          Fairline announces US premiere of new Squadron 53 at Palm Beach International Boat Show   


Alongside the US debut of the Squadron 53, which was launched in Europe at Boot Dusseldorf at the end of January, Fairline will showcase its limited edition 50th anniversary commemorative book together with an immersive virtual reality experience bringing to life its highly anticipated Targa 63GTO.

Renowned superyacht designer, Alberto Mancini, has added his design expertise to Fairline’s new Squadron 53. The boat is based on the existing 53ft hull but features a new design from the deck upwards courtesy of Mancini, showcasing the future direction of Fairline’s exterior styling.

Mancini’s design has resulted in a spacious main deck with a flat floor from the cockpit to the lower helm, which in turn ensures a flat ceiling in the master cabin offering a generous 6ft 4in headroom at the foot of the large double bed, adding to the overall sense of space in this expansive 55ft 6in (16.92m)-long cruiser. The clever layout configurations provide owners with complete flexibility, including three or four cabins and multiple galley arrangements including the main deck, forward or aft locations or below deck, as well as the new addition of foredeck seating.

Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated craftsmen in Oundle, England, the new Squadron 53 offers luxury boaters total command and control thanks to its

striking swept flybridge, whilst exuding style and offering great entertaining spaces onboard. Fairline’s approach, from superior engineering and multiple layout options, to small details that delight, makes the Squadron 53 the perfect choice for those who want their yacht their way.

Andrew Pope, Head of Design at Fairline, says, “Owners will feel in total command and control on the fantastic flybridge of the new Fairline Squadron 53, a yacht that offers excellent sea-keeping in all conditions. At the same time, the space, style and sumptuousness of this luxury cruiser means that guests will also have the ride of their lives. The Squadron 53 is the first Fairline yacht to have touches of Italian design and features subtle Mancini influences, which have evolved Fairline’s time-proven design DNA to create a
model that perfectly blends beauty, form and function. With the Squadron 53, owners receive unrivalled flexibility in layout and complete comfort and luxury in its construction and features.”

See the US premiere of Fairline’s Squadron 53 at Palm Beach International Boat Show from Thursday 23 March.

          Fairline announces all-new Targa 43 Open   


The new Targa 43 Open is the latest boat designed from a blank sheet of paper by celebrated superyacht designer, Alberto Mancini, for Fairline Yachts. The hugely successful partnership between the Italian designer and British boatyard, which began with the Targa 63 GTO, has created an instantly recognisable sleek hull shape with effortless styling, showcasing the future direction for Fairline Yachts.

Fairline’s new Targa 43 Open, of which ten models were sold on the first day of London Boat Show 2017, will have the same innovative, versatile, light, bright and achingly stylish feel of the Targa 63 GTO. The luxurious sports cruiser will feature a choice of either twin Volvo Penta IPS 500 or IPS 600, which is expected to achieve a minimum fully-loaded speed of 34 knots.

Head of Design at Fairline Yachts, Andrew Pope, comments, “The Targa 43 was a phenomenally popular boat when originally launched in the late 1990s and we are confident this all-new model for the 21st century will be a worthy successor. The two cabin cruiser will feature an exciting new shape, a light and airy feel and luxurious hand-crafted details, whilst retaining Fairline’s core design DNA and, of course, the robust seakeeping we are known for. We can’t wait for you to meet her in Spring 2018.”

          Fairline announces worldwide premiere of new Squadron 53 at Boot Düsseldorf 2017   


The launch of the Squadron 53 will celebrate the British brand’s return to the Düsseldorf-based show after a five year absence, and follows this year’s hugely successful unveilings of the Squadron 65 Hardtop at Cannes Yachting Festival, and the Targa 53 OPEN at Southampton International Boat Show.

Renowned superyacht designer, Alberto Mancini, has added his design expertise to this new Squadron. The boat is based on Fairline’s existing 53ft hull but features a new design from the deck upwards courtesy of Mancini, showcasing the future direction of Fairline’s exterior styling.

Targa 48 OPEN

Fairline’s ever popular Targa 48 OPEN will also be on show alongside the new addition to the Squadron range.

The Targa 48 OPEN is one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water. A beautifully appointed two or three cabin, double en-suite model, the Targa 48 OPEN embraces the design trend of spacious sociable areas – both inside and out. The model also features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for a jet tender and the option of a submersible platform. The Targa 48 OPEN offers exceptional performance and manoeuvrability thanks to its Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control – keep your eyes peeled as 2017 sees the introduction of the Volvo IPS700.

Prices start at £441,300 (ex. VAT).

See the world premiere of Fairline’s Squadron 53 at Boot Düsseldorf at 12:00pm on Saturday 21 January 2017 - on the Fairline booth, Hall 6/D21 - and the US premiere at Miami Boat Show, on 16 February 2017.

          Fairline launches the Targa 53 GT for boat owners who refuse to compromise   


Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated British craftsmen, the Targa 53 GT sets a new standard in choice, personalisation and buyer satisfaction, which has never before been properly recognised or met by boat builders. There will be no such thing as an ‘off the shelf’ model with the Targa 53 GT, allowing customers to design and purchase something that is truly their boat.

Recognised for nearly 50 years as guardians of British ingenuity and engineering of the ‘Boater’s Boat,’ Fairline has created the Targa 53 GT to deliver a ‘no compromise’ solution to the discerning buyer. Fairline has attended to every small detail – from the unrivalled performance, proven sea-keeping, and the exceptional quality of every aspect of on board space, facilities and features. The Targa 53 GT redefines the 50 foot boating experience, providing outstanding quality in design and performance for the uncompromising end-user.

Design Director at Fairline, Andrew Pope, comments, “The Targa 53 GT represents a dramatic step forward in motorboat design, using the Fairline design DNA to create a model that perfectly blends form and function. The use of smart design principles throughout the boat eliminates the owner’s need to compromise. We want our customers to regret nothing and when choosing the Targa 53 GT, the owner will receive unrivalled flexibility in layout and complete confidence in its construction and features.”

Exterior lines reflect dynamic performance

The Targa 53 GT is immediately distinctive thanks to its exterior styling and shows an evolution from the time proven Targa lineage, incorporating the distinctive deck window profile with signature Fairline spear. Continuing the Fairline tradition of timeless design, the Targa 53 GT incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the new model’s dynamic character. The boat’s classic swept stern shape integrates the hull lines, creating a functional yet attractive transom that gives the boat a dynamic look, even when at rest.

Fairline takes a unique approach to constructing its boats with four separate mouldings coming together to create a monocoque construction. This procedure, along with Fairline’s resin infusion process, adds structural strength and rigidity while reducing weight, noise and vibration.

Sleek design features have been used to create an “in and out” experience, including large three piece patio doors that span the full width of the upper deck. The large 'L shaped' cockpit seating boasts a substantial three person sun pad utilising a moveable backrest, giving 'open' style exterior space whilst still being able to close the doors on any inclement weather. The Targa 53 GT has a single level floor from the cockpit to saloon, with one step up to the companionway to maximise the feeling of space.

The new model also features a glazed retractable hardtop, a key advantage of which is the pneumatic seal, providing a waterproof seal and seamless one touch movement from closed to open. The boat’s glazed feature windows in the saloon allow light to flood in and provide a stunning 360 degree panoramic experience, with an uninterrupted view. There is an option for a submersible bathing platform, with variable height hydraulic mechanism and a 500kg capacity. The platform holds an integrated Armstrong ladder for those wanting to swim, which conveniently swings and locks away when not in use.

Interior elegance and flexibility

During the development of the Targa 53 GT, emphasis was placed on creating the most flexible Fairline layout to date, providing customers with the chance to create their perfect boat, which is hand built to their specific requirements. This includes the choice of galley up or galley down, providing the customer with class-leading flexibility in layout and widening the boat’s appeal to meet the demands of a global market. 

Designed to be a sociable boat inside and out, the Targa 53 GT combines large cockpit seating and sunbathing areas, with interior saloon seating to provide a seamless flow of entertaining and relaxation space. A stone inlayed wooden high/low dining table with folding leaves can convert from dining to coffee table, allowing the main saloon seating to serve as a dining or relaxation area. A stunning feature drinks unit stands next to the starboard sofa and a 40 inch rise and fall flat screen television as standard.
Companion seating opposite the twin helm adds to the boat’s sociable and inclusive experience. The helm station is designed to ensure the best visibility for the driver due to a central helm position, and the boat is equipped with the latest Garmin navigational technology, renowned for its reliability, technical innovation and ease of use. 

An industry first for this size of boat is the layout of the three luxuriously appointed cabins, providing the best level of comfortable and spacious accommodation for everyone on board. 

The full beam mid-ship master cabin boasts a king size bed, feature headboard, mood lighting and large panoramic windows. The highest quality interior materials are used throughout, including stone worktops and leather panelled drawers and bed surround. A flush mounted 32 inch television, along with a standalone vanity unit with illuminated mirror are just a couple of examples of the luxurious touches in the master cabin. The master ensuite features the option of marble worktops throughout – a first for Fairline – and large windows to light the spacious bathroom.

In addition to the stunning master cabin, there is a VIP forward double cabin, with the option to convert the double to a scissor berth and glazing overhead with integrated blinds. A versatile extra cabin is to port, with side by side twin beds. Often overlooked, the twin cabin features the same attention to detail as the other accommodation, with no need for guests to sleep in bunk beds and design touches including a full length mirror. For crewed boats, Fairline offers an optional spacious crew cabin.

The galley is visually open to the upper deck, ensuring those enjoying the ambience below decks are always connected to other guests. Owners can choose from three beautiful stone worktop options and the galley’s contemporary yet practical features include a full height fridge freezer, induction hobs and soft close drawers. Storage options in the galley include large eyeline lockers above the worktop and an under floor larder. Customers opting for the 'galley up' option will gain an additional day head and flexible utility room in place of the galley.
Stunning design details run throughout the boat including feature piping and stitching on the sofas and leather bound and stitched handrails. Owners can select options for sofa coverings, fabric and leather from four sumptuous interior schemes based on popular boating destinations – Capri, St Tropez, Amalfi and the Hamptons.

Technical details and engine options

Offering excellent sea-keeping in all conditions, the Targa 53 GT is a true “boater’s boat” and offers a choice of two shaft driven engine options from Volvo. Up to 725bhp is available through shaft drives, which better suits the handling and performance characteristics of a 50ft+ boat.

The boat is designed to reach a minimum of 30 knots in a fully loaded state, including fuel, water, tender and crew and boasts high capacity fuel tanks for longer range, safer cruising.
Every feature has been carefully planned to enhance the on board experience of the Targa 53 GT, including gyro stabilisation as a factory fitted option, a 45% increase in air conditioning output, 35% increase in exterior glazing, and 70% increase in cockpit seating and sunbed areas.
Prices start from £649,000 excluding VAT, with the 2x Volvo Penta D11-675 EVC engine option.

Douglas Culverwell, Sales and Marketing Director, adds, “The Targa 53 GT gives an idea of the shape of things to come, not just for Fairline but for the whole market. This new model refuses to be categorised with production line boats and as the order books are already filling up, we welcome the imminent boat show season.

“The Targa 53 GT is an opportunity for our customers to purchase what suits their individual boating needs when it comes to layout and functionality. With a boat where attention to detail, both in engineering and aesthetics, is key.”

          Heart Roasters   
Is it possible to be too serious about coffee?  The first time I visited this roastery and cafe located at 2211 East Burnside, I observed one of the staff doing a pour-over.  She had a look on her face not unlike a lab technician extracting a newly discovered cancer cure from a DNA helix.  She spent what seemed like an eternity oh-so-slowly pouring hot water over perfectly ground and measured coffee.  When the pour-over was finished, she deeply inhaled the resulting coffee's aroma.  Then she walked away and came back a minute later to once again inhale with zen-like focus.  Another minute passed, and she inhaled again.  I never saw her take a drink.  Maybe she never did.

All that seriousness apparently pays off, because Heart makes really good coffee.  And the space they offer for drinking it will appeal to those who favor a clean retro-modern aesthetic.  It's a bit hard to describe, but their custom colored (and gorgeous) espresso machine offers some clues:

The baristas take their time getting the best out of this machine, which features gauges and paddles for each group to precisely control pressure and water flow.

Not all of the machines make coffee at Heart.  They also have a 1970's stereo with real speakers playing interesting music at listening (rather than background) volume.  There's even a turntable, but it seems to be used mostly as a place to rest iPods.
If you order an espresso, you will have your choice of a couple single origin beans.  The Kenyan I had on a recent visit was deep and raisiny.  A double shot is $3, which seems at the north end of reasonable, and looks something like this:

It will be delicious, and the perfect thing to sweep the cobwebs from a foggy brain on a rainy afternoon.

          From Cyborgs to Hacktivists: Postfeminist Disobedience and Virtual Communities   
Carolyn Guertin

For many the term postfeminist might call to mind the vanilla pleasures of metrosexuality, webcams, online soaps, and blog culture, but, for me, a 40-something cyberfeminist scholar, curator and some time activist, the politically-minded feminist texts I work with are in fact dyed-in-the-wool postfeminist ones that occupy a different place on the postfeminism continuum from those more loudly-lauded, lighter confections. Usually given a bad rap by the media, postfeminism has been accused of being antifeminist, whereas it is instead what the next wave of second wave feminism has become. Its name is not a marker or movement that intends to imply that feminism is dead and gone, any more than Donna Haraway’s “postgender” and N. Katherine Hayles’ “posthuman” mean the death of those old shoes. As Ann Brooks puts it in Postfeminisms, “the concept of `post’ implies a process of ongoing transformation and change” (1). Postfeminism is that indicator that shows us the organism formerly known as feminism has grown into something far more complex than its liberal origins would lead us to expect.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, second wave feminism, which had spoken predominantly from and to a position of white middle class privilege, began to fracture to include a broader chorus of voices, classes, and races. Postfeminism or, more exactly, postfeminisms have expanded to include a multitude of situated perspectives within the context of postmodern thinking, and have swelled to embrace the new emphasis on what Michèle Barrett identified in 1992 (the year that the World Wide Web was born) as “fluidity and contingency” - features that are the trademark stock in trade of the cyber age. Barrett believed feminism’s paradigm shift to be the result of a new interest in culture that in turn gave rise to a whole new collectivity of subjectivities. It is no accident that this shift coincided with the advent of a technology that foregrounded networked communications. It was only a few years earlier, in the fledgling days of the personal computer back when the Internet was still a vehicle predominantly for hackers and technogeeks, that Haraway first articulated a politics of connectivity for women in the context of these new technologies. In her “Cyborg Manifesto” Haraway’s half-woman, half-machine revels in the confusion of body boundaries and fractures all sense of an originary unity or simplex gender through embracing the cyborg as a model: a being who revels in discursivity, multiplicity, hybridity, and perversity. As the Web has evolved, it has become something of a gene pool for creative explorations of sexualities, subjectivities and identities - and has proved to be as liberating for men as for women in that regard. Cyberfeminist scholar Sadie Plant even argues for the feminizing influence of technology in a connected age. Without a doubt, though, this new technology’s most important role has been that of facilitating communication.

 “cyberfeminism is post-feminist” (76) Cyberfeminism was born at a particular moment in time, 1992, simultaneously at three different points on the globe. In Canada, Nancy Paterson, a celebrated high tech installation artist, penned an article called “Cyberfeminism” for Stacy Horn’s Echo Gopher server. In Australia, VNS Matrix (Josephine Starrs, Julianne Pierce, Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt) coined the term to label their radical feminist acts and their blatantly viral agenda: to insert women, bodily fluids, and political consciousness into electronic spaces. That same year, British cultural theorist Sadie Plant chose the same term to describe her recipe for defining the feminizing influence of technology on western society and its inhabitants.

-Judy Wajcman

Connectivity has been called the genius of feminism by theorist Robin Morgan (53), and this genius is being realized in electronic spaces and texts in more complex ways than in any other medium to date. Connectivity is the poster child of the postfeminist universe, which is why the first cyberfeminist collective, VNS Matrix, chose the image of the matrix - the cosmic womb - as its symbol The Australian collective VNS Matrix announced its inception with a rallying cry called the “Cyberfeminist Manifesto”:
We are the modern cunt
positive anti-reason
unbounded unleashed unforgiving
we see art with our cunt we make art with our cunt
we believe in jouissance madness holiness and poetry
we are the virus of the new world disorder
rupturing the symbolic from within
saboteurs of big daddy mainframe
the clitoris is a direct line to the matrix
terminators of the moral code
mercenaries of slime
go down on the altar of abjection
sucking the visceral temple we speak in tongues
infiltrating disrupting disseminating
corrupting the discourse/we are the future cunt
Its separatist nature bears a resemblance to philosophies put forward by hackers.
. Another cyberfeminist collective, the Old Boys’ Network, defined its local chapters as “nodes” that “collide, disintegrate, regenerate, engage, disembody, reform, collapse, renew, abandon, revise, revitalize, and expand” (OBN FAQ 7). These structural and mechanical concerns are not accidental. Postfeminisms do not inhabit a network; they are the network of feminist discourse in virtual space and they are at their best when they are helping to forge communities of practice. In its incarnation most familiar to ebr ‘s readers, the electronic, hyperlinked text is both a narratological structure and the means of navigation in space and time. In the webbed space of hyperlinked fiction, the pregnant gaps between the nodes are at least as important as the textual nodes themselves. The nodes exist in conjunction with the dynamic space of the journey and cannot be discussed in isolation. So with the newest literary forms of the postfeminist universe. They cannot be separated from the communities and material praxes that they both engender and nurture on and off the Web.

In the cyberfeminist corner of the postfeminist universe, girl gamers such as Brenda Laurel and Mary Flanagan immediately spring to mind; so too do techno-performers such as Laurie Anderson and Coco Fusco, and new media artists such as Mez or Olia Lialina, but the most important and distinctive Web-native postfeminist form is, I would argue, hacktivism. The term was first coined in 1998 The rallying cry of hackers has long been “information wants to be free.” to describe an emerging hybrid form that united the best attributes of peaceful social protest - activism - and tech-savvy online civil disobedience - hackerism The term “hacktivism” has been attributed to a Toronto-based hacker who goes by the handle of Oxblood Ruffin.. It is a solution-oriented form of political action that inserts bodies and media-based dissent into real time material concerns. It should not be confused with its adolescent and illegal cousins, cractivism - code cracking, vandalism, data blockades (DDos) and the loss of digital data - or cyberterrorism - acts and agents of wanton destruction including worms and viruses. One of its trademark features is that the Web cannot contain hacktivism’s flows, allowing it to spill out into the world in the form of political protest at WTO and G8 events, for example, and in books, pamphlets, net.art, and performance art.

Hacktivism as a praxis was born in December 1997 when Critical Art Ensemble Critical Art Ensemble has been very much in the news lately since one of its members, Steve Kurtz, a professor in the Department of Art at SUNY Buffalo, was arrested on 12 May 2004 and charged with bioterrorism under the American Anti-Terrorism Act. These trumped up and widely protested charges have resulted in the FBI appropriating CAE’s materials and equipment used for testing for the presence of genetically- modified DNA - the tools CAE uses in creating their political art. member and software engineer Carmin Karasic was so appalled by the events of the Acteal Massacre - 45 Zapatistas were murdered at the hands of the Mexican government - that she set out to create a Web interface that would perform political protest as an aesthetic act. Three other Critical Art Ensemble members joined her in forming a new collective they named the Electronic Disturbance Theatre. (The group’s name is drawn from the concept of civil disobedience first proposed by Henry David Thoreau.) Their electronic civil disobedience engine is named FloodNet; funded by RTMark and launched in September 1998, it is Karasic’s brainchild in her war against injustice. Filling the browser page with the names of the dead, this activism tool “would access the page for Mexico’s President Zedillo seeking bogus addresses, so the browser would return messages like “human_rights not found on this server” (Cassell). Unlike the attacks launched by cracktivists, no damage is done by this software agent. When the Electronic Disturbance Theatre alerts its “online activists to `commence flooding!’” they visit EDT’s website and click on FloodNet’s icon (Harmon). The software then directs their browser to the target, and cues the same page to load over and over again.

As a postfeminist work, it is no accident that FloodNet must function as a community-based performance:

FloodNet’s action only drew its validity from the number of people showing support. “It was only actualized through thousands and thousands of participants,” she remembers. “It was meaningless without the masses.” Popular support transforms a random act of vandalism into a show of presence, Karasic argues. “This is an important difference between the single hacker/hacktivist who takes down a server with a single script” (qtd. in Cassell).

Similar to the disruptive aestheticization of codework by the Dutch trio jodi.org, Karasic sees her collectivity interface as something more closely akin to “conceptual art” than to cyberterrorism (Harmon). No one and no data are harmed in these `attacks,’ but websites are effectively shut down while the protest is being transmitted.

Advancing human rights through the electronic media is also the purview of another collective, a cyberfeminist one called subRosa. It is currently comprised of Laleh Mehran, Hyla Willis, Steffi Domike, Lucia Sommer, and Faith Wilding. It was also formed in the fall of 1998 - around the same time that Karasic was vowing to respond to Mexican excesses with FloodNet. Donna Haraway was the first to identify science as one of the most insidious cultural forms women needed to address to regain control of their bodies; subRosa follows in that tradition. subRosa uses its art to critique “the relationships between digital technologies, biotechnologies and women’s bodies/lives/work” (Griffis). The goal of these hacktivists, akin to the Electronic Disturbance Theatre’s, is the creation of communities, what they call “female affiliations that respect difference and create productive projects in solidarity with others who are working on similar ones” (Griffis).

Embracing bell hooks’ definition of feminism as that which seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination (qtd in Griffis), subRosa undertakes projects of activism and public education on topics as wide-ranging as eugenics, Frankenfoods, stem cell and cloning research, and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Seeing their purpose as a pedagogical one, they launch inclusive electronic campaigns, publish pamphlets and books, and travel out into (particularly third world) communities to perform their topical art. These are what they call resistant projects, tactical cyberfeminist ones, and situational information theatre: “As cyberfeminists and artists we are using the framework of participatory performance as an information theatre of pedagogical art that models various tactics for intervening and commenting on the seductive representations of the flesh machine” (subRosa). One of the keys to their successful distribution of information is their willingness to mix media and cross boundaries, producing their art and materials in a plethora of formats contextually situated for their audiences. Like FloodNet’s participatory form, subRosa’s mode of information distribution is reproducible, for it argues “[i]n the digital age, resistant cultural producers can embrace recombinance for subversive ends” (subRosa).

All of this may seem somewhat removed from the electronic book and literary traditions, but when postfeminisms meet the new media they encourage these kinds of pleasures in the confusion of boundaries between bodies, texts, technologies, politics, and cultures. In a hyperlinked age when the only true path through a text is a personal journey, the many roads of postfeminism show that comminglings of radical politics and material concerns are alive and well in both the virtual and real worlds. How effective these hacktivist actions are is difficult to measure, but they are remarkable as tools for global mobilization and peaceful protest. It is clear that they are very effective at allowing women’s voices to be heard.

Je preto dosť prekvapivé, že drvá väčšina planét, ktoré boli objavené v okolí červených trpaslíkov, sa napriek tomu nachádza v "horúcej zóne", s priemernými teplotami okolo 400 C.

          La Riera   

Rierencs i rierenques, estem a poques hores del final de la vuitena i darrera temporada d’aquesta sèrie familiar tant trepidant i rica en trames que entrellacen emocions i sentiments al voltant de la família Guitart i el seu restaurant Can Riera.

Creieu que serà un capítol extrem? Ja esteu preparats?

Qui va matar a en Claudi? Es farà justícia amb l’assassinat de la Candela? I en Bruno? L’Avellaneda no pot sortir indemne i la Lidia tampoc.

S’arribarà a inaugurar l’hotel de la fonda? Com acabaran els cors dels nostres protagonistes desprès d’aquesta temporada tan emocionant?

Si heu respost que si us convidem a recordar el llibre La Riera. Orígens i secrets de la família. Les receptes del restaurant de la mà de Cossetània Edicions.

Aquest llibre és imprescindible per a seguidors d’aquesta sèrie amenitzadora de migdies. 

El primer apartat i més apreciat per mi, és Orígens i secrets de la família on se’ns explica l’evolució del restaurant i la família Guitart des de el 1916 quan la Mercè Massaguer, avia de la nostra Mercè, va conèixer el seu marit, en Quimet Riera.

Amb l’ajuda de l’arbre genealògic de la família ens passegem per Sant Climent a través de cinc generacions, descobrim com a través d’herències el restaurant va anar passant de mans i creixent fins esdevenir un dels més destacats de la comarca. 

Cal tenir en compte que el llibre és de l’any 2010 i es correspon a finals de la primera temporada doncs se’ns presenten els besnéts d’en Quimet d’una manera que ara no és. Per començar en Claudi (el meu ídol, ho havia de dir) feliç i acaramel·lat amb la jove i glamourosa Lídia Almeda; l’Ernest al costat de la Sònia i veient com l’Ariadna tot just entra a l’adolescència; el Lluís amb la Carol i el Sergi, el nostre nen, sense parella, sense fills i com al gran digne successor del llegat gastronòmic familiar.

Fa gracia veure com la Núria Furió ens transporta al passat, a allò que ha desembocat en el que és ara Can Riera. Qui sospitaria que al 2013 hauríem d’incloure assassinats, divorcis, un nou restaurant a Madrid, el grup Batea, els cursos de cuina de la Maribel, restaurants a la competència i un munt d’embolics a la direcció? 

Emmarcat amb un treball fotogràfic que il·lustra a la perfecció la trama i la importància de la taula i el menjar en aquesta família. Gairebé cada escena transcendental ha passat al voltant d’un bon àpat. Si, no menciono la piscina perquè no vull ferir sensibilitats.

El segon apartat és Les receptes del restaurant on se’ns presenten una selecció de primers, peix, carn i postres que ben bé podrien ser del restaurant familiar.

Cuina catalana tradicional explicada pas a pas que faran les delícies de la família. 

Us recomano que us apropeu a alguna llibreria i fiqueu el nas en aquest llibre, no us en penedireu doncs tots intuïm el que passava amb la Mercè i la seva germana i qui van ser els fundadors del restaurant però l’autora li dona el toc que nosaltres no li sabem donar, ho explica com si fos un “previously” de les sèries americanes, un relat que ens obre la finestra del passat sense perdre de vista la coherència amb la línia de la trama i l’evolució d’aquesta al llarg de les temporades.

Ja sabeu, teniu deures d’estiu, recuperem l’essència de tan magnífica sèrie tot investigant d’on venen els nostres amics de la família Guitart.

          Inside Fargo, America's Most Undervalued Tech Hub   
By Fortune
Editor's Note: Congratulations to the many Fargo-area businesses mentioned in this article. Many of them have participate in ND Commerce programs such as Innovate ND, Centers of Excellence and Centers of Research Excellence, Research ND and the North Dakota Development Fund.

It gets 50 inches of snow a year and is so cold that its bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But its homegrown tech community is on fire.

The morning of Nov. 12, 2014 was well below freezing in Fargo, the largest city in North Dakota. By the time Shawn Muehler took the stage before an audience of 150, the theater, located just a few blocks west of the Red River, had warmed up. Entrepreneurs, students, professors and business leaders shuffled down the aisles with free cups of coffee. For the audience, it was time for Fargo’s 1 Million Cups, a robust startup community-building initiative from the Kaufman Foundation that’s a kind of church for entrepreneurs. For Muehler, it was time to talk about drones.

Standing on stage with one of his drones, Muehler—a Fargo native, Air Force officer, and seasoned pilot—had six minutes to present his business idea, the result of several months of white-board calculating, late-night brainstorming, and endless code tinkering. He described the collision risks found in an airspace that is increasingly crowded with aircraft and drones. The software that he and his small team of pilots, developers, and engineers wanted to build, he explained, would create a safety net for drone pilots, enabling them to track their unmanned vehicles in real time using existing cellular networks.

Muehler’s presentation was followed by vigorous applause and a round of questions. As is tradition at 1 Million Cups, the entrepreneur was asked one final query: “How can we as a community help you succeed?” And so he answered. Within five days, Muehler tells Fortune, he had five funding opportunities from people in the community. The ensuing $500,000 seed investment allowed him to double his workforce and move to a larger office downtown.

Last spring the company, now called Botlink, launched the beta version of its drone-tracking application, which it says is the world’s first commercially available drone safety and control platform. In June, Botlink announced a joint venture with Fargo’s power management company, Packet Digital, to raise $15 million on the same day that it co-hosted Fargo’s inaugural Drone Focus Conference. By this fall, the company had launched its first product: a piece of data-processing hardware that’s compatible with every drone on the market.

When I visited the Botlink office in September, the staff had just returned from a drone conference in Las Vegas where they’d run out of brochures the first day and flummoxed some West Coast startups who didn’t realize they had competitors in Fargo. Half-empty containers of drones now littered the floor around the reception desk, making the office look like the home of a robot family unpacking from a long trip. In the workshop down the hall, a plane with a 14-foot wingspan sat on a desk, and Muehler, wearing a Batman t-shirt, was one of the first to tell me what makes Fargo special.

Well before I arrived in Fargo, I’d heard about Silicon Prairie—the Heartland’s version of Silicon Valley—with noteworthy startup activity in larger cities like Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City. I knew Fargo was on the eastern border of the state, far from the oil activity in the Bakken region. I’d read that it’s home to the country’s third-largest Microsoft  MSFT 0.65% campus and nearly 30,000 college students. The average age of Fargo residents is 31. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. I had already grasped enough about this city of 105,000 to easily dismiss the Siberia-esque picture painted in the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name. I envisioned a burst of Technicolor popping from a vast expanse of plains.

The tech scene that I visited in September was markedly different from the one I had first heard about in 2013. Two years ago Emerging Prairie, a startup news and events organization, was beginning to establish itself; today it co-organizes wildly popular events such as 1 Million Cups, TEDxFargo, and a monthly gathering called Startup Drinks. Thanks to local startup Myriad Mobile, which spun out of a student-run incubator, Fargo has begun hosting the annual Midwest Mobile Summit. A nonprofit has started offering coding classes for women. Meetups have launched for hackers, gamers, developers, geeks, and even bitcoin enthusiasts.

Fargo companies are also beginning to appear in the national spotlight. Intelligent InSites, which provides tracking real-time operational intelligence for the healthcare industry, is experiencing explosive growth. So is Appareo Systems, a leader in electronic and computer products for the aerospace and defense industries. A handful of gaming companies have surfaced in the area; one is developing a virtual reality horror game and another is building a woodland survival adventure game called On My Ownfor Xbox One. A team from North Dakota State University has engineered an affordable, 3D-printed prosthetic arm. Two locals have started a funeral webcasting service. Another startup has developed an autonomous tractor.

With all of this activity, how does a place like Fargo end up as one of the most undervalued, overlooked tech communities in the United States? That’s why I wanted to meet Greg Tehven, the executive director and co-founder of Emerging Prairie and affectionately known as Fargo’s ambassador, when I visited the city this fall. On a warm Sunday afternoon, I found him at a community lunch for new Americans, set up for several hundred on a basketball court on the west side of town. Characteristic of the region, the wind blew like it was trying to prove something; strong guests sent naan cartwheeling across curry vegetables and off paper plates. Young Bhutanese girls danced barefoot on the asphalt in sequined dresses the color of Gerber daisies.

Tehven is a soft-spoken, dyed-in-the-wool millennial, a fifth-generation Fargoian who grew up on a farm and came of age during the Buffalo Commons era, when people debated a proposal to let buffalo take over the Great Plains. Tehven left Fargo for college, wandered around, felt unfulfilled and returned, determined to build the type of community he wanted to call home. Today, he travels around the country speaking about community-building and teaches social entrepreneurship in India.

“Barriers are being eliminated to contribute to the community here,” he told me. “People who have moved away know they can come back here and do things quickly.” He talked about a radically inclusive culture that has an extraordinary speed of trust. In economic terms, what’s happening in Fargo is that a magnetic downtown is attracting and retaining talent. But Tehven contends that it’s really about love.

“It’s about increasing the amount of love in our community,” he said, noting that it’s hard to be successful on your own. “There’s a co-dependence here.” He said people need each other, whether it’s for harvesting crops or recovering from a flood. If emotional support is absent, innovation will falter.

The next morning, I met Tehven at Prairie Den, a new coworking space in the center of town, above a Chinese restaurant called King House Buffet. Until this summer, it was run by Minneapolis-based CoCo, but they didn’t last a year, Tehven said, because they didn’t embrace the philosophy of giving before getting. Shortly after they left, the space was resurrected as the Den, a funky, art-filled workspace that’s home to Emerging Prairie and a couple start-ups. Hearing the story of this rebirth made me think of the new growth that quickly emerges in forests after controlled burns.

One of the reasons Emerging Prairie was created was to act as a publicity machine for locals who think it’s uncouth to celebrate one’s own achievements. The organization, which is in the process of becoming a nonprofit, now has a staff of four, including a writer, Marisa Jackels, who produces daily stories about the startup scene. She never runs out of content. Tehven has each new staff member read Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City by Foundry Group co-founder Brad Feld.

If Fargo had to limit itself to a single story, it would be that of Great Plains Software, a fledgling startup built by North Dakotan Doug Burgum over nearly two decades and acquired by Microsoft in 2001 for $1.1 billion. Today, Microsoft is located on the south side of town and has grown to four buildings with more than 1,500 employees—the company’s third-largest campus in North America.

Burgum went on to found Kilbourne Group, a downtown redevelopment company, and co-found Arthur Ventures, a venture capital group that’s investing in software companies out of a $45 million fund raised in 2013. He’s as close to a godfather as the humble Fargo community will allow. Incidentally, it wasn’t until well after a conversation with a community leader named Joe—who started a downtown farmer’s market, worked on Uber-friendly legislation and is now building a giant mobile sauna—that I found out he was Burgum’s son.

Burgum said Great Plains employees focused on service and had a lot of humility and gratitude; he sees that today in the dozens of startups that employ Great Plains alumni. Like others, he told me that the region’s land and history play a role in today’s technology growth.

“Every farmer and rancher is an entrepreneur and tinkerer and inventor,” he said, “and there’s some of that DNA here. You wouldn’t have ended up here if you weren’t a risk-taker—moving your family from Sweden to a new land with no electricity and very little infrastructure.”

Shane Waslaski, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, also grew up in the state and said the strong tech community in Fargo can be attributed to a pioneering spirit and an “altruistic desire to nourish each other.” Tenaciousness and perseverance are rooted in the heritage, he said.

From Prairie Den, Tehven and I walked around downtown, popping into offices and meetings unannounced and intercepting folks on Broadway and Roberts Street—as was his plan. I was reminded of the familiarity and ease with which students can have impromptu and rich conversations while walking across a college quad. Time and again, talking to Muehler and other entrepreneurs, I heard stories that made it easy to root for the underdog that is Fargo. I found a level of enthusiasm typically reserved for young political candidates offering hope and promising change. More than once, I saw someone get choked up talking about the place they call home.

We ran into Drew Spooner, a baby-faced serial entrepreneur who started the Hammock Initiative and speaks deadpan about the health benefits of swaying. He now has sponsors and a national following. Then we ran into the woman behind Unglued, a shop selling locally made crafts; and one of the brewers behind Fargo Brewing Company, which makes Wood Chipper India Pale Ale. Much of the day, Tehven, wearing jeans and flannel, walked around with a cup of coffee in his hand. He told me there’s a sense in Fargo that if you talk about something enough, it will become real—whether it’s a hammocking craze or a spontaneous tailgate party.

Among the challenges in a town with so much startup activity is making sure the entrepreneurs have enough support to get over the first-generation hump and maintain momentum even when the initial spotlight fades.

“In cities like San Francisco, Boston, New York, there’s a lot of experience and expertise,” said Miguel Danielson, another Emerging Prairie co-founder. “That’s great for entrepreneurs because it’s scary to do alone. So a lot of what we do at Emerging Prairie is try to bring these folks together.” He lovingly describes Fargo—remote, hundreds of miles from Minneapolis and Winnipeg—as a Gilligan’s Island of sorts. “You’re stuck with the folks you’ve got in the immediate vicinity, so you better be nice to them,” he said, adding that in a small place, he feels especially blessed when he finds others with common interests.

Danielson grew up in Fargo and left for college and Harvard Law School. If it weren’t for the startup culture—which is helping Midwestern communities fight brain drain–he may never have returned. After practicing in Cambridge for several years, he opened Danielson Legal in Fargo, specializing in technology law, and he created Fargo Startup House, where entrepreneurs can live for free.

In the next five years, Danielson predicts a more robust Fargo tech scene, with a few wild successes and some wild failures. When the city sees its first exit success story of this new era—someone who starts with nothing and ends up with hundreds of millions of dollars—he said that will be “one that looms in the minds of people forever.”

At the end of my day in Fargo, I returned to Prairie Den. Spooner was setting up hammocks for an evening event. An Emerging Prairie Tweet read, “We sway while we work.”

That night, I watched a video of Tehven’s TEDxFargo talk. He was speaking at the Fargo Civic Center in 2014, outside of which sits a stone slab with the Ten Commandments.

“The Coen brothers were wrong,” he told the audience. “It isn’t a place of barrenness. It isn’t a place of cold. It’s a place of the most amazing people in the world.”

The following week I had dinner back home with a friend who works in the technology industry, and I told him I thought he should move to Fargo. Yes, it’s a place that gets an average of 50 inches of snow a year, and it’s so cold that the bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But there’s a lot going on there, I told him. Shortly thereafter, I woke up from a dream in which I was on my way back to Fargo. In it, I was with someone—perhaps my tech friend—and felt a sense of urgency. Eager to find housing, I sped westward, not wanting to miss out.

Who should use Dark Spot Corrector? Our Dark Spot Corrector is the appropriate treatment option for anyone looking to help fade the appearance of dark spots, regardless of age or gender. While we formulated our product with the highest quality, safe ingredients, every person's skin is unique so it is best to test the product on a different skin area to make sure you react well to the ingredients.


A different spot corrector actually made my dark spots MORE noticeable. Could this happen with your product? The reason many other products make your dark spots MORE noticeable is because they use harsh, potentially dangerous bleaching agents, which can seep into surrounding skin. This means that they can cause a white "ring" to form around the dark spot - which actually makes the spot "highlighted" and more obvious!


Our product won't cause this effect because it does not contain a bleaching agent. Active ingredients in Dark Spot Corrector work deep within the skin where dark spots start, to "break up" areas of hyperpigmentation and reduce melanin overproduction naturally.

How do I use Dark Spot Corrector? It should be used up to four times daily, depending on the color and size of your spots. Using a pea- or dime-sized amount, apply the treatment directly to your areas of hyperpigmentation. Because our skin's natural healing processes are most efficient at night, never forget to apply before bed!


Other spot correctors I've tried smell horrible, like chemicals. Does yours? Many other spot correctors smell like harsh chemicals because they're MADE with horrible chemicals. We, on the other hand, spent years actively searching for the most powerful natural ingredients in the world that can achieve the same (or even better) results as those harsh chemicals, without any of the risk or danger. Because ours is more natural, you won't experience the "ink" or "Clorox" smells so many other products have. Ours smells very lightly of plum and honey, due to its inclusion of the powerful Kakadu plum.


I have oily, acne-prone skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector clog my pores or cause breakouts? Many products have a heavy cream base that makes skin feel oily and greasy. Instead, ours has a light gel base that dries quickly and absorbs into the layers of the epidermis - instead of sitting on top of your skin and clogging pores. This makes it ideal to use before makeup application or before applying your daily SPF moisturizer.


I have very dry skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector irritate my skin or cause flaking like other products I've tried? The ingredients in our formula contain properties meant to moisturize and protect the skin, unlike other products whose harsh chemicals dry out and dehydrate the epidermis. Every person's skin is different - but most people using this product should notice a pleasant, non-greasy moisturizing effect.

Can I use Dark Spot Corrector around my eyes? Although our dark spot corrector is formulated with gentle, non-irritating ingredients, the skin around the eyes is significantly thinner than surrounding skin - making it much more delicate and sensitive. That's why it is best to use products around the eyes that are specifically formulated for that area.


Is there a money-back guarantee? Our mission at 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals is to create effective and affordable products that not only meet but exceed your expectations. We want to prove this to you. Test-drive our products for two months and feel confident in your decision. On top of that, our expert customer service team is always here for you to answer any questions you may have about the product.

Dr. Ellen Marmur, MD , Dermatology: Your body is constantly under attack from outside forces, and the skin is its greatest defender. It functions like Gore-tex, a high-tech outer sheath that protects us from temperature extremes, wind, and ultraviolet rays from the sun. It's a two-way barrier that not only retains water in the body but also acts as a water-resistant raincoat against too much water coming in. It's also our best shield against injury (bruises, cuts, and scrapes) and infection.

This incredible packaging contains us and keeps the body in balance by regulating temperature and providing insulation from heat and cold. For example, all the hair follicles are attached to tiny muscles that contract as a response to cold air, elevating hair on the body and trapping air around us, keeping the body warm like fur. When it's hot outside, cooling mechanisms kick into gear as the nervous system triggers the blood vessels and sweat glands to release heat as fast as possible. Overheated blood is pumped away from the heart and out to the skin, where the heat dissipates (which is why your skin becomes flushed). Sweating cools the skin by bringing moisture to the surface, where it evaporates in the air - instant air-conditioning. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work


Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease): Your skin works to protect you in many ways. First, skin covers your entire body and provides waterproof protection. But skin does so much more than that!

Skin, a complex organ, is the largest organ in your body. It produces melanin, the brown pigment that protects against the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It also contains special immune cells, called Langerhans cells that protect your body from potentially dangerous microbes. Skin contains lymph cells (lymphocytes) that protect you from infection. It contains sweat glands that help your body get rid of waste and maintain the correct body temperature. And, last but not least, your skin is rich in nerve cells that allow you to experience touch, which plays a key role in human emotions, including sexual attraction. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work


Other products I've tried gave me results at first, but then stopped working after a while. Will this happen with your product? The reason you may have experienced this with other products is because they may not have added enough of the active ingredients (usually to cut corners and save a buck), or they use harsh chemicals that cause an instant reaction but do not work in the long term. Instead, our formula is packed with ingredients that give you LASTING results, and the longer you use the product, the better results you'll experience.


Is it suitable for all skin types? Since our Dark Spot Corrector contains safe, natural ingredients that help regenerate your skin from the inside out, our unique formula can be used on every skin type without the risk of side effects. However, every person's skin is different, so results may vary.


Can it be used on sensitive skin? Because our Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with natural, gentle ingredients, it is safe to use on even the most sensitive skin. However, those who know they have sensitive skin are always advised to use caution when using any new product for the first time.


How do I know it's working? We always recommend that our patients take a "before" picture prior to their first use. Take your "after" photo about a month later and you can see the results for yourself! Our patients have reported a reduction in the color and size of the hyper-pigmented area, but since every person's skin is unique, every person's experience is slightly different.

          Erik K Fernströms pris till cancerforskaren Óscar Fernandez-Capetillo   
Óscar Fernandez-Capetillo, professor i cancerterapi vid institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik, tilldelas priset för banbrytande forskning om hur skador i DNA leder till cancer och åldrande. I sin forskning studerar Óscar Fernandez-Capetillo replikativ stress och replikativa skador på DNA – det vill säga skador som uppstår när DNA kopierar sig självt i samband med celldelning. Sådana skador är orsak till både åldrande och cancer. Fernandez-Capetillos forskningsintresse gäller dels vad som orsakar denna replikativa stress, dels cellens mekanismer för att upptäcka och reparera skadorna. I denna process har enzymet ATR-kinas en nyckelroll. Han har bland annat visat att replikativ stress accelererar åldrande hos däggdjur, och att ATR-hämmare är en kandidat för framtida behandling mot cancer. Forskningen i hans grupp vid Karolinska Institutet inkluderar också bland annat försök att utveckla en behandling mot amyotrofisk lateralskleros, ALS. Óscar Fernandez-Capetillo är född 1974. Han är sedan 1 januari 2015 professor i cancerterapi vid KI. Erik K. Fernströms Pris Stiftelsen bildades 1978 för att främja vetenskaplig medicinsk forskning. Stiftelsens främsta syfte är att årligen utdela penningpriser till forskare som gjort framstående insatser inom de medicinska vetenskaperna. Fernström önskade speciellt att stimulera yngre forskare. Stiftelsen delar därför årligen ut ett nordiskt pris och sex priser till yngre forskare. Var och en av landets medicinska fakultet utser sin egen pristagare.
          Skomentuj O blogerze co się dyrektorom nie kłaniał, czyli jak #FinNinja trafił do kolejnych bibliotek, którego autorem jest Ktoś tam   
Stary wątek, dopiero go przeczytałam, ale jako pracownik pewnej biblioteki, jako stała czytelniczka bloga i osoba, która wystarała się o książkę FN dla "swoich" czytelników - muszę zabrać głos w konflikcie. Moim zdaniem nastąpiła bezsensowna eskalacja złych emocji w tej w sumie błahej sprawie. Zdziwiłam się, Michale, że poczułeś się tak mocno dotknięty treścią maila od p. dyrektor - że jest niekulturalny, chamski (cyt. za komentarzami pod artykułem), że pani powinna świecić przykładem na takim stanowisku (w domyśle: więc chyba się na to stanowisko nie nadaje..). Było mi bardzo przykro czytając Twój tekst, gdyż w mojej ocenie jest poniekąd odwetem za odmowę przyjęcia Twej książki. W tekście nie powinny znaleźć się nazwiska pracowników biblioteki. Oczywiście domyślam się, że od razu zostanę posądzona o "klepanie się po pleckach" czy zawodową solidarność, natomiast pragnę napisać, jak to wszystko wygląda "od kuchni". Otóż instytucja publiczna to nie jest nowoczesna firma, zwłaszcza z branży IT. Jako młoda osoba widzę w "budżetówkach" mnóstwo procedur, nierzadko bezsensownych, których należy bezwzględnie przestrzegać, bo zagwarantowało się to własnym podpisem na baardzo licznych formularzach, a za niedopełnienie procedur grożą konsekwencje. Coś jak warunkowy skręt w prawo - wszyscy wiemy, że najpierw należy zatrzymać się przed przejściem dla pieszych, ale jak się zatrzymasz, to ktoś Cię obtrąbi ("baba za kierownicą!"), albo nawet wjedzie w zadek ("co za głąb, zatrzymał się, a przecież nikt nie przechodził przez przejście!"); z kolei jak się nie zatrzymasz, to policja Ci wlepi karniaki. To po pierwsze. Po drugie - w dzisiejszych czasach reklama jest bardzo nachalna, książek edukacyjnych, coachingowych, tym samym promujących usługi ich autorów mnóstwo, a biblioteka jako instytucja publiczna nie może przyjmować książek "jak leci". Tym pragnę wytłumaczyć nieufność wobec darmowej przesyłki. Apel do zniecierpliwionych brakiem książki w zbiorach komentatorów: zanim książka trafi na półkę, musi przejść dość długą drogę: 1) zostać wraz z innymi licznymi książkami (nowościami, darami, przerzutami) dostarczona z placówki do działu gromadzenia i opracowania; 2) zostać przez ten dział opracowana w programie komputerowym, być oklejona, ostemplowana itd.; 3) musi zostać dostarczona z mnóstwem innych książek z powrotem do placówki, która często czyni na książkach dodatkowe oznakowania dostosowane do specyfiki działu. Pamiętajmy, że książka Michała Szafrańskiego to jedna spośród bardzo wielu innych książek czekających na opracowanie, a na które również oczekują bardzo zniecierpliwieni (tak, tak!) czytelnicy. Dział opracowania może aktualnie przeprowadzać skontrum (inwentaryzację księgozbioru) w którejś z placówek, zajmować się przetargiem na zakup książek czy innymi niezbędnymi czynnościami spowalniającymi proces dotarcia książek na półkę. Nie spotkałam się w swej pracy, aby ktokolwiek z pracowników zawłaszczył sobie książkę, wręcz przeciwnie - wbrew powyższym posądzeniom o kradzieże, marnowanie publicznych pieniędzy, kumoterstwo i tym podobne grzechy, mogę z całą odpowiedzialnością napisać, że zawód bibliotekarza to jeden z najbardziej ofiarnych, niedocenianych, choć jednocześnie cieszących się wysokim zaufaniem społecznym zawodów. Gdy trzeba zrobić odprawę online, napisać CV, zrobić przelew do banku, a nawet... pośredniczyć w sprzedaży mieszkania przez internet - od tego jest pani bibliotekarka. Jeśli ktoś natomiast myśli, że jest tu niezła kasa, trzynastki, czternastki i całe dnie pije się kawę - zapraszam serdecznie na służbę! :D Michale, życzę Ci więcej dystansu do swej osoby, pamiętaj, że po drugiej stronie zawsze stoi człowiek - który niekoniecznie jest złośliwy, perfidny, leniwy. Może być unurzany w świecie, o którym masz bardzo mgliste pojęcie. Jako pracownik instytucji kultury, a więc wzór cnót wszelakich, powinnam pisać powyżej nienaganną polszczyzną, nie używać wyrazów potocznych, a może zdarzyła mi się jakaś literówka czy inny błąd - wybaczcie, nie będę za to uniżenie przepraszać;D Pozdrawiam.

    Płonie zabytkowa katedra w centrum Gorzowa Wielkopolskiego. Z ogniem walczy ponad 20 zastępów straży pożarnej. Prezentujemy zdjęcia otrzymane od naszych czytelników, wielu z nich wybrało się do stolicy województwa lubuskiego na odbywające się tam Dni Gorzowa.

    Zgłoszenie o pożarze strażacy otrzymali w sobotę ok godz. 18.30. Akcja gaśnicza nie jest łatwa, ogień pojawił się w drewnianej konstrukcji wieży, a ta grozi zawaleniem.

    Kościół katedralny pod wezwaniem Wniebowzięcia Najświętszej Maryi Panny to jedna z najstarszych budowli w mieście oraz symbol Gorzowa.

    Pierwsze zdjęcia otrzymaliśmy od naszej czytelniczki Marioli i Klaudi.

              Znęcał się nad konkubiną, inny zaatakował policjanta   

    O tym, że policjanci nie mają łatwej pracy wiadomo od dawna, funkcjonariusze niemal codziennie otrzymują zgłoszenia do przypadków przemocy. 

    W poniedziałek 26 czerwca jedna z mieszkanek powiatu gryfińskiego powiadomiła KPP w Gryfinie, iż jej 57 letni konkubent znęca się nad nią psychicznie i fizycznie.

    W ten sam dzień mieszkaniec jednej z miejscowości w powiecie gryfińskim powiadomił KPP w Gryfinie o wypowiadanych wobec niego groźbach pozbawienia życia, które wzbudzają u niego uzasadniona obawę ich spełnienia.

    Dzień później, 41-letni mieszkaniec Gryfina szarpiąc za mundur oraz popychając naruszył nietykalność cielesną Policjanta. 

              Umowy na remonty zabytków i bazy sportowej podpisane   

    Boisko piłkarskie ze sztuczną nawierzchnią w Kołbaczu i baszta więzienna w Kołbaczu jeszcze w tym roku doczekają się remontu. Będzie do możliwe dzięki umowom podpisanym w Szczecinie w czwartek, 29 czerwca br. przez członek Zarządu Województwa Annę Mieczkowską i wójta gminy Stare Czarnowo Marzenę Grzywińską.

    Fundusze na bazę sportową
    Pierwsza umowa dotyczy remontu boiska ze sztuczną nawierzchnią w Kołbaczu. To obiekt położony przy hali sportowej. Koszt modernizacji oszacowano na 100 tys. zł. Wsparcie z budżetu Urzędu Marszałkowskiego wyniesie 18 tys. zł.

    - Małe środki o dużym znaczeniu dla gminy. Cieszymy się, że mogliśmy pomóc - mówiła członek Zarządu Województwa Anna Mieczkowska. 

    Boisko zostało wybudowane obok hali widowiskowo-sportowej w 2010 roku. Po kilku latach intensywnego użytku wymaga prac renowacyjnych. Obiekt jest ogólnodostępny, zarówno dla mieszkańców gminy, jak i uczniów Zespołu Szkół w Kołbaczu. Pierwszym etapem modernizacji będzie usunięcie obecnej nawierzchni. Następnie zostanie wyrównana istniejąca podbudowa i przeprowadzone będzie uzupełnienie braków, nierówności i ubytków. Finalny punkt prac to montaż nowej sztucznej nawierzchni wraz z pomalowaniem linii wyznaczającymi pole gry.

    Środki na zabytki
    Druga z podpisanych umów zakłada, że w baszcie więziennej w Kołbaczu wykonane zostaną dalsze prace modernizacyjne. Inwestycja realizowana będzie w 2017 roku. Jej koszt to 60 tys. zł a wsparcie Marszałka Województwa wyniesie 25 tys. zł.

    - Troska o zabytki to nasza wspólna sprawa. Po tym, jak dbamy o dziedzictwo kulturowe ocenią nas
    przyszłe pokolenia
    - zauważa wójt Marzena Grzywińska.
    Gotycka baszta powstała w I połowie XIV w. To jedyny tego typu obiekt o funkcji obronnej i więziennej w województwie zachodniopomorskim. Zabytek jest również częścią całego założenia Klasztoru Cysterskiego Kołbacz, uznanego w 2014 roku jako Pomnik Historii Rozporządzeniem Prezydenta RP Bronisława Komorowskiego.

    Tegoroczny remont przewiduje odnowienie elewacji ścian od strony południowej i zachodniej oraz wymianę stolarki drzwiowej. Dzięki wcześniejszemu dofinansowaniu z Urzędu Marszałkowskiego udało się już wykonać projekt remontu baszty a z funduszy gminnych przeprowadzono remont dachu zabytkowego obiektu.

    Przy podpisaniu umowy obecni byli także radna województwa Ewa Dudar oraz radny powiatu gryfińskiego, dyrektor Wydziału Ochrony Środowiska Urzędu Marszałkowskiego Mariusz Adamski.

