See Jože Plečnik's Unrealized "Cathedral of Freedom" Animated For The Very First Time    

Jože Plečnik is often described as Slovenia's greatest architect despite his passing over seven decades ago. The trace of his hand, which was trained in Vienna under Otto Wagner, can be seen across the country – and especially so in Ljubljana. Although Plečnik is often most keenly remembered for his restorative work and renovation of Prague Castle in the 1920s, the impact he left on the Slovenian capital is unmistakable.

          Debate: Slovenia's partial victory in row with Croatia   
In the border dispute between Slovenia and Croatia an international arbitration tribunal in The Hague has ruled that much of an area of contested waters in the Bay of Piran on the Adriatic coast belongs to Slovenia. Under the ruling Croatia in return profits from certain border corrections and gains a mountain peak. Zagreb, however, refuses to accept the ruling. What will be the consequences?

          Croatia rejects ruling in maritime dispute with Slovenia   
Croatia has rejected a ruling by an international arbitration court that hands victory to Slovenia in a long-running maritime dispute. In a row that centres on the Bay of Piran, judges have granted Slovenia unhindered access to international waters in the Adriatic Sea with a 10-nautical mile corridor. The countries have argued over a stretch of their sea and land border since independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991. Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar told a news conference: "The ruling of the arbitration court is final and legally binding for both countries. For Slovenia and for Croatia. "The historic moment has arrived for Slovenia. The decision must be respected." Slovenia wants to now look at implementation of the decision, even though it says not all expectations have been met. But Croatia walked out of the arbitration talks in 2015 and says it is not obliged to obide by the ruling. Croatia's Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said: "The first and most important message from Croatian government regarding the arbitration decision is that we do not consider ourselves obliged by this ruling, we are not obliged to abide the ruling at all, and we will not apply the contents of this ruling." "For us this arbitration has no legal value. But we stand ready to discuss this border issue with Slovenia. We don't expect them to make any unilateral moves in light of this ruling." Both countries agreed to arbitration in 2009, in a deal that also saw Slovenia drops its opposition to Croatia joining the European Union.

Zaradi Aktualnosti vsebine in bližnjega dogodka tokrat objavljamo gostujoči intervju v angleškem jeziku. Bil je narejen za Aktualno 2.0 s strani naše kolegice Andreje Cepuš. Predstavljamo vam izjemen koncept nove dobe, ki se kot virtualni virus širi iz Afrike na vse kontinente in je v mnogih državah že dobil tudi oprijemljive strukture. V razmislek in vpogled v nove možnosti!

Pozdrav, Violeta



Michael Tellinger is a scientist, explorer and internationally acclaimed author of numerous books, who has become an authority on the vanished civilisations of southern Africa and the origins of humankind. His research and discoveries of an advanced vanished civilisation in South Africa includes a diverse field of research and touches on human origins, spirituality, science & consciousness.

Michael’s work touches critical issues around the subject of Unity Consciousness. “The more we push the boundaries of science, the more we come to understand the universal mind – the creative source of all things in the multiverse and beyond. It seems that the knowledge we gain from quantum physics and space-time studies, brings us closer to understanding the true nature of reality, the meaning of the universe and our place in it as conscious beings.” He believes that quantum physics is a gift from the divine creator to allow humanity to find its way back to source – back to unity – from a deeply divided and manipulated species – not only on Earth but in the entire universe.

Tellinger presents a model for a new social structure called CONTRIBUTIONISM – A World Without Money – based on the African philosophy of UBUNTU and proposes how we should move from a money-driven society to a society driven by people, their talents and their passion for life. Where everyone contributes their natural talents or acquired skills to the greatest benefit of all in their community – and money has no meaning.

He is also the founder of the UBUNTU LIBERATION MOVEMENT and the political party called UBUNTU Party, in South Africa – which contested the national elections in SA on the 7th May 2014.

          Sveže o odprtem inoviranju   
Želja po razvoju in potreba po neprestanem prilagajanju dinamičnim življenjskim razmeram vodi posameznike in podjetja v nove oblike organiziranja, povezovanja in (so)ustvarjanja. Odprto inoviranje (ang. Open Innovation) je ena izmed tovrstnih oblik generiranja (dodane) vrednosti. Koncept je bil prvič celostno predstavljen leta 2003, ko je prof. Henry Chesbrough objavil svojo knjigo Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology. Zaradi svoje uporabnosti je koncept vse bolj navzoč v poslovnem svetu, zanimiv pa postaja tudi v znanstvenih krogih, ki s sistematičnimi raziskavami izpopolnjujejo vrzeli v razumevanju obnašanja in delovanja odprtih inovacij ter botrujejo k nastajanju njenih novih pojavnih oblik.

Vibacom že od leta 2005 aktivno soustvarja uvajanje in razvoj modelov odprtega inoviranja v slovenskem prostoru. Da bi prišli do čim bolj prodornih svežih znanj na tem področju, smo pred štirimi leti vstopili v državni program »Mladi raziskovalci iz gospodarstva«, ki ga je objavila Javna agencija Republike Slovenije za spodbujanje podjetništva, inovativnosti, razvoja, investicij in turizma. Podprli smo pripravo doktorske disertacije Kaje Rangus z naslovom »Proclivity for open innovation: construct development, determinants and outcomes«. Ponosni smo na njeno uspešno razvojno pot, ki bo dosegla pomemben mejnik z zagovorom disertacije v juliju 2014. Rezultate prve raziskave je predstavila na mednarodni znanstveni konferenci Academy of Management 2013, rezultate druge in tretje raziskave pa bo predstavila v prihajajočih tednih na mednarodnih znanstvenih konferencah IAMOT 2014 in R&D management 2014 in s tem še dodatno okrepila slovensko navzočnost v globalni zakladnici znanja. To je njena zgodba.

V: Kako bi opredelila koncept odprtega inoviranja?
Gre za nov način razvijanja proizvodov in storitev, pri katerem podjetja poleg znanja in idej zaposlenih vključujejo tudi zunanje partnerje: od kupcev/uporabnikov, dobaviteljev, fakultet, laboratorijev, posameznikov (razvijalcev in inventorjev) do podjetij, ki se ukvarjajo z drugimi dejavnostmi kot oni, in celo
Odprto inoviranje je vključevanje zunanjih partnerjev v proces inoviranja: od kupcev/uporabnikov, dobaviteljev, fakultet, laboratorijev, posameznikov (razvijalcev in inventorjev) do podjetij, ki se ukvarjajo z drugimi dejavnostmi kot oni, in celo konkurentov.
konkurentov. Z odprtim inoviranjem se tako podjetju odprejo številne nove oblike sodelovanja, ki zagotavljajo navzočnost ideje za nove in izboljšane proizvode, storitve in rešitve, kot tudi možnosti za vstop na nove trge. Prof. Chesbrough je koncept predstavil v obliki »tunela« (slika 1).

Slika 1: Koncept odprtega inoviranja
Vir: Rangus, 2010 (Povzeto po: H. Chesbrough (2003). Open Innovation:
The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology)

Iz slike je razvidno, da lahko ideje o novem ali izboljšanem proizvodu/storitvi/rešitvi prihajajo tako skozi notranje tehnološke in netehnološke baze kot tudi od zunaj, v kateri koli fazi inovacijskega razvoja. Podjetje lahko: 1) k sodelovanju povabi zunanje partnerje že v začetni fazi pridobivanja idej, ali pa 2) v fazi razvoja prepozna potrebo po dodatni komponenti (na nivoju znanja, polizdelka ali končnega proizvoda), ki jo je ceneje in hitreje kupiti ali licencirati od zunanjega partnerja. Lahko se tudi zgodi, da podjetje v fazi razvoja ustvari stranski proizvod, ki ni primeren za njegovo osrednjo dejavnost, zato se lahko odloči in to komponento proda ali odda (v obliki licenčnine) drugemu podjetju v najem. Vse pogostejši rezultat odprtih inovacij, ki je posledica potrebe po čim hitrejšem vstopu na obstoječe ali nove trge, so nova partnerstva na nivoju (blagovne) znamke ali skupnega novega podjetja.

V: Torej pri konceptu odprtega inoviranja ne gre le za prejemanje idej in znanja od zunaj, ampak za vzajemno prelivanje/deljenje znanja?
Vsekakor. Koncept se deli na dva dela: prvi del odprtega inoviranja je osredotočen na pridobivanje novega znanja in na ideje od zunaj. Drugi del odprtega inoviranja pa je deljenje znanja in idej podjetja navzven. Ključno je, da podjetje najde pravo ravnotežje med tem, katere ideje, znanje in tehnologijo je smiselno pridobiti od zunaj in do katere mere razkriti svoja znanja navzven. Bistveno je, da se podjetje osredotoči na svoje ključne sposobnosti, medtem ko je smiselno vse obstranske dejavnosti in proizvode/storitve razviti z zunanjimi partnerji. Pri tem so ključni kriteriji za odločanje cenejša rešitev, hitrejši vstop na trg ter potencialno vstop na nove trge.

Slika 2: Vibacom tim, od leve proti desni
(Violeta , Kaja, Barbara)
Vir: Vibacom
V: Kako bi strnila prednosti odprtega inoviranja?
Glavna prednost je pridobitev večjega števila novih idej, predvsem tržno zanimivih, saj le-te prihajajo tudi od končnih uporabnikov; dostop do znanja in tehnologij, ki primanjkujejo v podjetju, krajši čas do vstopa na trg, vstop na nove trge ter nižji stroški razvoja končnega proizvoda.

V: Obstajajo tudi kakšne pomanjkljivosti tega koncepta?
Na žalost ima vsaka pozitivna stvar tudi kakšno pomanjkljivost. Pri odprtem inoviranju je ta pogosto vezana na »zaprtost zaposlenih« za sodelovanje z zunanjimi partnerji, tako imenovani  »Not-Invented-Here sindrom«, ki pravi, da razvijalci v podjetju ne verjamejo v tehnologijo/znanja/rešitve, ki niso razviti znotraj podjetja. Poleg tega so zaposleni vajeni rutinskega dela in se težko privadijo na novi način podajanja idej in pobud, novih modelov razvoja ideje in novih miselnih vzorcev. Pri partnerskih odnosih pa nastajajo največji problemi pri opredelitvi pogodbenih obveznosti in lastnine končnega proizvoda/storitve.

V: Ali obstajajo kakšni konkretni načini izvedbe odprtega inoviranja?
Aktivnosti, povezanih z odprtim inoviranjem, je kar nekaj ... na primer: podjetje lahko pridobi zunanje znanje/ideje na podlagi:
•    sodelovanja (mreženja) z različnimi zunanjimi partnerji,
•    najemanja storitev raziskav in razvoja na fakultetah, v laboratorijih,
•    sodelovanja s kupci/z uporabniki,
•    so-investiranja v nova (start-up; spin-off) podjetja z drugimi partnerji,
•    nakupa/najema tehnologije in znanja od zunaj.
Svoje notranje potenciale pa lahko podjetje razvija in deli z zunanjim okoljem preko:
•    ustanavljanja novih podjetij (ang. venturing),
•    prodaje/oddaje svoje tehnologije in znanja navzven,
•    vključevanja vseh zaposlenih v podajanje idej in razvoj novih proizvodov/storitev.

V: Ali lahko za lažjo predstavo podaš kakšne primere iz prakse?
Najbolj razširjena oblika oz. način odprtega inoviranja je vključevanje uporabnikov v razvoj novih proizvodov/storitev. Pogosto podjetja od uporabnikov pridobivajo ideje o novih in izboljšanih proizvodih/storitvah na »klasičen način«, npr. z izpolnjevanjem lističev v trgovinah, z oddajo idej preko specifičnih obrazcev na spletni strani ipd. Vse več podjetij pa je začelo ustvarjati posebne platforme oz. spletne skupnosti za uporabnike, kjer lahko uporabniki podajajo svoje ideje o novih/izboljšanih proizvodih/storitvah, med seboj te ideje komentirajo, jih všečkajo in ocenjujejo. Tako platformo že vrsto let vzdržuje podjetje Dell (Dell Idea Storm) in podjetje Starbucks (my Starbucks Idea). Ali pa gredo celo korak dlje in omogočijo razvoj personaliziranega proizvoda – kot npr. NikeID in miAdidas ter Lego (preko Lego Create and Share).

Za tehnološko zahtevnejše projekte obstajajo platforme, ki omogočajo izmenjavo tehnologij ter iskanje primernega partnerja za razvoj določene tehnologije (tako imenovani Open innovation Marketplaces), kot so npr. Nine Sigma, InnoCentive, Yet2, itd.

V: V svoji doktorski raziskavi proučuješ absorpcijsko sposobnost podjetij. Jo lahko malo bolje predstaviš?
Absorpcijska sposobnost predstavlja sposobnost podjetja, da vsrkava (absorbira) informacije od zunaj. Gre za zmožnost zaznavanja, preoblikovanja ter umeščanja informacij iz okolja v poslovanje podjetja. Seveda je absorpcijska sposobnost podjetja v veliki meri odvisna od absorpcijske sposobnosti posameznikov oz. zaposlenih v podjetju, njihove sposobnosti zaznavanja okolja ter prenosa informacij iz okolja v notranjost podjetja.

»Absorpcijska sposobnost je zmožnost zaznavanja, preoblikovanja ter umeščanja informacij iz okolja v poslovanje podjetja.« 
V: Kaj pa so bili ključni elementi v doktorski disertaciji?
V prvem poglavju doktorske disertacije sem se posvetila razvoju mere za merjenje odprtega inoviranja podjetij. Glavni izziv, vezan na raziskovanje omenjenega koncepta, je ravno ta, da so obstoječe znanstvene raziskave večinoma vezane na opredelitev koncepta ter predstavitev študij primerov velikih multinacionalk, ki so odprto inoviranje uspešno vpeljale v svoje poslovanje. Jaz pa sem želela na velikem vzorcu podjetij preveriti, ali koncept res pozitivno vpliva na inovativnost podjetja. V ta namen sem razvila mero oz. orodje, ki meri nagnjenost podjetja k odprtemu inoviranju ter se navezuje na vse zgoraj omenjene aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja. Mera je z znanstvenega vidika zanimiva, saj omogoča bolj poglobljeno proučevanje koncepta – v smislu raziskovanja vpliva in razmerja odprtega inoviranja z drugimi organizacijskimi korelati na velikih vzorcih. S praktičnega vidika je mera zanimiva, saj opisuje številne različne načine izvajanja posamezne dimenzije odprtega inoviranja. Mera je bila razvita na vzorcu več kot 300 podjetij iz Slovenije ter dodatno testirana na vzorcu 100 podjetij iz Italije.

V: Torej je bilo drugo poglavje namenjeno proučevanju vpliva odprtega inoviranja?
Ja. V drugem poglavju sem na podlagi strukturnega modeliranja preverila model povezav med odprtim inoviranjem, absorpcijsko sposobnostjo in inovativnostjo podjetja. Rezultati raziskave na novem vzorcu 450 podjetij iz Slovenije so potrdili teoretično zasnovan model, v katerem absorpcijska sposobnost igra vlogo mediatorja v razmerju med odprtim inoviranjem in inovativnostjo podjetja. To pomeni, da odprto inoviranje in absorpcijska sposobnost pozitivno neposredno vplivata na inovativnost podjetja, odprto inoviranje pozitivno neposredno vpliva na absorpcijsko sposobnost ter preko absorpcijske sposobnosti še na inovativnost podjetja. Raziskava je pokazala, da je skupni učinek odprtega inoviranja ter absorpcijske sposobnosti podjetja na inovativnost podjetja večji kot posamezna učinka, ter s tem nakazala moč sovplivanja različnih organizacijskih sposobnosti.
Raziskava je pokazala, da vse dimenzije oz. aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja pozitivno vplivajo na inovativnost podjetja, pri čemer pa ima najmočnejši vpliv vključevanje zaposlenih. Tako ključno vlogo pri implementaciji odprtega inoviranja še vedno igra notranja organiziranost podjetja in človeški faktor. Predvsem odprta miselnost vodij. 
V: Kaj pa so bile ključne ugotovitve tretje raziskave?
V tretji raziskavi sem na vzorcu skoraj 700 podjetij iz Slovenije, Italije in Belgije proučila vpliv posamezne dimenzije odprtega inoviranja na inovativnost podjetja ter podala nekaj korakov za uspešno implementacijo le-tega. Raziskava je pokazala, da vse dimenzije oz. aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja pozitivno vplivajo na inovativnost podjetja, pri čemer pa ima najmočnejši vpliv vključevanje zaposlenih. Tako ključno vlogo pri implementaciji odprtega inoviranja še vedno igra notranja organiziranost podjetja in človeški faktor, predvsem odprta miselnost vodij, ki se odločijo za ta način inoviranja, kot tudi zaposlenih, ki se zavedajo pomena izmenjave informacij in sodelovanja tako s sodelavci kot tudi zunanjimi partnerji. Glede na izvajanje dimenzij odprtega inoviranja sem podjetja na podlagi analize skupin (ang. cluster analysis) razvrstila v štiri skupine. Identificirane skupine sem poimenovala: odprti inovatorji (aktivno izvajajo vse aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja); podjetja za inženiring velikih sistemov (aktivno izvajajo vse aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja razen najemanja storitev raziskav in razvoja v fakultetah in laboratorijih); najemniki raziskav in razvoja (zelo močno izvajajo aktivnost najemanja storitev raziskav in razvoja na fakultetah in v laboratorijih), podjetja, usmerjena h kupcem (v inovacijski proces aktivno vključujejo le kupce). Raziskava je pokazala, da je v primerjavi z ostalimi tremi skupinami najbolj inovativna skupina odprtih inovatorjev.

V: Še tvoje zadnje sporočilo podjetjem …
Raziskave, izvedene v okviru doktorske disertacije, jasno prikažejo pozitivne učinke odprtega inoviranja. Kljub temu pa je razumljivo, da za vsako podjetje niso ustrezne vse aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja. Tako menim, da je ključno, da podjetje samo pri sebi ugotovi, katere aktivnosti so zanj najbolj primerne in jih je zmožno implementirati brez večjih naporov in dodatnih stroškov. Bolj kot težnja po implementaciji vseh aktivnosti odprtega inoviranja se mi zdita pomembna odprta miselnost vodij in zaposlenih ter zavedanje, kaj lahko pridobimo s sodelovanjem, z deljenjem in izmenjavo. Odprt način delovanja bo potem prišel sam po sebi.

Hvala Kaji za novo dimenzijo razumevanja obnašanja inovativnosti v (poslovnih) sistemih. Tudi z njeno pomočjo bomo spoznanja o odprtem inoviranju prelivali v novo vrednost v malih, srednjih in velikih podjetjih kot tudi na nivo lokalnih skupnosti, civilne družbe in osebnega razvoja. Naj bodo multiplikativni učinki vidni tudi v vašem okolju.

          Alkimija vodstva in organizacije   
Inovacije so v sodobnem svetu spoznane kot ključno sredstvo za ustvarjanje novih vrednosti. Njihove značilnosti danes prispevajo k razvoju globalne ekonomije. Še več, zaradi značilnosti lastnih inovativnosti, vstopamo v nove dimenzije gospodarskih in družbenih odnosov, ki kažejo na nove možnosti sodelovanja in sobivanja na tem planetu.
Pojmovanje inovativnosti je ponudilo veliko priložnosti za uspešen razvoj vseh členov sodobne družbe. Toda, da ga lahko uspešno izkoristimo, potrebujemo dinamične, raznovrstne sisteme z nehierarhičnimi in horizontalnimi strukturami.

Vir: Dirk Oellibrandt
Inovacije nam omogočijo, da raznovrstne vidike in večplastne zmožnosti izražamo v vedno znova novih oblikah izdelkov, uslug in rešitev, ki ustvarjajo vrednost in vzpodbujajo trajnostni ter uspešni razvoj družb. Vendar smo za njihovo uporabo in aplikativnost v praksi, odgovorni ljudje z razumevanjem posledic dejanj, ki te novosti manifestirajo v naše življenje. V obratnem primeru lahko te iste novosti enako učinkovito povzročijo uničenje in trpljenje.

V naprednih, inovacijsko usmerjenih družbah vedno bolj spoznavamo, da voditelji v organizacijah in delovnih skupinah znova igrajo sicer pomembno, vendar povsem drugačno vlogo kot v preteklosti. Namesto hierarhizirane avtoritete, ki vse ve najbolje in v delovni skupini ali organizaciji odločitve sprejema v imenu vseh, uspešni sodobni voditelji vidijo svojo vlogo:

•    v oblikovanju ustreznih pogojev, ki ljudem omogočijo, da lahko uspešno delujejo;
•    v prepoznavanju zmožnosti in osebne zavzetosti vsakega posameznika;
•    v ustvarjanju raznovrstnih zvez med sodelavci, ki omogočijo, da se učinkovito in dejavno odzovejo na potrebe posameznih skupnosti.

Voditelji se aktivno priključijo ustvarjanju organizacijskih, družbenih in poslovnih inovacij. S tem navdihujejo in nudijo prostor ljudem, ki si upajo seči onstran utečenih meja.

Toda kako in kje lahko spoznamo in razvijemo tovrstne vodstvene sposobnosti? Dirk Oellibrandt, naš današnji gost, nas vabi in predlaga, da o njih razmišljamo v luči alkimije.

Sodobno usmerjenim voditeljem pritrjuje, da v poslovnem svetu vedno bolj potrebujemo voditelje, ki so sposobni gledati, razmišljati, čutiti, se sporazumevati in voditi na način, ki se razlikuje od utečenih pristopov. Vendar ne glede na to le poredkoma naletimo na metode, ki so res drugačne in hkrati praktično koristne.

Več o Dirk-u
Alkimija se morda sliši kot „pravljica v oblakih“, ki se ji je treba v poslovnem svetu na daleč izogniti. Toda alkimija preprosto pomeni polno izrabiti obstoječe možnosti in na pravi način uskladiti vse nujno potrebne vsebine, da dobimo želeno kakovostno višjo stvaritev (npr. zlato)

Takšno celovito sposobnost najlažje ustvarimo, ko združimo in uskladimo delovanje vseh štirih človeških prvin (telesnih, čustvenih, umskih in duhovnih). Voditelj, ki obvlada te štiri potenciale vodenja, na direktorskem položaju deluje prominentno in pomeni magnet za nove poslovne priložnosti.


Izvirnost pristopa programa „Življenjski projekti“ (Life Projects) omogoči, da lahko dve od teh domen, ki jih drugače le redko upoštevamo pri razpravi – namreč fizično in duhovno dimenzijo, praktično in donosno izkoristimo tako v organizaciji kakor pri uvajanju. To dokazujejo naše izkušnje v firmah Microsoft, Nacional Police Holland in mnogih drugih.

Načelo “Organizmacije” v vaši organizaciji uporablja princip delovanja živih organizmov. Vaše delovanje vam pomaga preobraziti iz napol mrtvega in dolgočasnega poslovanja v živo organizacijo. Pokaže, kako v vašo delovno skupino in podjetje spet pripeljati nazaj pravo naravo. 

Vabilo na „Delavnico o alkimiji vodenja in organizacije“:
Ste voditelj oziroma strokovnjak, ki bi rad prebudil speče moči v sebi, v vaši delovni skupini, v organizaciji ali pri vaših strankah? Naučite se, kako izdelati zlato. Obudite in prinesite na površje najboljše v sebi ali v drugih okoli sebe. Naravni način kako učinkovito zgraditi trajnostno poslovnost in družbo višje kvalitete.

Kje & kdaj & kaj:
1.    Celodnevni program v nedeljo, 6. aprila, 2014 v Ljubljani
2.    Triurni pregledni program v ponedeljek, 7. aprila, 2014 v Ljubljani
Dva voditelja, ki sta izvajala naš program, sta jasno izjavila: “Spet sem dobil nazaj svoje življenje.”

V tovrstnem pristopu se življenje in vodenje prepleteta. To omogoči, da postanete navdih tudi za svojo okolico, saj jo boste vzpodbujali s trdnejšimi vrednotami, modrostjo, ustvarjalnostjo in razumom.

Svoje vodstvene dejavnosti boste opravljali z notranjo lahkoto. Globlje kvalitete in sposobnosti bodo počasi izplavale na površje. Že prej osvojene umske in čustvene sposobnosti seveda pomenijo dodano vrednost temu stanju.
Vir: Dirk Oellibrandt

Čas je, da se ozremo navznoter, se pridružimo velikemu podjetju/materi (naravi) in se naučimo, kako razpoložljive moči presojati na podlagi notranjih potencialov naše delovne skupine ali organizacije. Tako se bo prikazal svet neskončnih možnosti, v katerem se bosta medsebojno zlila tako svetovni uspeh kakor osebno zadovoljstvo.

