It is little wonder that so many students, both international and local, choose to study English courses. Proficient and skilled use of the English language can enhance career prospects, allow you to achieve success in business and can open up many opportunities when you choose to study with a credible English school.
While there are many good reasons to study English, here we provide an overview of eight of the most important advantages of studying English:
#1: Without question, English is one of the most widely spoken languages. English is used in many parts of the world and is often the language that is common to people who have a first language other than English.
#2: When it comes to business and matters of trade, the English language tends to be the common currency. By studying English through a respected English school, you can expect to be able to conduct business transactions, write and respond to documents such as: emails, memos, contracts, agreements and reports and possibly pursue a career in business.
#3: Arguably the greatest advantage of studying English is that your career prospects and employment opportunities can vastly increase. People who can speak English fluently (possibly together with a first language) are highly sought after by companies of many types, including international companies. When seeking work, proficiency and confidence in speaking and understanding English can put you at a distinct advantage.
#4: With the world becoming so much closer and more connected, opportunities to travel and explore different parts of the world are more available and, as a result of having studied English, travellers are better able to communicate. In so many parts of the world, English is the common language that is spoken and when you have a command of the English language, travelling and interacting with people of different nationalities can become easier and more enjoyable.
#5: In terms of academia, English is the language most commonly spoken by academics worldwide. Of course, some important research and work occurs in all countries and in a variety of languages, but the vast majority tends to have been conducted, composed and published with the English language as its basis. Academics and scholars that have some knowledge of English frequently find that sharing their ideas and findings with their peers globally is more readily facilitated by their mastery of the English language.
#6: Technology is vital and significant in the day and age in which we live. English is very often the language used for many software programs and for those that are technologically minded and ambitious, the study of English can provide them with useful benefits and knowledge.
#7: Australia has many English schools that are renowned for their success in teaching students’ English and the quality and range of the English courses that they provide. Successful English schools and colleges tend to offer great value for money and support structures to assist students to learn effectively and grow in knowledge, skills and confidence. When you do choose to study English, your education is an investment and it is incredibly important that you derive exceptional value for your money.
#8: English courses are available and specifically tailored for people of varying levels of English proficiency and for those who wish to study English for different purposes. For example, some may want to undertake a very general English course, whereas others may wish to study English in relation to business or for academic purposes.
Through the study of English, a range of advantages are available. Quality courses offer candidates the opportunity to improve job prospects, the capacity to communicate with others and access to information right across the world.
So-called “smart fabrics” that have sensing, wireless communication, or health-monitoring technology integrated within them are the wave of the future for textile design, which is why researchers have been working on new ways to improve their design and fabrication.
Now a team from RMIT University in Australia have done just that with new technology that can rapidly fabricate waterproof smart textiles with integrated energy-harvesting and storage technology that precludes the need for a battery, researchers said.
Indeed, this is one of the challenges to developing smart textiles—a power source that doesn’t burden the wearer or is user-friendly, said Litty Thekkakara, a researcher in RMIT’s School of Science who worked on the project.
“By solving the energy storage-related challenges of e-textiles, we hope to power the next generation of wearable technology and intelligent clothing,” she said in a press statement.
Printing the Power
Specifically, Thekkakara and her colleagues have developed a method for fabricating a 10-by-10 centimeter waterproof, flexible textile patch with graphene supercapacitors directly laser-printed onto the fabric.
The invention is an alternative method to current processes for developing smart textiles, which have which have some limitations, she said.
“Current approaches to smart textile energy storage, like stitching batteries into garments or using e-fibers, can be cumbersome and heavy, and can also have capacity issues,” Thekkakara said in a press statement.
The electronic components also can be in danger of short circuiting or failing when they come in contact with sweat or moisture from the environment if the textile isn’t waterproof, she added.
Washable and Durable
The team tested their invention by connecting the supercapacitor with a solar cell to create a self-powering, washable smart fabric. Tests analyzing the performance of the fabric showed it remained relatively stable and efficient at various temperatures and under mechanical stress, researchers said. Researchers reported these findings in an article in the journal Scientific Reports.
The team envisions the e-textile being used in novel wearable technology, which is currently being developed not only for consumer-fitness applications, but also for specialized clothing in medical and defense sectors for health monitoring and safety tracking, respectively.
The laser-printing method also paves the way for new, more advanced fabrication of next-generation smart textiles that can integrate intelligence in the process itself, said Min Gu, RMIT honorary professor and distinguished professor at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology
“It also opens the possibility for faster roll-to-roll fabrication, with the use of advanced laser printing based on multifocal fabrication and machine learning techniques,” he said in a press statement.

