How To Work Your Beauty Routine Into Your Busy Schedule   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Madonna teases 'Ghosttown' video   

Madonna has issued a preview of her next music video.

The singer is releasing the track 'Ghosttown' as the latest cut from 2015 album 'Rebel Heart'.

A 16-second clip of its video has been premiered on Jay Z's new streaming platform Tidal, which Madonna has a share in.

The US star's last video - for the track 'Living For Live' - was initially given its debut on Snapchat.

However, it later was uploaded to the usual services Vevo and YouTube.

Speaking recently about Tidal - which is co-owned by a host of big music acts - Madonna said:

"If you refer to Tidal as Illuminati, you are paying us the highest of compliments. As I've stated before it is another name for "The Enlightened Ones" a group of scientists, philosophers and artists that emerged after the dark ages. They changed and shaped the world for the better! Do the research and find out for yourself!"

          Sony a9 banding issue: fact or fiction?   

Recently, Jared Polin of Fro Knows Photo released a video showing images shot with the Sony a9 and 70-200mm F2.8 GM lens that displayed visible banding across parts of the image in 2% of his shots from a recent soccer match in Philadelphia.* Here's what the banding looks like at 100%:

This is a 100% crop of the Sony a9 banding issues that Jared Polin noticed in a small portion of his shots of sideline players at a recent soccer match. The bands themselves are 84 pixels in height, each composed of 7 12-pixel bands. Read on to understand why those numbers are significant when it comes to explaining the phenomenon.

Photo: Jared Polin

Blame the electronic shutter?

Not so fast. Some commenters were quick to blame artificial stadium lighting, which can of course interfere with electronic shutters. However, the a9's electronic shutter is no ordinary electronic shutter: it can scan across the entire sensor in a mere 1/160s (proven by our friend, and well-respected forum member, Jim Kasson here). Meanwhile, the a9's mechanical shutter isn't actually much faster - it takes 1/300s to sweep across the image plane.** That means that in typical artificial lighting, which tends to flicker at 60 or 120 Hz, the 1/160s shutter rate of the a9 is fast enough that it'll only ever really see 1 or 1.3 pulses of the flickering light as the sensor is scanned. The a9's electronic shutter is only one stop away from catching up to mechanical shutters.

This means that even in the worst artificially-lit scenarios, you might see one large diffuse band across your image at very high shutter speeds (remember: shutter speed determines the intensity of such bands), but generally you're unlikely to notice if just a quarter of your image happens to have a slight roll-off to a dimmer - or brighter - exposure.

In other words, in the real-world, artifacts caused by the a9's electronic shutter are rarely an issue under dominant artificial lighting. Furthermore, in this example the match was being played in a mixture of natural and artificial light, with natural light being dominant.

So what caused the banding?

A closer look at the LED advertising boards

Look closely at the image above at 100%, and you'll see the larger bands themselves are composed of bands 12-pixels high. 12-pixels... rings a bell. Jim Kasson's work suggested the a9 reads its sensor out in 12-row chunks, possibly by using 12 parallel ADCs (analog-to-digital converters). That's how it can scan across its entire full-frame sensor so quickly. This suggests the sensor readout is somehow implicated - but how?

Take a close look at the LED advertising boards at 100%:

A shot of the LED advertising boards clearly implicate them as the source of the banding. Each one of those aliased bands are 12 pixels high, and we know from Jim Kasson's studies that the a9 reads it sensor out in 12-row chunks, using 12 parallel ADCs.

Photo: Jared Polin

The one thing common to Jared's 2% of images is that the players are at least partially lit by the LED advertising boards on the sidelines. Those panels create an image by rapidly pulsing their red, green, and blue LEDs to allow for different colors and brightness, and it's the first type of light source we've seen that has caused the a9 any grief.

And by rapid switching we do mean rapid. The larger bands are 84 pixels in height, meaning there are about 48 of them across the entire 4000 pixel-high image. Since we know that full sensor readout takes 1/160s, that means those LEDs pulsed 48 cycles in 6.25 milliseconds, or at a frequency of ~7700 Hz.

Even a mechanical focal plane shutter will experience some kind of banding with a light source cycling 7700 times a second. However, the a9's banding is worse for two reasons:

  1. A mechanical shutter would take half as much time traversing the image plane, which means half as many bands (probably 24 larger bands would show up in these sorts of images).

  2. The a9's electronic shutter proceeds in 12-row chunks; a mechanical shutter is more analogous to an electronic shutter proceeding line by line, which would yield smoother bands. Not the more hard-edged, lower frequency (and therefore more readily identifiable) 12-row bands that are visually more distracting than if they had been gradual, single-pixel rows transitioning from one color or brightness to another.

This is the reason why Fro only sees banding in some of his photos, and why even in those it is limited to certain surfaces. The bands are most prominent wherever the LED boards were lending the most light to the subject.

Is it a big deal?

So does this matter? Is it as big a deal as some people are making it out to be?

That all depends on how often you expect to run into this situation. These types of LED lights are relatively rare—basically only appearing in scoreboards and ad boards of the kind you see at sporting events. And even when they're present, the board has to be casting a significant amount of the light on your subject for it to cause any problems.

Furthermore, your shutter speed has to be extremely high to make these bands prominent, and even mechanical shutters are likely not entirely immune to some effect from such LED boards.

Even at an image level, the 84-pixel wide bands can be visually distracting if the LED boards are a dominant source of illumination for your (sideline) subject.

Photo: Jared Polin

All those considerations taken together explain why Fro only found banding in about 50 of the 1,905 images he shot.

If you scrolled down here to the bottom to get the definitive answer to the source and cause of the banding, it's this: very high frequency (>7000Hz) flickering LEDs on the ad boards, happening to cast enough light on players close enough to the sidelines, combined with the 12-row parallel readout that allows the electronic shutter of the a9 to achieve almost mechanical shutter speeds.

Granted, as a camera designed (partly) to satisfy the needs of sports photographers, the a9 is probably going to be found shooting in situations with LED signboards around where, after-hours, they might account for a significant portion of light on your sideline subjects if they're bright enough. If that describes the situations you'll be routinely shooting under, and you're concerned about the 2% banding rate in sideline action, this may be something to add to your 'cons' list when considering this camera.


*Note this is a different sort of banding than the rare striping we investigated in our full review (that results from the masked phase-detection rows of pixels).

**Compare that to the a7R II's 1/14s, or the Fuji GFX 50S' 1/4s, electronic or 'silent' shutters.


          Visualizing Epithelial Expression in Vertical and Horizontal Planes With Dual Axes Confocal Endomicroscope Using Compact Distal Scanner   
The epithelium is a thin layer of tissue that lines hollow organs, such as colon. Visualizing in vertical cross sections with sub-cellular resolution is essential to understanding early disease mechanisms that progress naturally in the plane perpendicular to the tissue surface. The dual axes confocal architecture collects optical sections in tissue by directing light at an angle incident to the surface using separate illumination and collection beams to reduce effects of scattering, enhance dynamic range, and increase imaging depth. This configuration allows for images to be collected in the vertical as well as horizontal planes. We designed a fast, compact monolithic scanner based on the principle of parametric resonance. The mirrors were fabricated using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology and were coated with aluminum to maximize near-infrared reflectivity. We achieved large axial displacements $> 400~\mu \text{m}$ and wide lateral deflections >20°. The MEMS chip has a $3.2\times2.9$ mm2 form factor that allows for efficient packaging in the distal end of an endomicroscope. Imaging can be performed in either the vertical or horizontal planes with $430~\mu \text{m}$ depth or $1 \times 1$ mm2 area, respectively, at 5 frames/s. We systemically administered a Cy5.5-labeled peptide that is specific for EGFR, and collected near-infrared fluorescence images ex vivo from pre-malignant mouse colonic epithelium to reveal the spatial distribution of this molecular target. Here, we demonstrate a novel scanning mechanism in a dual axes confocal endomicroscope that collects optical sections of- near-infrared fluorescence in either vertical or horizontal planes to visualize molecular expression in the epithelium.

Stunning 1967 Dissertation Warns Infiltration of Rothschild Luciferians in US Government 2


Between 1967 and 1968 Myron Fagan recorded three LP records: The Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations.  The dissertations document the activities of the house of Rothschild were  produced byAnthony J. Hilder – an American activist, author, film maker, talk show host, broadcaster and former actor.
This stunning recording from 1967 speaks to the very problems we face today, including Fake News, government corruption, the Corrupt United Nations and infiltration of a Luciferian Rothschild cult who may have gained irreversible control of the US government.

JOURNALIST SHUTS DOWN TRUMP ASSASSINATION PLAY

"Stop liberal violence!" Journalist screams

A conservative journalist interrupted the Trump assassination play in Central Park, N.Y., on Friday, only two days after the politically-motivated shooting of Republican lawmakers.
Laura Loomer of Rebel Media was arrested after rushing the stage, yelling that the production promoted violence against President Trump and his supporters.
The play, which is sponsored by Time Warner and the New York Times, features a Trump-lookalike who is violently assassinated in the same manner as Julius Caesar.

THE INCREDIBLY BRAVE HEROINE, MONIKA WESOLOWSKI ... MAY SHE BE PROTECTED IN EVERY DIVINE WAY

Breaking: Whistleblower Says Deep State in Control of State Department : Ongoing Child-Trafficking Cover-Up at St. Dept.


Did you know that at the State Department they have an exorbitantly paid employee, of Middle East background, who is in charge of the sex-trafficking brochures for the State Department? Did you know that same person refuses to cover this issue as domestic issue? This plays right into the hands of the Deep State cover-up of their child-sex-trafficking practices at the highest levels of government? This is tantamount to overtly supporting and covering up child-sex-trafficking and the State Department is the willing accomplice. Did you also know that the State Department has 3 men, led by Deep State minion and close Obama ally, Larry Palmer, who controls all information coming in and out of the State Department and they control the FOIA’s for the State Department as well.
State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski, has been unduly harassed and has had her life threatened for trying to expose traitors and overt practices of treason and sedition by State Department employees who are aligned with the Deep State motives and objectives. The following is an interview I conducted with Monika followed by objective, hard proof of the claims made by this whistleblower.
Unlike a lot of sources,this interview names the names of the guilty.

Monika “Begs” for Protection and Nobody From the State Department Will Help

Monika has begged for protection from the death threats, violent attacks and constant harassment. As recently as last Tuesday, June 13, 2017, Monika took the issue to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s aides. As of the date of this publication, she has not heard back on this critical issue. I want to put the State Department on notice, you do not wait 5 days to investigate these kinds of allegations when someone’s life is in danger. This is an example of intentional/unintentional depraved indifference to the safety of of State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski (see the email communications at the bottom of the page).
Previously, on The Common Sense Show,  I documented, with pictures, government vehicles that have stalked and harassed Monika. The Fairfax, VA. police have told Monika that it is not safer to go home and they cannot protect her.
More recently, Monika has had animals poisoned to death. She, herself, has had to be treated for poisoning, some of which was uranium related. When I recently tried to interview Monika by Skype, ourcommunications were blocked for hours. Simultaneously, our cell phone communications were blocked as well. Here home has been invaded when she is not home. She was boxed in by two Muslim men, at the carwash, and stayed near until she called the police. This woman is the Deep State posterchild for political and personal harassment. In the following emails, please note the reference to CHILD-SEX-TRAFFICKING. I further want it to be known that Liz Crokin discovered a connection between the Virginia Shooter baseball practice shooter and child-sex-trafficking and that the primary shooting victim, Rep. Scalise had just sponsored a child-sex-trafficking bill eight days prior to being shot. This is no coincidence, the Deep State strikes again.
Monika has backed out of previous interviews because she is in fear of her life. I have convinced her that if you are going to be on the list, you better be on top of the list. Because I know the fate of Breitbart and Hastings, I have shared this information with other journalistic outlets who are going to cover this case and we are going to turn up the heat significantly.
I want to remind everyone, that in several earlier publications, I have tapped into two unnamed sources, one from the FBI and one from the State Department and was told that there is a Deep State purge underway. Monika confirms the assertion as her office is “like a morgue, people have either left or people have cleared out their desks and are awaiting their departure”.

Crickets Chirping

After numerous instances of being harassed and attacked, she reached out to Secretary Tillerson’s office, but to no avail. Here are the unanswered communications:

Dear Ms. Peterlin,
I proudly attended Secretary of State Tillerson’s swearing in ceremony and have faith that he will be successful at the State Department. I would like to arrange a meeting with your office with the Secretary of State Mr. Rex Tillerson. It is imperative I speak to Mr. Tillerson. I do not feel safe at my office or at home, I have been under constant attack. I have had things happen to my family, myself, and in the office that I cannot talk about in email. I feel my life and health, as well as that of my family and those close to me, is in danger because of where I work and the people I work with, and their connections. I do not know who to trust and cannot trust Diplomatic Security here at DOS, my coworkers or upper management, especially not Ambassador Palmer, who is Deputy Assistant Secretary for Global Information Services. I was informed by my HR that Ambassador Palmer pushed for the Hatch Act for my having a photograph and items of President Trump in my cubicle after the election. The situation at work has been hostile and I have been harassed. Please let me know if you could speak with me or arrange a meeting with the Secretary. Please expect a call regarding this email just to verify.

 Conclusion

 I believe Monika’s best protection is the light of day. On that note, I would ask that all forward this article to your contact list. Secondly, if Tillerson’s office will not respond to this grave situation, then I would ask that everyone send this article to President Trump AND Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Finally, we need to keep the heat on this issue.

Why am I not surprised? Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has become a mouthpiece for the GMO and chemical agricultural industries that poison the global food supply, is narrating a new documentary called "Food Evolution."
The film pushes the same pro-GMO propaganda as a violent wife abuser who used to write for Forbes. Another fake science front group -- the ACSH -- appears in the film and is run by a convincted medical fraud FELON who spent years in prison (and now runs biotech propaganda campaigns for a living).
Neil deGrasse Tyson has become a shameful betrayor of humanity and nature and an insult to real science.

          Comment on The Righteous, Seduced by Secret Combinations by SWS   
Its really a shock to see LDS congressmen toss their integrity aside to support such a vile, amoral, dishonest, self-serving windbag as trump. Even more disturbing perhaps, is their aggressive partisan disrespect and obstruction of President Obama and his administration- he is a decent man who loves this country and worked every day for the people. And, that very secret meeting that several Republicans attended, vowing to obstruct anything and everything Pres. Obama tried to accomplish was a deal made in darkness- they vowed to obstruct even things that were for the good of the country because they wanted him to be a 1 term president- that is pretty evil. That meeting is a "secret combination". Republican hatred is still burning, even though the majority of Americans do not want the Affordable Care Act repealed, Mitch McConnell is trying to force it through anyway. The ACA can be fixed, but their hatred of Pres. Obama is the main reason they want it repealed. Trump is clearly trying to erase the existence of Pres.Obama from the pages of history, which is why McConnell & Ryan are supporting Trump, even supporting him on stupid things like withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord- putting the US in the same category with Nicaragua and Syria. The Trump, Ryan & McConnell team is a secret combination. McConnell's closed door creation of a terrible healthcare plan, with plans and schemes to push it through Congress is a secret combination. The GOP & Trump's plan to slash taxes for the very wealthy & corporations, while taking away, privatizing or gutting every aspect of government that helps people, will turn our government into a one primarily run by the wealthiest families and big corporations- rolling back regulations on pollution is one example of placing corporations over the welfare and health of people. Some in the religious right are also part of this secret combination- by diverting funds from public Education to private/religious schools, generations of Americans will be taught ideas as science that have nothing to do with science, they will teach their stereotypes and their irrational fears- they will turn this country into the pre-apocalyptic nation they are longing for. Talk of the Illuminati is an old story as well- mostly based on conspiracies without any real proof. But, these secret meetings, secret agendas that will redefine the U.S. and our freedoms is very real is happening in front of our faces. Other groups the right accuses of practically everything, just want their civil rights, equal rights, and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Orrin Hatch, Lee, Chaffetz & Heller have all shown their cruelty in their votes and are or have been part of these secret combinations. Orrin Hatch doesn't even appear to have a soul anymore.

It's downright despicable what Illumination Entertainment has done to the once-promising "Despicable Me" franchise. The third entry arrives in no better shape than either the second movie or its spinoff, "Minions." Despite a double performance by the always-entertaining Steve Carell, "Despicable Me 3" is, well, uninspired — except for the 80s music that'll keep Mom and Dad awake.

          Newport State Park – Wisconsin’s first Dark Sky park   

**Source:http://www.darksky.org/newport-state-park-designated-wisconsins-first-international-dark-sky-park/

Newport-blog-image-700px-366pxNewport State Park, Wisconsin’s only wilderness state park, has now also become the first state park in Wisconsin designated by IDA as an International Dark Sky Park, one of just 48 parks in the world to earn the distinction.

Located at the northern tip of Door County on the western shore of Lake Michigan, Newport has a dark sky that offers excellent nighttime viewing with an unobstructed view of the eastern horizon.  As a designated wilderness park, the hectare (2,373-acre) park offers only backpack camping and has minimal developments beyond the park office and a picnic area with a park shelter.

“After more than 15 years, IDA International Dark Sky Places is still a program of firsts, and today is no exception,” said IDA Executive Director J. Scott Feierabend. “Newport’s entry into the IDA family of International Dark Sky Parks is a welcomed development for Wisconsin and the protection of dark skies in the upper Midwest United States.”

With today’s designation, Newport joins the ranks of such U.S. National Parks as Big Bend, Glacier and Grand Canyon.  Only 13 other state parks in the United States have received IDA accreditation.

“The prestigious Dark Sky Park designation opens the park to local, regional, national and international astronomical clubs and societies, increasing tourism, especially ecotourism. Obtaining this honor will accord national and international recognition to Newport State Park and the Wisconsin State Park system,” said Ben Bergey, Wisconsin State Park System director.

The idea for applying for the designation began four years ago when Ray Stonecipher, a local Door County amateur astronomer and member of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, approached Park Superintendent Michelle Hefty about seeking the designation.

“In a modern world that is accompanied by ever increasing levels of nighttime illumination, a truly dark sky at night is rare and unique,” explained Hefty. Sensing the value of dark night skies at Newport, Hefty agreed to formally launch the certification effort.

Newport’s supporting partners for the Dark Sky Park project include the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, the Newport Wilderness Society, the parks friends group, and a committee of dedicated volunteers. Park staff carried out the work to complete the lengthy application and will continue to ensure the park meets IDA guidelines.

“From lighting projects to community education and outreach, our commitment to protect our dark sky is a priority we take seriously,” said Beth Bartoli, a Newport State Park naturalist who helps conduct astronomy programs at the park. “We never tire of seeing that ‘aha moment on the upturned faces of our visitors as they gaze toward the heavens.”

The park will host a dedication ceremony on Thursday, June 22 at which time an official International Dark Sky Park sign will be placed in the park.  The ceremony will feature talks by members of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society and Newport Wilderness Society as well as local officials.  The ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. at the park shelter and is open to the public with light refreshments served afterward.

          Despicable Me 3 Theatrical Review   
Despicable Me 3
Let's face it… Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures hit gold back in 2010 when the first Despicable Me movie made its way into theaters. With great characters, funny lines and a solid story, it delighted audiences, especially the adorable little yellow Minions. Due to its success, it was followed in 2013 by its sequel along with the spinoff films starring the Minions. It spawned a plethora of merchandising opportunities and the Minions even have their own amusement park ride. This year, in anticipation of the July 4th holiday, Gru (Steve Carell; The Office), Lucy (Kristen Wiig; Bridesmaids), the girls and all the Minions are back in Despicable Me 3.

After marrying Lucy, Gru turned from a life of crime to a secret agent bringing justice to the world. However, when his nemesis Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker; South Park) slips through his fingers yet again, Gru is fired by the new head of the AVL. Without a job and unsure of what to do, he gets an unexpected visit and discovers he has a twin brother, Dru (Carell) who needs Gru's help. So Gru, Lucy and the girls head to Fredonia to meet this long lost family member.

Living in a big house as a successful pig farmer, Dru has a secret that their father, who Gru thought had died, was actually a successful villain. Now that he has passed away, Dru wants Gru to show him how to be a villain but Gru explains he left all that behind for marriage and kids. However, When Bratt steals the most expensive Diamond in the world, the brothers go on a quest to steal it back. Along the way they have their bumps and bruises but ultimately come to an emotional reconciliation.

Once thing the film has going for it is its talented cast. Carell is excellent at his voiceover work and Gru is a well know and recognizable character. His turn at Dru is also well done, as he makes two distinct but similar voices. Wiig is great as Lucy and her voice has a warm tone to it that is appealing. Parker's Bratt has a rougher edge which is perfect for the villain he plays. Of the three girls, Nev Scharrel's (Clippings) Agnes is absolutely adorable and she manages to steal the show a few times. Of course, those adorable little, yellow guys –the Minions- are very much the scene stealers as well, though they don't appear too much throughout the hour and a half running time.

The soundtrack, filled with ‘80's pop tunes and original songs from Pharrell Williams, adds to the overall upbeat feel of the film and gives off an aura of general happiness. The animation is excellent but I expect no less from an Illuminations Production. Vibrant colors permeate the screen making everything bright and joyous.

The film has a lot going for it yet, somehow, it just doesn't have the same feel as the first two films and drags a little. While it offers up a few laughs, there wasn't enough to offset the moments that lag in between. I didn't especially like the Balthazar Bratt character and found him rather annoying, which may have diminished my enthusiasm for the movie. Carell has stated he doesn't know that he would reprise his role as Gru in a fourth film (but did insist he would be willing to do a cameo in future Minions movies) and I think he makes a wise choice.

While I love the Minions and the Girls (especially Agnes) and I like the family aspect of them, Lucy and Gru, I just didn't like this third installment as much as I did the first two. However, if you are a fan and have little ones, you should take some time this summer and make a family outing to the movie.

          Comment on OLSON: Rediscovering JFK’s Legacy by Francis Kennedy   
Dear Mr. Olson, Please accept my compliments on your June 28, 2017 article in The Hoya, entitled, "Rediscovering JFK's Legacy." President Kennedy was certainly a powerful influence at home and abroad, and your illuminating his legacy's connection to our current need for such leaders today highlights what we are missing in America: bold optimism and American exceptionalism as defined by genuine belief that there are no limits to our collective imaginations, persistence, and horizons. Just one point that I would like to clear up for you so that you can clear it up with your readership - the president's middle name is Fitzgerald, not Francis. It is his departed brother, Robert, whose middle name is Francis. Best of luck to you, and thank you for reminding us of the inspirations of a president whom we dearly miss, especially throughout tumultuous domestic times such as ours today. - Francis Kennedy

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 6/22 - MATILDA, OKLAHOMA, and More!   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature MATILDA, OKLAHOMA, CHICAGO, and more!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below!


Australia: Contributor Barry Lenny reviews MATILDA at the Adelaide Festival Theatre. He writes "Lucy Maunder plays the appropriately named, Miss Honey, all sweetness and light, without allowing her performance to descend into syrupy sentimentality. Maunder creates the teacher whom we all wish we had had in out first years at school, warm, gentle, supportive, and caring, the complete opposite of the headmistress. James Millar is hilarious as Miss Trunchbull, the villain of the piece. He struts, growls, shouts, and mentally and physically abuses the children. His Miss Trunchbull is an arrogant tyrant, charging through the students like a combine harvester in a wheat field, with audience laughter following him every step of the way."


Los Angeles: Contributing Editor Don Grigware reviews 3-D Theatricals' OKLAHOMA! He writes "The ensemble headed by Aks and Zachary Ford as Curly are magnificent triple threat performers. Aks has an operatic voice that dazzles and Ford has grown over the years into an exceedingly fine singer and actor. Tom Berklund as Will Parker makes his acrobatic dance moves look second nature and gives a superb performance. In line with the American Dream, both Will and Curly as played by Berklund and Ford show strength and determination in getting ahead and settling down with the women of their choice. Aks as Laurey is a much more complex character than previous Laureys we have seen. Dawson keeps the emphasis throughout on her tomboyish quality and her great outer strength in helping Aunt Eller ( the terrific Tracy Rowe Mutz) run the farm ... and on her fear of commitment to a relationship. When she pushes Curly aside, rejecting his advances, she is deeply struggling to understand her feelings and also her other unusual emotional connection to Jud Fry. Aks is as wonderful with Laurey's inner consternations as Kelly Dorney is with Ado Annie's openly aggressive reactions to the male element. Dorney's is a delicious performance full of feistiness and fun. Bonds is a sensation as Fry, exuding at times a brutal coldness, yet underneath we sense that there's a lot going on, some of which entails a sort of kind intent, apart from the expected cruelty. Boudreau as Hakim is hysterically delightful as the devious merchant, and E. E. Bell as Andrew Carnes, Ado Annie's pa, is simply great in a smaller role, as is Matt Merchant who stands out from among the 40+ ensemble as the stubborn, outspoken Cord Elam."


New Zealand: Contributing Editor Monica Moore reviews The Pumphouse Theatre's BRING IT ON. She writes "All cast members performed with a credibility beyond their years. Samantha Campbell was the anchor of the show and kept it moving along with her very talented performances. Comedic side kick Xanthe Pavlovich provided plenty of laughs as did Jaymee Brearly along and Kristin Paulse provided a fresh and earthy stage presence winning the audience over with her originality. The choreography (Gemma Boswell) was great and the cheerleading moves were creatively worked in. The basketball number was a personal favourite and kept me on the edge of my seat.


Phoenix: Contributor Herbet Paine reviews THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME. He writes "The supporting performances in this production are crisp and engaging. Gene Gillette cuts a sympathetic figure as Christopher's overbearing and protective father, desperately seeking to connect with his son while keeping a secret that may alienate him. Felicity Jones Latta is gripping as the mother whose frustration and guilt tear at her heart. Maria Elena Ramirez is perfect and relatable as Christopher's teacher who understands him better than anyone, provides moral support, and, as a play within a play, narrates the book he's written about his journey."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company. She writes "While the story may lag in places, MOBY DICK is consistently well-acted. As Ishmael, Jamie Abelson (who performs at all evening shows) embodies the earnest outsider in every way. Abelson's performance is endearing and slightly perturbed, which mirrors the dark overall tone of the tale. Anthony Fleming III is exceptional and often quite funny as Queequeg, Ishmael's fellow outsider on the Pequod. Fleming is not only a superb actor, but also one of the most accomplished acrobats on board the ship. Kareem Bandealy is consistently wonderful as the pragmatic shipman Starbuck. And as the infamous Captain Ahab, Nathan Hosner paints a disturbing portrait as an off-kilter man consumed by an unceasing thirst for revenge."


Central New York: Contributor Natasha Ashley reviews CHICAGO at the Central New York Playhouse. She writes "Shannon Tompkins' (also cast as Velma Kelly in select performances) choreography, based on Bob Fosse's original choreography, is some of the best that I have seen at this theatre. The Fosse-style dance expertise of ensemble member and Assistant Choreographer Stephfond Brunson also brought a wow factor to the proceedings. His solo dance in "Tap Dance" is a standout moment in the show. The choreography for this number is intricate, seductive, and intense."


Niagara on the Lake: Contributor Michael Rabice reviews THE MADNESS OF GEORGE THE III at the Shaw Festival. He writes "Director Kevin Bennett moves the evening along swiftly, but at the times the complexity of the dialogue as well as the various accents and dialects made the long first act a challenge. Mr. Bennett novelly chose to have the actors interact with the audience before each of the two acts. Subtle lighting changes make you unaware that the play begins with full house lights up, but then slowly dim as the action melds from off stage to onstage. Set designer Ken MacDonald has created an ingenious unit set that cleverly mirrors the actual interior of the Royal George Theatre. Box seats have been built on either side of the playing area, where actual theatre goers are seated. This brings an immediacy to the play, allowing these audience members to be embedded in the action, giving them a few bits of business to complete the staging."


New York / Dance: Contributor Christina Pandolfi reviews SWAN LAKE at American Ballet Theatre. She writes "And yet, all of that changed in the best way at the start of Act III in the great hall. The drama unfolded as von Rothbart appeared on the scene, introducing partygoers to his daughter, Odile. This time, Seo - dancing the iconic dual role of Odette/Odile - was edgy, sharp, and biting, as she bourréed with cutting intent and determination. Gomes matched her intensity, but offered a more subtle approach, lending her the steadfast guidance and support she deserved. The only time Seo showed her humanity was during the BLACK SWAN variation, where a repeated series of pirouettes tripped up her stability."


Cleveland: Contributor Roy Berko reviews AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at State Theatre. He writes "The elegant, artsy projections by 59 Productions create a cityscape of Paris, that makes the smell of baguettes baking, the trickling sound of the meandering Seine River, and the illuminating gaslights of the city live. The effect is aided by the lighting of Natasha Katz and the scenery and costumes by Bob Crowley. The orchestrations are both lush and, at times, jazzy. The musical sounds are full, enhancing the singing and dancing. The triple threat cast is generally strong. The petite, lovely, Sara Esty, a Leslie Caron look-alike, who was the understudy for the Broadway run, captivates as Lise. Her dancing, singing and acting are top-notch. (BTW, her sister, Leigh-Ann plays the roll on Sunday evenings during the Cleveland run)."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews THE KING AND I at Broadway in Chicago. She writes "Sher has assembled a talented and powerful ensemble for this tour. In Laura Michelle Kelly's self-assured Anna, Sher has found a tremendous leading lady for the tour. Not only is Kelly a perfectly expert vocalist, but she gives freely to her performance. Her Anna strikes the balance between firm and tender. Kelly's performance of the showstopper "Shall I Tell You What I Think of You" is particularly interesting; it's softer and less outright angry than other takes I've seen, but in a way that grants the number even more power for we see how deeply Anna feels in that moment. Kelly is well-matched by José Llana as the King of Siam. Llana's King is less severe than others I've seen, and one of the strongest singers I've seen in this role. That's an added benefit, especially because it makes Anna and the KIng's iconic duet "Shall We Dance?" all the more enjoyable."

          Movie review: Steve Carell pulls double duty in ‘Despicable Me 3’    
It's downright despicable what Illumination Entertainment has done to the once-promising "Despicable Me" franchise. The third entry arrives in no better shape than either the second movie or its spinoff, "Minions." Despite a double performance by the always-entertaining Steve Carell, "Despicable Me 3" is, well, uninspired — except for the 80s music that'll keep Mom and Dad awake. Madonna's "Get into the Groove" is always welcome. Directors and franchise veterans, Pierre Coffin, Eric Guillon [...]

          Canadian PM Trudeau is not a friend of all God’s children   

Trudeau’s first cabinet was Africanless. Africans in Canada, from the continent and here questioned this move.  Many felt that the younger Trudeau took us for granted because his father Pierre Elliott Trudeau (October 18, 1919 – September 28, 2000) “opened” the doors for immigrants from the Caribbean and Africa. Eventually he did appoint Somali Toronto MP Ahmed Hussen to the federal cabinet as immigration minister.