Hvala Dirk, za to globoko in tako človeško sporočilo. Da, vodenje je scela povezano z ljudmi, ljudmi in spet ljudmi. Tako preprosto, a tako pogosto pozabljeno.

              Miss Perú Mundo 2006 en competencia de ropa de baño   

    (RPP Noticias)

    Las aspirantes al cetro de Miss Mundo que este año se celebra en Polonia participaron en una competencia para elegir el Mejor Cuerpo del concurso de belleza, título que ganó la venezolana Alexandra Federica Guzmán Diamante. La elección se realizó en el Hotel Normadski en el ciudad de Gdynia, a las orillas del Mar Báltico.

    Aunque Miss Perú Mundo 2006 Silvia Cornejo causó buena impresión durante su desfile, no logró clasificar entre las 20 mejores y esculturales figuras. Las seleccionadas en la edición 56 de este certamen fueron: Angola, Canadá, Colombia, República Checa, India, Irlanda, Italia, Nigeria Panamá, Filipinas, Polonia, Puerto Rico, Rumania, Escocia, Singapur, Eslovenia, España, Suecia y Venezuela.
    Como ganadora Miss Venezuela clasifica directamente como una de las 16 semifinalistas que disputaran el titulo de Miss Mundo 2006, que se realizará en la sala Krongresowa del Palacio de la Cultura y Ciencia de la ciudad de Varsovia el día 30 de setiembre

    Federica es una experimentada modelo venezolana y conductora de un programa de televisión y fue electa de emergencia por la organización Miss Venezuela en un pequeño evento donde sólo compitieron seis beldades.

    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)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

              Comment on Squirrels going nuts by Go! Go! Omiya Ardija (@GoGoOmiyaArdija)   
    Was firing the coach the right call for Omiya? Now there's a question. As you say here, Sean, there are all sorts of stories circulating about Zdenko Verdenik and a breakdown in his relationship with the players, arguments with Tsutomu Ogura, arguments about money, even suggestions that the coaching staff as a whole had refused to work with him. There are at least two sides to every story, of course, and as I understand it Verdenik hasn't so far spoken to the Slovenian press about any of this. But in an attempt to get to grips with the idea of why a previously struggling team like Omiya would sack their coach under these apparently incredible circumstances, you have to look at the guy who calls the shots -- Ardija president Shigeru Suzuki. Some have written about recent events at NACK5 evidently keen to portray it as the latest bizarre decision by Omiya personnel ill-equipped for the challenges of working in high-level professional sport. I don't think that's fair to Suzuki. Bearing in mind that he was appointed as part of the fallout from Ardija's absurdly stupid and embarrassing crowd-fixing scandal, Suzuki can't be held responsible for, nor should he be tainted by, the actions of his predecessors. I think his track record since that appointment is basically good. Since becoming president he's brought in better people to the club office and team management. His communication with the fans is better. While I don't suggest that Suzuki's solely responsible for this, he's overseen the move away from the awful old NTT training ground at Shiki to the shiny new purpose-built facility in Omiya. These are all significant improvements. He's trigger happy with the coach, though, right? Actually, no. Many Squirrels fans would say that Suzuki was in fact over-cautious when it came to getting rid of the guy before Verdenik: the confusingly-named Jun Suzuki had failed to achieve the stated points target for the 2011 season, winning only two home league games along the way and being knocked out of the Emperor's Cup by Fukuoka University. He wasn't shown the door until May 2012, with Omiya one place above the relegation zone -- not the actions of a president who rushes to fire the coach at the first sign of trouble. In other words, in the absence of any other information, there's no obvious reason to think that Suzuki is someone who would fire Verdenik without believing that, however extraordinary it might appear from the outside, it was nevertheless the best thing to do. Whatever the uncertainties of that whole situation, I'm 100% sure Ljubijankic is right about Omiya's downturn in form having its roots in the mentality of the team. I think this matters more than formation, tactics and, notwithstanding a few key performers, the selection or otherwise of individual players. As Zlatan implies, the mental aspect of the game seems to be for some reason especially important in Japan: think of the apparent collapse and relegation of fundamentally competent teams like Sanfrecce Hiroshima in 2007, Kashiwa Reysol in 2009 and Gamba Osaka last year. Sanfrecce and Reysol, of course, were able to keep the majority of their squads, recover their confidence in J2 and come back to the top division so much the stronger; Gamba look well placed to follow suit. The manifestation of this phenomenon at Omiya was such that in the early part of the current season a lineup featuring, for example, a central midfield of Takuya Aoki and Shin Kanazawa was tearing it up at the top of the league. Not to pick on those two players, but before autumn 2012 that was a combination which would have been, and yes I am a fan, a byword for J1 mediocrity. From that low point, over the final third of last season Aoki and Kanazawa were transformed instead into a dynamic force at the heart of the Omiya team, with energy, mobility and no little skill. Clearly the bubble of Omiya's invincibility has burst into a million tiny Ardy and Miya-shaped pieces. The challenge for Ogura now is to get the squad into a state of mind where they go into games thinking not much has changed -- that having been a good team before, they can become one again. If that happens at all, it'll take time. It was always a nonsense for Ardija fans to think that, just because Verdenik had gone, the team could immediately switch back to their former selves and win those matches against Sagan Tosu and Kashiwa. Finishing this year in the top four or five would in its own way be as miraculous as those beautiful, fleeting moments in spring when the Squirrels stood at the top of the J-League, wa was on the face of it being maintained and all seemed right with the world.

              When disaster strikes, should China do more?   

    Sixty-two Chinese rescuers and six sniffer dogs were the first global team on the ground in Nepal the day after a massive earthquake devastated the country just over a year ago.

    The quick deployment was a sign of China’s growing role in emergencies, but critics say its humanitarian contributions are still paltry compared to its economic and diplomatic clout. With the world's second-largest economy and largest standing army, China's contributions do not match official pronouncements about its growing international role.

    “We are trying to play a bigger role in the existing international order,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at a press conference in March. 

    “The world is so big and faces so many problems; the international community wishes to hear China's voices and see China's solutions, and China cannot be absent,” he told reporters.

    But the figures belie such statements.

    China contributed only $54 million in humanitarian aid in 2014, according to Development Initiatives, which analysed data from sources including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the UN, and the International Monetary Fund. In contrast, the United States contributed $5.9 billion, while Britain gave $2.3 billion, and Saudi Arabia $755 million. 

    The UN’s Financial Tracking Service, which documents global humanitarian aid flows, shows that China’s contribution fell in 2015 to a mere $37 million.

    (The above figures are for humanitarian aid only, and do not include grants and loans aimed at development goals.)

    Even China’s own statistics underscore the relatively low importance it places on foreign aid.

    According to a 2014 white paper on foreign aid – including development as well as humanitarian funding – China’s average ratio of aid budget to gross national income was about 0.07 percent in the period from 2010 to 2012. 

    That's much lower than the average 0.3 percent given annually by the 29 countries making up the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee, which include the Group of 7 advanced economies as well as smaller countries including Slovenia, Greece, and the Czech Republic.

    In a recent commentary, the UK-based Overseas Development Institute said: “With greater power comes greater responsibility and China should step up its contributions to international humanitarian assistance to an amount at least remotely worthy of its GDP.”

    The Ministry of Commerce, which administers Beijing’s humanitarian aid, has not responded to IRIN’s requests for comment and further information.

    Politically motivated?

    Observers have also noted that China’s aid often seems motivated at least in part by political goals.

    “In terms of commitments overseas, it seems highly tactical,” said Kerry Brown, professor of Chinese studies and director of the Lau China Institute at King's College, London.

    He cited South Sudan, which gained independence in 2011 from Sudan, a long-time Chinese ally. China suddenly found itself in the awkward position of having invested heavily in oilfields that were now part of an independent South Sudan, while having provided support to the Khartoum government throughout the war, including supplying weapons.

    China sent peacekeepers to join the UN mission in South Sudan, and contributed other humanitarian aid.

    “We also saw this in Costa Rica in 2007 when China agreed to buy $300 million in bonds and give $130 million in aid to secure Costa Rica’s diplomatic recognition of Beijing instead of Taipei,” Brown said.

    Learning curve

    Some experts say it will take time for China to build up its humanitarian activities overseas. But as one of the most natural disaster-stricken countries in the world, China has the potential to contribute its considerable experience to disaster relief. 

    For example, when the worst earthquake in 30 years struck southwestern Sichuan Province in 2008, international agencies played only a small role and China’s response was widely praised. The government immediately launched a massive effort, which included deploying troops to rescue people buried in rubble, deliver aid and organise evacuations.

    But critics also point out that China’s “draconian laws” stymie independent humanitarian efforts from Chinese NGOs.

    “China might be a great power now, but it has to learn how to behave like one, especially in the area of humanitarian aid,” said Xu Guoqi, professor of Chinese history and international relations at the University of Hong Kong.

     

     

    Xu said China has very few NGOs relative to its population, and they are still figuring out how to function within China as well as abroad.

    A former Chinese NGO worker, who requested anonymity and whose organisation recently shut down after losing access to international donors, told IRIN: “Many Chinese NGOs have relied on foreign funding, as local philanthropy is still underdeveloped. Now that the government is clamping down harder on civil society, NGOs are thinking about how to survive, not how to expand overseas.”

    Inequality undermines charity

    Despite rapid economic growth, private donations have not yet taken off.

    “Even with so many newly rich people, charity-giving is still not widely spread as in many Western countries,” said Xu.

    On Weibo, a popular Chinese website similar to Twitter, most discussions of China’s humanitarian aid are critical of the leadership for giving money to other countries when commenters felt the funds should be used assisting its own citizens.

    China's income inequality is among the world's worst. The country's Gini coefficient for income was 0.49 in 2012, according to a recent Peking University report, where a number above 0.40 represents severe income inequality.

    “Some members of the public will think, 'there are so many poor areas of China – why should [Chinese] give foreign aid?' But this is changing,” a staff member of the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation told IRIN. 

    Since 2003, this Beijing-based NGO, which enjoys government support, has carried out disaster relief operations in countries including Indonesia, Haiti, the US, Myanmar, Nepal, and Ecuador with expenditure totaling around $13.7 million.

    The CFPA staffer said the idea of charity could be catching on, judging by recent fundraising efforts.

    “For example, many individuals gave contributions of more than 1,000 yuan ($150) for Nepal earthquake relief, and within 24 hours of fundraising to fight against the Ebola virus we raised 1.21 million yuan ($182,747) from the public,” she said.

              Friuli Venezia Giulia, itinerari da gustare   
    «Il Friuli è un piccolo compendio dell'universo, alpestre piano e lagunoso in sessanta miglia da tramontana a mezzodì ». Così scriveva Ippolito Nievo ne Le confessioni d'un italiano, e questo vale ancor di più oggi che le sue terre comprendono anche il mare (e la cultura) di Trieste e le brulle ma affascinanti terre del Carso, al confine con la Slovenia.

    In circa 7.845 km2 la regione autonoma – nata nel 1963 dall’unione tra il Friuli e la Venezia Giulia – offre un’incredibile varietà di panorami, influenze culturali, esperienze e naturalmente anche sapori, portando all’ennesima potenza il proverbiale “campanilismo gastronomico” che caratterizza tutta Italia: dagli impianti di sci agli storici “bagni”, dai desolati magredi alle morbide colline coperte da vigneti, dai formaggi delle malghe carniche ai pesci della laguna, dagli squisiti prosciutti – non solo San Daniele ma anche Sauris e Cormons, per dirne qualcuno, senza dimenticare il buonissimo cotto servito con il rafano secondo la tradizione triestina – ai profumati mieli del Carso, dall’eleganza dei vini bianchi del Collio alla schiettezza altrettanto interessante di quelli carsolini passando per l’unicità degli orange.

    Inserita tra le 10 “mete top” del 2016 dalla guida Lonely Planet (in particolare per l’enoturismo) la regione, attraverso l’agenzia dedicata PromoTurismoFVG, adesso rilancia con la creazione della Strada del Vino e dei Sapori, una mappatura dell’offerta regionale suddivisa in 6 itinerari territoriali – Carso e Trieste; Collio; Isonzo e Colli Orientali; Aquileia e Riviera; Grave e Magredi; Collinare e Montagna – che coordina i veri protagonisti dell’ospitalità friulana: per ora aziende vitivinicole, strutture agrituristiche, ristoranti, trattorie, osterie con cucina, aziende agricole di produzione e trasformazione; ma in futuro anche bar, pasticcerie, enoteche, botteghe, imprese dell’artigianato legato all’enogastronomia, musei ed ecomusei e pure agenzie e figure professionali legate al turismo, dai tour operator alle guide turistiche. 

    L’obiettivo è promuovere i diversi tipi di destinazione che offre la regione ma anche garantire qualità, controllo e autenticità: con la Strada del Vino e dei Sapori il Friuli Venezia Giulia è la prima regione italiana a regolare la somministrazione di produzioni agroalimentari tradizionali, produzioni tipiche e di qualità non cucinate e l’assaggio del vino durante le visite in cantina.

    Ma in Friuli le possibili “esperienze” vanno oltre il classico repertorio del turismo enogastronomico.
    Ecco qualche esempio da tenere a mente per le prossime visite:


    A Udine tra passeggiate in bici, gelati e osterie


    Capoluogo storico del Friuli, Udine è una città decisamente sottovalutata e girarla con tranquillità a piedi o in bicicletta regala belle soprese. Nonostante le origini romane il centro si sviluppa soprattutto intorno all’anno 1000, una volta terminate le invasioni barbariche. Tutto nasce intorno al castello donato al Patriarca di Aquileia per proteggere la zona dagli Ungari; ma ben presto la città diventa soprattutto un fiorente centro di scambi commerciali – anche grazie al diritto si mercato settimanale – e di coltivazioni agricole come testimoniano ancora oggi le rogge, un sistema di canali che portavano l’acqua dai vicini fiumi. Dopo il trasferimento della sede patriarcale, la crescita della città fu esponenziale e veloce: oggi ne restano a testimonianza alcuni edifici rinascimentali come la Loggia del Lionello e quella di San Giovanni poste di fronte in piazza Libertà (la più antica della città, in chiaro stile veneziano), diversi lavori del Tiepolo – grande pittore del ‘600 veneziano che qui lavorò a lungo - custoditi nelle Gallerie a lui dedicate nel Museo Diocesano e soprattutto il Duomo, originariamente in stile gotico ma ampliato più volte e rimaneggiato internamente in stile Tardo Barocco nel ‘600 per volere della famiglia Manin. Commercianti locali originari della Toscana, acquistarono il titolo nobiliare da Venezia in cambio di aiuti bellici e fecero fortuna fino a che, nel 1789, Lodovico Manin non riuscì a diventare il 120° Doge di Venezia; il primo “forestiero” ma anche l’ultimo in assoluto: abdicò nel 1797 cedendo la Serenissima a Napoleone.

    Udine, Piazza Libertà

    Da quel momento cominciò il declino di Udine che rimase soprattutto un centro agricolo e di piccoli commerci i cui periodi più fiorenti furono soffocati dalle due guerre mondiali. Fu invece il terribile terremoto del 1976 a segnarne la ripresa definitiva: reagendo con determinazione al dramma, la città conobbe una modernizzazione commerciale e produttiva che l’ha resa la seconda della regione senza stravolgerne l’aspetto elegante del centro storico e la vitalità degli abitanti, che – a seconda dell’età e dei gusti – amano bere l’aperitivo seduti ai bar affacciati in piazza San Giacomo (o delle erbe), in uno dei localini lungo la vicina via Sarpi dove l’ex mercato del pesce è stato trasformato in una bella galleria d’arte o in una delle tante osterie del centro, dove ci si dà appuntamento per un taj di vino e qualche tartina a base di pane e salumi.

    A pesca in laguna, tra maree e casoni


    Anche la cittadina lagunare di Marano – o meglio, Marano Lagunare per non confonderla con altre località omonime in Italia – mostra ben chiari i segni del lungo dominio veneto, soprattutto nel dialetto locale oltre che, naturalmente, nell’essere parte integrante della laguna circostante: la stessa su cui affaccia anche Grado, delimitata da alcune isole come quella di Sant’Andrea e soprattutto dal gioco delle maree che ne determinano la navigabilità e la pesca.
    Mentre Grado nel corso dei secoli diventava una signorile località di villeggiatura e Lignano Sabbiadoro – sulla costa appena fuori dalla laguna – un divertimentificio estivo, Marano è rimasto un tranquillo porticciolo che ha i suoi confini nelle antiche mura e nelle isole lagunari e la sua attività principale nella pesca: il mercato, aperto solo agli addetti ai lavori, si tiene ogni giorno alle 14, quando le barche rientrano in porto con il loro carico fatto soprattutto di cefali (quelli dorati, caratterizzati da un punto color oro sul lato, grossi e squisiti), sardoni, acquatelle, anguille (in autunno) e poi gamberi, cozze, fasolari, cappesante e vongole veraci, che una volta venivano raccolti dalle donne nel fango vicino alle mura fortificate e oggi vengono allevati nelle acque della laguna.

    Casone nella laguna di Marano

    Fino al 2009 la maggior parte delle donne lavorava invece alla trasformazione del tonno – pescato in zona fino agli anni ’50 – nello stabilimento Maruzzella che poi si è trasferito altrove. Oggi chi non pesca lavora per lo più nel turismo che si sta sviluppando negli ultimi anni legato soprattutto alla ristorazione e alla laguna, dove si fanno belle escursioni in barca o in kayak e dove le acque sono sempre pulite anche grazie al fatto che il fiume Stella, che sfocia qui, non incontra industrie lungo il suo corso. Non a caso è stata creata la Riserva Naturale Regionale delle Foci dello Stella, un’area protetta e suggestiva dove s’incontrano pure piante e uccelli rari.

    Qui la pesca – e di riflesso anche il turismo – è di stampo tradizionale, a basso impatto ambientale, ed è legata a doppio giro con le maree e con le stagioni: mediamente l’acqua è alta poco più di un metro e si naviga solo con le piccole barche dal fondo piatto seguendo le “vie navigabili” segnalate dai pali di legno con tanto di cartelli a indicare la direzione. Quando la marea sale, entrando in laguna dalle cosiddette “bocche di porto”, il livello raddoppia e ci si sposta più facilmente. Ancora oggi, due volte l’anno – a marzo e a settembre, quando le acque sono più pescose – si fa il “tocco” per estrarre a sorte i primi a decidere dove posizionare le proprie reti fisse: a settembre, con il tocco della peschera, conviene scegliere le zone d’entroterra dove ci sono le anguille; a marzo, con il tocco di quaresima, meglio mettersi vicino alle bocche di porto per intercettare i pesci che rientrano in laguna dal mare.

    Pesca dei cefali nella laguna di Marano

    Essendo legati agli orari delle maree, quando non c’erano le barche a motore i pescatori della laguna preferivano dormire più vicini alle zone di pesca, nei tradizionali casoni in legno e paglia sulle isolette di sabbia. Ne restano ancora diversi, soprattutto nella zona della Riserva, di proprietà delle famiglie maranesi ma su suolo in concessione; anche per questo, oltre che per il fatto che non c’è elettricità, non vengono utilizzati a scopi turistici e l’unico modo per fare l’esperienza di mangiare degli squisiti spaghetti con cozze, vongole e fasolari o le seppie in tecia con la polenta in un casone è farsi invitare a pranzo da qualcuno del luogo, avendo cura di portare qualcosa da bere o da mangiare per ricambiare l’ospitalità.
    Il battello Santa Maria offre però belle uscite sia diurne sia serali – di giorno anche con la barca Pinta, più piccola e dal fondo piatto – anche con cena a bordo.


    Nelle grotte carsiche, tra vini, formaggi e putizza


    Se in tutto il mondo e nelle diverse lingue si parla di “fenomeni carsici” per indicare le grotte formate dall’erosione ad opera dell’acqua, un motivo ci sarà. Gran parte dell’altopiano del Carso, formato da rocce calcaree, sorge su grotte sotterranee che si sono formate nei millenni a causa delle acque del fiume Timavo – il cui corso appare e scompare tra Croazia e Trieste, rendendolo misterioso e quasi mitologico – e che in alcuni casi furono anche usate come riparo dai soldati durante la Grande Guerra.

    Oggi c’è invece chi le utilizza a scopi gastronomici come l’allevatore e casaro Dario Zidaric (loc. Prepotto, 36, Duino Aurisina, tel. 040.201178) che per far stagionare il suo Jamar – straordinario e intenso formaggio a latte crudo vaccino – si cala con attrezzatura speleologica in una grotta carsica a 60 metri di profondità. Anche il quasi omonimo vignaiolo Benjamin Zidarich ha deciso di scavare la sua nuova cantina nella roccia carsica, ricavando ben 5 livelli con caratteristiche di umidità e temperature ottimali per far invecchiare i suoi ottimi vini, a cominciare dalla Vitosvka Kamin fatta fermentare in tini di pietra formati da 5 piani a incastro volutamente non allineati perché, spiega lui, “in Carso non c’è nulla che sia dritto per natura”.

    Vigneti di Zidarich

    Tra le grotte visitabili le più note sono quella del Gigante, in Italia, e quelle di Postumia e di San Canziano in Slovenia. Meno note sono le grotte di Torre di Slivia, anche perché fino al 2012 erano chiuse al pubblico. Profonde oltre 100 metri e originariamente quasi inaccessibili per via di un unico ingresso molto scosceso, furono scoperte per la prima volta nel 1185 e sorgono nei confini di un terreno privato appartenente alla famiglia dei titolari dell’omonimo agriturismo. Solo nel 1968 fu aperta come attrazione turistica creando un altro ingresso più comodo con delle scale che portano fino alla parte più profonda e scenografica con diverse “camere” caratterizzate da imponenti formazioni calcaree, stalattiti e stalagmiti – tra cui le due “colonne” – e ricovero preferito di una folta colonia di pipistrelli. A lungo abbandonate, le grotte sono state riaperte nel 2012 da Corrado, che accompagna i visitatori fino all’ingresso nel bosco con il suo agribus e affida poi la visita a una guida esperta. Scendere nel cuore della terra carsica è già di per sé un’esperienza. Ma la cosa diventa ancora più interessante completando la visita con un assaggio “sotterraneo” della squisita putizza fatta in casa, il tipico dolce lievitato carsolino a forma di chiocciola e dal ricco ripieno a base di frutta secca e spezie.


    Sul Carso si fa trekking con le pecore (e si assaggiano mieli e formaggi)


    Se il sottosuolo del Carso è affascinante, la superficie non è da meno: le lande all’apparenza brulle sono ricche di erbe officinali e piante che danno origine a mieli profumatissimi e particolari (come quello di marasca) e formaggi e carni altrettanto interessanti, grazie all’alimentazione “naturale” degli animali.
    Qui anticamente si allevavano soprattutto pecore della razza autoctona carsolina, adatte a vivere anche nel difficile habitat locale e ad affrontare la transumanza dalle colline al mare ma poco produttive e per questo quasi scomparse. Oggi Annamaria e Andrea – che aiutano i genitori di lei nella gestione dell’azienda Antonic – stanno lavorando per riformare un gregge di sole pecore carsoline, dal vello più scuro, per il momento affiancate al 50% da quelle di razza sarda per un totale di 200 animali.

    Pecore del Carso

    Tra le due guerre mondiali il nonno di Annamaria era arrivato ad averne circa 1000 ma, con la creazione della frontiera che tagliava a metà i pascoli; dovette rinunciarvi; poi il figlio e oggi la nipote hanno voluto seguirne le orme riprendendo anche la pratica della transumanza, portando in inverno le pecore nei terreni di un’azienda vinicola nel Goriziano. Nei restanti mesi gli animali sono liberi di pascolare nei terreni circostanti, portati in giro dai pastori per diverse ore al giorno tra boschi e prati immacolati, scegliendo le erbe che più gradiscono e zone sempre pulite e fresche. “Il risultato è un latte di altissima qualità, anche se poco, e pure le carni sono ottime e sane” racconta Andrea.

