di esecuzione.
Era un poeta, un giornalista, un guerriero ma soprattutto un eroe e il fatto che fosse cieco non inficia in alcun modo la sua figura.
I suoi assassini dopo la sua uccisione, lo portarono in giro per Milano sulla carretta, sino all'obitorio e poi al Cimitero del Musocco, dove venne sepolto al Campo 10, Campo dell'Onore, accanto ai suoi camerati con cui spesso era in disaccordo.
Di fronte a Carlo Borsani i suoi killer, fanno la figura dei pigmei di fronte ad un gigante. Borsani ebbe due figli, una bimba e un piccolo che nacque pochissimi mesi dopo il suo omicidio.

          Mario U Balan   
L'assassinio del barista del Bar G.... di Voltri
( Si ringrazia per l'informazione una gentile signora )
Era un giovanotto intelligente e simpatico, un po' fuori dalle righe, faceva il barista in un locale che è tuttora nel centro di Genova Voltri e che per ovvi motivi non posso nominare, si chiamava Mario, e come soprannome era conosciuto come Mario U Balan, era un ottimo dipendente, la sua datrice di lavoro, la signora Chiara, gli voleva bene.
Pochi sapevano dell'orientamento sessuale de ragazzo, ma quei pochi, visti i tempi, non dicevano nulla. I tempi erano crudi e tempestosi. Il Regime Fascista Repubblicano era da poco crollato, e per poco o quasi nulla, si poteva perdere la vita. Qualcuno cominciò a fare circolare la voce che il barista fosse una spia dei Repubblichini , che avesse contribuito con le sue spiate a fare arrestare dei partigiani, poi che frequentasse i repubblichini con cui secondo queste voci fosse in grande confidenza.
Questa era la prassi come nei processi alle streghe , la sua sorte era già segnata, si voleva solo spargere ancora un po di fango, tanto per giustificare quello che stava per accadere al poveretto.
Un giorno il solito gruppo di valorosi partigiani lo andò a prendere, Mario era dietro il banco del bar, gli energumeni lo trascinarono fuori, nessuno degli avventori e neppure la padrona fecero nulla, tutti erano pietrificati dal terrore che potesse capitare anche a loro.
 A calci e pugni gli fecero fare la strada sino alla piazza del Municipio, in quel posto, in mezzo alla gente lo ammazzarono come una bestia, senza pietà.

          O que se espera de um Papa com esse nome?   
O que se espera de um Papa com esse nome?
 qui, 14/03/13
por: Andre Trigueiro

 Ao homenagear Francisco de Assis na escolha do nome que o acompanhará ao longo do pontificado que se inicia, o cardeal argentino Jorge Mario Bergoglio, agora Papa Francisco, poderia se inspirar no poverello de Assis para promover algumas inovações na forma como a Igreja administra seu patrimônio e seu imenso rebanho. Respeitosamente, compartilharei aqui algumas sugestões sem a pretensão de que elas cheguem ao Vaticano – imerso em inúmeros problemas e desafios mais urgentes – mas a todos aqueles que compreendem a imensa responsabilidade que é tornar-se o primeiro Papa da história a chamar-se Francisco. 1 – Francisco de Assis veio ao mundo há oito séculos para constranger a opulência e poder político de uma igreja que se afastara dos princípios mais elementares do evangelho de Jesus. Como líder espiritual e chefe de estado, o Papa Francisco poderia dar o exemplo de austeridade sem precedentes na forma como a Igreja realiza suas compras, planeja suas obras físicas, organiza eventos e cerimônias, define logísticas de viagem e hospedagem, enfim, tudo o que represente consumo e posse de bens. Usar com parcimônia e moderação. Combater excessos de toda ordem. Ser simples por convicção e princípios éticos. 2 – Francisco de Assis é conhecido como o protetor dos animais, a quem sempre consagrou respeito e veneração. No mundo moderno, animais das mais variadas espécies ainda sofrem toda sorte de violência. Alguns são supliciados por diversão. Outros são alvos da crueldade obstinada de seus donos. As leis de proteção dos animais – presentes em vários países – não conseguem erradicar as muitas atrocidades cometidas contra os bichos. Os que são consumidos como alimentos foram reduzidos à categoria de “proteína animal”, o que credenciaria seus proprietários a tratá-los como se não houvesse ali um ser senciente, capaz de sentir dor. Papa Francisco tem a preciosa chance de denunciar tudo isso e defender protocolos éticos de criação, transporte e abate de animais, bem como a proteção das espécies silvestres. 3 – Francisco de Assis também é conhecido como o padroeiro da ecologia. No “cântico das criaturas”, eternizou a sacralização da natureza em suas múltiplas formas e expressões. O Papa Francisco tem a chance de reeditar o “cântico das criaturas” – versão século XXI – de forma ainda mais contundente em defesa da vida. Pode exercer sua enorme influência em favor dos recursos naturais não renováveis e dos ecossistemas ameaçados de extinção. Sem meio ambiente sadio e protegido não há “vida em abundância”, parafraseando o Cristo. Sem vida, a religião não faz o menor sentido. 4 – A abnegação em favor dos pobres – que o levou inclusive a renunciar a todos os bens e viver como eles – fez de Francisco de Assis um legítimo representante da caridade, do amor ao próximo e da abnegação de si mesmo em favor dos valores espirituais. Hoje sabe-se que as principais vítimas das mudanças climáticas, da escassez de água doce e limpa, da destruição da biodiversidade e de todas as manifestações de desequilíbrio ecológico em diferentes pontos do planeta são justamente os mais pobres. O Papa Francisco tem, portanto, a oportunidade de conjugar em um mesmo movimento apostólico as lutas em favor da inclusão social e do meio ambiente. São ações que se complementam e se misturam. Uma mesma causa. 5 – Que ninguém se iluda com o fato de o Papa Francisco ser o chefe de estado de um país que ocupa uma área de apenas meio quilômetro quadrado com aproximadamente novecentos moradores. Ele é o líder espiritual de 1,2 bilhão de pessoas. O que disser, o que fizer, o que escrever, seus gestos, suas companhias, hábitos e comportamentos, risos e reprovações terão repercussão imediata mundo afora. Usar isso em favor dos valores franciscanos – humildade, simplicidade, fraternidade, abnegação em favor dos pobres, etc – fará toda a diferença. 6 – O Papa Francisco terá vez, voz e voto nos encontros multilaterais da ONU que discutem os rumos do planeta. O novo Papa pode tornar o Vaticano ainda mais ativo e presente nesses debates, qualificando seus negociadores e mobilizando católicos do mundo inteiro a acompanhar os rumos desses acordos (sobre clima, biodiversidade, água, desertificação,etc) e pressionarem pelo sucesso deles. 7 – Mesmo nas miudezas do dia-a-dia em seu novo endereço, o Papa Francisco poderá promover ajustes em favor da ecoeficiência. Consumo inteligente de água e energia, segregação de resíduos, compras públicas sustentáveis, frota de veículos mais econômica (quem sabe uma versão elétrica do papamóvel?) são medidas que podem ser otimizadas no Vaticano e estimuladas pelas paróquias do mundo inteiro. Quem sabe o novo papa interfira desde já nos protocolos do próximo conclave, e substitua por decreto o ritual de carbonização das cédulas (que sinaliza os rumos das votações pela cor das fumaças) por algum outro método que não polua ainda mais os céus de Roma? Seja qual for o rumo que o Papa Francisco decidir tomar, terá pela frente, pelo resto de seus dias (ou de seu pontificado, posto que há o precedente da renúncia) um nome forte, emblemático, pleno de significado que marcará seus passos como o sucessor de Pedro. A simplicidade como guia, a pobreza como referência, a natureza como objeto de veneração e respeito. Que o Papa seja sempre Francisco.

le Sénégal inaugure sa troisième centrale solaire en moins d'un an

10518419-17274612.jpg

Le président sénégalais Macky Sall a procédé jeudi à l'inauguration de la troisième centrale solaire photovoltaïque du pays, d'une capacité de 30 Mégawatts (Mw), à Méouane, dans la région de Thiès (centre-est), a constaté Xinhua.
Après l'inauguration en octobre dernier de la centrale solaire de Bokhol, dans la région de Saint-Louis, et en novembre de celle de Malicounda, dans le département de Mbour, le Sénégal a maintenant une troisième centrale fonctionnelle.
D'un coût de 27 milliards de francs CFA, la centrale de Santhiou Mékhé fournira 30 Mw d'électricité pour la consommation de 200.000 ménages.
Selon Macky Sall, cette initiative de recourir à l'énergie solaire traduit la volonté de son gouvernement de "promouvoir les énergies propres et renouvelables", conformément aux engagements du Sénégal envers la COP21 de Paris et la COP22 de Marrakech.
"La réalisation de cette centrale s'inscrit dans notre marche résolue vers la résorption définitive du déficit de production d'énergie. Dès à présent, nous allons dépasser les 20% d'énergies solaires auxquels nous avons souscrits dans le Plan Sénégal émergent. Il faut d'abord un mix énergétique pour sortir de la tyrannie du pétrole", a affirmé Macky Sall.
Selon le président sénégalais, la réalisation de cette politique a été possible grâce à la "combinaison intelligente" des énergies nouvelles telles que l'énergie solaire, mais aussi le gaz et l'hydroélectricité, à travers des organismes tels que l'Organisation pour la mise en valeur du fleuve Sénégal (OMVS) et l'Organisation pour la mise en valeur du fleuve Gambie (OMVG).
"Ceci fera du Sénégal un pays exportateur d'énergies, dont le coût doit nécessairement baisser, entraînant plus de compétitivité de l'économie et de pouvoir d'achat des populations", a-t-il déclaré, soulignant que "le Sénégal est resté leader en Afrique de l'Ouest dans la promotion de l'énergie solaire".
Macky Sall a également annoncé la construction "très prochainement" de huit autres centrales solaires à travers le pays, précisant que la centrale solaire de Kaoune (centre, région de Kaolack) serait achevée au mois d'août prochain et celle de Médina Ndakhar (région de Thiès) en octobre.

Here are some key points brought up in the research:

Our own statistics say that well over two-thirds of our borrowers repay their loans early or on time, indicating that borrowers are fully aware of what they are signing up for.After payday loan were banned in some states in America, the numbers of returned cheques and the income banks made from overdraft fees increased.The current FCA regulations provide a safety net for the borrower, but are they enough? Read our analysis.

“This research brought up a lot of key points, and uncovered some interesting common misconceptions. The payday loan industry is one of the most hated industries, so it’s fascinating to look at it objectively, using statistics and external studies to uncover some truths about the industry. It’s an easy read, and I’d really recommend it for anyone with an opinion on payday loans,” says Elizabeth Redfern, head researcher.

What’s in the report?

Cashfloat begins the investigation with a look at whether payday loans are as unreasonable as they are often portrayed to be, and discuss whether they ever actually help people. Do payday lenders prey on the unaware? Statistics seem to indicate otherwise. Using their unique position as a payday lender, Cashfloat looked at their own data to see how people are coping with their loans.

The article then discusses the possible impact on individuals and the national economy of a complete ban on the payday loan industry. It points to various studies performed in the USA, where individual states each have their own regulations ranging from complete bans to no restrictions on the industry at all. This provides an interesting opportunity for many statistical analyses of the effects of banning payday loans. The results of these studies were often quite surprising.

Are there any suitable alternatives to an outright ban? The option of heavily regulating the industry is explored, followed by a discussion on how successful the current FCA regulations are in protecting the safety of borrowers. Read the full report here.

LA FONDATION DE LA VILLE DE BAGDAD

Par Louise Plun

La ville de Bagdad voit le jour sous le califat des Abbassides, dynastie fondée par Abû al-Abbas As Saffah, descendant de l’oncle du prophète. La période allant de 750 à 861 est une période de grand essor, de progrès et de faste ; tandis que la période allant de 861 à 946 voit se multiplier les difficultés intérieures conduisant à l’effacement progressif des souverains et au morcellement de l’Empire en nombreuses principautés autonomes.
Pendant cette période prospère, marquée par un pouvoir politique fort, un commerce florissant, l’essor de la culture et des idées intellectuelles, naissent et se développent les villes, en particulier Bagdad.

Le contexte politique

Au milieu du VIIème siècle, une conjonction de facteurs aboutit à la chute de la dynastie omeyyade et à l’avènement de la dynastie abbasside. En effet, la lente assimilation de la propagande anti omeyyade dans les régions mécontentes du califat, la permanence d’une agitation chiite restée fidèle à Ali, les difficultés de successions ajoutées aux obstacles d’ordres politique et militaire des califes omeyyades de Damas, ainsi que l’émergence d’un mouvement clandestin révolutionnaire abbasside ayant pour berceau le Khorasan, débouchent en 749 sur le renversement des Omeyyades. Le premier calife de la dynastie abbasside est proclamé : al Saffâh, dit le Généreux. En 754 lui succède son frère désigné, Abu Ja’far, né d’une mère berbère, qui prend le nom d’al-Mansûr. Cependant, cette succession se voit contestée et engendre une révolte. Dans ce contexte insurrectionnel, le nouveau calife répond dans un premier temps par la force. Cependant, dans le but d’ancrer sa dynastie dans le paysage politique, al-Mansûr fait le choix d’affirmer son pouvoir en décidant en 762 de la création d’une nouvelle capitale abbasside : Bagdad. Ce choix résulte également de la volonté de rompre avec le modèle omeyyade en dotant le nouvel Empire d’un nouveau centre. En effet, là où les Omeyyades s’appuyaient sur les Arabes syriens de Damas, les Abbassides s’appuient sur des contingents composés d’Arabes d’Iran et de convertis, les mawalis, originaires en grande majorité du Khorasan, berceau de la révolution abbasside. La capitale de la nouvelle dynastie se rapproche donc de ses alliés sans s’éloigner de ses ennemis politiques afin de les garder sous contrôle. Son emplacement s’ancre désormais dans les terres originelles du pouvoir perse achéménide, non loin de l’ancienne capitale, Babylone.

Entre mythe et réalité

Selon al-Ya’qûbî, fonctionnaire de l’administration califale, historien et géographe, le calife al-Mansûr aurait déclaré en arrivant sur le site de la future ville de Bagdad « c’est bien la ville qu’aux dires de mon père je dois fonder […]. Cette « île » bordée à l’Est par le Tigre et à l’Ouest par l’Euphrate, se révélera être le carrefour de l’univers ». Dès lors, c’est entre le mythe et la véracité historique que l’histoire de la fondation de Bagdad se révèle.
Selon la légende, l’emplacement de la ville abbasside aurait été prédestiné par Muhammad qui en aurait eu la révélation, moyen à l’époque d’enraciner le pouvoir abbasside dans les pas du prophète. En effet, selon ce dernier, l’air y aurait été pur, la terre fertile, la température équilibrée et les ressources abondantes et variées. La renommée de l’emplacement transparait encore aujourd’hui à travers le nom de la ville elle-même, puisqu’en persan, « bâgh » signifie « jardin ». Le lieu primitif de la ville était « Baghdalth », signifiant « Dieu donné ». Ainsi, le caractère religieux et prophétique de la ville est un aspect important de la fondation de la ville, et pose les bases d’une cité à l’avenir prometteur puisque prédéterminé par la volonté de Dieu.
Pourtant en Orient, la puissance d’une ville se mesure à son temps de prospérité. L’astrologue Noubaht, « nouvelle fortune » en persan, prédit pour Bagdad une durée de vie similaire au nombre 309 de la Sourate XVIII du Coran, symbolique du temps d’attente pendant lequel les Alides, fils du prophète, attendirent avant de retrouver leurs droits méconnus depuis la mort de ce dernier. Puis Bagdad se voit donner le nom de la ville de « la paix », réunissant en effet tous les critères de prospérité que le poète d’Al-Andalous, Mansour an Namary décrit ainsi : « As-tu vu de tes yeux sur la longueur et la largeur de la terre une maison pareille à Bagdad ? Certes c’est le paradis terrestre. »
Pour les historiens cependant, la ville n’a rien d’extraordinaire. Elle serait en effet désertique, les pluies y seraient rares, le climat y atteindrait des extrêmes. Ainsi, pour comprendre l’emplacement de la ville, il faut regarder à l’échelle de la Mésopotamie. La région de Bagdad est une zone plate constituée d’immenses étendues de plaines. A l’Est se situent les montagnes de Zagros, à l’Ouest, le désert de Syrie. Mais la présence des deux fleuves que sont le Tigre et l’Euphrate en fait, avec la région de la vallée du Nil, la région la plus fertile du Moyen-Orient, d’où son nom de « Croissant fertile ». D’autres facteurs topographiques sont à prendre en compte pour expliquer l’emplacement de la ville, en particulier sa position de coeur des voies de circulation : l’une suit l’Euphrate, l’autre le Tigre, la troisième le Satt al-Garraf, et la dernière passe à la limite du Zagros. Dès lors, c’est de Bagdad que l’on peut rejoindre le plus rapidement Alep, la côte méditerranéenne, l’Egypte, ainsi que les lieux saints de l’islam. D’un point de vue stratégique, le lieu est avantageusement protégé par les deux fleuves qui constituent un rempart naturel.
Dès lors, la fondation de Bagdad ne résulte pas d’un facteur décisif comme ce fut le cas pour Jérusalem, construite sur les ruines de l’Acropole jébuséenne primitive. Bagdad est une ville construite de toute pièce, dont la fondation reste l’un des événements les plus importants de l’histoire du monde arabe et islamique.

Bagdad : reflet d’une nouvelle conception du pouvoir

Pour déterminer l’emplacement exact de sa capitale, al-Mansûr fait appel à des spécialistes, des astronomes, des géomètres « habiles, des experts dans l’art de construire » [1], des physiciens, des ingénieurs, afin de déterminer la qualité des sols, de l’air, du climat. Al-Yaqûbî cite deux spécialistes : al-Fazâri, le premier à fabriquer des astrolabes (outils permettant de mesurer la hauteur des astres), Mâshallâh, astrologue personnel du calife et savant juif. Ainsi, les plans de la ville auraient été dressés en 758-759 au « mois de rabi’ I de l’an 141 » I [2], c’est-à-dire en juillet 758. Ainsi, la construction de la ville débute sous les auspices de la science. Al-Mansûr ne fait débuter les travaux que lorsqu’il « eut à sa disposition cent mille ouvriers et manoeuvres » [3]. La « ville ronde » nait. Cette forme géométrique reflète la volonté d’affirmation des Abbassides, forme nouvelle, géométrique parfaite et rigoureuse, à l’image de leur pouvoir. Effectivement, la figure géométrique ronde est le symbole de la perfection et du cycle permanent, un signe parfait déjà en vigueur chez les Grecs. La ville a donc cette particularité de s’inscrire à l’intérieur d’un rempart circulaire, alors que les villes du monde méditerranéen ont été plutôt carrées ou rectangulaires.
D’un périmètre d’environ dix kilomètres, la ville donne une vision solaire du pouvoir, reflétant la puissance du calife. Sur l’esplanade centrale se dresse le palais du calife et sa porte d’Or. Ce somptueux palais est le symbole d’une cité sensée se suffire à elle-même. Le palais possède une coupole verte d’une extrême magnificence, dans le but d’effacer le souvenir des coupoles vertes omeyyades de Damas ou de Wasit. Le calife reçoit, dans la plus grande solennité, au centre du palais, c’est-à-dire au centre des centres. A proximité du palais se situe la Grande Mosquée. Autour du palais, les bâtiments administratifs sont voisins des demeures princières, constituant ainsi le cercle le plus proche du calife. L’enceinte extérieure est aménagée de quatre portes se faisant face deux par deux : la porte de Kufa, la porte de Basra, la porte du Khurasan et la porte de Syrie. Ces quatre portes correspondent aux quatre avenues rejoignant le centre de la circonférence et débouchant parallèlement sur les principales régions composant l’Empire abbasside. Ainsi, le calife est, symboliquement, au centre de son Empire. Toujours à l’image du calife, une extrême richesse s’y déploie, quantité de bois précieux compose la ville. Al-Mansûr a ainsi une vision claire de sa politique, celle-ci passant dans un premier temps par l’image du lieu de son pouvoir, Bagdad étant en effet à la fois la vitrine et l’outils de celui-ci : un pouvoir centralisé et fort.
La ville de Bagdad ne se limite cependant pas à l’enceinte royale. Dans les alentours de la ville se situent les espaces commerçants nécessaires à la vie quotidienne. Les faubourgs sont également organisés selon un plan d’ensemble, divisés à leur tour en quatre quartiers, selon al-Yaqûbî. Ces quartiers accueillent chacun un corps de métiers, ce qui facilite non seulement leur gestion, mais également le juste et correct prélèvement des impôts et des taxes. Ainsi, autour de la ville ronde de trouvent les sûqs des librairies près de la porte de Basra, ceux des chevaux sur la route du Khorasan, ceux des tanneurs, bouchers, tisserands, métiers ayant des besoins d’approvisionnement en eau, marchands de produits de luxe, (épices, pierres…), bains mais également mosquées.
La situation géographique de Bagdad prédispose la ville à jouer un rôle de centre économique important, se trouvant au centre d’un califat s’étendant de l’Atlantique à l’Inde. « Le centre de ce bas monde, le nombril de la terre » [4] est également une ville cosmopolite dans laquelle se sont établis des marchands arabes ou étrangers. Les historiens estiment le nombre d’habitant de Bagdad à environ 1,5 million. A la mort de son fondateur, en 774, la ville est une métropole s’étendant sur les deux rives du Tigre.
A partir de 814, le calife ne réside plus dans la ville ronde et s’installe sur la rive orientale du Tigre. La capitale abbasside se déplace à Samarra, sous le règne du calife al Mu’tasim, qui prend en 833 la tête de la dynastie. En 865 cependant, le pouvoir retourne à Bagdad. La ville subit de terribles dommages au cours des siècles.
Aujourd’hui, seuls des plans théoriques de la ville nous sont parvenus, les fouilles étant impossibles, le site se trouvant sous les habitations d’aujourd’hui et du fait de la situation politique et militaire du pays qui freine les recherches archéologiques. Cependant, Bagdad, ville de pouvoir, ville cosmopolite, ville de savoir, a participé pendant des siècles à l’essor du monde musulman, d’un point de vue économique, intellectuel, scientifique, politique ce qui lui vaut sa renommée encore aujourd’hui.