              Don't Nobody Bring me, No Bad News... I wish.   

          Just once in my life, I’d like to go to a doctor’s office and walk out with a diagnosis of “Just take these few pills and you’ll be right as rain in no time.” But, no, that’s not my luck or life. I went into my PCP a few weeks ago, because the little nodules in my palms (painless) we suddenly growing rapidly and were very rock hard to the touch. She sent me over to a hand specialist with the expectations they were just simple ganglion cysts that can be removed in a simple office visit. NOPE. These are not cysts. I have Dupuytren’s Disease, which could potentially cause my fingers to curl into my palms and become immovable. It’s a genetic disease, a faulty gene in my DNA is the culprit, my body is creating fibrous scar tissue on healthy muscle, skin and tendons, sending out fibers to connect together tendons and tissue like a spider web, pulling the fibers taught and hard (Like it’s trying to knit a wound together where there is no wound.)

          There is no cure, surgery to cut the fibers when it gets to that stage is the only option and it involves skin grafts too. It’s very invasive because the fibers also connect to nerves, one bad CUT in surgery and the nerve is severed. It’s also not a permanent cure. Once this gene is triggered, it doesn’t stop. The surgery would have to be repeated every few years. Thankfully, I’m not that far along yet. But I am showing rapid fibrous growth, not a good sign. Rather heartbreaking news for an author and an artist who rely on using their hands. So I am NOT in the best of moods today as I walk out of yet another Doctor’s office with ONE MORE DISEASE added to my laundry list of Diseases.

    • ·         Severe Pulmonary Disease
    • ·         Chronic Acute Asthma
    • ·         Type II Diabetes
    • ·         Diabetes Mellitus Peripheral Neuropathy
    • ·         Degenerative Bone Disease (Osteoporosis)
    • ·         Osteoarthritis
    • ·         Gastroparesis (Neuropathy of the Stomach)
    • ·         Myofascial Pain Lower Back Protruding L3, L4, L5 Vertebrae
    • ·         Pre-Renal Neuropathy (Progressive Kidney failure,)
    • ·         And now Dupuytren’s Disease.

          I don’t need to have every medical condition in the book thanks! It freaking sucks.

          People call me “strong” and “brave” and a “fighter”. Well, you know what… it’s only because I have to be. There’s no secret to coping, you just *DO*. You have two choices. Live life as best you can for as long as you can and do everything Doctor’s tell you to try and stay alive just one more day. *Or* you can give up. I may be a lot of things, but I have never been a quitter. Never give up, never surrender!

              Being a Grown Up really SUCKS sometimes   

    This was one of those days you wish you could be a KID again and not have to deal with "Grown-Up" stuff.
    Day starts off 6 fucking oclock in the morning, my cousin Tanya calls, think of the most miserable, depressing person you have ever met, on so many medications she sounds like a drunk after about 15 CASES of beer. I only half understand what she's mumbling about, I was asleep myself in my own drug haze until my phone goes off. She's is, of course, asking for money. *sigh*
    7 AM Take Cookie to the Vet for an ear swab, they want to run a culture, another $61.00 and we still don;t know why he's losing the hair JUST ON HIS EARS. we can't find any cause or mites or anything. Now Needy has it. So the ear drops are a start.
    8AM Call AT&T to bitch, The land line that was supposed to be WORKING MONDAY is still not working. They say they will send someone out to look at the line again. Fine.
    8:15 AM Oh yay! I might get a couple hours of sleep, I hadn't slept but maybe and hour before Tanya called, and the people I have coming over to fix things aren't due until 2 PM! SUPER
    8:30  - Diarhhea Hits
    9:00 - Imodium AD finally works, lay down
    9:15 The phone calls start. The Heating and Cooliing guy finally got the mother board part in for my system we've been waiting for, for DOGS AGES he wants to come over now and install it. *sigh* OKAY (I need a slew of meme faces in this post.)
    9:15-12:00 It's like who let the fucking DOGS OUT around here. Heating guy in and out, the pool guys are FINALLY getting my pool prepped for summer. It was supposed to be FINISHED by Memorial Day weekend. Gee 3 weeks overdue. No problem! Cell phone ringing off the hook.
    1:00 - Tanya calls again (I'm used to this Tanya calls me 18  million times a day to tell me no one loves her, she's a sympathy seeker. It's her modus operandi. I just put her on speaker and let her yammer on and go "uh-huh" every few minutes. She needs help, but won't GET IT. I am so close to writing Dr. Phil it isn't funny.
    2:00 - Internet Tech Guy show up for my upgrade. WHAT A NIGHTMARE it's worse than ever my internet and it's not this tech guys fault he was here like 4 hours trying to get this shit working.
    3:00 - My Pest Control guy shows up for the monthly spray and he's mad that I have too many spiders outside. He's in a never ending fight with my spiders apparently, they are his nemesis. But I love him, we talk sci-fi and he was like "OMG SUPERNATURAL ENDING! I wanted to call you! WTH?!?!? Cas Waddyer you doing poofing out and leaving Dean alone in Purgatory? He can't poof like you!!!!" Then I had to break the news to him Terra Nova was cancelled. We mourned a little together.
    4:00 - Get VOICE MAIL from AT&T guy, he says it's fixed. I go pick up the land line. NOPE no dial tone. I call him back. "Lady I only bring the line to the house. You have to call installation." I DID YOU FUCKTARD! I TOLD THEM 1.) when I ordered the landline that the jack would need to be checked, there is only one in this house and this is an older house. 2.) They failed to check it and sent the guy to just connect line to the house then apparently leave. 3.) I call and again tell them the PHONE NO WORKY, I THINK JACKY IS BADDY 4.) Guy comes again then leaves, then leaves that voice mail.... 5.) AT&T is going to hate me in the morning. I am biting heads off like Ozzy Osbourne in the A of M.
    5:00 - Hubby home, looks like truck ran him over. He's coming down with a cold. The Car dealership  calls to confirm my 30,000 mile maint tomorrow. I confirm. 
    6:00 - THe internet guy is crying. He hates insight's new router/modem integrated box, it works for SHIT.
    7:00 - We get spotty internet. I send off scathing e-mail to insight support about what I think of their UPGRADE and where they can shove it frankly.
    8:00 - Fuck it I am ordering PIZZA I have not had a good day and it's been up and down stairs all freaking day and on the phone.
    8:15 - Phone again... GUESS WHO!? Tanya. SHe's so drugged up I can't understand a word, I hear her hubby (And let me tell you after 21 years of marriage to my cousin I am surprised he is still around. He's GOT to love her because that man goes through HELL daily.) I have Tanya put Verlin on the phone I ask "What the hell is she saying?" And I can tell in his voice he's at his wits END.  He's so tired. It's same old same old just a different day. Well their daughter wants to come live with "auntie" Dana, she asked over Memorial Day weekend. I understand her, she's a little anime nerd, doodler, RPGer (Hell she shares my DNA I'm really not surprised really.) And Tanya as much as I love her, is a terrible mother. It's the medications they make her really EVIL and that's NOT the Tanya I grew up with. I hate her medications with a passion. I've wanted her kids with me a long time just to give them some PEACE and QUIET. 
    8:30 my niece gets on the phone, Tanya has decided she does not want us to get her teeth surgery done, we've offered it many times and she always turns it down. She'd rather be miserable and get attention than WELL and perhaps not get as much attention. So I was planning on going the 27th to get my niece, nephew and Tanya and take them to the family reunion. Then get Tanya's surgery done. NOPE! Tanya won't come, my nephew is mad I won't let him bring his fat smelly farty jack russell with him. because 1.) I have 4 cats who would eat him alive... 2.) I have 4 cats, 3.) Did I mention I have 4 cats? 4.) 2 of which, MIGHT have dog mites in their ears so it's a risk to the dog. So now he's not coming cause he can't bring the dog. *sigh*
    8:45 I am on the phone with niece again with a "GET ME OUT OF HERE PLEASE!!!!!" sound to her voice. I can't go tomorrow to get her because of the car maintenance. But I'll get her on Thursday.
    OI VEY!
    9:00 eat cold pizza
    10:00 Tanya calls... even more wasted than before. *HEADDESK* I'm terrible I pretend my phone battery is dying and I have to hang up. I tell her I love her and then turn off my phone.
    That was MY day how was yours?

              Response to a Jewish Nazi – Only a Zionist would be interested in proving that Jackie Walker is not Jewish   
    When you live in or support a state, in this case the State of Israel which is based on racial supremacy, it is important to know who is and who is not a member of the master race.  Religion is there to define who is a member of the herrenvolk or the untermenschen, that is all.  
    Jackie Walker
    It is not surprising that in Israel, you can’t convert to Judaism unless you are a White European. The Jerusalem Post reported (1.4.16) ‘Palestinian Requests To Convert To Judaism Rejected Automatically':
    To initiate an officially recognized conversion to Judaism in Israel, foreigners need to apply to the special cases panel of the Conversion Authority.

    The threshold requirements” to be considered by the special cases panel, Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz, director of the Israeli government’s Conversion Authority, said,are that applicants be sincere and that they are not foreign workers; infiltrators; Palestinian or illegally in the country.” In 2014, he added, the special cases committee received 400 applications. “Half of the applicants were accepted, the rest were rejected as foreign workers, infiltrators, illegal stayers and Palestinians.”
    The eugenecist origins of the Israeli state

    I am not an expert on Jewish religious law but I do know that nowhere in the Talmud or the Torah is there any mention of the fact that Palestinians cannot convert to Judaism.  Nor is there any mention of ‘infiltrators’ or foreign workers or illegal immigrants.  These are political categories.  In other words, in a state based on race you cannot have the lower races or the Untermenschen joining the master race (herren volk).  This is perfectly understandable because in Israel being a Jew confers privileges that non-Jews do not have and therefore you cannot have people changing their race in order to get a house or an extra grant.

    The Zionists, as part of their false ‘anti-Semitism’ campaign in the Labour Party have been targeting Jackie Walker.  You can read the details in my article The lynching of Jackie Walker and Jonathan Rosenhead’s Jackie Walker: a suspense mystery.  Being Black Jackie is and was an ideal target for these racists.  The only problem was that she was Jewish.  Hence we have the spectacle of these Zionists, in the best traditions of the Nazis, investigating Jackie’s ancestry in order to ‘prove’ that she isn’t Jewish.

    What is Jewish identity? A response to the general garbage written by Jewish racial purists and in particular to this blog by ‘Jew Know’

    Jackie Walker speaking to the LRC meeting in Brighton September 2016
    Recently there has been a(nother) spate of attacks of the ‘Jackie not a Jew’ type. Most have been downright racist, some hilarious, all show an obsessive concern for genealogy, an old trope of racists, in their attempt to police something which is in fact too complex to be policed; Jewish identity.

    This most recent contribution by ‘Jew Know’ made me think (probably because I was on holiday), not just about my identity, but of Jewish identity, of racism, ethno-nationalism, racial purity and of those who put themselves up as guardians of identity whether they are white, black, Jewish or any other.

    First thing ‘Jew Know’ - learn something about cultures that are not your own, otherwise you are simply an ignorant Jew Know-little.

    You cannot trace the ancestry of Caribbean people using records (alone). Slave records are limited (for obvious reasons). Parentage was often not attributed, or falsely attributed. Records were ‘manipulated’, for example, especially when women had ‘relations’ or were raped by white men (the description ‘white’ in this instance includes Jews in the context of the racialised, colour ordered Caribbean). In any case, in a society where even long term, committed relationships between white and black would/could not be officially endorsed/recognised another ‘father’ was often named on official documents.

    Neither does ‘Jew Know’ take account of the particular oppressions experienced by Jewish refugees on the run from Christian persecution, for example the ‘Conversos’ (Jews who were forced, often on pain of death, to convert) and the other Jews of the Caribbean who were forced to compromise in so many other ways simply to survive, or those who chose to take on a more fluid, syncretic idea of what made them Jewish.
    A typical example of the racism that Jackie Walker has to put up with

    Yes, Jew Know appears pretty ignorant of the positioning of Jews in the Caribbean, the flow of Caribbean ethno-religious cultures, the conversion to Judaism undertaken by enslaved African women who wanted/were coerced into ‘marrying’ Jewish men. There is no comment on this – and for good reason, because Jew Know doesn’t have a clue, you know.

    The binary outlook reflected in Jew Know’s blog betrays deep-seated ignorance of the many variations of Jewishness that have historically always been part of Jewish history. But according to Jew Know everything to do with Jewish identity has the simplicity of any authoritarian ideology; you are either Jewish or not. There is no scope for variation, no intersectionality, no understanding of the potential conflicts, complex histories inherent in being black and Jewish, Arab and Jewish, Asian and Jewish. No, In Jew Know’s kosher world there is no room for complexity, no Jewish diversity, just a nice, easy, genetic (or is it religious) monoculture where bright eyed Jewish mothers give birth to Jewish children and people have access to the easy going charms of the local Rabbi to sort things out when things get …. mucky for Jew Know cannot tolerate a world of self-determination -  no - a higher authority must always decree.

    But as we all know – none of that’s true – Jews, like every other people, come in all sorts.

    Jew Know expresses religious and ethnic definition of identity and leaves no room for those with no religious commitment but with the necessary ancestry, those who have been adopted, those ‘in care’, those orphaned and separated from the community. Jew Know does not admit the perspective of Reformed Jews, those who advocate that Jewish identity can be inherited from a father as well as mother – no.

    Then tell me Jew Know, in your little, little world, what about the people of Jewish heritage born to people who have not practiced any religion, maybe for generations? Ok – strike them out!

    And is acceptance of a Jewish state part of being Jewish? When and who decided that one? And are the very many non or anti-Zionist Jews ‘self-haters and not real Jews in your book too? I think I know your awnser.

    I have nothing to prove to you Jew Know. You shame the Jewish heritage you claim.

    To deny my Jewish heritage is racist, deeply racist and you are a racist. It is as unacceptable to deny my Jewish heritage, the political and historical struggles that brought my parents together as it would be to deny my African or Caribbean ancestry.  Your attitudes reflect the deep-seated and shameful racism entrenched in sections of the Jewish community.

    It reflects a shameful intolerance, a lack of inclusivity, empathy, an essentialism that harvests a paucity of the soul. As with all ethno-nationalists these attitudes undermine the high-ground they seek to attain; complexity is the life-blood of creativity, the life-blood of a modern, tolerant society, the only path of progress for humanity. Want help with these ideas? I suggest you contact Mocha Jews and find out more http://mochajuden.com

    Jew Know in fact you appear to Know Little of the multi-faceted history of the Jewish people, a people that in the last 2,000 years engagedand yes, MIXED at times, and very often with the rest of the world, were an essential part of much of it. These Jewish people fought to be a part, not set apart, from the countries they inhabited. …. Hurrah!

    And then, in true racial purity tradition you dig up what you claim are my genealogical records and publish what you again claim is my family tree (sordid aren’t you, it will be my underwear drawer next I presume). By the way, I have know nothing of some of the people you refer to as my ancestors – and truth is neither do you – though I can take you back on one side to the 15th century and the pogroms of the Spain and Portugal and on the other to an African griot.

    My DNA (which I have a detailed analysis of and have had for sometime) is the business of me and my family – and my friends who have seen it. As for the rest ……

    Youhave caused distress to many people, Jewish and non Jewish. Your intolerance and racism is an embarrassment, not just to Jews but to all good people everywhere. You have caused outrage, in particular to members of the black and Caribbean community in Britain.

    Jew Know – I wouldn’t ask you to prove your Jewishness, I would however welcome you proving your humanity but truth is on that one, I won’t be holding my breath.   .

    Background to Zionist Racism
    From its very beginning Zionism was, in the words of Max Nordau, Theodor Herzl’s Deputy, a matter of race not religion.  Nordau, was a follower of Lombroso the social Darwinist criminologist.  Nordau claimed that ‘The Jews possess a greater enterprising spirit and abilities than the average European, to say nothing about all those Asians or Africans.’ [Max Nordau to this People, New York 1941, p.73] In an interview with La Libre Parole, Edouard Drumont’s anti-Semitic daily, in 1903 Nordau explained that that ‘(Zionism) is not a question of religion but exclusively of race and there is noone with whom I am in greater agreement on this position than M Drumont.’ (Desmond Steward, Herzl, p. 322)
    According to Moses Hess, the first modern, political Zionist, in his novel Rome & Jerusalem:Race struggle is primary; class struggle is secondary.” [Moses Hess, Rome & Jerusalem,Philosophical Library, New York, 1958, p.10. Cologne May 1862].
    Nor was this fascination with race confined to a few Zionist intellectuals.  A pillar of the Zionist leadership, Arthur Ruppin, known as the Father of Land Settlement in the Yishuv (Jewish community in Palestine) and a member of the Zionist Executive described how, in his diary of August 11, he had travelled to Jenna on August 16, 1933:
    to meet Prof. Hans F.K. Günther, the founder of National-Socialist race theory. The conversation lasted two hours. Günther was most congenial… and agreed with me that the Jews are not inferior but different, and that the Jewish Question has to be solved justly. [Amos Morris-Reich, Arthur Ruppin’s Concept of Race, Journal of Israel studies, volume 11, number 3 p.1. citing CZA A107/954]
    Eitan Bloom writes of how
    The idea of segregation was central to Ruppin’s eugenic planning… in order to produce a culture of their own, the Jews had to live… separated from any other culture… the Jew needed to be segregated in a space that would enable him to be among his like; only such “kinship of race” would encourage him to be healthy and creative.’[Eitan Bloom, Arthur Ruppin and the Production of the Modern Hebrew Culture, Ph. D. thesis, Tel Aviv University, December 2008].
    Hans Günther, a member of the Nazi party from 1929, was Himmler’s ideological mentor and ‘the highest scientific authority concerning racial theory.’ [Bloom, p.405-6.].
    In May 1930 Gunther was appointed Professor to the Chair of Racial Anthropology at Jena University, after the intervention of Wilhelm Frick, the first National Socialist state minister and later Nazi Minister of the Interior. Gunther praised Zionism ‘for recognizing the genuine racial consciousness (Volkstum) of the Jews.’ [Bloom, op. cit. p.408].Ruppin saw in Günther’s writings ‘a treasure chest of material.’ [Bloom, p. 409, Arthur Ruppin, Briefe, Tagebucher, Erinnerungen, (ed.) Schlomo Krolik, Leo Baeck Instituts, Königstein: Leo Baeck Instituts & Jüdischer Verlag Athenau, 1985.p.422]
    In Germany the Nazis divided society into Aryan and non-Aryan.  How did they define the Jew?  Simple they went back to 1870 to see if someone’s grandparents were practising Jews.  Were they baptized?  So the definition of race, which is supposed to be biological in fact rested on religious practice which is why in the case of the ‘mixed race’ Mischlinge, those who had one or two Jewish grandparents, if the parents or the persons themselves or their children were practising Jews then that determined their racial belonging.
     Eugenics, the ‘science’ of selective breeding which Hitler based his ‘euthenasia’ programme on and which was the precursor of the Holocaust, was integral to the foundation of the Israeli medical service under Dr Joseph Meir. [Ha'aretz, 11.6.04., Do Not Have Children if They Won't Be Healthy!'].   Indeed it was integral to social policy at the beginning of the Israeli state.  Hence why thousands of Yemenite and Arab Jewish children were kidnapped from their parents, reported to be dead and secretly given to European Ashkenazi parents to bring up.
    In Israel Black Jews are at the bottom of the pile and many Zionists don’t accept that you can be Black and Jewish.  Much like Donald Trump refused to accept that Barak Obama was Black and American, hence the Birther movement demanded to see his birth certificate.  In Israel the Black Ethiopian Jews are the most discriminated against of all and large parts of the Orthodox Rabbinate refused to accept they were Jewish and insisted that the men undergo another circumcision.

    The Black Hebrews were a sect that emigrated from the USA and although a community of them live in the Negev near Beer Sheeva now, many of them previously were deported from Israel because they were not considered Jews.  This is in essence what lies behind the attempts of pathetic little racists like jonny dravitz to ‘prove’ that Jackie Walker isn’t Jewish. 

    That is where Jackie Walker comes in.  She was the Black Jewish anti-Zionist who the Jewish Labour Movement and other Zionists tried to use as the traditional symbol of the Black devil in the Labour Party, the archetypal anti-Semite.

    Te Israeli Law of Return, which allows me to ‘return’ to Israel even though I’ve never lived there but prevents a Palestinian returning even if they were born there (they are classified as ‘infiltrators’) is based on virtually the same racial criteria as the definition of a Jew under the Nuremburg Laws, viz. whether someone’s parents or grandparents are Jewish.  Indeed under the 1970 Amendment it goes wider and classifies as Jewish for the purpose of Return a spouse of a Jew.  Since Jackie’s father is Jewish then she is Jewish for the purpose of the Law of Return but in Israel itself the Orthodox Rabbinate control all personal affairs and the definition is much stricter. You are only Jewish if your mother is Jewish and Reform Judaism isn’t recognized.
    There is though something pathetic in the attempt of the Jewish Labour Movement under Jeremy Newmark and petty little Judeo-Nazis like Jonny Kravitz trying to ‘prove’ that Jackie isn’t Jewish.  Except that they don’t even have the courage or honesty to say that she is a cushi or shvartze

              Qualcomm: Funkcionalni senzori otisaka prstiju smešteni ispod ekrana   

    Na ovogodišnjoj konferenciji Mobile World Congress Shanghai američki Qualcomm konačno je predstavio funkcionalnu tehnologiju senzora otisaka prstiju smeštenih ispod samog ekrana. Tačnije, reč je o platformi nazvanoj Qualcomm Finger Print Sensors koja pokriva širok spektar uređaja od onih entry-level klase pa sve do budućih flagshipova.

    Za high-end uređaje smeštaj senzora otisaka prstiju ispod ekrana moguć je zahvaljujući upotrebi ultrasoničnog senzora, uz određena ograničenja, kao što je tip ekrana (tehnologija radi isključivo na OLED ekranima) i debljina ekrana (maksimalno 1200 mikrometara).

    U odnosu na tradicionalne senzore otisaka prstiju, novi senzor osim smeštaja ispod ekrana nudi i mogućnost praćenja otkucaja srca te merenja protoka krvi u žilama. Još jedna od prednosti ovakvih senzora smeštenih ispod ekrana je i lakša proizvodnja vodootpornih mobilnih uređaja. Prvi uređaji temeljeni na ovoj tehnologiji očekuju se na tržištu na leto sledeće godine.

    Osim spomenute tehnologije senzora ispod ekrana, predstavljana su i još dva bazična senzora otisaka prstiju takođe bazirana na ultrasoničnoj tehnologiji. Oni se mogu smestiti direktno ispod metalnog kućišta ili pak ispod stakla (ne i ispod ekrana). Prvi uređaji temeljeni na ovim senzorima očekuju se na tržištu početkom sledeće godine.

    Na kraju treba naglasiti da je Qualcomm Finger Print Sensors platforma u potpunosti samostalna te za rad ne zahtjeva prisustvo Qualcomm-ovih čipova, što američku tvrtku u budućnosti čini potencijalnim velikim igračem na tržištu senzora otisaka prstiju.
              Note 8 - procurela slika u zaštitnoj maskici   

    Na internet je procurela još jedna slika Note-a 8, koja dolazi od proizvođača dodatne opreme. Ovde ga vidimo u silikonskoj maskici, no ona očito ne skriva konture karakteristične onima na postojećim modelima Galaxy S8 i Galaxy S8 Plus.

    Ono što je zanimljivo je dvostruka kamera na poleđini, dakle i Samsung je napokon podlegao novom trendu, ali u ovom trenutku ne znamo hoće li se fokusirati na optičko povećanje kao iPhone i OnePlus 5 ili nešto drugo.

    Takođe vidimo i čitač otisaka prstiju, koji se nalazi na istom nelogičnom mestu kao i na S-osmicama.

    Naravno, sve uzmite s dozom rezerve jer se radi o neproverenim glasinama, a do službene najave ostala su neka dva meseca, tako da ćemo i zadnju tajnu Note-a 8, ukoliko prethodno ne procuri, saznati upravo tada.
              Evo kako bi trebao da izgleda iPhone 8   

    Glasine o sledećoj generaciji iPhone-a sve su učestalije, a kako i ne bi bile kad se bliži još jedna sezona u kojoj će Apple pokupiti većinu novca u industriji telefona. iPhone 8 bi tako trebao da dođe potpuno redizajniran, budući da ga zadnje tri generacije prati loš glas zbog neinovativnosti i zanemarivanja novih trendova.

    Tako su mnogi nezavnisni dizajneri već sada napravili opstvene rendere novog iPhone-a, temeljeći njegov izgled na svim do sada poznatim detaljima. Fotografije i video koje sada donosi @OnLeaks, prikazuju uređaj kako bi na kraju trebao da izgleda.

    Ako su ove informacije autentične, čini se da je Apple ipak pronašao način za smeštanje čitača otisaka prstiju ispod ekrana, budući da ga ne vidimo na spoljnom delu kućišta. S druge strane, postoje indicije da bi novi iPhone upravo zbog tog prilično zahtevnog zahvata mogao da kasni u dolasku.

              Honda Jazz Indonesia Terbaru, Mesin Turbo Atau Hybrid?   
    Honda Jazz Indonesia, Beberapa waktu lalu PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) diketahui tengah menyiapkan Honda Jazz terbaru. Melihat di negara tetangga, mobil hatchback ini ditawarkan dengan pilihan mesin hybrid. Lantas apakah HPM juga berniat untuk menawarkan Honda Jazz Hybrid di Tanah Air? Sayangnya untuk saat ini agen pemegang merek Honda di Indonesia itu belum mempunyai rencana untuk memasukkan Jazz Hybrid. Honda Prospect Motor lebih memilih mendahulukan teknologi turbo. Seperti yang diketahui, teknologi ini sudah mulai diterapkan pada beberapa mobil Honda yang dijual di Indonesia. Akan tetapi bukan berarti rival Toyota Yaris itu nantinya juga akan dipersenjatai dengan mesin berteknologi turbo, seperti halnya CR-V dan Civic. Melansir dari KompasOtomotif, Jonfis Fandy, Marketing and After Sales Service Director HPM mengatakan bahwa antara hybrid dan turbo sebenarnya tidak bisa dipilih. Keduanya sudah sama-sama berjalan saat ini. “Gini, hybrid itu menjadi teknologi transisi untuk nantinya mobil bisa berjalan tanpa menggunakan bahan bakar, contohnya seperi listrik. Kalau turbo, pengembangan dari mesin konvensional yang menggunakan bahan bakar. Turbo berguna untuk menaikan tenaga dengan menurunkan konsumsi bahan bakar yang bisa menekan gas buang, jadi keduanya tidak bisa dipilih mau yang mana, kita lihat dari sisi benefit untuk konsumen saja,” paparnya. Mengenai Honda Jazz bermesin hibrida, sampai detik ini HPM belum memiliki niat untuk memasarkannya di Indonesia. Begitu juga dengan menawarkan teknologi turbo pada mesin 1.500 cc milik Jazz. Jonfis menerangkan hal tersebut tidak akan menguntungkan bagi konsumen jika dilihat dari segi harga. Alasannya Hodna Jazz yang dijual saat ini mengandalkan mesin 1.500 cc. Apabila menyematkan turbo maka harganya akan menjadi naik karea pajak yang juga bertambah. “Masalahnya mau tidak konsumen bila sudah dipasang turbo harga Jazz misalnya naik Rp 60 juta, tidak ada benefitnya kan, sama juga bila Brio kita pasang turbo jadi mahal,” papar Jonfis. Lain cerita dengan mobil SUV Honda CR-V. Pemakaian turbo pada mesin mobil tersebut memiliki dampak positif. Jonfis menjelaskan, mesin berkapasitas besar mempunyai pajang yang lebih tinggi. Untuk itu ketika diturunkan kapasitasnya maka pajak juga ikut turun. Dengan begitu ada pengalihan menerapkan teknologi turbo yang memberikan keuntungan bagi konsumen. Jonfis menggambarkan, Honda CR-V yang dibekali dengan mesin 2.400 cc mempunyai pajak sebesar 20 persen. Ketika ditawarkan dengan mesin 1.500 cc pajaknya turun 10 persen. “Dari situ ada kompensasi bila kita pasang turbo, jadi antara mesin mesin dan pajak ada kompensasi dan benefit untuk konsumen, kalau di Jazz harga pasti akan mahal,’ jelasnya. Honda Jazz facelift dipastikan akan hadir di Indonesia. Bahkan Jonfis sempat mengatakan bahwa Honda Jazz Indonesia terbaru akan hadir pada tahun ini juga. Hanya saja belum dapat disampaikan kapan mobil tersebut hadir menyapa masyarakat. Dalam waktu dekat akan ada ajang Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2017. Ajang pameran otomotif ini rencananya akan diselenggarakan pada bulan Agustus mendatang. Akan tetapi pihak HPM belum memastikan bahwa Jazz akan diluncurkan pada pameran tersebut. Meski belum ada bocoran seputar spesifikasinya, dijelaskan bahwa Honda Jazz Indonesia akan berbeda dengan yang sudah hadir di Malaysia, Thailand dan Jepang. Tampilan bisa saja sama, akan tetapi untuk tawaran fiturnya berbeda. Alasannya setiap negara mempunyai kebutuhan yang berbeda sehingga tidak bisa dipukul sama rata. Untuk informasi, Honda Jazz facelift bermesin hybrid dirilis di Malaysia pada awal Juni 2017. Tampilan mobil ini tidak jauh berbeda dengan model sebelumnya. Daya tariknya tentu terletak pada mesin hibrida. Disebutkan bahwa Jazz facelift ini dibekali dengan Sporty Hybrid Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive (i-DCD). Teknologi tersebut datang sebagai pengganti dari sistem Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) yang dikombinasikan mesin bensin berkapasitas 1.500 cc. Untuk transmisinya memakai otomatis dual-clutch tujuh percepatan. Mesin 1.500 cc DOHV i-VTEC ini mempunyai tenaga sebesar 110 PS dengan torsi 134 Nm. Jika dipadukan dengan motor listrik Atkinson-Cycle Engine, tenaga yang dihasilkan bisa menembus 137 PS dengan torsi 160 Nm. Untuk mengetahui seperti apa fitur dan spesifikasi Honda Jazz Indonesia, Anda bisa menanti kabar terbaru dari HPM nanti. Semoga saja mobil hatchback ini segera hadir di pasaran.

    Antibacterial soap

    How about a little nerve toxin in your soap? That's what's found in antibacterial soap. It's a toxic cocktail of chemicals designed to kill life. That's how it kills bacteria. The problem is that it also harms people -- especially infants and children who are trying to develop healthy nervous systems. Avoid all products claiming to be "antibacterial."

    You're better off using natural soap (like Miracle II, http://life-enthusiast.com/usa/miracle-ii-m-12.html) and letting your child's immune system fight off common bacteria. The world isn't sterile, after all. You can't turn your house into a germ-free bubble.

    Fluoride in the water

    I've always found it amazing that city water officials were dumb enough to actually buy a toxic waste substance and arrange to have it dripped into the public water supply where it would be ingested by infants and children.

    The result?

    Mass fluorosis and toxicity to children everywhere. Didn't these people realize that fluoride only works topically? (That is, it only works if you rub it on your teeth, then spit it out, and even that only works if you're using natural fluoride, not the chemicals spit out as byproducts of the fertilizer industry, which is what city water departments are buying and dripping into the water supply.)


    The sunscreen industry is a huge scam. Most popular sunscreen products actually cause skin cancer due to the numerous toxic chemicals they contain (which are quickly absorbed into the skin where they cause DNA mutations that lead to cancer).

    Even worse, sunscreen blocks the UV radiation that allows the skin to manufacture all-important vitamin D -- the most powerful anti-cancer nutrient yet known to modern science.

    It prevents over a dozen different cancers, yet parents block it by slathering toxic sunscreen on their children, all while mistakenly believing they're "protecting their children from cancer!" What a scam.

    CHICAGO – A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helps keep the DNA of heart patients from unraveling, which may help explain why fish oil is so beneficial after a heart attack, U.S. researchers said Tuesday. "Cardiologists have known for a long time now that omega-3 fish oil seems to be beneficial for patients with coronary heart disease," said Dr. Ramin Farzaneh-Far of the University of California, San Francisco, whose study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. "A number of studies over the last 20 years or so have shown that after patients have had a heart attack, taking fish oil through diet or supplements is able to reduce the risk of a subsequent heart attack or death from coronary heart disease," Farzaneh-Far said in a telephone interview. What has not been clear is why fish oil is so beneficial. Read more here: Fish Oil and Heart Attacks Each week Martin Pytela and Scott Paton discuss Holistic principles for healthy living.

              How to Get Sick Part Two | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #126   
    Our second episode on how to get sick. 1. Use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, and drink fluoridated water. Fluoride is extremely poisonous-especially the salt-based form used in toothpaste and mouthwash. (Besides, its effectiveness is questionable at best.) A top EPA scientific advisor voiced the opinion that "since recent federal government tests have shown that fluoride appears to cause cancers at levels less than ten times the present maximum contamination level, this would ordinarily require that all additions of fluoride to water supplies be suspended and treatment be instituted to remove naturally occurring fluoride." That would be enough warning for me! (By the way, I have no evidence that the EPA ever suspended fluoridation operations.) Choose nonfluoridated alternatives for oral hygiene and be safe. 2. Use artificial sweeteners and avoid sugars. As bad as sugar can be in its various forms, artificial sweeteners are worse! Some are downright deadly because of their carcinogenic properties and their use it such high-volume products as diet soft drinks and sugar-free foods. Chief among sinners is aspartame, which is marketed as NutraSweet or Equal. Renowned diabetes expert Dr. H. J. Roberts believes there is a clear scientific link between aspartame and increased incidence of brain tumors, seizure disorders, chronic headaches, and hyperactivity in children. As for saccharin, the cancer-causing labels that accompany its use still apply. The newcomer on the block is sucralose (used in Splenda), but the jury of scientific research still seems to be awaiting further testimony on this one. (If the Maker didn't produce it "as is," then it probably isn't much better than the other synthetic sugar substitutes.) 3. Shower every day, but don't bathe (take a bath). Excessive showering-even in the purest water-can actually rob your hair and body of the natural oils.8 It can also alter your body's pH (especially if you're using certain alkaline shampoos and soaps). Then you have the added problem of heavily chlorinated public water supplies (see below). If the Maker has a preference, it might be the use of ritual bathing that combined bathing (washing in a shallow bath) with sprinkling (showering for brief periods). This combination is especially beneficial for the thorough but gentle cleansing recommended for the female genital area. 4. Swim in chlorinated pools (and drink and shower with chlorinated water). Chlorine is an effective bacteria killer, although some strains of bacteria are developing a resistance to chlorine. Unfortunately, chlorine is an indiscriminate killer that kills both friendly and unfriendly bacteria. It also eats through lead pipes, corrodes most metals, and harms cells and DNA strands in virtually every living thing it touches. Chlorine also introduces to our water supplies some highly carcinogenic chemicals called trihalomethanes (THMs). Studies show a strong link between chlorinated water supplies with elevated THM levels and cancers of the bladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, colon, and brain.9 It is risky enough to drink chlorinated tap water, but the mass exposure created by swimming in chlorinated pools or taking extended hot showers in heavily chlorinated water is much more dangerous. (The heat opens skin pores and increases the already high absorption rate of chlorine through the skin.) Dogs exposed to chlorine (this is the ingredient used to bleach white bread) get the running fits, a disorder similar to many psychiatric Each week Martin Pytela and Scott Paton discuss Holistic principles for healthy living.

              The Proto-Indo-European Homeland Puzzle   
    The Indo-European Language Family

    Indo-European was the first language family to be identified. This discovery, and the beginning of modern linguistics, can be dated to February 2, 1786 at a gathering of scientists and other interested men. Sir William Jones, speaking at the Asiatic Society in Calcutta, made this astounding statement:

    The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure: more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either; yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists.

    Jones later added Persian and Celtic as likely members of this family of languages.

    Jones was uniquely qualified to make this discovery. His parental language was Welsh; he was taught English at school; he learned classical Greek and Latin in university where he studied law; he wrote the first English grammar of the Persian language (which earned him a reputation as one of the most respected linguists in Europe); and when appointed a judge in India at age 37 set out to learn the Sanskrit language to better understand local laws. Thus by age 40 Jones was familiar with a language in 6 (out of a total of 12) different Indo-European language branches.

    Indo-European languages are spoken today by over 3 billion people - about half of the world's population - as either a first or second language. These languages are divided into 10 or 12 language branches or subfamilies. See the attached graph (Figure 1.1 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.12) which is arranged more or less geographically. English is a member of the Germanic subfamily along with German, Dutch, Frisian, the Scandinavian languages (which includes Icelandic), Yiddish, and Afrikaans. Other languages to note include:
                Tocharian – two extinct languages found in western China, the farthest East branch
                Hittite – a member of the extinct Anatolian branch – the earliest branch to separate
                Romany – the language of the Gypsies of Europe, is a member of the Indic branch showing that they originated in northwest India (not to be confused with Rumanian which is a member of the Latin or Romance language branch)

    Source: Figure 1.1 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.12

    About 6,000 to 5,000 years ago the parent language, called Proto-Indo-European, was spoken by a semi-nomadic tribe of people in the southern Ukraine and Russia. How their language spread and evolved into all of all these languages could be the subject for a future lecture. Today I want to show how historical linguistics and archaeology were combined to solve the puzzle of who the speakers of Proto-Indo-European were, and where and when they lived.
    Source: Figure 1.2 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.14

    The Proto-Indo-European Homeland Puzzle

    Since the discovery of the IE language family, the location of the homeland of the original speakers has been claimed by different people to be many different places: India, Pakistan, Syria/Lebanon, the Caucasus Mountains, Turkey, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, the Balkans and Germany. By the late 20th century linguists only seriously considered two of these – Anatolia (modern Turkey) and the steppes of southern Ukraine and Russia. And as recently as 2000, Calvert Watkins in his essay “Indo-European and the Indo-Europeans” which introduces his book The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots stated “Archaeologists have not in fact succeeded in locating the Indo-Europeans.”

    Colin Renfrew was a strong supporter of the other serious contender, Anatolia. Renfew's elegant proposal, published in the 1990's, had Proto-Indo-European migrant farmers carry their language along with agriculture from the Middle East to the westernmost part of Europe. But like many elegant theories, this one turned out to be not true. (I was greatly disappointed when linguistics and DNA analysis disproved Thor Heyerdahl's theories of Polynesian origins). There are, as we will see, serious problems with Renfrew's theory.

    Before going further, I need to emphasize one point. Proto-Indo-European is a language. It is not a culture, nor is it a genetically-definable population. Language does not necessarily follow cultural boundaries, which can be determined by archaeology. Every first year archaeology student is taught “pots are not people”. But we know that someone must have spoken this language, and they must have lived in a particular place during a particular time. So while looking for the speakers of Proto-Indo-European we need to be careful of this constraint.
    Clues from the Language

    Since Proto-Indo-European is a language, let's look first at clues to the homeland from the language itself. The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots published in 2000 contains 1350 reconstructed root words and several thousand more words based on these roots. These words have been painstakingly reconstructed by comparing similar words (called cognates) from the daughter languages over the more than 200 years since Jones' discovery. What can we learn about the people who spoke this language from their vocabulary?

    they knew four seasons with snow in winter
    they were not familiar with tropical plants or animals
    animals include: wolf, lynx, elk beaver, otter, mouse, fish
    birds include: crane, goose, duck, eagle, woodpecker
    insects: wasp, hornet, fly, louse, bee, honey (mead)
    domestic animals include: dog, cattle, sheep and horse
    horses play an important role in the culture
    they practiced spinning and weaving of wool
    they knew metallurgy - copper
    they knew of the wheel and used wagons or carts (weak link in Anatolian)
    they knew of boats and oars - words like nav (navigate, navy) and rowing.
    gift exchange is an important part of their culture
    the guest-host relation was important –  *ghosti is the root of both host and guest (ghost originally meant visitor or guest)
    they borrowed words from Proto-Uralic, another Eurasian language family, suggesting that the Proto-Indo-European speakers must have lived close to, and likely traded with, people who spoke Proto-Uralic who then, as now, live in northern Europe and Siberia (Hungarian is a member of this family found in Europe because of recent migration (~900CE).

    The seasons and animals indicate a northern location either in or adjacent to a forest. The words for bee and honey place the homeland west of the Ural Mountains as honeybees do not occur east of there.

    Clues to Dating Proto-Indo-European

    Language can also help place the Proto-Indo-European speakers in time as well as location.

    Agriculture was introduced to Europe between 6700 and 6500 BC while the wheel was not known until 3400 BC and woolen textiles sometime after 4000 BC. For the daughter language families to have similar words for the wheel and wool, they must have separated from Proto-Indo-European after their arrival. This effectively eliminates the Anatolian farmer immigrant theory. Besides, the two or three Anatolian languages were very similar to each other and spoken by only a small number of people in this area, which strongly suggests they are spoken by Indo-European speaking migrants to Anatolia, not by the ancestors of the language.

    The domestication of the horse provides additional clues. Horses were hunted for meat by the people of the steppe for millennia before they were domesticated. They were first domesticated sometime after 4800 BC, a thousand years after cattle were introduced to the area. But they were raised for their meat only. During a cool dry period (4200-3800 BC) horses would have an advantage over cattle because they can forage for themselves during the winter. [Pioneer farmers in Saskatchewan like my grandfather often turned their horses loose for the winter to manage for themselves, rounding them up in the spring]. Riding of horses began on the steppes sometime before 3700 BC and had spread to Northern Kazakhstan, the Caucasus Mountains, and into Europe, by 3000 BC.

    An important tool used in the dating of horse riding is bit wear on horse molars. The identification of tooth wear caused by bits of metal, bone, rope and rawhide, was pioneered by the author of The Horse, The Wheel and Language – David W. Anthony, and his wife, fellow archaeologist Dorcas Brown. There is an interesting Saskatchewan connection here. One of the experts they contacted was Hilary Clayton who began studying the mechanics of bits in horses’ mouths while working in Philadelphia, and then took a job at the Western Veterinarian College in Saskatoon. Anthony and Brown followed her to Saskatchewan in 1985 and viewed the X-ray videos she had made of horses chewing their bits.

    Riding horses provided a significant benefit to herders in the steppes. A man on horseback could manage a herd of cattle or sheep much larger than a man on foot. With the much later advent of wheeled carts, about 3300 BC, the herders could carry with them tents, food and water allowing them to take advantage of the vast areas between the river valleys. This opened up the steppe much as the horse did to the plains of North America 5,000 years later.

    Dating the Daughters

    Language provides clues to timing in another way. Linguists can date, with more or less certainty, when each of the daughter language branches separated from the mother language. Here is a list of the branches, in the order of separation, with the approximate date (all BC) of separation (from Figure 3.2 The Horse, The Wheel and Language p. 57).

                Anatolian        4200
                Tocharian       3700 - 3300
                Germanic        3300
                Celtic / Italic   3000
                Greek / Armenian 2500
                Balto-Slavic    2500
                Indo-Iranian    2500-2200

    Clues from Archaeology – The Kurgan Cultures

    With the time line narrowed to the period 4000 to 2000 BC, it's time to look at the archaeological record and see who was living in the likely homelands and how well they fit with the linguistic clues. The archaeology of the Pontic-Caspian steppes was mostly carried out by Soviet scientists and published in Russian. These were not translated into English until the 1990s. Anthony was one of the first western archaeologists to study this work and relate it to the Proto-Indo-European homeland question.

    Anthony found a close fit with the western steppe peoples who built huge burial mounds called kurgans. Their culture varied somewhat over the Proto-Indo-European time line and also geographically from place to place within this large area, but their overall cultures were similar, especially compared to the foragers to the north and east and to the sophisticated farming cultures to the west and south. They were semi-nomadic, raising cattle and sheep. Horses were important both for meat and for riding to manage their growing herds. They used wheeled carts. They mined their own ore and made their own tools and weapons of copper, tin and bronze.

    Even more compelling is the evidence, from archaeology, of known migrations out of the steppes in the right directions and at the right times to account for the birth of the daughter language families.

    1) to the west 4200-3900 (Anatolian)
    2) to the east 3700-3300 (Tocharian)
    3) to the west - several waves (Germanic, Celtic, Italic)
    4) to north (Baltic, Slavic)
    5) to the east and south (Iranian, Indic)

    I should explain that by migration I do not mean large scale movement of people displacing existing populations along with their culture and language. This may have been the case with the Pre-Tocharians who made a remarkably long migration in one jump to the Altai Mountains 2000 km to the east (equivalent to the journey made by my grandparents from southern Ontario to Saskatchewan, but without the advantage of trains). Most if not all the other migrations were by small groups who, through some combination of trade or intimidation, became rulers of existing populations. They brought with them enough of their culture to be recognized archaeologically; and they brought their language which, for a variety of reasons, was adopted by the others and continued to spread long after they were gone.
    Puzzle Solved

    While there may be a few objections to his theory not yet satisfactorily answered, Anthony is convinced that the Proto-Indo-European Homeland puzzle has been solved.

    Source: Figure 5.1 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.84

    I want to finish with a quote from The Horse, The Wheel and Language  p. 464

    Understanding the people who lived before us is difficult, particularly the people who lived in the prehistoric tribal past. Archaeology throws a bright light on some aspects of their lives but leaves much in the dark. Historical linguistics can illuminate a few of those dark corners.

              Beskućnika je sve više i nisu ničiji problem   

    U Leskovcu ne postoji ni jedna institucija sitema koja vodi evidenciju koliko zapravo Leskovčana luta ulicama grada, a skitnice su „zaposele“ prostor ispred „Kraša“ i stanari okolnih zgrada tvrde da nikome ne dozvoljavaju da se odmori na novopostavljenim klupicama koje su pretvorili u svoj improvazovani dom.

    Oko 18.000 ljudi u Srbiji vode se kao beskućnici, a čak četvrtina njih su deca ispod 14 godina

    Stanari iz obližnjeg solitera iznad „Kraša“ kažu da nekoliko skitnica tu boravi već duže vreme i da su taj deo centra grada pretvorili u pravo đubrište od raznih kesa koje su dovukli sa sobom.

    Ljudi koji bi da se odmore na klupama ne mogu da ih koriste. Osim tiga, ovo je  strogi centar grada i slika je jako ružna. Par puta smo se za pomoć obraćali policajcima, molili ih da ih sklone, ali oni su nam kazali da to nije njihov posao“, priča nam Leskovčanin koji živi u ovom soliteru.

    Direktor Centra za socijalni rad Boban Ilić priznao je pre nekoliko meseci novinaru Jugmedie da su skitnice sve veći problem celog socijalnog sistema u Srbiji i da, na žalost, na lokalu ne postoje ustanove za prihvat takvih lica.

    Kao država se nalazimo u procesu deinstitucionalizacije takvih lica, a sa druge strane, sistem nije lokalnim samoupravama obezbedio mogućnost i načine da zbrine takva lica i da im pruži adekvatnu pomoć. Zbog toga, imaćemo sve veći broj lutalica na ulicama„, upozorio je Ilić.

    Prema zvaničnim podacima iz poslednjeg popisa, u Srbiji 445 ljudi bukvalno nema nikakav krov nad glavom i živi u parkovima, ispod mostova i na ulici. Još 17.842 njih spada u sekundarne beskućnike: žive u kartonskim i nehigijenskim naseljima koja sutra mogu da budu srušena, bez struje, kanalizacije i vode. Spavaju i u šupama, podrumima, barakama, šahtovima... Od toga, četvrtina njih su deca mlađa od 14 godina (23 odsto). Zanimljivo je i to što se 58 odsto beskućnika izjasnilo kao Srbi, a 32 odsto kao Romi.

              Could studying deaf horses shed light on treatment in humans?   

    Over the years, Chemistry Prof. Koren Lipsett has owned and rescued horses. Today, they are a focus of her research on deafness in humans.

    “My research lab focuses on genomic studies so we can understand human disease,” said Lipsett.

    Prof. LipsettSo far, Lipsett and her students have looked at blind cats, fibroblast growth factor (hair length) in cattle, and for the past seven years, deafness in horses. They hope by researching these issues and genetic diseases in large mammals, it will help researchers better understand how to treat human genetic disorders, like congenital blindness and deafness.

    Suzanne E. DiNello-Schleicher ’10, a biology and chemistry double major who is today a veterinarian, was the inspiration behind the horse project. One day in Lipsett’s lab, she was doing some preliminary research on the Internet and came across a story about a deaf colt.

    “Because she’s a horse person and a vet person, she said, ‘maybe we can pursue this,’” said Lipsett. “Well it turns out the family that owned that particular horse also had the parents and siblings in this pedigree of Spanish Mustangs. Not just one offspring was deaf. There were two deaf offspring that came from the same stallion and two different mares. So that started the project.”

    Working with larger mammals has its benefits, Lipsett says. For one, large mammals, as opposed to mice and rats, live longer. If, during transitional research, researchers are completing a treatment study, this allows scientists to study long-term implications. It’s humane: Lipsett uses hair plucked from the horse’s mane. It’s convenient: she uses her own horse and horses from the SPCA as experimental controls. She is currently working with a family from Virginia who owned deaf horses with white coats and blue eyes—the phenotype that studies have shown to correlate with deafness in other animals, like the Siberian Husky.

    This knowledge helped Lipsett’s lab narrow down their focus to a candidate gene called the KIT gene.

    Prof. Lipsett in the lab

    “In [other cases of mammals] that had deafness, white pigmentation, and blue eyes, it has come down to the KIT gene,” said Lipsett. “That particular gene is complex, but that’s not the only one that has been found—there are 5 or 6 genes that we identified as candidate genes. And our job is to methodically go through, sequencing those genes, to see if we can find the mutation.”

    The process involves examining the gene’s exons, the segments of the DNA that contain the coding information, or set of instructions, that translate to the protein of interest, for example.

    Benjamin Gantz ’16 was responsible for examining exon-21 in the KIT gene. They ran into several issues with designing primers, which is the first step to sequencing a gene.

    “Ben got to a point where we understood where the problem was, and by the time he graduated we a had a good understanding of what to do next,” said Lipsett.

    “Ben would say, ‘wow, I’m doing real science,’ and I’d say, ‘You've been doing real science the whole time!’ Because you need to think outside the box. There’s no canned answer.”

    “Many students have worked on this project before me. It was amazing to be able to pick up where they left off and continue this research,” echoed Gantz. “In independent research labs like Dr. Lipsett's, you are determining the answers to questions that no one on the planet knows. Other scientists may use our research to further their own understanding or study, but our findings will be a starting point for them.”

    Over the years, several students have worked on pieces of the project that have been published, like Kaytie Innamorati ’14, who is currently conducting research on Alzheimer’s Disease as a Ph.D. candidate at Drexel University. She is listed as a co-author on the abstract, “Determining the genetic basis of equine deafness via candidate gene studies.” Also, Alecia Achimovich ’16, a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Virginia, is a co-author with Kaytie on a recent abstract.

    Prof. Koren Lipsett working in the lab

    Today, Lipsett says the research is at the point where they have narrowed down which genes to focus on, and now it’s about consolidating the data order to identify a putative gene mutation. As with the blind cat study, the next step will be to explore the mechanism of pathology that will help define how the gene mutation translated to disease symptoms like blindness or deafness.

    “We care about this because we can directly correlate it to human studies,” said Lipsett. “The more we understand the gene function in a mammal model, the more likely we can understand the equivalent function in humans. Then, we can apply that knowledge to characterize and potentially treat the genetic disorder.”

    A biological career pathway

    Lipsett didn’t start working with DNA until she came to Gettysburg. But looking at her journey, the path to that research seemed inevitable.

    “I loved biochemistry in college,” she said. “I didn’t do genomics, I did protein studies. It’s related to the biological system, and that’s what’s exciting to me. My work evolved slowly, as in any research career. You don’t necessarily stay in the same track, but your research takes you down new tracks and lets you solve cool new problems.”

    Prof. Koren LipsettDuring Lipsett’s postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, she studied metabolic pathways at the genomic level and how specific genes, and the gene products, participate in a given biological pathway. She and her colleagues worked on identifying the gene corresponding to an enzyme involved in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in fungus, furthering their understanding of the pathways in natural product biosynthesis. For example, aflatoxins are a family of carcinogenic toxins that are produced by fungi and can be found contaminating grain and peanuts (peanut butter). Aflatoxin can cause liver cancer. In the United States, we screen our crops for the contaminant, but other countries might not.

    “My interest is studying these pathways,” she said. Because nature produces antifungal, anticancer and antibacterial agents, she asks questions like, What structural features of the molecule inhibit growth, and How can we modify and make a better antifungal [agent]?

    “By applying knowledge gained from understanding the biosynthetic pathway, and the genes involved in that pathway, one can learn from nature and perhaps make the next new therapeutic drug based on that knowledge,” she said. “Learning from nature is really cool!”

    Lipsett describes herself as “jumping” into mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial genomic studies began with looking at genomic variations in mitochondrial DNA, some of which have been identified as causing mitochondrial myopathies.

    Plucking Patent

    This past January, Lipsett received some exciting news: A letter notifying her that she was issued a United States patent for the “Isolation and Characterization of a Single Mitochondron.”

    Lipsett explained that one characteristic of mitochondria is that it contains multiple copies of the mitochondrial genome, and each cell can contain many mitochondria.

    “If there is a mutation in one copy of the genome, and there are 100 copies total, the other 99 copies are fine,” she said. “So why should one copy interfere with the cell?” Her questions led to studies to learn more about how that one modified copy becomes the predominant version, and therefore, causative of mitochondrial disease symptoms.

    She and her colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designed a technique using what is described as “optical tweezers” that can trap and then isolate a single mitochodrion using an infrared laser.  

    Lipsett decided to apply for the patent after speaking with one of her former research students.

