Las 23 películas que mejor han contado lo que es de verdad un amor de verano   

Vacaciones En Roma

Jamás culparé al cine por mis altas expectativas en los diferentes ámbitos de la vida. Le quiero demasiado. Pero si hay algo que el cine nos ha enseñado y estropeado para siempre son los amores de verano, porque nunca, nunca serán como en las películas, o al menos siempre serán menos glamoursos y mucho máss pegajosos (sí, soy una hater del calor).

Por suerte, el cine nos ha enseñado mucho más que la existencia de amores de verano idílicos. Además de amores inesperados y románticos, también nos han enseñado amores musicales, turbios, inapropiados, con forma de thriller y que acabarán fatal, cómicos, adolescentes, incestuosos... Y como no todo es perfecto, os traigo una lista imperfecta de algunas de mis películas favoritas sobre amores de verano ideales para esta época del año.

Así que, si como yo odiáis demasiado el calor como para vivir vuestro propio romance estival y os van más los amores en la nieve y con jerséis de lana, os recomiento algunos títulos para que podáis vivirlos desde el sofá de vuestra casa... con el aire acondicionado a tope.

'Vacaciones en Roma' (1953)

Nunca he estado en Roma y me da miedo ir y que no me pase lo que Audrey Hepburn en 'Vacaciones en Roma' ('Roman Holiday', Wylliam Wyler). Claro que yo no soy una princesa europea agobiada por no poder llevar una vida normal y que se escapa de palacio para conocer Roma y encontrarse a sí misma. Con corte de pelo y borrachera incluída.

Aún así, esta delicia de película de final algo amargo de ese amor imposible entre la princesa Anna y el periodista Joe Bradley (un maravilloso Gregory Peck) que termina enamorándose de ella mientras trata de conseguir una exclusiva para su periódico, es perfecta, no sólo para una noche de verano, sino para cualquier época del año.

'Atrapa a un Ladrón' (1955)

Si Cary Grant decide no separarse de ti para atrapar al ladrón de cuyos robos le están inculpando...¿quién podría negarse? Y más si todo esto ocurre en la idílica Costa Azul. Pero no, una vez más, no soy Grace Kelly ni una rica heredera a la que puedan robar las joyas.

Por suerte, no necesitamos vivirlo, porque Hitchcok lo rodó y plasmó tan bien en 'Atrapa a un ladrón' ('To Catch A Thief', Alfred Hitchcok, 1955), con esa mezcla perfecta de thriller y romance que no necesitamos nada más. Gracias Hitch por el glamour de los romances veraniegos entre ladrones y descapotables azules.

'La tentación vive arriba' (1955)

En mi ciudad hay metro, pero no es como el de Nueva York, cuyas rejillas de ventilación provocan un mini-huracán en la superfecie, y aunque así lo fuera, probablemente sería un aire repugnante, calentorro y fétido. Ya sé que a Marilyn Monroe le parece una "brisa deliciosa" en 'La tentación vive arriba' ('The Seven Year Itch', Billy Wilder, 1955), pero no.

En la cinta, Tom Ewell da vida a un neoyorquino de imaginación exagerada que atraviesa una crisis de madurez, pasa el verano en un caluroso Nueva York, mientras su mujer y sus hijos veranean en Maine. En su letargo estival conocerá a una pizpireta modelo de publicidad -Monroe- que alquila un apartamento en su mismo edificio. Ambos pasarán tiempo juntos y él, con su desbordante imaginación, creerá tener una relación con su vecina.

'Tú a Boston y yo a California' (1961)

Nunca fui a un campamento de verano, por lo que hasta donde sé, podría tener una hermana gemela, idéntica a mí, en algún lugar del mundo. Y por supuesto, jamás podremos intercambiar nuestras identidades para conocer el mundo de la otra y conseguir que nuestros padres vuelvan a enamorarse. Pero como dije antes, las expectativas del cine jamás se cumplen y nunca fui esa niña pija londinense que se intercambiaba con su hermana californiana.

Pero una vez más, poco importa. En 'Tú a Boston y yo a California' ('The Parent Trap', David Swift,1961), Hayley Mills ya lo vivía por mí -y mi hermana gemela inexistent, obvio-, y ella y su versión doble conseguían que sus padres -Brian Keith y la pelirroja más pelirroja de Hollywood, Maureen O'Hara- volvieran a juntarse en aquel romántico rancho californiano.

'Búsqueme a esa chica' (1964)

Lo sé. Un salto muy drástico con referencia a las otras películas. Pero no podía dejar de incluirla, por la genialidad que supone ver en una misma película a dos íconos pop de la España de los 60: Marisol y el Dúo Dinámico. Y más si en ella, la niña prodigio y el guapo del dúo vivían un romance veraniego.

En 'Búsqueme a esa chica', Marisol -Pepa Flores- trata de ganarse la vida con su padre en Palma de Mallorca, cuando un ricachón descubre a la chica y quiere convertirla en una estrella, a cambio de alejarla de su padre. Entre tanto, Marisol conoce al Dúo Dinámico y se enamora de uno de ellos. Y hay números musicales tan kitsch y exquisitos como el de arriba.

'Las señoritas de Rochefort' (1967)

Y pasamos de un musical cañí español a uno francés, muy francés, pero rezumando amor por el musical de Hollywood. Sí, hablo de la deliciosa 'Las señoritas de Rochefort' del maestro Jacques Demy, uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos. Y por suerte, transcurre en verano, hay romances y encuentran un hueco en esta lista y por lo tanto, una buena excusa para recuperarla.

Aquí, Catherine Deneuve y Françoise Dorléac -su hermana en la vida real- dan vida a unas gemelas que dan clases de danza y música en la aburrida Rochefort -si véis la película, no es aburrida para nada-. Quieren irse a vivir a París y con el verano, llegan a la ciudad marineros, feriantes y demás, que despertarán las ansias de romance de las jóvenes. Comedia fresquita con números musicales exquisitos, colores, asesinatos y Gene Kelly, ahí lo digo todo.

'El Graduado' (1967)

Y aunque 'El Graduado' ('The Graduate', Mike Nichols) no es una película musical, sí tiene una canción que pasó a la historia: 'Mrs.Robinson' de Simon and Garfunkel, y sin duda la banda sonora ideal para el amor prohibido entre un joven y una mujer madura, a los que dieron vida Dustin Hoffman y Anne Bancroft.

Y es que claro, el verano para unos es sinónimo de descanso y para otros, de intentar decidir qué hacer con sus vidas. Es el caso del personaje de Hoffman, que regresa a casa de sus padres tras graduarse en la universidad. Y mientras sus padres quieren que salga con la hija de unos amigos, será la madre de ésta quien trate seducir al joven e inocente muchacho. Ya saben, el calor y la carne fresca.

'Grease' (1978)

Vale. Lo sé: 'Grease' no cuenta un romance veraniego, pero permitidme la licencia, porque si no hubiera sido por uno, uno de los musicales más míticos de los 70 no habría sucedido jamás. Y es que todo empieza cuando Sandy y Danny, dos adolecentes -interpretados por los treintañeros Olivia Newton John y John Travolta- se despiden tras haber vivido uno de esos ídilicos amores veraniegos, pensando que no volverán a verse.

¡Y qué equivocados estaban! Gracias al maravilloso destino cinematográfico, después del verano ella comenzará el curso en un nuevo instituto...¿y adivinad quién estudia también ahí? ¡Bingo! Lo demás es historia llena de gomina, descapotables, chicle y faldas con vuelo. Y de nada por el vídeo con la letra de 'Summer Nights', por si queréis marcaros un Sing'a'long'

'Pauline en la playa' (1983)

Y nos ponemos un poco más serios y volvemos al cine francés y uno de sus grandes cineastas, Éric Rohmer. Y como en todo su cine, en 'Pauline en la playa' ('Pauline à la plage'), parece que deje la cámara y las historias surgen de forma espontánea y orgánica ante ella. Y parece que no le fue mal, ya que la cinta le valió el Oso de Plata a la Mejor Dirección en la Berlinale de ese año.

De ritmo pausado -ya saben, rohmeriana- como el mejor de los veranos, en 'Pauline en la playa' conocemos Marion y su joven prima Pauline, pasan unas vacaciones en un balneario en Normandía. Allí, la primera se reencontrará con un viejo amor y la segunda, comenzará a descubrir lo que un buen amorío de verano puede dar de sí.

'Dirty Dancing' (1987)

Lo confieso. He visto 'Dirty Dancing' millones de veces, pero nunca me avergonzará decirlo y tengo la suerte de que, con los años, se ha convertido en una cinta de culto y manifiesto feminista. Y viene al pelo porque resulta que cuenta uno de los romances veraniegos más míticos y sensuales de los 80, porque quien no se haya sentido identificado alguna vez con Baby y ese "No dejaré que nadie te arrincone" que le dice Johnny Castle, está mintiendo.

En la cinta, Baby (Jennifer Gray), una recién graduada del instituto va a parar con sus padres y su hermana a un lugar de estos de vacaciones en los que solamente hay jubilados. Por suerte, entre los animadores del lugar hay un bailarín excesivamente atractivo (las niñas de los 80 te querremos siempre, Patrick Swayze) y sensible, que por azares del destino -siempre- tendrá que enseñar a bailar a Baby. Y claro, surge el amor.

'Mi chica' (1991)

Si nacistéis en los 80 y el comienzo de los 90 os pilló en plena infancia o entrando en la adolescencia, lo más propable es que el amor pre-adolescente de 'Mi chica' ('My Girl', Howard Zieff) os traumatizara para siempre. Y no os culpo, porque desde que la vi, mi gran temor son las abejas y avispas. Traumas infantiles a parte, la cinta que protagonizaron Anna Chlumsky y Macaulay Culkin, es ya todo un clásico del 'coming of age', del paso a la infancia a la adolescencia.

La cinta, básicamente, transcurre durante un verano en la vida de Vada, una niña hipocondríaca, que vive con un padre viudo director de una funeraria y pasa parte de su tiempo con su amigo Thomas, alérgico a todo. La niña comienza a sufrir los cambios de la adolescencia a la vez que su padre comienza una relación con su nueva empleada y su amigo y primer amor...bueno, no os lo cuento por si no la vistéis, pero...trauma.

'French Kiss' (1995)

A la pobre Meg Ryan la abandona su novio (Timothy Hutton) por una francesa y ésta afrontará su miedo a volar para viajar a Francia a recuperarlo. Claro, porque viajar a Francia en verano y pasar de París a la Costa Azul es toda una tortura, y mucho más, si conoces en el avión a un francés (o Kevin Kline) que se lleva entre manos negocios bastante chungos, en los que, sin duda, involucrará a la pobre Meg.

Pero no importa si en el fondo, ese francés caradura tiene su corazoncito -y sabe de vinos- y tratará de ayudar a Meg -vale, el personaje se llama Kate, pero ¿qué importa?- a recuperar a su novio. Y bueno, todos sabemos qué no lo hará. Y todo ello en un entorno de ensueño que va desde París, pasando por la campiña francesa y Niza. Todo muy encantador y entrañable. Ni tan mal, Meg.

Trilogía 'Antes del amanecer' (1995 - 2004 - 2013)

Sé que soy un poco pesada con la famosa trilogía de Richard Linklater, protagonizada por Ethan Hawke y Julie Delpy, pero ¿qué le vamos a hacer si son auténticas maravillas además de contener altas dosis de romanticismo sin alejarse nunca de la cruda realidad? Y sí, las tres transcurren en verano y sí, las tres incluyen historias de amor.

En 'Antes del amanecer' ('Before Sunrise', 1995), Jesse y Céline se conocían y vivían una intensa noche de verano en Viena. No se volverían a encontrar hasta 9 años después en 'Antes del atardecer' ('Before Sunset', 2004) y durante una calurosa tarde en París con final abierto. Y otros 9 años pasaron hasta que conocimos ¿el final? de su historia en una isla griega en 'Antes del anocheceder' ('Before Midnight,'2013)

'El Talento de Mr.Ripley' (1999)

Muchísimo más turbio es el romance veraniego que nos contó Anthony Minghella en 1999 en 'El talento de Mr. Ripley' ('The talented Mr. Ripley'), en un entorno y con un reparto de ensueño: Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow y Matt Damon protagonizaron este thriller psicológico ambientada en la soleada Italia de los años 50.

Basada en la novela homónima de Patricia Highsmith, aquí, Matt Damon da vida a Ripley, un chaval de lo más corriente, que viaja a Italia para conseguir que el hijo de su jefe -el maravilloso Jude Law-, un vividor y ganador nato regrese a casa, por el que se sentirá rápidamente atraído. La cosa se lía de tal manera, que Ripley tratará de vengarse ante el rechazo suplantando la identidad del otro. Ambición, atracción y celos en la maravillosa Italia y con gente muy guapa. Porque sí, Cate Banchett también participa en la película.

'Y tu mamá también' (2001)

Ya lo he comentado más arriba, pero con el calorcito la sangre nos llega a todas partes menos a la cabeza y claro, si dos chavales saliendo de la adolescencia como Diego Luna y Gael García Bernal conocen a una mujer más mayor como Maribel Verdú y ésta acepta a unirse a un viaje en furgoneta con ellos, pues se puede liar considerablemente.

Ante la sorpresa de los chavales de que ella haya aceptado, tendrán que ingeniarselas para hacer el viaje y el resultado es una sexy road-trip que cambiara la forma de entender la vida de los tres. Por cierto, es el cuarto largometraje de Alfonso Cuarón, el segundo que rodó en castellano y el que le convirtió en uno de los jóvenes realizadores mexicanos de mayor proyección internacional. Lo demás, ya lo conocemos.

'Ma mère' (2005)

Sí, lo sé, puede que 'Ma mère' de Christophe Honoré cuente una historia de amor demasiado perversa e incestuosa. Pero es que, al fin y al cabo, es una historia de amor y transcurre en verano y su propuesta es lo suficientemente interesante para que os hable de ella y os la descubra, si no la conocéis, aunque que esté protagonizada por Isabelle Huppert y Louis Garrel ya debería ser suficiente.

En su segundo largometraje, Honoré cuenta las perturbadoras vavaciones de una madre y su hijo recién salido de la adolescencia en Mallorca. Él no necesita nada más que el afecto de su madre y ella, con tendencias autodestructivas introducirá a su hijo en el universo sado-masoquista para alcanzar el amor maternal absoluto. Sudor, sexo sucio, tríos e incesto en este perverso relato.

'500 días juntos' (2006)

Puede que lo que más me guste de '500 días juntos' ('500 Days of Summer', Marc Webb) es que no se trata de una comedia romántica al uso, sino que es todo lo contrario: desmitifica el amor romántico perfecto, pero sin llegar a hacer que lo odies. Y como todas las pelis de esta lista, parte de su trama ranscurre en verano, por no hablar del juego de palabras de su título origina que significa '500 días de verano', siendo Summer, además, el nombre de la protagonista.

En la cinta, Joseph Gordon-Levitt da vida a un joven que trabaja escribiendo cartas de felicitación y cree en el amor verdadero, mientras que Summer (Zooey Deschanel), dejó de creer en él cuando sus padres se divorciaron. Él caerá prendidamente enamorado de ella, ella de él no tanto, y éste tratará de reconstruir su relación par ver donde estuvo el problema y poder recuperarla.

'Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona' (2008)

No, no es la mejor película de Woody Allen ni de lejos, pero causó cierto revuelo en su momento por estar rodada en nuestro país y lógicamente, por reunir a nuestras dos estrellas más internacionales: Javier Bardem y Penélope Cruz. Además, es el claro ejemplo de lo que puede pasarle a dos americanas ingenuas que vienen de vacaciones a nuestro país: porque todos los hombres son tan pasionales como el personaje de Bardem y todas las mujeres están locas como el personaje de Cruz. Esto...no.

En la cinta, Vicky y Cristina, dos americanas, viajan de vacaciones a Barcelona. Mientras la primera es sensata y está apunto de casarse, la segunda busca todo tipo de aventuras. ¡Y vaya si las encuentra! Conocerá a un atractivo pintor con el que comenzará un romance...con él y con su inestable ex-mujer.

'Adventureland' (2009)

Greg Mottola dirigía en 2009 a Jesse Eisenberg y Kristen Stewart en 'Adventureland', una claro ejemplo de como un verano que no va a ser como esperabas puede convertirse en algo más o menos mejor -ahí, según las prioridades de cada uno-.

Así, en la cinta, estamos en el verano de 1987 y Eisenberg da vida a un recién graduado en la universidad, que al terminar el curso decide ir a recorrer Europa en sus vacaciones, para después empezar Periodismo en la Universidad de Columbia. Pero sus problemas económicos se lo impedirán, y terminará trabajando en 'Adventureland', donde conocerá a la enigmática Emily.

'Primos' (2011)

Si te dejan plantado en el altar, la cosa más lógica que puedes hacer a continuación es ir al pueblo donde pasaste los veranos de tu infancia para recuperar a tu amor de adolescencia. Lo normal. Por suerte, todo vale en el cine y ¡menos mal! Porque con 'Primos', Daniel Sánchez Arévalo filmó su mejor y más entrañable comedia.

Así, Quim Gutiérrez y sus primos Raúl Arévalo y Adrián Lastra viajan a Comillas (Cantabria), en plenas fiestas de verano, para que el primero se reencuentre con Inma Cuesta, su primer gran amor. Entre hortalizas, canciones de los Backstreet Boys, verbenas y ferias de pueblo, transcurre este(os) divertido(s) y entrañable(s) romance(s).

'Moonrise Kingdom' (2012)

Y otro verano retro, pero esta vez de 1965 y reproducido bajo la fascinante y mágina mirada de Wes Anderson, lo que implica que 'Moonrise Kingdom' es, sin duda, una cinta de lo más especial, con campamento de verano incluído y una apuesta visual casi, casi, convertida en icónica.

Sam y Suzy se conoce en un campamento de verano, donde los niños pre-adolescentes pasan el día haciendo todo tipo de actividades y viviendo mil aventuras. Pero Sam y Suzy se han enamorado y planearán una escapada para poder vivir juntos y a su manera, fuera de el universo estricto paternal.

'Un jeune poète' (2014)

Aunque creo que no se ha estrenado en España, si alguna vez os topáis con 'Un jeune poète' (Damien Manivel), ni lo dudéis. Y es que me ha parecido oportuno hablaros de ella porque es una cinta interesantísima sobre madurar, las ambiciones -y pretensiones- de la juventud y encontrar el lugar de uno en el mundo. Y claro está, porque transcurre en verano y hay un romance, que para eso hemos venido.

En la cinta, el pobre Rémi sueña con ser poeta y fascinar al mundo con sus versos y por ello, viaja en soledad a la calurosa ciudad de Sète, en el sur de Francia, con lapicero y cuaderno para buscar la inspiración y escribir poemas maravillosos. Rémi lo intenta con todas sus fuerzas, hasta que se enamora de una joven y podrá, por fin, escribir algo. Lo mejor de la cinta, son los penosos intentos de Rémi de ser bohemio. Mucho postureo, vamos.

'Kiki, el amor se hace' (2016)

En su tercer largometrjae como director, Paco León habla de todo tipo de filias sexuales extrañas y como no podía ser de otra forma, asocia el sexo con el verano. Porque en el Madrid que nos muestra León en 'Kiki, el amor se hace', hae mucho calor y parece que esto hace aumentar el deseo sexual de sus habitantes y despierta sus más oscuras -y raras- filias.

Una película coral, muy veraniega y colorida y que a ritmo de pop es toda una oda a la diferencia, a la liberación sexual y claro está, al amor veraniego.

          Pokerstars Championship Monte Carlo – Resultat & Rapporter   

I helgen avslutades Pokerstars Championship i Monte Carlo, och det blev Raffaele Sorrentino, Bryn Kenney och Adrian Mateos som tog de tyngsta skalparna. I svensklägret gick det bäst för Martin Jacobson.

Pokerstars Championship har hitintills besökt Sydamerika (Bahamas & Panama) och Asien (Macau). Nu har den första upplagan i Europa avgjorts, och klassiska Monte Carlo Casino i Monaco agerade värd för den tillställningen.

(En komplett överblick av samtliga Highroller-resultat hittar du längst ner på sidan.)

Raffaele Sorrentino vinner Main Event

Mexiko-baserade italienaren Raffaele Sorrentino vann festivalens Main Event.

Sorrentino PSC Monte Carlo
Sorrentinos bästa liveresultat hittills

Det utsatta förstapriset var satt till €500,700, men Sorrentino och hans heads-up motståndare Andreas Klatt kom överens om en deal där man lämnade €15,000 och titeln att spela om.

Dealen garanterade Sorrentino €451,774 och Klatt €402,76. Tillslut blev det Sorrentino som tog hem de sista pengarna.

Finalspelet avgjordes med en riktig cooler. Italienaren plockade upp den bästa starthanden i Texas Hold’em, och samtidigt så kollade hans motståndare ner på två damer.

Alla markerna åkte in före floppen, och efter en blank bräda kunde Sorrentino titulera sig som mästaren.

”Det är en dröm som blir till verklighet. Det kändes som att jag kunde göra det här för en vecka sedan, och desto närmare jag kom, desto mer trodde jag på det”, sa en utmattad men glad Sorrentino efter segern.

Bästa svensk i Main Event blev Martin Jacobson. Han slutade på 83:e plats för €9,540. Även Peter Eichhardt nådde pengarna. Han kom på 142:a plats för €7,580.

          Elliot Smith vinner Pokerstars Championship Macau   

Det var en av de längsta heads-up matcherna i pokerns historia, men tillslut kunde kanadensaren Elliot Smith lyfta Main Event trofén i Pokerstars Championship Macau.

Smith spelade mot lokalbon Terry Tang i 10,5 timma innan han lyckades vinna turneringen genom en klassisk flipp.

Med Ess-Kung limp/synade han Terry Tangs all-in pre-flop. Tang satt på pocketsexor, och när en sexa landade på floppen såg det ut som att maratonmatchen skulle fortsätta ännu längre, men turn och rivern gav Smith fyrfärgen samt förstapriset på $370,508.

Tang fick $331,816 i tröstpris.

Anonymt Finalbord

Finalbordet blev en relativt anonym historia. Den mest kända spelaren var den australiensiska grindern Daniel Laidlaw.

PSC Macau
Dealen drog ut på tiden

Laidlaw blev dock väldigt shortstackad med tre spelare kvar, och när han stoppade in sina sista marker med Ess-Tio så åkte han ut efter att Smith dragit ut honom med Kung-Fem.

När Laidlaw försvann satte Smith och Tang omedelbart igång at diskutera en deal. Det tog dem över en timma att komma överens, och eventuellt kom man fram till att dela upp prispengarna och lämna HK$300,000 att spela om.

Dealen ingick ej i den beräknade speltiden, och under den 10,5 timma långa heads-up duellen fick vi se färgstegar, en ledning som skiftade flera gånger och ovanligt få all-ins.

Övriga spelare på finalbordet var Avraham Oziel, Aymon Hata, Pete Chen, Yan Li och Xuan Tan.

Bästa svensk blev Sofia Lövgren. Hon slutade på 44:e plats för $13,000.

Totalt deltog 546 spelare. Det skapade en prispott på dryga $2,6M.

Nästa stopp för Pokerstars Championship blir i Monte Carlo mellan 25:e april till 5:e maj.

Resultat Main Event Pokerstars Championship Macau

Elliot Smith (Kanada) - $370,508 Terry Tang (Kina) - $331,816 Daniel Laidlaw (Australien) - $221,896 Avraham Oziel (Kanada) - $164,749 Aymon Hata (Tyskland) - $122,275 Pete Chen (Taiwan) - $90,741 Yan Li (Kina) - $67,058 Xuan Tan (Kina) - $49,682

          Kenny Smaron vinner PSC Panamas Main Event   

Pokerstars Championships Main Event i Panama har fått en vinnare, och det blev tillslut onlinegrindern Kenny Smaron som tog hem titeln efter att ha besegrat amatören Harpreet Gill Heads-up.

Pokerstars Championship i Panama har präglats av låga deltagarsiffror. I tourens Main Event kom endast 366 spelare till start. Det är Pokerstars lägsta Main Event-siffra sedan EPT Tallin 2011.

Vi fick dock se flera intressanta namn dyka upp i det lilla spelarfältet.

Under Dag 1A kom blandandra Ryan Riess, Steve O’Dwyer och Tito Ortiz till start, och inför Dag 2 tog spelare som Martin Jacobson, Bryn Kenney och Erik Seidel en sistaminuten chans.

Bland dessa gick den inbjudne MMA-fightern klart bäst, och Ortiz slutade eventuellt på 22:a plats för sin första pokercash någonsin.

Harpreet Gill PSC Panama
Gill överlevde flera flippar

Det blev tyvärr inget lyckat event ur svenskperspektiv. Martin Jacobson åkte ut redan efter 70 minuter, och totalt ställde endast 5 svenskar upp. Den enda som nådde pengarna var Karim Zerzour som slutade på 61:a plats för en mincash.

Svängig finaldag

Inför Main Events sista dag återstod sex spelare. Ryssen Denis Timofeev satt på den klart största stacken följd utav Robin Wozniczek från Tyskland.

Kenny Smaron låg i mitten medan Harpreet Gill var en av bordets shortstacks.

Gill skulle dock komma att lyckas dubbla upp flera gånger när han satt på rätt sida om slantsinglingarna, och det var tillräckligt för att nå Heads Up:en.

Där mötte han onlinespecialisten Kenny Smaron.

När duellen inleddes låg de båda motståndarna nästan lika, men Smarons erfarenhet visade sig bli avgörande. Han spelade ut Gill som uppenbarligen hade bestämt sig för att ta en aggressiv linje, och i den sista handen synade han av en optimistisk all-in från Gill.

Kenny Smaron Panama
Kenny Smaron med titeln

Från knappen limpade Gill 8 T, och Smaron höjde upp med K J. Gill tänkte ett kort tag innan han stoppade in alla sina marker.

Smaron synade, och när brädan rann ut A Q 9 9 5 så var turneringen avgjord.

Med Kung-Hög vann Smaron potten samt det utsatta förstapriset på $293,860. Harpreet Gill belönades med $217,860 för sin andraplats.

”Jag ska ta ledigt några dagar nu och fira det här ikväll, men sedan återvänder jag till onlinegrinden”, sa en glad Smaron efter segern.

          Koray Aldemir vinner Triton Cup för $1,292,653   

Idag avgjordes Super Highroller-serien Triton Cup i Manila, Filippinerna, och det blev Koray Aldemir från Tyskland som tog hem Main Event för nästan $1,3M.

Asiatiska Triton Cup har de senaste åren lockat de absolut största namnen för sina Highroller-event.

Till och med spelare som Tom Dwan och svenska Mikael Thuritz har avbrutit sina beryktade cashgame-sessioner i Macau för att komma dit och spela.

2017 års första stopp blev inget undantag.

Inköpet till Main Event låg på HK$1,000,000 ($128,861), och i lineupen fanns bland annat Phil Ivey, Daniel Colman, Dan Cates, Mustapha Kanit, Erik Seidel och formstarke Bryn Kenney.

Jungleman på finalbordet

29 spelare registrerade sig för Main Event. Tillsammans med 10 återinköp pressades prispotten upp till HK$37M ($4,77M).

Dan Cates
3:e plats för Jungleman

Turneringen spelades över tre dagar, och vid finalbordet fick vi se Dan Cates, Bryn Kenney, Koray Aldemir, Sergio Aido, Devan Tang samt fjolårets vinnare Wai Kin Yong.

Yong blev dock den första som fick lämna, följt av Tang och Kenney.

Med tre spelare kvar kom man överrens om en deal, och bara några händer senare fick Dan Cates röra sig mot railen efter att Sergio Aido slagit ut honom.

Aido inledde heads-up spelet med nästan dubbelt så mycket marker som Aldemir, men det var inte tillräckligt för spanjoren.

Aldemir vände på underläget, och efter att vunnit flera stora potter hade han grindat ner Aidos stack till bara 12 big blinds.

I den avgörande handen skickade Aldemir in allt med A 2. Aido synade med K 10.

Brädan landade: Q 9 8 3 5.

Koray Aldemir vann därmed titeln och $1,292,653 i prispengar. Sergio Aido återvänder dock hem med den största prischecken då han hade mest marker när dealen genomfördes.

Såhär slutade finalbordet:

Koray Aldemir (Tyskland) - $1,292,653* Sergio Aido (Spanien) - $1,337,186* Dan Cates (USA) - $1,000,490* Bryn Kenney (USA) - $506,090 Devan Tang (Kina) - $361,400 Wai Kin Yong (Malaysia) - $289,120

Colman vinner sidoevent, Macau på spelschemat

Daniel Colman
Colman fyller på bankrullen

Ett av seriens sidoevent – HK$250,000 6max vanns tillslut av Daniel Colman.

Finalbordet innehöll profiler som Erik Seidel, Rainer Kempe, Timofey ”Trueteller” Kuznetsov och Mustapha Kanit. Även Sergio Aido nådde dit.

I heads-up spelet besegrade Colman landsmannen Seidel för en prischeck på $473,408. Seidel fick $302,380 i tröstpris.

Nästa planerade stopp är Macau senare i år, och för att öka prispotten i Main Event kommer inköpet att dubblas enligt arrangörerna.

          Christian Harder vinner PSC Bahamas för $430k   

Den första upplagan av Pokerstars Championship har gått till historieböckerna, och precis som i sidoeventen var det amerikanarna som ryckte åt sig topplaceringarna.

När stridsröken lagt sig stod 29-åriga Christian Harder som segrare efter att ha slagit novembernian Cliff Josephy heads-up.

Harder är ett 29-årigt proffs från Annapolis, Maryland, och han har spelat på heltid sedan 9 år tillbaka. I karriären har han vunnit över $7M, men det här var hans första seger i ett av de större eventen.

”Det känns fantastiskt, jag har rest till varje destination på hela touren och aldrig vunnit något av de större eventen.” Säger Harder, han tillägger ”Det var här allt började 2008, så att få vinna en titel här känns grymt kul.”

För att vinna PSC Bahamas var Harder tvungen att ta sig igenom ett stjärntätt fält på 738 spelare. Hans insats belönades med $429,664.

Ridå för Gentili

Michael Gentili från Kanada gick in som chipleader när finalbordet drog igång. Strax bakom låg just Harder. De båda spelarna hade skaffat sig ett stabilt försprång mot övriga fältet.

Michael Gentili Pokerstars Championship
Besviken Gentili får lämna turneringen

Det blev dock ingen lyckad finaldag för Gentili, och han försvann som andra spelare på en femteplats.

Aleksei Opalikhin från Ryssland gjorde honom sällskap efter ha förlorat majoriteten av stacken mot Josephy innan Michael Vela tog hans sista marker med pocketkungar.