Dernières actualités

Mayy Ziyadah (connue aussi sous la transcription « May Ziadé ») est une écrivaine et une intellectuelle d’origine libanaise. Elle est considérée comme la première figure féministe libanaise, questionnant dans ses œuvres le problème de la condition des femmes arabes et analysant l’articulation de l’écriture et de la féminité. Dans une œuvre riche où s’affirment subjectivité et considérations politiques, Mayy Ziyadah a su imposer une série de réflexions sur l’un des débats réformistes importants de la Nahda, la place des femmes dans la société. Elle est aussi l’une des premières à avoir proposé une théorisation essentialiste de l’écriture féminine, qui résonne avec les attentes qu’elle exposait sur le plan social, à savoir l’instruction des filles. Évoluant au cœur de la vie mondaine cairote de l’avant et après-Première Guerre mondiale, elle est une figure incontournable de la vie intellectuelle arabe du premier tiers du XXe siècle.

Une actrice du renouveau intellectuel arabe

Mayy Ziyadah - de son vrai nom Marie Elias Ziyadah - est née à Nazareth en 1886 d’un père maronite libanais et d’une mère orthodoxe palestinienne (1). Elle passe une partie de son enfance en Palestine, à Nazareth, où elle suit ses premiers enseignements. Elle arrive ensuite au Liban avec son père, parti travailler au Kesrouan, dans la région du Mont-Liban. À 14 ans, elle intègre le collège des Visitandines d’Antoura, où elle suit un enseignement en français. Les cours de littérature française, notamment les romantiques, influencent profondément sa littérature par la suite (2).
En 1904, elle rejoint ses parents en Palestine. Elle lit et se cultive beaucoup par elle-même (3). Leur départ au Caire en 1908 marque ses premières publications : son père dirige alors la revue arabe Al-Mahroussa à laquelle elle collabore. Elle suit parallèlement des études de langues à l’Université égyptienne, dont elle sort diplômée en 1917 (4), armée de notions d’anglais, d’italien, d’allemand, d’espagnol, de grec moderne ainsi que de latin (5).
La gloire de Mayy Ziyadah est intimement liée à la vie culturelle du Caire, bouillonnante à cette période de la Nahda. En 1912, elle fonde un salon littéraire qui se réunit de façon hebdomadaire, et qui devient rapidement le lieu de rendez-vous des grands intellectuels de son temps, accueillant Taha Hussein, Khalil Moutrane, Loutdi as-Sayed, Antoun Gemayel, Walieddine Yakan, Abbas Akkad ou Yacoub Sarrouf (6). Bâti sur le modèle des salons littéraires fondés en Europe aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, il connait un succès exceptionnel pendant plus de vingt ans (7).
Elle publie ses premières études après la Première Guerre mondiale et voyage beaucoup en Europe. Le début des années 1920 marque également le début de son engagement féministe : rapidement, elle multiplie les conférences, les articles et les actions publiques pour discuter la question de la place des femmes dans la société, qui occupe de façon croissante les débats intellectuels depuis le début du XXe siècle. Elle commence d’ailleurs par publier des biographies de grandes militantes féministes d’Égypte, et collabore avec Hoda Shaarawi, alors présidente de l’Union des femmes arabes.
Célibataire et sans enfant, la mort de ses proches au début des années 1930 plonge l’intellectuelle dans un profond chagrin. À la mort de son père en 1929 succède la mort de son amant platonique Khalil Gibran en 1931, puis celle de sa mère en 1932 ; l’isolement moral et intellectuel dans lequel elle est subitement plongée provoque des troubles neurasthéniques. Elle est internée quelques années plus tard pour une période de neuf mois dans un asile d’aliéné à Beyrouth, qu’elle quitte en 1939 et passe ses derniers temps au Caire, à écrire. Elle y meurt, le 19 octobre 1941, laissant derrière elle plus de quinze ouvrages de poésie, de littérature et de livres traduits (notamment d’Arthur Conan Doyle ou de Friedrich Max Müller).

Une œuvre littéraire personnelle et engagée

Mayy Ziyadah est très influencée par le mouvement de la Renaissance arabe, la Nahda, qui s’est développée principalement en Égypte au début du siècle. De confession chrétienne, elle participe au grand mouvement réformiste de la pensée qui s’affirme à l’époque : elle défend le brassage des cultures, ayant elle-même grandit au sein d’une civilisation marquée par la confrontation de l’Orient et de l’Occident, et qui voit se mélanger les trois religions du livre. Pour diffuser le plus largement possible ses idées dans la société dans laquelle elle évolue, elle écrit la plupart de ses ouvrages et de ses articles en arabe. Elle utilise d’ailleurs souvent des pseudonymes masculins pour exprimer des idées qu’il n’aurait pas été permis pour une femme d’exprimer ; on trouve dons des textes signés de sa plume sous le nom de Kaled Ra’afat ou de Sindbad - même s’il lui arrive aussi d’user de pseudonymes féminins, particulièrement lorsqu’il s’agit de création poétique, comme Isis Copia ou Aida (8).
Elle publie d’ailleurs son premier recueil de poésie en 1910 sous le pseudonyme Isis Copia. Fleurs de Rêve est un recueil de poèmes lyriques écrits en français qui dépeignent la nature libanaise et ses lieux privilégiés, dans l’héritage de Lamartine, qui chantait lui aussi la beauté de la vallée de Hamana. Ce recueil attise la curiosité des critiques littéraires en Égypte et au Liban (9). Elle continue d’écrire des articles dans la revue de son père, puis élargit petit à petit son horizon de publications, publiant dans les plus grandes revues arabes de l’époque (imprimées au Caire, mais souvent dirigées par des Libanais) : elle écrit ainsi pour Al-HilalAl-Mouktatraf ou encore Al-Ahram (10).
Entre 1920 et 1925, elle réunit les articles et les essais écrits pour différentes revues et les publie en quatre volumes. Alors qu’elle écrit régulièrement de courtes nouvelles et compose des pièces de théâtre, elle s’engage socialement pour discuter de l’inégalité dans la société, et particulièrement de la place des femmes dans les hiérarchies. En 1921, elle donne une conférence présentée sous le titre « Le But de la vie » (11). C’est dans cette conférence qu’elle appelle pour la première fois les femmes à une prise de conscience de leur situation au sein de la société. Elle y prône une plus grande aspiration à la liberté, et préconise une ouverture sur l’Occident tout en restant très proche des traditions orientales. Cette conférence fait suite à la publication en 1920 de son second ouvrage, Bahethat Al-Badiya (Les Chercheurs du désert), dans lequel elle met en scène le personnage de la féministe Malak Nasef, qui avait pris pour surnom « Bahethat al-Badiya » et qui militait dans son ouvrage Al Nesa’eyat pour l’émancipation des femmes dans ces sociétés dirigées par la solidarité masculine. Elle réalise également une étude biographique d’une autre dirigeante importante du mouvement féministe en Égypte, Aïcha Teymour. L’objectif de Mayy Ziyadah dans ces deux ouvrages est de présenter l’oppression pesant sur les femmes dans la société arabe depuis même l’étape prénatale, la naissance d’une fille étant rarement célébrée avec autant d’enthousiasme que la naissance d’un garçon. Protestant contre l’enfermement des femmes, elle appelle avant tout dans cet ouvrage à l’instruction des femmes, seul rempart établi contre la superstition. « Elle formule avec énergie son opposition à la conception de l’homme/dieu au sein du couple et refuse de voir en l’homme un maître absolu », commente Carmen Boustani (12) ; elle s’oppose à la polygamie et à la répudiation, et appelle à l’abolition du voile. Elle poursuit ses réflexions dans un article audacieux publié en 1926 dans le journal El-Mouktatef, intitulé « Comment je voudrais que l’homme soit », dans lequel elle cherche à donner aux femmes les outils nécessaires pour qu’elles saisissent leur individualité propre. Il est toutefois intéressant de noter qu’étant née de confession chrétienne et vivant dans une société principalement guidée par les principes de la religion musulmane, Mayy Ziyadah ne se sent pas libre de parler au nom des féministes musulmanes, et discute avant tout des mesures sociales.
Malgré son usage de certains pseudonymes masculin, Mayy Ziyadah chante régulièrement l’intérêt d’une écriture féminine. Outre ses essais critiques sur trois auteures pionnières du monde arabe édités dans Flux et reflux, elle écrit dans un ouvrage à caractère autobiographique intitulé Souvenirs de prime jeunesse (1928) : « Nous commençons d’écrire non seulement pour remplir les pages, mais pour revivre des sentiments avant même de les avoir écrits. Ce courage, nous ne le tenons pas de celles qui nous ont précédées, mais de nous-mêmes, cherchant à révéler l’âme de la femme dans ce qu’elle écrit d’elle-même, non dans ce que les hommes ont écrit d’elle » (13).

Les Lettres à Gibran Khalil Gibran : style et expression littéraire d’une femme libre

Mayy Ziyadah est aussi connue pour la relation qu’elle a entretenue avec l’écrivain et penseur libanais Gibran Khalil Gibran, avec lequel elle a entretenu une importante correspondance. Alors qu’elle est à l’époque à New York, leur relation épistolaire - idylle romantique et intellectuelle - a duré jusqu’à la mort de l’auteur du Prophète, en 1931. Ils ne se sont jamais rencontrés, mais elle jura de sa fidélité et ne se maria jamais. Cette relation a eu une influence considérable sur Mayy Ziyadah, dont les lettres témoignent d’une pensée riche, rigoureuse mais également profondément romantique : c’est sans doute à ces lectures que le célèbre critique littéraire et écrivain Jamil Jabre écrit à son sujet : « En lisant May, on ne sait pas tout à fait si son écrit relève du genre romanesque, du souvenir d’enfance, du conte fantastique, du rêve romantique, de l’évocation historique ou de la confession. C’est un mélange si spontané, dans un style si pittoresque qu’il nous tient en haleine, malgré certaines bavures ou banalités. À travers son œuvre, elle tient à nous communiquer tantôt l’intensité d’un bonheur éphémère, tantôt la magie d’un rêve qui nous transporte au-delà de notre existence monotone, en cette luminosité illusoire qui exerce sur nous un effet de transcendance » (14).
Le destin de Mayy Ziyadah est, à l’image de ses influences, tragiquement romantique. Il est aussi pérenne ; son activité et son engagement pour l’amélioration des conditions de la vie des femmes est maintes fois repris par la suite. Actrice incontournable d’un monde intellectuel en ébullition, Alexandre Najjar raconte qu’à son enterrement, Hoda Shaarawi saluait la mémoire de celle qui fut « le meilleur exemple de la femme orientale cultivée » (15).

For all those people who think that Trump's tweets are brilliant at reaching the public and throwing his opponents off balance or whatever other bit of analysis used to show that somehow he's playing three-dimensional chess while the rest of the world can't even set up the checker board, is this really a set of tweets that makes you proud that he's your president?




These morning tweets follow other tweets touting ones supporting policy actions by his administration and the GOP. Does he think anyone will pay attention to any of that when he's tweeting comments on a morning show's appearance and the show's ratings? It's as if he's taken a master a class on self-sabotage.

Isn't he supposed to be in the middle of trying to help a GOP repeal of Obamacare?

Remember when conservatives ridiculed Obama interview talking to GloZell, the woman who is mainly known for eating cereal while sitting in a bathub of milk or going on Between Two Ferns? Well, was any of that less respectful of the office of the presidency than such tweets? I have come to regard Trump's tweets as a verbal expression of his id. That is the level he operates at and we get a glimpse at what impulses control him through Twitter. All his advisers urging him to focus on policy and presenting an image of gravitas are the ego trying to mediate between those impulses and reality. They might win out for hours, even days sometimes, but the id is there ready to take over.

There used to be a time when Republicans claimed that character mattered in the presidency. Today...not so much.

Canada thinks it can control the Internet.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled against Google on Wednesday in a closely-watched intellectual property case over whether judges can apply their own country's laws to all of the Internet.

In a 7-2 decision, the court agreed a British Columbia judge had the power to issue an injunction forcing Google to scrub search results about pirated products not just in Canada, but everywhere else in the world too.

Those siding with Google, including civil liberties groups, had warned that allowing the injunction would harm free speech, setting a precedent to let any judge anywhere order a global ban on what appears on search engines. The Canadian Supreme Court, however, downplayed this objection and called Google's fears "theoretical."
Charles C. W. Cooke comments,
That amusing episode of The I.T. Crowd notwithstanding, “the Internet” is not a single black box somewhere in London, but a massively decentralized network of networks that, while conforming to a few agreed-upon technical specifications, gives new meaning to the word “diffuse.” Or, put another way, “the Internet” is a patchwork quilt of cables, satellites, switches, service providers, cell phones, desktops, laptops, web-servers, and protocols that, taken together, forms the sprawling web to which we are all so accustomed. The beauty of this arrangement is that anybody can participate. Want to be the next Facebook? To start with, at least, all you’ll need is a domain name, an internet connection, and a computer, and . . . that’s it. Though there are certain breakpoints (IP allocation, root DNS, etc.), there is no central permission structure that newcomers have to navigate. It’s open. It’s wild. It’s wonderful.

Now, this is not to say that censorship is impossible. It’s not. If a government wishes to block access to a particular site within the physical borders over which it has jurisdiction, it can do so. Likewise, websites and services that contradict local law can be legally removed, and, if it so wishes, a government can demand that any organization operating on a network within its borders must conform to its rules. What it can’t do, however, is export those judgments abroad.

Suppose that I, a permanent resident of the United States, were to host a website that contained speech that was banned in, say, Germany. Certainly, the German authorities could prevent Germans from seeing my site. And, if anyone chose to mirror my site on server inside Germany, they could shut that person down quite quickly. But they couldn’t have me shut down in America, and they couldn’t prevent people in other countries from accessing my site over the web. My server would be in America, connected to a network in America, subject to the law in America, and guaranteed the protections to which Americans are entitled. The German government, annoyed as it might be, would have to accept that....

And that, ultimately, is why the Canadian Court’s decision is so hilarious. I understand why people are worried about the idea — if taken seriously, it would give any less-free-than-America country an effective veto over the First Amendment. But they shouldn’t fret too much: The judges can say what they like, but their edict is simply unenforceable. If it wishes to do so, the government of Canada can prevail upon Google to abide by its rules within Canada. In addition, it can regulate the web in Canada to prevent access to sites it dislike. But it can’t force Google in America or France or Australia or Singapore to do a single goddamned thing. And thank goodness for that, eh?
I hope that he is correct, but we've seen the EU slapping a $2.7 billion fine on Google because the EU thinks it violates antitrust for Google to promote Google Shopping sites over other shopping sites. I'm not sure what there is about a FREE service like Google that the Europeans don't understand. Are European citizens actually hurt by Google giving them a free shopping search engine and then putting their items at the top? Would they prefer to pay for their search engines? Please, just keep your hands off Google. As more countries try and figure out ways to make money off of fining Google, they should consider the unintended consequences.
“The EU has effectively decided that some companies have become too big to innovate,” Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, said in a statement following the Google Shopping decision. “The EU’s actions have created a cloud of uncertainty that will make large tech companies overly cautious about making changes to the user experience and service offerings that would benefit consumers.”

Jonathan Tobin applies Occam's Razor
to explain why Obama didn't do more about Russia's attempts to interfere in our election last year.
But the real problem here is not so much Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
Despite the efforts by Democrats to blame Russia for Hillary Clinton's loss and their frustration that Obama didn't do more about it, there really is no evidence that the WikiLeaks revelations from John Podesta's emails had any effect on the course of the election.
But there’s a simpler, even more plausible explanation for Obama’s inaction: The president saw that the hacking was having almost no impact on the course of the campaign and thus wasn’t going to mess with the results. Far from the crime of the century, it was, at worst, a minor annoyance to Clinton that Obama obviously felt didn’t warrant a major dustup with Putin.

It’s true that Russia’s actions were outrageous and deserved a strong US response, both then and now. It can also be argued that the public had a right to know about it. But it was only after Clinton lost and she and her supporters began searching for excuses that Russia’s actions were considered an important factor in the outcome.

While Putin was way out of line, the impact of the WikiLeaks document dumps on Clinton’s candidacy was marginal at best.

The contents of the Democratic National Committee e-mails were embarrassing to Podesta and then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who wound up losing her job after proof of DNC collusion with Clinton against Bernie Sanders was produced. But there was almost nothing in those documents that related directly to Clinton, let alone being enough to influence voters.

Every WikiLeaks story was also almost immediately overshadowed by other, more damaging gaffes or revelations about Trump, such as his attack on a Gold Star family or the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Nothing the Russians did matched the damage done by either of those Trump disasters.
Instead of looking for some external events or action, just admit that Hillary was a lousy candidate. That should actually be comforting to the Democrats. With such a compromised candidate whom so many Americans just never liked, they still won the popular vote and came really close to winning the states that put Trump over the top. If they can pick a better candidate in 2020, and can make an appeal for the voters they lost in the Rust Belt, chances are pretty strong that they'll win that year. They should be more concerned about forging a message that doesn't repel independents and those voters they lost in 2016. That's their real challenge and focusing all the time on Russia, Russia, Russia won't help them achieve that goal.


Good to know.
Tell your friendly environmentalist activist. But they're not really interested.
The benefits of fracking far outweigh its costs not only economically, but environmentally, a Stanford University geophysicist said Friday.

After teaching geophysics at Stanford for 30 years Mark Zoback took the helm of Stanford's new Natural Gas Initiative three years ago, he said, because of gas's environmental benefits.

"We did it because there were so many important and obvious environmental benefits to the utilization of natural gas," Zoback said. "So it’s somewhat ironic to be asked to argue for the notion that these benefits outweigh the environmental costs, when it’s the environmental benefits that got me into this business in the first place."

Zoback's remarks opened the annual debate at Stanford's Silicon Valley Energy Summit, and were swiftly challenged by representatives of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Counci
Zoback argued that natural gas can replace coal and "dirty diesel" at significant scale throughout the world, supporting economic growth while slashing carbon emissions. (When burned, natural gas emits about half the CO2 that coal does).

The Senate has some really dumb rules. And the minority party can use them to slow everything down to a standstill. Chuck Schumer is taking advantage of every tool that the rules provide.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day. Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation....

Grassley had sent a joint letter with subcommittee judiciary chairman Lindsey Graham to the FBI Tuesday requesting all documents related to the FBI FISA surveillance requests on the Russia investigation.

“Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress. It’s disturbing and reckless for the Minority Leader to block the briefing. We’ve seen too many recent reminders of how unsafe the world is today. This is no time to play politics with our national security,” he said.
If they could use the nuclear option to get rid of a much more prominent rule concerning filibusters of Supreme Court nominees, why not use it to get rid of this stupid rule. If it's a "rarely-used tactic," no one except the angry members of the minority party will miss it.

I had so much fun last night. I'm visiting my daughters in D.C. and we went to the Nats-Cubs game. I haven't seen a live baseball game in about 50 years since I was a kid and we'd go to the Cubs games. So I scheduled my trip to catch the game. After falling behind in the seventh inning, I thought it was pretty hopeless for the Cubs based on the way they've been playing this year. But they rallied in the ninth inning to go ahead on a triple by Jon Jay. It was so exciting and I could celebrate with all the other Cubs fans in the stadium including a cute little girl, about 10 years old, sitting with her family of Cubs fans in front of me who told her parents that John Jay had written five of the Federalist Papers. Exactly right and the Cubs' Jon Jay was a hero tonight. Go Federalists!


What a blast! And then as walked out of the stadium and came back on the Metro and hear all the Nationals fans complaining about the Nationals' bullpen. Eh, they're still doing well. I'm just hoping that the Cubs are recovering their mojo. At least their closer, Wade Davis, another historically relevant name on the Cubs roster

          P&P Blogger Profile: Derrick Story   
Derrick Story of The Digital Story
(Photo Credit: George Jardine)

Derrick Story runs the popular photography blog titled, “The Digital Story” and writes for O’Reilly as their Digital Media Evangelist. He’s also a contributing writer for Macworld Magazine and author of several books on digital photography. His photography business, Story Photography, is based in Santa Rosa, CA.

Why do you blog?
Blogging is the most efficient way for me to share information on a daily basis. On TDS for example, I can write and publish a helpful tip in about 20 minutes (that thousands of people can read almost immediately). That’s fairly efficient. I like the blogging platform because it lets me focus on the message and not get too bogged down in the tools.

If you only had time to read three blogs a day, which ones would they be?
Aside from the blogs I oversee (TDS, Inside Aperture, Inside Lightroom, etc.), I enjoy scanning Engadget, PhotographyBLOG, and I must admit, I like The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs.

How long have you been using Photoshop/been a photographer?
I’ve been a photographer since my teenage years working for the local newspaper. I got hooked on Photoshop 2.5, and have been using the application ever since.

What type of camera(s) do you shoot with?
My assignment camera is a Canon 5D DSLR, and my favorite lenses are the 16-35 f/2.8 L II and the 70-200 f/4 L. But I like compact cameras too, especially ones that shoot good video also. My current pocket camera is the Canon PowerShot SD700. It takes great pictures, has image stabilization, and records clean video.

Mac or PC?
Intel Mac - MacBook Pro 17”

What is your favorite piece of photo or computer equipment (other than your camera)?
I think the iPhone is a great tool for photographers/bloggers on the go. I find that I’m doing a much better job of keeping up with email, monitoring my web sites, and communicating with clients and coworkers. Plus, it’s absolutely great for showing off photos, uploading images directly to Flickr, watching videos, and oh yeah, it’s a good music player too.

What piece of equipment would you most like to get but don’t have?
I would absolutely love to have the new Canon 1Ds Mark III, but I don’t see one in my near future. Anyone out there have a spare body they can lend me?

What advice do you have for a novice creative professional/photographer?
Get a photo buddy and/or become part of a photography community. If you have someone to go shooting with, and who will look critically at your photos, you will shoot more and improve faster. As for community, the nickname for The Digital Story is “your virtual camera club.” It’s a place for photographers to come together, learn new techniques, show off their pictures, and get feedback on their work. Being part of a community helps us improve as artists and craftsmen.

What inspires you to create?
I like to have things to show for my efforts. When I was working my way through college, I couldn’t generate enough income as a photographer only, so I mowed lawns too. Believe it or not, I found that work very satisfying because I could stand back and admire my work after I finished working on a yard.

Today, I can support myself making pictures and writing, and I find it very satisfying to create new things out of thin air.

What would be your most important piece of advice about life?
Don’t take yourself too seriously. It inhibits growth and gets in the way of learning new things. Much better to have an open mind and be humble.

