Today’s comic by Ruben Bolling is The true, top-secret story of Trump's presidency:

Cartoon by Ruben Bolling -  The true, top-secret story of Trump's presidency

Republican-led House Armed Services Committee asks Pentagon to study climate change: That might seem like no big deal since the Pentagon has been looking into the effects of climate change on military readiness and other security issues for nearly a decade. But it matters because a year ago the same body tried to block the military from spending a dime preparing for climate change:

"The truth is that the department can study this on their own, as they have a wide berth when it comes to assessing threats to national security," said Rep. Jim Langevin, a Democrat from Rhode Island and the amendment's sponsor. "But this amendment shows that Congress has the department's back. It signals that we are not naive to the dangers of climate change to our defense strategy."

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has a little meltdown in the White House:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s frustrations with the White House have been building for months. Last Friday, they exploded.

The normally laconic Texan unloaded on Johnny DeStefano, the head of the presidential personnel office, for torpedoing proposed nominees to senior State Department posts and for questioning his judgment.

111 people used California’s new right-to-die law to take their own lives in 2016: The law went into effect in June 2016. It allows state residents with terminal illnesses to ask their doctors for medication to end their lives on their own timetable. By the end of the year, 258 people had initiated the process, 191 were prescribed the medication, but just 111 patients "were reported by their physician to have died following ingestion of aid-in-dying drugs prescribed under EOLA." Reporting lags and natural deaths occurring before the medication was taken were cited as the reasons for the difference in those numbers. Median age 73. Most were cancer patients and most were enrolled in hospice/palliative care.

EPA looking into how to undo the Clean Water Rule enacted by Obama in 2015: The rule is meant to protect the water supply of 117 million Americans, but it raised hackles on the right, and Republicans have made several unsuccessful attempts to kill it. Also known as the Waters of the United States or WOTUS), the rule set limits on pollution in the nation’s tens of millions of acres of wetlands and thousands of streams that feed the nation's rivers. While even the regime itself admits that Pr*sident Trump cannot rescind the rule, his executive order directing the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers begins a years-long process of eventually repealing it. 

Deep submersible research submarine: Boaty McBoatface
Boaty McBoatface

Boaty McBoatface is back in the news: You may recall that the Natural Environment Research Council in the United Kingdom asked the public to name a polar research ship. But when the inspired “Boaty McBoatface” was far and away the most popular of the 7,000 names submitted, the stiffnecks at the council said no. They did, however, give a nod to democracy by giving that name to a little yellow robotic submarine. The submersible, designed for deep dives, has just returned from exploring the Southern Ocean near Antarctica to a depth of 13,000 feet with a boatload of “unprecedented data.” Professor Alberto Naveira Garabato from the University of Southampton, the lead scientist of expedition aboard the research vessel RRS James Clark Ross, said in the statement: "Up until now we have only been able to take measurements from a fixed point, but now, we are able to obtain a much more detailed picture of what is happening in this very important underwater landscape. The challenge for us now is to analyze it all." 

Every single minute around the world, nearly one million plastic bottles are sold.

Big majority of Americans feel “alarmed” or “uneasy”:

A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll finds that 42% of of those surveyed when asked how they felt when they think about how things are going in Washington today said there were “alarmed.” Another 33% feel “uneasy.” Just 11% choose the positive “excited.”

“The air of angst is bipartisan. Nine of 10 Democrats feel uneasy or alarmed; so do a majority of Republicans.”

          Traieste fara regrete!   

Mereu avem de ales in viata, si mereu ne vom intreba care este decizia corecta, sau daca am ales bine. De multe ori aceste dileme duc la un tip de stres care ne macina si chiar ne poate distruge viata: regretul. Acest lucru nu face decat sa ne tina pe loc si sa ne impiedice sa progresam, asa ca daca ne dorim ceva mai mult de la viata este cazul sa scapam de regrete si sa facem in asa fel incat viata noastra sa aiba un scop.
Totusi cum poti scapa de regrete, astfel incat la batranete sa te poti bucura de amintiri? Iata mai jos cateva metode pe care le-ai putea aplica pentru a avea parte de o viata linistita:
  •  Du o viata proactiva: Trebuie sa cosntientizezi ca ai o singura viata si este bine sa profiti de fiecare zi ca si participant si nu ca observator. Fa un legamant cu tine pentru a-ti urma visele si a lupta pentru ele.
  • Inconjoara-te de oameni proactivi. Daca vrei sa nu te adancesti si mai mult in acea stare de depresie, este indicat sa te inconjori de oameni care isi traiesc viata fara regrete. In mod sigur vei invata multe de la ei.
  • Calatoreste! Viziteaza, invata si cunoaste oameni noi, te va ajuta sa te intelegi mai bine si sa fii mai fericita. Gaseste hotel la mare in Bulgaria sau la munte si te imbarci rapid intr-o noua aventura interesanta.
  • Pastreaza un jurnal. In jurnal te poate ajuta foarte mult sa elimini lucrurile negative si sa le accentuezi pe cele pozitive. De multe ori, acest lucru te ajuta sa vezi lucrurile mai clar si viitorul mai luminos.
  • Incearca lucruri noi. Fa o lista cu lucruri pe care ti-ar placea sa le faci, si incearca sa le duci la bun sfarsit. Pana la urma a trai fara regrete inseamna a face tot ceea ce iti doresti sa faci!

Now in its fifth year, the Wilson Center Guitar Festival is the only guitar festival in the world to feature four different genres of Classical, Fingerstyle, Jazz, and Rock & Blues. In addition to the semi-final and final competition rounds in all genres, the 2017 Festival will include master classes led by some of today's best guitarists, a vendor hall filled with the latest and greatest in guitar gear, live music from local artists, an exhibit of rare guitars from The Eisner Collection, and ticketed headliner concerts, which this year will feature renowned classical ensemble Beijing Guitar Duo (Aug. 17); fingerstyle legends Antoine Dufour, Gareth Pearson, and Mike Dawes (Aug. 18); and modern-day jazz prophet and former band leader of The Tonight Show Kevin Eubanks (Aug. 19).

"The three-day festival is an incredible stepping stone for our competitors," said Guitar Festival Manager Don Sipe.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

U.S. says it appears Syria planning another chemical weapons attack-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-June 26, 2017

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday it appears the Syrian government is preparing for another chemical weapons attack and it warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad he and his military would "pay a heavy price" if it conducts such an attack.The White House statement said preparations by Syria were similar to those undertaken before an April 4 chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians and prompted President Donald Trump to order a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.Trump ordered the strike on the Shayrat airfield in Syria in April in reaction to what Washington said was a poison gas attack by Assad's government that killed at least 70 people in rebel-held territory.

WASHINGTON — The White House says it has found "potential" evidence that Syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack.Press Secretary Sean Spicer issued an ominous statement Monday evening that says the U.S. "has identified potential preparations" for another chemical attack by the Assad government that it says "would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children."He says the activities are similar to those made before an April chemical attack. The Trump administration launched missile strikes in retaliation for that attack, which it blamed on Assad.Spicer warns that "if Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price."The White House has provided no immediate evidence to back up its claims.The Associated Press.

Focus-China's 16+1 foray into Central and Eastern Europe By Eric Maurice-euobserver

Prague, 26. Jun, 13:27-Half a decade after it was launched, the network of cooperation between China and 16 Central and Eastern European countries has brought uneven economical and political fruits so far.The so-called 16+1 was established in 2012 as Beijing's initiative to cover various issues such as investment, trade, but also culture or education.The group includes 11 EU countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia; and five non-EU countries from the Balkans: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.It fits into China's global strategy to engage new partners in political and economic ties in different formats.Despite having a permanent secretariat, the Cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European Countries - the initiative's official name - is more a series of bilateral relationships with no overall coherence, as experts pointed out in discussions at the Prague European Summit conference earlier this month."It's not really a multilateral format," Petr Kratochvil, the director of Prague's Institute of International Relations, told EUobserver."It's more a group of countries that China took to have bilateral ties with. It's mainly Poland and Hungary in terms of investment, and Romania and Serbia for building projects."China's interest in the 16+1 countries is different from one country to another.In the Czech Republic, Kratochvil noted, the Chinese have mainly invested in real estate, a football club - Slavia Prague, which just won the Czech championship - or the media."It's not really the kind of investment the country wants, because it doesn't produce anything," he said.In Budapest, meanwhile, the government announced last week that Hungary and China would soon start to cooperate in the healthcare industry – from making medical equipment to developing biotechnologies.Kratochvil noted that the amount of Chinese investments in the region had remained limited and was concentrated on a few high profile infrastructure projects, such as the Budapest-Belgrade high-speed railway that Chinese companies plan to build.The focus on infrastructure shows that China considers Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) a full part of the One Belt-One Road initiative – an investment and infrastructure plan, spanning from China to the Middle-East and Africa through to Central Asia."Southern and Eastern Europe are a testing ground for the Belt and Road," Anastas Vangeli, from the Polish Academy of Sciences, told EUobserver.He said that 16+1 was more an "experiment" than a "Chinese plan", and that Beijing tries "to see whether this type of diplomacy can help them boost economic relations.""To put it very simply, the whole idea is to find ways to boost the economy outside China, to generate demand for Chinese goods," Vangeli said, adding: "And these are not cheap goods: high speed railways, satellites systems or nuclear technology."Agatha Kratz, from the European Council on Foreign Relations, a London-based think-tank, told EUobserver that: "The first idea was to treat CEE as Asia and Africa.""That was a big shock, they explained that loans for projects that China would build were not going to happen."For Kratz, the success of the 16+1 initiative is to be found on the political side than in the economic side.She pointed out that annual summits between the 17 leaders, usually in Europe, constitute a "formal channel of communication".-A pragmatic question-After five years, the 16+1 format "has shown its limits, but it will continue," Kratz added.For China, the forum is "high-level enough and it helps to understand how best to promote what it can do in Europe".For CEE countries, the summits are "one more bilateral forum, one more way to have meetings with China and explain what they [CEE countries] need from it."For countries that are either part of the EU or willing to join it in the future, the Chinese partnership is "a pragmatic question", Kratochvil insisted.Although some leaders, such as Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban or Czech president Milos Zeman, are supportive of certain Chinese positions – for instance Beijing's territorial claims in the South China Sea – the region is not going to become a Chinese "ally"."The idea of a strategic shift is nonsense," Kratochvil said.

Myanmar, Thailand incinerate illicit drugs worth $800 million-[Reuters]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

BANGKOK/YANGON (Reuters) - Officials in Myanmar and Thailand burned illegal narcotics worth more than $800 million on Monday to mark the UN day against drug abuse and trafficking.The move came even as authorities struggle to stem the flood of illicit drugs in the region, with Thailand's justice minister last year saying the country's war on drugs was failing.In Thailand's Ayutthaya province, more than 9 tonnes of drugs with a street value of over 20 billion baht ($590 million) went up in smoke including methamphetamines, known locally as "yaba" or "crazy drug", according to police."Currently, we are able to take down a lot of networks, including ... transnational networks bringing drugs into Thailand ... to be shipped to Malaysia and other countries," Sirinya Sitthichai, Secretary-General of the Office of Narcotics Control Board, told reporters in Ayutthaya.In neighboring Myanmar, the police said they destroyed confiscated drugs worth around $217 million.Myanmar remains one of the world's largest producers of illicit drugs, including opium, heroin and methamphetamines. Those narcotics are often smuggled into China.Last year, law makers in Myanmar voiced disappointment over the country's lackluster efforts to tackle the drug problem.The market for methamphetamines has been growing in Southeast Asia, the United Nations has said. It estimates that Southeast Asia's trade in heroin and methamphetamine was worth $31 billion in 2013.(Reporting by Juarawee Kittisilpa in AYUTTHAYA and Aye Win Myint in YANGON; Writing by Amy Sawitta Lefevre; Editing by Joseph Radford)

Pot insider says dispensaries are 'dreaming' if they think they'll be part of legalization framework-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Omar Khan sat down with Matt Galloway on Metro Morning to discuss big questions that have yet to be answered in the federal government's push to develop a legal framework for recreational marijuana sales by July 2018.Khan is former chief of staff to the Ontario health minister and he now works with the marijuana industry as vice president, public affairs of Hill + Knowlton strategies.Questions and answers have been condensed.Matt Galloway: How prepared is this country for legal weed? Omar Khan: I think right now you have a patchwork of readiness. You have provinces like Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick who are fairly well advanced in terms of their thinking. And you have others, like Manitoba and Saskatchewan, who quite frankly are a little bit further behind.MG: What are the big questions that still have to be answered? OK: I think one of the points that's getting less attention is where will one be able to use marijuana. For example, you can walk down a public sidewalk and smoke a cigarette, but you can't walk down the sidewalk and drink a beer. I think that's a conversation that needs to happen.MG: Do you think that people will be allowed to smoke marijuana in parks, if they can't have an open bottle of alcohol there now? OK: There's a lot of evidence that suggests that harm associated with marijuana use is less than that associated with regular alcohol use. So I think it's something that the province of Ontario especially is going to be looking at as they move forward with their strategy.MG: What about the sale issue? OK: Since the government has set a fairly aggressive timeline for legalization — some have said, July 2018 — I think it's going to be very difficult for the government to have an up-and-running, bricks-and-mortar retail operation by this time next year essentially. I think the government is looking at three options: one would be a wholly government-run crown corporation a la LCBO; I think another option would be a heavily regulated system that gives out private licences for retailing; and then, the third option would be what we call a hybrid. Some private licences combined with a government-run system, similar to how beer and wine is distributed in Ontario.MG: Which way do you think they are leaning?OK: I know the Ontario government started looking at this seriously, right after the election of the Trudeau government. I know the attorney general, Yassir Naqvi, is working away feverishly to put together some options for cabinet to consider. I also know the premier is very big on consultation, so I suspect that before any plan is rolled out, there will be a robust public consultation.MG: Can you have robust public consultation and still set up that regulatory body in time? OK: I know they've been working at this hard for a year or so. The timeline's going to be a challenge no doubt. That's why I suspect that if there are going to be public consultations, as I presume there will be, they'll be rolling them out fairly shortly.MG: Is the timeline too tight? OK: It is what it is. Having worked in government, I know that sometimes you have to set a deadline to get everybody working away at achieving a goal. At the end of the day, what's important is that we are going to have legalized adult use of recreational cannabis in this country. And, industry, government, all involved stakeholders need to start working very fast to get this done right.MG: You work with the industry now. What do they want to know? OK: Like members of the public, they are waiting for more information about what the retail distribution model will look like. But I think industry is very interested in sharing some of their expertise when it comes to distribution. There are a lot of players who have a lot of experience dealing with controlled substances. So for example, pharmacies, care centres. I want to give kudos to Mayor Tory who spoke out vigorously against the illegal dispensaries that are out there right now. The one question everyone needs to ask is, where are these people getting their supply? We have 50 licensed producers or marijuana in this country right now.MG: So where are they getting their supply? OK: I don't want to open myself up to defamation. But they're not getting them from the licensed producers because none of them would risk their licence by providing supply illegally.MG: The assumption from many of the illegal dispensaries is that they're going to be part of the new regime.OK: I think they are dreaming in technicolour. There is no way the province of Ontario or any other province is going to give a retail distribution licence to any entity that's involved in criminal activity.MG: Do you really think we'll meet this deadline? OK: The good thing [Finance Minister] Morneau has put out there is that if there's a province that isn't ready with an up-and-running distribution system next year, there will be a fallback, and I suspect that will be online sales.

Spain sends reinforcements as fire spreads near wildlife reserve-Agence France-Presse-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Madrid (AFP) - Firefighters were battling Monday to contain a blaze threatening a renowned national park in southern Spain which has already led to the evacuation of some 2,000 people.Authorities were sending additional firefighters to tackle the flames at the Donana Natural Park in southwestern Spain near Huelva, a fire service spokesman told AFP."The flames are not under control, they are spreading," he added, though no injuries have been reported.The blaze comes a week after wildfires killed over 60 people in neighbouring Portugal.Strong winds and scorching heat were complicating efforts to fight the blaze, which broke out Saturday near the town of Moguer, officials said.The fire has not yet hit the neighbouring Donana National Park, which has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994 and is well known for the extensive biodiversity of its dunes, wetlands and woods."The flames have not reached the national park," the official in charge of the environment with the regional government of Andalusia, Jose Fiscal Lopez, told Spanish public television."A special effort was made during the night on the front which threatened the park the most," he added.The national park is one of Spain's most important wildlife sanctuaries and a popular tourist attraction.It is home to a variety of animals, including endangered species such as the Spanish imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx, a large cat found only in Spain and Portugal.Officials temporarily evacuated a lynx breeding centre on Sunday as a precaution.A female Iberian lynx died at the Acebuche captive breeding centre on Saturday "due to stress" during its capture for evacuation, the centre said in a statement.The other lynxes are "safe and sound", said the mayor of Moguer, Gustavo Cuellar. "Each lynx held in captivity is receiving detailed care."Over 200 firefighters backed by 15 vehicles and seven planes were battling the blaze on Monday morning, emergency services said.The cause remained unknown but Fiscal Lopez said officials were "certain" human activity played a role."It remains to be seen if this was with (criminal) intent or due to negligence," he added.The fire prompted the closure of several roads and the evacuation of some 2,000 people, including guests at camp sites and several hotels.There were no immediate details on how much land had been burned so far.

Opinion-New initiative could trump the Visegrad Group By Wojciech Przybylski-euobserver

Warsaw, 26. Jun, 17:09-"New Europe" was a term coined by the administration of former US president George W. Bush.When the USA decided to invade Iraq, this term was used to differentiate between – and celebrate – the solidarity of new Nato members compared to the reluctance of the old allies.Since then, the intricacies of European politics – from smaller initiatives to larger regional alliances and even to the inner-workings of the EU itself – have grown considerably.Many wishing to weaken Europe’s position and potential on the global stage try to exploit this division of old vs new, and it is something all leaders on the continent should be wary of.With that still in mind, on 6 July US president Donald Trump will arrive in Warsaw and take part in an assembly of one of these regional alliances, the Three Seas Initiative (TSI) – a meeting of the EU leaders representing Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).The three seas is a reference to the countries situated between the Adriatic, Baltic and Black Seas.The initiative is seen as a major diplomatic triumph of the Polish president, Andrzej Duda, who is also the leader of the TSI and desperate for a win.However, the TSI is just one of many political groupings in the CEE region with a primary focus on influencing EU policy. Other such groupings of more or less importance are the Visegrad Group (V4), Slavkov triangle, Danube Region, Weimar Triangle and Nordic-Baltic cooperation.While their main focus is on fostering cooperation within the EU, such formations are becoming increasingly interesting for external powers such as China (in the so-called 16+1 format) and now the US.Trump’s visit will definitely put a spotlight on the TSI and help this format to continue.TSI members – Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia – pledged in their founding declaration a year ago to foster regional projects in the areas of energy, transportation, digital communication and economic sectors in CEE.However, according to analysts who are advancing the concept, like Bartosz Wisniewski, the head of research office at the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM), the region still has a long way to go when it comes to its economic development.The TSI is meant to complement connectivity between the East and West of Europe, with greater connectivity along the north-south axis, thanks in no small part to the EU's financial contribution.-Not quite quid pro quo-The US has already increased on their military presence in the region, even more so than had been originally promised by the administration of former US president Barack Obama.The LNG (liquid natural gas) terminal in Swinoujscie, Poland – a strategically important facility allowing for more energy independence in the region – has only recently celebrated the arrival of its first transportation from the US and awaits its next shipment from Qatar, and other countries.Justifiably suspicious of their eastern neighbour, Poland will most likely take the opportunity to sup-port the recent sanctions that were proposed by the US Senate last week on contractors for the Nord Stream 2 (NS2) project, as well as other significant Russian businesses.In comparison, both Trump and Hungarian PM Viktor Orban have sought to lift the sanctions on Russia, a sentiment that is also shared today by Austria, a member of the TSI, whose companies are contractors for the NS2.However, according to PISM these differences are fine, as they are neither an attempt to undermine European integration, nor a block to ward off Russia.To the Czechs and Slovaks, the TSI, especially now, might be a little more problematic.While they agree with the goal of north-south connectivity, they are cautious – if not suspicious – of the political dimension.V4 is the most important format to Slovakia, whereas the country treats the TSI more like a one time event.For Slovaks, there is no political content in this grouping. And, beyond that, there is no security component and no political dimension for the country.Czech officials have also expressed reservations towards Poland, a country that, along with Hungary, emphasises the East-West divide. The radicalisation of some V4 members also does not help.Poles automatically reject all ideas from the Western members, a Czech diplomat recently told Gazeta Wyborcza.A member of the Czech ministry of foreign affairs, who was quoted in the same article, went even further, claiming that the idea of a Three Seas Initiative is unacceptable because of its 20th century neo-imperial origin.Such criticism is dismissed by PISM analysts, who underline that despite any apparent differences, Slovakia and Czech Republic will send their representation.Despite many reservations, the obvious champion of the initiative has become the Croatian president, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. Allegedly, her personal involvement was of key importance to the US delegation.The TSI clearly goes along with her plans for her LNG terminal in Croatia that will improve gas sup-ply diversification – independent of Russia – and increase energy cooperation in the region.-Needing a pat on the back-It might be too simplistic, but there is the chance that Trump is using the occasion as a slight against German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron.Is this a not-too-subtle comment about how Trump sees future European cooperation? The question needing to be answered by EU leaders will be whether they think Trump is willing to cut off his nose to spite his face.That worries some, who do not believe that the Polish ministry of foreign affairs can handle a diplomatically sensitive visit.Warsaw, already isolated in the EU, may want to be even more confrontational after Trump's visit. This will also not help to reconcile with Brussels, Berlin or Paris.Furthermore, it will not help to build regional solidarity, since the northern and southern neighbours of Poland will not feel like taking part in fist-fights that would complicate relations with their Western partners.No matter how well-intentioned these leaders are in developing ties between their nations, they will all struggling with domestic and regional issues, as well as questionable popular support.It all makes the meeting feel more like the international conference of future political pariahs.Wojciech Przybylski is the editor-in-chief of Visegrad Insight, and chairman of the Res Publica Foundation in Warsaw. His new book ‘Understanding Central Europe’, co-edited with Marcin Moskalewicz, will be published by Routledge in the second half of 2017.

UK visitors set to pay into EU budget after Brexit By Nikolaj Nielsen-june 27,17-euobserver

BRUSSELS, Today, 22:25-British nationals may end up paying into the EU general budget after the UK leaves the European Union.An EU proposal to tighten border security controls for all visa-free travellers sometime in 2020 will be generating cash by demanding fees from holidaymakers. The fees will pay for annual running costs.But an European Commission official on Monday (26 June) said any surplus revenue would also then go to the EU budget and reduce member state contributions.Proposed last November, the Commission's European Travel Information and Authorisation System (Etias), will screen all visa-free travellers before they enter the passport-free Schengen zone of 26 European states."Any accumulated surplus generated by the Etias revenues would in any case revert back to the EU general budget and hence reduce member state contributions," the Commission official told MEPs.A five-year application under the scheme is €5. The fee is small but the UK's total sum in the pot is not insignificant.Brits made 35 million holiday trips to the EU last year alone with around a third going to Spain, followed by France and Greece. Another 5.5 million were business trips.A spokesperson from the UK-based Association of British Travel Agents (Abta) told EUobserver that the UK holiday figures to the EU have increased substantially in the past few years.He noted that 2016 was "an all time record".Abta wants the British government to negotiate an exemption for UK nationals in Etias, noting that "it is in everyone's interest to keep these flows going."The UK government, meanwhile, says it is determined to get the best possible deal for the country.A UK government spokesperson said Etias was just "one of many areas that may need to be addressed as we leave the EU and agree a new partnership."It is also likely to stir up resentment among people who campaigned to leave the EU, given that British nationals may still be footing, albeit indirectly, the EU budget after Brexit.Commission estimates suggest Etias will cost over €200 million to launch and around €85 million to maintain annually. Discussions between the EU institutions have yet to start but the plan is to reach an agreement before the end this year.German Green MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht said the EU would be better off making it easier for people to travel than imposing a new system that not only creates more red tape but also blanket collects personal data."Making it easier for people from countries, which are also democracies, to travel to the European Union and back is a positive thing and we need not to make that more difficult but easier," he said on Monday.EU nationals, for their part, took 10 million holiday trips and some 7 million business trips to the UK in 2016.

The federal government has launched a new centre tasked with preventing the radicalization of Canadian young people.A special adviser will be named in the coming months to oversee the local outreach and research projects funded through the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence.The centre will have dedicated staff, but will be located within the existing Public Safety Canada space.Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada must become a world leader in understanding and dealing with radicalization that leads to violence, in order to retain its national character as an open, diverse society that is also safe and secure."The new Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence will help us do as much as humanly possible to prevent radicalization to violence before tragedy strikes," Goodale said in a statement. "It will support and empower local leaders to develop initiatives that are suited to their community."Last year's budget set aside $35 million over five years and $10 million each year after to combat radicalization and violence in Canada.Ontario Liberal MP Arif Virani, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of heritage (multiculturalism), said the new centre will drive better research, understanding and engagement, with a special focus on youth vulnerable to radicalization. Building up trust relationships and opening lines of communication are critical to combating radicalism at the ground level, he said.-No boundaries to extremist views-The centre will not focus on Islamist extremism alone, but will cover a wide spectrum, because while some attacks are perpetrated by Islamist extremists, others target Muslims, Virani said."When we look at what's happening across the country, radicalization is not endemic to any one group, institution, race or religion," he said. "It doesn't have particular boundaries that are tied to a religion or an ideology. That's very important to keep in mind because that's a situation we need be upfront about in terms of where the threats are coming from and not focusing on any one particular community."In January, six people were killed and 19 others injured in an attack by a gunman at a Quebec CIty mosque.-Domestic acts of terror-Last August, Aaron Driver died in an altercation with police in Strathroy, Ont. RCMP believe he was preparing to carry out a suicide bombing in a public place.That incident came less than two years after Michael Zehaf-Bibeau shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo while he stood on guard at the National War Memorial, an act the RCMP called terrorism, before making his way to Parliament Hill.Jeremy Littlewood, a terrorism expert at Ottawa's Carleton University, said Canada's domestic terrorism problem is smaller than some of our closest allies, but that doesn't mean there is no danger.Littlewood said it's too early to tell if Canada's approach will work to combat domestic terrorism, but he said it is wise not to target only one group of extremists."Making it one type of terrorism specific, for example, al-Qaeda or ISIS-inspired terrorism, is a recipe for creating fear, suspicion and perpetuating the notion of suspect communities within a population," he said.Littlewood said success will depend partly on sustained funding, and an openness about what is working and what is not.The government is accepting proposals for the Community Resilience Fund as of July 6, 2017, which has $1.4 million available to fund projects in 2018-19. For subsequent years, there will be $7 million for continuing and new projects.Ten projects have already received funding for counter-radicalization work.