Delil Souleiman/GettyLate Sunday night in Washington, the White House announced it was pulling U.S. troops out of northeast Syria to clear the way for a Turkish invasion. The Kurds there who led the fight on the ground that defeated the so-called Islamic State had seen President Donald Trump’s betrayal coming. But still they hoped it could be avoided. “Don’t let the Turks disrupt my wedding,” our translator texted in September prior to our arrival in the region. For more than a year, we have been visiting almost monthly to interview captured ISIS cadres held by the Kurdish and Arab troops of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as part of a project for the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism. Trump’s Crazy Syria Move Will Wipe Out America’s Allies and Set Up a Big ISIS ComebackIn September, we saw the Turkish threat to invade at any moment was held off by tense U.S. negotiations in which the SDF made considerable concessions, allowing Turkey to patrol jointly a large swath of territory while agreeing to remove checkpoints and military positions farther back from the Turkish border.“They should put their patrols inside Turkish territory, and not enter Syria,” SDF leaders told us at the time, as they reluctantly acquiesced to U.S. demands.* * *BITTER FRIENDS* * *Many current and former White House advisors counseled against the kind of announcement made Sunday night. Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned last year over Trump’s threat to remove the few thousand U.S. troops in Syria, who not only served as advisors in the fight against ISIS, but as deterrence against Turkish operations east of the Euphrates River. In a particularly bitter post on Twitter, Bret McGurk, who served as the special U.S. presidential envoy for the fight against ISIS from 2015 to 2018, wrote, “Donald Trump is not a Commander-in-Chief. He makes impulsive decisions with no knowledge or deliberation. He sends military personnel into harm’s way with no backing. He blusters and then leaves our allies exposed when adversaries call his bluff or he confronts a hard phone call.”The U.S. military learned about the withdrawal plan only after Trump decided on it following his Sunday phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It has pulled out of two small observation posts in the security-mechanism zone near the Syria-Turkey border so far. But no further withdrawals are imminent, according to a knowledgeable source. The military, remembering Trump’s December order out of Syria and subsequent reversal, is waiting to learn if Trump will follow through with withdrawal this time.A recently departed senior Pentagon official considered the pullout a “blatant betrayal” of the U.S.’ Kurdish partners that gives “carte blanche to Erdogan” for a widely forecast bloodletting. “It’s going to be a massacre, that’s clear,” the ex-official told The Daily Beast. “It’s fundamentally wrong. They destroyed the Caliphate.”But the Kurds are not entirely defenseless. Military leaders of the dominant group, known as the YPG or People’s Protection Units (and their female YPJ partners), already were in overdrive in September, preparing for what they had long anticipated—a possible betrayal by their closest ally, the United States.* * *DIGGING IN* * *Alongside every major highway and criss-crossing the entire Northern Syria area, in fields, cities and towns, we saw digging for an extensive system of tunnels. “We’re ready either way,” the Kurdish leaders told us when we asked if they trusted the Americans to keep the Turks at bay.Kurds don’t have much, but their spirit of freedom and their desire to protect their hard-won territory and what they see as their incipient democracy was evident everywhere in September as the YPG troops prepared for battle with a much better equipped foe—the Turkish armed forces, the second biggest military in NATO. But nobody who fought ISIS in Syria in one vicious battle after another has forgotten that the huge Turkish army stood by and did nothing against the Islamic State as its killers carried out genocidal campaigns against Yazidis and Shiites, while abducting, torturing, ransoming or beheading Americans, Europeans, and Japanese, among others. Through all that, NATO ally Turkey was not interested in intervention. Far from it.That was until the White House statement Sunday night, up to which the U.S. military denied Turkey the ability to operate in airspace over SDF controlled territory, effectively making it more difficult to enter Northern Syria to conduct the “terrorist cleansing operation” that Turks insist upon. They already carried out one such operation in Afrin, west of the Euphrates, in January 2018, displacing Kurds and effectively taking over the area, using what Kurds claim are former ISIS cadres to fight for them.Turks view the Northern Syria area of Rojava, and the YPG dominated SDF, as controlled by Kurdish PKK terrorists operating under another name—wolves in sheep’s clothing. Indeed, in times past—until 1998—PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan, lived freely in Syria and the father of the current Assad allowed him to train and equip his highly disciplined terrorist group for attacks into Turkey. It’s also true that over time, the various governing parties of Syria, Iraq and Iran have made use of PKK assaults on Turks as a way to exert pressure on Turkish politics. Turkey has suffered greatly from PKK terrorist attacks both inside Turkey and globally, and the PKK is clearly designated on the U.S. and EU’s list of terrorist organizations. In recent concessions to Turkey’s alarm over the SDF, a group they view as being in the hands of the PKK, the U.S. recently added additional individuals involved in the PKK to the U.S. State Department’s specially designated terrorist list. Turkey has also developed drones that fly over the Qandil mountains, in northern Iraq, making it easier to spot PKK movements and routinely send fighter jets to bomb them. In the case of northern Syria however, until President Trump’s announcement late Sunday night Washington time, the U.S. policy was to deny the Turks military incursions into territory where U.S. troops patrol and the U.S. military controls the airspace and claims by Turkey that the SDF is PKK have also been hotly disputed.While Turkey sees the SDF as dominated and led by a terrorist organization, the U.S. has a completely different perspective, viewing the YPG and SDF as valued allies in the fight against ISIS. Indeed, YPG and YPJ (Women’s People’s Protection Units) fighters lost over 1,000 lives fighting ISIS and it is common to see Kurdish men and women in Rojava on crutches, in wheelchairs and otherwise suffering from serious and lifelong injuries sustained in the battle to retake ISIS dominated areas, including Raqqa. While the rest of the world was silent, the YPG and YPJ can also take credit for going to the rescue of the Yazidis on Sinjar mountain in 2014, fighting to stop ISIS from carrying out a massive genocidal campaign in which ISIS cadres captured and enslaved countless Yazidi women, boys, and girls. The men were killed by ISIS, the boys killed or indoctrinated. The women and girls subsequently were raped and treated as chattel. But thousands were able to escape with YPG help.* * *THE PRISONERS* * *At present the SDF houses thousands of captured ISIS prisoners, holding the men in repurposed schools and prisons overflowing with former fighters and in camps similarly run at overcapacity for ISIS women and children. According to a March 2019 UN report, a total of 8,000 Islamic State fighters currently are held in SDF custody. In our recent visits to north and east Syria from May through August, relying on our primary intelligence sources, we were told that approximately 2,000 of these Islamic State prisoners were considered “foreign terrorist fighters” from North Africa, Europe, and the Americas.The same data was also corroborated in an August 2019 press release by the Office of the Spokesperson, Special Envoy of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, Ambassador James Jeffrey. Just under a 1,000 of the prisoners are believed to be Europeans. ICSVE has interviewed approximately five percent of those detained. Most appear to have become totally disillusioned, are exhausted from battle and prison and say they want to lay down arms. While there is no specific deradicalization or rehabilitation program applied to them at present and we have been requested by the SDF and also agreed to build one, it’s safe to say the majority are spontaneously deradicalizing and simply want to return home to their former lives after facing a judicial process.The SDF prisons are overcrowded and the SDF leadership repeatedly has expressed a need to ICSVE researchers for technical assistance in dealing with terrorist prisoners and for financial assistance to build at least five prisons. Riots and attempted jail breaks have occurred in SDF prisons holding foreign fighters. Likewise, recent news reporting shows over-capacity has prisoners sleeping next to each other on their sides to be able to fit into small and overcrowded rooms. Three detention centers holding ISIS women and children also are administered by the SDF: Camps Hol, Ain Issa and Roj. According to a UN Report as of April 2019 an estimated 75,000 women and children were being held. Our data suggests that at least 60,000 are Syrians and Iraqis. At least 8,000 children and 4,000 wives of foreign fighters remain in the camp.Women and children live in tents in these camps which are hot in the summer, freezing cold during winter, and leak cold rainwater as well. Dust blows around the camps causing breathing difficulties for some. Women and children have died of typhus, tent fires, and other dangers in the camps. Recently vaccinations have been offered, but many mothers don’t trust the program and refrain from having their children vaccinated. The women cook for themselves and complain that the food provided them lacks nutritious fruits and vegetables. Schools are lacking as well.All of the camps housing women have suffered from ISIS enforcers still dedicated to the group who require the other women to continue to cover themselves and punish those who speak out against them. These women have attacked other women, set their tents on fire, stolen their possessions, attacked, bitten, beaten and stabbed guards and have murdered other women creating a sense of chaos, constant danger and oppression in the camps. Recently a gun fight broke out in Camp Hol, with one woman killed and seven wounded.Foreign fighters from about 60 countries remain in SDF custody. We have interviewed foreign fighters who are nationals of the United States, Canada, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Dagestan, Turkey, Denmark, Russia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia, Indonesia, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Libya, Switzerland, Egypt, and Germany. * * *A TRIBUNAL?* * *While the SDF has struggled to contain the overflow of captured ISIS fighters, they have been frustrated by Turkish politics and threats to their very existence. In recent years with the Syrian uprising and rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the Turks saw it to be to their advantage to fund, train and equip Islamist rebels that they believed could keep the Kurdish independence movements in Syria in a weakened state or altogether destroyed. The Kurds, meanwhile, fought back in 2015 when ISIS invaded the city of Kobani on the Turkish border and rose up as a valiant on-the-ground force to repel the terrorists. The U.S. led coalition began arming and supplying the YPG and YPJ, and providing air cover, infusing the Kurds with a powerful sense of valor and military might that ultimately led to the complete territorial defeat of an Islamic State “Caliphate” that had taken as its motto “remain and expand.”ISIS is hardly a defeated foe however, with weekly sleeper cell attacks occurring in both Syria and Iraq and the likes of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi still making video and audio appeals to supporters around the world to reinstate the Caliphate, starting with breaking the ISIS prisoners out of captivity.The subject of ISIS captives is one of great importance to President Trump who repeatedly has threatened to release the roughly 12,000 ISIS foreign men, women and children prisoners held by the SDF in prisons and camps. Trump’s view is that each country has to take its citizens back, even countries like Sweden that lack a terrorism law under which to prosecute returnees, and countries like France, which already has a serious militant jihadi prison problem and fears any more potential ISIS cadres inside its penitentiaries. These countries have continued to tell the SDF that an international tribunal can be established in its territory to try ISIS prisoners in place. But the UN Counter Terrorism Directorate and U.S. State Department strongly disagree with this proposal and President Trump continues to tweet that he is simply going to release the prisoners to European countries refusing to repatriate them—even though it is the SDF, not Washington, that has them in custody.In a series of tweets on Monday, Trump claimed erroneously that most of the ISIS prisoners are foreigner terrorist fighters and seemed to ignore that ISIS, even when based far away in Syria, is a very real threat to U.S. citizens and interests. It is “time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home. WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN. Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds will now have to … figure the situation out, and what they want to do with the captured ISIS fighters in their “neighborhood.” They all hate ISIS, have been enemies for years. We are 7000 miles away and will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!”While arguments of who should be responsible to prosecute and hold ISIS prisoners can be made on both sides, in many ways Europe, Jordan and many other countries effectively did “flush the toilet” of their militant jihadi problem by allowing them to freely exit their countries to go fight in Syria, most of them ultimately joining ISIS. The U.S. at present repatriates all of its ISIS fighters bringing them to swift and sound justice at home.* * *ISIS AMBASSADOR TO TURKEY* * *Turkey also has a responsibility in the rise of ISIS, having allowed over 40,000 foreign fighters to cross over its border into Syria, many unabashedly on their way to join the Islamic State. Many prisoners tell us of Turkish complicity with their journey into ISIS-land and being wished well by border guards who winked as they crossed into Syria.Abu Mansour, a 36-year-old Moroccan ISIS emir interviewed by ICSVE in February 2019 in Iraqi prison, told us that he basically functioned as the ISIS ambassador to Turkey, negotiating border issues, the transfer of ISIS wounded into Turkey for treatment, the flow of foreign fighters across the Turkish border into ISIS territory, and other logistics. “The subject of Turkey is a very big one,” he said, “and the mutual interests include the obvious and the hidden.”“Their benefit was that it was a border area and we have a border strip with them,” Abu Mansour continued. “Security is one of them, and they wanted to control north of Syria.” The Turks wanted to control the entire border region in Syria and even into Iraq as far as Mosul, according to Abu Mansour, but they wanted to do it through a proxy force. “So, they wanted to find organizations that would do this favor for them, including terminating the presence of the Kurdish Workers Party [the PKK], without a direct interference from Turkey. At the same time, especially since they were part of NATO, they don’t want to anger NATO, because they need NATO.”By the same token, Turkish President Erdogan’s background as a committed Islamist created a certain sympathy, as did his ambition to revive in modern form the old Ottoman empire, Abu Mansour claimed. “The pretext of [controlling the] Kurdistan Workers’ Party [PKK] is a strong pretext for Turkey, but they have ambitions, as they have entered regions that don’t have PKK in them.” Abu Mansour explained the Turkish and ISIS relationship through his own experiences. In 2013, he said, he was assigned to receive the ISIS volunteers arriving in Turkey, but later, “I supervised the country entry operations, registration as a whole.” Then in 2015, he said, “I worked on external relations, relations with the Turkish intelligence. It started when I was at the borders.” First there was an agreement about passing the wounded from Syria into Turkey, about the border crossing and security arrangements. “Ambulances, especially in critical and serious situations, could go straight to the [border] gate,” said Abu Mansour. “Then a Turkish ambulance takes the case to the Turkish hospitals, and it is followed up inside Turkey. There was a hotline with intelligence who are located at the borders. Most places were available, [including] hospitals in Turkey [and] there was a technical staff of doctors who follow up the case in Turkey. The [Turkish] state was paying for certain operations performed in private hospitals, but most cases referred by the public hospitals were for free.”Abu Mansour said he had “face-to-face meetings with Turkish delegations. Sometimes they represented the intelligence services, sometimes the Turkish army, depending on the issue. “Most meetings were in Turkey on the border strip, but there were also meetings in Ankara and Gaziantep, depending on the issue,” said Abu Mansour. He would travel with a delegation of two or three ISIS people.”Referencing the easy relationship, as he saw it, between ISIS and the Turkish intelligence and military, Abu Mansour claimed, an ISIS emir could “go to Ankara without a problem. They always sent a car, or a bodyguard. At one point, we met weekly, depending on the issue and its importance to Turkey and to us, according to the demand.”The situation described by Abu Mansour raises a question: did the ultimate defeat of ISIS in fact deprive the Turks of the proxy buffer zone they wanted—which they are now invading Syria to establish?Abu Mansour recalled, “Turkey asked on many occasions for a safe zone.” This would be a demilitarized zone where it would provide ISIS with whatever it wanted, but only inside Syrian territories. According to Abu Mansour, , ISIS refused to grant it, and relations started to fall apart. Eventually, Turkey grew sick of the back and forth, and there was also a split in ISIS leadership, with one faction deciding it would take the terror war into Turkey with a 2016 bombing at Istanbul airport. At the time, Abu Mansour was in Gaziantep, Turkey, and the Turkish authorities told him they thought this was an orchestrated act to pressure Ankara. But he says that was not the case. The external security services of ISIS had started setting their own agenda, “carrying out operations everywhere,” Abu Mansour told us. “We reached a state in which they couldn’t care less about politics, and they worked like gangs, [and would] strike anywhere.”While Turkey continues to claim that the SDF, our strongest ally in fighting ISIS, is a terrorist dominated group, many questions remain about Turkey’s own complicity with ISIS. Given that during a bitterly fought war with ISIS, in which many Kurdish lives were lost, that the SDF managed to take control of the area, institute a functioning political system that included granting an impressive array of minority rights and rights to women, the SDF deserves our respect and protection.But U.S. President Donald Trump has put a price on all this. “The Kurds fought with us,” he tweeted, “but were paid massive amounts of money and equipment to do so.” That they saved countless lives in the process, including American lives, does not seem to have been a factor.Spencer Ackerman also contributed reporting to this article.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Luca Marini ha sido el más rápido en una apretadísima sesión de entrenamientos en la categoría de Moto2. La igualdad ha sido máxima, hasta el punto de que tan solo nueve décimas han separado a los 24 primeros clasificados de la sesión. Se espera que la lucha por la pole position y por la victoria sea muy dura.
El héroe del día ha sido el piloto local Somkiat Chantra, que ha terminado segundo a tan solo ocho décimas de Marini. El tailandés está especialmente motivado en la carrera de casa y se ha repuesto incluso de una avería mecánica que le dejó tirado en los primeros compases de la sesión. Veremos cuánto dura el empuje de Chantra.
Álex Márquez fue cuarto y Augusto Fernández octavo
En cuanto a la batalla por el título, actuación discreta de los dos aspirantes. Álex Márquez terminó cuarto, a menos de una décima de Marini, mientras que Augusto Fernández cayó hasta la octava posición, pero a una décima y poco. La igualdad es máxima y hasta la clasificación de mañana no podremos sacar mejores conclusiones.
También han tenido un buen día en el equipo Stop and Go. Tetsuta Nagashima fue el más rápido por la mañana, aunque no pudo mejorar en la segunda sesión. Aún así, el japonés parece uno de los pilotos más fuertes en Buriram. Su compañero, el australiano Remy Gardner, ha hecho el tercer mejor tiempo por la tarde, postulándose como candidato a la victoria.
Muy buenos entrenamientos para Iker Lecuona, sexto clasificado y mejor KTM en pista. El piloto español ha adelantado por apenas milésimas a Brad Binder, que se quedó con el séptimo mejor tiempo de la sesión. De todos modos parece que las KTM tienen aquí ritmo para estar al nivel de las Kalex.
Ha estado un poco más atrás, aunque pegado en los tiempos, Jorge Navarro, que se metió noveno. El piloto de Speed Up quiere conseguir por fin la primera victoria de la temporada y en Buriram va a tener otra buena ocasión. También está en zona de Q2 el español Jorge Martín, que ha aprovechado el ritmo de KTM para meterse duodécimo.
Un poco decepcionante ha sido la actuación de Thomas Luthi, quien cada vez está más lejos de poder ser un aspirante real al título. El suizo ha sido decimocuarto, ahora mismo sería el último piloto clasificado para la Q2, pero tendrá que mejorar mucho si no quiere que su candidatura se vaya apagando poco a poco.
Por último, Xavi Vierge fue el único español en quedarse fuera de los puestos que dan acceso directo para la Q2. El piloto catalán ha sido vigesimosegundo, a seis décimas del tiempo de Luca Marini. Vierge parece que está mentalmente distraído, quizá ya pensando en la siguiente temporada, en la que competirá con el Petronas.

