          Apple tree disease identification help   

 Two of our 4 year apple trees have developed worrying signs of disease.

Kidds orange - this tree had a branch which looked cankerous last year, and this was removed. The tree split this summer with the weight of apples and now an area of  the bark just above the split seems blistered and discoloured.

The other tree is Epicure, and has developed a series of vertical splits in the bark near the ground. 

 

Both trees look otherwise healthy and bore a lot of apples this year.

Any help appreciated

Todo el mundo es un sueño!
 
Hace algunos años mientras estaba en Raipur, caí muy enfermo de repente. La temperatura alta no permitió que me levante de la cama en absoluto. Fue entonces cuando Swami apareció en mi sueño, se materializó un anillo de diamante verde y lo puso en el dedo. Al igual que todos los sueños de Swami esto también fue muy refrescante y energizante. El resultado fue que la fiebre desapareció por la mañana y pude presentarme a él en la sala de Puja. Durante la meditación de la mañana, le pregunté a Swami, "Ayer por la noche que vino en mi sueño y me dio un anillo y me sentí muy feliz'. Sonrió y dijo: 'Sí, lo que sucedió en ese sueño, esto está sucediendo en este sueño' . 

"este sueño!" yo estaba desconcertado. 

"Oh, sí, esto también es un sueño". 

"Entonces, ¿por qué no damos cuenta de que, ¿por qué pensamos que es real?", pregunté. 

lo que me ha dicho a partir de entonces es uno de las explicaciones más reveladores sobre los estados de existencia se ha mencionado en las escrituras que son Jagrita (Despierto), Swapna (sueño), Sushupti (sueño profundo) y Turiya (Conciencia). 

Swami dijo: "La verdad es que todo esto es un sueño que se desvanecerá en el tiempo sino la conciencia por sí solo es permanente. Al igual que en el sueño no se dio cuenta de que era un sueño hasta que se despertó, así mismo en esta vigilia-sueño también son incapaces de darse cuenta de su naturaleza irreal. Sólo cuando se despierte de este sueño que usted sabe cuál es la realidad " 

'Pero Swami', argumenté, 'Este sueño parece tan real, tan convincente'. 

" Eso es cierto, el más profundo de los detalles en el sueño más convincentemente reales que parece ser. Cuanto más sus sentidos se ocupan en este sueño más real que parece ser. Por lo tanto los sabios, retiraron sus sentidos de los objetos de los sentidos y acatadas en su verdadero yo todo el tiempo por lo que no consiguen falsamente convencidos de su naturaleza irreal". 

Eso hizo mucho sentido para mí, como he observado que esos sueños donde los detalles eran más fino, me sentí más involucrados y creía que eso es todo era real hasta que sonó la alarma y me despertó aliviado de que el tigre que me perseguía era, después de todo en el sueño! 

"Aye! Soy esa alarma para despertarse de este sueño", reveló con una sonrisa juguetona.

VISITA DIVINA - SAN JOSE - 17 de junio 2017 
 

Los jóvenes de muchos estados de América del Norte había llegado la noche anterior, y estaban ocupados con los preparativos para el Encuentro de la Juventud en la mañana. Cerca de 150 adultos jóvenes se reunieron en el templo Balaji situada en San José. Swami y su séquito llegaron al lugar a las 10 am 

Swami primera mandó  hermano Bobby Patel  hablar de 'Sai Ashraya', que ha sido autorizada por el Estado de California. Dos niños se han sacado de las calles de forma permanente, y ahora están en el camino para la recuperación, pasando por la atención terapéutica. Swami ha dado a este proyecto para los jóvenes Sai de América, y el hermano de Bobby instó a todos los jóvenes a participar y ser parte de este viaje de auto-transformación. A partir de entonces, el hermano Sumeet Tappoo dirigida a los jóvenes hablar de los  Seva  proyectos en Fiji, y subrayó la necesidad de que todos los jóvenes a ser parte de la misión continua de Swami. 

Dos adultos jóvenes que han sido parte de 'Sai Ashraya' y 'Un mundo, un Sai', ambos hablaron de las iniciativas para la juventud. Un mundo, una Sai, es un esfuerzo para llevar a todos los jóvenes de todo el mundo en una sola plataforma, donde pueden intercambiar ideas, información e historias de transformación. La visión de Swami es que una vez que la juventud de todo el mundo están en esta plataforma que se sienten conectados y unidos ...

VISITA DIVINA - SAN JOSE - 18 de junio 2017 
 

Fue una mañana muy ocupada, como la familia Patel prepara para un Satsang  en su residencia. Sentimentales  bhajans  y canciones devocionales por el hermano Sumeet Tappoo elevan la energía divina en la habitación. Swami entonces mandó  Sri BN Narasimha Murthy  para hacer frente a la reunión íntima, y habló de las distintas funciones Swami adorna incluyendo la de la cabeza de una familia de devotos en todo el mundo, además de ser el creador. Él narró un par de casos para llevar a casa este tema. 

Swami continuó sobre el mismo tema y dijo: "La familia que reza unida, permanece unida. Familia no ora, no puede mantenerse. Si Dios se convierte en el hilo conductor de esta guirnalda de miembros de la familia, entonces la guirnalda estarán juntos. Si no hay hilo, a continuación, las flores se vendrá abajo. del mismo modo, la presencia de Dios en las vidas de los miembros de la familia es como el hilo de la guirnalda. mantiene todas las hermosas flores juntos y aumenta la belleza de esa guirnalda, que vale la pena ofrecer a Dios."

Swami dijo que en este punto en el tiempo en las familias mundo están rompiendo causa del egoísmo individual. Sociedades están rompiendo causa del egoísmo de las familias, la nación se está rompiendo, porque el egoísmo de la sociedad, y el mundo se está rompiendo ...

VISITA DIVINA - SAN JOSE - 19 junio 2017 
 

Fue un día histórico para el equipo del Centro para el Desarrollo Humano que había estado trabajando muy duro para la visita de Bhagavan a América del Norte, para el  Bhoomi Puja . Sacerdote observado desde Madrás  Sri Sathasivom  había llegado al sitio en las primeras horas de la mañana, y comenzó los rituales. El terreno, de unos 17 acres está situado en Los Gatos Hills, y situado en el regazo de la madre naturaleza. El Centro para el Desarrollo Humano servirá como un centro para todas las personas con ideas afines, cuyo objetivo principal será la de servir a la comunidad en todas las formas posibles.

Swami llegó con su comitiva en el lugar, donde más de 60 devotos ya habían montado. El  Navagraha Homa  se realizó en la presencia divina, y como pareja de Shiva  Bhajans  estaban siendo cantada por Brother Sumeet Tappoo, Bhagavan dio un Shivalingam blanco al cura. El cura de alegría abrió el camino a una zona, donde los ladrillos iban a ser establecido por los devotos. Swami dio instrucciones al Shivalingam para ser colocado en el útero de la madre tierra. Se excavó un agujero en la tierra y el lingam se colocó, y Swami declaró que esto va a proteger a toda la tierra y su entorno. También dijo que esto simboliza la unión de Shiva y Shakti,  Prakriti y Purusha , que dará a luz a este Centro que servir a la humanidad. Qué momento era ser testigo de esto! La energía era absolutamente increíble, y Swami dijo que todos los dioses estaban presentes, pero la presencia del Señor Shiva era tan fuerte y Swami declaró que el Señor Shiva fue el ' Adidevta ', la deidad que preside, del Desarrollo. 

A partir de entonces, Swami procedió a una casa que preexistía cuando el terreno Centre ...

