16 Chrissy Teigen Swimsuit Photos That Are So Hot, You May Need to Call the Fire Department   

As a Sports Illustrated model, Chrissy Teigen knows a thing or two about working a swimsuit. Whether she's doing a photo shoot or enjoying a vacation with husband John Legend or simply hanging out poolside, the 31-year-old never misses the opportunity to show off her incredible body (can you blame her?). Sit down, grab a cold drink, and take a look at Chrissy's sexiest swimsuit moments.


          By 2100, Refugees Would Be the Most Populous Country on Earth   
Poverty and deadly wars are the major drivers of displacement.

The UN Refugee Agency has announced the new figures for the world’s displaced: 65.9 million. That means that 65.9 million human beings live as refugees, asylum seekers or as internally displaced people. If the refugees formed a country, it would be the 21st largest state in the world, just after Thailand (68.2 million) and just ahead of the United Kingdom (65.5 million). But unlike these other states, refugees have few political rights and no real representation in the institutions of the world.

The head of the UN Refugee Agency, Filippo Grandi, recently said that most of the displacement comes as a result of war. "The world seems to have become unable to make peace," Grandi said. "So you see old conflicts that continue to linger, and new conflicts erupting, and both produce displacement. Forced displacement is a symbol of wars that never end."

Few continents are immune from the harsh reality of war. But the epicenter of war and displacement is along the axis of the Western-driven global war on terror and resource wars. The line of displacement runs from Afghanistan to South Sudan with Syria in between. Eyes are on Syria, where the war remains hot and the tensions over escalation intensify daily. But there is as deadly a civil war in South Sudan, driven in large part by a ferocious desire to control the country’s oil. Last year, 340,000 people fled South Sudan for refugee camps in neighboring Uganda. This is a larger displacement than from Syria.

Poverty is a major driver of displacement. It is what moves hundreds of thousands of people to try and cross the Sahara Desert and then the Mediterranean Sea for European pastures. But most who try this journey meet a deadly fate. Both the Sahara and the Mediterranean are dangerous. This week, the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Niger rescued 600 migrants from the Sahara, although 52 did not survive.

A 22-year-old woman from Nigeria was among those rescued. She was on a pick-up truck with 50 people. They left Agadez for Libya. ‘We were in the desert for ten days,’ she says. "After five days, the driver abandoned us. He left us with all of our belongings, saying he was going to pick us up in a couple of hours. But he never did." Forty-four of the migrants died. The six who remained struggled to safety. ‘We had to drink our own pee to survive,’ she said.

Getting to Libya is hard enough. But being in Libya is perilous. Violence against vulnerable migrants inside Libya continues to occur. The IOM reports the presence in Libya of ‘slave markets.’ Migrants who make it across the Sahara into Libya have told investigators that they find themselves in these slave markets where they are bought to be taken to private prisons and put to work or else sold back to their families if they can raise the high ransom payments. UNICEF reports incidents of rape and violence against women and children in these private prisons. One 15-year-old boy said of his time in a private prison, "Here they treat us like chickens. They beat us, they do not give us good water and good food. They harass us. So many people are dying here, dying from disease, freezing to death."

Danger lurks on the sea as well. This year already IOM reports least 2,108 deaths in the sea between Libya and Italy. This is the fourth year in a row that IOM has counted over 2,000 deaths by mid-year. Over the past five years, this averages out to about 10 deaths a day. Libya, broken by NATO’s war in 2011, remains a gateway for the vulnerable from various parts of Africa, countries damaged by IMF policies and by warfare. There is no expectation that the numbers of those on the march will decrease.

In a recent paper in The Lancet (June 2017), Paul Spiegel, formerly of the UN Refugee Agency suggests that the "humanitarian system was not designed to address the types of conflicts that are happening at present." With over 65 million people displaced, the various institutions of the UN and of the NGO world are simply not capable of managing the crisis.

"It is not simply overstretched," Spiegel wrote of the humanitarian system, "it is no longer fit for purpose."

These are shattering words. One problem Spiegel identifies is the assumption that refugee flows are temporary, since wars will end at some point. What happens when wars and occupations are permanent? People either have to live for generations in refugee camps or they will seek, through dangerous passages, flight to the West. He gives the example of Iran, which absorbed over a million Afghan refugees without using the camp strategy. They simply allowed the Afghans into Iranian society and absorbed them by putting money into their various social schemes (such as education and health). Spiegel also points out that refugees must be part of the designing the process for humanitarian aid. These are good suggestions, but they are not going to be possible with the limited funds available for refugees and with the crisis level of activity that detains the humanitarian agencies.

Spiegel does not deal with one of the great problems for humanitarianism: the persistence of war and the theory that more war—or the current euphemism, security—is the answer to humanitarian crises. This January, over 1,000 people tried to scale the large barrier that divides Morocco from the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. Looking at that barrier, one is reminded of the idea that walls will somehow prevent migration, a view driven by President Donald Trump. Violence met the migrants, a mirror of the violence that was visited among migrants along the spinal cord of Eastern Europe last year. Walls, police forces and military interventions are all seductive to an imagination that forgets why people migrate and that they are human beings on the run with few other options. There is a view that security barriers and security forces will raise the price of migrant and deter future migrants. This is a silly illusion. Migration is dangerous already. That has not stopped anyone. More humane thinking is necessary.

It is important therefore that the UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed told a meeting on the Sahel on June 28 that the world leaders need to "avoid a disproportionate emphasis on security" when dealing with the multiple crises in the Sahara region and north of it. "No purely military solution" can work against transnational organized crime, violent extremism and terrorism, nor against poverty and hopelessness. Underlying causes are not being addressed, and indeed the surface reactions—to bomb more—only create more problems, not less.

In the July issue of Land Use Policy, professors Charles Geisler and Ben Currens estimate that by 2100 there will be 2 billion refugees as a result of climate change. These numbers are staggering. They are an inevitable future. By then, refugees will be the largest country on earth—nomads, seeking shelter from destruction of climate and capitalism, from rising seas and wars of greed.

          Naqvi, Rishi Kapoor inaugurate '8th Jagran Film Festival'   

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor here on Saturday inaugurated the "8th Jagran Film Festival", which will travel to 16 cities across India and showcase over 400 films.

The festival will feature a retrospective on Rishi's acclaimed films including "Do Dooni Char", "Chandni", "Bobby", "Kapoor & Sons" and a part of "Mera Naam Joker".

"I am thankful that they are showing my films. I have been working in the industry for last 45 years, but nobody has showcased a retrospective of my work. I am very humbled by this. They are showing my eight-and-a-half films. This includes eight full films and one part of 'Mera Naam Joker'," Rishi said.

Also present at the inaugural ceremony were actresses Divya Dutta and Tannishtha Chatterjee.

The eighth edition of the festival kick-started with the screening of Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor-starrer "The Fakir of Venice".

The Anand Surapur directorial tells the story of an Indian conman, who is hired to find a fakir who can bury himself in sand for an installation art project in Venice. He passes off a poor slum-dweller from Mumbai as the real thing, conning the European art world successfully.

The festival will pay a homage to late actors Vinod Khanna and Om Puri with the screenings of their films "Achanak" and "Mr. Kabaadi".

Speaking on the occasion, Naqvi said: "This is a memorable occasion as people who have taken art and films to each and every house are associated with this festival. I am happy that through this festival, social messages are being transmitted to small places across India via films."

While Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and the starcast of upcoming film "Mom", including Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, were supposed to attend the opening ceremony, they were not able to make it to the event.

This year the festival will have Morocco as its country focus.

"We are pleased to showcase Moroccan films here. Bollywood is the oldest known cinema. Surprisingly, in Morocco, there are a few cinemas that are completely dedicated to the Indian movies. People there speak Indian languages just by watching Indian films," Moroccan Ambassador Mohamed Maliki told IANS.

The five-day Delhi leg of the film festival, which is talking place here at the Sri Fort Auditorium, will showcase Indian films like "Hindi Medium", "Pink", "Agneepath", "Shivaay", "M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Phillauri", "Sachin: A Billion Dreams", "Neerja", "Jolly LLB 2" and "Trapped".

Some films from different countries across the world that will be showcased this year include "Black Cat" (US), "Last Christmas" (Italy), "The Letterbox" (Turkey), "Adios Carmen" (Morocco), "The Bench" (Iran), "Inner Court" (Brazil) and "Letter to the Night" (France), among others.

After its Delhi leg, which will conclude on July 5, the festival will travel to cities like Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Bhopal, Indore, Hisar, Meerut and Raipur. The final leg of the festival will take place in Mumbai.

          The Year in Review: 2012   
Happy New Year, friends!! 

I almost didn't write this post.  It was too difficult to remember what we did last year.  When we were living in Luxembourg our year was marked by various trips - Rome, Paris, Morocco!!  Back here in The States our life looks veeerrry different.  But, when I actually sat down and thought the year through I came up with enough to fill a year and make a post.  Riding on camels?  Throwing coins in the Trevi fountain?  No.  But we had some neat experiences. Actually, 2012 was a great year!

          MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL PRESENTS: "Punk From The Middle East And Asia"   

Last year Maximum Rocknroll had a fundraiser of sorts for their record archive. It passed a "collection" many years ago, and has evolved into one of the most comprehensive archives of punk vinyl in the world, well over 50,000 records (and growing). The funds were raised to help create a database (that will include original reviews, and will be free and searchable) and curate the existing archive - it was (is) a shitload of work, and shitloads ain't free, you know? Various incentives were offered to encourage donations, including mix tapes....giver's choice. Some enterprising (and brilliant) fukkr asked for the following tape: "one side Asia (non-Japan), one side Middle East." Well played, punk rocker. Archive coordinator Shivaun crushed this mixtape, and I hope that you will be as thrilled as I was digging on the gems she uncovered from all over the damned place. Not surprisingly, Tian An Men 89 Records makes several contributions (I mean, come on - of course that's the first place you look, right?), but Pakistani grindcore? OK....I'm sold. Bands from: Syria, India, Uzbekistan, Iran, Turkey, Singapore, Armenia, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Algeria, Israel, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Sound Korea, Lebanon, Morocco and United Arab Emirates. 



          New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016   

Oribe Hair Care was in the hands of dozens of hairdressers during the most recent New York Fashion Week, and our Oribe educators and network of stylists created an array of looks—from stunningly editorial to sweetly simplistic—to complement the designers’ Fall/Winter 2016 collections. Discover each show and style below.

NICOLE MILLER 
Hair by Tomo Jidai

Nicole Miller’s Fall 2016 collection draws inspiration from Nordic influences, from the topography and folklore of the region to knits and ceramics. The icy essence of the designs, balanced by a spirit of coziness and whimsy, is beautifully reflected by lead hairstylist Tomo Jidai’s simple, effortlessly Scandi-chic hair.

Get the Look:

  1. Start with damp-to-wet hair.
  2. Part the hair so that it falls naturally, then take the parting ear to ear and spritz Foundation Mist section by section. 
  3. Apply Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil from mid-lengths to ends.
  4. For thinner hair, apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to add volume. 
  5. Finish by blow drying in sections and smoothing out with a brush.

 

ADAM LIPPES
Hair by Ramona Eschbach

Inspired by British building designers Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll who combined formal and informal to modernize English estates while keeping their authentic beauty intact, Adam Lippes’ Fall/Winter 2016 collection presents with silk jacquards, velvet burnouts, Japanese denim and metallic lames—all of which stand the true test of time. Lead stylist Ramona Eschbach creates a classic shape with a slightly imperfect finger wave style and encouraged texture to complement the timeless sophistication of the line.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse on the roots and Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream on the ends. 
  3. Allow to air dry while using hands to encourage waves.
  4. Use a curling iron to define flat waves around the face. Spray each section with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.
  5. Set the remaining hair with a large curling iron and smooth into loose waves. Brush out and finish with Dry Texturizing Spray throughout.

 

JILL STUART
Hair by James Pecis

Inspired by the ’80s and female icons like Paloma Picasso and Tina Chow, Jill Stuart’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a moody but feminine opulence with textured fabrics in jewel-toned hues. Enhanced by rich embellishments, ruffles, and luxurious fabrics that are quintessential to Jill Stuart’s design DNA, the line is perfectly complemented by the edgy ’70s-goth waves created by lead hairstylist James Pecis.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and blow dry straight. 
  2. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray over the top of the hair and brush through, making sure that the top is blown down flat. 
  3. Hold a large curling iron vertically to create an “S” shaped wave.

 

EDUN
Hair by James Pecis

Staying true to the brand heritage, EDUN’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection celebrated organic fabrics and artisanal craftsmanship. Inspired by Morocco, diversity and taking handmade artisanal items and incorporating them into fashion, lead hairstylist James Pecis created a beautifully textured ponytail that was light and airy to complement the collection. On some of the models he incorporated reworked buttons as hair accessories to reflect the theme of the show.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo and Essential Antidote Replenishing Conditioner to create a clean, soft base.
  2. Spray Maximista Thickening Spray section by section from roots to ends, focusing more on the mid-shaft to ends to start creating texture. 
  3. Create a soft center part. 
  4. Using a mid-sized iron, create natural looking waves, alternating directions towards the face and away from the face. Once you’ve completed the whole head, gently break up the waves with your hands. 
  5. Work Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-shaft to ends to create even more grit and lived-in texture. 
  6. Create a low ponytail and secure with an elastic the same shade as the hair. When in doubt, go a shade darker.

 

VERONICA BEARD
Hair by Kien Hoang

Presenting a fresh take on the bohemian gypsy, Veronica Beard’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a free-flowing, unstructured aesthetic with a light romantic ease. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang explored a similar effortless femininity for the hair, creating a natural texture that is characterized by a light wave bend on the lengths and softly gathered at the nape of the neck.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist
  2. Apply Matte Waves Texture Lotion (launching April 2016) and use fingers to roughly blow dry and enhance the natural wave.
  3. Use a mid-size curling iron to fold the hair alternately through an iron to create soft bends. 
  4. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the base to add texture to the roots. 
  5. Rake AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream (launching April 2016) through the ends to enhance texture and add separation. 
  6. Finish by sewing a hemstitch with an elastic to direct hair together toward the nape.

 

BRANDON MAXWELL
Hair by James Pecis

Brandon Maxwell’s sophomore collection is a feminine and unapologetic love letter to the city of New York. Lead stylist James Pecis intensified the designer’s homage to the city’s greatness by drawing inspiration from the sexy uptown girl venturing downtown. To further strengthen the presentation of Maxwell’s art-deco-infused, modern take on power suiting and evening wear, each model walked down the runway with a unique hair look.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and a dime-size amount of Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream
  2. Cornrow the hair back beginning one inch from the center part and finishing below the crown. 
  3. Apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-lengths to ends on hair that is not already braided and use a wide-tooth comb to scrape hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. 
  4. Use Dry Texturizing Spray and Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste to create a super rough, smashed-in twist in the ponytail. 
  5. Finish with Superfine Hair Spray.