    “Christian Bauer ’97, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, went to get his master’s in forensic science,” said Lipsett. Bauer continued his education and became a patent attorney. “He was visiting to speak with students for a career panel, and he said, ‘apply for a patent—that’s intellectual property!’”

    Lipsett switched gears and began examining nuclear—as opposed to the mitochondrial—genomic variations. During a sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, her research path transitioned to examining pedigrees of large mammals in order to identify the gene responsible for a specific disease.

    “I like learning new tools for finding that needle in the haystack, that Eureka moment,” she said. “We haven’t found it yet in the deafness project, but we’ve gathered enough information from this deaf horse study to think it’s more complex than just one gene.”

    Тихо над полями,
    день бринить піснями,
    молодими хорами,
    щирими бадьорими,
    серце звеселя.

    Ллється переливами
    радість понад нивами,
    радісно всміхається,
    росами вмивається
    рідная земля.

    Тихою ходою
    в поле із сапою
    вийшла юна дівчина,
    радісна, заквітчана
    дивиться удаль.

    Вітрами обвіяна,
    ніжна і замріяна,
    коси розвіваються,
    очі посміхаються,
    світлі, як хрусталь.

    Хмари над полями,
    в небі, наче плями,
    в серці обзивається
    пісня голосна.

    Це ж моя прекрасна,
    мов зоря незгасна,
    в битвах завойована,
    в праці загартована
    рідна сторона.

              American Society for Parasitology, Day 4   
    These are my notes from talks I saw on Friday's sessions!

    R Grunberg gave a very nice talk about whether parasite abundance (density) scales with body size (Damuth’s Law). Her data suggests not. But host body size comes into play: if you do that, the parasites follow Damuth's Law. How you feed and disperse tweaks the effect a little.

    Janine Caira: This project started with a donation of a huge, awesome army ant collection. Over 500 species were associated with just one species of army ant – guests associated with the army. Lots of ectoparasites live on specific parts of specific species. This prompted a lot of outreach at her campus, around the tag line, “Be our guest.” Antu.uconn.edu

    Jessica Light: surveyed parasites on property in South Texas, supported by East Foundation. Not many mammals in museum collections are from South Texas. #collectionsareessential Found 19 mammal species, about 70% parasitized. Tick borne diseases are particularly interesting.

    Niyomi Wijerardena: pika parasites! Pikas have five very distinct lineages, but the endoparasites don’t track those lineages. What about the ectoparasites? Fleas don’t track those lineages either, suggesting ancient contact between pika populations that are not recorded in DNA.

    LIjun Lu is doing transcriptome work on what makes snail resistant to infection by schistomes.

    Lauren Bassett was looking at the genetics of a microsporidium that is a potential biocontrol for red invasive fire ants.

    Maria Castillo is also studying protein expression related to schistosomiasis infection of the snails. Thioester containing proteins seem to be related to resistance to various kinds of infection.

    Presidential lecture by Gerald (Jerry) Esch. Described three stories, each of decades long and filled with obstacles from fights, fallacies, and waiting for blind luck, to emphasize the long road that research faces. He ended saying, “What does the future hold? I don’t know. But neither did the researchers who founded the field of parasitology 150 years ago.”

    Michael Zimmerman starts describing the mating system of bluegill sunfish, which has dominant alpha males and beta males, which perform “drive by insemination.” Parasites may contribute to the maintenance of these two forms. The alpha males had higher diversity and abundance of parasites than beta males or females.

    Nicci Carpenter: Helminths reduce fitness in mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis, also known as the plague fish)mosquito fish. The nematodes reduce brood size, and parasite diversity reduces embryo size.

    Victor Vidal Martinez: healthy ecosystems have more parasites. Studying parasites on the fish on the Mexican portion of the Gulf of Mexico, which are subject to pollutants. Saw a higher diversity of parasites off the Yucatan Peninsula, which is good! It indicates a a healthier ecosystem than in the rest of the Mexican region of the Gulf.

    Isabel Caballero: Although the cestode species she studies are definitely inbred, they show no strong evidence of inbreeding depression. 

    Stephen Greiman (@sgreimanbio): what drives species interactions now and in the past? He points out that when you look at just the top ten museum for mammal species, there are literally millions of samples in just those ten institutions. Using next generation sequencing, he was able to use next generation DNA sequencing to identify known parasites in shrews. Different sequences were slightly better at resolving some groups than others.

    Seth Bromage: Bluegill and pumpkinseed sunfish are about the same size, but very different parasite infection patterns. The same species, U. dispar, is bigger on bluegill. Seth filled his talk with speculation, because “It’s fun for me.”

    P Robison: For fish, salinity is a major environmental factor that limits distribution. Guppies will tolerate salty water in an aquarium, but you never find them in any salty water in the wild. Metacercaria are very high near the range limit, but rare near the center of the distribution (further from ocean). Exposure to brackish water killed more fish, and resulted in a higher parasite load, for the guppies. 

    John Shea: How do horsehair worms find each other to reproduce in hosts? Blood borne parasites can potentially have miles of blood vessels to search. It looks like in aquariums, there is substantial luck involved. But it looks a little better in lower water depth, with more evidence of successful mate detection.

    Justin Wilcox: Most parasitologists think most animals are parasites, but that is just a hunch. He tested the hypothesis that parasite diversity will be comparable to free living microbial communities, using  parasites in macaques and next generation sequencing. Diversity of parasites and free living species is comparable. And there is a lot of diversity in these macaques.

    Matt Bolek: presenting work of master’s student Chelsie Pierce. How do amphibian tadpoles differ from the adults in their parasites? Tadpoles are herbivores, e.g., and adults are carnivores: very different parasite habitats. Tadpole size, just like adults, affects parasite communities. Difficult to compare species, because the tadpoles’ basic natural history is so different. But parasite life cycle strategies were major factors in determining community structure.

    Charles Criscione: The goal is to try to work out mating systems in parasite systems in the wild, and the particular focus here is on inbreeding. We know little about the ecological drivers of parasite mating systems. Looking at gecko tapeworms, which probably have high inbreeding. But, as mentioned in Isabel’s talk, not evidence of inbreeding depression.

    The day ended with a student/faculty mixer, which the organizers called “The Vortex.” It was a good  idea, although it might have done with a little more room.

              Using high-throughput DNA sequencing, genetic fingerprinting, and quantitative PCR as tools for monitoring bloom-forming and toxigenic cyanobacteria in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, 2013 and 2014   

    Monitoring the community structure and metabolic activities of cyanobacterial blooms in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, is critical to lake management because these blooms degrade water quality and produce toxic microcystins that are harmful to humans, domestic animals, and wildlife. Genetic tools, such as DNA fingerprinting by terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analysis, high-throughput DNA sequencing (HTS), and real-time, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), provide more sensitive and rapid assessments of bloom ecology than traditional techniques. The objectives of this study were (1) to characterize the microbial community at one site in Upper Klamath Lake and determine changes in the cyanobacterial community through time using T-RFLP and HTS in comparison with traditional light microscopy; (2) to determine relative abundances and changes in abundance over time of toxigenic Microcystis using qPCR; and (3) to determine relative abundances and changes in abundance over time of Aphanizomenon, Microcystis, and total cyanobacteria using qPCR. T-RFLP analysis of total cyanobacteria showed a dominance of only one or two distinct genotypes in samples from 2013, but results of HTS in 2013 and 2014 showed more variations in the bloom cycle that fit with the previous understanding of bloom dynamics in Upper Klamath Lake and indicated that potentially toxigenic Microcystis was more prevalent in 2014 than in years prior. The qPCR-estimated copy numbers of all target genes were higher in 2014 than in 2013, when microcystin concentrations also were higher. Total Microcystis density was shown with qPCR to be a better predictor of late-season increases in microcystin concentrations than the relative proportions of potentially toxigenic cells. In addition, qPCR targeting Aphanizomenon at one site in Upper Klamath Lake indicated a moderate bloom of this species (corresponding to chlorophyll a concentrations between approximately 75 and 200 micrograms per liter) from mid-June to mid-August, 2014. After August 18, the Aphanizomenon bloom was overtaken by Microcystis late in the season as microcystin concentrations peaked. Overall, results of this study showed how DNA-based, genetic methods may provide rapid and sensitive diagnoses for the presence of toxigenic cyanobacteria and that they are useful for general monitoring or ecological studies and identification of cyanobacterial community members in complex aquatic habitats. These same methods can also be used to simultaneously address spatial (horizontal and vertical) and temporal variation and under different conditions. Additionally, with some modifications, the same techniques can be applied to different sample types, including water, sediment, and tissue.

    Because there exists no area of human activity that couldn't benefit from more paternalistic attention ... Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Federal Communications Commission to your Web browser.

    Congressional Democrats cannot find the votes to pass "network neutrality." No problem. Three unelected officials will impose rules on hundreds of millions of satisfied online consumers. A federal appeals court stops the FCC from employing authority over the Internet. Again, not a problem. Three out of five FCC commissioners can carve out some temporary wiggle room, because, as any crusading technocrat knows, the most important thing is getting in the door.

    It's not that we don't need the FCC's meddling (or worse); it's that we don't need the FCC at all. Rather than expanding the powers—which always seem to grow—of this outdated bureaucracy, Congress should be finding ways to eliminate it.

    Why would we want a prehistoric bureaucracy overseeing one of the past century's great improvements? As a bottom-up, unregulated, and "under-taxed" market in which technological innovation, free speech, and competition thrive—at affordable prices, no less—the Internet poses a crisis of ideology, not commerce, for the FCC.

    It's about control and relevance. What else can explain the proactive rescue of the Web from capitalistic abuses that reside exclusively in the imaginations of a handful of progressive ideologues?

    What is the FCC doing? It's complicated, and in some ways, it's irrelevant. It claims that regulatory power will ensure that consumers enjoy an "open Internet." (With more broadband providers than ever, is there anything more open than the Internet?) But the FCC can censor speech. And once the FCC can regulate Internet service providers, those providers will be more compliant and more interested in making censors happy.

    The FCC also can hand out favors that hurt competition. And as Lawrence Lessig, a professor at Harvard Law School, wrote in 2008, "economic growth requires innovation. Trouble is, Washington is practically designed to resist it. Built into the DNA of the most important agencies created to protect innovation, is an almost irresistible urge to protect the most powerful instead."

    Even as Chairman Julius Genachowski claims that he will employ a "light touch," the FCC leaves open the possibility that it will use the Title II docket to classify broadband as a public utility—and, as you know, nothing says progress and modernization like "utility."

    The same organization that forced all consumers to buy Ma Bell-made telephones for decades, the same FCC that enforced speech codes via radio "fairness doctrines," the same FCC that took two decades after its invention to OK cellular technology for the marketplace and acted similarly sluggishly with cable and satellite innovation has no business online. It has a history of hurting consumers, not protecting them. (Unless you need protection from fleeting expletives and the once-a-decade nipple controversy.)

    It is likely that a new Congress—or perhaps the courts—will undo this regulatory power play. And though "net neutrality," or "open Internet" (no one needs to worry; doublespeak is still flourishing), may not survive, it reminds us that the FCC's institutional positions conflict with the vibrancy and freedom of the Internet.

    Positions that are as archaic as they are detrimental.

     “Conspiracy theorists concentrate their time on transmuting the "base matter" of current events, official stories, propaganda and public relations into the gleaming golden truth buried within. They do this through the very right-brained activity of uncovering and inventing connections between disparate elements.
    They create story-systems to understand and explain events - essentially a religious activity. For whatever reason, it’s much easier for us to deal with our internal contents by projecting them into the world around us. These outward signs inevitably become carriers of the archetypal content and psychodrama latent in the seeker.
    Conspiracy theory also overcomes the strictures of literalism and the problems of simplistic thinking by experimenting with multiplicity of meaning. Ordinary events, people and signs become symbols bristling with complex, malleable, even contradictory meanings. Mystery is revived and idealized. Facts become more than the sum of their parts. Theory becomes poetry and even theology.”

    Rabarbar pod kruszonką

    Autor: Halina Joskowska Opublikowano: 11 czerwca 2016 r. Rabarbar pod kruszonką jest dla mnie absolutną sezonową fascynacją. Intensywnie cierpki mieniący się barwami zieleni, otulony rumianymi okruszkami, w którym mamy mnogość smaków i faktur. Kwaśność jest równoważona kryształkami słodyczy i wanilii, a miękkość przeplata się z chrupkością. To jedna z tych kombinacji smakowych, która sprawia, że czujemy się jak w niebie. Najlepsza jeszcze gorąca, kiedy kruszonka pięknie pachnie i przyjemnie chrupie.
    Można podać z lodami waniliowymi, bitą śmietaną albo zimnym gęstym jogurtem. Ja zaserwowałam deser z mocno waniliowym mleczno-jajecznym sosem custard, do którego dodałam przekrojoną wzdłuż laskę wanilii, żeby maleńkie czarne ziarenka upstrzyły gładki żółty krem. Rabarbar pod kruszonką to niezawodny sposób na prosty i pyszny deser, a dodatek sosu przemienił go w wyrafinowaną ucztę dla kubków smakowych :-) Atutem tej pyszności jest fakt, że można ją wykonać z wszystkimi owocami sezonowymi. 
    Rabarbar pod kruszonką Autor opinii: Halina Joskowska, data przesłania: 10 czerwca
    Aromatyczny rabarbar pod kruszonką!!! 
    Ten deser posiada wiele walorów, a to z tego względu, iż rabarbar jest dobrym źródłem beta-karotenu, potasu, fosforu oraz magnezu. Jest niskokaloryczny, dlatego też to doskonała przekąska dla osób chcących pozbyć się nadmiernych kilogramów - polecam :-) 
    Oceny: 5,0 
    Czas przygotowania: 30 min 
    Czas pieczenia: 40 min 
    Łączny czas: 1 godz. i 10 min 
    Liczba porcji: 10 porcji 
    Rozmiar porcji: 1 średni kawałek 


    Przepis pochodzi z książki "Nigella ucztuje" :-) 
    • zielony rabarbar (może być różowy): 1 kg 
    • drobny cukier: 50 g 
    • masło: 1 łyżka 
    • ekstrakt waniliowy: 1 łyżka 
    • skrobia kukurydziana: 1 łyżka 
    • mąka pszenna: 150 g 
    • proszek do pieczenia: 1 łyżeczka 
    • niesolone masło, zimne i pokrojone w kostkę: 110 g 
    • cukier waniliowy albo zwykły: 3 łyżki 
    • cukier trzcinowy demerara: 3 łyżki 
    Sos Custard: 
    • śmietanka kremówka 36 % (użyłam Łaciatej): 250 ml 
    • mleko 3,2 %: 250 ml 
    • laska wanilii: 1 
    • żółtka jaj: 5 
    • drobny cukier: 1 łyżka 


    • piekarnik rozgrzewam do 190oC i wsuwam do niego blachę do pieczenia (pod naczynie, w którym będzie się zapiekać rabarbar, żeby mogły na nią skapywać owocowe soki) 
    • rozgrzewam rondel i mieszam w nim pokrojony rabarbar, cukier, masło, ekstrakt waniliowy i skrobię kukurydzianą 
    • podgrzewam około 5 minut, aż masło się stopi i wszystkie składniki się połączą 
    • przekładam rabarbar do żaroodpornego naczynia* tę czynność można zrobić na długo przed pieczeniem, warto jak najszybciej mieć tę część przygotowań za sobą, podobnie jak wymieszanie kruszonki 
    • samą kruszonkę można zagnieść wcześniej i wstawić do lodówki albo zamrażarki, nie trzeba jej rozmrażać przed posypaniem rabarbaru i zapieczeniem 
    • wsypuję do miski mąkę i proszek do pieczenia i zagniatam palcami z pokrojonym zimnym masłem
    • kruszonka powinna przypominać konsystencją grubo mielone płatki owsiane 
    • mieszam kruszonkę widelcem z obydwoma rodzajami cukru i posypuję rabarbar równą warstwą aż po same krawędzie naczynia, żeby za dużo soku nie wykipiało w czasie pieczenia 
    • wstawiam naczynie na blachę w piekarniku i piekę 35-45 minut 
    • trochę zielonych soków wypłynie nawet mimo pokrycia owoców sporą ilością kruszonki, ale tak właśnie ma być; kruszonka zaś miejscami mocno się przypiecze 
    Sos Custard: 
    • do niedużego rondla wlewam śmietanę i mleko 
    • przecinam laskę wanilii wzdłuż na pół i zeskrobuję do rondla część ziarenek czubkiem ostrego noża - najlepiej trzymać strączek nad rondlem, przeciąć go kuchennymi nożyczkami, wzdłuż prawie do samego końca i tymi samymi nożyczkami wydłubać ze środka trochę ziarenek 
    • wrzucam też do mleka ze śmietaną całą laskę wanilii doprowadzam płyn prawie do wrzenia, zdejmuję z ognia i odstawiam na 20 minut, żeby przeszedł aromatem wanilii 
    • ubijam w misce żółtka z cukrem i zalewam waniliową śmietanką, stale mieszając trzepaczką 
    • myję rondel (wystarczy przepłukać i wytrzeć kuchenną ściereczką) i przelewam do niego nieugotowany sos 
    • napełniam zlew do połowy zimną wodą 
    • gotuję sos na średnim ogniu , mając obok zlew z zimną wodą, żeby wstawić rondel do wody, gdyby custard miał się ściąć 
    • jeżeli zacznie się rozwarstwiać, wstaw rondel szybko do zimnej wody i mieszaj trzepaczką, żeby zapobiec katastrofie - świadomość, że woda jest pod ręką, sprawia, że ma się więcej pewności i odwagi 
    • stawiam rondel z sosem na niewielkim ogniu i mieszam, aż zgęstnieje 
    • pożądana gęstość zależy od naszych preferencji
    • w każdej chwili można powiedzieć "stop" 
    • jeśli w czasie gotowania, które powinno trwać jakieś 8 minut albo nieco dłużej, obawiasz się dużego ognia - sos zacznie wrzeć, zdejmij go z ognia i energicznie wymieszaj trzepaczką, wstawiając rondel do zimnej wody, gdy tylko uznasz, że sos powinien się przestać gotować natychmiast , a nawet kilka sekund wcześniej 
    • na koniec wyjmuję z rondla kawałki laski wanilii i przelewam sos do dzbanka 
    • aby zapobiec tworzeniu się kożucha, szczelnie przykrywam sos plastikową folią, chodzi o to, aby folia przylegała do powierzchni sosu i krawędzi dzbanka
     * rabarbar można od razu włożyć do naczynia, w którym deser zostanie zapieczony, a kruszonkę przygotować zawczasu i przechować w oddzielnym pojemniku, nie należy nakładać kruszonki na rabarbar, żeby nie nasiąkła - można to zrobić dopiero przed samym wstawieniem do piekarnika, moim zdaniem nie ma znaczenia, na ile odstawimy upieczony deser przed podaniem; jest smaczny w każdej temperaturze, warto jednak odczekać przynajmniej przepisowy kwadrans

    Smacznego :-)

              ΕΙΔΗΣΕΙΣ ΤΗΣ ΗΜΕΡΑΣ 1/7/2017   

    =ΤΣΙΠΡΑΣ ΓΙΑ ΤΗΝ  ΥΓΕΙΑ. «Η κατάσταση της Δημόσιας Υγείας, όταν το 2015 παραλάβαμε τη διακυβέρνηση, ήταν κάτι παραπάνω από κρίσιμη. Στα όρια της κατάρρευσης. Όχι από αδυναμία απέναντι στις μνημονιακές υποχρεώσεις, ούτε από ανικανότητα ή αδιαφορία. «Έγινε συνειδητά και στοχευμένα με ιδεολογικού χαρακτήρα επιλογές προκειμένου να ανοίξει το πεδίο στα ιδιωτικά συμφέροντα του χώρου».
     «Πολύ πριν την κρίση, η Υγεία ήταν προνομιακός χώρος για κατασπατάληση πόρων, για προκλητικές υπερτιμολογήσεις φαρμάκων και προμηθειών, για βρώμικες συναλλαγές και αλισβερίσια. Μια διαρκής λεηλασία εξωφρενικής κλίμακας του δημόσιου συμφέροντος, με πρώτα θύματα τα ασφαλιστικά ταμεία και τον κρατικό προϋπολογισμό»
    = ΜΟΣΚΟΒΙΣΙ. «Το κυβερνών αριστερό κόμμα της Ελλάδας, ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, δεν μπορεί να θεωρείται λαϊκίστικο κόμμα, διότι έχει κάνει σκληρές επιλογές και έχει εφαρμόσει δύσκολες μεταρρυθμίσεις προκειμένου η χώρα να παραμείνει στην Ευρωζώνη» δήλωσε ο επίτροπος Πιερ Μοσκοβισί μιλώντας σε ημερίδα που οργάνωσε στις Βρυξέλλες το Ίδρυμα Ευρωπαϊκών Προοδευτικών Σπουδών.
    = ΩΡΑ ΑΠΟΦΑΣΕΩΝ. Οι συνιδρυτές της «Ώρας Αποφάσεων», Γιάννης Δατσέρης, Άννα Διαμαντοπούλου, Δημήτρης Κατσαντώνης, Μιλτιάδης Νεκτάριος και Γιώργος Φλωρίδης, με κοινή τους δήλωση αναφέρουν ότι ο Γιάννης Ραγκούσης αποχώρησε από την «Ώρα Αποφάσεων», μετά την απόφασή του να αποδεχθεί τη πρόσκληση και να παραστεί στο συνέδριο της Δημοκρατικής Συμπαράταξης.
    = ΤΖΑΝΑΚΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ. Η κεντροαριστερά θα κριθεί από τις επιλογές που θα κάνει στη σημερινή ιστορική καμπή και δεν υπάρχει η πολυτέλεια των ίσων αποστάσεων, της ουδετερότητας και των σχεδίων εθνικής συνεννόησης, τόνισε ο υπουργός Επικρατείας και κυβερνητικός εκπρόσωπος Δημήτρης Τζανακόπουλος στον χαιρετισμό που απηύθυνε στο συνέδριο της Δημοκρατικής Συμπαράταξης.
    = ΠΟΤΑΜΙ. «Το Ποτάμι έχει στο DNA του τη συνεργασία και το διάλογο. Όμως αυτά έχουν μια ελάχιστη προϋπόθεση: Ο ένας να σέβεται τον άλλο». Με τη φράση του αυτή, απευθύνθηκε στο συνέδριο της Δημοκρατικής Συμπαράταξης ο επικεφαλής του Ποταμιού, Σταύρος Θεοδωράκης.
    = ΜΗΤΣΟΤΑΚΗΣ. «Σήμερα είναι, περισσότερο παρά ποτέ, απαραίτητο να συνεννοηθούμε στα μεγάλα, στα δύσκολα. Σε αυτά που τα χρόνια της κρίσης έγιναν ακόμα πιο δύσκολα», τόνισε ο Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης απευθύνοντας χαιρετισμό στο συνέδριο της Δημοκρατικής Συμπαράταξης. «Βρίσκομαι εδώ για να δείξω -να δείξουμε όλοι μας- ότι μπορούμε και πρέπει να συνομιλούμε και να αναζητούμε συγκλίσεις για το παρόν και το μέλλον του τόπου μας», είπε.

    = ΝΕΑ ΥΟΡΚΗ. Ένας γιατρός σκοτώθηκε και πολλοί άλλοι συνάδελφοί του δίνουν μάχη για να κρατηθούν στη ζωή μετά την επίθεση ενός άνδρα με τουφέκι εφόδου σε νοσοκομείο στο Μπρονξ χθες Παρασκευή, ανακοίνωσε ο δήμαρχος της Νέας Υόρκης Μπιλ ντε Μπλέιζιο. Ο δήμαρχος της Νέας Υόρκης είπε ακόμη ότι ο δράστης της επίθεσης είναι νεκρός. Εκτίμησε ότι το «μεμονωμένο» αυτό περιστατικό μοιάζει να σχετίζεται «με τη δουλειά του». 
    = ΤΟΥΡΚΙΑ. Τηλεφωνικές συνομιλίες είχε την Παρασκευή ο Ρετζέπ Ταγίπ Ερντογάν με τον αμερικανό πρόεδρο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ και τον ρώσο ομόλογό του Βλαντιμίρ Πούτιν. Στο επίκεντρο της συζήτησης Ερντογάν - Τραμπ βρέθηκε η διπλωματική κρίση που έχει ξεσπάσει μεταξύ αραβικών κρατών και του Κατάρ. Ερντογάν και Πούτιν συζήτησαν για την κατάσταση στη Συρία.
    = ΓΕΡΜΑΝΙΑ. Μετά τον θάνατο του Καγκελαρίου της Επανένωσης, πολιτικές και προσωπικές «πληγές» του παρελθόντος έρχονται ξανά στο προσκήνιο ενόψει και της αυριανής τελετής μνήμης για τον Χ. Κολ στο Ευρωκοινοβούλιο.
    = ΗΠΑ. Ο αμερικανός πρόεδρος Ντόναλντ Τραμπ δήλωσε την Παρασκευή πως τα προγράμματα της Βορείου Κορέας για την απόκτηση πυρηνικών όπλων και βαλλιστικών πυραύλων απαιτούν να δοθεί μια «αποφασιστική απάντηση» και πως έληξε η περίοδος της «στρατηγικής υπομονής» με το καθεστώς της Βορείου Κορέας.
    = ΓΑΛΛΙΑ. Υπό έρευνα τέθηκε επισήμως η επικεφαλής του ακροδεξιού Εθνικού Μετώπου της Γαλλίας, Μαρίν Λεπέν, για κατάχρηση εμπιστοσύνης όσον αφορά το σκάνδαλο στο Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο. Η Λεπέν κλήθηκε να καταθέσει στον οικονομικό εισαγγελέα στο πλαίσιο έρευνας για κατάχρηση κεφαλαίων της ΕΕ που προορίζονταν για βοηθούς ευρωβουλευτών του κόμματός της.

    = ΕΞΟΔΟ ΣΤΙΣ ΑΓΟΡΕΣ. Ευκαιρίες μακροπρόθεσμου και βραχυπρόθεσμου κέρδους με μειωμένο ρίσκο έχουν αρχίσει να «βλέπουν» στα ελληνικά ομόλογα οι αγορές. Τόσο οι αναλύσεις «βάθους», όσο και οι εκτιμήσεις παραγόντων της αγοράς, μεγάλων επενδυτικών τραπεζών, αλλά και στελεχών των οίκων αξιολόγησης έρχονται να σκιαγραφήσουν βελτιωμένη εικόνα για την αξιοπιστία της χώρας και βεβαίως να συμπληρώσουν τις θετικές δηλώσεις πολιτικών και από τις δύο πλευρές του Ατλαντικού.
    = ΝΑΥΠΗΓΟΕΠΙΣΚΕΥΑΣΤΙΚΗ. Την έξοδο της ναυπηγοεπισκευής από το μαρασμό, σηματοδοτεί η έναρξη λειτουργίας της «Πλωτής Δεξαμενής Πειραιάς 1», του ΟΛΠ, στο Πέραμα, σύμφωνα με τον Υπουργό Ναυτιλίας και Νησιωτικής Πολιτικής. Στις προοπτικές του Πειραιά για να γίνει ένα μεγάλο παγκόσμιο ναυτιλιακό κέντρο, αναφέρθηκε ο υφυπουργός Οικονομίας και Ανάπτυξης Στέργιος Πιτσιόρλας, ο οποίος συμμετείχε επίσης στην εκδήλωση.
    = ΗΛΕΚΤΡΟΝΙΚΕΣ ΔΗΜΟΠΡΑΣΙΕΣ. Με ιδιαίτερη επιτυχία και σημαντικό όφελος για τα δημόσια έσοδα εφαρμόζεται για πρώτη φορά φέτος το σύστημα των ηλεκτρονικών δημοπρασιών για την παραχώρηση χρήσης παραλιών, σημειώνει σε ανακοίνωση το υπουργείο Οικονομικών. Ενδεικτικά, στις πρώτες 41 δημοπρασίες που έγιναν παρουσιάστηκε συνολικό όφελος της τάξης του 35%, σε σχέση με τις τιμές εκκίνησης.
    = ΣΔΟΕ. Με 78 υπαλλήλους θα ενισχυθεί άμεσα το προσωπικό της Ειδικής Γραμματείας Σώματος Δίωξης Οικονομικού Εγκλήματος (ΣΔΟΕ) προκειμένου να καλύψει τις ιδιαίτερα αυξημένες υπηρεσιακές ανάγκες. Η κάλυψη των θέσεων θα γίνει μέσω μετατάξεων υπαλλήλων σε κενές οργανικές θέσεις ή με ταυτόχρονη μεταφορά της θέσης που κατέχουν οι υπάλληλοι. Η κατάθεση των αιτήσεων θα γίνει μέσα σε αποκλειστική προθεσμία ενός μήνα από τη Δευτέρα 3 Ιουλίου έως την Τετάρτη 2 Αυγούστου 2017.
    = ΕΦΚΑ. Περαιτέρω χρονική επέκταση της δυνατότητας καταβολής εισφορών έτους 2016, για τους ασφαλισμένους του τ. ΕΤΑΑ-ΤΑΝ και των εισφορών Β΄εξαμήνου 2016, για τους ασφαλισμένους του τ. ΕΤΑΑ-ΤΣΜΕΔΕ και τ. ΕΤΑΑ-ΤΣΑΥ έως τις 30-11-2017 έδωσε ο ΕΦΚΑ.
    = ΧΡΗΜΑΤΙΣΤΗΡΙΟ. Κέρδη 6,26% κατέγραψε τον Ιούνιο το Χρηματιστήριο, ενώ στο πρώτο εξάμηνο κατέγραψε κέρδη 27,98%, απόδοση που είναι η καλύτερη από το πρώτο εξάμηνο του 1999. Σε ό,τι αφορά την τελευταία συνεδρίαση της εβδομάδας ο Γενικός Δείκτης Τιμών έκλεισε στις 823,74 μονάδες, σημειώνοντας άνοδο 0,49%. Στο επίκεντρο του ενδιαφέροντος βρέθηκαν οι μετοχές των τραπεζών και της ΔΕΗ.

    = ΙΣΤΙΟΠΛΟΙΑ. Επιδιώκοντας να ανέβουν στο βάθρο και να κρεμάσουν μετάλλιο στο λαιμό τους ετοιμάζονται για το Παγκόσμιο Πρωτάθλημα Ιστιοπλοΐας στην κατηγορία των 470 οι χάλκινοι ολυμπιονίκες στο Ρίο, Παναγιώτης Μάντης και Παύλος Καγιαλής. Η διοργάνωση θα φιλοξενηθεί στη Θεσσαλονίκη, το διάστημα 7- 15 Ιουλίου και θα συμμετέχουν 140 πληρώματα από 36 χώρες. Την ευθύνη των αγώνων έχει ο Ναυτικός Όμιλος Θεσσαλονίκης (ΝΟΘ), με τη συμπαράσταση των Δήμων Θεσσαλονίκης, Καλαμαριάς και της Περιφέρειας Κεντρικής Μακεδονίας, με τον προϋπολογισμό τους να ανέρχεται στις 75.000 ευρώ. 
    = ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΟΣ. Αφού πέρασε με απόλυτη επιτυχία τα ιατρικά τεστ, ο Παναγιώτης Ταχτσίδης αποτελεί και επισήμως τη νέα μεταγραφή του Ολυμπιακού, καθώς ο διεθνής μέσος έβαλε την υπογραφή του στο συμβόλαιο τριετούς διάρκειας που του πρόσφεραν οι Πειραιώτες. Ο 25χρονος χαφ είχε άλλη δυο χρόνια συνεργασίας με την Τορίνο, η οποία σύμφωνα με πληροφορίες έλαβε κοντά στο 1 εκατ. ευρώ για να του επιτρέψει να συνεχίσει την καριέρα του με τα «ερυθρόλευκα». Ο ίδιος ο παίκτης αναμένεται να αμείβεται με ένα ποσό γύρω στις 500.000 ευρώ για κάθε χρόνο συνεργασίας με την ομάδα του Πειραιά.
    = ΜΕΣΙ. Όλη η «αφρόκρεμα» του παγκοσμίου ποδοσφαίρου συγκεντρώθηκε στην πόλη Ροζάριο της Αργεντινής, όπου ο Λιονέλ Μέσι παντρεύτηκε την «παιδική του αγάπη», Αντονέλα Ροκούζο. Πρώην και νυν συμπαίκτες του «Λεο», ο Κάρλες Πουγιός, ο Χαβιέρ Μασεράνο, ο Νεϊμάρ και ο Λουίς Σουάρες, έδωσαν το παρόν, όπως και ο Ζεράρ Πικέ με τη σύζυγό του, Σακίρα.
    = ΠΑΟ. Κλίμα... μεταστροφής και παραμονής του Ροντρίγκο Μολέδο στον Παναθηναϊκό διαρρέται εδώ και λίγες ώρες από το περιβάλλον του παίκτη. Ο Βραζιλιάνος κεντρικός αμυντικός, ο οποίος το τελευταίο διάστημα έδειχνε πως επιθυμία του ήταν να αποχωρήσει από το σύλλογο, μετά την κουβέντα που είχε με τον Μαρίνο Ουζουνίδη στις αρχές της εβδομάδας, φαίνεται πως είδε διαφορετικά τα πράγματα και πλέον εμφανίζεται θετικός στο να συνεχίσει την καριέρα του στο «τριφύλλι».
    = ΕΠΟ. Η υπερψήφιση του νέου καταστατικού της ΕΠΟ αίρει κάθε ανησυχία για κυρώσεις στο ελληνικό ποδόσφαιρο, καθώς για FIFA και UEFA ήταν ένα προαπαιτούμενο το οποίο εκπληρώθηκε. Για να συμβεί αυτό, πάντως, χρειάστηκε να αποσυρθεί η διάταξη για τα κωλύματα παραγόντων, καθώς υπήρχε πολύ σοβαρό ενδεχόμενο να μην περάσει από τη Γενική Συνέλευση και να οδηγήσει σε προβλήματα. Βασιλειάδης: «Το ελληνικό ποδόσφαιρο αλλάζει σελίδα».

              Αρχαία Αίγυπτος: Πληροφορίες που θα σας «κόψουν» το αίμα   
    Χάρη στις πυραμίδες και στα καλά διατηρημένα κείμενα (από συνθήκες ειρήνης μέχρι προσωπικές επιστολές και λίστες για ψώνια), γνωρίζουμε πάρα πολλά πράγματα για το λαό της Αρχαίας Αιγύπτου. Κάντε κλικ και μάθετε κάποια περίεργα ιστορικά στοιχεία και ποιοι μύθοι είναι ιστορικά αληθείς ή όχι. Οι Αιγύπτιοι έτρωγαν κάποιες φορές παρέα με…. τις… μούμιες Πολλοί από τους τάφους διέθεταν και παρακείμενους θαλάμους. Στους θαλάμους αυτούς σερβίρονταν συχνά φαγητό και ποτό στο πνεύμα του νεκρού. Μόλις θεωρούσαν ότι το ‘κα» του νεκρού είχε καταναλώσει την ουσία του φαγητού, το φαγητό το έτρωγαν ζωντανοί, εκεί στον θάλαμο δίπλα στο σώμα του νεκρού. Ο βασιλιάς Τουταγχαμών μάλλον σκοτώθηκε απο ιπποπόταμο Οι τομογραφίες της μούμιας του νεαρού φαραώ έδειξαν ότι θάφτηκε χωρίς την καρδιά του ή μέρος του θώρακά του. Αυτή η παρέκκλιση από τις παραδοσιακές πρακτικές υποδηλώνει ότι μπορεί να πέθανε από κάποιο μοιραίο ατύχημα. Ωστόσο, οι ιστορικοί δεν μπορούν να είναι σίγουροι, το DNA έδειξε ότι ο μικρός βασιλιάς υπέφερε από ελονοσία και οι εξετάσεις στα οστά αφήνουν υπόνοιες για κάποιου είδους ασθένεια των οστών.

              Ako sme na vojenskom cvičení odnaučili dôstojníkov fajčiť. (jansykora)   
    Nefajčiari to v spoločnosti fajčiarov naozaj nemajú jednoduché. Každý jeden nefajčiar dôverne pozná tú aroganciu a netolerantnosť fajčiarov v priestoroch zdieľaných spoločne s nefajčiarmi, zahalených hustým dusivým dymom, ktorý sa dá obrazne krájať, v ktorom zakrátko celé oblečenie napáchne, pred ktorým nie je úniku a kde žiadna slušná výzva na nefajčenie nepomáha. Úplne zúfalé však je, keď tí fajčiari sú dôstojníci a nadriadení bezmocných nefajčiarov vojakov a absolventov základnej služby. Potom už týmto podriadeným nefajčiarom nezostáva skutočne nič iného, než pokúsiť sa akýmkoľvek spôsobom svojich dôstojníkov rýchlo odnaučiť fajčiť. A raz sme takýto odučiaci nefajčiarsky rýchlokurz na jednom z našich vojenských cvičení počas mojej jednoročnej povinnej oslnivej kariéry v ozbrojených silách vtedajšej Československej ľudovej armády svojim netolerantným a arogantným fajčiacim dôstojníckym nadriadeným na jednom našom vojenskom cvičení úspešne zorganizovali i my.

V USA v Kalifornii dodávky vypadli pre dlhodobo zanedbávanú údržbu rozvodnej siete, v Taliansku pre nedostatok vlastných výrobných kapacít a poruchy prívodných vedení z Francúzska i zo Švajčiarska a v Moskve pre preťaženie lokálnej siete a poruchy zabezpečovacích systémov. Keďže situácia na Slovensku je najbližšia k situácii v Moskve (iba zatiaľ, do odstavenia V-1 v Bohuniciach z čisto politických dôvodov, potom sa to výrazne zhorší a zmení aj na taliansky obraz), opäť raz poslali energetika na skusy do Ruska, aby sa priučil, ako zabezpečiť preťaženú elektrickú sieť pred rozšírením lokálneho výpadku. A ako zvyčajne sa mi pritom opäť nechtiac podarilo podružiť (pripiť si) s ruskými milicionármi.

              Her AncestryDNA test had a powerful impact on her, so she asked others to take one, too.   

    "I never really understood what it meant to be Peruvian as a child," says Connie Chavez.

    Chavez is a self-taught videographer who works at Latina magazine in New York. Growing up in New York, she didn't really have an opportunity to be around other Peruvian people. Her friends dismissed her background, assuming it was the same as any other Latino culture.

    "Nobody understood what Peru was," she says. "It made me really feel bad."

    Now that she's older, Chavez has had the opportunity to learn about the rich, unique culture that she is a part of. "I'm Peruvian, and I'm proud," she says. Her parents taught her about the history and culture of their Incan ancestors, and that’s what led her to eventually embrace her heritage. "Because of that knowledge, I feel powerful," she says.

    Learning about her background boosted Chavez's confidence in who she is — and it made her want to get others involved. Watch her story below:

    She wanted to do something about the xenophobia she was seeing in the world, so she started with herself.

    Posted by Upworthy on Tuesday, June 13, 2017

    It wasn't just as a kid that Chavez faced misunderstandings and mischaracterizations of her culture.

    During the 2016 election season, Chavez found herself on the receiving end of xenophobic and racist comments.

    "It was last August, and I was feeling really low because I was hearing a lot of xenophobic things, racialized remarks towards me," says Chavez.  

    She found herself wondering what she could do to start a more productive dialogue around race and culture. Inspired by activist Carmen Perez and her goal of starting "courageous conversations," Chavez wanted to start some courageous conversations of her own.

    "It is really hard to talk about race. It's really difficult," she says. "People feel uneasy, but that feeling is what creates progress."

    Chavez decided to take an AncestryDNA test as a starting point for these conversations.

    As she puts it: "Are you 100% everything? No, you're not, and there's no such thing as a superior race because, essentially, we all have DNA from the entire world."

    Chavez's test revealed that she's 59% Native American, 27% European, 2% African, and 3% West Asian.

    "After seeing my Ancestry results, I got to admit, I felt really powerful," she says. "I truly felt like a global citizen. It just affirmed what I always believed in, and it really gave me the confidence to reclaim certain parts of myself."

    Chavez wanted to share the empowerment she felt with others, so she persuaded her coworkers at Latina to take AncesteryDNA tests too.

    Chavez worked with AncestryDNA to procure tests for her coworkers, and then the women got together at work to discuss their results. They broadcast the conversation in a Facebook Live video.

    Many of Chavez's coworkers felt empowered by their results too.

    "I would definitely say I feel a lot more confident in who I am, knowing where I come from," says Barbara Gonzalez, a former staff writer at Latina.

    It's not always an easy process; sometimes seeing the results can be emotional and even scary. Chavez says, "It is a deeply profound, sentimental issue for some people, and I understand it. This is a big thing."

    But, she says, it's worth it. "It's a beautiful thing to find out who you are."

    Latina staffers discussed their results in a Facebook Live video.

    Chavez's project demonstrates how learning about your ancestry isn't just about the past — it can also help shape the future.

    With the help of her coworkers, Chavez used her AncestryDNA results to spark important conversations about race and culture. And she's inspiring others to do the same.

    After the Facebook Live broadcast, she says she received numerous emails from people thanking her.

    "When I started seeing the responses and the happiness behind every response," says Chavez, "I felt compelled to just continue the work that I'm doing."

    "I never really thought of myself as a pioneer for  anything, but really, starting this project really made me feel like I had a purpose here."

              Comment on Kim Kardashian Thinks Kanye West Diss Track Was A Real ‘Low Blow’ By JAY-Z by Arthur C. Clarke   
    Greetings from Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick. I want to inform you that Stanley and I conducted a secret experiment using quantum entanglement and telepathy to communicate with an interface. Aliens do indeed exist in another realm now and the Akashic Records. The interface with GOD/ Grand Galactics and aliens is on Facebook. Although, he has not seen the aliens physically, he talks to the ones that have lost their forms in evolution. This experiment was so secret, that even the United States government did not know about it. Stanley insisted on the independence and secrecy of the project. Namely, talking with the dead and/or aliens. It brings me great joy and pleasure to inform you that the experiment was a total success. The interface’s telepathy with us has verifiable proof on Facebook and he is willing to undergo a battery of tests and scrutiny to show his evolution to a higher state of consciousness. No other private or governmental agencies have been successful in talking to formless aliens, Grand Galactics / GOD. Our interface is a Photographer, United States Marine, Artist, Underwater Explorer, Aviation Technician, Lawyer, Humanities major and has direct DNA links to Shamans and Rulers at Gobekli Tepe , Anatolian / Armenian Kings , Biblical Heroes and interestingly for Stanley, he is also related to Napoleon, Jefferson, Franklin and one of the interface’s favorite minds, Tesla. Aliester Crowley/ 666 was also instrumental in the evolutionary development of the telepath’s higher state of consciousness. We are now at the opening of the Fifth Seal in Revelations. Arthur C. Clarke Stanley Kubrick 666
              The CBCP’s fake idea that the poor are “blessed” is the reason the Philippines remains poor   
    To Filipinos, rich people are “evil” and a life focused on the acquisition of money is a life to be ashamed of. And so there really is no reason to continue wondering why Filipinos remain an impoverished people today. The very idea of aspiring to be rich seems, to Filipinos, to be a thought to be purged from their minds.
    Rather, Filipinos justify their poverty using the very Catholic idea that to be poor is to be “blessed” before the eyes of God. Indeed, if I were to choose one fake idea ingrained by the Roman Catholic Church in the mind of the Filipino that did the biggest damage to their psyche, it would be that one. Unfortunately for Filipinos, such wealth-destroying ideas continue to be peddled by their Roman Catholic Church. Filipinos are subject to a constant bombardment of poverty-blessedness drivel everywhere they tune their eardrums and plant their eyeballs — in the Catholic masses they troop to every Sunday, the telenovelas and Filipino films they are addicted to, and the victim-heroes their “activists” and politicians put up for worship.
    The irony that seems to fly above the heads of Filipinos’ poverty-worshipping and wealth-demonising “activists” and politicians is that it is the highly-focused pursuit of capital accumulation (a.k.a. wealth creation) that enabled human civilisation to build the very devices and Web services that allow them to Tweet and Share their poverty porn. Contrary to popular belief, Silicon Valley’s titans are no latte-sipping liberals whose idea of “making a difference” in the world is sitting in a Starbucks café waxing poetic about “world peace” and sending relief goods to war refugees. Bill Gates wanted to dominate our desktop PCs with his software, Steve Jobs wanted to make computers that appeal to affluent artsy people, Zuck wanted to pickup chicks on the Internet, Jack Dorsey wanted to build a Facebook-killer people could use from their mobile phones, and Sergey Brin sought to organise humanity’s collective knowledge into a giant database.
    In case I missed some kind of Catholic pastoral letter on the subject, I really can’t see what is so “evil” about what these five brilliant — and mega-rich — human beings did.
    Indeed, as much as Filipinos would like to attribute everything that is wrong with their society to the “evil” devices of 16th-Century Imperial Spain, it was Spain’s pursuit of gold that brought their ships to the beaches of Cebu and the building of the city of Vigan (among other architectural wonders) that Filipinos now put up as the “pride” of “their” tourism industry. Perhaps, in some fairness to the Catholic Church, there is some evidence that the Spanish conquistadores found the natives of the islands in pretty much the same state as the way Filipinos are even today in 21st Century Philippines.
    In his Inquirer column, Ambeth Ocampo writes how painfully-relevant the observations made by the Spaniards on the natives they found in the Philippines are to this day…
    When I was a student, everything bad in our character was blamed on the colonial experience: on Spain, the United States and Japan. Reading Legazpi made me wonder if we had always been the way we are:
    “These people declare war among themselves at the slightest provocation, or with none whatever. All those who have not made a treaty of peace with them, or drawn blood with them, are considered as enemies. Privateering and robbery have a natural attraction for them. Whenever the occasion presents itself, they rob one another, even if they be neighbors or relatives; and when they see and meet one another in the open fields at nightfall, they rob and seize one another. Many times it happens that half of a community is at peace with half of a neighboring community, while the other halves are at war. They assault and seize one another; nor do they have any order or arrangement in anything. All their skill is employed in setting ambuscades and laying snares to seize and capture one another, and they always try to attack with safety and advantage to themselves.”
    To some degree this revelation that Filipinos already possessed the Poor DNA before the “evil” Spaniards arrived absolves the Roman Catholic Church of some accountability for why Filipinos are imprisoned by impoverished thinking today. But armed with all this hindsight that guys like Ocampo are kind enough to share with us today, there really is no excusing the Catholic Church and its henchmen in the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) continuing to propagate its brain-damaging fake ideas today.
    There is much to be done. As the old cliché goes, you gotta think rich to become rich. Filipinos need to purge their culture of memetic relics that contribute to impoverished thinking — that money and rich people are “evil”, that wealth is more a result of swerte (“luck”) than of hard work and clever ideas, that complex ideas articulated in English cause “nosebleed”, and, of course, the old Catholic notion that the poor are “blessed”. There is nothing “blessed” about being poor. Being poor sucks. As Mae West was said to have said: “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor, and rich is better.” To be fair, Filipinos who, as a people, have never been rich probably wouldn’t get it. Yet.

