Theodoor Rombouts (Antwerp 1597–1637 Antwerp), Card Players in an InteriorOil on canvas (Signed lower right: T. ROMBOVTS), 147 x 186 cm© 2017 London Art Week

ProvenanceBaron Corneille Osy de Zegwart (1757–1831); and by descent to Jean Osy de Zegwart (1792– 1866). And by descent to Baron Edouard Osy de Zegwart (1832–1900), governor of Antwerp. And by descent to Baroness Osy de Zegwart and by descent in her family until 2014.

NoteTheodoor Rombouts was the primary exponent of Flemish Caravaggism, a brief but important artistic phenomenon that peaked in the 1620s. Born in Antwerp in 1597, the history and genre painter is best known for his large-scale secular works depicting merry companies, music scenes and card-playing characters in compact compositions. His half-length figures, firmly modelled and always lively, wear theatrical costumes and are set in chiaroscuro lighting typical of the Flemish Caravaggisti, also known as the Antwerp Tenebrosi. The artist began as a pupil of François van Lanckvelt in 1608 and then studied under Abraham Janssens (c.1575–1632), whose influence is evident throughout his career. Sometime after drafting his last will and testament in 1616 Rombouts left for Rome where he quickly embraced the style of Caravaggio (1571–1610) and Bartolomeo Manfredi (1582–1622). There is little known about his time in Italy but the documentation that does exist places the artist in the Roman parish of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte in 1620, which means that Dirck van Baburen (c.1592/93–1624), David de Haen (1585–1622) and Manfredi were living nearby. Enticed by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Rombouts also probably worked in Florence. Rombouts returned to his native city in 1625; he became a master in the painters' guild and a dean of the guild from 1629 to 1630. In 1627 he married Anna van Thielen, the sister of one of his pupils, flower painter Jan Philip van Thielen (1618–1667). The couple welcomed the birth of their daughter, Anna Maria, the following year. The successful artist painted mostly for private clients and for the open market but he also executed some altarpieces, with most commissions coming from Ghent. Though best known for his work in the Caravaggesque idiom, Rombouts's artistic development after returning to Antwerp followed popular taste. As the fashionable interest in Caravaggism began to wane after 1630, the savvy artist moved in the direction of Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) and Anthony van Dyck (1599–1641), towards greater refinement in his palette and surfaces. According to Leonard J. Slatkes, Rombouts's works were always only superficially Caravaggesque and were more profoundly shaped by the influences of his many Flemish baroque contemporaries.1 Little is known of his Antwerp workshop but his pupils included Nicolaas van Eyck (1617–1679), Jan Philip van Thielen and Paulus Robyns. Near the end of his life he attempted to replicate a house and studio in imitation of Rubens. The costly endeavour apparently incurred heavy debts, which he never had the opportunity to resolve due to his untimely death in 1637. The present work, Card Players in an Interior, belongs among the finest and most representative works of Rombouts's Caravaggesque genre scenes. Recalling Manfredi's merry company pictures, there is a marked sense of monumentality to the five figures that are arranged around a carpeted table, engaged in a game of cards. The individuals are realistic and expressive; the scene appears convincingly spontaneous and natural. Rombouts introduces repoussoir figures that confront the viewer and direct attention to the central bearded figure who stares down at his hand of cards, presumably a self-portrait. Rombouts also included a portrait of his wife, Anna, in the hatted figure seated beside him. The inclusion of self-portraits and portraits of family members was not unusual in Dutch and Flemish genre painting, despite the potentially negative associations of moralising subjects. Card playing was perceived as a time-waster at best and, at worst, was associated with any number of disreputable behaviours. Though no alcohol is depicted, coins are strewn about the table: a reference to the ‘unwholesome' activity of gambling. Portraits of Rombouts, his wife and even his young daughter can be seen in another of his works, The Backgammon Players, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh (fig. 1), in which the lavishly dressed soldier bears the artist's likeness. This comparison not only confirms the identities of the Theodoor and Anna in our picture but also helps to date it. The Backgammon Players, painted in 1634, demonstrates Rombouts's move away from Caravaggism towards the prevailing baroque style as it evolved in Antwerp. Unlike our picture, the Raleigh composition is set in a deeper space with vaguely classicising figures. The palette is brighter, the lighting more diffuse and the costumes more sophisticated. The luxurious shimmering fabrics speak of the direct influence of Rubens and Van Dyck. Our Card Players was certainly produced earlier when Rombouts was still painting under the influence of Roman Caravaggism, adeptly applying chiaroscuro and local colour to his rustically expressive scenes.

Matthias Stomer (c.1600–after 1652), The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomewcirca 1630-5. Oil on canvas, 44 x 62 in. (111.8 x 157.5 cm.) © 2017 London Art Week

Note: Matthias Stomer ranks among the most important and prolific Netherlandish masters of the seventeenth century who were active in Italy. This talented painter was among the last of the famed Dutch Caravaggisti. Although Stomer's birthplace cannot be documented with any certainty, the name Stom is of Southern Netherlandish (Flemish) derivation and it is possible that he emigrated from this region, like so many of his countrymen, to the Dutch Republic. Here he might have received his artistic training in Utrecht or possibly Amersfoort. The influence of Dutch painters from both those towns in terms of style and subject matter is readily detectable in his earliest work, in particular the influence of the prominent Utrecht painter, Gerrit van Honthorst, as well as that of Hendrick ter Brugghen, Joachim Wtewael or the venerable Abraham Bloemaert. In 1630 Stomer travelled to Rome and stayed there until around 1635. Our picture, The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew, was painted during this Roman period and is an important picture within his overall oeuvre. Saint Bartholomew is traditionally identified as one of Christ's original twelve apostles. After the Resurrection, Bartholomew is believed to have preached the gospel in India and Armenia. In the latter region, he was flayed alive and then hung upside down for refusing to worship idols. In Stomer's dramatic canvas, the doomed saint is posed frontally in half-length. He is stripped to his loincloth and one of the executioners has already begun his grisly task. Stomer has added the remarkable motif of a figure in a striking terracotta-coloured robe at the far left, perhaps a pagan priest, who holds a golden statuette of Minerva before the elderly saint, thereby contextualising the immediate cause of his martyrdom. Stomer was probably familiar with a picture of the saint's martyrdom painted in Rome by the French Caravaggist Valentin de Boulogne, datable to c.1616.

Hollywood is a city in Broward County, Florida, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The average temperature is between 68 and 83 degrees. As of July 1, 2015 Hollywood has a population of 149,728. Founded in 1925, the city grew rapidly in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now the twelfth largest city in Florida. Hollywood is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census.

Joseph W. Young founded the city in 1925. He dreamed of building a motion picture colony on the East Coast of the United States and named the town after Hollywood, California. Young bought up thousands of acres of land around 1920, and named his new town "Hollywood by the Sea" to distinguish it from his other real estate venture, "Hollywood in the Hills", in New York

Young had a vision of having lakes, golf courses, a luxury beach hotel, country clubs, and a main street, Hollywood Boulevard. After the 1926 Miami hurricane, Hollywood was severely damaged; local newspapers reported that Hollywood was second only to Miami in losses from the storm. Following upon Young's death in 1934, the city encountered more terrific hurricanes and not only that, but the stock market crashed with personal financial misfortunes. It felt as though the city was tumbling slowly piece by piece with all of those tragic events taking place.

Hollywood is a planned city. On Hollywood Boulevard is the Mediterranean-style Joseph Young Mansion, built around 1921, making it one of the oldest houses in Hollywood.

          Mike Leach Says He Was 'Cheated out of' Contract Salary at Texas Tech   

Former Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Mike Leach told USA Today's Brent Schrotenboer he still harbors resentment toward his ex-employer because he believes he was "cheated out" of portions of his salary.

Leach, who is now the head coach for the Washington State Cougars, claimed Texas Tech owes him $2.5 million following his firing in 2009 for allegedly mistreating Adam James after he suffered a concussion. 

"This thing won’t really go away," Leach said. "And it’ll never go away until this thing is settled. And it should be settled, because why should the future generation bear the black eye and the cloud that their university cheated their most successful coach in history? And why should I bear that, some of the 10 most productive years of my career? I was cheated out of my salary, and all the great memories that I, fans, players and coaches had, are diminished."

Leach was fired eight years ago after he allegedly told a team trainer to take James, who could not practice because of a head injury, "to the darkest place, to clean out the equipment and to make sure that he could not sit or lean," according to

However, as Schrotenboer noted, allegations levied against Leach were never substantiated. 

"I didn’t lock Adam James anywhere. I didn’t tell Adam James to go anywhere," Leach said. "I told the trainer to get him off the field."

Leach proceeded to sue Texas Tech for damages, but lost and was later denied an appeal at the state Supreme Court level in 2012. A year earlier, an Appellate Court ruled in Texas Tech's favor after Leach filed a wrongful termination suit.

Ouoh... ah... Ouoh... ah... Ouoh...

You know you love me, I know you care
Just shout whenever, and I'll be there
You want my love, you want my heart
And we will never, ever, ever be apart.

Are we an item? Girl, quit playing
We're just friends, what are you saying?
Say there's another and look right in my eyes
My first love broke my heart for the first time.

And I'm was like, baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I thought you'd always be mine, mine.
Baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I thought you'd always be mine.

For you, I would have done whatever
And I just can't believe we ain't together
And I'm gotta play it cool, `cause I'm losing you
I'll buy you anything, I'll buy you any ring
`Cause I'm in pieces, baby fix me
Just shake `til you wake me from this bad dream
I'm goin' down, down, down
And I just can't believe my first love won't be around.

And I'm was like, baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I thought you'd always be mine, mine.
Baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I'm like baby, baby, baby no
I thought you'd always be mine.

When I was 13, I had my first love
There was nobody that compared to my baby
And nobody came between us who could ever come above
She had me going crazy, oh I was starstruck
She woke me up daily, don't need no Starbucks
She made my heart pound
I skip a beat when I see her in the street
And at school on the playground
But I really wanna see her on a weekend
She know she got me dazin' 'cause she was so amazin'
And now my heart is breakin' but I just keep on sayin'

Baby, baby, baby ouh

I'm like baby, baby, baby no

          Comment on iOS 10.3.2 Jailbreak Tool Update Available with New Details by newbruclass   
As long as these companies especially Pangu are not declaring on releasing jailbreak tools publicly, there will be no jailbreak tools and that in turn means jailbreaking is considered dead technically. And if no one is declaring to release said jailbreak tools, then that is still considered dead. Thus, until real and TRUTHFUL announcements are made especially by still silent Pangu which many people are still delusional of, R.I.P. to those users who are on 10.2.1 and so onwards. The last chance was 10.2 and Yalu102 despite its Semi-Untethered status.

          Commentary: Truly honoring our veterans   

Imagine a scenario in which a candidate for U.S. Senate urges people to boycott the largest city in his or her state. That’s what retired U.S. Air Force Col. Rob Maness, who twice lost races for the Senate, did last week by suggesting in a radio interview that American veterans avoid New Orleans in response to the removal of four Confederate-
era statues.

Speaking on the syndicated Lars Larson Show, Maness said veterans should stay away from New Orleans, including those set to attend the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ (VFW) 118th annual convention here next month.…

You should be with Cookie. He’s a little anxious, but I bet you’ll be able to calm him down just fine.” At press time, Burke was guiding a shy camper toward a rambunctious horse named Shadow as though she were a naïve maiden being pressured into wedding the town ...

          Kisah Anis Al-Idrus Minta Taja Kek Tapi Ditolak   
Perkara biasa sebenarnya bila selebriti mohon tajaan untuk hari perkahwinan mereka. Ada tajaan yang datang sendiri, ada tajaan yang kita kena mencari. Apa pun secara mudahnya, ia merupakan marketing dua hala yang memberikan faedah win win situation buat kedua belah pihak. 

Namun berbeza dengan kes yang terjadi kepada pelakon wanita, Anis Al-Idrus. Ringkasnya, melalui satu screenshot dari dari pemegang akaun @bubbleqa di Twitter, dia mendakwa pembantu pelakon berkenaan telah memohon tajaan sekotak cupcake.

Namun @bubbleqa ini tidak mengenali Anis Al-Idrus dan enggan menaja sekotak cupcake tersebut. Dalam masa yang sama, tindakan dia berkongsikan perbualan tersebut juga menimbulkan rasa tidak puas hati pembantu pelakon wanita berkenaan.
Malah perbualan mereka terus dikongsikan lagi di laman Twitter. Apa pun, @bubbleqa punya jawapan sendiri di atas tindakannya itu.
Okay, ceritanya belum habis di sini. Setelah wanita berkenaan enggan menaja permintaan pembantu Anis Al-Idrus, seorang lelaki menyatakan rasa berminat untuk menaja cupcake untuk pasangan selebriti ini. Baguslah bukan sebab ada orang mahu taja?
Tapi melalui screenshot @NiniNell di Twitter, lain pula ceritanya apabila wanita yang enggan menaja tadi mempersoalkan pula keikhlasan lelaki berkenaan yang mahu menaja permintaan pembantu Anis Al Idrus.
Perkara tersebut dalam masa yang sama menimbulkan pelbagai reaksi di kalangan pengguna laman Twitter. Ada yang berpihak kepada wanita berkenaan dan ada juga yang berpihak kepada Anis Al Idrus.
Lebih menarik lagi, nampaknya makin ramai yang berminat untuk menaja hari bahagia pelakon wanita berkenaan sementara lelaki yang berminat untuk menaja cupcake untuk Anis juga turut mendapat perhatian daripada warga laman sosial yang lain.
Inilah realiti di zaman berlandaskan sosial media ini. Elok cara guna, dapat benda baik dan begitulah sebaliknya. Apa pun, semoga majlis Anis dan pasangan nanti akan berjalan dengan lancar. Sekian sahaja drama di akhir Ramadan ini untuk tatapan anda semua.

          “Saya Gadis Paling Beruntung Di Dunia” - Mawar Rashid   
Tahniah diucapkan kepada Mawar Rashid yang telah menerima lamaran kekasihnya, Raf Yaakob semalam. Menerusi Instagram, Mawar berkongsikan detik paling gembira dalam hidupnya itu apabila dilamar dengan taburan kelopak bunga ros mengilingi mereka .

“Saya harus akui tiada seorang pun pernah datang melamar saya sebelum ini dan saya gembira dan berharap dia adalah yang pertama dan terakhir, InsyaAllah. Untuk kejutan ini, saya diberitahu oleh jurugambar bahawa dia melakukan semua ini dengan sendiri”

“Dari memetik kelopak mawar satu demi satu, menyusun dan menyalakan lilin dengan beberapa kejutan lain. Saya nampak usahanya untuk membuatkan saya gembira dan saya benar-benar tersentuh. Dapat saya rasakan saya adalah gadis yang paling beruntung di dunia,” katanya kepada m Star Online.

Ketika dilamar, pasangan ini berada dalam satu bulatan yang dikelilingi kelopak bunga ros merah dan putih. Manakala Raf pula melutut menghulurkan cincin kepada Mawar untuk melamarnya. Menerusi perkongsian itu, peminat sangat gembira dengan berita yang disampaikan.

Nampak gayanya macam dah tak lama dapat merasa nasi minyak Mawar. Semoga segala persiapan perkahwinan pasangan ini akan berjalan dengan lancar dan dipermudahkan
          'Kau siapa nak masuk campur hal rumah tangga aku? Dahlah tak pakai tudung!'   
SEPANG, SELANGOR - "Hal rumah tangga jangan dibawa ke tempat awam, malu orang tengok" demikian kata netizen selepas membaca perkongsian dari Suri Kempe yang dimuat naik jam 6.49 petang semalam.


Dalam kejadian yang berlaku di KLIA, Suri dan rakannya ternampak seorang lelaki sedang mengasari isterinya. Niat Suri mahu membantu menenangkan keadaan, namun dia pula dimarahi lelaki terbabit.

So this happened as Zuly and I tried to catch the train back from KLIA today. We walked down the escalators and as we came down the final one towards to end of the hallway, I saw some guy pushing and shoving who I presumed to either be his girlfriend or wife repeatedly. She managed to escape his grasp and he was about to go after her:

Me: "Eh, tolong jangan nak belasah-belasah girlfriend."

As*hole: "Eh, itu isteri saya!" (as if that made it all ok!)

Me: "Ha, kalau isteri lagilah jangan pukul macam gitu. Dah kenapa?"

As*hole: "Apa masalah sekarang ni?" (trying to get in my face and puffing his chest)
Meanwhile, his friend who is standing behind several pieces of luggage on the side keeps telling me to not to get involved.

Me: "Eh, kalau dia nak pukul bini dia macam ni, bukan saja masalah saya, tetapi masalah semua orang kat sini. Boleh aje saya report."

As*hole: "Report? Report ah!!! Bitch! Jangan nak masuk campur hal saya."

Wife comes along and tries to apologize for her husband's behavior. After she assured me she was okay, suddenly the asshole yells,

"Kau ni siapa nak masuk campur hal aku? Dahlah tak pakai tudung!!"

I was walking away at this point, but when he yelled that out I turned around, and yelled back.

"Hey! Lelaki melayu dayus, dahlah pukul bini and mulut macam sial. Ada hati nak kutuk saya tak pakai tudung? Inilah masalahnya kalau dah bodoh!" and I turn and walk away.

Of course, the stupid name calling doesn't stop and I can hear him cussing in the background. When I finally remembered that it would make sense to take a picture of him, I was already behind the turnstile. But whenever I pointed the phone towards him, he would attempt to hide behind someone. And flick me off on the side.

Sementara itu di media sosial, netizen memuji tindakan Suri yang cuba melindungi wanita berkenaan dari terus dikasari lelaki dayus itu.

"Itulah yang sepatutnya dilakukan oleh orang awam apabila ternampak kejadian seperti ini walaupun ramai yang akan bersikap seperti lelaki dayus itu, tak nak campur urusan rumah tangga orang lain.

"Lelaki yang jerit tak pakai tudung tu memang tak ada modal lain. Otak singkat, perangai hodoh," kata Rohana.

          Ros Saksi Mawar Rashid Dilamar! 'So Sweetttt'    
EHEM! Sweet Nampak?  Macam dalam drama love story pula apabila pelakon Mawar Rashid   menerima kejutan dilamar kekasih hatinya, Raf Yaakob dalam suasana penuh romantis!!

Mawar, 23, memuatnaik sekeping gambar menerusi akaun Instagramnya untuk  memaklumkan dia sudah dilamar adik kepada penyanyi Datuk Fazley Yaakob.

Lamaran itu bersaksikan taburan kelopak bunga ros merah dan putih yang turut disusun menjadi satu ayat berbunyi, Will U Marry Me?

"Saya harus akui tiada seorang pun pernah datang melamar  saya sebelum ini dan saya gembira dan berharap dia adalah yang pertama dan terakhir, InsyaAllah.

“Untuk kejutan ini, saya diberitahu oleh jurugambar bahawa dia (Raf) melakukan semua ini dengan sendiri. Dari memetik kelopak mawar satu demi satu, susun satu persatu, menyusun dan menyalakan lilin dengan beberapa kejutan lain.

“Saya nampak usahanya untuk membuatkan saya gembira dan saya benar-benar tersentuh. Dapat saya rasakan saya adalah gadis yang paling beruntung di dunia!" tulisnya.

Mawar Rashid menenerima kejutan dilamar oleh Raf. Foto dari Instagram Mawar.
Ketika dilamar, Raf dan Mawar berada dalam satu bulatan yang dikelilingi kelopak bunga ros merah dan putih.

Dalam keadaan berlutut, Raf, 31,  yang pada ketika itu mengenakan kemeja putih dan berseluar jeans hitam menghulurkan cincin kepada Mawar  yang masih dalam keadaan terkejut (menutup mulut denga kedua telapak tangan).

Aksi romantis pasangan ini turut menerima ucapan tahniah rakan-rakan artis dan netizen selain ramai yang turut memuji sifat romantik Raf terhadap bekas finalis Dewi Remaja 2010 itu.

Mawar dalam kenyataannya kepada mStar Online sebelum ini memberitahu dia serius dengan hubungan tersebut dan tidak mahu menyembunyikan perasaan bahagia berkenaan bersama peminat.

"Hubungan kami semakin serius dan tiada apa yang perlu disembunyikan tentang apa yang saya rasa bersama pengikut laman sosial saya. Lagi pula saya agak yakin dengan kesungguhan dia," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, Mawar berkata, Raf yang juga seorang pelakon dan duda itu mempunyai ciri-ciri lelaki yang diimpikannya. 

"Biarpun dia berstatus duda tapi saya terima dia seadanya," ujar Mawar.