 

THE BLONDS
Hair by Kien Hoang

This season The Blonds Fall/Winter 2016 collection tells the story of twisted self-discovery through glamorous rose-tinted lenses in The Blonds Wonderland. Inspired by a Gregg Araki-Quentin Tarantino reinvention of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, lead stylist Kien Hoang creates an anarchic art piece that complements the showstopping line. Each ultra-high ballerina ponytail explodes with whipped strands and wild shades of pink.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with a combination of Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray.
  2. Pull hair into a high ponytail on top of the head and pull out random sections. 
  3. Apply Sculpting Cream to each section and use a Wind Spin Hair Dryer Curl Diffuser to twist and spin the sections into twisted knots. Hold the ends of the twist together with Original Pomade
  4. Wrap sections around the ponytail to create a messy bun that will serve as the anchor for the extension piece. 
  5. While each extension pieces are still individual, spray with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray and use the Wind Spin to spin and twist the extension. Apply Original Pomade to the ends as done previously to the natural hair. 
  6. Anchor each extension into the bun and expand each spiral to achieve a fuller twist. Begin to shape: The front pieces of the ponytail should drape over one eye with a few tendrils cascading while the rest should hang slightly off to the side. 
  7. Spray pink hair spray into the natural hair to create a seamless look with the extension pieces.
  8. Fashion the veil into the base of the ponytail using pins to secure. The veil should be tight on the sides to accentuate cheekbone structure. 
  9. Finish with Superfine Strong Hair Spray to set the style.

          Oribe at New York Men's Day   

Our Oribe Educators and talented network of stylists created the hair looks for all 12 of the designers presenting their Spring/Summer 2016 collections at New York Men's Day, the kick-off to the first-ever New York Fashion Week: Men's. Scroll down to discover every look.

David Hart
Hair by Kien Hoang

Excitement was high to see what designer David Hart would unveil this season after being named GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer in America for New York’s first ever Men’s Day sponsored by Cadillac. For Spring/Summer 2016, David drew inspiration from the German Bauhaus movement, so the pieces are infused with strong geometric shapes and color blocking. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang, who has been working with the designer for six seasons, created an extremely sleek and graphic hairstyle to complement the tailored garments.

Get the Look:

  1. To create this look, start by cleaning up the hair with square sideburns and a square neckline.
  2. Prep with Foundation Mist and blow-dry.
  3. Create a very low side part. Spray a generous amount of Dry Texturizing Spray section by section for grip until it hardens.
  4. Use Sculpting Cream to create a sculpted look that’s clean, and precise and flattened against the head.  

 

CADET 
Hair by Nathan Nguyen

Brooklyn-based menswear brand CADET stayed true to their post-war military academy heritage and debuted a Spring/Summer 2016 collection inspired by the ’50s Normandy military boys on vacation. Lead hairstylist Nathan Nguyen created an artfully lived-in ‘do that still held traces of an extreme military cut.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist and Crème for Style. Using a vent brush, blow-dry the hair back so it looks intentional, but slightly disheveled.
  2. Spray Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray for shine.
  3. Finish with Fiber Groom Elastic Texture Paste for pieceyness and separation at the ends.

 

Boyswear
Hair by Joey George

Boyswear designer Jackson McKeehan debuted a Spring/Summer 2016 collection titled “The Manson Family Singers” and inspired by serial killer Charles Manson and The Sound of Music. To complement the brightly colored clothes in bold prints, lead hairstylist Joey George created sleek Dutch braids for the models—a look that was as whimsical as their outfits.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist and Sculpting Cream. Blow-dry the hair straight.
  2. Part the hair down the middle into two sections and flatiron the hair section by section.
  3. Using Original Pomade for longer tresses and Rock Hard Gel for shorter, finer hair, braid the two sections of hair and secure each with an elastic.
  4. Pin the tail of the braid behind where the braid starts, creating a loop to finish.

 

CWST
Hair by Dan Nguyen

West Coast label CWST presented a Spring/Summer 2016 collection inspired by a Californian sensibility with an East Coast edge. Designer Joe Sadler worked with lead hairstylist Dan Nguyen to create a natural and laidback look to round out the carefree vibe from the long-haired models. 

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist and Sculpting Cream from roots to ends. Blow-dry with your hands.
  2. Apply Rough Luxury Molding Wax. Use a flatiron to create waves on random sections of the hair for multidimensional texture and movement.
  3. Finish with a mist of Thick Dry Finishing Spray at the roots and Soft Dry Conditioner Spray from midshaft to ends for touchable softness.

 

GARCIAVELEZ
Hair by Christian Ceja-Compin

Behind fluorescent lights modeled after the works of artists Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, designer Carlos Garciavelez unveiled a Spring/Summer 2016 of highly wearable separates in navy blue contrasted with shocks of neon yellows and greens. Garciavelez was inspired by the idea of light and the ephemerality of light captured on clothing. For the hair, lead hairstylist Christian Ceja-Compin created a lived-in, organic style that worked with and accentuated hair texture and personality of each model.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Apply Crème for Style from midshaft to ends. Blow-dry while working with your natural part and hair texture.
  3. Finish with Dry Texturizing Spray for lived-in texture and pieceyness.

 

PLAC
Hair by Marcos Diaz

Korean designer Sang-Hyun Lee debuted a Spring/Summer 2016 collection of effortlessly cool separates in muted colors for PLAC. Lead hairstylist Marcos Diaz was inspired by a nighttime beach look for the presentation. “This guy’s been at the beach all day, and he’s ready to go out in the evening,” said Diaz, who used Dry Texturizing Spray to create an effortless and approachable look that works with all hair types. “This look is easy-breezy and quick to create, and is the perfect canvas for whatever else you might be wearing.”

Get the Look:

  1. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray liberally all over the hair for grip. Use your hands to mold the hair to your desired silhouette and shape.
  2. Finish with a generous misting of Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray to set the hair and to keep tresses protected from summer humidity.

 

Kenneth Ning
Hair by Nathan Nguyen 

Minimalist menswear brand Kenneth Ning drew inspiration from Morocco and floral tapestries for Spring/Summer 2016, which translated into a collection of graphic black-and-white pieces interspersed with pops of yellows and blues in tapestry-like prints. Lead hairstylist Nathan Nguyen created an almost-wet hairstyle to complete the look. “It’s as if the models just took a dip in the pool and are getting ready to go out,” said Nguyen. “The hair is wet and the skin is dewy and organic.”

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist and Sculpting Cream.
  2. Use your hands to sculpt the hair close to the head, misting each section with Superfine Strong Hair Spray as you go.
  3. Put a wig cap over the sculpted hair and mist with Superfine Strong Hair Spray.
  4. Blow-dry until the hair is completely dry, then carefully take the cap off. 

 

Matiere 
Hair by Marcos Diaz

Lead hairstylist Marcos Diaz created a groomed yet approachable look to complement Matiere’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection of sportswear-inspired pieces. “The inspiration behind the look was New York summer hair,” explained Diaz. “I wanted the hair to be polished and regal.”

Get the Look:

  1. Prep with Foundation Mist to awaken the hair.
  2. Apply Crème for Style for slight hold and comb the hair back.
  3. Finish with a generous misting of Superfine Hair Spray.

 

Fingers Crossed
Hair by Dan Nguyen 

Designer Ryu Hayama of Fingers Crossed was inspired by sunsets and Thai boxers for his Spring/Summer 2016 collection, which was filled with color blocked outfits in reds, yellows and black. Lead hairstylist Dan Nguyen created an airy, lived-in look with a matte finish and fluffy texture. 

Get the Short Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist, Crème for Style and Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste.
  2. Blow-dry the hair with a flat brush to smooth out any dramatic waves in the hair, while still keeping a natural bend.
  3. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the roots and from mid-shaft to ends.
  4. Spritz Foundation Mist into the hair to reawaken the hair.
  5. Finish by piecing out the ends.

 

Get the Long Look:

  1. Create an irregular part and spray Foundation Mist from roots to ends.
  2. Apply a generous amount of Supershine Moisturizing Cream from mid-shaft to ends, making sure that the hair is saturated. Follow with Crème for Style, making sure to really work the product through the hair.
  3. Apply Rough Luxury Molding Wax from the roots to mid-shaft. Use a flatiron to create a flat S-wave.
  4. Starting three inches below the roots, set the front with clips to open up the face.
  5. Finish with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray

 

HVRMINN 
Hair by Joey George

The elegant and highly tailored looks from HVRMINN’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection were heavily inspired by the British mob, so lead hairstylist Joey George created a sleek, graphic hairstyle to complete the look.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with Foundation Mist and Sculpting Cream.
  2. Blow-dry the hair straight and back.
  3. Once the hair is completely dry, apply Original Pomade and slick back the hair for high shine and a clean, sculpted look.

 

Carlos Campos 
Hair by Kien Hoang  

Designer Carlos Campos drew inspiration from his Honduran roots for his Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The rich green hues of the country’s forests comprised the color palette for his beautifully tailored pieces, and its humidity served as the inspiration for the hair. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang used various amounts of Foundation Mist, Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray and Crème for Style depending on each model’s hair texture to create a finger-dried look that’s natural and effortless.

          Forbes Middle East announce its 2017 Ranking of Top 100 Companies in the Arab World   


·         Saudi Arabia dominates the list with 36 companies
·         The total market value of the top 100 companies in the Arab world reached $772 billion
·         49% of the top 100 companies are from the banking and financial services sector
·         Global Telecom Holding (#33) was the top gainer
·         10 new companies joined the top 100 list
Dubai, U.A.E. June 20, 2017: In its June issue, Forbes Middle East unveiled its 2017 ranking of the Top 100 Companies in the Arab World
Saudi Arabia continues to dominate the list with 36 companies. SABIC, which is from the kingdom, emerged at the top. With the rise in oil prices, the total market value of the top 100 companies in the Arab world reached $772 billion in April 2017, gaining 12% compared to the previous year. Although aggregate net profits decreased by 9.7% to $52.9 billion, sales and total assets increased by 2.4% and 3.8% to reach $288.3 billion and $2.7 trillion respectively as companies’ operational performance was relatively stable.
Following a wave of mergers and acquisitions across the region, banks and financial services take the largest share in terms of sector. The industrial sector and telecommunications came in second and third with Etisalat (#5) being the biggest telecommunications company across all metrics and Industries Qatar (#31) as the biggest industrial company in the list.
Global Telecom Holding (#33) was the top gainer in the list. Breaking the ranks this year are 10 new entrants: Omantel (#71), National Bank of Bahrain (#83), LafargeHolcim Maroc (#89), Elsewedy Electric (#92), Emaar The Economic City (#94), Saudi Ground Services (#94), Advanced Petrochemical Company (#97), BBK (#98), National Bank of Oman (#99) and Mannai Corporation (#100).
Khuloud Al Omian, Editor in Chief of Forbes Middle East said, “Although oil prices drive the Arab region’s economy, the share of banking and financial services followed by telecommunication and industrial sector is a positive sign towards more vibrant growth for companies in the region.”
Methodology:
A total of 1,300 listed companies were selected across the Arab stock markets from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Bahrain, U.A.E. (Abu Dhabi and Dubai), Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia. Those suspended from trading or who didn’t disclose their 2016 financial statements were excluded. Four metrics were measured: market value, sales, net profit and total assets. Market value and currency conversions are as of April 6, 2017. The cut-off was $1.9 billion for market value, $849 million for sales, $133 million for net profit and $5 billion for total assets. Each company received four separate scores based on its ranking on each metric within the list. To qualify, a company had to meet the minimum for at least one metric. 154 listed companies qualified at minimum one metric. All four scores were added (equally weighted) to reach a composite score and rank the companies.

فوربس الشرق الأوسط تلعن عن
 أقوى 100 شركة في العالم العربي لعام 2017
-         المملكة العربية السعودية تتصدر القائمة بـ 36 شركة
-         772 مليار دولار القيمة السوقية الإجمالية لأقوى 100 شركة في العالم العربي
-         قطاع البنوك والخدمات المالية يهيمن على القائمة بـ 49%
-         غلوبال تيلكوم القابضة أكبر الرابحين
-         10 شركات جديدة في قائمة أقوى 100 شركة في العالم العربي

دبي، 20 يونيو 2017:
كشفت مجلة "فوربس الشرق الأوسط" في عددها الصادر في شهر يونيو/حزيران عن قائمتها لأقوى 100 شركة في العالم العربي. أظهرت القائمة تحسنا في أداء الشركات في المنطقة العربية خلال عام 2016، بسبب ارتفاع أسعار النفط مقارنة بالعام الذي سبقه.
واستطاعت الشركات التي أوردتها القائمة أن تحقق زيادة في المبيعات وإجمالي الأصول بنسبة 2.4 % و3.8 % لتصل إلى 288.3 مليار دولار و2.7 ترليون دولار على التوالي، حيث شهد الأداء التشغيلي للشركات استقرارًا نسبياً، على الرغم من أن صافي الأرباح الإجمالية انخفض بنسبة 9.7% ليصل إلى 52.9 مليار دولار. وبلغت القيمة السوقية الإجمالية لأقوى 100 شركة في العالم العربي 772 مليار دولار في أبريل/ نيسان2017، بزيادة نسبتها 12% عن العام السابق.
وقد فرضت الشركات السعودية وجودها على القائمة بشكل كبير، ممثلة بـ 36 شركة، بمجموع أصول قدرت بنحو 944.7 مليار دولار ومجموع مبيعات تقدر بـ 135.6 مليار دولار، واحتلت الشركة السعودية للصناعات الأساسية (سابك) المركز الأول بوصفها أكبر شركة في السعودية والعالم العربي. فيما حلّت قطر والإمارات في المركز الثاني والثالث بـ 19 و 17 شركة على التوالي.
وبالنظر إلى القطاعات، جاء قطاع البنوك والخدمات المالية الذي يشهد موجة من عمليات الدمج والاستحواذ في الإمارات والسعودية وقطر والمغرب ومصر صدارة القائمة بـ 49 %، ولا يزال (بنك قطر الوطني) الذي حاز المركز الثاني، يحتفظ بمكانته كأكبر بنك مدرج للتداول في المنطقة، يليه (بنك أبوظبي الأول) في المركز الـ 3، وهو ثمرة الاندماج بين (بنك أبو ظبي الوطني) و(بنك الخليج الأول).
فيما جاء قطاعا الاتصالات والصناعة في المرتبتين الثانية والثالثة على التوالي، فقد برزت (اتصالات) في المركز الـ 5، بوصفها أكبر شركة اتصالات في العالم العربي بالمقاييس كلها، و(صناعات قطر) في المركز الـ31 بوصفها أكبر شركة صناعية في القائمة.
وكانت (غلوبال تيلكوم القابضة) بالمركز 33 أكبر الرابحين، وعدت الشركة الأكثر تقدما في قائمة هذا العام إذ استطاعت أن تقفز من المركز 85 إلى 52. وقد زادت الشركة إجمالي أصولها بنسبة 18% لتصل إلى 5.6 مليار دولار.
وشهدت قائمة هذا العام إضافة 10 شركات جديدة وهي: (عمانتل) في المركز (71) و(بنك البحرين الوطني) في المركز 83، و(لافارج هولسيم المغرب) في المركز 89 و(السويدي الكتريك) في المركز 92، و(اعمار المدينة الاقتصادية) في المركز 94، و(الشركة السعودية للخدمات الارضية) في المركز 94، و(الشركة المتقدمة للبتروكيماويات) في المركز 97 و(بنك البحرين والكويت) في المركز 98، و(البنك الوطني العماني) في المركز 99، (مجمع شركات المناعي التجارية) في المركز 100.
وصرحت خلود العميان، رئيس تحرير فوربس الشرق الأوسط: "على الرغم من أن أسعار النفط تدفع باقتصاد المنطقة العربية، إلا أن قطاع البنوك والخدمات المالية، يليه قطاعا الاتصالات والصناعة، يسهم ويعد كعلامة إيجابية نحو نمو أكثر حيوية لشركات المنطقة".
المنهجية
بدأنا ب 1300 شركة مدرجة في أسواق الأسهم العربية من السعودية وقطر وعُمان والأردن ومصر والكويت والبحرين والإمارات (أبوظبي ودبي) ولبنان والمغرب وتونس. كما استثنينا الشركات المساهمة العامة التابعة للشركات المدرجة، وتلك الموقوفة عن التداول، بالإضافة إلى الشركات التي لم تكشف عن بياناتها المالية المدققة لعام 2016 . ولإنشاء قائمة أقوى الشركات في العالم العربي، استخدمنا 4 معايير: القيمة السوقية والمبيعات وصافي الأرباح وإجمالي الأصول. واعتمدت القيمة السوقية وتحويلات العملات في 6 أبريل/ نيسان 2017 . فيما كان الحد الأدنى لدخول القائمة 1.9 مليار دولار للقيمة السوقية، و 849 مليون دولار للمبيعات، و 133 مليون دولار لصافي الأرباح و 5 مليارات دولار لإجمالي الأصول. وحصلت كل شركة على 4 تقييمات بناءً على مرتبتها في كل معيار ضمن القائمة.
ويشترط على الشركة أن تلبي الحد الأدنى في معيار واحد على الأقل لضمان التأهل، فيما تحصل على درجة صفر في حال كانت دون الحد الأدنى المعتمد. وتأهلت 154 شركة مدرجة في معيار واحد على الاقل.
ثم قمنا بجمع المعايير ال 4 (بأوزان نسبية متساوية) لبلوغ درجة مجمعة لتصنيف الشركات. فكانت (سابك) الأعلى درجة بينها، و(مجمع شركات المناعي التجارية) في المركز 100.