Where would you most like to live (other than where you live now)?
I live in a great place now (Sonoma County, CA), but I wouldn’t mind having an apartment in Vancouver BC too. I love the combination of Canadian-Pan Pacific culture with great outdoor activities.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m a walker. It’s a great form of exercise and allows me to clear the cobwebs out of my head.

What talent would you most like to have?
Wish I could sing...

          WikiLeaks afirma que Governo dos EUA pode localizar PCs com Windows por Wi-Fi   

Espionagem

Nesta sexta-feira (30), o WikiLeaks revelou informações que mostram que a agência de inteligência dos Estados Unidos (a CIA) utiliza uma ferramenta capaz de descobrir a identidade de redes e máquinas via Wi-Fi. Com isso, o Governo do país consegue localizar um dispositivo geograficamente.

Criado em 2013, o software se chama ELSA e ele usa o banco de dados de localização de redes públicas da Microsoft e do Google. Primeiramente, o programa inclui um tipo de malware no dispositivo espionado, que, assim que instalado, começa a escanear e coletas metadados de redes Wi-Fi que estiverem próximas. Mesmo que as máquinas não estejam conectadas à internet, caso estejam com o Wi-Fi habilitado já podem ser rastreadas pela agência.

De acordo com as análises, o malware foi desenvolvido para Windows 7, mas também é capaz de funcionar no Windows 10. Contudo, não se sabe se a CIA ainda o utiliza para rastrear máquinas por aí, ou se já estaria contando com técnicas mais modernas de espionagem, secretamente.

          How to Build a Robo Advisor: Advice for Starting a Robo Advisory   

MyPrivateBanking Robo AdvisorWith the tremendous growth in robo advisor assets under management (AUM), financial institutions are scrambling to figure out how to build and become a robo advisor.

Starting a robo advisor service combines financially savvy with big data analytics, as well as a comprehensive understanding to how robo advisors work.

How Do Robo Advisors Work?

Robo advisors are platforms that leverage algorithms to handle users' investment platforms. These services analyze each customer's current financial status, risk aversion, and goals. From here, they recommend the best portfolio of stocks available based on that data.

And these automated financial services are poised to transform the tremendous worldwide wealth management industry. 

MyPrivateBanking's report, Robo Advisor 3.0, takes an in-depth look at the basic challenge of every robo advisor: how to craft a presence that succeeds in convincing website visitors to sign up as investors and then remain on board.

In this data-driven assessment, the report looks at the characteristics, business models, and strengths and weaknesses of the top robo advisors around the world. The research was conducted on a total of 76 active robo advisors worldwide - 29 in the U.S. and Canada, 38 in seven European countries and nine in the Asia-Pacific region. We've compiled a full list of robo advisors analyzed below.

The exhaustive report provides comprehensive answers and data on how to optimize the individual onboarding stages (How it works, Client Assessment, Client Onboarding, Communication and Portfolio Reporting) and details five best practices for each stage. Furthermore, the report provides strategies to appeal to different segments such as Millennials, baby boomer investors approaching retirement, and high net worth individuals (HNWIs), and analyzes the impact of new technologies.

The report provides comprehensive analysis and data-driven insights on how to utilize robo advisors to win and keep clients:

  • What a robo advisor platform should offer to successfully convert prospects into happy clients.
  • Which robo advisor features work and why.
  • What are best practices for the different stages in the digital customer journey.
  • How long clients need to onboard on the surveyed robo advisors and which specialized offers are given.
  • What the client assessment process should include 
  • How client communication should be (inbound for customer service and outbound for news, education and commentary).
  • What good portfolio reporting looks like, so that it meets the information needs of the customer.
  • How B2B providers are positioned in the development of robo advisory services and what they offer.
  • How robo advisors should adopt their strategies to appeal to different segments such as Millennials, baby boomer investors approaching retirement, and high net worth individuals (HNWIs).
  • Which robo advisors provide specialized options such as micro-investing, rewards schemes or hedging strategies, and in what manner.
  • What the impacts of new technologies are, such as the use of artificial intelligence for client interaction and narrative generation on the robo advisor model.
  • How the future of digital success will look for robo advisors.
  • Appendix containing data on the web presences of more than 70 robo advisors alongside the digital customer journey process.
  • And much more.

NOW WATCH: Warren Buffett lives in a modest house that's worth .001% of his total wealth — here's what it looks like


          Warren Buffett is now the largest owner of 2 of the world's biggest banks (BAC, JPM, WFC, GS)   

warren buffett

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is now the biggest owner of two of the world's largest banks: Bank of America and Wells Fargo.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve cleared the way for Buffett to become Bank of America's largest shareholder.

It passed all the big banks on their so-called stress tests, giving them permission to use their capital for things beyond buffering against disaster, including share buybacks and dividend payments.

Bank of America raised its dividend to $0.12 a common share.

That made it compelling for Berkshire to convert its preferred shares into common stock, giving it shareholder ownership, and earning as much as $12 billion in profit. Berkshire announced on Friday that it would exercise its warrants to buy 700 million common shares of Bank of America, the third-largest US bank by market cap, instead of waiting until just before their expiry in 2021.

In a statement, the bank said it welcomed Buffett's decision.

With $2.19 trillion in assets, Bank of America ranked ninth in the world, according to an S&P Global Market Intelligence ranking released in April.

Buffett's initial investment in the bank dating back to 2011 was a thumbs-up of sorts to CEO Brian Moynihan, who had recently taken the helm. It was also a bet that the bank would recover from the fallout of toxic mortgage securities.

He acquired $5 billion of Bank of America preferred stock with a 6% dividend, or $300 million annually, in August 2011, at a time when investors worried about the bank's capital needs, Reuters reported.

The conglomerate said last July that it owned more than 10% of Wells Fargo, which on Friday amounted to nearly 537 million shares, according to Bloomberg. It's the second-largest bank in the US by market capitalization and was the 10th largest in the world by assets, according to S&P.

Berkshire Hathaway also owns smaller stakes in Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan.

          Credit cards are going the way of fax machines

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The modern smartphone is a remarkable device. A single device that fits in your pocket can do all the tasks that once required cameras, camcorders, GPS devices, watches, alarm clocks, calculators, and even TVs.    

But the next change might be the most radical of all—it could eliminate the need to carry cash and credit cards. 

The growing importance of the smartphone as the go-to computing device for every digital activity is having a profound effect everywhere you look, but it’s only the biggest story among many exciting developments in the world of payments:   

  • Apple Pay was first out of the gate, but now mobile wallets are everywhere you look—Android Pay, Google Pay, Chase Pay and even Walmart Pay are making smartphones a real alternative to carrying credit cards. And the potential for mobile wallets to limit a merchant’s fraud liability could help them really take off in acceptance for small businesses.   
  • As consumers move more purchasing online, gateway vendors that can act as a front-end processor for online businesses are seeing explosive growth.   PayPal-owned Braintree grew 111% YoY in the number of cards on file in Q4 2015, while Stripe and Klarna now have multi-billion dollar valuations.
  • Mobile Point-Of-Sale (mPOS) startups like Square and ShopKeep have pioneered a whole new payments niche—accepting payments via tablets and smartphones.   Coupling their transactions capabilities with new apps can revolutionize a small business’ inventory management, marketing, loyalty and even payroll.   
  • Mobile Peer-to-Peer payments in the U.S. are forecast to grow from $5.6 billion in 2014 to nearly $175 billion by 2019 as consumers increasingly skip the hassle of writing a check or going to an ATM.   But smartphone vendors like Apple could cripple the dominant player of 2016 (Venmo) if they make a serious push to own the space.   

If your job or your company is involved in payment processing in any way, you know how complex this industry is. And you know that you simply can’t understand where the next big digital opportunities are unless you know the key players and roles in each step of the payments “supply chain:”   

  • Acquirers
  • Processors
  • Issuers
  • Card Networks
  • Independent sales organizations and merchant service providers
  • Gateways
  • Hardware and software providers

Fortunately, managing analyst John Heggestuen and research analyst Evan Bakker of BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, have compiled a detailed report that breaks down everything you need to know—whether you’re a payments industry veteran or a newcomer who is still getting a basic knowledge of this complex world.

  • The 5 key events of 2015 that have set up 2016 as a watershed year for the entire payments ecosystem. 
  • The basics of traditional card processing from the start of the process through to the very end.    
  • Why new players and innovations like prepaid cards, store cards, and PIN debit transactions are gaining market share and creating new opportunities.   
  • The effects—good and bad—of the transition to new mobile payment methods.   New players and old have surprising threats and opportunities in areas as varied as carrier billing, remittances, wearables, and more.

Los hechos que se le imputan a este individuo, se registraron el pasado 20 de mayo, en el municipio de Zinacantepec, donde fue privada de la libertad la víctima, y posteriormente fue trasladada a un domicilio de la zona en donde la mantuvieron cautiva; posteriormente familiares del joven recibieron llamadas mediante las cuales les exigieron un pago a cambio de liberarlo.

Cabe mencionar que el 1 de junio, fue localizado el cuerpo de la víctima, en una casa en construcción localizada en la colonia La Deportiva, del municipio de Zinacantepec.

Por estos hechos, Agentes de Investigación se encargaron de realizar diversas indagatorias y con la información recabada, el Ministerio Público solicitó a un Juez librar una orden de aprehensión en contra de Rubén “N”, la cual fue otorgada y cumplimentada.

A este sujeto se le presume inocente hasta sea dictada una sentencia condenatoria en su contra.

          PGR compró software de espionaje por 32 millones de dólares, revela contrato   
Software

El noticiero En Punto, de Televisa, dio a conocer esta noche una copia del contrato de compra mediante el cual la Procuraduría General de la República pagó 32 millones 16 mil dólares a la empresa mexicana Grupo Tech Bull por el programa NSO Pegasus, que de acuerdo con el diario New York Times, fue usado para espiar a periodistas, defensores de derechos humanos y activistas.

De acuerdo con el documento, la PGR firmó el contrato el 29 de octubre de 2014, mediante el cual compró 500 objetivos del programa y los empezó a utilizar a finales de 2015.

El contrato está firmado por el entonces director de la Agencia de Investigación Criminal (AIC), Tomás Zerón de Lucio, y por el apoderado del Grupo Tech Bull, Luis Armado Pérez Herrero.

Cabe destacar que de acuerdo con la empresa israelí NSO Group, creadora de Pegasus, por la naturaleza del programa, sólo realiza ventas directas a gobiernos y sin intermediarios.
[post_ad]
El pasado 19 de junio el periódico estadounidense The New York Times reveló que el gobierno mexicano había adquirido un software para investigar a criminales y terroristas, pero que se habría usado para espiar a periodistas y a activistas anticorrupción, quienes hicieron la denuncia correspondiente.

Según información del contrato, Pegasus funciona a través de un software malicioso que envía un mensaje o un link a correos electrónicos y teléfonos celulares, que al abrirlo da acceso a la información del equipo de la persona infectada.

Computadoras

De esta manera, quien opera Pegasus puede acceder a mensajes de texto, fotografías, contactos, corremos electrónicos, historial de llamadas telefónicas, historial de navegación en internet y redes sociales, ubicación, capturas de pantalla y grabaciones de la persona que está siendo espiada.

La empresa proveedora del servicio es el Grupo Tech Bull S.A. de C.V., fundada el 10 de octubre de 2013. 

De acuerdo con información pública de la PGR, el Grupo Tech Bull es una compañía mexicana que vende inteligencia y seguridad al Gobierno de este país. Además describe que es una subsidiaria de una compañía llamada Balam Seguridad Privada S.A. de C.V., donde también trabaja Luis Armado Pérez Herrero, quien firma el contrato con la PGR.

El pasado 26 de junio la PGR informó que solicitó ayuda del FBI para investigar el caso de los periodistas y activistas que fueron espiados, además las víctimas tendrán que entregar sus equipos a la PGR.

          Meretrice   


A Lola P. Nievala descubrí con  Esclavo de tus deseos” y su ironía sobre la vida, me conquistó con el aullido del lobo en “Los tres nombres del lobo” y “Tras las huellas del lobo” y después me mostró la esperanza con “Bruma azul”, hoy regresa a nuestras manos para presentarnos Meretrice, una obra que os dejará sin respiración.

Esta novela encierra en sí la clave del amor verdadero, de aquel que con una sola vida no es suficiente y que parece estar condenado por el destino y las malas artes de los demás, sin olvidar la fortaleza frente al infortunio y a la venganza gestada en el tiempo que sabe dulce al lector en su momento.

Está historia nos la muestran dos voces femeninas en dos tiempos distantes pero que están unidas no solo por la sangre sino por el alma, dos destinos marcados por el destino y su capricho.

Alonza era una joven del siglo XVI que vivía en una Venecia azotada por la peste, tras perder a toda su familia pasa a ser tutelada por un buen amigo de su padre que contaba ya con tres hijos, Marco y Caterina, dos malo bichos y Lanzo, un joven inteligente quien le entregó su corazón con solo verla. Su amor parece prohibido a los ojos de todos, hecho que les llevará a una trágica relación convulsa que se forjará a fuego en sus corazones aunque sus cuerpos ya no les pertenezcan, dado que cada uno buscará su libertad.

Alessia es una joven de nuestros días que en su herencia ha recibido un diario escrito por Alonza, una meretrice veneciana que esconde un tesoro entre sus páginas, frente a una vida gris y apagada, decide ir en busca del tesoro a la vez que se encamina en la búsqueda de su propio pasado y futuro.

Alessia encontrará en Luca un ayudante fiel, un compañero de viaje sincero que sabe más de lo que dice y que despierta en ella sentimientos que no creía poder volver a sentir, es como si junto a él pudiera volver a respirar.

El pasado de Alonza regresará para ponerles las cosas difíciles a Alessia y Luca, aunque la venganza que se cierne sobre ellos tiene una magnitud inesperada por su cercanía y que será revelada el momento preciso.

Con una prosa fluida, rica en detalles tanto en una época como en la otra, cosa que remarca una gran investigación que se esconde tras un trabajo minucioso sobre la Venecia del siglo XVI y el papel de la mujer en él. Con unos personajes tan bien construidos, la autora nos invita a sentir no solo empatía por nuestras fuertes protagonistas, sino a odiar a otros y a sentir y vibrar con un amor puro entre dos almas.

Seguiremos junto a ellos dos vidas distintas, una ayudará a forjar la de la siguiente guiándola con sus acertijos y encriptaciones a descubrir el verdadero tesoro de sus vida.

Decir que Ediciones Martínez Roca nos presenta una lectura adictiva, inteligente, profunda, irónica, psicológica y muy bien hilvanada es quedarse corta, la autora mantiene el nivel de su prosa de las novelas anteriores, aunque me atrevería a decir que consigue más profundidad en sus personajes, sobre todo en aquellos secundarios que dan solidez a la trama.

Espero no haber revelado nada sustancial, he medido mis palabras pero mi mente iba en otra dirección, así que lo mejor será que os deje sus primeras páginas aunque si sois débiles de voluntad, esperad a leer la novela en vuestras manos, ya que no podréis dejarla ir.

Yo la he terminado y creo que el espíritu combativo de Alonza y la inteligencia de Alessia me acompañaran bajo la piel.




          Can't accept apology from Delhi Golf Club, says victim   

Shillong, July 2 (IANS) Tailin Lyngdoh, the tribal Khasi woman, who was subjected to discrimination at the Delhi Golf Club for wearing her traditional dress, on Saturday said that the she cannot reconcile with those who broke her heart.

"I will never accept any apology as I was deeply hurt by the manner in which I was insulted and discriminated against. I would also never set foot in the Club ever again," Lyngdoh told journalists.

"If you try and fix a broken glass, you won't be able to hide the cracks of the glass. Therefore, it will be difficult for me to accept any apology from them now," she stated.

On June 25, Lyngdoh, a governess, had gone to the Club, along with her employer Nivedita Barthakur, after they were invited for lunch by a Club member.

Some 15-20 minutes into the lunch, two Club officials asked Lyngdoh to leave the table and the Club, saying her dress was a "maid's uniform" and also allegedly hurled racial abuses.

Lyngdoh, who finally reached Shillong, the state capital of Meghalaya, Saturday afternoon, met and shared with the members of Meghalaya State Women's Commission and women's rights activists on the unfortunate incident at the elitist golf club for wearing a Jainsem.

"I felt hurt and insulted when I was discriminated against at the Club, which is in my own homeland. I have been to many clubs and restaurants abroad but no has ever insulted me," Lyngdoh, who with her employer Nivedita Barthakur, said.

"I want the Meghalaya government and civil society groups and my fellow tribesmen to come forward in taking up the incident which happened at the Club, so that no such discrimination is meted out to anyone in the future," she said.

Meanwhile, Barthakur appealed to the people across the northeastern states to come out in support of Lyngdoh.

"This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. These things keep happening. Therefore, I am appealing to the people of the Northeast to stand up together.

"Here is a lady who was humiliated for her profession, for the way she looks and for the way she dressed. Let us not just make it into Tailin's voice alone. It should be the voice of everyone. Enough is enough," Barthakur said.

On her meeting with the women's commission Chairperson, she said: "I am convinced that they are with us and will take proactive action. We are going back with hope."

Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, who had raised the issue with Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, said such discrimination needs to be condemned by one and all.

He had also urged the central government to direct Delhi Police to file a suo motu case against the Delhi Golf Club for the racial abuse.

"All legal options available as per the Scheduled Tribe Prevention of Atrocities Act 1989 and more will be taken advantage of, so that such behaviour is not repeated," Sangma said.

The Meghalaya State Women's Commission, which held a meeting with prominent women's organisations, has unanimously condemned the "despicable act of discrimination and racism" and lack of grace on the part of the management of the Club.

"The comments made by the management on the attire of Lyngdoh has gravely insulted and hurt the sentiments of Khasis (a tribal community in Meghalaya). Further, the comments made violated the social and cultural rights of Lyngdoh," commission's Chairperson, Theilin Phanbuh said.

In a Khasi society which is egalitarian, all Khasi women would wear the Jainsem, which was the traditional attire of the Khasis and the same was worn by the Khasis in India and abroad, she said.

"It (Jainsem) represents the identity of a woman who wears it every day and it is the most modest, dignified, graceful, versatile and elegant attire. India is a land of unity in the midst of diversity and as such, it is unfortunate that the management of the Club cannot make a distinction between a traditional Indian attire and that of a neighboring country," Phanbuh said.

The Jainsem has been showcased in many fashion shows, including the Lakme Fashion Week as well as the London Fashion Week, World Intellectual Property Organisation and many others.

"It is unfortunate that the world is aware and appreciates the Jainsem whereas our Indian brethren are ignorant of the same," Phanbuh said.

          Google Penguin Recovery Tips by Barry Schwartz and Others and My 2 Cents   

Compiling all the suggestions presented by experts in last few days, Barry Schwartz   wrote some of his tips for recovery for the recent Penguin Update by Google. This blog post an elaboration of the tips he place of his blog.

The Penguin Penalty Update was made to attack bad sites and level the gaming field for web spams. This is not actually another version of Panda Update. Because Panda is not actually a spam filter, it is rather a priority inbox :-) i.e. Panda was introduced to like better contents, not hate bad contents.

Google Penguin Recovery Tips by Barry Schwartz and My 2 Cents

Image Courtesy: Dave Naylor

Let me start by describing some of the tips by Barry.

De-Optimize the Web Site

Just put only 8 (max 10) keywords in Meta Tags. Google has mentioned several times that they don’t use Meta Keywords for ranking. But, after the Penguine update, they are saying that they are now using it to hunt you down. So, it is about time you stopped stuffing your keyword meta tags with keywords.

I usually tell people to optimize site for only one keyword. And use multiple deeper pages for longer tail keywords or keyword variations. But, it is ok to optimize a page for 3 keywords. I know, I said 5 keywords few years back. But, things are getting pretty competitive, now-a-days.

I know many people that are still obsessed with keyword density. If you still are, then you are still in old school. Reanalyze your keyword density and try to reduce the keyword density of any page, if it is more than 5%. But, 2012 is the year of thick contents. i.e. quality 500+ words articles perform better than others. So, you can guess that even 5% would be more. Usually try to keep the keyword mentions right, i.e. not more than 5 times in the page. Do not manually or automatically count the keyword density percentage.

Try avoiding keyword stuffing in Page Titles. It is actually useless. Doing such things are also over optimization. Page Title is the major place to put your important keywords. But, the keywords that are available at the end, have no power. The influence is algorithmically discarded, but since Google is punishing you to have keyword stuffing in meta data, it can also be true for keyword stuffing in page titles as well.

Another place for keyword stuffing are the URLs. For Search Engine Friendly (SEF) URLs, make sure they are also not stuffed with keywords. So, de-optimizing your site is more about re-optimizing your site so that keyword stuffing is taken down to a tolerable and natural level.

According to the article by Google on the Penguin Update, there are really some hints about what you should do for de-optimizing your site. Other than Keyword Stuffing, Google also mentions other aspects that they are also looking into:

Outgoing links are completely unrelated

This means that you should be careful in what anchor text you use and which site you link to. I don’t think that the anchor text is much of a problem, but try to link to relevant site from your article. Even LSI keywords are also relevant. Try to link to the sites that talk about relevant stiffs.

Page text has been “spun” beyond recognition

I searched for the keyword “spin”, “spinning”, and “spun”. Looks like Google Inside Search Blog has mentioned the overly popular term Content Spinning for the first time. Though some are based on guesstimation, but see this old video from SENuke to understand the level of intelligence that Google uses for identifying near duplicate and spun contents.

Increase Quality Links to Pages

I get many questions from people asking me what is quality links. Well, this should not be answered from the perspective of an SEO professional, rather from the perspective of Google. A Quality Link is voluntary in nature and is provided naturally (or organically) to your site from relevant pages. A Quality Link is always a free and enthusiastic link and not influenced by money or any other benefit.

If you have been doing link building from high PR but irrelevant pages just to increase the Page Rank, then you might be a Prime Prey for Penguin Penalty. It is pretty easy to suggest you to remove the bad quality links, but I know how hard it is. If you have already purchased links, try to find highly relevant pages on their site and try to get links from those relevant pages. If you are out of luck in finding relevant links, then propose them to create some relevant pages and have them linked from their high PR pages and get a level deep link, but from highly relevant one.

In future, make quality contents, so that they are either newsworthy or share-worthy. Actually social media marketing plays a great role in having your contents found now-a-days. And getting mentions is secondary. e.g. I found Barry’s article in Facebook and now giving link love to his blog with very relevant page title. I am not boasting, but this is indeed a quality link to Barry’s article.