          This Way to the Ingress: Keeping Stuff Dry and Clean with IP and NEMA   

When designing a piece of hardware that has even the faintest chance of being exposed to the elements, it’s best to repeat this mantra: water finds a way. No matter how much you try to shield a project from rain, splashing, or even just humid air, if you haven’t taken precautions to seal your enclosure, I’ll bet you find evidence of water when you open it up. Water always wins, and while that might not be a death knell for your project, it’s probably not going to help. And water isn’t the only problem that outdoor or rough-service installations face. …read more

Lottery officials need to take into account how the ticket was aquired not just who's name is on the back of the ticket. If the ticket was abtained fraudulently, then no money should be awarded and the person making the fraudulent claim should go to prison.

If lottery officials didn't take into account how the ticket was aquired, then it would be open season for any convenience store clerk to scam a customer out of their winning ticket.

And then the GM said, “We used to do that!”

It was in late 1987, and I was conducting an in-dealership workshop focused on Financial and Operational Planning and Controls. I was describing an F&I process that I had recommended to increase service contract penetration, when the general manager said, “We used to do that.” In response to his statement, I asked, “Did it work?” “Absolutely,” he answered. I was tempted to say, “Then why did you stop doing it?”, but I was new to the consulting business and didn’t want to risk offending one of my few clients. As it turns out, it was probably just as well that I refrained from asking that question. Because in my 30 years of training and consulting, if I’ve heard a client-dealer or manager say, “We used to do that” once, I’ve heard it five hundred times. And in the numerous times that I’ve asked, “Why did you stop?”, I’ve never gotten a good answer (but rather mostly blank stares).Well, the two real reasons for why they stopped aren’t all that hard to identify:Either new people (managers, producers, or both) have joined the organization and brought with them their own way of doing things, orThe activity or process that was discontinued was never well-anchored in the organization to begin with.I’ve written previously about dealership cultural needs and deficiencies. One of the tenets of any strong business culture is Accountability Management. And one of the primary elements of effective accountability management in an automotive dealership is to:Develop and implement a systemic structure. (Because we know that dissimilar people operating within a systemic structure will produce similar results.)The “systemic structure” refers to clearly defined processes. So when we have a proven process that consistently produces measurable and predictable results, that process must become embedded within the culture of our dealership. It needs to be continually savored, enhanced, honored, and talked about.Would you like to improve your dealership culture so you’ll never get caught saying, “We used to do that?” Review my web site at and learn how Garry House & Associates provides Value First, and then call me at 561-744-2627. I’ll listen and recommend a solution that’s right for you and your team.Warmest regards,Garry House                                See More

          Comment on Keith Darrell: Shattering Hearts of Stone by Concerned Christian   
Kieth has often come to my university, the University of Idaho, and incited little but hateful arguments and crass insults. When asked about specific bible verses, and to compare them to other translations or interpretations to better understand the meaning of any one translation, he resorted to calling the science of translation as "a semantic tool of liberals". When anyone with legitimate knowledge of the Bible asked him any sort of question, he immediately would say that, "these are what I'm here to fight against; those who think they know the truth when there is no truth but the Bible." Now, obviously this is no way to answer legitimate questions, but what was more shocking was the fact that he would take time then afterwards to insult the individual who asked the question in a relentlessly cruel and ignorant manner. He accused people of having evil parents, he accused the entire audience of being rapists and sexual abusers, he told myself and others that he "could just tell" that we were abused as kids, and then proceeded to tell us that we had deserved it for turning away from the God that we must surely have known since birth. What's more, his knowledge of the actual bible seems greatly lacking, as myself and other students were forced to ask him about claims he was making which were unsupported by the Biblical text. For example, he told a colleague of mine that because my colleague was formerly Christian and turned away, he could never receive repentance even if he returned to living life the way the Bible dictates. This is obviously not supported in the text, let alone an incredibly unprofessional, rude, and blatantly uneducated thing to say. If your intention within this organization is to spread God's word, I suggest you either lean upon a stronger speaker, or simply redirect him to the text which he is supposedly preaching. What's more, Keith had a long tangent about his own childhood traumas which he has actively suppressed which make me incredibly sad for him. There are an innumerable many Christians who understand that without coming to peace with the psychological battle within, one can never truly live the life of God though. Living as God tells you comes from pure love of God, not a twisted vengeance towards their abuser through God's wrath, or using faith to validate self-denigrating thoughts and actions.
          My dreams are finally coming true...   
Sometimes I get really nervous when strangers read my blog, some of the things I've written are so personal and endearing to me I wonder how will people react when they read it too personal to share, how do I draw the thin line of sharing my inner thoughts and trying to pick which ones get audited and then hidden somewhere else under my subconscious?

Bali..yes I've written a lot about Bali in my recent posts, the charm of the little island has finally come creeping into my soul and surprises me along the way. Traveling every other week to Bali at the beginning was painful, mentally than physically as I'm not used to shorts jolts of adjusting quickly to being in a new I recently learned too (I guess I thrived in a familiar place, my comfort zone and I'm sure most people are - as much as I want to be known as the adventurous Sagittarian). As a co-owner of a recent boutique in Potato Head Beach Club Bali called Eleven, officially opened two days ago, one of my responsibilities is to make sure everything is well placed, running in order and all merchandised accordingly. We all divide our jobs (four of us) pretty equal, however I on the other hand like being the queen bee and so everything has it's sacrifice. Being the queen bee means you are the first person everyone calls for when things does not go right, you get chased by both my partners and my brother and his partner. But being a queen bee gives you power over everyone else, and that I think that is an "evil" trait I can't let go... not yet at least...for now.

The opening of Potato Head Beach Club Bali on the 29th of December attracted 5000 people in and out throughout the night! It was one of the most anticipated party of the year and boy was it a success! All the VIP guests arriving from 8 to 10 pm had to go through Eleven and OMG I didn't realize Bali has a LOT of CHIC people, I thought they would all be wearing all these sandals and khakis (there are still some)..but wow some where wearing purple linen shirts over burgundy pants, beautiful silver necklaces, checkered preppy sports jackets, leather french soles, and ahh I can't wait to post the photos! (still being edited)

I think I gave about 500 - 800 Eleven business cards to all the guests and every time I handed a card I tell them "Come next time and shop cos Eleven is now opened!" and most of them were very enthusiastic. Most guests were in party mood so I knew as much as we want to sell and sell it will take a couple of days for them to come back again. I had a lot of fun just seeing all these mix of people from all the different races coming through... My creative juice is flowing and flowing, I can't wait to release my line, it'll be men shirts for now, with a strong emphasis on fabrics the patterns with checks, plaids and a few embroidered details. It will be called yes, you guess it right "EMMELYN". I'm proud of my name, and it's very unique...don't you think so? a feminine menswear line, for someone like my brother, who is more consciously aware of fashion than I am :)

I'll be flying to Bali again the next couple of days, to make sure everything is running in order. My mom is coming with me, she said she wants to learn how to surf, sure why not... and my brother is also moving out to a new villa, and yes that includes me and I'm really excited because it's our own place, and he's getting married so it's important that he has his own enclave when wifey comes with him. It didn't feel like I was working when I was in Bali, perhaps because I am now truly doing something I really love and I can't believe my dreams are finally coming true, I have it in my hands. I can touch it, feel it and I know it's up to me to make it successful. A lot of things had happened along the way, but it was all well worth it, and it made me and my partners closer and stronger as team. I also met a lot of new people, genuine individuals who are now good friends, some are visitors of the island, and some left already to fulfill their own dreams. I can only wish that they will find their own dream catchers, grab it and truly hold on to it. The hardest part is always the process of getting there, of the uncertainties not knowing whether you are on the right path, always doubting your decisions and losing sleep over it. I'm still learning and curving my way around juggling two equally challenging jobs of maintaining Potato Head Jakarta and running this new shop. Jakarta is so different to Bali, I arrived last night and find that the city is so flat, and yet I woke up this morning and when I looked into my garden and knowing I had a good night sleep on my own bed I felt refreshed again and Bali is now just a good memory, with sweet glimpses of the best times I had with new friends and my partners.

Close the chapter they say and move on. I will be back very soon, too soon I think but it's okay, I need to get my system used to all these sudden jolts. Jolts of joy I hope and more blood, sweat and tears to come...Let's play!

          the sweetest memory in egypt   

I was going to study on a normal day
And here's what happened on my way
I started running down the stairs
Digging into my pockets for the fares

Like most Egyptians I was running late
I wanted to catch bus number eight

It gets some to the underground up

In the bus I was looking for seat
No place and the chairs weren't neat

I had to face besides the broken do
Where I heard nothing except the loud motor

Everybody was sweating and feeling absurd

Especially the driver who used a loud nas
ty word

With a miracle I reached the metro station
Looking toward
to reaching my destination
Deep inside the metro, people are so loving

So crowded, they were nearly hugging

The metro kept stopping again and again

People started to complain and shout out in pain

Many passengers were falling on the floor
And there was great pressure on the door
Once it opened I found myself kicked outside

At the wrong station because of the pressure inside

I went to take taxi, I was so late
I only wish I could reach my work on the same date

Unexpectedly, a taxi breaks so violently
Yet he stopped some miles away
I was determined to reach the car
When he yelled, How much will you pay?
I said, don't worry, it's not that far

When I paid he said, this isn't enough
Just look everywhere if you are not blind

Check the price and the petrol, we can't efford

I got out closed the door with a slam
And walked away, leaving behind the traffic jam

Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa?

Oleh : Dr Farrukh Saleem
Semakan Oleh : Mohd Taha Hassan

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa . For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Hanya ada 14 juta Yahudi di muka bumi ini; tujuh juta di Amerika, lima juta di Asia, dua juta di Eropah dan 100,000 di Afrika. Bagi setiap orang Yahudi ada 100 orang Muslim (1:100). Namun, jika dicampuri semua sekali, Yahudi lebih 100 kali berkuasa daripada orang Islam. Mengapa ini berlaku?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine's 'Person of the Century', was a Jew. Sigmund Freud -- id, ego, superego -- the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Nabi Isa (Jesus of Nazareth) ialah Yahudi. Albert Einstein, saintis zaman moden paling terkemuka dan disebut oleh majalah Time sebagai 'Manusia Abad ini' ialah seorang Yahudi; Sigmund Freud - melalui teori id, ego dan super-ego ialah bapa psikoanalisis, juga seorang Yahudi; begitu juga Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson dan Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by wining seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish? As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

Washington yang merupakan ibu negara Amerika Syarikat, mempunyai satu pertubuhan lobi yang amat berkuasa. Ia dikenali sebagai Jawatankuasa Hal Ehwal Awam Amerika Israel (AIPAC) yang berupaya mempengaruhi Kongres meluluskan resolusi memuji dan 'membuat apa saja' demi Israel. Washington mengetahui bahawa jika PM Ehud Olmert sedar akan wujudnya bahawa bumi ini adalah rata, maka AIPAC akan mengadakan Kongres yang ke 109 untuk meluluskan resolusi bagi memberi ucapan tahniah pada satu pertemuan yang akan diadakan bersama Olmert.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith did he belong to?

Tahukah lagi bahawa William James Sidis dengan IQ 250-300 ialah manusia tercerdik. Dia ialah Yahudi. Teka, apakah kepercayaan yang beliau miliki?

So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer: Education.

Oleh yang demikian, mengapa Yahudi terlalu berkuasa? Jawapannya: Pendidikan, pelajaran, ilmu.


Dermawan dan penyangak mata wang, George Soros ialah Yahudi. Dia menderma AS$4 bilion untuk membantu ahli sains dan universiti serata dunia.

Walter Annenberg menderma untuk membina ratusan perpustakaan berjumlah AS$2 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa mereka ini terlalu berkuasa? Mengapa umat Islam terlalu lemah?

Dianggarkan 1,476,233,470 Muslim di atas muka bumi Allah ini. Satu bilion di Asia, 400 juta di Afrika, 44 juta di Eropah dan enam juta di Amerika. Setiap lima insan manusia ialah Muslim. Setiap seorang Hindu ada dua orang Islam, setiap seorang Buddha ada dua orang Islam dan setiap seorang Yahudi ada beratus orang Islam. Mengapa orang Islam terlalu lemah?

Ini jawapannya: Terdapat 57 negara anggota OIC dan jika dicampur semua cuma ada kira-kira 500 buah universiti; atau sebuah universiti untuk setiap tiga juta orang Islam.

AS mempunyai 5,758 universiti dan India ada 8,407. Pada 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong Universiti membuat kajian 'Kedudukan Akademik Universiti-universiti Dunia' - dan menakjubkan - tiada satu pun universiti-negara Islam yang berada di puncak 500.

Data yang dikumpul dari UNDP, tahap celik huruf di negara maju ialah hampir 90 peratus dan 15 negara itu mempunyai 100 peratus celik huruf. Negara majoriti penduduk Islam, purata kadar celik huruf ialah sekitar 40 peratus dan tiada negara yang mempunyai 100 peratus semuanya celik huruf.

Sekitar 98 peratus penduduk di negara maju menamatkan sekurang-kurang sekolah rendah, sementara hanya 50 peratus di negara majoriti Islam. Sekitar 40 peratus penduduk di negara maju memasuki universiti, sementara hanya 2 peratus di negara majoriti Islam.

Negara-negara majoriti Islam mempunyai 230 ahli sains bagi setiap (per) sejuta penduduk. Di AS 4,000 per sejuta, Jepun 5,000 per sejuta. Di seluruh negara Arab, penyelidik sepenuh masa ialah 35,000 dan hanya 50 juruteknik per sejuta (berbanding di negara maju 1,000 juruteknik per sejuta).

Negara Islam membelanjakan 0.2 peratus daripada KDNK untuk penyelidikan dan pembangunan (R&D) sebaliknya, di negara maju membelanjakan 5 peratus daripada KDNKnya.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam kurang keupayaan untuk menghasilkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Akhbar harian yang dibaca oleh setiap 1,000 orang dan jumlah judul buku yang dibaca oleh setiap sejuta orang adalah dua angka tunjuk bagi menentukan sama ada ilmu pengetahuan disalurkan ke dalam masyarakat.

Di Pakistan, hanya ada 23 akhbar harian per 1,000 rakyat Pakistan sementara nisbah di Singapura ialah 360. Di UK, jumlah judul buku per juta orang ialah 2,000 sementara di Mesir ialah 20.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam gagal menyalurkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Yang menariknya, jumlah terkumpul KDNK tahunan 57 buah negara ahli OIC ialah di bawah AS$2 trilion. Amerika sahaja, menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai AS$12 trilion, China AS$8 trilion, Jepun AS$3.8 trilion dan Jerman AS$2.4 trilion.

Pengeluar minyak yang kaya, Arab Saudi, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar secara rangkuman menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan (rata-rata minyak) bernilai AS$500 bilion; Sepanyol sahaja menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai lebih AS$1 trilion, Poland AS$489 bilion dan Thailand AS$545 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa orang Islam tidak berkuasa dan orang Yahudi paling berkuasa?

Jawapannya ialah: Kurangnya ilmu. Kurangnya pendidikan dan kurangnya pelajaran.


Daripada lingkungan 12 juta orang Yahudi, hanya 0,2 % sahaja populasi dunia. ( 2 setiap dari 1000 orang)

          Σχόλιο στο Στη θάλασσα το αεροπλανοφόρο HMS Queen Elizabeth, το μεγαλύτερο πολεμικό πλοίο του Βρετανικού Ναυτικού από Gunslinger32   
Προφανώς πρόκειται για ένα σύγχρονο πλοίο, απο μόνο του όμως και χωρίς τα μέσα που θα μεταφέρει στο μέλλον είναι απλά ένα πλωτό αεροδρόμιο, που εκτός απο τα συστήματα αυτοάμυνας δεν έχει να προσφέρει κάτι παραπάνω απο μια φρεγάτα, ένα υποβρύχιο η ένα αντιτορπιλικό του RN, ωστόσο η δήλωση των Άγγλων πολιτικών ότι πρόκειται για το πιο ισχυρό πλοιο του βασιλικού ναυτικού είναι λίγο υπερβολική. Σε κάθε περίπτωση θα είναι η χαρά των υποβρυχίων κυνηγών, και ειδικά για τους συμμετέχοντες στο perisher course(και απο τα μέλη του ΝΑΤΟ που διαθέτουν υποβρύχια),<br /> οι οποίοι σύμφωνα με διάφορες αναφορές λατρεύουν τέτοιους «ισχυρούς» στόχους. 😉 <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img src="" alt="" width="700" height="" /></a> <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img src="" alt="" width="700" height="" /></a>

          Hơn 6.000 website của Việt Nam gặp sự cố trong nửa đầu năm 2017   

Tiến sỹ Nguyễn Khắc Lịch, Phó Giám đốc Trung tâm ứng cứu khẩn cấp máy tính Việt Nam (VNCERT) cho hay, trong nửa đầu năm 2017 (tính tới 27/6), không gian mạng Việt Nam đã chứng kiến nhiều vụ tấn công vào các website.

Cụ thể, có tới 1.522 website bị tấn công Phishing (lừa đảo), 989 websie bị tấn công Deface (thay đổi giao diện) và 3.792 website bị cài Malware (mã độc).

Ông Lịch cho hay, hiện nay hacker tấn công tinh vi hơn, tấn công trên diện rộng, có chủ đích. Mã độc được điều khiển và thực hiện theo kế hoạch.

Cũng theo ông Lịch, mục tiêu tấn công an toàn thông tin cũng khác trước. Hacker không chỉ đơn thuần lấy cắp thông tin cá nhân mà còn phá hủy thông tin, lợi dụng thông tin để phục vụ mục đích kinh tế, chính trị. Hacker cũng không đơn thuần theo cá nhân mà còn có tổ chức, thậm chí có tài trợ. Và, hiện nay, vấn đề chiến tranh mạng đã hiện hữu.

(Biểu đồ số liệu tấn công vào các website Việt Nam 6 tháng đầu năm 2017)

Trao đổi với phóng viên VietnamPlus, ông Hà Thế Phương, Phó Tổng giám đốc CMC Infosec khẳng định, an ninh an toàn thông tin đối với mọi cá nhân hay tổ chức đều bắt nguồn từ nhận thức.

Theo lãnh đạo của CMC, tình hình an ninh mạng 6 tháng đầu tại Việt Nam là không khả quan. Thực tế, cho dù có nhiều sự vụ lớn về an toàn thông tin xảy ra, các phương tiện truyền thông đều liên tục cảnh báo, cơ quan chức năng liên tục có công văn nhắc nhở nhưng theo khảo sát của CMC, các đơn vị sở hữu hệ thống công nghệ đa số đều thực hiện theo hình thức đối phó chứ không nhận thức đúng về mức độ nghiêm trọng của hiện trạng an ninh an toàn thông tin tại đơn vị mình.

"Lỗ hổng biết mà không vá đã nhiều nhưng sai sót trong nhận thức và hiểu biết về cách thức sử dụng Internet, lưu trữ dữ liệu hệ thống an toàn còn chiếm phần nhiều hơn," ông Phương nói.

Cũng theo vị chuyên gia này, nếu lãnh đạo cũng như chủ quản của các hệ thống công nghệ thông tin tiếp tục không coi trọng tăng cường nhận thức cũng như đầu tư cho an toàn thông tin thì Việt Nam vẫn sẽ tiếp tục nằm trong top đầu thế giới về mức độ lây nhiễm mã độc cũng như bị tấn công nằm vùng (APT)./.

          Vụ tấn công mạng toàn cầu: Mã độc mới vẫn đang hoành hành   

4 ngày sau các vụ tấn công mã độc đòi tiền chuộc mới và thủ phạm gây ra vụ tấn công mạng toàn cầu ngày 27/6 vừa qua không phải là biến thể của ransomware Petya mà là một ransomware mới chưa từng xuất hiện, hoạt động của cảng biển Rotterdam (Hà Lan) vẫn bị đình trệ nghiêm trọng.

Truyền thông Hà Lan ngày 30/6 đưa tin hệ thống cầu cảng container tại cảng Rotterdam hiện vẫn chưa thể hoạt động trở lại, từ đó ảnh hưởng tới các khu vực khác của cảng biển tại Hà Lan này.

Hàng nghìn máy tính bị tê liệt trong khi nhiều cảng biển, nhà máy và văn phòng trên thế giới đã phải đóng cửa do vụ tấn công mạng này.

Sau loạt vụ tấn công mới này, nhiều chuyên gia đánh giá việc tìm ra giải pháp cho cuộc tấn công mạng lần này có thể sẽ kéo dài lâu hơn so với vụ "Wannacry."

Công ty cung cấp dịch vụ chống virus và an ninh mạng đa quốc gia Kaspersky Lab của Nga cho biết các vụ tấn công mã độc đòi tiền chuộc mới "đang có xu hướng gia tăng" và thủ phạm gây ra vụ tấn công mạng toàn cầu mới nhất này không phải là biến thể của ransomware Petya như các thông tin trước đó.

