我从高级软件工程师身上学到的那些经验与教训

 Cache   

一年之前,我开始在彭博担任全职工作。从那时起,我就在构思这篇文章。我想象自己能够在时机成熟时,把自己的想法都倾诉于纸端。但刚刚过去一个月,我就意识到这并非易事:随着工作的推进,我忘掉了很多自己刚刚学到的东西。这些东西快速内化,使我的大脑开始欺骗自己,令我误以为自己早就掌握了这些清晰记得的知识,或者是认定自己从未听说过那些实际上是被忘记了的内容。

正因为如此,我才开始保留自己的日志。每当遇到有趣的情况,我都会把它记录下来。感谢坐在我身边的高级软件工程师们,我可以认真观察他们在做什么、与我的做法又有何区别。我们会经常结对编程,这能够大大降低工作的难度。另外,在我们的团队文化当中,“窥探”其他人的编码过程并不是什么不光彩的事情。每当我感觉有趣的事情要发生时,总坐很快转过身去查看。这种敏锐,让我总能快速弄清事情的来龙去脉。

下面来看看坐在一位高级软件工程师身旁一年,我都学到了哪些重要经验。

编写代码

如何命名

我在工作中接触的第一项任务是开发一款React UI。当时我们拥有一个主组件,用于容纳其它所有组件。我喜欢在代码当中加点幽默元素,所以我把它命名为GodComponent。但在代码审查时,我才意识到为什么命名工作如此重要、也如此困难。

计算机科学领域有两大难题:缓存失效、命名以及缓冲溢出错误。 -—— Leon Bambrick

Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition : la mort vous va si bien

 Cache   

Alors même si nous vous avons déjà proposé un test sur le jeu, je vais vous décrire ici ses principales caractéristiques. C’est l’histoire de Death qui veut sauver War qui a décimé l’Humanité ou tout du moins on l’accuse de cela, il va être condamné et Death ne peut laisser faire cela. Il souhaite donc effacer les crimes de son frère. La licence avait étonné lors de la sortie du premier opus. Le jeu proposait des mécaniques d’exploration de donjons qui rappelaient celles de Zelda et d’autres de combats qui pouvaient faire penser à ceux de God Of War. Et bien cet épisode 2 nous emmène un peu plus loin du côté du RPG et même du Hack’n Slash. Certains ont balancé le mot Diablo en guise de comparaison. Mais entrons justement plus en détails dans le gameplay. Un gameplay savoureux Vous voilà donc projeté dans un monde d’Heroic Fantasy et il va falloir l’explorer. Pour cela, votre personnage possède un destrier pour ses grands déplacements mais la plupart des actions se font à pied. Côté combats, il peut esquiver et attaquer avec son épée ou son arme secondaire. Comme dans Zelda, on peut poser une mire sur l’ennemi pour...

A Goddess Thing Mix and Match Expressions for Olympia 7

 Cache   

All the glamour and charm of a goddess, the maximum expressiveness for all kinds of situations. A must have for Olympia 7!

"A Goddess Thing" adds the degree of realism in expressions that you need for the new generation of Iray renders. Every detail in the face has been adjusted to make your characters look real and alive.

A Goddess Thing is a pack of expressions organized in three folders (Full Face, Upper Face, and Lower Face) for Olympia 7. With them, you can apply an expression that moves all the face, or partial expressions that move only the upper or lower parts of the face.

You can apply a full face expression, or make your own mixing the upper and lower face partials. This gives you more possibilities: change your idea on the go, leave the lips that you like and choose different eyes for the expression, use the parts of the expressions that you like more, or even choose similar partials to subtly change the mouth or eyes in an animation, just like what happens in real life.

Natural expressions for real faces, with subtle asymmetries to enhance realism. Good taste expressions, no grimaces. Although they were made especially for Olympia 7, they also work on Genesis 3 Female(s), and figures based on her.

Also includes 10 eye colors (eight natural + two fantasy colors), six natural makeups, five fantasy makeups, five eyelashes colors that will look great with the makeups, nine lip colors, and seven nails colors that look great with the lip colors for perfect looking.

And if this wasn't enough, you get a set of fantasy Claw Rings: one for each finger. You can use them together for all the fingers, or just on the ones you want. They automatically follow the movement of the character's finger tips, and can be customized with the partial materials: for the metal of the claw rings, and for the jewels. The transform dials of the claw rings have been fine-tuned, to make adaptation easy, in case you want to use them with other characters.

A pack that you can't miss!

An icon is provided to remove the special options and restore the default base skin.

Expanded Godrays - Celestial Bodies

 Cache   

The time has come to be blinded by the light!.

This set adds unique additional functionality with a sun and rays that you can turn in any direction with a camera, plus many planets, moons and colored rays to use with the base setup. The rays do not penetrate objects and characters for additional realism in your scenes.

To add to the celestial possibilities, there are star and cloud spheres with presets to create different kinds of skies. These are suitable for outer space scenes, but their very best use is earthbound, for creating skies above your characters. To that end, there are both realistic terrestrial and fantastical alien skies and planets included. They load as smart props of the sun and rays, so you can move them with the camera as well.

Whether you want to create realistic, science fiction, horror or fantasy scenes, the Expanded Godrays: Celestial Bodies have something to offer!

This set does not require the original Simple Godrays, but is completely compatible with it.

Price: $13.95 Special Price: $6.98

Mystic Circlets are the jewels that invoke the power of magic and summon the ancient deities, and are the perfect ornament for the fantasy creatures that you saw in movies and art, and now ready for your creations, with complete freedom for your imagination. A must-have!

Mystic Circlets For Any Figure is a set of 5 circlets that can be used with any figure. By default they fit to Genesis 2 Female(s), but we also included fit morphs for the most common female and male figures for faster and easier fitting: Genesis 2 Male, Victoria 6, Michael 6, M4 Shape for Genesis 2 Male, V4, and M4. Also works great in any other Genesis 2 figure or character, usually with very little adjustment required.

We have studied deeply what we needed to make this product as versatile as possible, and we have designed a jewelry pack that can be used on ANY figure for Poser or DAZ Studio. Then, we made it easier for the user, so it always look fantastic in every render, on every figure, character or pose.

You just need a figure with a head part (99% of them meet these criteria, including Victoria 6, Genesis 2 Female(s), V4...). The jewels will follow the movement, and you can use the adjustment morphs and the fine-tuned transform dials to fit them to your figure perfectly.

Descriptions of the jewel sets and materials:

- Ataegina: Brings the magic to defend the land of the mighty warriors, a horned circlet with modeled rings and leaves worth of being in the most professional ilustrations. In natural horn mat with brown leaves and copper metal, all silver with rings and points in relief, all gold with reliefs, or natural horns with green leaves

- Belisama: The horns of the deer goddess, and the pentagram that invokes the magic of the ancients! In silver, bronze, and two shades of gold combinations, plus partials for leaves in silver, green, brown, or gold, and for horns in natural, silver or gold, that you can mix with the already made combinations

Sersee Hair

 Cache   

Sersee Hair is a very versatile hair style, with optional cloth in the braids, and also includes a digitally sculpted crown with many options. Timeless, customizable, and easy to use, perfect for fantasy, fairies, warriors, sorceress, nymphs, goddess, queens, princess... A must have!

The braid cloth is optional: can use it or or not, just by applying a material, and you have 8 colors to choose if you do. The crown is independent and can be used with the hair or not.

Sersee Crown comes in two versions. One auto adapts to any Genesis 2 Female(s) and characters, and the other is a free prop that you can place elsewhere (over a table or to simulate a coronation ceremony for example).

The crown has partial materials for the crown, the leaves, the metallic frills, and the jewels. It also has 5 partial hide options that can be mixed to get the crown without any ornament, or hide the small or the big leaves, the upper or lower ornament, or any combination of these.

The 116 morphs added (adjustment, volume, shoulders, movement, all back on one or both sides, wind, mess, all back with braids to the front...) give you freedom and ease of use. You can adapt the hair to almost any pose. Choose between 6 morphs for all back: 2 with all back with normal volume, 2 with extra volume to sides, and 2 with only strands to back and braids on the front. These all back morphs are combinable because they work on the left or right independently. You can set all back on the left, and on the right only the strands with braid over the chest, for example. Mess, Wind, Windy, Widen and Volume morphs allow you to make it messy and fly in all directions

The hair includes 20 mats (14 natural colors, and 6 fantasy colors) for the hair. You have 8 cloth colors for the braid cloth: black, blue, brown, gold, green, pink, red, and silver.

Genesis 2 Female and her derived females are supported: Lilith 6, Aiko 6, Gia 6, The Girl 6, Olympia 6, Stephanie 6, Teen Josie 6, Victoria 4 Shape for Genesis 2 Female(s), Victoria 6, Giselle 6.

In addition, we have adjusted the rigging features as much as possible, so it will also work great with custom head morph shapes. If you need some more adjustment, you have morphs for that too.

Comment on Ghana’s Deportation of Nigerians is a new Chapter in a Very Ugly History that Must End by pete

 Cache   
You are simply an illiterate. where on earth does a ghanaian see a nigerian and feel inferior?. these are all part of your arrogance insensitivities kidnappings in ghana evil ritual killings of innocent ghanaians in our own peaceful country where your unmanaged big for nothing but international evil crime population is intended to overwhelm ghanaians. By the way if you talk of inferiority as a black man telling fellow black man about inferiority then are you aware of your population and the size of your country at all?. Are you clever enough to remmember the date you people had your independence as compared to ghana despite all your empty arrogant claims and your umnanaged population?. And do you quite remmember about the only black African country that produced a UN secretary general for the whole world?. No country in this world welcomes or has any good to say about nigerians but crimes crimes crimes and evil crimes. However i do have many advise to offer you but i can only sense that you are no human being as you absolutely do not have a brain to think properly therefore whenever it comes to your fucking mind to mention inferiority about ghanaians just think about all the facts i have given to you above and all the evils that you and your people are doing globally and what the brave no nonsense south Africans and their govt are doing to you consequently!!. Ghana is in due course going to control its population and by so doing shall need to get about eighty percent of you people out in order to maintain our own space to reserve those for our gene4ations followings. God says people without brain such as you should always pray for brain. Thank you.

Embun

 Cache   


    Aku dan kamu sudah saling kenal sejak seminggu yang lalu. Dalam rentang waktu tersebut aku tahu kamu tidak sedingin es seperti yang pernah kuterka sebelumnya. Di balik perawakanmu yang keras seperti karang di laut, bermukim satu siluet lembut yang penuh kasih. Mungkin kamu akan tersenyum kecil tatkala membaca perumpamaan ini. Dan bisa jadi kamu tertawa karena kata-kata tadi terasa picisan. Biarpun begitu, aku tak peduli. Karena hanya itu yang mampu kuungkap.


    Sebenarnya aku ingin berucap aku senang bersamamu. Setiap gerak-gerikmu seperti magnet yang membuatku terus-terusan menatapmu. Aku penasaran. Daya tarik macam apa yang kamu punya. Bahkan aku juga tak bisa membunuh rasa penasaran itu saat rasa kantuk sudah mennguasaiku.Ini gila! Belum pernah aku terinfeksi oleh sesuatu yang berasal dari makhluk yang disebut manusia.
    Berdua denganmu, seperti mengenakan sweater hangat saat embun pagi masih mengambang di puncak-puncak bukit. Kamu hangat, dan kehangatan itu aku yakini bukan sebagai kehangatan sesaat. Tiap jengkal sweater itu, yang membungkus kulitku, mampu membuatku  bernafas sebagaimana mestinya.
    Suatu kali pernah kudapati kamu bermenung di balkon. Kamu pandangi rekahan-rekahan merah dan magenta di ufuk barat. Tatapanmu berat dan sendu. Jika aku adalah langit yang kamu tatap itu, tak akan kubiarkan sejumput sendu bersemanyam di kedua bola matamu. Akan kuganti sang merah dan magenta menjadi beberapa barisan aurora.
    "Apa yang kau pikirkan?" tanyaku setelah berdiri di sebelahmu.
    "Langit itu," ucapmu datar.
    "Ada apa dengan langitnya?"
    Kamu mendesah pelan. Ringan kepalamu menoleh padaku lalu kita pun bertatapan untuk beberapa detik. "Langit itu seperti hati. Kadang mendung, kadang cerah."
    Senyap. Desau angin sore menelisik helai-helai rambut kita. Kata-katamu yang baru saja kudengar sudah membuatku tahu bahwa ada sesuatu yang menyesaki pikiranmu. Aku tidak tergerak untuk memberi pertanyaan lanjutan.
    Sore semakin jingga, cerah tanpa awan. Sebelum meninggalkanmu dan lamunananmu, kucari sebuah kata yang bisa kubaca dari wajahmu. Kamu masih memandangi langit senja di ufuk barat. Kamu tak lagi menoleh padaku. Dan tanpa kuhendaki, senja yang hangat terasa seperti pagi yang basah dan berembun. Dingin.

* * *


    Pagi-pagi buta aku terjaga. Tidak biasanya aku begini. Kulirik jam dinding. Pukul tiga dini hari. Aku mengosok-gosok kedua mataku kemudian turun dari ranjang. Rasa haus yang mendadak muncul secara otomatis menuntunku menuju dapur di lantai dasar.
    Setiap anak tangga yang kuinjak berdecit. Mau tidak mau kucoba untuk turun dengan pelan. Aku tidak ingin membangunkan yang lainnya. Apalagi kalau sampai membangunkanmu. Terhitung sejak percakapan kita tadi sore, baik aku maupun kamu tidak saling menyapa. Hanya seulas senyum yang saling kita berikan bila kita berpas-pasan. Dalam konsep ini, aku yakin senyum itu hanyalah sebentuk perjuangannmu untuk menyatakan bahwa kamu baik-baik saja. Padahal sebenarnya tidak.
    Langkahku terhenti pada anak tangga terakhir. Lampu ruang tengah masih menyala, berikut televisi berukuran tiga puluh inchi. Aku menggeleng. Ingin tahu siapa yang telah melakukan kesembronoan ini. Mataku tertumbuk pada remote televisi yang ada di atas meja. Reflek aku melangkah menuju meja tersebut lalu tersadar bahwa ada seseorang yang sedang tidur pulas di sofa panjang. Rupanya kamu tertidur di sini,membiarkan seorang presenter di layar kaca bercuap-bercuap sendiri tanpa ada yang menonton.
    Sebelum mendapatimu, kedua kelopak mataku berat. Namun, seperti yang sudah-sudah, kedua bola mataku akan terbuka bila  parasmu telah ada di hadapku. Aku yakin Tuhan pasti memahatmu dengan ketelatenan yang tinggi sehingga tak pernah kuasa aku mengabaikan segala yang ada padamu. Bila ada yang bilang cinta itu tak melirik tampilan fisik, itu perlu diklarifikasi. Karena pada hakikatnya apa yang tampak di luar, mempengaruhi apa yang akan tampak dari dalam. Kendatipun begitu, tak perlu salahkan aku kalau aku tergoda karena parasmu.
    Kamu tidur seperti anak kecil. Berbantalkan sweater abu-abu tanpa selimut. Aku tersenyum. Kamu tetap menarik, bahkan saat tidur.
    "Kamu belum tidur?"
    Aku berbalik. Seorang laki-laki berusia setengah abad tengah menatapku. Aku bergeming, "Saya terjaga."
    "Dia?" laki-laki yang biasa dipanggil Koh Achan itu kini melirik kamu yang masih tidur, di belakangku. "Kenapa dia tidur di situ?"
    "Ketiduran." Ujarku datar lalu menunjuk televisi yang masih menyala. Koh Achan geleng-geleng. Segera kumatikan televisi dan ia pun berlalu. Kembali ke kamarnya di lantai atas.
    Sekarang, ruang tengah senyap. Cuma ada aku dan kamu di sini. Indera penglihatanku kembali menikmati parasmu dalam decak kagum yang tak pernah terucap. Bukannya aku egois, hanya saja aku tak ingin kamu berpikir bahwa aku tipikal orang yang mengejar kesempurnaan jasmani sementara kesempurnaan rohani dikesampingkan. Jadi, akan lebih manusiawi kalau rasa kagumku padamu tetap kupendam di dasar hati. Dan jika waktu bermurah hati padaku, aku yakin kekaguman itu akan keluar sendiri dengan cara yang tak diduga-duga. Seperti orang bilang, semua indah pada waktunya.

    Kamu menggeliat. Memeluk tubuhmu sendiri untuk memberikan sedikit kehangatan. Sontak aku sadar. Malam semakin dingin dan sudah pasti dalam kondisi macam ini kamu butuh selimut. Aku menggaruk-garuk kepalaku yang tak gatal. Intuisiku bilang, tidak seharusnya aku menikmati parasmu manakala kamu tengah kedinginan. Kutinggalkan kamu sejenak lalu melangkah ke kamarmu yang pintunya masih terbuka. Kupagut selimut tebal bermotif daun-daun bambu. Tanpa kumau, aroma tubuhmu tercium.
    Selimutmu lucu juga. Karena di setiap sudutnya ada gambar kepala Panda. Aku tersenyum kecil. Mencoba menerka bagaimana parasmu waktu kecil dulu. Pasti kamu tidak kalah lucu bila dibandingkan dengan hewan herbivora itu. Pipi yang berisi, bola mata yang besar, dan mulut yang masih belum memiliki gigi. Kamu pasti menggemaskan.
    Kututup pintu kamarmu tanpa menimbulkan suara gaduh. Aku yakin, kamu akan terus tidur di sofa itu sampai fajar menyingsing. Jadi bisa kupastikan kamu tidak akan kembali ke kamarmu kecuali kalau kamu ingin menaruh selimut pandamu di tempatnya semula.
    Kamu masih di atas sofa. Memeluk dirimu sendiri dalam keadaan mata terpejam. Mungkin mimpimu terlalu monoton atau bisa jadi kamu tidak sedang mimpi sama sekali. Eksperesi wajahmu datar dan hanya hela lepas nafasmu yang bisa kudengar. Segera kuusir dingin yang masih menggerayangimu dengan menutupi tubuhmu dengan selimut. Kamu kembali menggeliat, aku berhati-hati. Takut kalau sentuhan selimut yang baru saja menghangatkanmu merusak tidur pulasmu.
    Kamu tidak kedinginan lagi. Aku senang.
    Kupadamkan lampu ruang tengah, agar lelapmu semakin nyaman. Selepas itu, aku memasuki dapur yang bersisian dengan tangga ke lantai atas. Kuraih cangkir kaca yang tertangkup di atas meja. Di sebelah cangkir itu, kulihat sekotak teh celup berikut sebungkus gula pasir. Sekarang, rasa kantukku benar-benar sudah hilang. Satu-satunya yang bisa kulakukan sekarang adalah menanti pagi. Dan sepertinya, secangkir teh panas bisa membuat penantianku sedikit lebih menyenangkan.
    Aroma teh yang telah kuseduh cukup nikmat. Kuteguk teh berwarna cokelat kemerahan itu perlahan. Merasakan manisnya di lidah lalu menikmati hangatnya saat melewati tenggorokan lalu berhenti di lambung.
    Sepuluh menit lagi jam dinding di ruang tengah akan menunjukkan pukul empat dini hari. Aku tidak ambil pusing. Di malam yang dingin ini, aku hanya ingin merenungi keberadaanku. Ngomong-ngomong, kenapa aku bertemu denganmu di tempat seperti ini? Barangkali kamu akan menjawab bahwa memang takdir lah yang menyebabkan pertemuan itu terjadi.
    Sebenarnya aku tidak begitu suka dengan sesuatu yang berbau liburan, apalagi berlibur di puncak. Tapi, aku tidak bisa menolak ajakan Lili saat ia memberitahuku tentang rencananya menghabiskan libur semester di alam terbuka. Ia bahkan merajuk pada ibu dan ayahku agar ia bisa membawaku turut serta dalam agenda liburannya. Ia sukses.
    Alhasil, di hari pertama aku menempati villa Lili, aku bertemu denganmu. Waktu itu perbukitan di sekitar villa tidak bisa dilihat dengan jelas. Embun turun dengan ketebalan yang hebat sampai-sampai aku merasa sedang berada di atas awan. Dingin sedikit menusuk tulang, juga membuat bulu-bulu halus di leherku meremang. Aku, yang saat itu sedang duduk santai di teras villa, dikejutkan oleh suara klakson mobil. Itu kamu.
    Kamu keluar dari mobil seraya menjinjing sebuah koper berukuran sedang. Bersamaan dengan itu, seorang laki-laki paruh baya keluar dari sisi mobil yang berlawanan, Koh Achan. Baik kamu maupun pamanmu itu, memiliki tiggi dan postur tubuh yang sama. Hanya saja, kamu lebih muda dan tentunya lebih menarik di mataku. Bukannya aku menyanjung atau membual, tapi memang demikianlah adanya. Saat itu, darahku langsung berdesir pada pandangan pertama.
    Tidak terpikir olehku bahwasanya kamu juga memiliki rasa humor yang bagus. Kamu mudah menulari tawamu pada siapa saja, termasuk aku. Lili, Rila, dan Anton bahkan seringkali kesulitan untuk menahan tawa karena guyonan-guyonan segarmu. Kata Koh Achan, 'lucu' adalah kata yang paling tepat untuk mendeskripsikan siapa dirimu. Kendatipun demikian, ada sebagian dari diriku yang ingin menguak sesuatu dari dirimu. Apakah dibalik derai tawamu itu pernah mengalir air mata? Apakah dibalik wajah yang selalu tersenyum itu pernah tergores luka? Aku sangat penasaran dan sayangnya pertanyaan itu masih kupendam.