Trudeau did appoint Indian-born Sikh Harjit Sajjan, MP for Vancouver South, minister of defence. Sikhs have a significantly different history in Canada than Africans.  The Sikh community is represented in all professional fields: medical, legal, technological, academic. Africans came kicking and screaming to the Western Hemisphere. Recently he has been questioned about “fibbing” about being the leader of a battle in Afghanistan. Sajjan said yearly defence spending will swell by more than 70 per cent, from $18.9 billion in 2016-17 to $32.7 billion in 2026-27. He promised $62.3 billion in new spending over 20 years.

Bardish Chagger is another India- born Canadian politician who is the current Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Minister of Small Business and Tourism.  Chagger was elected as a Liberal member of the House of Commons of Canada in 2015.  She is the first female Leader of the Government in the House of Commons by Trudeau.

Amarjeet Sohi is an Indian-Canadian politician, currently the Member of Parliament for Edmonton and the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities in the federal cabinet. He narrowly beat out strong community advocate Nigerian-born Chinwe Okelu.

Maryam Monsef is an Afghan Canadian politician, a Liberal member the House of Commons in 2015. She was previously the Minister of Democratic Institutions and president of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada until January 10, 2017.

Monsef has not had an easy ride. According to Wikipedia: “Monsef has been criticized for stating that she was born in Afghanistan, when in fact she was born in Iran. When this was revealed in September 2016, some commentators pointed out that this could lead to revocation of her Canadian citizenship and potential deportation, while others have criticized the absurdity of the present law or decried the importation of birtherism into Canadian politics. In an interview at that time, former MP Dean Del Mastro said that political workers in the 2014 municipal and 2015 federal campaigns knew she was not born in Afghanistan, but chose not to make an issue of it.”

Navdeep Singh Bains, the new minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development is a Canadian born Indian.

Canada’s role in Haiti should never be forgotten. Back in the day I discussed Haiti on the Black Commentator in an article: “Canada's Crimes Against Haiti” in   the October 27, 2005 issue. After reading Yves Engler and Anthony Fenton’s  volumeCanada in Haiti’, I pointed out: “The chapter ‘Responsibility to Protect or A Made in Ottawa Coup?’ points out the coup against Aristide was actually planned on Canadian soil. From January 31-February 1, 2003, Canada’s Secretary of State for Latin America and La Francophonie, Denis Paradis, played host to a high-level roundtable meeting dubbed, The Ottawa Initiative on Haiti. Surprise, surprise, no representative of Haiti’s elected government was invited. However, Otto Reich, then President George W. Bush’s appointee as Assistant Secretary State for the Western Hemisphere, was in attendance. Paradis leaked the fact that this meeting took place to journalist Michael Vastel, who reported the meeting in the March 15, 2003 edition of L’Actualite magazine. Another chapter, ‘Using NGOs to Destroy Democracy and the Canadian Military Connection’ exposes the shameful role played by many Canadian NGOs.”

Trudeau is a self-proclaimed “feminist”. The court is still out on this matter. A recent article in the British based Guardian newspaper questioned the Canadian Prime Minister: “A slight note of exasperation crept into Justin Trudeau’s voice, suggesting that this was a topic he had broached many times before. ‘I’m going to keep saying loud and clearly that I am a feminist until it is met with a shrug,’ he declared to an audience at the United Nations in New York.”

His words sparked delight around the world. But one year on, Trudeau’s heady promises have run into the realities of government, prompting the question: has electing a self-described feminist to helm of the country translated into real change for Canadian women?

Canada’s prime minister is moving the Great White North further to the right on foreign affairs. Trudeau’s father Pierre Elliot Trudeau opened the doors to draft resisters including myself who refused to fight against the Vietnamese people. I saw Africans in America and the Vietnamese as colonial subjects. Africans in the United States were colonized by Uncle Sam and the Vietnamese by the French. Wiki pointed out: “While Canada had previously participated in military action against Iraq  in the Gulf War of 1991, it refused to declare war against Iraq without United Nations approval.

The Iraq War began with the United States-led 2003 invasion. The Government of Canada did not at any time formally declare war against Iraq, and the level and nature of this participation, which changed over time, was controversial.

Prime Minister Jean Chrétien said on 10 October 2002 that Canada would, in fact, be part of a military coalition to invade Iraq if it were sanctioned by the United Nations. However, when the United States and the United Kingdom subsequently withdrew their diplomatic efforts to gain that UN sanction, Jean Chrétien announced in Parliament on 17 March 2003 that Canada would not participate in the pending invasion.”

However, this is not the full story. The “Big White Folks” as Paul Robeson called them speak with forked tongues. “Nevertheless, he offered the US and its soldiers his moral support. However, according to classified U.S. documents released by Wikileaks, a high-ranking Canadian official may have secretly promised to clandestinely support the invasion. Two days earlier, a quarter million people in Montreal had marched against the impending war. Major anti-war demonstrations had taken place in several other Canadian cities.” Chrétien’s moves had more to do with the growing opposition to the invasion than his political morality.  

The not so great white north has a checkered history in the African continent. Canada joined the imperialists and played with the white checkers. They played a significant role in the assassinations of Patrice Lumumba, Maurice Mpolo, and Joseph Okito on January 21, 1961. Ottawa came up on the wrong side of history on the question of the Congo. Yves Engler author of the illuminating volume, Canada in Africa: 300 years of aid and exploitation, pointed out: “Siding with Washington, Ottawa promoted ONUC) and UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold’s controversial anti-Lumumba position. ONUC was established in July 1960 to ensure the withdrawal of Belgian forces. 1,900 Canadian troops participated in the UN mission between 1960 and 1964, making this country’s military one of its more active members. There were almost always more Canadian officers at ONUC headquarters than those of any other nationality and the Canadians were concentrated in militarily important logistical positions including chief operations officer and chief signals officer.”

Canada opposed anticolonial struggles in Africa, supported apartheid South Africa and Idi Amin’s coup against Milton Obote (December 28 1925- October 10, 2005) who had led Uganda to independence in 1962 from British colonialism. He was overthrown by Amin in 1971. Canada played a role in the ousting of Lumumba in the Congo by the CIA, Belgium and Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu Wa Za Banga aka Joseph Mobutu and Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah.

The Great White North pressed African states to follow neoliberal policies, which have benefitted Canadian corporations. The Canadian International Development Perform points out: “Canada is a global mining giant and a leading player in Africa’s mining sector. 70% of the equity capital raised globally by the mining industry was raised on the Toronto (TSX) and Venture (TSXV) exchanges. Of the $10.3 billion in equity raised for mining on the TSX and TSXV in 2012 $1.9 billion or 18.5% was for projects in Latin America while another $1.7 billion or 16.5% was for projects in Africa.”   Canada played a role in the violence the Congo, Rwanda and Somali.  

Canada does have a Black Radical Tradition. However, we cannot expect Corporate Canada or the Black Misleadership Class to tell the story. That is on us on the Black Left.

Beneath you lie two miles of ocean -- a bottomlessness, for all practical purposes, an infinity of blue. ... A thousand coruscating shafts of sunlight probe it, illuminating nothing.

--Kenneth Brower, "The Destruction of Dolphins," [2]The Atlantic, July 1989
          For Our Consideration: Becky, Kanye, and Bey: JAY-Z’s 4:44 is an event album worthy of the name   

Every JAY-Z album since 2003 has been an event. There was the retirement saga of The Black Album, then the comeback of Kingdom Come; the surprise film-inspired return to form of American Gangster and then the overwrought, trilogy-concluding Blueprint 3. Watch The Throne and Magna Carta Holy Grail both felt like transmissions from deep within some golden Illuminati cave, with Hova casually obsessing over Rothkos and wine that costs more than your mortgage.

And so the new 4:44 arrives with all the baggage of being another weighty, “post-retirement” JAY-Z release, discussed in pre-release missives using the same terms as Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods; it is, after all, only available via cellphone carrier Sprint and Hov’s reportedly slow-moving streaming music service, Tidal. But now that it’s out, it’s an event for a much different reason: It’s fucking good. At 10 tracks and 36 minutes ...


          3 Higher Ed Lessons from ‘Shattered'   

Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes

Published in April of 2017.

Shattered is the first high quality post-mortem of the 2016 presidential campaign.  Of course we are all looking forward to the next Game Change installment in the Halperin and Heilemann presidential campaign trilogy (early 2018), but Shattered should be welcome by political junkies of all ideological orientations.

The reason that Allen and Parnes were able to get out gate so quickly with their insider campaign account is focus.  The reporters were embedded with the Clinton campaign.  They conducted over 100 interviews on background, and were trusted by campaign staffers due to an earlier book (sympathetic) book on Clinton’s years as Secretary of State.

Whatever one thinks of Clinton or Trump, and however we might try to make sense of the election, Shattered is an illuminating read.  For Hillary supporters, the inside story of how badly the campaign went off the rails is incredibly depressing to absorb.

Shattered is not a book about the policies, beliefs, or even the character of the candidates.  Rather, it is a story of organizational ineptitude.  Of good people - smart people - who are unable to find a way to rise above an ultimately dysfunctional campaign organization.

Read through the lens of organizational effectiveness (or failure), Shattered can be understood as a cautionary tale for leaders of every organization.  Including, and perhaps especially, higher education organizations.

There are 3 lessons that I took from Shattered that I’ve been thinking about as they apply to higher ed:

Lesson 1 - The Danger of Overestimating the Value of Analytics:

We learn in Shattered that Clinton’s campaign manger, Robby Mook, built the campaign’s strategy around data analytics.  Decisions about where to spend money, where to send staff, and even how to craft the campaign messages were data-driven.

An important distinction here is the difference, as Allen and Parnes describe, between traditional polling and data analytics.  Where polling relies on sampling to discover information about a particular population, campaign analytics relies on geographically localized demographic, economic, opinion, and other data derived from secondary sources.

Analysis of existing data sources is cheaper than conducting statistically valid polls.  The new guard of the Democratic establishment was convinced of the validity and reliability of drawing conclusions from analytics.  They thought that polling should only be reserved for special cases, as the return on investment (ROI) of polling did not justify its costs.

In higher ed, we have developed a similar obsession with analytics.  Any leader who mouths the words “In God I trust, all others must bring data” will be widely heralded as a forward looking genius.  We tell each other constantly that what can’t be measured can’t be changed - and we push and push for measurable outcomes and quantifiable policies.

The Clinton campaign would have been better off to find more a balance between the art and science of politics.  They should have been as equally skeptical of the analytics as they were of the gut feelings of more seasoned politicians.  (Bill Clinton saw that the campaign was disconnected from non-college educated white men, and the cost for that disconnection, in a visceral way that caused him much alarm - but very little ability to change the strategy).

How many higher ed people are brave enough today to call for moderation in our headlong quest to measure everything, and to make all strategic (and teaching and learning) decisions based on what the analytics tell us?

Lesson 2 - The Necessity of Open Communication:

Perhaps the most frustrating element of reading Shattered is learning just how poorly the people in the Clinton campaign communicated with one another.

These were dedicated, talented, and committed professionals.  The poor communication was not primary the result of outsize egos or personal agendas.  Somehow, and in some way, the flow of honest information within and across the Clinton campaign became impeded.

If academic culture is of risk of anything, it is at risk of communication failure.  Communications, both internal and external, has to be amongst the hardest things that postsecondary organizations must do.  We all think that we are good at communicating - after all we make a living in developing and sharing our ideas - but it is this very belief that puts us most at danger.

We in higher ed would be wise to understand that if we want to have effective internal and external communications that we will need to listen to experts in this area.  When it comes to open internal information sharing - the failure of the Clinton campaign - what may be necessary is for higher leaders to simply make this a priority.  Real resources, thought, and a growth mindset must be brought to the work of internal communications.

We can’t assume that we will do it any better than the good people of the Clinton campaign attempted.  Everyone starts with good intentions - and everybody thinks that they are acting in the best intentions of the organization (or the candidate).  The necessity of an open, transparent, and vigorous sharing of ideas and opinions is too important to be left to chance.

Lesson 3 - The Imperative to Prepare for Black Swans:

It is perhaps easy to read the Clinton campaign as dysfunctional given the results of the election.  If Hillary had won, then the campaign organization may just as easily been interpreted as quirky, productively contentious, and creative.  In reading Shattered, I kept thinking that Allen and Parnes were engaging in some post-hoc narrative building.  That the story would have been more convincing if written before as opposed to after 11/8/16.

That worry aside, what can’t be denied is that the Clinton campaign was up against a Black Swan in Trump.  The smart money was always on a Jeb Bush candidacy.  Or barring a Bush, at least a “normal” candidate.  The Clinton campaign proved to be fragile in the face of a competitor for which the normal rules of politics never seemed to apply.

The lesson for our colleges and universities may be that we never really know where the true threats will emerge.  We need to focus on resiliency in the face of any eventuality, rather than responses to threats that we think that we understand.

What a strategy based on anti-fragility looks like I’m not sure.  The answer is probably different for every college and every university.  My sense is that such a strategy would focus on core strengths rather than perceived current market conditions.

What books have you recently read that have nothing to do with higher ed, yet are perhaps amenable to reading with a higher ed lens?

          Distorted lessons from the Philippine-American War   
Published July 25, 2008
INQUIRER.net

Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama was touring the Middle East when a well-known columnist for a major US newspaper tried to point the way out of the mess in Iraq by citing lessons from another American military misadventure more than a century ago – in the Philippines.

Unfortunately, conservative commentator Michael Medved's piece for USA Today, "Filipino war's lesson for Iraq," draws distorted, even dangerous, lessons from the tragedy in our homeland.

He begins by drawing parallels between the current presidential race and the 1900 contest between William Jennings Bryan and William McKinley. Medved describes Bryan as the "handsome young Democratic nominee" known as "the most spellbinding orator of his generation" who promised "dramatic change to correct economic injustice" and an end to the American occupation of the Philippines. He was up against the older McKinley, a Civil War veteran and avid supporter of the occupation whom Medved portrayed as the "tough, fight-it-out Republican" and "a hero in his youth (three decades earlier) in the Civil War."

Echoes of Obama versus McCain indeed.

But McCain probably would not appreciate being too closely compared to McKinley, given that US president's bizarre, even creepy, account of how he came to realize that America must occupy the Philippines. In one of the oddest anecdotes in the history of the US presidency, McKinley recalled how he "went down on my knees and prayed Almighty God for light and guidance," which made him see that "there was nothing left for us to do but … to educate the Filipinos, and uplift and civilize and Christianize them."

(Apparently, McKinley did not get a memo telling him that the Philippines was then a staunchly Catholic nation -- another reason for McCain to balk at any close identification with the former president, given his own foreign affairs faux pas like mixing up Sunnis and Shiites and referring to a non-existent Iraq-Pakistan border.)

Still, it's not surprising that Medved and other conservatives are hoping for a repeat of that chapter in US history: After all, the older, more hawkish Republican McKinley won that election against the "inexperienced but charismatic anti-imperialist Democrat."

But Filipinos and Filipino Americans should find Medved's version of the Philippine-American War troubling. "This nearly forgotten conflict deserves renewed attention today since the parallels with our present predicament count as both eerie and illuminating," he writes.

True enough.

But then Medved recasts the bloody conflict as a war that the United States "stumbled into" but from which emerged a free and happy nation ever so grateful for American generosity and compassion. He cites former President Manuel L. Quezon's famous quote, "Damn the Americans! Why don't they tyrannize us more?"

Medved essentially is asking: Now why in the world can't we do that again in Iraq?

"Our failure to 'tyrannize' our Iraqi allies could similarly destroy the chances of the Islamist terrorists who oppose us," he writes. "The outcome in today's Middle East remains uncertain, but our painful Philippine experience a century ago suggests that a positive result is still possible through a combination of public patience, battlefield brilliance and compassionate determination to provide better lives and freedom to the far-away people who became the war's chief victims."

I nearly choked when I read this for while Medved made a passing reference to water cure, the notorious torture technique the US military used against Filipino independence forces (and used in Iraq under the name "water boarding"), and while he noted that at least 200,000 Filipinos died in the conflict (other historians cite a higher figure), he downplayed the more sordid chapters of the Philippine-American War: the massacres, the brutal military campaigns, the suppression of basic Filipino civil and human rights.

Medved writes that "for the most part, America's volunteer troops maintained high morale, resenting anti-war activists back home because they understood this agitation encouraged the enemy." I suspect "high morale" had nothing to do with what happened in the town of Balangiga, Samar when General Jake Smith told his men to turn the island into a "howling wilderness" so that "even birds could not live there."

"Kill and burn! The more you kill and burn, the better you will please me,"' he ordered. Asked to clarify who the troops' targets were among the population, the general replied: "Everything over 10."

Medved also ignores the blatant racism of US political leaders led by President William Howard Taft, who served as governor-general of the islands, and who called Filipinos "our little brown brothers.''

Then there was the former U.S. superintendent who helped set up an American-style public school system in the Philippines who argued that the Filipinos "are children, and childlike, do not know what is best for them. . . By the very fact of our superiority of civilization and our greater capacity for industrial activity, we are bound to exercise over them a profound social influence.''

Medved's piece reminded me of the now despicable concept of the “white man's burden,” that famous exhortation to Western domination. The phrase was actually coined by British poet Rudyard Kipling during this period in support of the American colonization of the Philippines and other former Spanish colonies. Reading just a part of the poem today would make one cringe.

"Take up the White Man's burden
Send forth the best ye breed
Go, bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait, in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild
Your new-caught sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child..."

The great American writer Mark Twain was so horrified by US atrocities in our homeland that he called the $20 million the United States paid for the Philippines an "entrance fee into society -- the Society of Sceptered Thieves."

"The White Man's Burden has been sung,"' Twain wrote. "Who will sing the Brown Man's?"

Twain also once said, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme." In his bid to justify an unpopular war in Iraq, Medved came up with a mangled account of a dark chapter in our history that has neither rhyme nor reason.

          Diono Easy View Plus Mirror   

When travelling in the car and your little one is rear facing, it’s hard to safely check on them. The Diono Easy View Plus overcomes this and provides the perfect way to see your baby during the day or at night.

The Easy View Plus™ provides an even larger crystal clear viewing mirror than our standard Easy View back seat mirror. It also has a light so you can check your baby in the dark, ideal for the shorter days during the winter.

Gradual illumination and gentle diming prevent startling baby. The light operates with a remote control (2 AAA batteries required) which can be kept close at hand in the front of the car.

The Easy View Plus back seat mirror rotates 360 degrees and pivots on a ball and socket. This allows for the perfect viewing angle without needing to move the rear view mirror and means the mirror does not have to be positioned above baby.

The Easy View Plus back seat mirror attaches with adjustable straps onto the headrest and does not block rear visibility.

          'Sunday in the Park With George' is ravishing; 'Psycho' at the Heights   

From your first view of the stage (white surfaces, white frame, white curtain pooled on the floor) to your last (the cast in their jewel-toned costumes, taking their bows), the Guthrie’s production of “Sunday in the Park With George” is ravishing. Written with playwright James Lapine, Stephen Sondheim’s musical about artists, their art, and their process – and also, peripherally, their lives – should be lovely to look at. So kudos to scenic designer Jan Chambers, who created a world from horizontal and vertical lines. To costume designer Toni-Leslie James for spectacular work throughout, most notably Yvonne’s (Ann Michels’) pink skirt with its cascade of billows down the back. To lighting designer Jane Cox, who stippled the set with color and made everything glow. To projection designer Caite Hevner for gorgeous projections and playful animations.

Directed by Joseph Haj, “Sunday in the Park” ends the thrust stage part of the Guthrie’s 2016-17 mainstage season, the first shaped entirely by Haj in his role as artistic director. The summer musical is a fairly recent tradition for the Guthrie, and this is the theater’s first-ever Sondheim, unless you count “Sweeney Todd” and “Merrily We Roll Along” at the Guthrie Lab in 1999 and 2001.

It’s a musical in which nothing much happens. When people break up, they sing their frustration, then move on. When they die, they do it offstage. The main characters – French post-impressionist painter George Seurat and his modern but made-up great-grandson, a multimedia artist also named George – are all about their work and clumsy at relationships. Original George is a color theory nerd who invents a new way of painting, is rejected by his peers, completes just six major canvases in his lifetime and never sells one. Modern George seems most concerned with securing commissions and connecting with wealthy patrons. Both are terrible boyfriends.

The main and most memorable part of the musical is Act I, about original George and the making of his masterpiece “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” (which hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago, just down the road). Act II jumps forward a century to modern George and his latest work, “Chromalume #7,” a machine that blows a fuse during the opening. Act I is half again as long as Act II, clocking in at 1 hour 20 minutes against 54 minutes. The main point of Act II seems to be that modern George learns from the past.

Randy Harrison, probably best known as Justin Taylor in “Queer as Folk,” and Erin Mackey, who starred as Nellie in last summer’s musical “South Pacific,” lead a cast of 17, most actors playing two roles. Mackey is both original George’s lover and muse, the cutely named Dot, and modern George’s grandmother, Marie. The other characters are all people from the painting, given loosely sketched, invented identities and personalities: a pair of soldiers, two young women (both named Celeste) who flirt with the soldiers, an old lady (imagined as Seurat’s mother) and her nurse, a cranky boatman, a baker, a snarky successful painter and his wife, a young girl, a coachman. T. Mychael Rambo takes two memorable turns, first as a crass American and then as a wealthy arts patron. When the cast comes together in a tableau of the painting, it’s magical, a feat made more challenging by the thrust stage.

Fans of the original Broadway cast recording with Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters won’t be disappointed with the singing at the Guthrie. Mackey is up to the demands of the tricky title song, and the shift to singing the elderly, frail Marie in Act II. Harrison nails the pointillistic “Color and Light” and the dramatic “Finishing the Hat.” The ensemble songs – “It’s Hot Up Here” and all three “Sundays” – are passionately sung. For part of the time, we glimpse the orchestra, led by Mark Hartman, behind a scrim at the back of the stage, a nice touch.

And whether you’ve seen the original Seurat painting in books or in person – it’s huge, over 10 feet wide and 6 feet high, made up of millions of dots that somehow coalesce into a shimmering, sunlit image – you’ll never see it the same way again.

“Sunday in the Park With George” continues through Aug. 20. FMI and tickets (start at $34).

          MEDIATIZACIÓN DE LA ORALIDAD: LA PERVERSIÓN DEL JUICIO EN LA PRÁCTICA JUDICIAL PENAL CENTROAMERICANA   
MEDIATIZACIÓN[1] DE LA ORALIDAD:
LA PERVERSIÓN DEL JUICIO EN LA PRÁCTICA JUDICIAL PENAL CENTROAMERICANA*

Dr. José María Tijerino Pacheco

SUMARIO: I.-La oralidad en la reforma procesal penal iberoamericana. II.-La mediatización de la oralidad. II.-El germen napoleónico de la mediatización de la oralidad. IV.- La contaminación de los códigos centroamericanos. V.- Las razones de la mediatización. VI.- Posibles soluciones.


I.- LA ORALIDAD EN LA REFORMA PROCESAL PENAL IBEROAMERICANA

Cada vez que un equipo de técnicos promotores o facilitadores de la reforma procesal penal tuvo que responder a la inevitable pregunta de cuál forma procedimental recomendaban, en cualquiera de los países del subcontinente que se haya planteado la necesidad de modernizar su sistema de justicia penal, la respuesta fue contundente: el procedimiento oral y público.
A continuación los entendidos se hacían lenguas sobre las ventajas de la oralidad y arremetían contra el procedimiento escrito asociándolo con el sistema inquisitorial y con regímenes autoritarios. La oralidad iba de la mano con los nuevos vientos de democratización de nuestras menguadas repúblicas y fue defendida con el mismo ardoroso entusiasmo con que se defienden las ideas asociadas con la libertad.
Sin saberlo, quizás, pero seguramente intuyéndolo, extrayéndolo del subconsciente colectivo latinoamericano, rebrotaba en las mentes y los corazones todo un ideario liberal que fue reprimido aquí, allá y acullá con dureza innumerables veces, cuyo triunfo fue escamoteado otras tantas por sus propios líderes una vez que habían accedido al poder, que fue corrompido hasta llegar a justificar su antítesis, pero que nunca se extinguió porque ha significado a lo largo de dos siglos de historia patria la esperanza republicana para las mentes más esclarecidas y para los hombres más probos entre nuestros conciudadanos.

a) Los ideólogos de la reforma
Siguiendo de cerca las huellas de BENTHAM, FRAMARINO DEI MALATESTA, CHIOVENDA y CALAMANDREI, los maestros argentinos ALFREDO VÉLEZ MARICONDE y SEBASTIÁN SOLER se expresan así de la oralidad en la Exposición de Motivos del Proyecto de Código de Procedimiento Penal de la provincia argentina de Córdoba, de 1939, que da inicio a la reforma procesal penal iberoamericana:
“La oralidad es una de las reformas fundamentales de este Proyecto, y ha de cambiar sustancialmente la fase externa del proceso, dándole vida nueva y poniéndolo en directo contacto con la realidad. Incorporado a las legislaciones modernas, este carácter es un corolario o consecuencia indispensable del principio de la originalidad de la prueba, en cuya virtud aquélla debe ser directamente recibida por el tribunal sentenciador, toda vez que la palabra es la manifestación natural y originaria del pensamiento humano. Es la forma racional de descubrir la verdad, base de la justicia, facilitando la reproducción lógica del hecho delictuoso...”
A la vinculación de la oralidad con la originalidad de la prueba o inmediación se agregaban las benéficas consecuencias de la celeridad, la economía procesal y la publicidad:
“Pero el juicio oral no solo ‘asegura una justicia intrínsicamente mejor´ al favorecer el descubrimiento de la verdad mediante ‘el contacto directo y continuo del tribunal sentenciador con los elementos de convicción’, sino que también favorece la celeridad del juicio, mediante la concentración de la actividad procesal en una o pocas audiencias inmediatas, simplifica y economiza la actividad jurisdiccional, y permite la verdadera publicidad...”
Y la no menos importante consecuencia del principio de contradicción o bilateralidad, “principio fundamental, fuerza motriz y garantía suprema” del proceso para CALAMANDREI[2]:
“El juicio oral y público permite la actuación efectiva de los intereses individuales y sociales que el proceso debe tutelar. La lucha que se desarrolla en la audiencia, entre la acusación y la defensa y ante el Tribunal que ha de juzgar, coloca a esos intereses en paridad de situación jurídica, de donde la libre discusión y el examen bilateral de todos los actos realiza el principio de contradicción y favorece al mismo tiempo el descubrimiento de la verdad”.
Ideas sobre las que VÉLEZ MARICONDE insiste en su obra Derecho Procesal Penal:
“El procedimiento oral es infinitamente superior al escrito porque asegura en máximo grado la inmediación, es decir, un contacto directo y simultáneo de los sujetos procesales con los medios de prueba en que debe basarse la discusión plena de las partes y la decisión definitiva del juzgador”[3].
Y que, llevadas al tema de la prueba pericial, lo lleva a decir:
“Con respecto a los peritos, los efectos de la oralidad son notables y se advierten en los asuntos complejos, donde el médico o el contador, por ejemplo, presentan extensos informes no siempre fáciles de interpretar... La presencia del perito facilita la interpretación o su decisión franca, disipa las dudas, permite establecer a ciencia cierta la situación fáctica sometida a juicio. Lo que antes era oscuro y difícil resulta fácil y meridiano, incluso –también en esta clase de prueba- por el aporte de los defensores”[4].
Sobre la relación juicio oral y bilateralidad CLARIÁ OLMEDO, discípulo destacado de VÉLEZ MARICONDE, diría a dos décadas de vigencia del Código:
“Bajo la dirección del Tribunal, las partes se controlan recíprocamente y discuten entre sí, proporcionando argumentos al juzgador en función de lo que acaban de percibir de manera directa y con un mínimo de interrupciones”[5].
Así queda claramente expuesto el pensamiento de los ideólogos de la reforma procesal penal iberoamericana sobre la oralidad. Su entusiasmo no deja entrever ninguna sombra, ninguna duda, ninguna desviación sobre lo que debe ser un procedimiento oral.

b) Los modelos
Las fuentes principales del Código de Córdoba de 1939 fueron dos códigos italianos de elaborada estructura: el de 1913 y el de 1930.
Los detractores de este primer código “moderno” iberoamericano enfatizaban que su modelo era el Código de 1930, o Código Rocco, llamado así por el ministro de justicia del régimen fascista que promovió su promulgación. Se pretendía de esa manera desacreditar la obra de VÉLEZ MARICONDE y SOLER asociándola al fascismo en un momento histórico en que éste aparecía como la principal amenaza para los valores propios de la civilización occidental.
Pero dos cosas eran ciertas:
a) Los autores del proyecto cordobés también tuvieron en cuenta el código de 1913, de clara tendencia liberal;
b) El Código Rocco, aunque obra del fascismo e influenciado por éste sobre todo en materia de libertad personal del imputado, no significó una ruptura con el sistema establecido por el código de 1913, sino la búsqueda de corrección de deficiencias técnicas de éste que ya habían sido señaladas antes del advenimiento de Mussolini al poder en 1922. Es un código que responde bien a la idea bifásica del proceso predominante entonces en la Europa continental, cuyo peligro para la oralidad no había sido aún suficientemente advertido.
Promulgado que fuera el código cordobés de 1939, su aplicación exitosa suscitó entusiasmo en la República Argentina, cuyas provincias lo tomaron a su vez como modelo. Una a una se fueron sumando todas las provincias argentinas a la reforma hasta dejar sola a la capital federal, en donde la oposición de quienes seguían prefiriendo el procedimiento escrito, como ODERIGO, demoró hasta la última década del siglo XX su sustitución por el procedimiento oral.
En 1970 Córdoba vuelve a ponerse a la cabeza del movimiento reformista con la promulgación del Código Procesal Penal, cuyo proyecto fue de VÉLEZ MARICONDE, quien logra persuadir a los costarricenses para que adopten el nuevo código cordobés como modelo inmediato del Código de Procedimientos Penales de 1973. La reforma procesal penal latinoamericana rebasó entonces las fronteras argentinas y sentó sus reales en tierra centroamericana.
En Costa Rica el éxito fue inmediato e incuestionable. La justicia penal, Cenicienta a la sazón en ese país, deslumbró con sus ropajes nuevos y suscitó una corriente nueva de pensamiento jurídico dentro del país que aún está lejos de agotarse.
El Código Procesal Penal Modelo para Iberoamérica, que empezó a elaborarse por encargo del Instituto Iberoamericano de Derecho Procesal hecho en sus cuartas jornadas, en 1967, y que no fue presentado sino hasta 1988, es el reconocimiento del mencionado organismo a las bondades del modelo cordobés, aunque adaptándolo a las nuevas corrientes de pensamiento, sobre todo al proponer la introducción del principio de oportunidad en el ejercicio de la acción penal y la sustitución, aunque no total, de la instrucción judicial por un procedimiento preparatorio a cargo del Ministerio Público, que en la aplicación de los códigos que lo han adoptado ha acabado siendo una verdadera instrucción, nada sumaria, a cargo del fiscal, que es tomada como parte del proceso, aunque haya desaparecido de ella casi todo vestigio de aquel actus trium personarun del que ya hablaba BULGARO en el siglo XII.