Kết quả nghiên cứu của các chuyên gia thuộc Kaspersky Lab cho thấy mã độc đòi tiền chuộc trong vụ tấn công mạng mới đây khác biệt đáng kể so với tất cả các phiên bản mã độc Petya - thủ phạm tấn công hệ thống máy tính toàn cầu năm 2016 - được biết đến trước đó.

Các chuyên gia khẳng định đây không phải là biến thể của ransomware Petya, mà là một ransomware mới chưa từng xuất hiện. Kaspersky Lab đặt tên cho ransomware mới này là "NotPetya" hay "ExPetr."

Theo số liệu từ các hệ thống giám sát của Kasperksy Lab, đã có khoảng 2.000 cuộc tấn công liên quan đến ramsomware mới này tính đến thời điểm hiện tại. Các tổ chức bị ảnh hưởng nhiều nhất là ở Nga và Ukraine.

Ngoài ra, Kaspersky Lab cũng ghi nhận các cuộc tấn công khác ở Ba Lan, Italy, Anh, Đức, Pháp, Mỹ và nhiều quốc gia khác.

Cùng ngày 30/6, Cơ quan An ninh quốc gia Ukraine (SBU) thông báo đã thu giữ một số thiết bị mà họ cho là thuộc về các đặc vụ Nga khi điều tra thủ phạm tiến hành các vụ tấn công mạng trên phạm vi toàn cầu vừa qua. Nga đã bác bỏ mọi cáo buộc liên quan./.

          Theater um Homo-Ehe: inszenierte Nichtigkeit oder Ablenkungsmanöver?   
Nun ist sie also beschlossene Sache: die "Homo-Ehe", oder "Ehe für alle". Der Freudentaumel im links-grünen ist enorm, heißt es doch, dass wir dem Stadium einer supra-offenen Gesellschaft wieder ein paar Schritte näher gekommen sind. "Ein buntes Ja für die Liebe" tönt die Klatschkanone gmx eifrig; auch hier wird der Beschluss wie ein lang umkämpfter Sieg gefeiert. Was zum Teufel aber soll dieses Theater? Haben wir nicht einen Berg anderer Probleme? Ich habe nichts gegen Homosexuelle und auch nicht gegen die Liebe. Es mutet jedoch absurd, beinahe pervers an, dass man angesichts einer inzwischen allgegenwärtigen Terrorgefahr, einem maroden Bildungssystem, einer hoffnungslos überforderten Polizei, no go areas, drohender Altersarmut, der Islamisierung und Entstehung von Parallelgesellschaften, der gestiegenen Kinderarmut, der EU-Krise, des wirtschaftlichen Bedeutungsverlustes und vielem mehr, ein derartiges Nischenthema zur einem Politikum von existenzieller Tragweite aufbläht. Wieviele Menschen in diesem Land werden davon überhaupt betroffen sein? Und wen interessiert es überhaupt? Der Fall Homo-Ehe ist ein exzellentes Exempel dafür, wie perfekt die Meinungsmache funktioniert. Kaum einen hat das Thema je gekratzt, aber innerhalb weniger Tage/Wochen ist es in aller Munde. Selbst ich habe heute Vormittag mit einer gewissen Spannung der mdr-Berichterstattung zu den Abstimmungsergebnissen gelauscht. "Wow" hab ich gedacht und mich gefühlt, als hätte ich nach drei Tagen Dauerwerbesendung endlich das neue Küchen-Multi-Tool bestellt. Wovon soll hier abgelenkt werden? Vom Durchwinken des Maas´schen Zensurgesetzes? Oder welch andere Unsäglichkeit wird uns bald wieder als diktatorisch anheimelndes Schmakerl vorgetragen? Worum geht es hierbei? Soweit ich weiß, waren homoseuelle Pärchen den "Normalos" in so gut wie allem gleichgestellt. Unterschiede liegen in diesem Fall ja wohl eindeutig in der Natur der Sache.

          Open Air Kabarett in Lengenfeld unterm Stein am Samstag, den 19.08. 2017 um 20.00 Uhr im Schwimmbad   
Open Air Kabarett in Lengenfeld unterm Stein am Samstag, den 19.08. 2017 um 20.00 Uhr im Schwimmbad "Die BarHocker- Sahnestücke aus 17 Jahren Kabarett" „Die BarHocker“- Was zunächst nach einer langweiligen Möbel-Werbung klingt, erweist sich bei näherer Betrachtung als ein wortspielgewaltiges Kabarett aus dem erzgebirgischen Oelsnitz. Das Duo Sascha Wildenhain und Kay Haberkorn („das größte Solo-Kabarett der Welt“) steht seit dem Jahre 2000 gemeinsam auf den hiesigen, regionalen, weltbedeutenden Kleinkunstbühnen dieses Planeten und begeistert seither sein Publikum mit selbsterdachten Texten und/oder eigens fürs Publikum erdichteten, persönlich gezupften Gitarrensongs. Das dabei ein gewisser Selbsterkennungswert im Vordergrund steht, ist für die beiden Protagonisten ebenso selbstverständlich, wie auch hie und da politische Themen auf`s Korn zu nehmen. Vornehmlich beackern die passionierten Hobbyspötter aber das Feld „alltäglicher Unzulänglichkeiten im zwischenmenschlichen Miteinander...“. Dass dabei manchmal dem einen oder anderen das Lachen im Halse steckenbleibt, ist gewollt und Programm! Jedoch sind sie sich auch nicht zu schade, sich selbst dabei gehörig auf die Schippen ihrer dünnen Ärmchen zu nehmen. Als waschechte Erzgebirger frönen Haberkorn und Wildenhain zwar auch ihrer Mundart, sprechen aber ebenso Fremddialekte wie z.B. Hochdeutsch. Ihre Bühnenshow lebt dabei vor allem durch permanent wechselnde Rollen und stets neue, eigens kreierte Figuren, wie „Ilse & Lieselotte“, deren garstige Gatten „Siegfried & Fritz“ oder die ehemaligen Sowjetbürger „Sascha & Sergeij“. Auch ohne das Live-Interview „Der interessante Mensch“ mit wechselnden Protagonisten wird das Duo selten noch von der Bühne gelassen… Im Sinne der Worte von Georg Christoph Lichtenberg - „Sagt, gibt es ein Land außer Deutschland, in dem man die Nase eher rümpfen lernt statt putzen?“ werden natürlich auch Publikanten/-Innen einbezogen. Doch keine Angst! Außer mit...
          Worte zum Sonntag: "Sturm, Hagel, Blitz und Donner"   
Die Schwüle des Tages hängt in der Luft. Es ist schweißtreibend warm. Von der Terrasse aus kann ich das Auftürmen der Wolken beobachten. Schwarz naht eine Gewitterfront. Fernes Grollen und Donnern. Blitze zucken.   Der Himmel sieht aus, als wolle die Welt untergehen. Künstler haben die letzten Momente der Menschheitsgeschichte mit dunklen Farben gemalt. Sturm, Hagel, Blitz und Donner. Die Bibel beschreibt den Weltuntergang mit finsteren Visionen. „Ihr werdet hören von Kriegen und Kriegsgeschrei; seht zu und erschreckt nicht. Denn das muss so geschehen; aber es ist noch nicht das Ende da. Denn es wird sich ein Volk gegen das andere erheben und ein Königreich gegen das andere; und es werden Hungersnöte sein und Erdbeben.“ (Matthäus 24,7). Doch diese Bilder wollen nicht Ängste verbreiten und einschüchtern. Gerade in schwierigen Zeiten war es für viele ein Wort der Hoffnung, wenn es in der Bibel heißt: „Denn wie der Blitz ausgeht vom Osten und leuchtet bis zum Westen, so wird auch das Kommen des Menschensohns sein.“ (Matthäus 24,27). Diese Welt wird ein Ende haben. Doch dieses Ende soll ein Anfang werden. Wie der Donner zum Blitz gehört und der Blitz zum Gewitter, so sicher ist es, dass Jesus sichtbar wiederkommt und alles neu machen wird. Das soll uns heute Lebensmut geben: „Alle Herren dieser Welt gehen, aber unser Herr, der kommt.“ (G.  Heinemann) Gesegnete Zeit.
          Hohe Geldforderungen gegen LKW Hersteller aufgrund von Preisabsprachen!   
Im vergangenen Jahr sind fünf namhafte LKW Hersteller aufgeflogen. Die EU-Kommission warf ihnen geheime Preisabsprachen vor und verhängte hohe Geldbußen. Nun haben sich mehrere Logistik-Unternehmen zusammengeschlossen und fordern ihrerseits Schadenersatz in Gesamthöhe von rund 100 Millionen Euro. Auch der Name VW taucht wieder in diesem Skandal auf. Es sind 200 Spediteure aus dem Mittelstand, die sich nun zusammengetan haben, um ihren Anspruch auf Schadenersatz Gewicht zu verleihen. Die Klagen richten sich gegen die Hersteller, die im Sommer vergangenen Jahres von der EU-Kommission teilweise zu Geldbußen verurteilt wurden, nachdem der LKW-Bauer MAN die illegalen Preisabsprachen aufflogen ließ. Mindestens fünf namhafte Markennamen sind dabei in den Abspracheskandal verwickelt ...

          Verletzte bei Verkehrsunfällen und 34-jährige VW-Fahrerin unter Drogen   
Symbolbild Bei Verkehrsunfällen verletzt Weida: Am Donnerstag (29.06.2017), gegen 10:40 Uhr befuhr eine 71- jährige Honda Fahrerin den Parkplatz eines Verbrauchermarktes in der Geraer Straße. Auf der Suche nach einer freien Parkfläche übersah sie einen 85- jährigen Fußgänger und fuhr ihn von hinten an. Der Mann kam zu Fall und wurde verletzt.   Greiz: Am Donnerstag (29.06.2017), gegen 16:45 Uhr befuhr eine 19- jährige Peugeot Fahrerin die B92 in Richtung Greiz. In einer Rechtskurve am Gommlaer Berg verlor sie die Kontrolle über ihr Fahrzeug und geriet in den Gegenverkehr. Gleichzeitig befuhr eine 38-jährige Skoda Fahrerin die Gegenrichtung. Beide Pkw kollidierten miteinander. Durch den Unfall wurden beide Fahrzeugführerinnen verletzt, an den Kfz entstand Sachschaden. Die Unfallstelle musste gereinigt werden.   Pkw unter Einfluss von Betäubungsmitteln und ohne Fahrerlaubnis geführt Weida: Am Donnerstag (29.06.2017), gegen 15:30 Uhr kontrollierten Polizeibeamte die 34-jährige Fahrerin eines Pkw VW, die gerade auf die Gabelsberger Straße auffahren wollte. Grund der Kontrolle waren dabei die entstempelten Kennzeichentafeln am Fahrzeug. Während der Überprüfung stellte sich heraus, dass die Fahrzeugführerin keine Fahrerlaubnis besitzt, unter Einfluss von Betäubungsmitteln stand, (der Test verlief auf Amphetamine/Methamphetamine positiv), sowie das Kfz nicht zugelassen war. Die Weiterfahrt wurde untersagt, eine Blutentnahme veranlasst und entsprechende Ermittlungsverfahren eingeleitet.
          1. FC Greiz will Neuanfang in der Kreisoberliga   
Szene aus der Begegnung des 1. FC Greiz mit dem FC Motor Zeulenroda am 15. April auf dem Tempelwald. Das Derby wird es in der kommenden Saison nicht geben: Zeulenroda bleibt in der Landesklasse, während Greiz in der Kreisoberliga spielt. Der 1. FC Greiz spielt in der kommenden Saison in der Kreisoberliga. Ein "Geschenk" des Thüringer Fußball-Verbandes (TFV) zum Verbleib in der Landesklasse lehnen die Greizer ab. Sportlich hätte der Traditionsverein den Klassenerhalt ja geschafft, aber durch einen umstrittenen Punktabzug wegen zu wenig Schiedsrichtern aus Greiz erfolgte der Zwangsabstieg in die Kreisoberliga. Durch den unerwarteten Rückzug von Rositz aus der Landesklasse bot der TVF den Tempelwäldlern an, nun doch noch in dieser verbleiben können. Doch der Verein hat sich am Mittwochabend dagegen entschieden. „Der Punkteklau des TFV in Zusammenhang mit der Abstiegsregelung hat sehr viel Missstimmung bei uns verbreitet. Dieses 'Geschenk', was uns jetzt offeriert wurde, können und wollen wir nicht annehmen. Wir lassen uns nicht kaufen. Da spielen sicher viele emotionale Dinge rein, die mit hochkochen“, so der Vereinspräsident Frank Brettfeld am Donnerstag. „Wir wünschen uns ein Nachdenken beim Verband. Über den Eingriff in den Abstiegskampf mit dem Punkteklau sollte man einmal in Erfurt nachdenken. Was spricht gegen eine feste Anzahl an Absteigern und eine Verteilung der Aufsteiger nach regionalen Gesichtspunkten?“, richtet Brettfeld seinen Appell an den Thüringer Fußball-Verband. Ein weiterer Grund für die Entscheidung gegen die Landesklasse war die Kürze der Frist: „Innerhalb der kurzen Zeit war eine Teambildung für die Landesklasse, die in unseren Gedanken keine Rolle mehr gespielt hat, einfach nicht zu pushen. Wir haben gestern den ganzen Tag versucht in Erfurt jemanden zu erreichen, um eine längere Frist zu haben. Das war leider unmöglich", so der Vereinschef. Geplant sei jetzt ein Neuanfang mit jungen Leuten, die aus dem A-Junioren-Bereich nachrücken: "Sicher braucht dies für die Entwicklung im Männerbereich noch etwas Zeit. Aber wir werden diesen Weg gehen. Es ist viel Frust bei der Sache dabei. Sportlich wollen wir uns natürlich nicht freiwillig in niedrigere Klassen...

          Manfred Morgners Vogtlandorangen   
„Wollt ihr wissen, wo die Apfelsinen wachsen, die euch zu Weihnachten der Weihnachtsmann bringt? Bei mir nämlich“, überraschte Manfred Morgner die Kinder und Erzieherinnen der evangelischen Kindertagesstätte „Arche Noah“ Bernsgrün, die das ihm nicht glaubten. Große staunende Augen bei den Mädchen und Jungen, als sie dann den Orangenbaum in Morgners Garten besichtigten. „Das sind meine Vogtlandorangen. 13 reife habe ich schon abgenommen, 38 grüne und viele Blüten sind noch dran“, berichtet Morgner stolz. Die Früchte haben einen Durchmesser von acht Zentimeter und sind für manche Äste schon zu schwer, so dass sie brechen. Der über 10 Jahre alte Baum trägt bereits das fünfte Jahr. Gekauft hat ihn der passionierte Hobbygärtner als „ausrangierter, für den Abfall bestimmter Baum ohne Krone“. Doch unter Morgners grünen Daumen gedieh und wuchs er prächtig. Der Baum überwintert im frostfreien Raum, und im Sommer hat er einen sonnigen, warmen Platz im Freien. Neben den Orangenbaum hat der mit Lust und Liebe zu „außergewöhnlichen“ Pflanzen agierende Morgner natürlich noch andere Raritäten: winterharte Palmen, Baumpfingstrose, Wunderbaum, Bananenstaude, Olivenbaum, Blattlimette, Zitronenbaum, gelbe Wachsblume, Tulpenbaum, Schönmalve, gelbe Wildtomaten, Yucca-Palmen, die jetzt schon eine beachtliche Größe von zwei Metern erreicht haben und weiter wachsen. Und natürlich gehört zu seinen Exoten auch die Blaue Bergfeige, mit der er im vergangenen Jahr bei der Gartenolympiade punkten konnte und einen Ableger schon wieder selbst gezogen mit einer Feige dran im Kübel stehen hat.
          "Ich höre was, was Du nicht hörst!" - Experten beraten zum Thema Tinnitus   
Mit ihren informativen Vorträgen trafen die Referenten der Deutschen Tinnitus-Liga e.V. und die Vertreter der regionalen Selbsthilfegruppe Ostthüringen die Anwesenden lösungsorientiert mitten in ihre persönliche Situation. Symptom? Fehlfunktion?? Oder doch eine Krankheit??? Rätsel Tinnitus „Captain Kirk“ William Shatner kann es sagen, Sänger Bono Vox von U2 und Eric Clapton auch. „Ich höre was, was Du nicht hörst: Tinnitus!“ Mit bundesweit über drei Millionen Betroffenen sind Ohrgeräusche, die sonst niemand hört, schon fast eine Volkskrankheit. Menschen, die Tinnitus haben, leiden häufig sehr unter ihren Ohrgeräuschen, denn oftmals ist das Brummen, Rauschen, Piepsen oder Kreischen mit Begleiterscheinungen wie Schlaf- und Konzentrationsstörungen verbunden. Hilfe gegen den ungebetenen Gast im Ohr und die immense psychische Belastung verspricht ein wachsendes Angebot an Therapiemethoden, Arznei- und Hilfsmitteln, deren Wirksamkeit meist unbewiesen ist. Informationen und Hilfestellung im Umgang mit dem quälenden Ohrgeräusch erwarteten auch über 50 Teilnehmer aus Zwickau, Westsachsen und Ostthüringen, die sich auch den Weg in den Gemeindesaal der Zwickauer Pauluskirche gemacht hatten. Die Deutsche Tinnitus-Liga e.V. hatte drei hochkarätige Referenten aufgeboten, die sich nach ihren Vorträgen den Fragen der Anwesenden stellten. Draußen im Foyer standen Harry Apitz und Peter Vucic von der auch für Westsachsen zuständigen Tinnitus-Selbsthilfegruppe Ostthüringen für persönliche Gespräche zur Verfügung, informierten über Gruppenaktivitäten und versorgten die Hilfesuchenden mit Informationsmaterial . Vom Betroffenen zum mündigen Patienten Die Veranstaltung begann mit den praktischen Erfahrungen eines selbst hochgradig Betroffenenen: Unter dem Titel „Tinnitus, Schwerhörigkeit und Lärmbelastung am Arbeitsplatz“ schlug Volker Albert, Präsident der Deutschen Tinnitus-Liga e. V., gleich die Brücke zur Alltagssituation Hörgeschädigter, und brachte die vielfältigen Folgen von Kommunikationsstörungen für Betroffene und ihr Umfeld mit einem Zitat des Philosophen Immanuel Kant auf den Punkt: „Nicht sehen trennt von Dingen, nicht hören trennt von Menschen.“ Zustimmendes Nicken...
          Die Fuller-Story - heißer und kalter Krieg in Blankenhain   
Ltn. Leonard B. Fuller Der Absturz über Blankenhain - Ein Blick hinter den Eisernen Vorhang Unter dem Motto "Versöhnung über den Gräbern - Arbeit für den Frieden" soll an den US-Piloten Ltn. Leonard B. Fuller erinnert werden, der am 7. Juli 1944 in Blankenhain sein Leben verlor. Das Flugzeug des Piloten der US Air Force, wurde im Luftkampf über Naumburg von der deutschen Flak getroffen. Seine Mustang P-51 D stürzte in einem Waldstück hinter Blankenhain ab und zerschellte. Obwohl er noch mit dem Fallschirm absprang, überlebte er es nicht. Ltn. Leonard B. Fuller wurde auf dem Alten Friedhof in Blankenhain begraben. Eine Familie aus Blankenhain hatte jahrelang sein Grab gepflegt. Sie hatte selbst ihre Söhne im Krieg verloren. Nach einem langen Hickhack im "Kalten Krieg" und diplomatischem Tauziehen, gespickt mit Misstrauen der Siegermächte aus Ost und West, konnten die Eltern das Grab Ende der 1940er-Jahre endlich in Thüringen besuchen. Von Frankfurt a. M. aus starteten die Amerikaner ihre aufregende Reise durch die sowjetische Besatzungszone mit Polizei-Eskorten. Sie lernte die grabpflegende Familie kennen. Und sie trauerten gemeinsam um verlorenen Söhne. Die Fullers waren von der Begegnung und ihrer Reise so gerührt, dass sie nach ihrer Rückkehr in die USA über 300 Vorträge darüber hielten. 1950 hatten sie dann endlich die Möglichkeit ihren Sohn nach seiner Exhumierung in seinen Heimatort Linden / NY (USA) zu überführen. Am 9. Juli wird die Amerikanerin Donna Bonning, die nach der Familie forschte und unzähliges Material über den Piloten fand - auf dem Alten Friedhof in Blankenhain eine Gedenktafel einweihen. Gleichzeitig eröffnen der Heimatforscher Bernd Schmidt aus Weimar und der Arbeitskreis Stadtgeschichte Blankenhain e.V. eine Ausstellung zur "Fuller-Story". Damit wollen sie auf die beinah vergessene Geschichte aufmerksam machen. Die Ausstellung mit 15 Schaustafeln zeigt...