VISITA DIVINA - SANTA ROSA - 20 de junio 2017 
 

1- Esta imagem correu o mundo. Não foi retocada nem é uma manipulação digital. A forma de coração desta clareira não foi desenhada pelo Homem, mas é antes o resultado de um processo natural de eliminação da vegetação devido à salinidade da água que ocorre nesta região. Tornou-se uma das fotografias mais famosas de Yann Arthus-Bertrand e serviu de símbolo ao seu projecto "A Terra vista do Céu". Mas o nosso planeta possui outros corações naturais... 2- Não muito longe da Nova Caledónia podemos encontrar outra forma de coração: a ilha de Tavarua, situada no arquipélago das Fiji. É um local paradisíaco rodeado por um recife de coral explorado para fins turísticos. 3- Na Patagônia, mais precisamente no Lago Gutierrez, existe mais uma pequena ilha com forma de coração. 4- Do outro lado do mundo, na Croácia, a ilha de Galesnjak possui a mesma forma.

5- Junto à Austrália, na Grande Barreira de Coral, é também possível observar um recife em forma de coração. Apenas se consegue visualizar do céu. 6- No Pico de Chembra, em Kerala, na Índia, situado a 2100 m de altitude, existe um pequeno lago natural que é muito procurado pelos turistas devido à sua forma peculiar: um coração. 7- Ainda mais duas coincidências. Primeiro um pequeno bosque situado no norte de Espanha, na Cantábria. Só adquire a forma de coração quando visualizado desta posição. 8- Depois uma Zona pantanosa no parque natural de Guantu, em Taiwan.

          A new species of iguana Brachylophus Cuvier 1829 (Sauria: Iguania: Iguanidae) from Gau Island, Fiji Islands   

The south Pacific iguanas (Brachylophus) currently have three recognized living species in Fiji.  Recent surveys have uncovered more specific variation (morphological and genetic) within the genus and have better defined the geographic ranges of the named species.  One of these recent discoveries is a strikingly different iguana from all other island populations in Fiji which is restricted to Gau Island of the Lomaiviti Province.  Gau is the fifth largest island in Fiji and maintains excellent upland forests in the higher elevations.  We describe this population from Gau Island as a new species, Brachylophus gau sp. nov., in recognition of its type locality.

Kolere : "Lis la suite Alik, t’as raté la moitié" Pas très "fair-play", Kolere, ta technique qui consiste à balancer un commentaire, puis à attendre les premières réponses et à en tenir compte pour le modifier. Un superbe exemple de duplicité féminine. Dorénavant, j'attendrai que le délai de modification (une heure) soit écoulé pour te répondre, et j'invite les honorables contributeurs à s'inspirer de ma décision (irrévocable, comme de bien entendu). Tu pourrais, comme je le fais moi-même, signaler et dater les ajouts importants qui enrichissent ton commentaire primitif. J'ai parfois l'impression que tu survoles (grâce à Wikipedia ?) nombre des sujets que tu abordes. "la ‘dictature’ des Iles Fidji" Je reconnais volontiers que le commodore n'a pas l'hypocrisie de la jouer grand démocrate. Mais n'est-ce pas le cas un peu partout, avec un nuage de fumée plus ou moins épais ? Et à Viti Levu, un chancre type Saint Louis serait vite éradiqué. "les Fidji ... ont la particularité de n’avoir jamais été colonisées comme le reste des colonies britanniques" Ah bon. Je ne voudrais pas infliger à l'ensemble des lecteurs un cours original sur l'histoire coloniale britannique, néanmoins je souhaite rappeler quelques points : - les conquêtes britanniques se sont faites en plusieurs vagues et surtout dans plusieurs zones climatiques, plus ou moins peuplées. - dans les zones tempérées peu peuplées, implantation de colons agricoles et submersion des autochtones (Amérique du nord, Australie), prise en main complète de l'administration, souvent développement minier ensuite. - dans les zones tempérées peuplées, implantation de colons agricoles, et prise en main de l'administration, en respectant les groupes constitués déjà en place après quelques frictions (Afrique du Sud, Rhodésie, Nouvelle Zélande) et en laissant une place aux hiérarchies traditionnelles. - dans la zone intertropicale, aux altitudes faibles et avec des populations nombreuses (Afrique, Inde, Malaisie, etc.), implantation d'un système colonial d'exploitation avec une administration veillant à l'ordre et à la liberté d'entreprise, et des sociétés prenant en main le commerce, l'industrie, et les cultures industrielles; dans ce dernier cas, la gestion de la vie locale était laissée aux chefs coutumiers. C'est à ce dernier type d'administration coloniale (il y en a probablement d'autres, comme Pitcairn par exemple), que personnellement je rattacherais Fidji. "ce sont les Indiens qui ont changé les choses, qui ont été les colonisateurs aux Fidji, pas les Brits" Ben voyons, un peu comme les Africains aux Antilles ? A Fiji, qui a, d'une façon ou d'une autre, pris possession des terres agricoles (notamment de la zone sucrière de Lautoka, à Viti Levu), qui a créé les grand domaines sucriers, qui a fait venir comme main-d'oeuvre les Indiens pour ces plantations, sinon des sociétés britanniques qui ne fournissaient que les cadres, comme dans toutes leurs colonies à climat chaud. Et quand le vent de l'histoire politique et aussi économique a tourné, ils se sont joyeusement débarrassé du fardeau, tout en conservant, y compris par le biais de filiales australiennes (Burns Philp par exemple), quelques secteurs intéressants. Et la gestion du problème ethnique a été laissée aux habitants, en toute indépendance. Curieusement on retrouve certains traits typiquement britanniques sur le drapeau fidjien (pour un pays qui n'a "jamais été colonisé". - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/ba/Flag_of_Fiji.svg Quant aux dominions "blancs", il y avait belle lurette qu'ils étaient indépendants, dans une certaine interdépendance (au fait la sortie de la Grande Bretagne de l'Europe devrait relancer les exportations ovines de la NZ). "pour la NC, c’est trop tard, c’est la France et l’on doit créer ..." C'est ton opinion et je la respecte, mais d'autres, dont John_Lax, pensent différemment, et d'un point de vue strictement légaliste, à ce jour, plusieurs options sont possibles.

          Vegan Pop Up Philly Celebrates One Year (Happy Birthday Y'all)   
Happy 1st birthday Philly Vegan Pop Up Flea Market and many, many more.
 Last Saturday, this conversation took place.
"Hey! Are you going to that vegan pop up down the street?"
"Of course!" I excitedly answered.
"I saw the sign and said, 'I know who's going down there for lunch.'"
Laughter ensued. I skipped off for my break, hungry and anxious, delighted to be near the latest Philly Vegan Popup Flea Market. I had been praying that they would show up at Friend's Center. I love Tattooed Mom's, but it's further down the road from my workplace.

I visited Barb's Gone Pie booth, admiring the sweets galore.

Candies, breads, pies....

Freakin' Vegan scooping out macaroni and cheese for ravenous guests.

A Freakin' Vegan Spinach and "ricotta" empanada and Obsidian Juice beet juice (excellent flavor blend).

The filling is good. I need more of that ricotta in my life and quite curious as to the ingredients.

In the breakroom, scrumptious "just for me" Gone Pie goodies all laid out in their glorious fair trade chocolate (and not chocolate) beauty: peanut butter caramel rice crispy treat (with twinkling, iridescent green sprinkles), salted peanut butter caramel cup, vanilla macaroon, and a broughnie (brownie baked in a donut pan). So delicious. FYI: I did eat these on separate occasions. Imagine the extreme sugar high if I had eaten all at once.

My love for Newman's Boulangerie croissants grew stronger with every bite of the salty-sweet, chewy, moist, buttery, flaky pastry. I shared my batch with my co-workers. One of which said, "you better be careful, these could get pretty addictive." And yes, she's right. Thankfully, they sell vegan croissants on Fridays at Grindcore House.

Another shameless picture of the marshmallow centered broughnie. This was epic.

Vegan Pop Ups must continue this refreshing tradition around Philadelphia. It has been a super amazing treat meeting people, eating new food creations, and finding cruelty free beauty products.