    Dari hari ke hari, aku seperti terlupa tentang rasa engganku untuk menikmati liburan di villa Lili. Aku tak kunjung jengah bersepeda di alam hijau, bersantap barbeque tiap malam, bersantai di halaman belakang sembari menyaksikan air terjun, dan berbagi cerita tiapkali kita semua berkumpul di ruang tengah. Aku bisa menikmati semua itu karena ada kamu.
    Dua hari lalu, baru kutahu kalau kamu sudah memiliki seseorang yang spesial. Bahkan, di antara obrolan-obrolan kita, kamu juga menyinggung tentang hubungan manismu dengan orang spesial itu. Walaupun sebagian hatiku tidak ikhlas menerima kenyataan ini, tapi aku masih tak kuasa memalingkan mata darimu. Barangkali beberapa urat syarafku tidak lagi berfungsi secara optimal. Sehingga aku masih mengagumimu untuk alasan yang irrasional. Ya, aku sadar diri. Kamu tidak bisa kumiliki.
    Rila dan Anton sesekali menggodaimu dengan kata 'pernikahan'. Menanggapi kata itu kamu tersenyum lebar tanpa memberi ungkapan yang muluk-muluk. Dan Lili, sepupumu yang manis itu, tak pernah bosan menggodaimu sampai akhirnya pipimu bersemu merah. Sementara aku, jauh merasa lebih baik untuk tersenyum lebar saat melihat mereka menggodaimu. Aku tersenyum bukan karena aku bahagia dengan guyonan mereka, tapi aku hanya menyembunyikan rasa sakitku yang tak tertahan. Aku tidak mau mendramatisir keadaan dengan air mata berlinang. Itu bukan aku. Sesakit apa pun, senyumku masih tetap sama. Tetap hangat tapi menyimpan makna yang kadang berlawanan dengan kenyataan.
    "Hai," satu sapaan berlabuh di telingaku. Sontak lamunanku terhenti. "Tidak tidur?"
    "Aku terjaga."
    Kamu menaruh salah satu tanganmu di mulut, menguap. Kantukmu masih bergelantungan di pelupuk mata. "Kenapa tidak tidur lagi?"
    Aku angkat bahu. Tersenyum.
    Kamu mendekat. Kemudian menarik kursi yang ada di sebelahku. Sekarang, kita duduk bersisian. Denyut jantungku seketika memburu.
    "Apa yang kamu pikirkan?"
    "Banyak," ujarku hambar.
    "Oh, ya?"
    Aku mengangguk. Nyaris tanpa ekspresi. Aku tak mau kamu menyelami apa yang sedang kurasakan. Tidak boleh.
    "Ceritakan padaku salah satunya."
    "Haruskah?"
    Kamu tersenyum, "kalau kamu keberatan, aku tak memaksa."
    Akhirnya, aku penuhi permintaanmu. Mumpung di ruang ini hanya ada aku dan kamu, kita. Saat-saat yang tak pernah kubayangkan akan ada di dalam hidupku.
    Aku mulai bercerita, tentang kisah cintaku yang tak pernah berakhir bahagia. Jujur, cinta itu seperti petir. Tidak ada yang bisa mencegahnya terjadi, hal itu terjadi secara alamiah tanpa rekayasa manusia. Kedengarannya mungkin agak puitis, tapi memang itulah satu-satunya filosofiku tentang cinta.
    Kamu mengangguk pelan, kemudian menatapku sendu.
    "Intinya, apa itu cinta masih merupakan tanda tanya besar bagiku. Karena itulah aku masih single sampai detik ini."
    "Begitu, ya." Timpalmu tanpa meninggikan suara.
    "Apa?"
    Mulutmu mengatup rapat. Kedua matamu menatapku lurus, seolah-olah ada sesuatu yang kamu cari di kedua bola mataku. Setelah itu, kamu bangkit dari kursi lalu mendekati jendela dapur. Mendadak aku menjadi arca. Tak berucap sepatah kata pun.
    "Sebentar lagi pagi," jelasmu datar. "Berbahagialah, karena pagi ini kamu masih hidup untuk mencari arti cinta."
    Usai berkata demikian, kamu beranjak dari hadapanku. Dan sementara itu, aku masih menjadi arca di depan secangkir teh manis yang kini telah dingin.
    Aku, kamu, dan cinta. Sukar dipahami.

WOMEN QUOTES

 Cache   
Women are like tricks by sleight of hand,
Which, to admire, we should not understand.
WILLIAM CONGREVE, Love for Love
I have seen too much not to know that the impression of a woman may be more valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner.
SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Man's love is of man's life a thing apart,
'Tis woman's whole existence.
LORD BYRON, Don Juan
It is the plain women who know about love; the beautiful women are too busy being fascinating.
KATHARINE HEPBURN, Evan Esar's 20,000 Quips & Quotes
The plainest man who pays attention to women, will sometimes succeed as well as the handsomest man who does not.
CHARLES CALEB COLTON, Lacon

The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?”
SIGMUND FREUD, Ernest Jones' Sigmund Freud: Life and Work

A woman cannot be herself in the society of the present day, which is an exclusively masculine society, with laws framed by men and with a judicial system that judges feminine conduct from a masculine point of view.
HENRIK IBSEN, From Ibsen's Workshop

"Woman" is my slave name; feminism will give me freedom to seek some other identity altogether.
ANN SNITOW, "A Gender Diary," Conflicts in Feminism


There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.
WASHINGTON IRVING, The Sketch Book
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work ... a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
BARBRA STREISAND, People Magazine, May 31, 1993

Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.
PARIS HILTON

If young women were not deceived into a belief that affectation pleases, they would scarcely trouble themselves to practise it so much.
MARIA EDGEWORTH, Mademoiselle Panache

Everything about woman is a riddle, and everything about woman has a single solution: that is, pregnancy.
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Thus Spake Zarathustra

For I cannot think that GOD Almighty ever made them [women] so delicate, so glorious creatures; and furnished them with such charms, so agreeable and so delightful to mankind; with souls capable of the same accomplishments with men: and all, to be only Stewards of our Houses, Cooks, and Slaves.
DANIEL DEFOE, The Education of Women

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy.
OSCAR WILDE, The Importance of Being Earnest
A woman's whole life is a history of the affections.
WASHINGTON IRVING, The Sketch Book

Let men tremble to win the hand of woman, unless they win along with it the utmost passion of her heart.
NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, The Scarlet Letter

When women are the advisers, the lords of creation don't take the advice till they have persuaded themselves that it is just what they intended to do. Then they act upon it, and, if it succeeds, they give the weaker vessel half the credit of it. If it fails, they generously give her the whole.
LOUISA MAY ALCOTT, Little Women

What happens is that, as with drugs, he needs a stronger shot each time, and women are just women. The consumption of one woman is the consumption of all. You can’t double the dose.

Every world has faults
This one has too many
Unattainable Female Objects.

Don't wait for the good woman. She doesn't exist.
CHARLES BUKOWSKI, letter to Steve Richmond, Nov. 1971
Woman was God's second mistake.
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, The Antichrist

I think women dwell quite a bit on the duress under which they work, on how hard it is just to do it at all. We are traditionally rather proud of ourselves for having slipped creative work in there between the domestic chores and obligations. I'm not sure we deserve such big A-pluses for all that.
TONI MORRISON, Newsweek, Mar. 30, 1981

You won't regret the men you never killed, but you will regret the women you passed up.
BERNARD CORNWELL, The Winter King

Lone women, like to empty houses, perish.
CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE, Hero and Leander

Birth control is the first important step woman must take toward the goal of her freedom. It is the first step she must take to be man’s equal. It is the first step they must both take toward human emancipation.
MARGARET SANGER, "Morality and Birth Control," Birth Control Review, Feb-Mar., 1918

Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags.
CHARLOTTE BRONTE, Jane Eyre

The happiest women, like the happiest nations, have no history.
GEORGE ELIOT, The Mill on the Floss


In revenge and in love woman is more barbaric than man is.

No matter what a woman looks like, if she's confident, she's sexy.
PARIS HILTON
I, Woman, am that wonder-breathing rose
That blossoms in the garden of the King.
ELSA BARKER, The Mystic Rose
I'm not denyin' the women are foolish: God Almighty made 'em to match the men.
GEORGE ELIOT, Adam Bede
I know little of women. But I've heard dread tales.
HAROLD PINTER, Moonlight
O woman, perfect woman! what distraction
Was meant to mankind when thou wast made a devil!
JOHN FLETCHER, Monsieur Thomas
In Hollywood, the women are all peaches. It makes one long for an apple occasionally.
W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM, Gene Shalit's Great Hollywood Wit


It is possible, reading standard histories, to forget half the population of the country. The explorers were men, the landholders and merchants men, the political leaders men, the military figures men. The very invisibility of women, the overlooking of women, is a sign of their submerged status.
HOWARD ZINN, A People's History of the United States
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow,
A herb most bruised is woman.
EURIPIDES, Medea
The sexual life of adult women is a “dark continent” for psychology.
SIGMUND FREUD, The Question of Lay Analysis
Woman's mind
Oft' shifts her passions, like th'inconstant wind;
Sudden she rages, like the troubled main,
Now sinks the storm, and all is calm again.
JOHN GAY, Dione

Sejarah Freemasonry

 Cache   
Freemasonry adalah organisasi Yahudi Internasional, sekaligus merupakan gerakan rahasia paling besar dan palling berpengaruh di seluruh dunia. Freemasonry terdiri dari dua kata yang di satukan. Free artinya bebas atau merdeka, sedangkan Mason adalah juru bangun atau pembangun.
Tujuan akhir dari gerakan Freemason ini adalah membangun kembali cita-cita khayalan mereka, yakni mendirikan Haikal Sulaiman atau Solomon Temple.



Tentang Haikal Sulaiman atau Solomon Temple ini sendiri banyak sumber yang mendefinisikan berlainan. Salah satu tafsir yang paling populer adalah, bahwa Haikal Sulaiman berada di tanah yang kini di atasnya berdiri Masjidil Aqsha.
Mereka meyakini, tahun 1012 Sebelum Masehi (SM), Nabi Sulaiman membangun Haikal di atas Gunung Soraya di wilayah Palestina. Tapi pada tahun 586 SM, Raja Nebukhadnezar dari Babilonia menghancurkan Haikal Sulaiman ini. Tahun 533 SM, bangunan ini didirikan kembali oleh seorang bernama Zulbabil yang telah bebas dari tawanan Babilonia. Atas kebebasannya itulah, ia membangun kembali Haikal Sulaiman.
Pada tahun ke 70 M, seorang penguasa Romawi menaklukkan Palestina dan membakar serta menghancurkan Haikal Sulaiman ini. Kerusakan terus-menerus dialami setelah penyerbuan Bangsa Hadriyan. Begitu pula saat kekuasaan Muslim, konon Haikal Sulaiman di hancurkan dan sebagai gantinya didirikan Masjidil Aqsha pada abad ke-7.
Tapi tafsir lain tentang hal ini juga mengartikan Haikal Sulaiman juga sebagai wilayah kekuasan yang luas membentang. Bahkan ada yang menariknya hingga sampai wilayah Khaibar, saat kaum Yahudi diusir di zaman Rasulullah Muhammad. Karena itu, mereka meyakini harus menguasai seluruh dunia, bahkan hingga tanah Khaibar, tempat mereka terusir dahulu karena penghianatanya pada Rasulullah dan piagam Madinah.
Dan untuk itulah mereka bekerja dan membangun, yaitu untuk merebut Haikal Sulaiman dan mendirikan kekuasannya secara nyata, serta mempengaruhi pemerintahan dan kekuasan yang mampu mereka pengaruhi. Dan untuk menebar kekuasaan itu, salah satu rintangan besar yang dihadapi oleh gerakan ini adalah agama-agama, terutama agama Samawi atau agama-agama wahyu, Kristen dan Islam.
Sebelum kaum muslimin sadar tentang bahaya gerakan Freemason, perlawanan terhadap organisasi ini terlebih dulu dilakukan oleh kalangan pemimpin gereja. Perlawanan gereja Katholik ini terjadi karena Freemason telah menjadi organisasi tempat berkumpulnya kaum anti-agama. Dalam sebuah artikel berjudul The Earlier Period Of Freemasonry yang di Mimar Sinan, turki, Freemason disebut sebagai tempat berkumpul para anggota Mason yang mencari kebenaran di luar gereja. Dan ini menjadikan awal abad-18 sebagai tahun-tahun yang penuh pertarungan antara gereja Katholik dengan Freemason di Eropa. Sejak awal berdirinya, Fremason telah menyokong kebebasan beragama, sama persis dengan yang terjadi belakangan ini di berbagai negara, liberalisasi keagamaan.
Freemason berdiri di Inggris secara resmi pada tahun 1717. Tapi tampaknya, sebelum tahun itu pun, Freemasonry telah eksis. Bahkan sejak abad sebelumnya. Tahun 1641, seorang keluarga kerajaan Inggris, Robert Moray tercatat sebagai anggota cabang Freemason di Edinburg, tepatnya 20 Mei 1641. nama lain yang juga tercatat sebagai anggota Freemason sebelum tahun 1717 adalah Elias Ashmole tercatat sebagai anggota Freemasonry di Lanchasire pada 16 Oktober 1646. Dan ia juga salah seorang dari royal family atau keluarga kerajaan.
Dari catatan di atas, sebetulnya bisa ditarik kesimpulan bahwa tahun 1717 hanya tahun pemantapan saja dari tahap-tahap yang telah dilakukan oleh gerakan Freemson. Tahun ini dijadikan sebagai tahun ekspansi untuk melakukan dan menancapkan pengaruh mereka di seluruh dunia.
Tahun 1717 ini dijadikan sebagai tonggak bagi Freemason unuk memulai perangnya yang akan sangat panjang kepada umat beragama dan kepada agama itu sendiri. Seorang kepala gereja protestan di London yang bernama Anderson dan berdarah Yahudi menjadi motor penggeraknya pada 24 Juni 1717. Pada momentum inilah Freemason mendirikan Grand Lodge of England dengan menggabungkan empat lodge menjadi satu.
Banyak sumber Freemason menjelaskan bahwa sejarah berdirinya gerakan ini berakar jauh dan bisa dilacak hingga ke masa Ordo Knight of Templar saat perang Salib di Yerusalem, Palestina. Saat Paus Urbanus II, tahun 1095, usai Konsili Clermont menyerukan Perang Suci atau Crusade dan memobilisasi kaum Kristiani di seluruh Eropa untuk turut berperang merebut Yerusalem kembali dari kekuasaan Muslim. Paus Urbanus II membakar emosi massa dengan cara mengabarkan kabar bohong. Ia mengatakan umat Kristen di Palestina telah dibunuh, dibantai dan dibakar di dalam gereja-gereja oleh pasukan Turki Seljuk yang Muslim. Ia juga membakar kemarahan kaum Kristiani dengan mengatakan bahwa kaum kafir (Muslim Turki, pen.) telah dan sedang menguasai makam Yesus Kristus.
Paus UrbanusII menyerukan agar seluruh pertikaian yang terjadi selama ini antar pemeluk dan kesatrian Kristen harus diakhiri, karena ada musuh yang lebih berbahaya dan harus segera dihancurakan: Islam dan kaum Muslimin. Ia juga mengiming-iming dengan bujukan surgawi, bahwa siapa yang berangkat ke medan perang kan dibebaskan dari seluruh dosa dan di jamin akan mendapat surga. Hasilnya, ribuan kaum Kristiani berangkat menuju Palestina dengan kemarahan. Dan setibanya di sana, terjadi pembantaian besar-besaran atas penduduk Yerussalem dan Palestina.
Selama dua hari penyerbuan terjadi pembantaian yang tak bisa diterima akal sehat dan rasa kemanusiaan. Sebanyak 40.000 penduduk Palestina terbantai. Beberapa sejarawan menggambarkan, saat itu darah menggenangi tanah Yerusalem. Ada yang menyebut darah menggenang setinggi mata kaki, bahkan ada yang menggambarkan darah menggenang hingga lutut manusia dewasa. Tentara berperang dengan motivasi mendapatkan emas dan permata, dan juga banyak para kesatria Prancis tercatat membelah perut korban-korban mereka. Merka mencari emas atau permata yang kemungkinan di telan penduduk Palestina sebagai upaya penyelamatan harta.
Setelah mereka menguasai tanah Palestina, pasukan Salib yang terdiri dari banyak unsur mulai mendirikan kelompoknya masing-masing. Mereka tergabung dalam ordo-ordo tertentu. Para anggota ordo ini datang dari seluruh tanah Eropa, yang ditampung di biara-biara tertentu dan berlatih cara-cara militer di dalam biara tersebut. Dan satu dari sekian ordo yang sangat mencuat namanya adalah Ordo Knight of Templar.
Knight of Templar juga disebut sebagai tentara miskin Pengikut Yesus Kristus dan Kuil Sulaiman. Disebut miskin karena tergambar dari logo yang mereka gunakan, seperti dua tentara yang menunggang seekor keledai. Untuk menunjukkan bahwa mereka miskin, sampai-sampai satu keledai harus dinaiki dua orang tentara Knight of Templar. Bahkan tercatat, mereka dipaksa untuk makan tiga kali saja dalam semingu. Sedangkan nama Kuil Sulaiman mereka pakai karena mereka menjadikan markas mereka yang dipercayai sebagai situs runtuhnya Kuil Sulaiman atau Solomon Temple. Tapi sesungguhnya, pemilihan markas di bukit ini bukan sebuah kebetulan yang bersifat geografis semata, karena para pendiri ordo Knight of Templar sesunguhnya punya cirta-cita sendiri untuk mengembalikan kejayaan dan berdirinya Kuil Sulaiman sebagai tempat suci kaum Yahudi atau tempatnya kaum Mason. Sepanjang bisa terlacak, pendiri ordo ini adalah dua kesatria Prancis, yaitu Hugh de Pavens dan God frey de St Omer. Spekulasi dari kalangan sejarawan mengatakan, bahwa ada darah-darah Yahudi yang mengalir dalam tubuh dan cita-cita para pendiri Ordo Knigh of Templar. Para perwira tinggi Kristen tersebut, sesungguhnya proses convertion yang mereka lakukan hanyalah cara untuk menyelamatkan diri, dan sesungguhnya mereka masih berpegang teguh pada doktrin-doktrin Yahudi, terutama Kabbalah.
Meski mereka menamakan diri sebagai tentara miskin, sesunguhnya mereka tidak miskin sama sekali. Atau setidaknya, masa miskin itu hanya mereka rasakan di awal-awal berdirinya Knight of Templars. Dalam waktu yang singkat mereka mampu menjadi sangat kaya raya dengan jalan melakukan kontrol penuh terhadap peziarah Eropa yang datang ke Palestiana. Salah satunya adalah dengan cara merekrut anak-anak muda putra para bangsawan Eropa yang tentu saja akan melengkapi anak mereka dengan perbekalan dana yang seolah tak pernah kering jumlahnya. Mereka juga disebut sebagai perintis sistem perbankan pertama pada abad pertengahan.
Saat itu banyak orang-orang Eropa yang ingin pindah atau setidaknya berziarah ke Palestina. Dan tentu saja perjalanan yang jauh dari Eropa memerlukan bekal yang tidak sedikit. Ada yang membawa seluruh harta mereka dalam perjalanan, tapi karena tentara Salib disepanjang perjalanan hidup dalam kondisi ayng sangat mengenaskan dan mereka sangat tergiur oleh harta kekayaan, tidak jarang terjadi perampokan bahkan saling bunuh antar orang Kristen disepanjang perjalanan menuju Palestian. Lalu ditemukan cara, para peziarah tidak perlu membawa harta mereka dalam perjalanan. Mereka hanya perlu menitipkannya pada sebuah perwakilan Templar di Eropa, mencatat dan menghitung nilainya dan mereka berangkat ke Palestina berbekal catatan nilai harta yang nantinya akan ditukarkan dengan nilai uang yang sama di Palestina. Gerakan ini banyak didominasi oleh Ordo Knight of Templar yang membuat mereka sangat kaya raya karena mendapat keuntungan dari sistem bunga yang mereka kembangkan. Dan inilah embrio atau cikal bakal perbankan yang kita keanl sekarang.
Markas Knight of Templar di Prancis menjadi rumah penghimpunan harta terbesar di Eropa. Lambat laun mereka menjadi bankir bagi para Paus dan Raja. Bagaimana tidak cepat kaya, setiap tahunyya King Henry II of England mendonasikan uang untuk menanggung biaya hidup 15.000 tentara Knight of Templar dan juga Knight Hospitaler selama mereka berperang dalam Perang Salib di tahun 1170. Untuk menggambarkan betapa besarnya institusi perbankan yang dijalankan Templar, pada saat itu organisasi ini memiliki 7.000 pegawai lebih hanya untuk mengurusi masalah keuangan. Mereka juga memiliki tak kurang dari 870 istana, kastil, dan rumah-rumah para bangsawan yang terbentang dari London hingga Yerusalem.
Karena ordo ini sangat berkuasa, lambat laun mereka mulai menampakkan ciri aslinya, yakni sebagai penganut Mason. Mereka mengembangkan doktrin dan ajaran mistik, juga kekuatan sihir di biara-biara mereka. Mereka memuja setan dan mendatangkan roh-roh untuk berkomunikasi. Apa yang mereka praktikkan ini disebut sebagai Kabbalah, sebuah tradisi mistik Yahudi kuno yang telah berkembang bahkan sejak zaman sebelum Fir’aun.
Mengetahui hal ini, Raja Prancis Philip le Bel, pada tahun 1307 mengeluarkan seruan untuk menangkap dan membubarkan ordo Knight of Templar karena dituduh telah melakukan bid’ah. Dalam perkembangannya, Paus Clement V turut bergabung untuk memerangi kaum Mason ini dengan mengeluarkan kembali vonis inquisisi. Terjadi banyak penangkapan dan interogasi, dan beberapa pimpinan Ordo Knight of Templar yang bergelar Grand Master (penyebutan ini masih dipakai sebagai tingkat tertinggi dalam gerakan Freemasonry sampai sekarang, pen) ikut menjadi korban. Dari beberapa penangkapan dan interograsi didapatkan keterangan bahwa anggota-anggota Templar telah melakukan kejahatan seksual terhadap beberapa perempuan bangsawan, melakukan sodomi, menyembah kucing, memakan daging teman-teman mereka sendiri yang sudah mati. Bahkan salah seorang saksi mata mengatakan, para Templar memperkosa perawan-perawan hingga hamil dan bayinya dibunuh dengan cara yang sadis untuk kemudian di bakar dan diambil minyaknya, dijadikan minyak suci untuk persembahan para pemimpin mereka.
Pada tahun 1307, Raja Philip IV memerintahkan penangkapan Jacques de Molay. Dan setelah melalui penyiksaan demi penyiksaan, de Molay mengakui segala ritual bid’ah yang dilakukan oleh Ordo Templar. Pada tahun 1312, Ordo Knight of Templar dilarang dan dibubarkan. Dan atas perintah Gereja dan Raja , dua tahun kemudian, yaitu pada tahun 1314, para pimpinan Templar dihukum mati, termasuk Jacques de Molay, salah satu Grand Master terpenting Ordo Templar. Jacques de Molay sendiri divonis sebagai heretic (bid’ah) atau kafir dan dihukum dengan cara dibakar hidup-hidup di depan raja Philip IV. Dan sebelum menghembuskan napasnya, de Molay mengeluarkan kata-kata bahwa Raja Philip dan Paus Clement harus mengikutinya, mati, dalam waktu satu tahun. Dan sejarah mencatat, Raja Philip IV meninggal tujuh bulan kemudian, disusul Paus Clement sebulan setelah Raja Philip mangkat.
Setelah itu terjadi pemusnahan besar-besaran, sekali lagi atas kaum Yahudi, dan kali ini bermula dengan kasus Knight of Templar atau kaum Mason. Pemusnahan ini tak hanya terjadi di Palestina, tapi juga terjadi di Eropa. Mereka diburu untuk ditangkap dan dibunuh. Sampai akhirnya mereka berhasil melarikan diri dan mendapat perlindungan dari Raja Skotlandia, Robert The Bruce yang dilantik dan menduduki singgasana Raja pada tahun 1306. Dan di tanah baru ini pula mereka menyusun kekuatan kembali. Dan Skotlandia menjadi salah satu yang menentukan dalam perkembangan gerakan Freemason.
Versi yang lebih tua dari sejarah Freemason adalah kisah yang menyebutkan pembentukan Freemasonry pada zaman Raja Israel, Herodes Agripa I yang meninggal pada tahun 44 Masehi. Freemason pada zaman ini dibentuk untuk membendung ajaran agama yang disampaikan oleh Nabi Isa as. Konon waktu itu namanya The Secret Power atau kekutan yang Tersembunyi.
Tujuan utamanya adalah memusuhi pengikut Nabi Isa, menculik mereka, membunuh, melarang penyebaran agama baru tersebut, termasuk membunuhi baya-bayi Kristen. Tapi, berkenaan dengan segala kesadisan yang dilakukan Herodes ini, para sejarawan dunia, meyakini bahwa hal tersebut hanyalah mitos belaka dalam tradisi agama Kristen. Herodes Agripa I menjalankan segala misi The Secret Power ini dibantu dua pengikut setianya, Heram Abioud sebagai Wakil Presiden gerakan dan Moab Leumi sebagai pemegang rahasia utama gerakan ini. Tapi beberapa anggota Freemason juaga mempercayai dan menarik sejauh mungkin sejarah mereka ke masa lalu, bahkan hingga ke zaman Fir’aun. Itu pula yang menjadi salah satu penjelasan mengapa mereka kerap kali menggunakan simbol-simbol Mesir Kuno dalam tradisi dan aktivitas ritual mereka, seperti penggunaan Dewa Horus, Piramida, Matahari dan berbagai simbol Mesir lainnya. Penggunaan ini bermula dari penggalian Kuil Sulaiman oleh para Templa dan penemuan doktrin dan ajaran Kabbalah yang terus-menerus mereka eksplorasi dan diajarkan dari mulut ke mulut. Penggalian ini begitu serius mereka lakukan sehingga kelak akan mempengaruhi cara pandang kaum Templar dan juga rencana mereka pada kehidupan dunia.
Bahkan yang cukup mengejutkan adalah, dalam manuskrip-manuskrip kuno Mason dikatakan, orang pertama Mason adalah Adam! Kejadian itu berawal ketika Adam dan Hawa memakan daun dari pohon terlarang di taman surga. Daun yang disebut sebagia daun pengetahuan, dan karena itu pula Tuhan mereka melarang mereka memakannya. Dr.Albert Mackei, seorang anggota Mason dengan tingkatan 33 derajat dalam Encyclopedia of Freemasonry manuliskan, daun pengetahuan itu kelak diturunkan pada dua anak Adam dan Hawa, Seth dan Nimrod dengan kisah The Tower of Babel. Kedua anak ini pula menyusun bahasa untuk ilmu pengetahuan yang akan diturunkan kepada manusia-manusia berikutnya. Tapi, dalam perkamen-perkamen tua itu disebutkan bahwa, Tuhan dengan sengaja mengacaukan bahasa manusia yang mengakibatkan rahasia ilmu pengetahuan, yang diturunkan Adam dengan memakan daun dari pohon terlarang, hilang dan tak diketahui manusia-manusia setelah Seth dan Nimrod. Dan itu pula yang menjadi alasan kedua kaum ini memerangi Tuhan.
Bahkan menurut Talmud, setan-setan adalah keturunan dari Adam dan Hawa. Setelah Adam diusir dari surga, ia enggan mencampuri istrinya, Hawa. Dan pada saat itulah, dua setan perempuan mendatanggi Adam yang langsung digauli keduanya oleh Adam. Dalam Talmud disebutkan, Adam menggauli setan perempuan bernama Lelet selama lebih dari 130 tahun lamanya dan melahirkan banyak anak-anak setan begitu pula dengan Hawa selama ditinggal oleh Adam, Hawa juga digauli oleh setan laki-laki dan melahirkan banyak anak setan.