          Geraer Polizeimeldungen vom 29. Juni   
Symbolbild Kollision mit Kalb Gera: Mit einem Jungbulle kollidierte am Donnerstag (29.06.2017), gegen 03:00 Uhr ein Pkw. Der 55-jährige Skodafahrer befuhr die Straße zwischen Wacholderbaum und Negis als plötzlich ein Rindvieh auf der Straße stand. Der Mann stoppte seinen Pkw. In der Folge lief das Tier auf das Fahrzeug zu und stieß gegen den Pkw. Das Tier blieb unverletzt. Der Tierhalter war vor Ort und kümmerte sich um die Sicherung des Tieres. Dumm gelaufen Gera: Am Mittwoch (28.06.2017), gegen 23:50 Uhr kontrollierten Polizeibeamte 2 Männer (litauisch, 34 und 28 Jahre), da diese zuvor zivile Polizeibeamte nach Betäubungsmitteln fragten. Bei der Durchsuchung der Männer wurde eine Geldbörse mit diversen Karten aufgefunden, welche nicht dem Beschuldigten gehörten, sowie in der Folge eine Jacke, welche gemeinsam mit dem Portmonee als gestohlen gemeldet war. Die Dinge wurden sichergestellt und entsprechende Anzeigen gefertigt. Pkw Scheibe eingeschlagen Gera: Indem Unbekannte in der Zeit von Dienstag (27.06.2017), gegen 07:00 Uhr und Mittwoch (28.06.2017), gegen 17:30 Uhr eine hintere Seitenscheibe eines Pkw Ford einschlugen, verschafften sich der oder die Täter Zugang zum Pkw-Innenraum und entwendeten aus diesem einen Briefumschlag mit persönlichen Unterlagen. Die Ermittlungen laufen. Unter Drogen und ohne Fahrerlaubnis Gera: Am Mittwoch (28.06.2017), gegen 15:15 Uhr kontrollierten Polizeibeamte der Einsatzunterstützung in der Tinzer Straße einen Fiat. Während der Kontrolle stellt sich heraus dass der 24-jährige Fahrzeugführer unter dem Einfluss von Betäubungsmitteln stand und nicht im Besitz einer erforderlichen Fahrerlaubnis ist. Es folgte eine Blutentnahme und entsprechende Anzeigen wurden erstattet.
          Schwerer Unfall auf der B 93 und weitere Polizeimeldungen vom 29. Juni für das Altenburger Land   
Symbolbild Unfall mit drei Schwerverletzten B93: Drei Personen, darunter ein einjähriges Kind wurden Mittwochnachmittag (28.06.2017) bei einem Verkehrsunfall im Altenburger Land schwer verletzt. Ein 44-jähriger VW- Fahrer geriet auf der Bundesstraße 93 zwischen Zehma und Lehndorf aus bisher ungeklärter Ursache auf die Gegenfahrbahn und kollidierte hier mit einem Seat. Sowohl die beiden Insassen des entgegenkommenden Pkw, ein 37-jähriger Mann und ein einjähriges Kind, als auch der Unfallverursacher wurden bei dem Zusammenstoß schwer verletzt und ins Krankenhaus gebracht.

          Polizei warnt vor Betrugsmasche   
Unbekannte rufen an und geben sich als Polizeibeamte aus. Symbolbild Die Landespolizeiinspektion Gera warnt vor einer Betrugsmasche. Demnach wurde in den vergangenen ein 51-jähriger Mann durch einen Herrn Wolfgang Grimm angerufen. Der Anrufer gab sich als vermeintlicher Polizeibeamter aus und hatte den 51-Jährigen aufgefordert, vom Konto Geld abzuheben. Ein konkreter Geldbetrag wurde hierbei nicht genannt, jedoch übte der Anrufer immensen Druck aus. Es folgten weitere Anrufe durch eine Frau Ines Meyer. Glücklicherweise ging der Mann nicht auf die Forderung des angeblichen Polizeibeamten ein, so dass kein finanzieller Schaden entstand. Die Polizei warnt in diesem Zusammenhang vor dieser Art dubioser Anrufe: "Sollten Sie einen derartigen Anruf erhalten, gehen Sie nicht auf die Forderungen ein. Überweisen sie kein Geld oder geben es nicht an Ihnen Unbekannte persönlich heraus. Informieren Sie Ihre Polizei. Sollten Sie bereits Opfer eines solchen Betruges oder Betrugsversuches geworden sein, so setzen Sie sich bitte mit der örtlichen Polizeidienststelle ins Benehmen."
          Kommentar zu Hochrangiges Regierungsmitglied: “Spätestens im November geht es rund” von ich bin   
Erkenntnis und Verständnis eignet sich jeder selber an. Und das ist ein Prozess der über Jahre dauert, und es ändert sich auch ständig wenn wieder neue Informationen dazukommen (Die Wahrheit, oder was ihr damit bezeichnet, aus den vielen Artikeln im Internet herauszufiltern, wo das ganze so gemischt ist mit Halbwahrheiten und Desinformationen, tja, schwierig für die meisten und zeitaufwändig). Die Programmierung durch Schule, Erziehung, Fernsehen, Werbung usw. aus dem eigenen Energiesystem zu löschen muss jeder selber wollen. Es gibt natürlich viele Möglichkeiten dazu wie man es erreichen kann. So wie ich es geschrieben habe hat es sicher die richtige Kraft. Wer soweit ist, versteht es. Warum soll ich Erklärungen hier schreiben, hatte ich schon gemacht, ist halt zu oft nicht veröffentlicht worden durch die Bloginhaberin. Als aufgerichtete Seele mit den gebeugten zu kommunizieren - was meint ihr? Gedanken und Worte schafften die 3D-Realität - also damit aufpassen - Verstanden? Wer soweit ist findet seine Antworten.
          Russische Klänge   
Theater&Philharmonie Thüringen
Das Philharmonische Orchester Altenburg-Gera im Konzertsaal der Bühnen der Stadt Gera unter Leitung seines Generalmusikdirektors Laurent Wagner Im 1. Philharmonischen Konzert der neuen Spielzeit 2017/18 am 6. und 7. September um 19.30 Uhr im Konzertsaal der Bühnen der Stadt Gera schlägt das Philharmonische Orchester Altenburg-Gera unter der musikalischen Leitung von Generalmusikdirektor Laurent Wagner russische Klänge an. Die Oktoberrevolution 1917 brachte auch für die Kultur weitreichende Veränderungen mit sich. In der Sowjetunion tätige Künstler wurden in den folgenden Jahrzehnten zensiert, verfolgt, mussten fliehen, leisteten Widerstand oder passten sich den staatlichen Vorgaben an. Auch 100 Jahre später sind die Auswirkungen dieser Ereignisse unverkennbar, in der Rückschau auf Leben und Werk einer großen Komponistengeneration – und in der Rezeption im Westen. Das 1. Philharmonische Konzert stellt dabei beide Seiten gegenüber: die der Opfer und die der (scheinbaren) Täter. Chrennikov, Generalsekretär des Komponistenverbandes der Sowjetunion, setzte die Vorgaben des Machtapparats um. Zugleich engagierte er sich mutig gegen Antisemitismus und schützte verfolgte Komponisten. Mit der deutschen Erstaufführung seines 2. Klavierkonzerts wird der hierzulande eher unbekannte Komponist vorgestellt. Dennoch galt er als klarer Gegner der angeblich formalistischen Musik von Komponisten wie Chatschaturjan und Schostakowitsch, die jedoch wohl v. a. deswegen verfemt waren, weil sie zur musikalischen Elite des Landes gehörten. Mit seinen großen lyrischen Bögen und der inniglichen Melodie verzaubert das Adagio aus dem berühmten Ballett Spartacus von Chatschaturjan seit jeher seine Zuhörer. Schostakowitschs 13. Sinfonie Babi Jar entstand in der Tauwetterperiode nach Stalins Tod. In der Schlucht Babi Jar erschoss 1941 ein SS-Kommando 34000 Juden. Das Mitfühlen mit den Opfern wird verknüpft mit der Anklage gegen russische Antisemiten. Die Uraufführung 1962 wurde zum tönenden Appell für ein friedliches Miteinander. Jascha Nemtsov, Solist des Klavierkonzerts, ist Professor für Geschichte der jüdischen Musik an der...

          Gera erwartet am 1. Juli mehrere Demos und ein großes Polizeiaufgebot   
Am 1. Juli ist in Gera mit einem größeren Polizeiaufgebot zu rechnen. Symbolbild Auf Grund mehrerer angemeldeter Versammlungen am Samstag, den 1.

          Comment on A postcard from the past: Shaw House and Lido by N Narayanan   
Thanks again Mr Jerome Lim, for this latest post on Orchard Road. Like the proverbial bad penny, here I turn up again (please feel free not to put up my comments if for any reason they are unwelcome, but believe me they are made purely as incidental to your commentary) 'A nation of shopkeepers' is reportedly a not-too-complimentary phrase referring to England going back to 1794 (Wikipedia). Much in the same vein, one could say we Singaporeans could be dubbed 'a nation of shoppers'. 'Orchard Road' is apparently the 'flavour of the moment' with pleas being made 'to restore the vibrancy of the area', mainly by those whose memories &/or experiences go back to more recent times. True, their attitudes may be reflected in the phrase 'Orchard Road, Singapore: Asia's Most Famous Shopping Street ..." as one description goes. But time was when it was less 'glitzy' and a more sedate and respectable upper-middle-class residential area, as would be fitting for its proximity to the 'Governor's House' - in colonial times - and 'The Istana - President's Residence' since Independence. In sharp contrast, Orchard Road has today earned the distinction of being 'Every Shopper's Paradise', with much of the credit being accorded to those who have developed the area. While giving them their due, I personally find it sad that in this context, all-forgotten now is my then-boss the late Mr Moshe J Nassim, founder of the Auctioneers & Estate Agents firm 'Nassim & Co Ltd'. Circa 1950 he persuaded the Hongkong Bank to buy the land where MacDonald House now stands, confidently assuring them 'Orchard Road will be the place of future Singapore'.He was eminently qualified in his observations, as he had been resident in the area from pre-WWII years. Surely Mr Nassim needs to be remembered for his foresight. In property matters, he was largely responsble in opening up the then undeveloped ulu areas of Frankel Estate, Loyang and Sarimbun. Returning to 'Orchard Road, quite by accident, I just stumbled upon a video blog titled 'Singapore in 1956' - MichaelRogge. 'Published on Jun 19, 2013 -- Singapore as a world port more than half a century ago. I see bankers walking around in white tropical suits as I did myself at the time in Hong Kong...' (Source/Link: ) The clear views of the Orchard Road/Dhoby Ghaut corner are stunning, as too Union Building (now Tung Centre) at Collyer Quay, and these, along with others in the clip, will surely evoke nostalgic memories in those who were here in Singapore more than six decades back. For a more recent appreciative view, this post ( sums up:- ''Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a seasoned shopper, Orchard Road, a 2.2km shopping belt, is the place for retail therapy. 'Who'd have thought that over 150 years ago, Orchard Road was just a small lane lined with fruit orchards, nutmeg plantations and pepper farms. A look back By the 1850s, these humble origins had changed. People moved in, along with outdoor hawker centres, wet markets, cemeteries, temples, and even an open-air laundry basin. It was only in 1903 that Orchard Road’s shops sprung up, with Singapore's first supermarket, where The Centrepoint now stands. The first department store was opened by local merchant C.K Tang in 1958 on a plot of land facing a cemetery. When it was demolished in 1982, it was replaced by the landmark Tang Plaza, which houses a local department store and hotel. In the 1970s, cinemas, a bowling alley and ever larger malls followed, and Orchard Road’s reputation as an entertainment hub grew. Spoilt for choice Today, Orchard Road is flanked by iconic shopping malls, restaurants and hotels, choc-a-bloc with retail, dining and entertainment choice for every taste and budget. Designer threads, fast fashion, upscale restaurants, ethnic wares, art galleries and relaxed hangouts – you name it, Orchard Road has it. Here’s a tip: while the almond and jambu trees are no more, huge angsana trees lining the large pedestrian mall give ample shade from the blazing sun – making this still a nice place to stroll'''' Thanks for the memories!
          Steffen Schroeder : Was alles in einem Menschen sein kann   
Portraitbild Begegnung mit einem Mörder 2013 stehen sich Steffen Schroeder und Micha im Gefängnis Berlin-Tegel zum ersten Mal gegenüber. Ein Gespräch über ihre schwierige Jugend bringt sie einander näher, bei allen Unterschieden: Schroeder wurde Schauspieler, Micha rutschte ins rechte Milieu ab, brachte einen Menschen um. Es beginnt eine besondere Beziehung: Schroeder, bekannt als Kommissar Kowalski in «SOKO Leipzig», der sich auch im Weißen Ring für Kriminalitätsopfer engagiert, wird Vollzugshelfer des lebenslänglich Verurteilten. Er lernt den Gefängnisalltag kennen, erfährt von Rangordnungen, Drogen, Ausbruchsversuchen; über die Jahre dringt er tief in Michas Geschichte ein, erfährt immer wieder Neues, Überraschendes. Für Micha wird er wichtiger und wichtiger, er begleitet ihn bei Freigängen, ist ihm Auge und Ohr für die Welt. Bald sieht Schroeder sich selbst und sein Leben in neuem Licht: Was unterscheidet ihn eigentlich von Micha? Und welche Entscheidungen und Wendepunkte führen überhaupt dazu, dass ein Leben gelingt oder scheitert? Steffen Schroeder schreibt mit viel Gespür für das Menschliche über eine außergewöhnliche Begegnung und stellt dabei existenzielle Fragen nach Schuld, Schicksal und der Verantwortung dem eigenen Leben gegenüber. Schroeders Buch gibt wichtige Auskünfte über den Alltag in deutschen Gefängnissen, über Risiken und Chancen für Langzeitinhaftierte sowie darüber, welche Resozialisierungsmöglichkeiten und -perspektiven sich für Menschen wie Micha mit rechtsextremer und schwerstkrimineller Vergangenheit ergeben. Der Fernsehkommissar und der Mörder – ein starkes, glänzend erzähltes Buch. Steffen Schroeder Steffen Schroeder wurde 1974 in München geboren. Nach seiner Schauspielausbildung war er zunächst Ensemblemitglied am Wiener Burgtheater, dann beim Berliner Ensemble. Er wirkte in Fernsehserien wie «Der Kriminalist», «Bella Block» und «Tatort» sowie in Kinofilmen wie «Der Rote Baron» oder «Keinohrhasen» mit. In der erfolgreichen ZDF-Serie «SOKO...
          Auge in Auge : Porträtfotografie von Michael Lebek   
Angeregt durch die gute Resonanz zu Michael Lebeks Ausstellungen 2016/17: „Der entscheidende Moment“ im Museum Nitschareuth, der Vogtlandhalle Greiz, im Kreiskrankenhaus Greiz und der Ausstellung: „Musikerporträt“ im Gärtnerhaus Mylau - waren diese der Auslöser, begonnene Projekte weiter zu führen und die Fotografie noch intensiver zu betreiben. Dazu gehören die Themen: Musiker live im Konzert, alpine Landschaften und deren Alpenpflanzen oberhalb der Baumgrenze, die Dokumentationen zur Restaurierung alter Maschinen und Fahrzeuge in der Werkstatt von Holger Völkel, Landschaften, Bauten u.a. Ein neues Fotoprojekt ist während der Reise durch West-Kuba im November 2016 entstanden. Auge in Auge fotografierte Michael Lebek die Gesichter der Kubanerinnen und Kubaner in den Straßen von Santa Clara, Havanna, Cienfuegos und Trinidad. Auch in den Dörfern wie im Vinales Tal fand er beeindruckende Menschen. Es entstanden über 50 Porträtfotografien. 30 der besonders ausdrucksstärksten Exponate, werden in dieser Ausstellung gezeigt. Wie es auf Kuba zu dieser Fotografie kam und wie es gelang Los Cubanos vor die Kamera zu bringen, bleibt bis zur Vernissage am: 03. August 2017 um 17 Uhr ein Geheimnis. Musikalisch wird die Vernissage von dem Musiker Ralf Dietsch begleitet. Sommerabend, kubanische Eindrücke, ein begnadeter Musiker, das lädt ein zu mehr. Ab 18 Uhr wird in der Cafe-Bar „CityLife“, Kirchplatz 6 eingeladen zu einer karibischen After-Work-Party. Ralf Dietsch musiziert bei Cocktails und karibischen Flair. Und Salsa? Sie sind herzlich eingeladen!

          Kommentar zu Die Pyramiden wurden gegossen | Tierischer Mix Spezial | Die Legenden sind wahr | Höhepunkte der letzten Monate von Psyconomicle   
Das die pyramiden gegossen worden sein sollen, finde ich richtig schwachsinnig! Warum die so eng und unterschiedlich gefugt sind liegt einfach daran das man etwas für die ewigkeit bauen wollte! Deshalb wurden sie erdbeben sicher gebaut das geht allerdings nur wenn die steine alle unterschiedlich gekantet und verwinkelt sind! Durch die rüttel bewegung, die bei einem erdbeben entstehen, werden die steine einfach immer mehr zusammen gedrückt, wodurch die fugen logischerweiße immer enger werden! Das einzige wo evntl. Was gegossen wurde währe wie heutzutage eine bodenplatte gewesen. Diese wäre jedoch in den jahrtausenden auf jedenfall zerbrochen und die pyramide in sich zusammen gefallen! Also schhließt sich daraus das sie sich eine andere art überlegten,sie steht ja schließlich noch!

          Chinanitrogengenerator the bulk of change is zero the capital antecedent   
At present, there are two capital requirements for the acquirement of air purifiers, the aboriginal is the a lot of accepted anti-fog haze, the added is the anew adapted ancestors of formaldehyde as the Nitrogen Generator of abounding aerial amoebic (VOC). Of course, the air bactericide can break the botheration is not alone the two, but these two needs is absolutely the calm market, the a lot of boilerplate air bactericide demand, actuality to these two archetypal needs, for example, to explain why the air The bactericide is an able band-aid for advancement calm air quality.

The aboriginal is fog haze. The online analysis of air purifiers is varied, but it is still not a problem, for those who do not accept to buy air purifiers, it is still difficult to explain to them why air purifiers can actualize one in their home Can bear the brume of the haven. It is harder to explain why the air bactericide is not boring filtered once, and the charge to consistently broadcast the calm air. There is aswell an insurmountable mindset that we charge "fresh" air, and in actuality we charge apple-pie air afterwards boundless air.

Simple to accept that a bactericide can be absent into a aperture abeyant in the air, the aperture inhaled the aforementioned bulk of calm air complete contaminants, alarming out the complete cleanliness of the CADR bulk afterwards algae [1]. As apparent in the bulk below, the average box draws attenuated air from beneath and assault apple-pie air to the top. In the complete test, the CADR is aswell abstinent in a accepted apprehension environment, the connected aperture of the purifier, and connected almanac of the absorption of pollutants in the analysis chamber, and use this ambit to fit the bulk of the ideal archetypal to infer this ablution The agnate CADR value. So the CADR bulk is added absolute and able than the individual adeptness or air volume.

For a anchored room, if the alien altitude do not change, again the allowance will anatomy a activating balance, that is, the acceleration of ablution and abuse bulk is flat, the assemblage time into the arrangement of chapped bulk and acquittal arrangement particles equal, again the calm air The superior does not change, that is, the bulk of change is zero, that is, the sum of the sum of the ante of the two routes of abuse in the aloft 5 approaches is according to the sum of the ante of the three ablution paths.

In the case of astringent haze, the capital antecedent of calm chapped bulk is infiltrated by the outside, and the calm abuse antecedent apparent as No. 4 is altered from room, which is difficult to quantify and is not acceptable for abstract calculation. Nitrogen Generation System it is anon alone here. The activating calm declared aloft becomes the bulk at which the particles penetrate, according to the sum of the ante of sedimentation, bactericide purification, and accustomed acquittal of the three ablution pathways.

Two of the foremost Timing Belt Manufacturers uses of agent units will be in food administration added packaging. For absolutely possibly the a lot of part, agent systems are usually implemented in any operation that will absorb relocating some affair from 1 atom to accession in a ceaseless abiding stream. This agency food managed by agent systems may ambit from some affair as ample as cars in accumulation lines, to an account as ablaze as bare artificial containers and sticker labels. They're additionally active not alone for automatic acceptance about will aswell be apparent on a circadian base in affective walkways in arcade malls.