Las Yamaha tienen una velocidad endiablada en Tailandia. Es una de las conclusiones que se pueden sacar de los primeros entrenamientos libres de Buriram, pero no la única. Fabio Quartararo ha marcado el mejor tiempo de la sesión en una vuelta fantástica con el reloj a cero. Lidera un triplete de Yamaha fantástico en lo alto de la tabla.
Sin embargo, no todo son alegrías. Y eso se debe a que Marc Márquez ha volado en los segundos entrenamientos libres. El piloto español no ha probado en ningún momento el neumático más blando, simplemente se ha limitado a ensayar su ritmo de carrera y éste ha sido demoledor. Márquez ha dado 25 vueltas perfectas a un ritmo casi inaccesible para el resto.
Márquez solo probó el ritmo de carrera y fue demoledor
Lo que está claro es que Márquez no está demasiado dolorido por su caída de este mañana. Su mejor tiempo se ha quedado a seis décimas del que ha marcado Quartararo, pero hay que tener en cuenta que lo ha hecho con un neumático que llevaba prácticamente una carrera entera encima. Aún así, Márquez ha sido sexto y es el gran favorito para la pole y la victoria.
Pero las Yamaha van a estar fuertes. Ya el año pasado, cuando las cosas no iban tan bien, Maverick Viñales aguantó el ritmo de Márquez toda la carrera. Esta vez el piloto español ha terminado segundo, a tan solo una décima del tiempo de Quartararo. Veremos si ambos pueden aguantar el ritmo de la Honda.
Para cerrar la fiesta de Yamaha, Franco Morbidelli ha terminado con el tercer mejor tiempo de la sesión. Parece que aquí el italiano sí que está al nivel de sus compañero. El único que no ha podido completar el pleno de Yamaha es Valentino Rossi, que aún así no se ha ido mucho más atrás. 'Il Dottore' ha sido quinto.
Quien se ha colado por medio de las Yamaha es el australiano Jack Miller, que ha sorprendido con un gran tiempo que le coloca cuarto y como primera Ducati. De hecho, en general las motos italianas no han destacado demasiado en toda la sesión. Andrea Dovizioso, el que debe evitar el título de Márquez, ha terminado octavo, mientras que Danilo Petrucci fue undécimo.
Otra de las sorpresas positivas del día ha sido Aleix Espargaró. El piloto de Aprilia se ha metido séptimo, justo por detrás de Márquez, en un circuito donde no era esperado. Espargaró fue muy rápido en Aragón hace quince días, pero era algo que se podía esperar en un circuito favorable. Sin embargo parece que la tónica se mantiene aquí en Chang.
Su hermano Pol Espargaró también ha tenido un buen día. Al menos ha podido participar en los entrenamientos libres y lo ha hecho sin demasiados dolores. El piloto de KTM ha terminado decimoquinto, incluso dentro de lo que serían las posiciones de puntos, aunque los problemas podrían venir en carrera.
Problemas para su compañero de marca, Miguel Oliveira, que ha sufrido dos caídas bastante fuertes, una en cada sesión. Aún así el portugués parece que está bien y ha sido decimonoveno, por delante de sus otros dos compañeros de marca, Mika Kallio y Hafizh Syahrin, que han sido los dos más lentos del día.
Aunque también ha estado en esa deshonrosa batalla Jorge Lorenzo, que ha terminado antepenúltimo a 1,5 segundos de su compañero Márquez. En cuanto a las Suzuki, siguen en un momento complicado, y la poca potencia de su motor no ayuda. Joan Mir ha sido noveno y Álex Rins décimo. Por último, Tito Rabat terminó en la decimoctava posición.

