How to Find the Best Android App for Mileage Tracking?

Despite your excellent accounting and bookkeeping skills, you may find it intimidating to track the business mileage when driving your car. This is where you need an efficient mile tracking app that can manage your mileage logs and save you from the IRS audit trap. An app can automatically track the miles covered for business purposes. When looking for a mile app, there are many factors that you should consider for making the right selection.They include:Customization of Business Mileage Rates:In the USA, the IRS or Internal Revenue Service issues the standard mileage rates that are used for calculation of business deduction of a vehicle used for business purposes. When these rates are used for deduction, you can’t include the vehicle-related expenses like repairs, maintenance, and registration charges in the calculation. Hence, many businesses use their own business mileage rates. To manage the deductions according to these rates, you need a mile app that allows customizable rates for mileage tracking.The Calculation of Mileage:The mileage tracking apps use GPS or Global Positioning Satellite system for tracking your exact location and distance travelled. An accurate app will use GPS coordinates to log this distance covered for the business trips in a precise manner. The app will log this complete data and compute the total miles traveled by you. This distance will be multiplied by the mileage rate for tax deductions or for employee reimbursement. When looking for a mile app, prefer an automatic tracking system to minimize the hassles.Automatic Triggers:There are some advanced Android-based apps that use automated triggers to start and stop the logging of distance traveled during business trips. If there is a Bluetooth device in your vehicle, your Android device will automatically start tracking the mileage whenever this device is paired to the vehicle’s Bluetooth. Also, these apps allow mileage tracking through the current charging state of your device. For instance, if your Android device is plugged into the vehicle’s charger, the app will start tracking the miles automatically. They reduce inaccuracies in the system.Accurate Log Management:An app can effectively track the business mileage and record this data at a centralized portal. Now, it is essential to manage this data for claiming deductions. Here, you need a system that allows exporting of this data to a spreadsheet. This sheet should be prepared in accordance with the specifications of employer or IRS. If you are a business owner, you must prefer an app with a rich account management system. An advanced app can synchronize the varied travel logs to manage this data on the web and prepares rich reports in a prescribed format.These are the factors to keep in mind when looking for a mile app to claim tax deductions.See More

Roku TV devices still banned in Mexico

A Mexican tribunal has upheld a ban on the import of Roku streaming devices in the country, citing piracy.

Cable TV provider, Cablevision, had successfully managed to have the import and sale of Roku streaming devices banned in the country on the grounds that some owners are using them for illegal television streaming. Roku did manage to have that order suspended for a few days, but has now suffered another setback.

This week, a Mexico City tribunal upheld the initial import ban, keeping it illegal to sell devices from California-based Roku in the country.

"Cablevision cannot allow the content that it licenses from domestic and foreign companies to be illegally used," Cablevision spokeswoman Maria Eugenia Zurita told Reuters.

"We would also like Roku Inc to better supervise the use of its software so that it's not used inappropriately."

Roku devices are set-top media boxes that are intended to be used with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Starz and plenty of other legal streaming services on the Internet. In recent years, such devices have fueled a growth in cord-cutting, the practice of dropping cable and satellite television services in favor of online streaming services.

Not all services are legal, of course, and devices can be modified and configured to access illegal streaming services. According to the Reuters report, Roku owners in Mexico are frequently contacted by providers of illegal television streaming services offering them cheap packages of hundreds of television channels, without appropriate permission and licensing.

Roku does not advertise its products for illegal use, and rulings that ban digital media products due to their misuse by some customers could have terrible consequences. Roku is keeping optimistic about the future of its products in Mexico, however.

"Today's decision is not the final word in this complex legal matter, and it is not expected to prevent consumers from purchasing Roku products in Mexico at this time," Roku General Counsel Steve Kay said.

          Lou Reed - Transformer   
Uno dei personaggi più straordinari della storia del rock, raccontato attraverso un album, “Transformer”, che segna una delle sue molte “rinascite” artistiche e creative. “Transformer” è il rock al suo stato più puro, trasgressivo, forte, sorprendente ed elettrico, con un Lou Reed pronto a cavalcarne le onde nella maniera più appassionata e personale possibile, con l’aiuto essenziale di due amici, David Bowie e Mick Ronson, reduci dall’avventura di Ziggy Stardust. Il disco è una straordinaria collezione di classici, da Vicious a Perfect Day, da Satellite of love a Make up, fino ad arrivare a quel Walk on the wild side che per molti anni è stato il marchio di fabbrica di Reed e della sua musica. Lou Reed non è solo uno che fa rock ma è il rock stesso, rappresentato nel suo lessico fondamentale. E “Transformer” ne è la massima realizzazione, dopo la rivoluzione inaugurata con i Velvet Underground.
          Today’s Most Innovative Car Audio Features   

Technology feels like it’s constantly changing. Computers have evolved from taking up an entire room to fitting in the palm of your hand. Car audio is no different. What started out as a simple AM receiver is now more versatile than most of us ever imagined. These days, there are not only a number of different ways to play music through a car audio receiver, but a nice selection of accessories you can get for your stereo. Bluetooth Streaming and SiriusXM Satellite Radio Depending on your age, you might remember a time when cassette tapes, and later CDs, were the only options for listening to music in your car, aside from AM/FM radio. While AM/FM radios and CD players are still common functions of car stereo systems, stereos today commonly have built-in Bluetooth, which allows you to connect your smartphone wirelessly and stream music from apps such as iTunes, Spotify or Pandora directly to the stereo. All aftermarket stereos will offer an auxiliary input with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, to plug in sound from any device. Most also offer USB inputs to allow charging devices, as well asl playing music from a phone or USB flashdrive. With the right equipment, you can gain access to over 150 radio stations with SiriusXM satellite radio, many commercial free. These channels cover every genre of music, sports, news, traffic, weather, and talk radio. Even better, your stereo can receive signal anywhere as long as it has access to the satellites, and with terrestrial repeaters it will be extremely rare to lose signal, even thru tunnels and overpasses. Apps, Maps and More In addition to these fantastic new ways to listen to music through your stereo, technology has brought us great safety features to help you get where you’re going without incident. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connect your smartphone to the car stereo and allow you to access features from your device like maps, texts and other apps, directly through your stereo’s touchscreen or voice control. This allows you to keep your eyes on the road, and driving safer, not digging for your phone to get the info you need. Another great feature available in many stereos is the ability to add a backup camera that feeds directly to the screen, giving you a better view while backing out of your driveway or any other spot. Many car manufactures are adding stereo controls into the steering wheel, providing quick access to volume, play/paus, and skip controls without taking your hands off the wheel. Even better, if you want to replace the factory stereo, you can keep your steering wheel controls working with the addition of a Steering Wheel Control Interface available with the install.

          Media Matters responds to the latest setback for 21st Century Fox’s bid to take over Sky   

Media Matters for America President Angelo Carusone released the following statement after U.K. Culture Secretary Karen Bradley announced that she was “minded” to refer 21st Century Fox’s bid to take over Sky PLC to the U.K. Competition and Markets Authority on grounds of media plurality:

The government should not approve 21st Century Fox’s bid to take over Sky. It’s alarming that the company’s demonstrated culture of malfeasance and governance deficiencies borne out of Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch’s commitment to advancing his personal political agenda has not already been sufficient to warrant outright rejection.

The soft touch to which the government is treating Murdoch’s bid is also revealing -- it seems to come in part because of the disproportionate amount of political power and influence that Murdoch wields. As Secretary Bradley accurately notes, this takeover will give Murdoch even more power and influence. That kind of disproportionate control, especially in the hands of an already destructive entity, is not in anyone’s interest except Murdoch’s.

Beware Murdoch’s promises and assurances. As we have noted, he has made an awful lot of them in the past in order to a secure a deal, only to swiftly disregard his word once the deal was finalized.

In mid-June, Media Matters for America President Angelo Carusone sent a letter to the U.K.'s chief broadcasting regulator, Ofcom, highlighting a number of recent developments -- all of which concern Fox News -- that are pertinent to Ofcom’s investigation into the potential takeover of Sky PLC by Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox, Fox News’ parent company.

The recent developments detailed in Media Matters' letter to Ofcom further underscore that Murdoch and his sons fail to satisfy the conditions necessary to acquire British satellite broadcasting company Sky in full and expose dangers that the bid for Sky would pose to the British public and media landscape.

The letter from Carusone follows a March 30 report Media Matters submitted in partnership with global activism group Avaaz to Ofcom that detailed the risks Murdoch’s desired takeover of Sky poses to British broadcasting standards.

Before that, Media Matters and Avaaz submitted a report to Secretary Bradley of the U.K. Department for Culture, Media and Sport that demonstrated that the risk of Foxification is too great to simply rubber-stamp a Murdoch takeover. On March 16, Bradley referred Murdoch's takeover bid to Ofcom for a thorough investigation on the grounds of "media plurality and commitment to broadcasting standards." The findings of the Ofcom investigation are due by June 20.

21st Century Fox already owns 39.1 percent of Sky. Murdoch abandoned a previous bid for full ownership in light of an investigation into mass hacking at his U.K.-based newspapers. Following an investigation, a parliamentary report found that Murdoch was “not a fit person” to run a major corporation and that his son James (who at the time ran the parent company of News Of The World and The Sun; he is now the CEO of 21st Century Fox) showed “wilful ignorance” of the industrial-scale hacking. In September of 2016, it was reported that Fox News had engaged in similar tactics, hacking the phone of Media Matters reporter Joe Strupp.

          PHOTOS: Israel To Security Council: Iran Used Jewish Symbol For Missile Practice   

(PHOTOS IN EXTENDED ARTICLE) Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon revealed new information to the United Nations Security Council today about Iran’s ballistic missile program and their intention to harm Israel. In a document distributed to the Council members, Ambassador Danon provided new satellite imagery showing the Iranian military using the Star of David as the intended target of the Qiam, a medium-range MTCR category one ballistic missile, last November. The Star of David was painted in white on the ground as the target and a crater from the impact of the missile is visible next to the Star of David. This launch was in direct violation of Security Council Resolution 2231. “This use of the Star of David as target practice is hateful and unacceptable,” Ambassador Danon wrote. “The missile launch is not only a direct violation of UNSCR 2231, but is also a clear evidence of Iran’s continued intention to harm the State of Israel,” the Ambassador continued in his letter to the Council. Last month, the Iranians fired ballistic missiles at targets in Syria, and then released statements threatening Israel. This follows a series of ballistic missile tests conducted by the Iranians since 2015 in defiance of Security Council Resolution 2231. “The targeting of a sacred symbol of Judaism is abhorrent,” Ambassador Danon said about this revelation. “It is the Iranians who prop up the Assad regime as hundreds of thousands are killed, finance the terrorists of Hizbullah as they threaten the citizens of Israel, and support extremists and tyrants throughout the Middle East and around the world. I call on the Security Council to respond decisively to these Iranian violations and provocations,” the Ambassador concluded. (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem/Photo Credit: UN photo)

          Review: 2018 Toyota C-hr   
FullSizeRender_1

By Kevin Harrison

The C-HR is an all new model. It was originally developed to be housed under the Scion umbrella. Toyota recently and rightly realized that its youth oriented brand needed to be taken out back, Old Yeller-style, but it did still see some potential in two models. So they transferred them into the Toyota lineup. They are now known as the Corolla iM and the 86.

The problem with folding a brand completely is there is rarely a time when the brand isn’t developing a new model, new tech or updating existing models. That was the case with the C-HR. Rather than wasting money by dropping it completely, Toyota saw an opportunity to bring it into the fold since it was missing an offering in the newish and now fiercely competitive sub-compact crossover segment. The C-HR seemed to fit the bill nicely.

So now that you know how the C-HR came to be, let’s get to the thing everyone keeps talking about: its styling.

FullSizeRender

As mentioned, the C-HR was always meant to be a Scion which would explain the unique styling direction. But now that it’s a Toyota, does it look a bit out of place in the lineup? And more importantly, what does John Q. Public think?

The verdict, surprisingly and resoundingly, is two thumbs up. The C-HR gets about as much attention as a Lamborghini – all positive. Strangely, a lot of the positivity came from baby boomers and seniors which are markets this car was originally not meant to target. They like the chunky lines, unusual creases and large wheels. Who knew?

Personally, I’d prefer something a bit more sedate that still stands out like the styling of the Mazda CX-3, but to each their own.

FullSizeRender_2

But the problem with taking a Scion and badging it as a Toyota is that Toyota customers have certain expectations, as I mentioned in my recent review of the Corolla iM. If you are accustomed expecting certain features or you just plain want to treat yourself for working hard all-year, you’ll be disappointed to learn that the C-HR, despite having two trims to choose from, has no available leather seats, no satellite radio, no navigation, no LED headlights, no sunroof and more. It’s strange, since you can pile all of those things onto a less-expensive Corolla sedan. Even more strange since most of those features are either standard or available on the C-HR’s competition.

But if you can get past the sparsity of features, the Toyota quality is still there. The interior styling and functionality on the other hand, isn’t its forte. The dash design isn’t symmetrical. All the buttons are angular, making them difficult to use without having to do a double take to make sure you’re pressing the right button. The volume knob is placed so high up on the dash that you might pull a muscle trying to reach it every time (though at least the C-HR has a volume knob. I’m looking at you, Honda). The back-up camera is actually housed in the corner the rear-view mirror, making it tiny, and difficult to see out of. It takes up a quarter of your rear-view mirror rendering the rear-view mirror a bit useless. And don’t even think about reversing the old fashioned way since visibility out the back is about as clear as White House press conferences.

FullSizeRender_4

 

That funky styling certainly comes at a price in terms of outward visibility and rear seat room. The rear windows are small, so if you have claustrophobic kids, prepare to have to stop to talk them down from a few panic attacks. That is, if they can even get into the back seats in the first place. The door handles are placed nearly as high as the sloping roofline, putting them well out of reach of most children. Have fun opening the doors for them every single time to take them somewhere.

But for all its faults, the C-HR can impress in other ways, not least of which is the chassis set up. It’s based on Toyota’s global architecture. That means it has a rigid frame and chassis that maximizes quietness and handling ability, but Toyota has pulled off the difficult trick of making the ride comfortable at the same time. Can it out-corner a BMW M4 in an S-curve? Don’t be daft. Is it as cushy as a Buick LaCrosse? Rubbish. But in terms of comfort and handling – Toyota balances them both nicely. Body roll makes only rare appearances but the steering feedback could be better.

FullSizeRender_3

In terms of power, you’ll get one choice of a 2.0 litre four-cylinder which produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound feet of torque married to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This is likely an adequate amount of power for most and the CVT allows you a good amount of propulsion off the line before it starts nannying in the name of fuel efficiency. In fact, around town power is quite good. It isn’t until you get up to higher speeds when the C-HR starts to feel sluggish. Dartmouth, Nova Scotia has a lot of hills which are its arch nemeses.

Official fuel consumption ratings come in at 8.7 L/100 kms in the city and 7.5 highway. I had the C-HR performing mostly city driving duties and returned a somewhat disappointing 9.3 L/100 kms. I say somewhat because the week I had it delivered scorching temperatures so the A/C was on full blast a lot of the time, which takes a negative effect on fuel efficiency. It would have been nice to have a sunroof to leave open or tilted so that the interior didn’t get so hot while it was parked. Just sayin’, Toyota.

FullSizeRender_2

On paper the C-HR makes a good amount of sense. It’s got stand-out styling that most people seem to like, it has a quality interior, good comfort and handling balance and it is a good performer around town. But the lack of key features and poor visibility drag it down in my opinion. As does this one crucial fact: it is front-wheel drive only. That’s right, if you were looking for all-wheel drive you’ll need to look at literally any other automotive brand. Because literally every other automotive brand offers either all-wheel drive as standard or at least optional in this segment. This seems like the biggest omission of them all for the C-HR.

But if you’re looking for a quiet, comfortable ride that garners attention and will likely be fairly reliable, then the CH-R is worth a look. The problem is, all of its competition is worth a look too and when you stack them next to it, the choice becomes rather obvious.

Base Price: $24,690

Price As Tested (includes taxes and fees): $28,178

We live in a special time in the history of the world where EVERYONE (who can read, or who can listen to someone who can read) has the ability to gain access to ALL the information they need to become a KNOWLEDGABLE 'expert' in almost any subject matter of their choice... in as little as 30 days.

Yes... look around you... wherever you look, in libraries, bookstores, on your own bookshelves... in books, audio tapes, video cassettes... on T.V., satellite channels, documentaries and on the Internet... everyone can access and share in the success 'secrets' of the most successful people that have ever lived.

Many years ago, I sought out these super-successful people through their writings and seminars and conducted my own in-depth reviews of their works.

You cannot help but internalise their positive input when you put their 'secrets' into action.

I'll share some of these personal reviews with you later in this forum.

Okay, I've googled 'til I"m googled out. I've been on Toshiba's website and their forums. I haven't been able to find any answer to my problem.

I've got a customer's Toshiba Satellite X205-S9800. When it first came in, it wouldn't power up at all. One of his kiids spilled some liquid on it and shorted it out. I replaced the motherboard. Now I get the power light and battery light steady red. When I press the 'on' button, the on led comes on red and then starts blinking 2 amber 1 red over and over. The fans come on. I get no video either externally or on the LCD screen.

I've tried it with and without the battery installed. No difference.

I've tried it with and without RAM installed. Without the RAM the blink code changes to 2 amber 2 red.

It does have a separate GPU daughtercard and I'm thinking that might be the problem. But, I'd...

          Lågt intresse för Pokerstars Championship i Panama   

Dag 1B av Main Event i Pokerstars Championship i Panama spelades igår kväll på Sortis Hotel, Spa & Casino, och det blev lite av ett fiasko för arrangörerna.

Endast 259 spelare registrerade sig för den andra startdagen, och lägger man ihop det med siffrorna från Dag 1A uppgår totalen till 362 spelare.

Jämför man det med den skrotade EPT-touren så får man gå tillbaka till Tallin 2011 för att hitta ett lika lågt intresse.

De svenska pokerspelarna verkar inte heller ha varit överdrivet taggade på den långa resan över till Centralamerika.

Till Dag 1B ställde bara en upp, och det var Karim Zerzour. Precis som Sebastian Hinderoth och Robin Andersson kvalificerade han sig också via Pokerstars onlinesatelliter.

Zerzour kommer att göra sina två landsmän sällskap till Dag 2 då han lyckades överleva dagen. Där går han in med 32.6k bakom sig, vilket är marginellt mer än startstacken om 30k.

Yaroshevsky fortsatt i topp

Bäst för dagen gick Jiachen Gong från Kanada. Han avslutade med 154,300 i stacken.

Igor Yaroshevsky Pokerstars Championship
Igor Yaroshevsky har all anledning att vara glad

Några andra nämnvärda spelare som valde Dag 1B var den norska mästaren Preben Stokkan (60,4k), Jake Cody (36,1k) och Jaime Staples (4,7k).

De ligger dock i lä mot Igor Yaroshevsky från Dag 1A som tar med sig 219,600.

I fältet skådades även Lucas Gonzales som spelar Rugby för det argentinska landslaget, men hans resa kunde inte ha varit mer annorlunda än MMA-fightern Tito Ortiz.

Gonzales försvann redan innan middagspausen, medan Ortiz ligger tvåa i den totala chipcounten.

Inför Dag 2 återsamlas 171 spelare, och spelet startar klockan 12:00 lokal tid.

Såhär ser toppen ut:

Den 5:e januari i år öppnades Rysslands första casino, och bara tre månader senare står det klart att Pokerstars Championship besöker landet.

2017 blev den gamla OS-staden Sochi officiellt en laglig casinozon.

Sochi Resort & Casino blev det första casinot som slog upp portarna för allmänheten.

Jättebygget är 32 000 kvadratmeter stort och rymmer förnödenheter som restauranger, nattklubbar och en teater.

I vår kommer Pokerstars på besök när deras internationella tour Pokerstars Championship stannar till på casinot.

$2,6M garanterat i Main Events prispott

Trots att det är det första mästerskapet som hålls i Ryssland så sparar man inte på krutet.

Totalt är 11 speldagar inplanerade mellan 20:e till 31:a maj, och Main Event har en garanterad prispott på 150 miljoner Rubel. Det motsvarar drygt $2,6M, eller 23,5 miljoner kronor.

Pokerstars National Championship: 20-25 maj – Inköp: $1,160 Pokerstars Championship Super High Roller: 23-25 maj – Inköp: $50,700 Pokerstars National High Roller: 24-25 maj – Inköp: $2,320 Pokerstars Championship Main Event: 25-31 maj – Inköp: 5,590 NL Hold’em Singel Day High Roller: 26 maj – Inköp $26,880 Pokerstars Championship PLO High Roller: 27-28 maj – Inköp: $10,860 Pokerstars Championship High Roller: 29-31 maj – Inköp $10,860

          Viktor Blom och E-sport profiler till Unibet Open   

Unibet laddar om för en ny säsong av Unibet Open, och man inleder 2017 i London. Flera intressanta profiler har bekräftat sin närvaro, och en av dem är Viktor Blom.

Festivalen startar på onsdag, och den pågår sedan i fem dagar fram tills på söndag.

11 stycken event är schemalagda. Det inkluderar bland annat ett £990 Main Event, en £2020 Highroller och ett gäng turneringar i den lägre prisklassen.

Poker + E-sport i Jippoevent

Viktor Blom har på sistone synts sporadiskt vid onlineborden med blandade resultat.

På livefronten har det däremot inte varit lika livat, och man får gå hela vägen tillbaka till 2014 för att hitta en cash. Den gången slutade han tvåa i EPT Grand Finals Highroller i Monte Carlo för drygt €130k.

Men den kommande veckan blir det åtminstone ett par kortare framträdanden.

Under Unibet Open i London anordnas två £10,000 frirullar för E-sport profiler och Unibet ambassadörer.

Svenska Hearthstone-proffset Sebastian Forsen är en av E-sportarna som ställer upp, och Viktor Blom är en av pokerambassadörerna.

Vinnaren går hem med £5000.

Det är ännu inte officiellt om någon av dem kommer att spela Main Event.

I will be at the Unibet Open London Event. Looking foward to it!! :) @UnibetPoker pic.twitter.com/uz1H7nzBiB

William Kassouf var förmodligen den mest uppmärksammade spelaren utan en titel i 2016 års WSOP, och han spelade flera underhållande händer i Main Event.

William Kassouf
Kassouf tur att få revansch?

Den ena var mot Stacy Matuson. Matuson fick dock äntligen sin revansch under 888Live i Rozvadov i en Heads-up utmaning.

Kassouf har däremot inte fått någon revansch för handen mot Griffin Benger, men om bordslottningen är den rätta kan han ha möjlighet i veckan.

Båda har nämligen bekräftat att de ska ställa upp i Main Event.

Är du inte på plats i London och vill raila kör man som vanligt på en livestream via Twitch. Marc Convey och David Vanderheyden kommenterar actionen.

Sistaminuten satelliter går fortfarande, och man har även planerat in fler stopp för 2017 års säsong.

Bland dem återfinns Köpenhamn 25:e till 28:e maj.

Det är möjligt att kvala in sig online till samtliga festivaler. Har du inget konto kan du skapa ett via vår recensionssida. Då är du även berättigad till en insättningsbonus på €200.

          EPT Prag 2016 – Allt du behöver veta inför sista upplagan   

Nästa vecka drar den sista EPT:n igång, och här hittar du den viktigaste informationen inför stoppet i Prag.

Totalt har 13 säsonger av European Poker Tour avverkats. Man har besökt många olika städer genom åren, men Prag har funnits på schemat längre än de allra flesta, och det av flera anledningar.

Casinot ligger mitt i stadskärnan innanför ett lyxhotell, och inom gångavstånd hittar du affärer, utomordentligt nattliv, bra mat och intressant historia.

Staden ligger också centralt till i Europa, vilket gör den otroligt lättåtkomlig.

Man är dessutom en av de få destinationerna som regelbundet lockar över 1000 spelare i Main Event – bara Barcelona ligger på samma nivå.

Oklart om Pokerstars Championship väljer Prag

För tillfället är det inte helt klart om Pokerstars Championship väljer Prag som en av sina destinationer kommande säsong då bara halva schemat är officiellt.

Det kan därför vara en god idé att försöka kvala in sig, eller åtminstone följa actionen på Pokerlistings, då det lär vara sista gången du får uppleva många av eventen.

Man kommer återigen att hålla till på Hilton Hotell, som ligger precis intill Atrium Casino, och som vanligt spelas Eureka i samma byggnad.

Några av toppeventen att hålla ett extra öga på är följande:

€10,300 High Roller – 8:e till 10:e december €330 Pokerstars Cup – 8:e till 12:e december €1,100 Eureka Main Event – 9:e till 13:e december €50,000 Super High Roller – 11:e till 13:e december €2,200 Eureka High Roller – 12:e till 13:e december €5300 EPT Main Event – 13:e till 19:e december €10,300 High Roller – 17:e till 19:e december

Tidigare vinnare

Några tidigare vinnare av EPT Prag har varit profiler som Arnaud Mattern (2007). Salvatore Bonavena (2008), Roberto Romanello (2010), Ramzi Jelassi (2012) och sist men inte minst Hossein Ensan (2015).

Hoosein Ensan EPT Prag
Hoosein Ensan i Prag 2015

Ensan chockade en hel pokervärld när han som hobbyspelare gick och vann Senior eventet i Barcelona 2014, och bara några dagar senare kom han trea i Main Event.

Han följde upp det med finalbord i EPT Maltas Main Event och Eurekas Main Event i Rozvadov.

Han vann sedan en turnering i Rotterdam innan han åkte till Prag och tog hem en av de mest eftertraktade titlarna en pokerspelare kan vinna.

Nästa EPT-titel kommer att bli den sista som delas ut, vilket gör den lite extra prestigefylld.

Satelliter spelas fortfarande hos Pokerstars, och de håller på fram tills söndag den 4:e december.

Du hittar dem under Events -> Live Events i lobbyn.

          Näst sista EPT:n igång – Pokerhysteri på Malta   

För pokerfanatikern är Malta drömdestinationen i slutet av oktober. Under tre veckors tid ska EPT Malta, IPT, Poker-SM och Battle of Malta spelas.

Fyra olika turneringsserier på mindre än en månad (!), och Portomaso Casino i St.Julians står som värd för tre av dem.

Den lilla ön i medelhavet kommer med andra ord vimla av pokerspelare de närmsta veckorna.

EPT Malta och IPT redan igång

Igår drog de första eventen i EPT Malta igång, och man startade med ett 8-handat $10k NLHE-event.

Den italienska pokertouren (IPT) anordnas ännu en gång i samarbete med European Poker Tour, och för bara några timmar sedan satte Dag 1A av Main Event igång. Turneringen spelas över fem dagar fram till den 23:e, och lagom tills en italiensk mästare är krönt startar EPT Main Event.

Mellan den 23:e till 29:e oktober ska den näst sista EPT-mästaren utses, då Pokertars som bekant skrotar touren till nästa år, och istället inkluderar de mest besökta stoppen i deras nya Pokerstars Championship.

Totalt ska 69 event spelas under de båda tourerna, och nedan hittar du spelschemat för några av de populäraste eventen. Fullständigt spelschema kan du läsa här.