c) Los códigos de la región
En el momento actual todos los códigos procesales penales centroamericanos establecen el procedimiento oral.
Escuetamente lo hizo el código costarricense de 1973 en su art. 359:
“El debate será oral y público, bajo pena de nulidad”.
Siguiendo muy de cerca al modelo iberoamericano, el código guatemalteco de 1992 es muy preciso en su art. 362:
“El debate será oral. En esa forma se producirán las declaraciones del acusado, de los órganos de prueba y las intervenciones de todas las personas que participan en él. Las resoluciones del tribunal se dictarán verbalmente, quedando notificados todos por su emisión, pero constarán en el acta del debate...”.
El art. 329 del código salvadoreño de 1996 coincide con el art. 333 del código costarricense del mismo año en una redacción defectuosa, porque da pie a una interpretación muy restringida del concepto de oralidad:
“La audiencia será oral; de esa forma deberán declarar el imputado y las demás personas que participen en ella”.
Podría ser interpretado este texto, cuya repetición revela una inmerecida fortuna, en el erróneo sentido de que en el juicio oral sólo hay declaraciones del imputado y testigos, y no también informes de peritos, solicitudes y alegatos de las partes y resoluciones del tribunal.
En contraposición, el art. 310 del código hondureño del año 2000 parece exagerar la oralidad:
“Las declaraciones del imputado, de los testigos y peritos y las demás intervenciones que se produzcan durante el debate, así como las resoluciones o sentencias que dicte el respectivo Tribunal, serán orales...”.
No obstante, la lectura del art. 139 permite aclarar que por “sentencias” debemos entender en este contexto no las que resuelven las causas, sino las sentencias interlocutorias “que pongan término a cuestiones incidentales que requieran de previo y especial pronunciamiento”.
El código nicaragüense de 2001 es el que mayor énfasis hace en la oralidad. En tal grado que incorpora este principio, netamente procedimental, a los principios y garantías procesales de su título preliminar:
“Art. 13 Principio de oralidad. Bajo sanción de nulidad, las diferentes comparecencias, audiencias y los juicios penales previstos por este Código serán orales y públicos..”
“La práctica de la prueba y los alegatos de la acusación y la defensa se producirán ante el juez o jurado competente que ha de dictar la sentencia o veredicto, sin perjuicio de lo dispuesto respecto a la prueba anticipada.”
“El juicio tendrá lugar de manera concentrada y continua, en presencia del juez, el jurado, en su caso, y las partes.”
Reitera la oralidad en el art. 247, que es un precepto clave de la parte correspondiente a los actos de investigación, anteriores al proceso, bajo el sugerente epígrafe de “Forma de llevar al Juicio los resultados de los actos de investigación”, dispone:
“La información de interés para la resolución de la causa, que conste en actas u otros documentos redactados para guardar memoria de los actos de investigación, se incorporará al Juicio a través de la declaración testimonial de quienes directamente la obtuvieron mediante percepción personal.”
“Los expertos no oficiales que hayan intervenido en los actos de investigación adquirirán la condición de peritos si son declarados idóneos como tales por el juez.”
Lo que en síntesis dispone este artículo es que para incorporar al proceso las fuentes de prueba hay que hacer uso de los medios de prueba. Las fuentes de prueba son obtenidas mediante los actos de investigación, pero sólo pueden ser llevadas al proceso mediante actos de prueba.
El segundo párrafo del artículo en cuestión, concordado con el art. 203 que reserva la intervención del perito como tal sólo para el juicio, complementa la idea expuesta en el primer párrafo en el sentido de que lo hallado por los expertos, oficiales o no oficiales (no hay ninguna diferencia entre ellos en cuanto a la forma de incorporar al proceso sus hallazgos), debe incorporarse al juicio mediante la prueba pericial rendida personalmente y de viva voz por el perito.
Reaparece en el código nicaragüense el principio de oralidad en forma expresa en dos artículos correspondientes a la audiencia del juicio:
Primero en el art. 281, que establece los principios propios de esta fase:
“El Juicio se realizará sobre la base de la acusación, en forma oral, pública, contradictoria y concentrada.”
Coincide este precepto con el del art. 326 del código costarricense de 1996, su fuente, que categóricamente declara:
“El juicio es la fase esencial del proceso. Se realizará sobre la base de la acusación, en forma oral, pública, contradictoria y continua.”
Culmina el código de Nicaragua su consagración de la oralidad en el art. 287, que en su prolija exposición, muy semejante a la de los citados arts. 362 del código de Guatemala y 310 del código de Honduras, denota un esfuerzo por no dejar intersticio por el cual pueda infiltrarse la duda o la corruptela de la “escriturización”:
“La audiencia pública se desarrollará en forma oral, tanto en lo relativo a los alegatos y argumentaciones de las partes como a las declaraciones del acusado, a la recepción de las pruebas y, en general, a toda intervención de quienes participen en ella. Durante el Juicio, las resoluciones serán fundadas y dictadas verbalmente en forma clara y audible por el tribunal y se entenderán notificadas desde el momento de su pronunciamiento, dejándose constancia en el acta del Juicio...”

II.- LA MEDIATIZACIÓN DE LA ORALIDAD
No obstante los anteriores preceptos que consagran el principio de oralidad en todos los códigos del área, generalmente claros y precisos, desde muy recién instaurado el juicio oral se fue advirtiendo en la práctica judicial centroamericana un atisbo de retorno del procedimiento escrito propio de los códigos derogados.
Quizás, más bien, se tratara de la pervivencia de los viejos hábitos, del hombre viejo que todos llevamos dentro, del jurista forjado en la práctica inquisitorial tan bien conocido por muchos de nosotros.
Como lo denunciara en España MONTERO AROCA[6] en relación con la práctica judicial de su país, en Centroamérica se empezó a confundir los actos de investigación con los actos de prueba y la prueba documental con la documentación de los actos de investigación, es decir, con las actas, y por esa puerta falsa se fue introduciendo en el juicio lo que no podía ingresar por la frontera puerta de la oralidad.
Debido a esa gravísima confusión conceptual no se cita a los peritos para que informen de viva voz, sino que se leen sus dictámenes, sin posibilidad alguna de contradecirlos o cuestionarlos u obtener aclaración sobre algún punto oscuro o dudoso. No hay afán por hacer llegar a los testigos, porque se cuenta ya con sus declaraciones rendidas ante escribientes, secretarios o amanuenses cansados, deformados por la reiterada y rutinaria práctica del oficio, que interpretan o pretenden interpretar lo que el testigo, ya sea éste ilustrado o rústico, preciso o vago, veraz o mendaz, distraído o alerta, con buena memoria o desmemoriado, resuelto o tímido, sereno o nervioso, ha dicho o ha tratado de decir.
La prueba documental, henchida a más no poder como la rana de la fábula, ha pasado a convertirse en regina probatorum. Todo cabe en ella, todo lo devora ella para satisfacer su insaciable voracidad de mastodonte. Es la venganza del inquisitorialismo, la exaltación de las actas (Quod non est in actis non est in mundo), o, peor aún, es la traición a la reforma procesal penal iberoamericana.
En ocasiones, nada infrecuentes, se llega al extremo de que no sólo se incorporan al debate piezas enteras de la etapa sumarial o instrucción, sino que por acuerdo de las partes o, más bien, de sus abogados, se dan por incorporadas sin lectura previa. Se aniquila así respecto a esas pretendidas pruebas no sólo la oralidad, sino también totalmente la publicidad del juicio. La justicia vuelve a ser escrita y semisecreta, lo que equivale a decir opaca y sospechosa.

III.- EL GERMEN NAPOLEÓNICO DE LA MEDIATIZACIÓN DE LA ORALIDAD
El fenómeno descrito no es exclusivo de la práctica judicial centroamericana, como ya se advirtiera al mencionar la denuncia hecha en España por MONTERO AROCA. Lo mismo hacen CORDERO, FERRAJOLI y otros en Italia. En realidad el germen de la perversión de la oralidad es, como señala FERRAJOLI[7], la estructura bifásica del proceso creada por el Código de Instrucción Criminal francés de 1808.
Como se recordará, la Revolución Francesa adoptó el sistema acusatorio de tipo inglés, el paradigma de la justicia penal para todos los pensadores de la Ilustración. Fue durante el régimen napoleónico que se restauró el sumario inquisitorial de procedimiento escrito y semisecreto. Se buscó un equilibrio, de por sí imposible, entre una instrucción inquisitiva y un plenario o juicio oral y público.
Lo demás es historia sabida: la instrucción se engulló el juicio. Lo que fue concebido como accesorio y preparatorio terminó convirtiéndose en lo principal y definitivo. Del juicio quedó muy poco, en algunos países meramente la fachada pues aun para esta fase se dispuso el procedimiento escrito.
Esta era la hipertrofia que presentaban los códigos de procedimiento penal o de instrucción criminal de casi todos los países iberoamericanos cuando irrumpió el movimiento de reforma en 1939. El nombre con que se designaban esos códigos era reflejo fiel de su naturaleza: códigos de procedimiento o de instrucción, ya que no regulaban sino eso, procedimiento o procedimientos, no procesos; instrucciones, no juicios o enjuiciamientos.
Cuba, por su condición de última colonia española que pasó a ser nación soberana, se benefició de la última Ley de Enjuiciamiento Criminal de la metrópolis, la de 1882, que, aunque estructurada según el modelo bonapartista, establece un juicio oral, que la práctica y cierto sector doctrinal parecen haberse empeñado en atrofiar.
Pero aun esta Ley de Enjuiciamiento Criminal española, excelente en muchos aspectos, contiene el germen de la mediatización de la oralidad al autorizar en su art. 730 la lectura de “las diligencias practicadas en el sumario, que, por causas independientes de la voluntad de aquéllas (las partes), no puedan ser reproducidas en el juicio oral”.
Y con el último código italiano, de 1988, se incurre en el mismo yerro que contienen los códigos de 1913 y 1930 de incluir preceptos claramente contrarios al procedimiento oral. Tales, por ejemplo, la incorporación de actas de actos “no repetibles” realizados por la policía judicial o el ministerio público (art. 431) o, bajo ciertas circunstancias, las declaraciones rendidas por el imputado durante la investigación preliminar (art. 513).
Todo indica que mientras haya diligencias previas al juicio en las que se produzcan actos con alguna semejanza con los de prueba existirá la tentación de usarlos como tales, porque el inquisitorialismo sigue vigente en el imaginario de los letrados de tradición romanística.

IV.- LA CONTAMINACIÓN DE LOS CÓDIGOS CENTROAMERICANOS
No existe, ni puede existir, procedimiento totalmente oral. La oralidad absoluta resultaría impráctica y peligrosa para la seguridad jurídica que se procura a través de la documentación, dentro y fuera del proceso, de los actos trascendentes. Hay actos procesales que necesariamente deben ser escritos o, al menos, hacerse constar en actas: la acusación y la sentencia, por ejemplo.
Pero el hecho de que el procedimiento oral no sea incompatible con la documentación de los actos procesales, sin la cual no podría guardarse adecuada memoria del proceso, no significa que se pueda reconocer a esos documentos procesales el carácter de prueba documental en todos los casos. Tampoco significa que sea admisible reconocer tal condición a cualquier documento ajeno al proceso o a la investigación que le precede.
El procedimiento acentuadamente oral, que es al que se aspira con la reforma procesal penal, consiste en que la producción de las pruebas y los alegatos de las partes se realicen ante el tribunal que decidirá la causa. Oralidad sin inmediación es una mera ficción, enseñaba CHIOVENDA[8].
Esa es la razón por la cual las pruebas personales, como las declaraciones de los testigos y los informes de los peritos, son orales cuando son rendidos de viva voz en la audiencia del juicio. La prueba documental se incorpora al juicio mediante la actividad que permita imponerse de su contenido: lectura de textos, proyección de filmes o videos, audición de grabaciones, examen de mapas, dibujos o fotografías. Pero no es prueba documental la documentación de testimonios o informes de perito.
En consecuencia, es contrario a la oralidad:
a) Que las pruebas personales lleguen al tribunal sentenciador mediante actas o documentos, salvo en los casos de anticipo de prueba mediante diligencias realizadas con observancia del principio de oralidad cuando no sea posible que el testigo o perito comparezca en la audiencia del juicio;
b) La ya mencionada confusión entre actos de investigación y actos de prueba, con la consecuente incorporación de aquéllos al juicio para que sirvan de sustento a la decisión del juzgador, y,
c) Incorporar al debate en calidad de prueba documental a documentos que no tengan esa condición.
No es prueba documental el documento en el que constan los resultados de los actos de investigación u otros actos procesales, como la denuncia, el informe policial o el informe de peritos. Excepcionalmente un documento procesal puede constituir prueba documental, como cuando se trata de demostrar el contenido de una sentencia dictada en otro proceso y se hace llegar al tribunal el expediente en que se encuentra.
Y en cuanto a documentos ajenos al proceso o a la investigación que le precede también hay algunos que no constituyen prueba documental. Hay una diferencia sustancial entre una escritura en la que consta el traspaso de un inmueble y un instrumento notarial en el que constan unas manifestaciones de alguien sobre los hechos objeto del proceso. Igualmente, entre una certificación de un expediente médico y una certificación médica sobre lo que un profesional de la Medicina dice haber apreciado al prestar sus servicios profesionales a un paciente. Los primeros elementos de esta doble confrontación serían admisibles como prueba documental, si fueran pertinentes; los segundos no pueden serlo porque existe un medio específico de prueba para esas fuentes: el testimonio. Admitirlos como prueba documental significaría la corrupción de la prueba testimonial y de la oralidad.
Desafortunadamente algunas de estas diferencias no parecen estar claras en algunos códigos de la región, que en esto siguen fieles a sus modelos inmediatos y mediatos, los cuales en general autorizan la incorporación al debate o audiencia del juicio de declaraciones recibidas en la investigación preliminar o de dictámenes periciales escritos y de otros documentos que no califican como prueba documental.
Tampoco están claras para una alta proporción de jueces, fiscales y defensores y hasta para algunos comentaristas[9].
En lo que toca a los códigos procesales penales del istmo, establecen la forma escrita para el dictamen pericial todos ellos, con excepción del nicaragüense, que en su art. 203 dispone:
“Cuando sea necesario o conveniente poseer conocimientos especiales en alguna ciencia, arte, técnica o materia para conocer o para apreciar un elemento de prueba, el juez podrá admitir la intervención de un perito en el Juicio, para que exprese su opinión sobre el punto en cuestión”.
Como ya habíamos anticipado, no hay en el procedimiento penal nicaragüense intervención de perito antes del juicio. Esto no significa que no haya aplicación de técnicas criminalísticas durante la investigación policial, sino que a quienes las aplican el Código no les reconoce condición de peritos mientras no hayan sido propuestos como tales por la parte interesada y admitidos por el juez.
Por esa razón no hay ningún informe o dictamen pericial previo al juicio que pueda ser leído durante el debate. Sí puede y suele haber un informe de experto, anterior al proceso, que debe ser puesto en conocimiento de la contraparte en el intercambio de información sobre la prueba (art. 269.4) a fin de que esté prevenida sobre los extremos del futuro dictamen pericial que tendrá lugar en la audiencia del juicio. El informe del experto no puede ser incorporado a la audiencia o debate porque no es prueba, sino simple información sobre lo que va a ser el dictamen pericial, que es el verdadero medio de prueba.
Excepcionalmente, cuando se trate del examen de cosas mediante un dictamen pericial propuesto por cualquiera de las partes y realizado por una persona admitida ya como perito, la operación deberá llevarse a cabo quince días antes de la audiencia del juicio o debate y el informe sobre sus resultados debe ser remitido al juez y a la contraparte (art. 278).
Este sí es un informe pericial escrito, pero no tiene la función de sustituir al que necesariamente debe rendir de forma oral el perito, del cual no es sino un elemento inescindible, sin vida propia, y del cual puede hacerse uso en el interrogatorio al perito sin necesidad de incorporarlo, porque lo único que podrá ser valorado como prueba es lo que oralmente informe el perito, no lo que haya informado por escrito. Se puede restarle mérito al informe oral en caso de que el perito no haya sabido explicar una contradicción con lo que manifestó por escrito, pero esto último no es un medio de prueba. Consecuentemente, no sería admisible fundar en el informe escrito la decisión del juzgador.
No es otra excepción el dictamen que recae sobre la eventual incapacidad sobreviniente del acusado (art. 97,II) , porque no constituye prueba de los hechos de la causa sino de la condición de salud mental del reo. Pero incluso en este caso el código nicaragüense dispone una audiencia oral y pública (“dictamen médico forense rendido en audiencia pública”).
Todos los códigos de la región, salvo el de Nicaragua, utilizan el concepto de “actos definitivos e irreproducibles” para autorizar el anticipo de prueba. Lamentablemente se trata de una expresión muy imprecisa. El código de Nicaragua se refiere en este extremo concretamente al testimonio de quien se encuentre en inminente peligro de muerte o de la persona no residente en el país e imposibilitada de prolongar su permanencia en él hasta el momento del juicio o de regresar a ese efecto, y del perito que ya hubiere practicado el examen objeto de su pericia y éste, el examen, fuere irreproducible.
Solamente los códigos de Honduras (art.311.1) y Nicaragua (art.202) condicionan la incorporación de esta prueba en el juicio a la imposibilidad de su reproducción. Los de El Salvador (art.330.1) y Costa Rica (art. 334.a) se limitan a dejar a salvo el derecho de cualquiera de la partes y la potestad del tribunal de exigir la reproducción de la prueba, cuando fuere posible. El código de Guatemala (art. 364) limita a la prueba pericial la situación prevista en los códigos salvadoreño y costarricense.
En cuanto a la lectura de declaraciones testificales, fuera de los casos de anticipo de prueba con observancia de la oralidad, se da la misma situación de los dictámenes de perito: lo admiten todos los códigos, menos el de Nicaragua. Y no es que esté expresamente prohibido en la legislación nicaragüense, sino que sólo ante el juez puede producirse la prueba testimonial. Al no existir testimonio antes del juicio, no hay nada que pueda ser incorporado en esa calidad. Al respecto dispone el art. 196 del código en cuestión, con el epígrafe Deber de rendir testimonio :
“Sin perjuicio de las excepciones previstas en el presente Código, toda persona tendrá la obligación de concurrir al llamamiento a Juicio y de declarar la verdad de cuanto conozca...”.
También en tema de actos de investigación se presenta el mismo cuadro: todos los códigos centroamericanos, excepto el de Nicaragua, autorizan la incorporación al juicio del resultado de actos de investigación. Por ejemplo:
a) Código Procesal Penal de Guatemala: actas de inspección, registro domiciliario, requisa personal, y reconocimientos (art. 364.3);
b) Código Procesal Penal de El Salvador: actas de reconocimiento, registro o inspección (art. 330.4);
c) Código Procesal Penal de Honduras: actas que documentan inspecciones, reconocimientos, registros o allanamientos (art.311.4) , y,
d) Código Procesal Penal de Costa Rica: actas de reconocimiento, registro, inspección, secuestro, requisa (art. 334.b).
En contrapartida, como ya vimos al examinar su art. 247, el Código Procesal Penal de Nicaragua exige que el resultado de los actos de investigación llegue al juicio a través de un medio de prueba.
Por último, la posibilidad de incorporar al juicio otros documentos, de dudosa condición y en algunos casos de más que sospechosa utilidad, la situación es la siguiente:
a) Código Procesal Penal de Guatemala: denuncia, prueba de informes, careos (art.364.3);
b) Código Procesal Penal de El Salvador: denuncia, prueba de informes, y “Todo otro elemento de prueba” (?) autorizado por el tribunal (art. 330.4);
c) Código Procesal Penal de Honduras: No señala ninguno (art. 311);
d) Código Procesal Penal de Nicaragua: informes, certificaciones (art. 287.2), y,
e) Código Procesal Penal de Costa Rica: denuncia, informes, certificaciones (art. 334.b)
Examinemos primero el caso de la denuncia. Este acto procesal de finalidad informativa de la notitia criminis y propulsora de la investigación no tiene el menor valor probatorio. ¿Qué utilidad tiene entonces su incorporación al debate? Que no se diga que sirve para demostrar que se ha cumplido con una condición de procedibilidad porque, por una parte, esa cuestión se incidenta antes del juicio y, por otra parte, las excepciones a la oralidad se refieren únicamente a la prueba de los hechos.
La prueba de informes, como la llaman los códigos guatemalteco y salvadoreño, o simplemente los informes, como la denominan los códigos costarricense y nicaragüense plantean una situación ambigua. Si los informes tienen capacidad probatoria constituyen prueba documental y resulta, entonces, inapropiado distinguirlos de aquélla. Si no tienen naturaleza de prueba documental resultan inútiles para el juicio. Su aparición en el código de Nicaragua deviene de la influencia del código de Costa Rica.
En relación con el código nicaragüense de ninguna manera puede admitirse que ese informe sea el pericial, por las razones ya expuestas. Tampoco podría pretenderse que sea el informe policial, como lo creen algunos comentaristas, y precisamente por la razón utilitaria que ellos le atribuyen: convertir en actos de prueba los actos de investigación. Un acto de investigación jamás puede ser convertido en acto de prueba porque eso sería borrar la diferencia sustancial entre ellos. Lo que es admisible no es la metamorfosis del acto de investigación, ni su imposible legitimación como prueba, sino hacer llegar al juicio la fuente de prueba obtenida con el acto de investigación. Y la única forma que el código de Nicaragua admite para ello es la indicada en el art. 247: a través de un medio de prueba.
En el caso de las certificaciones la situación es semejante a la de los informes: son admisibles sólo en tanto sean pruebas documentales.
El careo o, más bien, las actas en que consten las diligencias de careo practicadas antes del debate tienen el vicio de ser actas de actos de de investigación. Se trata, entonces de verdadera prueba preconstituida en el sumario o investigación preliminar (el nombre con que se designe la primera fase del proceso es intrascendente para los efectos de constatar la mediatización de la oralidad), que no puede ingresar al juicio.
Por ultimo, la frase del código salvadoreño con que remata la lista de documentos que pueden ser incorporados “Todo otro elemento de prueba... previa autorización del tribunal”, dada su gran laxitud es un boquete abierto bajo la línea de flotación del navío del juicio oral.

V.- LAS RAZONES DE LA MEDIATIZACIÓN
Con pie en esas disposiciones legales que han contaminado los nuevos códigos de inquisitorialismo, y en ocasiones sin otro fundamento que los viejos hábitos, los jueces, fiscales y defensores centroamericanos propenden a un retorno del procedimiento escrito en la producción de la prueba y casi reducen el espacio de la oralidad al rincón de los informes o conclusiones finales.
Las razones que suelen esgrimirse en defensa de esta oralidad mediatizada suelen ser las siguientes:
a) La escasez de peritos, particularmente médicos forenses;
b) La exigencia de celeridad de los debates;
c) La aceptación implícita del informe pericial escrito, y,
d) Los pobres resultados de los interrogatorios a los peritos.
En cuanto a la primera razón, la escasez de médicos forenses y otros peritos, puede obedecer a que, efectivamente, sea muy reducido su número, en cuyo caso cabría cuestionar la voluntad política de los gobernantes de mantener un sistema de justicia penal con procedimiento oral. Otra causa puede ser que el sistema penal no funcione adecuadamente y esté enviando a juicio oral un excesivo número de casos. La solución habría que buscarla allí y no en la mediatización de la oralidad.
La segunda razón, exigencia de celeridad de los debates, tampoco es de recibo. Una cosa es justicia pronta y otra la falsificación de la oralidad.
La aceptación del contenido del informe pericial escrito podría dar lugar, al menos en el código de Nicaragua, a un acuerdo probatorio, o sea, a que las partes de consuno manifiesten al juez que no controvierten el hecho sobre el que recaería la pericia (art. 269.1). En los otros códigos no hay esa salida. La prueba debe producirse en la única forma admisible en un procedimiento oral: compareciendo el perito a la audiencia.
Por último, los pobres resultados de los interrogatorios a los peritos se deben a la deficiente formación profesional de los abogados y a su escasa o nula preparación de los casos. Es necesario hacer énfasis en esto. Cuando un abogado bien preparado interroga al perito se descubre cuántas fisuras suelen presentar los dictámenes. Un gran auxilio del abogado es el consultor técnico, institución reciente en Centroamérica que no se ha sabido utilizar.

VI.- POSIBLES SOLUCIONES
Lo primero que hay que hacer es capacitar a los jueces y a los abogados en general sobre lo que es realmente el procedimiento oral. Reforzar también en ellos los conocimientos sobre prueba penal, para que no haya confusión sobre los conceptos de fuente de prueba, órgano de prueba, medio de prueba, actos de investigación y actos de prueba.
Lo segundo sería hacer un diagnóstico sobre el volumen de casos que están siendo elevados a juicio y las causas del fenómeno. Todo indica que las salidas alternas no están siendo usadas con la frecuencia requerida.
En tercer lugar, hacer un estudio sobre el número de médicos forenses y otros peritos oficiales en relación con el número de causas de cada país del área y comparar sus resultados con la proporción que se da en países de procedimiento penal oral de aplicación satisfactoria. Si bien es cierto que la escasez de recursos humanos es un tópico en nuestros países, es muy posible que haya otros factores más determinantes y no difíciles de corregir.
Por último, habría que expurgar en los textos de nuestros códigos toda insinuación de que es posible oralidad sin inmediación. Oralidad sin inmediación es una ficción.

          Happy Independence Day   

The U.S. Capitol is an iconic symbol of freedom. As I walk its halls, I try to make a point to pause and reflect on the brave experiment which became our system of government.

There is a marble staircase leading up to the House floor, and each step is significantly worn. It reminds me of all those who have come before me as representatives to help determine the course of our country and maintain freedom and opportunity for Americans.

We face major challenges in our country today which have led to growing divisions. However, we must be mindful of all our nation has endured since its founding on July 4, 1776, and strive for unity.  

The Declaration of Independence was truly revolutionary, proclaiming the rights of individuals and the limits of government. Many of our Founders did not even like each other, but they came together for the cause of freedom. Their words have guided our republic and inspired greater freedom around the world for 241 years.  

I am still fascinated by the story of Presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who were leaders and partners in the American Revolution but became enemies due to their vastly different beliefs on how to run the country. Following their presidencies, the two men reestablished their friendship. Remarkably, they both died on the same day – July 4, 1826 – exactly 50 years after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

The Second Continental Congress adopted a resolution of independence two days before the formal Declaration of Independence, and as John Adams said at the time, “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”  

Other than being off by two days, Adams’s vision for how we would mark America’s birthday has been proven correct year after year. From sea to shining sea, we celebrate our independence with fireworks displays, cookouts, parades, and gatherings. I enjoy seeing how different communities around Nebraska develop their own Fourth of July traditions – and, of course, it is great fun to share in the festivities.

As we celebrate, we must make it a priority to honor those who have fought to preserve the freedoms we enjoy. To all who serve or have served, we are deeply grateful for your willingness to answer the call of duty. To the families of those deployed, we are here to support you. To those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we will never forget your service.

President Ronald Reagan said in 1981, “There have been revolutions before and since ours. But those revolutions simply exchanged one set of rules for another. Ours was a revolution that changed the very concept of government.”

We are blessed to live in this great nation which serves as a beacon of freedom to the world. May we be brought closer together by our love of country and gratitude to those who have fought to protect her.  

To all Nebraskans, Happy Independence Day to you and your families.

          New Documentary THE PULITZER AT 100 Opens 8/11 in L.A.   

The Pulitzer at 100 celebrates the centenary of this revered and seminal national award for literary excellence in journalism and the arts. The totality of the Pulitzers has had an immeasurable impact on the American sensibility and beyond over the past 100 years. The riveting tales of the winning artists give an insider's view of how these pinnacles of achievement are selected in the twenty-one categories and how the award has the power to change lives and communities. The diverse stories explored in the film relate to immigration, race, gender, and above all freedom of speech - all issues that are ever more relevant in America today.

Featuring interviews with several notable prize recipients, including authors, journalists, playwrights and musicians such as Toni Morrison, Michael Chabon, Junot Díaz, Tony Kushner, Paula Vogel, Ayad Akhtar, Carl Bernstein, Robert Caro, Martin Baron, Nicholas Kristof, Thomas Friedman, David Remnick, Wynton Marsalis and John Adams, the film also brings Pulitzer-winning works to life through readings by Martin Scorsese, Helen Mirren, Natalie Portman, Liev Schreiber, John Lithgow and Yara Shahidi, all of whom bring their own talents to bear on the words of their favorite writers.

Interwoven with the stories of the journalists and artists and readings is the history of the man who created it. Joseph Pulitzer, who came to America to fight as a mercenary in the Civil War, left money to Columbia University upon his death in 1911. A portion of his bequest was used to found the School of Journalism in 1912, not only to elevate the professionalism and to improve the craft but also to establish the Pulitzer Prizes which were first awarded in 1917. Today, both the iconic prizes and the prominence of the School of Journalism at Columbia represent the highest standards of integrity and excellence in writing.

A thoughtful and colorful tapestry of the last 100 years of journalistic and artistic life in America, The Pulitzer at 100 is an illuminating and thought-provoking work that will spark the imagination of viewers, marking the beginning of a re-exploration and revisiting of the astonishing power of literature, in all forms, that have enriched our lives, whilst containing a century-long social commentary on the human condition, wherein lie many answers to the problems manifested in the world today.

There are more than a thousand recipients of this prestigious award including journalists, novelists, poets, musicians and photographers and this film has been made from the most valuable of resources, the artists themselves, many of whom are featured in The Pulitzer at 100, including:

Naturalmente i sentimenti che animano l’accesa condanna nei confronti dei gruppi antisemiti di oggi, risalgono alla persecuzione ebraica ad opera del nazismo e di Adolf Hitler. Tuttavia, ormai basta sollevare delle riserve sui Rothschild o su altri ebrei o organizzazioni ebraiche per essere bollati subito come “nazi”.



Eppure è stato dimostrato in tanti libri e da un’infinità di studiosi, che Adolf Hitler e i nazisti sono stati creati e finanziati proprio dai Rothschild. Furono loro che organizzarono l’ascesa al potere di Hitler, attraverso società segrete a capo degli Illuminati presenti in Germania, come la “Società Thule”, la “Società Vril” e altre; furono sempre i Rothschild a finanziare Hitler attraverso la Banca d’Inghilterra e altre fonti, come la Banca Kuhn Loeb, che finanziò anche la Rivoluzione Russa. Il cuore della “macchina da guerra” di Hitler, fu il genio chimico I.G.Farben, anch’egli controllato dai Rothschild tramite società finanziarie, attraverso i valletti dei Warburg.