هوية الدولة مبنية على مدى الحياة، وربما ليس من المستغرب أن يكون هناك تغيير طفيف في نتائج هذه العملية الفرعية. عندما يتعلق الأمر بالتأثير الثقافي، لا تزال أوروبا هي القائد الواضح. احتلت إيطاليا مرة أخرى المرتبة الأولى، حيث احتلت إيطاليا بتقاليد الطهي والفن الكلاسيكي وملابس المصممين، حيث احتلت المراكز الخمسة الأولى، كما فعلت في العام الماضي. بقيت البلدان العشرة الأولى على حالها، مع سويسرا، رقم 9 ، أستراليا، رقم 8 ، والبرازيل، رقم 7، تغيير ترتيب العام الماضي.
إيطاليا التي يعيش فيها قانونيا أكثر من 60،6 مليون نسمة، بلد يقع جنوب وسط أوروبا، وتمتد حدوده على شكل التمهيد إلى البحر الأبيض المتوسط. تجعل المدن التاريخية في البلاد والمأكولات ذات الشهرة العالمية والجمال الجغرافي وجهة شهيرة لأكثر من 40 مليون سائح كل عام. الأمة هي موطن لجبل إتنا، أطول بركان في أوروبا وأكثرها نشاطًا، وتضم دولتين داخل حدودها ء الفاتيكان وسان مارينو.
في حين أن الولايات المتحدة قد لا تكون مرتبطة دائمًا بالحياة المتطورة، فإن صناعة الوسائط والترفيه التي تبلغ تكلفتها 735 مليار دولار هي الأكبر في العالم، حيث تمثل ثلث الصناعة العالمية.
البرازيل، وهي مركز قوي لكرة القدم، تتمتع بأكبر اقتصاد في أمريكا اللاتينية، البلد الوحيد في أمريكا الجنوبية الذي يحتل المرتبة العشرة الأولى.
بينما المكسيك هي ثاني أعلى دولة في أمريكا اللاتينية، حيث تحتل المرتبة 26.
وتعد اليابان وسنغافورة من جديد من الدول الآسيوية الوحيدين اللتين لديهما مكان في أعلى 15.
البلدان التي كانت تتمتع بإمبراطورية أو سلطة عظيمة ذات مرة على أرض كبيرة لم يكن لها بالضرورة تأثير قوي. وجاءت البرتغال، التي كانت ذات يوم تحكم الأراضي من أمريكا الجنوبية إلى إفريقيا، في المرتبة 24، بينما جاءت روسيا في المرتبة 20.
لم يجد المجيبون على الاستطلاع سوى تأثير ضئيل من الأنظمة ذات الميول الاستبدادي. تعرضت كل من كازاخستان وباكستان، وهما الدولتان الأخيران في القائمة، لانتقادات من قبل جماعات حقوق الإنسان مثل "منظمة العفو الدولية" و"هيومن رايتس ووتش" لقمعهما حرية التعبير والمعارضة السياسية. وأخيرا، بلغاريا في المركز الثالث من أسفل الترتيب.
|Cache||Posiblemente el mejor disco sea Back in Black pero no se puede negar que en Australia los Oils son una referencia nacional. Quizás el hecho de considerarlos genuinamente Aussies (frente al componente británico de los ACDC, aunque nadie puede negar que la banda es australiana) pueda haber favorecido a los Oils. Para mi, ambas bandas son impresionantes. Incluso reconozco que pueda considerarse mejor el disco Back in Black como mejor disco de rock australiano (en cuanto sonido y estilo), pues los Oils (que habían comenzado con el surf-rock, una especie de punk australiano) se alejaban del hard rock con Diesel and Dust. Sin embargo, ese disco en cuanto a mensaje y letras es 100% Australia, con referencias directas al debate nacional que en los años 80 tuvo lugar allí en torno a los aborigenes, los australianos originales. Lo de los Oils es rock político y ahí ganan por goleada incluso a la mejor banda de rock de la historia.|

Climate protesters gathered around a boat at Oxford Circus during a coordinated protest by the Extinction Rebellion group in April.
The movement uses a circled hourglass, known as the extinction symbol, to serve as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species. From rebellion.eart#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/5450&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comh:
Since its launch, XR has quickly gained national and international following, taking it to the streets in mass demonstrations, demanding immediate action from their national parliaments and governments.
For their branding, the organization uses a custom, rounded version of Futura Condensed named Fucxed. Initially used in lowercase for the XR logo, a caps-only version is used across the globe on banners, websites and social media. In comparison to other recent peoples movements such as the (anti-)Brexit protests, or the Women’s Marches, there is a remarkably uniform and consistent branding in the messages from Extinction Rebellion in outlets from social media to worldwide demonstrations.

It has facts to arm you, stories to empower you, pages to fill in and pages to rip out, alongside instructions on how to rebel – from organising a roadblock to facing arrest.” Note the clever use of the (suggestedly extinct) publisher’s logo penguin as a cover illustration.

The new U.S.-Japan trade deal will provide staged reduction of Japanese tariffs for more than $2 billion (1.63 billion pounds) worth of U.S. beef and pork, matching access now granted to the 11 Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact countries, a text of the agreement shows. U.S. President Donald Trump presided over a White House signing ceremony on Monday for the final text of the limited bilateral trade pact, more then 2-1/2 years after he pulled the United States out of the much broader TPP. The move left U.S. farmers and food producers at a disadvantage in the Japanese market to competitors from Australia, New Zealand and Canada, and the U.S.-Japan deal aims to even that playing field by cutting Japanese tariffs on many of those products.

We may only be one episode in to the second season of Love Island Australia, but the drama has already begun.
That's right, according to influencer Christie Swadling, she was "dumped" by current contestant Maurice Salib in order for him to appear on the show.
Taking to YouTube today to dish the dirt, Christie alleged she had been in a relationship with Maurice until he broke things off "out of the blue" just two weeks before he left for filming.
While she says he had told her he "couldn't prioritise" the relationship due to work commitments, she believes he concealed his true intentions from her.
Although Maurice filmed an ad for the series while still dating Christie, she says he told her he was simply appearing on it as an actor, rather than a contestant. It's unclear whether this was an outright lie on his part, or if he was not approached about going on the show until later down the track.
Adding insult to injury, Maurice's bio on Love Island's official website states he has been single for "six months". Although it's unclear exactly when he started seeing Christie or how long they were together for, her loved up Insta snaps featuring him date back to May. As Christie herself put it, "nice try buddy, but I document my whole life."
As much as Christie says she was shocked to discover Maurice was appearing on the show, she still admits that he "not a bad person."
"I know his intentions were never to hurt me. . . in the relationship, I knew that he put himself first and that he did want fame," she said.
"There definitely is a chance he was just thinking about himself and really wanted to go on the show."
Well, time will tell if Maurice's decision pays off!
Up until the last five minutes of the Love Island Australia premiere, it would appear that the episode had been pretty run-of-the-mill. All the initial couples had been paired off, and although some contestants had expressed having a wandering eye, nothing had been done to truly rock the boat. That was until 'Irish stallion' Eoghan walked in, of course.
Before he'd even stepped foot into the villa, Eoghan had declared that the competition had "enough boys" and that a "man [was] here". Although it may have been easy to assume that this was all talk, it was clear from the moment the ladies set eyes on him that Eoghan is well and truly one to watch.
"He's the hunk I've been waiting for," declared Cartier, while several of the guys could be heard exclaiming that they were in trouble. It seems they were right to be concerned, as not only did Eoghan make an impression from his appearance alone, but he certainly upped the ante in a game of truth or dare. He kissed not one, but two coupled up women, including Vanessa, who had already shared a smooch with her current partner Matthew.
With Eoghan having seemingly caught the eye of half the women in the villa, it's safe to say night two went from zero to one hundred very quickly.
Now that we know Eoghan will have had to steal one of the already coupled up women by the end of the next episode, it's safe to say we can't wait to see how this one pans out.
Check out a snippet of Eoghan's memorable entrance below.
We may only be one episode into the new season of Love Island Australia, but already sparks have been flying between several of the newly coupled up contestants. So much so, but us viewers were witness to not one, but two first kisses on tonight's premiere. The first between Maurice and Jessie, and the second shared by Matthew and Vanessa.
It was clear from the get-go that Matthew was more than a little interested in Vanessa. Since she had already coupled up with Sam by the time he arrived, it would have been easy for Matthew to pass up the opportunity to be with her in order not to rock the boat. But, it seems Matt is a man who goes after what he wants, as he instead chose to relegate Sam to the sit out bench in order to be with Vanessa himself.
Choosing to whisk Vanessa away from her original partner is not the only bold move he made on day one, however. Rather, he also decided he didn't want to be "stuck in the friend zone," and thus went in for a cheeky kiss.
As much as Vanessa had initially said that she hadn't wanted to kiss anyone so soon, it certainly appears their chemistry was undeniable. While it's still early days, it's safe to say Matt and Vanessa are one of the strongest couples in the villa. . . so far, at least!
Check out their first kiss below.