    Provare per credere: ricotte e pecorini di diverse stagionature – anche con caglio vegetale – sono davvero squisiti, da soli o accompagnati dal miele locale.
    Se poi volete anche verificare con i vostri occhi cosa mangiano le bestie, potete partecipare a un’uscita di “trekking con le pecore” accompagnandole per un pezzo del loro percorso e poi tornando all’agri-ristoro di famiglia per un lauto assaggio. L’azienda è anche fattoria didattica, con varie attività per bambini, dedicata all’asino Berto nato nel 2008 dall’asinella Susi.

              el BARCA ficha a Heurtel   
    Heurtel ha sido internacional con la selección francesa, con la que obtuvo la medalla de oro en el Eurobasket de Eslovenia en 2013 y la medalla de bronce en el Mundial de España en 2014. Aunque las cifras de la contratación no son oficiales, la prensa francesa ha publicado que el jugador cobrará alrededor de 2,5 millones de euros netos por las dos temporadas que se ha comprometido con el Barcelona.

    La llegada de Heurtel es la primera que se produce desde que llegó al equipo su nuevo entrenador, Sito Alonso, presentado oficialmente el martes. El equipo azulgrana prescindirá probablemente de Tyrese Rice, el base estadounidense que incorporó la pasada temporada y que no ha respondido a las expectativas. El club también estudia la incorporación del base del Valencia Guillem Vives.
    Heurtel ha promediado esta temporada 12.7 puntos, 5.6. asistencias y 26 minutos de media en la Euroliga. En la temporada 2015-2016 fue el líder en asistencias de la Euroliga, tanto a nivel total como para partido con casi 8 por encuentro. En la Liga turca, ha jugado un total de 96 partidos en tres temporadas y en la última fue el segundo máximo asistente con una media de siete por partido y 12,3 puntos.

              Tour de France: Stage One Preview: Düsseldorf - Düsseldorf    

    The 2017 edition Tour de France gets underway on 1 July with a 14-kilometre time-trial through the streets of Düsseldorf.

    We kick things off this year with a Grand Départ that will see the riders tear through the streets of Germany’s ninth most popular city, Düsseldorf. While this stage is too long to be considered a prologue, the course is still short enough for the riders to have a real go with a few three flat stages to follow.

    While all eyes will be on the likes of Tony Martin and Primož Roglic, it would be unwise to rule out a big performance from Richie Porte who – as well as winning the individual time-trial in the Dauphine – looks to be a genuine contender for the GC this year.

    To Win Stage
    Tony Martin 7/4 | Primož Roglic 5/2 | Jos van Emden 9/2 | Stefan Kung 6/1 | Jonathan Castroviejo 18/1

    The Contenders

    Tony Martin 7/4
    The German will ride in the Colours of Katusha-Alpecin this year and will be eager to wear the Yellow Jersey for his new team over the first few stages. He comes into this stage on home soil having just won his sixth-consecutive German Time-Trial Championship. He's primed and ready to go and will look to blow the rest of the field away on a lightening fast course.

    Primož Roglic 5/2
    The Slovenian certainly has enjoyed a strange journey on his way to becoming an elite Grand Tour cyclist. He was crowned the Junior World Ski Jumping Champion in 2007 and continued to compete before joining his first professional cycling team, Adria Mobil in 2013.

    He's since seen his stock rise exponentially following wins in the Tour d'Azerbaïdjan and the Tour of Slovenia earning himself a spot on the LottoNL-Jumbo squad. An accomplished time-trialist (current national champion of Slovenia) and climber, he'll be keen to add to his one and only Grand Tour stage win which came in the Radda in Chianti – Greve in Chianti (stage nine) in the 2016 Giro d'Italia.

    Richie Porte 33/1
    This is definitely a stage that the Australian will be targeting. If he can open up a gap between himself and Chris Froome this early in the race, he's almost guaranteed - barring any crashes, mechanical failures or successful breakaways - to keep the Yellow Jersey up until stage five when we'll finish at the summit of La Plance des Belles Filles, the first Super Category climb of the tour. He's proven himself to be an effective time-trial rider in recent years and could well pop up with a surprise win come Saturday afternoon.



    The Route
    The 14-kilometre individual time trial through the streets of Düsseldorf will have the likes of Tony Martin, Primož Roglic, Jos van Emden, and the rest of the big time-trial specialists licking their lips at the prospect of donning the Yellow Jersey for the early stages of the race.

    This sort of stage can also see some of the bigger GC contenders – especially those who aren’t particularly strong time-trialists – lose precious seconds before the race properly gets properly underway.

    The route looks lightning-fast with the riders only facing the real first corner six kilometres in. From then on, however, it does get a bit more technical so we could well see one or two gaps open up before we hit a virtual four kilometre straight to the finish.

    From a punting perspective, it's worth nothing that Richie Porte claimed the stage four time-trial at the Dauphine from Tony Martin. It’s performances like these that has seen the Australian emerge as many pundits’ favourites to claim the GC title year, especially seeing as Chris Froome has endured a rather underwhelming season thus far. The Aussie looks good value at 33/1 and may well receive a bit of betting support.



    Verdict: Richie Porte to beat Chris Froome (Match Up) 7/10
    The Aussie showed just how strong he can be on the flatter parts of these fast-paced time-trials. He was two seconds down on Tony Martin in the Dauphine TT at the first intermediate check but stormed back on the latter parts of the course to win by 12 seconds. He may well target this time-trial too in a bid to put Froome on the back foot early. The Brit finished 37 seconds behind Porte in the Dauphine time-trial and a similar showing now would lay down a serious marker. 7/10 looks excellent value. 

    Value Bet: Tony Martin 7/4
    As frustrating as it is tipping favourites, I just don't see anyone else pipping the German on the opening day of the 2017 Tour. The weather may also play a pretty big role in this TT with plenty of rain set to fall according to local weather services, the day's stage will likely go to the strongest out and out time-trialist. Get on at 7/4.

              Oakland University Chorale to Perform Bon Voyage Concert at Historic Detroit Church   

    Before embarking on a European concert tour this summer, the Oakland University Chorale will present a Bon Voyage Concert on June 27 at Sweetest Heart of Mary Church in Detroit. The concert, Power, Passion, and Peace, will feature music from the Renaissance period to today. It is entirely a cappella and will span styles from sacred music that is more than 400 years old, to African American spirituals, to contemporary American choral music.

    Power, Passion, and Peace will begin at 7:30 pm. Michael A. Mitchell, conductor of the Chorale, said, "Sweetest heart of Mary is a beautiful old church and a spectacular place for a concert." The church is located at 4440 Russell Street, Detroit. The concert is free and all are welcome.

    Many of the students in the Chorale plan to be professional singers, and the upcoming tour will offer invaluable experiences of European culture and the performance standards of the places where so much great music was created. Future educators in the group will draw on these experiences to enrich lessons for their students.

    The group will leave from Toronto and fly to Venice, where they will have the great honor of singing at Sunday evening Mass at St. Mark's Basilica. They will also sing in the Italian town of

    Pordenone.

    The second leg of their tour will take them to Bled in Slovenia, where they will give a concert at St. Martin's Parish Church. The third leg will see them in Zagreb, Croatia, where they will sing in the Atrium of the Klovic Court Gallery. Their final concert will be in the beautiful Baroque Peterskirche, located in the heart of Vienna.

    The Chorale will also take tours of each location, learn about the culture of the cities they visit, and the students will have time to explore on their own. "The students are incredibly excited to share their music with audiences in Europe," said Professor Mitchell. "They have worked diligently all year to raise the funds and prepare the music for this trip. I'm excited for them, and I believe the trip will change their lives."

              BRIOPHYTAS   

    BRIOPHYTAS

    Los briófitos carecen de un sistema radicular bien desarrollado y de estructuras altamente especializadas en el transporte de agua. Por lo tanto presentan una complejidad considerablemente menos a las plantas vasculares.
    Los briófitos se desarrollan en parajes húmedos y sombríos; siempre con alta húmedad ambiental.
    Presentan una estructura simple, lo que les confiere un tamaño pequeño no suelen superar los 20 cm de longitud por esporofito, aunque pueden formar grandes masas tapizantes o colgantes.
    Los briófitos carecen de raíces verdaderas, pero si poseen unos rizoides; que son unas células individuales en formas alargadas o fibrosas que permiten la fijación al sustrato, muchos de los briofitos generalmente los musgos suelen presentar estructuras simples con aspecto folioso; estructuras análogas a las hojas en plantas superiores,pero sin la presencia de tejido en ningun órgano del briofito.
    Los briofitos, como cualquier organismo dentro del Reino Plantae, tiene un cíclo de alternancia de generaciones; (cíclo diplohaplonte) en contraste con las plantas vasculares, los briófitos se caracterizan por tener un gametofito (n) más complejo y de mayor dimensión que el propio esporófito (2n).

    El cíclo de vida de un briófito comienza con la liberación de esporas de la cápsula que se abre y expulsa todas las esporas al abrirse el opérculo.
    La espora germina y da lugar a un protonema filamentoso ramificado que da lugar al gametofito.
    Los espermatozoides, que son expulsados de los anteridios son atraidos al arquegongio y fusionarse así con la ovocélula para poder formar el cigoto (2n).

    El cigoto se divide por mitosis y forma el esporófito (2n). De forma simultánea a las mitosis el arquegongio se divide y forma la caliptra protectora. El esporófito maduro consiste en una cápsula donde ocurre el proceso de meiosis para la formación de las esporas (n).

    Según el tipo de briófito que estemos tratando puede presentar ambos gametofitos o sólo uno.


    Las plantas briófitas se dividen en tres clases:

    -Clase Bryopsida(musgos)
    -Clase Marchantiopsida(hepáticas)
    -Clase Anthocerotopsyda(antocerotas)

    Hey, Thanks for sharing first of all. I love how people sometimes take offence in a US river map not showing rivers from Canada and Mexico. :) Nobody every complained that my Italy river map is not showing rivers of Slovenia. :) Anyway, I'd love to make a North America, Alaska and Hawaii version obviously, but sadly the data is not available. Neither for most of Canada. As for the Great Lakes region, the reason it's all the same color is that it's the same river basin. St. Lawrence.

              German Lawmakers Vote To Legalize Same-Sex Marriage   

    Germany's parliament on Friday passed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage ― a sudden landmark shift for LGBTQ rights in Europe's most populous country.

    The vote came days after Chancellor Angela Merkel signaled that she was open to changing Germany's marriage laws to include same-sex couples, prompting a hurried push from opposition lawmakers to pass the so-called marriage-for-all legislation.

    Merkel's ruling coalition had long opposed a vote on same-sex marriage, an issue that is divisive among her conservative bloc. But during an interview on Monday with German women's magazine Brigitte, Merkel said she was open to members of her coalition voting their conscience, rather than holding the party line.

    Merkel's shift came after she visited a lesbian couple raising eight foster children. She called her dinner with the family "a life-changing experience" and said she realized her party's arguments against same-sex marriage were no longer valid.

    LGBTQ-rights groups and analysts, however, viewed Merkel's about-face as a way for her to shut down criticism from pro-marriage equality opposition parties ahead of Germany's general election later this year.

    Merkel's comment sparked rapid reactions from opposition politicians, who called for immediate action on the issue. The leader of Germany's Social Democratic Party, Martin Schulz, demanded a vote within the week. Schulz is trailing Merkel in opinion polls.

    Some of the more conservative lawmakers in Merkel's Christian Democratic Union opposed the legislation and blamed the chancellor for shifting her political stance.

    Polls show that a strong majority of German voters favor same-sex marriage. A Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency survey earlier this year showed 83 percent of Germans support it.

    Germany has allowed civil partnerships since 2001. But unlike many neighboring countries, it has lacked full same-sex marriage equality. A growing number of countries in Europe have legalized same-sex marriage, including Finland and Slovenia this year. Italy remains among European states that permit only civil unions and do not grant full rights afforded to married couples.

    The goal of this project is to clarify the absurdity of the Nazi regime to the younger generations. In particular, it aims to highlight one of the most cruel methods of ethnic exterminations in the concentration camps, and thus develop the sense of European identity, based on common values, history and culture. Rižarna Concentration Camp near Trieste was located the occupied Slovenian territory, and almost 5.000 people (mostly Slovenes, Croats, Italians, and several members of the Jewish community of Trieste) were executed there. Nowadays, the trend of information society and younger generation lead towards the use of interactive media in education and providing information.  Therefore, the presentation of the above camp will be conducted through the media listed below. Firstly, there will be a series of radio broadcasts on issues related to the camp and the EU. Secondly, a 3D reconstruction of the camp in the form of a virtual museum will be created using an interactive web platform (Second Life), Facebook, 3D model of the camp using the Google Earth map. In addition, a 3D reconstruction of the destroyed crematorium will be presented as an application for smart phones (Layar).  The purpose of these presentations is to demonstrate the European values and to bring Europe closer to the young EU citizens. Besides these IT approaches, also more traditional methods will be used, such as website, pamphlets and brochures, art design contests for youth between 10 and 18 years of age, covering the theme of active European remembrance, organizing round table discussions with historians, MEPs, CC survivors. The aim of bringing together people from local communities across EU is to actively participate and share experiences and values with the young, establish the intergenerational dialogue from which the young could learn the history and become packed with experience to build the future and also promote the EU citizenship and participation as a key challenges for the EU.

              The Switzerland-Albania Match at Euro 2016 Told a Personal, Massive Balkan Story   

    One Sunday in June 2000, I biked to The Abbey Pub on the northwest side of Chicago to watch Spain play Slovenia in the UEFA Euro Championship. Back in the day, it was much harder to find ways to watch the Euro Championship in the U.S. The Abbey, an Irish pub, was one of the few places showing the matches. I got there early—the game was to start at 8 a.m.—to have breakfast, but it was already packed with Irishmen clutching their pints, watching a live broadcast of an important game of hurling live from Dublin. Many of them were inebriated, shouting at the gigantic screen. It didn’t look good.

    I’ll watch any soccer game anywhere, but I really wanted to see Slovenia play. It was their first (and last, so far) Euro after declaring independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Their coach, Srečko Katanec, had been an excellent defensive midfielder and one of the pillars of the Yugoslav national team that lost on penalties to Argentina in the 1990 World Cup quarterfinals. In the Slovenians’ first game at the 2000 Euros they faced Yugoslavia, which by this time consisted of only Serbia and Montenegro; though Slovenia took a 3-0 lead and Yugoslavia went down to 10 men, the Slovenians could manage only a 3-3 draw.* I hoped they might do well against Spain, which was at the time still fully committed to mediocrity, or even surprise everyone by progressing beyond the group stage. Which is to say that the match was extremely important to me.

    But when I tracked down a waitress to ask if Spain-Slovenia would be shown at The Abbey, she looked at me as though I was insane. I ended up watching the game on a very small TV in a very dark basement, the sound overwhelmed by the stampede of hooting Irishmen above my head. At some point a waitress came down to fetch something, turned on the light and was startled breathless by my unexpected presence. “What are you doing here?” she asked and I sheepishly pointed at the screen where Slovenia was losing 2-1. They did not progress beyond the group stage. And my breakfast was served cold.

    On Saturday morning, while watching Switzerland-Albania, I recalled that glorious time when following a Euro Championship was an underground activity. This was another one of those games important not only for tactical oddities, or because Arsenal just bought Granit Xhaka, but also because the vast majority of the players on the pitch are Albanian speakers, and because the Xhaka brothers are facing each other (Granit for Switzerland, Taulant for Albania). Soccer contains histories, personal and massive, and this game features a particularly Balkan story, which I could read in the line-ups.

    A few of us from the Balkans remember the Albania ruled by Enver Hoxha, surely in the running for the most outrageous European dictator ever. Take this: In the heyday of his rule, Hoxha would be the only candidate in presidential elections, in which the entire population of Albania would vote for him—the entire population as recorded in the most recent census minus one, that is, as it was beneath the Great Leader to vote for himself. And then, after the fall of the Wall, and the dissolution of Hoxha’s regime, there was a period of what is generously called “transition” built upon a gigantic Ponzi scheme that would eventually clean out up to one third of the population. The imaginary money led to a short, delusional renaissance of Albanian football, which featured the 1978 World Cup winner Mario Kempes arriving to coach KF Lushnja in a town with the population of 30,000. I remember the images of Kempes landing in Albania to be swarmed by adoring fans—it was not unlike seeing, say, Miroslav Klose arriving to coach in Mobile, Alabama. After the economy collapsed, in 1996 or so, boatfuls of destitute Albanians started crossing the Adriatic to get to Italy—a preview of the current refugee crisis.

    Meanwhile, on the Swiss side, the Albanian-speaking players are mainly from Kosova, the part of Yugoslavia where the nation’s dissolution essentially commenced in the late 1980s. Valon Behrami’s family found itself in Switzerland in the ’90s, and were to be deported when the local community collected signatures to support them, and they stayed. Xherdan Shaqiri has three passports: Swiss, Albanian, and Kosovar, and is also eligible for a Serbian one, but I don’t think he’s eager to apply; in 1999, Serbia conducted a brutal military campaign against the Albanian population in Kosova, resulting in a wave of refugees spread around Europe.

    The expansion of UEFA Euro competition to 24 teams will lower the quality of the soccer played—as was evident in the Switzerland-Albania game. But the expansion is directly related to the changes in Europe in the past quarter-century. If you want to understand all or any of that, you might have to endure watching Romania-Albania, to be played on June 19. I’ll be glued to the TV.

              CASTELLANO -- BENJAMIN FULFORD:26:06:2017   

    Cambios históricos ocurren en Europa central, Asia y otros lugares mientras el viejo orden implosiona

    Junio 26, 2017

    A veces se anuncian cambios históricos con titulares tan oscuros como este: “Los Ministros de Defensa de los Seis Países se Centran en Cooperación en Praga”.
    http://www.radio.cz/es/section/news/defence-ministers-from-six- Países-enfoque-en-cooperación-en-Praga
    Un título más exacto sería “El Imperio Austro-Húngaro vuelve a la vida después de 100 años de interrupción”. La historia dice que Chequia, Eslovaquia, Hungría, Austria, Eslovenia y Croacia van a realizar unas maniobras militares conjuntas para proteger sus fronteras. Sus fronteras comunes son casi las mismas fronteras que las del Imperio Austro-Húngaro y dentro de estas fronteras las autoridades civiles, policías y militares van a trabajar juntos. Por lo general, una frontera externa compartida, y que en este caso opera independientemente de la UE, es la definición de un país.
    Https://visegradpost.com/es/2017/06/23/the-central-european-defence-cooperation-commited-against-mass-migration/
    También vale la pena señalar que la dinastía Habsburgo derrocada después de la Primera Guerra Mundial eran rivales de las dinastías Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild que ganaron la guerra, lo que puede ser la razón por la cual Hungría ya ha derrocado a su banco central Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild.
    Es una buena suposición que Karl Von Habsburg,
    Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_von_Habsburg
    Jefe de la Unión Paneuropea y heredero del trono de los Habsburgo, ve la oportunidad de revivir el Imperio de sus antepasados, ahora que sus rivales Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild han perdido tanto poder.
    En otra parte de Europa, estamos viendo una creciente división entre Alemania y los EE.UU., con la gente en Alemania ahora abiertamente hablando de que la UE imponga sanciones a los EE.UU. en represalia por sus esfuerzos para evitar que los alemanes compren el gas ruso que es más barato.
    Los europeos también están presionando para crear un ejército conjunto con la capacidad de operar en el extranjero como otra ruptura con el presidente de Estados Unidos Donald Trump de los Estados Unidos.

    Además, el esclavo de los Rothschild, el presidente Emmanuel Macron de Francia, ahora se ha puesto públicamente al lado de Rusia en Siria. Esta es una clara indicación de que los Rothschild oportunistas entienden a quién tienen que hacer la pelota ahora si quieren proteger sus intereses.
    El aumento de la influencia de Rusia, sin embargo, ha llevado a una gran lucha de poder allí con los Caballeros de Malta tratando de tomar el control, según fuentes del FSB (Servicio Federal de Seguridad de la Federación Rusa) allí. Se les ha concedido la cruz de caballero de Malta a los siguientes rusos::
    Ministro de Defensa Sergei Shoigu, B.A.Berezovsky, Pavel Borodin, G.E.Burbulis, Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, VV. Ilyushin V.V.Kostikov,M.Yu.Lesin, S.F.Lisovsky, Yevgeny Primakov, A.V.Rutskoy, S.A.Filatov, Shaimiev, S.M.Shahry, V.B.Yumashev y S.V.Yastrzhembsky, según fuentes rusas del FSB.
    “¿Por qué están involucradas estas personas en una organización que ha promovido la destrucción de Rusia (lo que queda de ella), el colapso de la industria, la ciencia y la educación, la extinción del pueblo ruso y el empobrecimiento espiritual de la nación?”, pregunta una fuente del FBS conectada con la Sociedad del Dragón Blanco. “La Orden Masónica de la Cruz del Caballero se otorga por detrás de los escenarios por su ayuda a la destrucción del Estado ruso, la soberanía y el poder del Estado”, continúa esta fuente.
    La fuente dice que los Caballeros de Malta están tratando de controlar todas las empresas de seguridad privadas rusas. Ellos están haciendo esto a través de una asociación de guardaespaldas en Rusia dirigida por un tal Sr. Fonareff que es “un pequeño títere a la Orden de Malta.” La organización matriz es la Organización Internacional de Guardaespaldas y Servicios de Seguridad.
    “Cuando usted lea su página web simplemente elimine el “anti”… porque oigo que los Hospitalarios y la Cruz Roja están involucrados en el tráfico de personas y en el robo de órganos”, según la fuente, que tiene un cargo superior en el gobierno ruso.
    Toda la organización está encabezada por el profesor George Popper, un alto caballero de Malta.
    Leo Zagami, un satanista confeso, afirmó que la logia masónica P2 que adora al sol negro daba las órdenes a los Caballeros de Malta.
    Esto no significa que la mayoría de los miembros de los Caballeros de Malta sean satanistas, sino sólo que ciertas personas clave en la parte superior de la jerarquía lo son.
    En cualquier caso, el intento de la IBSSA de controlar todas las empresas privadas de seguridad en Rusia es típico de la logia fascista masónica P2, que quiere crear una dictadura absoluta y centralizada del mundo. La facción rusa del SDB se opone al control monolítico centralizado y se espera que gane la lucha por el poder allí.
    La lucha por el poder en otros lugares también va en contra de los satanistas. En Oriente Medio, el rey Salman nombró a su hijo Mohammed Bin Salman como príncipe heredero y despidió a su medio hermano Nayef, que está bien conectado con el “establisment” estadounidense. Dado que el rey Salman que ha aparecido recientemente en público es visiblemente más joven que el senil Salman que asumió el trono, es seguro asumir que es sólo un doble de cuerpo y que Salman Jr., de 31 años de edad, es ahora rey de Arabia Saudita.
    Sin embargo, fuentes del Pentágono dicen que “esto es sólo un intento inútil de retrasar el reset de la moneda global”. Además, “Arabia Saudita está aislada por el cártel ruso / iraní / qatarí y pronto podría verse obligada a vender el poco petróleo que todavía tiene en yuanes y no dólares “, dicen las fuentes. En este momento sólo los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, Bahrein, Egipto e Israel apoyan al régimen saudita.
    Las fuentes del Pentágono también dicen que el yerno de Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, fue enviado por orden del establishment militar estadounidense a Israel para reunirse con el primer ministro israelí, Benyamin Netanyahu, para exigir un cambio de régimen en ese país. No es casualidad que las fuerzas iraníes y de Hizbollah, protegidas por una nueva base aérea rusa, hayan llegado a la frontera israelí para dar aviso al régimen criminal de Netanyahu de que está militarmente aislado del mundo. El ejército estadounidense no va a luchar por proteger al régimen criminal de Netanyahu, dicen las fuentes del Pentágono.
    Dicen las fuentes que una medida similar se está llevando a cabo en Ucrania, donde el presidente Petro Poroshenko ha sido convocado a Washington para “discutir el cambio de régimen”. También que estos movimientos son parte de un esfuerzo mundial para poner fin a todos los conflictos y preparar el camino para un nuevo sistema financiero.
    También es probable que haya un cambio de régimen en Estados Unidos, continúan las fuentes. Aquí los últimos acontecimientos demuestran que toda la campaña “échale la culpa Rusia” por parte del antiguo establishment está fallando. Dicen las fuentes del Pentágono que, en cambio, “el cabal está a la defensiva porque Bernie Sanders y su esposa Jane están bajo investigación del FBI por fraude bancario y la ex procuradora general Loretta Lynch está bajo una investigación del Departamento de Justicia por obstrucción a la justicia”.
    El mismo Trump se espera que sea finalmente relevado, ya que losEE.UU. requieren un cambio de régimen real, mientras que Trump meramente representa la facción menos mala del antiguo régimen, continúan las fuentes.
    En Asia también, hay mucho en curso. La semana pasada, el presidente de Corea del Sur, Moon Jae In, tuvo una conversación con su homólogo norcoreano Kim Jon Un, donde acordó unificar la península coreana en un futuro próximo, según fuentes de la derecha japonesa cercanas al emperador. Este movimiento, al igual que el incipiente resurgimiento del estado de Habsburgo, es posible ahora porque el gobierno secreto de la Reserva Federal de 1913 se está derrumbando, dijeron fuentes del SDB en Asia.
    En Japón, mientras tanto, hubo un incidente extraño en el que el USS Fitzgerald, un destructor de misiles con tecnología punta, fue golpeado por un buque de carga registrado Filipinas. Fuentes del Pentágono especulan que “puede haber sido una falsa bandera y secuestro electrónico por parte de Israel, incapaz de usar sus submarinos, para echarle la culpa a Corea del Norte, pocos días después del 50 aniversario del ataque israelí de 1967 contra el USS Liberty”.
    La otra posibilidad, según las fuentes, es que “el Fitz pudo haber sido inmovilizado por un (mecanismo) EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) o de guerra electrónica, forzando a los militares estadounidenses a revelar su base en la tecnología de Marte, su tecnología secreta y el programa espacial secreto (ssp) que es bueno para la Humanidad.”
    Ha habido definitivamente algún tipo de tecnología secreta futurista desplegada en Japón en los últimos años. Las existencias de material de hardware militar almacenado en una (base) subterránea japonesa y en las bases en Kyushu fueron destruidas recientemente por algún tipo de arma secreta. Además, la radiación alrededor de Fukushima ha desaparecido después de que una enorme flota de aviones desconocidos sobrevolara la región, según la inteligencia militar japonesa.
    El régimen fascista del primer ministro Shinzo Abe también está bajo un creciente asedio. Los periódicos aquí informan como de un escándalo que Abe utilizó una influencia indebida para ayudar a que la institución educativa Kake Gakuen con base en la prefectura de Okayama abriese una nueva escuela de medicina veterinaria.
    De lo que los periódicos no informan es que Kake Gakuen está dirigido por las mismas personas que estaban involucradas en el famoso instituto de guerra biológica y química de la unidad 731 de Japón y que la “escuela veterinaria” era sólo una tapadera para el desarrollo de armas biológicas y químicas, según fuentes cercanas al emperador. En otras palabras, en lugar de hablar suavemente sobre “tráfico de influencias”, los periódicos deben hablar de crímenes de guerra. En cualquier caso, Abe está muriendo, dicen las fuentes y el cambio de régimen fundamental, es decir, la eliminación de los fascistas en Japón es sólo cuestión de tiempo.