Swami primera mandó  hermano Bobby Patel  hablar de 'Sai Ashraya', que ha sido autorizada por el Estado de California. Dos niños se han sacado de las calles de forma permanente, y ahora están en el camino para la recuperación, pasando por la atención terapéutica. Swami ha dado a este proyecto para los jóvenes Sai de América, y el hermano de Bobby instó a todos los jóvenes a participar y ser parte de este viaje de auto-transformación. A partir de entonces, el hermano Sumeet Tappoo dirigida a los jóvenes hablar de los  Seva  proyectos en Fiji, y subrayó la necesidad de que todos los jóvenes a ser parte de la misión continua de Swami. 

Dos adultos jóvenes que han sido parte de 'Sai Ashraya' y 'Un mundo, un Sai', ambos hablaron de las iniciativas para la juventud. Un mundo, una Sai, es un esfuerzo para llevar a todos los jóvenes de todo el mundo en una sola plataforma, donde pueden intercambiar ideas, información e historias de transformación. La visión de Swami es que una vez que la juventud de todo el mundo están en esta plataforma que se sienten conectados y unidos ...

VISITA DIVINA - SAN JOSE - 18 de junio 2017 
 

Fue una mañana muy ocupada, como la familia Patel prepara para un Satsang  en su residencia. Sentimentales  bhajans  y canciones devocionales por el hermano Sumeet Tappoo elevan la energía divina en la habitación. Swami entonces mandó  Sri BN Narasimha Murthy  para hacer frente a la reunión íntima, y habló de las distintas funciones Swami adorna incluyendo la de la cabeza de una familia de devotos en todo el mundo, además de ser el creador. Él narró un par de casos para llevar a casa este tema. 

Swami continuó sobre el mismo tema y dijo: "La familia que reza unida, permanece unida. Familia no ora, no puede mantenerse. Si Dios se convierte en el hilo conductor de esta guirnalda de miembros de la familia, entonces la guirnalda estarán juntos. Si no hay hilo, a continuación, las flores se vendrá abajo. del mismo modo, la presencia de Dios en las vidas de los miembros de la familia es como el hilo de la guirnalda. mantiene todas las hermosas flores juntos y aumenta la belleza de esa guirnalda, que vale la pena ofrecer a Dios."

Swami dijo que en este punto en el tiempo en las familias mundo están rompiendo causa del egoísmo individual. Sociedades están rompiendo causa del egoísmo de las familias, la nación se está rompiendo, porque el egoísmo de la sociedad, y el mundo se está rompiendo ...

VISITA DIVINA - SAN JOSE - 19 junio 2017 
 

Fue un día histórico para el equipo del Centro para el Desarrollo Humano que había estado trabajando muy duro para la visita de Bhagavan a América del Norte, para el  Bhoomi Puja . Sacerdote observado desde Madrás  Sri Sathasivom  había llegado al sitio en las primeras horas de la mañana, y comenzó los rituales. El terreno, de unos 17 acres está situado en Los Gatos Hills, y situado en el regazo de la madre naturaleza. El Centro para el Desarrollo Humano servirá como un centro para todas las personas con ideas afines, cuyo objetivo principal será la de servir a la comunidad en todas las formas posibles.

Swami llegó con su comitiva en el lugar, donde más de 60 devotos ya habían montado. El  Navagraha Homa  se realizó en la presencia divina, y como pareja de Shiva  Bhajans  estaban siendo cantada por Brother Sumeet Tappoo, Bhagavan dio un Shivalingam blanco al cura. El cura de alegría abrió el camino a una zona, donde los ladrillos iban a ser establecido por los devotos. Swami dio instrucciones al Shivalingam para ser colocado en el útero de la madre tierra. Se excavó un agujero en la tierra y el lingam se colocó, y Swami declaró que esto va a proteger a toda la tierra y su entorno. También dijo que esto simboliza la unión de Shiva y Shakti,  Prakriti y Purusha , que dará a luz a este Centro que servir a la humanidad. Qué momento era ser testigo de esto! La energía era absolutamente increíble, y Swami dijo que todos los dioses estaban presentes, pero la presencia del Señor Shiva era tan fuerte y Swami declaró que el Señor Shiva fue el ' Adidevta ', la deidad que preside, del Desarrollo. 

A partir de entonces, Swami procedió a una casa que preexistía cuando el terreno Centre ...

          #4726: DXVA not functional with resolutions greater than 1080 on AMD GPUs   

AMDs fixed function video decoder engine (UVD) has supported H.264/VC-1/WMV decoding at 4K resolution since 5.0 version, which was introduced in Tonga ASIC. Since the launch of Tonga the decoder engine has evolved even further and the sixth version now support HEVC decoding at 4K resolution. The UVD6.x decoder was introduced in Wani (Carrizo SoC) and Fiji ASIC.

Currently all supported formats, on all ASICs (as listed previously) will fail to decode on ffmpeg through DXVA. All of the formats however can be decoded up to 1920x1080 resolution without any issues. Regardless of the format anything beyond this resolution will fall back to software decoder.

The DXVA acceleration works through Microsoft´s DTV DirectShow codec without any issues: H.264 has been validated at 4K in Windows 7 and HEVC has been validated at 4K in Windows 10 RTM with the same exact display drivers.

          AIR039: Jim McIlvaine (Part I) - Marquette star and NBA veteran   

Marquette star and NBA veteran, Jim McIlvaine. In a first for the podcast, this conversation will be released in two installments. Our chat was almost two hours, in length – I’m pretty sure that Jim’s wife had the authorities on speed dial, ready to report him missing – however, all’s well that ends well – Jim returned to normality at its conclusion and I couldn’t be happier with the finished episode.

In part one, we discuss Jim’s early years playing basketball and learn a great deal about his college career, where he was a stand-out at Marquette. This includes a funny story about Marquette’s early 1990s exhibition series that touched down here in Australia, then onto New Zealand and Fiji – complete with a near international incident. Also, if you’re a fan of the great documentary, Hoop Dreams, you won’t want to miss this chat.

We talk about the 1994 NBA Draft and Jim’s two seasons in Washington, playing for the Bullets. He openly-discusses his free-agent move to Seattle – a contract widely debated at the time and still mentioned on occasion, to this day. On top of this, we learn about the importance and value of the National Basketball Retired Players Association (the NBRPA), of which Jim is a lifetime member.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more open, honest and engaging guy, than Jim – I’m confident you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as I did, recording it. Thank you, Jim, for your generous availability.

Part two of this conversation will examine Jim's career in Seattle, his trade to the New Jersey Nets and injuries that ultimately led to his NBA retirement. We also discuss Jim's broadcasting career, great basketball movies and his classic encounter with Gene Hackman.

We’re now in the final days of 2013, as this episode is released. I hope you thoroughly enjoy the holiday season and have a great New Year. Exciting plans are ahead for 2014 – I hope that you continue to join me on this podcast journey. Thank you very much for your support.

          Balsam i peeling Dr Irena Eris Spa Resort Fiji   

Zmysłowa pielęgnacja ciała od Dr Ireny Eris z serii Resort Spa wzbogaciła się właśnie o nową, egzotyczną linię prosto z rajskiej wyspy Fiji. Oferta kosmetyków Resort Spa jest dostępna wyłącznie w perfumeriach Douglas, a cała linia opiera się na idei luksusowej pielęgnacji o egzotycznych zapachach i składnikach z różnych zakątków świata. Kosmetyki przyciągają zarówno pięknymi opakowaniami jak i obietnicą wyrafinowanych i niespotykanych zapachów. Po Hawajach, Mauritiusie czy Tahiti wybieramy się na Fiji czyli do państwa położonego na setkach wysp i wysepek wulkanicznych. Wystarczy spojrzeć na malownicze obrazy z wysp aby dostrzec jak misternie został oddany klimat tego państwa  w szacie graficznej opakowań.


Mimo, że mam dużo balsamów i peelingów moja ciekawość wzięła górę i jeszcze tego samego dnia, którego otrzymałam przesyłkę postanowiłam rozpieczętować peeling i sprawić sobie porządne złuszczanie martwego naskórka. Dr Irena Eris Spa Resort wygładzający peeling do ciała okazał się niezłym zdzierakiem. Drobiny w scrubie są całkiem spore i wygładzają skórę już po jednym użyciu. Zapach, który unosi się w łazience po aplikacji kosmetyku jest świeży i wakacyjny, ale nie utrzymuje się długo po wyjściu z kąpieli. 