Conveyor systems are absolutely approved afterwards attributable to the abounding allowances they offer. One of the greatest advantages of agent systems is absolutely the automation of abstracts moving. Therefore beneath artisan handling, consistent in beneath absurdity or added productivity, appreciably beneath basal assurance fears, abbreviation plan expenses. However, this may aswell aftereffect in appreciably beneath chiral roles. The operated manually duties apropos to acrimonious up and alteration however, are in actuality replaced with a claim for added accomplished technicians that are alleged aloft in adjustment to accomplish the complete conveyors, accustomed that the majority of agent systems commonly are not absolutely automated, and in abounding cases some of those which are would charge the accepted administration of workers to authorize assurance added optimum all-embracing performance.

Colored accept straps are the appraisement affairs usually called for a lot of angry styles and angry techniques.

Roku TV devices still banned in Mexico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Ellipses and Splines to Lines and Arcs   

I know there is a lot of posts out there of people trying to convert splines and ellipses in inventor to lines and arc's to be compatible with CNC machines.  There have been solutions as far as using AutoCAD commands to retracing geometry. 


As anyone found a different, possibly within Inventor process for this?  Or something that is what they feel a viable solution? 


We typically start by having views of the part on a drawing file and then export that into a DXF.  If the pieces aren't modeled flat/aka curved surface projecting up the result is typically a spline. 


Retracing over these manually is not an option for us as we have 1,000's of custom ones a year. 


What we are trying to come up with is a work flow:

1.  If it's possible in inventor somehow to clean this up prior to exporting and being able to programmatically follow an existing curved surface if we have to retrace it with lines and arcs,

2.  Is the best solution to post process with auto cad commands, flatten, etc...

3.  Do we combine our process with a 3rd party app, or

4.  Is there a really good command in another more cam software (NX, MasterCam, Rhino, Spaceclaim, etc...)


If we convert items into polylines from splines/ellipses we can't have a trillion points along that polyline.  Saw will not be happy and process inefficiently.


Thoughts?  There something that has been developed in the past few years maybe we are missing?

Is this programmatically possible via the API?


We know we can create a sketch, project the geometry of the spline and start placing lines, arcs but can't find a way to know programmatically if we are following the original geometry close enough.  We also couldn't see that there where any type of control points in and inventor spline object other than the start and end point.

          Ilogic Save As not working   

I created a Do until loop that will run through and make all my parts for me, while reading the parameters for each part from excel. I have the user input the values in the attached pictures before running the rule. My problem is that even though it correctly reads in the parameters from excel, and i've put in message boxes to show me that the parameters are correct throughout the rule, when the part gets to the save as, it only saves out the template. So even though throughout the creation of part 1, the width shows up as 20, when I open the part afterwards, the width is back to being 50. 


Before I had it set up so that instead of having a do until loop it would bring up the save as dialog with the next name on the list and all I had to do was hold down the enter key until all the parts were made. That worked, but I was really hoping to automate it so that I could be working on other things while this ran.


This is the excel it is reading from:

Sub Main()
Dim row As Integer = 3 'the 2nd row in excel is the template information
Dim CellVal As String = "Part"

GoExcel.Open(ExcelFile, SheetName)

Dim path As String = ThisDoc.Path & "\"

Do Until CellVal = ""
    Dim columnLetter As String = "A"
    CellVal = GoExcel.CellValue(columnLetter & row)

Mein Wochenende war tatsächlich ganz schön. Ich bin endlich dazu gekommen, mein Zimmer ein bisschen aufzuräumen und dann habe ich mich noch mit einer Freundin und deren bester Freundin (die ich noch nicht kannte) im Café getroffen. Zack, bumm. Wow! Ich habe nicht gedacht, dass es so jemand Schönes auf der Welt geben kann. Bei ihr hat vom Aussehen her echt alles gestimmt. Und sie schien zudem noch recht nett zu sein. Ich konnte mir zwar kein genaueres Bild von ihrem Charakter machen, aber der 1. Eindruck war sympatisch, wir haben uns gut verstanden und ich hatte das Gefühl, dass sie mich auch ganz gut leiden konnte. *smile*

Für diese 2 1/2 Stunden hatte ich Fabienne tatsächlich vergessen. Und auch jetzt fühle ich mich grade eigentlich ganz gut. Aber ich weiß genau, dass es nicht lange dauert und Fabienne geistert mir wieder im Kopf herum. Es war bis jetzt immer so, warum sollte es diesmal anders sein? Naja, was solls...

Das Wetter heute hat echt ne Schraube locker. Regen, Hagel, Schneeregen, Schnee und Sonnenschein wechseln sich in 15-Minuten-Abständen ab. Eben hat es noch dicke Flocken geschneit, jetzt strahlt mir wieder die Sonne entgegen. Man könnte meinen, es wäre April.

Mit Torben ist übrigens alles wieder in Ordnung. Dass das Mädel mit mir ins Bett steigen würde, hatte er nicht geplant. Sie habe mich wohl süßer gefunden, als erwartet. Und dass er ihr dafür Geld gegeben habe, sei ein Gerücht. Trotz allem habe ich (hoffentlich) klar gestellt, dass keine "Mädchen auf Mission" mehr zum Aufmuntern zu mir geschickt werden. Ich stehe mehr auf echte Gefühle und möchte nicht, dass man mir irgend etwas vorspielt, schon gar nicht aus Mitleid.

Ich setz mich jetzt gleich hin und lerne ein bisschen: Übermorgen schreibe ich Mathe. So ein Scheiß, warum schreibt man die meisten Arbeiten immer so kurz vor den Ferien?

          Verschweigen ist Lügen!   
Ich habe mich schon eine Weile nicht mehr gemeldet. Hatte die letzten 2 Tage und heute 3 Klausuren geschrieben und musste mich aufs Lernen konzentrieren. Eigentlich lerne ich immer nur wenige Tage vor den Arbeiten. Naja...

Außerdem hatte ich viel zu viel Wut in mir, als dass ich hätte vernünftig schreiben können. Nicht wegen Torben. Nein, wegen meinem Dad! Eigentlich müsste ich auch auf meine Mutter sauer sein, aber wie kann man auf jemanden sauer sein, der nicht mehr lebt... Doch sie beide haben mir etwas verschwiegen. Nur wenige Wochen nachdem meine Mutter mich auf die Welt gebracht hatte, ist sie schon wieder schwanger gewesen. Neun Monate später hätte sie ihrer Tochter, meinem Schwesterchen, das Leben schenken sollen. Doch sie hat es nie getan. Als diese auf die Welt kam, lag sie tot in den Händen der Geburtshelferin! Eine Totgeburt! Sie hatte nie eine Chance gehabt, ihren Lebenswillen zu beweisen. Sie hatte nie die Chance gehabt, den ersten Atemzug zu machen, den Klaps auf den Po zu spüren und anzufangen, munter zu schreien! Und ich hatte nie eine Chance, darüber traurig zu sein. Denn meine Eltern haben sich dafür entschieden, mir nie von ihr zu erzählen.

Janina hätte sie heißen sollen. Vermutlich hätte ich, wäre alles gut gegangen, dann jetzt eine Schwester gehabt, mit der ich mich regelmäßig zanken würde, weil ich natürlich Wert darauf läge, dass ich der Ältere von uns beiden bin. Und doch hätte ich auch jemanden gehabt, der mich geknuddelt hätte, vor zwei Monaten. Sie hätte nicht so einen Spruch abgelassen, wie mein Vater, dass Beziehungen eben in die Brüche gehen würden und das Leben nun mal so sei und trotzdem weiterginge. Für meine Schwester ist es nicht weiter gegangen. Für sie hat es noch nicht einmal anfangen können. Und auch wenn ich verstehe, dass man einem Kleinkind soetwas nicht erzählen möchte, hätte mein Vater mir das mittlerweile schon längst sagen können.

Aber nein, das hat er nicht. Und er hätte es bis heute nicht getan, er hätte mich weiter belogen und so getan, als hätte ich nie eine Schwester haben können. Wenn ich nicht zufällig gestern auf sein Tagebuch gestoßen wäre. Ich weiß, dass man die Tagebücher anderer Leute nicht lesen sollte, aber ich wollte auch nur kurz reinschauen und schließlich, dachte ich, ist es ja mein Vater. Nur mal seinen letzten Eintrag lesen, schauen, wie so sein Schreibstil ist, was ihm alles so wichtig ist, dass er es ins Tagebuch schreibt. Was ich nicht wusste, war, dass er nach diesem einen Tag, nachdem meine Schwester tot auf die Welt gekommen ist, nie wieder etwas darin festgehalten hatte. Und so stieß ich auf diesen schrecklichen letzten Eintrag. Schrecklich in zweierlei Hinsicht: Dass er seine Tochter gleich am 1. Tag verlieren musste und dass er meinte, dass sein Sohn dies nicht zu wissen bräuchte.

Als er von der Arbeit heim kam, habe ich ihn angeschrien. Das mache ich nicht oft, aber diesmal habe ich es getan. Richtig laut, richtig wütend. Und richtig gefühlslos. Ich konnte einfach nicht fassen, dass er mir das alles einfach verschwiegen hatte. Ich habe doch ein Recht, zu erfahren, dass ich eine Schwester gehabt hätte! Und ich habe erst aufgehört, als er anfing zu weinen. Das hatte ich nach dem Tod meiner Mutter nicht mehr gesehen. Mein Vater hat richtig geweint. Ich bin dann, ohne noch etwas zu sagen, ins Bett gegangen.

Heute haben wir uns gerade nochmal darüber unterhalten. Diesmal ohne zu schreien. Er hat mir gesagt, wie schwer dieses Erlebnis damals für ihn war und dass es ihm auch schwer gefallen ist, sich dafür zu entscheiden, mir nichts davon zu erzählen. Und ich habe auch nicht so sehr nachgedacht, als ich ihn gestern angeschrien habe. Ich habe ihm auch gesagt, dass es mir leid tut, doch ich war einfach zu wütend! In so einer Situation denkt man nicht nach. Aber darum haben wir ja auch eben nochmal geredet. Trotzdem finde ich es nicht gut, dass er es mir verschwiegen hat. Schließlich wäre ich der Bruder gewesen. Wäre gewesen. Und auch wenn mein Vater gemeint hat, dass er keine weiteren Geheimnisse vor mir hätte, wird es eine ganze Weile brauchen, bis ich ihm wieder vertrauen kann. Das hat er sich selbst zuzuschreiben.

Still angry,

PS: Ich wünsche euch trotz allem ein schönes Wochenende und hoffe, dass auch ich ein einigermaßen schönes haben kann.
          Torben denkt...   
...wirklich, SEX sei für alles die Lösung.

Gestern Abend war ich, wie gesagt, auf einer Party, auf die mich Torben, eigentlich ein guter Freund von mir, eingeladen hatte. Die Stimmung war eigentlich recht nett. Anfangs, als noch nicht so viele da waren, haben wir im Wohnzimmer zusammen gehockt und ein bisschen gelabert. Später kamen aber dann ne ganze Menge Leute, ich denke es müssen so 60 gewesen sein. Ja, Torben's Eltern haben ein Haus, das sich sehen lassen kann. Mit vielen Schlafzimmern...

Als die Party richtig losgegangen war und ich schon ein bisschen was getrunken hatte, lernte ich sogar ein Mädel kennen, die ganz nett zu sein schien. Sie hatte mich auf meine ausgefallene Kleidung angesprochen (Ich hatte ein orange-pink karriertes Hemd und eine blaue Cord-Hose an - Hey, immerhin war es eine "Bad-Taste-Party") und so sind wir ein wenig ins Gespräch gekommen. Irgendwann wurde uns die Musik zu laut und wir sind in eines der vielen... Schlafzimmer gegangen. Nicht ganz unbewusst, wir mir bald klar wurde. Denn plötzlich fing sie an, mich und sich auszuziehen und sich über mich her zu machen. Doch das wurde mir zu viel. Erstens bin ich immer noch nicht über Fabienne hinweg :/ und zweitens bin ich auch nicht dafür, nach dem ersten Gespräch gleich wie wild loszuvögeln. Also bin ich, gar nicht davon angetan, dass sich jemand so schnell an mich ran macht, schnell aus dem Zimmer gegangen, habe das Mädel - ihren Namen weiß ich schon nicht mehr - dort zurückgelassen und bin auch gleich, weil ich irgendwie keine Lust mehr auf diese Party hatte, ab nach Hause.

Heute habe ich dann erfahren, dass Torben das Mädel auf mich losgelassen hatte. Er hatte ihr ein bisschen was dafür gegeben, dass sie "mich auf andere Gedanken bringt". Na danke, das habe ich wirklich nicht nötig. Und vor allem nicht SO! Sex ist nicht die ultimative Lösung für alle Probleme! Fabienne vergesse ich dadurch nicht so einfach. Und für mich ist Sex sogar etwas sehr persönliches. Ich hätte es mir nie verziehen, wenn ich mich darauf eingelassen hätte. Und käuflich ist meine gute Laune auch nicht! Das war eine echte Scheiß Aktion, Torben! Vielen Dank auch...

Ich habe es einfach nicht länger ausgehalten, hier zu sitzen, über meine Lage nachzudenken und sonst weiter nichts zu tun. Mittlerweile sind fast 2 Monate vergangen und ich bin zu dem Entschluss gekommen, dass ich mein Leben weiterleben muss und nicht in Trauer über meine Ex-Freundin verweilen kann.

Vielmehr bin ich zu der Einsicht gekommen, dass es die ganze Trauer gar nicht Wert gewesen ist. Wenn Fabienne mir ihre Liebe so einfach nehmen kann, dann kann ich das umgekehrt auch. Der Mensch, der mich so tief fallen gelassen hat, ist es nicht Wert, von mir geliebt zu werden. Und da ich mir sicher war, die Liebe des Lebens gefunden zu haben, schließe ich nun daraus, dass es soetwas gar nicht gibt. Gibt es überhaupt Liebe, oder ist alles vergänglicher Gefühls-Unsinn? Manchmal fühle ich mich wirklich so, als ob Gott sich gegen mich gewendet hätte...

Ich fühle mich ... verlangenlos. Ich will auch gar nichts weiter fühlen. Ich weiß nur, dass ich Fabienne nicht mehr kennen will. Und ich weiß, dass ich nie wieder lieben will.

          Functional Jobs: OCaml server-side developer at Ahrefs (Full-time)   

What we need

Ahrefs is looking for a backend developer with a deep understanding of networks, distributed systems, OS fundamentals and taste for simple and efficient architectural designs. Our backend is implemented mostly in OCaml and some C++, as such proficiency in OCaml is very much appreciated, otherwise a strong inclination to intensively learn OCaml in a short term will be required. Understanding of functional programming in general and/or experience with other FP languages (F#,Haskell,Scala,Scheme,etc) will help a lot. Knowledge of C++ and/or Rust is a plus.

Every day the candidate will have to deal with:

  • 10+ petabytes of live data
  • OCaml
  • linux
  • git

The ideal candidate is expected to:

  • Independently deal with bugs, schedule tasks and investigate code
  • Make argumented technical choice and take responsibility for it
  • Understand the whole technology stack at all levels : from network and userspace code to OS internals and hardware
  • Handle full development cycle of a single component - i.e. formalize task, write code and tests, setup and support production (devops), resolve user requests
  • Approach problems with practical mindset and suppress perfectionism when time is a priority
  • Write flexible maintainable code and adapt to post-launch requirements’ tweaks

These requirements stem naturally from our approach to development with fast feedback cycle, highly-focused personal areas of responsibility and strong tendency to vertical component splitting.

Who we are

Ahrefs runs an internet-scale bot that crawls the whole Web 24/7, storing huge volumes of information to be indexed and structured in a timely fashion.

          The Resurgence of Matt Kemp: How He Went from $160M Bust to Potential All-Star   

ATLANTA — On a late afternoon in June, Matt Kemp settles into the right-handed batter's box at SunTrust Park to take his cuts.

The first few pitches tossed his way during batting practice end up sprinkled in the outfield grass. Then the power from the 6'4" Braves left fielder starts to show. Shots from his bat sail over the outfield wall. One flies over to the right of the 400-foot sign in right-center. Another lands in the Braves bullpen.

His swings, like his demeanor, are relaxed.

He looks comfortable. Happy. Free to be himself and free of distraction.

At 32, Kemp is having his best season since 2011, when he was 26 and playing for the Dodgers. He's hitting .309 with 12 home runs and 37 RBI—numbers that have him in the running for a starting spot in the All-Star Game. He's reminding baseball fans of the player who nearly won the National League triple crown in '11, when he led the league with 39 home runs and 126 RBI, finished third with a .324 average and also stole 40 bases.

Back then, it seemed like he would be a Dodger and a superstar for life.

But life beyond baseball was swirling around him.

There was the tabloid fodder—like dating Rihanna in 2010. There was the expectations-setting eight-year, $160 million contract extension. There were the injuries. And then there was the trade to San Diego. The weight gain. Then a second trade, this time to the Braves, and chatter about his San Diego mansion not selling at auction. He admitted in a post on the Players' Tribune that he had "let a big contract, the Hollywood lifestyle, injuries and bad relationships" get to him, which earned him a "reputation for being selfish, lazy and a bad teammate."

He was trending dangerously toward another label: bust.

But not so fast. Kemp's story wasn't finished. Not yet.

His resurgence in Atlanta—and his jaw-dropping transformation in the offseason—is eliminating any inkling of those perceptions. He's hitting. He's healthy. By all appearances, he's having fun.

And the Braves organization loves him.

"He is one of our leaders," manager Brian Snitker says. "He is a guy in the clubhouse that people respect. … He's just a great guy to have around."

The difference?

It's simple, Kemp says. He was hurt then. He's not now.

"It was just very frustrating," Kemp says. "It wasn't fun because sometimes I wasn't getting the results that I wanted. I was working hard and doing what I needed to do.

"It's hard to overcome injuries. It takes time, and once you get past those injuries, then you start to become more successful again, and the confidence level comes up, and you get that swag that you once had.

"It'd be tough to hear some of the things that might have been said, like, 'He lost it.' I didn't lose it. With injuries and things like that, it's not easy."

Kemp is in the Braves clubhouse, comfortably settled in a soft black leather chair as some teammates nearby shoot pool. Conversations surrounding him provide a pleasant hum.

He looks laid-back, wearing a black T-shirt that reads "EQUALITY" on the front and "42" on the back, in homage to Jackie Robinson.

The topic of conversation is recent incidents of racism in sports. Seventy years after Robinson broke the baseball color barrier, it remains one of the game's constants. The hate comes in various forms. Trolling on social media. Screaming obscenities from the stands. A fan in May uttered the N-word and threw a bag of peanuts at Orioles outfielder Adam Jones.

Racism isn't exclusive to MLB in the realm of sports. Someone painted the N-word on a gate at LeBron James' Los Angeles home before the 2017 NBA Finals started, according to the L.A. police.

Kemp acknowledges fans have spewed hate toward him dating back to his days in the minor leagues. He declines to name the cities where it occurred, "but it definitely happens, for sure," he says.

"That's not new to me or to LeBron or to Adam," Kemp says. "It's something that you've got to deal with all the time. Like LeBron said, it doesn't matter how much people admire you, how much money you have, how famous you are. Racism is still alive. It's sad. It's disappointing. I guess it's something that I guess we have to deal with. It's tough to deal with, but it's sad."

He didn't pay attention to things like that when he was younger. Maybe it didn't exist because all he was doing was playing ball and wasn't yet famous. Maybe he just didn't recognize it. He's not sure.

"But when you get older you start to realize, like, 'Dang. They just really said that,'" Kemp says. "It's kind of crazy."

Growing up in Midwest City, Oklahoma, Kemp and his cousins were "pretty much" the only African-Americans on his teams, he says. A two-sport athlete, his basketball teammates teased him for playing baseball—"What are you doing? Why do you have the cleats and a glove? You play basketball," he recalls them saying—as football and hoops were more popular where he lived.

"[My friends] never came to games," Kemp says. "They didn't know how good I was. They didn't know that the scouts were coming to see me play."

He's shown a photo of himself from his childhood.

He says he's not sure how old he was, but the picture depicts him holding a bat and taking a mighty cut—"I don't know if I was swatting flies. Hopefully I don't swing at pitches like that now," he wisecracks—with a look of determination on his young face, long before the glitz and the glamour ever entered his life.

"You look at a picture like that, and that's like—that's me as a kid dreaming about playing baseball, and now I'm living that dream," Kemp says. "Not a lot of people can say they're living their dream."

Kemp grew up in a single-parent household, with his mom, Judy Henderson, a nurse. Even though Atlanta is more than 800 miles away, it was easy for him and a cousin to get hooked on the Braves, whose games were broadcast on TBS.

"We, like, lived for the Braves," Kemp says. "We'd come home after school, turn on the TV and watch the Braves play baseball games. It was the best thing in the world."

The dream became tangible in 2003, when the Dodgers drafted Kemp in the sixth round out of high school. Three years later, he was playing at Dodger Stadium. The lights seem to shine brighter in Hollywood, and he showed signs of becoming a budding superstar in 2009, when he hit .297 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI and won his first Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.