La Standard Oil dei Warburg gestiva Aushwitz, ma era ufficialmente dei Rockefeller (l’impero Rockefeller era stato creato, tra gli altri, dai Rothschild). Essi possedevano anche i mezzi di comunicazione, e così controllavano il flusso di notizie date al pubblico. Guarda caso le loro proprietà non erano state sfiorate da una bomba in tutta la guerra! Altre fabbriche lì vicino erano invece state demolite dai raid aerei.

Quindi dietro la forza di Hitler vi era la mano sapiente dei Rothschild, proprio coloro che nel mondo sostengono la razza ebraica? Gli ebrei sono per loro, come tutto il resto della popolazione, solo bestiame da usare e muovere a proprio vantaggio. Alcuni dicono che Hitler non poteva appartenere alla famiglia Rothschild, perchè ha massacrato quel popolo, insieme a zingari e comunisti e a chi non gli piaceva, mentre i Rothschild difendono gli ebrei facendone parte, e quindi, mai avrebbero fatto un orrore del genere.

Oh, davvero? Non solo Hitler fu sostenuto dai Rothschild, ma diverse prove dicono che lui stesso fosse un Rothschild, tra cui il libro dello psicanalista Walter Langer, “The mind of Hitler”. Questo calza a pennello sulla propaganda organizzata dagli Illuminati per spianare la strada al potere ad Adolf Hitler.

Egli venne sostenuto anche dai Windsor (in realtà casata tedesca dei Sassonia-Coburgo-Gotha), e tra questi figurava Lord Mountbatten, un Rothschild, un satanista. I dati sul legame tra nazisti e britannici devono ancora emergere del tutto, ma uno studioso di nome Langer, a questo proposito ha scritto: Il padre di Adolf, Alois Hitler, era un figlio illegittimo di Maria Anna Schiklgruber. Si pensava fosse figlio di Georg Hiedler. Ma ciò è altamente improbabile: in Austria era saltato fuori un documento, che dimostrava che Maria Anna S. fosse a Vienna al momento del concepimento. A quel tempo era la domestica del barone Rothschild. Non appena scoperta la sua gravidanza fu infatti cacciata? e nacque Alois“. Le informazioni di Langer provengono da un alto ufficiale della Gestapo, Hansjurgen Koelher, e furono pubblicate nel 1940, col titolo “Inside the Gestapo”. Quel fascicolo scrisse “provocò tanto scompiglio quanto mai prima”. Egli rivelò anche che: “Attraverso quei fascicoli scoprimmo tramite certificato di nascita, scheda di registrazione della polizia, i protocolli ecc., alcune cose che il cancelliere tedesco riuscì a ricomporre come un puzzle, dandogli una coerenza logica”.

“Una giovane serva (la nonna di Hitler) arrivò a Vienna e divenne domestica presso alcune delle famiglie più potenti e ricche di Vienna. Ma, sfortunata, venne sedotta e abbandonata mentre aspettava un bambino e venne rispedita al villaggio natale? Qual era la famiglia viennese presso cui lavorava? Non era una domanda poi così difficile. A Vienna era già da tempo in funzione un registratore obbligatorio presso il commissariato di polizia: ella lavorava presso i Rothschild e il nonno ignoto di Hitler doveva trovarsi in quella casa”Il fascicolo Dolfuss si fermava a questa osservazione.

Forse Hitler era così determinato a conquistare l’Austria per distruggere ogni traccia del suo retaggio? “Mi pare che Hitler conoscesse le sue origini ancor prima di diventare Cancelliere. Come suo padre, quando il gioco si fece duro, si trasferì a Vienna; poco dopo la morte della madre nel dicembre 1907, Adolf partì per Vienna. Là si perse ogni sua traccia per 10 mesi! Ciò che fece in quel periodo è un mistero, ma noi possiamo presupporre che si fosse intrattenuto a conoscere i suoi cugini e a valutare il suo potenziale in vista di future eventuali imprese”.

Philip Eugene de Rothschild, sostiene di essere un discendente dei Roth come lo fu Hitler o altre migliaia di persone cresciute e allevate da essi, prima di essere affidati a famiglie di facciata, al fine di ricoprire posizioni di privilegio sotto falso nome e illegittimamente. Ma quale dei Rothschild era il nonno di Hitler? Alois, il padre nacque nel 1837 nel periodo in cui Salomon Mayer era l’unico Rothschild che viveva a Vienna. Persino la moglie era tornata a Francoforte dopo il fallimento del loro matrimonio. Il loro figlio, Anselm Salomon, trascorse la maggior parte della sua vita lavorativa tra Parigi e Francoforte, lontano da Vienna e dal padre. Quindi, il vecchio e solo Salomon Mayer Rothschild è il sospettato numero 1.

E Hermann von Goldschmidt, figlio di un impiegato di Salomon Mayer, scrisse un libro pubblicato nel 1917, che riporta a proposito di Solomon: “dal 1840 aveva sviluppato un particolare entusiasmo per le giovinette”...e...“aveva una passione lasciva per le bambine, e le sue avventure con loro furono messe a tacere dalla polizia”.

La nonna di Hitler era una giovane ragazza che lavorava sotto quello stesso tetto e che divenne ben presto oggetto delle attenzioni e voglie di Mr Salomon. Ella rimase incinta proprio mentre era in servizio in quella casa. Suo nipote divenne poi cancelliere tedesco, grazie all’appoggio finanziario dei Rothschild, dando inizio alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale che fu così importante per il piano globale degli Illuminati.

          DRACULA, VAN HELSING, AND GIANT SPIDERS IN THE CATHEDRAL   

Official movie poster for the 1979 horror film Nosferatu the Vampyre (© Werner Herzog Filmproduktion/20th Century Fox – reproduced here on a strictly non-commercial Fair Use basis only)

A few weeks ago, I finally found time to watch a horror film that I had long been planning to see. Directed by Werner Herzog and starring Klaus Kinski in spellbinding form as the title character, the film in question was Nosferatu the Vampyre, the very stylish 1979 West German art-house remake of the cult 1922 German silent movie Nosferatu(starring Max Schreck), which in turn was loosely based upon Bram Stoker's classic epistolary vampire novel Dracula.

Little did I think while viewing it that only a short time later I would be investigating a fascinating but hitherto-obscure cryptozoological conundrum tucked away within the pages of the selfsame famous novel that had inspired this film – but that is precisely what happened, providing further confirmation for what I have always known, especially when dealing with mystery animals. Always expect the unexpected, and you will never be disappointed.

So here is that recent investigation of mine, presented here as a ShukerNature exclusive – the ever-curious case of Dracula, Van Helsing, and Giant Spiders in the Cathedral.

Bram Stoker in 1906 (public domain)

Many years ago, while reading Stoker's Dracula, which was originally published in 1897, I was intrigued by the following short but memorable aside spoken by the eminent vampire hunter Prof. Abraham Van Helsing to his former student Dr John Seward:

Can you tell me why, when other spiders die small and soon, that one great spider lived for centuries in the tower of the old Spanish church and grew and grew, till, on descending, he could drink the oil of all the church lamps?

At the time of reading it, however, I simply assumed that this extraordinary statement was nothing more than the product of Stoker's very fertile, and febrile, imagination. Consequently, I swiftly dismissed it from my mind, never considering for a moment that it may actually have been inspired by reality.

And then, just a few days ago, I received a fascinating email from a correspondent that has incited me to revisit this brief passage from Dracula and reassess it in a much more enlightened manner.

Received by me on 27 June 2017, the illuminating email in question was from James Nicholls of Perth, Australia, who very kindly informed me that in 1821 two separate periodicals, the Edinburgh Magazine and Literary Miscellany (vol. 88, July-December, p. 268) and The Atheneum; or, Spirit of the English Magazines (vol. 9, April-October, p. 485), had published near-identical versions of a short but fascinating account (referred to hereafter in this ShukerNature blog article of mine as the 1821 account), concerning giant oil-drinking spiders lurking amid the shadows of two major European edifices of religious worship. Here is the version that appeared in the Edinburgh Magazine and Literary Miscellany:

The sexton of the church of St Eustace, at Paris, amazed to find frequently a particular lamp extinct early, and yet the oil consumed only, sat up several nights to perceive the cause. At length he discovered that a spider of surprising size came down the cord to drink the oil. A still more extraordinary instance of the same kind occurred during the year 1751, in the Cathedral of Milan. A vast spider was observed there, which fed on the oil of the lamps. M. Morland, of the Academy of Sciences, has described this spider, and furnished a drawing of it. It weighed four pounds, and was sent to the Emperor of Austria, and is now in the Imperial Museum at Vienna.

Needless to say, reading through this remarkable account, one is irresistibly reminded of Van Helsing's comment as penned by Stoker in Dracula – so much so, in fact, that surely there can be little if any doubt that this was indeed Stoker's source of inspiration for that comment, especially as this account was published 76 years before Stoker's novel first appeared in print.

Presumably, Stoker either misremembered the locations given for these stupendous spiders in the account, or he purposefully changed them in order to make it look as if Van Helsing had only retained a hazy, incompletely accurate memory of the account. Both of these possibilities could satisfactorily explain why he cited a Spanish church rather than either the French one or Milan Cathedral as named in the account.

Exquisite 19th-Century illustration of Milan Cathedral, capturing very effectively its immense size – big enough, surely, to conceal even the most monstrous of spiders amid the shadows embracing its upper regions during the hours of daylight? (public domain)

But might there be any factual substance to the above account, or was it too merely a work of fiction? Initially, the concept of any kind of oil-drinking spider, irrespective of body size considerations for the time being, seemed ludicrous. After all, kerosene would surely be toxic to such creatures. But when I began to research the account, I began to wonder.

For I discovered that back when it was published, during the early 1800s, and especially during the even earlier time period named by it during which the giant cathedral spider of Milan was reportedly discovered, i.e. during the early 1750s, the oil commonly used in lamps was derived from whale blubber or rendered animal fat, and therefore could conceivably be nutritious for spiders.

Moreover, spiders typically imbibe their sustenance in liquid form anyway; on account of the narrowness of their gut, they cannot digest solid food, so after immobilising or killing their prey with injected venom or enshrouding silk, they pump digestive enzymes into it from their midgut, then suck the prey's now-liquefied tissues into their gut. So the oil-drinking proclivity attributed to these great spiders is not as implausible as one might otherwise assume.

My book Mirabilis (© Dr Karl Shuker)

But what about their prodigious magnitude? My book Mirabilis; A Carnival of Cryptozoology and Unnatural History (2013) contains an exceedingly comprehensive chapter documenting a varied array of giant spider reports originating from all over the world. Within that chapter (as well as within a ShukerNature blog article on giant spiders excerpted and expanded from it - click here), I discussed as follows the crucial physiological flaw inherent in all speculation concerning the plausibility (or otherwise)  of such creatures:

The fundamental problem when considering giant spiders is not one of zoogeography but rather one of physiology. Their tracheal respiratory system (consisting of a network of minute tubes carrying oxygen to every cell in the body) prevents insects from attaining huge sizes in the modern world, because the tracheae could not transport oxygen efficiently enough inside insects of giant stature. During the late Carboniferous and early Permian Periods, 300 million years ago, huge dragonflies existed, but back in those primeval ages the atmosphere's oxygen level was far greater than it is today, thereby compensating for the tracheal system's inefficiency.

Some of the largest known spiders also utilise a tracheal respiratory system, whereas smaller spiders employ flattened organs of passive respiration called book lungs. Yet neither system is sufficiently competent to enable spiders to attain enormous sizes, based upon current knowledge at least. So if a giant spider does thrive…it must have evolved a radically different, much more advanced respiratory system, not just a greatly enlarged body.

Also, giant spiders are very much the embodiment of primeval bogey beasts, created both consciously, by parents to playfully scare their children and to make them aware of the potential danger posed by various real but highly venomous species, and unconsciously, by the human imagination working overtime in relation to creatures whose potential danger is buried very deep within the fundamental human psyche. Surely it can be no coincidence that giant spiders, almost invariably of evil intent, appear in the traditional folklore and mythology of very different cultures all around the world.

Keep away from spiders, kids, or this might happen to you! (public domain)

Then again, outrageous journalistic hokum was extremely common in the West during much of the 19th Century, i.e. when the 1821 account was published, so perhaps that is all that it ever was, with no basis whatsoever in fact. After all, elsewhere on ShukerNature I have already documented such arachnological absurdities as the deadly giant siren-singing spider of Paris, France (click here), and the giant flying tomb spider of Rome, Italy (click here), both of which debuted in highly-suspect 19th-Century newspaper reports.

Since receiving the 1821 account from James Nicholls, I have conducted some appreciable online research in a quest for supplementary details appertaining to its contents, and have uncovered a few additional coverages of it, some back in the 1820s and others from modern times. However, all of them confine themselves almost exclusively to the details already provided in the Edinburgh Magazine and Literary Miscellany and The Atheneum.

Indeed, the most informative version that I have accessed so far, entitled 'The King of the Spiders', remains the one that appeared in The Atheneum, so here it is in full:

'The King of the Spiders' article from Vol. 9 (April-October 1821) of The Atheneum; or, Spirit of the English Magazines (public domain)

As can be seen, in addition to the standard details present in other versions, it also actually contains Morand's own verbal description (in French) of the giant Milan Cathedral spider. This translates into English as:

The body, the colour of soot, rounded, terminated in a point, with the back and the limbs hairy, weighed four pounds.

Two of the most notable 20th-Century publications to include mention of it are English spider authority W.S. Bristowe's A Book of Spiders (1947), and eminent British zoologist Prof. John L. Cloudsley-Thompson's authoritative work Spiders, Scorpions, Centipedes and Mites: The Ecology and Natural History of Woodlice, Myriapods, and Arachnids (1958). Worth noting is Bristowe's line of delightfully tongue-in-cheek speculation that he pursued in his coverage of the events detailed in the 1821 account:

I suspect the sexton [of St Eustace's Church in Paris] was under grave suspicion of borrowing the oil himself until he reported seeing [the giant spider stealing it].

Although he never stated it overtly, to my mind Bristowe's wording indicates that he entertained the possibility that the sexton had invented the entire giant spider story in order to conceal the fact that it was he who was stealing the oil. Who knows – perhaps the sexton had been aware of the report of the great spider from Milan Cathedral, and so was inspired by it to create a version of his own in order to hide his nefarious involvement in the oil's disappearance in his own place of worship.

Retitled as Spiders, reprint of W.S. Bristowe's A Book of Spiders (© King Penguin Books, reproduced here on a strictly non-commercial Fair Use basis only)

Sadly, the 1821 account tantalises rather than teaches its readers, by offering more questions than answers. Who, for instance, was Morland (or Morand, as so named in The Atheneum's version of events), who produced a drawing of the great spider of Milan Cathedral from 1751, and where is that drawing today? Does it still survive? I wonder if Morland (or Morand) could have been the English animal artist George Morland (1763-1804). And which museum is being referred to in the 1821 account as 'the Imperial Museum at Vienna'? However, it may well be Austria's Imperial Treasury Museum, which is housed at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, and contains many secular and ecclesiastical items spanning more than a millennium in European history.

In any event, I deem it highly unlikely that a preserved 4-lb spider exists in any museum collection within Austria – after all, as Bristowe pithily observed in his own coverage, it would be as big as a pekingese dog! Having said that, I would love to be proved wrong, so if anyone reading this article has knowledge of where such a specimen might be held today if it ever did once exist, I would greatly welcome details.

Nevertheless, having reported two separate specimens of giant spider means that the 1821 account is guaranteed to be of very appreciable interest and importance to cryptid seekers anyway. This makes it all the more surprising that (at least as far as I'm aware) its documentation in this present ShukerNature blog article of mine is the very first time that it has ever appeared in any strictly cryptozoological context.

Face to face – a (very) close encounter of the arachnid kind! (Vicky Nunn/public domain)

Now that it has very belatedly done so, however, let us hope that it elicits further details concerning those spiders of stature documented within it, and perhaps concerning additional specimens too.

I wish to offer my most sincere and grateful thanks to James Nicholls for kindly bringing the 1821 account to my attention. Moreover, in his same email to me, James also referred to a second, very different, but equally astonishing mystery beast report that I had not previously encountered - so I duly investigated that one too, and I have now documented it here on ShukerNature.

Finally: how could any article inspired by Stoker's Gothic literary masterpiece be considered at an end without having included at least one appearance from a member of the undead fanged fraternity – so here it is:

A vampire from the modern school of bloodsuckers, complete with fashionably-unkempt rock star looks, locks, and designer stubble, but clearly retaining the old school's fangs, ferocity, and mainstream malevolence – not a sparkle, shimmer, or outbreak of whimpering fangless adolescent angst to be seen anywhere here!

That is, living creatures which actively carry out chemical processes to produce and emit light.

Officially, however, there are no bioluminescent species among the terrestrial vertebrates - but claims have been made that there may in fact be a notable exception of the reptilian kind.

I first learnt about, and then duly investigated, this fascinating yet surprisingly little-known case back in the mid-1990s, and here is what I uncovered at that time, followed by the extraordinary revelations that have occurred since then – yielding in this present ShukerNature blog article of mine the most comprehensive account ever published online.

In March 1937, during an animal collecting trip to the West Indies, American zoologist and cryptozoologist Ivan T. Sanderson visited Mount Aripo (aka El Cerro del Aripo), at 3,084 ft high the loftiest peak in Trinidad and part of this island's Northern Range. He had been capturing some freshwater crabs in a series of dark subterranean pools there when he suddenly spied a faint light in a crevice beneath a ledge. The light promptly went out, but Sanderson was curious to discover its source, so he flashed his torch into the crevice - and was most surprised to find a small lizard.

Attempting to coax it into his net, Sanderson gently tickled the lizard, but instead of running out it turned its head away - and as it did so, Sanderson was very startled to see both of its flanks momentarily lighting up "...like the portholes on a ship". When he finally succeeded in capturing it, this remarkable reptile lit up again, glowing brightly in his hand with a pale greenish hue that Sanderson subsequently likened to the glow produced by the hands and figures of a luminous watch.

As zoologists were previously unaware of any bioluminescent lizards, Sanderson was very thrilled by his discovery, which he documented in his book Caribbean Treasure (1939). Ironically, however, apart from its unique glowing ability the lizard, which was a male, seemed relatively nondescript in general appearance - with a long tail but short legs, a sharply-pointed muzzle, dark brown upperparts, and rosy salmon-pink underparts (turning yellow under its head) surfaced with large rectangular scales of plate-like form.

Its only distinctive features were its body's lateral eyespots or 'portholes', constituting a series of large circular black blots running from the neck to the groin on both flanks, because each of these blots contained a vivid white bead-like spot. And it was these spots that were the source of the lizard's apparent luminescence, as determined by Sanderson during some basic experiments:

We made it [the lizard] hot and cold, and moist and dry alternately; we blew a loud whistle in its ear, we tickled it, and we subjected it to flashes of bright light...This creature seemed to produce its light in response to sudden emotional disturbance, rather than through actual physical reactions...The loud whistle, sudden winds, and flashes of light greatly agitated our lizard, causing it to switch on its 'portholes'. We noticed that this light was much brighter the first time it was switched on after the animal had been quiescent for a period, and more especially after it had previously been subjected to intense illumination.

Eventually, Sanderson shipped off his amazing little lizard to the British Museum (Natural History) in London, where it was studied in detail by fellow zoologist H.W. Parker. It was found to belong to a species already known to science (indeed, Parker himself had formally named and described it in 1935), but only just. An exceedingly rare member of the tejid (aka tegu) family Teiidae, and normally measuring 11-15 cm long, it was called Proctoporus (=Oreosaurus) shrevei (in honour of the very gifted American amateur herpetologist Benjamin Shreve), and had hitherto been represented in scientific collections only by a single preserved juvenile and one preserved adult female. Sanderson's specimen was therefore the first male of this species to have been brought to scientific attention, and until now no-one had suspected that it may be bioluminescent when alive.

Proctoporus shrevei (copyright holder presently unknown to me despite my having made considerable efforts to discover this; reproduced here on a strictly non-commercial Fair Use basis only)

During his visit to Trinidad, Sanderson collected seven more individuals of this species, and as preserved specimens these too were examined by Parker. In a paper published by the zoological journal of London's Linnaean Society in 1939, Parker revealed that it was sexually dimorphic, with only the males sporting the distinctive 'porthole' markings (a further reason why no bioluminescence had been reported from the specimens procured prior to Sanderson's), and that in every porthole the epidermis of the white bead at the centre was less than half the thickness of the epidermis of the black ring surrounding it. In addition, the white bead's epidermis was transparent, lacking any form of pigment. In other words, each porthole literally constituted a black-edged circular window.

How the portholes functioned, however, remained a mystery, because Parker found no associated nerve endings or an increased blood supply, thereby eliminating any likelihood that they were directly connected with the sensory or circulatory systems. Nor did he find any ducts connecting them with the exterior, or any complex lenses or reflecting structures.

Whatever they were, therefore, these portholes were clearly very simple in structure, and Parker offered three possible explanations for their luminosity. In life, the portholes may contain some substance that either glows when it breaks down (the principle of bioluminescence in various fishes), or glows when exposed to light (as with the paint used in luminous watches). The third option is that the transparent central beads of the portholes are underlain with reflective tissue. (A fourth possibility, that the portholes contain glowing bacteria which create their luminosity, can be rejected, because Parker did not report the presence of any bacteria within them.)

Inevitably, the prospect of a luminous lizard duly attracted attention from several other zoologists, who studied specimens of P. shrevei and various related tejids to find out whether any of them really did glow - but none of them did! And so in 1960, reporting at some length in the journal Breviora their own negative findings with P. achlyens from Venezuela and Neusticurus [now Potamites] ecpleopus ocellatus from Peru (both of which possess porthole markings resembling those of P. shrevei), American biologists Drs Willard Roth and Carl Gans rejected Sanderson's claims regarding P. shrevei's bioluminescence.

Yet Sanderson was an extremely experienced field zoologist, and Parker's histological studies convinced him that the portholes were genuine luminous organs. So who was correct? If P. shrevei were the only bioluminescent species, this would of course render worthless any comparative studies with related species. Moreover, at the time of my own initial examination of this case, only one zoologist other than Sanderson had actually investigated luminosity with living P. shrevei specimens, and he may simply not have stimulated them sufficiently for them to light up. (I subsequently found out that this latter zoologist was Prof. Julian S. Kelly – see later.)

My above account presents the situation concerning Trinidad's intriguing 'glowing lizard' that I had uncovered during my mid-1990s investigations. Since then, however, much additional information has come to light (pun intended!), and, as I discovered after unearthing it, this extra data includes some very significant new insights into P. shrevei and its alleged bioluminescent capabilities.

First of all, it is nowadays deemed not to be a true tejid, so it is housed within a separate taxonomic family, Gymnophthalmidae, which contains many species. These are sometimes referred to as microtejids, because they are smaller than true tejids. Also, they tend to be quite skink-like in appearance, with certain species possessing reduced limbs.

I was pleased to learn that following further field studies, P. shrevei is no longer considered to be as rare as previously claimed. Indeed, the IUCN officially categorises it as being of Least Concern, and the IUCN Red List website states: "...although the distribution [of this species] is limited (with an extent of occurrence of 210 km2), the population trend appears to be stable, there are no current threats, and it occurs in at least two protected areas".

In addition, the IUCN assigns this species to the genus Riama, although quite a few other authoritative sources checked by me retain it within Proctoporus (so I shall do the same here for text consistency purposes), and refers to it via a very memorable common name that ties in with its supposed abilities – Shreve's lightbulb lizard. But is this name warranted?

During my original investigations of Shreve's lightbulb lizard in the mid-1990s, I communicated with the West Midlands Safari Park's internationally-renowned herpetological expert Mark O'Shea, famed not only for his numerous scholarly publications but also for his fascinating TV show O'Shea's Big Adventurein which he travelled the world seeking rare or unusual reptiles and amphibians. Mark was very interested in this mystifying lizard species, and I was delighted when he subsequently visited Trinidad to look for it. His search featured in 'Exotic Island', the tenth episode of his show's first series, screened in 1999.

After arriving in Trinidad, Mark and his camera crew teamed up with Caesar, a local guide, and with Dr Victor Quesnel (named as Quinnel in some reports), a retired Trinidad-based economic botanist who was also a very knowledgeable all-round naturalist (he died in 2014). But before they set off on their arduous trek in the hope of emulating Sanderson's original success in encountering this island's luminous enigma in 1937, they were able to chat with Javrien Capriata (aka Capriata Dickson), who had been Sanderson's guide back then, and was now over 80 years old (Sanderson himself had died in 1973). Happily, Mark's search proved successful too, as the team found two specimens, a male and a female. (Moreover, during a much later expedition in 2008, Dr Quesnel actually rediscovered the specific cave where Sanderson had captured his lizard in 1937 but which had not been found since then; it is now known as Sanderson's Cave.)

These two lizards were duly videoed in a dark room by Mark's cameraman while they were being illuminated artificially and for a time after the artificial illumination had been turned off. The video was then viewed closely to see whether there were any signs of luminescence from them. Not surprisingly, the female lizard did not glow, as it lacked the all-important porthole markings. Conversely, the male did indeed appear to glow for a short time after the illumination had been turned off. Unfortunately, however, it was not possible to determine whether this constituted bona fide glowing from the lizard, or whether it was merely a trick of the light caused by filming and the camera adjusting to the darkness after the illumination had been extinguished.

During the first half of the year 2000, I exchanged a series of letters with herpetological specialist Hans E.A. Boos from Port of Spain, Trinidad's capital, who is extremely knowledgeable concerning the reptilian fauna of this island. Needless to say, therefore, one of the subjects that we discussed was P. shreveiand its alleged bioluminescence. Hans was very sceptical about this, and even more so concerning the reliability of Sanderson's eyewitness testimony (it has to be said here that Sanderson was well known for exaggerating claims at times, although this behaviour may have been caused by a brain tumour that developed over time and apparently contributed to his relatively early death, aged just 62).

In one of his letters to me, dated 22 January 200, Hans revealed that he had kept specimens of this lizard species in captivity for a considerable time but had never seen them light up. He also noted that both Dr Quesnel and Trinidad-based zoologist/newspaper columnist Prof. Julian S. Kenny had attempted to repeat the conditions reported by Sanderson but again had failed to achieve any success in stimulating the lizards to illuminate. In a subsequent letter, dated 14 April 2000, Hans mentioned to me that during the previous evening he'd had dinner with Dr Quesnel and had discussed fully with him the subject of P. shrevei. Quesnel had announced that he planned to try to collect a couple more specimens and this time arrange for high-quality histological sections to be prepared, with the tissues of the portholes properly fixed, in the hope of deducing something new regarding their supposed luminosity.

On 3 October 2004, the Trinidad Express newspaper published a short article written by Prof. Kenny that expanded upon Hans's comment concerning his investigations of Shreve's perplexing little lightbulb lizard. After referring to Sanderson's capture and claims regarding this species, Kenny revealed that American zoologist Prof. E. Newton Harvey (died 1959), a leading authority on bioluminescence, had once asked him to conduct an experiment to confirm his belief that Sanderson's claims were unfounded. The Harvey/Kelly experiment involved injecting some living specimens of P. shrevei with 1:10000, and 1:1000 doses of adrenalin. This treatment had already been shown to trigger light production in bioluminescent fishes, but it did not induce any reaction in the lizards.

Also in 2004, what is acknowledged to be the defining scientific paper dealing with this contentious species' reputed glowing behaviour was published in the Caribbean Journal of Science. One of its three authors was Dr Quesnel, who revealed that, in fulfilment of his hopes expressed to Hans Boos in 2000, he had indeed succeeded in conducting further field investigations of P. shrevei, in May 2001 and again in May 2002.

Two male specimens were captured in rock crevices near to a cave entrance at the summit of Mount Aripo – i.e. the same general locality as Sanderson's own discovery. After examining them in the field, Quesnel took them to a field station for further investigation, where they were studied under light and dark conditions at different times of the day. Yet no observations, either in the field or at the field station, revealed any light emission from the portholes. The same was true with a third specimen that had been captured and studied previously by Quesnel. Clearly, therefore, they did not appear capable of bona fide bioluminescence, i.e. the active generation of light by living organisms via chemical means.

But what about the prospect that the portholes were highly reflective, or perhaps even phosphorescent? (That is, reflecting incident invisible light as visible light but over a longer time period than in fluorescence and without heat.)

To test this possibility, Quesnel directed high-intensity light from a xenon lamp at the lizards from varying angles. No light was emitted by the lizards, thereby demonstrating that they were not phosphorescent. However, light was readily reflectedby their porthole (ocellar) scales. As Quesnel et al. explained in their paper:

...if P. shrevei is observed along the same plane from which light is directed, the normally obvious white ocelli cannot be seen against the reflection from all other scales. But, when viewed from an angle oblique to the light source, the ocelli appear brighter, while surrounding scales show no reflection. By varying the angle of reflected light, an illusion is created that the ocellar scales are intermittently emitting light, thus providing an explanation of Sanderson's original account of the lizard "switch[ing] on its portholes." The illusion produced by the reflective scales also explains recent accounts, as well as Sanderson's description of the white ocelli "remain[ing] plainly discernable in a darkened box when the rest of the animal was invisible." The ocellar scales reflect and intensify ambient light while the darker ground coloration renders the rest of the lizard invisible in a dimly lit environment.

It was also noted that the illusory effect of the reflective porthole scales was enhanced by a varying in intensity of the black pigment surrounding these scales, and that this varying of the black pigment's intensity appeared in turn to be dependent upon the lizards' stress levels - because it became darker when the lizards were first handled, but faded somewhat after several minutes. The black pigment surrounding the porthole scales heightened their reflective effect, making them look a brighter white:

When viewed immediately after handling the lizards, the ocelli appear to pulse or fluctuate in brightness as the surrounding pigment changes intensity. After a quiescent period, the ocelli are still reflective but do not appear as bright as when the surrounding skin pigmentation is darker. Again, this could explain Sanderson's description that light from the lizard "was much brighter the first time it was switched on after the animal had been quiescent for a period of time," and "after one brilliant display... it refused to shine with full brightness." The darker dermal pigmentation, presumably associated with higher stress levels during handling, heightens the reflective appearance of the white ocellar scales. Decreased pigmentation during inactive periods gives the illusion that the lizard is not producing light at full intensity.

In short, these studies appear to have comprehensively refuted Sanderson's claims that Shreve's lightbulb lizard is bioluminescent. Instead:

...the lizard's unique scales act like small parabolic mirrors, reflecting light at oblique angles. The intensity of this reflectivity is, in turn, influenced by the intensity of surrounding dermal pigmentation and by the angle at which a lizard is oriented relative to a light source. Thus, ocellar reflection produces an illusion that light is emitted by P. shrevei at varying intensities, a phenomenon which obviously has confused a number of persons.

Even so, one major light-related mystery concerning Shreve's very surprising microtejid still remains unsolved. Namely, why has so remarkable a morphological feature as this lizard's parabolic mirror scales evolved in the first place, and why only in male specimens?