              Η Χάγη χάνει την όποια αξιοπιστία της    
    Η Κροατία φωνάζει και διαμαρτύρεται για την «άδικη» απόφαση του Διεθνούς Διαιτητικού Δικαστηρίου της Χάγης και δηλώνει ότι θα αγνοήσει απόφαση για τον Κόλπο της Τεργέστης στην Ίστρια .

    Η Σλοβενία πανηγυρίζει και μιλάει για «ιστορική», απόφαση. Το Διεθνές Διαιτητικό Δικαστήριο της Χάγης παραχώρησε στη Σλοβενία το μεγαλύτερο τμήμα του διαμφισβητούμενου Κόλπου Πίραν, τον οποίο όμως εξακολουθεί να διεκδικεί η Κροατία, και έδωσε διάδρομο στη Λιουμπλιάνα.

    Η διαφορά μεταξύ της Κροατίας και της Σλοβενίας για τον κόλπο Πίραν χρονολογείται από την διάλυση της Γιουγκοσλαβίας. Η Πρωθυπουργός της Κροατίας Γιαντράνκα Κοσόρ και ο πρωθυπουργός της Σλοβενίας Μπορούτ Παχόρ υπέγραψαν τον Νοέμβριο του 2009 συνυποσχετικό διαιτησίας και η διαδικασία που ξεκίνησε Ιούνιο του 2014 στη Χάγη. Τον Ιούλιο του 2015, η εφημερίδα «Vecernji list» δημοσίευσε συνομιλίες μεταξύ του Σλοβένου Δικαστή και της εκπροσώπου της σλοβενικής κυβέρνησης που είχαν υποκλαπεί από τις οποίες προέκυπτε η συνεννόηση με τους διαιτητές για να αποδοθεί το 75% των υδάτων του κόλπου Πέραν στη Λιουμπλιάνα.
    Η Κροατία κατήγγειλε την διαδικασία και αποχώρησε και είχε δηλώσει ότι δεν αναγνωρίζει τις αποφάσεις του δικαστηρίου.
    Έτσι χθες ανακοινώθηκε μια γνωστή εδώ και δυο χρόνια απόφαση που εκθέτει το διαιτητικό όργανο στο οποίο είχε αποθέσει την ύπαρξη της η ελληνική ψωρο-ελίτ από την εποχή του Αττίλα.

    Η απόφαση του διαιτητή είναι πολύ αρνητική για τα ελληνικά «δίκαια» στο Αιγαίο , διότι αγνοεί τις ακτές ,και βάζει "αναλογικά ζητήματα" και με το «διάδρομο» προς την Αδριατική, υιοθετεί την τουρκική άποψη για την υφαλοκρηπίδα του Αιγαίου.

              New Coaches Join Nordic Teams   

    PARK CITY, Utah (June 29, 2017) – U.S. Ski & Snowboard partner organizations USA Nordic Sports and Women’s Ski Jumping USA have both announced new head coaches for the 2017-18 season. Martin Bayer will serve as the new head nordic combined coach and Igor Cuznar will be the World Cup coach for the women.

    Cuznar has been involved with ski jumping since 1985. He competed as an athlete before becoming a coach in Slovenia in 2000. Cuznar joined the women's team in 2015, assisting then head coach Bine Norcic at both the Continental and World Cup levels. In his new role, Cuznar will focus on creating athletic success on the World Cup and supporting the top athletes in women’s ski jumping, including Sarah Hendrickson, Nita Englund and others, from his home in Slovenia.

    “As our sport continues to grow, we’ve evolved our staff to help manage and foster that growth across all our programs,” said Alan Alborn, program director for Women's Ski Jumping USA. “Igor’s home base of Slovenia will provide a consistent environment for the team that works well with their heavy travel and competition demands. We are really looking forward to the lead up to this Olympic season and beyond.”

    USA Nordic recently promoted Bayer from development/Continental Cup coach to head coach. The promotion is the culmination of over 17 years as a coach in the U.S. at the club and national team level. He also competed at both the 1992 and 1994 Olympics for Czechoslovakia and the Slovak Republic respectively. Bayer’s close work with the national teams over the past few years made him a natural fit for the role left vacant by retired head coach Dave Jarrett.

    “Martin’s years spent rising through the club ranks allow him to relate to everyone, from the parents to the athletes, involved with our sport,” said USA Nordic Sports Executive Director Bill Demong. “He will implement the best plan for the team using the resources we have to ensure we see athletic success this season and beyond.”

    Both Bayer and Cuznar will be on board to support the ski jumping and nordic combined teams throughout their training this summer.

    Ski jumping and nordic combined athletes will compete next month at the 19th annual Springer Tournee at the Utah Olympic Park July 27-30. The event will also serve at the U.S. Ski Jumping Championships for the large hill.

              Bachatología: una puesta en escena   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


              Vintage Leather Jewelry Trinket Box with Hinged Lid and Blue Silk Lining Made in Yugoslavia by EitherOrFinds   

    14.00 USD

    This is a lovely vintage leather jewelry or trinket box, which was made decades ago in Yugoslavia, now broken up into the countries of Serbia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia and Kosovo.

    The leather has been expertly cut and pieced together in an unusual abstract floral design. Primarily created in beige or off white leather, it is laced around the outside with green leather, with other design colors of blue, green, and wheat gold leather.

    Hinged and lined with blue silk, it measures 6-1/2 by 6 by 2.

    Although there are some signs of use, the box is in very good condition and ready for whatever jewelry or trinkets you'd like it to contain.


              Comment on Despite the DUP/Tory deal today, United Ireland is on the cards – we must have a plan! by Grzegorz Kolodziej   
    TO DAVID MCWILLIAMS - MY VISION OF IRELAND'S FOREIGN POLICY DURING MR TRUMP: WHERE I AGREE WITH THEE, AND WHERE I THINK THAT YOU SAID A FOR A PENNY, BUT YOU DIDN'T SAY B FOR A POUND. A question that is likely to provoke pro-Europeans (and maybe even some Eurosceptics) - so that includes me (I'm also pro-European - I want Europe based on Christianity, Roman Law and Common Law traditions, and Greek philosophy): SPOT THE DIFFERENCE: which one of these countries is more pro-European? 1. "Greece's defence minister threatens to send migrants including Jihadists to Western Europe" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/islamic-state/11459675/Greeces-defence-minister-threatens-to-send-migrants-including-jihadists-to-Western-Europe.html ________________________________________________________________________ 2. "Italy demands EU nations share burden of migrant arrivals" https://www.ft.com/content/98fb484c-5c14-11e7-9bc8-8055f264aa8b?mhq5j=e1 _______________________________________________________________________ 3. Poland says: "Where are you heading, Europe? Rise from your knees and from your lethargy [...] you are going hand in hand with those who point this weapon against Europe, against all of us?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSiFqbGONbs _______________________________________________________________________ Admittedly there are no friends or enemies in foreign politics, but only common interest: however, that doesn't mean that there are no lunatics. Greece and Italy: we are f...d, so no we want you to be f...d too. Is this friendly attitude, is this sane? ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// P.S. "then those decisions will have to be implemented by force" - Martin Schulz, a true democrat, speaking of V4. P.S.II. In case some naive people on this blog think that this is about people escaping from wars, think of this: Austria implemented the same "refugee" policies as Hungary, yet the Carolingians only want to put sanctions on V4. How strange. Or maybe they know that Austria joning V4 will mean the END for M i t t e l-E u r o p a/G r o ß r a u m. As the "Berliner Zeitung" wrote, "Poland and Hungary are more dangerous than ISIS". To paraphrase President Chirac's words in Warsaw, Germany (not to confuse with all Germans - though Chirac wasn't so subtle in his statement to Poles) has just missed the opportunity to shut. If they think that they are dangerous to German elites now, I wonder what they will do if Poland - with the US backing - demands trillions of euros in WWII reparations (Warsaw destruction alone was estimated at nearly $900bn). /////////////////////////////////////////////////////// P.S.II. D a v i d Mc W i l l i a m s - you say that Ireland should say that we will never leave the EU. I bet you don't play poker and you don't play chess; if you did, you'd know that Ireland should say n o t h i n g and keep the suspence, like in a Hitchcock movie - because as the great Siegbert Tarrasch said, a threat is more dangerous than its execution. You rightly say that Ireland is the Atlantic country. You rightly say that the US investment (employing 150,000 people in Ireland directly and much more indirectly) is here because of the access to the EU single market. You are not quite consequent though in not concluding that if Ireland wants to keep the US investment and Poland is now US's most important partner in Europe (as you actually partly predicted a few years ago, though not talking specifically about the US, and mistaking then Polish overpriced weapons purchases from the US and hostile takeovers also known as the "50% Polish debt write-off"), then the correct inference on your side should be that if Ireland wants to have friendly Trump, Ireland should keep closer relations with Poland than she keeps with the Carolingians (apart from the UK and Finland, two other countries important for the US - plus Baltic states and Slovenia, of course) - and that every time there is a conflict with power brokers in Europe - Germany, these countries should support each other in the EU. I have another proposal: why not throw Germany out of the EU (unless they vote for reasonable politicians), and devolve back to EC? Fantasy? I'm not sure if any EU country has broken so many EU laws as Germany, starting from Maastricht Treaty, EU rules on subsidies, nomen omen environmental laws (while other countries have been reducing CO2 emissions, their have been rising - Coldblow, I know that this is all bilge anyway, but it made Merkel red in her face when this came out during the summit in which Mr Trump said nyet to that, and first and foremost - Germany and Luxembourg, not Ireland, are Europe's prime destinations for money laundering due to their d e l i b e r a t e laws. Imagine that the whole Europe initiated legal procedures on those breaches; simultaneously with Poland, Czech Republic, Greece and a few other countries demanding war reparations, Mr Trump would back it out, and as a result, Germany would either be thrown out of the EU - and the EU would go back to the pre-Maastricht formula - or the German people would revolt and elect reasonable politcians, like the Poles did (France will just delicately withdraw and listen to the strongest). Because so far, the German people have only been electing lunatics; the Austrians woke up a little bit, and the Germans are also waking up - but unlike Austria, they don't have free media - including social media (and mark my words: I know most of you don't believe that noone can be worse than Merkel - including on the so called "refugees" - but believe you me: MARTIN SCHULZ CAN).
              Father Involvement in the Early Years   
    The institution of fatherhood is in transition, as men try to balance being active and involved fathers with meeting the demands of the workplace. This book explores these challenges in the context of crossnational policies and the influences of those policies on the daily childcare practices of fathers. Highlighting the increasing interest in the enduring impact of early life experience, the contributors present the most up-to-date research on father involvement with young, preschool-age children in six countries—Finland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States—offering insight into the effects of different national policies related to parenting in general and fathers in particular.

    Sebuah gua adalah sebuah lubang alami di tanah yang cukup besar dan dalam. Beberapa ilmuwan menjelaskan bahwa dia harus cukup besar sehingga beberapa bagian di dalamnya tidak menerima cahaya matahari; namun dalam penggunaan umumnya pengertiannya cukup luas, termasuk perlindungan batu, gua laut.
    Karena gua baru terus dijelajahi, oleh karena itu rekor ukuran gua terus diperbaharui.
    Sistem gua terbesar (dalam jarak) adalah Gua Mammoth (Kentucky, Amerika Serikat) dengan panjang 579 km. Rekor ini sepertinya tidak akan dilewati dalam waktu dekat karena gua terpanjang kedua yang diketahui berada di Pechera Optymistychna di Ukraina dengan panjang 214 km.
    Pada tahun 2005, gua terdalam yang diketahui (diukur dari tempat masuk sampai titik
    terendahnya) adalah Gua Voronya (Abkhazia, Georgia, dengan kedalaman 2.080 m. Ini merupakan gua pertama yang pernah dijelajahi sampai kedalaman lebih dari 2 km. Gua pertama dengan kedalaman lebih dari 1 km yang pernah dijelajahi adalah Gouffre Berger yang terkenal di Perancis. Gouffre Mirolda - Lucien Bouclier gua di Perancis dan Lamprechtsofen Vogelschacht di Austria merupakan gua ke-dua dan ke-tiga terdalam dengan kedalaman 1733 m dan 1632 m, berurutan. Rekor ini telah berganti beberapa kali dalam tahun-tahun terakhir.
    Rekor kedalaman gua menjorok ke bawah dipegang oleh gua Vrtoglavica di Slovenia dengan 603m, diikuti oleh gua Velebit di gunung Velebit di Kroasia dengan kedalaman 553m.
    Gua terbesar yang pernah ditemui adalah Sarawak Chamber, di Taman Nasional Gunung Mulu (Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia), dengan luas 600 m x 400 m dan ketinggian 80 m.

              Cross-Country Individual Participant Analysis of 4.1 Million Singleton Births in 5 Countries with Very High Human Development Index...   
    Background: Preterm birth is the most common single cause of perinatal and infant mortality, affecting 15 million infants worldwide each year with global rates increasing. Understanding of risk factors remains poor, and preventive interventions have only limited benefit. Large differences exist in preterm birth rates across high income countries. We hypothesized that understanding the basis for these wide variations could lead to interventions that reduce preterm birth incidence in countries with high rates. We thus sought to assess the contributions of known risk factors for both spontaneous and provider-initiated preterm birth in selected high income countries, estimating also the potential impact of successful interventions due to advances in research, policy and public health, or clinical practice. Methods: We analyzed individual patient-level data on 4.1 million singleton pregnancies from four countries with very high human development index (Czech Republic, New Zealand, Slovenia, Sweden) and one comparator U.S. state (California) to determine the specific contribution (adjusting for confounding effects) of 21 factors. Both individual and population-attributable preterm birth risks were determined, as were contributors to cross-country differences. We also assessed the ability to predict preterm birth given various sets of known risk factors. Findings: Previous preterm birth and preeclampsia were the strongest individual risk factors of preterm birth in all datasets, with odds ratios of 4.6–6.0 and 2.8–5.7, respectively, for individual women having those characteristics. In contrast, on a population basis, nulliparity and male sex were the two risk factors with the highest impact on preterm birth rates, accounting for 25–50% and 11–16% of excess population attributable risk, respectively (p < 0.001). The importance of nulliparity and male sex on population attributable risk was driven by high prevalence despite low odds ratios for individual women. More than 65% of the total aggregated risk of preterm birth within each country lacks a plausible biologic explanation, and 63% of difference between countries cannot be explained with known factors; thus, research is necessary to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of preterm birth and, hence, therapeutic intervention. Surprisingly, variation in prevalence of known risk factors accounted for less than 35% of the difference in preterm birth rates between countries. Known risk factors had an area under the curve of less than 0.7 in ROC analysis of preterm birth prediction within countries. These data suggest that other influences, as yet unidentified, are involved in preterm birth. Further research into biological mechanisms is warranted. Conclusions: We have quantified the causes of variation in preterm birth rates among countries with very high human development index. The paucity of explicit and currently identified factors amenable to intervention illustrates the limited impact of changes possible through current clinical practice and policy interventions. Our research highlights the urgent need for research into underlying biological causes of preterm birth, which alone are likely to lead to innovative and efficacious interventions.

              The Summer of Their Discontent   
    Given that Europeans are ever so much more sophisticated than Americans they are, this summer, suffering an invasion of immigrant refugees. This time, it’s Italy and Spain that are taking the brunt of the invasion. For the record, the flow of immigrants to the United States over the past six months has dropped precipitously.

    Lucianne brings us up to speed (via Maggie’s Farm):

    Italy’s migrant welcome centers are in a state of “collapse” as huge waves of African migrants take advantage of the temperate climate to make the crossing from Libya to the Italian peninsula. On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation. Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the year, but that was prior to the latest.

    As for the South of Spain, aka Andalusia, the same scene is playing out. The Daily Mail has the story:

    Last week, 1,025 migrants arrived illegally on the Andalusia coast, where millions of Britons holiday each year in the famous Costa resorts. Every day, more come on what is now the fastest-growing migrant sea route from Africa to Europe.

    Italian authorities are now threatening to refuse entry to any refugee boats coming from Libya:


    Italy has threatened to close its ports to aid groups rescuing migrants off Libya's coast as it struggles to cope with the highest rate of rescues this year, officials said.

    The country's representative to the EU, Maurizio Massari, said the situation 'has become unsustainable' as it emerged 10,000 refugees have tried to cross the Mediterranean in the last four days.

    Italy's former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said citizens were 'exasperated' and a fresh strategy was needed.

    The Italians want other European nations to share the pain. We shall see what Chancellor Merkel and President Macron say about that. For now, a group of lesser Central European nations has decided to close their borders to all further refugees.

    Legal Insurrection (via Maggie’s Farm) reprints the story from ABC:

    Defense officials of six Central European countries and the Balkans have pledged close cooperation in tackling migration with all possible means including use of armed forces.

    The countries — Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia — have created a grouping called the Central European Defense Cooperation and want to be a role model for the entire European Union.

    Among the group’s goals is that all migrants who want to apply for asylum in EU countries have to do it in centers outside the bloc.

    Austrian Defense Minister Hans Peter Doskozil said after a meeting in Prague on Monday that his country has been preparing a detailed action plan of cooperation for the six whose military forces will train in a joint drill in next few months.

    Naturally, EU authorities are trying to punish nations who are refusing to accept their fair share of refugees. National Review reports on this side of the story:

    The European Union announced this week that it would begin proceedings to punish Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic for their refusal to accept refugees and migrants under a 2015 scheme the E.U. commission created. The mission’s aim was to relieve Greece and Italy of the burden from migrant waves arriving from the Middle East and Africa, largely facilitated by European rescues of migrants in the Mediterranean.

    The conflict between the EU and these three nations of the Visegrád Group is not just about the authority the EU can arrogate to itself when facing an emergency (one largely of its own making), but about the character of European government and society in the future.

    According to the Telegraph, it’s just beginning:

    Europe could face a new wave of migrant arrivals this summer, a leaked German government report has warned. Up to 6.6m people are waiting in countries around the Mediterranean to cross into Europe, according to details of the classified report leaked to Bild newspaper.

    They include more than 2.5m in North Africa waiting to attempt the perilous crossing by boat. Angela Merkel’s government has not commented on the report, which the newspaper says was marked for internal use only.

    There are fears of a dramatic rise in arrivals as the summer weather turns favourable for sea crossings. Growing numbers of migrants are known to be attempting to reach Europe by boat in the wake of the closure of the Balkan land route last year.

    Back in the realm of the crude Americans, the six Muslim nation travel ban will take effect today.

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

              Tribute to Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik on Czech FDC   
    Hommage à l'architecte slovène Jože Plečnik sur FDC tchèque

    Le 7 juin 2017, la poste tchèque a mis en circulation plusieurs timbres dont un consacré à l'architecte slovène Jože Plečnik (1872-1957) à l'occasion du 60ème anniversaire de sa mort.
    C'est ce timbre (32 CZK), conçu par Jan Kavan et gravé par Miloš Ondráček, qui figure sur le FDC officiel ci-dessous (tirage : 3500), avec TAD de Prague représentant un dessin d'aigle par Plečnik conçu pour une sculpture au sommet d'une colonne. Merci beaucoup Bret !
    La gravure sur cette enveloppe montre une amphore en bronze conçue par Plečnik ainsi qu'un aperçu d'une canopée soutenue par des sculptures de taureaux, en référence à l'escalier menant aux jardins du sud du château de Prague.
    Jože Plečnik, architecte et urbaniste, a travaillé principalement à Ljubljana, sa ville natale, mais aussi à Vienne, Prague ou Belgrade.
    On June 7, 2017, the Czech Post issued several stamps, one of which being dedicated to the Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik (1872-1957) on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his death.
    It is that stamp (32 CZK), designed by Jan Kavan and engraved by Miloš Ondráček, which appears on the official FDC below (print run : 3,500), with a cancellation from Prague representing an eagle drawing by Plečnik designed for a sculpture at the top of a column. Thank you very much Bret!
    The engraving on this envelope shows a bronze amphora designed by Plečnik as well as an outline of a canopy supported by sculptures of bulls referring to the Bull Staircase leading to the southern gardens of Prague Castle
    Jože Plečnik, architect and city planner, worked mainly in Ljubljana, his hometown, but also in Vienna, Prague or Belgrade.


    Dans les années 1920, le président tchécoslovaque T.G. Masaryk invite Jože Plečnik à Prague pour travailler à la restauration du château de Prague et de la résidence présidentielle du château de Lány.
    Un portrait de Plečnik figure sur ce timbre ainsi qu'un fragment du plan du château de Prague et en particulier les jardins qu'il a aménagé : Na Baště dans la partie supérieure et Rajská zahrada et les jardins de Na Valech en bas.
    Plečnik a redessiné ces jardins et installé de nombreuses petites sculptures et objets d'art.
    A noter que ce plan se poursuit sur la vignette centrale du bloc-feuillet (2 timbres) dans lequel ce timbre a été imprimé, avec également une vue de l'église du Sacré-Cœur-de-Jésus à Prague, érigée selon le projet de Plečnik entre 1929 et 1932.
    In the 1920s, Czechoslovak President T.G. Masaryk invited Jože Plečnik to Prague to work on the restoration of Prague Castle and the presidential residence of Lány Castle.
    A portrait of Plečnik appears on that stamp as well as a fragment of the plan of the Prague Castle and in particular the gardens he laid out : Na Baště in the upper part and Rajská zahrada and Na Valech gardens below.
    Plečnik has redesigned these gardens and installed many small sculptures and works of art.
    To note that this plan continues on the central coupon of the souvenir sheet (2 stamps) in which this stamp was printed, with also a view of the Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord in Prague, erected according to a Plečnik's project between 1929 and 1932.