His marquee season was in 2011. He finished second to Ryan Braun in the MVP race, but after Braun's subsequent PED admission, many think Kemp should have received the award. As a consolation prize, he did win his second Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards that year.

Life was fast-paced. He ascended the fashion ladder, seen as one of the best-dressed players in baseball. Paparazzi surrounded him when he dated Rihanna in 2010. His average dipped to .249 that season, but he still hit 28 home runs.

Fast forward to seven years later in Atlanta, with a reporter trying to tiptoe around the Rihanna question with Kemp. It elicits a laugh from him.

"I think that life. That's just part of L.A.," Kemp says. "You're in an industry where you meet famous people. You have famous friends. That's just part of being in L.A. I mean, that took a little getting used to, but the injuries were something I was never used to. That was harder on me that anything."

The injuries. There were many of them. A snapshot:

Kemp had two stints on the disabled list for hamstring injuries in 2012. The first one ended his streak of 399 consecutive games, which at the time was the longest streak by an active player. In late August, he injured his left shoulder after crashing into a wall at Coors Field, but he continued to play. In the offseason, Kemp underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum and damage to his rotator cuff. Doctors told him not to swing a bat until January.

Kemp made trips to the DL in 2013 for a right hamstring strain and joint inflammation in the surgically repaired shoulder. His return to the lineup that July lasted for one game, as he suffered a left ankle injury when sliding into home plate, a play in which Kemp later said he wasn't running hard. He headed back to the DL.

Kemp returned in mid-September, but it was a short stay. He missed a game later in the month because of soreness in his left ankle and was ruled was out for the playoffs. Kemp had a minor surgical procedure to clean up his left shoulder and also underwent microfracture surgery on the ankle. He ultimately played just 73 games in 2013, and he would start the 2014 season on the disabled list.

Through it all, the low point was suffering the ankle injury and eventually needing surgery, Kemp says.

"My shoulder was tough, but I think the ankle was the toughest because I was used to being a speed guy, stealing bases," he says. "Now it's not as easy to do that because my ankle doesn't allow me to be as fast as I once was. But I've just got to deal with it."

In 2014, his last season with Los Angeles, then-manager Don Mattingly moved Kemp out of center field, first putting him at left and then later in right. After the season, the Dodgers traded him to San Diego. While he put up solid numbers (.265 with 23 home runs and 100 RBI in 2015, and .268 with 35 HRs and 108 RBI in 2016), he was a guy with a lengthy injury history and a huge paycheck playing for a bad team.

His mammoth 2011 campaign continued to get further away in the rearview mirror.

2011 was also the year when Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who was a rookie, first met Kemp.

"He was on another level," Freeman recalls. "Every time he got up to the plate, I was like, 'Oh no, here it comes.'"

Through a mutual friend, Melvin Upton Jr., who played for both the Braves (2013-14) and the Padres (2015 through part of 2016), Freeman and Kemp hung out a couple of times. Since Kemp arrived in Atlanta, he and Freeman have grown close. Freeman calls Kemp's personality "infectious."

"It's a great personality," Freeman says. "He draws people to him, and you just want to be around him. Every day, obviously when I'm healthy, we would go get our Starbucks together, we go out to the field together, we do pretty much everything together. ...

"He wants to win. He works hard every single day, and that rubs off on other people."

Kemp's intensity is visible. But so is the joy, which he credits to his teammate and friend.

"Honestly, you know who has a lot to do with that is Freddie," Kemp says. "I've played with a lot of guys that like to have fun and joke around, but he's just one guy that—I honestly never see him, like, mad."

The chemistry worked in the lineup, too. In the 56 games he played with the Braves in 2016, Kemp hit .280 with 12 home runs and had an OPS of .855.

"It was great," Snitker says. "You get a guy, a middle-of-the-order lineup guy like that, he was a welcome addition. It lengthened our lineup, kind of broke up all the left-handers we had going."

With Kemp on the team, opponents could no longer "pick and choose" who they pitched to. "He legitimized what we had going on," Snitker says.

But not all was perfect. At the end of the 2016 season, Kemp wasn't always finishing games, playing seven innings before being replaced for defensive reasons in left field.

"Every time that happened to him, he'd come up to me in the dugout and say, 'This is embarrassing. I don't want this to happen anymore,'" Freeman says.

Heading into the offseason, Kemp was healthy, which hadn't happened often in the last few years. He took advantage of it and got to work, saying there were "no limits."

When asked what was the catalyst for change, Kemp all but shrugged it off.

"I haven't really had too many offseasons where I didn't have to rehab anything," Kemp says. "That's a big difference. You know, if you go into an offseason hurt and you have to rehab the whole offseason, that's just very frustrating. I was pretty much able to work out and do whatever it is I wanted to do."

Snitker says Kemp told the team at the end of the 2016 season, "You're going to see a new me when I get here."

"And he did," Snitker says. "Obviously, he was very dedicated to that and worked his tail off. It was real refreshing when you came in and saw the guy's dedication to what we're trying to do, so it was really good to see, and it told you a lot about the person."

Freeman got updates from Kemp during the offseason—sometimes in mid-workout.

"I got FaceTimed every week...usually when he was on the elliptical," Freeman says. "He was doing two-a-days. He would do lifting in the morning, and he would come back and do conditioning later in the day."

When Freeman was with his wife in Bal Harbour, Florida, celebrating their anniversary, he ran into Kemp. The change was already noticeable.

"You could tell after a month-and-a-half, he was already looking different," Freeman says. "People were asking me what was he looking like, and I wouldn't tell them. I said, 'You guys can just find out for yourself,' and he came to spring training obviously so much better. I think he had lost like 25 pounds."

Kemp's work continued through spring training and into the season, and the results are evident in his numbers. He started the season 8-for-16 with four doubles and two home runs in his first four games. He made a brief trip to the 10-day DL for a tight right hamstring in April, and he missed one game in June with left hamstring tightness. Aside from that, he has picked up where he left off. On April 29 at Milwaukee, he became the first Brave to hit three home runs in a game since Mark Teixeira did it in 2008. He hit his 250th career home run on May 31.

Kemp says there's been no change in approach. It's just a byproduct of being healthy and putting in the effort.

"He was first there, last to leave, was very consistent in all his workouts, and he was always out there doing his drills, in the weight room, workout room, practices, everything," Snitker says of Kemp's spring training work. "It was really good to see—and even now. I mean, the guy shows up to play every day. That's the thing. He's signed on to play the games, so he is a guy you can depend on every day. You know he's going to be there for you."

The house in San Diego hasn't sold yet, and Kemp doesn't know if there will be another auction. These days, his home base is in Prosper, Texas, about three hours away from Midwest City.

How long he stays in Atlanta remains to be seen. Despite his production, the Braves are under .500 and are struggling to keep pace with the Nationals in the NL East. Could Kemp get dealt for a third time? Speculation is slowly heating up, with Bob Nightingale of USA Today mentioning him as one of the top 25 players who could switch teams this summer.

But even as the team rebuilds, Kemp is a good fit in Atlanta. He helped protect the Braves' cornerstone, Freeman, in the lineup—before Freeman fractured his wrist in May—and his teammates are thankful he's there.

"It's nice to be able to have a guy like him—and Freddie and some of the other guys—but he's kind of my big brother," shortstop Dansby Swanson says. "I feel like he's always got my back. He kind of, like, protects me. ... He'll take me out to dinner when we're on the road and kind of just gives you that family thing. We've been able to hit it off really well, and I feel like I can go to him and trust him with a lot of things. So he's special to have around, and I am definitely very, very grateful to have him."

Will this get rid of the critics? Even if it doesn't, Freeman doesn't think that factors into Kemp's mindset.

"We play in a game of what-have-you-done-for-me-now, and the thing is last year people said he wasn't very good, but he had 35 home runs and [close to] 110 RBI," Freeman says. "That doesn't happen. He's a superstar. He's been a superstar his whole career.

"After his 2011 year, he had shoulder surgery and he dealt with hamstring problems. It's hard to compete at a high level when you're not feeling good every day. ... I don't think he's trying to put away what people are saying; he was just doing him. And if it comes along the way that it shuts people up in the process…"

Freeman pauses, and then says, "But that's not his ultimate goal.

"He's here trying to win and get back to the playoffs because he hasn't been there in a few years either, just like I haven't. That's his main goal. It's not about shutting people up, and people can say whatever they want about him, me...that just comes with the territory.  If we go 0-for-4, then they say we should be benched and stuff like that, but if we get two hits the next day, we're the greatest people ever. That just comes with it.

"But he's not trying to do that. He's just trying to do his job and help win games."

There's another element as well, and it's visible when Kemp's megawatt smile is caught on TV broadcasts. He's having fun, reminiscent to children who are playing simply for the love of the game.

"I've been playing baseball since I was four years old," Kemp says. "It's supposed to be fun. It's not supposed to be super-duper serious. I mean, you get serious at times, and of course you get competitive and you want to win, but I think a lot of people forget about having fun."

          Bartolo Colon, Mets Reunion Reportedly Under Consideration   

The New York Mets will consider a reunion with veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon, but they're skeptical of his struggles this season, per Anthony DiComo of 

The Atlanta Braves announced Thursday they'd be designating 44-year-old for assignment after he produced a cringeworthy 8.14 ERA in 13 starts this season.

Colon spent the past three years with the Mets, producing a 44-34 record with a 3.90 ERA. He showed impressive consistency while throwing over 190 innings per year, winning at least 14 games each season.

He even earned his fourth All-Star nod last year while producing a 3.43 ERA. He's also a former Cy Young award winner, having taken home the prize in 2005 with the Los Angeles Angels.

Limited room in the Mets rotation caused him to sign with the Braves in the offseason on a one-year, $12.5 million deal. However, he struggled mightily with his new team, allowing six or more runs in each of his last four starts.

Meanwhile, New York suddenly has a need for starting pitching with 80 percent of its opening day rotation on the disabled list, including stars Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey.

Although the club entered Thursday with a 35-42 record and is unlikely to give up much for a new starting pitcher, Colon could be the perfect fit.

          Hawkeye: Worst Fight Club Ever   

Project Mayhem: Venice Chapter

Come one, come all to the thing we can’t talk about…ah screw it, fight club! That’s right, on August 2, return to a blood and sweat soaked Venice basement reminiscent of the Hotel California to work out your frustrations, and then maybe never leave. Hosting, as always, is creator Kelly Thompson and her partner in creation, Leonardo Romero.

Location: We plead the fifth.

Time: When the need for violence arises.


  1. Do not talk about fight club.

*We understand that by making this you probably think we broke this rule, however, see rule 3.

  1. No rules! We don’t play fair.

*This is fight club, not whine about someone blinding you with dirt club.

  1. We do what we want.

*We, the people running the club, do what we want. You, do whatever we say. It’s the golden rule: He who runs the fight club makes the rules.

A word from our Sponsor:

Introducing our newest gladiator: Kate Bishop! That’s right, super hero Hawkeye has joined our ranks and will be fighting her way through not only our seasoned champions, but also some heavy daddy issues. Poor thing got caught up tracking down someone else’s father in her latest case, but it’s her own she’s really after.

“We’re finding Kate in a much more emotional state than we’re used to finding her,” says Thompson. “She really grew up with her father mostly believing there were some aberrations there but she thought he was a really good man in general. So peeling back those layers and finding out that’s not really true not only calls into question things about him, but it makes her question things about herself.”

Looks like daddy Hawkeye may just end up on his daughter’s super villain hit list…talk about your family drama. Good thing she has come to us in her time of need. It’s time to punch the pain away, Kate.

“Kate is a very good fighter so even if she doesn’t look like the guys who are down there in these cages, she’s going to do well in a one on one fight. She’s incredibly smart, she’s well trained, and she’s a super hero,” warns Thompson. But let’s not forget that, that means she must stick too a code, she can’t just hurt people willy-nilly. Sounds like prime time for you newbies to make your mark, so come on down!



            Deadpooled: Kate is going to wipe the floor with you.

Clint4life: Whatever, she’s not even the real Hawkeye.

Cagedfighter16: Is anybody reading this?! COME AND RESCUE ME!!! They’re keeping me in a cage and I don’t want to be here!!!

TheRealKateBishop: Okay I was playing along with this at first but now it’s on. I’m not the sad seal at the zoo, for one thing I can’t balance a ball on my nose…I’m busting everyone out, finding Molly’s dad and taking you creeps down!

Deadpooled: Oh snap!

Be sure to grab seats for Kate’s fight club debut and find out if she solves her case or gets lost in a whirlwind of fists and emotions in HAWKEYE #9 out August 2, written by Kelly Thompson with art by Leonardo Romero.

For over 50 years, Spider-Man has been a sensational standout in the Marvel Universe, and this summer, the web-slinger swings onto the silver screen once more in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”! In celebration of this stories history, we present Spidey’s spectacular step-by-step story!

The X-Men’s Iceman clashed with Spider-Man in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #92, but after realizing his mistake, joined forces with our hero to put the kibosh on Sam Bullit, a crooked politician wooing Gwen Stacy following the death of her father. Spidey stood alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at a charity event in AVENGERS #85, but when Gwen announced a permanent move to London in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #93, he tried to drown his sorrows in a rematch with The Prowler.

After a bout with The Beetle in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #94, and making up his mind to fly to London to bring Gwen back, Peter Parker changed to his alter-ego in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #95 to put down some British criminals. Back home again in CAPTAIN AMERICA #137, the Web-Slinger held off an attack by The Falcon, then teamed with the high-flying hero and Captain America versus Stone Face in CAPTAIN AMERICA #138.

Peter took a job with Norman Osborn in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #96, but the business tycoon allowed the pressures in his head to explode and reawaken his other self, The Green Goblin. He battled Spidey in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #97, while unbeknownst to the two combatants, Norman’s son and Peter’s friend Harry fell under the spell of a drug dealer. The Wall Crawler crashed the pusher’s party in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #98, and made Norman see the light of reason by forcing him to face his son’s pill problem.

Spider-Man helped out Daredevil in a fracas with Namor the Sub-Mariner in DAREDEVIL #77, then broke up a prison riot in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #99. Later, weary of his role as a super hero, Peter concocted a potion to be rid of his spider-powers in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #100, but instead gave himself an extra four arms. Now sporting as many limbs as an actual spider, the young hero stumbled into the path of Morbius the Living Vampire in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #101, and felt immense relief when his friend Dr. Curt Connors cured him of his multiple arms in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #102.

Desiring nothing more than a chance to get away from it all, Peter flew with Gwen and his boss J. Jonah Jameson to the Savage Land in search of a legendary monster in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #103. When they found the creature, it took the timely intervention of Ka-Zar to unstick them from the web they’d fallen into.

          Celebrating Star Wars #22   

We all know that the first Star Wars film changed the face of pop culture forever when it hit theaters 40 years ago today—but it’s not just the movie that’s celebrating that milestone in 2017. Star Wars comics arrived with force in 1977, and hundreds of issues later, they’re more popular now than ever.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, we’re looking back at our 40 favorite moments from the history of comics from a galaxy far, far away—one day at a time.

Classic Star Wars (1992) #1

Classic Star Wars (1992) #1

What is Marvel Unlimited?

By 1979, the world started to understand that Star Wars went beyond just a blockbuster movie. Kenner’s toy line proved incredibly successful, Marvel’s STAR WARS comics flew off the shelves, and soon enough, our newspaper funny pages took fans to a galaxy far, far away. The CLASSIC STAR WARS line of comics reprints these strips.

If you’re inclined to assume that these stories never fit into Star Wars canon, CLASSIC STAR WARS #1 will squash such presumptions right away. The comic reissues an early-‘80s tale by Archie Goodwin—who also wrote many Marvel STAR WARS comics of that era—and penciler Al Williamson released by the LA Times Syndicate. Goodwin used knowledge gleaned from “The Empire Strikes Back” to craft a throwaway movie line into an entire story set between the first two films. Remember when Han tells Leia he’s leaving the Alliance because “The bounty hunter on Ord Mantell changed my mind?” Goodwin introduces us to Skorr—i.e., said bounty hunter!

The story of this encounter lasts through CLASSIC STAR WARS #2 and remains remarkably readable as a cohesive comic book arc, despite the chopped-up nature of its original media vehicle. It’s classic Star Wars, indeed.

One of the best parts about being a comic reader? Bringing new fans into the fold! Comics might not be exclusively for kids anymore, but there remain plenty of all-ages books to share with children and other new readers including MARVEL ADVENTURES SPIDER-MAN!

Renowned creators like Jeff Parker, Sean McKeever, Mike Norton, Zeb Wells, Peter David, Fred Van Lente, Pop Mhan, Ryan Stegman Todd Dezago, Roger Langridge, Paul Tobin, and Chris Samnee all jumped in at various times to tell tales starring not only Spider-Man, but also a variety of other characters from the Marvel Universe! Instead of fully re-telling the original Stan Lee and Steve Ditko stories, these take cues from those while branching out in new directions along the way. The first issue covered the origin while the next two pitted the Web-Slinger against the Sinister Six and the fourth teamed up Spidey and Human Torch first to fight a guy called Street and then the giant monster Goom!

No matter the threat he faced or the fellow heroes he met up with, Peter Parker balanced all of that with the usual life of a high school science genius whose classmates just don’t understand him. In other words, MARVEL ADVENTURES SPIDER-MAN worked with all of the building blocks of Spider-Man without getting too dark.

Whether you get your hands on the original issues, trades, or the digital versions, these stories make for a fun and exciting entry-point for new readers. In addition to getting to know the basics of Spider-Man and the Marvel Universe, they also offer a great entry course in the ways of actually reading comics.

          Spider-Man Returns as Vulture Attacks ‘Marvel Avengers Academy’   

Spider-Man and some of his spectacular friends swing back to “Marvel Avengers Academy” as Peter’s other school—the Midtown School of Science and Technology—prepares for their homecoming celebration. But the villainous Vulture has other ideas! He launches an attack on both learning institutions and it’ll take everyone at the Academy—plus some new pals Peter’s made over the last year—to thwart his plan and save the dance.

We sat down with Allen Warner, Lead Narrative Designer at TinyCo, to learn everything Spidey brings with him in this latest event. What’s bringing the web-head and his spider-powered crew back to “Avengers Academy”?

Allen Warner: At the end of our previous Multiverse event, we learned that someone had been scavenging Maestro’s collection of “trophies” for tech and weapons, along with various labs and superhuman battle sites across New York. Nick Fury tasked Spider-Man with finding the perpetrator, and he’s coming back to report what he’s found. It also coincides with the homecoming dance at the Midtown School of Science and Technology, so Spidey will be bringing the party to Avengers Academy, and bugging everyone for dating advice. Why is Vulture so set on laying waste to Midtown Sci-Tech and the Academy?

Allen Warner: Vulture is a brilliant scientist and inventor, but was turned down by both Avengers Academy and Midtown Sci-Tech after being accused of stealing other students’ tech and ideas to further his own goals. He feels like his fellow super-scientists don’t respect him, and the entire world is conspiring against him, so he starts using tech and weapons found in various superhuman battle sites to rebuild and repurpose mechanical monstrosities into things like an army of Vulture-ized Octobots. He wants power and respect, and he’ll destroy everyone and everything at both Avengers Academy and Midtown Sci-Tech to get it. The event district gives us a peek at Peter’s life outside the Academy; what new things will players discover?

Allen Warner: The event district is Midtown Sci-Tech itself, decked out for homecoming. It’s completely different than anything we’ve done before, and really cool because it brings a lot of fun, school flavor the campus. Unfortunately, Vulture shows up to ruin the party, so he’s perched atop the school with his prisoners and minions, plotting his attack on Avengers Academy. And the event building carves out a space for one particular Spider-heroine…

Allen Warner: Yes, we’re big Spider-Gwen fans over here too, so we wanted her to share the spotlight. The event building is a multi-tiered punk rock venue where Gwen and some surprise guests are going to perform, and throw their own brand of homecoming bash. The building represents Gwen really well with its gleaming white exteriors, colorful neon blue and pink graffiti, a unique stage and dance floor, and some other really cool surprises. How will players battle Vulture and his refurbished Octobot army?

Allen Warner: Players will battle Vulture’s tech on the campus as a team, while battling Vulture himself, and a couple of foes he’s tricked into fighting by his side. Part of his plan is to create chaos and keep the heroes busy by setting Symbiotes loose in New York, so your heroes will also battle in the streets of New York to protect the city. What new faces will join the Academy—and the fight against Vulture—as Peter calls on more of his friends from across the multiverse?