Åk vidare till Dragonara Casino

Dragonara Casino

När pokertourerna packar ihop förflyttas actionen till Dragonara Casino och Svenska Pokerförbundets Live-SM.

Den första turneringen spelas redan den 28:e oktober, då Mörkpoker-SM ska avgöras.

Dag 1B av No-Limit Hold’em Main Event börjar dock inte förrän den 30:e, så om du tänkt spela EPT Maltas avslutningsevent behöver du inte stressa.

Svenska Pokerförbundets Live-SM håller på fram tills den 2:a november, och du hittar mer information om det i den här artikeln.

Och tillbaka till Portomaso Casino för BOM!

Battle of Malta
Avsluta äventyret med en BOM-trofé!

När Live-SM avlutas påbörjas Battle of Malta på Portomaso Casino.

Förra året lockade Main Event 1804 spelare, och som vanligt förväntas turneringen slå sitt egna deltagarrekord ännu en gång.

Hela Hilton Hotell är redan uppbokat av spelarna sedan lång tid tillbaka, men det går fortfarande att köpa BOM-paket med boende på Corinthia Marina Hotell och Ir Rokna Hotell.

Du hittar också onlinesatelliter hos 888Poker, Betsafe och Betsson. Genom dem har du möjlighet att säkra ditt paket för bara några euro.

Den garanterade prispotten är uppe i €500,000, och förra året tog alla spelare på topp3 hem över €100,000 var, inte illa för en turnering med ett inköp på €550!

Det spelas även flera sidoevent som en highroller, en Omaha-turnering och populära Siege of Malta. Det fulla spelschemat kan du läsa här.

Slutsats? Om du är en pokerfanatiker ut i fingerspetsarna ser du till att boka flygbiljetter till Malta omedelbart!

          Hardly a 'hit piece'   
State auditors find disturbing practices at Delta College

By The Record
November 16, 2008 6:00 AM

In the words of a San Joaquin Delta College spokesman: "It's a hit piece."

More precisely, a politically motivated hit piece, according to spokesman Greg Greenwood, reacting to yet another highly critical assessment of how the college has handled the $250 million bond approved four years ago.

And our response: So?

Who cares if the audit was politically motivated (it came at the urging of state Sen. Michael Machado, D-Linden)? What district taxpayers should care about is what state auditors say they found. And they found plenty, just like county grand jurors did last summer.

In pushing Measure L, Delta officials made pie-in-the-sky promises about satellite campuses and sprucing up the main campus. What did college officials do? They built athletic fields and bought electronic message boards - check them out the next time to drive by the campus on Pershing or Pacific avenues - instead of fixing leaking roofs, faulty electrical wiring, upgrading existing buildings or building new ones.

The excuse offered up earlier by Delta President Raul Rodriguez: "It was important for people to see the visual results of bond spending."

Huh? Really? They didn't even start pushing dirt around for the new athletic facilities until last year, three years after Measure L was passed. And the idea that most district voters associate improving higher education at a community college by building athletic fields is absurd on its face.

To most people, especially those who for years will be paying off the $250 million bonds, what comes to mind are things like biology labs and classrooms and updated library facilities and more classes available to the far-flung reaches of the college district.

There's not a lot to show for $250 million, not a lot of "visual results".

State Controller's Office auditors did find that in addition to spending millions on athletic fields and message boards, the college also spent $283,382 in bond on a new financial information system that included sending college staffers to 18 campuses around the nation.

Only later were those expenses shifted out of the bond account and to the college's general account.

"Not one penny has been charged to the bond," Greenwood said, adding that there has been "an enormous amount of scrutiny on this (bond) money."

Not everyone agrees, especially state auditors who called the Citizens Oversight Committee "passive, perfunctory and ineffective." At least one member of that panel argues that auditors didn't understand the committee's job, and besides its authority is limited by state law.

And the question that statement begs is: if true, why have an oversight committee?

College officials promised a point-by-point rebuttal to the audit, and last week the 10-page answer was sent to Jeffrey V. Brownfield, the chief of the division of audits in the Controller's Office.

The college's response was somewhat similar to its answer to the blistering grand jury report last summer.

Among other things, jurors said the college had essentially lost about $30 million in bond money on its Mountain House campus project in the south county by delays and plain old bad decisions.

The district's answer to jurors: yeah, we could have done better.

The district's answer to state auditors: on five specific points auditors raised, the college disagreed with four, and agreed with one (that the college could have done better retaining oversight committee members).

The college awaits the auditors' final report, to which the district rebuttal will be attached.

Before that, college officials will face Dr. Brian King, head of the recent accreditation team that visited Delta College earlier and placed the college on warning status. He will be at Delta on Monday for a follow-up and plans a public town hall meeting in the Tillie Lewis Theatre at 3 p.m.

Accreditation is imperative. Without it Delta College becomes a high school with fees. Students wanting to transfer to four year colleges will have more trouble.

This storm of reports and continued controversy goes a long way toward explaining why two long-term trustees did not seek re-election Nov. 4 year and two others were thrown out of office by voters.

A new board majority is promising a new attitude, more oversight of the taxpayers' money and more engagement with district residents.

No matter how energetic this new crop of trustees they can't get back the millions squandered and the time wasted.

They can set in motion the actions to see that things change, that it doesn't happen again.

          Tracy Press Endorsements: Board Needs a "New Dose of Blood"   
Written by Press editorial board
Tuesday, 28 October 2008

San Joaquin Delta College has not used the $250 million Measure L bond wisely, and we think the board could use new administrative leadership.

Without a doubt, San Joaquin Delta College is in trouble after its gross mishandling of the $250 million Measure L bond, a scathing grand jury investigation and threatened loss of accreditation. The dysfunctional board needs new blood, and the first order of business should be to find new administrative leadership that can work with the new board to rebuild trust in the institution’s governance.

The good news is that two of the rooted incumbents aren’t running for another term, and in the other two districts having elections, the incumbents are not running unopposed — for the first time. So change is coming.

Voters throughout the community college district will choose one trustee for each of the four district seats out of a total of 13 candidates.

Eleven out of those 13 attended our candidate forum Oct. 22, and we’ve had numerous conversations with members of the Delta community about which candidates to endorse. Here’s our take:

• For Area 6, which has three candidates from Tracy, Greg McCreary — 70-year-old businessman, former New Jerusalem Elementary School District superintendent and 12-year board member — is the only incumbent we’ll back.

If elected, he’ll serve as president of the board.

McCreary has often been at odds, for good reason, with his fellow board members. He pushed for a satellite campus in Tracy, and at the very least, he wants to stick it out for one more term on the board to make sure we don’t lose the campus at Mountain House.

He’s out for our best interest on the board.

One of his challengers, Teresa Brown, is a program developer at the CSU Stanislaus-Stockton Center. She’s a smart and articulate newcomer who impresses us, and we hope she’ll still be interested after McCreary serves his last term.

• For Area 5, we endorse Steve Castellanos, an architect from Valley Springs who has been an outspoken critic of the Delta board. He would offer a unique perspective with his experience as a former state architect whose responsibilities included reviewing community college construction projects.

• Mary Ann Cox is our choice for Area 2, the district with the most competition in this race. Cox is a retired Delta dean who brings an insider’s understanding of the school and its problems. She’s a passionate supporter of education who said she believes it’s not too late for Delta to put a campus in Tracy.

• In Area 1, James Grunsky is an energetic trucking company owner and boxing promoter who is our choice to unseat 16-year incumbent Anthony Bugarin. Grunsky, 26, is a former Delta student who would bring thoughtful, fresh energy to a board that needs it badly.

          Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs (at a random rest stop in NJ)   
Okay, just to circle back to the original questions and trying really hard to not offend anyone... It's been my experience that the satellite locations of Nathan's can be pretty spotty. Some are great and others -- the ones in the Rye Playland come to mind -- are awful, filled with crappy overcooked food and surly indifferent employees. So it's hard to know where on the spectrum these fall. They look pretty good from the pic -- not overcooked and fairly plump, and it looks like you didn't overdress them. So just based on looks, and not knowing what they lacked in your opinion to be truly great hot dogs, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say, yeah, these may be as good as it gets. Nathan's dogs usually do well in national taste tests, but they just may not be to your taste. A visit to Coney Island wouldn't hurt just to confirm, though. But they might be crappy there too. And meaning no snark, I really do wonder what "meh" means in this context, ands also what difference the size of the griddle makes.

          Comment on Russian student satellite hopes to be the brightest star in sky by Ted   
I remember trying to spot the Echo sat/balloon as a kid. My dad and the the math prof from Buff State who lived next door finally spotted it as it crossed the sky. At the time we were all quite amazed. Now I can - on a nice dark night - show the kids the ISS floating high above.... and it has people in there! I wonder if this will be any brighter than Echo was.

          Comment on Vector obtains $21 million in funding by Edward   
That is the beautiful part of free market capitalism. The companies that provide a better service or a more desirable price are the ones that are efficient enough to survive. The others either have to improve their efficiency or get out of the business. This means that the investors (like those investing $21 million) are eager that the company do well. Lockheed Martin recently announced the end of their Athena rocket business, which launched small satellites to orbit as well as the Lunar Prospector probe. Athena couldn't compete with the new rockets coming on the market, and was so expensive that it only launched half a dozen times over the past two decades. Congratulations to Vector for making it this far -- it isn't easy -- and I wish Vector continued success in the future.
          News Coverage   

The EU -Africa Ministerial Conference on Migration and Development took place last week, November 22-23. I check Google News headlines daily because, for whatever reason, I think (or rather used to think) that it was relatively un-biased and represented the "most important," "need to know" stories, but over the past week I noticed nothing on this conference, which seems like a pretty big deal. Rather, I learned of the conference by way of allAfrica, where it made the front page on November 24th, right under the stories about Rwanda's decision to cut ties with France (more recent story). I wondered, what's up with Google? Have they become just like every other cotton candy news source? So, I Googled "Google News biased" (ironic? maybe), and found this from the USC (that's the University of Southern California, not South Carolina; it has been argued that the University of South Carolina is the original USC because it was established 75 years earlier than the University of Southern California, however I argue that the University of Southern California is the real USC because it aquired the web domain before South Carolina) Annenberg Center for Communication Online Journalism Review. Turns out that Google's algorithms are causing the bias. In trying to be un-biased by using algorithms, Google News is actually perpetuating a bias in news. Hmmm... I guess I'll have to look somewhere else for my news, maybe allAfrica. But wait, what's this? allAfrica is biased? Yup, from my Google search of "Google News biased," I found this, "It's not all Africa @ allAfrica.com." Can good news be found anywhere?


Last night I happened across a television channel, LinkTV, while scanning the tube for something to dull my mind for a bit, to take a break from staring at my computer screen and writing. Scrolling through the channels, I stopped at what looked like a music video, a group of black men singing into the camera. I stopped because rather than being set in the streets of New York, LA, St. Louis, Atlanta, etc, the setting looked like a West African village. I was confused. My first thought was that this was some sort of statement being made by a US hip hop/rap group, deliberately choosing, or creating, an "African" setting, but then I realized the men were not singing in English, I couldn't even recognize the language in which they were singing. By now I had figured out that this was a music video coming out of, that is produced in, Africa, but I was still confused because I couldn't figure out what place it had on the television set in my boyfriend's apartment in Irvine (Orange County), California; he doesn't subscribe to any special networks or packages, just the basic cable that all graduate student residents get with their rent. By this point my boyfriend was also glued to the tv, we kept asking each other, "What is this?" not because we didn't know what it was, but because we didn't know what it was doing in our living room without our solicitation of it. It turned out to be a video from Senegal. We watched a few others, another from Senegal, and one (or two?) from Mali, before a bumper popped up declaring the channel we were watching as, "LinkTV: Television Without Borders." We both expected a commercial and got up to leave the room, but no commercial came, instead an announcement, next up was a program that profiled Chinese restaurants across the world, this installment would be on Turkey
(the country), we sat back down and watched the whole thing all the way through, uninterupted, it was wonderful.


The bumper popped up again, we opened our laptops and googled "LinkTV." There we found out that LinkTV is a channel available via satellite (Wikipedia claims that it reaches 1 in 4 homes in the US), never runs commercials, and is funded by individual and organizational donations. We also found and watched, MOSAIC:World news from the Middle East. The first segment was on the recent increase of violence in Iraq. The tone was similar to that of BBC or CNN, and the segments began as would any FOX or CBS local or national news program, reporting the statistics, how many dead, where, who, by whom, but the video clips were much more extended, and showed more violence, more suffering, more women and children, less men with guns, and something I have never seen on the major network or cable news shows, refugees.


Back to the EU-Africa Conference and allAfrica . . . after reading the articles listed under the Conference headline on allAfrica, the only one I found to be intriguing was this one, "Senegal: 'Mankind is Like This - One Wants to Get Ahead'", which wasn't even directly related to the conference. I liked this article because it addressed migration on a personal level, telling the story of a man trying to migrate from Senegal to the Canary Islands. The story and the man addressed migration as a cultural practice, the other articles took the same, tired stance on Africa, migration, aid and development, even the conference notes did not mention the cultural significance of migration, rather contextualizing it in terms of aid and development from Europe and the US.


Like this blog post, African migration is a process, an activity (as you can probably tell, I really like this concept of activity), that should be analyzed by standing back and looking at the whole picture, while taking the time to zoom into particular practices. This approach produces the potential to recognize grand patterns and contextualize them appropriately, and conversely to recognize specific cases and pattern and contextualize them appropriately. Until then, such conferences and programs on migration, development, aid, etc will continue to target the symptoms, and then only to eradicate or alleviate, rather than accommodate them, not the causes of such "problems."

Hidden Legacy: Japanese Traditional Performing Arts in the World War II Internment Camps

Directed by Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto-Wong
2014 | 56 mins | Documentary

“Hidden Legacy: Japanese Traditional Performing Arts in the World War II Internment Camps” is the full title of this documentary, using historical footage and interviews from artists who were interned to tell the story of how traditional Japanese cultural arts were maintained at a time when the War Relocation Authority (WRA) emphasized the importance of assimilation and Americanization.  Various essays and studies concerning the camps have been published, but have focused on the political and legal aspects of the internment, while hardly mentioning cultural and recreational activities in the camps.  When cultural and recreational activities have been documented, they have focused on American culture, such as baseball and swing music.  This film will be the first major presentation of the existence of traditional music, dance and drama in the camps.  It is possible only because Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto-Wong has been searching, researching and collecting for over 20 years information on who these artists were.  She has collected interviews, oral and visual histories, as well as artifacts from the internees and relatives of internees, including teachers, students, the performers, and the incredible artists who made instruments, costumes, and the props needed for a full performance from scraps of wood, toothbrush handles, gunny sacks, paint, and whatever they could scrape up.  Her own family’s history with the camps led her to become a kotoist and teacher of the Japanese koto (13-stringed zither).
Very little is known of the existence of traditional Japanese performance arts in the camps.  The artists Muramoto-Wong has interviewed are all Americans, all born here, but practiced Japanese arts before the war, during, and after the war, because they loved the art.  This made them “social activists” in their own quiet way, continuing the music and dance they loved, helping others to learn and enjoy these arts, and to help draw their attention away from their surroundings, giving them pride and self-esteem.  Their efforts kept Japanese cultural arts alive in our communities today.
We have interviewed 30 artists in the fields of music (koto, nagauta shamisen, shakuhachi, shigin, biwa), dance (buyo, obon) and drama (kabuki) who were interned at Tule Lake, Manzanar, Amache/Granada, Rohwer, Gila River, and Topaz.  We have interviewed Prof. Minako Waseda of Geijutsu Daigaku University of Music and Arts, and Kunitachi College of Music, both universities in Tokyo, whose research thesis, Extraordinary Circumstances, Exceptional Practices: Music in Japanese American Concentration Camps, had written the only scholarly work that had been published on this subject.  We are also interviewing students of these arts in America, some who learned from these artists, and some who are carrying on the tradition in our communities today, and some who have taken this knowledge, and expanded creatively and artistically in various imaginative ways.
Film locations include camps at Manzanar, Tule Lake, Heart Mountain; locations in Japan, such as Osaka, Kyoto, 3 Tokyo music universities (Tokyo Ongaku Daigaku, Geijutsu Daigaku, Kunitachi College of Music); Cherry Blossom Festivals in San Francisco and Cupertino; San Jose Obon Festival; Chidori Band 59th Anniversary Concert; Japanese American Museum of San Jose; dance studio of Bando Misayasu (aka Mary Arii Mah), and koto studio of Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto-Wong.
Film sponsored, in part, by the National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites grant.

About the Creative Director

Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto-Wong was raised in a musical family whose roots lie in the Chikushi Kai School of kotoists in Japan.   Her mother is a respected head of the Chikushi Kai in the Bay Area, with close ties to her teachers in Japan. Shirley was taught within that tradition, learning and constantly performing the core of traditional pieces shared by all koto groups and also the repertoire particular to the Chikushi Kai.  Importantly, it is a group which is also open to contemporary music for the koto, so that her repertoire encompasses such works as the compositions of Tadao Sawai, Katsutoshi Nagasawa and Shinichi Yuize.  From that spirit of open-mindedness (within tradition), Shirley also pursued her interest in jazz and as it extends to the koto, and improvisation. 

In 1976, Shirley received her “Shihan” degree (instructor’s license) with “Yushusho” (highest) honors from the Chikushi School in Fukuoka, Japan, and her "Dai Shihan" Master’s degree from the same school in 2000 for her mastery of the koto.

A dedicated musician for over 50 years, Shirley strives to involve diverse genres of art and music in her performances.  She teaches private students, and has offered classes in koto music at public schools and at universities, most notably classes at UC Berkeley. Shirley has incorporated storytelling, poetry, hip-hop, gospel, bluegrass, jazz, European classical, and has arranged world songs from countries such as China, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Philippines and so on, for koto, as well as performing and arranging traditional and contemporary Japanese songs, and composing her own koto pieces.   She also is the leader of the world jazz fusion group, the Murasaki Ensemble.

“The koto is an extremely versatile instrument,” says Shirley.  “Though it seems limited and simple in its nature, it’s possible to extract a myriad of textures and sounds through various techniques and even percussive rhythms by incorporating the body of the instrument itself.  The koto is initially easy to play, but it really takes years of practice to be able to produce a good sound.”

Shirley’s koto influences include koto masters Katsuko Chikushi, Kimio Eto, Kazue Sawai, and June Kuramoto. Her jazz influences come from the members of the her jazz group, the Murasaki Ensemble, who are Vince Delgado on percussion, Jeff Massanari on guitar, Matt Eakle on flute, and Alex Baum on bass. 

Because of Shirley’s versatility on the koto, she has performed for many notable people and celebrities, such as: Senator Diane Feinstein, George Lucas/Lucas Films, former Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone, Walter Shorenstein, Larry Ellison and Mikael Gorbachev.  She has also performed at many eclectic events from the Fillmore and Union Street Jazz Festivals to the AT&T Golf Tournament hosted by Clint Eastwood, Christina Aguilera, and the Sacramento, Marin, and Fremont symphony orchestras. Shirley has performed at numerous community events, and given of her time to many of them, including annual Cherry Blossom Festivals in San Francisco and Cupertino, many Obon festivals in Oakland, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose, just to name a few.  In 2012, Shirley was honored by the Hokka Nichibei Kai Bunka Japanese American Cultural Association of America by being inducted into their Hall of Fame.

Shirley has been most interested in researching Japanese traditional performance arts in the World War II concentration camps, after finding out that her mother learned to play the koto from koto teachers at Topaz and Tule Lake camps during WWII.  In 2012, she was awarded a National Parks Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites grant to turn her decades-long research into a documentary film.  The film, “Japanese Traditional Performance Arts in the World War II Internment Camps” completed in 2014, includes interviews and stories from 21 people who experienced Japanese performing arts in the camps, or were taught by teachers from the camps, archival photos as well as actual film footage of performances in the camps.  Hidden Legacy has been screened publicly at numerous community showings, at universities including UC Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford, Tokyo Arts, Waseda, Musashino and Doshisha Universities, and aired on public TV across the United States since its premiere.

          空間資訊測繪新利器-政府機關首部測繪車加入圖資更新作業   
繼完成無人飛行載具(UAS)建置之後,內政部國土測繪中心再度與國內產業合作,順利完成政府機關首部測繪車研發,改變了傳統測量模式,也開啟了地面快速測繪的新紀元。
傳統的測量技術,測量人員必須在車水馬龍的馬路上作業,既危險又辛苦,而且每天能測量的範圍有限;測繪車的發展使得空間資料的蒐集更有效率,既能滿足地理資訊系統(GIS)對空間資料要求的完整性與時效性,又能保障測量人員的安全。有別於Google街景車,測繪車應用層面更廣,除用於街景拍攝外,亦可辦理路線測繪、道路設施調查(如人孔蓋、變電箱、電線桿等)及三維城市模型建置等作業。
測繪車上主要元件可以分為兩個部分,即整合式定位定向系統及負責空間資料蒐集的遙測感測器。前者的核心架構是慣性導航系統(Inertial Navigation System, INS)、全球導航衛星系統(Global Navigation Satellite System, GNSS)及輪速計,後者則包含8臺高解析度工業級相機,透過與內政部國土測繪中心e-GNSS及時動態定位系統結合,除可提高測繪車定位精度外,亦可掌握測繪車的及時動態。
內政部國土測繪中心開發的測繪車已正式投入圖資更新行列,並陸續完成和美交流道聯絡道、投17線、臺中市新闢北峰橋、臺中軟體園區西側聯外道路、文心北屯線機廠及車站區段徵收專案範圍內等多處新闢橋梁道路空間資訊蒐集,提供臺灣通用電子地圖更新;未來測繪車除持續提供更新圖資所需的資料外,亦將精進相關技術,搭配多種感測器,期能克服環境限制,提高資料蒐集效能,並推廣應用於防救災、智慧城市等領域。

•  New report says global temperature since 1998 is rising 140% faster than previously calculated:

Researchers from Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), based in California, have released a substantially revised version of their lower tropospheric temperature record.

After correcting for problems caused by the decaying orbit of satellites, as well as other factors, they have produced a new record showing 36 percent faster warming since 1979 and nearly 140 percent faster (e.g. 2.4 times faster) warming since 1998. 

States move on paid sick leave:

While inaction on paid sick days at the national level continues to erode families’ economic security, cities and states are stepping up for working people and serving as models for jurisdictions throughout the country. Rhode Island is the latest example—legislators there have been working to pass legislation to guarantee a minimum amount of paid time for eligible workers to care for themselves or their family when they are sick or need medical care. [...] If the governor signs a bill, it will be a big win for working people and their families in Rhode Island, as the state will join Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Vermont in guaranteeing that working people have the ability to earn paid sick time.

Gun rights advocates win at least for now as judge blocks California ban on large-capacity magazines: U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez issued a temporary injunction Thursday against the section of California’s Proposition 63 that requires lawful owners of magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition to voluntarily surrender them or face criminal prosecution. “Plaintiffs’ entitlement to enjoy Second Amendment rights and just compensation are not eliminated simply because they possess ‘unpopular’ magazines holding more than 10 rounds,” Benitez wrote. Magazines holding more than 10 rounds have been illegal to sell in the state since 2000. But existing owners were grandfathered in under that law. The new law requires that they destroy these magazines or give them up to authorities or licensed dealers who could sell them in other states. Californians probably have millions of large-capacity magazines in their possession.

          Vector Space Systems Gain $21 Million Funding to Build Cheaper Rockets   
While Elon Musk was starting his new venture SpaceX, he had asked experts of aviation field during his series of salons in Silicon Valley and around Los Angeles to suggest ideas regarding the new generation rocket. Most of those who made credible suggestions, related to the development of smaller, cheaper, and yet efficient rockets, which can take something into the orbit at a much lower price than the present cost of about $100 million. In the past few years, Space Technologies Corp. has indeed managed to reduce the launch prices drastically, although the size of the spaceships have not reduced as much as desired by some of the advisers. Equal Focus on Increasing Launch Efficiency Among those who made the suggestions and helped Space X get off the ground, have collaborated to ignite a start-up of themselves, called Vector Space Systems, which now has gained $21 million funding from some of the most prominent venture capitalists in the Silicon Valley, including Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Shasta Ventures. This funding is expected to go a long way in Vector Space Systems’ ambitious goals to make $1.5 million rockets that can carry small satellites into the orbit, and aspire to increase the efficiency to over 100 launches per year. Currently, the entire aerospace industry manage to launch so many spacecraft collectively. As per the co-founder and CEO of Vector Space Systems, the company has poured equal efforts onto fixing the launch problem as they did on building advanced rockets, something Elon Musk’s company ignored. As Jim Cantrell puts it, his company is trying to make the simplest of rockets, building them like sausages, and launching by the hundreds.

          Some notes on white monopoly capital: Definition, use and denial   

“The theoretical conclusions of the Communists are in no way based on ideas or principles that have been invented, or discovered, by this or that would-be universal reformer. They merely express, in general terms, actual relations springing from an existing class struggle, from a historical movement going on under our very eyes” - Manifesto of the Communist Party, 1848.

“Today, the main task of the working class is to abolish the white monopoly of power, to carry out the national democratic revolution for the liberation of African and other oppressed people”- Augmented Meeting of the Central Committee of the South African Communist Party, 1970.

“We have in the past defined the forces which the NDR sought to defeat as the white ruling class, represented by monopoly capitalism and including other class and social strata within the white community, all whom had an objective interest in the continuation of white minority rule”, ANC Discussion Document, Umrabulo 8, 2000.

1. Context

A narrative is now gaining momentum that the concept “white monopoly capital” is an invention of some public relations firm called Bell Pottinger, which was founded in 1987, and that it does not exist in the literature of the national liberation movement.

Some have continued to maintain that “white monopoly capital” does not exist, while others acknowledge that it exists but, fearing for their positions in white monopoly establishments, their deals and careers, they say it is harmful to investment to keep on referring to “white monopoly capital”.

But, is it really true that the concept, “white monopoly capital”, does not exist in the annals of the South African revolution?

In his recent Open Letter, Justice Pitso says something very profound, “…where the fundamental principles of our scientific revolutionary theory of Marxism-Leninism are concerned, the question of who is right or wrong cannot be judged necessarily on the basis of the view of the majority”.

In these notes, we show that the claim that the concept “white monopoly capital” cannot be found in the literature of the national liberation movement is not true. As we have said before in our input titled: “Concerning the Current Situation”, which appeared on 7 April 2017, this narrative which seeks to deny the existence of white monopoly capital, or white monopolisation of South Africa, is aimed at ideologically confusing black people in general, Africans in particular.

This is done so as to hide the real class force that wields power in South African society, the class force which is responsible for much of the poverty, starvation and suppression of talent that is experienced by black people.

Others have decided to give up on the real situation and lurch on to idealism. We are now informed that we should suppress the facts and ignore the national character of monopoly capital in South Africa. All of a sudden, monopoly capital has turned colourless as pure water. This is revisionism.

Writing in the New Age, Nelson Mandela had this to say: “The system of white supremacy has its roots in the cheap labour need of the major economic groups in the country. South Africa’s economy is dominated by giant monopolies in the gold mining industry linked with big financial and farming interests whose tentacles reach also into secondary industry. These groups have been responsible for the reserve system, migratory labour, the low wage policy. These groups own and control the national wealth of our country and determine the basic structure of the South African state ...”