You can also try to use link baiting technique on related topics to your business. e.g. if you sell Diamond Rings, you can start celebrity gossips around Diamond Rings. Or talk about most controversial story in your industry. Another good way to get quality links is by providing  a news faster than CNN, BBC, Reuters. The first provider of a breaking news always gets link love.

Make Sure Link Anchor Text is More Natural

Anchor text has been the driving force in passing relevance to a site. But, in recent years, exact match keywords in Anchor Text is thought to be manipulative. If you evaluate the anchor texts of voluntary links, then you might find that most of them are not using exact match keywords. So, it is high time to alternate your anchor texts from backlinks.

Those who were complaining about Penguin Penalty, most of them were complaining that the sites that were targeting less than 5 keywords were affected in some way. But, those who targeted more than 10 keywords, were in sound health. This is also an indication that anchor text alteration is crucial now.

It is ok to have exact match keywords in anchor text. But, try not to make it wide spread. It looks very much manipulative in the eye of Google. Always try to get links from relevant pages and don’t care about what your anchor texts says. Google also recently announced that they have turned off some classifier for anchor texts. Not sure which particular classifier they were talking about. But, you can help yourself in making the anchor texts look pretty natural.

Actually, Google Webmaster Tool does has this insight here (change yoursite.com with your site). If your anchor texts are natural, you should see varied keywords and many anchor texts listed in Google Webmaster. So, if you see limited number of anchor texts, then you have something to worry about.

Remove Links from Blogrolls

Actually the suggestion should be: Avoid Sitewide Links. Site-wide links does pass some page rank but in most cases, it may also link to you from irrelevant pages, which does not help you in ranking. In recent Penguin Penalty, sites having sidewide links have been affected. Sitewide links are actually indicative of link purchase.

Try to avoid getting sitewide links from other sites, unless the site has all article or contents related to the keywords you are targeting. However, for natural looking linking, always try to get links to deeper pages, instead of the homepage. If you are using topical satellite blog or topical spokes in link wheel, try to link to deeper pages as much as possible. By topical, I mean having separate blogs in specific topic, not diverse topics and building it as micro-authority in a relevant niche. 

If you are selling links from Blogrolls, then Google also tells you to use rel Nofollow tags on links. It is also a good idea to nofollow link to your homepage from spokes as well. But, favor only the deeper links.

Scale Back the Internal Link Anchor Text

Not sure what exactly Barry wanted to mean by this. But, in most cases, keywords in anchor text plays a great role in passing relevance to deeper pages. That’s why for sites in flash, footer links with relevant anchor texts plays a great role in making Google find the most relevant page for your keyword. However, there are people that over do it and try to get as many links possible without considering Content Siloing. Content Siloing through anchor texts in now more effective than just random internal links.

Exact Match Domains Hurt

In Penguin Penalty, many exact match domains have seen less traffic. Exact match domains have been a part of the manipulation process. But, I personally don’t think that Google would be hurting your site if you have built a good brand and authority around your keyword. If you don’t have a good brand or authority, then there is reason to make Google believe that you are manipulating Google. So, to get out of the penalty, you should build a good brand as well as authority around your site.

After the Penguin Update, I really don’t think, exact match domain are NO (totally zero value). There is still some value in it. It is just that, sites that does not have much authority, should not get the Google love for having exact match keyword name of the domain.

Practice Negative SEO

Recently, Google has sent mails to many webmasters through Google Webmaster that they have suspicious backlinks for their sites. This has led to the idea that you can make a site look suspicious in the eye of Google. May not be a good one, but this is also another idea to make your way to the top by hurting other competitors.

But, personally I think you would be wasting your time. Because, Google has been working with Google Bowling for long time. Google Bowling is the term where Google discards any back link influence, i.e. they become nofollow even if they are dofollow. Moreover, Bruce Clay in SEO FB Group suggested a nice option in Google Webmaster:

I am hopeful that there will be a WMT disavow option soon so that recipients can essentially “nofollow” a link from the receiving end.

And with the Penguin Update and the negative SEO fear, I also think Google should be serious about Google Bowling and you might see similar feature in Google Webmaster soon. So, all the time you spend on negative SEO will be waste of time.

Move Content to a New Domain

Well, I don’t think you need to do that. Actually, sub-domains are also ok for doing this. Google treat each subdomains as separate sites. And that’s how you see WordPress and Blogspot blogs multiple times in SERPs. But, this might also deprive you from age scores. I’d suggest you to build your site as authority. If you are determined, then fight it, not quite it. 

Build a Smaller Site with Very Few Pages

Not a good one and I really don’t support it as an option. Sites with fewer pages rose in rankings as other heavily optimized sites’ ranking dropped. But, sites with good authority still are standing strong. Having fewer pages does not help you grow authority. Moreover, it is like doing nothing for your site. Serious businesses prefer having more and more contents. That is how they reign by becoming authority in their industry.

Write Better Content

This is perhaps the most important piece of suggestion for both Panda and Penguin update. The better the content you have, the more the probability that others in the same industry will prefer you above your competitors. That will also help you build natural links.

Add More Social Elements, i.e. Google+ Sharing

Social SEO is real guys. You can not deny it. Many webmasters are running after only dofollow links. But, Social SEO made nofollow links worthwhile. And having only dofollow links also looks suspicious. But, to make proper balance of both nofollow and dofollow links, enabling social sharing is a good way.

Search Plus Your World was not only meant to make searches more meaning, but also to convert Google from a search engine to recomendation engine. If you asked someone, what is better than a search engine, then the obvious answer would be a freind or trusted person who knows about the keyword I am searching for. And Google always wanted to be that recommendation engine. And Google+ was not just meant for a social media, it has much wider purpose.

Social Signals from Facebook and Twitter is also important. Banded3 did a nice research and found that twitter mentions has great influence in rankings. If you are looking into the marketing in future, you should also invest much time in Social Media Marketing.

Site Audit to Determine Problem Areas

Whenever a new algorithm update happens, this is the first thing you should do. In perspective of the Penguin Update, the audits you should do are:

  • Various diagnostic reports in Google Webmaster Tools
  • Traffic analysis in your major web analytics app (Google Analytics)
  • Keyword ranking analysis for your important keywords
  • Competitor ranking and search engine performance analysis
  • Backlink popularity and quality analysis

Think More Long Term, Stop Taking Shortcuts

This has always been the last suggestion for every algorithm update. And Shortcuts were never an option in White Hat SEO. Every shortcuts are actually manipulating Google and Matt Cutts is also simultaneously taking actions against such short cuts.

Long term thinking also helps you to reduce the loss of effort you spent on your site. Moreover, the effort you put into the site steadily becomes an asset. Otherwise, the spammy links you made through money and effort are now a disposable expenses.

If I talk something about the future of SEO, then my opinion is that: SEO can not be done by agencies anymore in future. Though, it is still possible through agencies. But, people will need to build inhouse SEO team that understand the business well. SEO Agencies in recent times, need to have training centers or resources to train companies to market themselves. Or they can build specialization in specific areas. I already see this happening, because you can find Real Estate SEOs, Celebrity SEOs, Mortgage SEOs, etc. and in future you might see more product or service SEO specialization.

Moreover, Google is steadily transferring the power of SEO to individual level. I predicted this shift long ago in May of 2008 on my blog 13 Prophecies of Internet Marketing on Marketing Pilgrim (Prophecy #10: Personal Power to Influence Purchase will Increase). Some of the indications are shifting power of influence from forum to blogs, search plus your world, social signals, etc. Moreover, I strongly support AJ Kohn that Google will bring AuthorRank soon, which will revolutionize SEO to the next level and SEO will be more person oriented than website oriented.

So, it is not sites that can make another site rank well in future, it’ll be individuals or group of relevant individuals that can help a site or business rank well in search engines. So, SEOs in future will be great marketers like Oprah who’s endorsement is worth millions of dollars.

Additional Penguin Recovery Tips

Penguin has hit sites that were doing much spamming and building low quality links. While Panda hit mainly onpage factors, Penguin has targeted offpage factors. Many people already have mentioned some nice tips to recover from it. Some are:

Link Pruning

The term Link Pruning was initially invented by Bruce Clay, which is really the opposite of link building. It is the process to keep quality backlinks and delete the bad ones. The best tool that can give the the insight for quality links is Majestic SEO’s ACRank (replace yoursite.com with your site). See the video below to understand more about Link Pruning and also read the blog on Stone Temple. 

Create Microsites or Micro-Authorities

In a recent post in Microsite Masters, they have suggested using Microsites. Initially this has been a greyhat technique. But, personally I think that it can be a good option to Silo Contents from external sites.

I think microsite does not need to be outside your domain. it can be in subdomain. Specially after panda, subdomains have been good way to Silo Contents. If you target and promote keywords and services like: Web Design, Graphic Design, Web Development, etc. then you can use External Authority Content Siloing for each keyword. External Authority Content Siloing from authority sites will help you to become bigger authority. But, for that you need to create separate authorities. 

For commercial sites, there is really not much engagement. Rather, you can start the engagements on external educational and news sites or subdomain. I really don’t support having 20-50 blog for Graphic Design only. Just create one blog which you create as an authority (which is not really that easy). And another blog for Web Development and try promoting deeper pages of the bigger authority site instead of homepage. 

Affiliate Marketers actually do that for you and it is already happening. Large companies are already doing it. But, their microsites are really not that micro. The philosophy here would be External Authority Content Siloing and I think since Microsite has less reputation, “External Authority Content Siloing” would be the best word that I am trying to support.

Again, if I support that future of SEO will be more people oriented than website oriented, then if you can create a strong supporter for your domain from external domains, you can stay at top in future as well. So, try not to create crappy microsites, just create a strong supporter for you.

Guest Blogging

Guest Blogging is actually not a new concept. It has been around for long time, as Ann Smarty has been supporting it for long time. And when I am speaking about AuthorRank, guest blogging will be more prominent in future. Since you really can increase your AuthorRank even by blogging on other sites.

It’s pretty hard to get quality links. Again it is also hard for people to get quality contents for their blogs. This is the phenomenon where synergies can happen. While other blogs are looking for quality contents, you can jump in to provide that, even by buying quality articles. That’s why in recent future, I think the SEO industry will be seeking for quality contents than backlinks.

Update: In recent discussion between Matt Cutts and Danny Sullivan at SMX Seattle, Matt Cutts revealed that Google is coming up with new feature in Google Webmaster that will help Webmasters to disavow some bad links, which will eventually turn a dofollow link into nofollow. This mean that the suggestion for such feature by Bruce Clay in SEOFB Group is finally seeing life. And this will help webmasters to fight negative SEO better and also make link pruning more effective and easy. Here is the exact word for the news:

He also mentioned — and this will be good news to many search marketers — that Google is considering offering a tool that allows web masters to disavow certain links, but that may be months away if it happens.

Google Penguin update is relatively new. The update went live at April 24, 2012 and this article was written a week later. So, most of the suggestions based on best guess and some of the strategies have not yet been tested.

          Is SEO Expenditure an Expense or Asset? Or Does SEO Cost influence Profitability?   

Your website is your intellectual real estate. Even though, you bear annual variable cost of maintaining the site, the cost never can be labeled as expense. After finishing your site, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Pay Per Click (PPC) to market your site, are they expense or adding value to your website? Let’s start with some definition:

Expense in terms of asset: The portion of the asset given away as variable cost for specific utility that has no reusability and to get the same utility, you have to pay again. e.g. advertising cost.

Asset in terms of expenditure: The expenditure invested as fixed cost for specific utility that has reusability. So with the investment, you get the same utility for a certain period of time. Please note that all assets are perishable, except for real estates. e.g. your computer is an asset not expenditure, but if you rent it, then it is expense.

Is SEO Expenditure an Expense or Asset? Or Does SEO Cost influence Profitability?

The accounting formula

Asset = Liability + Equity

i.e. Equity = Asset - Liability

In another analogy, Profitability = Capital – Expense

According to this formula, you can get more profit by decreasing expenditure or increasing capital. So, the more you add value to Capital, the more the profitability, even if you have to spend some expense to increase it. e.g. when you buy an asset, it does not get accounted into expense, rather into Asset or Capital.

Now, in terms of gaining profitability, how should the expenditure on SEO be labeled? As “Capital” or “Expense”? If it is a Capital Investment, then it will increase profitability, otherwise if expense, it will decrease your profitability.

Now, investment in SEO an expense or asset? 

In cost type analogy Profit = Fixed Asset - Variable Expense

Remember that cost on capital is fixed in nature, but expense can be variable. In that sense, PPC is an expenditure for your marketing. It is instantly perishable and each time you have to buy advertisement to get customers to your site. PPC is also a variable cost. So, this affects the expense, not the asset.

But, SEO is not like that. Because, it is not intended for short term marketing. SEO has reusability and brings you customers even after the SEO is finished. SEO expenditure has no attribute to be labeled as variable cost. Once you have done SEO on your site, you have added more value to your site, which in turn can have resale value. It’s not just $10 site anymore (the dollar amount you used for purchasing the domain).

So, SEO expense is a capital expenditure which increases your asset and should never be treated as expense that makes your site a marketing machine. 

Does SEO Cost influence Profitability?

We have tried to convince some customers that SEO doesn’t affect your profitability. Because, it becomes your asset. And asset is not expenditure that would negatively influence your profitability. The perishable behavior of SEO, may make it seem like expense. But, all assets are perishable. And we own a lot of short timed assets. So, if SEO expenditure is an asset, then you are increasing investment, not giving away money.

Can Advertising Convert into Asset?

Goodwill is something that has economic value. So, it is an asset. And achieving this involves much cost on marketing and advertising. Without marketing and advertising good will never can be achieved. If you consider long term affects, then advertising can also be converted into assets.

So, the next time you spend money on SEO and advertisement (for good will) in an effective way, don’t worry about the profitability of your company, brand or site.

          North Dakota Drone Effort Lauded at White House Workshop   
Accomplishments made with unmanned aircraft systems in North Dakota were recognized recently during a workshop hosted on the White House campus.

The “Workshop on Drones and the Future of Aviation” assembled leaders from areas of industry, academia and government to outline the future of integrating unmanned aircraft, also known as drones, into the national airspace and discuss necessary policies to ensure that happens, according to a news release.

“Recognizing the fact that North Dakota as a test site is helping to pave the way for regulations really solidifies the reason why it was important that we were there,” said Nicholas Flom, director of safety for the Northern Plains UAS Test Site, who attended the workshop.

The North Dakota test site is one of six designated by the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct research into drones’ airspace integration.

The test site received recognition for requesting permission to fly drones beyond the line of visual sight at the Grand Sky business park on Grand Forks Air Force Base.

The test site is seeking to fly the aircraft up to 29,000 feet above ground without the use of a chase planes. These planes are tasked with tailing a drone during flights beyond the sight of the drone’s pilot, which is otherwise prohibited.

Another effort highlighted was the test site’s success in securing a block of spectrum from the Federal Communications Commission for transmitting commands and data during drone flights. Accessing spectrum an increasingly challenging feat nationwide, Flom said.

“Spectrum is not readily available throughout the country,” he said. “One of the things they were discussing was airspace might be a challenge to get, but what we’re finding is dedicated spectrum is even more difficult.”

Spectrum will play a large role in beyond-line-of-sight commercial drone flights, which could utilize secure transmission bands for their control systems.

Flying beyond the line of visual sight — along with accompanying sense and avoid technology — is considered by many in the industry as the next significant step needed to fully integrate commercial drones into the national airspace.

“Safely integrating drones into our airspace is one of the FAA’s top priorities, and we’re determined to get it right,” Michael Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, told the workshop crowd. “It’s essential for our economy and our role as a global aviation leader.”

Also speaking were representatives from the U.S. Department of the Interior, Intel, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Edison Electric Institute.

The Edison Electric Institute, which represents all U.S. investor-owned electric companies, highlighted its work with Sharper Shape, an aerial inspection company with a research office in North Dakota.

Sharper Shape and EEI announced a partnership in March that will work to develop capabilities for beyond-line-of-sight flights for electrical companies to use to inspect infrastructure. Part of that will include seeking approval to bring a beyond-line-of-sight demonstration to the FAA.

“That was a great plug for a North Dakota company doing great things,” Flom said.

The workshop was co-host by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Foundation.

          Global and Local Connectivity Differences Converge With Gene Expression in a Neurodevelopmental Disorder of Known Genetic Origin   
Abstract
Knowledge of genetic cause in neurodevelopmental disorders can highlight molecular and cellular processes critical for typical development. Furthermore, the relative homogeneity of neurodevelopmental disorders of known genetic origin allows the researcher to establish the subsequent neurobiological processes that mediate cognitive and behavioral outcomes. The current study investigated white matter structural connectivity in a group of individuals with intellectual disability due to mutations in ZDHHC9. In addition to shared cause of cognitive impairment, these individuals have a shared cognitive profile, involving oromotor control difficulties and expressive language impairment. Analysis of structural network properties using graph theory measures showed global reductions in mean clustering coefficient and efficiency in the ZDHHC9 group, with maximal differences in frontal and parietal areas. Regional variation in clustering coefficient across cortical regions in ZDHHC9 mutation cases was significantly associated with known pattern of expression of ZDHHC9 in the normal adult human brain. The results demonstrate that a mutation in a single gene impacts upon white matter organization across the whole-brain, but also shows regionally specific effects, according to variation in gene expression. Furthermore, these regionally specific patterns may link to specific developmental mechanisms, and correspond to specific cognitive deficits.

          Dalrymple Highlights State's Economic Strength, Opportunities   
By ND Governor's Office
Gov. Jack Dalrymple kicked off the first annual Demographics Conference in Bismarck today by highlighting North Dakota’s economic strength and how the state’s diversified economy is helping to weather fluctuations in the energy and agriculture industries.
 
The focus of the conference was to help participants understand important socio-economic and demographic trends in North Dakota and how those trends impact citizens, businesses and communities. The inaugural event was a collaborative effort between the North Dakota Department of Commerce, the North Dakota Compass at North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota Department of Economics, and was held at the
National Energy Center of Excellence on the Bismarck State College campus.
 
“For more than a decade, we have worked hard and strategically to diversify our economy and expand our target industries and those efforts have produced real results with increased economic production, job growth and rising wages,” said Dalrymple. “Despite a downturn in commodity prices impacting the state’s two leading industries, our diversified economic base is strong and growing, with many exciting advancements occurring in the technology, manufacturing and aviation sectors. Our economy is strong and North Dakota continues to be a great place to do business.”
 
During his remarks, Dalrymple stated that North Dakota’s continued economic growth stems from nearly every business sector across the state and that no single industry tells the whole story of North Dakota’s progress. He highlighted the state’s economic strength relative to production growth, unemployment, job openings and per capita personal income.
 
  • The state’s Gross Domestic Product through 3rd quarter 2015 is still performing well above the 2012-2013 levels.
  • North Dakota continues to have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation at just 2.9 percent for February 2016.
  • As of March 2016, North Dakota has more than 15,000 job openings across the state.
  • North Dakota has one of the fastest growing populations in the nation. Up until 2008, North Dakota was losing population. In 2013 alone, more than 18,000 new residents moved to the state. Between 2010 and 2014, North Dakota’s overall population increased 9.9 percent.
  • North Dakota continues to be one of only a few states whose populations are getting younger, with 9.6 percent of residents between the age of 20 and 24 compared to 7.1 percent nationally.
  • Since the fourth quarter of 2007, North Dakota’s personal income has led the nation in growth at an annual rate of 5.1 percent. In 2015, even with the economic slowdown, the state still ranked in the top 10 for per capita personal income at number 9 in the nation. 
The Governor also highlighted some of the advancements and opportunities emerging from North Dakota’s target industries and cited examples of businesses throughout the state that are reporting job and revenue growth.
 
  • North Dakota is well positioned in the energy industry as Bakken Shale is shown as the best cost value oil in the U.S. oil plays. Efficiencies in the industry are lowering the break-even point for companies to make a profit.
  • The state’s technology-based business sector is growing and diversifying, and leading the nation in innovative advances. The state’s technology industry payroll has grown to more than $1 billion a year, providing an average wage of $79,500. Companies like Microsoft and Amazon have long called North Dakota home. They, together with other high-tech companies like NISC, Intelligent Insites and Appareo, have shown growth in the state and continue to expand.
  • North Dakota is home to a growing cluster of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) research, business and military interests. Partnerships among private businesses, universities and state government strengthen North Dakota’s position as a leader in UAS. The state is one of six Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) UAS test sites conducting research to determine how to best integrate UAS into the national airspace. The FAA certified the Northern Plains UAS Test Site as the first site ready for operations in April 2014. Northrop Grumman and General Atomics — world leaders in aviation and aerospace — are investing millions in North Dakota.
  • Manufacturers in North Dakota account for 5.8 percent of the total output in the state and employ 5.6 percent of the workforce. Total output from manufacturing was $3.25 billion in 2014. In addition, there were 25,900 manufacturing employees in North Dakota in 2015, with an average annual compensation of $55,754.

          Inside Fargo, America's Most Undervalued Tech Hub   
By Fortune
Editor's Note: Congratulations to the many Fargo-area businesses mentioned in this article. Many of them have participate in ND Commerce programs such as Innovate ND, Centers of Excellence and Centers of Research Excellence, Research ND and the North Dakota Development Fund.

It gets 50 inches of snow a year and is so cold that its bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But its homegrown tech community is on fire.

The morning of Nov. 12, 2014 was well below freezing in Fargo, the largest city in North Dakota. By the time Shawn Muehler took the stage before an audience of 150, the theater, located just a few blocks west of the Red River, had warmed up. Entrepreneurs, students, professors and business leaders shuffled down the aisles with free cups of coffee. For the audience, it was time for Fargo’s 1 Million Cups, a robust startup community-building initiative from the Kaufman Foundation that’s a kind of church for entrepreneurs. For Muehler, it was time to talk about drones.

Standing on stage with one of his drones, Muehler—a Fargo native, Air Force officer, and seasoned pilot—had six minutes to present his business idea, the result of several months of white-board calculating, late-night brainstorming, and endless code tinkering. He described the collision risks found in an airspace that is increasingly crowded with aircraft and drones. The software that he and his small team of pilots, developers, and engineers wanted to build, he explained, would create a safety net for drone pilots, enabling them to track their unmanned vehicles in real time using existing cellular networks.

