Hond is goed tegen eenzaamheid

Hond is goed tegen eenzaamheid Andre Heuzer wo, 11/06/2019 - 14:11

Bleek uit recent onderzoek nog dat mensen met een hond langer leven, vooral na een hartaanval, uit net weer wat nieuwer Australisch onderzoek blijkt nu dat het hebben van een hond je eenzaamheid vermindert. Ook werden mensen die een hond aanschaften minder snel geplaagd door negatieve gevoelens.

De PAWS-studie is een door Australië gecontroleerd langetermijnonderzoek naar hondenbezit en geestelijk welzijn in de gemeenschap, dat recent is gepubliceerd in BMC Public Health. Gedurende acht maanden werden 71 mensen in sydney gevolgd voor dit onderzoek. In die periode werd gekeken naar het mentale welzijn van de proefpersonen, waarbij vooral het welzijn van de hondenbezitters werd afgezet tegenover mensen die van plan waren een hond te verwerven (maar dat afhielden tijdens de studieperiode van acht maanden) en diegenen die niet van plan waren een hond te nemen.

De onderzoekers van het Charles Perkins Center van de Universiteit en RSPCA NSW ontdekten dat nieuwe hondenbezitters binnen drie maanden na de komst van de hond zelf minder eenzaamheid meldden, een  effect dat aan minimaal tot het einde van het onderzoek bleef.

Ze vonden ook bewijs dat nieuwe hondeneigenaren minder negatieve stemmingen, zoals boos of bang zijn. Maar ze zagen geen invloed op psychische nood, waaronder de symptomen die verband houden met depressie en angst.

"Uit eerder onderzoek is gebleken dat interacties van mens op hond voordelen kunnen hebben in situaties zoals verpleeghuizen die therapiehonden gebruiken, maar er is heel weinig onderzoek naar de impact voor dagelijkse hondeneigenaren die thuis communiceren met hun hond," zei Powell, een van de onderzoekers. “Hoewel we niet precies kunnen vaststellen hoe hondenbezit de stemming en eenzaamheid bij onze deelnemers positief heeft beïnvloed, hebben veel mensen in het onderzoek gemeld dat ze anderen in hun buurt hebben leren kennen vanwege hun nieuwe hond. We weten ook dat kortetermijninteracties met honden het humeur verbeteren, dus het kan zijn dat het regelmatig optreden van deze interacties door het hondenbezit tot verbeteringen op de lange termijn heeft geleid."

Volgens hoofdauteur Professor Emmanuel Stamatakis is het zo dat in de drukke wereld van vandaag veel mensen het gevoel van gemeenschap verloren hebben en het sociale isolement toeneemt. "Als honden mensen kunnen helpen meer buiten te komen en andere mensen te ontmoeten, is dit een win-win. Dit is vooral belangrijk op oudere leeftijd, wanneer er een verhoogd risico is op isolatie en eenzaamheid. Het is een belangrijke risicofactor voor hart- en vaatziekten, het is een belangrijke risicofactor voor kanker en het is een belangrijke risicofactor voor depressie. ”

De onderzoekers erkennen dat verdere grootschalige onderzoeken met meer mensen nodig zijn om de complexiteit van de relatie tussen hondenbezit en menselijke geestelijke gezondheid te onderzoeken.  "Dit is een nieuw en opkomend onderzoeksgebied, vooral omdat de relatie van iedereen met hun hond zo anders is, het vinden van een manier om dat te beoordelen en daarmee rekening te houden is de helft van de uitdaging."

Los cinco mejores momentos de las 100 primeras carreras de Carlos Sainz en la Fórmula 1

Solo tiene 25 años y Carlos Sainz ya ha disputado 100 carreras de Fórmula 1. El piloto español no solo se va convirtiendo en un veterano de la categoría, sino que además es ya de pleno derecho uno de los pilotos más reputados. Sainz está viviendo en 2019 la que posiblemente sea su mejor temporada en la Fórmula 1, la de su consolidación.

En estas 100 carreras que abarcan cinco años Sainz ha vivido muchos momentos clave, cambios de equipos, puntos altos y bajos en los que su carrera como piloto de Fórmula 1 ha experimentado cambios drásticos. Estos son los cinco mejores momentos de Carlos Sainz desde que es piloto de Fórmula 1.

El debut con puntos en Australia 2015

Sainz Australia F1 2015

Muchos pronosticaban que la aventura de Carlos Sainz en la Fórmula 1 no iba a durar demasiado. Los más agoreros pronosticaban que el español sería destrozado por su compañero de equipo en Toro Rosso, el también novato Max Verstappen, que lógicamente también cumple ahora 100 carreras. Sin embargo Sainz demostró desde Australia que era un piloto de categoría.

En una clasificación alucinante consiguió meterse en la séptima posición de la parrilla, mientras que Verstappen quedó eliminado en la Q2. Luego en carrera, Sainz resistió en la zona de puntos, terminando noveno, mientras que su compañero abandonó por problemas mecánicos. En solo una carrera Sainz demostró que estaba en la Fórmula 1 para quedarse.

Aguantando a los Ferrari en España 2016

Sainz Espana F1 2016

Aquella carrera en Montmeló fue la primera en la que Verstappen corrió con Red Bull. Sainz cambiaba de compañero, ahora tenía a Daniil Kvyat, y, como cada vez que hay movimiento, la reacción del español fue la mejor. Clasificó octavo, y en una salida antológica se puso tercero, adelantando a los Ferrari y aprovechando el accidente de los Mercedes.

Durante siete vueltas Sainz mantuvo un inédito triplete de Red Bull en las tres primeras posiciones y, sobre todo, consiguió retener lo suficiente a los Ferrari para que Verstappen se marchase en busca de la que fue su primera victoria en la Fórmula 1. Sainz al final acabó sexto, su mejor resultado hasta la fecha, pero sobre todo afianzó su posición dentro de Red Bull.

Rozando el podio bajo la lluvia de Singapur 2017

Sainz Singapur F1 2017

Seguramente Carlos Sainz nunca ha estado tan cerca del podio como lo estuvo en el Gran Premio de Singapur de 2017, todavía con Toro Rosso. La lluvia puso patas arriba la carrera, con los dos Ferrari, Verstappen y Fernando Alonso estrellándose en la salida. Sainz, que salía décimo, consiguió abrirse paso hasta la cuarta plaza, pero ahí se quedó.

Las últimas vueltas fueron un suplicio esperando un fallo de alguno de los líderes, pero éste no se produjo y Sainz se quedó sin podio. Aún así, ese cuarto puesto es el mejor resultado que ha obtenido el piloto madrileño hasta la fecha en Fórmula 1. Este mismo 2019 tuvo una oportunidad similar en Hockenheim, pero acabó quinto.

Debut glorioso con Renault en Estados Unidos 2017

Sainz Austin F1 2017

Poco después de aquella carrera en Singapur la temporada 2017 le deparó a Carlos Sainz el ansiado cambio de equipo. Dejó Toro Rosso para fichar por una gran fábrica como Renault. Y el estreno no pudo ser mejor. Sainz volvió a sacar toda su velocidad a una vuelta para meterse séptimo en parrilla, mientras que su nuevo compañero, Nico Hulkenberg, cayó en la Q1.

Luego en carrera Sainz mantuvo la posición hasta la línea de meta, con un adelantamiento espectacular sobre Sergio Pérez incluido. El piloto español comenzaba su andadura con Renault de la mejor manera posible, aunque luego la aventura terminó antes de lo previsto por el fichaje de Daniel Ricciardo por la casa francesa.

La remontada invisible en Austria 2019

Sainz Austria F1 2019

Si una está siendo la baza de Carlos Sainz en esta temporada 2019 esa es la regularidad. El piloto madrileño no está destacando a base de actuaciones espectaculares, sino que cosecha resultados de forma constante, sin estridencias. Sin embargo en Austria le tocó remangarse para remontar desde la última posición por una penalización al cambiar el motor.

Mientras la televisión enfocaba a otros corredores, Sainz fue dando cuenta de más de media parrilla para pasar desde la última hasta la octava posición. Y eso que el español dañó su alerón delantero en uno de los últimos adelantamientos, lo que ya le impidió ir a por una sexta plaza que también estaba a tiro.

Sainz podría ser ya el segundo mejor español de la historia de la Fórmula 1

De La Rosa Mclaren F1 2005

Estas 100 carreras de Carlos Sainz sirven para preguntarse si el piloto madrileño es ya el segundo mejor español de la historia de la Fórmula 1, por detrás, evidentemente, de Fernando Alonso. En su contra juega que todavía no ha conseguido ningún podio, algo que sí hicieron Pedro de la Rosa y Alfonso de Portago.

De hecho Carlos Sainz ya es el quinto piloto de la historia que más carreras de Fórmula 1 ha disputado sin subirse al podio. Delante de él solo tiene a Philippe Alliot, con 109, a Pierluigi Martini, con 118, a Adrian Sutil, con 128, y a Nico Hulkenberg, que lleva 175 carreras sin probar el champagne, y contando.

Alfonso De Portago Francia F1 1956

Sin embargo en favor de Sainz cuenta la longevidad y regularidad de su trayectoria. Además de Alonso, entre los españoles solo Pedro de la Rosa ha disputado más carreras de Fórmula 1 que Sainz. El catalán tomó la salida en 105 eventos, por lo que será superado pronto por el actual piloto de McLaren.

Además, De la Rosa solo estuvo en el top diez de una carrera en 19 ocasiones, mientras que Carlos Sainz ya lleva 51. En cuanto al marqués de Portago, es cierto que fue una estrella en ciernes de la Fórmula 1, debutando con tan solo 28 años con Ferrari. Pero un accidente mortal impidió que desarrollase su carrera, dejando su palmarés en un podio, un quinto puesto y tres abandonos.

Este hombre diseñó el test para renovar el carnet de conducir: "Desde el principio fue un éxito total"

Este hombre diseñó el test para renovar el carnet de conducir:

Cualquiera que se haya sacado el carné de conducir -o haya ido a renovarlo- en España en los últimos treinta años ha tenido en sus manos una de las máquinas que usan los centros de reconocimiento médico para el test psicotécnico. Uno de esos instrumentos sacados de otra época con un monitor, un par de botones y otro par de palancas con el que supuestamente demostramos que, a priori, estamos aceptables para conducir una máquina de dos toneladas.

Llevan ahí años, lustros, décadas. El avance tecnológico no parece tener apenas impacto en estas máquinas en un blanco roto tan noventavo como icónico y vetusto. ¿Quién las puso ahí? ¿Quién las inventó? Ambas preguntan responden al mismo hombre, el de un murciano de Totana que a los 22 años decidió cambiar por completo estos tests psicotécnicos: Fernando Ortiz. Su efecto perdura hasta hoy.

Test psicotécnico electrónico y TV en color para ver el Mundial '82

Fernando Ortiz Small

Año 1982. El Renault 9 arrasa en ventas, Quini vuelve a ser pichichi y el Mundial de España está a punto de empezar. En ese contexto, Fernando Ortiz, estudiante de Ingeniería de Telecomunicación en Madrid que acaba de cumplir 22 años, observa que los equipos usados para los tests psicotécnicos eran electromecánicos. Muy costosos y gigantescos: un solo equipo, con sus poleas y motores, podía ocupar cincuenta metros cuadrados y costaba unos 15 millones de pesetas de la época, equivalentes en 2018 a unos 370.000 euros si ajustamos por inflación.

La mayoría de fabricantes de esos equipos eran franceses. La idea de Fernando, avezado en conocimiento tecnológico por su formación, es pasar ese sistema a un ordenador. Comienza a desarrollarlo en un Dragon 32, un ordenador de fabricación española que se ensamblaba en Extremadura. Un microprocesador y una pantalla de vídeo conectada. No había más.

"En un principio quise hacerlo mecánicamente, pero fue un fracaso, así que acabé desarrollando un sistema totalmente electrónico. Yo era el inventor, el socio industrial, y me junté con un socio inversor que creyó en el tema y nos lanzamos a la aventura. Al final acabé creando mi propia empresa con la ayuda de mi padre", recuerda Fernando.

Que aquel instrumento tuviese una pantalla a color que también servía para ver la televisión fue todo un inesperado reclamo de ventas en vísperas del Mundial de España '82, por si el hecho de que fuese un equipo mucho más pequeño y barato (entre un millón y un millón y medio de pesetas) que los habituales no era suficiente.

Con todo, su invento fue teniendo un gran éxito comercial. "Había tal flujo de caja que se podía poner un anuncio en la portada de El País durante todo un fin de semana. Eso costaba un millón de pesetas. Pero si nos servía para vender cuarenta equipos, imagina lo rentable que nos salía", recuerda Fernando, que hoy tiene 58 años. "Desde el principio fue un éxito total".

"Esto sirve para jugar a matar marcianitos, pero no puede ser seguro"

"Como estamos en el país de los que copian lo que pueden", prosigue Fernando, "llegaron a aparecer veintidós casas que copiaron la idea. Con Amstrad, con Spectrum, con Amiga... Una legión de ordenadores de 8 bits que replicaban nuestro planteamiento. En cada ciudad había alguien que cogía un ordenador, se hacía un programa y ya está. Con eso era suficiente para decir 'ya tengo mi test psicotécnico'".

En esa época donde las comunicaciones iban cuatro marchas por debajo de lo actual, ciertos poderes y grupos tardaron en ver este fenómeno, pero lo acabaron viendo. "Se empezó a decir que eso era un escándalo. Que qué broma era eso, que no era seguro, que solo valía para matar marcianitos". El caso es que acabó interviniendo la DGT, el Colegio de Psicólogos y la propia Administración, que legislaron los requisitos que debían reunir este tipo de instrumentos. Empezaron a pedirse homologaciones y calibraciones del Instituto Nacional de Metrología, así como estudios psicométricos que avalaran la validez de esos tests. "Estaba claro que si cualquiera podía hacerse un programa para evaluar conductores no podía ser muy seguro", sentencia Ortiz.

La época de vacío legal (que Fernando llama "todo el mundo campando a sus anchas") duró cinco años, hasta 1987, cuando se publicó el Real Decreto del Ministerio del Interior sobre la comisión de normalización de equipos. Una comisión formada por miembros del Colegio de Psicólogos de Madrid y de la DGT. Se publicaron las normas para evaluar los instrumentos de medición de aptitud de conductores. "Había que certificar baremos, muestras estadísticas, demostrar que los resultados no eran manipulables ni falseables...".

De las veintidós empresas que llegaron a coexistir en el gremio, únicamente seis quedaron en pie tras el filtro gubernamental. De esas seis, solo tres llegaron al final. Una de ellas, la granadina AMI-Test, tuvo que cerrar muy poco después. Las otras dos eran la de Fernando Ortiz, LNDETER, y la valenciana General ASDE. De ellos dice Fernando que "llegaron después, pero fueron más astutos, mejores comerciales. Vendieron más que nosotros, aunque con el tiempo eso se revirtió porque el nuestro tenía mayor calidad".

Granada Equipo de la granadina AMI-Test. Fue uno de los que llegó a homologar, pero la empresa cerró poco después. La causa principal, el alto coste que suponía el hecho de que vendían un mueble completo en lugar de la máquina, algo que disparaba los costes y la complejidad del montaje, que requería de dos técnicos. No tuvieron éxito comercial. Imagen cedida por Fernando Ortiz.

Con un mueble ya premontado se aseguraba que el sujeto que hacía el examen estaba a la distancia adecuada de la pantalla. Un concepto que encarecía el producto. La alternativa era dar unas condiciones de administración en las que cada centro de reconocimiento se responsabilizaba de cumplir, algo que permitía ofrecer productos más económicos. Imagen cedida por Fernando Ortiz.

Valencia Equipo de la valenciana General ASDE. Imagen cedida por Fernando Ortiz.

Ambos, valencianos y madrileños, fueron los que construyeron los equipos que llevan treinta años en funcionamiento. En el caso del inventor original, el modelo LND-100 de la empresa L.N. DETER S.A, familiar para cualquier profesional de la psicología. En el de los valencianos, Driver-Test. A finales de los ochenta y principios de los noventa una resolución de pantalla habitual en los ordenadores domésticos y corporativos era todavía inferior a los 640 x 480 píxeles que se popularizaron poco después. La pantalla que usaban los LND-100 era de 3000 x 2000 píxeles. "En esa época, esas pantallas solo las usaban para radares en INDRA".

El origen del extraño nombre de la empresa, LNDETER, es una anécdota de sus inicios, cuando el dinero era muy limitado: en un principio, el nombre iba a ser Indetec (Investigación y desarrollos técnicos), pero cuando fueron a registrarlo vieron que ya lo estaba. El problema era que las tarjetas de visita también estaban ya hechas. Así que vieron que el logo, por su tipografía, también podía entenderse cambiando ciertos caracteres... y así pasó de Indetec a Lndeter.

Demasiado longevos

"Nuestro fracaso comercial es que hay equipos que llevan treinta años usándose y siguen funcionando como el primer día", dice Fernando entre risas. "Aquí, de obsolescencia programada, nada". Hoy, su empresa exporta equipos como el LND-100 a Argentina, Chile, Portugal, Colombia, Polonia, Australia...

Lnd 100 Equipo LND-100.

Su bajo precio y reducido tamaño contribuyó, según Fernando, a que se creara empleo a través de los numerosos centros de reconocimiento médico que se fueron abriendo desde su llegada al mercado.

Hoy, L.N. DETER trabaja con detección emocional y de patologías a través de la voz, así como planeando una posible revisión del test de armas, dado que el actual está "obsoleto" según Ortiz. Para ello trabaja con la Universitat de València y la de La Laguna, de Tenerife. "Estamos esperando a ver si cambia la ley en Estados Unidos y la NRA pone tests para evitar que las armas caigan en ciertas manos. Sería fantástico".

Cali Australian Shepherd Adult Female (American Listed)

 Cache   
Cali is seeking a Florida adopter so she can go on transport! She is currently located in Anniston, AL. Cali is 2-3yrs old, 30-35 pounds, and a adorable girl who craves human attention. She will need a home with a fenced back yard and plenty of activity. At this time she would do best in a home with either a mellow dog or no other dog as she is fearful of the ones that want to be all up in her face, which can translate to snapping out of fear. She would do best with older children as she does like to jump on people to get attention. Cali is crate trained, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, micro chipped and heart worm-free.

          

Truman Australian Shepherd Senior Male (American Listed)

 Cache   
Truman is in need of a medical foster. He's currently being fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County).Truman has a truly sad story. He was a chain dog most of his life, and was found at an abandoned home. When we rescued him he was grossly underweight and so matted he had to have a medical shave. He has such a precious personality, it is almost magical. He acts like there is nothing wrong and he has probably accepted his past lot in life with joy. He wags his tail all the time. He really doesn't know sit or down, he does come when called. He is low energy, meanders around the house and the yard. He has had all his shots, and when he was stable we neutered him. A few things we found out: he is heart worm positive and needs treatment. That is priority now. He also has bilateral ACL issues. He could possibly benefit from an orthopedic surgery but the heart worm treatment needs to be done 1st. He is currently on a medication called Galliprant, which is like Rimadyl, and it works for him.

Hi, I'm Yana! I'm lovely, social, snuggly and unfortunately generally anxious. Because of my anxiety a household with children under the age of 14, is probably not the right fit for a Black dot dog like me. Speaking of homes; I'm much more likely to thrive in a single-family home as opposed to an apartment or condo because I have lots of energy to spare! I'm usually interested in other dogs and would be happy to meet any you have at home to see if we can be best friends! I love attention and prefer being petted over toys and even tasty treats! Won't you give a pretty little cuddle bug like myself the loving home of my dreams?

Short jogs could improve health and longevity

 Cache   

"Small doses" of running could lead to substantial improvements in health and longevity, researchers report today.

An observational study, published online in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that even running at speeds under 6mph (8kph) once a week – or less – for under 50 minutes each time were associated with significant health and longevity benefits.

The Australian researchers found 14 suitable studies that examined the association between running/jogging and the risk of death from all causes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Together, the studies involved 232,149 people, whose health had been tracked for between 5.5 and 35 years.

After pooling the study data, they found that any amount of running was associated with a 27% lower risk of death from all causes for both sexes, compared with no running. It was also associated with a 30% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and a 23% lower risk of death from cancer.

The results suggest that running for 25 minutes less than the recommended weekly duration of vigorous physical activity could reduce the risk of death, making running a potentially good option for people who lack the time to do enough exercise, say the researchers.

They also found that increasing the amount of running was not associated with a further lowering of the risk of death from any cause, according to the research team led by Professor Zeljko Pediscic of the Institute for Health and Sport, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.

While it is an observational study, that cannot establish cause, the researchers say that any amount of running is better than none.

“Increased rates of participation in running, regardless of its dose, would probably lead to substantial improvements in population health and longevity,” they write.

Celia, 1989 - ★★★★

 Cache   

It Is Happening Again: Hooptober 6 (Haunting: 36)

Country 10/6: USA, Canada, Spain, New Zealand, Germany, Brazil, Poland, Mexico, Japan, Australia
Women Directed Films: 5/2

With this film, I've completed Hooptober just in time! Might throw in another horror or two, but the list (that I slightly bloated after starting) is all done.

My expectations weren't set right at all, so I'll start by helping yours. Celia is quite similar to a Ken Loach, social realism type film. There are a few monsters (in the way something like Pan's Labyrinth will use a child's imagination to insert otherworldly events), but it's that same stripped down style and straightforward narrative about the cruelties of life. As a 9 year old, the titular Celia just wants to be friends with the nice neighbors and have a cute rabbit pet. She doesn't understand why those same people are being persecuted for associating with the communist party, or the repercussions of the rabbit plague in Australia. She's a kid; she's basically powerless in the face of what happens around her.