Allen Warner: A really cool collection of various Spider-Heroes, amazing friends, and one grumpy newspaper publisher. Players will be able to recruit Silver Sable, Spider-Girl, Agent Venom, J. Jonah Jameson, and Silk. J. Jonah Jameson was really popular as a cameo character during our first Spider-Man event, and I’d forgotten how fun he is to write until this event came around. His personality is great to bounce off of the students, and I can’t wait for everyone to see his visual upgrades. Silver Sable is one of my favorite Spidey characters. She looks amazing, and is a cool fit alongside some of the spies and mercenaries running around the school. Agent Venom is one of the most awesome Symbiotes, and he brings something completely unique to the table, and of course [his alter ego] Flash [Thompson] and Peter Parker have a classic rivalry. Spider-Girl and Silk are two of the coolest spider-powered characters in my opinion. They both were very close to making the cut in our first Spider-Man event, so I’m really excited to see them finally make it into “Avengers Academy.” As always, our art and animation teams have knocked it out of the park with everyone’s designs and actions, and I think players are going to love having all of these characters at their school. And there must be some cool new outfits on the way as well…

Allen Warner: Definitely. There are new outfits for Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Mary Jane, Venom, and Doctor Octopus. It’s a cool mix of some iconic looks, some seldom-seen but awesome outfits from the comics, and a couple of classics given fun Avengers Academy-style re-imaginings. It’s a really cool group that I think people will love. With the second Guardians of the Galaxy event, players were able to recruit the heroes from the previous event; will we see something similar here?

Allen Warner: Yes, we got a really positive response from players during the Guardians 2 event who enjoyed that opening week featuring characters from the original event because it gave them a first or second chance at characters they’d missed out on before, so we decided to do a similar thing here. The opening week will give new and longtime players the chance to get one of the outfits and a few of the characters from the original event, as well as a new character and outfit. Over the course of the event, players will have a chance to get every single character and outfit from the original Spider-Man event, including Miles Morales, Mysterio, Black Cat, Electro, Green Goblin, and many more. Once the Vulture is thwarted, what new adventures will players be able to look forward to?

Allen Warner: We’re going to find that Vulture isn’t the only person who’s secretly holding a grudge against Avengers Academy. He’s been sharing his scavenged tech and weapons with some faraway enemies, and they’re ready to go to war.

          Black Bolt: Royal Likeness   

Over the years, Blackagar Boltagon has filled many roles: leader of the Inhumans, husband, father, intergalactic ruler—and now, prisoner! Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward set up quite a challenge for the one-time king when they launched BLACK BOLT a few months back: escape from an epic space prison!

Teamed up with the likes of Absorbing Man, Black Bolt continues to figure out how to flee the seemingly inescapable jail in the stars so he can find his way back to his family. We talked with Ward about designing Black Bolt’s cage, working on the silent hero, and making his mark on a childhood favorite. This book has definitely taken Black Bolt in some unexpected directions. How has it been crafting these stories with Saladin so far?

Christian Ward: I’m drawn to stories I can’t predict. I think that’s one reason why shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” are so enjoyable. Reading Saladin’s scripts for BLACK BOLT [has] had those same unexpected elements and I’ve loved reading them. Bringing a story to life that you’re already enjoying in its script form is easy. I have a background in creator-owned comics; I’m used to working on books I’m personally invested in and working on BLACK BOLT with Saladin has felt no different.

I think he would agree that we’ve really clicked working on BLACK BOLT. It’s been an absolute joy and I feel very lucky to be working with Saladin. I felt like we’re telling one story together infused with all these personal elements. I definitely feel like we’re trying to say something with BLACK BOLT, whilst remembering it’s a super hero comic and it should also be a lot of fun. Even with his first comic, Saladin’s going to be [among] many peoples’ very favorite writers. He’s certainly one of mine now and hopefully this will be the first of many projects we do together. The story mixes elements from classic prison break tales with sci-fi and super heroes. Do you enjoy playing with those pieces and building new structures with them?

Christian Ward: I do! Lots of my previous projects—like ODY-C for instance—have been about clashing genres together. I love the tension you get from mixing disparate ingredients. With BLACK BOLT, as well as the genres you mentioned, I’ve been having fun approaching parts like a Gothic horror, not just with the scenery and the lighting but also trying to use page layouts to make it feel foreboding or claustrophobic.

There have been pages where I’ve tried to make the panel [borders] feel as much of the prison bars as the ones I’ve actually drawn. Becoming narrower and narrower as our characters are contained or crushed within them. It’s been fun to allow the different genres, like horror, influence how certain elements of the book look and even let each issue feel a little different. For instance, in issue #4 I’ve been playing with formal nine-panel grids and half tone textures as a way to exaggerate the old school comic book-ness of the issue. It keeps me on my toes and hopefully it keeps the [book] exciting from issue to issue for the reader. You’re setting much of the action inside of this jail. How much of it did you have designed ahead of time?

Christian Ward: Lots of great design is about tension and what Saladin had in mind for our prison was perfect to play to that idea. He had this idea that it would be equal parts Victorian gaol and [Jack] Kirby techno, so for every stone pillar there has to be this contrasting piece of insane, impossible machinery.

I read about Panopticon so I knew I wanted there to be eyes everywhere because big floating over-watching eyes are always creepy and it had to feel huge, I wanted Black Bolt to feel insignificant there. I certainly didn’t design a physical place like an architect would, rather I spent a lot of time thinking about how it would feel, or maybe how the inmates would feel being held there. I wanted the prison to feel intangible, like a monster glimpsed in the darkness, a place that was ever changing. Somewhere it would be impossible to get your footing or stay sane. An M.C. Escher drawing come to life. BLACK BOLT has incorporated some interesting characters from Absorbing Man to Death’s Head. How has it been putting your own spin on them and making them work in this story?

Christian Ward: The first thing I have to say is what a huge and continuing honor it is to be drawing these characters that so many greats have drawn before me. It’s very exciting to, as you say, put a spin on them. It’s a tricky balancing act to honor what’s come before and try to shine a different light on them. Hopefully success comes from loving the characters in the first place. For instance, when I was a teenager Death’s Head was my favorite character growing up in the UK. He was my Hulk, my Spider-Man, my X-Men. He was my number one. So when I came to design my take on him I let that love guide the design. What I love about the character—that’s what I bring to the forefront.

And oh boy, Absorbing Man! I love drawing Carl. This might be Black Bolt’s book, but I think Crusher’s the heart of it. It’s been so much fun to draw him not as a bad guy, but as a man, and try and make him feel real. Whereas I’m trying to keep Bolt at arm’s length I really want readers to feel very empathetic towards Crusher. I’ve really grown to love the guy so I hope that’s coming through. Does Black Bolt’s silence offer any particular challenges when you’re working from panel to panel?

Christian Ward: It’s a huge challenge. I remember reading about the difference between TV, movie, and stage acting and the “volume” in which actors have to project or emote in each. Unlike in theater, for instance, on a giant movie screen the smallest of facial movements can be read. I’m aiming for giant movie screen acting here. I’ve always enjoyed comic book acting and it’s huge fun to try and convey all the subtleties of Bolt’s face. I really wanted to have him feel reserved and withdrawn from us but that as the story progressed the wall that he’d built up around himself—his own personal inner prison wall—would break down and we’d see more of those emotions showing on his face and in his body language. You know, as much as I love the big cosmic moments of the book, it was the challenge of drawing Bolt that made me take the project on and I’m having the time of my life with it.

BLACK BOLT #3 breaks into stores on July 5, with issue #4 following on August 2, thanks to Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward.

Star Wars: Tag & Bink Are Dead (2001) #1

Star Wars: Tag & Bink Are Dead (2001) #1

What is Marvel Unlimited?

In 1966, a play known as “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead”—later adapted to film in 1990—dared to retell “Hamlet” from the perspective of two minor characters. It offered a comedic take on key moments in Shakespeare’s masterpiece by implying that the bumbling duo in some way influenced key events.

Much along those lines, TAG AND BINK ARE DEAD delves into the background characters of “A New Hope” and “The Empire Strikes Back” to offer a little more “actual back story” to moments you’ve probably never thought twice about. Starting with the battle aboard Princess Leia’s Tantive IV that kicks off “Episode IV,” we follow two Rebels—the eponymous Tag and Bink—as they eventually escape Empire imprisonment and decide to disguise themselves as stormtroopers aboard the Death Star.

The comedic consequences result in “back stories” for moments like the lone TIE fighter that the Millennium Falcon encounters near the Death Star, the real reason Boba Fett showed up at Bespin, and how the Rebels acquired the shuttle Tyderium they’ll later use to infiltrate Endor in “Return of the Jedi.” Oh, and those two stormtroopers discussing “another drill” as Obi-Wan disarms the Death Star’s tractor beam? That’s Tag and Bink in inaction.

Writer Kevin Rubio masterminded TAG AND BINK ARE DEAD, and followed with a sequel in 2006—and this wasn’t the first time Rubio showed us “what really happened” in Star Wars movies. In 1996, he made a name for himself as the creator of “Troops,” a parody of “Cops” from a stormtrooper’s perspective largely responsible for ushering in an entire era of Star Wars fan films.

High school’s rough for anyone, whether you’re a web-slinging superhero or a teenage girl with a crush on one. Sean McKeever and Takeshi Miyazawa explored the latter with a series of books called MARY JANE, MARY JANE: HOMECOMING and two volumes of SPIDER-MAN LOVES MARY JANE, though other creators helped bring the story to a close.

Set in an alternate universe in which Peter, Harry Osborn, Mary Jane, Gwen Stacy, Flash Thompson and Liz Allan all attended high school together – Peter met Harry and Gwen in college in the 616 – these stories explore Watson’s ever-changing feelings for the masked man of her dreams!

Initially launched with the four issue limited series MARY JANE in 2004, the overarching story focused on a young woman dealing with the intensity of her feelings while creating a carefree persona. Mirroring the reasons readers initially fell in love with Spider-Man, Mary Jane worried about making money and appeasing her parental units, but not to make web fluid, she wanted to go to the homecoming dance.

In fact, much of the drama in this series revolved around the big dance, MJ’s desire to buy the perfect dress for it and also figure out who she wanted to go with. She and Harry Osborn might have seemed perfect for each other on paper, but she had another in mind: Spider-Man.

Of course, her best friend Liz Allan thought her crazy for wanting such a thing, but she really lost her mind after seeing MJ and Flash in am apparently romantic moment!

All the while, a nerdy kid named Peter Parker started appearing more and more in Mary Jane’s life, first as a tutor and then as more of a friend. We all know how that relationship evolved in one version of the Wall-Crawler’s history, but to see what happens in this one, you’ll just have to read all of SPIDER-MAN LOVES MARY JANE which ended with a five issue limited series second season volume in 2009.

A Tangled Web

While MARY JANE and SPIDER-MAN LOVES MARY JANE didn’t see the title character become a super hero, that’s not the case with every other version of MJ from the various realities. In EXILES we met a version of Watson who not only became Spider-Woman, but also joined the Avengers as seen in EXILES #20. She and the dimension-hopping Sunfire strike up a relationship as they all battle the spreading threat of the Phalanx aided by Asgardians. Later, during a time when the team found themselves displaced on various dimensions, Sunfire and MJ got to spend six weeks together before the Exile teleported away on another adventure.

In the next installment we take a look at the all ages books SPIDER-MAN ADVENTURES!

          X-Men: Gold – Young Mutants in Love (or Love Is Golden)   

The on-again-off-again roller-coaster romance of Kitty Pryde and Peter Rasputin’s become the stuff of legend among X-Men fans, and it’s about to receive a new wrinkle in X-MEN: GOLD #9, out August 8.

The two star-crossed lovers first met in UNCANNY X-MEN #129 when Kitty first walked into the original X-Mansion and met the man-mountain mutant called Colossus. An inauspicious beginning to such a star-crossed love story, to be sure, but by UNCANNY X-MEN #174 they’d recognized their attraction to each other and shared a kiss or three.

Uncanny X-Men (1963) #129

Peter threw the first monkeywrench into the mix right around the time he’d returned from the first Secret Wars in UNCANNY X-MEN #183 and declared his love for the alien Zsaji to Kitty, though said Zsaji’d perished by that time. Ms. Pryde ratcheted up the anti-feels by joining Excalibur and heading into a hot-and-heavy thing with a guy named Pete Wisdom—a relationship Peter gave his “blessing” to, but also kept one metallic eye on.

When the Legacy Virus later tore apart the mutant population, Colossus seemingly sacrificed his life during the chaos in X-MEN #110, prompting Kitty to sort out her feelings for the big lunk and insure his ashes traveled back to Russia. Imagine her surprise when Peter turned up hale and hearty in ASTONISHING X-MEN #14, strange situation which led to a passionate reunion and a new outbreak of dating.

Alas, right around the time of the X-Men’s latest disagreement with the Juggernaut and his power source Cyttorak in UNCANNY X-MEN #543, Kitty broke it off again with Peter when she disagreed with his well-intentioned noble thoughts to die for her in battle. Sadly, that meant that she and Colossus’ couple-ness still existed in a state of suspension when Kitty got stuck in a giant bullet traveling around the solar system in GIANT-SIZE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1. Peter tried to move on with his life, but to his credit, he tattooed “Katya” in her memory on his chest in UNCANNY X-MEN #507

No good mutant hero ever stays lost, though, and so Kitty Pryde returned to Earth, thanks to Magneto, in UNCANNY X-MEN #522 and reclaimed her claim to the big metal guy in UNCANNY X-MEN #522…which of course hit the skids by UNCANNY X-MEN #543. The former Shadowcat struck up a few new relationships in the aftermath, in particular with Iceman in WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #14, and with Star-Lord in X-MEN: THE TRIAL OF JEAN GREY #1-6

Today, Kitty’s done with star-hopping scoundrels and Peter’s, well, Peter, and the two of them, as seen in X-MEN: GOLD #1, believe they can fight alongside each other as “just friends.” But, anybody who’s ever been in their position knows that trick never really works, right?

Stay tuned…we should be finding out whether or not our beloved Kitlossus will ever be a thing again very, very soon.

          Comment on Ask Abel by Brian Hint   
Hi Abel, I’ve listened to many of your podcasts, read your book, subscribed to, and been following your diet (which I love) for nearly 4 months now. I’ve never been overweight, but I’ve always had a few extra pounds on my waist that’s never come off, that is, until now. I generally have more energy throughout the day and I feel great about the foods I’m putting in my body and my family’s bodies as well. It costs a little more to get the organic grass fed food, but I figure better to pay now than later. So thank you. You’ve made a small investment on your website turn into a huge investment in myself and my family. Now, we all know you and your guests discuss how saturated fat can be your friend, and there are those in the media who’ve tried to push other un-healthy options upon us for profit, but my wife and I recently came across an article about the dangers of coconut oil. Since I follow your recipes, and they include coconut oil, I’d be curious to find our your take on this study. Is this propaganda for big food companies, or should I be concerned for my health? Look forward to your opinion.

          No Shelter From the Woj Bombs   

On Wednesday, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted out some cataclysmic NBA news.

This was a blockbuster move—the Los Angeles Clippers’ stellar point guard signing up to play with recent MVP runner-up James Harden—a transaction huge enough that it may affect which team loses to the Golden State Warriors in next year’s conference finals.

If you read the replies to Wojnarowski’s tweet, though, one of the biggest NBA trades in years seems secondary—overshadowed by the man who broke the story.

In the parlance of NBA Twitter, Wojnarowski dropped a “Woj bomb,” hence the deployment of mushroom cloud GIFs.

In his 10 years at Yahoo—the company gave Wojnarowski his own website, the Vertical, in 2016—the NBA reporter built a reputation as the basketball world’s Eye of Providence, a mysterious, all-seeing entity who breaks news with terrifying speed and accuracy.

Judging by the reaction to his tweets, one might get the sense that he is actually the one setting these deals into motion—that teams make moves because Wojnarowski reports them rather than the other way around. It’s all part of the mythos of Woj, a cult of personality devoted to a man who doesn’t seem to have much of a discernible personality beyond “reporter who is always on Twitter.”

On Saturday, Wojnarowski will be joining ESPN, a move that coincides with (and in certain exceedingly nerdy circles perhaps overshadows) the start of the NBA’s free agency period. For years, his identity has been wrapped up in the fact that he doesn’t work for the Worldwide Leader in Sports. He’s been known to pick at ESPN in his columns, sometimes referring to them as an unnamed “cable sports company.” His defection to the world’s most powerful sports media company at once feels surprising and inevitable. It’s a marriage of questionable harmony but undoubtable impact, the equivalent of hiring a T. rex to hem your pants.

In his tenure at Yahoo, Wojnarowski has been a one-man wrecking crew, often out-scooping the world’s sports media hydra on the strength of his connections and unparalleled ability to type with his thumbs. Earlier this week, in his last days at the Vertical, he broke the news that Jeff Van Gundy—who works for ESPN—will be coaching USA Basketball’s World Cup qualifying team.

Wojnarowski’s unique ability to delight his fans and bedevil his rivals has been most evident during the NBA draft, when he managed to report, via Twitter, the upcoming selections well before they’re announced on ESPN’s live broadcast. The fact that one guy could ruin the drama and pageantry of a manicured television event infuriated ESPN execs and undoubtedly contributed to the company’s decision to make him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

In tandem with Wojnarowski’s hiring, ESPN laid off a number of talented NBA reporters, many of whom covered individual teams and contributed postgame recaps and analysis. They also terminated Marc Stein, who has long been Wojnarowski’s biggest competitor. Stein is a prodigious reporter in his own right, and many within the company have expressed dismay at his departure. Given that it seems like the network is shifting toward breaking news and scoops, there’s only one logical explanation for laying off Stein: ESPN’s suits feel it’s important to have Wojnarowski be the unquestioned leader of their NBA scoop machine. If you’re looking for an explanation for why that might be, you should ask someone who has better sources than I do.

ESPN, which pays $1.4 billion annually for the rights to televise NBA games, wants to claim total ownership of almost every NBA storyline. The network’s coverage of the NFL provides an instructive example. In 2013, Deadspin did a nice play-by-play of a story the network created out of thin air and subsequently covered to death. It began on SportsCenter, when one of ESPN's NFL pundits said, “I truly believe Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever.” ESPN got Kaepernick’s response to the statement, and that response was then covered at length on the network’s myriad shouting-head programs. The pundit who made the comment eventually became a featured guest across its various platforms, and the issue was debated for days until a natural endpoint was reached. (It somehow became about Tim Tebow.)

ESPN has been built to trim every last edible bit from a story, and with basketball’s greatest rumormonger and scoop-getter at its disposal, there’s no telling what the Worldwide Leader will now be capable of. My best guess is it will look a lot like what Gustavus Swift did to cows back in the 19th century.

Swift owned and operated one of the largest slaughterhouses in Chicago, but selling salted pork scraps wasn’t enough for him. In the late 1800s, the market demanded fresh beef, which meant cattle were shipped live to Eastern population centers where they would be butchered and sold after transit. Swift had a nose for inefficiency, and he got a great whiff of it with each and every steer-filled boxcar that passed through Chicago on its way east. If his company could somehow slaughter and butcher the beef in Chicago, he’d be able to expand his operation while more efficiently meeting demand.

To facilitate this, Swift hired an engineer to design a refrigerated train car that could ship dressed meat over long distances without sacrificing freshness. The Swift-owned cars were loaded with ice in Wisconsin, packed with beef at Swift’s Chicago slaughterhouse, and then sent east and sold for maximum profit. The supply process was so efficient and direct, a side of beef in the freezer of a New York wholesaler would hang off the same hook as the cow from which it was cut back in Chicago weeks prior.

It is perhaps a bit on the nose that the process Swift pioneered is known as “vertical integration.” The man ESPN lured from the Vertical will provide the grist for a never-ending mill of debate shows, news programs, and interview segments. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the NBA receives as much attention on Twitter during summer free agency as it does during the regular season. ESPN is counting on its ability to grab that attention by harnessing the multikiloton power of the Woj bomb.

Consider, though, that the two biggest NBA stories of the past five years—LeBron James’ return to Cleveland and Kevin Durant’s move to Golden State—got broken via personal essays published in Sports Illustrated and the Players’ Tribune respectively, not via reporters on Twitter. If a player is savvy enough, he can circumvent the scoop machine and take ownership of his own breaking news, Adrian Wojnarowski be damned.

If history is any indicator, the establishment won’t give up the means of production without a fight. In the words of Karl Marx, “Tune into First Take for more reaction.”

          Bahrain invokes WTO's 'national security' clause in Qatar row   

By Tom Miles

GENEVA (Reuters) - Bahrain told a WTO meeting on Friday trade restrictions imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates were justified on national security grounds, a trade official who attended the meeting said.

Speaking on behalf of all three countries, Bahrain's representative told the WTO's Goods Council the measures were "in accordance with Article XXI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade", which allows the usual rules to be broken for national security reasons, the official said.