Mandela continued to say: “If tomorrow every discriminatory law on the statute book were repealed, but the mineral wealth, monopoly industry and financial empires were not transferred to the ownership of the people as a whole, the system of white superiority would in its basic essentials be perpetuated for many generations.”

We are exactly where Nelson Mandela warned us we would be, if we did not transfer the basic wealth to the ownership of the people as a whole. As Mzwakhe said, “the people’s patience is not endless”!

Needless to say, the concept “white monopoly capital” is an invention of the South African Communist Party. It emerged in revolutionary literature for the first time in the SACP 1962 programme, The Road to South African Freedom. That was way before the founding of Bell Pottinger.

2. The motive forces: some critical thoughts on the National Democratic Revolution

Some time ago, in 2002, I wrote a paper titled “The motive forces: Some critical thoughts on the NDR”, which was published in Umrabulo Number 14, inspired by the SACP 1962. In that paper, I attempted to scientifically outline the alignment of class forces in the NDR. I sought to define what the class forces of the national democratic revolution are and the forces of the enemy.

At that time in 2002, as it is now, there was confusion on the issue that was peddled by the neoliberals in the ANC. The neoliberals, worked hard to empty the ANC of its revolutionary theory. There was a dominant tendency, as it is to this day, that made the ANC to rapidly depart from a consistent class analysis in the formulation of the Strategy and Tactics document.

When the question “who is the enemy of the NDR?” kept on being asked by ANC activists, we were constantly told that “the enemy of the NDR is poverty, unemployment and inequality”. When we responded by saying that the ANC has defined the enemy to be “white monopoly capital”, we were told, “that was in the past”, now we have to “fight poverty, unemployment and inequality”.

This was obviously unsatisfactory. As young people in the ANC-led movement, we started searching for answers; we felt as though our elders were hiding a “family secret”, because the answer they gave did not make sense.

Another reason that set me off to write that paper was what I perceived to be an error that some of the comrades were committing. They postured in a way that meant the black bourgeoisie as a whole was not part of the motive forces. They ridiculed and rejected the concept of a “patriotic bourgeoisie”. I still think it is wrong to reject this concept.

The issues that were at stake then are still at stake today. In a way, one could argue that, substantially at the theoretical level, the ANC has come full circle to the old debate which we hoped would animate theoretical discussion and change the contents of subsequent Strategy and Tactics documents. Alas, the paper failed to catch the attention of comrades.

In that paper, I stated that: “South Africa's social formation was characterised in the historical papers of the movement as a colonialism of a special type (CST). Because the concept of colonialism does not specify the nature of class relations it was important to move beyond the form of the social formation to its content. Colonialism of a special type was found to be perpetrated by a capitalist class. This class came to be known as "white monopoly capital".

I continued to assert that, “The movement characterised the principal contradiction in SA as between apartheid colonialism led by white monopoly capital on one side, and national liberation led by the black working class on the other side”.

In fact the whole paper is replete with the concept “white monopoly capital”. That was in 2002. My confession is that I had no idea that I was pushing a Bell Pottinger concept which was invented more than ten years later, after 2012!

  1. White monopoly capital: Definition

One of the most disturbing tendencies to emerge from the debate about white monopoly capital is that some contenders claim that white monopoly capital has not been defined. These contenders express their ignorance.

Here we begin with how the national liberation movement defined the main opponent of the South African revolution and the idea of “white monopolisation” of South Africa.

3.1 The South African Communist Party

3.1.1 Extracts from “The Road to South African Freedom, 1962”

“The three million Whites hold a monopoly of political rights and economic opportunities. They alone can vote for and be elected to Parliament and other governing bodies. They are fortified behind a wall of privilege in the civil service, in jobs and professions, in educational opportunities and a hundred other fields. 87 per cent of the land is reserved for White ownership, and White capitalists own and control the mines, factories and banks and most of commerce. Their government inculcates a lying and insulting doctrine of race superiority”.

“Effective economic domination in South Africa is thus exercised by an alliance of local White monopoly interests in mining, industry and agriculture, together with foreign imperialists and representatives of state monopoly capitalism. These interests have conflicts among themselves, which are reflected in the main White political parties and groupings. But they find common ground in the perpetuation of the colonial-type subjugation of the non-White population”.

“In fact, however, real power is in the hands of the monopolists who own and control the mines, the banks and finance houses, and most of the farms and major industries. The gold and diamond mines are owned by seven mining-financial corporations and controlled by a handful of powerful financiers. These seven corporations are closely linked with British and American imperialist interests. They control capital investment in mining alone of R490 million, and employ almost 500,000 workers. In addition, they dominate large sections of manufacturing industries. They are linked with the main banks, two of which control assets of over R2,000 million, mainly in the form of loans to industry, commerce and estate.

They own vast tracts of arable land and mining rights in almost every part of the country. In agriculture, too, monopoly dominates. 4 per cent of the farms make up an area amounting to almost four-tenths of the total White-owned farmland. Thus, in mining, industry, commerce and farming, monopolists dominate the country’s economy. They are also closely linked with state monopoly capital ventures, such as Iscor (Iron and Steel), Escom (Electricity) and Sasol (Petrol).

These monopolists are the real power in South Africa. The special type of colonialism in South Africa serves, in the first place, their interests”.

“All positions of economic strength and influence are held as the jealously guarded monopoly of members of the White group alone”.

Whites have a monopoly of the best paid jobs, and of entry into skilled trades”.

“The once powerful Labour Party is dead. The White trade unions — with a few honourable exceptions — collaborated in the implementation of apartheid in industry and job reservation. In fact, most of these unions have become little more than societies to preserve a White monopoly of skilled jobs. For the most part, the White workers of this country support their capitalist rulers and exploiters in the maintenance of White supremacy and colonialism”.

3.1.2 Extracts from the African National Congress

Extracts from the Green Book, 1979

“The  principal  enemy of our revolution  is   the South   African ruling   class, which  is  distinguished  by  a  combination  of  several  key             characteristics. Like     its counterparts in other    capitalist countries, its power  is  rooted, in the first instance,  in         its        ownership       and      control of         the basic    means  of  production.  But  in South Africa, the  system  of  economic  exploitation  is  reinforced  and  deepened  by the national oppression of the black majority.  Thus, capitalist exploitation and racial oppression operate together and reinforce one another”.

To  maintain this system and safeguard         its        control, the       ruling   class    operates through         a            state    apparatus        whose  political           institutions      and instruments   of repression  -  the army,   police force,   civil            service,  judiciary etc.      -  protect            the existing      relations of         production                  and,     at  the  same            time, the race      rule      which excludes all who     are       not       within  the white   minority group   from    political    rights and        civil     liberties           in         the       land     of  their  birth.  Real  liberation  is  inconceivable without  the overthrow  of  the  economic  and  political   power  of this      class    and      the total destruction of its state apparatus.                                       

Extracts from “The Nature of the South African Ruling Class, 1985”

“But the war had also defined the future relationship of Britain and South Africa: economically, South Africa would be a satellite of British imperialism, an outlet for the export of capital and a source of raw materials; politically, the local ruling class would be allowed autonomy and could even be granted sovereignty. By the terms of Vereeniging, Milnerian policy and finally the terms of Union, this ruling class was to be exclusively white. Thus the `small group which owns South Africa`s wealth` is drawn from one racial community, the whites”.

“The ruling class does not rule on its own, since it is a minority within the white minority. In order to secure its position, it has had to come to terms with other class forces; make deals and reach compromises with class forces and fractions whose interests temporarily intersect with its own. From such alliances has emerged what we can refer to as a bloc led by the ruling class, which wields power. The matrix that holds this bloc together is the ideology of white supremacy which projects the particular interest of the ruling capitalist class as the general interest of all whites”.

“This type of democratic state we envisage is spelt out in the ten clauses of the Freedom Charter. Though we place equal weight on the separate clauses, the first five, setting out the most pressing political, economic and social reforms a democratic state will have to embark on, can be said to be its core. The enactment of these measures will place political power in the hands of the black masses and transform South Africa from a country belonging to and exploited by a small class of white capitalists and their imperialist [backers], into a country belonging to all who live in it, black and white”.

Extracts from “Apartheid South Africa: Colonialism of a Special Type, 1987”.

“This is why the ANC has always considered the two economic clauses of the Freedom Charter: "The People Shall Share in the Country`s Wealth" and "The Land Shall Be Shared Among Those Who Work It" to be the very core of its programme. These clauses envisage the seizure of economic assets, presently owned and controlled either by individual capitalists or capitalist companies drawn exclusively from the white minority or trans-national corporations”.

“This hierarchy of oppression was devised as a tool of divide-and-rule, as an expression of the warped minds of the white racist ruling clique and as a tactic to buttress the forces which would have a stake in the system of apartheid to defend”.

Extracts from “Strategy and Tactics, 1997”

“Over time, the policies of government and the tactical sensibilities of some white monopolists, have precipitated a situation in which some of the black propertied classes are expanding their positions within important sectors of the economy”.

“However, the improvement in Black and female ownership and control of wealth and access to management and many professions is still limited, with overall proportions which are inversely related to the country`s demographics. This is more starkly reflected in terms of land ownership. As such, while progressive forces have attained political power, economic power remains largely in the hands of the white minority.”

4. White monopoly capital: Use

In this part of the notes, we show the use of the concept as such. The point to demonstrate is that those who say the concept “white monopoly capital” does not exist in the documents of the national liberation movement are wrong.

4.1.1 Extracts from the South African Communist Party

“At the same time, in order to guarantee the abolition of racial oppression and White minority domination, the Freedom Charter necessarily and realistically calls for profound economic changes: drastic agrarian reform to restore the land to the people; widespread nationalisation of key industries to break the grip of White monopoly capital on the main centres of the country’s economy; radical improvements in the conditions and standards of living for the working people”- The Road to South African Freedom, 1962. [This is the first time the phrase “white monopoly capital”, appears in the literature of the national liberation movement].

“The form of domination developed by the Union of South Africa also perpetuated the racialised economic structures of the pre-Union period. There was a white monopoly of capitalist means of mining, industrial and agricultural production and of distribution. There was also a virtual white monopoly of skilled and supervisory jobs in the division of labour”- Path to Power, 1989.

“The struggle for national democracy is also an expression of the class contradiction between the black and democratic forces on the one hand, and the monopoly capitalists on the other. The stranglehold of a small number of white monopoly capitalists over the great bulk of our country`s wealth and resources is based on colonial dispossession and promotes racial oppression. This concentration of wealth and power perpetuates the super-exploitation of millions of black workers. It perpetuates the desperate plight of millions of the landless rural poor. And it blocks the advance of black business and other sectors of the oppressed. This reality, therefore, forms the basis of the antimonopoly content of the national democratic programme”-Path to Power, 1989.

“This is not to argue that the economic dominance enjoyed by white-dominated monopoly capital with its strong international links should be ignored. The SACP, in evaluating the first decade of our democracy, came to the conclusion that in economic terms white-dominated monopoly capital was the single biggest beneficiary, at the direct expense of the working class, which experienced casualisation, a job loss bloodbath and outsourcing. Therefore the first decade of our democracy, in economic terms, became the decade of the white-dominated bourgeoisie, joined by a small black elite”-The South African Road to Socialism.

“White monopoly capital in South Africa has, in fact, been the principal beneficiary of the post-1994 period. There is stabilisation and restored profitability, and many of our major corporations have used the period to trans-nationalise, some locating their head-quarters outside of South Africa, others re-locating major share-listings to foreign stock exchanges”. (Two steps forward…two steps back…SACP perspectives on the ANC’s draft Strategy and Tactics 2007, Bua Komanisi Volume 6 - Issue 1, May 2007).

“This central tenet is quite distinct from the core perspective of what we might call the “1988 class project” – we are referring to the strategic agenda of white monopoly capital that evolved primarily in the late 1980s”. (Seeing Double, SACP contribution to the debate on the ANC’s “Economic Transformation for a National Democratic Society” discussion paper).

“By the second half of the 1980s, the apartheid-colonial state and its deepening crisis had, however, indeed become an impediment to sustained growth for white monopoly capital”.

“The continued presence of this 1988 white monopoly class project within our own thinking is visible in parts of the current ANC policy discussion document”.

“Leaving aside the passing reference to a “democratic and redistributive state” which has its own problems and to which we will return below, it is obvious that, in the key concepts it evokes, this paragraph is located within the “liberate the market from apartheid constraints” paradigm of the 1988 white monopoly class project”.

“Clearly in the very last years of apartheid, white monopoly capital experienced regional and global mobility challenges – and, while removing mobility constraints on capital may or may not be one of our tasks, it can hardly be the central strategic task of the NDR to help white monopoly capital to recover its regional and global mobility”.

“But to rise to the challenge of that vision we will have to finally banish the ghost of the 1988 (white monopoly capital) class project from our imaginations, from our practice and…from our discussion papers!”

 “This impact has been deepened by the assiduous cultivation by white monopoly capital of a tiny stratum of ANC-linked black shareholders and board-members in the name of “black economic empowerment”.

“The two allies resolved to stand shoulder-to-shoulder, together with the ANC, in the struggle to deepen our national democratic revolution, to end the national oppression of the majority, the super-exploitation of workers by white monopoly capitalism and the triple oppression faced by women, in order to create a new non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous South Africa” (SACP-COSATU Bilateral, 3 April 2012).

We can thus see that the concept “white monopoly capital” is integral to the revolutionary theory of the national liberation movement. It originated from the classic SACP 1962 programme, and has since been used in various versions to explain the nature of South African society.

5. Leaders who used the concept

Several leaders of the national liberation movement emphasised white monopolisation and the dominance of white monopoly capital in the South African economy. In this part of the notes, we highlight a few instances where white monopoly and white monopoly capital were used explicitly. Here we just highlight a few instances to demonstrate the point.

Nelson Mandela 1990

“Our discussion on Strategy and Tactics began by recognising that the ANC and the De Klerk government approach the issue of negotiations with opposed agendas. The government`s aim is to reform the apartheid system out of existence while carrying over into the future the accumulated privileges and advantages the white monopoly on power” ( Speech by Nelson Mandela at an ANC rally after the close of the National Consultative Conference, 16 December 1990).

Joe Slovo 1988

“The immediate primacy of the struggle against race tyranny flows from the concrete realities of our existing situation. The concept of national domination is not a mystification to divert us from class approaches; it infects every level of class exploitation. Indeed, it divides our working class into colour compartments. Therefore, unusual categories such as 'white working class' and 'black working class' are not 'unscientific' but simply describe the facts.

We will come back to the need for immediate steps to be taken in the post-apartheid period to break the economic stranglehold of the monopolies and to transform a major portion of wealth from private into social property. Suffice it to say that such measures will, of necessity, result in an immediate sizeable contraction of the private sector. Ninety nine per cent of this sector is presently owned and controlled by white capitalists; a race monopoly which constitutes the key instrument of national domination.

In the world as a whole, capitalist exploitation does not necessarily involve race domination. But the historically-evolved connection between capitalist exploitation and race domination in South Africa creates a link between national liberation and social emancipation. In our conditions you don't have to be a doctrinaire Marxist to conclude that a liberation which deals only with a rearrangement of the voting system and leaves undisturbed the race monopoly of 99% of our wealth, is no liberation at all” (Joe Slovo, The South African Working Class and the National Democratic Revolution, 1988).

Blade Nzimande

“The call for only organised workers to make sacrifices, without calling for the same from white monopoly capital, is essentially a reactionary call for the maintenance of the super-exploitation of the black working class.” (Blade Nzimande, Address to COSATU Congress, September 18, 1997)

“The single biggest obstacle to the development of the SME and co-operative sector is the lack of finance. In the South African context we have a financial sector that is structured and geared towards supporting white monopoly capital”, (Blade Nzimande, Address to NAFCOC AGM, 4 October 2007 - Durban International Convention Centre).

“The above might appear to be just skirmishes, but in essence they are a reflection of the dominant and suffocating power of the monopolistic white finance capital in the South African economy, and the extent to which our own government is unwilling to confront this power”, (Blade Nzimande, The financial sector charter is on the brink of collapse, Umsebenzi Volume 6, No. 21, 21 November 2007).

“One thread that runs through all the groupings that have broken away or engaged in factionalist activity in our liberation movement is their anti-communism and anti-worker attitude, often expressing itself in exactly the same way as that of the apartheid regime and white monopoly capital”, (Blade Nzimande, The good boys and girls, the boss-class instruments’: The 2008 dissidents in their historical context, Umsebenzi Online 5 November 2008).

Jeremy Cronin

“In 1979 SASOL was privatised by the apartheid regime, with shares being sold at a discount to (white) monopoly capital, particularly in the mining sector” (Jeremy Cronin, Address to the SACTWU 12th Congress, 22 August 2013).

Sdumo Dlamini

“As COSATU, we are now moving forward to build unity of the federation on the ground through activities which takes us closer to the members and position us to heighten our battle against employers and white monopoly capital which is our primary enemy”, (Sdumo Dlamini, COSATU President, Address to the COSATU Gauteng Provincial Congress, 4 August 2015).

Mbhazima Shilowa

“As I  have  indicated  in  the past,  we  need to send     a clear message  that   the time for  white  monopoly  capital  to  pay  lip service to economic transformation and empowerment,  especially      for  women,  is  past     and      will  not  be rewarded  in Gauteng” (Mbhazima Shilowa, Address by Premier Mbhazima Shilowa at the Gauteng BBBEE Strategy launch, 18 April 2006).

Zwelinzima Vavi

“Economic power is still in the hands of white monopoly capital. The aspirant and vocal black bourgeoisie remains numerically small and depends heavily on the state and white business for its survival”, Zwelinzima Vavi, COSATU General Secretary at the SACP Special Congress, 08 April 2005).

Fikile “Slovo” Majola

“Using the superficial banner of our Constitution, the strategic opponent of the NDR – white monopoly capital which includes bourgeois monopoly media houses and its global imperialist connections – is increasingly setting itself on a political collision course with the ANC as part of this wider anti-majoritarian offensive” (Fikile “Slovo” Majola, Joe Slovo Memorial Lecture in North West, 27th January 2013).

Jacob Mamabolo

“But we also said at that Special National Congress that the momentum, pace and character of the NDR is deeply and severely constrained by the pain inflicted on the working class by the persistent and reproduced legacy of the Colonialism of a Special type. The working class in our country continues to suffer the pain inflicted by the many years of the crisis of white monopoly capital and its private accumulation of wealth. (Jacob Mamabolo, Acting Gauteng SACP Provincial Secretary, Message of Support to the 11th Gauteng Provincial Conference, 6-8 May 2010).

We can therefore see that this concept is standard in the language of the national liberation movement. Our own submission is that the concept of white monopoly capital simultaneously implies colonialism of a special type. The two concepts are theoretically inter-twined, one cannot exist without the other. To fail to mention the racial character of monopoly capital is to fail to acknowledge the colonial character of South Africa and the special nature of that colonialism.

6. White monopoly capital: Denials

It is to Hillary Joffe’s credit, in her article “Share ownership can be force for change”, published in the Business Day on 22 March 2017, to note that “We’re told UK’s public relations agency Bell Pottinger crafted the white monopoly capital narrative. Whoever did so seems sadly unfamiliar with Marxist texts from which the notion of monopoly capital comes”. We agree!

However Joffe then makes an unwarranted statement: “…in its original form monopoly capital could not, strictly speaking, have been white, black or any other colour. It was, rather, a particular stage of capitalism, and who owned the means of production didn’t have much to do with it”.

Now this is the problem of failing to express actual relations which arise from the historical movement going under our very eyes.

As Pitso correctly mentions in his Open Letter, it was Lenin who first elaborated in detail the idea of monopoly capitalism as a stage in the development of capitalism. However Lenin’s approach was concrete and historical, in that he understood the importance of identifying who owns the means of production in this stage because he was not just interested in interpreting the world, he wanted to change it.

That is why to us to specify who owns and controls monopoly capital, because our lived experiences, under our very eyes, dictate to us who is responsible for poverty, starvation and marginalisation, so that we can devise proper strategy and tactics to change this situation. Baran and Sweezy as well, did not elaborate the concept of “monopoly capital” in purely abstract terms, they in fact based their study on the concrete history of the United States, and they hinted that some of their conclusions may in fact apply in South Africa.

Baran and Sweezy’s concrete and historical articulation of the concept of monopoly capital leads them to dedicate a whole chapter (Chapter 9), on monopoly capital and race relations, which makes them also mention South Africa. In this chapter they show that “all the forces we have been discussing…are deeply rooted in monopoly capitalism and together are strong enough to account for the fact that Negroes have been unable to rise out of the lower depths of American society”.

Who owns and controls the means of production under monopoly capitalism mattered to Baran and Sweezy, because they would not have dedicated a chapter specifically dealing with the suppression and marginalisation of the Negroes, if the demographic composition of American monopoly capital was non-racial.

Furthermore, the fact that Baran and Sweezy criticise American monopoly capital on the “Negro question”, does not mean that they posit “Negro monopoly capital” as a solution to the “Negro problem”, as some of our intellectually dishonest detractors like to do. In other words, when we criticise white monopoly capital, we do not posit black monopoly capital as a solution. Instead, we posit democratic state monopoly of the strategic sectors under working class leadership as the solution.

But then, despite this repeated clarification, our detractors continue to deny the concept. For instance Jeremy Cronin, First Deputy General Secretary of the SACP, now claims:

“There is a world at play in the slippage between a consistent Marxist perspective and the illusions that arise from adding one small word "white" to "monopoly capital". And it is in this small slippage that you will find the ideological bed on which the Polokwane "marriage of convenience" was consecrated. When the "new tendency" and its demagogic vanguard rail against "white monopoly capital" what they are hearing is "white" and what they are thinking is "it`s our turn now". And while populist demagogues might scream about "imperialism" and "monopoly capital" – the threats to carry out nationalization and expropriation simply increase (as they are meant to) the length of the queues of wealthy supplicants outside their office doors, the numbers of sponsorships, the gifts of whisky and helicopter trips they are offered from the very monopoly capital they are threatening!” (Thinking about class - Part One: What were they doing in BUSA in the first place?, Bua Komanisi Volume 10 Number 15, 20 July 2011).

Thus to Cronin this concept derives its ideological basis from the “Polokwane marriage of convenience”, which was in 2007. But we all know that there was no “Polokwane marriage” in 1962!

In his response to Fikile Mbalula, Trevor Manuel writes:

“If you also took the trouble to read the Economics Resolutions of each ANC Conference since the 49th in 1994, you will not find the language of 'White Monopoly Capital' in any of them. This is because WMC is not part of the lexicon of terms used in ANC policy. It was conjured up as a red herring to obscure the misdeeds of the Guptas and those who benefit from their patronage network” (Fikile, do you remember the tears you shared over the Guptas? Daily Maverick, 09 June 2015).

This statement is very revealing. We can only underline the words “each ANC Conference since the 49th in 1994”. What about the ANC before 1994? What is it about the year 1994 which made the concept “white monopoly capital” to disappear?

Then Manuel makes the claim:

“I stand by what I said at the Nelson Mandela Foundation: the term "White Monopoly Capital" was conjured up by Bell Pottinger on behalf of the Guptas, and filtered into the political discourse to serve their agenda” (Fikile, do you remember the tears you shared over the Guptas? Daily Maverick, 09 June 2015).

In his rebuttal, Fikile Mbalula quoted the article I wrote, which he incorrectly attributes to the ANC. But the point he makes nevertheless remains valid, the concept was there long before the current talk about Bell Pottinger; it was not conjured up by Bell Pottinger.

Trevor Manuel has yet to sustain his argument.

As we have noted, a variation of the concept appears to have mistakenly slipped through into the 1997 ANC Strategy and Tactics, where the ANC spoke about “white monopolists”, or in 2000, where the ANC spoke about “the white ruling class, represented by monopoly capital and including other class and social strata within the white community”.

In his address to the SACP Imbizo held in 2017, the Secretary General of the ANC, Gwede Mantashe said:

“There is an attempt to vulgarise monopoly capital debate; today vocabulary talks about white monopoly capital. It is vulgarisation of the revolution. We then use that vulgarised terminology to deal with each other”.

We all know that the SACP 1962 programme was not a vulgar programme and neither was the SACP 1989 programme vulgar Marxism.

The General Secretary of the SACP, in his address to the COSATU Central Committee in 2017, claimed:

“There is a new phrase that we do not have by the way…white monopoly capital. It’s not anywhere in the documents of the movement. I am challenging you to go. This thing is Gupta-inspired by this public relations company Bell Pottinger by the way, that is now in the emails that are being spoken about…”

But on several occasions he used the concept.

The SACP created this concept in its programme of 1962.

          NETIZEN: MRT BREAKDOWNS ARE NOT ALL SMRT'S FAULT, SIGNAL TESTING IS TRICKY & HARD   

<Credits: mikey1986>

I try to minimize my complaints about our rail transit system because I personally think it is much maligned. That said, the recent spate of disruptions has been bad. And the announcement that it will take 4-6 months to iron out the kinks is testing even my patience. I've been caught in the congestion the last 2 days. What is going on, and is SMRT deserving of all the brickbats it's getting? I think it's not all their fault.

First off, having taken public transport overseas, I think Singaporeans are quite spoiled when it comes to our commuter rail. It is relatively cheap and the wait times are tolerable. And there's 4G in the tunnels. I think the problem is that people are comparing it to what they remembered in the 1990s and early 2000s, when seats were abundant and delays were rare. So what happened? 4 main factors, I think, have contributed to the underlying problem (signaling fiasco aside): increasing ridership, ageing infrastructure, poor urban planning and incompatible immigration policies and insufficient maintenance. Only the last one is SMRT's fault.

1. Ridership is a huge factor. Another subway line facing similar issues is the NYC subway. The system is aging badly, as it is 120 years old in some places. But the main problem is the relentless increase in ridership, for very little increase in network length. This causes compounding problems because more riders increases the loading times at stations, which causes knock-on ripple delays. The system was designed for 30 seconds at each station, but the more the passengers, the longer they take at each station, resulting in more congestion. In ops management this is called a queueing problem. Unfortunately the only solution is to increase the number of trains or lines, both of which have long lead times. Read more here: https://nyti.ms/2uhnd4h

The increased ridership isn't SMRT's fault. If anything, it is the govt which may have underestimated the ridership growth or otherwise didn't fully account for it when planning immigration policy. Our trunk lines (NSEW) were not designed with the current ridership figures in mind. They were designed more than a decade before our govt embarked on its massive immigration policy.

2. Aging equipment. Our SMRT uses a mix of rolling stock, with the latest new build C151A models being less than 3 years old, and some of the original Kawasaki C151s in service since 1987 still running. The design lifespan for such trains is about 40 years, which means that the C151s are nearing the end of the so-called bathtub curve. Basically, after the initial infant mortality phase, equipment will enjoy a long period of low malfunctions, before gradually increasing at an increasing rate until retirement. Likewise for the signaling systems and the electrical relays in the original track sections.

