Třinecký útočník Stránský: Na přesilovkách musíme zapracovat

Do konce prodloužení zbývalo 53 vteřin, když brankář Bednář vyrazil střelu Adamského a Ondřej Kovařčík rozhodl o výhře hokejových Ocelářů Třinec v 8. kole extraligy nad Karlovými Vary 4:3.

Třinecká epizoda a zpátky do KHL. Nestrašil si plácl s Magnitogorskem

S třineckým klubem měl Andrej Nestrašil dohodu, že v případě lukrativní nabídky ze zahraničí může za určitých podmínek odejít. Stane se. Hokejový útočník, který v dresu českého mistra odehrál v extralize pouhé dva zápasy se vrací do KHL, kde se dohodl na roční smlouvě s Magnitogorskem.

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

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, 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.)

A Better Oakland: Flora opens tonight! (Updated with pictures)

Benchmarking Global Optimizers -- by Antoine Arnoud, Fatih Guvenen, Tatjana Kleineberg

We benchmark seven global optimization algorithms by comparing their performance on challenging multidimensional test functions as well as a method of simulated moments estimation of a panel data model of earnings dynamics. Five of the algorithms are taken from the popular NLopt open-source library: (i) Controlled Random Search with local mutation (CRS), (ii) Improved Stochastic Ranking Evolution Strategy (ISRES), (iii) Multi-Level Single-Linkage (MLSL) algorithm, (iv) Stochastic Global Optimization (StoGo), and (v) Evolutionary Strategy with Cauchy distribution (ESCH). The other two algorithms are versions of TikTak, which is a multistart global optimization algorithm used in some recent economic applications. For completeness, we add three popular local algorithms to the comparison—the Nelder-Mead downhill simplex algorithm, the Derivative-Free Non-linear Least Squares (DFNLS) algorithm, and a popular variant of the Davidon-Fletcher-Powell (DFPMIN) algorithm. To give a detailed comparison of algorithms, we use a set of benchmarking tools recently developed in the applied mathematics literature. We find that the success rate of many optimizers vary dramatically with the characteristics of each problem and the computational budget that is available. Overall, TikTak is the strongest performer on both the math test functions and the economic application. The next-best performing optimizers are StoGo and CRS for the test functions and MLSL for the economic application.

WAFU Cup: Nigeria's coach, and players, cannot afford to lose to Cape Verde

Nigeria's Phase 1 defeat to Togo at the WAFU Cup of Nations saw them drop to the Plate competition, and now they must beat Cape Verde to salvage any kind of goodwill from fans. A win in the match in Thies, Senegal, on Saturday night is a minimum requirement for what is essentially a Super Eagles B slash C team, made up of domestic-based players trying to reach the senior team. Coach Imama Amapakabo, on deck instead of regular head honcho Gernot Rohr, was quick to take responsibility after his side...

Politically incorrect anthropology

I have been reading about Napoleon Chagnon for many years now.  I wrote about his findings as early as 2003. So I was pleased to see a recent comprehensive summary of his work in Quillette

As I learned myself by working in two academic departments that covered anthropology, anthropologists are the most Lefist discipline in the social sciences -- and that is saying something.  Chagnon, however, was simply interested in reality and was one of the most committed anthropologists ever.  He spent years living among the people he described -- under conditions that few modern men could endure. So he knew what he was talking about.  Below is a brief excerpt from the Quillette article.  As you can see, his findings went right against the old Leftist claim that man was naturally good and kind but had been corrupted by modern civilization:

In 1966, Chagnon began working with the geneticist James Neel. Neel had had managed to convince the Atomic Energy Commission to fund a genetic study of an isolated population and was able to pay Chagnon a salary to assist his research there. Neel’s team took blood samples from the Yanomamö, and began administering the Edmonston B vaccine when they discovered that the Yanomamö had no antibodies to the measles. In some ways, the Yanomamö sounded like something out of any anthropology textbook—they were patrilineal and polygamous (polygyny); like other cultures around the world, they carved a position for the levirate—a man who married his dead brother’s wife; they had ceremonial roles and practised ritual confinement with taboos on food and sex. But sometimes this exotic veneer would be punctured by their shared humanity, particularly their mischievous sense of humour.

But for all their jocularity, Chagnon found that up to 30 percent of all Yanomamö males died a violent death. Warfare and violence were common, and duelling was a ritual practice, in which two men would take turns flogging each other over the head with a club, until one of the combatants succumbed. Chagnon was adamant that the primary causes of violence among the Yanomamö were revenge killings and women. The latter may not seem surprising to anyone aware of the ubiquity of ruthless male sexual competition in the animal kingdom, but anthropologists generally believed that human violence found its genesis in more immediate matters, such as disputes over resources. When Chagnon asked the Yanomamö shaman Dedeheiwa t0 explain the cause of violence, he replied, “Don’t ask such stupid questions! Women! Women! Women! Women! Women!” Such fights erupted over sexual jealousy, sexual impropriety, rape, and attempts at seduction, kidnap and failure to deliver a promised girl.

Internecine raids and attacks often involved attempts by a man or group to abduct another’s women. “The victim is grabbed by her abductors by one arm, and her protectors grab the other arm. Then both groups pull in opposite directions,” Chagnon learned. In one instance, a woman’s arms were reportedly pulled out of their sockets: “The victim invariably screams in agony, and the struggle can last several long minutes until one group takes control of her.” Although one in five Yanomamö women Chagnon interviewed had been kidnapped from another village, some of these women were grateful to find that their new husbands were less cruel than their former ones. The treatment of Yanomamö women could be particularly gruesome, and Chagnon had to wrestle with the ethical dilemmas that confront anthropologists under such circumstances—should he intervene or remain an observer? Men frequently beat their wives, mainly out of sexual jealousy, shot arrows into them, or even held burning sticks between their legs to discourage the possibility of infidelity. On one occasion, a man bludgeoned his wife in the head with firewood and in front of an impassive audience. “Her head bounced off the ground with each ruthless blow, as if he were pounding a soccer ball with a baseball bat. The head-man and I intervened at that point—he was killing her.” Chagnon stitched her head back up. The woman recovered but she subsequently dropped her infant into a fire as she slept, and was later killed by a venomous snake. Life in the Amazon could be nasty, brutish, and short.

Chagnon would make more than 20 fieldwork visits to the Amazon, and in 1968 he published Yanomamö: The Fierce People, which became an instant international bestseller. The book immediately ignited controversy within the field of anthropology. Although it commanded immense respect and became the most commonly taught book in introductory anthropology courses, the very subtitle of the book annoyed those anthropologists, who preferred to give their monographs titles like The Gentle Tasaday, The Gentle People, The Harmless People, The Peaceful People, Never in Anger, and The Semai: A Nonviolent People of Malaya.

The stubborn tendency within the discipline was to paint an unrealistic façade over such cultures—although 61 percent of Waorani men met a violent death, an anthropologist nevertheless described this Amazonian people as a “tribe where harmony rules,” on account of an “ethos that emphasized peacefulness.”  Anthropologists who considered such a society harmonious were unlikely to be impressed by Chagnon’s description of the Yanomamö as “The Fierce People,” where “only” 30 percent of males died by violence. The same anthropologist who had ascribed a prevailing ethos of peace to the Waoroni later accused Chagnon, in the gobbledygook of anthropological jargon, of the “projection of traditional preconceptions of the Western construction of Otherness.”