These are questions that the study of Quesnel and his co-workers did not seek to answer, although, as they did point out, P. shrevei is a reclusive nocturnal species that inhabits dark localities and whose behaviour in the wild is unknown – all of which make any attempt at speculation fraught with difficulty. Nevertheless, it occurs to me that in view of their sex-specific and also age-specific occurrence, perhaps these scales' light-reflecting abilities function as a means of visual communication by which adult males attract adult females for mating purposes. An alternative option is that this light-reflection ability is used as a defence mechanism, to startle or ward off potential predators, but if this were true, why do only males possess the necessary scales?

Clearly it is high time that some comprehensive field studies were conducted in relation to this small yet very thought-provoking lizard, neglected by science for far too long, in the hope of finally shedding some much-needed light (in every sense!) upon the currently cryptic purpose(s) of its unique parabolic portholes.

          THE FRASERCOT PELTS – A VERITABLE CHINESE PUZZLE SOLVED AT LAST   

The Frasercot pelt originally owned (see Epilogue) by Mark Fraser (© Dr Karl Shuker)

In a short Tetrapod Zoology online blog post of 13 August 2007 (click here), English palaeontologist Dr Darren Naish, who also has a longstanding interest in mystery animals, discussed a very eyecatching, enigmatic pelt owned by Big Cats in Britain (BCIB) founder Mark Fraser. As revealed by a colour photograph of it in his post, this most distinctive long-furred pelt sported a beautiful pattern of dark scallop-shaped markings resembling overlapping fish-scales, but which bore no resemblance to the pelage of any known mammal.

This interesting post swiftly attracted numerous responses from readers, most of whom favoured various feline identities, including king cheetah, aberrant leopard, and woolly cheetah (a freak cheetah form reported from South Africa during the late 1800s and represented by a living specimen exhibited at London Zoo during that same period), although viverrid and hyaena identities were also mooted. Alternatively, could it be a fake – but, if so, how was it done? After all, surely it would take great skill to paint a pelt so meticulously with such a detailed pattern...wouldn't it?

In his blog post, Darren dubbed this mystifying pelt a Frasercot, in honour of its owner. He also noted that another pelt of this same type had been doing the rounds of antique fairs in Britain.

Moreover, in October 2009 Darren was in Libya, conducting some palaeontological fieldwork, and while visiting a market in Tripoli he was surprised to see a Frasercot pelt for sale there, hanging down on one of the stalls. It was too expensive for him to purchase, and in any case he was naturally concerned as to whether he would be permitted to bring such an item through customs, so he had to content himself with photographing it (a photo of it duly appeared in a Tetrapod Zoology blog article by Darren uploaded on 16 November 2009 – click here to see the photo).

Greatly intrigued by these pelts, in February 2012 I conducted some internet research concerning them. While doing so, I discovered a couple of photos of a smaller but otherwise identical pelt (alongside what looked like a second, larger one, but which was partly concealed from view by other furs) among the wares on the hand-cart of a fur vendor in Xiamen (aka Amoy), which is a major city in Fujian, southeastern China (these photos are viewable online here). The photos had been snapped on 31 October 2006 by a professional writer (name unknown to me) hailing from Mendocino in California, USA, but based in Xiamen during that time. Under her Flickr username 'Room With A View', she had later uploaded them into one of her online Flickr albums.

Further investigations revealed that such pelts were actually from domestic dogs but had been skilfully imbued in some way with the distinctive Frasercot-style scalloping in order for the traders to pass them off as exotic big cat pelts and sell them for lucrative amounts to unsuspecting Western tourists. When I contacted Darren concerning my findings, he confirmed that he had made the same discovery in relation to the Libyan pelt. Indeed, on 15 December 2010, one of his blog's readers, with the username NaturePunk, had provided the following highly illuminating response to Darren's post regarding the Tripoli pelt, verifying my own independent findings:

This is a dog skin that has been dyed to look like a cat skin. Common thing for vendors to do in Asian countries where dogs are killed for fur. I used to see this a lot when I lived there, and they would sell the dyed pelts along with pelts which were left un-altered. They see this sort of thing all the time at the Wildlife Forensics Center in Ashland [Oregon] where I live now.

Here are some links to photos of vendors selling dog pelts on the streets, trying to convince people that they're either wolf or big cat skins, a few of which are dyed with the EXACT same patterns as the pelt pictured above [i.e. the Tripoli pelt].

One of the links provided was the same as the one that I'd also discovered (and which I've given earlier here), to the photo of the Xiamen fur vendor with the pelts. A second one was to a photo that had been snapped and uploaded onto Flickr by Tennessee-born teacher Bill Benson, now living in Tianjin, northern China. It depicted another Chinese fur vendor, this time in Dalian (a big city and seaport in northeastern China's Liaoning Province), whose hand-cart bore a fully laid-out Frasercot pelt. Unfortunately, that particular photo is no longer accessible online (but I have a copy of it on file). Apparently, the vendor had tried to pass it off to Benson as a leopard skin (which it certainly wasn't – no leopard possesses the Frasercot scalloping pattern), but Benson affirmed that it was a dyed dog skin.

Even so, I was still unclear as to the manner in which such an intricate pattern was applied to the pelts, although I wondered whether it may involve a stencil or something similar in order to produce such a precise effect.

At much the same time, I learnt from British naturalist and taxidermist Jonathan McGowan that he had included on his website (www.thenaturalstuff.co.uk) a photo of the Frasercot pelt that had been doing the rounds of the antique fairs - he saw it at one in Lincolnshire. Of particular interest, however, was that Jonathan was convinced that this particular pelt on which the scalloping had been applied was not from a dog but from a large cat, probably a unicoloured species such as a puma. Memorably, the stall-holder claimed that it was from a rare species that she called a fishscale leopard! On 5 March 2012, Jonathan kindly provided me with the following additional details:

The pelt I found was at the RAF Swinderby antique fair in Lincolnshire about three years ago. I at first thought it was a painted dog pelt and asked the lady if I could have a look. On doing so I noticed the short legs with typical cat like short bristly fur on the ankles. The feet were cut off unfortunately but the head was on and it had typical cat shape with leopard like ears and big long whiskers, although few in number but not like small dog whiskers. The woman said that it came from South Africa and mentioned that even the dark scales have the skin underneath also black which proves that it is real! I replied that this does indeed suggest that it is a fake as dark pigmented skin does not correspond with dark hairs. It had nothing to do with it, but looking closely at it, only a few of the scallops had dark pigment under them anyway! And when I held the fur up to the light, I could see that each individual hair was black tipped correctly with lighter underneath. If it were a fake, I wondered just why some very skilled person went to the trouble of painting every individual hair just to produce this! However I am well aware of the Chinese ingenuity in regards to faking all kinds of things. Just maybe a mutant leopard did have such scalloping fish scale spots! I don't know but it is unlikely and I would rather see it as a hoax as a genuine thing. She wanted £200 for it and I had already spent my quota for the day.

Messaging Mark Fraser online via Facebook also on 5 March concerning his Frasercot specimen, I learnt that its head was distinctly dog-like in appearance rather than cat-like, and that he had purchased it from Coventry-based taxidermy enthusiast Martin Cotterill, who in turn informed me that he had bought it several years ago from a dealer at Swinderby Antiques Fair! In other words, exactly the same fair where Jonathan subsequently saw the one that he photographed.

As Mark's pelt is dog-headed whereas the one seen by Jonathan was cat-headed, they are evidently not the same specimen, but it seems reasonable to assume that they were from the same dealer – otherwise it is a truly formidable coincidence that two such similar yet extremely unusual pelts should come up for sale at the very same antique fair. If so, does this mean that the dealer had a regular supply of them, or had merely bought the two together as a one-off purchase? Whatever the answer, the very fact that a dog-headed pelt and a cat-headed pelt exhibited precisely the same highly-unusual scalloping pattern provided, I felt, conclusive evidence that the pattern was indeed applied artificially rather than being natural.

Mark uploaded some photos of his pelt's head and feet onto Facebook, and these were certainly canine rather than feline in shape. On 10 March 2012, moreover, I was able to confirm this directly, as well as ascertaining its total length (55 in from nose-tip to tail-tip) when Mark very kindly sent the pelt to me on loan in order for me to examine it. I was also able to see for myself that the artistic workmanship of the applied scalloping pattern was of an extremely high standard – but the biggest surprise, and revelation, was still to come.

I showed it to my mother, Mary Shuker, who had always been very knowledgeable regarding clothes and fashion in general, and she told me straight away that she'd seen real and artificial (faux) fur coats with this same pattern in the past, and also with other exotic-looking patterns. She then took out of one of her wardrobes a faux fur jacket with an extraordinary pattern on it, totally unlike that of any real species but which, when I examined it, could be seen to have been applied in precisely the same way as the pattern on Mark's Frasercot pelt – i.e. with the pattern visible on the upper surface of the hairs but not on the undersurface.

Moreover, when I asked her how such a pattern could have been applied, she told me that she knew how – because the person from whom she'd bought this jacket had told her, informing her that it was applied by a machine that physically stamps the pattern onto the faux pelt using a form of heated inked plate bearing the pattern. And so, with that all-important disclosure, my mother duly solved the mystery of the Frasercot pelts!

Meanwhile, for absolute confirmation of its taxonomic identity, Mark had kindly given me permission to snip some sample hairs from his pelt and submit them for formal trichological examination and identification. This I did, sending them to Danish zoologist Lars Thomas, based at the Zoological Museum of the University of Copenhagen, who has considerable experience in hair analysis. And to ensure absolute objectivity during their examination, I did not provide him with any information whatsoever as to the source of the hair samples.

However, when Lars provided me with his findings, and which here on ShukerNature are now revealed for the very first time online, I was extremely surprised. This was because his initial, provisional examination of them had indicated to him that they were definitely not felid, but likely not canid either, seeming instead to be most probably of mustelid origin, and, more specifically, from the genus Mustela (containing weasels, stoats, ferrets, and polecats). Yet he was far from happy about this, because the hairs had also presented him with various anomalous features that he had not anticipated finding.

In particular, their pigment granules looked very strange, and Lars wondered if they had received chemical treatment, because a lot of the colour in outlying regions of the hairs seemed unnatural, and therefore had possibly been dyed. Moreover, he mentioned to me that chemical treatment can make pigment granules split, thus making canid or felid hairs look like mustelid hairs, because pigment granules in the latter are clearly separate, whereas they are not in canid and felid hairs.

I then provided Lars with full details of the hair samples' origin, knowing that he had heard of (but never examined) the Frasercot pelts, and I also sent him some photographs of Mark's specimen. After receiving my news and pictures, Lars then conducted a more detailed examination of the hair samples, which included sectioning one of the hairs – whereupon he discovered that it was round in cross-section. Crucially, this eliminated mustelids, because their hairs are oval or elliptical in cross-section. He also discovered that some of the hairs showed signs of heat damage and of being compressed, some of them being completely flat in very specific areas, as if they had been under pressure.

Needless to say, this would be the case if the edge of a heated stamping device had been applied to them – which in turn is exactly what my mother had described concerning the artificial application of the Frasercot patterning on fur coats that she had seen. In addition, when Lars rubbed some of the darkest hairs with ethanol and various other solvents on a Q-tip, he was actually able to rub off some of the colouring. Consequently, he informed me that he now had no doubt that the hairs had indeed been somehow artificially treated and dyed.

An independent confirmation of his findings came unexpectedly when, while subsequently browsing online in the hope of finding further photos of Frasercot pelts, I revisited Bill Benson's Flickr albums and discovered that although his earlier-mentioned missing Frasercot pelt photo had not reappeared there, a second one was present in a different album by him. He had snapped it on 26 September 2006, and it shows an extremely large Frasercot pelt being held up by its street vendor, somewhere in eastern China (it is viewable here). However, whereas all previous Frasercot pelts seen by me have exhibited a pristine pattern, in this one the pattern is very patchy in appearance, with certain portions faded or even entirely worn off, clearly demonstrating that it had been artificially applied. Benson affirmed again that these pelts are indeed dyed dog furs, and he also noted that poor vendors from western China come to eastern China in the hope of selling their wares.

Just as the riddle of the Frasercot pelts finally seemed solved, however, a further mystery arose concerning them. Prior to receiving the results of Lars's examination of the hair samples from Mark's specimen, I had discovered online a photograph of yet another Frasercot-patterned pelt – but crucially, unlike all previous ones encountered by me, this was not a detached pelt. Instead, it was a livedog, yet whose fur bore the characteristic fish-scale scalloping of the Frasercot pattern!

The only information accompanying this remarkable, currently unique example was that the photograph had allegedly been snapped by a Mr Richard Brooks on the Indonesian island of Bali. I have spent considerable time trying to trace Mr Brooks, but all to no avail. And so, due to its great significance to the subject in hand, I'm including a small, low-resolution version of his photo here on a strictly Fair Use, educational, non-commercial basis only, acknowledging fully that Mr Brooks is its copyright holder.

Of course, in this age of readily-available photo-manipulation techniques, it needs to be stressed here that the worrying possibility of this photograph actually being the result of one such process cannot be ruled out, especially as its supposed originator has so far resisted all attempts to be traced and his name may therefore be fictitious, just a pseudonym.

What makes this living Frasercot-patterned canine specimen so fascinating if indeed genuine, however, is that clearly its pattern could not have been applied to it by a mechanical, heat-stamping device. So as the Frasercot pattern is of artificial, man-made design, it must have been applied to the dog's fur by being painstakingly painted upon it, and surely with the dog fully anaesthetised while this very delicate process was being performed (having said that, the spots on this live dog are rather bigger than those on all Frasercot pelts currently recorded, so it would have been less difficult to apply them to it).

The obvious question to be asked here is why anyone should wish to perform such an elaborate form of decoration upon a live dog anyway. But perhaps its Frasercot-adorned coat made it valuable or much sought-after as a pet, or even for sale as an exotic 'rare breed' to some unsuspecting tourist, and it is certainly not the first time that I have seen domestic animals with intricately-embellished coats.

For instance, there are photos of many different examples online involving dogs, including tiger-striped, leopard-spotted, and even black-and-white giant-panda-rendered versions (utilising chows - click here for photos). Also, while visiting Tijuana, Mexico, in 2004 I saw one of the famous 'Tijuana zebras' – in reality, donkeys that have been painted with stripes in order to look like zebras – being used for photo sessions with tourists.

So it would seem that after perplexing cryptozoologists and mainstream zoologists alike for many years, the mystifying Frasercot pelts are finally a (Chinese) puzzle no longer.

My sincere thanks to Mark Fraser, Lars Thomas, Dr Darren Naish, Jonathan McGowan, Martin Cotterill, and above all my late mother Mary Shuker for their greatly valued contributions to my Frasercot investigations; and additionally to Mark for so kindly loaning to me his Frasercot pelt for examination.


EPILOGUE – 19 April 2017

Today I discovered herethat Mark's Frasercot pelt was sold on the internet auction site Ebay UK on 28 June 2014, but at present I have no further details concerning this transaction or its new owner/whereabouts.

          Dodge,Charger SRT8, 2012   


The best performance sports car and outstanding quality from dodge in 2012 is Charger SRT8.The 2012 Dodge Charger ranks 5 out of 7 Affordable Large Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 14 published reviews and test drives of the Dodge Charger, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.With plenty of power and interior space, the 2012 Dodge Charger is an athletic alternative to competing affordable large cars.
Dodge offers up the Charger with the aforementioned Pentastar V-6 in SE and SXT trim levels, and the engine is good for a respectable 292 horsepower. Those with a healthier appetite can order up the Charger R/T, which comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 370 horsepower and capable of producing sub-seven-second runs from 0-60 mph. If you still want more, there’s the very-impressive Charger SRT8, which comes with a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 470 horsepower. The SRT8 will sprint from 0-60 in less than five seconds, delivering a satisfyingly deep exhaust note in the process.
The new Hemi’s intake features active air flaps that vary the ram length based on engine speed, and new variable cam timing increases the duration of the intake-valve opening with the goal of stuffing more air in the cylinder. Fuel economy, for what it’s worth, will be improved over that of the outgoing engine, although no figures have been revealed yet.this below showing the specification and feature for 2012 dodge charger SRT8.

Aggresive And Functional Exterior
Exclusive new front and rear fascias, along with a new rear spoiler, distinguish the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 with a high performance look.
The front grille, grille surround and Dodge crosshair feature high-gloss black finishes and the SRT badge. A newly sculpted hood features a 6.4 L (liter) badge and black air exhauster for added engine cooling.
In the rear, the Charger’s new signature “racetrack” taillamp design with 164 illuminating LEDs receives new 4-inch round dual exhaust tips and an SRT8 decklid badge to boldly show the Street and Racing Technology DNA.
Unique side-sill cladding is painted to match the body color.
A newly designed underbody belly pan features integrated brake ducting to improve cooling and brake fade performance at all four corners.

Suspension and Handling Improvements
Performance handling requires maximum grip, and the all-new Dodge Charger now holds .90 g. Aiding in the fastback four-door car's improved road-holding capabilities is more aggressive front- and rear-camber geometry.
Set at -1.0 degrees in the front and -1.75 degrees in the rear, Dodge Charger is set up for high-speed cornering with its tires leaning inboard at the top relative to the body.
All-new premium hydrobushings combined with new monotube shock absorbers, spring rates and redesigned front and rear multi-link suspension geometries improve performance handling dynamics, smooth braking characteristics and deliver a more comfortable ride.
Among other suspension .5-inch (13 mm) tighter tire-to-fender fitment, a .15-inch (4 mm) lowered overall ride height and larger 19-inch wheels with P235/55R19 all-season performance tires.
Beyond its lower center of gravity, the Dodge Charger R/T AWD also gains improved handling due to new upper- and lower-control arms and shock-absorber bushings. In addition new half shafts feature high-precision bearing units that are sealed for added quality and durability.
Transmitting the Dodge Charger's maximum grip to the driver is an all-new electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS) system that features 25 percent quicker steering, more precise road feel and improved on-center tracking while reducing steering noise and fuel consumption.

          Burgess Boys   





Strout, Elizabeth. The Burgess Boys. New York: Random House, 2013.

Call No.: F STR

Publisher's Description: Elizabeth Strout “animates the ordinary with an astonishing force,” wrote The New Yorker on the publication of her Pulitzer Prize–winning Olive Kitteridge. The San Francisco Chronicle praised Strout’s “magnificent gift for humanizing characters.” Now the acclaimed author returns with a stunning novel as powerful and moving as any work in contemporary literature.

Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan—the Burgess sibling who stayed behind—urgently calls them home. Her lonely teenage son, Zach, has gotten himself into a world of trouble, and Susan desperately needs their help. And so the Burgess brothers return to the landscape of their childhood, where the long-buried tensions that have shaped and shadowed their relationship begin to surface in unexpected ways that will change them forever.

With a rare combination of brilliant storytelling, exquisite prose, and remarkable insight into character, Elizabeth Strout has brought to life two deeply human protagonists whose struggles and triumphs will resonate with readers long after they turn the final page. Tender, tough-minded, loving, and deeply illuminating about the ties that bind us to family and home, The Burgess Boys is Elizabeth Strout’s newest and perhaps most astonishing work of literary art.

Librarian's Review: [One of our librarians received an advanced e-galley of this title for review. The following are her comments.] This is the story of the Burgess family. The two sons, Jim and Bob, are attorneys in New York. Their sister Susan still resides in Shirley Falls, Maine, their hometown. They are haunted by an accident which occurred when they were children, leaving their father dead. Bob has always felt inferior to his brother, partly as a repercussion to the traumatic event from childhood. The family comes together to defend Susan's son who is charged with a hate crime against the Somalis in the area. The characters are well-drawn, and the book is well-written. I should have loved it more than I did. I simply failed to connect with the characters. The author used some mild profanity in a few places. The biggest problem for me was that instead of using the word and moving on, she seemed to make sure that the reader noticed she was using the curse words and repeated them multiple times in rapid succession. I read an advanced electronic galley provided by the publisher through NetGalley.

          Naturalmente Intelligenti   

Cosa sappiamo di certo sul funzionamento del cervello, e in particolare sul cervello dei bambini? Pur essendo l'organo più misterioso del nostro organismo, sappiamo tanto, ma non tutto. Che cos'è che ci rende intelligenti?

Che cosa può rendere intelligenti i bambini? Perché alcuni lo sono più di altri? E perché certi bambini che sembrano non esserlo, in realtà lo sono?

Sappiamo che la forza dell'intelligenza non scaturisce da un unico principio perfetto ma dalla nostra vasta e differenziata diversità. Sappiamo che lo sviluppo cerebrale dei bambini ha un bisogno esclusivo, totale, delle cure affettuose e continue dei genitori.

Sappiamo che un ambiente pedagogico adatto può guidare un bambino ad apprendere processi grandi e complicati a partire da processi più piccoli, così come sappiamo che il cervello di un neonato non è pronto a sopravvivere nel mondo senza un adeguato, costante insegnamento  il che, in altri termini, significa che ai nostri bambini dobbiamo insegnare tutto.

Ma sappiamo anche che nessun tipo di educazione potrà mai cambiare il fatto che più o meno la metà del potenziale intellettivo del bambino è su base genetica. Conosciamo tutti bambini che per qualche ragione sembrano essere maturati troppo in fretta o troppo lentamente rispetto al loro sviluppo in altri ambiti, e in pratica siamo portati a parlare di intelligenza perché ci è impossibile comprendere tale meccanismo attraverso la semplice osservazione di ciò che il bambino fa.

Da anni John Medina è apprezzato per i suoi studi e per gli illuminati saggi sul funzionamento del cervello.

Per i lettori è facile stabilire con i suoi libri un rapporto di tenace affezione perché Medina è uno dei non moltissimi uomini di scienza che sanno spiegare nel migliore dei modi le cose più difficili. Ed è proprio il caso di questo suo nuovo libro, concepito per rispondere alle domande concrete che milioni di genitori si pongono nei confronti dei loro figli.

Le quali possono essere condensate in una sola: che cosa si può fare per crescere bambini felici e intelligenti?

Secondo Medina, scienziato e sottile decifratore in quanto egli stesso padre di due figli di esperienza condivise con molti genitori, molto può essere fatto.

Frutto di anni di lavoro, in Naturalmente intelligenti confluisce un vasto complesso di nozioni derivanti dalla psicologia comportamentale nonché dalla biologia cellulare e molecolare, che John Medina riesce efficacemente a tradurre in chiare istruzioni pratiche nell'intento di assistere mamme e papà nel difficile compito di prendersi cura di un piccolo essere umano indifeso e di farlo crescere sano, felice intelligente.


          Le Confessioni di un Illuminato - Vol. 1 Remix   

Nuove rivelazioni si fanno strada e vengono a galla, un nuovo appassionante capitolo raccontato da Leo Zagami

In concomitanza con l'uscita americana di quello che è stato uno dei maggiori successi editoriali di Leo Lyon Zagami nel mondo, prima in Giappone e poi in Italia, l'autore anglo-italiano ritorna a proporre in una versione completamente rivista e aggiornata per la Harmakis Edizioni il suo libro ora denominato "Le Confessioni di un Illuminato Voi. 1 REMIX".

Con oltre 100 pagine di materiale inedito e citazioni autorevoli, a supporto di un'opera che ci descrive una realtà sconosciuta ai più, quella del Nuovo Ordine Mondiale.

Negli ultimi tempi persone come Obama e perfino Papa Francesco, hanno avvertito del pericolo rappresentato dai cosiddetti "Teorici della Cospirazione" visto la portata delle loro rivelazioni al mondo esterno.

Molte delle cose preannunciate da Zagami nella prima versione si sono poi materializzate, come il Papa Sudamericano o il fallimento delle Primavere arabe a favore di un possibile scenario da Armageddon, mostrandosi così sempre più reale e attendibile anche a coloro che erano scettici fino a poco tempo fa, e magari ridevano di queste cose.

Quest'opera che non ha ancora eguali nel suo settore, nonostante le successive imitazioni, ci regala in questa nuova versione, un'analisi ancora più concreta ed efficace oltre a proporci una dettagliata topologia e analisi delle Società segrete grazie a documenti inediti come nel caso del Manuale Segreto dell'Ordo Templi Orientis o della famosa Scheda 51, finora irreperibili al di fuori del network settario degli Illuminati, o testimonianze dirette dei loro membri intervistati dallo stesso Zagami.

Come sosteneva Primo Levi "se comprendere e impossibile, conoscere è necessario" e questa nuova versione denominata "Remix" dimostra non solo la maturità raggiunta dall'autore, ma è sicuramente un primo passo verso la conoscenza grazie alle prove concrete portate sul tavolo da una persona che ha vissuto sulla propria pelle le persecuzioni e il male della prigione invisibile che ci circonda.

Leggete e capirete dove il cammino di Zagami e di tutti noi ci sta portando, oltre le mere speculazioni.


          Le Confessioni di un Illuminato - Vol. 4   

Se credevate che Leo Lyon Zagami avesse detto tutto nella sua famosa "Trilogia" vi state sbagliando di grosso.

L'autore vuole ora completare la sua opera di divulgazione forse più conosciuta "Le Confessioni di un illuminato " portandoci con il volume 4 un gradino più alto, li dove nessun profano, o meglio non iniziato ai segreti delle varie scuole misteriche, si è e mai spinto fino ad ora, con un lavoro che oseremmo definire di portata storica dove si mostra con estrema chiarezza da dove veniamo e chi ci guida da millenni nelle nostre scelte, attraverso Profeti, Iniziati e Maghi, che nel corso di tutte le epoche hanno attinto da una comune sorgente di conoscenza ultra-terrestre e magica conosciuta solo dall'elite degli illuminati.

Capiamo finalmente chi sono sono realmente questi Superiori Sconosciuti, questi Capi Segreti che guidano da sempre la Massoneria, gli illuminati e i vari gruppi di potere a loro associati, e con Zagami per la prima volta avremmo accesso ai loro rituali segreti per capire quella che è a tutti gli effetti una realtà aliena con implicazioni che nei mesi e anni a seguire saranno sempre più evidenti e daranno un nuovo significato al fenomeno UFO.

L'autore ci parla poi per delle Porte Dimensionali, quei cancelli sull'infinito usati dagli illuminati per far entrare le loro entità preter-umane in questo mondo, e lo fa in maniera scientifica usando le ultimissime scoperte della fisica quantistica a supporto delle sue rivelazioni.

Analizzando quindi segreti inaccessibili ai più, Zagami ci invita a ridiscutere la nostra realtà con verità sconcertanti sulla tradizione misterica e le sue scuole legate ad esseri con poteri soprannaturali fin dall'antichità, veri e propri dei, che oggi noi chiamiamo alieni o UFO ma sono in realtà molto di più. Dai segreti dell'esoterismo musulmano, a quelli della magia sessuale, tutto o quasi vi verrà rivelato in questo testo sconvolgente che esce in un momento storico ben preciso per illuminarci tutti ora nell'Hic et Nunc.

Una sorta di manuale dell'illuminazione da leggere e rileggere negli anni a venire oltre che un libro che osiamo definire il migliore dell'autore.


          Una Realtà Nascosta   

Il calendario Maya, il 2012, le Teorie del Governo Ombra, il Nuovo Ordine Mondiale, gli Illuminati, la manipolazione dell'informazione, tasse e debi­to pubblico; profezie e molto altro.

Questi e altri argomenti vengono affrontatiti questo libro che offre al lettore informazioni inedite e un punto di vista originale.

Eventi ed elementi che sembrano molto lonta­ni tra loro fanno in realtà parte di un preciso progetto?


          Cronache dalla Spirale del Tempo    

In questo nuovo e eccezionale libro, David Icke prosegue e completa il lavoro iniziato oltre 10 anni fa.

Partendo dai fatti politici del dopo 11 settembre e soffermandosi sulla situazione attuale in Iraq, Icke aggiorna gli sviluppi del piano che intende trasformare il pianeta in un grande stato dittatoriale dove non esisterà più alcuna libertà.
Il controllo e la cospirazione avvengono in una dimensione parallela da cui agisce quel gruppo "gli Illuminati" che, dai tempi dei Sumeri e dei Babilonesi, sta controllando l'evoluzione dell'essere umano per raggiungere i propri scopi di dominio.

In Cronache dalla spirale del Tempo, l'autore ci dimostra scientificamente come il mondo che pensiamo reale non sia altro che una illusione, un sogno lucido e manipolato che egli chiama la Matrice e ci mostra come trovare una via d'uscita che ci renderà finalmente liberi e ci riporterà a casa.


          I Maestri Invisibili del Nuovo Ordine Mondiale    

Un saggio che rivela i retroscena sui rapimenti alieni e possessioni diaboliche, squarciando le menzogne millenarie con cui la chiesa e gli Illuminati ingannano e manipolano la popolazione. Un libro ricco di documenti, interviste e fotografie che vi condurrà a scoprire i compromessi degli Illuminati con le forze infere e il tributo di sangue che queste richiedono.

Dalle pagine di questo libro scopriremo tutte le tecniche più avanzate che i governanti Occulti, tramite agenzie di spionaggio, società segrete, media e Hollywood, utilizzano per controllare le masse, dal nazismo a oggi.

CHEMTRAILS ARMAGEDDON ALUMINUM WHITE OUT! BYE BYE BLUE SKY! CENTRAL MINNESOTA 6-27-17 DEATH FROM ABOVE AGAIN!! THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!
Chemtrails
The secret government or Deep State has been spraying the skies throughout North America since late 1997 on an almost daily basis with substances that were first identified as "mystery contrails", but later were dubbed "chemtrails" by investigative reporter and author William Thomas. When questioned, military and government officials either deny any knowledge of these spraying's outright or they offer unbelievable and ludicrous explanations that only a moron could believe. These spraying's are making many people sick and are the first phase of a bio-warfare operation designed to effect wide scale population reduction .. What can YOU do and Find out what's going on: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org

By cooperating in secret with jet fuel manufacturers, government agents have carefully kept the massive chemtrail efforts completely under wraps. Snowden added, “I am only revealing this program because there is no oversight in the scientific community, no public discussion, and little concern for the side-effects which are well known only to a few privileged people interested in continuing the decades-long chemtrail program in secret.”

Because climate change is a threat to U.S. agriculture, it has been labeled a national security issue. With the influence and cooperation of Monsanto, a secret Geoengineering lab dubbed Muad’Dib has been operating since the late 1960s, and the chemtrail program is often referred to by insiders as its “crown jewel.” Muad’Dib has aimed to protect North America’s climate at all costs – The chemtrail program has been incredibly easy to hide, especially with the cooperation of jet fuel companies, a crucial part of the military-industrial complex. Snowden said, “The chemicals which are released by passenger airplanes have been covertly introduced as ‘additives,’ supposedly to improve efficiency. Only as the plane reaches cruising velocity does the heat and atmospheric pressure cause a chemical reaction that synthesizes the top secret carbon-trapping molecule. This process is imperfect, and many of the by-products are incredibly dangerous even in trace quantities. The most dangerous thing is that although chemtrails are keeping the climate of the U.S. reasonably stable, citizens are bombarded every day with an invisible rain of carbon-laden molecules, and the effect on health is totally unknown.”

epcot wdw walt disney world siemens partnership illuminations spaceship earth

Siemens is one company that many Disney fans are familiar with, mostly due to its partnership with the huge company. However, that is all about to change. It has been revealed that Siemens is officially ending its partnership with Disney Parks, and it will no longer be a corporate sponsor after a decade together. While this will be a huge change, many are starting to wonder what it may mean for Illuminations and Spaceship Earth at Epcot.