Carter, David O. (2005) Forensic taphonomy: processes associated with cadaver decomposition in soil. PhD thesis, James Cook University.Cache
|A series of laboratory and field incubations were carried out where juvenile rat (Rattus rattus) cadavers were buried in three soils of contrasting texture from tropical savanna ecosystems in Queensland, Australia. This work was done in order to develop an understanding of the effect of environmental variables (temperature, moisture), the soil in which a cadaver is buried and the nature of the cadaver on the processes associated with cadaver decomposition in soil. A pattern of mass loss comprised of an “Early Phase” of slow mass loss, “Intermediate Phase” of rapid mass loss and a “Late Phase” of slow mass loss. Early Phase decomposition coincided with an initial increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) evolution, microbial biomass carbon (Cmic), phosphodiesterase activity, protease activity and soil pH. Microbial activity was triggered within 24 hours of cadaver burial and this initial flush of activity was likely due to both soil-borne and cadaveric microbes. Intermediate Phase decomposition was typically associated with peak levels of CO2 evolution, Cmic, phosphodiesterase activity and soil pH. Late Phase decomposition typically coincided with a slowing down of process rates. In some cases, however, peak levels of protease activity were observed during late phase decomposition.
The rate of cadaver decomposition increased with an increase in temperature and moisture. However, the rate of cadaver decomposition was slowed at a matric potential of –0.3 megapascals (MPa) in coarse-textured soil and a matric potential of –0.01 MPa in fine-textured soil. Temperature and moisture also had similar effects on CO2 evolution, Cmic, protease activity, phosphodiesterase activity and soil pH. In addition, the soil matrix and the soil microbial biomass had a significant effect on cadaver decomposition. The rate of cadaver decomposition following burial in soil was greater than when a cadaver was exposed to a sterile, soil-free environment. Furthermore, cadaver decomposition was greatest in sandy soil. These phenomena were likely due to a greater rate of gas diffusion associated with sandy soil and the activity of aerobic microorganisms. The activity of aerobic decomposers was reflected as a significant relationship between CO2 evolution and cadaver mass loss.
The structure of the soil microbial community determined by analysis of phospholipid fatty acids (PLFAs) was affected by the presence of a cadaver. However, soil type and seasonal variation in temperature and moisture had a much greater effect on the soil microbial community. In addition, the current study provided more evidence to show that the structure of the soil microbial community can be related to the function (protease, phosphodiesterase activity) of the soil microbial community. Furthermore, temporal changes in the microbial community of gravesoils were also observed.
Te results from the laboratory incubations were used to interpret the results from the field incubations. However, some results differed between laboratory and field settings. The rate of cadaver mass loss was greater in a field setting. Also, cadaver decomposition was greatest in sandy soil in the laboratory while cadaver mass loss was greatest in clay soil in the field. Moreover, changes in soil pH and the concentration of ammonium were less in a field setting.
The current thesis has demonstrated that the introduction of a cadaver into the soil can have a significant effect on the biological and chemical characteristics of soils. In turn, this phenomenon can be affected by environmental variables, the soil in which a cadaver is placed and the nature of the cadaver. Biological and chemical measurements conducted in the current study hold potential for forensic applications, including markers of clandestine graves and a basis for the estimation of postmortem and postburial intervals.|

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is scheduled to sign a limited trade agreement Monday with Japan, a deal that would win back benefits American farmers lost when Trump pulled out of a broader Asia-Pacific pact his first week in office.
U.S. farmers have been operating at a disadvantage in Japan since Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which had been negotiated by the Obama administration. The other 11 Pacific Rim countries, including big farm producers such as New Zealand and Canada, went ahead without the United States and were enjoying preferential treatment in Japan.
The Washington wheat industry welcomed the agreement when it was first announced last month. Japan traditionally has been among the biggest importers of the region’s wheat.
“The main thing is it gets us to an equal footing with our competitors as far as a price standpoint. This is just great news,” Michelle Hennings, executive director of the Washington Association of Wheat Growers, said at the time.
Trump earlier had put Washington wheat markets in jeopardy when he decided in 2017 to pull the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which put U.S. wheat farmers at a graduating trade disadvantage to both Canada and Australia.
While rewarding American farmers, the new U.S.-Japan mini-deal does not resolve differences over trade in autos. Trump has said the two countries continue to work on a more comprehensive agreement.
Trump has threatened to impose import taxes on foreign autos, claiming they pose a threat to U.S. national security. At the U.N. general assembly, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that Trump had assured him that a previous agreement to spare Japan from new auto tariffs still stood.
But Japanese automakers were disappointed that the United States kept existing auto tariffs at 2.5%.
The limited trade pact also includes market-opening commitments on $40 billion worth of digital trade between the two countries.
Trump has long complained by America’s large trade deficit with Japan, which came to $58 billion last year. Japan is the world’s third-biggest economy behind the United States and China.
The president was set to sign the deal at the White House Monday afternoon.
The news might sound familiar. The deal was first announced at the August Group of 7 summit in Biarritz, France. At the UN gathering last month, the two countries signed an agreement-in-principle. On Monday, Trump was scheduled to sign the final text.