It takes a little time to get going, but once it does, this holds it own up against Loach himself. Ann Turner shows so much promise here; it's a shame she didn't make much else. Once I managed to settle in with the movie, I found it full of with emotional resonance. Much of that comes from Rebecca Smart, who makes Celia adorable, nearing some of the greatest child performances. Her character is such a sweet girl, though one who, in a fit of desperation to regain some control over her environment, makes dolls to attempt a ritual to kill her father and the other oppressive figures in her life. This movie really isn't afraid to get dark and upsetting, because the world is harsh and often doesn't care enough about children to understand them.

The filmmaking and visuals are never flashy, but the writing and performances make it worthwhile. Characters are quite three dimensional -- case in point, I really wanted to just hate the father for being terrible, and he definitely is, yet the movie would keep going "wait, he's still a person, not a monster!" and giving him moments of decency. Come to think of it, although Loach has thrown slightly sucker punches to my emotions, this movie is probably more nuanced than the two I've seen by him (Kes and Family Life).

This is very much worth seeing and should at least have more than its current sub-600 watch count.


          

Ksubi Taps Street Artist Hidji for "The Seven Deadly Sins" Collection

 Cache   

After partnering with Travis Scott for a capsule collection in 2017, Australian fashion label Ksubi is teaming up with New York City-based street artist Hidji World for a graphic-heavy collection of hoodies and T-shirts. Shot by AWGE associate Bladi, the accompanying lookbook spotlights the items on models lounging in a luxurious apartment.Entitled "The Seven Deadly Sins," the collection showcases Hidji's artistic interpretation of all seven sins, often seen in a matching setting. For example, showcased among piles of food, a black hoodie with a bold abstract graphic and the phrase "Eat Me" refers to the sin of 'Gluttony.' T-shirts sporting illustrations of hearts and money represent 'Lust' and 'Greed,' respectively, as money floats by from off-camera.Throughout, Ksubi's black-and-white staple pieces are updated with Hidji's distinct designs to portray the "Seven Deadly Sins" in a playful, almost childish way; Hidji's vibrant colorways and a loose, doodle-like style lend serious topics such as wrath, envy and pride a lighthearted touch.To celebrate the launch, Hidji is developing an art installation at Ksubi's New York store location which will be unveiled on November 21. On that same day, the entire Hidji x Ksubi collection will be available to purchase at Ksubi's global flagship stores and select retailers.Elsewhere, Helmut Lang recruited artist Marc Hundley for a collection of limited-edition, hand-stenciled pieces.

Bookmakers, like insurance underwriters, make their profit from risk by estimating the probability of an event occurring. This is reflected through the bookmaker’s odds and the rates charged by underwriters. The traditional method of managing a balanced book has been as much an art as a science combining deep research, risk parameters, instinct and psychological management, which is gradually changing by taking advantage of emerging technologies.

Toyota teases hot GR Yaris Prototype with rally heritage

 Cache   
Japanese firm set to reveal new high performance concept at World Rally Championship season-finale in Australia

Toyota is set to reveal a new hot GR Yaris Prototype – set to be a rally-derived version featuring four-wheel-drive – next month.

The machine, which will effectively succeed the previous generation’s limited-run Yaris GRMN as the range-topping version of the small hatch, has been teased with a single image released by Toyota on social media. In the post, Toyota said it would be revealed as part of the final Wedding Bells stage of Rally Australia, the World Rally Championship season-finale in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales on 17 November.

The image refers to the car as the GR-4, hinting that it will be offered with four-wheel-drive. That would bring it in line with the Yaris WRC that the firm has run in the top level of world rallying since 2017. It is possible the new car will serve as a ‘homologation special’, forming the basis for the next-generation Yaris WRC.

Feature: tracing the 2019 Rally GB route in a Yaris GRMN

The image shows the rear of the machine, with styling that's familiar from the existing Yaris, but with the addition of far wider rear wheel arches to fit the car’s likely high performance brief. In a further nod to the car’s likely performance intent it sports the camouflage livery used by most recent hot Toyota models of recent years, including the recently revived Supra.

At the launch of the revamped Yaris recently, Toyota’s executive vice-president, Matt Harrison, told Autocar that a performance version of the model would likely be launched to strengthen the link between Toyota’s road cars and its Gazoo Racing motorsport arm.

Toyota has applied various levels of branding under the Gazoo Racing theme in order to develop a model structure for its high-performance models. These include the hardcore limited-run GRMN versions that are positioned above models that carry the GR badge, which represents an ‘authentic sports model’. The firm also offers a GR Sport trim level that offers a more aggressive look while retaining an unchanged mechanical package.

Toyota secured the 2018 World Rally Championship manufacturers’ title with the Yaris WRC, with Ott Tanak claiming this year’s driver’s title.

Why the World Rally Championship is back to its best

 Cache   
Tanak racing
Tanak's second place in Spain secured the title
Estonian hotshot Ott Tänak becoming world champion is only one story from a fascinating season

The World Rally Championship has always been viscerally gladiatorial. Despite the technology and marketing gloss that’s always a feature of the top level, it’s about as raw and unreconstructed as modern motorsport is allowed to get.

This season – although it’s not actually over yet, with one round to go in Australia – has been a perfect example. From the beginning, there was a close three-way fight for the title, creating a tension that boiled over into technical protests (where rival teams tried to get a Toyota rear wing banned), gamesmanship (where Hyundai was accused of manipulating the running order of its cars to disadvantage rivals) and even personal acrimony (with an astonishingly incendiary tweet sent by Sébastien Ogier’s wife during the Rally of Spain, where she coined the hashtag ‘#shitroen’ and blasted her husband’s employer. We’ve not heard the last of this.).

Amid all of that, it was almost easy to overlook the fact that for the first time in 16 years, we’ve got a new World Rally Champion who isn’t French or called Sébastien. Loeb and Ogier have dominated the show for the best part of two decades but, after Spain, Ogier (maybe in an attempt to smooth over troubled waters) said he could think of nobody who deserved the title more this year than the man who finished second on the rally.

The tiny nation of Estonia (population around 1,350,000) now has a new world champion in Ott Tänak. Previously, Estonia was perhaps best known for its exploits in fencing, with 17 world championship medals – although the very first Olympic gold won by Estonia after its independence in 1991 was in cycling. So wheels are obviously important over there, as well as fighting.

Tänak isn’t the first rally star from Estonia, either, as his mentor, Markko Märtin, also competed at the top level. Like Märtin, Tänak is a hard chap to read. He’s competitive to the point of paranoia – having even accused his own team of not backing him fully – but his emotions are rarely expressed via the established medium of verbal communication.

Maybe it’s different when he’s speaking in his native language (unfathomably complex Estonian, with its 28 native diphthongs)? No, confirms Märtin. He’s just as taciturn then.

Although he’s not going to win any public speaking contests, Tänak can drive a car mind-bendingly quickly. This year, he’s racked up six wins from 13 rallies held to date, on gravel, snow and asphalt. Even on the events he didn’t win, he was often the fastest. On the iconic Rallye Monte-Carlo, he won seven of the 15 stages run (including six in a row). And finished third.

Did he have the best car? Probably. So it’s a credit to Hyundai’s Thierry Neuville and Citroën’s Ogier that they pushed him so far. M-Sport Ford – which won the last two drivers’ titles with Ogier – hasn’t been at the races this year, due to a lack of both funding and luck, with Elfyn Evans forced to sit out three rallies following a back injury. Whether it’s on or off the stages, everyone eventually feels some pain on the WRC. That’s why we love it.

La PAC medioambiental, uno de los retos pendientes de la nueva Comisión

 Cache   
El pasado 1 de noviembre debería haber empezado a funcionar el nuevo Colegio de Comisarios de la Unión Europea (UE) presidido por la alemana Ursula von der Leyen, aunque el retraso en el visto bueno a tres de los integrantes seleccionados impidió al equipo al completo someterse al voto final de la Eurocámara, lo que va a demorar algo los plazos, como mínimo hasta el próximo 1 de diciembre. En cualquier caso, una vez tomen asiento en sus despachos los nuevos mandatarios de Bruselas, una de sus prioridades será resolver la reforma pendiente de la Política Agrícola Común (PAC), para la que se presentó una primera propuesta formal en junio de 2018 pero sobre la que poco se ha avanzado hasta entonces. La principal clave de ese retraso acumulado reside en la falta de acuerdo de los líderes europeos para establecer el marco financiero plurianual (MFF) de la Unión de cara al período 2021-2027, esto es, saber con cuánto dinero se contará en las arcas comunitarias en función de las aportaciones que deban hacer los Estados miembros y de qué manera se repartirán esos fondos, priorizando unas materias sobre otras. El pasado día 18, los jefes de Estado y de Gobierno de los Veintiocho –Reino Unido aún tiene derecho a participar en los debates– vinieron a certificar en su última cumbre que será prácticamente imposible alcanzar un acuerdo al respecto antes de finales de año. Se incumplirá así la previsión oficial porque, según admitió Jean-Claude Juncker en su última gran cita al frente de la Comisión Europea (CE), «no hay nuevos elementos, no hay directrices, nada…». Lo único claro que salió de aquel encuentro es la solicitud a Finlandia, que ejerce la presidencia de turno de la UE en el segundo semestre, para que prepare «un marco de negociación con cifras» de cara a la cumbre de diciembre. Su primera propuesta, rechazada hace una semana, era contar con un presupuesto equivalente a una horquilla de entre el 1,03% y el 1,08% del Producto Interior Bruto (PIB) europeo, lo que resultaría en unos 1,10 billones de euros. Eso supondría unos 35.000 millones menos que las cuentas planteadas hace un año para el próximo MFF desde la propia Comisión –que planteaba aproximarse al 1,13% del PIB–, cuya estimación de gasto ascendía a 1,135 billones e incluía recortes del 5% para los fondos agrícolas y del 7% para los fondos regionales. Sobre la mesa han vuelto a aparecer de nuevo las diferencias históricas entre el sur, donde parece haber consenso entre Francia, España y otros países para que no se reduzcan las aportaciones a la PAC, y el norte, en el que Alemania, los Países Bajos y los territorios nórdicos han hecho piña para no elevar sus aportaciones y, en todo caso, reducir las asignaciones a políticas tradicionales como la agraria. Con el plan de reforma de la política agrícola común presentado por el comisario saliente, el irlandés Phil Hogan –a quien relevará el polaco Janusz Wojciechowski–, España recibiría un 5,4% menos de fondos en esta materia, algo que el Ejecutivo de Pedro Sánchez estima «inaceptable» al rechazar recortes en términos nominales. El planteamiento que el ministro del ramo, Luis Planas, ha hecho llegar a sus colegas europeos es que la PAC debe mantener, al menos, su financiación actual pese a la salida del Reino Unido; de lo contrario, no se podrá modernizar el sector para hacerlo más competitivo frente a mercados como China, Australia y Nueva Zelanda, además de Estados Unidos, y también resultará más difícil combatir la despoblación rural. España, segunda en el reparto España fue el segundo Estado de la UE más beneficiado por los fondos de la PAC en 2018, según datos de Bruselas, con 6.300,5 millones de euros recibidos a través del capítulo de «crecimiento sostenible: recursos naturales», casi un 7% más que el ejercicio anterior. No obstante, el Gobierno defiende que éste no es solo un problema de números, sino de prioridades. Sánchez trasladó en la última cumbre al resto de líderes europeos que el valor de instrumentos comunitarios como la política agrícola y los fondos de cohesión «sigue siendo incuestionable», por lo que es preciso encontrar un «equilibrio adecuado» con el refuerzo financiero que se pretende hacer de otras políticas como la innovación, el desarrollo y la investigación (I+D+i), los avances digitales, la formación o la inversión en infraestructuras. Por eso el Ejecutivo español busca el apoyo de otros socios europeos para que la nueva PAC sea vista como un elemento «esencial» para «contribuir eficazmente al doble reto del cambio climático y la seguridad alimentaria». Precisamente a través de esos objetivos medioambientales –la UE está comprometida a alcanzar la neutralidad en emisiones netas en 2050 y, al tiempo, elevar un 80% el consumo de bioenergía para entonces (por ejemplo, aumentando la generación de biomasa desde el sector agrario)–, el Ministerio de Agricultura considera que la PAC podría beneficiarse de ese 25% del presupuesto global europeo entre 2021 y 2027 que se quiere destinar a gastos relacionados con el clima y el medio ambiente, además de un 35% del nuevo programa Horizonte Europa que contaría con hasta 100.000 millones de euros. Esa vinculación dependerá en última instancia del acuerdo político de los líderes europeos sobre el nuevo MFF. Mientras, los ministros de Agricultura tratan de avanzar en cuestiones técnicas como la simplificación del contenido del denominado Informe Anual de Rendimiento, que cada Estado debe mandar a Bruselas anualmente antes del 15 de febrero y en el que España propone aumentar la tolerancia entre las metas planificadas y las logradas. También ha planteado establecer márgenes de tolerancia en la llamada Liquidación de Rendimiento, en concreto entre los importes medios planificados y los ejecutados respecto a las intervenciones de fondos de la PAC no vinculados a superficies agrícolas ni a animales, esto es, dirigidos a desarrollo rural.

Aussies order Sportsbet to pay out on controversial AFL wagers

 Cache   

Australian operator Sportsbet is being held responsible for a large number of wagers it had cancelled after claiming the odds were posted erroneously. It’s a rare example of an operator of any kind being held to account for wagers cancelled under terms like, “obvious or manifest errors”. The imbroglio over the cancelled wagers started when Sportsbet posted an Australian Football League (AFL) proposition bet that punters couldn’t refuse. The question was whether any AFL player would have more than 40 disposal penalties during the tenth round of the 2019 season. Since almost no players have had that many disposal penalties … Continue reading

Mit 10 (20) milionowej Polonii

 Cache   
Ilustracja: 
Wiki: Ocenia się, że poza Polską żyje 18-20 milionów Polaków i osób polskiego pochodzenia. Jedna trzecia z tej grupy to Polacy urodzeni i ukształtowani w Polsce, reszta to osoby polskiego pochodzenia o różnym stopniu więzi z polskością. Polonia i Polacy za granicą plasują się na szóstym miejscu w świecie pod względem liczebności w stosunku do ludności kraju ojczystego.**PolskieRadio.com: W całych Stanach Zjednoczonych w głosowaniu [do Sejmu 2019] wzięło udział 29,5 tysiąca osób, czyli o 5 tysięcy więcej niż w poprzednich wyborach parlamentarnych.Zawieśmy tu kwestię czy Polacy nie mieszkający na ziemiach wokół Wisły i nie płacący państwu polskiemu podatków mają prawo w takich wyborach głosować, elektoralnie decydować. Ale nawet gdybyśmy uznali ten "protest wyborczy", to w bieżącej przed-"protestowej" sytuacji liczba 30 tys. głosujących Polaków w USA (300 tys. w 90 krajach) jest przerażająca jeśli chodzi o pieśń o odpływie polskich genów.**Tekst publikowany w polskiej blogosferze w 2009. Wszedł do książki Do Wyoming (2013):Nie wierzę w "podwójne" obywatelstwa. Ludzie jak to ludzie, kombinują jak by tu najłatwiej w życiu. Zwłaszcza kiedy kraj rodzinny im się nienajmiłośniej udał. Więc wielu ma po dwa. Można powiedzieć "żyją w dwóch". Albo przyjmują obywatelstwo kraju nowego bez większych rozterek odrzucając obywatelstwo kraju urodzenia, bo to "praktyczniejsze". Albo, niestety, przyjmują nowe z satysfakcją, bo to taki "lepszy" kraj, np. USA. Albo Anglia. Australia. Nawet, miej Boże litość, Niemcy.Zacząłem pierwszy rok elektroniki na Politechnice Gdańskiej, kiedy ojciec i matka weszli w stan separacji. Wprowadzili dzieciaka na studia, dopiął się potężny cykl, dużo z tego czym wpierali się nawzajem w siebie, zeszło z linii.Ojciec wyprowadził się z domu, wynajął kąt u znajomego robotnika z zakładu, z siennikiem na podłodze. W dzień wypłaty robotnik przynosił do domu pieniądze, kładł na stół. Jeździłem do ojca, paliłem z nim papierosy, kapały łzy, jemu na końcu też. Na dworcu przed moim odjazdem do Gdańska wypijaliśmy po kuflu piwa, on częstował papierosem ze swojej paczki. Tydzień za tygodniem, nie ustępowałem. Po prostu: nie.I co? Po pół roku „zeszlisja”, jak się u nas północno–kresowo melodiowało. I prawdę chyba powiem, były to najzgodniejsze lata ich życia odtąd. Aż do dopełnienia.Sprawa obywatelstwa nie odbiega zasadniczo dla mnie od sprawy monogamicznego małżeństwa. Weźmy dzieci rozwodników. Jakie dziecko chce, żeby obszar dzieciństwa, wrastania w świat i bycia wrastanym, ta karoseria, a i część siłowni jego ja, rozpękły mu się nagle? A do tego pojawili się intruzi. Tak dogłębne formy międzyludzkiego istnienia, małżeństwo, rodzina, najpełniej spełniają nas kiedy są jednotożsame. To był trend rozwojowy już u zarania naszej europejskiej cywilizacji, wzmożony przejęciem i akulturacją silnie monoteistycznej religii. Trend wsparty szczególnymi realiami biologii, tym, że północne klimaty bardziej forowały wysokoinwestycyjny wychówek mniej licznego potomstwa, niż mrówkopłodność. Sukces ewolucyjny przez jakość, nie ilość. A to wiązało się wprost z ewolucyjną monogamizacją rodziny. A potem doszła z zewnątrz wspierająca oryginalną naturalną tendencję i silnie akulturowana religia.Sprawę przynależności wspólnotowej widzę podobnie.W 1989 w Nowym Jorku zbliżał się moment, kiedy po pięciu latach statusu „permanent resident” mogłem wystąpić o obywatelstwo amerykańskie. Odczucie, jakie w związku z tym narastało, nie było spokojne. Było napięcie z tych, jakie, bywa, odczuwa jedno z narzeczonych, lub oboje, w dniach i godzinach przed pójściem do ołtarza. Że może jednak nie do końca dobry wybór. I, bywa, któryś z niedoszłych współmałżonków odpuszcza. Nie ma sakramentu. Ślub odwołany.Podobnie w Nowym Jorku. Czułem napięcie przed życiem odtąd jako obywatel amerykański. Nie wszystko pasowało, choć świadomość nie potrafiła tego dokładnie rozświetlić. Ale słuchając wewnętrznego głosu – mały cichy głos, tak? – do „ołtarza” nie poszedłem. Nowej przysięgi lojalności nie złożyłem. Nawet nie zapoznałem się z jej tekstem. Przeczytałem dopiero parę lat temu, z ciekawości. I prawda, nie byłbym w porządku wobec kraju urodzenia. Wobec siebie. Dziś dodam – wobec mojego naturalnego narodu etnicznego. Więc w 1989 byłem w kontakcie z najgłębszym sobą. Wybrałem dobrze. Mój instynkt, sens tego co jest moim losem, przeprowadziły mnie.W XX wieku w toku liberalizacji szeregu norm moralnych i cywilnych, zliberalizował się także powszechny stosunek do posiadania tzw. wielokrotnego obywatelstwa. A ja mówię, że to odejdzie, spłynie jak cienka woda. Że Polacy, którzy nawet pobrali obce obywatelstwa, nawet zrzekli się w tym celu polskiego, że wielu z nich zacznie odczuwać, że to był tylko szary sen. Że zwłaszcza od lat 1970. wyjazdy z Polski na Zachód nie powinny były łączyć się z opuszczaniem Polski w sensie obywatelskim. Że niedługo czas będzie coraz wyraźniej określał, że to w porządku oddać nowopozyskany status obywatelski, wrócić do "starego", polskiego.To będą Polacy. Reszta się rozmyje. Dobrze, jeśli już, aby wciekli tacy w obszar genetyczny etnosu europejskiego. Bywa gorzej, tysiące lat stylizowanej genetycznej roboty rzuca się na hybrydowy wiatr.**Dyskusja na Twitterze: https://twitter.com/JoannaTeglund/status/1190238200486354945?s=20

What Bush Fires Can Teach Us In the UK

 Cache   

This evening I received an email from Mark, a listener to my radio show. It was in response to the furore about Jacob Rees-Mogg's remarks on Grenfell, which have made headlines today. The LFB's 'stay put' advice has rightly come under scrutiny. There have been 5,000 fires in London since then and on each occasion, that advice was right. At Grenfell it was not. But we had never seen a fire like that before. I post this not to defend Jacob, but it does make you think...

When I lived in Australia, our village was impacted on (technical term) by the 2008 Black Saturday Bushfire in Victoria, Australia. The formal advice was 'stay and defend; people save houses, houses save people."

Almost everyone left. They knew immediately that a fire of that magnitude was not defendable, not survivable.

The very sad thing was those who waited too late died in their cars and those who did stay were boiled alive in their baths or their swimming pools thinking they would give them protection. Folk died two streets up from us. We were lucky, our house was untouched - and it is pure luck.

As with Grenfell, when they realised the standard advice was wrong, the firies (fire fighters) came into our village even as it was being impacted on by what they knew was an out of control extreme fire - and risked their own lives doing so. To get as many people out as they could.

My point is, you hope people have enough initiative to appreciate the advice may be sound for normal fires, but it was very clear very early on we weren't dealing with a 'normal' fire on Black Saturday or in Grenfell. Flats were being impacted on exceptionally, from the outside for goodness sake!