The Siemens Corporation has partnered with Disney Parks around the country since 2007, and they have had their name attached to many of the most popular attractions and shows. Even though it seems as if things have been going well, the company decided not to renew their deal once it expires, according to Laughing Place.

          Beatrice Valli ha partorito: è nata Bianca, papà Marco al settimo cielo   
Beatrice Valli ha partorito
Beatrice Valli ha partorito! Marco Fantini è diventato papà per la prima volta, la figlioletta Bianca è venuta al mondo nella tarda serata di giovedì 29 giugno 2017 e sta bene, come anche mamma Bea. I fan hanno seguito con attesa e trepidazione questa lunga giornata, soprattutto dopo che l'ex corteggiatrice aveva annunciato di essere corsa in ospedale e che, di conseguenza, il travaglio era cominciato. Ma non solo per questo, perché papà Marco non era con lei inizialmente, bensì a Londra!

Anche per questo i fan hanno tenuto d'occhio i profili social dei neo genitori, e noi abbiamo fatto lo stesso in realtà, per capire se Marco sarebbe arrivato in tempo per la nascita della figlia Bianca. Ci spiegheranno tutto con calma, ma ciò che conta è che l'ex tronista non abbia affatto perso tempo e che terminati i suoi impegni di lavoro, che lo hanno portato in Inghilterra in questi giorni, si sia precipitato in ospedale a conoscere la figlia e ad abbracciare mamma Beatrice, che ha iniziato il travaglio ieri sera.

E così sono bastate poche parole di Marco, un'ora prima che pubblicasse la foto della manina di  Bianca Fantini, la figlia avuta da Beatrice, per far capire che stava arrivando: lo ha proprio scritto, "Una nuova emozione, una nuova Vita. Sto arrivando" ha fatto sapere papà Fantini e chissà che questo non sia stato un modo per far capire che Beatrice stava partorendo in quei momenti.  Da ciò che ha scritto zia Ludovica Valli su Instagram, però, pare che Bianca sia nata proprio all'arrivo di Marco! Ha voluto aspettare il suo papà prima di venire al mondo. Speriamo non sia svenuto, vista la reazione avuta quando Bea gli ha detto di essere in dolce attesa!

Le sorelle Valli anche attendevano con ansia la nascita della nipotina: Alessandro, il primogenito, era con zia Eleonora e lei come anche Ludovica scriveva messaggi su Instagram Stories come "B. ti stiamo aspettando". Poi i primi messaggi dopo la nascita e la commozione condivisa sui social.

Il momento tanto atteso e desiderato da tutti è arrivato, Beatrice ha partorito, Bianca è nata e papà Marco è arrivato poco dopo la sua nascita, se non durante il parto. Seguiremo la coppia e scopriremo la famiglia Fantini adesso che c'è un quarto componente: benvenuta, piccola Bianca!


Qui di seguito potete leggere le news su Beatrice incinta pubblicate finora.

10/02/2017. È una femminuccia!

Beatrice è incinta di una femminuccia! Sì, Marco Fantini diventerà papà di una bimba: non male, per essere la sua primogenita, dato che i papà impazziscono per le femminucce. Almeno così si dice! Va detto, e ricordato sempre, che nella famiglia c'è già un piccolo di casa, Alessandro, il figlio che l'ex corteggiatrice ha avuto quando era molto giovane. Che poi giovane lo è ancora, eppure Beatrice diventerà mamma per la seconda volta e stavolta è femmina!

Come lo ha annunciato la futura mamma? Nel modo più normale possibile, con discrezione, come è sempre successo per ogni avvenimento nella vita insieme a Marco, pure quando ha annunciato di essere incinta. Insomma, lo abbiamo dovuto dedurre noi! Noi come tutti coloro che la seguono su Instagram: sì, perché mamma Beatrice si è dedicata allo shopping oggi per i suoi piccoli e ha comprato sia per Alessandro sia per colei che nascerà; usiamo il femminile, perché Bea ha comprato vestitini rosa! 

"Surprise 🎀 #newbaby", ha scritto su Instagram pubblicando la foto dei suoi primi acquisti per la figlia di Marco Fantini. Al fiocco rosa, poi, non c'era bisogno di aggiungere altro. La futura mamma continuerà a parlare della gravidanza, sicuramente, ma intanto siamo molto felici della notizia: Marco e Beatrice aspettano una femmina e il piccolo Alle sarà un perfetto fratello maggiore, ne siamo certi!

Approfondisci: ecco cosa ancora non sai su Marco Fantini

13/12/2016. Le prime parole di Marco che commuovono

Beatrice Valli è incinta, Marco Fantini diventerà papà e noi siamo tutti felicissimi per loro! Sono arrivate le prime parole che commuovono i fan, anche se i futuri genitori non hanno ancora rilasciato dichiarazioni ufficiali sulla gravidanza, ma parlano di più fra le righe. Si comportano, insomma, come una coppia normale, pure se hanno più di 300mila persone che li seguono sui social network; nessun post per dire "sì, sono incinta", si comportano in modo totalmente normale, ma hanno trovato il modo per emozionare i fan, con una foto di Beatrice incinta e Marco che appoggiato sul pancione.

La coppia ha trascorso qualche giorno a Berlino, insieme al piccolo Alle, e proprio in terra tedesca ha scattato la prima foto di famiglia, in una magica atmosfera natalizia: Marco è seduto, Beatrice è in piedi accanto a lui ed è stata fotografata in posa laterale, mostrando tutta la bellezza della pancia che cresce, su cui Marco appoggia dolcemente la testa. Sullo sfondo un albero di Natale illuminatissimo e a fare da contorno sono le parole dell'ex tronista: "❤️ #family #berlin #MF #youeme".

Non è la prima foto di Beatrice incinta che vediamo, ma è la prima che loro decidono di postare sui social network; l'altra volta, infatti, è stata un'amica della futura mamma bis a pubblicarla e a rendere noto che Beatrice e Marco diventeranno presto genitori. Scoprimmo così che, dopo tante altre volte in cui non era vero, questa volta Beatrice è davvero incinta e insieme al suo Marco coroneranno uno dei sogni più grandi: avere una famiglia.

2/12/2016. Beatrice è incinta, Marco diventa papà

Possiamo gioire: Beatrice Valli è incinta davvero stavolta! Marco Fantini sarà presto papà: non possiamo quantificare esattamente questo "presto", perché non sappiamo di quanti mesi sia in dolce attesa la bellissima Beatrice, ma possiamo immaginare che sia intorno al quarto, visto che il pancino è ormai evidente e impossibile da nascondere o camuffare! Probabilmente la coppia non ne ha neanche intenzione, ma allo stesso tempo Marco e Beatrice stanno comunque vivendo questo momento di estrema felicità in privato, come hanno fatto per ogni cosa che è successa nella loro storia.

I fan della coppia non vedevano l'ora di ricevere questa splendida notizia e oggi noi siamo altrettanto contenti di darvi il buongiorno con Marco e Beatrice presto genitori: avranno presto un figlio, ma possiamo dire che, mentre Beatrice è già mamma del piccolo Alessandro, che ha spento 4 candeline pochi giorni fa, Marco ha avuto modo di tenersi in allenamento come papà, perché ha uno splendido rapporto con il figlio di Beatrice.

Si amano davvero e davvero tanto, per questo avere un bambino che sia frutto del loro amore sarà una gioia immensa, ne siamo certi; sarà contento anche Alle, chissà se desidera un fratellino o una sorellina! Marco e Beatrice si sposeranno prima della nascita del piccolo, oppure dopo?

Per il momento ci accontentiamo di sapere che Beatrice è veramente incinta e renderà Marco papà e che hanno deciso di allargare la famiglia: non c'è ancora una dichiarazione ufficiale dei futuri genitori, ma il pancino di Beatrice sfoggiato nell'abito aderente blu, indossato in un recentissimo evento, non lascia spazio a dubbi.

Aspettiamo il momento in cui decideranno di condividere con i fan la felicità di un figlio: Marco e Beatrice annunceranno presto la gravidanza, ne siamo certi, ma con i loro tempi. Noi siamo molto contenti anche del fatto che sono lontani ormai i tempi di crisi che li avevano portati a lasciarsi, anche se per pochi mesi visto che in estate sono subito tornati insieme, ma il loro amore è forte e noi facciamo tutti il tifo per loro: la famiglia Fantini accoglierà presto un nuovo arrivato! O nuova arrivata?

Marco e Beatrice genitori: stavolta è veramente incinta

In ogni caso, è da quando si sono scelti a Uomini e Donne, in un ormai lontano fine maggio 2014, che Marco e Beatrice sognano di avere un figlio: già dopo pochi mesi, infatti, desideravano allargare la famiglia, ma hanno comunque aspettato e rispettato dei tempi. Poi c'è stato un malinteso, quando hanno usato l'hashtag "presto in 4" e hanno, involontariamente, creato il caso: quella volta non era vero, si erano scusati per il malinteso e spiegato che si riferivano all'arrivo di un cagnolino.

Quella volta nessun bambino era in arrivo, ma oggi è incinta davvero: Beatrice Valli e Marco Fantini saranno genitori splendidi e affettuosi, esattamente come lo sono stati con Alessandro. Siamo molto contenti per questa coppia di Uomini e Donne, di cui troverete tutte le news in questa raccolta, e vogliamo fare loro i nostri più sinceri e calorosi auguri per tutto! Il pancino di Beatrice non potranno smentirlo, stavolta...

put in words:


The SB2011 installation consists of 2 videos and graphite drawings. Closest to the entrance is a video that runs on loop (duration: 15min). This video is computer generated from a single photograph of a tree that was shot with night vision. In the video, the tree revolves 180° and there is substantial interpolation and grain because the computer did not have sufficient information to generate a 360° model from one image.

There are two entrances that leads to a long narrow corridor in cul-de-sac fashion. All walls are a wash of matt-black, and on them are graphite drawings of "bursts". These shapes were generated from the crown of trees that were photographed in the dark, with night vision. At the dead-end of the corridor is the second video on a plasma screen (duration 2min 42 sec). It features flora that is luminous in the dark.

The graphite drawings on black walls receives 3 sources of light, sunlight from the door-less entrance; the overhead projection from the video; and the flicker emitted from the plasma screen. The middle portion of the corridor is pitch dark, but features some of these drawings if discovered by other means of illumination.
          Movie review: Steve Carell pulls double duty in ‘Despicable Me 3’    
It’s downright despicable what Illumination Entertainment has done to the once-promising “Despicable Me” franchise. The third entry arrives in no better shape than either the second movie or its spinoff, “Minions.” Despite a double performance by the always-entertaining Steve Carell, “Despicable Me 3” is, well, uninspired — except for the 80s music that’ll keep Mom and Dad awake. Madonna’s “Get into the Groove” [...]

          Napoleon: A Life by Andrew Roberts. PART 8 of 8.   
Author Photo: (Longwood House, Saint Helena: site of Napoleon's captivity) http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/contact http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/schedules http://johnbatchelorshow.com/blog Twitter: @batchelorshow Napoleon: A Life by Andrew Roberts. PART 8 of 8. An Amazon Best Book of the Month, November 2014: There have been many books about Napoleon, but Andrew Roberts’ single-volume biography is the first to make full use of the ongoing French publication of Napoleon’s 33,000 letters. Seemingly leaving no stone unturned, Roberts begins in Corsica in 1769, pointing to Napoleon’s roots on that island—and a resulting fascination with the Roman Empire—as an early indicator of what history might hold for the boy. Napoleon’s upbringing—from his roots, to his penchant for holing up and reading about classic wars, to his education in France, all seemed to point in one direction—and by the time he was 24, he was a French general. Though he would be dead by fifty one, it was only the beginning of what he would accomplish. Although Napoleon: A Life is 800 pages long, it is both enjoyable and illuminating. Napoleon comes across as whip smart, well-studied, ambitious to a fault, a little awkward, and perhaps most importantly, a man who could turn on the charm when he needed to. Through his portrait, Roberts seems to be arguing two things: that Napoleon was far more than just a complex, and that his contributions to the world greatly surpassed those of the evil dictators that some compare him to. “The historian, like the orator,” Roberts quotes Napoleon as saying, “must persuade. He must convince.” I, for one, am convinced. A fascinating read. –Chris Schluep --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review Praise for Napoleon “An epically scaled new biography . . . Roberts brilliantly conveys the sheer energy and presence of Napoleon the organizational and military whirlwind who, through crisp and incessant questioning, sized up people and problems and got things done. . . . His dynamism shines in Roberts’s set-piece chapters on major battles like Austerlitz, Jena, and Marengo, turning visionary military maneuvers into politically potent moments.” —The New York Times Book Review “Roberts is a masterly storyteller. . . . I would recommend his book to anyone seeking an accessible chronicle, rich in anecdote, of Napoleon’s fantastic story.” —Max Hastings, The Wall Street Journal “With his customary flair and keen historical eye, Andrew Roberts has delivered the goods again. This is the best one volume biography of Napoleon in English for the last four decades. A tour de force that belongs on every history lover’s bookshelf!” —Jay Winik, bestselling author of The Great Upheaval and April 1865 “Is another long life of Napoleon really necessary? On three counts, the answer given by Andrew Roberts’s impressive book is an emphatic yes. The most important is that this is the first single-volume general biography to make full use of the treasure trove of Napoleon’s 33,000-odd letters, which began being published in Paris only in 2004. Second, Roberts, who has previously written on Napoleon and Wellington, is a masterly analyst of the French emperor’s many battles. Third, his book is beautifully written and a pleasure to read.” —The Economist “Napoleon remade France and much of Europe in his fifteen years in power and proved himself one of history’s greatest military commanders. Roberts’s access to Napoleon’s thirty-three thousand letters, only recently available, allowed him to create a fully human portrait of this larger-than-life figure.” —The Wall Street Journal, Holiday Gift Guide “A huge, rich, deep, witty, humane and unapologetically admiring biography that is a pleasure to read. The Napoleon painted here is a whirlwind of a man—not only a vigorous and supremely confident commander, but an astonishingly busy governor, correspondent and lover, too. . . .

          Milloy's National Post Spin is Textbook PR Manipulation   

Pure junkThe column that Junk Scientist Steven J. Milloy wrote in the National Post Aug. 2, 2006 is a textbook example - a really reprehensible example - of the kind of PR spin that is perverting the global climate change conversation.

Milloy is rising in defence of General Motors, DaimlerChrysler Corp. and the Association of Automobile Manufacturers, all of whom are suing the State if California for trying to strengthen its emissions legislation. In its own defence, in a pretrial discovery motion, California had asked for information on how much these companies were paying a group of “scientists” who are the most outspoken climate change skeptics in the United States.

This is a reasonable request - a quest for transparency and honesty in the conversation. These spokesters (S. Fred Singer, James Glassman, David Legates, Richard Lindzen, Patrick J. Michaels, Thomas Gale Moore, Robert C. Balling, Jr., Sherwood B. Idso, Craig D. Idso, Keith E. Idso, Sallie Baliunas, Paul Reiter, Chris Homer [sic], Ross McKitrick, Julian Morris, Frederick Seitz, Willie Soon, and Steven Milloy) have presented themselves as experts in the public debate and have lobbied hard to undermine public support for emission regulation. It's only fair that we should know the extent to which they have done so because auto and energy industry majors have paid them for their opinions.

We don't actually have to ask the question about Milloy; it's long since been proved that his advocacy skills are for sale to the tobacco industry and, more recently, the energy industry. Yet here he stands accusing California of “intimidation” and saying the State is trying to “gag” climate skeptics. In asking for information that will be illuminating to the taxpaying public, he claims the State is challenging his freedom of speech.

Well, if Milloy is going to be embarrassed by what the State uncovers (and he has previously seemed immune to embarrassment), that speaks to the nature of his activities, not the perfidy of his interrogators.

Milloy then wanders off into freelance slander, denying the central role that our colleague Ross Gelbspan had in winning a Boston Globe Pulitzer Prize, and questioning Ross's character. Milloy repeats this lie at every opportunity even though Ross has been endlessly patient in explaining his involvement, and Ross's colleagues have been endlessly gracious in attesting to his truthfulness.

(For documentation of Gelbspan's role as co-recipient of a 1984 Pulitzer prize story, see a book published by The Boston Globe,  the issue of the paper which published his photo and bio under the headline “Globe Staffers Who Won Pulitzer Prizes,” a letter from the Mayor of Boston congratulating Gelbspan on the prize, a resolution by the newspaper's Board of Directors congratulating him for the prize, and a letter from the project's lead reporter (now a senior editor at the Wall Street Journal), attesting to his central role in the project.)

One final point: It's interesting that this column appeared in the business pages of the National Post, and not, say, in a reputable newspaper in California. Perhaps the U.S. dailies have a different standard than the Post when it comes to accepting self-serving commentary from paid industry apologists.

          The Search for Netaji: New Findings   

by Dr. Purabi Roy
Hardbound
ISBN: 978-81-88908-07-3

This book is the result of years of academic research by Dr. (Professor) Purabi Roy and aims to understand one of the pervading puzzles of independent India - what happened to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose?

Despite reports by three different Indian governments (1956, 1974 and 2006) to settle the question of the reported death of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at the Taihoku airport in Formosa (Taipei) in 1945, the question of exactly how this elusive Bengali actually died is yet to have a definitive answer.

Dr. Purabi Roy used her extensive Russian language skills to translate primary sources that may shed new light on the mystery of Netaji's death. Her aim was not to form a conclusion but to lay out all the documents from Russian, British and Indian archives for further analysis. For anyone who loves history and a good mystery, the book is both illuminating and thought provoking.

          DEEP IN THE WOODS, Vampire Babylon, Book Six   

Below the streets, the vampires gather. Erotic, beautiful, secretive…dangerous. Dawn Madison, an ex-stunt woman, takes up the hunt for these enthralling creatures, first in Hollywood, then in London. As the Undergrounds’ secrets spill into her own life, shaping it, illuminating her own muddled past, she must face these underground Vampire Babylons.
Or die trying.

The Vampire Babylon series uses trilogy arcs to tell one basic story, much like the way JK Rowling used seven books that didn’t solve every plot thread book-by-book to tell Harry Potter’s story. While each individual novel focuses on a central mystery that’s solved by the end, the three books together build character and mythology arcs/mysteries until everything culminates in the third books of the trilogies.

The first trilogy is known as the “Hollywood trilogy.” It contains these books:

NIGHT RISING
MIDNIGHT REIGN
BREAK OF DAWN

The second trilogy continues the adventures of Dawn Madison and the vampire hunting team, and this three-book arc is known as the “London trilogy.” It consists of:

A DROP OF RED
THE PATH OF RAZORS
DEEP IN THE WOODS

On March 2, DEEP IN THE WOODS, Book Six, is being released in trade format, and it completes the second trilogy of the Vampire Babylon series.

          A Streetcar Named "Family Bashing"   


bfi-00n-xet.jpg

Long before feminists portrayed men as rapists,

Tennessee Williams depicted Stanley Kowalski in these terms. 

A Streetcar Named Desire shows how much of 

modern "art" is Communist agitprop.  

A Jewish producer, Irene Selznick and a gay playwright, Tennessee Williams,

used theatre to subvert the family. 




(from Sept 16, 2012)

By Henry Makow Ph.D.


In my view, feminism and "homosexual rights" mask a heterophobic Illuminati (Masonic Jewish) campaign to shred the social fabric.

One of the most celebrated plays in American Literature, A Streetcar Named Desire (1947) depicts men as "subhuman", and heterosexual marriage and family as frauds.

irene solo 1.jpg

The play, produced by Irene Selznick, left, contributed to the "modern" sense that human life has no inherent dignity, value or purpose. The play is an early example of how homosexuals, feminists and llluminati Jews subverted society by undermining heterosexuality. 

 In "The New Victorians" (1996), Rene Denfeld writes that feminists regard heterosexuality as the model for all oppression and homosexuality as the remedy.

"For many of today's feminists, lesbianism is far more than a sexual orientation, or even a preference. It is, as students in many colleges learn, an ideological, political and philosophical means of liberation of all women from heterosexual tyranny..." (45)


MALE AS "SUBHUMAN"


Long before feminists portrayed men as rapists, Tennessee Williams depicted Stanley Kowalski in these terms.

Stanley drives his sister-in-law, Blanche DuBois, insane by raping her while his wife Stella is in the hospital bearing his son. Blanche is portrayed as a tragic heroine; Stanley as the symbol of a brutish male-dominated society; and the traditional family as a fraud.

66170-004-A81F1013.jpg

Blanche DuBois has been driven out of her hometown for her immoral ways. Sick and broke, she takes refuge with her sister's archetypal traditional family.

Stanley, carrying the "red stained package from the butcher's" is the male protector and provider (Signet, p. 13).

The pregnant Stella, nurturing and malleable, is the epitome of the feminine. She believes in her husband: "it's a drive that he has" (50). The couple is madly, sensually in love.

There is a startling similarity between Tennessee Williams' homosexual perspective and the modern feminist one. As we shall see, guilt and self-loathing motivate both.

Blanche/Williams is determined to make heterosexuality appear pathological. Immediately on arrival, Blanche refers to Stella's home as "this horrible place." (19)

She reproaches Stella for not saving the plantation: "Where were you? In bed with your Pollack!" as if this were wrong (27).

When Stanley and Stella exchange blows, like a counselor at a womyn's shelter, Blanche urges Stella to leave her husband, open a shop, and become independent (67).

Stanley is genuinely repentant for hitting Stella although today this would be discounted as part of "the cycle of violence."

In fact, Blanche has made the pregnant Stella criticize and defy her husband for the first time. Now like her feminist sisters, the envious Blanche hopes the resulting violence will shatter the family altogether.

Stella ignores Blanche's appeals, and while cleaning says: "I'm not in anything that I want to get out of." (65). Blanche persists: "Stop! Let go of that broom. I won't have you cleaning up for him!" (66)

The feminist tone is again heard in Blanche's dehumanizing of Stanley.

tumblr_inline_obmdkeQ4bj1undx97_500.jpg

"There's something downright bestial about him! ... He acts like an animal, has animal's habits! ... There's even something subhuman something not quite to the stage of humanity yet! Yes, something ape-like about him, like one of those pictures I've seen in anthropological studies."(71)

Can you imagine a modern play in which a man says this of a Jew, a woman, an African American or a homosexual?

Stanley overhears this conversation, yet this supposedly ape-like creature does not react violently. He patiently tolerates Blanche although she has been living in their two-room apartment for six months.

Blanche, a demented pitiable woman, assumes the mantel of progress and civilization.

"God! Maybe we are a long way from being made in God's image, but Stella my sister; there has been some progress since then! ... In this dark march toward whatever it is we're approaching . . . Don't hang back with the brutes!" (72)

At the end of the play, Williams has achieved his unconscious goal: destroying the heterosexual male and family. Stella must ignore her sister's claims of rape in order to preserve her family. "I couldn't believe her story and go on living with Stanley," she says (133). Nevertheless, her family is bereft of moral legitimacy. In the movie version, Stella becomes a single mother. She leaves Stanley vowing never to return.


tw.jpegHOMOSEXUAL SELF-HATRED

There is more to this picture than meets the eye.

First, Tennessee Williams often said that he was Blanche DuBois.

The similarities are clear. Like Blanche Dubois, Williams was neurasthenic, lusted for Stanley, and was very promiscuous.

In the play, Blanche warns herself not to seduce the newspaper boy, "I've got to be good and keep my hands off children."(84)

Second, Tennessee Williams hated himself. His friend Gore Vidal said: "He is still too much the puritan not to believe in sin. At some deep level, Tennessee believes that the homosexual is wrong and the heterosexual is right. Given this all pervading sense of guilt, he is drawn in life and work to the idea of expiation, of death." (Ronald Hayman, "Tennessee Williams: Everyone Else is an Audience," 1993. p.xviii)

The guilt-ridden Williams/Blanche wants to be destroyed by Stanley to expiate his sins. (Blanche calls Stanley "my executioner" before she even meets him.)

But, in this psychodrama, Williams doesn't have the integrity to confess his guilt feelings and admit his death wish. He postures as a hero by identifying Blanche's defeat with the cause of progress and culture. Thus he transfers to Stanley and society the hatred he feels for himself.

Robert J. Stoller, an eminent psychiatrist and UCLA Professor, described this process in his book, "Perversion: The Erotic Form of Hatred" (1975).

"Homosexuals, taught self-hatred in childhood, persist in attracting punishment because in part they agree with the cruel straight society; they provoke attack in order to be humiliated . . .Revenge energizes aspects of many homosexuals' behaviour, erotic and otherwise. In order to salvage a sense of value from the foci of despair, they must strike back at all who have qualities like old enemies of their childhood." (201-202)


CONCLUSION

Tennessee Williams' Streetcar Named Desire is an example of how the financial elite used a homosexual playwright to negate the family and twist the way heterosexuals think about themselves and society. Many gays like some Jews are outsiders who want to force society confirm to them and their infirmities. 

Since heterosexuals have derived their meaning from family roles for millennia, Williams contributed to the malaise that characterizes the modern era.

Williams' example indicates that this destructive impulse, which feminists share, may spring from a deep sense of envy, failure, and self-loathing.

They missed the Streetcar of Life; now they want to blow up the tracks for everyone else.

Western Civilization Died on the Somme a Century Ago
On July 1,1916, General Douglas Haig, a Freemason, began the Battle of the Somme which by November resulted in the death of one million white, ChristianBritish patriots in their prime. Fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, lovers. War is a ruse by which the globalist satanic elite kills patriots under the guise of national duty.

from July 12, 2015
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

butchers1.jpg
About 10 million soldiers died in battle on both sides in World War One, one of the costliest wars in history.  The needless slaughter in trench warfare is usually portrayed by the Masonic-controlled media and education system as an unintended consequence. 

In fact, these wars are orchestrated by the Illuminati Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions to kill Christians in order to degrade Western civilization in advance of the Satanic NWO now clearly manifesting itself. (See, World War One- First Christian HolocaustRitual human sacrifice to their god Moloch may also be a factor.

All wars are designed to enrich and empower the bankers while destroying and demoralizing humanity. Warmongering "patriotism" is a ruse. The sooner gullible non-Satanists stop falling on a sword, the better.

I'm going to focus on the Battle of the Somme, one of the biggest battles of the first world war. My information is based on John Laffin's British Butchers and Bunglers of World War One, (1988, p. 63ff.) 

Haig-web-cropped.jpg
(left, Douglas Haig, Elgin Lodge #91)

Both General Douglas Haig, Commander in Chief, Western Front,  and his principal co-planner Sir Henry Rawlinson were Freemasons. The Somme offensive ("The Big Push") was intended to end the stalemate and win the war. The Allies had 700,000 men, a 7-1 numerical superiority. Haig and Rawlinson anticipated losing 500,000 men. 


The plan was simple: to bomb the Germans for five days and nights then walk to the enemy trench and kill the remaining soldiers or capture those who surrendered. 

However, after 5 days of bombing, the German trenches and their defences were barely scratched. The English neglected to reconnoitre or observe this from the air.  The Germans just had to shoot their machine guns, reload and shoot again. The same type of attack continued from the 1st of July until November 1916. Over a million men died; 58,000 on the first day.


On July 1 1916, 11 British divisions attacked on a 13-mile front. By 7.30 am the six German divisions finished breakfast, wiped their faces with their napkins, and carried their machine guns from comfortable deep cellars. They began spraying the attackers who were advancing in neat rows, "to maintain order." 

 
WF7.ADVANCE.JPG
A German machine gunner wrote, "We were surprised to see them walking, we had never seen that before. The officers went in front. One was carrying a walking stick...When we started to fire, we just had to load and reload. They went down in their hundreds. We didn't have to aim, we just fired into them. "

A German officer reported his impression of the attack. "Whole sections appeared to fall. All along the line, Englishmen could be seen throwing their arms into the air and collapsing, never to move again. Badly wounded rolled about in agony, while badly wounded crawled into shell-holes for shelter. "

yourcountryneedsyou.jpg
John Laffin: "Of the 110,000 men who attacked, 60,000 were killed or wounded on this one day. About 20,000 lay dead between the lines. Haig and Rawlinson were directly responsible for the assumption bombardment would cut barbed wire and render the Germans vulnerable.  The Germans lost an estimated 8000 men on July 1. 2000 were taken prisoner." (64) 

A hospital station dealt with 10,000 casualties in the first 48 hours. A surgeon wrote:  "Streams of ambulances a mile long waited to be unloaded. The whole area of the camp, a field of six acres, was completely covered with stretchers placed side-by-side, each with its suffering or dying man. We surgeons were hard at it in the operating theatre, a good hut holding four tables. Occasionally we made a brief look around to select from the thousands of patients those few we had time to save. It was terrible. (73) 

Haig's chronicler Colonel Boraston wrote that the attack, "bore out the conclusions of the British High Command, and amply justified the tactical methods employed." (No doubt these men were all Freemasons.) 

sons.jpg
Laffin writes: "This is an outrageous statement. It is more accurate to call 1 July 1916, as H. L'Etang does, 'probably the greatest disaster to British arms since Hastings....Certainly never before nor since has such wanton pointless carnage been seen...' (70)

Laffin bemoans the  complete "absence of cleverness" in the military strategy. He emphasizes that, "high casualties were a basic rule of the game and simply had to be accepted." (76)

Who knows how the world would be different if the cream of that generation of Christians had not been trampled into the mud of France in 1915-18?

There is simply no explanation for sending wave after wave of men to their slaughter other than that this was the deliberate goal. Any sane general would have stopped the attack as soon as it became apparent that the strategy was a failure. 

Western society is controlled by a satanic cult whose goal is to degrade and exploit humanity.
It's time we stopped we being complicit in our own destruction.

Oficialmente, la conferencia anual que este año se reúne por sexagésimo primera vez es "un foro para discusiones informales off-the-record sobre megatendencias y los principales problemas que enfrenta el mundo", pero aseguran quienes han (mal)gastado su vida investigando tan florida secta —con el conspiranoico pope exsoviético Daniel Estulin a la cabeza— que entre sus miembros se esconden el verdadero rey de reyes y el auténtico jefe de los jefes de Estado; y que su objetivo final es la creación de "un gobierno mundial único, con su propio ejército, moneda y religión" o, dicho en román paladino, "una red global de cárteles gigantes" que vendría a funcionar como Empresa Mundial S.A.