Muehler’s presentation was followed by vigorous applause and a round of questions. As is tradition at 1 Million Cups, the entrepreneur was asked one final query: “How can we as a community help you succeed?” And so he answered. Within five days, Muehler tells Fortune, he had five funding opportunities from people in the community. The ensuing $500,000 seed investment allowed him to double his workforce and move to a larger office downtown.

Last spring the company, now called Botlink, launched the beta version of its drone-tracking application, which it says is the world’s first commercially available drone safety and control platform. In June, Botlink announced a joint venture with Fargo’s power management company, Packet Digital, to raise $15 million on the same day that it co-hosted Fargo’s inaugural Drone Focus Conference. By this fall, the company had launched its first product: a piece of data-processing hardware that’s compatible with every drone on the market.

When I visited the Botlink office in September, the staff had just returned from a drone conference in Las Vegas where they’d run out of brochures the first day and flummoxed some West Coast startups who didn’t realize they had competitors in Fargo. Half-empty containers of drones now littered the floor around the reception desk, making the office look like the home of a robot family unpacking from a long trip. In the workshop down the hall, a plane with a 14-foot wingspan sat on a desk, and Muehler, wearing a Batman t-shirt, was one of the first to tell me what makes Fargo special.

Well before I arrived in Fargo, I’d heard about Silicon Prairie—the Heartland’s version of Silicon Valley—with noteworthy startup activity in larger cities like Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City. I knew Fargo was on the eastern border of the state, far from the oil activity in the Bakken region. I’d read that it’s home to the country’s third-largest Microsoft  MSFT 0.65% campus and nearly 30,000 college students. The average age of Fargo residents is 31. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. I had already grasped enough about this city of 105,000 to easily dismiss the Siberia-esque picture painted in the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name. I envisioned a burst of Technicolor popping from a vast expanse of plains.

The tech scene that I visited in September was markedly different from the one I had first heard about in 2013. Two years ago Emerging Prairie, a startup news and events organization, was beginning to establish itself; today it co-organizes wildly popular events such as 1 Million Cups, TEDxFargo, and a monthly gathering called Startup Drinks. Thanks to local startup Myriad Mobile, which spun out of a student-run incubator, Fargo has begun hosting the annual Midwest Mobile Summit. A nonprofit has started offering coding classes for women. Meetups have launched for hackers, gamers, developers, geeks, and even bitcoin enthusiasts.

Fargo companies are also beginning to appear in the national spotlight. Intelligent InSites, which provides tracking real-time operational intelligence for the healthcare industry, is experiencing explosive growth. So is Appareo Systems, a leader in electronic and computer products for the aerospace and defense industries. A handful of gaming companies have surfaced in the area; one is developing a virtual reality horror game and another is building a woodland survival adventure game called On My Ownfor Xbox One. A team from North Dakota State University has engineered an affordable, 3D-printed prosthetic arm. Two locals have started a funeral webcasting service. Another startup has developed an autonomous tractor.

With all of this activity, how does a place like Fargo end up as one of the most undervalued, overlooked tech communities in the United States? That’s why I wanted to meet Greg Tehven, the executive director and co-founder of Emerging Prairie and affectionately known as Fargo’s ambassador, when I visited the city this fall. On a warm Sunday afternoon, I found him at a community lunch for new Americans, set up for several hundred on a basketball court on the west side of town. Characteristic of the region, the wind blew like it was trying to prove something; strong guests sent naan cartwheeling across curry vegetables and off paper plates. Young Bhutanese girls danced barefoot on the asphalt in sequined dresses the color of Gerber daisies.

Tehven is a soft-spoken, dyed-in-the-wool millennial, a fifth-generation Fargoian who grew up on a farm and came of age during the Buffalo Commons era, when people debated a proposal to let buffalo take over the Great Plains. Tehven left Fargo for college, wandered around, felt unfulfilled and returned, determined to build the type of community he wanted to call home. Today, he travels around the country speaking about community-building and teaches social entrepreneurship in India.

“Barriers are being eliminated to contribute to the community here,” he told me. “People who have moved away know they can come back here and do things quickly.” He talked about a radically inclusive culture that has an extraordinary speed of trust. In economic terms, what’s happening in Fargo is that a magnetic downtown is attracting and retaining talent. But Tehven contends that it’s really about love.

“It’s about increasing the amount of love in our community,” he said, noting that it’s hard to be successful on your own. “There’s a co-dependence here.” He said people need each other, whether it’s for harvesting crops or recovering from a flood. If emotional support is absent, innovation will falter.

The next morning, I met Tehven at Prairie Den, a new coworking space in the center of town, above a Chinese restaurant called King House Buffet. Until this summer, it was run by Minneapolis-based CoCo, but they didn’t last a year, Tehven said, because they didn’t embrace the philosophy of giving before getting. Shortly after they left, the space was resurrected as the Den, a funky, art-filled workspace that’s home to Emerging Prairie and a couple start-ups. Hearing the story of this rebirth made me think of the new growth that quickly emerges in forests after controlled burns.

One of the reasons Emerging Prairie was created was to act as a publicity machine for locals who think it’s uncouth to celebrate one’s own achievements. The organization, which is in the process of becoming a nonprofit, now has a staff of four, including a writer, Marisa Jackels, who produces daily stories about the startup scene. She never runs out of content. Tehven has each new staff member read Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City by Foundry Group co-founder Brad Feld.

If Fargo had to limit itself to a single story, it would be that of Great Plains Software, a fledgling startup built by North Dakotan Doug Burgum over nearly two decades and acquired by Microsoft in 2001 for $1.1 billion. Today, Microsoft is located on the south side of town and has grown to four buildings with more than 1,500 employees—the company’s third-largest campus in North America.

Burgum went on to found Kilbourne Group, a downtown redevelopment company, and co-found Arthur Ventures, a venture capital group that’s investing in software companies out of a $45 million fund raised in 2013. He’s as close to a godfather as the humble Fargo community will allow. Incidentally, it wasn’t until well after a conversation with a community leader named Joe—who started a downtown farmer’s market, worked on Uber-friendly legislation and is now building a giant mobile sauna—that I found out he was Burgum’s son.

Burgum said Great Plains employees focused on service and had a lot of humility and gratitude; he sees that today in the dozens of startups that employ Great Plains alumni. Like others, he told me that the region’s land and history play a role in today’s technology growth.

“Every farmer and rancher is an entrepreneur and tinkerer and inventor,” he said, “and there’s some of that DNA here. You wouldn’t have ended up here if you weren’t a risk-taker—moving your family from Sweden to a new land with no electricity and very little infrastructure.”

Shane Waslaski, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, also grew up in the state and said the strong tech community in Fargo can be attributed to a pioneering spirit and an “altruistic desire to nourish each other.” Tenaciousness and perseverance are rooted in the heritage, he said.

From Prairie Den, Tehven and I walked around downtown, popping into offices and meetings unannounced and intercepting folks on Broadway and Roberts Street—as was his plan. I was reminded of the familiarity and ease with which students can have impromptu and rich conversations while walking across a college quad. Time and again, talking to Muehler and other entrepreneurs, I heard stories that made it easy to root for the underdog that is Fargo. I found a level of enthusiasm typically reserved for young political candidates offering hope and promising change. More than once, I saw someone get choked up talking about the place they call home.

We ran into Drew Spooner, a baby-faced serial entrepreneur who started the Hammock Initiative and speaks deadpan about the health benefits of swaying. He now has sponsors and a national following. Then we ran into the woman behind Unglued, a shop selling locally made crafts; and one of the brewers behind Fargo Brewing Company, which makes Wood Chipper India Pale Ale. Much of the day, Tehven, wearing jeans and flannel, walked around with a cup of coffee in his hand. He told me there’s a sense in Fargo that if you talk about something enough, it will become real—whether it’s a hammocking craze or a spontaneous tailgate party.

Among the challenges in a town with so much startup activity is making sure the entrepreneurs have enough support to get over the first-generation hump and maintain momentum even when the initial spotlight fades.

“In cities like San Francisco, Boston, New York, there’s a lot of experience and expertise,” said Miguel Danielson, another Emerging Prairie co-founder. “That’s great for entrepreneurs because it’s scary to do alone. So a lot of what we do at Emerging Prairie is try to bring these folks together.” He lovingly describes Fargo—remote, hundreds of miles from Minneapolis and Winnipeg—as a Gilligan’s Island of sorts. “You’re stuck with the folks you’ve got in the immediate vicinity, so you better be nice to them,” he said, adding that in a small place, he feels especially blessed when he finds others with common interests.

Danielson grew up in Fargo and left for college and Harvard Law School. If it weren’t for the startup culture—which is helping Midwestern communities fight brain drain–he may never have returned. After practicing in Cambridge for several years, he opened Danielson Legal in Fargo, specializing in technology law, and he created Fargo Startup House, where entrepreneurs can live for free.

In the next five years, Danielson predicts a more robust Fargo tech scene, with a few wild successes and some wild failures. When the city sees its first exit success story of this new era—someone who starts with nothing and ends up with hundreds of millions of dollars—he said that will be “one that looms in the minds of people forever.”

At the end of my day in Fargo, I returned to Prairie Den. Spooner was setting up hammocks for an evening event. An Emerging Prairie Tweet read, “We sway while we work.”

That night, I watched a video of Tehven’s TEDxFargo talk. He was speaking at the Fargo Civic Center in 2014, outside of which sits a stone slab with the Ten Commandments.

“The Coen brothers were wrong,” he told the audience. “It isn’t a place of barrenness. It isn’t a place of cold. It’s a place of the most amazing people in the world.”

The following week I had dinner back home with a friend who works in the technology industry, and I told him I thought he should move to Fargo. Yes, it’s a place that gets an average of 50 inches of snow a year, and it’s so cold that the bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But there’s a lot going on there, I told him. Shortly thereafter, I woke up from a dream in which I was on my way back to Fargo. In it, I was with someone—perhaps my tech friend—and felt a sense of urgency. Eager to find housing, I sped westward, not wanting to miss out.

While reading a good discussion at MacInTouch.com about the current state of Apple Stores and customer experiences in them, one poster gave his opinion of the difference between Steve Jobs and the current Apple executive team that I thought was a good summary of what Apple is lacking without him around:

"Apple has been a lifestyle company since the iPhone was introduced; specifically, the iPhone has created a lifestyle, and therefore the company has filled the gap and "answered the questions" associated with having a society carrying around always-on, always connected, little super-computers. I'm not convinced that the Apple Store we know now, let alone some of Apple's products, are quite what Steve would have approved of. To be honest, when Steve Jobs was alive, he was a bit of a ringmaster and purveyor of taste. What went to production only did so, generally, if he fully approved of it. He was always coaxing out of Ive and many others the product of their talents, and when he was happy with the product of their combined talents, that is when the general public saw it.

Like many organizations which have had dynamic and irreplaceable leaders, like Jobs, no matter how many high-quality, high-talent, lieutenants are in place when that leader departs, all those heads which they used to lead, coach, and coordinate, are now left to their own devices. Tim Cook was, and still is, probably the best CFO in modern business history (of course it should be easy to be an effective CFO if the company you work for is making money). This does not make him a great CEO or leader for Apple, but he is very good an managing billions and billions of dollars in cash, and knows how to make more cash. However, he is not creative and not a tastemaker; not like Jobs. He relies on others in his organization to do that. Although folks like Ive haven't lost any of their talent or personal vision, there is no longer that driving force which is challenging them to higher levels of performance, new ideas, etc.

Which leads us to the current state of many Apple Stores (not all), the rocky introduction of Watch, the unremarkable, and at the same time remarkable, evolution of the iPhone and iPad and many other Apple missteps of recent memory. I think the Apple product line would be very different right now if Steve had lived and continued to be the tastemaker and driving force behind the company. If Steve were around, there wouldn't be 5 different iPhones on sale at the same time. The Mac Pro would never have been allowed to languish, Apple Watch may or may not have come to market when it did, or at all, and maybe not in the form we know now, and I believe that Apple Stores would be places that regular folks and programmers could go and both feel appreciated and receive the service that meets their needs. When he passed, all of those qualities of the old Apple passed with him, and mere mortals now run Apple."

Craigslist. It seemed fishy... but the holograms were convincing. The box was right. It installed fine too. Worked perfectly for some time until Microsoft spied broke into my machine and identified it as counterfeit.
Not really sure I'd consider that "spying" since all they have to do is check your serial number in their database, the one that gets uploaded when you install it, but that doesn't explain why it worked in the first place.

I consider spying to be something more like the way they use Cortana, the built-in voice assistant in Windows 10.

Cortana: The spy in Windows 10

In any case, I would never buy supposedly new software from Craigslist just to save a few bucks. It's simply not worth it, as you found out. Craigslist goods and people can be dodgy enough without making it easy for them to rip you off. You're better off buying from eBay where you can check a seller's reputation and make sure they have a long history of providing genuine goods. Craigslist is always a last resort for me as a buyer.

          Building a Giant in the Heavy-Equipment Industry   
By Gallup
"To be successful today, you've got to convince customers that you'll take care of them when they're down -- and you've got to walk the walk, you can't just talk it. You've got to prove it time and time again."

So says Ron Offutt, founder of RDO Equipment Co., one of the largest John Deere dealers in North America. He is also the founder of R.D. Offutt Company, the largest potato grower in the U.S.

For more than 45 years, Ron has been building an empire on lifelong relationships with agriculture and construction equipment customers by adhering to three simple principles: maintain a sense of core values, understand your stakeholders' ever-shifting needs and deliver the finest service. His family business grew steadily, got big, went public and then was taken private again, and the equipment side became a $2 billion business.

It all started along the North Dakota-Minnesota border in the metropolitan area of Fargo-Moorhead in 1968. Ron was farming in partnership with his father and renting equipment from a John Deere dealer in Casselton, North Dakota, when the dealer offered him the opportunity to buy the business.

From that initial purchase, Ron steadily acquired John Deere dealerships throughout the upper Midwest. RDO now operates in more than 100 locations across the U.S. and worldwide, with 90% domestic revenue growth over the past five years (13.9% compound annual growth rate) and nearly triple domestic operating income growth. RDO offers a wide array of construction and farming equipment for high-performance companies across the globe.

How did one dealership turn into a giant in the heavy equipment industry? With an intense focus on engaging employees and customers throughout their business.

From Private, to Public, to Private Again

A visit to RDO in late 2014 finds a workforce brimming with excitement about the company's heritage and its future. In the flagship Moorhead location, relics from the past -- classic tractors and other historical machinery -- are on display alongside cutting-edge farming equipment. In a daily storewide meeting, team members discuss the projects they are currently working on and exchange ideas, while managers motivate their employees with goals for that day, week and month.

Employees at the store are quick to say that the company is a "great place to work."

"This is a great industry to be in, and if you're going to be a part of it, we want you to choose us," says Jean Zimmerman, RDO's executive vice president of organizational development.

Zimmerman notes that the company's culture is guided by the principles of servant leadership, radical transparency, personal growth and, above all, trust.

As RDO grew throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, so did the enticement of taking this family-owned business public. In 1997, Ron issued an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. In a booming economy, the decision seemed to be the right one. But almost immediately, things didn't turn out as planned.

"Very quickly I knew that I didn't like the public game, and I don't think my father did either. There was lots and lots of pressure to grow," says Christi Offutt, Ron's daughter and chairwoman and CEO of RDO. "But what I was learning was that the more pressure the team got to meet quarterly expectations, the worse the company was performing. We were moving away from talking about the customer, we were moving away from talking about the culture, and we were spending all of our time talking about meeting analyst expectations to keep the revenues growing."

Amid these frustrations, the board of directors chose Christi to become chief operating officer in 2001. Soon after that, the Offutt family took the company private again, where it has remained ever since. Christi stayed at the helm. Ron characterizes this time as the dividing point between what RDO originally was and what it is today.

"I think there are two cultures in the life of our business: the one that I started, and the one that Christi started," Ron says. "I was able to be successful in the business when I created a culture of tremendous loyalty on behalf of the employees who worked for me. We knew each other's families; we knew each other's personal strengths and weaknesses. As [the company] grew, that culture needed to change for the company to take the next step, which Christi brought to the house."

Shifting From a Transactional Business to a Solutions Provider

In the company's first phase, before Christi took over in 2001, RDO sold much more individual agricultural equipment. Farms were smaller then, and there were more of them.

"When I started, [RDO] was very much a transactional business -- sale by sale, customer by customer," Ron says. "Today it's more about being a solutions provider for your customer and helping that customer solve his or her problem."

In RDO's modern culture, top leaders at the company say they maintain their success internally and externally by adhering to a set of action-oriented core values for business operation. These values include collaborating with employees, building customers for life, creating opportunities and committing to doing what they say and playing to win. RDO prides itself on the principle "There are no secrets here."

"We've instilled and empowered our managers to understand what our core values are and how we operate with our stakeholders so they can make the right decision," says Chris Cooper, an executive vice president at RDO.

Keith Kreps, also an RDO executive vice president, says a culture of creativity and trust exists companywide, which fosters innovation and high levels of employee engagement. "When you don't feel like you're paralyzed by making the wrong decision that could affect your career or affect your job -- as long as you made an educated decision -- you really get people coming out with great ideas and a lot of creativity. They're willing to go out there and 'wow' our other employees and customers," Kreps says.

Toward True Engagement

In 2014, RDO worked with Gallup to move beyond employee satisfaction -- which focuses more on superficial company perks -- to true employee engagement, which is about fostering a deeper sense of connection to one's job and company. Now, 52% of RDO's employees are engaged, with 8.67 engaged employees for every one actively disengaged employee. Organizations that lead the world in employee engagement have 9.1 engaged employees to every disengaged employee, so these are "very encouraging early results," Zimmerman says.

Zimmerman credits these results to initiatives the company implemented over the past several years. Every employee now has an individual learning plan, and RDO spends 15% more on training than comparable-sized organizations. The company offers a 30-month management institute for its leaders. RDO leaders have also integrated engagement into their leadership approach and communication strategy, weaving it into their operations and day-to-day conversations.

"I truly believe that the initiatives we've developed to support our culture along with a strengths-based leadership approach leads to a more engaged workplace culture," Christi says.

Zimmerman agrees, emphasizing that the culture must promote hard work and RDO must be an enjoyable place to work. "We've taken steps of making this a place that attracts and keeps employees and attracts and keeps our customers," he says.

Growing Pains

Because of RDO's persistent growth, the company is experiencing some growing pains. In part, this is the result of the breakneck pace of North Dakota's economy and the various challenges that come with operating in nine U.S. states. Business is booming so much that there are too many jobs and not enough people to fill them.

"We've got well over 2,000 employees, but we have opportunities to continue to grow," Cooper says. "We have close to 200 open positions that we're still trying to fill."

Christi mentions that there is plenty of competition for today's skilled labor pool: "We've recruited from everywhere -- Georgia, Florida, California, Alaska -- it's a continuous challenge."

Amid these challenges, RDO continues to redefine the business of equipment in the 21st century. The company's leaders say RDO is committed to finding cutting-edge solutions for its customers.

"I think you'll see less growth in the size of the machines," Ron says. "What you're going to see is more intelligent equipment, and that will increase productivity for the producer."

This kind of "precision agriculture" may keep RDO at the forefront of offering technological solutions to its customers, and the company sees further growth from its ventures in Russia, Ukraine, Mexico and Australia in the years to come. Already these international partnerships are providing solutions to a wide range of customers, even in troubled hot spots. RDO forecasts $360 million in international revenues in 2015, of which Russia and Ukraine factor into the mix.

Ryan Offutt, Ron's son and Christi's brother, runs RDO's Russia and Ukraine operations. As someone who represents the future of RDO and the path it will take in decades to come, he reflects on how what RDO means to customers in 2015. "We're a big part of our customers' lives, and they're dependent upon on our team members to deliver solutions to them every day," Ryan says. "Having a reliable partner is critical to their success."

          Technology Created at NDSU Licensed to c2sensor   
By Newswise
A technology developed at North Dakota State University, Fargo, creates precise in-the-ground measurement and monitoring of soil and crop conditions which could provide opportunities for greater yields. The technology also has led to a new start-up company. The c2sensor corp., based in the NDSU Technology Incubator, has concluded a license agreement with the NDSU Research Foundation (NDSU/RF) for the precision agriculture technology.

Developed by a research team at NDSU, the sensors are constructed using NDSU's patent-pending "direct write" electronic printing techniques to print circuit and antenna patterns directly onto renewable, bio-based substrates. Developed between the NDSU Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering and the Mechanical Engineering Department at NDSU, the sensors are made with biocomposites so they can be left in the ground to biodegrade without harming soil quality.

The research team placed microsensors in fields at the Soil Health and Agriculture Research Extension (SHARE) farm in Richland county in southeastern North Dakota. Called SEED, which stands for Sensing Earth Environment Directly, the bio-degradable sensors are placed in the ground like seeds, with the potential to directly measure soil salinity, moisture, fertility, and chemicals in real time.

Sensors in the future could be placed directly into the soil during the seeding process, by mixing the sensors in with the seed during planting. A reading device mounted beneath an agricultural vehicle or other agricultural implements would interact with the SEED sensors embedded in the soil, and then provide direct measurements of soil conditions, moisture, and chemical content in real time.

“The NDSU-developed sensor technology licensed by c2sensor is different from current methods, which often require a combination of direct measurement such as soil sampling, or indirect measurements such as remote sensing via probes,” said Corey Kratcha, CEO of c2sensor.

Materials used to create the sensors allow them to be left in place after use, where they can degrade without leaving toxins in the soil. Wireless communication with the sensor is based on passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology with no batteries needed.
“As the product is developed, it could assist farmers to monitor salinity levels, nutrient levels for fertilizer applications, moisture and pH levels,” said Chad Ulven, associate professor of mechanical engineering. “It could be coupled with aerial mapping via UAVs or satellite imaging, giving farmers real time soil analysis for end-of-year field work.”
NDSU researchers in microelectronics, mechanical engineering and the NDSU Extension Service who were part of the initial research team include: Chad Ulven, associate professor of mechanical engineering; Cherish Bauer-Reich, Justin Hoey, Rob Sailer, Nathan Schneck and other members of the NDSU Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering; and Abbey Wick, NDSU Extension Service.

“Generating technologies that lead to start-up companies to bring discoveries to market is one of the ways that NDSU, as a student-focused, land grant, research university, serves the citizens of the state,” said Kelly A. Rusch, vice president for research and creative activity at NDSU.

“Licensing of this sensor technology to c2sensor represents an opportunity to commercialize this research,” said Dale Zetocha, executive director of the NDSU Research Foundation. “Licensing the technology to a North Dakota company supports goals to further diversify economic opportunities in the state.”

The North Dakota Corn Utilization Council provided initial funding at NDSU for the seed sensor project. Following licensing to c2sensor, additional funding through the North Dakota Department of Commerce Venture Grant Program and the North Dakota Centers of Excellence will be utilized to further develop the sensor technology.

          Taxpayers’ Income Doubles Since ND Boom Began   
By CBS Minnesota
Reported income by all North Dakotans has more than doubled to a record $30.4 billion since the infancy of the state’s oil boom in 2006, tax return filings show.

Tax Department figures released to The Associated Press show the number of taxpayers in the state has jumped 37 percent since the state’s oil bonanza began, from 339,000 in 2006 to 466,000 in 2013. Just over 440,000 tax returns were filed in 2012.

Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger said the increase in income and the number of taxpayers contributes heavily to the state’s robust economy.

“More people are buying more things with that type of income,” he said. “It has an effect on sales tax and the property tax base.”

While the total adjusted gross income has jumped a whopping 108 percent since $14.6 billion was reported in 2006, the average adjusted gross income for individuals dropped from $74,221 in 2012 to $71,538 last year. That’s still far above the average adjusted gross income on 2006 returns, which was about $43,300.

Rauschenberger attributed the dip in part to the more than 26,000 new filings over the previous year, which slightly brought down the average.

As for the millionaire list, the number of North Dakotans reporting incomes of more than seven figures in 2013 was pegged at 1,041, down from 1,126 in 2012. In 2006, 339 so-called income millionaires reported incomes of more than $1 million, records show.

That drop was due to the wealthier residents takingadvantage of tax cuts that expired the year prior.

“A lot of people moved income in 2012,” Rauschenberger said.

Reported million-dollar incomes come largely from royalties paid to mineral owners by oil companies in North Dakota’s 17 oil-producing counties, and “not from W-2 wages,” Rauschenberger said.

Historically, more than half of the oil royalties earned in those counties are paid to mineral owners who live outside of North Dakota and are not reported to the state for tax purposes, he said.

Kevin Iverson, manager of the census officeat the state Commerce Department, said most of North Dakota is benefiting from the state’s strong economy.

“There are some areas out there that aren’t doing so great, but by and large, we’re doing OK,” Iverson said. “And we’re certainly doing better that we use to.”

          Startups Will Star as North Dakota Drone Summit Explores Commercialization   
By Roll Call
 

For drone enthusiasts, Grand Forks, N.D., will be the place to be this week, as the state hosts its eighth annual summit featuring Federal Aviation Administration officials as well as speakers from Northrop Grumman and an array of smaller companies in the fledgling unmanned aerial systems (UAS) industry.

Danny Ellis, a spokesman for an Ann Arbor, Mich., start-up called SkySpecs, who’ll be speaking at the summit, said his firm is developing small aerial systems “with a focus on advanced intelligence for applications requiring immediate obstacle avoidance. Our first market and customer is in wind turbine blade inspection.”

 

The firm, with nine full-time employees, all graduates of the University of Michigan, recently won a $150,000 National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research grant to do work on solving the sense and avoid problem for small unmanned aerial systems, Ellis said. The company’s first commercial devices will be available by the end of this year.

Another summit speaker, Zach Lamppa, the president of North Dakota-based firm Energy Intelligence, will be discussing how unmanned aerial systems can be used for inspecting oil and gas pipelines.

Al Palmer, the director of the University of North Dakota’s Center for UAS Research, Education and Training, who’ll also be speaking at the three-day summit, said he expected “a lot of focus on commercialization. I think for the industry to grow, we need to commercialize; very similar to what the airplane did after World War I — a great weapons system, but aviation didn’t come into its own until it was commercialized.”

Last year the FAA chose North Dakota as one of six UAS sites around the country to do research on how to integrate drones into the nation’s airspace.

“The test site is leveraging North Dakota State University research and University of North Dakota’s experience in aerospace, and our expectation is that we will continue doing research after the February 2017 mandate for the test site to shut down,” Palmer said.

Since 2003 the University of North Dakota has carried out nearly $60 million in research on UAS, with funding from federal, state and private sources, he said.

The university launched the nation’s first four-year degree program in unmanned aircraft systems in 2009 with five students. Now there are more than 130 enrolled.

Last week the FAA announced that the fourth of the six UAS test sites, at the Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi, became operational. Its missions will include monitoring wetlands along the Padre Island National Seashore and research on tracking tropical storms.

          THE TIES THAT BIND:   
The Time I Got Recruited to Collude with the Russians (Matt Tait  Friday, June 30, 2017, LawFare)

A few weeks later, right around the time the DNC emails were dumped by Wikileaks--and curiously, around the same time Trump called for the Russians to get Hillary Clinton's missing emails--I was contacted out the blue by a man named Peter Smith, who had seen my work going through these emails. Smith implied that he was a well-connected Republican political operative.

Initially, I assumed the query must have been about my work on the DNC hack; after all, few people followed my account prior to the DNC breach, whereas my analysis of the break-in at the DNC had received considerably more coverage. I assumed his query about the "Clinton emails" was therefore a mistake and that he meant instead to talk to me about the emails stolen from the DNC. So I agreed to talk to him, thinking that, whatever my views on then-candidate Trump, if a national campaign wanted an independent non-partisan view on the facts surrounding the case, I should provide it to the best of my ability.

Yet Smith had not contacted me about the DNC hack, but rather about his conviction that Clinton's private email server had been hacked--in his view almost certainly both by the Russian government and likely by multiple other hackers too--and his desire to ensure that the fruits of those hacks were exposed prior to the election. Over the course of a long phone call, he mentioned that he had been contacted by someone on the "Dark Web" who claimed to have a copy of emails from Secretary Clinton's private server, and this was why he had contacted me; he wanted me to help validate whether or not the emails were genuine. [...]

Over the course of our conversations, one thing struck me as particularly disturbing. Smith and I talked several times about the DNC hack, and I expressed my view that the hack had likely been orchestrated by Russia and that the Kremlin was using the stolen documents as part of an influence campaign against the United States. I explained that if someone had contacted him via the "Dark Web" with Clinton's personal emails, he should take very seriously the possibility that this may have been part of a wider Russian campaign against the United States. And I said he need not take my word for it, pointing to a number of occasions where US officials had made it clear that this was the view of the U.S. intelligence community as well.

Smith, however, didn't seem to care. From his perspective it didn't matter who had taken the emails, or their motives for doing so. He never expressed to me any discomfort with the possibility that the emails he was seeking were potentially from a Russian front, a likelihood he was happy to acknowledge. If they were genuine, they would hurt Clinton's chances, and therefore help Trump.

When he first contacted me, I did not know who Smith was, but his legitimate connections within the Republican party were apparent. My motive for initially speaking to him was that I wondered if the campaign was trying to urgently establish whether the claims that Russia had hacked the DNC was merely "spin" from the Clinton campaign, or instead something they would need to address before Trump went too far down the road of denying it. My guess was that maybe they wanted to contact someone who could provide them with impartial advice to understand whether the claims were real or just rhetoric.

Although it wasn't initially clear to me how independent Smith's operation was from Flynn or the Trump campaign, it was immediately apparent that Smith was both well connected within the top echelons of the campaign and he seemed to know both Lt. Gen. Flynn and his son well. Smith routinely talked about the goings on at the top of the Trump team, offering deep insights into the bizarre world at the top of the Trump campaign. Smith told of Flynn's deep dislike of DNI Clapper, whom Flynn blamed for his dismissal by President Obama. Smith told of Flynn's moves to position himself to become CIA Director under Trump, but also that Flynn had been persuaded that the Senate confirmation process would be prohibitively difficult. He would instead therefore become National Security Advisor should Trump win the election, Smith said. He also told of a deep sense of angst even among Trump loyalists in the campaign, saying "Trump often just repeats whatever he's heard from the last person who spoke to him," and expressing the view that this was especially dangerous when Trump was away.

Apple upgrades Mac Pros without increasing their starting prices

Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple Inc has upgraded its Mac Pro desktop computers by equipping them with faster CPUs, more efficient GPUs and additional memory, while keeping their starting prices at their existing levels.

While Apple hasn’t officially unveiled the new standard configurations of its Mac computers, it showed them on its website earlier this month.

The previous Mac Pro 4-core model now comes equipped with a 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor that offers 12MB of L3 cache and Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz. The former 6-core Mac Pro model now come equipped withy an 8-core Intel Xeon E5 processor that offers 25MB of L3 cache and Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz.

The new 6-core Mac Pro also comes with the optional 3.0GHz 8-core processor with 25MB of L3 cache or a 2.7GHz twelve-core processor with 30MB of L3 cache. Buyers of the new 8-core model can also upgrade to a 2.7GHz 12-core chip accompanied by 30MB of L3 cache.

In addition, the updated 6-core model gets 16GB of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory standard, up from 12GB in the previous model. The 6-core Mac Pro now gets dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs. Both models continue to come equipped with 256 gigabytes of PCIe-based flash storage that can be upgraded to 512GB or 1TB of storage at some additional cost.

Despite the significant enhancements, Mac Pro desktop lineup’s starting prices remained at their existing levels. The six-core and eight-core models of the Mac Pro start at $2,999 and $3,999, respectively.

          Elon Musk’s new firm to merge human brain with machines   
Elon Musk’s new firm to merge human brain with machines

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has founded another tech firm called Neuralink, which aims to create a much more sophisticated artificial intelligence by linking human brains with computers.

Neuralink will focus on using the neural lace technology where humans and machines will be able to interact with each other without using any physical interface.

The so-called neural lace technology works through implantation of electrodes into the brain, which allows people to communicate with machines. Such a blend will allow people to upload as well as download their thoughts as well. It will also improve humans’ cognitive skills in addition to their memory.

Mr. Musk’s SpaceX is meanwhile working on an ambitious plan to take humans to Mars. The new technology would likely be of great help in achieving that goal.

Philip Rhoades, who founded a body-freezing cryonics lab & a brain preserving firm called the Neural Archives Foundation, said, “I am convinced that I need to become a virtual person (via mind uploading) sooner rather than later … I don’t care if your average Facebook user thinks it’s all crazy...”

Electrode implants in the human brain are already used in several people diagnosed with neurological disorders like epilepsy and Parkinson’s. However, these implants aren’t as complex as Mr. Musk envisions them to be.

          Aug 24th: Scottish Government Have Done Us Proud Over Lockerbie But They Need To Go Further   


I'm proud that Kenny MacAskill and the Scottish government stood firm against US threats and bullying (albeit muted threats, and perhaps relief paraded as "outrage" that Megrhai's legal appeal against conviction has been stopped in its tracks before the conviction was overturned in court).

But the Scottish government have only done half the job. If there is no public inquiry into the 1988 Lockerbie bombing then the real bombers of Pan Am Flight 103 will have got away with it, the victims families will have been conned, and the Scottish government will have given in to the US/UK governments pressure to cover up what really happened.

The hidden agenda that led to the UK and US intelligence services framing of Al-Meghrahi and Libya is still being suppressed in the mainstream Scottish media. The real culprits - which most independent investigations have named very specifically as a Palestinian terrorist cell based in Germany and headed by Hafez Dalkamonim (part of Ahmed Jibril's PFLP group as it was back then) have never stood trial for this inhuman crime. Its about time they did if justice is to be done.

I hope the Scottish government press on and bring out the truth in court. It will mean embarrassing the UK and British governments for their complity in fabricating evidence and putting on a show trial in the Netherlands with a pre-arranged verdict. It will also mean putting the CIA and FBI in the dock and unmasking some fairly sordid power games being played out in the Middle East in the late 80/early 90s.

Have the SNP's minority government got the guts to do that in the teeth of international pressure? PLus relentless hostility from the entire Scottish, British and American corporately-owned media? I suspect not but the Scottish government have shown some remarkable resilience and independence of thought this last week so you never know.

A QUESTION...

Why has this important news story in yesterday's Scottish Sunday Mail- which exonerates Megrahi and Libya - been given almost no coverage by BBC Scotland, STV News, and today's Herald and Scotsman?

CIA spook says Megrahi was freed before appeal humiliated justice system (Sunday Mail, 22nd Aug 2009)

Even Murdoch's flagship Sunday smelled a rat: US blamed Iran for Lockerbie bomb (Sunday Times, 16th Aug 2009)

An excellent insightful column today from one of Scotland's best (of a bad bunch admittedly) political analysts: Open season on MacAskill after Megrahi’s release (The Herald, 24th Aug 2009)

          Los más leídos en Argentina en el 2011   
Vieron cuando una está así que ¡No lo puede creer! Lo explico.

Sin importar los puestos –porque fueron tomados de las dos más grandes librerías de Buenos Aires, donde pasa la vida – los más leídos en Argentina durante el 2011 fueron: Sandra Russo, Martín Lousteau y… Luis Majul???

Lo de Sandra Russo es entendible, fue la única persona que entrevistó a Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (No da entrevistas a NADIE) en varias oportunidades y así nació “La Presidenta”. Muestra otro perfil, una mirada sobre la mujer, esposa, madre y siempre militante. El amor por Néstor Kirchner que nos hace entender un poco esta personalidad avasallante, esta firmeza aun quedando viuda y hasta el nacimiento de los hijos se entienden como militancia. Los unía el amor, pero más que nada la pasión por el país y supieron apuntalarse, fortalecerse para llegar hasta donde llegaron. De los hijos supongo que esperaban dejar un buen cuadro político, o dos… no sé si lo logrará, personalmente no me caben las formas del pibe.

No estoy haciendo una publicidad de Cristina, ni de Sandra Russo que no la necesita de mí, es una periodista grosa y tiene mi respeto (aunque ha cambiado mucho). A la presidenta la voté, la banco, la respeto… Me gustan muchas cosas, casi todo… y sobre todo que es mujer. Esa sensibilidad que le hacía falta a este país y no teníamos. La persona con mejor discurso y oratoria que conozco y de quien aprendo. Además de una inteligencia superior, obvio! Pero conservo mi espíritu crítico y no estoy junto a lxs militantes que de tan felices y agradecidos le entregarían su alma. No me parece, la obsecuencia o el fanatismo no son buenos para el ser humano. Ojo, es mi modo de pensar.

Y dije entendible que fuera el más leído porque la votamos el 54% del país. Es una señal más que importante.

Lo de Luosteau, habla de Economía, tema que a veces no importaba y capaz también gracias a la Presidenta y parte de su gabinete despertamos y nos dimos cuenta que para entender o reclamar teníamos que saber… que la economía no es algo que pasa sino algo que nos pasa, en cada acción, en cada detalle de nuestra vida. Además, el carilindo de Lousteau usó una de las técnicas más nefastas, pero de muy de moda –lamentablemente – en Argentina; el escándalo.

Ya venía de una salida, muy ruidosa del Ministerio de Economía por negarse a usar fondos del Banco Central y su negativa a algunas políticas… A esto le sumó, a días previos de la presentación del libro, que lo fotografiaran en un auto besándose con la bella nieta de Mirta Legrand, Juana Viale ; casada con el chileno Gonzalo Valenzuela y embarazada de 6 meses!!! (Nadie me saca de la cabeza que el tipo lo armó) Fue un escándalo y no solo nacional, puesto que también involucró a Chile. Para colmo de males el bebito no pudo nacer y murió faltando pocos días para la fecha de parto. El morbo sumó, la prensa nacional e internacional lo calificaban como la figurita difícil y todxs buscaban su palabra. Le surgieron conferencias por el mundo e invitaciones a innumerables programas de radio y tv, diarios. etc. . Creo que la ignorancia hasta hizo pensar que encontrarían algo del romance en el libro.

Si bien no coincidía con algunas de sus formas, le respetaba su capacidad y conocimientos, es joven y para nada un improvisado.. Después de esto lo miré desde otro luhar. Respeto hacia su persona, No. Todavía no lo leí.

Y llegó el turno de Luis Majul, no me detendré mucho en este señor. Sin duda vendió más de lo que las listas marcan, como los mencionados supra. Escribió “Él y Ella” críticas o el supuesto lado oscuro de Cristina Fernández de Kirchner y Néstor Kirchner.

No porque escriba en contra del gobierno me cae mal, no soy tan sencilla Respeto todas las opiniones, pero convengamos que este personaje me parece patético: como periodista, como conductor de tv, como entrevistador, como conductor de radio y sobre todo como persona. Si vendió lo felicito, pero si tienen la oportunidad de leer el libro notarán que es flojito, para olvidar. Otros contrarios al gobierno han realizado mejores trabajos, con investigaciones serias, argumentos para respetar y buena redacción!

Les iba postear solo el link donde salen los mejores puestos de ventas en Argentina 2011, pero me entusiasmé escribiendo para darles mi opinión.

Creo que alguno de estos libros, al menos el de Sandra Russo lo pueden bajar por internet, alguien me comentó que estaba en pdf. Sino, cuesta 78 pesos argentinos.

          Adiós a Ernesto Sábato   

Hoy a la 1:30 de la madrugada en su casa de Santos Lugares murió Ernesto Sábato, el próximo 24 de junio cumpliría 100 años. Sus restos serán velados en el Club Defensores de Santos Lugares, barrio donde residía desde hacía muchísimos años (1945). Del lugar solía decir "de aquí me sacan en cajón porque esta es mi patria chica"...

Sin dudas, Ernesto Sábato es uno de los principales escritores contemporáneos de la República Argentina. Nacido el 24 de junio de 1911 en Rojas (provincia de Buenos Aires), este escritor, ensayista y artista plástico ha trascendido las fronteras gracias a sus agudas reflexiones sobre la condición humana y a su compromiso, a veces cuestionado, con los derechos humanos.

Hijo de Francisco Sábato y Juana María Ferrari, Ernesto fue el décimo hijo entre once. Completó sus estudios secundarios en el Colegio Nacional de La Plata y en 1929 ingresó a la Facultad de Ciencias Físico-Matemáticas de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata.

Allí fundó el Grupo Insurrexit, de orientación comunista, junto a Héctor Agosti, Ángel Hurtado de Mendoza y Paulino González Alberdi, entre otros. Su militancia lo llevaría a ser elegido Secretario General de la Federación Juvenil Comunista en 1933. Por esa época también conoce a Matilde Kusminsky Richter, una estudiante de 17 años que deja la casa de sus padres para vivir con él. Sábato se casaría con la joven en 1936.

En 1938, recibe el Doctorado en Física y obtiene, gracias al Nobel Bernardo Houssay, una beca anual para investigar sobre las radiaciones atómicas en el Laboratorio Curie de París (Francia). Ese año nace su primer hijo, Jorge Federico, quien sería Ministro de Educación y Justicia durante el gobierno de Raúl Alfonsín. A fines de la Segunda Guerra Mundial nacería su segundo hijo, Mario Sábato, un reconocido director de cine.

Justo antes del inicio de dicha guerra, Sábato fue transferido al Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) y abandona París.

En 1940 regresa la Argentina para trabajar como docente en la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Sin embargo, en 1943, decide abandonar la ciencia y se vuelca a la literatura y a la pintura.

Su primer libro aparece en 1945 y se titula “Uno y el universo”. Allí recopila diversos ensayos filosóficos donde critica la supuesta moral neutra de la ciencia y se muestra preocupado por el avance de la tecnología.

En 1948 presenta su primera novela, “El túnel”, donde narra los asfixiantes problemas psicológicos del pintor Juan Pablo Castel. La obra sería aplaudida por Albert Camus y enmarcada dentro de la corriente filosófica del existencialismo.

“Sobre héroes y tumbas”, editada en 1961, está considerada como una de las mejores novelas argentinas del siglo XX. Esta compleja historia entremezcla de la decadencia de una familia aristocrática con la muerte del General Juan Lavalle.

Luego le seguirían obras como “Abaddón el exterminador”, “Antes del fin”, “La resistencia” y “España en los diarios de mi vejez”.

Su reconocido activismo político llevó a que el presidente argentino Raúl Alfonsín lo colocará al frente de la Comisión Nacional sobre la Desaparición de Personas (CONADEP), un organismo dedicado a investigar los crímenes cometidos durante la dictadura militar de 1976-1983. Su informe, conocido como “Nunca más” o “Informe Sábato”, es considerado un hito en la historia de los derechos humanos. Sin embargo, intelectuales como Osvaldo Bayer han criticado a Sábato por haberse reunido con el presidente de facto Jorge Rafael Videla en plena dictadura.

A lo largo de su extensa trayectoria, Ernesto Sábato ha recibido galardones como el Premio de Consagración Nacional de la Argentina (1975), Premio Cervantes (1984), Comandante de la Legión de Honor de Francia (1987) y diversos doctorados honoris causa en todo el mundo.
          Derechos de autor en un mundo digital   

16.12.2010

Los derechos de autor de los periodistas como creadores en el proceso de la información deben ser reconocidos moral y económicamente para mantener la calidad del periodismo. Esta fue la principal conclusión del encuentro "Derechos de autor en un mundo digital: por un acuerdo justo para los periodistas",celebrado en Grecia por la Federación Europea de Periodistas.

Cincuenta profesionales representantes de otras tantas asociaciones europeas apoyaron la iniciativa de llevar a cabo una campaña en defensa de los derechos de autor de los periodistas, en contra de la opinión general de editores y propietarios de medios que los consideran patrimonio empresarial. La campaña se enmarca en la actual iniciativa de la Federación Internacional de Periodistas, que tiene por lema “Periodismo como bien público”.

En representación de la Federación de Asociaciones de Periodistas de España , Luis Menéndez, defendió el contenido del artículo 32 de la Ley española de Propiedad Intelectual, que reconoce derechos de autor a los creadores de la noticia. La disyuntiva consiste en definir al creador de la noticia. La FAPE entiende que la ley se refiere aquí a los periodistas, mientras que los editores españoles se apoyan en el artículo 8 de la misma norma que define que los medios, en especial los periódicos, son “obras colectivas”.

La FAPE sostiene, por el contrario, que los periódicos son “obras complejas”, por lo que defiende unamodificación de la ley en ese sentido. Esta Federación considera, asimismo, que los periodistas deben percibir una compensación económica cada vez que se utiliza su creación, incluso en los casos en que se destina a varios medios o soportes de un mismo grupo. El reconocimiento de los derechos de autor de los periodistas debe aplicarse a todos los medios, incluidas las noticias que se producen solo para los digitales.

Los participantes en el encuentro mostraron su preocupación por los embates de la crisis económica sobre la profesión, con un aumento dramático del desempleo y el incremento de los profesionales freelances, para los que se propuso un contrato tipo mejorado al estar considerado uno de los colectivos más vapuleado por los recortes.

La cita sobre derechos de autor de los periodistas sirvió para poner sobre la mesa modelos europeos como las agencias de copyright en el caso anglosajón, o sociedades de gestión colectiva, en el resto de países. Mención aparte merece la sociedad belga de derechos de autor de los periodistas que gestiona y distribuye los beneficios tanto por publicación o emisión original como, por copia.

          La tele, un sistema cerrado de espejos y reflejos de sí misma   
El programa de Tinelli, que fue lo más visto del año, es cada vez más un vulgar circo mediático basado en los escándalos reales y/o armados. El ciclo de Canal 7, por otra parte, marcó el paso del supuesto “periodismo objetivo” al periodismo con posición.

Por Emanuel Respighi- Página 12



Fueron las dos caras –antagónicas, por cierto– de una misma pantalla. Los dos polos de atracción que signaron la televisión argentina de 2010, en una temporada que se caracterizó por los contrastes de estas dos propuestas que acapararon horas enteras del aire, a través de “programas sucursales” que funcionaron como propagadores infatigables de sus contenidos. Los que se convirtieron en tema de debate obligado en el tiempo muerto del trabajo, en la sobremesa familiar o en cualquier otro ámbito en el que dos o más personas dispusieran de tiempo para charlar. Por un lado, un ShowMatch cada vez más convertido en un vulgar circo mediático al que sólo le quedan los escándalos –reales y/o armados– para mantenerse como el programa más visto de la TV argentina (tanto en audiencia como en horas que otros programas le dedican al ciclo de Marcelo Tinelli). En el otro extremo, 6, 7, 8 revolucionó el periodismo televisivo desmantelando discursos y posiciones mediático-políticas, convirtiéndose en la llave de un derrotero que pasó del supuesto “periodismo objetivo” al periodismo con posición. Claramente, fueron los dos programas que marcaron a fuego la TV de 2010, transformada ya definitivamente en un sistema cerrado de espejos y reflejos de ella misma.

La temporada que culmina no será recordada como una de las más prósperas en términos de calidad e innovación para la pantalla chica. El interés artístico, la búsqueda de nuevos lenguajes y la pretensión de originalidad fueron cediendo lugar ante el avance de los programas de archivo y la idea cada vez más extendida entre los programadores y productores de que los escándalos y los chimentos del mundo del “espectáculo” son los dos ejes temáticos que los televidentes quieren ver. En ese contexto, la TV volvió a priorizar la fórmula fácil y se resignó a correr detrás de ShowMatch como nunca antes lo había hecho. Como consecuencia, la ficción se llevó la peor parte: hubo pocas propuestas del género, a las cuales no sólo el público no acompañó sino que, en muchos casos, tampoco lo hicieron los programadores, que decidieron levantarlas abruptamente (Caín & Abel, Secretos de amor) o modificaron el horario de sus emisiones (Alguien que me quiera).

La tinellización de la TV
Debe tratarse de un hecho iné-dito para la historia de la televisión mundial, porque no debe existir otra industria televisiva que base su programación alrededor de un único programa. La pantalla chica de 2010 vivió a la sombra de ShowMatch, convertido ya en un programa obsceno que antepone a cualquier atisbo de criterio artístico, ético y moral su irrefrenable saciedad de rating. Con la cobertura del “gran show”, la creación de Marcelo Tinelli ya ni siquiera trata de ocultar su única pretensión de generar disputas y conflictos entre los participantes de un supuesto concurso de baile, para exponer durante varias horas diarias toda clase de miserias humanas (basta saber que cuando Baila Argentina no funcionó en audiencia, el reality federal fue abandonado a su suerte). Todo con el aval de un maquiavélico Tinelli, que detrás de su cara de sorprendido y desconcertado por lo que ocurre en el programa esconde la mente de quien digita cada cosa que pasa y no pone límite alguno con tal de hipnotizar televidentes.

Este año, el contenido de ShowMatch alimentó casi 24 horas diarias de TV entre sus derivados (Este es el show, Sábado show, Intrusos, Viviana Canosa, Infama, AM, Mañaneras, Demoliendo teles, RSM, etcétera), siendo tema de seguimiento obligado por ciclos periodísticos, de entretenimientos y de chimentos de los diferentes canales de aire privados. Los 30 puntos de rating diarios de ShowMatch hicieron que nadie pudiese –o no quisiese– evitar referirse al programa más visto de la TV desde hace dos décadas. Esa exposición continua de culos y tetas, chistes de mal gusto y discusiones vulgares entre los participantes hicieron que en este 2010 que se va Tinelli cumpliera el sueño de tener un canal propio. Sólo que no tuvo una única frecuencia sino que su “programación” se coló a toda hora en cualquiera de los cuatro canales de aire privados, donde hasta El Trece (Este es el show) y Telefe (Zapping diario) se resignaron e incluyeron en sus grillas diarias programas que se hacen eco de los conflictos televisivos, en una fina separación con los programas de chimentos.

El bombardeo mediático de ShowMatch, entonces, digitó buena parte del consumo televisivo de 2010. Las discusiones de poca monta y mal gusto entre Ricardo Fort, Graciela Alfano, Aníbal Pachano y las hermanas Escudero fueron la comidilla de una industria que se rindió a los pies de un ciclo para el que el baile sirve de excusa para mostrar lo peor de la condición humana. ¡Si hasta hubo dos galas en las que de tanta discusión sin sentido pero cargadas de insultos los participantes no llegaron a bailar! Así, el estudio caliente de ShowMatch se erigió como una suerte de ágora pública para que su fauna disertara sobre el HIV o la violencia de género con la misma liviandad con la que discuten la calificación de un baile, sin considerar que todos ellos –lamentablemente– se convirtieron en modelos sociales a partir de su sobreexposición mediática.

Basta cotejar la escasa audiencia que ficciones como Alguien que me quiera, Botineras, Contra las cuerdas y la recientemente levantada Caín & Abel cosecharon diariamente en el prime time durante este año para tomar conciencia de que la tinellización de la televisión consolidó un registro que determina las preferencias de la audiencia. En este momento de la TV, la disposición de los televidentes a seguir en el tiempo historias que requieren de cierta complejidad, y con un tratamiento alejado a la industria del efecto en continuado, parece no ser la de hace algunos años, cuando las ficciones competían entre sí para ser el programa más visto. El abrupto final por bajo rating de Caín & Abel, una telenovela de historia densa, con actuaciones brillantes, visual y musicalmente atractiva, es una señal de alerta sobre el estado de la televisión. Tinelli y una industria que funcionó bajo su sombra lo hicieron.

En este panorama, es coherente que la ficción más vista del año haya sido Malparida. Luego de que Alguien que me quiera no funcionara como se esperaba y dejara el horario de las 21.30 para pasar a emitirse a las 19, el “Plan B” diseñado por Adrián Suar para reemplazar al éxito de Valientes tuvo la sensibilidad de captar las preferencias de un público adormecido y programar un culebrón hecho y derecho. Con una historia de entretenimiento básico, que no le genera al televidente reflexión ni identificación alguna, y con el protagónico de una Juana Viale que deshonra con su actuación a grandes intérpretes del género, Malparida promedió los 22 puntos diarios y satisfizo las necesidades de El Trece, que está a punto de ganar el año en el rating.

Planillas aparte, lo mejor de la ficción estuvo dado por los unitarios. El Bicentenario del comienzo del proceso independentista del país sirvió como plataforma para que la pantalla chica recuperara uno de los géneros que había dejado en el olvido: el de la ficción histórica. A través del ciclo Lo que el Tiempo nos Dejó, la producción de Underground para Telefe contó momentos y hechos de la historia argentina del siglo XX en seis telefilms irreprochables desde los rubros técnicos (la ambientación de época, el vestuario y la fotografía estuvieron a la altura de las circunstancias), amén de algunos maniqueísmos en el guión, tal vez propios de la dificultad que representa plasmar historias complejas en 40 minutos. La otra propuesta interesante del año fue Para vestir santos, el unitario que Pol-ka realiza para El Trece (culmina el miércoles, a las 22.45), que no sólo volvió a poner en pantalla las credenciales de la productora en el género, sino que además se animó a jugar con el musical dentro de su estructura dramática, sin perder encanto.

Aunque se haya estrenado en 2009, la finalización de Ciega a citas a finales de mayo requiere de un comentario especial. La comedia de Rosstoc con la que Canal 7 volvió a incluir en su programación la ficción nacional demostró que una historia bien contada y actuada, en la que cada engranaje se pone al servicio del producto, puede atraer a un público no habituado a sintonizar la emisora estatal. Nominada al Emmy Internacional, la telenovela surgida de un blog supo armonizar el mundo de Internet y el de la TV en su propuesta, con una coherencia en su armado que culminó con un especial acorde con su origen, en el que el público votó al mejor de los tres finales posibles para la historia protagonizada por Muriel Santa Ana y Rafael Ferro. Es justo señalar que, en contrapartida, la segunda temporada de Todos contra Juan no le dio tantas alegrías a la productora de Gastón Pauls, que a mediados de año cerró sus puertas por una supuesta estafa del socio Alejandro Suaya.

Periodismo sin maquillaje
Envuelto en la contienda político-mediática que asomó su potencialidad en el debate sobre la Resolución 125, y que terminó de hacer eclosión a partir de la decisión del Gobierno de enviar al Congreso la Ley de Servicios de Comunicación Audiovisual, actualmente en vigencia, el periodismo televisivo atravesó en 2010 una etapa en la que las máscaras de las que se valían muchos periodistas y medios se fueron cayendo en la misma proporción que lo hacía su credibilidad. Si hasta no hace mucho para que algo fuera verdad debía salir en la TV, en la actualidad los televidentes han aprendido que el periodismo objetivo, independiente, no existe como entidad pura, impermeable a pensamientos e intereses políticos, sociales, económicos y/o culturales. Este fue el año en el que, por convicciones propias o por intereses empresariales, al periodismo televisivo no le quedó otra que proceder a cara descubierta.

El programa que metió el dedo en la llaga y revolucionó el medio fue 6, 7, 8, que aunque está al aire desde 2009 fue en este año cuando consolidó desde la pantalla estatal su lugar de “tema de conversación en la opinión pública”, multiplicando su mensaje a través del regreso de Duro de domar y de TVR, ciclos también producidos por PPT. Con una línea editorial abierta y orgullosamente oficialista, 6, 7, 8 puso negro sobre blanco sobre quién es quién en el periodismo actual, analizando el discurso mediático que se propaga ante cada tema de interés. El programa conducido por Luciano Galende asume hoy un protagonismo vital y activo dentro de la política, que incluso trasciende los límites televisivos (sus fieles seguidores han llegado a organizar manifestaciones públicas por diferentes causas). Valiéndose de material de archivo e invitados afines a su línea editorial, 6, 7, 8 abrió la posibilidad de que haya un debate periodístico-político en la TV argentina que no se da puertas adentro, sino intracanales o intraprogramas. Por eso es un programa que marcó un antes y un después dentro del género televisivo.

Acorde con la TV del efecto continuo que se consolidó en estos últimos años, abundan en el medio programas como Calles salvajes, GPS o Policías en acción, ciclos “periodísticos” que –al igual que Tinelli– se nutren de las miserias de la vida cotidiana de los más necesitados sin espacio para el análisis, con la sola finalidad de mostrar imágenes de alto impacto. Que en este escenario, en el que desde los noticieros o algunos periodísticos se elige retratar lo peor, haya un espacio como 6, 7, 8 para reflexionar sobre diversas temáticas de interés social –más allá de la posición política a la que se adhiera– no es poco. El arribo a Canal 9 de Bajada de línea, con la credibilidad, coherencia y trayectoria de Víctor Hugo Morales sumó al periodismo televisivo a un interlocutor válido desde el punto de vista de la honestidad intelectual desde la que dice lo que piensa.

En la era del periodismo subjetivo explícito, los programas de archivo que otrora buscaban furcios e inocuos errores hoy son el espacio elegido por las emisoras para reafimar su posición sobre algún tema o desacreditar al otro. Cada uno con su estilo, con mayor o menor grado de exposición de su línea editorial, TVR, Zapping y Demoliendo teles funcionan como brazos mediáticos armados de una idea política o de una idea empresarial. Si anteriormente el valor de un programa del género descansaba en el nivel de hallazgos televisivos que retransmitía, mostrando aquello que se escapaba a los ojos de los televidentes, ahora su sentido de ser pasa exclusivamente por ser difusores acríticos de programas de la casa, o de propagadores críticos de ciclos ajenos.

Entre la TV basura a toda hora y el fin del supuesto periodismo objetivo, entre la persecución de rating como único parámetro válido para decidir la suerte de un ciclo y la autorreferencialidad como caja de resonancia siempre a mano, la TV de 2010 termina con la esperanza de que el próximo año la pantalla chica apueste a propuestas diversas y originales. Por un 2011 en el que vuelva a primar en la TV el criterio artístico... ¡Salud!

Take a good long look at Christina4U's sexy bod...
Hi Guys, I'm Christina from Canada. Looking for a sweet naive cam girl to show you her cute ass ??? if so don't read any more, I'm not that person ..check out the other 300+ models...and save yourself some time..Have fun!!! If you are still reading at this point,I'm getting very interested in you as a person... I hope you are someone looking to achieve their ultimate XXX sexual fantasy and experience something you only dreamed of with a highly intelligent woman who understands the complex needs and desires of both males and females . Firstly..a little info about me...You will find I have two personalites. 1.I'm not your average cam girl, I have my own marketing business and its success gives me total financial independence. Because I don't have to answer to a man ..I slowly developed the urge and desire to become a Dom Mistress and to explore the complex world of fetishes ... I discovered it actualy sexually excited me. Having power over men, I now have many submissive slaves...I also found it both exciting and stimulating to meet people with foot fetishes,leg fetishes,and new and unusual sexual preferences. I personally don't believe that the word fetish should exist,just because someone gets sexual gratification from something that is different from what society tells us is standard, should not make it a fetish. With this in mind, if you have any type of fantasy you wish to explore, please let me be the one to explore it with you...the more complex the better ..I'm very understanding. New to the world of domination/Slaves??? no problem,lets get together ..I love new slaves and will train you,and help you discover more about yourself. 2.Not into domination/fetish or slaves..???? I also get a huge turn on from roleplays..such as sweet schoolgirl,nurse etc, ..If it makes you cum..I enjoy it...I find pleasing a guy very satisfying read more for the types of uniforms etc I have available. Questions/Answers/Show Info I get a lot of the same questions asked so I thought I would answer a few here to help you. 1.Show Cost: My pvt shows cost $4.99 (I don't do nude chat as I'm not into multiple shared chat..I prefer personal 1on1. I have all the latest eqipment inc the most advanced cam on this site..it can pan/tilt and zoom,so I can move around the room and zoom into the live action just for you..yea!

          Schäubles Anti-Geldwäsche-Einheit ist einsatzbereit   
Berlin (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Die neue Anti-Geldwäsche-Einheit von Bundesfinanzminister Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) ist einsatzbereit. Die "Financial Intelligence Unit" (FIU) unter dem Dach des Zoll umfasst zum Start 100 Daten-Experten, Verfassungsschützer, Wirtschaftsprüfer und Banker, schreibt die "Bild" in ihrer Samstagausgabe. Bei der Einheit treffen ab sofort täglich mehrere hundert Verdachtsmeldungen ein, jährlich sollen es rund 40.000 werden.

Die Aufgabe: illegale Geldströme aufspüren. Laut Ministerium werden pro Jahr in Deutschland mehr als 100 Milliarden Euro "gewaschen". Geld aus Drogen- und Menschenhandel, das anschließend z.B. an Immobilienmakler, Autohändler oder in Kunstgeschäfte fließt. Die Einheit steht unter der Leitung des bisherigen Kartellamts-Chefs, Andreas Bardong. "Wir haben es zu tun mit Organisierter Kriminalität, mit Korruption, mit Wirtschaftskriminalität. Aber genau so mit der Finanzierung von Terrorismus. Das ist das Umfeld, in dem wir uns bewegen", so Bardong zu "Bild".

Nota del editor...

El Señor amante tiene una y otra vez nos recordó sobre la práctica de servicio, todo el tiempo. Hanuman representa el principio dual - Hombre Mein Ram, Haath Mein Kaam - por un lado, hay que recordar el nombre de Dios, y por otro lado hacemos la obra de Dios. Swami ha llegado a decir que no tienen que estudiar las escrituras, no tenemos que efectúe todos los peregrinajes, ni tenemos que realizar grandes penitencias y austeridades. El nos dice que simplemente recordar al Señor y hacer el servicio a los demás, lo que nos redimir y dar paz siempre duradero. 

el mensaje de Swami a la juventud Sai alrededor del mundo esta semana:

"Sólo el tiempo que uno puede servir a los demás con sus manos, el cuerpo y la mente, uno debe vivir. Cuando se es joven, todas sus facultades son fuertes. La mente es aguda e inteligente, y el corazón está lleno de entusiasmo y pureza, lote de trabajo debe ser hecho. a medida que avanza la edad, las manos se vuelven débiles, lo cual es natural. en ese punto en el tiempo, con una cabeza que habría ganado mucha experiencia y conocimiento del mundo, y un corazón que se habría vuelto más y más compasivo y lleno de amor, aún tiene que participar en el servicio a los demás. a medida que envejece más, cuando ambas manos y la mente no pueden ser capaces de prestar un servicio, un corazón lleno de amor aún debe ser capaz de servir a otros. no hay excusa por no participar en algún tipo de servicio. Hasta el último respiro, uno debe comprometerse es Seva! un ejemplo para los demás. en cuanto a usted, los demás deben aprender!"

YOGA5Pro不出意外地配备了指纹识别器。整体视觉效果极具冲击力。这不仅带来了强烈的视觉冲击力,虽然依旧不算多出色,YOGA5ProB面的升级可以说相当惊艳。同时很好的兼顾了便携性。也获得了大家一致的认可。齐乐国际IntelCorei5-7200U处理器、8GBDDR4内存以及256GBPCIESSD加身,用户可以真正享受到“一按即付”的安全与快捷。95mm,这不禁让人想到许多彰显身体柔软度的经典瑜伽动作。参考价格:9499元整体外观方面,高冷范儿十足?

翻转、多模使用无疑是其一贯的两个元素,但相比单一TypeC接口的MacBook,尤其是键程方面很难做到令人满意。相对较长的键程以及较强的反馈力调校,操控性向来是轻薄本的软肋。三边窄边框是YOGA5Pro另外一个值得称赞的地方,不进行过多修饰的A面,编辑点评:联想独具匠心的将WIFI天线内置于表链转轴之中,这也是目前颇受大家所推崇的格调。YOGA翻译过来就是瑜伽,此次YOGA5Pro采用一体化全铝材质打造而成,硬件配置:IntelCorei5-7200U/8GB/512GBSSD/13.YOGA5Pro采用英特尔SGX安全可信平台架构,作为一款定位于高端的产品,推荐机型:联想YOGA5Pro在这一代YOGA5Pro。性能部分,这一次的YOGA5Pro在屏幕边框部分的处理显然要更进一步。其首次采用了三边极窄边框设计?

这让我想到了之前的小新Air13以及小新Air13Pro,这部分不得不做出。而YOGA3Pro极具创造性表链式转轴设计将YOGA提到了一个新的高度,实际敲击感受相当不错。9英寸/1920×1080讲真,YOGA5Pro机身左侧提供2个TypeC接口。

给人感觉足够简约、干净,YOGA5Pro沿袭了联想一贯略带曲面的键帽设计,在支付安全性方面,并符合中国银联生物识别安全认证,无疑为它提供了强有力的支撑,但随着近几年笔记本产品越做越薄,其往往难以有太大的发挥空间,侧边宽度仅为4.使得YOGA5Pro机身整体性表现的更加出色。碍于过于纤薄的机身厚度所限,除了我们解锁外YOGA5Pro同时是首款具备指纹安全支付功能的笔记本。值得一提的是,齐乐国际外部扩展能力的重要性不言而喻,还是让人感觉很多。齐乐国际右侧提供1个USB3.YOGA5Pro走类似于无印良品一样的寡淡风格,很好兼顾了轻薄与机身坚固度。完全可以轻松应付日常办公需要。0接口(支持关机充电)以及/麦克风接口。回顾联想YOGA系列的诸多产品?

          Believing, l'incubatore italiano di imprese innovative   
ecco l'ultima intervista rilasciata al portale Ufficiarredati

Innovazione e creatività sono i primi biglietti da visita di Gianfranco Chiarappa: in questa intervista ricca di acuti spunti di analisi, emergono poi passione e intelligenza di un imprenditore che sa guardare oltre i confini.

Gianfranco Chiarappa, lei oltre ad essere parte attiva di Uffici Arredati, è ideatore e proprietario di Believing, un incubatore di imprese. Di che cosa si tratta?

Believing è un’idea molto originale nel campo dell’innovazione di impresa.
Sviluppiamo vari progetti imprenditoriali altamente innovativi mettendo a disposizione per ognuno servizi e capitali iniziali, affidando al management la gestione del progetto.
Realizziamo il processo di start up portando avanti contemporaneamente più imprese, in settori diversi tra loro.
Quindi diverse organizzazioni in un unico contenitore, il Believing.
I progetti su cui stiamo attualmente lavorando vanno dal settore informatico, all’agroalimentare, ai media, ai servizi alle imprese.
Le nostre idee non provengono solo dal nostro centro, ma perlustriamo anche tutto il territorio italiano per cercare nuove idee e nuovi imprenditori.

Quanto dura, indicativamente, un periodo di incubazione?

Dipende. Lavoriamo attraverso uno strumento che si chiama: il “portafoglio dell’innovazione”, ovvero una cartella virtuale all’interno della quale vi sono le idee, i progetti e nuove ventures.
Le idee allo stato “grezzo” vengono inserite dallo staff di Believing o portate dall’esterno.
Quelle meritevoli potranno essere messe alla prova nel mercato.
Realizziamo una prima sperimentazione che può durare 6-12 mesi; possiamo così trarre indicazioni importanti che ci consentono di continuare il progetto, o addirittura di decidere di sospenderlo.
Infatti se il presupposto base viene a mancare si può sospendere il progetto attuando una strategia di uscita soft dal mercato.
I progetti che superano la fase “beta” passano poi a livello di impresa, ovvero allo stato di nuove ventures.
In questa fase si cercano i partner finanziari per aumentare e capitalizzare le risorse e si determinano i premi di partecipazione per il management.

In una sua affermazione leggo:’ Per dare il meglio di sé è necessario che ognuno trovi la propria missione di vita. La mia missione è quella di aiutare individui e organizzazioni a trovare la loro. Guidare le persone verso traguardi impossibili, vivere gli insegnamenti cristiani, creare valore aggiunto per l’umanità, far nascere un mondo al quale gli altri desiderino appartenere..’
Insegnamenti cristiani , uniti alla storia millenaria della sua regione e innovazione; tradizione e innovazione sono concetti coniugabili nel concetto di impresa?

Sicuramente. Le imprese non possono più lavorare solo per il profitto.
C’è sempre una rinnovata attenzione all’etica di impresa, che significa anche rispetto per l’ambiente e sviluppo delle risorse umane della propria organizzazione.
Tuttavia se questi “temi” li si considera come leve di marketing con il solo scopo di un maggior guadagno, i risultati saranno di breve periodo.
L’impresa deve essere pensata come impresa sociale, capace di fare del bene, di migliorare il modo in cui la gente vive, pensa e lavora; accanto al profitto vi deve essere spazio anche per l’uomo.
L’impresa deve avere un’anima.

Il tempo gioca sempre a favore delle persone di grande intelligenza. Infatti a 29 anni lei è imprenditore e consulente a sua volta di imprese; intelligenza e, cos’altro la contraddistingue?

La passione verso l’impresa. La passione è contagiare gli altri. In Believing si respira l’entusiasmo e la passione proprio perché, spesso, sviluppiamo cose che vanno oltre la nostra immaginazione; stiamo costruendo una sorta di rivoluzione silenziosa.
La creatività non è solo fantasia,ma è porsi obiettivi e saperli realizzare; così la sua creatività ha giocato un ruolo fondamentale della creazione di questo business

Mi potrebbe dare una dimostrazione della sua creatività? Per esempio se avesse una bacchetta magica quale servizio o prodotto nuovo sul mercato crerebbe?

Quelli che già stiamo incubando ;-)
Believing Cube è uno di questi. E’ un business center innovativo, che offre ambienti di lavoro pronti per l’uso per mobile workers, microimprese e liberi professionisti.
Nella prima sede in Puglia mettiamo a disposizione Uffici arredati e attrezzati, Sale per riunioni, formazione e conferenze, showroom e servizi di domiciliazione che consentono di essere immediatamente operativi e flessibili nello sviluppare la propria impresa.
Tutto questo mettendo le persone e le idee presenti nel Cube in relazione tra di loro.
Insediarsi nel Believing Cube significa coniugare la flessibilità delle piccole organizzazioni con le economie di scala tipiche delle grandi. Di qui la nostra partnership con ‘Uffici Arredati’.

Della classe imprenditoriali italiana si parla di mancanza di responsabilità sociale, di povertà morale e poca innovazione.Lei che gestisce e sviluppa progetti d’impresa cosa ne pensa dell’attuale classe imprenditoriale?
L’imprenditore italiano in cosa è carente?

Penso che vi siano ‘’eccellenze’’ che sono però nascoste dalla massa; la situazione in Italia è un po’ particolare.
L’Università attuale non forma l’imprenditore tipico italiano, bensì forma manager con un bagaglio tecnico applicabile in contesti di medio-grandi imprese.
L’ Italia invece è fatta di microimprese, piccole aziende con 3/4 dipendenti, i cui imprenditori hanno fatto sul campo il loro “Master in Business Administration”.
L’imprenditore italiano è un imprenditore che si rimbocca le maniche, operativo e pratico, che applica la creatività tutta italiana alla risoluzione dei problemi, ogni giorno.

L’impresa è l’oggettivazione delle capacità intellettuali e morali di chi l’ha creata, di chi la fa fiorire, di chi la governa.
Invece per lei, l’imprenditore è la propria azienda o ha la propria azienda?

E’ la propria azienda; io poi la vivo come estensione dei miei valori.Believing nasce infatti dopo un periodo di profonda riflessione, per questo mi è facile identificarmi in questo progetto.
Infatti è necessario che le persone conoscano il mio spirito,in modo da considerare positivamente poi le iniziative imprenditoriali che partono da Believing.
Personalmente a livello di impresa, mi ispiro a modelli che non sono italiani, come Stelios di Easyjet o Richard Branson di Virgin, che riuniscono al loro interno progetti imprenditoriali diversi fra loro, accomunati da una Brand che li rappresenta.

Ad un professionista come lei, non posso non chiedere se ha dei suggerimenti per il network di ‘Uffici Arredati’..

La grande possibilità con Uffici Arredati è aprire il mercato di coloro che sono mobile workers e delle micro-imprenditorialità che necessitano di spazi.Infatti se si riuscirà a far comprendere i vantaggi economici e relazionali che derivano dall’affidarsi ad un business center, si aprirà un mercato enorme. Quindi vedo come Uffici Arredati come portatore di soluzioni logistiche per le imprese.

          Santorum or Paul ?   

I (and dozens of other folks) received a political endorsement from a very nice, well-meaning woman from my traditional Mass group this week. She was excited that Rick Santorum was talking publicly about the problem of birth control, and she asked us all to support someone who “shared our values.” Her Santorum plea intrigued me—I haven’t seen a faithful Catholic run for highest office, except for Buchannan, who was in a way “before my time”—but I’m still not in Santorum’s camp, to say the least. The Ron Paul sticker is still on my car.

Anyways, I spent a couple of hours crafting a response to her endorsement. I haven’t “stretched my polemical legs” in quite a while, so I’m grateful she gave me the opportunity and the inspiration. Since I was moderately satisfied with how my response turned out, I’m converting it to a blog post. Here goes:

Santorum's personal rejection of contraception is admirable, of course, and it's somewhat in contradiction to...say...Ron Paul, who--as an obstetrician in the 70s and 80s--presumably prescribed contraceptives and performed sterilizations. I'm making that assumption because he's a Protestant, and if he hadn't wrote scrips for the pill, NARAL and Planned Parenthood would surely have found out and painted him as an extremist by now.

But I don't think Santorum's personal position on contraception...even in contrast to someone like Paul who must have personally promoted it (whether he knew better or not)...is enough to compel my vote. Why not? Obviously, someone like Ron Paul isn’t consistently pro-life. But at the most basic level, Santorum isn't consistently "pro-life" either. Santorum’s "pro-life" personal views didn't get in the way of his politics when it would have mattered most: his support of Arlen Specter in the Pennsylvania Senate primary a few years ago. When Santorum could have backed another pro-lifer, Pat Toomey, and tipped the scales, he didn't. Instead, he supported Specter, who was NOT ONLY a pro-abort who controlled the Senate Judiciary Committee (where the best pro-life judicial nominees need not apply, even in the GOP's best days), but was also a turncoat who switched to the Democratic party a couple years later. Every observer I've read agrees that if Santorum had stuck to principle and stumped for Toomey, Toomey would have won (instead of lost by 1.7%), we'd have had a better Judiciary Committee, hence better federal judges, and the Dems wouldn't have had a filibuster-proof majority in the next go-round. (BTW, Toomey did beat Specter the next time and go to the senate after Santorum lost his own seat to a Democrat!)

And really, the issue of outlawing contraception in national politics...it doesn't simply matter, and Santorum won’t pursue it. I'm not saying that it shouldn't matter. It should, but it doesn't. Maybe some day it will at least matter at the state level. It's like nationally outlawing all pornography or buggery or usury or no-fault divorce. They are all admirable goals but candidly, they are not achievable on a national level at our present time and place. Although the link between abortion and all that bad stuff I mentioned above is obvious to us traditional Catholics, most non-Catholics (and heck, perhaps most novus ordo Catholics) aren't intellectually or spiritually equipped to deal with the link right now. We laymen should work one-on-one to convert people away from contraception, and our Bishops and priests should preach against it. However, too much public talk of outlawing contraception by a national political candidate at the present moment will be counterproductive. It will be exploited by his pro-abort enemies and slow down all our efforts to stop the greatest and "most fixable" of these evils...abortion. On this issue, we will only succeed if we tackle only one thing at a time.

The lady said Santorum “shares our values.” Well, leaving the pro-life issue and moving on to look at Santorum's other values? I honestly can't say they're the same as mine:

FIRST Santorum's an interventionist, looking to keep a huge United States military presence throughout the world--running up more debt, getting more American boys killed, and making more foreign enemies. For Santorum, patriotism is about geopolitical power. For me? Nope, patriotism is about loving ones’ land for what it is, not loving one’s government for the power it can project over other governments. Patriotism for me doesn't include going from one undeclared war to another….especially when the next one will be against a huge, prosperous country with a large, well-organized and educated populace that can really fight back—i.e., Iran. Nor does it involve the same bankrupting globalist busybody strategy as that other recently-collapsed empire: Great Britain.


SECOND, Santorum loves Israel--a state and a society which is absolutely hostile to the Church, and which is the very cause of that the "Islamo-Fascism" that Sean Hannity and Billy O’Reilly and the other neoconservative blowhards denounce. I, on the other hand, recognize that Israel is not a reliable ally, and that Moslems don't hate us for our freedom--they hate us because guys like Santorum vote to send Israel the guns and tanks and planes (and bombs marked "Made in the USA") that are used to kill their co-religionists, or if they’re lucky, merely expel them from their ancestral homes and leave them fenced in and starving.


THIRD, Santorum also believes in centralization of government, for example, federalizing education and doubling the number of education bureaucrats (99% of whom probably hate homeschooling). I adhere to the Catholic principle of subsidiarity--that is, the exercise of power by the lowest level capable of doing so (the family, the local church, the community, the state, and only where absolutely necessary, by the feds).


FOURTH, Santorum loves the police state, having voted for all sorts of restrictions on our ability to travel and communicate, and all sorts of new mechanisms for monitoring the daily activities of people in the United States. I value freedom of movement and (in my 30 or 40 flights a year) recognize that the TSA goons, the humiliating porn scanners, and the other monitoring of our activities don't keep us "secure"--they are simply part of a subtle retraining US residents to be sheepish and compliant subjects of the totalitarian state.


Neoconservatives like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich love the general growth in government as much as "moderates" like Mitt Romney and liberals like Hillary Clinton and Barry Obama. While their rhetoric is couched slightly differently, all of them want more government, more federal intrusion on our daily life, more perks for their friends (be they Obama's Chicago Daly Machine wonks or Mitt's Goldman Sachs pals or Santorum's military contractor donors or Newt's insurance company lobbying clients). Santorum won't make it easier for the Church to pursue its mission. He won't make it easier for faithful Catholics to raise holy families. He won't make it easier for our boys to find good jobs. He won't create the conditions necessary to rebuild Christian culture in the United States. And of course, he won't outlaw contraception. He has so many "backs to scratch" that he probably won't even get around to nominating judges that will unwind the nonsensical web of Constitutional "privacy" jurisprudence that prevents states from regulating contraception, prohibiting abortion, and discouraging buggery.

A friend of mine who’s since moved out of state—a very well-formed guy--once recommended Frank Sheed's book, Society and Sanity. Sheed is on solid Catholic ground, and he's an eloquent apologist. One of the central points of the book is a consideration of Christ's answer to the Pharisees, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's...." He approaches modern politics (circa 1960, I think) in the form of two questions about government which should be distinct in everyone's mind, but which are often muddled...they are paraphrased by me as "Who gets to be Caesar?" and "What things are Caesar's?" which I'll further rephrase as "How far does Caesar's authority extend?" My friend also pointed me to where St. Thomas Aquinas addresses the same issues, but I found Sheed to be much more accessible.

So here we are in 2012: this is an election which should be more about the second question than it is the first. All but one of the candidates is focused entirely on the first question. They all want me to believe that if they're Caesar, I can trust them because they share my values, and they can do more for me, and they can do it better. The organs of the federal government will be more efficient and stronger, but they’ll serve my interests. Only one of the candidates has anything substantive to say about that second question, and only one wants you to think about the limits of Caesar's reach. And unfortunately, it ain't Catholic Rick Santorum. It's Protestant Ron Paul.

In a field of imperfect candidates (all either statists or liberals), Ron Paul not only opposes abortion, but he is the one who is the most likely to REALLY give new momentum to the life movement (perhaps more momentum than he himself intends). He'll install judges who read the Constitution as it is (imperfect though it may be) and throw out the reasoning in cases like Roe and Doe and even Carpenter (the case that invented the "right to privacy" that prevented states from regulating contraceptives) and Lawrence (the case that prevents states from outlawing buggery). He’s not touting a huge program of federal prohibitions in their place like some pro-life lobbyists want, but really, such a prohibition is a pipe dream. Returning the life issues to the states (where the battle can be fought and won at least in most places over time) is really the best we can hope for—and the best we should hope for. The several states, after all, are where the plenary power to punish offenses against life and property properly rest.


Also, even though Paul's economic positions aren't perfect, there isn't a Rerum Novarum candidate to compare him to. His Austrian economic theory (BTW, at least he can speak intelligently about economics--the other candidates can't) is a much more sound basis for economic policy than Obama's soft socialism or Romney's Goldman Sachs TARP capitalism or Santorum's military industrial cronyism. In the absence of a candidate with a workable Distributivist program (if there is such a thing), quoting or at least plagiarizing Hillaire Belloc, Pope Leo XIII, and GK Chesterton, Paul's the one candidate who will at least redirect the country in a general direction that could ultimately be refined to a Catholic economic order.


As for militarism and interventionism—Paul’s obviously not a jingo. And as for subsidiarity--that big question about the scope of Caesar's authority--it's clear that a Ron Paul administration will have a smaller federal government--leaving more room in our society for families, the Church, communities, and states to operate and seek the Good on their own. I don't think anyone would argue that point.

The restoration (or rather reformation) of American culture on sound Catholic principles won't be easy. Barring a huge cataclysm, it won't happen in my lifetime. But whenever and however it happens (if it happens at all), it can only come back if we clear away the choking roots of our out-of-control, anti-Catholic, antagonistic federal government, and leave some open ground for the shoots of a civil society where Catholic principles to grow and flourish. A Catholic Humanae Vitae candidate (or…for the pre-Vatican II crowd…a Casti Conubii candidate) who otherwise promises more central government control of society, more war, and more spending, isn't going to do that. But a Protestant obstetrician will do it, even if he may not really appreciated what he was doing with his prescription pad a few decades ago. Ultimately Ron Paul is not the best possible candidate, but this is a multiple-choice test, not fill-in-the-blank.


As I said before, the question is "Who understands what things are really Caesar's?" In each case, Ron Paul is the answer that comes closest to the correct one.


          Curmudgeon’s ten minute fix to all the fiscal problems of the national government, the unjust tax system, and the economy, too….   

OK, before I begin, suspend disbelief.


Let’s make some assumptions…assumptions that you and certainly I don’t take for granted.



  • First, let’s assume that this is an active blog that some people still have on their readers. Let’s then assume for a minute that this is an appropriate place to rant about straight-up Washington politics.


  • Let’s assume that the national government is at least legitimate in principle, or could be legitimate if it stuck to the powers and limitations in the written Constitution.


  • To get even more theoretical, let’s assume that there was a group of individuals who had the intelligence, moral integrity and will to truly reform things for the common good.


  • Let’s assume those people got past the gatekeepers and rose to power.


  • Finally (since we’re already in the province of the absurd) let’s assume that I, the Kansas City Curmudgeon, was the leader of this little cabal of right thinking men.

The Curmudgeon Cabal doesn’t have silver bullet to immediately kill the serious moral and cultural monsters that haunt our society. Admittedly, those moral and cultural problems are far more important than taxes, spending and the economy. There just isn’t a quick fix--except perhaps outlawing television, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. What’s been destroyed since the 1920s (or since the French Revolution, or the days of William of Occam) will need to be rebuilt over generations, not months or years.


But there IS a quick fix to the temporal, material problem, and the fix might actually be a first step (or a second step, after fervent prayer and mortification) in addressing the moral/cultural problems. The quick fix is what I’ll call the Curmudgeon Reform Act of 2011. There are 5 elements—so far:



  1. Replace the Social Security scheme with a real savings and disability plan.

  2. Institute a low, simplified tax on ordinary income and long-term capital gains.

  3. Retain or increase taxes on short term speculation.

  4. Restore revenue generating tariffs on imports and adjust excise taxes to cover certain public goods

  5. Institute a new Culture, Welfare and Education tax (“CWE”) that will never be collected.

Here are the details:

1. Replace the Social Security scheme with a real savings and disability plan. Eliminate payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare). Instead, require, for the first ___ years after the elimination, that every wage earner put 10% of his income in a privately managed, competitive but somewhat regulated welfare plan that provides disability and retirement income. Create a self-funded pension insurance program among the welfare plan providers to ensure at least a subsistence pension. Allow voluntary participation in Social Security and Medicare for people over 45 or so. Continue the employer-side taxes for a short while to help fund the folks currently on, or about to go on, the old system. Eventually, as the people’s savings ethic is restored and our charitable infrastructure is rebuilt, we can eliminate the mandatory savings plan. Or maybe we can’t.


2. Institute a low, simplified tax on ordinary income and long-term capital gains. Reduce taxes on ordinary income and long-term capital gains to a flat 5% or so on all income above the poverty level for each family. No deductions. Simplify the business tax rules so it’s easy to get to a net taxable income, and eliminate things like tax credits, accelerated depreciation, and the like. Tax every individual person and every limited liability entity (corporations, LLCs, LPs and LLPs) that function as a separate legal person. (Yes, this is double taxation, but at 5% / 10%, it’s a reasonable price to pay for the privilege of doing business in a non-recourse entity).


3. Retain or increase high taxes on short term speculation. Keep taxes on short term capital gains at a high level. Let's say 25%. Disallow the write-offs of short term capital losses. Yes, this would be said to “punish” short term investors. Why? Because they’re not really investors; they’re traders. We’ve gone from a society of investors to a society of speculators. Some speculation is necessary to ensure liquidity in our markets and to reward, in some degree, risk taking (that is, taking risks with ones’ own resources). However, high taxes on speculators will hopefully realign our capital markets.


4. Restore revenue generating tariffs on imports and adjust excise taxes to cover certain public goods. Institute modest tariffs on all imported goods. Not 40% or 50%. More like 5% or 10%. The tarriff should be a revenue mechanism, not a protectionist one. We won’t need protectionism if the Curmudgeon reforms are in place. Once again, it will pay to actually make things in the USA. Also, adjust excise taxes on things like motor fuel, as well as fees, to fully recover the cost of providing public goods like highways, so the taxes and the cost of those public goods are balanced and self-supporting.



5. Institute a new Culture, Welfare and Education tax (“CWE”) that will never be collected. Here’s the capstone of the plan: In lieu of all federal welfare, cultural and education programs, the Curmudgeon Cabal will institute a 10% tax on all income above the poverty level for the support of culture, welfare and education (sounds suspiciously like a tithe, doesn’t it?). The beauty of the CWE tax is that if it works, it will never be collected. We will allow a 100% tax credit (not a deduction…a dollar-for-dollar credit) for donations made to qualified charitable organizations. You know….organizations which are now referred to as 501(c)(3)’s. Although we hate bureaucracy and regulation, we acknowledge that we’ll need a few rules about this. Organizations will be subject to some minor regulation, somewhat as they are now, in order to assure legitimacy. They’ll also be classified: the big categories will be (a) physical welfare/poverty, (b) religion, (c) the arts, (d) the environment, and (e) education. Moneys flowing to these organizations will rebuild the societal infrastructure that was in place before the New Deal and the Great Society. The beauty is that the taxpayer--not the government--will decide how to allocate those donations between categories and which organizations within the categories to support. The only substantial restriction on the taxpayer is that no more than half of that 10% tax can go to any one category. Overtime, churches can restore hospitals, private education, and the like. Communities can support the arts (hopefully a restoration of true art, and nothing involving the use of feces). The cost of higher education can come down for those who should pursue it. Private conservation groups can buy and preserve habitats. Yada Yada.


In Conclusion


Now, I didn’t say The Curmudgeon Reform Plan wasn’t crazy. It is.


I didn’t say it would cure instantly the cultural malaise. It won’t.


I didn’t say it would bring about the Catholic confessional state. It can’t.


The plan (and the radical cuts in the federal and state government that go along with it) it be vigorously opposed by the greater DC real estate industry--not just the machine of government itself. The housing and office markets in DC, Montgomery County, Maryland and Fairfax County, Virginia will be devastated as out-of-work bureaucrats leave to find private sector jobs in the Heartland. But heck, maybe it will help the real estate market in Detroit?


All and all, the Curmudgeon Reform Plan can’t be worse that what we’re doing now. And, since this is a sorta, kinda Catholic blog (or at least a blog by a Catholic), I point out that it will be good for Holy Mother Church. I eagerly await the USCCB endorsement.



OK, I’ve already thought of one necessary change. Five percent on ordinary income may be a pretty high rate, considering that President Curmudgeon will be eliminating the federal welfare system, reducing the military to its proper role national defense (instead of imperial domination), ending foreign aid, reinstituting modest revenue-producing tarriffs, and otherwise moving to a consumption-based tax system for roads, etc. Let’s make it 3%.



Cheers!

          Négocier à l’échelle du monde   
Ce colloque nous invite à réfléchir à une histoire économique et politique mais aussi intellectuelle et culturelle de la négociation. S’y verront traités aussi bien les rituels de négociation politique, la part qu’y jouent les langues en particulier, que les enjeux sociaux de négociation des identités et des pratiques, à travers les questions de genre ou de mariage. Le patrimoine sera un axe privilégié, de la constitution de collections à la perception de l’espace urbain comme territoire négocié à différentes échelles. L’exemple des transports sera appréhendé sous la forme des négociations internationales et de la tentative de fixation de normes technologiques. Enfin, une approche matérielle de ces pratiques de négociation sera au cœur des discussions.
          Son Of Fake News   
The AP follows CNN's lead:
This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris, and then alleged that some kind of impropriety happened as a result.

This is exactly the same mistake CNN made a week ago, when it alleged that Anthony Scaramucci—the founder of SkyBridge Capital and an associate and ally of President Donald Trump—held “meetings” with Russian investment fund leaders and was under investigation by the Senate Intelligence Committee and Treasury Department as a result.

A Breitbart News investigation uncovered that no such “meetings” took place, the Senate Intelligence Committee was not investigating the matter, and the Treasury Department had already—at the urging of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to now Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before Trump’s inauguration—looked into i