Trots elimineringen fick Vela ändå röra sig mot railen på en tredjeplats då Josephy rivrat en färg mot hans floppade par i sexor.

Inför heads-up:en var stackarna nästan identiska, med en marginell ledning för Harder. De kom därför överens om en deal som gav Harder $419k och Josephy $403k. Man lämnade $10k och titeln att spela om.

Duellen varade i drygt 30 minuter innan Harder kunde säkra segern då hans A J stod mot Josephys A 8.

Bästa svensk blev Mattias Priolo som slutade på 77:e plats för $9,120.

          Skrotad EPT – Historiskt fiasko eller genial strategi?    

Tidigare i år stod det klart att Pokerstars skrotar den mest anrika pokertouren utanför WSOP.

Från och med 2017 kommer vi alltså inte att få se någon mer EPT, LAPT eller APPT.

Istället väljer man att lansera två nya globala pokertourer för mid och highstakes-spelare.

Den före detta Pokerstarsmedlemmen Pierre Neuville har årtionden av erfarenhet från marknadsföringsbranschen, men även han har svårt att förstå motiven bakom pokerjättens beslut.

Pierre Neuville: ”Först och främst vill jag poängtera hur tråkigt det är att David Baazov tvingades lämna företaget temporärt. Jag var en väldigt god vän med David förut, och han frågade mig om råd innan han köpte Pokerstars.

Det togs inte emot så bra utav vissa personer, vilket ledde till att jag stängde mitt konto där.

Pierre Neuville
Neuville - en i raden som inte förstår Stars motiv

För tillfället har jag ingen kontakt med David, och jag förstår inte deras aktuella policy. Just nu ser det ut som att Pokerstars Live och Online är två helt skilda företag.

Förut var det tänkt att EPT:n skulle fungera som ett stöd till deras onlineaffärer, men nu verkar Pokerstars Live jobba mot sina egna mål.

För mig personligen som lärt ut marknadsföring under flera år är det oerhört förvånande att Pokerstars väljer att lägga ner ett så starkt varumärke. Min första tanke är att det är ett stort misstag.

Missförstå mig inte nu, jag vet inte vad strategin är. Jag vet inte vem som tar besluten och vilket koncept de följer.

Om Pokerstars strategi är att ta död på ett varumärke för att etablera en världstour så kanske det ändå finns en genial idé bakom det hela. Men ser man på det från utsidan kan det också bli ett historiskt fiasko.

Jag ser dock ingen strategi alls. De ställer in populära event som folk gillar att spela och åker till Panama, Panama!

Jag tror det kommer bli en katastrof, för det finns så många anledningar att inte åka till Panama. Skatteläget är osäkert, det är en lång resa till ett kort event och det lokala pokercommunityt har inte visat något intresse.

De dödar EPT:n, och de ersätter den med något som inte alls är på samma nivå.

Pierre Neuville
Idag håller han sig till livepoker

Det är många som vet om att jag investerade så mycket jag kunde när David Baazov köpte företaget. Vid den tidpunkten var jag förmodligen en av de viktigaste delägarna i Centraleuropa. Jag var övertygad om att jag skulle vara till stor hjälp för företaget eftersom jag hade kontakt med profiler på båda sidorna av Atlanten. Jag hade ett gott rykte och jag var en av de mest kända spelarna online.

Jag trodde att jag kunde vara väldigt värdefull som spelare och att jag kunde ge en hel del viktig input från en rådgivande nivå. Det kändes som att jag var tillbaka med Pokerstars igen.

Jag har dock fått ta emot en rätt så negativ respons, och det kom från personer jag inte ens kände, så för mig är det över, åtminstone tillsvidare.

Jag har slutat spela online. Jag fokuserar på att leva hälsosamt och jag spelar bara livepoker när jag känner för det. Jag njuter av livet.”

Ny säsong startar i januari

European Poker Tour går i graven med EPT Prag nästa månad, och deras nya Pokerstars Championship startar med event i Bahamas i januari.

Det följs upp utav turneringar i Panama, Macau, Monte Carlo och Barcelona. Då får vi de första svaren på några av alla frågetecken.

          Manu, Macaulay and Manmohan   

G. Haragopal
Member – Presidium, All India Forum for Right to Education


India is one society that has inherited one of the most iniquitous social structures that remained stubborn notwithstanding several socio-political movements including the freedom movement. Manu, the BrahmnicalHindu ideologue provided the framework and justification for not allowing all sections of the society, more sothe labouring classes and women of all communities not having access to written word. This dictum survives through thousands of years after the written word had been invented by the human species. The language of the powerful, Sanskrit, through which they wrote and communicated was their exclusive prerogative. Hinduism perhaps is the only religion that believes that human beings were born unequal and prevents equal access to God, supposedly the creator of man and woman. The denial of access to formal learning not only divided and hierarchised the society, but provided scope and space for manipulation by the propertied and the powerful. This social arrangement continued all through the medieval and colonial period.

             It was during the colonial period the English language started replacing the Sanskrit and other local languages. After the first war of independence in 1857, Macaulay advocated the introduction of English language and held that it was the only way to create a support base for the colonial rule. He thought, rightly so, that the English educated Indians would be Indian in colour and English in belief and behaviour. It was again the upper castes who took advantage of their social position and linguistic skills monopolized the opportunities in civil service, legal profession, media, teaching and so on.  The English language was as alien to the people as Sanskrit except that the Christian missionaries opened schools where the hitherto forbidden sections had an entry point. In fact they provided access to God though Church and formal learning though schools. This opening up made no qualitative difference to the basic structure of social relations, but created a class of people, as Macaulay believed, who were entrapped into colonial mind-set and continue to perpetuate it even after six decades of the so-called victory of anti-colonial freedom struggle.

         It was Phule and SavitribaiPhule realising the importance of role of education started schools, particularly for girls. Education for all as an idea entered the freedom movement in the early part of the last century and picked up momentum and by 40s is came to be accepted by the Congress party who resolved to universalise right to education within a decade after independence. Given the aspirations and promise of the freedom movement it ought to have been incorporated in the fundamental rights chapter but on the grounds of resources and Nation’s preparedness it was pushed into non-justiciable directive principles of State policy.

       The silver lining immediately after independence was that whatever or wherever schools existed or newly opened they were all publicly funded common schools resembling the ‘neighbourhood schools’ concept as all children living in the vicinity went to the same school and studied through their mother tongue as medium of instruction. The limitation was that there was no concerted effort to ensure that all children go to the school which resulted in an India that has the distinction of having the largest number of illiterates in the world. This policy, by and large, continued till 1985-86. There was a shift in the policy which instead of initiating measures to provide access and quality education to all children introduced the policy of multi-layered schools bringing in inequity and inequality that Manu and Macaulay did earlier.

     The widespread mass unrest in India on various counts including the growing inequalities compelling the rulers to take some measures and Right to Education Act of 2009 is one such step which is supposed to have encoded the right to education as a fundamental right. While this step is important in letter, the spirit of the Act is not qualitatively different from Manu, Macaulay mindset. The Act should have straight away scraped all the private schools and has gone for common school through neighbourhood schools and raising the standardsof each school to that of central school. Instead the Act talks of private-public partnership which in principals concedes the continued presence of private schools at one level and accentuates the medium of instruction divide. It talks of 25% reservation of seats to poorer children in corporate schools. One starts wondering how a fundamental right could be so dividing and discriminatory. This has led to a country-wide debate whether the right in this form can ever be treated and accepted as a fundamental right. The public-private partnership is a device of the neo-liberal model to plunder public resources for private profiteering. The corporate schools used to amassing of wealth challenged the Act in the Courts opposing the admission of poor children into their schools. Assuming that the Court in principle concedes, which is very unlikely, what happens to the other 75% of the poor children condemned to study in government schools which are poorly funded and qualitatively  inferior. Is it not the time that the nation in one voice demands that all children of this country in the age group of 0-18 have equal access to quality education though common schools though neighbourhood schools?

          The scenario in higher education is equally pitiable. There are six to eight bills waiting for parliamentary ratification. Of all the bills the most Macaulian is the Foreign Universities Bill. KapilSibal addressing the last All India Vice Chancellors conference looked concerned about only two issues: the Foreign Universities Bill and introduction of semesterisation in Delhi university as if they are the only issues afflicting higher education. Of course, during the recent visit of Manmohan Singh to the USA, one of the items that came up in the discussion with Obama was opening up of higher education for foreign investment. The Prime Minister in his Independence day address to the nation from the Red Fort made a specific reference to the urgency of educational reforms. The saddest part of higher education is the pathetic conditions of State Universities. No state government, without exception, has any interest left in higher education as the sons and daughters of the ruling classes go for private medical, engineering, legal and other professional streams of education. The most prosperous are sending their children to foreign universities and are arguing that the ‘craze’ can be met only by inviting foreign universities to the Indian soil. It is precisely this cause that led to serious cuts in grants, stopping recruitment of new staff and all forms of support of the state. In the same breath they also want to privatise accreditation, distance education, tribunalization of educational litigation, abolition of UGC and manning the new council for higher education with corporate representatives. The teaching fraternity lured by the 6th pay commission evinced no interest in the neo-liberal assault on higher education.

    It is the wake of these drastic changes in school and university education, the All India Forum for Right to Education held its national conference in Yusuf Meharelly centre near Bombay. The forum draws its membership from socialists, Lohiaites, Gandhians, leftists, radicals and democratise. They are drawn from 16 states of India and are engaged in building a nationwide movement against these undemocratic, uncalled for, anti people reforms in education. It is time that spirit of freedom struggle is retrieved and we build a movement for an equitable, humane, fair and just society. The cause of education is one of the powerful weapons to realize this goal. This would invariably be a fight against Manu-Macaulay-Manmohan mind-set. The posterity may not forgive this generation of academia. These sections are bound to carry their own battle against unjust society with or without the support of the academia.

          The future of 200 million Children: Right to Education   
Dear All,

India has around 230 million children currently in age group 6-16. In the next decade, all these would cross 16 years of age, and reach a stage where more formal education is practically impossible.

Of these, around 30 million would get a chance to study in reasonable to good to excellent quality schools, some in a few good Govt. schools, but mostly private fee charging schools, including those for upper income and elite groups.

Remaining 200 odd million, if ASER and other such official and non-official reports are correct, would receive very poor quality education in the bulk of average government schools or low cost private schools. With RTE provisions and criterion coming in force, it would not be legally feasible for low cost private schools to exist as recognized schools, so the bulk of responsibility of educating these 200 million children will be of Government Schools.

Most of us know, and agree, that average quality of education in most Government Schools is very bad, which means that 200 million of today's children will become adult without receiving a minimum quality school education, which will not only keep them poor and under-developed, but also lead to poor development of the country.

The only solution is to significantly improve the quality of Government schools, with 3-5 years.

I request and invite forum readers to give no more than 5 suggestions that would improve the quality of education in a time bound 3-5 years, so the improvements in learning levels of children can be measured in concrete manner, by ASER or NCERT studies.

I hope this exercise of sifting through various actionable ideas would not only show a way to move forward, it will also make "Improvements in Govt. Schools within 3-5 years', a declared and formal policy agenda of the Government.

Response to this mail (Right To Education):
1. All kids in a particular locality must attend the public school in that locality [Like you collect your ration from a PDS outlet in your area].

2. This will ensure children of MLA, MP, Collector and every other influential person enroll in the neighbourhood school only.

3. Standard of this school will improve overnight.

4. Last but not least.

What type of education we are imparting in the so called best schools?

Glorified Macaulay's clerks and herd to work as coolies and slaves to monied masters in alien lands and in Indian cities.

The whole system of education is irrelevent to the people at large.

Can a civil engg graduate from the IIT lay a single brick?

Can the agri graduate from any best agri college produce one grain of paddy?

Proof of the pudding is in the eating.

i view that we should think more seriously about the education our children
==================

Compulsory Character Building- Right To Education (RTE)

Right To Education (RTE) ensures compulsory and free education? Does it also ensure quality education? If yes does quality would mean to give first importance to bookish knowledge or first priority to character development?

In Hind Swaraj, Mahatma Gandhi categorically prescribed that character building is of utmost importance for a meaningful process of education. He quotes Professor Huxley who asserts that a man is an educated man whose body is the ready servant of his will and does with ease and pleasure all the work that as a mechanism it is capable of; whose intellect is a clear, cold, logic engine with all its parts of equal strength and in smooth working order...whose mind is stored with a knowledge of the fundamental truths of nature . . . whose passions are trained to come to heel by a vigorous will, the servant of a tender conscience, who has learnt to hate all vileness and to respect others as himself. Such a one and no other, I conceive, has had a liberal education, for he is in harmony with nature.

From the above we do infer that body, mind and character building are the primary goals of education. Bookish knowledge could be a mere tool. In a further deterioration some of us are satisfied by mere literacy. Some others say that the development of 3Rs is enough. Some parents get satisfaction from the achievement of admission of their children into desired courses. Some teachers are just contented with the achieving of required criterion of pass percentages of their students. Some managements are proud of the academic results of their students in their schools in the Board examinations. Many employers look for those candidates who are skilled in their work areas. It is all painful. In this neo-liberal environment, some of these stakeholders give token importance to character building of their students. To put it strongly our nation is being cheated by these so-called well wishers.

There is no need to tell you the current stories of malpractices, cheating, deceptions, and frauds played by these so-called educated employees. We must create a new kind of man by seeking directions from our cultural roots where character building was given the most important component of life and hence, that of education too. Accordingly, we need not give importance to mere knowledge scores aiming for a knowledge society but rather we must give importance to the development of character aiming to develop a humane society. We must be careful to recognise that mere literacy skills and pure knowledge marks are harmful for the development of a humane society.

For the process of building a humane society, give importance to all the four pillars of education as enunciated by the Education Reform Commission chaired by Jacques Delors. The four pillars are: learning to know, learning to do, learning to live together and learning to be. We wish to reiterate that all four pillars are important otherwise the structure will surely fall. It is like taking a jump with full set of needed requirements to cross a stream; half-step jump over the stream is surely going to be disastrous. Let us understand the message from a letter[1] sent by an American Principal to his teaching staff on the first day of every academic year which illustrates this point.
Dear Teachers, “I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no man should witness: Gas chambers built by learned engineers. Children poisoned by educated physicians. Infants killed by trained nurses. Women and babies shot and burned by high school and college graduates. So, I am suspicious of education. My request is that teachers help students become human. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths, educated Eichmanns. Reading, writing, arithmetic are important only if they serve to make our children more humane”.


The RTE 2010 has ensured Right to Education, but we must ensure that it is real quality education with full emphasis on character development. The often lop-sided available left brain education must become whole brain education.
Let us look what is happening around us in a majority of cases. Inside schools parents need not push their children. They must stop solo-development of learning of academic subjects. Teachers must go beyond book oriented environments.
School employers should support their teachers on the basis of the requirements of National Curriculum Framework 2005. Higher education institutions like universities, IITs, IIMs, etc., must look into their admission criterion. Employers must give importance to character development.
Let us take care of our education system in a systemic manner.

The most cost effective solution is at Rs 10 per child per day we can help them all become members of what we may call the moedrn times and explore their own potential.

The leadership in India has no track record of thinking beyond a 5 year plan. This requires thinking for the nation in at least 15 to 20 year cycle.

So, what should Govt. do with Rs. 3650/- (365* 10) earmarked for each child.

Give the money to each parent to be spent on (?) food, health, education??? How do you ensure that it will be spent on child, and not on the drinking habit of father?

Give it as payment to any agency that guarantees assured quality education up to high school? (Practical examples exist, but you will be shouted down since this would be seen as privatization of education.)

You might have noted that Mumbai Municipal Corporation spends more than Rs. 40000/- on each child that is enrolled in its school, Ahmedabad Corporation spends around Rs. 20000/.

Mr Jain,

My suggestions are as follows:

For the past 63 years we have tried several remedies to make India literate- universally. And have the success that we see. Nearly 96% are not "educated". They are merely literate. They do not contribute to the level of thinking this group engages in. They do not have the skills to be able to "office work" at any given level of benchmark. They live life differently. They have little skills that are valued by others beyond simply using their physical skills.

To change that requires a transformational change.
To be able to "learn how to learn" or "learning learning".
To be able to acquire skills as needed.
To be able to think about the world they live in.

The literacy campaign is about giving them one skill: an ability to read the alphabets, add a few simple numbers and may be put a signature that we cannot read.

The education campaign may be about going through a curriculum, as dated as CBSE or what have you.

But learning is a little different. Its an ability to undersatnd and know how to find out what is to be learnt and know how to reach there.

Today, technologies have made it possible to do so cheaply, a bit like cell phone. Just like 15 years ago it was incomprehensible to think that India could take the phones to villages and cell phones changed all that, today its not possible to think of "educating" everyone but OLPC has changed all that.

Now, if we use the OLPC approach, Rs 10 helps a child have a laptop, 230 applications, 100 digital books, a laptop they can maintain, that is connected even if there is no internet, can become the foundation on which education and learning can be built and the teachers begin to learn with the children at a pace they never did before.

Of course there will be individual variations that is natural no matter where one goes.

But this approach allows a child in a village with no electricity and usually no quality teachers to start learning a bit like they would in a privileged environment, of course without the benefit of sociology that privileges and affluence with bring them.

However, in acquiring skills, understating the world around them, in being curious and learning in a way that excites rather than as a regimented activity, OLPC has raised the bar and is making a couple million children explore the world like was unthinkable before its advent.

You may want to take a look at www.olpcindia.net and let us discuss on this forum how we can improve things.

Thanks so much

Somehow our NRI's have arrogated to themselves the power to rundown everyone in India as "leadership in India has no track record of thinking". With sone humility I submit that simplistic solutions are not the answer. We are dealing with 120 million children (more than the population of many countries).

Dear friends

i find it difficult to find right answers ---- some random thoughts in favor of plurality and decentralization

1= i hope and believe that Sarvodya Model for identifying management issues and for creating local solutions [not finding solutions] to the locally identified problems will work-- solutions should evolve through acceptable group dynamics
2= withdraw all the current uniform rules of bureaucracy
3= must introduce diversity / flexibility in management by and from parents
4= flexible procedures may be tried out but these must be based on local unanimity of decision making
5= on-going inclusive involvement of all parents alone is a must in all matters of schools [private or govt]
6= bring back autonomy like that of gurukul system, and have in teachers let our must country mature toward that goal
7= give reasonable financial advances to parents body [gram sabhahs, mohalla sabhahs]

Dear Naaz,

The effective and decentralized decision making at the level of even Taluka Panchayat, leave alone any lower level, is incompatibe with our current Government School system, which is designed as an integrated State level monopoly. Teachers are currently recruited by State system, and only posted at local body level. State level bodies take all critical decisions about the curriculum and resource-budget use.

Transferring effective control over education to Panchayat body would require major restructuring that would be fierecely opposed by teachers' unions, and frankly, it would end up promoting PPP school model, which is easy to control by a local body. I am not sure, many forum members really want that.

The brass-track of performance linked budget can vary, but in essence the budget would be approved for agencies with track record of qualiy performance, and renewal of budget over years, would be conditional to children attaining specified learning norms.

pankaj

My suggestions are:

1. All teachers' vacancies should be filled as soon as possible. All contract teachers should be replaced by permanent teachers.

2. In schools where the student-teacher ratio is good, naturally the quality is better. Instead of having a school in every km, the rule should be a classroom for every 30 underprivileged children in the locality.

3. The government should set up a department in each panchayat/municipality that would do quarter-yearly door-to-door surveys to determine the status of children in the society. This department will identify out-of-school children and dropouts.

4. Class 1 should be dedicated to teaching children their mother tongue.

5. The syllabus in all schools - CBSE, ICSE or state - should be unified. If members of all these boards participate in the making of the syllabus, the resultant syllabus will be good. Teachers may be used to rot learning techniques. They should be trained to do their jobs without rot learning.


There are more things that need to be done. Hygiene, for example, is invariably terrible in all schools. Then the training of teachers - the SET exam syllabus. I have no idea how to change anything here. But they should consult experts in education and train teachers for their job.

I do not have the mail id to forward this to anyone. Can you do it for me? Also, should i ask others to participate?

Dear All,

I have just returned from a long travel and eversince I have been mulling over this. I have read all the suggestions made so far. They are good.

Yes, high time we worked with a sense of purpose and met a deadline of minimum good quality education for 200 million children by 2020. As Pankaj says this is all the time we have before these children today in the age-group of 6-16 years reach a stage where more formal education is practically impossible.

If we fail to meet this deadline, we violate the fundamental right to education of as many as 200 million children and counting. Add to it the far reaching consequences the Country will have to face on the development front!

And, I hope, once a set of solutions is in sight, the media will play its part and prove itself for the children of India by actively tracking government pace and efforts to meet the dealine, just as it did for Delhi in case of the Common Wealth Games.

Now getting to the point, I humbly submit the following as the way to go in the next 3-5 years:

1. Put a cap on teacher transfers- a minimum of so many per state and no more. Transfers to be approved by the Chief Minister. The CMO to monitor teacher absenteeism and teacher punctuality, empowering SMC and Panchayat sub-committee on education for the purpose.

2. Give the same management autonomy as Kendriya Vidyalaya to the regular government schools.

3. Prestigious awards for best teacher in a cluster (CRC), best school, best SMC, best Panchayat, best block, best district and best state!

4. Plumbers (like electricity linesmen) to ensure proper working of drinking water facility in schools at all times. A sweeper per school to keep school premises and toilets clean. SMC to ensure consumables needed for maintenance and use are provided in case of both drinking water and toilets.

5. A children's group (a group for children that is their own i.e. one which is not formed and led by teachers but facilitated by them) in each school to discuss and share a range of issues affecting them within and outside the school. Regular formal opportunities for children through this group to present proposals to SMC and the government for implementation.

6. Education and related departments to ensure school facilities as mandated by the RTE is in place immediately - school library, computer room, playground etc.

Thank you and regards,

Sir/ Madam,

Most suggestions made for improving quality are good and in the right direction, but I am afraid that most of these may/ will not produce results in a time bound manner, so we shall keep loosing the future of those who keep crossing schooling threshold.

May be, a policy that links, say 5-10%, of budget to 'learning outcome', will have higher chance of success. When faced with the choice of not having money in the absence of success, mind and body will really concentrate to get the results. It simply means that a section will have to be set up in each State Government's education department to handle 5-10% of education budget that can be spent only when assured gains in children's learning takes place, assessed by an independent agency appointed by the Government.

We know how the govt selects the agencies.

British were telling us that we were incompetent to rule ourselves. Now educated pundits tell us

Dear Pankaj,

Let me also try delving into your suggestion and in the process also seek a few clarifications. Do you mean linking 5-10% of the teacher and education officials 'Salary' budget to 'learning outcome'? Are you pointing towards a policy of performance based salaries? If this is the case, may be raise the percentage higher? Going by your understanding that money is short and results are poor, the need is to apply more pressure to get everyone on their feet.

And, I should think, the 'Assessment' can be done by an independent agency appointed by an all party parliamentary committee advised by non-governmental education experts/practitioners of the Country. NGO partners of the government would also like to stay out of this to make the whole enquiry impartial.

I agree with all the issues raised by members following your response to my mail.

Thank you and regards,

Naaz

Dear Naaz,

My suggestion has some nuances, though broadly, you get the drift of thinking.

I mean performance linked budget. It is difficult to link salary to performance, because the performance is produced by too many interacting people, some of whom perform well and some do not. Further, it is possible to show that apparently each has performed minimally well, still the minimum desired results are not produced. Knowing a bit about the way system function, I feel that accountability has to be pitched at the level of head of a system-group of people, who will take responsibility to deliver agreed results for a given budget.

My feeling is that linking more than 5-10% budget to outcome will not be politically feasible, so let us keep it realistic.

Regarding assessment, your way of thinking is absolutely right.

Pankaj

Education is a state subject. What is the role of a Parliamentary Committee here?

It is a great injustice that education has been included in the concurrent list.
It must be set right at once.

Even state ministers and secys do not understand the dist-wise educational needs.
How can a Kapil Sibal and a few ivory tower secys in Delhi understand what type of education is
needed by my village, taluk and dist?

India is a sub-continent. You can't have a uniform syllabus from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

Education is for creative living. Definitely not to create rank slaves and cyber coolies to serve
alien banias within and without.

Our educational system only can produce a Vice Chancellor [Anna University] who has the audacity
to defend the donation collected from Dow Chemicals.

You need such education?

Sankaran

Dear All,

I would rather that Education is a Panchayat/Local bodies subject, which it actually is, under the 73rd/74th Amendment of the Constitution of India, but is not (in implementation), because States and the Centre oppose the idea tooth and nail. States reverse any effort aimed at panchayat meaningfully assuming charge of primary education. In the process the educational needs of economically and socially marginalised communities remain un-addressed. Just now we have Centre, State and Local Bodies run schools and they are all at different levels, in my experience the Centre run schools in high priority compared to the State and Local Bodies run schools.

But on the issue of performance linked budget, Pankaj, please explain the brass-tacks of the whole thing. How do you visualise it could happen? What would it involve?

Naaz

Dear Prof Rao,

I beg to disagree with your statement. Our languages are not problems. They are our proud heritage.

Caste is our worst curse. Imposing English and Hindi is equally a curse.

A Polish scholar who extensively toured our countryside decalared, "English is a Cross on Indian children". Definitely not our languages.

Sankara Narayanan

Dear Sir,

I agree in toto with Mr. Sankara Narayanan that caste is our worst curse - a virus for which there is no medicine and prescription. In the morning when you switch on the TV you find great Pandits teaching: feed a dog, give milk to a cat and to a snake, throw oil somewhere, wear this or that color outside and a different inside .... are the ones responsible for such a mess in this country.

You may soon see some articles written by me on this subject in some news papers. We are sick minded people and are breeding sickness of the highest order in the minds of our generations and we call them as future of this country. Today,Bharat Mata is in tears when she is seeing the phenomenon of 'Honor Killings' which is solely driven by casteism and communalisation of the socieities. Who is responsible for all this? A question to be answered by over 1 Billion people of this country.

P.S.NAROTRA

Dear Pankaj,

I am unable to understand the rationale of asking others for suggestions, when you proceed to ignore everything others suggest. However, since you seem to have an idea of investing a tenth of the budget on “learning outcomes” measured by “standardized testing”, it would be useful to understand what sort of activities would you intend those to be- that is apart from the hiring of trained teachers, strengthening teacher training, strengthening decentralization and accountability mechanisms and ensuring availability of learning materials (and overall school infrastructure) in the classroom. All of these have been suggested by multiple posters on this forum and have been rejected by you as inadequate and/or impractical.

However, while you go on to describe your agenda, a quick comment on the use of standardized testing to measure quality. It is arguably the most highly opposed policy in the west (googling for costs of high stakes testing gives 120,000 hits in 0.17 seconds). These include, discrimination against schools with minority (read dalit) populations (which would start with lower test scores), discrimination against minority (read dalit and adivasi) pupils who potentially may pull the school result down, promotion of cheating and corruption (to ensure that the result is maintained), pulling precious resources from teaching (which improves performance) to testing (which only measures it), and has negative impact on the child’s morale (having low performance drilled into you every time), impacting the ability of teachers to innovate (since they have to teach for the “test”) and has converted the process of education into merely achieving marketable basic competencies (in contrast to holistic child development). Thing is, apart from all this- it is also questionable if the learning levels are actually improving across the board. Consequently, it would be essential to take the current enthusiasm about “testing”, “outcomes” and other related issues with a pinch of salt learning from the countries where this practice was started first.

Dear Anjela and All,

I do not have a solution to this big problem, I only have a concern which, I think, is shared by large many.

I tried to initiate the discussion to stimulate each other's thinking, and some of us might also act on these thoughts.

Regarding the specific idea of outcome assessment, it is only one systemic way to hold people accountable for their claims, whatever these are. If you have a better way to ensure accountability, which goes beyound unverifiable claims, please do share that with us all. Otherwise, the exercise would just remain empty slogans and claims. It alsoi brings into operation the concern to achieve the goal in a time-bound fashion.

          Macaúbas-BA: Homem é encontrado morto à tiros na região serrana.   
O corpo de um homem identificado como Antônio Macêdo Bonfim, idade não revelada, foi encontrado por populares nesta quinta-feira (29/06), já sem os sinais vitais, na Comunidade de Alagoinhas, região Serrana de Macaúbas-BA, zona rural do município, que fica próximo a Canatiba, onde ele morava. Segundo informações, o corpo foi encontrado com 7 marcas de tiros de arma de fogo. 

A polícia foi comunicada do ocorrido na comunidade e constataram que o homem apresentava perfurações de tiros. Após perícia realizada no local, o corpo de Antônio foi encaminhado por uma funerária de Macaúbas, até o município de Bom Jesus da Lapa para ser necropsiado no IML. De acordo com informações obtidas pelo blog Macaubense Life, ninguém viu ou ouviu nada, até mesmo sabe falar a respeito e muito menos o ator do crime, nem se o falecido tinha desavenças com alguém ou algo parecido.

Saturday afternoon mom bundled me up and we went in the car to Macaulay Point.  Here I am with my 'CHEESE' face on!


Just over the water there is my city of Victoria!


A bit of the setting sun...


I got to be off leash at this park, which is great fun until mom tells me to slow down...


Maybe you should speed up, mom!


What's the point in being off leash if I can't run willy nilly everywhere???


Oh, look!  It's a plane!


sigh... I am slowed down mom!  And no, I won't go chasing after those big dogs again.


Mom totally made it up to me though because we stopped at the magic cheeseburger window on the way home!

          Financial Review - June, 2017   
June was another good month for the portfolio with small gains across the board producing a 2.07 percent increase in net assets.

For the year, the portfolio is up 10.10%. The adjusted change from when I retired in September 2013 is a 17.12% increase. Hong Kong liquidity stands at 28.0 months of estimated outgoings, well down on January's 38.6 months due to new investments + a transfer to New Zealand but ahead of last month's after I sold some investments.