Illumination Entertainment/Universal Pictures(HOLLYWOOD) –– Despicable Me 3 hits theaters this weekend, and thanks to a new villain, there’s a strong 80s vibe to the whole animated adventure. Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig return as co-stars, with Carell telling ABC Radio that yes, he rocked some embarassing outfits in the 80s, but one item in particular sticks in his memory. “My brother gave me a Liz Claiborne jacket that was a powder blue, cotton sort of bomber/barracuda jacket, And it had the biggest shoulder pads,” Carell admits. The film’s new villain, Balthazar Bratt — voiced by South Park co-creator Trey Parker — was a former child star who played a young supervillain in a popular television series that ultimately got cancelled. He adopts his former character’s persona to become a real supervillain, who settles things with 80s dance battles. That isn’t Wiig’s style, but she thinks it’s “a great way to solve an argument.” “It’s just like, if you’re really mad at someone, just be like ‘All right, well, let’s dance...
          “Despicable Me 3” and “The House” lead this week’s new releases

          'Gru 3. Mi villano favorito' no es tan divertida como la primera pero es un digno pasatiempo para los fans de la saga   

Gru 3 Mi Villano Favorito Cartel

Illumination Entertainment ha construido una franquicia millonaria alrededor de Gru y sus minions. Por ahora ya habían estrenado tres largometrajes con un coste estimado total que ronda los 220 millones de dólares para luego conseguir una recaudación combinada de casi 2675. Una rentabilidad asombrosa y encima cada nueva película de la saga ha ingresado más que la anterior en taquilla, por lo que es lógico que sigan exprimiéndolo al máximo.

La gran duda ahora está en saber cuándo llegará el momento en el que el público -en general y no casos concretos- empiece a cansarse de estos personajes. Por mi parte, creo que aún falta para ello y también que ‘Gru 3. Mi villano favorito’ (‘Despicable Me 3’) va a arrasar en taquilla. No es que sea ninguna maravilla, pero sí supone una mejora respecto a la segunda entrega y un pasatiempo llevadero sin salirse en ningún momento de las coordinadas de la franquicia.

Las dos grandes novedades

Gru Villano

Dos son las principales novedades que presenta ‘Gru 3. Mi villano favorito’ para conquistar al público. Por un lado, el inevitable nuevo villano que en la versión original de la película tiene la voz de Trey Parker -los que la vean doblada al castellano tendrán que sufrir a Jorge Cremades-, uno de los creadores de ‘South Park’. Una antigua estrella televisiva que no supo llevar muy bien la cancelación de la serie que protagonizaba, llegando un punto en el que básicamente asumió su personalidad.

Siendo justos, este nuevo enemigo resulta estimulante sobre el papel y sus apariciones iniciales son bastante simpáticas, pero luego su presencia se diluye demasiado para centrarse más en la otra novedad que mencionaba antes: Dru, el hermano gemelo de nuestro protagonista. Ya desde el uso del blanco y el negro para definir su vestuario queda claro que su personalidad es diferente, algo que da pie a algún detalle curioso durante su presentación.

Lo que también estaba claro es que la película jamás iba a querer profundizar en la relación entre ambos más allá de sus posibilidades para dar pie a situaciones cómicas más o menos afortunadas y por la alianza que forman para acabar con el villano. Ahí la película vuelve a caer en errores propios de la saga en la débil construcción del conflicto entre ambos, algo que ya afectó a la dicotomía entre el bien y el mal de Gru en la primera entrega.

‘Gru 3: Mi villano favorito’, para pasar el rato y poco más.

Gru Dru

Al final lo que siempre le interesó a la saga es la diversión, que los niños se lo pasen en grande y que los adultos no desesperen. Para ello su mejor baza son los minions y en ‘Gru 3: Mi villano favorito’ hay dos detalles llamativos sobre estas simpáticas criaturas amarillas: salen menos de lo esperado -para quienes los odian seguirá siendo mucho, pero de verdad que su participación es más reducida y encima mayormente desligada de la historia principal- y el punto de partida de su trama es sorprendente por lo antipáticos que resultan durante unos momentos.

Con los minions a su bola, es más sencillo detectar lo que mencionaba antes, pero también que ‘Gru 3: Mi villano favorito’ tiene un guion mejor llevado que el de la segunda entrega. Es verdad que todo tira a lo básico, incluyendo la parte en la que Agnes intenta dar con un unicornio real, pero esa sencillez no es una excusa para la pereza -sensación que si me transmitió su predecesora-, si acaso en lo visual, donde los directores Eric Guillon, Kyle Balda y Pierre Coffin no se animan a dar un paso adelante. Una pena, que había varias escenas que hubieran dado mucho juego de hacerlo.

Agnes Gru

Lo cierto es que ‘Gru 3. Mi villano favorito’ no deja de ser una prolongación natural de lo ya visto hasta ahora, incluyendo detalles un tanto estrambóticos como su hermano gemelo pero esquivando el agotamiento al que parecía estar abocada. No tiene la chispa que convirtió a ‘Los Minions’ en la más disfrutable de la franquicia y en su libreto, firmado por Ken Daurio y Cinco Paul, hay varios detalles en los que mejor no fijarse demasiado.

A hacer eso último ayuda un ritmo ágil en el que además hay una mayor variedad de historias, tanto por la separación de los minions de la trama principal como por lo ya comentado de Agnes, para que ir saltando de una a otra ayude a no cansarse de ninguna. Así todo es más superficial por pura necesidad, pero es un sacrificio que puedo aceptar si así consiguen que no me aburra. Quizá sea escasa como principal virtud, pero aún recuerdo el bajón que fue ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ para su franquicia, algo que no pasa aquí.

En definitiva, ‘Gru 3. Mi villano favorito’ no va a conseguir nuevos fans para la saga, pero sí debería dejar satisfechos a quienes ya lo sean y podría recuperar para la causa a aquellos que no quedasen muy satisfechos con la segunda entrega. Más allá de eso, un entretenimiento más o menos bien llevado que se pasa rápido y no te deja con la sensación de haber malgastado tu tiempo o dinero.

User and Session Timeline Visualizations

Analyzing the behaviors of individual users can be illuminating. For example, by watching a customer use your product in-person you can learn where there are usability improvements you need to make. That’s why we’re making it even easier to filter down to individual users and session in Application Insights. In the Users, Sessions, and Events tools, you’ll find sections that give five sample users, sessions, or events, respectively, based on your query. We’re taking this a step further with a new timeline view when you click on sample sessions in the Sessions tool. This timeline makes it easy to browse the details, page views, and custom events of a session like a story. By stepping through a user’s experience in this way, you can infer difficulties or goals they may have had while using your product, then address these in a future release of your site.

          "Come Again?"   
Things we heard wrong as kids growing up in Canada, recalled on the eve of its 150thanniversary.

I don’t know if this was me, but there were certainly kids in my class, especially Jewish kids, who, when we stood up to recite the Lord’s Prayer – and we did; this was before the identify grievance era – at least someof those kids kicked off the morning recitation with the words,

“Our Father who art in Heaven
Harold be thy name…”
----------------------------------------------

This one, I know I did.

Again because they made us, at the end of every movie, Canadians were required, before leaving the theater, to stop and sing “God Save The King” (and, following his death so I guess God wasn’t listening, the Queen.) 

As a result of this Commonwealthian obligation, Canadians became really adept at anticipating when a movie was about to “Fade out”, which allowed us to make a dash for the exits before the recorded band – I believe it was recorded – struck up the introduction, and we were required to stand still and hail the reigning sovereign, who, given the time difference, was probably asleep.

There was the concluding portion in the British National Anthem (and ours until 1967) that I believe I got wrong for some time, that went,

“Santor victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign orious
God save the Queen.
----------------------------------------------

Finally, Canada’s backup national anthem after “O, Canada,”, the Canadian counterpart to “God Bless America” – I don’t know why you would need two of them; maybe in case the original anthem gets sick – called “The Maple Leaf Forever.”  (The maple leaf being our national symbol as well as the name of a hockey team that has not won the Stanley Cup championship since we stopped singing “God Save The Queen.”  Is that, I wonder, our “Curse of the Bambino”?  “The Curse of the Unsung-To Queen-o”?)

Anyway, at the end of “The Maple Leaf Forever”, there is a collective mentioning of the national symbols of the British Isles countries that predominantly populate – or at least oncepredominantly populated – Canada. 

On those infrequent occasions when “The Maple Leaf Forever” was called for, I, imaginably not alone, would loudly intone at the end of the song,

“The thistle, shamrock, rose and twine,
The Maple Leaf forever.”

For years, I wondered which country was proudly represented by “twine”, which is the equivalent of string. 

It must, I logically concluded, be Wales, because the other U.K. countries were all covered – the “thistle” stood Scotland, the “shamrock” was Ireland, the “rose” was England.  “String” must inevitably have been Wales.

I felt bad for the country.  Couldn’t they think of anything betterto be represented by?  I imagined they considered their options.  But it was, like,

“When you think of Wales, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind?”

“String.”

Really?  That’s the best they could come up with?

“Our country is proudly represented by that that indispensible item that keeps parcels from coming apart in the mail.”

At some point, however, I had my illuminating “Emily Litella Moment.”

“Oh. “The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine…”

Followed by the obligatory,

“Never mind.”
-----------------------------------------------------

A recent New York Times article on Canada, concerning its overall apathy towards reaching its sesquicentennial milestone, concluded with the line,

“I’m proud of my country for its lack of pride.”

I appreciated that line for two reasons.  One, I get it, and I agree with it.  And two, I wrote the same thing in this venue last year.  Or possibly the year before.  I know I wrote it sometime.  It looked extremely familiar.

Not that I’m proud of having a sentiment of mine printed in the New York Times.

But it is kind of neat, eh?

Happy “Big Birthday”, Canada.


You’re the best pretty good country in the world.

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 6/22 - MATILDA, OKLAHOMA, and More!   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature MATILDA, OKLAHOMA, CHICAGO, and more!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below!


Australia: Contributor Barry Lenny reviews MATILDA at the Adelaide Festival Theatre. He writes "Lucy Maunder plays the appropriately named, Miss Honey, all sweetness and light, without allowing her performance to descend into syrupy sentimentality. Maunder creates the teacher whom we all wish we had had in out first years at school, warm, gentle, supportive, and caring, the complete opposite of the headmistress. James Millar is hilarious as Miss Trunchbull, the villain of the piece. He struts, growls, shouts, and mentally and physically abuses the children. His Miss Trunchbull is an arrogant tyrant, charging through the students like a combine harvester in a wheat field, with audience laughter following him every step of the way."


Los Angeles: Contributing Editor Don Grigware reviews 3-D Theatricals' OKLAHOMA! He writes "The ensemble headed by Aks and Zachary Ford as Curly are magnificent triple threat performers. Aks has an operatic voice that dazzles and Ford has grown over the years into an exceedingly fine singer and actor. Tom Berklund as Will Parker makes his acrobatic dance moves look second nature and gives a superb performance. In line with the American Dream, both Will and Curly as played by Berklund and Ford show strength and determination in getting ahead and settling down with the women of their choice. Aks as Laurey is a much more complex character than previous Laureys we have seen. Dawson keeps the emphasis throughout on her tomboyish quality and her great outer strength in helping Aunt Eller ( the terrific Tracy Rowe Mutz) run the farm ... and on her fear of commitment to a relationship. When she pushes Curly aside, rejecting his advances, she is deeply struggling to understand her feelings and also her other unusual emotional connection to Jud Fry. Aks is as wonderful with Laurey's inner consternations as Kelly Dorney is with Ado Annie's openly aggressive reactions to the male element. Dorney's is a delicious performance full of feistiness and fun. Bonds is a sensation as Fry, exuding at times a brutal coldness, yet underneath we sense that there's a lot going on, some of which entails a sort of kind intent, apart from the expected cruelty. Boudreau as Hakim is hysterically delightful as the devious merchant, and E. E. Bell as Andrew Carnes, Ado Annie's pa, is simply great in a smaller role, as is Matt Merchant who stands out from among the 40+ ensemble as the stubborn, outspoken Cord Elam."


New Zealand: Contributing Editor Monica Moore reviews The Pumphouse Theatre's BRING IT ON. She writes "All cast members performed with a credibility beyond their years. Samantha Campbell was the anchor of the show and kept it moving along with her very talented performances. Comedic side kick Xanthe Pavlovich provided plenty of laughs as did Jaymee Brearly along and Kristin Paulse provided a fresh and earthy stage presence winning the audience over with her originality. The choreography (Gemma Boswell) was great and the cheerleading moves were creatively worked in. The basketball number was a personal favourite and kept me on the edge of my seat.


Phoenix: Contributor Herbet Paine reviews THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME. He writes "The supporting performances in this production are crisp and engaging. Gene Gillette cuts a sympathetic figure as Christopher's overbearing and protective father, desperately seeking to connect with his son while keeping a secret that may alienate him. Felicity Jones Latta is gripping as the mother whose frustration and guilt tear at her heart. Maria Elena Ramirez is perfect and relatable as Christopher's teacher who understands him better than anyone, provides moral support, and, as a play within a play, narrates the book he's written about his journey."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company. She writes "While the story may lag in places, MOBY DICK is consistently well-acted. As Ishmael, Jamie Abelson (who performs at all evening shows) embodies the earnest outsider in every way. Abelson's performance is endearing and slightly perturbed, which mirrors the dark overall tone of the tale. Anthony Fleming III is exceptional and often quite funny as Queequeg, Ishmael's fellow outsider on the Pequod. Fleming is not only a superb actor, but also one of the most accomplished acrobats on board the ship. Kareem Bandealy is consistently wonderful as the pragmatic shipman Starbuck. And as the infamous Captain Ahab, Nathan Hosner paints a disturbing portrait as an off-kilter man consumed by an unceasing thirst for revenge."


Central New York: Contributor Natasha Ashley reviews CHICAGO at the Central New York Playhouse. She writes "Shannon Tompkins' (also cast as Velma Kelly in select performances) choreography, based on Bob Fosse's original choreography, is some of the best that I have seen at this theatre. The Fosse-style dance expertise of ensemble member and Assistant Choreographer Stephfond Brunson also brought a wow factor to the proceedings. His solo dance in "Tap Dance" is a standout moment in the show. The choreography for this number is intricate, seductive, and intense."


Niagara on the Lake: Contributor Michael Rabice reviews THE MADNESS OF GEORGE THE III at the Shaw Festival. He writes "Director Kevin Bennett moves the evening along swiftly, but at the times the complexity of the dialogue as well as the various accents and dialects made the long first act a challenge. Mr. Bennett novelly chose to have the actors interact with the audience before each of the two acts. Subtle lighting changes make you unaware that the play begins with full house lights up, but then slowly dim as the action melds from off stage to onstage. Set designer Ken MacDonald has created an ingenious unit set that cleverly mirrors the actual interior of the Royal George Theatre. Box seats have been built on either side of the playing area, where actual theatre goers are seated. This brings an immediacy to the play, allowing these audience members to be embedded in the action, giving them a few bits of business to complete the staging."


New York / Dance: Contributor Christina Pandolfi reviews SWAN LAKE at American Ballet Theatre. She writes "And yet, all of that changed in the best way at the start of Act III in the great hall. The drama unfolded as von Rothbart appeared on the scene, introducing partygoers to his daughter, Odile. This time, Seo - dancing the iconic dual role of Odette/Odile - was edgy, sharp, and biting, as she bourréed with cutting intent and determination. Gomes matched her intensity, but offered a more subtle approach, lending her the steadfast guidance and support she deserved. The only time Seo showed her humanity was during the BLACK SWAN variation, where a repeated series of pirouettes tripped up her stability."


Cleveland: Contributor Roy Berko reviews AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at State Theatre. He writes "The elegant, artsy projections by 59 Productions create a cityscape of Paris, that makes the smell of baguettes baking, the trickling sound of the meandering Seine River, and the illuminating gaslights of the city live. The effect is aided by the lighting of Natasha Katz and the scenery and costumes by Bob Crowley. The orchestrations are both lush and, at times, jazzy. The musical sounds are full, enhancing the singing and dancing. The triple threat cast is generally strong. The petite, lovely, Sara Esty, a Leslie Caron look-alike, who was the understudy for the Broadway run, captivates as Lise. Her dancing, singing and acting are top-notch. (BTW, her sister, Leigh-Ann plays the roll on Sunday evenings during the Cleveland run)."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews THE KING AND I at Broadway in Chicago. She writes "Sher has assembled a talented and powerful ensemble for this tour. In Laura Michelle Kelly's self-assured Anna, Sher has found a tremendous leading lady for the tour. Not only is Kelly a perfectly expert vocalist, but she gives freely to her performance. Her Anna strikes the balance between firm and tender. Kelly's performance of the showstopper "Shall I Tell You What I Think of You" is particularly interesting; it's softer and less outright angry than other takes I've seen, but in a way that grants the number even more power for we see how deeply Anna feels in that moment. Kelly is well-matched by José Llana as the King of Siam. Llana's King is less severe than others I've seen, and one of the strongest singers I've seen in this role. That's an added benefit, especially because it makes Anna and the KIng's iconic duet "Shall We Dance?" all the more enjoyable."

          Eid Al Adha ; essence and beauty of celebrations :   








Eid Al Adha 

2016;

essence and beauty of celebrations :




The celebration marks the willingness of Prophet Abraham and Prophet Ismail (peace and blessings of Allah the Almighty be upon them ) in accepting most whole heartedly the command of Allah the One and Only God Almighty, Who in order to test his obedience asked Ibrahim to sacrifice his dearest, his first son, Ismail. Such was the unconditional love, devotion and sincerity of Ibrahim towards God that upon hearing the command, he prepared to submit to God's will. When he was all set for the sacrifice, God revealed to him that his "sacrifice" had already been fulfilled.






Ibrahim was surprised to see that Ismail was unharmed and instead, he found a slaughtered sheep or ram in front of him. Ibrahim had passed the test by demonstrating his willingness to carry out God's command. Through this benevolent Allah teaches mankind the essence of sacrifice and expects from all mankind Muslims similar devotions in our lives.











Obedient and immensely devoted; we all as Muslims, the very word meaning of which is “ one who submits to Allah”. In turn we reflect how we sacrifice our dearest possessions for the love of Allah; toward expressing our sincere and adorable faith in up-keeping and spreading the love and affection within our family, neighborhoods’, societies, nations, and towards all mankind. This physical, mental and spiritual essence amongst individuals and overall towards all mankind is unmatched and maintained for all times; not just during Eid Celebrations; but throughout the year to year, day to day; that these Eid Symbolized; being the true and forever blessed spirit of Islam.



Correspondingly we all obedient enough Muslims are expected to remind ourselves from the evils of all forms and things that are completely forbidden by Islam. These could include acting conceited, showing off your wealth by overindulgence in food and clothes, backbiting.... and all those that could harm not just ourselves but that with could corrode societies or mankind by refraining and in turn protecting each other; keeping the spirit of pure and holy mankind; 




the essence of which the bless religion has been bestowed to us all through all the great inspirations and sacrifices of our holy Prophets; from Adam to the Last Holy Prophet: Mohammed (peace and blessings of Allah the Almighty be upon them all).







The essence of these blessed days of Eid being: Eid ul Fitr is the way of showing gratitude to Allah, and Eid Al Adha is a time to show how much we sacrifice for Allah. Sacrifice means surrendering your possession to Allah.





The ever unmatchable level for all times to come; of the great submission of Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail were accepted by Allah the Almighty the One and Only God and it pleased Him to such a supreme degree that Allah made it a tradition to be practiced till the end of times. To commemorate the sacrifice, Muslims as a blessed tradition and symbolic reflection of gratitude, joys and happiness; all across the world sacrifice most devotionally an animal so recommended as permissible and halal, such as a sheep or a goat and the day centers around Eid prayers, blessed sacrifices of animals, giving charity and meeting up family and friends. Muslims must encouraged to include the less fortunate in the celebration. 


 Also, out of our graciousness and gratitude towards all our believing - ancestors;  as our tradition that we all till date follow;  immediately after the Eid-Prayers; it is recommended to  visit the graveyards where our forefathers and other Muslims who could not be with us for the celebrations; and pray for them too; ask blessings of Allah; that they too be purified of their sins and that they too be blessed with Jannat-Al-Firdous.





The meat from the sacrifice of Eid Al Adha is mostly given away to others. One-third is eaten by immediate family and relatives, one-third is given away to friends, and one-third is donated to the poor, downtrodden or less fortunate within societies.









"Eid is a day of happiness and rejoice. We all must love and share as much happiness as possible within all mankind. And the best ways to distribute happiness are by the blessed gathering with our holy and devoted families, wholly sincere meeting and intimately greeting people, truly and lovingly hugging or embracing them with whole heartiness, visiting relatives and friends joyously, exchanging or distributing gifts to spread peace, love and harmony within the social fabric of mankind, giving charity for the love and blessing of Allah the Almighty, feeding the poor, the downtrodden and above all, remembering Allah by doing Dhikr (rememberance of Allah)," 





Finally and most essentially keeping up and maintaining this blessed learning and blessed teachings;  gifted to us all as a tradition in our day to day lives, throughout our lives, to prove and ultimately be blessed by Jannat-Al-Firdous. InShaAllah!!!












































♥**♥ In the name of Allah; the Most Beneficent; the Most Merciful: ♥**♥


Then hasten onward from the place whence the multitude hasteneth  onward,  and ask forgiveness of Allah.  Lo!  Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 --The Glorious Quran; 2;  baqarah,199.







Eid-ul-Adha- Mubarak to all.

Ford Illuminati, Prez of the famed Bare Bones MC, is in the crosshairs of Noodlum, a whacked thug recently joined with the Cutlasses. When Ford’s company steals some highway workers of theirs, Noodlum lashes out with subterfuge, placing fake news stories about the club and stealing their identities to charge Cialis and penis weights.

But the clincher is when Noodlum targets Ford's old lady, Madison. His twisted obsession with Madison puts Ford on the alert, and Santiago Slayer on his trail. But things haven't been going well between Ford and Maddy lately. His two jobs—Prez of the MC and his construction company—have got him working more than double time. Neglected and feeling unloved, Maddy has a meltdown when a patient of hers dies. She needs to do something different--something fulfilling.

When she works at a clinic on the Indian Rez, a heartthrob doctor catches her eye. But he's not the real menace. Noodlum has come unhinged, targeting the light of his life—Madison Illuminati. Ford is forced to play along with the whacko's games, step by step. It will take the combined forces of his club and his company to emerge triumphant...to save his one true love and reclaim their marriage.













I continued, "It's not even just the recent fake news story. Cecil came to tell me that someone got ahold of our corporate credit cards and is charging shit all over town."


Everyone nodded and murmured. Sax was the first to speak up. "Maybe that's why the bank texted me. They were curious why someone had charged thirty copies of World of Warcraft from Rwanda."



"I got the same thing," said Knoxie. "Someone was trying to rush order some penis weights from Sierra Leone."



I pointed at Knoxie. "See? That's the exact thing that not only tries to make us look like assmunchers, but rips us off into the fucking bargain. I had a charge for twelve hundred bucks for ten model Ford Torinos. The charge went through because of my name."



Faux Pas, Duji, Speed and Gollywow nodded sagely. But Roman asked, "Your name? Because it was a toy model Ford?"



"A Torino," explained Duji. "Ford was nicknamed Torino by, ah..."



"His father," said Faux Pas, almost in a whisper.



The silence this time was uncomfortable, with everyone looking everywhere except at each other. Slushy tapped a pen on his desk and sucked on the inside of his mouth. Wolf broke the silence by going,



"What's a penis weight exactly? Some kind of bondage thing?"



Everyone laughed with relief. Lytton, the resident bondage king, said, "Not at fucking all, man. Not that I know the details, but I believe it's some kind of—"



"Penis enlargement device." Knoxie was bold to say that, because it cast him into a questionable light. "I know, because I had to deal with the bank for an hour straightening it all out. It's definitely someone trying to make us look like dingbats."



"And steal our money at the same time," I added. "Wolf, you're in charge of shredding all the accounting and other paper at the Citadel. Don't you have an industrial strength shredder in your parts shed?"



Wolf looked like he was watching a tennis match. A shady look if ever there was one. "Well, sure," he said uncertainly. "I bag up most of it and this recycling company hauls it away after it's shredded so no one can sit there putting the pieces together again."



"But?"



"But, ah, see, we've started up this organic garden outside the Unexploded Ordnance shed."



I wasn't sure I heard correctly. "What?"



"The hippies always out there meditating by the vortex gave me the idea."



"And me," said Slushy. "I'm all about the organic."



"Especially eggplant." Duji kissed his fingers. "I make the finest moussaka around."



"I thought you were Italian," said Faux Pas.



I couldn't fucking believe it. One, that they had an organic garden outside the Citadel. Two, that I hadn't noticed it. I'd been so fucking busy lately, I rarely looked at, much less answered, my texts. My bank had probably texted about the strange charges, too. What else had they charged on my corporate card? A shipment of butterfly vibrators? "So what does this have to do with the shredded documents?"



"Well," said Wolf, "the hippies gave me the idea to start a compost pile. It's really awesome, actually! But you need a certain amount of greens, water, dirt, and paper. You need to get the balance just right. Lytton helped me with the science of it all, and—"



"You put our shredded documents into your fucking compost pile?"



"They get wet! And dirty! And bugs come to eat them, and—"



There was some rustling outside the closed office door. Wolf eagerly looked at the door, glad for the interruption. But I shot him a look that said "I'm not done with you yet." I'd make him clean the bathrooms for another year, always the Prospect's job. Wolf had done it for a year. Now he'd do it for another. I couldn't believe these fucking guys. Even my old-timer brothers from the shorts pants days were acting like a bunch of hipster goofballs. Where did we live, Marin County? Sedona? They were more concerned with their intestinal flora than with the fact someone was obviously trying to push up on us.



At last, it was fucking Tobiah Weingarten in all his nerdy glory. He slammed shut the office door behind him in a rush, squeaking over in his tennies. He pivoted on one heel in the center of our chairs as though about to do a standup routine. In fact, he did grin under that eagle's nose of his and point dazzlingly at Wolf. "Sorry I'm late. I ran into Tracy in town and we had a nice chat."



The ire in Wolf's face seemed to imbue the entire room. He'd been sitting backward in his chair, and now he half-rose, gripping the seat back, and bashed the chair angrily. "Where the fuck—"



See, they'd been having a rivalry over this chick for quite some time. Tracy wasn't totally eye-banging, but those two nerds had it bad for her. First, she'd lived with Tobiah. Then she'd lived with Wolf. I guessed she was currently with Wolf—not sure, really. I knew I should take more interest in the ins and outs of my brothers' true lives, but fuck it. I was a busy man.



Tobiah held out a calming hand. "Sorry to shit on your campfire, Nerdulent." Everyone burst out into a hearty round of laughter, seeing as how Tobiah was way nerdier than Wolf. Wolf at least dressed the part of a brother at heart. Tobiah wore white belts, skinny velveteen jeans, and turtlenecks. "We just had coffee. Nice girl, though! Pretty green eyes—"



Before Wolf could rise like the Incredible Hulk, I put the kibosh on this whole affair. "Enough! Tobiah! Explain your findings. Who's behind the fake news stories?"



"Well!" Tobiah was always glad for a chance to be the center of attention, and now he literally was. His X-Files belt buckle flashed in my face when he turned. "Turns out it's some guy named Noodlum. I know, I know, not much to go on, is it? But I delved deeper into the mystery. Turns out the postings were coming from near the Discovery Channel Telescope—"



Lytton and Wolf gasped.



"—near Happy Jack."



"My house!" cried Lytton.



"That's what I thought, too. I thought oh great, someone's making it look like we're stabbing each other in the back to create dissention among our ranks. But no. Upon further investigation, the culprit was high up in the mountains, more toward Long Lake."



Now everyone was confused. They all had that resting bitch face as they drew back and looked at each other suspiciously.  



Could it be? The Cutlasses hadn't caused trouble in quite a while. Seemed they'd burned out and faded into the rearview since my brother had taken out a few of them. Sure, we'd stolen their workers. But what jobs did they have going on, anyway? They hadn't tried to jack a truck in months.



"Cutlasses," a few men murmured.



I said, "But who's this Noodlum asswipe? I know Doug Zelov, the Prez, as we all do. Is he their IT guy?"



Toby shrugged. "That's where the trail went cold. But you can bet dollars to donuts it's the Cutlasses behind it."



"Muldoon," mumbled Wolf, looking at his phone.



"What?" I said.



He looked at me. "Muldoon. That's Noodlum spelled backward."



"Muldoon!" cried Fox. "I knew a sociopath named Muldoon in my travels." Fox was a former hit man for the Jones cartel. If there were sociopaths to be known, Fox was our man. "Damn, that guy was a few clowns short of a circus. He once left twenty legs as a warning for Ortelio Jones. Just the legs, all arranged in a neat row like can-can dancers. And yeah, they were all womens' legs, all Mexicans, probably trafficked. There were rumors he was into toon porn because once, when we almost hit him, he had to leave so fast he left a full-on bunny suit behind."



"That would be furries, not toon porn," said Speed, ever knowledgeable. "They dress up in furry costumes and bump uglies in the night."



"No, it was toon porn," Fox said with authority. "We found a video showing that Family Guy's wife getting pile-driven, the usual animé, and Judy Jetson giving George a skull job."



Duji shook his head with wonder. "Kids these days."



"He wasn't stupid," said Fox, "which made him more dangerous. He just had splinters in the windmills of his mind, if you know what I mean."



I did. "You think he's working for Zelov now? Why else would he be up there? That's where their feeble shack of a clubhouse was, last I heard."



"Hot Stuff. Tread lightly with this Noodlum," said Slushy. "A pile of Mexican legs is a good sign that you don't want to get all up in his shit."



"They're up in ours," I said darkly to our lawyer.



Wolf exploded with a lip fart so resounding it made a few guys jump in their chairs. "Holy motherfuck! Ford! This guy has crossed the fucking line, man!" He stretched his arm out to hand me his phone. I whipped it from him and read:



Woman Wearing Too Much Makeup Mistaken as Clown, Attacked by Angry Mob.



Highlighted with a photo of my wife, Madison.



It was a photo taken from her hospital's website, but she wasn't wearing anything that would identify her as a nurse. She was just smiling from the shoulders on up, her little chipmunk features all shits and giggles, and she definitely didn't have too much makeup. The article went on, and I read aloud.



"Madison Illuminati, the wife of Bare Bones MC Prez, Ford Illuminati, was taken into custody last night in Cottonwood when her makeup scared bystanders into thinking she was a menacing clown come to lure their children into the woods."



That's how far I got before I slammed Wolf's phone into the wall, and my men erupted onto their feet.  



Some punched walls, too. "Men, men!" shouted Slushy. "Calm the fuck down!"



Duji waved a finger in my face. "That's the limit, Ford! That's the fucking limit! These motherfuckers have pushed us over the edge!"



Sax shouted, "This is their first fucking inroad, and you know it won't be their last!"