Odżywczy balsam-nektar zawiera ekstrakt z bardzo ciekawej rośliny o nazwie Strelicja królewska znanej też pod nazwą królowa raju lub królowa kwiatów. Strelicja zawiera cenne minerały (wapń, sód, magnez, potas), oligo- i polisacharydy, proteiny, składniki fenolowe i pigmenty. Jej ekstrakt jest znany głównie z własności nawilżających oraz antyoksydacyjnych. Balsam ma tą samą nutę zapachową i idealnie uzupełnia zabieg wcześniejszego, powierzchownego złuszczania peelingiem. Potęguje przyjemność stosowania i przedłuża trwałość pięknego, egzotycznego zapachu na skórze. 



Kosmetyki idealnie spiszą się podczas nadchodzących wakacji i  letniego urlopu, na który zapewne wiele z Was wyjedzie. Linia zapachowa Fiji z serii Resort Spa świetnie nadaje się do stosowania po opalaniu i kąpieli. Mi każdy wakacyjny wyjazd kojarzy się z konkretnym zapachem (np. żelu pod prysznic lub balsamu). Czuję, że to lato zdominuje u mnie seria Spa Resort Fiji :)

          JPM ATANGAZA MAAMUZI MAGUMU   
NA CHRISTINA GAULUHANGA – DAR ES SALAAM. RAIS Dk. John Magufuli amesema mvua inyeshe au jua liwake atatekeleza mradi mkubwa wa umeme wa Stiegler’s Gorge ulioshindikana kwa zaidi ya miaka 40 baada ya kuwekewa vikwazo mbalimbali. Stiegler’s Gorge ni mradi mkubwa wa uzalishaji umeme wa maji katika bonde la Mto Rufiji kwenye pori la akiba la Selous.
          Rais Magufuli: Tanzania ni Yetu, Selous Iko Tanzania......Tuna Uhuru wa Kuamua Mambo Yetu maana Tumechoka Kuchezewa   
Rais  John Magufuli amesema ujenzi wa mradi wa umeme katika maporomoko ya maji ya mto Rufiji (Stiegler’s Gorge) mkoani Pwani lazima ufanyike, akiapa kuwa inyeshe mvua au liwake jua, lazima utajengwa.

Alisema hayo jana alipokuwa akifungua Maonesho ya 41 ya Kimataifa ya Biashara ya Dar es Salaam yanayoendelea katika Viwanja vya Mwalimu Julius Nyerere (Sabasaba), barabara ya Kilwa.

Aliwaeleza wawekezaji kuwa changamoto ya umeme wa uhakika itakwisha, kwani Tanzania itakuwa na umeme wa megawati kati ya 4,000 na 5, 000 utakapokamilika mradi huo.

“Inyeshe mvua, liwake jua Stiegler’s Gorge itajengwa, tumeamua kuchukua juhudi za makusudi kuifufua na ninawahakikishia wawekezaji tunaifufua... na tunaanza kwa fedha yetu,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

Aliwahakikishia wawekezaji wa ndani na nje ya nchi kuwa Tanzania imejipanga vizuri, kuweka mazingira mazuri kutatua changamoto za sekta ya viwanda. 

“Moja ya changamoto kubwa ni suala la umeme, kama serikali tumeamua kuchukua jitihada za makusudi kutekeleza ahadi za Mwalimu Nyerere ya kuendeleza Stiegler’s Gorge kwa kujenga bwawa kubwa,” alisema.

Alisema ameshatoa maelekezo kwa wizara husika, pia imeundwa timu ya wataalamu wa kufuatilia na kwamba zabuni itakapotangazwa, watu wajitokeze kwa ajili ya ujenzi. 

Alisema ujenzi wa bwawa hilo, utawezesha kupatikana umeme wa megawati 2,100, ikimaanisha kuwa ni umeme utakaotosheleza mahitaji mengi, yakiwemo ya matumizi ya kawaida, viwandani na mengineyo.

“Najua wapo watakaojiuliza fedha kweli wanazo? Nataka kuwaambia fedha tunazo, haiingii akilini tunazungumzia viwanda wakati umeme hatuna,” alisema. 

Aliongeza kuwa, Serikali ikiomba fedha za mradi huo kwa wafadhili, wataweka masharti makubwa na kuambiwa mradi huo una matatizo ya kimazingira.

“Nataka kuwaambia kuwa hatutasikiliza suala la environmental impact (athari za kimazingira), Selous iko Tanzania, tunawajibu wa kuamua jambo la kufanya ambapo,” alisema Rais na kuongeza kuwa mradi huo, utatumia asilimia tatu tu ya hifadhi hiyo.

Alisema kwa watu ambao wanazingatia mambo ya kimazingira, wataona kwamba Tanzania inatunza mazingira, kwani yatapatikana maji kwa ajili pia ya uvuvi, viumbehai wengine watatumia pia maji hayo kwa kilimo.

Rais Magufuli aliwaomba wadau wa maendeleo ambao wana nia ya kuisaidia Tanzania, wajitokeze ili Watanzania wanufaike na maliasili zao. 

Alisema umeme unaopatikana sasa hapa nchini ni megawati 1,460, lakini jitihada mbalimbali zimefanyika katika kuongeza kiwango hicho, ambapo ni pamoja na kuongeza umeme katika miradi ya Kinyerezi I, II na III iliyopo Dar es Salaam, itakayoongeza upatikanaji wa umeme nchini.

Rais Magufuli waliwaomba pia mabalozi wa nchi zote zenye uwakilishi hapa nchini, kuisaidia Tanzania kupitia nchi zao katika miradi mikubwa ambayo ina tija kwa taifa zima.

 “Kwa sababu tukishaweza kuzalisha megawati 2,100 watu wengi watakuwa na umeme, nina uhakika Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje atakuwa amechukua hiyo, na pia nawaomba mabalozi wote tunahitaji msaada katika miradi mikubwa,” alisema.

Rais Magufuli alipongeza maandalizi ya maonesho hayo, ambapo baada ya kuhutubia alipita kuangalia baadhi ya mabanda na kupata maelezo mbalimbali. 

Alisema maonesho hayo yana faida kubwa kwa wafanyabiashara, kwani huwakutanisha na wateja wao na pia kukutana na kampuni nyingine za nje na ndani ya nchi, kujifunza mambo mbalimbali na pia kubadilishana uzoefu na kuanzisha uhusiano wa kibiashara.

Alizipongeza pia kampuni za ndani na zile za nje takribani 3,000, zinazoshiriki katika maonesho hayo, zikiwemo 515 kutoka katika nchi 30 duniani. Rais Magufuli alisema Tanzania ni salama na ya amani na kwamba ipo kwa ajili ya wawekezaji.

Aliwataka Watanzania kutumia maonesho hayo, kama chachu ya kuibadili Tanzania. 

“Tumechoka, tumechezewa sana, lakini tulichezewa kwa sababu tuliamua sisi kuchezewa lazima tubadilike na moyo wa kubadili Tanzania tuanze sasa,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

          Polisi Watangaza Majina Ya Watuhumiwa 16 Wa Mauaji Yanayoendelea Kibiti, Mkuranga Na Ikwiriri   
Naibu Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani, Eng. Hamad Yussuf Masauni ametangaza kuwa, Jeshi la Polisi linawasaka watuhumiwa 16 wa mauaji ambayo yamekuwa yakiendelea kufanyika katika maeneo ya Kibiti, Mkuranga na Rufiji mkoani Pwani kwa muda mrefu sasa.

Masauni amesema jeshi jilo litatumia nguvu zote inazoweza kuweza kukomesha mauaji hayo ili wakazi wa eneo hilo waweze kuishi kwa amani na kurudi kwenye maisha yao ya kila siku.