Britain looks to Australia on immigration as it seeks to 'end the free movement of people'

Britain's government says it is moving ahead with plans to adopt an Australian-style points-based immigration system.

Addressing supporters at the Conservative party conference in Manchester, British Home Secretary Priti Patel said the government is working hard to make it happen. "I have a particular responsibility when it comes to taking back control: It is to end the free movement of people once and for all," she said to rounds of applause.

"Instead we will introduce an Australian-style points-based immigration system."

Immigration officials in Australia assess skilled worker visa applications awarding points for proficiency in English, work experience and age. The screening system was first rolled out in 1979 and has in the years since been adjusted to better consider the preferences of employers.

Last month, Ms Patel wrote to the Migration Advisory Committee asking it to review if Australia’s points-based migration system could work in Britain. The committee has been asked to report back by January.

Ms Patel said she believes leaving the EU will provide Britain with a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to change the country's immigration system for the better.

"One that works in the best interest of Britain. One that attracts and welcomes the brightest and the best. One that supports the brilliant scientists, the finest academics and the leading people in their fields. And one that is under the control of the British government."

Canada and New Zealand have also adopted a points-style system for skilled migration.


Adults 'fail by giving in to trans teenagers'

Adults fail in their duty to children if they just give in to the "instant gratification" demands of transgender teenagers who protest they cannot wait until 18 for irreversible sex-reassignment surgery, clinical psychologist Paul Stevenson says.

Mr Stevenson, well known for helping trauma victims after the Bali and Jakarta terror bombings of the 2000s, said psychologists should not "disenfranchise" parents of trans teens, nor "drive a wedge" between child and family. He was commenting on a submission by the Australian Psychological Society that doctors should be able to go ahead with under-16 trans surgery, with both parents opposed and no mandatory counselling for the adolescent, as long as the clinicians were "competent" in assessing the teen's capacity to make the decision.

The APS claims 24,000 members but Mr Stevenson said his breakaway body, the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc, had picked up 2000 new members in the past year, taking the total to 8000, partly because of discontent with the APS.

The AAPi appears to be the first health or medical pro-fessional body in Australia to go public with scepticism about the "child-led" affirmation approach to trans, which critics say discourages thorough investigation of a young patient's history and too readily puts them on a path to risky medical treatment, including puberty-blocker drugs, cross-sex hormones and surgery, such as mastectomy for trans boys.

Gender clinicians claim children are experts in their identity and going along with their transition is best for mental health. Mr Stevenson said the sudden decision of a teen to come out as trans brought grief and stress not just to parents but to the extended family, and for everyone's long-term interests the crucial relationship between teen and parent had to be supported.

 "Psycholo-gists are not in the business of splitting up families," he said. He said the teenage years brought rapid and confusing development, and conflict with parents. Some neuroscience studies suggested the decision-making brain might not fully mature until a person reached their 30s, making it unwise to allow teens under 18 to consent to irreversible medical treatment.

"We've got to help parents get their children through this period of time when the (teenager's) frontal lobe is 'out for renovations'," he said. "Parents are the best-placed people to get their kids through this, we shouldn't be driving wedges between them."

Some parents have reported a pattern of teenagers, typically girls, suddenly declaring trans status with scripted lines from social media about the immediate need for hormones to stop them committing suicide.

Mr Stevenson said suicidal ideas — like any other mental health issues —should be treated directly. Flinders University's Damien Riggs, co-author of the APS submission, claims it is "scientifically, incorrect" to suggest social media or peer pressure might influence a trans teenager's stated identity. He has argued that Medicare should fund a trans mastectomy just as it does for a healthy woman with a genetic risk of breast cancer.

Online forums suggest trans mastectomy costs about $10,000. Dr Riggs, who won a $694,514 federal grant to study "family diversity", is cited as an authority in the 2018 treatment standards for children and adolescents issued by the gender clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne (which does no trans surgery).

Yesterday, the APS said the courts already allowed trans surgery for patients under 18. Where parents opposed it, "minors should have the right to access the opinion and guidance of suitably qualified medical professionals, including psychologists".

What ‘The Times’ Got Wrong About Slavery in America

The New York Times recently drew a lot of attention for its “1619 Project” initiative, which has been criticized for misrepresenting the role of the slave trade as the central core to the development of the United States. The Times “aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.

The project name purportedly refers to the date the first African slaves were brought to the English colonies that later became the United States. Like much else in the Times’ version of the role of slavery in American history, even the project name is rooted in distortion. Although the institution of slavery is a stain on national history, the true story is much more complex than the Times represents, and the United States plays a role both as a country that exploited the slave trade as well as a leader in the movement to end the African slave trade, and was not the primary instigator or beneficiary of the brutal trade.

1619 was not, in fact, the date of the first African slaves in the English colonies — those Africans were brought in under indenturement contracts, not bought as slaves. They were contracted to a fixed period of labor (typically five years) to pay for the cost charged by the Dutch slavers, at which point they were freed with a payment of a start-up endowment.

Indenturement Contracts, Not Slaves

This was not unusual or limited to Africans – approximately half of the 500,000 European immigrants to the thirteen colonies prior to 1775 paid for their passage with indenturement contracts. Anthony Johnson, a black Angolan, was typical – he entered Virginia as an indentured servant in 1621, became a free man after the term of his contract, acquired land, and became among the first actual slaveholders in the colonies.

The first actual African slave in the colonies was John Punch, an indentured servant sentenced to slavery in 1640 in Virginia by the General Court of the Governor’s Council for having violated his indenturement contract by fleeing to Maryland. In 1641, the Massachusetts Assembly passed the first statutory law allowing slavery of those who were prisoners of war, sold themselves into slavery, or were sentenced to slavery by the courts, but banning it under other circumstances.

Early slavery, like indenturement contracts, was not specifically targeted at those of African descent. The Massachusetts law was primarily intended to allow slavery of captured Indians in the aftermath of King Phillip’s War. The 1705 Virginia Slave Codes, for example, declared as slaves those purchased from abroad who were not Christian. A Christian African entering the colony, for example, would not be a slave — but a captured American Indian who was not a Christian would be.

Black vs. Black

Ironically, a freed black man initiated the court case that moved slavery to a race-based institution. The Angolan immigrant Anthony Johnson was the plaintiff is a key civil case, where the Northampton Court in 1654 declared after the expiration of the indenturement contract of his African servant John Casor that Johnson owned Casor “for life,” nullifying the protections of the contract for the servant and essentially establishing the civil precedent for the enslavement of all African indentured servants by declaring that a contract for such servants extended for life, rather than the fixed term in the contract.

It was not until 1662 that the children of such slaves became legally slaves rather than free men, in a law passed in Virginia. The African slave trade itself was minor until King Charles II established the Royal African Company with a monopoly on the slave trade to the colonies. As late as 1735, the Colony of Georgia passed a law outlawing slavery, which was repealed due to a labor shortage in 1750. The boom in the import of slaves actually began around 1725, with half of all imported slaves arriving between then and the onset of the American Revolution in 1775.