Morocco's central bank has postponed for "a few days" its announcement of the first phase of liberalising its dirham currency, a key International Monetary Fund-backed reform for the North African kingdom. The central bank sent an invitation to reporters this week to say the much-anticipated announcement would take place on Thursday at a news conference with the central bank governor and finance minister.

          ALARMING FACTS   


 


Subject: FW: ALARMING FACTS

Mr Geert Wilders is a Member of the Dutch Parliament.
>
>  
> In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: "Who lost Europe ?" Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons in New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem ..
>
> Dear friends,
> Thank you very much for inviting me.
>
> I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.  There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.
>
> First, I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe .  Then, I will say a few things about Islam.  To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem .
>
> The Europe you know is changing.
>
> You have probably seen the landmarks.  But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
>
> All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the police as well.  It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.  The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.
>
> There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe .  With larger congregations than there are in churches.  And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
>
> Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden .  In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.   Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.
>
> In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.
>
> Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils.  In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims.  Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.
>
> In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin   The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.
>
> In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.
>
> Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel ..  I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.
>
> A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live.   San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
>
> Now these are just numbers.  And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But there are few signs of that.  The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France ..  One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'.  And this is how we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.
>
> The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey ..
>
> Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.   Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators 'settlers'.  Because that is what they are.  They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.
>
> Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
>
> The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet.  His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time.  Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.
>
> Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.  Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life.  Islam means 'submission'.  Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia.  If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
>
> Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.  The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel .  First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz; second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.
>
> This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance.   Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia ..   Israel is simply in the way.  The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
>
> The war against Israel is not a war against Israel .  It is a war against the West.  It is jihad.   Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.  Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
>
> Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.  They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can get Israel , they can get everything.  So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'.  In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing.  The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem ....

          U.S., Britain Restrict Electronics On Flights From Mideast Countries   
Updated at 2:55 p.m. ET Airline passengers coming to the U.S. and Britain on direct flights from a number of majority-Muslim nations must now place most electronic devices, including laptops, tablets and cameras, in checked baggage under stepped-up security measures, the Trump administration and the British government said. Passengers can still carry smartphones into the plane's cabin, but nothing larger, officials from the two countries added. The measures took effect Tuesday morning, and in the U.S. they cover about 50 incoming flights a day from the eight countries on the list — Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. All are traditional U.S. allies and none is among the six majority-Muslim nations on President Trump's controversial executive order that seeks to temporarily suspend immigration. The president issued a revised executive order on March 6, and that one, like the original in January, has been halted by the courts . The

OOPS...
Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.
I have not the smallest molecule of faith in aerial navigation other than ballooning,
or of the expectation of good results from any of the trials we hear of. 1895
And in a Letter to Baden-Powell (1896) Radio has no future.

The 183rd day of the year; the concatenation of 183 and 184, 183184 is a perfect square. There are no smaller numbers for which the concatenation of two consecutive numbers is square. (Students might seek the next such pair of numbers. They are small enough to be year dates)

The sum of the first 183 primes minus 183 is prime.

183 is the eighth of the 12 year-days which are perfect totient numbers.  (There are only 57 such numbers under 102). [a perfect totient number is a number that is the sum of it's iterated totients, that is, the number of integers smaller than, and relatively prime to 183 + the number smaller than and less than that result, + ... down to one, "For example, start with 327. Then φ(327) = 216, φ(216) = 72, φ(72) = 24, φ(24) = 8, φ(8) = 4, φ(4) = 2, φ(2) = 1, and 216 + 72 + 24 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 327 " *Wik

1133 First trade security agreement between Pisans and Alibibn Yusof of Morocco.Under such an agreement, Guilielmo, father of Leonardo brought his young son (who would much later be called Fibonacci) to Bugia, where he would learn of the Arabic calculation system that he would introduce to his  homeland in his Liber Abbaci in 1202. *Devlin, The Man of Numbers

In 1698 Thomas Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.356 for what he called "The Miner's Friend; or an engine to raise water by fire" which was the first application of steam power for pumping water. The steam powered pump had no piston. Two years earlier Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.347 for his invention for "Navigation improved; or the art of rowing ships of all rates in calms with a more easy, swift, and steady motion than oars can." ( which involved paddle-wheels driven by a capstan and which was dismissed by the Admiralty following a negative report by the Surveyor of the Navy,Edmund Dummer.)*TIS*Wik

1779 One of the earliest mentions of blackboards in Colonial America was in a letter from John Taylor, a tutor at Queens College (to become Rutgers University)to a graduate student, John Bogart, that he was asking to take over his classes while Taylor was away on military duties. "I have spoken to Mr. Briton to make a blackboard.." *Kidwell, Hastings, & Roberts; Tools of American Mathematics Teaching.

1832 Legendre writes to Nathanial Bowditch regarding his translation of LaPlace's "Mecanique Celeste" ,"Your work is not merely a translation with a commentary; I regard it as a new edition, augmented and improved, and such a one as might have come from the hands of the author himself, ... if he had been solicitously studious of being clear."   LaPlace's classic is a very difficult book, and Biot, who helped him prepare it for printing said that Laplace himself would frequently get lost in following his own line of reasoning  and insert, "il est aise a voir" (It is easy to see). *The Teaching and History of Mathematics in the United States, F. Cajori

1850 Stokes’s theorem made its first appearance as a postscript to a letter from Sir William Thompson (Lord Kelvin) to Stokes. It first appeared publicly as question 8 on the Smith’s Prize exam for 1854. Stokes drew up this competitive exam, which was taken by the best mathematics students at Cambridge University. By the time Stokes died the theorem was universally known as “Stokes’s theorem.” [Spivak, Calculus on Manifolds, p. viii].

1883 Helmholtz writes to Heinrich Hertz to congratulate him on his investigations. "I have read with the greatest interest your investigation on the cathode ray discharge, and cannot refrain from writing to say Bravo!" Hemholtz was not given to token praise, and was the opinion that was most valued by Hertz. *Hertz Miscellaneous Papers

1982 Science (p. 39) reported that Steven Smale had proved that the average-case behavior of the simplex algorithm for linear programming is far better than the worse-case behavior, which is exponential. [Mathematics Magazine 56 (1983), p. 55]. *VFR

1944 Grace Hopper meets Howard Aiken for the first time. Here is her description of the meeting:
Until 1944, I had been a thoroughly respectable mathematician. I had never met a digit, and I wanted nothing to do with digits. I came into the computer business in a unique fashion. I was ordered to the Navy Liaison Officer at Harvard. I left Midshipmen School on Friday, and on Monday morning, 2nd July 1944, I reported to the Navy Liaison Officer, Harvard. He took me by the hand, and led me over to an underground laboratory. I had just acquired one-and-a-half stripes. There stood a large object, with three stripes, who took one look at me and said: "Where the hell have you been?" I spluttered, and said that I had had two days' travel time. He said: "For the last three months." I said: "Midshipmen's School", and he said he had told them it was not necessary. By this time I was practically cowering, of course, but with one-and-a-half stripes, I would stand up straight and listen to three stripes. He waved his hand and said: "That's a computing machine." I said, "Yes, Sir." What else could I say? He said he would like to have me compute the coefficients of the arc tangent series, for Thursday. Again, what could I say? "Yes, Sir." I did not know what on earth was happening, but that was my meeting with Howard Hathaway Aiken. In the long run, he taught me one very important thing. One can always make a mistake once, but it must not be made a second time. That was a very good thing to learn. He also flatly informed me that he had told the Bureau of Naval Personnel not to send him a female. At this point, and over the next few months, I learned another lesson. I could have taken the attitude of showing him, and making him take that back. Instead, I decided it would be far better to learn to work with him. This is a lesson we all need to learn: of not showing people, but learning to work with people. It certainly made a difference in getting things done in the computer field.

1992 On July 2, fearing for the impact that a park service removal of homeowners around Elkmont, Tennessee in the Great Smokey Mountain Natl Park would have on a variety of local fireflys, Lynn Faust wrote a letter to Professor Steven Stogratz, who had recently written a paper in Science Magazine about synchronized flashing of the firelies (lightning bugs) known to exist in Southeast Asia. Ms. Faust's letter would, in Strogatz's words, "shatter a (scientific) myth that had lasted for decades."
The letter, in Ms. Faust's own hand, can be read here. (My thanks to both Professor Strogatz and Ms. Faust for their cooperation in sharing this letter.)

2011 Simon Chua, 58, received Australia's B. H. Neumann Award for pioneering efforts in training and honing the talent of young Filipino mathematicians for the past 15 years.
The Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) bestowed the award to Chua on July 2, 2011. The B. H. Neumann Awards are presented annually for "important contributions over many years to the enrichment of mathematics learning in Australia and its region," according to the AMT.
The award is named in honor of Bernhard H. Neumann, the so-called father of Australian mathematics, who “provided outstanding leadership, support and encouragement for mathematics and the teaching of mathematics at all levels."
Chua, who is president and co-founder of the Mathematics Trainers Guild-Philippines (MTG), is the first Asian to receive the award.
Through the MTG, Filipino students have won numerous medals in math competitions abroad including in China, United States, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia.
In 2006, Chua became the first Filipino to win the Paul Erdos Award from the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions. *MathDL




BIRTHS

1622 Rene-Francoise de Sluse (2 July 1622 – 19 March 1685) born. 1830 “It is true that Fourier is of the opinion that the principle object of mathematics is the public utility and the explanation of natural phenomena; but a scientist like him ought to know that the unique object of science is the honor of the human spirit and on this basis a question of [the theory of] numbers is worth as much as a question about the planetary system.” Jacobi to Legendre. Big Kline, p. 1037. VFR


1842 George Thom (2 July 1842 in Forgue near Huntly, Scotland - 20 Dec 1916 in Aberdeen, Scotland) graduated from Aberdeen and then became Principal of Doveton College in Madras, India. He returned to Scotland as Vice-Principal of Chanonry School Aberdeen and then became Rector of Dollar Institution (later to become Dollar Academy). He held this post for 24 years. He was a founder member of the EMS and became the fifth President in 1886. *SAU


1847 Andrew Gray graduated from Glasgow University and was appointed assistant and secretary to Lord Kelvin. He became Professor of Physics at University College Bangor and then returned to Glasgow as Kelvin's successor. He produced many books and papers in both mathematics and physics.*SAU


1852 Birthdate of William Burnside, whose Theory of Groups (1897, 1911) is now a classic. His suspicion that every group of odd order is solvable was proved in 1962 by Walter Feit and John G. Thompson. *VFR He is known mostly as an early contributor to the theory of finite groups. In 1897 Burnside's classic work Theory of Groups of Finite Order was published. The second edition (published in 1911) was for many decades the standard work in the field. A major difference between the editions was the inclusion of character theory in the second.
Burnside is also remembered for the formulation of Burnside's problem (which concerns the question of bounding the size of a group if there are fixed bounds both on the order of all of its elements and the number of elements needed to generate it) and for Burnside's lemma (a formula relating the number of orbits of a permutation group acting on a set with the number of fixed points of each of its elements) though the latter had been discovered earlier and independently by Frobenius and Cauchy.