Here are the details:

1. my Hong Kong equities increased. I sold my shares in COSCO Ports (HK:1199) and a very small position in China New Economy Fund (HK:80). I reinvested some of the proceeds in Kowloon Development (HK:34) which offers a higher yield (around 7% on cost) and a significant discount to NAV which may or may not improve once legal uncertainty over a property development project in Macau is resolved. While I booked a profit on COSCO Ports, the company has been a serial underperformer which has failed to meet expectations either in terms of growth or dividend levels. The Fund was ditched at a small loss after it appeared in David Webb's list of "50 stocks not to own". This is a lesson in not doing sufficient due diligence - at the time I invested, NAV was above HK$0.80 and the shares were trading ago around HK$0.24. I did check the values of the listed shares in the fund's portfolio to ensure that their values had not fallen significantly but I did not look into the merits of those shares individually. As it turns out a significant number of the Fund's investments were also on the list and plunged spectacularly wiping out a significant amount of investor value;

2. my AU/NZ equities rose slightly. I purchased additional shares in Automative Holdings (ASX: AHG), believing the market had over-reacted to a slowdown in Australian car sales + potential changes to the way car's are finance in Australia. My expected yield on purchase price is above 6%;

3.my equity ETFs were up slightly (India, Hong Kong and China) in line with the local markets;

4. my position in silver fell;

5. all tenants are paying on time and all properties are let;

6. the AUD and NZD were up against the HKD/USD;

7. my position in bonds remains small but improved this month when I purchased some 1 year notes issued by part of the Hainan Airlines group using a margin facility - this is a carry trade.

8. expenses were low with no travelling and no other non-regular domestic bills incurred;

My HK cash position rose during the month due to sales of HK equities mentioned above. I currently hold 28.0 months of expenses in HKD cash or equivalents (down from 38.6 months on 1 January).

I have revamped my spreadsheets to capture all debt (previously some accounts were entered on a net basis). Total household gearing ((debt+accruals)/assets) is 9.28% of total assets. Property prices are as at 1 January, 2017, so this overstates the gearing ratio.

I would like to make some additional investments but am struggling to find good value in the markets I follow. With expectations of further rises in interest rates muted, I was tempted by the carry trade, and purchased the Hainan Airlines notes using a margin facility.

          BIOGRAFIA DE FERNANDO PESSOA - O MAIS REPRESENTATIVO POETA DO SÉCULO XX   

 

Parabéns Poeta!

 

 

 

 

 

Largo de São Carlos

 

 

Às três horas e vinte minutos da tarde de 13 de Junho de 1888 nascia em Lisboa Fernando Pessoa. O parto ocorreu no quarto andar esquerdo do n.º 4 do Largo de São Carlos, em frente à ópera de Lisboa (Teatro de São Carlos). De famílias da pequena aristocracia, pelos lados paterno e materno, o pai, Joaquim de Seabra Pessoa (38), natural de Lisboa, era funcionário público do Ministério da Justiça e crítico musical do «Diário de Notícias». A mãe, D. Maria Magdalena Pinheiro Nogueira Pessoa (26), era natural dos Açores (mais propriamente, da Ilha Terceira). Viviam com eles a avó Dionísia, doente mental, e duas criadas velhas, Joana e Emília.

É batizado em 21 de Julho na Basílica dos Mártires, ao Chiado. Os padrinhos são a Tia Anica (D. Ana Luísa Pinheiro Nogueira, sua tia materna) e o General Chaby. A razão por trás do nome Fernando Antonio encontra-se relacionada com Santo Antonio: a família reclamava uma ligação genealógica com Fernando de Bulhões, nome de batismo de Santo Antonio, tradicionalmente festejado em Lisboa a 13 de Junho, dia em que Fernando Pessoa nasceu.

As suas infância e adolescência foram marcadas por fatos que o influenciariam posteriormente. Às cinco horas da manhã de 24 de Julho de 1893, o pai morre com 43 anos, vítima de tuberculose. A morte é reportada no Diário de Notícias do dia. Fernando tinha apenas cinco anos. O irmão Jorge viria a falecer no ano seguinte, sem completar um ano. A mãe vê-se obrigada a leiloar parte da mobília e muda-se para uma casa mais modesta, o terceiro andar do n.º 104 da Rua de São Marçal. É também nesse período que surge o primeiro heterônimo de Fernando Pessoa, Chevalier de Pas, fato relatado pelo próprio a Adolfo Casais Monteiro, numa carta de 1935 em que fala extensamente sobre a origem dos heterônimos. Ainda no mesmo ano, escreve o primeiro poema, um verso curto com a infantil epígrafe de À Minha Querida Mamã. Sua mãe casa-se pela segunda vez em 1895 por procuração, na Igreja de São Mamede em Lisboa, com o comandante João Miguel Rosa, cônsul de Portugal em Durban (África do Sul), que havia conhecido um ano antes. Em África, Pessoa viria a demonstrar desde cedo talento para a literatura.

A mãe e o padrasto

 

Em razão do casamento, muda-se com a mãe e um tio-avô, Manuel Gualdino da Cunha, para Durban, onde passa a maior parte da juventude. Viajam no navio Funchal até à Madeira e depois no paquete Inglês Hawarden Castle até ao Cabo da Boa Esperança. Tendo de dividir a atenção da mãe com os filhos do casamento e com o padrasto, Pessoa isola-se, o que lhe propicia momentos de reflexão. Em Durban, estudou na escola Durban High School, uma escola somente para meninos e foi onde recebeu uma educação britânica, que lhe proporciona um profundo contato com a língua inglesa. Os seus primeiros textos e estudos são em inglês. Mantém contato com a literatura inglesa através de autores como Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, John Milton, Lord Byron, John Keats, Percy Shelley, Alfred Tennyson, entre outros. O inglês teve grande destaque na sua vida, trabalhando com o idioma quando, mais tarde, se torna correspondente comercial em Lisboa, além de o utilizar em alguns dos seus textos e traduzir trabalhos de poetas ingleses, como O Corvo e Annabel Lee de Edgar Allan Poe. Com excepção de Mensagem, os únicos livros publicados em vida são os das coletâneas dos seus poemas ingleses: Antinous e 35 Sonnets e English Poems I - II e III, escritos entre 1918 e 1921.
 
 
 
 

Fernando Pessoa aos 6 anos 

Faz o curso primário na escola de freiras irlandesas da West Street, onde recebe a primeira comunhão e percorre em dois anos o equivalente a quatro. Em 1899 ingressa na Durban High School, onde permanecerá durante três anos e será um dos primeiros alunos da turma. No mesmo ano, cria o pseudônimo Alexander Search, através do qual envia cartas a si mesmo. No ano de 1901, é aprovado com distinção no primeiro exame Cape School High Examination e escreve os primeiros poemas em inglês. Na mesma altura, morre sua irmã Madalena Henriqueta, de dois anos. De férias, parte em 1901 com a família para Portugal. No navio em que viajam, o paquete König, vem o corpo da irmã. Em Lisboa, mora com a família em Pedrouços e depois na Avenida de D. Carlos I, n.º 109, 3.º Esquerdo. Na capital portuguesa, nasce João Maria, quarto filho do segundo casamento da mãe de Pessoa. Viaja com o padrasto, a mãe e os irmãos à Ilha Terceira, nos Açores, onde vive a família materna. Deslocam-se também a Tavira para visitar os parentes paternos. Nessa época, escreve o poema "Quando ela passa".
 
Fernando Pessoa permanece em Lisboa, enquanto todos — mãe, padrasto, irmãos e criada Paciência, que viera com eles — regressam a Durban. Volta sozinho para a África no vapor Herzog. Na mesma época, tenta escrever romances em inglês e matricula-se na Commercial School, frequentando o curso noturno enquanto de dia se ocupa com disciplinas humanísticas. Em 1903, candidata-se à Universidade do Cabo da Boa Esperança. Na prova de exame de admissão, não obtém boa classificação, mas tira a melhor nota entre os 899 candidatos no ensaio de estilo inglês. Recebe por isso o Queen Victoria Memorial Prize («Premio Rainha Vitória»). Um ano depois, ingressa novamente na Durban High School, onde frequenta o equivalente a um primeiro ano universitário. Aprofunda a sua cultura, lendo clássicos ingleses e latinos. Escreve poesia e prosa em inglês, surgindo os heterônimos Charles Robert Anon e H. M. F. Lecher. Nasce a sua irmã Maria Clara. Publica no jornal do liceu um ensaio crítico intitulado Macaulay. Por fim, encerra os seus bem sucedidos estudos na África do Sul com o «Intermediate Examination in Arts», na Universidade, obtendo uma boa classificação.
Retratado por João L. Roth
 
Deixando a família em Durban, regressa definitivamente à capital portuguesa, sozinho, em 1905. Passa a viver com a avó Dionísia e as duas tias na Rua da Bela Vista, n.º 17. A mãe e o padrasto regressam também a Lisboa, durante um período de férias de um ano em que Pessoa volta a morar com eles. Continua a produção de poemas em inglês e, em 1906, matricula-se no Curso Superior de Letras (atual Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa), que abandona sem sequer completar o primeiro ano. É nesta época que entra em contato com importantes escritores portugueses. Interessa-se pela obra de Cesário Verde e pelos sermões do Padre Antonio Vieira.
 
Em Agosto de 1907, morre a sua avó Dionísia, deixando-lhe uma pequena herança, com a qual monta uma pequena tipografia, na Rua da Conceição da Glória, 38-4.º, sob o nome de «Empreza Ibis — Typographica e Editora — Officinas a Vapor», que rapidamente faliu. A partir de 1908, dedica-se à tradução de correspondência comercial, uma atividade a que poderíamos dar o nome de "correspondente estrangeiro". Nessa profissão trabalha a vida toda, tendo uma modesta vida pública.
Inicia a sua atividade de ensaísta e crítico literário com o artigo «A Nova Poesia Portuguesa Sociologicamente Considerada», a que se seguiriam «Reincidindo...» e «A Nova Poesia Portuguesa no Seu Aspecto Psicológico» publicados em 1912 pela revista A Águia, órgão da Renascença Portuguesa.
 
Pessoa é internado no dia 29 de Novembro de 1935, no Hospital de São Luís dos Franceses, com diagnóstico de "cólica hepática", provavelmente uma colangite aguda causada por cálculo biliar e associada a cirrose hepática com origem no óbvio excesso de álcool ao longo da sua vida (a título de curiosidade: acredita-se que era muito fiel à aguardente "Águia Real"). Morre no dia 30 de Novembro, com 47 anos de idade. Nos últimos momentos de vida, pede os óculos e clama pelos seus heterônimos. A sua última frase foi escrita no idioma no qual foi educado, o Inglês: «I know not what tomorrow will bring» (Não sei o que o futuro trará).
 Legado
Pode-se dizer que a vida do poeta foi dedicada a criar e que, de tanto criar, criou outras vidas através dos seus heterônimos, o que foi a sua principal característica e motivo de interesse pela sua pessoa, aparentemente muito pacata. Alguns críticos questionam se Pessoa realmente teria transparecido o seu verdadeiro eu ou se tudo não teria passado de um produto, entre tantos, da sua vasta criação. Ao tratar de temas subjetivos e usar a heteronímia, torna-se enigmático ao extremo. Este fato é o que move grande parte das buscas para estudar a sua obra. O poeta e crítico brasileiro Frederico Barbosa declara que Fernando Pessoa foi "o enigma em pessoa". Escreveu sempre, desde o primeiro poema aos sete anos, até ao leito de morte. Importava-se com a intelectualidade do homem, e pode-se dizer que a sua vida foi uma constante divulgação da língua portuguesa: nas próprias palavras do heterônimo Bernardo Soares, "a minha pátria é a língua portuguesa". O mesmo empenho é patente no seguinte poema:
 
Tenho o dever de me fechar em casa no meu espírito e trabalhar
quanto possa e em tudo quanto possa, para o progresso da
civilização e o alargamento da consciência da humanidade

Analogamente a Pompeu, que disse que "navegar é preciso; viver não é preciso", Pessoa diz, no poema Navegar é Preciso, que "viver não é necessário; o que é necessário é criar". Outra interpretação comum deste poema diz respeito ao fato de a navegação ter resultado de uma atitude racionalista do mundo ocidental: a navegação exigiria uma precisão que a vida poderia dispensar.
O poeta mexicano Octavio Paz, laureado com o Nobel de Literatura, diz que "os poetas não têm biografia. A sua obra é a sua biografia" e que, no caso de Fernando Pessoa, "nada na sua vida é surpreendente — nada, exceto os seus poemas". No livro The Western Canon, o crítico literário estadunidense Harold Bloom considerou-o o mais representativo poeta do século XX, ao lado do chileno Pablo Neruda.
Na comemoração do centenário do nascimento de Pessoa, em 1988, o seu corpo foi trasladado para o Mosteiro dos Jerônimos, confirmando o reconhecimento que não teve em vida.
Último local de residência do poeta.
 
Fernando Pessoa possuía ligações ao ocultismo e ao misticismo, com destaque para a Maçonaria e a Rosa-Cruz (embora não se conheça qualquer filiação concreta em Loja ou Fraternidade dessas escolas de pensamento), havendo inclusive defendido publicamente as organizações iniciáticas, no Diário de Lisboa de 4 de fevereiro de 1935, contra ataques por parte da ditadura do Estado Novo. O seu poema hermético mais conhecido e apreciado entre os estudantes de esoterismo intitula-se "No Túmulo de Christian Rosenkreutz". Tinha o hábito de fazer consultas astrológicas para si mesmo (de acordo com a sua certidão de nascimento, nasceu às 15h20, tinha ascendente Escorpião e o Sol em Gémeos). Realizou mais de mil horóscopos.
 
Apreciava também o trabalho do famoso ocultista Aleister Crowley, tendo inclusive traduzido o poema Hino a Pã. Certa vez, lendo uma publicação inglesa de Crowley, encontrou erros no horóscopo e escreveu-lhe para o corrigir, pois era conhecedor e praticante de astrologia. Os seus conhecimentos impressionaram Crowley e, como este gostava de viagens, veio a Portugal conhecer o poeta. Acompanhou-o a maga alemã Miss Jaeger, que passou a escrever cartas a Fernando, assinadas com um pseudônimo ocultista. O encontro não foi muito amigável, dados os graves desequilíbrios psíquico e espiritual de que Crowley sofria (apesar disso, ainda ensinava).

 

Curiosidades
  • O professor universitário Armindo Freitas-Magalhães criou um inédito programa de literacia emocional, inspirado no verso de Fernando Pessoa "Se às Vezes as Flores Sorriem" (2009).
 
  • Numa tarde em que José Régio tinha combinado encontrar-se com Pessoa, este apareceu, como de costume, com algumas horas de atraso, declarando ser Álvaro de Campos e pedindo perdão por Pessoa não ter podido comparecer ao encontro.
  •  
  • Fernando Pessoa trabalhava como correspondente comercial, num sistema que hoje denominamos free lancer. Assim, podia trabalhar apenas dois dias por semana, dedicando os demais, exclusivamente, à sua grande paixão: a literatura.
  •  
  • A poetisa, professora e jornalista brasileira Cecília Meireles foi a Portugal em 1934, para proferir conferências na Universidade de Coimbra e na Universidade de Lisboa. Um grande desejo seu era conhecer o poeta, de quem se tinha tornado admiradora. Através de um dos escritórios para os quais Fernando Pessoa trabalhava, conseguiu comunicar com ele e marcar um encontro para o meio-dia, mas esperou inutilmente até às duas da tarde sem que Pessoa desse um ar da sua graça. De regresso ao hotel, Cecília teve a surpresa de encontrar um exemplar do livro Mensagem e um recado do misterioso poeta, justificando que não comparecera porque consultara os astros e, segundo o seu horóscopo, “os dois não eram para se encontrar”. Realmente, não se encontraram nem houve muito mais oportunidades para tal, pois no ano seguinte Fernando Pessoa faleceu.
  •  
  • Pessoa media 1,73 m de altura, de acordo com o seu Bilhete de Identidade.
  •  
  • O assento de óbito de Pessoa indica como causa da morte "bloqueio intestinal".
  •  
  • A Universidade Fernando Pessoa (UFP), com sede no Porto, foi criada em homenagem ao poeta.
  •  
  • Fernando Pessoa é o primeiro português a figurar na Plêiade (Collection Bibliothèque de la Pléiade), prestigiada coleção francesa de grandes nomes da literatura.
  •  
  • Ofélia Queiroz, sua namorada, criou um heterônimo para Fernando Pessoa: Ferdinand Personne. "Ferdinand" é o equivalente a "Fernando" em alguns idiomas e "Personne" significa "ninguém" em francês, residindo a curiosidade deste trocadilho no fato de Fernando, por criar outras personalidades, não ter um eu definido.
  •  
  • Em Os Mal-Amados (2008), Fernando Dacosta relata uma conversa com Agostinho da Silva, que conhecera pessoalmente Fernando Pessoa em Dezembro de 1934. O poeta confidenciara-lhe, acabrunhado, que estava muito arrependido por ter escrito as cartas de amor a Ofélia. "Fizera-o movido pela sua irremediável fantasia heteronímica" (pg. 358), para saber como seria o romance entre um vulgar empregado de escritório e uma sua colega de trabalho, carente de afecto. Disfrutou o jogo durante algum tempo, mas, quando se apercebeu da monstruosidade da coisa, pôs fim ao romance fictício, para não fazer sofrer uma mulher real e apaixonada.
  •  
  • O cantor brasileiro Caetano Veloso compôs a canção "Língua", em que existe um trecho inspirado num artigo de Fernando sobre o tema "A minha pátria é a língua portuguesa". O trecho é: A língua é minha Pátria / E eu não tenho Pátria: tenho mátria / Eu quero frátria. Já o compositor Tom Jobim transformou o poema O Tejo é mais Belo em música. Identicamente, Vitor Ramil, cuja música "Noite de São João" tem como letra a poesia de Alberto Caeiro. A cantora Dulce Pontes musicalizou o poema O Infante. O grupo Secos e Molhados musicalizou a poesia "Não, não digas nada". Os portugueses Moonspell cantam no tema Opium um trecho da obra Opiário de Álvaro de Campos. O cantor Renato Braz traz no seu CD "Outro Quilombo" duas poesias musicadas: "Segue o teu destino", de Ricardo Reis, e "Na ribeira deste rio", de Fernando Pessoa.

          INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW   
International trade law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries; However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right. This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments has become part of the world trade, as members of the "World Trade Organization" (WTO). Whereas "International Commercial Law" deals with transactions between companies and individuals. Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world;(Such as the University of Allameh Tabatabaee in Iran).

International trade law should be distinguished from the broader field of international economic law. The latter could be said to encompass not only WTO law, but also law governing the international monetary system and currency regulation, as well as the law of international development.

The body of rules for transnational trade in the 21st century derives from medieval commercial laws called the lex mercatoria and lex maritima — respectively, "the law for merchants on land" and "the law for merchants on sea." Modern trade law (extending beyond bilateral treaties) began shortly after the Second World War, with the negotiation of a multilateral treaty to deal with trade in goods: the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).

International trade law is based on theories of economic liberalism developed in Europe and later the United States from the 18th century onwards.
In 1995, the World Trade Organization, a formal international organization to regulate trade, was established. It is the most important development in the history of international trade law.

The purposes and structure of the organization is governed by the Agreement Establishing The World Trade Organization, also known as the "Marrakesh Agreement". It does not specify the actual rules that govern international trade in specific areas. These are found in separate treaties, annexed to the Marrakesh Agreement.
Since there are no international governing judges (2004) the means of dispute resolution is determined by jurisdiction. Each individual country hears cases that are brought before them. Governments choose to be party to a dispute. And private citizens determine jurisdiction by the Forum Clause in their contract.

Besides forum, another factor in international disputes is the rate of exchange. With currency fluctuation ascending and descending over years, a lack of Commerce Clause can jeopardize trade between parties when one party becomes unjustly enriched through natural market fluctuations. By listing the rate of exchange expected over the contract life, parties can provide for changes in the market through reassessment of contract or division of exchange rate fluctuations.

No European Union (EU) member state has ever chosen to withdraw from the European Union, though some dependent territories or semi-autonomous areas have left. Of these, only Greenland has explicitly voted to leave, departing from the EU's predecessor, the European Economic Community, in 1985. The only member state to hold a national referendum on withdrawal was the United Kingdom in 1975, when 67.2% of those voting voted to remain in the Community.

Before the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force on 1 December 2009 no provision in the Treaties or Law of the European Union outlined the ability of a state to voluntarily withdraw from the EU. The European Constitution did propose such a provision and, after the failure to ratify the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, that provision was then included in the Lisbon Treaty.

The Treaty introduces an exit clause for members who wish to withdraw from the Union. Under Article 50, a Member State would notify the European Council of its intention to secede from the Union and a withdrawal agreement would be negotiated between the Union and that State. The Treaties would cease to be applicable to that State from the date of the agreement or, failing that, within two years of the notification unless the State and the Council both agree to extend this period. The agreement is concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council and shall set out the arrangements for withdrawal, including a framework for the State's future relationship with the Union. The agreement is to be approved by the Council, acting by qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament. A former Member State seeking to rejoin the European Union would be subject to the same conditions as any other applicant country.

Article 311a, introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon allows the status of French, Dutch and Danish overseas territories to be changed more easily, by no longer requiring a full treaty revision. Instead, the European Council may, on the initiative of the member state concerned, change the status of an overseas country or territory (OCT) to an outermost region (OMR) or vice versa.

Greenland is the only territory to have chosen to leave the EU or its predecessors without also seceding from a member state. It initially voted against joining the EEC when Denmark joined in 1973, but because Denmark as a whole voted to join, Greenland, as a part of Denmark, joined too. When home rule for Greenland began in 1979, it held a new referendum and voted to leave the EEC. After wrangling over fishing rights the territory left the EEC in 1985, but remains subject to the EU treaties through the EU Association of Overseas Countries and Territories. This was permitted by the Greenland Treaty, a special treaty signed in 1984 to allow its withdrawal.

By precedent, then, if a country wanted to withdraw from the EU it probably could, but special treaties and conditions would need to be agreed on. This is because of pre-existing commitments that any member state would have towards the EU and its fellow members.

Some former territories of European Union members have left the EU when they gained independence from their ruling country. The 1962 secession of French Algeria, which was an integral part of France and hence of the then-European Communities, was the only such occasion on which a territory subject to the Treaty of Rome has seceded. Most other territories - Hong Kong and Macau - were not classed as part of the EU and EC laws were not in force in these countries.

As of January 2010, there are no countries positioning themselves to withdraw from the EU, but there are numerous political movements campaigning for withdrawal. Although usually minor parties, in the more eurosceptic states of the EU there are the occasional electoral victories. In the UK, the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) campaigns for British withdrawal, achieving third place in the UK during the 2004 European elections and second place in the 2009 European elections – that time gaining the same number of seats as the governing Labour Party. Polls show that support for withdrawal going from 9% to 55%, depending on the wording of the question. In October 2009 a Daily Mail survey revealed that 58% of those polled wanted a referendum on the United Kingdom's membership of the EU. As of January 2010, the Liberal Democrats are the only major party in the UK parliament advocating a referendum on the EU membership, although they would be supporting a positive vote and presented it as an alternative to one on the Lisbon Treaty.
          Los precandidatos al Senado provincial por la Primera   
Si bien la mayor atención de las próximas legislativas estará centrada en lo que ocurra con los cargos para el Congreso Nacional y su posible proyección para la elección ejecutiva de 2019, este año la legislatura provincial tendrá modificaciones importantes que podrían repercutir positiva o negativamente en la gobernabilidad de la segunda parte del mandato de María Eugenia Vidal.

En total se renovarán 23 bancas del Senado y 46 de la Cámara Baja. En el caso específico de la Primera Sección Electoral no se elegirán diputados provinciales pero sí senadores.

Aunque en estos dos primeros años de gestión, la gobernadora logró acuerdos que le permitieron llevar adelante leyes y políticas, no le vendría mal llevarse una buena parte de esas 8 bancas en juego.

Para ello el elegido para encabezar la lista de Cambiemos fue Gabino Tapia y se nota la injerencia del intendente de Vicente López Jorge Macri en la decisión, ya que se trata de su secretario de Legal y Técnica en el municipio. En segundo lugar, está Daniela Reich, pareja del intendente de Tres de Febrero Diego Valenzuela. El actual presidente de bloque oficialista en el Senado bonaerense y hombre de Escobar Roberto Costa va tercero. Lo siguen Aldana Ahumada de Merlo y funcionaria del ministerio de Infraestructura bonaerense. El radicalismo aparece en el quinto lugar con Emiliano Raparaz, hombre del vicegobernador y vecino de San Fernando Daniel Salvador.

Por el lado opositor, el kirchnerista Unidad Ciudadana va con Gustavo Soos a la cabeza. Es un hombre de confianza del intendente de Merlo Gustavo Menéndez, actual secretario de Gobierno. La diputada nacional y presidente del PJ San Isidro Teresa García va en segundo lugar por expreso pedido de la ex presidenta y precandidata a senadora nacional Cristina Fernandez. El ex candidato a intendente de Malvinas Argentinas Luis Vivona va en el tercer lugar.

En tanto 1País, el espacio conformado entre el Frente Renovador y el GEN, va con caras conocidas de la Legislatura: el sanisidrense Sebastián Galmarini y la tigrense Micaela Ferraro. Ambos buscarán renovar sus bancas. En tercer lugar aparece Juan Carlos Juárez, dirigente del partido de Margarita Stolbizer y ex diputado provincial, y lo sigue María Ehcosor de Acuña, atual diputada nacional y esposa del ex intendente de Hurlingham Luis Acuña.

En el Frente Justicialista habrá interna. El lado randazzista irá con Fernando Moreira en el primer lugar. Nuevamente se destaca la injerencia de un intendente, en este caso el de San Martín Gabriel Katopodis. Lo sigue la sanfernandina Soledad Estanciero, hija del ex senador provincial Juan Estanciero. La otra lista será la del intendente de José C. Paz Mario Ishii quien a último momento desistió de competir por la senaduría nacional.

Por el Frente de Izquierda de los Trabajadores (FIT) va Gabriela Lucía Macauda del PTS y secretaria adjunta de Suteba Tigre, Ernesto Daniel Sierra (PO) y Paola Soledad Rodríguez Mariani (IS).

Finalmente, la Izquierda al Frente presenta a Jorge Ayala, obrero de Fate y referente de la Lista Marrón en el gremio del neumático (SUTNA) y junto a Valeria Bibiano. (InfoBAN).

          RN chega a marca de 1.200 homicídios   


A diferença do número de mortos é de 22,8% em relação ao mesmo período em 2016

O número de assassinatos no Estado do Rio Grande do Norte chegou a marca de 1200 casos nos primeiros 180 dias do ano de 2017. A diferença desse mesmo registro em relação ao mesmo período do ano passado é de 22,8%. Os dados são do OBVIO (Observatório da Violência Letal Intencional no RN).
Segundo as pesquisas apresentadas na manhã desta sexta-feira (30), A cidade de Natal se destaca mais uma vez como palco da maioria das mortes violentas com 307 homicídios em seis meses, já em 2016 foram 297. Bairros como Nossa Senhora da Apresentação, Planalto e Mãe Luiza lideram o ranking.
Ainda de acordo com os dados do OBVIO as cidades de Mossoró, Parnamirim e São Gonçalo do Amarante somam juntas 258 crimes letais intencionais, porém os registros destacam o município de Ceará-Mirim que termina o primeiro semestre com um índice de violência nunca visto na região com 79 casos contra 45 no ano passado.
Em conversa com o PortalBO a secretária de Segurança Pública, Sheila Freitas disse que anunciará na semana que vem uma redução de assassinatos em boa parte dos municípios do Estado no mês de junho. "Sabemos que os números são preocupantes, mas nossa política de segurança vem apresentando resultados positivos, não pode ser do dia para a noite, mas estamos trabalhando muito", informou

          Homem morto a tiros na zona rural de Mossoró   



Mais uma morte violenta foi registrada no final da noite de quinta-feira, 29 de junho, no município de Mossoró no Rio Grande do Norte.
José Roberto Dias de Araújo, “Boró” de 34 anos de idade, foi morto com disparos de arma de fogo e pedradas, dentro de casa no Sitio Riacho Grande, zona rural de Mossoró.
Os criminosos invadiram o quartinho, onde “Boró” dormia, na casa da mãe dele e o mataram, com a utilização de uma pedra e pelo menos disparos de duas armas de fogo.
A equipe de perícia criminal encontrou, balins “chumbo” e fragmentos de munições de outra arma de fogo e uma pedra grande ao lado do corpo.
Segundo o perito Jader Viana, além dos tiros os criminosos usaram também a pedra.
Segundo informações, os elementos chegaram pela frente da casa. Enquanto uns tentavam quebrar a janela que dar para a rua, outros pularam o muro pela parte de trás da casa e quebraram a porta de madeira dos fundos do quartinho.
Boró já cumpriu pena por roubo e assalto, mas segundo familiares ele estava em liberdade. A polícia recebeu informações que os elementos estavam em pelo menos duas motocicletas grandes e teria fugido em direção a cidade de Mossoró.
Depois dos procedimentos realizados pelas equipes da Delegacia de Plantão e do Itep, o corpo de José Roberto Dias de Araújo foi removido e será necropsiado na base da Unidade Regional do Itep em Mossoró.

1. OVERVIEW OF CHINA
China, with a population of over 1.3 billion and a land area of 9.6 million km2 , has a potential market for business development. China’s GDP increases by double digits in the past few years, since the strong economic development enhanced by foreign demand and domestic consumption. Now more and more investors rush to China for business setup and market share in form of WFOE or joint venture, owing to China’s market, labor and policy advantages.

2. THE CONCEPT OF WFOE
WFOE stands for wholly foreign owned enterprise, which is a Limited liability company wholly owned by the foreign investor(s). WFOE means the foreign investors(including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) established the enterprise within Chinese territory, in accordance with 《PRC Wholly Foreign founded Enterprise Law》, with capital provided solely by the foreign investor. The foreign investors refer to the foreign enterprise, individual or partner. (Including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).
In China, WFOE were originally conceived for encouraged manufacturing activities that were either export orientated or introduced advanced technology. However, with China's entry into the WTO, these conditions were gradually abolished and the WFOE is increasingly being used for service providers such as a variety of consulting and management services, software development and trading as well.

5. What kind of BUSINESS SCOPE you could have, and what you can not do?

6. How much Registration Capital you should have for a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE)?

7. What's the meaning of "Preferential Policy(or Pre-approval Policy)" for WFOE in CHINA?
Most of the preferential policies have been abolished since January 1, 2008, but for some sectors preferential policies still remain there, such as hi-tech or environmental protection sectors.

          Virginia General Assembly To Grab More Guns   

 

Virginia Legislators with the help of communism for the but not for me Governor MacAuliffe, would create a defacto gun registry, making it all the easier for gun grabbing politicians to ride through the state confiscating guns.  The new law SB-377 would require gun dealers and private citizens to keep indefinitely, the consent forms filled out by buyers and sellers, rather than shred them as has been done in the past. 

 

The law as proposed by McAuliffe would require a 90 day period, for which dealers and sellers would be forced to maintain all consent forms, which means they would go in a file cabinet and be forgotten about.  Later down the road, when the SWAT teams sent across the countryside to confiscate guns come riding, they need only raid all the dealers' shops, take their files, and they have the names, addresses, and firearm types each purchaser has. 