Relatively speaking, the United States was a minor player in the African Slave Trade — only about 5% of the Africans imported to the New World came to the United States. Of the 10.7 million Africans who survived the ocean voyage, a mere 388,000 were shipped directly to North America. The largest recipients of imported African slaves were Brazil, Cuba. Jamaica, and the other Caribbean colonies. The lifespan of those brought into what is now the United States vastly exceeded those of the other 95%, and the United States was the only purchaser of African slaves where population grew naturally in slavery – the death rate among the rest was higher than the birth rate.

While the institution, even in the United States was a brutal violation of basic human rights, it tended on average to be far more humane than in the rest of the New World.

The World Slave Trade

The Trans-Saharan and Indian Ocean African slave trade, which began by Arabs as early as the 8th Century AD, dwarfed the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and continued up to the 20th Century. Between the start of the Atlantic Slave Trade and 1900, it is estimated that the eastern-bound Arab slave traders sold over 17 million Africans into slavery in the Middle East and India, compared to about 12 million to the new world – and the Eastern-bound slave trade had been ongoing for at least 600 years at the START of that period.

The Western-bound Atlantic slave trade, contrary to the misrepresentation in “Roots,” did not involve the capture of free Africans by Europeans or Arabs, but by the trading of slaves (already a basis for the economy of the local animist or Muslim kingdoms) captured in local wars to Western merchants in exchange for Western goods. The first such slaves brought to the Western Hemisphere were brought by the Spanish to their colonies in Cuba and Hispaniola in 1501, almost a century and a half before the first slave in the English colonies that became the United States.

The last African state to outlaw slavery, Mauritania, did not do so until 2007, and if the institution is illegal on the continent de jure, it still is widespread de facto in Mauritania, Chad, Mali, Niger, and Sudan, as well as parts of Ghana, Benin, Togo Gabon, Angola, South Africa, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Libya, and Nigeria.

The contradictions slavery posed on the rebel colonies during the Revolution sparked a backlash against slavery and the slave trade. Colonel John Laurens, son of a large South Carolina slaveholder, noted the contradictions in 1776, stating that “I think we Americans at least in the Southern Colonies, cannot contend with a good Grace, for Liberty, until we shall have enfranchised our Slaves. How can we whose Jealousy has been alarm’d more at the Name of Oppression sometimes than at the Reality, reconcile to our spirited Assertions of the Rights of Mankind, the galling abject Slavery of our negroes. . . . If as some pretend, but I am persuaded more thro’ interest, than from Conviction, the Culture of the Ground with us cannot be carried on without African Slaves, Let us fly it as a hateful Country, and say ubi Libertas ibi Patria.”

The US Constitution Banned the Slave Trade in 1808

More shared that sentiment and the first law in the European world to outlaw the slave trade was, in fact, the US Constitution, which in 1787 banned the slave trade as of 1808. In Massachusetts, a 1783 court decision ended slavery, and all of the Northern States had passed emancipations laws by 1803. The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 outlawed slavery in territories north of the Ohio River. Other countries followed suit. Denmark-Norway banned the slave trade in 1803, but not slavery until 1848. Britain passed a law abolishing the slave trade in 1807, and enforced it with the Royal Navy, and abolished slavery itself in 1833.

In 1807, Congress passed legislation making the import of slaves to the United States a federal crime, and in 1820, Congress passed the Law on Slave Trade, which went beyond the British law in declaring slavers as pirates, punishable by death instead of mere fines – and the US Navy joined the Royal Navy in active interdiction of slave ships.

Economically, the institution of slavery, rather than develop the economy of the new nation, stunted its development. Although bonded labor, whether slave or indentured servant, clearly played an important role in developing a labor force in the early colonial days, its role in the advancement of the economy in the newly established country is questionable. Gavin Wright, in his classic book The Political Economy of the Cotton South, shows in fact that slavery hindered the development of the economy in those states where it remained legal. The artisans, tradesmen, and unskilled labor pool necessary for developing a thriving, diverse economy was discouraged by competition from bonded labor, and the slave-owning class showed little interest in such an economy.

How Slavery Stalled the Economy of the New Country

Increasingly, the economy came to be dominated by cotton monoculture, boosted by the invention of the cotton gin, and the value of the capital invested in slaves. In order to maintain the value of this capital investment, demand for slave labor needed to be maintained, which led to the slaveholding states demanding the opening of new lands for slave cultivation. Wright shows that, contrary to the assertions of many modern critics who try to claim that slavery was responsible for the development of the US economy and to the mistaken belief of secessionists prior to the Civil War, cotton was not King, but rather the greatest return from slaveholding was the capital increase from the reproduction of slaves.

Without new lands to be worked by the expanding slave population, the price of slaves would fall, and the wealth of the ruling classes in the Southern states would have plummeted. Thus, issues like the Wilmot Proviso or Kansas-Nebraska Act, which threatened to close off the expansion of lands to be worked by slaves, posed an existential threat to the wealth of the slaveholders. Meanwhile, unencumbered by the institution of slavery, those states that abolished the institution and emancipated existing slaves embraced other forms of generating wealth, including a manufacturing economy that rapidly outpaced that of the slave states. The Civil War was, in large part, won because the economy of free labor produced at rates that the economy of slave labor could not imagine. In fact, it was not until the abolishment of the Jim Crow laws preserving vestiges of the slave system that the economy of the New South truly began to take off.

While undoubtedly the issue of slavery and conflicts over its contradiction with the ideals of the new Republic shaped the political debates of the new country through the Civil War, it is going too far to assert that the slave trade and slavery were the central core of the development of the United States. Rather, it is more true to state that the ideals of the Anglo-Scottish Enlightenment and political beliefs shaped by the English Civil War and Glorious Revolution created an environment that exposed the immorality of slavery and established the political grounds for ending the slave trade, and eventually the institution of slavery in areas of Western European influence.

It was not a simple process, and required painful conflict to negotiate the conflicts and contradictions between the liberal ideal and the self-interest of those who owned human chattel, but ultimately rather than allow slavery to drive the growth of the nation, the new United States became a leader, along with their cousins in the Anglosphere, in the efforts to end the brutal and illiberal practice of slavery.

The New York Times does a disservice to its readers with the 1619 Project by presenting a simplistic and misleading story of the complex role that the institution of slavery played in the history of the United States, and it largely ignores the role that the underlying values of the Anglo-Scottish Enlightenment that undergird the new nation played in ending slavery and the slave trade.



Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Hiperpresidencialismo en Perú