1862 Sir William Henry Bragg (2 July 1862 – 10 March 1942) was a pioneer British scientist in solid-state physics who was a joint winner (with his son Sir Lawrence Bragg) of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 for research on the determination of crystal structures. During the WW I, Bragg was put in charge of research on the detection and measurement of underwater sounds in connection with the location of submarines. He also constructed an X-ray spectrometer for measuring the wavelengths of X-rays. In the 1920s, while director of the Royal Institution in London, he initiated X-ray diffraction studies of organic molecules. Bragg was knighted in 1920. *TIS

1885 Émile Henriot (2 July 1885 - 1 February 1961) was a French chemist notable for being the first to show definitely that potassium and rubidium are naturally radioactive.
He investigated methods to generate extremely high angular velocities, and found that suitably placed air-jets can be used to spin tops at very high speeds - this technique was later used to construct ultracentrifuges.
He was a pioneer in the study of the electron microscope. He also studied birefringence and molecular vibrations.
He obtained his DSc in physics in 1912 the Sorbonne, Paris, under Marie Curie. *Wik


1906 Hans Bethe, (July 2, 1906 – March 6, 2005) German-born American theoretical physicist who helped to shape classical physics into quantum physics and increased the understanding of the atomic processes responsible for the properties of matter and of the forces governing the structures of atomic nuclei. Bethe did work relating to armour penetration and the theory of shock waves of a projectile moving through air. He studied nuclear reactions and reaction cross sections (1935-38). In 1943, Oppenheimer asked Bethe to be the head of the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos on the Manhattan Project. After returning to Cornell University in 1946, Bethe became a leader promoting the social responsibility of science. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics (1967) for his work on the production of energy in stars. *TIS



DEATHS

1566 Nostradamus, French astrologer died on this day (b. 1503). I wonder if he predicted THIS in his prophacies.


1591 Vincenzo Galilei ( c. 1520 – 2 July 1591) Italian, music theorist, lutenist and composer, who as the father of Galileo Galilei, adopted experimentation to prove aspects of acoustics, and may thus have influenced his son, Galileo, away from pure, abstract mathematics and towards making experiments and investigation. Vincenzo's discoveries in acoustics included some of the physics of vibrating strings and columns of air. In particular he was the first to show that the ratio of an interval was proportional to string lengths but varied as the square of the tension applied to the strings and as the cubes of volumes of air. He recognized the superiority of equal tempered tuning and compiled a codex of pieces illustrating the use of all 24 major and minor keys as early as 1584.*TIS


1613 Bartholomeo Pitiscus (August 24, 1561 – July 2, 1613) was a Polish theologian who first coined the word Trigonometry. *SAU Pitiscus achieved fame with his influential work written in Latin, called Trigonometria: sive de solutione triangulorum tractatus brevis et perspicuus (1595, first edition printed in Heidelberg), which introduced the word "trigonometry" to the English and French languages, translations of which had appeared in 1614 and 1619, respectively. It consists of five books on plane and spherical trigonometry. Pitiscus is sometimes credited with inventing the decimal point, the symbol separating integers from decimal fractions, which appears in his trigonometrical tables and was subsequently accepted by John Napier in his logarithmic papers (1614 and 1619).*Wik

1621 Thomas Harriot (Oxford, c. 1560 – London, 2 July 1621) died of a cancerous ulcer on his left nostril. While in America in 1586 he learned to “drink” tobacco smoke from the Indians. This probably makes him the earliest recorded tobacco fatality. He is best known for his contributions to algebra, including the invention of the symbol for less than, \( \lt \) and greater than, \( \gt \) . He might have adopted this symbol from a decoration on an Indian’s back. See C. L. Smith, “On the origin of ‘<’ and ‘>’,” The Mathematics Teacher, 57(1964), 479–481 for a picture of this Indian.*VFR
He also is credited with the mathematical symbol for "therefore" \(\therefore \) His executors posthumously published his Artis Analyticae Praxis on algebra in 1631; Nathaniel Torporley was the intended executor of Harriot's wishes, but Walter Warner in the end pulled the book into shape. It may be a compendium of some of his works but does not represent all that he left unpublished (more than 400 sheets of annotated writing). It isn't directed in a way that follows the manuscripts and it fails to give the full significance of Harriot's writings.*Wik He introduced a simplified notation for algebra and his fundamental research on the theory of equations was far ahead of its time. He was able to solve equations, even with negative or complex roots. However, he published no mathematical work in his lifetime. (Artes analyticae praxis, posthumous, 1631). Especially early in his career, he worked on navigation for his patron Walter Raleigh. Harriot carried out extensive telescopic observations of the satellites of Jupiter and of sunspots. When investigating optics, he discovered the sine law and measured the refractive indices of 13 different substances. He investigated free motion and motion resisted in air, and ballistic curves.*TIS Thomas Harriot was an English mathematician who did outstanding work on the solution of equations, recognising negative roots and complex roots in a way that makes his solutions look almost like a present day solution.*SAU
The solution of quadratic equations by the method of factoring was often referred to as Harriot's method because of his introduction of the method in his writing.
It is not possible today to find Harriot's grave. Although he was buried near the altar of St Christopher le Stocks in London,the church was destroyed in the great fire of 1666. There is a plaque in the entrance hall of the Bank of England, which is close to the site of Harriot's grave. It reproduces the original Latin wording of his epitaph.(p474) An English translation would read:
Stay, traveler, lightly tread;
Near this spot lies all that was mortal
Of that most celebrated man Thomas Harriot.
He was that most learned Harriot . . .
Who cultivated all the sciences and excelled in all . . .
A most studious searcher after truth . . .

1644 William Gascoigne (1612 – 2 July 1644) was an English astronomer, mathematician and maker of scientific instruments from Middleton, Leeds who invented the micrometer. He was one of "nos Keplari" a group of astronomers in the north of England who followed the astronomy of Johannes Kepler which included, Jeremiah Horrocks and William Crabtree. Gascoigne's micrometer is shown at right from a drawing by Hooke. Gascoigne, was working on a Keplerian optical arrangement when a thread from a spider’s web happened to become caught at exactly the combined optical focal points of the two lenses. When he looked through the arrangement Gascoigne saw the web bright and sharp within the field of view. He realized that he could more accurately point the telescope using the line as a guide, and went on to invent the telescopic sight by placing crossed wires at the focal point to define the centre of the field of view. Gascoigne died at the Battle of Marston Moor, Yorkshire, *Wik

1874 Gouverneur Emerson American physician, statistician and agriculturalist who prepared a series of tables of deaths and causes in Philadelphia, during thirty years from 1807. These showed, for example, the excessive mortality of males during childhood. He began practice in Philadelphia on 4 Aug 1820, where yellow fever broke out a few weeks later, with 73 deaths by that fall. Emerson recorded cases, dates, locations, and outcomes. He concluded no current medical treatments was especially effective. When smallpox reappeared there, with 325 deaths in 1824, Emerson drafted a bill for control measures. There were only 6 cases of smallpox in the city in 1825, and 3 in 1826. In retirement, he turned to peach culture, and studied phosphate and guano fertilizers. *TIS

1947 Nikolai Grigorievich Chebotaryov (15 June [O.S. 3 June] 1894 – 2 July 1947) proved his density theorem generalising Dirichlet's theorem on primes in an arithmetical progression*SAU

1963 Seth Barnes Nicholson (November 12, 1891 – July 2, 1963) was an American astronomer best known for discovering four satellites of Jupiter. As a graduate student at the University of California, while photographing the recently- discovered 8th moon of Jupiter with the 36-inch Crossley reflector, he discovered a 9th (1914). During his life career at Mt.Wilson Observatory, he discovered two more Jovian satellites (1938) and the 12th (1951), as well as a Trojan asteroid, and computed orbits of several comets and of Pluto. His main assignment at Mt. Wilson was observing the sun with the 150-foot solar tower telescope, and he produced annual reports on sunspot activity and magnetism for decades. With Edison Pettit, he measured the temperatures of the moon, planets, sunspots, and stars in the early 1920s. *TIS

2002 Daniel Chonghan Hong (3 Mar 1956; 2 Jul 2002 at age 46) Korean theoretical physicist specializing in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamic physics, who with colleague Hugo Caram, originated the void diffusing-void model of granular flow, which is recognized as an effective theoretical treatment for a broad range of dynamical phenomena in granular media. In general, his work ranged from percolation network, viscous fingering, granular flows to traffic equations. He studied and taught in America from 1981, and wrote articles for popular magazines on various topics. He died at the young age of 46 of cardiac arrest. *TIS

          Effects of Tree Shelters on the Survival and Growth of Argania spinosa Seedlings in Mediterranean Arid Environment   
The argan tree is endemic species of Morocco. It occupies an area of more than 8700 km2 and plays essential ecological and economical roles. In spite of their value, the argan woodlands are subject to rapid and uncontrolled degradation during the last decades, mainly due to overgrazing and systematic collection of argan nuts. The present study was carried out to investigate the effects of two types of tree shelters on survival and growth of Argania spinosa seedlings planted in the southwest of Morocco in order to improve the results of reforestation programs which usually end by repeated failures. The experiment was conducted in the Mesguina forest for two growing seasons after transplantation in the field. After two years, the use of tree shelters significantly increased tree survival and allowed a gain of 20%. Height growth was positively affected by tree shelters. The use of tree shelters showed no significant decrease in basal diameter. In contrast, the height to diameter ratios of sheltered trees were much higher compared to the control. Thus, the use of the tree shelters could aid the early establishment and growth of Argania spinosa under conditions similar to those of the experiment.

          Football Stars Converged For Ndip Tambe’s Gala Match   
By Basil K Mbuye Ndip Tambe Gala match was a one to remember for the local fans who had turned out to watch pure footballing spectacle as Friends of Robert Ndip Tambe took on Southwest Selection at the Middle Farm Stadium on Friday, June 30. The two Indomitable Lions players, Sebastien Siani and Robert Ndip Tambe were on target as the Friends of Robert Ndip Tambe outplayed Southwest selection at the Limbe Middle Farm Field, on Friday June 30. The encounter that pulled out a huge crowd of the Limbe football lovers in particular and around the region, was full of fire and steam and also entertainment from both ends of the field. Picking the ball back from their net after some 20 minutes of play, Friends of Ndip Tambe made up of professional players like Sebastien Siani (K.V. Oostende, Belgium), Ketu Jih kalvin (Rayo Vallecano de Madrid),Joseph Yanki Agbor (MAS Fez, Morocco), Ernesten Rubis Lavsamba(Elche CF Ilicitano, Spain), Pierre Kunde Malong (Atlético de Madrid ), Otia Keukang Nombo (Atlético de Madrid), Marcus Mokake among others, had to come from behind to win the game 2-1. With just some few minutes into the end of the first segment, it was Sebastian Siani who leveled tally after converting a superb cross from Ndip Tambe from the left flank to make it 1-1 before both size go on recess. Just like the first segment, play will resume with the local players showing some determination to carry the day. However, their will to win the game was subdued when indomitable Lions’ striker, Robert Ndip Tambe gave his side the lead after scoring from a close range. His goal eventually gave his side a 2-1 victory over the local selection. Speaking after the game, Ndip Tambe expressed his gratitude to the Limbe population and lovers of football who came from far to be part of the gala match. “The purpose of this game was to bring my friends together and also the population of Limbe. Seeing the turnout today for the encounter, I am very happy and satisfied. It was also so much joy playing alongside other professionals who started their career in the Southwest Region just like I did,” Ndip said.
          Mastic    
Narcissus and Mastic

Place a piece of brittle mastic resin in your mouth. Notice how the dusty, powdery coating that happened during the commute overseas in a jar turns pliable as it comes into contact with the moisture in your mouth... Start to chew and feel the resinous, slightly smoky, piney aroma fill your palate and nasal cavity... A nostalgic aroma, like tasting "glida mastic" for the first time in Jaffa some late summer night, or like sipping warm sahleb in midwinter - cooked from a packet that your mom sent especially from Israel all the way to Canada, just because you asked her to... The tinctured resin, although smells heavenly like these old fashioned ice creams and above mentioned sahleb (it is also used to flavour malabi, by the way), is very tricky tow work with as it is not 100% soluble in alcohol and leaves blobs of chewing-cum consistency at the bottom of beakers and vials, and sticks to all the utensil one tries to desperately stir it with. Mastic resinoid are also possible to produce, although I've never encountered ones (in those products, greater amount will be alcohol-soluble).

Mastic essential oil, on the other hand, is easy to dissolve but does not smell all that exciting. It comes from the mastic bush leaves and twigs, which are an inseparable part of my childhood's daily aromatic landscape. Those bushes grew everywhere, and we played among them, crushing some leaves along the way and scratching a branch here or there - which also releases a wonderful green, fresh scent. The essential oil, however, does not smell quite so similar to this experience, and is rather more like the rhododendron leaf oil. There is a resinous and slightly funky aspect to it, and hardly any remnants at all to the utter freshness of the living plant.

Mastic Resin

Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus), AKA Mastic lentiscus is from the same genus as the edible pistachio nut, and the other native that is commonly found here - Pistacia atlantica (P. atlantica is often used as a base for grafting pistachio trees). This is a very common evergreen bush that rarely exceeds the size of a bush, but is capable of becoming a small tree (up to 7m tall) if it escapes bush fires, logging and is not continuously consumed by grazing wildlife and goats.

The word mastic derives from the Latin word "Masticare" (to chew), in Greek: μαστιχάω verb mastichein ("to gnash the teeth", the English word comes from the Latin masticate) or massein ("to chew").

Although mastic bushes are in abundance all around the Mediterranean basin, the gum is only produced in a handful of countries - Algeria, Morocco and the Canary Islands. But Greece is the only place where it is grown commercially especially for production of its fragrant gum-resin - especially in the southern part of the island of Chios (close to Izmir, Turkey). The gum is obtained by making incisions in the bush's trunk, and they drip tears which harden over time and become the translucent-yellowish-white "tears" that one can find in Greek stores to be used as a "spice", and can also be used as incense.

Medicinal and Cosmetic Uses:
Mastic is most commonly chewed as a breath freshener, and that's the main thing it is famous for. Mastic resin was used in the original recipe for Egyptian Kyphi - a perfume that was also chewed as a remedy. Mastic is generally used for stomach complaints, especially diorama in young children. Due to the gum's properties, it is used in many cosmetic preparations such as toothpastes, hair and skin lotions, etc.

Culinary Uses:
Mastic was used first and foremost as a chewing gum and breath freshener - before there was any chewing gum. Try it! It really works - nature's own original sugar-free chewing gum.  In the heat of the Middle East, it was a key ingredient in ice creams, to which is added not only a distinctively fresh-resinous flavour, but also a plasticity that helped it resist instant melting.
Mastic is used in several pudding-like and spoon desserts, including the above mentioned sahleb and malabia.
In Greece, it is used in festive pastries such as the challah-like tsoureki and vasilopita (in which a coin is hidden for New Year's Eve).

Flavouring Beverages: 
Smoke from mastic resin is also used to flavour water in Morocco. Finally, in the Levant mastic resin is used as a spice (to a lesser extent) also to flavour poultry and fish dishes, giving them a very peculiar flavour. There are several liquors prepared with mastic resin, such as Mastiha which is native to Chios, as well as a fizzy beverage called Mast.

Role in Perfumery:
Mastic resin is a great fixative, and makes a great addition to mimosa fragrances. The leaf oil is useful in green florals, Chypres, Fougères, etc. Mastic is not a very common ingredient in perfume, yielding only 39 items on Basenotes directory - two of them produced by yours truly (although they are not the only mastic fragrances by Ayala Moriel Parfums). Sahleb is a smooth, buttery orris fragrance; while Virgo zodiac parfum oil is more of a balsamic-woody floral with accessory notes of spicy-green aspects (cardamom and fennel among them).
Other perfumes I perceive as having a mastic note, are Nature Millénaire pour Homme (Yves Rocher, 2000), Kyoto (Commes de Garçon), both having the mastic resin note. As for the mastic leaf and twigs and branches - an allusion to them can be found in green, crisp Chypres (the likes of Eau de Sisley 2).

Religious Uses:
The Greek use mastic in preparation of Myron, an anointing oil used in the Greek Orthodox churches' chrismation ceremony.

Traditional & Practical Uses: 
Oil of mastic is used much like turpentine is in the West, in paint Freshly picked branches of P. lentiscus are a traditional raw material for Mediterranean-style basket-weaving. The abundance of available material and the ease of use (aside from removing the leaves, there is no need for pre-soaking or any other kind of processing prior to weaving).



          GeekList Item: Item for Geeklist "July '17 US Math Trade"

An item Board Game: Morocco has been added to the geeklist July '17 US Math Trade
          A weekend in Tangier and leaving Morocco   
     Before we left Tétouan, Green Olive Arts helped us make a departure plan. It's tricky to get a family of five with 10 pieces of luggage out of the medina through a busy morning market. No cars enter the tiny alleys where the riad is, so we felt pretty rooted in. They helped us arrange a taxi with a large trunk for luggage to meet us in the plaza, and they found a man with a cart.