Aidha Jeshi la Polisi lilisema kuwa, zawadi nono itatolewa kwa watakaofanikisha kukamatwa kwa wahalifu hao.

          Polisi Tanzania waua Wahalifu wanne Kibiti-Pwani.   
Mkuu wa Oparesheni Maalumu za Jeshi la Polisi, Naibu Kamishna wa Polisi Liberatus Sabas, akionyesha bunduki aina SMG iliyopatikana juzi usiku wakati wa mapambano baina ya wahalifu hao na polisi.

Jeshi la Polisi nchini limefanikiwa kuwaua wahalifu wanne wanaosadikiwa kuwa miongoni mwa wahalifu wanaoendesha mauaji katika wilaya za Mkuranga, Kibiti na Rufiji katika mapambano yaliyodumu kwa zaidi ya nusu saa katika kijiji cha Pagae wilayani Kibiti mkoani Pwani.

Akielezea tukio hilo Mkuu wa Oparesheni Maalumu za Jeshi la Polisi, Naibu Kamishna wa Polisi Liberatus Sabas alisema tukio hilo lilitokea siku ya Alhamisi juni 29 majira ya saa tatu usiku kwenye barabara ya vumbi itokayo Pagae kuelekea Nyambunda ambapo Askari Polisi wakiwa doria walikutana na kikundi cha watu kinachokadiriwa kuwa na watu sita ambapo wahalifu hao baada ya kuona gari la Polisi walikimbilia vichakani na kuanza kuwarushia risasi Polisi.
Sabasalisema baada ya hali hiyo kutokea Askari nao kwa ujasiri walijibu na mapambano hayo yalidumu kwa zaidi ya nusu saa ambapo Polisi walifanikiwa kuwajeruhi wahalifu wanne kwa risasi ambao baadaye walifariki dunia wakiwa wanapelekwa hospitali.

Katika tukio hilo tumefanikiwa kupata silaha mbili aina ya SMG na magazine mbili pamoja na risasi 17 zilizokuwa zinatumiwa na wahalifu hao na hii ni dalili kuwa tunaendelea vizuri na oparesheni yetu ambayo inashirikisha vyombo vingine vya ulinzi na Usalama katika wilaya hizi tatu za Mkuranga, Kibiti, na Rufiji” Alisema Sabas.

Aidha Sabas ametoa wito kwa wahalifu wengine kuacha mara moja kufanya vitendo hivyo kwa kuwa vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama vinaendelea kufanya jitihada zote za kuhakikisha kuwa maeneo hayo yanakuwa salama na wananchi wanaishi katika hali ya amani na usalama.

Vilevile amewataka wananchi kutoa taarifa zitakazowezesha kupatikana wahalifu wengine ili kuhakikisha kuwa kila mmoja anaishi kwa usalama ambapo kwa ambaye atakayetoa taarifa zitakazowezesha kupatikana kwa wahalifu hao kiasi cha shilingi milioni kumi kitatolewa na Mkuu wa Jeshi la Polisi nchini IGP Simon Sirro.

Taarifa na Jeshi la Polisi.

          RAIS MAGUFULI : UJENZI WA MRADI WA UMEME KWENYE MAPOROMOKO YA MAJI MTO RUFIJI LAZIMA UJENGWE   

Rais  John Magufuli amesema ujenzi wa mradi wa umeme katika maporomoko ya maji ya mto Rufiji (Stiegler’s Gorge) mkoani Pwani lazima ufanyike, akiapa kuwa inyeshe mvua au liwake jua, lazima utajengwa.



Alisema hayo jana alipokuwa akifungua Maonesho ya 41 ya Kimataifa ya Biashara ya Dar es Salaam yanayoendelea katika Viwanja vya Mwalimu Julius Nyerere (Sabasaba), barabara ya Kilwa.

Aliwaeleza wawekezaji kuwa changamoto ya umeme wa uhakika itakwisha, kwani Tanzania itakuwa na umeme wa megawati kati ya 4,000 na 5, 000 utakapokamilika mradi huo.

“Inyeshe mvua, liwake jua Stiegler’s Gorge itajengwa, tumeamua kuchukua juhudi za makusudi kuifufua na ninawahakikishia wawekezaji tunaifufua... na tunaanza kwa fedha yetu,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

Aliwahakikishia wawekezaji wa ndani na nje ya nchi kuwa Tanzania imejipanga vizuri, kuweka mazingira mazuri kutatua changamoto za sekta ya viwanda. 

“Moja ya changamoto kubwa ni suala la umeme, kama serikali tumeamua kuchukua jitihada za makusudi kutekeleza ahadi za Mwalimu Nyerere ya kuendeleza Stiegler’s Gorge kwa kujenga bwawa kubwa,”alisema.

Alisema ameshatoa maelekezo kwa wizara husika, pia imeundwa timu ya wataalamu wa kufuatilia na kwamba zabuni itakapotangazwa, watu wajitokeze kwa ajili ya ujenzi. 

Alisema ujenzi wa bwawa hilo, utawezesha kupatikana umeme wa megawati 2,100, ikimaanisha kuwa ni umeme utakaotosheleza mahitaji mengi, yakiwemo ya matumizi ya kawaida, viwandani na mengineyo.

Aliwataka Watanzania kutumia maonesho hayo, kama chachu ya kuibadili Tanzania. 

“Tumechoka, tumechezewa sana, lakini tulichezewa kwa sababu tuliamua sisi kuchezewa lazima tubadilike na moyo wa kubadili Tanzania tuanze sasa,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

          JESHI LA POLISI LAWASAKA WATUHUMIWA 16 WA MAUAJI KIBITI   
Naibu Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani, Eng. Hamad Yussuf Masauni ametangaza kuwa, Jeshi la Polisi linawasaka watuhumiwa 16 wa mauaji ambayo yamekuwa yakiendelea kufanyika katika maeneo ya Kibiti, Mkuranga na Rufiji mkoani Pwani kwa muda mrefu sasa.

          Beer Braised Brisket over Polenta with Onion Jam   

Note, this post is sponsored by Fiji Water-Perfection Takes Time, but all thoughts, opinions, and content are my own!

Beer Braised Brisket over Polenta with Onion Jam | The Sweets Life
We are a family that is always on the go. A free weeknight is rare, a weekend, even rarer. I'm usually thinking two steps ahead and rushing full speed to get there. As I result, I tend to opt for quick and easy meals. Unfortunately, as much as I strive for efficiency, too often I fall into the trap of taking shortcuts and rushing through life. When I purposefully take a step back, slow down, and, cliche as it sounds, enjoy the ride, I witness a bit of perfection that would otherwise never come to fruition. I've noticed this in parenthood, in my marriage, and, yes, in my food. There's something particularly satisfying about a meal that you planned and then took time perfecting, far more satisfying than a rushed and distracted thirty minutes. 
Pin ItBeer Braised Brisket over Polenta with Onion Jam | The Sweets Life
The fact of the matter is, sometimes the best things in life take a little extra time.... waiting for homemade ice cream to churn and then freeze is ultimately more rewarding than anything you can eat out of a carton, Fiji Water, yes, you know the fancy water I'm talking about, tastes particularly fresh because it is tapped at the source after its journey from cloud to aquifer, and that ten year old friendship that's been cultivated over years is always going to mean more than the new acquaintance down the street. The same can be said about this beer-braised brisket served over cheesy polenta.
Beer Braised Brisket over Polenta with Onion Jam | The Sweets Life

It's a two day process, beginning with a four hour cook in the oven, an overnight rest to soak up flavor, and a final reheat of the tender meat. The finished product melts in your mouth; the creamy polenta sops up all of the juices left behind and the caramelized onion jam takes the entire dish up a notch. This recipe is a labor of love, and one that deservedly tastes as such! Learn this lesson alongside of me; when you slow down enough to savor something, even at the expense of your supposedly valuable time, you gain perspective, patience, and, dare I say it, perfection!