    Bret a enfin eu la gentillesse de m'envoyer le feuillet commémoratif Premier Jour ci-dessus concernant ce même timbre.
    A noter que la poste slovène a également rendu hommage à Jože Plečnik en particulier avec un timbre émis en 2002.
    Bret was finally kind enough to send me the commemorative First Day sheet above regarding that same stamp.
    It should be noted that the Slovenian Post also paid tribute to Jože Plečnik in particular with a stamp issued in 2002.

    La constitucion de 1961


    • La Constitución de 1961 estaba dividida en cuatro partes.
    El preámbulo donde se invoca la protección de Dios y se exalta al Libertador Simon Bolivar y a los "grandes servidores de la patria".
    La parte dogmática en la cual se establecen como pilares la democracia, la independencia y el carácter de forma federal del Estado venezolano, entre otros;
    La parte orgánica, que constaba de doce títulos para un total de 252 artículos;
    y las disposiciones transitorias compuestas por 23 disposiciones.
    • Sólo se reconocía como idioma oficial el castellano
    • El Estado venezolano se divide en: Estados, el Distrito Federal, Territorios Federales y las Dependencias Federales.
    • Los Estados se dividen en Distritos y estos en Municipios.
    • No existía la doble nacionalidad, por lo tanto el venezolano que obtuviese otra nacionalidad perdía automáticamente la nacionalidad venezolana.
    • Por primera vez en la historia constitucional venezolana no se hace mención al nombre o número de Estados que componen el país, para evitar hacer reformas constitucionales respecto a éste tema y regirlo por medio de una Ley Orgánica de división político-territorial.
    LA UTOPIA:
    --ese más allá posible-- ha de ser un instrumento decisivo para proyectar las visiones, el entusiasmo y las conductas mucho más lejos de lo que aportan los magros instrumentos del presente. La recreación de la utopía está a la orden del día. Pero ella no será mera especulación. Como siempre, guardará relaciones con el entorno humano en que se produce, y con sus necesidades. Mas ahora enfrenta la sagacidad, los recursos y la acción intencionada de los opresores, por una parte, y por otra debe engarzar las vivencias y los sueños, satisfacer el espíritu y el protagonismo de los que hasta ayer eran masa pasiva o telón de fondo. Retomemos a José Martí, este proveedor de futuro, sempiterno subversivo, para guiarnos bien contra todas las colonizaciones, incluidas las espirituales que pretenden hacernos cómplices de la dominación. Para volver a interpretar el mundo desde nuestra América y para prefigurar su porvenir, siempre con afán de cambio, como hizo él, ahora que deben multiplicarse los intérpretes y ser muchos millones los actores que conozcan y asuman las interpretaciones. Es urgente recuperar la iniciativa intelectual. En realidad el pensamiento sólo es válido si logra elevarse sobre sus condiciones de producción, y será más fructífero si es capaz de influir sobre ellas

    GUAYANA Y SU AUTOPIALa guerra de guerrillas es una táctica militar de conflictos armados consistente en hostigar al enemigo en su propio terreno con destacamentos irregulares y mediante ataques rápidos y sorpresivos, voladuras de instalaciones, puentes y caminos o secuestros de armas y provisiones. Se utiliza con frecuencia en situaciones de guerra asimétrica que, gracias a su movilidad, a su fácil dispersión en pequeños grupos y a su habilidad para desaparecer entre la población civil, resultan muy difíciles de neutralizar. Algunas clasificaciones de conflictos, como la utilizada por el Departamento de Defensa de Estados Unidos, dividen las guerras según varios criterios, entre ellos el del tipo del enemigo a combatir. Siguiendo este criterio los conflictos armados pueden agruparse en Conflictos de Alta Intensidad o guerras convencionales (aquellas donde el enemigo es otro ejército, mejor o peor armado que el propio, pero ejército con cuarteles, centros de mando y territorio que defender), Conflictos de Media Intensidad o guerra de guerrillas (los realizados por grupos paramilitares sostenidos, pobremente armados, pero que controlan ciertas regiones de difícil acceso y con el apoyo tácito de la población directa o por los poderes electos a través de sus ejércitos) y por último los Conflictos de Baja Intensidad y también podría establecerse cierto grado de paralelismo con los movimientos terroristas (realizada por pequeños grupos que no controlan territorio y a veces son apoyados por una parte de la población -matanzas indiscriminadas contra la población civil- o por el contrario por una amplia mayoría contra los poderes establecidos, fuerzas del orden público, etc. o combinado).
    En los ejércitos modernos, estos ataques son llamados "operaciones de comandos" si los realizan tropas regulares. El comando es un soldado o un grupo de soldados entrenados y armados en un ejército regular que realiza operaciones de comando audaces acciones en campo enemigo. Los guerrilleros también pueden actuar en relación con el ejército regular; pero son, normalmente milicias integradas por los civiles.

    Las Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN) fueron la organización guerrillera creada por el Partido Comunista de Venezuela (PCV) en 1962, para dar forma a los nacientes grupos rebeldes que empezaban a operar en el país para derrocar por la fuerza al gobierno de Rómulo Betancourt. Según el ex oficial de la inteligencia cubana Ulises Estrada, la creación de las FALN se enmarcó en una política de apoyo de Fidel Castro a los movimientos armados de Latinoamérica.

    Exactamente, porque hay "movimientos insurgentes" pacíficos, es que el nombre original es el más correcto, "movimientos guerrilleros", pero si gustas puedes dejar el de "insurgentes armados". Las formaciones paramilitares y contrainsurgentes, corresponden a otro fenómeno. Pueden estar toda clase de insurgentes de izquierda o derecha (como los Contra de Nicaragua), incluso aquellos sin ideología definida como los hay. Pero organizaciones paramilitares ilegales, organizadas desde las propias filas de algunos ejércitos (o policía), para combatir la insurgencia no puede estar en la misma categoría, pues no se rebelan o levantan contra nada, al contrario, nacen para defender el Estado. Si bien, Palestina no es un Estado reconocido oficialmente por la comunidad internacional, si es un Estado en formación que controla una porción de territorio, y por ende lo correcto es señalar que dichos grupos pertenecen al Territorio Palestino y no al israelí. Poner a Yugoslavia y Serbia juntos es como poner a la España de Franco y luego a la España contemporánea (o en el caso de Francia a la 4° y 5° Republicas), pues una es la sucesora de la otra, a diferencia de Croacia, Eslovenia, Macedonia, Bosnia y Montenegro, Serbia nunca se independizó de nada, solo cambio de nombre. Poner la bandera en el objetivo, es innecesario y honestamente se ve bastante desordenado. En general, creo debiera señalarse el estado (con bandera incluida) que actualmente controla el territorio en el cual funciona, o funcionó dicho movimiento. Si no, se tiende a la confusión. Imagina en una lista de ciudades si pusieramos todos los estados que la han controlado, que pasaría con Vilna o Danzig, por ejemplo. Saludos--Jcestepario (discusión) 16:58 24 ene 2009 (UTC)



    Antes de la llegada de los europeos, la región de la actual GUAYANA fue habitada por tribus arawak y caribes, quienes la llamaron Guayana, que significa "tierra de muchas aguas".
    Los holandeses comenzaron a explorar e instalarse en Guyana a finales del siglo XVI, seguido de los ingleses. Ambos comenzaron a comerciar con los pueblos amerindios en el alto. La Compañía Holandesa de las Indias Occidentales estableció una fortaleza en Kyk-over-al en 1616-1621 en lo que ellos llamaron el Condado de Essequibo. Tentativas de asentarse en el interior fracasaron, y los europeos se establecieron en la costa a mediados de los años 1700, donde crearon plantaciones trabajadas por esclavos africanos. Las cosechas principales eran el café, el algodón, y el azúcar, convirtiéndose éste en la cosecha principal. La calidad del suelo era pobre, pese a todo. Los esclavos, conducidos por Cuffy, (el héroe nacional de Guyana), se sublevaron en 1763 en lo que se conoció como la rebelión de los esclavos de Berbice. Los holandeses se establecieron en Guayana en el siglo XVI, pero su control terminó cuando los británicos se conviertieron en los gobernadores de facto en 1796. Las colonias de Esequibo, Demerara, y Berbice fueron cedidas oficialmente al Reino Unido en el tratado Anglo-Holandés de 1814 y en el Congreso de Viena en 1815. En 1831 se consolidaron como Guayana Británica.
     
    Seguido de la abolición
    Fonteras de la Guayana Británica en 1896.
     de la esclavitud en 1834, miles de trabajadores contratados fueron traídos a Guyana para reemplazar a los esclavos en las plantaciones de caña de azúcar, principalmente de la India, pero también de Portugal y China. Algunos sostienen que la población de hoy, donde hay dos tipos de guayaneses, los que son derivados de los esclavos africanos (afro-guyaneses), y aquellos que derivan de los sirvientes indios contratados (indoguyaneses). No obstante, la cultura guayanesa es homogénea en muchas formas, debido a la historia compartida, el matrimonio mixto, y otros factores.

              Finding Slovenian wine is worth the effort   
    Generic wine tastings is the name we wine trade folks give to events that focus on a particular country. The likes of Wines of Australia or Wines of Argentina are typically vast affairs, in substantial venues with an impressive gaggle of importers, sommeliers and journalists making their way from wine to wine. Tastings organised for emerging countries tend to have a more modest feel and it is noticeable that attendees tend to be those looking for something new with less journalists about because there are typically fewer wines with representation in the UK.

    Bea Lorenzin: quando le falsità e l’ignoranza sono pericolose

    Marcello Pamio – 19 giugno 2017

    Siamo purtroppo abituati noi italiani come popolo ad assistere attoniti alla manifesta ignoranza e falsità di governanti, ministri e parlamentari. Dalla nascita della Prima Repubblica alla Seconda ai residui che rimangono oggi. Finché si tratta di tangenti, corruzione e quant’altro si può anche chiudere un occhio, la carne dell’uomo è debole e facilmente corruttibile per natura, ma quando di mezzo c’è la salute di milioni di bambini non è possibile fare nessuno sconto.

    Il Sistema ha messo a capo del Ministero della Salute una persona non solo arrogante e strafottente, ma soprattutto ignorante e purtroppo per noi anche falsa. Forse nessuno dei segretari e sottosegretari ha avvisato la diplomata al classico che se dici una cosa ne rimane traccia nel mondo cybernetico, e se quella sparata è una balla allora rimarrà registrata per sempre.

    Tralascio le fregnacce e le squallide figuracce che la Lorenzin ha fatto in numerose occasioni, per esempio a riguardo della Legge 194, o sul Fertility Day, perché quelle certamente molto più gravi e lesive dell’intelligenza, della dignità e della moralità sono quelle sui vaccini.

    Alla conferenza stampa trasmessa in televisione la ministra se ne esce con una notizia bomba, che solo lei sa: «le persone adulte, soprattutto gli anziani, continuano a morire di tetano». A dir poco incredibile: le spore del tetano stanno sterminando i vecchi e l'Inps ringrazia...

    Mentre in trasmissione a La7 ha avuto l’ardire di dare sfoggio alla sua faraonica sapienza, direi più unica che rara, a proposito dei virus: «quando ci sono dei buchi i virus camminano, saltellano».

    Forse i buchi non stanno nella copertura vaccinale ma più nello specifico a livello encefalico…

    Il 22 ottobre 2014 durate la trasmissione RAI «Porta a Porta» la Lorenzin ha dichiarato: «ricordo che solo di morbillo, di epidemia di morbillo a Londra, cioè in Inghilterra, lo scorso anno (2013) sono morti 270 bambini». Sorvoliamo anche sulla preparazione del giornalista filo-governativo Bruno Vespa (il quale come una bandierina sventola a seconda di dove tira il vento) che sentendo i dati snocciolati dalla ministra non l’ha incalzata per approfondire l’argomento, in fin dei conti 270 bambini morti a Londra potrebbe essere considerata una notizia giornalistica piuttosto allarmante, o no?

    Esattamente un anno dopo, il 22 ottobre 2015 alla trasmissione «Piazza Pulita» sempre lei se ne esce con la seguente frase: «di morbillo si muore, in Europa! C’è stata una epidemia di morbillo a Londra lo scorso anno (2014) e sono morti più di 200 bambini».

    Incredibile: i bambini sterminati dal pericolosissimo virus del morbillo sono calati a 200.

    Secondo le dichiarazioni di una ministra della salute della Repubblica italiana, in Gran Bretagna i bambini morti per morbillo nel 2013 sarebbero stati 270, nel 2014 circa 200. Quindi in due anni 470 bambini morti per morbillo in Inghilterra di cui la metà a Londra?

    Se il cervello non è un optional: una tale notizia, se fosse stata vera, sarebbe stata amplificata da tutti i giornali del mondo con tanto di titoli a caratteri cubitali. Come mai nessun articolo? Niente di niente.

    Vediamo invece quali sono i dati ufficiali pubblicati dal sito Public Health England[1], cioè il sito governativo di Salute Pubblica inglese. Titolo: «Measles deaths by age group: 1980 to 2013 (ONS data)».

    Nel 2013 c’è stato un solo morto, aveva 25 anni e la causa non è stato il morbillo ma le complicanze polmonari.

    Anche in questo ambito la povera ministra da sfoggio di una non-cultura medica di difficile raggiungimento (e allo stesso tempo pericolosa): non si muore per il virus del morbillo ma per le complicanze (magari respiratorie) che possono insorgere.

    Infine c’è la gaffe su Gardaland.

    La Bea nazionale, per non farsi mancare nulla, citando una fantomatica circolare estera dichiara in televisione di non andare a Gardaland perché «c’è un basso tasso di immunizzazione per il morbillo». In pratica ci sarebbe il rischio di epidemia!

    La circolare sarebbe arrivata da «un paese confinante col Veneto». Questo paese prima era l’Austria poi si scopre essere la Slovenia. La smaronatura arriva dal direttore del quotidiano «La Verità» Maurizio Belpietro il quale ricostruisce le origini della bufala o per meglio dire della Fake News (balla di Stato). In pratica «un giornale di Lubiana ha scritto che bisogna prestare attenzione alle gite scolastiche (…) E’ capitato a 14 persone che hanno visitato una mostra a Nova Gorica». Il cervello superfino che dirige il Ministero più importante oltre a non sapere nulla di salute non conosce nemmeno la geografia, confondendo la Slovenia col lago di Garda…

    Immediato il commento dell’assessore alla sanità del Veneto Luca Coletto, il quale all’Ansa smentisce dicendo che «non c’è un’epidemia di morbillo ed i casi sono in diminuzione. Chiediamo quindi che ci venga data tale circolare; potrebbe invece trattarsi piuttosto - ha commentato - di una ‘epidemia politica’»…

    Coletto ha giocato facile, sparando sulla Croce Rossa...

    Dall’altra la replica anche di Aldo Maria Vigevani, CEO di Gardaland: «Gardaland tiene a chiarire che, all’interno del Parco, non c’è stato e non c’è alcun problema specifico legato alle vaccinazioni. Tra l'altro non ci risulta sia stata divulgata da alcun Paese estero una circolare che dissuada dalla visita a Gardaland».

    Se fossimo negli Stati Uniti le false dichiarazioni in tv della ministra della salute in più occasioni e su più argomenti sarebbero più che sufficienti per un impeachment e per rispedirla a casa - finalmente per noi e un po’ meno per i figli - a fare la mamma (e moglie di Alessandro Picardi, il direttore delle relazioni istituzionali della RAI) a tempo pieno…

    PS: Consiglio alla Lorenzin di scusarsi con i dirigenti del parco e con tutti gli italiani e di andare a far visita a Gardaland e provare l’attrazione «Ramses: il risveglio. Armati di coraggio e sfida la grande ira del faraone.

    La maledizione incombe su di te!». Però una volta uscita dalla giostra si ricordi sempre che la grande ira e la maledizione non è del faraone ma di milioni di italiani, estremamente incazzati per le falsità e le scellerate politiche intraprese dal ministero ai danni dei bambini.

    «Ci sono paure che non devono essere alimentate ma invece devono essere sedate»

    Ministra Lorenzin, durante una intervista a Sky TG24

    Capito? Le paure che le mamme hanno di far inoculare 12 vaccini più tutti i richiami ai loro piccoli sono insensate «paure che devono essere sedate». Come intende sedare le ingiustificate paure delle mamme cara ministra? Con un decreto legge urgente che imponga a tutti il cloroformio?

    Israelispeak is the way Israelis and the Israeli media use Hebrew. Behind the literal meaning, there’s an additional web of suggestion, doublespeak, and cultural innuendo that too often gets lost in translation. Every Friday, we reveal what is really being said.

    Israel is more corrupt than two-thirds of the other member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index, compiled by anti-corruption group Transparency International, found that Israel fared better than fellow OECD countries Portugal, Hungary, and Turkey, but worse than Chile and Slovenia. “The list of corruption investigations in Israel in recent years reads like a Who’s Who of the political elite,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “It includes every prime minister of the last 14 years, two previous presidents, two past Jerusalem mayors, numerous Cabinet ministers and one recently convicted felon who is still serving in the Knesset, or parliament.”

              What next for Eastern Europe?   
    While President Trump tweets, the United States and Russia drift towards war over Syria, and the new Thirty Years War between Shi'ite and Sunni continues on many fronts, another critical drama is playing out in the Eastern half of the European continent.  I find it particularly interesting because it is a replay of the drama I described about 40 years ago in my first book, Economic Diplomacy and the Origins of the Second World War, which is linked at left and available as an e-book.

    For the first few centuries of the modern era the peoples of Eastern Europe lived under large empires.  The Ottoman Empire had reached Europe in the 15th century and eventually included what is now Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Rumania, some of the nations of the former Yugoslavia, and Hungary.  The Tsar of Russia ruled what are now the Baltic States and, by the 19th century, Poland.  The Holy Roman Empire--which in 1806 became the Austrian Empire, and in 1867 the Austro-Hungarian Empire--included parts of Poland and the present-day Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia and Slovenia.  All these peoples, to varying degrees, developed nationalist movements during the 19th century.

    The enormous strain of the First World War proved too much not only for the Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires, but also for the German Empire.  The Allies--France, Britain, Italy and eventually the US as well--sponsored the claims of some of the national movements in their territory.  In January 1918, in his Fourteen Points, Woodrow Wilson endorsed an independent Poland and autonomy (not independence) for the peoples of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires.  When those nations collapsed ten months later, various national movements proclaimed new states.

    As the brilliant but eccentric English historian A. J. P. Taylor noted in 1961, the post-1919 settlement in Eastern Europe reflected the astonishing fact that both Germany and Russia had been defeated. Only that allowed for the re-creation of an independent Poland, the new states of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia,a larger Rumania, independent Poland and Finland, and the three Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.  It seemed in 1918-9 that things might go even further and that Ukraine might become independent as well, but the Bolsheviks managed to secure control over it in the Russian civil war.  These states were economically and politically weak.  Nearly all of them initially formed some kind of democratic government, encouraged down that path by the western powers.

    In the short run, several of the new states--Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Romania--were threatened by Hungary, which had lost huge territories at the peace conference, while in the long run Czechoslovakia and Poland had to worry about a resurgent Germany. France, eager to cement its status as the leading power in Europe, offered all those states some kind of alliance.  Clearly the French would have trouble defending them once the Germans or Russians regained their military strength, but the French were counting on keeping the Germans weak.  The alliances faced no serious threats until after the rise of Hitler.

    By then all these countries had undergone profound political changes.  While all of them had begun as democracies, only Czechoslovakia, Finland and the Baltic States were still electing their governments by the early 1930s--the rest had come under some form of authoritarian rule.  The agricultural states among them, as I showed in my book, came under German influence after 1935 because the Germans, desperate for food, offered them a market for their produce.  In 1938 Hitler managed to destroy Czechoslovakia when the French abandoned their alliance.  In 1939-40, Hitler and Stalin concluded the Nazi-Soviet Pact. They partitioned Poland and the Soviets incorporated the Baltic States.  Hungary and Rumania became allies of Hitler while Yugoslavia was occupied by the Italians and the Nazis.  In 1945,  the whole region (except Finland) came under Soviet occupation and the USSR installed Communist governments.

    The collapse of the USSR in 1991--77 years after the start of the First World War--started this process over again.  Once again, as in 1919, the entire region was liberated from foreign rule.  This time the proliferation of new states has gone much further, with Czechoslovakia and former Yugoslavia giving way to no less than 8 new states, and not only the Baltic States, but also Ukraine and Belarus, becoming independent.  Once again the new states established various forms of democracy.  And once again, powerful nations from outside the region offered them alliances. NATO, led by the US, offered membership to virtually every new state in the region, including the Baltic states--after initially promising the new Russian government not to do so.  The EU also offered many of them membership, choosing to ignore the enormous economic and cultural differences that still divide Europe somewhere around the frontiers of Germany and Poland.

    Germany is no longer an imperialist nation, although it leads the EU and played a key role in its enlargement.  Russia once again went through a chaotic period but by 2000 it was recovering its strength under Vladimir Putin.  He is clearly determined to reassert Russian influence--if not more--over many of the states of the former USSR.  Belarus lost any real independence very quickly, and Putin is actively contesting the West in a bid for influence in Ukraine, and using the Russian military at the border to do so. He also very obviously has designs on the Baltic states, which are extremely vulnerable militarily.  And while Putin cannot offer these states markets the way the Germans did 80 years ago, he can provide them with energy.

    And once again, democracy has proven fragile in Eastern Europe.  Rightist parties now lead the governments of Hungary, Poland, and some of the other states of the region. The governments of the Czech Republic and Slovakia are weak and subject to corruption and outside influence.  These nations face a choice between  western-style democracy--which is having enormous problems in the west--and Russian-style authoritarianism.  It is not at all clear which path they shall take.

    Only a gigantic war settled the question of Eastern Europe's future 80 years ago.  Such a war does not seem in prospect now, but limited wars, such as a lightning Russian occupation of one or more Baltic states, cannot be ruled out.  Russian and NATO aircraft are constantly confronting one another in the region.  The Russians also seem to be using cyberwar against Ukraine, and they may use it elsewhere. To reach a new equilibrium diplomatically would require a level of statesmanship which is not apparent on the world scene.  Nearly thirty years ago, when the Soviet empire collapsed, I commented frequently that this time, Eastern Europe had taken a new shape without a new world war.  Now it seems that the process may involve a larger conflict--albeit of a possibly different kind.
              Eurovision Round Up: Semi-Final 1   

    It's finally time. The greatest event on the world calendar is finally with us. Granted, it was with Europe a couple of days ago, but it takes a long time for the ship with copies of the tapes to reach Australia. Tonight on SBS is Semi-Final 1. And I am here with the annual round up of this Semi-Final. Ten of the songs in tonight's show will go to the Final on Sunday night (AEST).

    Montenegro
    Thanks to the bondage women for their support in the Black Mountain's song tonight. Stefan did a pretty good job. Pity about the hair though. Obviously girl's hair is the thing in Montenegro. As are red handprints. Bit of a rock-type song, which has been quite popular of late. Not sure if Europe would really enjoy it though - the lead guitar did go off though. That was pleasing to hear. What wasn't pleasing to see was his face. Poor man.

    Israel usually has good looking men. Well that's what I've certainly seen in porn anyway. And look, I'm not complaining about Boaz's big arms. And he's only 20. Bless his soul. The voice could do with some work though. He just didn't quite sound that right. Not too funny really... as opposed to him singing in English. It's always entertaining to hear Europeans sing in English. There's something about hearing them make an r sound that tickles my funny bone.

    Crazy Radio has been trying to get into Eurovision for a while. Obviously they were judged on their looks. But their choreography is probably the best I've ever seen in Eurovision history. Nothing can beat old men bopping to music. And these men could even be mistaken for The Wiggles. It's great. It's also wonderful to see a song about veggies and scantly-clad women waving flags. I wonder if anything else of theirs is flapping...

    Pink eyeshadow used to be in fashion, I'm sure. Whether Geta has checked the latest catwalks or not I can't say, but man she painted it on. Big mistake. Big mistake to also be standing on a couch. Everyone always heard their mothers scream "Get the fuck off the couch! Couches are sitting on, not jumping on!" yet Geta obviously missed that part of her upbringing. But I suppose the couch does match the fact that this is lounge music, and hey, not too bad either. It just feels as though it is missing something. Oh no, there it was - the singing in English.