There was about an hour of agonized waiting, I was so worried the man with the cart wouldn't find our door so we stood with the door open peering down the alley. At exactly 10:30am I was flooded with relief when I saw the cart man and with Rachel from the Arthouse, strolling beside him! I wish I had a photo of all our luggage on the cart as we left the medina for the last time, as it was quite a sight! He tied it all on with a thick ancient rope to a giant wheel barrow like cart, lifted the front with all our luggage and headed thru the market to the plaza at breakneck speeds. I couldn't believe after so much work he only asked for 40 dryhams ($4 USD), I think I said "Shokran" (thank you) about a million times.



This is the taxi leaving Tétouan.


The ride to Tangier was only about an hour.


There's always a lot of donkeys around once you get out of the cities.


For some reason there are also a lot of flags on this route as well.


Tangier is a much bigger city than Tétouan. This is our view from the 7th floor apartment where we stayed. The beach and boardwalk were just around the corner and THIS place had a/c in the bedrooms! We hadn't had much a/c in Morocco since we'd arrived.


This is the hawk that kept coming to the window and watching us. I think because we were close to the top floor it must have had a nest on the roof and was keeping an eye on us. It kept coming back to watch us the whole time we were there.


After we settled we took a walk around and found the beach and boardwalk.


It seemed like we were in a nice area of the city.


As usual Naomi headed straight for the water.


Going wading in the Mediterranean.


This is the view from our bedroom. As you can see the building is covered in wires. This is how it is all over Morocco.


Mike and I took some time to draw in Tangier. 


Sitting down to draw seemed to help us adjust wherever we were.


I feel I have to share this picture of a crazy wedding limo parked around the corner. 


That evening we went in search of an open restaurant, but most of the close ones were very packed with people breaking their fast with the Ifthar meal. So we went for a walk at dusk to wait for the crowds to clear up.


Sunset on the boardwalk.


Mike waiting patiently. 


Naomi reading and trying to ignore me taking her picture.


And another picture of the boardwalk at dusk... Can you tell I just took photos to kill time while we waited?


The next morning I took Chloe and Naomi to the beach to go swimming. I also went because I really wanted to swim in the Mediterranean Sea. It was awkward though. Women aren't allowed to go swimming during Ramadan, so we were the only women there who went swimming. There were little girls swimming, and women covered from head to toe not swimming, but we attracted a lot of attention in our swim suits. Chloe and Naomi are the white specks in the water in this picture.


This is one of the horses on the beach. There were also camels you could ride, but after swimming for a while we just wanted to leave.


Later that day we headed over to the mall to meet up with our friend Amira. We knew her from Tétouan, but after her school ended she moved to Tangier to stay with her brother and work in the mall.


I'm so glad we saw her before we left. 


It was also very interesting to go to a mall in Tangier. Seeing local fashions on display, and checking out the sushi in the food court seemed very normal.


The "Tanja Got a Talent" sign. :)


Before we knew it our weekend in Tangier was over and we were heading south on the train to Casablanca.


One stop on the train had several wagons like this lined up instead of taxis.


These are some of our bags on the train (before they were checked in to Air Canada and misplaced, but that's a different story)


The girls resting on the 6 hour train ride in our compartment.


The train ride back was more comfortable because Ramadan was finally over and the train was bringing around a food cart we could buy from. Also we could openly eat and drink in front of Moroccans without offense which is a huge relief.


We all managed to wrangle our bags off the train in Casablanca and into the station. Finding a taxi was also no trouble, but as we drove to the airbnb, the tai driver called the host for us and she apparently thought we were coming an hour later, so we had some more waiting to do.


Eventually, though, we got inside, and up three flights of steps with all our bags.


The apartment was pretty huge .


With many rooms and many couches and almost enough beds.


But it was just for one night, well almost one night. We had to get to the airport by 5am so we had a 4:30am pickup.


We went out in search of dinner, and found this wire with an amazing amount of shoes!


We walked around and noticed most places were closed.


Palm tree by an open restaurant. We finally found a place and went in.


When the waiter came over we remembered that while Ramadan was over there was a new holiday called Eid-al Fitr which means that all stores close and people are home having a big feast. This restaurant was only serving drinks and ice cream. So Mike glanced at the menu and picked the banana split for us to try while we pondered what to do for dinner. Then the waiter said quickly in French, "You want four banana splits?"  Mike said "Oui." (he doesn't speak French).  As the waiter walked away my brain caught up with what the waiter just said (Have I mentioned that I'm awful at French?). So here we are (above) waiting for our many banana splits.


They were pretty good banana splits, except for one flavor of ice cream that none of us could stand. I think it's a sent used in sanitizers in public restrooms in the USA, but here the flavor doesn't have that association. (I recently read that root beer causes the same reaction for Europeans, for the same reason).

Anyway we went back down our street and found an overlooked pizza restaurant that was open.


Success, our efforts yielded the best pizza in Morocco! This pizza was fantastic. We even grabbed some pizza to go as Naomi crashed out in the apartment and was missing dinner. So we needed some for her when she woke up.


3:30am was when we rolled out of bed. 4:30am was when our airport van arrived and before we knew it we were checked into our flight at Casablanca airport. We were officially leaving Morocco....

          Abu Dhabi Airport Now Exempt From US Laptop Ban   
The capital of the United Arab Emirates became the first city to be exempt from a U.S. ban on laptop computers being in the cabins of airplanes coming from the Mideast, the country's flag carrier said Sunday.   Long-haul airline Etihad said it welcomed the decision by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which comes "subject to enhanced security measures" at Abu Dhabi International Airport. That airport already has a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility that allows passengers to clear screening they'd otherwise have to go through when landing in America.   Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan said U.S. officials already had seen that ``the measures have been implemented correctly and to the full extent required'' in Abu Dhabi. He said American monitors would make further visits to ensure the checks were being done properly.   "The enhanced security measures, both seen and unseen, include enhanced screening of passengers and electronic devices," Lapan said, declining to elaborate. "We commend Etihad for working swiftly to implement these additional measures. Their efforts are a model for both foreign and domestic airlines."   Abu Dhabi International Airport did not respond to a request for comment. The airport is home to Etihad, which has over 120 planes in its fleet and 204 aircraft on order. It operates 45 flights a week between Abu Dhabi and six cities in the U.S.   The U.S. ban, first announced in March as a security measure, now applies to nonstop U.S.-bound flights from nine international airports in Amman, Jordan; Kuwait City; Cairo; Istanbul; Jeddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Casablanca, Morocco; Doha, Qatar; and Dubai in the UAE.   In late May, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he was considering banning laptops from the passenger cabins of all international flights to and from the United States. Kelly's comments came after U.S. President Donald Trump shared highly classified intelligence about the Islamic State group wanting to use laptops to target aircraft with senior Russian officials visiting the White House.   The laptop ban, as well as a Trump administration travel ban on six predominantly Muslim nations, has hurt Gulf carriers. Dubai-based Emirates has slashed 20 percent of its flights to America in the wake of those decisions. The airline also has been trying to get the laptop ban lifted for its direct flights to the U.S. It did not immediately respond to a request for comment.   Dubai International Airport, Emirates' home, is the world's busiest international air travel hub. Meanwhile, long-haul carrier Qatar Airways has been hurt amid a diplomatic dispute with Arab nations that has seen its own routes in the region cut off.   All this also comes amid a wider dispute between Gulf airlines and American carriers, which accuse the Middle East airlines of flooding the market with capacity while receiving billions of dollars of unfair government subsidies. The Gulf carriers all vigorously deny that.

The photography was actually the first thing that drew my attention to Semikah Textiles. Although there are loads of beautiful images on their webpage of the stunning rugs I really loved the vibe of the pictures of them sourcing the rugs and meeting the makers, maybe because like many others, I would consider this to be my absolute dream job!!

          Comment on Qatar crisis from the Iranian view: Waiting for a feudal revolution, still… by Wiganer   
Western monarchies are fundamentally Christian - Queen Elizabeth II is titular head of the Church of England. If the particular monarch sees the divine basis of his or her inherited position in terms of imposing obligations rather than conferring entitlements, then monarchs can be forces for democracy and enlightenment: Juan Carlos II of Spain, who played a key role in removing Francoism, also showed great personal courage during the attempted coup by Tejero. Very much on the obligations part of the monarchical spectrum, like her father and grandfather, HMQ (to use the official British acronym) has for decades now acted as one-woman foreign intelligence service who has met personally most living world leaders. The story of her in the 1990's personally driving the King of Saudi Arabia at very high speeds along the narrow roads of the Sandringham estate, until he pleaded for her to slow down, is now officially endorsed (women can't drive in Saudi). Her grandfather (George V) played a major role in the constitutional crisis of 1912 in limiting the power of the aristocracy and turning Britain to a democracy: her father (George VI) basically worried himself to death from the knowledge that one false step during WWII could destroy morale (he and his wife spent many nights in the royal train in railway tunnels, being shunted from one nerve-wracking "morale boosting" engagement to another). Britain also shows how wrong 'uns like the Nazi-sympathising Edward VIII or crackpot neopagan Charles can be sidelined in mature democracies: parliamentary democracies tend to do better with constitutional monarchs than with inoffensive nonentities such as Wulff or Pertini. When the Gulf monarchies were British protectorates (until 1966?) there was the hope that Muslim monarchies would evolve like Christian ones, first going through a phase of enlightened despotism (say Frederick the Great of Prussia, Catherine II of Russia, Joseph II of Austria) which then democratised. There's still hope of this happening at the other end of the Arab world, in Morocco (I was in Casablanca a couple of years ago, and the adverts showing modern European-looking mums doing yuppie type things, with nary a hijab in sight, were everywhere). Of course, there is very little an enlightened monarch can do, even at great personal risk (if nothing else, Mohammed VI is a very brave man), when many of the population are bloodthirsty religious maniacs. Look what happened to Tsar Alexander II, the "Tsar Liberator" (although the actual assassins in this case were on the left, Narodnaya Vol'nya, "People's Will", Chyornye Sot, "Black Hundreds" disposed of many liberals)

          The Only Way Out Of The Qatar Crisis   

Authored by Ahmed Chari via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Qatar has been known for years as a small peninsula nation that punches far above its weight. Its immense oil wealth and enormous influence, through its English- and Arabic-language Al Jazeera channels, have given it diplomatic clout across the Arab world. Its soft power has been felt in negotiations in Darfur, Tripoli, Sanaa and elsewhere. Everywhere it has been either admired or envied.

Now Qatar is on its back feet, fighting off criticism from all sides. Qatar’s candidate to run UNESCO is now almost certain to lose; a few months earlier, he was the frontrunner. Activists are pressing FIFA to bar Qatar from hosting the World Cup. Pressure is mounting to close the U.S. air base in Qatar; U.S. Air Force general Charles Wald, who opened the base in 2001, is now, in retirement, publicly calling for its closure. A coalition of thirty-four thousand predominantly African American churches protested Qatar in Washington, DC, on June 28, citing Qatar’s persecution of Christians, Jews and other religious minorities. (Qatar bans crosses on the outside of churches and bars public prayer by Christians, even though there may be more Christians in the country than the three hundred thousand native Qataris.) The protest, outside Qatar’s embassy at Twenty-Fifth and M Streets, is the first-ever public demonstration against Qatar in Washington. It won’t be the last.

Even more dramatically, Qatar’s neighbors and allies have turned against it. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and closed their air and sea ports to Qatar’s planes and ships. The Arab-language media is full of venom directed at Qatar. Now it is either pitied or feared.

What happened? Qatar was found to be funding the enemies of America and its Arab allies. Washington policymakers are concerned that Qatar has funded, according to the U.S. State department, Al Qaeda affiliates in Syria as well as elements of ISIS—the very groups America is bombing in its campaign to liberate northern Iraq. It also supports Hamas, which both the United States and EU have designated as a terrorist organization. Bahrain believes that Qatar is supporting armed opposition groups against its royal family. The Saudis fault Qatar’s financial support to the Yemen-based Houthi rebels (opposed to the Saudi regime) as well as Qatar’s backing for violent opposition groups in the Saudi province of Al Qatif, which is mostly Shia.

Meanwhile, Qatar has offered a sanctuary to the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists. The oil sheikhdom also shelters the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual guide, Yusuf al-Qaradawi; Khaled Meshal, who was until recently the leader of Hamas; and Abbassi Madani, an Algerian Islamist leader—as well as many Taliban leaders. Nor was Qatar simply giving these extremists a roof and a cot. It gave them a platform, through Al Jazeera, to raise funds, woo followers and boost their prestige.

All of this duplicity and support might have been tolerable, as it too often was before the September 11 attacks, were it not for the Arab world’s confrontation with Iran. The Islamic Republic is already engaged in both a direct and a proxy war against the Sunni states. Iran’s state-run broadcasts refer to Bahrain as Iran’s “eighteenth province,” even though Persians have not ruled there for some three centuries, and call on believers to end Saudi control over the Muslim holy places in Mecca and Medina. The UAE has a bitter territorial dispute with Iran. And let’s not forget that Iran is developing atomic weapons and the missiles to carry them; it may be planning to settle its religious and regional arguments with a Hiroshima-style blast.

In contrast with its neighbors’ conflicts with Iran, Qatar is in business with the Islamic Republic. It shares with Iran the Pars Sud gas field, one of the world’s largest.

While Iran was under embargo, Qatar continued to sell Iranian natural gas to Europe. The shared gas field gave Qatar the perfect cover to help its partner in crime, Iran. Yet shipping by sea is slow, costly and risky. Qatar proposed a pipeline across Syria to move Iran’s energy products (as well as its own) to the power-starved European market. A pipeline would have cut costs while strengthening Qatar’s hand. The Syrian dictator soon put an end to this pipe dream.

In short, Qatar’s support for Iran was the last straw for its neighbors. The U.S. State Department is trying to be neutral, and is asking for evidence of Qatar’s transgressions. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has been far clearer: he has demanded that Qatar stop funding America’s enemies.

Clearly, Qatar must stop opening the money spigot for groups designated as terrorists by its allies, and it should turn over the terror leaders it is hosting to face justice in their native lands.

The U.S. State Department should also invite Morocco to help. Iran, and indirectly Qatar, is backing armed uprisings by minority Shia groups across the Sunni-majority Arab world. Morocco’s king, Mohammed VI, is also his kingdom’s supreme religious ruler. His words and moderate religious teachings have calmed restive Shia populations and inspired them to oppose violence. Under the king’s leadership, Morocco is now enjoying a new influence in Africa. Mohammed VI, as a spokesman for political and religious moderation, is an important voice to combat Shia uprisings and Sunni reprisals.

Qatar must stop fanning the flames of Islamic division, and Morocco and the Gulf Arabs should be given a real chance to head off a religious civil war between Sunnis and Shia, which could cost millions of lives in a war that could drag on for decades.

We have come to a time when confrontation with Qatar will produce peace, and compromising will lead to war. Trump’s instincts are right. If Qatar doesn’t change, the world around it will.