Reuters could not immediately find any precedent in the WTO's 22-year history of a country explicitly and formally citing the "national security exemption" to pre-empt a potential trade dispute.

Some trade experts say that using national security as a defence risks weakening the WTO by removing the taboo and enabling countries to escape international trade obligations.

On Thursday the head of Qatar's WTO office told Reuters that his country was exploring all legal avenues to challenge the "blockade", including a complaint to the WTO.

He said that a national security defence could be challenged on the grounds of necessity and proportionality.

The feud erupted this month when Qatar's three Gulf neighbours, together with Egypt, severed diplomatic and travel links with Doha, accusing it of supporting terrorism and regional foe Iran. Qatar denies the accusations.

Qatar, which had asked for the issue to be discussed at the Council on Trade in Goods, following a similar debate at the Council on Trade in Services earlier this month, said the restrictions affected commercially important sectors such as aluminium.

The UAE's representative said there were treaties against the funding of activities that threaten other countries' national security, and warned against the WTO intervening in the matter, the official who attended the meeting said.

Egypt's representative also said the measures fell under "exceptional circumstances" and were therefore consistent with WTO rules.

A U.S. trade diplomat said that all parties should remain open to negotiations, the trade official said, and that the United States would not get ahead of current diplomatic discussions and would continue to support the mediation efforts of the Emir of Kuwait.

Turkey's representative at the meeting said Turkey hoped for a quick resolution, emphasising "hundreds years of fraternal and strong ties" among the countries involved.

          Exclusive: India presses Microsoft for Windows discount in wake of cyber attacks   

By Euan Rocha

MUMBAI (Reuters) - India is pressing Microsoft Corp to offer a sharply discounted one-time deal to the more than 50 million Windows users in the country so that they can upgrade to the latest Windows 10 operating system in the wake of ransomware attacks.

Microsoft officials in India have "in principle agreed" to the request, Gulshan Rai, India's cyber security coordinator, told Reuters over the phone on Friday.

A spokeswoman for Microsoft in India declined to comment on the matter. Officials at the company's headquarters in the United States and regional headquarters in Asia also declined to comment.

If Microsoft agreed to such a discount, it could open up the global software giant to similar requests from around the world. Rai said the government was in talks with Microsoft management in India. It is not immediately clear whether any other countries were seeking similar deals.

Rai said India began talks with Microsoft after the WannaCry ransomware attack last month, noting that both WannaCry and this week's attack, dubbed by some cyberexperts "NotPetya", exploited vulnerabilities in older iterations of the Windows OS.

"The quantum of the price cut, we expect some detail on in a couple of days," Rai said, adding the Indian government expected the company to offer the software at "throw-away prices."

"It will be a one-time upgrade offer to Windows 10 and it will be a discounted price for the entire country," said Rai, who was hand-picked by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be the country's first cyber security chief.

Rai declined to be more specific, but said he was confident that it would be "less than a quarter of the current price."

Rai, who has over two decades of experience in different IT areas including cyber security, said his team began coordinating with government agencies and regulators to push for OS upgrades soon after the WannaCry attack began on May 12.

The government's quick action helped minimize the impact of the NotPetya attack, which affected two of India's container port terminals, he said.

The government has also worked with banks to ensure that some 200,000 of the more than 240,000 ATMs in the country, most of which run on older Windows XP systems, have been upgraded with security patches released by Microsoft following the WannaCry attack, Rai said.

This is just an interim solution, however, said Rai, because although the patches fix vulnerabilities in older OS versions, they retain the limitations of those versions.

"New OS versions have different architecture, much improved architecture and much more resiliency," said Rai.


Windows 10 Home currently retails for 7,999 rupees ($124) in India, while the Pro version of the software typically used by large companies and institutions costs 14,999 rupees ($232).

Roughly 96 percent of an estimated 57 million computers in India currently run on Windows, according to Counterpoint Research. Apple- and Linux-based systems account for the rest.

Given that only a small minority of Windows users in India already have Windows 10, Microsoft could be forgoing several billion dollars of potential revenue if they agreed to sell just the more widely used Home version of Windows 10 at a quarter of its current Indian retail price.

In the price-sensitive Indian market, people using computers in households or small businesses often do not upgrade their OS given the steep costs. The wide use of pirated Windows OS versions, which would not automatically receive security patches, exacerbate the vulnerabilities.

In light of the attacks, Rai said, the government "wants to incentivise the common man to upgrade their systems".

The WannaCry attack in May affected a state-run power firm in western India, while the NotPetya attack this week crippled operations at two port terminals in India operated by shipping giant AP Moller Maersk, which was affected globally.

          Analysis: "Bad" foreign firms drive U.S. manufacturing jobs revival   

By Lesley Wroughton and Howard Schneider

SPARTANBURG/CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - Years before Donald Trump began promising to bring back good manufacturing jobs by getting tough with U.S. trade partners, such jobs have already been on the rise, largely thanks to foreign companies now cast as villains in Trump's narrative.

Reuters analysis of federal jobs data shows that out of 656,000 new manufacturing jobs created between 2010 and 2014, two thirds can be attributed to foreign direct investment.

More recent jobs numbers are not yet available, but over $700 billion in foreign capital has poured in over the last two years bringing total foreign investment to $3.7 trillion at the end of 2016, a world record. (Graphic:

Now foreign companies that have spent billions of dollars on U.S. factories and local leaders who host them worry that global supply networks that back those investments will fray if Trump makes good on his pledge to roll back trade liberalization.

The U.S. president has threatened to tear up North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico and slap higher tariffs on nations that run trade surpluses with the United States, such as Germany or China. The administration is also discussing tighter immigration rules and more security screening of investment.

The tough message helped sway swing northeastern and Midwestern Rust Belt states Trump's way in the 2016 election, but puts him at odds with companies and local leaders in the south, which has driven the recent growth in manufacturing jobs.

The southern states have voted for Trump, but have also spent decades wooing foreign companies with flexible labor laws, financial incentives and investment in ports, roads and other infrastructure.


The courtship has spawned new auto plants from Kentucky to Georgia, and a new Airbus plant in Mobile, Alabama.

Few places highlight the gap between Trump's rhetoric and local aspirations better than Spartanburg in South Carolina.

German carmaker BMW has invested here $8 billion in a 1.2 million square foot (11.15 hectares) assembly plant, which has become the largest single exporter of cars by value from the United States.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, a Republican and Trump supporter, credits the German automaker for putting his state on the global investment map.

"The presence of this company changed everything in the trajectory of our state," McMaster said on Monday at an event unveiling BMW's newest X3 sports utility vehicle.

Its Chief Executive Harald Krueger said the carmaker would invest additional $600 million in Spartanburg over the next four years, adding 1,000 jobs to the 9,000-strong workforce, and spend further $200 million on employee training and education.

But the poster child of South Carolina's success also doubles as a whipping boy. In January, BMW's plans to build a plant in Mexico drew Trump's ire and last month the U.S. president was quoted as saying Germany was "very bad" on trade and selling too many cars in the United States.

And even as the company highlights its contribution to the U.S. economy and the benefits of free trade, it is hedging its bets by preparing for a possible protectionist backlash.

Outside of the spotlight, BMW is retooling factories in South Africa and China to build volume models like the X3 SUV, reducing its dependence on Spartanburg.

“We have a big footprint here, and we are flexible enough," Oliver Zipse, BMW's board member responsible for manufacturing, told Reuters. "We will build the X3 not only in Spartanburg, we will split it into South Africa and then to China, so we will have some flexibility to produce cars somewhere else,” he said.

“If something happens at the political level - which we don’t know yet - we are able to have a flexible response.”

The Trump administration has said it welcomes foreign investment and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, who spoke at an opening of a new Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> plant in South Carolina, said such projects showed that "America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow.”

The southern U.S. states owe much of their success to coastal port authorities and cities that have invested heavily to make their channels and docks fit for shipments to and from China and Mexico.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who has often clashed with Trump, said protectionism would undermine those accomplishments and hurt American workers.


"Negotiate a trade agreement with Europe, modernize NAFTA, don't tear it up," Graham told Reuters at the BMW factory. "We're going in the wrong direction. We need more trade agreements, not less."

Graham noted how low-cost competition from China and Mexico destroyed South Carolina's once thriving textile industry and how the state reinvented itself as a manufacturing hub, bringing the likes of BMW or French tire maker Michelin .

The now humming port city of Charleston has a similar story to tell. When a major navy base shut down in the 1990s wiping out 20,000 jobs, local officials worked to bring foreign manufacturers, which now employ around 10,000 in the three counties around the city and more is set to come.

Mercedes-Benz, part of Daimler AG , is adding 1,300 jobs so it can make its Sprinter van here rather than merely assemble it with imported parts, which also means more business for local suppliers.

Up the road, Volvo Car Group, part of Chinese conglomerate Geely, is due to open its first North American plant next year with a target workforce of 2,000.

Local development officials expect more jobs and investment to come, but worry that some steps discussed by the Trump administration could have a chilling effect.

Claire Gibbons, director of global marketing at the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, said the proposed new tariffs, tougher immigration rules and stricter reviews of foreign investment projects would amount to a "doomsday scenario" for the region.

"This is an education opportunity for us all, for the people making the decisions that don't understand the ramifications."

          Advertiser WPP says that some operations still affected by cyber attack   

LONDON (Reuters) - WPP, the world's biggest advertising agency, said on Thursday that some of its operations continued to be affected by a ransomware attack that went around the world earlier in the week, but that services were gradually being restored.

On Tuesday a major global cyber attack disrupted computers at a range of multinational firms, including WPP, Russia's biggest oil company and Ukrainian banks, with a virus similar to the ransomware that infected more than 300,000 computers last month.

"While the attack did not affect the entire Group, and many of our companies are fully functional, some continue to be disrupted," WPP said in a statement, adding that it took steps on Tuesday to ensure client data was protected.

"Steady progress is being made towards restoring services. However, in doing so, our emphasis is not only on speed but on safety, and on minimising the impact for our people, partners and clients."

          Global shipping feels fallout from Maersk cyber attack   

By Jonathan Saul

LONDON (Reuters) - Global shipping is still feeling the effects of a cyber attack that hit A.P. Moller-Maersk two days ago, showing the scale of the damage a computer virus can unleash on the technology dependent and inter-connected industry.

About 90 percent of world trade is transported by sea, with ships and ports acting as the arteries of the global economy. Ports increasingly rely on communications systems to keep operations running smoothly, and any IT glitches can create major disruptions for complex logistic supply chains.

The cyber attack was among the biggest-ever disruptions to hit global shipping. Several port terminals run by a Maersk division, including in the United States, India, Spain, the Netherlands, were still struggling to revert to normal operations on Thursday after experiencing massive disruptions.

South Florida Container Terminal, for example, said dry cargo could not be delivered and no container would be received. Anil Diggikar, chairman of JNPT port, near the Indian commercial hub of Mumbai, told Reuters that he did not know "when exactly the terminal will be running smoothly".

His uncertainty was echoed by Maersk itself, which told Reuters that a number of IT systems were still shut down and that it could not say when normal business operations would be resumed.

It said it was not able to comment on specific questions regarding the breach of its IT systems or the state of its cyber security as it had "all available hands focused on practical stuff and getting things back to normal".

The impact of the attack on the company has reverberated across the industry given its position as the world's biggest container shipping line and also operator of 76 ports via its APM Terminals division.

Container ships transport much of the world's consumer goods and food, while dry bulk ships haul commodities including coal and grain and tankers carry vital oil and gas supplies.

"As Maersk is about 18 percent of all container trade, can you imagine the panic this must be causing in the logistic chain of all those cargo owners all over the world?" said Khalid Hashim, managing director of Precious Shipping, one of Thailand's largest dry cargo ship owners.

"Right now none of them know where any of their cargoes (or)containers are. And this 'black hole' of lack of knowledge will continue till Maersk are able to bring back their systems on line."


The computer virus, which researchers are calling GoldenEye or Petya, began its spread on Tuesday in Ukraine and affected companies in dozens of countries.

Maersk said the attack had caused outages at its computer systems across the world.

In an example of the turmoil that ensued, the unloading of vessels at the group's Tacoma terminal was severely slowed on Tuesday and Wednesday, said Dean McGrath, president of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 23 there.

The terminal is a key supply line for the delivery of domestic goods such as milk and groceries and construction materials to Anchorage, Alaska.

"They went back to basics and did everything on paper," McGrath said.

Ong Choo Kiat, President of U-Ming Marine Transport, Taiwan's largest dry bulk ship owner, said the fact Maersk had been affected rang alarm bells for the whole shipping industry as the Danish company was regarded as a leader in IT technology.

"But they ended up one of the first few casualties. I therefore conclude that shipping is lacking behind the other industry in term of cyber security," he said.

"How long would it takes to catch up? I don't know. But recently all owners and operators are definitely more aware of the risk of cyber security and beginning to pay more attention to it."

In a leading transport survey by international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright published this week, 87 percent of respondents from the shipping industry believed cyber attacks would increase over the next five years - a level that was higher than counterparts in the aviation, rail and logistics industries.


Apart from the reliance on computer systems, ships themselves are increasingly exposed to interference through electronic navigation devices such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) and lack the backup systems airliners have to prevent crashes, according to cyber security experts.

There were no indications that GPS and other electronic navigation aids were affected by this week's attack, but security specialists say such systems are vulnerable to signal loss from deliberate jamming by hackers.

Last year, South Korea said hundreds of fishing vessels had returned early to port after its GPS signals were jammed by North Korea, which denied responsibility.

"The Maersk attack raises our awareness of the vulnerability of shipping and ports to technological failure," said Professor David Last, a previous president of Britain's Royal Institute of Navigation.

"When GPS fails, ships' captains lose their principal means of navigation and much of their communications and computer links. They have to slow down and miss port schedules," said Last, who is also a strategic advisor to the General Lighthouse Authorities of the UK and Ireland.

A number of countries including the UK and the United States are looking into deploying a radar based back up navigation system for ships called eLoran, but this will take time to develop.

David Nordell, head of strategy and policy for London-based think tank, the Centre for Strategic Cyberspace and Security Science, said the global shipping and port industries were vulnerable to cyber attack, because their operating technologies tend to be old.

"It's certainly possible to imagine that two container ships, or, even worse, oil or gas tankers, could be hacked into colliding, resulting in loss of life and cargo, and perhaps total loss of the vessels," Nordell said.

"Carried out in a strategically sensitive location such as the Malacca Straits or the Bosphorus, a collision like this could block shipping for enough time to cause serious dislocations to trade."


Cyber risks also pose challenges for insurance cover.

In a particularly secretive industry, information about the nature of cyber attacks is still scarce, which insurance and shipping officials say is an obstacle to mitigating the risk, which means there are gaps in insurance cover available.

"There has been a lot of non-reporting (of breaches) on ships, and we’re trying efforts where even if there could be anonymous reporting on a platform so we can start to get the information and the data," said Andrew Kinsey, senior marine consultant at insurer Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty.

There is also a gap in provision, because most existing cyber or hull insurance policies - which insure the ship itself - will not cover the risk of a navigation system being jammed or physical damage to the ship caused by a hacking attack.

"The industry is just waking up to its vulnerability," said Colin Gillespie, deputy director of loss prevention with ship insurer North.

"Perhaps it is time for insurers, reinsurers, ship operators and port operators to sit down together and consider these risks in detail. A collective response is needed - we are all under attack."

          Black Lives Should Matter Long Before They're Lost   
Black Lives Should Matter Long Before They're Lost It's easier to rally people with an injustice and a clear and appealing villain to point to than with prescriptive measures that are likely to help others avoid similar terrible outcomes. This is especially true when prescriptive measures involve advising people to take responsibility and to take a hard look at problems in a community that could be changed, in part, with more responsible behaviors. I've blogged previously about the problem of out-of-wedlock births and single motherhood in the black community. Jason L. Riley at the WSJ takes a different tack, but is still looking at the framework of society for a lot of black people with the question in the subhead of his piece -- "why not focus on bad schools and job-killing regulations?"
On a certain level, the decision by BLM activists to single out policing as a major obstacle to black advancement has always defied comprehension. Police shootings have fallen dramatically in recent decades. In New York City, for example, cops shot 314 people in 1971, 93 of them fatally. In 2015, New York police shot 23 people, killing eight. Which means that police shootings and fatalities in the nation's most populous city have declined by more than 90% over the past 4½ decades. A 2016 paper released by Harvard economist Roland Fryer examined the use of force by police since 2000 in some of the country's largest urban areas and found that "blacks are 23.8 percent less likely to be shot at by police relative to whites." In theory, there is no reason these activists couldn't play a more useful role in helping blacks overcome obstacles and take advantage of opportunities that were unavailable to previous generations. But that would mean abandoning nonsensical narratives that scapegoat law enforcement for high black crime rates and instead picking more substantive fights with fellow progressives. Why not side with the hundreds of thousands of black children nationwide who linger on waiting lists for charter schools that have a proven record of narrowing the achievement gap? Why side with progressive politicians who stunt the growth of charters out of deference to powerful teachers unions that oppose school choice? ...Of course, improving educational and employment prospects for the black underclass would lower black crime rates and thus go a long way toward reducing encounters with police, the goal that is so near and dear to the Black Lives Matter movement. It's a win-win, but first the activists have to decide whether the real goal is to help black people or to help themselves.
Important point there at the end -- one I think few people consider (thanks to how race issues are now the third rail of discussion and debate today). I sometimes get hundreds of retweets and shares of a blog post, but never those about race. At least a few of those must be at least a little interesting to people, but again, major no-go area. Oh, and on the job-killing regulations, consider how the government is trying to put moms who earn money caring for others' children in their homes out of business. As I blogged previously:
Mothers have taken care of other mothers' children throughout human history, usually without death or horrible things happening. There should be no reason why a mother cannot be the judge of whether the person she wishes to leave her child with is a safe bet, rather than having the state intervene. This regulation also keeps poor women who are mothers from having an income by taking in children and caring for them. Again, women have done this throughout human history. Yes, there's always a chance a child will be injured -- maybe in the parent's own home. But a child can still be injured in that *perfectly regulated* hothouse of government regulation. Regulation is mostly keeping the childcare "industry" safe from those who'd like to enter without going to college and jumping through 26 hoops.

          Take That "Cultural Appropriation" Ban All The Way   
Take That "Cultural Appropriation" Ban All The Way I've had this idea, vis a vis the college students and others screeching that Israel must be boycotted. I strongly suggest they take the first step and toss their iPhones (Israeli technology within) and refuse life-saving medical care that stems from Israeli researchers' discoveries. At Foundation for Economic Education, Pierre-Guy Veer applies this to those seeking to ban "cultural appropriation" -- which I like to think of as human cultural and intellectual progress. Imagine, "No, no, that fire thing is our shit -- don't be cooking your meat or we'll come club you with big rocks." Veer writes:
After years of complaining about such "problems" as a white chef cooking Mexican food or about "insensitive" Halloween costumes, it looks like Social Justice Warriors have finally prevailed. The United Nations will soon discuss, at the demand of indigenous groups, a ban on so-called cultural appropriation in order to "expand intellectual-property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines." It is rather ironic that those Natives would only want to ban "appropriation" of "their" culture. Why not push it to its logical conclusion and call for a ban on all cultural appropriation? This means that they would have to forgo every single technology that was imported from the rest of the world since 1492. In other words, they would have to abandon mathematics, writing, any form of metal casting, currency, all languages not originally from Pre-Columbus America, modern medicine, etc.
They would also not have beer. Any takers? Yoohoo? Veer traces what I think of as Canadian cheese fries:
Through contacts with other people from other cultures, any given cultural idea or tradition has become better. Take poutine for example. This meal composed of French fries, curd cheese and brown gravy has become a cultural symbol of Quebec. Some Quebecers are complaining that Canada is "appropriating" it as a national symbol and that there are poutine festivals from coast to coast. This is a rather strange way to celebrate the fact that what used to be seen as vulgar junk food is now seen as almost a delicacy with many variations - with sausage, chicken, hot sauce, etc. This "appropriation" should be celebrated because it shows that "poutine culture" is alive and well. Had it been kept within the border of Quebec, it might not even exist today since stagnation and lack of evolution is what kills ideas. Imagine for a moment that Céline Dion had decided not to start singing in English because she wanted to remain "Québécoise pure laine". Despite all her talents, she would have likely run out of authors to interpret and would unlikely have become one of the best-selling artists on the planet of all time.A slow death is what awaits Native culture if they have it their way And considering that narrower range of French-speaking culture, she might even have stopped singing. This slow death is what awaits Native culture if they have it their way. Keeping "non-Natives" from using traditions not typically associated with them means that only a handful would be exposed to it. Fewer people showing an interest means that their products and ideas will get less exposure and will, therefore, become a sociological or archaeological artifact rather than a living idea, limited to a few multicultural festivals.