3. Also, urban planning and immigration policy (which SMRT has no control over) have a huge impact on rail congestion. The addition of hundreds of thousands of sq ft of office space in the downtown area, without a commensurate increase in rail network there, has no doubt contributed to the congestion. I think, for example, that the Marina Bay Area should have been developed as a recreational space rather than a bigger CBD. A satellite CBD should've instead been set up, like Canary Wharf in London. Changi Business Park is a step in the right direction.

4. Finally, what I think is SMRT's fault: I think during the Saw Phaik Wah years, they (reportedly) scrimped on maintenance in favour of aggressive retail (and hence revenue) expansion. The amount they spent on maintenance as a % of revenues was significantly below what HK's MTR spends. This was a mistake. Like how brushing teeth daily keeps cavities away, routine maintenance isn't something that should be scrimped on. By the time you have gum disease and cavities, the options you have are costly and may not leave you as good as before.

So, that's the underlying problem. What about the testing, which has unleashed this round of chaos?

"What are they testing?" Some of my friends believe they are covering up track faults under the guise of testing. But if you follow the news, SMRT is rolling out communications based train control (CBTC) systems to replace the fixed block system in 2017. The original system breaks the track into fixed 500m blocks, with a minimum separation of 1 empty block between trains. This means that to maintain a separation between trains ("headway") of 500m, you get gaps of up to 1000m. With CBTC, each train constantly tells the system where it is, and a constant 500m gap can be maintained. This will allow trains to run closer during peak periods, giving a modest but noticeable frequency boost especially during the peak periods.

"Should they be testing it live now? Clearly it's not ready!" Actually, the system was tested during the off peak periods starting in March this year. But at some point, live testing has to happen. Dynamic commuter loads and passenger flows are chaotic and sensitive systems that defy accurate simulation. The only way to verify it is to test it live. There may also be timing factors outside of SMRT's control that come from LTA or transport ministry side.

"Why didn't we see this problem with other lines when they started out? What's gone wrong now?" In engineering, there is a difference between clean sheet designs ("greenfield") and retrofits ("brownfield") designs. Brownfield designs are trickier because there are interactions with legacy infrastructure that may be obsolete or incompatible.

In conclusion, I believe Desmond is no fool. SMRT's maintenance spend has increased since SPW's era (although I haven't checked the most recent figures against MTR's). Things feel like they're deteriorating, but as outlined above, some of the factors are beyond SMRT's control. And they are trying. Ultimately I think it's going to get worse before it gets better. By all means, grumble. It is our god given right to grumble! But we should hopefully do so with a better understanding of the underlying causes. If you've made it this far, sorry for wall of text! I got kinda carried away adding more and more points from stuff I'd read up about in the past.

Disclaimer: I'm no expert in public transit systems, but this is what I've gathered from what I've read.

          Frustrated with Washington, scientists and academics jump into electoral politics   

Patrick Madden has taught and conducted research in computer science for close to 20 years at Binghamton University of the State University of New York. Were the political situation any different in Washington, he said he would be happy to continue doing just that. Instead, he’s running for Congress in New York’s 22nd District.

“The last few years, the political debate has been separated from reality where politicians can say nearly anything. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or false. People don’t even bat an eye,” he said. “I’m going to do my best to haul the discussion back towards reality.”

Madden is just one of a handful of scientists jumping into unfamiliar territory by launching campaigns for elected office. Organizations working with those candidates hope to field a small wave of scientist candidates across the country in response to an administration and Congress they say have disregarded science to an unprecedented degree.

Scientists, academics and medical professionals have been wary of President Trump since his campaign was still a White House long shot and he was calling global warming a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese government. But since his election victory, his approach to science has continued to alarm scientists and others concerned with evidence-based policy making -- from key cabinet appointments to muzzling of scientists in some federal agencies and huge cuts to research funding in the White House budget. For many the dangerous decision making culminated in Trump’s announcement that he would withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accords.

Frustrations with the administration helped spur one of the largest ever protests in support of science -- the March for Science in April. That event helped get many campus-based researchers and students of science out of the classroom and into the streets. It also connected many with tools and training to better communicate about the value of science to the general public.

Even before the march, though, some organizers were working to find candidates with science backgrounds to run for office. Perhaps the most prominent of those groups is 314 Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group that splits its resources between electoral politics and pro-science advocacy.

“The joke that I tell is we’re like Emily’s List for nerds,” said Ted Bordelon, the national spokesman for 314, referring to the political action committee that supports pro-choice Democratic women candidates.

Bordelon said 314 recruits and trains candidates with any kind of background in a STEM field, from a bachelor of science to a Ph.D. The group has had about 6,000 individuals participate in candidate training across the country through online webinars and in-person events.

Madden is among the candidates working with 314. Others are running for everything from school board to Congress.

In California’s 48th Congressional District, stem-cell researcher Hans Keirstead announced plans this summer to run as a Democrat against Republican incumbent Dana Rohrabacher, a noted skeptic of the scientific consensus on climate change. Volcanologist Jess Phoenix is running against Republican Steve Knight in California’s 25th District.

And Lamar Smith, the Republican chair of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, has drawn an opponent in Texas’s 21st District seeking to make hay of Smith’s anti-science views. While not a scientist himself, Democrat Derrick Crowe has worked as an organizer on climate change in Texas and described himself to Mother Jones as an “unabashed nerd and unapologetic advocate for science and reason.”

Smith, meanwhile, has made enemies of prominent scientists like Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University. Smith, a hard-core climate denier, responded to a paper on climate change from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration by issuing a subpoena to the director of the agency. Smith and Rohrabacher are two of the incumbents being targeted by 314 in the next congressional campaign cycle.

Kevork Abazajian, associate professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Irvine, said jumping into politics comes more naturally to candidates from the legal profession and other fields. Candidates from STEM backgrounds often haven’t been involved in politics since they were in college or don’t find it easy to step away from the lab for a months-long campaign, he said.

“It doesn’t make them unqualified to be political candidates or political representatives. They just have to learn how it works because they’re not as involved in it,” said Abazajian, 314’s volunteer state coordinator in California.

In that role, he has frequent discussions with individuals considering runs for office about how to set up a campaign, raise funds, manage staff and communicate with the media. Abazajian said each candidate the group supports will run on a message tailored to their district -- they won’t have a set of common talking points on national policy issues. But those candidates will presumably push for more federal support of research funding and regulations based on recommendations of scientific experts over industry. But he said electing more scientists would shift the temperament and policy making in Congress.

“They are middle-of-the-road. They are not ideological,” he said. “They go where the data takes them.”

The group has endorsed Keirstead and this week will issue an endorsement of Democrat Chrissy Houlahan, an Air Force veteran with a master of science in technology and policy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Houlahan is running against Republican Representative Ryan Costello in Pennsylvania’s Sixth District.

It would probably be fair to expect that successful candidates with science backgrounds would back more federal funding of scientific research -- an issue frequently cited by attendees at the March for Science in April. And university groups have been vocal critics of the Trump administration’s Muslim travel ban, a policy that adversely affected many researchers, academics and students with ties to the countries involved.

Madden, the Binghamton professor, describes himself as a left-leaning, progressive Democrat and said he supports increasing the minimum wage, investing in universities and reducing the cost of college for students. He also opposes the White House travel ban. Although his district leans GOP, he said he could attract enough support from voters of both parties to defeat incumbent Representative Claudia Tenney, a Republican and Trump ally.

Tenney last year was one of 20 Republicans to join the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, which was set up to explore policy responses to the impacts of climate change. But this year she said Trump “showed leadership” by withdrawing from the Paris accord.

Jason Westin, a Houston oncologist who leads a team of cancer researchers at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, said he had not planned to run for office before last November’s election. But Westin, who worked on health-care policy in the Senate before going to medical school, said he’s seen traditional respect for science come under attack by the current administration. He’s one of several Democrats running to challenge Republican Representative John Culberson in Texas’s Seventh Congressional District, one of two seats in the state Democrats plan to target next year.

“We need people who understand science, need people who understand the consequences of disrespect for science to stop complaining and do something,” Westin said.

As chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science, Culberson has frequently overridden the judgment of NASA leadership. He’s also criticized the Environmental Protection Agency and cast doubt on the science of climate change -- two issues where Westin said he would seek to draw a contrast with the incumbent in his campaign.

He also said the proposed cuts to the National Institutes of Health in the White House budget would have an outsize effect on the district.

"If we don’t get grants to labs, those jobs are gone," he said. "These are not academic points that don't have any real-life practicality. These are things that have a real impact on the local economy and are key for vibrant societies."

While 314, an early supporter of the March for Science, is only supporting Democratic candidates, the march has remained nonpartisan. Caroline Weinberg, a co-chair of the march, said the organization won't be involved in activity connected to specific candidates or potential candidates for office.

"The March for Science brought together an incredible community of organizers who are interested in ensuring that science and the scientific community plays a more active role in public policy. In the two months since the march, we’ve been working with these hundreds of satellite-event organizers to shape our priorities as we move forward as an organization," Weinberg said in an email. "We’re still having specific discussions about the role we’ll play in 2018. But regardless of the election season, the March for Science will continue to be active in speaking up when science is threatened or ignored by policy makers at all levels of government and in encouraging people to advocate for science and evidence-based policy."

Rush Holt, the president and CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a high-profile supporter of the march, said he gets phone calls every year from scientists considering a run for office. But Holt, who taught physics before serving in the State Department and then Congress, said he’s received more of those calls this year than any other.

“They have the usual concern -- can a scientist do it? And of the course the answer is yes, no better or worse than anyone else can,” he said. “Which is to say it’s hard work for anybody to do it and the odds are against you any time you try to break into politics. But it’s something I encourage scientists to do.”

Holt said scientists have traditionally stayed out of politics, partly because they do not want to be seen as partisan. But increasingly their input has been ignored by lawmakers, he said.

“We’d be glad to see more scientists in office if that means science and scientific evidence are better integrated into legislation and policy making,” Holt said. “Sometimes it seems that the only way that that happens is by having trained scientists and engineers and friends of science in the policy-making process.”

          ICA at VCU will Open in Richmond Spring 2018   

Virginia Commonwealth University today announced its new Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) will open in Spring 2018. The new opening date is based on a revised schedule for the completion of construction and the subsequent adjustment of the internal climate before art can be installed. The ICA is already active in Richmond and on VCU's campus through programs, faculty and student collaboration, and artistic commissions, and will continue to engage the VCU and Richmond communities through special programs prior to the opening.

The new contemporary art institution is designed by Steven Holl Architects and located at the intersection of Richmond's historic Belvidere and Broad streets, one of the city's busiest junctures. The ICA provides a striking new gateway for Richmond, with dual entrances opening to the city's arts district on one side and VCU's Monroe Park campus on the other. Free of charge to all visitors, the ICA will be a significant new cultural resource for Richmond and VCU, in direct dialogue with VCU School of the Arts, the #1-ranked public graduate school of art and design in the U.S. The ICA will offer a vital new dimension to a premier urban research university, and contribute to a national and international cultural dialogue. With nearly 41,000 square feet of flexible space, including an inviting 33-foot high central forum, the non-collecting ICA will feature a dynamic slate of changing exhibitions, performances, films, and interdisciplinary programs. The Markel Center's fluid spaces are designed to support the diverse practices characteristic of the art of today, mirroring VCU's interdisciplinary approach and supporting the varied needs of contemporary art and audiences.

The ICA's inaugural exhibition, Declaration, will explore contemporary art's power to catalyze change, and will feature painting, sculpture, multimedia works, site-specific installations, and time-based performances by emerging and established artists. Featuring new work by artists from around the globe, including Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr., Marinella Senatore, Paul Rucker, and Cassils, the exhibition will also include artists from Richmond's vibrant arts community, such as VCUarts Associate Professor Hope Ginsburg and VCU alum Levester Williams.

"While we are eager to unveil the Markel Center to the community this spring, we are committed to ensuring that contemporary art thrives beyond an institution's bounds," said ICA Director Lisa Freiman. "We are all working hard to realize the vision and mission of the ICA, and will continue to mount dynamic programs for our VCU and Richmond communities while we plan for our launch."

"The ICA is exemplary of VCU's dedication to the arts, and to the university's belief in the importance of contemporary art and creative discourse in an engaging education," said VCU President Michael Rao. "We are looking forward to experiencing its full program this spring, and cementing Richmond as one of the world's important contemporary art centers."

About the ICA's Design

The open design of the ICA features a series of dynamic exhibition and programming spaces across its three levels that allow for creative opportunities that engage the unfixed and multidirectional nature of contemporary art. The glass walls and windows create continuity between the interior and exterior spaces of the building. On the first floor, a 4,000-square-foot gallery and large café, bar, and retail space radiate from the ICA's central forum and frame an outdoor garden, which Steven Holl describes as the "Thinking Field," that will be used for social gatherings, temporary art installations, and public programs. The first floor also features a state-of-the-art 240-seat auditorium for film screenings, live performances, lectures, and community programs.

The second floor includes two forking galleries and an adaptable learning lab for interactive educational engagement that will be open to the public. It also includes an accessible terrace-one of the four green roofs-that will be programmed with art works and available for special events. The soaring 33-foot-high gallery on the ICA's third floor will feature large-scale installations and experimental projects. The third floor also houses one of the administrative suites and the boardroom. Additional staff offices are located in the building's lower level, which also includes a lobby for visitors, art storage and preparation facilities, a fabrication workshop, a green room, the catering kitchen, and general storage.

In keeping with VCU's master sustainability plan, the ICA's design incorporates state of the art technologies and environmentally conscious design elements, and makes use of numerous natural resources. The pre-weathered, satin-finish zinc exterior of the Markel Center, which houses the ICA, includes interspersed clear- and translucent-glass walls and skylights that infuse the building with natural light and lessen the reliance on nonrenewable energy. These include the use of geothermal wells to provide heating and cooling energy for the building, and four green roofs to absorb storm water, offset carbon emissions, and maximize insulation. Native plantings include wood oats, little bluestem, Pennsylvania sedge, and goldenrod. Building materials include Virginia bluestone and custom glass cavity walls, designed to exhaust heat in the summer and harness it in the winter. The project is designed to meet LEED Gold Certification standards.

About the ICA's Capital Campaign and Endowment

The ICA has raised more than $36 million in private funds to date toward its goal of $41 million for construction. An endowment campaign is also ongoing. The ICA is the largest privately funded arts project in VCU's history and is supported by generous leadership gifts from ICA Campaign Co-Chairs Steve and Kathie Markel, and Pam and Bill Royall. Additional major donors include: John David and Meg Newell Gottwald, George W. and Helen H. B. Logan, True and Charlie Luck, Markel Corporation, Abby W. Moore, NewMarket Corporation, The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, Patsy K. and Hunter R. Pettus, Jr., and Carolyn and John Snow.

          Nasa-Aufnahmen zeigen eine der schlimmsten Katastrophen seit 10.000 Jahren   

Vergangenen Freitag haben die zwei Nasa-Satelliten Aqua und NPP Bilder der verheerenden Flächenbrände in Sibirien aufgenommen. Die Konsequenzen des Feuers sind noch schlimmer, als die Fotos zeigen können. 

Sibirien wird jedes Jahr von verheerenden Bränden heimgesucht

Die Flächenfeuer vernichten große Teile des borealen Waldes (boreal bezeichnet den nördlichsten Waldtypus der Erde)

Der Klimawandel ist schuld daran, dass die Häufigkeit der Brände im Laufe der vergangenen Jahrzehnte zugenommen hat. Das Feuer bricht immer wieder aufs Neue aus — und das bereits seit mehr als 10.000 Jahren. Doch aufgrund der Erwärmung der Erde werden immer mehr Waldbrände erwartet. 

Gerade brennt wieder Wald in Sibirien. Seit Ende Juni steht ein großes Gebiet in Flammen, bereits 535 Quadratkilometer Baumbestand ist niedergebrannt. 

Der Klimawandel macht sich auf der ganzen Welt bemerkbar, doch am stärksten sind die nördlichsten Zipfel der Erde betroffen. Seit November liegt die Temperatur in Sibirien vier Grad Celsius über dem Durchschnitt. Je wärmer und trockener es dort wird, desto anfälliger sind die Wälder für das Feuer. 



Das ist ein großes Problem:

Die Bäume absorbieren jährlich etwa 500 Millionen Tonnen Kohlenstoffdioxid (CO2) aus der Atmosphäre. Die Dezimierung durch die Brände ist eine massive Bedrohung des Prozesses. 

Vergangenen Freitag haben zwei Nasa-Satelliten den zerstörerischen Einfluss der Flächenbrände auf die Region aufgenommen. Der Satellit Aqua hat einige Brände und Rauchwolken entdeckt, der Satellit Suomi NPP hat die Luftqualität gemessen. 

Die schlimmsten Auswirkungen zeigen die Bilder jedoch nicht. Die borealen Wälder Sibiriens machen etwa zehn Prozent der Oberfläche unseres Planeten aus, sie beherbergen 30 Prozent des Kohlenstoffdioxids der Erde. Brennen die Wälder, dann entsteht dabei nicht nur eine riesige Menge CO2, die in die Atmosphäre strömt, sondern wir verlieren auch eine Menge Bäume, die das bereits in der Atmosphäre vorhandene CO2 absorbieren können. 



Feuer am Baikal-See

Das wiederum führt zu noch mehr Klimaerwärmung und damit auch zu mehr Waldbränden. Ein Teufelskreis. 

Die Waldbrände tragen auch dazu bei, dass die Antarktis noch schneller also ohnehin schon abtaut. Rußwolken ziehen über das Eis, lagern sich darauf ab und verdunkeln die Oberfläche. Das führt dazu, dass mehr Sonne absorbiert wird.

Doch nicht nur Sibirien ist betroffen. Es gibt auch verheerende Flächenbrände in Afrika, Kanada, Australien und Portugal. Auch davon haben die beiden Nasa-Sonden Aufnahmen gemacht.

          The Optimist - ANATHEMA   
The cover of ANATHEMA's 2001 release "A Fine Day to Exit" depicts a car in an empty beach at day, a car in a road at night. Now with "The Optimist", the group's eleventh album, it has picked up that concept again, doing so right off the bat with the opening track, "32.63N 117.14W". These are the actual coordinates for San Diego's Silver Strand beach, which is the last known location of the storyline's character known as The Optimist, a personification of the band members' hopes, fears and thoughts. Less experimental than previous album, 2014's "Distant Satellites", "The Optimist" is more organic by design, and decidedly so, as the band recorded it together as a unit live. The result is a significantly more fluid take on the approach and sound it has grown toward over the years. The group is completely unrecognizable from the death/doom band it once was, but its subsequent flirtation with gothic metal underscores its approach to emotional, sedative rock music, notably on the title track. Luscious, layered guitars weave in and out of pulsing electronics in a hypnotizing way. ANATHEMA can take listeners into a dreamlike state, and with great subtlety, the band builds crescendos that can take one's breath away, nearly pulling your heart strings right out of your chest at times, as they do with "San Francisco", for instance. The proceedings seem to drift along midway through the release, however, with the plodding nature of "Ghost" standing out at as the releases low point. This is before the up-tempo swing of "Can't Let Go" saves the day with elegant vocals and soothing, seesaw guitar lines that shimmer and shine in a way that might appeal to fans of Post-Britpop. "The Optimist" requires patience to fully appreciate, yet there is an immediacy to the songs unlike ever before. In terms of the narrative, the album starts with the sounds of someone walking out from the ocean, trudging through the sand and gasping for air before getting in and starting a vehicle. The album concludes with the sound of a car door closing followed by an individual knocking on a home's door. After The Optimist is let in, a significant amount of time lapses before the sound of a baby and adult voice connect with one another in the way that's unmistakably characteristic of familial bond. There's an ocean of ambiguity in the possible meaning at hand, yet there is indeed an overriding sense of optimism concluding the album, true to its name.

DJI PHANTOM 4 ADVANCED

RADIOCOMMANDE VERSION SANS ÉCRAN
La radiocommande du Phantom 4 Advanced contient la technologie de transmission vidéo HD Lightbridge, qui agit sur une distance de 7 km (4,3 mi). L'application DJI GO 4 intégrée permet de diffuser, éditer et partager vos vidéos aériennes et vos photos instantanément.
*Sans obstacle ni interférence, conforme à la norme FC

 PRES

Capteur 1 pouce 20 MP, Temps de vol 30 min, Évitement d’obstacles frontal, Fonctions intelligentes et bien plus. Technologie d'imagerie aérienne avancée.

La caméra est équipée d'un capteur de 1 pouce de 20 mégapixels capable de prendre des vidéos 4K / 60fps et des photos en mode rafale à 14 ips. Le système FlightAutonomy inclut 5 capteurs optiques pour détecter les obstacles dans 2 directions et éviter ceux qui sont à l'avant. Le choix d'un alliage de titane et de magnésium augmente la rigidité du châssis et réduit le poids, rendant le Phantom 4 Advanced plus léger que le Phantom 4.

CAMÉRA AVEC CAPTEUR 1 POUCE 20MP
La caméra embarquée est équipée d'un capteur CMOS 1 pouce 20 mégapixels. L'objectif sur-mesure composé de huit éléments, est arrangé en sept groupes.L'obturateur mécanique élimine la distorsion d'obturateur roulant qui peut survenir lors de la prise d'images de sujets en mouvement rapide ou en vol à grande vitesse. En effet, il est comparable aux nombreuses caméras traditionnelles au sol. Le traitement vidéo plus puissant est compatible avec les vidéos 4K H.264 à 60 ips ou H.265 à 30 ips, les deux formats offrant un débit binaire de 100 Mb/s. Les performances du capteur et des processeurs assurent une plage dynamique élevée et un niveau de détail adapté pour une post-production poussée.

L'objectif sur-mesure composé de huit éléments, est arrangé en sept groupes. La caméra est aussi puissante que la plupart des caméras DSLR traditionnelles.

La taille du capteur est plus importante pour la qualité de l'image que le nombre de pixels, car un plus grand capteur contient plus d'informations dans chaque pixel.Cela améliore la plage dynamique, le rapport signal sur bruit et les performances de faible luminosité. Le capteur CMOS d'un pouce et 20 mégapixels du Phantom 4 Advanced est presque quatre fois plus grand que le capteur 1 / 2,3 pouce du Phantom 4. Il utilise des pixels plus grands et a un ISO maximum de 12800 ainsi qu'un contraste augmenté.La qualité est suffisante pour utiliser les images immédiatement, mais capture aussi suffisamment de détails pour la post-production.

VIDÉO 4K PROFESSIONNELLE
Un système de traitement vidéo amélioré permet de capturer la vidéo dans les standards optimisés DCI du cinéma et de la production : 4K / 60 (4096 x 2160 / 60 ips)à un débit de 100 Mb/s. Vous obtiendrez des plans au ralenti en haute résolution. Le Phantom 4 Advanced prend également en charge le codec vidéo H.265 (résolutionmaximale 4096X2160 / 30 ips). Pour un débit binaire donné, le format de compression H.265 double la quantité de traitement d'image par rapport au H.264 et améliorenettement la qualité d'image. Enregistrer avec une plage dynamique élevée du mode D-log permet de tirer au mieux partie de ces données pour étalonner les couleurs.

OBJECTIF HAUTE RÉSOLUTION
La résolution et le contraste d'un objectif sont essentiels à la qualité de l'image, car seul un objectif de qualité peut capturer des photos nettes et vives en haute résolution.La toute nouvelle caméra du Phantom 4 Advanced dispose d'un objectif grand angle F2.8, pensé pour la photographie aérienne, avec une distance focale de 24 mm. Il comporte huit éléments, dont 2 asphériques, disposés en sept groupes qui s'insèrent dans un cadre plus petit et plus compact. Les images créées présentent une faible distorsion etune faible dispersion, cela garantit aux photos et aux vidéos un rendu net et vif. Les résultats MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) ont été rendus publics afin d'avoir une meilleure compréhension de la performance de la lentille.

CAPTURER CHAQUE INSTANT
L'imagerie aérienne ne sert pas uniquement à capturer des paysages mais aussi à apporter de nouvelles perspectives lorsqu'il s'agit de filmer des scènes d'action ou des courses, par exemple. Capturer des objets se déplaçant à grande vitesse a toujours été un défi pour les caméras volantes à obturateur électronique. Le Phantom 4 Advanced utilise un obturateur mécanique et un objectif à grande ouverture. L'obturateur mécanique d'une vitesse maximale de 1 / 2000s élimine la distorsion d'obturateur roulant qui peut survenir lors de la prise d'images de sujets en mouvement rapide ou en vol à grande vitesse. L'obturateur électronique a également été amélioré avec une vitesse d'obturation maximale de 1/8000 secondes, et un nouveau mode Rafale capable de saisir des clichés à 14 ips et 20 mégapixels pour ne jamais rater l'instant parfait.

5 CAPTEURS OPTIQUES
Composé de 5 capteurs optiques, des positionnements satellites GPS et GLONASS, de capteurs à ultrasons et d'un système de redondance, le système FlightAutonomy donne la capacité au Phantom 4 Advanced de voler en stationnaire avec précision, même dans des endroits sans signal GPS, et de voler dans des environnements complexes. Les deux capteurs optiques avant voient jusqu'à 30 m au devant de l'appareil. Celui-ci peut freiner automatiquement, voler en stationnaire face à des obstacles ou en faire le tour, lorsqu'ils sont dans un rayon de 15 m.