The Implication is simple, its registration.  And one doesn't need to look history past about 80 years back to know how gun registration works in favor of tyrants and against citizens.  The SWAT teams in CA and on the East Coast, where registration is already in the laws, are conducting "lightning raids" under cover of darkness, and without knocking, to confiscate the guns of those on an old database(in California for example), that is often plagued with bad information. 

 

It is those lightning raids that are going to cause bloodshed.  When your door is kicked down in the middle of the night, and you are still groggy, having been awakened by noise, you go for your firearms.  If you don't know its the cops, you may be in for a gunfight.  They often don't properly announce themselves when they make lightning raids, and as a law abiding citizen, you would have no reason to expect one to happen at your house.  So, what do you do?  You draw down on them and that won't end well.



The gist of this is simple, your rights are being taken away, slowly but surely, by a government that has bad things in mind.  They will disarm you if given half the chance.  Retired Judge Stevens recently said the Second Amendment pertains only to state government militias.  He suggests the constitution be amended with a pen-stroke to erase your Second Amendment rights.  It is time to take action.  See the NRA-ILA site to find out how to write your representatives in State and Federal Government, or watch your rights disappear completely!

          Fahami taktik jenayah siber, elak jadi mangsa   

ISMA WEB
 


KOTA KINABALU – “Seorang ibu menyerahkan simpanannya yang berjumlah enam angka kepada lelaki yang dikenali hanya melalui Internet. Puas anak-anaknya menasihatkan jangan berikan wang itu tetapi tidak diendahkan.

Perkara ini dikongsi seorang pegawai kanan polis kepada orang ramai yang hadir di forum bertajuk ‘Challenges Facing The Future Cyberspace’ yang diadakan di Universiti Malaysia Sabah sempena Borneo Cyber Security Challenge 2017 pada April lepas.

Orang ramai yang hadir terperanjat dan sukar untuk mempercayai seseorang itu boleh dengan mudah tertipu seperti yang diceritakan Penolong Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersil (JSJK), ACP Ahmad Nordin Ismail di majlis berkenaan.

Hakikatnya, meskipun forum demi forum dianjurkan untuk mewujudkan kesedaran orang ramai mengenai pelbagai risiko siber serta jumlah penipuan yang didedahkan oleh pihak polis dan media, saban hari masih ramai yang menjadi mangsa kepada orang yang hanya dikenali melalui Internet.

JENAYAH LAMA DIPERMUDAHKAN TEKNOLOGI

Ahmad Nordin menegaskan bahawa kejadian jenayah melibatkan internet sebenarnya adalah jenayah yang wujud sekian lama cuma kali ini dilakukan dengan pendekatan baru. Secara prinsip, apa yang salah di dunia sebenar juga satu kesalahan di dunia maya.

Jika diperhatikan dengan teliti, jenis jenayah yang dilakukan melalui dunia maya sebenarnya sama dengan apa yang berlaku di dunia nyata iaitu seperti menipu, mencuri, malah rogol dan bunuh. Penjenayah hanya melakukan sedikit perubahan mungkin dalam cara bekerja sesuai dengan kemajuan teknologi hari ini untuk mencari mangsa.

Kerja mereka menjadi lebih mudah kerana tidak perlu lagi memperkenalkan diri sebenar kerana boleh menyamar di sebalik identiti rekaan di dunia maya. Justeru, penipuan dalam talian yang melibatkan cinta, e-dagang dan kewangan, pornografi, berita palsu dan pelanggaran hak cipta tersebar luas.

Laman media sosial seperti Facebook, Instagram dan Bigo Live serta aplikasi sembang maya seperti Whatsapp, WeChat dan Telegram menyediakan akses tanpa had kepada mereka yang berpotensi menjadi mangsa. Selalunya wanita mudah menjadi mangsa kepada pelbagai penipuan, kasanova dan pemangsa seksual.

PENIPUAN MERUGIKAN MANGSA

Walaupun setelah forum berkenaan dianjurkan pada April lepas, tidak ada tanda jumlah jenayah siber berkurangan. Nyata sekali ramai rakyat Malaysia masih bersikap tidak ambil tahu dan tidak peduli.

Jumlah kes dan kerugian terus meningkat saban tahun. Pada 2014, terdapat 1,026 kes penipuan ‘African Love Scam’ dilaporkan yang melibatkan kerugian berjumlah RM52.87 juta manakala pada 2016 bilangan itu meningkat kepada 2,489 kes dengan kerugian sebanyak RM98.9 juta. Dalam kesemua kes, mangsa tidak pernah bertemu secara langsung dengan kenalan yang mereka anggap ‘kekasih’ namun mudah menyerahkan wang mereka.

Penjenayah siber terlebih dahulu mengkaji pelbagai aspek yang berkaitan. Mereka juga mengenal pasti semua kelemahan sama ada dalam sistem mahupun bakal mangsa, sebelum mereka mengorak langkah.

“Sindiket itu menjadikan Malaysia sebagai pusat operasi antarabangsa mereka kerana mereka mendapati Malaysia sebagai lokasi yang kondusif untuk aktiviti mereka terutamanya berdasarkan fakta bahawa Malaysia mempunyai sistem telekomunikasi yang baik dan sambungan Internet yang memudahkan operasi sindiket,” jelas Ahmad Nordin.

Salah satu sindiket penipuan antarabangsa yang menjadikan Malaysia sebagai pusat operasi adalah ialah ‘Macau Scam’ yang mula dikesan pada 2012 yang beroperasi di Sabah. Mangsa penipuan ini dikatakan kerugian sebanyak 10 bilion Renmibi (RM6 bilion).

Sindiket penipuan itu muncul semula pada Mei dan polis menumpaskan operasi mereka di Shah Alam, Selangor. Seramai 20 warga China dan lima warga Taiwan ditahan kerana menipu mangsa.

Menggunakan Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), anggota sindiket itu menyamar sebagai pegawai polis atau pegawai Bank Negara yang mendakwa mangsa terlibat dalam transaksi haram dan perlu membayar sejumlah wang bagi mengelakkan sebarang tindakan.

RAKYAT MALAYSIA MANGSA MUDAH

Rakyat Malaysia mudah menjadi mangsa penjenayah siber terutamanya memandangkan hakikat bahawa negara ini mempunyai bilangan pengguna internet yang tinggi.

Menurut Ketua Jabatan Pelaksanaan Jangkauan MCMC, K Juslly Elis, jumlah pengguna internet di Malaysia sudah menjangkau 24.1 juta, iaitu kira-kira dua per tiga penduduk negara yang seramai 31.7 juta orang.

Bagi kebanyakan rakyat Malaysia, Internet amat ‘rapat’di hati mereka, dan Juslly berkata, sebanyak 97 peratus pengguna media sosial di Malaysia memiliki akaun Facebook dengan 18 juta pengguna aktif media sosial setiap hari.

Secara purata pengguna, masing-masing memiliki empat akaun media sosial.

Menyentuh aspek penggunaan pula, 90.7 peratus daripada mereka menggunakan telefon pintar dengan penggunaan Internet terutamanya untuk tujuan komunikasi teks (92.7 peratus), carian maklumat(90.1 peratus) dan media sosial(80 peratus).

SIKAP PENGGUNA UNDANG RISIKO

“Bagaimanapun, sekiranya berlaku jenayah siber, ianya kerana kesalahan pengguna Internet itu. Sikap mereka sebenarnya yang mengundang risiko kerana sewenang-wenangnya berkongsi maklumat sensitif seperti lokasi, nombor telefon, nombor kad pengenalan dan maklumat peribadi lain menjadikan mereka sasaran mudah penjenayah siber.

Oleh itu, kemahiran kawal selia kendiri oleh netizens adalah penting di mana mereka perlu memahami dan mematuhi undang-undang serta etika yang berkaitan dengan penggunaan teknologi Internet.

Ahmad Nordin memberi jaminan bahawa polis akan terus bekerjasama dengan pelbagai pihak dan agensi dalam siasatan jenayah siber dan memberi kesedaran awam mengenai bahaya jenayah siber.

Negara ini bersedia untuk menghadapi cabaran-cabaran alam siber, termasuk cubaan merekrut pengganas menggunakan Internet.

“Jangan sekali-kali melayan mesej atau sms daripada pihak yang tidak dikenali. Mereka mendahului kita setiap kali seseorang klik untuk membaca pesanan mereka. Berhati-hati sebelum mendedahkan nombor telefon kepada sesiapa juga kerana separuh daripada maklumat peribadi anda terdapat di dalamnya. Ingat, serigala sentiasa ada di sekeliling kita,” kata Ahmad Nordin.  Bernama

          April 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
As market continue it's momentum to the upside, return YTD was inching towards 3.42%, while XIRR YTD was 11.51% and XIRR since inception was 7.31% as of end April 2017. A significant fresh fund injection of $36,000 was made in April.

April was also a month with bumper dividends. Total dividends and interests received were $880,86 from:
  • AUD 116.54 from Telstra Corporation Limited
  • GBP 42.63 from BP PLC
  • HKD 1,288.31 from HSBC Holdings Plc
  • HKD 229.80 from Vanguard FTSE AS
  • EUR 73.39 from Daimler AG
  • HKD 990.40 from PCCW
  • CNY 144.68 from CSOP China Ultra Short Term Bond ETF
  • $94.40 from M1
Portolio allocation was 45.58% equities and 54.52% bonds and cash.

Chow Tai Fook was the top performer from total return perspective. It gapped-up on 13 April and broke out it's HKD 8.00 resistance, as the multiyear sales decline had finally shown sign of turn around. Retail sales in mainland China increased 16%, with same-strore sales rising 12% during the three months that ended March 31. Overall retail sales in Hong Kong and Macau grew 1%, and same-store sales rose 4% — the first quarterly increase in three years in Hong Kong and Macau. I sat on +88.95% return from capital appreciation and dividends received. Should I sell and take profit or stand still on the soon-to-be double bagger in my portfolio?

Out of all the places for punters to visit, none are more alluring than Macau. This bustling city is more than Asia’s gambling hub, it showcases a rare unity of Eastern & Western cultures. Once a key trade port for the Portuguese, Macau was given back to China in 1999. From there it opened its […]
          CHP investigates local case of Japanese encephalitis   
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health is investigating this evening (June 30) a local case of Japanese encephalitis (JE) and again urged the public to avoid going to rural areas from dusk till dawn when the vector which breeds in large water bodies such as rice paddies is most active.

     The male patient, aged 38 with good past health, has developed fever and headache since June 18 and was admitted to Tuen Mun Hospital for management on June 28. The clinical diagnosis was encephalitis and he has been in stable condition.

     His cerebrospinal fluid and blood samples tested positive for immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies against JE upon laboratory testing.

     Initial enquiries revealed that the patient had no travel history in the incubation period. He lives in Tin Shui (I) Estate, Tin Shui Wai. His home contacts have remained asymptomatic and been put under medical surveillance.

     "We are working closely with the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) to assess and prevent any possible spread of infection. The FEHD and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department have been informed for vector investigations, surveillance and control. Epidemiological investigations are ongoing," a spokesman for the CHP said.

     Officers of the CHP will conduct site visit and field investigations by questionnaire surveys at the patient's residence for active case finding and arranging blood tests. A health talk was held tonight jointly with the FEHD to deliver health advice to residents and the public.

     Persons who have been to the vicinity of Tin Shui Estate with JE symptoms should call the CHP's hotline (2125 1122) operating from 9am to 6pm this weekend for laboratory investigation or referral as appropriate.

     "We have informed the Guangdong and Macau health authorities of the case and will issue letters to doctors and hospitals to alert them to the latest situation," the spokesman added.

     This is the second JE case recorded in 2017 and the first case reported on June 9 has been classified as a locally-acquired infection. Two (imported) and two (one local, one unclassified) cases were recorded in 2016 and 2015 respectively.

     JE is a mosquito-borne disease and JE virus is transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes. The principal vector is called Culex tritaeniorhynchus. JE mainly occurs in rural and agricultural areas of Asia and the Western Pacific. The infected mosquito transmits JE virus to humans and animals during biting. The mosquitoes breed where there is abundant water such as rice paddies and become infected by feeding on pigs and wild birds infected with JE virus. Symptoms usually start at around four to 14 days after being infected.

     To prevent JE, the public should take general measures to prevent mosquito bites and avoid going to rural areas from dusk till dawn when the mosquitoes are most active. Travellers to endemic areas should take special note.

     The public should:

     1. Wear loose, light-coloured, long-sleeved tops and trousers, and use DEET-containing insect repellent on exposed parts of the body and clothing;

     2. Take additional preventive measures in outdoor activities:
  • Avoid using fragrant cosmetics or skin care products;
  • Re-apply insect repellents according to instructions;

     3. Special notes during travel:
  • If going to affected areas, arrange consultation with a doctor at least six weeks before travel, and have extra preventive measures to avoid mosquito bite;
  • During travel in endemic rural areas, carry a portable bed net and apply permethrin (an insecticide) on it. Permethrin should not be applied to skin. Seek medical attention promptly if feeling unwell; and
  • Travellers feeling unwell, such as fever, should seek medical advice promptly, and provide travel details to doctor.

     The public may visit the CHP's JE page, tips for using insect repellents, Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, Travel Health Service and the FEHD's Guidebook on Control and Prevention of Mosquito Breeding for more information.

          Macau billionaire's goals at issue as U.N. bribery trial starts   

Macau billionaire's goals at issue as U.N. bribery trial startsA billionaire real estate developer from Macau spent years corrupting United Nations officials so they would support his effort to build a huge conference center in the gambling destination, a U.S. prosecutor said on Thursday at the start of Ng Lap Seng's bribery trial. Ng, 69, who has pleaded not guilty, has been accused of funneling roughly $2 million of suspect payments to John Ashe, a former General Assembly president and ambassador from Antigua and Barbuda, and Francis Lorenzo, a former deputy U.N. ambassador from the Dominican Republic. Prosecutors said Ng hoped his bribes would attract support for his Sun Kian Ip Group to build a multibillion-dollar center that would host an annual gala for the U.N. Office for South-South Cooperation, which works with developing countries.

Arista duduk termangu di sebuah meja pojok di suatu café. Sesekali dia melirik pocket watch di saku jaketnya. Lelaki yang ditunggunya belum juga datang. Padahal dia berjanji akan datang pukul 1.00 pm untuk makan siang. Dan sekarang sudah tiga puluh menit berlalu belum juga tampak batang hidungnya.
Arista melepas syal toska yang melilit lehernya. Musim dingin sudah hampir berakhir. Udara tidak terasa terlalu dingin. Tapi dia tidak berminat untuk mengganti cappuccino hangat di depannya dengan minuman dingin. Arista kembali melihat jam saku yang ia bawa. 1.41 pm. Key oppa belum juga datang. Baru saja ia meletakkan kembali jam itu di sakunya, bel di pintu café berdenting. Arista menoleh. Lelaki yang ditunggunya berjalan memasuki café dengan tergesa.

***
Key melonjak begitu sadar jam menunjukkan pukul satu lebih lima menit. Dia berjanji akan menemani Arista makan siang lima menit lagi dan latihan baru saja selesai. Tanpa beristirahat terlebih dahulu Key memakai jaket dan mengambil tasnya dengan kasar. Dia tak akan sampai tepat waktu.
Hyung, kenapa terburu – buru? Mau ke mana?” tanya Taemin heran melihat K
. Ia baru saja duduk setelah mengambil minum di ujung ruangan.
“Aku ada janji dengan seseorang. Dia pasti sudah menungguku.” Key menjawab setengah berteriak sambil berjalan tergesa – gesa keluar ruang latihan. Keempat rekannya hanya melihatnya dengan heran.

Key melirik jam tangannya lagi begitu sampai di depan café. 1.42 pm. Dilihatnya perempuan yang ia cari sedang duduk di salah satu meja di dalam. Tangannya tampak sedang memasukkan sesuatu ke dalam saku. Segera Key masuk dan menghampiri perempuan itu.
“Rista-a… Sorry… Aku baru saja selesai latihan,” ujar Key penuh perasaan bersalah sambil dudk di depan Arista . Dia melirik cappuccino di depannya sudah tinggal separuh cangkir. Berarti perempuan itu sudah lama di sini.
Nevermind, oppa. Aku tahu kau pasti sedang sibuk. Konser SHINee kurang beberapa hari lagi kan,” jawab Arista tersenyum. Key ikut tersenyum melihatnya. Ia tak pernah bisa menahan diri untuk ikut tersenyum setiap Arista tersenyum. Mata perempuan itu selalu bersinar seiring senyumnya yang mengembang. Mata khas Asia Tenggara yang ia sukai. Begitu pula wajah cantik itu. Wajah yang selalu menghiasi mimpinya.
“Ah… Mianhae… Tetap saja aku merasa bersalah. Kau belum memesan makanan? Jangan bilang kau menungguku. Aku tahu kau tak bisa telat makan atau lambungmu akan rewel lagi. Pelayan!” Key memanggil pelayan setelah mengomel panjang lebar. Arista hanya tertawa ringan.

***

Sudah dua tahun sejak Key mengenal Arista. Sedangkan Arista sendiri sudah empat tahun mengenal Key, sejak Key pertama kali debut bersama grupnya, SHINee. Arista adalah SHINee World, fans SHINee, sejak SHINee pertama kali dikenalkan oleh SM Entertainment. SHINee pula yang mendorongnya mengikuti audisi SM dua tahun lalu yang akhirnya membawanya menjadi traineeSM Entertainment hingga hari ini. Dibantu temannya sesama SHINee World dari Seoul, Arista terbang dari Indonesia ke negeri gingseng itu untuk audisi.
Meski kemampuan bernyanyi dan menari Arista termasuk hebat, dia tak juga debut. Bahasalah yang menjadi kendala utamanya. Hingga saat ini pun Arista masih sering salah dalam pengucapan bahasa Koreanya meskipun dia sudah bisa berkomunikasi dengan sesama trainee maupun sunbae – sunbaenya di SM dengan lancar.
Tak seperti saat Arista pertama kali masuk ke agensi itu. Perkenalan pun dia menggunakan bahasa Inggris. Untungnya saat di Indonesia Arista bersekolah di sekolah internasional sehingga bahasa Inggrisnya bisa dibilang excellent. Hal itu pula yang membuatnya dekat dengan Key. Tak banyak yang bisa diajaknya berbicara di SM. Key dekat dengannya karena mereka bisa mengobrol dengan bahasa Inggris dengan mudah. Pengalaman Key saat di Amerika beberapa tahun sebelumnya menjadi sangat berguna. Selain dengan Key, Arista dekat dengan Tiffany dari SNSD. Bahasa jugalah yang membuat mereka dekat.
Sebenarnya Arista ingin sekali dekat dengan Taemin, biasnya di SHINee. Tapi sulit. Taemin tidak begitu lancar berbahasa Inggris sehingga mereka jarang sekali mengobrol bersama. Meskipun begitu Arista tetap mengidolakan Taemin. Dia suka cara Taemin menari dan menyanyi. Arista bisa tertegun dan terpesona saat melihat tayangan Taemin memainkan piano di salah satu acara musik. Menurutnya Taemin tetap yang terbaik.

***
Key bersenandung riang saat memasuki dorm malam itu. Sepanjang sore ia berjalan – jalan dengan Arista. Meskipun Key harus menutup wajahnya dengan syal dia tetap senang. Sore yang menyenangkan. Makan siang, berjalan – jalan di taman hingga matahari terbenam. Ah sungguh hari yang indah, pikirnya.
“Hya… Kibum-a, kenapa kau bernyanyi – nyanyi seperti orang gila begitu. Menyeramkan,” tegur Jonghyun yang akhirnya terpaksa menemani Key berdansa mengiringi nyanyian riangnya.
“Aku gembira, Hyung. Gembira sekali,” jawab Key singkat. Dia berjalan ke dapur tetap sambil menari, menghampiri Onew yang sedang membuka lemari es. “Belum ada yang makan? Baiklah aku akan masak untuk kalian,” lanjutnya masih dengan nada gembira.
Key segera memasak makan malam. Senandung lagu tak lepas dari bibirnya. Sementara Onew hanya berpandangan dengan Jonghyun dan duduk di kursi di dekat Taemin dan Minho yang sedang bermain play station. Onew memilih untuk melihat dan sesekali mengomentari Taemin dan Minho yang memainkan game sepak bola daripada kebingungan melihat Key.
“Aku mandi dulu. Pasti enak setelah mandi langsung makan,” teriak Jonghyun sambil masuk ke kamar mandi.
Hyung, ada apa dengan Key hyung? Ia terlihat gembira sekali,” tanya Taemin pada Onew tanpa melepas pehatiannya pada layar di depannya.
Molla… Dia tak mengatakannya dari tadi,” jawab Onew singkat. Dia mengambil ponselnya yang dia geletakkan di meja dan menyibukkan diri dengan benda itu.
“GOOLLL!!!” teriak Minho tiba – tiba sambil berdiri. Onew melirik. Minho bersorak dengan wajah penuh kemenangan sementara Taemin terlihat lesu. Onew melirik layar dan melihat skor 3-0 tertera di sana. Pantas saja ekspresi Taemin seperti itu.
“Sudah. Ayo makan dulu. Makan malam sudah siap,” teriak Key dari ruang makan.
“Hmm… Baunya enak sekali. Perutku sudah meminta makanan,” kata Jonghyun yang baru saja kelluar dari kamar mandi. Handuk masih tergantung di kepalanya namun ia langsung saja menuju ruang makan menyusul hyungdan dongsaengnya.
Hyung, kau terlihat gembira sekali. Ada apa?” tanya Minho kepada Key begitu mereka sudah berkumpul di meja makan.
“Karena hari ini sangat indah Minho-ya. Ayo makan dulu. Jangan berbicara selama makan,” jawab Key sambil tersenyum. Tumben sekali dia tersenyum sepanjang malam dan tidak mengomel, batin Minho. Mereka pun makan dalam diam. Hanya terdengar suara piring yang beradu dengan sumpit dan sendok.

***
Key mematikan lampu kamarnya. Sambil tersenyum ia bebaring. Key teringat acara jalan – jalannya dengan Arista tadi sore. Sungguh hari yang indah.
Key sudah tertarik dengan Arista sejak gadis itu bergabung dengan manajemen tempatnya bernaung. Apalagi saat ia tahu Arista tak bisa berbahasa Korea, Key semakin tertarik. Dia senang sekali menjadi satu – satunya lelaki yang dekat dengan Arista.
Dua tahun membuatnya semakin menyukai Arista. Bukan hanya menyukai. Key menyayanginya. Sangat menyayangi Arista. Semua yang ada pada Arista ia suka. Matanya, wajahnya, senyumnya, bahkan saat dia berbicara Key suka. Cara Arista berbicara unik. Key tidak bisa menggambarkannya. Apalagi saat dia berbicara dengan bahasa Korea yang baru dikuasainya akhir – akhir ini. Selama setahun lebih Key harus menjadi penerjemah saat Arista berbicara dalam bahasa Inggris. Tapi Key menyukainya. Dia merasa istimewa.
Key lah satu – satunya tempat Arista mencurahkan keluh kesahnya. Saat dia lelah setelah latihan, saat dia menahan rasa iri saat teman – teman sesama trainee sudah debut, dan saat dia menangis tersedu –sedu di kala merindukan orang tuanya di Indonesia. Sejak masuk ke SM Entertainment Arista sama sekali tak pernah pulang dan dia tak tahu harus sampai kapan dia menahan rindunya.
Saat Key bersama rekan – rekan nya di SM Entertainment tampil di SMTown Live Concert bulan lalu di LA, Key ingin sekali mengajak Arista. Setidaknya mengajaknya berjalan – jalan di waktu luang selama di sana. Tapi apa boleh buat. Mereka tidak bisa mengajak trainee. Jadi Key hanya membelikannya oleh – oleh.
Tidak sekali dua kali Key berniat untuk mengutarakan perasaannya pada Arista. Tapi dia belum berani. Key masih ragu. Ia ragu apakah Arista merasakan hal yang sama dengannya. Key tahu Arista menyukai Taemin dari awal. Dia yakin suka itu hanya rasa kagum. Tapi Key juga tidak bisa memberanikan diri untuk yakin bahwa Arista menyayanginya sebagaimana Key menyayangi Arista.
Key tersenyum lagi ketika teringat wajah Arista. Hingga ia tertidur.

***
Key kebingungan memilih baju hangat di hadapannya. Ulang tahun Arista sebentar lagi. Key sudah berniat membelikannya baju hangat. Key tahu sekali bahwa Arista belum terbiasa dengan udara dingin Korea sampai sekarang. Yang jadi masalah warna apa yang akan dia pilihkan. Pink, warna yang Key suka. Baby blue, warna favorite Arista. Atau kuning, warna kesukaan Taemin yang akhirnya Arista pun suka.
Akhirnya pilihan Key jatuh pada sweater rajutan berwana baby blue polos. Key yakin Arista akan terlihat cantik memakai sweateritu dengan kulit kuning langsatnya dan rambut hitam sepunggungnya. Cepat – cepat Key meminta si penjual membungkus sweateritu. Ia harus bergegas. Ia tak punya waktu untuk menikmati udara Macau saat ini. Pergi membelikan Arista hadiah ini pun ia tak bilang apa pun ke managernya. Sembunyi – sembunyi ia pergi setelah rehearsal. Sepuluh menit lagi dia harus berada di ruang make up untuk mempersiapkan konser nanti malam atau sang manager akan memarahinya.
Ah, dimarahipun tak masalah, pikir Key. Apapun demi Arista akan Key lakukan. Key berniat untuk mengutarakan perasaannya saat ulang tahun Arista nanti. Dan Key berharap Arista bisa menjadi kekasihnya.

***
Arista terhenti di depan sebuah restoran. Sekali lagi ia memeriksa penampilannya sekilas di jendela restoran. Ia tak mau penampilannya buruk di hari ulang tahunnya ini. Key oppapasti sudah menunggunya. Arista segera masuk ke dalam. Dilepaskannya mantel yang ia kenakan. Sang pelayan mengambil mantel itu dan menyimpankannya.
“Sudah melakukan reservasi, Nona?” tanya pelayan itu.
“Kurasa. Atas nama Arista,” jawab Arista singkat. Ah, apakah Key oppa akan melakukan reservasi atas namanya, batin Arista. “Eh, atau mungkin atas nama Kim Kibum,” lanjutnya cepat – cepat.
“Oh… Tuan Kibum. Silakan ikut saya,” ujar pelayan itu seraya membimbingnya ke sebuah ruangan khusus. Sepertinya ruang VIP. Arista sadar Key tidak mungkin makan malam dengannya di tempat terbuka dengan bebas.
“Rista-a, kau sudah datang. Terima kasih, pelayan,” ujar Key begitu melihat Arista memasuki ruangan. Arista duduk di hadapan Key.
Oppa, sudah lama menunggu?” tanya Arista.
“Belum. Mungkin baru lima menit. Sudahlah cepat pesan sesuatu,” jawab Key sambil membuka buku menu. Mau tak mau Arista ikut membuka buku menu. Setelah memesan makanan Key memandang Arista.
Oppa, kenapa kau memandangiku seperti itu?” Arista tersipu menyadari Key memandanginya.
“Ada yang ingin kukatakan padamu…”
“Tunggu. Aku juga ingin menceritakan sesuatu. Taemin oppatadi mengajakku jalan – jalan akhir minggu ini,” sela Arista dengan muka berbinar. Arista tak menyadari perubahan air muka Key.

***
“Taemin oppa tadi mengajakku jalan – jalan akhir minggu ini.” Arista menyela ucapan Key tanpa menyadari perubahan raut wajah Key. Key tertegun. Dia terkejut. Taemin dan Arista. Sejak kapan?
“Taemin mengajakmu jalan – jalan? Kencan? Sejak kapan kalian dekat?” selidik Key. Ia tak bisa menyembunyikan rasa herannya sekaligus perasaan cemburu yang tiba – tiba muncul.
“Kencan? Aku tak tahu apakah itu bisa disebut kencan. Yang jelas aku senang. Sudah beberapa hari aku bertukar pesan dan saling menelepon dengan Taemin oppa. Aku tak pernah punya waktu untuk menceritakan ini padamu, oppa. Kau terlalu sibuk. Dan aku tak ingin menceritakannya di telepon.” Arista bercerita dengan riang. Jadi selama ini mereka sudah dekat, piker Key. Key tak bisa bertanya lebih lanjut karena pelayan sudah mengantarkan makanan mereka.
“Aku menyayangimu, Rista,” kata Key tiba – tiba saat mereka makan dengan suara pelan.
“Aku juga menyayangimu, oppa. Kau adalah oppa terbaikku di sini. Aku sudah menganggapmu seperti oppaku sendiri,” sahut Arista tanpa menangkap maksud asli Key. Key hanya tertunduk kecewa.

***
Key memandangi Arista dari jauh. Arista sedang bercanda dengan teman – temannya sesama trainee saat Taemin mendekatinya dan mengajaknya mengobrol. Tak lama mereka tertawa bersama. Key merasa Arista sudah mendapat keinginannya untuk dekat dengan Taemin, orang yang sangat dikaguminya.
“Oh, I’m really in a brother zone,” bisik Key pelan pada dirinya sendiri. Ramainya ruangan di acara ulang tahun Arista itu terasa sepi bagi Key.

          TPM nafi M'sia henti permit kerja warga Korea Utara   
MALAYSIAKINI


Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi menafikan laporan agensi berita Jepun bahawa Malaysia telah menghentikan pengeluaran permit kerja untuk warga Korea Utara.

Ahmad Zahid, yang juga Menteri Dalam Negeri, berkata tiada sebarang arahan dikeluarkan berhubung perkara itu.

"Berita itu adalah tidak benar dan tiada sebarang arahan dikeluarkan," katanya kepada pemberita pada Majlis Rumah Terbuka Aidilfitri di kediaman rasmi timbalan perdana menteri, Sri Satria, hari ini.

Pada Khamis lepas, sebuah agensi berita Jepun, Kyodo News, melaporkan Malaysia menghentikan pengeluaran permit kerja untuk warganegara Korea Utara, susulan pembunuhan Kim Jong-nam, abang pemimpin negara itu, Kim Jong Un.

          Las 23 películas que mejor han contado lo que es de verdad un amor de verano   

Vacaciones En Roma

Jamás culparé al cine por mis altas expectativas en los diferentes ámbitos de la vida. Le quiero demasiado. Pero si hay algo que el cine nos ha enseñado y estropeado para siempre son los amores de verano, porque nunca, nunca serán como en las películas, o al menos siempre serán menos glamoursos y mucho máss pegajosos (sí, soy una hater del calor).