|Cache||I was going to write about music but an e-mail from Rassa was about Miss Fury and I had no idea who Miss Fury was.|
MISS FURY was a comic book about the superhero Miss Fury. June Tarpe Mills created the character and the comic book. Who? From TARPEMILLS.COM:
June Tarpe Mills, known professionally as Tarpe Mills, rose from obscurity to become the creator of the world's first female comic heroine with the publication of Miss Fury six months before the creation of Wonder Woman. Tarpe Mills’ tremendous artistic talent poured onto the print page with action, glamour and fashion, and sexiness that was unheard of until Miss Fury. Tarpe Mills and her work has been memorialized by her July 19, 2019, induction into the Eisner Comic Hall of Fame at ComicCon SanDiego.
From AMAZON, a look at Miss Fury:
From the visuals alone, you have to wonder why, in the '00s, someone didn't cast Annette Benning or Catharine Zeta Jones or Halle Berry or Michelle Pfeiffer as Miss Fury in a film of the same name? Today, you could add Keira Knightly, Kerry Washington, Natalie Portman, Isabela Moner and Anne Hathaway to the list. Some might argue that you'd have to set the film in the forties. You wouldn't 'have to,' but even if you did, are you forgetting that both the Captain America film (2011) and the Wonder Woman film (2017) were set in that period and both were huge hits?
This is from WIKIPEDIA:
The Bell Syndicate first published the Miss Fury comic strip (then titled The Black Fury) on April 6, 1941, predating the first appearance of Wonder Woman by six months. The strip "ran in full color in the Sunday comics pages for 351 consecutive weeks from 1942 through 1949, and was also collected in comic book form by Timely Comics." Circulation included over 100 newspapers at its most popular stage. As the Miss Fury strip became more popular, it eventually became public knowledge its creator was a woman.
Miss Fury, the alter ego of socialite Marla Drake, was a character based loosely on Mills' own appearance.
During World War II, "Miss Fury" was painted on the nose of three American warplanes in Europe and the South Pacific. Two of the recurring villains were the Nazi agents Erica Von Kampf and General Bruno. Mills' own white Persian cat Perri-Purr was introduced in the strip, and during World War II Perri-Purr became an unofficial mascot of the American troops.
The artwork was created in a glamorous style with considerable attention placed on the heroine's outfits. These outfits varied from lacy evening gowns and lingerie to bathing suits and athletic costumes. Mills' attention to fashion in Miss Fury was mirrored in the work of her contemporary Dalia Messick's "Brenda Starr," and in this sense the women were ahead of their male counterparts who typically "dressed [their] heroines in plain red dresses."
Cut-out paper fashion dolls were included for the first time in the comic-book reprints of Miss Fury, leading Trina Robbins to guess that these books were intended for a female audience. Mills sent paper dolls to young women who had written fan mail requesting art.
Miss Fury was notoriously full of "kinkiness," including “whips, spike heels, female-on-female violence, and lingerie scenes.” One character's costume in a 1947 publication "was so daring that 37 newspapers cancelled the strip” that day. A bathing scene from the tenth Miss Fury Sunday page on June 8, 1941 ran in newspapers at the time but was later excluded from the 1942 Timely Comics reprint.
Trina Robbins said on Miss Fury:
Mills' art in Miss Fury was modeled on the work of Milton Caniff. Her portrayal of action across multiple panels, as well as the natural poses and facial expressions of her characters, has been described as "cinematic," echoing the film-noire style. Mills' characters also possessed a "pinup quality."
Dean Mullaney, editor and publisher behind Eclipse Enterprises, wrote that “[Mills’] art is drawn very traditionally—no surprises, no ah-ha moments.”
Evie Nagy for The Los Angeles Review of Books remarked that “the flow of Mills’s sequential art feels completely organic."
June Mills' legacy as the first woman to create a female action hero in comics was contextualized by Victoria Ingalls for the American Psychological Association. Out of a list of hundreds of female “superheroes” surveyed in her abstract, Ingalls identified only eleven as being created by a woman not working in a team with a male writer. Mills' Marla Drake is the chronological first of these eleven heroes.
According to Mike Madrid in his book The Supergirls, Marla Drake belongs to the “Debutante” caste of early comics female heroines, who include Sandra Knight (Phantom Lady), Dianne Grayton(Spider Widow), Diana Adams (Miss Masque), and Brenda Banks (Lady Luck). These characters form a ‘sorority’ of heiresses and socialites who had been forced into lives of propriety, submission, and “tedious leisure.” “Putting on a cape and mask liberated these women” to embrace their own identities, fight crime, and trade their “entitled boredom” for thrills.
Madrid wrote, “Mills’ approach to a secret identity seemed more realistic, injected with a feminine practicality.”
This is from an article at Australia's ABC:
Comics then and now tend to feature weak-kneed female characters who seem to exist for the sole purpose of being saved by a male hero — or, worse still, are "fridged", a contemporary comic book colloquialism that refers to the gruesome slaying of an undeveloped female character to deepen the hero's motivation and propel him on his journey.
But Mills believed there was room in comics for a different kind of female character, one who was able, level-headed and capable, mingling tough-minded complexity with Mills' own taste for risqué behaviour and haute couture gowns.
Where Wonder Woman's powers are "marvellous" — that is, not real or attainable — Miss Fury and her alter ego Marla Drake use their collective brains, resourcefulness and the odd stiletto heel in the face to bring the villains to justice.
And for a time they were wildly successful.
Miss Fury ran a full decade from April 1941 to December 1951, was syndicated in 100 different newspapers at the height of her wartime fame, and sold a million copies an issue in reprints released by Timely (now Marvel) comics.
Fighter pilots painted Miss Fury on the fuselage of bomber planes. Young girls played with paper doll cut outs featuring her extensive high fashion wardrobe.
From Australia's ABC -- emphasize. Point being, Miss Fury was not known just in the US. She had wide appeal. So why isn't Miss Fury on the big screen?
"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Friday, October 4, 2019. Protests continue in Iraq while, in the US, Joe Biden continues to tarnish the legacy of Barack Obama.
Last week, Sarah Chayes, "Hunter Biden’s Perfectly Legal, Socially Acceptable Corruption" was published by THE ATLANTIC. Yesterday on MORNING EDITION (NPR), Sarah spoke with David Green:
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
The impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is drawing attention to the questionable activities of more than one major political family. Former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter are under scrutiny for Hunter's work in the Ukrainian energy industry.
The writer Sarah Chayes is the author of the book "Thieves Of The State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security" (ph). And she argues this scrutiny is a good thing.
SARAH CHAYES: You know, when the son of a vice president gets a job in a field he knows nothing about while his father is vice president in a country that just had a revolution that, you know, typically, in that part of the world, post-revolution, all the oligarchs steal all the crown jewels, and the industry is one of the crown jewels - that is to say, gas - since when is that doing nothing wrong?
GREENE: Now, wrong does not necessarily mean illegal, Sarah Chayes told me. But she said too often these days, people with political ties or prominent political names are getting involved where they shouldn't be.
CHAYES: Almost any senior name that I start researching, I run into practices like this. It is extraordinarily widespread. And that's my question. How did we all convince ourselves that this isn't corrupt? And it seems to me that we're not going to recover, you know, even an approximation of the ideals on which we were founded as a nation unless each of us, as citizens, begins to make it less comfortable for our political and economic leaders to behave this way.
GREENE: Well, let me ask you this, then. If it is not unusual, why focus on this case of Hunter Biden and Joe Biden specifically?
CHAYES: Because it's in the news and because of the word that I kept seeing apply in this context, which is, no wrongdoing, or, they didn't do anything wrong. And I'm looking at that, saying, what? And if we can say that now, in this context, then there's something awry.
From her article at THE ATLANTIC:
When allegations of ethical lapses or wrongdoing surface against people on one side of the aisle, they can always claim that someone on the other side has done far worse. But taken together, all of these examples have contributed to a toxic norm. Joe Biden is the man who, as a senator, walked out of a dinner with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Biden was one of the most vocal champions of anticorruption efforts in the Obama administration. So when this same Biden takes his son with him to China aboard Air Force Two, and within days Hunter joins the board of an investment advisory firm with stakes in China, it does not matter what father and son discussed. Joe Biden has enabled this brand of practice, made it bipartisan orthodoxy. And the ethical standard in these cases—people’s basic understanding of right and wrong—becomes whatever federal law allows. Which is a lot.
To quote THELMA & LOUISE, "You get what you settle for." Is that what we're willing to settle for as a society? Corruption and lack of ethics? Or do we have standards that we apply across the board? Basic expectations from our public servants?
Situational ethics will never root out corruption.
Or is it this maybe?? Because let’s face it: Joe Biden’s son Hunter failed rehab 5 times, got kicked out of the Navy, dated his sister in law, and left a crack pipe in a rental car. The idea Hunter got a job getting paid $50,000 a month should strike everyone as suspicious.
The crack pipe?
That gets back to the Biden pass. His niece Caroline physically attacks a police officer and is arrested. She gets a pass, no time. A few years later, the niece steals over $100,000 and, again, no time sentenced, no time served. Hunter and his crack pipe?
Yea, because smoking crack isint a crime. "Prescott Police Department officials were unable to reach Hunter Biden and, after an investigation, declined to prosecute"
And, again, campaign staff insists Hunter is the father of the child that he's denying is hit, the one the mother is suing him for. These are the values of the Biden family. These are the values we want in the White House?
Two kinds of justice -- the ones for everyone else and the ones for the Bidens?
America deserves much better than that.
And what the media and the Joe-bots don't get, the American people do. MEDIAITE notes:
It's time for Joe to go.
It's no longer just about him.
Corrupt Joe makes it that much harder to call Donald Trump out for any corruption.
Corrupt Joe is tainting Barack Obama's legacy with every day.
What Joe allowed his family to get away with while he was Vice President?
That reflects poorly on Joe. It also reflects on Barack. And there's a lot more to come on that issue. Joe is harming Barack's legacy.
It's time for Joe to go.
He offers nothing that is needed and seems to believe it's 1996. He's out of touch, he's out of date and he's corrupt. He needs to go.
Turning to Iraq . . .
The death toll from days of violent demonstrations across Iraq has risen to 44 as unrest rapidly spread across the country despite a plea for calm from the prime minister.
In an overnight TV address, Adel Abdul-Mahdi said he understood the frustration of the public but there was no “magic solution” to Iraq’s problems. He pledged to make reforms, but this drew a scornful response from demonstrators.
REUTERS plays 'even handed' and head up the ass. Why? Maybe so they can continue to cover Iraq. It's not like the western press isn't intimidated and bullied by the Iraqi government.
That's been going on openly since 2006.
UN urges Iraq to probe protest deaths ‘transparently’ National News en.nationalhaber.com/un-urges-iraq-#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/21416&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com…
Mahdi is so inept as a prime minister that the president of Iraq has dominated the news for over six months. The presidency is a symbolic office in Iraq. It has no real power, pure ceremony. But that's how weak Mahdi is and how desperate the western press has been to ignore reality in Iraq.
A non-functioning prime minister? Well, hey, just report on the doings of the president and pretend like he's the leader of the country.