MODES DE VOLS INTELLIGENTS

DESSIN: est une toute nouvelle technologie pour le contrôle des points de repère. Il suffit de tracer un itinéraire à l'écran et le Phantom 4 Advanced se déplacera dans cette direction tout en gardant son altitude verrouillée. Cela permet au pilote de se concentrer sur le contrôle de la caméra et autorise des plans plus complexes. Il existe deux modes Dessin qui peuvent être utilisés dans différents scénarios.Avancer : L'appareil suit la trajectoire à une vitesse régulière avec la caméra orientée dans la direction du vol. Libre (Free) : L'appareil ne se déplace le long de l'itinéraire que lorsqu'il en reçoit l'ordre. Dans ce mode, la caméra peut être orientée dans n'importe quelle direction pendant un vol.
PRES
ACTIVETRACK: Les objets en déplacement rapide peuvent être très difficiles à suivre, mais les algorithmes avancés de reconnaissance d'image utilisés par le Phantom 4 Advanced lui permettent de reconnaître et de suivre l'objet tout en le gardant dans le cadre. Ce nouvel algorithme reconnaît également plus de sujets, les personnes, les véhicules ou encore les animaux, et ajuste sa dynamique de vol pour réaliser des séquences uniformes.Les pilotes peuvent choisir entre :Tracer – Suit le sujet de derrière ou de devant, évitant les obstacles automatiquement.Profil – Vole à côté d'un sujet depuis différents angles pour obtenir des images du sujet de profil.Projecteur – La caméra est fixée sur le sujet pendant que l'appareil vole quasiment n’importe où.
PRES
TAPFLY: Volez dans n'importe quelle direction visible à l'écran d'un simple appui sur l'écran. Touchez n'importe où sur l'écran pour ajuster doucement la direction du vol tout en évitant automatiquement les obstacles*. Appuyez à nouveau sur l'écran ou utilisez les joysticks pour changer de direction. Une nouvelle fonction route AR (Réalité augmentée) montre la trajectoire de vol de l'appareil en temps réel à mesure que son itinéraire est ajusté. Comme il peut être difficile de contrôler simultanément l'altitude, le cap, la vitesse et l'inclinaison de la caméra à l'aide des joysticks, TapFly Libre permet à un pilote de définir la direction du vol, lui laissant plus de marge pour tourner le Phantom 4 Advanced ou incliner la nacelle comme il faut, sans changer la direction de vol. Au total, il existe maintenant deux modes TapFly :TapFly Avancer – Appuyez pour voler dans la direction sélectionnée. TapFly Libre – Verrouille la direction vers l'avant du Phantom sans verrouiller l'orientation de la caméra, ce qui lui permet de pivoter en volant.*L'évitement d’obstacles n'est pas disponible avec TapFly Libre.
PRES
RETURN TO HOME: Avec le mode Return to Home, le Phantom 4 Advanced peut automatiquement choisir la meilleure trajectoire de retour au point de départ en fonction des conditions environnantes. Il enregistre son parcours tout au long du vol, lui permettant de revenir en suivant la même route et en évitant les obstacles en cas de déconnexion avec la radiocommande. Sur la base de son altitude au moment de la déconnexion, le Phantom 4 Advanced est également en mesure d'ajuster sa trajectoire de vol pour éviter les obstacles qu'il a vu pendant son vol. Au décollage, le Phantom 4 Advanced enregistre la scène en-dessous et compare son enregistrement avec ce qu'il voit à son retour, pour un atterrissage plus précis. Il peut également détecter le relief et constater si l'endroit est approprié pour l'atterrissage. Si des obstacles sont découverts, ou s'il y a de l'eau au sol, il alerte le pilote et vole en stationnaire à une hauteur appropriée, afin d'aider l'appareil à atterrir de façon plus sûre.
PRES
MODE GESTES: En utilisant le mode Gestes, les selfies peuvent être réalisés facilement en utilisant quelques gestes sans radiocommande. La technologie avancée de vision par ordinateur permet au Phantom 4 Advanced de recevoir des instructions par l'intermédiaire de gestes. Le sujet soulève simplement les bras en face de la caméra et l'appareil, reconnaissant ce mouvement, se verrouille alors sur le sujet et le place au centre du cadre. Lorsqu'il est prêt pour une photo, le sujet avertit l'appareil en tendant les bras. Un compte à rebours de trois secondes commence, le temps de prendre la pose, permettant de saisir des instants sans radiocommande.
PRES

PERFORMANCES DE VOL

MODES DE VOL: Selon les conditions, les caractéristiques de vol diffèrent, et le Phantom 4 Advanced offre trois modes de vol : P, A et S. En mode Position, TapFly, ActiveTrack, la détection d'obstacle et les fonctions de positionnement sont disponibles. Le mode Sport ajoute une agilité et une vitesse supplémentaires, atteignant 72 km/h (45 mph). Le mode Atti désactive la stabilisation du satellite et maintient l'altitude du Phantom 4 Advanced. Il est idéal pour les pilotes expérimentés qui cherchent à capturer des images plus lisses. Le mode Trépied (Tripod), qui limite la vitesse à 7 km/h (4 mph), offre un contrôle de précision pour le cadrage minutieux et le vol en intérieur.

IMU REDONDANCE DES CAPTEURS: Le Phantom 4 Advanced comprend deux compas et deux IMU, pour une plus grande fiabilité. Compas et IMU sont des capteurs importants pour assurer un vol stable et le Phantom 4 Advanced compare en permanence les données qu'il reçoit des deux paires. Ces données sont traitées à l'aide d'algorithmes avancés pour vérifier leur exactitude et toute donnée inexacte est simplement rejetée sans affecter l'appareil, et en gardant le vol stable et fiable.

BATTERIES INTELLIGENTES: L'imagerie aérienne professionnelle est plus adaptée aux temps de vol plus longs. Le Phantom 4 Advanced a un temps de vol maximum de 30 minutes, il octroie plus de temps dans les airs pour saisir le cliché parfait. L'application DJI GO 4 indique l'autonomie de la batterie et calcule le temps de vol restant en fonction de la distance parcourue et plus encore. Il émet des alertes lorsqu'il atteint un niveau minimum de puissance pour un voyage sûr jusqu'au point de départ. Un système avancé de gestion de la batterie est également présent pour éviter les surcharges et le drainage excessif. Lorsqu'il est stocké à plus long terme, les batteries se déchargent pour maintenir un état correct.

DJI GO 4: Grâce à l'application DJI GO 4, un grand nombre de modes de vol intelligents sont disponibles. Elle fournit également un contrôle total et manuel de la caméra, comme l'ISO, l'ouverture, la vitesse d'obturation, les formats d'image, et bien plus. Tout changement dans DJI GO 4 apparaît presque instantanément à l'écran. Les données de vol vitales et l'état de la transmission vidéo sont faciles à vérifier dans l'application, améliorant ainsi l'efficacité et le confort d'utilisation.

The Italians never thought it would happen. They, led by the French, were marching into a huge new market, China. In that moment, they turned their gaze from America, seeing a new, emerging market filled with hundreds of millions of potential customers for their wines. Every farmer’s daughter was going to Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Taipei, Chengdu and Hong Kong with their Barolo, Brunello, their Prosecco and their Moscato. All along, China was developing cheap solar panels, racing to find a way to fulfill their own country’s need for cheap, clean, sustainable energy. And with that came the temptation to import those solar panels to their trading partners in Europe. But trading with China in the solar sector could cost thousands of jobs in Europe, where the solar energy industry had a foothold and was growing at a rapid pace. The EU threatened a steep tariff on solar panels imported from China. And China threatened to retaliate on wine with a tariff of up to 47%. A trade war loomed. And while this threat was greater to France, and even Spain, Italy also felt the slap from the big hand of China.


Could it happen today, between America and Europe, a similar threat? According to a conversation I had this past week with a prestigious family producer from Italy, yes it can. European leaders are suspicious of American leadership. There is a fog of volatility that has rolled in, the likes of which hasn’t been felt since the 1970’s. But the 1970’s didn’t have the global thread of communication of commerce the interconnectedness that we all have today. The interdependence that some leaders cast a blind eye to, but which nonetheless exists. So yes, the Italians are nervous.

From the look of things in 2017, so far, business is good. Things are humming right along. Italian wine still seems to have a good momentum coming off a relatively robust year, 2016. I say this with the knowledge of data that I am privy to, commercial data that even surprised me. As it continues to do.

“We are a satellite of America,” my Italian colleague said, over a globally inspired lunch of barbecued chicken and spinach salad, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and prickly pear kombucha. It took me off guard to hear those words said. I identify as an American with Italian roots, and I love the country that my grandfathers and grandmothers immigrated to over 100 years ago. I see the limitless horizon of opportunity, as many of us immigrants and children of immigrants must see and feel when they look to America and make the often perilous trek to the land of the free. “You must understand that to us, America is a beacon of freedom for the world.” I’m sitting across a member of a venerated Italian wine family, one of the first families of Italian wine. And I’m truly astonished to hear this. And again, she says, “We are a satellite of America.”

In a sense I understand this too well. I spend all of my working time around Italian wine, around Italian restaurants and often first, second and third generation Italian immigrants. I’m steeped in the tea of Italianitá. It was then that I felt a deep commitment, once again, tugging at my heartstrings, a little voice inside, from ages past and days not yet born saying “Help them get over to your side, help them to get a place at the table.” No kidding, this is how I think and feel about it. It’s not about selling more wine; it’s not about being in the cool kid’s club. It’s about finding ways, often extremely difficult, given the myriad of laws and regulations in the alcohol beverage industry among the 50 states, to help my Italian cousins in this land of opportunity.

So to imagine that America might be going into a potential trade war with Europe - no matter how capriciously it might be constructed by the Steve Bannon’s of the world – it was truly an alarming thought for the future of Italian wine in America.

Yes, things are so much better than it was 25, 35, 50 years ago in the world of Italian wine in America. Now we have the luxury of groaning when we see one too many Erbaluce’s on hipster wine lists. But I see a new battle looming on the horizon, one which might be more than just one of have a greater selection. You think it couldn’t happen here? How many jaw dropping events must one witness before one realizes they are not on solid ground but on the deck of the Titanic?

Vigilance, my Italian colleagues. We are in a social and economic climate that is heating up faster than our contentiously debated global climate shift.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama announced in May 2013 that no lethal strike against a terrorist would be authorized without “near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured.”

But amid unconfirmed reports of civilian casualties, the White House said this week that U.S. bombing in Iraq and Syria is not being held to the near-certainty standard. And the Pentagon, hamstrung by limitations in intelligence gathering, has been unable to determine in many cases whether the casualty reports are true.

“We do take extreme caution and care in the conduct of these missions,” Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon’s press secretary, said. “But there’s risk in any military operation. There’s a special kind of risk when you do air operations.”

When Obama outlined his strategy to fight the Islamic State group earlier this month, he cited as parallels the limited U.S. counterterrorism campaigns in Yemen and Somalia, where American drone missile strikes have targeted al-Qaida-linked militants. Aides said he was also thinking of Pakistan but didn’t mention those strikes because drone killings there are entirely the work of an officially unacknowledged CIA operation.

But when it comes to civilian casualties, it has become clear that the targeted killing model that Obama has expanded and honed throughout his presidency does not apply to the more intensive military operation against the Islamic State and the Khorasan Group in Iraq and Syria.

According to the White House, the reason the near-certainty standard is not applicable turns on a fine point of international law — the theory that the U.S. is not involved in “active hostilities” in Yemen and Somalia, but is in Syria and Iraq. Such distinctions are controversial, given the frequency with which American bombs and bullets have flown in both countries.

A more practical reason is that the self-imposed rules on drone strikes against al-Qaida are simply too restrictive for a conventional military air campaign against the Islamic State group, which the U.S. says is both a terrorist group and an occupying army, and has ordered the Pentagon to destroy.

“It is much different in scope and complexity” than Yemen and Somalia, said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., an intelligence committee member. “I think it will be very hard to apply the very restrictive rules they put in place for other theaters.”

The drone attacks in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan are carried out either by the CIA or, at times in Yemen and Somalia, the military’s Joint Special Operations Command. They employ Hellfire missiles, relatively small munitions designed to destroy people and vehicles.

In Iraq and Syria, the Air Force and Navy are using cruise missiles and conventional guided bombs to destroy buildings and other infrastructure that Hellfires can’t bring down. Allies, including Britain, France and Arab countries, are also using conventional bombs.

While most of the air strikes have been directed at the Islamic State group, the U.S. also used cruise missiles to attack the Syria headquarters of the Khorasan Group, an al-Qaida cell said to be plotting attacks on the West. Syrian opposition figures have said that one of those missiles went astray Sept. 23 and killed women and children in the village of Kafr Daryan near Aleppo.


All told, human rights groups have said that as many as two dozen civilians have been killed in U.S. and allied bombings in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. military says it hasn’t confirmed any civilian death but hasn’t ruled it out in every case, either.

White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said the near-certainty standard was intended to apply “only when we take direct action outside areas of active hostilities.”

Military officials say they are taking great care to avoid civilian casualties in Iraq and Syria, consistent with international law. But international law does not require a near certainty that civilians won’t be harmed in military strikes. U.S. officials say harm to noncombatants is inevitable in a large bombing campaign —especially when the enemy is embedded in civilian areas.

Obama himself made that point in his 2013 speech, in the context of explaining why targeted drone campaigns are preferable to conventional war when it comes to counter terrorism.

“Conventional airpower or missiles are far less precise than drones and are likely to cause more civilian casualties and more local outrage,” the president said.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said this week that the U.S is relying mainly on intelligence-gathering technology such as satellites, drones and overhead surveillance flights to determine whether there have been civilian casualties.

As a result, “It’s much harder for us to be able to know for sure what it is we’re hitting, what it is we’re killing and what is collateral damage,” said Tom Lynch, a retired colonel and former adviser to the Joint Chiefs of Staff who is now a fellow at the National Defense University.

Warren acknowledged that the Pentagon could not say for sure that every person killed in the bombing of Iraq and Syria has been a combatant.

After the near-certainty standard was imposed on drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, the frequency of strikes dropped precipitously, and the use of so-called signature strikes — attacks aimed at large groups of armed men who fit the profile of militants but whose names were not all known to the CIA — was curtailed.

The post Obama administration eases policy on preventing civilian casualties in Iraq, Syria appeared first on PBS NewsHour.

          Nugget RV Park 9/10 - St. Regis, Montana   
This is a beautiful park in a beautiful area. The office staff were friendly and we were escorted to our site. All interior roads and sites are gravel and not very level, and only a handful of RV sites have grassy areas. The park is built on a hilltop with many terraces, twists and turns above a meadow area. It's a nice, clean park and we've stayed here on more than one occasion. Bring your own wifi and satellite TV unless you plan to golf, fish or hike while you're here. The store is limited but has ice and huckleberry jam! Many activities for kids, and plenty of walking space for dogs. This could be a destination RV park for many but request a spacious site with grass and shade. Our space wasn't long enough and we had to park our pickup across the front of our site, as did our neighbor.

          Ka Auditron Ba - The Final Conflict   

Back in October of last year I was in New York and had the pleasure of meeting King Koncepts at his record store, Good Records. We chatted about music and he mentioned that Karma was working on releasing some old late 90's Kemetic Suns music. Fast forward to last week and I received an email from Karma introducing himself and letting me know about the music he posted on his Tumbler. Karma picks up where Koncepts left off when he posted The Bombshelter album back in 2009. I'm not going to try and summarize any of this of, instead I urge you to take some time and read through the detailed posts from Karma and listen to the unreleased Ka Auditron Ba (Karmachi & Hypnotic) album.

I'd like to thank Karma for reaching out to me and allowing me to post this on my site. The insight he and Koncepts provide is rarely seen in underground hip hop and is greatly appreciated.

 When To Walk Away Pt. 1

Preview to The Long Goodbye

***This blog was originally  written by Koncepts and featured as documentary comment on Cocaine Blunts appearing in 2009. Since then the trolls have made it less inspiring for the homie Noz to keep the blog up so I thought I would recreate it here for the sake of background***
 “Fundamentals consisted of me – Koncepts – and Karma. We met each other at Berkeley High, 1992. All I remember was being introduced to this dude who was into rap, and had a little bit of game to him - he knew all the different cats around school, kept good weed, knew how to talk to girls. Quickly we started hanging out, going to parties. We formed The Fundamentals in early ‘93, long before the crew Kemetic Suns came about. At that time, the crew we made was called “Ascension”: in addition to us, we brought in a group called Hijinx (Peekaboo and Embassy), rappers Malignant and Level Z, and Anthony/Ayentee. Before I got with Karma, I was in an awful band that played funk-rock-jazz-rap-fusion a la Alphabet Soup or the Mo'Fessionals – interesting sidenote, playwright Itamar Moses played keyboards in that group. But I wanted to do something that was more straight up Hip-Hop. I was DJing already and I played the guitar. I fell off with the guitar lessons but started making primitive beats. Hanging out at Anthony’s house in north-west Berkeley I started to get hip to funk and latin and freakier jazz music all courtesy of his father’s record collection. 


We all hung out and got busy together, either at Anthony’s house or at my house. Anthony’s house was like a constant spot – there would be any number of kids there, from the graf crew DOA down to West Side Berkeley dudes, friends of his dad, relatives. I was granted use of a narrow boiler room underneath my mom’s house – the “Bomb Shelter” – to record in, and all of the material featured was made there. The beats here were made either on an Akai S-01 (a cheap version of the 950) and a Roland R8 Human Rhythm Composer, or the Ensoniq ASR-10, which I stuck with. Kids would come through, I would throw together a beat or have one I had already worked up, and they would record. Anthony, who made beats as well, occasionally helped out engineering things. I’d do arrangements, hooks, whatever. I wanted people to write songs, not just lay down rhymes, so I tried to focus their talents and that’s how a lot of this stuff came to be. A lot of guys didn’t have any idea how to write songs – like, verse/hook/bridge, or whatever. Some dudes just wanted to spit for like 6 minutes. Off the head. It was a mess.


Most of us were from Berkeley or Oakland. Karma spent some time up in Sacramento early on. Malignant had one foot out in Richmond I think. Around the beginning of 1994 I moved to the Mission neighborhood in San Francisco to go live with my father, but continued attending Berkeley High and hanging out with the crew every day. It was a regular thing to go from school to my mom’s basement where the makeshift studio was, record until 7 or 8, ride the bus back into San Francisco and wash up somewhere around 10 at my dad’s apartment. Peek lived out by Eclipse, in the Union City area, and they were friends, so that’s how we got down with the Mixed Practice crew. Eclipse tells me now that he got real tight when Peek played him some of my stuff, like “who is this other young dude out here with beats??” Karma’s brother Wayne knew Corey/BFAP from the Mystik Journeymen, so we got down with them around ’94 or so, but I think they probably saw us as like, young’uns in the game. We met Kirby around then as well, up at UC Berkeley at KALX – Karma had gone up there with BFAP from the Journeymen. While BFAP was kind of cool on the kid, it was obvious he had incredible talent. Kirby, originally from East Oakland, had spent many years in Stockton prior to coming to Berkeley… had kind of a checkered past, but it turned out he and Karma knew some folks in common from up that way. We would hang out and freestyle in his dorm room but we hadn’t really clicked up in a formal way yet, like we would later.

image

Even though our style was more on the “backpack”/”houser” thing, a lot of the cats in the crew had street ties, we just didn’t really put it out there like that. It was more a thing you wanted to get away from, if you had ever been close enough to see it. The one exception was The Mental Patients – featured here on “Mental Anxieties” – who were some real street cats from South Berkeley, North Oakland, and East Oakland. But they’d come through, we’d smoke, lay down some music, no drama ever. They weren’t really a part of the crew per se but they showed love, would share smoke or even muscle if it was needed (which, on a couple of occasions, it was). Good dudes. Any time there was beef you had an assemblage of dudes from West Side and South Side Berkeley as well as North Oakland and parts of the east as well. We rolled deep.

image

The Ascension crew only lasted but so long, though, and at a certain point, friendly competition turned into beef. Dudes started talking behind each others’ backs, trying to create little allegiances and whatever… just childish stuff but you know we were, at the time, anywhere from 14-18 years old. Embassy and Karma, long rivals in the cipher, came to blows and everyone went their separate ways. I spent several months recording my own material, thinking I’d record my own demo/album, maybe sell it like the Journeymen and Mixed Practice and the other guys I was meeting around the scene at that time. That stuff never got released anywhere, with only one track turning up on 30 Days; much of it is featured here.

image
In the summer of 1995, Karma and I were both working in San Francisco. He was interning at Polygram - Polygram had an office in San Francisco! We patched up and started working on what would become 30 Days & A Plane Ticket, our first “real” tape – the title owing to the fact that I was moving to New York City 30 days from when we started. Karma’s style, originally an old school, laid back flow, and at one point a bone of contention amongst the more east coast-influenced crew, had developed into a this tripped out, cerebral scattershot of politics, hood slang, conspiracy theories, and 5% math. A cat he rolled with called Bay-Bay came up with the name Kemetic Suns. At that time, though, it was basically just a loose affiliation of folks we rolled with, some of whom didn’t make music at all. It was just a crew in the loosest sense. Kirby was down at that point, but I don’t recall meeting Hypnotic (another crew member) until 1996 or so, beyond the point at which this comp comes to an end.
image 
Honestly I don’t know what people will think of this stuff. I’m opening myself up which is always a risk. I think we had some talent. We never made a huge mark, despite being really prolific – due mostly to my ability to record. I had the good fortune to hold onto most of my old sessions. I’m sure there’s a ton of amazing stuff out there that has disappeared… I’ve certainly been met with that response as I’ve sought out material by other groups of the time. We wore our influences on our sleeves – but as kids, that’s just part of developing your own style. Back then, it wasn’t about features, or placements, or even tape sales really – just a bunch of cats doing music. That’s what the underground tape thing was really about. I can think of no better way to illustrate that.”

When To Walk Away Pt. 2

Preview to The Long Goodbye 

For a very long time my identity and self perspective was shaped by being a member of a family that made music. Had our parents been born in the Carribean in the 60′s and repatriated to the UK, we probably would have been Cymande. Had it been London in the late 40′s we might have been Pink Floyd. I have heard arguments that place us around the world and at different movements. As it shaped out, we were birthed into the 70′s and grew up in the 80′s in the east bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. In particular, we all cut our teeth in the “small island in the sea of night” known as Berkeley. In 1995 we started our collective and independent label we called Kemetic Suns Massive.

image
There was a time to that time in particular that I would be hard pressed to try to recreate with words. As much as I pride myself on my ability to write into existence, I don’t think I could accurately give the feeling or emotional connection we had to what we were doing. There was different a zeitgeist of sorts as it was the mid-1990s and hip hop was becoming a billion dollar way of telling young people what to do. Perhaps it was the influence of Apple vs Wintel happening in our backyard of Silicon Valley. Maybe there was a factor around welfare reform, new banking models and a sense that another gold rush had come to San Francisco. It could be the influence of self determined cultural giants such as MC Hammer, Too Short, E-40 and Mac Dre who were uncompromising in their independence and standards.
I don’t have the bandwidth or desire to try to explain what brought us to the music or together. Many of these thoughts have laid hidden from me for decades by my own doing. I think my brother does a much better job of describing us here:

Bomb Shelter
 
Then there was also the concept of newly emerging technologies such as samplers, sequencers and non-lineal audio recording. That and the fact that as teenager I stumbled into being an active member of something that would later become called the Internet as well as progenitor of social media. Do not take my word for anything. There are far better curators involved:

It's Cheaper Than A CD

In terms of a business model we were decidedly clear that we would do everything in house. EVERY THING. Tapes, cds, vinyl, t-shirts. Production, engineering, management, promotion. Our greatest asset was each other. I treated the collective like my martial arts gym (which I mistakenly left in pursuit of a full time music career) in that training each other on every aspect made us well rounded, disciplined and allowed us to bring in new skills. The majority of the good work is based on our willingness to skip past barriers in terms of booking, promotion and retail:



From 1995 to 1998 we made 15 different projects ranging from EP to LPs to even putting out one of the first audio books for spoken word and poetry. I can’t speak for anyone else but I actually thought we were going to change the world. Given that our model was more of a social enterprise than a record label or entertainment company. Many of our members were previously homeless, from foster homes and/or faced with tons of barriers toward economic independence. My father, who was and will always be the bare minimum of excellence I strive for, ran a non profit that provided legal services to the poor who couldn’t afford to fight unlawful evictions, custody battles and discrimination. Without explicitly knowing we were into job training, Koncepts and I were adamant that these roles at House Kemetic Suns become employment. 
In 1997, Kirby got an opportunity to study abroad in DC at Howard. He would ride the train to Harlem and record with Koncepts, which later became Konceptual Dominance.


During that time, myself, Hypnotic and Per Aa were doing shows all over northern and central California. Literally from as far as Humbolt to San Luis Obisbo. Initially I only had the Fundamentals material I could perform and Hypnotic had his guest appearances as as he worked on his album. When all of the Suns met up in winter 1997, Koncepts played us Flawless Execution.


As soon as I heard it I knew what it was: Konceptual Dominance. In a time when we could hear everyone else punching in every bar, these two were going for 16 bars with flurries full of flow, punchline, presence and brilliant topics. I knew this was going to be a game changer. To be fair all we did was game changers, whether or not it was quality. Innovation and newness led the day. In response, Hypnotic pulled out the dusty tape of 8-track mix downs of the routines he and I were doing when we ran out of material on stage. I had slices of dub tracks and science fiction movie soundtracks as the thumbnails of beats we were rapping over. The crew loved it and named us Ka Auditron Ba. We were given the mandate to finish our project to release it after Konceptual Dominance and set up for the Kemetic Suns album. Ka Auditron Ba worked for the next year to finish our project called The Final Conflict. 3 label deals, 4 tours, 21 tracks and it was never released as promised. Somewhere in there I just walked away. 

For the few souls who are clever enough to see me on the street and figure out who I am, the question is always the same:

1) Why was the Auditrons never released?

2) What happened to the Kemetic Suns?

As 2017 is here and I do away with old things, avoiding answering these questions is one of those things I will let go. The answers in part III

“I’m an A-U-D-I-O”


There was a friendly competition we all adhered to when we started. Ultimately it was about the four of us: me, Koncepts, Kirby and Hypnotic being able to freestyle against each other for hours. I mean HOURS. At that time we thought we were okay, retrospect made me realize we were pretty high level. Much of the energy of that competition played out in the dynamics we had with one another outside of the music. Kirby was the master of partnership, I understood project management, Koncepts was our in house technical and Hypnotic did our sales. We were a much larger collective once, at one time being 15 people deep if you counted the affiliates in New York and Texas as well as the younger cats we were mentoring. There is also an argument in there about how influential and selfless cats like Bas1, Eclipse427 (Walt Liquor), Peekaboo and Infamous were so they could be Kemetic Suns. Plus there is a whole other tangent on how strong our ties were to MURS.
Quite accidently, Kirby and Koncepts together were very good as ambassadors. They travelled a lot, they showed up to events and they were able to get our sound into the heads of real decision makers who made sure our records ended up on mix shows, college radio and features. This is part of the reason Konceptual Dominance made so much sense. On the opposite tip, Hypnotic and I were doing shows and selling merchandise direct to customers (fans). I had a pretty high ethical standard which I realize now was a serious handicap for our business in terms of being in the music industry. Other groups could trash the stage, steal from the bar, go over their time or intimidate the promoter into moving them up on the lineup. I never wanted to get too involved in that type of grimy dealings because it was dumb logic to me – if we were going to go that route, forget the music and let’s go back to the streets.

That was another issue we were confronting. Many of the people rapping at the time all came from middle class backgrounds and had a parachute lined up for them afterwards. Koncepts and I tried to address that on Stop The World (the song itself). Where as many crews were diverse economically and ethnically, we were diverse economically but most of our members were two steps from the streets. Meaning we had convinced them to let go of their old hustles in lieu of legitimate enterprises that would be promoted by House Kemetic Suns. It was always a struggle. We didn’t always win. As the founder of the collective, I had the tendency to be the loudest voice in the room even if I actually wanted a democracy. In fact I remember always talking about being the bigger person and breaking up some many beefs. Then one night in winter of 1996, I confronted a mask bound rapper about some personal violations he made in my life. In his drunken indignation, he replied he was not responsible for his actions and he might kill me. I lost it and told him to put up his hands. He had 12 tiny people holding him back, the Suns just watched to make sure nobody jumped me from behind. We never got into it but he knew that night like I know this day that if it went down he was going to end up in the ER. The problem was we had crossed a bridge; our music was never going to be bohemian again and I had lost the credibility to tell my crew to “walk away”. In fact, we turned the ship and headed directly into the storm.