          Ghana benefits from Germany's 'Compact with Africa' Programme   

Ghana is one of the three countries in Africa to benefit from Germany's 'Compact with Africa' Programme.

The programme will assist Ghana improve conditions for sustainable private sector investment, infrastructure, economic participation, and generate employment in the country.

This was made known by the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, at a meeting with the Ghanaian community resident in Germany, held in honour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in Berlin.

Addressing the meeting, the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, explained that the Compact with Africa Programme, initially, had Senegal, Cote d'Ivoire, Tunisia, Morocco and Rwanda, as countries that had been signed onto the Compact.

Only three countries out of the five, he said, were to be beneficiaries of €100 million that came along with signing the Compact. However, Ghana was chosen as one of the countries signed onto the Compact.

The Finance Minister, attributed this to the leadership of President Akufo Addo He said “Ghana is back, we were no where near it (Compact with Africa Programme); but the work President Akufo Addo has been doing has resulted in the Germans saying, 'why don't we get Ghana involved in this?' And, that is why we are here”.

Ken Ofori-Atta noted that this development “was a real sign of confidence in Ghana”. We thought that it was over. Then they (Germans) came back a couple of weeks later, in March 2017, and said that 'we should put our money where our mouth is. So let us select three countries in Africa where we can have a bilateral relationship with, and they selected two of the countries who were already in the Compact - Tunisia and Cote d'Ivoire - and they said Ghana be part of it, that is the third country''.

He continued, 'They also said here is another 100 million Euros, do something with it. So you are beginning to see the response the world is having. We are beginning to see a sense of a re-generation; the Black Star is shining again. We certainly are not a poor country, as President Akufo Addo said. We are also not chickens, as Aggrey said, we are eagles and, as such, we should fly”.

G20 Compact with Africa, an initiative led by G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Presidents, is designed to make African countries more appealing to investors primarily through regulatory and fiscal policies, thus promoting infrastructure and economic development. A first step is currently being taken with five pilot countries: Senegal, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Rwanda and Tunisia. END

If the music of Gaytheist were a vehicle, it would be a semi, late on its delivery, blazing down I-5, the speed limit only a laughable suggestion as the trucker begins to have Tron-like hallucinations from 38 hours of no sleep and caffeine-pill cocktails. With only three members, Gaytheist leaves you wondering how they create such a heavy, intricate layering of sound. CAMERON CROWELL

Baby Driver
Edgar Wright's latest is wall-to-wall music, and it might take you a track or two to fall into the stylized rhythm that marks Wright’s work—from Shaun of the Dead to Hot Fuzz to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World—and drop-kicks naturalism to the curb. But once its tires grip pavement, Baby Driver becomes a full-throttle ballet of motion, color, and sound. The tunes are great, the getaway chases will leave you breathless, and the motley team of robbers—which includes Kevin Spacey, Eiza González, and an excellent Jamie Foxx—comes from the kind of screenplay you wish Tarantino still wrote.

La Luz, Savila
La Luz is history’s greatest surf rock band. Whew, now that we got that out of the way—they formed in Seattle in the early 2010s, then moved to LA, where they currently reside. Garage legend Ty Segall produced their last album, 2015’s Weirdo Shrine, which sounds like the Shirelles went to the beach during a thunderstorm. Those doo-wop harmonies sound even better live, and sometimes they even bust out choreographed dance moves. CIARA DOLAN

Maybe the most perfectly constructed film in cinema history. Maybe. I’m sure someone out there has an argument on deck, but I’m betting their champion of choice doesn’t include a giant pit of snakes; a fight inside, on top of, and hanging off the front of a truck at 50 mph; a holy box that melts Nazi faces like Totino’s Party Pizza; and—most importantly—the presence of peak Harrison Ford in all his sweaty, smirky, silly-yet-sexy glory.

The Districts, The Spirit of the Beehive
The Spirit of the Beehive is a strange name for a band, but it’s the perfect name for the buzzy little combo opening for not-bad Philly rock act the Districts tonight at the Doug Fir. They’ve got a considerable talent for writing fine indie-pop songs and then dressing them up in weirdness. Their new album, Pleasure Suck, delivers one gentle banger after another. It’s always hiding out under a layer of fuzz, occasionally pitch-shifted, and often shares space with distorted percussion, burbling synthesizer, distant fiddle, squealing feedback, or a spoken-word sample. Despite the sonic wanderings, the Spirit of the Beehive’s melodic sensibility always comes through. They’re kind of like a cross between Beck and Neutral Milk Hotel, and that’s not a bad place to land, friends. BEN SALMON

Enigmatic 9th Ward art freaks Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been staples of the Big Easy’s experimental scene since the early ’90s. Quintron’s infamous club, the Spellcaster Lodge, has played host to many a late-night rager since its inception and rebuild following Hurricane Katrina. Their live shows typically feature some of Quintron’s own musical inventions, like the Drum Buddy—a mechanically-rotating, five-oscillator, light-activated drum machine—as well as his custom-made Hammond organ/Fender Rhodes synthesizer contraption, made to look like the front end of a hotrod. It’s largely a one-man band operation, with Miss Pussycat providing backup vocals and various percussive elements, but the sheer eccentricity of the project is about as kitschy and party-ready as anything you’ll ever hope to hear or see.

          Money in Swiss Banks: India Slips to 88th Place; UK on Top   

Swiss Bank

India has slipped to 88th place in terms of money parked by its citizens with Swiss banks, while the UK remains on the top.

Also, the money officially held by Indians with banks in Switzerland now accounts for a meagre 0.04 per cent of the total funds kept by all foreign clients in the Swiss banking system, as per an analysis of the latest figures compiled by the SNB (Swiss National Bank) as on 2016-end.

India was placed at 75th position in 2015 and at 61st in the year before that, though it used to be among top-50 countries in terms of holdings in Swiss banks till 2007. The country was ranked highest at 37th place in the year 2004. The latest data from Zurich-based SNB comes ahead of a new framework for automatic exchange of information between Switzerland and India to help check the black money menace.

The funds, described by SNB as 'liabilities' of Swiss banks or 'amounts due to' their clients, are the official figures disclosed by the Swiss authorities and do not indicate to the quantum of the much-debated alleged black money held by Indians in the safe havens of Switzerland.

SNB's official figures also do not include the money that Indians, NRIs or others might have in Swiss banks in the names of entities from different countries. There is a view that the Indians alleged to have parked their illicit money in Swiss banks in the past may have shifted the funds to other locations after a global clampdown began on the mighty banking secrecy practices in Switzerland.

Swiss banks have also said Indians have "few deposits" in Swiss banks compared to other global financial hubs like Singapore and Hong Kong amid stepped-up efforts to check the black money menace. The total money held in Swiss banks by foreign clients from across the world, incidentally rose by a small margin from 1.41 trillion Swiss francs (CHF) to CHF 1.42 trillion during 2016.

In terms of individual countries, the UK accounted for the largest chunk at about CHF 359 (over 25 per cent) of the total foreign money with Swiss banks. The US came second with nearly CHF 177 billion or about 14 per cent. No other country accounted for a double-digit percentage share, while others in the top-ten included West Indies, France, Bahamas, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Hong Kong and Luxembourg.

Indians' share not even one-hundredth of the total money. India is now ranked 88th with 676 million Swiss francs (about Rs 4,500 crore) -- a record low after falling for three consecutive years amid a continuing clampdown on the suspected black money stashed behind their famed secrecy walls.

The share of Indians' money in the total foreign funds of Swiss banks also fell to 0.04 per cent (from 0.08 per cent in 2015). Pakistan continued to remain placed higher than India at 71st place (although down from 69th in 2015) with about CHF 1.4 billion -- though down to below 0.1 per cent of total foreign money parked with Swiss banks.

India was also the lowest ranked among the BRICS nations -- Russia was ranked 19th (CHF 15.6 billion), China 25th (CHF 9.6 billion), Brazil 52nd (CHF 2.7 billion) and South Africa 61st (CHF 2.2 billion).

Among these five, only China has moved up. Others ranked higher than India included Mauritius, Iran, Morocco, Kenya, Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Angola, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Canada and Mexico. A number of offshore financial centres are also ranked higher including Cayman Islands, Panama, Cyprus, Marshall Islands, Bermuda, Seychelles, Isle of Man and Gibraltar.

Among India's neighbouring countries, Bangladesh was ranked 89th (CHF 667.5 million), while Nepal was 150th (CHF 312 million), Sri Lanka was 151st (CHF 307 million) and Bhutan was way below at 282nd (about half a million Swiss francs).

The total money belonging to the developed countries fell to CHF 824 billion, while those from developing nations actually rose marginally to CHF 208 million. The money from developing economies in Asia-Pacific region rose to CHF 50 billion.

The funds parked in Swiss banks from offshore financial centres rose to CHF 389 billion. India was ranked in top-50 continuously between 1996 and 2007, but started declining after that -- 55th in 2008, 59th in 2009 and 2010 each, 55th again in 2011, 71st in 2012 and then to 58th in 2013.

          Abu Dhabi airport now exempt from US laptop ban   

The capital of the United Arab Emirates became the first city to be exempt from a U.S. ban on laptop computers being in the cabins of airplanes coming from the Mideast, the country's flag carrier said Sunday.

Long-haul airline Etihad said it welcomed the decision by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which comes "subject to enhanced security measures" at Abu Dhabi International Airport. That airport already has a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility that allows passengers to clear screening they'd otherwise have to go through when landing in America.

Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan said U.S. officials already had seen that "the measures have been implemented correctly and to the full extent required" in Abu Dhabi. He said American monitors would make further visits to ensure the checks were being done properly.

"The enhanced security measures, both seen and unseen, include enhanced screening of passengers and electronic devices," Lapan said, declining to elaborate. "We commend Etihad for working swiftly to implement these additional measures. Their efforts are a model for both foreign and domestic airlines."

Abu Dhabi International Airport did not respond to a request for comment. The airport is home to Etihad, which has over 120 planes in its fleet and 204 aircraft on order. It operates 45 flights a week between Abu Dhabi and six cities in the U.S.

The U.S. ban, first announced in March as a security measure, now applies to nonstop U.S.-bound flights from nine international airports in Amman, Jordan; Kuwait City; Cairo; Istanbul; Jeddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Casablanca, Morocco; Doha, Qatar; and Dubai in the UAE.

In late May, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he was considering banning laptops from the passenger cabins of all international flights to and from the United States. Kelly's comments came after U.S. President Donald Trump shared highly classified intelligence about the Islamic State group wanting to use laptops to target aircraft with senior Russian officials visiting the White House.

The laptop ban, as well as a Trump administration travel ban on six predominantly Muslim nations, has hurt Gulf carriers. Dubai-based Emirates has slashed 20 percent of its flights to America in the wake of those decisions. The airline also has been trying to get the laptop ban lifted for its direct flights to the U.S. It did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Dubai International Airport, Emirates' home, is the world's busiest international air travel hub. Meanwhile, long-haul carrier Qatar Airways has been hurt amid a diplomatic dispute with Arab nations that has seen its own routes in the region cut off.

All this also comes amid a wider dispute between Gulf airlines and American carriers, which accuse the Middle East airlines of flooding the market with capacity while receiving billions of dollars of unfair government subsidies. The Gulf carriers all vigorously deny that.


          Location, Local, Location   
By Tom Inglesby


The real estate sales mantra, “Location, Location, Location!” can fit nicely with the independent filmmaker’s mantra, “Keep It Cheap.” The majors can send scouts to find just the right location for a film or TV show based on the script writer’s concepts. It often seems that the big budget productions send crews and actors around the world looking for the perfect spot to resemble another spot that didn’t quite look like what it was supposed to look like, even though it was the actual spot being portrayed. Case in point: shooting the latest Pirates of the Caribbean… in Australia. Or Portland, Ore., sited for Boston in the TV show Leverage.

Okay, we recognize that several factors come into play when a studio looks for a site for a project that, according to the writer—or the author of the book that the project is based upon—is a particular city or area. For obvious reasons, Game of Thrones and The Hobbit are not going to be shot in Westeros and Middle Earth, respectively. The former travels to Northern Ireland, Spain, Morocco, Iceland, and Croatia while the multiple parts of the Lord of the Rings franchise have been shot in New Zealand and touched up in the UK.

But why choose these locations over others? Often that come down to money, or to put it in the term many producers prefer, incentives. Where will they offer the best tax breaks, local crew rebates, quickest and easiest permitting, and so forth? States compete to land those blockbusters-in-the-making and some literally go broke doing so. Not the whole state, but the film commission office, where the budgets can fluctuate wildly year-to-year and success is measured in tourist influx. Few locations, outside of LA, Las Vegas and NYC, have achieved this better than Albuquerque. The six-year run of Breaking Bad has made “Duke City” a choice vacation destination for fans to come and explore the sites familiar to them from the show. Car wash, anyone?

Scenery, of course, plays a role in the choices producers make. How exotic, how typical, how outlandish; the camera can catch it all in long shot and close up. Game of Thrones seems to pick shooting sites for the visuals, uncommon to most of the world, that convey an other-worldly—or at least other time—feeling. And once the fans find out where those scenes were shot, the tourist trade goes up. And find out they do with fan sites on the Internet hounding the production for inside information.

But those are big studio productions. What about the indie producer? Not likely to have a budget big enough for the film and location scouts, many turn to another mantra, that of Fiction Writing 101: “Write what you know.” Or in paraphrase: “Go where you know.” That can help in many ways, not the least of which is cutting travel costs. Shoot in your home town and you can go home every night. Well, maybe not. Check out the philosophy of John Putch in our June issue’s Spotlight feature. His low-budget shorts were shot in his hometown area, southern Pennsylvania, but still required cast and crew to stay in hotels and motels.

And that brings up another cost savings, if you have the chutzpah to work on it: trade outs. “No promises, but we can make (fill in name of motel, restaurant, car wash) famous by showing it in our film. Oh, in return, we sure could use (fill in trade: sleeping rooms, meals, car washes) on the house.”

Hey, it works for travel writers…


          The Only Way Out Of The Qatar Crisis   

Authored by Ahmed Chari via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Qatar has been known for years as a small peninsula nation that punches far above its weight. Its immense oil wealth and enormous influence, through its English- and Arabic-language Al Jazeera channels, have given it diplomatic clout across the Arab world. Its soft power has been felt in negotiations in Darfur, Tripoli, Sanaa and elsewhere. Everywhere it has been either admired or envied.

Now Qatar is on its back feet, fighting off criticism from all sides. Qatar’s candidate to run UNESCO is now almost certain to lose; a few months earlier, he was the frontrunner. Activists are pressing FIFA to bar Qatar from hosting the World Cup. Pressure is mounting to close the U.S. air base in Qatar; U.S. Air Force general Charles Wald, who opened the base in 2001, is now, in retirement, publicly calling for its closure. A coalition of thirty-four thousand predominantly African American churches protested Qatar in Washington, DC, on June 28, citing Qatar’s persecution of Christians, Jews and other religious minorities. (Qatar bans crosses on the outside of churches and bars public prayer by Christians, even though there may be more Christians in the country than the three hundred thousand native Qataris.) The protest, outside Qatar’s embassy at Twenty-Fifth and M Streets, is the first-ever public demonstration against Qatar in Washington. It won’t be the last.