              Slovenija: Naš put do ZERO WASTE društva   
    U Zagrebu, 19. ožujka 2015. na  stručnom skupu „Gospodarenju otpadom 2015″ Igor Petek iz Snage Ljubljana održao je naročito zanimljivo predavanje s naslovom: „Naš put do ZERO WASTE društva“ Slovenija ima 2 milijuna stanovnika, te je jedna od najmanjih zemalja EU. Prosječno se godišnje proizvodi 362 kg/stanovniku komunalnog otpada (toliko se  otprilike proizvodi u Zagrebu), a u EU se generiralo 492 kg/stanovnika. Stopa reciklaže u Sloveniji je 42 posto, a u EU28 27 posto. Međutim u Sloveniji se odlaže još 51 posto komunalnog otpada, a u EU28 34 posto. Osamdesetih godina su slovenski stručnjaci isticali da Zagreb prednjači u primarnoj reciklaži odnosno odvojenom sakupljanju komunalnog otpada. Međutim u novom mileniju Ljubljana je razvila vrlo uspješan sustav odvojeno sakupljanja. Nositelj tih aktivnosti je tvrtka Snaga Ljubljana. Konkretno 2003. godine počelo postavljanjem zelenih otoka (tzv. sustav donošenja). Tim se sustavom postigla učinkovitost reciklaže od 45 posto. Sljedeće velike promjene u odvojenom sakupljanju komunalnog otpada Snaga je provela 2011./2012. godine. Domaćinstvima su u Ljubljani podijeljene su 4 kante (biootpad, papir, ambalaža i smeće). Istovremeno se provela i optimizacija ruta sakupljanja. Konkretno drastično je smanjen broj pražnjenja posuda od najviše jednom tjedno (biootpad) do jednom u tri tjedna (ambalaža). Na taj se način već 2014. postigla učinkovitost odvojenog sakupljanja od 61 posto! Očekuju da će već do 2020. odvojeno prikupiti 70 posto otpada. Uvođenje novog sustav koštalo je 2 milijuna eura. Na početku uvođenja sustava „od vrata do vrat“ („sustav dolaženja“) bio je kaos! Građani su negodovali. Broj poziva i poruka prema Centru za korisnike tvrtke Snaga narastao je s tri tisuća na 13 tisuća. Zbog važnosti komunikacije s građanima povećan je broj zaposlenih na 90 osoba. Objašnjeno je građanima da stari jeftiniji sustav nije više moguć. Srećom političari nisu popuštali, […]
              Numerička analiza koncentracije bakra u akvatoriju Puntarskog zaljeva   
    Sažeti prikaz članka Gorana Lončara i dr.  – „Numerička analiza koncentracije bakra u akvatoriju Puntarskog zaljeva“         U nastavku je sažeti prikaz Izvornog znastvenog rada prof.dr.sc. Gorana Lončara dipl ing. građ., dr.sc. Mladena Tudora dipl. ing. kem., dr.sc. Gordane Beg Plakar dipl. ing. fiz., prof.dr.sc. Višnje Oreščanin „Numerička analiza koncentracije bakra u akvatoriju Puntarskog zaljeva“, koji neprijeporno zaslužuje posebnu pozornost. Cjeloviti rad je nedavno objavljen u časopisu Hrvatske vode 23/2015, 92, 93 – 110. Uvod Puntarski zaljev nalazi se u jugoistočnim dijelu otoka Krka. Površina tog zaljeva male prosječne dubine od samo 3,7 metara. Zaljev je gotovo potpuno zatvoren i siguran za sidrenje brodova, a s otvorenim morem povezan je samo kroz prolaz šrine 200 metara. U Puntarskom zaljevu izgrađena je jedna od prvih velikih marina u Republici Hrvatskoj. Aktualne se diskusije o daljnjem širenju marine. Aktivisti naselja u blizini zaljeva, osobito naselja Kornić, zaustavili su početkom novog milenija planove proširenja marina. Međutim zaljev nazvan prema primorskom mjestu Punat opterećen je nečistoćama povezanim ne samo s marinom, već i nečistoćama iz brodogradilišta i gradske luke. Održavanje i korištenje plovnih objekata rezultira sedimentalnim opterećenjem s anorganskim i organskim zagađenjima. Takvo zagađenje najčešće sadrži visoke koncentracije teških metala (osobito bakra) i metaloida, policikličkih aromatskih ugljkovodika, polikloriranih bifenila, tributil-kositra i dr. (Oreščanin, V. (2014) : Inertizacija zagađenih sedimenata različitim kemijskim metodama, Hrvatske vode 22 (89), 227-238). Teški metali se ne razgrađuju i njihova se koncentracija vremenom povećava. Sediment u formi sitnozrne frakcije (glinovite i siltozne) sadrži najveće koncentracije takovih zagađivala. Sitnozrna frakcija se može zadržavati u stupcu vode a ujedno je i vrlo mobilna. Osim fizikalno-kemijskih procesa na mobilnost zagađivala djeluju i mikrobiološki procesi koji se odvijaju u samom sedimentu (npr. u mrtvim organizmim). Zato je sediment  naročito sitnozrna […]
              Posudiš mi lozinku   
    Hakeraj! Jedna tema koju nikad nije dovoljno ponavljati. Nakon svakog ponavljanja treba je ponoviti opet. Naučno je dokazano da kad nekome nešto ponoviš sto puta da mu to nekako sjedne u glavu. A nekima je dovoljno reći samo jednom. Ako ste nekome dali svoju lozinku onda niste hakirani. Samo ste dali lopovu ključ svog stana te ga ne možete optužiti za provalu. Ali, ako ste mu ključ dali na prijevaru jer je rekao da mu treba za mazanje pekmeza na kruh onda je to smiješno. Odmah je potrebno shvatiti da je lozinka zapravo ključ vašeg bloga ili bilo čega drugog virtualnog i elektronskog. Treba razmisliti o tom ključu. Ne se igrati s tim. Kome biste dali svoj ključ Točan odgovor je : nikome! A posebno ne administratoru bloga, jednako kao što ga ne biste dali ni vlasniku zgrade u kojoj imate stan. Postoje izuzeci. Ponekad damo ključ rodbini kako bi nam provjetrili stan ili zalijali cvijeće dok plutamo po moru. No to su izuzeci. U prvim danima bloghaera često sam bio zamoljen da nekome počačkam po dizajnu jer je u to vrijeme bilo hit imati cool dizajn. Isto tako često je jedino rješenje bilo ući u taj bog i napraviti što treba. Uvijek sam zamolio vlasnike da u postavkama promijene svoju lozinku u nešto drugo, npr. hal pa kad ja završim posao da je vrate u prvobitno stanje. Razlog je jednostavan. Ne želim znati vašu lozinku jer bih u slučaju nečije budalaštine mogao postati prvi osumnjičeni. Možda nekome blog nije toliko važan pa si misli ah, lozinka, ko ga šiša, nek' ga obriše. Ok, meni svejedno, ali kako god vam je blog marginalna stvar čuvanje njegove lozinke je dobra praksa posebno ako vam čuvanje lozinke općenito postane navika. Jednog dana vam se možda jave iz uprave banke i zamole vas za vašu lozinku kako bi napravili upgrade vašeg računa novim funkcijama. I onda vam ne obrišu račun nego samo njegov financijski sadržaj. To je već opasno. Jednom ćete dati nekome lozinku svog e-maila radi testiranja servera, a onda će s vašeg maila predsjednik Amerike dobiti prijeteće pismo. Glup primjer ali mail koji niste napisali a poslan je u vaše ime izazvat će prilično panike prije nego dokažete da ste nekome dali lozinku. Dobro, ako netko misli pa nisam glup, naravno da neću dati lozinku svog bankovnog računa, zašto raditi razliku između banke i bloga. Znači li to da ne biste dali ključ od stana, ali od vikendice, garaže ili šupe bi mogli Lozinka je lozinka, i to ne može biti ja, mama ili keks Da malo ponovimo: 1. NITKO na ovom svijetu vas nema pravo tražiti lozinku. Čak i ako vam ju je on sam dodijelio. Ne nasjedajte autoritetima i nekome tko se predstavlja kao administrator, šef odjela, čovjek na održavanju servera, vaš voditelj IT-a u firmi, predsjednik republike ili Bill Gates osobno. Tko je nasjeo, nasjeo je. Ja ne zamjeram nikome, jer i to je jedan od načina za brzo učenje i stjecanje iskustva. Pogriješiš pa ti postane jasno. 2. Napravite jaku lozinku. Jaka ne znači da treba upisati cijelu prvu rečenicu Da Vincijeva koda, ali bilo bi dobro da ima barem 8-9 znakova i da to budu velika i mala slova te brojevi. To bi trebalo spriječiti upad grubom silom odnosno pogađanjem vaše lozinke. Pogledajte koji film pa ćete vidjeti o čemu govorim. Riječ mojmaliblog je loše ali m0Jm4L18Lo6 je već bolje. Ne razumijem se u matematiku ali kod prve riječi kombinacija se sastoji od tridesetak mogućih znakova (sva mala slova) dok je u drugom slučaju skup puno veći (preko sedamdeset). Blog.hr sada u postavkama ima i funkciju provjere snage vaše lozinke na probijanje grubom silom. Provjerite. 3. Pravi hakeraj je upravo ovo: vi ste se zaštitili, ali netko je provalio, na silu. Čak i legendarni Mitnick nije provaljivao u servere grubom silom već je telefonom nazivao sistemske administratore i slične tipove, predstavljao se različitim imenima i izmolio od njih lozinke na povjerenje. Nije baš pravi hakeraj već više prijevara. Ja doduše nikad neću razumijeti koji je point provaljivanja na tuđe račune, stranice ili servere u cilju brisanja i uništavanja istih. To mi je jednako grebanju auta čavlom, trovanju nečijeg psa. Napraviti štetu, a ne se moći na sva usta hvaliti, osim svojim par prijatelja za koje ne znaš hoće li te cinkati jednog dana... I ovaj mladac koji je švrljao po blogu... ne treba ga zbog toga smatrati kriminalcem. Tražio je način za dokazivanje, smislio prijevaru i iskoristio naivne koji su povjerovali. Sreća da to nisu bankovni računi i da šteta nije nepopravljiva. Jedino što mi je žao da je brisao sadržaje i radio štetu. Bilo bi bolje da je svima objavio novi post: Ja sam taj i taj. Na prijevaru sam ušao u ovaj blog. Nisam ništa dirao, samo objavljujem ovaj post. Molim vas poradite na informiranju o sigurnosti i zaštitite svoje intelektualno vlasništvo. To je moj cilj. E, da je to napravio... cijenio bih taj iskorak. Bilo bi bezazleno ukazivanje na pogrešku i otkrivanje načina na koji možete izgubiti, bilo bi to upozorenje svima da ne nasjednu nekome tko bi isto napravio s destruktivnim namjerama. Ovako je sve ostala avantura s pojačanom medijskom pažnjom.
              Kuda ideš, robot   
    Kad sam prošli put pisao o mogućim Googleovim potencijalima, netko je u komentarima napisao: scary! Da, malo je zastrašujuće, ali to je tek vrh ledenog brijega. Moji vrijedni prsti su ovih dana natipkavali upravo taj Google i uz njega YouTube, u potrazi za još malo zastrašujuće budućnosti. Tako će ovaj post biti o robotima. Ako jednog dana Google postane um svakako će mu trebati i tijelo. Pa, krenimo redom. Robot Riječ robot se proširila svijetom od češkog pisca Karela Čapeka i njegove predstave R.U.R (Rozumovi univerzln roboti) gdje ju je on prvi upotrijebio stvorivši je od riječi robota rad. Doduše knjige i enciklopedije pišu da je već 450 godine p.n.e. grčki matematičar Archytas Tarentumski uz brojne druge izume predstavio nekakvu mehaničku pticu koja se micala pokretana parom. Teško da je ta mehanička naprava bila više od zanimljive igračke i eksponata ali je svakako zametak onoga o čemu mislim dalje pisati. Definicija robota ima mnogo. Evo ih nekoliko. ISO 8737 definira robota kao: automatski kontrolirani, reprogamabilni, višenamjenski manipulator, koji se može programirati u 3 ili više osi, statičan ili mobilan u automatskim proizvodnim procesima. Cambridge online dictionary: stroj za automatizirano obavljanje poslova, kontroliran računalom. Joseph Engelberger, pionir industrijske robotike: ne mogu definirati robota, ali ga znam prepoznati kad ga vidim. Roboti dakle prema svojim definicijama imaju opise i definicije tehničke prirode, uglavnom neljudske. Kad bismo robote htjeli svrstati u nekakve grupe to bi svakako bili industrijski, radni roboti, i kućni ili roboti za zabavu. O industrijskim robotima ne bih raspredao jer je svaka automatizirana traka za punjenje piva u tom smislu robot. Od njih ne možete očekivati manje do infarkta kad bi vas netko na iznenađenje postavio u japansku tvornicu automobila, sekcija 4, odjel domaćeg tržišta, zavarivanje karoserija. Ono što bi moglo biti scary su oni drugi, domaći, pitomi, kućni pa čak i humanoidni roboti, koji bi trebali živjeti s nama. Iz priča znanstvene fantastike robote uglavnom znamo kao razbijače, ubojice, mučitelje, osvajače i slično. Tako ih uglavnom i doživljavamo i vjerojatno ni s jednim od njih ne bismo htjeli dijeliti svoj stan. Ovdje moram spomenuti i veleštovanog gospodina Isaca Asimova čija je priča Ja, robot postavila temelje razumijevanju pravilnog odnosa čovjeka prema mašineriji koju je sam stvorio. Asimov je poznat po svojim zakonima robotike koji bi trebali biti osnova svakog robotskog operativnog sustava, neuralne mreže, pozitronskog mozga, Recycle bina ili što god će im davati kakvu takvu autonomnost u djelovanju. Isakovi zakoni kažu ovako: 1. Robot ne smije povrijediti ljudsko biće ili kroz neaktivnost dozvoliti da ljudsko biće bude povrijeđeno. 2. Robot mora poštivati naredbe čovjeka osim ako su te naredbe u suprotnosti s Prvim zakonom 3. Robot mora štititi vlastito postojanje osim ako to nije u suprotnosti s Prvim ili Drugim zakonom Asimov je dakle robotima namijenio jednu prilično robovsku sudbinu, a čovjeka kao njima nadređeno biće. U filmovima su prilično uprskali stvar ali to je vjerojatno posljedica novotarije prema kojoj su roboti također inteligentni, imaju svijest i dušu i toliko su slični ljudima da zapravo mogu imati dobar ali i vrlo nezgodan karakter. Kad se to jednom probilo, svaka kanta s pogonom upregnuta na iPod mogla je postati kreatura iz noćne more. No pustimo filmove i priče. Pogledajmo malo u sadašnjost. Kućni roboti, roboti pomagači Jedan od prvih komercijalnih robotića bio je mali pas Aibo kojeg su napravili, naravno Japanci. Prvi Aibo je bio tako pametan da je znao sjesti, lajati, hodati i bljeskati žaruljicama. Igračka je bila skupa i s daljnjim napretkom je mahala glavom, znala napraviti salto i slične nepodopštine. Kako se u današnje vrijeme informatička tehnologija razvija do besvijesti, programi su kompliciraniji, procesori su brži, memorije su veće, senzori su osjetljiviji, tako svaka šuša u Tajvanu može nabaviti elektronički sklop koji će gomilu pokretnih dijelova tjerati da rade određene stvari. Igračke su evoluirale pa danas možete za svoj akvarij kupiti i robotsku ribu, ovakvu. Onda su na komercijalnu robotsku scenu stupili tko drugi nego Šveđani. Electrolux je napravio Trilobita, jednog od prvih pravih kućnih pomagača. Mala okrugla samohodna naprava opremljena senzorima, procesorom, displejem, s nekoliko gumbića, kotača, motorom, četkom i vrećicom za prašinu. Trilobite ZA1 je zapravo usisavač za prašinu. Trilobite se guzicom zabije na svoj punjač negdje u kutu i ponašanjem podsjeća (iako ne i oblikom) na Seven-of-Nine dok se regenerira u svojoj... čemu već, ostavnici Onda mu proradi program (koji ste naštelali ranije prije odlaska na posao), pa se odšteka i počne zujati po kući udišući s poda smeće i prašinu. Trilobite ima sposobnost pamtiti kuda je prošao, odrediti veličinu sobe, izbjegavati prepreke, uvući se ispod kreveta, otjerati mačku, prepoznati stepenice, uvući se u kut iza fikusa, odande ponovo otjerati mačku, a jednako čisti i po tepihu kao i po parketu. Ako mu baterije oslabe vratit će se na svoje mjesto, zaštekati se na punjač i kad je spreman krenuti dalje gdje je stao. Naravno da sam vam pripremio i malu demonstraciju, evo ovdje. Čim završite s gledanjem vratite se natrag ima toga još. Danas postoji desetak kopija Trilobita jer su i drugi sklopili neke veze u Tajvanu pa se matične ploče mogu kupiti tek tako. Humanoidni roboti E, ovo je već klasa za sebe. Ima nečeg izazovnog u tome da čovjek napravi nešto slično sebi. Tako se svaki desetcentimetarski robotić, ako ima glavu, ruke i noge, smatra zbog toga humanoidnim. Od samog početka su kao prioritet bile poluge za manipulaciju, nešto kao ruke s kliještima na kraju koje su mogle prihvaćati stvari. Programirani pokreti su postavljali stvari na pravo mjesto i sve je izgledalo genijalno. Ako ste mu pomakli ono što je trebao uhvatiti došlo je do frke, stvar više nije funkcionirala. Onda je i glava glava dobila na vrijednosti jer se u nju mogla smjestiti kamera koja je povezana s računalom omogućila manipulatoru da sam vidi gdje se nalazi traženi objekt, pa veselo koordinira ono što vidi s onim što drži. I to je prošlo super. U početku su se roboti kretali na kotačima ili gusjenicama što ih nije činilo baš humanoidnima. Japance (ili uglavnom Japance) je to toliko iznerviralo da su krenuli u smjeru osmišljavanja kretanja na nogama. Tako su nastajali razni pauci i kukci od pola metra sa po šest ili osam nogu. Čak i jedna robotska mula na četiri noge. Kao što vidite na videu, mula hoda po brijegu, blatu, drvlju i kamenju i jednostavno se ne želi prevrnuti. Čak i ako je ritneš ona lovi ravnotežu. Točno je da liči na kreaturu iz laboratorija Dr Frankensteina, ali koncept je u redu. E onda su japanci počeli smanjivati broj nogu. Dok nisu ostali na dvije. U čast ranije spomenutog gospodina, njihov uradak se danas zove Asimo. Asimovo rodilište je u Hondi, koja ima i novaca i vremena. Hodanje po dvije noge nije baš trivijalna stvar. A još je manje trivijalno osmisliti djelotvorno održavanje ravnoteže, gdje trebate napraviti žiroskop za srednje uho, procesor za mozak, i motore za mišiće. Asimo je robot koji je zaista predstavnik svoje klase. Iako je tek malo viši od metra i stopala su mu prilično plosnata, radi dodatne stabilnosti, Asimo je sasvim osebujna kreatura. Na leđima u svom malom ruksaku nosi svoju pamet, sasvim solidno gestikulira, ima sve prste na rukama, prepoznaje face, hoda po stepenicama, trči 6 kilometara na sat, gura kolica, prenosi predmete, trči u slalom, nije ovisan o Windowsima... i sve to radi toliko uvjerljivo da bi ga najrađe ponijeli doma. No od samog početka nije bilo sve tako jednostavno. Kako je tekao dvonožni razvoj do današnje verzije Asimova pogledajte 'vamo. Pa se zatim vratite za nastavak. Naravno, u Japanu ne samo da ima najviše ljudi na svijetu već ima i najviše humanoidnih robota. Asimov kompić dolazi iz Sonyja i zove se Qrio. I on je naravno pravo čudo od robo-djeteta. On zna i skočiti (malo, ali zna), zna se podići kad padne, a bejzbol lopticu baca kao pravi profesionalac, sa stilom. Evo i Qriove demonstracije. Vratite se nakon reklame, pa pogledajte kako Qrio sa nekoliko svojih iz plemena pleše jednu koreografiju za narod. Predstavljamo plesnu skupinu Qrio SDR-4x! Zadnja informacija je da su oba ova hodajuća PC-a naučila hodati i po neravnim i promjenjivim površinama i nagibima. Androidi Asimo i Qrio nisu jedini robotići te vrste, ima ih u Japanu mali milijun. No, neki su Japanci ponovo iznervirani jer njihovi humanoidni robotići i dalje izgledaju samo kao kao simpatične igračke. Da bi izgledali više kao ljudi treba im dati nekakvu kožu, obući ih u nekakvu odjeću, i naravno postaviti ih na nekakvo javno mjesto nek razgovaraju s ljudima. I tako dolazimo do serije visokih japanki zamamnih oblina, iako im koža djeluje malo photoshopirano a pokreti su im lagano pijani. One su androidi. ne skroz, ali malo jesu. Android je zapravo robot koji svojim ponašanjem oponaša čovjeka u pojavi i ponašanju. Tvorenica android dolazi od grčkog andr- (čovjek, muškarac) i nastavka -eides (sličan, jedan od vrste, eidos je vrsta) No, u svakom slučaju, da popijem pet piva pojačanih s dva konjaka, prevarili bi me. Ona se zove EveR-2. EveR-2 je kćer od EveR-1 čije je ime nastalo po biblijskoj Evi (eng. Eve) i slova R za robota. Prilično ambiciozno, zar ne A evo još jedne koja pokušava uspostaviti komunikaciju, actroid žena (ACTor + andROID), mislim da se zove DER-1 ali nemojte me držati za riječ. Iako dobro izgledaju, na žalost ukopane su na mjestu jer prioritet njihovih tvoraca nije mobilnost. Mislite li da je tu kraj priče Ne, budućnost je već stigla, i to u većoj količini nego vam se čini. Naravno da i sami uviđate ideju da bi najnovija dostignuća u mobilnosti i izgledu trebalo spojiti u jednu mašinu i tako nas približiti pravim androidima. Pronašao sam da se radi i na tome. Na tijelo robota poznatog kao Hobo (mislim da je to Asimov i Qriov bratić) namontirali su glavu nikog drugog nego Einsteina. Njegova glava ima kosu, bore, oči i milijun malih motorića za razne izraze lica. Dok odgledate ovaj filmpomislite kako će to izgledati kad mu i tijelo repariraju s tim novim materijalima. Nisam siguran koja firma to radi ali pronašao sam i jedan clip: Jules Face expression. Slučajni pokreti oka, okretanje glave, izrazi smijeha, bijesa, začuđenosti. Još se vidi da je robot jer malo slabo miče usnama kad govori a i fali mu zadnji dio glave pa mu vire žice. U svakom slučaju zanimljivo. Još malo pa gotovo. Nije li sve ovo scary Tehnologija radi i napreduje, moraliste tek čeka veliki posao. Vanjski izgled se može dorađivati s vremenom. A onda se roboti mogu spojiti na Google da bi nekog vraga naučili. Zašto to govorim pročitajte u prethodnom postu. AI, umjetna inteligencija. Vjerujem da čim se mobilnost robota do kraja usavrši, da će se naći netko tko će prvo napraviti androide vojnike kako bi nas oni zaštitili od vanzemaljaca, actroid žena, Elektroluxovih usisavača, Einsteina i svih ostalih namijenjenih da nam ponešto pomognu. Pametno oružje, koje samo košta para ali njihov gubitak je moralno neupitan a učinkovitost velika. E, to je scary. Unište li nas androidni vojnici svejedno ćemo biti samo krivi. Trebat će nam pod hitno jedan commander Data. Hoće li postulati Isaka Asimova ostati u ljudskoj svijesti, ili će umjetna inteligencija razmišljati sama za sebe. Možemo im dati znanje i mobilnost, učinit ćemo ih neprepoznatljivima dok će se kretati među nama. Uspije li im da počnu stvarati i sami sebe, pitanje je kad će se pojaviti prvi robo-terorist ili robo-diktator. A onda nam možda preotmu Mars. Za sam kraj današnje dizertacije jedna reklama za Johny Walker, prilično inspirativna. Ako i na trenutak pomislite na dan kad će androidi ovako razmišljati, odmah po bocu Walkera. Možda zaboravite, dok se zaista ne dogodi.
              Google u raljama života   
    T-Zombix je na svom blogu spomenuo nedavni govor Larryja Pagea, jednog od osnivača Googlea, i link na interesantni članak o Googleu kao vladaru svijeta, koji impliciraju da Google razvija umjetnu inteligenciju. Tragom te informacije otvorio sam nekih tridesetak stranica vezanih uz Google AI (artificial inteligence) i zaključio da tu svakako nešto smrdi. Page ima teoriju po kojoj se ljudski genom može komprimirati i svega 600 Mb i smatra da bi znanost također trebala prihvatiti neke marketinške principe. Između ostalog. Iako bi ponekad svog silikonskog ljubimca lupili jer ne radi ono što smo mi htjeli da radi i možda ne vjerujemo da jedna takva nakupina tranzistora može ikad dobiti božansku pamet, malo sam se zamislio nad čitavom pričom. Hoće li Google napraviti prvi upotrebljivi AI Potrudio sam se i što bolje 'polinkati' neke stvari da ipak ne ispadne da sve pričam totalno u bunilu. Google ima jednu od najvećih baza podataka o svemu i svačemu. Ta baza je doduše samo skupina podataka bez duše i pameti. Iako je prvobitno zamišljen kao tražilica, pokazalo se dobrim da ono što Google pronađe uvijek spremi na neko mjesto. Možda tada nisu razmišljali o praktičnoj primjeni tih podataka već su se podaci indeksirali isključivo kako bi se ubrzala učinkovitost samog sustava pretraživanja. Rastom broja podataka prikupljenim po internetskim bespućima, Google je prisiljen stalno unaprijeđivati svoje sustave kako bi se nosili s tom bujicom i time ne samo spremati dobivene rezultate već ih nadalje i analizirati. Naizgled banalna stvar je kad upišete neku krivu riječ u Google (npr. bananna), on će vas ljubazno zapitati 'Did you mean : banana'. Ne tvrdim da je to umjetna inteligencija i svatko tko makar površno zna ponešto o programiranju shvaća da tražilica prije nego potraži rezultate konzultira svoj rječnik u potrazi za tom riječi pa ako ona ne postoji ponudi vam ispravnu alternativu. Čista programerska logika, daleko od misli, ako ovo, onda ono.... Ali recimo da je to začetak. Tek mali dodatak da se na tražilici osjećamo bolje. AdSense i AdWords programi za reklamiranje su također u početku radili prema ključnim riječima ali se zna da je ovaj pogon ipak malo sofisticiraniji od jednostavne provjere rječnika. Google naime već duže vremena razvija svoju semantičku platformu i neprestano na njoj radi. Nije dakle više riječ samo o pojedinačnim riječima već i u smislu koji čine grupe riječi. To omogućava da oglašivači zaista uvale svoje reklame na pravo mjesto. Ako malo pogledamo Google reklame po raznim stranicama vidjet ćemo da time vlada nešto jača mašinerija (iako još uvijek nije savršena). Semantički sustavi imaju zadatak shvatiti (uvjetno rečeno) sadržaj vaše stranice na osnovu rečenica, međusobnih ovisnosti i odnosa među riječima (bolje rečeno - konteksta), jezika kojim pišete i naravno svekolikih indeksa i klastera u Googleovoj bazi podataka da bi shvatili jeste li prava meta za reklamu. Semantički sustav u sprezi sa svekolikom bazom znanja je zapravo i jedno od glavnih oružja koje Googleu osigurava prednost pred drugim potencijalnim pokušajima. Uz neke dodatne razloge, svakako. Ako ste programer i napravili ste neku aplikaciju koju ste nazvali Titanic, Google će nastojati da vam ne servira reklame za film Titanic, za povijesne studije o Titanicu i slično nego će pronaći one koje su relevantne za softver i razvoj aplikacija, programiranje i slično. Iako je možda riječ Titanic na vašoj stranici spomenuta najviše puta i sasvim sigurno jedna od vodećih u Googleovim indeksima koji tu riječ povezuju s vašom stranicom, njihov semantički engine nekako prepoznaje sa čime još je ta riječ povezana i zaključuje (opet uvjetno rečeno) čime se vi zapravo bavite. Iako se radi o programu, nikako o svijesti, ovo je već nešto bliže. Iako napredni sustav traženja još uvijek koristi razne dodatke na riječima kako bi tražilici rekli konkretnije na što mislimo i kako da filtrira rezultate (navodnici, plus, minus, site:, link: itd) pitanje je vremena kad će to u potpunosti biti izbačeno. Vjerojatno onog trenutka kad Googleova semantika bude u stanju prepoznati to iz vašeg konteksta. Ne bude li u stanju, ponudit će vam alternative obogaćene s malo predefinirane gramatike (koju je u engleskom jeziku lakše napraviti nego u hrvatskom). Ovo s alternativama bi mogla biti zasluga širokog opsega podataka i prepoznavanja pojmova koji nastaju grupiranjem riječi u klastere i analizom njihovih odnosa (što Google radi također već godinama). Što još Google radi kako bi poboljšao svoj semantički pogon Skenira knjige. Jedan je njihov službenik izjavio: Ne skeniramo knjige da bih čitali korisnici, skeniramo ih da bi ih čitao AI. Vjerojatno to AI-u neće dati ni pamet ni dušu ali će svakako utažiti glad za riječima i pojmovima. Je li kompletan sadržaj interneta premali pa su navalili na druge izvore ljudskog izražavanja Priča se da u Googleovim laboratorijima rade na zvučnom prepoznavanju uzoraka. Televizija i filmovi su već na internetu. Čim ih se Google dočepa kako treba moći će navodno na osnovu 5 sekundi zvučnog zapisa točno znati o kojem se filmu ili emisiji ili muzici radi. Čisti search kroz bitove. Jednom kad prepozna zvučni uzorak i poveže ga s naslovom moći će vam na osnovu naslova reći i gomilu drugih podataka koji su povezani s tim. Je li u tome najava ultimativne tražilice koja će biti u stanju s nama raditi mali chat kad se zaputimo tražiti nešto za što ne znamo kako se zove. Sve je dakle u semantici i utvrđivanju smisla. I sm sam svojedobno isprogramirao mali programčić koji je pogađao koju ste životinju zamislili na osnovu pitanja ili odgovora. Vi ste odgovarali s da ili ne i on bi pogodio o kojoj se životinji radi. Ako ne bi znao odgovor, tražio bi vas da postavite neko pitanje u svezi te životinje i da kažete kako biste na to pitanje odgovorili. Tako bi učio. Jednostavno ali s vremenom sve glomaznije. Čista logika, nema semantike niti krativnosti. S kojih godinu dana povremene upotrebe mogao je pogoditi tristotinjak životinja. Kako su odgovori na pitanja vezani uz naše vlastito znanje i kako je nekome vrabac smeđe a nekome sive boje ipak s vremenom je program pogodio vrapca bez obzira na vaš izbor. Ali zbog primitivnog da/ne učenja to su u bazi bila zapravo samo dva različita vrapca , nikako pametni zaključak. Ali pogledate li 20Q (AI baziran na neuralnoj mreži) na ovom linku, vidjet ćete da stvar može raditi daleko bolje. Nakon kratkog uvoda ova mašinerija bi trebala pogoditi razne pojmove s manje od 20 pitanja. Koliko ja znam, ovaj AI uči već 19 godina. Iako se sve svodi na pitanja i odgovore, gdje uz da i ne imate još i nepoznato, nevažno, možda, vjerojatno i ponekad. Ako ne pogodi u 20 pitanja ponudit će vam odgovor gdje trebate reći je li odgovor točan, pogrešan ili je blizu. Ako nije točan, 20Q igra se nastavlja s dodatnih 10 pitanja. Na kraju će vam čak i ponuditi analizu odgovora, gdje misli da je pogriješio i gdje misli da ste vi pogriješili te koji su vam odgovori nekonzistentni jer većina populacija (koja je igrala) misli drugačije. Ne pogodi li zamolit će vas da objasnite na špto ste mislili. Tako uči. Ova igra je do sada odigrana skoro 50 milijuna puta. Neat i full zabavno!!! Google ima daleko jače izvore, gotovo svekolikog ljudskog znanja koje je objavljeno na internetu, dostupne su mu enciklopedije, dokumenti, blogovi, vijesti, publikacije a u zadnje vrijeme i knjige. Semantički pogon koji se 24/7 vrti u moćnim mašinama i dalje na osnovu nama neshvatljivih algoritama slaže riječi i pojmove u klastere kako bi im pridodao značenje i pripadnost. Google bi mogao postati jedna velika igra pogađanja koja bi začinjena finom gramatikom čak mogla djelovati i smisleno. Može li Google proći Turingov test Gospodin Turing je još 50-ih postavio zadaću svakoj mašini koja bi se htjela predstaviti kao umjetno inteligentna. Test se sastoji u tome da stroj mora moći voditi konverzaciju s čovjekom na način da ovaj ne shvati razgovara li sa strojem ili s živom osobom (naravno razgovor ne mora biti u zvučnom obliku, dovoljan je samo običan chat). Možete isprobati neke od uradaka, nisu najbolji ali dočaravaju priču. Da bi Google to mogao trebati će mu dobro isprogramirati gramatiku kako bi baratao podacima i davao povratne informacije ili podpitanja na čovjeku smisleniji način nego da samo vraća obične liste rezultata na traženi pojam. Trebati će znati odrediti i vrijednost toga što je rečeno. Zametak toga je i u također vrlo složenom i misterioznom algoritmu Googleovog PageRanka. Neki smatraju da je PageRank zapravo jedan od zametaka budućeg AI-a. O PageRanku se malo zna, a ono što se zna je nama smrtnicima malo razumljivo (barem meni). Ako ne vjerujete pogledajte što je neki matematički freak prostudirao o PageRanku na Wikipediji. Viša matematika. Iako naizgled beznačajna brojka od 1 do 10 ovaj algoritam je više od pukog brojanja klikova. On obuhvaća i PageRankove stranica na kojima je pronašao link na vašu, broj takvih stranica, ali ono što je značajnije obuhvaća i sve ostale metode vezane uz rangiranje ključnih riječi i pojmova pronađenih po internetu, na vašoj stranici i na stranicama na kojima postoje veze. PageRank zapravo određuje i koliko je semantički važan sadržaj vaše stranice na određeni upit te vas shodno tome rangira i u rezultatima pretraživanja. U kakvim su oni točno relacijama teško ćemo znati ali vjerujem da je PageRank samo još jedan dodatni poligon za testiranje svekolike Googleove pametne mašine. Njegova je namjena da komadićima informacija da određenu vrijednost što će za budući AI svakako biti značajni detalj. Mnogo toga znamo, ili barem mislimo da znamo, ali Google iza plota ima daleko više tajni nego se to na prvi pogled čini. Na Googleovom labu već postoji čitav niz aplikacija koje se mogu koristiti, od rokovnika, kalendara, podsjetnika, programa za obradu teksta, tabličnih kalkulatora, elektronske pošte, pretraživanja proizvoda, prevodioca... da ne nabrajam, cijeli mali operativni sustav. Iako se o Googleovom operativnom sustavu svojedobno šuškalo izgleda da od toga ipak neće biti ništa i da je sve ostalo na nivou špekulacije. Pričalo se o zamisli da uz računalo imate samo mali rudimentarni pogon s vezom na Google preko interneta. Sve ostalo bi bilo tamo i radilo bi se online. No Google nije naprosto odustao od toga već izgleda da puca daleko dalje nego što nam se čini, dok mi i dalje možemo samo špekulirati. Svatko tko je ikad malo ozbiljnije ušao u Google svijet uvidio je da se Googleove funkcije i aplikacije integriraju, spajaju i preklapaju i siguran sam da su informacije u njima savršeno povezane. Jedan account, više funkcija i interakcija među podacima koji se tamo nalaze. Možda Google neće nikad pisati romane i poeziju i imati vlastiti um, možda neće nikad biti kreativan ali da bi mogao postati vraški napredni mehanizam koji zna sve. Neki kažu da će to biti za našeg života. Možda bi mogao odgovoriti na bilo koje pitanje postavljeno normalnim ljudskim jezikom. Možda bi mogao analizirati sve tekstove vezane uz neki pojam i pomoći u rješavanju misterija, nedosljednosti, kriminala, istine i laži. Jer Google će biti u stanju znati sve što se pisalo, snimilo, pjevalo a možda čak i govorilo nekom događaju, bilo gdje bilo kad. Jer Google već odavno ne pretražuje internet samo za nas. On ga pretražuje i za sebe. Hoće li nam čitava priča donijeti problema, narušenu privatnost ili nešto drugo Moguće, ali samo ako mu to dozvolimo. Mnogi pišu i pisat će još o dvojbama moralnosti i humanosti umjetne inteligencije. Trebamo biti svjesni da budemo li ikad 'razgovarali' s Googleom, on to nikad neće zaboraviti, i svaka konverzacija bit će novi temelj za nova saznanja o nama o našim navikama i samim time, pod krinkom svesrdne pomoći korisnicima, predmet nekih novih rasprava. A mi bismo mogli postati otvoreni kao knjiga. Google će znati kako se zovemo, što smo tražili prošle godine u isto vrijeme, kakvu muziku volimo slušati, kako organiziramo svoje vrijeme, koje stranice obilazimo, s kim se družimo, tko je kad i gdje pričao ili pisao o nama, pokazat će nam našu kuću na satelitskoj snimci... Da malo karikiram. Jednog dana možda mi osvane poruka na Googlu: Previše surfaš! Posveti se djeci jer ti imaju loše ocjene u školi, a žena ti NE ostaje duže na poslu kao što misliš jer uredno isključuje računalo na kraju radnog vremena, GPS u autu uključuje odmah nakon toga, a garažna vrata otvara u prosjeku četiri sata kasnije. GPS podaci su nedostupni zbog zaštite privatnosti. U frižideru je ponestalo jaja. Da naručim novo pakovanje
              Još o prašini   
    Prašina, sitne čestice nečistoće koje se najčešće u oblacima uzdižu i kovitlaju u zrak pokraj puta. Šoferima je to prva asocijacija. Domaćicama pak je to ona grozna siva naslaga koja ima sposobnost da se pojavljuje na namještaju kao njegov sastavni dio. Ima u njoj čestica zemlje, tkanina, tepiha, obične ulične prašine, pa čak i mikroorganizama. Prašina je materijalna i prema zakonu o očuvanju materije je neuništiva. Prašina je i metafora. Svaka riječ, akcija ili događaj koji uzdrma užu ili širu okolinu a komentari se množe u oblacima mogla bi se nazvati dizanjem prašine. Problem je u tome što je nitko ne čisti. Ljudi po prirodi rođeni za dizanje prašine, u tom metaforičnom smislu.. Neki je dižu svjesno a neki nesvjesno. Nešto bih opet komentirao ali bez ikakve namjere da proširujem oblake. Dizanje prašine je već postala umjetnost. Dizanje prašine je postala profesija. Za profesionalno dizanje prašine trebate biti spretni. I kao i u svakoj profesiji možete svoj proizvod napraviti sami a možete iskoristiti i neći tuđi rad. Što je veći oblak prašine bolje za vas jer vas se od dalje vidi. I kvaliteta prašine je također važna. Od kakvih se čestica sastoji, u kojem smjeru ćete je otpuhnuti, odakle će se podići njen famozni oblak i u čije će nosnice zapeti. Politika praši sve u šesnaest. Oni već imaju oblake koje neprestano dotjeruju. Na neke zaborave pa im druga strana dobro puhne i vrati ih natrag na ishodište. Onda oni kažu to nije naša prašina, a ako je, onda ste je modificirali. Ili je to ona koja je ranije bila vaša. Mi uglavnom mašemo rukama jer oblak prašine je prilično amorfna stvar pa je zato pogodan za ono čemu služi bez da mu se pokoji put otkrije izvor. Iza politike tu su mediji, da malo suzimo priču. Njima je to profesija. Oni proizvode, popravljaju i otkrivaju u zametku ogromne količine prašine. I oni to rade savršeno. Ne treba to gledati samo s negativnog aspekta. Ta prašina je medij za prijenos podataka i može se iskorisiti u pozitivne svrhe, kao što znamo iz dnevnih medija. Kao i obično, ja se prvo nalaprdam koječega pa tek na polovici posta krenem na bit. Mali zavidni čovjek također praši. Svi mi prašimo više ili manje, namjerno ili nenamjerno. Bez reda. A što se događa s tim našim oblačićima koji se vide jedva s desetak metara Netko ih gleda. Profesionalci. Suzimo još priču. Ovdje na blogu već već skoro 4 godine lebdi lagana izmaglica. Svako malo netko nešto pokrene. To se primijetilo već odavno. Onda su neki oblaci kao Vibi, pa ukori blogerima, pa dnevnik jedne Ane i slični izazvali profesionalce i uskoro se sve prašilo da je milina. I to se pokazalo kao dobro. Nekima. A nekima ne. Kako god bilo, danas se to može korisno upotrijebiti. Ako znate na pravom mjestu u pravo vrijeme podići mali oblačić prašine sve su šanse da ćete uskoro nakratko prekriti nebo. Ako tako želite. Pogledajmo par primjera. Nedugo je Večernji izazvao omanji atmosferski poremećaj angažirajući dvoje poznatih ljudi da pišu blog. Bio je to lijepi i šareni oblak koji su svi zapazili. Onda su na tim blogovima zaredali komentari i digla se tolika prašina, ona sivo crna, da se moglo vidjeti do Luxemburga. Ali ovaj put su je podigli oni manji ljudi, ne naširoko poznati, već anonimni i poluanonimni, koji su samo imali nešto reći o lijepom i šarenom Večernjakovom oblaku. I tako je jedan mali oblak uletio i u urede Jutarnjeg. Jutarnji je svojedobno digao popriličnu prašinu recenziranjem hrvatskih blogova. Kako nisu svi bili zadovoljni mišljenjem recenzenta prašilo se naširoko i nadugačko. Onda kad se više nije moglo disati. Pa je prestalo. Sad je Jutarnji uvidio da konkurencija prekriva veći dio blogerskog neba pa su ubacili par anonimaca u komentare ne bi li oni još malo zaprašili i time učinili nešto za opću bolju vidljivost. Pokazalo se to kao neučinkovito jer je oblak prašine bio sve veći i veći, a oba oblaka, i onaj šareni i onaj sivo-crni radili su svoj posao kako treba. Onda je došlo do preokreta. Jutarnji je proučio malo detaljnije što se događa sa onim malim oblačićima prašine. Pa su utvrdili postojanje čestice koja se zove novinari koji pišu blog, za pare, fuj!. Odabrali su zatim smjer fućkaš novinare i angažirali nekoliko blogera da pišu novine. Taj se oblak sad sasvim drugačije razvija. Čak je i stanoviti recenzent (oko kojeg se prašina uglavnom slegla) odlučio ponovo progovoriti pa je nahvalio spomenute blogere možda po prvi put u životu podigavši oblak u svim bojama. I još malo dalje, uzeli su si za pravo malo proanalizirati kakav je to oblačić prašine podigao njihov novi bloger a u svezi Večernjakovih blogera. Tako su dobili kredibilitet. Njihova se čestica zove blogeri koji piše novine, za novac, yes!. Je li tu nešto sporno Nema što, profesionalno i s jedne i druge strane. Rekao sam prije da su to profesionalci, to je njihov posao. Ne postoji univerzalna istina. Postoje samo oblaci prašine u kojem je svakome na volju pronaći istinu koja mu odgovara. Nitko nema pravo reći moj oblak je jedini dobar i lijep. Čitam i Malenicu i Mišaka, čitam i T-Zombixa i novac, na primjer. Meni su svi dobri, svaki u svom području. I u čemu je kvaka Večernji i Jutarnji rade svoj posao, neminovno je da su napravili to što su napravili. Takva su vremena, takvi su trendovi, takva je tehnologija, takve su mogućnosti. Bilo bi čudno da to nisu napravili. Zašto mali ljudi praše oko toga Malenica piše onako kako zna i želi, ne treba se slagati s njom. Ali ne treba je vrijeđati i prašiti tek toliko da se praši. Mišak je prošao malo bolje ali i njemu su nekoliko puta zaprašili, tek toliko da ne misli da je sve pet. Zašto T-Zombix je legenda bloga, moguće najčitaniji, sve što zna dijeli nesebično i nitko mu to ne može osporiti. Neki su mu sprašili da je izdajnik. Bože sačuvaj. Novac zna toliko o financijama da bih mu najrađe platio pet kuna svaki put kad otvorim blog da bih nešto naučio. Dvornikove neću ni spominjati, oni su i glumci i blogeri i novinari. I već postoje mudrijaši koji praše li praše. Čemu to Zavist je jedna od najdestruktivnijih emocija. Ona uništava zavidnoga i čini štetu njegovoj okolini. Zavidni ljudi dižu uvijek prašinu, dajte im bilo kakvog materijala. Oni su takvi i gotovo. Svijet je protiv njih i oni su se dužni braniti. Takav je njihov stav. Neki čak idu tako daleko da brane i nas ostale. Od silnih prašina veće se odavno ne zna koji je čiji oblak. Zavist funkcionira na jednom nepisanom pravilu. Ako si bolji od mene, ako imaš ono što ja nemam, ako me u bilo čemu natkriljuješ, ja ću te spustiti malo niže, ocrniti te, sve tvoje poteze ću prikazati kao loše, tako da će izvana u tom silnom oblaku prašine izgledati da sam ipak ja bolji. A ostat ću i dalje to što jesam. Zašto ne umjesto toga učiniti sebe boljim, dati si truda, zaslužiti biti bolji i istovremeno priznati da u ovom trenutku to nisi. Moja počast Večernjem koji se dosjetio pokrenuti svoju blog kampanju, počast i Jutarnjem koji je našao svoj način sa odgovor. Pokazali su da vladaju poslom koji rade i da su spremni dok postoje tražiti nove načine i nova rješenja. Pa mi i očekujemo od njih da prate stoljeće u kojem se nalaze, zar ne Počast i blogu koji se eto nalazi u sredini i služi kao spona. To su ljudi koji rade cijele dane i ne treba vjerovati da je drugačije. I nije im lako. Kad bi bilo, onda bi svatko mogao imati svoj portal. A nema ga. Svaka čast Malenici koja u silnim oblacima prašine i dalje šiba po svome. Iako je uglavnom kritiziraju vidim je boljom od sebe jer to može izdržati. Ja ne bih. Čast Mišaku koji je u kratko vrijeme skupio mnogo čitatelja. Koliko samo vremena taj čovjek troši da bi napisao ono što piše i da bi pripremio emisije koje priprema. I on je bolji od mene jer ja o njegovim temama nemam dovoljno argumenata. To su ljudi koji suprotno mišljenjima, ne sijede po cijeli dan u fotelji i čekaju da im nešto padne s neba. Ako je koji dan ležerniji to ne treba nikome uzeti za zlo. Jeste li pokušali kad napisati post o nekoj temi, ali ne onoj koja vam padne na pamet nego po narudžbi. Da biste to napisali a ako ne potrošite min 5-6 sati na kvalitetno istraživanje napisat ćete obični šund ili prepisati od nekog drugog. Jer treba nešto znati da bi se napisalo. I ovo što sad pišem nije apsolutna istina. Ovo je samo moje mišljenje i ne treba nikoga uzrujavati. Počast T-Zombixu koji nije novinar ali je iskoristio priliku koja mu se ponudila kao blogeru pa piše kolumnu. I svaka mu čast na tome što ga baš briga što mi mislimo, on ulaže svoje vrijeme u traženje svojih tema. Mi ne plaćamo njegove račune. I on je bolji od mene jer piše blog redovito, zanimljiv je i zna što govori. Zaslužio je da ga netko angažira. Jednako vrijedi i za novac. Da ne znaju to što znaju, da nisu uložili (i još ulažu) vrijeme da bi to znali, nikad ih nitko ne bi trebao niti tražio. I što njima svima treba reći Pa nije valjda vi ste bezveze, trebali su uzeti mene, ali ja ne bih htio jer bi mi to bilo ispod časti.... Aha, sigurno. Dakle, zavist na stranu. Prestati dizati prašinu i žaliti se na one koji su iskoristili priliku. To nikog neće dovesti niti s bloga u novine niti iz novina u blog. Tko i ne želi dospjeti drugdje nego je sad nek samo kaže super, svaka čast i pusti druge da žive kako im paše. Ako o datoj temi netko zna više, uvijek je uputno argumentirano diskutirati. Ali ako ne zna, prašina neće pomoći. Jer svaki oblak najbolje i najviše govori o onome tko ga diže, bez obzira kojim ga likovima nakitili. Ako bude među vama onih koji bi ovu moju laičku dizertaciju komentirali, molim ponovo, ne dižite prašinu oko toga što sam napisao, nije vrijedno. Uz to, baš sam neki dan glancao po blogu.
              Mrežni talenti   
    Evo još jedne studije nekog tko nije mjerodavan komentirati. A taj sam ja. No, kako se svatko tko je ikad napisao jednu javnu riječ smatra pozvanim za pametovanje o temama u koje se ne razumije kako treba, ja neću biti iznimka. Nekad davno postojali su ljudi koji su gusku skratili za jedno pero, ušiljili ga, umočili u tintu i škrabali po papiru. Nešto su pisali. I zanimljivo, napravili su knjigu. Da bi knjigu imalo više ljudi bilo je potrebno prepisati je u cijelosti. Malo je ljudi mogli posjedovati pravu knjigu. I sporo je teklo pisano znanje među ljudima. Onda je u neko drugo doba stanoviti Gutenberg napravio slagarski stroj gdje se tekst knjige prvo posložio od malih izlivenih slova. Tim strojem se moglo tiskati stotine i tisuće knjiga i one su polako ali sigurno ulazile u domove. Danas većinu poslova rade pametni i precizni strojevi i knjiga ima više nego ljudi na zemlji. Neću komentirati aktualnu tehnologiju. Vratio bih se na esenciju. Sadržaj. Tko je pisac Mislim ovdje na pisce romana, priča i sličnih stvari koji riječima uspješno opisuju slike, osjećaje, radnje, i drže nas u napetosti dok gutamo red za redom, oni koji imaju ono 'nešto' zbog čega ih zapravo čitamo. Kako je nekad došlo do toga da nekakav Dostojevski postane pisac Je li on bio samouk Je li završio ikakve književne ili jezične škole Što je sa svim drugim piscima Ja o tome nemam pojma. Neke književnike učimo u školi. Učimo njihova djela, gramatiku, književne stilove i forme. Učimo njihove jezične i stilske bravure. Od njihovog je pisanja napravljena umjetnost. Književnost. Neki su ljudi postali pojam i postavili standarde 'dobrog' pisanja. Danas kad pokušate napisati priču, oni koji se u književnost razumiju čitati će vašu priču i raspravljati o vašem zapletu, fabuli, komentirati vašu naraciju, čitljivost, razvučenost, brzinu radnje, nedorečenost, plitke ili duboke opise, faš fond riječi, uglavnom sve ono za što niste ni pomislili da vaša priča sadrži (ili ne sadrži, a trebala bi). Jer niste pisac i nitko vas nije učio kako se piše. Kad su pisci hodali zemljom, trebali su napraviti stanovit broj kilometara da bi došli do nakladnika kome se njihova umotvorina mogla svidjeti ili ne. Ako nisu dobro pisali, ništa od njihove književnosti. Siguran sam da je bilo i onih koji su možda dobro pisali ali se nikad nisu gnjavili idejom da napišu knjigu. Ima i onih koji nikad nisu ni pokušali. Tko zna za koliko smo briljantnih romana i priča zakinuti zato što je neki tip u nekom selu bio prirodno darovit za pisanje ali je bio daleko izvan radijusa zbivanja. Mnogi su umrli neotkriveni. A da nisu ni pokušali. Nisu imali šansu. I tako smo stigli do danas. Već sama pojava računala je dala mogućnosti za pisanje na lakši način, za lakšu manipulaciju tekstom, prekrajanja i zamjene odlomaka, brisanje itd. Pisaće mašine su izašle iz mode. A onda su se pojavio internet. Skoro ni papira više ne treba. Tekst se piše digitalno, šalje digitalno, čita digitalno. Sve što ja ovog trenutka napišem, moguće je pročitati iz bilo kojeg dijela svijeta dokle dopire čarobna internet žica. Priznajte, odakle čitate ovaj tekst Elektroničke knjige također postaju popularne, sve su popularnije iako dobri stari papir ne posustaje. Ima nečeg čarobnog u čitanju 'prave papirnate knjige', barem za naše generacije ljudi. Knjiga osim dobrog sadržaja lijepo i izgleda. Zamislite silne tomove poredane u kolekcije i uredno smještene na vidljivom dijelu dnevne sobe. Često i nažalost nepročitane. No vratimo se na esenciju. Sadržaj. Pravila o fabulama, naraciji i radnji dalje vrijede. Oduvijek su vrijedila i zauvijek će vrijediti. Ali više pisci ne hodaju samo zemljom. Pisci su prešli u virtualni svijet i iz njega se počeli rađati novi od ljudi koji su se tamo našli. Danas možete kao totalni anonimus otvoriti blog i napisati nešto. Onda ćete vi ili netko drugi shvatiti da vam je odlična naracija, da vam je konstrukcija rečenica neviđena, da vas ljudi vole čitati i da vaše priče imaju ono nešto. Niste to napisali da biste postali pisac ali netko vas je vidio i predložio vam da to postanete. Prilika se pojavila u virtualoj mreži gdje zajedno hodaju pisci, wanabe pisci, nakladnici i wanabe nakladnici. Pronađe se tu i onih koji nisu ni razmišljali o tome, a i oni koji su se odlučili organizirati, hajdemo objaviti nešto zajedno. 'Ukoričeni blogeri' su postali forma. I pišu odlično. Čitam neke od njih, kako koga ulovim, i zaista, stil im je takav da bih sigurno mogao progutati njihov roman kad bi ga netko na taj način napisao. Bravo blogeri, za koje se pitam jesu li učili biti pisci ili su to postali zato jer su dobili priliku. Jednog dana u budućnosti, nakon 15 objavljenih djela jedna osoba XY održat će promociju svog 16. romana u 79. godini života. XY rođen je u prosječnoj radničkoj obitelji i pohađao školu za automehaničara. Kao i većina njegovih vršnjaka uštedio je nešto novca i kupio svoje prvo računalo. Uglavnom za računalne igre i hackiranje. Iako mu škola nije išla najbolje, provlačio se s prosječnim ocjenama. Već u srednjoj školi prigrabio je informatičku tehnologiju i kao i svaki njegov vršnjak ušao u sve sfere komunikacije. Pojavom prvih blog servisa u Hrvatskoj 2004. godine bio je među prvima koji su otvorili svoj blog. Pisao je u početku o gnjavaži u školi, o lošim sendvičima i kritizirao političare i društvo. Ipak njegov je blog bio posjećen jer je bio dostupan širom svijeta a njegov način pisanja bio je dopadljiv, jezgrovit i imao je ono 'nešto'. Nakon što su ga nekoliko puta neki online portali spomenuli kao blogera shvatio je da u tome ima nešto. Pratio je kako se blogeri organiziraju u nekakve književne grupe, organiziraju tiskano objavljivanje priča . Zašto ne Uložio je sav svoj trud i napisao nekoliko priča. Prve tri su mu razni samoosnovani žiriji odbili zbog loše naracije, dvije zbog prerazvučene radnje a jednu zbog plagijata. Upamtio je i mali, gotovo beznačajan komentar. Na blogu si odličan ali ove priče su ti koma. To nisi ti! Onda je XY počeo čitati objavljene priče drugih i shvatio da ne može pisati na silu po narudžbi. Možeš puno čitati, graditi svoj osebujni stil, popraviti ga nekim općeprihvaćenim normama, ponovo čitati, i imati možda malo sreće i svakako talenta. Sljedeću priču je napisao baš u svom prepoznatljivom stilu, niti ne pokušavajući izmisliti novu formu i pretvarati sebe u nešto drugo. I bila je postala hit. S vremenom je pisao veće i duže priče i one su se pojavljivale u svim tiskanim izdanjima blogera. Objektivno, njegov je rad postajao sve bolji i bolji. Dvije godine nakon toga završio je i objavio svoj prvi roman. Danas u 79. godini, objavio je svoj 16 roman, vjerojatno posljednji. Automehaničarsku radionu je zatvorio u šezdesetoj a njegove knjige se i danas prodaju, ne kao nekad, ali ipak... I sjedi XY u svom naslonjaču, gleda korice svoje posljednje knjige, misli su mu negdje... Iza sebe čuje klikanje po tipkovnici. To njegov 11-godišnji unuk uživa u čarima interneta. Dok je XY odlagao knjigu na rukohvat naslonjača tipkanje prestane, opruga na stolici kratko zaškripi i unuk mu priđe i ugura mu se ispod ruke. - Deda, Karlo od tete Štefice si je otvoril bloga. Ti znaš gdje je na internetu taj blog Još pomalo zamišljen i ne više tako dobrog sluha, XY mu nježno odgovori: - Ne samo na internetu, Bog je svugdje, sinko, svugdje...
              Prašina blogovskih arhiva   
    Eh, kako rijetko pišem, mogao bih upotrijebiti najčešće izgovorenu Big Brother Frazu: Ne mogu vjerovat'!! Čujem se povremeno sa starim znancima s bloga, mislim na one s kojima smo nekad zajedno počeli čeprkati po blog predlošcima pokušavajući napraviti nešto smisleno. Već tada je bilo jasno da su neki izvanredni pisci, drugima je sve bilo u dizajnu, jedni su bili anonimci i u strahu da ih se ne otkrije a drugi su otvoreno istupali koristeći medij do maksimuma. Neki su otkrivanjem identiteta odustali. Neki su se posvađali pa prestali pisati. Jedna ekipa je otvorila svoju domenu, neki su se odštampali... Vremena su se promijenila ali su neke stvari eto, ostale iste. Kažu ti moji stari znanci, stigla je neka nova generacija blogera, nas ionako nitko više ne čita. Ispucali smo svoj blog-terapijski maksimum, ispucali što smo imali i sad se nadamo da smo se izliječili. Neki od tih starih znanaca i dalje pišu. Pronašli su sebe u blogu i sve su bolji i bolji. A generacije prolaze. Recimo nešto o konstantama. I dalje postoji more blogova kategorije sinoč sam jeo sendvić, i jezero komentara kategorije dođi na moj blog i komentiraj nešto. I dalje se vode polemike oko stvaranja cool i ostalih listi. Toga je bilo i u prvoj i u drugoj i u trećoj godini, a bit će bogami i u svakoj sljedećoj. Stvar je rješiva samo na nivou pojedinca. Svatko ima svoju poštenu zamisao, tako da se zbog toga nikad nisam posebno sekirao. Konstanta je da stara generacija više ne prčka po kodovima i ne mijenja dizajn svakih mjesec dana. Umorilo nas. Dolazimo samo provjeriti je li itko od nas išta napisao (ponekad dođem provjeriti sam sebe, za svaki slučaj) i uglavnom pročitati one koji su s vremenom počeli briljirati na ovom mediju ili su netom postali nove zvijezde. Svaka im čast. A varijable Blog je od onih vremena drastično evoluirao. Da, mislim na blog generalno ali i na blog.hr kao jedan od servisa. Imali smo nekad svega par dobrih funkcija i to ti je to. Sad ih ima more jedno. Počele su Google reklame, a i neke druge i to će ponovo na blogu otvoriti novu stranicu. Netko će to shvatiti ozbiljno. Povećao se broj celebrityja koji su problogali, a povećao se i broj blogera koji su postali celebrity. Uglavnom u ovoj blog-juhi isplivalo je dosta poštenih komada mesa. Rekao bih da sve ide svojim tijekom. Počev od dječjih bolesti, na početku, pa sve do povremenih epileptičnih napada sada, u zrelijoj dobi. A ja i dalje povremeno svratim da vidim jesam li što napisao :) Povremeno gledam statistike pa mi je drago da ima još onih koji kopaju po mojoj arhivi i tamo pronalaze ponešto za sebe. Pronašao sam na jednom mjestu komentar (nek mi oprosti autor ali zaboravio sam gdje) koji kaže nešto u smislu: E svi mi koristimo tu Njušilicu, a pitam se čitamo li mi uopće tog tipa Pa sam se ja otputio da vidim malo o čemu se radi. Hehe, na čas sam se osjetio kao kost od dinosaura koju je netko ponovo iskopao. Kad rekoh Njušilica, mnogi ne znaju da iako sam ostao kod onog stručnog naziva Mini Favs, naziv Njušilica zapravo nije moja izmišljotina već veleštovanog kolege blogera Jesusa Quintane koji je, prije no što je stvorio Bestseler, žario i palio ovim prostorima. Za one koji vole kopati po arhivama bloghaera svratite i do njega i načitajte se. Ima još dinosaura. Bigmamma, naprimjer. Priča ko u priči, bez dlake na jeziku, ali s ljubavlju. Nekad smo čitali i Trapulu čije se pero osušilo već prije dugo vremena. Posegnete li duboko u arhivu pronaći ćete pregršt sjajnih postova. Prašna arhiva bloghaera još čuva sve. Ili Moje virtualno ogledalo. Otklikajete skroz na sami početak kad je bloghaer nastao u velikom prasku i počnite odatle. Sjajne kratke pričice, pregršt inspiracije i emocija. Zatim, Trash, bio je to blog izvanredne i originalne ideje. Svaki post inspiriran je različitim otpacima koji su tog dana završili u kanti za smeće. Jedinstveno. Ima toga još, pregršt inspiracije i mudrosti na Georgu (koji također piše rijetko) i Krossu. A naravno, neću zaboraviti i na Piskarije lijepe i talentirane Ane. Samo ovih nekoliko blogova koje sam popamtio (a koji više ne pišu ili pišu vrlo rijetko) sadrže arhiviranog materijala za nekoliko knjiga. To su oni kojima su se brojači vrtjeli i vrtjeli. Eto sada zaslužene penzije za većinu od njih. Sreća što ta djela i dalje sjede negdje na tvrdom disku bloghaerovog servera i čekaju da ih prijeđe ona crta koja će is smjestiti u povijest.
              ...a nije ponedjeljak   
    No dakle. I to sam doživio. Možda neki od vas nisu, ali ja baš jesam, full! Iako mi je nogomet najmanje važna sporedna stvar na svijetu, ponekad pogledam poneku utakmicu. Onako po inerciji. Izgledalo je kao da je važna. A ona je ovaj put bila drukčija od ostalih. Hrvatska Engleska 2:0 Što reći o igri, ukratko, iz mog kornera Izbornik nije riječi izgovarao kao na sprovodu, ni prije ni poslije utakmice, za razliku od mnogih prije njega. Osjeća se napokon dobra atmosfera u ekipi, slična kao u "vatrenih". Pobijedili smo, zasluženo, i nismo zasrali na kraju, što smo inače radili tradicionalno. Svi su igrači igrali, nisu simulirali i nisu se nakon deset odigranih minuta vukli po terenu, kao što to često biva. Nismo nasjeli na slavu nakon prvog zabijenog gola, konstanta igre je ostala do kraja. Nitko nije previše pljuvao po sucu jer je ipak bio ujednačen i greške je kompenzirao, čak ga je i uvaženi Oko Sokolovo odbio komentirati i time neznatno promijenio programsku shemu. Igra je to sa okruglom loptom. Ali bila mi je dopadljiva iako ne pratim nogomet. No ono što je najvažnije i pozitivno, dogodilo se izvan igre. Huligani su se "pokefali" na vrijeme i završili gdje im je mjesto, još prije utakmice. Preostali navijači su navijali, ali stvarno navijali i nisu bacali baklje na teren. 12 igrač ovaj put nije zaradio čak ni žuti karton. Na forumima je preko 90% pozitivnih kritika. Namjerne provokacije se ne računaju. Ipak osjeti se više veselja, ponosa i divljenja nego potrebe za pljuvanjem. Za izuzetke pročitajte prethodni post. Ponovo Hrvatska diše kao jedan, čak ne marimo što se danas ponovo neki avion zabio u zgradu u New Yorku, niti što je Sjevernoj Koreji pala nuklearka s police, niti što se možda iz tih razloga EP možda neće ni održati. Želim reći da kad bi ovako bilo svaki put zaista bih se osjećao bez brige i ne bi me bilo stid. Na stranu rezultat. Možda pokoji put i izgubimo ali svi su odradili svoj dio posla kako treba, od huligana, pa preko policije, navijača, igrača i izbornika do komentatora. Čini mi se pošteno da oni koji su za svađu to učine na jednom mjestu da riješe to među sobom pa da svi ostali nemaju s tim brige. Huligani na jednoj i drugoj strani zaslužuju jedni druge. Stvarno mi nije žao ni jedne masnice ili čvoruge koje su si razmijenili u zanosu. Mogli bismo im svaki put dati neki trg ili čak stadion za njihovu stvar. Dok oni riješe svoj ultimate fight ostali mogu na miru gledati nogomet. Ti se sportovi razlikuju. U fightu nema lopte. Poslije policija riješi ostatke i to je to. Znam da vam nogomet nija najvažnija sporedna stvar na svijetu kao što nije ni meni. Ali svejedno mi je drago ako svi zajedno (oko stvari bilo koje važnosti) pokažemo kulturu, strast, želju, motivaciju i odradimo sve kako treba. Ipak je ovo hrvatska reprezentacija. Reprezentacija svih nas koji se kužimo ili ne kužimo u nogomet. *** A ujutro sam gledao Sabor. Hrvatski Sabor. Sabor svih nas koji se kužimo ili ne kužimo u politiku. Utakmica Sabor 5:0 Uvjerljiva pobjeda. Sabor neću ni komentirati. Ni kulture, ni želje, ni strasti, ni motivacije ni dobro odrađenog posla. Nula golova. Tko zna je li greška u navijačima, igračima ili izborniku. Političari su uživali gledajući utakmicu. Pitam se uživaju li ovi s utakmice kad gledaju politiku
              The Good, The Bad And The Ugly   
    Tko misli za nas Nekada davno, prije koju godinu, ovdje sam pisao seriju Mind Twister. Poigravanje vijugama uma. Činjenica je jedna, a svatko bi je mogao reći za sebe: moj mozak je moj mozak, moja pamet je moja pamet, moje misli su moje misli i one čine moje JA. No, je li baš tako Jel' vam se učinilo ponekad da vaše (kao i moje) JA nema veze s mozgom, pameti i mislima Kao da ponekad čine nešto što nikad ne bismo učinili da smo se natjerali kontrolirati što to gospodin u našoj glavi kuha. A nije on kriv. Masovna psihoza ili psihologija mase, frustracije i ostale negativne pojave čine da mi pustimo mozak na pašu i da naše JA zapravo sačinjavaju nečiji tuđi mozgovi i razmišljanja. O čemu mi to zapravi imamo stav I kakav Pa tako gledam zanimljive pojave ONLINE. Večernji ONLINE, T-portal, 24 sata i ostali objavljuju članke i onda masa ispod toga komentira. A komentari su upravo dokaz onoga što sam do sada pisao. Postoje među nama (a možda smo i mi neki od njih) ljudi koji su za svoju životnu misiju pustili mozak na pašu na napravili se coll do kraja. Nema te pozitivne vijesti koju oni neće preurediti. Ok razumijem, objavi se politički skandal i onda nastaje opća pljuvačnica na sljedećem principu: ako je skandal napravila vlast onda zagovornici oporbe pljuju po vlasti a ovi drugi za to krive bivšu vlast (i naravno njihove zagovornike), onda se u raspravu uključe neki iz ostalih bivših republika da malo doliju ulje na vatru u smislu vi Hrvati ovo, vi Hrvati ono i tada nastane totalni kaos. Na kraju rasprava više nema veze s temom članka i nitko to ne primjećuje. Ali ok, recimo da je to standardno za neku lošu vijest. No ponekad se pojavi i ne tako loša vijest, ili ako je već sama po sebi loša, barem ima pozitivan i sretan završetak. To mnogima napravi pomutnju u glavi. Umjesto u svakom zlu ima neko dobro promišljanja su upravo obrnuta - u svakom dobru ima neko zlo. Na primjer. Šofer zagrebačkog gradskog prijevoza spasio 150 ljudi, autobus se naime zapalio. Jedna od rijetkih vijesti gdje je bilo opasno a nitko nije poginuo ili bio povrijeđen. Čovjek (šofer) je bio pribran, na vrijeme je uočio opasnost, procijenio situaciju, uskladio svoje reakcije, pustio ljude van, pogasio zapaljeni motor spriječivši još veću štetu, učinio je sve što treba i kako treba i sve se na kraju završilo dobro. Jer, moglo je i gore. Mnogi su ljudi komentirali sa 'bravo', 'svaka čast', 'hrabar čovjek' itd. Ali naši dežurni istraživači krivaca su lutali kroz tekst tražeći nekakvu kvaku. I pronašli su svašta. Pronašli su temu ali ne između redova. Kao prvo tko šiša vozača, to mu je posao. Kakvo je to poduzeće kojem se zapali autobus. Nekoga treba strpati u zatvor. Kriv je Milan Bandić. Kako u autobus može stati 150 ljudi Ova je linija uvijek pretrpana. Komunjare za bivše vlasti nisu osigurale remont autobusa gradskog poduzeća. To je moguće samo u Hrvatskoj, u americi nije. Niti u Austriji. Klika na vlasti uopće ne brine o svojim građanima. Ne zaboravimo da je Mesić predsjednik ove države. Sigurno ovo mora imati i nekakve veze s tim. Tada dolazi još malo ulja na vatru is susjednih nam zemalja i onda se sve vraća na klasičnu završnicu. Kakvi su vam to autobusi Vi takve ni nemate. Vaše vuku konji. A ti si glup. Što komentiraš ako ne znaš razmišljati Bla...bla... Preskočio sam 'stručne' izraze namijenjene vrijeđanju nečijeg mentalnog sklopa (da ne blatim ovdje po postu). Uh, kak' se ti ljudi silno zabavljaju. Ili bar misle da je tako. Gomila Zoro osvetnika koja traži pravdu za nekoga. Svatko tko pronađe vezu između mačke koja je zaglavila na drvetu i aktualne vlasti koja ima prste u tome sam sebi daje bodove za inteligenciju. Jer drugi nisu bili u stanju vidjeti tako očiglednu činjenicu. Ti ljudi pročitaju članak i tada se bave onime što je bilo prije te vijesti i naravno što je sve moglo biti nakon događaja. Što smo sve u stanju napraviti (mala satira javnog mnjenja) Mačka je zaglavila na drvetu, došli su vatrogasci s ljestvama i skinuli je na veselje četverogodišnje djevojčice. Kad bi to bila vijest konstrukcija bi mogla biti slijedeća. Porezni obveznici plaćaju da vatrogasci skidaju mačke s drveta dok naša obala gori. Smijeniti sve šefove vatrogasaca, zatvoriti vatrogasce koji su sudjelovali, naplatiti roditeljima djevojčice izlazak vatrogasaca na teren, svakako srušiti aktualnu gradsku i državnu vlast. Nadalje, drvo na koje se mačka popela je sigurno već trulo, s obzirom da je tako visoko znači da je i staro, tko god uređuje gradske parkove treba biti odgovoran. Isto i oni koji su odgovorne postavili po političkoj podobnosti umjesto po sposobnosti. I naravno srušiti vladu. Vlasnike mačke treba također kazniti jer su pustili da mačka bez ogrlice luta gradom i da se popne na drvo, mačka bi mogla biti bolesna ili zaražena, mogao je netko nastradati. Osim toga sigurno su je vodili da uneredi travnjak kako to čine neodgovorni vlasnici kućnih ljubimaca. Ili im je jednostavno pobjegla što znači da se ne brinu o njoj. A mačka se vjerojatno popela na drvo jer se uplašila opasnog psa, vjerojatno rotvajlera ili pitbulla, pa i njihove vlasnike treba kazniti, a o tome treba povesti istragu društvo za zaštitu životinja jer je mačka pretrpjela veliki strah. Nedaj bože da je mačka neke rijetke pasmine, jer je sigurno uvezena bez papira, a otac djevojčice je lovu za tu životinju namaknuo pronevjerom u jednom velikom državnom poduzeću. U kojem je direktor podoban. Krivica vlasti se ovdje podrazumijeva (napomena: ako je slučajno navedena osoba nije u stranci na vlasti onda je kriva ona prethodna vlast, pa ih treba protjerati). Intervencija vatrogasaca na 20 minuta je zaustavila promet u predmetnoj ulici pa je javni prijevoz kasnio na odredišta i izračunato je da je pretrpio gubitke od cca 400.000 kuna. Bez PDV-a. Da ne zaboravimo spomenuti novinare, oni su glupi, članak je loše napisan i bave se mačkama dok nam država grca u problemima i kradu nas na sve strane. Krive su novine, njihov vlasnik koji nije iz Hrvatske i naravno oni koji su im novine prodali. A tu, pogađate, prste ima i jedna od kronološki poredanih vlasti. Ako se u komentar ubaci netko iz naše sjeverne susjedne republike s primjedbom o glupom trošenju novaca u Hrvatskoj, njima se odgovara da je njima lakše jer vatrogasni kamion s ljestvama iz Ljubljane može dosegnuti svako drvo do granice bez ikakvog utroška goriva. Ako se ubaci netko iz istočne republike s bilo kojom primjedbom, njih se samo podsjeća da su poveli rat i sad su zavidni što unatoč tome mi brinemo o svojim građanima pa makar i spašavanjem mačke koju nedužna djevojčica silno voli. Ako se javi dijaspora, oni obično rade usporedbu o načinu rješavanja istog problema tamo gdje su oni, njima se obično kaže da šute jer oni ne plaćaju porez ovdje i da nemaju pojma. Na kraju između ostalog dodaje se i začin od raznih prijedloga. Osim standardnog prijedloga da se sruši aktualna vlast, predlaže se i zabrana držanja mačaka, porez na mačke, osnivanje specijalne jedinice za spašavanje mačaka, rušenje sveg visokog drveća... Konstrukcija gotova. Mačka je dobila veliku medijsku pažnju i svi su zadovoljili svoje frustracije, strahove, entuzijazam i sproveli svoju šank-političku aktivnost s tendencijom stvaranja karijere. Ljudi moje, nezgode i nesreće se događaju. Svi se veselimo sretnom ishodu. Neka tako i ostane. Ne treba natjeravati mak na konac. Izraz da u svakom zlu ima nešto dobro je upravo namijenjena tome, izvucimo iz zla ono što se može, naučimo nešto iz toga i krenimo dalje. Traženje zla u dobrom je upravo besmisleno. Ako je nešto dobro onda je dobro. Ako ima u tome malih negativnosti, naučimo i iz njih nešto i opet krenimo dalje. Optimus i pessimus Ako je optimist samo neobaviješteni pesimist, kako se neki vole šaliti, onda prihvatimo to samo kao zanimljivu i zabavnu igru riječi, ne i kao stil života ili svjetonazor. Latinski pessimus znači najgore. Optimus znači najbolje. Čemu mi težimo Optimizam i pesimizam ne označavaju nikad pravo stanje stvari veće samo naš stav prema njima, oni ne dokazuju ništa već izražavaju naše težnje i ciljeve te samim tim usmjeravaju i naše djelovanje. I osobno i javno. Optimisti nešto rade jer žele nešto napraviti i pri tome griješe i uče. Pesimisti samo sjede i gunđaju, makako bili dobro obaviješteni. Od silnih obavijesti i informacija oni ni ne započinju ništa jer već znaju da neće ispasti dobro, a ako nisu sigurni potrudit će se da to spoznaju. I zamjeraju onima koji se pokrenu. Ponekad i optimisti vide uzaludnost svojih nastojanja pa ipak pokušaju, vjerujući da će putem nešto naići, da će se dosjetiti nečeg dobrog, da će ipak riješiti nešto drugačije i bolje nego što to izgleda na početku. Pesimisti pak ponekad uvide da bi nekakva situacija mogla završiti i dobro ali to se kosi s njihovim pravilima života pa ulože mnogo vremena na gunđanje i skupljanje 'informacija' kojhe će kraju pokazati da to ipak neće moći. Optimist će u dva dana napraviti nešto s nikakvnim, polovičnim ili dobrim rezultatom. Bez obzira na rezultat stiče dodatno iskustvo i drugi put može biti bolji. Pesimist će pak potrošiti tjedan dana kako bi uvjerio sebe da se uopće ne isplati započinjati. Optimist gleda problem i traži rješenje, pesimist gleda u rješenje i traži probleme Ako govorimo o budućnosti. No, ova dva stava se protežu i u ostala vremena. Dok optimisti u lošim događajima traže tragove svjetla koji ukazuju na pravi put, pesimisti u svakom pozitivnom događaju traže mrlje koje će baciti sjenu na blještavilo. Generalno, ne vidim u tome korist, osim vlastite udobnosti u naslonjaču i totalnu neaktivnost jer je svaki napor 'osuđen na propast'. Najzanimljivije je da u svakoj pesimističko-optimističkoj raspravi i traženju pravde i prave istine zapravo nema pobjednika. Jer svaka je situacija ista, razlikuje se samo kut i način gledanja. Je li čaša do polovice napunjena vodom napola puna ili napola prazna Je li dan sunčan s povremenom naoblakom ili je oblačan s povremenim sunčanim periodima Živimo li da bi radili ili radimo li da bi živjeli Hoće li idući mjesec biti bolji ili gori Kvare li ljudi novac ili novac kvari ljude Ne volim te jer ti ne voliš mene ili ti ne voliš mene jer ja ne volim tebe Određuje li naš um naše postupke ili naši postupci određuju naš um Jeli ulaz u EU napredak ili nazadovanje Na sva oba pitanja mogu se dati dva odgovora. I oba su točna! Jer je istina jedna. U svemu ima i dobrog i lošeg samo je naš kut gledanja drugačiji, pa jedni dobrim osvjetljavaju mrak dok drugi mrljama zastiru svjetlost. U odnosu na sunce usred dana plamen svijeće je, na primjer, toliko beznačajan da ga ne treba ni spominjati. Ali pomislite da se nalazite u tamnoj sobi usred mrkle noći. Tada i jedna mala svijeća postaje sunce. Svaku tamu njome možete osvijetliti i krenuti putem prema rješenju. Vidi li itko smisao u pokušaju da zatamni dnevno svjetlo nečim veličine svijeće. U redu, nek bude i veličine mjeseca. Pa čak i za pomrčine sunca ne vlada totalni mrak. I nije kraj svijeta. Ugodan vam vikend. Znam da će biti naporan i pun problema ali potrudimo se da u ponedjeljak upamtimo sve ono što je bilo dobro, čak i kad je bilo blizu katastrofe.