Por suerte, el cine nos ha enseñado mucho más que la existencia de amores de verano idílicos. Además de amores inesperados y románticos, también nos han enseñado amores musicales, turbios, inapropiados, con forma de thriller y que acabarán fatal, cómicos, adolescentes, incestuosos... Y como no todo es perfecto, os traigo una lista imperfecta de algunas de mis películas favoritas sobre amores de verano ideales para esta época del año.

Así que, si como yo odiáis demasiado el calor como para vivir vuestro propio romance estival y os van más los amores en la nieve y con jerséis de lana, os recomiento algunos títulos para que podáis vivirlos desde el sofá de vuestra casa... con el aire acondicionado a tope.

'Vacaciones en Roma' (1953)

Nunca he estado en Roma y me da miedo ir y que no me pase lo que Audrey Hepburn en 'Vacaciones en Roma' ('Roman Holiday', Wylliam Wyler). Claro que yo no soy una princesa europea agobiada por no poder llevar una vida normal y que se escapa de palacio para conocer Roma y encontrarse a sí misma. Con corte de pelo y borrachera incluída.

Aún así, esta delicia de película de final algo amargo de ese amor imposible entre la princesa Anna y el periodista Joe Bradley (un maravilloso Gregory Peck) que termina enamorándose de ella mientras trata de conseguir una exclusiva para su periódico, es perfecta, no sólo para una noche de verano, sino para cualquier época del año.

'Atrapa a un Ladrón' (1955)

Si Cary Grant decide no separarse de ti para atrapar al ladrón de cuyos robos le están inculpando...¿quién podría negarse? Y más si todo esto ocurre en la idílica Costa Azul. Pero no, una vez más, no soy Grace Kelly ni una rica heredera a la que puedan robar las joyas.

Por suerte, no necesitamos vivirlo, porque Hitchcok lo rodó y plasmó tan bien en 'Atrapa a un ladrón' ('To Catch A Thief', Alfred Hitchcok, 1955), con esa mezcla perfecta de thriller y romance que no necesitamos nada más. Gracias Hitch por el glamour de los romances veraniegos entre ladrones y descapotables azules.

'La tentación vive arriba' (1955)

En mi ciudad hay metro, pero no es como el de Nueva York, cuyas rejillas de ventilación provocan un mini-huracán en la superfecie, y aunque así lo fuera, probablemente sería un aire repugnante, calentorro y fétido. Ya sé que a Marilyn Monroe le parece una "brisa deliciosa" en 'La tentación vive arriba' ('The Seven Year Itch', Billy Wilder, 1955), pero no.

En la cinta, Tom Ewell da vida a un neoyorquino de imaginación exagerada que atraviesa una crisis de madurez, pasa el verano en un caluroso Nueva York, mientras su mujer y sus hijos veranean en Maine. En su letargo estival conocerá a una pizpireta modelo de publicidad -Monroe- que alquila un apartamento en su mismo edificio. Ambos pasarán tiempo juntos y él, con su desbordante imaginación, creerá tener una relación con su vecina.

'Tú a Boston y yo a California' (1961)

Nunca fui a un campamento de verano, por lo que hasta donde sé, podría tener una hermana gemela, idéntica a mí, en algún lugar del mundo. Y por supuesto, jamás podremos intercambiar nuestras identidades para conocer el mundo de la otra y conseguir que nuestros padres vuelvan a enamorarse. Pero como dije antes, las expectativas del cine jamás se cumplen y nunca fui esa niña pija londinense que se intercambiaba con su hermana californiana.

Pero una vez más, poco importa. En 'Tú a Boston y yo a California' ('The Parent Trap', David Swift,1961), Hayley Mills ya lo vivía por mí -y mi hermana gemela inexistent, obvio-, y ella y su versión doble conseguían que sus padres -Brian Keith y la pelirroja más pelirroja de Hollywood, Maureen O'Hara- volvieran a juntarse en aquel romántico rancho californiano.

'Búsqueme a esa chica' (1964)

Lo sé. Un salto muy drástico con referencia a las otras películas. Pero no podía dejar de incluirla, por la genialidad que supone ver en una misma película a dos íconos pop de la España de los 60: Marisol y el Dúo Dinámico. Y más si en ella, la niña prodigio y el guapo del dúo vivían un romance veraniego.

En 'Búsqueme a esa chica', Marisol -Pepa Flores- trata de ganarse la vida con su padre en Palma de Mallorca, cuando un ricachón descubre a la chica y quiere convertirla en una estrella, a cambio de alejarla de su padre. Entre tanto, Marisol conoce al Dúo Dinámico y se enamora de uno de ellos. Y hay números musicales tan kitsch y exquisitos como el de arriba.

'Las señoritas de Rochefort' (1967)

Y pasamos de un musical cañí español a uno francés, muy francés, pero rezumando amor por el musical de Hollywood. Sí, hablo de la deliciosa 'Las señoritas de Rochefort' del maestro Jacques Demy, uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos. Y por suerte, transcurre en verano, hay romances y encuentran un hueco en esta lista y por lo tanto, una buena excusa para recuperarla.

Aquí, Catherine Deneuve y Françoise Dorléac -su hermana en la vida real- dan vida a unas gemelas que dan clases de danza y música en la aburrida Rochefort -si véis la película, no es aburrida para nada-. Quieren irse a vivir a París y con el verano, llegan a la ciudad marineros, feriantes y demás, que despertarán las ansias de romance de las jóvenes. Comedia fresquita con números musicales exquisitos, colores, asesinatos y Gene Kelly, ahí lo digo todo.

'El Graduado' (1967)

Y aunque 'El Graduado' ('The Graduate', Mike Nichols) no es una película musical, sí tiene una canción que pasó a la historia: 'Mrs.Robinson' de Simon and Garfunkel, y sin duda la banda sonora ideal para el amor prohibido entre un joven y una mujer madura, a los que dieron vida Dustin Hoffman y Anne Bancroft.

Y es que claro, el verano para unos es sinónimo de descanso y para otros, de intentar decidir qué hacer con sus vidas. Es el caso del personaje de Hoffman, que regresa a casa de sus padres tras graduarse en la universidad. Y mientras sus padres quieren que salga con la hija de unos amigos, será la madre de ésta quien trate seducir al joven e inocente muchacho. Ya saben, el calor y la carne fresca.

'Grease' (1978)

Vale. Lo sé: 'Grease' no cuenta un romance veraniego, pero permitidme la licencia, porque si no hubiera sido por uno, uno de los musicales más míticos de los 70 no habría sucedido jamás. Y es que todo empieza cuando Sandy y Danny, dos adolecentes -interpretados por los treintañeros Olivia Newton John y John Travolta- se despiden tras haber vivido uno de esos ídilicos amores veraniegos, pensando que no volverán a verse.

¡Y qué equivocados estaban! Gracias al maravilloso destino cinematográfico, después del verano ella comenzará el curso en un nuevo instituto...¿y adivinad quién estudia también ahí? ¡Bingo! Lo demás es historia llena de gomina, descapotables, chicle y faldas con vuelo. Y de nada por el vídeo con la letra de 'Summer Nights', por si queréis marcaros un Sing'a'long'

'Pauline en la playa' (1983)

Y nos ponemos un poco más serios y volvemos al cine francés y uno de sus grandes cineastas, Éric Rohmer. Y como en todo su cine, en 'Pauline en la playa' ('Pauline à la plage'), parece que deje la cámara y las historias surgen de forma espontánea y orgánica ante ella. Y parece que no le fue mal, ya que la cinta le valió el Oso de Plata a la Mejor Dirección en la Berlinale de ese año.

De ritmo pausado -ya saben, rohmeriana- como el mejor de los veranos, en 'Pauline en la playa' conocemos Marion y su joven prima Pauline, pasan unas vacaciones en un balneario en Normandía. Allí, la primera se reencontrará con un viejo amor y la segunda, comenzará a descubrir lo que un buen amorío de verano puede dar de sí.

'Dirty Dancing' (1987)

Lo confieso. He visto 'Dirty Dancing' millones de veces, pero nunca me avergonzará decirlo y tengo la suerte de que, con los años, se ha convertido en una cinta de culto y manifiesto feminista. Y viene al pelo porque resulta que cuenta uno de los romances veraniegos más míticos y sensuales de los 80, porque quien no se haya sentido identificado alguna vez con Baby y ese "No dejaré que nadie te arrincone" que le dice Johnny Castle, está mintiendo.

En la cinta, Baby (Jennifer Gray), una recién graduada del instituto va a parar con sus padres y su hermana a un lugar de estos de vacaciones en los que solamente hay jubilados. Por suerte, entre los animadores del lugar hay un bailarín excesivamente atractivo (las niñas de los 80 te querremos siempre, Patrick Swayze) y sensible, que por azares del destino -siempre- tendrá que enseñar a bailar a Baby. Y claro, surge el amor.

'Mi chica' (1991)

Si nacistéis en los 80 y el comienzo de los 90 os pilló en plena infancia o entrando en la adolescencia, lo más propable es que el amor pre-adolescente de 'Mi chica' ('My Girl', Howard Zieff) os traumatizara para siempre. Y no os culpo, porque desde que la vi, mi gran temor son las abejas y avispas. Traumas infantiles a parte, la cinta que protagonizaron Anna Chlumsky y Macaulay Culkin, es ya todo un clásico del 'coming of age', del paso a la infancia a la adolescencia.

La cinta, básicamente, transcurre durante un verano en la vida de Vada, una niña hipocondríaca, que vive con un padre viudo director de una funeraria y pasa parte de su tiempo con su amigo Thomas, alérgico a todo. La niña comienza a sufrir los cambios de la adolescencia a la vez que su padre comienza una relación con su nueva empleada y su amigo y primer amor...bueno, no os lo cuento por si no la vistéis, pero...trauma.

'French Kiss' (1995)

A la pobre Meg Ryan la abandona su novio (Timothy Hutton) por una francesa y ésta afrontará su miedo a volar para viajar a Francia a recuperarlo. Claro, porque viajar a Francia en verano y pasar de París a la Costa Azul es toda una tortura, y mucho más, si conoces en el avión a un francés (o Kevin Kline) que se lleva entre manos negocios bastante chungos, en los que, sin duda, involucrará a la pobre Meg.

Pero no importa si en el fondo, ese francés caradura tiene su corazoncito -y sabe de vinos- y tratará de ayudar a Meg -vale, el personaje se llama Kate, pero ¿qué importa?- a recuperar a su novio. Y bueno, todos sabemos qué no lo hará. Y todo ello en un entorno de ensueño que va desde París, pasando por la campiña francesa y Niza. Todo muy encantador y entrañable. Ni tan mal, Meg.

Trilogía 'Antes del amanecer' (1995 - 2004 - 2013)

Sé que soy un poco pesada con la famosa trilogía de Richard Linklater, protagonizada por Ethan Hawke y Julie Delpy, pero ¿qué le vamos a hacer si son auténticas maravillas además de contener altas dosis de romanticismo sin alejarse nunca de la cruda realidad? Y sí, las tres transcurren en verano y sí, las tres incluyen historias de amor.

En 'Antes del amanecer' ('Before Sunrise', 1995), Jesse y Céline se conocían y vivían una intensa noche de verano en Viena. No se volverían a encontrar hasta 9 años después en 'Antes del atardecer' ('Before Sunset', 2004) y durante una calurosa tarde en París con final abierto. Y otros 9 años pasaron hasta que conocimos ¿el final? de su historia en una isla griega en 'Antes del anocheceder' ('Before Midnight,'2013)

'El Talento de Mr.Ripley' (1999)

Muchísimo más turbio es el romance veraniego que nos contó Anthony Minghella en 1999 en 'El talento de Mr. Ripley' ('The talented Mr. Ripley'), en un entorno y con un reparto de ensueño: Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow y Matt Damon protagonizaron este thriller psicológico ambientada en la soleada Italia de los años 50.

Basada en la novela homónima de Patricia Highsmith, aquí, Matt Damon da vida a Ripley, un chaval de lo más corriente, que viaja a Italia para conseguir que el hijo de su jefe -el maravilloso Jude Law-, un vividor y ganador nato regrese a casa, por el que se sentirá rápidamente atraído. La cosa se lía de tal manera, que Ripley tratará de vengarse ante el rechazo suplantando la identidad del otro. Ambición, atracción y celos en la maravillosa Italia y con gente muy guapa. Porque sí, Cate Banchett también participa en la película.

'Y tu mamá también' (2001)

Ya lo he comentado más arriba, pero con el calorcito la sangre nos llega a todas partes menos a la cabeza y claro, si dos chavales saliendo de la adolescencia como Diego Luna y Gael García Bernal conocen a una mujer más mayor como Maribel Verdú y ésta acepta a unirse a un viaje en furgoneta con ellos, pues se puede liar considerablemente.

Ante la sorpresa de los chavales de que ella haya aceptado, tendrán que ingeniarselas para hacer el viaje y el resultado es una sexy road-trip que cambiara la forma de entender la vida de los tres. Por cierto, es el cuarto largometraje de Alfonso Cuarón, el segundo que rodó en castellano y el que le convirtió en uno de los jóvenes realizadores mexicanos de mayor proyección internacional. Lo demás, ya lo conocemos.

'Ma mère' (2005)

Sí, lo sé, puede que 'Ma mère' de Christophe Honoré cuente una historia de amor demasiado perversa e incestuosa. Pero es que, al fin y al cabo, es una historia de amor y transcurre en verano y su propuesta es lo suficientemente interesante para que os hable de ella y os la descubra, si no la conocéis, aunque que esté protagonizada por Isabelle Huppert y Louis Garrel ya debería ser suficiente.

En su segundo largometraje, Honoré cuenta las perturbadoras vavaciones de una madre y su hijo recién salido de la adolescencia en Mallorca. Él no necesita nada más que el afecto de su madre y ella, con tendencias autodestructivas introducirá a su hijo en el universo sado-masoquista para alcanzar el amor maternal absoluto. Sudor, sexo sucio, tríos e incesto en este perverso relato.

'500 días juntos' (2006)

Puede que lo que más me guste de '500 días juntos' ('500 Days of Summer', Marc Webb) es que no se trata de una comedia romántica al uso, sino que es todo lo contrario: desmitifica el amor romántico perfecto, pero sin llegar a hacer que lo odies. Y como todas las pelis de esta lista, parte de su trama ranscurre en verano, por no hablar del juego de palabras de su título origina que significa '500 días de verano', siendo Summer, además, el nombre de la protagonista.

En la cinta, Joseph Gordon-Levitt da vida a un joven que trabaja escribiendo cartas de felicitación y cree en el amor verdadero, mientras que Summer (Zooey Deschanel), dejó de creer en él cuando sus padres se divorciaron. Él caerá prendidamente enamorado de ella, ella de él no tanto, y éste tratará de reconstruir su relación par ver donde estuvo el problema y poder recuperarla.

'Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona' (2008)

No, no es la mejor película de Woody Allen ni de lejos, pero causó cierto revuelo en su momento por estar rodada en nuestro país y lógicamente, por reunir a nuestras dos estrellas más internacionales: Javier Bardem y Penélope Cruz. Además, es el claro ejemplo de lo que puede pasarle a dos americanas ingenuas que vienen de vacaciones a nuestro país: porque todos los hombres son tan pasionales como el personaje de Bardem y todas las mujeres están locas como el personaje de Cruz. Esto...no.

En la cinta, Vicky y Cristina, dos americanas, viajan de vacaciones a Barcelona. Mientras la primera es sensata y está apunto de casarse, la segunda busca todo tipo de aventuras. ¡Y vaya si las encuentra! Conocerá a un atractivo pintor con el que comenzará un romance...con él y con su inestable ex-mujer.

'Adventureland' (2009)

Greg Mottola dirigía en 2009 a Jesse Eisenberg y Kristen Stewart en 'Adventureland', una claro ejemplo de como un verano que no va a ser como esperabas puede convertirse en algo más o menos mejor -ahí, según las prioridades de cada uno-.

Así, en la cinta, estamos en el verano de 1987 y Eisenberg da vida a un recién graduado en la universidad, que al terminar el curso decide ir a recorrer Europa en sus vacaciones, para después empezar Periodismo en la Universidad de Columbia. Pero sus problemas económicos se lo impedirán, y terminará trabajando en 'Adventureland', donde conocerá a la enigmática Emily.

'Primos' (2011)

Si te dejan plantado en el altar, la cosa más lógica que puedes hacer a continuación es ir al pueblo donde pasaste los veranos de tu infancia para recuperar a tu amor de adolescencia. Lo normal. Por suerte, todo vale en el cine y ¡menos mal! Porque con 'Primos', Daniel Sánchez Arévalo filmó su mejor y más entrañable comedia.

Así, Quim Gutiérrez y sus primos Raúl Arévalo y Adrián Lastra viajan a Comillas (Cantabria), en plenas fiestas de verano, para que el primero se reencuentre con Inma Cuesta, su primer gran amor. Entre hortalizas, canciones de los Backstreet Boys, verbenas y ferias de pueblo, transcurre este(os) divertido(s) y entrañable(s) romance(s).

'Moonrise Kingdom' (2012)

Y otro verano retro, pero esta vez de 1965 y reproducido bajo la fascinante y mágina mirada de Wes Anderson, lo que implica que 'Moonrise Kingdom' es, sin duda, una cinta de lo más especial, con campamento de verano incluído y una apuesta visual casi, casi, convertida en icónica.

Sam y Suzy se conoce en un campamento de verano, donde los niños pre-adolescentes pasan el día haciendo todo tipo de actividades y viviendo mil aventuras. Pero Sam y Suzy se han enamorado y planearán una escapada para poder vivir juntos y a su manera, fuera de el universo estricto paternal.

'Un jeune poète' (2014)

Aunque creo que no se ha estrenado en España, si alguna vez os topáis con 'Un jeune poète' (Damien Manivel), ni lo dudéis. Y es que me ha parecido oportuno hablaros de ella porque es una cinta interesantísima sobre madurar, las ambiciones -y pretensiones- de la juventud y encontrar el lugar de uno en el mundo. Y claro está, porque transcurre en verano y hay un romance, que para eso hemos venido.

En la cinta, el pobre Rémi sueña con ser poeta y fascinar al mundo con sus versos y por ello, viaja en soledad a la calurosa ciudad de Sète, en el sur de Francia, con lapicero y cuaderno para buscar la inspiración y escribir poemas maravillosos. Rémi lo intenta con todas sus fuerzas, hasta que se enamora de una joven y podrá, por fin, escribir algo. Lo mejor de la cinta, son los penosos intentos de Rémi de ser bohemio. Mucho postureo, vamos.

'Kiki, el amor se hace' (2016)

En su tercer largometrjae como director, Paco León habla de todo tipo de filias sexuales extrañas y como no podía ser de otra forma, asocia el sexo con el verano. Porque en el Madrid que nos muestra León en 'Kiki, el amor se hace', hae mucho calor y parece que esto hace aumentar el deseo sexual de sus habitantes y despierta sus más oscuras -y raras- filias.

Una película coral, muy veraniega y colorida y que a ritmo de pop es toda una oda a la diferencia, a la liberación sexual y claro está, al amor veraniego.

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!拉致されて39年、風化させない 川口で田口八重子さん写真展 埼玉》

北朝鮮による拉致被害者で、埼玉県川口市出身の田口八重子さん(61歳。拉致当時22歳)の写真展が同市中央図書館(同市川口)の入り口で開催されている。7月2日まで。
拉致問題への関心を高めようと、同市と拉致問題を考える川口の会が「拉致されて39年! 田口八重子さん写真展」と題し開催。29日は市民ら約150人が訪れ、真剣に写真を眺めていた。
田口さんは昭和53年6月29日、22歳の時に1歳と2歳の子供を残し、北朝鮮に拉致された。安否は未確認で、北朝鮮政府は交通事故で死亡したと主張している。

◆昭和53(1978)年6月頃
李恩恵(リ・ウネ)拉致容疑事案
被害者:田口八重子さん(拉致被害時22歳)
昭和62年11月の大韓航空機(KAL)爆破事件で有罪判決を受けた元北朝鮮諜報員金賢姫(キム・ヒョンヒ)氏は「李恩恵(リ・ウネ)」という女性から日本人の振る舞い方を学んだと主張している。この李恩恵は行方不明となった田口さんと同一人物と考えられる。
北朝鮮側は、田口さんは1984(昭和59)年に原 敕晁さんと結婚し、1986(昭和61)年の原さんの病死後すぐに自動車事故で死亡したとしているが、これを裏付ける資料等の提供はなされていない。
平成21年3月、金賢姫氏と飯塚家との面会において、金氏より田口さんの安否にかかる重要な参考情報(注)が新たに得られたことから、現在、同情報についての確認作業を進めている。
(注)金氏の発言:「87年1月にマカオから帰ってきて、2月か3月頃、運転手から田口さんがどこか知らないところに連れて行かれたと聞いた。86年に一人暮らしの被害者を結婚させたと聞いたので、田口さんもどこかに行って結婚したのだと思った」

※「八重子さんが北朝鮮の南浦港に着いたとき、女性通訳に“私には子供が二人いて、どうしても日本に帰らなくてはならないので、返してほしい”と何回も言ってお願いしたそうです。八重ちゃんの思いは最初から最後まで子供のことでいっぱいでしたし、今でも間違い無く“今、彩ちゃんはいくつになって、耕ちゃんはいくつになった”と毎年計算して、どんな大人になったか知りたがっているはずです。すごく会いたがっていると思います」

[In or around June 1978: Lee Un-Hae abducted]

Abductee: Yaeko Taguchi (22, female, Unknown)
Kim Hyon-Hui, a former North Korean agent convicted of the bombing of a Korean Airlines jet in November 1982, claims to have been trained to blend into Japanese society by a woman named Lee Un-Hae. Lee Un-Hae is thought to be Yaeko Taguchi, a woman reported as missing in Japan.
North Korea asserts that Ms. Taguchi married Tadaaki Hara in 1984 and, soon after Mr. Hara’s death from illness in 1986, died in an automobile accident. North Korea has, however, provided no documents or evidence to support these claims.
At a meeting in March 2009 between members of the Iizuka family, relatives of Ms. Yaeko Taguchi, and Kim Hyon-Hui, important new information regarding the whereabouts of Ms. Taguchi (see note) was gained from Ms. Kim. The GoJ is currently working to confirm this information.
Note: Ms. Kim said: "After returning from Macau in January 1987, I heard from a driver in February or March that Ms. Taguchi had been taken to an unknown location. I'd heard that in 1986 an abductee living alone had been made to marry, so I thought that Ms. Taguchi must also have gone somewhere to get married."

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.

【拉致事件、捜査の現状】
北朝鮮による拉致事件を巡り、日本の警察はこれまで実行犯や指示役として北朝鮮の元工作員たち合わせて11人を国際手配しています。
拉致には金正日(キム・ジョンイル)総書記が掌握していた対外情報調査部と呼ばれる工作機関が組織的に関わっていた疑いが強いと見て捜査を続けています。
このうち、福井県の地村保志さん・富貴恵さん夫妻を拉致した実行犯として元工作員の辛光洙(シン・グァンス)容疑者が手配されています。
また、大阪府の原 敕晁さんが拉致された事件では、辛容疑者とともに金吉旭(キム・キルウク)容疑者も共犯者として手配されています。
この他、東京都の久米 裕さん拉致事件では金世鎬(キム・セホ)容疑者が、新潟県の曽我ひとみさん拉致事件にはキム・ミョンスク容疑者がそれぞれ関わったとして手配されています。
北海道出身の渡辺秀子さんの子供2人の拉致事件では、工作員グループのリーダー格で北朝鮮にいると見られる洪寿恵(ホン・スヘ)こと木下陽子容疑者が手配されています。
新潟県の蓮池 薫さん・祐木子さん夫妻の拉致事件ではチェ・スンチョル容疑者が実行犯として手配されている他、金総書記が掌握していた対外報調査部と呼ばれる北朝鮮の工作機関の幹部であるハン・クムニョン容疑者とキム・ナンジン容疑者が拉致の実行を指示したとして手配されています。
ハン容疑者たちは工作機関で「指導員」と呼ばれる立場で、辛光洙容疑者たちもこの組織の一員だったことがわかっており、警察は北朝鮮が組織的に拉致を実行した疑いが強いと見て捜査を続けています。
よど号ハイジャック事件のメンバーたちも1980年代にヨーロッパで相次いだ3人の日本人拉致に関わった疑いで国際手配されています。
このうち、有本恵子さん拉致事件では魚本公博(安部公博)容疑者が、石岡 亨さんと松木 薫さん拉致事件ではよど号メンバーの妻の森 順子・若林佐喜子両容疑者がそれぞれ手配されています。

PUTRAJAYA – Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi menafikan laporan agensi berita Jepun bahawa Malaysia telah menghentikan pengeluaran permit kerja untuk warga Korea Utara.

1. OVERVIEW OF CHINA
China, with a population of over 1.3 billion and a land area of 9.6 million km2 , has a potential market for business development. China’s GDP increases by double digits in the past few years, since the strong economic development enhanced by foreign demand and domestic consumption. Now more and more investors rush to China for business setup and market share in form of WFOE or joint venture, owing to China’s market, labor and policy advantages.

2. THE CONCEPT OF WFOE
WFOE stands for wholly foreign owned enterprise, which is a Limited liability company wholly owned by the foreign investor(s). WFOE means the foreign investors(including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) established the enterprise within Chinese territory, in accordance with 《PRC Wholly Foreign founded Enterprise Law》, with capital provided solely by the foreign investor. The foreign investors refer to the foreign enterprise, individual or partner. (Including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).
In China, WFOE were originally conceived for encouraged manufacturing activities that were either export orientated or introduced advanced technology. However, with China's entry into the WTO, these conditions were gradually abolished and the WFOE is increasingly being used for service providers such as a variety of consulting and management services, software development and trading as well.

          Macau casinos post 11th month of gains on VIP resurgence   

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Revenues in the world’s biggest casino hub of Macau jumped nearly 30 percent in June, posting an 11-month winning streak, as demand from high-roller VIPs accelerated despite a corruption crackdown.

Monthly gambling revenue in the Chinese special administrative region rose 25.9 percent to 20 billion patacas ($2.49 billion), government data showed on Saturday. Analysts were expecting growth of 23 percent to 33 percent for Macau, the only place in the country where gambling is legal.

Revenues have rebounded after a more than 2-year tumble triggered by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s attack on corruption, with a revival in appetite from high-rollers and mass gamblers.

Operators are cautious about the resurgence of VIP revenue, which is highly volatile compared to the more stable flows from mass market customers.

VIP punters are typically brought in by middlemen known as junket companies. While the VIP sector contributes just over half of Macau’s total casino revenues, junket patrons have been subject to greater legal scrutiny due to concerns over money laundering.

          Comment on The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft by donsmacau   
Ironically my view on JJ would be slightly more diminished if he elects to come to Brooklyn knowing that the Nets have no desire to START him. JJ is 33yo but he believes (and stats show) that he is starting quality and still at the top of his production capacity. <b>I don't want a player who believes he truly is the best STARTER on his team, to accept a bench role - that is defeatest. </b> Said same last season as JLIN left Hornets.
          Comment on The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft by donsmacau   
Nets committment to JLIN-DAR backcourt means that CLV moves to SF - this league the distinction between the wing spots of SG/SF are increasingly more interchangeable. CLV is 6-7" with nearly 7 ft wingspan that is epitome of size you want in SF
          Comment on The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft by donsmacau   
JLIN will renegotiate and extend but JLIN does not wish to be anywhere near the highest paid PG in the league - been there done that; as long as JLIN gets a fair deal he's happy. Jru Holiday cannot get $25M in endorsements overnight from the Asian market.
          Comment on The Old and New Faces of Brooklyn Nets After 2017 NBA Draft by donsmacau   
Drue Holiday isn't a floor leader and I don't understand why NOP hitched their hopes here. Dru would be a great backup and perhaps he has good rapport with Cousins/AD. The one season in the past 7 that NOP made playoffs was when Eric Gordon replaced Dru at PG.

Macauley Island — caldera, formed after the eruption of an underwater volcano of the same name 6100 years ago (here and below the image of the authors.)

January 21, 2013. Until now, scientists were divided eruption into two categories: violent (explosive) and effusive. The first type involves adorable kids emission of ash and rock fragments high into the atmosphere (for example, eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980). The second — the soft glow of red lava streams that irrigate the slopes of the volcano (this, for example, constantly going on in Hawaii).

          14 celebrity love triangles you totally forgot about   

 

sandra bullock jesse james

There's never a shortage of celebrity drama.

Whether they're rocking the no-makeup look on a red carpet or photoshopping themselves at the beach, the world has an opinion.

And everyone certainly had an opinion when these dramatic love triangles came to light.

From secret affairs to cheating scandals, here are 14 of the most talked about celebrity love triangles to ever come out of Hollywood.

Kate Hudson, Alex Rodriguez, and Cameron Diaz

Alex Rodriguez is no stranger to dating high-profile women, having dated Madonna and currently being linked to Jennifer Lopez.

In 2008, A-Rod was reportedly dating actress Kate Hudson. She was photographed at his games time and time again, and was even hailed his good luck charm when the Yankees won the World Series in 2009. 

Their relationship only lasted a few months, and it took him next to no time to find someone new. Weeks after things came to a halt with Hudson, he was seen getting cozy with Cameron Diaz. 

Rumors started flying that Diaz was only dating him as revenge, because Hudson allegedly hooked up with Justin Timberlake right after he and Diaz broke up in early 2007. 



Jude Law, Sienna Miller, and Daniel Craig

News of Jude Law's affair with his children's nanny was one of the most talked about scandals of the mid-2000s. It even led to him and Sienna Miller calling off their engagement.

They gave it a second shot after letting the dust settle, but broke up for good in early 2011. The couple went their separate ways and didn't share headlines again until 2014, when it was revealed that Miller and Law were victims of the "News of the World" phone hacks

During the testimonies they had to give in 2014, Law and Miller both admitted to being caught up in a 2005 love triangle with James Bond actor Daniel Craig, which was revealed by a voicemail Miller left for Craig in which she says "I love you."

What was once just rumor and speculation became fact when Miller detailed her "brief encounter" with Craig, her "Layer Cake" co-star at the time. She did make sure to note that the "I love you" at the end of the recording wasn't as big of a deal as people made it out to be. 

"The thing that's been slightly misconstrued about this voicemail message is the fact that I said "I love you" and that this was some incredibly important declaration of love. I've always ended my phone calls to Daniel saying 'love you,'" she said.



Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, and Mila Kunis

While Mila Kunis wasn't the woman that caused Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's divorce, there have been years of back and forth for everyone involved.

Kunis has admitted that she's always had a crush on her "That '70s Show" co-star, whom she met on set when she was just 14. He was even her first kiss! However, she was dating Macaulay Culkin while Kutcher was seeing Moore. 