Even more dramatically, Qatar’s neighbors and allies have turned against it. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and closed their air and sea ports to Qatar’s planes and ships. The Arab-language media is full of venom directed at Qatar. Now it is either pitied or feared.

What happened? Qatar was found to be funding the enemies of America and its Arab allies. Washington policymakers are concerned that Qatar has funded, according to the U.S. State department, Al Qaeda affiliates in Syria as well as elements of ISIS—the very groups America is bombing in its campaign to liberate northern Iraq. It also supports Hamas, which both the United States and EU have designated as a terrorist organization. Bahrain believes that Qatar is supporting armed opposition groups against its royal family. The Saudis fault Qatar’s financial support to the Yemen-based Houthi rebels (opposed to the Saudi regime) as well as Qatar’s backing for violent opposition groups in the Saudi province of Al Qatif, which is mostly Shia.

Meanwhile, Qatar has offered a sanctuary to the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists. The oil sheikhdom also shelters the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual guide, Yusuf al-Qaradawi; Khaled Meshal, who was until recently the leader of Hamas; and Abbassi Madani, an Algerian Islamist leader—as well as many Taliban leaders. Nor was Qatar simply giving these extremists a roof and a cot. It gave them a platform, through Al Jazeera, to raise funds, woo followers and boost their prestige.

All of this duplicity and support might have been tolerable, as it too often was before the September 11 attacks, were it not for the Arab world’s confrontation with Iran. The Islamic Republic is already engaged in both a direct and a proxy war against the Sunni states. Iran’s state-run broadcasts refer to Bahrain as Iran’s “eighteenth province,” even though Persians have not ruled there for some three centuries, and call on believers to end Saudi control over the Muslim holy places in Mecca and Medina. The UAE has a bitter territorial dispute with Iran. And let’s not forget that Iran is developing atomic weapons and the missiles to carry them; it may be planning to settle its religious and regional arguments with a Hiroshima-style blast.

In contrast with its neighbors’ conflicts with Iran, Qatar is in business with the Islamic Republic. It shares with Iran the Pars Sud gas field, one of the world’s largest.

While Iran was under embargo, Qatar continued to sell Iranian natural gas to Europe. The shared gas field gave Qatar the perfect cover to help its partner in crime, Iran. Yet shipping by sea is slow, costly and risky. Qatar proposed a pipeline across Syria to move Iran’s energy products (as well as its own) to the power-starved European market. A pipeline would have cut costs while strengthening Qatar’s hand. The Syrian dictator soon put an end to this pipe dream.

In short, Qatar’s support for Iran was the last straw for its neighbors. The U.S. State Department is trying to be neutral, and is asking for evidence of Qatar’s transgressions. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has been far clearer: he has demanded that Qatar stop funding America’s enemies.

Clearly, Qatar must stop opening the money spigot for groups designated as terrorists by its allies, and it should turn over the terror leaders it is hosting to face justice in their native lands.

The U.S. State Department should also invite Morocco to help. Iran, and indirectly Qatar, is backing armed uprisings by minority Shia groups across the Sunni-majority Arab world. Morocco’s king, Mohammed VI, is also his kingdom’s supreme religious ruler. His words and moderate religious teachings have calmed restive Shia populations and inspired them to oppose violence. Under the king’s leadership, Morocco is now enjoying a new influence in Africa. Mohammed VI, as a spokesman for political and religious moderation, is an important voice to combat Shia uprisings and Sunni reprisals.

Qatar must stop fanning the flames of Islamic division, and Morocco and the Gulf Arabs should be given a real chance to head off a religious civil war between Sunnis and Shia, which could cost millions of lives in a war that could drag on for decades.

We have come to a time when confrontation with Qatar will produce peace, and compromising will lead to war. Trump’s instincts are right. If Qatar doesn’t change, the world around it will.


          A fatwa against sexual violence: the story of a historic congress of female Islamic scholars   

Can women interpret Islamic law? Scholars who think so recently gathered in Indonesia, where fatwas were also issued against child marriage and environmental degradation.

One of the religious deliberation sessions. One of the religious deliberation sessions. Photo: Dr Nur Rofiah. Can women interpret Islamic law? This question would have been a ‘no-brainer’ to a Muslim from Damascus in the 12th century, when women served as renowned teachers of the Islamic tradition, and the opinions of women jurists on questions of Islamic law carried weight comparable to that of male jurists.

Yet, if one asks a Muslim today: have you ever asked a woman for an interpretation of Islamic law?, the answer from Dakar to Dhaka, from Sarajevo to Cape Town, from Jakarta to Ann Arbor will usually be “no”.

Women are not asked to interpret Islamic law, and few expect them to do so. Very often, this is because women are not sufficiently trained for this work. If they are, they tend to be consulted only on so-called ‘women’s issues’ such as child rearing, a wife’s duties towards her husband and towards others in the family, household organisation, and hygiene.

In recent years, however, Muslims in different parts of the world have started to address gender imbalances in juristic expertise. In India, Turkey and Morocco, programs have been set up to train women as muftis (jurists who can issue fatwas or expert legal opinions). Judicial bureaucracies in Malaysia and the Palestinian Authority have begun to hire female judges in their sharia courts.

Recently, Indonesian organisations also joined forces to convene the Muslim world’s first congress of ulama perempuan: women Islamic scholars.

This historic event, held in late April in Cirebon, West Java, was nothing short of a breakthrough in terms of re-establishing the long-lost juristic authority of women to produce Islamic legal recommendations and rulings. It concluded with the issuance of three historic fatwas – against sexual violence, child marriage, and environmental degradation exacerbating gender inequality.  

Between us, we have studied Islamic authority and gender for decades. We interviewed several of the women scholars, as well as some of the male attendees, involved in the event to learn more about it and the deliberations process. We have also been able to analyse some of the copious explanatory material issued by the congress.

It was nothing short of a breakthrough in terms of re-establishing women's juristic authority

Women’s juristic authority was squarely on the agenda. Such authority can manifest itself in Islam in several ways including by leading prayer, reciting the Qur’an, delivering a sermon, transmitting a hadith (a saying of the prophet). The pinnacle of this authority is the ability to interpret Islamic sources to make recommendations of behaviour in the here and now.

In most contemporary Muslim societies, this is exercised in two main ways. The first is by issuing fatwas. These are legal recommendations based typically on interpretations of the Qur’an and hadith. (Different sects in Islam regard different hadiths as authentic, and therefore the specific source material differs from sect to sect.)

A person trained to issue a fatwa is called a mufti, with the feminine form in Arabic muftiya. Fatwas are only recommendations and they are not binding. But they can carry great weight. In some countries, policy makers take fatwas of leading Islamic authorities into account when, for example, considering reforms to family law, inheritance, Islamic finance or food and medicines regulations.  

The second way this authority is exercised is by serving as a judge in an Islamic court. This requires deep engagement and expertise interpreting religious sources, and the needed erudition and experience can take decades of study and training to acquire.

In Indonesia, for instance, family courts for the Muslim majority apply Islamic law (non-Muslims are subject to civil family law). Since the 1950s, judges for these courts have been trained in the country’s Islamic state institutes.

Although female judges of Islamic law were unheard of at the time – and remain a minority – admission to these institutes was not restricted to men. And so women also completed this advanced training and, from the 1960s, some have been appointed judges in Indonesia’s Islamic courts.

Photo: Dr Nur Rofiah.In 1970, Sudan also appointed women as judges in courts applying what’s known as “non-codified” Islamic law (under which judges must interpret original sources, as there is no codified text issued by the state, like a statute or book of law).

However, it would take another 35 years before women would be appointed to Islamic courts in other countries. Malaysia did so in 2005, the Palestinian Authority in 2009, and Israel just a few months ago appointed the first woman judge to its Islamic courts.

The congress in Indonesia aimed to raise awareness about these developments and strengthen local initiatives to promote women’s juristic authority in Islam. Importantly, it showed that it’s not only women who stand behind this struggle. Male scholars, while a minority, were also among the speakers and attendees.

It’s not only women who stand behind this struggle. Male scholars were also at the congress.  At the congress’s core was “musyawarah keagamaan” (religious deliberation) to formulate fatwas. In many Muslim countries fatwas are associated with individual Islamic leaders, but Indonesia has a long tradition of fatwas issued by Islamic institutions’ ‘fatwa commissions.’

The women ulama at the congress issued three fatwas. This in itself was historic as fatwa issuing has long been monopolised by male clerics. (There are, for example, only seven women ulama out of 67 members of the fatwa commission of Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) – a prominent Islamic organisation, set up by the government in the 1970s).

The first fatwa issued focused on sexual violence. It emphasises that such violence including within marriage (marital rape) is forbidden under Islamic law (haram). It also distinguishes zina (adultery and fornication) from rape. It emphasises that victims must receive psychological, physical and social support – not punishment.

The second fatwa concerns child marriage. It says these practices bring harm (mudarat) to society. The ulama’s accompanying commentary calls for raising the Indonesian legal marriage age for girls from 16 to 18 years. Importantly, as most child marriages are not registered with the state in the first place, the fatwa also tells ordinary Muslims and imams that it is obligatory (wajib) to prevent them.   

The third fatwa links environmental destruction and social inequality. It describes environmental degradation for economic gain as haram and says it has in recent decades in Indonesia exacerbated economic disparity with women the most affected. It notes how drought, for example, adds to the burdens of rural women typically responsible for preparing food and fetching water.

Participants told us that deliberations on this fatwa also touched on issues of land and forest governance, and how deforestation affects women in particular. It demanded that the Indonesian government should impose strict punishments on perpetrators of environmental destruction. Among other things, the discussion noted illegal deforestation campaigns in Indonesia to make space for vast palm oil plantations.

Like the best judges in any society, the women ulama are also experts in diverse contemporary issues.

The women ulama based their religious interpretations on four sources: the verses of the Qur’an, hadith, aqwal ‘ulama (views of religious scholars), and the Indonesian constitution. They used a methodology called “unrestricted reasoning” (istidlal), with stated aims to maximise maslaha (public interest) and reduce mudarat (harm) to arrive at rulings.

The three fatwas show that women ulama also have the ability and the expertise in Islamic sources to formulate these recommendations. They also show that the ulama perempuan do not restrict themselves to the Qur’an, hadith, other classical Islamic texts, and talking about the past. Like the best judges in any society, they are also experts in diverse contemporary issues.

Indeed, Nur Rofi’ah, an expert in Qur’anic and gender studies who took part in the congress, told us that it produced more than fatwas, which usually consist of only a few pages of argumentation. The congress considered a larger range of sources during its deliberations, including evidence of conditions and challenges faced by women. It also produced far longer and more in-depth textual explanations.

Some Indonesian gender rights activists, and Indonesian fatwa committees themselves, use the term sikap keagamaan (religious views) for recommendations that come out of this more complex deliberation process and outcome.

But whether one calls these fatwas or sikap keagamaan, their significance was clear: This congress was a historic step towards reestablishing the long-lost juristic authority of women to produce Islamic legal recommendations and rulings.

WORD OF THE DAY: STENO (27D: Shorthand writer) 

Shorthand is an abbreviated symbolic writing method that increases speed and brevity of writing as compared to longhand, a more common method of writing a language. The process of writing in shorthand is called stenography, from the Greek stenos (narrow) and graphein (to write). It has also been called brachygraphy, from Greek brachys (short) and tachygraphy, from Greek tachys (swift, speedy), depending on whether compression or speed of writing is the goal.

This one was fun! And totally not just because it's the first puzzle I've found easy in a while, for whatever reason. I'm still tired of seeing JILT, always with approximately the same clue, and same goes for ALOE - and the nerd in me is kinda annoyed that SOLO wasn't clued with "Han's first name." (And, for that matter, the feminist in me kinda wishes RICH was clued with "Adrienne!") But those are just SNIT-picks. The fill was good - IONIA, ILSA, ORATES! Plus three whole comic book references. Who knew Superboy had a girlfriend?

The theme was solid for a Monday. I liked how it was accentuated by the showbiz clues like BROADWAY and TV IDOL. I guess if your show makes it to BROADWAY, it wasn't a FLOP?

          NGS Open Gardens visit last Sunday.   

It was a chilly and grey morning when we drove over to Worthing to visit some of the highly acclaimed hidden back gardens of Ambrose Place.

They are described as a horticultural phenomenon with a rich panoply of styles, plantings and layouts. Behind a classic Regency terrace, itself the architectural jewel of Worthing, the gardens draw inspiration from such exotic diversity as Morocco, Provence and the Alhambra to the more traditional sources of the English cottage and Victorian gardens.

Nine of the gardens were open this year and we certainly agree that small can be beautiful! This blog is a long one so grab yourself a cuppa before you start reading …

Looking at the front of the terrace … you would never know what lay behind.

Please don’t be fooled by the blue sky as this a photo taken off Tinternet to show the building …

We paid our £12 entry fee at Ambrose Villa … the first of the gardens to visit. There was a queue of about fifty people so it became difficult to take photos without there being people in them! There was some lovely statuary within this garden …

My favourite shrub here was this black stemmed Hydrangea … Andrewr may be able to name it for me as I see he has a couple of similar looking Hydrangeas.

I must confess to losing track of which photos were taken in which gardens … so I’m just going to put them on in the order they came off my camera! I hope you enjoy viewing them. The terrace have basements … something to be aware of when jostling for space in a crowded garden!

From the photos you should now see just how long and narrow the gardens are. The road the garden gates open on to is a main route into Worthing and I wonder how few people even know the gardens are behind the lovely Sussex flint wall.

I really liked these pots grouped together … the pink and white in the next photo is in a hanging basket which is placed on a plinth.

and how about this for a gorgeous Campanula …

The next garden is described as a Children’s wonderland garden with colourful borders … I loved this quirky garden! See if you do too …

The white pebbles and stones formed a lovely edging to the gravel and carried on from the back gate to the house with great effect …

Hasn’t the owner/s used their imagination here …

Oh look, there’s my husband off to see the Pink Flamingoes …

You thought I was kidding! What a great way to utilise the basement garden for young children …

Who would have expected to see a smashing old fire surround in the garden? My imagination wouldn’t run to that!

We leave the wonderland garden to enter a small courtyard garden with a trough fountain, leads to paved town garden with two further fountains and a brick rill. I would love a rill in my garden … I can but dream!

I should explain that these two square pools are separated by a fairly narrow brick walkway … very effective …

Hopefully you can see the water flowing gently along the rill in the next photo …

This garden had a lovely collection of succulents on display …

Our penultimate garden belongs to a friend of GoY member Ginellie and it was she who alerted me to these gardens being open last weekend. Thanks so much G … it was a pleasure to meet up with you … even though you were very busy on the plant sales table!

This a Mediterranean garden with Alhambra inspired pond and lush borders. I thought it was very well designed with lovely planting. Take a walk around it and decide for your self …

Spot where the secateurs are kept! …

Finally, our last garden to wander round … thank goodness I hear you say! This is a delightful and colourful English garden with three circular areas of Welsh green slate, creating separate outdoor rooms.
Please enjoy the tour …

As you will see from the next photo it was all too much for OH … he needed to sit awhile!