Philippine Leader Rodrigo Duterte Says He Has Neuromuscular Disease

 Cache   

Philippine Leader Rodrigo Duterte Says He Has Neuromuscular DiseaseMANILA, Philippines -- President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines has revealed that he has a neuromuscular disease that has led to a slew of medical problems, including making his eye droop.Duterte, who was in Russia for a state visit, told the Filipino community there Saturday night that he has myasthenia gravis, a chronic autoimmune disease that leads to skeletal muscle weakness. He said the disease ran in his family.The revelation came amid continued public speculation about his health. There have been periods when the famously bombastic president has been out of the public eye for days, prompting headlines guessing about his whereabouts and even rumors of his death.But his communications officers have said that Duterte, 74, like any other older person, needs his own personal time.The president revealed the ailment after he apparently made a joke about not being able to look straight at a woman with whom he had danced a duet during the event in Moscow."I have a talent," Duterte said, according to official transcripts provided by his office afterward. "When I look at you, my other eye droops. Do you see? The other eye is smaller. It goes where it wants."He added: "Actually, that's myasthenia gravis. It's a nerve malfunction."Duterte said his grandfather had also had the disease, adding, "So I believe, really, in genetics."The disease often affects the muscles that control the eyes, facial expression, speaking and swallowing, according to the Philippine Medical Association.Duterte came to power in 2016 vowing to rid the country of drug dealers and to wipe out other crimes. Since then, the Philippines' war on drugs has led to thousands of killings allegedly by police and vigilantes, which rights groups have denounced as an atrocity.This year, the United Nations' Human Rights Council voted to examine the thousands of killings linked to Duterte's campaign.Over the years, his public outbursts have included insults against women, the United States and God.In May, the president dropped out of sight for a week, prompting concerns on social media. His aides later tried to quell the rumors by releasing photographs of Duterte having breakfast.One image showed him with the latest issue of a newspaper, suggesting an effort to prove that the picture had been taken on the same day.Last year, Duterte revealed that he had undergone an endoscopy and colonoscopy and that doctors had found he had, he said, "a bad case of Barrett."He was referring to Barrett's esophagus, a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, in which the contents of the stomach flow backward into the esophagus.The president has also said he has Buerger's disease, which leads to constriction of blood vessels in the arms and legs.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

Ginger Baker, Cream’s volatile drummer, dies at 80

 Cache   

LONDON – Ginger Baker, the volatile and propulsive drummer for Cream and other bands who wielded blues power and jazz finesse and helped shatter boundaries of time, tempo and style in popular music, died Sunday at age 80, his family said.

With blazing eyes, orange-red hair and a temperament to match, the London native ranked with The Who’s Keith Moon and Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham as the embodiment of musical and personal fury. Using twin bass drums, Baker fashioned a pounding, poly-rhythmic style uncommonly swift and heavy that inspired and intimidated countless musicians. But every beat seemed to mirror an offstage eruption – whether his violent dislike of Cream bandmate Jack Bruce or his on-camera assault of a documentary maker, Jay Bulger, whom he smashed in the nose with his walking stick.

Bulger would call the film, released in 2012, “Beware of Mr. Baker.”

Baker’s family said on Twitter that he died Sunday: “We are very sad to say that Ginger has passed away peacefully in hospital this morning.”

His daughter Nettie confirmed that Baker died in Britain but gave no other details. The family had said on Sept. 25 that Baker was critically ill in the hospital.

While Rolling Stone magazine once ranked him the third-greatest rock drummer of all time, behind Moon and Bonham, Baker had contempt for Moon and others he dismissed as “bashers” without style or background. Baker and his many admirers saw him as a rounded, sophisticated musician – an arranger, composer and student of the craft, absorbing sounds from around the world. He had been playing jazz since he was a teenager and spent years in Africa in the 1970s, forming a close friendship with the Nigerian musician-activist Fela Kuti.

“He was so unique and had such a distinctive personality,” Stewart Copeland of the Police told www.musicradar.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/5903&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com in 2013. “Nobody else followed in his footsteps. Everybody tried to be John Bonham and copy his licks, but it’s rare that you hear anybody doing the Ginger Baker thing.”

But many fans thought of Baker as a rock star, who teamed with Eric Clapton and Bruce in the mid-1960s to become Cream – one of the first supergroups and first power trios. All three were known individually in the London blues scene and together they helped make rock history by elevating instrumental prowess above the songs themselves, even as they had hits with “Sunshine of Your Love,” “I Feel Free” and “White Room.”

Cream was among the most successful acts of its time, selling more than 10 million records. But by 1968 Baker and Bruce had worn each other out and even Clapton had tired of their deafening, marathon jams, including the Baker showcase “Toad,” one of rock’s first extended drum solos. Cream split up at the end of the year, departing with two sold-out shows at London’s Albert Hall. When told by Bulger that he was a founding father of heavy metal, Baker snarled that the genre “should have been aborted.”

To the surprise of many, especially Clapton, he and Baker were soon part of another super group, Blind Faith, which also featured singer-keyboardist Stevie Winwood and bassist Ric Grech.

As Clapton would recall, he and Winwood had been playing informally when Baker turned up (Baker would allege that Clapton invited him). Named Blind Faith by a rueful Clapton, the band was overwhelmed by expectations from the moment it debuted in June 1969 before some 100,000 at a concert in London’s Hyde Park. It split up after completing just one, self-titled album, as notable for its cover photo of a topless young girl as for its music. A highlight from the record: Baker’s cymbal splashes on Winwood’s lyrical ballad “Can’t Find My Way Home.”

“Beneath his somewhat abrasive exterior, there was a very sensitive human being with a heart of gold,” Winwood said in a statement Sunday.

From the 1970s on, Baker was ever more unpredictable. He moved to Nigeria, took up polo, drove a Land Rover across the Sahara, lived on a ranch in South Africa, divorced his first wife and married three more times.

He recorded with Kuti and other Nigerians, jammed with Art Blakey, Elvin Jones and other jazz drummers and played with John Lydon’s Public Image Ltd. He founded Ginger Baker’s Air Force, which cost a fortune and imploded after two albums. He endured his old enemy, Bruce, when Cream was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and for Cream reunion concerts a decade later. Bruce died in 2014.

Baker continued to perform regularly in his 70s despite arthritis, heart trouble, hearing loss dating from his years with Cream and lung disease from smoking. A stranger to no vice, immodesty included, he called his memoir “Hellraiser: The Autobiography of the World’s Greatest Drummer.”

“John Bonham once made a statement that there were only two drummers in British rock ’n’ roll; himself and Ginger Baker,” Baker wrote in his book. “My reaction to this was, ‘You cheeky little bastard!’”

Born in 1939, Peter Edward Baker was the son of a bricklayer killed during World War II when Ginger was just 4. His father left behind a letter that Ginger Baker would quote from: “Use your fists; they’re your best pals so often.”

Baker was a drummer from early on, even rapping out rhythms on his school desk as he mimicked the big band music he loved and didn’t let the occasional caning from a teacher deter him. As a teenager, he was playing in local groups and was mentored by percussionist Phil Seamen.

“At this party, there was a little band and all the kids chanted at me, ‘Play the drums!’”, Baker told The Independent in 2009. “I’d never sat behind a kit before, but I sat down – and I could play! One of the musicians turned round and said, ‘Bloody hell, we’ve got a drummer’, and I thought, ‘Bloody hell, I’m a drummer.’”

Baker came of age just as London was learning the blues, with such future superstars as Clapton, Mick Jagger and Jimmy Page among the pioneers. Baker joined Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, where he met (and soon disliked, for allegedly playing too loud) the Scottish-born bassist Jack Bruce, with whom he was thrown together again as members of the popular British group the Graham Bond Organization.

Clapton, meanwhile, was London’s hottest guitarist, thanks to his work with the Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Blues Breakers, his extraordinary speed and agility inspiring “Clapton is God” graffiti. Clapton, Baker and Bruce would call their band Cream because they considered themselves the best musicians around.

“Oh for god’s sake, I’ve never played rock,” Baker told the blog JazzWax in 2013. “Cream was two jazz players and a blues guitarist playing improvised music. We never played the same thing two nights running. Jack and I had been in jazz bands for years. All that stuff I did on the drums in Cream didn’t come from drugs, either. It was from me. It was jazz.”


          

America’s illustrator: Norman Rockwell exhibit – with paintings, posters and magazine covers – opens at the MAC

 Cache   

“I was showing the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed.” – Norman Rockwell

Mention the name “Norman Rockwell,” and different thoughts bubble up for different people.

The gawky New England artist charmed millions of Americans for nearly 50 years as the Saturday Evening Post’s most beloved cover illustrator and chronicler of small-town life. At the same time, many critics snubbed Rockwell as too cliché, sentimental or homogenous to be taken seriously.

“Norman Rockwell is arguably America’s most famous artist ever,” said Wes Jessup, executive director of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, where a new exhibition, “Norman Rockwell’s America,” opened this weekend. “Who was more famous? Warhol? No. Warhol was actually a big collector of Rockwell.”

Rockwell was born in New York City in 1894 and died in 1978 in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, at age 84. He lived and worked during some of the most impactful movements in modern art history such as impressionism, cubism, surrealism and abstract expressionism.

But he forged his own way as an illustrator. He once said, “Some people have been kind enough to call me a fine artist. I’ve always called myself an illustrator.”

“I’m 50, and when I was in college, Rockwell was considered retrograde. He was overlooked,” Jessup said. “So I think there is a rediscovery coming from my generation and younger people.”

Last month, singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey released her new album, provocatively titled “Norman (expletive) Rockwell.” The moniker suggests that maybe everything in America is not quite so perfect after all.

There is even a term bolstering Rockwell’s lasting impact on popular culture: “Rockwellian.” It can refer to anything quaint, idealistic or sentimental such as a “Rockwellian childhood” or a “Rockwellian holiday celebration.”

‘Vivid and affectionate portraits’

No matter where one places Rockwell in the canon, his depictions of everyday life made him the most widely circulated and universally beloved American artist of the 20th century. Rockwell’s “vivid and affectionate portraits of our country” garnered him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

The MAC exhibition will use Rockwell’s singular art and enduring vision of a hopeful America to chronicle the nation’s history and examine what constitutes the American spirit. “Norman Rockwell America” is a show of 22 oil paintings, seven charcoal or graphite studies, original posters and all 323 Post magazine covers spanning six decades. It’s the first solo exhibition of Rockwell’s paintings and covers to visit the Inland Northwest.

The exhibition is arranged in chronological order, making the stages of his career recognizable and his images more poignant. The original works give viewers the chance to observe Rockwell’s superb craftsmanship and attention to detail, characteristics sometimes overlooked in the more widely seen reproductions.

In a masterful style almost photograph-like, and in hyper-real detail, Rockwell painted everyday people in ordinary situations. His goal was to tell a story, in a single picture, armed only with a paintbrush.

He lived through two World Wars, the Great Depression, Korean War and Vietnam. But the stories he told most often were relentlessly optimistic, depicting a simpler world, one worth fighting for.

In Rockwell’s paintings, the nation’s rich tapestry is united by holiday rituals, faith and family life. Rockwell’s America is a place where honest, hard-working people endeavor to live rather than a world in which they really live. As Peter Schjedahl wrote in the New Yorker, “He didn’t illustrate Middle America. He invented Middle America.”

For example, readers of the Post delighted in Rockwell’s paintings of humorous childhood escapades. The iconic images include the illustration of the little boys running while yanking on their clothes after sneaking a dip in the local waterhole, the little girl with a black eye sitting outside the principal’s office with a huge grin spread on her face, and the young runaway chatting with a cop at the soda fountain counter with his bundle of clothes tied to a stick in full view under his barstool.

There are lots of intergenerational interactions, too: a grandfather picking up a bat to hit a few balls with the little ones, the daughter watching mom put on makeup at her vanity table and the parents putting their kids to bed. In 1955, Post readers voted the 1951 Thanksgiving issue their all-time favorite cover. The illustration depicts a woman and a young boy saying grace in a crowded restaurant as they are observed by other people at their table.

‘Extraordinary in the ordinary’

“He found the extraordinary in the ordinary moments because when you get to the truth of life, I think what we really remember is how beautiful it was to have a cup of tea with that person,” said Rockwell’s granddaughter Abigail Rockwell, who conducted a phone interview from her home back East.

“Yes, you will remember the Taj Mahal after you visit, but don’t we really go back to the small moments and think, ‘Oh God, I miss having tea with that person?’”

One of the paintings hanging in the MAC exhibit is titled “The Party After the Party.” Rockwell lovingly created an intimate scene in which a granddaughter kneels on the parlor floor in front of her grandmother’s chair. The pair holds hands as the young woman, still clad in her finery, tells Grandma all that happened at the party.

“Yes, I just got chills!” said Abigail Rockwell, now the de facto historian of the family. “That is a really sweet and memorable moment. That is part of the Edison Mazda series (of advertisements Rockwell illustrated) in the 1920s. I’ve always thought it’s some of his best work.”

Abigail Rockwell, who also is a successful jazz singer, will travel to Spokane to give a talk at the MAC on Nov. 7 at 5:30 p.m. and lead a private tour. Tickets are $25. She also will sign copies of the recently re-released autobiography by her grandfather, “My Adventures as an Illustrator: The Definitive Edition.” Abigail Rockwell has spent much of the last several years researching and updating the book. Her goal was to bust false myths and preserve her grandfather’s legacy.

One of the biggest misconceptions she said that she finds is that her “Pop,” as she calls him, painted only white America. However, a look at some of Rockwell’s most iconic works belies that notion.

In 1961, the artist painted “The Golden Rule,” showing people of different religious faiths and ethnic backgrounds worshipping together. However, Rockwell himself once recalled being directed to paint out a black person from a group picture in the Post. The policy at the time only allowed the portrayal of African Americans in service jobs next to white people.

After leaving the Post in 1963, Rockwell appeared eager to refocus his efforts on supporting the Civil Rights movement. In 1964, he produced his iconic painting “The Problem We All Live With.” It depicts Ruby Bridges, a 6-year-old African American girl, on her way to an all-white public school during the New Orleans desegregation crisis. Due to threatened violence, she is being escorted by federal marshals. On the wall behind her are scrawled a racial slur and the letters “KKK.”

‘Ruining his legacy’

“Pop had the bravery to put those words on the wall,” Abigail said. “People don’t realize how controversial it was for him to do that. I saw the angry letters castigating him for ‘ruining his legacy.’ ”

One of Rockwell’s proudest moments, according to his granddaughter, was when he received a lifetime membership card to the NAACP. More than 30 years later, his portrait of Bridges was installed in the hall outside the Oval Office at the White House for several months during the Obama administration. Reproductions of this and more of Rockwell’s Civil Rights era paintings will be on display at the MAC as part of the current exhibition.

Another project Rockwell undertook after leaving the Post was a commission to paint a portrait of Abraham Lincoln for Spokane’s Lincoln First Federal Savings and Loan. The bank’s CEO, the late Spokane resident Donald P. Lindsay, had the idea to hire America’s most famous artist.

“My dad thought it was no big deal to write Norman Rockwell and just ask him to do it,” recalled Lindsay’s eldest daughter, Karen Warrick. “And it worked.”

For $4,000, Rockwell agreed to produce the 7-foot piece, taller even than Lincoln himself. Finished in 1965, the portrait depicts the 16th president as a young man on the farm dressed in work clothes holding an ax in one hand and a book in the other. “Lincoln the Railsplitter” was used to market the Spokane bank and all the branches throughout the state. Jar openers, golf balls, calendars and stationery all bore Rockwell’s Lincoln image.

The original painting hung for two decades in the Lincoln First Federal Bank lobby located in what is now the Lincoln building at Riverside and Lincoln. After the bank changed hands, the piece later made its way to the private collection of former presidential candidate H. Ross Perot. It was eventually sold at auction to the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, in 2006 for $1.6 million.

The MAC has gathered letters, photos, bank memorabilia and a reproduction of “Lincoln the Railsplitter” to include in the exhibition. “It’s exciting that one of the most famous paintings of Abraham Lincoln that was ever done was done by one of America’s most famous artists and that it originated right here in Spokane,” Jessup said.

Warrick said that she hopes the Rockwell exhibit accomplishes what the artist himself wanted: to rekindle the American spirit. “I just hope that a lot of people are reassured that we care for one another in this country, that we are all the things that Rockwell brings out in his paintings,” Warrick said. “You wrap that around the integrity of a Lincoln and maybe young people will be inspired and think: ‘Is that what we used to look like in this country?’ ”

Oakland hipster slams restaurant in RECORD TIME, so John Birdsall is now obsolete

 Cache   
Flora, a cute little restaurant in downtown Oakland, has been open for approximately four hours, so of course it has already been declared DEAD AND PASSE AND LAME by a snide local hipster who has better taste in restaurants than you, because you live on the wrong side of the Caldecott Tunnel and work in an office and are probably wearing Dockers.

Kevin Cook, food writer at Novometro.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/6491&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, hasn't actually been to Flora, but he has read another writer's blog about when she went to Flora earlier this afternoon, and he has already had it up to here with the restaurant, which he vows to never visit again, or ever, since he's never actually been in the first place.

Based on seven pictures and a 193-word review, Cook declared, in the comments of course, the following:
I will never understand why a place like flora attracts anyone. I don’t care how new the kitchen staff is–making a decent vinaigrette shouldn’t take any practice or time for a professional. Tuna melt? Come on, this place sounds like an upscale togos for the walnut creet office worker lunch crowd.
To recap: Kevin Cook does not understand why Flora does not throw in the towel and shut down and admit it's over, already, since it has managed to ruin its reputation in the four hours it has been open by making a bad vinaigrette and, uh, serving sandwiches, to people who work in offices. And possibly live in Walnut Creek. Ew.

This is the glorious future of food criticism, which shows why reviews printed on dead trees by so-called professionals who secretly love sandwiches and Contra Costa County and cubicles are now obsolete forever, oh holy god I want John Birdsall back they laid him off I didn't want to tell you but there it is The End.

(Seriously, the East Bay Express laid off Birdsall and six other staffers, including Kara Platoni.)

CRIMES PARFAITS - CAPITAINE LOUISE BONNE: À LA VIE, À LA MORT/TROP BEAU POUR ÊTRE VRAI (FRANCE 3)

 Cache   
[Swiss transmission order] French pubcaster France 3's detective drama Crimes parfaits is a "semi-anthology" where a murderer known from the start thinks he/she has committed the perfect crime but a detective (different in every couple of episodes) proves him/her wrong. 

It's the concept of the inverted detective story, popularized by Columbo though created in literature many years before the famous lieutenant.

The crime dramas of France 3 are a fully-fledged genre, recognizable from the postcard drone shots of their regional locations, the same actors jumping from one to another and stories sometimes so similar that you wonder if they are generated by some artificial intelligence. The channel is the happy home of Commissaire Magellan, Mongeville, Meurtres à... or ratings juggernaut Capitaine Marleau. The later is the most popular TV series in France, which certainly explains why Crimes parfaits is essentially a copycat factory of the gendarme played by Corinne Masiero.

One of Marleau's relatives is Police captain Louise Bonne ("Comme la poire"), played by actress and humorist Julie Ferrier. Introduced a year ago, she returns with her deputy and protégé Fatou (Wendy Nieto) in À la vie, à la mort and Trop beau pour être vraiJuliette Petiot (Louise's teenage daughter Zoé) and Sophie de la Rochefoucauld, very funny as the ill-named pathologist Gracieuse, are back too. Humorist (another one!) and actor Mathieu Madénian joins the main cast as Grégoire, a sympathetic procureur.

The two episodes, penned by Marie-Anne Le Pezennec and helmed by Nicolas Herdt, try to show a bit of ambition within the limits of both the series format and the labored humour of the main character. Arié Elmaleh guest stars as Bruno Aubert, the murderer of À la vie, à la mort. Bruno is the director of a funeral home founded by his father. He gets rid of Alex, his best friend, who's also the godfather of his daughter. The man ends up embalmed! Capitaine Bonne and Fatou investigate. The feud between Louise and her husband escalates

Arié Elmaleh does an impressive rendition of the closest thing to a France 3 version of Dexter Morgan (Dexter) at the beginning of the episode. Also starring Joyce Bibring (Marine), Louisiane Gouverneur (Annabelle), Yann Pradal (Alex), Virginia Anderson (Cécilia), Antoine Cholet (Romain), Serge Feuillard (Gérard) and Simon Thomas (Joël). Sylvain Damal, the victim of Trop beau pour être vrai, is described by his colleagues, friends and neighbours as a sort of saint and even a hero. The wife of this director of a fish trading company and two of his employees beg to differ.

They plot his murder and make it look like a drowning caused by jellyfishes. One of the guest stars is the talented Christelle Reboul as Violette, a role far away from Amélie in Nos chers voisins (2012-2017). Since Capitaine Marleau, it seems that a lot of crime dramas of France 3 have their dedicated teams of gagmen. Also with Armelle Deutsch (Hélène), Jérôme Robart (Lucas), Christophe Favre (Marcel), Jérémy Gillet (Hugo), François Briault (Sylvain) and Vincent Bercholz (Mayor). Developed with Toma de Matteis. Produced by Caroline Lassa for Salsa Productions.

Co-produced by France.tvst#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/7667&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comudio and France Télévisions with Be-Films and RTBF (Télévision belge). With the participation of RTS Radio Télévision Suisse. Music by Maïdi Roth and Franck Pilant. Additional music by Flemming Nordkrog. Theme music of Crimes parfaits by Jean-Pierre Taïeb. Filmed with the support of Département de la Charente-Maritime.

WTF: How Do Big-Box Stores and Airports Deal With Nuisance Birds?

 Cache   
Walk into any big-box store, shopping mall or other sprawling expanse of indoor retail space this time of year, and you're likely to spot a few wild birds flitting about or roosting in the rafters. Winged creatures are especially common in the al fresco garden centers of Home Depot, Lowe's and Walmart — torn bags of birdseed are a likely draw — though wild birds are also known to take up residence in supermarkets and airport terminals. For animal lovers, the presence of uninvited guests inside these cathedrals of consumption may feel like a mischievous act of defiance, as though the animal kingdom were flipping us humans the bird, as it were, saying, "You can wall it in but you can't keep us out!" It may seem fairly innocuous to find sparrows chirping in the hardware department or starlings dive-bombing the home appliances. But there are legitimate health concerns when birds take up shop in a mall or supermarket. So, how do retailers rid themselves of these feathered friends? Recently, a Seven Days staffer heard from a friend that the birds are dispatched with BB guns. Because this method sounded both inhumane and impractical, we reached out to several large retail chains, including Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, Shaw's and Price Chopper Supermarkets. Only Price Chopper answered our query. "Birds, unfortunately, are a part of doing business when you're in retail," said Maureen Murphy, manager of consumer services and trends for Price Chopper, headquartered in Schenectady, N.Y. As she explained, the birds typically come in the same way the merchandise does — through the loading docks. But when asked if Price Chopper and other supermarkets use BB guns to dispatch their guests, she seemed revolted by the suggestion. "God, no! I know that we sure as heck don't ... We make sure they're taken care of humanely," Murphy said. "But when they're in our store, we have to be sure they're removed ... because, obviously, food safety is a big issue for us." Indeed, having birds pecking at the salad bar or leaving droppings in the produce section is more than a fowl nuisance. It's also a health code violation. So, as soon as a store manager detects one, she explained, they contact a third-party vendor to catch and remove the bird from the store. That task may fall to Cody Baciuska, a wildlife biologist and co-owner of Loomacres Wildlife…

ご質問の内容について、話題になったそもそもの内容が公にするべきものではなく、個人間で解決すべきものであり第三者が関わるべき内容ではないと判断しております。

 以下僕の私見

スプラトゥーン界隈は、有志の大会における運営など、善意によって成り立っている場面が多く、そこに迷惑をかける行為をするものは「厄介者」のレッテルを張られ、敬遠される傾向にある。

界隈にターゲットを絞った「スプラトゥーン特化型Vチューバー」が、よりによって界隈から敬遠される「運営サイドさんへの迷惑行為」を行うって、今後の運営に関してどういう青写真があるのか不思議に思っちゃうね。

どんな判断や、金をドブに捨てる気か。

そして、ゲーミングモニターを販売してる企業が、その顧客層にリーチするためにスポンサーになってる、親密さからして運営そのものにかかわっているのかもと思ったりしますが、そんなVチューバーが、わざわざ顧客層に不興を買う態度をとって、それをふわっとしたお叱り(質問箱での回答)に留めるのも、不思議な対応だなぁと個人的には思います。

Why We Travel - Lesley Blanch - Journey Into the Mind's Eye

 Cache   
"I must have been about four years old when Russia took hold of me with giant hands. That grip has never lessened. For me, the love of my heart, the fulfilment of the senses and the kingdom of the mind all met here. This book is the story of my obsession."
This isn't a review - at least, not a proper one. It's a post that I feel ought to be made, because today I started crying in public, and it's been a good few years since the ending of a book made me do that. But Lesley Blanch's Journey into the Mind's Eye - equal parts travel narrative and elegy for lost love - had me bawling. It's ostensibly about Blanch (who is in many ways my Career Idol, possibly one of the best prose stylists of the twentieth century, and all too often dismissed as a "great life" when, indeed, her writing is easily as good or better than that of Paddy Leigh Fermor) and her search for the "imaginary" Russia - the idealized version of a country she learned about from her much-older Russian lover, known only as the Traveller.

But it's about so much more than that. It's about seeking a lost love, and coming to terms with loss, and about that imaginary city that we look for when we travel, which is never the place we come to, and which is always nevertheless what draws us from the places we leave behind. It's about the "journey into the mind's eye" we take when we travel, when we find that our journey takes us nowhere new, but only deeper into ourselves. It's about how love can shape us, infect us, and make everything that comes after us about that love.

For me, at least, as for Blanch - love and wandering are inseparable. The perfect place and the perfect Other - they're all part of that endless process of homecoming, of finding that place where we can set down our household gods, where we can belong. That's the theme that's been running through the collection of short stories I've been working on this autumn - that's how Blanch sees her travels: at once an encounter with the profound otherness of her love and a realisation that her experience is ultimately her story, imprinted upon that otherness.

It's a relief, too, to read a female travel writer (although, full disclosure, I can't get through Freya Stark). The Great Men of the business - PLF as the greatest offender, though Philip Glazebook much less so - often ignore this subjectivity. They're privileged enough to barrel through mountain passes without fear of rape or abduction; often, there's a wilful blindness about how much of what they see is of their own creation. Lesley, like the also-marvelous Bettina Selby, like I try to be (I'd be the first to admit that my article in the Spectator is as much about me as it is about Tbilisi itself), is utterly open and unapologetic about that constant dialectic between traveler and place, between storyteller and story-subject, that happens when we travel. About that relationship between the place we see in our mind's eye, loaded down with cultural baggage and emotional resonance and easy orientalizing (because we want, after all, otherness, or we wouldn't be traveling at all), and the place as it is, which perhaps is no more home to us than the places we're running from.

So there you go. Go read Lesley Blanch. 
Because she made me cry.

Inspiration of the Day: Merab Abramishvili

 Cache   
Every now and then, I come across a piece of art - be it a painting, a piece of music, or a novel - that resonates with me so strongly that all my pseudo-critical, academic, footnoting, jargonizing, enframing bullshit breaks down, and there is nothing I can say but "yes."

The exhibit of the paintings of late-Soviet artist Merab Abramishvili, located at a gallery in Mtatsminda, was once such exhibition. I came across the paintings at the insistence of my (marvelously!) mad friend M., a tweed-sporting composer-poet-displaced-intellectual-extraordinaire living in Bolnisi while embarking upon any number of great artistic-poetic-cultural projects to bring about a new Romantic age in the Caucasus via a shaky Internet connection. Because M., in addition to being mad, is also usually right, I succumbed to his insistence that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the works of an oft-forgotten Soviet artist, whitewashed in the wake of the drive towards a New Georgia. (M. has requested that I point out that Abramishvili is "the greatest artist since Raphael")

Some holy combination of Pompeiian fresco, Indian tapestry, and Medieval illumination, Abramishvili's paintings restore the holy mystery of the world. Freely intertwining Indian motifs with Christian iconography, they suggest a primal unity in which the world is not some formless chaos of meaning, but is rather  "charged with the grandeur of God". I actually went twice (doubling back for the programme catalog) - many of the paintings belong to the Abramishvili family, and are hence (tragically) no longer publicly viewable. (Which is entirely heartbreaking; I'm half-tempted to track them down, sending them a pleading email to allow me to gaze upon beauty bare for an hour a week a teatime...)

I've noticed the prevalence of genuinely good, engaging contemporary art in the Caucasus over the past few years. It tends to be far more willing to engage with history - breaking rules consciously rather than as a Shoreditch-gallery gimmick - than the contemporary UK/S art I've seen, and is far better crafted to boot.


If anyone knows of any good exhibitions on in Tbilisi, do let me know - I haven't seen a bad one yet

Quick Bites: Last Call for Ramen Nagi's Tokyo Sukiyaki King...

 Cache   
Ever wished for tender strips of savory beef on your ramen? Well, the ramen gods have heard you...


Ramen or Sukiyaki? Now you can have both with the Limited Edition Tokyo Sukiyaki King from Ramen Nagi for an exciting and new ramen experience.


It's another flavorful creation from Ramen Nagi, one more tasty innovation in a long list of special Limited Edition ramen (for more on Ramen Nagi's creative ramen variants, see my posts, Perfect Pair: The Ebi King, Ramen Nagi's Newest Limited Edition Ramen from two years back, A Spicy Encounter with Ramen Nagi's Nagoya King and Last Chance for Ramen Nagi's Limited Edition Oyster King... from 2017). And perfect too for the constant rains this past month.

Ramen and the rainy weather just matches up well, and Ramen Nagi's regular offerings hits the spot all the time (more on Ramen Nagi's signature ramen on my posts, The Original King: Ramen Nagi's Classic Butao on a Rainy Day and Ramen Nagi: Your Favorite Ramen Opens at Robinsons Galleria). But when you have the rich and mildly sweet notes of tender beef sukiyaki on a comforting bowl of ramen, you won't mind the usual sudden downpour with Ramen Nagi's Tokyo Sukiyaki King


Pair your ramen with Ramen Nagi's popular Gyoza (P 235), savory dumplings served with fresh and crisp bean sprouts...


...befo#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/11972&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comre indulging in a sip of the rich broth. The new Tokyo Sukiyaki King (P 495) has the classic tonkotsu broth as the base, topped with thin strips of tender beef, tofu and the comfortingly familiar sweet notes of traditional beef sukiyaki. The bowl is finished with an egg yolk, just like sukiyaki, for that extra punch of creaminess.


The thick milky broth delivers a creamy and unctuous finish with each sip, draping the palate with a savory richness. The tender beef adds a whole new level of both depth and flavor to the bowl of noodles. That distinct sweetness from the special sukiyaki sauce completes the flavors. Sadly, the Limited Edition Tokyo Sukiyaki King will only be available until September 30. But if you happen to be near any of Ramen Nagi's branches, go have a bowl of the new Limited Edition Tokyo Sukiyaki King...and#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/11972&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com enjoy the rains.

The Catholic Church and the Scouts

 Cache   
The Roman Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts are lobbying against legislation to give survivors of childhood sexual abuse more time to sue. Marisa Kwiatkowski and John Kelly at USA Today:
In an era when many advocates use social media and online petitions to garner widespread support, the Catholic Church instead focuses on the audience it already has. In Philadelphia, the archdiocese coordinated the distribution of letters to all 219 parishes that warned of "serious dangers" posed by the bill and urged people to pick up additional information at the exits after Mass – and contact their lawmakers.
Since 2009 alone, state lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have tried at least 200 times to extend the civil statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases, according to a USA TODAY analysis of legislation filed in all 50 states, part of a two-year look at model legislation in partnership with the Arizona Republic and the Center for Public Integrity. 
The bills have borrowed from and built on each other, sharing common phrases and ideas.

Many special interests, including the insurance industry, oppose efforts to give survivors more time to sue. But two organizations are uniquely positioned to wield influence because of their deep ties to local communities: the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America.

Sezioni Unite: QUANDO IL DIRITTO ALL’OBLIO PREVALE SUL DIRITTO DI CRONACA

 Cache   
Le Sezioni Unite della Corte di Cassazione con la decisione 19681 pubblicata il 22 luglio 2019, invocate dalla terza sezione civile della stessa Corte di Cassazione hanno enunciato il fondamentale principio di diritto per cui“in tema di rapporti tra il diritto alla riservatezza (nella sua particolare connotazione del cosiddetto diritto all’oblio) il diritto alla rievocazione storica di fatti e vicende concernenti eventi del passato, il giudice di merito – ferma restando la libertà della scelta editoriale in ordine a tale titolo rievocazione, espressione della libertà di stampa e di informazione protetta e garantita dall’articolo 21 della costituzione – il compito di valutare l’interesse pubblico, concreto ed attuale alla menzione degli elementi identificativi delle persone che di quei fatti e di quelle vicende furono protagonisti. Tale menzione deve ritenersi lecita solo nell’ipotesi in cui si riferisca a personaggi che destino nel momento presente l’interesse della collettività, sia per ragioni di notorietà che per il ruolo pubblico rivestito; In caso contrario, prevale il diritto degli interessati alla riservatezza rispetto ad avvenimenti del passato che riferiscano nella dignità e nell’onore e dei quali non si sia ormai spenta la memoria collettiva”. Il caso tre origine dalla citazione in giudizio di un quotidiano e della giornalista ad opera di chi, 27 anni prima, era stato condannato per omicidio della moglie e aveva scontato una pena detentiva di 12 anni. In particolare, l’attore contestava che nell’articolo apparso sul quotidiano convenuto, veniva espressamente fatto il suo nome e quello della defunta moglie, in tal modo determinando in lui un profondo senso di angoscia e prostrazione che si era riflesso sul suo stato di salute già precario, provocandogli un notevole danno per la sua immagine e per la sua reputazione, nuovamente esposto ad una nuova “gogna mediatica”. Sia il Tribunale di primo grado che la Corte d’Appello respingevano la domanda, assumendo che non vi era stata nessuna gratuita e strumentale rievocazione del delitto e nessuna volontaria spettacolarizzazione sì da provocare la pretesa offesa triviale o irridente del sentimento umano. La Corte d’Appello precisava che la pubblicazione dell’articolo era avvenuta allo scopo di offrire, all’interno di una rubrica ben definita e strutturata nel tempo, “una sponda di riflessione per i lettori su temi delicati quali emarginazione, la gelosia, la depressione, la prostituzione, con tutti i risvolti e le implicazioni che queste realtà possono determinare nella vita quotidiana”. Non vi è stata dunque, secondo la prospettazione del giudice di merito, alcuna volontà di determinare una rinnovata condanna mediatica e sociale e, piuttosto il progetto editoriale deve ritenersi esercizio esclusivo il diritto di cronaca, della libertà di stampa e di espressione così come garantiti dalla costituzione. Le Sezioni Unite della Cassazione dopo aver rammentato che ad esse non è affidata l’enunciazione di principi generali e astratti o di verità dogmatica del diritto, quanto piuttosto la soluzione di questioni di principio di valenza nomofilattica, per sempre riferibili alla specificità del singolo caso della vita, precisano che quando si parla di diritto all’oblio ci si riferisce, in realtà, ad almeno tre differenti situazioni: quella di chi desidera non vedere nuovamente pubblicate notizie relative a vicende, in passato legittimamente diffuse, quando è trascorso un certo tempo tra la prima e la seconda pubblicazione; quella, connessa all’uso di Internet ed alla reperibilità delle notizie in rete, consistente nell’esigenza di collocare la pubblicazione, avvenuta legittimamente molti anni prima, nel contesto attuale; e quella, infine, trattata dalla Corte di Giustizia dell’Unione Europea nella nota sentenza Google Spain, nella quale l’interessato fa valere il diritto alla cancellazione dei dati. Il caso portato all’esame nelle sezioni unite costituisce un caso classico, connesso col problema della libertà di stampa e la diffusione della notizia con il mezzo della stampa. La Suprema Corte precisa dunque che la premessa dalla quale bisogna muovere quando un giornalista pubblica di nuovo, a distanza di lungo periodo di tempo, una notizia già pubblicata, la quale, all’epoca, rivestiva un interesse pubblico, egli non sta esercitando un diritto di cronaca, quanto più precisamente, il diritto alla rievocazione storica di quei fatti (c.d. Storiografia). D’altro canto, lo stesso termine diritto di cronaca, trae la propria origine etimologica dalla parola greca kpòvos che significa appunto tempo; il che vuol dire che si tratta di un diritto avente ad oggetto il racconto, con la stampa o altri mezzi di diffusione, di un qualcosa che attiene a quel tempo ed è perciò collegato con determinato contesto. Ciò non significa naturalmente escludere che, laddove intervengano elementi nuovi, tali per cui, la notizia ritorni di attualità, non si debba diffondere quella notizia arricchita dei nuovi elementi sicché possa effettivamente invocarsi la manifestazione del diritto di cronaca. Laddove al contrario, non intervenga alcun nuovo elemento, significa tornare a diffondere una notizia del passato, anche se di sicuro importanza per allora, si è senz’altro in presenza di un’attività storiografica, che non può godere della stessa garanzia costituzionale prevista per il diritto di cronaca: si tratterà di storiografia ma non certo di cronaca. Non si tratta dunque di mettere in discussione la scelta di un quotidiano, di un settimanale o di una qualunque altra testata giornalistica, di procedere alla rievocazione storica di fatti ritenuti importanti in un determinato contesto sociale e territoriale (che costituisce certamente manifestazione della libertà di stampa e informazione tutelata dalla costituzione) ma, il giudice di merito dovrà verificare se sussista o meno un interesse qualificato a che la rubrica del quotidiano venga diffusa con riferimenti precisi alla persona che di quella vicenda fu protagonista in un passato più o meno remoto. L’identificazione personale, che rivestiva un sicuro interesse pubblico nel momento in cui il fatto avvenne, potrebbe divenire irrilevante, per i destinatari dell’informazione, una volta che il tempo è trascorso, quando i fatti, anche se gravi, si siano ormai sbiaditi nella memoria collettiva. Di tali principi ha fatto buon governo il Testo Unico dei doveri del giornalista, di recente approvazione, che all’articolo 1 nel ribadire che l’attività del giornalista “si ispira alla libertà di espressione sancita dalla costituzione italiana” e che è diritto insopprimibile del giornalista la libertà di informazione e di critica, aggiunge poi il successivo articolo 3, comma 1, che “il giornalista rispetta il diritto all’identità personale ed evita di fare riferimento a particolari relativi al passato, salvo quando essi risultino essenziali per la completezza dell’informazione.” Il successivo articolo 3 comma 2, aggiunge che il giornalista, “nel diffondere a distanza di tempo identificativi del condannato, valuta anche l’incidenza della pubblicazione sul percorso di reinserimento sociale dell’interessato e sulla famiglia”. In definitiva le Sezioni Unite hanno ribadito la rilevanza costituzionale sia del diritto di cronaca che del diritto all’oblio; quando, però, una notizia del passato, a suo tempo diffusa nel legittimo esercizio del diritto di cronaca, venga ad essere nuovamente diffusa a distanza di un lasso di tempo significativo, sulla base di una libera scelta editoriale, l’attività svolta da giornalista riveste carattere storiografico; di conseguenza il diritto dell’interessato al mantenimento dell’anonimato sulla sua identità personale è prevalente, almeno che non sussista un rinnovato interesse pubblico ai fatti, ovvero, il protagonista abbia ricoperto o ricopra una funzione che lo renda pubblicamente noto. @Produzione Riservata Studio Legale Gelsomina Cimino www.studiolegalecimino.eu#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/13594&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com

International blog: lifestyle e glamour a portata di click

Eventi, moda, lifestyle, gossip; ma anche arte, cultura, interviste a persone note. Tutto questo è International Blog: un diario on line che, dopo un anno e mezzo di vita è riuscito a crescere esponenzialmente il suo pubblico, nonché i suoi clienti che attraverso il sito, vogliono pubblicizzare le loro attività commerciali; inoltre tante sono le partnership che International Blog ha stretto a titolo di collaborazione commerciale, al fine di poter far beneficiare, nondimanco garantire, alla propria clientela, una vastissima platea. Nato da un’idea del blog emiliano Giulio Strocchi, International Blog gode oggi di migliaia di visualizzazioni giornaliere ed è un media partner sempre più ambito in vari eventi legati alla Fashion Week meneghina. Come nasce International Blog? International Blog nasce il 17 dicembre del 2017 con l'idea di mettere insieme le mie conoscenze nel mondo degli eventi con quelle dell'informatica. Per conoscenze nel mondo dell'informatica non intendo mie personali ma anche quella del mio socio Alessandro Frigerio (autore del sito) che con la sua azienda di sicurezza informatica (System Off Site) protegge i siti che fa in maniera impeccabile. Per un sito come il mio, che fa anche interviste a personaggi pubblici, è di vitale importanza la sicurezza da attacchi informatici. International Blog tratta temi di moda, eventi, spettacolo ma anche tematiche sociale fra cui la disabilità, il bullismo e il cyberbullismo: la Polisportiva Olimpia Onlus di Carlo Mascia, con cui abbiamo una collaborazione ne è l'esempio più lampante ma anche in alcune interviste fra cui quella di Francesca Cipriani si è parlato di bullismo. Una cosa che tengo a precisare è che se il blog ha avuto così tanto successo è stato soprattutto merito delle collaborazioni che ho stretto fino ad ora e che voglio ringraziare, prima in assoluto è quella con Rocco Marone proprietario del giornale Miraflores Free Press, Lorenzo Tiezzi (ufficio stampa Ltc comunicazione), Gian Giacomo William Faillace, titolare dell’agenzia di comunicazione WiCom, Giuseppe Oliver Buzzetti in arte Oliver Buzz (fotografo ufficiale del blog), Loris Gonfiotti (fotografo di modelle), Mirko Salerno (Only One Agency), Lorella Maselli (ufficio stampa vip Why Not Group), Lorenzo Speed (Amore Radio Show), Daniele Ugoni (fotografo Vip), Daniele Spadaro (ufficio stampa eventi Spadaronews), Carlo Mascia (Presidente Polisportiva Olimpia Onlus) e Mattiacarlotta Parrino, una scrittrice di International Blog, cara amica e compagna del mio socio Alessandro. Inoltre volevo ringraziare anche le mie tre testimonial del Blog la dj Jessie Diamond, Azora Rais e Barbara Morris Piazza Mediamente, quante visualizzazioni ricevi giornalmente? Beh devo dire che delle visualizzazioni non mi posso lamentare anzi...devo#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/13595&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com dire che negli ultimi periodi sono passato da una media delle 2.000 alle 3.000 giornaliere con picchi fino a 12.000. Tutto questo l'ho sempre provato sui miei canali social mettendo il contatore delle visualizzazioni come post. Esistono già progetti per espandere la visibilità del tuo blog? Si, esistono dei progetti e sono di alto livello. Quali? Il primo progetto è quello di implementare una parte commerciale nel blog, che è stata già avviata ad inizio gennaio, cioè di fare affiliazioni con brand di moda della prossima Milan Fashion Week e la vendita di t-shirt e gadget con il marchio di International Blog. Altri progetti sono quelle di avere più collaborazioni possibili con altri magazine sia online che cartacei di un certo spessore per far in modo che la visibilità del blog sia sempre più alta, magari anche concorsi di bellezza di un certo spessore. Inoltre, al fine di far crescere ancora di più il blog sono sempre aperto a nuove collaborazioni perchè è stato tutto quanto summenzionato che ha portato al successo, in questo anno e mezzo, International Blog. Anticipazioni sulla prossima Milano Fashion Week? Le anticipazioni che posso darvi sulla prossima Milano Fashion Week è che sarò media partner al prossimo evento Intarnational Fashion Expo che sarà un evento veramente importante in questa edizione organizzata da WiCom. www.internationalblog.eu#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/13595&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com Gian Giacomo William Faillace

Znate kako se u Dalmaciji kaže za magarca, taman sam ga naučio da ne jede, a on je krepao... Hrvatski sport ide prema tome. I to sustavno. Evo, neki dan je ministar financija Zdravko Marić rekao da se sportu mogu povećati sredstva za 14 posto, ali nama treba sredstva povećati šest puta više, a ne 14 posto!

Umm yeah, this one gets full score imo. Quite a few people are complaining about mainstream reincarnation in a game or sth "oh no, I reincarnated as a game character, now I must follow the original characters actions or crises would descent upon me" but this one <span style="text-decoration: underline;">doesnt</span>, you know? Well, at first it seems to go that way but later on he doesn't give a flying fck about it. Don't rate something after just a few read chapters, please... Aside from that, I still do have some problems with the prota, like he's dense (but fortunately not as dense as e.g. Kurono from kuro no maou, Naofumi from Tate no yuusha or worst case Kaneki) , he tries to avoid the heroins at the beginning 'cause they're the MCs heroins and not his (he's the MCs friend character if you didn't know) and he overreacts sometimes.. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">BUT! </span>he's real hardworking, grinds like hell (I love it, not the written protocol of the grinding but the fact he does it), gives not a damn about other people's opinions and a bit later in the story he gave up on following his original characters setting and actions since he noticed relative early that he already messed it up and he doesn't get the cause, so... sht happens huh. [spoiler] He's the most hated guy in school because he's all nice and "flirting" with the school goddesses (heroins) while he strolls through the schools halls with his messy getup and girls and teachers sticking to him like gum under your shoe. Hilarious, I tell you. [/spoiler] The heroins we've seen so far all have their unique cliche setting, which is not bad at all since it's intended to be cliche and that's what this works author cracks the jokes with, the prota is ..not#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/14525&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com your typical beta isekai prota but not anything completely new either. He's definitely likable so it's fine. Story is not unique either but my favorite in this comedy game world reincarnation theme. The description here sums it up pretty good and everything else would spoiler too much I guess. Translations quality is not perfect but still perfectly easy to read. The translator is awesome, he sometimes puts pictures inside the the text to explain some Japanese slangs or things you wouldn't get otherwise and it helps! thank you translator! Also he puts some memes or gifs inside if it works with the story. His 'editing' was sometimes better than the jokes of the story. This novel together with this translator are very recommendable, as long as you're fine with cliche, harem, sarcasm, op mc, isekai and special editing of the translator (or also: people with humor). Not gonna check for mistakes because wrote more than I intended to but I'll re-rate if author messes up.
          

New PICARD trailer is Here. You will LOVE it. IF…

 Cache   
IF.. You are a fan of Jen Luc Picard You are a fan of Sir Patrick Stewart You actually, in fact, ARE Sir Patrick Stewart You are Jean Luc Picard, reading this, from the FUTURE! Then PICARD is clearly for you!    The latest trailer looks impressive. Great effects. Great visuals. Cinema scale gloss on an accessibly televisual platform. Plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the original shows : Star Trek, Next Generation, Voyager, DS9 et al.   There are arguably some aesthetic touches that evoke Enterprise and Discovery? PLENTY of #EXCITING ACTION! A real sense of conflict, drama, mystery and a self contained story that nonetheless ties to wider series’ mythology. I get it. Trek cannot any longer be a bouncily optimistic thought for day philosophical discussion group dramatised as sci-fi adventure. The brand can and indeed must evolve to integrate the sophisticated warmth through the cold and clinical reality of our visual age. No probs. And it also fits a most encouraging current template of keeping actors and stars VITAL, throughout life. No more relegation to a cameo on a sofa or a deathbed reconciliation. We have a near 80 year old man here front and centre of the action. I love that. Jane Fonda started all this, of course: 80 + and still FIT in all the right senses, defining Netflix and starring in movies in between. Patrick Stewart is just playing catch up for the boys here, looking better than he has done in ages.     Bodes well for when, or now rather IF, we ever see Harrison Ford turn up and play Indiana Jones again.. And why stop there? Let’s ponder the potential! LIMITLESS one off, two off, full series, else-world spin offs, await!  Daniel Craig can stay on as Bond by playing ‘M’ (new poster out now, btw). Pacino in Godfather 4, making a final intervention to save Andy Garcia’s doomed Don? Clooney returns as an older Dr Doug Ross? Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck..step#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15167&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comping in sometime as occasionally returning Jack Ryans? Rambo 6: redeeming Rambo 5! Die Hard: With a Pension? And so on. Forward looking, constructive nostalgia. Not so much trying to relive the past as harness its imagery to help us all live more presently and steward (stewart?!) our successors into the future. All via the shared fun of a jolly good yarn with admirable characters who excel in their craft at any age, played by actors who do exactly the same thing. Always facing forward! The possibilities now are truly endless. And not because of tech or platform changes / format opening though yes that helps. No. It’s because we are possibly, just maybe, living longer and now learning to value and nurture our ongoing potential as a species. THAT is very Star Trek: elder humanity are to be looked to in fighting tomorrow’s battles, not relegated to a walk-in-cameo for  younger pretenders. Having said all that. What if you DON’T see that wider philosophical picture? What if you just like Trek to BE that philosophy, explicitly and immediately? And what if, for all its cameos from Data or Riker et al..you#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15167&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com genuinely want and miss a team, community dynamic rather than a singular focus on ONE leading man? Bill Shatner never got anything like this for Captain JAMES T KIRK! (don’t get me started on Generations: I leave that to THIS guy!). ..Then this new show might NOT be for you. Coz it is VERY ‘into’ Jean Luc Picard and, by extension, Patrick Stewart. So if you are NOT a fan of love letters to one character/ actor, in a format arguable NOT suited to that sort of thing? I’d probably brace myself for a disappointment..or#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15167&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com best avoid altogether. Loving ‘TREK’ does not mean you will adore PICARD. Equally though, non fans of Trek might just have found their first, accessible step into a new universe!   You might just try it and be surprised. Dunno. BOLDY GO.      PICARD streams next year.  ENGAGE /MAKE IT SO..
          

Greta! The Power of Image! And the SUPER-Power..of Autism on Film..

 Cache   
Greta Thunberg is Changing the World. But not the One you Were Expecting..     Greta: a good kid, who works hard and is driven by a refreshingly un-precocious, innocent yet determined worldview. Yes, there has been some stage management, verging on the hysterical. Yes, a LOT of Friday strikers are lacking any purpose or objective outcome in their abandonment of the classroom. And yes, that viral video/ meme about ‘HOW DARE YOU‘ is funny. What is NOT funny? Personal attacks on Greta, especially by a creepy breed of older man that seem somewhat fixated on her appearance. Dudes: she is SIXTEEN. Go get help. And I also suspect some jealousy at work: WHY IS THIS GIRL GETTING NOBEL PRIZE chatter? Well, it’s NOT because of her enviro-vision, which may well just burn out. It is because the girl has reinvented the perception of Asperger syndrome and autism. What was an affliction in some quarters is now universally a ‘super-power’. Great! Hollywood has much to answer for here. They tended to define a fictional character as autistic and then jump to the ‘therefore a genius’ syllogism. Rain Man was the start of that trend (everyone raves about Hoffman in that film: TOM CRUISE is just as good, if not better, and deserved an Oscar nod, too?). Mercury Rising followed: ‘how does a nine year old boy crack a top secret government code? He’s AUTISTIC!’. IE: You had to be both super-powered in mathematical skill AND somehow completely off the charts in your social behaviours relative to age. One could not simply be very clever/charming/competent AND be ‘on the spectrum’. It has taken almost 30 years to undo that muddled perception; which placed both unrealistic expectation and unhelpful, stereotyped generalist behaviour templates onto the incredibly wide scale of ‘autism’. Greta is leading that charge. Thank God for her. And shame on you, anybody, sitting online and calling her nasty names. I was very surprised to see Jeremy Clarkson joining her critics rather than supporters. Actually, scrap that: I am more surprised that he has a column at all. Even in The Sun. Amazing driver: yep. Tireless supporter of the Armed services: yes, he is. But columnist on anything beyond cars and his lazily inserted picture of whichever hottie he fancies that week..to#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15168&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com said column..nah#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15168&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com..I’d rather re-watch the HOW DARE YOU speech, because it is more entertaining. So, we do still have some way to go in this area. People need to understand that a ‘spectrum’ by its nature is both sword and shield. Someone suffering acute dyspraxia is, by extension, impaired in motor skill fulfilment, which, in turn, depletes social speed of progress. But that need not prevent the person steadily, surely and yes, painfully, yet successfully, managing a transition to independence and happiness from the chrysalis of disability. Do not assume you have either autism or an ‘aspie’, simply because someone says you are ‘on the spectrum’. It’s sword as well as shield and if you are allowed to be defined by that, the burden can outweigh the benefits. Equally, if a diagnosis is genuinely helpful and unavoidable, the help IS out there; but clarifying, securing, developing it and holding onto every moment of whatever kind of progress and joy can be found? It’s still tough. Did Hollywood aid the prejudice? Sure. It always does, because a simple and visual medium has to simplify even complex conditions. Ergo: clever = autistic = does not function by rules = stereotype = unhelpful. Same way no biopic or prequel or reboot etc ever truly captures time or ageing accurately because that process simply cannot, relatively, be honoured on film. And so it is with ‘the spectrum’. Only the most extreme / fascinating / tangible cases can be contained in a screen story and so, in turn, that becomes a kind of well meaning and initially helpful awareness tool yet ultimately erroneous and counter-productive education for the casual viewer. Yet Greta’s joy in her mission, and then, in the world becoming aware, not so much of her vision of an environmental Armageddon, as her informed and determined passion, is in itself a MASSIVE step forward. Educating and preparing observers in the awareness of..well#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15168&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, the awareness of how wide  ‘the spectrum’ can be. And to be absolutely fair to movie magic, I believe there are indeed a few top flight characters that are indeed on the autistic spectrum. Matter of opinion /debate. But now that we view the condition as key to ‘super-power’ without it’s being solely viewed AS a power..then#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15168&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com I think it’s perfectly cool to review some old favourites and diagnose them, afresh! Here we go.. BATMAN: Lives in a strict routine that still finds its definition in one event from his childhood. He is in effect trapped in that world, still and is lashing out at criminals because he cannot communicate his loss, rage and pain. Genius Detective. Top rate athlete. Loner. Defo high functioning Aspie. INDIANA JONES: Talks in lectures, even when not lecturing. Has no concept of time, responsibility or property unless it serves his particular mission to acquire and defend rare artefacts. Occasionally emotional, inappropriate behaviour because he has no boundaries. Will even kill baddies without any thought of his own basic safety. Refer for review. MELVIN UDALL: They SAY he has OCD. Nah, this guy is full on autistic. Jack even wanted Dustin’s part in Rain Man. He over-compensated here..and#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/15168&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com won an Oscar! A MUST SEE: As Good As It Gets, for all its feelgood fun, is also a touching and bittersweet visit to the mind of a man who is so trapped in his own world that it requires the shock of true love and brushes with real crime and mortality to inspire his getting help. JAMES BOND: Cannot sustain a relationship, except with an outdated notion of patriotic pride. Dalton’s 007 keeps laughing, nervously, to himself. Craig’s take has a trance like ability to shut himself off to pain, as though he has forgotten it’s ok to do so […]
          

Top-grossing Casino-based Movies

 Cache   
Top-grossing Casino-based Movies  KEVIN SPACEY!  LAS VEGAS!  Casinos and casino games have always been a favourite part of big-budget movies. People of the current generation who have access to online gaming and websites like fortunemobilecasino might not understand the fascination of protagonists getting the better of casinos (or maybe they do as they experience it on a daily basis). But, previously, since ordinary people didn’t have the opportunity to experience the excitement of casinos except through movies adding a casino scene or two was a sure-shot way to box-office success. Incidentally, there were also top-grossing movies that were purely based in and around casinos and gaming. So here we are: discussing the top-grossing casino-based films of all times. Casino Royale No discussion on casino-based movies can start without the mention of a Bond movie. All through the ages, we have seen a number of 007s beats the God of chance. But the 2006 Daniel Craig starrer was totally dedicated to the casino setting. The movie, an adaptation of Ian Fleming’s first Bond novel is set at the beginning of the agent 007’s career when he first gets his license to kill. The movie revolves around an assignment which involves a terrorist financier, Bond’s journey to try and bankrupt him, the antagonist and the protagonist involved in a high stakes poker, James Bond winning with a straight flush and the subsequent twist and turns of a betrayal and who gets the money in the end. A considerable part of the movie happens in the ‘Casino Royale’ (the reason for naming the film as such) and glamorises the idea of casinos and the entertainment that gambling can provide. When released in 2006, with a new face as James Bond, the film became a top-grosser earning around $600 million and becoming the highest-grossing James Bond film at that time. 21 No casino-based movie list is complete without the mention of the epic movie 21! Based on the true story of an MIT mathematical-genius, this movie glorified the concept of card-counting and was the inspiration for many other films based on the same idea. Basically, this story describes the journey of an MIT student, who under the wing of his genius mathematics professor learns the art of card counting and uses the talent to win money to pay off his education debt. What follows is the ill-effects of the high-flying lifestyle that comes with money, taking unnecessary risks to maintain the lifestyle, getting caught and the lies and deceit to get the upper hand once more. The exciting story-line involving casinos and gaming and a common man getting better of the system managed to attract and entertain audiences, making it the highest-gross film of its time. AND IT STARS KEVIN SPACEY!  Molly’s Game The more recent 2017 movie Molly’s Game once again proved audiences’ love for casino-based movies. Based on the real-life memoirs of Molly Bloom, the film revolves around the story of an ex-athlete who managed to become successful and earn millions through clandestine Poker tournaments and her subsequent fight in a federal court. Also, a box-office success, the film, its story-line and the performances all managed to enthral audiences. PLEASE GAMBLE RESPONSIBLY THIS ARTICLE DOES NOT ENDORSE KEVIN SPACEY. BUT THEN, KEVIN SPACEY DOES NOT ENDORSE US..SO WHY SHOULD WE DO HIM ANY FAVOURS?

Comment on Why Do Betas Push Theory That Insults Them? by BroadBlogs

 Cache   
Chiming in here, what I wrote to Bob also applies here: women rarely “line up” to have sex with men other than “rock gods,” or something similar, where status and personal identity are involved. And that’s because the motivation isn’t strictly sex. And because women are routinely still shamed for “promiscuity” but in some realms, like that that of the rock gods, the rules shift. Also, jealousy. for most people it’s just too hard to share your partner.

LE NUOVE REALTA' DELLA VENDITA: SCOPRI IL SEGRETO PER VENDERE CON ENORME SUCCESSO IN OGNI CAMPO

In questo prezioso manuale le dinamiche della vendita sono espresse in modo preciso, collaudato, verificato e concepito per aiutarti a concludere una vendita in modo veloce e semplice e in qualsiasi mercato.
Oggi viviamo in un'epoca in cui il processo d'acquisto è controllato dai clienti non da una situazione di vendita contro cui bisogna cercare di imporsi.
La buona notizia è che chi si dimostra in grado di comprendere le nuove realtà potrà ottenere risultati straordinari.
Grazie a questo libro comincerai a migliorare i risultati delle vendite dal primo giorno in cui applicherai queste idee collaudate. Inizialmente bisogna seguire alcuni ESERCIZI PRATICI e porsi determinati quesiti:

"Quali sono i fattori principali del nostro mondo frenetico che oggi condizionano le tue vendite? Cosa dovrai cominciare a fare, o fare di più, per riuscire nei mercati di domani?
Quali sono alcuni dei maggiori cambiamenti nei clienti e nelle offerte di prodotti/servizi che condizionano le tue vendite?
Quali sono le 3 qualità o caratteristiche del cliente ideale per il prodotto o servizio che vendi? Quali sono le cose più importanti che devi imparare sui tuoi clienti prima di incontrarli?"

Focalizzare le risposte e metterle in pratica risulterà determinante per ottenere ciò che veramente desideri a livello professionale e personale.
Nella società attuale ma soprattutto nella mentalità tradizionale spesso si qualifica un venditore come qualcuno che sta cercando di "fregarti": la parola venditore viene spesso associata a avere fregature, ecco perché bisogna divulgare informazioni e soprattutto capire i fattori più importanti che determinano il successo o il fallimento nelle vendite nel mercato di oggi.
Il mercato è cambiato drasticamente e continua a cambiare: devi cambiare anche tu. Darwin scrisse: "Non è il più forte che sopravvive né il più intelligente ma colui che è più aperto al cambiamento."

Ci sono 7 nuove realtà che devi incorporare nel tuo modo di pensare e nelle tue azioni per ottenere risultati di vendita e profitto:
"1) Ci sono più venditori che acquirenti in ogni campo 2) Vendere è più complesso 3) Vendere richiede concentrazione e chiarezza
4) Vendere richiede maggiore preparazione 5) I clienti sono più esigenti
6) Il successo nelle vendite richiede più incontri 7) Concludere la vendita è più difficile"

Al giorno d'oggi i clienti sono più scettici e sospettosi per le loro esperienze d'acquisto: inoltre ci sono più opportunità e più concorrenza con molte offerte e più servizi e soprattutto più canali su internet con più prodotti disponibili con prezzi vantaggiosi e più bassi.
In questo contesto quindi bisogna seguire la regola dei marines: "ADATTATI, ADEGUATI, REAGISCI!" Avere successo nelle vendite significa soprattutto usare un approccio emotivo comprensivo, ci deve essere un rapporto di fiducia e la presentazione del venditore deve essere esaustiva e soprattutto formulata in modo costruttivo ed economico.

Bisogna comunicare con sintonia e saper contrattare con "tatto", un po' di simpatia (senza esagerare) non guasta per introdurre l'acquirente in un clima familiare e di sinergia preziosa.
Devi dare sicurezza al cliente attraverso la fiducia in te stesso.
Il venditore per avere successo deve avere una caratteristica fondamentale: la sintonia tra carattere e professione. Lavora con passione e trasmettilo al cliente creando così un rapporto di fiducia, stima e comprensione.

Despite fall, former President Carter helps build home

 Cache   

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With a bandage above his left eye and a large, red welt below it, former President Jimmy Carter was greeted by a cheering crowd Monday morning as he prepared to help build a home with Habitat for Humanity in Nashville.

Carter fell at home on Sunday, requiring 14 stiches, but he did not let his injuries keep him from participating in his 36th building project with the nonprofit Christian housing organization. He turned 95 last Tuesday, becoming the first U.S. president to reach that milestone.

Before construction began, Carter led a morning devotion for a group of several hundred volunteers.

He walked slowly across the uneven, muddy ground to the stage helped by a cane and several people who were nearby to steady him. Once seated, Carter, who still teaches Sunday school twice a week at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, spoke in a clear voice, peppering his inspirational message with jokes.

He spoke about Jesus’ brother James who taught that “if your life is not filled with peace, joy and thanksgiving, it’s your fault.“’

Carter said God gives us life and freedom. “With our freedom, every one of us can make a basic decision. … `What kind of person do I, myself, choose to be?“’

Carter said every person “can be a complete success in the eyes of God.”

Speaking about what makes a successful life, Carter reminded the crowd that Jesus was poor, and died young, abandoned by his closest friends.

“But Jesus lived a perfect life because he followed the will of God,” Carter said.

Joining Carter at the building site on Monday were former First Lady Rosalynn Carter; husband and wife country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood; and Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and First Lady Maria Lee.

Musician Eric Paslay played a song before Carter took the stage and joked about Carter’s injury as he introduced him.

“After that bar fight, you coming out, building houses … I love you to death,” Paslay said.


          

Profit, not politics: Trump allies sought Ukraine gas deal

 Cache   

KYIV, Ukraine – As Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one of Donald Trump’s main political rivals, a group of individuals with ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the former Soviet republic.

Their aims were profit, not politics. This circle of businessmen and Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying to install new management at the top of Ukraine’s massive state gas company. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies, according to two people with knowledge of their plans.

Their plan hit a snag after Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko lost his reelection bid to Volodymyr Zelenskiy, whose conversation with Trump about former Vice President Joe Biden is now at the center of the House impeachment inquiry of Trump.

But the effort to install a friendlier management team at the helm of the gas company, Naftogaz, would soon be taken up with Ukraine’s new president by U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, whose slate of candidates included a fellow Texan who is one of Perry’s past political donors.

It’s unclear if Perry’s attempts to replace board members at Naftogaz were coordinated with the Giuliani allies pushing for a similar outcome, and no one has alleged that there is criminal activity in any of these efforts. And it’s unclear what role, if any, Giuliani had in helping his clients push to get gas sales agreements with the state-owned company.

But the affair shows how those with ties to Trump and his administration were pursuing business deals in Ukraine that went far beyond advancing the president’s personal political interests. It also raises questions about whether Trump allies were mixing business and politics just as Republicans were calling for a probe of Biden and his son Hunter, who served five years on the board of another Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.

On Friday, according to the news site Axios, Trump told a group of Republican lawmakers that it had been Perry who had prompted the phone call in which Trump asked Zelenskiy for a “favor” regarding Biden. Axios cited a source saying Trump said Perry had asked Trump to make the call to discuss “something about an LNG (liquefied natural gas) plant.”

While it’s unclear whether Trump’s remark Friday referred specifically to the behind-the-scenes maneuvers this spring involving the multibillion-dollar state gas company, The Associated Press has interviewed four people with direct knowledge of the attempts to influence Naftogaz, and their accounts show Perry playing a key role in the effort. Three of the four spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation. The fourth is an American businessman with close ties to the Ukrainian energy sector.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Energy Department said Perry, a former Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate, was not advancing anyone’s personal interests. She said his conversations with Ukrainian officials about Naftogaz were part of his efforts to reform the country’s energy sector and create an environment in which Western companies can do business.

Perry was asked about the AP’s reporting on Monday while in Lithuania, where he was meeting with officials from Ukraine and other eastern European countries to discuss energy security and cooperation. He said any suggestion that he tried to force a management change at Naftogaz was a “totally dreamed up story.”

“We get asked for our recommendations about people who are experts in areas, various areas,” Perry said. “Folks who have expertise in particular areas. Obviously having been the governor of the state of Texas, I know a lot of people in the energy industry.”

The Trump and Giuliani allies driving the attempt to change the senior management at Naftogaz, however, appear to have had inside knowledge of the U.S. government’s plans in Ukraine. For example, they told people that Trump would replace the U.S. ambassador there months before she was actually recalled to Washington, according to three of the individuals interviewed by the AP. One of the individuals said he was so concerned by the whole affair that he reported it to a U.S. Embassy official in Ukraine months ago.

THE BUSINESSMEN

Ukraine, a resource-rich nation that sits on the geographic and symbolic border between Russia and the West, has long been plagued by corruption and government dysfunction, making it a magnet for foreign profiteers.

At the center of the Naftogaz plan, according to three individuals familiar with the details, were three such businessmen: two Soviet-born Florida real estate entrepreneurs, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, and an oil magnate from Boca Raton, Florida, named Harry Sargeant III.

Parnas and Fruman have made hundreds of thousands of dollars in political donations to Republicans, including $325,000 to a Trump-allied political action committee in 2018. This helped the relatively unknown entrepreneurs gain access to top levels of the Republican Party – including meetings with Trump at the White House and Mar-a-Lago.

The two have also faced lawsuits from disgruntled investors over unpaid debts. During the same period they were pursuing the Naftogaz deal, the two were coordinating with Giuliani to set up meetings with Ukrainian government officials and push for an investigation of the Bidens.

Sargeant, his wife and corporate entities tied to the family have donated at least $1.2 million to Republican campaigns and PACs over the last 20 years, including $100,000 in June to the Trump Victory Fund, according to federal and state campaign finance records. He has also served as finance chair of the Florida state GOP, and gave nearly $14,000 to Giuliani’s failed 2008 presidential campaign.

In early March, Fruman, Parnas and Sargeant were touting a plan to replace Naftogaz CEO Andriy Kobolyev with another senior executive at the company, Andrew Favorov, according to two individuals who spoke to the AP as well as a memorandum about the meeting that was later submitted to the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, formerly known as Kiev.

Going back to the Obama administration, the U.S. Energy Department and the State Department have long supported efforts to import American natural gas into Ukraine to reduce the country’s dependence on Russia.

The three approached Favorov with the idea while the Ukrainian executive was attending an energy industry conference in Texas. Parnas and Fruman told him they had flown in from Florida on a private jet to recruit him to be their partner in a new venture to export up to 100 tanker shipments a year of U.S. liquefied gas into Ukraine, where Naftogaz is the largest distributor, according to two people briefed on the details.

Sargeant told Favorov that he regularly meets with Trump at Mar-a-Lago and that the gas-sales plan had the president’s full support, according to the two people who said Favorov recounted the discussion to them.

These conversations were recounted to AP by Dale W. Perry, an American who is a former business partner of Favorov. He told AP in an interview that Favorov described the meeting to him soon after it happened and that Favorov perceived it to be a shakedown. Perry, who is no relation to the energy secretary, is the managing partner of Energy Resources of Ukraine, which currently has business agreements to import natural gas and electricity to Ukraine.

A second person who spoke on condition of anonymity also confirmed to the AP that Favorov had recounted details of the Houston meeting to him.

According to Dale Perry and the other person, Favorov said Parnas told him Trump planned to remove U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and replace her with someone more open to aiding their business interests.

Dale Perry told the AP he was so concerned about the efforts to change the management at Naftogaz and to get rid of Yovanovitch that he reported what he had heard to Suriya Jayanti, a State Department foreign service officer stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv who focuses on the energy industry.

He also wrote a detailed memo about Favorov’s account, dated April 12, which was shared with another current State Department official. Perry recently provided a copy of the April memo to AP.

Jayanti declined to provide comment. Favorov also declined to comment.

On March 24, Giuliani and Parnas gathered at the Trump International Hotel in Washington with Healy E. Baumgardner, a former Trump campaign adviser who once served as deputy communications director for Giuliani’s presidential campaign and as a communications official during the George W. Bush administration.

She is now listed as the CEO of 45 Energy Group, a Houston-based energy company whose website describes it as a “government relations, public affairs and business development practice group.” The company’s name is an apparent nod to Trump, the 45th president.

This was a couple of weeks after the Houston meeting with Favorov, the Naftogaz executive. Giuliani, Parnas and Baumgardner were there to make a business pitch involving gas deals in the former Soviet bloc to a potential investor.

This time, according to Giuliani, the deals that were discussed involved Uzbekistan, not Ukraine.

“I have not pursued a deal in the Ukraine. I don’t know about a deal in the Ukraine. I would not do a deal in the Ukraine now, obviously,” said Giuliani, reached while attending a playoff baseball game between the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins. “There is absolutely no proof that I did it, because I didn’t do it.”

During this meeting, Parnas again repeated that Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador in Kyiv, would soon be replaced, according to a person with direct knowledge of the gathering. She was removed two months later.

Giuliani, who serves as Trump’s personal lawyer and has no official role in government, acknowledged Friday that he was among those pushing the president to replace the ambassador, a career diplomat with a history of fighting corruption.

“The ambassador to Ukraine was replaced,” he said. “I did play a role in that.”

But Giuliani refused to discuss the details of his business dealings, or whether he helped his associates in their push to forge gas sales contracts with the Ukrainian company. He did describe Sergeant as a friend and referred to Parnas and Fruman as his clients in a tweet in May.

As part of their impeachment inquiry, House Democrats have subpoenaed Giuliani for documents and communications related to dozens of people, including Favorov, Parnas, Fruman and Baumgardner’s 45 Energy Group.

Baumgardner issued a written statement, saying: “While I won’t comment on business discussions, I will say this: this political assault on private business by the Democrats in Congress is complete harassment and an invasion of privacy that should scare the hell out of every American business owner.”

Baumgardner later denied that she had any business dealings in Ukraine but refused to say whether the replacement of Ambassador Yovanovitch was discussed.

Sargeant did not respond to a voice message left at a number listed for him at an address in Boca Raton.

John Dowd, a former Trump attorney who now represents Parnas and Fruman, said it was actually the Naftogaz executives who approached his clients about making a deal. Dowd says the group then approached Rick Perry to get the Energy Department on board.

“The people from the company solicited my clients because Igor is in the gas business, and they asked them, and they flew to Washington and they solicited,” Dowd said. “They sat down and talked about it. And then it was presented to Secretary Perry to see if they could get it together.

“It wasn’t a shakedown; it was an attempt to do legitimate business that didn’t work out.”

THE ENERGY SECRETARY

In May, Rick Perry traveled to Kyiv to serve as the senior U.S. government representative at the inauguration of the county’s new president.

In a private meeting with Zelenskiy, Perry pressed the Ukrainian president to fire members of the Naftogaz advisory board. Attendees left the meeting with the impression that Perry wanted to replace the American representative, Amos Hochstein, a former diplomat and energy representative who served in the Obama administration, with someone “reputable in Republican circles,” according to someone who was in the room.

Perry’s push for Ukraine’s state-owned natural gas company Naftogaz to change its supervisory board was first reported by Politico.

A second meeting during the trip, at a Kyiv hotel, included Ukrainian officials and energy sector people. There, Perry made clear that the Trump administration wanted to see the entire Naftogaz supervisory board replaced, according to a person who attended both meetings. Perry again referenced the list of advisers that he had given Zelenskiy, and it was widely interpreted that he wanted Michael Bleyzer, a Ukrainian-American businessman from Texas, to join the newly formed board, the person said. Also on the list was Robert Bensh, another Texan who frequently works in Ukraine, the Energy Department confirmed.

Gordon D. Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, and Kurt D. Volker, then the State Department’s special envoy to Ukraine, were also in the room, according to photographs reviewed by AP. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to fear of retaliation, said he was floored by the American requests because the person had always viewed the U.S. government “as having a higher ethical standard.”

The Naftogaz supervisory board is supposed to be selected by the Ukrainian president’s Cabinet in consultation with international institutions, including the International Monetary Fund, the United States and the European Union. It must be approved by the Ukrainian Cabinet. Ukrainian officials perceived Perry’s push to swap out the board as circumventing that established process, according to the person in the room.

U.S. Energy Department spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes said Perry had consistently called for the modernization of Ukraine’s business and energy sector in an effort to create an environment that will incentivize Western companies to do business there. She said Perry delivered that same message in the May meeting with Zelenskiy.

“What he did not do is advocate for the business interests of any one individual or company,” Hynes said Saturday. “That is fiction being pushed by those who are disingenuously seeking to advance a nefarious narrative that does not exist.”

Hynes said the Ukrainian government had requested U.S. recommendations to advise the country on energy matters, and Perry provided those recommendations. She confirmed Bleyzer was on the list.

Bleyzer, whose company is based in Houston, did not respond on Saturday to a voicemail seeking comment. Bensh also did not respond to a phone message.

Perry has close ties to the Texas oil and gas industry. He appointed Bleyzer to a two-year term on a state technologies fund board in 2009. The following year, records show Bleyzer donated $20,000 to Perry’s reelection campaign.

Zelenskiy’s office declined to comment on Saturday.

In an interview Friday with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Perry said that “as God as my witness” he never discussed Biden or his son in meetings with Ukrainian or U.S. officials, including Trump or Giuliani. He did confirm he had had a conversation with Giuliani by phone, but a spokeswoman for the energy secretary declined to say when that call was or whether the two had discussed Naftogaz.

In Lithuania on Monday, Perry said he could not recall whether Bleyzer’s name was on the list provided to Zelenskiy. But Perry confirmed he had known Bleyzer for years and called him “a really brilliant, capable businessman.”

“I would recommend him for a host of different things in Kyiv because he knows the country,” Perry said of Bleyzer. “He’s from there. So, why not? I mean I would be stunned if someone said that would you eliminate Michael Bleyzer from a recommendation of people you ought to talk to about how to do business in the country, whether they’re knowledgeable. It’d be remarkable if I didn’t say, `Talk to Michael.“’

They also avoid added gums, emulsifiers, phosphates, and processed sugar. [...]

Unsung and Un-named - Dr. Dick Foth

Bit players- people who played an unsung part in God's redemption story. It only takes one small act to move the Gospel ball down the field. The unsung are often unnamed that play a pivotal role that drastically changes an outcome. This week, we talk about those unsung and unnamed heroes within Scripture through the life of a little boy (John 6:1-15) and a widowed woman (Mark 12:41-44).

Mashina Vremeni (Машина Времени) 50 gadu jubilejas tūre! 24.10.2019 - 20:00 -

 Cache   

Mashina Vremeni  (Машина Времени) 50 gadu jubilejas tūre! 

Mums liekas, ka viņi ir bijuši vienmēr. Mēs vienkārši atceramies viņus tikpat cik atceramies sevi. Un patiešām tas ir brīnums. Vai Jūs zināt daudz mūzikas grupu, kas pastāv 50 gadu?  Pie kam šis piecdesmitnieks ir godīgs  - šis nav tas gadījums, kad mūziķi paspīdēja dažus gadus septiņdesmitajos un pēc tam daudzus gadus viens otru negrib pat pazīt, bet uz jubileju tomēr savācas…. Nē, grupai Mašina Vremeņi (Машина Времени) visi šie piecdesmit gadi pagājuši nepārtraukti koncertējot un ierakstu studijās... bez pārtraukumiem.

Šis ir arī mākslinieciskais piecdesmitnieks – šis nav tas gadījums, kad, ieraugot grupas nosaukumu uz afišas, cilvēki vaicā “ui, vai tad viņi vēl ir dzīvi? Vai tad viņi vēl uzstājas?” Uzkāpjot uz lielās skatuves, Mašina Vremeņi (Машина Времени) no tās nav kāpusi nost visu piecdesmit gadu garumā. Viņu koncertprogrammā dziesmas no 1976.gada#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/20508&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com ļoti labi “sadzīvo” ar dziesmām no 2016.gada#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/20508&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com un publika vienmēr silti uzņem gan vienas, gan otras.

Mašina Vremeņi (Машина Времени) tiešām ir grupa, nevis kāds grupas līderis ar “statistiem”. Viss trijnieks – Andrejs Makarevičs (Андрей Макаревич), Aleksandrs Kutikovs (Александр Кутиков) un Valerijs Jefremovs (Валерий Ефремов) ir kopā jau vairāk kā četrdesmit gadu. Kopā ar viņiem šodien uz skatuves kāpj  Igors Homičs ģitāra (Игорь Хомич), Aleksandrs Levočkins taustiņi un bekvokāls (Александр Левочкин), Sergejs Ostroumovs (Сергей Остроумов) perkusijas un Aleksandrs Ditkovskis (Александр Дитковский) pūšamie, tamburīns, bekvokāls.

Ar Baltijas valstīm grupai ir īpašas attiecības. Pirmo reizi Mašina Vremeņi (Машина Времени) izbrauca ārpus Maskavas un tās apkārtnes 1976.gad#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/20508&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comā – uz festivālu Tallinā. No 80-to gadu sākuma līdz šodienai Baltijā koncerti notiek regulāri.

No skatuves skanēs visu laiku labākās dziesmas no 70-to gadu sākuma līdz pat šodienai.

Uz tikšanos 24.okto#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/20508&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.combrī Arēnā Rīga!

2019. gads Cižam un kompānijai ir zīmīgs ar vērienīgu turneju, kas veltīta par godu jubilejai. Koncerts būs aizraujošs, jo mūziķi  sagatavojuši programmu, kura ietver visu Sergeja Čiža Čigrakova daiļrades ceļu. Daudzi skaņdarbi izskanēs pirmo reizi, bet hiti tiks atskaņoti negaidītos aranžējumos.

ARTURS SKUTELIS IZSLUDINA JUBILEJAS KONCERTU

Atzīmējot muzikālās darbības un debijas albuma “Manī mīt” desmitgadi, hip-hopa mākslinieks Arturs Skutelis izsludina īpašu jubilejas lielkoncertu, kas notiks 2020. gada 6. martā koncertzālē “Palladium”. No šodienas koncerta biļetes ir pieejamas visās “Biļešu Servisa” kasēs. 

Arturs Skutelis ir viens no zināmākajiem un savdabīgākajiem latviešu hip-hopa mūziķiem un tekstu autoriem, studijas un radošās apvienības PKI (Eliots, ansis, Edavārdi u. c.) dibinātājs, dzīvās mūzikas grupas “Tvērumi” līderis. Nominēts Latvijas mūzikas Gada Balvai “Zelta mikrofons”, Latvijas Mercury Prize godalgas ekvivalentam – Austras balvai, vairākas reizes ieguvis Latvijas Hip-Hopa Gada Balvu, saņēmis Zentas Mauriņas balvu, Veronikas Strēlertes piemiņas balvu u. c. apbalvojumus. Viņa mūziku var raksturot kā avangardisku hip-hopu ar dažādu citu žanru klātbūtni, pilnu ar asprātīgām metaforām, vārdu spēlēm un tekstuāliem eksperimentiem, kas savīti pilsētvidē pierakstītos stāstos.

6. martā koncertzālē “Palladium” Arturs Skutelis vairāk nekā divu stundu garajā jubilejas koncertprogrammā izpildīs aizvadītajā desmitgadē tapušos skaņdarbus, uz skatuves aicinot arī daudzus iepriekš neizsludinātus koncerta viesus un domubiedrus, ar kuriem kopā darināta mūzika kopš 2009. gada. Programmu papildinās speciāli izveidota scenogrāfija, un kā īpašie viesi ar saviem solosetiem koncertu iesildīs vieni no mūsdienu spilgtākajiem latviešu bītmeikeriem: NiklāvZ, 181h un Oriole.

Comment on Awakening is a Destructive Process by Ruth Allan

 Cache   
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Isaiah 14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground...

World Communion Sunday liturgy for October 6, 2019

 Cache   
Texts: Lamentations 1:1-6; Lamentations 3:19-26; 2 Timothy 1:1-14; Luke 17:5-10

Call to Worship
In cities like Dallas and London,
where lives are lost and voices are not heard,
we call to mind that faith which is passed on to us,
that justice will speak out for all people.
In border towns and communities walled in by poverty ,
where fears destroy families and scatter neighbors,
we call to mind that hope which is passed on to us,
that peace and reconciliation will rebuild communities.
In neighborhoods not known, in places never mentioned,
where bitter tears are shed and the lonely walk the streets,
we call to mind that love which we can pass on
to those forgotten by the world, including us.

Prayer of the Day

It is not in the hollowness
of our fears,
   but there in the depths
   of your heart, Singer of Songs,
that the notes are written
that can reshape our lives,
that the melody of hope is composed.
Seed Planter,
you only did
what you ought to have done:
traveling our lonely cities,

     listening to
         the weeping of parents;

      reaching out to
         share our burdens.

You enter our hearts

   to heal them,
Spirit of love;
      you enter our fears
         to open us to possibilities;
      you enter our communities
         to create families;
      you empty yourself,
         so we may share the good
         treasure of hope with all
God in Community, Holy in One,
we lift our prayers as Jesus taught us,

(The Lord’s Prayer)

Call to Reconciliation
Faith, hope, love have all been passed on to us, not so we can hoard these gifts for ourselves, but so we might share them with others.  Let us lift our prayers to the One who is always ready to place forgiveness in our hearts, as we tell how we have not done this in our lives.

Unison Prayer for Forgiveness
     We think if we turn off the media, we will not need to listen to the voices of our neighbors, God of all the world.  We are blessed with family and friends, and so do not know the lonely.  We are at ease in a world which is troubled, and so do not notice the bitter tears of others.  Because we are people of affluence and privilege, we cannot understand those who are broken by the anger and brutality of the world.

   Yet, you know, God of the sufferers.  You hear the cries of those living in oppression, and call us to listen.  Your tears mingle with those whose children lie mangled or dead in war zones, and would have us be peacemakers.  Your faithfulness is great, when ours seems so futile, yet you would have us serve the world alongside your Child, Jesus, even as he served us with his life and gifts.  Amen.
Silence is kept

Assurance of Pardon
Call this to mind: God is ever faithful; hope is the gift passed on to us, love is the gift we can share with others; God’s mercies never come to an end.

Great is God’s faithfulness to all people, in all places. Thanks be to God, who has given us the promise of life in Christ Jesus our Lord! Amen.

Prayer of Dedication/Offering
We are here, because of those who passed on their faith to us.  We are generous, because God has blessed us with gifts beyond imagination.  We would pass on these gifts, as well as hope and love, as we offer them to our God, in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Great Prayer of Thanksgiving
May God be with you.
And also with you.
People of God, lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the One who cradles our hearts in loving hands.People of God, let us give thanks to the God who sets a Table for us.
We praise the Lord our God who welcomes us with open arms.
How lonely was chaos, Gardener of the Universe,
until you spoke a Word, and your Spirit created:
   leaves that burnish gold and red in autumn,
   snow that drifts lazily in winter skies,
   frozen brooks that burst in spring,
   ponds splashing with children in summer.
You planted the seeds of joy in our ancestors
hoping they would pass them onto us,
   but they walked sin’s lonely streets
   and drank the bitter tears death offered.
Though the prophets came
to remind us of your great faithfulness,
   we continued to feast on the
   wormwood and gall offered by the world.     
But you would not forget us,

and so sent Jesus to bring us home to you.

Therefore we join our voices,
as we sing of your mercies
made fresh in every moment

Sung: (tune: Bunessan 5.5.5.4D)
God of Creation, Lord of all beauty,
All creatures join in singing your love;
Holy Compassion, Joy of our mornings,
Fill us with grace which comes from above.


You alone are holy, heart Speaker,
and we are blessed through Jesus, life’s Promise.
When we would wander the lonely streets of the world,
   he would take us by the hand,
   to lead us into your joy.
When others would pass on

bitterness and hate to us,
   he fills us with the gifts
   of hope and love.
Splashing in sin's puddles,
    he washed our feet
    and dried them with his love,
         leading us into the kingdom.
Daughters of despair, sons of sadness,
orphans of woe -
     he gathers us all up
     in his arms of mercy
          wiping out death,
     and sits us down
          at the family Table.

As we remember his grace and love,
as we dare not forget his sacrifice for us,
we sing of that mystery we call faith:

Sung: Christ of the outcast, Comfort of mourners,
Neighbor to strangers, Love without end;
Bearer of burdens, Grace ever with us,
Blessing our children, Brother and Friend.

Holy Spirit,
as we offer the gifts
of the bread and the cup
for your blessing,
so we present ourselves:
     our accomplishments, our failings,
     our hopes, our realities.
Make us weak,
     so we might rely
          on your strength.
As we have heard the Word,
     may we listen
          to the cries of the poor.
As we are family
with those sitting beside us today,
     may we love our sisters and brothers
          in every corner of creation.
As you hold out
the bread and the cup to us,
     may we reach out to enemies
          to clasp hands as friends.

God in Community, Holy in One,
all honor and glory are yours,
as we sing our praises through all eternity:

Sung: Spirit of kindness, Breath of forgiveness,
Faithful Companion, just as Christ said;
God's little children gathered together,
Drink of salvation, feast on your Bread.


Sending
God would send you forth into the loneliness of the world.
we would call this to mind,
as we go to embrace all the rejected and forgotten.
Jesus would send you forth into the bitterness around us,
we would call this to mind,
as we seek to have all voices heard, all grief comforted.
The Spirit would send you forth into the brokenness of others,
we would call this to mind,
as we carry peace and love to neighbors and strangers.

Show + Tell: Confronting Pain (Week 4)

 Cache   
While some people have intellectual concerns with Christianity, others have trouble with faith simply because of the pain they experience in their lives. They want to know: how can God allow me to suffer? Psalm 23 expresses beautiful promises from God as He walks with us through our pain.
          

We are the War Criminal

 Cache   
Major column by Mohamad Bazi at THE GUARDIAN:


Since Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in Yemen’s civil war in March 2015, the United States gave its full support to a relentless air campaign where Saudi warplanes and bombs hit thousands of targets, including civilian sites and infrastructure, with impunity. From the beginning, US officials insisted that American weapons, training and intelligence assistance would help the Saudis avoid causing even more civilian casualties.

But this was a lie meant to obscure one of the least understood aspects of US support for Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen: it’s not that Saudi-led forces don’t know how to use American-made weapons or need help in choosing targets. They have deliberately targeted civilians and Yemen’s infrastructure since the war’s early days – and US officials have recognized this since at least 2016 and done little to stop it.
A team of United Nations investigators, commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council, presented a devastating report in Geneva in early September detailing how the US, along with Britain and France, are likely complicit in war crimes in Yemen because of continued weapons sales and intelligence support to the Saudis and their allies, especially the United Arab Emirates.

Despite pressure from Saudi Arabia, the Human Rights Council voted last Thursday to extend its investigation.

If the council pursues an aggressive investigation based on the 274-page report, the world might finally see some accountability for war crimes committed in Yemen over the past five years. The report’s authors submitted a secret list of individuals who may be responsible for war crimes to the UN human rights commissioner, Michelle Bachelet, but it’s unclear if that list includes any western officials. The report said third states that have influence on Yemen’s warring parties – including the US, Britain, France and Iran – “may be held responsible for providing aid or assistance for the commission of international law violations”.

American complicity in the Yemen war goes beyond providing training and intelligence support, and selling billions of dollars in weapons to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, which has become Washington’s largest weapons buyer. The US is looking the other way while its allies commit war crimes and avoid responsibility for instigating the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.



True.  There's a reason so many around the world do not see our country as good or even not bad.  We have a strong inclination to ignore that view.  Hillary Clinton fanatics, for example, in the US refuse to recognize the feelings of so many in the Middle East when they express distaste for Hillary as a result of the policies she has supported that have destroyed their lives, the lives of their friends and their family.  We don't want to own what our government has done.  This goes exactly to Trina's post last night.  Not only do our rulers need to be held accountable, we need to take accountability for looking the other way and ignoring the damage done to so many.


Meanwhile, Bernie proves again why he should be president.

  1. It's going to be a real pleasure defeating you.


Even recovering from surgery, Bernie's instincts are solid.



"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Thursday, October 3, 2019.  Even Joe Biden's friends in the press denying anything wrong took place demonstrates that Joe did something wrong and meanwhile the protests continue in Iraq.


In the United States, the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination continues.  While Senator Bernie Sanders has been temporarily sidelined due to surgery, War Hawk Joe Biden continues to flounder as desperation hits in.



I will put the integrity of my whole career in public service to this nation up against President Trump's long record of lying, cheating, and stealing any day of the week.





Will you put that record up?

Is that the record where you tell the public that you always believed Anita Hill but others -- including a US senator -- are on the record saying you told them you knew Anita was lying?  Is that the record?

Or is it the record where you were a cheerleader for the Iraq War?  Have you ever apologized to the Iraqi people for that?  You certainly haven't apologized to the American people.  You've either said that you were tricked by Bully Boy Bush or you've lied that you were against it as soon as it started.

Is it the record where you pushed through the 'crime' bill that targeted African-Americans?  This as your little blond princess niece assaults a police officer and does no time and then, a few years later, is caught stealing over $100,000 and does no time.

Caroline Biden.  Apparently she has a major vag problem.  Apparently she's crusty lips down there.  Apparently she had to steal a credit card and charge over $100,000 worth of Vagisil at a drug store to deal with her crust lips and to stop popping out loafs of sourdough bread from her personal oven.  Apparently, one of her boyfriends asked her why she was chewing bubble gum with her vagina and she replied that wasn't bubble gum, those were yeast bubbles.

That's got to be it, right?  The press doesn't want to talk about a thirty-something woman who's Joe Biden's niece and stole over $100,000 so it's got be vag related, right?  That's the only reason they're so mum on the topic.  (See Nora Ephron's essay "Dealing With The, Uh, Problem.")

When is Joe going to be asked why his niece was shown favoritism?

Joe's hoping and praying that his hideous campaign can struggle on through South Carolina.  He knows he's losing Iowa, he knows he's losing New Hampshire.  but if he can stay in until South Carolina, he just knows he'll prove to be a winner.

Now Iowa, please remember, knocked him out of the race in 2008.  He bowed out immediately after.

But he thinks the myth of Joe Biden support among African-Americans will save him this go round.

He is not huge with African-Americans.  He's popular with middle-aged and elderly African-Americans but, as his own campaign polling demonstrates (his campaign poured over it Monday), it's a very soft support.  It's doubtful South Carolina African-Americans from his age range will stick with him if he loses Iowa -- forget losing Iowa and New Hampshire.

Joe's desperate and it's really starting to show.

Link to headline article



And he's right, Donald Trump is not going to destroy Joe Biden -- mainly because Joe's doing such a good job of that all by himself.


Whenever he's lying, Joe likes to claim that he's the voice of truth.  That's his tell.

Or have we all forgotten this: "This is the God's truth.  My word as a Biden."


So many whores rush to prop Joe up.  Like here.

Twitter has since removed the video featuring Nickelback’s song “Photograph” for copyright reasons that President Trump tweeted on Wednesday. This, as the president accused Joe Biden of abusing his power to help his son. There’s no evidence of wrongdoing, reports.

Questa faccenda dell'"erotica dell'insegnamento" mi ha colpito parecchio.
Da anni durante le mie lezioni utilizzo il lemma "sexy" per definire talune scritture e altre storie. Ho sempre condiviso una visione estremamente corporea del sapere. Un sapere che si fa carne e sangue nel godimento dello studio.

Massimo Recalcati ne fa una trattazione colta, dotta, ma fruibile, persino per chi, come me, ha una competenza piuttosto tangenziale degli aspetti psicologici e psicanalitici.

Userò le sue parole per raccontare intuizioni che ho vissuto in questi anni di docenza, intuizioni che Recalcati, meglio di me è in grado di sistematizzare.
Drammi privatissimi trovano posto nel circo dei talk show, una cattiva retorica pedagogica sostiene la necessità infinita del dialogo: si può dire e parlare di tutto senza alcun limite…
… Le parole che diventano “solo parole” sono parole che hanno perduto il nesso etico che le vincola alle loro conseguenze…
… La parola non è mai solo una parola, perché trasforma, plasma, genera la vita.
Al netto della polemica, un po' banale, sulla tv spazzatura, mi interessa qui approfondire il concetto di responsabilità della parola, parola che rappresenta (in senso etimologico), parola che determina costruzione di senso.
Noi non usiamo semplicemente le parole, ma siamo fatti di parole, viviamo e respiriamo nelle parole…
 
L’impatto con i corpo della parola è sempre un incontro erotico. Se la parola sa incarnarsi in una testimonianza - se chi parla mostra che quel che dice ha un rapporto stretto con la vita del desiderio, se chi parla parla a partire dal proprio desiderio - gli oggetti del sapere acquisiscono lo spessore erotico di un corpo, si libidicizzano, si animano.
E qui la declinazione sulla responsabilità della parola scivola sulla responsabilità del docente, che usa la parola, la consegna, cercando di ridurne l'impatto veritativo, alla ricerca di una proposta di senso.
Una proposta che non scada nella scorciatoia, che Recalcati definisce fondamentalismo. La scorciatoia della cristallizzazione dei concetti.
È il rischio fondamentalista che corre ogni insegnamento scolastico: ridurre la possibilità aperta della risposta a una sola risposta possibile, richiudere l’apertura del mondo, appiattire la verità sul sapere già saputo.
E ancora, il punto non è offrire una competenza definita e definitiva, un sapere che invece di farsi nella relazione rappresenta una sorta di "passaggio di consegne", come se il docente dovesse riempire un lungo modulo con le competenze necessarie.
Socrate punta a mostrare che il sapere non è affatto un oggetto contenuto nel contenitore dell’Altro, ma l’effetto di un percorso che ogni soggetto è tenuto a sapere in proprio, senza che esista, a garantirlo, un tracciato definito a priori… Il sentiero si fa solo bel movimento di chi lo percorre, perchè non esiste prima di esso.
 
Se il maestro non sa tacere il proprio amore, rischia di esigere, volontariamente o meno, che l’allievo segua le sue orme, che diventi ciò che lui si attende. Solo tacere l’amore può svuotare il luogo dell’Altro di ogni attesa e permettere al soggetto di incamminarsi per la propria via.
E infine, in modo puntale ed evocativo, citando anche Riccardo Massa Socrate viene paragonato ad un "corruttore" parola che di acchito mi porta a Mangiafuoco e al paese dei balocchi, ma in realtà offre una ricca suggestione della forza, espressa o meno, del docente che accompagna gli studenti in un percorso di scambio.
Perché vi sia desiderio di sapere è necessario un contagio, un incontro con un testimone di questo desiderio…
Socrate in quanto educatore è molto più corruttore che maieuta. O, perlomeno, è in quanto oggetto di amore da parte dei giovani, anziché sedotto da essi, come può fungere da ostetrico e formatore.
E il sapere, a questo punto desiderato è un percorso, un percorso quasi iniziatico, che permette allo studente di aprire la sua strada, di percorrere la *sua* via, a partire da un sentiero tracciato ma non blindato.
Sapere infatti non significa solo accrescere le conoscenze, potenziare la propria istruzione, ma anche, e soprattutto imparare ad aprirsi all’apertura del desiderio, aprire attraverso questa apertura altri mondi rispetto a quelli già conosciuti. Per questo l’erotica non può mai essere situata in alternativa alla didattica.
Il maestro non solo conduce lungo le strade che non si conoscono affatto, ma, soprattutto, come ci indica il gesto di Socrate, muove il desiderio del viaggio.
E infine, l'ultima chiosa ci riporta al lavoro quotidiano, alla costruzione della "cassetta degli attrezzi" che, al di là dei voli pindarici rappresenta uno dei pezzi significativi del lavoro del docente.
Il maestro invita i suoi giovani allievi a prendere contatto con le lettere, a sceglierne alcune,a comporre ciascuno a proprio modo il mistero della parola. Non è questa la funzione insopprimibile della scuola e di ogni insegnamento? Non offrire un sapere saturo, dunque già morto, ma gli strumenti, gli attrezzi, le parole per realizzare la propria ricerca, il proprio stile, la propria frase?

          

Leggere Giorgio Manganelli

 Cache   

Giorgio Manganelli, a vedersi, parrebbe un signore dotato di significativa bonomia. Un signore simpatico, di una certa età, con lo sguardo aguzzo. Uno da cui ti aspetti la battuta fulminante. Uno di quelli che se ci inciampi bevendo il caffé fa piacere farci una chiacchiera.
Ma Manganelli scrittore è feroce. Intenso, pungente. Picchia duro sull'italico volgo (ricomprendendo nella categoria dal portinaio al ministro), e sulla italianità. Uno di quelli che non ne fa passare una, ma senza spocchia. Come se lui, per primo, fosse il destinatario della sua crudele analisi.

In un tempo felice acquistai l'opera omnia del nostro, e ora, piano piano, me la sto rileggendo. E imparo. Sono sul treno o in metropolitana, armato di matita e post-it e mi segno le cose rimarchevoli, quelle che mi balzano agli occhi, e mordono il cuore.

E la raccomandazione suona un po' così:

[...]

 

E' possibile che il potere non sia ingiusto? E' pensabile un potere che rinunci ad essere potente? La raccomandazione presuppone, non solo un potente, ma un debole; e il potente ama i deboli di un affetto cannibalesco, giacché essi sono i pascolo dei suoi candidi denti.
[...]
La raccomandazione è vergognosa; ecco, sono incerto se porre a questo punto una interrogazione; giacché mi accorgo di quante cose vergognose è fatta la nostra esistenza, quanto c'è in essa di ontoso, di clandestino, di inconfessato. L'italia - dove l'istituzione fiorisce ma che certamente non ne è il suo eden - non pare interessata all'idea di una società giusta; essendo una società di moltissimi deboli e pochi potenti, è una società di complici.
Abolire la raccomandazione, e per legge, vuol dire impedire ai deboli di essere tali, ed ai potenti di godere di potenza; e notate che a fare la legge dovrebbero essere i potenti, e gli altri potenti dovrebbero amministrarla.
Che in tempo di rinnovata pietas della politica; una pietas tutta da dimostrare, mi pare un punto da tenere presente.

17 macetas ideales para decorar cualquier rincón de tu casa

No hay minimalismo ni estilo decorativo alguno que reniegue de las plantas y sus correspondientes macetas.  Para que una casa esté completamente decorada tiene que tener plantas, aunque sean artificiales, que nos gustan mucho menos pero sabemos que no siempre se pueden mantener las plantas naturales en buen estado.

Si sientes que  le falta "algo" a algún rincón de tu casa, o si ves un poco triste tu casa; llenarlo con plantas puede ser la solución que estabas buscando

Para decorar un rincón con plantas puedes hacer hacer dos cosas. O colocar una bonita y gran planta que llene ella sola el rincón o crear un conjunto con varias plantas y macetas de distintos tamaños y altura (ayúdate de las macetas de pie), para que el rincón se llene de vida.

macetas

La ventaja de colocar un conjunto es que puedes aprovechar para introducir distintos materiales y texturas en las macetas que completarán la estancia

Porque si en las plantas hay variedad, en las macetas también. Solo cambiando las macetas de las plantas que os acompañan en casa , conseguirás de forma económica y eficaz de dar un nuevo aire a tu casa este otoño.

Por eso, hemos seleccionado algunas de tendencia para conseguir este efecto.

LAS MACETAS CESTAS

El ratán y el mimbre en el interior de las casa sigue estando muy de moda. Por eso, las cestas tradicionalmente empleadas en casa para guardar mantas o revistas han pasado también a cubrir las macetas.

La cesta más clásica tiene un precio imbatible en Amazon.

Rosas con Esperanza

Me fui donde habitan tus miedos, detrás de los pesares y junto a tus recuerdos. Encontré rastros de tu corazón roto, lagrimas saladas, todos los besos que dejaste en otras bocas y el mar.


Mira como llegan los navíos frente a la ventana en cada atardecer, en cada uno de ellos apareces y te vas. Las ilusiones son como el perfume de todo tu cuerpo, la inmensidad de tu mirada me alimenta y la noche.


Te vas y vuelves como la luna que a veces ni si quiera se ve por las nuves del algodón de tus pechos. La vida se encabrita con mi corazón que te llevas otra vez.

My Pie Is In The Oven

 Cache   

Apple Pie. I've made my share of pies and eaten even more, but this is the first crust I've tried. A homemade crust can make a pie lover worship a baker; it commands respect. It brings back memories of how Mom or Grandma "use to make it from scratch."

This crust of mine is not pretty, especially the bottom half. I have a lot of practice ahead of me if I expect to become an expert. Is the dough supposed to be this hard to roll out? Should I have added more ice water? My hands were warming the cold butter and shorting as I mixed them with the dry ingredients. Is that why I could not form a dough ball easily in my hands? The top crust came out much better. I was afraid to roll it out further and risk tears, so it's just a tad small; but I'll take that if it tastes good.

Buzz, Ring! Time to get the pie. OH MY GOD! Beautiful.


Apple Pie

Of course, I would never have tried the crust without encouragement from Nic at bakingsheet. Now she is a baker I respect, no, worship! I want to include her recipe for this pie in my format, one that, for me, is easy to follow. But that will have to wait. The required 1 1/2 hours have passed -- tortuously -- and it's ready to cut.

Heaven, if there is such a place, is in my pie plate!

The chart format I am attempting for this post's recipe is eluding me just now. I'll have to hunker down and go back to Food Blog S'cool to get just what I want. Now, it is nap time.



Apple Pie

2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. sugar


3/4 c. unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
1/4 c. shortening, chilled
6 - 8 T. ice water


1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 T. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. salt


6 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced

extra flour for rolling

2 T. unsalted butter, (reserved)

more flour

heavy cream (optional)
cinnamon-sugar (optional)

Combine the first three items. Using fingertips, mix butter and shortening with dry ingredients until no large chunks of butter remain. Add ice water. Make two equal size dough balls in your hands (or one ball if your hands are big enough). Wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 1 hr. Combine next five items. Add apples to sugar-flour-spice mixture and set aside. Roll one dough ball into disk; use flour to dust the board, pin, and dough. Use offset spatula or other "helper" to lay bottom crust in the pie plate. After bottom crust and filling are in pie plate, dot the pie filling with butter. Roll the other dough ball out, place on top of filling and butter. Press edges to top and bottom crusts together. Cut steam vents in top. Brush cream on top of pie for a darker color. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake @ 425°F for 10 min. Lower temp. to 375°F and bake for 1 hr. Let pie cool for a 1 1/2 hr. minimum ... if you can!

Kommentarer till Bitte Assarmo: Därför tiger Sveriges kyrkor och samfund om de äldres utsatta situation av Jaxel

 Cache   
Man kan beskriva det så här. Att ge uttryck och i handling visa omtanke om de äldre borde vara självklart. Ett sådant förhållnungssätt visar således inte på någon särskild godhet. Att däremot ge uttryck för och i handling visa på djup omtanke för människor på andra sidan jordklotet är inte alls lika självklart. Genom att göra det har man verkligen chansen att visa hur exceptionellt god man är. Det är förstås särskilt frestande enär denna godhet som demonstreras i prsktiken sällan är förknippad med några personliga uppoffringar Således prioriteras omtanken om våra äldre ned som en följd av en ambition att framstå som alldeles särskilt god - d v s som en följd av en sorts själviskhet. Frågan om man inte med fog kan beskriva det som motsatsen till godhet Sen tillkommer förstås det vanliga att svenska kyrkan vill vara makten till lags. Har den inte alltid varit det?

73% миллениалов в 15 странах считают, что психическое здоровье так же важно, как вода, пища и кров. В Украине и Швейцарии показатель еще выше.

Автор статьи: 
МККК/НГ

Pour la génération Y, la santé mentale est aussi vitale que l’accès à l’eau, à la nourriture et au logement – ceci est l’opinion de 73% de répondants, le taux étant encore plus haut en Ukraine et en Suisse.

(c) Unsplash/Sydmey Sims

Эти данные, взятые из опроса, который был проведен исследовательской компанией Ipsos по заказу расположенного в Женеве Международного Комитета Красного Креста (МККК) и в котором приняли участие более 15 000 человек в возрасте от 20 до 35 лет, показывают, что растет понимание значимости проблем психического здоровья в ситуациях конфликтов. Почти три четверти, а точнее 73% миллениалов, опрошенных в 15 странах, сказали, что удовлетворять потребность жертв войн и вооруженных конфликтов в охране психического здоровья так же важно, как обеспечивать их водой, пищей и кровом.

Из 15 стран, где проводился опрос, самым высоким уровень осознания важности помощи в области психического здоровья среди людей этого возраста оказался в Сирии. Там 87% опрошенных, число которых составило приблизительно 1000 человек, сказали, что потребность в охране психического здоровья для жертв вооруженных конфликтов не менее важна, чем потребность в воде, пище и крове. На втором месте Индонезия (82%), за ней следуют Украина (81%), Швейцария (80%), Россия (72%).



«В ситуациях вооруженных конфликтов вопросы психического здоровья слишком долго отодвигались на задний план. Невидимые травмы легко не заметить или счесть не самой главной проблемой и отложить ее решение на потом. Однако война имеет катастрофические последствия для психического здоровья и социально-психологического благополучия миллионов людей. Она может приводить к появлению новых проблем в этой сфере, равно как и к обострению ранее существовавших расстройств. В некоторых случаях это может стать угрозой для жизни», — сказал президент МККК Петер Маурер.
В местах, пострадавших от вооруженных конфликтов, более одной пятой населения страдает теми или иными психическими расстройствами, от легкой депрессии и тревожности до посттравматического стрессового расстройства. Это в три раза превышает аналогичный средний мировой показатель. Потребности людей, затянутых в водоворот вооруженного конфликта, в охране их психического здоровья и социально-психологического благополучия должны надлежащим образом учитываться сегодня, когда в мире проблемам психического здоровья уделяется все больше внимания.

«Защита психического здоровья в условиях войны и насилия может быть не менее важной для спасения человеческих жизней, чем перевязка кровоточащих ран или предоставление чистой воды. Раны, невидимые для глаз, не менее опасны», — заявил Петер Маурер.

На этой неделе, когда отмечается Всемирный день психического здоровья, МККК призывает все государства сделать охрану психического здоровья и социально-психологическую поддержку в ситуациях насилия и вооруженных конфликтов своим приоритетом, как дело первостепенной важности на начальном этапе оказания гуманитарной помощи и как неотъемлемую часть внутригосударственной и международной систем реагирования на чрезвычайные ситуации.

On Nov.15 2016 at 1230 hours I was driving home from work and camera filmed two cloaked UFO'S. Go frame by frame and you'll see them. One looks like a red cloud and it's only in one frame. The other a silver cigar shape that moved with unconventional speed. Never saw with eye's. Only upon review of footage at later date and time. Look me up through M.U.F.O.N. More of my report's there. The photo with UFO over my carport was cloaked. I filmed it on 040317 if my memory serves me correct. I filed the report with blackvault several times over the last week and a half and I'm now awaiting contact. There's much more. I'm new here and what I speak of is very concerning to say the least. Am unable to directly post video's and still photto's. Keeps showing as broken links through Google of course/ you tube. I would offer, try going to my current you tube channel Naughty Monkey. Go under playlist's and you will find video's and slide show video's I put up on my original channel 2016-2018. My old channel was - Daniel Heavens Reckoning Approaches Surles. If the video's are viewable through you tube just know I used great discernment at the time of posting. I could be wrong on some things and I don't expect anyone to buy into my opinions or views listed with said evidence, but believe me when I say what I have needs to be looked into by trained ufo-ology investigator's at the very least. My evidence ranges from 2016 to present in Thomas County Ga. Since all this started I have mysteriously had two computer system that worked fine go down in one night due to unexplainably having my administrator password's changed, locking me totally out. Not to mention video's and photo's just disappearing off of external hard drive's or rendered useless. Camera's and video camera's damaged by what I call " their frequency offensive counter measure's on cloaked drone's and hardware that very apparently is employed in my sky. I am a former U.S.M.C Marine (Infantry), former Ga. P.O.S.T certified local law enforcement 13.5 yr.'s total (Two yr.'s of which as P.O.S.T. certfied Identification Technician/ crime scene), and former International Police Advisor to Iraqi Police for two yrs.'s. Any and all help would be immensely appreciated. If it seems I am sending this over and over again. It's because I am due to the wall of censorship I'm up against and have been up against for the better part of the last three year's. Again help in getting to the bottom of this or at the least exposing it would be greatly appreciated. I'm here for truth and all the people in America and worldwide who deserve the Truth of what's really going on right now everywhere. This is ramping up more and more day by day. God Speed,

ekm’s 31 NIGHTS OF HORROR: EVENING 4 – THE ABSENCE OF GOD IN RELIGIOUS HORROR FILMS
 
One of the more popular cinematic genres of the 1970s was the Religious Horror Film.  Born as a reaction to the turbulent state of the world during this time, these modern-day interpretations of ancient beliefs both terrified and fascinated viewers across the world.  What's so interesting about how Christianity is represented – most notably in THE EXORCIST and THE OMEN, as well as their latter-day sequels -- is the idea that Evil is both alive and well in modern times; and yet for all the Biblical "truths" that contemporary society is willing to reaccept via the filmic medium, the supreme power in the universe--God Himself--is conspicuously absent within the narrative.  Both THE EXORCIST and THE OMEN present the notion that Satan is at work in our advanced and seemingly civilized world, but God, on the other hand, is nowhere to be found in either tale except as an invisible (and apparently impotent) entity.
THE EXORCIST deals with the specter of religion on a personal level.  Adapted for the screen from his novel, William Peter Blatty tells the story of 12 year-old Regan MacNeil and her possession by a diabolical entity.  After much head-spinning, urination, vomiting, and masturbation with a crucifix, her movie star mother, Chris MacNeil, recruits the Catholic Church in the form of exorcists Damien Karras and Lankester Merrin.  During the ritual, Merrin dies of heart failure, forcing Karras to take the demon into his

JOKER, or Arthur Fleck and The Technicolor DreamSuit

Read the full article on AICN

Where does one begin when discussing Todd Phillips’ JOKER? I find myself in a difficult situation as so much has already been said about this feature, and like a cat to its namesake nip I have been listening. Has all this cacophony influenced my viewing of the film? Absolutely. Am I still happy to have seen the film? Absolutely.
 
Let’s get a few things out of the way first. I had a fantasy: Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix - INVENTING THE ABBOTS, GLADIATOR) has turned the corner to a truly villainous life. His ambitions are growing large, his diabolical machinations stretching beyond his own two hands’ capabilities. It’s time to recruit muscle. CUT TO:
 
An office setting. CAMERA behind three men, seated before a desk where we see ARTHUR appraising them, his hands steeped to point before his furrowed lips. He sighs, comically and exclaims, “You’ll have to do!” CUT TO:
 
ARTHUR’S POV: the three men (WILL FERRELL, VINCE VAUGHN, & LUKE WILSON) smile and nod to one another. CUT TO:
 


This scene from OLD SCHOOL. Not a shot-for-shot remake. No, the actual scene, plopped into the middle of Oscar[™] Contender JOKER. That’s what I kind of wanted.
 
Yeah, that didn’t happen. Let’s move on.
 
Another thing we have to get out of the way right away: People are going to tell you this movie is goddamned amazing. They believe that. Not in the ironic way that I think that the Pledge PickUp scene from OLD SCHOOL is quality cinema (it is, but that’s not the point).

ekm’s BAT-MANUAL: CHAPTER 12 – BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (2016)
 
 
Is Batman a racist, xenophobic asshole?  Does Bruce Wayne support the construction of a wall to keep out all those dirty immigrants, and protect his Amurikkka from the illegals who are happy to do the shitty jobs no one else wants to?  Is his deepest fear not winged mice, but Kryptonians blowing leaves off his sidewalk, or washing dishes in the restaurant where he dines?  Depends on who you ask, but if we’re going with BATMAN v SUPERMAN, the answer is yes…until his abrupt (and literal) Come to Jesus Moment, at which time he transitions into the darkest Snowflake to grace the silver screen.  Given his history, it’s difficult to decide which interpretation is more fitting.
Politics and Batman are hardly a new combination.  Frank Miller’s progressive slide into utter insanity has resulted in hilarious memes (e.g., I’M THE GODDAMN BATMAN, and everything else) that have nonetheless infected the mainstream writing of an increasingly humorless sociopath.  The Dark Knight Returns was an Elseworlds commentary on the Reagan 80s, and how the threat of impending nuclear war gave birth to a Me Generation-punching Batman who built an army of disenfranchised, New Wave adolescents.  Subsequent installments in what ought to have been a standalone series have become notable for the writer-artist’s tendency toward homophobia, misogyny, and pissing on his own legacy.
But Miller’s chief contribution to the iconography of his so-called Dark Knight is the element of unbridled rage.  If you’re reading his

Grumpy McGrumpface: Dawkins on Brexit, democracy and God

 Cache   
Here is part of Professor Dawkins' "Diary" in this week's Spectator magazine:

I hate the very idea of a referendum. Referendums are capable of naming a ship ‘Boaty McBoatface’. We are a parliamentary democracy. We vote for representatives who have the time (and salary) to examine complicated economic and political issues thoroughly and give an informed vote. Nevertheless, having got into this mess through David Cameron’s cowardly folly, the only way out is another referendum. If Leave wins again, we should accept it with good grace and make the best of it. But it’s hard to imagine that Leave could possibly win again, now that we know — as we did not in 2016 — what Leave really means. A connoisseur, too, of religious faith, I detect it in the fanatical zeal of Brexiteers: those for whom the 2016 vote has become unchangeable holy writ; those who are prepared to force Brexit through at any price, even if the price is the obvious and undeniable disaster of no deal. Boris Johnson’s bullying, threatening bluster, when he should be apologising if not resigning, may betoken cynical ambition, but the ill-mannered cheering-on by his barmy supporters surely stems from blind faith.

The kitten of his argument is eaten alive with polemical fleas. Washing these off, we see that he says referendums sometimes give answers that those in charge don't like, which is true, but trite; and that we should have a second referendum because Leavers didn't know what they were voting for the first time, which is not trite and not true.

If anything, during the pre-vote campaign the Leave-inclined public had an unduly bleak picture of economic consequences painted for them by the PM, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Governor of the Bank of England, CBI and all the other panjandrums riding Tom Pearce's grey mare towards Widecombe Fair and their downfall.

One could also argue that Remain-inclined voters were insufficiently informed of the likely consequences of staying in the EU: the military buildup, the legal seizure of control over UK Armed Forces, the aspiration to Empire, the dangerous fiscal imbalances in the Eurozone, the growing regional inequalities that are feeding social unrest, the threat to the UK's Welfare State of unlimited Schengen "free movement of people." Professor Dawkins may find it hard to imagine Leave winning again, but his view is coloured by the knowitall Oxford milieu in which he lives, and which prevents him from understanding - perhaps he has never even met them - the "fanatical", "barmy" and "blind" majority of his fellow subjects.

You may also care to de-flea his preceding paragraph, which is equally tendentious and oratorical:

I would normally not mention Brexit in a diary such as this. But the humiliation of our sick-joke Prime Minister has dominated the week and cannot be avoided. I expected a good verdict from the Supreme Court, but its unanimity and decisiveness had me whooping and thumping the table with joy. It really deserved a standing ovation and I sensed one rising up from decent people all over the country. Whether you voted Leave or Remain, you are surely revolted by the unashamed manipulation of the Queen for partisan political ends. Ends, moreover, that have no sensible connection to ‘the will of the people’. For when ‘the people’ expressed their will in 2016, ‘Leave’ most certainly did not mean ‘Leave with no deal’. It meant, as we were repeatedly assured, an orderly and amicable separation.

One reason he will have been given this space to air his views is that he has just brought out another theological tome, "Outgrowing God." The review in Private Eye magazine (issue 1506, p.36) is unsympathetic and identifies, I think correctly, a weakness in him: an inablity to appreciate alternative points of view. He seems to be the sort of person who "knows what he knows" and that is not a quality to make the best sort of university teacher, I should have thought.

But then the professorship he held from 1995 to 2008 was not for scientific research and teaching per se - though he is a highly distinguished geneticist evolutionary biologist (corrected - please see Bruce Charlton's comment below). The chair of "Public Understanding of Science" was created specifically for him by the billionaire Microsoft applications developer Charles Simonyi, who will not have been unaware of Dawkins' views on religion. Dawkins was given a position that required him to communicate with the public; though under the circumstances, one wonders what is the gist of the messages Simonyi wished him to convey.

In any case, such is the Professor's "fanatical zeal" that he is in danger of undermining his own credibility. Philosopher and Christian Peter Williams says "far from being a disinterested advocate of truth, Dawkins spends his time preaching the gospel of atheism using a raft of fallacious arguments dressed up in an obscuring cloak of science" and gives examples of Dawkins' logical weaknesses here:

Returning to "Outgrowing God": the Private Eye reviewer says

... Worse still is the book's lack of empathy. There is no acknowledgement, let alone understanding, of the fact that, for some young people, science and reason may not offer the same degree of emotional comfort provided by the notion of God and, what's more, this does not necessarily make these individuals wankers. [...] There remains a coldness at the heart of Dawkins' writing that is as self-defeating as it is wearing.

I am sure that when discussing matters within his scientific field Dawkins makes perfect sense. But he may be blind to science's - and his own - limitations.

The philosopher AJ Ayer used to maintain that meaningful statements were only about what could be proved, a position from which he resiled later on. I suggest that one of the unprovable ones is Leibniz's question; "Why is there something rather than nothing?"

It seems to me that any scientific attempt to explain the origin of the Universe can only refer to things we observe in the Universe itself - time, space, matter, energy - and so the explanation will be circular. If the universe had a beginning, we cannot know how it started, even theoretically (references to a multiverse merely raise the question of how that started.) Alternatively, if there was no start, the brute fact of the Universe's existence is equally enigmatic.

I accept that by itself this conundrum goes nowhere near justifying all the tenets of religious dogmas; but I think Professor Dawkins should temper his assertions with a little humility and empathic understanding. He lays about him insensitively, like someone playing Blind-Man's-Buff.