Coincidentally, both of those long-term couples called it quits in 2011, and within a few short months Kunis and Kutcher were spotted all over town together. Kunis revealed that it started as a friends with benefits situation, but has since obviously evolved, as the two are married with a child.

As for Moore, sources say that she was (and still is) frustrated by the sudden romance, and has even asked friends not to mention their wedding. On top of that, it's also been reported that she won't stop calling him.

          Here’s What Happened When I Debated Nazi Richard Spencer   

From Idavox - by Lacy MacAuley

We are not going to reach common ground, and I’ll try not to punch him. By Lacy MacAuley.

“Antifa never take showers,” was one of the first things that Richard Spencer, the country’s most notorious Nazi, said to insult me. He was facing the interviewer, Chris Kilmer of the ABC National News program, 20/20. The on-camera debate had just begun.*

“So, if antifascist activists only took showers more frequently, you would respect them more?” I interrupted. He said yes. “This is the most ridiculous ad hominem attack,” I laughed.

“Yes, it is an ad hominem attack,” said Spencer.

“You do realize that the cultures that you idolize — feudal England, feudal Germany — you know that they didn’t have showers, right?” I said.

Then Spencer smiled, and I wished I hadn’t said anything remotely funny. It was the sinister, creepy smile of someone with dark thoughts of murdering people, or at least denying people the right to exist. Spencer is, after all, a white supremacist who promotes genocide. Depending on who you ask, he is a rich white boy who is most famous either for coining the term “Alt Right,” or for getting sucker punched by a black-mask-wearing protester in Washington DC at Donald Trump’s Inauguration, a punch celebrated around the world. Facing him down for a debate felt necessary, but the proximity was unsettling.

Antifascist activists, or “antifa,” stand against fascist, totalitarian, authoritarian regimes and systems. That’s why we protest things like capitalism, the police, oppressive governments, and global institutions like the International Monetary Fund or the G20. Anyone who stands against oppression, anyone who thinks power should rest with the people, is probably antifascist. That includes people of color, Muslims, immigrants, women, the LGBTQIA+ community, trans youth, indigenous people, and anyone who wants to bring power back to everyday people.

Lately, many of us have been increasingly concerned about the fascist right-wing movements that promote white supremacy, white nationalism, police violence, racism, anti-Islamophobia, anti-migration, anti-feminism, gender normativity, and other hateful things. You’ve seen more antifa in the streets lately, protesting the far right, mobilizing to protect people’s right to exist.

The debate with Spencer had been arranged by the 20/20 news program. The news producers had been looking for someone who identifies as “antifa” to debate the unsavory character. I am one of a small number of antifascist activists who have been “doxed,” and have been subjected to a constant droll of online right-wing harassment. (People wonder why we wear masks, but look what happens when we don’t. Constant harassment. Plus the risk that police will decide to arrest you simply for being an activist, and find something to charge you with. Yep, that happens.) Since I’ve also been a media activist, my contact information is available. The producers called me up.

As a member of the DC Antifascist Coalition who has helped to organize protests outside of Spencer’s conference events, I decided I was prepared to debate the guy, but was conflicted about whether this would give him a platform. It was apparent, however, that the news program would be showing Spencer extensively anyway, whether there was someone to counter him or not. I mentioned the debate request to a few local antifascist activists and to Daryle Lamont Jenkins of the One People’s Project. “Break legs everywhere. You’re gonna be great,” said one fellow organizer. So, I said yes. Honestly, I couldn’t tell if the news producers were searching for someone who could face him down in words or the hard currency of knuckle sandwiches. Several friends asked if I wanted company, but I declined. I wanted to focus. I went alone.

I arrived on time, at a picnic table in Rock Creek Park, Washington DC, on Thursday, June 22, 2017. It was a hot day and the gnats were a small issue. Spencer was almost half an hour late. After he arrived, I continued to wait and chat with the producers, since apparently Spencer needed makeup due to some sort of welts on his neck. (Fight club training, I wondered?) By the time everyone was assembled, a five-person news crew was present with two giant news cameras. Spencer had brought a young flunkee with a “fashy” haircut and a sneer.

Spencer reached out to shake the interviewer’s hand, then turned to me. I declined the handshake: “I agreed to speak with you, not shake your hand.”

Early in the debate, I was of course asked about the time that Spencer was punched. I’d helped to organize the protests where the punch took place but hadn’t witnessed it myself. “Don’t you think that was violent?” asked the interviewer.

“In certain circumstances,” I said, “I believe that a sucker punch can be a symbolic act.” The way I see it, It’s like breaking a bank window or burning an American flag. This is the “propaganda of the deed,” an act that does not permanently damage anyone but sends a clear message. After all, it isn’t just activists who bounced around whether the act was right or not. It was The New York Times and a large body of the general public, some of whom enthusiastically made meme after meme of the punch. People understand that it is satisfying to punch a bully, such as a man who seeks to crush people of color, or anyone he declares unfit, under his heel. Our US military spent World War II fighting Nazis. Fighting Nazis has been canonized by everyone from Captain American to Wonder Woman to Indiana Jones. So how is this one punch wrong?

“So punching me is a symbolic act?” snorted Spencer incredulously. I turned to him. What I said next was even more satisfying.

“You have called for actual genocide. Actual genocide. When it comes to whether someone does or does not sucker punch you, you have no moral credibility,” I said. After all, if Spencer’s violent agenda calls for genocide, it’s clearly hypocritical to cry about being punched.

“Oh, I don’t support genocide,” he blurted out. I looked hard at him. I couldn’t tell if he actually believed that or if it was just a survival mechanism to get him through the debate. Here he was, denying his most controversial views. He hasn’t just called for genocide once, he’s supported it publicly many times throughout his career as a white supremacist.

“I have never called for genocide,” he said again.

Luckily, legal experts have defined what genocide actually means. The United Nations has defined genocide as acts perpetrated against a group, such as a racial group. This was codified in the Genocide Convention of 1948. These acts include: “Killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” That treaty, by the way, also makes illegal “direct and public incitement to commit genocide.” Just saying.

Spencer supports government programs of forced sterilization, or at least forced contraception, to prevent births among people of color. Here is what he said to Salon reporter Lauren M. Fox in 2013 on the topic of genetics:

“We are undergoing a sad process of degeneration… We will need to reverse it using the state and the government. You incentivize people with higher intelligence, you incentivize people who are healthy to have children. And it sounds terrible and nasty, but there would be a great use of contraception.”

So, he believes that “the state and the government” should reverse genetic “degeneration.” Spencer believes in the same tired eugenics of Nazi Germany. He believes in the genetic “inferiority” of certain people. Followers of the “Alt Right” movement believe in the debunked science of IQ tests as predictors of intelligence. (IQ tests tend to more accurately measure how uncreatively young minds have assimilated into the capitalist system.) So when Spencer says that he wants to preserve people with “higher intelligence,” he means he wants people of color to use “contraception” as part of a government program. That’s forced sterilization based on race, which is a form of genocide.

Also, “peaceful ethnic cleansing” isn’t a thing. No, ethnic cleansing is always violent — at best as violent as a concentration camp, or as violent as forcing someone to wear a straightjacket in a white rubber room. But Spencer called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing” in a 2013 speech at the American Renaissance conference. Guess what? That too is genocide.

It doesn’t matter whether Spencer has ever used the word “genocide.” What matters is that his support for forced sterilization and “ethnic cleansing” is defined as support for genocide. And yes, forced sterilization is cruel and horrible and all of those things, and he would like to use it against people he deems genetically unfit. To him, that means people of color.

But to make his support for genocide painfully obvious, Spencer’s website AlternativeRight.com actually published an article entitled “Is Black Genocide Right?” that tries to make the case for killing people of color. Making a delusional “it’s us or them” argument, the author, who is presumably white, clearly suggests that all black people should perish. And to be honest, does it surprise anyone that Spencer, who has led Nazi salutes and said, “Let’s party like it’s 1933” (the year Hitler came to power) when Trump was elected, supports genocide? Nope.

So yes, he has supported genocide. Actual genocide.

Of course, in the real world, people who write vile hate speech must absolutely be made to defend their words. You can’t just deny that you said things. Hate has consequences.

Somewhere uphill of the picnic table, a woodpecker was calling a wavering alarm call. Children were riding bicycles through the park. I took a deep breath.

“Everyone here is capable of doing research on what you have said,” I smiled. “So, for the sake of this debate, I am going to have to just assume that you are not being truthful. Yes, you have called for genocide.”

“So you think that punching me is just a symbolic act?” asked Spencer. “Then why don’t you do it right now.” He actually smiled his creepy smile, and sort of wiggled his shoulders in a theatrical way. I guess his theatrical demeanor is not surprising for someone who studied music in college. Just like it took studying art to make Hitler a Hitler.

“Yeah. No. I am not going to do that,” I said. The thing is, wanting to punch him and wanting to be seen punching him are two different things. I’m sure he would have loved for me to take a swing, so that he could bolster his fame and also send me to jail. Maybe that’s what the news producers wanted too. But there I was using my real name in front of two massive cameras, not to mention Spencer’s young bodyguard sneering at me from behind the interviewer. The other thing standing behind Spencer and the entire far right is layers of privilege that allow them to receive favorable treatment from law enforcement, the news media, and onlookers. So yeah. I’m not going to take that swing.

During the debate, we easily traced the edges of the things that we will never, ever agree on. Spencer believes that you can deny some people their fundamental right to exist. Spencer doesn’t think it’s important that governments prioritize individual rights, but is willing to jump on the bandwagon of using the concept of free speech to promote his movement. Furthermore, I am an anarchist. And like many people who are anarchist or antifascist or both, I will never accept the “might makes right” philosophy that guides the lives of those who have given up hope. Individual respect and autonomy, community empowerment and embracing diversity, and the right to live with dignity — these are the things shape my worldview. I do not believe the people with the strongest use of force or the best guns win in the end, though everyone has a right to self defense and community defense. Power corrupts and the powerful perish, and the course history is guided by the people who create a way forward with love and courage, despite corrupt rulers and oppressive systems, even if we are not always the ones in their history books. So no. Big surprise: I will never agree with the Nazis.

A bizarre point of the interview came when I made the case for embracing diversity. “Some of the best elements of our society have come from different people coming together in the spirit of openness, of feeling out the edges of experience, of innovation. Humanity is at its best when we have open exchanges and learn from each other.”

“I agree with you,” said Spencer implausibly. “I think we need to stop spending money on equality and start spending money on space travel —“

“Whoa, now we’re taking about space travel?” I interrupted. I could not help laughing. I looked at the producer behind the cameraperson, who was also chuckling. “I think this conversation just went out of orbit,” I said.

Rather than double down on his extraterrestrial point, Spencer abruptly abandoned the topic and came back to multiculturalism. He doesn’t like diversity, and is threatened by babies that don’t bear his skin tone. Shocker.

In another point of the interview, the interviewer asked me whether antifascist activists were opposed to free speech, because we have protested at events with some of the least desirable characters on the far right — Milo Yiannopoulos, who has since fallen from grace for comments on sexual abuse of children, Ann Coulter, who by the way cancelled her own event in the end, and of course Spencer and his band of Nazi-saluting white boys — effectively getting those events shut down. These far right speakers claim their events have something to do with free speech, instead of what they are really doing, which is mobilizing support for denying people the right to exist. Now that they have a direct line into the White House, their threats are credible.

“We protest at their events precisely because we have listened, we have heard them, and we believe they pose a credible threat to our right to exist,” I said. “As such, it is our duty to oppose them.”

What did Spencer think of the protests outside of right wing events? And the idea of physical clashes with antifascist activists?

“I don’t think we should throw the first punch,” said Spencer adamantly, raising his voice and gesticulating wildly, “But when they punch us, we should punch back.”

I guess Spencer didn’t see the irony here. He was on the receiving end of perhaps the best-publicized punch that has occurred this year in the United States. Did he punch back? Nope. He held his chin in his hand and glanced behind him as he high-tailed it out of there.

I also think we need to punch back, so to speak.

“The thing is, when the far right is mobilizing against us, when our rights are under attack, we will fight back,” I said. “We will be in the streets.”

What did I think of the recent shooting of US Congressman Steve Scalise?

“I do not endorse this shooting,” I said. I then pontificated a bit, including on what the definition of violence was in a political context in which people are dying at the hands of the US government. “Just because you can outsource your violence, just because you are not the one holding the baton or forcing people out of their homes, doesn’t mean that [what Spencer supports] is not violence.”

“She is avoiding the issue,” said Spencer.

I guess the violence he endorses is the kind in which rich white boys like him do not have to get their hands dirty. No, he can mobilize for the most violent policies of genocide imaginable, while never doing anything but looking clean and sharp in a collared shirt, standing just far enough away from the violence to not get splattered with blood. There’s avoiding the issue. Spencer is avoiding the issue of his violence to the point of delusion.

A recurring theme of the debate was that Spencer kept accusing me of dodging questions. But the world is nuanced. It made me hyper aware that he saw the world in his simplistic, black-and-white terms, so to speak. He could not even sit still while I went more deeply into the issues at hand. Perhaps he was just waiting for me to repeat the watered-down talking points he expected an antifascist activist to say, thereby confirming his worldview. But when I did not play his confirmation bias game, he could not even comprehend what I was saying. Whenever I would more deeply address a topic in question, to suss out nuances, he would lose patience. In addition to wondering about his black-and-white worldview, I couldn’t help but wonder how often he actually sat and listened to the ideas of women, femmes, or trans people, in his whites-only, very male world. Probably not a lot.

“One thing that we haven’t hit on is the overlap between the ‘Alt Right’ movement and the so-called ‘manosphere,’” I said. Manosphere adherents such as Mike Cernovich hold that women need a strong man in their lives and claim that men’s rights are under attack, instead of being continually upheld by a global system that tends to value anyone who is male above women, femmes, or trans people. The far right group “Proud Boys,” whose followers are cut from the same cloth as Spencer’s, has said that “women should be feminine and polite.” Spencer, for his part, has made many rapey and misogynist comments, such as when he told Rolling Stone Magazine, “At some part of every woman’s soul, they want to be taken by a strong man.” He also tweeted, “Women should never be allowed to make foreign policy.”

So opposing Spencer and his movement is, to me, a matter of self defense. I am not shrinking back into a little gender role in his little gendered world. If he and his movement want women back in little subservient roles, they will have to use either violence or the threat of violence to make that happen. That didn’t stop him from repeating the tired mantra that it is antifascists, not the far right, that is violent.

“I’d like to bring this back to reality,” I said. “Their side has all of the guns. Their side has the police and the military. The only person who is antifa or ‘Alt Right’ who has ever been shot is on our side, when a MAGA-hat wearing guy shot a person who identified as an antifascist activist in Seattle in January.”

I was referring to antifascist activist Joshua Dukes, who was de-escalating at a protest outside a Milo Yiannopoulos event when he was shot by either Mark or Elizabeth Hokoana, a married couple and Trump supporters. The Hokoanas had come armed with mace and a handgun. Mark Hokoana had said on Facebook earlier that day, that he was going to be at the event armed and would look for an excuse to “wade through their ranks and start cracking skulls.” Luckily, Dukes survived, minus a few organs, after a harrowing ordeal and multiple surgeries.

“See, she only cares about her fellow antifa,” said Spencer after I had mentioned the shooting, though I’d been referring again and again to protecting the right to exist for all of the marginalized groups who Spencer would like to see die. I read his response as him not having a decent point to conclude that antifa was more violent than his side.

At one point, near the very end of the debate, Spencer looked at me, probably seeing only a white woman, no more and no less, a package of genes, a white-baby machine, and said something to the effect of, “You need to find out who you are.” This was a reference to the “Alt Right” slogan, “become who you are,” the slogan that wants to reduce each one of us to our race like it’s a Slurpee flavor with no mixing allowed.

“Oh I know exactly who I am,” I put my hand down on the picnic table for emphasis. “I am someone who will never accept the idea that we need to be delineated and separated into little nation-states based upon our race. I don’t believe most people want to live in a little nation-state where everyone looks the same and everyone thinks the same. That is oppressive, it is a fascist state, and furthermore, it is exceptionally boring.”

He looked at me with a creepy look in his eyes. “Oh, it won’t be boring,” he said, complete with a little eyebrow raise as he said “boring.” I wasn’t sure if this was his attempt at sexual innuendo, but it did have the effect of making me want to punch him all over again.

“Yes, it will be very boring,” I said.

At some point, near the very end of the interview, he said, with a self-congratulating, masturbatory flourish, “I give your life meaning!”

I cringed. “Excuse me? I have been an activist for nearly all of my adult life, and I have been organizing as an anarchist for nearly a decade,” I said. “As an anarchist, I care about de-constructing power. Since your movement has been gaining power, and posing a credible threat, I have cared about opposing you.” I looked at the interviewer, Chris Kilmer. “If tomorrow, you were the one gaining power and posing a credible threat, I would be opposing you.” Kilmer nodded back in understanding. I spoke of the larger body of antifascist work, work that people are doing every day. Some people are opposing fascism just by surviving another day in a system that is stacked against them. I spoke of my own work to oppose the IMF, World Bank, G20, WTO, the government and oppression in general. I spoke of my early activism protesting the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and my support for global justice, and what it means to be an anarchist. I spoke of Steve Bannon and others in the administration who are influencing and who are influenced by the far right movement, which poses a danger to almost everyone who is not at the very top.

“So how do you actually see the government? Do you see it as Russian dolls?” asked Spencer. “Trump is one layer, Bannon is the next layer, and then I am the next layer? Is that how you see it? Yes or no!” he demanded.

“Well, I see you as being a figure in a movement, and you have a direct line —“

“Wow, she is incapable of even giving a straight answer,” he began to say, looking over at the interviewers for validation, “See, this is just her again incapable of answering a question.”

“If you want to hear my answer, you are going to have to listen,” I glared at him, with all of the many years of being a woman and not actually being heard burning out of my eyes like the counter-fire of a war. “Listen, the real world is just nuanced. The real world is complex. So my answers are going to be complex. If you want my answer to your question, you are going to have to actually listen.” I paused.

He looked back at me like a deer in headlights. “I’m listening,” he said.

“Alright. I see your movement as having a direct line to Bannon, to Miller, to the rest of the Trump Administration. What you say leads to real policy. The Trump Administration has been making real policy that is actually impacting real people. Already, awful policies have been made against Muslims, immigrants, trans youth, and now women if the health care bill goes through. You are one of the influential figures among many influential figures in your movement. As such, we will protest you.”

Not long after, we parted ways. After I’d insisted he stop and listen to my answer to his own question, he didn’t say much. He stopped smiling or looking half as cocky as he had earlier in the day. The news producers began leading each of us off to different sides of Rock Creek Park for post-debate interviews. “See you in the streets!” were my final words to him, which I shouted to him as he was walking away with his flunkee. He looked hot and deflated. A weak grunt was all that was offered in return. Is this the guy who wants to lead “his people” to their own “ethno-state?”

I think the news producers had hoped we would find points of agreement. Or maybe just a fist fight. What they got was two people who will never agree. Such is the drama of our time.

I was asked in the follow-up interview what I learned. I said, “I see Richard Spencer as the last gasp of those who wish to keep their white privilege at all costs.” But we cannot let him bring the rest of us down, too, just because they are throwing a temper tantrum as the world shifts gradually away from the imperialism that gave them their power. This is one we must win.

“If they win, there will be genocide, death, and untold suffering,” I said. “If we win, they will have to go back to their little worlds. And everyone lives.”

          Macaúbas-BA: Carreta carregada tomba e deixa feridos próximo ao povoado do Açude, vídeo.   
Cena rara de se vê na região de Macaúbas-BA, cidade localizada no sudoeste da Bahia, bem no Vale do Paramirim. Pois na manhã deste sábado (01), por volta das 6:00h da manhã, uma carreta contendo dezenas de fardos de arroz, que seguia pela via de acesso BA-245, acabou tombando próximo a entrada do povoado de Açude, na curva mais perigosa do trecho, conhecida como curva da morte, palco de acidentes fatais. 

Tudo indica que o motorista tenha perdido o controle na curva e tombando na lateral da pista. Segundo informações, de populares ao blog macaubense Life, a carreta licenciada de Turvo Santa Catarina, placa policial MJE-6494 com 4 ocupantes iria fazer uma entrega de mercadorias, em alguns comércios no município de Ibipitanga. 

De acordo com populares, alguns dos ocupantes (chapas // carregadores) ficaram feridos, um deles teve a mão direita dilacerada, mas ambos foram socorridos por um motorista não identificado que passava pelo local e socorreu os feridos "esperando por socorro", levando-os para o (HAAS) hospital de Macaúbas. Ainda não se sabe o que teria provocado o acidente, quanto ao motorista, nada sofreu. A carga foi removida do local. Vídeo abaixo:

          Pacquiao vs. Horn: Weigh-In Results, Odds, Fight Time and Undercard Info   

At this late stage of his career, Manny Pacquiao isn't afraid to try something new. The WBO world welterweight champion has fought 67 times in his professional career, in the United States, Japan, Thailand, Macau and his native Philippines, but this weekend, he's fighting in a new place.

Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 knockouts) will turn the boxing world's attention toward the unlikely location of Australia on Saturday (Sunday local time) when he defends his title against Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

In the United States, the fight will be live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes starting at 9 p.m. ET. Live streaming is available through WatchESPN. Per ESPN.com, Australian coverage is through the pay-per-view platform Foxtel.

Here's the televised undercard for the event, per CBSSports.com's Kevin Skiver:

  • Michael Conlan (2-0, 2 KOs) vs. Jarrett Owen (5-4-3, 2 KOs), super bantamweight
  • Jerwin Ancajas (26-1-1, 17 KOs) vs. Teiru Kinoshita (25-1-1, 8 KOs), super flyweight
  • Shane Mosley Jr. (10-1-0, 7 KOs) vs David Toussaint (10-0, 8 KOs), super middleweight

The location is good news for Horn, a Brisbane native. Pacquiao, who has strung together strong wins over Jessie Vargas and Timothy Bradley Jr. since his loss to Floyd Mayweather, will be the biggest challenge of his career by far, and the odds are against him.

According to OddsShark, Horn is a 4-1 underdog and Pacquiao a 1-6 favorite. Those aren't terribly steep, and they likely speak to Horn's fresh, ready approach and the fact that the wheels might fall off Pacquiao at any time considering he's 38 and hasn't scored a knockout since 2009.

Horn is nine years younger than Pacquiao and undefeated to this point in his career, but it will likely take his best effort and the full support of what should be a massive hometown crowd to defeat the tenacious eight-division champion. 

At Friday's weigh-in, Pacquiao weighed 146 pounds, per Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole, while Horn tipped the scales at 147 pounds. Pacquiao avoided addressing the media at the weigh-in, per the Australian Associated Press (via ESPN.com), but Horn was fairly open about the process and what he's focusing on to topple his legendary opponent.

"I keep going over this 10-point plan that Glenn's done up for me," he said, referring to trainer Glenn Rushton, per the AAP. "I just keep that in my mind, what I'm going to have to do in the ring, which will upset Manny."

Horn is coming off a good string of results, having forced stoppages in his last three matches, but he's only been a pro since 2013. He's a complete newcomer to the international frenzy that follows any Pacquiao fight, and though the latter has been focused on plenty beyond boxing over the past few years, he's still one of the best talents around. 

Bloody Elbow's Fraser Coffeen believes Pacquiao is still at least a couple levels above Horn: 

"Like I said, there are questions about Pacquiao's focus on boxing, and rightly so. But there's also absolutely no reason to think Jeff Horn is the fighter to translate that lack of focus into victory over the senator. Pacquiao remains one of the best talents in the game - neither Timothy Bradley nor Jessie Vargas are bad fighters by any wild stretch of the imagination, but Pac made both look levels below him just last year. Horn is pretty clearly a level below them, so it's hard to envision him having any more success."

Though Horn is Pacquiao's least notable opponent in quite some time, he's not taking the bout any less seriously. A loss or even just a ragged, poor showing in victory here would lead many to question his viability as one of the sport's superstars, and it would make it very difficult for him to get another premier opponent, should he choose to extend his career. 

Per BoxNation, the southpaw is getting at it in training: 

It's easy to see the fight going one of two ways: Pacquiao comes out guns blazing, looking to overwhelm Horn and prove that he hasn't lost his fire or much of his skill set. Or, knowing Horn has every reason to come out swinging while there is plenty more at stake for him, the Filipino fighter comes out tight and cautious and has to scrap his way to a points victory. 

A victory for Horn, of course, isn't out of the realm of possibility, but when it's all said and done, Pacquiao should come away with a points win with a three- or four-round cushion.

          PORTUGUESES CÚMPLICES DO GENOCÍDIO EM TIMOR-LESTE | revelado desde 2005   




A revelação de documentos secretos norte-americanos trouxe a verdade à tona sobre acontecimentos ocorridos em 1975 que comprovam a existência de conluio e indiferença de entidades portuguesas (civis e militares) na ocupação selvática levada a cabo por forças militares indonésias ao serviço de Suharto. Também esses traidores portugueses ficaram impunes. Conclui-se após a notícia veiculada pela Lusa em 2005, e que é recomendável não esquecer.

É costume em Portugal (assim como também em outros países) a culpa morrer solteira. Contudo isso não nos impede, em democracia, de recorrer às memórias da história para relembrar aos que são desses tempos mas ignoram e às novas gerações que no caso da invasão de Timor-Leste alguns portugueses têm a sua percentagem de responsabilidades perante o genocídio ocorrido naquele país, assim como a cobardia aviltante e desleixo em entregar de mão-beijada a Pátria de um povo e o próprio povo que Portugal colonizava (sendo por isso responsável).

É evidente que esses portugueses traidores e dignos de chafurdarem em chiqueiro adequado às suas práticas permanecem no secretismo e impunes. Nem a história de Portugal alguma vez fez constar quem são e o que fizeram na abrangência daquele fatídico período. Muito provavelmente alguns (ou todos) ainda foram condecorados por “bons serviços prestados à nação e a bem da nação”. Vómitos, é o que tais energúmenos merecem por tal comportamento. Decerto que inseridos numa componente política e militar. Se bem que certo é que não sabemos exatamente quem desses devemos apontar. A impunidade permite-lhes a opacidade conveniente.

Nem atualmente, mais de 40 anos volvidos, os nomes desses traidores, desses pulhas, e cúmplices dos crimes ocorridos em Timor a partir de 1975, por militares e polícias indonésias, foram divulgados. Passando-se uma esponja pelas responsabilidades e culpabilidades criminosas que lhes cabe.

Em abono da verdade deve ser facto real que na atualidade alguns deles já são ossadas ou pó. Isso não invalida que não seja escrita a história como se deve e que se lhes sejam retiradas condecorações se as tiveram recebido. Ao menos isso. Condecorar traidores é blasfémico para a história de Portugal e ainda muito mais aviltante para as centenas de milhares de vítimas timorenses.

Não são, não foram, os portugueses da plebe que agiram de modo tão sabujo e traidor dos povos timorense e português. Foram especificamente uns quantos, políticos e militares, pela certa. Quem? Quantos? Temos o direito de saber. Não só os portugueses mas também os timorenses interessados na verdade de toda a trama que causou cerca de 250 mil cadáveres timorenses.

Esta é a história pocilgueira de colonizadores cobardes e indiferentes aos destinos nefastos do povo por que se devia sentir e ser responsável. Essa seria a atitude correta e demonstrativa do respeito devido àquele povo. O colonialismo, os negreiros, decidiram ao contrário, cobardamente, com todo o desprezo pelas vidas humanas que então era fácil adivinhar serem varridas da face da terra, do Timor Lorosae. Assim se pode deduzir ao ler a seguir o que consta no jornal Público em 2005. Não só a Indonésia de Suharto é responsável pelo genocídio mas também os EUA e Portugal o são.

DOCUMENTOS SECRETOS | Portugal disse aos EUA que não se oporia à invasão de Timor-Leste

Em Março de 1975, Portugal já tinha informado os Estados Unidos não ser sua intenção resistir a uma possível invasão de Timor-Leste pela Indonésia, revelam documentos secretos divulgados ontem em Washingon. Isto apesar de uma análise militar norte-americana ter concluído que Portugal, com o mínimo de preparativos, tinha a capacidade de "encurralar" os indonésios em Díli, devido à falta de apoio dos timorenses a uma invasão Indonésia e às dificuldades do terreno.

Os documentos mostram a frustração indonésia para com a falta de resposta de Portugal à crescente crise em Timor durante 1975 e ainda a má informação sobre a situação política em Portugal por parte de um proeminente oficial indonésio.

Por outro lado, os memorandos revelam que em Novembro desse mesmo ano o actual ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros de Timor-leste, José Ramos Horta, contactou desesperadamente a embaixada norte-americana em Sydney, na Austrália, para apelar à " ajuda política e económica à Fretilin" e avisar que a invasão indonésia a Timor-Leste estava "iminente".

Por outro lado, os memorandos revelam que em Novembro desse mesmo ano o actual ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros de Timor-leste, José Ramos Horta, contactou desesperadamente a embaixada norte-americana em Sydney, na Austrália, para apelar à " ajuda política e económica à Fretilin" e avisar que a invasão indonésia a Timor-Leste estava "iminente".

Esta iniciativa de Ramos Horta foi feita por indicação do Comité Central da Fretilin e, segundo o documento confidencial do Departamento de Estado, o funcionário da embaixada norte-americana que recebeu Ramos Horta "ouviu a exposição sem comentários".

A Indonésia invadiu Timor-Leste em Dezembro de 1975 com conhecimento prévio dos Estados Unidos.

Arquivo de Segurança Nacional dos EUA revela documentos secretos

Os documentos foram dados a conhecer pelo Arquivo de Segurança Nacional (National Security Archive), um centro de estudos que se especializa em tentar angariar e publicar documentos governamentais, muitas vezes secretos.

A organização deu ontem a conhecer 39 documentos até agora secretos sobre os contactos diplomáticos em redor de Timor-Leste após a queda da ditadura em Portugal, que levou à descolonização.

Poucos meses após o 25 de Abril de 1974, o Governo indonésio começou de imediato a sondar os Estados Unidos sobre a posição de Washington quanto a Timor-Leste e a sua possível anexação por parte de Jacarta.

Henry Kissinger foi informado da invasão

Em Dezembro de 1974, um funcionário do Conselho de Segurança Nacional dos EUA enviou um memorando ao então conselheiro de Segurança Nacional, Henry Kissinger, informando-o de que num contacto com o adido de defesa da Indonésia ficou a saber que "o Governo indonésio estaria interessado em saber a atitude norte-americana para com Timor Leste (e, por implicação a nossa reacção à possível tomada de controlo pela Indonésia)".

O funcionário sugere a Kissinger que convide entidades indonésias para conversações sobre essa e outras questões, ao que Kissinger dá sua aprovação com uma assinatura no final do documento por baixo da palavra "aprovado".