Crowd flows, camera coverage being studied to bolster Parliament Hill security-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

OTTAWA — Security officials say they're ready for the throngs set to descend on Parliament Hill for Canada's 150th birthday celebration Saturday.But that doesn't mean federal researchers are done thinking about how to better protect the country's seat of democracy in the months and years ahead.Advisers are gathering data on everything from crowd flows to video-camera placement to ensure both security and openness in the parliamentary precinct.Parliament Hill security is a "tough nut to crack" because of the fine balance between guarding the most important democratic institutions while keeping the grounds open to people, said Rami Youssef of the federal Centre for Security Science, a wing of Defence Research and Development Canada.After a gunman stormed the Hill in October 2014, dying in a hail of bullets in the Hall of Honour, the centre completed two studies. One looked at the physical security of Parliament's Centre Block, while the other delved into procedures for handling visitors and employees in the parliamentary precinct.The most tangible result of the armed assault was creation of the unified Parliamentary Protective Service, drawing together forces from the RCMP, House of Commons and Senate.The centre's researchers need more information before making the next set of recommendations to decision-makers, Youssef said in an interview."The reality is there's a lot of data to be collected, and a lot of data to be studied and analyzed," he said. "We have to go little by little, because they cannot make any drastic changes just overnight."Researchers are interested in the varied nature of the crowds that turn up on Parliament Hill, as well as the ebb and flow of pedestrian traffic at different times of day.Plans were revealed four years ago to boost video-camera coverage of the Hill substantially to guard against possible attacks by detecting abandoned packages, suspicious activity and disturbances.Researchers are studying different types of cameras, their placement and the percentage of visual coverage on the Hill, Youssef said.Work has been focused to date on trying to prevent attacks in the parliamentary precinct but, time permitting, the centre might explore other types of threats and hazards, such as an earthquake or other natural disaster, he added.Many parts of the Hill are undergoing extensive renovations. That could be a welcome opportunity to embed security changes into revamped buildings, Youssef said.The new Parliamentary Protective Service is working with the centre researchers on projects throughout the precinct, but disclosing details of the efforts "would expose operational tactics and measures" that could affect safety, said Melissa Rusk, a spokeswoman for the protective service.Federal officials are also reviewing the mandate of the Government Operations Centre, the focal point for monitoring major national events and emergencies. In addition, they are seeking a new home for the Ottawa-based centre.During the 2014 shooting, the centre lacked computer technicians, food was limited and senior emergency officials weren't in the building, according to internal documents released two years ago. — Follow @JimBronskill on Twitter-Jim Bronskill , The Canadian Press.

3,000 N.L. Muslims gather for Eid celebrations at Jack Byrne Arena-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Muslims in the St. John's area joined with others around the world in celebrating Eid Sunday — the festival that marks the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan.The celebration at Jack Byrne Arena Sunday morning began with prayers and then a meet and greet with tea, coffee, and snacks."After prayer, we had refreshments, and after refreshments they put out some bouncy castles for kids to play on," Reem Abu-Hendi said.The local celebration is huge — about 3,000 Muslims packed the Jack Byrne Arena early Sunday morning."The community at first, was not that large so like the mosque used to accommodate us but now it's really big like 3,000 people in one place, it's amazing," she said."Just to see all the Muslims in one place, it's a great feeling." Abu-Hendi said.Ramadan is a sacred time for Muslims, who believe that it was when the Qur'an — the holy book — was revealed through the prophet Muhammad."It's 30 days but this year it happened to be 29 because of the moon,"  Ayamen Shaawen said.The month, which started this year May 26, includes dawn-to-dusk fasting, and ends with a religious holiday called Eid."We fast from 3 a.m. until 9 p.m. so it's 18 hours a day," Abu-Hendi said.The fasting can be challenging, but that's what makes it worthwhile, she said."Your body just gets adjusted to it, and I would say it's thirst more than hunger, so you can usually go about your daily activities but around 6 p.m.-7 p.m., I'm done," she said.Without food all day, you'd think there might be a lot of cranky people walking around who are "hangry," but Abu-Hendi says it's all about willpower."Ramadan teaches you patience and self-control. If we lose to anger we could break our fast," she said."It's more of a self-discipline thing," Shaawen said.Volunteers who set up the event get up at the crack of dawn to prepare the arena for the 3,000 attendees."It's a big challenge for those who volunteer to organize it. Before we had a smaller community and our mosque was able to accommodate the size of our community but not anymore," said organizer Ayse Sule."It's a team effort," said Moein Shahwan, vice-resident of the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador."It brings lots of richness to our community and we are proud of it," Sule said.

Relatives of serial killer's victims speak of pain, guilt and anger-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

WOODSTOCK, Ont. — One after another, family and friends of a serial killer's victims described overwhelming guilt, anger and profound sadness when they learned their loved ones had been murdered by an Ontario nurse who was supposed to care for them.And many spoke about their loss of faith in the province's long-term care system, where Elizabeth Wettlaufer was allowed to cast her "shadow of death" over vulnerable seniors for nearly a decade.Wettlaufer was sentenced Monday in a Woodstock, Ont., court to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 25 years after she pleaded guilty last month to eight counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault.The 50-year-old nurse used insulin trying — and in most cases succeeding  — to kill vulnerable victims in her care at three Ontario long-term care facilities and a private home. Her crimes began in 2007 and didn't stop until she confessed to the killings at a psychiatric hospital in Toronto last fall.Sandy Millard, whose 87-year-old mother, Gladys Jean Millard, was murdered by Wettlaufer in 2011 at Caressant Care in Woodstock, told court about the depression she has fallen into."Finding out she was killed by a huge injection of medication she did not need broke my heart," she said.Her daughter, and Millard's granddaughter, Shannon Emmerton, spoke through tears."I don't know if I will ever truly recover," she said.Patricia Matheson glared at Wettlaufer as she read a statement by her husband, whose mother, Helen Matheson, was killed by the nurse in 2011."I lost my mother for the second time. No funeral this time, just shock, followed by the question why," Jon Matheson wrote. "I placed my mother in a facility I researched never once considering she would be a victim of such a despicable act. I ask why, because she didn't eat all the blueberry pie and ice cream?"The question of why Wettlaufer killed or hurt 14 people loomed large in court. In a lengthy video statement she gave to police last fall, she said she felt a "red surging" well up in her chest that was relieved after she completed a kill. She believed she was an instrument of God at times, but also killed because some residents were too much work, too burdensome.Many others, wracked by guilt, spoke of what-ifs."I simply feel guilty for not being able to protect my father as he had protected me," wrote David Silcox, whose father, James Silcox, was murdered in 2007.Justice Bruce Thomas acknowledged that guilt was the common theme of the 28 victim impact statements filed in court a few weeks ago."It is a complete betrayal of trust when a caregiver does not prolong life, but terminates it," he said. "But you cannot blame yourselves."Thomas described Wettlaufer's "free run" on her nine-year killing spree, with no oversight or even an inkling she had committed such calculated murders."Without her confessions, I am convinced these offences would never have been brought to justice," he said, calling Wettlaufer a "shadow of death that passed over them (the victims) on the night shift where she supervised."Debora Rivers said her grandmother, Mary Zarawinski, hated the nursing home when she first went there. There are a lot of old people here, she told her niece, even though Zarawinski was one of the oldest residents in the facility."She made it nice for everybody there," Rivers said outside court.She also noted that Wettlaufer had described Zarawinski as "'fun and feisty' — and she was.""The woman lived to be 96 years old for God's sake," Rivers said. "We have no way of knowing how long her life might have been," she said. "We were pretty sure she was going to make it to 100 and so was she."For her part, Wettlaufer apologized, crouching in the prisoner's box without looking at anyone."I am truly sorry for the people I injured or murdered," she said in a soft voice."Sorry is much too small a word. I hope that the families can find some peace and healing."Beverly Bertram, who is Wettlaufer's sole living victim, wrote about the physical pain she was in after the nurse injected her with insulin with the intent to kill her."It is really hard to describe, but I knew I was dying," she wrote in her statement. "I was doubled over in pain in my stomach...Just such pain. My whole body hurt...I thought I was screaming, but I was just moaning I guess."Bertram wrote that she has become a recluse since the incident, afraid of everyone, including her own shadow, and has lost all relationships with her family."I truly think sometimes I'd be better off if she did her deed."Shortly after Wettlaufer's sentencing hearing, the province announced it would hold a public inquiry into the murders to ensure a similar tragedy does not happen again.Liam Casey , The Canadian Press.

Demand for Canada 150 flags, brings seamstress out of retirement-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Canada Day is just under a week away and thanks to the demand for flags leading up to the big celebration, one New Brunswick woman has had to put her retirement on hold.Theresa King's basement is full of bright materials and the tools to turn them into something special. Since March, most of King's projects have been paused while she helps her former employer.- Cyclists pedal into New Brunswick for Canada 150 journey - Fredericton's Canada 150 funding largely focused on 'Indigenous reconciliation' "I thought I was going to be retired," King said with a laugh from her seat in front of a sewing machine.After 28 years working for The Flag Store in Thornton, Ont., she moved to Tower Hill, near St. Andrews. King was only given two years before her old boss came calling."The demand for Canadian flags for the 150 has been so dramatic that they have been out of flags forever," King said.So she agreed to help, thinking at first it would only be for a couple of weeks. Her estimate turned out to be off. Way off.Getting into the flag business-"By the time I'm finished, it will be about 2,500, three-foot-by-six-foot Canadian flags that I will have finished."Working from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., King can put together about 250 flags a week, which despite their complexity, she will tell you is fast.In order to save on the shipping costs, King drove her first shipment of 1,400 flags to Ontario in May.There has been some time for King to enjoy some side projects, like altering a graduation dress, but she said she's happy to help her former colleagues.In her years working for The Flag Store, she said March always meant the beginning of the busy season. But Canada 150 she said, has created demand the store isn't normally accustomed to."Those girls are pretty tired too," King said. "They're just swamped and there just isn't enough time in the day."It isn't just King who is hard at work in the workshop, she enlisted her husband, Doug, to help out too.He'll be the first to tell you that he never planned on getting into the flag business. But after stencilling off bright red maple leafs from cloth, Doug King said the work keeps him out of trouble.While her time is occupied by piecing together red and white material, King will have a little variety in her life this week.-100 and counting-A text from her boss saw rolls of green, gold, and black arrive at her door with a request from the Jamaican consulate."I have 100 to make" she said, "So I can ship them on Wednesday."After being so busy, you would think King planned on taking Canada Day off to enjoy seeing some flags fly. Instead, she said she's only going to take a break to go to the market before getting back to work.With a goal of getting another 1,000 Canadian flags finished by September, she said her next delivery will be her vacation."That'll be my holiday" King said, "A few days off to drive to Ontario and deliver all the flags."

Canadians will soon have a law on how to dispose of mercury-filled light bulbs-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

Canadians will soon have guidance from the federal government on how to dispose of mercury-containing light bulbs in an environmentally responsible way.Bill C-238, a new act that sets out rules for a national light bulb disposal strategy, received royal assent on Thursday.The National Strategy for Safe and Environmentally Sound Disposal of Lamps Containing Mercury Act commits the government to identify ways to dispose of mercury-containing light bulbs safely and establish guidelines for facilities that dispose of them, and then promote the program to Canadians.The bill also requires the environment minister to table the national strategy in Parliament within two years of the act receiving royal assent. -No regulations-Dartmouth-Cole Harbour MP Darren Fisher, who introduced the private member's bill, said there were no federal regulations outlining how to dispose of light bulbs."You can take your mercury-bearing light bulb, and you can throw it in your garbage bag and put it to the curb," he said.One regular, 13-watt residential compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) — the curly looking ones that are slowly replacing the traditional, round incandescent bulbs — contains on average 3.5 milligrams of mercury. Energy Star-certified CFLs contain 2.5 milligrams or less. Fluorescent tubes contain up to 12 milligrams.Fisher said about 1,150 kilograms of mercury end up in Canadian landfills each year, and can contaminate the environment.Mercury is also listed as a toxic substance under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act."So this is an incredibly big issue," he said.Compact fluorescents on the rise-A 2014 federal ban on most residential incandescent bulbs means more Canadians are using compact fluorescent bulbs. A 2014 report from Statistics Canada noted that in 2011, three-quarters of households across the country used at least one CFL bulb.About half the households that used CFLs reported throwing them in the garbage, and Haligonians were the most likely to toss them, with 84 per cent doing so, the report said.-'Piecemeal' approach-Recycling facilities in some municipalities and provinces break CFL bulbs down and recycle about 98 per cent of the components, including the mercury. Some retailers also collect used bulbs to send to recyclers.But Fisher described that as a "piecemeal" approach.He encourages Canadians to recycle their bulbs or simply hold on to them until the new law is developed."If the worst thing you have to do is put them in a cardboard box and leave them in your garage until the strategy comes forward, please do so, because what we'd like to see is no mercury-bearing light bulbs going into our landfills across Canada," said Fisher.

Nine dead after Colombia tourist boat sinks in reservoir-[Reuters]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

BOGOTA (Reuters) - Nine people died and 28 are missing after a multi-decked tourist boat carrying about 170 passengers sank in Colombia's Penol-Guatape reservoir on Sunday during the long holiday weekend, a government official said.Officials did not disclose the cause of the accident and provided few details.Videos posted on social media showed motorboats coming to the aid of passengers on the upper decks as the boat rocked from side to side. Ninety-nine people were rescued, Margarita Moncada, the head of disaster relief for Antioquia province, told journalists."At the moment we have nine people found dead. Another 99 people were rescued immediately and 40 more got out on their own," she said.Survivors on local television reports said they heard a loud noise before the boat began to sink and that not all of them had life jackets. Rescue operations were ongoing.Rescue workers and the air force were helping passengers at the scene, President Juan Manuel Santos said in a Twitter post.The large reservoir, about an hour from the central city of Medellin, is a popular tourist destination.(Reporting by Luis Jaime Acosta and Julia Symmes Cobb; Editing by Richard Chang)

          Europe not fully bike-friendly yet   
Many Europeans have bikes in their garages, but only 8% use them as means of transport. The practice is drastically uneven across the EU. One in three Dutch cycles daily to their workplace while the idea of bike commuting still raises eyebrows in countries like Cyprus, Malta and Portugal, according to Eurobarometer. The lack of a reliable bike-friendly infrastructure, safety concerns and an unpredictable weather are usually named as the main deterrents of cycling. Meanwhile, Copenhagen and Amsterdam are competing with each other to become the most bike-friendly capital in the EU. Now, a number of infrastructure upgrades and technological innovations are enabling bicycles to gear up. Cycling in Ruse, Bulgaria can be treacherous London is building the so-called cycle superhighways -two axes, East-West and North-South- to give bike commuters safer, faster, and more direct trips into the city. The Netherlands plans to build 675 new kilometres of fast cycle routes around the country's cities by 2025. German cities are also planning to develop new fast cycle lanes while offering the bike hire system, Call-a-bike, which allows borrowing and returning from smartphones. A leisurely bike ride in one of the EU's most bike-friendly countries Protected lanes and convenient bikes help people feel safe; which increases up cycle use. All across Europe, the electric bicycle market is growing at a pace of almost 20%. While on the other hand, sales of traditional bikes remain stagnant, according to the Confederation of the European Bicycle Industries (CONEBI). For some, there is an opportunity to boost cycling as a cost-efficient mode of transport. Battling steep hills and impatient drivers in Italy The European Cyclists' Federation (ECF), together with public authorities, academia, NGOs and business associations, has drafted the EU Cycling Strategy, including some policy recommendations to increase the number of cyclists. By 2030, the main goals are to increase the share of cycling in the transport modal split from 8% to 12% and to halve the rate of casualties. They also urge the EU to double the investment in cycle projects to 3 billion Euros during the 2021-2027 period and to double it again to 6 billion Euros during the 2028 - 2034 period. "Cycling should get its fair share and become an equal mode of transport. Not because we are nice people using bikes, but because investing in cycling delivers a better return on investment. It delivers a better performance for the EU objectives in terms of growth, job creation, and CO2 reduction", says 'Ad'am Bodor, ECF's advocacy director and former cycling commissioner of Hungary. Ease of congestion and less pollution for cities and better health for citizens are usually also cited as benefits of cycling. The ECF has asked the Commission to include the strategy in their 2018 Work Programme. However, the Commission is not planning to launch a proposal on cycling yet. Next year, it might propose new measures on multimodality, including cycling, but this is not decided at the moment. Bike ride in Nantes, France One of the current challenges to the development of cycling is fiscal policy. Countries with a high share of bike commuting usually provide some sort of financial incentive. In Austria, for example, there is a national subsidy programme for electric bikes, cargo bikes, and bike trailers for some public and private bodies; but not for people. "We don't want cycling to receive an extra fiscal benefit, but we need to have an equal playing field between cars and bikes", says Bodor. Another future challenge is the coming of automated cars. "Will they be able to cope with cyclists?", wonders Bodor. "The EU must make sure that cyclists are integrated into their system". High-tech bikes, vintage bikes, cargo bikes, e-bikes, pedalecs... Shops showing a broad diversity of bikes are probably the most relevant sign of the emergence of cycling as a means of transport. Young people are embracing bikes to assert their identity the same way that previous generations of youngsters took pride in their cars. "Cycling is becoming fashionable", says Bodor with a smile.

          Women with Beards   
My recent article on Conchita Wurst (and all of the discussion she has provoked) got me thinking in a more general way about women with beards. In fact there are many variations on this notion, which I hope to explore briefly below, and round up with a discussion at the end.

The History Books

La Mujer Barbuda
There are two bearded women which I am aware of from the history books. First, the semi-legendary Saint Wilgefortis, dating from the 14th century. I've actually written about Wilgefortis before in this blog. According to Wikipedia, no precise details of Wilgefortis' life can be verified. The legend is that, as a beautiful teenager, she was promised in marriage to a cruel nobleman. She prayed to God to deliver her from this fate, and promptly sprouted a beard. This angered her father and he had her crucified, and her traditional depiction is a crucified woman, with a beard (often with one shoe missing).

A more pragmatic (and to me, plausible) explanation is that some statues of the crucified Jesus were created, wearing a robe instead of the expected loincloth, and the legend of a crucified, bearded woman was cooked up to explain this away.

The next figure from history has been immortalised by the artist Jusepe de Ribera, in his 1631 portrait entitled La Mujer Barbuda (The Bearded Woman). Take a look at the painting. To me, it looks exactly like a portrait of a man; there is nothing feminine at all about the face, including the male pattern of hair at the forehead.

My first impression of this portrait was that Ribera had deliberately painted a man, dressed in a gown and suckling an infant. Then I started to read more. It turns out that the story of the figure in the painting is well-known and corroborated. She actually was a bearded woman; the miserable-looking guy in the background is her husband. Her name was Magdalena Ventura from Abruzzi, and at the time of the portrait, she was 52 years old. She bore her husband three sons before growing a beard at the age of 37. Some aspects of her life are recorded in Latin on the stone tablet at the bottom right of the picture.

Annie Jones
Some aspects of the painting are allegorical: at 52, she would be too old to bear a child or breast-feed, but Ribera has included this aspect to deliberately underline the female sex of the subject of the portrait. Ribera also had a reputation for deliberately painting accurate but cruel depictions of people with disfigurements, such as The Club-Footed Boy. What this says to me is that Ribera's depiction was probably reasonably accurate. Did he go out of his way to enhance the apparent masculinity of the image? It's hard to say for sure; I think probably not. It's clear, however, that he didn't make any effort to flatter the subject.

The Circus Freak

The next, and most widely-known, archetype of the bearded woman is the Circus Freak.

Freak shows entered their heyday in the 19th and early 20th centuries, exhibiting malformed, and disfigured humans as objects of scorn, ridicule and sometimes loathing. Dwarves, giants, conjoined twins and other rare anomalies (such as Joseph Merrick, the "Elephant Man") were staples of this form of popular entertainment. In this environment, bearded women were right at home, as this example Annie Jones, shows. I can't imagine what those performers were forced to do, in order to prove that they were actually women (and not simply men in frocks), but I suspect it was degrading and unpleasant in the extreme.

Jennifer Miller
A debate continues to this day over the role of such shows. Some showmen, such as Tom Norman, argued that his shows allowed people who were unable to work normally to provide a living for themselves. (Indeed, some people continue to deliberately exhibit themselves in this manner even today, such as the performer Black Scorpion). Critics argued that the shows were cruel, exploitative and inhuman. Eventually, of course, they were banned, but I see their echoes today in documentaries about conjoined twins, or people with morbid obesity. I think the public appetite for gawping at unfortunate people has not, in general, gone away.

Modern Examples

This brings me on to some modern examples. The first one I came across was Jennifer Miller, whom I saw in a TV documentary. Miller's beard started to slowly grow in in her early twenties. According to this interview, she has had an ambivalent relationship with it ever since.
Miller: I embraced the idea of it right away, and then had on-and-off relationships with it over the years. I basically believed that it was a good idea to keep it, but that it wasn’t always easy. I felt stronger and weaker about wearing it depending on what was happening. If at some point I were just feeling more vulnerable in general, that would make it harder. If I was worried about getting a job, I might feel some doubt about my commitment to keeping it.

Mariam with Harnam Kaur
Miller has worked as a circus performer, but also a writer and a university lecturer.

And then, more recently, a woman identified only as Mariam was interviewed on British television. Born in Germany, Mariam's beard started to grow after the birth of her son, 28 years ago. According to this article, she used to pluck out each hair every day with tweezers, but eventually decided to let it grow out.

Mariam keeps a blog of her own. She is quite open about how difficult it is to live as a woman with a beard. She writes:
Mariam: I remember, that when I was a child, I always wanted to be a boy. Boys had more freedom than girls. Could be more wild and climb on trees and do all these handycraft things that I liked.

In our family it was better to be a male, because then everybody believed in the success and intelligence of this person.

Meanwhile I appreciate myself as a woman and I see what I can do as a woman, and that I am not better or worse than a man. And I must say I am not all the time aware about being a woman. I feel like a being. And I would say some of my abilities you can name male others female. I do not like this labeling with male and female. I would wish we could just be ourselves and not to be fixed on any gender or sex.
Alex Drummond
Mariam describes unpleasant incidents in public places, such as people taking pictures or video of her on their phones, without permission. As a result, she (naturally) avoids very public places.

Genderqueer

Until now, I have considered only genetic women with beards. But I can't help finding an overlap with genderqueer: an expression of gender which is neither male nor female, but both, neither, or any variation you like. Is a woman who deliberately sports a beard genderqueer? Maybe, I guess.

Conchita Wurst has, without perhaps being genderqueer herself, driven that aesthetic into the public eye. But what about people who live that life all the time, and will continue to do so once Conchita's star has faded?

Photographer Alex Drummond is one such person.
Drummond: Being transgender gives me a unique perspective on my work. Born as ‘male’ but having always identified as female I nowadays embrace genderqueer as a way of living authentically as a trans-female.

Some people will live in a full time presentation of their preferred gender, others will live part-time. And a whole new movement is emerging of people who are living between genders, embracing the potentials of gender-queer and gender-fluidity.
Azis
Part of Drummond's website is given over to a blog, but as you could expect from a photographer, it's quite image-heavy. I wonder to myself whether Drummond experiences the same public reaction as Mariam? And is it a problem?

Some people seem to just like the deliberate androgyny, the deliberate mixture of male and female, that you get by combining an essentially feminine aesthetic, with an undeniable statement of masculinity: a beard. One example seems to be Bulgarian singer Azis, pictured here. Azis is apparently another Eurovision alumnus, having co-performed Bulgaria's entry in the 2006 competition, which finished a resounding 17th.

And I guess finally there is farce, the deliberate use of the beard with female costume as an instrument of amusement or comedy. As I have frequently mentioned on this blog, I don't think crossdressing as a vehicle for comedy is funny. Likewise, I find deliberate farce to do with crossdressing to be, at best, in poor taste, and at worst, hurtful.
Richard Branson: seriously?

Nonetheless, it's hard to get too steamed up by Richard Branson's performance. After losing a bet with Air Asia chief executive Tony Fernandez, Branson had himself made over as a Virgin stewardess, complete with uniform, high heels and fishnet stockings, and served drinks on a 6-hour flight from Australia to Kuala Lumpur. I can't say that he looks especially gorgeous, but I admire his courage and his sense of humour in agreeing to honour the bet (and no-one could accuse him of somehow not fulfilling his end of the bargain).

What do I think about all this?

My first thought, on seeing photographs of Jennifer Miller, Mariam and Harnam Kaur, is that they look very strange. Without doubt, the juxtaposition of a beard-- that most masculine characteristic-- on a woman, causes a slight jolt of surprise, which makes you look again. For whatever reasons: hormonal, or genetic or just plain bad luck, it is clear that women can also grow beards.

I am certain that the women who keep the beard represent the tip of the iceberg. (On Mariam's blog, some of the commentators admire her courage, while admitting that they rid themselves of their own heavy facial hair). I think therefore there are probably many hundreds of women out there who deal with the facial hair with wax, or electrolysis, or laborious plucking. I can completely understand this: the societal pressure must be huge.

That makes me think that for those women who embrace their beards, there must be something different that makes them willing to resist that societal pressure. Unlike Annie Jones a century or more ago, women in the 21st century have a choice about whether to have a beard. Having it permanently removed would be reasonably expensive, and reasonably uncomfortable, but certainly doable.

For bearded women, it must come to be their defining characteristic. It reminds me of the old joke about the two men in the pub overlooking the little village in Scotland. One laments to the other that, despite his lifetime of contribution to the life of the village, they still haven't honoured him with a decent nickname. "Do they call me Hamish the boat builder? Or Hamish the roofer? No! But you shag one sheep...!"

The same is true of bearded women. Do we know these women for their other accomplishments or qualities? No. The reason they are here for me to write about is their outlandishness. Is that what they like? The notoriety? Does that make up for the whispers and the stares and the rude picture-taking? Is that why they keep their beards?

And yet, Mariam speaks on her blog of simply wanting to live as herself. Isn't that exactly what I want? What other trans people want? Doesn't it bother us when people focus on why we cross-dress? Isn't it enough that we say that the why doesn't matter?

What Alex Drummond and other genderqueer people do is (from my perspective) a also bit weird-looking and a bit inexplicable. And yet, is what I do not a bit weird-looking and a bit inexplicable from someone else's perspective? How can I plead for sympathy and acceptance while not granting it (automatically!) to someone else?

Comments welcome, whether you are bearded or unbearded. If you are interested in women with big muscles, why not read my article about Female Bodybuilding? You might also be interested in the related, but different topics, Men in Skirts, and Men with Long Nails.

Addendum 17th July 2014

If you're going to Saaaan Francisco...
A local news website has reported that men with flowers in their beards are "the latest hipster trend".

Apparently "spreading like wildfire" across image-sharing websites, the website gives 10 examples, captioned with more than a hint of mockery.

Though it doesn't especially do it for me, I don't really see what the fuss is about.

Meanwhile, I have been discovering that one of the reasons Harnam Kaur (above) does not remove her beard is that her particular religion, Sikhism, mandates complete acceptance of the body in the way it was born, and forbids the cutting of hair for both men and women. I think that helps to explain her motivation. For some people, that must be a pretty tough commandment to live up to, and I salute Harnam Kaur for her adherence to it.