Quienes desde el exterior aplauden que el presidente de Perú, Martín Vizcarra, haya disuelto el Congreso respondiendo al bloqueo parlamentario impuesto por Fuerza Popular, el partido de Keiko Fujimori, debieran saber que esa potestad presidencial – cuya ejecución la oposición considera fuera del debido proceso– viene precisamente del momento autocrático de la presidencia de Alberto Fujimori. Esa potestad, no muy extendida en Latinoamérica, también la tuvieron en su día los regímenes de Pinochet y Strössner, y la han incorporado las constituciones bolivarianas de Hugo Chávez y de Rafael Correa. Uno de los males de las democracias latinoamericanas es la hegemonía presidencial de sus sistemas políticos. En su independencia, las nuevas repúblicas copiaron el ordenamiento constitucional de Estados Unidos, pero dieron al presidente capacidad co-legisladora, desdibujando así la separación de poderes y dando al jefe del Estado un cierto carácter de monarca. Eso, junto con el patrimonialismo que endémicamente inspira el ejercicio del poder en la región, ha llevado a una pobre experiencia democrática. Con el tiempo ha habido intentos de corrección –en algunos países el Parlamento puede recusar ministros o promover un impeachment, o bien la ciudadanía puede revocar en referéndum al presidente–, pero el resultado ha sido en ocasiones aún mayor presidencialismo: es el caso de aquellos países en los que el presidente puede disolver las Cámaras, algo común en sistemas parlamentarios, pero normalmente impropio de un sistema presidencial donde el presidente ya de por si tiene suficiente poder y debe ser contrapesado por un sólido Parlamento. Doble vuelta presidencial y cohabitación Los sistemas electorales de doble vuelta o balotaje, que se han ido generalizando en Latinoamérica, pretendían dar una mayor legitimidad popular a los presidentes, en marcos políticos de decreciente bipartidismo y más multipartidismo, pero la consecuencia ha sido muchas veces una muy complicada cohabitación. En abril de 2016, en las presidenciales y legislativas, la hija de Alberto Fujimori y su partido fueron con gran diferencia los más votados. La derecha populista de Fuerza Popular logró 73 diputados, del total de 130 del Parlamento unicameral, frente a 20 escaños del izquierdista Frente Amplio y los 18 del partido liberal-conservador de Pedro Pablo Kuczynski. En la pugna presidencial, Keiko Fujimori logró el 39,86% de los votos, Kuczynski el 21,05% y Verónika Mendoza el 18,74%. La existencia de segunda vuelta hizo que la izquierda apoyara a Kuczynski, aunque luego le dejara solo en el Congreso, donde en cualquier caso Fuerza Popular tenía mayoría absoluta, lo que ya preconizaba un periodo de serias turbulencias políticas. En la segunda vuelta Keiko Fujimori se quedó a apenas 40.000 votos del triunfo. Caos institucional El pulso entre Fuerza Popular y Kuczynski, dimitido en marzo de 2018, y luego con su sustituto, Martín Vizcarra, ha tenido un efecto muy corrosivo para la democracia peruana, que ha debido hacer frente a la encarcelación de diversos expresidentes y de la propia Keiko Fujimori (en prisión preventiva) por asuntos de corrupción. El artículo 134 de la Constitución, aprobada en 1993, al año siguiente del autogolpe de Alberto Fujimori, establece que si el Congreso niega su confianza a dos Consejos de Ministros (la peculiar existencia en Perú de un presidente de gobierno, con características algo inferiores a las del primer ministro en un régimen parlamentario, también pervierte el funcionamiento de un sistema presidencialista clásico), el presidente puede disolver el Congreso y convocar nuevas elecciones. Estas tendrán lugar dentro de cuatro meses, en enero. La oposición estimó que Vizcarra no siguió el debido proceso (al disolver el Congreso para evitar que Fuerza Popular y el Partido Aprista nombraran miembros del Tribunal Constitucional), declaró vacante la presidencia y luego elevó a ese puesto a la vicepresidenta, Mercedes Aráoz, quien prefirió dimitir. El apoyo de las Fuerzas Armadas a Vizcarra ha consolidado los planes de este, con una oposición que, aunque ha pensado en boicotear las elecciones, parece prepararse para ellas, a la espera de lo que diga el Tribunal Constitucional. Sin precio para el presidente El error del sistema, a juicio del experto Humberto Nogueira, es que al presidente le salga gratis disolver el Congreso. En un estudio publicado en la revista «Estudios Constitucionales» dos años atrás, este jurista chileno advierte que «no es casualidad que el mecanismo de la disolución parlamentaria sin poner en juego la estabilidad presidencial haya sido implementada en los presidencialismos autoritarios de la segunda mitad del siglo XX». A su juicio, el uso de estos mecanismos «potencia aún más el conflicto y la crisis del sistema institucional democrático, ya que si luego de censurar el gobierno, el Presidente disuelve el Congreso y convoca a nuevas elecciones, si de esas nuevas elecciones se ratifica a la mayoría parlamentaria opositora al Presidente, el conflicto queda instalado en su máxima potencialidad, ya que el Presidente es inamovible hasta el término de su mandato, agudizándose así la parálisis y bloqueo del sistema político». Nogueira cree que el uso de la disolución parlamentaria en régimen presidencialista «solo puede utilizarse como mecanismo equilibrador, si frente a una reconfirmación de la mayoría parlamentaria por el electorado, el Presidente de la República tuviera la obligación de abandonar sus funciones y dar paso a una nueva elección presidencial». Es posible que Vizcarra cuente con que Fuerza Popular tenga menor peso tras las próximas elecciones, pero si él mismo tuviera el riesgo de perder el puesto en caso de que el próximo Congreso censure de nuevo su actuación muy probablemente se lo habría pensado mejor antes de disolverlo, imponiéndose un obligado entendimiento de última hora entre el poder ejecutivo y el legislativo. Pero el hiperpresidencialismo, como su nombre indica, supone un desequilibrio de poderes.

Liga Femenina 2: El Grupo A


Comienza una Liga Femenina 2 muy interesante en la que a priori el más complicado de los dos grupos es el Grupo A. En este grupo han quedado encuadrados los equipos madrileños junto a los gallegos y vascos más Aros Patatas Hijolusa y ADBA. Analizamos los diversos equipos.



Tras descender el año pasado desde LF, regresa al banquillo Lino López y son un claro favorito no a la Fase de Ascenso sino directamente a ser de los dos que suban a la máxima categoría. Para ello continúan jugadoras como Patricia Cabrera, Marina Delgado o Natalia Rodríguez. Además regresa Marta Tudanca y se unen jugadoras con experiencia en España como la pívot Sune Swart (Campus Promete), MaríaTorreblanca Segle XXI) además de la finlandesa Aniina Aijanen (Cadi La Seu). Además suman dos jugadoras americanas como la escolta Macy Miller y la pívot Jenna Allen. Completan plantilla la escolta de Samoa Geraldynn Malama Leaupepe y la alero bosnia Tamara Kapor.



El club celtiña ha rozado dos temporadas consecutivas el ascenso y esta temporada vuelve a ser un candidato a pelearlo. Es cierto que no continúa Raquel Carrera (Araski) pero también que recuperan dos lesionadas de larga duración como Tamara Montero y Ainhoa Lacorzana, dos jugadoras llamadas a ser importantes en el equipo. A estas renovaciones se unen las de Celia García Paunero, Iciar Germán y Anne Senosiain. Los fichajes de las de Cristina Cantero son tres. Una de ellas es María Barneda, una de las jóvenes más pujantes de la competición. Completan plantilla con dos jugadoras extranjeras, la ala-pívot Brianna Richardson que viene de Israel y que se formó en Mississippi State más la joven finlandesa Helmi Tulonen.



Proyecto prácticamente nuevo el de las leonesas en las que deja el banquillo “Moses”, que pasa a la dirección deportiva dando el relevo Bea Pacheco. Sigue la canterana Elisa Martínez y completan un roster con jugadoras experimentadas como la base valenciana Patricia Benet que ya conoce el club, la base canaria Laura Fernández o la pívot vasca Yaiza Lázaro. Completan una plantilla corta pero cargada de talento la tiradora paraguaya Claudia Aponte, la 3-4 argentina Andrea Boquete más su compatriota Julieta Mingo para la posición de pívot. Otro proyecto construido a priori para estar en la parte alta de la tabla.



Tras terminar bien la temporada pasada, las de Antonio Pernas son de nuevo candidatas a estar en Fase de Ascenso una vez más con una plantilla bastante competitiva. Con el entrenador continúan 4 jugadoras todas ellas exteriores: Paloma Dorda, Imani Tate, Alba Prieto y Blanca Ruiz de Assin (que volverá de una grave lesión). El equipo tiene refuerzos importantes todos con experiencia en la categoría con las bases Sara Sánchez y Esther Moreno, o la alero Vicky Viñe más tres interiores de nivel alto como Kristina Rakovic, Lina Pikciute y Sara Zaragoza.



Las vascas vuelven a ser otro equipo candidato a estar en la parte alta. Con Luis Agirre en el banquillo siguen contando con jugadoras del pasado año como Jessica Fecquiere, Intza Lizarazu, Alazne Lizundia, Maite Merketegi o Libe Villar. Además regresa la interior Maite Zubizarreta. 4 son los fichajes entre los que destaca la escolta Sara Iparragirre, vinculada con IDK Gipuzkoa o Cecilia Muhate, interior madrileña que viene tras finalizar ciclo en NCAA. Completan la plantilla la escolta balcánica Andjela Radovic y la pívot estadounidense Jaisa Nunn.



Tras quedarse a un paso de jugar la Fase de Ascenso Movistar Estudiantes vuelve a aspirar a lograr meterse en la Fase. Para ello mantienen a la escolta Paula Palomares (lesionada y que tardará meses en volver), a la escolta Irene San Román o a las pívots Aitana Cuevas y Mariana González. La base titular será en principio Laura Marcos con Andrea Malanda como suplente. Llegan las exteriores María Espín y Judy Jones. Para la posición de 4 otras dos jugadoras que experiencia incluso en LF como Gracia Alonso de Armiño (tras un año brillante en Canoe) y Leslie Knight. Alberto Ortego, entrenador del equipo dará además minutos importantes a una jugadora todavía en edad junior (Cristina Mato), alero de gran talento y que puede ser una de las sorpresas de la competición.



Después de una bajada importante de presupuesto (con el masculino en LEB) el año pasado las de José Luís Vicente sorprendían peleando por la Fase. Ahora, mantienen a bastantes jugadoras de la plantilla del año anterior con las que intentarán seguir siendo muy competitivas. Así continúan del año anterior las bases Rocío Torcal y Paula Santolaya, las exteriores Raquel García, Sandra Leal, Sara Alonso y Macarena Roldán más las interiores Lucía Rodríguez, Irene Baeza e Irene de Gregorio. Para sustituir a Claudia Aponte, María Villar y Gracia Alonso llegan dos jugadoras con experiencia en la categoría como la ex-capitana de Valencia Basket Esther Diaz que puede alternar el 1 y el 2 o Laura Prats, exterior que viene de Estudiantes. Para el juego interior apuestan por la portuguesa Emilia Ferreira. Macarena Roldán y Lucía Rodríguez apuntan de nuevo a referentes del equipo.



Uno de los equipos que a priori puede pasarlo mal es el equipo de Vilagarcía de Arousa que debe reponerse a bajas importantes como Sara Gómez y Salome García. Continúan jugadoras como Miriam García, Cristina Loureiro, Andrea Ríos, Lorena Castro, Irene Montenegro y Nerea Rey. Llegan la base-escolta Nuria Churen, la escolta Zeltia Presas. Patricia Vicente y María González Centeno aparecen a priori como fichajes más importantes mientras completan plantilla con las interiores Tyra Jones y Antia Varela. La experiencia en los banquillos de Rubén Domínguez se antoja importante para intentar no pasar apuros.



Muy interesante el nuevo proyecto de Alcobendas después de una temporada muy lejos de lo esperado. La primera novedad está en el banquillo con la llegada de Javier Portela (anteriormente en el staff de Ynsadiet Leganés). Siguen 4 jugadoras del año anterior como la base Lucía Togores, las exteriores Sol Carmen Molina y Sara Francisco más la ala-pívot Clara Rodriguez (MVP del Memorial Martín Caño). Llega la base Lucía Gutierrez, la escolta Cecilia Aldecoa, la americana Rachel Howard más 3 interiores que ya han jugado LF2 con equipos madrileños como la ala-pívot Paula Justel, la pívot Daira Varas y la ala-pívot Kiara Kudron, que jugó hace dos años a un nivel muy alto con Ynsadiet Leganés.



Tras ser un equipo puntero de la competición hace unas temporadas, el pasado año estuvieron en mitad de la tabla. Ahora tiene Josema Alcántara un proyecto muy renovado en el que sólo continúan la base Ane Arrien, las exteriores Peyton Ferris y Laura Arroyom más la interior Maiane Aizpurua. Intentarán paliar bajas importantes con jugadoras como las exteriores Ana Iruskieta, Paula Portilla y Virginia Saez más las tres extranjeras fichadas para la pintura: Elina Kosmikies, Thiama Kamara y Marta Miscenko.



Con la veterana Mayte Méndez en el banquillo y con a priori uno de los presupuestos más modestos de la categoría, las gallegas son otro de los equipos cuyo objetivo será la permanencia. Pierden además referentes como Cassie Oursler, Arantxa Mallou y Gala Mestres. Siguen Cristina Díaz-Pache, Carla Fernández, María Lago, Margarita Moreira y Noa Casalderrey. De entre los fichajes destacan la interior sueca Linnea Rosendal y la escolta Natalia López únicas novedades junto a Ana Martín y Aldara Vázquez.



Por tercera temporada será entrenador Juanjo García. Tienen un proyecto con muchas jugadoras de la casa o que estaban ya el año pasado como Sara Brandy, Ana Fernández, Sara Fraile, Nuria Maeso, Carlota Velasco o Elena Guijo. Llegan jugadoras imortantes como Jone Azkue (Ibaizabal) o María Iglesias (St.Thomas, NAIA). La referencia interior será la estadounidense Deangelique Whaite, jugadora de gran físico y que ha dado grandes sensaciones en pretemporada.  Además está a prueba la base portuguesa Marcia Rosana Guimaraes y buscan una interior después que fuese cortada la pívot serbia Teodora Saric. Con estos mimbres el objetivo es pasar menos apuros para mantener la categoría.



Después de lograr el ascenso CB Pozuelo ha firmado algunas jugadoras con experiencia para intentar quedarse un año más en la segunda categoría del baloncesto nacional. Así, tendrá Arturo Vela a varias jugadoras del ascenso y completa la plantilla con varias jugadoras de nivel. Así a jugadoras como Alicia Lapuente, Leire Martín, Laura Martínez Ojeda, Irene Maruri, Eliana Vargas o Rocío Trigueros añaden las bases Paloma González y Laura Velasco, la alero Teresa López y la pívot húngara Barbara Varga.



EL equipo vasco que entrena Alberto Cea, no es un recien ascendido al uso y presentan un proyecto ambicioso con muchas jugadora con experiencia en la categoría y con bastantes jugadoras extranjeras. Así, tienen bases como Vilma Kesanen y Sara Cuiña, exteriores como Iranzu Drake, Ane Larriñaga, Araia Peña, Marta Pérez o la samoana Geralynn Leaupepe. Además tienen interiores como la chilena Cata Abuyeres (clave en el ascenso), Adebayo Olabode o Patricia Soler más la americana Emily Ann Drake.


Immune Support from Quantum Nutrition

Dr. Marshall's Monologue:
Experience 21st Century nutrition. Nut just multi vitamin from coal tar derivitive resins and some dead mineral from a mine somewhere but cell resonant nutrition that can most rapidly help the body to achieve the ideal cell resonance for best health. That's only half of 21st centry nutrition. The other half is that for the first time we know that we are controlled by an all powerful bio field, a quantum energy biofield.

 To give you an idea of how powerful that little field is that constitutes your very essence; communication in the field is twice the speed of light. For those of you that recall the prognostications of Albert Einstein, he said nothing could travel faster than the spped of light. Well Albert was wrong. Inside that quantum energy field, communication has been proven to be twice the speed of light.We can now manipulate that field.
 That's the 2nd and most important part of  21st century nutrition. What's so amazing is the Ancients used to use mud at wounds and sites and scars. We considered this to be very foolish. We have now learned that that IS one of the primary ways to restore the healthy energy flow. And we now know the ancients new that. They must have had quite a teacher from somewhere. We are also learning that the  muds they used are a biochemcial marvel. They are known as
"maximum cat ion-exchange compounds". Translated to English - nothing on this planet can outdo those muds in removing heavy metals - or other 'cat ions' (cation). That's 21st Century Nutrition.

Special for the day is for immune upregulating:
Nucleotides: Called the "onset" in Europe. A fundamental building block of every cell. It takes 6 billion nucleotides to make 1 cell. When you have an immune battle, you need to be resupplied. Those that are breast fed have more nucleotide reserves. Those that are not breast fed witll talke a long time if you are short on reserves. Can help the body strengthen itselfe. A key player for rapid cellular rejuvenation, increased vitality, healthy immune response, and DNA upregulation since it is such a fundamental building block in the body. Promotes new skin cell growth and rejuvenation, nutralization of internal toxins, supports normal T-cell manufacture.

Colostrum: Capsules or Powder. Contains about 25% human active immunoglobulins: IGG and IGA. The first line of defense on the intestinal lining. Reliable immune support for the entire family. Not defatted because you may compromise the intercellular transport. Low temperature air dried so there is no damage to the molecular structure. A minimum of 21% immunoglobulin. Contains the 8th and most difficult sugar for the body to get; the elusive N-acetylneuraminic acid. The richest live source of MSM. Contains lacto ferrin whch helps promote healthy oxygen transport in the blood. Contains other immunoglobulins like IGM, lacto ferrin, prolean rich poly peptides, glyco proteins, interferon, oligiosaccharides, various enzymes that are critical etc.

First Caller:
male, calling for his wife, 50yrs old, 200lbs, who wants to have the best connective tissue health

When connective tissues are stiff or tight, it is one of the crossover areas in the body in terms of control. Part of the control is under the kidney and the other part is under the liver. The liver may be getting toxic from not doing the best job of digesting the food. If the digestion is not working so good, the incompletely digested food will be dumpled in the liver. The liver has to do something with it so it may dump some of it in the connective tissues, tendons. She should take 2 Quantum Digest at the start of the meal giving plenty pancreatic support. At the end of the meal for her body weight and age, she will need 5 HCL and 2 activator. This should hopefully stop the rotting food going into the liver.

 Now, we should support a healthy liver so she needs Reishi. Reishi can be sidetracked and used to balance the Ph rather than support the liver so she needs to get control of her first morning Ph. Get Ph trio with the aloe drink. Start with 1/2 teaspoon of coral, mix it with 1 ounce of water and 1 ounce of aloe. Every 3 days she will increase the coral until she gets the ideal Ph, every other day she will increase the aloe and the water. If it takes 3 or 4 teaspoons to get her to the ideal Ph, then there is some other problem in the body like a bad tooth. If she can't find the problem, she will need a QRA practitioner.
The liver is the most common player when there is tightness of tendons and connective tissue but you can also have this problem in the legs and such areas when there is kidney weakness so she will need to support the kidneys. She has had an episiotomy so that scar reflexes to the kidneys which may be an inteference field. Start with 2 or 3 Kidney Complexes per meal and see if she gets better health for the connective tissues. She should probably see a QRA practitioner.

Caller also wanted to know what to do for his 18 year old basketball playing son to keep him strong and well. Dr. Marshall says that everyday he should have Greens Mix and Tocotriene Complex. At breakfast, he can have a drink with Slim Body Whey, with some extra Quantum Whey,  Galactin, and Lecithin. The Tocotriene and Greens Mix can go in there as well. Can add Colostrum to this mixture as well. He can add bananas, blueberries or apple into the drink and blend it all together. These superfoods contain nutrients that are woefully deficient in American food.   

Next Caller:
female, 71 yrs old, 150lbs , 4' 10", wants better immune system

The best thing to do to give the best immune response after age 50 is to make sure we are digesting our food. Promoting better digestion may also promote a healthier weight for her as well. She should take 2 Quantum digest at the start of the meal. The better digestion will help with the sinus and frog in her throat as well. She will need to take 4 HCL and 2 activator at end of meal. These are only for the main meals. She can go to her local QRA person to help the energy flow in her body. To promote strength even faster, she can take Nucleotides, 3 at breakfast and dinner. Caller wanted to know if she needed more Vitamin C. Dr. Marshall says they best way to get it is by fresh fruit or if necessary it may be cheaper to use a supplement. Ascorbic acid is not really Vitamin C. Vitamin C cures scurvey and Ascorbic acid can not do that. Dr. Marshall's Vitamin C Complex contains ascorbic acid but also the bioflavenoids and all the other synergists critical to allow the ascorbic acid to do its job. The key for her though will probably be the Nucleotides and the digestion.

Next Caller:    
male, 31 yrs old, wants to promote better growth hormone production

A number of products claim to do this. They are called secretogogues. They have been shown to be helpful. Dr. Marshall's secretogogue has Lysine added to it to help vegetarians. Adaptogen, 3 at breakfast regardless of body size, will probably be better for him. Caller wanted to know about 'Black Seed'. Dr. Marshall says there are many benefits to it. It is in a number of Dr. Marshall's products in small amounts though since it is a synergist. It can help urinary tract and the lungs. Dr. Marshall suggests he shouldn't eat cooked foods  without taking digestive support so he can hold on to great digestion throughout his life. The digestive kit will give him HCL so he doesn't wear out his stomach's ability to produce it. The digestive kit also gives him live source potassium which helps take methyl groups of HCl back to the cells to promote remethylation. This slows aging.

Next, he should get on the Super Nutrient Tri which contains Coral, EFA Oil Blend and Greens Mix. This brings the food back to par. To get the antioxidants back to par, he should use DHLA, about 1 teaspoon of that a day, Max Stress B at 1 teaspoon a day, and  1 teaspoon of Super Nano Green Tea. If funds permit, he can get Wild Pollen and mix it with honey at 60% honey to 40% pollen. Take 1 teaspoon of this mixture in warm water -this helps the liver.  He should also find his scars and traumas and medibody pack them. Caller wants to know when he will see results. Dr. Marshall says he should see changes in a few weeks since he is fairly young. Max Stress B is the only source on the planet that contains CoEnzyme A. CoEnzyme A is used along with DHLA  to make ATP which is the super energy player at the cell. Adaptogen up regulates or promotes anything that is weak and down regulates anything  that is too high-it is an adaptogen; it brings everythng to ideal and is a stress antidote for American living.

Волшебство__Жизни: Узнайте правду! Что было на территории России до того, как её захватили Романовы Часть 1


В сегодняшней статье я хочу поднять щекотливую тему о жизни на территории России до того, как её захватили Романовы. За основу беру статью kadykchanskiy. Итак, начнем. Мы привыкли видеть ошибочное мнение иностранцев о российском народе и о России в целом. Некоторых это смешит, а кого-то и вовсе раздражает, когда в фильмах русских изображают в шапках — ушанках, с балалайкой в руках, пьющими водку прямо из горла и не морщась, и окруженных медведями, свободно разгуливающими по улицам.

Вот и захотелось восстановить справедливость, указав всем россиянам, что они даже не подозревают на чьих территориях проживают, какое название этих земель, традиции людей, живущих тут ранее... Именно так! Территории, где сейчас расположена Россия были захвачены. Многих возмутит такая наглость, но я постараюсь по порядку не торопясь объяснить, чтобы вы поняли, что не относитесь к русским, что ваши предки завладели этими территориями с целью пользования ресурсами и продажей их в другие страны. Если вы учили в школе на отлично историю своей страны, то не радуйтесь. Эта история была специально написана для вас, чтобы настоящую вы никогда не узнали. Впрочем, история поверженных дикарей до оккупации, победителю и не известна. Я сказал «дикарей» лишь условно. Победители же их считали дикарями, разве нет? Завоеватели Америки, разве индейцев считали людьми? Нет.захватили Романовы

Event Update For 2019-10-06


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Note: There was just an article the other day about how cold fresh water from the ice in Greenland melting is causing the Atlantic Ocean's circulation system to slow down. One sign that that is happening would be colder weather in Europe, since it is that circulation system that transports heat from the Gulf of Mexico across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Much of Europe is at the same latitude as Siberia and it is only that 'conveyor belt' transporting oceanic heat to the area that keeps the climate in Europe as mild as it has been. So the more that circulation system slows down, the colder it will get in Europe, offset to some degree by the overall warming that the planet is experiencing...

El Cortejo #Scientia #noticias


El pasado martes se celebró el solemne acto de apertura del curso académico 2019/2020 de las universidades públicas de la Región de Murcia. El protocolo ordena que todos los que formen parte del vistoso y colorista cortejo que participa en el acto deben ponerse el traje académico. Este año decidí vestirme en casa. No es fácil colocarse el traje académico así que le pedí a mi hija que me ayudara. Su cara de sorpresa cuando vio sobre la cama la toga, mucetas, birretes, puñetas y guantes no tenia desperdicio.


– Oye papi, ¿por qué tienes que usar estas cosas para vestirte? Este look no me mola nada. Con esa pinta no me lleves al cole o me muero de vergüenza.

– Cariño, la culpa la tiene una reina que tú estudiarás en clase. Me refiero a Isabel II, que firmó unos Reales Decretos  cuya configuración definitiva cristalizó a partir de 1850. A través de estas normas se reguló en España gran parte de lo que venía siendo habitual desde siglos anteriores y esa tradición se ha seguido manteniendo hasta hoy con la introducción de ciertas variaciones. No puedo ponerme la ropa que quiera. Por favor, pásame la toga.

– ¿Qué es la toga?

La prenda más grande. Se llama también "traje talar" porque llegaba hasta los talones. Es igual a la que usan los abogados, con manga abierta doblada y si te das cuenta está asida por un botón al brazo.

Vas a parecer un romano.

Claro, su origen arranca de la época romana y del traje eclesiástico, ya que los clérigos formaron inicialmente el profesorado de las universidades. La toga, que prácticamente ha permanecido inalterable desde su regulación en 1850, constituye la base de la indumentaria académica. Anda, dame ahora las puñetas.

– Papi, ¡¡puñeta es una palabrota!!

– Jajaja. Cierto, pero en esta ocasión me refiero a unos vuelillos encaje que, al principio, tenían como única misión evitar el deterioro de las bocamangas de las togas. Después pasaron a significar rango y autoridad. Por eso lo usaban ministros, consejeros, Rectores y otras autoridades. Actualmente los usamos también los profesores de universidad. Aun me acuerdo cuando me las puso el Rector en la ceremonia de la apertura del curso académico en el año que entré a formar parte de los cuerpos docentes de la universidad. Si no eres doctor no puedes llevarlas. En la silla está la muceta. Acércamela Ruth.

– ¿La mofeta?

– ¿Mofeta? Noooo. ¡¡Muceta!! Es una capa corta que hace muchos años servía para proteger de la lluvia o el frío. Luego se utilizó para distinguir a ciertas jerarquías y autoridades eclesiásticas. Pero en el mundo que a mi me interesa, el de la ciencia, se convirtió en una distinción de la misión de enseñar y  proteger la mejorar la ciencia. Hace años era de terciopelo y el color dependía de cada Facultad. Ahora la muceta, que debe cubrir el codo, es de raso, forrada de seda negra, con una cogulla (o capucha que antes servía de portapergaminos e incluso para recibir en solemne acto el título académico)  y abotonada por delante.

– Toma la muceta pero que sepas que a mi me gustan más las que son de terciopelo que las de raso.

– A mí también, princesa, pero esa solo se la puede poner el Rector. ¿Te importa darme el birrete?

– ¿Bi…qué? ¿Te refieres a ese gorro tan feo?

– Pues a mí es la prenda que más me gusta de la indumentaria académica. Al igual que las otras prendas ha sufrido modificaciones a lo largo de la historia. Si te das cuenta actualmente tiene forma octogonal el birrete de doctor, forrado en seda negra, rematado por borla compacta en la parte superior, flecos largos cayendo desde las aristas del octógono sobre las ocho caras laterales y con un cordón de seda entre la base de la borla y el origen de los flecos. Estos flecos son del color distintivo de la Facultad en la que obtuve el doctorado, Químicas. Aquellos que posean más de un doctorado que pueden usar en los flecos los colores de los mismos por partes iguales. El birrete de Rector se distingue porque es el único entero de color negro. Pero lo que más me gusta del birrete no es su aspecto externo sino lo que significa.

– ¿A qué te refieres papi?

– En cualquier vestimenta de gala siempre ha existido una consideración especial en torno a la prenda que cubre la cabeza, que va mucho más allá de razones prácticas. En multitud de ocasiones sirve para jerarquizar e indicar el rango de la persona que se la pone. En la Universidad solo pueden ponerse birrete aquellas personas que han leído la Tesis Doctoral. Cuando tu padre lo hizo hace más de 20 años, en la festividad de Santo Tomás de Aquino en la que se efectuó la investidura de doctores, el rector pronunció las siguientes palabras: "Recibe el birrete laureado, antiquísimo y venerado distintivo del magisterio. Llévalo sobre tu cabeza como la corona de tus estudios y merecimientos".

Birretes académicos

– ¿Y en el acto al que vas hoy el birrete también es importante?

– Claro. Hoy el Rector comenzará el acto académico diciendo: "Doctores y Doctoras, sentaos y, si lo así lo deseáis, cubríos". Esa frase tiene una razón muy relacionada con el birrete que tienes en la mano y me encantaba escuchársela a Elías Hernández Albaladejo, que fue profesor en el departamento de Historia del Arte de la Universidad de Murcia y responsable del Servicio de Protocolo. Cuando Felipe III, en una visita a la ciudad de Zaragoza en 1599, tuvo ocasión de presenciar una investidura de doctor, ordenó al Rector y doctores no solo que se sentaran sino que se cubrieran con el birrete. Con semejante actitud el rey otorgaba a los doctores el privilegio de estar cubiertos ante él, la misma prerrogativa que poseían los grandes de España. Ya solo queda que me des los guantes blancos y la medalla.

– Esos sí que me gustan. ¿También tienen un significado especial?

– Claro. Los guantes representan la pureza y ecuanimidad en el trabajo y en la escritura. La medalla constituye un distintivo especial como símbolo del servicio a la ciencia. La del Rector es de esmalte blanco sobre oro, con las armas reales en el anverso y un sol radiante, con la cabeza de Apolo, como dios de la luz y protector de las artes, circundado por la leyenda Perfundet omnia luce, en el reverso. La que lleva papi fue autorizada por la Reina Regente María Cristina que autorizó "a los Doctores de todas las Facultades universitarias para el uso de una Medalla como distintivo especial, que será de oro, sin ningún esmalte".

– ¡¡Yo quiero que me regales como colgante un cordón igual que el de tu medalla!!

– Es chulísimo. Fíjate bien. Todos los cordones que llevamos los integrantes del cortejo académico son de seda. Se diferencian en el color. El que yo llevo es del color de mi Facultad.  El de los vicedecanos es de seda con hilo de plata, el de los decanos de seda con hilo de oro, el de los vicerrectores de seda negra con hilo de plata y el del Rector de seda negra con hilo de oro.


"Os vigilamos". Con mi amigo Marcos Egea Gutiérrez-Cortines. Foto: Pedro Cuestas.

– Varias veces has utilizado la expresión "el color de cada facultad". ¿Cuál es es el de la tuya?

– Al igual que un pelotón ciclista, el cortejo académico parece una serpiente multicolor. Los colores que llevan los doctores en los birretes, cordón de la medalla, muceta y puñetas dependen de la facultad de la que procedan. Los doctores en Medicina, como el tito Antonio y la tita Ana, van de color amarillo oro; los de Derecho, como la tía María,  de color rojo; los de Filosofía y Letras (Filosofía, Geografía e Historia, Filología y Ciencias de la Educación), de azul celeste; los de Farmacia, de morado; los de Veterinaria, de verde; los de Psicología, de violeta; los de Ciencias de la Información, de gris azulado; los de Odontología de fucsia; los de Bellas Artes de blanco; los de Ciencias de la Actividad Física y el Deporte, de verde claro; los de Escuelas Técnicas Superiores de Arquitectura e Ingeniería, de marrón; los de Enfermería de gris medio.

– ¿Y los químicos como tú?

– Pues al igual que todos los doctores en Ciencias (Físicos, Geólogos, Matemáticos, Químicos, Biólogos e Informáticos), de azul turquí. Me encanta.

– Te dejo que me lleves al cole porque no tenía ni idea de todo lo que me has contado y he aprendido mucho, pero que sepas que voy a pasar mucha vergüenza cuando te ven mis amigas. Anda ponte los guantes y vámonos.

Норвегия без Нордкапа и местами без солнца 2. Серпантины юга.


Первая часть с общей картой маршрута

Семнадцатая(Helgelandskysten) прикольная, много паромов, одна грусть половина кадра всегда под тучей и с неба вечно что то капает, одна радость держак отличный, асфальт зачетный.
Я понял под какой асфальт делали тот самый неубиваемый скаут который дома в дождь отчаянно скользит, здесь он в самый раз цепляется и медленно точится.
Вечер, домик в кемпинге, кемпинг мы забронировали два парома назад, т.к. подозревали что не успеем до заката, а потом они обычно уходят и можно долго скребтись в пустые домики.
Нас дождались, и мы привычно выпросили самый большой обогреватель, тупо сушится.

К слову в хорошую погоду в местечке Torghatten можно поставить палатку и взять байдарку в прокат, пофоткать гору или погулять вокруг нее.

Вообще по плану следующий день/вечер мы должны были гулять по Тронхейму и дегустировать местные деликатесы, лично я расчитывал на китовый стейк.
Но, на завтра обещали единственный солнечный день и мы ломанулись в сторону атлантической дороги. В честь сухой погоды единственный раз за всю Норвегию растянули палатку на краю свежескошенного поля, дальше как всегда — тушенка, гречка, пиво.

Хутор по норвежски — на собственном острове =)

знаменитые сушки для трески

Солнечное утро, счастье есть!
Атлантическая дорога — это же всего один кривой мост, но пока доедешь можно заехать в рыбацкие деревушки на краю моря и самые глубокие туннели за поездку прямо под дном пролива откровенно впечатляют и опять паромчики.

К вечеру были на дороге Тролей, если вдруг вы были в Альпах, то легкий флер разочарования возможно будет витать на вершине. Но пофиг все равно красиво(заглавная фотка).
Хотели поехать к озеру поставить палатку, но капает сверху, в общем домик.

Туманное утро и прогноз погоды не радует, режем маршрут и отказываемся от парома по Geirangerfjord, едем на смотровую Dalsnibba в надежде на солнце, но там тучи и туман.

Увы едем на Gamle Strynefjellsvegen, там туман в самый раз, как и на Sognefjellet, органично дополняет пейзажи как на Кольском, собственно в этот день мы ездили исключительно среди Кольских пейзажей и это было прекрасно.

На Sognefjellet уходим левее, отказываясь от Gaularfjellet в пользу Aurlandsfjellet, но это уже завтра, а сегодня пора ужинать и спать.

Утро, тучки, Aurlandsfjellet и «пещера медведя» с инсталяцией как летит время пока медведь спит, а дальше очень крутая смотровая Stegastein на туманный фьерд.

Дальше серпантины, водопады, обед в старом доке и к вечеру накатавшись по Hardanger вдоль фьердов мы снова в домике =)

На следующий утро с утра радуга! Но не помогло, к языку Троля, уже хорошо вливало, настолько хорошо, что я радуюсь тунелям ибо там сухо =)
В общем поход наверх в очередной раз отменяется и дальше прогнозы еще хуже, а как то уже хочется солнца и сухости.

Так что финальный круг серпантинов по Ryfylke, но не в сторону Горошины и Кафедры проповедника, а в сторону Швеции и на этом можно сказать что все самое вкусное заканчивается.

Следующий день просто гонка на восток, из забавного Теслы встречаются все чаще и чаще, в Осло даже Тесла-такси уже норма жизни.

Прямо перед границей со Швецией погода начала налаживаться, поэтому недолго думая растянули палатку прямо с сосновом лесу. Утром в соседних кустах нашли эхо войны.

Суровые финские скровечники =)

Собственно дальше погода була солнечной и теплой, зависли на Аланских островах на пару дней — грелись и наслаждались запахом сосен и видом на море, заодно окончательно высохли.

Еще была прикольная дорога по островкам в Финляндию и ночевка в лесу на подступах к Хельсинки и домой.

Отлично сьездили, но стопудов придется вернутся, т.к. трекинги не сделаны и кусок маршрута пропущен. Да и к тому же там еще есть дороги не включенные в первый маршрут, есть где развернутся, осталось найти время =)