Poucos meses depois, em Março de 1975, um memorando "ultra secreto" de três páginas endereçado a Henry Kissinger pelo mesmo funcionário do Conselho de Segurança Nacional avisa que a Indonésia receia que "uma retirada apressada dos portugueses deixará Timor enfraquecida sujeita aos instintos esquerdistas de uns poucos líderes do movimento independentista, líderes que os indonésios receiam serem influenciados por Pequim".

O documento informa estarem a crescer as pressões dentro da Indonésia para uma "acção militar directa". "Temos alguma informação indicando que estão a avançar preparativos para essa acção e uma informação de que Suharto deu ordens para incorporação de Timor português não mais tarde do que Agosto de 1975, pela força se necessário", lê-se no documento. 

"Entidades oficiais portuguesas informaram-nos de que não resistirão a qualquer uso da força por parte da Indonésia," acrescenta o documento, sem dar outros pormenores.

Posição da Austrália era "ambivalente"

O relatório "ultra secreto" descreve a posição da Austrália sobre a possível invasão Indonésia como "ambivalente".

O autor do documento afirma que o Departamento de Estado não sabe "qual a melhor política a seguir", afirmando que o embaixador norte-americano em Jacarta recomendou "uma política de silêncio".

O documento propõe que se o Governo indonésio voltar a inquirir sobre a posição norte-americana, a resposta seja manifestar "a esperança de que qualquer mudança no Timor português seja levada a cabo pacificamente".

Henry Kissinger concorda com esta posição e nesse mesmo mês o consulado dos Estados Unidos em Surabaya enviou um extenso telegrama secreto à embaixada norte-americana em Jacarta alertando para as dificuldades que o Exército Indonésio enfrentaria numa invasão de Timor-leste.

O telegrama é titulado "Estimativa das capacidades militares indonésias " e nele o autor avisa que os timorenses ligam a possível invasão indonésia "às memórias amargas da ocupação japonesa e não deverão fornecer guias ou informação" aos invasores.

"Os portugueses não praticaram o ‘apartheid’ e as relações inter-raciais são excelentes," diz o documento.

"Não existe qualquer possibilidade de simpatia por uma autoridade indonésia entre a elite timorense ou a população em geral," acrescenta o documento, que avisa que sem o apoio da população "operações militares no Timor português seriam um grande peso para as melhores forças armadas do mundo".

O documento faz depois uma análise detalhada do terreno de Timor-Leste, afirmando que, embora com planeamento e preparação Díli, possa ser tomada "por uma força militar capaz", as forças portuguesas, com apoio de organizações locais e com "um mínimo de preparativos defensivos e uns poucos dias de aviso, podem encurralar os indonésios em Díli sem gastarem muito sangue ou munições".

O documento analisa depois praias perto de Díli para um possível desembarque indonésio, concluindo que "a logística e manutenção seriam a chave para uma operação com sucesso contra Timor português e estes aspectos não têm sido no passado os pontos fortes dos indonésios".

"Como é que os portugueses tencionam cumprir as suas responsabilidades"

Em Agosto de 1975, a embaixada dos Estados Unidos em Jacarta enviou um documento "secreto" ao Departamento de Estado a relatar um encontro entre o embaixador dos Estados Unidos e o tenente general Yoga Sugomo, dos serviços secretos indonésios.

Neste encontro, Yoga delineou a situação em Timor-Leste e expressou frustração por não conseguir clarificar "o que o actual Governo português vê como as suas obrigações e responsabilidades no Timor português ou como é que os portugueses tencionam cumprir as suas responsabilidades".

"Yoga disse francamente que o Governo da Indonésia não sabia quem estava no poder em Portugal e não conseguia obter respostas de Lisboa ou de qualquer outra representação diplomática portuguesa em Macau, Hong Kong, Nova Iorque e noutros locais," diz o documento, que relata como o general Yoga considerou os "socialistas" portugueses como "pró-Moscovo" e os "comunistas" como "pró-Pequim".

Quando informado pelo embaixador norte-americano de que "os socialistas portugueses tendem a manter laços ideológicos com os socialistas europeus e não com Moscovo" e sobre como as "tendências" em Portugal eram "vistas como não comunistas e de dificuldades para os comunistas, o general Yoga repetiu meramente que, pelo que sabia, os "socialistas eram pró-Moscovo e os comunistas eram pró-chineses".

Interrogado pelo general indonésio sobre qual a posição dos Estados Unidos para com a situação em Timor-Leste, o embaixador respondeu que, "em primeiro lugar, o Governo dos Estados Unidos não está ansioso por se envolver de qualquer modo no Timor português", sendo o "principal interesse norte-americano o impacto de qualquer mudança no Timor português nas relações dos Estados Unidos com a Indonésia".

"Em segundo lugar, o Governo dos Estados Unidos não tem qualquer objecção à fusão de Timor português com a Indonésia, assumindo que é esse o desejo da população", acrescentou o diplomata, citado no documento.

O embaixador disse que poderia "haver problemas" se houver "uma tomada pela força" avisando que isso poderia pôr em perigo a ajuda militar à Indonésia.

O general indonésio insistiu numa opinião mais clara das autoridades norte-americanas, afirmando que "se daqui a quatro ou cinco anos Timor português for pró-soviético ou pró-chinês, então os problemas não serão só da Indonésia".

O embaixador norte-americano disse que a posição norte-americana não estava "inteiramente dependente do ramo executivo do Governo dos Estados Unidos".

"O ramo executivo pode compreender a situação, mas as suas mãos podem ficar amarradas, pelo que não é possível dizer exactamente qual seria a reacção dos Estados Unidos", disse o embaixador dos Estados Unidos.

No encontro, o general Yoga disse não acreditar que a fusão de Timor-Leste com a Indonésia pudesse angariar mais apoio entre a população timorense porque "só a Apodeti (Associação Popular Democrática de Timor) é que apoia isso".

O décimo segundo e último assunto

A 5 de Dezembro de 1975, nas vésperas de uma visita do então Presidente Gerald Ford a Jacarta, o Departamento de Estado enviou uma nota "secreta" a Henry Kissinger a mencionar a informação sobre a decisão da Indonésia de invadir Timor entre "6 e 8 de Dezembro".

O documento sugere que - embora seja de esperar que a Indonésia não tome qualquer acção antes da partida de Ford de Jacarta, para evitar um "sério embaraço" - seja enviada uma "mensagem urgente" às autoridades indonésias "pedindo que os indonésios não façam qualquer anúncio e não tomem medidas militares até bem depois da partida do Presidente de Jacarta".

Documentos preparados por Kissinger para o Presidente Ford, para a sua visita a Jacarta, indicam, contudo que para Washington Timor-Leste não era uma prioridade.
A situação em Timor-Leste é apenas o décimo segundo e último assunto do "briefing" ao Presidente norte-americano.

Discriminação de minorias étnicas aumentou desde a transição -- Académica

30 de Junho de 2017, 15:00

Hong Kong, China, 30 jun (Lusa) -- A discriminação racial em Hong Kong foi herdada da era colonial e agravou-se desde a transição para a China, considera a académica Puja Kapai, "desiludida" por o novo governo não refletir a diversidade da sociedade.

"Infelizmente, a discriminação em algumas instâncias, tem sido definitivamente mais pronunciada na era pós-transição", afirmou a professora da Direito da Universidade de Hong Kong, coautora do estudo "Status of Ethnic Minorities in Hong Kong 1997-2014".

De origem indiana, Puja Kapai observou que foi "um processo gradual", mas as mudanças introduzidas desde o governo do primeiro chefe do Executivo de Hong Kong Tung Chee-hwa nas políticas linguísticas "tornaram bastante mais difícil para as crianças das minorias étnicas entrarem em escolas públicas".

Kapai apontou como positiva "a abolição do sistema de escolas segregadas" -- as chamadas 'escolas designadas' --, já no mandato do chefe do Executivo cessante Leung Chun-ying.

"Pelo menos, os responsáveis do governo estão a enviar um sinal de que essa já não é uma prática aceitável em Hong Kong. Infelizmente, como estas crianças não conseguem entrar noutras escolas, acabam por ficar nas mesmas", disse.

Nesse aspeto deu o exemplo da discriminação a que são sujeitos os filhos dos não-falantes de chinês no processo de admissão ao ensino pré-primário com financiamento público: "Se fores uma criança de uma minoria que nunca teve a oportunidade de aprender a língua em casa, porque os teus pais não falam chinês, como é que vais conseguir fazer essa entrevista [de admissão]?".

Nos últimos 20 anos, foi positiva a entrada em vigor do Decreto sobre Discriminação Racial, em 2009, porque veio demonstrar que há algo errado e isso passou a "ser reconhecido na lei", apesar das falhas existentes no diploma, que não define claramente o conceito de tratamento desigual relativamente à língua e não inclui o estatuto de imigrante e a nacionalidade entre os motivos pelos quais a discriminação é proibida por lei.

Apesar de notar uma maior pré-disposição da chefe do Executivo eleita, Carrie Lam, "para ouvir" os problemas das minorias étnicas em Hong Kong, Puja Kapai observou que "não é inteiramente claro" se as recomendações deixadas no relatório que elaborou vão ser implementadas pelo próximo Executivo.

"Fiquei desiludida por ver que a composição do governo de Carrie Lam não reflete o tipo de diversidade que eu esperaria (...), em particular, porque uma das recomendações é a da inclusão das minorias étnicas ao mais alto nível", afirmou.

"Pelo menos tens de ter um representante para que as pessoas possam sentir que podem aspirar a juntar-se às fileiras do governo quando chegar a altura", acrescentou.

As minorias étnicas em Hong Kong representam 7,8% da população estimada em 7,33 milhões de pessoas, uma proporção que tem vindo a crescer nos últimos anos, segundo dados do Intercensos de 2016.

Nos Censos de 2011, estes grupos, maioritariamente formados por indonésios e filipinos, mas também por indianos, nepaleses, paquistaneses e tailandeses, entre outro, correspondiam a 6,38% dos 7,07 milhões de residentes.

O estudo de Puja Kapai concluiu que uma percentagem significativa (63%) dos grupos étnicos residentes na antiga colónia britânica há sete ou mais anos identifica-se com o país de origem e com a identidade de Hong Kong, algo que se verifica "sobretudo nas gerações mais jovens".

A académica destacou a necessidade de Hong Kong "dar mais atenção à diversidade de talentos" existentes na sociedade, sublinhando que os jovens das minorias étnicas podem "ser a chave para ajudar a abordar o problema do envelhecimento da população chinesa na cidade".

"Se não apetrecharmos estes jovens com as necessárias habilidades para serem bem-sucedidos e capazes, em termos de integração, corremos o risco de ter mais problemas do que já temos", disse.

"Se eles não formarem um saudável sentido de pertença não vão sentir que esta é uma sociedade para a qual querem contribuir e isso pode ser potencialmente perigoso e uma oportunidade perdida", acrescentou.

O novo governo liderado por Carrie Lam, a "número dois" do Executivo cessante, toma posse no sábado, dia em que se assinala o 20.º aniversário da transição de Hong Kong para a China.

Jornalistas encurralados entre a autocensura e o ativismo

30 de Junho de 2017, 15:00

Hong Kong, China, 30 jun (Lusa) -- A associação de jornalistas de Hong Kong alertou para a deterioração da liberdade de imprensa, atualmente pior que nunca, com profissionais encurralados entre a autocensura e o ativismo.

Em entrevista à Lusa, Shirley Yam, vice-presidente da associação, faz um diagnóstico negro: "Numa escala de 1 a 10, em 1997 diria que [a liberdade de imprensa] era 7 ou 8 (...). Agora diria que é 2 a 3, porque ainda temos acesso livre à Internet, o nosso direito à liberdade de imprensa e de expressão é protegido pela lei. Nenhum dos nossos jornalistas foi detido ou morto".

Yam diz que para se compreender o momento atual é preciso perceber que há dois "pontos de viragem" em Hong Kong após a transferência para a China: em 2003 e 2014.

Até à primeira data, Pequim deixou a cidade quase "entregue a si própria", mas as coisas mudaram depois do grande protesto que juntou meio milhão de pessoas contra uma lei para punir crimes de traição à pátria, secessão e subversão, o chamado Artigo 23.º.

"Uma analogia seria que antes de 2003 estavam [o Governo central da China] sentados no banco detrás do carro e depois passaram a estar sentados ao lado do condutor", comenta.

Um segundo momento foi o 'Occupy Central', protestos pró-democracia que paralisaram a cidade por 79 dias, em que [Pequim] passou "a ocupar o lugar do condutor".

"A mesma mudança aplica-se aos 'media'. Desde 2003 que se vê um maior controlo sobre os editores e os patrões, que são empresários com muitas ligações na China. [No passado] ninguém proibia que assim fosse, mas seria surpreendente se empresários da China comprassem 'media' em Hong Kong sem que perguntassem: 'Há objeção?', devido às implicações no princípio 'Um país, dois sistemas'", explica.

A vice-presidente da associação, com cerca de 700 membros, aponta vários exemplos de uma liberdade de imprensa diminuída, por uma pressão exercida não através da censura, mas do medo.

Em 2014, a imprensa de Camberra noticiou que o líder do Governo de Hong Kong teria recebido 50 milhões de dólares de Hong Kong (5,7 milhões de euros) de uma empresa australiana, existindo suspeitas de corrupção. "Surpreendentemente não foi a abertura das notícias da noite. No dia seguinte, dos 18 diários publicados em chinês e inglês, apenas quatro tinham a história na primeira página", recorda.

"Quais são os motivos para os editores de 14 jornais decidirem que este escândalo relacionado com dirigentes de topo de Hong Kong não era bom o suficiente para a primeira página? Uma resposta fácil é que se trata de autocensura", afirma.

A jornalista destaca também a agressão policiail do ativista Ken Tsang, durante uma noite do 'Occupy Central', cujas imagens correram mundo depois de serem transmitidas pela televisão local TVB.

Ainda que o guião da peça -- que descrevia a agressão -- tenha sido editado várias vezes, Yam acredita que a peça só foi emitida devido à hora. "O 'censor principal' estava a dormir, por isso conseguiram pôr no ar", comenta.

O caso teve consequências: "O editor (de madrugada) que aprovou a transmissão passou a investigador. Quase toda a gente relacionada com o caso foi castigada. Outro editor que estava lá, mas que não esteve envolvido com a decisão, foi afastado por não ter travado" a emissão.

A colunista do South China Morning Post conta que "o pior" veio depois. "O cargo do editor que virou investigador foi ocupado pelo antigo secretário-geral de um partido Pró-Pequim de Hong Kong. No espaço de poucos meses uma fatia significativa de ações da TVB foi vendida ao antigo vice-secretário-geral do Partido Comunista de Xangai", relata.

Com uma imprensa livre como peça essencial do princípio "Um país, dois sistemas", são as próprias fundações deste regime, que garante a Hong Kong e Macau um conjunto de liberdades acrescidas, que ficam corroídas.

Yam recorda como há cinco anos foi contactada por uma revista de Taiwan que lhe pediu ajuda para encontrar famílias que partilhassem as suas reflexões a propósito do 15.º aniversário da transferência.

"Abordei alguns amigos, de famílias de classe média. Das dez famílias que contactei, apenas uma aceitou. As restantes disseram coisas como: 'Não queremos tanta exposição', ou 'O meu marido trabalha na China', 'Eu trabalho na China'.

"Deviam estar muito infelizes com o que se passa, e têm medo de falar disso. Mas a lei promete-nos liberdade de expressão. E isto foi antes do movimento 'Occupy', antes dos livreiros de Causeway Bay", que publicavam livros sobre a vida privada dos líderes chineses e que desapareceram, reemergindo mais tarde sob custódia da polícia da China.

As divisões que se sentem hoje na sociedade de Hong Kong refletem-se no jornalismo.

"Quando há uma crescente autocensura, os jovens jornalistas tornam-se mais antagonistas, mais hostis contra o sistema. E isso não é bom. Quando te tornas hostil perdes a tua independência, o teu discernimento e isso compromete o teu trabalho e a confiança do público em ti", lamenta Yam.

No contexto da China, Hong Kong é vista como uma cidade com garra, um "David" feroz contra um "Golias" intocável.

Mas Shirley Yam receia que se trate mais de um caso de fama com pouco proveito: "Em Hong Kong, a opinião pública conta, mas não para mudar coisas. É suficiente para travar algo, para impedir o pior de acontecer, como o artigo 23.º, mas não o suficiente para tornar o mau em bom, como a reforma política".

Nunca haverá democracia sem questionar base constitucional -- Deputado

30 de Junho de 2017, 15:00

Hong Kong, China, 30 jun (Lusa) -- O deputado "localista" Hong Kong Eddie Chu Hoi-dick considera que o território só vai ter democracia se questionar a fundação constitucional da região administrativa especial, que nunca teve o aval da população.

"Nunca vamos conseguir ter democracia se não questionarmos a fundação constitucional ou a legitimidade do poder de Pequim sobre Hong Kong e da própria Lei Básica", defende, em entrevista à agência Lusa.

"O movimento democrático em Hong Kong nos últimos 20 a 30 anos (...) não questionou a fundação constitucional desta cidade. Aceitámos o [princípio] 'Um país, dois sistemas', aceitámos a Lei Básica, restringimos o conteúdo do movimento democrático ao sufrágio universal do chefe do Executivo. Isso foi um erro", afirma o deputado de 39 anos, que nas eleições de setembro conseguiu o mais elevado número de votos por círculo eleitoral, 84 mil.

O chamado "rei dos votos" sublinha que tal não significa que "a independência seja a única forma de conseguir democracia".

"Estou a dizer que qualquer estrutura constitucional deve ter o aval das pessoas de Hong Kong antes de ser implementada".

Ao invés de se cingirem ao "pequeno objetivo" do sufrágio universal, "a discussão sobre a fundação constitucional desta cidade deve ser renovada, seja uma nova versão do 'Um país, dois sistemas', ou independência", frisa.

Eddie Chu é um dos seis deputados 'localistas' eleitos em setembro para o Conselho Legislativo, que defendem -- uns de forma mais fervorosa que outros -- maior autonomia para a região em relação à China.

Apesar de Hong Kong ser há muito associada à luta pela democracia, Chu acredita que o movimento só começou verdadeiramente em 2014, com o "Occupy Central", protesto que paralisou a cidade por 79 dias. O trabalho feito até lá pelos 27 deputados pró-democracia "era restritivo" e "destinado a falhar".

Chu olha para este movimento social como um esforço conjunto, além-fronteiras, dos povos de países em contextos próximos, unidos pelo desejo de democracia, como Taiwan, Singapura, Tailândia, Malásia e a própria China.

"Quando olhamos para o contexto geral vemos que não é uma luta de uma cidade, mas de muitas cidades e muitos tipos de pessoas", defende.

O deputado, com 19 anos à data da transferência de Hong Kong, admite que há alguma nostalgia em relação ao tempo colonial, mas alerta que a China usa uma estrutura administrativa herdada dos britânicos.

Do ponto de vista da governação, os problemas mantêm-se: elevado fosso entre ricos e pobres, um 'boom' imobiliário que faz recear um colapso dos preços, falta de habitação, especialmente para os mais desfavorecidos.

"Estas questões estavam lá antes de 1997 e ficaram piores. O governo colonial não era muito poderoso, precisava do apoio de magnatas, profissionais, proprietários de terras. Estes tentavam proteger os seus interesses e 'sequestrar' os governadores. Isso continuou depois da transferência. Os intervenientes podem ter mudado, de britânicos para chineses, mas a estrutura está lá", explica.

Ainda que a transferência gerasse receio em muita gente -- principalmente depois da repressão violenta dos protestos de Tiananmen, em 1989 -- havia a ideia que, com o controlo do Partido Comunista, a sociedade se tornasse mais justa. "Mas foi o oposto", garante.

Existia um equilíbrio entre Londres e Pequim, em que o primeiro governava a cidade, mas tinha de ter em conta as preocupações do segundo. "Agora só temos um poder à nossa frente. Os movimentos sociais ou democráticos tornaram-se muito mais difíceis", diz.

Apesar das ideias provocadoras -- quase hereges para o Governo de Hong Kong, que não admite qualquer discussão sobre independência -- o antigo jornalista opõe-se a atos de violência e demonstra até algum desagrado com o termo 'localista', aplicado àqueles que defendem Hong Kong por oposição à China e uma maior autonomia ou até a independência.

Chu, que não conteve as lágrimas ao falar à imprensa após ser eleito, considera que o termo causa desunião e "não é muito útil tentar distinguir as pessoas de Hong Kong das pessoas da China, dentro do contexto de Hong Kong".

"Se realmente quisermos fazer progressos no nosso movimento democrático, temos de ser o mais inclusivos possível. Todos os residentes desta cidade fazem parte deste movimento", afirma.

Como inspiração no Ocidente, Chu olha para o partido espanhol Podemos, apesar de admitir que pode ter limitações.

"Nunca fui a Espanha, mas li artigos sobre o Podemos e achei que podia ser um exemplo de como pensar na organização de um movimento democrático. A mensagem principal do Podemos para Hong Kong é: Será que podemos ter uma organização interna mais aberta ao invés de elites e um modelo hierárquico?"- questiona.

Lutar apenas pela eleição direta do líder de Hong Kong tem sido "um erro", defende o deputado Eddie Chu Hoi-dick, para quem é preciso questionar a própria base constitucional da região que nunca teve o aval da população.

Fosso entre ricos e pobres atinge nível histórico em quase meio século

30 de Junho de 2017, 15:00

Hong Kong, China, 30 jun (Lusa) -- Hong Kong assinala os 20 anos de retorno à China com o maior fosso entre ricos e pobres em quase meio século e com perto de um milhão de pessoas na pobreza.

Quem sobrevive com magros subsídios e sem pensão de reforma tem poucos motivos para celebrar.

O coeficiente de Gini -- indicador utilizado para medir o índice de desigualdade -- subiu para o valor mais elevado em 46 anos, fixado em 0.539, numa escala de zero a um, em que o zero representa a igualdade.

Os dados referentes a 2016 - divulgados este mês - indicam que 10% das famílias mais ricas, com uma mediana salarial na ordem dos 112.450 dólares de Hong Kong (12.882 euros), ganhavam 44 vezes mais do que 10% dos mais pobres, com 2.560 dólares de Hong Kong (293 euros).

O governo atribuiu a disparidade crescente ao aumento de pequenos agregados familiares e ao impacto adverso do envelhecimento da população, cujo número de idosos -- fixado em 1,16 milhões -- aumentou 2,6% em cinco anos, correspondendo a 15,9% da população total.

Com 7,3 milhões de habitantes, o centro financeiro que se mantém na liderança das economias mais livres do mundo esconde por detrás dos arranha-céus uma elevada desigualdade, e graves problemas de habitação, cujos preços superam largamente os vencimentos. O salário mínimo na antiga colónia britânica é de 34,5 dólares de Hong Kong (3,88 euros) por hora.

Segundo o mais recente relatório sobre a pobreza (Hong Kong Poverty Rate Report 2015), a metrópole asiática reduziu o número de pobres de 1,34 milhões (ou 570 mil agregados) para cerca de 970 mil pessoas (ou 390 mil famílias).

A taxa de pobreza baixou de 19,7% para 14,3%, mas as carências dos mais necessitados continuam expostas até nas zonas mais ricas da cidade, onde é possível ver idosos a recolher cartão das lojas para reforçarem o magro orçamento mensal e muitos à procura de alimentos nos caixotes do lixo.

O governo tem mais do que um apoio para a terceira idade, mas nenhuma pensão de reforma universal.

A única verba que chega a todos com idade igual ou superior a 70 anos é de 1.325 dólares de Hong Kong (150 euros). Os restantes são calculados com base no património dos candidatos, podendo ir até 3,435 dólares de Hong Kong (389,6 euros) por mês, segundo os aumentos que entraram em vigor este ano.

O Hong Kong Council of Social Service, que "há mais de 20 anos" luta por uma pensão de reforma universal, propôs uma reforma mensal de 3.500 dólares de Hong Kong (392 euros) para os residentes com idade igual ou superior a 65 anos, disse à agência Lusa Anthony Wong, da direção do organismo. Depois de várias discussões e consultas no ano passado, o plano acabou rejeitado.

"Eles citam sempre os exemplos da Europa ocidental para passarem a mensagem de que [o plano de pensões de reforma] é incomportável", disse.

"Mas para nós é realista porque temos uma população a envelhecer e muitas pessoas têm doenças crónicas. Muitos, mesmo na classe média, podem vir a sofrer uma grande doença que os vai fazer gastar todo o dinheiro e bens que acumularam ao longo da vida. E se gastam todo o dinheiro e de repente ficam pobres, o que é que podem fazer?", questionou.

"Com um plano de reforma, mesmo que fiquem muito pobres, pelo menos teriam uma pensão de reforma", justificou.

O Hong Kong Council of Social Service mantém o objetivo em cima da mesa, mas tem dúvidas em relação à concretização do plano de pensões de reforma no próximo mandato.

"Vamos continuar a lutar por isto, mas a questão é que a chefe do Executivo eleita [Carrie Lam] foi quem recusou avançar com a ideia, por isso não sei, mas vamos ver", disse Anthony Wong.

"Temos uma população envelhecida. (...) Atualmente, uma em cada cinco pessoas é idosa, mas daqui a 20 anos será uma em cada três. Por isso, se cerca de 30% [da população] tiver pelo menos 65 anos, é de esperar que nas próximas duas décadas haja muito mais pessoas na pobreza", afirmou.

Em maio, o número de casos de Assistência Integral à Segurança Social (CSSA, na sigla em inglês) era de 236.259, num total de 345.666 pessoas, segundo dados oficiais. Os idosos a receber apoios totalizavam 144.906 casos.

          National champs! Women’s lacrosse takes the title   

Steph Colson ’19 scored with 2:57 left and Gettysburg rode out the remaining time after winning the final draw control to secure its second NCAA Division III Women’s Lacrosse Championship with a 6-5 victory over top-ranked The College of New Jersey Sunday at Kerr Stadium on the campus of Roanoke College.

Gettysburg (21-3) earned its second national championship in its first appearance in the title game since 2011. The seventh-ranked Bullets avenged a one-goal regular season defeat at the hands of TCNJ (19-2) earlier in the season by netting the final two goals of the game following a four-goal run by the Lions.

“It was a hard-fought victory,” stated Head Coach Carol Cantele ’83. “Two exceptional teams giving it their all, battling to the final finish. I'm so proud of the fight that our players had and their hustle and heart.”

Colson posted a pair of goals in the game and added a second national title to the family mantle with younger sister Lizzie helping the University of Maryland win the Division I title over Boston College Sunday afternoon. The Gettysburg sophomore took care of business late in the game, completing a clear attempt and beating her defender with a strong charge to the cage.

“Sometimes when you’re running down the field you just get tunnel vision and if you see one girl in front of you, you just have to take it,” noted Colson, who was named NCAA Tournament Most Valuable Player.

Emma Christie ’17 tallied two goals and goalie Shannon Keeler ’17 posted six saves and three ground balls. Keeler, attacker Caroline Jaeger ’17, and Cassie Smith ’18 were each named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team.

Gettysburg's second national crown did not come without its share of adversity. The Bullets carried a 4-1 lead into the break, but TCNJ did what great teams do in these situations by mounting a furious comeback. Mia Blackman kicked off a four-goal run with a free-position goal with 25:58 to play. Kathleen Jaeger, first-cousin to Gettysburg’s Jaeger, tallied the game-tying goal with 17 minutes left. The defenses pitched a shutout over the next nine minutes before Kathleen Jaeger snuck through the defense and ripped a shot into the net to make it 5-4 with 8:34 left.

“We knew they’re very good drivers and knew how to create opportunities for getting on the eight,” noted Cantele. “You could also see that moment of where they said this is not happening. They’re one of the most competitive teams we go up against year-in and year-out.”

The Bullets, ever confident in their skills and abilities, did not fold under the pressure and it was a first-year that helped set the stage for a thrilling end. After Caroline Jaeger controlled the ball for Gettysburg, Courtney Patterson ’20 found a seam in the defense and forced her way to the front of the cage for the equalizer with 7:36 to go.

“I think it speaks to their mentality all year,” said Cantele. “They know the game isn’t over until the final whistle blows. They’ve focused all season on being in the now and thinking strong and being fully present.”

After getting beat 5-1 on draws in the first half, Gettysburg grabbed 6-of-7 draw controls in period two. The Bullets managed to grab the ensuing draw and ran two minutes off the clock before a turnover. The miscue didn’t prove costly as Ali Gorab ’18 caused a turnover and Keeler recovered the ground ball.

That set the stage for Colson’s late-game heroics in just her fifth game back from an injury that sidelined her seven weeks. Katie Willis ’18 fought her way to the final draw control to seal the victory. Gettysburg’s passing was pristine as the team evaded the last-ditch effort to regain possession by TCNJ.

“This is an absolute dream,” said Keeler. “But it came with a lot of hard work and tears, and ups and downs, and adversity. I’m not that surprised because I knew this team was special. There’s just some sort of chemistry that I’d never experienced before. Everyone was just so motivated by the same vision.”

After beating Trinity (Conn.) College 8-4 in the semifinals on Saturday, Gettysburg carried that momentum into its sequel with the Lions. The Bullets turned in the first two goals with Colson scoring the first unassisted and Christie the second on a free-position goal. Amanda Muller scored for TCNJ to make it 2-1, but Gettysburg shut down the Lions’ attack as Keeler recorded five of her saves in the opening half.

“Our mindset just followed from yesterday,” said Caroline Jaeger. “We just wanted to play exactly how we did when we were up yesterday. That second-half run against Trinity was big for us and we just tried to keep that same mindset going into today.”

Christie tacked on another free-position score and Caroline Jaeger laced a free-position shot of her own into the goal to give Gettysburg a 4-1 leading heading into the break.

Following the game, Cantele was quick to point out the leadership of her five seniors – Christie, Jaeger, Keeler, Macauley Mikes, and Katelyn Neillands. After the final horn sounded, the five seniors were among the first to grab the national trophy and hoist it high.

“They’ve been an outstanding group,” said Cantele about her senior class. “They’ve all led in very different ways and different manners, which is outstanding because people respond differently to types of leadership.”

Mikes finished with two ground balls and one caused turnover and wrapped up her collegiate career having appeared in a program-record 86 games. Neillands tallied one ground ball and a caused turnover.

Gettysburg tied the program record for victories in a season and shattered the program and conference record for goals against average at 4.78. Keeler finished with the lowest single-season GAA by a player at 5.00, while closing her career with a record 66 wins.