    Hej Christoffer Väldigt intressant inlägg du har skrivit, jag tänkte lägga till lite tips och tricks som dina läsare av detta inlägg kanske är intresserad av. 1. Baklänkar a. Din ”pagerank” baseras på kvaliteten av sajter som länkar till dig, om en sida som har pagerank 4 länkar till dig så räknas det bättre än en med bara rank 3 b. Ytterligare är kvalitén på hur populär eller av vilken authoritetsnivå sidan har, en stor blogg eller en nyhetssida som omnämner dig tar dig snabbt från rank 1 till 4 2. Antalet Utbundna länkar a. Om din blogg länkar till 100 externa sidor så kommer din pagerank delas i 100 delar, så rank 4 kommer delas i 100 och den externa sajten får +rank 4/100. Så det gynnas att bara länka till några få externa sidor som är innehållsrika. 3. Design och struktur a. Din struktur kanske inte är avgörande direkt, men genom att ha en bra design med W3 validering och en ren design hjälper detta sökmotroerna att scanna av din sida.

              Comment on Pajtić: Opozicija da zauzme radikalno drugačiji pristup, inače je saučesnik by Srđan   
    @Max Sećam se odlično tog čuvenog bojkota iz 1997. godine: do istog je došlo sveobuhvatnim dogovorom celokupne tadašnje opozicije zbog krajnje nefer izbornih, a naročito medijskih uslova. Podsetiću da su tada i OEBS i čitava međunarodna zajednica tvrdili da izbori neće biti smatrani legitimnim ako makar jedna opoziciona stranka ne izađe na izbore (Šešeljevu SRS s pravom nisu ubrajali u bilo kakvu opoziciju). E, onda je Vuk Drašković (jašta, Šešeljev kum) prekršio dogovor, odustao od bojkota i izašao na izbore, verujući u svom drogiranom stanju da je sada čitav opozicioni teren njegov. Uzgred, evo jednog malog podsetnika na to vreme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prL1qcnHoIM

              Recarregando as Energias   

    Você é como eu que mora na cidade grande e sente falta de ter contato com a natureza? Pois é, mas nem sempre foi assim. Quando criança passava minhas férias entre o litoral e o interior de São Paulo, e no Sul de Minas, na casa dos meus tios. A gente cresce, começa a trabalhar e muitas vezes não tem mais tanto tempo e disposição para dar uma escapada da vida adulta.

    Apesar de morar numa casa com bastante verde e num bairro mais afastado do centro, ultimamente estava precisando me desconectar de tudo, e curtir o silêncio da vida no interior. E lá fui eu.

    Dia claro e a lua lá no cantinho, toda linda. O tempo passa tão devagar que até conseguimos observar nossa sombra.

    Foram poucos dia, mas suficientes para recarregar as energias, me inspirar com as cores, aromas e sabores que só a natureza é capaz de nos dar. Você já parou pra pensar que não existem cores que não se combinam na natureza? Você chega numa fazenda ou no meio do mato e vê inúmeras plantas diferentes, com cores diversas e todas elas estão em harmonia, inclusive com o céu, as nuvens, a terra...

    A mesma árvore com os pontinhos pretos e amarelos. Lindos os passáros descansando...

    Detalhes da casa em Corrégo do Bom Jesus MG...a super trama da dna aranha, sendo abençoada pela Nossa Senhora. Pé de urucum carregado. Trouxe umas sementinhas para testar no tingimento natural de tecidos.

    Olha a balança que encontrei no porão dos meus tios. Tem uns 100 anos e já estou louca pra trazer para casa.

    Passeio por outras cidadezinhas, está é Gonçalves MG. Um amor! Olha as combinações de cores...

    Uma das muitas lojinhas fofas de Gonçalves. Nela comprei um doce de leite maravilhoso, que aliás é meu doce favorito...gosto mais que chocolate!

    Bandeirinhas feitas com latas, ideia bacana pra deixar na área externa. O ferrugem deixa as peças ainda mais legais. 

    Costas MG, outra cidade no meio do caminho. Olha este céu maravilhoso! 

    O dia amanhecendo com neblina em Cambuí MG...era hora de me despedir.

    E foi assim neste clima que voltei inspirada para minha casa (aliás eu adoro a cidade e me considero bem urbana), e pronta para encarar o segundo semestre que vem por aí.

              Nam Vo   

    Accomplished and highly sought-after makeup artist, Nam Vo, has just a few obsessions—dewy skin, Vogue Paris, sexy women and classically beautiful hair. And while the first three passions seem like obvious fixations for Nam, it also comes as no surprise that the last obsession snuck into the mix. Hair is in her DNA. “Both of my parents are hairstylists, and growing up around salons gave me a deep appreciation for the art of hair,” she said. So when Oribe Hair Care needed a makeup artist to pull off some magic behind the scenes at our January event, Front Row, Nam, whose signature look is a combination of glowing natural beauty and subtle sexiness, was the perfect fit. “I am the painter and the hairstylist is the sculptor, so it makes total sense for me to join the excitement of the Oribe segment at Front Row,” said Nam. And whether she is backstage in Miami or halfway across the world putting final touches on a cover look, Nam keeps the goal of her art simple. “Makeup is what you want it to be. It always comes down to whatever makes you feel pretty.”

    How did you get your start in the industry?

    Like many other makeup artists, I started behind the counter at my local mall. I worked for MAC, NARS and Shiseido, but eventually realized that my career would be stunted if I stayed in San Francisco. I decided to be like Madonna and move to New York City with $35 and a dream. Well, I had a little more than the $35, but I like the drama that brings. It was the wildest and riskiest thing I ever did. New York has always been my favorite city as well as the creative capital of the world, so in 2008 I made the move as the economy was collapsing. New York brings out highest highs and lowest lows, but it has made my career what it is today. This city is a big part of who I am now.

    What do you consider to be your big break?

    Honestly, nothing stands out as my “big break.” My entire career has been slow and steady. I started assisting at small, local magazines where I was able to book my own beauty teams and eventually the Elles and the Vogues came calling. This is when I got the opportunity to really develop my portfolio and make it next level.

    Who is your makeup inspiration?

    My makeup inspiration is a what, not a who. Vogue Paris is my editorial go-to. I like to make women look and feel sexy with makeup and Vogue Paris perfectly describes my esthetic. I want to make women look like women.

    Give us your best makeup tips.

    It all starts with beautiful skin. To be frank, genes play a big role—products can only take you so far when combatting lifestyle and stress, so hopefully you win the DNA lottery. But for those of us who didn’t get lucky, I suggest investing in a skin care regimen, sun block and facial massages. When you take care of your skin, makeup will glide onto the face better and just look better overall. Moist, dewy skin is a great canvas to work on. After great skin, I always suggest picking your favorite feature and making it the focal point. It could be your eyes, lips, cheekbones, anything. Learn how to make that feature stand out. And if you are absolutely goofy with makeup, a clean, simple look is the way to go. Finally, I want to caution against the ’90s makeup and contouring tricks that are back in style. There is a place for contouring—red carpets and photo shoots—but people are taking it a bit far. Tasteful contouring is great, but too much can actually age you.

    What is your favorite look for winter?

    I’m a dewy skin groupie year round. To me it doesn’t matter if you are sunbathing in the Caribbean or freezing on the slopes in Aspen, luminous, healthy skin is a must. But for the winter season, I love a beautiful berry-stained cheek and a sexy eye. Holiday parties are the perfect time to play up a few features.

    Is there one shoot that sticks out as your most memorable?

    I did a recent photo shoot with photographer Gavin O’Neill where I tried a new makeup technique that I am calling oil painting. I massaged the model’s skin with oil and mixed gold oil into the foundation for an incredibly incandescent, glowy editorial look. I love the way it turned out and think oil painting is the next big thing. No matter what shoot I’m on, I always try to see what is out there and what I can do to make it better and add my #NamVoGlow touch. It’s important to know where we came from in order to know where we are going.

    What is your biggest career accomplishment so far?

    Being able to inspire and open up doors for others has been what I am most proud of to date. When assistants write to me or meet with me for advice I tell them that there is no big secret or new formula to success in this business—be nice to people, work hard and love what you do. If you show up on time and exude good energy, people will want to work with you and doors will open.

    Why did you decide to collaborate with Oribe Hair Care?

    Oribe’s image of a powerful, sexy woman is a vision that I believe in. When a woman feels confident there is a positive shift in her energy. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s when grunge and extreme makeup were popular, Oribe set himself apart by continually making women look sexy and feel strong. Trends come and go, but beautiful, poised women are always in style.

    What is your favorite Oribe Hair Care Product?

    I live and breathe Dry Texturizing Spray. This product changed the game. Every photo shoot I walk into has at least one bottle of Dry on set. I use it for added texture, sexiness and grit. I like dewy on the face and Dry on the hair. I also love the shampoos and conditioners. Oribe products are little bits of luxury. When I use them I feel like a queen.

    Why did you decide to join the Front Row creative team?

    Throughout my career, I have worked most intimately with hairstylists. We share the same design space and feed off of each other’s creativity and energy. The elevated editorial looks that have been created by the talented Oribe Education Team are very much in my wheelhouse. I’m excited to be apart of it. Where are you pulling inspiration from in order to create the looks that we will see on stage in January? Every show segment is unique and individualized and each hairstylist has a very clear vision of what they would like to see. I will go in and add the sugar and spice until we get exactly the look we want. This time, I’m inspired by the actual show vision of glamorous, bold, dramatic style.

    What are you most looking forward to during the four-day event?

    I’m most excited about being backstage and being apart of everyone’s unique esthetic coming together to create something beautiful. The energy and excitement is going to be invigorating. I’m ready for a room full of creative minds to kickoff the New Year.

              Natural Waves   

    Oribe Hair Care was behind the scenes at more than a dozen shows during New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016. Here, we give you a sneak peek of the on-trend looks to try this spring.

    Subtle waves and natural texture abounded at this season’s edgiest shows. As the trend moves away from classic ringlets and eases into a more organic and laid-back look, our lead stylists used Oribe products to send a carefree style down the runway at Kempner, ADEAM, Elie Tahari, Sally LaPointe and Gabriela Cadena. Scroll through the slideshow above and read below to get the looks.

    Hair by Amy Farid

    Lead hairstylist Amy Farid for Oribe Hair Care created sophisticated, lived-in waves for Kempner’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Designer and co-founder Meggie Kempner stayed true to her brand’s DNA this season and debuted sexy separates and dresses that her grandmother, socialite Nan Kempner, might wear if she were to go on a road trip today. “The look is expensive, but cool,” said Farid. “We wanted the hair to reflect the elegance of the brand and the clothes.”  

    1. Spray Run-Through Detangling Primer from roots to ends.
    2. Next, apply Curl Gloss and blowout the hair, which will give you high shine and hydration without making the hair feel heavy.
    3. Spray Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray in section-by-section and use a 1-inch curling iron to create bends in the hair, directing the barrel away from the hair. Use your hands to break up the waves for a more natural look.
    4. Finish with a generous misting of Superfine Hair Spray to hold the style.

    Hair by Yannick d’Is

    Designer Hanako Maeda’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection for ADEAM was strongly inspired by her Japanese roots. The designer mixed modern prints with traditional Japanese elements, which resulted in designs that were a beautiful marriage of East meets West. Lead hairstylist Yannick d’Is for Oribe Hair Care wanted to create a youthful, fresh look to complement the clothes. “I wanted the hair to look textured while keeping it clean and touchably soft,” said d’Is.

    1. Prep the hair by spraying Foundation Mist from roots to ends, then create a middle part.
    2. Using a large barrel curling iron, create bends in the hair by holding the iron vertically rather than horizontally. “Holding the iron horizontally to the head creates too much volume for this look,” said d’Is.
    3. Use Thick Dry Finishing Spray to create texture in the hair, keeping the application light so the hair looks fresh and clean.
    4. Finish with a misting of Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray for soft hold.

    Elie Tahari
    Hair by Joey George

    Designer Elie Tahari’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection was inspired by the idea of a futuristic nomadic girl in the desert. Lead hairstylist Joey George for Oribe Hair Care created a natural, organic look to complement the clothes. “No brushes were used—we relied on our hands to enhance the natural texture of each girl’s hair,” said Joey. “Some of the girls needed more texture, so I created a very subtle, almost invisible, wave for them.”

    1. Prep the hair by spraying Foundation Mist from roots to ends until the hair is damp. If the hair is thicker and more coarse, layer with Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray.
    2. Diffuse the hair dry, encouraging natural texture.
    3. Once the hair is completely dry, use a large barrel curling iron to create irregular waves.
    4. Finish by breaking up the waves with your hands to create a more organic, natural look and mist with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.

    Sally LaPointe
    Hair by James Pecis

    Sally LaPointe’s sophisticated silhouettes hit the Spring/Summer 2016 runway, featuring hair created by James Pecis using Oribe Hair Care. James described the inspiration behind the look as bi-polar, dual textured hair for the girl who starts things, but doesn’t finish them. Accented by a cool sequined brow and glowing skin, the textured hair was parted in the middle.

    1. Section out the back of the hair from ear to ear and over the top of the head, creating a center part down the middle.
    2. From the bottom up, apply Volumista Mist for Volume section by section.
    3. Brush the hair flat, apply spray and press it down using your hands.
    4. On the top layer of hair, apply Maximista Thickening Spray and blow-dry for a more natural look.
    5. Use Dry Texturizing Spray to add life throughout the back of the hair, and finish with Superfine Hair Spray for hold.    

    Gabriela Cadena
    Hair by Tomo Jidai

    Designer Gabriela Cadena's Spring/Summer 2016 collection hit the runway showcasing linear print motifs and feminine silhouettes. To complement the art deco‐inspired collection, lead hairstylist Tomo Jidai for Oribe Hair Care created an effortless yet polished style reminiscent of the middle parts and simple waves that reigned supreme in the '90s. “I was inspired by the idea of nothingness.” said Jomo. “Modern girls are no longer doing, big over­‐the­‐top curls, and I wanted the style to be believable.”

    1.  Prep hair by lightly misting Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray from roots to ends. If the hair is thicker and more coarse, prep with Run­‐Through Detangling Primer.
    2. Blast hair with a blow dryer, encouraging natural texture.
    3. Once the hair is dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create a barely-there waves. Hold heat to the hair for about one second.
    4. Break up the waves with your fingers to create a more subtle, natural look and spray with Dry Texturing Spray to add grip and texture.
    5. To finish mist with Imperméable Anti­‐Humidity Spray.

              Sleek and Down   

    Oribe Hair Care was backstage at more than two dozen shows during New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015. Here, we take you behind the scenes, highlighting the top hair trends to try this fall.

    Sleek styles often pair well with high fashion, and they were definitely on display at The Blonds, Gabriela Cadena, Yigal Azrouël and Narciso Rodriguez. The interpretations for this trend are endless, from strong center parts to styles that mix volume and slicked-back shine. Click through our slideshow to discover the simply sleek looks created by our lead hairstylists using Oribe products and learn how to achieve them.

    Gabriela Cadena
    Hair by Tomo Jidai

    For designer Gabriela Cadena’s debut runway show, which featured incredible 360-degree New York City views from the 64 th floor of One World Trade Center and an all-star model lineup including Anna Ewers, Lindsey Wixson, Frankie Rayder, Jourdan Dunn, Ming Xi and Binx Walton, hairstylist Tomo Jidai created a simple and modern look to complement Cadena’s red carpet-worthy collection. “We were very excited about the models for the show,” said Jidai. “So we wanted to focus on their natural beauty, and the dresses, with simple hair inspired by the late ’90s.”

    Get the Look:

    1. Prep damp hair withRun-Through Detangling Primer from mid-shaft to ends and comb through. Create a clean—but not strong—center part.
    2. For fine hair, apply Maximista Thickening Spray. If your hair is thicker, use Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse. Blow-dry and tuck the hair behind the ears.
    3. Apply Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream through the lengths of the hair for a sleek and effortless look.

    Yigal Azrouël
    Hair by James Pecis

    Yigal Azrouël was inspired by art movements such as Russian Modernism and Supremetism when creating his Fall/Winter 2015 collection, and he included many geometric elements into his designs. To complement the clothing, key hairstylist James Pecis created a very clean and controlled hair look with a strong center part and blunt ends.

    Get the Look:

    1. Saturate the hair with Foundation Mist and create a strong center part. Cut the hair (or
    2. hair extensions) in a very straight line across the bottom.
    3. Spray Maximista Thickening Spray throughout the lengths to add strength and control to the hair and blow-dry with a flat brush.
    4. Use Superfine Strong Hair Spray at the sides to add a little shine and keep them lightly slicked back.

    Narciso Rodriguez
    Hair by Paul Hanlon

    For Fall 2015, Narciso Rodriguez was inspired by the traditional dress of Indian rulers, translating that into designs for the modern woman with the collection. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon noted that Rodriguez, whom he’s worked with for years, never gives specific direction on the hair; he simply tells him the feeling he wants to convey. This time, Hanlon said the designer wanted to go back to his DNA and evoke the quintessential Narciso woman: “It’s not about trying to follow trends,” he explained. “The hair has a softness and sensibility of a real woman. It looks executed but, at the same time, not too done, and it has a slight masculinity to it with the low side part and control around the face.” Hanlon used Oribe Hair Care to create the look, with a left part that was tucked behind the ears and had movement in the back.

    Get the Look:

    1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist and create a low left side part.
    2. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse throughout the top of the hair and blow-dry with a Mason Pearson brush.
    3. Use a curling iron through the mid-length to create subtle waves, and apply Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil to the ends.
    4. Add Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste at the roots for texture and a more lived-in look.
    5. Next, comb a small amount of Original Pomade through the side part for a little sheen and hold, and then rake through with your finger to break up the uniformity.
    6. Finish with Foundation Mist to help break down the waves for a more natural look.
    7. Go back in with more Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil if needed.

    The Blonds
    Hair by Kien Hoang

    The Blonds looked to the famous Stanley Kubrick film Clockwork Orange to inspire their Fall 2015 collection, which consisted of couture-style garments that were hand stitched and embroidered. For their military-themed runway show at Milk Studios, The Blonds—and hairstylist Kien Hoang—wanted each model to have a very similar look. “They were supposed to be carbon copies of each other,” explained Hoang. “So we used waist-length blonde hair pieces to tie the looks together.” Using Oribe products, Hoang created a big-and-sleek style at the top, then attached the blonde hair to fall down the length of their back. Kien gave each model a tight double French twist in the back to hide away some of the hair and form a base on which to secure the blonde pieces.

    Get the Look:

    1. Divide the hair into two sections by clipping the hair at the top of the head. For the bottom section, flat-iron the hair with Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray.
    2. Create a double French twist with the bottom section of the hair, which will serve as a base for the blonde hair piece.
    3. Prep the blonde hair piece with Shine Light Reflecting Spray and place it between the two hair sections.
    4.  Unclip the top section of the hair and spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the roots. Backcomb the hair for height and volume.
    5. Use Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray and a Mason Pearson brush to brush back the hair, forming a square shape. Use Original Pomade to slick back the sides of the hair.
    6. Finish the look with Superfine Strong Hair Spray.

              Ryan Estep   
    Dissatisfied with his job as a construction worker, Brooklyn-based artist Ryan Estep turned to art to fulfill his desire to unveil truths in the world around him…and never looked back. Estep paints with unlikely mediums like lipstick and drywall mud on linen to create existential works of art. We asked Estep to recreate the Oribe logo and he rose to our request with a sculpture cast in soap and gold leaf. Read on to find out more about Estep’s inspirations and personal style.

    Give us a little bit of information about your art background. What spawned your interest in art?

    Art appeared to me out of necessity. By the age of 25, I had realized traditional venues of expression never fully vetted the world around me. I was working as a construction worker at the time, and somewhere between fatigue and repetition, my mind began to wander. Art happened…and I haven't looked back.

    How would you describe your work?

    Describing my work has always been difficult. A work is successful when it stands uncomfortably before language…when it is able to communicate in a manner that I am unable to express otherwise.

    Why did you decide to render the Oribe logo the way you did?

    I wanted to create an object that paralleled our bodies’ rituals. The cold public domain of concrete contains the Oribe logo pressed into the corporeal materials of soap and gold leaf.

    What or who has been the biggest influence in your art?

    My background as a mundane working class kid from the Midwest provides an inescapable undertow of influence.

    If you could work on a project with any artist—living or dead—who would it be and what would you like to do?

    John Kelsey has my undivided attention at the moment. A hydra of talent, he's created a diverse condition of critique I really admire. I would love the chance to put a show together with him exploring the theme of guile.

    What's the best piece of advice you've ever given? Received?

    Given: "Who cares, just do it." Received: "Don't jump in that pit!"

    How do you normally wear your hair? What's the sexiest way a girl can wear her hair?

    I wear my hair short with a part. What I find sexy is small details: an odd braid, a hiccup during a trim that is now a badass asymmetrical bang. Organic weirdness is always appreciated.

    How would you describe your style? Do you think fashion and art overlap?

    My style is a Shaker interior—muted but purposeful. I do think fashion and art overlap. The borders of modern art dissolved long ago, and in a world where anything goes, I find myself increasingly appreciating the constraints of fashion to form and function.

    Do you have any pet peeves about the art world?

    I wish more collectors had guts.

    Do you have any exciting upcoming projects we should look out for?

    I just began a process of transcribing a small section of my DNA into a plant. I'm hacking an old CAD printer to use buffalo bone marrow as ink and there is a series of drawings I'll be doing with Hirudo leeches attached to my hand I'm pretty excited about.

    Pooled-DNA sequencing identifies genomic regions of selection in Nigerian isolates of Plasmodium falciparum.

    Parasit Vectors. 2017 Jun 29;10(1):320

    Authors: Oyebola KM, Idowu ET, Olukosi YA, Awolola TS, Amambua-Ngwa A

    BACKGROUND: The burden of falciparum malaria is especially high in sub-Saharan Africa. Differences in pressure from host immunity and antimalarial drugs lead to adaptive changes responsible for high level of genetic variations within and between the parasite populations. Population-specific genetic studies to survey for genes under positive or balancing selection resulting from drug pressure or host immunity will allow for refinement of interventions.
    METHODS: We performed a pooled sequencing (pool-seq) of the genomes of 100 Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Nigeria. We explored allele-frequency based neutrality test (Tajima's D) and integrated haplotype score (iHS) to identify genes under selection.
    RESULTS: Fourteen shared iHS regions that had at least 2 SNPs with a score > 2.5 were identified. These regions code for genes that were likely to have been under strong directional selection. Two of these genes were the chloroquine resistance transporter (CRT) on chromosome 7 and the multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) on chromosome 5. There was a weak signature of selection in the dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) gene on chromosome 4 and MDR5 genes on chromosome 13, with only 2 and 3 SNPs respectively identified within the iHS window. We observed strong selection pressure attributable to continued chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine use despite their official proscription for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria. There was also a major selective sweep on chromosome 6 which had 32 SNPs within the shared iHS region. Tajima's D of circumsporozoite protein (CSP), erythrocyte-binding antigen (EBA-175), merozoite surface proteins - MSP3 and MSP7, merozoite surface protein duffy binding-like (MSPDBL2) and serine repeat antigen (SERA-5) were 1.38, 1.29, 0.73, 0.84 and 0.21, respectively.
    CONCLUSION: We have demonstrated the use of pool-seq to understand genomic patterns of selection and variability in P. falciparum from Nigeria, which bears the highest burden of infections. This investigation identified known genomic signatures of selection from drug pressure and host immunity. This is evidence that P. falciparum populations explore common adaptive strategies that can be targeted for the development of new interventions.

    The Gut Microbiome of the Vector Lutzomyia longipalpis Is Essential for Survival of Leishmania infantum.

    MBio. 2017 Jan 17;8(1):

    The vector-borne disease leishmaniasis, caused by Leishmania species protozoa, is transmitted to humans by phlebotomine sand flies. Development of Leishmania to infective metacyclic promastigotes in the insect gut, a process termed metacyclogenesis, is an essential prerequisite for transmission. Based on the hypothesis that vector gut microbiota influence the development of virulent parasites, we sequenced midgut microbiomes in the sand fly Lutzomyia longipalpis with or without Leishmania infantum infection. Sucrose-fed sand flies contained a highly diverse, stable midgut microbiome. Blood feeding caused a decrease in microbial richness that eventually recovered. However, bacterial richness progressively decreased in L. infantum-infected sand flies. Acetobacteraceae spp. became dominant and numbers of Pseudomonadaceae spp. diminished coordinately as the parasite underwent metacyclogenesis and parasite numbers increased. Importantly, antibiotic-mediated perturbation of the midgut microbiome rendered sand flies unable to support parasite growth and metacyclogenesis. Together, these data suggest that the sand fly midgut microbiome is a critical factor for Leishmania growth and differentiation to its infective state prior to disease transmission.
    IMPORTANCE: Leishmania infantum, a parasitic protozoan causing fatal visceral leishmaniasis, is transmitted to humans through the bite of the sand fly Lutzomyia longipalpis Development of the parasite to its virulent metacyclic state occurs in the sand fly gut. In this study, the microbiota within the Lu. longipalpis midgut was delineated by 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequencing, revealing a highly diverse community composition that lost diversity as parasites developed to their metacyclic state and increased in abundance in infected flies. Perturbing sand fly gut microbiota with an antibiotic cocktail, which alone had no effect on either the parasite or the fly, arrested both the development of virulent parasites and parasite expansion. These findings indicate the importance of bacterial commensals within the insect vector for the development of virulent pathogens, and raise the possibility that impairing the microbial composition within the vector might represent a novel approach to control of vector-borne diseases.

              Namorados: contrato de namoro estabelece diferença em relação a união estável   
    bit.ly/contratodenamoro | Uma das grandes questões do Direito de Família contemporâneo é saber se determinada relação afetiva é um namoro ou união estável. Com a evolução dos costumes e a maior liberdade sexual, esta linha divisória tornou-se muito tênue. Com isto, grande parte dos processos levados aos tribunais brasileiros que envolvem união estável, o cerne da discussão está na dificuldade de se diferenciar namoro de união estável. Namoro é o relacionamento entre duas pessoas sem caracterizar uma entidade familiar.

    Pode ser a preparação para constituição de uma família futura, enquanto na união estável, a família já existe. Assim, o que distingue esses dois institutos é o animus familiae, reconhecido pelas partes e pela sociedade (trato e fama). Existem namoros longos que nunca se transformaram em entidade familiar e relacionamentos curtos que logo se caracterizam como união estável. O mesmo se diga com relação à presença de filhos, que pode se dar tanto no namoro quanto na união estável.

    O namoro, por si só, não tem consequências jurídicas. Não acarreta, partilha de bens ou qualquer aplicação de regime de bens, fixação de alimentos ou direito sucessório. Se um casal de namorados adquire juntos um veículo, por exemplo, com o fim do relacionamento este bem poderá ser dividido, se não houver contrato escrito entre eles, de acordo com as regras do direito obrigacional. Neste sentido, pode-se dizer, então, que é possível haver uma “sociedade de fato” dentro de um namoro, sem que isto caracterize uma entidade familiar. Assim, por não se tratar de entidade familiar, as questões jurídicas concernentes ao namoro, como danos causados à pessoa, são discutidas no campo do direito comercial ou obrigacional.

    Namoro pode ser indício de prova para algumas situações jurídicas. Por exemplo, somado à negativa de realização de exame em DNA pode acarretar a declaração de suposta paternidade. Além disso, pode indicar o fumus boni iuris necessário à antecipação de tutela no pedido de alimentos gravídicos (Lei 11.804/2008). A Lei Maria da Penha (Lei 11.340/2006) também é aplicável nos casos de namoro.

    O namoro não tem prazo de validade. Conheço casal que namorou mais de 50 anos. Faz parte do exercício da autonomia privada optar por esta maneira de se relacionar e, da mesma forma, escolher não prosseguir, não constituindo o fim do namoro, por si só, uma ofensa a direito alheio ou configuração de ato ilícito.

    Ao Direito de Família interessa delinear um conceito de namoro para distingui-lo da união estável. Antes, se o casal não mantinha relação sexual eram apenas namorados, e se mantinham já se podia dizer que eram “amigados” ou “amasiados”. Hoje é comum, natural e saudável que casais de namorados mantenham relacionamento sexual, sem que isto signifique nada além de um namoro, e sem nenhuma consequência jurídica. Assim, o conteúdo sexual de uma relação amorosa que até pouco tempo era caracterizador, ou descaracterizador de um instituto ou outro, não é mais determinante ou definidor deste ou daquele instituto. E, para confundir ainda mais, namorados às vezes têm filhos, em geral sem planejar, o que por si só não descaracteriza o namoro e o eleva à categoria de união estável.

    Nestas relações vê-se também uma grande diferença entre a forma de se ver ou nomear tal relação. É muito comum os homens enxergarem ou entenderem que se trata apenas de um namoro, enquanto as mulheres, talvez por serem mais comprometidas com o amor, veem como união estável. Esse ângulo de visão diferente, somado à falta de um delineamento mais preciso sobre o namoro e união estável, tem levado os restos deste amor às barras dos tribunais, para que o juiz diga se é uma coisa ou outra. Estas demandas aumentaram principalmente após o advento da Lei 9.278/1996, que acertadamente abriu o conceito de união estável, isto é, retirou o prazo de cinco anos estabelecido na Lei 8.971/1994.

    Namorados podem até mesmo morar juntos, sem que isto caracterize uma união estável, pois há situações em que eles residem sob o mesmo teto, “dividem o apartamento” por questão de economia, como bem decidiu o STJ: "Este comportamento, é certo, revela-se absolutamente usual nos tempos atuais, impondo-se ao Direito, longe das críticas e dos estigmas, adequar-se à realidade social. (STJ, REsp 1454643 / RJ, Rel Min. Marco Aurélio Bellizze, 3ª Turma, pub. 10/03/2015)"

    Alguns casais, especialmente aqueles que já constituíram outra família anteriormente, para evitar futuros aborrecimentos ou demandas judiciais em razão da confusão desses dois conceitos, têm feito um contrato de namoro, ou uma “declaração de namoro”, dizendo que a relação entre as partes é apenas um namoro e que não têm intenção ou objetivo de constituírem uma família. E, se a realidade da vida descaracterizar o namoro, elevando-o ao status de união estável, fica desde já assegurado naquele contrato, ou declaração, qual será o regime de bens entre eles. Embora o contrato de namoro possa parecer o anti-namoro, muitos casais, em busca de uma segurança jurídica, e para evitar que a relação equivocadamente seja tida como união estável, desviando assim o animus dos namorados, têm optado por imprimir esta formalidade à relação. Apesar da polêmica em torno da validade e eficácia jurídica deste tipo de contrato, ele pode ser um bom instrumento jurídico para ajudar os casais a namorarem em paz.

              Happy Halloween! #Inktober zine in the works, as well as "Echidna and Echeveria" Accordion Book update   
    Happy Almost Halloween!

    It's my favorite Holiday, and am happy to celebrate with some drawings.  I'm going to be self-publishing a little character design zine of all my Inktober drawings, probably out early 2016.  I'd love to have it out for the Holidays, but it isn't practical with shows I already have coming up and a big trip home soon.

    Anyway, below are some Ink (and Jack O' Lantern) Cacti, Punny Ink and Gouache Cats, Ink and Marker DOTD characters I drew to honor my late Great Grandparents, Grandmother, and Grauntaunt, and a Zomb-balerina.  If you scroll past those, you can see an update on Mister Echidna!


    So, the next pictures are some further illustrations I've done on my "Echidna, Echeveria" project.  It's an illustrated story for kids, and I am going to initially be releasing it as a self-published Accordion Book.

    I have seen some great zines created in the accordion book style, and I am excited to draw something that can double as a self-published book, as well as a folded piece of art that can (literally) fold out and stand on its own.  Also, I love the tiny accordion books that I've seen my students in zine-making make, and am inspired to make one of my own.

    In my project, on one side, the book will showcase the part of the story where the Echidna gets lost in a Cacti Garden and makes a friend, and be in color (original drawn in Prismacolor pencil).  On the other, it will show another garden, where the animal friends Echidna got separated from, are still strolling through.

    Scroll below for some sketches I'm doing to prepare for drawing out this section.  Again, I won't have this finished in time for Christmas, but if you love spiky animals/plants, look for it around Valentine's Day of 2016 ^_^

    Thank you all for reading, and have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

              Region acknowledges exemplary citizens in Waterloo Region   

    Waterloo Region - This evening at Regional Council, several individuals will be recognized for their dedicated and tireless contributions that make a real difference in Waterloo Region.

    "We are very fortunate to have such dedicated citizens in our community who give so much of their time to the community in which we live,” said Ken Seiling, Regional Chair. “It is with great pride that we acknowledge the following citizens and their contributions at Regional Council tonight.”

    June Callwood Award - Peter Gray, Co-chair Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival was honoured in Toronto on April 14, 2015 with the prestigious June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award. Peter had a vision to educate youth about the importance of conserving and preserving our water resources. He has been a dedicated and active volunteer in seeing this concept grow from a local idea, into a province-wide endeavor. Peter has dedicated countless hours to this program over the last 20 years. His vision, commitment and passion have been instrumental to the successful goals of both the Waterloo-Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival and the Children’s Water Education Council. The local festival is committed to empowering children to become environmental stewards. Peter is especially proud when the children who participated in the program go on to become catalysts for change by taking new found respect back to their own environments.

    Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award Life Time Achievement Award – Patricia (Pat) Rosebrugh, Pat Rosebrugh has been a leader in local heritage conservation since the late 1960s. In the beginning, Pat and five other original members formed a heritage advocacy committee, which became the local branch of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario (ACO). Heritage Cambridge, now ACO Cambridge, plays a critical role in distributing information on the value of cultural heritage resources, and building and voicing the community’s support for heritage conservation. As a Regional volunteer, Pat was one of the original members of the Waterloo Regional Heritage Foundation (WRHF), founded in 1973. Pat served as the Heritage Cambridge representative on the WRHF for 10 years, sitting as Chair during 1981 and 1982. In her role as Chair, Pat helped to oversee the restoration of and officially open the Joseph Schneider Haus living history museum. Pat was also central to the recognition and restoration of McDougall Cottage. Ms. Rosebrugh has been recognized with an Award of Excellence by the Waterloo Region Heritage Foundation in 2004; and was inducted into the Cambridge Hall of Fame in 2014 and the Waterloo Region Hall of Fame as part of Heritage Cambridge, also in 2014.

    (* Ms. Rosebrugh will be recognized at the August 19, 2015 meeting of Council).

    2014 Ontario Senior of the Year Award – Chris Sheppard, has made an incredible difference in the lives of the residents at Sunnyside Seniors’ Services. He began volunteering in 2012, since then has contributed more than 700 hours of his time. Chris has visited one on one with countless male residents over the last two years. What stands out is the way he gets to know each person he visits and tailors his visits to their interests. Besides his weekly visits, he has planned and co-hosted the Christmas lights drive for the residents, accompanied residents to medical appointments and encourages residents to vote during elections. Chris is one of the driving forces behind the horticultural committee and hopes to label all the plants in the wildflower gardens and walkways at the residence. Chris has truly made a difference with the Sunnyside community.

    Waterloo Regional Heritage Foundation Award of Excellence - The Friends of the Joseph Schneider Haus is an independent group of heritage-minded volunteers that support and raise funds for the projects and programs of the Joseph Schneider Haus (JSH) Museum. The Friends group emerged over 25 years ago at a time when the continuing success of the Haus was in jeopardy, and over the years have helped the Haus develop into a cornerstone of cultural life in the Region of Waterloo. Special projects supported by the group include the museum and research wing of the Haus, constructed in 1987/1988; the Folk Artist-in-Residence program; the annual Quilt Block Contest; and the Edna Staebler Research Fellowship Award. The Friends also played a significant role in the Joseph Schneider Haus’ successful application for National Historic Site (NHS) status, which was granted in 2000. The JSH is indebted to this wonderful group of volunteers “who have freely given their time, expertise and support.