    Welcome to SM and Miodio. There is a reason why you were left in Italy on your own for so long. Couldn't they find a better-looking lead singer? Already it seems that black and white are the colours/shades for the evening, though this song did leave me in a bit of a blue mood. The old ghost-like figure was a nice touch. Diverted the eyes away from the singer for a touch. Pity he didn't seem all that strong with the vocals - he'll need a bit of practice if he gets through.

    Thank christ for a made-up language. And thank christ for a boiled lolly dress! You can always trust Belgium to bring us the crazy ESC entries. Nothing says fucking fantastic more than the use of the clarinet in a song. I'm enjoying this one immensely. And obviously the crowd is too. Joyous! And those tiny bowler hats are simply wonderful. A nice touch. Ooh Julissi...

    Huh? What? Angels? A male? That's a male? Now I'm confused. Not even 6 year old boys can get that high. Well, there's certainly a bulge there, so we can rule that option out. Bit of a crazy song, angels against the darkness. Impressive though and possibly quite a popular one. Has that Arabic feel but not completely overdone like some Soviet countries have done in the past. I quite liked it and the pyrotechnics helped the cause.

    I'm always a fan of bondage. I'm already hooked. And finally - true Eurovision! Costume changes, music one can dance to, wind machine ... it's all there as it should be. And hot men in black... on roller skates. Being lead on leashes. What more can you ask for? This could be a big disco hit. Enjoyable. One of the best so far!

    A stage of blondes, a perfect pop song and more windy hair - Eurovision continues. I don't think Maria would ever be lonely, neither would any of her back up singers. And of course that's based on her singing ability, which is quite good. I enjoyed this one. Pure pop and well crafted. I would've liked to have seen more cleavage. That might have helped win more votes.

    Isis Gee is quite a women. It's hard to work out if she's really really blonde, or really really tanned. Or is that dress really really blue? It is really really tight though. A beautiful ballad presented by Poland tonight, a typical ballad for the Contest and one that is sure to be a favourite of many. And the best thing about Miss Bright-Hair-Bright-Teeth-Dark-Skin is that she is quite a powerful singer. I could imagine Dicko, Marcia and Kyle's comments already...

    Ireland
    A puppet. Great. The only reason why I'm currently bopping is because of the music... and the fact that there are hot men dressed for the Mardi Gras. Extra points for that. It's quite an interesting song, and one that would probably do quite well if there was a human as the artist and not as the hand-up-the-arse. Extra points for the costumes - for the first time in history, orange, green and white have been used quite well in costumes. But it's good for the Irish to know they've got no hope of winning this year.

    Oh Casanova save me! Welcome back to Eurovision after the minor hiccup that was a turkey. And welcome to Andorra who have one of the favourites for this year's Contest. It is a fun one too. Nothing says fun more than someone wearing a hat which makes them look like a bee. The crazy dominatrix dress doesn't help the cause either. But she's enjoying it. And honestly, so am I.

    Ahhh a wedding. It's been a while. However, I would be distressed to find my brother hiding with my knickers. By looking at the two singers, I'm worried about their mental health. Maybe they were locked in a cellar for 20 years. As for the song, it's quite a catchy one. It has got quite a lot of parts all woven together and the spoken parts really set it off. Quite a fun song and one I will be listening to again.

    Hello good looking boys in black. I just need to cut the hair off. And then there's the actual singer, with rotating hips of steel. I wonder if there are men jumping at the chance to hold her tight? Back to the boys though - they need to visit Australia. Armenian dancer boys, if you're reading this, my bed's available. Qele, qele! I'd dance to this often. Woohoo!

    My bed's obviously not going to be big enough for the Armenian boys and now the Dutch boys. I suppose I could squeeze them in. I can say that I'm enjoying Hind's contribution to Eurovision this year. Very sultry woman. Very dark and brooding. I like it. Beautiful pop music too, which makes the whole thing so much better. Extra points for the hot boys and their overalls.

    Ever since Lordi, rock has been prominent. And it seems Finland think they need to capture Lordi again to win. Hey, I'm not complaining about seeing half naked rock men going like crazy on stage... but I'm not sure it's going to work again this year. It's not a bad song by any means and certainly not as heavy as Lordi's effort - it's something I'd listen to regularly. I wonder what their other stuff is like. But for Eurovision? I dunno.

I have a feeling that Dima would've sung far better in Russian than in English but still, he did a pretty good job. I am confused about the skater though. How he fits in is probably something that needs reading up on. Extra extra points for the opening of the shirt. No wonder the world loves Russian men...

    A HUGE favourite from Greece this year, and of course she doesn't disappoint. Secret Combination is Eurovision at its best - pop, synth beats, colourful dresses and (relatively) good looking male back up dancers. The huge-assed heart really tops the whole thing off. A crowd favourite and sure-fire hit. This one could do quite well in the Oz charts if it was to be released. Well done Greece. They obviously know how to party.

              Countdown to Eurovision: 21 days to go   

    Eurovision brings with it a multitude of people, faces, songs and stories. But never in its history did it have the broo-ha-ha that it had in 2002.

    Enter Slovenia and their entry for the year. From a country that's pretty religious and was under the power of Communism, the act that got the chance to represent the country was quite a novel and new one, and one that caused outrage from parliament to the streets. What was it? A group of three drag performers - Sestre. And even more, they were wearing the flight attendant uniforms of Slovenia's national airline.

    For the first time ever, drag had embraced the Eurovision stage. Of course there was the transsexual, Dana International, in 1998 but at least she somewhat looked feminine. And some might argue that other acts over he ESC's life had been dragesque, but it was a big leap for Eurovision.

    The bad thing is that the song was actually quite good... and actually sung by the men. Imagine Lucy Loosebox and good ol' Tabby actually singing while performing. Ears, bleeding.

    So judge for yourself - Slovenia's very own drag troupe, Sestre, with Samo ljubezen. Three weeks to go!







              Countdown to Eurovision: 68 days to go   

    Seven years ago, a woman in a yellow leather bodysuit took over the Eurovision stage in Copenhagen to perform her song Energy. She entered the contest as a favourite - the song highly-powered and very Eurovision. But in the end she came 7th. And to this day, people are still arguing that the song should've come in the top 3, if not been the winner.

    Why did she come 7th? It would have to have been what she was wearing. Not only did Nuša Derenda have quite a considerable nose on her, but the yellow body suit wasn't really all that appropriate. It's Eurovision, not 'Nuša does Europe'. All she needed was a whip and a gimp mask and she could've had her own show on SBS. However, even though the suit wasn't all that appropriate, it still was quite an effort to wear. There would be homos galore jealously wishing that they could look as good in such a piece of clothing.

    And then there was the hair. So flat. So lifeless. She obviously hadn't been using Sunsilk's latest offering. Perhaps some over-paid hairdresser could use her in a new ad for some Sunsilk product. But I wouldn't want her to be wearing the bodysuit.

    For your viewing pleasure - Nuša Derenda with Slovenia's 2001 entry that should've won but came 7th: Energy.

              The 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship Results (Part Five)   
    Welcome to the fifth post of a miniseries of posts I am going to make about the 2014 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship tournament. Most people don't realize that this tournament isn't just sixteen teams competing to win the gold medal. There are dozens of countries in various divisions competing to rise up the ladder of international ice hockey. In this, the 78th edition of the IIHF tournament, there are actually 46 teams trying to improve their international ranking and someday grab the gold medal.

    Links for Part One, TwoThree, and Four are right here, where I painstakingly checked out Division III, Division II B, Division II A, and Division I B respectively.

    Yesterday's post covered the triumph of Poland in Division I B. Congrats to the Poles for moving one step closer to joining the championship tournament. Next year, they'll compete in today's subject, Division I A, and attempt the leap into the top tier. While one team rises, one must fall, so Romania will sink into Division II A and attempt to move back up next year.

    Speaking of Division I A, that would be our subject today. The second tier of the IIHF tournament ladder features six teams similarly to the preceding Division II, but there's more at stake than any other tournament. Winning in this tier means a shot at the gold medal in the IIHF World Championship tournament, the ultimate goal of the annual series of tournaments. Even more interesting is how two teams are promoted to the Top Division, while only one moves down. It's a tougher division to try to move up but plenty of the teams in the division now have bobbed up and down the bottom tiers in the last decade. The rising teams must compete against the likes of Canada, Russia, United States, Sweden, Finland, and all the other mainstays in the upper tier, which is quite the tall task. For this year, the Division I A tournament took place in Goyang, South Korea from April 20th to 26. Here are the final standings:

    Slovenia and Austria rise from the absolute dogfight that took place in this tier, while host South Korea were throttled in all five of their games and see demotion after being shut out of points. The difference-making games in this tier were Austria's overtime wins over Ukraine (3-2) and Hungary (5-4). Notable players in this tier's roster list were Austria's Michael Grabner (New York Islanders), Michael Raffl (Philadelphia Flyers), former Detroit Red Wing and the world's second most successful Slovenian player Jan Mursak, and his superior Anze Kopitar. Wait a minute...you must be asking yourself how Kopitar can be in two places at once. Great question! The NHLers I mentioned didn't actually play a single shift in the tournament. I can't say for sure what Grabner and Raffl were doing but Kopitar is a little busy winning playoff games in the NHL to play for his country. So this all begs the question.

    Why the hell were these guys named to the team when there was no G-D way they were going to play?!?

    Perhaps they thought the threat of Kopitar and Grabner was enough to have the other teams roll over. Looks like it all worked out anyway.

    Here's the tournament's top scorers:


    Good job, Thomas Koch, for winning the scoring race without scoring. Austria obviously dominated the scoring in this tournament, but kudos to seeing Kim Ki-sung of lowly South Korea get seven points in five brutal losses.

    Here the top goaltenders:



    Not exactly a goaltending duel in any of these games. Oh well, here's some actual footage via YouTube:





    The Hungarian jerseys are awesome, and at one point a lot of Hungarians were reading this blog so here's a little something for them.

    Tournament directorate named goaltender Yutaka Fukufuji of Japan (the first Japanese player to make the NHL), Austrian defenseman Dominique Heinrich, and forward Jan Muršak of Slovenia the best positional players. How does three points in five games get you the tournament's best forward? Maybe he killed every penalty or something. I don't know, I'm running out of steam for this tier.

    Starting Monday I dig into the big tournament. You know, the one you all probably thought all these posts was about but I tricked you into reading five other posts first. See you then!

              Slovenia wins legal territorial dispute against Croatia in The Hague   

    The disputed waters, which belonged to the former Yugoslavia before its disintegration, were claimed by both countries. A Court of Arbitration in The Hague Thursday ruled in favour of Slovenia in its legal dispute with Croatia and ordered that the maritime border between the two countries be modified in the coming months. The decision has not been accepted by Zagreb.


              PASS SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia Recapitulation   

    So it is over:-) The fourth SQL Saturday in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the last SQL Saturday in Europe this year… SQL Saturday #567. Probably still some time is needed to collect and sort the impressions. However, from my perspective, the conference was a huge success.

    We have been all together, the attendees, the speakers, the sponsors, and the organizers, 240 out of 278 registered, having 86.33% attendance and less than 14% drop off rate. The drop-of rate makes our SQL Saturday again one of the most successful in the world. For me, this is very important. I really like when registered attendees show respect to speakers, sponsors and organizers, and simply come. I don’t like events where the drop off rate is 50% or even more. Although SQL Saturday is a free event, everybody should respect the fact that the speakers and the organizers are giving their free time, and the sponsors are giving the money.

    The two pre-conference seminars help us closing the budget. Therefore, special thanks goes to the pre-conference speakers. Of course, besides the seminars, the sponsors are the ones who enabled the event.

    On Saturday, we started with a short keynote. Surprisingly, most of the attendees, and not so surprisingly, all of the organizers were there:-)

    IMG_8902

    Then we continued with the regular sessions. Except for the first time slot, when we had some issues with wireless, everything went smoothly. With 30 sessions in 5 tracks, the day was quite intensive.

    IMG_9037

    Of course, we provided food and drinks. So far, there were no complaints, seems like the food was really good. No surprise for me, in Slovenia food is important, with bad food you get immediately bad evaluations, no matter of the quality of the presentations. Seems like the body food is more important than the food for the soul:-)

    IMG_9069

    One of the special traditions of our SQL Saturday is also wine and schnapps tasting after the raffle, at the end of the event.

    IMG_9229

    And we finished with speakers dinner and a party that for some lasted till the morning. Let’s skip the details here. For now, thanks to everybody involved in this great event!

    Hope we all meet again next year!


              PASS SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia 2016 Sponsors   

    Time to expose our wonderful sponsors, who enabled the event! Please check their companies and their great product and services.

    And here is the list, with the link to the SQL Saturday #567 Sponsors page, where you can click individual links.

              SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia: Please Attend or Unregister   

    We would like to make an appeal to all of you who are registered to the PASS SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia event: please come. Please remember that this conference was made possible because of the speakers, who are using their time and come on their own expenses to give you state of the art presentations, because of the sponsors, who are giving us and financing the venue, the food, the raffle awards, and more, and of course, because of many volunteers who spend their free time to help with the organization. We are also paying a fixed number of meals to the catering company; therefore, we would throw the money away for those who are registered and would not come. In short: all you need to do is to wake up, get out of bed, get into a good mood, and come to the event to get top presentations, good food and meet friends!

    However, if you are registered and already know that you will not be able to attend: please unregister and make room for those who would like to attend, but are on the waiting list or did not register yet. use the Register Now button, and if you are already registered, you should get an option to unregister.

    Thank you very much for understanding,

    Matija, Mladen and Dejan


              PASS SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia Schedule   

    The schedule for the last SQL Saturday this year in Europe is alive. Hurry up with registrations, two months before the even we are already 70% full!

    Also don’t forget our great pre-conference seminars:

    See you in beautiful Ljubljana!


              Conferences, User Groups, and Seminars Q3 and Q4 2016   

    I am closing my plan for the second semester of this year. Before listing the events I plan to attend, just a quick comment. I had conversation about some specific events and why don’t I visit them many times, especially about the events in vicinity. My answer is pretty simple. I try to plan my events for six months in advance. My schedule for the year 2016 is full. I simply can’t visit the events that are announced only couple of months in advance. I prefer long-term planning.

    Anyway, here is my list, pretty long again.

    And this should be enough for this year:-)


              PASS SQL Saturday #567 Slovenia 2016   

    So we are back againSmile

    The leading event dedicated to Microsoft SQL Server in Slovenia will take place on Saturday, 10th December 2016, at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science of the University of Ljubljana, Večna pot 113, Ljubljana (http://www.fri.uni-lj.si/en/about/how_to_reach_us/).

    As always, this is an English-only event. We don’t expect the speakers and the attendees to understand SlovenianSmile However, this way, our SQL Saturday has become quite well known especially in the neighboring countries. Therefore, expect not only international speakers, expect international attendees as well. There will be 30 top sessions, two original and interesting pre-conference seminars, a small party after the conference, an organized dinner for the speakers and sponsors… But first of all, expect a lot of good vibrations, mingling with friends, smiling faces, great atmosphere. You might also consider visiting Ljubljana and Slovenia for couple of additional days. Ljubljana is a very beautiful and lively city, especially in December.

    In cooperation with Kompas Xnet d.o.o. we are once again organizing two pre-conference seminars by three distinguished Microsoft SQL Server experts:

    The seminars will take place the day before the main event, on Friday, 9th December 2016, at Kompas Xnet d.o.o., Stegne 7, Ljubljana. The attendance fee for each seminar is 149.00 € per person; until 31st October 2016 you can register for each seminar for 119.00 € per person.

    Hope we meet at the event!


              Conferences, User Groups, and Seminars Q1 and Q2 2016–Update

              PASS SQL Saturday #460 Slovenia 2015 Recapitulation   

    Our third SQL Saturday in Ljubljana is over. Two weeks seems to be enough time to sleep over and see things a bit from a distance. Without any further delays, I can declare that it is clear that the event was a pure successSmile

    Let me start with the numbers, comparing total number of people, including speakers, sponsors, attendees, and organizers, with previous two SQL Saturdays in Ljubljana:

    • 2013: 135 people from 12 countries
    • 2014: 215 people from 16 countries
    • 2015: 253 people from 20 countries

    You can clearly see the growth. Even the keynote was full, like the following picture shows.

    We again experienced very small drop rate; more than 90% or registered attendees showed up. That’s very nice, showing respect to the speakers and sponsors. So thank you, attendees, for being fair and respectful again!

    We had more sponsors than previous years. This was extremely important, because this time we did not get the venue for free, and therefore we needed more money than for the previous two events. Thank you, sponsors, for enabling the event!

    Probably the most important part of these SQL Saturday events are the speakers. We got 125 sessions submitted by 51 speakers from 20 countries! We were really surprised. We take this a sign of our good work in the past. 30 great sessions with two state of the art precon seminars is more than we expected, yet still not enough to accommodate all speakers that sent the submissions. Thank you all speakers, those who were selected and those who were not! I hope we see you again in Slovenia next year. You can see some of the most beautiful speakers and volunteers in the following picture (decide by yourself if there is somebody spoiling the pictureSmile).

    Next positive surprise were the volunteers. With these number of speakers and attendees, we would not be able to handle the event without them. We realized that we have a great community, consisting of some really helpful people, that we can always count on. Thank you all!

    I think I can say for all three organizers, Mladen Prajdić, Matija Lah, and me, that we were more tired than any year before. However, hosting a satisfied crowd is the best payback you can imagineSmile And the satisfaction level was high even among the youngest visitors, as you can see from the following picture.

    20151211_F102459

    Of course, we experienced also some negative things. However, just a day before the New Year evening, I am not going to deal with them now. Let me finish this post in a positive waySmile


              Re:RE: Jeremy Corbyn - by: newcarlislefan   
    You're absolutely right. It is the minimum wage that costs jobs. It's a terrible thing. Luckily it wasn't the completely deregulated financial sector which was allowed to parcel up bundles of loans, trade on futures and options, buying bad debts and then imploding. That didn't cost any job, houses, business or banks.That awful minimum wage knackered us all up. Greedy [censored] on £7.50 they cost us jobs and continue to do so. Although nearly 200,00 bankers lost their jobs after 2008. I knew we shouldn't have been paying them the minimum wage. If we had paid them £5 per hour we could have been more competitive. We should definitely lower corporation tax as well. How dare companies pay 20%? For goodness sake! I mean it's alright for France and Germany to have 30% corporation tax but who would want to be like them. We should be on a level with corporation tax with other great economic powerhouses like Poland, Slovenia, Latvia, Finland, Croatia and the Czech Republic. You're spot on. Lower the minimum wage and pay less corporation tax! More zero hour contracts. It's the only way to be more competitive. That Mike Ashley is a great bloke, isn't he? And you're right about the public sector. Who needs social workers, teachers, firemen and ambulance drivers? Greedy [censored] the lot of them

              Dora Ciok   
    Dora Ciok

    Groppada è un piccolo comune di 500 abitanti, vicino a Trieste, alla sua periferia esiste ancora ora un bunker e una foiba che furono l'inizio e la fine di una giovane e bella ragazza Tiestina, Dora Ciok, di appena 20 anni, una splendida ragazza molto corteggiata, soprattutto da un caporione di una banda di partigiani Slavi, Danilo Perot, uno spietato miliziano comunista, giovanissimo, tenente dell'Esercito di liberazione Jugoslavo, dotato di un occhio vitreo fisso.
    Egli era un suo lontano cugino e si era morbosamente invaghito di Dora che però lo rifiutava perchè nbe aveva paura. Perot dopo l'ennesimo rifiuto, a inizio maggio del 1945, la fa prelevare dai suoi sgherri, la portò in una fortificazione situata a Groppada e qui le usò violenza, poi la consegna ai suoi uomini che anch'essi ne abusarono per cinque lunghissimi giorni. La ragazza più morta che viva verrà trascinata sino alla foiba di Groppada e gettata nuda nell'orrido come si faceva in quei giorni con gli Italiani. La madre di Dora si reca inutilmente dal capo dei partigiani cercando sua figlie, inutilmente.
    Alla fine alcuni giovani coraggiosi raggiungono la foiba e vi ci si calano, trovano una montagnola di cadaveri e riescono a riconoscere Dora da un sandalo, scattano delle foto che verranno mostrate al governatore militare della zona, Bowman il quale si convinse della gravità della cosa e permise solo allora il recupero della povera ragazza. I suoi stupratori e assassini, tutti partigiani Slavi e comunisti, verranno indagati, inquisiti e rinviati a giudizio ma prosciolti dalle amnistie di quel periodo.


    Nell'immediato dopoguerra, lo stato Italiano, corrispose ai 32 mila infoibatori Slavi, così definiti dal governo yugoslavo, una pensione di 650 mila lire dell'epoca e la stessa cosa fece nei confronti dei direttori dei campi di sterminio in Slovenia dove si faceva la pulizia etica degli Italiani definiti Fascisti !

              Slopestyle photocontest – Pistino Nimis – 30 maggio 2009   
    Slopestyle photocontest – Pistino Nimis – 30 maggio 2009

    Report:

    Chi l’avrebbe detto che il Pistino,nascosto dietro le colline di Nimis sarebbe diventato il bikepark più fotografato d’Italia?
    Eppure a 3 anni dalla nascita il Pistino è un park da slopestyle in piena regola,con 25 strutture una diversa dall’altra, ben fatte e ben distribuite su tutto il percorso che scende dal pendio in più linee sfiorandosi e incrociandosi in vari punti,cosa che permette ai riders di scegliere e personalizzare ogni singola discesa dall’inizio fino in fondo e ai fotografi di posizionarsi ovunque, trovando scene diverse tra loro senza grossi spostamenti, quale altro posto si presterebbe meglio per un foto contest?

    L’idea di dare importanza alla fotografia in un posto costruito per divertirsi con le biciclette è nata da una discussione tra Pier (Sights),Max e Stefano già un anno fa, e ha cominciato a prendere forma a fine dicembre quando il gruppo del “Nimis club” ha deciso d’impegnarsi ad organizzare l’evento freeride dell’anno.
    Non appena la notizia si è divulgata,i migliori fotografi sportivi hanno subito dimostrato gran interesse e curiosità per l’evento così come numerosi sponsor tecnici e locali.Un po’ più difficile è stato far capire ai riders che la scena non avrebbe interessato solo le foto, ma anche le prestazioni in campo dei bikers premiando best rider e best trick con una giuria a parte.
    Definito il tutto non c’è voluto molto tempo per riempire le liste delle pre iscrizioni, con più di 20 fotografi e oltre 40 riders in lista, costringendoci a chiuderle con dieci giorni di anticipo.

    Meno 1 day:

    Già di buon mattino si mettono in viaggio i team e i gruppi più lontani per recarsi alla mecca dei saltatori, partendo da Roma, Milano, Genova, Torino, Vicenza, Padova e molte altre città italiane nonché da Slovenia e Croazia.
    La sera è già festa,e intorno al fuoco si uniscono dialetti diversi,facce nuove e i look più svariati,con cuffioni Skullcandy al collo e bandane in testa, cose che si differenziano da noi che indossiamo le solite magliette Pistino e le braghe corte che teniamo per scendere al bar del paese a bere il caffè.

    Day zero:

    Dopo 2 settimane di sole e 35°C le previsioni non sono il massimo e in teoria ci aspetta una lunga sfilza di temporali e cielo coperto, ma di buon mattino il sole splende alto, mostrando agli “stranieri” quanto bello e curato sia il Pistino, i mucchi di terra ben battuti e definiti che servono a spiccare il volo sembrano raddoppiati tra ombra e luce,le amache sotto le acacie che creano un fresco angolo di relax vanno già a ruba e le biciclette cominciano a farsi sentire con i rumori delle loro ruote libere e a volte il cigolio dei freni.
    Fino all’ora di pranzo l’afflusso è regolare e il team che abbiamo preparato per non farci mancare niente è prontissimo, reparto iscrizioni, chioschi e percorso funzionano già a pieno ritmo e ben presto anche le griglie si accendono per preparare il cibo a tutti i presenti.