Faux Pas intoned between clenched teeth, "We need to have a sit-down with these dirtbags."



Everyone was making too much noise for me to talk. I just closed my eyes and thought Yes. We're having a face-to-face.  



We were all going to the wall for each other. Someone was going to pay for this libel. God would do the accounting when it was over.

          Movie review: Steve Carell pulls double duty in ‘Despicable Me 3’    
It’s downright despicable what Illumination Entertainment has done to the once-promising “Despicable Me” franchise. The third entry arrives in no better shape than either the second movie or its spinoff, “Minions.” Despite a double performance by the always-entertaining Steve Carell, “Despicable Me 3” is, well, uninspired — except for the 80s music that’ll keep Mom and Dad awake. Madonna’s “Get into the Groove” [...]

          Commenti su Il caso del piccolO Charlie, l’Europa va oltre l’eutanasia e decide sul dovere di morire di luigi bandiera   
Passo di sicuro per matto (mejo mati ke fesi) per dire quanto segue: - QUESTO E' IL NUOVO CHE AVANZA: PREPARIAMOCI AL PEGGIO. - Sara' el PERIODO DEL TERRORE. - Ora si nota che e' l'intellighenzia che sa tutto e decide tutto. Decidesse per se' stessa andrebbe anche bene ma, kax, decide anche per tutti gli altri. La loro presuntuosa giustificazione e' che loro sono gli ILLUMINATI per cui acquisiscono il DIRITTO di DECIDERE PER TUTTI GLI ALTRI. - Questi non sono matti, ma furbi calcolatori e stanno per modificare il nostro modo di vita (come dice la boldrina?) che forse durava da troppo tempo. - Tutto e' collegato... gender, gay e galline, famiglie sempre piu' distrutte e ecc.. Ah gisa, mancano i figli. Allora compriamoli in Africa. - Non vale piu' il padre e la madre per cui quei due poveretti (un tempo remoto genitori) oggi non contano un kax..! - Sono loro, gli illuminati, che fanno e disfano; decidono se deve esserci il bello o il cattivo tempo. - I giovani crescono come cresce una piantina di razza buona in mezzo alla GRAMIGNA, alla ZIZZANIA. Poi ci si lamenta se scappano. Se non producono. O si adeguano o MUOIONO o SCAPPANO..! - Quando vi dico chi sono quelli della poco nota BANDA DEI QUATTRO sicuramente sorridete e magari mi compatite... Fate bene, perche' non sono ne un luminare e ne un illuminato. Faccio parte dei BASSI purtroppo. - Se osserviamo, ad oggi con il tempo o le bocce ferme, notiamo che tutto il mondo sta andando in CONFUSIONE e grazie alla banda dei quattro che e' formata da queste categorie, o meglio BANDE..? Esse sono: BRIGANTI RAPINATORI SASSINI MANTENUTI - Saranno mica gli ANALFABETI, LE CLASSI DEI BASSI e ecc. a far tutta sta CONFUSIONE..? - Ve lo siete mai chiesto mo chi e da dove arriva tutto sto RIBALTAMENTO SOCIALE..? - L'Africa che vuole invadere l'Europa e non usa carri armati come i SERENISSIMI, ma la BOCCA. Gia', si, la bocca che vuole cibo. E ma adesso stanno cambiando strategia pure loro di cibo ce ne e' in abbondanza probabilmente per cui puntano al SOLDO: Infatti, VOGLIONO SOLDI NON PIU' CIBO. - Da chi sono istruiti mo sti INVASORI..? - Guardate che gli invasori aumentano di giorno in giorno e di ANNO in ANNO. Giornalmente il numero e' basso ma a tempo annuale diventa IMPRESSIONANTE..! - E' LEGITTIMA DIFESA RESPINGERLI CON QUALSIASI MEZZO..! - Qua siamo la marmellata e le mosche ci piomberanno addosso come non abbiamo mai visto in passato: gli europei non fecero uguale per esempio verso le Americhe. Adesso bisogna AGIRE e far tacere chi starnazza accoglienza..! - PER LEGITTIMA DIFESA FERMIAMO GLI INVASORI..!!!!!!!!! --- AUGURI ---
          Get Naked: Is Rustic Walls A Hit Or A Miss?   

Would you dare to be bold with your interior design with unpainted and untreated walls? While this may seem like unfinished business, we love the look and feel this can bring to the humble abode.

 

brick-unfinished-wall-tumblr

 

Unfinished wood is not just for tree houses anymore. Be daring and enchant your guests - utilise this unrefined material to introduce a rustic charm to your living space and go back to your roots with this organic décor that is a sweeping trend for interiors.

 

rustic-treehouse1-httpwww.diyncrafts.com

 

The abundance of wood results in an incredibly calm, open space - whether it being a one bedroom apartment or a 4 storey home. This rigid look will certainly present a aura of sophistication to your home.

 

tumblr-wooden-wall

 

 

The raw, unfinished look of concrete is inimitable and there is something so welcoming about this style of décor.

A lavish farm house or a home in the city, you can be sure to find inspiration for rustic furnishings to accentuate features in a room with sheer elegance and uniqueness.

 

 

concrete-grey-wall-pinterest

 

blog-rustic-walls1

 

Large stone walls offer the perfect backdrop for letting details such as chairs or accessories to stand out that bit more - invite life into your home!

 

rustic-bathroom-heading-tumblr

 

Interior designs with concrete walls are one of the most popular designs in recent years, despite its industrial and cold look.

There is something very appealing about a messy, unfinished surface. Rough it out with having a crumbling plastered wall to create a room with character and warmth which will in turn enhance the characteristics of different pieces of furniture in a room.

 

concrete-backdrop-books-pinterest

 

 

brick-wall-blog-tumblr

 

 

A stunning daybed or sofa accompanied with a radiant illuminating ceiling lamp above, against an unfinished wall, is bound to be an eccentric trio in the home. Be adventurous and do not be afraid to add some style and character to any room!

 

 

brick-wall-artichoke-tumblr

 

unfinished-plaster-dezeen

 

 

Of course we are not advocating that every room in the house should have this gritty, unfinished look. However, if you are of the experimental kind, give it a go and shoot the works to create a unique atmosphere which showcases imagination and individuality.

 

 

Take a look at these strikingly stand out pieces which are guaranteed to add a pop of colour to enhance your living space.

          'LAUGH TIME' : Why did the chicken cross the road?   
Here is an adapted version of the chicken joke for your entertainment. Enjoy!

----------

RONALD FISHER: Why does it have to be a chicken? Why not a frog, turkey, or pig? We randomly try to a have chicken, frog, turkey and pig cross the road 10 times each. We then compare the mean number of times each animal crossed the road to determine if there's a difference in means.

SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for change! The chicken wanted change!

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

TONY BLAIR:
I agree with George.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2010, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2010. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

AUGUST MOBIUS: To get to the same side.

ISAAC NEWTON: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross the road.

WERNER HEISENBERG: We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was moving very fast.

JERRY SEINFELD: Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, "What the heck was this chicken doing walking all over the place anyway?"

AL GORE: I will fight for the chickens and I will not disappoint them. Did I mention that I invented roads?

KEN STARR: I intend to prove that the chicken crossed the road at the behest of the president of the United States of America in an effort to distract law enforcement officials and the American public from the criminal wrongdoing our highest elected official has been trying to cover up. As a result, the chicken is just another pawn in the president's ongoing and elaborate scheme to obstruct justice and undermine the rule of law. For that reason, my staff intends to offer the chicken unconditional immunity provided he cooperates fully with our investigation. Furthermore, the chicken will not be permitted to reach the other side of the road until our investigation and any Congressional follow-up investigations have been completed.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.

DR. SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes! The chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed, I've not been told!

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

GRANDPA: In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

KARL MARX: It was a historical inevitability.

SADDAM HUSSEIN: This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.

CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

FOX MULDER: You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross before you believe it?

MACHIAVELLI: The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.

FREUD: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

IMMANUEL KANT: The chicken was acting out of a sense of duty to cross the road, as chickens have traditionally crossed roads throughout history.

COLONEL SANDERS: I missed one?

RICHARD M. NIXON: The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road. I don't know any chickens. I have never known any chickens.

JANOS von NEUMANN: The chicken is distributed probabilistically on all sides of the road until you observe it on your side.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

DONALD RUMSFELD: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

ANDRE AMPERE: To keep up with current events.

ROBERT BOYLE: She had been under too much pressure at home.

JAMES WATT: It thought it would be a good way to let off steam.

THOMAS EDISON: She thought it would be an illuminating experience.

JEAN FOUCALT: It didn't. The rotation of the earth made it appear to cross.

KARL GAUSS: Because of the magnetic personality of the rooster on the other side.

GUSATV HERTZ: Lately, its been crossing with greater frequency.

GEORG OHM: There was more resistance on this side of the road.

ERWIN SCHRODINGER: Since the wording of the question implies the absence of an observer (else the fowl's motivation might easily be deduced), it is evident that the chicken simultaneously did and did not cross the road. In the face of this, any speculation as to the bird's purpose must be viewed as mere sophistry - and as such is beyond the bounds of this discussion.

JULIUS CAESAR:
It came, it saw, it crossed.

DARWIN:
Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically positioned to cross roads.

NIGER DELTA MILITANTS:
The chicken only crossed to get her share of national cake

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION:
The chicken crossing will further spread Avian Flu to another unprepared country.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: "… and as we watch the lone chicken undertake this hazardous journey, we can only wonder at the awesome nature of this dangerous, yet necessary, migration. …"

THE ROCK (WWF):
If you saw me coming, you'd be crossing the road too!

          HENRY IV, PART TWO Opens in Thomas Theatre 7/8   
OSF's journey through Shakespeare's history tetralogy marches on with the second part of Henry IV joining the repertory, with previews beginning July 4. Once again, the Festival's intimate Thomas Theatre will play host to the political intrigue of early 15th-century England.

The story of Henry IV, Part Two begins shortly after the end of the first part, with England in chaos, fear and confusion. Foreign invaders threaten, rebellious nobles plot against the king, and Prince Hal-after proving himself on the battlefield at the end of Part One-returns to the "headstrong riot" of his tavern days. Two fates hang in the balance: that of a nation pulling apart, and that of a young man who must transform his own life before he can heal his battered land.

Director Carl Cofield, helming his first production at OSF, speaks in musical metaphors of the tonal contrasts between the two parts of Henry IV, saying "Part Two is quieter and darker. The battles here are internal, like a classic blues song, open and raw. Rather than the big war scenes of Part One, we see the battles over the crown, over relationships and over conscience. To capture that atmosphere in the intimacy of the Thomas Theatre is a gift. It allows the subtler moments to be highlighted."

Cofield hopes that audiences will feel the modern resonances from this 400-year-old history play. "After watching it, I hope we learn something about our plight. Much like Hal, we are at a crossroads. We too must ask ourselves how we as a nation want to govern and how we live in community with each other."

The cast features Jeffrey King as King Henry IV, Fang and Bullcalf; Daniel José Molina as Prince Hal; G. Valmont Thomas as Sir John Falstaff; Kimberly Scott as Archbishop, Pistol and Mouldy; Tyrone Wilson as Northumberland, Snare and Warwick; Michael Gabriel Goodfriend as Poins, Hastings, Collevile and Travers; Robert Vincent Frank as Westmorland and Bardolph; Jeremy Gallardo as Prince John, Francis, Morton and Wart; Lauren Modica as Peto, Silence and Mowbray; Alejandra Escalante as Rumor, Doll Tearsheet, Davy and Clarence; Richard Elmore as Justice Shallow, Lord Bardolph and Drawer; Nemuna Ceesay as Lady Percy, Gower, Gloucester and Shadow; Robin Goodrin Nordli as Lady Northumberland, Lord Chief Justice, Feeble and Harcourt; Michele Mais as Mistress Quickly and Porter; and Yi Shostrom as the Page.

The scenic designer is Adam Rigg, costumes are by Dede M. Ayite, and lighting design is by Alan C. Edwards. The composer and sound designer is Elisheba Ittoop, and dramaturgs are Lydia G. Garcia and Amrita Ramanan. Voice and text director is Rebecca Clark Carey; fight director is U. Jonathan Toppo and Jill Rendall is stage manager.

Henry IV, Part Two is supported by Sponsor the Hitz Foundation and Partners Flying Pigs Aviation, Ann P. Wyckoff and The Kinsman Foundation. U.S. Bank is the Season Sponsor of the 2017 season.

Founded by Angus Bowmer in 1935, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) has grown from a three-day festival of two plays to a nationally renowned theatre arts organization that presents an eight-month season of up to 11 plays that include works by Shakespeare as well as a mix of classics, musicals, and world-premiere plays and musicals. OSF's play commissioning programs, which include American Revolutions: the United States History Cycle, have generated works that have been produced on Broadway, throughout the American regional theatre, and in high schools and community theatres across the country. The Festival draws attendance of more than 400,000 to approximately 800 performances every year and employs approximately 575 theatre professionals.

OSF invites and welcomes everyone, and believes the inclusion of diverse people, ideas, cultures and traditions enriches both our insights into the work we present on stage and our relationships with each other. OSF is committed to equity and diversity in all areas of our work and in our audiences.

OSF's mission statement: "Inspired by Shakespeare's work and the cultural richness of the United States, we reveal our collective humanity through illuminating interpretations of new and classic plays, deepened by the kaleidoscope of rotating repertory."

          Movie Review: "Despicable Me 3" Is A Slight But Enjoyable Romp   
DESPICABLE ME 3
Starring the voices of Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, Jenny Slate, Trey Parker and Julie Andrews
Screenplay by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio
Directed by Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin, Eric Guillon

Reviewed by Patrick Gibbs



 Out of Four



The huge and unexpected success of 2010's Despicable Me changed the dynamic of animation in Hollywood. Someone besides Disney or even DreamWorks had now crashed the party and created a mega hit complete with all of the necessary elements for major marketability, and it had crossover appeal to adults. As with any animated franchise, the more it became sequelized and over milked, the less adult friendly it became (the Minions movie was a bit of a chore to sit through), but it has remained a blockbuster game changer and it put Illumination on the map, taking DreamWorks' place as the number two animation studio at the box office.

Despicable Me 3 begins with Gru (Steve Carrell) and his new wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig), agents for the Anti-Villain League (AVL) facing off against a super villain named Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker of South Park fame.). Bratt is a former child star whose hit sitcom, Evil Bratt, was cancelled after he had a sudden growth spurt and went from cute to awkward, and he has refused to move on to the point where he is stuck in the '80's and has become a real life villain, modeling his career after his TV alter ego. When Gru and Lucy fail to stop Bratt from stealing the world's most valuable diamond, they are abruptly dismissed by Valerie Da Vinci (Jenny Slate), the new head of the AVL.

Gru and Lucy break the news to the children, Margo, Edith and Agnes, but insist that everything is fine and they will find new jobs soon. The kids take the news better than the Minions do, and they collectively decide to quit when Gru refuses to return to a life of villainy, going off to try it on their own. Meanwhile, Gru is met by a huge surprise when he finds out that he has a long lost twin brother named Dru (also voiced by Steve Carrell). The two quickly make a connection, and Dru drops another bombshell on Gru: he wants his brother to teach him how be a super villain.

This is definitely the kind of movie that you have to go into with reasonable expectations, and it's going to play better with kids than with adults. But it's fast moving and entertaining, with some amusing moments (the Minions are annoying as always, but they also have their share of oddly amusing moments, as always.). Carrell does very well playing opposite himself, and it's fun watching the relationship between Lucy and the girls grow. The Bratt character plays better in the film than he does in the trailers, though Parker's performance is capable but nothing special, and he's certainly not up there with Jason Segel and Benjamin Bratt as the previous villains in the series.

The wonderful sense of heart that the first movie had is nearly impossible to recapture, because Gru could only become a good guy after inheriting children once. That was such a crucial part of what the original truly great that the sequels just can't compete, and they are far more reliant on hit and miss slapstick. This is definitely a case where the original is a classic and the sequels are merely fun, but Despicable Me 3 is still fun, especially if you see it with your kids. I took my 10-year old niece, and the series has been a tradition with us. We had a great time watching it together, and ever kids in the audience was excited to be there (more than one carrying a stuffed unicorn) and there is very definitely a place for such films.  It's not PIXAR, or even top quality DreamWorks like How To Train Your Dragon 2, but it does what it does well enough.  It would be nice if it was closer in quality to the original, but even PIXAR has a hard time with that, and if you're looking at sequels that decline in quality, I'll take Despicable Me 3 over Pirates of The Caribbean: Dean Men Tell No Tales any day.

          Piigs   
@ Futuribilepassato | Luca Tittoni. Come ogni punto di vista che si rispetti quello del film sulle politiche di austerità indotte dall'UE verso alcuni suoi stati membri ci fornisce elementi di un puzzle davvero interessante. Un quadro contemporaneo che riguarda ormai una porzione via via più consistente del popolo europeo.
Piigs raccoglie le osservazioni di attenti studiosi come Noam Chomsky, Vladimiro Giacchè e Warren Mosler, e nei fatti l'acronimo sta per:
P.i.i.g.s., che si può leggere come una sottolineatura dello spregiativo inglese pigs ("porci"), è un "neologismo" coniato dal giornalismo economico nel 2009 (ammesso che si possa definire giornalismo l'insulto; l'alternativa è Gipsi, assonante con "zingaro"), o almeno così ci dicono i titoli di testa del film. Ma è anche acronimo dei cinque Paesi dell'UE considerati dalle politiche economiche scriteriate, Stati non competitivi, per non dire parassiti: Portogallo, Irlanda, Italia, Grecia e Spagna (qui)
Insomma, i cosiddetti "porci", secondo una certa stampa - e non solo - nord europea, sarebbero l'anello disfunzionale del progetto economico - monetario dell'UE. Attenzione, dell'UE, non dell'Europa, l'Europa è da sempre un'altra cosa e tale rimarrà. Distinguo importante nella melassa informativa tesa spesso a confondere.
Grecia, Irlanda, Italia, Portogallo e Spagna, rigorosamente in ordine alfabetico e non di "buffi", sia chiaro, elementi deboli perchè molto indebitati. Esposti a tal punto da non essere sostenibili, quindi insolventi o a rischio di insolvenza.
Ma è realmente così?
Il film, narrato da Claudio Santamaria e opportunamente descritto negli articoli che propongo poco più sotto: il primo preso da Scenari Economici, il secondo da Il Fatto Quotidiano (quest'ultimo tuttavia con qualche banale errore di troppo), pone seri dubbi che le cose siano davvero così.
Riesce infatti difficile considerare stati come l'Italia o lo Spagna come dei "parassiti". Stiamo parlando, nel nostro caso, di una delle prime economie manifatturiere dell'UE, tale da disturbare la stessa Germania e ignorando, volutamente, il contributo storico dato dagli italiani nel corso dei decenni alla creazione della stessa UE.
Ci riguarda e prendiamo proprio l'Italia, l'ombelico della cosiddetta periferia. Davvero l'Italietta sarebbe così indebitata o spendacciona da meritare una cura lacrime e sangue per mezzo dell'austerità di Francoforte e Bruxelles?
A tal riguardo sarebbe meglio non osservare l'andamento del nostro debito pubblico dal momento dell'adozione della moneta unica europea e, ancor più, dall'adozione delle misure di austerità. Grafici vietati ai deboli di cuore.
Peraltro l'Italia prima dell'adozione dell'Euro operò una massiccia opera di privatizzazioni volte, secondo gli "illuminati" amministratori del momento, proprio ad abbattere lo stock di debito in vista dell'ingresso nell'unione monetaria e aprire (teoricamente) il mercato. La storia, si sa, è andata diversamente e nei fatti ci siamo privati di buona parte del nostro comparto industriale (tra i primi al mondo) senza ridurre considerevolmente lo stesso debito. In fin dei conti illuminate, quelle si, dottrine macroeconomiche ci dicono che ridurre il debito pubblico con un forte contributo delle privatizzazioni equivale a premere il grilletto con sotto i propri piedi.
La crisi esogena che ha investito l'area Euro dal 2007 e che lascia boccheggiare ancor oggi le economie del Mediterraneo, spiaggiate in cerca di ossigeno e con riforme calate dall'alto che non originano nessuna soluzione nel medio - lungo termine (deflazione salariale e interventi massicci sulla produttività), non era tecnicamente uno shock originato dalla crisi dei debiti sovrani. Oggi si può dire con chiarezza.
Non i debiti di stato insomma e, quindi, non come ci è stato sempre o quasi detto.
A sgombrare il campo da qualsiasi arbitrio sul tema è Vítor Constâncio, non il referente economico di qualche partito nazionale, ma il vicepresidente della stessa Banca Centrale Europea: "La BCE scopre che il problema è la finanza privata e non quella pubblica", tratto da Vocidallestero, ma le parole di Constâncio trovano facile risontro un po' ovunque.
Di quella relazione ne propongo uno stralcio leggibile in toto a questo link.
La prima domanda è importante per identificare le possibili carenze nella progettazione dell’unione monetaria che hanno bisogno di essere corrette per evitare crisi future. La mia opinione è che il principale fattore scatenante è da ricercarsi nel settore finanziario, in particolare in quelle banche che hanno fatto da intermediarie nell’immenso flusso di capitali verso i paesi periferici, che ha creato squilibri divenuti insostenibili a seguito del “sudden stop” (arresto improvviso, ndt) causato dalla crisi internazionale e dalla brusca revisione delle valutazioni del rischio che questa ha causato.
La seconda domanda è utile per comprendere se la costruzione dell’unione monetaria sarebbe stata sufficiente ad assicurare una graduale correzione delle vulnerabilità e evitare una crisi, nel caso in cui lo shock internazionale non fosse avvenuto. Si potrebbe ipotizzare che, senza influenze esterne, l’eurozona avrebbe potuto superare gradualmente le sue debolezze con un processo di riequilibrio interno. Non potremo mai essere certi di questo. Fortunatamente, questa domanda è meno significativa della prima.
...
Cominciamo con la prima prospettiva sulle cause. La spiegazione più vecchia  della crisi, progressivamente corretta dagli accademici ma sempre popolare tra alcuni segmenti dell’opinione pubblica, dice più o meno questo: “Non c’era niente di intrinsecamente sbagliato nel progetto dell’Unione monetaria europea, e la crisi sarebbe scaturita essenzialmente dal fatto che diversi paesi periferici non avrebbero rispettato quel progetto – in particolare le regole fiscali e il Patto di stabilità e di crescita – il che avrebbe generato una crisi di debito pubblico.”  Questa è la spiegazione secondo la quale  “il problema è essenzialmente fiscale”, che può essere facilmente connessa ad altre due : l’indisciplina fiscale ha portato ad un surriscaldamento dell’economia, l’aumento di salari e prezzi ha implicato una perdita di competitività, e questo ha portato alla crisi da bilancia dei pagamenti.
Nonostante questa spiegazione abbia una sua coerenza interna, essa non è corretta, specialmente per quel che riguarda il fattore scatenante della crisi.
Anzitutto, non c’è una forte correlazione tra il rispetto del Patto di stabilità e crescita di un membro dell’eurozona prima della crisi e il relativo spread richiesto dai mercati finanziari oggi. Per esempio, Germania e Francia non hanno rispettato tale Patto nel 2003-2004; mentre Spagna e Irlanda lo hanno rispettato più o meno pienamente fino al 2007.
In secondo luogo, nei paesi il cui debito pubblico è oggi sotto attacco, durante i primi anni della moneta unica non c’è stato alcun aumento non c’è stato alcun incremento uniforme del livello complessivo del debito pubblico.
A tante domande una risposta.
Smontato quindi il maggiore credo popolare e dei media, messo fuori dall'austero angolo il colpevole dei (non) colpevoli, lo stock di debito pubblico, viene da chiedersi dove cercare quindi la vera causa.
Anche qui lo stesso Constâncio ci fornisce valide indicazioni e con un po' di intuito si può passare dall'acqua al fuocherello. Non ci resta che giocare.
L'Italia, intanto, con un debito pubblico attorno al 132% del PIL è lontana ad esempio da quel Giappone che sfonda di gran lunga il tetto del 200% - roba da olive greche! - e che ben si guarda da entrare in qualsiasi unione monetaria per giunta a cambi fissi: "Perché con un rapporto debito/Pil al 236% il Giappone spende e spande mentre l'Italia va giù a colpi di austerity?" Il Sole 24 Ore, qui.
Il Giappone ha il 236% del debito/Pil e un deficit/Pil al 10%. Numeri che farebbero impallidire Angela Merkel, i trattati di Maastricht, Lisbona e compagnia bella. E cosa fa il premier Shinzo Abe? Ha annunciato poche ore fa un ulteriore piano espasione della spesa pubblica con un primo intervento da 85 miliardi di euro. Insomma, del mantra europeo dell' austerity dalle parti di Tokyo non c'è neanche l'ombra. Ma come mai il Giappone - che resta la terza economia del pianeta e può esibire un tasso di disoccupazione del 4,5% contro l'11% europeo - può permettersi di far galoppare la spesa pubblica pur convinvendo da tempo con parametri di indebitamento molto simili a quelli della Grecia? Non solo: lo stesso plurindebitato Giappone può permettersi di finanziare il debito pubblico americano (facendo carry trade, ovvero pagando interessi inferiori all'1% su titoli a 10 anni ai detentori dei titoli nipponici e ricevendo quasi il 2% dal Tesoro Usa) e quello europeo (il Giappone si è detto pronto ad acquistare titoli emessi dal Fondo salva-StatiEsm). Come mai?
Possibile? Pizza, corruzione e mandolino più virtuosi degli introspettivi samurai? Chissà cosa direbbe, appunto, la ferrea Angela da Berlino.
Tecnicamente però è così, ma questo quanto ci costa in termini reali? Molto, un prezzo enorme e difficile da stimare.
Purtroppo il Sol Levante dispone di due cose che noi abbiamo perso o meglio, ceduto in nome di un disegno unitario che unitario però non pare essere: la leva monetaria e, praticamente, anche la leva fiscale.
Il definitivo harakiri giunge con la regola di Maastricht secondo la quale il tetto virtuoso di debito pubblico per ogni paese aderente all'Euro non deve superare la soglia del 60%. Concetto, questo, che non risponde, nei fatti, a nessuna dottrina macroeconomica.
I meticolosi samurai, sebbene con i loro problemi, questo l'hanno capito bene e anche dall'altra parte del Pacifico non scherzano affatto, con Trump poi ne vedremo probabilmente delle belle.
Ai tempi dell'adozione del Marco tedesco come moneta unica, pardon, dell'Euro, non è solo il debito pubblico ad essere oggetto di particolari attenzioni. Fa infatti da contraltare a questa tematica anche l'annosa questione del rapporto deficit/PIL sotto la soglia del 3% per ogni stato appartenente alla moneta unica.
Virtuosismi, verrebbe da dire, recessivi.
Prendiamo sempre il nostro Paese, l'Italia rispetta con molti sacrifici questa soglia del 3% dal 2012, al contrario ad esempio della Francia, ancora allegramente fuori da tale parametro.
Per rimanere dentro questo vincolo il nostro Paese sta, non a caso, smantellando il suo tessuto manifatturiero e artigianale, sta tagliando servizi primari al cittadino, elevando la tassazione, tutto in nome di un'efficienza che non ha fondamenti economici reali.
Forse un giorno andrà riscritta la nostra storia recente, chissà. I Piigs non sono porci e forse non erano neppure così "buffaroli". Intanto abbiamo una certezza: in passato erano molto più ricchi.
Qui il trailer.
Buona visione, al cinema.

Da Scenari Economici: E se in un unico documentario alcuni tra gli intellettuali più prestigiosi del mondo sostenessero che le politiche di austerità dell’Unione Europea ci stanno portando sull’orlo del baratro economico invece che salvarci dalla crisi?
E se quello stesso documentario vi dimostrasse che le regole dei trattati europei sul deficit, il debito e l’inflazione sono frutto di banali errori di calcolo?
E se vi venisse svelato come queste politiche influiscono direttamente sulla vita di ognuno di noi aumentando disoccupazione, povertà e diseguaglianze?
Ci ripetono costantemente che lo stato sociale non è più sostenibile. Intanto il malcontento popolare monta, sempre più cavalcato da partiti estremisti con conseguenti e quotidiane derive xenofobe. L’Europa sembra assistere impotente a questo pericoloso scenario, il rischio di una disgregazione è sempre meno peregrino, la Brexit ne è un clamoroso esempio.
Preoccupati per questo quadro desolante e per un orizzonte tutt’altro che roseo, ci siamo chiesti cosa potesse fare il cinema. Il progetto è totalmente autofinanziato e riconoscendone il valore sociale hanno aderito gratuitamente alcuni dei più grandi intellettuali del mondo, tra cui:
Noam Chomsky (filosofo e linguista, definito dal New York Times “Probabilmente il più grande intellettuale vivente”), Yanis Varoufakis (ex ministro delle finanze greco), Stephanie Kelton (economista capo del budget del senato degli Stati Uniti e consulente economico di Bernie Sanders), Warren Mosler (insider finanziario, esperto di sistemi monetari), Paul De Grauwe (London School of Economics), Erri De Luca (scrittore). Con il loro aiuto e attraverso un’indagine durata cinque anni, il documentario sfata alcuni dei più incrollabili dogmi economici che influenzano le politiche dell’Unione Europea. Dogmi che non solo hanno impedito ai Paesi europei di risollevarsi dalla crisi peggiore degli ultimi cento anni, ma che addirittura… la aggravano. 
Prosegue qui.

Da Il Fatto Quotidiano: Attraverso una indagine lunga ben cinque anni, Piigs distrugge alcuni dei più incrollabili dogmi economici che influenzano le politiche dell’Unione europea e dunque anche la nostra vita. I comuni non possono spendere danaro per migliorare la vita dei propri cittadini? Le regioni sono costrette a chiudere gli ospedali? In Italia nel 2016 si è raggiunto il record storico di povertà assoluta (4 milioni e seicentomila persone)? Tutta colpa della regola del 3%, cioè di quel limite insuperabile imposto dall’Unione a tutti i paesi membri nel rapporto tra deficit e Pil. Ma chi sa come nacque questa regola europea diventata legge costituzionale in Italia?
Lo spiega nel documentario un divertito Guy Abeille, già funzionario economico del gabinetto del presidente francese Mitterand: “Un giorno il Presidente ci chiese un sistema semplice e veloce, non tecnico, per imporre un tetto alle spese statali. Ci riunimmo e in un’ora pensammo al rapporto deficit/pil che in quell’anno in Francia era del 2,6%, così demmo un tetto per noi non traumatico, del 3%. Lo proponemmo a Mitterand e lui lo accettò entusiasta. Nel 1991, Jean Claude Trichet, governatore supplente del Fondo Monetario Internazionale, lo ripropose come limite fisso europeo e la Comunità lo accettò. Nessuna teoria a suffragarlo. Nessun calcolo a giustificarlo”.
Il Re è nudo.