    Ontario heritage Trust Award: Youth Achievement Award - Norwell District Secondary School, Each year the Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival aims to educate more than 5,000 students in grades two to five about the importance of water in their daily lives. The weeklong festival requires the help of more than 500 volunteers to deliver this message. Since 2006, the students at Norwell District High School, located in Palmerston, Wellington County, have volunteered at the Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival. Michael Hendrik and a group of high school students help animate the 50 hands on, interactive learning centres. The high school students educate younger students about the importance of water by delivering several key messages: use water wisely, protect your water, examine the relationship between water and technology, and celebrate the role of water in the ecosystem. The students take their role very seriously and spend a great deal of time and effort preparing for the festival.

    The June Callwood Award recognizes dedicated individuals and non-profit organizations that, like the late June Callwood, have made a lasting and meaningful contribution to their communities or have provided significant support to volunteer activities.

    The Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement is program that recognizes volunteers for contributions to heritage conservation over a period of 25 years or more.

    The Ontario Senior of the Year Award gives each municipality in Ontario the opportunity to honour one outstanding local Ontarian who after the age of 65 has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of his or her community.

    The Waterloo Region Heritage Foundation Award of Excellence - The Awards of Excellence, inaugurated in 1983, are intended to recognize outstanding contributions by individuals, institutions and organizations to heritage preservation in Waterloo Region, in such areas as archaeology, archives, culture, education, genealogy, history, literature, media, natural history and others.

    Ontario Heritage Trust Award: Youth Achievement Award – The Ontario Heritage Trust Youth Achievement Award recognizes young volunteers who have also made important contributions to conserving Ontario’s heritage.

              Solen kommer tillbaka   
    Tänk att solen kommit tillbaka. Hoppas den är här för att stanna. Vore ju kul med åtminstone en fin vecka på semestern. Vi skulle ut på sjön i morgon men på grund av dålig planering samt att vi blivit bortbjudna till bästa Maria och Tobbe i morgon kväll så hoppar vi det och HOPPAS att det kan bli en fin dag i helgen istället så vi kan dra ut då.

    På altanfronten har vi precis kört iväg sista lasset med jord/grus. Vi har fraktat bort runt 15 släpkärror med jord/grus. Först grävt upp allt från tomten och ut i skottkärror till en hög utanför tomten och sen grävas upp därifrån och på släpkärran för att köras iväg och grävas av från släpkärran... Mycket grävande blir det. Nu ska inte jag ta åt mig den stora äran för jag har inte grävt hälften så mycket som Matte har gjort men jag har ändå grävt BRA MYCKET för min otränade kropp.
    Idag har vi även börjat väga in de första reglarna så i morgon fortsätter vi med det. Bilder kommer...

    Jag har ett par "gamla" kort som jag ännu inte visat upp. Det första var till min fina vän Heidis lilla Elsie när hon fyllde 3. Och det andra var till min farbror Hasse när han fyllde för några veckor sen. Melwin pratar fortfarande om "wawo Sasse" (farbror Hasse) och blev överlycklig härom dagen då vi äkte ut till dem för att låna deras släpkärra.

    Korten var allt jag hade att visa idag. Nu är det hundpromenad och sen sängen för att vila min trötta kropp så vi orkar upp och jobba i morgon bitti.

    Även om det varit mycket bilder på barnen här på bloggen på sistone så skapade jag ju faktiskt bloggen för två år sedan främst för att publicera mina kort jag gör. På sistone har jag insett hur kul det är att använda skisser att jobba efter. Mycket på grund av att jag har så kass fantasi. Då är det skönt att ha en "mall" att gå efter.

    Mitt första kort är till en utmaning på mixens blogg. Där fick man en skiss att gå efter och skissen ser ut såhär.

    Man har friheten att tolka skissen fritt och vrida och vända på den hur man vill. Jag har följt den ganska slaviskt. Här är mitt bidrag.

    Kortet är till en kompis till mig som fyller 30 (som vi alla 80'or gör i år =). Vi är bjudna hennes 30årsfest på lördag och temat är glitter. Så vad kunde passa bättre än att gå lös på kortet med en massa glitterlim =)

    Nästa kort gjorde jag till en annan utmaning i lördags då jag var på scrapträff. Där hade man också en skiss att gå efter samt att kortet skulle vara monokromatiskt, dvs man får endast använda en färgskala. Jag valde blått (stämpelmotivet fick dock avvika lite). Jag vet inte hur det gick för mig mer än att jag inte vann i alla fall =)
    För att jag ska kunna visa kortet nu var jag tvungen att censurera en del av det då mottagaren säkerligen är här inne och snokar. Jag får visa hela senare. Jag är så stolt att jag lyckades göra en sån "majarosett" alldeles själv. Den är inte på långa vägar så fin som proffsmajas rosetter men en bra början =)

    Jag har ett tredje kort klart också men det kan jag inte visa än... kommer snart...

    Tack snälla Suz som jag ALLTID får låna så mycket stämplar av och Veronica som jag fick låna den till andra bidraget av.

    Vad gäller livet i övrigt så rullar det på. Det går bra på jobbet och jag trivs bra. Idag var det dock ingen höjdare att cykla så det kom snöblandat regn.... Men Matte och Tilda skulle på babysim så de var tvungna att ha bilen.
    Heidi och barnen var här på middag ikväll och vi var hos dem igår. Hennes barn är underbara och låter Melwin låna precis vad han vill trots att han skriker så fort de försöker ta nåt som han har...

    Förresten... på tal om jobbet. Det har stått i tidningen att de ska skjuta av en del kanadagäss här i Nyköping. De ska visst skjuta ledarfåglarna för att på så sätt få bort dem. Inte helt fel med tanke på att det känns som att det finns fler kanadagäss än människor i den här stan ibland. Men vet ni var de gör det..... utanför mitt fönster på jobbet!!!!!! Jag som är både skotträdd och inte sådär överdrivet förtjust i att se saker dö framför ögonen på mig!!!!

    Kolla vad fint jag sopat gatan utanför våran grind =) Melwin var ju tvungen att ha nånstans att åka bobbycar. Igår var de dock och tog upp all sand så nu är det fint överallt. Till och med gräsmattan var fri från sand, hur gjorde de det?????

    Nu hoppas jag att våren kommer på riktigt snart. Det ska visst bli fint i helgen. Hoppas det stannar kvar =)

              MATTHEW WARD - 28.06.2017   


    Com saudações amorosas de todas as almas nesta estação, este é Matthew. Quando ouvem sobre desastres naturais, incêndios, acidentes de veículos e ataques terroristas, a tristeza sobre as vidas perdidas e a compaixão por aqueles que os amam são sentimentos naturais.

    Pensar em todas as almas afetadas por tais eventos e os milhões apanhados em crises humanitárias no contexto de lições cármicas escolhidas para que possam evoluir não é uma reação natural e, às vezes, então, se perguntam quando a violência e o sofrimento irão acabar.

    Sim, querida família, irá acabar. O carrossel cármico da Terra está abrandando sua velocidade. Quando a vida física termina para indivíduos que causam dor e circunstâncias traumáticas para outros fora dos contratos de alma, estes irão para um mundo espiritual de uma civilização profundamente imersa na terceira densidade onde, então, irão encarnar naquela população, entrando em seu ciclo cármico.

    As pessoas ainda irão transitar na Terra no momento em que escolherem em seus contratos de alma, todavia a sociedade saberá sobre a vida maravilhosa no Nirvana, onde laços de Amor reunirão pessoas e animais que são queridos uns dos outros.

    Perguntas e Respostas.

    Congratulamo-nos com suas perguntas sobre as células e DNA de seus corpos - como suas células afetam profundamente suas vidas, então esse interesse, realmente, é bem colocado. 

    Pergunta: Se “irradiarmos nossa Luz" fazendo coisas boas, nosso DNA será mudado... isso é verdade? 

    Resposta: Sim, isso é verdade, mas para irradiar Luz, as pessoas, primeiramente devem absorvê-la e, isso acontece “ao se fazer boas ações".

    Na medida em que os corpos de terceira densidade absorvem Luz, suas células á base de carbono, que possuem duas cadeias de DNA entrelaçadas, mudam gradualmente para a estrutura cristalina, onde a quantidade de fitas pode aumentar em número e, enquanto isso acontece, a acuidade mental das pessoas, a clareza espiritual e as habilidades manifestantes também irão aumentar.

    Pergunta: Ouvi dizer que podemos nos comunicar com nossas células. Se isso realmente é possível, como fazer isso? O que diríamos?

    Resposta: Não só é possível se comunicar com suas células como, constantemente, estão fazendo isso sem terem conhecimento. Cada uma das incontáveis de células num corpo humano, têm consciência e sabem, exatamente, como funcionar e responder a qualquer coisa que as estimule. Infelizmente, muitas vezes o estímulo são as baixas vibrações de medo, raiva, amargura, culpa, ciúme, desonestidade, ganância - é por isso que a doença física, mental e emocional são tão prevalentes em seu mundo.

    Igualmente, as células respondem de forma similar às altas vibrações de Amor, alegria, gratidão, paz, compaixão e generosidade e farão o mesmo com o que é comunicado conscientemente. Lembre-se de que as células reagem às vibrações emitidas por palavras e intenções, que têm suas próprias vibrações. Então o que dize deve ser genuíno, de seus corações, não sendo necessário falar em voz alta - podem transmitir suas mensagens pelo pensamento.

    Por exemplo, poderão agradecer suas células por mantê-los saudáveis ou pedir-lhes para manterem seus sangues fluindo suavemente, aumentarem seus níveis de energia ou ajudarem suas mentes, corpos e espíritos a permanecerem em equilíbrio. Aquele que é propenso a dores de cabeça ou a tensão nos olhos - qualquer desconforto - pergunte às células na área específica para mostrar de forma reconhecível o que você está fazendo que está impedindo que eles funcionem corretamente. E sempre é apropriado dizer-lhes que ama e honra a elas por fazerem seus aspectos físicos. No entanto, acrescentamos que falar com células não é um substituto para consultar um profissional de saúde sobre uma condição que se tornou crônica ou esteja piorando.

    Pergunta: As almas de civilizações evoluídas que se voluntariaram para virem aqui, possuem células e/ou DNAs  diferentes dos seres humanos da Terra? 

    Resposta: A grande maioria dessas almas tem a mesma estrutura celular e DNA de dupla hélice, como pessoas da Terra. Quando se voluntariaram, sabiam que teriam as limitações e deficiências inerentes aos corpos de terceira densidade. É, ao atenderem a orientação em nível de alma que elevam a consciência consciente e espiritual acima do nível da civilização do planeta e, quando suas vidas terminam e retornam para seus locais originais, irão manifestar corpos com seus DNAs originais. Estamos dizendo "eles" e "seus", porque essas pertencem as muitas almas que não sabem, bem como para vocês que sabem que que são voluntários.

    Todavia, um número comparativamente pequeno de almas que poderiam ser imaginadas como uma unidade das Forças Espirituais Especiais, têm missões que exigem capacidades muito além dos limites dos corpos 3D. Aqueles cuja forma nativa difere consideravelmente das suas, manifestam um corpo humanoide, antes da chegada. Aqueles que mais se assemelham a vocês, são vistos como tais e, em todos os casos, a luz na sua composição celular, mantém o DNA inalterado.

    Passam vários meses em "casas intermediárias" isoladas, enquanto se adaptam à atmosfera da Terra e refinam suas aparências e comportamentos para se encaixarem na população, nos países de suas missões são designadas. Alguns dos voluntários "regulares" criam documentação que inserem em registros apropriados para fundamentar o nascimento, cidadania, educação e qualificações dos membros da unidade em áreas como Inteligência Artificial, Astrofísica, Engenharia, Linguística, informática e ciências médicas.

    Embora esses extraterrestres ajam tanto quanto seus vizinhos e colegas de trabalho, esta seria o máximo de suas semelhanças, uma vez que podem desmaterializar e rematerializar objetos e se comunicam telepaticamente entre si, no planeta ou com colegas em seus locais de origem. Possuem memórias fotográficas e podem transferir imagens por pensamento para outras fontes.

    Quando há necessidade de manterem sigilo na realização de uma tarefa de em determinada missão ou para segurança pessoal, podem acelerar suas vibrações, de modo que a visão em 3D não possa detectar suas presenças ou se teletransportarem para um local seguro. Caso um de seus colegas estiver em perigo, eles podem cercá-lo com uma barreira de luz protetora. Queridos irmãos e irmãs, vocês tem a capacidade de fazer isso e mais – não fazem isso, porque suas missões não exigem o uso dessas habilidades ou talvez porque, ainda, não as tiveram desenvolvido.

    Pergunta: Eu adoraria que o Matthew abordasse o tema sobre a nova onda milimétrica 5G, que estará sendo lançada nos próximos anos por empresas de telefonia celular. Uma pesquisa que fiz, lançou alguma luz sobre o assunto e constatou que tudo isso não é bom para nossas células e DNA. 

    Resposta: Uma das razões pelas quais as almas de civilizações evoluídas estão ajudando a Terra resulta do fato do avanço espiritual e consciente dos povos tenha ficado muito atrás do avanço tecnológico. Por exemplo, a energia nuclear nas mãos de uma população de terceira densidade é pura loucura e o armamento nuclear é suicida - em numerosas ocasiões, membros da família universal impediram resultados catastróficos em ambas as áreas. Que grande dia será, quando as pessoas da Terra puderem agradecer as suas famílias de outros mundos, cuja ajuda em inúmeras maneiras foi inestimável!

    Voltando ao ponto, algumas dessas almas, conscientes de como as larguras de banda específicas de ondas eletromagnéticas afetam negativamente a estrutura celular dos corpos, estão trabalhando em indústrias onde possam promover mudanças para tornarem celulares, torres e outros produtos inofensivos que agora estão mantendo as fitas do DNA numa hélice dupla. No entanto, neste momento, os níveis vibratórios no planeta estão reduzindo os efeitos prejudiciais desses produtos sobre a população e indivíduos que estão absorvendo Luz, dotando-as de proteção adicional. Por favor, não permitam que relatórios de efeitos prejudiciais permitam que venham sentirem medo, uma vez que as baixas vibrações da energia do medo irão bloquear a proteção. Nunca subestimem o poder das vibrações para elevar ou prejudicar qualquer situação.

    Pergunta: Como os indivíduos controlados pelo MKUltra podem remover essa programação? E as pessoas que não sabem que foram programadas? A programação afeta o DNA? Por que nossos guias não podem nos livrar disso? 

    Resposta: Primeiramente, dizemos que o controle da mente não uma escolha de contrato de alma, uma vez que que esse procedimento interfere com o seu crescimento. Este aspecto insidioso da mentalidade profunda da terceira densidade, que usa métodos brutais para programar indivíduos cativos, chegou ao fim de seu tempo. As vibrações predominantes estão aliviando as mentes da programação que implantava um comando de "gatilhos" para que as pessoas viessem a realizar tarefas atribuídas - é por isso que alguns indivíduos podem falar sobre experiências as quais foram programados para esquecê-las.

    Sob o controle da mente eles não podem absorver a luz, todavia, uma vez livres, podem e suas células e DNA responderão de acordo. Todos os indivíduos que foram submetidos ao controle da mente, se escaparam ou não, antes de entrar no Nirvana, lá recebem cura personalizada. Suas psiques são curadas do processo de programação torturante para que não tenham que reexperimentar isso durante sua revisão da vida útil. Nem o processo, nem a experiência controlada pela mente são realizados na memória celular para afetar encarnações subsequentes - as escolhas da alma para seu próximo personagem, incluirão uma forte aversão para prejudicar qualquer vida humana ou animal.

    Muito antes que essa forma de controle mental fosse concebida, as massas foram programadas por dogmas religiosos e, séculos depois, por Illuminati nos governos e na mídia. As pessoas que estão absorvendo a Luz estão duvidando da veracidade das informações das "autoridades" e estão aprendendo a confiar em suas intuições sobre o que é verdadeiro e o que não é.  Esse aumento de consciência está mudando a estrutura celular para permitir um aumento nas cadeias de DNA.

    Os indivíduos que não percebem que estão presos em algum sistema de programação, uma vez na vida espiritual, podem escolher, “ver a luz" em outra encarnação. Os terroristas não têm razão para pensar que foram programados porque o fanatismo, a ignorância, a opressão e a ganância que geram o terrorismo são um fato da vida em seu mundo.

    Os emissários de Deus - guias espirituais, anjos, almas em civilizações evoluídas, família amada e amigos no Nirvana - estão continuamente a ajuda-los através da iluminação de toda a vida na Terra. Pela Lei universal, eles não têm permissão para "simplesmente retirá-los" e não há necessidade disso - Estão fazendo isso sozinhos, absorvendo a Luz.

    Pergunta: Não são apenas 17 agências de inteligência dos EUA alegando que a Rússia invadiu arquivos de computadores para influenciar as eleições presidenciais desse país. Agências em outros países que analisaram as pegadas também concluíram que elas apontam para a Rússia. Agora, sabe-se que a Rússia também pirateou arquivos das eleições primárias dos estados. Matthew ainda acha que esse país é inocente? 

    Resposta: Não é o que pensamos. É o que sabemos de membros da família universal que estão nos serviços de inteligência de todas as nações – Eles fazem parte das Forças Especiais das quais falamos anteriormente.

    É por isso que podemos afirmar com toda a certeza de que a pirataria foi feita por agentes dos EUA que queriam que a informação nos arquivos fosse conhecida antes da eleição presidencial e Illuminati no Comitê Nacional Democrático manipulassem votos nas eleições primárias para favorecer Hillary Clinton e não Bernie Sanders fosse o candidato do partido. Os membros dessa unidade das Forças Especiais sabem quais agentes dos serviços de inteligência são Illuminati e quais dos seus peritos em "pegada" fizeram com que elas apontassem para a Rússia.

    Por que a Rússia? Os Illuminati precisavam impedir a erosão de seu controle exercido na União Européia e nos Estados Unido e que isso exigia a continuidade da solidariedade entre essas duas entidades, de modo que os Illuminati, que ainda tivessem influência e operações secretas em ambos os lados do  Atlântico, pudessem recuperar sua eficácia. O que poderia garantir que esse relacionamento internacional permanecesse forte? Um inimigo comum. Durante anos, os Illuminati queriam estabelecer uma base de operações em Moscou. No entanto, o presidente Putin se recusou a cooperar - com um só golpe de uma espada de dois gumes e, por assim dizer, poderiam puni-lo e fortalecer seu poder na UE E os EUA.

    Seus agentes "black ops/operações escuras" aumentaram a tensão criando agitações na Criméia e na Ucrânia, acusando Putin que forçosamente assumiu essas regiões em sua tentativa de trazer todos os países da antiga União Soviética sob seu controle, acusando a Rússia de interferir no processo eleitoral dos Estados Unidos. Seus meios de comunicações mantiveram essas histórias no centro das atenções para convencer a UE e os EUA de que a Rússia representaria uma grave ameaça à democracia - mentiras repetidas muitas vezes se tornam "fatos".

    Os Illuminati nas forças militares e indústria bélica estão falando sobre a necessidade de fortalecer a capacidade de defesa – uma vez que lucram generosamente ao produzirem  a maquinaria da guerra. A população acredita que a Rússia seja o inimigo do mundo livre, de modo que  os Illuminati alcançariam seus objetivos. Todavia, a solidariedade entre a UE e os EUA que eles esperavam consolidar firmemente está rachando e eles não conseguirão transformar sua "guerra fria" artificial numa Terceira Guerra Mundial.

    Entendemos por que as perguntas e comentários sobre o Presidente Trump, dos Estados Unidos, superam em número, todos os outros tópicos do interesse do leitor. Nosso Amor por esta alma é incondicional, assim como para todos os outros em nossa família universal e é sem julgamento que dizemos que ele não tem qualificações para exercer  com sabedoria as extensas responsabilidades de seu cargo de presidente. O desânimo sobre suas "decisões políticas, conselheiros, comunicação e comportamento não presidencial" é generalizado, porque as ações deste governo têm repercussões em todo o mundo.

    A seguinte parte da nossa mensagem há alguns meses atrás repete porque, agora, é tão válida como foi, até então:

    O resultado das eleições condenou o plano dos Illuminati de colocar suas garras na Casa Branca, depois de oito anos luta contra um presidente que se esforçou em lutar contra ela, na medida do possível.

    As vibrações planetárias irão fortalecer e avançar apenas os esforços que melhor servirem a Terra e todas as suas formas de vida, Qualquer coisa em contrário não será  duradoura.

    Os direitos e os progressos alcançados na justiça social não podem ser desmantelados. Não é o destino dos povos da Terra andar para trás e, sim, sempre avançar para frente, para a paz, respeito mútuo, cooperação e vida em harmonia com a Natureza.

    Um mundo onde a vida é assim e o planeta com a saúde restaurada e sua beleza intocada - Um mundo que estão ajudando a criar no tempo linear – que já existe vibrante no Continuum. [9 de dezembro de 2016].

    Amados Trabalhadores da Luz, o seu otimismo sobre o futuro da Terra irá ajudar a dissipar as baixas vibrações de consternação, que estão atrasando o avanço da sociedade, em direção à plenitude da Era de Ouro. Na medida em que dirigem suas energias em pensamentos, sentimentos e ações positivas, que não só preservaram o progresso até agora, mas que adicionam impulso para que ele possa avançar, enviem luz em abundância para toda a Terra. Visualizando o planeta " com sua saúde restaurada e  sua beleza imaculada" e que todos os seus  povos  vivam em "paz, respeito mútuo, cooperação e vida em harmonia com a Natureza", irá acelerar a chegada desse dia no tempo linear, quando esse mundo será plenamente manifestado.

    Em todo este Universo Seres de Luz honram seus serviços à Terra e os apoiam com o poder incomparável do Amor Incondicional.


    AMOR e PAZ.

    Elżbieta Fornalczyk, przewodnicząca "Sierpień '80" w Tesco, twierdzi, że kobiety w Tesco są wyzyskiwane. Podkreślała, że trudna sytuacja kobiet dotyczy też kobiet z Biedronki i Carrefoura - czytamy w Gazecie Wyborczej.
              Homozygous Tobiano Homozygous Black Twh Stallion With Outstanding Pedigre   
     General Hector, or Hector as we call him, is a Triple Registered Homozygous Tobiano and Homozygous Black Breeding Stallion. Hector is a 10 year old stallion, DNA tested by the University of Kentucky to be homozygous for the tobiano gene, and by Animal Genetics in Florida to be homozygous black. He is EE aa TT. He can ONLY produce black and whites or bay and whites from non-dilute mares! When bred to mares carrying dilute genes he can and has produced buckskin tobianos, classic champagne tobianos, amber champagne tobianos or smoky black tobianos. No other colors are possible! The color genetics this horse offers are merely icing on the cake though. Hector is an incredibly well-bred stallion. We feel he is the best bred homozygous stallion standing today. He is sired by the many times World and World Grand Champion and Horse of the Year, Colors in General, who is a son of the late, great, Gen.'s Major General. More impressively, Hector is the only stallion out of his dam, the great Generators Winning Colors. Winning Colors, a direct daughter of Prides Generator, was the first spotted horse to ever win a World Championship at the TWH Celebration, and is also a full sister to the popular breeding stallion, WC Generator's Color Guard. Hector's full sister was the 2007 NSSHA Open Shod 2 Year Old. Hector stands a measured 16.1 hands high. He has good bone and substance and is built to last, but has a keen head/ear and lovely neck - all traits that he is consistently passing to his offspring. He is naturally gaited and long striding, with extremely correct movement in his back end and natural head shake and stride. He is broke to ride but he has primarily been used for breeding. Hector consistently passes his natural gait and people-loving temperament on to his foals, making them equally suitable for trail riding as the show ring. Hector is extremely fertile. His semen is excellent and will ship. His Stud fee is 500 with a LFG. To book mares to Hector, please contact Alex Foreman (Owner) @ 931-993-8006 or David Williams @ Rising Star Ranch @ 931-639-1081. All expenses of shipping are the responsibility of the Mare Owner.

    P.P. Sarasanghachalak Mohanji's Speech at Golden Jubilee celebration of  Rashtradeep

    Yato dharma Statojaya


    Cuttack,10th August- "The magnanimity of the deed is not important, the intention (Bhavna) behind the deed is important. Therefore the circulation figure of the Rashtradeep is not very much important for us. As the aim and objective of the weekly is to serve the people, connect them with their root and Culture,( i.e. Hindutwa.) and to help them to eradiacate the suffering, pain through information and views, it will go on it's path with the very aim and objective in the years to come. " P.P. Sarasanghachalak of RSS Mananiya MohanRao Bhagbatji said this while addressing the valedictory of Golden Jubilee celebration of Odia Weekly Rashtradeep. The grand function was held today evening at Saheed Bhavan, Cuttack.

                Mohanji started his speech with narrating the story of milk woman Hirabai who jumped from the Raygad Fort in the darkness of the night only to feed her child. He said deed may be big or small, but the intention behind doing this is much important.

                 Further he referred his previous speaker, the chief guest of the occasion educationist Dr. Achuta Samanta, Ex vice-chancellor of KIIT University, Who said "since independence, 3 democratic milestones of Bharat had shaken the whole world. These are 1947, 1977 and 2014." Referring this Mohanji said, "all these happened due to people wanted for these. It is being said that, all this happened due to some party, other organization or due to some individual. But they were there, well much before. But the change (parivartan) did not occur. Only when people wanted the change, then only it could happen."

                Further he said, if we goes on doing the right things continuously with a noble aim, it will definitely bring change . He added, yes, it is difficult for good to counter evil, but ultimately the good prevails, Truth and Dharma wins.


                Quoting Swami Vivekananda he said, "Swamijee said, there are numerous individuals who have worked for the society much vigorously than even Rama, Krishna and Jesus. But they didn't want any recognition and served the society silently. Likewise we don't work because of any recognition, silent work is our style."


                Mohanji said, "all live here in Hindusthan is Hindu. Our worshiping style may be different, even some may not worship at all, we may talk in different languages, may stay at various part of the land, we may eat different food, but we are One, one Nation  We are Hindu. Those who stays in England are English, all those are in Germany areGerman, all those who are  in USA are Americans, Likewise All here in HINDUSTHAN are HINDUs, so simple to understand. Hinduism is our Nationality. It's a way of life. Unnecessarily some are confusing people." Mohanji said even today's research revealed since 40,000 years or even much before that on the Indo-Iranian plate there living one species. DNA mapping confirms this.


     He said, "Whole world is covered with Darkness of Adharma, Asat (falsehood), and Agyana (absence of proper knowledge). Adharma is attacking the Dharma. It happens. For this we must not be disheartened. The only way for survival of Bharat is Dharma. As long as we act according to Dharma, there is no power in the universe who can destroy Bharat. And if we forget to act according to our Dharma, then nothing in this universe can save us. As the existence of the whole world is dependant upon the existence of Bharat, the Almighty wants Bharat to exist, Grow and Lighten the whole world, Save the whole World." "

                He further added Prior to 3000 years or since the time immemorial, Bharat was the guide to the whole world in all fields. We helped other to grow, We never hurt any country. Therefore others love us, they know our history, but we have forgotten. They are watching us with a great hope. But we are sleeping. We have forgotten our own glorious history, forgotten our 'SWADHARMA'. We must have proper knowledge about SWA and DHARMA.  Hinduism is SWA of Hindu. When somebody tries to rise the SWA of Hindu, some are crying communal, communal. Hinduism or Hindutwa is our Nationality. It is neither any worshiping style, nor any creed, place nor sect. It is an Identity and Nationality. With our Body-mind-wit (intellect), we must try to move forward towards Atman. This is our Dharma, this is Hindutwa."

     Mohanji concluded, "Since 50 years Rashtradeep has struggled much, but the journey never stopped and will never do so. As the situation of our motherland is not changed satisfactorily. People are still suffering. They are not in good state of health, mind, and soul. So Rashtradeep will glow, burn itself to enlighten the society. We will change the Dil (heart), Dasha (situation) but will never change the Disha( Direction).

              KERAJAAN IBLIS : sebuah kritik ke dalam   

    Kerajaan iblis adalah sebuah kerajaan, yang digambarkan dalam peribahasa jawa sebagai: ''gemah ripah loh jinawi, opo kang sarwo tinandur dadi'' (subur tanahnya, sehingga apa saja yang ditanam pasti berbuah), dan setiap iblis berpegang pada prinsip ''ingarso sung tulodho, ing madyo mangun karso, tut wuri handayani'' (semua elemen masyarakat menjalankan fungsinya, dari atasan sampai bawahan), karena itu kerajaanya ''toto titi tentrem kerto raharjo'' (kecukupan dalam segala bidang), padahal, seperti yang kita ketahui bersama, para iblis adalah pribadi pribadi yang tidak mengenal tuhan ataupun ajaran moral agama apapun. Tetapi, sejak masih anak anak, para iblis sudah didoktrin dengan pemahaman, bahwa: jika kamu mencuri, maka hartamu juga akan dicuri, jika kamu memukul, kamupun akan dipukul, jika mamu mencopet, kamupun akan dicopet, jika kamu membunuh, kamupun akan dibunuh, jika kamu mengganggu istri iblis lain, maka istrimupun akan diganggu, sampai pada: jika kamu muter musik kenceng kenceng yang membuat tetanggamu tidak bisa tidur, maka tidur kamu juga akan diganggu dengan suara musik yang mungkin lebih kenceng. Dengan pemahaman seperti demikian ini, yang sudah didoktrinkan semenjak para iblis itu masih balita, maka pemahaman ini sudah tertanam, larut dalam aliran darah, dan menyatu dalam dna mereka. Dan tiba tiba kerajaan iblis menjelma menjadi sebuah kerajaan yang paling aman di alam semesta ini. Ini bisa dibuktikan dengan tidak adanya kejahatan apapun di kerajaan iblis. Tidak ada pembunuhan, tidak ada perampokan, pencurian, tidak ada copet, garong, pemalsuan uang, oli atau merk dagang apapun, tidak ada vcd bajakan, apalagi korupsi. Ini adalah sebuah kerajaan yang aman sempurna. Bahkan kerajaan iblis tidak mempunyai polisi, hakim, jaksa, pengacara, tentara, bahkan mereka tidak punya hansip atau tukang ronda. Tidak punya gedung pengadilan, kuhp, atau penjara. Mereka tidak butuh itu semua. Hanya dengan akal sehat yang sederhana, mereka berhasil membentuk sebuah sistem masyarakat yang ternyata terbukti lebih bermoral daripada kita, manusia. saya tidak tahu menahu soal iblis sebenarnya, tapi cuma meminjam namanya untuk 'menyentil' hancurnya moral dinegara tercinta ini

    A $10,000 debt is about to cost Chad Diamond more than just his dignity. Chad and his girlfriend, Jenna Ivory, are caught in a quagmire: does she give up the white pussy so that Rico Strong doesn't end Chad Diamond over a debt? It seems as if love is put to the test as Jenna Ivory's reluctance to suck and fuck a dealer eventually diminishes. Rico's big black cock slides its way down Jenna's throat as Chad a.k.a "super cuckold" watches proof of failure as a boyfriend (and a man). Chad's little white dick only gets attention from his own hands as his girlfriend feels the power of black dick. The filthy blonde gets stretched wider than hole that's now in Chad's soul......with each passing minute. The debt gets settled only after Rico's DNA finds its way inside her welcoming mouth.

              Geeks Vs Loneliness: the loss of a sibling   
    Jo de-Lancey
    Jun 30, 2017

    Jo tells us about her brother, and the pain of losing him...

    If it's all the same, we're going to skip our usual intro to Geeks Vs Loneliness this week. Instead, we're handing straight over to the brilliant Jodie. We're proud to be able to run her words on our site. And we're sending her a massive hug.

    A perfectly innocent and heart-warming cartoon on the internet triggered me today. It depicted a young girl reminiscing about playing video games with her older brother, and how they eventually got their old gaming systems out of storage to play again. By the time I'd swiped through all the panels, my phone screen had become blurry with my tears. I had to put it down and take a few moments to breathe. I swiped through it a second time and decided to challenge myself into writing something about how I feel, and openly share some of the nonsense my brother and I used to get up to, while gaming. It's taken almost the whole day to pick up my laptop and get hammering away on the keys, so here we go.

    Five years ago, I lost my older brother in a road traffic accident, the single most painful experience of my life, so far. I went through months of torture, clearing out his room, funeral arrangements, talking to the newspaper, it was one thing after another, an endless stream of agony and metaphorical punches. I barely had time to think, and for the most part, hid my pain, doing all the classics like making jokes and crying on my own, worried people might think I should just 'pull myself together and get on with life.'

    Well the truth is I haven't, and probably never will pull myself together, so sorry Great British public and your general ideals. I deal with it, one day at a time. Five years later, I'm still dealing with it, and clearly certain things trigger me, like the above mentioned cartoon.

    My brother was always someone I could rely on to game with. Being a girl, growing up in the 90s, games weren't exactly the 'cool' thing for me to be doing. I distinctly remember the 'popular' kids at school mocking me by telling me that I fancied Sonic, and I was in love with Sonic. Idiots, if they knew anything about me they'd have known Super Sonic and Knuckles the Echidna were my jam, but that's another tale altogether.

    Anyway, with my brother, I could just get on with it and be myself. We often played Sonic 2 vs mode, and generally he'd let me be Sonic (I wasn't a fan of Tails.) We were pretty evenly matched, yet, he always had a secret weapon to deploy when we raced through the Special Stage. If he started doing slightly better than me, to put me off and cement his victory, he'd start singing the special stage music. It was so annoying and totally brought out the Raphael in me! Whenever this tactic was used, his victory was assured and as the results screen popped, he could chant "Win! Win! Win! Loooosseeeee!" As I ground my teeth into furious dust.

    When we graduated from the Megadrive to the Playstation, he used a similar tactic while playing Tekken. His character of choice was Paul Phoenix, and to put me off, he would mutter the mantra, 'Paul will never be defeated. Paul will never be defeated. Paul will never be defeated,' over and over again. As a result, I'd get angry and more often than not, lose! I never seemed to learn.

    We used to play what we called a 'Battle Royale Super Deluxe,' on Tekken, a mode we created. This could only happen once all the characters were unlocked. What we'd do is fight each other as the same character, until we'd gone through them all, to discover which of us was the true Tekken master. The advantage to this sort of battle meant I'd only hear the Paul Phoenix mantra once!

    We also played through the Tomb Raider and Resident Evil games together, these games bring back some of my fondest memories, sitting in the dark, being scared and eating all the chocolate in the room to block out the nightmare fuel I was playing with. Aside from games, my brother also taught me the importance of how something could be so bad, it's actually good. We spent a summer watching episodes of the James Bond Jr cartoon, just because it was so laughably bad. As a result of this, my adult self developed a penchant for films that are so bad, they go beyond bad and back to good again. I see this as a gift passed down, and something I'll forever be grateful for.

    Eventually, we both grew older and moved out of home, he went south and I went north. I remember visiting him and absolutely destroying him on Soul Calibur, I'm proud to say I only lost once all night, no Paul Phoenix to hide behind in that game, bro! With the advent of online gaming, and with Resident Evil Five being out for some time I started talking him into getting a 360, selling it with the fact that we could play Resy together again! He told me he'd play on mine in the summer, then decide what to do. Unfortunately he didn't get round to playing on my console, as he was killed a few weeks after that conversation.

    To this day, I still struggle with my feelings and emotions. I can sometimes fondly reminisce about the Megadrive and Playstation days, with my brother at my side, guiding and giving me severe beats through the world of gaming. During these moments I can sit back, smile and be appreciative for the times we had together, knowing how special and unique our relationship was. Whether we were solving puzzles in Resy or beating the hell out of each other in fury of Tekken fists. Though sometimes the thoughts take a dark turn, and I can get stuck in the loop of how it isn't fair that he's gone, and how utterly heartbreaking it is, that I cannot make anymore memories with him. It becomes frustrating, unbelievably painful and difficult to deal with. I'm still searching for a way to fully cope, when these black clouds of pain descend upon me.

    For now I'm taking it a day at a time, a therapy session a week, and maybe I'll treat myself to Tekken 7.

    For writing this article, we're going to be sending Jodie a copy of Tekken 7. Thanks, as always, for reading.

              Začetek nedelje jasen, popoldne oblaki   
    Deževni pas iznad Francije in Nemčije se bo v nedeljo premaknil proti jugu vse do Alp. Nevihte in plohe bodo popoldne tudi na Balkanu, predvsem v Bosni in Hercegovini in Makedoniji. Zahodni del celine bo jutri ostal suh. V noči na nedeljo se bo ponekod na Primorskem in ob morju pojavila kakšna nevihta. V notranjosti države pa bo noč jasna in mirna. V večjem delu države se boste zbudili v jasno in sončno nedeljsko jutro.  Najtopleje bo ob morju, 17 st C. 13 st C bo zjutraj na Štajerskem in Koroškem, 12 v Alpskih dolinah, drugod po državi pa bo živo srebro zjutraj kazalo okoli 15 st C. Dopoldne bo še jasno. Popoldne pa bodo s severa oblaki postopoma prekrili vso Slovenijo. V popoldanskih urah se bodo pojavljale krajevne plohe, na Primorskem lahko tudi zagrmi. Zapihal bo veter severnih smeri. Popoldne ne bo prevroče. V večjem delu Slovenije bo okoli 26 st C, največ bo ob morju do 28 st C, najmanj pa na Štajerskem, Koroškem ter v Alpskih dolinah, do 23 stopinj. V gorah bo sprva delno jasno, nato se bo oblačnost povečala, vrhovi bodo občasno v oblakih. Popoldne bodo nastale posamezne plohe. Pihal bo večinoma šibak severni do severovzhodni veter. Temperatura na 1500 m bo sredi dneva okoli 12, na 2500 m pa okoli 4 st C. Kot vse kaže pa bo prihodnji teden vremensko bolj stabilen. Plohe in nevihte bodo od ponedeljka pa vsaj do četrtka redkost. Temperature bodo višje. V ponedeljek bo večinoma sončno s povečano oblačnostjo v popoldanskih urah. Najvišje dnevne temperature bodo okoli 26 st C. Tudi torek bo sončen in še za kakšno stopinjo bo topleje. Temperature zjutraj bodo okoli 15, čez dan 28. V sredo se bo sončno vreme nadaljevalo, temperature bodo spet dosegle 30 st C. Tudi v nadaljevanju tedna bo še večinoma sončno, možnost za nastanek neviht bo nekoliko večja.

    how terrifying, to be aging and girl. at 18 i was told by men that i was “the perfect age,” and i still thought it was a compliment. is it because at 20 i figured out how sharp those words were. i felt old at 21, felt like if grey hairs came and my spine cracked i was done for. how scary. i am reminded constantly by “realistic” ideas in fantasy novels that i should have five kids.

    my life feels short. like it is squeezed into my twenties. like at 30 i become ghost, just another mother or hard worker or both, just another background character. like if i am not settled and making a difference by 27 i should just give up already. is this something men feel? like a clock is painted on their back, one hand warning: your beauty is something you are valued for and it is something you cannot get back.

    and why was i only beautiful, i wonder, at 18 on a riverbank. i’m told often my childish face is a blessing. that i shouldn’t want to look older. one told me i was a trap falling: “you look young but you’re not” he said to me, “it kind of led me on”. am i not young? 

    maybe i am wrong. maybe it’s just how we all feel, getting old, like time is slipping from us. maybe men do worry that they will be alone forever if they don’t settle by thirty, maybe it’s even because they think they’ll turn ugly. maybe we all squish our lives into that incredibly young decade. what do i know. i’m still learning.

    I’m almost 25 and I’ve been feeling this a lot lately.

    As a 48 year old lesbian, I offer my perspective on aging, and you all can take it or leave it.

    Our understanding of our own aging is very much conditioned by the priorities of straight men, who in the aggregate understand beauty and femininity, indeed women in general, in literally superficial terms. Most of the ads you see for anti-aging products, for instance, focus on its *visible* symptoms: graying hair, wrinkling skin or discolored skin, sagging breasts, changes in body shape, etc. These are the symptoms of female aging that men perceive, and they are the ones that the cosmetics and the larger anti-aging industry therefore target. (Men do have their own anxieties about visibly aging, mostly related to hair loss and body shape; but they are not, for instance, generally terrified by the appearance of wrinkles, unless they work in the entertainment industry.)

    But aging is not just something that happens to everyone else’s perception of you; it is something that happens in your own body, at levels deeper than anyone else (especially anyone male) is ever likely to perceive. From my POV the really important thing about aging is how you feel. Your body is where you live; it is for you. Aging is inevitable, but it can to some extent be intentional, in that you can (to some extent; all this is limited by the amount of time and money available to you and the healthfulness of the environments you have lived in and how you did in the DNA lottery) choose to do things that will help preserve the things about your body that make YOU happy to be living there–things like flexibility, strength, and the smooth functioning of your major organs. Generally, if you’re healthy, you don’t think about any of this stuff at 18 or 25; but when you are 40, you will start to take more of an interest as you come to understand how important all of this is to your own ability to enjoy life.

    So that sucks, as does menopause, which is the unacknowledged referent of a lot of cultural anxieties about female aging. But the point I want to make is: one of the worst things that the phenomenon described so evocatively by the OP does to girls and young women is to make them so anxious about their own bodies that they are unable to enjoy and appreciate their youth while they have it. And that is theft. It really is. I miss youth, but even more do I regret the fact that when I was young I was so fucked up by cultural obsessions about female beauty that I was unable to fully enjoy the body that I had then. I did not appreciate its many excellent qualities, and it was a long time before I allowed myself to accept and act on its desires. At a time when I was beautiful, I thought I was fat and ugly, and that because no man would ever find me attractive, I was doomed to loneliness and isolation. After I met Mrs. Plaidder, her conviction of my beauty eventually passed into me. As a result, I enjoyed my life in general a lot more in my 30s than I did in my teens. I’ve enjoyed my 40s more too, apart from the cancer and the current catastrophe. Age does actually bring experience and knowledge and, to those able to profit from it, wisdom. You do gain, even as you lose.

    Catullus, yelling in Latin verse at his lover Lesbia, asks her venomously, “cui videberis bella?” By whom will you be seen to be beautiful? It’s a question that still poisons our sense of self and our understanding of our own possibilities. By myself, asshole, she should have replied; and so may we all, at any age. 

    Long post, but - my three cents. At 67 I don’t feel old and/or ugly. In fact, I really enjoy myself. I’m happy with how I look - because I got over the brainwashed way we see ourselves. As plaidadder said: “even more do I regret the fact that when I was young I was so fucked up by cultural obsessions about female beauty that I was unable to fully enjoy the body that I had then.BTW, plaidadder - you are STILL beautiful, trust me.  The American cult of youth and they way of evaluating women’s beauty as inevitably liked to age is fucking TOXIC. I now live in South America; was complemented ( in a non-creepy way) by two guys less than half my age last week, grey hair & all. Love it here. 

    You will never feel as old as you do in your late 20s to late 30s. Seriously. Western culture makes the passing of youth into a tragic death and that’s – so fucking sad. Once it has passed and you can no longer reasonably think of yourself as young, no matter how desperately you try to hang on to it – you find yourself in a whole other country, you realize that you’ve lived on one side of a mountain all your life and told there’s nothing beyond it only to discover that there is, in fact, an entire world on the other side. Don’t believe the lie. 

    I’m just going to reblog all these responses because they’re so solid and right on.

    #don’t believe the lie#on the other side of that crushing weight is freedom#the older i get the lighter my spirit becomes#hang in there ladies#the best is yet to come

              Blog Post: MightyMagikarp's Top 100 Video Game Characters (#80-71)   

    Well, I missed multiple deadlines.  I doubt anyone's surprised.  A combination of work, cleaning up my video game backlog, and some new video game characters that I really like questioning the accuracy of my current list have lead to a delay in this installment of my favorite video game characters list, but as is my motto with college papers, "better late than never!"  Some people have been waiting long enough to see this entry (at least, I hope so), so let's get started right away!

    80) Damon Gant

    Appeared In:  Phoenix Wright:  Ace Attorney

    "There are only three people I look out for:  Me, Myself, and I."

    One of the reasons Ace Attorney is still a series I hold in such high regard is due to the outstanding villains it's crafted throughout the years.  From somewhat sympathetic killers with intriguing motives to one dimensional cold hearted killers, there are a myriad of wicked people to take down and prove guilty in tense battles of wits throughout the franchise, and it's a sensation that hasn't grown old even six games later.  However, I personally believe the best of these villains can be found in the very first Ace Attorney game, and his name is Damon Gant.

    Damon Gant leaves an unforgettable first impression.  He shows up on the witness stand during the first day of a trial and simply stares into the player's soul for almost a minute.  It's an uncomfortably long period of time, and it led to many players, myself included, panicking that their DS had frozen.  However, after realizing he had zoned out, Gant immediately explodes into a cheery persona, expressing great joy at being able to testify and immediately coming up with endearing nicknames for the defense, prosecution, and judge.  It turns out that Gant is the Chief of Police, and all too happy to help the sparring lawyers find the truth of who killed one of his fellow detectives.  At this point in the case, Gant is a riotously fun character, spontaneously erupting into spirited applause when the player finds mistakes in his testimony and all around being very encouraging - a true rarity for Ace Attorney witnesses, who would probably murder Phoenix if looks could kill.

    However, it's eventually revealed that the current case being investigated is tied to another murder several years ago, and when asked about it, the previously cheery Gant immediately becomes curt and stone faced, refusing to supply the player with any helpful information.  It comes to light that Gant himself was responsible for both the murders in the past and present, and it falls upon the player to prove this in court.  Realizing that Phoenix Wright knows his secret, Gant is far less helpful the following day in trial.  While he retains his cheery sprites and demeanor, underneath them you can detect real malice.  His nicknames, once playful, now feel mocking.  His clapping, once a sign of encouragement, now feels sarcastic.  And he switches between a silly smile and an evil smirk at the turn of a hat.

    Gant puts up one hell of a fight in this trial, especially since this is early in the series chronology and both Phoenix and the player are still relatively inexperienced in Ace Attorney trials.  As the Chief of Police, he abuses the law to avoid testifying outright and can even imprison Phoenix for slander, so just dragging him on the stand and avoiding his wrath is difficult enough.  What follows is a long, grueling, and tense battle of wits, and the only way to defeat Gant is to skillfully use the own laws he was sworn to protect against him.  And when the player is finally able to catch him, after having one of the most hilarious breakdowns in the whole series, he actually sincerely apologizes for his actions and laments that he'll no longer see his friend, the judge once more.  He displays a surprising amount of remorse for his crimes, a rarity in the Ace Attorney series, and this almost gave me an iota of sympathy for the ruthless man.

    There have been plenty of fantastic witnesses and villains in the Ace Attorney series, but nothing can top the thrill of defeating Damon Gant at his own game.  Using evidence law against him was an unforgettable moment, and the way in which the game twisted his once cheerful demeanor into something far more sinister in the second trial was unforgettable, and showed multiple sides of a very interesting character.  The Ace Attorney series still going strong, but while I look forward to where it takes us next, it has quite a challenge ahead of it if it wants to top Damon Gant with one of its new villains.

    79) Javier Garcia

    Appeared In:  Telltale's The Walking Dead Season Three:  A New Frontier

    "I love you, brother."

    I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of Season Two of Telltale's The Walking Dead, despite Season One being one of my all time favorite games.  While I enjoyed getting to see the world from Clementine's perspective and how much more dangerous the apocalypse was through the eyes of a 12 year old, the season was devoid of interesting characters.  Aside from Kenny, Clementine didn't really share any interesting relationships with the survivors she found herself caught up with.  On the contrary, I very much enjoyed Season Three, and that is in large part thanks to its compelling new protagonist.

    Javier Garcia is the star of season three, a disgraced baseball player with an estranged relationship to his family.  Javier and his brother David have a muddy relationship at best - they both clearly love one another, but their contrasting personalities mean they both have a hard time showing it.  In the wake of their father being diagnosed with cancer, Javier finds staying with his somewhat abusive brother and increasingly sick father impossible and abandons them in their time of need.  Though he tries to be there in time for his father's final passing, he doesn't make it, only further angering his brother.  However, this conflict is cut short prematurely by what else but the zombie apocalypse!

    After a series of events, Javier and David are separated, and Javier ends up travelling the ravaged countryside with David's wife, Kate, and David's children from a prior marriage, Gabe and Mariana.  This strange blended family shares a really unique dynamic over the course of the season that does a great job of telling a compelling character driven story in comparison to Season Two.  Presuming David to be dead, jokesters Javier and Kate could end up eloping depending on the player's choices, which makes David's inevitable return much more complicated.  Though he is only his uncle, Gabe ultimately ends up viewing Javier as his true father, displaying a degree of compassion and respect rough army man David never could for his son.  And of course, Javier and David themselves share a compelling dynamic.  The dialogue is extremely well written, and the game does a great job of depicting two brothers that almost feel like they aren't meant to get along in spite of the fact that they do care for one another deep down.  It's a very realistic and compelling relationship.  In particular, there is one scene at the end of the season where David begins to brutally fight Javier in a fit of rage over Kate having feelings for him instead.  The player as Javier can choose not to fight back and instead insist they love David, their brother.  And what follows was one of the most heartbreaking and raw scenes I've seen in a video game, as Javier simply can't quell his brother's rage in spite of his brotherly love.

    Choosing which familial ties to nurture most as Javier in the heat of the apocalypse made for a really compelling story, and it also helps that in comparison to Lee and Clementine, Javier has a multitude of responses that allow you to role play multiple takes on the same character.  Will you be a loyal and compassionate brother to David?  A charming and optimistic romantic with Kate?  A strong father figure for Gabe?  Or just a selfish jerk?

    I feel that The Walking Dead fanbase is a bit too hard on Season Three; just because Javier isn't fan favorite character Clementine doesn't mean he's poorly written by any means.  On the contrary, I found the bonds he shared with his brother, sister-in-law and and nephew to be really compelling, and deciding how to develop each of these bonds as a very malleable and likable protagonist was some of the most fun I've had in a Telltale game.  It's difficult to say where the next season of Telltale's franchise will take us next, but I hope that it'll provide characters with relationships as interesting as the ones Javier had with his family in a New Frontier.

    78) Godot

    Appeared In:  Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney:  Trials and Tribulations

    "No matter the man, we all wear masks.  Either on our face, or over our hearts."

    To continue my previous gushing about Ace Attorney characterization, on top of providing players with a large number of memorable killers to take down in court, the series has also consistently created interesting prosecutors to face off with.  Unlike the villains, players would verse these attorneys for most of the game, as they skillfully counter your defense and twist your own claims against you in a passionate effort to find your client convicted.  Because they are main characters, the prosecutors also get a wealth of characterization and growth throughout the game they appear in, and none are perhaps more interesting than Trials and Tribulations' rival attorney Godot.

    For much of the game, Godot is a man of mystery.  He has a huge bone to pick with protagonist Phoenix Wright; however, Wright has never seen the man before in his life.  Godot is a prosecutor who has never lost a case, and chose the profession solely to take down Phoenix in court one day.  The rationale behind Godot's hatred for Phoenix isn't revealed until much later in the game, and it's one of the most complex motives of any Ace Attorney character.

    Before he took up the mantle of Godot, Diego Armando was a mentor and lover to Mia Fey (another excellent character I talked about in the last character list installment).  After failing to catch a ruthless killer named Dahlia Hawthorne, the two attorneys made a pact to track her down and find her guilty of the next murder that she would inevitably commit.  Ultimately, Mia was successful in doing so... but not before Dahlia managed to poison Armando's coffee and plunge him into a coma that would last several years.

    When he finally woke up, Armando was eager to reunite with his lover and celebrate their victory over Hawthorne.  Except... Mia wasn't there to greet him.  And she never would be.  She was murdered while Armando was in a coma.  Armando sunk into despair and blamed himself - if he hadn't fallen for Hawthorne's trick, he'd have never fallen into a coma and would've been there to protect Mia.  As misplaced as this self blame is, Armando buries it quickly, instead deciding to blame Phoenix for Mia's death, as Wright was her student at the time and in Armando's mind, he should've been there to protect her.  This is what encourages Godot to become a prosecutor - to defeat and embarrass Phoenix in court as revenge.

    While this sounds serious and on the cusp of edginess, the reason Godot occupies a spot on this list because in spite of his depressing backstory, he's actually a hilarious character.

    Godot claims he never lost a case... but that's only because he just became a prosecutor and had never taken a case before the events of Trials and Tribulations.  He claims to have a seething hatred for Phoenix Wright... but he doesn't even know his proper name, humorously addressing him as "Trite" throughout the game's trials.  But more than anything, Godot is remembered for his crippling coffee addiction.  He drinks no less than 17 cups in every trial, randomly engages in monologues about the "allure" of black coffee, throws cups of it at Phoenix when angered, etc.  His coffee "shtick" could have easily felt like a gimmick, but it's more often than not hilarious.  Godot comparing his soul to a cup of black coffee is meaningful, but the game presents it in a way that feels more silly than anything, and the ability to walk a fine line between humor and drama (much like the series as a whole) is what makes Godot such a memorable character.

    Godot also has one of the best send offs of any prosecutor in the series.  In the game's final case, he catches wind of a plot to kill Mia Fey's younger sister, Maya.  Rather than alert the authorities or seek help from Phoenix, who was good friends with Maya, Godot instead devises an elaborate plan to assassinate Maya's assailant and pin the blame on someone else.  Why?  Because he wanted to be the hero of his own story.  The crippling sense of being responsible for Mia's death was eating away at him, and he felt that by protecting Maya, even through as terrible a means as murder, he could somehow find redemption.

    When Phoenix unravels the truth of the murder and finds Godot guilty, he apologizes for blaming Phoenix for Mia's death, and the two share one final cup of coffee together, before he is inevitably arrested and possibly executed.