    Nel primo pomeriggio comincia ad arrivare il pubblico numerosissimo assieme ai massicci gruppi di nubi nere che un po’ ci intimoriscono facendoci pensare di anticipare il contest di 90 minuti, la giuria è pronta, i fotografi hanno già creato una fitta foresta di cavalletti e flash sotto ogni salto e i riders non riescono a tenere le gomme a terra, quindi si da inizio allo slopestyle photocontest.
    Tre ore per lo scatto vincente, la concentrazione di chi sta dando spettacolo è tale da annientarsi dal pubblico, sembra che ognuno sappia perfettamente cosa fare, e questo da un tocco di professionalità a quello che sta succedendo, sembra che il gruppetto di Nimis ce la stia facendo di nuovo a stupire i locals e ce la stia mettendo tutta per divertirsi e far divertire tutti i presenti in quel parco che coperto da nuvole, prima bianche poi nere diventa il posto più geniale per ricavarne il meglio dall’obiettivo.

    Backflip, flair e toboggan sono gettonatissimi dai bmxer che vanno sui dirt alti come mai nessuno, table,exup e 360 dalle mtb che vanno giù grosse dai dropponi, i wall sembrano essere le strutture più divertenti e anche le più fotogeniche, ma ben presto la scena si sposta in fondo nella zona dirt, dove i 2 salti più adatti ai tricks dovranno consegnare i premi best trick che concluderanno il contest con i numeri più attesi.Ed è qui che i nostri campioni si fanno rivedere e la fanno da padroni, Simone con il manual funbox, e qui ha già vinto su tutti anche se poi continua in rampa con barspin e per finire 360 e tailwhip sui doppi, mentre Fabio nonostante le bmx voltino spesso a testa in giù col manubrio contrario, fa vedere a tutti quanto agile sia nel girarsi in 360 doppio whip, e non ce n’è più per nessuno.
    Finale senza pioggi per il Pistino day e Alessandro "Alo" Belluscio incoronato Re dello SlopeStyle Photo Contest 2009!merito di un'invidiabile creatività ed un indisctutible superiorità tecnica. A brevissima distanza si è piazzato Matteo Ganora, secondo per un soffio, anche per lui grande creatività e perfetto controllo di esposizione e colore. Gradino più basso del podio per l'outsider Nicola Molon, che ha presentato alla giuria delle foto tecnicamente molto buone, cedendo qualcosa solo sul piano creativo. Premio della Giuria per lo sloveno Samo Vidic, per aver creato delle immagini assolutemente uniche installando una macchina fotografica direttamente su una MTB, un paio di foto assolutamente da vedere e miglior foto di Cristopher Breda.

    Passando ai riders, indiscusso dominio dei locals Simone Piceno e Fabio D'Alessandro: il primo è salito sul gradino più alto del podio sia per il premio Best Trick MTB che per il Best Rider (premio poi riassegnato con assoluto merito a Thomas De Fleurian, davvero un gran bel vedere tutte le sue run).Fabio si è portato a casa il Best Trick BMX girando 360 double tailwhip con la stessa facilità con cui al chiosco si spillava birra, e piazzandosi terzo assoluto nella classifica Best Rider, davvero un bel risultato considerando che come tutti i BMXer girava solo sulle ultime 2-3 strutture del Pistino.Un rider da tener d’occhio Daniele Ferri che si è aggiudicato il terzo premio e che girava numerosi tricks e su tutte le strutture.Il premio della Giuria non ha avuto bisogno di alcuna votazione, è stato assegnto alla prima run del "piccolo" Davide Maestrutti che di piccolo ha davvero solo l'età: a 10 anni si è fatto drop più alti di lui, e doppi lunghi svariati metri, con sicurezza ed uno stile che molti rider con barba e patente potevano solo che invidiare, e tanto. Se ne sentiremo parlare di lui in futuro non sarà di certo una sorpresa.

    A proposito di birre: il numerosissimo pubblico accorso ci ha messo meno di 12 ore per tracannarsene oltre 750 litri! Se non è un record da Guinnes, poco ci manca... per non parlare delle centinaia di chili di carne che sono transitati sulle griglie durante tutta la giornata, perfetto contorno per il piatto forte servito sulle strutture del Pistino a pochi metri di distanza!

              Aidussina (Slovenia) 15 febbraio 09   














    Tanta neve e perfino ghiacciata,ci ha fatto fare a piedi (e a son di scivoloni) gran parte dei ripidoni del sentiero che parte dal Monte Calvo (Mali Golak), mt. 1495 e scende per ben 10 km attraversando pendenti boschi di pini in bellissimi singletrak dal fondo coperto da aghi di pino e piste velocissime e sassose dove la velocità mette a dura prova gli ammortizzatori delle bici,fino ad Aidussina,luoigo del ritrovo per il giro freeride.
    Purtroppo solo una discesa,per via del ghiaccio non si riusciva a salire fino in cima con le macchine,e quindi abbiamo dovuto pedalarcela fino al sentiero che scende ripido,a tratti in neve fresca divertentissimo e a tratti ghiacciato e impossibile anche a piedi se non aggrappandosi ai rami o sfruttando rocce e impronte di scarponi che hanno formato dei gradini qua e la...
    molto meglio invece la seconda metà,dove il sentiero stretto,tecnico e ripido era quasi asciutto e poi la pista,larga e velocissima,anche se piena di pietre smosse ma con alcune curve spondate a wallride e droppetti naturali.
    Sarà meglio tornarci quando si scioglierà la neve!

              Opponents of new Kosovo must be stopped - Joseph Biden   
    By Joseph Biden
    Published: January 2 2007 19:12 | Last updated: January 2 2007 19:12
    Years of hand-wringing and chest-thumping over the future status of Kosovo may finally be drawing to a close. In the next few months, adroit diplomacy to secure Kosovo’s independence could yield a victory for Muslim democracy, a better future for south-east Europe and validation for the judicious use of American power.

    But along with the potential for triumph in Kosovo, there is a growing risk that Serbia and Russia will conspire to seize defeat from the jaws of victory. Extremists in Belgrade and Moscow are – for very different reasons – hoping to use Russia’s United Nations Security Council veto to quash Kosovo’s bid for independence. If they succeed, the Balkans will emerge as another source of bad news in a world already crowded with crises.


    ADVERTISEMENT
    During the seven years since Nato ended Slobodan Milosevic’s reign of terror in Kosovo, a UN-backed administration has largely succeeded in bringing stability to the province. However, Kosovo’s people are justifiably tired of a status quo marked by uncertainty and economic privation. These two intertwined problems will continue so long as the debate over the province’s future remains unresolved. Its ambiguous status is also leading to stagnation in Serbia.

    Nationalist politicians in Belgrade have embraced the fight against Kosovo’s independence to divert public attention from their own failures and Serbia’s stalled bid for European Union membership. The actions of Vojislav Kostunica, Serbia’s prime minister, have been particularly disappointing. In addition to refusing international requests to call for the arrest of war crimes fugitives Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, Mr Kostunica has rejected every attempt at compromise on Kosovo. Serbia’s moral authority on the issue hit a new low in October when the 1.5m ethnic Albanian residents of the province were denied the right to vote in a deeply flawed constitutional referendum that declared Kosovo an integral part of Serbia.

    To their great credit, the people of Serbia have proved more realistic about Kosovo than their elected leaders. Opinion polls show that many Serbs foresee that the province will gain independence. Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo, meanwhile, overwhelmingly expect to sever ties with Serbia. With citizens on both sides of the issue ready to finish the debate and move on to more constructive challenges, leaders who block a solution will do so at their peril.

    Historically, trouble in the Balkans is almost always the result of false expectations. On the whole, the citizens of south-east Europe are mentally prepared for an independent Kosovo.

    If Belgrade postpones a settlement it will reopen the issue for many Serbs previously resigned to Kosovo’s independence and further inflame frustrations among the region’s ethnic Albanians. The result could be a return of the mob violence that shook Kosovo in March 2004.

    A Russian effort to delay a deal on Kosovo would be in keeping with the Kremlin’s habit of fostering weak, subservient governments in formerly communist states. Moscow has apparently reached the conclusion that impoverished, unstable regimes are easier targets for manipulation than prosperous, independent countries. It has made extensive, public use of oil and gas diplomacy to undermine the budding democracies of eastern Europe. Less attention has focused on the Kremlin’s quiet efforts to exacerbate territorial conflicts in Georgia, Moldova and Azerbaijan. Serbia could become the latest victim of this strategy.

    Kosovo is not ready for full sovereignty. Even after independence, Nato and the international community will need to provide security guarantees for Kosovo’s minorities and strengthen its economy and institutions. But it is time to grant the province independence. The longer the status debate continues, the further Kosovo and Serbia will fall behind other rapidly progressing former Yugoslav republics such as Croatia and Slovenia.

    Success in Kosovo, if realised, will have implications far beyond the Balkans. A responsible Russian approach to the issue could demonstrate the Kremlin’s commitment to global order at a time when its credibility is in tatters. The people of Kosovo – already the most pro-American in the Islamic world – will provide a much-needed example of a successful US-Muslim partnership. Stability in south-east Europe would be a welcome bit of good news and offer hope in a season of tremendous foreign policy challenges.

    The European Union urged Serbia on Wednesday to "take a constructive approach" in negotiating the future of its breakaway Kosovo province and said it must cooperate with the U.N.'s war crimes tribunal if it wants closer ties with the EU.Serbia and its Balkan neighbors must also do more to tackle corruption and step up political and reforms needed to prepare them for eventual EU membership, according to the EU's annual progress reports on the prospects of would-be EU members."I trust that Serbian citizens as well as political leaders now focus less on the nationalist past and more on the European future, that's best for Serbia, that's best for the western Balkans," EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn told reporters after the release of the EU reports."On Kosovo, we expect Serbia to take a constructive approach," he added.The EU's report on Serbia reiterated that steps toward eventual membership were suspended until Serbia proves it is fully cooperating with the U.N. war crimes tribunal and hands over top war crimes suspect Gen. Ratko Mladic.The report said the EU was also concerned over Serbia's new constitution, warning it did not fully guarantee judges' independence. It also called on Belgrade to intensify its fight against corruption and ensure full civilian control over its armed forces.On Kosovo, the EU report acknowledged that the focus on the sensitive status negotiations led by the U.N. "has delayed significant reform efforts."It said the province's administration "remains weak, affecting the rule of law," adding that judicial bodies there have made "little progress" in civil and criminal justice.Separate reports were also released on Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania.On Croatia already opened entry talks with the EU last year and hopes to join in 2009. However, the report said there was "considerable scope" for improving the nation's judicial system and its fight against corruption. It also called on Zagreb to ensure better protection of minorities and to solve its border dispute with EU member Slovenia.Croatia's President Stipe Mesic said the critical report on his country showed it had to follow through on reforms. "It is easy to pass the laws, but it is much harder to implement them," he said in Zagreb. "It all depends on us."The EU warned Macedonia over its problems with corruption. It said reforms must go faster, if wants to get a starting date for membership talks.

              Preview: Your guide to the 2017 Tour de France   
    Preview: Your guide to the 2017 Tour de France

    The warm-up races are done, new national champions have been crowned, and all is now in readiness. The 2017 Tour de France is just days away. Ahead of the 104th edition of the world’s biggest race we take a look at the route, the key stages, the riders to watch, and how you can follow the race.

    The race starts in Germany, and passes through Belgium and Luxembourg on its way to France.

    Learn all about the Tour de France, including how the race is won, the points are earned and what the jerseys mean in our Guide to the Tour de France

    The 2017 Tour de France starts with a 14km individual time trial in the German city of Dusseldorf. Stage 2 sees the race head into Belgium, with a stage finish in Liege, while stage 3 starts in Verviers, Belgium, passes through Luxembourg and finishes in France. Stage 4 starts in Luxembourg before heading back into France where it remains for the rest of its 21 stages.

    Rather than taking in a clockwise or anti-clockwise loop of France, this year’s route is a little different. After a brief visit to the Alps, the Tour heads west then south towards the Pyrenees, before skirting east to hit the Alps again in the final week.

    The penultimate stage is an individual time trial in Marseille, on France’s south-east coast, before a long overnight transfer to Paris for the traditional Champs-Elysees finish.

    ly4btjmvgtdm84yi7xwiukzve-jpg

    It’s the first edition of the Tour de France since 1992 that will feature all five of France’s mountain ranges. In all the riders will cover 3,540km over the Tour’s 21 stages.

    There are perhaps six key stages for the GC

    When it comes to the battle for overall honors at this year’s Tour, there are a handful of stages that should prove decisive. Stage 5 could well be the first test, thanks to the 5.9km stage-ending ascent to La Planche des Belles Filles, which averages 8.5% but is much steeper at the end. Stage 9 is likely to be an important stage, thanks to plenty of climbing and the Mont du Chat climb in particular.

    Used in the Criterium du Dauphine just a couple weeks back, this super-steep climb (8.7km at 10.3%) tore the race apart. The same is likely to happen at the Tour. The descent, too, could have an impact, with its many twists and turns on a very narrow road. The finish is in Chambery, a little further from the bottom of the descent than it was in the Dauphine. A stage to watch for sure.

    ehfxewdjke-8aperv6sfyfpsg-jpg

    Stage 12 is a very challenging ride through the Pyrenees with six categorized climbs and an uphill finish to Peyragudes. Stage 17 has four climbs including the Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Telegraphe and the Col du Galibier (the highest point of race). From the top of that final climb it’s 28km downhill to the finish in Serre-Chevalier.

    Stage 18 features three climbs, two of them quite lengthy, including the stage-ending Col d’Izoard which is 14.1km at 7.3%. Finally, the stage 20 time trial, while largely flat, could create some time gaps which, depending on how the leaderboard looks, could decide the race overall.

    riwtjzks-9vygi0h7cou7a-eq-jpg

    Of course, time gaps are possible on just about every stage, such is the unpredictability of bike racing. But if you’ve only got time to watch a few stages of this year’s race, we’d recommend the six mentioned above.

    There are arguably three five-star favorites for the race overall

    You could argue that, on paper, Richie Porte (BMC) is the man to beat at this year’s Tour de France. He’s had a stellar lead-up, winning the Tour Down Under (including two uphill finishes), the Tour de Romandie, a mountain-top finish at Paris-Nice, and he finished second at the Criterium du Dauphine.

    Porte was leading into the final stage of the Dauphine and while he was ultimately beaten by Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), Porte’s tenacious performance throughout the race, especially on the final stage, puts him in good stead. The Tasmanian was isolated at the Dauphine, but believes he’ll have more support at the Tour.

    He climbs very well, his time-trialing is excellent (he won the Dauphine ITT). Perhaps Porte’s two biggest weaknesses are his descending (Froome has taken time on him in several big races) and the way he seems to attract bad luck. He had an ill-timed puncture on stage 2 of last year’s Tour which cost him minutes. It’s likely he would have finished on the overall podium were it not for that incident.

    “I think I need to avoid the bad luck I had last year”, Porte said when asked by CyclingTips what the key will be for him at this year’s race. Hopefully he can do so and we can see what Porte is truly capable of over three weeks.

    4e1_4vfmetdwmm59zoqoelypo-jpg

    Chris Froome (Sky) hasn’t had the best season so far. In fact, it’s the first time since 2012 that he’ll start the Tour de France without a win for the season. Froome finished third at the Dauphine, a race he won before all three of his Tour de France victories so far.

    But while Froome hasn’t been at his best in 2017, he certainly shouldn’t be written off. His season is built around the Tour, he knows how to win the race, and you can bet he’ll be doing everything to try and secure win #4. And as Froome showed last year with some terrific descending and an unlikely late breakaway on a flat stage, he’s not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to taking time on his rivals.

    Discount Chris Froome at your peril.

    5nrgedowgtdotbdfbfe4qtw34-jpg

    Nairo Quintana (Movistar) made it clear earlier this year that he was targeting the Giro d’Italia-Tour de France double, with the goal of winning both. He fell short of the first, finishing second to Tom Dumoulin, but the Colombian is a big chance at the Tour.

    Quintana has had a good year, with overall wins at the Volta a la Valenciana and Tirreno-Adriatico, including a summit finish win at the latter. In addition to his second overall at the Giro he also won a stage in the mountains. Expect Quintana to feature heavily when the road tilts upwards.

    Of particular note is Quintana’s Spanish teammate Alejandro Valverde. More than capable of racing for the overall himself – he was sixth last year — Valverde has said he’s all-in to support Quintana. Few of the GC contenders have such a strong lieutenant as Quintana and you can expect Valverde to finish inside the top 10 again assuming nothing goes hugely wrong.

    sfmrbmgtqixhlpoz63on05m9g-jpg

    There’s an impressive list of contenders for the top 5 and the top 10

    His best might be a few years behind him, but Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) needs to be respected in any Grand Tour he starts. The Spaniard has won the Tour twice before and with a total of of seven Grand Tours to his name, he knows how to race over three weeks.

    Contador was second at no fewer than four stage races this year, including Paris-Nice where he put in a phenomenal last-stage performance, attacking from a long way out to try and take the overall win. It’s this fight that makes Contador such a dangerous prospect. Sure, he was off the pace at the Dauphine, but few of the other GC contenders will be willing to give Contador any latitude at the Tour.

    It’s worth remembering that Contador has Bauke Mollema for support too. The Dutchman was sitting second overall for six stages of last year’s Tour, before he fell out of contention on stage 19. Mollema is more than capable of a good overall finish himself — he’s been inside the top 10 three times — and will be an important helper for Contador.

    xkre6_npvtj_nuzwhpksuaqhq-jpg

    Jakob Fuglsang was the big winner at the recent Criterium du Dauphine, claiming two stages and the overall. On the last stage, the Dane was in third, 1:15 behind Porte, but took the opportunity presented to him, rode away from Porte and then the rest of the field to take a memorable win. Worth noting: Fugslang didn’t lose any time to Porte on the race’s final climb with the latter in hot pursuit.

    It’s hard to see Fugslang winning the Tour overall. His best GC performance was seventh in 2013 and while he’s on another level now, the riders ahead of him will likely prove too strong over three weeks. Note though that Fugslang is just one of two very strong options for Astana at this year’s Tour …

    Fabio Aru has had an interrupted 2017 season with a knee injury forcing him out of the Giro. But the Sardinian has shown impressive form since returning to racing. He was good at the Dauphine, often climbing with the best, and won the Italian road nationals last week with a late solo move. Between he and Fugslang, Astana have some very good cards to play.

    tatygmj1bfu1jmm8uozrbwfmu-jpg

    French hopes rest on the shoulders of two strong prospects at this year’s race: Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) and Romain Bardet (Ag2r-La Mondiale). Pinot has had an impressive season, courtesy of a stage win at the Ruta del Sol, a stage at the Tour of the Alps and second overall, third overall at Tirreno-Adriatico, and a stage win and fourth overall at the Giro d’Italia. Pinot’s best finish at the Tour was his third overall in the 2014 Tour and while he’ll be hard pressed to replicate or improve on that this year, he should feature in the battle for the top five.

    Romain Bardet, too, will find it difficult to match his best Tour performance — second overall last year. He’s had a winless start to the year and his best stage-race finish was sixth at the recent Dauphine. It’s worth noting that Bardet also didn’t take a win before last year’s Tour, but he was second at the Dauphine that time.

    Bardet should feature high up on the general classification and is a good prospect of another stage win. He hit the winners’ list in 2015 and 2016 and will be looking to the hard hilly stages to add to those victories.

    apks_9aa0hs0eq0bx4akd-abw-jpg

    Orica-Scott has turned itself into a GC team in recent years, thanks to Esteban Chaves and the Yates twins. At the 2017 Tour it will be Chaves and Simon Yates that lead the charge.

    Chaves is a real unknown — he didn’t race between the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in February and the Dauphine due to a knee injury, and was well off the pace at the latter event. Simon Yates has had a better season with a stage win at Paris-Nice, victory at GP Miguel Indurain, a stage of Romandie and second overall before finishing 13th at the Dauphine. Yates will be aiming for the white jersey and top 10 overall, both of which seem very achievable.

    There are at least eight stages for the sprinters

    No race attracts as many good sprinters as the Tour de France and this year’s race provides plenty of opportunities for the fastmen. It’s hard to pick an outright favorite for the sprints, but on paper it’s probably Marcel Kittel (QuickStep Floors).

    Kittel has nine wins for the year, the most of any sprinter, and has hit the line first in a stage of five of the six stage races he’s done. He’s a nine-time stage winner at the Tour de France and will be disappointed not to win at least one in 2017. He’ll have a hard time replicating the feat of his younger teammate Fernando Gaviria at the Giro, though, with Gaviria snagging four stages.

    qsi43yp9tc0pj2sjpwqlexalg-jpg

    Andre Greipel (Lotto Soudal) has won a stage of the Tour every year since 2011 and certainly won’t want to see that streak end. He’s taken wins at Paris-Nice and the Giro this year, but has arguably been a little off his explosive best. Still, Greipel should win a stage again in 2017.

    World champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will be one of the must-watch riders at this year’s Tour, as he is in every race he starts. Not only will the Slovakian be a factor in the flat sprints, he’s also a big chance in the hard uphill sprints, and the unbackable favorite for the points classification.

    Sagan has won the green jersey for the past five years and were he to win it this year, he would equal the record held by Erik Zabel, who won green every year from 1996 to 2001.

    Sagan has had a good start to 2017 with two stage wins at Tirreno-Adriatico, one at the Amgen Tour of California, and, most recently, two at the Tour de Suisse. He won three stages at last year’s Tour and is more than capable of doing the same again in 2017.

    ocv7yxduzuh-uxanyf_3vfih8-jpg

    It’s hard to see anyone beating Sagan for the green jersey in 2017.

    Despite being discounted by many, Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) dominated the sprints at last year’s Tour, winning a very impressive four stages. This year he’ll be ecstatic if he wins just one — he’s had Epstein-Barr Virus this season and missed three months of racing. He managed to surprise himself by taking a second place at his return race, the Tour of Slovenia, and while the Tour is several levels harder than that, don’t be surprised if the wily Manxman finds a way to take a stage win.

    Arnaud Demare (FDJ) won his second French road title last weekend and brings strong form into the Tour. He’s yet to win a stage of his home Grand Tour, but with eight wins for the year, including a stage win at the Dauphine, this might be his best chance yet.

    Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) is another Frenchman still searching for his first Tour de France stage victory. After missing last year’s race due to injuries sustained in a fight, Bouhanni will be desperate to make the most of his opportunity in 2017 and add to the four wins he has so far this year.

    Alexander Kristoff has publicly acknowledged that he’s not particularly happy at Katusha-Alpecin at the moment, and his performance seems to have suffered a little. He’s had a solid six wins for the year, but hasn’t looked at his world-beating best. Still: one to watch in the sprints for sure.

    ppfhkeuxxch8cim_amobd0a-a-jpg

    Kristoff last won a stage of the Tour in 2014.

    Michael Matthews (Sunweb) broke his Tour de France drought last year and will be hoping to add to that victory in 2017. Matthews has just two wins in 2017 — one at Vuelta al Pais Vasco and one at the Tour de Suisse — but the recency of the latter will give him confidence coming into the Tour.

    The stage-hunters will have plenty of opportunities

    In between the sprint stages and the days suited to the GC men, there are a bunch of stages that will suit those who can get into and win from the breakaway.

    Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) broke several bones in a crash at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco earlier this year but had the perfect return to racing last weekend with wins in both the time trial and road race at the British national championships. Cummings is a master of the late escape and has won a stage at each of the last two Tours. It would be no surprise to see him take another this year.

    Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) is a three-time Tour de France stage winner and two-time winner of the climbers’ classification. If Majka is a little off the pace overall he’s more than likely to get up the road in the mountains in search of more stage wins. He was strong at the Tour of California and the Tour of Slovenia, which he won, so he brings good form into the race.

    m8filimsdvu6bqv0c2rnu_cze-jpg

    Philippe Gilbert (QuickStep Floors) is having his best season since 2011, highlighted by his Tour of Flanders win, and will likely be on the lookout for stage wins at the Tour too. He won a stage of the Tour de Suisse in a sprint, and might be tempted by the tough uphill sprints on stage 3 and stage 14. Expect to see him in the break deep into the second and third weeks too.

    Much like Gilbert, Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) has had a stellar year, and much like Gilbert GVA is more the capable of winning stages at the Tour. The Belgian has won a stage at the last two editions and will have his eye on the tough uphill sprints, like Gilbert and sparring partner Peter Sagan.

    Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) will be in stage-hunting mode throughout the Tour, like he was at the Giro. At that particular race he took a strong win from the breakaway and will be hoping to replicate that feat in the mountains of the second and third week.

    phsbfykivcq0o5hydcvtdwss8-jpg

    Rolland was ecstatic to win a stage of the Giro earlier this year. A Tour de France stage win would mean even more.