Some things should not happen, but they do. Good news about unemployment should be oxygen for the federal government. Unemployment is down around 5.5%. That should mean that the government will have good returns from income tax and production. There are lots of good things the federal government is doing, but the oxygen thief that is Malcolm Turnbull and his crony mates of Julie Bishop and Christopher Pyne are robbing the government of oxygen. Mr Abbott can help and does. Take an example of a few words Mr Abbott said at a recent IPA event 

"We have an abundance of energy - but the world's highest power prices; an abundance of land - and property prices to rival Hong Kong's; some of the world's smartest people - yet with school rankings behind Kazakhstan.

We need to make Australia work again - because our country, plainly, is not working as it should. We are letting ourselves down. We are not what we should be; and we know it."


Mr Abbott generously gave his time to talk to IPA members, and not just speak his thoughts and run. And Mr Abbott gives oxygen which the government needs. 

In 350, Roman usurper Nepotianus, of the Constantinian dynasty, was defeated and killed in Rome by troops of the usurper Magnentius. Neither reigned long as Constantius II dealt with Magnentius three years later. 763, the Byzantine army of emperor Constantine V defeated the Bulgarian forces in the Battle of Anchialus.1520, Spanish conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés fought their way out of Tenochtitlan. 1559, King Henry II of France was mortally wounded in a jousting match against Gabriel de Montgomery. 1688, the Immortal Seven issue the Invitation to William (continuing the English rebellion from Rome), which would culminate in the Glorious Revolution

In 1934, the Night of the Long KnivesAdolf Hitler's violent purge of his political rivals in Germany, took place. 1936, Emperor Haile Selassie of Abyssinia appealed for aid to the League of Nations against Italy's invasion of his country. 1937, the world's first emergency telephone number999, was introduced in London. 1963, Ciaculli massacre: a car bomb, intended for Mafia boss Salvatore Greco, killed seven police officers and military personnel near Palermo

In 1971, the crew of the Soviet Soyuz 11 spacecraft were killed when their air supply escaped through a faulty valve. It is difficult to overstate the tragedy. The mission to dock with a space station and stay there for weeks was successful. They kept fit on a treadmill twice a day. But on re entry, a pressure valve no one could access was left open in space. They died in seconds on re entry. 

I am very good and don't deserve the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

















Here is a video I made Up Hill

Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 -- 29 December 1894) was an English poet who wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children's poems. She is best known for her long poem Goblin Market, her love poem Remember, and for the words of the Christmas carol In the Bleak Midwinter.

Does the road wind up-hill all the way? 
   Yes, to the very end. 
Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? 
   From morn to night, my friend. 

But is there for the night a resting-place? 
   A roof for when the slow dark hours begin. 
May not the darkness hide it from my face? 
   You cannot miss that inn. 

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night? 
   Those who have gone before. 
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight? 
   They will not keep you standing at that door. 

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak? 
   Of labour you shall find the sum. 
Will there be beds for me and all who seek? 
   Yea, beds for all who come.

 It is possible that the ALP will win the election on Saturday and that should scare people. Because the DelCon movement have advocated splitting the senate vote and sending a message to those remaining idiots who installed Turnbull over Abbott, the senate is likely to be ALP friendly too. Turnbull's foolish decision to go for a double dissolution means that all of Abbott's gains get wiped out. So as a service to the community, The Conservative Voice will list reasons to not vote for the ALP or their proxies who call themselves independents. 
  • The AWU corruption scandal which brought on the double dissolution. Shorten is heavily involved in his time as union leader. Also Fair Work has been set up badly and is not an effective guard. To give the ALP the reigns of power again is to give in to another term of ineffective workplace relations. That will damage Australia badly, crippling her businesses who employ people.
  • Bad for the economy, promising to spend over $120 billion dollars on two policies alone, neither of which are effective. But then promising to balance the budget too. And yet admitting to lying outrageously about Medicare because they feel that is clever politics. 
  • Border Security. ALP have killed people with expensive bad policy.
  • Too close to extremist Muslims, too distant from people who are good.
  • Hostile to church interests, but not a friend to gays either. 
  • NSW Corruption with ICAC still not taking on the majority of corrupt ALP members from their 16 years in power. 
  • Victorian corruption, with jobs for the union mates and the destruction of CFA volunteer firefighters. ALP have killed people with incompetence in recent years. 
  • Queensland corruption and South Australian too, all related to entrenched ALP that are supported by independents. 
For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

Greece will default on her repayments today. The left wing Greek Government has promised her people that they can default and stay in the European Union. As if people can work but not be paid, so long as they aren't Greek. And that is wrong. The cost of the lie of the Greek government is a nervous world market which devalues because the stakes are so high. Europe should boot Greece. The campaign against austerity is dangerous and should not be accepted. There will be market pain if Greece leaves the union, but it is nothing to the pain if others feel that austerity can be rejected with impunity.  

Joe Hockey's defamation win is only a slap on the wrist for the partisan media who would willingly cut their own throats to secure a win against conservatives. There was no need for the personal attack of the defamatory headline, but it was made for no other purpose but to attack the treasurer. And if the Fairfax press had any credibility they would pay the money and issue an apology. Instead they are un-penitent and are examining the possibility of appealing. One hopes they appeal and lose badly.
From 2014
The 1876 election had seen the election of GOP Hayes based on a compromise. The military was pulled out of the South, ending reconstruction efforts and toppling state GOP governments. White Democrats would make the south one party and would isolate and prey upon African Americans. But in terms of populism, that was ok. Then James was elected and what followed was to James' credit in 1881, and a tragedy too. James was a GOP man too, but he had better control and discipline than Hayes. James Garfield would reform the US public service and purge corruption from the post office. He appointed african americans to prominent federal positions, promoted civil rights and education as a means to a free and fair electorate. And then, two hundred days into office, he was assassinated by a nut job. 

The nut job was like any other extreme right wing idiot that ever lived. Born in illinois, to an ethnically French family of Huguenot, Guiteau had been given $1000 and instructed to study in New York by his father. He had listening issues, and struggled as a student. He dropped out and joined a religious cult, but struggled to find his place. He went to Boston and got an easily achieved legal license, but was a failure as a barrister, managing to enrage most of his clients. Next, Guiteau turned to theology and stole material from the cult from which he had been booted. Then he decided to support GOP people. He begged Hayes for political favours, and then Garfield. Garfield had opposed corruption. So Guiteau decided to shoot him. 

Guiteau chose a pearl handled revolver for reasons of posterity. He picked his moment, approached Garfield from behind and shot him twice. Garfield would probably have survived but for the medical treatment he received by doctors that had not sterilised their surgery equipment or hands, as would be routine ten years later. It took eleven weeks for Garfield to die. In defence, Guiteau would claim that he was not guilty because "The doctors killed him, I just shot him." The defence failed, and so on this day in 1882, nine months after the shooting, Guiteau was hung. On the morning of his hanging, Guiteau wrote a poem. 

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy, I am so glad,

I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy.

I love the Lordy with all my soul,

Glory hallelujah!

And that is the reason I am going to the Lord,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lord.


I saved my party and my land,



Glory hallelujah!

But they have murdered me for it,

And that is the reason I am going to the Lordy,

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am going to the Lordy!

I wonder what I will do when I get to the Lordy,

I guess that I will weep no more

When I get to the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah!

I wonder what I will see when I get to the Lordy,

I expect to see most glorious things,

Beyond all earthly conception

When I am with the Lordy!

Glory hallelujah! Glory hallelujah!

I am with the Lord.

He was the only right wing extremist to assassinate a President of the US. He seemed incapable of rational thought, his application of poetry on a par with another right wing terrorist (McVey) who claimed he was the captain of his soul. Guiteau's case was one of the first attempts at an insanity defence in the US for a high profile case. At nine months he was the longest survivor of an assassination of a US President.

I am publishing a book called Bread of Life: January. 

Bread of Life is a daily bible quote with a layman's understanding of the meaning. I give one quote for each day, and also a series of personal stories illustrating key concepts eg Who is God? What is a miracle? Why is there tragedy?

January is the first of the anticipated year-long work of thirteen books. One for each month and the whole year. It costs to publish. It (Kindle version) should retail at about $2US online, but the paperback version would cost more, according to production cost.

          Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag   

Amy Johnsons 114-års fødselsdag

Date: 1. juli 2017

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

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

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

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

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

          elanmorintedronai on "Bookshelf-flash ebook type of thing"   

Hello, my wordpress.com blog is called Libraria Futura. A thing I just think would make better place is if wordpress is more writer-friendly. I mean I write since a little kid and since I can't be advertiser or create trademarks I just want to present my knowledge and art in the best way. I am Bulgarian and I write predominantly in my native language. The trick is that I write mostly fantasy fiction and short stories, some game-books quite a lot of poetry and maxims. I really love my work, but it is getting out of proportions. I am writing much, I am 26 and I am in my most productive years in my life. I want to compile it something like flash-books on a bookshelf. The theme is entirely by mine ideas an strengths and I am pulling the best shots on the field. I want to make it the best way. Is it possible to include such quirks and widgets in the next version, more writer, author-friendly. I don't try to sell my art, I present it to give happiness, joy and hope in people. I just want to give it the best way. So what will include WordPress tool - I don't know. I'd love to see something, because there are many guys who post their art and want to do it in the best way. I just want to know if there is more that can be got? Or I have to jump on own domain-spaceship-org and twirl the skies with my own class :P. I am kidding. I'd love to see such widgets be more wide-spread and friendly for people.

All the best.

          Pendidikan Ideologi   
Pendidikan Ideologi
Ignas Kleden  ;   Sosiolog
                                                         KOMPAS, 21 Juni 2017



                                                           
Pada 19 September 1951, presiden pertama RI, Ir Soekarno, menerima gelar doctor honoris causa dalam ilmu hukum dari Universitas Gadjah Mada, dengan promotor Prof Mr Drs Notonegoro.

Pidato Bung Karno, "Ilmu dan Amal", mencerminkan pandangannya tentang ilmu pengetahuan, ideologi, politik, dan pemimpin politik. Bung Karno mungkin sekali adalah kepala negara di dunia yang menerima gelar Dr HC terbanyak, total 26: 7 dari dalam negeri dan 19 dari luar negeri, seperti Amerika Serikat, Kanada, Uni Soviet, Jerman Barat, Yugoslavia, Cekoslowakia, Polandia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hongaria, Mesir, Turki, Kamboja, Korea Utara, Filipina, Brasil, dan Bolivia.

Sekalipun demikian banyak penghormatan dunia akademis terhadapnya, Bung Karno dalam pidato di depan senat guru besar UGM mengatakan terus terang, setiap kali menerima gelar kehormatan itu, dirinya selalu bertanya apakah ada alasan cukup untuk menerima kehormatan seperti itu. Dirinya pada dasarnya bukanlah seorang ilmuwan karena tak menelurkan teori ilmu pengetahuan yang diterima dalam komunitas ilmu pengetahuan, tak menulis karya ilmiah yang diperbincangkan para ilmuwan di dunia, sehingga sumbangannya secara langsung kepada ilmu pengetahuan, dalam pandangannya sendiri, hampir tidak ada.

Namun, ini tak mengecilkan hatinya karena, menurut Bung Karno, dirinya tak merasa diri seorang ilmuwan, dan bahkan tak suka menjadi ilmuwan. "Pembawaanku tidak puas dengan ilmu an sich. Bagi saya, ilmu pengetahuan hanyalah berharga penuh jika ia dipergunakan untuk mengabdi kepada praktik hidup manusia, atau praktik hidupnya bangsa, atau praktik hidupnya dunia kemanusiaan."

Karya ilmiah berpuncak pada ditelurkannya suatu teori ilmiah yang diterima dan didiskusikan para ilmuwan dalam komunitas mereka, sedangkan Bung Karno merasa dirinya pada tempat pertama adalah seorang pemimpin politik, tugas utamanya mengaktifkan rakyat dan masyarakatnya kepada suatu cita-cita yang hendak diperjuangkan melalui praktik hidup. Berulang kali dia mengutip ucapan dalam bahasa Belanda, "Kennis zonder daad is doelloos. Daad zonder kennis is richtingloos (Pengetahuan tanpa perbuatan adalah tanpa tujuan. Perbuatan tanpa pengetahuan adalah tanpa arah)".

Kalau praktik hidup dan perbuatan, bagi Bung Karno, hal terpenting, apakah gunanya pengetahuan dan ilmu pengetahuan, dan mengapa dia membaca dan mempelajari demikian banyak buku termasuk buku-buku ilmu pengetahuan? Jawaban telah diberikannya sendiri: pengetahuan dan ilmu pengetahuan dibutuhkan supaya memberi arah yang lebih jelas sehingga praktik hidup mempunyai tujuan yang dapat dipertanggungjawabkan.

Pada titik ini menjadi jelas, bagi dia penting sekali menyusun suatu teori tentang arah dan tujuan bagi praktik hidup yang dijalankan rakyat dan masyarakatnya. Teori itu dalam pandangannya tak lain dari Pancasila, yang menurut keyakinannya dapat dan harus menjadi pedoman bagi arah dan tujuan praktik hidup yang dijalankan masyarakat Indonesia sebagai negara merdeka. Pancasila adalah suatu teori tentang praktik negara dan berfungsi sebagai ideologi, tetapi sekaligus menjadi teori tentang praktik hidup masyarakat Indonesia, dan menjadi Weltanschauung, suatu visi tentang dunia yang menentukan orientasi masyarakat Indonesia terhadap dunia. Was ist Weltanschauung? Apa itu Weltanschauung? Itulah pertanyaan filosof Karl Jaspers dalam studinya yang luas dan komprehensif, Psychologie der Weltanschauungen.

Menurut Jaspers, visi tentang dunia atau Weltanschauung selalu bersifat filosofis karena dia menjadi pengetahuan tentang keseluruhan, tentang yang universal, yang merupakan watak pengetahuan filosofis. Bedanya dari sistem filsafat ialah Weltanschauung tidak hanya berupa pengetahuan tentang keseluruhan, tetapi bahwa pengetahuan itu membawa akibat yang menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa, menjadi seelische Wirklichkeit der Wirkung.

Tugas pemimpin politik

Tak begitu jelas apakah Bung Karno membaca karya Jaspers atau tidak, tetapi nyatanya dia juga menyatakan Pancasila adalah suatu philosophische grondslag, suatu dasar filsafat dan filsafat dasar bagi Indonesia, dan bahkan bagi negara lain di dunia yang mau menerapkannya. Namun, filsafat dasar itu tak akan hidup kecuali kalau dia dijalankan dan dihayati menjadi praktik hidup. Suatu ideologi negara, menurut Bung Karno, selalu punya dua fungsi utama: fungsi statis (mempersatukan semua unsur masyarakat ke dalam satu negara), dan fungsi dinamis (memberi arah ke mana negara dan masyarakat itu digerakkan). Peran pemimpin politik tak dapat diabaikan karena dia bertugas mengaktifkan masyarakatnya untuk menjalankan praktik hidup yang merealisasikan tujuan yang ditetapkan dalam suatu ideologi. Dalam tugas itu pemimpin politik harus melakukan tiga hal dalam tiga langkah.

Pertama, pemimpin politik harus sanggup melukiskan cita-cita negara dan masyarakatnya sebagai tujuan dan impian yang menarik, atraktif, dan appealing. Apakah ada politisi kita sekarang ini yang sanggup melukiskan kesejahteraan sosial bagi seluruh masyarakat sebagai gagasan atraktif bagi kehidupan bersama dan ide yang memikat bagi kaum muda? Apakah ada kemampuan politisi berbicara tentang kemanusiaan yang adil dan beradab sebagai cita-cita dan nilai yang layak dikejar dan diwujudkan dalam praktik hidup karena cita-cita itu punya daya tarik yang menimbulkan pesona dan memberi ilham yang menggairahkan? Apakah pembicaraan tentang kebangsaan masih menggelitik patriotisme, dengan rasa bangga dan rasa syukur, bahwa ada suatu tempat di alam semesta ini yang menjadi tanah air yang kita miliki, dan sekaligus memiliki diri kita sebagai rakyatnya-a homeland which belongs to us, and to which we all belong?

Pernahkah kita mendengar politisi kita berbicara musyawarah dan mufakat sebagai local genius Indonesia dalam memecahkan masalah dan mencapai konsensus rasional, sambil menimbulkan rasa hormat dan bermartabat kepada pihak yang beda pandangan? Di atas segalanya, apakah kita masih menyebut nama Tuhan dengan rasa tremendum et fascinans, dengan gentar dan terpukau karena kekudusan-Nya, dan apakah ingatan akan nama-Nya sanggup menahan kita dari nafsu berfoya-foya kekuasaan dan keserakahan?

Kedua, pemimpin politik tak cukup hanya menimbulkan rasa tertarik atau terpesona, tetapi harus sanggup memberikan sugesti kepada masyarakatnya sehingga anggota masyarakat itu merasa mampu mewujudkan cita-cita yang dilukiskan. Rasa mampu itu melahirkan keyakinan tentang tekad dan kesanggupan mencapai cita-cita, dan menjelmakan cita-cita menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa, menjadi seelische Wirklichkeit menurut Jaspers. Sugesti menjadi kuat kalau apa yang dikatakan sejauh mungkin diilustrasikan juga dalam perbuatan. Perasaan mampu akan diteguhkan apabila rasa itu mendapat pengejawantahannya dalam praktik hidup yang dapat dilihat dan dialami.

Di sini budaya politik jadi penting dan memainkan peran instrumental dalam pendidikan ideologi. Budaya politik dibentuk oleh elite politik. Apa yang dilakukan elite politik dalam praktik hidup-baik atau buruk-seakan menjadi fashion show bagi rakyat yang melihat dan cenderung mencontohinya. Trickle-down effect dalam budaya politik berlangsung jauh lebih cepat daripada trickle-down effect dalam pemerataan kemakmuran ekonomi. Perbedaannya, tiadanya tetesan ke bawah dalam pemerataan hasil pertumbuhan ekonomi tidak dengan sendirinya memperlemah pertumbuhan ekonomi. Sebaliknya, tiadanya tetesan ke bawah dalam praktik hidup elite politik hampir pasti memperlemah ideologi yang dicoba diaktualisasikan dalam masyarakat.

Suatu pendidikan ideologi dengan kurikulum yang tersusun rapi, dan dengan metodik dan didaktik yang paling modern pun, akan mudah digagalkan oleh tiadanya dukungan budaya politik dari elite politik melalui praktik hidup mereka.

Ketiga, pemimpin politik harus dapat memfasilitasi peralihan dari adanya rasa mampu ke pembentukan kemampuan yang riil. Dia mendorong peralihan dari kenyataan dalam jiwa menjadi kenyataan dalam praktik hidup. Ibaratnya, seorang pemimpin politik memikat pendengarnya melalui presentasi tentang sebuah destinasi wisata lewat panorama yang diperlihatkannya melalui film dokumenter. Dia sanggup menimbulkan ketertarikan serta keinginan dan lambat laun muncul rasa mampu dan tekad pada pendengarnya untuk mengunjungi destinasi dimaksud. Langkah yang menentukan adalah membuat pendengarnya mulai menghemat pengeluaran, membatasi belanja harian, mengumpulkan dana, mencari informasi sebanyak-banyaknya tentang destinasi itu, mempelajari alur perjalanan yang paling murah, mengontak teman-temannya untuk bepergian bersama, kemudian membeli tiket dan selanjutnya terbang atau naik kapal laut ke destinasi yang demikian diidamkan dengan membawa program liburan yang sudah tersusun. Pada saat itu kenyataan dalam jiwa menjelma jadi kenyataan dalam praktik hidup.

Kesetiaan yang tetap

Inilah tiga langkah bagi seorang pemimpin politik dalam mengaktifkan masyarakat dan menggerakkan anggota masyarakat itu ke arah cita-cita yang ada dalam ideologi, sebagaimana diuraikan panjang lebar oleh Bung Karno dalam kursus yang diberikannya kepada para kader Pancasila di Istana Negara pada 26 Mei 1958. Tiga langkah itu adalah gerak-maju dari atraksi ke sugesti dan selanjutnya ke aktualisasi. Kalau ada kesan dewasa ini bahwa Pancasila sebagai ideologi negara kita kian kurang diperhatikan, pertanyaannya: pada tahapan mana dan langkah ke berapa ada hambatan menghidupkan Pancasila sebagai ideologi? Apakah kurang ada usaha sosialisasi atraktif tentang Pancasila, apakah tak ada kemampuan politisi memberi sugesti tentang rasa mampu mewujudkan Pancasila sebagai praktik hidup? Ataukah terputus transisi dari rasa mampu ke pembentukan kemampuan riil untuk merealisasikan Pancasila sebagai pedoman praktik hidup dalam negara dan masyarakat Indonesia?

Pancasila digagaskan konseptornya sebagai Staatsphilosophie (filsafat negara) dan sekaligus Lebensphilosophie (filsafat hidup masyarakat sebagai warga sebuah negara). Sebagai filsafat negara, Pancasila akan hidup dalam kebijakan dan ketetapan yang dibuat negara, dan dalam berbagai tindakan yang dilakukan negara. Apakah tiap kebijakan dan ketetapan negara mempertimbangkan kelima prinsip dalam Pancasila sebagai pemberi arah bagi politik yang dijalankan negara? Memang ini tugas yang berat baik bagi eksekutif, legislatif, maupun badan pengadilan.

Setiap kali mereka harus menimbang apakah keputusan itu tidak menyalahi asas Ketuhanan Yang Maha Esa, berupa kepercayaan kepada Tuhan yang satu? Apakah suatu kebijakan masih menghormati atau sudah mengabaikan asas kemanusiaan yang adil dan beradab, yang percaya setiap orang pada dasarnya merindukan dan berhak atas keadilan dan punya bakat untuk peradaban yang baik, kalau dia dihormati secara layak dan dijunjung martabatnya sebagai manusia? Pepatah asing, under the skin we are all the same (di bawah kulit semua kita adalah sama). Apakah dengan merujuk sila kebangsaan, kedaulatan negara masih dijaga dan dipertahankan, dan rakyat berhak mendapatkan perlindungan dari negaranya?

Apakah kebijakan ekonomi masih menerapkan keharusan menciptakan kesejahteraan bagi seluruh rakyat dan bukannya membiarkan melebarnya kesenjangan amat mencolok antara kaya dan miskin, yang beruntung dan kurang beruntung? Apakah demokrasi kita hanya mengutamakan demokrasi politik dan kebebasan setiap individu, tetapi mengabaikan demokrasi ekonomi, sambil menutup mata terhadap kenyataan bahwa inequalities (ketidakmerataan) yang tidak diatasi secara waspada dapat membawa kita kepada injustice (ketidakadilan)?

Sebagai filsafat hidup, Pancasila menetapkan bahwa sebagai warga negara Indonesia, semua rakyat adalah sama, dengan satu pegangan, yaitu before the law we are all the same (di depan hukum negara kita semua adalah sama). Namun, dalam praktik, ini harus dicoba terus-menerus.

Perbedaan sebagai anggota kelompok agama atau kelompok budaya dapat diakomodasi karena ada kesamaan dasar sebagai warga negara Indonesia. Kesulitan yang muncul dari berbagai perbedaan dapat diatasi apabila asumsi tentang perbedaan itu bisa diubah, yaitu bahwa perbedaan bukanlah bahaya yang mengancam, tetapi kesempatan untuk menjadi semakin matang karena adanya proses belajar mengenai apa yang tidak kita kenal dalam kelompok kita sendiri dan memahami mengapa hal yang aneh dan trivial dalam perasaan kita, untuk pihak lain menjadi penting dan bahkan amat penting. Pengertian baru itu tak perlu mengubah pendirian dan keyakinan kita sendiri, tetapi dapat memperluas wawasan memperkaya pengalaman kita sebagai pribadi yang kian matang dan warga negara yang  dewasa, terbuka, dan demokratis, dengan rasa kemanusiaan yang semakin tinggi.

Pancasila dapat menjadi ideologi subur di antara rakyat Indonesia hanya kalau ada usaha terus-menerus dari negara maupun masyarakat untuk menerapkannya dalam praktik hidup seperti berulang kali  ditegaskan Bung Karno. Pancasila dapat menjadi pegangan kalau dia menjelma menjadi kenyataan dalam jiwa yang kemudian  diaktualisasikan  dalam tindak-perbuatan.

Presiden Jokowi memperkenalkan semboyan menarik untuk pemerintahannya, "kerja, kerja, kerja". Semboyan itu akan semakin hebat dan menggairahkan kalau kerja yang dilaksanakan tak menjadi sebarang praktik yang diharuskan oleh tugas, tetapi sekaligus menjadi praksis yang menerjemahkan cita-cita Pancasila sebagai praktik hidup dalam negara dan bangsa. Praksis itu patut dicoba dan dilaksanakan terus-menerus dengan berhasil atau kurang berhasil, tetapi dengan kesetiaan yang tetap. Pepatah Bung Karno: hanya dengan terus-menerus mengalir ke laut, sebuah sungai tetap setia kepada sumber airnya.

"I am thrilled with this honour for God's Own Country, especially when you consider the British films that have won before," said director Francis Lee upon learning that his film about a Romanian migrant worker had won the prestigious Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival today. The jury praised his "assured direction" and the "raw and endearing performances" that marked the film out.

The award for Best International Film went to Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov's black comedy Glory, about a railway worker whose honesty gets him in trouble whhen he finds a large sum of money blowing down the tracks and tries to do the right thing. "This award is a recognition not only for us, but also for Bulgarian cinema, which is currently on the rise again," said Valchanov, who described the award as a great honour.