The Bullets defeated two No. 1 teams this season for the first time in program history. Gettysburg took out No. 1 Franklin & Marshall College 12-6 on April 5. The Orange and Blue only had one victory over a No. 1 team prior to 2017.

The team posed for a multitude of pictures after the game with tears and smiles aplenty among the players and staff members. It was a dream season for Gettysburg, and one that will not be forgotten any time soon.

“It couldn’t happen to a greater group of individuals,” said Cantele. “It couldn’t have happened to a better institution. They’ve represented our institution so famously, with passion and energy. It was a great experience from start-to-finish.”

1.  Em agosto de 1961, foi aprovado o celebre "aerograma", considerado um impresso-carta, isento de porte e de sobretaxa aérea, e que era constituído por 1 folha de papel com o peso máximo de 3 gramas, dobrável em 2 ou 4 partes, mas de forma que as suas dimensões depois da dobragem não excedessem os limites máximos de 150 x 105 mms, e mínimos de 100x70 mms. Dele apenas podia constar o nome, posto, e número e o indicativo de SPM atribuído. 

Na Guiné, o aerograma era carinhosamente conhecido como "bate-estradas" ou "corta-capim".

No final da guerra, o Movimento Nacional Feminino, criado também em 1961, tal como o SPM, estava a imprimir e distribuir 32 milhões de aerogramas por ano. Durante os anos de guerra a expedição média diária foi de 10 toneladas de correio (!!!) para um total transportado de 21 mil toneladas (incluindo aerogramas, cartas, encomendas postais, valores declarados...).

 O SPM terá sido um dos serviços militares que melhor funcionou durante toda a guerra colonial...

2.  O Correio durante a Guerra Colonial 

 por José Aparício  [cor inf ref, ex-cmdt CCAÇ 1790, Madina do Boé, 1967/69]

 [com a devida vénia ao portal Guerra Colonial 1961-74, da A25A - Associação 25 de Abril];  revisão e  fixação de texto: LG]


Com a deslocação para África de grandes efectivos militares a partir de 1961, as Forças Armadas Portuguesas foram confrontadas com a necessidade óbvia de fazer chegar "O Correio" a todos os locais onde estivessem estacionadas unidades militares. Naturalmente, a grande maioria das forças do exército encontrava-se dispersa no mato em grandes áreas, onde não havia estações dos correios normais, muitas vezes em locais isolados e inóspitos, alguns de muito difícil acesso.

 Do antecedente o Exército Português tinha a experiência vivida na Flandres durante a 1ª Grande Guerra, quando foi criado, aprovado, e posto em execução o "Regulamento do Serviço Postal do Corpo Expedicionário Português - CEP" que serviu as tropas portuguesas em França em 1917 e 1918.

No final dos anos 50 início da década de 60, houve necessidade de tornar operacional a Chefia do Serviço Postal da Divisão quando o Exército constituiu e tornou operacional a divisão "Nuno Álvares" integrada no SHAPE. O activar deste serviço nas grandes manobras que então ocorriam durante todo o mês de Setembro em Santa Margarida, e que envolviam cerca de 10,000 militares, aconteceu nas manobras de 1960.

Para exercer as funções de chefia desse serviço postal, o Estado Maior do Exército requisitou aos serviços dos Correios um seu funcionário qualificado que graduou em Capitão, e que desempenhou com toda a eficiência a sua missão. Terminadas as manobras este quadro dos CTT regressou à sua anterior situação.

 Quando em 23 de Junho de 1961 foi decidido criar um serviço de correios militar, o general Câmara Pina, Chefe do Estado Maior do Exército [CEME], requisitou de novo aos CTT o mesmo funcionário a quem, depois de graduar de novo em capitão, encarregou expressamente de organizar e pôr em funcionamento um Serviço Postal Militar no Ultramar. Nasceu assim o Serviço Postal Militar (SPM) tendo sido o seu primeiro responsável e Chefe do Serviço o capitão miliciano graduado Ernesto Lourenço Dias Tapadas, que até ao fim desenvolveu um trabalho notabilíssimo.

 Aproveitando a experiência adquirida pelo Exército português na 1ª Grande Guerra, adaptou o que achou por conveniente, percebeu rapidamente todo a problemática envolvente, e estabeleceu o seu plano de acção eliminando com muita habilidade e diplomacia todas as dificuldades que foram surgindo com os 2 colossos monopolistas, que eram os CTT Continentais e os CTTU do Ultramar, e também com os serviços de Alfândega metropolitanos e ultramarinos.

 A definição dos códigos de endereços foi a tarefa imediata a que a Chefia do SPM se dedicou e que se tornou determinante para o lançamento do serviço. Esses códigos eram constituídos por 4 dígitos, dos quais os primeiros 3 definiam a unidade militar, e o ultimo a província ultramarina. Assim, inicialmente o digito 1 correspondia à Índia, o 2 a S Tomé, o 3 a Macau, o 4 a Moçambique, o 5 a Timor, o 6 a Angola, o 7 a Cabo Verde, o 8 à Guiné, e o 9 à Metrópole.

 Devido ao cada vez maior número de unidades em Africa, o critério inicial teve de ser rapidamente alterado, e a atribuição dos IP (indicativos postais) passou a ser feita, pelo Estado Maior do Exército [EME] para as unidades mobilizadas no continente, e pelos respectivos Comandantes Militares nos diferentes territórios para as unidades ali organizadas, mantendo-se sempre o ultimo digito definidor do território de destino.

 Um problema entretanto surgido foi com os navios da Armada que quando saíam das suas localizações iniciais, e navegavam para outros territórios, e de e para a metrópole, recebiam a correspondência com atraso. Para resolver o problema, o 4º dígito 1, que inicialmente dizia respeito a Índia, passou a ser atribuído aos navios da Armada, em substituição dos dígitos recebidos inicialmente conforme os locais onde se encontravam Após algum tempo, a atribuição de todos os IP foi atribuída a Chefia do SPM.

Entretanto em Agosto de 1961, depois de difíceis e complicadas reuniões entre o Secretariado Geral da Defesa Nacional , a Administração Geral dos Correios, Telégrafos e Telefones (CTT) e os Correios Telégrafos e Telefones do Ultramar (CTTU), foi aprovado o celebre "aerograma", considerado um impresso-carta, isento de porte e de sobretaxa aérea, e que era constituído por 1 folha de papel com o peso máximo de 3 gramas, dobrável em 2 ou 4 partes, mas de forma que as suas dimensões depois da dobragem não excedessem os limites máximos de 150 x 105 mms, e mínimos de 100 x 70 mms.

 As regras estabelecidas para o endereço a colocar em toda a correspondência a enviar para as unidades expedicionárias obrigavam a que dele apenas constasse o nome, posto, e número e o indicativo de SPM atribuído.

A organização geral do SPM consistia numa Chefia em Lisboa, pelo menos uma Estação Postal Principal em cada território, e dentro destes tantas Estações Postais Secundárias quantas as que se revelaram necessárias face ao respectivo movimento postal, e ao número de PMC (Postos Militares de Correio), cada um destes apoiando até 2500 homens.

No fim da cadeia, havia em cada unidade um Encarregado da Delegação Postal da Unidade (EDPU) normalmente o(s) cabo(s) escriturário(s) da(s) unidade(s), que recebiam formação específica para essas funções.

 Em 21 de Julho de 1961 entrou em funcionamento em Luanda a Estação Postal Militar Principal nº 6, menos de um mês depois da criação do SPM! Quando se iniciaram as hostilidades na Guiné e em Moçambique já ali se encontrava completamente operacional o SPM.

 O SPM foi um serviço totalmente constituído por milicianos, nele tendo servido 202 oficiais e 504 sargentos. O seu quadro foi constituído inicialmente apenas por funcionários dos CTT e CTTU, graduados em oficiais e sargentos conforme a sua posição hierárquica nos seus serviços. A partir de 1966 o recrutamento passou a fazer-se entre oficiais e sargentos milicianos da metrópole a quem era dado um curso específico no Centro de Instrução do SPM no Forte do Bom Sucesso em Lisboa.

 O serviço prestado pelo SPM foi notável. Muito para além dos números impressionantes de milhões de aerogramas, cartas, encomendas, vales do correio e valores declarados, por eles tratados e enviados; durante os anos de guerra a expedição média diária foi de 10 toneladas de correio (!!!) para um total transportado de 21 mil toneladas. É que nunca falhou, mesmo nos locais mais perigosos, difíceis e isolados, e os prazos médios entre a expedição e a recepção eram mínimos.

 Só quem ali viveu esses tempos pode testemunhar o alvoroço e a alegria da chegada do correio, o conforto e ajuda que todos sentíamos pelas noticias da família e dos amigos.

 O SPM foi extinto em 10 de Julho de 1981, cessando toda a sua actividade em 31 de Dezembro de 1981. Com a discrição com que iniciaram os seus trabalhos, assim os terminaram, como se nada de especial tivessem feito, naturalmente sem reconhecimento público assinalável. O SPM que escolheu como divisa do seu guião "A vida por uma mensagem", bem a honrou até ao fim.

 Ao Capitão Miliciano Ernesto Tapadas, e a todos os que integraram o SPM durante toda a sua existência, é devida uma enorme gratidão por milhões de portugueses; por todos os que, de 1961 a 1975, serviram na Índia, em África, em Macau e em Timor, e também por todas as suas famílias que em Portugal mitigavam as saudades e as suas angústias com as noticias dos seus filhos tão longe. Os que estiveram na guerra nunca os esquecem!

          Hong Kong voltou a ser da China há vinte anos   
Em 1982, a China e o Reino Unido iniciaram conversações para a devolução da soberania sobre Hong Kong à primeira. Um acordo assinado em 1984, em Pequim,se decidiu que o território voltasse a soberania chinesa a 1 de julho de 1997. Em conformidade com o acordado, o regresso de Hong Kong à soberania chinesa, após 156 anos de administração colonial britânica, deu-se às 00.00 horas daquele dia.
O agora território chinês tem o status de Região Administrativa Especial, de acordo com a fórmula "um país, dois sistemas", que também também aplicada a Macau, a partir de 20 de dezembro de 1999. Deste modo, o território continua a ser um porto livre e um centro financeiro internacional, e, exceto nas áreas da defesa e da política externa, tem um autonomia interna,inclusive a fiscal. Foi mantida a liberdade de imprensa.

1. OVERVIEW OF CHINA
China, with a population of over 1.3 billion and a land area of 9.6 million km2 , has a potential market for business development. China’s GDP increases by double digits in the past few years, since the strong economic development enhanced by foreign demand and domestic consumption. Now more and more investors rush to China for business setup and market share in form of WFOE or joint venture, owing to China’s market, labor and policy advantages.

2. THE CONCEPT OF WFOE
WFOE stands for wholly foreign owned enterprise, which is a Limited liability company wholly owned by the foreign investor(s). WFOE means the foreign investors(including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) established the enterprise within Chinese territory, in accordance with 《PRC Wholly Foreign founded Enterprise Law》, with capital provided solely by the foreign investor. The foreign investors refer to the foreign enterprise, individual or partner. (Including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).
In China, WFOE were originally conceived for encouraged manufacturing activities that were either export orientated or introduced advanced technology. However, with China's entry into the WTO, these conditions were gradually abolished and the WFOE is increasingly being used for service providers such as a variety of consulting and management services, software development and trading as well.

4. What's the meaning of "SHAREHOLDER, DIRECTOR, SUPERVISOR AND LEGAL REPRESENTATIIVE" for a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE)in China?

5. What kind of BUSINESS SCOPE you could have, and what you can not do?

6. How much Registration Capital you should have for a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE)?

7. What's the meaning of "Preferential Policy(or Pre-approval Policy)" for WFOE in CHINA?

          Here’s What Happened When I Debated Nazi Richard Spencer   

From Idavox - by Lacy MacAuley

We are not going to reach common ground, and I’ll try not to punch him. By Lacy MacAuley.

“Antifa never take showers,” was one of the first things that Richard Spencer, the country’s most notorious Nazi, said to insult me. He was facing the interviewer, Chris Kilmer of the ABC National News program, 20/20. The on-camera debate had just begun.*

“So, if antifascist activists only took showers more frequently, you would respect them more?” I interrupted. He said yes. “This is the most ridiculous ad hominem attack,” I laughed.

“Yes, it is an ad hominem attack,” said Spencer.

“You do realize that the cultures that you idolize — feudal England, feudal Germany — you know that they didn’t have showers, right?” I said.

Then Spencer smiled, and I wished I hadn’t said anything remotely funny. It was the sinister, creepy smile of someone with dark thoughts of murdering people, or at least denying people the right to exist. Spencer is, after all, a white supremacist who promotes genocide. Depending on who you ask, he is a rich white boy who is most famous either for coining the term “Alt Right,” or for getting sucker punched by a black-mask-wearing protester in Washington DC at Donald Trump’s Inauguration, a punch celebrated around the world. Facing him down for a debate felt necessary, but the proximity was unsettling.

Antifascist activists, or “antifa,” stand against fascist, totalitarian, authoritarian regimes and systems. That’s why we protest things like capitalism, the police, oppressive governments, and global institutions like the International Monetary Fund or the G20. Anyone who stands against oppression, anyone who thinks power should rest with the people, is probably antifascist. That includes people of color, Muslims, immigrants, women, the LGBTQIA+ community, trans youth, indigenous people, and anyone who wants to bring power back to everyday people.

Lately, many of us have been increasingly concerned about the fascist right-wing movements that promote white supremacy, white nationalism, police violence, racism, anti-Islamophobia, anti-migration, anti-feminism, gender normativity, and other hateful things. You’ve seen more antifa in the streets lately, protesting the far right, mobilizing to protect people’s right to exist.

The debate with Spencer had been arranged by the 20/20 news program. The news producers had been looking for someone who identifies as “antifa” to debate the unsavory character. I am one of a small number of antifascist activists who have been “doxed,” and have been subjected to a constant droll of online right-wing harassment. (People wonder why we wear masks, but look what happens when we don’t. Constant harassment. Plus the risk that police will decide to arrest you simply for being an activist, and find something to charge you with. Yep, that happens.) Since I’ve also been a media activist, my contact information is available. The producers called me up.

As a member of the DC Antifascist Coalition who has helped to organize protests outside of Spencer’s conference events, I decided I was prepared to debate the guy, but was conflicted about whether this would give him a platform. It was apparent, however, that the news program would be showing Spencer extensively anyway, whether there was someone to counter him or not. I mentioned the debate request to a few local antifascist activists and to Daryle Lamont Jenkins of the One People’s Project. “Break legs everywhere. You’re gonna be great,” said one fellow organizer. So, I said yes. Honestly, I couldn’t tell if the news producers were searching for someone who could face him down in words or the hard currency of knuckle sandwiches. Several friends asked if I wanted company, but I declined. I wanted to focus. I went alone.

I arrived on time, at a picnic table in Rock Creek Park, Washington DC, on Thursday, June 22, 2017. It was a hot day and the gnats were a small issue. Spencer was almost half an hour late. After he arrived, I continued to wait and chat with the producers, since apparently Spencer needed makeup due to some sort of welts on his neck. (Fight club training, I wondered?) By the time everyone was assembled, a five-person news crew was present with two giant news cameras. Spencer had brought a young flunkee with a “fashy” haircut and a sneer.

Spencer reached out to shake the interviewer’s hand, then turned to me. I declined the handshake: “I agreed to speak with you, not shake your hand.”

Early in the debate, I was of course asked about the time that Spencer was punched. I’d helped to organize the protests where the punch took place but hadn’t witnessed it myself. “Don’t you think that was violent?” asked the interviewer.

“In certain circumstances,” I said, “I believe that a sucker punch can be a symbolic act.” The way I see it, It’s like breaking a bank window or burning an American flag. This is the “propaganda of the deed,” an act that does not permanently damage anyone but sends a clear message. After all, it isn’t just activists who bounced around whether the act was right or not. It was The New York Times and a large body of the general public, some of whom enthusiastically made meme after meme of the punch. People understand that it is satisfying to punch a bully, such as a man who seeks to crush people of color, or anyone he declares unfit, under his heel. Our US military spent World War II fighting Nazis. Fighting Nazis has been canonized by everyone from Captain American to Wonder Woman to Indiana Jones. So how is this one punch wrong?

“So punching me is a symbolic act?” snorted Spencer incredulously. I turned to him. What I said next was even more satisfying.

“You have called for actual genocide. Actual genocide. When it comes to whether someone does or does not sucker punch you, you have no moral credibility,” I said. After all, if Spencer’s violent agenda calls for genocide, it’s clearly hypocritical to cry about being punched.

“Oh, I don’t support genocide,” he blurted out. I looked hard at him. I couldn’t tell if he actually believed that or if it was just a survival mechanism to get him through the debate. Here he was, denying his most controversial views. He hasn’t just called for genocide once, he’s supported it publicly many times throughout his career as a white supremacist.

“I have never called for genocide,” he said again.

Luckily, legal experts have defined what genocide actually means. The United Nations has defined genocide as acts perpetrated against a group, such as a racial group. This was codified in the Genocide Convention of 1948. These acts include: “Killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” That treaty, by the way, also makes illegal “direct and public incitement to commit genocide.” Just saying.

Spencer supports government programs of forced sterilization, or at least forced contraception, to prevent births among people of color. Here is what he said to Salon reporter Lauren M. Fox in 2013 on the topic of genetics:

“We are undergoing a sad process of degeneration… We will need to reverse it using the state and the government. You incentivize people with higher intelligence, you incentivize people who are healthy to have children. And it sounds terrible and nasty, but there would be a great use of contraception.”

So, he believes that “the state and the government” should reverse genetic “degeneration.” Spencer believes in the same tired eugenics of Nazi Germany. He believes in the genetic “inferiority” of certain people. Followers of the “Alt Right” movement believe in the debunked science of IQ tests as predictors of intelligence. (IQ tests tend to more accurately measure how uncreatively young minds have assimilated into the capitalist system.) So when Spencer says that he wants to preserve people with “higher intelligence,” he means he wants people of color to use “contraception” as part of a government program. That’s forced sterilization based on race, which is a form of genocide.

Also, “peaceful ethnic cleansing” isn’t a thing. No, ethnic cleansing is always violent — at best as violent as a concentration camp, or as violent as forcing someone to wear a straightjacket in a white rubber room. But Spencer called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing” in a 2013 speech at the American Renaissance conference. Guess what? That too is genocide.

It doesn’t matter whether Spencer has ever used the word “genocide.” What matters is that his support for forced sterilization and “ethnic cleansing” is defined as support for genocide. And yes, forced sterilization is cruel and horrible and all of those things, and he would like to use it against people he deems genetically unfit. To him, that means people of color.

But to make his support for genocide painfully obvious, Spencer’s website AlternativeRight.com actually published an article entitled “Is Black Genocide Right?” that tries to make the case for killing people of color. Making a delusional “it’s us or them” argument, the author, who is presumably white, clearly suggests that all black people should perish. And to be honest, does it surprise anyone that Spencer, who has led Nazi salutes and said, “Let’s party like it’s 1933” (the year Hitler came to power) when Trump was elected, supports genocide? Nope.

So yes, he has supported genocide. Actual genocide.

Of course, in the real world, people who write vile hate speech must absolutely be made to defend their words. You can’t just deny that you said things. Hate has consequences.

Somewhere uphill of the picnic table, a woodpecker was calling a wavering alarm call. Children were riding bicycles through the park. I took a deep breath.

“Everyone here is capable of doing research on what you have said,” I smiled. “So, for the sake of this debate, I am going to have to just assume that you are not being truthful. Yes, you have called for genocide.”

“So you think that punching me is just a symbolic act?” asked Spencer. “Then why don’t you do it right now.” He actually smiled his creepy smile, and sort of wiggled his shoulders in a theatrical way. I guess his theatrical demeanor is not surprising for someone who studied music in college. Just like it took studying art to make Hitler a Hitler.

“Yeah. No. I am not going to do that,” I said. The thing is, wanting to punch him and wanting to be seen punching him are two different things. I’m sure he would have loved for me to take a swing, so that he could bolster his fame and also send me to jail. Maybe that’s what the news producers wanted too. But there I was using my real name in front of two massive cameras, not to mention Spencer’s young bodyguard sneering at me from behind the interviewer. The other thing standing behind Spencer and the entire far right is layers of privilege that allow them to receive favorable treatment from law enforcement, the news media, and onlookers. So yeah. I’m not going to take that swing.

During the debate, we easily traced the edges of the things that we will never, ever agree on. Spencer believes that you can deny some people their fundamental right to exist. Spencer doesn’t think it’s important that governments prioritize individual rights, but is willing to jump on the bandwagon of using the concept of free speech to promote his movement. Furthermore, I am an anarchist. And like many people who are anarchist or antifascist or both, I will never accept the “might makes right” philosophy that guides the lives of those who have given up hope. Individual respect and autonomy, community empowerment and embracing diversity, and the right to live with dignity — these are the things shape my worldview. I do not believe the people with the strongest use of force or the best guns win in the end, though everyone has a right to self defense and community defense. Power corrupts and the powerful perish, and the course history is guided by the people who create a way forward with love and courage, despite corrupt rulers and oppressive systems, even if we are not always the ones in their history books. So no. Big surprise: I will never agree with the Nazis.

A bizarre point of the interview came when I made the case for embracing diversity. “Some of the best elements of our society have come from different people coming together in the spirit of openness, of feeling out the edges of experience, of innovation. Humanity is at its best when we have open exchanges and learn from each other.”

“I agree with you,” said Spencer implausibly. “I think we need to stop spending money on equality and start spending money on space travel —“

“Whoa, now we’re taking about space travel?” I interrupted. I could not help laughing. I looked at the producer behind the cameraperson, who was also chuckling. “I think this conversation just went out of orbit,” I said.

Rather than double down on his extraterrestrial point, Spencer abruptly abandoned the topic and came back to multiculturalism. He doesn’t like diversity, and is threatened by babies that don’t bear his skin tone. Shocker.

In another point of the interview, the interviewer asked me whether antifascist activists were opposed to free speech, because we have protested at events with some of the least desirable characters on the far right — Milo Yiannopoulos, who has since fallen from grace for comments on sexual abuse of children, Ann Coulter, who by the way cancelled her own event in the end, and of course Spencer and his band of Nazi-saluting white boys — effectively getting those events shut down. These far right speakers claim their events have something to do with free speech, instead of what they are really doing, which is mobilizing support for denying people the right to exist. Now that they have a direct line into the White House, their threats are credible.

“We protest at their events precisely because we have listened, we have heard them, and we believe they pose a credible threat to our right to exist,” I said. “As such, it is our duty to oppose them.”

What did Spencer think of the protests outside of right wing events? And the idea of physical clashes with antifascist activists?

“I don’t think we should throw the first punch,” said Spencer adamantly, raising his voice and gesticulating wildly, “But when they punch us, we should punch back.”

I guess Spencer didn’t see the irony here. He was on the receiving end of perhaps the best-publicized punch that has occurred this year in the United States. Did he punch back? Nope. He held his chin in his hand and glanced behind him as he high-tailed it out of there.

I also think we need to punch back, so to speak.

“The thing is, when the far right is mobilizing against us, when our rights are under attack, we will fight back,” I said. “We will be in the streets.”

What did I think of the recent shooting of US Congressman Steve Scalise?

“I do not endorse this shooting,” I said. I then pontificated a bit, including on what the definition of violence was in a political context in which people are dying at the hands of the US government. “Just because you can outsource your violence, just because you are not the one holding the baton or forcing people out of their homes, doesn’t mean that [what Spencer supports] is not violence.”

“She is avoiding the issue,” said Spencer.

I guess the violence he endorses is the kind in which rich white boys like him do not have to get their hands dirty. No, he can mobilize for the most violent policies of genocide imaginable, while never doing anything but looking clean and sharp in a collared shirt, standing just far enough away from the violence to not get splattered with blood. There’s avoiding the issue. Spencer is avoiding the issue of his violence to the point of delusion.

A recurring theme of the debate was that Spencer kept accusing me of dodging questions. But the world is nuanced. It made me hyper aware that he saw the world in his simplistic, black-and-white terms, so to speak. He could not even sit still while I went more deeply into the issues at hand. Perhaps he was just waiting for me to repeat the watered-down talking points he expected an antifascist activist to say, thereby confirming his worldview. But when I did not play his confirmation bias game, he could not even comprehend what I was saying. Whenever I would more deeply address a topic in question, to suss out nuances, he would lose patience. In addition to wondering about his black-and-white worldview, I couldn’t help but wonder how often he actually sat and listened to the ideas of women, femmes, or trans people, in his whites-only, very male world. Probably not a lot.

“One thing that we haven’t hit on is the overlap between the ‘Alt Right’ movement and the so-called ‘manosphere,’” I said. Manosphere adherents such as Mike Cernovich hold that women need a strong man in their lives and claim that men’s rights are under attack, instead of being continually upheld by a global system that tends to value anyone who is male above women, femmes, or trans people. The far right group “Proud Boys,” whose followers are cut from the same cloth as Spencer’s, has said that “women should be feminine and polite.” Spencer, for his part, has made many rapey and misogynist comments, such as when he told Rolling Stone Magazine, “At some part of every woman’s soul, they want to be taken by a strong man.” He also tweeted, “Women should never be allowed to make foreign policy.”

So opposing Spencer and his movement is, to me, a matter of self defense. I am not shrinking back into a little gender role in his little gendered world. If he and his movement want women back in little subservient roles, they will have to use either violence or the threat of violence to make that happen. That didn’t stop him from repeating the tired mantra that it is antifascists, not the far right, that is violent.

“I’d like to bring this back to reality,” I said. “Their side has all of the guns. Their side has the police and the military. The only person who is antifa or ‘Alt Right’ who has ever been shot is on our side, when a MAGA-hat wearing guy shot a person who identified as an antifascist activist in Seattle in January.”

I was referring to antifascist activist Joshua Dukes, who was de-escalating at a protest outside a Milo Yiannopoulos event when he was shot by either Mark or Elizabeth Hokoana, a married couple and Trump supporters. The Hokoanas had come armed with mace and a handgun. Mark Hokoana had said on Facebook earlier that day, that he was going to be at the event armed and would look for an excuse to “wade through their ranks and start cracking skulls.” Luckily, Dukes survived, minus a few organs, after a harrowing ordeal and multiple surgeries.

“See, she only cares about her fellow antifa,” said Spencer after I had mentioned the shooting, though I’d been referring again and again to protecting the right to exist for all of the marginalized groups who Spencer would like to see die. I read his response as him not having a decent point to conclude that antifa was more violent than his side.

At one point, near the very end of the debate, Spencer looked at me, probably seeing only a white woman, no more and no less, a package of genes, a white-baby machine, and said something to the effect of, “You need to find out who you are.” This was a reference to the “Alt Right” slogan, “become who you are,” the slogan that wants to reduce each one of us to our race like it’s a Slurpee flavor with no mixing allowed.

“Oh I know exactly who I am,” I put my hand down on the picnic table for emphasis. “I am someone who will never accept the idea that we need to be delineated and separated into little nation-states based upon our race. I don’t believe most people want to live in a little nation-state where everyone looks the same and everyone thinks the same. That is oppressive, it is a fascist state, and furthermore, it is exceptionally boring.”

He looked at me with a creepy look in his eyes. “Oh, it won’t be boring,” he said, complete with a little eyebrow raise as he said “boring.” I wasn’t sure if this was his attempt at sexual innuendo, but it did have the effect of making me want to punch him all over again.

“Yes, it will be very boring,” I said.

At some point, near the very end of the interview, he said, with a self-congratulating, masturbatory flourish, “I give your life meaning!”

I cringed. “Excuse me? I have been an activist for nearly all of my adult life, and I have been organizing as an anarchist for nearly a decade,” I said. “As an anarchist, I care about de-constructing power. Since your movement has been gaining power, and posing a credible threat, I have cared about opposing you.” I looked at the interviewer, Chris Kilmer. “If tomorrow, you were the one gaining power and posing a credible threat, I would be opposing you.” Kilmer nodded back in understanding. I spoke of the larger body of antifascist work, work that people are doing every day. Some people are opposing fascism just by surviving another day in a system that is stacked against them. I spoke of my own work to oppose the IMF, World Bank, G20, WTO, the government and oppression in general. I spoke of my early activism protesting the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and my support for global justice, and what it means to be an anarchist. I spoke of Steve Bannon and others in the administration who are influencing and who are influenced by the far right movement, which poses a danger to almost everyone who is not at the very top.

“So how do you actually see the government? Do you see it as Russian dolls?” asked Spencer. “Trump is one layer, Bannon is the next layer, and then I am the next layer? Is that how you see it? Yes or no!” he demanded.

“Well, I see you as being a figure in a movement, and you have a direct line —“

“Wow, she is incapable of even giving a straight answer,” he began to say, looking over at the interviewers for validation, “See, this is just her again incapable of answering a question.”

“If you want to hear my answer, you are going to have to listen,” I glared at him, with all of the many years of being a woman and not actually being heard burning out of my eyes like the counter-fire of a war. “Listen, the real world is just nuanced. The real world is complex. So my answers are going to be complex. If you want my answer to your question, you are going to have to actually listen.” I paused.

He looked back at me like a deer in headlights. “I’m listening,” he said.

“Alright. I see your movement as having a direct line to Bannon, to Miller, to the rest of the Trump Administration. What you say leads to real policy. The Trump Administration has been making real policy that is actually impacting real people. Already, awful policies have been made against Muslims, immigrants, trans youth, and now women if the health care bill goes through. You are one of the influential figures among many influential figures in your movement. As such, we will protest you.”

Not long after, we parted ways. After I’d insisted he stop and listen to my answer to his own question, he didn’t say much. He stopped smiling or looking half as cocky as he had earlier in the day. The news producers began leading each of us off to different sides of Rock Creek Park for post-debate interviews. “See you in the streets!” were my final words to him, which I shouted to him as he was walking away with his flunkee. He looked hot and deflated. A weak grunt was all that was offered in return. Is this the guy who wants to lead “his people” to their own “ethno-state?”

I think the news producers had hoped we would find points of agreement. Or maybe just a fist fight. What they got was two people who will never agree. Such is the drama of our time.

I was asked in the follow-up interview what I learned. I said, “I see Richard Spencer as the last gasp of those who wish to keep their white privilege at all costs.” But we cannot let him bring the rest of us down, too, just because they are throwing a temper tantrum as the world shifts gradually away from the imperialism that gave them their power. This is one we must win.

“If they win, there will be genocide, death, and untold suffering,” I said. “If we win, they will have to go back to their little worlds. And everyone lives.”

*I was unable to make a recording of this debate, which will be shown on the 20/20 news program in the coming months. All reconstructed dialog in this article is based upon my contemporaneous notes, made after the debate and to the best of my memory. Not every word may be accurate, but I have attempted to reconstruct the dialog to the best of my ability.