For the recipe, and many other 'Perfection Takes Time' Recipes, head over to Fiji Water!

          2017第二季結束了,科技股殺尾,Q3金融股接棒上漲?巴菲特除了富國銀行後,又掌握了美國銀行!   
第二季在週末劃下了句號...
時間真的過很快,就這樣邁入了下半年。

在第二季倒數第二個交易日(6/29),
美股出現了一點小亂流,
道瓊指數跌168點約0.78%,S&P500指數跌約0.86%,
科技類股的Nasdaq指數跌約1.44%。

美股出現大跌,
S&P500和道瓊都創下六週以來單日最大跌幅
主要是因為科技類股再度暴跌。

畢德歐夫當時在粉絲團發文的時候,約略是當日跌幅最深的時候,
當時整個盤面紅得發亮,
只有通過Fed年度壓力測試的銀行類股是綠色的。
補充:美股紅色為下跌,綠色為上漲

上圖為6/29當日午盤跌幅最深的時候,各類股漲跌分布圖(可點圖放大)

科技類股雖然之前將S&P500指數推升了8%,
是美股再創歷史新高的功臣,
不過Q2尾聲表現不甚理想,
不管是Google(股票代號:GOOGL)或
發表新的GPU使用架構的NVIDIA(股票代號:NVDA)。
都往下做了回檔。

上圖為Google日線圖(可點圖放大)


上圖為NVIDIA日線圖(可點圖放大)

而股市在這幾天內出現了劇烈的波動,
那斯達克當天跌超過50日均線的跌幅,
這是自4月13日以來首次出現這樣的狀況,
整個變動頻率比之前來的多。

衡量華爾街恐慌程度的VIX指數一度飆高到到15.16。
投資人擔心全球升息的趨勢加快,
不過目前我個人判斷年底前只會再升息1~2碼。

當天大跌,銀行類股為什麼上漲呢?
因為Fed對銀行的年度壓力測試,
大型銀行幾乎都過關了,
同意銀行增加「股息支付和股票購回」的計畫
銀行類股當然是上漲,
富國銀行(股票代號:WFC)與花旗(股票代號:C)也都是上漲。
如果想要了解富國銀行,請參考過去這篇專欄:
老實銀行160年來都賺錢的真實故事

如果讀者對於美國的金融股不熟,也不用擔心
畢竟大多數人還是對台股中的金融股比較熟,
那美股怎麼選呢?
很簡單!你就不要選了,
直接買進XLF這檔ETF就好,
這檔ETF每天的平均成交量有6千萬股到1億股之間,
(一天成交值約440億台幣以上)
量能非常的大,流動性沒有問題。

XLF內含的持股如下:



持股最多的就是大家耳熟能詳的波克夏(股票代號:BRK.B)了,
另外的九家也都是美國重量級的銀行類股,
買ETF的一大好處就是懶人不用選股。

巴菲特又賺到了一大票,投資人無法複製的利潤

繼成為富國銀行最大股東後,
老巴將美國銀行(股票代號:BAC)的優先股轉換為普通股,
成為了美國銀行的大股東,獲利達150億美元。

金融危機時巴菲特的救市之舉,最有名的就是「援助高盛」,
2008年9月,老巴同意對高盛(股票代號:GS)援助50億美元,
條件是什麼呢?
他獲得了高盛(股票代號:GS)市值50億美元的優先股,股利為盈餘的10%
同時獲得了普通股認股權證,
允許他以每股115美元的價格收購高盛另外價值50億美元的普通股,
當時高盛(股票代號:GS)股價為每股125美元。
坊間總有以他為名或者以他投資哲學出的書,
認為台股也能找到巴菲特喜歡的股票。

只是台股並沒有巴菲特持股,也幾乎無法複製他的成功。

大家敬佩他當年在股市崩潰時危機入市的眼光。
摸底這個策略大家都會,甚至一般散戶就是死在這招,
但巴菲特的抄底為啥總能穩賺不賠。

很簡單!因為他是「巴菲特」,
有財務的專業又有媒體的加持,更有良好的政商關係。
2011年,當美銀(股票代號:BAC)深陷危機時,
巴菲特又向美銀投下50億美元換得優先股,
並以每股7.14美元的價格購得美銀7億單位的股票認股權證。

老巴幾個援助的特色,
第一、幾乎都要求要很高的股息,他要的是優先股不是普通股。
第二、要求相當大單位的看漲期權,而且行使的履約價低於目前市價


看不懂的讀者不用擔心,翻譯成白話給各位。

你公司缺錢嗎?我要你未來公司每年有盈餘的話,
要支付我10%的利息!
(相較於現在銀行的利率,這真的很高。)
如果我都分不到股息的話,
那普通股的股東、股民們,更休想分到一毛錢!

接著呢?因為跟整個政府單位相當熟悉,
政商關係也是投資的一大利器。

只要援救成功的話,我還要繼續分紅。
怎麼分?
舉例:公司股價如果漲到125,
我要用100認購,認購股數都超多。

Fed上週三通過了美銀的資本計劃,
美銀將股息增加60%至每季12美分(每年48美分),
並將回購129億美元股份。

而巴菲特在今年2月致股東信中提到,
如果美銀的股息在2021年前漲至44美分以上,
就會無條件將優先股轉換為普通股。
當時美銀普通股每年的分紅為30美分。

Fed對美銀的壓力測試過關後,
終於成了巴菲特等待已久的獲利收割點。

去年11月川普上台後,BAC股價從11/4的16.55,
大漲至3月初的高點25.23美元,漲幅52.4%。

上個月才「援助」HCG,報酬率驚人

可能是台股最近很熱,
這則新聞比較沒被讀者留意到。

巴菲特所執掌的波克夏同意以4億加元(約92.8億元台幣)代價,
間接收購加拿大房貸機構Home Capital Group(股票代號:HCG)約38.4%股權,
並另外提供20億加元(約464.2億元台幣)信用額度給HCG子公司Home Trust Company。

在加拿大成立30年的老字號房貸機構HCG,
今年4月遭官方指控誤導投資人而陷入經營困境,
導致股價崩跌。
波克夏買進HCG約4000萬股股票,相當於持股38.4%,
換算買進均價約為每股10加元,
上週五收盤為止HCG股價已經漲到16.99加元。


回到一開始我們介紹的XLF這檔金融類ETF,
還記得嗎?除了第一大持股是波克夏(股票代號:BRK.B),
當中的美國銀行(股票代號:BAC)與富國銀行(股票代號:WFC),
巴菲特幾乎都已經牢牢控制住了。

未來他的動向依舊會深深影響著這些金融集團。

第三季美股傾向保守,
等九月底我們再來看看有沒有好的類股可以買進了!

          The 2nd Coral Reef Management Symposium on Coral Triangle Areas   

The Coral Triangle Area, consisting of the waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Brunei, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste is recognized, not only as the center of world marine biodiversity, but also as the most important refuge for the world’s marine life. The region is home to more than 500 species of corals and 3,000 species of reef fishes. Most importantly, this area supports more than 200 million people.

Indonesia is located at the heart of the "The Coral Triangle" and has the largest coral reef area of any country in the world. Unfortunately, human activities have placed substantial pressures on these fragile ecosystems and have caused serious coral reef degradation, mostly through destructive fishing, overfishing, global warming, coral mining, pollution, sedimentation and nutrient depletion. As a result, only around 6 percent of the coral reefs in the country remain in very good condition.

The 2009 Manado Ocean Declaration and CTI Leaders Declaration on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security stressed the need for national strategies for sustainable management of coastal and marine ecosystems that deliver valuable goods and services and that have significant potential for addressing the adverse effects of climate change. The negotiations at Manado were contentious and focused on the environment and its relationship to national economies. The balancing of interests between economic development and natural conservation is very challenging; and requires the appropriate guidance of science, technology, and management.

The Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, through the Coral Reef Rehabilitation and Management Program Phase II (COREMAP II), in conjunction with "Sail Wakatobi-Belitung 2011", will conduct an international symposium to discuss the abovementioned challenges on 28-30 September 2011. The symposium will bring together policy makers, scientists, NGOs and the private sector to identify solutions for coral reef issues; and be in tangent with the theme "Coral Reefs: Global Threats and Opportunities".

          2017第二季結束了,科技股殺尾,Q3金融股接棒上漲?巴菲特除了富國銀行後,又掌握了美國銀行!   
第二季在週末劃下了句號...
時間真的過很快,就這樣邁入了下半年。

在第二季倒數第二個交易日(6/29),
美股出現了一點小亂流,
道瓊指數跌168點約0.78%,S&P500指數跌約0.86%,
科技類股的Nasdaq指數跌約1.44%。

美股出現大跌,
S&P500和道瓊都創下六週以來單日最大跌幅
主要是因為科技類股再度暴跌。

畢德歐夫當時在粉絲團發文的時候,約略是當日跌幅最深的時候,
當時整個盤面紅得發亮,
只有通過Fed年度壓力測試的銀行類股是綠色的。
補充:美股紅色為下跌,綠色為上漲

上圖為6/29當日午盤跌幅最深的時候,各類股漲跌分布圖(可點圖放大)

科技類股雖然之前將S&P500指數推升了8%,
是美股再創歷史新高的功臣,
不過Q2尾聲表現不甚理想,
不管是Google(股票代號:GOOGL)或
發表新的GPU使用架構的NVIDIA(股票代號:NVDA)。
都往下做了回檔。

上圖為Google日線圖(可點圖放大)


上圖為NVIDIA日線圖(可點圖放大)

而股市在這幾天內出現了劇烈的波動,
那斯達克當天跌超過50日均線的跌幅,
這是自4月13日以來首次出現這樣的狀況,
整個變動頻率比之前來的多。

衡量華爾街恐慌程度的VIX指數一度飆高到到15.16。
投資人擔心全球升息的趨勢加快,
不過目前我個人判斷年底前只會再升息1~2碼。

當天大跌,銀行類股為什麼上漲呢?
因為Fed對銀行的年度壓力測試,
大型銀行幾乎都過關了,
同意銀行增加「股息支付和股票購回」的計畫
銀行類股當然是上漲,
富國銀行(股票代號:WFC)與花旗(股票代號:C)也都是上漲。
如果想要了解富國銀行,請參考過去這篇專欄:
老實銀行160年來都賺錢的真實故事

如果讀者對於美國的金融股不熟,也不用擔心
畢竟大多數人還是對台股中的金融股比較熟,
那美股怎麼選呢?
很簡單!你就不要選了,
直接買進XLF這檔ETF就好,
這檔ETF每天的平均成交量有6千萬股到1億股之間,
(一天成交值約440億台幣以上)
量能非常的大,流動性沒有問題。

XLF內含的持股如下:



持股最多的就是大家耳熟能詳的波克夏(股票代號:BRK.B)了,
另外的九家也都是美國重量級的銀行類股,
買ETF的一大好處就是懶人不用選股。

巴菲特又賺到了一大票,投資人無法複製的利潤

繼成為富國銀行最大股東後,
老巴將美國銀行(股票代號:BAC)的優先股轉換為普通股,
成為了美國銀行的大股東,獲利達150億美元。

金融危機時巴菲特的救市之舉,最有名的就是「援助高盛」,
2008年9月,老巴同意對高盛(股票代號:GS)援助50億美元,
條件是什麼呢?
他獲得了高盛(股票代號:GS)市值50億美元的優先股,股利為盈餘的10%
同時獲得了普通股認股權證,
允許他以每股115美元的價格收購高盛另外價值50億美元的普通股,
當時高盛(股票代號:GS)股價為每股125美元。
坊間總有以他為名或者以他投資哲學出的書,
認為台股也能找到巴菲特喜歡的股票。

只是台股並沒有巴菲特持股,也幾乎無法複製他的成功。

大家敬佩他當年在股市崩潰時危機入市的眼光。
摸底這個策略大家都會,甚至一般散戶就是死在這招,
但巴菲特的抄底為啥總能穩賺不賠。

很簡單!因為他是「巴菲特」,
有財務的專業又有媒體的加持,更有良好的政商關係。
2011年,當美銀(股票代號:BAC)深陷危機時,
巴菲特又向美銀投下50億美元換得優先股,
並以每股7.14美元的價格購得美銀7億單位的股票認股權證。

老巴幾個援助的特色,
第一、幾乎都要求要很高的股息,他要的是優先股不是普通股。
第二、要求相當大單位的看漲期權,而且行使的履約價低於目前市價


看不懂的讀者不用擔心,翻譯成白話給各位。

你公司缺錢嗎?我要你未來公司每年有盈餘的話,
要支付我10%的利息!
(相較於現在銀行的利率,這真的很高。)
如果我都分不到股息的話,
那普通股的股東、股民們,更休想分到一毛錢!

接著呢?因為跟整個政府單位相當熟悉,
政商關係也是投資的一大利器。

只要援救成功的話,我還要繼續分紅。
怎麼分?
舉例:公司股價如果漲到125,
我要用100認購,認購股數都超多。

Fed上週三通過了美銀的資本計劃,
美銀將股息增加60%至每季12美分(每年48美分),
並將回購129億美元股份。

而巴菲特在今年2月致股東信中提到,
如果美銀的股息在2021年前漲至44美分以上,
就會無條件將優先股轉換為普通股。
當時美銀普通股每年的分紅為30美分。

Fed對美銀的壓力測試過關後,
終於成了巴菲特等待已久的獲利收割點。

去年11月川普上台後,BAC股價從11/4的16.55,
大漲至3月初的高點25.23美元,漲幅52.4%。

          “Men have no idea what we go through”: ending violence against women in the Pacific Islands   

Leaders of Pacific Island countries have introduced new initiatives to tackle violence against women – but they're largely missing the mark.

A woman speaks out in a meeting of men. A woman speaks out in a meeting of men. Photo: Ali Rae.Have efforts to improve the policing of violence against women, in Pacific Island societies, increased women’s safety? Between 2015 and 2016 I conducted field research on precisely this question, in Fiji, Bougainville and New Caledonia.

At the conclusion of one meeting with a group of women in Fiji I was confronted with a striking observation. One of the participants interrupted the friendly banter as we sat drinking tea with a request that the meeting be reconvened, with men invited to attend. “Our men have no idea what we go through,” she explained, “our stories are just our own”. 

This request reflected the difficulties women in Pacific Island countries have generally faced in getting their leaders to recognise and address the issue of violence against women. But it was also spoken in the context of a Fiji-wide government-led, “zero tolerance” for violence against women program. Launched in 2009, this ongoing initiative involves state legal authorities and is also a central part of new community policing programmes involving the “mana” of cultural and religious leaders for enforcement. ...a significant gap between the rhetoric and reality of reform.

These programmes were launched with much fanfare and have enjoyed positive media coverage inside the country. But the fact that the women participating in my research continued to feel that their stories of violence remained “just their own” suggested a significant gap between the rhetoric and reality of reform.

Across the Pacific Islands reforms designed to improve state responses to gender violence have been introduced in recent years, often following crucial awareness-raising work by women’s advocacy organisations like the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre, the Vanuatu Women’s centre and the Union des Femmes Francophone (working in the French Pacific territories of New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna and French Polynesia).

These state programs promise better protections for women who are subjected to violence in familial and conjugal settings, for instance, along with harsher penalties for perpetrators of such abuse.

However, despite such initiatives, available estimates continue to suggest that as many as two in three women in some Pacific countries are exposed to violence from family members or intimate partners at some point in their lives.

The failures of “protect and punish”

These challenges are not unique to Pacific Island countries, of course. In recent decades, governments around the globe have worked to improve their policing responses to violence against women. And from these experiences we are now learning more about the shortcomings of their efforts.