The only caveat I'd add to that is that you have to leave early and the terrible tragedy of the Grenfell advice, as was the case with folk on Black Saturday, is that the official advice caused confusion and made people take too long deciding for themselves.

Just as with Black Saturday, you'd have had to have just got out of Grenfell immediately you knew, without waiting. As many did of course. The irony is people wanted to follow their own common sense but were over-ruled by the Fire Brigade.

I hope that were the same event to occur in another tower block having the same cladding, people would use their initiative and leave immediately.

There is something wrong, too, with towers built with only one way out. The same with villages in Australia. You have to have at least two ways out, otherwise it's a death trap if one route is impacted on or is blocked.  As has been shown unfortunately in Australia far too many times...

The very worst tragedy of all with Grenfell is the advice isn't changing. Perhaps because no-one in authority will admit the advice for extreme, exceptional fires is clearly wrong. I presume for fear of corporate manslaughter charges?  But the firies were themselves understandably sucked into their own advice. We always tend to follow advice. The advice in Australia has changed to 'Be ever vigilant. Have a grab-bag ready. Use common sense but wherever possible leave early'. Why isn't it changing to something similar here?

Yorick van Norden in Amerika

 Cache   
18 augustus 2018

We gaan onder de noemer 'Heaven Presents...' ons sterk maken voor bijzondere artiesten die een groter publiek verdienen. De eerste artiest waarmee wij een bijzondere samenwerking aangaan is Yorick van Norden. In de jongste Heaven kon je alvast lezen over zijn bijzondere nieuwe album The Jester dat op 14 september zal verschijnen bij Excelsior Recordings en de komende maanden zal Yorick met zijn band onder de noemer 'Heaven Presents... Yorick van Norden' door het land reizen. Deze week verscheen zijn nieuwe singleTrain In The Station (beluister hier).

Lees hieronder alvast het eerste deel van het reisverslag dat hij speciaal voor Heaven bijhield tijdens zijn reis naar de Verenigde Staten. Op haar verzoek bezocht hij de ernstig zieke Dawn Tessman Visser (48), die een groot fan is van de Haarlemse musicus.

Maandag 9 juli

Rond het middaguur vertrok ik vanaf Schiphol met een rechtstreekse vlucht van Delta Airlines naar Minneapolis. Om er zeker van te zijn dat ik mijn Martin D-35 gitaar uit 1976 als handbagage mee zou mogen nemen, had ik alvorens mijn vluchten te boeken al het nodige speurwerk verricht. Er bleek een website te zijn van een muzikantenvakbond waarop alle grote internationale luchtvaartmaatschappijen werden gerangschikt op hun beleid ten aanzien van vliegende musici. Sommige maatschappijen kregen een groen stoplicht, anderen een oranje stoplicht, maar verreweg de meesten het rode.

Dankzij het in-flight board entertainment, een gezellige buurvrouw en het naar luchtvaartmaatstaven goede eten en drinken vloog de negen uur durende reis letterlijk voorbij.

De muziekselectie aan boord verdient overigens nog een vermelding. Het aanbod was beperkt, maar zeer opvallend: meerdere liveplaten van Frank Zappa uit de jaren 80 (doe mij maar Zappa's werk uit de jaren zestig en vroege jaren zeventig) en de geweldige Sunshine Tomorrow 2 compilatie van The Beach Boys. Voor de gemiddelde passagier niet de meest voor de hand liggende titels naar het mij leek, geweldig! Om 14:50 uur plaatselijke tijd landde ik in Minneapolis, waarna ik Dawn en John voor het eerst ontmoette. Toen we elkaar enkele dagen eerder hadden gezien en gesproken via Skype had ik er al een heel goed gevoel bij, wat direct werd bevestigd bij onze eerste ontmoeting: wat een ontzettend lieve, warme, hartelijke mensen! We vertrokken naar hun huurhuis in de wijk East-Harriet om mijn spullen weg te brengen, waarna we de rest van middag doorbrachten op een steiger aan het prachtige Lake Harriet. Terwijl we met onze benen in het verfrissende water van het meer bungelden zwom er plots een schildpad voorbij. Eenmaal thuis gekomen ben ik even gaan zitten op de bank die Dawn en John 'the narcoleptic couch' noemen. Ik heb het geweten. Jetlag. Ergens halverwege de nacht werd ik er wakker, waarna ik toch maar naar mijn logeerbed ben geslopen voor het vervolg van de nacht.

Dinsdag 10 juli

Vanmorgen brachten we een bezoek aan Saint-Paul. Saint Paul vormt samen met Minneapolis de tweelingstad Minneapolis-St. Paul. De steden liggen naast elkaar en lopen zelfs in elkaar over.  Ondanks het feit dat Saint Paul slechts 300.000 inwoners telt tegenover de 422.000 inwoners van Minneapolis, is Saint Paul de hoofdstad van de staat Minnesota. In Saint Paul wachtte ons een rondleiding bij Minnesota Public Radio, oftewel MPR. De in 1967 opgerichte publieke staatsomroep huist in een enorm pand in downtown Saint Paul en behelst 46 radiozenders met een totaal bereik van circa 18 miljoen luisteraars per week. De rondleiding bracht ons dan ook langs talloze redactievloeren, archieven, radiostudio’s, een opnamestudio en zelfs een grote theaterzaal. Tijdens onze rondleiding ontmoetten Michael Barone. Dawn heeft ooit als grafisch vormgever voor MPR’s popzender The Current gewerkt en zij vertelde mij dat iedereen altijd een beetje bang was voor Michael, aangezien hij zo’n vakidioot was dat hij vaak weinig op had met ‘small talk’. Michael presenteert het programma Pipe dreams, gespecialiseerd in klassieke orgelmuziek. Toen hij hoorde dat ik uit Nederland kwam lichtten zijn ogen op en ontstond er tegen alle verwachtingen in een ontzettend leuk gesprek. Michael was namelijk jaren eerder een aantal keer in Nederland geweest om beroemde pijporgels te bezoeken in diverse kerken. Haarlem, Alkmaar, Amsterdam; hij was er allemaal geweest. Eigenlijk was Michael een oude hippie met een enorme passie voor klassieke muziek. Hij gaf mij drie cd’s uit zijn Pipe Dreams reeks cadeau en wij rondden onze rondleiding af.

Na een typisch Amerikaans ontbijt met pancakes en Maple Syrup bezochten we de Mississippi. Nooit geweten dat de rivier ook door Saint Paul stroomde. M’n gedachten dwaalden af naar de Mississippi Delta. Ik dacht aan oude blues helden en ik dacht aan Jeff Buckley, die in de rivier zijn noodlot trof.

We vervolgden ons bezoek aan de stad met een kijkje bij het Science Museum of Minnesota, alwaar in de Omniversum-bioscoop de documentaire Dream Big: Engineering Our World was te zien. Een indrukwekkende film over bouwkundige wonderen van over de hele wereld – van de Chinese muur en ’s werelds hoogste wolkenkrabbers tot aan onderwaterrobots en solarwagens.

Er is ook een Omniversum in Den Haag, maar deze heb ik helaas nog nooit bezocht. Ik ben ook nog nooit bij de Zaanse Schans geweest. Zo gaat dat soms wanneer je in de nabijheid woont van iets unieks; je neemt het voor lief.

Na een korte ‘nap’ vertrokken we rond etenstijd naar Minneapolis voor mijn eerste concert op Amerikaanse bodem, in The Aster Café. Zo gewichtig als ik het nu omschrijf beleefde ik het overigens helemaal niet hoor. Maar ik keek er wel ontzettend naar uit.

The Aster Café deed me enigszins denken aan de Waag in Haarlem, een plek waar muziekliefhebbers onder het genot van speciaalbieren en kwaliteitswijnen samenkomen om zittend naar concerten van singer/songwriters te luisteren.

Om niet in de problemen te komen met de autoriteiten was ik slechts aangekondigd als ‘mystery guest’. Hoofdact was Todd Eckart, zowel in verschijning als in klank een soort kruising van Roy Orbison en Chris Isaak. Na een korte soundcheck eenmaal begonnen aan mijn show kwam ik er na één nummer achter dat ik geen seconde had nagedacht over het feit dat ik tussen de nummers door natuurlijk in het Engels mijn verhalen zou moeten vertellen. Op zich niet zo’n probleem, maar wel ietwat onwennig. Ik kan enkele accenten imiteren, van ‘posh English’ tot ‘scouse’ of 'mancunian', maar dat vind ik altijd een beetje nep om als Nederlander te doen. Schotten, Ieren, Australiërs; ze spreken allen een vorm van Engels met een zeer eigen accent. Dus waarom zou ik niet gewoon als een Nederlander mogen klinken? Vinden ze vaak alleen maar sympathiek. Tegelijkertijd stoor ik me altijd aan steenkolenengels. Wat is het leven soms toch moeilijk. Een bekend grapje over de Engelse uitspraak van toenmalig premier Wim Kok dat mijn leraar Engels mij ooit vertelde ging ongeveer als volgt: Kok: ‘Do you fok horses, Mr. Clinton?’ Clinton: ‘Pardon?’ Kok: ‘Yes, paarden!’

Het was een fijn optreden en na afloop dronken John en ik beiden een heerlijke whiskey old fashioned, John's specialiteit. Fijn om whiskey te mogen schrijven, het is één van de zeldzame gevallen waarin ik de Amerikaanse spelwijze rijker vind dan de Engelse.

Woensdag 11 juli

Vanmorgen met Dawn en John een Skype interview gegeven voor de website van De Telegraaf. Vervolgens de auto gepakt om van Minneapolis naar Chicago te rijden. Nadat ik Dawn tijdens onze eerste mailwisselingen had verteld over mijn Amerikaanse familie in Illinois had ze enthousiast geantwoord met de woorden: ‘I LOVE it that you have family in the Chicago area! John and I will take time off of work, and we'll road trip there together! It's less than 7 hours away from us!’. Een mooier voorbeeld van een cultuurverschil tussen Amerikanen en Europeanen kan ik zo makkelijk niet bedenken. Met zeven uur rijden zit je een uur onder Parijs. Dat is voor ons Europeanen toch wel een reis om even goed over na te denken alvorens deze te maken. Maar naar Amerikaanse maatstaven is het een haast onmogelijk grote toevalligheid, dat je zo vlakbij familie hebt wonen.

Ik vond het een geweldig voorstel en keek dan ook enorm uit naar de roadtrip. John besloot de avond van tevoren niet mee te gaan omdat hij helaas te veel werk had liggen om er twee dagen tussenuit te kunnen knijpen. Rijdend door Minnesota viel het me op hoe Europees, haast Nederlands het landschap in deze staat er eigenlijk uitziet.

Ik herinner me nog het verhaal dat 3voor12 ooit publiceerde over Bob Dylan, die bij bezoekjes aan Nederland volgens de legende steevast afreisde naar Groningen omdat de omgeving hem zo deed denken aan Duluth, Minnesota waar hij opgroeide.

Ik dacht na over de migranten die de oversteek naar de Nieuwe Wereld besloten te maken in de hoop op een beter leven en over hoe vele Europeanen besloten moeten hebben om in deze omgeving te gaan wonen, omdat het ze aan thuis deed denken. ’s Avonds zou ik erover lezen en bleek inderdaad dat Minnesota sinds de 19e eeuw vooral werd bevolkt door grote groepen Duitsers, Noren, Zweden en Nederlanders.

Terwijl we vanuit de auto Chicago in de verte zagen opdoemen spookte Sufjan Stevens door mijn hoofd met zijn briljante liedje Chicago van zijn meesterwerk Illinoise.

Omdat het vanaf de rand van de stad nog een uur zou duren om naar ons hotel downtown te rijden besloten we onderweg te stoppen om te eten bij een restaurant met de veelbelovende naam Thai Lagoon. Het eten was zeer smaakvol, maar haalde het toch niet bij persoonlijke favorieten als Bird in Amsterdam of Erawan in Haarlem.

Later  die avond kwamen we aan in The Whitehall Hotel, door Dawn omschreven als een ‘fancy pants hotel, with valet parking’. Er was geen woord van gelogen. Een waanzinnig mooi hotel op een geweldige locatie.

Donderdag 12 juli

Hoewel de bedden van het Whitehall Hotel heerlijk lagen, heb ik toch slecht geslapen. Sinds het verschijnen van het artikel over mijn reis in de Telegraaf werd ik gedurende de hele nacht regelmatig geappt en gebeld door verschillende redacties. Hartstikke leuk natuurlijk en bijzonder onverwacht ook, maar ook wel lastig door het flinke tijdsverschil van zeven uur. Het goede ontbijt in de hotellobby deed gelukkig wonderen en ik merkte daarnaast dat alle opwinding over de reis me ook wel een dosis energie gaf.

Door het geplande bezoek aan Champaign later die dag, hadden we helaas niet de tijd om Chicago uitgebreid te bekijken. Er waren wel musea die ik had willen zien en ook 2120 S. Michigan Avenue, de bekendste locatie van de Chess studio’s en tevens de titel van een Rolling Stones nummer, stond op m’n verlanglijstje.

Wat we nog wel hebben kunnen doen was het maken van een prachtige wandeling door de Magnificent Mile wijk en een bezoek aan Ohio Street Beach aan Lake Michigan. Vanaf deze locatie heb je een prachtig uitzicht op de stad. Uiteraard hebben we ook even een kijkje genomen bij Marina City, een appartementencomplex aan de oever van de Chicago River. Het complex bestaat uit twee torens van elk 179 meter hoog en de onderste 19 verdiepingen zijn parkeerplaatsen.

De torens van Marina City kende ik van de hoesfoto van Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Een iconische plaat en dito staaltje architectuur.

Begin van de middag stapten we in de auto voor de reis naar Champaign-Urbana. Champaign is een universiteitsstad in de Amerikaanse staat Illinois. Mijn oudoom en oudtante Tom en Louisette Zuidema hebben er een groot deel van hun leven doorgebracht en mijn achternichtjes Paquita en Annegien en achterneef Lucho zijn er allen geboren. Oom Tom, zoals we hem altijd noemden, was in 1927 geboren in Haarlem als oudere broer van mijn opa Bert. Na zijn studie Antropologie studeerde hij Spaans in Madrid en verhuisde in 1957 naar Peru. In 1964 publiceerde hij zijn eerste boek, genaamd The Ceque System of Cuzco en ging hij lesgeven in San Cristóbal aan de universiteit van Huamanga. Na drie jaar verhuisde het gezin naar de Verenigde Staten en begon hij als hoogleraar Anthropology and Latin American and Caribbean Studies aan de Universiteit van Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Door de jaren heen reisde het gezin geregeld naar Nederland voor familiebezoek en we zagen elkaar dan ook zeer regelmatig. Ik vind het jammer dat ik Tom en Louisette nooit in Champaign heb kunnen bezoeken terwijl ze nog leefden, maar heb altijd alsnog graag eens willen zien waar ze het grootste gedeelte van hun levens hebben doorgebracht.

Direct was ik gecharmeerd van het universiteitsstadje; de mooie huizen en gebouwen, de haast Europese sfeer en het vele groen. Op enkele honderden meters van de universiteitscampus arriveerden we halverwege de middag bij het voormalige huis van de familie Zuidema. Ik stapte uit de auto om de straat en het huis eens goed in me op te nemen. Wat bijzonder om hier te zijn! Hier was het dus, waar ze hun leven hebben doorgebracht. Wat een moedige stap moet het geweest zijn om al het bekende achter hun te laten voor dit grote avontuur. Maar wat moet het hier ook fijn geweest zijn. Terwijl we een aantal foto’s maakten van het huis kwam de overbuurvrouw naar buiten. Ze had waarschijnlijk direct haar vermoedens, het zal vast niet elke dag gebeuren dat toeristen foto’s nemen van dit willekeurig huis in deze willekeurige straat. Ze bleek mijn oudoom en oudtante goed gekend te hebben, bevriend met ze te zijn geweest. Vooral met mijn oudtante, Tom was altijd vooral in de weer met zijn boeken. Vele mooie verhalen volgden en ze wist mij echt een inkijkje te geven in het dagelijks leven van de laatste jaren van Louisette en Tom. Over hoe Tom dagelijks naar café Strawberry Fields liep voor een kopje koffie en The New York Times en hoe hij ook wandelend naar de campus ging. Ze nam ons mee naar het huis van mijn achternichtje Annegien, een paar straten verderop. Voor mijn reis hadden we contact gehad, maar helaas zat ze deze week in Maine.

Toen we afscheid namen gaf ze mij één van haar dichtbundels cadeau met daarin een prachtige eulogie, opgedragen aan Louisette. Later stuurde Gale me nog een heel lief e-mail bericht:

‘I couldn't remember your last name but I thought the encounter was lovely and at dinner that night I was going to tell my daughter (who is 20) about it.  So I said, ‘So I met this guy named Yorick...’ and before I could get any further her eyes got really wide and she said "Yorick the Musician???? and then she immediately calmed herself and kind of laughed at herself and said, “no he lives in Holland.’  And I said yeah I think that’s him – he's related to Tom and Louisette – and she ran and got her phone and said....This guy?  I said, I think so.  Turns out a friend of hers at college (in Kentucky) is a big fan and introduces everyone to his music.  Anyway I thought that was a good coda to the day.’

Wat een bizar toeval! Alsof het al niet gek genoeg was dat Dawn mijn muziek had leren kennen in Minneapolis.

Na een bezoek aan café Strawberry Fields vervolgden we onze reis naar de campus. Helaas was de universiteit door de summer break nagenoeg verlaten. Bij de afdeling Antropologie in de gang hing een grote wereldkaart met daarop geplaatst gekleurde punaises met vlaggetjes met namen. Op het vlaggetje bij de in Cuzco, Peru geplaatste punaise stond ‘Zuidema’. Ontroerend.

Vrijdag 13 juli

Het grootste gedeelte van vandaag stond in het teken van de terugreis naar Minneapolis, vanaf ons motel in Rockford een slordige 540 kilometer. ’s Avonds bezochten we ‘REBEL REBEL: ROCK FOR PUSSY XIV — A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE’ in de legendarische concertzaal First Avenue, voorheen bekend als The Depot, Uncle Sam’s en Sam’s. In de nachtclub begon het succes van menig artiest uit de Twin Cities (zoals bijvoorbeeld Prince, The Revolution, The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum en The Jayhawks) en daarnaast stond bijna iedere bekende Amerikaanse popartiest die sinds de jaren zeventig opkwam er weleens op de planken. Ik was dan ook erg benieuwd naar dit stukje pophistorie.

Van tevoren was ik een beetje huiverig geweest voor het bezoeken van deze avond, aangezien ik nooit zo gecharmeerd ben geweest van tribute bands. Ironisch misschien, daar ik zelf ook wel eens op de planken sta met eerbetonen aan The Beach Boys, The Summer of Love, Elvis, Frank Sinatra’s Watertown etc. 

Maar ik vind de meeste tributes simpelweg niet smaakvol en goed uitgevoerd. Als er dan ook nog eens opplaksnorren, pruiken en replica’s van iconische outfits in het spel zijn weet je meestal wel hoe het laat is. Plat spektakel en goedkoop entertainment winnen het nogal eens van goede sounds en een smaakvolle songselectie. ‘Het laaghangende fruit plukken’, noemde Anne Soldaat dat eens zo mooi in het persbericht van onze muziekvoorstelling Unsung Heroes

Maar de Bowie tribute night was ontzettend goed. De creme de la creme van de alternatieve popscene van Minneapolis stond op de planken. Een eerbetoon van liefhebbers voor liefhebbers. Smaakvol. Dawn en John hadden gelijk, deze jaarlijks terugkerende avond was zeer de moeite waard en First Avenue was een fantastische venue.

Heaven Presents... Yorick van Norden: 15 september in Patronaat, Haarlem; 30 september in Platoplanet, Groningen; 5 oktober in De Amer, Amen; 6 oktober in Molen De Ster, Utrecht; 12 oktober in Mezz, Breda; 27 oktober in Victorie, Alkmaar; 28 oktober in Underground, Lelystad.

    Positive Outlook for Inaugural Edition of ELDEX Asia

     Cache   
    Nov 06, 2019
    Picture: 

    Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The organisers of ELDEX Asia announced Ms Cheng Li Hui, Member of Parliament, Tampines GRC and North East Adviser to and member of the PAP Seniors Group, will be its guest of honour opening the event on 8 November (Friday) at 0900 hrs. Other officiating guests include Dr Kanwaljit Soin (Founding President of the Women’s Initiative for Ageing Successfully (WINGS) and former Nominated Member of Parliament), Dr Michael Fung (Deputy Chief Executive (Industry); Chief Human Resource Officer; Chief Data Officer, SkillsFuture Singapore) and Ms Bernice Tay (Director, Food Manufacturing, Enterprise Singapore). Following the opening ceremony, the guests will tour the exhibition, where there are over 100 exhibiting companies from 10 economies.[1] These include pavilions from Japan, Singapore and Taiwan, where the former is the country of honour. Majority of exhibitors come from the lifestyle and wellness; healthcare and rehabilitation; finance, insurance and other services; and technology, digital and IT segments. Where the exhibition segment is applicable, the Best In Class award winner, along with the commendation award, and the ELDEX Pride,[2] will be revealed during the show on 8 November. The event takes place from 8 – 10 November at Suntec Singapore.

    The ELDEX Asia Medical Conference on 8 Nov will commence from 0930 hrs with a keynote address by Associate Professor Wee Shiou Liang. The morning session will feature three other speakers discussing various aspects of the importance of exercise for seniors from pre-frail to increasingly frail stages before coming together to have a panel discussion. The afternoon session opens at 1400 hrs with a keynote address by Associate Professor Huang Dejian about the science behind food and how nutrition could be a form of medicine. After four other presentation about nutrition for seniors, there will be a panel discussion. The Medical Conference will conclude with a keynote by Professor Tai E-Shyong on new efforts by leveraging technology to enable the population to make healthier choices. The Singapore Medical Council, Singapore Nurses Board and Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association have recognised the strong scientific content by offering their attending members the following continuing education points:

    • Singapore Medical Council – 4 points
    • Singapore Nurses Board – 4 points
    • Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association – 3 points

    The over-subscribed conference will have over 350 delegates of which over 80% are doctors and nurses, while the rest are from the allied health community including therapists, dietitians and pharmacists. A number of the registered doctor delegates are from Australia, India and the US.

    “We are absolutely delighted with the encouraging response of registrants for this first-time event. A quick glean of the data indicate that we have representatives from almost all of the local hospitals, including community ones, caregiving centres and homes attending the conference. Instead of capping the number of delegates to what we had originally planned, we have instead expanded the conference room by over 30% to accommodate more from the medical and allied health fraternities to come together to learn and network. We hope to accommodate as many interested delegates as possible,” said Mr Joseph Yeo, Event Director.

    Trade professionals can expect to see exciting innovative products that are new to the market. There will also be products, solutions and technology to help them do more with less, especially with the currently labour-tight market in the eldercare space. The Food For Elders pavilion, led by Enterprise Singapore, will feature food products by Singapore companies that cater to the special needs of the silver demographic. Trade visitors can rely on recommended trails, available in the show directory, for the various exhibition segments to help them find the companies providing the types of products and services that they may be seeking.

    A full day of B2B workshops have been lined up for trade visitors on 8 Nov, starting with a two-hour ELDEX Asia Jobs and Skills Panel, led by ELDEX Asia’s Skills Partner, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). Together with their training partners, HMI Institute of Health Sciences, Singapore Institute of Technology’s Lean Transformation Innovation Centre, and Tsao Foundation, SSG will kick start the session by sharing about the changing jobs and skills landscape, different skills development models, and Singapore’s tripartite partnership models to build an enabling skills ecosystem for the Eldercare sector[3]. The panel will be followed by Japan Hour (where three of the exhibiting Japanese companies: gSports, Morinaga and Assist Motion, will talk about their new products). In the afternoon, there will be workshops by Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) and Institute of Geriatrics and Active Ageing (IGA), with respect to their various programmes and initiatives in providing care for the elderly. There will be press conferences by Spire Research and Consulting on the market opportunities in the silver industry, and SGAssist, who will be launching their new App. There will also be an MOU signing among ELDEX Asia’s strategic partner, Brands For Good, and CEO Asia and ASEAN Corporate Social Responsibility Network to launch their tripartite partnership to launch ARIBA (ASEAN Responsible and Inclusive Business Alliance) that will be managed by CEO Asia.

    Over the weekend on 9 and 10 November, ELDEX Asia will be open to the public. Besides becoming more aware of the different types of products available to help with ageing better particularly at the product demonstrations by exhibiting companies, there is a rich collection of workshops covering a broad range of topics including dementia, using technology to monitor diabetes, preparing for life’s eventuality, suitable exercises for active agers, support for caregivers, among many others. The full schedule of workshops may be found here. For the first 500 registered consumers that turn up each day, they can receive a goody bag valued at over S$50 comprising items including rice sponsored by Foodness Asia, pain relief gel, and vouchers from select exhibitors. There will be activities for the public where when they complete designated trails within the exhibition halls, they can stand to win different items.

    “We have invested in ensuring that all attendees can visit the exhibition and the workshops for free, as long as they pre-register. We have worked in creating fun elements at the show where there are prizes to be won, including Samsung tablets with two years’ newspaper subscription to Berita Harian and Lianhe Zaobao, a two nights’ stay at the fairly recently opened Capital Kempinski, among others. We have carefully curated a collection of workshops that span a wide spectrum of interest areas that the public will find appealing and pique their curiosity. The reason why we have done so is because we want to inform and educate the public the importance of preparing for living longer lives in a better way. This social cause is particularly important to us as we all have family members that are ageing. The knowledge we gain through the workshops can help them to age better and retard frailty through active ageing,” concluded Mr Yeo.

    ARA US Hospitality Trust Announces Acquisition of a Portfolio of Three Premium Marriott-Branded Upscale Select-Service Hotels in the United States

     Cache   
    Nov 06, 2019

    SINGAPORE, Nov 6, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - ARA US Hospitality Trust ("ARA H-Trust") is pleased to announce that it has today entered into a conditional purchase and sales agreement to acquire a portfolio of three Marriott-branded upscale select-service hotels in the United States for US$84.5 million. The three freehold properties are located within the markets of Raleigh, North Carolina and San Antonio, Texas, that benefit from diversified demand from nearby corporations, universities and leisure attractions.

    The accretive acquisition at a net property income yield of 8.0% is expected to increase ARA H-Trust's pro forma distribution income from the listing date on 9 May 2019 to 30 September 2019 by US$1.4 million, translating to a rise in distribution per stapled security from 3.13 US cents to 3.38 US cents assuming the acquisition was completed on listing date. The acquisition will be funded primarily with debt and by internal cash resources. Following this acquisition, ARA H-Trust's portfolio will grow to 41 hotels with 5,340 guest rooms geographically diversified throughout 22 states in the United States.

    Mr Lee Jin Yong, the Chief Executive Officer of the Managers, said, "This acquisition demonstrates our ability to execute third-party transactions at an attractive yield in the world's largest lodging market. We will continue to explore acquisition opportunities to further diversify our portfolio by location and by brand, and most importantly to enhance stapled securityholders' returns."

    DBS Bank Ltd. ("DBS") was the Sole Issue Manager for the Offering (the "Sole Issue Manager"). DBS, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited and United Overseas Bank Limited were the Joint Financial Advisers and Joint Global Coordinators for the Offering (collectively, the "Joint Financial Advisers and Joint Global Coordinators"). DBS, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited, United Overseas Bank Limited and Credit Suisse (Singapore) Limited were the Joint Bookrunners and Underwriters for the Offering (collectively, the "Joint Bookrunners and Underwriters").

    Mr Lee added, "We are excited with the addition of this high quality freehold portfolio which will broaden our earnings base with diversified and increased net property income. The portfolio has outperformed its competitive set recording RevPAR indices between 120% to 146%. The superior revenue per available room (RevPAR) performance will contribute robust, stable cashflows to our bottom-line. In addition, the acquisition will affiliate ARA H-Trust with Marriott, a leading global hotel brand, and Concord Hospitality, a well-regarded, experienced hotel developer and operator in the US. The new relationship with Concord is expected to broaden our network to source future accretive acquisitions."

    The portfolio consists of AC by Marriott Raleigh North Hills, Courtyard San Antonio at The Rim and Residence Inn San Antonio at The Rim.

    AC by Marriott Raleigh North Hills is the newest hotel within the heart of Raleigh's North Hills - one of Raleigh/Durham's premier live-work-play destinations.

It is also strategically located 20 to 30 minutes to the airport, downtown Raleigh, and the Research Triangle Park. The Research Triangle Park is one of the most prominent high-tech research and development parks in the United States and houses 200 companies (including IBM, SAS, GlaxoSmithKline, Cisco and Lenovo) with over 50,000 workers.

The local market features attractive residential, retail, office developments, as well as popular leisure attractions.

    Australian Woman Discovers Celiac Disease After Battling Infertility

     Cache   
    Celiac.com 11/05/2019 - After failing to conceive naturally over several years, the woman, Helen Tzouganatos, turned to IVF doctor Professor Mark Bowman. Tzouganatos says she and her husband had "tried every fertility trick in the book – expensive ovulation kits, herbal remedies, acupuncture, eating more of this and less of that, taking a holiday, taking another holiday – and nothing worked." During her intake, Tzouganatos told Dr. Bowman that she had no "serious" health issues just unexplained anemia since childhood, abdominal cramps and lactose intolerance. To his credit, Dr. Bowman immediately suspected she was a celiac. He ordered a celiac blood screen. When the results came back positive, everything became clear. "You’re a celiac and that is why you’re infertile," Dr. Bowman told her. "You need to cut gluten immediately.” Tzouganatos began a gluten-free diet immediately, and, after six rounds of IVF treatment, she conceived her son Vasili, followed by a daughter, Sofia, conceived on the second frozen embryo transfer 17 months later. Statistical data indicate that one in 70 Australians have celiac disease yet 80 per cent are undiagnosed. Tzouganatos is lucky that her celiac disease was discovered quickly by her IVF doctor, after sneaking under the radar for so long. Any women experiencing unexplained infertility, especially in conjunction with other celiac-related symptoms should be screened to rule out celiac disease. Quick adoption of a gluten-free diet can often lead to full healing and normal, or greatly improved fertility. Read more at SMH.com.au

    Sorry Queenslanders we’re trying to list some current MCM goodness for you, but in the meantime check out this incredible monolith we’ve been alerted to sadly little too late as it sold in July. We are equal parts in awe of its commanding street presence, internal features (timber, joinery, tile and double sided fireplace for starters) and worried about its future. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope it has landed in the right hands………..We post it here as testament to remarkable, local design and as a meagre form of digital preservation.

    The scramble to fix Scrabble Hill

     Cache   

    Duxbury Select Board members heard preliminary plans to fix Scrabble Hill Road from DuBois & King this week.

    On Monday, October 28, board members heard from Brian Breslend, DuBois & King project engineer, and Dave Crawford, local project manager for the Scrabble Hill project.

    Scrabble Hill Road has seen many episodes when excessive water runoff washes out the road, destroys ditches and culverts and pushes the road over a bank on one side of the road. The issue has been ongoing for years.

    The team went over costs including roadside ditches and culverts, culvert channel and hillside stabilization and roadway reconstruction totaling $654,000. Project development phases such as preliminary engineering and construction, construction engineers and municipal project management, including the $654,000, bring the total to $1,008,700. Eighty percent of this project would be state funded and 20 percent would be town funded. The town has already agreed to commit funding to this project.

    WATER

    Analyses have been performed by DuBois & King that follow the VTrans hydraulics manual and have used computer-aided models to help. The DuBois & King team looked at the soils that come off the bank from the top of Scrabble Hill onto the roadway; the team also saw which way water ran down the hill and which culverts it flowed into.

    The team looked at increasing existing ditch sizes, increasing culvert sizes and adding new culverts to reduce the amount of water that goes into existing inlets and ditches. The team looked at designing culverts and ditches with an overflow weir on the inlet of a culvert to control when water flows downstream to reduce the probability of water flowing and washing out Scrabble Hill Road as it has done for years.

    Scrabble Hill Road has three culverts, one 18 feet, one 24 feet and one 48 feet. The team would like to upsize two of the culverts to 48 feet and retain the third at 48 feet. Additionally, the team proposed increasing the size and depth of the roadway ditches along the project’s length. The ditches would also be stabilized with 2 feet of stone fill, type II. The team would construct overflow weirs at the culvert inlets and install reinforced concrete headwalls at each culvert.

    PUBLIC COMMENT

    Several Scrabble Hill Road residents said they did not think enlarging ditches and culverts alone would stop road and bank degradation that comes with rainfall. Residents suggested a plan with a reinforcement wall that goes down far enough into the bank to add stability. Other residents said that water comes from every angle off Scrabble Hill, running on the sides of the road and over the middle of the road and when water comes off Mountainview and Scrabble Hill it speeds up near the culverts.

    After reviewing what would be done to work with traffic during this project, the team went over other alternatives. These were the inclusion of drainage improvements along Mountainview Road, installation of a new cross culvert on Scrabble Hill adjacent to Mountainview Road, increased ditch depth for greater water flow and the inclusion of retaining wall systems to negate right-of-way impacts.

    DUXBURY BOND

    The Duxbury Select Board also hosted a bond hearing meeting at Crossett Brook Middle School (CBMS) on Tuesday, October 29. This meeting was a public information hearing on the bond issue proposition. There will be Australian ballot voting from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at a special Town Meeting on November 5, 2019, at CBMS.

    The bond vote is for the town of Duxbury to not exceed the amount of $300,000 to be issued to finance capital improvements to the town highway garage. The improvements include reinforcing the current structure, replacing the roof, wall panels and overhead doors as well as electrical upgrades.

    Under New Deal, Australian Women's And Men's Soccer Will Get Equal Share Of Revenue

     Cache   

    Australia's soccer governing body says it has reached an agreement with its top-flight men's and women's teams that will give the teams an equal share of player-generated revenue and lift the salaries of its women's team.

    Under the collective bargaining agreement between Football Federation Australia and Professional Footballers Australia, the two teams will be granted 24% of the revenue that they generate: 19% for themselves, and 5% to be invested in their names in the country's youth national teams. The share paid to players will rise one point a year.

    Salaries for the women's team will rise under the new deal. Top women's players will make about $57,000 USD a year in 2020, up from about $38,000 this year.

    The FFA says the deal amounts to a 90% raise in guaranteed minimum payments for the Matildas, as the women's team is known. The men's team is the Socceroos. (Australia has achieved relative parity in team nicknames.)

    The contract promise other improvements for the women's team. The federation says it will upgrade the parental leave policy to provide more support for Matildas both during pregnancy and when they return to the pitch. Training conditions will now match those of the men's team. And the Matildas will travel in business class on international flights, as the Socceroos long have.

    The agreement is good for four years, governing the payouts for the next men's and women's World Cups. Australia is among the nations vying to host the 2023 women's tournament.

    The Matildas have historically fared better on the international stage than their male counterparts. At the 2019 Women's World Cup, the Matildas were eliminated by Norway on penalties in the round of 16, while the Socceroos finished last in their group at the 2018 men's tournament.

    Under the new deal, players will get 40% of the prize money awarded by FIFA for playing in a World Cup, rising to 50% if they qualify for the knockout round. That's up from the 30% the teams made before.

    But it also represents the contract's limits in terms of parity, because the payouts from FIFA are so much smaller for the women's tournament. In 2023, women's teams will share $60 million, while in 2022 the men will divide $440 million – a pot more than seven times bigger.

    Australia joins other countries in improving pay and working conditions for its women's teams. Norway began paying its men's and women's teams equal salaries in 2017, and New Zealand announced pay parity and international business-class travel for its women's team last year.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. women's team lawsuit alleging gender discrimination by U.S. soccer continues. Mediation between the two parties broke down, and the case is headed for trial in May 2020.

    Alex Morgan, co-captain of the U.S. team that made "equal pay" their cry of victory at last summer's World Cup, said in August that she's hopeful the two sides can find a resolution before going to court.

    The team's fight for parity isn't for themselves, she said, but for the next generation of players.

    "We're not going to reap the benefits from equal pay and what we're fighting for," she told NPR. "That next generation should feel confident that they're in good hands, and that we are setting up this structure, and this compensation, and this true equality for them."

    The Origins of Human Evolution - Out of Africa and into the Pitt Rivers Museum

    Event date: 

    Some 45,000 years ago, a group of about 1500 humans who were genetically similar left Africa for Asia. Successive generations of their descendants were the first members of H.sapiens to explore the earth, apart from Australia - the ancestors of today's indigenous population left Africa around 10,000 years earlier. The talk will discuss how that original group became the genetically diverse mix of peoples who now inhabit our world. Perhaps surprisingly, some of the key evidence on the limitations of our differences today is to be found in the Pitt Rivers Museum.

    The Dream: You wake up one morning and notice your website a

     Cache   

    Autore: Mims

    Inviato: 01 Nov 2019 05:22:05



    The Dream: You wake up one morning and notice your website appears on the #1 spot for your chosen keyword. The traffic is enormous
    , the business is huge and you are rolling in cash. How? Well...


    This will never happen to you or your competitors (luckily) but over time, it is possible for your website to achive top google positions by following a few simple steps which are known as "The Golden 5".


    1. Keyword Selection for your website. Example Term: Hosting
    The first step to successful SEO is always keyword research. Without it, you are like a bull in a china store. Bob and Jane are a loving couple who own a web hosting business and would like to do much better on google. Bob says they should optimize their site for the word "hosting" because According to Overture there are 1,426
    ,822 searches bi-monthly for the word this word. Sounds like a lot, but because the competition for hosting is so intense, there is little benefit in its pursuit. Jane then suggests that they pursue the term "windows hosting" since thats what they specialise in. Jane is right, it's better to rank 1st for a more specific term than rank 50th for a generic term. Use to find search terms you feel are atainable.


    2. Use your selected keywords in your website.
    Use your nich keyword to use anywhere you can. But don't let the keyword density get too high or your site may become over-optimised. 5% is usually okay. Use the keywords intags
    , heading tags, etc...


    3. Website Relationships
    Like the loving couple Jane and Bob, your website needs a loving partner too. It's time to step away from the cheap "link building" campaigns. Google is now looking at how good a link is by calculating how long website visitors stay whilst at a link. It's time to start building solid business relationships with other websites.


    4. Content is King!
    Write relevant, interesting content for your website. Write some stories
    , articles, anything. Try for one new content page a week, more if you have time. Employ someone if you need to. For example, VroomVroomVroom a car rental company employ a journalist to write australian car hire and travel articles. Bob excitedly says to Jane "We should do this!" He is right
    , but by no means should you ever plagiarize someone elses work. This could lead to a total exclusion from google. It is easy to prove and not worth the risk. "Don't even think about it!" Jane warns Bob.


    5. Use experts for your Hosting, SEO and Relationship building.
    A wise entrepreneur once said that their key to success was to "ask questions". That means, don't be afraid to get help. Don't be afraid to use services that can get you to the top. The difficulty is that the Golden 5 steps can only get you so far. There are 1000's of factors that effect your website ranking. Bob and Jane both know that they can't win if they do it alone. Use your instinct when deciding from whom to seek free and paid advice. Bob, Jane and yourself can get started by seeking SEO advise at - a great resource by SEO experts.


    Good luck with your website and may the Golden 5 bring your website alive!

    CWI announces West Indies Women's squad for T20I series against India Women

     Cache   

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua- Cricket West Indies (CWI) named a fourteen (14) member squad to take on India Women in a five-match T20 International Series to be played on November 9 and 10 at the Daren Sammy National Stadium in St. Lucia and on November 14,17 and 20 at the National Stadium in Guyana.

    The team will be led by Stafanie Taylor and sees the return of Shakera Selman. Shakera missed the Colonial Medical Insurance ODI series as an injury precaution to ensure her full fitness and availability for the T20I series.

    This is the final home international T20I Series for the West Indies Women before the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia starting in February 2020. These matches are the primary focus of India’s Tour of the West Indies as a vital part of the team’s preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup.

    Your earliest memory of Pattaya

     Cache   
    I went past Pattaya (which was a small fishing village) aboard a bus full of Australian sailors in 1965, from Sattahip, which we accessed by boat from our ship anchored just off the coast. We were enroute to Bangkok, and I have no recollection of what, or where Pattaya was. In fact I have no recollection of the return trip south neither, as I was just one other drunken sailor on the trip. It took me many years to get back to Patts, and I guess my first trip to the now much bigger place would have been in the early 2000s. I did return (alongside) to Sattahip in the late 60s, during the Vietnam war, but stayed locally.

    China encamina la mayor alianza económica de libre comercio del mundo sin EE.UU.

     Cache   

    Los lideres del ASEAN en la primera sesión de la cumbre en Bangkok, REUTERSCumbre de ASEAN en Bankgok, REUTERS

    La cumbre de la Asociación de Naciones del Sudeste Asiático se lleva a cabo en Bangkok y se produce sin la presencia de Donald Trump que había sido especialmente invitado y con el régimen chino ocupando todo el espacio y camino a coronar en este foro la alianza económica de libre comercio más grande del mundo.

     

    La ASEAN, un bloque defensor del liberalismo económico y que ha sido crítico de las políticas proteccionistas aplicadas por Estados Unidos, abrió el encuentro con la celebración de la sesión plenaria de los países miembros, a la que las sesiones con China y una delegación de bajo perfil despachada por EE.UU. Beijing, en cambio, envió a su primer ministro Li Keqiang a una cita en la que apuesta cuotas de enorme influencia.

     

    El largo enfrentamiento comercial entre estas dos potencias mundiales y sus efectos sobre la economía global es uno los temas centrales de la cumbre. El ciclo de crecimiento planetario se ralentizó debido a ese enfrentamiento según dictaminó el Fondo Monetario Internacional y el Banco Mundial. El ministro filipino de Comercio, Ramón López, reconoció a la prensa que las medidas aplicadas por Washington y Beijing "afectan de manera negativa al crecimiento económico" de su país y el resto de las naciones.

     

    El plato fuerte del foro de Bangkok y al que hay que prestar especial atención es la tercera ronda de negociaciones de líderes de la Asociación Económica Integral Regional (RCEP) donde se marcha a concretar la firma de un megatratado de libre comercio que aunaría a más de un tercio de la economía mundial. La República Popular ha venido ocupando foros alrededor del mundo reclamando la liberación del intercambio comercial y repudiando el proteccionismo de Washington.

     

    China es el integrante más poderoso y principal impulsor del RCEP, que también incluye a Australia, Corea del Sur, Japón, India, Nueva Zelanda. A ellos se unan los diez miembros de la ASEAN, formada por Birmania, Brunéi, Camboya, Filipinas, Indonesia, Laos, Malasia, Singapur, Tailandia y Vietnam. El ministro filipino precisó que 15 de las naciones han mostrado su completa conformidad al pacto negociado, pero que todavía "esperan a un país". No lo dijo pero se refería a la India que ha tenido suspicacias respecto a la influencia creciente de China.

     

    La importancia de ese convenio lo dan los números. El RCEP, cuyas negociaciones se iniciaron de manera formal en la ASEAN de 2012 celebrada en Camboya, engloba una población de 3.400 millones de personas -el 47 % de la población mundial- y un Producto Interior Bruto de 22,6 billones de dólares, superior a EE.UU. y el 32,2 % del PIB mundial. También aglutina el 29 % del comercio mundial y el 32,5 % de la inversión mundial.

     

    A pesar de los grandes datos que presenta el megatratado, las negociaciones han sido lentas y complicadas y desde hace ya cinco años las dirigentes políticos de las naciones implicadas aseguran reiteradamente estar cerca de alcanzar un acuerdo, para al final postergarlo al año siguiente.

     

    Entre los obstáculos que han impedido el avance, se encuentran precisamente los temores de Nueva Delhi a que el RCEP acabe dañando la manufactura local e India se vea inundada por productos fabricados en China. Beijing sugirió a fin de avanzar con el acuerdo dejar que India se asocie en una etapa posterior del RCEP.

     

    La ausencia de Trump en una cumbre de este significado, no sorprendió a los analistas. El presidente norteamericano, en una de sus primeras gestiones tras llegar a la Casa Blanca, anuló la participación de EE.UU. en un acuerdo tras-pacífico que impulsó el ex presidente Barack Obama. Esa iniciativa pretendía aislar comercialmente a China. Un dato del desdén de la Casa Blanca, es que en la delegación que envió a Bangkok figura el ministro de Comercio Wilbur Ross pero también su asesor de seguridad nacional Robert O´Brien. La decisión de Trump de bajar el perfil de esta cumbre, liberó al gigante asiático para aumentar su influencia en la región e insistir en asumirse como el adalid del libre comercio arrebatando esa bandera a Washington.

     

    Además de los asuntos económicos, la agenda de la cumbre también incluye asuntos de seguridad, sanidad, desarrollo de la región o medidas destinadas a combatir la contaminación y la lucha contra cambio climático, entre otros temas.

    House of Lords open letter to Monckton: you are not a member!

    House of Lords open letter to Monckton: you are not a member!

    After The House of Lords wrote to Monckton telling him that he should not claim to be a member, Monckton kept doing it. So now The House of Lords has written an open letter to Monckton:

    My predecessor, Sir Michael Pownall, wrote to you on 21 July 2010, and again on 30 July 2010, asking that you cease claiming to be a Member of the House of Lords, either directly or by implication. It has been drawn to my attention that you continue to make such claims.

    In particular, I have listened to your recent interview with Mr Adam Spencer on Australian radio. In response to the direct question, whether or not you were a Member of the House of Lords, you said "Yes, but without the right to sit or vote". You later repeated, "I am a Member of the House".

    I must repeat my predecessor's statement that you are not and have never been a Member of the House of Lords. Your assertion that you are a Member, but without the right to sit or vote, is a contradiction in terms.

    Leo Hickman has more:

    Buckingham Palace was drawn into the dispute when it was revealed that Pownall had sought advice from the Lord Chamberlain, a key officer in the royal household, on the potential misuse of the portcullis emblem due to it being the property of the Queen. The Buckingham Palace website states that any misuse of the emblem is prohibited by the Trade Marks Act 1994, meaning Monckton could potentially be liable for fines and a six-month prison term if the palace pursues the matter and successfully prosecutes him.

    As far as I know, I was the first person to note that Monckton was lying about his membership of The House of Lords, way back in 2007.

    See also: John Quiggin:

    That's typically the opening lie in a Monckton presentation that misrepresents everything from the United Nations to the laws of arithmetic. It's hard to imagine how many cease and desist letters would be required to stop all the falsehoods, or what would be left of his presentation if they were removed[1].

    Monckton interviewed by Adam Spencer

    Monckton interviewed by Adam Spencer

    Christopher Monckton was so annoying when interviewed by Adam Spencer that Spencer hung up on him before finishing the interview later on. The Australian was so impressed by Monckton's performance that they posted a partial transcript. Moth at New Anthropocene corrects many of Monckton's misrepresentations, so I'll just cover what was in the transcript posted by The Australian -- presumably they think those are his strongest points.

    Spencer: Can I just clarify sir, are you a member of the House of Lords?

    Monckton: Yes, but without the right to sit or vote.

    Spencer: Because the House of Lords, when you've made that claim before, have repeatedly asked you to stop calling yourself as such, haven't they?

    Monckton: No they haven't because they have not yet repealed the letters patent creating the peerage and until they do I am a member of the House as my passport records. It says I'm the Right Honourable Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, so get used to it.

    Christopher Monckton told to stop claiming he is a member of the Lords:

    The House of Lords has stepped up its efforts to make Lord Monckton - climate sceptic and deputy leader of the UK Independence party - desist in his repeated claims that he is a member of the upper house.

    The push comes as Buckingham Palace has also been drawn into the affair, over his use of a logo similar to parliament's famous portcullis emblem.

    Last month Michael Pownall, clerk of the parliaments, wrote to Lord Monckton, a hereditary peer, stressing that he should not refer to himself as a member of the House of Lords, nor should he use any emblem representing the portcullis. ...

    The House of Lords said today it strongly rejects Monckton's interpretation. A spokeswoman said: "Lord Monckton is not and never has been a member of the House of Lords. The clerk of the parliaments has written to Lord Monckton, confirming that he has no association with the House and advising him to stop branding himself as such."

    Back to the interview:

    Spencer: Are you a Nobel Laureate as is claimed on many websites?

    Monckton: No website that I control says any such thing. It is, however, quite clear that after a seminar that I had given, Professor of Physics David Douglas kindly presented me with a little prize pin which I wear from time to time.

    That's what we on the centre-Right would call "a joke". It is something you on the Left at the ABC might not fully understand.

    Later in the interview Monckton directs listeners to scienceandpublicypolicy.org where it states that he is the Chief Policy Advisor and that

    His contribution to the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 - the correction of a table inserted by IPCC bureaucrats that had overstated tenfold the observed contribution of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets to sea-level rise - earned him the status of Nobel Peace Laureate.

    Now it is possible that is a joke, but only if the rest of Monckton's biography there is a joke, along with all his writings on climate science. If so, I think it's time he let us in on the jape. Update: Barry Bickmore adds:

    In April of last year, I personally informed Bob Ferguson (president of SPPI) about his organization's complicity in Monckton's résumé padding in an e-mail conversation.

    Spencer: J. P. Abraham presented to you a list of dozens of them, including Dr [Ola] Johannessen for example.

    Monckton: Right. Now can you please tell me what I got wrong in Dr Johannessen's paper?

    Allow me. See slide 76 of Abraham's presentation. Monckton put up a slide asserting "Greenland ice sheet is just fine" citing Johannessen et al 2005 and said:

    Here is a paper by Johannessen et al, a very diligent Danish researcher using laser altimetry and what he found was that from 1992 to 2003 the average thickness of Greenland's ice sheet increased by 2 inches a year.

    Johannessen is Norwegian, not Danish. His study used radar altimetry, not laser altimetry. And most importantly, the area studied did not cover the entire ice sheet so you cannot conclude from the study that the ice sheet is "just fine". Johannessen et al clearly state:

    First, we cannot make an integrated assessment of elevation
    changes--let alone ice volume and its equivalent sea-level change--for
    the whole Greenland Ice Sheet, including its outlet glaciers, from
    these observations alone, because the marginal areas are not measured
    completely using ERS-1/ERS-2 altimetry (see Fig. 1).

    Monckton was just repeating a misrepresentation of Johannessen's work made by the CEI and refuted back in 2006.

    In the interview Monckton offered this defence:

    What so-called Professor Abraham had said was that I had not mentioned a paper published by Ola Johannessen in 2009 -- that's a different paper -- in which 273 billion tons, he said, had gone from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean. I didn't because that paper hadn't reached me, partly because it hadn't been published at the time I gave the talk because he made his criticism of me eight months later.

    The paper referred to was not published by Johannessen but rather was sent to Abraham by Johannessen when Abraham asked Johannessen if Monckton had accurately presented Johannessen's work. While it was published after Monckton's talk, Abraham cited four more papers, all published before Monckton's talk and all showing Greenland losing ice. Monckton continued with:

    I calculated that was 6 inches of the two feet of ice that had accumulated had gone back over the next few years, swings and roundabouts, into the ocean and that would have caused sea level to rise globally by exactly 0.7 mm. And that is the point Abraham held against me. Had he talked to Professor Johannessen? Not as far as I know.

    The paper did not say that the total ice loss was 273 gigatons, but that the total from 2000-2008 was 1500 gigatons and the rate after 2006 was 273 gigatons per year. And again, Johannessen's earlier paper did not cover the entire ice sheet so you cannot say that 2 feet of ice had accumulated on average over the whole sheet. Abraham had contacted Johannessen -- the email form Johannessen was even included in his presentation.

    The Conversation has created a Monckton Watch page to correct Monckton's misinformation.

    The 27 Best Concerts in Portland: November 7-20

    Cher! Brittany Howard! Summer Walker! Blitzen Trapper! by Mercury EverOut Staff

    THURS NOV 7

    {{image:7, align:right, width:250}}

    CRITIC’S PICK: Seefeel
    You don’t listen to the music of Seefeel—you submerge yourself in it. Each release by the UK quartet—four full-lengths and a bunch of EPs—is constructed from the usual rock-group elements: guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals. But from those pieces, the group bends and manipulates every sound with delicious indulgence, generating lush, balmy compositions that hang thickly in the air.

    In Seefeel’s earliest incarnation, albums like 1993’s Quique and 1995’s Succour fell into an amorphous zone where shoegaze and the earliest blushes of EDM found common cause—the same place where groups like My Bloody Valentine and Curve were planting their flags. Led by core members Mark Clifford and Sarah Peacock, Seefeel were, by contrast, much softer and lighter. (Clifford also makes wonderful electronic rackets on his own and in the duo Oto Hiax; Peacock works with the more dance-oriented outfit Scala.) Their immersive, foggy material brought in the influence of dub reggae, Brian Eno’s ambient compositions, and the sleek futurism of Tokyo’s “environmental music” movement.

    After a 1996 album, (CH-VOX), recorded for Aphex Twin’s label, tensions within the group split Seefeel apart for the better part of a decade. But an invite to play an anniversary party for Warp Records and a reissue of Quique in ’07 got Clifford and Peacock speaking and collaborating again, bringing in a new rhythm section comprised of former Boredoms members Iida Kazuhisa and bassist Shigeru Ishihara to complete the picture.

    The subsequent years have hardened Seefeel’s sound, as evidenced by their 2008 self-titled album. The drum tracks are rigid and spare, and the music surrounding them is glitchy and agitated. It’s a reflection, perhaps, of our anxious modern age, but one that still slots in well with the evolution of their aesthetic as individuals and as a group.

    Little Hurricane
    With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’Em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

    Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
    Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $15-17) RYAN J. PRADO

    Robert Forster
    The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan suddenly passed away a year later.) Much has happened in Forster’s life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace.

    Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
    The experimental folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, all ages, $30) RYAN J. PRADO


    MON NOV 11

    June of 44, Belonging
    June of 44 disbanded soon after perfecting their squirrelly amalgam of post-rock and post-hardcore on 1999’s Anahata. For listeners of a certain (suddenly somehow old) age, the band’s return will trigger flashbacks to a time when it was illegal to make a student film without at least one Tortoise song on its soundtrack, but June of 44’s unexpected reunion promises to be more than a nostalgia trip. They were always a little too restive and mercurial to settle into a groove, so even a pitch-perfect recreation of their glory days will be nervy enough to light up the now.

    Son Little
    Son Little has been making musical alchemy ever since releasing his debut EP in 2014. But on his early work, including his 2015 self-titled debut, you can hear Little only beginning to refine his unique sound—a mix of soul, blues, and electronica—which he’d come close to perfecting on 2017’s brilliant sophomore album New Magic. For his new EP, Invisible, Little traveled to Paris’ famed Studios Ferber, and the six new songs show the multi-instrumentalist and singer still continuing to develop and experiment with his craft. Tonight’s show at the Old Church isn’t to be missed; this preacher’s son is sure to give a sanctified and transcendent performance.

    Bea Miller, Kah-Lo, Kennedi
    Popping onto the scene as a 13-year-old X-Factor contestant with a jaw-dropping voice, Bea Miller is all grown up (at the age of 20) both physically and emotionally. Her voice has matured as well, with a full, husky, and soulful sound that drops into radio-ready dance club jams with little effort. But there’s depth in her lyrics as well, as exemplified by songs from her sophomore album Aurora, which showcase her deep moods about problematic relationships (“Burning Bridges”), slut-shaming (“S.L.U.T.”), and ultimately self-love (“Repercussions”). If you’re a complicated person with complicated feelings, Miller is on your team, stylishly and confidently pushing all the right emotional buttons.

    Summer Walker
    Atlanta-born singer/songwriter Summer Walker has become R&B’s newest “It Girl” on the heels of her single “Girls Need Love” (along with a Drake remix), and her outstanding studio debut Over It. Vocally speaking, Walker’s appropriately titled project is basically flawless. There are obvious standouts, like “Playing Games” featuring Bryson Tiller, “Wasted,” and “Come Thru” which both samples and features Usher. Another notable release is an older cut, “Session 32,” which Walker sometimes likes to perform on acoustic guitar. And from the sounds of her live performances online, she tends to sound identical to the record. If you’re into the sex-positivity of Megan THEE Stallion and like well-seasoned R&B vocals riding on a trap beat (à la H.E.R. and Ella Mai), Summer Walker’s impeccable soul-singing is right up your alley.

    Hustle and Drone, Karma Rivera, Kileo
    It’s been five years since Portland-based electro-pop band Hustle and Drone released its debut full-length album, Holyland. At one point, members Ryan Neighbors and Andy Black thought they’d made major progress on a follow-up effort, with 25 songs written over a two-year period. But when producer Sonny DiPerri heard them, his response—described by the band only as “tough love”—prompted the duo to scrap everything and start over from scratch. This time, their work turned into an actual album, What an Uproar, which finds Hustle and Drone exploring a very moody take on synth and beat-driven electro-pop. Upbeat but not cheerful, catchy but not effusive, What an Uproar is a collection of dark and danceable bummer-songs that befit our times. (Thurs Nov 14, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $7) BEN SALMON

    Rodney Crowell, Joe Robinson
    Among a particular school of songwriters, Rodney Crowell is country music royalty. His place in the Nashville firmament was secured by not only the run of number one singles he scored in 1988-89 (all from his album Diamonds & Dirt), but also his work with Emmylou Harris and lesser known masterpieces like “Voilà, an American Dream” and “Stars on the Water.” With that pedigree, Crowell should be headlining a much bigger venue than the Alberta Rose Theatre. But rather than gripe about that, let’s instead revel in the fact that we’ll get to experience his intimate songs in an appropriately intimate setting.

    Death Valley Girls, Crocodiles, Kate Clover
    Death Valley Girls creates fuzzed-out, overdriven, guitar-heavy rock ’n’ roll that owes just as much to riot grrrl pioneers like Bikini Kill as to proto-punk icons like the Stooges and Dead Boys. Formed in 2013 by guitarist Larry Schemel and frontwoman Bonnie Bloomgarden, the LA band has released only a few albums, including their 2014 Burger Records debut, Street Venom, but their new single, “Dream Cleaver,” released this August on Suicide Squeeze, might be their catchiest work yet, proving that their best material is still ahead of them. For proof of their proto-punk credentials, check out their 2018 music video for “Disaster (Is What We’re After),” starring a very bemused-looking Iggy Pop eating a hamburger.

    Brother Ali, Evidence
    The beauty of hip-hop’s multifaceted evolution over the past couple of decades is that there’s something out there for everyone. If, for example, sing-song pop-hop or slurry Soundcloud rap isn’t your thing, you can dig into artists like Brother Ali and Evidence, two skilled MCs connected to respected indie hip-hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Ali is the better known of the two, thanks to a two-decade career built around his thoughtful, soft-spoken style and his social activism. His most recent album All the Beauty in This Whole Life is another banger in an incredibly consistent catalog. Evidence’s sound is more aggressive, both in its lyrical content and its beats. He came up with LA’s Dilated Peoples, one of the giants of the ’90s underground, but he ain’t falling off: His most recent album Weather or Not was one of the best releases of 2018, regardless of genre.

    Amy Rigby
    In my dream Coachella-style music festival, Amy Rigby would be the big headliner. She’s certainly got the talent and the tunes to command an audience of thousands. Just give a spin to her spotless 1996 debut album Diary of a Mod Housewife or her equally perfect 2018 release The Old Guys, records that are brimming with chiming power-pop tunes and Rigby’s arch yet sensitive worldview. As it is, Rigby will be bringing her inestimable skills to the much smaller confines of Turn! Turn! Turn! to perform some tunes and read from her recently published memoir Girl to City.

    Sea Caves, Lee and the Bees, Jame Doe
    After being nearly finished writing and recording their latest record, founding Sea Caves member Shiloh Halsey fired himself as lead singer, and the group searched for someone new to front the band. Having recently reformed with singer Sydney Rohrs, at the helm, Portland dream-pop five-piece Sea Caves is set to release Across the Water, their follow-up to 2016’s easily likeable Bright Forest. Across the Water (out November 15) comes after two excellent singles, “Dart” and “Birds”—and the rest of the album is just as pleasant. The 10-track project embraces change in spite of the inevitable discomfort that typically accompanies it. (Sat Nov 16, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $10) JENNI MOORE

    Ulthar, Tithe, Hungers
    Oakland’s Ulthar are the musical equivalent of some ethereal being from an H.P. Lovecraft story; a grotesque sin against nature, dripping goo from its unreasonable amount of appendages and eyeballs, handily exposing mankind’s flaws with its ancient knowledge and biological superiority. Ulthar is scathing, ever dissonant, and, depending on which side of the creature you’re hearing, straight death metal, black metal, or even crust. And wouldn’t you know it, upon further research, their lyrical themes are Lovecraft-inspired as well. Sound, meet context. The band formed in 2014, releasing their first full-length Cosmovore last year. Seeing as how this monster is in the early gestation period, you can expect Ulthar to get even stranger and more dangerous.

    Devon Welsh, Sorry Girls
    Devon Welsh’s voice is a little miracle, a consoling gift akin to dawn light streaming through a lover’s window or the smell of rain on hot concrete. It’s hard to describe how a voice like this echoes inside of the listener. It is a presence, not a force. And thank god. There is too much force in the world and not enough presence. There are too few subtle sharpenings of time and space, too few voices like Welsh’s, which seems more poured than pushed, something purified and released back into the world from which it came, where it will dirty itself once again. It is the sound of being alive inside a self that is inside something too huge to comprehend. (Sun Nov 17, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $12-14) CHRIS STAMM

    The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
    The 56-year-old Preservation Hall Jazz Band embodies the best of New Orleans’ slightly sloshy French Quarter: the music. A cornerstone of the city’s jazz scene, Preservation Hall’s upbeat, brassy tunes sound plucked from a Frenchmen Street second line procession. So It Is (2017), the septet’s second album containing all-original melodies, infuses the band’s historic jazz tunes with Afro-Cuban beats, adding to Preservation Hall’s magical ability to transform melodies into a layered history of New Orleans. Now the prolific band is touring in support of their new record A Tuba to Cuba, out on November 29. Their recent main-stage set at Pickathon was worthy of all the standing ovations, and their upcoming show, while indoors, should be just as marvelous.

Freedia is known for her high-energy live shows, and inviting a bunch of audience members on stage, where they can present their best twerking skills while Freedia hypes them up. Having toured with other contrasting acts like LCD Soundsystem and the Postal Service, Freedia’s current tour with roots rockers Low Cut Connie should come as no surprise.

Cher is a goddamn juggernaut of energy, hits, and sass that will outlast the final cockroach crawling on Earth after climate change has burned the rest of us to a crisp. She will rise out of whatever ashes are left, surrounded by sequined flames, looking FABULOUS, and rocketing into the stratosphere singing, “Do you BELIEVE in life after love?” And as she and her gorgeous contralto voice soars, hurtling headlong into space, she’ll still be tweeting sweet shit-talk at Donald Trump, and plotting her fifth comeback (YES, FIFTH—LOOK IT THE FUCK UP) eventually landing in some galaxy far, far away, ready to entertain and delight every person, alien, or thing that is lucky enough to be in her glorious path—just as she has for the past 44 years.

This is not a knock on band mastermind Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s boundary-nudging black metal. His compositions mess with the cloistered world of extreme music in rewarding ways, but they can be kind of a lot. Take this not as a warning but as a promise: Liturgy will push you past the line between too much and way too much, and you’ll definitely feel it in the morning.

    Anyone present at either of Julia Jacklin’s Pickathon performances this past summer (but especially her Treeline Stage set) are keenly aware of the Australian artist’s hypnotic stranglehold on timeless folk songwriting. Her 2019 sophomore record, Crushing, catapulted her into the echelon of Aussies/Kiwis apparently plotting to take over the singer/songwriter world (along with Courtney Barnett, Aldous Harding, and Stella Donnelly, to name a few). “Crushing” is a great descriptor for Jacklin’s easy-breezy pop tunes, too, like the driving, heavy-lidded “Head Alone” or the more raucous “Pressure to Party.” Give her a great welcome back to Oregon tonight in the cozy Aladdin.

Strangely, Cortini’s solo artistry is almost unheard of, which makes describing why you should see this show harder than normal. Cortini’s an artist who cares about his craft; every note is calculated, but only you can determine how they are deciphered. Attending a Cortini show almost feels intimate, but he is a master of tone and bass, so even when you feel alone, it will warm your soul to know that you aren’t.

    CRITIC’S PICK: Brittany Howard
    Brittany Howard has more than proven herself as a leader in the retro-soul movement. After two critically acclaimed albums with roots-rock band Alabama Shakes (2012’s Boys & Girls and 2015’s Grammy-winning Sound & Color), singer/songwriter Brittany Howard dropped her solo studio debut Jaime in September. On this new album, Howard has full artistic control and pushes the envelope of soul music with an authentic, modern angle that doesn’t shy away from the vulnerable or political. The stunning record is a testament to Howard’s expert vocal control, and its songs reveal that she’s done her fair share of soul-searching—where do I even start? Lead single “History Repeats” was already exceptional, but the vintage-sounding “Stay High” has become one of my favorite (and most applicable) love songs of 2019. (Howard also recently released a gorgeous video of her performing a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in a rural New Mexico setting, and it’s a master class in musicianship.) Other highlights include... the entire fucking thing, but especially “He Loves Me,” “Goat Head,” the weary “13th Century Metal,” and “Georgia.” As Howard explained during her recent performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, “Georgia” was written from “the perspective of being a little young Black gay girl having a crush on an older Black girl, and not knowing how to tell her, or what to say or how I was feeling.” The song starts with a sweetly sung chorus that repeats “I just want Georgia to notice me,” and then Howard opens each verse as if she’s addressing a letter to the titular character, crooning the familiar melody of “Georgia on My Mind” for just a moment. Howard’s careful and tender vocalizations beautifully express her feelings of uncertainty during the song’s climax: (“Is it unnatural?/Georgia, is it cool?/I wanna tell you that I love you”); but it’s the exquisite, mounting sound of organ keys and a swelling guitar solo that make the love confession song a full-blown masterpiece. From watching all the videos of her recent live sessions, it’s hard to determine whether Howard and her band sounds better live or recorded, but her upcoming gig at the Roseland will give Portlanders a chance to decide for themselves.

    The PPS engineering survey

     Cache   

    The most recent survey carried out by PPS on the views of a wide spectrum of engineers identified some serious concerns as well as some encouraging ones.

    Of these, the item that is reasonably positive is that 75% of the Engineers surveyed were confident about the future of their profession over the next five years, primarily due to expected financial viability and contributing to society. Of the 25% who were not inspired by the future, the most negative factor is the political climate.

    64% would encourage their children to study engineering, but 94% are concerned about the standards of maths and science at the tertiary level. The pessimistic 25% regard the lack of good jobs and retrenchments as the cause, and many are concerned that good Engineers are considering leaving the country.

    87% are worried by the brain drain on the profession, and 54% are considering emigrating, with politics being the main driver. Countries of choice are the USA and Australia. 65% of employers offer internships to graduates.

    Reasonably positive

    On the question as to whether the government is delivering on its promises to create infrastructure, 96% voted a solid no on this.

    According to the National Development plan, more efficient and competitive infrastructure is needed to meet the objective of the plan. By 2030 key services such as commercial transport, energy, telcoms and water has to be strengthened to ensure long term sustainability. 91% believe this will not be met.

     

    When we consider the skills and experience that are needed to design, build, operate and maintain infrastructure, the low level of confidence exhibited by this survey should be considered in a serious light by government as well as private developers. As to what factor would have the most impact on the profession over the next three years, the economy got the biggest vote at 62%.

     

    Investment savvy

     

    83% of engineers believed that they are investment savvy, but only 44% had an established plan in place and 51% had a combination of financial products, so only 5% have no structured financial plan in place. On work/life balance, 50% consider it as average while 33% said good and 13% said poor.

    Overall, what can we conclude from this survey? It is accrued from the top levels of the profession who give the government and policy a distinct negative vote. How else is the country going to tackle the challenge of economic growth with the belief that so much engineering talent is being misused?


              

    For whom the bell tolls…

     Cache   

    You are a Mechanical Engineer. You work in the South African industry. It would be hard to find any activity that is some way does have some connections with the South African mining industry. Connections take the form of user of the mined commodity, supplier of equipment, supplier of services, and ultimately has some dependence on the value that mining adds to the GDP of the country. If you are part of a consultancy, a project management group, a construction company, a financial group and countless businesses from large multi-million Rand organizations to SMEs, it is very likely you will have connections with the mining industry. Mining flows in the veins of South Africans and so it should. We have been told that, following a Citibank survey, we literally sit on an un-mined value of some $2.5 trillion in commodities. The largest in the world.

    Just what did we do with this asset that has been given to us for free and left to our collective responsibility as a result of our being the residents and citizens of the country? The early pioneers started out bravely, successfully investing money, technology, hard work and facing unprecedented risk head-on to build and place South Africa at the top of the gold and diamond production world-wide. We have some 80% of the world’s known platinum ore and a good deal of most of the others. We pioneered the mining of high-ash content coal and assisted in the design and development of boilers that can burn it effectively and efficiently to evolve some of the best and most admired and low cost six pack power stations in the world that supported the mining industry. In the early nineties we had some 800 high tech researchers across the board tackling challenges in the mining industry. We thankfully still have a flourishing mining supply industry that designs and builds bespoke equipment to service the industry here and internationally. We had the best Mining Engineers in the world, lots of them, and the older ones mentored the younger ones as a matter of course. We were King of that shining castle.

    Take a snapshot today. What comes to mind? Marikana, closed platinum shafts, strikes, poor worker living conditions, reducing productivity, rapidly rising input costs, electricity prices rising at a rate to not only render a lot of mining uneconomic, but a lot of industry as well. We have dropped in the league of gold mining countries from first to fifth. Where are many of our talented mining resources? They are now running the mining industries in Australia, Canada, South America and Central Africa. Our research group has dropped by a factor of ten. International investors are openly advising that we do not really feature on their screens at present: the unchecked talk of nationalization, the regulatory confusion created by the MPRDA and SIMS reports has taken its toll. Perceptions are real, not imaginary as the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) seems to think.

    In my book, if the rule applies that those who set the rules and call the shots must be accountable, then that lies fair and square with the DMR. It is not surprising that we see these debacles in the mining, energy, education, health, security and infrastructure functions in South Africa. When the goal is political power at all costs ably assisted by inexperience and an illiterate and innumerate voter support base, then do not be surprised when a competitive nation declines to mediocrity.

    If anyone can propose a solution to extricate ourselves from this mess and turn ourselves up again, then we need all the help we can get. Otherwise the bell tolls for thee.


              

    The crucial importance of the mining industry

     Cache   

    Most commentaries on the status of the mining industry in South Africa refer to the decline in our rankings within the international comparisons. Mining is essentially the industry that developed the SA economy and which spawned the support industries that provided the equipment and services.

    Our unique Government Certificate of Competency evolved from the early 1900s to develop safer working conditions and improved skills for the activities of the mining industry. A recent international survey ranked SA at the top of the list for the value of minerals in the ground at the awesome figure of R2,5 trillion, well ahead of Russia in second place. With such credentials we have, however, declined in our competitiveness as growth markets have increased the demand for resources. We effectively lost out on participating in the last resources boom that witnessed countries such as Australia, Canada, many in Africa north of us and many in South America actively rise in the provider stakes. Various reasons are debated for this, but the most frequently identified are poor and slow policy making, the references to nationalization, the reduction in our capacity for research and development and the accompanied loss of experienced skills. In more recent times, the sudden increase in energy costs and industrial strike action have added to the reversal in our competitiveness.

    In September the next Electra Mining exhibition will be held which is one of the largest of its type internationally, and which from all accounts, will be well supported. In particular the action in Africa north of us is significant and we have seen many of our project management, design and construction skills moving to manage these northern projects. Some of our EPCM companies have such projects that make up the bulk of their order book. Further afield, estimates put the human resources running the Australian mining industry to be over 50% of South African origin.

    With the slump in the platinum price which has placed a number of mines on a caretaker basis or a scramble to try and manage with fewer contracted resources, can the stakeholders, being investors, government, and the mining industry address the skills issues that are even in the present circumstances in short supply? Most of those with whom I interact express the fear about what are we going to do when the lights really come on again - once the European and American recessionary conditions change and the world demand for minerals resumes?

    Reports on the diminished R&D capacity and skills in the research establishments, that in the 80s and early 90s were world leaders in mining research and development, are of great concern as the ability to innovate disappears. Clearly mining activity also depends on reliable infrastructure and good logistics which are not well positioned either at present.

    In the vein of " ‘n boer maak a plan” in which South Africans have shown an adept ability, can we tackle this huge challenge and get our competitiveness on the rise? It cannot be beyond our ability and willingness to do some serious mining skills development together with that needed across the whole engineering domain. It is time we saw some next steps in the action territory after the publication of the diagnostic report of the National Planning Commission. It could be in danger of becoming another book shelf study.

    We really need to curtail our incessant, negative outlook on this state of affairs and try to get collective, positive group action to turn our mining status around. However, from where will this be triggered and what will catalyze the process?

    Perhaps the Electra Mining event could energise some reality here. The SAIMechE is to facilitate the first of its Soap Box sessions which will be interesting to watch. Let’s hope the speakers will be able to address some of these issues and spawn some industry enthusiasm to make things happen. One can safely say that the survival of South Africa depends on it.



              

    Is the modern economy a giant pyramid scheme?

     Cache   

    Think about it. As a taxpayer and voter, you are promised by politicians that if you vote for them they will provide you with all sorts of benefits in exchange for your vote. You earn money in your job and pay tax to the government so that it has funds to provide you with the promised benefits: education for your children, health services, and infrastructure in the form of roads, municipal services, police services, judiciary, economic and fiscal responsibility to name some of them. The mix depends on the policies of each government. In SA you may only get the party’s tee shirt.

    Let’s take a look at our own situation in SA. We have what the population has been assured is the best constitution money can buy. If you look carefully you realise that in fact you cannot be assured that the person you vote for will represent you because the political party will decide who to appoint to that role. But let’s not get into politics; we have enough hot air on that topic to cause climate change. What we do witness is that the persons appointed to government at the top are very well paid and appear to earn a lot more than the delivery for which they are responsible. The rules set up by the government whether by statute or by practice enable this to happen. They could be said to be taking money from the down-line without providing the appropriate product in return. How does this differ from the structures of a pyramid scheme? There is no observable exchange of value.

    Let’s rather look at what happens to a lot of the money that feeds upwards to the top both via taxes as well as the flow of money to the providers of many near monopolistic trade structures. It seems fairly well documented globally that the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer. This is happening whether one is in a typically western capitalistic economy or a socialist economy as we can observe in both the USA and Europe. Think of the outcome of the credit crisis: many top bankers and investors made huge and obscene amounts of money via a system they developed to get the money out of the general population. The overwhelming common factor behind all these processes is that money is flowing up to the top without the commensurate product or service flowing back down accompanied by broken assurances that all will benefit from the process. Does the tendency for economies to exhibit this shifting of the wealth upwards then correlate to the emergence of large monopolistic businesses and over-indulgent government, and to the impact of the lack of bank credit to the small business and individual that were, and are, so affected by the credit crisis? It is otherwise commonly called greed.

    It is interesting to note that in Australia that most of the millionaires are from the small, entrepreneurial business sector and that the impact of the credit crisis was minimal on that country. The chances of the big banks, financial institutions and businesses taking risks with others’ money was clearly lower. Is this a lesson to SA and the world at large to enable small business to thrive?

    If the poor continue to get poorer then there must at some stage be a situation where the inevitable happens: the pyramid scheme collapses, and many irate investors (read taxpayers and consumers) get active to ban the scheme.

    Where would engineering as a role fit into this? I do believe that in any engineering transaction which has an objective to create the built environment, the exchange of money for product is probably pretty reasonable. The product is evident, well defined, built to proven specifications by persons who are qualified and usually sufficiently experienced to do it right. When however I see evidence that the lawyers are likely to make more out of the renewable energy contracts than many of the Engineers involved, I wonder if that is contributing to the award of wealth without commensurate productivity. No names are mentioned in order to protect the guilty.


              

    That was the year that was

     Cache   

    An interesting year, that puts it mildly. How else would one describe a year where the global economy has the sign of regressing into a second recessionary phase, the USA and Europe playing dangerously close to debt collapse, the Arabian spring syndrome spreading globally, the biggest earthquake created Tsunami in our history with its subsequent nuclear event, an observable widening of the wealth gap both in SA and internationally, and our own political scenario showing quite clearly government capacity to do anything constructive is deteriorating further.

    Locally, from the perspective of engineering resources, a somewhat dichotomous situation exists. The scenario would be quite impossible to have envisaged let alone planned. Following what appears to be a world-wide trend, infrastructure in SA has been neglected, used and not maintained to the point where much of it must be in need of full replacement. A lot of the manufacturing industry is talking of reaching a point where SA appears to be de-industrialising, Eskom’s six packs under construction get later each month, and there is a "shortage” of skilled and experienced engineering resources. The use of the word shortage needs to be qualified as there are many retired or retrenched resources that are fully able to deliver but are overlooked for social or customary reasons of age. Adequate training up of new resources is dismal. The well used metric of Engineers per million head of population must make some sense as we are in the lowest league here and I guess it is both confirmed and its impact evident in the abysmal lack of technical resources in government, provincial and municipal structures. If one is envisaging a turnaround in infrastructure status, then where are the resources to achieve this going to come from? Who is going to be acting in the role of the Owner’s Team for major infrastructure projects?


    PPS recently published a finding that some 600 professionals were leaving SA a month, many of these engineering resources essential to build our own environment. Included in these are mining and project management skills that are leaving our commodities industry to boost those in Australia, Canada and South America in particular. With an estimated R2,5 trillion of mining wealth buried in our SA earth awaiting recovery and even beneficiation, this loss is almost self inflicted damage. If government does not sort out the noise on the nationalization issue, more losses will occur through the realization that it will seriously deplete the mining industry and expand unemployment.

    We are producing many graduate Engineers, Technologists and Technicians that are unable to usefully progress into positions where they are trained and mentored to become competent and productive resources. Unless the recent strategic advisory and action committees being developed by ECSA together with the Voluntary Engineering Associations are able to progress rapidly to a point of active execution, the situation will simply deteriorate further. This requires the essential and proper use of the skills development levies paid to the national skills fund that have accumulated and not been used through sheer bureaucratic lack of vision and mismanagement. Herein lies the opportunity for many retired or semi-retired engineering resources to participate on a paid basis as mentors in properly managed, competency-based outcomes training and development programmes.

    Engineering resources remuneration levels are rising. Supply and demand is driving this as particular positions become seriously underprovided with candidate options. How should a business that requires the right people in the right place at the right time go about recruiting resources? When supply is erratic or constrained, then focus on the constraint and subordinate other activities to it. Find the buffers to protect the constraint from starvation or blockage. A supply buffer will be the provider who has access to the best database and network of resources and who can filter out the signal from the noise of the conventional practice of multiple inappropriate CVs from multiple providers all drawing from the same pool. Change HR’s customary structures. Engineering business should look hard at their people procurement practices.


              

    The mad scramble is on again (Mar 2011)

     Cache   

    It may be safe to announce that the recession insofar as the planning and startup of big projects is over, and this is particularly so in the mining industry. Driven by commodities demand, it is evident by the day that the scramble for the limited capacity of engineering resources with experience in mining and mining engineering is on again. And it is not only in South Africa. Africa, South America, Australia are all in the market seeking the whole range of resources needed for mining projects. Traditionally, the next actions in the supply chain are the manufacturers, fabricators and suppliers of equipment and services. Very good for growth and employment generally. Accompanying all this however will be the pain of finding the right resources and the escalation in remuneration demands across the board. For Engineers, it is your time in the sun.

    It represents an odd but understandable dichotomy: we have a serious unemployment problem with little realism prevailing as to how to solve it, mainly because it is the creation of historical stupidity in skills development only exceeded by the stupidity of the belief that we suddenly "create jobs by government decree”. But we have a serious shortage of the right skills and experience. The demographics show that the bulk of the best skills in the project development industry are in the age group 50 upwards right into the 70s. Whilst this phenomenon is replicated to a degree elsewhere in world, it is particularly skewed here in SA by the active "expulsion” of a lot of our talent through affirmative action. Studies show that many of the eligible emigration group, below 45 years of age, have readily left SA for options in foreign lands. A South African is the CEO of BHP Billiton in Australia and there are many SA's in the ranks of the engineering resources right throughout that company. The same applies to many other mining companies in other parts of the world.

    The young feedstock to the industry is relatively inexperienced and the problem is that the mentoring capacity is so thin that this is almost non-existent. While local mining is growing, faster development is taking place outside SA, and economists that follow the trends are concerned that SAs' mining regulations, talk of nationalization, nepotism in the ranks etc is diverting investment elsewhere. BHP Billiton has $80 billion to invest in new ventures: none of it is going to SA new mining projects because it considers there are lower risk levels elsewhere.

    Where does all this leave us? For my money, living in the engineering resources supply business daily, it needs some concerted and urgent action, not more conferences and debates. Firstly, the practical training and development of graduate engineering resources (Engineers, Technologists and Technicians of all disciplines) need to be able to engage in structured and well managed training schemes including time (6 months) in an engineering boot camp facility that will teach trainees the essential competencies and practicalities of (mechanical) engineering at the pit-face so to speak. Then 2 to 3 years in a structured and fund assisted professional development programme in industry. The PDP now being developed and honed by SAIMechE will be ideal, as it will focus on the 11 competencies required for registration with ECSA and align with the legalisation of identification of engineering work. Industry has to come to the party with proper supervision of the trainees.

    As for funding, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. It appears (but do not hold your breath) that NSF funding for engineering training may shortly be available in realistically large quanta. The PDP committee will have met with other parties by the time this article is published and we can only hope that this expectation will be met.

    Insofar as training and development of engineering resources is concerned, it is essential that this be provided and managed via the profession and the active involvement of the Voluntary Associations with funded programmes and mentorships. To the government, I say with confidence, we have the tools; provide the funds now seriously from the skills levy to let us do the job.


              

    Our World after the World Cup (Aug 2010)

     Cache   

    My greatest hope is that the evident, positive and extraordinary atmosphere, energy charge and positive outlook that have emerged as a result of the way we staged the World Cup will serve to enable us to believe in ourselves and our abilities to reach the best standards for SA. Every citizen, and in our case, every engineering resource, has the opportunity and an obligation do something to get a new show on the road. We simply must not fall into a state of post-party hangover or depression, or back to business as usual.

    I am personally tired of observing and commenting on so much of our past failures in this leader column. How many of them are actually easily enabled to be turned around and developed for the benefit of SA citizens? If we can project manage the WC with all its first-time challenges, why can't we get the relatively straight forward function of municipal service delivery right? The root cause is clear. Get rid of lousy, incompetent, unqualified, corrupt management; fire the officials who seem incapable of delivering, and are misusing funds. No more paid suspension and jobs for pals. But let's do it. Time to get private power producers going. Time to get the Acts amended that mess our potential to exploit our minerals. Time to get effective engineering training going. Get measures agreed to radically reduce the massive unemployment level. We will go bankrupt at the rate we pay more receivers of social benefits than have jobs. Reducing unemployment is our biggest challenge. Here is a thought, though. It comes from a recent SAIEE Presidential address.

    "If one is looking for modern examples of the good old fashioned engineering approach to economic development, one needs to look to the East. When President Hu of China appointed his first cabinet in 2002, every one of them was an Engineer. Perhaps this in part explains China's ongoing extraordinary economic growth and industrialization”.

    So, Members, how shall we go for the world cup in transforming a system that has been taking us for a ride for too long? A very positive development has just been announced and which exemplifies the ability of a lot of adversarial parties to get together and formulate a new deal all with a common goal. This is the recent mining commitment plan which followed the Citibank International report that SA sits on the most valuable mineral wealth in the world by far, streaks ahead of Russia and Australia in second and third places. We have R18 Trillion in an un-mined prize waiting for initiative, co-operation, funding, innovation, supporting infrastructure, skills development, employment and all the other benefits of a good, long term plan. Even Malema should be excited. It noticeably seems however to have eluded the government's own planning commission, but we all know how evident that has been.

    Power and energy. Big plans now in hand for private power generation, and additionally an exciting development in advanced waste coal carbon combustion technology with almost no carbon footprint. Unless co-generation gets going, then any major mining and industrial initiatives will not have the power due to Eskom's limitations.

    Can we catalyse the World Cup energy into ongoing action? It is up to everyone to make it happen. Tourism just has to escalate, which means major options for the service industry. I heard countless comments from foreign visitors at Cape Town's V& A waterfront at the semi-final on a beautiful evening that it must be the best all-round place for a World Cup.

    The new SAIMechE website has the functions to enable interaction and debate. Can this connectivity and our a new feeling of optimism improve our collective advance into getting Engineers into the main arena? Sceptics, step aside. Let the game begin.

    El Toyota Yaris GR4 verá la luz en el Rally de Australia del WRC

     Cache   

    El Rally RACC de Catalunya fue el lugar elegido por Toyota Gazoo Racing para presentar su equipo oficial para el Dakar 2020, estructura con la que debutará Fernando Alonso en el raid más duro del mundo. Durante este acto, Akio Toyoda mandó un mensaje en forma de vídeo a los pilotos del equipo, grabación en la que se pudo ver un misterioso prototipo del Toyota Yaris cargado de camuflaje. Un vehículo de rallies con configuración de tierra que no respondía a ninguno de los coches que tiene la marca actualmente en competición.

    Un misterio que parece tener solución con el estreno del Toyota Yaris GR4. El último vehículo de competición de la marca verá la luz en el Rally de Australia, última cita del WRC en este 2019. Será en este escenario en el que se descubran todos los secretos que todavía esconde este prototipo, que no son pocos. No obstante, partiendo de la base de que se trata de un vehículo de rallies, todavía se antoja difícil situar este prototipo en un marco normativo concreto.

    El Toyota Yaris GR4 verá la luz en el Rally de Australia del WRCEl Toyota GT86 CS-R3 es el único vehículo 'carreras-cliente' de rallies que Toyota tiene en la actualidad.

    Con el teaser publicado por la marca sí se puede adelantar que el Toyota Yaris GR4 está basado en el nuevo Yaris 2020. Los pilotos traseros son la mejor muestra de que estamos ante un vehículo de competición basado en la última generación del vehículo del segmento B de la firma japonesa. Más allá de este punto, su voluminosa carrocería y el ancho de vías que se le intuye a este prototipo parecen colocar al Yaris GR4 a la altura de otros vehículos R4 como el propio Etios R4, vehículo que ha sido desarrollado y homologado a partir del kit FIA R4 que diseñó Oreca.

    En la actualidad Toyota tiene dos modelos R4 de rallies, si bien ambos han nacido a partir de iniciativas privadas no asociadas a la marca. Además del referido Toyota Etios R4, existe un Toyota Yaris R4 basado en la actual generación del modelo, versión que ha sido desarrollada por Evolve Motorsport. Por esta razón, un Toyota Yaris R4 'pata negra' tiene mucho sentido, más si cabe cuando el Toyota GT86 CS-R3 es el único vehículo 'carreras-cliente' de rallies que tiene la marca. De hecho, es el único R3 de tracción trasera disponible en el mercado.

    Habrá que esperar hasta el Rally de Australia para conocer todos los detalles que rodean al Yaris GR4, si bien parece descartado que este proyecto esté vinculado al Yaris R5 que la marca planea desarrollar sobre la base del nuevo Toyota Yaris y que contaría con un motor de 1.6 litros tricilíndrico, solución por la que ningún fabricante ha optado. De hecho, este proyecto no tiene todavía una fecha concreta de ejecución, pese a que se dibuja como pilar fundamental en el programa 'carreras-cliente' de Toyota Gazoo Racing en el WRC.

    Elfyn Evans gana enteros para sustituir a Ott Tänak en Toyota

     Cache   
    Elfyn Evans gana enteros para sustituir a Ott Tänak en ToyotaElfyn Evans ha sumado dos podios en 2019 y puede acabar cuarto del Mundial a pesar de ser baja en tres rallies por lesión.

    Los movimientos han comenzado a sucederse en el particular 'juego' que es la 'silly season' del WRC. El fichaje de Ott Tänak por Hyundai ha desatado el efecto dominó, obligando a Toyota Gazoo Racing a 'salir' al mercado en busca de un piloto de garantías que pueda ocupar el sitio del estonio, vigente campeón del mundo. El nombre de Sébastien Ogier fue el primero en salir a la palestra por sus desavenencias con Citroën y, sin embargo, parece que el equipo dirigido por Tommi Mäkinen ha puesto su radar en otro objetivo. Este piloto tiene nombre y apellidos y se trata de Elfyn Evans.

    No obstante, distintos medios británicos afirman que Elfyn Evans ha estado en las instalaciones de Toyota Gazoo Racing en Finlandia en la última semana. Pese a que esta oportuna visita no tiene que ser sinónimo de un posible fichaje por Toyota, lo cierto es que contratar al piloto galés se antoja como una de las pocas opciones viables en un mercado con opciones limitadas. Toyota ya sabe lo que es 'pescar' en M-Sport y el galés ha sido de los más fiables y consistentes del 'segundo grupo' de pilotos que se ha formado por detrás de los tres primeros espadas del campeonato.

    De hecho, Elfyn Evans tiene en su mano en el Rally de Australia terminar en cuarta posición del campeonato, todo tras sumar dos podios y terminar dentro del 'top 5' en casi todos los rallies en los que ha tomado parte. Un resultado muy a tener en cuenta ya que, a diferencia de algunos de sus rivales por ocupar este puesto, Elfyn no ha podido disputar la temporada al completo. De hecho, Evans se perdió los rallies de Finlandia, Alemania y Turquía por una inoportuna lesión, hecho que pone aún más de relieve el desempeño que ha mostrado a lo largo de todo el año.

    Trini artist for Atlanta exhibition

     Cache   

    THE WORK of Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie has been recognised with an award in Atlanta, Georgia, US, and will also be displayed this month in the Atlanta Mayor's Gallery.

    McKenzie, who is based in Atlanta, recently won the 2019 I am Black, I am Power, Art and Creativity award from the Black People United Global Network with "Black" being an acronym for Beautiful Living Ancestors Controlling Kingdoms Irreplaceable Amazing Melanin.

    The founder and CEO of Black People United Global Network, Dr Angela Harris, said the body, which was founded in December 2015, seeks to "strategically honour people of all nationalities and religions in the black race from all around the world.

    "Our mission is to collectively come together under one roof to give recognition to well-deserving individuals who have gone above and beyond to help the relevancy of our image as a race to have a positive influence on our families, communities and business through their God-given gifts and talents."

    [caption id="attachment_794566" align="alignnone" width="742"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie with her award I am Black, I am Power, I am Creativity from the Black People United Network with a portrait of the group's CEO and founder Dr Angela Harris. -[/caption]

    McKenzie told Newsday via e-mail that she was nominated anonymously for the award.

    "I felt honoured to be recognised amongst thousands of artists in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. I always work hard towards perfecting my craft and achieving my goals. Receiving this award brought great fulfilment and pride to be able to represent my country internationally in the arts."

    McKenzie's work was also selected by the mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, to be exhibited at the Mayor's Gallery, City Hall, Atlanta, from November 14- January 4 in a dual exhibition called SANKOFA (go back and get it).

    "I'm very excited to be given this amazing opportunity."

    The exhibit will feature ten pieces from McKenzie of mixed media including glass, acrylic, resin, glitter and cowrie shells. She said her new, unique style is giving her the breakthrough, "as no one is doing it in Georgia."

    [caption id="attachment_794568" align="alignnone" width="481"] The piece I Am by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

    Atlanta's Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), in an online post, announced the exhibition by McKenzie and Ghana-born artist Alfred Addo. The joint exhibition commemorates the ideas embodied in Ghana’s Year of Return, a reflection on the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans' arrival in Jamestown, Virginia.

    Addo was born to a family of artists and has been exposed to art since infancy. OCA noted his primary inspiration came from his father, who exhibited his work regularly and challenged Addo to produce unique artwork.

    "Although Addo was passionate about art, he also possessed a keen interest in the physical sciences, a field he found satisfyingly challenging. He was torn between going to college to study medicine and pursuing his passion to be a professional artist. In the end, he chose to follow his passion and pursue art full-time.

    [caption id="attachment_794567" align="alignnone" width="452"] The piece is titled Unchained Love by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

    "Since then, Addo has specialised in sculpture as his core medium. Interestingly, his physical science background led him to experiment with different materials, including sawdust, which he played with as a child in the sawmill where his father bought and cut wood for his sculptures. Naturally, Addo grew up loving this medium and decided to make it the main material he uses in all his artwork. Passionate about the sustainability of the earth, Addo perfected the method of recycling sawdust and waste materials to create various types of sculptures and relief works."

    Addo has successfully participated in many international art exhibitions in places including Johannesburg, Cape Town, New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Miami, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Atlanta, San Diego, California, Martha’s Vineyard and in his home city Accra, Ghana.

    OCA described McKenzie as "a true island girl" who comes from one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world, TT, and her natural aptitude for creativity was nurtured at an early age because of her family’s involvement in the nation’s world-famous Carnival.

    "McKenzie’s fascination with contrast, textures, and fabrics was the fuel behind her kaleidoscope-like pieces. She uniquely infused glass, acrylic, and other materials on varying canvas, which propelled her into achieving a viable international clientèle."

    OCA noted throughout her young career, she has exhibited works in multiple nations including TT and neighbouring Caribbean islands. Her art has also been exhibited in New York, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, London and Australia.

    [caption id="attachment_794569" align="alignnone" width="638"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

    In 2013, after losing her job in event marketing, McKenzie pursued her passion for art and became a full-time artist, with clients in the US and Europe. As a full-time artist, she does commissioned pieces where people contact her via e-mail or on her website and let her know what they want, whether it is for their homes or businesses.

    Her first exhibition, Pieces of Me, was held in Trinidad in 2013 and featured 25 pieces about her and life experiences, including first love and first disappointment.

    McKenzie has clients from countries such as the US, Sweden, England, Scotland and TT. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas or wood board. Her dream is to have her pieces featured in the set decoration of successful television shows and box office movies and showcased all over the world.

    To see more of McKenzie’s work visit her Instagram @andreas.heart and her art page on Facebook at Andrea’s Unique Art.

    墨爾本媒體:為什麼希臘裔澳洲人喜歡這種特殊的打坐方式

     Cache   
    墨爾本媒體報道希臘裔法輪功學員比爾·托多里的修煉故事(網站截圖) 【希望之聲2019年11月6日】(本臺記者李靜蘭綜合報導)澳洲墨爾本希臘社區最大的媒體NeosKosmos,日前在其報紙和網站的健康欄目報道了希臘裔法輪功學員比爾·托多里(Bill Thodori)的修煉故事,題目是:“為什麼希臘裔澳洲人喜歡這種特殊的打坐方式”(Find out why Greek Australians are flocking to this special form of meditation)。 Neos Kosmos的報道中敘述:2002年,20多歲的比爾·托多里(Bill Thodori)從希臘移民到澳大利亞後不久,發現自己的健康突然崩潰了。在出現連續幾周的頭暈目眩癥狀之後,又出現連續幾個月不間斷的暈眩,他最終決定去看家庭醫生。隨後他被推薦給很多專家,並進行了一系列檢查,但是最終診斷結果都是身體一切正常。然而不久之後,嚴重的暈眩發作迫使比爾放棄了工作。 比爾想起了在悉尼認識的一位希臘同鄉——法輪功學者安東尼(Antoni),於是他在電話中向安東尼傾訴了幾個月來經歷的病痛折磨。安東尼分享了自己修煉法輪大法(法輪功)的體會,並鼓勵比爾嘗試。 比爾欣喜地說:“不到一個月,我的所有癥狀都消失了。”法輪功神奇的功效讓比爾折服。至今比爾修煉法輪大法已經超過17年,健康快樂,妻子和相繼誕生的兩個女兒都走入法輪功的修煉,一家四口幸福美滿。 報道中說:法輪大法,又稱法輪功,是一種古老的氣功修煉方法,主要是通過打坐和五套功法改善身心。法輪大法是由李洪志先生在中國創立的,於1992年才開始廣泛的介紹給民眾,然而,已經在世界各地迅速傳播,在包括澳洲和希臘在內的60多個國家裡廣受歡迎。 雖然不是宗教,但法輪功確有精神修煉原則和信仰。不僅對身體健康有益,正如比爾等許多人所分享的那樣:改善了健康狀況、使頭腦清晰、還能解除精神壓力,而且通過修煉提升道德品質,還能使人獲得智慧和啟發。法輪大法的三個主要原則是“真、善、忍”,鼓勵修煉者在日常生活中按照這些原則去做。 報道中介紹:(法輪大法)兩部主要書籍是《法輪功》和《轉法輪》,後者已被翻譯成超過25種語言,包括英語和希臘語。學煉法輪大法是完全免費的,甚至不需要捐贈。比爾是周末費茨羅伊公園(Fitzroy Gardens)煉功點的常客,這樣的煉功點遍布全澳各地。如果天氣等原因導致戶外煉功不方便,人們可在家中煉功,網上也有大量免費的書籍等資料可指導修煉。 由於法輪功不是一個組織,因此您無需註冊自己的名字;在煉功點學或參加一個教功班,如果覺得好,可隨時回來學煉。 報道中提到:儘管這種修煉方法來自中國,但各種文化背景的人們都對這種方法產生了興趣。比爾是墨爾本眾多希臘裔法輪功學員之一。比爾說:“就像古希臘人所說的那樣,‘擁有健康的心靈,就擁有健康的身體’(Healthy mind,healthy body)。我相信思想能起很大的作用、主導的作用。心存真善忍,不斷煉功、打坐,能使人保持內心平靜,一切都變的更祥和快樂。” 比爾說:在打坐中保持思想清凈對思維特別活躍的人士來說有時候的確構成挑戰,但只需保持恆心,每天堅持煉功,人人都可以做到。 比爾說:除了身體恢復健康,他還見證了自己生活中各個方面的積極變化,從與家人和朋友的關係到工作環境,甚至讓他戒除了駕車時經常超速、易怒的毛病。“修煉後,駕車時內心變的非常平靜。從A地到B地,保持冷靜的心態,雖然花了更長的時間,但感覺時間過得很快。” 比爾的兩個孩子分別為12歲和10歲,比爾說:“我有兩個孩子,老實說,有時候看社會新聞真讓人恐懼。但法輪大法(教人向善)帶給人希望。”這也是比爾為什麼如此熱衷於傳播有關法輪大法消息的原因。 “法輪功提升道德品質,基於真善忍原則,還有什麼比這個更好的道德準則呢?”比爾說:“我遇到的每個人都很好奇,問我義務傳播法輪功如何能做到?我的回答是,因為有好東西就應該無私的分享,我是發自內心希望幫到社區的民眾。” 墨爾本希臘社區最大媒體Neos Kosmos在該報道的最後推薦:如想了解更多詳情可訪問法輪功澳洲網http://falunau.org/。

    인도네시아-호주 경제동반자협정(IA‑CEPA) 발효 눈앞

     Cache   
     

    - 호주 농축산물 교역 증가 기대, 대인도네시아 투자 기회 확대 전망 -  

    - 호주-인도네시아 정상회담 긍정적, 가까운 시일 내 FTA 협정 발효 예상 -

     

     

     

    □ 자유무역협정 주요 내용

     

      ㅇ 인도네시아-호주 경제동반자협정 배경 및 전망

        - 2007 8월 호주와 인도네시아는 양국 간 자유무역협정(FTA)을 위한 공동 타당성 조사에 착수했으며, 2009 4월에 연구가 완료됨.

        - 2010년 호주 줄리아 길라드(Julia Gillard) 총리와 인도네시아 수실로 밤방 유도요노(Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) 대통령을 통해 시작된 자유무역협정 협상을 시작으로 지난 8년간의 지속적인 협의 및 타진을 통해 20193 4일 두 국가는 인도네시아-호주 경제동반자 정((Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, IA‑CEPA)에 서명했음.

        - 한편 지난 2019 10 20일 호주 스콧 모리슨(Scott Morrison) 총리가 인도네시아 대통령 2기 취임식 축하를 위해 인도네시아를 방문했으며, 조코 위도도(Joko Widodo) 인도네시아 대통령과의 긍정적 정상회담을 통해 가까운 시일 내 FTA 협정이 발효될 것으로 기대되고 있음.

        - 또한 호주 정부가 야당에서 요구한 FTA 관련 수정안 중 상당 부분을 수용해 지난 10월 21 FTA 비준안이 하원에서 통과됐고 11월 상원에서도 무탈한 통과가 예상되고 있음.

     

      ㅇ 상품 무역 부문

        - 인도네시아로 수출되는 호주 원산지 상품의 99% 이상이 2020년까지 면세 또는 상당히 개선된 관세를 적용받도록 조정될 예정임. 이는 현재 적용되고 있는 아세안-호주-뉴질랜드 자유무역협정(ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand) 85%보다 높은 수준임.

        - 인도네시아는 호주산 송아지, 냉동 쇠고기, 양고기, 곡물사료, 강판 코일, 감귤류, 당근 및 감자 등의 주요 상품에 대해 수입 허가 자동 발급을 보장하기로 함.

    I spent 96 hours on a train from Toronto to Vancouver, and crossing 4 time zones was more disorienting than I ever expected

     Cache   

    canada train route 2x1

    • I took a train from Toronto to Vancouver and passed through four time zones along the way, which ended up being the most challenging part of the entire experience.
    • The train had no WiFi and very little cell service, so my iPhone couldn't always adjust to the local time. 
    • Before going on the trip, I totally underestimated how much of a struggle this would be.
    • Not only would I confuse the hours throughout the day, but my morning alarms weren't calibrated correctly, and I felt consistently disoriented.
    • For anyone traveling across time zones on the ground, I would recommend mapping out the route ahead of time and remaining vigilant about changing wristwatches and digital clocks. 
    • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    I'm an airplane person. Getting to and being in an airport stresses me out to a gut-wrenching extent, but I don't particularly have a fear of flying. It gets me to where I need to be in a timely fashion — usually — and requires little to no adjustments while in-transit. That's why, whenever I travel, I prefer to take a plane. 

    But, I recently rode VIA Rail's The Canadian — an old-school yet partially-renovated sleeper train — across Canada on the company's Great Western Way route. I traveled across the country from east to west, boarding the train in Toronto and arriving four days later in Vancouver.

    On the trip, I experienced a total of four different time zones, and while I thoroughly enjoyed the journey, these time zone changes were way more disorienting than I could have ever expected.

    The effects left me feeling confused and frustrated quite often, and knowing what I know now, I'd definitely prepare for the trip differently next time. 

    It wasn't just about adjusting my watch

    train bed the canadian

    Some Canadian trains, like The Rocky Mountaineer, only move during the day. But The Canadian travels through the night, which means sometimes we crossed time zones while we were sleeping, and other times we crossed them in the middle of the day. I didn't know when the time changes were coming, and it was jarring every time they did.

    Meals were served in the dining car on-board the train. Breakfast was from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., brunch from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and dinner seatings happened as early as 5:30 p.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m. All schedules were according to local time, so if we crossed a time zone at 4 p.m., and I didn't adjust my watch, I would be an hour off when it came to figuring out dinner time. 

    Also, I wear a wristwatch, so I make the manual adjustment when traveling. Regardless of my watch, though, my iPhone will typically automatically adjust to display the accurate time for wherever I am — ah, technology. 

    But what I didn't realize was that my iPhone requires a cellular connection in order to adjust its timing automatically — the train had no WiFi, and we had little to no cell service along the rural route. That meant my phone — which was set to automatically adjust to time zones — changed inconsistently. My computer didn't adjust at all because it wasn't set up to work offline with cellular data.

    By the middle of the trip, I had absolutely no idea what time it was, and I felt like I was in this weird time warp with no bearings to grab hold of. It was hard to even use the sun as a guide because it was extremely cloudy. 

    Unlike at a hotel, passengers on The Canadian couldn't request a wake-up call via concierge, so I was in charge of setting my own alarm. That typically wouldn't be an issue, but accounting for a mid-sleep time zone change and a non-adjusting phone clock caused a huge mess of math calculations and incorrect alarms. I was permanently disoriented and frustrated by the inconsistency. 

    Our bodies crave consistency, and time change can mess with that

    sleeping air canada

    I've crossed multiple time zones in one trip before, but all while on a plane. That means time was kind of irrelevant as I passed through — flying from New York to California takes around six hours on a plane and spans four time zones, but I'd only change my watch upon landing. Even though I'm flying over multiple zones, I only have to adjust to one of them.

    On the train, though, I had to adjust every day — sometimes in the morning and sometimes in the middle of the day — and that really threw me off. 

    There were nights when I thought I was going to sleep at 1 a.m. but it was actually only 10 p.m., and mornings when I set an alarm for 6 a.m. but it actually went off at 4 a.m. It didn't ruin my experience on the train, but it did add to an already exhausting trip.

    Jet lag is something casual travelers joke about and try to conquer using tips and tricks that are about as helpful as the ones suggested for getting rid of hiccups — sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. But adjusting properly to time zones is actually really important for our health. 

    Insider reporter Jacob Shamsian broke down research showing that jet lag can actually trigger already-existing mental illness in travelers because of the way it messes with our circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythm refers to the way our bodies and minds behave as they follow a daily schedule, according to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

    While the direction of travel has different effects on our internal clocks and traveling east to west is more adjustment-friendly since we theoretically gain time, any change in time zone can affect travelers.

    It's so important to prep for time changes that even Qantas is testing out ways to combat jet lag on its new flights from New York to Sydney, Australia. 

    But you can beat the time warp

    time_change_2

    A fellow traveler showed me how to take my phone off of the automatic setting — he walked me through setting up my clock manually for each time zone. But the issue there was that when we didn't have any cellular connection, I wasn't able to search for and connect to the local time zone. It seemed like a fix, but it didn't really work.

    Knowing what I do now about how disorienting and confusing this part of the train experience was for me and other travelers I spoke with, I would definitely recommend planning ahead. 

    If you're looking into an on-the-ground trip that crosses time zones, I would suggest you map out all of the time borders along the way. This way, you'll know exactly when and where to expect the change. I think it would be helpful to bring along a manual wristwatch, and I'd caution you to stay adamant about changing it every time you enter a new zone. 

    map the canadian

    Looking back on my own trip, I wish I had printed out a map ahead of time and set up my phone to not make any adjustments at all — this way I would have known that my device was always on Toronto time and I could just do the math if needed. I'd suggest this for anyone making the cross-country train journey.

    Detransitioning

     Cache   

    In one sense very little of what Andrew Sullivan says about transgenders detransitioning is new. I have said as much for as long as I have been following the public debate. Yet, it matters that another influential intellectual is willing to denounce the transgender rights movement for the moral abomination that it is. Mutilating children under the aegis of science is very bad indeed. It needs to be stopped. Perhaps Sullivan’s opinion will encourage others to shed some light on the subject.

    As he puts it, the current social contagion seems mostly to be encouraging young women to transition. It encourages them to see themselves as male and to start hormone therapy. With the aid of organizations like Planned Parenthood they have little difficulty getting the right prescriptions.

    Obviously, the treatments are a medical horror. When these young women wake up and discover that they are not really  men, then they face another horror, detransitioning.