Primo giorno della visita in Bulgaria del Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali
Cong. Chiese Orientali
Il Cardinale Leonardo Sandri, Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali, dopo la Santa Messa presso la Cappella della Rappresentanza Pontificia a Sofia, si è recato presso il Palazzo del Consiglio dei Ministri, accompagnato dal Nunzio Apostolico S.E. Mons. Anselmo Pecorari, dove sono stati ricevuti, in rappresentanza del Primo Ministro, dal Vice-Primo Ministro e incaricato della Sicurezza e della Difesa, Dr. Krasimir Karakachanov, con il quale si sono intrattenuti in un colloquio inteso a ringraziare per l'importante ruolo internazionale della Santa Sede, ed insieme dell'importanza del contributo che le religioni possono offrire alla pace e alla riconciliaizione tra i popoli e le nazioni. Nel colloquio si è parimenti auspicato che anche la Chiesa Cattolica possa presto ricevere il pieno riconoscimento da parte delle Autorità dello Stato.
Sua Eminenza si è poi spostato nella residenza patriarcale, ove è stato accolto da Sua Santità Neofit, Patriarca ortodosso di Bulgaria, con il quale c'è stata la possibilità di un lungo colloquio. Il Patriarca ha ricordato la visita di Sua Santità Giovanni Paolo II, durante la quale era egli incaricato dal Santo Sinodo di far parte del comitato di preparazione e accoglienza. E' stata espressa la grande riconoscenza della Chiesa Ortodossa di Bulgaria alla Chiesa Cattolica, per le possibilità offerte ai loro sacerdoti e fedeli in molte nazioni dell'Occidente, in modo da garantire l'assistenza spirituale a più di un milione di bulgari ortodossi fuoriusciti dal Paese in cerca di lavoro. Si sono ricordate in particolare le Chiese di San Paolo alla Regola, a Roma - ove l'apostolo fu tenuto prigioniero prima del martirio - quelle di Barcellona, Segovia, Berlino e molte altre. In questo modo i fedeli non solo possono ricevere il nutrimento spirituale dell'Eucarestia, ma avendo momenti di comunità possono preservare la loro fede messa a rischio dalle sfide sempre più imponenti della secolarizzazione. Il Cardinale Sandri ha espresso la propria condivisione, ricordando il fenomeno di massa dell'emigrazione cui sono sottoposti tanti cristiani del Medio Oriente seguiti dalla Congregazione, per i quali sempre si cerca di organizzare la necessaria assistenza pastorale secondo la tradizione ecclesiale loro propria. Il Prefetto ha confermato la piena disponibilità a collaborare in tutti i campi si rendessero necessari "siamo disposti a darvi il nostro stesso cuore", pur di continuare a intraprendere passi verso la piena unità visibile. Sono stati ricordati i tanti incontri del Santo Padre Francesco con i Patriarchi Ortodossi ed Ortodossi Orientali: Bartolomeo di Costantinopoli, Kirill di Mosca, Ilia di Georgia, Teodoro II di Alessandria, Youhanna X di Antiochia, Tawadros di Alessandria dei copti.. alla lista manca Neofit di Bulgaria, e si spera che possa giungere presto il giorno di questo abbraccio, con la venerazione profonda che il Papa di Roma conserva per i suoi fratelli patriarchi delle antiche e nuove sedi. Tutti questi incontri esprimono la certezza che se ancora facciamo fatica a riconoscerci parte di un'unica Chiesa, tuttavia non possiamo negare di essere già fratelli in Cristo. Il Patriarca ha ricordato la sua presenza alla consacrazione della concattedrale latina di San Giuseppe a Sofia, presieduta dal Cardinale Angelo Sodano. Grande sorpresa e commozione si è ripetuta poi al termine della giornata, quando Sua Santità si è recato al ricevimento organizzato dalla Nunziatura in occasione della tradizionale "Festa del Papa", intrattenendosi con il Cardinale Prefetto e col Nunzio in un altro grande ed intenso colloquio, molto cordiale e fraterno.
Riprendendo il racconto della mattinata, il Cardinale Prefetto si è trasferito nella sede del Grande Muftì di Bulgaria, Dr. Mustafa Hazdid, leader spirituale dei musulmani locali, che sono circa il 14% della popolazione bulgara. Egli ha ringraziato per l'importante visita, e ha sottolineato più volte come siano necessari incontri come quelli odierni, perchè intendono ribadire pubblicamente che le religioni concorrono al bene della società e alla costruzione di ponti di pace e riconciliazione, e non possono essere strumentalizzate per usare violenza, o indottrinare i giovani in visioni ideologiche che li spingano al terrorismo. Il Muftì ha ricordato il rapporto di stima e collaborazione con il Nunzio Apostolico, che in più di una occasione ha partecipato agli Iftar di fine Ramadan.
Il Prefetto ha ringraziato per le parole di accoglienza, ha spiegato le aree di competenza della Congregazione, con una particolare sottolineatura per la realtà del Medio Oriente, rendendo omaggio ai tanti martiri cristiani contemporanei vittime della violenza cieca e del terrorismo, ma anche le migliaia di civili musulmani pure vittime degli scontri, con tanti innocenti, donne e bambini, che pure soffrono. Sua Eminenza ha ricordato le analoghe visite vissute alle comunità musulmane in Siria, prima dello scoppio della Guerra, in Libano, in Iraq, in Kazakhstan, e Azerbajan, e riprendendo i contenuti emersi nel viaggio apostolico in Egitto di Papa Francesco ha evidenziato come i cristiani vogliano essere considerati come cittadini nativi dell'area del Medio Oriente, e come tali rispettati e accolti per costruire insieme il bene comune delle Nazioni ove abitano da secoli.
Sia il Muftì come il Cardinale Sandri hanno sottolineato l'importanza di una educazione autentica delle giovani generazioni, che offra loro le coordinate per interpretare il presente, e un profondo radicamento nei valori umani e religiosi che troppo spesso vengono banalizzati o cancellati per scelte ideologiche dai mezzi di comunicazione o dal pensiero comune da essi condizionato. La religione deve essere accolta come motore di sviluppo della società e non emarginata o fraintesa. Il Cardinale ha ricordato l'espressione "una società senza Dio e che ha paura di Dio è il suicidio dell'uomo", e lo si vede in tanti dibattiti contemporanei sulla vita, la famiglia, la sofferenza e il morire, anche purtroppo in questi giorni in Europa. Sia al Muftì come al Patriarca, tra le altre cose, il Cardinale ha fatto omaggio in anteprima del volume edito dalla Libreria Editrice Vaticana per celebrare i venticinque anni della ripresa delle relazioni diplomatiche tra la Santa Sede e la Bulgaria, caratterizzato dalla visita in Bulgaria nel 2016 del Cardinale Segretario di Stato, Pietro Parolin.
Per pranzo, il Prefetto si è recato presso la Sede dell'Esarcato per i fedeli bizantini, accolto da S.E. Mons. Proykov, Esarca e Presidente della Conferenza Episcopale Interrituale; dalla Macedonia è giunto il Vescovo ed Esarca S.E. Mons. Kiro Stojanov, e dopo una preghiera c'è stato il pranzo insieme ad alcuni sacerdoti, religiosi e laiche consacrate che lavorano a Sofia. Un gruppo più numeroso di loro, con i Padri Cappuccini, gli Assunzionisti, i Resurrezionisti, i Carmelitani, le Religiose di diversi Istituti - tra le quali le Suore della Carità fondate da Santa Teresa di Calcutta - è venuto nel pomeriggio nella Concattedrale Latina di San Giuseppe, ove il Cardinale Prefetto ha iniziato rivolgendo loro un discorso di saluto e incoraggiamento, e fermandosi a riflettere con loro entro un dialogo che ne è seguito, con particolare riferimento alle attività "in uscita" della Chiesa di Bulgaria, l'attenzione a preservare l'unità nella diversità delle espressioni rituali, e infine la grande importanza da dare alle attività ordinarie e straordinarie di pastorale giovanile.
In serata, il ricevimento per la tradizionale "Festa del Papa", al quale, oltre al Patriarca Neofit già citato, hanno preso parte rappresentanti della Chiesa Russo-Ortodossa, Armeno Apostolica, Rappresentanti della Chiesa e della Società Civile Bulgara, oltre ad un nutrito gruppo di Ambasciatori e Diplomatici delle Ambasciate a Sofia.

Indirizzo di saluto del Cardinale Leonardo Sandri, Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali, nell’incontro con i Consacrati e le Consacrate operanti nella città di Sofia - Concattedrale latina di San Giuseppe, venerdì 30 giugno 2017 A.D.
Eccellenza Reverendissima, Mons. Anselmo Pecorari, Nunzio Apostolico,
Eccellenza Reverendissima, Mons. ,, Vescovo di Sofia-Plovdiv,
Eccellenza Reverendissima, Mons. Hristo Proychov, Esarca e Presidente della Conferenza Episcopale Interrituale di Bulgaria,
Sorelle e fratelli nel Signore!
1. Sono lieto di compiere la mia seconda visita, dopo quella del 2010, come Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali in Bulgaria, incontrando tutti voi, che spendete la vostra vita nel servizio pastorale nella capitale di questa grande e antica Nazione. La visitai in qualità di Sostituto della Segreteria di Stato per preparare il viaggio di San Giovanni Paolo II, e accompagnai il Pontefice nella sua visita di quindici anni fa. Affido alla sua intercessione il nostro radunarci qui oggi, insieme a quella di San Giovanni XXIII che iniziò il suo servizio episcopale proprio qui in Bulgaria, nel 1925, in qualità di Delegato Apostolico. Sono due figure grandi nella storia contemporanea, ed entrambi possono illuminare la particolare vocazione ecclesiale della Chiesa di Bulgaria. Essa infatti respira realmente “a due polmoni”, anzitutto perchè la stessa Conferenza Episcopale è interrituale, composta dalle due diocesi latine, Sofia-Plovdiv e Nicopoli, e dall’Esarcato per i fedeli bizantini, e quindi ciascuno di voi deve poter attingere alle risorse del patrimonio spirituale, liturgico e teologico di entrambe le comunità. Non potrebbe essere così del resto, anche perchè in Bulgaria i cattolici sono un piccolo gregge, che vive fianco a fianco ai fratelli e le sorelle della Chiesa Ortodossa, e siamo pertanto chiamati a conoscere la ricchezza e la profondità della tradizione orientale, per continuare ad amare chi vive accanto a noi e insieme a noi testimonia l'unico nome di Cristo.
2. Le radici della fede in questa Nazione sono antiche, ed è giusto che tutti i Bulgari ne siano fieri; in particolare voglio ricordare la presenza e l’opera dei santi fratelli di Tessalonica, Cirillo e Metodio. Erano i tempi della Chiesa che sapeva vivere le differenze nell’armonia dell’unità, e si cercava di avere a cuore sempre l’annuncio del nome di Gesù. Venendo più vicino a noi, il secolo scorso ha visto l’affermarsi di forme di potere politico che hanno imposto una visione materialista ed atea della vita, mentre oggi la mentalità secolarizzata non è meno insidiosa, segnata dalla crisi del rispetto della dignità umana, il decadimento della famiglia, la mancanza di speranza in tanti delle giovani generazioni, la fatica ad accogliere ed integrare l’altro bisognoso. I campi in cui essere missionari sono dunque molteplici: desidero ringraziarvi per le opere che sostenete come sacerdoti diocesani, religiosi e religiose. Vi chiedo di non chiudervi ciascuno nella propria dimensione, ma a sentirvi sempre Chiesa: la mia comunità, il mio ordine religioso, la mia attività di apostolato non sono soltanto mie o della mia congregazione di appartenenza, ma rendono presente il volto di Cristo e della Chiesa che è madre. Questo respiro ecclesiale, cattolico, cioè universale, non può che aiutarci e aiutare le nostre comunità.
3. Dobbiamo interrogarci sul bene che stiamo compiendo, che è tanto, ed è una testimonianza e una provocazione per la società, ma anche su quello che possiamo compiere ancora di più. Le sfide sono tante, ma dobbiamo sempre partire dall’annuncio del Vangelo ai poveri, come criterio prioritario. Mi riferisco anzitutto alla grande povertà interiore, a cui possiamo accostarci con la tenerezza stessa di Gesù: sono le diverse forme di solitudine esistenziale, che può attraversare la vita dei giovani come degli adulti, quando sono privi della luce della speranza. Questo sarà tanto più urgente in un grande città come è la capitale in cui ci troviamo, con alcune presenze cosmopolite, alle quali dovremmo sempre garantire almeno una celebrazione nella loro lingua, o far sì che le realtà educative ed assistenziali, come le scuole, le Università o gli Ospedali possano sempre vedere una presenza ed una testimonianza cristiana.
4. Il Medio Oriente, che vive pagine di storia drammatica per la violenza del terrorismo e la guerra - penso in particolare alla Siria e all’Iraq, ma anche all’Egitto - sta vivendo pagine di martirio che Papa Francesco ha più volte definito come ecumenismo del sangue. Ad esso hanno fatto spesso riferimento il Patriarca Copto-Ortodosso, Sua Santità Tawadros II, come di recente anche Sua Santità Bartolomeo di Costantinopoli nel suo messaggio per la festa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo. La Chiesa Ortodossa di Mosca, con il Patriarca Sua Santità Kirill, è pure impegnata per la difesa dei nostri fratelli cristiani del Medio Oriente. La Bulgaria ha avuto pure i suoi martiri, nel secolo scorso, e penso al Beato Eugenio Bossilkov, Vescovo, e ai tre sacerdoti assunzionisti, ma anche tra i fratelli della Chiesa Ortodossa ci sono stati autentici testimoni che hanno effuso il loro sangue. Sulla comune testimonianza offerta dai martiri di ieri e di oggi, vi chiedo di continuare a sperare nei cammini verso l’unità visibile di tutti i fratelli in Cristo, e vi esorto a valorizzare i tanti gesti piccoli, quotidiani e nascosti che possono consolidare questi passi anche qui in Bulgaria: ogni contesto è particolare, può avere sensibilità più vicine o più lontane, ma non dobbiamo temere che la strada rimanga quella segnata dalla preghiera di Gesù nell’Ultima Cena: Ut unum sint! Che siano una cosa sola, come tu Padre, ed io, siamo una cosa sola!.
5. Altra realtà particolare che ci deve stare a cuore è quella dei giovani, anche in sintonia con quanto il Santo Padre ha chiesto alla Chiesa in preparazione al Sinodo dei Vescovi dedicato proprio a questo tema. Sentano la nostra sollecitudine nei loro confronti, la nostra disponibilità ad ascoltarli, ma anche doniamo loro delle parole coraggiose che li sappiano spronare a mete alte per il loro cammino. Camminiamo al loro fianco, nelle scuole, nelle Università, in altri contesti culturali e sociali, ed educhiamoli a sentirsi pellegrini dell’Assoluto. In modo speciale curiamo ed accompagniamo la preparazione al matrimonio e stiamo vicini alle giovani famiglie, vere piccole chiese domestiche.
6. Per sostenere la presenza e la testimonianza in tutti questi ambiti però, abbiate anzitutto cura di custodire la vostra vocazione e consacrazione: anche ciascuno di noi è tentato dal rischio dell’abitudine, a volte della desolazione rispetto ai risultati della propria opera, o può attraversare un momento di debolezza o stanchezza. Il profeta Isaia invita Israele a “ricordarsi della roccia da cui sei stato tagliato”. Rinnoviamo anche qui, questa sera, la memoria grata per la nostra chiamata, per quel SI che abbiamo pronunciato in risposta al SI di Dio alla nostra vita che ci donava di metterci alla sua sequela. Ogni tempo della vita e della vocazione ha una sua grazia particolare, che si manifesta a volte nella luce e nella gioia profonda interiore, a volte traspare attraverso qualche prova o fatica. Non dimentichiamoci del Signore che ha detto anzitutto ai discepoli: “Io sono con voi, tutti i giorni, sino alla fine del mondo”.
7.E per far questo, al di là dei differenti carismi a cui siamo legati per l’appartenenza a diverse Congregazioni o Istituti Religiosi, oppure nel servizio diocesano, invochiamo la presenza di Maria, che è Madre di Dio e Madre nostra. Ella ci aiuti ad essere padri e madri nello Spirito, a non sentirci sterili ma a custodire la fecondità della nostra scelta di vita. Così, anche attraverso i nostri volti e il nostro servizio, il popolo santo di Dio potrà rallegrarsi della maternità della Chiesa che non cessa di prendersi cura di lui e di introdurlo ai pascoli della vita eterna. Grazie

 


          Bulgarian Rose - Mahogany   

 

Na linha de perfumes de rosas , achei o Bulgarian Rose da Mahogany um desodorante colônia .A Mahogany é uma marca conhecida ,mas com chão pela frente .Tem ótimos produtos ,especialmente as loções corporais, também tem uma linha de body splash ,mas não conheço por isso não falo .É fraca na parte de maquiagens, ainda muito básica e na parte de embalagens , esse perfume Bulgarian é um exemplo disso,não tem nenhum charme na embalagem, pelo contrário, parece embalagem de perfume barato .O perfume tem um custo de 60 reais, e é um perfume muito bom, é seco, com um cheiro interessante de rosas ,é classificado como floral oriental , tem a
saída de limão, bergamota, mandarina, pétalas de rosa brancas e toque de cassis; o
corpo de rosa da bulgária, muguet, geléia de ameixa e de framboesa e o
fundo de benjoim, baunilha, fava tonka, sândalo, cedro, ambar e musk

É para ser usado a noite . Em geral os perfumes florais orientais assustam as pessoas mais conservadoras, porque muitas vezes são perfumes sedutores e intensos. Quem quiser usar um perfume intenso, mas leve, sedutor mas discreto , o Bulgarian é uma escolha perfeita, não agride o nariz de ninguém, tem uma fixação relativamente boa. É aquele perfume que só sentimos quando estamos muito próximos da pessoa .Para quem quer fugir um pouco dos cheiros óbvios, dos perfumes que todo mundo usa, Bulgarian funciona muito bem . Apesar de ter rosas na composição não envelhece.
Não é moderno nem clássico , mas navega bem na tentativa de ser um perfume forte e discreto ,sem se parecer aos que todo mundo usa.

          Can’t Stop the Chaos: Autonomous Resistance to the 2007 G8 in Germany    

From CrimethInc.

Ten years ago, Hamburg, Rostock, and the woods around the tiny German town of Heiligendamm witnessed massive confrontations as anarchists and other rebels attempted to interrupt and delegitimize the summit of the world’s eight most powerful nations. As the 2017 G20 Summit looms in Hamburg this July, we revisit the demonstrations that took place against the G8 summit in 2007—to seek strategic insights, study how the terrain has changed, and illustrate what it is like to lead lives of passionate resistance.

This is a revision of a text that originally appeared in Rolling Thunder #5, augmented with additional resources.


Typical German black bloc.


Hamburg, May 28: Preludes to Summits

Finally, something was happening.

After linking arms in flanks for five hours straight in a huge permitted march, we were getting antsy. This was the first major demonstration in the buildup to the G8 summit in Heiligendamm, and everyone wanted to start it off right. The city of Hamburg needed to send a message to the world that they had the “violent demonstrators” under control. The protesters wanted to tear the city apart, to show the G8 leaders that they were not welcome and that anyone who tries to host them will have to pay. With a thousand black-clad anarchists in the front and thousands of others behind, the tension was thick. Screaming “fight the system, fight the state, fight capitalism, fight G8,” the demonstrators were not willing to compromise their vision or momentum. But who would provoke whom first? Would the cops use the water cannons? Would the anarchists break through their lines and go off the script?

For two years, the German autonomous movement and the Dissent Network in particular organized from the USA to Turkey for one week of action. The stakes had never been higher: the “War on Terror” had cast a deathly pall over the worldwide struggle against capitalism and the state, but at the 2007 G8 anarchists and autonomists hoped to seize the stage of history by scoring a decisive victory against capital.

The modern incarnation of the Autonomen1 in Germany is distinctly anarchist, mostly young, and very, very punk. Even though the movement had been in disarray over the preceding years, the arrival of the G8, combined with the police raids in early May on anti-G8 centers of activity, united the usually divided and overly self-critical autonomist movement. To the chagrin of the police, the raids also backfired in the popular press; most of the media and even much of the public came over to the side of the dissidents. Furthermore, in “Red” Hamburg, the home of insurrections, pirates, and the world-renowned anti-fascist football league St. Pauli, it is hard to distinguish locals from the Black Bloc in the streets.

Move swiftly. Stop. Fight a bit. Grab something. Then run. Turn around. Watch out for the Snatch Squad. Which ones are they? Wearing all black with red diamonds on their back. Damn, there they are. They’re gonna try and grab us. Move! But who are those pigs? Don’t worry, it’s just the green team. Green team? Yeah, green uniforms, they’re like the National Guard. They won’t arrest you, they’ll just tussle a bit. And them? Who? The darker green and dark blue. Oh them, well, they’re here to stop you. Be careful—Shhhhhhh. What? Be quiet, they’re looking for us. OK, hold it… hold it… NOW!



The police were nervous, and rightfully so. For months, cars belonging to German officials related to the G8 had been burned in the streets. As the mobilization got going, internationals were streaming into the well-run convergence center in Hamburg, the two-decade-running squat Rote Flora. The police wanted nothing more than to release their inner fascists and ruthlessly clear the streets of all protesters. But due to factors such as public opinion and their brutality backfiring on them in the courts, the police could not simply beat protesters without pretext. Instead, they could only vent their frustration with an anal-retentive attention to detail about the smallest of the rules regarding banner size, demonstrators masking up, and so on: like a hybrid of the SS and school-crossing guards, they stopped demonstrations for up to thirty minutes or more for the most minor infractions of their rules.

This causes almost any march in Germany, including the march in Hamburg, to be an exercise in frustration, a chess game in which both sides try to bend, but not break, the rules through a strict process of negotiation—that is, at least until breaking the rules is advantageous. While marching, German anarchists more or less engage the police in careful negotiations until the permitted demonstration gets as close to the desired location as possible—such as a financial district, a fascist demonstration, or in this case the EU-ASEM Summit meeting in the town hall—and then all bets are off. After that, they often charge police lines, attempting to escape off the official route as a bloc or break into small affinity groups to build barricades and attack police cars—which is precisely what the march in Hamburg did.

As the melee between protestors and cops spread down the street, people started to hop a small fence into the parking lot of the soccer stadium. Soccer in Hamburg is a big deal; St. Pauli, the local team, is world-renowned for drawing some of the most anti-fascist hooligans in the world. I looked around and saw that we were in an enclosed space with few exits. It seemed only a matter of time before the police trapped us in this parking lot and beat us until we could be mass-arrested—so I hopped the fence into the stadium.

I’m short, so the climb was a little difficult, and I fell ungracefully over the fence—but when I looked up I found myself in a German teen anarchist’s dream-come-true: I’d escaped a police riot into the caring arms of the St. Pauli soccer team! Imagine running around Seattle during the WTO protests, air full of tear gas and the anguish of protestors being beaten by police, and opening a door to find yourself safely inside Rage Against the Machine’s practice studio.

The team was finishing up a daily soccer practice when they were interrupted by my hooded, masked fall from the heavens. We looked at each other in silence before I asked… “ummm, can I stay here for a bit?”

“Of course—would you like something to eat?” They introduced themselves to me and told me to make myself at home. So I took off my mask and chowed down on their vegetable platters.

At the end of the march, Black Bloc affinity groups rampaged throughout the town, fighting police and wrecking cars; when the police chased everyone back to the convergence center at Rote Flora, even the locals began fighting back against the hated riot police. A giant banner reading “Total Freedom”—as opposed to any supposed freedom democracy or the State can offer—had sailed above the march. At the end, there were eighty-five arrests, but the rest of us were totally free.

They’ve surrounded the Rote Flora. What? The convergence center, you know, that huge squat. Are they going in? Not likely, I think they’ll get a beating if they try. Barricades are going up, let’s get behind them. The water cannons are coming out. Well, move. Down this alley! OK. Wait, are we all together? Close, too close. I know. We were gonna go back and get you. What? That’s insane, they would’ve grabbed you too. Hey look, they’re sending in more. Did they declare a state of emergency? I heard that too. Shit, there’s waves and waves of them. Back to the Flora? No, it’s not safe. OK, then disappear. Thousands of us in the march. Hundreds rampaging in the streets. About eighty-five arrested. Not bad for a start. No, not bad at all.

At one point in Hamburg, a police officer who had taken off his helmet and armor was caught alone outside his van as the riots closed in. In a moment reminiscent of the murder of Carlo Giuliani by a police officer at the G8 in Genoa, the officer drew his gun—but just as he raised it in the air, the back window of the van behind him exploded, struck by a projectile, and he retreated. Thrown bricks save lives.

Rostock June 2: Nocturnes for Capital

In 1998, at the very beginning of the so-called “anti-globalization” movement, the G8 met in Birmingham only to find themselves surrounded by 70,000 activists organized by various NGOs and a raging Reclaim the Streets party downtown. In fear, they fled Birmingham to a more tranquil manor. In 2001, the NGOs under the umbrella of the Genoa Social Forum organized a march straight to the forbidden Red Zone where the summit was taking place, and the whole city hosting that year’s G8 was consumed in flames.

But the powers that be learn from their mistakes; unable to beat the demonstrators, they joined them instead, to lead them astray. In Scotland in 2005, the bizarre menage-a-trois of Bono, Tony Blair, and “anti-globalization” NGOs created the “Make Poverty History” march. In this guise, they tricked the vast majority of protesters into showing up in white—the color of surrender!—and marching in a parade through the half-empty downtown of Edinburgh, far from the summit. The theme of the parade was begging the G8 leaders to take action on their behalf, the opposite of direct action. This government-organized farce was the symbolic inversion of their defeats in Birmingham and Genoa.

A mere two years later, the slogan was no longer “Make Poverty History,” but “Make Capitalism History”—and the team colors had changed to from white to black. The march in Rostock was organized by a broad alliance of groups ranging from the Interventionist Left to ATTAC, anarchists and reformists united. In stark contrast to the “Make Poverty History” march that attempted to provide a safe and legal alternative to direct action, “Make Capitalism History” explicitly endorsed blockading the G8. The fact that popular sentiment among the protesters was in favor of direct action was a triumph of organization and outreach by the Dissent Network, reflecting the delegitimization of the G8 in the popular imagination.

Like some strange suburban guerrilla army, the bloc gathered itself in the trees in front of the shopping center. At first, it was so small I could barely find it. After a few minutes, as I found one friend after another after another, it became clear there were thousands of us. We put on our masks—a mundane act elsewhere, but a tremendous step in Germany. In Scotland, all the white clothes had reminded me of the Scottish sheep our good shepherd, Capital, was fattening for slaughter. From the moment our black masks went up in Germany, we were not sheep but a pack of wolves.



However, pointless marches are still fundamentally pointless even if they endorse direct action and encourage their entourage to stop marching and start blockading the G8. Unlike the march to the Red Zone in Genoa, this was not a militant march, but a stroll to an anti-capitalist rock concert featuring musicians such as Tom Morello and Die Toten Hosen. The Nazis had been planning their own “anti-G8” rally in Schwerin, but the police canceled both the Nazi event and the anti-fascist counter-protest at the last minute—so most of the Black Bloc ended up in the middle of the Rostock march.

Neither the police nor the Black Bloc seemed to be expecting anything to happen at this march, as most people had thought the street battle was to going to be either later during the G8 itself or against Nazis in Schwerin. That gave the day a genuine element of surprise. Unlike Hamburg, where the police “kettled” the demonstration and contained it right up to the last minute, in this demonstration the police kept a safe distance from the march, instead massing on the streets paralleling the demonstration.

The march ends, and my elation drops into disappointment as, yet again, nothing has happened. My arms are locked with the members of my affinity group, ranging from an incredibly lanky and calm North American man to a small yet fierce Bulgarian woman. All armed with black flags, we’re at least making good pictures for the spectacle. In a second, everything changes. A line of cops charges the Bloc, batons swinging. The lines in front of us turn and run, nearly trampling us. If there’s one thing German anarchists are good at, it’s running from cops. Our black flags are useless in the face of the cop onslaught, and a few of us throw them at the cops. Separated from the rest of the affinity group, myself and my remaining partner join the fray. More well-prepared than myself, some clever anarchists begin using chisels to tear up the paving stones. It’s not what’s beneath the paving stones that counts sometimes, it’s the paving stones themselves.

At the end of the demonstration, the Bloc found itself running more or less without incident into the middle of the “Make Capitalism History” concert and merging with the crowd. What precisely happened next is unclear, but an altercation broke out with one of the small squadrons of Rostock cops that were being sent in at seemingly random intervals to maintain order. The tactic of keeping the main forces hidden on the side streets served the purpose of protecting downtown Rostock from being destroyed, but failed utterly in controlling the Bloc.

Every time a squadron of Polizei were sent in, little clusters of black would form and move towards the squadron, like the attraction of iron fillings to a magnet. When the squadron attempted to arrest someone or attack the crowd, the clusters of the Black Bloc would rain cobblestones and empty glass bottles upon the cops. The cops then blindly rushed into the crowd, resulting in the Bloc dispersing rapidly, a reversal of their earlier magnetic attraction to the cops. Then the bloc would slowly reform to rain projectiles onto the cops until they retreated, unable to weather such a torrent of rocks and empty beer bottles. After all, the riot was at a rock concert!

Scattered, the Bloc slowly regroups at the kiosk to prepare for a second charge. My partner is exhausted, but excited by the chance to try yet another attack we rush forward with the Bloc. Around me, I hear the sounds of windows smashing. Then, someone—a civil cop, I think—screams “Police!” The crowd panics, and in the chaos we lose each other. I look desperately for my partner. No luck. I begin pelting the cops with glass bottles, in attempt to drive them back so we can rejoin the rest of the Bloc. Gotta love German beer, or at least the bottles.

Did the crowd reject the Black Bloc, pushing them out and sacrificing them to the cops? While some pacifists tried to “de-escalate” the situation by raising their hands in front of the cops, for the most part the crowd was angered by the police and merged with the Black Bloc. As the bands played on, one singer got up and said over the microphone “This is not the spirit of Scotland, this is the spirit of Genoa!”—a statement of somewhat dubious value out of context, but clearly the speaker thought this “Spirit of Genoa” was a good thing and intended to express support for those fighting the cops. Cars were overturned and set afire, cops retreated, water cannons came out, and the bands played on as the crowd repulsed line after line of police charges—this was no Bono playing to complacent crowds at Live8. This was the redemptive spirit of Genoa—the spirit of resistance in the face of state violence, spreading like a virus through a crowd everyone had expected would just listen peacefully to the bands. The battle in Rostock was a victory like the inaugural protest against the G8 in Birmingham, and the spell that had been cast in Scotland to assimilate and pacify the “anti-globalization” movement was broken.

I step around a corner and see a line of cops standing guard next to the broken windows—so I hurl a glass bottle into the face of the closest officer. My bottle leaves my hand a few seconds too late, as the cops are already beginning a charge—although I do hear the satisfying shatter of the bottle against his helmet. Panicking, I turn to run, but a baton hits the nape of my neck and I fall to the asphalt.

Batons are beating my back and legs, gloved hands twisting my fingers and joints. I wrest my joints and hands free again and again, resolving to stay put as the cops pull my head up by my hair to take my picture. After some indeterminate amount of time, I see rocks and bottles soaring overhead. Black out. Darkness. Light. Then the impossible: there are no cops on top of me! The crowd has forced them to retreat! I stand up and run at breakneck speed away from the police and into the crowd, aiming for the only safe place within reach: the deck of the Greenpeace ship parked near the waterfront. Where’s my partner? Was she arrested? Hurt? Due to my reckless charge? I feel my soul collapse. Those who are not behind bars have to live with the consequences of their actions, and for the first time in my life I wish I had been caught.


Preparing to confront police in Rostock.


Heiligendamm, June 6-7: Blockades Without End

After Genoa, the next G8 summit was moved the literal summit of a mountain in Evian, far from the urban terrain protesters have been accustomed to since the Paris Commune. This tactic of placing the meeting in a rural location inspired a new counter-tactic: spreading the blockades across miles and miles of difficult rural terrain. The summit site was hopelessly walled off, so the idea was to block the roads leading to and from it, so reporters and other sycophants couldn’t reach the gates.

Anarchy always has at least two faces: one of chaos and one of self-organization. If the streets of Hamburg and Rostock exemplified the beautiful chaos of our movement, the self-organization of Camp Reddelich showed the other. Transforming an empty field of grass next to a slaughterhouse into a thriving village in less than a week, anarchists of every stripe proved that they are capable of running their own lives without governments or capitalists, police or prisons. Antifascist, Queer, Yellow, and Internationalist barrios sprouted organically as if from the earth. Kitchens dotted the fields along with security towers, tool-making workshops, Indymedia centers, training tents, info-booths, trauma tents, anti-sexist spaces, and thousands of other tents, all providing the physical and emotional spaces for people to organize, strategize, evaluate, share, dance, and live free. This autonomous zone, mirrored by two other rural camps and multiple urban convergence centers across Germany, was the birthplace of a million secret plans.


Camp Reddelich, set up to house demonstrators during the 2007 G8.


Rural blockades require putting protesters in the countryside, so protest camps developed as a necessary prerequisite for large-scale rural direct action. In a step above the single camp at Stirling during the 2005 G8, hearkening back to the multiple camps at the 2003 G8 in Lausanne and Annemasse, the Dissent Network and the Interventionist Left set up three different camps. The first, Camp Rostock, was nearest to the city and held innumerable communists and NGO organizations—not to mention quite a few punks too drunk to get to other camps and a few clever anarchists who wanted some cover. The second, Camp Reddelich, was the closest to the “Red Zone,” and accordingly held almost entirely anarchists. The third, Camp Wichmannsdorf, was the domain of the more traditionally non-violent anti-nuclear blockaders—though in Germany, the line between the Black Bloc and non-violent civil disobedience against nuclear weapons is thin.

The camps were all incredibly well-functioning, with security shifts on watch-towers, self-organized canteens feeding thousands, anarchist-run bars (not serving the day before the blockades!), tents to deal with mainstream press, mobile Indymedia centres on wheels, endless conspiratorial meetings—and even showers! There was only one component missing: in the aftermath of Rostock, the alliance between the Interventionist Left and the autonomous movement started fraying, and the Dissent Network—perhaps having last minute qualms as the day of action approached—did not convene a public meeting about plans.

Raids were a constant worry at the camp and defensive measures were prepared in case of attack: barricades of scrap wood and metal, trenches to stop police vehicles, piles of bottles and rocks. The alarm was sounded one night at 3:30 a.m. when six vans pulled up to the front entrance and police in riot gear stepped out. The night watch rang the alarm and within three minutes a large black bloc had formed at the front gate. The vans left as quickly as they’d arrived and the camp returned to sleep.

From the helicopters’ perspective, we must have looked quite threatening. Groups of eight to twelve all over the camp were huddling in circles, poring endlessly over topographical maps and transportation routes. Whispers circulated in thirty languages from barrio to barrio about which intersections to target, how to get there, when to move on, whether to join the official blockades or form a suicide bloc to charge the gates. The bars and kitchens swarmed with international anti-capitalists debating past summit strategies, victories and failures, similarities to the present and new challenges. How would the sixteen thousand cops respond to a direct attack on the fence? To an attack on the police themselves? Which roads are still open? How can we get there? How will we hold them? Block G8 had a plan, but the insurrectionary anarchists didn’t—or if any of them did, at least no one would discuss it publicly. Paranoia filled the air and meetings got more and more clandestine, finally to a point at which the decentralization of knowledge was almost debilitating. Fuck it, we have to try something.

Earlier rural blockades in both Evian and Gleneagles had failed because they didn’t last more than a few hours and so could not actually “shut down” the summit. As one popular poster in Germany put it, Bewegen, Blockieren, Bleiben—“Move. Block. Remain.” That critical “remain” had been left out of previous summit attempts. The strategic change was not to blockade as either mobile blocs or small groups jumping in and out of the road, as at previous summits, but to mass as many people as possible in the roads near the main entrances to Heiligendamm to blockade them in a non-violent manner, staying until the police literally dragged people off. While previous blockades had aimed for small numbers and offered virtually no training, the “Block G8” campaign returned to the mass non-violence civil disobedience that was so crucial to success in Seattle but curiously and detrimentally absent at almost all subsequent summit protests. While the pacifist nature of this approach caused many of the “more-militant-than-thou” anarchists to mock it, the simplicity and accessibility of this approach enabled thousands of untrained Germans to join in the blockades.

Due to their long history of anti-nuclear Castor blockades, the German autonomous movement—unlike autonomous movements in places like Greece and the US—is experienced both at throwing rocks and erecting peaceful blockades. Internationals were bewildered as the Autonomen changed tactics from throwing rocks to sitting in streets for the day of blockades. When Block G8 moved into action on Wednesday, the cops more or less permitted it happen, much to the surprise of all—as they had quashed all demonstrations in the area after the riot in Rostock. Perhaps now that the G8 had officially begun, the police had to prove Germany was a civilized country without a near-fascist police force. Combined with Rostock, it was like a left punch of Black Bloc aggression followed by a right hook of colorful and effective blockades.

It wasn’t until I saw the multi-colored array of 5000 people marching in the bright green fields under a soft blue sky with helicopters above and police below that it hit me: we shouldn’t have underestimated the official blockades. Although the international anarchists and autonomists had decided against forming a militant presence at these blockades due to pressure from Block G8 organizers to remain nonviolent, there were still a number of us in black ready to throw down if necessary. As we tore through fields evading police lines, you could feel the growing excitement and power of the crowd. Breaking up into different columns to get past the police, we succeeded again and again in reaching the streets. Finally we saw it, the fence, with six layers of cops protecting it. Many hopped onto the main street and laid down immediately. The autonomous bloc started tearing down a barbed wire fence next to a forest that would serve as our escape route if necessary. The official organizers were scared and tried to dissuade us while the media captured their sexy images. The clowns played their games, the cops stood their ground, and everyone just sat there, waiting, for days.


Blockading the way to Heiligendamm.


Since the Block G8 campaign organized openly, it’s possible that the police knew the locations of the blockades and funneled all important delegates down another road, letting the protesters blockade the “main gates” to Heiligendamm. This raises the disturbing possibility that the G8 leaders are happy to allow the spectacle of a blockade to happen so long as it remains colorful, non-violent, and does not interrupt their actual operations. While the Block G8 plan and non-violence guidelines were mostly respected on Wednesday, on Thursday all bets were off.

Protesters swept across the fields of Heiligendamm and tried to blockade nearly every road. The day started off with a nearly comic attempt to repeat the “Suicide March” Black Bloc that was so successful at Gleneagles during the 2005 G8. Only a few hundred people, the Bloc barely got out of Camp Reddelich before being assaulted by cops and fleeing back in; in retaliation, the cops surrounded the entrance to the camp, preventing the 6 am Dissent Bloc from leaving. At the same time, mostly German groups struck with a series of decentralized blockades on major roads, achieving varying degrees of success. The paranoia and tight-lipped nature of the German autonomous movement left many of the internationals at the camp isolated, frustrated, and surrounded by cops, with only the all-knowing and all-seeing “Infopoint” to help them—although the Indymedia dispatch line ended up being invaluably useful for those who knew about it.

As the police left the front of the camps, the internationals formed a “rolling blockades” march that left camp at 9 am. In two hours they reached the gates of Heiligendamm itself, blockading the roads and using the “five fingers make a fist” strategy when confronted by the police: breaking into smaller groups and reforming on the other side of police lines. At one point, in a moment of long-overdue poetic justice, the Russian delegates were blocked by Eastern Europeans who smashed their car! By the end of the day, the blockades had so disrupted the summit that the police began clearing them with unusual ferocity, using water cannons to shoot water mixed with tear gas. Some blockaders refused to leave and continued to resist, turning Block G8 blockades into autonomous blockades. In the end, what started as colorful blockades of clowns and pacifists gained the air of a battlefield, and what had seemed certain defeat became apparent victory.

At the West Gate, a car carrying Russian delegates attempted to pass protesters. It was stopped and the wheels were deflated and the exhaust pipe broken. Activists then opened the trunk and removed the belongings of the delegates, just as the G8 removes the freedom of those it claims to represent. Once the trunk was opened the car drove into people, resulting in its windows being smashed.

“A few days a go the BBC reported that Tony Blair was ‘concerned’ about the lack of democracy in Russia. The Russian government doesn’t give a fuck if he is concerned or not. Hopefully they will listen to this act of resistance.” -From a communiqué posted to Indymedia

Berlin, June 8: Anticlimax

Our hopes weren’t dashed yet. The next morning our rural fun was to begin. We started early, around 3 am. First decision: suicide march or autonomous blockade? We chose the latter and moved slowly into position. Cars were dropping off packs of people by the woods. Affinity groups disappeared into the forest as endless lines of cop vans appeared. It seemed like the setting for a Wild West shootout, with both sides building up their arsenals and waiting for the other to move first. Seventy-five of us made it safely inside, transformed into a black mob, and moved like a guerrilla army through the brush, dodging under tree cover when helicopters swooped by. Camouflage would have been better than black—but hey, we’re city folks; black’s our forte.

With saws and combustibles in hand, ready to light up the morning with a spectacular blockade, we called a last minute meeting. Speaking in four languages through our masks in the black forests of northern Germany, we called it off. It was a trap. Other blockades on the same road happened and all were arrested immediately with no effect. Disappointed yet feeling good about our judgment, we dispersed into our casual clothes and headed for Berlin, where the final show was about to begin.

Some of the internationals were frustrated with the entire “Plan A” of the blockades. Coming out of a year-long analysis of previous mass mobilizations, Genoa in particular, various insurrectionists decided that it was time to take the initiative and try something new. Instead of following the lead of the traditional Left, using its large marches and demonstrations as cover for breaking windows and burning cars, they decided to see if they could launch a strategic attack by themselves, one that would violate the traditional set-piece roles of mass mobilizations. With the help of some of the German Autonomen, a secretive “Plan B” was organized in case the blockades failed. While the blockades appeared successful, on the final day of action a banner appeared on the two decrepit cement towers overlooking Camp Reddelich: “Plan B: Burn Berlin!”

Plan B resembled the idea behind the Seattle Black Bloc, when an autonomous bloc took advantage of police being distracted by blockades to wreck the shopping district—but instead of happening outside the summit, it was to take place in the nearest large city. Tactically, it was attractive, since on the day when a thousand Berlin police would be distracted by dealing with the blockades a Black Bloc could more easily strike the heart of financial capital in Berlin. However, only a few hundred people showed up, surrounded by riot police and infiltrated with undercover civil cops. A piece of paper went from hand to hand notifying protesters they should move to Rosenthal Place to begin a riot, but by the time the crowd got there the police were already there. Strangely enough, there were almost no Germans at the Reclaim the Streets, and it ended without any more incident than a few destroyed cars.

While the Berlin police may not have known about Plan B, many anarchists did not either. Perhaps the vast decentralized infrastructure of three separate camps made communication impossible; it takes more than a good idea to get people involved. Also, there was a real lack of support from many Berlin autonomists, who originally seemed to pledge their support. This might be understandable: their primary social center, Køpi, is threatened with eviction, and a major riot in Berlin would have brought harsh repression upon them. It would have been far better for all involved if locals had been more upfront about their doubts instead of simply not showing up.

The idea of separating aggressive demonstrators from pacifists by giving each their “own” day of action divides the movement tactically and temporally, which plays perfectly into the hands of the police. It’s far better to divide spatially if numbers allow, but to act all at once on the same day. Dividing the movement spatially over Rostock, Berlin, Hamburg, and Heiligendamm definitely stretched the police to their breaking point, but made coordination difficult at best. In hindsight, doing anything new and dangerous requires not only an adequate assessment of your numbers and strength but also truly believing it will work. Plan B failed on account of a crisis of faith.

We sat in the darkness, Berlin far from in flames and only the ghosts of our dreams to haunt us. Slightly drunk, a comrade from Greece muttered, “In Greece, you are welcome in my house. In Greece, all of us will make bottles together, and throw them at the fascists, and…” He was almost choking. He turned to me and said, “Now is time for that most sad of moments, the emptying of the Molotovs.”


Confrontations in Rostock.


Tentative Conclusions

When revolutionary movements take the historical stage, as the “movement of movements” did at the end of the last century, there inevitably follows an equal and opposite wave of counterrevolution.2 As the curtain falls upon the reaction to “anti-globalization” known as the “War on Terror,” it becomes ever more urgent for a new rupture to reorient the world for another revolutionary moment. Today, the crises of migration, climate change, and the failure of global capital are far more important than the bankrupt narrative of terror. Despite the hype of the Dissent Network, the 2007 G8 was not the rupture we were waiting for—but it was a strategic realignment of the global movement, positioning us to strike and tear the seems of history apart to create that much-needed rupture. As any martial artist can tell you, the positioning for the strike is as important as the strike itself.

Movements decline, dissolving into fragments and micro-parties, failing to grasp the imaginations of even their own most dedicated adherents. Movements rise, consolidating new assemblages, spreading hope to even the most forlorn hearts. After Seattle, there was a rapid if unarticulated consolidation across completely unexpected boundaries, leading to the christening of the “movement of movements.” Through avenues such as the radical “fringe” of the social forums and endless gatherings, a coherent critique of capitalism, most vocal in the Global South, began slowly but surely penetrating the movements in the West and North. After September 11, 2001, the movement fractured: the “center,” organized labor and NGOs, fled back to the welcoming arms of the State—or, in parts of the Global South, actually took over the State apparatus. This left only a ragtag bunch of anti-capitalists throwing themselves from defeat to defeat in the streets, reaching a nadir in the United States with the FTAA protests in Miami 2003.

After September 11, suddenly everyone in the streets was “against capitalism”—not because of the growth or radicalization of the movement, but because its collapse had left what was once its periphery as its center. The anarchist critique of global capitalism incubated in these summits spread to many people outside the anti-globalization movement, and what was a defeat in the streets became a victory in the battle of ideas.

Starting at Evian, moving through Gleneagles, and reaching its apex at Heiligendamm, the true miracle of post-Genoa G8 protests was that what appeared to be the dying gasp of the movement in Europe has effectively reconstituted a growing “movement of movements” with anti-capitalism as its center. Everyone from the Interventionist Left to the Dissent Network put aside petty politics to work together to increase the momentum of the movement as a whole. Due to the work of the Interventionist Left, most NGOs of note endorsed blockading the G8—something still unimaginable in the US and Britain. Unlike the 2005 G8, reformist NGOs and political parties that tried to organize “alternative summits” and “rock concerts to fight poverty” met with low attendance, for the “hip” thing to do was direct action. The enemy—global capitalism—was identified far more clearly than it ever was in Seattle or Genoa. Thousands of people participated in their first direct action in the streets of Rostock and fields of Heiligendamm. The climate is changing: it’s becoming anti-capitalist.

One question for the new manifestation of the “movement of movements” is how to deal with those other “anti-capitalists,” the resurgent fascists—who took advantage of the G8 to articulate their own warped “Third Position” against capitalism by marching against the G8 in Berlin and Lueneberg. Luckily, the fascists were marginalized by the “movement of movements,” whose act of blockading and fighting police stole the show. The distinction between the “movement of movements” and the fascists in Germany is that “the movement of movements” is fundamentally invested in open space, while the fascists want to reconstitute a closed world based on mythical ethnicities. It may be the battle between these two forces that takes the stage once the G8 is in the grave.

There is a logic to blockades and open space. Humans are creatures of habit, socially imprisoned by millennia-old closed systems of despair and discipline. To even begin to hear the voices of our desires that are otherwise muted by the hustle of everyday life under capitalism, we need open space. Here lies the paradox: today, the only way to create open spaces is through acts of closing, acts that blockade the circuits of capitalism. By blockading the flow of traffic, guilt, property, greed—whatever flows enable the growth of capital at the expense of the living—we create space for the living to flourish. These blockades may shut down roads or railways, but they open up space for new types of social relationships. During the blockades, we find ourselves accidental revolutionaries. By blockading the summit, our desire for safety is magically superseded, and our other desires flow naturally into the gap to become an unexpected reality. In a world enclosed, opening space this way allows us to shed our skins as workers, as students, as women, as men, as Germans, as members of this faction or that, and experience ourselves as part of something greater. These moments of freedom burn themselves into our memories, and it is our quest for such moments that causes us to keep coming back, summit after summit, regardless of the odds.


The black bloc in Rostock, June 2007.


This is the secret of the rock thrown at the cop—and yes, the Black Bloc did throw the first stone! It is only through such a moment of negation, through the blockading of the police beneath a hail of stones, that we could create an open space, one that reflects the magnitude of what is at stake in these summits. Had the marches passed in peace, it would have been the tragic peace of the graveyard. Far better for us to throw our cobblestones—if trees and polar bears and the human beings marginalized in the ghettos of the global capitalism could, they would be going after the police with a lot more than cobblestones. It doesn’t hurt to bring the violence that lies beneath the veneer of capital in Western countries up to the surface, either. The real question can no longer go unspoken: “What is the appropriate response to a world of capitalist violence?”

All anarchists are comrades in a new sort of international brigade, and we must set our sights beyond battles like the one in Rostock. The networking that happens before the blockade, before the battle with the cops, lays the foundation for all our future blockades and battles and gives us our ultimate chance for decisive victory over capital. The real international summit was not at Heiligendamm—that was just a PR stunt for a few would-be leaders, and the fact that they needed 16,000 mercenaries to protect them from the rest of us reveals the worthlessness of power. The real international summit took place in the convergence centers and camps where thousands of brave, unshaven, and driven men and women whose names will never appear in history books organized their own daily lives, found unexpected friendships, hatched hopelessly idealistic conspiracies, and took to the streets and fields together. Regardless of the outcome of any particular demonstration, our international brigade will return home to the snows of Siberia and the strip-malls of America to share stories with those who could not go and e-mail newfound friends. The international brigades grow, the network beneath the network, the hidden roots that will blossom into the open space our world so desperately needs: a world outside the death-grip of the G8, a world we have glimpsed in the convergence centers, the camps, and—in our better moments—ourselves.


From 2007 to 2017, from G8 to G20, the struggle continues.



Appendix: Two Narratives from the 2007 G8

The march came to a standoff with the cops on a bridge over one of Hamburg’s downtown canals. The organizers called off the march at this point, letting everyone know that if they stayed it was no longer a permitted action. This was not so much a way to separate themselves from the “bad” unpermitted demonstrators or to encourage people to leave, but rather a license for those participants who wanted to throw down to go ahead and do so. Roughly 500 in black bloc stuck around, milling about in AG’s and figuring out what to do. In front of the march was a line of cops backed by water cannons, behind the march was an intersection we turn from, the two sides of which that weren’t walked by demonstrators marked off by rows of police and water cannons. The bloc made an offensive on the cops, but could not push through. The police made a few offensives on the demonstrators, and arrested a few. As time passed and passivity persisted, the chances were looking worse and worse for the few hundred demonstrators left. The only ways out were back the route we marched, lined with police, or down a walkway that traced along the side of the canal. Our AG started to file out down the pedestrian walkway, expecting to leave the demonstration. But as we turned up a street that paralleled the road to City Hall (where the ASEM meeting was occurring), we saw that the demonstration was following us! A sea of black began to emerge behind us. And much to our delight, as we continued to look back, the cops had chosen to stay on their bridge and leave our slowly building mass alone.

We walked for a few humble, residential blocks in total silence, total anonymity. On a few occasions someone would attempt to start a chant, but those nearby would hush them back to our stealthy silence. We turned up a hill, and as I secured my bandana and hoodie, I heard a comrade greet me. It was an Italian I had shared the kitchen with a few days before at the Rote Flora. His English was not very good, so we joked by sticking vegetables in each other’s pockets. It was exciting to see someone I had shared such a humble experience of international protest insanity with in another light, ready to cook up something different that day. The bloc came to a halt in a courtyard around the corner from the main strasse north of the City Hall. We rested for a moment, everyone silent.

People exchanged looks and picked up cobblestones. After a day of reacting and defending ourselves from the police, it was a bit alien to be in a position to act. But soon enough, someone called out “What are we waiting for?” and we charged into the street. Police were already chasing a few stray demonstrators up the road, and were swarmed by our group. For a few blocks the crowd dispersed and converged, attacking the police along the way. For an American like myself, it was a little strange that people weren’t seeking out banks or property, content with focusing on fighting the cops as a target rather than an obstacle.

As the melee between protestors and cops rolled down the street, people started to hop a small fence into the parking lot of the soccer stadium. Soccer in Hamburg is a big deal; St. Pauli, the local team, is world-renowned for having some of the most anti-fascist holligans (and for that matter, hooligan antifas) in the world. But these anarchists weren’t rushing to get tickets for the game (St. Pauli righteously defeated Nazi-fan-based team Bremen two days prior), it was just a quick escape from the police. I looked around and saw that we were in an enclosed space, with really only a few exits… it seemed like a matter of time until the police trapped us all in this parking lot and beat us until we could be mass arrested. So I hopped the fence into the stadium.

Being short, the climb was a little difficult, and I had an ungraceful fall over the fence… but when I looked up I found myself before any German teen anarchist’s dream-come-true… to have escaped a police riot and be delivered into the caring arms of the St. Pauli soccer team! Truly, a comparison cannot be drawn to an American context for how cartoonishly fantastic this fate was. Imagine running around Seattle in ’99, air full of tear gas and the anguish of protestors being beaten by police, and then opening a door to find yourself safely inside Rage Against the Machine’s practice studio. The team was finishing up a daily soccer practice when they were interrupted by my hooded, masked fall from the heavens. We looked at each other for a bit before I asked, “Ummm… can I stay here for a bit?”

“Of course—would you like something to eat?”

“Uh… sure.”

They introduced themselves to me one by one, and told me to make myself at home. So I took off my mask and hoodie, and chowed down on their vegetable platters.

Once things had calmed down, I said farewell to my athletic caretakers and headed back to the reconvergence point my affinity group had chosen earlier, near the Rote Flora. Each of us couldn’t believe the others were OK, but my story took the cake. As we walked around we saw hordes of punks, anarchists, and other black-clad people just chilling on street corners… while cops were across the street! We were sketched out as hell, but as we walked on it just did not seem like mass arrests were a German police phenomenon. There were some small riots around the Rote Flora, and in front of it to defend it from getting raided (which it was not!), and this is what made the nightly news. But for those of us who were there for the action earlier in the day… we knew real revolution wouldn’t be broadcast, mass arrested, or in the context of a large, liberal march. It set the tone for the rest of the G8.




Brigada Flores Magon were the last band to play in Camp Reddelich the evening before the blockades. They played a solid set with rowdy anarchist skinhead anthems for Latin America, solidarity, Carlo Giuliani, and resistance. During their last song four hooded figures wearing balaclavas emerged from behind the stage, each with two of the G8 nations flags. They perched themselves on the barrier between the crowd and band, and held the flags high for all to see. A fifth black mask emerged, this one with a torch. They parted the crowd and proceeded to burn each of the G8 nation’s flags. BFM ended their set shouting, “See you at the blockades! Block G8!” before the final cymbal crash. Mmm, it really got me pumped. I took the train back to Camp Rostock and got barely three hours of sleep before waking up for our Bike Bloc to the blockade rally point.

Only a few people responded to our bike bloc call, and we got controlled on our way to the rally point. On our way we encountered another group of cycling German radicals coming our direction. They shouted to us to turn around, because a polizei van was hot on their trail. So we turned around, and as the polizei van sped up to close off the path ahead of us, the German bicycle squad shouted “OK! Now turn back!” and then darted off into a trail that the van could not follow—they tricked the police! It was going to be a good day!

We got to the rally point and people were handing out water, food, bags of hay to sit on, and there was a festive soccer game happening. The rally point was a soccer field in the middle of a very rural area. My partner and I fell asleep for what felt like hours, but must have been only thirty minutes or so. We awoke to the march from one of the camps converging on our site, which was the signal to form into our fingers. We lined up, parallel to the police line, but much further extended. I saw the yellow finger, all the way at the end of the line, starting to hop the local farmer’s fence and trod into the field. No sooner did this happen than someone shouted out “Here we go!” and our blue finger began to move.

To my surprise, the tactic was working. The police just stayed on the road, at this point not even attacking any of the demonstrators. Strategic insight: if you know the police department where you are demonstrating does not have the jail capacity to arrest and hold your numbers, there is only so much they can use physical force to accomplish. This was important in Seattle, where the police vastly underestimated the numbers they needed, and was true in Germany as well. We can also see this as a need for us to focus our direct action strategies to smaller towns where we can have a larger impact.

The march through the fields was somewhat surreal. For years, I’ve heard rhetoric thrown around about how protests have the significance of battles for our movement(s). For the first time, the imagery I saw matched my idea of “battle.” Files of demonstrators marched on the horizon, on hills so that the morning sun silhouetted them. At one point in the march, we passed a cattle farm. The cows, seeing what they recognized as a large herd, started to herd alongside us on the other side of the fence, the vegans in the march were delighted and erupted in animal liberation jargon.

Finally, we were getting closer to the road we needed to block. It was the designated emergency access/exit road for the G8 summit, not the main roads that delegates, corporate lobbyists, caterers, and media planned to arrive on—but the back up plan for if those roads were blocked… as they obviously were going to be. We had to cross two roads to get there. I don’t know if this was the feeling of every finger that day, but it sure seemed like we were always the ones sent in first to push through the cops. As we got closer, the police got meaner. Helicopters circled around us and dropped off more police to block the road with. Water cannons roamed back and forth on the streets, and then they started to fire. As one pointed its gun at me, I froze. I definitely had not prepared myself for the possibility of being shot by a water cannon.

So I got squirted. At first I thought it wasn’t so bad… after all it was a hot day and I welcomed being soaked in water. But soon afterwards the chemical weapons (mace, pepperspray, tear gas, something like that) laced into the water started to burn. This was happening all over the field, and a group of people started to get encircled further away. Some of the younger, inexperienced folks in our affinity group began to condemn the march, proclaim we were doomed, that we should just give up now. Being so close, and having walked so far through stinging, wet, gross cropfields—I knew there was no turning back. My partner and I walked up to the police line after recovering from my burning sensations. We pushed each other to dare to break through the line.

“Come on, there’s a break, we can do it!”

“No, no one’s through, they’ll nab us—”

“Someone has to be the first!”

“But what about—”

“COME ON!”

I’m really glad I had a partner who could push me without making me feel unsafe. I recommend being in affinity groups with people who you feel safe with, but who encourage you to be daring outside of your comfort level. So… we outran a Bulgarian water cannon that was speeding down the road, and once we were on the other side… unscathed, not arrested, we saw others had broken through as well, and then more, and more, and more, until everyone was through safely.

At the second line, a large number of people lined up parallel to the police. In our affinity group we were preparing for more spraying, and even some clubbing at this point; but as we were scanning the line for a break in police, one officer just waved his hand authoritatively, as if to say “come on, just walk through.” My partner and I looked at each other in disbelief. We took some unsure steps, and then walked through to the other side. The police admitted powerlessness… at least a few did, and their line was only as strong as their weakest link. We made it through to the access road, which was in the middle of a residential area.

The Block G8 coalition decided on a strategy of nonviolence, so their tactic for self-defense was to encourage and escort as much media as possible through to stick around the blockades. This, combined with the fact that it was a residential neighborhood brought up some strategic questions… Should we let residents of the neighborhood be able to drive through? How far down the blockade could media go?

Most of the neighbors just used bicycles to get through, for it was still pretty troubling to get a car through. After the first day of seeing fancy rental cars with out of town tags be let through, media come through on motorcycles and bicycles, people started to question the effectiveness of the blockade. The conflict was between having an effective blockade and being kind and respectful to residents of the neighborhood our blockade was situated in. In my opinion, we should have been an uncompromising blockade. To prioritize not wanting to look “bad” over the effectiveness of our action, logically, made it at times ineffective. Largely, we shut down the road from media, corporate lobbyists, and food being delivered—and absolutely no delegates would come through our blockade. At one point, in a comical turning of tables, the police trapped between the blockade and the summit begged us to let them drive their van out—for they were hungry and tired. We decided not to let them leave and for them to figure out another way.

In one outrageous situation, on the morning of the second day of the summit and blockades, the sleeping mass of the blockade was awoken by people on the security team—a group of people who said they would work as liaisons to pass on the decisions from the spokescouncil to people trying to get through with cars. They shouted “Get up, clear the way, the firetruck needs to get through.” somebody else responded, “What business does a fire truck have here at 5 in the morning?” The security team responded, “There is a burning blockade down the way, it needs to be put out.” It turned out to just be a rumor anyways, but that the security people would allow fire trucks to be let through to shut down a fucking blockade was outrageous. In our affinity group, we decided to go to the front of the blockade to make sure nothing else like this happened. We told the AG of Danes in front of us, so they would know that there would be a gap behind them that needed closing—but they too were angered and came along to the front. We pissed off the security team a few times by not letting certain cars through, but in the end this gave them more leverage to say, “Sorry, but these crazy assholes just wont move… there’s nothing I can do.”

Strategic insight: All in all, the effectiveness of a blockade is measured by its disruption. It should be explained as an important tactic in shutting down whatever evil matter is at hand. To frame it as a measure used to control people and make sure they are not whatever category of “bad guys” we happen to be protesting (delegates, cops, ambassadors, etc.) turns the blockaders into an occupying force, regulating the flow of traffic. Inspirational and radical possibilities of social interaction that did not replicate police but rather cooperation did occur during our blockade. Demonstrators aided in carrying groceries to residents’ homes, helped fix bicycles that had not left the garage in months, and exchanged conversation and respectful debate with people in the neighborhood. The mutual aid was indeed reciprocal, with neighbors providing gallons upon gallons of water to thirsty blockaders, and at times giving us some heads up of police activity up the road.


Beneath the concrete, the paving stones: tearing up concrete in Rostock to prepare projectiles.

  1. “Autonomen” is the German word for participants in autonomous movements, including Autonomous Marxists (see this issue’s glossary of terms) and anarchists; one can trace the European roots of these movements back to Italy in the 1970s. 

  2. These words ring all the more true ten years later, in 2017, when the worldwide wave of uprisings and occupations of 2008-2013 has given way to a worldwide wave of reaction, from Ukraine and Brazil to the the US and France.

          NetBSD developer summit at EuroBSDCon 2014 in Sofia   

There was a nice, friendly and informal summit of NetBSD developers (and interested users) in Sofia on Friday, September 26, 2014.

Bernd Ernesti (veego@) took this photo:

In the back row from left to right:
Masao Uebayashi (uebayasi), Thomas Klausner (wiz), Yann Sionneau, Marc Balmer (mbalmer), Justin Cormack (justin), Jaap Boender (jaapb), Adrian Steinmann (ast), Martin Husemann (martin), Taylor R Campbell (riastradh), Michael van Elst (mlelstv), Sevan Janiyan, Alexander Nasonov (alnsn).
In the front row, from left to right:
Julian Coleman (jdc), Joerg Sonnenberger (joerg), Valeriy E. Ushakov (uwe), Christoph Badura (bad), S.P.Zeidler (spz), Pierre Pronchery (khorben), Stephen Borrill (sborrill)

Some Developers made it to the conference only after the summit, so Emmanuel Dreyfus (manu), Luke Mewburn (lukem) and Lourival Neto (lneto) are unfortunately missing on that picture.

Marc Balmer presented some slides prepared by Masanobu SAITOH about ongoing work at IIJ.

Marc also proposed some extensions to the in-tree httpd (aka bozohttpd) to allow creation of simple dynamic content via "Lua templates". The question whether it would be possible to serve www.netbsd.org by bozohttpd was discussed, and only administrative reasons seem to prevent it - which was overall considered "good enough".

Pierre Pronchery presented his work on EdgeBSD - and why he does not consider it a fork, but more a playground for experimentation. He also reported on some of his experiences with using git on the NetBSD source tree.

Two more slightly TNF internal issues were discussed, and after that the whole crowd moved to dinner (including a bit of Bulgarian wine).

Having an in-person meeting of a relative huge number of NetBSD developers was considered very useful and we will try to repeat it at other occasions. Next time, if similar attendance is likely, we will plan for more time (like a full day) and also create a schedule of talks/presentations up front, still with the option to add ad-hoc ones.

          RESTAURANT REVIEW # 100-KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN, SOFIA,BULGARIA   

I was wandering one morning from my hotel Sofia Hotel Balkan looking for a money changer that opens early in the morning and I saw this familiar Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant along Alexander Stamboliiski blvd. It was less than 10 minutes walk from my hotel so I decided to come back to have my lunch there.
I know that Kentucky Fried Chicken caters their chicken taste to the country they are situated in so I wanted to try how the Bulgarian KFC caters to the local customers.
I had a hard time at first communicating with the person taking the orders on the counter but it was good that they had a set menu that I could just point to.
Then the order taker asked me if I want it spicy or not. Wow I didn't know they also have spicy chicken here. So I ordered their Chicken fingers and it was that familiar Kentucky taste and it wasn't oily at all.

          5 Tips for Overseas Vacation Home Buying Success   
The dream of owning a vacation home in some sun-drenched overseas location is one the majority of us share, and because real estate proves itself time and again as a solid long term investment commodity, many more people are committing to purchasing real estate abroad as an investment that they and their family can also enjoy and benefit from.

When buying a vacation home abroad there are a number of key considerations to bear in mind to avoid some of the traps and pitfalls sometimes associated with buying long distance and in an unfamiliar country. With these 5 tips for overseas vacation home buying success you can quickly cut a swathe through the research process and move towards securing the dream swiftly and securely.

Tip One – Learn the Rules and Regulations

Different countries have different rules relating to the right or otherwise of foreign citizens to own the freehold title to immovable property. Some widely publicised destinations don't allow foreigners to directly own the land on which their property sits (Bulgaria) or more than one property (Cyprus) for example, and some countries are less economically or politically stable than your own which can mean that real estate related rules and regulations may change in the future. Make sure you're comfortable with the workings of the country you're considering buying a vacation home in, and if in doubt seek professional advice about that country and the ambitions you hold for owning a holiday home in it.

Tip Two - Good Investment/Bad Investment

If you're buying a vacation home with a hope that it will go up in value and be not only a family retreat but a great asset, know that real estate, just like any investment commodity, can go down in value as well as up. Furthermore not all countries have a real estate economy the same as the one in your own country – a little research would be wise into the historic nature of the property market in your country of choice as well as predictions for its future. While such data is not a direct indication of how well your investment will perform it will arm you with more data to hopefully make your decisions easier.

Tip Three - Title Deeds and Legalities

Legal systems and the title deed registration process differ from country to country therefore know your legal rights and try and find out about the essential searches, surveys and title deed checks that need to be conducted before you should commit to buying your overseas vacation home. Never enter into any form of contractual agreement without the direct assistance of an independent lawyer and never accept someone's word that a vacation home has its permissions and title deeds valid and up to date. Insist on seeing and checking all important facts and data before signing on the dotted line.

Tip Four - Accessibility and Desirability

If you're thinking about making an income from your vacation home or even hoping to holiday in it yourself regularly, one of the most important factors to bear in mind is the accessibility or otherwise of your vacation home. If your real estate is difficult to reach, with many miles to traverse and complicated and expensive plane journeys to plan, then it will just become a less desirable commodity over time. While a vacation involves getting away from it all and escaping every day life, a vacation destination and home should be easy and affordable to reach.

Tip Five - Enlisting Assistance

Consider enlisting the help of a reputable real estate agent, an independent lawyer and if you want to make money from your vacation home, a property management service. Such professionals can save you time, effort and money and they can make the whole process of buying and owning a vacation home that much simpler. Make sure you take references, examine credentials and see qualifications before employing anyone to assist you however, and if at all possible seek recommendations because anyone who does a good job will always get good press!

          The Interior of the Russian Monastery on Mount Athos (K. Leontiev)   
[Previous post: http://bit.ly/2snrN4c]

It may well be that I don’t have good taste and that I don’t understand much about art, but this was my impression and I share it most sincerely with my readers.

This beautiful iconostas is a gift from the late Abbot, Antonij Bochkov (a former merchant), who spent his last years as a monk near Moscow, at the Monastery of Nikolo-Ugreshkij [1].

Apart from the iconostas, there’s not much in the empty, spacious chapel of the Pokrov (Protecting Veil) which makes an impression in terms of the feast or ceremony (I don’t, of course, mean the service itself: the scrupulous order of the monks on the Holy Mountain is exemplary and I haven’t seen anything like it either in the churches of Moscow or in the hermitage of Optina, and not, of course among the Greek and Bulgarians, who always celebrate in a sort of more ‘daring’ way and less carefully than we Russians do).

The atmosphere is completely different from that of the katholiko (main church). At this time the main church had been given over to the Greeks, who lived in the lower part of the monastery, near the sea, since they were the oldest members of the monastery[2]. This church is built in the usual Athonite style, which is like our own ancient churches in Moscow. It’s tall, magnificent, well-decorated with a severe aspect, dark, but shining with gold. The iconostas goes on for ever. Above the centre of the church is the round cupola, which isn’t spacious and tilted, as in the Church of Holy Wisdom [Ayia Sophia] in Constantinople, but rests on a tall tower as in Saint Isaakios’[3].

In Athonite churches, this central tower, the gigantic cylinder which departs to the heavens, above the head of the pilgrim, isn’t empty, as is usually the case with us… it’s full of light. Apart from the valuable, heavy chandelier, there’s the ‘choir’ around it which also has candles. It’s an enormous, silver circle and at feasts the candles create a broad crown around the lights of the candelabra, which rise above it in the form of a pyramid. Between the lights of the candelabra and those of the circle above your head, there’s also individual lamps and candles, as well as ostrich eggs on silver chains. The ‘choir’, too, is decorated with these large, white, pendant eggs.

Apart from this, our Eastern co-religionists have the custom at great feasts of using a long tool to bring the candelabra, the ‘choir’ and everything else hanging under the cupola into cyclical motion. All the lights from lamps and candles, all the silver and gold, all the big eggs, hard as stone, all of these are blindingly white, shimmering, sparkling, moving above you, as if they’re celebrating soundlessly together with the people, in a gentle, but ceaseless and formal dance…

Of course, we’re not used to eastern chant and this lack of familiarity makes it sound unpleasant and harsh. But when the choir of singers is good, as is the case with the Greeks at the Russian monastery, then we can’t say that this chanting has no power, nor that it brings a strange, most unusual surprise… Of course, the service at this Vespers would have been perfect had they, to the rather brooding and magnificent beauty of the ponderous church, to the vibrant luxury of the vestments with their bright colours, to the reading of the Word of God in various languages, to that simple and mysterious dance of the lights within the deep darkness of the cupola, been able to add the accompaniment of choice Russian music to this beautiful, harmonious Greek language…

There’s no perfection here on earth, however… not even in the highest manifestations of beauty. In any case, the ‘tone’ in which the Greeks and Bulgarians sing ‘Christ has risen’- which doesn’t resemble ours- is quite pleasant. The melody’s less quick and sprightly than ours: it’s slower and even somehow more melancholic. But if you live for any length of time in the East, you soon get used to it, as if it’s your own, even from your homeland…

But now the deacon’s voice rings out:

‘And let us pray that we may hear the Holy Gospel of the Lord our God’.

Then:

‘Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Saint John’.

‘Let us attend’, replies the Russian archimandrite Makarij in Greek.

This first Gospel is read in Greek by the centenarian Abbot Gerasimos himself, seated next to the Royal Doors because of weakness. He was a forty-year old priest back in the time of Catherine the Great.

‘When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week…’ and so on, ‘Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you”’.

(to be continued)
 
[1] One of the many tantalizing statements by Leontiev. We owe him the courtesy of agreeing that this is his best understanding of the situation. Someone must have told him so and he’s recorded it. But in what sense were the Greeks ‘the oldest members’ and how did this affect where they lived? Were they, in some way, not ‘the oldest’ but ‘the most senior’? Even this doesn’t help much, because, as testimony to the fact that Orthodoxy is not ethnocentric, the eminent Greek historian, Apostolos Vakalopoulos records that: ‘At the end of the 15th century, the Russian pilgrim Isaiah ... says that nearly half the monasteries are Slav or Albanian. As Serbian, he quotes Doheiariou, Grigoriou, Ayiou Pavlou, a monastery near Ayiou Pavlou dedicated to St. John the Theologian (obviously Dionysiou), and Hilandar. Panteleïmon is Russian, Simonopetra is Bulgarian, and Karakallou and Filotheou are Albanian’. WJL [2] The Nikolo-Ugreshkij Monastery is in the region of Moscow and was founded in 1380 by the Grand Prince Dimitri Donskoj on the site where the wonder-working icon of Saint Nicholas had appeared to him. [3] Saint Isaakios is the cathedral church of Saint Petersburg

          Does my Activity put me at Risk?   
Q: Essentially, on Thursday/Friday June 1st/2nd, I was walking back to my hotel room in Sofia, Bulgaria, somewhat inebriated, when I was stopped by a prostitute who invited me back to her apartment, and I rather foolishly agreed. She gave me a protected blowjob, and then I had sex with her doggystyle, and ended in missionary. While I was having sex with her doggystyle, she kept two fingers on my penis over the condom - I assume either to prevent me from penetrating her too deeply, or to ensure that...

A: Hey there -- It looks like you've been reading this column regularly! I'm saying that because you've pretty much already responded to yourself with answers I would have given. Your risk of acquiring HIV are pretty much zero for all the reasons you stated: You don't know if she is living with detectable levels of HIV, the condom did not break, and even if these two things weren't true the risk of acquiring HIV from one experience as the insertive partner (or "top") are less than 1%.

          Comment on Soviet PSM Pistol History: Really a KGB Assassination Gun? by eon   
Not to mention that KGB "wet affairs" officers; 1. Almost never did the job themselves (having learned their lesson from the Stashynsky affair); 2. Were careful to hire their hitters from groups with as little connection to Moscow as possible, and ideally having a previously-existing grudge against the target (Ex; the Gray wolves in the attempt to murder Pope John Paul II); 3. Worked through third parties whenever they could (hence the Bulgarian connection in the attempt on the Pope); 4. And were careful never to supply the actual hitter with any weapon that could be traced back to KGB (Mehmet Ali Ağca gun used a 9mm FN P-35; https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/popegun.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=664&h=441&crop=1 ) Real "spy assassinations" are very different from the way they are portrayed in books and movies. As one retired CIA field officer of my acquaintance once observed, "anyone who did it like they show in the movies wouldn't make it to the airport before the local cops nabbed him". And a KGB officer dolled up like 007 with all sorts of gadgets and special guns would never get in-country to begin with. cheers eon

          Getting to Macedonia   

Thessaloniki/Skopje – So close, and still so far away. Try getting to the Macedonian capital Skopje these days from Thessaloniki,. the capital of Greek Macedonia. I did it, today, and it was a classical travellers´ hassle.

 

Greece is undergoing a serious crisis these days. Therefore, the Greek railways suspended all international train departures to Macedonia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Turkey at the beginning of this year. I read about it, and foolish as I am, I expected there there would be some sort of alternative transport. A bus, for example. But no way. The Greek railways does not offer any other transport. They do not care either. Nor does KTEL, the Greek state bus company.

 

So if you want to get from Greek Macedonia to Macedonian Macedonia, you´re on yuor own. Good luck! Here`s my travel advice: first take a local bus to Polikastro in Northern Greece. Then take a taxi to the Greek-Macedonian border. Walk across the border. Take a taxi on the Macedonian side to Gevgelija. And then, finally, take a stone-age train to Skopje. All in all, the 260 kilometers will cost something like 40 Euros this way. The trip takes roughly seven hours. Extra bonus: you will immediately have a pretty good impression about the state of unification between the two Macedonias......

 


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

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

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

          Mac: Raonic, Wawrinka Can Win Wimbledon   
Hall of Famer believes one of Big 4 will win Wimbledon, but if they falter he picks five players who can prevail.
The Big 4—Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic—have combined to win 14 consecutive Wimbledon crowns.

Hall of Famer John McEnroe believes one of the Big 4 will win Wimbledon next month.

Watch: Wimbledon Tweets of the Week

If they should falter, McEnroe points to two men—2016 Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic and reigning US Open champion Stan Wawrinka—as most likely to break through and win the grass-court Grand Slam.

In a conference call with the media to promote ESPN’s Wimbledon coverage, which starts Monday, McEnroe, who briefly joined Raonic’s coaching team during grass-court season last year, said the big-serving Canadian can win his first major at SW19.

“Having worked with Milos last year, him getting to the finals, one of the reasons I worked with him was I believed he could win it,” McEnroe told the media. “I would say he would be high up on the list of one of the most likely to win it.

"Wawrinka obviously has three majors. Anyone that's got three majors, three different ones, would have a career Grand Slam if he won Wimbledon, you've got to take seriously. Although I do feel that Stan struggles with his movement more on grass than he does, and his confidence, more than on any other surface.”

Former Wimbledon semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov, Rome champion Alexander Zverev and 2014 Wimbledon quarterfinalist Nick Kyrgios are other dark horses McEnroe favors. Though the three-time former Wimbledon winner questions the Bulgarian’s mental strength, suggests Zverev lacks the major experience to win Wimbledon this year and questions Kyrgios’ “lack of effort at times.”

“I've seen Dimitrov play the best match of his life in Australia, losing in the fifth (set) to Nadal,” McEnroe said. “I thought, Okay, he's back to where he was when he was in the semis. Looked like he was going to win some majors. Then he's tailed off again. I think his game can translate to grass better than any other surface. He wouldn't totally shock me, even though I don't feel like he seems to have mentally found that next gear in order to deal with these guys.

“After that, I'm hoping Zverev is the guy in a year or two. I think he will be, but I don't think he's ready to win it yet. Kyrgios would be the most talented guy. I don't know what's going on with him. I know I get frustrated with his lack of effort at times. The talent is enough to win multiple majors. The raw tennis talent. But you have to combine everything.”

Trump exhorta a que se derogue Obamacare, mientras Congreso se aproxima a entrar en receso

El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, instó a los congresistas republicanos hoy a derogar la Ley de Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio, conocida como “Obamacare”, a pesar de que los senadores comenzaron a irse de Washington DC para el receso del 4 de julio y no tienen planes de votar el proyecto de ley de salud que la reemplazaría. Trump tuiteó esta mañana: “Si los senadores republicanos no pueden aprobar la ley en la que están trabajando, deberían DEROGAR de inmediato, y REEMPLAZAR más tarde”. El líder de la mayoría del Senado, Mitch McConnell, canceló una votación planificada del proyecto de ley de salud en el Senado, después de que algunos miembros de su partido se resistieran a votarlo luego de que el informe de la Oficina de Presupuesto del Congreso concluyera que el proyecto de ley de salud dejaría a 22 millones de estadounidenses sin seguro de salud. Otros republicanos afirmaron que se opondrían al proyecto de ley del Senado porque no es lo suficientemente conservador.

Trump genera indignación y acusaciones de sexismo tras atacar en Twitter a presentadores de MSNBC

En Washington DC, el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, generó indignación incluso entre miembros del Partido Republicano el jueves, después de haber atacado a los presentadores de televisión Joe Scarborough y Mika Brzezinski, del programa Morning Joe, de MSNBC. Trump publicó en Twitter: “Me enteré de que el programa Morning Joe, que tiene unos bajos índices de audiencia, habla mal de mí (dejé de mirarlo). No entiendo por qué la loca de Mika, de bajo coeficiente intelectual, junto con el psicótico de Joe, vinieron a Mar-a-Lago durante tres noches seguidas cerca de fin de año e insistieron en reunirse conmigo. Ella estaba sangrando profusamente por un estiramiento facial. ¡Les dije que no!”.

Mika Brzezinski respondió a las afirmaciones de Trump esta mañana en MSNBC.

Mika Brzezinski: “Me preocupa por el país. Sé que Richard Haas nos apoya. [Trump] Parece tener un ego frágil, impetuoso, infantil, que hemos visto una y otra vez, especialmente con las mujeres. Parece que no pudiera controlarse”.

En un artículo titulado “Donald Trump no está bien” publicado hoy en el periódico The Washington Post, Brzezinski y Scarborough dieron a entender que Donald Trump no está bien, y agregaron: “Los líderes es Estados Unidos y sus aliados se están preguntando una vez más si este hombre es idóneo para ser presidente”. Los tuits de Trump generaron reacciones en todo el espectro político, incluida la congresista Lynn Jenkins, de Kansas, que tuiteó: “Esto no está bien. Como mujer que está en la política a menudo recibo críticas por mi apariencia. Deberíamos trabajar para empoderar a las mujeres”. En Washington, la Casa Blanca no se disculpó por los comentarios.

La subsecretaria de prensa de la Casa Blanca, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, declaró: “Este es un presidente que combate el fuego con fuego, y sin duda no se dejará acosar por los medios liberales y las élites liberales de los medios de comunicación, ni de Hollywood, ni de ningún otro ámbito”.

Interacción de Trump con periodista irlandesa evoca su historial de comentarios sexistas

El ataque de Donald Trump a Mika Brzezinski tuvo lugar un día después de que el presidente interrumpiera una llamada para felicitar al nuevo primer ministro de Irlanda por su victoria electoral para interactuar con una periodista irlandesa.

Presidente Donald Trump: “Tenemos mucha prensa de Irlanda que nos está mirando. Se están yendo ahora de la sala. ¿De dónde eres? Vamos, ven, acércate. ¿De dónde eres? Hay muchas periodistas irlandesas hermosas aquí. ¿De dónde eres?

Caitríona Perry: “Soy de RTE”.

Presidente Donald Trump: “RTE, qué bien”.

Caitríona Perry: “El primer ministro sabe quién soy. Caitríona Perry”.

Presidente Donald Trump: “Caitríona Perry. Tiene una bella sonrisa, así que me imagino que lo trata bien”.

Más tarde, Caitríona Perry recordó el incidente como “extraño”. Trump tiene antecedentes de comentarios sexistas. En un video filtrado de Access Hollywood de 2005, Trump es sorprendido con el micrófono encendido cuando alardea sobre cómo acosa sexualmente a mujeres. Durante un debate presidencial de 2015, la presentadora de Fox News Megyn Kelly le preguntó a Trump acerca de su historial de comentarios sexistas.

Megyn Kelly: “[…] Ha llamado “gordas cerdas”, “perras”, “babosas” y “animal desagradable” a mujeres que no le gustan. En su cuenta de Twitter hay varias…

Donald Trump: “Solo a Rosie O’Donnell”.

Megyn Kelly: “No, no solo a ella. En su cuenta de Twitter…”

Donald Trump: “Gracias”.

Megyn Kelly: “Que quede claro, fueron muchas más mujeres que Rosie O’Donnell”.

Donald Trump: “Sí, seguramente”.

Las preguntas de Megyn Kelly llevaron a que Trump la atacara durante la campaña electoral. En agosto de 2015 Trump había hecho otra referencia a las mujeres y la sangre, similar a la del jueves sobre Mika Brzezinski.

Donald Trump: “Sale y comienza a hacerme todo tipo de preguntas absurdas. Y se notaba que estaba sangrando hasta por los ojos, estaba sangrando por todas partes”.

Al menos 13 mujeres han acusado a Trump de realizar insinuaciones sexuales no deseadas.

The Wall Street Journal: investigador republicano intentó obtener correos electrónicos de Clinton mediante hackers rusos

El periódico The Wall Street Journal informó el jueves que el ahora fallecido investigador republicano Peter W. Smith, que estaba vinculado con el asesor de seguridad nacional destituido Michael Flynn, contactó a hackers en medio de la campaña electoral de 2016, con la esperanza de que tuvieran correos electrónicos del servidor personal de Hillary Clinton. Según el periódico, Smith estableció explícitamente sus vínculos con Flynn en sus correos electrónicos para contratar al hacker. En un correo electrónico, Smith dijo que el hijo de Flynn, Michael G. Flynn, estaba ayudando en el plan. Trump y su gobierno han afirmado reiteradas veces que no hay pruebas de una conspiración entre agentes rusos y colaboradores de la campaña de Donald Trump.

ONU: si no se reducen drásticamente las emisiones, para 2020 habrá una catástrofe climática

La Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) advierte que a la humanidad le quedan tres años para reducir drásticamente las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, o afrontará un mundo inhabitable para muchas personas. La revista Nature publicó la advertencia de seis expertos en clima. Los expertos afirman que si no se adoptan medidas urgentes para 2020, la temperatura promedio de la Tierra aumentará más del límite máximo de 2 grados Celsius fijado en el Acuerdo de París sobre cambio climático.

Canciller alemana afirma que próxima Cumbre del G20 se centrará en el cambio climático

Esa advertencia se produjo al tiempo que la canciller alemana, Angela Merkel, afirmó que la cumbre del G20 que se celebrará este año en Hamburgo se centrará en el cambio climático.

La canciller Angela Merkel dijo: “La Unión Europea defiende plenamente el compromiso de París y pondremos el acuerdo en práctica en forma rápida y decisiva. Además, debido a la decisión de Estados Unidos de América de retirarse del Acuerdo de París sobre el cambio climático, estamos más decididos a lograr que el acuerdo sea exitoso”.

La Casa Blanca dijo que el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, se reunirá la semana próxima con su par de Rusia, Vladimir Putin, al margen de la Cumbre del G20.

Manifestantes de Tacoma, Washington protestan contra planta de gas natural licuado

Mientras tanto, en Tacoma, en el estado de Washington, miembros de la tribu puyallup y sus aliados realizaron una protesta el jueves en el sitio de construcción de una planta de gas natural licuado. La protesta se organizó antes de la comparecencia ante un tribunal, programada para el 14 de julio, de seis protectores del agua que se encadenaron al equipo de construcción del sitio en mayo, en un intento de detener el proyecto, que manejaría unos 30 millones de litros de gas licuado obtenidos por el método de fractura hidráulica, o fracking, cerca de un barrio residencial.

Ejército iraquí declara victoria sobre el autoproclamado Califato Islámico en Mosul

El ejército iraquí declaró el jueves el fin del autoproclamado Califato Islámico, debido a que la coalición respaldada por Estados Unidos capturó de manos del autodenominado Estado Islámico (ISIS) las ruinas de la mezquita de Grand al-Nuri en Mosul. La mezquita era el sitio donde el líder del ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, declaró el califato en 2014. Su captura se produce al tiempo que los medios de comunicación iraníes informan que Baghdadi está “definitivamente muerto”. Esto se produce después de que el mes pasado se hicieran públicos informes rusos que sostenían que Baghdadi había muerto en un ataque aéreo ruso en Siria. Mientras tanto, continúan los intensos combates en algunas partes de Mosul, donde decenas de miles de personas siguen atrapadas en la Ciudad Vieja y cuentan con poco acceso a alimentos, agua y medicamentos. El observatorio periodístico Airwars informa que al menos 80 civiles murieron el jueves cuando los ataques de artillería y los bombardeos aéreos azotaron sus casas en los alrededores de la mezquita de Grand al-Nuri. También hubo informes de que una familia de cinco integrantes fue asesinada y de que un niño de cuatro años resultó gravemente herido en un ataque aéreo realizado el martes por la coalición encabezada por Estados Unidos.

Francia: Conductor arrestado tras intento de atropellar a fieles musulmanes

En Francia, un hombre armenio de 43 años de edad fue arrestado el jueves tras intentar atropellar con su vehículo todoterreno a una multitud que se encontraba frente a una mezquita. Los testigos afirman que el conductor se vio frustrado en sus intentos de matar a los musulmanes sólo porque su vehículo chocó con las barreras que fueron colocadas para proteger la mezquita.

Hong Kong: Arrestan a manifestantes antes de la visita del presidente chino, Xi Jinping

En Hong Kong, el presidente chino, Xi Jinping, inspeccionó hoy a miles de soldados del Ejército Popular de Liberación, en el mayor desfile militar de la ciudad desde que Reino Unido entregó el control del territorio, en 1997. La visita del presidente Xi se produjo en medio de intensas medidas de seguridad y después de que la policía arrestara a manifestantes en favor de la democracia que reclaman una mayor autonomía en Hong Kong bajo la política de “Un país, dos sistemas”. Entre los detenidos estaba Joshua Wong, quien hace tres años ayudó a dirigir protestas masivas para exigir una mayor libertad política. Esta es la legisladora y activista de Hong Kong Claudia Mo.

Claudia Mo declaró: “Necesitamos que este líder chino sepa que la promesa de ‘Un país, dos sistemas’ ha sido una farsa, un fraude y un engaño. Hay interferencia permanente de Beijing en el desarrollo de Hong Kong, especialmente en el desarrollo político. Estamos muy, muy resentidos por no tener una verdadera democracia”.

Acusan de agresión sexual en Australia a un alto funcionario del Vaticano

En el Vaticano, un cardenal y consejero principal del papa Francisco regresará a Australia para enfrentar cargos de agresión sexual. El cardenal George Pell es el tercer funcionario de mayor rango en la Iglesia Católica Romana. En declaraciones desde el Vaticano, el cardenal Pell dijo que el papa Francisco le concedió licencia para regresar a Australia para defenderse.

El cardenal George Pell enunció: “Estoy deseando tener finalmente mi día en el tribunal. Soy inocente de estos cargos, son falsos. La idea de abuso sexual me resulta totalmente aberrante”.

El cardenal Pell debe comparecer ante el tribunal el mes próximo. En 2014, el Vaticano admitió que cerca de 850 sacerdotes han sido destituidos y más de 2.500 fueron disciplinados, en un gran escándalo de abuso sexual que data de décadas atrás.

Cámara de Representantes en Estados Unidos aprueba proyectos de ley contra los inmigrantes

En más noticias de Estados Unidos, la Cámara de Representantes aprobó el jueves dos proyectos de ley de inmigración que fueron objeto de críticas por estar destinados a demonizar a los inmigrantes indocumentados. El primer proyecto de ley, conocido como “La Ley de Kate”, agrega penas a los inmigrantes deportados que vuelvan a ingresar a Estados Unidos. Fue aprobado en una votación de 257 contra 167, siguiendo en gran medida las líneas partidarias. Entre los que votaron en contra se encontraba Jerrold Nadler, representante demócrata de Nueva York.

Jerrold Nadler expresó: “Este proyecto de ley no es nada menos que propagación del miedo basado en el mito ampliamente desacreditado de que los inmigrantes cometen delitos a un ritmo más alto que los estadounidenses nacidos en el país, cuando en realidad sabemos que es todo lo contrario”.

El segundo proyecto de ley de la Cámara de Representantes aprobado el jueves recortaría subsidios federales de las “ciudades refugio” que limitan la cooperación con las autoridades de inmigración.

Diez fiscales generales republicanos amenazan con demandar al gobierno de Trump por el programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia

En otras noticias relacionadas con la inmigración, fiscales generales de diez estados afirmaron que van a presentar una demanda contra el gobierno del presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, a menos que ponga fin al programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA, por su sigla en inglés), que otorga protección legal a algunos jóvenes inmigrantes para vivir y trabajar en Estados Unidos. En una carta enviada el jueves al fiscal general de Estados Unidos, Jeff Sessions, Ken Paxton, de Texas, y otros nueve fiscales generales republicanos señalan que están preparados para impugnar en su totalidad el programa DACA en los tribunales, a menos que la Casa Blanca rescinda esa política.

La prohibición de viajar de Trump no permitirá el acceso de abuelos, primos y otros parientes

La prohibición del presidente Donald Trump al ingreso a Estados Unidos de refugiados y viajeros provenientes de seis países mayoritariamente musulmanes entró parcialmente en vigor el jueves por la noche. En virtud de un fallo, emitido por la Corte Suprema a principios de esta semana, que levantó la suspensión contra la prohibición, a las personas de Irán, Libia, Siria, Somalia, Sudán y Yemen que no tengan relaciones comerciales o familiares cercanas se les puede negar la visa y no permitirles entrar a Estados Unidos. El gobierno de Trump dijo que interpretará “familia cercana” como padres, hijos, hermanos y familia política cercana: suegros, nueras, yernos, padrastros e hijastros. Entre los excluidos se encuentran abuelos, nietos, tíos y primos. El Departamento de Estado declaró el jueves que permitirá viajar a las parejas prometidas de los países afectados, tras haber dicho inicialmente que también tendrían prohibido el ingreso.

Comisión electoral de Trump solicita datos sobre votantes estadounidenses y genera alarma

Una comisión electoral establecida por el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, solicitó a los cincuenta estados que entreguen información personal detallada sobre los votantes estadounidenses, en una medida que los defensores de los derechos civiles afirman que tiene como objetivo suprimir la participación electoral. La solicitud fue hecha por Kris Kobach, secretario de Estado de Kansas y vicepresidente de la Comisión Asesora Presidencial de Trump sobre Integridad Electoral. Kobach ejerció presión para impulsar las leyes más estrictas de identificación de votantes en el país y abogó por un requisito de “prueba de ciudadanía” a nivel estatal y federal. Al menos tres estados (California, Connecticut y Virginia) dijeron que se negarían a cumplir con la solicitud. En una declaración, el Comité de Abogados Defensores de los Derechos Civiles Bajo la Ley declaró: “Esta inquisición sin méritos le permitiría a una comisión equivocada y mal aconsejada tomar medidas para señalar y acosar a los votantes, y podría conducir a una purga de las listas de votantes”.

          Bachatología: una puesta en escena   

El reporte de un cuarto congreso mundial de baile de bachata realizado en España en febrero de 2015 (cuatro días en el Hotel Auditorium de Madrid), indica que asistieron interesados de 50 países de los cinco continentes. En la lista figuran concurrentes de territorios nórdicos, como Noruega y Dinamarca, y de Europa del Este, como Bulgaria y Eslovenia. Esos simples datos despiertan el interés del investigador acucioso. Hablan de la legitimación global de una música local, que debió romper barreras en su propio territorio de origen, mientras seducía audiencias populares en ciudades cosmopolitas como Nueva York, Barcelona o Berlín.

La explicación de ese fenómeno –musical y cultural– se atribuye a lo que, desde 2007, en un libro aún inconcluso, denominé bachatología, un concepto que utilizo para designar el hecho de pensar la bachata en el contexto de la cultura dominicana y del Caribe –y sus ramificaciones alrededor del mundo, tal como su impacto en Estados Unidos y Europa, a través de los emigrantes dominicanos.

El auge y la conversión de la bachata en una música identitaria dominicana fueron procesos paralelos y simultáneos al desarraigo de sus tierras de una alta proporción de campesinos minifundistas, convertidos en obreros agrícolas, y su paso, a través de la emigración interna, a la condición de proletario citadino -o bien de marginado urbano, por medio del chiripeo, un término usado en la isla para designar la condición de subempleado informal: alguien sin trabajo fijo y de ingresos inestables, cuya vida se basa en estrategias de sobrevivencia. Deborah Pacini Hernández, pionera en el estudio académico del género musical, aborda muy bien el tema en Bachata: a social history of a dominican popular music (1995).

En República Dominicana, la bachata fue el componente sonoro principal del desarrollo del capitalismo rural en la segunda mitad del siglo XX; el desplazamiento de campesinos de sus tierras, conllevó su traslado a las ciudades; siguiendo al sociólogo Wilfredo Lozano, la pobreza se urbanizó. Con ella, en las márgenes de las ciudades, estaba la bachata, pasando a formar parte del nuevo imaginario urbano, primero barrial y luego, incluso, transnacional, como evidencian los libros de Julie Sellers: Bachata and dominican identity (2014) y Bachateros modernos (2017).

La cultura bachatera tuvo su espacio citacino en el barrio, hábitat de los trabajadores, y su nicho especial en el colmado, equivalente urbano de la pulpería rural. Como agentes importantes de circulación tuvo a los guagüeros de pueblo, que transportaban de la ciudad al campo y viceversa, y los chóferes del concho en Santo Domingo y Santiago de los Caballeros. El colmado suplantó como espacio de primacía musical a la gallera y la enramada, como las ciudades suplantaron en importancia a los campos. Fue allí, en la escena urbana, donde la bachata, finalmente, logró su legitimación por el mainstream, la mentalidad predominante, en los dos últimos decenios del siglo XX.

Como establecí en La pasión danzaria (2002), el trayecto hacia esa legitimidad tuvo tres jalones importantes. Primero, la pegada en 1983 de la bachata “Pena” de uno de los pioneros, Luis Segura, quien, por primera vez, abrió las puertas de los centros cerveceros –que habían tomado apogeo en los barrios populares, para atender, además de los cadenuses que bajaban del Norte a celebrar la Navidad, a un depauperado público que vio disminuir su capacidad de consumo y cayó en un “bulevar de los sueños rotos”, como diría Joaquín Sabina; ese quiebre de quimeras es lo que traza Pedro Valdez en la novela Bachata del ángel caído.

El segundo impulso, a partir de 1984, fue el surgimiento, a raíz del experimental álbum Luis Dias amargao –grabado en casete por ese innovador artista–, de la corriente denominada tecno-amargue, a la que llamé neo-bachata, y a la cual se adscribieron, posteriormente y por distintas vías, Sonia Silvestre, Juan Luis Guerra y Víctor Víctor, escuela que le inyectó al género sofisticación musical y literaria, y cuyos mejores resultados se cosecharon en los años 90, siendo su cúspide discográfica Bachata Rosa, de Guerra. El tercero fue la popularidad alcanzada por “Voy pa’ llá”, de Antony Santos, que se convirtió en un verdadero ciclón bachatero discográfico, lo que quiere decir que superó todos los récord de los bachateros tradicionales, convirtiéndose en un fenómeno masivo.

La conversión de la bachata en música legítima ocurrió a la par con la depauperación de las capas medias urbanas durante la llamada Década Perdida (así denominada por los organismos económicos de la región), la industrialización de zonas francas, el surgimiento de un nuevo estamento social denominado los dominican yorks y su efecto de demostración –especialmente para Navidad y Año Nuevo–, fenómenos que, en conjunto, atrajeron hacia la bachata a un público más amplio, algo también estudiado por la profesora Sellers. Así, se pudo rebasar la ambivalencia del dominicano hacia la bachata, durante la fase de transición hacia su legitimación como identidad emergente de la nueva dominicanidad urbana y transnacional (y, tendencialmente, bilingüe, al menos en Estados Unidos).

Con esos cambios, se puede entender que la identidad es un terreno de disputa: lo moderno pugna con lo tradicional, lo letrado con lo iletrado, lo elitista con lo popular, para quedarme en el terreno de las dicotomías propias de la cultura bachatera, empapada de series de relaciones conflictivas.

Desde la bachata se puede exponer toda una teoría sobre las ideas del dominicano acerca de la conflictividad intrínseca al ser humano: los conflictos del amor, la intriga, la infidelidad y la traición, los conflictos interiores y exteriores, las disputas entre lo masculino y lo femenino, con la particularidad –en ese caso- de que, en general, lo femenino se impone: la mujer suele salir victoriosa por la victimización masculina, un efecto inmanente en la bachata, derivado de uno de sus rasgos distintivos, que es la inversión de la realidad –en particular, de los roles de género–, para convertirla en fantasía. Queda clara la herencia que el movimiento romántico legó a la bachata.

Ese legado del romanticismo quedó impregnado en la temática, las letras y el estilo interpretativo que caracterizan la cultura bachatera: cantar el desengaño, el desamor, los lamentos de la opresión o la infelicidad humana –como Mélida Rodríguez en su emblemática canción “La sufrida”–; canto de amargue, con voz temblorosa, poseído por el sentimiento, lleno de tristeza y dolor –incluida una cuota de sado-masoquismo. Como el bolero y la telenovela, la balada y el tango, la bachata es un melodrama, inundado de lloros y lágrimas. La bachata es lacrimógena por naturaleza.

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

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

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

          Radikaa and Simran on board for Vikram's 'Dhruva Natchathiram'   
Yesteryear actresses Simran and Radikaa are on board for Chiyaan Vikram’s Dhruva Natchathiram.

The shoot of the film is currently happening in Bulgaria. “Besides Bulgaria, director Gautham is planning to shoot an action sequence across three countries ( Abu Dhabi, Turkey, and Slovenia) in twenty two days”, said a source close to the team.

Another major update is that the film’s cinematographer Santhana Krishnan has been replaced by Manoj Paramahamsa, who worked with Gautham Menon in Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya. Along with Simran and Radikaa, other actors who have recently joined the team are Parthiepan, Divyadharshini, Vamsi, Sathish, and Maya.

The film also has Aishwarya Rajesh and Ritu Varma playing pivotal characters. Produced by Gautham’s Ondraga Entertainment, Harris Jayaraj is composing the music for the film.


          Power Rangers: The Adventures of Seven Free-Spirited Liquor Brand Ambassadors

[media-credit id=6585 align="alignright" width="398"][/media-credit] From left:
Trevor Schneider, Charlotte Voisey, Sebastien Derbomez and Mark Stoddard[/caption]

Brand ambassadors: How they just seem to swoop in out of the blue, drop the knowledge hammer at festivals, parties and tasting events, and then fly off into the sunset, leaving a social media trail of wittily hashtagged adventures in their wake. Best gig ever, right? But have you ever pondered the origin stories of these wild-mannered spirituous superheroes? We rounded up some William Grant & Sons brand ambassadors to find out exactly how they acquired their superpowers.

Trevor Schneider, Mr. Reyka Vodka

If it looks like Reyka Vodka’s U.S. ambassador is having serious fun spreading the gospel of Icelandic volcanic-rock-filtered spirits, that’s probably because he is. But Schneider’s affable, high-energy manner and confident ease addressing a crowd are not accidental. The former Manhattanite routinely calls upon his previous double life as a bartender and screen actor with late-night talk show host aspirations to build rapport with any audience. Over time, his paths merged: “[Hospitality] became more of a love and became the real passion because the bar became my stage,” he says, and those acting chops have come in handy. “Ninety percent of my job has to do with interaction—the way I dress, the way I carry myself, the way I interact with people, the way I tell the story of Reyka, the way I get behind the bar and make cocktails. Pretty much the last 10 years of my experience is embodied every day in my job.” Still, don’t let Schneider’s poise and polish fool you: he can and often does let his hair down.

Mark Stoddard, Mr. Hendrick’s Gin

Curiosity comes with the job at Hendrick’s Gin. The delightful English cucumber- and Bulgarian rose-forward gin embodies the spirit of exploration, aligning its brand with all that is “unusual,” “peculiar” and “wondrous.” As ambassador to the Western U.S., a tweedy and ginger Stoddard has access to toys such as the Hendrick’s Negroni Machine (with mechanical arms that prepare drinks at the pull of a lever) and hands out tiny cocktail field guides. But Stoddard’s adventurous streak dates back to his days studying international relations, and aspiring to join the State Department, CIA or foreign service. The student and bartender (later, a certified sommelier and bar owner) routinely saw his two worlds collide. “I was studying world history, imperialism and colonialism, but at the same time, I started to dive a little bit deeper into the history of alcohol. And I saw a lot of parallels,” Stoddard says. “Throughout human civilization—doesn’t matter if we’re going back to Egypt or into recent times—humans have had a very deep relationship with alcohol. It could’ve been medicinal, religious, ceremonial or recreational.” A keen observer and storyteller, Stoddard uses his grasp of world history and alcohol history to connect with consumers and industry members. “I think I made the right choice. [The other path] would’ve been a lot more bureaucratic paper pushing, and the parties that we throw as liquor ambassadors are much more fun.”

Sebastien Derbomez, Mr. Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Scotch is a complex spirit that warrants ample explanation—which can sometimes knock the wind out of a good party. Therefore, repping for the mixable, youthful, social side of blended malt Scotch whisky is Derbomez, a charming and polite Frenchman by way of the U.K., Australia and U.S. with an accent that attests to his travels. Graduating with a degree in mathematics and electrical engineering, the man known as Seb became a schoolteacher and therefore is well equipped to help consumers and bartenders monkey around with his product, named in tribute to history’s maltmen, who turned malting barley by hand with a heavy iron implement. Derbomez is every bit the vivacious party animal, often outfitted head to toe in monkey-logo’d gear (even on the slopes!), but he is still very much a teacher. Albeit a cool one: “Enjoy your whiskey the way you want it—we just want you to have fun. Play with your whiskey. Forget about the stuffy rules.”

Charlotte Voisey, Madame Director

For every team of operatives, there must be a leader—the M to James Bond, the Colonel Nick Fury to The Avengers. As director of brand advocacy for William Grant & Sons USA, Voisey represents the entirety of the portfolio, mentoring and managing its 25 ambassadors, and she educates consumers and beverage professionals through live events as well as her online show, The Perfect Pour. But before joining the team in 2006 as the first Hendrick’s Gin ambassador, Voisey was a student of international hospitality management, which took her to London, Spain, Argentina and back, working in restaurant and bar operations. “It’s quite a normal path these days for a bartender to go into brand ambassador work because of the skill sets needed. But I find that I draw upon my bartender experience for a different reason than the most obvious, and that is the idea of multitasking, keeping calm and being everything to everyone,” Voisey says. The subsequent years spent in the ranks of the team she now leads means that Voisey can instantly connect with her colleagues while maintaining a bird’s-eye view of the overall mission. “Mostly it’s advice. They are going through the steps of their career, steps that I already went through. So it might be advice on how to handle certain situations, inspiration about how to break through the clutter and make a name for themselves, or they’ve seen what I’ve done but they’re not quite sure how I got there—also just morale and support. That’s not necessarily what they ask me for, but it’s definitely what I see that they need and, in the perfect situation, could provide for them.”

[caption id="attachment_153655" align="alignright" width="370"] Ashley Marsh[/caption]

Ashley Marsh, Ms. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

Cars, tattoos, booze—that’s the aesthetic of the Sailor Jerry brand, but also of its San Diego-based ambassador, Ashley Marsh. Degrees in photography and art history couldn’t quite match the excitement and allure of the spirits business, which attracted Marsh early on and quickly led to work in experiential marketing, promo team management and eventually large-scale tours including Comic-Con and auto shows. A chance meeting in a bar is what led Marsh to take up the Sailor Jerry mission; now six years in, her territory stretches from Milwaukee to Hawaii and all the way up to Alaska, and represents some 75 percent of the world’s consumption of the spiced rum. And perhaps no one is more suited to it than Marsh: “I was raised on stock cars, motorcycles, bike weeks and tattoos,” she says. “Living in San Diego, we like fast cars and motorcycles and just doing what we want. Respecting others, but doing what we want—that's everything that the Sailor Jerry brand stands for.”

[caption id="attachment_153654" align="alignleft" width="336"] Jennifer Wren[/caption]

Jennifer Wren, Ms. Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch

Addressing the more serious side of Scotch takes serious presence, which is the only way to describe the arresting charisma of Jennifer Wren, Glenfiddich ambassador for the western third of the U.S. Commanding the room with a potent cocktail of charm and authority, Wren calls upon her background as a trained stage actor to convey knowledge and a personal connection to everyone attending her seminars, tastings or pairing dinners. Initially a spokesmodel by day, Wren handed out samples of first Champagne and later single malt whisky and sparkled in her presentation. She used her personal time to dive deeply inter her new category and took up the Glenfiddich mantle two years ago. “What a lot of people don't realize [about theater] is, it looks flawless from the audience, but backstage is chaos. Then the lights go up and you have to have a fearlessness,” Wren says. “So for me [this job is] that fine combination of weaving a tale in front of an audience, but fearlessly being able to drop down in any city, bar, convention center or setting, and never be afraid to share that story and be present in that space.”

 

[caption id="attachment_153704" align="alignright" width="346"] Vance Henderson[/caption]

Vance Henderson, Mr. Drambuie

How do you breath new life into a venerable liqueur brand? You put it in the hands of someone like Henderson. Drambuie’s D.C.-based U.S. ambassador has the kind of unique skillset needed to explain why this heather-honey-kissed Scotch-based liqueur from the late 1800s is still relevant. After graduating with a dual degree in education and radio, TV and film production, and with minors in African studies and theater, Henderson did a complete 180, as bartending swept him into restaurant management, catering and eventually having his own underground supper club. So it’s no wonder that Henderson is able to bridge the gap between the Rat Pack-era Rusty Nail-drinkers and the millennial marketplace.  “Each ambassador kind of fits the brand they represent, and the brand kind of fits them,” he says. “Each person has to have their own flair and soul and character that complements and gives life to the brand they represent.” Henderson’s own flair would be for showcasing the soave, modern and social aspects of what he calls a “super classic” and a “living liquid legend,” doing so with a natural swagger and impeccable style. “Literally everything that I’ve done—whether it was the bar, catering company, the supper club—they have all shaped me for this position. It encompasses event planning, training, organization, marketing, acting, working with people, scouting venues… All of those, wrapped into one job, fulfill this need that I have to do many things. I call it the dream job.”