    Godot is Ace Attorney writing at its finest.  He's an interesting character with a compelling and depressing backstory, but he's also a constant source of humor, and the ability of the writers to constantly go back and forth from getting players to sympathize with him as a character and laughing at his strange mannerisms gives him an interesting niche among all the video game characters on this list as a whole.

    77) Klavier Gavin

    Appeared In:  Apollo Justice:  Ace Attorney

    "Achtung baby!  It's no holds barred!  Let's rock!"

    If Godot earned a spot on this list for being a deeply written and intriguing prosecutor to verse in court, than Klavier made his way here for almost the exact opposite reason.  In stark contrast to Godot in Trials and Tribulations, the following main series Ace Attorney game had a more simplistic and entertaining foe to fight in court, though that made him no less interesting and memorable.

    Klavier Gavin is Apollo Justice's prosecutor rival, though in a surprising and refreshing deviation from the norm, there is little bad blood between the two, even when they initially meet.  While Gavin's nicknames that poke fun at Apollo (most notably "Herr Forehead") and creative insults when Apollo makes a poor argument ("Welcome back to reality!  We've been waiting for you!) get under the latter's skin, the dynamic these two have in court is more teasing than malicious, as both are determined to seek the truth, albeit through different means.  While many Ace Attorney prosecutors are out there to find the defendant guilty by any means necessary and to win, Klavier simply wants to find the truth, to ensure justice is maintained by the true culprit getting punished, even if they're not the defendant.  Surprisingly, Klavier is even willing to work with the defense to make that happen.

    A common trope in the Ace Attorney series is that the leading prosecutor of each game usually has a connection to one of the main characters and some kind of tragic past to uncover.  On a superficial level, Gavin appears to have both, but this trope is subverted in a very refreshing way.  Shortly after the events of Trials and Tribulations, Phoenix is disbarred for using falsified evidence in court.  This is meant to be a shocking revelation as the player, assuming the new role of Apollo, is shocked that the noble attorney we've come to know and love would stoop to such a level.  It turns out that Gavin was the prosecutor for the case where Phoenix used the forged evidence, and being young and full of vigor at the time, gladly cut Phoenix down for breaking the law and ensured that his badge was lost.

    However, it turned out that Phoenix was set up by Klavier Gavin's older brother, defense attorney Kristoph.  Klavier didn't actually do anything wrong because from his perspective, Wright really did break the law.  Interestingly enough, when this comes to light later in the game, Klavier feels immensely guilty about his mistake and owns up to it, a character trait I always find very respectable.

    Gavin's thirst for the truth is something he carries with him for the whole game.  Two of the murders in the game turn out to be one of his very good friends, and even his brother, but he doesn't evade his values to protect either of them, instead assisting Apollo in ensuring justice is delivered and both find their ways behind bars.  Usually, such a scenario would create a cliched inner character conflict where the character struggles to decide whether to uphold the law or protect their family, but to Gavin, the choice is clear - persecute the guilty, no matter who they are.

    While his firm devotion to justice from the get-go makes Klavier an interesting prosecutor, he's cemented a place on this character list because he's a riotously fun character.  This is because though Klavier is a full time prosecutor, he also is a part time guitarist in a band, and these two aspects of his life blend together constantly.

    He comes to court dressed as if he just got out of a concert.  His celebrity rock star persona bleeds into that of a firm prosecutor.  He randomly performs air guitar routines in the middle of a trial.  And he's even a europhile; though he isn't actually German, he sprinkles random German words into his vocabulary, a trait that humorously annoys the hell out of some of the characters.

    I feel as though Klavier is proof that a character that is technically an "antagonist" doesn't have to be villainous at all.  Though he often butts head with the player and Apollo due to the nature of his job, his willingness to work with them if he realizes they are both pursuing the same culprit makes him an admirable character, and his "rock star prosecutor" shtick somehow never grew old.  There's something about seeing a prosecutor randomly jam on an air guitar after making fun of you for bluffing in court that's so surreal, so distinctly "Ace Attorney" that I couldn't help but give Klavier a much deserved spot on this list.

    76) Manfred von Karma

    Appeared In:  Phoenix Wright:  Ace Attorney

    "Wrong.  There is only one thing you need do here.  You will slam down your gavel and say the word 'guilty.'  That is your role!"

    Okay, you're probably sick of reading about Ace Attorney prosecutors if you're not a fan of the series, but I assure you this is the last Ace Attorney character to show up on this list for a while!

    In many ways, Klavier Gavin is a complete inversion of everything Manfred von Karma stands for.  While the former is motivated to pursue the truth and is willing to lose a case if it means the true culprit being apprehended, Manfred is a perfectionist who will use any means necessary to insure he finds the defendant guilty and wins.  He cares not about the suffering of any innocents, only the continuation of his perfect courtroom winning streak.  By the time players encounter him in court, he has never lost a single case in over 40 years of prosecution.

    When rookie defense attorney Phoenix Wright takes up the case of defending Miles Edgeworth, he finds he's able to do so facing little resistance from other attorneys because they are too afraid to verse von Karma in court.  And for good reason; von Karma may not be a deeply written character in the slightest, but he's possibly the most intimidating prosecutor Ace Attorney has ever had.  As a courtroom veteran, he is able to see through Phoenix's thinly veiled tricks.  Trying to press every one of the witness' statements for more evidence will cause him to object and find a way to prevent the witness from talking because the information is "irrelevant to the case."  When the player finds even the smallest possible lead, von Karma immediately comes up with a counter argument and completely crushes the defense.  And so on.  It feels like it's impossible to make any progress in a case with von Karma prosecuting on the other side, and trying to stump a man with that much presence and intelligence made for a fierce and satisfying battle of wits.

    However, von Karma also has a very disturbing connection to the main plot of the first Ace Attorney game; the story of the original Ace Attorney revolves around the relationship between Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth.  As children, the two yearned to be defense attorneys when they grew up, but after losing touch and reconnecting years later, Phoenix is shocked to find that Edgeworth has become a ruthless and unforgiving prosecutor.  As it turns out, this is because von Karma had murdered Edgeworth's father Gregory, a defense attorney and the only lawyer to ever get Manfred a penalty in court and stain his flawless record.  Consumed with vain rage, von Karma murdered Gregory.  Worse still, he ends up adopting Edgeworth (who is oblivious to the fact Manfred is his father's killer) and trains him in his methods of prosecution, molding him into a younger and equally callous version of himself.  It's bad enough that von Karma was driven to kill by his obsessive perfectionism, but the fact he adopted his murdered rival's son and turned him into a man that went against all the noble values his father stood for is a very chilling thought.

    Naturally, Phoenix is able to defeat von Karma in court and save Edgeworth's corrupted soul, but the struggle to get to that point was long and difficult.  However, the sheer satisfaction of making the once intimidating figure literally break out into a sweat with panic when you start to win and bring to life his crimes was an extraordinary moment.  When I crafted this character list I tried to think of all the villains that stood out to me the most in my gaming career, and von Karma immediately came to mind.  His motivations may be petty, but he made for a fearsome foe that required creative thinking and logic to take down, and the cruel way in which he raised Edgeworth is bone chilling to think about.  In many ways, while Klavier Gavin showed us antagonists don't have to be villainous to be compelling, von Karma demonstrates that sometimes a one dimensionally evil villain that is a challenge to take down can be incredibly satisfying and unforgettable in its own right.


    75) Goro Akechi

    Appeared In:  Persona 5

    "My sole interest is uncovering the truth."

    If there's one literary device I love to see seep into video games, it's foil characters.  Foil characters are written in a way that's meant to highlight certain qualities of the protagonist of a story, usually by contrasting with them in some way.  To this end, I think that Goro Akechi is my favorite video game foil character.

    Akechi is born the son of Masayoshi Shido, an absurdly arrogant and cold man who cares for nothing more than his own self advancement in the field of politics.  Shido wants nothing to do with Goro, believing him to be nothing more than a burden to his political success.  His mother subsequently commits suicide, leaving Akechi alone in the world from infancy.  Akechi is faced with growing up a *** child, which is a great stigma in Japan.  Like all humans, inside he yearns for nothing more than acceptance from his peers, but he can't seem to garner it no matter what he does.  He excels in school, refines his manners and tries to act the part of the perfect gentleman, but he can't seem to find people who accept him for who he truly is.  And because this is Persona, a god decides to intervene and be jerks to humanity, because that's what they do in Shin Megami Tensei and its spinoffs.

    He grants Akechi the "wild card" ability, which allows him to enter the Metaverse (an alternate reality based on people's cognition) and control powerful magic beings called Personas.  He is told to use this ability to kill people's "shadows," representations of people based on their repressed consciousness, an action that ultimately kills them in real life.  Initially, Akechi does this to terrible individuals that are exploiting society (which is frankly morally dubious as best), but eventually he uses this power to try and win favor with his father, eliminating all of his political opponents so that Shido can become prime minister.  Akechi hopes that doing so will finally win him recognition in his father's eyes, or at least provide him with the opportunity to kill him for damning him to a life of neglect and loneliness.

    However, Akechi hides his true mentally unhinged and self loathing nature well.  He finds fame as a student detective "solving" the murders and mental breakdowns he actually committed and becoming something of a celebrity in Japan.  However, this still doesn't quench Akechi's desire for affection, as the people only love him for the false persona he is putting on for the public, and the fickle masses all too easily stop supporting him when the Phantom Thieves rise in popularity later on in the game.

    Towards the end of the game, Akechi ends up joining the protagonist's party in an attempt to trick and kill them, viewing the Phantom Thieves as a threat to his plans.  This trick is thwarted however, and after being bested in Shido's Palace (an area of the Metaverse based on the way he thinks), Akechi sees a cognitive version of himself, based on how Shido views him.  This cognitive version of Akechi is a spineless lapdog who would sacrifice himself in an instant for Shido.  Realizing that his father truly thinks of him as nothing more than a pawn, Akechi finally realizes the error of his ways and in a moment of peril, sacrifices himself so that the Phantom Thieves can change Shido's heart and thwart his plans for becoming prime minister.

    Akechi is a tragic villain, as right before his death he admits that he enjoyed his time with the Phantom Thieves, believing his short time with them the only one in his life when he was surrounded by friends who accepted him for who he was.  He laments that he couldn't have met the protagonist sooner, for doing so would've prevented him from going down the murderous path he chose born of loneliness.

    The main theme of Persona 5 is that even if we can't instigate large scale societal reform like the Phantom Thieves could by changing people's hearts, we can still change our world by altering our perceptions - by behaving as our true selves even if society labels us deviant; we'll eventually find someone who accepts us for who we are.  The protagonist is someone who lives by this message.  He was unfairly labeled a delinquent by society but doesn't let this label deter him from being successful, and his pride and sense of justice enable him to meet many friends who bond with him for who he is.

    By contrast, Akechi is someone who is consumed by how society perceives him.  Having been born a lonely and unwanted child, he yearns for nothing more than widespread acceptance.  He adopts a false persona and betrays who he really is in a desperate bid for attention.  And because of this he still feels isolated, which prompts him to fall into insanity and turn to murder.

    There's no denying that Akechi is a deplorable villain, but the game still managed to make me feel some sympathy for him, as I believe many of us, myself included, have gone through some phase of our lives where we felt no one would accept us because of some aspect of our character.  Akechi as a foil character to the protagonist is a warning that we shouldn't let yearning for society's approval corrupt who we really are.  For providing both a memorable foil character and a valuable life lesson, Goro Akechi has more than earned a spot on this character list of mine.

    74) Wes

    Appeared In:  Pokemon Colosseum


    Probably thousands of people before me have pointed this out in comments sections, Youtube videos, comics, and the like, but I think it's fair to say the Pokemon series is more than a little formulaic.  Almost every game in the series stars a ten year old who receives a starter Pokemon from a Professor whose last name is a type of tree, defeats a bunch of powerful Pokemon trainers, a team of evil weirdos, and finally become the strongest Pokemon trainer on their continent.  Rinse and repeat, you've heard this a thousand times before.

    This is why I find it so disappointing that Pokemon Colosseum is largely ignored by the gaming community.  I've written about the game before, and believe that while it does have some glaring flaws, it also offered up a lot of unique ideas that shook the foundation of the Pokemon series long before 2016's Sun and Moon finally did the same.  Most notably, Colosseum eschews having players star as a bright eyed young trainer in favor of someone very different.

    Colosseum's protagonist is Wes, a young man who is already an established Pokemon Trainer and member of one of his region's evil teams, "Team Snagem," an organization that utilizes a device known as the Snag Machine to steal people's Pokemon for their own benefit.  That is, until Wes detonates Snagem's base and makes off with the Snag Machine.

    Wes' backstory is largely up to player interpretation, but seeing as he is the only Pokemon protagonist to never have his parents mentioned, I always got the impression he didn't have any, and got involved with Team Snagem because he had nowhere else to go.  Once he realized that he had a talent for stealing Pokemon, he decided to stick with the organization.  Then when he reached adulthood and independence, he began to have a change of heart and left the team with a bang (literally) in an attempt to make up for some of his past crimes.  Though to be fair, this is basically my headcanon, not an official character bio.

    From this point on, Wes' new goal is to take down the region's other evil team, Team Cipher, who create what are known as "Shadow Pokemon" by "closing the door to the hearts of Pokemon" (which I'm pretty sure is Nintendo for "abusing Pokemon to make them stronger").  I always got the impression that in spite of being rough around the edges, Wes always loved Pokemon, as his two starter Pokemon are Espeon and Umbreon, who only evolve when they reach max levels of happiness with their trainer.  So not only is Wes a tough guy who is also an animal lover, but he also starts the game with my two all time favorite Pokemon, which earns him some brownie points in my book.  Based on this euphemism for Pokemon abuse, I always felt as though Colosseum was a journey to save abused Pokemon from a team that was harming them for their own benefit, a story I found way more compelling and refreshing than becoming the "best like no one ever was" for the umpteenth time.

    Pokemon protagonists have always been silent and had virtually carbon copied barren backstories, and this trend has only gotten worse in recent main series installments.  This is why I always liked Wes' character - he's the polar opposite of what you'd expect from a Pokemon hero.  He's older, rough around the edges, doesn't have a creepy smile on his face all the time, and rides around on a super cool hoverbike.  I'm not going to lie and say he's deeply written or has a strong character arc or anything.  I've just always Wes because the idea of a reformed criminal travelling the land and saving abused Pokemon is a way more interesting setup for a Pokemon adventure than what the main series has been recycling for the past few years, and for being the centerpiece of one of the most refreshing Pokemon games out there, silent hero Wes has found his way on my character list as well.

    73) Linebeck

    Appeared In:  The Legend of Zelda:  Phantom Hourglass

    "The name's Linebeck!  I'm a real man of the sea.  Impressive, huh?"

    As I stated in my previous character list installment when discussing Midna, the Legend of Zelda series is victim to a series of obnoxious sidekicks for Link that often bark out orders and hold the player's hand until circulation is cut off, while undergoing little to no character growth themselves.  There are exceptions however, and one of my favorite of the bunch is the renowned sea captain Linebeck.

    Linebeck is one of Link's partners in Phantom Hourglass, the captain of the creatively named S.S. Linebeck.  Yup, he named his boat after himself.  Can you already tell what kind of character he is?

    Link and Linebeck initially cross paths the former needs to find a boat to carry him to a nearby island to start his journey of saving the world once more.  The townsfolk tell him of Linebeck, whom they describe as a brave captain they all look up to for his fearlessness, painting an image in the player's head that they're about to meet a man whose courageousness can match even Link's.

    However, the Linebeck that Link ends up meeting is actually as boisterous as he is cowardly, talking up how great he is before immediately abandoning Link at the first sign of danger.  Throughout the campaign of Phantom Hourglass, Linebeck is just about the antithesis of a typical Legend of Zelda partner.  His advice is seldom helpful, and he barely assists Link in his adventure at all.  He never accompanies the green clad hero on land, finding increasingly hilarious excuses to stay with the boat before finally admitting he just doesn't want to.  When monsters invade the ship he cowers and hides in fear while 12 year old Link fends them off.  His sole motivation for accompanying Link is the promise of treasure.  And in return, Link essentially just keeps him around because he needs a boat.

    Frankly, Link and Linebeck share a hilarious dynamic, as Linebeck is really only good for his boat.  His character theme (linked above) and the way in which the various islanders hold him in high regard completely contrasts the fickle and greedy man he actually is.  His few moments of bravery are often by accident, such as when he saved a pirate girl from a sea monster by accidentally crashing his boat into it while attempting to escape.

    However, also unlike most Legend of Zelda sidekicks, Linebeck undergoes actual character growth over the course of the game.  Towards the end, Link's bravery begins to wear off on our timid friend, and he displays an increased willingness to save the land for heroics rather than riches.  During the final battle with an evil force known as Bellum, Link and Tetra are incapacitated, and it is only by Linebeck picking up Link's sword and stabbing Bellum with it that the duo is saved (even though Linebeck was trembling in fear the entire time).  And in a particularly great moment for the character, after Bellum is defeated Linebeck is granted one wish.  He can finally obtain all the riches and glory he dreamed of throughout the entire game.  But instead, he chooses to be humble and merely asks his ship be repaired after its destruction in the final battle.

    Even though Phantom Hourglass as a whole is a somewhat forgettable installment of the Legend of Zelda franchise, Linebeck is anything but.  The hilarious way in which his reputation clashes with his actual personality is very memorable, and the fact that he's pretty much useless throughout much of the campaign is an entertaining departure from most sidekicks in the Zelda series.  However, his gradual growth of a backbone and his humble wish at the end show that he grew alongside Link over the course of the game, and as his ship sailed into the distance after the credits, it made Linebeck, like Midna before him, one of the few Legend of Zelda sidekicks I was sad to see go... even if I basically just used him for a ride for 3/4 of the game.

    72) Groose

    Appeared In:  The Legend of Zelda:  Skyward Sword

    "This place needs a name...  Yeah...  A name fitting for this rugged, adventurous wilderness.  From now on, we'll call it...  Grooseland!"

    It's safe to say that Skyward Sword is, to put it mildly, a polarizing game among Legend of Zelda fans.  In many ways, the recently released Breath of the Wild was made in reaction to Skyward Sword, as the latter's intense linearity and de-emphasis of exploration was met with harsh criticism from some fans.  However, if there's one thing I feel Skyward Sword handled especially well, it was characterization, as even the shop vendors ooze more personality than the already fairly lively NPCs that The Legend of Zelda is known for.

    A particular favorite of mine among Skyward Sword's characters is the pompadour toting Groose.  A fellow student of Link's at the Skyloft Knight Academy, Groose is frankly, a bully.  He has a crush on Zelda that's created an awkward love triangle with Link, and he goes out of his way to be a jerk to Link on every occasion he gets.  Which is quite often considering Skyloft's cramped size.  He's a total tool to the player and Link at the outset of Skyward Sword, but something about his dopey character theme and over the top silly insults made him an endearing character right off the bat.

    After Zelda falls to the surface following a certain ceremony and Link awakens to his destiny to pursue her, Groose falls into a deep depression.  Both his crush and her lover are destined to play epic roles to save the world, and he's left behind on Skyloft with little to do.  Eventually, he decides to pursue Link to the surface world.  After a hilarious scene in which he almost plunges Link into the ground and arrogantly names the world below Skyloft "Grooseland", Groose insists that Link go home and let him take up his former role as legendary hero.  However, once again Groose is forced to eat a slice of humble pie as a terrifyingly large monster known as the Imprisoned breaks from a nearby seal, and only Link has the power to stop it.  Twice humbled, Groose begins to grow frustrated once more, but after he is told that he has a role to play in Link and Zelda's destiny as well, he begins work on a massive project, one whose nature isn't known until much later in the story.

    When the Imprisoned attempts to break its seal once more later on, Link finds that he's not alone in stopping it.  In Link's absence, Groose created a massive mobile cannon that he dubbed the "Groosenator," a contraption that proves to be invaluable in ensuring the Imprisoned stays sealed as it continues to break free and grow more powerful on each attempt.  Which his device proving useful, Groose undergoes a massive change in heart.  He seems more more mild mannered and content with the role he was meant to play in Link and Zelda's struggle.  He's not destined to be the wielder of the blade of evil's bane or the one who will seal evil away for millennia, but the Groosenator is still absolutely instrumental in ensuring Link and Zelda are able to save the land, and Groose finds satisfaction in playing a small part to save the world.  The Groose who built this canon displays a surprising amount of resourcefulness, quick thinking, and is much more humble than the school bully we saw at the beginning of the game, though he's still retained his endearingly goofy nature.

    One of the reasons I really enjoyed Skyward Sword is that Link and Zelda aren't the only characters who undergo growth over the course of the game.  Groose too comes a long way from where he was at the beginning, transforming from an arrogant bully to an indispensible ally after eating a slice of humble pie on the surface world.  The final personality he develops is also surprisingly mature, yet retaining a bit of his silly charm from his bullying days, which does wonders to ensuring he feels like the same character throughout.  Skyward Sword stumbled in quite a few ways and I feel the criticisms leveled against it are mostly fair, but I feel the strong characterization and character arc of Groose reflects that the game has a lot of heart tucked away under its crippling linearity.

    71) Ghirahim

    Appeared In:  The Legend of Zelda:  Skyward Sword

    "...I got a little carried away there, didn't I?  I don't deal well with... complications to plans I've laid out so carefully.  It's a character flaw of mine."

    If there's one complaint I have with The Legend of Zelda series as a whole, it's that it relies far too much on Ganon as a villain.  That isn't to say Ganon is inherently an uninteresting character - on the contrary, some of his appearances, such as those in Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, were iconic and extremely well written respectively.  However, far more often than not Ganon is just an extremely aggressive and one note baddy to stick a sword into and, he fails to leave a lasting impression before the end of the games.  That's why I've always found it really refreshing when the series introduced new villains to take down, such as the mischievous Skull Kid of Majora's Mask, or the main antagonist for much of Skyward Sword, Ghirahim.

    As I said before, Skyward Sword's greatest asset in my opinion is its characterization, as it does a great job of highlighting the growth of more than just its twin protagonists Link and Zelda.  In the case of Ghirahim, Skyward Sword tells a compelling descent into insanity for one of the series' more unique villains.  Players first encounter Ghirahim very early on as the boss of the first dungeon, which was quite a surprise since players usually don't get to face off against the main antagonist of a Zelda game until the very end.  However, at this point Ghirahim is greatly holding back his true power.  In contrast to Ganondorf, Ghirahim is effeminate, toying, suave, and well-spoken, though he is every bit as arrogant as the Gerudo king.  He deems his gorgeous demonic form above that of mere humans and decides to take "pity" on Link by going easy on him in their first encounter, not even treating the legendary hero as a serious threat.  He legitimately doesn't think he'll be able to accomplish anything so he even decides to spare him, deeming him a complete non-issue.

    However, over the course of Skyward Sword as Link grows in strength, he puts a stop to more and more of Ghirahim's plans and begins to match him in strength.  The initially calm and almost respectful demon lord begins to grow short fused, and in the inevitable encounters with Link he holds back less and less, becoming more and more frustrated with each encounter.  It's a very gradual transformation, but Ghirahim remains imposing throughout.  While he initially comes across as intimidating because of the great strength he hides beneath his placid facade, when his true nature comes out, a hidden lust for violence begins to surface, keeping the character refreshingly unpredictable in behavior throughout the whole game.

    Eventually, Link catches Ghirahim right before he is about to revive his true master, Demise, the source of all evil in the Legend of Zelda universe.  Enraged that he's being stopped once more by the hero right before the moment he's been waiting centuries for, he challenges Link to one final duel, this time full on embracing his insanity and bloodlust, and what follows is one of the most memorable fights in the series' history.

    While Skyward Sword is frequently criticized for its motion controls, I actually found its swordplay to be the most compelling in the series, as the 1:1 mapped movement of Link's sword to the Wii Remote makes fights feel much more strategic and personal than the "wait and then mash the b button" combat of previous 3D Zelda games.  The increased difficulty of each Ghriahim fight aligned with his increased mental stability perfectly, making him feel like a villain that was evolving in strength and demeanor to match the player's growth.  And at the end of it all, it's revealed that Ghirahim is actually only a physical manifestation of Demise's weapon.  He immediately sacrifices his body to become Demise's sword in a rather disturbing scene (for a Nintendo game anyway) and the reveal that your nemesis for the whole game was simply the weapon of an even greater threat was very well done.

    I enjoyed Ghirahim as a villain because he's such a departure from the typical Legend of Zelda baddie.  He's not just a static force of evil.  He's a fully fleshed out character that sinks from pompous rival to bloodthirsty monster slowly over the course of Skyward Sword's story.  Moreover, he encounters and fights the player numerous times over the course of the story, rather than just showing up once or twice and then being the final boss of the game, ensuring that Link and Ghriahim had a real and very personal rivalry.  Skyward Sword may not be my favorite Zelda game, but the gradual devolution of Ghirahim's sanity puts him among my favorite villains in the series, and favorite video game characters of all time.


    And that's the end of this installment!  It wasn't my intention, but this week's turned out to be pretty heavy on Ace Attorney and The Legend of Zelda.  However, the following installments will have a bit more diversity on display, so I hope you're looking forward to seeing where this list goes next!

              Đurđevac NOVI SAD: Ljubavna priča Petra Graše   

    Središnji ljetni glazbeni događaj u regiji Novosadsko muzičko ljeto ispričao je jednu od najljepših ljubavnih priča. Najiščekivaniji koncert sezone akustična je glazbena priča More i ja, more i ti kojom se predstavio hrvatski kantautor Petar Grašo.

    Danima rasprodan koncert bila je odlična najava kako će biti riječ o jedinstvenom i nezaboravnom glazbenom spektaklu na koji su obožavatelji Petra Graše, jednog od najprodavanijih hrvatskih glazbenika, čekali više od desetljeća.

    Euforična atmosfera, brojna raznježena i raspjevana lica obožavateljica, glazbeni repertoar koji je ispunio srca svih pristunih, slika su ljubavne priče i nezaboravnog glazbenog putovanja Petra Graše i njegovih novosadskih obožavatelja, a kiša svjetlećih meteora koja je obasjala novosadsko nebo dala je dodatnu čar koncertu.

    “Uvijek kada dođeš prvi put u neki grad imaš blagu tremu jer ne znaš koliko je i na koji način tvoja glazba tu ostavila traga. Međutim, ispostavilo se da je trema bila uzaludna jer je ovo bio jedan od onih koncerata koji se pamte.“ – izjavio je glazbenik Petar Grašo nakon koncerta u Novom Sadu i dodao: “Publika je bila fantastična i zaista sam uživao u čarobnim trenucima i ljubavi mojih novosadskih prijatelja.“

    Novosadsko muzičko ljeto već godinama oduševljava brojne poklonike sjajne glazbe, a osim Petra, ove su godine svoje pjesme predstavili i Vlatko Stefanovski, Stefan Milenković te brojni drugi vrhunski umjetnici.

    Nakon duže pjevačke pauze, Petar se na radost brojnih obožavatelja vratio najvećoj ljubavi glazbi, a njegov povratnički hit Uvik isti tjednima je na samom vrhu glazbenih ljestvica u cijeloj regiji. Ovih dana završava se i video spot čija nas premijera očekuje uskoro.

              Đurđevac HEP: Najjeftiniji je kilovat kojeg niste potrošili   
    Provođenje sustavnog gospodarenja energijom za kompanije danas je nužnost i obaveza, koja ne mora zahtijevati visoka ulaganja, a istovremeno može rezultirati značajnim smanjenjem potrošnje energije i financijskim uštedama, zaključak je Negawatt Foruma 2014, prve hrvatske konferencije na temu sustavnog gospodarenja energijom, koja se održala jučer u Opatiji. Predstavnici najvećih hrvatskih kompanija, ujedno i najvećih potrošača energije, priznali su da je njihovo usmjerenje sustavnom gospodarenju energijom prvenstveno rezultat značajnog rasta cijena energije u nekoliko proteklih godina i novih zakonskih obveza u području zaštite okoliša i energetske učinkovitosti, koje su ih prisilile na smanjenje potrošnje energenata.
    "Potrošnja energije u svijetu ubrzano raste, cijene energenata rastu, emisije ugljikovodika u okoliš rastu, a glavni su "krivci" razvijene zemlje. Zato je Europska unija donijela niz klimatskih i energetskih paketa kako bi dosegla poznati 20-20-20 cilj, odnosno 20-postotno smanjenje emisija CO2, 20-postotno korištenje energije iz obnovljivih izvora i 20-postotno smanjenje potrošnje energije do 2020. godine. Hrvatska, kao zemlja članica, mora u skladu s tim, postići značajne energetske uštede u javnom sektoru, kućanstvima, industriji i transportu. Za industriju to znači samo jedno - implementaciju sustavnog gospodarenja energijom prema zahtjevima međunarodne norme ISO 50001", objasnio je Francisco Zamarron iz milanskog ureda certifikacijske kuće Det Norske Veritas. 

    Njegovo mišljenje dijeli i dr.sc. Zoran Morvaj iz Europske banke za obnovu i razvoj, koji naglašava izniman značaj donošenja energetskih politika i strategija na razini Europske unije, no upozorava kako zemlje članice istovremeno samostalno razvijaju lokalne strategije i neke od njih, poput Danske, već imaju značajne rezultate. "Energija se do 1973. godine smatrala besplatnom, a danas je ona značajan trošak za industriju i kućanstva, a zbog svoje visoke cijene predstavlja i političko oružje, pa je u posljednjem desetljeću energetska efikasnost skočila u prvi plan. Najveći izazov i budućnost energetske efikasnosti leži u promjeni našeg ponašanja kako u svojem domu, tako i na radnom mjestu. U doba stagnacije i recesije, zbog velike cijene energije i malih margina u gotovo svim sektorima, jednu od najvećih rezervi predstavljaju troškovi energije", zaključuje dr.sc. Morvaj.

    Iako hrvatsko zakonodavstvo uspješno prati europsku regulativu u području energije i energetske učinkovitosti, savjetnik Ministra za gospodarstvo Republike Hrvatske dr.sc. Tomislav Radoš naglašava da treba biti realan u implementaciji. "Mi smo se obavezali i moramo ostvariti ciljeve EU 2020, ali moramo industriji ostaviti mogućnost da bude konkurentna, prvenstveno po pitanju produktivnosti i učinkovitosti, koja je tek na počecima. Veliki je problem dijela industrije, kao što je kemijska, činjenica da su pred kolapsom zbog visokih troškova energije. Naravno da kod njih postoji veliki prostor za energetsku učinkovitost, no one koje su u financijskim problemima niti nemaju mogućnost za to. Kada pogledate koje se kompanije danas sustavno bave energetskom učinkovitosti, onda su to one industrije koje već danas dobro posluju", upozorio je dr.sc. Radoš.

    S njim se slaže prof.dr.sc. Tonko Ćurko, predsjednik Hrvatske udruge za rashladnu, klima tehniku i dizalice topline koji tvrdi kako je Europska unija preregulirana. "Mi se danas natječemo na svjetskom tržištu na kojem moramo biti konkurentni, a istovremeno moramo ispoštovati sve ono što od nas traži Europska unija. Mi to moramo i hoćemo napraviti, ali ekologija i energija košta, a regulativu su proizveli oni čiji je BDP daleko veći od našeg. To je kao da smo krenuli na trku od 100 metara, netko kreće sa startne linije, a netko 30 metara iza startne linije. No, sigurno je da ćemo startati", tvrdi prof.dr.sc. Ćurko.

    S obzirom da je certificiranje prema međunarodnoj normi ISO 50001 u Hrvatskoj u samim začetcima, sudionici su dobili priliku čuti kako izgleda sustavno gospodarenje energijom iz perspektive Telekoma Slovenija, jedne od prvih tvrtki u regiji kojoj je dodijeljen certifikat ISO 50001 od strane certifikacijske kuće SIQ. "Najjeftiniji je kilovat kojeg niste potrošili. Implementacijom sustavnog gospodarenja energijom od 2009. godine do danas smo uspjeli smanjiti potrošnju energije za 2 milijuna eura, a naši napori su usmjereni na daljnje uštede. Svima onima koji planiraju implementirati sustavno gospodarenje energijom preporučam korištenje iskustava drugih kompanija, čak i iz drugih branši", objasnio je mag.sc Andrej Andoljšek.

    Najveći izazov je pred najvećim potrošačima iz sektora industrije čija ukupna godišnja neposredna potrošnja energije prelazi 10 milijuna kWh godišnje, odnosno oko 5 milijuna kWh električne energije. No, iz HEP Opskrbe upozoravaju da nije lakše ni opskrbljivačima. "HEP Opskrba opskrbljuje više od 200 velikih potrošača, čija ukupna godišnja potrošnja predstavlja više od 20 posto potrošnje kupaca HEP Opskrbe. Novi Zakon o učinkovitom korištenju energije, stavlja i pred nas kao opskrbljivače niz novih obaveza. Tako smo dužni poticati primjenu mjera energetske učinkovitosti i energetske usluge koje pružamo u sinergiji s tvrtkom HEP ESCO. Zvuči kao da pokušavamo spojiti nespojivo jer bi nama kao opskrbljivaču trebalo biti u interesu prodati što više energije, dok istovremeno nudimo usluge uštede energije kroz energetsku učinkovitost. No, kao i industriji, i nama je u interesu da je trošak po jedinici proizvoda što manji, kako bi hrvatsko gospodarstvo bilo što konkurentnije", objasnila je mr.sc. Tina Jakaša, direktorica HEP Opskrbe. 

    Iako se do efikasnog sustava gospodarenja energijom može doći i bez velikih kapitalnih izdataka, oni i dalje postoje. Fond za zaštitu okoliša i energetsku učinkovitost, koji je do danas investirao više od 3 milijarde kuna u energetsku učinkovitosti i obnovljive izvore energije, predstavio je planirane potpore za ovu godinu. "Trenutačno imamo otvoreno nekoliko javnih poziva za energetske preglede višestambenih zgrada,  javne rasvjete , ustanova, institucija, ali i industrije i komercijalnog uslužnog sektora. Po prvi puta omogućeno je i sufinanciranje troškova uvođenja sustava ISO 50001. Poslovni sektor je nažalost najmanji korisnik naših linija sufinanciranja, no očekujemo sve veći interes u području energetske učinkovitosti", rekao je Sven Müller, direktor Fonda za zaštitu okoliša i energetsku učinkovitost.

    Velikim potrošačima zanimljiv je ESCO model provedbe i financiranja mjera energetske učinkovitosti, kod kojih se investicije vraćaju iz ušteda, a bez dodatnog angažiranja sredstava od strane klijenta, no također i uvođenje sustavnog gospodarenja energijom u kojima im ESCO tvrtke mogu pomoći. "Cjelovita energetska usluga obuhvaća više od provedbe mjera. Ona obuhvaća praćenje energetskih svojstava i energetskih sustava zgrade, praćenje potrošnje energije u zgrada, sustavima javne rasvjete, industrijskim postrojenjima, sustavima obnovljivih izvora energije, mjerenje i verifkaciju postignutih ušteda, edukaciju odgovornih osoba te utjecaj na ponašanje korisnika koji troše energiju", objasnila je dr.sc. Vlasta Zanki, direktorica tvrtke HEP ESCO.

    O svojim iskustvima u sustavnom gospodarenju energijom govorili su i predstavnici velikih potrošača CEMEX Hrvatska, Agrokor, Pliva, Elektro-kontakt, ELKA i VIPnet. 

    Forum je dobio naziv prema dosta neuobičajenom terminu "negawatt", koji opisuje količinu ušteđene energije u jedinici vremena (W) kao izravan rezultat povećanja energetske učinkovitosti, što je ujedno i glavna tema ove konferencije.

    Negawatt Forum 2014 organizirali su Hrvatsko mjeriteljskog društvo i Studio Conex, uz podršku programskog partnera HEP ESCO-a te Hrvatske udruge poslodavaca.

              Đurđevac DJEVOJKE KOJE SJAJE! Lauren Beukes uskoro u Hrvatskoj   

    Lauren Beukes južnoafrička je nagrađivana spisateljica koja piše romane i televizijske scenarije, snima dokumentarce, autorica je tekstova za stripove, a povremeno radi i kao novinarka.
    Godine 2011. osvojila je nagradu Arthur C. Clarke za roman Zoo City, smješten u fantastičnom Johannesburgu. Među prethodnim djelima ističe se i Moxyland, distopijski cyberpunk-roman čija je radnja smještena u Cape Town, u kojem vlada korporativni aparthejd.
    Prošle godine Beukes izdaje Djevojke koje sjaje (Profil Knjiga, 79,00 kn). Snažan je to, napet i privlačan triler koji ruši sve granice mogućeg, uključujući i granice autoričina uspjeha. Bestseler u Velikoj Britaniji i rodnoj joj Južnoj Africi postiže izvrsne rezultate u kontinentalnoj Europi. U završnom broju magazina Entertainment Weekly Stephen King navodi Djevojke koje sjaje među deset najboljih knjiga koje je pročitao u 2013. godini. Producentska kuća Leonarda DiCaprija otkupila je već prava za ekranizaciju ovoga romana.
    U ovom je izuzetno napetu romanu Lauren Beukes uspjela spojiti gotovo nespojivo: akciju i liriku, triler i povijesni roman, SF i krimić. Učinila je to bez spisateljskog napora, čitateljima na radost: ovo je roman koji se ne ispušta iz ruku dok se ne pročita do kraja.
    Zagreb, Rijeku i Pazin posjetit će u sklopu svoje europske turneje, a za prvi susret s Hrvatskom odvojila je još nekoliko dana odmora. Ovog se tjedna Beukes druži s čitateljima u Poljskoj, a nakon Istre „Djevojke“ će zasjati u gradu svjetlosti, Parizu. Upravo je završila pisanje svoga novog romana Broken Monsters.
    Raspored javnih nastupa Lauren Beukes u Hrvatskoj:
    Zagreb: 28. 3. (petak), 18 h, Profil Mozaik Megastore, Bogovićeva 7
    Rijeka: 29. 3. (subota), 11 h, Ex libris, Riva Boduli 3b
    Pazin: 29. 3. (subota), 17 h, Istrakon, Spomen dom

    Ponavljamo, Djevojkama koje sjaje nije odolio ni Stephen King, možete li vi?

    „Izvanredno. Knjiga o dvoboju dva sjajno realizirana lika. Nevjerojatno postignuće.” – Independent
    „Nova vrsta trilera. Mračna, nesmiljena i napeta priča o ubojstvima u iskrivljenom vremenu. Priča koja sjaji.” – Matt Haig
    „Domišljata priča, pametna proza.” – Stephen King

              Đurđevac ZAGREBAČKI VELESAJAM: Otvoreni DANI LJEPOTE   

    Sajam je otvorila prof.dr.sc. Mirna Šitum, pročelnica Ureda za zdravstvo Grada Zagreba. Među ostalima istaknula je da su u ovom sajmu objedinjeni i ljepota i zdravlje jer ljepota je zdravlje. Pohvalila je želju organizatora da približi medicinu kozmetologiji jer je potrebno da se isprepliću znanje medicine i korektivne kozmetologije. Bez zajedničkog rada nema dobrih rezultata.

    Svake godine nastojimo uvesti neki novitet. Ove godine to je Skin centar, dermatološki prostor gdje Zagrebački velesajam uz podršku Gradskog ureda za zdravstvo grada Zagreba od petka do nedjelje organizira besplatne preglede madeža i ostalih promjena na koži za sve posjetitelje s kupljenom ulaznicom. Specijalisti dermatolozi iz zagrebačkih domova zdravlja pružat će našim posjetiteljima osim (unaprijed prijavljenog) pregleda i informacije o rizicima izlaganja UV zračenju i pravilnoj njezi kože.

    Uz Skin centar farmaceutske tvrtke imat će priliku izložiti svoje proizvode, prodavati ih po promotivnim cijenama, a stručni suradnici posjetiteljima prezentirati i preporučiti najbolje ili najnovije brendove za njegu kože, kose i vlasišta.

    Na Danima ljepote održat će se brojna zanilmljiva predavanja, seminari i natjecanja. Organizirana je i nagradna igra za sve posjetitelje.

    Na sajmu nastupa 175 izlagača iz 29 zemalja. Otvoren je do nedjelje, 9. ožujka, a radno vrijeme je od 10 do 19 sati.

              Đurđevac Edukacija o fondovima Europske unije za male i srednje poduzetnike   

    Grad Mali Lošinj, zajedno s partnerima Gradom Bakrom, Regionalnom razvojnom agencijom Porin, Lokalnom razvojnom agencijom Pins i Kanalom Ri, krenuo je u realizaciju projekta Malo poduzetništvo u velikoj Europi (Small business in a big Europe).

    Cilj ove inicijative je informirati poduzetnike s područja Primorsko-goranske županije o promjenama nastalim nakon ulaska Republike Hrvatske u Europsku uniju, kao i o mogućnostima financiranja njihovih projektnih inicijativa sredstvima iz fondova Europske unije.

    S tim ciljem, 21. veljače 2014. godine, s početkom u 11.00 sati, u Maloj vijećnici Grada Krka organizira se predavanje namijenjeno upravo malim i srednjim poduzetnicima. Nakon predavanja, 25. i 26. veljače, na istom mjestu, također s početkom u 11.00 sati, održat će se radionica na kojoj će okupljeni imati priliku, kroz praktičan rad, naučiti kako pripremiti prijedlog projekta za prijavu na natječaj Europske unije te kako uspješno upravljati samim projektom. 

    Ova hvalevrijedna inicijativa financirana je sredstvima Europske unije, što znači da je edukacija u cijelosti besplatna. Svi zainteresirani poduzetnici stoga se mole da svoje sudjelovanje potvrde najkasnije do 20. veljače 2014. godine. Prijava je moguća putem e-maila ivka.simunovic@mali-losinj.hr, odnosno telefona 051 231 056 ili mobitela 099 2187 143. Kontakt osoba za prijavu, ali i ostale informacije je Ivka Šimunović.

              Đurđevac Ivan Zak „Zapalio“ Dom sportova!   

    Usprkos jakom snijegu ove subote, redovi ispred Male dvorane Doma sportova, počeli su se slagati već od 18h, a pružali su se desecima metara od ulaza i do samog početka koncerta nisu se smanjivali. Ivan Zak još jednom je dokazao kako mu ovu dvoranu nije teško napuniti! Sudeći prema registarskim tablicama, fanovi su došli iz cijele Hrvatske: Našica, Osijeka, Koprivnice, Splita, Zadra i drugih gradova.

    Izlaskom Ivana na pozornicu u dvorani se prelomio vrisak koji je dao naslutiti da je subotnja mećava istri tren zaboravljena. U trenutku kad je počeo pjevati „Tko mi te krade“, cijela dvorana vibrirala je od jednoglasja publike koja ga je pratila od prve do zadnje pjesme. Ni sam Ivan nije mogao sakriti uzbuđenje.

    Sjajna atmosfera i nikad bolji Ivan, od početka do kraja držao je publiku na nogama koja je plesala i pjevala zajedno s njim.

    Vrhunac večeri i najveće uzbuđenje izazvale su pjesme  „Bolja od najbolje“ i „Naučila si me“ za koju i sam Zak kaže da mu uvijek prekratko traje te je refren ponovio na opće oduševljenje.

    Na nezaboravnom trosatnom koncertu, kao gost se pojavila Jelena Rozga koja je otpjevala svoja tri hita. Osim nje, Ivanu se pridružila već standardna gošća - Neda Ukraden s kojom je Zak otpjevao njihovu zajedničku pjesmu „Tetovaža“, a mladi tamburaški sastav – Begini, pokazali su da njihovo vrijeme tek dolazi.

    Oduševljen publikom i načinom na koji je dočekan, Ivan je još jednom zahvalio fanovima i dao im obećanje:

    „Zato što ste tako divna publika, ovo je najljepša noć u mom glazbenom životu, vidimo se za 15 do 17 mjeseci sigurno u Areni Zagreb! Hvala vam!“

    Sudeći po viđenom, ne sumnjamo!

              Đurđevac Dokumente ćemo uskoro moći vaditi bez kupovanja biljega?   

    U tijeku je izrada plana kojim bi se ukinuli biljezi do 100 kuna pa će građani biti u mogućnosti putovnicu izvaditi samo jednim dolaskom u prostorije policije, samo uz predočenje osobne iskaznice.

    Administrativni poslovi trebali bi se maksimalno pojednostaviti nakon informatizacije javne uprave.

    - Točno je da razmišljamo o ukidanju biljega, ali to je zasad samo ideja, odnosno radna verzija projekta, rekao je za Jutarnji list Darko Parić, pomoćnik ministra uprave za e-Hrvatsku. Prvo treba vidjeti koliko to košta i tko se tim sredstvima i u kojoj mjeri financira.

    Ministarstvo uprave za početak planira informatički povezati ministarstva kako bi se građanima smanjio teret.

              Katolicismen – ändetidens fördärvbringande världsvälde   
    Bibelstudium av Arne Imsen 1997

    Vi är mer eller mindre berusade av den romerska skökans vin, därför att vi inte har förstått att den guldbägare den i bibeln omtalade skökan håller i sin hand, är Guds eget ord. Det är med Guds ord hon gör sina stora framgångar. Men vi måste göra klart för oss vad denna guldbägare är fylld av. Det kan vi läsa om i det profetiska ordet.

    De flesta har naturligtvis hört talas om katolicismen men vet ytterst lite om den. De känner till ett och annat om den katolska kyrkans dogmer och dess påvedöme. Den kunskapen har sin betydelse, men är definitivt inte det viktigaste.
    Katolicitet är inte i första hand dogmer, utan en andemakt. Denna katolska ande gör att också de flesta protestanter är influerade så att de, utan att känna till det, har ett katolskt beteende, också i sitt gudstjänstliv. Var i Bibeln står det något om ordinerat prästerskap eller vigt kyrkorum? Är det nödvändigt för Guds verks framgång att det finns ordinerat prästerskap, eller en organisation som kallas kyrka eller menighet? Det vi betraktar som självklarheter och absolut nödvändigt för att över huvud taget bedriva verksamhet är inte ens nämnt i Skriften. Varifrån har vi då fått det?
    Vad beror det på att vad väckelsefolkets pionjärgeneration förkunnade är bortglömt? Dock finns det skrifter som ger enkla och klara besked om vägen. De markerar klart och tydligt vad som skiljer nytestamentlig omvändelse- och frälsningsförkunnelse från den kyrkligt sakramentalistiska. Men sådant tas inte upp idag. De flesta märker inte heller att församlingarna är anfrätta av evolutionism och sakramentalism.
    I Sverige finns nästan ett hundra tusen pingstvänner. Dessutom finns ytterligare skaror av andedöpta människor. Jag är övertygad om att allt som dessa människor beder om i sina gudstjänster; det som blivit ett mönster i hela deras gudsbild – andeutgjutelse över allt kött exempelvis – allt detta är Gud mera angelägen om att ge än vad de förmår att uttrycka i sina böner.
    Varför är då verksamheten så trög och tung? Enorma insatser sätts in i väldiga projekt. Är det fel på teologin, organisationen, systemet eller personerna? Varför blir det så ynkliga resultat? Kan det till och med vara på det sättet att människor över huvud taget inte är intresserade av religiösa frågor? Finns det ingen längtan, finns ingen önskan om någon upplevelse som har med försoning och förlåtelse att göra?
    Jag tror att människor har ett oerhört behov av orientering när det gäller frågor om frälsning, liv och evighet. Man kan inte befria sig från dem. Fastän vi har tekniska resurser som aldrig tidigare; TV, radio, medier, vi saknar knappt något då det gäller kommunikation. Församlingarna har också ekonomiska resurser, inte minst därför att till och med staten har sagt sig vara beredd att ge ganska stora bidrag. Ändå måste vi säga att resultatet är fruktansvärt magert. Det är alltså något grundfel. Finns det hos Gud? Hos oss? Eller finns det i världen?

    Låt oss bli riktigt ärliga och några sekunder fundera över detta. Hur skulle kristenheten och den kristna församlingen se ut om alla kristna vore lika brinnande som jag? Lika andesmorda och visionära som jag? Lika offervilliga och disciplinerade som jag? Hur skulle Guds verk då se ut? Det vi kan konstatera och registrera med våra sinnen speglar vår egen slapphet, ljumhet, likgiltighet och tröghet. Vad är det som har påverkat oss? Det kan inte vara Guds Ord. Det kan inte heller vara någon annans fel, utan jag måste söka orsaken i mig själv.
    Om Herren Jesus Kristus fick bryta sig igenom vår vall av tröghet och likgiltighet och gripa tag i oss skalmänniskor och göra oss till kärnmänniskor; besegra slöheten, ljumheten, likgiltigheten, självupptagenheten, skulle det inte saknas brinnande evangelister. Anden är utgjuten, den är redan verksam. Frågan om vi tar emot den bestäms inte av någonting annat än vår överlåtelse åt Herren Jesus Kristus.
    Överlåtelse är inte detsamma som att engagera sig i kursverksamhet, gå med i en kör eller satsa på filantropi, social hjälpverksamhet eller diakonalt arbete. På grund av de missförhållanden vi själva är orsak till får människorna en fullständigt förvrängd och förfalskad bild av Herren Jesus Kristus.
    Gud vill väckelse och andeutgjutelse. Men kristenheten har inte tid. Vad är orsaken till att bönemötena och bibelstudierna avfolkas?

    Det är nästan en sensation med ett vanligt väckelsemöte i vår tids kristenhet. Varför har man övergivit det som varit det typiska, kännetecknande och en absolut nödvändighet för andligt liv, expansion och tillväxt?
    Man menar sig ha hittat någonting effektivare och bättre att engagera ungdomarna i. Det är bra med talanger och musiker till instrument och sång. Men det absolut främsta idealet är inte att många kan traktera instrumenten, men att var och en blir instrument för den helige Ande.
    Målet för församlingen måste vara att nå fram till det som Skriften kallar en full förståndsvisshets hela rikedom. Bibeln talar om mänsklig visdom och Andens. Den mänskliga visdomen har sina metoder och erbjuder rika möjligheter, men den gör oss inte till andliga människor; gudsmänniskor. Den kan inte fostra fram evangelister, herdar och lärare.
    Jag vill inte undervärdera den intellektuella kunskap, som man förvärvar genom studier, men den kvalificerar definitivt inte någon för uppgifterna i Guds rike. För det måste man bli brinnande i anden.
    Det stora problemet i vår tid är inte vad de kristna gör utan vad de underlåter att göra.
    Detta är klart och tydligt illustrerat i Jesu undervisning genom de som underlät att ta med sig tillräckligt med olja. Underlåtenhet. Jag var sjuk och i fängelse, men ni besökte mig icke. Underlåtenhet. Dessutom, då det gäller livsstil och form, så är inte det illegala och förbjudna de svåraste problemen, utan det tillåtna som vi missbrukar. Jesus har sagt klart och tydligt så att det inte kan missförstås:
    Såsom människorna levde på den tiden - de åt och drack o.s.v. Det kan väl inte vara något fel att människor äter och dricker? De byggde och planterade. Här beskrivs allt vad människor tillägnade sig, och vad de underlät. De underlät att lova och prisa Gud såsom Gud. De upphöjde det som de själva hade skapat till Gud, ja, värre än så; människorna gjorde sig själva till Gud.
    Många dukar under för sin egen fåfänglighet. Man bekämpar nazism och kommunism, och tycker sig stå för en god sak. Vi tror oss vara ideologiskt medvetna och upptäcker inte att vi är ockuperade och besatta av en makt, som är mycket värre än både nazism, kommunism och kapitalism; nämligen materialismen.
    Den religiösa materialismen är vidrig. Den är katoliciteten. Den har sina dekorationer och symboler, sin gudsbild, sina löften och erbjudanden. Den vill sälja frid, glädje och salighet.
    Om en väckelse ska kunna bryta fram, måste det träda fram människor som blir rösten av Honom som ropar, och bereder väg för Herren. Det behövs ökenmänniskor som avskilt sig och predikar trovärdigt, utan motsägelse mellan det inre livet och den yttre framtoningen.
    Studera ökenprofetens diet, hans klädsel, hans skor, hans uppträdande. Hans uppenbarelse är ingenting som kittlar fåfängan, men han står där, avklädd och iklädd, fåordig, men med Guds Ord. Han är ingen artist, erbjuder ingen religiös cirkus.
    Det saknas i vår tid en röst som förtar kraften av alla andra röster och budskap, en som bryter igenom sorlet, stimmet, stojet och leken. Herren kallar oss att bli redskap för Honom. Då måste vi göra sällskap med profeten ut i avskildhet. Där skolas vi för uppdraget. Inget seminarium kan ersätta Andens universitet, dit Herren sänder sina tjänare. Han gör det nu som han gjort i alla tider för att de skall bli redskap; rösten av en som ropar rakt in i tiden utan att spekulera i effekter.