    Sullivan writes:

    They’re women who, in their teens, realized that they were actually men, socially transitioned to the other sex, and then underwent hormone therapy to change their bodies, faces, and voices to become transgender men. After varying amounts of time, however, they all realized they had made a big mistake, stopped testosterone therapy, and “detransitioned” back to being who they were before. They are now embarrassed, they say, but not ashamed. “I don’t identify as anything,” one of them told me. “I just have two X chromosomes in the bag.”

    Of course, they did not realize anything of the sort. They were brainwashed into believing something that defied reality. As for being embarrassed, but not ashamed, it’s a distinction without a difference. Embarrassment is simply a milder form of shame.

    The medical consequences of their decisions are none too pretty:

    These women live every day with the consequences of their decision: tenacious facial hair (one has to shave every three days) and body hair, deeper voices, permanently enlarged clitorises. They also suffer from the effects of “binding,” i.e. wearing a breast corset of sorts, to flatten their chests, so they can pass more easily as men. “I have back issues, lower lung capacity, and permanent dents around my shoulders,” one told me. “Every now and again, I have to push a rib back in to breathe,” another recounts. “I have permanent bruising,” another explains. “Serious back issues,” says another, who cannot carry a backpack for long without pain. “We get ‘sir’ed at Dunkin’ Donuts every time,” one joked.

    Of course, we are told, Sullivan continues, that this is all taking place under the most strict medical supervision. Poppycock… as they say:

    And yet all these women became trans quite suddenly after puberty, found affirmation immediately, and got testosterone easily. One says she told her mom one evening that she was having a sleepover with friends, but instead drove hundreds of miles to a Planned Parenthood through the night in search for help with transitioning. Within a couple of hours, after telling her life story, she says she was diagnosed as trans by a social worker, who was impressed by her tenacity in driving so far, and was started on testosterone therapy before even getting any results from blood work. Another got diagnosed online, and got testosterone in the mail.

    It is so obviously a social contagion that only the Australian Psychological Society does not accept the obvious. Statistics from Great Britain tell the story:

    In 2009–2010, there were reportedly 32 girls and 40 boys referred to the center for treatment. Since 2018, there have been 624 boys and 1,740 girls, overwhelmingly in their teens. One explanation is that, as stigma declined, more transgender kids identified themselves as such. But the shift toward girls, compared with boys, suggests that something else may be going on. Why should the female share of transgender patients suddenly shift from 44 percent to 74 percent girls in a decade?

    Since teenage girls are so obviously the victims of this contagion, you would expect that feminist thought leaders would be up in arms about it. They are not. It tells you something about today’s feminism and the urge for ideological conformity.

    As we have noted in other studies, a large number of these children are really gay. Their transgender identification appears therefore to be a form of homophobia.

    All the women I spoke with who detransitioned now date women or don’t date at all. Their transition was based entirely on how they felt at the moment, which they now regard as a false signal about their long-term identity. Which prompts the question: How much of the extraordinary surge in transgender girls is related to their discomfort with being a lesbian? What role does homophobia play in enabling transition?

     Sullivan continues:

    “Fast-track” transitioning — some kids are brought by their parents to socially transition as early as 2 years old — has also unnerved some gay men and lesbians. The vast majority (studies range from 63 to 94 percent) of gender dysphoric kids turn out to be gay after puberty. So how can you tell which gender-dysphoric kid is gay and just needs to be left alone, and which one is trans and needs urgent treatment? Since the brain doesn’t fully develop until you’re 25, how do we ever truly know who’s really trans and who’s gay before then?

    The last sentence is chilling. The human brain does not develop until early adulthood. And yet, we as a society are willing to subject children to treatments that will alter their biology forever… on the say so of their parents and social workers. 

    You recall the recent case in Texas where a women, a mother and a pediatrician, has decided that she will force her seven-year-old son to transition into girlhood… and where her estranged husband sued her for custody. Keep in mind this woman is not some rube from the sticks. She is a licensed physician.

    One day our legal profession is going to see this as a pot of gold and is going to sue these physicians and counselors for everything they have. It will be one of the few occasions when we will be on the side of the lawyers.

    Thoughts on Biodiversity Next

     Cache   
    It’s been a while since I’ve posted on iPhylo. Since returning from a fun and productive time in Australia there have been a bunch of professional and personal things that have needed attending too. In amongst all this I attended Biodiversity Next in Leiden, a large (by biodiversity informatics standards) conference with the tag line "Building a global infrastructure for biodiversity data. Together." In this post I try and bring together a few random thoughts on the conference (the Twitter hashtag #biodiversitynext gives a much broader sense of the conference).

    Spectacle


    The venue for the keynotes was delightful, and guest speakers were ushered on stage with a rock-star soundtrack (which, frankly, grated at bit). Some of the keynotes were essentially TED talks, such as Theo Jansen on his wonderful Strandbeest and Jalila Essaidi on bulletproof skin and other biotechnology. Interesting, polished, hopeful.



    Some keynotes were pitches, such as Paul Hebert’s BIOSCAN where we divide the planet into a grid (of squares, really?) and sequence barcodes for everything within each grid. The theme was moving from “artisanal to industrial” scale. BIOSCAN has a rival, the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP) (see https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1720115115) which aims to sequence the whole genome of every eukaryote in 10 years (at a cost of $US 4.7 billion). BIOSCAN is a rather cheaper, although Herbert sees it as the precursor to a larger initiative. But what makes BioSCAN more appealing to me is that it includes and explicit geographical and ecological context. BIOSCAN is interested in what species occur where, and who they are interacting with (the “symbiome”). But not everyone is convinced that mega-genomics projects are a good idea, see for example Proposals to “sequence the DNA of all life on Earth” suffer from the same issues as “naming all the species” by @JeffOllerton.

    Other keynotes that resonated with me were Maxwell Gomera’s where he points out that for many people biodiversity is a risk (including an anecdote about people in Namibia seeing biodiversity as attracting the unwanted attention of outside interests, and hence something to be actively minimised), and Jorge Soberon on just how much of biodiversity informatics is data driven and theory-free. The presentation by Ana María Hernández Salgar on IPBES was perhaps the least exciting keynote, arguably because she’s tackling a probably intractable problem. We have some spectacular technology for documenting and understanding biodiversity, but no obvious way to change or significantly influence human impacts on that biodiversity.

    Optics


    The conference managed to score a pretty spectacular own goal by having an all-white, all male panel (“manel”) for one session (moderated by Ely Wallis @elyw).



    There was a pointed response to this later in the conference (again moderated by Ely).



    Personally I felt that neither panel contributed much beyond platitudes. I don’t think panel discussions like these do much to explore ideas, they are much more about appearances and positions (which makes the manel even more unfortunate).

    There were other comments that were tone deaf. One senior figure argued that “money wasn’t a problem”, the implication being that there’s lots of it around, we just have to figure out how to access it. Yet, one of the sessions I attended featured a young researcher from Brazil who had to crowdfund his attendance at the conference. Money (or rather its uneven distribution) is very much a problem.

    Infrastructure


    The conference had its own app, and it worked well. It certainly made it easier to plan the day, which sadly was mostly realising that the two topics that you were out interested in hearing about were on at the same time. Big conferences have this fundamental problem that there are too many people and too many talks for people to see everything. This makes the event more a statement about community being large enough to stage such an event, than actually being a place to learn what is going on. But I guess the combination of breaks between sessions, social events, and the pre-conference workshops mean there are times and spaces where things can actually get done.

    Substance


    There was a lot going on at the conference, I am going to pick out just a few highlights for me. These are obviously very biased, and I missed a lot of the talks.

    Cordra

    The thing I was most interested to learn about was the technology underpinning DISSCO’s approach to putting specimen records online. Alex Hardisty (@AlexHardisty) gave a nice demo of DISSCO’s approach, which uses Cordra. From Cordra’s website:
    Cordra is a highly configurable open source software offered to software developers for managing digital objects with resolvable identifiers at scale.
    Cordra is from the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI), the people behind the Handle system which underpins DOIs. It's a NoSQL data store that can generate and manage persistent identifiers (e.g., Handles). I’ve not been following DISSCO closely, but this approach makes a lot of sense, and it will be interesting to see how it develops. Alex demoed a “digital specimen repository”, for example the record for specimen BMNH:2006.12.6.40-41 is here: http://nsidr.org/#objects/20.5000.1025/486a7e883f14f88bba37. Early days, but digitial identifiers for specimens are going to be crucial to efforts to interlink biodiversity data.

    Knowledge graphs

    I did my best to spread the knowledge graph meme, and Wikidata is attracting growing interest. Unfortunately I couldn’t see Franck Michel’s (@franck_michel2) talk on Bioschemas, but the idea of having light-weight markup for life science data is very attractive. It seems that long-standing dreams of linking things together are starting to slowly take shape.


    Traits

    This is an area that I have not thought much about. The Encyclopaedia of Life tried to carve out a niche in this area (TraitBank) but their latest iteration abandons the JSON-LD they developed in version 2.0, which seems a strategic blunder given the growth of interest in knowledge graphs, Bioschemas, and Wikidata. It seems that people working on traits are in a sort of pre-GBIF phase looking for ways to integrate diverse data into one or more places where people can play with it. There’s a lot of excitement here, but lots of data wrangling issues to deal with.

    Credit and identity

    The hashtag #citetheDOI became something of a rallying cry for those interested in GBIF data. Citing data downloaded from GBIF enables GBIF to pass information on usage along to data providers. Yet another example of the most compelling use case for identifiers not being scientific but cultural.

    “Get yourself an ORCID” was another rallying cry. The challenge here is that the most obvious beneficiary of you getting an ORCID is not (yet) you, which makes the sales pitch a bit tricky.


    People

    It may be partly an age thing, but an increasingly important aspect of conference alike this is the chance to catchup with people you know, as well as develop new contacts and (hopefully) have your preconceptions challenged by people smarter than yourself. I spent quite a bit of time with the BHL crowd, which meant teasing them about their obsession with old books, which did not end well:

    It was also fun to see Roger Hyam (@RogerHyam) in action again. Roger has a knack for cutting through the noise to make tools that are useful. He gave a nice demo of using the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) to display herbarium images. Under the hood IIIF is JSON-LD and models everything as an annotation, so I think this framework is going to see a lot more use across a range of biodiversity projects. It certainly inspired me to add IIIF to my newly relaunched BioStor.


    Agency


    It's more a kind of pragmatic Archimedean sense that you might be able to move some subset of the world connected to any system on which you have root access or any project for which you're building a key component—from the leverage point of the command line. (The Emergence of Digital Humanities by Steven E. Jones, emphasis added)
    One final thought which struck me is the notion of "agency", in the sense of a person being able to do things. For me one of the joys of biodiversity informatics is that I can make stuff that seems useful (if only to me). If, say, BHL ignores articles, well, you can grab their data and build something that finds those articles. If the data is available, and you can code, then there are few limits to what you can do. Even if you can't code, limits to what people can do are being removed. You have citizen scientists like @SiobhanLeachman (who presented at Biodiversity Next) revelling in the wealth of tools such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, etc. that enable her to add to biodiversity knowledge.

    Do that at scale, as demonstrated by Carrie Seltzer's keynote on iNaturalist, and you can get millions of data points added by a passionate, empowered community.

    Yet, I would find myself talking to biodiversity professionals working at some of the world's leading museums and herbaria, and they had far less agency than someone like Siobhan. They have no influence over the databases and software they use, even trivial changes aren't made because... reasons. Seemingly obvious suggestions of things that could be done, or offers of additional data are met with responses along the lines of "even if you gave us that data, we couldn't do anything with it because there's not a field in our database."

    As a somewhat cranky, independent-minded academic, I greatly value the freedom to create things, and I'm extremely lucky that I can do that. But it is interesting to see that people fascinated by science but who are not employed as scientists often have more agency than the professional scientists. And maybe that's why I'm resistant to large conferences such as Biodiversity Next (and processors such as e-Biosphere 09). They represent the increasing professionalisation of the field, and with that often comes decreasing agency. When I grow up, I want to be a citizen scientist.

    On The Art Of Eating Well: In The Kitchen with Chef Amy Chaplin

     Cache   

    Vegan and vegetarian cooking is certainly more creative than it used to be, but too often, it lacks one key ingredient: soul. This, however, is something Amy Chaplin has an abundance of. The vegetarian chef and cookbook author's approach to food is directly inspired by nature and proves that cooking with whole food ingredients can result in cozy and elegant meals that aren’t just for health nerds.

    Amy has worked as a vegetarian chef in major cities around the globe for over 20 years. She's the former executive chef of the celebrated East Village vegan restaurant, Angelica Kitchen, and a private chef whose clients include Natalie Portman and Liv Tyler. Her first book, At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen, won an IACP and James Beard award (grab a breakfast recipe we love form it here). Her latest cookbook, Whole Food Cooking Every Day, is a bonafide whole food bible that shows how simple and beautiful plant-based cooking can be.

    Amy Chaplin encourages her readers to embrace the values her work embodies: to seek out local ingredients, prep ahead of time, cook at home and, most importantly, fall in love with the process of nourishing your body from the inside out. To celebrate the launch of her latest cookbook, which we're literally never putting down, we asked Amy to join our In The Kitchen series and dish out her best shopping tips, essential ingredients, and favorite seasonal recipe...

    Always in my fridge: Miso, mustard, umeboshi paste, different types of sauerkraut, nut butter, citrus, a variety of vegetables and ginger.

    7 recipe staples always on hand: Beans/lentils, whole grains, extra virgin olive oil, tamari, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and nut butter/tahini.

    Favorite ingredient: black sesame seeds

    Best food memory: Eating a zucchini tart—with zucchini from my mother’s garden, eggs from her chickens and the crust was from my favorite cookbook—sitting by the river where I grew up. We decided to crack a bottle of French champagne my mother had saved from the 80s. My sister stepped on the tart, and we laughed uncontrollably.

    Favorite cookbook: Nourish by Holly Davis

    Midnight snack perfection: Actually not much of a night snacker, but if I did I’d crush some fresh raspberries and stir them into Anita’s coconut yogurt.

    Food you love to eat with zero prep/additions: Mass Organic’s toasted almond butter.

    Must-have kitchen tool: A good knife.

    munchies always on hand: Medjool dates and toasted nuts/nut butter.

    Favorite condiments: Umeboshi vinegar, tamari, toasted seeds and scallions.

    Go-to clean proteins: Tempeh, tofu, eggs, nuts and seeds.

    Best bargain tip: Bulk buying and shopping late at the farmer’s market.

    Best label-reading tip: Read ingredients lists. Pay attention to how many ingredients are listed and what’s at the top.

    Favorite veggie + what you make with it: Kabocha squash, cut in wedges and steam really well, sprinkle with tamari and olive oil.

    Craziest thing I buy at the market: Meredeth Dairy marinated sheep and goat cheese from Australia.

    Favorite splurge: Anita’s coconut yogurt

    The ideal dinner setting: Outside, balmy, early evening at the beach or in the country.

    Signature entertaining detail: Bee's wax candles, flowers and homemade GF crackers from my new book.

    Simple go-to recipe: Instant miso soup (recipe is in my new book): Heaping tablespoon of unpasteurized miso in a mug, fill with boiling water, add scallions and grated fresh ginger.

    ***** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THERMALS*****

    Thermal polishes only have a certain shelf life before they expire and they no longer transition ( change colours ). The average shelf life seems to be 6 - 18 months. 
    Many different variables can affect how long they last including heat/weather/the way they are stored etc.
    Because of this, there is no possible way I can guarantee a certain timeframe. Your polish may last one month or it might last years, please take note of this when purchasing. 

    Thermals are still perfectly fine to use even when they no longer transition!



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    BOTTLE AND INGREDIENTS DETAILS

    *12ml bottle
    * Easy to apply brush
    * Stainless steel ball bearings.
    * I only use a high quality suspension base for all of my nail polish. Most glitters will not sink (some of the larger ones will) and the colours do not require shaking before every use. If settling does occur, a quick roll or shake will fix this.
    * I only use solvent resistant glitters and raw materials in my polish.


    APPLICATION TIPS

    - Wait a few minutes in-between coats. If you do not wait till the previous layer is semi dry it may smudge while applying the next.

    COLOUR REPRESENTATION

    With all the photographs I take of my products, I try to represent the colour as close as possible, however the actual colour may appear different depending on your monitors resolution and colour settings.

    Paso a Paso Roble 2018

    Paso a Paso se elabora con uvas procedente de viñedos viejos y pasa 6 meses en barricas de roble frances 

    De norte a sur, y de este a oeste, Castilla-La Mancha es la gran región vitivinícola, por excelencia. Algunas de sus regiones han sido llamadas «la bodega de Europa», y la calidad de sus vinos es de reconocimiento universal, tanto para sus vinos elaborados con uvas de variedad autóctona, como con foráneas, que se han aclimatado de forma excepcional. Hoy, los vinos de la Tierra de Castilla compiten con ventaja frente a vinos procedentes de Chile o Australia, entre otros.

    Paso a Paso nace en Finca las Cruces, donde se recoje Tempranillo de vilas con una antiguedad de 1960 a 1980, en un suelo rico en caliza que tiene a un metro de profundidad arcilla roja.

    Afrutado y sedoso, Paso a Paso se volverá un vino reincidente en tu bodega, un vino perfecto para cualquier ocasión.

    Tyro Payments IPO - A Lot to like Apart from Its Earnings Profile and Churn Rate

     Cache   

    Tyro Payments (Tyro) plans to raise around US$200-300m in its Australia listing. The company is backed by some strong investors including Tiger Global and Mike Cannon-Brookes, who is the co-founder of Atlassian Corp (TEAM US).

    Tyro is Australia’s fifth largest EFTPOS provider serving small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) with payment solutions. In FY19 (year-end Jun 2019), Tyro processed A$17.5bn worth of transactions for 29,031 merchants. The company mainly earns its revenue by charging the merchants who use its EFTPOS terminals.

    Tyro has an uninterrupted track record of strong growth since inception. It also seems to be gaining ground on the big four even though it still has some way to go. Its recent banking foray appears promising and could be a growth driver over the mid to long-term.

    Os \"media\" tradicionais também têm casos de sucesso...

     Cache   

    O Guardian pertence ao Guardian Media Group, propriedade do Scott Trust, criado em 1936 com o objectivo de “assegurar a independência financeira e editorial do The Guardian em perpetuidade e para salvaguardar a liberdade jornalística e os valores liberais da publicação,sem interferência comercial ou política.”

     

    Assim, os lucros são reinvestidos no jornalismo. A circulação impressa do jornal é de cerca de 280 mil exemplares, mas a sua edição online é a quinta mais lida do mundo. O Guardiantem uma edição digital no Reino Unido e, ainda, dois sites internacionais, o Guardian Australia e o Guardian US.

     

    Apesar de ter enfrentado uma crise durante alguns anos, em Maio o jornal voltou a anunciar que se tinha tornado rentável, sendo que maior parte do seu rendimento tem origem no formato digital. Actualmente, o Guardian gera mais receitas através dos leitores do que da publicidade.

     

    Apesar da queda nas receitas do jornal impresso, o crescimento proveniente digital tem permitido gerar lucro.

    Depois de no ano passado ter lançado uma versão de assinatura digital “premium” – livre de anúncios, com palavras cruzadas e leitura offline –, o Guardian lançou, recentemente, uma nova aplicação: o Guardian Daily, que oferece uma colecção única e finita de histórias por dia, quase como um “jornal diário”.

     

    O Economist é considerada a revista mais influente do mundo e a sua edição em papel tem uma circulação de 1,2 milhões de exemplares. A publicação tem uma paywall rígida e apresenta lucros crescentes, principalmente desde que adoptou a estratégia de colocar o “leitor primeiro”, que tem por base a análise sistemática dos leitores, de forma a identificar as suas preferências.

     

    Actualmente, existem várias opções disponíveis para aceder ao conteúdo da publicação, desde o formato impresso, digital, newsletters, podcasts, etc. Com a alteração da sua estratégia, The Economist duplicou a margem bruta e aumentou as receitas dos leitores em mais de 50%.

     

    O Economist tem 45 milhões de seguidores nas redes sociais, tem a quinta maior comunidade do mundo no Linkedin e as newsletters diárias são recebidas por mais de um milhão de assinantes. Nos podcasts continua a crescer, mas a sua mais recente oferta nesta área, chamada The Intelligence, já teve 17 milhões de downloads, desde que foi lançada em janeiro passado.

     

    Washington Post, de Jeff Bezos, foi comprado, em 2013, por 250 milhões de dólares e desenvolveu um software de publicação, cujas licenças se tornaram os seus activos mais valiosos. 

     

    Depois de vender a sua plataforma de gestão de conteúdos, Arc, à empresa petrolífera BP, o jornal espera que esta gere uma receita anual de 100 milhões de dólares nos próximos três anos. Este será o terceiro maior fluxo de receita do jornal, depois da publicidade e das assinaturas.

     

    De Telegraaf é o jornal mais popular da Holanda, em 2000 a sua circulação ultrapassou os 800 mil exemplares. Contudo, no ano passado, a circulação rondou apenas cerca de 300 mil. 

     

    John De Mol, um magnata holandês, adquiriu uma participação minoritária da empresa e realizou várias mudanças, e, em menos de seis meses, inverteu o declínio das receitas. Os membros da organização fizeram várias visitas aos leitores, de forma a ouvir as suas opiniões.

     

    O crescimento anual das assinaturas da publicação é de cerca de 66%, mesmo com um orçamento de marketing consideravelmente inferior. 

     

    A conclusão a que se pode chegar é que, talvez, o caminho para o sucesso seja o mais básico e se resuma a um maior foco nos interesses dos leitores.