          Российские туристы остаются в аэропорту Бургаса из-за задержки авиарейсов   

СОФИЯ, 30 июня. /Корр. ТАСС Игорь Ленкин/. Сотни российских туристов застряли в аэропорту Бургаса из-за задержки рейсов авиакомпании Bulgaria air Москву и Санкт-Петербург. Как сообщает телекомпания bTV, свыше 200 человек, в том числе дети, возвращающиеся в Санкт-Петербурге, уже с 4.00 мск пятницы блокированы в транзитной зоне аэропорта. По предварительным данным, причиной задержки рейсов на Москву стали неблагоприятные метеоусловия в российской столице, а рейс в Петербург отложен из-за неисправности воздушного судна. «Начиная с 24 июня болгарская авиакомпания практически постоянно нарушает график авиаперевозок. На данный момент уже на несколько часов задержаны пять рейсов в Москву и Санкт-Петербург. От пассажиров поступают жалобы, что авиакомпания не обеспечивает их адекватным питанием и не информирует о ситуации», — сообщила ТАСС вице-консул Генерального консульства РФ в Варне Александра Дергачева. Дипломат отметила, что у консульства тоже возникают сложности в общении с авиакомпанией, так как ее телефоны не отвечают. Кроме того, пассажирам не выдаются справки о задержке авиарейсов. В Министерстве туризма Болгарии корреспондента ТАСС заверили, что окажут россиянам необходимую помощь. «В Минтуризма жалоб от россиян пока не поступало, но мы оперативно вмешаемся в ситуацию и окажем им необходимую помощь», — сообщила представитель ведомства Албена Методиева.

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

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

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

          The Organic Surrealism of Hundertwasser   

Darmstadt may have earned the title for being the City of Arts and Sciences. The former for having being once been the centre of the German Jugendstil movement, and the latter for its particle accelerator and being home to a division of the European Space Agency. However, this smallish town located between Frankfurt and Heidelberg is off the tourist track and often forgotten about. Darmstadt is not only home to an interesting Jugendstil artist’s quarter, but also home to an amazing example of modern, avant-garde architecture. Besides a few apartment blocks, a car park and an Aldi, Friedensreich Hundertwasser’s Waldspirale curls from the ground up in a collection of multi-coloured tiers, golden

          El apellido del padre seguirá teniendo preferencia: se pospone la reforma del Registro Civil   

padres-con-su-bebé

Hace un mes os contábamos que a finales de junio entraría en vigor una reforma del Registro Civil mediante la cual, a la hora de inscribir al recién nacido ya no tendría prevalencia el apellido paterno –como ocurre en la actualidad- sino que ambos progenitores deberían ponerse de acuerdo en la elección del orden de los apellidos.

Pero, finalmente, la ley no entrará en vigor tal y como estaba previsto, sino que se retrasará, previsiblemente, hasta el 30 de junio de 2018 siendo ya la tercera vez que se este cambio legal se pospone.

Tocará esperar un año más

Si vais a ser padres pronto y la noticia de la nueva Ley del Registro Civil os había mantenido ocupados debatiendo el orden de los apellidos de vuestro hijo, debéis saber que, por el momento, seguirá primando el apellido del padre sobre el de la madre.

Los partidos consideran que necesita más tiempo organizativo y tecnológico para proceder a los cambios que deberán hacerse en la estructura del Registro Civil. Por lo que se ha solicitado una prórroga de un año para la entrada en vigor de la ley.

Desde el año 2000 existe la posibilidad de que los padres elijan el orden de los apellidos de sus hijos, pero en función del volúmen de solicitudes y de la estructura administrativa de cada localidad, este proceso podría llevar tiempo. Además, en caso de falta de consenso se optará por el apellido paterno.

Con la nueva Ley no sólo se agilizarían los trámites, sino que en caso de falta de consenso por parte de los padres ya no primaría el apellido paterno por defecto, sino que el magistrado elegiría uno u otro sin ningún criterio establecido.

¿Cómo es esta ley en otros países europeos?

La mayoría de los países europeos utiliza sólo un apellido, y aunque tradicionalmente había sido el del padre, en la actualidad muchos países permiten que la pareja elija el apellido que llevarán los hijos. Este es el caso de Reino Unido, Holanda o Alemania, por ejemplo.

En Francia, hasta el año 2005 los hijos recibían siempre el apellido paterno. Pero a partir de ese año, los padres ya pueden elegir qué apellido quieren que lleven sus hijos y en qué orden. Además, se da también la opción de combinar los apellidos de los dos progenitores o utilizar los dos apellidos de un mismo progenitor.

Algo similar ocurre en Suiza, donde además existe la posibilidad de elaborar un apellido compuesto uniendo el de ambos miembros de la pareja mediante un guión.

En Suecia, los padres pueden elegir también el orden de los apellidos, pero si no hay un acuerdo el apellido que tiene prioridad es el de la madre, a diferencia de lo que ocurre en nuestro país.

En otros países como Rusia, Bulgaria o Islandia forman el apellido a partir del nombre del padre, al que le añaden un sufijo según sea niña o niño.

          Cash flow vs. collateral-based credit: Performance of micro, small and medium-sized firms in transition economies   
We study factors affecting micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) receiving loans and the effect of these loans on MSMEs performance. We study two types of loans – a new type based on cash flows and a traditional-style loan based on collateral. We use unique surveys of MSMEs from Bulgaria, Georgia, Russia and Ukraine. We find that MSMEs receiving a cash flow or collateral loan in the past are more likely to receive the same type of loan (and larger sized) in the future and that cash flow loans may be the preferred form of credit. Both types of loans are related positively to most performance indicators, enabling the MSMEs for instance to be more profitable and expand production. The cash flow loans also appear to be particularly attractive credit delivery schemes for micro and small enterprises. Finally, the effects of the smallest loans are often negative, suggesting that the minimum loan size is an important policy issue.
          Se duplican en un año los delitos sexuales cometidos por inmigrantes en Alemania   

Dos policías alemanes han sido apartados de sus puestos después de no haber atendido a una mujer violada por un inmigrante en Bonn. Sin embargo, este no ha sido el único caso de agresión sexual.

Y, es que, la desatención de los agentes ha acrecentado la percepción de que las autoridades alemanas no se están tomando en serio la oleada de violaciones  sexuales que se están cometiendo desde que la canciller Angela Merkel abriera las puertas a los inmigrantes.

Por su interés reproducimos el artículo de Gatestone Institute:

El incidente se produjo poco después de la medianoche del 2 de abril, cuando una mujer de 23 años fue violada en un campamento de la reserva natural de Siegaue. Cuando el novio de la chica, de 26 años, presa del pánico, llamó al número de emergencias para pedir ayuda, una agente cogió el teléfono.

El novio de la joven llamó en varias ocasiones a los agentes

El hombre dijo: "A mi novia la está violando un hombre negro. Lleva un machete". La policía respondió: "¿Estás de coña?" ("Sie wollen mich nicht verarschen, oder?"). El hombre respondió: "No, no". La policía dijo: "Hum". Tras unos momentos de silencio, le aseguró que enviaría un coche de la policía a investigar. Después la policía dijo: "Gracias, adiós", y colgó abruptamente el teléfono.

Unos minutos después, el novio volvió a llamar al número de emergencias de la policía y otro agente cogió el teléfono. El hombre dijo: "Hola, acabo de hablar con su compañera". El agente replicó: "¿De qué se trata?" El hombre: "Se trata de que están violando a mi novia". El agente: "Esto es en Siegaue, ¿verdad?". El hombre: "Exacto". El agente le dijo entonces al hombre que llamara a la policía en Siegburg, una localidad al norte de Bonn. "Ellos pueden coordinar esto mejor", dijo el agente antes de colgar.

la policía de Bonn anunció dos meses después de la violación que los dos agentes implicados en el caso no podrían "nunca jamás" volver a trabajar en  la policía

La policía llegó finalmente al lugar de los hechos unos veinte minutos tarde. Frank Piontek, portavoz de la comisaría de la policía de Bonn, defendió al principio la conducta de la policía: "Aunque la policía hubiese manejado esto de otra forma, no se podría haber hecho nada para detener la violación". Frente a la corriente de indignación pública, sin embargo, la policía de Bonn anunció el 31 de mayo —dos meses después de la violación— que los dos agentes implicados en el caso no podrían "nunca jamás" volver a trabajar en el centro de control de emergencias de la policía.

Mientras, seis días después de la violación, la policía arrestó a un sospechoso, un migrante de Ghana de 31 años llamado Eric Kwame Andam X., a partir de pruebas de ADN. Eric X. era bien conocido por la policía alemana: había sido detenido cinco veces por distintos delitos, pero nunca fue acusado y lo dejaron siempre libre. Luego se supo que había huido de Ghana en 2016, después de asesinar a su cuñado.

[caption id="attachment_15537" align="aligncenter" width="545"]Refugiados en Hungría Cientos de refugiados musulmanes de paso en Hungría camino al norte de Europa.[/caption]

Tras abandonar Ghana, Eric X., cuyo padre era uno de los principales productores de cacao del país, viajó a Libia. Desde allí cruzó el mar Mediterráneo hasta llegar a Italia, donde solicitó el asilo y pasó nueve meses en un centro para refugiados.

A principios de 2017, Eric X. cogió un tren en Roma; llegó a Alemania el 10 de febrero de 2017 y allí solicitó asilo. Un mes después, las autoridades alemanas rechazaron su solicitud. Eric X. debería haber sido deportado el 17 de marzo —dos semanas antes de la violación en Bonn—, pero un abogado de inmigración presentó una petición en su nombre para apelar la resolución del asilo, aunque las leyes de la UE estipulan claramente que Eric X. sólo podía pedir asilo en un único país de la UE, en su caso, Italia. Los jueces de allí no pudieron fallar sobre la apelación en su plazo, por la sobrecarga de casos similares.

El caso de Eric X. y su víctima de violación de 23 años ha revelado, una vez más, el fracaso sistémico de las autoridades alemanas

El caso de Eric X. y su víctima de violación de 23 años ha revelado, una vez más, el fracaso sistémico de las autoridades alemanas para mantener la ley y el orden y la seguridad de la población: no aseguran las fronteras, no se veta la entrada de inmigrantes, no se procesa y encarcela a criminales, no se deporta a solicitantes de asilo rechazados y la policía no se toma en serio la crisis de violaciones cometidas por migrantes en que está sumida Alemania.

Más de 3.000 delitos sexuales

Un informe anual —Kriminalität im Kontext von Zuwanderung—, publicado por la Oficina Federal de Investigación Criminal (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) el 27 de abril reveló un aumento de casi el 500% en los delitos sexuales (definidos como agresiones sexuales, violaciones y abuso sexual de menores) cometidos por migrantes durante los últimos cuatro años.

El informe revelaba que los migrantes (Zuwanderer, definidos como solicitantes de asilo, refugiados e inmigrantes ilegales) cometieron 3.404 delitos sexuales en 2016, alrededor de nueve al día. Esto era un aumento del 102% frente a 2015, cuando los migrantes cometieron 1.683 delitos sexuales, alrededor de cinco al día. En comparación, los migrantes cometieron 949 delitos sexuales en 2014, aproximadamente tres al día, y 599 delitos sexuales en 2013, cerca de dos al día.

Según el informe, los principales agresores en 2016 eran de: Siria (un 318,7% más respecto a 2015), Afganistán (+259,3%), Irak (+222,7%), Pakistán (+70,3%), Irán (+329,7%), Argelia (+100%) y Marruecos (+115,7%).

El problema en Alemania de los delitos cometidos por migrantes lo está exacerbado su benevolente sistema legal, en el que los agresores reciben sentencias relativamente blandas, incluso por delitos graves. En muchos casos, los individuos arrestados por delitos sexuales son puestos en libertad tras ser interrogados por la policía. Esta práctica permite a los sospechosos de delitos seguir perpetrándolos con la práctica inmunidad.

En Hamburgo, por ejemplo, un solicitante de asilo de 29 años y origen afgano agredió sexualmente a una joven de 15 años cuando ésta dormía en una habitación de un hospital de la zona. El afgano había sido admitido en la sala de urgencias del hospital por su avanzado estado de intoxicación etílica. El afgano, al que nadie atendía, acabó metiéndose en la habitación de una mujer de 29 años que logró que la dejara en paz. Después entró en la habitación de la chica de 15 años y realizó actos sexuales sobre ella. Fue detenido y puesto en libertad. La policía dijo que no había suficiente base para presentar cargos.

También en Hamburgo, un tribunal dictaminó el 8 de junio que Alí D., un migrante iraquí de 29 años que violó a una chica de 13 en la estación de metro de Jungfernstieg, no podía ser culpable de la acusación de abuso sexual de menores (Sexueller Missbrauch von Kindern) porque no podía saber que la chica tenía menos de 14 años. Descartada la acusación de abuso sexual de una menor, Alí D. se enfrenta a una sola acusación por violación que, en este caso, conlleva una sentencia máxima de cuatro años de cárcel.

El tribunal dijo también que Alí D. tenía la "responsabilidad disminuida" porque estaba borracho cuando violó a su víctima

El tribunal fue indulgente porque Alí D. —que huyó a Hungría tras la agresión y fue extraditado a Alemania el 2 de marzo— confesó la violación de la chica. El tribunal dijo también que Alí D. tenía la "responsabilidad disminuida" (verminderte Schuldfähigkeit) porque estaba borracho cuando violó a su víctima.

El mismo tribunal había impuesto anteriormente condenas suspendidas a un grupo de adolescentes serbios que habían violado colectivamente a una chica de 14 años y la dejaron abandonada, creyéndola muerta, a varios grados bajo cero. En su momento, el juez dijo que, aunque "las penas podrían parecer suaves al público", los adolescentes habían confesado todos, parecían arrepentidos y ya no representaban un peligro para la sociedad.

La sentencia, que efectivamente permitía a los violadores salir en libertad, provocó un raro arrebato de indignación pública por el problema de los delitos sexuales a manos de migrantes en Alemania. Una petición en internet que pide que los adolescentes pasaran una temporada en la cárcel ha recabado más de 100.000 firmas, y los fiscales dijeron que apelarían el veredicto. El tribunal, sin embargo, todavía no ha accedido a volver a juzgar el caso.

En Berlín, un tribunal absolvió a un turco de 23 años del delito de violación porque su víctima no pudo demostrar que fue sin su consentimiento. El tribunal escuchó el testimonio de cómo el hombre empujó la cabeza de la víctima entre las barras del cabecero de una cama y la violó repetidas veces durante un lapso de más de cuatro horas. La mujer gritaba para que parase, y se resistía arañando al acusado en la espalda, pero en un determinado momento dejó de resistirse. El tribunal preguntó: "¿Es posible que el acusado pensase que usted estaba de acuerdo?" El tribunal dijo que no podía determinar si, desde la perspectiva de la cultura turca, lo que ella pensaba que era una violación podría haber sido simplemente sexo salvaje.

En la vecina Austria, el Tribunal Supremo redujo la sentencia de Amir A., migrante de 21 años iraquí, de siete años a cuatro por violar a un chico de diez años en una piscina pública en Viena. Durante su juicio inicial, Amir A. confesó haber violado al niño. Dijo que fue una "urgencia sexual" porque no había tenido relaciones en cuatro meses. Su abogado defensor convenció al Tribunal Supremo de que la sentencia de siete años era "draconiana" y "excesiva". Contando el tiempo que ya ha cumplido, Amir A. saldrá pronto en libertad.

Si las encuestas de opinión dan alguna indicación, no parece que la canciller Merkel deba temer un precio político por su papel en la crisis migratoria

Entretanto, si las encuestas de opinión dan alguna indicación, no parece que la canciller Merkel deba temer un precio político por su papel en la crisis migratoria. De hecho, es tan popular ahora como lo era antes de que estallara la crisis en agosto de 2015.

El 64% de los alemanes satisfechos con Merkel 

Una encuesta de ARD-Deutschlandtrend publicada el 8 de junio reveló que el 64% de los alemanes están "satisfechos" o "muy satisfechos" con Merkel. Si la canciller alemana fuese elegida directamente, el 53% (un 4% más respecto al mes anterior) elegiría a Merkel, mientras que un 29% optaría por su oponente socialdemócrata, Martin Schulz (un 7% menos respecto al mes anterior).

En septiembre de 2016, la encuesta de ARD-Deutschlandtrend reveló que el ratio de popularidad de Merkel se hundió hasta el 45%, el porcentaje más bajo en cinco años, y un descenso del 67% respecto al año anterior. En ese momento, más de la mitad (51%) de los encuestados dijo que "no sería bueno" que Merkel se presentara a otra legislatura en 2017.

[caption id="attachment_51479" align="aligncenter" width="434"]La canciller alemana, Angela Merkel La canciller alemana, Angela Merkel / EFE[/caption]

Las encuestas parecen presentar dos factores a favor de Merkel: la falta de un rival suficientemente fuerte para desafiarla, y que los votantes podrían pensar que ella es la candidata menos mala para dirigir el país.

Casos judiciales relacionados con inmigrantes

10 de mayo. Un somalí de 18 años fue sentenciado a pasar siete años y medio en un hospital psiquiátrico por agredir sexualmente a dos ancianos y asesinar a una mujer de 87 años en una residencia de Neuenhaus. El somalí había entrado en la residencia por la noche a través de una puerta que no estaba cerrada con llave. Realizó actos sexuales encima de un anciano que estaba dormido. Después entró en la habitación adyacente y realizó actos sexuales sobre otro anciano que dormía. Cuando la mujer del hombre se despertó y sorprendió al somalí en el acto, el somalí la golpeó con tanta fuerza que ésta murió instantes después.

11 de mayo. En Landshut, un solicitante de asilo de 37 años de Uganda fue sentenciado a cuatro años de cárcel por violar a una mujer de 29 años. La mujer iba en su bicicleta cuando el hombre la paró, le arrancó la ropa y la amenazó con una pistola si ella se resistía al acto sexual. El juez dijo que el hombre tenía "responsabilidad disminuida" (verminderte Schuldfähgkeit) porque estaba bebido cuando violó a su víctima. El juez también señaló que el hombre no podía ser deportado porque es bisexual y la homosexualidad es ilegal en Uganda.

22 de mayo. En Leipzig, Mirza B., un migrante de 23 años de Pakistán, fue sentenciado a un año y diez meses de cárcel por agredir sexualmente a varias mujeres.

("Bebo siete cervezas al día") y la ignorancia ("No sabía que la agresión sexual es un delito"). Mirza B. no puede ser deportado porque no tiene pasaporte u otra identificación oficial.

          Spacex preps for third launch in 9 days   

Inching closer to its goal of biweekly launches SpaceX is preparing for the third Falcon 9 launch, just nine days after back-to-back satellite launches.

SpaceX is targeting Sunday evening to launch an Intelsat Epic communication satellite from Kennedy Space Center launchpad 39A. Unlike the rockets last weekend, this one is expendable and will not make a landing at sea or back at Cape Canaveral.

Weather could be an issue Sunday for the 58-minute launch window, which opens at 7:36 p.m. Air Force weather officials predicted a 40 percent chance of “Go” launch conditions Sunday, citing cloud cover as the sea breeze pushes in storms. If the launch is delayed to Monday, conditions improve to 50 percent.

The satellite is the fourth in the Intelsat Epic line, which provides broadband for wireless providers.

SpaceX, which is lead by CEO Elon Musk, has already surpassed the number of launches completed last year half way into 2017. Intelsat will mark the 10th launch of this year.

COO Gwynne Shotwell said at the beginning of the year that the company wants to start launching every two to three weeks. SpaceX has a backlog of 70 customer contracts for their launch vehicles: the Falcon 9 and the Falcon Heavy. The first Falcon Heavy launch is tentatively set for the end of the summer using two pre-flown boosters, Musk said.

With last weekend's doubleheader launches from both U.S. coasts SpaceX has successfully recaptured 13 Falcon 9 first-stage boosters.

Also this week, the company secured a lease for two acres at Port Canaveral to build a hangar where previously-flown rockets will be refurbished and sent back out to launch, which could further shorten the time between launches.

          Se sorteó Wimbledon   

Se viene Wimbledon y la expectativa es cada vez más grande. Sin dudas que el torneo más antiguo y prestigioso del circuito llama la atención de todo el mundo. Por eso, a días de su arranque, se sorteó el cuadro principal que tendrá la presencia de siete tenistas argentinos. El principal representante será Juan Martín Del Potro, quien se enfrentará en primera ronda ante un débil rival -en los papeles- como es el australiano Thanasi Kokkianakis, ubicado en el puesto 478 del ranking ATP. Sin embargo, al resto de los compatriotas le tocaron rivales dentro del Top 100 y no será nada fácil su bautismo en el torneo más inglés.

A su vez, las grandes figuras del tenis mundial tendrán debuts variados: Andy Murray (1°) jugará ante un jugador que llegará desde la qualy, Rafael Nadal (2°) se enfrentará al estadounidense John Millman (137°) y Stan Wawrinka (3°) hará lo propio ante Daniil Medvedev (52°). 

Por su parte, el principal candidato Roger Federer (5°), quién se consagró siete veces en el este certamen, debutará ante Alexandr Dolgopolov (84°) y Novak Djokovic (4°) se medirá ante el 44° del mundo, el eslovaco Martin Klizan.

Volley, Boris Yeltsin Cup femminile, ultima giornata: Russia-Serbia assegna il trofeo
LaQuotaVincente.it.

La Boris Yeltsin Cup femminile è giunta all'ultima giornata. Si gioca infatti il quarto turno, con la Bulgaria che, dovendo riposare, ha già concluso il suo torneo chiudendo con 3 punti per via della vittoria per 3-1 con il Kazakistan e le sconfitte con Serbia, Turchia e Russia (3-0). Il programma dell'ultima giornata prevede due incontri.

Kazakistan-Turchia è la prima sfida. Si affrontano due formazioni a quota 3 punti, con la Turchia in grado di battere la Bulgaria per 3-0, ma ha perso con lo stesso risultato contro la Russia e, pur vincendo un set, si è arresa anche alla Serbia (3-1). La vittoria, ad ogni modo, non è a rischio. Il terzo posto è garantito, visto che pur salendo a 6 non potrebbe raggiungere la Russia per via dello scontro diretto.

Russia-Serbia è la seconda sfida, l'ultima di questa giornata della Boris Yeltsin Cup femminile. Si affrontano le due formazioni a 9 punti: chi vince alza il trofeo. La Serbia ha vinto tutte le sfide finora disputate, con due vittorie per 3-0 su Kazakistan e Bulgaria e il 3-1 sulla Turchia. A punteggio pieno anche la Russia, che ha battuto per 3-0 il fanalino di coda e per 3-1 la Turchia, oltre al 3-0 sulla Bulgaria nell'ultimo turno. Russia che cerca la terza vittoria nelle ultime quattro edizioni dopo le vittorie nel 2013 e nel 2015, oltre alla finale nel 2014 persa per 3-2 contro la Bulgaria.

          Líderes de todo el mundo se reúnen para despedir al excanciller alemán Helmut Kohl   
Los dirigentes políticos mundiales se despedirán este sábado del ex canciller alemán Helmut Kohl, fallecido el pasado el pasado 16 de junio, con un homenaje en la sede del Parlamento Europeo en Estrasburgo al que acudirán Don Juan Carlos y Doña Sofía junto al expresidente del Gobierno Felipe González. En cambio, finalmente no participará en esta ceremonia el presidente del Gobierno, Mariano Rajoy, aunque el ministro de Exteriores, Alfonso Dastis, acompañará a los Reyes eméritos. Kohl, que fue jefe del Gobierno alemán entre 1982 y 1998, fue uno de los grandes impulsores de la UE y es considerado 'padre' de la reunificación alemana. La ceremonia de homenaje a Kohl, organizada en un lugar que representa el corazón del proyecto europeo, arrancará a las 11.00 horas y concluirá hacia las 13.00 horas. Los restos mortales del ex canciller alemán serán recibidos a las 10.35 horas por el presidente de la República Francesa, Emmanuel Macron, y por su viuda, Maike Kohl-Ritcher, poco después de que comiencen a llegar las delegaciones. El libro de condolencias podrá firmarse en el exterior del salón protocolario, antes del arranque de la ceremonia oficial a las 11.00 horas. Emotivo homenaje La ceremonia comenzará con el traslado de los restos mortales de Kohl a la Cámara del Parlamento Europeo, cubiertos por una bandera europea, por parte de ocho miembros del 'Wachbataillon' (Guardia de honor) alemán que estarán acompañados por el Eurocuerpo. Los presidentes de las tres instituciones europeas, Jean-Claude Juncker (Comisión Europea), Donald Tusk (Consejo Europeo) y Antonio Tajani (Parlamento Europeo) pronunciarán a continuación los discursos oficiales, a los que seguirá la proyección del vídeo sobre la figura del ex canciller, Helmut Kohl, "un gran europeo". A título personal y a petición de la viuda de Kohl, pronunciarán discursos de despedida el expresidente del Gobierno Felipe González, el expresidente de Estados Unidos Bill Clinton, así como el primer ministro israelí, Benjamin Netanyahu, y su homólogo ruso, Dimitri Medvedev. Por último, intervendrán el presidente francés, Emmanuel Macron, y la canciller alemana, Angela Merkel. La ceremonia finalizará con la Orquesta de la Universidad de Estrasburgo tocando el himno nacional alemán y el himno europeo, acompañada por el Coro Filarmónico de la ciudad. Los restos mortales de Kohl serán después trasladados desde el Parlamento Europeo a la ciudad alemana de Speyer, donde será enterrado tras una misa funeral en la catedral. A Estrasburgo se desplazarán numerosas personalidades políticas para dar su último adiós al ex canciller alemán, incluidos los primeros ministro de Reino Unido, Theresa May, Bélgica, Charles Michel, Países Bajos, Mark Rutte, Hungría, Viktor Orban, así como los primeros ministros de Austria, Bulgaria, República Checa, Eslovenia, Luxemburgo, Suecia, Letonia, Lituania y Estonia, así como el presidente de Polonia. También acudirán tres expresidentes de la Comisión Europea Jacques Santer, Romano Prodi y José Manuel Durao Barroso, la mayor parte de los miembros de la Comisión actual, así como numerosos eurodiputados y un gran número de dirigentes políticos alemanes. «Alemán y un patriota europeo» El exsecretario de Estado estadounidense, Henry Kissinger, también acudirá a dar el último adiós al ex canciller alemán, así como el presidente ucraniano, Viktor Poroshenko. «Vamos a decir adiós a mi amigo Helmut Kohl en Estraburgo y esto es una manera de elogiar el trabajo de toda su vida», ha subrayado este viernes Juncker en rueda de prensa conjunta con el primer ministro estonio, Jüri Ratas, desde Tallín. Juncker ha recordado que Kohl era «alemán y un patriota europeo y nunca encontró ninguna contradicción entre el patriotismo europeo y el patriotismo alemán» y ha justificado el homenaje como «un gesto» a «un ciudadano honorífico» como también fueron Jean Monet y Jacques Delors, padres fundadores del proyecto europeo. Desde Tallín, el jefe del Ejecutivo comunitario también ha puesto en valor el gran empuje de Kohl a la ampliación de la UE a los países del este de Europa. «Esto no es algo que hubiera ocurrido sin Helmut Kohl. Esta parte de Europa también debe ser agradecida a Helmut Kohl», ha dicho. «En Estonia estamos inmensamente agradecidos. Durante su mandato, Estonia fue invitada a las negociaciones con la UE y reconoció la independencia de Estonia», ha asegurado el jefe del Ejecutivo estonio.
          Europe forecast: Unsettled north-central Europe - Heat continues south-east, Jul 01 - 05:43   

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

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