|Cache||Peru has a new MVNO in the form of *Cuy Movil*, which launched on 1 October over the *Claro Peru* network. The youth-orientated virtual operator received a licence from the *Ministry of Transport and Communications (Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones, MTC)* back in January 2018, and went on to secure a wholesale deal with Claro in April that year. CEO Mariano de Osma told Gestion.pe#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/24773&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com that he expects the newcomer to sign up 40,000 customers within its first year of operation.
Sticking with Peru, *Tuenti Movil*, the *Movistar Peru* sub-brand that launched back in October 2014, will be discontinued as of 13 October. As a result, all 150,000 Tuenti customers will be migrated onto Movistar’s ‘value proposition’ tariff. Luis Villalobos, director of the cellco’s pre-paid segment, commented: ‘Customers and their experience with our services are at the centre of our priorities. In that line, thinking of simplifying the value offer focused on the satisfaction of our users, it has been decided that Movistar is the brand that serves Tuenti customers in Peru.’
*Soy Movil* (legally known as *Telenort Soluciones Integrales*) is the latest virtual operator to enter the increasingly crowded Spanish MVNO market. The Cantabria-based company is offering a dual 4G/fibre proposition, with both services offered over the *Grupo MASMOVIL* network.
*edpnet*, a Belgian full-service B2B provider which also has a presence in the Netherlands, has reportedly relaunched its MVNO business over the *Orange Belgium* network, replacing its existing arrangement with *Telenet*. The network switch has been made possible as a result of edpnet’s February 2019 takeover of *Galaxy Group*, a Dutch firm active within the corporate segment. Galaxy Group operates a pair of MVNOs – *Galaxy Mobile Solutions* in Belgium and *Galaxy Business Networks* in the Netherlands – and edpnet has inherited what COO Joachim Slabbaert describes as ‘a very good MVNO contract with Orange’.
Over in Hungary, local news portal HWSW reports that *UPC Hungary* stopped selling new mobile products on 1 October, following the telco’s 31 July takeover by *Vodafone Group* – owner of local player *Vodafone Hungary*. Since September 2019 UPC and Vodafone have been offering discounts on fixed/mobile bundles instead, ahead of a planned swap-over from UPC to Vodafone branding, which is expected to take place in April 2020. TeleGeography notes that UPC Mobil launched in November 2014 and claimed around 120,000 subscribers as of 30 June 2019.
Meanwhile, the shutdown of *Cyta Mobile* in Greece has been postponed from 30 September 2019 until 31 October 2019 ‘in order to better serve former Cyta customers’, new owner *Vodafone Greece* has announced. The move follows the EUR117 million (USD152 million) takeover of Cypriot-owned alternative fixed line and broadband operator *Cyta Hellas* by Vodafone in July 2018. Cyta Hellas, which launched its Cyta Mobile MVNO service in July 2014, using the network of its now-parent Vodafone Greece network, represented one of the country’s few notable MVNOs.
In an article published by the News Corp Australia Network last month, a pair of the country’s newer MVNO entrants have issued updates regarding their respective subscriber uptake. *Pennytel*, which targets regional Australia, with a particular focus on the over-50s market, has notched up 10,000 customers since its February 2018 relaunch over the *Telstra* network. Meanwhile, *Moose Mobile*, which targets the youth segment with refurbished handsets, has signed up 35,000 users since it launched over the *Optus* network in May 2017. Moose Mobile chief executive officer Dean Lwin commented: ‘Consumers haven’t heard of these smaller brands, so they don’t trust them, but if you look for deals with no contract term there’s really nothing to lose, except the chance to save some big money.’
US mobile giant *Sprint* has informed Fierce Wireless that by mid-September its 5G network was made available for MVNO use in Chicago. Going forward, by end-October the cellco expects to have 5G activated for MVNOs in all nine of its operational 5G markets, which also include Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC.
Kosovo’s telecoms watchdog the *Regulatory Authority for Post and Electronic Communications (Autoriteti Rregullator i Komunikimeve Elektronike dhe Postare, ARKEP)* has ruled that subscribers to services provided by MVNO *Dardafon*, which operates under the *Z Mobile* brand, will be transferred to network host *Telecom Kosovo (TK)*, along with the numbering resources currently assigned to the reseller. The handover is due to take place at the end of a 120-day transition period following TK’s decision in July this year not to renew its MVNO agreement with Z Mobile, with which the state-owned telco is embroiled in a prolonged legal dispute. ARKEP explained its decision, stating that it sought to ensure that customers would not have their service interrupted. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Z Mobile claimed 234,480 subscribers at the end of June 2019, equivalent to around 12.5% of the total mobile market at that date.
Finally, the *Danish Energy Agency (DEA, or Energistyrelsen)* has approved a request by *Lebara Denmark* to apply a roaming surcharge to its customers in order to cover any potential losses when its customers roam in the EU. The watchdog cites ‘special and exceptional circumstances’, namely the fact that the MVNO has documented a ‘negative retail roaming profit of more than 3%’ since the rule change. Since 15 June 2017 telecoms companies have not been able to legally charge for roaming in the EU, and consumers therefore pay the same price for using their mobile phone in other EU countries as they do at home.

|Cache||Kiss Makes Big Splash By Performing Concert For Sharks HuffPost|
OTTAWA—Six party leaders squared off in a sometimes frenzied, sometimes humorous, sometimes confusing debate in Gatineau, Que. Monday night.
While there was plenty of substantial (and relatively honest) disagreements on policy and politics over the course of the two-hour debate, the Star catalogued a few questionable claims from all six party leaders taking part in Monday’s debate.
Here they are, in the order the leaders’ fielded questions Monday night.
Justin Trudeau, Liberal leader
The claim: Trudeau said the Liberals have brought Canada “three quarters” of the way to its emissions reduction target under the Paris Agreement, which is 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
The facts: The latest national tally of emissions is from 2017. It says Canada emitted 716 million tonnes of greenhouse gas that year — just two per cent lower than in 2005. Moreover, the federal government projects that measures in the Liberal climate plan — including the carbon price, methane regulations and more — will reduce emissions to about 592 million tonnes by 2030. That’s only about 20 per cent below 2005 levels, or two thirds of the way to the target. The Liberals claim, however, that future technological improvement and impacts of incoming public transit expansions and more will ensure Canada closes the gap and exceeds the 2030 target.
Jagmeet Singh, NDP leader
The claim: Singh accused Trudeau’s Liberals of giving away $14 billion to big corporations so they could buy jets and limousines.
The facts: Last November, the Liberals announced in their fall economic update that they would spend $14 billion on a slew of tax measures for Canadian businesses. These measures allowed companies that invest in “clean energy” to immediately write off spending on new equipment and machinery, while other businesses could now write off capital spending more quickly. These changes were explicitly designed, the Liberals said, to boost manufacturing and clean energy production. The NDP has attacked the measures as irresponsible corporate giveaways ever since, claiming it would help big businesses buy more jets and limos.
Andrew Scheer, Conservative leader
The claim: “We’re going to pay for those (tax cuts and credits) by cutting corporate welfare and reducing Canada foreign aid budget by 25 per cent.”
The facts: Scheer has proposed cutting foreign aid and reviewing “corporate welfare” to find $3 billion in savings per year. But Conservatives have already announced spending that exceeds those savings, according to independent costing of their promises by the Parliamentary Budget Office.
Verdict: Misleading. The two cuts Scheer mentions, if fully implemented, would go some of the way to paying for their spending — but wouldn’t cover the whole bill.
Elizabeth May, Green leader
The claim: May defended her party’s “fully costed” election platform, and said it was approved as responsible by former Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page.
The facts: Initially, Page and his team at the University of Ottawa’s Institute for Fiscal Studies and Democracy gave the Greens a failing grade in all three categories of assessment: transparency, “realistic economic and fiscal assumption,” and “responsible fiscal management.” Days later, after receiving more information about their assumptions from the party, Page revised his assessment to give the party a passing grade. However, the institute still found the party failed on fiscal responsibility, because of the uncertainty surrounding the dramatic changes the party is proposing in the short term.
Verdict: Misleading without context.
Yves-François Blanchet, Bloc Québécois leader
The claim: Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet accused the Conservatives of speaking against Quebec’s secularism law, Bill 21, in English Canada but saying they would “protect” the law in Quebec.
The facts: For his part, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has consistently said — in English and French — that a Conservative government would not intervene in court challenges against the law. Scheer’s Quebec lieutenant, Alain Reyes, told reporters Sunday that electing a Conservative government would “impede Justin Trudeau from contesting Bill 21.”
Verdict: Misleading. The Conservatives’ position has been relatively clear on Bill 21 — they would not intervene.
Maxime Bernier, People’s Party of Canada leader
The claim: “Canada receives more immigrants per capita than any other Western country.”
The facts: According to 2015 figures from the World Economic Forum, Canada does have a higher percentage of immigrants compared to other Western countries — but not the most. Australia (28.2 per cent) had a higher percentage than Canada (21 per cent). But in terms of absolute numbers, Canada ranks below a number of countries in the number of immigrants.

|Cache||You needn't pull up at Iraq, Paddy and John, to find utterly shameful participation by Australia.
When FUKUS (France, UK, US) bombed Raqqa to smithereens, Amnesty Int conducted an investigation, and found the coalition's 'tweaking' of their rules of engagement for populated areas had led them to 'relax' their 'acceptable risks to civilians. Amnesty concluded their was prima facie evidence of war crimes having been committed by the coalition.
Bishop, the FM Minister at the time, unaware of the Amnesty investigation, publicly spat the dummy because Australia had flown missions out of the UAE, as an 'active contributor' to the FUKUS coalition that destroyed Raqqa. Bishop demanded due credit be given.
Then, Amnesty Australia noticed Bishop's dummy spit, and very publicly posed the question, as to whether Bishop would also like to 'put her hand up' for Australia to be investigated for the prima facie war crimes committed in Raqqa.
Amnesty did not get a response.
You can find all that on the Amnesty websites, and very few other places.
Further, nigh on 2 years ago, a French law firm lodged a request for investigation with the ICC Prosecutor's Office, alleging war crimes had been committed in Yemen, particularly by foreign mercenaries at the helm of the UAE military.
The first nation listed as having provided those mercenaries was Australia. The pinnacle of the UAE military is the Presidential Guard, which reports directly to MBZ.
The Presidential Guard is headed up by the former head of the SAS in Australia.
His name is Mike Hindmarsh, and he has been working for MBZ in the UAE for around a decade, and has 'recruited' (by reports, in fragments, incl from the ABC - and Murdoch's Australian!, but only ever in fragments) around 100 other former ADF, and just as concerningly, AFP, operatives to assist in the commission of the 'alleged' genocide in Yemen.
But, in this country, the delusions continue to reign supreme.|
|Cache||Is half of this report missing ? Not a word about about the great utilities functional monopolies. Telcos, water, gas and electricity. Along with the mentioned airports the common feature is that they’re all privatised entities of former publicly owned assets. Uncompetitive with rules written by the assets’ buyers.
As for banks and supermarkets there’s a difference between lack of competition and consumer reluctance to access it. I’ve long included a visit to a large supermarket in most countries I visit. It gives a good overview of costs of living, what people actually buy and value and provides a basis for comparison with here. The duopoly here are remarkably good for price and especially quality and range which surprised me.