The final photo from this gorgeous garden … lovely pink Rose with a Hollyhock peeping through … so English in style.

Our local newspaper has printed an article since our visit on the number of visitors to the ‘hidden gardens’ last weekend. 826 and the incredible amount of £6,974 raised for charity … told you it was busy!

          Naviera marroquí AML prevé cerrar 2017 con 20% de cuota en Algeciras-Tánger   

Por PortalPortuario.cl/ Europa Press @PortalPortuario La naviera marroquí AML espera cerrar el año 2017 con una facturación de 18,5 millones de euros y alcanzar el 20% de cuota de mercado en la línea Algeciras-Tánger Med, de la que ahora se cumple un año desde que se opera ese trayecto, según indicó el agente general de la naviera en España, Manuel Jiménez Villanova. En declaraciones a Europa Press, Jiménez Villanova precisó que esta semana se cumplió un año desde la puesta en marcha de la línea Algeciras-Tanger Med, donde operan dos barcos en propiedad, el Diagoras y Morocco Star, y además se fletó un tercero de refuerzo para la Operación Paso del Estrecho, de manera que “es la naviera que más barcos opera”. Estos barcos transportan entre 250 vehículos y entre 900 y 1.200 pasajeros. Jiménez Villanova explicó que Africa Morocco Lines es una naviera de pabellón marroquí donde el 51% del accionariado es del Banco Marroquí du Commerce Extérieur (BMCE), el tercer banco de Marruecos, que, según Jiménez Villanova, “se está expandiendo con rapidez en África y está en implantado en Europa, y por el Grupo Attica, gran grupo naviero griego, en un 49%. AML se dedica a la explotación de líneas marítimas regulares de buques desde Marruecos a Europa y actualmente cuenta con una flota de tres barcos, uno de ellos recientemente incorporado para la Operación Paso del Estrecho (OPE) 2017, que servirá de refuerzo y dejará de operar una vez finalice la OPE 2017. No obstante, los dos ferries que se mantienen, dos ro-pax (mercancías y pasajeros) se verán reforzados en septiembre por otro barco ro-ro, de transporte de semiremolques. Asimismo, Jiménez Villanova detalló que antes de la primavera de 2018 espera abrir la línea Almería-Nador, con barcos ro-pax. Además AML espera poner en marcha antes de primavera nuevas líneas entre el sur de Francia, con puertos como Marsella, y Tánger-Med. Para estos proyectos actualmente se están buscando barcos ro-pax, toda vez que “existe el proyecto y el capital social”. Jiménez Villanova espera que este año AML cierre con una cuota de mercado del 20 al 22% en Algeciras-Tánger, donde actualmente posee en torno al 14% “y sabiendo que los competidores nos lo ponen difícil”.

          Drowning mothers   

As refugees try to cross the Mediterranean Sea - women are more likely to drown.

Women protest against the living conditions at a camp in Athens, Greece, in February 2017. Panayotis Tzamaros/ABACAPRESS.COM/PA Images. All rights reserved.

Few images of the current refugee crisis were more horrific than that of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, the Syrian boy who lay dead on a Turkish beach in September 2015, a victim of drowning trying to reach Europe. But Aylan had a mother, and she drowned too. We have no photo of her, no story. We heard of Aylan and his distraught father. But the drowned mother was hardly newsworthy.

As late as June of 2015, men comprised nearly three-quarters of the world’s migration flow, according to UNICEF. This has been replaced by a major spike in the numbers of women and children across the Mediterranean and up through Europe.

More migration, unfortunately, has meant more deaths from people trying to cross borders. Although far more men than women undertake the perilous journey through the North African desert or across the Mediterranean in rubber rafts, it is the women who have a greater risk of dying along the way – most of them at sea.

For every five men who drown in the rubber rafts trying to cross the Mediterranean, six women also die.

Women’s increased risk of death is not only true for the Mediterranean journey. The same lethal pattern can be seen along other borders. A major quantitative study of “border-crossing deaths” by Sharon Pickering and Brandy Cochrane focuses on precisely “where, how and why women die crossing borders”. Using data from 2012, well before the current crisis, Pickering and Cochrane surveyed deaths among female migrants in three areas of the world: in the Mediterranean on the way to the EU, in the Mexican desert on the way to the United States, and in the South Pacific for migrants sailing from Indonesia toward Australia.

The most obvious risk for refugees crossing the seas to the EU or Australia is, of course, drowning. The International Organisation for Migration estimates that 75% of all refugees and migrants who die trying to cross borders drown in the Mediterranean Sea. This route is now the deadliest in the world, and is even more deadly for women than for men. For every five men who drown in the rubber rafts trying to cross the Mediterranean, six women also die. And for the voyage between Indonesia and Australia the ratio is eight women for every five men. Women crossing the Pacific are 26% more likely to drown than men.

On the ships, women and children are often placed below deck by their male family members in order to protect them during the crossing. But this location can quickly become a trap, often with tragic consequences. Rescue teams coming to the aid of capsized ships often find women and children who have suffocated from toxic exhaust fumes or drowned by incoming waters. Women often have poorer swimming skills compared to men, and their attempts to save their children often also lead to their higher risk of drowning. When rescuers discover drowned women, they often find them with heavier clothing that pulled them under the water.

With increasing numbers of women fleeing violence, instability, and poverty in the Middle East and elsewhere, Pickering and Cochrane conclude that the number of women who die trying to cross legal borders will probably increase. Most in danger are those women (and men) who come from countries with limited or no possibility to obtain entry visas, who will be compelled to take the more dangerous sea or desert routes. More men, women and children will die.

The anonymous bodies

Why take a female perspective on the tragic deaths in the Mediterranean? Of course, the drowning of a small child like Aylan Kurdi is as tragic as the death of any woman or young man. But a gender perspective provides a window for showing the relationship between migrants’ deaths and restrictive border controls. Unlike those migrants who die in the desert on their way through Mexico and who can often be identified, the identities of the drowned refugees often remain unknown.

Yet drowning at sea leaves traces, and researchers focusing on “border-crossing deaths” go to great lengths to count the dead and collect information about the drowned persons’ lives and backgrounds. These efforts are important in order to tell a full story of how and why particular persons risked their lives. Research on border deaths, especially border deaths of women, is a way of avoiding the mere counting of drowned bodies. Instead of allowing the dead to slip anonymously out to sea, a more detailed picture of who dies and why helps confirm for us that many of these deaths could have been avoided.

Researching border-crossing deaths is hardly routine. It is research into tragedies that are predictable and unnecessary. These deaths are predictable because restrictive border controls do not stop refugees and migrants. Borders themselves do not eliminate the refugees’ need to migrate; they only force them to take routes that are riskier, deadlier. Denied entry at the border point, they will take the rubber raft across the sea, and capsize.

These deaths are predictable because restrictive border controls do not stop refugees and migrants.

We now have a wealth of information about border-crossing deaths from a variety of sources, including narratives from survivors, rescue crews and from migrant aid organisations. Pickering and Cochrane's study shows that while women refugees and migrants have an increased risk of dying at sea, in the desert, or at the geographical border-crossings, male refugees and migrants have an increased risk of dying after arrival – in detention, under arrest, or in connection with deportation.

The mothers and their children

When women die, it is often in an attempt to save the children whom they have brought with them. The more children, the more risk of death. Evidence shows that refugee families often travel with more than one child on the boats, and that these children are placed together with the women.

The women who take the perilous refugee journey across the Mediterranean or the Pacific, or through the North African or Mexican desert, are not only mothers, they may be pregnant as well. Among a group of Nigerian women whom I studied, most had trudged hundreds of miles through the North African desert to arrive at a port. Several of them had been pregnant during their journey, and many had assisted other women with birth. Most had seen both women and babies die during birth.

Recently, a woman who had just been rescued by the Italian coastguard gave birth on the deck of a rescue ship. Among women from Eritrea and Somalia who ended up in Malta, we have several reports showing a high incidence of pregnancy. At one Red Cross reception centre in Spain, Maja Lund Rasmussen, a researcher, found that 27 out of the 34 female residents were either pregnant or mothers with their own children. 'Monique' from Conakry in Guinea, was pregnant when she sailed from the Moroccan coast to the Spanish border town of Melilla. As she explained, "I travelled to Melilla by boat. It was not a big boat – just a little one (she shows that it is inflated with air, ed.). We were 19 on board. I didn’t want to go. I cried. I was afraid of the sea. You don’t want to go when you see the sea. So I prayed, ‘God, let me survive’. But many people died. Many. It’s very dangerous. It's very, very dangerous at sea. I had never crossed the sea before – it was the first time".

There is little doubt that restrictive border controls have caused women to make life-threatening decisions about when and how to give birth.

Critics of immigration often comment on pregnant migrants when calling for measures against “anchor babies”. These critics view women as using their pregnancy, arriving with babies in their arms in order to obtain legal residence or avoid deportation.

We need more systematic knowledge about the relationship between pregnancy and migration. However, there is little doubt that restrictive border controls have caused women to make life-threatening decisions about when and how to give birth. This is partly because the women may be spending months in a transit area in Libya, Morocco, or other embarkation points before undertaking their journey. This shows the degree of desperation when women must take the chance, setting out on a life-threatening journey at sea in the final weeks of their pregnancy.

Survivors from ships that have capsized when sailing between Indonesia and Australia tell of newborn babies they have seen floating in the water, right next to their drowned mothers. Medical experts say that a woman can go into labour as a response to a stressful event, such as a boat capsizing or trying to swim to shore. The Nigerian women whom I interviewed tell of women who give birth prematurely on the way through the Sahara. The babies tell their own story of the conditions for women who set out to see or through the desert, fleeing violence and poverty, in desperate search of a better life. This is why we need the full story of Aylan Kurdi’s mother.

          By 2100, Refugees Would Be the Most Populous Country on Earth   
Poverty and deadly wars are the major drivers of displacement.

The UN Refugee Agency has announced the new figures for the world’s displaced: 65.9 million. That means that 65.9 million human beings live as refugees, asylum seekers or as internally displaced people. If the refugees formed a country, it would be the 21st largest state in the world, just after Thailand (68.2 million) and just ahead of the United Kingdom (65.5 million). But unlike these other states, refugees have few political rights and no real representation in the institutions of the world.

The head of the UN Refugee Agency, Filippo Grandi, recently said that most of the displacement comes as a result of war. "The world seems to have become unable to make peace," Grandi said. "So you see old conflicts that continue to linger, and new conflicts erupting, and both produce displacement. Forced displacement is a symbol of wars that never end."

Few continents are immune from the harsh reality of war. But the epicenter of war and displacement is along the axis of the Western-driven global war on terror and resource wars. The line of displacement runs from Afghanistan to South Sudan with Syria in between. Eyes are on Syria, where the war remains hot and the tensions over escalation intensify daily. But there is as deadly a civil war in South Sudan, driven in large part by a ferocious desire to control the country’s oil. Last year, 340,000 people fled South Sudan for refugee camps in neighboring Uganda. This is a larger displacement than from Syria.

Poverty is a major driver of displacement. It is what moves hundreds of thousands of people to try and cross the Sahara Desert and then the Mediterranean Sea for European pastures. But most who try this journey meet a deadly fate. Both the Sahara and the Mediterranean are dangerous. This week, the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Niger rescued 600 migrants from the Sahara, although 52 did not survive.

A 22-year-old woman from Nigeria was among those rescued. She was on a pick-up truck with 50 people. They left Agadez for Libya. ‘We were in the desert for ten days,’ she says. "After five days, the driver abandoned us. He left us with all of our belongings, saying he was going to pick us up in a couple of hours. But he never did." Forty-four of the migrants died. The six who remained struggled to safety. ‘We had to drink our own pee to survive,’ she said.

Getting to Libya is hard enough. But being in Libya is perilous. Violence against vulnerable migrants inside Libya continues to occur. The IOM reports the presence in Libya of ‘slave markets.’ Migrants who make it across the Sahara into Libya have told investigators that they find themselves in these slave markets where they are bought to be taken to private prisons and put to work or else sold back to their families if they can raise the high ransom payments. UNICEF reports incidents of rape and violence against women and children in these private prisons. One 15-year-old boy said of his time in a private prison, "Here they treat us like chickens. They beat us, they do not give us good water and good food. They harass us. So many people are dying here, dying from disease, freezing to death."

Danger lurks on the sea as well. This year already IOM reports least 2,108 deaths in the sea between Libya and Italy. This is the fourth year in a row that IOM has counted over 2,000 deaths by mid-year. Over the past five years, this averages out to about 10 deaths a day. Libya, broken by NATO’s war in 2011, remains a gateway for the vulnerable from various parts of Africa, countries damaged by IMF policies and by warfare. There is no expectation that the numbers of those on the march will decrease.

In a recent paper in The Lancet (June 2017), Paul Spiegel, formerly of the UN Refugee Agency suggests that the "humanitarian system was not designed to address the types of conflicts that are happening at present." With over 65 million people displaced, the various institutions of the UN and of the NGO world are simply not capable of managing the crisis.

"It is not simply overstretched," Spiegel wrote of the humanitarian system, "it is no longer fit for purpose."

These are shattering words. One problem Spiegel identifies is the assumption that refugee flows are temporary, since wars will end at some point. What happens when wars and occupations are permanent? People either have to live for generations in refugee camps or they will seek, through dangerous passages, flight to the West. He gives the example of Iran, which absorbed over a million Afghan refugees without using the camp strategy. They simply allowed the Afghans into Iranian society and absorbed them by putting money into their various social schemes (such as education and health). Spiegel also points out that refugees must be part of the designing the process for humanitarian aid. These are good suggestions, but they are not going to be possible with the limited funds available for refugees and with the crisis level of activity that detains the humanitarian agencies.

Spiegel does not deal with one of the great problems for humanitarianism: the persistence of war and the theory that more war—or the current euphemism, security—is the answer to humanitarian crises. This January, over 1,000 people tried to scale the large barrier that divides Morocco from the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. Looking at that barrier, one is reminded of the idea that walls will somehow prevent migration, a view driven by President Donald Trump. Violence met the migrants, a mirror of the violence that was visited among migrants along the spinal cord of Eastern Europe last year. Walls, police forces and military interventions are all seductive to an imagination that forgets why people migrate and that they are human beings on the run with few other options. There is a view that security barriers and security forces will raise the price of migrant and deter future migrants. This is a silly illusion. Migration is dangerous already. That has not stopped anyone. More humane thinking is necessary.

It is important therefore that the UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed told a meeting on the Sahel on June 28 that the world leaders need to "avoid a disproportionate emphasis on security" when dealing with the multiple crises in the Sahara region and north of it. "No purely military solution" can work against transnational organized crime, violent extremism and terrorism, nor against poverty and hopelessness. Underlying causes are not being addressed, and indeed the surface reactions—to bomb more—only create more problems, not less.

In the July issue of Land Use Policy, professors Charles Geisler and Ben Currens estimate that by 2100 there will be 2 billion refugees as a result of climate change. These numbers are staggering. They are an inevitable future. By then, refugees will be the largest country on earth—nomads, seeking shelter from destruction of climate and capitalism, from rising seas and wars of greed.

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started.