    There are many other exciting riders to watch in the race.

    Tony Martin (QuickStep Floors): The four-time ITT world champion will be beyond keen to win the stage 1 ITT and take the yellow jersey on home soil.

    Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe): Best young rider at the Dauphine and a good chance of repeating that performance at the Tour.

    Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo): A genuine chance to win one or both of the race’s ITTs.

    Louis Meintjes (UAE Team Emirates): Very impressive at the Dauphine, eighth overall last year. Could do the same or better in 2017, plus will be targeting the white jersey.

    Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data): Showed good form recently at the Tour of Norway and Tour des Fjords. Good on tough uphill finishes.

    Each stage of the race will be broadcast live, from the very start.

    For the first time ever, fans of the Tour will have the opportunity to see every single kilometer of La Grand Boucle. Fans in Australia will be able to watch the race via SBS TV, streaming live on the Cycling Central website, and via the Tour Tracker app (Android, iphone and ipad).

              Historian and public intellectual Tony Judt, 1948 - 2010   
    Considered by many to be a giant in the intellectual world, Tony Judt died last month following a two-year fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Judt was in "the great tradition of the spectateur engagé, the politically engaged but independent and critical intellectual" (Timothy Garton Ash - ) "A historian of the very first order,a public intellectual of an old-fashioned kind and — in more ways than one — a very brave man" (Michael Elliott - TIME Magazine). We quote Tony Judt from two recent interviews:

    Tony Judt on courage among today’s politicians:

    Courage is always missing in politicians. It is like saying basketball players aren’t normally short. It isn’t a useful attribute. To be morally courageous is to say something different, which reduces your chances of winning an election. Courage is in a funny way more common in an old-fashioned sort of enlightened dictatorship than it is in a democracy. However, there is another factor. My generation has been catastrophic. I was born in 1948 so I am more or less the same age as George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Gerhard Schröder, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown – a pretty crappy generation, when you come to think of it, and many names could be added. It is a generation that grew up in the 1960s in Western Europe or in America, in a world of no hard choices, neither economic nor political. There were no wars they had to fight. They did not have to fight in the Vietnam War. They grew up believing that no matter what choice they made, there would be no disastrous consequences. The result is that whatever the differences of appearance, style and personality, these are people for whom making an unpopular choice is very hard.

    Someone once said: ‘But Blair’s choice to go to war in Iraq was unpopular with the majority of the population.’ I agree. But what Blair was doing was going for a different kind of popularity – he wanted to show his strength. To do this he had to do something unpopular, yet something that cost him nothing. Doing something unpopular that may cost you your job is much harder. The last generation in America with such courage was probably the generation of Lyndon Johnson. In a funny kind of way Thatcher, whom I certainly do not like, had courage. However, she fits the description of naive and idealistic; I don’t like her ideals, her naivety was a disaster, but it’s still a fair description. Today it is a criticism to describe a politician as idealistic. This is in a way a new phenomenon and it too is born from the fact that Europe has not been involved in wars that would demand the mobilisation of the whole population for over 60 years now. The last time there was such a sustained period of peace was probably the early Middle Ages. Traditionally leaders rose to power through wars or conquest. We have had six, seven generations of leaders who came to power exclusively by political manoeuvring, which is historically very unusual. It’s like inbreeding: there are no external inputs, no new kinds of people, only the political class breeding itself. This isn’t an argument in favour of war, just a historical fact.

    Tony Judt on what Europe can do to exert pressure on Israel:

    Israel wants two things more than anything else in the world. The first is American aid. This it has. As long as it continues to get American aid without conditions it can do stupid things for a very long time, damaging Palestinians and damaging Israel without running any risk. However, the second thing Israel wants is an economic relationship with Europe as a way to escape from the Middle East. The joke is that Jews spent a hundred years desperately trying to have a state in the Middle East. Now they spend all their time trying to get out of the Middle East. They don’t want to be there economically, culturally or politically – they don’t feel part of it and don’t want to be part of it. They want to be part of Europe and therefore it is here that the EU has enormous leverage. If the EU said: ‘So long as you break international laws, you can’t have the privileges of partial economic membership, you can’t have internal trading rights, you can’t be part of the EU market,’ this would be a huge issue in Israel, second only to losing American military aid. We don’t even have to talk about Gaza, just the Occupied Territories. Why do Europeans not do it? Here, the problem of blackmail is significant. And it is not even active blackmail but self-blackmail. When I talk about these things in Holland or in Germany, people say to me: ‘We couldn’t do that. Don’t forget, we are in Europe. Think of what we did to the Jews. We can’t use economic leverage against Israel. We can’t be a critic of Israel, we can’t use our strength as a huge economic actor to pressure the Jewish state. Why? Because of Auschwitz.’ I understand this argument very well. Many of my family were killed in Auschwitz. However, this is ridiculous. Europe can’t live indefinitely on the credit of someone else’s crimes to justify a state that creates and commits its own crimes. If Zionism is to succeed as a representation of the original ideas of the Zionist founders, Israel has to become a normal state. That was the idea. Israel should not be special because it is Jewish. Jews are to have a state just like everyone else has a state. It should have no more rights than Slovenia and no fewer. Therefore, it also has to behave like a state. It has to declare its frontiers, recognise international law, sign international treaties and agreements. Furthermore, other countries have to behave towards it the way they would towards any other state that broke those laws. Otherwise it is treated as special and Zionism as a project has failed. People will say: ‘Why are we picking on Israel? What about Libya? Yemen? Burma? China? All of which are much worse.’ Fine. But we are missing two things: first, Israel describes itself as a democracy and so it should be compared with democracies not with dictatorships; second, if Burma came to the EU and said, ‘It would be a huge advantage for us if we could have privileged trading rights with you,’ Europe would say: ‘First you have to release political prisoners, hold elections, open up your borders.’ We have to say the same things to Israel. Otherwise we are acknowledging that a Jewish state is an unusual thing – a weird, different thing that is not to be treated like every other state. It is the European bad conscience that is part of the problem. - two excerpts from The Way Things Are and How They Might Be, an interview with Kristina Božic from March 2010 published in the London Review of Books.

    Tony Judt on Democracy Democracy has always been a problem. The truly attractive features of the Western tradition that we accidentally—and it really is accidentally—get the benefit of are the rule of law, liberalism and tolerance, all of which are virtues inherited from predemocratic societies, whether they were based in eighteenth-century Anglo-American aristocratic individualism or nineteenth-century European forms of a type of developed postfeudal legal state. Democracy comes last. Democracy is simply a system of selection of people to rule over you. And it's not accidental that everyone is now a democrat. The Chinese are for democracy. George Bush was for democracy. The Burmese believe in it; they just call it something slightly different. South African whites believed in democracy; they just thought it should be arranged differently for blacks. Democracy is a dangerously empty term, and to the extent that it has substance, and the substance consists of allowing people to select freely how they live, the chance that they will choose to live badly is very high. The question is, What do we do now, in a world where, in the absence of liberal aristocracies, in the absence of social democratic elites whose authority people accept, you have people who genuinely believe, in the majority, that their interest consists of maximizing self-interest at someone else's expense? The answer is, Either you re-educate them in some form of public conversation or we will move toward what the ancient Greeks understood very well, which is that the closest system to democracy is popular authoritarianism. And that's the risk we run. Not a risk of a sort of ultra-individualism in a disaggregated society but of a kind of de facto authoritarianism. - from Talking With Tony Judt, an interview with Christine Smallwood from May 2010 published in The Nation.
              Dal 22 luglio torna il Festival di Majano con l'atteso live dei Litfiba.   
    Parte il prossimo 22 luglio il Festival di Majano giunto alla 57ma edizione, rassegna che fin dalla nascita rappresenta uno degli appuntamenti di maggior richiamo dell'estate del Friuli Venezia Giulia. Anche quest'anno il festival resta nel solco della sua lunga tradizione, proponendo decine di eventi fra grande musica, approfondimento culturale, gastronomia e sport, eventi che riusciranno a catalizzare l'attenzione di decine di miglia di persone. Il fiore all'occhiello del Festival di Majano, che si concludera' il 15 agosto e' da sempre la Musica Live elemento che ha sempre attratto non solo gli appassionati di casa ma anche quelli delle vicine regioni e delle attigue Austria, Slovenia e Croazia. E sabato 22 luglio si comincera' proprio alla grande con il ritorno dei Litfiba, gruppo che ha fatto la storia della musica rock italiana, che portera' a Majano, il nuovissimo 'Eutopia Tour ', tourne'e che segue la pubblicazione dell'omonimo album certificato disco d'oro. Il disco, ricordiamo, ha esordito al terzo posto della classifica degli album piu' venduti in Italia e si trova al primo posto della classifica dei vinili; dieci tracce in puro stile Litfiba, dove Piero Pelu' e Ghigo Renzulli trattano diversi temi: dall'inquinamento all'estremismo religioso, passando per le vittime della and lsquo;Ndrangheta ai nuovi media. Non mancheranno in scaletta anche i grandi successi della strepitosa carriera della band.Oltre alla musica gli organizzatori di questa manifestazione che animera' la graziosa cittadina in Provincia di Udine, hanno inserito manifestazioni nel campo dell'Arte con la Pinacoteca 'Ciro di Pers ' che aprira', infatti, i suoi spazi per una mostra personale di Toni Zanussi, pittore tarcentino che quest'anno festeggia i suoi 40 anni di ininterrotta attivita' artistica, sempre declinata con rigore ed eleganza e allo stesso tempo capace di trasmettere il suo impegno civile, il riscatto per gli umili della Terra.Nel campo delle Sport ci saranno manifestazioni legate al mondo dei motori come il 9 Rally di Majano in programma domenica 30 luglio che vede in febbrile attesa migliaia di aficionados di questo particolarissimo sport. Non poteva mancare una sezione dedicata alla gastronomia con i celebri chioschi enogastronomici che dispenseranno piatti della cucina regionale, italiana e internazionale; un appuntamento da non mancare per tutti i buongustai con il galletto, il frico, il filetto del festival, la costata alla brace, i dolci e l'appetitosa cucina austriaca con la Wiener Schnitzel, i wurstel arrotolati nella pancetta con patate, accompagnati da ottima birra artigianale e a caduta. Il tutto in attesa del grande spettacolo pirotecnico che chiudera' il Festival la sera del 15 agosto. Il programma e' veramente ricco e non si puo' compendiare in poche righe. Per ogni consultazione ed informazione e' indispensabile connettersi con uwww.promajano.itu, ricordando anche il Festival di Majano e' organizzato dalla Pro Majano, in collaborazione con la Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia, PromoTurismoFVG, il Comune di Majano, la Provincia di Udine, l'Associazione regionale tra le Pro Loco, la Comunita' Collinare del Friuli, il Consorzio tra le Pro Loco della Comunita' Collinare.Festival di Majano57ma edizione22 luglio - 15 agosto 2017Informazioni:www.promajano.it,A cura della Redazione SpettacoloNella foto i Liftiba (Foto di Paolo De Francesco)
              lunge on "Tour de France Stage 1 - Düsseldorf - The start of the journey"   

    Roll up, roll up, it's time for Le Tour and I for 1 and very excited. To begin, Düsseldorf.

    The Route: 14km out and back between Düsseldorf’s tidy Messe conference hall and the city centre including 10km alongside the sleepy river Rhine. It’s so flat the only changes in altitude are bridges over the river Rhine but these will be felt, they’re suspension bridges rather than small bumps. The few technicalities come in nine corners, some require braking, most don’t. Overall this is a fast and flat course on big boulevards. The time check at 8.1km comes in the downtown shopping precinct before heading north back to the start alongside the banks of the Rhine with a four kilometre long finishing straight that will see returning riders pass rivals on their way out in the opposite direction.

    So, the course:

    And the profile (flat!):

    And the contenders from the ever wonderful inrng.
    The Contenders: Tony Martin carries the weight of a nation and the expectations of his Katusha team. Freshly crowned German TT champion he’ll start in the rainbow bands as world champion. If his wardrobe’s crowded, his trophy cabinet isn’t because he’s not won a World Tour level TT since May 2015. However the absence of rival time trial specialists opens the way for him, the course suits him perfectly but the drought means he’s still not the certainty of the past. He has racked up three second places this season to prove this. If ever there was a day to come first it’s today but unlike football home advantage counts for little in cycling, it just brings added pressure.

    Jos Van Emden won the Giro’s final stage, the time trial into Milan and he could win the Tour’s opener. He’s a specialist in short, flat courses and so Düsseldorf is as good as Milan. But where’s his form at? Lotto-Jumbo have a good second shot at the stage win with Primož Roglič (pictured) who almost won the Giro’s opener in 2016 but for Tom Dumoulin pipping him by a fraction of a second. Now the Slovenian has been preparing specifically for the Tour de France and won the Ster ZLM prologue recently.

    Rohan Dennis would have been a top pick but while he enjoys the sofa BMC Racing team mate Stefan Küng has a good shot at the win. The Swiss powerhouse was second to Dennis in both stages of the Tour de Suisse showing speed over long and short distances.

    Movistar bring two time trial specialists Jasha Sütterlin is the team’s German connection and a promising TT specialist but this would be an upset, a dream come true. Instead Jonathan Castroviejo is more experienced but the course’s big wide roads don’t suit him so well.

    Among others Michał Kwiatkowski has won time trials before but blows hot and cold, Stephen Cummings hasn’t won a big time trial but his win in the British Championships was convincing. Aussies Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) and Luke Durbridge (Orica-Scott) could place high. Maciej Bodnar (Bora-Hansgrohe) would normally be an outside pick but he lost 90 seconds to Kwiatkowski in the recent Polish championships. Lastly if we’re expecting Tony Martin then Marcel Kittel is another home rider to watch, an unlikely winner today but possibly top-10 and positioning himself nicely for time bonuses in upcoming sprint stages.

    Lastly watch the GC contenders, 14km is enough to put daylight in between the big names and leave some of the climbers looking like fish out of water, as hopeless as Gustave Courbet’s trout. We’ll get an immediate comparison between Richie Porte and Chris Froome plus clues from the others but as good as Porte was in the Dauphiné’s TT which had two climbs he’s unlikely to win today, the course is for the powerful specialists.

    Tony Martin, fast:

    Sagan, always a favourite:

    Good luck all, I'm looking forward to it.

    Porcentaje de los hogares europeos con mascotas (2012): gatos




    Al contrario que en Europa, en Estados Unidos el promedio de perros en los hogares es mayor que el de gatos: en EE.UU. hay perros en el 36% de los hogares y gatos en el 30% de las casas. En Europa se invierte la tendencia: 33% de gatos y 28% de gatos. Las otras especies que se encuentran el los hogares europeos son los pájaros domésticos (en el 19% de los hogares); los pequeños mamíferos, en especial roedores (10,4%), los peces (4,6%) y los reptiles (3,8%). Adicionalmente, en Estados Unidos un 1,5% de los hogares poseen al menos un caballo.

    Rumanía es, proporcionalmente, el país europeo que lidera el ranking de perros y gatos en el hogar: en el 45% de los hogares rumanos hay al menos un animal de cada especie. Las mascotas son mucho más comunes en los países del Este de Europa: República Checa, Polonia, Lituania, Hungría, Eslovenia y Letonia están entre los primeros puestos. Los turcos cierran la lista en ambos casos con algo más de 1 millón de perros y 3 millones de gatos en total.

    Por contra, en Turquía se estima que hay 11 millones de pájaros domésticos -sólo hay más en Italia, cerca de 13 millones- y 2,8 millones de peces domésticos, más que en ningún otro país europeo. Los alemanes prefieren la compañía de los pequeños mamíferos (roedores, suricatas, mofetas rayadas, etc.). Curiosamente, en Alemania hay un número similar de estas especies (unos 3,5 millones) como de perros.

    Todos estos datos proceden de Fediaf, la federación que agrupa a la industria de comida para animales domésticos en Europa. El organismo que provee de esta información en Estados Unidos es la AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association).

               Εκτός από «εκπαιδευτική» τώρα είναι και «θεραπευτική» η αιχμαλωσία και η εκμετάλλευση των ζώων   

    Εκτός από «εκπαιδευτική» τώρα είναι και «θεραπευτική» η αιχμαλωσία και η εκμετάλλευση των ζώων για τον κ. Τσαυτάρη!


    Αρμόδιος και για «θεραπευτικά» προγράμματα ο κ. Τσαυτάρης;

    Με αφορμή τις προχθεσινές δηλώσεις του Υπουργού Αγροτικής Ανάπτυξης και Τροφίμων κ. Αθανάσιου Τσαυτάρη στην Επιτροπή Παραγωγής και Εμπορίου σχετικά με την τροποποίηση του Ν. 4039/12 και ειδικότερα του άρθρου 13, το οποίο αναφέρεται στις παραστάσεις με ζώα η Πρωτοβουλία Κατά της Αιχμαλωσίας των Κητωδών έστειλε την ακόλουθη επιστολή – απάντηση.


    Αξιότιμε κύριε Υπουργέ,

    Ακούγοντας την ομιλία σας στην Επιτροπή Παραγωγής και Εμπορίου, με ΜΕΓΑΛΗ μας έκπληξη διαπιστώσαμε ότι η τροποποίηση του Νόμου 4039/12, η οποία τόσο αναστάτωσε την Ελληνική και την παγκόσμια κοινή γνώμη, γίνεται τελικά με σκοπό τη χρησιμοποίηση δελφινιών για «θεραπευτικούς» σκοπούς!!

    Κατ’ αρχήν, θα θέλαμε να τονίσουμε ότι η προτεινόμενη τροπολογία ΔΕΝ αναφέρει σε κανένα σημείο τη χρησιμοποίηση δελφινιών σε προγράμματα δελφινοθεραπείας (Dolphin-Assisted Therapy – DAT), αλλά αναφέρεται ξεκάθαρα στη χρησιμοποίηση ζώων σε παραστάσεις για δήθεν "εκπαιδευτικούς" σκοπούς. Έχουμε εκφράσει τις απόψεις μας σχετικά με την εκπαιδευτική χρησιμότητα των παραστάσεων με ζώα, η οποία όχι μόνο είναι ανύπαρκτη, αλλά αντιθέτως, η παρακολούθηση παραστάσεων με ζώα είναι εντελώς «αντι-εκπαιδευτική». Πέρα από αυτό όμως, θεωρούμε ότι ένα τόσο σημαντικό θέμα όπως είναι η έγκριση και η διεξαγωγή προγραμμάτων για θεραπευτικούς σκοπούς δεν είναι αρμοδιότητα του ΥΠΑΑΤ, και ότι είναι ένα θέμα που δεν έχει καμία απολύτως θέση σε αυτό το νομοσχέδιο, και μάλιστα με τόσο συνοπτικές διαδικασίες. Γι΄αυτό και θεωρούμε ότι η προτεινόμενη τροποποίηση της τροποποίησης, καθιστά την διάταξη ακόμη περισσότερο φωτογραφική. Οι παραστάσεις με ζώα δεν μπορούν, σε καμια περίπτωση, να δημιουργήσουν την οποιανδήποτε ευαισθητοποίηση, και η χρησιμοποίηση δελφινιών για θεραπευτικούς σκοπούς θα έπρεπε να θεσμοθετηθεί με άλλον νόμο και όχι με τον υπό συζήτηση. Μία τέτοια απόφαση θα έπρεπε να ληφθεί κατόπιν ενδελεχούς έρευνας και μελέτης, δεδομένου μάλιστα ότι έχει να κάνει με τόσο ευαίσθητες και ευάλωτες ομάδες ανθρώπων, οι οποίοι είναι όχι μόνον άρρωστοι αλλά και απελπισμένοι και εύκολα μπορεί να γίνουν αντικείμενο εκμετάλλευσης.

    Η δελφινοθεραπεία είναι μια επιστημονικά αμφισβητούμενη μέθοδος της γενικότερης animal assisted therapy, η οποία δεν θα πρέπει να συγχέεται με την χρησιμοποίηση ζώων ως assistance animals, όπως είναι οι σκύλοι οδηγοί τυφλών, στους οποίους αστόχως αναφερθήκατε στην ομιλία σας. To animal assisted therapy έχει θαυμάσια αποτελέσματα με ΚΑΤΟΙΚΙΔΙΑ ΖΩΑ, όπως πχ σκύλους και άλογα. Η εφαρμογή του με άγρια ζώα, όπως τα δελφίνια, είναι εξαιρετικά προβληματική, γι' αυτό και η δελφινοθεραπεία αμφισβητείται σοβαρά από τους ειδικούς επιστήμονες σε ολόκληρο τον κόσμο. Το θέμα είναι τεράστιο για να εξαντληθεί μεταξύ ημών και υμών. Σε αυτήν την επιστολή, σάς παραθέτουμε απλώς κάποια στοιχεία και μελέτες σχετικά με τη δελφινοθεραπεία, και παρακαλούμε πολύ να τα λάβετε σοβαρά υπόψη σας.

    Οι υποστηρικτές της θεραπευτικής αυτής μεθόδου, διαφημίζουν την αποτελεσματικότητά της σε μια μεγάλη γκάμα ασθενειών, που κυμαίνεται από αυτισμό και επιληψία μέχρι καρκίνο και AIDS. Ωστόσο, δεν υπάρχουν επιστημονικά στοιχεία που να τεκμηριώνουν τους ισχυρισμούς αυτούς. Αντιθέτως, ένα πλήθος επιστημονικών στοιχείων καταδεικνύει ότι η δελφινοθεραπεία (DAT), εκτός από το ότι λειτουργεί σαν ψευδοφάρμακο (placebo), σχετίζεται με ενδεχόμενους κινδύνους τόσο για τους ανθρώπους όσο και τα δελφίνια. Η ανθρώπινη βλάβη μπορεί να περιλαμβάνει άμεση ζημία από επιθετική συμπεριφορά των δελφινιών, έως βακτηριακές, ιογενείς ή μυκητιασικές λοιμώξεις. Δεν είναι δύσκολο να αντιληφθεί κανείς ότι η επαφή με δελφίνια τα οποία - είτε έχουν γεννηθεί στην αιχμαλωσία είτε έχουν συλληφθεί από τη θάλασσα - είναι και παραμένουν ζώα άγρια, εγκυμονεί κινδύνους τόσο για τα ίδια όσο και για τους ανθρώπους. Δεν είναι λίγες οι φορές, κατά τις οποίες δελφίνια θαλασσίων πάρκων παρουσίασαν διαταραγμένη και επιθετική συμπεριφορά, κάτω από τις στρεσσογόνες συνθήκες της αιχμαλωσίας και τον εξαναγκασμό τους σε στενή επαφή με τους ανθρώπους, και θα πρέπει να λάβετε υπόψη σας ότι έχουν αναφερθεί πάμπολλα ατυχήματα σε παρόμοιες εγκαταστάσεις στο εξωτερικό, ατυχήματα που ξεκινούν από δαγκώματα και φτάνουν μέχρι σοβαρά κατάγματα και θλάσεις εσωτερικών οργάνων που απαιτούν μακροχρόνια νοσηλεία. Η δε κάκωση, την οποία υφίστανται τα ίδια τα ζώα, περιγράφεται από την νευροεπιστήμονα του πανεπιστημίου του Emory Lori Marinο, με δύο λόγια, ως εξής: «Καταλαβαίνω γιατί οι απελπισμένοι άνθρωποι συνεχίζουν να καταφεύγουν σε προγράμματα δελφινοθεραπείας, αναζητώντας γιατρειά. Το πιο θλιβερό σε όλη αυτήν την ιστορία όμως είναι ότι αυτοί οι άνθρωποι δεν θα μπορέσουν να καταλάβουν ποτέ ότι τα δελφίνια στα οποία αναζητούν παρηγοριά, είναι τόσο άρρωστα ψυχολογικά και σωματικά, όσο τουλάχιστον και αυτοί οι ίδιοι». (Lori Marino, Dolphins are not healers, Ιούνιος 2013)

    «Στο επίκεντρο όλων αυτών των προγραμμάτων θεραπείας είναι η εκμετάλλευση ευάλωτων ατόμων και ευάλωτων δελφινιών.», δηλώνει σήμερα η ίδια η ιδρύτρια της δελφινοθεραπείας, Dr Betsy Smith, η οποία κάποτε πίστευε ότι τα δελφίνια μπορούσαν να χρησιμοποιηθούν για τη θεραπεία παιδιών με ειδικές ανάγκες, στην πορεία όμως αναθεώρησε τις απόψεις της.