France’s players and coaches will not shout it from the Imperial Palace rooftops but they know an English win in the Pool C contest on Saturday will offer Les Bleus a slightly enhanced chance of success in the knockout stages.Continue reading...

Ruby's, the popular all-day café with two NYC outposts, debuted over the weekend at 198 E. 11th St. at Third Avenue.
The East Village outpost was open for dinner on Friday and Saturday. Now, moving forward, the restaurant is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Australian-influenced bistro fare includes a variety of salads, pastas and burgers as well as breakfast items all day.
Ruby's first opened in 2003 on Mulberry Street between Prince and Spring (they expanded next door in 2014) ... with an additional cafe on Third Avenue between 30th Street and 31st Street arriving in 2016.
The space was previously Martina, which opened in August 2017 in 55 Third Ave., aka Eleventh and Third, the 12-floor residential building on the corner. The pizzeria, from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, never caught on, closing this past March.

Há 3,5 milhões de anos, um buraco negro supermassivo explodiu no meio da Via Láctea — explosão tão grande que o impacto foi sentido a 200 mil anos-luz de distância, na Corrente de Magalhães. A explosão foi desencadeada por um disparo de radiação ionizante no buraco negro Sagittarius A*, que tem a massa cerca de 4 milhões de vezes maior à do Sol. A descoberta foi realizada por cientistas estadunidenses e australianos e será publicada em breve no The Astrophysical Journal.
Chamado de "bengala de Seyfert", o fenômeno emitiu uma onda de radiação tão poderosa que saiu ao espaço profundo em forma de dois "cones de ionização" radioativos
Usando dados coletados pelo Telescópio Espacial Hubble, os pesquisadores calcularam que a explosão maciça ocorreu há pouco mais de 3 milhões de anos (um evento considerado surpreendentemente recente em termos galácticos). Para se ter uma ideia da escala de tempo, quando ocorreu a explosão do buraco negro, o asteroide que provocou a extinção dos dinossauros já tinha acontecido há 63 milhões de anos, e os ancestrais da humanidade, os australopitecinos, estavam povoando a África.
"Isso mostra que o centro da Via Láctea é um lugar muito mais dinâmico do que havíamos pensado anteriormente. É uma sorte que não estamos morando por lá", disse a professora Lisa Kewley, diretora do centro de astronomia ASTRO 3D. Os pesquisadores estimam que a explosão durou provavelmente 300 mil anos — um período que também é bastante curto em termos galácticos.
"Esses resultados mudam dramaticamente nossa compreensão da Via Láctea", afirmou a coautora Magda Guglielmo, da Universidade de Sydney. "Sempre pensamos em nossa galáxia como uma galáxia inativa, com um centro não tão brilhante. Esses novos resultados abrem a possibilidade de uma reinterpretação completa de sua evolução e natureza.

Участие в конкурсах для многих фотографов является своеобразным трамплином в карьере. К счастью, в мире существуют сотни различных престижных фотопроектов на любой вкус для начинающих любителей и профессионалов своего дела. Свадебная и подводная, пейзажная и спортивная — в бесчисленных видах съемок фотографы соревнуются за звание лучших в своей категории. А в Австралии при поддержке журнала Australian Geographic проходит ежегодный конкурс «Австралийский фотограф природы года». В этот раз победители проявили необыкновенную художественность и техничность, им удалось запечатлеть красоту природного мира уникального континента по полной.
Геофотограф в возрасте 17 лет получил премию за фото с узорами молний в небе над Новым Южном Уэльсом.

Необычный ночной хищник прибрежных вод Тихого океана, местный эндемик, ведущий одинокий образ жизни — калифорнийская бычья акула.

Chapter 2: Something Stirs in the Deep Places
In Earth-1, the original version of the planet, a young musician named Jim Culver senses the massive death toll in Earth-6 and is troubled. He is not aware of the Dreamlands or of the other Earths, and as such cannot find factual support for the suffering he feels. Uniquely able to communicate with the dead, a practice facilitated by his beautiful music, he searches for understanding. Meanwhile, massive storms begin to rage across the planet, wrecking ships and disrupting trade routes. Aquatic humanoids calling themselves Deep Ones begin to assault shore-dwelling humans. Jim has a number of disturbing encounters with monstrous corpses, giving him recurring nightmares.
Jim’s search brings him in touch with a number of similarly-concerned individuals, people with some understanding of occult matters and the nature of the dangers threatening their world. They are: Ursula, an explorer and archeologist who suffered a traumatic experience in the Pyramids of Egypt and has been a tortured amnesiac ever since; Gloria, a failed author who discovered a massive cult conspiracy while searching for inspiration; and Bob, a well-to-do salesman who has lost an incredible amount of business due to the storms and attacks and who funds the groups’ research.
The team determines that the disturbances are being caused by an array of current events, each designed to cause damage to the stability of reality. Ursula departs for the Arctic Circle, which she scours via airplane until she locates an emplacement of alien machines that have mysteriously been reactivated and are punching holes throughout reality. Though she deactivates and destroys it, the damage is done, and many portals have been opened across all six Earths and the Dreamlands. Gloria traces another source of disturbance to the ocean near Australia, where she finds entire swaths of the ocean overlaid with the Dreamlands. She meets the crew of the White Ship, learning about the Dreamlands and the existence of other Earths. She convinces the crew them not to tear open any Gates and to remain on Earth-1 until reality has been stabilized.
Jim and Bob rally military and police forces across the globe, pushing back the Deep Ones and protecting coastal cities. Bob comes to retrieve Ursula from the Arctic Circle and is bonded to by an ancient Hyperborean spirit, who grants him extensive magical powers. Unfortunately, none of this is enough. Gloria and Ursula map the disturbances and locate a focal point, a seemingly empty spot in the Southern Pacific Ocean. The team travels there and discover an island not recorded on any map and entirely covered with a half-submerged city.
After exploring the island, which appears to operate on different laws of physics and principles of perspective and geometry than the rest of the world, the team realizes it has been converted into a massive prison for twisted monstrosities. Gloria identifies the city as R’lyeh, former capital city of the Great Old One Cthulhu on earth. Now it is a prison for him and his children, the Star Spawn…but he appears to be sensitive to the disturbances in reality, and waking up. Ursula discovers a weapon capable of slaying Star Spawn, the Sword of Y’ha-Talla, and bonds to the weapon. The team attempts to reinforce the wards around R’lyeh, but the excess magical energy opens a Gate above the city, and several Star Spawn tear free of their cells and magical sleep and fly through it.
Ursula, having developed something of a savior complex after repeatedly protecting her teammates from monsters, follows the Star Spawn through the portal and into Sydney, Australia. There she fights in the Battle of Sydney, singlehandedly slaying many cultists and monsters but nearly going insane in the process. Severely injured, she leaves the ruins of Sydney behind and flees through the only avenue available to her: back through the portal to R’lyeh.
In her absence, Jim, Gloria, Bob, and Jim and Bob’s dead friends have assembled a map of the world’s leylines. They believe that reinforcing them with magical rituals will counteract the crumbling structures of reality and re-seal the locks of R’lyeh. Bob has agreed to teleport to one major confluence and perform the rites there, while Jim and Gloria head to the former location of Atlantis to do the same. As they are prepared to board a boat and flee R’lyeh, Ursula returns through the portal.
Jim immediately takes the broken Ursula under his wing and nurses her body and mind back to health as Gloria handles the necessary magic. As they are preparing to complete the seal, a Star Spawn attacks the boat. The sick Ursula severs its arm and drives it off with the Sword. She finally recovers from her amnesia and remembers a harrowing chase through an ancient underground tomb, pursued by a dark figure whispering terrible prophecies. Her injuries and trauma combined are too much for her, and she dies in Jim’s arms.
As Gloria and Bob are concurrently finishing their rituals, the Star Spawn returns. Jim attempts to dissuade it from killing them, and it offers him a deal, essentially for his soul. Furious over Ursula’s death, he refuses and wields her sword against it, and the creature is so surprised that it buys his allies enough time to finish the rites. The creature and its brethren are sent back to R’lyeh and Cthulhu’s stirrings cease, bringing and end to the storms and twisted nightmares plaguing the populace.
The team begins to investigate the fragments of other worlds they witnessed and the information they received from the crew of the White Ship, trying to understand what caused the stirrings of Cthulhu and the near-miss apocalypse.
Well! That went quite a bit better than last time. What do you think of our new heroes? Why are multiple Great Old Ones stirring simultaneously? What exactly happened to Ursula under the Pyramids? Only time will tell...