    Vår tids kristna söker allt annat än det som är livsviktigt. Det kan vara ting man upplever nödvändiga, men de är inte livsviktiga då de inte handlar om liv eller död, himmel eller helvete. Om inte evighetsdimensionen får prägla livet så saknar vi förmåga och kraft att övertyga eller tillrättalägga, intellektuellt eller religiöst.
    Det blir alltmer modernt att ha dialog. Jag undrar ibland om det är fråga om att etablera dialog med självaste Satan, som förskapar sig till en ljusets ängel och uppträder som apostel. Vad är orsaken till att en så utombiblisk och hednisk företeelse som exempelvis New Age kan fylla människor totalt?
    Egentligen är det ingenting nytt. Hednavärldens gamla gudar kommer igen i ny förklädnad. Parallellt med detta ser vi också att kristenheten är helt vanmäktig och tafatt - eller paralyserad och förtrollad.
    Vi borde resa oss upp och profetera emot detta och med myndighet förklara vad det egentligen är. Inte ha dialog, men profetera. Inte tala om vad religionen har för synpunkter eller vad seminarierna har kommit fram till genom forskning och annat i den stilen. Vi måste ropa: Så säger Herren!
    Det finns en plats, en skola, en pedagog som kan hjälpa oss fram till denna tjänst. Undervisningssalen heter fortfarande Övre Salen. Och universitetet heter Andens universitet. Vapnet som erbjuds är Andens svärd, Guds Ord.
    I Jeremia 48:10 heter det: Förbannad vare den som försumligt utför Herrens verk, förbannad vare den som dröjer att bloda sitt svärd. Vilket språk! Vem är detta adresserat till? Och vem är det som talar? Det är ju förfärliga ord. Ungefär som ordet i 1 Korintierbrevet 16:22: Om någon icke har Herren kär, så vare han förbannad.
    Sammanhanget i Jeremia 48 handlar om Moab. Israel skulle rikta sitt svärd mot sina kusiner. Vad var det för speciellt med Moab? Det visar sig att fienderna var väldigt nära. De utövade inte bara sitt inflytande, utan berövade också Guds folk intagna territorier. De ifrågasatte Israels identitet, berövade dem deras integritet och tog precis allt det som hade betydelse och värde för dem som folk.
    I Psaltaren 137 möter vi uttrycket:
    - Vid Babels floder, där sutto vi och gräto, när vi tänkte på Sion. I pilträden som där var hängde vi upp våra harpor. Ty de som höllo oss fångna bådo oss där att sjunga, och våra plågare bådo oss vara glada: ”Sjungen för oss en av Sions sånger.” Huru skulle vi kunna sjunga Herrens sång i främmande land? Nej, om jag förgäter dig, Jerusalem, så förgäte min högra hand sin tjänst. Min tunga låde vid min gom, om jag upphör att tänka på dig, om jag icke låter Jerusalem vara min allra högsta glädje.
    Detta är ett bibelsammanhang vi gärna stryker under med röd penna. Nog rör det sig i hjärtat när vi hör frihetsklockan ringa för fångar som blir fria. Och det är en realitet: Jesus kom och proklamerade frihet och gav oss rätt att tåga ut.
    Men samtidigt finns krafter som verkar i en annan riktning. Jannes och Jambres var verkligen inte betydelselösa gestalter. De saknade inte möjlighet att påverka, styra och dupera. Deras uppgift var att göra under och därigenom förhindra Israels barns uttåg ur Egypten. Mose kämpade också med under och tecken för att göra uttåget möjligt.

    Detta var alltså under samma tid, med samma övernaturliga krafter, men i olika riktningar. De motverkade och motarbetade varandra. Men styrkedemonstrationen gick mot sin kulmen. Det finns imitatörer, trollkarlar, som opererar också i vår tid.
    Herrens vittnen proklamerar något som ofta är svårt att förstå för människorna, eftersom de saknar förmåga att överföra detta på det andliga område där det hör hemma.
    - Tänk, Herre, på Jerusalems dag, och straffa Edoms barn, dem som ropade: ”Riven ned, riven ned det ända till grunden.” Dotter Babel, du ödeläggelsens stad, säll är den som får vedergälla dig allt vad du har gjort oss. Säll är den som får gripa dina späda barn och krossa dem mot klippan.
    Vad är det som skall krossas mot klippan? Vad skall dräpas? Varför är det nödvändigt att bloda svärdet ända till fästet? Den är säll som gör det, och den som underlåter detta är förbannad. Så står det skrivet. Appellerar detta till hämndgirighet och blodtörst?
    Det är nödvändigt att gå till de bibliska källorna och ta reda på vad de säger, så att den andliga kampen inte blir skuggboxning och spegelfäkteri, inspirerade av världens svaga makter. Det är viktigt att göra vad Skriften lär oss, utrustade med den helige Ande, så att vi kan utföra det uppdrag som är nödvändigt för oss och hela mänskligheten, om vi ska få vara med och befolka himlen.
    I Apostlagärningarna läser vi:
    - När sedan pingstdagen var inne, vore de alla församlade med varandra. Då kom plötsligt från himmelen ett dån, såsom om en våldsam storm hade farit fram; och det uppfyllde hela huset där de sutto.
    Inte bara hjärtana, men i hela huset fanns en himmelsk, förtätad atmosfär. De blev alla uppfyllda av den helige Ande. Det minimikrav himlen ställer är att alla i församlingen är uppfyllda av Anden. Uppfyllda med överflödsliv, uppståndelseliv för att inte proppa igen, hindra, bromsa, inte vara en ljum fläkt eller kallfront, utan bidra till värme i gemenskapen. Ingen har fått dispens så att han kan leva Kristuslivet utan denna andeuppfyllelse.
    Varför är många kristna så bleka och färglösa? Varför saknar de den hänförda blicken? Varför rör de sig så trögt; tvekar och dröjer på stegen när Herren bjuder oss att skynda fram till honom för att göra nya upplevelser?
    Det är lärorikt att studera den heliga historien och då börja med Abraham. I första fasen hans relation till Tera. Han måste frigöras från hedendomen. Sedan måste Abraham frigöras från Lot – ljumheten. Från Ismael – köttet, och från Isak - Guds gåvor. När man gått igenom denna process under en trofast Guds ledning, då finns bara en kvar, och det är Gud själv. Den som söker Honom finner honom.
    För att förstå sammanhanget och ha det rätta perspektivet, måste man lära av Israel i Egypten, Israel i öknen, Israel i landet, men också Israel i Babylon. Det är processer som enskilda kristna, men också Guds folk som helhet, får vara med om. Gud måste i varje tid ropa till sitt folk att gå ut till honom utanför lägret, för att bära hans smälek.
    Då pingstdagen var inne kom överraskningarnas Gud med dån från himmelen. Jag har en känsla av att vi reducerar det där till historia, men det är inte historia, utan en lägesrapport från det heliga kriget. Hur skulle lägesrapporten se ut om den helige Ande – inte vår propaganda eller våra medier – skulle beskriva de konferenser och möten som äger rum i vårt land?
    Är Apostlagärningarna bara ett referat för att vi skulle bli informerade om vad som skedde i förstone, eller är det möjligen samtidigt en profetia så att Gud ger oss urpingstens mönsterbild? Jag tror att det finns en oändlighetsdimension där den helige Ande är. I en värld där orättvisorna tilltar återkommer man alltför ofta till frågorna stor, större och störst.
    Bibeln säger i sin beskrivning av den urkristna församlingen: ”Ingen hade överflöd, ej heller led någon brist.” Det gällde på både det andliga och fysiska området. Vi försöker med olika former av föreningsmodeller att övervinna problemen. Unga samlas på ett ställe, äldre på ett annat, det är mönster som gör att församlingen aldrig kommer tillsammans utan uppdelas i olika fack: Rika, fattiga, bildade, obildade, äldre, produktiv ålder, ungdom och barn. Jag tror att detta är en förfärlig synd som inte kan övervinnas genom extatiska möten eller lovsång.

    Finns det möjlighet att komma fram till en klasslös gemenskap? Vi måste bloda svärdet till fästet och dräpa hindren; slå alla Babels barn som växer fram i församlingen - slå dem mot frälsningsklippan. Nu talar jag inte om den urkristna församlingen, utan om den yttersta tidens församling, som Herren skall upprätta i sin ursprungliga härlighet.
    Jag tror att det kommer en ny epok för Guds församling, en tid med en ursprunglig livsstil med urkristna medel och en utomordentlig framtid.
    Den urkristna församlingens liv präglades av att de var församlade varje dag med varandra. Gud vill, men vi har inte tid. Där ligger problemet. Vi har inte tid för evangelisation, inte tid för bön, bibelstudium, gemenskap och brödsbrytelse. Vi är upptagna med viktiga ting och tappar alldeles bort det livsviktiga.
    I Apostlagärningarna följer kapitel på kapitel som skildrar församlingslivet. De går inte att skilja från varandra, utan hänger samman i perspektiv och sammanhang. Det längsta kapitlet i samband med pingsten och andeutgjutelsen handlar inte om tungotal, inte heller om helbrägdagörelse. Det är ett tal av en martyr, som identifierade sig med de heligas kamp för den allraheligaste tron, såsom sanningsvittne.
    Stefanus blev inte martyr efter det att han dödats. Martyriet är ingen enstaka händelse, utan ett helt liv i obruten kamp i fiendeland för den tro som en gång för alla tider är överlämnad åt de heliga. Stefanus tal skildrar Israels historia. Han kände alltså väl till sin egen heliga historia.
    Det är förunderligt hur den helige Ande informerar om urpingstens nyckelpersoner och viktigaste händelser. Andeuppfyllelsens manifestationer och konsekvenser var många, olikartade och omvälvande. Helbrägdagörelse för den lame, näpst mot skrymteriet med dödlig utgång, men det som ägnas det absolut största utrymmet, är trots alla övriga dramatiska händelser ett tal av en diakon, vars kompetens och kvalifikationer för uppdraget var att han hade gott vittnesbörd och var full av ande och vishet. Ett tal med genomslagskraft, som gav den heliga historien nytt ljus och ett nytt perspektiv.
    Varifrån hade denne frimodige förkunnare fått sin kunskap och överbevisande förmåga, vilken akademi hade gjort honom så slagfärdig och träffsäker? Församlingen var hans universitet, den helige Ande rektor och apostlarna var pedagoger.
    Stefanus fostrades i ett lärjungaskap långt bortom denna världens visdom och klyftiga män. Man kan ju fundera på hur detta tal skulle ha utformats om en religionshistoriker, psykolog eller en teolog hade framfört det i den aktuella situationen med dess fientliga miljö. Förmodligen hade då diakonen från Jerusalem aldrig blivit stenad. Himlen hade aldrig öppnats, Människosonen hade aldrig visat sig och någon förbön hade aldrig hörts från ett uppståndelsevittne ...

    Stefanus sa slutligen: ”I hårdnackade män, ni står alltid emot den helige Ande, som edra fäder...” Har du hört en sådan predikan i vår tid? Kunskap ur den heliga historien applicerad på konkreta förhållanden, som var kända och ingen kunde förneka. Vartenda ord gick som en pil in i deras hjärtan. Sanning för sanning nitades fast, eftersom de plockades ut ur den heliga Skrift.
    En styrkedemonstration där svagheten visade sig vara verklig styrka och döden vändes till livets triumf!
    Många kristna i vår tid saknar kunskap och, vad ännu värre är, de saknar inriktning och vilja att få tag på kunskapen. De är historielösa och därigenom rotlösa. Därför är de också mediala och ett mycket lätt byte för vindarnas kast. De är religiösa på ett eller annat sätt, men absolut inte martyrer.
    Vår generations kristna har rockmusik, drama och teater. Men de vet inte hur fäderna i väckelsens eld tog upp kampen mot nöjeslivet och världen. De kämpade med försakelsens ideal mot lyx och nöjen och blev en kulturprotest såsom jordens salt och världens ljus. Varför? Fanatism? Svärmeri? Sekterism? Isolationism? Eller någon annan idiotstämpel?
    Människor i dagens kyrkor representerar ofta överklassen, klädda i sista modet. Titta exempelvis på bilparken utanför kyrkorna, så vet du en del om dem som sitter därinne och tillbeder! Men har de den kunskap som Stefanus demonstrerade att han ägde då han gick igenom den heliga historien? Var hade han skaffat den? Han hade inte fått den vid något seminarium. Den kunskapsmeddelelsen hade han mottagit i församlingen.
    Vi kan hämta kunskap från vår historia. Reformatorerna, pingstpionjärerna, baptisterna. Det går nämna namn från Sverige, Europa, ja, från hela världen, där Herrens martyrer trätt fram. De nämns inte idag, utom en och annan gång när den ekumeniska rörelsen vill slå mynt av deras kamp och ge sken av att dessa martyrer och troshjältar också var deras fäder – och bekransar deras gravar som arvtagare.
    Vi är som Guds folk kallade att vara soldater i ett heligt krig. Vi ska tillbedja, vara tillsammans och upphöja Herren Jesus Kristus. Uppbyggas, men också väcka. Varje kristen bör profetera och gestalta hans budskap på ett sådant sätt att alla i vår omgivning börjar ana och förstå att evangelium inte bara är ett uppbyggelsebudskap, utan en provokation. Varje levande kristen har fått uppgiften att göra det kunnigt, med inspiration, med ett blodat svärd, med frimodighet vidta de åtgärder som behövs, nämligen att dräpa Babels barn.
    Jag angriper inte alkoholister för att jag attackerar spriten. Det är likadant när det gäller katolicismen. Jag attackerar inte katoliker därför att jag attackerar kristenhetens största fiende; det teologiska system som berusar och förför.
    Vi är mer eller mindre berusade av den romerska skökans vin, därför att vi inte har förstått att den guldbägare den i bibeln omtalade skökan håller i sin hand, är Guds eget ord. Det är med Guds ord hon gör sina stora framgångar. Men vi måste göra klart för oss vad denna guldbägare är fylld av. Det kan vi läsa om i det profetiska ordet.
    Det är livsviktigt att skaffa sig högre och större kunskaper än fienden har, och det får vi genom Guds eget Ord och den helige Andes smörjelse. Den som inte har en profetisk skärpa och hög beredskap kommer att uppslukas av detta väl tillrättalagda budskap.

    Katolicismen använder alla medel som den förfogar över för att få oss på fall. Här finns specialister och experter på alla områden - teologi, eskatologi. Budskapet är väl tillrättalagt så att det tjusar alla fem sinnena.
    Stefanus hade kunskap om den heliga historien. Det kunskapen får man inte i något seminarium, för då går det snart fel. Låt oss gå till Andens universitet, avskilja oss och ta tid för det som är livsviktigt. Det finns källor att ösa ur, för Jesus säger att den helige Ande skall taga av mitt och ge åt eder. Han skall leda eder fram till hela sanningen.
    - Låtom oss alltså gå ut till honom ”utanför lägret” och bära hans smälek. Ty vi hava här ingen varaktig stad, utan söka efter den tillkommande staden! n
              Ett klart budskap   
    Undervisning av Morgan Lindroos

    Den senaste tiden har det varit väldigt turbulent i världen – även i Sverige, med terrordådet som hände. Genom detta aktualiserades något som har legat på mitt hjärta en längre tid, och vi läser först ifrån första Korintierbrevet 14:8:
    -Och om en trumpet ger en otydlig signal, vem gör sig då redo till strid? 
    Paulus talar om tungotalet i det här sammanhanget, men det finns flera dimensioner här.
    Vi befinner oss i ett skärpt världsläge. Syrienkonflikten som ständigt nämns i nyhetsrapporteringen, det är meningsutbyten mellan Ryssland och USA; det är terror, främlingsfientlighet, svajande ekonomi – allt möjligt vi läser om varje dag.
    Vi säger ofta, och vi vet, att världen är på väg att nå sitt slut. Allt som sker är tidstecken, och man följer via nyheterna allt som händer. Något jag tänkt mycket på är hur man rapporterar i media, och jag har lagt märke till några saker. Exempelvis efter terrordådet nyligen i Stockholm, då många krönikörer skulle säga sin mening om det hela. Jag har läst uttalanden i några media och vill citera ett par.
    Först Ingvar Persson, Aftonbladet:
    - Men han har inte kunnat rubba det svenska samhällets grundvärderingar. Han har inte kommit åt anständigheten, framtidsplanerna eller vår respekt för varandra.
    En annan var biskop Eva Brunne:
    - Vi viker inte en tum från de värderingar som bygger vår demokrati, öppenhet och allas lika värde.
    Det här är väldigt typiskt för hur man talar i media idag. Man pratar mycket om attackerna på demokratin, öppenheten, toleransen, allas lika värde och kärleken. Det talas så mycket om kärlek. Det får man naturligtvis ha förståelse för.
    Man förstår ju såklart att samhället inte vill vika sig för terrorismen som drabbar oss och sprider skräck. Men frågan är ju om man verkligen har förstått de grundläggande problemen som finns i vårt samhälle. Och vad är det egentligen som den islamiska staten och andra militära och våldsamma grupperingar och ideologier i världen attackerar?
    Etablissemanget vurmar väldigt mycket för ”demokratiska värderingar”, alltså ”öppenhet”, ”tolerans” och ”kärlek”, ”allas lika värde” etc. Man behandlar det som om det är något fast och orubbligt. Man använder dessa termer, som egentligen är väldigt vaga. Det är svårt att greppa vad man egentligen pratar om. Jag tänker speciellt på uttrycket ”demokratiska värderingar”. Det tar man alltid fram. Det tror jag man har gjort när det gäller Maranata också. Vi står tydligen inte för ”demokratiska värderingar”. Då undrar man ju vad det är för något. Jag har försökt hitta någon definition på det här. Det finns vad jag kunde se inte någon riktig definition på demokratiska värden och värderingar. Vad är det för något? Demokrati betyder ju folkstyre. Folkstyres-värden, måste det betyda. Det ska väl vara värden och värderingar baserade på vad folk tycker, eftersom det handlar om att folk ska få välja. Om värdena grundar sig på det folk tycker, alltså människors subjektiva åsikter, då är det problematiskt i allra högsta grad.
    Värden och värderingar handlar om etik och moral som är väldigt viktiga saker. Det är det hela vårt rättssystem grundar sig på. Utan etik och moral skulle människan vara likvärdig med djur, för djuren har ingen moral. Du kan inte arrestera ett lejon och kräva böter eller sätta det i fängelse på moraliska grunder för att ha dödat en zebra. Det vore inte rationellt, det kan nog alla skriva under på.
    Gud har lagt in ett samvete i människan, och det får vi tacka honom för. Men tyvärr är samvetet formbart. Vi människor kan bli, och blir hjärntvättade. Det säger man om oss också; att religionen hjärntvättar oss. Men sanningen är att det finns ingen människa på jorden som inte är hjärntvättad. Vi formas av vår omgivning, oberoende om vi tycker om det eller inte. Vi kan inte säga att vi inte är hjärntvättade – i högre eller mindre grad. Frågan är om vi är hjärntvättade av sanningen eller med något som inte är sant eller rätt. Eftersom samvetet är formbart och människor blir hjärntvättade så är det farligt. Vi vet att människan i sig själv är egoistisk, egocentrisk och ond.
    Därför är ”demokratiska värden och värderingar” egentligen något av det farligaste som någonsin uppfunnits. Eftersom den egoistiska och onda människan ska börja bestämma själv.
    Jag förespråkar inte diktatur eller anarki. Men problemet är att det handlar om andemakter i vår värld och i vårt samhälle.

    Ett av de kraftigaste vapnen som finns för dessa andemakter att operera, är media.
    Alltså tidningar, internet, sociala medier, böcker, filmer, tv-serier, radio – allt är med och formar oss. I större eller mindre grad är de med och bidrar till hjärntvättning.
    Det intressanta är att etablissemangets opinion förändrar sig med folket och folket förändrar sig med opinionen. Resultatet blir att de så kallade ”fasta” demokratiska värdena och värderingarna ändrar sig våldsamt med tiden.
    Det som är rätt och riktigt idag är fel och fullständigt oacceptabelt imorgon. Vi ser hur strömningarna går genom tiden. Medias värden ändrar sig med folkopinionen och folkopinionen med media. Det går som i en cirkel. Då förstår man hur farligt det här är.
    Man kan invända:
    ”Men varför lever vi så gott i Sverige då? Varför har vi inte rena vilda västern här i Sverige då? Demokratin kanske inte är perfekt, men det funkar ju hyfsat i alla fall?” eller ”Men vad är alternativet då? Diktatur? Anarki?”
    För församlingen är det här en ickefråga. Det här politiska samhällsengagemanget är inte vad vi ska hålla på med.
    Eftersom alla människor helst vill leva i fred och göra vad de har lust med så är väl kanske demokrati det bästa alternativet för dem. Men kom inte och säg att det är något fast och orubbligt som består. Och säg inte att bara gott har kommit ut från demokratin.
    Vi vet att det är de kristna värdena som har färgat vårt samhälle och gjort medmänsklighet och kärlek till dygder i samhället idag.
    Demokratin - ”folkstyret” - däremot, har fött fram många vedervärdiga saker, exempelvis aborträtten och dödshjälpen. Man har brutit ner familjeinstitutionen, man lever i självförgudning och egoism. Får människan bestämma själv så vill hon bara sitt eget bästa. Hon vill helst vara sin egen lag. Hon vill inte ha något som säger att det hon gör är fel. Vi ser i samhället att det är populärt att vara egoistisk och egocentrisk. Jag tar hand om mitt eget liv – min karriär och mina intressen. Det är vad livet handlar om. Det är naturligt att det blir så när människan sätter sig själv högre än Gud och blir sin egen lag.
    Något annat som slår mig med alla uttalanden som görs och samhällets ställningstagande i stort i fråga om terrorn och allt annat fruktansvärt som händer i vår värld, är att man ofta säger:
    Vi är starka! Vårt samhälle är starkt! Vi kommer att övervinna det här! Jag är stolt över Sverige idag! Terroristerna kan inte slå ner oss!
    Jag hörde i radio, Stefan Hector, chef vid Nationella Operativa Avdelningen, säga:
    ”Vi kommer aldrig att ändra vår livsstil.”
    Vi ska alltså inte låta något komma hindrande i vägen, så att vi tvingas ändra vår livsstil!
    Ödmjukheten är helt frånvarande. De flesta av Sveriges medborgare inser inte att man borde göra bättring. Man ser inte tidstecknen i vår tid. De är många, men man förstår dem inte. Människorna i vårt land är förblindade; de har förhärdat sina hjärtan, och sätter sin lit till sig själv istället för till Gud.

    I Bibeln har vi ett exempel i Jona kapitel 3, där Jona kommer till Nineve och predikar Herrens ord.
    -HERRENS ord kom för andra gången till Jona. Han sade: ”Stig upp och bege dig till Nineve, den stora staden, och predika för den det budskap jag ger dig.” Då steg Jona upp och begav sig till Nineve enligt HERRENS ord. Men Nineve var en stor stad inför Gud, tre dagsresor lång. Och Jona gick en dagsresa in i staden och predikade och sade: ”Om fyrtio dagar skall Nineve bli ödelagt.” Och folket i Nineve trodde Gud och lyste ut en fasta och klädde sig i säcktyg, från den störste till den minste av dem. När budskapet nådde kungen i Nineve, reste han sig från sin tron och lade av sin mantel och klädde sig i säcktyg och satte sig i aska. Sedan utropade och förkunnade man i Nineve enligt kungens och hans stormäns befallning: ”Ingen människa får smaka något, inte heller något djur, vare sig av nötboskapen eller av småboskapen. De får inte föras i bet eller vattnas. Både människor och djur skall klä sig i säcktyg. Må var och en ropa till Gud av all kraft och vända om från sin onda väg och från den orätt han gör. Vem vet, kanske vänder Gud då om och ångrar sig och vänder sig från sin vredes glöd, så att vi inte förgås.” När Gud såg vad de gjorde, att de vände om från sin onda väg, ångrade han det onda som han hade hotat att göra mot dem, och han gjorde det inte (Jona 3).
    Här har vi ett exempel på hur man borde reagera, när man ser de tydliga tecknen av vad som sker i världen. Man ser varningssignalerna som kommer hela tiden. Jag vet inte riktigt på vilket sätt man borde reagera, men det man märker är att det inte finns någon ödmjukhet hos folket, man vänder sig inte till Gud, man vill inte ha något med honom att göra. Istället börjar man tala emot Gud. Allt av Gud förkastar man – ofta i religionens namn – istället för att vända sig till honom och göra bättring. Jag tror att Gud skulle höra den bönen som han gjorde med Nineve den gången.
    Gud är barmhärtig mot den som vänder om och gör bättring. Sveriges folk är ovilligt att göra det.

    Det är också störande när man ser de här ”kärleksmanifestationerna” som hölls i Stockholm efter terrorattacken. Jag såg en bild på tiotusentals människor samlade till kärleksmanifestation på Sergels torg. Man känner att det är väldigt mäktigt. Man samlas; nu ska vi krama om varandra och komma igenom den här chocken tillsammans. På ett sätt kan det kännas bra. Men det finns en annan aspekt på det här. Jag läste ett uttalande från en journalist jag tyckte var bra sagt:
    Johanna Fränden, Aftonbladet:
    - Olika länder reagerar olika på terror, men över tid ersätts nästan alltid den initiala värmen och öppenheten med något annat. Tonläget växlar upp i debatten, extremistpartier gynnas i opinionen och blickarna på bussen blir vaksamma. Det återstår att se hur bra Sverige står pall för livet efteråt.
    Det ser så fint och rörande ut i början på sådana här manifestationer. Budskapet om att stå tillsammans. Men det är ju ett faktum att Europa blir mer och mer främlingsfientligt för varje dag. Den inställningen kommer inte att mildras genom vad som hänt nu. Det kommer att bli värre. Många varnar för det.
    Det intressanta här är ju att det att vara invandrarkritisk inte är politiskt korrekt i media, men däremot i de som man benämner mindre utbildade samhällsgrupperna; där är det hellre politiskt korrekt att vara invandrarfientlig. De invandrarkritiska partierna vinner mark i hela västvärlden, och man ser hur opinionen förändras.
    Jag tror att främlingsfientligheten allt mera kommer att bli politiskt korrekt. Det har hänt förr, och jag tror att det kan ske igen.

    Det är beklämmande att märka att så många av dem som drivs med i de olika främlingsfientliga och invandrarkritiska strömningarna i vårt land är kristna.
    Man försvarar invandrarfientligheten med t ex bibelställen som Apostlagärningarna 17:26 – ett känt bibelord:
    - Och han har av en enda människa skapat alla människor och folk, för att de skall bo över hela jorden. Han har fastställt bestämda tider och utstakat de gränser inom vilka de skall bo.
    Det använder man för att försvara sin invandrarkritiska inställning. Man säger också att globaliseringen är en stor del i utvecklingen mot det Antikristliga världsväldet som kommer. Dessutom är det inte bra för landets ekonomi, och vi ska bevara de kristna värden vi har, etc.
    Vi har också en annan grupp av kristenheten, som ska vara mera politiskt korrekt, som följer med i etablissemangets opinion; kärlek, öppenhet, demokrati och tolerans, etc. Så de olika strömmarna i samhället har verkligen kommit in i kristenheten också.
    Mycket av det man säger är helt korrekt. Gud har fastställt gränser för nationer av en orsak. Globaliseringen är ett led i utvecklingen mot Antikristligt världsvälde. Och kärleken, alla människors lika värde och öppenheten till människor är grundläggande saker i den kristna tron.
    Problemet är att vi kristna ju inte är kallade till att förbättra världen.
    Jag tror att församlingen och alla individer i församlingen måste vara väldigt vaksamma när det gäller att låta sig involveras och uttala sig med tanke på politiken och det som händer i vår värld. Det är lätt att man hamnar i fällan att börja använda världens tänkesätt och terminologi när det gäller stora frågor om storpolitik, terrorism, krig, främlingsfientlighet etc.

    Mitt budskap idag är inte att förespråka någon form av statsstyre. Nej, den sortens politik är irrelevant för församlingen. Vi behöver inte ha något att göra med det. Som det står i Romarbrevet 13:1-2:
    - Varje människa skall underordna sig den överhet hon har över sig. Ty det finns ingen överhet som inte är av Gud, och den som finns är insatt av honom. Den som sätter sig emot överheten står därför emot vad Gud har bestämt, och de som gör så drar domen över sig själva. 
    Vi förstår här att det är Gud som har kontrollen.
    Församlingen ska inte försvara, stå upp för, eller, minst av allt, dyrka demokratin. När man pratar om demokrati i media, kan det verka det som om man pratar om en gud! Politiker och media pratar om demokrati – som om en avgud! Vi som kristna ska inte stå för detta. Vi ska predika evangelium för världen. Det handlar om att visa på en annan väg, ett annat rike som inte vacklar. Det står fast. Ett annorlunda rike som består av rättfärdighet, frid och glädje i den helige Ande. Det är det riket som kommer övervinna allt ont i världen, för det är evigt.

    Som Guds församling i den här tiden måste vi ha en klar vision. Det är mitt böneämne. Vi måste kunna tyda tiden vi lever i, och vi måste bli det här klara ljuset i mörkret som vi ska vara. Vi kan läsa vad Jesus sa:
    -Ni är världens ljus. Inte kan en stad döljas, som ligger på ett berg. Inte heller tänder man ett ljus och sätter det under skäppan, utan man sätter det på ljushållaren, så att det lyser för alla i huset. Låt på samma sätt ert ljus lysa för människorna, så att de ser era goda gärningar och prisar er Fader i himlen (Matt 5:14-16).
    Ljuset ska lysa klart, inte dunkelt. Vår trumpet ska ge en tydlig signal.
    Församlingsgemenskapen är otroligt viktig, inte bara för oss själva utan också för dem utanför. Vi läser i Johannesevangeliet kapitel 13, där Jesus talar om kärleken:
    - Ett nytt bud ger jag er, att ni skall älska varandra. Så som jag har älskat er skall också ni älska varandra. Om ni har kärlek till varandra, skall alla förstå att ni är mina lärjungar” (v 34-35).
    Vi läser också i Johannes kapitel 17, Jesu översteprästerliga förbön:
    - Jag ber att de alla skall vara ett, och att såsom du, Fader, är i mig och jag i dig, också de skall vara i oss, för att världen skall tro att du har sänt mig. Och den härlighet som du har gett mig har jag gett dem, för att de skall vara ett, liksom vi är ett: jag i dem och du i mig, för att de skall vara fullkomligt förenade till ett. Då skall världen förstå att du har sänt mig och har älskat dem så som du har älskat mig (v 21-23).
    Vi är kallade att vara ett. Därför är den här enheten och kärleken så viktig. Inte bara för oss, den är viktig för världen, så att den får se klart det här ljuset som vi är.
    Församlingens enhet är väldigt viktig.
    De här bibelverserna har ofta blivit väldigt missbrukade. Man använder dem för att ingå gemenskap med sådant man inte borde ha gemenskap med. Det ska inte vara en enhet mellan alla världens kyrkor och läror, det är ett värdsligt tänkesätt. En sådan enhet kanske gör kyrkorna stora i världen, men i anden är redan de verkligt kristna i världen ett. Vi behöver inte någon organisatorisk enhet med olika grupper i världen.
    Nej, den lokala församlingen på en plats ska vara enad i kärlek och i lära. Vi läser vad Paulus skriver i första Korintierbrevet 1:10:
    -I vår Herre Jesu Kristi namn uppmanar jag er, bröder, att ni alla ska vara eniga i det ni säger och inte låta splittring finnas bland er, utan stå enade i samma sinne och samma mening.
    Det är viktigt att inte ha världens tänkesätt!
    Varför skulle man tillåta alla slags främmande läror som kommer in, om det inte vore för att göra församlingen stor och mäktig? Det finns ingen annan orsak. Men vi ska inte vara stora i den här världen. Låt gemenskapen vara liten, det viktiga är att den är byggd på sanningen.
    Vi läser också i Paulus första brev till Timoteus 3:15 att Guds församling är sanningens pelare och grundval här i tiden.
    Till slut några frågor vi måste ställa oss själva som församling:
    Är vi ett klart ljus i världen?
    Ser människor Jesus i vår församling?
    Lever vi det liv vi menar oss leva?
    Som individer måste vi också fråga oss:
    Är vårt liv och vårt tankesätt genomsyrat av Guds ord eller av världen?

    Det finns ett liv värt att leva, det finns en väg som leder rätt och det finns mål som vi kan sikta på och ha blicken på hela tiden.
    Låt oss alla uppriktigt söka Jesus och hans vilja med våra liv. Låt hans vilja vara det högsta i våra liv. Han kan bryta ner de felaktiga tankebyggnaderna som reser sig upp mot kunskapen om honom. Alla dessa influenser som kommer från världen. Ofta märker man kanske inte själv hur det är. Ofta kommer man in på världens sätt att prata och tänka. Det är så viktigt att Jesus får bryta ner de här främmande sakerna. För vi är inte av världen. Hans ljus lyser klarast i världen, och vi ska vara detta ljus. Amen.

              A Simple Gold Nanoprobe Assay for the Identification of Staphylococcus Aureus, Listeria Monocytogenes and Salmonella Enteritidis in Food Specimens   

    In the present study, we developed a gold nanoprobe assay, which relies on the colorimetric differentiation of specific DNA sequences, based on different aggregation profiles. We evaluated the assay on DNA extracted from pathogen cultures and from contaminated food specimens. The targets used were the femA gene for the identification of Staphylococcus aureus, the hly gene of the Listeria monocytogenes listeriolysin and the invA sequence for Salmonella spp. Comparison was performed with the reference assay, as described in the respective ISO guidelines for each pathogen, and a direct PCR amplification and detection. The minimum detection limit of the assay was defined at 123 fg/μL DNA, for all species, lower than PCR detection. Specificity was 100%. Sensitivity was 100%, as compared το the reference method, whereas the sensitivity of PCR was 93.3%. The evaluated assay could be used as a sensitive screening method, which does not require major infrastructure, for the detection and identification of pathogens in food specimens. In addition, it can accommodate detection of multiplespecies,thus allowing multiplexingand expedite turnaround time.

              Comment on False Accusation: Innocent Man Jailed 7 Years by Dave Dunn   
    DISGRACEFUL REPORTING - I have been in the public gallery every day for this trial, with the press attending literally for 30 minutes on a few odd days. They have grossly exaggerated this 'story', failing to write about numerous things, but in particular Luke Williams, clearly a peadophile who was a witness at time when the press were actually in the Court. In the Court when he gave his story and the Jury were told of 3 incidents of rape against young teenage girls, 2 of which had cerebral palsy. These incidents happened after the incident with Beale. Williams was charged but unfortunately and understandably the victims were not strong enough to handle attending Court and no wonder after the way this case has been reported. There has not been 15 rapists, but groups of males watching. There is even DNA evidence for 2 incidents. There was a huge Mumsnet survey (2012) with 1,500 responses from women who had been raped, with 23% stating they had been raped 4 or more times. 23%. Not as rare as it would be believed. In this sick world we live in today rape does not appear to be for many men, as disgusting as it really is. Williams has a number of charges and allegations against him, as discussed in open Court with him and which the press have ignored. Sicko's like him should be locked up, but with Police knowing all they know about him, they still take his word over his victim. Disgraceful Police actions and disgraceful reporting.
              Nieuwsbrief-artikelen - BRAIN, HBP en hoofdpijn   
    Soms zijn de wetenschappelijke uitdagingen zo groot en kostbaar dat een gezamenlijke inspanning noodzakelijk is. Dan komt big science om de hoek kijken. Goede voorbeelden van dergelijke grote wetenschappelijke en technologische ondernemingen in het verleden zijn het Apollo-programma (1961-1972)  om een mens op de maan te laten landen en het menselijk-genoom-project (1990-2003) om de structuur van het menselijke DNA op te helderen. In de categorie van big science vallen ook de enkele jaren geleden uit de grond gestampte projecten die moeten uitvogelen hoe de hersenen zijn samengesteld en hoe zij functioneren.
    Het is boeiend te zien hoe bij het hersenonderzoek de big science aanpak in de Verenigde Staten en in Europa verschilt. In de VS kondigde president Obama in april 2013 het ambitieuze NIH BRAIN Initiative aan. NIH en BRAIN staan voor National Institutes of Health en Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies. Een jaar lang overlegde een werkgroep intensief met de tien instituten en onderzoekscentra van de NIH. De wetenschappers zelf formuleerden de doelstellingen in het document BRAIN 2025: A Scientific Vision. BRAIN richt zich op het ontwikkelen en toepassen van innovatieve technologieën voor het maken van een dynamisch beeld van de hersenen in actie. Dat gebeurt door het bieden van de noodzakelijke kennisbank aan onderzoekers die op zoek zijn naar nieuwe methoden voor behandeling, genezing en zelfs het voorkomen van hersenafwijkingen. De begroting voor dertien jaar is 4,5 miljard dollar. Voor 2017 is waarschijnlijk 195 miljoen dollar beschikbaar. BRAIN is in 2014 gestart, loopt naar tevredenheid en kenmerkt zich door grote transparantie.
    Hoe anders is het in Europa dat uiteraard niet kon achterblijven. De Europese Unie doet aan big science via de zogenaamde Flagship Projects. In begin 2013 koos de Europese Unie als een van de zes Flagship Projects het HBP, het Human Brain Project. De start van het HBP was een soort veredelde onemanshow waarbij alles draaide om één wetenschapper, de in Zuid-Afrika geboren en in Zwitserland wonende Israëliër Henry Markram (54 jaar). Hij werd in 1998 benoemd tot senior scientist aan het prestigieuze Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. In het begin van deze eeuw was Markram een goed bekend staande wetenschapper. Zijn bevlogenheid en drang om de 86 miljard neuronen en 100 triljoen synapsen in een wiskundig model te stoppen en op een supercomputer te simuleren, werden hem ingegeven door het feit dat zijn zoon autistisch is. Dat staat te lezen in het artikel ‘Why the Human Brain Project went wrong – and how to fix it’ dat Scientific Americain in oktober 2015 publiceerde.
    Tijdens zijn TED talk ‘A brain in a supercomputer’ in 2009 beweerde Markram dat binnen tien jaar de simulatie van het volledige brein op een supercomputer mogelijk was. Hij sloot zelfs niet uit dat het dan mogelijk moest zijn bewustzijn te simuleren. Hij claimde ook dat een dergelijke wiskundig hersenmodel fundamentele doorbraken zou opleveren zoals op simulatie gebaseerde ontdekkingen van geneesmiddelen, een beter begrip van afwijkingen zoals Alzheimer en de vervanging van bepaalde vormen van dierenexperimenten. Geen wonder dat, ondanks het scepticisme van veel wetenschappers over de wel erg hoge verwachtingen, de bureaucraten van de Europese Unie onder de indruk waren. Wie wil er geen einde aan dierproeven en Alzheimer? In 2013 zegden zij Markram ruim een miljard euro toe om in tien jaar tijd zijn doelen te bereiken. Het Human Brain Project was geboren.
    Daarna ging het mis. Een boeiend en vooral kritisch verslag van wat waar waarom mis ging staat in het artikel ‘The laborious delivery of Markram’s brainchild’ van Leonid Schneider op zijn website For better science. Schneider is een oud biomedisch wetenschapper die nu -zoals hijzelf stelt - als  onafhankelijk wetenschapsjournalist strijdt voor reproduceerbaarheid, oprechtheid en rechtvaardigheid in wetenschappelijk onderzoek. Schneider zet Markram weg als een megalomane narcist die politici, bureaucraten en helaas ook wetenschapsjournalisten in Europa met een gebrek aan kennis van levenswetenschappen wist te verleiden met onwetenschappelijke science fictionachtige vergezichten. Markram, die tegenwoordig hoogleraar is aan de École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), bestuurde HBP als een absoluut vorst. Hij controleerde alle geldstromen die vooral uitkwamen bij het onderzoek van hemzelf en zijn partners. Op een gegeven moment werd het de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap te gortig. In 2014 schreven 800 wetenschappers een ‘Open message to the Europeaan Comission concerning te Human Brain Project’. De bezorgde neurowetenschappers vroegen de Europese Commissie het HBP te herzien en pleitten voor de vernieuwing van zowel de wetenschappelijke als de bestuurlijke aanpak. Omdat men bang was dat de EC zou beslissen de geldkraan voor het HBP dicht te draaien zou het in de praktijk moeten gaan om het verleggen van de geldstromen.
    Dit jaar is het HBP gereviseerd. De coördinatie is nog wel in handen van het EPFL, maar Markram is nog ‘slechts’ verantwoordelijk voor een van de twaalf deelprojecten. Er zijn nu een Stakeholder Board met onder andere Rob Heinsbroek van het NWO, een Science and Infrastructure Board en een Directorate. De financiering is geregeld via het Framework Partnership Agreement. De tweede fase van twee jaar is op 1 april jl. begonnen en een week geleden is het budget van 89 miljoen euro goedgekeurd. De nieuwe aanpak lijkt meer op de wijze waarop de Amerikaanse tegenhanger BRAIN is georganiseerd. Er wordt zelfs voorzichtig gepraat over samenwerking tussen BRAIN en HBP 2.0. Het is te hopen dat de EC iets van het echec van de valse start van het HBP heeft geleerd en in de toekomst beter in staat zal zijn big science projecten in goede banen te leiden.
              Nieuwsbrief-artikelen - Neo versus neo   
    Neo-Darwinisten en Neo-Lamarckianen vechten een robbertje in de arena van de epigenetica.
    Op 1 augustus 1744 werd Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck geboren. Deze Franse natuuronderzoeker was de eerste die de term biologie gebruikte en die veel verstand had van ongewervelde dieren. Hij werd beroemd en berucht omdat hij van mening was dat als een organisme tijdens het leven verandert om zich aan de omgeving aan te passen, deze wijzigingen worden overgedragen op het nageslacht. De giraffe heeft een lange nek omdat hij die generatie na generatie moet rekken en strekken om frisse groene blaadjes uit hoge bomen te kunnen verorberen. In 1809 publiceerde hij zijn evolutietheorie in Philosofie Zoologique waarin hij stelde dat de evolutie rechtlijnig, doelgericht en opklimmend is. Het organisme heeft volgens Lamarck een eigen plan, is creatief en inventief. Deze theorie heet het Lamarckisme, de overerfelijkheid van verkregen eigenschappen.
    Over zijn theorie ontstond al snel een hoop discussie. Ook Charles Darwin moest er niets van weten. In zijn geheime aantekeningen die hij vanaf 1837 maakte, serveerde Darwin Lamarcks hypothese af. Darwin vond een evolutie van soorten die zich als een boom vertakt, logischer dan Lamarcks idee van lineaire evolutie. In zo'n boom is niet langer sprake van "hogere" en "lagere" levensvormen, zoals bij Lamarcks lineaire evolutie het geval is. Toen Darwin in 1859 (eindelijk) zijn On the Origin of Species publiceerde over de evolutie op basis van natuurlijke selectie, was het snel gedaan met het Lamarckisme. Of toch niet helemaal?
    In een van mijn eerdere columns  schreef ik al over de epigenetica, de relatief jonge tak van wetenschap die bestudeert hoe gen-regulerende informatie die niet in DNA-sequenties wordt uitgedrukt, toch van de ene generatie cellen of organismen op de andere wordt overgedragen. Het wordt steeds duidelijker dat interactie tussen DNA-ketens, waaronder ook de zogenaamde junk DNA, en de omgeving namelijk de cel, het organisme en de buitenwereld, grote invloed hebben hoe de DNA-informatie wordt vertaald in vaardigheden en gedrag. Het evolutionaire belang van de mechanismen die het gen tot expressie brengen zou wel eens groter kunnen zijn dan eerder werd aangenomen. Het wetenschappelijke terrein van de epigenetica is spannend, behoorlijk onontgonnen en vormt derhalve een uitermate geschikte arena om oude vetes af te stoffen. Want er zijn neo-Lamarckianen. Aan het einde van de negentiende eeuw ontstond er in Frankrijk en de Verenigde Staten een neo-Lamarckistische school en nog steeds zijn er aanhangers, zoals Edward Steele die in 1998 in zijn boek Lamarck’s Signature een neo-Lamarckistisch standpunt inneemt.
    Deze neo-Lamarckianen nemen het vooral op tegen de neo-Darwinisten die aanhangers zijn van de ideeën die in 1976 tot volle bloei zijn gebracht in het schitterende boek The Selfish Gene van Engelse evolutiebioloog en publicist Richard Dawkins. Neo-Darwinisten zijn van mening dat alles in het leven draait om het voortleven van het gen. Wij dieren zijn er uitsluitend voor om onze genen voort te laten bestaan en wij zijn dan ook niets meer dan een overlevingsmachine die na bewezen diensten wordt afgedankt. In Dawkins eigen woorden: “We are robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes”. Na dit boek heeft Dawkins nog veel andere boeiende boeken geschreven zoals The Blind Watchmaker (1987) en The God Delusion (2006). Vooral met dat laatste boek heeft Dawkins zich geprofileerd als erkend atheïst en bestrijder van religie als het grote kwaad omdat godsdiensten vaak de werkelijkheid en de waarheid misvormen of ontkennen en mensen ertoe aanzetten medemensen verschrikkelijke dingen aan te doen in naam van hun feilloze god. Deze ‘kruistocht’ tegen religie wordt Dawkins in religieuze kringen niet in dank afgenomen. Het afgelopen decennium treedt hij regelmatig publiekelijk in het strijdperk met gelovigen, maar ook pseudowetenschappers als Deepak Chopra, auteur van veel boeken waaronder het in 2015 verschenen Super Genes: Unlock the Astonishing Power of Your DNA for Optimum Health and Well-Being. Geen wonder dat Dawkins niets moet weten van mensen die de ontwikkelingen van epigenetica aangrijpen om aan de fundamenten van de evolutietheorie te morrelen en die suggereren dat de epigenetica overtuigende argumenten aanvoert voor de Lamarckiaanse hypothese of, misschien nog ‘erger’, het gedachtegoed van intelligent ontwerp of zelfs creationisme.
    Al degenen die maar niet aan het idee kunnen wennen dat de evolutie puur is gebaseerd op random mutaties en aanpassing aan de omgeving en dat er dus geen vooropgezet plan of een schepping van god is, hopen dat epigenetica hun gelijk zal bewijzen. Onder hen is de Israëlische genetica en filosofe Eva Jablonka. Samen met Marion Lamb schreef zij in 2008 het artikel Soft inheritance: Challenging the Modern Synthesis dat gaat over een Lamarckiaans epigenetisch controlesysteem. De Duitse neurobioloog en vooral wetenschapsjournalist Peter Spork schrijft in zijn boek ‘De Verborgen Code: Hoe wij ons DNA sturen’ dat over de ontwikkelingen rond epigenetica gaat, dat Jablonka de stelling verdedigt dat de verborgen code (het epigenoom) rechtstreeks de evolutie beïnvloedt.
    Mensen als Dawkins rillen van dit soort stellingen. De discussies over zulke kwesties op bijvoorbeeld twitter zijn blaartrekkend. De beruchte anonieme internetbagger druipt van het scherm. De rauwe emoties lopen hoog op. Een voorbeeld.
    Op 2 mei jl. schreef de bekende en gewaardeerde wetenschapsjournalist Siddhartha Mukherjee in The New Yorker het artikel Same but different dat de ondertitel heeft How epigenetics can blur the line between nature and nurture. Vanuit de wetenschappelijke wereld wordt dat artikel enorm bekritiseerd. Zo reageert Richard Mann, hoogleraar in de biochemie en moleculaire biofysica, dat het echt verdrietig en beschamend is dat zoiets afschuwelijks in een gerespecteerd tijdschrift verschijnt en nog wel door een gerespecteerd schrijver. De kritiek op het artikel van Mukherjee wordt samengevat door Jerry Coyne op zijn website Why evolution is true met zijn bijdrage The New Yorker screws up big time with science: researchers criticize the Mukherjee piece on epigenetics. Voor Dawkins is deze bijdrage van Coyne een goede reden om op 5 mei een tweet te versturen waarin hij stelt dat het de hoogste tijd is dat the 15 minutes of undeserved fame for “epigenetics” aan een verlaat einde komt. En dan is de boot aan. Twitteraars verwijten Dawkins op niet mis te verstane wijze zich onwetenschappelijk te verzetten tegen de aanspraken die enkele onderzoekers op basis van epigenetica maken. Dawkins zou zich stijfkoppig verweren tegen de aanvallen op ‘zijn’ gen-centrische paradigma van het zelfzuchtige gen.
    In het Aeon Magazine van december 2013 staat het essay Die, selfish gene, die van David Dobbs. Daarin vraagt hij zich af of wij nu niet worden verblind door het feit dat wij dankzij de bestaande metafoor van het egoïstische gen al tientallen jaren met nieuwe helderheid naar de evolutie kijken. Ik vind Dobbs’ essay verhelderend omdat het alles netjes op een rijtje zet, zonder dat het tot een keiharde conclusie komt. Ook het vervolgessay Dead or Alive? waarin vier experts hun licht laten schijnen op de vraag Is it time to kill the idea of the ‘Selfish Gene’? levert boeiende bijdragen aan de discussie. De toenemende wetenschappelijke kennis over de complexe manier waarop het gen tot expressie komt, is voor enkele onderzoekers zoals Mary Jane West-Eberhard van het Smithsonian Tropical Research Intitute in Panama, aanleiding  te veronderstellen dat het gen wel eens geen leidende rol, maar een  volgende rol in de evolutie zou kunnen spelen. Dawkins is het daar niet mee eens. Hij zegt in het essay van Dobbs dat het bij het gen-centrisch model allemaal draait om het gen als de eenheid in de hiërarchie van het leven dat gekozen is. Alles draait om het gen.
    Als geïnteresseerde leek die gewoon een leuke column over de discussie rond epigenetica wil schrijven, wordt het mij niet makkelijk gemaakt. De heren en dames genetici slaan elkaar flink om de oren en ik word geacht daarvan een beetje chocola te maken. Het is daarom goed te beseffen dat de epigenetica nog in de kinderschoenen staat en dat het nog veel te vroeg is om nu al vergaande uitspraken te doen over de al dan niet leidende rol in de evolutie van het genoom of het epigenoom. Mijn, in dit geval wel zeer bescheiden, voorlopige conclusie is dat de epigenetica tot op heden heeft laten zien dat de manier waarop informatie over eigenschappen wordt overgedragen aanzienlijk ingewikkelder is dan tot nu werd gedacht, maar dat het gen nog steeds aan het stuur zit. Het is volgens mij op dit moment onmogelijk de neo-Lamarckianen als winnaar aan te wijzen in hun strijd tegen de neo-Darwinisten.
              En rolig händelse från dagen    

    Hej finisar!

    Idag har vi legat i poolen hela dagen med Fanny, mamma och Sven! Har bara njutit av dagen och inte fotat. Tänkte att ni blir trötta på alla bad-bilder jag spamat senaste dagarna, haha. Borde kanske fotat för va så mysigt mamma kom med drinkar till oss i blåa champagneglas och allt.

    Sedan har vi varit hos mormor och morfar och de hade köpt en ny ros. Jag har bog ärvt mitt blom intresse från morfar. Doftade jättegott med! Sedan blev vi bjudna på glass och jordgubbar. Marcus som är jordgubbsexpert sa att det car sommarens godaste hittills. Var super mysigt och så briska till det! ( alkoholfri)

    Lite roligt var att mormor skulle lägga upp en bild på oss på insta och morfar skulle visa Marcus bilder i sin mobil och vi "ungdomar" satt och åt glass, haha. Var så kul att fånga det på bild. Den äldre generationen är de som har telefonerna uppe, haha.

    Nu är Marcus på gymmet och jag bloggar lite och vilar.

    Puss och kram!

    7 Superfood Lattes That Will Make You Quit Coffee

    Trouble waking up? Your latte might not be weird enough. Enter: superfood lattes made from algae, medicinal mushrooms and collagen — each promising a nontraditional boost of, well, whatever you want.

    Don't get us wrong, we love coffee as much as the next person (it’s a superfood in its own right, after all!). But sometimes caffeine isn’t all that you need. Maybe it’s a hot cup of antioxidant-rich goji berry cocoa, or a tummy-taming turmeric brew. Here, we rounded up seven super-powered latte recipes from some of our favorite bloggers (including five vegan lattes!).

    One word of caution: Many of these drinks get their froth from whipping together in a blender. Be sure to only use a blender with an open top (unlike a Nutribullet or Magic Bullet) so that heat can escape and your blender doesn't crack from the high temperature.

    1. Raw Cacao and Goji Berry Superfood Latte

    The plain ol' cup of hot cocoa gets a serious nutrition upgrade with this recipe from The First Mess. For one, it's sweetened with a date opposed to processed sugar. It is also made with cacao, which is made from raw pressed beans (cocoa powder is roasted). Similar compounds tested by researchers have been shown to potentially reduce the risk of chronic diseases, like heart disease and stroke, and may prove to be a good energy source for pregnant women, who need to watch their caffeine intake. Using almond or coconut milk in this recipe also makes it vegan-friendly. Photo and recipe: Laura Wright / The First Mess

    2. Bulletproof Gingerbread Latte

    If you’re a fan of holiday flavors, this heartwarming latte is the perfect treat. This recipe uses dandelion tea, which has a very similar roasted taste to coffee. It gets a boost with collagen for healthy skin, hair and nails. Then, give it the bulletproof treatment: a tablespoon of grass-fed, unsalted butter for a dose of healthy fats. And for sweetness: raw honey and blackstrap molasses. According to Wellness Mama, molasses is, "One of the healthiest sweeteners available that is relatively low in sugar and high in B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, copper and one of the few non-animal sources of iron."

    If avocado had a sister, it would be the exotic, yellow-orange Peruvian fruit, lucuma. Lucuma has a mild, sweet flavor with hints of maple and sweet potato. Lucuma is newer to the superfood scene, but it is rich in beta carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. This recipe also uses hemp seed powder and cacao powder, which imparts a rich, velvety flavor. Animal studies have found hemp seeds may contribute to heart health and reduce blood pressurePhoto: @lucumamagazine

    5. Vanilla Coconut Matcha Tea Latte

    Green tea lattes are no newbie to coffee shop menus, but this vegan alternative from Peaceful Dumpling features unsweetened coconut and soy milk. Matcha is much more potent than green tea because the entire leaf is consumed in powder form instead of steeped and removed before consuming, like the traditional tea. The upside: a whole lot of antioxidants. Matcha is an excellent source of catechins, particularly EGCg, which provides cancer-fighting properties. Catechins are also shown to help fight free radicals from pollution, UV rays and chemicals. Photo and recipe: Mary Hood Luttrell / Peaceful Dumpling

    Mushrooms might sound more at-home in your dinner than your drink, but hear us out on this one. Medicinal mushrooms, which are adaptogens, have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years and are celebrated for their anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Don't worry, you won't be chopping or sautéing any mushrooms, though. You can get a wide variety of mushrooms in powder form, which you simply stir into milk along with ingredients like sweetener and coconut oil.

    So tell us: Are you sold on the health benefits of superfood lattes, or will you be sticking with plain old coffee?