There are some background elements to understand before going in. If Konceptual Dominance was the equivalent of two tenured professors doing panel discussion on human behavior through hip hop, Ka Auditron Ba was the essence of two battle rappers getting their own satellite and broadcasting a 24 hour signal based on the lifestyle trying to prevent a cataclysm. We pulled from everything important to us at the time. Both Hypnotic and I were avid Marvel fans. We owned tons of comics. I read a lot of science fiction and watched a lot of movies. Hypnotic was really into documentaries. At the time I was able to study under Mr. Obenga which deeply changed my life and I was able to see firsthand the aspirations of the progenitors of the Nile Valley culture. Meanwhile Hypnotic’s mother was a reggae journalist and therefore gave him access to elders. One in particular who really influenced us was Scientist. Aside from demystifying much of the Rastafarian thought process beyond the generics and tropes, Scientist gave us the template.

 image

Thus began the goal of creating an identity: we would outperform. The analogy of individuals who take and never gave back became “vampires”. We knew because we didn’t play the politics game we were hard pressed to get headline bookings in the Bay Area because of the co-opting of the scene happening. Simply put, I was going to kiss anyone’s ass, the big names were haters and Hypnotic was doing things behind the scene that made these dudes shook. If we couldn’t get the midnight spot or the top name of the flyer, we wanted the 1130pm slot and we wanted to be second on the flyer. It was Scientist who told us to open with The Voodoo Curse that we transformed into the chant to take over the crowd: “We are……the Kemetic Suns….” It didn’t matter WHO was the headliner. Our goal was to create and perform music that stole the show. It happened time after time after time. We would watch crews argue with the promoter: “don’t put Kemetic Suns on before us….they tire out the crowd”. The promoter would come to us and Hypnotic would say “don’t worry we’re just the Auditrons”.

There is most of the recordings on Soundcloud. I am not sure if everything is awesome. I know I was rapping in the top 10 list at the time but I am not sure if everything we did was incredible. There are some tracks that really move me and Koncepts. I pinged him to get his take on our favorites from the project:


Karma: Resonance was a tribute to Scientist but all scientists in general. We knew there was some connection between innovation and audio engineering happening from the Jamaican sound clashes to NYC hip hop to what we were actually doing with the drum machine and ASR vocal effects when we performed. This is a perfect example of the routines we would do. Back and forths that would whip the crowd into a frenzy as an opener. Also the djs loved it because it was heavy with break beats and juggling. FYI, this is Neal Degrasse Tyson narrating before you all knew how great he was. I pulled it from a vhs compilation my father got me because of our shared loved of astronomy.

Koncepts: this beat don’t make no fucking sense. I didn’t make it. but it always killed at shows. watching people try to catch the beat count was comedy. this shit is in like 11/8 or something. Ka and Ba had that rapid-fire flow where they could make it work and trade off like they were freestyling. It’s pretty incredible, actually.


Karma: Black Elevation Station was supposed to be the crunk remix to All Terrain for Internal Symmetry. My father was from the south and I loved southern hip hop. Not just the obvious stuff like Dungeon Family, Geto Boys and UGK. I listened to obscure material most didn’t know about. When I heard this beat I said its smobb music but it’s not southern. At that time, the stuff I was doing with the internet was getting some nods. I was brought to speak at Stanford to a couple of student groups. The idea of creating one’s own content distribution was intoxicating but we were talking to a couple investors who were interested in buying a satellite and setting up a station in San Francisco. When the deal went through, like so many to come after, Hypnotic suggest we just act like it was still going and we had our station on a satellite we owned.

Koncepts: I had this track early on in the process but added to it along the way. a lot of the keys and stuff came in later. I used a few different samples but kept them all in key, I was known for melodic beats but one thing about the west coast style and the Bay underground in particular was this kind of mystical ass sound but with slapping drums. so this was like that, some psychedelic guitar and synths, but at a higher tempo and some 808 sounds. What Ka and Ba did with it was sick, exactly what I had envisioned it for, they flowed perfectly on the beat. A mix of paranoia and toughness in the lyrics. I think I added the later stuff when they were in the studio with the session players - I wasn’t really involved in that and I wanted to tune up my own stuff to keep pace.


Karma: Tapes. Koncepts and I would send each other tapes a couple times a year. He was attending NYU while I was at SFSU. Most of the beats on the tapes he would send would end up on some project: Ambershine, Internal Symmetry, Konceptual Dominance or the Auditrons. Most of the beats I would send back were rough but he would tweak some of them and they would end up on his solo stuff, my ill fated solo album, Prayze The Sun or Internal Symmetry. This beat was clearly for Hypnotic and I. He even put it on the tape. It was Koncepts at his most genius Smokey Robinson. He could hear something we couldn’t in ourselves. He made sure he was with us when we wrote to it. When he started playing it on the speakers, he prompted us with “show them how the flow never ends”. He wanted to play with some of the Nommo concepts of embracing the silence in the groove as well as the volatility in the drums. We were always sure to write what the beat wanted not what we wanted. Soon as Hypnotic mumbled “its vital that you follow our path that is spiral” a voice spoke to me with the chorus. I looked up from the pad and said “I’m an A-U-D-I-O”. At first they didn’t get it, but I wouldn’t stop. When I saw their eyes light up after the third repetition, we knew did something. This might be my favorite memory of music.

Koncepts: this is definitely the big one. coulda maybe done some numbers. had all the elements. smoothed out but conscious, a hook you can understand and repeat… the label Ka & Ba were messing with brought this into a bigger studio and I was able to add the live guitar and percussion. But they had a boy band and brought them in to do background vocals… kind of not what I had envisioned, image-wise. it worked for the sound, as far as that was concerned. The label was just trying to get on a vehicle for their boy band though. They kept trying to push them into the mix of what we were doing and I had to step away from that situation. that’s one of the things that messed with the delicate equilibrium of the project and the crew.


Karma: There was a lot of money to be made being an independent rap group if you were willing to compromise. We weren’t. Managers would tell us we were unmanageable; too head strong and not needy enough. We made far less money than we should have based on our morals and pride. The way to keep the boat afloat was to subsidize the business model with pieces of my check. At first I worked at a smoothie shop that got bought, stole all my recipes and became Jamba Juice; different story for a different time. That wasn’t going to work for me. Doing minimum wage at a mall. Also in my young fiery mind, “how does this help my people?” I got into working for a few non-profits and did harm reduction outreach – needle exchange, violence prevention and street worker advocacy. I was seeing young people being mistreated as wards of the state.

Hypnotic was doing group home work given he had been in one himself. We would trade stories about the issues we were seeing with young people and the bureaucracy. More and more it felt like young people were being experimented on rather than treated or helped. Both of us had some experience at young age in terms of “recruitment” that made us a bit more suspicious. Now with the popularity of Stranger Things, Hunger Games and Ender’s Game, it doesn’t seem so far fetched. I know.

Maybe there was also a piece of falling into the formula. Doing it every time because it worked last time. I remember be asked “whats the sci fi movie song on this album?” well before we even wrote Cryosleep. It’s possible we had become trope.

Koncepts plays the bass on this. That’s why its so rich.


When To Walk Away Pt.4

Preview to The Long Goodbye



Karma: There was this great kung fu western flick my god brother Kenny brought over called All Men Are Brothers: Blood of the Leopard which was adaptation of the Chinese classic Water Margin. It was the story of a high level government official who must choose between his position and his allegiance to a rough street monk who is very anti-corruption in the government. It represented so many relationships at that time. My god brother Wayne was really loud and boisterous, but when I was around he was always calming me down to learn discretion. When he died of cancer in 1997 it put a large hole in my heart. Somehow I ended up becoming that person that was calming folks down and was caught between the diplomacy and the ethical outrage of the people I was around. We would leave shows in San Jose, San Luis Obispo or San Antonio. It would be 3am as we drove home. Somehow at every gas station there was a group of young men about to fight. Somehow there was some kid at an IHOP looking at his pager like “I’m going to get revenge”. Somehow I always seemed to put myself in the middle and talk them down. Somehow I never got shot.

Koncepts: just a perfect song man. we were all really vibrating on the same frequency. I love the little glass clinks and crowd ambiance from the sample. and the kick drum knocks so hard. that’s that Bay Area shit man, a mellow ass sample and deep bass.


Karma: We would perform a lot in the “hip hop” room at raves. That was the culture of the 90’s. Hypnotic hated it because he didn’t feel techno. However to be quite honest, the women at raves were thousand times better looking and more stable than the women who went to hip hop. The baddest of them used to hang in the “jungle” room – a rough amalgamation of actual jungle, trip hop, drum and base as well as what would eventually be dub step. Kirby and I loved going back forth over those beats. We could rap for hours over the stuff. For me it brought me home to Jupiter, Florida. It put me in the red clay of Georgia. It gave me the woods of Mississippi. I loved obscure southern rap and especially enjoyed the bounce aspect. I also appreciated the underestimation that California and New York put upon southern rap. It paralleled the mistake many crews in the Bay ran into. They dissed us on tape, we responded by snatching the mics at their show and serving them. Then they took it outside to battle and got demolished. Then they wanted to throw hands and lost there too. This track is a narrative to that. At the time we wouldn’t have seen it that way.

Koncepts: I feel a way about this song. It’s fucking amazing - the beat, the rhymes, the hook… my god. and when we dropped this at a show? bedlam. but it has a kind of ignoble history. My partner Zvi and I had this Delia Gartrell 45, which is this brutal ballad about a woman’s son dying in the Vietnam war, and we chopped it real slow. Zvi had the idea of chopping up Skull Snaps and doing a bounce pattern with it. It was unique, no one was doing bounce drums with samples, especially not old school breakbeats. Anyway, we kinda fucked up the money because we also gave this track to Mazzi [rapper with our other group the Soul Purpose] and it was like, ok, let’s see who does what with it… Mazzi made an incredible track called “1 and 9” about being from the hood in Jersey. It was super ill. So we had this issue, who could use the beat? Nobody even cares about shit like that anymore, but back then it was a real problem. Zvi wanted to roll with Mazzi’s version, I was on the fence. Anyway, I feel like that disagreement was another one that ended up torpedoing the project. And what’s sad is that neither song ever came out - the Soul Purpose project fell apart not too long after and the album we were working on never made it out of the demo stage. Nowadays I prefer “Ashes” to “1 and 9”. But at the time I couldn’t call it.


Karma: Perhaps the most honest writing anyone was doing in (w)rap™ at that age. I was in my early twenties trying to understand what it meant to be a man while facing a divorce like end to my long term relationship. There were some rules we made up to protect our esteem. One of them was we wouldn’t date women we met in the industry because it led to hardship later. I think that put so much expectation on the women we fell in love with outside of music that when those relationships crumbled it hurt us even more. On top of which, Hypnotic and I were facing this same debacle every time: why does it seem like self-control and discipline gets punished. Simply put, we both were in faithful parties in long term relationships that ended when our romantic partners were not faithful. That combined with life in show biz, turned us bitter when we stuck to the honor code. 

Koncepts: this beat is mad mournful with that one drawn out note that descends and ascends in the chords. I used an SP1200 on a lot of the Auditron drums courtesy of my partner Zvi and you can hear the programming gets a lot better and the drums are chunkier. Ka and Ba perfectly wrote this for how the beat felt to me. Vulnerable and hurt but still standing strong. It’s a shame the project never came out because there are so many tracks that I felt were just the perfect distillation of a feeling, this was one of those. Probably my personal favorite now.


Koncepts: I love this song man. Ba really showed his heart on it. And it takes skill to rap over something like this which is kinda mellow and laid back but not like, sad or down. the loop just gets me in a zone; very based. this might have been an intro beat or slated for Per Aa Ra’s project originally. There were earlier takes that I felt like Ba nailed it a bit better. But you couldn’t save takes back then and we had that stupid belief that a) we have to deliver everything in one take and b) we can definitely do the next one better. so it goes.

Karma: I remember when this was done and I would drive around with mix downs, this was the soundtrack to getting through traffic. It became synonymous with “things are going to be all right”. I struggled for many years to explain what this meant without falling into esoteric answers or metaphysics. One thing my Dad was very good at impressing upon me was “don’t feed steak to children” meaning don’t waste your time trying to explain complexities people don’t want to learn. In of myself, I was learning how to be more efficient and not waste my time. This song really gave folks a sense of optimism.


Karma: Why a final conflict? One thing I have come to terms with and this album should evidence – I can see things before they happen. I am not going to spend a single second of time on weirdos defending it. I will just state – people were downloading music from www.kemeticsuns.comthree years before Napster. Towards the middle of 1997, something was changing in the Bay Area. I was starting to get fans who worked at something called a “tech company” who would invite me to work as a contractor. They had website that had millions behind them but they couldn’t tell you what they did all day. They wanted to pay me to tell them what was cool. More and more I saw a reliance on machines as the new free labor. The dot come boom was becoming a second gold rush and I was aware it had it limits. In 2017, the largest obstacle facing the American worker is not automation. It is the perception that automation demands a better quality of life for all. There are some very good thinkers on this subject but I would direct attention at Berkeley’s own Phillip K. Dick, Frank Herbert and William Gibson.

The point being, the matter of artificial intelligence is not an if, it’s a when. Once this consciousness evolves, it will split in its belief systems. If humans can be cruel, please believe there are machine gods that can be crueler. I am reminded of the quote by Francis de la Rochefoucauld, “Man believes he has abandoned his vices when in fact they abandoned him long ago”. Now looking at where we are with a new year, self driving cars and a new a president, I suspect we are at the placed I had hoped to avoid. Maybe there are some jewels in here for our fans in the years to come.
The album in its entirety is below:

Ultimately I believe it was this album that transitioned the Kemetic Suns. We didn’t break up. We didn’t quit. We moved on. The stresses of this album may have been too much. These songs were performed a lot and got us two label deals. Both deals had the same dynamic: this is GREAT. Then you get into the studio to re-record everything and the labels sends in their composition army to get hands on your publishing. Once the songs are done, the contract amendment comes and it requires 36 months of touring with a live band to play all the songs the label wants additions to with $30k of tour support split among 8 people. How many times do you do the same scenario before reaching insanity? How many times do you get bumped from your show time and not want to snap on everyone from the promoter to the venue? How many times do you choke a promoter for the money for your show money, plane ticket money, hotel money and per diem only to go on stage rapping about helping people before your mind fizzles? More and more. Also there was a reality that Koncepts and I came to realize at SXSW in 2001. We hated the road. Touring was living on the road. Living on the road was being a grown latch key kid stuck between parent’s homes. It was miserable. At 16 I was already thinking like a 26 year old. Imagine where my head was at 24, being asked to make drunk and high 19 year olds of suburbia happy on stage for 45 minutes night after night. Most of the guys who adored that life look like Larry Holmes now – flabby, sick, soft and slow to answer. Meanwhile Eclipse and I were making much larger checks pulling strings behind the scenes without needing to be in the spotlight.

Diagnosis

Perhaps the final moment for me was August 2004 when I discovered my mother couldn’t walk. She could barely eat much less explain the pain she was in. After seeing over twenty different doctors, it was clear my mother would need surgery and would need a full time caregiver. I made the announcement to the Kemetic Suns that I was bowing out to free up time for my mother. Mostly everyone was supportive. I disappeared as quickly as I emerged. During this time Kirby and Hypnotic did their Kirb and Chris album

In June of 2005, my father was diagnosed with stage two Alzheimer’s dementia. The doctor took his license on the spot and told us to focus on “quality of life” because they didn’t expect him to live past two years. My mother’s illness combined with my father’s diagnosis and the demons of the road pushed me over the edge. I crawled inside a bottle for a time. I was convinced that I had hurt my parents with my music. I burned my rhyme pads and decided to never write a rap again. When I emerged I had a new path and oath to keep to my father.

Over the next five years, I became a new person in learning to go from being a Kemetic Sun to being the best son I could be. I found that many of the skills I learned through the music, were transferrable to helping my father. I also learned a great deal about my willpower, drive and commitment. My father was and is my world. My reason for being. A strong, hard, magician of a man who was loved by all he came across; even his enemies had to respect him. In 1995 when I handed my father a copy of 30 Daze and A Plane Ticket I had no idea the journey I would take. When I asked him what he thought, he played the Daddy Please skit for me and asked if I was talking to him. I vehemently denied it but I was deeply hurt that he thought I was airing him out. I shouted him out at the end of the album but he didn’t seem to hear that. I don’t think he believed me. That never set well with me.

Quality Of Life

image
When my father died, I had a brand new appreciation. I couldn’t just nod. I had to act. I knew he deserved some act to offset the notion that a song had been laid against him. I began writing songs about caring for my father. When things got very bad, Koncepts and Peek started sending me beats. I don’t know why. They don’t either. We are all being polite around the fact that they were worried about me. I would drive my father around to different appointments and play the beats that I was given. Music was good for my father’s moods. During the late nights in the emergency room, I wrote science fiction in my head. This project ended up becoming The Paper Thrones. During the mornings when I was trying to pay for everything, I wrote rhymes as I drove. The combination opened my eyes to the amount of people who were just starting the journey I was on. More and more I saw signs of millions of people caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s and no one speaking for them; or to them. I knew I had to say goodbye to you fans, to my father and to any hold this disease thinks it may have over me. I will not die of Alzheimer’s. If I do, it is because I went down fighting and I hurt the hell out of it.

Sometime in the near future I will release to you this tribute called The Long Goodbye. A 21 track album that is both a tribute to my father and also my way of closure with the people I meet who tell me how much good Kemetic Suns did for their lives. This will be the solo album the fans were promised. It absolutely sounds like a Kemetic Suns album; I am told it sounds like a grown man Ambershine. I have ZERO interest in selling the album. My goal is to see how money we can raise to fight Alzheimer’s using this album. Some simple value proposition such as “If you donate $1 to this cause, you get a code to download the album”.

I hope this answered the questions. I hope this gave you what you were looking for. I hope you will join me one last time for The Long Goodbye.

          City sets up temporary skate park near Sunset    

Open letter to Coeur d'Alene's skaters (posted on city of Coeur d'Alene Facebook page):

Check out the satellite skate park location we are setting up at 1355 Best Avenue (in between Motion Auto Supply and Inland Fence, just west of Sunset Park)!

While we begin the improvements at the Memorial Field complex, including a new skate park that is intended to come online in Spring 2018, we have set up the skate ramps up north.

We're so excited to have this facility open for all of you while we work on the brand new park to come next year!

The City was able to work with its wonderful urban renewal agency, ignite CDA, to help fund half of the new skate park facility in Memorial Field. Unfortunately, the City did not get awarded the other half of funds from the state, which it sought as a grant.

We are still fully committed to getting that other half of funding and for the park to come online in 2018.

Thanks so much for your patience while we make these improvements, and we hope you enjoy this new location at Sunset Park!

While it's really your decision, I would say that the answer here is clear. If you're looking to mount an antenna or satellite dish to your home, the best choice is the wall mount. Why? Because you're not making holes in your roof. If you drill holes in the roof, there's always a chance that you won't do it right and the roof will leak.

In Throwback Thursday, we're looking back at the articles we're most proud of from the first ten years of The Solid Signal Blog, as well as other old stuff we think is super-neato.

Never heard of those services? How about if I called them DIRECTV and DISH? On a lazy day in December 2013, I brought you the history of these services and their names. I'm reprinting it here, mostly because it's a lazy day in June 2017.

          Google Earth, class is now in session   

So much of what students learn in the classroom—from social studies to history, science and literature—relates to a geographic place on Earth. Recently, we announced a new version of Google Earth, and since then, educators have been telling us what a valuable tool Google Earth is for their students. They use the “I’m feeling lucky” feature to inspire writing exercises, do research exercises with Knowledge Cards, and explore satellite imagery and cloud strata with their students. Now, to make it even easier for teachers to use Google Earth in the classroom, we’ve created a new “Education” category in the Voyager section, which includes new stories—complete with classroom activities—from National Geographic Society, PBS Education, HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue.

Edu-category600px.gif
Just click the new "Education" category on the Voyager homepage for new stories, complete with classroom activities for teachers

The National Geographic Society stories take students on adventures following explorers through the Middle East, India, and coral reefs. To supplement the experience, National Geographic Society created idea for activities that highlight a range of geographical concepts, such as interpreting land forms and comparing map projections.

With PBS Education, classrooms can go back in time and track the paths of famous explorers, from Lewis and Clark to the Vikings. As students follow along, they, in turn, become modern-day explorers.

HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue created Voyager stories more geared towards science and math. With HHMI Biointeractive, students join “Scientists at Work” as they investigate important problems, from endangered coral reefs to the Ebola outbreak. And Mission Blue’s story teaches students about the unique oceanographic conditions of Costa Rica thermal dome. Short videos and questions embedded in the stories will help guide students with their own scientific research.

Educators everywhere can find classroom activities (created by teachers, for teachers) at our new Google Earth Education website, and easily share locations and stories directly to Google Classroom. In addition, this week Google Earth will become an Additional Service for Google for Education users, which can be managed by IT administrators through the Google Admin console.

Google Earth was built to inspire curious minds to explore, learn and care about our vast, fragile planet. With these updates, we’re excited to make it easier for the next generation to see the world from a new perspective.

          Just another day in Paradise!    

At lunchtime when the sun had gotten too hot, my girlfriend and I had decided to walk up the beach and explore, but first we called at the Beach Bar to rehydrate, while she was finishing her drink, I went onto the sand and was heading towards the surf. Out of nowhere a guy appeared and grabbed my arm “Do you like Black Girls” he said, fearing that this was some sort of Racist questionnaire that you had to pass before they allowed you onto the beach, I said of course I do, why doesn’t everyone? Good he said, I’ve got just the girl for you, she’s in the bushes, then he started dragging me towards them.

The cavalry arrived in the shape of my alabaster skinned and fast approaching English Rose girlfriend. He loosened his grip on me as he was temporarily blinded by the glare coming off her, I was OK as I had my polarized Wayfarers on, but he had to shield his eyes. I yanked my arm free and said “as tempting as that sounds, she wouldn’t be too happy” He squinted at her in the distance, then asked if I wanted to buy some Ganja instead?, No I don’t, I am very happy with her and I don’t need drugs thank you very much. I could tell he thought I was making a mistake and clearly not put off he waved something in my face, presumably for me to sniff, and said, Aloe Vera ! He was using the Barbadian version of the Pendle system, he didn’t want to let me get away without making a sale, and he wouldn’t take No for an answer. Starting to lose my patience, I snapped back “What? ” he repeated “Aloe Vera, Aloe Vera Leaf, good for sunburn, good for hair shampoo”, and then he made a gesture with his hands that suggested if you ate it, it had the same properties as Viagra, I thought if that was true, how come the shampoo didn't make your hair stand on end.

My Girlfriend was nearly in earshot now, keen to end the conversation before she got the wrong end of the stick, and I got the blame for accosting a local to find out if there was a brothel on the beach. I turned to him and said look clear off, I don’t want a Woman, I don’t want Ganja and I don’t want any of your Fucking Aloe Vera either. Finally admitting defeat he wandered off in the direction of the bushes cursing and probably thinking to himself the same as I do when a customer tells me That "they're just looking", I’m only doing my job, there’s no pleasing some folk! however I also think hold on a minute, this is a business and I didn't drag you onto the forecourt!

In case you were wondering, I didn't take these photos of Ulrika
Further up the beach we came to the point where the stretch of beach was owned by the exclusive and unbelievable expensive SandyLane Resort. I got an uneasy feeling. I had heard movement, I was expecting to be accosted by another, Aloe Vera wielding, Ganja selling Pimp, but I caught sight of a group of guys hiding in the bushes, and breathed a sigh of relief when I saw they were all holding cameras with lenses the size of Jodrell Bank. It was the Paparazzi, we found out later that Ulrika Johnson was staying at the Sandy Lane hotel and they were waiting patiently to get a shot of her cellulite or a Kodak Moment bikini malfunction that they could sell to the tabloids and make a fortune.

On our Arrival at the Hotel the Kuoni Holiday Representative had warned all the new guests, paying special attention and repeating herself to the Honeymooners that no matter how overcome with lust, or how good an idea it seems at the time, do NOT under any circumstances seek out a secluded section of a beach’ or be the last people to leave. She obviously didn’t want to scare the shit out of us so stopped short of telling us exactly what to expect if we did, SHE SHOULD HAVE DONE! Some people are too stupid to live!  We've all seen the hideous warnings on cigarette packets, yet there are still people who smoke. Her message came across as some Barbadians weren’t quite as nice as the ones who were refilling our glasses of ice cold Rum Punch at the Tropical Escape Welcome Reception.


The first day we stayed close to the Hotel, just venturing across the road to watch the sunset
from the Beach Bar. I am not a good enough writer and don’t have the vocabulary to describe what an amazing sight the sunset is. I can tell you that it was an experience that I will never forget, even the locals who have seen it thousands of times before stop what they’re doing to watch every night. It brought a gasp from the other patrons in the bar who were witnessing it for the first time, and it reduced my girlfriend to tears as the last bit of the sun dipped below the horizon at 6.00 pm on the dot, and the sky turned jet black.

Normally I heed warnings, I’m not an “it will never happen to me” type of guy, and as you can see if you read the rest of my blogs, if it can happen to me, it will. I can only think that on our second day of the beautiful Barbados sunshine, consuming numerous banana daiquiris mixed to perfection by Edwin Star Boy the bartender at our all inclusive hotel during the day, and the bottle of Champagne we drunk at the Bombas Beach Bar (now The Blue Monkey Bar) while sheltering from the intense heat, had affected my judgement

We had decided that we had plenty of time to go for a stroll along the beach, before returning to the bar to watch another compulsory sunset. I had turned left and gone for a run up the beach in the morning and discovered the monument to the 78 people who died on Cubana de Aviacon Flight 455 which had taken off from Grantley Adams Airport and had crashed in to the Caribbean Sea just off the beach when 2 bombs exploded and blew it out of the sky. As we were planning a helicopter ride round the island the next day,  I didn’t want to make the mistake of negging my girlfriend out so I steered her in the opposite direction, thatturned out to be a bigger mistake

Barbados was paradise, we had adjusted to the climate and it was like starring in our very own Bounty advert. The relaxed atmosphere and the white sandy beaches were so far removed from Preston and the hustle and bustle we had to endure in our daily work lives. We had both desperately needed a break and decided on a whim to take a romantic holiday together. The setting was idyllic we were chilled out and engrossed in each other’s company we were laughing and talking, as we sauntered aimlessly along the beach. The Sun was now very low in the sky, I had lost track of time, the distance we had walked and where we were.


Again I got an uneasy feeling and I caught sight of a slight movement in my peripheral vision, there were 2 guys hiding in the bushes, and by the look of them it wasn’t my picture that they were after. It was too late to back track. I didn’t let on that I had seen them, I could tell they had been laying in wait, and were up to no good. I couldn’t hear their footsteps on the sand, but I knew they had come out of the bushes and were following behind us. I wasn’t ready to confront them yet.

To say that I was scared was an understatement, my heart was racing, I scanned the beach but there was no one in site, there was nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, I wasn’t so much scared for me but I had endangered my girlfriend and put her in harm’s way, tipsy or not, I should have known better. We were both wearing swimming costumes, we had no money or jewellery, and I certainly had nothing hidden in my Speedos that these guys would be interested in, the situation I had walked into was too horrendous to contemplate.

I saw what I needed, bent down quickly picked it up, and turned round to face my girlfriend I showed her the rock. She was bemused and although she knows better now I could tell it wasn’t the type of rock that she hoped I would be giving her on this holiday. For the first time I made eye contact with the 2 guys behind, there was no reason for them to be there, but if they were going to try anything then one of us was going to learn a lesson they would never forget. Mine would be listen to what the Holiday Rep tells you in future, but theirs would be that I would defend my girlfriend, to my last breath or theirs whichever came first.

I maintained eye contact with them, but my girlfriend was staring at me, she couldn’t understand the significance of a rock, eventually she broke the silence “What? What is it? Is it a fossil? I can’t see anything!” trying my best not to hyperventilate, I replied “No, it’s just a big rock” Curious she said well what are you going to do with it, worrying that she may have to leave the shoes behind that she’d loaded into my suitcase she said “you can’t take it home as a souvenir, or you’ll have to pay for excess baggage!

The two guys were almost level with us, they were watching me, and watching the rock
which I was holding at arm’s length, my girlfriend realised that there was something wrong, she followed the direction of my gaze to see what I was staring at and then she too became aware of their presence, I stepped in front of her and I let her in on my plan I nodded my head in their direction, giving the 2 guys a  “Come On then I dare you look, tossing the rock up in the air, praying to god that I looked tough and that my catching abilities wouldn’t desert me on this occasion, I had briefly considered hurling the rock at the Palm trees that they were stood under and hoping that they would become 2 of the 150 people a year that are killed by falling coconuts. I decided that was a bit of a long shot so I said to my girlfriend “See the big guy, I’m going to hit him as hard as I fucking can with it”.

There is a moment when you’re dealing with a customer who’s buying a car, you can see in their eyes what they’re thinking, “is he bluffing, can I get more discount, or is that really the very best deal he can do”, Word of warning if you’re trying to buy a car from me, I’m not a good liar, so I don’t usually bluff” and you can tell from my eyes exactly what I’m thinking, usually its “if you think you can get a better deal elsewhere, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!” however on this occasion I had just become the World’s Best Bluffer. Our two would-be assailants continued towards us in quite a threatening manner but must have decided that the best deal available to them would be to carry on walking up the beach without getting their heads smashed in with a rock, or a coconut if my aim was a bit off and I hit a tree.

I don’t usually like crowded beaches but I can honestly say that it was a relief to get back to one. I’d had enough excitement for one holiday, or so it seemed at the time

A couple of nights later we had hired a car and gone to a restaurant that had been recommended to us. It was owned by an English guy. When we finished our meal, we went and sat at the bar to chat to him. He was studying an image on a piece of paper, it looked like a scan that pregnant women have, it was of no interest to me, but my Girlfriend had to ask! Turns out it he had downloaded the image from a meteorological website. It was a satellite image of Hurricane Jose which was a Category 2 and was heading towards Barbados, it was due to hit us the next day. He advised us to go back to our Hotel immediately.

When we arrived the staff were busy boarding up the windows I asked if they wanted any help but they were ok, so we returned to our room to find a note had been slipped under our door “Be ready to leave at an hour’s notice” we packed our bags but I didn’t want to sit in our room for the rest of the night and the Prince Nasseem Hamed v Cesar Soto fight was being shown live on the big screen at The Coach House Bar next door, I informed reception where we would be and then we braved it through the now torrential rain and I got us a couple of drinks. I had been quite a long time at the bar, as there was a crowd  and as I was British they asked me what I thought of Prince Naseem.

When I returned to our table it was obvious that my girlfriend was upset and she was fighting back the tears. I was hoping it was delayed reaction from tonight’s sunset, although I didn’t know for sure, I suspected that It may have been something I had done, I was right. No sooner had I sat down, than I was on the receiving end of a telling off. “There’s a hurricane approaching and you don’t care do you, you’re enjoying it, you just think everything will be ok and that you will have another story to tell your daft mates don’t you” I may never see my children again, and you’re there in your element, and offering to help them barricade the hotel windows!”

Now at this point the 1st round of the Boxing Match had started on the TV above her head, so while I was doing my best to appear sympathetic, and console her I may have been paying more attention to the Naseem Hamed fight and not the one that we were currently having. I spoke before I considered what I was saying “Don’t worry, I’ve been on holiday with loads of women, and I’ve never lost one yet” Now if you were my Girlfriend isn’t that something that you would find comforting? No she didn’t either.

You have no idea how much I regret saying that and have been made to suffer, or the pain that one off the cuff remark has caused me since, anyway in the interest of fairness and balance I would like to point out that I am an arrogant, conceited Bastard, and the other Women I had been on holiday up to that point in time must have been Bimbo’s, allegedly!

As for the Hurricane, like our would be assailants, it veered off at the last minute and left us alone.

Just another day in Paradise!

          Assclowns of the Week #105: Blame it on Paris or Putin edition   
"Therefore, in order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord -- (applause)" -Donald Trump
     Greetings, global cooling deniers, and welcome to a long, long overdue Assclowns of the Week. And it has been a busy week with Z list comedian Kathy Griffin (3) having Daniel Pearl fantasies about Donald Trump, Trump (1) jerking us off the Paris Climate Accord, Jared Kushner (6) being Vladimir Putin's back door man and Debbie Wasserman Schultz's (10) experiment in voice acting. So let's put on our water wings and as we paddle in the rising water review this week's top 10 assclowns and much, much more.

10) Debbie Wasserman Schultz
     Democrats used to be the smart ones. They were so smart, in fact, that for decades Republicans had accused them of being elitists. But gradually, establishment Democrats began moving in Republican and corporate circles in a highly successful attempt to hedge against charges of intellectual elitism. To wit:
     Last Thursday, an odd phone call came into Elizabeth Lee Beck's law office. Ms. Beck's law firm is the one litigating the DNC fraud lawsuit. The caller used a voice synthesizer so that it sounded "robotic and genderless." The voice made an inquiry: How's it going with the lawsuit? The receptionist gave the caller all the publicly available information then hung up. But apparently the caller forgot about a decades-old innovation known to the rest of elitist, tech-savvy people as caller ID.

     Oops. Looks as if the call came from Debbie Wasserman Schultz' Aventura, FL congressional office. Think they could be a little shaken up by the lawsuit and what the investigation will dig up? This is actually one step stupider than Donald Trump calling People Magazine and pretending to be a publicist named "John Miller." Or maybe this is evidence of Putin striking again.

9) EPA Director Scott Pruitt
     Just hours after Donnie Dumbo decided to pull us out of the Paris Climate Accord, the usual army of flacks took to the airways and did the talking head circuit, particularly climate change denier and EPA head Scott Pruitt. Trump making Pruitt the head of the EPA was on a par with making Ted Nugent the head of PETA. On CNN, Pruitt was grilled by Jake Tapper and this exchange took place:
Tapper: "Does the President believe climate change is a hoax?
Pruitt: "This is not about whether climate change is occurring or not."
     For once, Pruitt is right, albeit accidentally. The Paris Climate Accord was never about whether or not global warming is a hoax but acknowledging it is not and taking all the appropriate steps to curb the emission of greenhouse gases on a global scale. Late last month, Pruitt said satellite data proves global warming is slowing down, even though virtually every climate scientist on earth had confirmed the opposite. Hell, what did you expect from a guy who once tried to sue 13 times the same regulatory agency that he now heads up?

8) Rep. Darrel Issa
     Either Darrel Issa is preparing for his next career as a roofer for when he gets thrown out of Congress next year or he's too scared to face his own constituents. On Tuesday May 30, Issa showed up at his Congressional office in Vista, CA and was met with a knot of constituents who were angry about being excluded from a fake Town Hall Issa had recently held that admitted only Republican-friendly voters. Issa immediately ignored the small crowd, where he then did a creditable job of Michael Scott from The Office and hid on the roof. In a baleful move, Issa then took pictures of the protesters below. This knocks us down to just half a notch above a pitchfork and torch-wielding banana republic and after this I don't see how Issa can overcome a challenge from Democrat Mike Levin, who was savvy enough to quickly jump on this.
     At least Sean Spicer had the sense to hide in the White House bushes on ground level. And, oh, speak of the Devil's jester and he will come...

7)  Donald Trump and Sean Spicer
     Donald Trump recently took to Twitter just after midnight and seemed to drunk-text the world about the "constant negative press" and "covfefe". Then the day after, Trump made the mistake of trotting out Sean Spicer to explain what he meant. When asked by the press what Trump meant in his latest semi-coherent tweet, Spicey answered with, "The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant." Obviously, not included among that small elite group are the editors of Merriam Webster, Oxford and the New American Heritage dictionaries.
     Meanwhile, White House groupie Sarah Palin is immensely grateful to Mr. Trump for making most of us forget about her coining the word, "refudiate."

6) Jared Kushner
     A week ago (at the very end of the news cycle as it was not broken until after five PM last Friday). it was reported that Donald Trump's son in law Jared Kushner had conspired with Russian officials to set up a secret back channel to Moscow as far back as last December. This was backed up by five officials knowledgeable of the meeting. This marked a radical departure for US policy because this was a case of a private citizen working with diplomats from a hostile state to reach the highest levels of Russian political power behind the backs of the 17 intelligence agencies.
     On a very abstract level, this is not unprecedented. However, Professor Richard Moss, author of the book, Nixon’s Back Channel to Moscow: Confidential Diplomacy and Detente, recently said that such informal back channels are meant to supplement, not supplant official policy. Kushner's harebrained scheme was to use Russian equipment in Russian embassies to contact the highest echelon of Russia's political hierarchy (presumably Putin). And it's impossible to think Kushner would've even broached the subject behind Trump's back rather than Trump using his son in law as an envoy.
     But, hey, Michael Flynn was at that same meeting that Kushner failed to report on his SF86 form when he applied for his top secret security clearance and later he met with a powerful Russian banker (a meeting neither wants to talk about). Sounds legit to me. And I'm sure at the GOP National convention last summer, Trump, Flynn, Sessions and the rest of his mafia spoke with Kislyak (then failed to mention it) about Russia's cute little dancing bears and what a shame it was that Ted Nugent hasn't been entered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

5) Donald Trump
     I'm sure when Fox host Kimberly Guilfoyle revealed today that Donald Trump actually called her to ask her how to do his job, she was bragging and wasn't at all horrified that he was soliciting advice from a talking head on how to run the most powerful nation on earth.
     Yes, if you're looking for suspects for who made Donnie Dumbo walk away from the Paris Climate Accord as well as what will surely be a huge raft of disastrous policy decisions, you can add to right wing nut jobs Steve Bannon and Scott Pruitt a walking brain stem attached to two legs named Kimberly Guilfoyle.
     Imagine the outrage that would've ensued if it had come out that Obama had conspired with MSNBC for advice on policy matters...

4) The White House
     June is National Pride Month. It is set in June in commemoration of the Stonewall riot that took place in June of 1969. Since his first year as President and straight through until last year, President Barack Obama had designated June Pride Month. But things have changed considerably since January 20th. After proclaiming things such as National Homeownership Month and other pseudo month-long holidays, Trump failed to name June Pride Month. No doubt, his baleful hangeron Mike Pence (who by now must be measuring the Oval Office for racks and Iron Maidens), had some influence with this "oversight."
     Pence, you might remember, as Indiana's governor, signed into law the "It's OK to Discriminate Against Teh Gays Because I'm Giving You a Get Out of Free Jail Card Named Religion" bill. Pence was also the piece of shit who'd made it legal to siphon funds from HIV research to fund, instead, gay conversion therapy outfits. And still, reconstituted Log Cabin Republicans and big gay donors cling to this guy like he's the Second Coming of Harvey Milk. Their reason? See lead image above.

3) Kathy Griffin
     It's one thing to lampoon the President of the United States, whoever it is, and even call for their impeachment when circumstances warrant it. But part-time celebrity Kathy Griffin took herself a bit too seriously and was videotaped holding up a fake, blood-drenched Donald Trump head as if she was some ISIS terrorist with a new trophy. Despite how absurdly easy it is to ridicule Donald Trump, the Office of the Presidency, if nothing else, needs to be respected and this plainly sends out the wrong message to anyone with too much time and ammo on their hands. As a result of this stupid stunt, Griffin lost her one night a year gig on CNN plus at least one commercial endorsement.
     However, Griffin's tastelessness aside, it was amusing to see the right wing nut jobs (such as California Patriot, my latest stalker and troll), lose their shit over it while remaining silent about all the burning lynchings in effigy we saw over the last eight years (Sasha Obama was also 11, as is Barron Trump, when an effigy of her father was hung and burned in 2008.). What was funniest was Trump himself whining about how his kids were having a hard time dealing with the gory imagery .

     Like these kids, for instance?

2) Hillary fucking Clinton
     Yes. Her again. For those about to stick their faces in barf bags, we salute you.
     Showing that she'd learned absolutely nada through the countless mistakes made by her Tammany Hall 2.0 campaign, Hillary fucking Clinton took to Codecon and essentially blamed her campaign's failure despite massive backing from women, the establishment Democrats, the MSM, Wall Street and the DNC on everyone who wasn't married to the 42nd president.
     The newly-rebranded radical centrist also sorta half-joked that Trump's word of the day "covfefe" was a code to the Russians. Yes, it was Vlad Putin who orchestrated her ignoring an important union just before election night, alienated Hispanics with her "taco bowl outreach" and "abuela" comments and shoved her into bed with every banking and corporate scumbag within 100 miles of Wall Street.
     Oh, and she's writing a new memoir that'll crystallize these conspiracy theories for public consumption because the consolation of a high seven figure advance is exactly what Hillary fucking Clinton deserves after perhaps the most embarrassing defeat in US political history.

1) "President" Donald Trump
     Also late this past week, the Koch brothers' latest temp worker (aka US President Donald Trump) did as many of us predicted and pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord like his father Fred should've done from his wife's snatch back in 1945. That's right, this was in defiance of the skepticism of withdrawing from the Accord by business leaders, champion polluter Rex Tillerson, Gary Cohn and even the First Lady Ivanka. This was bad enough, as the Paris Accord has 194 other participating nations (including North Korea). This puts us in a tiny, elite community with Syria and Nicaragua (which won't be joining in for very good reasons).
     But Trump, inevitably, made it much worse by taking to the Rose Garden and explaining his reasons, all of which were horseshit that could benefit only the flowers behind him. In the World According to Trump, if we ever violated the Accord, they could sue us (No, they can't.) Meaning the Accord would legally bind us (No, it wouldn't). We could renegotiate it later as if it's another bankruptcy settlement (No, we can't).
     Essentially, as if he hadn't during his Hindenburg of a foreign trip last month, Trump is isolating us from the rest of the planet save for Russia in every conceivable way and this is the icing on the cake. German Chancellor Angela Merkel took the extraordinary step of saying the rest of the world could no longer rely on the US. French President Macron has been in Trump's grill ever since his decision (which Trump blamed on the latter's "aggressive handshake"). And at least three governors of big states (CA, NY and WA) have decided to sign on to the climate accord. Meaning, far from Trump distancing himself from the rest of the planet, the planet's moving on without him.
     Fellow billionaire Elon Musk and Disney CEO Bob Iger are among them.

Dishonorable Mention


     In a silly yet tragic reprise of Get Shorty, last March Oklahoma state senator and Trump backer Ralph Shortey was caught in a motel room with an underaged boy whom Shortey had solicited for sex via text message. To show how unbelievably stupid Republicans are, the day after he was busted for "engaging in child prostitution, prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church, and transporting a minor for the purposes of prostitution", he posted the above picture of himself on Facebook with Donald Trump, Jr, which I'm sure must've absolutely thrilled the First Family. To show what a craven piece of shit Shortey is, police found him hidden behind the door just opened by the underaged boy (Maybe he should have called Darrell Issa for tips on evasion). Oh, I'm sorry, did I refer to Shortey as an OK state senator? He's a former state senator now. He resigned his post so he can spend more time with NAMBLA.

          Former AG Youth Pastor Charged With Sodomy, Child Molestation   

A youth and children's worker pleaded not guilty to multiple crimes, including child molestation and sodomy, among other charges. Homer Singleton, who goes by Jay, did plead guilty to contempt of court charges.

Columbus, Georgia, police arrested Singleton in June after they responded to a child's call about abuse.

Edgewood Assembly of God says Singleton was on their staff two years ago.

"Two years ago, he was on staff here and left Edgewood Assembly of God. My heart goes out to the family. They need prayer. Jay needs prayer," Edgewood AG Pastor Charles Hayes says in a statement.

Singleton recently volunteered for a satellite campus of a popular church in the area.

"We are saddened about the alleged situation here. We will continue to pray for the family, his wife and his son. The church is here to support them during this horrible situation. As a church, we will do everything we can to provide the necessary support," Pastor Robert French with the Refuge Church says. {eoa}

 


          Sign of the Times? Iran Uses Star of David as Target for Missile Practice   

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon revealed new information to the United Nations Security Council Wednesday about Iran's ballistic missile program and the country's intention to harm Israel.

In a document distributed to the Council members, Danon provided new satellite imagery from last November, showing the Iranian military using the Star of David as the intended target of the Qiam, a medium-range MTCR category one ballistic missile. The Star of David was painted in white on the ground as the target, and a crater from the impact of the missile is visible next to the Jewish symbol.

Furthermore, the launch was in direct violation of Security Council Resolution 2231.

"This use of the Star of David as target practice is hateful and unacceptable," Danon stated in a letter to the council. "The missile launch is not only a direct violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231, but is also a clear evidence of Iran's continued intention to harm the State of Israel."

Last month, the Iranians fired ballistic missiles at targets in Syria and then released statements threatening Israel, the Israeli mission to the U.N. recalled, saying it was a continuation of a series of ballistic missile tests conducted by the Iranians since 2015 in defiance of the Security Council resolution.

"The targeting of a sacred symbol of Judaism is abhorrent," Danon asserted regarding the blatant display of violent anti-Semitism. "It is the Iranians who prop up the Assad regime as hundreds of thousands are killed, finance the terrorists of Hezbollah as they threaten the citizens of Israel and support extremists and tyrants throughout the Middle East and around the world. I call on the Security Council to respond decisively to these Iranian violations and provocations." {eoa}

          National Portrait: Peter Beck - NZ space pioneer once mocked for his vision   
As a kid, Peter Beck wanted to build rockets when he grew up.

"In fact," the now 40-year-old chief executive of Rocket Lab says, "my parents were called into a meeting with the [high school] careers counsellor because my description of what I wanted to do with my career didn't fit any pre-defined boxes."

Sure, he's since gone on to become the public face of New Zealand's nascent space industry by building a start-up satellite launching company that employs about 200 staff, but in his teenage years, Beck's aspirations were considered "a little bit nutty".

"I remember the careers adviser commenting that it was just absurdly unachievable."

          Opinion: Cutting the Cord: Relief for Seniors elusive   
By Amy Schumacher The cost of Satellite and Cable television packages seems to be increasing each year. With the recent merger of Time Warner Cable and Spectrum and the emergence of such items as the Amazon Fire Stick, the one’s who seem to suffer the most are senior citizens with limited resources. In a Bladen Online investigation, when searching for cable or satellite companies who offer discounts or other incentives for senior citizens, it was learned there are very few options available to senior adults. Time Warner Cable, now known as Spectrum, offers no senior citizen discounts at all. Spectrum does, however, offer promotional discounts but after one year the .....
          Journée mondiale des astéroïdes: les techniques pour les empêcher de dévaster la Terre   

ESPACE - Depuis deux ans, les astéroïdes ont droit à une Journée internationale. Ce vendredi 30 juin, pour la première fois, elle est même reconnue par l'ONU. Mais l'idée n'est pas de célébrer les petits et gros cailloux qui se baladent dans le système solaire. Mais surtout d'appeler les Terriens à prendre conscience des dangers que représentent ces petits corps et à soutenir les initiatives pour tenter de se protéger de la menace.

"Un jour, nous pourrions être heurtés par un astéroïde et il faut absolument que nous soyons mieux préparés que ce n'est le cas actuellement", explique à l'AFP le cinéaste allemand Grigorij Richters, l'un des fondateurs de l'Asteroid Day.

Plus de 700 événements se dérouleront à cette occasion dans 190 pays, assurent les organisateurs qui diffuseront pendant 24 heures d'affilée un programme en live sur internet, orchestré depuis le Luxembourg. Astrophysiciens, astronomes, agences spatiales feront le point sur la diversité des astéroïdes et les risques qu'ils font courir aux habitants de la planète.

Depuis sa naissance, il y a 4,5 milliards d'années, la planète a subi de nombreuses collisions avec des astéroïdes. "Ces objets ont contribué à l'apparition de la vie sur Terre, en apportant de l'eau, des matériaux organiques", relève Antonella Barucci, astronome de l'Observatoire de Paris.

Beaucoup d'astéroïdes connus, mais...

Mais ils ont aussi occasionné des destructions. C'est un astéroïde tombé sur le Mexique qui serait responsable de la disparition des dinosaures il y a 65 millions d'années. Quant à la date du 30 juin, elle n'a pas été choisie au hasard. En 1908, un astéroïde de 40 mètres s'écrasait en Sibérie, avec une puissance estimée à près de 30 fois la bombe d'Hiroshima.

Mais alors que faire? Déjà, il faut apprendre à mieux connaître ces voyageurs de l'espace.

De nombreux programmes de recherche tentent de répertorier les objets qui croisent, de près ou de loin, l'orbite de la Terre. Ainsi, 90% des astéroïdes qui représentent un risque d'extinction de l'humanité (plus d'un kilomètre de diamètre) sont répertoriés, estime la Nasa. Et les risques d'anéantissement de l'espèce humaine dans les 100 ans sont inférieurs à 0.01%.

Mais ce n'est pas le cas pour les plus petits, qui peuvent pourtant causer de sérieux dégâts. Ainsi, l'agence américaine pense que seuls 30% des météores de 160 mètres et plus sont répertoriés. Pour ceux de 30 mètres, on passe à 1%. De plus, si l'on connait assez bien la trajectoire des astéroïdes répertoriés, elle peut aussi changer, en fonction de plusieurs phénomènes.

Bombe nucléaire (mais pas pour le détruire)

Tout dépend de la taille de l'astéroïde et du temps dont on dispose pour agir. "Pour les astéroïdes de toute petite taille, inférieurs à 50 mètres, avec un temps d'impact très court, la seule chose que l'on puisse faire, c'est de prédire le point d'impact et d'évacuer la zone", déclare à l'AFP Ian Carnelli, chef du projet AIM (Asteroid Impact Mission) à l'Agence spatiale européenne (ESA).

Si les risques sont assez faibles, ils font froid dans le dos. Ainsi, précise le rapport, les fameux astéroïdes de plus de 140 mètres, s'ils venaient à toucher la Terre, auraient une force équivalente au minimum à 60 millions de tonnes de TNT, plus que n'importe quelle bombe atomique jamais testée.

Alors que faire pour empêcher un contact? Si l'objet est plus gros, l'idée est d'éviter la collision en déviant l'astéroïde, souligne Daniel Hestroffer, de l'Observatoire de Paris. Il y a principalement trois techniques pour dévier les astéroïdes.

La première consiste à lancer une ogive nucléaire dans l'espace et à la faire exploser "près de l'astéroïde afin que l'énergie se dépose sur la surface et pousse l'astéroïde", indique Ian Carnelli.

Cette technique n'est valable que pour un astéroïde de très grande taille (supérieure à 1 kilomètre). Appliquée à un petit astéroïde, elle risquerait de détruire l'objet en morceaux qui pourraient tomber sur la Terre. Le remède serait pire que le mal. Des travaux de simulation sur ordinateur de cette technique sont réalisés notamment aux Etats-Unis mais personne ne songe à la tester pour de vrai dans l'espace, souligne Ian Carnelli.

Tracteur gravitationnel

Deuxième méthode, celle du "tracteur gravitationnel", valable pour les astéroïdes de petite taille, et pour lesquels on dispose de beaucoup de temps pour agir. Elle consiste à envoyer un assemblage assez massif de satellites artificiels près de l'astéroïde. La force de gravitation qui s'exercera permettra de modifier petit à petit l'orbite de l'astéroïde.

Troisième technique, celle de l'"impacteur cinétique" pour les astéroïdes de taille moyenne (entre 50 mètres et plusieurs centaines de mètres). Elle consiste à envoyer un satellite artificiel heurter à très grande vitesse l'astéroïde. Cela doit permettre de changer la vitesse de celui-ci et de dévier sa trajectoire. C'est la méthode la plus avancée.

Une mission test américano-européenne baptisée AIDA est en préparation. Les Américains doivent envoyer dans l'espace un engin autoguidé baptisé DART. Il doit percuter en 2022 la Lune de l'astéroïde Didymos, afin de changer légèrement sa vitesse.

Mais le volet européen AIM, qui consistait à envoyer une sonde séparée pour prendre des images avant, pendant et après l'impact, bat de l'aile faute d'un soutien financier suffisant des Etats membres de l'ESA. La sonde AIM ne pourra pas être lancée en 2020 comme prévu, a reconnu l'ESA qui réfléchit à envoyer une caméra qui volerait sur DART et se détacherait peu avant l'impact.

Début 2017, la Maison Blanche a publié un rapport sur le sujet, qui fait le point sur notre connaissance actuelle de la menace astéroïde et évoque sept "objectifs stratégiques" pour que les Etats-Unis soient prêts au cas où une grosse météorite menace de s'écraser sur la Terre. Espérons que ces procédures n'aient jamais besoin d'être appliquées.

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

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday it appears the Syrian government is preparing for another chemical weapons attack and it warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad he and his military would "pay a heavy price" if it conducts such an attack.The White House statement said preparations by Syria were similar to those undertaken before an April 4 chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians and prompted President Donald Trump to order a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.Trump ordered the strike on the Shayrat airfield in Syria in April in reaction to what Washington said was a poison gas attack by Assad's government that killed at least 70 people in rebel-held territory. Syria denied it carried out the attack.The strike put Washington in confrontation with Russia, which has advisers in Syria aiding its close ally Assad.U.S. officials at the time called the intervention a "one-off" intended to deter future chemical weapons attacks and not an expansion of the U.S. role in the Syrian war.(Reporting by Eric Beech; Writing by Yara Bayoumy; Editing by Sandra Maler and Paul Tait)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Before tragedy strikes': Liberals launch centre to prevent homegrown terrorism-[CBC]-yahoonews-June 26, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          United Launch Alliance beats SpaceX to win Air Force launch   

By Irene Klotz

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla () Reuters – - United Launch Alliance, a partnership of Lockheed Martin Corp and Boeing Co , for the first time beat Elon Musk's SpaceX in competition for an Air Force satellite launch, both launch companies said on Friday.

The contact covers launch services for multiple satellites aboard an Atlas 5 rocket in June 2019. The contract value is $191,141,581, the Air Force said.

United Launch Alliance, which previously had a monopoly on launches, has not won a competition with SpaceX since the company won a contract for an Air Force launch business with a contract award in 2016.

A SpaceX official told Reuters it did not expect to win this bidding competition because the mission required a heavy-lift launcher and its Falcon Heavy booster has not yet flown.

“The mission performance required that we bid Falcon Heavy,” SpaceX spokesman John Taylor wrote in a email to Reuters.

“We did submit a bid, but with the knowledge that our first Falcon Heavy flight might occur after the time of the award.  Given we have not flown Falcon Heavy, we did not anticipate winning this mission,” he said.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is expected to debut this year.

          Boko Haram terrorists slaughter hundreds--perhaps thousands--of Nigerians; US cable news too busy in Paris

Here are terrorists brutally murdering--burning alive!--not just dozens, but as many as two thousand human beings in Baga, Nigeria. Same week as the AQAP attack in Paris. Just more deadly by orders of magnitude (and they're busily wiping out people in Cameroon now).

And yet... Did you see 24/7 cable news coverage of this horrific slaughter, as we saw of the Paris murders?

Can you guess why? Go on, guess.

UPDATE:

Amnesty International has details. Awful, sick-making details. And satellite shots that give one a clearer appreciation for the scope of these shocking attacks (click to enlarge):

@Steve Blackband, <i>"And controlled with magnets? Its a laser – light beam – not charged particles"</i> Yes, but you can control a mirror in the same way. Once the satellites are in place the lasers are probably magnetically orientated and fixated. Let's say that some parts are easy to grasp while some of the details are 'incredibly' advanced.

One more mind-blower (for me). To keep the satellite from hitting the masses, they needed new micro thrusters. The force that they use for adjustments is about that exerted on your hand when a bacterium falls on it :-)

          Skeptics predicted it: Past Temperatures Adjusted Again! ‘Major correction’ to satellite data shows 140% faster warming since 1998   

Major correction to satellite data shows 140% faster warming since 1998

Dr. Roy Spencer forecasted that RSS TLT data will be altered :

“I expect there will soon be a revised TLT product from RSS which shows enhanced warming, too.

Here’s what I’m predicting:

1) neither John Christy nor I will be asked to review the paper

2) it will quickly sail through peer review (our UAH V6 paper is still not in print nearly 1 year after submission)

3) it will have many authors, including climate model people and the usual model pundits (e.g. Santer), which will supposedly lend legitimacy to the new data adjustments.

Let’s see how many of my 3 predictions come true.

-Roy”

It has happened exactly as Roy predicted.

          Comment on Alford Notes: Amazing Spider-Man #29 – Hail Hydra! by Evan   
I have a hard time remembering that the memories in Dr. Octopus come from a time before he learned that Peter is quote-unquote superior (I think), so it's jarring to read that he has a plan to kill everyone in Manhattan if his demands are not met. (That's a step down from Ends of the Earth, anyway.) When I read "attacked by office equipment wielding Hydra Agents," I imagined a nefarious filing cabinet ejecting a Hydra agent and a printer suddenly printing another Hydra agent. Then I realized there were some hyphens missing (i.e., office-equipment-wielding Hydra Agents). Good thing there was an illustration! ;) (Can I have some extra credit?) Was the satellite jump the last issue you gave an A? Wow! I'm interested to see if Neil agrees with you. If you ask me, Spider-man jumped the satellite a long time ago (and went out with a "FZZZ"), but as I've said before, I love hearing positive perspectives because it brings to my attention things I most likely missed. Great review!

          The Rocket Scientist   
Of late, I have been spending a lot of my screen time on Quora. To the detriment, I must add, of this blog, for which I apologise. The nice people at Quora voted me a Top Writer for 2016, which was very affirming. I enjoy answering the questions, and I really enjoy learning new and interesting things from other people, especially where I knew little before.

One of the other Quora Top Writers for 2016 is Sophia de Tricht, who describes herself on her Quora profile as a published writer, a transwoman and a rocket scientist. It also says she has been described as "Our aerospace engineer that fell from grace," which Sophia says she found mildly flattering. Her online resume suggested she was part of a team renovating and rebuilding a very interesting aircraft. She is currently a student at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, where she is specialising in commercial space flight.

Clearly she sounds like someone who has some interesting things to say, and I am always interested in hearing from inspiring people. As a result of reading her CV, I learned what an aerospike engine is: trust me; it's cool. I contacted her for an interview, and she responded immediately.
Sophia: Rocket scientist

So here is Sophia, sitting on my virtual couch, answering my virtual interview questions:

Tell us a little about yourself and your trans journey.

Well, let's see. I was raised in a non-permissive conservative Christian environment. A series of them, really. My dad sold computers in the halcyon years of the dot-com boom. Then he jumped ship (wisely) and went into medical supplies, but retained approximately the same territory. As the child of a salesman, I moved around a lot, but never to big cities. Atlanta was something I was aware of without having ever been there. We lived in swamps and dusty onion fields and recklessly racist nowhere towns. A couple of relatively nice places, but nice places in the middle of not-nice is its own kind of not-nice. The first time I ever went to a genuinely big city was when I left for boot camp at 18. It was in Chicago.

I never knew an environment of understanding. It was always an environment of shame and what I consider un-Christian practices. My family has always been heavily opposed to my being trans and I don't speak with them very much anymore and I always end up regretting it when I do.

Because I moved around a lot as a kid, I didn't really have good social skills, so I found it difficult to make friends. I had crushes, but once and only once in my entire school experience were they ever requited. I am the poster child for the unrequited crush. It was my normal.

But I tell you all that to tell you this: I didn't have the words to describe what was happening to me until I was 28 years old, when I came out. I was recently divorced and I had been asking a lot of big questions and it just seemed like the right time to explore and I did. I knew from the very first time that I felt right. I was in the military for about nine months before I was found out and discharged.

Can you tell us a bit about your career in the military? How did you get along being trans in the military?

I joined the Navy when I was 18 years old, in 2002. I joined to be a linguist. I failed the school and did some time as a deck seaman, doing general mariner work, then I got orders to intelligence school and I aced that and did that for the remainder of my time in the Navy.

I got out in 2010. Things were not going very well economically. So really I had only one choice: go back into the coast guard as an intelligence specialist.

Before I came out, I was... complicated. I attempted to drown out everything in ridiculous masculinity while mocking relentlessly all the trappings of masculinity. I loved to hate gym bros and dudes who put glass packs on their cars. I played airsoft, I tried to go for special operations, I qualified as a rescue swimmer... I was ridiculous. Just in general.

My military friends are a diverse lot. Most of them understand, some of them do not. There's not much of a conclusion you could draw from the demographics.

And you were an intelligence officer for a couple of years. Did they give you a cool car with machine guns behind the headlights, and an exploding pen?

Fallen from grace?
The intelligence thing is fascinating, but there's only so much I can say about it. I like to compare it to playing chess with foreign naval commanders. It was my job to know, through my various tricks, what they were going to do before they did. Then I told my commanders what the other commander was going to do.

Did they discharge you from the military because you came out as transgendered?

Yes. I was discharged because I was "unavailable for worldwide deployment."

Tell me how you acquired the title "aerospace engineer who fell from grace"?

I came to Embry-Riddle to be an aerospace engineering student. I took on several engineering projects and then I was seduced by the power of the dark side and went to commercial space operations. That's the "fall from grace" bit. It's flattering because I was never an actual engineer.

What drew you towards commercial space travel?

Gosh, when I was in 4th grade, my science text book had a false-colour image of Saturn and I was just enraptured by it. I had to know everything there was to know about that place. And so one of my enduring loves has always been space. Commercial space operations seemed to me to be a very lucrative way to work with space.

When one thinks of commercial space travel, one thinks of booking flights to the Moon, to a 7-star hotel under a giant dome. Realistically, however, space tourism is likely to mean Low-Earth Orbit, at least for the next couple of decades, surely?

Heh. Not even that. In the near future, it'll be suborbital flights. It's way easier to escape the atmosphere than it is to enter orbit. Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, XCOR, and WorldView are the passenger services and they're all suborbital at this point. The orbital stuff is all cargo right now. Human flights to the International Space Station will start probably next year, if all goes to plan. That said, there is a company that can get you a ride on a Soyuz, which is the only manned vehicle to go to orbit right now. And there's one that's just starting up that's trying to go to the moon for a very steep price.

I can imagine space tourism being a popular, but very niche industry. What other applications of commercial space flight might we be looking at?

Well, the very fabric of our lives in this modern age depends on space applications. I'll finish typing this answer and hit send, it will travel through the wi-fi and through some lines and it'll be beamed to a satellite and piped down to you. Then, in the morning, I'll get up, turn on my GPS and drive over to spend time with a friend. This weekend, I'll be using Google maps, which relies on remote sensing satellites as well as ground vehicles. And so on; the list is nearly endless.

Fun fact: basically all of that stuff is not just a space application, but a commercial space application. Satellites have to be replaced occasionally. Cargo has to go to the International Space Station, and trash has to leave. Asteroids can be mined. Agriculture can be greatly improved by affordable remote sensing satellite access.

What are you going to do with your BD-5J MicroJet once you get it airborne again? Looks a bit dangerous to me!

Dinky but dangerous: the BD-5J
Well, the aircraft is dangerous for the unexperienced pilot, and it's very difficult to get the required experience. It started off as a cool project for which I held a very impressive title. Otherwise, it was kind of a joke.

The current leadership on that project decided that once it was complete, it would become a static display. Permanently. I'm no longer involved with the project. But when I was, I was in charge of flight and occupational safety. On the one hand, I had to make sure that everyone wore their hard hats and safety glasses. On the other hand, I had to make sure that the aircraft was safe to fly, which in my case meant understanding where it had failed in the past and getting my proposals for a fix rejected. I started to rewrite the pilot's operating handbook, but the idea was also junked because of bureaucratic pressure.

You are fluent in several languages. How did that come about?

I don't know; it just kind of happened. It started with Japanese, because I thought it would be a challenge that me and my brother and my dad would do together. Of the three of us, I'm the only one who speaks it at all. I learned French in high school (my French is terrible), Norwegian because I was thinking about relocating there, Spanish in Latin America (three of my four deployments and my one shore station were all in Latin America--I should own a winter home in Panama), Persian in linguist school. Oddly, quite a bit of Arabic, Mandarin, Russian, and Korean as well; Mohawk because it's a dying language and I think it's kind of nifty to be the keeper of arcane knowledge, Tibetan and Mongolian because I thought they'd be fun.

What draws you to Quora?

Originally, I came across it when I googled a question I had. I stuck with it because I like sharing what I know, and as of this writing, I've been able to share my knowledge and views with 5.1 million people. I've been published in Forbes thrice and once in Newsweek. It's good exposure. Quora has a team of people that liaise with the publishers. They're the best.

If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing for trans people, what would it be?

Employment, hands down. I am sometimes asked to give talks about trans issues in the workplace for some bizarre reason. I'm comfortable with public speaking and I know trans issues, I assume. Anyway, I tell them all a couple of different things, one of which is "The only thing that is required for the success of transgender people in American society is that employment discrimination be eliminated." Look, it's easy to discriminate against trans people in employment. Even in places with strict laws in place. If that goes away, we'll start making money. A vast majority of our problems can be ameliorated to some extent by gainful, meaningful employment. Not as short-order cooks, but in corporate America.

I've been turned down for a lot of jobs (three years worth) after interviews that began with the manager falteringly not knowing how to handle speaking to me.

Tell us more about Sophia the woman?

Are Aviator glasses compulsory?
Sure. I love dancing. I belly dance and I'm trying to get proficient enough to perform, and I can flamenco a bit. Belly dancing is a great workout and it makes you feel very sexy once you get it down.

When I was in the coast guard, I qualified as a cutter surface swimmer which is like the more traditional rescue swimmer, but instead of a helicopter, we jump off the ship in a storm. I love swimming. I've swum in the deep ocean. I hear people say the idea terrifies them. I didn't mind it much. It's all time and practice and not thinking about it. It's salt water. You'll float in it if there's breath in your lungs. And you never swim far from the ship.

I fancy myself a funny lady. My father does stand-up back where he's from, we're an amusing lot. Granted, my two routines are essentially my best two sea stories--they're foul!

And who doesn't love a good wine? Some other things... I don't do much right now in my free time because I haven't got any. But on the rare occasion I do get some time off, I do enjoy heading out to see old friends and visit new places and drink and dance. Nothing finer.

What famous person would you most like to meet and why?

Hm. Lindsey Stirling, maybe? I quite fancy her. I dunno. I don't think I care much. I'm not actually very good at social interactions. It would almost certainly be awkward.

==

So, as always, a little reflection is in order.

First, Sophia seems to fit into the theme, touched on in some of my other posts, that some trans women attempt to become uber-masculine, as a way to "prove", to themselves and others, that they are men. Almost always, this causes great suffering. As I have mentioned before, no amount of military discipline can "make a man out of you", no matter what the common beliefs around this might be.

Second, and again in common with other trans people I've spoken to, Sophia admits to some difficulty with social interactions. Difficulties at home growing up, difficulties at school; those things would be enough to make any adult awkward and ill-at-ease socially. I know I love to be among friends, but among crowds of strangers I often hang back, unsure how to break in. (And I can so relate to that comment about free time? What free time?)

Third, I always find it interesting to talk to high-functioning trans women. It's clear that, to succeed in any field, a trans woman must overcome considerable obstacles: in order for her brilliance to shine, she needs to be accepted, and given an opportunity. A very few (that I can think of) have made it that far (Sophie Wilson and Jan Morris spring to mind). Those are people for whom the thought would be "this is a very successful individual, who happens to be a trans woman" rather than "this is a trans woman who happens to be successful".

Here is someone who has the potential to be extremely valuable and productive for any company which hires her. And yet, by her own admission, she is struggling to get employment (and she points out the same is true of many other trans people). I can well imagine that discrimination is common: "I'm afraid you're not what we're looking for right now" may be an acceptable, euphemistic version of "We're not sure that hiring a trans woman is OK with our management team right now".

So if you happen to live in Tibet, or Mongolia, and want a commercial space specialist who can speak your language, give Sophia a call.

But I am sure Sophia is right. There is probably an untapped reserve of trans talent out there: professional, qualified, experienced, hard-working, ready to step into the labour market (albeit in tights and heels, but who cares?). Employing those people is a win-win: a win for trans people, who will get better recognition, better self-esteem, better wages, better acceptance; and a win for the companies, who will get capable, loyal employees to work for them.

Perhaps those companies should have a re-think. After all, it's not exactly roc-- oh, wait a minute.

Do you want to learn how you can watch football live with the Satellite TV on PC software? Being a football fan myself, I never want miss any of the games played by my favorite teams. I started searching on the web for ways to watch live football, and that was when I was introduced to satellite TV PC technology. It is one of the most common ways that sports fans are using to watch live football on the custom in ear monitors cheap.

You see, too many ear monitors for singers get up on stage and simply try to deliver the "perfect performance". They are scared of making mistakes. They want to hit every single note perfectly.

To fully understand what a line check is, one must realize there are two audio systems involved with a live music performance. The large speakers hanging from each side of the the stage pointing towards the audience are operated by a "front of house" engineer, often called FOH. There are also smaller speakers on the stage pointed towards each band member called "monitors" or "wedges" that are operated by a monitor engineer. Larger acts often use in-ear monitors connected to belt packs that transmit their mix wirelessly through headphones. This eliminates the need for wedges on stage and gives the artist a much more controlled and isolated mix. These systems are becoming more common and affordable, but you will most likely only encounter traditional monitors in small clubs and theaters.

Alison Krauss and Union Station released a gold certified album in 2004. It was called "Lonely Runs Both Ways". Alison also performed a duet with Brad Paisley on his album "Mud on the Tires". The single "Whiskey Lullaby" was quite ranked in the top fifty of the Billboard Hot 100, and the top 5 of the Hot Country Songs. It also won the Country Music Association Award for Best Musical Event, and Best feedback music of the Year.

It might seem like I'm coming down on the KTV side of things but there is definitely something cool about getting up in front of random people and singing... sort of. But really, it's all the same anyway.

          Falcon 9 for Intelsat 35e tested; flown boosters return to ports   

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. — Hot off the heels of its weekend launch doubleheader, SpaceX performed a static fire test for another Falcon 9 rocket. Just three days from now, the rocket will deliver the Intelsat 35e telecommunications satellite into space.

          Google Earth, class is now in session   

So much of what students learn in the classroom—from social studies to history, science and literature—relates to a geographic place on Earth. Recently, we announced a new version of Google Earth, and since then, educators have been telling us what a valuable tool Google Earth is for their students. They use the “I’m feeling lucky” feature to inspire writing exercises, do research exercises with Knowledge Cards, and explore satellite imagery and cloud strata with their students. Now, to make it even easier for teachers to use Google Earth in the classroom, we’ve created a new “Education” category in the Voyager section, which includes new stories—complete with classroom activities—from National Geographic Society, PBS Education, HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue.

Edu-category600px.gif
Just click the new "Education" category on the Voyager homepage for new stories, complete with classroom activities for teachers

The National Geographic Society stories take students on adventures following explorers through the Middle East, India, and coral reefs. To supplement the experience, National Geographic Society created idea for activities that highlight a range of geographical concepts, such as interpreting land forms and comparing map projections.

With PBS Education, classrooms can go back in time and track the paths of famous explorers, from Lewis and Clark to the Vikings. As students follow along, they, in turn, become modern-day explorers.

HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue created Voyager stories more geared towards science and math. With HHMI Biointeractive, students join “Scientists at Work” as they investigate important problems, from endangered coral reefs to the Ebola outbreak. And Mission Blue’s story teaches students about the unique oceanographic conditions of Costa Rica thermal dome. Short videos and questions embedded in the stories will help guide students with their own scientific research.

Educators everywhere can find classroom activities (created by teachers, for teachers) at our new Google Earth Education website, and easily share locations and stories directly to Google Classroom. In addition, this week Google Earth will become an Additional Service for Google for Education users, which can be managed by IT administrators through the Google Admin console.

Google Earth was built to inspire curious minds to explore, learn and care about our vast, fragile planet. With these updates, we’re excited to make it easier for the next generation to see the world from a new perspective.

          Russia may launch the brightest ‘star’ in the sky   
Russia is set to launch potentially the brightest artificial object in the night sky, which could outshine everything except for the Moon, starting next month. Mayak, a Russian CubeSat (a type of miniaturized satellite) will be fitted with solar reflectors. According to experts, if the miniature satellite is launched, it could have an apparent magnitude of -10, New Atlas reports whereas the Moon ranks between -13 and -12. Celestial bodies are measured based on their brightness, with the brightest objects receiving the lowest scores. For comparison, the Sun has an apparent magnitude of -27. DOES DARK ENERGY EXIST? The CubeSat would be brighter than other objects in the sky, such as the International Space Station or Venus, which have apparent magnitude scores of -6 and -5, respectively. This could disrupt astronomers who rely on a dark night sky for their research. “We fight so hard for dark skies in and around our planet,” Nick Howes, an astronomer and former deputy director of the Kielder Observatory in Northumberland said in an interview with IFLScience. “To see this being potentially ruined by some ridiculous crowd-funded nonsense makes my heart simply despair.” NASA ORBITER SNAPS STUNNING 'NIAGARA FALLS OF MARS' PIC There are some differences of opinion about the potential brightness of the CubeSat, with IFLScience predicting a magnitude of about -3.6, which would still make it one of the brightest objects in the sky. Mayak would be visible in the U.S., as well as other parts of the world. The small satellite was designed by students from Moscow Polytechnic and weighs less than 8 pounds, composed of only a power source, control system and the aforementioned solar reflectors. NASA EYES CLOSE-UP MISSION TO URANUS, NEPTUNE The project has raised more than $30,000 on Russian crowd-funding site Boomstarter, similar to the U.S.'s Kickstarter. With the project, the students want to show that space can be accessible to small scientific teams for little cost. In addition, the students will also test an aerodynamic braking device at the end of the CubeSat's run, with it ultimately sent off into deep space. Mayak is set to launch on a Soyuz-2.1a rocket on July 14.

          Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG 2012   


It's been over a half-century since Mercedes-Benz unveiled its iconic 300SL Gullwing, and we just got a sneak peek at an AMG sports car we think might be bold enough to properly honor that landmark two-door. But don't expect the new SLS AMG to simply parrot the past; this curvaceous creation is the first vehicle designed and developed entirely by AMG (Mercedes-Benz's performance arm). As you might imagine, the SLS is just as high-tech as AMG's brawny, handbuilt powerplants.

The SLS AMG is available as a coupe or convertible soft-top. A naturally-aspirated 563-hp 6.2 liter V8 sends power to the rear wheels through an all-new rear-mounted AMG SPEEDSHIFT seven-speed automatic transaxle. Standard features include a sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels, Bi-Xenon high-intensity headlights, sport seats with leather trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and aluminum interior trim. Standard safety features include electronic stability control with traction control, eight airbags - including knee airbags for driver and passenger, ignition disable, panic and security alarms. Options include carbon fiber interior trim, AMG carbon ceramic brakes, AMG performance suspension and AMG carbon fiber exterior mirrors.

          teebag on "Time, Times, Half a Time" (33 and 3 Days, Division of Revelation's Seven Years)   

(Preface in Parenthesis)

Image Link1

Nostradamus Lost Plate 70, shows us Two Tetrahedrons, the one on the Bottom is the Pleiades.  Now the one on the top is our Earth's Sun.  This is "Nibiru/Star Wormwood" initial position and its current resting place.  In otherwords, we see "33 Degrees of Pleiades, for 33 Degrees of our Sun's Differential Pole", to mark the Seven Rays of Nibiru or the Seven Years of Revelation.  We've covered this conclusion in detail based on the following principle: (Nostradamus follows the Galactic Alignment and Eclipse of the Sun by our Moon, as absolute indicators of when God will activate the Tetrahedrons associated with Revelation, this conclusion is secondary, we've also covered this in detail in a previous discussion):

1. Spirit = Gospel's Law (Times/Time/Half)
2. Water = Space (Body of Jesus) (33 Degrees for 33 Days)
3. Blood = Earth (Armageddon) (Man Testifies of God's Discernment for his Mercy)

(this is only a preface, but I want to help you see past the mental illness the christian community is parading, by promoting their version of resolution, which does not include any form of judgement, so you need to see the larger association to what's happening first, and in brief)

1. 1290 of Daniel, 1260 of Revelation = Lord's Body (Two Witnesses)
2. 2300 of Daniel, 2000 of Swine into the Sea = Heavenly Temple Measurement
3. 1335 of Daniel, 353 Cubits of the Ark = Mercy Seat Measurement (Lamb Slain or Payment for Sin)
4. "Times/Time/Half" of Daniel, "Times/Time/Half" of Revelation = Abomination of Desolation (Cleansing the Temple of Dead Work/Dead Flesh)

(5. (no number 5, only some clarity), God classifies himself as "Seven" to denote his usage of energy, and Daniel Classifies this behavior as "70x7", God's Mercies are invalidated based on INRI, but he may use some measure of mercy to answer man, via a higgs boson..............There has always been only four contradictions, but there are many other lesser contradictions that only provide detail about the primary four in the gospel's law)

The difference between the figures of the Old Testament and the New Testament in Answering the Four Contradictions of the Gospel's Law, identifies with the Difference between God's Declarative Will (Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit), and God's Permissive Will (Lamb Slain before the Foundation of the Earth)............This difference Translates into the division of the Gospel's Law, that is illustrated with "Water" and with "Blood", so this translates into the timetable of and for the events of revelation.

(God's Law and the Antichrist, does not develop into becoming a Scapegoat for your sin, or placation to substitute the division of man by reason of your own generational sin, INRI with the Non-Christian Community is defined by your usage of force against me surrounding the truth about the Higgs Boson...........INRI with the Christian Community is defined by your usage of force surrounding the 70 Weeks of Daniel that is clearly defined as the 70 Sons of Man in the Gospel of Luke, you do not have a legal right to God's Mercy, based solely in your pleasures, generationally, and today of state and church funded Incest/Rape/Murder of my body, that is the law) (the Effects of Joseph the Blessings and the Sign of Divorce, can take the Form of the Higgs Boson, taking the appearance of a man-man-gospel to challenge your walk of faith in the elimination of Genetic Dan, in order to produce a Sign of Divorce ... that is one likely outcome, probably the most likely) (End of Preface in Parenthesis)

"Times, Time, Half a Time" (Several Answers, One Law)

Image Enlarger

DANIEL 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

70 Weeks, 62 and 69 Weeks, 1 Week (Based on the Genealogy of Luke's 70 Angels and God's Expenditure of Energy) (14 Dynasties of Atlantis for 70, 14 Dynasties in Egypt of Joseph for 430 Years, then you have Babylon's 14 Dynasties or 69 weeks, then you have Revelation's Seven Years that is the last period of 14 Dynasties)

DANIEL 9:2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

70 Years, "70 x 7" Years, 42 Months ... God marks the last 42 Months that leads into the 7 Years, in this instance, Flight 370 was used as the Marker.

DANIEL 12:11 And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

1290 Days, 43x62, 1335 Days ... (1335x2/62) ... Time is given a value of 43 Months, and this equals the Amount of Energy God expends in 62 Weeks, and this amount of energy is equivalent to 1335 Days.  God is expressing his usage of energy on a much larger scale, in dealing with man, in three levels: for Three Covenants, so to simplify this position:

42 Months (1260 Days) and 30 Days, 7th to 8th Day Sabbath, for 153 Days (43 or 4+3 = 7 and 62 or 6+2 =8)

Flight 370 for 42 Months + 33 Days to begin 7 Years concluding the 7th Cycle, then the 8th Cycle is 153 Days ......... 4 Billion then 300,000,000 Years, then another cycle of 430,000 Years, and 62,000 Years, and this ended around 13,000 Years Ago.  God energy measured in time is linear, but God's energy measured in the Gospel, his total reaction is not linear, because that is true, what God does for 42 Months and 30 Days in Revelation, can be seen as 1290 and 62 Weeks in the Old Testament, and this can also be seen as a measurement of the Ark that brought Noah, and this will be turncoated into Star Wormwood for 153 Days.  "1290 Days, 43x62, 1335" is the Gospel's Answer and it is not supposed to make sense at face value, you must read this in terms of god's energy or through linear time

REVELATION 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
REVELATION 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

7 Years, 4 + 3 (42 Months + 33 Days), 3 Days ... 7 Years is the Time of Revelation.  Half of 7 Years = 42 Months.  Therefore when God says "3 Days and a Half", God is referring to a literal 3 Days and a literal 42 Months.

1. Half = 33 Days (Month of Healing)
2. Half = 3 Days (Three Days of Darkness)
3. Half = 42 Months (Two Witnesses Ministering)
4. Half = 42 Months (Two Witnesses Slain)

God calls "3 Days a Half", so Half of What? Take the Number 33 and remove one of the "3", then you have a half or the Number "3".  So God has 7 Years and half of that is 42 and 42, and God has 33 and Half of that Number is 3.

When God kills me for 33 Days from 8/21 to 9/23, he will also justify his gospel's law against INRI, that means, when God decides not to euthanize humanity, he will kill the enemies of my Testimony, that means North Korea, United Kingdom and the USA, will be killed by degree, and perhaps some other places....................You will have 33 Days to kill Genetic Dan's Population Cluster, until God acts on his decision, until you die.

42 Months from Flight 370, I will be killed for 33 Days, "Three Days and a Half of Seven".  After that is finished, you will likely have to kill Genetic Dan to reveal the Sign of Divorce, but I should have the Black Knight Satellite, I will use that to educate the White Populations Globally, I will use public parks or remote areas, and I will use genetic filters in a radius within the areas of my choosing as we've discussed.  There may even be an off world expedition after things go underway, God places his mercies in my power to illustrate his will, so that is what I will do.  Love and Blessings. (Nightly Walk Tonight, and 10 Hour Walk Tomorrow, to keep the Ethnic People Tamed, based on this level of truth).