In particular, “punish and protect” models of state intervention that address gender violence as if it were a violent crime like any other often have contradictory impacts. These models treat such violence as “incident specific crime” – an approach which has trouble recognising, and ultimately does little to alleviate, the ways in which violence is experienced by women as a continuum of coercive and controlling behaviour. ...a continuum of coercive and controlling behaviour.

Efforts to address gender violence must instead recognise how violence is used in all societies to control women’s lives both within and outside the familial and conjugal realm. This violence can be used as a form of discipline to uphold norms of gendered behaviour, for instance, and to punish women individually when they overstep the boundaries of what is considered appropriate.  

Violent abuse can also function as part of broader behavioural patterns which entrap women in dependent relationships. Ironically, women who live with violence may fear what will befall them if the “protection” offered by males partners or family members, who are simultaneously also their “aggressors”, is removed by interventions to halt violence.

Fears of violence can further reinforce the discriminatory gendered political and economic ordering of society in broader ways. Controlling and dependent relationships with men can prevent women from joining with others in collective activity which might build social solidarity or provide them with resources to improve their economic or political standing.

One woman I interviewed in Bougainville, for instance, described her male partner’s anger when she returned home late from women’s church meetings and her strategy of often taking refuge at her sister’s house to escape violence.

When violence is used as form of gendered control in this way, it has an immediate physical impact, but it also reduces women’s capacity to achieve social, political, and economic autonomy – and as a result, women’s access to the resources or opportunities that enable resistance to abuse.  

“Sticky” norms and buck-passing

Today, more women across the Pacific region are raising their voices and protesting about their experiences of violence before the police and the judiciary. But here too, existing gender discriminatory norms remain “sticky” even in the wake of legal and policing reforms.  

In too many cases, women in Pacific Island jurisdictions report that they are turned away from police stations by officers who trivialise their complaints, encourage them to reflect on their own 'culpability' in violence (a view also promoted by some of the region’s political leaders), or take on a counselling role and encourage them to return to home and reconcile with their husbands.  

My recent research in Fiji has shown that where community leaders are involved in responding to this violence, women may face similar pressure to withdraw their complaints so that the integrity of their marriage or their family is maintained.

They may face additional pressures to reconcile with aggressors so that their village does not suffer the “intrusion” of police authorities who are feared as corrupt, as possible perpetrators of indiscriminate violence themselves, or more generally resented because they represent a system of state authority that is more resisted in Pacific Islands communities than commonly understood.

Photo: Nicole George.In such contexts, women’s efforts to seek justice may be seen as a matter that is handled more appropriately by village or customary authorities. These actors are often recognised by local communities and by state judiciaries as playing an important mediation role in some disputes (often those occurring between clan or family members).  

It is sometimes argued that where these pluralised networks of state and non-state authority overlap, individuals feel a greater sense of protection. But with complaints of violence against women, my recently-published research with Melissa Bull and Jodie Curth-Bibb shows that there can also be a tendency for mutual abrogation of authority or buck-passing.  

Testimonies I gathered from Kanak women in New Caledonia, for instance, show that women’s appeals for help in managing violence in their communities were frequently refused by both customary leaders and the gendarmerie national police. Each group said the other was the more appropriate source of support and protection.

“Tinkering at the edges”        

Little wonder, then, that many of the women I've interviewed talked not about their right to live free of violence but rather that violence is to be expected if women engaged in activity that is “not right.”

Many said security was not something they expected to be provided by authorities outside the home. Rather, they emphasised their own capacity to self-police their behaviour and adhere to expectations.

These testimonies offer unsettling insights into the ways that women’s experiences of violence are managed. Authorities’ initiatives have suffered under weak implementation. Reforms have adhered to a “punish and protect” model that does not address, and indeed utterly fails to recognise, the controlling and coercive effect of such violence.

Violence against women in Pacific Island societies – as well as elsewhere – cannot be fully addressed without also confronting broader gendered discriminations that make this violence possible and that limit women’s capacities to resist it.

Improving law and order responses is an important step. But this must be accompanied by broader programs that challenge the legitimacy of gender discrimination itself. To do otherwise is to but tinker at the edges of a deeply-entrenched social phenomenon.

          Cómo afecta el Ransomware a un Mac   
Los malware de tipo Ransomware siguen aumentando en popularidad. Es una especie de fiebre del oro y que se encuentra en marcha en el mundo cibernético. Cientos de millones de dólares se han generado en los últimos dos años debido a este tipo de lacra virtual. Una pregunta que se hacen muchos usuarios de Mac es si ellos son vulnerables a este tipo de malware. La respuesta es sencilla, sí. Todos los ataques de Ransomware mediáticos han sido sobre sistemas Windows, pero esto no quiere decir que no se puedan lanzar contra sistemas macOS. Hay que tener en cuenta que el Ransomware se aprovecha más del usuario que del sistema operativo, por lo que hay pocas barreras técnicas para crear un ataque contra los Mac

El vector de ataque más común para los sistemas Mac hasta ahora ha sido a través de la infección y Bypass de Gatekeeper o XProtect. Este tipo de paquetes han intentado evitar la detección de software antivirus de Mac y Windows. No todo son malas noticias en el mundo Mac, ya que a diferencia de los entornos Windows donde el Ransomware ha ido de la mano de vulnerabilidades críticas que propiciaban la propagación en entornos corporativos, gubernamentales o de salud, en un entorno Mac, al menos de momento, la propagación es por descarga fraudulenta. Además, aunque Mac ha crecido en popularidad, solo representan el 7% de los equipos del mundo, por lo que todavía se benefician de este hecho, para no ser un gran foco. En el blog hemos visto algunos ejemplos como, por ejemplo, KeRanger o MacRansom.

Figura 1: Malware en macOS en 2016. Incremento notable

En términos de datos, podemos ver como el malware en sistemas Mac está en alrededor de 450.000, mientras que en entornos Windows hablamos de 23 millones de amenazas conocidas. Estos datos nos arrojan mucha claridad, pero lo que tenemos que tener claro es que un entorno Mac empieza a ser cotizado por los delincuentas, por lo que no tenemos que bajar la guardia. Hay que mantener el equipo actualizado y utilizar los entornos de distribución de software como, por ejemplo, la Mac AppStore para no caer en las manos del malware.

          Ma-DC Kibiti, Rufiji wajitosa kukabili janga jipya   
By Azory Gwanda, Mwananchi agwanda@mwananchi.co.tz

Wilaya za Kibiti na Rufiji zimejitosa kushughulikia kilio cha uharibifu wa mikoko katika vijiji 10, huku zikiahidi kukabiliana ipasavyo na waharibifu.

Mikoko katika vijiji vya Kiongoroni, Jaja, Pombwe, Ruma, Mbuchi, Mbwera, Kiechuru, Twasalie, Kiasi na Msala inadaiwa kuharibiwa kwa kasi na wananchi, jambo ambalo limewaamsha wakuu wa wakuu hizo, Juma Njwayo (Rufiji) na Gullamuhussein Kifu (Kibiti).

Hata hivyo, vigogo hao ambao wilaya zao pia zimekumbwa na uharifu wa kiusalama wameitaka jamii kujitosa kuokoa jahazi kabla mkono wa sheria haujaanza kuwashukia waharibifu wa mikoko na mazalia ya viumbe hai wengine.

Kwa mujibu wa ofisa mazingira wa asasi ya Pakaya inayolenga kuzijengea uwezo familia zinazoishi kando ya misitu hiyo kuondokana na umaskini na kuendeleza jamii, Ally Yusuph kuna zaidi ya eka 15,000 za misitu ya mikoko na viumbe hai vilivyomo baharini katika wilaya hizo huenda vikaharibiwa kutokana na shughuli za kibinadamu zinazoendeshwa kwenye maeneo hayo.

“Hadi mwakani takwimu zinaonyesha zaidi ya eka 15,000 za misitu ya mikoko na viumbe hai zitakuwa zimeharibiwa kutokana na shughuli za kibinadamu zinazoendeshwa katika misitu iliyopo kandokando ya Bahari ya Hindi,” amesema.

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .
