De patinetes a carsharing: Free2Move quiere ser la reina de la movilidad con opciones casi infinitas más allá del coche eléctrico

Hace tres años escuchamos hablar por primera vez de Free2Move, una nueva unidad de negocio y marca que el Grupo PSA había creado con la intención de dar respuesta a las nuevas necesidades de movilidad que iban surgiendo entre los usuarios. En tres años el mundo cambia muy deprisa, y si no que se lo pregunten al propio Grupo PSA que en ese tiempo ha adquirido Opel, ha preparado una completa ofensiva de producto para atender al coche eléctrico y por si todo eso fuese poco, se está hablando de una inminente fusión con FCA. Pues bien, estas son las novedades que trae Free2Move después de tres años de vida.

En palabras de Brigitte Courtehoux, Vicepresidenta Ejecutiva de Movilidad y Servicios Conectados de Groupe PSA, Free2Move no nace con la intención de vender más coches por canales que poco tienen que ver con los tradicionales, como lo son los de la nueva movilidad, sino que lo que buscan con esa nueva división de la compañía es entender y dar respuesta a las necesidades de movilidad de las personas, ya sean particulares o profesionales, y hacerlo con una batería de soluciones de lo más variopinta.

¿Por qué un fabricante de coches como PSA se va hacia ese terreno por explorar de la nueva movilidad? Seguramente la respuesta a esa pregunta la encontremos en el dato que comparte la compañía, que estima que en 2030 uno de cada tres kilómetros que realicen las personas será compartido. Así pues, adelantarse a la nueva movilidad puede no parecer una aventura rentable hoy en día, pero o debería de ser de cara a futuro.

De emov a Free2Move y ahora multimarca

Free2move Emov

Son muchas las novedades que incorpora la marca Free2Move a su oferta actual, pero tal vez la más tangible e inmediata afecta a la empresa de carsharing que opera en Madrid bajo la marca emov. Esta marca, creada ante la necesidad de poner en marcha su servicio hace tres años, acabará mutando a Free2Move y su App integrada dentro de esa otra.

Pero esa no es la única novedad que llega al carsharing flexible de PSA, ya que también pasará a ser una plataforma multimarca, pudiendo disponer en un futuro de coches de cualquiera de las marcas del Grupo PSA en lugar de únicamente los actuales Peugeot iON y las 10 Citroën Belingo Electric Furgón que están disponibles en Madrid.

Así, podremos ver en un futuro (no han definido cuando exactamente), coches eléctricos como los nuevos Peugeot e-208 o los DS3 Crossback E-Tense en la oferta de Free2Move, así como otros híbridos enchufables como los DS7 Crossback E-Tense o el Peugeot 3008 E-Hybrid, porque si Wible puede operar en la capital de España con modelos híbridos enchufables en lugar de eléctricos como el resto de operadores de carsharing flexible que operan en Madrid, no debería haber motivo para que Free2Move no gozase de las mismas condiciones por parte del consistorio madrileño.

Free2move Emov Emov tiende a desaparecer como marca y los pequeños Peugeot iON dejarán paso a otros modelos electrificados de PSA, incluso de varias marcas diferentes.

De esta forma y con este movimiento, Free2Move tiende hacia una homogeneización de sus servicios de carsharing flexible disponibles en lugares del mundo tan dispares como París (Francia), Wuhan (China) y Washington DC (Estados Unidos) o Lisboa (Portugal) entre otros. Courtehoux se mostraba además eufórica por la acogida que este modelo de negocio está teniendo en Madrid, ciudad que califica de piloto y modelo para la implementación de estos sistemas que tan poco tienen que ver con la venta tradicional de coches.

En este sentido, la ejecutiva llegaba a afirmar que los modelos de negocio de carsharing como el suyo en Madrid eran rentables y por tanto no descartaba seguir usando esta ciudad como laboratorio para implementar nuevas ideas o avances que luego se podrían extrapolar a otras ciudades.

El hecho de que puedan introducir nuevos modelos de coches en la plataforma de carsharing flexible llevó a otro tema, como la posibilidad del desarrollo de un modelo de coche específico para el carsharing: "Hoy en día no sería rentable desarrollar un coche específico para carsharing, pero sí que se plantea adaptar nuestros modelos a las necesidades de los usuarios de carsharing", afirmó tajante.

Las otras novedades de Free2Move

Free2move De Free2Move nos hablaron Brigitte Courtehoux, Vicepresidenta Ejecutiva de Movilidad y Servicios Conectados de Groupe PSA y miembro del Comité ejecutivo de Groupe PSA y Christophe Mandon, Director General de Comercio para España y Portugal

Pero Courtehoux no vino a Madrid únicamente a anunciar el cambio de marca que hará olvidar emov y los nuevos coches que se incorporarán a la plataforma. La ejecutiva hizo un repaso por los múltiples servicios que ofrece la marca, entre los que destacan los siguientes para empresas:

  • Free2Move Lease: es un modelo de Leasing, un alquiler de larga duración para financiar la flota de una empresa. Actualmente cuenta en España con 20.500 vehículos y más de 10.000 empresas que trabajan con ello.
  • Connect Fleet: es la posibilidad de gestionar el rendimiento de una flota en tiempo real, permitiendo reducir los costes de explotación de la flota en variables como consumo de carburante, mantenimiento de los vehículos u optimización de las condiciones de leasing.
  • Fleet Sharing: vehículo compartido de empresa. Libera la movilidad de los empleados, rentabiliza la flota y permite a las empresas optimizar costes en numerosos aspectos: pluses por kilometraje, carreras de taxi y alquileres a corto plazo.
Free2move Emov furgón

Para particulares, la oferta de Free2Move no se ciñe exclusivamente al carsharing flexible del que hablamos antes, hay otras opciones que se materializan en:

  • Free2Move Rent: alquiler de coches a corto plazo, con 25.000 vehículos en Europa en 1.300 puntos. Está ya funcionando en pruebas en Francia y permitirá a los usuarios elegir el tipo de coche en función de sus necesidades. Un mes podrás llevar un urbano eléctrico y al siguiente cambiar a un SUV Premium, solo depende de lo que necesites. Darse de baja será sencillo, bastará con dar aviso un mes antes. Suena al Netflix de los coches.
  • Charge my Car: es una aplicación pensada para cargar los vehículos eléctricos de las marcas de Groupe PSA. Permite identificar y acceder a 110.000 puntos de carga, además de determinar el mejor trayecto, teniendo en cuenta el estado de la batería y la presencia de electrolineras en el trayecto. Estará disponible en España a final del mes de noviembre.

Más allá de los coches: bicicletas, patinetes y hasta transporte público

No termina ahí la oferta que Free2Move ofrece, ya que a través de City se pueden contratar minutos en bicicletas, patinetes, VTC, coches y motos compartidos, así como transporte público. Todo ello se hace a través de la App que es el núcleo de Free2Move y ya está disponible en 34 ciudades de 12 paises, contando con más de 100.000 usuarios activos.

Christophe Mandon Free2Move PSA Christophe Mandon, Director General de Comercio para España y Portugal

Las dudas sobre la rentabilidad de este tipo de aventuras empresariales siempre están presentes, y al respecto Courtehoux se mostró tajante: "la calidad del servicio solo se podrá dar si hay rentabilidad". Tampoco descartó la implementación de su modelo de carsharing flexible en otras ciudades españolas más allá de Madrid, aunque no se aventuró a dar más información.

Christophe Mandon, Director General de Comercio para España y Portugal del Grupo PSA destacó por su parte el papel que jugarán los concesionarios de cara al futuro en este nuevo ecosistema de movilidad en el que no se trata solamente de vender coches. "Los concesionarios serán una pieza clave. Es muy bueno tener una red de puntos de servicio por toda Europa para atender las necesidades de nuestros usuarios pero han de saber transformarse y adaptarse a las necesidades de los usuarios".

Así pues, el Grupo PSA parece estar preparado para abordar un escenario, el de la nueva movilidad, que poco tiene que ver con lo que sus marcas de coches han vivido durante el último siglo, pero no olvidemos que lo que estamos viviendo es una transformación tan grande en la movilidad de las personas y las empresas como lo fue en su momento la propia invención del automóvil.

El Škoda Kamiq GT es el nuevo SUV coupé de la firma checa, pero solo lo podrás ver en China

El Škoda Kamiq GT es el nuevo SUV coupé de la firma checa, pero solo lo podrás ver en China

Tras vislumbrarlo antes de tiempo en unas fotos espía, Škoda ha presentado de forma oficial el Kamiq GT, la variante coupé de su SUV urbano destinada únicamente al mercado chino. La firma checa amplía así su generosa gama crossover para la clientela asiática, que ya cuenta con una oferta de hasta cinco modelos diferentes.

Si bien, ese amplio abanico de productos o que se reserven modelos como este para China no es fruto de la casualidad, sino la respuesta al que es el mayor mercado de la marca desde 2010 y en el que vende uno de cada tres todocamino. Ahora, el Škoda Kamiq GT ofrece una alternativa de menor tamaño al otro SUV coupé que comercializa también en exclusiva en territorio oriental, el Skoda Kodiaq GT.

Con 4,39 metros de largo, el Škoda Kamiq GT es finalmente 2 centímetros más corto que el Škoda Vision GT concept, el prototipo que anticipó sus formas y en el que se inspira, pero sigue siendo 1,5 cm más largo que su homólogo europeo, que se estrenó el pasado verano. Lo mismo ocurre con el Škoda Karoq chino, que es 5 cm más largo que la variante que se comercializa en el Viejo Continente.

Skoda Kamiq Azul

Por otra parte, la capacidad del maletero oscila entre los 463 litros y los 1.510 litros con los asientos abatidos, siendo también mayor que la del modelo europeo: 400 y 1.395 litros, respectivamente.

Carrocería bitono e interior poco digitalizado

Skoda Kamiq Gt 4

A nivel estético, la carrocería finalmente es bitono, algo que ya adelantó la marca en los primeros bocetos, pero que parecía desaparecer en las imágenes filtradas hace tan solo unos días.

De esta forma, Škoda nos muestra en sus imágenes tres combinaciones con el techo y los retrovisores a juego en blanco o negro y la carrocería en amarillo, rojo o azul.

Asimismo, además de la perceptible caída del techo (con barras incluidas), el resto de elementos que se integran en el cuerpo son los esperados, con un marcado nervio lateral que recorre el vehículo a lo largo, pronunciadas defensas y pasos de rueda, amén de un grupo óptico que abandona la configuración bifaro vista en el Škoda Kamiq europeo.

Skoda Kamiq Blanco

En el interior se puede apreciar un cuadro de instrumentación analógico formado por dos relojes dividido por la pantalla Maxi Dot en lugar del digital Virtual Cockpit, y una pantalla para el sistema de infoentreteniminto que se apoya sobre una moldura metalizada. Esta fina línea plateada cruza el ancho del salpicadero y en ella se inserta la inscripción GT a la altura del puesto del copiloto. También destacan los asientos deportivos con costuras de la misma tonalidad que la carrocería.

Skoda Kamiq Gt 3

Bajo el capó, a diferencia del Skoda Kamiq europeo, que se oferta con tres opciones mecánicas de gasolina TSI y un diésel TDI con potencias comprendidas entre 115 CV y 150 CV, la versión adaptada al mercado chino monta un propulsor 1.5 MPI que entrega 82 kW (111 CV) de potencia, según la marca, que no ha facilitado más detalles por el momento.

2019 Turkish Airlines Open Betting Preview and Tips

November 7th – 10th, 2019

Par: 72 / Yardage: 7,133
Purse: $7 million with $1,194,252 to the winner
Defending Champion: Justin Rose
Tournament feed.



Favourite Watch

There's big money on offer but no Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy in the field this week so it's left to Justin Rose to headline the betting at 8/1.  Rosey is the back the back defending champion but that up the road at the Regnum Carya. Pat Reed is 11/1 but worth a look in the win only market might be Shane Lowry at 16/1.  He didn't putt super last week in China but a T9 in GIR shows tee to green he's playing nicely and he's never been outside the top-25 in four visits to Turkey.

Matthias Schwab 28/1


Seems to be still in his trend of missing every second cut but a T4 last week in a big WGC event is sure to have boosted Schwab's confidence and with a T2 in Germany and T4 in Italy you have to feel a win is coming soon.  T18 on his Turkey debut last year.

George Coetzee 40/1


Had to do a double take when I saw George listed at 40/1 this week.  Solo third at Golf National which a tough track for a big batter like George, then a T14 in Portugal and winner of the Vodacom Origins Of Golf on the Sunshine Tour last weekend.  Best of solo 5th in Turkey in 2016.  Maybe the bookies think Georgie and the rugby boys have been on the beer all week!

Danny Willett 30/1


I have to give Danny the benefit of the doubt after something went horribly wrong after a good first round in China was followed by a fall to dead last. He did speak about the heavy rough and getting flyers but that's done and dusted and he's back in Turkey this week where he's previously finished T11 and T4 on this week's Maxx Royal course and T7 last year on the Regnum Carya course.

Tom Lewis 50/1


I'm a big fan of Tom Lewis, he just seems to ghost in every now and again to contend in events.  T5 at the Alfred Dunhill was followed by a T8 in Portugal last time out.  I think he'll like the venue this week where the good putters always prosper.

Victor Perez 40/1


Victor has banked over €1.2 million in the last month with a win on the links in Scotland and T4 last week at the WGC HSBC Champions. In fact his three wins, including two on the Challenge Tour were all in the Autumnal months.  Debut here for the big Frenchman but I think he'll love it.


Long Odds Glory Shots

Nico Colsaerts 80/1:  Overpriced. Winner of the Open de France and T2 in Turkey in 2017.  Victor Dubuisson showed its all about par-5 scoring when he posted -16 for the par fives when he got it to -22 on the Maxx Royal to win in 2015.

Jordan Brand Crafts Air Jordan 34 PE for CBA Star Guo Ailun

 Cache   

Star Chinese point guard and Jordan Brand team member Guo Ailun has recieved his second Air Jordan PE: a crisp Air Jordan 34. Ailun first signed with the Jumpman in 2017 and was presented with his first PE — an Air Jordan 33 — this April. Affectionately known by some fans as the "Chinese Allen Iverson," Ailun is a fearless point guard for the Liaoning Flying Leopards of the CBA, and the AJ34 provides the performance he needs to support his aggressive on-court style.Where Ailun's first PE used a traditional teal as the base and white for the accents, this style opts for the inverse. It presents a crisp white base that's embellished with jade hits on the underlays, trim and sockliner, plus a tonal animal print on the heel. Black laces add dark contrast to the light-hued upper, while chromed-out silver detailing appers on both the tongue and heel's branded hits. Of special note is the right shoe's heel, which trades out the standard Jumpman graphic for the guard's signature "G" motif.Down below, the midsole features a new-jack Eclipse Plate dressed in teal, designed to provide support and increase explosiveness. It houses a jade Zoom Air unit in the forefoot as well, the back of which which pokes through the cored-out midfoot. A white herringbone outsole with final pops of teal completes the look.Ailun is coming off his best CBA season yet, despite being swept in the Finals: he averaged 23 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds a game, and finished as a runner-up in the MVP voting.Ailun's new AJ34s are set to release exclusively at Nike China on November 13. The MSRP is set at ¥1,500 (approximately $214 USD).See a full set of official images above, and for more jade-equipped Jordans, be sure to check out the refreshing Air Jordan 5 "Island Green" as well.

UNCTAD paper suggests trade war may have benefited India's exports

 Cache   

United Nations: India sent $755 million more in exports to the US during the first half of this year as a result of the trade war waged by President Donald Trump against China, according to the trade arm of the UN.

Trade diversion effects for India were smaller compared some other countries, "but still substantial", a research paper from the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) said.

The paper on trade and trade diversion effects of US tariffs on China that was released in Geneva on Tuesday said, "US tariffs on China are economically hurting both countries. The tariffs have resulted in a strong decline in US imports from China. US losses are largely related to higher prices for consumers."

But it is also helping other countries like India that are not directly involved in the trade war as the US increased imports from them by about $21 billion in the first six months of the year

Taiwan and Mexico were the biggest beneficiaries.

The paper said that the office machinery and communication equipment sectors were hit the hardest for China, with a total reduction of US imports worth about $15 billion for the first half of 2019.

India was able to capture only $18 million in the office machinery component of the sector, but none in the communication equipment part during this period, according to UNCTAD.

India made the most gains in the chemical sector, about $243 million; electrical machinery, $83 million, and other machinery, $68 million, it said.

Vietnam, with its emphasis on export-oriented growth, presents a contrast to India showing that it was able to benefit much more from the trade diversification.

Its exports rose by $2.6 billion, with electrical machinery accounting tor $400 million and communication equipment $1.1 billion, according to UNCTAD.

Washingtons's tariffs caused a 25 per cent export loss for China "inflicting a $35 billion blow to Chinese exports in the US market for tariffed goods in the first half of 2019," the paper said.

But it added that Chinese firms being able to retain 75 per cent of their exports despite the higher tariffs showed their competitiveness.

Last year, US and China initially raised tariffs on about $50 billion worth of each other's goods and Washington later hit Beijing with an additional 10 per cent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

In June, the US increased the tariffs to 25 per cent.

China has also increased tariffs on US products, mainly hitting the agriculture sector from which Trump draws a significant part of his support.

India, however, has also been a victim of the trade wars of Trump, who has called India the "king of tariffs."

In June, the US removed the General Scheme of Preferences benefits for India. The Trump administration has made several trade and related demands of India, such as removing restrictions on e-commerce, storage of consumer data, and imports of milk products from cattle given cannibalised feed, and Trump's pet cause, reducing import duties on Harley Davidson motorcycles.

The two countries are negotiating a trade deal.

Analysis: the numbers behind the FCA and PSA merger

 Cache   
FCA PSA cars
The FCA-PSA tie-up gathers 15 brands under the same roof
As the car-making groups agree to tie the knot, we take a closer look at the merger's prospects

The agreed merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the PSA Group will create the world’s fourth-largest car company based on sales.

The two European firms last week announced their intention to create a new entity owned 50/50 between the two but led by PSA’s CEO, Carlos Tavares. PSA will also appoint six board members against five for FCA, in effect giving the French company control over the decision-making.

The combination of the two will create a 15-brand automotive behemoth that together sold 4.2 million vehicles in the first half of this year, behind the Volkswagen Group, Toyota and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance but ahead of General Motors and Hyundai-Kia, figures from Jato Dynamics show.

The company would be big enough “to capture successfully the opportunities and manage effectively the challenges of the new era in mobility”, according to a joint statement referencing the high cost of investing in new technologies such as EVs and autonomous cars.

Despite being highly profitable, FCA has been chasing a merger ever since its previous CEO, the late Sergio Marchionne, warned in his 2015 treatise ‘Confessions of a Capital Junkie’ that car makers had to consolidate in order to have any hope of controlling spiralling development costs. FCA have since been rebuffed time and again, most recently after talks with Renault collapsed earlier this year.

Now, just over a year after his death, Marchionne’s dream has been realised. By sharing technology and platforms and pooling other resources, the companies will eventually make combined annual savings of €3.7 billion (£3.2bn), the two said in a statement.

This figure could be achieved without shutting factories, the statement said – something PSA has proved it can do after successfully turning around GM’s loss-making Vauxhall-Opel division.

The barriers to success are huge. FCA might be profitable but, of the €7.3bn (£6.3bn) it made last year in pre-tax profits, €6.2bn (£5.3bn) was made in the US thanks in the main to demand for Ram pick-ups and Jeep SUVs. The company struggles in Europe, where demand for its core Fiat brand is too heavily dependent on sales of the lower-margin 500 and Panda city cars. It also fails to make serious money from its storied but underfunded premium brands, Alfa Romeo and Maserati.

PSA could quickly fix Fiat in Europe, argues Felipe Munoz, a global analyst at Jato Dynamics. “FCA could make use of the new 208/Corsa platform to re-enter the supermini segment with a new Punto,” he said. A new Tipo could then follow on the Peugeot 308 platform.

A bigger problem is FCA’s industrial base in Italy, where it has an astonishing 27 manufacturing facilities for vehicles and parts. Over-staffing in underfunded factories running far below capacity is a serious problem that will take all of Tavares’ skill to negotiate. He won praise in the UK for – so far – managing to keep Vauxhall’s two plants running while still returning Vauxhall/Opel to profitability, and Italian unions are seeking assurances that the same can happen in Italy, where Fiats, Alfas, Maseratis and smaller Jeeps are built.

The interesting question is what happens to Alfa Romeo and Maserati? Turning Maserati into the Italian equivalent of VW Group profit machine Porsche has always been the tantalising goal, and earlier this year FCA announced a €5bn (£4.3bn) investment programme to electrify Maserati and launch a new sports car with both electric and combustion engines by next year. PSA described Maserati and Alfa Romeo as having “substantial development potential”, and maybe Tavares is the man to fully unlock this. Or maybe he’s the man to finally sell Alfa Romeo to the VW Group, which it historically has coveted.

The big strengths of the planned merger are in SUVs and vans – the two most profitable segments right now. An FCA-PSA merger creates the world’s largest van maker, with sales in excess of half a million in the first half of the year, according to Jato Dynamics. It is also the world’s third-largest SUV maker, with sales of 1.5 million over the same period. Combined, it sold more than 1.2 million smaller cars (up to Astra size) but is seriously under-represented in medium-sized saloons (14th largest globally), which the new entity will need to address to overcome weakness in China.

Max Warburton, an analyst at Bernstein, acknowledged that Europe is likely to be the biggest benefit. “It’s obvious that PSA does not offer any synergies in the US, and very little in Latin America,” he said. “Putting PSA and FCA together in China doesn’t solve much, either: two wrongs don’t make a right. A deal does nothing to change Alfa and Maserati’s prospects, either.”

New Kia Futuron concept previews future electric SUVs

 Cache   
2019 Kia Futuron Striking high-rider takes styling inspiration from UFOs and is said to offer 'lightning-fast' acceleration

Kia has unveiled the new Futuron concept as an indication of what a new line of electric SUVs from the Korean manufacturer could look like. 

Making its public debut at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai, the concept takes the form of a two-door SUV with a coupe-style curved roofline. The firm says the model’s design is notable “for its pure, smooth form, devoid of ornament”.

Measuring 4850mm from bumper to bumper, the Futuron is comparable in length to Byton’s similarly positioned M-Byte electric SUV, the Audi E-tron and Jaguar’s I-Pace, but a roofline just 1550mm off the ground matches that of smaller SUVs like the Skoda Kamiq and the hydrogen-powered Hyundai Nexo

An especially notable feature of the concept’s design is a new version of Kia’s trademark ‘tiger nose’ grille (present on all of its production cars for more than ten years), which has been significantly expanded to create a ‘tiger face’. The front end also showcases a new ‘Star Cloud’ lighting design that's incorporated into the grille and uses movable ‘scales’ to alternate between daytime running lights and full-beam headlights. 

Kia hints that this front end design, itself an evolution of that sported by the four-door ‘Imagine by Kia’ concept, could soon feature across its line-up. 

Exact powertrain specifications are unconfirmed, but Kia has revealed that the Futuron keeps its power in a high-capacity battery pack that's mounted beneath its floor to maximise interior space and ensure a low centre of gravity. This unit sends power to four electric motors, one on each wheel, which are said to offer “lightning-fast responses to driver inputs”. 

The Futuron’s interior is equally futuristic, combining a minimalist layout with advanced autonomy functions to enhance the urban driving experience. 

A diamond-shaped panoramic glasshouse is said to be inspired by ‘UFO and flying saucer design’, and offers a clear view of the road ahead while maximising the amount of natural light in the cabin. It also incorporates a network of LiDAR sensors that enable Level 4 self-driving functions. 

The front seats are fully reclinable, enabling drivers to take their eyes off the road when the car is in its autonomous mode, which Kia says will help to reduce fatigue on long journeys. The exterior’s ‘Star Cloud’ lighting pattern features on the door panels, with a similarly ‘scaley’ surface housing the air conditioning and heating vents. 

The Futuron’s 360-degree cabin shape is emphasised by a thin, interactive light bar that wraps around the entire body and responds to physical movements from outside the car. 

Kia has offered several indications as to how its future line-up is taking shape recently. The SP Signature and Mohave Masterpiece SUVs shown earlier this year previewed a pair of combustion-engined SUVs, while the rugged HabaNiro gave an idea of what to expect from the next-generation Niro, launching in 2021.

Lotus Elan in frame as Boxster rival in revival plan

Lotus Elan render
How the new Lotus Elan could look, as imagined by Autocar
The Elan could be reborn, joining a range of old favourites being reintroduced through Lotus's new growth strategy

Lotus is considering reintroducing the Elan name on a new drop-top sports car, as well as other models in a back catalogue that includes the Elite, the Europa and the Esprit.

The Elan name is said by sources at the Hethel-based firm to have a strong possibility of being revived in the next few years. Few of the details are known at this stage but insiders are said to be “very excited” by the proposed configuration of this car, which is expected to be positioned above the Elise as a two-seat convertible with more refinement, space and creature comforts to take on the Porsche Boxster. Despite this, the new car should stick to the classic Lotus traits of being lighter than rivals and among the best in its class to drive.

The company is developing an all-new, rivet-bonded platform to replace its two existing structures – with the Elise/Exige architecture dating back to 1995, and the Evora to 2008. The all-new platform, which is around two years away, will provide the basis for a new sports car range including the Elan.

The proposed new model would be the third-generation Elan; the first highly regarded version of this sports car series was introduced in 1962. The platform family on which it’s broadly based is the central plank of a new product cycle plan that’s part of Lotus’s 10-year ‘Vision 80’ strategy.

Before these newcomers, Lotus will launch the last variation on the current Evora platform, a new sports model. It will appear late next year as a very driver-focused package but it will also be significantly easier to get in and out of than current models and have much improved ergonomics. Alongside this, CEO Phil Popham has expressed a need to overhaul the brand’s rather limited connectivity technology, so we could see new Lotuses ditching the usual aftermarket stereo systems for a bespoke infotainment set-up.

Planning a decade ahead is a given for most car makers but a strategic rarity for Lotus. It has been enabled by the Vision 80 investment programme led by Popham. In the past, the company has typically had the resources to develop only one car at a time. Now it can realise a complete product plan.

The scale of this investment has been estimated at around £1.5 billion by Bloomberg, although this figure is said to be “very conservative” by a Lotus spokesman. That sum should be enough to pay for the new architecture, whose structural concept will be similar to the current platform.

Lotus will retain the rivet-bonded alloy core concept, which, insiders say, provides excellent overall stiffness and allows plenty of scope to increase local rigidity for different models. These qualities will be essential if the high-grade driving dynamics promised by the company’s ‘for the driver’ brand ambition are to be achieved.

The rivet-bonded approach also suits Lotus’s sales goals. Although the firm is aiming to increase sales sixfold – from last year’s 1630 cars to around 10,000 by 2029 – this vehicle construction method reportedly remains the best solution for Lotus’s relatively low volumes.

The rivet-bonded and composite structure is also light – essential to the Lotus mission – and its detail design will benefit from the brand’s 25 years of production experience with this technology.

As before, a mix of materials will be used, probably across a wider palette that includes carbonfibre and several metals. A key ambition will be to reduce the time required to build each car, say insiders. That will be achieved by reducing the time it takes to bond each structure and also by cutting the number of hours required to assemble a car, the corollary of which should be improved quality.

Containing costs will be aided by the use of ‘keep zones’, the term Lotus engineers use to describe the three-dimensional slices of architecture that will be shared among all cars using this new platform. One example is the position of the front wheel relative to the driver’s seat, a high-investment zone of the platform that it makes sense to retain across all versions. But the ‘keep zones’ strategy doesn’t preclude tailoring the wheelbase and track to suit the needs of different models, insiders say.

As for the new model being introduced late next year, this will be the last new variant to be developed on the current Evora platform and much effort has been expended on ergonomics. That includes not only the driving position and forward visibility but also the ease of getting into and out of the car, a drawback of the current models that has limited sales.

Given the wide variety of cars to be derived from the all-new platform – from track-only models via an Elan to the Evora and Esprit supercar, which is also understood to bea long-term goal for Lotus – the scope for a variety of dynamic and functional levels will need to be built in. The company has reportedly done a lot of work assessing competitor cars to define these goals at the outset for each new model.

The targets also include the cars’ electrical functionality. Insiders have reported that membership of the Geely Group is giving Lotus affordable access to everything from infotainment systems and electronic dampers to electric power steering technology. The last of these will be essential for providing the advanced driver assistance systems mandated by law in some markets, but there will also be models, probably track-focused ones, with unassisted steering.

Regulations and a shifting market will also demand that alternative powertrains be developed and these are said to be under evaluation. But, as Lotus found when developing the Tesla Roadster from the Elise, packaging large numbers of battery cells can affect both the platform’s design and the car’s dynamic behaviour, which Lotus will hope to limit in part by harnessing tech from Geely.

The recent announcement of a Geely combustion engine and hybrid development centre, created by combining the Volvo and Geely internal combustion development departments, would provide a source of expertise.

A further sign of the more substantial resources behind Lotus is the plan to develop all models for worldwide homologation from the start, as well as building in the scope to cater for the customer requirements of markets such as China and the US. The long-mooted SUV will be key to these markets. It is tipped to become Lotus’s ‘cash cow’ in the same way the volume-selling Cayenne and Macan have become for Porsche. “Today, Porsche is our benchmark,” Group Lotus CEO Feng Qingfeng told Autocar earlier this year.

Moscú y Caracas dirigen una estrategia en las redes para alentar la protesta en Chile

 Cache   
Un análisis pormenorizado de 1,1 millones de mensajes publicados entre el 16 y el 25 de octubre en la red social Twitter sobre las protestas en Chile demuestra una intensa actividad de cuentas venezolanas, una parte de ellas identificadas como afines al régimen. Esas son las principales conclusiones del estudio del servicio Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab) del «think tank» Atlantic Council, quien afirma que un 20% de los perfiles radicados en Venezuela que difundieron mensajes sobre las protestas en Chile se definen como chavistas o bolivarianos. Varias cuentas muy activas en la difusión de mensajes chavistas han empleado de forma especialmente intensa en semanas recientes lemas sobre las principales crisis abiertas en el continente como #ChileResiste, #EcuadorEnResistencia o #BoliviaDecide. Un ejemplo es el de la cuenta @juancardenasr26, que exhibe una imagen de Hugo Chávez en su perfil y que ha sido la más prolífica, con 214 mensajes al día como «Que Chile sea el primero y luego España si va... vamos háganlo rápido», o «Alerta, alerta, alerta que camina, la espada de Bolívar por América Latina…». Según los expertos, el problema de las injerencias en redes sociales es especialmente alarmante en América Latina, por la cohesión del idioma. El español es lengua materna de casi 500 millones de personas que viven en 19 países americanos y las redes sociales no conocen de fronteras ni quedan sujetas a la supervisión o regulación de un sólo país. Muchos gobiernos, incluidos Estados Unidos, Rusia, China e Irán, tienen servicios digitales de noticias en español con el objetivo manifiesto de influir sobre la política del continente. Campañas de injerencia Respecto al análisis del DFRLab, los 1,1 millones de mensajes recolectados durante nueve días de protestas en Chile fueron publicados por 421.868 cuentas, de las que solo el 47,8% hizo pública su ubicación. Este conjunto de usuarios, 201.840 perfiles, publicó 544.820 mensajes. De esos mensajes 106.626 provienen de Venezuela y un 20% de ellos, 21.200 en total, de cuentas que abiertamente se incluyen en sus descripciones biográficas palabras como: chavez, chavismo, chavista, maduro, bolívar, psuv, bolivariana, bolivariano o diosdado. Según explica a ABC Esteban Ponce de León, investigador del DFRLab, el siguiente paso de los investigadores es analizar la actividad y la relación entre las cuentas venezolanas, incluidas las que se describen como chavistas, para estudiar si su comportamiento obedece a un patrón coordinado que permita hablar de una campaña orquestada de injerencia desde el poder. Respecto a la conversación en redes sociales sobre las protestas en Chile, Ponce de León estudia «qué cuentas provienen de Venezuela, cuáles podrían identificarse como chavistas o bolivarianas y, en este sentido, cómo han participado estas cuentas en dichas conversaciones». El DFRLab es un grupo de investigación digital que ha desenmascarado numerosas campañas de injerencia extranjera en redes sociales, varias de ellas procedentes de Rusia. El Atlantic Council es un «think tank» bipartidista radicado en Washington cuya misión es reforzar el vínculo trasatlántico y que forma parte de la Asociación del Tratado del Atlántico, que presta apoyo a la OTAN. Ese servicio ha publicado, además, unas imágenes que muestran a unos supuestos soldados rusos con atuendo militar en el complejo Cícrulo Militar en Caracas. Esta sería una prueba del apoyo militar sobre el terreno que Moscú está prestando al régimen de Nicolás Maduro, algo que se suma al envío de técnicos y material bélico en marzo y a la transferencia, revelada por la agencia Bloomberg, de 315 millones de dólares (284 millones de euros) del Kremlin al régimen venezolano desde mayo de 2018. En total son cinco las fotos de soldados rusos en Caracas publicadas por el DFRLab, que no ha podido identificarlos con nombre y apellido. En tres de las imágenes los hombres van uniformados. Un análisis de imágenes por satélite efectuado por estos investigadores demuestra que los soldados se hallan en el Circulo Militar de Fuerte Tiuna, sede, entre otros, del Ministerio para la Defensa, la Comandancia General del Ejército, el Círculo Militar de Caracas, el Batallón Bolívar la residencia oficial de la vicepresidenta, además de algunas dependencias de la academia militar de Venezuela. Los grandes medios estatales de Rusia, encabezados por RT y Sputnik, se han lanzado a publicar notas sobre la protesta en Chile con titulares como «Violaciones y agresiones sexuales: la violencia de los policías y militares en Chile». Tanto RT en español como la cadena estatal venezolana Telesur fueron los medios cuyos mensajes más se compartieron sobre las protestas en Chile, algo que según el análisis del DFRLab «imita la operación venezolana centrada en Cataluña, que compartió los enlaces de los medios estatales rusos como su principal estrategia para influir en el referéndum de independencia de la región autónoma en 2017».
          

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.
          

Apuñalado en Hong Kong el diputado Junius Ho, el político más odiado por los manifestantes

 Cache   
Cinco meses después del estallido de las protestas contra el autoritarismo de China, la violencia sigue extendiéndose en Hong Kong a poco más de dos semanas para las elecciones a los consejos de distrito, convocadas para el día 24. Tras el turbulento fin de semana, en el que le arrancaron parte de la oreja de un mordisco a un diputado demócrata, un político partidario del régimen chino ha sido apuñalado este miércoles. Se trata del iracundo diputado Junius Ho, posiblemente la figura más odiada del Parlamento local para el bando democrático y sus manifestantes. Mientras hacía campaña para renovar su escaño en el consejo de distrito de Tuen Mun, un hombre le ha atacado con un objeto afilado hiriéndole en el pecho. A pesar de la cercanía del agresor, parece que no reviste gravedad, pero ha sido trasladado en ambulancia a un hospital para curarle la herida. El ataque ha quedado recogido en un vídeo difundido por las redes sociales que puede verse en Youtube. En él, un hombre con una camiseta azul y una gorra con la visera hacía atrás se le acerca mientras repartía propaganda electoral y le entrega un ramo de flores. Tras estrecharle la mano y felicitarle por sus «esfuerzos», le pide hacerse una foto con él y dice que va a sacar su móvil de una bolsa que lleva en bandolera. Pero, de repente, saca un objeto que no llega a apreciarse en las imágenes e intenta clavárselo en el pecho a Junius Ho, quien consigue zafarse. Rápidamente, tanto el propio Ho como dos de sus guardaespaldas se lanzan sobre el atacante y lo inmovilizan en el suelo. Según informa el periódico “South China Morning Post”, tanto el agresor como Ho y uno de sus ayudantes han sido trasladados al hospital. A sus 57 años, Junius Ho es sin duda el político que más emociones enfrentadas despierta en Hong Kong. Admirado por los afines al régimen chino y detestado por los manifestantes que reclaman pleno sufragio universal, ha protagonizado innumerables polémicas por sus deslenguados comentarios y gestos provocadores. El 21 de julio, cuando un grupo de matones y mafiosos de las triadas atacó brutalmente a los manifestantes en la estación de tren de Yuen Long, apareció un vídeo que mostraba a Ho saludando amistosamente y felicitando a los agresores. Días después, y tras marcharse airadamente de un debate en televisión con el diputado demócrata Eddie Chu, le amenazó de muerte al culparle de los destrozos que había sufrido la tumba de sus padres. Pero estas no son los únicas controversias que ha protagonizado. Enemigo acérrimo del matrimonio homosexual, que ha definido como «bestialidad», ha abogado incluso por «matar sin piedad» a los partidarios de la independencia de Hong Kong, lo que le valió críticas hasta de los diputados afines a Pekín. Con bastante mal gusto, también sacó a relucir su machismo cuando dijo que la parlamentaria demócrata Claudia Mo «come salchicha extranjera» porque está casada con un periodista británico, lo que le valió su expulsión de la sesión del Consejo Legislativo (Legco). Por su comportamiento y sus comentarios, la Universidad Anglia Ruskin del Reino Unido le retiró a finales del mes pasado el título de Doctor Honoris Causa que le había otorgado en 2011. Por su parte, los antiguos alumnos de la universidad de Hong Kong donde estudió, la Facultad de Queens, también están estudiando quitarle su membresía. No es la primera vez que Junius Ho había recibido amenazas. En septiembre, el hipódromo de Happy Valley canceló su carrera nocturna de los miércoles porque en ella competía uno de sus caballos y se temía por la seguridad. Pero, dada la tendencia al drama de Ho, ya hay quien sospecha en las redes sociales que el apuñalamiento ha sido orquestado por él mismo para darle al Gobierno una excusa para cancelar las elecciones del día 24. Una «teoría de la conspiración» parecida al atentado simulado que abre la película «Diez años», que se convirtió en un fenómeno social en 2015 por mostrar un futuro muy negro de Hong Kong que cada día parece más real y cercano.

La Petite sirène, illustrée par Charlotte GASTAUT, 2005, éditions Flammarion - père Castor

 Cache   

Aujourd'hui c'est lecture! même si on reste sur un texte connu, la Petite Sirène d'Andersen, illustré en 12 tableaux par Charlotte Gastaut (1974-...).

 

la petite sirène - Charlotte Gastaut - 2005 - couverture

 

C'est une version jeunesse (je précise puisque par exemple la version manga de Junko Mizuno est loin d'être à destination des enfants!), parue chez Flammarion, collection Les classiques du Père Castor (Il existe aussi en version CD). A noter que 2005 fêtait le bicentenaire de la naissance d'Andersen, et Lisbeth Zwerger (1954-...) une illustratrice autrichienne, a elle aussi travaillé sur le conte cette année, avec une nouvelle traduction pour l'occasion, dont je parlerai une autre fois...

J'apprécie beaucoup l'univers visuel de Charlotte Gastaut qui n'est pas totalement une inconnue ici : elle a oeuvré dans le livre Histoires de sirènes, et j'avais trouvé aussi un joli puzzle de chez DJECO; un éditeur de jeux et d'objets pour enfants pour qui elle travaille régulièrement. Bien que très active dans le secteur de l'édition jeunesse ( Lito, Hélium, Flammarion jeunesse, Milan, Gallimard jeunesse etc.) de préférence pour les contes et légendes, elle est loin de dédaigner d'autres domaines et a réalisé des campagnes de communication pour l'Occitane, signé des affiches pour le SLPJ ou le festival d'Annecy, des illustrations pour la presse ( je l'ai découverte via une publication dans Télérama) des foulards pour Hermès, etc.

la petite sirène - Charlotte Gastaut - 2005 - différents motifs

Charlotte Gastaut est fidèle à son style habituel (bon, oui, ce livre fait partie de ses premiers travaux!) et ses illustrations sont comme toujours extrêmement décoratives, pleines de motifs répétitifs: rayures, pois, stries ressemblant à des empreintes digitales, fleurs stylisées des robes... certaines rappellant l'art déco, tout comme le physique longiligne et asexué du personnage principal sans forme de hanches ni de poitrine (malgré les deux petites étoiles sur son buste): cette silhouette qui peut correspondre à l'aspect d'un corps enfantin et souligner la jeunesse de la sirène, mais aussi évoquer le style garçonne des femmes libérées des années 1930.

Ou peut-être une allure asiatique, renforcée par son large visage rond, ses fins cheveux noirs et raides et ses yeux très étirés? Il y a en tout cas des influences japonaises ( et parfois celtes ) dans les motifs utilisés. Il y a comme une parenté avec le style affiché dans les dessin animés de Tomm Moore et Nora Twomey, Brendan et le secret de Kells ou Le chant de la mer... Bon bref, j'aime bien! ^^

************

Donc! Il s'agit ici bien d'une version et non d'une simple vision, puisque le texte est modifié, très abrégé: par exemple, le fait qu'au début la Petite Sirène cultive un jardin plein de fleurs rouges avec au milieu une statue de jeune homme, a complètement disparu; reste juste l'écarlate de son collier pour la distinguer de ses 5 autres soeurs.

La petite sirène - Charlotte Gastaut - 2005 - avec la grand-mère

La fête sous la mer avec sa famille, juste avant qu'elle aille voir la Sorcière, saute aussi; et la morale finale est raccourcie, tout comme dans les livres illustrés par Monika Laimgruber et par Danièle Bour.

Mais si le texte est abrégé, ce n'est pas un handicap puisque les images (manifestement en acrylique ou gouache sur papier teinté) le complètent admirablement!

Les couleurs froides attachent ce conte au climat nordique et à la mélancolie finale: quelques touches de rouge, comme le collier, les petits poissons ou les étoiles de mer, animent à peine les gris-bleus et verts du monde marin; quant au monde terrestre, s'il est bien doté de teintes plus chaudes, celles-ci restent très assourdies: les dominantes sont ocre jaune et violet... Or le violet, couleur sombre, est associé symboliquement depuis le Moyen-Age occidental au deuil, à la pénitence, et les artistes du 19ème siècle la voyaient comme la couleur du crépuscule (cf wikipedia). Et le jaune, s'il n'est pas pur (ou éclatant, doré), est une couleur peu valorisée en Occident, liée à la traîtrise, au mensonge, au vieillissement (toujours Wikipedia...).

la petite sirène - Charlotte Gastaut - 2005 - l'hésitation (extrait)

 

Sur l'illustration où elle prend le couteau et se rend dans la chambre nuptiale, on trouve un fond de broderies ocres sur fond violet, des formes tourmentées qui traduisent le désarroi mental dans lequel elle se débat probablement à ce moment. Un arrière-plan révélateur, théorisé de manière très accessible par Scott Mc Cloud dans son ouvrage l'art invisible (Vertige Graphic,1999).

De même, les femmes, habillées d'énormes crinolines cachant le bas de leur corps, par rapport aux hommes en pantalon, se retrouvent sans jambes visibles, telles des sirènes terrestres... La petite sirène ne troque sa queue de poisson que pour une autre manière de cacher et d'emprisonner les membres inférieurs.

Et Charlotte Gastaut dessine à la princesse rivale, sosie de l'héroïne principale, une robe qui semble faite d'écailles : pas étonnant alors que le prince la confonde avec sa véritable sauveuse, puisqu'elle paraît presque plus sirène que la petite sirène elle-même!

 

la petite sirène - Charlotte Gastaut - 2005 - la sorcière

 

Elle donne à la Grand-Mère (j'adore la position d'adolescente détendue sur les genoux de sa mamie et jouant machinalement avec son collier qu'a la Petite Sirène sur l'illustration, c'est tellement réaliste!) comme à la Sorcière des Mers un caractère bestial, quoique différent: entièrement recouverte d'écailles pour l'aïeule, plus tentaculaire et sombre pour la Sorcière des Mers (non sans ressemblance avec la Cecaelia Ursula de Disney)...

Je pourrais continuer ainsi durant des lignes et des lignes, cependant je m'arrêterai ici, j'en ai déjà bien assez dévoilé; et dire que lorsque j'avais commencé cet article j'avais peur de n'avoir pas grand chose à raconter! ^^;;;  (allez, une dernière chose, un défaut cette fois-ci : je ne suis pas franchement convaincue par la typo du titre... >_<). Bref, vous l'aurez compris, j'ai apprécié ma lecture et je recommande cette version illustrée si vous voulez commencer à lire ce conte à des enfants déjà un peu grands ( 5-6 ans) mais pas forcément encore très patients pour la version complète!

BotRide to Provide Free AV Rides in Southern California

 Cache   

A new ride-hailing pilot project in Southern California is experimenting with autonomous mobility.

BotRide launched in Irvine on Nov. 4 with a fleet of 10 autonomous Hyundai KONA electric SUVs, all of which will provide free service in a part of the city of Irvine that includes the campus of University of California Irvine. Officials overseeing the project say the area was chosen deliberately.

“The pilot introduces BotRide to several hundred Irvine residents, including college students. The goal is to study consumer behavior in an autonomous ride-sharing environment,” said Christopher Chang, head of business development, strategy and technology division, Hyundai Motor Company, in a statement.

The three-month pilot is a joint effort between Hyundai, Via Metropolitan Transit, and Pony.ai. In order to use the service, riders must download the BotRide app. Although the vehicles are being driven autonomously, the cars will also have human operators, said Andy Ambrosius, principal of public relations at Via.

Pony.ai provides the autonomous technology for the vehicles, while Via will provide expertise in shared-ride, on-demand transit.

Pony.ai, founded in 2016, is testing its AV technology in other U.S. locations, as well as China, using sensor hardware and proprietary software. The company holds the testing permit issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. The California DMV has authorized AV testing for 64 companies, as of Oct. 2. All testing must be done with a human operator in the vehicle. 

Fully autonomous testing, without a human driver, is allowed on public roadways in neighboring Arizona. 

The pilot to bring autonomous technology onto the streets of Irvine was met with stinging opposition from at least one member of the Irvine City Council.

“This seems like some little plaything for UCI [University California Irvine] students to come onto the streets where we live, with our families. And I’m completely against it,” said Michael C. Carroll, a member of the Irvine City Council, during his remarks opposing the program at the Oct. 22 City Council meeting.

Projects to test AVs require state approval, but do not need the green light from the local municipality, a point Carroll found particularly troubling.

For its part, Pony.ai, the tech company testing the AV technology, says it coordinated the project with city and university officials who "have full visibility to and knowledge of the BotRide pilot," said Christine Qing, a spokeswoman for Pony.ai.

"In addition, the Irvine Police Department went through a live training session prior to deployment," Qing added. 

Still, local lawmakers are too often overlooked, said Carroll. 

“This is yet another example of the complete take-over attempts by the state of California to meddle in the cities’ local affairs,” said Carroll, adding the city should have been given broader notice of the pilot and more input into the particulars such as the location, time frame and other details.

“As a councilmember, and an extremely concerned homeowner and a resident of the already congested and traffic-challenged southwest part of Irvine, I do not understand how the city council has zero input on this decision,” said Carroll, who also voiced concern that the cars would pose fatal danger. 

Via company officials say Irvine was selected for the location of the pilot due to its suburban setting and the relative lack of public transit in the area. 


          

How to Safely Shop Online This Holiday Season

 Cache   

The moment Halloween ended, the nation entered an earlier-than-ever holiday shopping season online that has already begun and won’t end until early January, 2020.

Why begin the holiday shopping season so early this year?

Since the Thanksgiving holiday weekend arrives late in 2019, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are already arriving with retailers launching a blur of discounts to try and make up for the perceived lost shopping days - when compared to the early Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2018.

For example, CNET highlighted these Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that actually start on November 7. Others have already begun.

USA Today revealed deals from Bed Bath & Beyond as well as Kohls deals.

Forbes provided these deals from Walmart, Best Buy and more. While Fox News proclaimed: “Black Friday is 3 weeks away right? Nope, it's here now.”

As I was doing research for this article, I learned that Black Friday has become a global event, with big sales as far away as China. Indeed, the Google analytics show worldwide holiday shopping trends that are complex, unique by industry and country. Overall, big increases are expected in search traffic – with some industries doubling. In the US, retailers see an 80 percent increase in their search traffic throughout November.

And the sales forecast news is generally very good for retailers according to Inc. Magazine:

“Cyber Monday is expected to pull in $9.4 billion this year, a $1.5 billion increase from last year's online sales tally for the Monday after Thanksgiving. The real detail retailers need to know? Thirty percent of all sales made this Cyber Monday, which falls on December 2, will likely be made in the four-hour window of 7 to 11 p.m. Pacific time.

That's according to Adobe Analytics' Holiday Forecast 2019, which analyzed data on trillions of visits, products, and transaction data from U.S. retail websites. Adobe also surveyed more than 1,000 U.S. consumers in October as a companion to its findings.

The report notes that retailer conversion rates, which measure the number of people who visit a website and then make a purchase, are predicted to double during the four-hour surge in sales. Adobe says these ‘golden hours of retail’ are due to ‘deal FOMO,’ or the fear of missing out on last-minute deals near the end of the day.”

Beyond Black Friday and Cyber Monday: A Wider Holiday Sales Trend?

And taking a big step back there are several significant trends developing as we head into the 2020s. While Black Friday sales within stores remain a robust and huge part of holiday shopping, a new cybermania is emerging which extends well beyond Cyber Monday. (We may even need a new name – any ideas?)

CNBC recently reported that Cyber Monday will excite shoppers more than Black Friday. Here are some highlights:

Deloitte finds 53 percent of people will rely on Cyber Monday for discounts, while 44 percent say they’re planning to snag promotions on Black Friday this year. Deloitte’s annual holiday study also finds shoppers are expected to spend $1,496 per household this holiday season. The bulk of spending, or $596, is going toward experiences like travel and dining out.

Business Insider offers this very helpful piece which answers the frequent question: Is Black Friday or Cyber Monday Better (for sales)? Here’s an excerpt:

“A good rule of thumb is that Black Friday is a better time to buy newer, big-ticket items. It's also the best day to shop in stores. Cyber Monday is a better day to shop for tech deals and smaller gifts. You'll also see slightly better discounts online.

For items you're likely to buy once a year or less, you'll probably find better discounts on Black Friday. Anything you'd buy as a gift will likely see better discounts on Cyber Monday.”  

Online Safety and Security First

But regardless of when you go online to do your Christmas shopping this holiday season, there remain some tips that can help you stay safe and secure - beyond the frequent calls to change your profile password (or not use the same password) at websites.

To begin, a bit of history. This topic is certainly not new, and many of the themes and basic questions are the same as a decade ago. You don’t want to get disciplined at work for violating policy, so be sure to know what’s allowed and what isn’t allowed.

I find it interesting to look back to where we have been, and compare behaviors to office life today with articles and blogs from a decade ago on Cyber Monday.  

Here are a few relevant examples from the past:

CSO Magazine: Encourage Cyber Monday or Grinch.exe? and Cyber Monday & Redefining Acceptable Use – Again

Government Technology Magazine: Web Sites Struggle on Black Friday: Cyber Monday is Next and Cyber Monday: Are you shopping from work?

Nevertheless, most organizations have loosened their holiday shopping policies and now permit employees (even government employees) to shop at appropriate times over the holiday season on work computers (usually during breaks).

So here are some of my favorite tips to help whether at home or work:

1. Moneycrashers.com:  Avoid Sites With Poor Security Practices –

“Don’t gamble with your identity. Stay away from retail sites with lackadaisical security practices. Two key practices stand out in particular: SSL certificates and Verisign domain protection.

SSL is an encryption protocol that renders it much more difficult (though not impossible) for bad actors to steal payment card information and other personal data during the payment process. Look for “https” at the beginning of the site’s URL. You should never enter payment card information on non-“https” pages, period.

Verisign provides site administrators with a modicum of protection against hacking attacks and malware. Like SSL, it’s not foolproof, but it helps. Sites without Verisign protection are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks, spoofing, and other types of cybercrime.

If you don’t already, consider using a web browser that can identify potentially compromised websites. …”

2. Vitalchek.com – Offers ten basic safety tips for online and offline life. Here’s one that important:

“Use a credit card for your online purchases versus other payment methods. Almost all credit cards have fraud protection, meaning if there is a data breach and your card’s information is taken, you won’t be held responsible for any of the charges. If you are involved in a fraud situation, your credit card provider will handle this and send you a new credit card. The same courtesies may not be extended from other online payment methods like an electronic transfer from your bank account.”

3. State Farm – Offers tips for in the store, in your car and online. Here are their online tips:

Stick to retailers you know and preferably, have shopped with before. Research a business you haven’t purchased from before by checking customer reviews or complaints with the Better Business Bureau. Never commit to a deal that seems too good to be true. Refrain from using pubic Wi-Fi to make purchases, or use a VPN to avoid hackers intercepting your information. Check a webpage’s security by looking for the lock icon in the URL field, and making sure the URL starts with “https”, not just “http”. The “s” means the site is safer and more secure.

Final Thought

One thing to keep in mind is that many people have heard these tips before, but let their guard down over the holidays when rushing for an online deal that is about to expire. Also, people will go places they don’t normally go this time of year to save on presents or get the best deal.

So even if you think you know all of this, double-check to make sure that everyone in your family (and in your office) is following best practices.

Happy shopping.

HK an attractive fintech base

 Cache   

Hong Kong can help you find your fintech future because we are building that future right now.

 

The present, as you know, is in considerable flux here. But we are working to heal our community divide, communicating to find a way forward, to return harmony to Hong Kong. It is a work in progress but, in good time, we will get there.

 

In the meantime, the faltering global economy and Hong Kong's continuing community dissension have brought us a heavy hit. They have dealt a blow to our economic growth and to a great many businesses across sectors.

 

Despite today's very real business challenges, I am here to tell you that Hong Kong remains one of the world's most competitive economies. Last month, the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report ranked Hong Kong third - up from seventh last year. And in terms of digital competitiveness, the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development ranked Hong Kong eighth, up from 11th last year, with a big leap forward in the factor "Future readiness". And earlier this year, the same institute also placed Hong Kong second in the World Competitiveness Yearbook.

 

Indeed, our banks and financial markets continue to operate smoothly.

 

And we remain strongly committed to the Linked Exchange Rate System, which has served Hong Kong well for 36 years, through countless economic and financial cycles.

 

Hong Kong's foreign exchange reserves stand at US$430 billion, more than two times of our monetary base.

 

No less important, the free flow of capital, in and out of Hong Kong, is guaranteed under the Basic Law. It is also driven by Hong Kong's status as one of the world's leading financial centres - and China's international financial capital.

 

It is not surprising that Hong Kong's fintech sector is fast emerging as a regional hub.

 

World-renowned innovation laboratories and accelerator programmes, such as Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab and Deloitte Asia Pacific Blockchain Lab, have established their presence here.

 

According to Accenture, Hong Kong fintech companies have raised US$1.1 billion over the past five years.

 

The number of fintech companies based here now exceeds 600. About 40% of them were started overseas, choosing turning to Hong Kong as their base in the Asian region.

 

Many of them see Hong Kong as their business bridge to the region and, in particular, to the Mainland. Indeed, more than 50% of our fintech companies either operated in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area or plan to expand their business into the region.

 

More than a gateway to the region, Hong Kong is at the heart of fintech innovation in Asia.

 

Earlier this year, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) awarded licences to our first eight virtual banks. We hope to see the launch of some of them by the end of the year. And you will hear more about our virtual banks in various sessions today and tomorrow.

 

Earlier this year, the HKMA also launched phase one of the Open Application Programming Interface (API) framework, allowing technology companies to create fintech-enabled solutions for the banking industry.

 

Today, more than 500 open APIs have been launched by some 20 retail banks. Phase two, which began last month, focuses on customer acquisition. The two phases, covering account information and transactions, are now being developed by the HKMA in close collaboration with the industry.

 

These new initiatives are game changers for the banking sector and Hong Kong's financial services sector as a whole.

 

In September last year, we launched the Faster Payment System, which connects banks and stored-value facilities, or e-wallets, enabling instant fund transfer - seven days a week, 24 hours a day - in both Hong Kong dollar and renminbi.

 

As of September, the Faster Payment System had recorded about 3.5 million registrations. In the month of September alone, the system processed about four million transactions involving $58 billion and RMB1 billion.

 

At the same time, we introduced the common QR code standard for retail payments. It helps merchants, especially small and medium enterprises, use a single QR code to accept payments by various schemes.

 

Last year, our Insurance Authority began its Fast Track scheme, which expedites applications to engage in the insurance business, in or from Hong Kong, solely using digital distribution channels.

 

The first virtual insurer under Fast Track was granted last December. A second authorisation was approved just last month, creating more customer-centric services and products.

 

Ultimately, of course, fintech rises on the human talent behind the technology.

 

It is one of the reasons why the HKMA established the Academy of Finance in June. The academy serves as a centre of excellence in the development of tomorrow's financial leaders.

 

And starting early next year, our Cyberport will launch a fintech training programme for in-service financial professionals, helping professionals from our traditional financial sector embrace the promise of fintech.

 

There is lots more in the fintech pipeline, but allow me, for just a moment, to touch on Shenzhen.

 

Hong Kong and Shenzhen are two of the 11 cities in the Greater Bay Area. Together, we will help drive innovation and technology for this fast-emerging cluster city development of 71 million consumers.

 

The Greater Bay Area is an enormous market, an outsized opportunity for fintech and investment in fintech.

 

Financial Secretary Paul Chan gave these remarks at the opening of Hong Kong Fintech Week 2019 on November 6.

Thales is greatly honored to sign a strategic Cooperation Agreement with Peking University and Ecole Polytechnique for future cooperation on scientific research.

This agreement aims to promote trilateral R&D and joint facility collaborations in areas such as high energy, high density and laser physics.

Branding and reputation key to success at Baby & Stroller China

 Cache   
Nov 06, 2019
Picture: 

HONG KONG --( ASIA TODAY )-- When it comes to baby products, consumer trust is highly important. In China, where the market scale for maternity and baby products increases by an estimated 15% per year, branding is an important indicator of quality and safety. Baby & Stroller China is the first baby fair in Mainland China to be held in the first quarter of the year, and is recognised by international suppliers and Chinese trade buyers as the ideal platform to interact, discover the latest innovative products, and place orders. The fair will be held concurrently with Toy & Edu China and the new fair Licensing China from 6 – 8 March 2020, and will relocate from Guangzhou to Shenzhen.

A dynamic and growing consumer market in China

Further market growth is expected in China since the introduction of the two-child policy. 2018 saw 15.2 million births in China, with 50% being the second child in the family. According to the National Health and Family Planning Commission, this number is expected to climb to between 17.5 million and 21 million annually.

This steadily increasing birth rate in China is paired with a higher level of disposable income, and more parents indicate that they are willing to spend more on products for maternity, baby care and child development. Online forums are a key resource for Chinese parents to share and exchange recommendations, and according to Daxue Consulting, “brand” is a prominent search keyword for baby related item discussions on Chinese online forums. This can favour well-known Western brands, which can add a level of familiarity, assurance and status to purchases.

“At a time when other markets are really flat, China is the most dynamic, growing consumer market in the world – there’s huge growth potential here,” commented Mr Richard Gottlieb, CEO of Global Toy Experts (USA) at the 2019 fair. “This is a huge opportunity for Western companies who are willing to make the effort to come here and do business. There are a lot of people here and a lot of activities. I think there is a lot of energy in China.”

Enhanced pre-show exposure for exhibitors

China has become a key part of many brands’ global strategies, and the fairs are well positioned to offer access to this market with the move to Shenzhen planned for the 2020 edition. With high quality manufacturers and a great number of trade buyers based in the South China region, the location is ideal for overseas exhibitors to meet professional domestic buyers. Past trade buyer backgrounds have also included both retail chain stores and local e-commerce stores, generating new opportunities to connect to a variety of local sales channels.

A business matching service will be available during the fair, which pre-arranges onsite meetings between prospective buyers and exhibitors that suit their needs. In 2019, 85% of the buyers in this programme said that they intended to place real orders during or after the fair.

The fairs are also ideal for emerging brands, who can use the fair to gain exposure and allow Chinese trade buyers to become familiar with new products. Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained, “Reputation is a strong selling point for baby and maternity products in China. These fairs offer a place for face-to-face interaction, which is essential for building a good reputation and maintaining sustainable, long-term business relationships.”

Formerly held in Guangzhou, the fairs will now take place in a new venue, the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Centre, which is conveniently located near Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport and well connected to Hong Kong.

Toy & Edu China, Baby & Stroller China and Licensing China are organised by Guangdong Toy Association, Guangzhou Li Tong Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. The three concurrent shows will take place from 6 – 8 March 2020.

Kazakhstani University helping to revive ancient Silk Road route

 Cache   
Nov 06, 2019
Picture: 

Expert anthropologists and archaeologists from Nazarbayev University are developing the New Silk Road in an ethical, sustainable, and culturally-respectful way, says Dr. Daniel Pugh, Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities. This is after joining The University Alliance of the Silk Road (UASR), an alliance between universities with the aim of reviving the 2000-year-old East to West trading route.

The UASR supports The Belt and Road Initiative, which Chinese President Xi Jinping introduced after visiting Kazakhstan, to create the New Silk Road. The Belt and Road Initiative, along with the UASR, aims to promote educational collaboration and economic growth in countries along the Silk Road, including countries throughout Europe and Asia.

As a trained anthropological archaeologist, Dr. Pugh is partially involved with the UASR via the Heritage Alliance of the New Silk Road; a group of universities and heritage professionals interested in developing the Silk Road in an environmentally sustainable way while preserving the archaeological, historical, and cultural resources of the region.
Founded in 2015, the UASR includes 132 universities spread over five continents, and has become vital to the Ministry of Education of China’s plans for Educational Development along the Silk Road through student exchange and joint research.

The original Silk Road was a network of trade routes integral to the economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions between the East and the West from 2nd century BCE to the 18th century – almost two millennia! Its name is taken from the original use of trading in silk, but would also carry paper, gunpowder, and scientific advancements, as well as philosophies and religions. This trade route was significant in the development of civilisations in South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Africa.

#####

Construction of the New Silk Road puts the archaeological heritage of the road at risk of being destroyed. Dr. Pugh believes that the heritage of the region needs to be protected by up-training those involved in the construction, that the New Silk Road should be used to develop tourism of the area, and that knowledge gained during construction should be developed as a resource for scholars around the world. https://nu.edu.kz/

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 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."

UW to pay $850K to family of windsurfer killed on Lake Mendota

 Cache   
The University of Wisconsin-Madison will pay $850,000 to the family of the man who was killed by a boat while windsurfing on Lake Mendota in 2017, the university confirmed Wednesday.

Yu Chen, 43, of Madison, died on May 31 when he was struck by a UW Lifesaving Station boat while he was windsurfing.

On Wednesday, university spokesman John Lucas said the university had reached a settlement on the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Chen's family and attorney Jay Urban.

In a statement, Lucas said Chen's death was a tragedy.

"We disagree with some of the characterizations of the incident in the statement released by Attorney Urban," Lucas said. "However, we believe reaching a resolution was in everyone's interest and will allow those involved to move forward."

Chen was teaching a lesson at around 6 p.m. when he was struck by the power boat and knocked into the lake, where his body was chopped by the power boat propellers until he died.

Three people on the rescue boat tried to help Chen, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

In June 2018, Dane County District Attorney Ismael R. Ozanne said there is no criminal liability for the staff involved in the crash that resulted in Chen's death.

Chen was born in China and studied nuclear physics at Peking University, and recieved his PH.D. from the University of Michigan, according to his obituary. He moved to Madison in 2007. He was known as a "very kind and genuine man. He was deeply dedicated to his work and helping others," his family said in the obituary.

News 3 Now is awaiting a statement from Urban and the family and will update the story once available.

      南外高中的此次招聘,毕业生通过现场报名、资格审查、学校考核、结构化面试等环节筛选后,共有20人入围体检。南外高中最终引进的20名教师,均为硕士以上学历,其中19人毕业于清华大学、北京大学,13人清北本硕连读。
      
      深中招聘清北毕业生超半数
      
      事实上,如今在深圳当老师,高学历已经十分常见。
      
      9月11日,深圳“四大名校”之首的深圳中学在官网发布赴外公招2019届毕业生拟聘用名单公示,拟聘用28名应届毕业生,全为硕士及以上学位,清北毕业生占比超一半。
      

      
      网友热议:深圳教育水平越来越好
      
      这份耀眼的名单公布后,引来高度关注。
      
      有网友称赞:深圳教育水平是越来越好了。
      

      

      
      28平米学区房半年涨价一百万元
      
      还有网友表示,全国最优质的资源聚集到深圳区,深圳房价又要涨了。
      
      其中,此次招聘的深圳南外是学区房,学区房看来又要涨了。
      

      
      2012年9月学校发展成为一所集幼儿园、小学、初中、高中为一体的现代化集团学校。现有文华学校、科苑小学、高新中学、大冲学校、滨海中学、高级中学、滨海小学、科华学校、科技幼儿园(三所)和桃源中学等十个办学单位共十二个校区。目前,南山区区内南外集团十二个校区主体位于科技园,沿着美丽的深圳湾延伸到蛇口自贸区,学校荣获广东省一级学校、广东省绿色学校、中国教育创新示范单位、全国基础教育名校等荣誉。
      
      而基金君随即选取其中两个校区的学区房来看,起步价近10万一平。
      
      如南山外国语滨海学校,附近校区有5个,房源169套,价格在9.5万至15.11万一平,整套820万起步。
      

      

      
      据媒体,最近几个月,焦虑的深圳家长生生将楼市中的一些“老破小”,买成了“高富帅”。数据显示,对比近三年深圳新房成交均价,2016年时,深圳的房屋均价为53454元/平,到了2019年,价格回到了53023元/平,虽然稍有下跌。然而,几个典型名校学区房,近三年房价涨幅都在30%以上。
      
      特别是小户型。有网友在某论坛说,深圳南山的学区房,28平米半年涨了一百万元。虽然该消息未经证实,但深圳学区房持续暴涨却是不争的事实。
      

      
      深圳在短短40年间创造了经济发展奇迹,但在教育、医疗等民生领域留下了不少欠账。
      
      深圳新闻网数据显示,2010年,公办普高招生26532人,在普高中占比为75%。2019年,为35531万人,累计增长率为38%,在普高中占比78%。整个10年,公办高中录取率有2个年份超过50%,分别在2011年、2014年。
      

      
      随后这一段时间,深圳频频因教育方面的人才引入引发关注。不仅包括上述初中、高中吸引大量清北毕业生来担任教师,还有近30万年薪招聘中小学老师等新闻频频出现。
      
      相信,随着名校高学历毕业生选择来深圳教书成为一种“新常态”,深圳的教育短板将快速补齐。

Comment on Sleepwalking Toward A Crisis – Got Gold? by Fred

 Cache   
The ESF is buying stocks and S&P futures to keep gunning the stock market higher to record levels. They believe (as Allen Greenspan had recently stated) in the "wealth effect" that a rising stock market provides a big boost to the economy. That this alone can prevent a recession with "trickle down" economics for and from the top 2 percent. People are looking at their 401(k)s and rejoicing also. Have you heard anyone on Financial TV wanting this to end. They say, with bonds giving 1-2%, this can only bode well for stocks going higher and higher. It's goldilocks. Max Kaiser just came out and said that China is coming out with a cryptocurrency backed by gold. If and when? Who knows if that is true. He says he has China sources.

Comment on Roku shares plummet 15% on widening loss by Dan

 Cache   
I've got both an Apple TV 4K and a 55" TCL Roku TV. The TV cost less than the Apple TV, for what it's worth. About $250 if I remember. With the Apple TV+ app running on the Roku TV, I almost don't need the Apple TV 4K. But for screen sharing and streaming home videos and ripped DVDs from my Mac, the Apple TV 4K is a must-have. That's confusing to follow, I know, but my point is that I agree with the others here that the Roku is really nice. I'm an Apple fanboy too (can I still be a "boy" at 63?), but that doesn't mean I have to dis everything else. I did a lot of research and settled on the TCL (Chinese) and Roku combo because (as far as I can tell) it doesn't eavesdrop on your conversations and send them to the NSA, Korea, China, or wherever.
          

Comment on Apple to purchase power from Apex Clean Energy’s new wind farm in Texas by kramer

 Cache   
LOL, they may be purchasing green energy but they won't be using much of it unless they get their own private dedicated transmission lines that come from the bird and bat killing wind farms direct to the companies. They'll just up the prices on us to offset the cost. This means low-info 'mericans will be paying for power from green energy sources and the end result will probably result in enriching foundations and rich people. Meanwhile, we'll be using less oil and gas which means less demand for it which means it'll be cheaper on the global market for China and LDCs to buy.
          

Comment on U.S. senator blasts Apple for ‘risking compromise to authoritarianism’ in China by solomé

should be noted that chairman mao is highly revered amongst the chinese people. hmm, wonder where they get their world view ..surely, not soley from their own dictatorial government, those beloved officials who brought peace to tiananmen square. and, mao, friend of tibet, bringer of cultural revolution and the great leap forward. the truth is homo sapiens are wild animals with a brain and require a legal, guiding set of principles like the US constitution that can continually force them into a court of law to be righted when they get wrong. and, they get wrong a lot. al least, we have that. it's abhorrent that we humans have done horrible things over the millenia. i'm not making excuses for america but, at least we have access to a broader view of the world and ourselves. reminds of the this slavery issue. it's atrocious but, it didn't start in america but it did end in america. bottom line, china is a thief and has been burglarizing america for too long. sorry, i tend to ramble, at times, unfocused.

Most i doubt have even spoken to Chinese person or visited Asia. BTW some local news reports show arrested Hong Kong ‘protestors’ as former triad (mafia) members who were looting shops etc (just as Apple hinted at in their statement) Blogs say some of those arrested claim they were paid and armed by USA agents Also imagine this, try Changing USA to China in headlines for the last 20 years and see how you feel like: “China invades Iraq on pretext of WMD. Chinese kills hundreds of iraqis (that did not attack China) and begins decades long war that kills, maims hundreds of thousands. Chinese invasion causes rise of ISIS and destabilizes region all the way to Syria causing millions of refugees to flee. Hundreds of Chinese drone strikes kills thousands including women and children. etc: Many believe China did this to control middle East oil. China did not attack Saudi arabia although most of the 9/11 attackers hitting beijing came from Saudi Arabia. “ see when you put china instead of USA it looks different huh? That’s how the world sees USA like it or not. Americans live in a world of their own media and politicians illusion

Irgendjemand hat in China offenbar eine Wasserkocher-Welle losgetreten, das hier ist bereits das dritte Angebote innerhalb weniger Tage.

Zudem sieht er in meinen Augen recht schick aus, gerade mit der blauen Beleuchtung.

Der Preis ergibt sich durch einen Coupon auf der Produktseite.

Für ein vergleichbares, aber optisch weniger edles Modell zahlt man 19,99€.

Die Rezensionen fallen soweit okay aus, ReviewMeta hat auch nur wenig zu meckern.

Abzüge gibt es deshalb, weil einige Kunden mit undichten Geräten zu tun hatten. Da hiervon jedoch längst nicht jeder betroffen ist, ist das wohl ein klarer Fall von "auf dem Seeweg etwas viel Wellengang ausgesetzt gewesen".

Las reacciones a la sentencia contra el Procés de Catalunya se han producido desde muchos ámbitos sociales y culturales, también internacionales...

_Las reacciones a la sentencia contra el Procés de Catalunya se han producido desde muchos ámbitos sociales y culturales, también internacionales. Sin embargo, los medios de comunicación nacionales siguen tratando estas protestas como una cuestión de orden público provocada por independentistas exaltados.

 

Durante los últimos tres años, el gobierno de Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ha realizado tantos recortes de libertades que resulta imposible hacer el recuento. Centenares de cargos electos y los colíderes del partido democrático HDP —una coalición formada por el movimiento kurdo y parte de la izquierda turca— han sido encarcelados; decenas de miles de maestros, jueces y funcionarios, purgados por motivos ideológicos. Lo relevante para la comparación con la sentencia del Procés no son los números —la escala turca es inmensamente mayor que la española— sino la naturalidad con la que televisiones, periódicos, intelectuales, tertulianos y tuiteros turcos aceptan la represión. Están convencidos de que viven en una democracia cuasi perfecta y cualquier crítica a la falta de libertad es interpretada como un ataque de los terroristas kurdos y una conspiración internacional antiturca.

 

La sentencia dictada por el Supremo es una vergüenza. Condena a activistas sociales a nueve años de prisión por convocar movilizaciones pacíficas. Condena a los miembros del Govern a penas más altas que la mayoría de los 33 procesados por el golpe de Estado del 23F o del intento de golpe de Ynestrillas (padre), que en 1980 fue condenado a seis meses de prisión por intentar asaltar con un tanque el Palacio de la Moncloa. Y es una vergüenza la naturalización de la represión por parte de televisiones, periódicos, intelectuales, tertulianos y tuiteros españoles. Están convencidos de que viven en una democracia cuasi perfecta y cualquier crítica a la falta de libertad es interpretada como un ataque de los secesionistas catalanes y una conspiración antiespañola.

 

PENAS DE ENTRE 9 Y 13 AÑOS PARA LOS ACUSADOS DEL 1-0

 

Porque fuera de España, igual que pasa con la represión de Turquía, resulta obvio para cualquiera con una mínima sensibilidad democrática. Recibo mensajes de cargos de Syriza preguntando si de verdad el Tribunal Supremo había dictado las penas que reportaban los diarios o era un fallo de traducción. El diputado tory (conservador y unionista) escocés Murdo Fraser declara que “aunque comprendo que se trata de un asunto que compete a los tribunales y al poder judicial español, no veo el sentido de que el Gobierno de Madrid encarcele a los líderes catalanes por una acción esencialmente política”.

 

Otro escocés, Iain Macwhirter, ex rector de la Universidad de Edimburgo, periodista de la BBC y comentarista político de The Herald and the Sunday Herald, escribe “¡13 años por ayudar a organizar un referéndum pacífico! Incalificable. Lamento que la Unión Europea no haya condenado esta violación de los derechos civiles fundamentales”. La laborista Emily Thornberry proclama en la Cámara de los Comunes que “la sentencia dictada ayer en Madrid contra los políticos independentistas catalanes es innecesaria, desproporcionada y totalmente contraproducente”.

 

El Bloco portugués va más allá. Condena “a reiterada tentativa por parte do Estado Espanhol em procurar resolver um conflito eminentemente político através da repressão e da prisão” y exige “à libertação de todos os presos políticos catalães, ao regresso dos exilados sem represálias e ao fim da repressão na Catalunha”. Los tertulianos españoles, sin embargo, ven lógica la sentencia. Es el Estado de Derecho. Somos una democracia ejemplar. Esto no es un problema para las libertades en España, solo es el fruto de la espiral demente de los independentistas catalanes.

 

La policía le revienta un ojo a un chaval —uno más, como en el 1 de octubre, en las huelgas, en los desalojos— en las protestas del Prat. En Eldiario.es lo cuentan así: “Un hombre ha sido herido por el estallido de su globo ocular”. Qué mala suerte que te estalle un ojo durante una manifestación. En La Sexta dicen que le están operando de urgencia pero “a esta hora no se puede asegurar que vaya a perder la visión”. La misma tele llama “brutal agresión” al manotazo que desequilibra a María Grima, la militante de Vox que provoca con una rojigualda a los manifestantes en Tarragona. El País sube la apuesta por el periodismo de calidad con el siguiente tuit: “Una madre con su hijo en brazos hace una peineta a los cientos de manifestantes que están cortando la C-58 en Terrasa”. Piqueras en Tele5 se muestra preocupadísimo por los turistas y los contenedores de Barcelona. Jorge Bustos dice que Barcelona es una ciudad sin ley pero no deberíamos perder el tiempo comentando lo que dice un gilipollas.

 

La PAH publica un contundente comunicado expresando la preocupación por la criminalización de la protesta, que a partir de ahora podrá ser considerada sedición. Ecologistas en Acción considera que la sentencia del Tribunal Supremo contiene una inaceptable criminalización de la protesta y de la desobediencia civil.

 

Da lo mismo que haya festivales como el Primavera Sound que publican comunicados criticando la sentencia, los medios nacionales siguen tratando las protestas como una cuestión de orden público.

 

En Catalunya la reacción va mucho más allá del independentismo y el activismo. El festival de de Sitges, el Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona, el Barça, el Primavera Sound publican comunicados criticando la sentencia. Da lo mismo, los medios de ámbito estatal siguen tratando las protestas como una cuestión de orden público provocada por independentistas exaltados. La radio del Primavera Sound suspende la programación y anima a salir a la calle. El festival Womanz se aplaza. Varias editoriales anuncian que no tendrán lugar presentaciones de libros. El programa deportivo La Sotana cancela su emisión y publica tuits desde el aeropuerto. La reacción de enfado a tu alrededor es inmensa pero cuando enciendes la tele solo ves una caricatura.

 

La vicepresidenta Carmen Calvo apela a la mayoría silenciosa, ese concepto acuñado por el neofascismo durante el largo 68 italiano, popularizado por Nixon y utilizado por los políticos más despreciables de las últimas décadas. “La mayoría de los catalanes ayer hizo vida normal”, afirma Calvo. Viene a decir que la dictadura militar de Videla no fue para tanto porque solo desapareció a 30.000 personas y 24,5 millones de argentinos hicieron vida normal.

 

El diputado del PSC José Zaragoza publica un tuit diciendo “Cuando tienes que bloquear aeropuertos, vías de tren y carreteras para que la gente no pueda ir al trabajo es que tu movilización política ha fracasado”. Cuando en Hong Kong consiguieron paralizar el aeropuerto estuvo claro que el decreto de extradición a China iba a ser derogado, aunque es probable que este señor no lea prensa internacional y sea tan ignorante como parece. Pero es que ese tuit demuestra un absoluto desconocimiento de la Historia de los partidos socialistas, incluyendo el suyo, durante los dos siglos pasados.

 

Pablo Ordaz publica en El País que “durante muchos días, incluyendo los fines de semana y alguna que otra madrugada, Marchena ha ido redactando la sentencia en su casa, a veces en pijama”. Más allá de la imagen que le venga a cada cual a la cabeza al pensar en Marchena con pijama, el masaje de Ordaz al magistrado nos deja otra perla, mucho más preocupante: “La sentencia no tiene en cuenta los centenares de testigos por su profunda carga emocional”. Es decir, “los varios centenares de testigos que declararon en el plenario ofrecieron una versión filtrada por una profunda carga emocional”. Marchena no quiere que seas un maricón que llora. Sé un hombre, joder. Si te pega la policía, te jodes y declaras sin emoción.

 

Once periodistas han sido agredidos por la policía. Todos ellos iban perfectamente acreditados con los distintivos de prensa visibles. A varios de ellos les han disparado proyectiles mientras grababan las cargas. En TVE uno dice “Por suerte hoy nuestros compañeros han podido trabajar sin presiones o insultos de los independentistas”. Ningún otro tertuliano le discute esa barbaridad o le recuerda a sus compañeros heridos. Un apunte contra el corporativismo: si destaco las agresiones policiales a periodistas no es porque sean más graves que golpear a cualquier otra persona. Lo grave es que la policía pega a la prensa para poder hostiar más fuerte y sin testigos a todos los manifestantes.

 

LA VERDADERA RUPTURA

 

La clave de todo la dan en Twitter el periodista de El Salto Jose Durán Rodríguez y el miembro de Zemos98 Pedro Jiménez: “Llegas a casa, pones la tele, escuchas a los tertulianos de la televisión pública hablando de la actuación de los Mossos hoy y te preguntas en qué momento has dejado de vivir en el mismo planeta que ellos”.

 

Llegas a casa, pones la tele, escuchas a los tertulianos de la televisión pública hablando de la actuación de los Mossos hoy y te preguntas en qué momento has dejado de vivir en el mismo planeta que ellos.

 

Una parte significativa de España —la parte sobrerrepresentada en los medios, la cultura y la política— ha decidido vivir en un mundo de fantasía. Su mundo, en el que la Constitución que nos dimos entre todos garantiza nuestros derechos y libertades gracias una transición modélica que cerró las heridas abiertas por una guerra civil en la que hubo excesos en ambos bandos. Una fantasía obscena que solo se sostiene gracias a la repetición machacona del mantra. Un mundo ficticio pero mucho más cómodo de habitar que la jodida realidad. Una ensoñación donde la policía protege los derechos fundamentales, los jueces interpretan la norma conforme a las garantías de un Estado social y de derecho, los representantes políticos velan por el bien común y los medios de comunicación ejercen su función de control del poder.

 

¿Alguien se acuerda del “sin violencia cualquier proyecto político se puede defender”? Se lo dijimos a ETA durante décadas para exigirle que dejara de matar. Con esta sentencia queda claro que cualquier proyecto político se puede defender, pero si eres independentista te tendrás que conformar con defenderlo. Puedes ser independentista si aceptas que tu propuesta política nunca se someterá al refrendo de la ciudadanía. La sentencia dice con recochineo: “Hemos de insistir en que la libertad ideológica de los acusados quedó incólume a lo largo del proceso”. Es la misma clase de cinismo que la famosa frase atribuida al dictador ugandés Idi Amin: “Hay libertad de expresión. Lo que no garantizo es que haya libertad después de expresarte”.

So Trump gets impeached and fired. Bingo, new world recession.!!!!! New guy lets China walk all over USA to stop trade war. North Korea, goes back to its old habits. AND US Troops start going on overseas duty The borders are opened for anyone to go to America. Has anyone really thought thru the impact of what might happen if Trump is impeached. So my guess is that the Senate will huff and puff but not impeach. The House will drag out the impeachment thing in an attempt to smear Trump (ie a PR exercise) to help whoever the democratic candidate is.

În ciuda acțiunilor sale, statul rus se află în plin declin!

În ciuda acțiunilor sale, statul rus se află în plin declin!

 

În cadrul articolului publicat de prestigioasa organizație non-profit Project Syndicate, ne este adus aminte că în anul 1959, liderul sovietic Nikita Hrușciov a adus laude Uniunii Sovietice, spunând că o să întreacă SUA până în anul 1970. Dar URSS s-a prăbușit, lăsând o Rusie ofilită în mod semnificativ, cu slabe șanse de revenire.

De asemenea, Rusia este puternic dependentă de exporturile sale de energie. PIB-ul său este de doar 1,7 trilioane de dolari, pe când PIB-ul SUA este de 21 bilioane de dolari.  Azi, PIB-ul Rusiei este o șeptime din cel al Chinei, pe când în 1989 economia sovietică era de două ori cât a statului chinez.

Universitățile din Rusia nu sunt calificate în top 100, sistemul de sănătate publică e slab, speranța de viață medie este 72 de ani, mai scurtă cu 5 ani față de Europa, iar populația sa ar putea să scadă de la 145 de milioane la 121 milioane până la jumătatea secolului, conform rezultatelor unui proiect derulat de Națiunile Unite. Mai mult, instituțiile sunt corupte și problemele demografice și de sănătate sunt grave. Planurile președintelui Medvedev de modernizare nu au fost realizate din cauza corupției generalizate.  

După sancțiunile statelor occidentale, Putin s-a orientat către China. Deși există o cooperare și un parteneriat între cele două state, obstacole serioase pentru o alianță ruso-chineză persistă, neîncrederea fiind unul dintre acestea. De exemplu, în secolul al XIX-lea nici o țară nu a luat mai mult pământ de la China cum a luat Rusia. Toate aceste probleme pe care Rusia le întâmpină, arată că nu este la nivelul SUA și că Rusia nu poate să ajungă la nivelul SUA.

Un parlamentar din Hong Kong, Junius Ho, susținător al politicilor Beijingului, a fost înjunghiat de un protestatar

Parlamentarul, rănit, împreună cu alți martori, l-au imobilizat pe atacator imediat după incident.
Accidentul este ultimul dintr-o serie de atacuri împotriva persoanelor care susțin oricare dintre părțile crizei din Hong Kong. Protestatarii pro-democrație, l-au acuzat în luna iulie pe Junius Ho de organizarea de atacuri împotriva civililor în stația locală Yuen Long.
Ulterior, oficialul din Hong Kong a transmis că atacatorii, din iulie, își „apără casa și oamenii lor", dar a negat vreo implicare în incident. Acesta a fost văzut dând mâna cu atacatorii din stația Yuen Long.
Protestele în Hong Kong, care deseori au fost marcate de incidente violente între demonstranți și forțele de ordine, au izbucnit în urmă cu cinci luni, ca reacţie la controversatul proiect de lege ce ar fi facilitat extrădările spre China continentală. Manifestanţii contestă politicile Guvernului local pro-Beijing, condus de Carrie Lam.

China Introduces Restrictions On Video Games For Minors

 Cache   

Chinese officials are cracking down on youth online gaming, which they say negatively affects the health and learning of minors. Official guidelines released Tuesday outline a new curfew and time restrictions for gamers under 18.

Six measures were outlined in the guidelines, aimed at preventing minors "from indulging in online games." Among them is a ban on online video games for minors between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. Minors will also be restricted to 90 minutes of game time everyday except national holidays, when they are allowed a maximum of three hours.

Online microtransactions, which many view as lucrative and gouging, are also targeted. These purchases are capped monthly at $28 or $57, depending on a minor's age.

China's new directives implicate adult gamers too. A state spokesperson says that everyone, regardless of age, is prohibited from playing games that depict "sexual explicitness, goriness, violence and gambling."

Chinese officials will also require everyone to register accounts for online games using their real name and phone number, which will help government entities to regulate playing time.

"The State Administration of Press and Publication is working with the Ministry of Public Security to lead the building of a unified identification system, which would provide user identification services to video game companies, so that they can accurately verify the identity of minors," a government statement said. "We are also going to gradually perfect and enrich the functions of the identification system, to achieve gaming time data sharing across platforms, so we could know and therefore restrict the total time every minor spends on gaming across platforms."

It is not clear how offline single-player games factor into the new guidelines.

The regulations focus on furthering President Xi Jinping's continued anti-video game efforts. In 2018, Jinping called for officials to take action on the large amount of nearsighted children. In addition to heavy schoolwork and mobile phones, Jinping blamed video game addiction for the vast number of myopic children.

Video game addiction was officially recognized as a mental health condition by the World Health Organization in 2018. The criteria doesn't include a certain amount of hours played. Rather, a video game addict is described as someone with an inability to stop playing even though it interferes with other important areas of life.

Market research firm Niko Partners reported that digital game revenue in China will reach $33 billion in 2019, making the East Asian country one of the world's largest video game markets.

China's market power was perhaps underscored when Blizzard Entertainment suspended an esports player in October after he voiced support for the Hong Kong liberation protests, prompting many to accuse the American company of pandering to Chinese interests.

In China, Kids Of Unwed Mothers May Be Barred From Public Health Care, Education

 Cache   

When Liu, a 31-year-old Chinese insurance firm manager, learned she was pregnant in 2017, she resolved to keep her baby.

She tried to hide the fact that she was unmarried and pregnant from her colleagues at the private insurance firm where she works in Shanghai. She paid her own hospital bills rather than rely on public insurance and risk exposing her secret to the hospital and her employer.

Now the mother of a 22-month-old girl, Liu, who declined to share her full name for fear of social retribution, is facing a new challenge: accessing public health care and education for her child in Shanghai, where she has lived for nine years.

"I just felt this was a small, living being, that I should keep her and that I had to work hard to create the conditions under which I could raise her," says Liu, a native of central China's Henan province, who moved to the east coast megacity of Shanghai for her job.

Even though Liu's parents and close friends support her choice to become a mother, she says that most colleagues at her workplace do not know she has a child. "Employers would wonder, 'Is it just you who cares for the child? If so, then how will you focus on work?' " she says.

Changing social mores and economics are affecting parenthood in China. Chinese women are increasingly financially independent. The marriage rate has dipped in recent years, and couples are divorcing more often than in the past. According to census data, women are postponing marriage and motherhood. And some are having children on their own.

But the country's exhaustively detailed family code makes no mention of single parents. It is a topic so neglected that no official statistics are available on how many children are raised by single parents. This leaves many Chinese women stuck in a legal gray zone where they are unable to access basic public services for themselves and their children.

"There is a blank space when it comes to single parents. There is a catchall clause [for punishing] 'any other situations that violate family planning,' " says Li Jun, a lawyer at Shanghai Dehehantong Law Firm, who is fighting a case in a Shanghai court to win maternity insurance coverage for unmarried women.

Family laws of the land

Neither the Population and Family Planning Law nor the Marriage Law contains language expressly allowing or forbidding single parenthood. Instead, the legislation presumes that anyone having children is married. It also excludes LGBT citizens. Same-sex couples cannot get married or register as a civil union in mainland China.

The treatment of single mothers is left up to the discretion of local governments, which have adopted a wide variety of stances. Many provincial authorities have denied the children of single mothers hukou, or household registration, akin to a social security number allowing them to go to school and access services such as health care. Other provinces have required single mothers to pay a "social support" fee, usually several hundred dollars, as a penalty for violating family planning rules.

"Local governments apply this differently to individual cases. ... First- and second-tier cities do not enforce such punitive policies anymore. But in more provincial places or places where family planning laws are not amended or executed properly, these instances still exist," says Li, the Shanghai lawyer.

Liu, the single mother, was able to get hukou for her daughter in Henan province, where she's from. But the authorities in Shanghai, aware she has a child without a husband, docked several points from her residency permit application in the city because she had violated family planning guidelines.

This permit is crucial — it would allow Liu and her child to access public services in Shanghai, rather than having to travel back to Henan. Without the permit, Liu's child will not be able to attend Shanghai public schools or access the city's public health insurance.

Liu had waited years to accrue the necessary points to apply but now finds herself stymied from qualifying: "They consider me to have violated family planning regulations," she says. "This is the thing I'm most ashamed of."

In spite of these limits, experts have warned that China needs to have more children to avoid a population decline in the future. The country faces a labor shortage as a result of its one-child policy, which authorities used to justify often brutal population control, including forced sterilization and abortions. The government ended the one-child rule in 2016 and now permits parents to have two children.

However, China's ruling Communist Party has not relinquished control over family planning.

"The Communist Party in one way or another has always been active in shaping families and encouraging a particular kind of family," notably the nuclear family, says Stuart Gietel-Basten, a professor and demography expert at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. "Under Mao, it was, 'You should have more children, right — China should grow.' And then in the '70s it's, 'OK, you should have much fewer children.' "

More recently, party literature has said "having children is a family matter but also a national matter."

Challenges of surrogacy

Another group of single parents doesn't meet China's definition of family: women who have children through surrogacy, even though it is expensive — and illegal in China.

Some Chinese women with financial means have tried to get around the ban by using services abroad.

That's something Lee Qianmo, a 41-year-old skin care company executive, is considering.

She became pregnant in 2018. But after a severe episode of depression, she made a painful decision to terminate the pregnancy, something that has left her conscience-stricken.

Yet she does not rule out having a child in the future.

"I haven't always thought about having a kid. It's only after seeing my niece growing up, I started thinking that I should leave that option open for myself in case I ever find it nice to have a child," she says.

As an unmarried woman, Lee would have a difficult time qualifying for adoption.

The alternatives also pose challenges. Although procedures such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization are permitted in China, most Chinese hospitals do not provide egg-freezing services. The 2001 law banning surrogacy also stipulates that assisted reproductive technology can be used by only those who are legally allowed to have children — heterosexual married couples.

Going abroad for surrogacy is one solution. After finding a surrogate mother in a country where the procedure is legal, with the help of an agency, a Chinese woman can keep tabs on the surrogate throughout the pregnancy and visit for the birth. Then she can register as the legal guardian back in China.

So far, Lee has spent tens of thousands of dollars on fertility treatments and gives herself a shot of hormones as part of her egg retrieval process after each 10-hour workday. She says she has not made up her mind about where to store her frozen eggs, given that the timing of the egg-harvesting procedure depends on the success of her hormone injections. But she hopes to freeze her eggs before year's end and might consider surrogacy in four years, when she turns 45, she says. Countries such as Thailand and Russia are at the top of Lee's list because surrogacy is legal there and those countries are close to China.

Now fearful of the risks associated with childbirth, Lee says that without surrogacy, she may not ever want a child.

"I choose surrogacy," she says, "but I support women who wish to give birth to their children. I find those women very admirable."

Treasuries Regain Ground Following Recent Weakness

 Cache   

After moving sharply lower over the three previous sessions, treasuries regained some ground during trading on Wednesday.

Bond prices initially moved higher and saw some further upside as the day progressed. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, slid 5.2 basis points to 1.814 percent.

Bargain hunting contributed to the early strength among treasuries, with the ten-year yield pulling back off its highest closing level in nearly two months.

Treasuries saw further upside after a report from Reuters said a meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping could be delayed until December.

A senior Trump administration official told Reuters discussions continue over terms of phase one of the trade deal and a venue for a meeting between Trump and Xi.

Sites in Europe and Asia have been suggested for the meeting, with Sweden and Switzerland among the possibilities, while Trump's suggestion of Iowa appears to have been ruled out, the official said.

The official said China's latest push for more tariff rollbacks was not expected to derail progress toward an interim deal but noted that it was still possible an agreement would not be reached.

Treasuries remained firmly positive after the Treasury Department revealed this month's auction of $27 billion worth of ten-year notes attracted above average demand.

The ten-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.809 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.49, while the ten previous ten-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.42.

The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

Looking ahead, the Treasury is due to announce the results of its auction of $19 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Thursday.

A report on weekly jobless claims may also attract attention on Thursday, although traders are likely to remain focus on any news regarding a trade deal.

Gold Futures Rebound, Settle Notably Higher

 Cache   

Gold prices moved higher on Wednesday, rebounding from recent losses, as the dollar weakened a bit and equities stayed largely subdued.

Reports about the U.S. and China considering rolling back some tariffs, as they aim to finalize a partial trade deal, helped trigger some interest in the yellow metal.

The dollar index weakened to a low of 97.78 earlier in the day, and despite having recovered to 97.96 by mid afternoon, was still trailing its previous closing level.

Gold futures for December ended up $9.40, or about 0.6%, at $1,493.10 an ounce.

Gold futures for December had declined by about 1.8% on Tuesday.

Silver futures for December ended up $0.030, at $17.598 an ounce, while Copper futures for December settled at $2.6650 per pound, down $0.0355 from previous close.

In economic news, preliminary data from the Labor Department showed labor productivity in the U.S. unexpectedly edged lower in the third quarter, dipping by 0.3%, after spiking by an upwardly revised 2.5% in the second quarter.

The drop came as a surprise to economists, who had expected productivity to climb by 0.9% compared to the 2.3% jump originally reported for the previous month.

Meanwhile, the Labor Department said unit labor costs soared by 3.6% in the third quarter after surging up by a downwardly revised 2.4% in the second quarter.

Economists had expected unit labor costs to jump by 2.2% compared to the 2.6% spike originally reported for the previous month.

In trade news, the U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are widely expected to sign phase one of the agreement sometime this month.

The two sides are working to narrow their differences enough to sign a "phase one" trade deal that could allow the U.S. to scrap tariffs on about $156 billion worth of Chinese imports currently set to take effect on December 15.

According to reports, both countries are looking for a location to sign the so-called phase one trade deal that would thaw tensions between the two economic powerhouses.

U.S. Labor Productivity Unexpectedly Dips 0.3% In Q3

 Cache   

Labor productivity in the U.S. unexpectedly edged lower in the third quarter, according to preliminary data released by the Labor Department on Wednesday.

The report said labor productivity dipped by 0.3 percent in the third quarter after spiking by an upwardly revised 2.5 percent in the second quarter.

The drop in productivity came as a surprise to economists, who had expected productivity to climb by 0.9 percent compared to the 2.3 percent jump originally reported for the previous month.

The unexpected decrease in productivity, a measure of output per hour, came as output climbed by 2.1 percent compared to a 2.4 percent increase in hours worked.

Meanwhile, the Labor Department said unit labor costs soared by 3.6 percent in the third quarter after surging up by a downwardly revised 2.4 percent in the second quarter.

Economists had expected unit labor costs to increase by 2.2 percent compared to the 2.6 percent spike originally reported for the previous month.

The substantial increase in labor costs reflected the drop in productivity as well as a 3.3 percent jump in hourly compensation.

Real hourly compensation, which takes changes in consumer prices into account, showed a much more modest 1.4 percent increase in the third quarter.

Compared to the same quarter a year ago, productivity in the third quarter was up by 1.4 percent, as output increased by 2.3 percent and hours worked rose by 0.9 percent.

Unit labor costs were up by 3.3 percent year-over-year, with hourly compensation spiking by 4.5 percent and real hourly compensation climbing by 2.7 percent.

Andrew Hunter, Senior U.S. Economist at Capital Economics, noted the annual rate of productivity growth is still slightly above the previous five-year average but illustrates that the acceleration in growth that began last year is already fading.

"That isn't a huge surprise given the recent weakness of business investment, with declines in both the second and third quarters meaning that the earlier wave of capital deepening has now gone into reverse," Hunter said.

"Weak investment can in turn partly be blamed on trade uncertainty, in which case we could see a rebound if a deal with China is eventually agreed," he added. "But it also reflects the fact that weaker demand is contributing to the re-emergence of spare capacity, reducing the need for firms to invest."

Hunter said he remains relatively optimistic about the longer-run prospects for productivity growth due to emerging technologies like AI and driverless vehicles but noted there are currently still no sign of a breakout from the weak post-crisis trend in productivity growth.

Teatro Ghione. “Il mercante di Venezia di William Shakespeare dal 7 al 17 novembre

ROMA - Al Teatro Ghione di Roma da  giovedi  7 a domenica 17  novembre, lo spettacolo “Il Mercante di Venezia”, con: Mariano Rigillo, Romina Mondello, Ruben Rigillo, Cristina Chinaglia, Francesco Maccarinelli, Francesca Valtorta, Antonio Rampino, Mauro Racanati, Simone Ciampi, Giulia Pelliciari, scritto e diretto da Giancarlo Marinelli.

 Nel “Mercante di Venezia” i temi affrontati sono quelli eternamente cari al Bardo ma anche al compianto mattatore toscano: il conflitto tra generazioni; la bellezza che muore e che si riscatta ad un tempo, (sullo sfondo una Venezia divisa tra Thomas Mann e Giorgio Baffo); la giovinezza che deve fare i conti con le trasformazioni del tempo e della società, (la crisi della potenza economica e culturale lagunare, assorbita da un carnevale metafora di una persistente primavera della vita che è “perenne amare i sensi e non pentirsi”, come direbbe Sandro Penna).

A perpetuare una strada già solcata con successo, (il precedente “Mercante” da me diretto era interpretato dal grande Giorgio Albertazzi), si staglia l’eccellenza scenica di Mariano Rigillo nei panni di Shylock. Uno degli attori fondamentali nelle mie visioni che, di fatto, mi ha tenuto a battesimo, (Biennale Teatro Venezia 2007, “La sposa persiana”). Con lui, Romina Mondello nella principessa “terrestre” Porzia, e una nutrita schiera di giovani attori pieni di talento.(Giancarlo Marinelli)

Madrid Fusión: La Comunidad abre sus vinos a Iberoamérica

 Cache   
La Bogotá Madrid Fusión arranca este jueves en la capital colombiana, y hasta allí se ha marchado la consejera de Medio Ambiente, Paloma Martín, junto con el presidente del Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen (D.O.) «Vinos de Madrid», Antonio Reguilón, con un objetivo en mente: lanzar un salvavidas a los caldos madrileños, que sufren la incertidumbre por los aranceles de Estados Unidos y el Brexit. Los vinos de la denominación de origen Madrid los producen 3.082 viticultores, que cuentan con 50 bodegas y 272 marcas repartidas por cuatro zonas: Arganda, Navalcarnero, San Martín de Valdeiglesias y El Molar. El año pasado se vendimiaron 16,1 millones de kilos de uva, y se facturaron unos cuatro millones de botellas. El 30 por ciento se exporta Del total de la producción, aproximadamente un 30 por ciento se exporta, sobre todo a Estados Unidos –en torno al 11 por ciento– y a otros países de la Unión Europea, sobre todo Alemania. Pero también a China. Ahora, con la participación en el I Congreso Internacional Bogotá Madrid Fusión, organizado por la Cámara de Comercio de Bogotá y Vocento, los responsables madrileños buscan abrir los vinos de la región a otro mercado:el iberoamericano. Será una forma de conjurar la posible caída de exportaciones que puede producirse a consecuencia de los nuevos aranceles que quiere imponer el presidente norteamericano Donald Trump. Los vinos de Madrid, según los expertos, se caracterizan por su alta calidad, lo que les convierte en «embajadores» privilegiados para que la Comunidad gane posiciones a nivel internacional. «Aunque queda camino por recorrer, estamos instaurando una muy buena marca gracias al esfuerzo y al trabajo de los viticultores y bodegueros madrileños», señaló la consejera Paloma Martín. El Gobierno regional madrileño ha incrementado en un 120 por ciento las ayudas a los vinos de la región con denominación de origen. El año pasado se destinaron a este fin 208.982 euros, y recientemente se ha aprobado una partida de 460.000 euros para el mismo fin. Además, en la actualidad se está realizando, junto con la Cámara de Comercio de Madrid, un estudio de los alimentos de calidad diferenciada de la región, para hacer más fácil destacar en el mercado exterior. Chefs de Madrid La consejera de Medio Ambiente aprovechará, para realizar esta promoción de los caldos madrileños, la oportunidad que supone el escaparate de Bogotá Madrid Fusión, un evento en el que participarán más de una veintena de chefs internacionales entre los que destacan los madrileños Mario Sandoval, Mario Vallés y Carlos Collado de Le Cordón Bleu, además de otros como Quique Dacosta, Joan Roca, Nacho Manzano y Macarena Castro. Precisamente el madrileño Mario Sandoval va a realizar en el Bogotá Madrid Fusión un «showcooking» sobre las variaciones del cochinillo, y presentará tapas tan creativas como el cochinillo lacado, el paté de lechón al amontillado o la paletilla confitada con salsa cantonesa. Del total de vinos con denominación de origen Madrid, un 64 por ciento son tintos y un 28 por ciento son blancos. Existen, además, otras siete figuras con denominación de origen: los aceites, la carne de la Sierra de Guadarrama, el Chinchón, las aceitunas de Campo Real, la etiqueta de agricultura ecológica y la marca de garantía Huerta de Villa del Prado. Sólo dedicadas al cultivo de uva de vino, hay 12.000 hectáreas en la región. De ellas, 8.726 corresponden a la D. O.

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!

Macron warns of 'profound shift' in Iran deal as new report finds Tehran is dominant power in Middle East

Macron warns of 'profound shift' in Iran deal as new report finds Tehran is dominant power in Middle EastIran’s breach of the 2015 nuclear agreement by enriching uranium at an underground facility “marks a profound shift” which could signal the ultimate collapse of the deal, Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday.  The French president, who has worked vigorously to save the nuclear deal since Donald Trump withdrew the US last year, said he was deeply alarmed Iran’s decision to resume enrichment at Fordow, a nuclear facility carved into a mountain. “I think that for the first time, Iran has decided in an explicit and blunt manner to leave the JCPOA agreement, which marks a profound shift,” Mr Macron said during a visit to China.  His comments mark the gloomiest public assessment yet by a European leader about the chances of salvaging the agreement after the US withdrawal and as Iran continues to escalate its breaches of the deal.  Meanwhile, a new report claims Iran has become the dominant power when it comes to fighting wars in the Middle East as a result of the “networks of influence” it has built throughout the region. Mr Macron spoke shortly after Iran began injecting uranium gas into 1,044 centrifuges at Fordow, a facility that Iran hid from the world until 2009 and which Western and Israeli officials have long feared could be used for developing a nuclear weapon.  Iran tensions | Read more The 2015 nuclear agreement forbids any uranium enrichment at Fordow and Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president acknowledged the sensitivity of the site when he announced the move earlier this week.  Mr Rouhani insisted that the move was reversible and said Iran would return to full compliance with the agreement if European countries found a way around US sanctions to deliver the economic benefits Iran was promised in 2015.    The reopening of Fordow comes days after Iran announced it was deploying advanced new centrifuges that can enrich uranium faster. But neither move brings Iran significantly closer to obtaining a nuclear weapon. A weapon would require uranium enriched at 90 per cent, whereas Iran is currently enriching at around 5 per cent.  Iran insists it has no intention of developing a nuclear weapon. The latest breaches have nonetheless alarmed European states and Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, repeated his warning this week it would take military action to stop Iran getting a bomb.  “This is not only for our security and our future; it’s for the future of the Middle East and the world,” he said.  Amid the growing tensions, it emerged that Iran briefly detained an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspector last week and seized her travel documents, the first such encounter since the nuclear deal.  Q&A; | The 2015 Iran nuclear deal Iran confirmed it had stopped the inspector from entering its Natanz nuclear site out of suspicion she was carrying “suspicious material”.   Iran is believed to have begun secretly constructing the Fordow facility in the early 2000s but it was only known to the world when Barack Obama exposed it in 2009 and accused Iran of covertly working on a weapons programme.  The base is around 80 metres underground, making it difficult to destroy with an airstrike, and is protected by anti-aircraft batteries. Israel came close to bombing the site in 2011 but ultimately decided not to move ahead.  The network of alliances Iran has built with terror groups such as Hizbollah in Lebanon, as well a pro-Iranian Shia militias in Iraq, mean the balance of power in the Middle East is now in Iran’s favour, according to the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think tank. At a glance | Key players in Tehran Iran’s ability, moreover, to fight and win wars in the Middle East without resorting to conventional military forces has been allowed to develop because there has been no effective international response to Iran’s activities in the region. According to the IISS’s latest report, “Iran’s Networks of Influence in the Middle East” which is published on Thursday, while the US and its allies still retain military superiority over Iran in terms of conventional forces, Tehran has proved to be more effective in waging war in what it calls the “Grey Zone” of conflict. This means Iran is able to avoid risking a traditional “state-on-state” confrontations, which it would be likely to lose. Instead, by building what the report calls “networks of influence” with proxies throughout the region, Tehran has succeeded in gaining a distinct advantage over rivals in the region, such as Saudi Arabia. “Iran is fighting and winning wars ‘fought amongst the people’, not wars between states,” the report concludes.

Chine: les exchanges de cryptomonnaies peuvent demander à être réglementés 101
Source: iStock/Onfokus

À compter d’aujourd’hui, les exchanges de cryptomonnaies peuvent demander à être réglementés par la Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) de Hong Kong qui a publié un document posant le cadre pour les échanges cryptographiques.

Les nouvelles règles couvrent des aspects de la conservation des cryptos, les exigences du client, des règles anti-blanchiment et des manipulations de marché, ainsi que des questions spécifiques au secteur de la cryptomonnaie, a dit Ashley Alder, directeur général du SFC dans une conférence Fintech à Hong Kong.

"Et cela met également en évidence de nombreux nouveaux concepts auxquels nous nous habituons, tels que les portefeuilles chauds et froids, les forks, les parachutages (airdrops), etc. Nous définirons également les critères permettant aux plateformes de décider de l'inclusion d'un nouvel actif pour le trading", a-t-il ajouté.

Selon Alder, la Commission a examiné "un grand nombre d'exploitants de plateformes cryptographiques" et a conclu que "certains d'entre nous pourraient être réglementés par nous".

Toutefois, le directeur général a souligné qu'il veillerait à ce que les opérateurs de plateformes ne puissent fournir des services qu'aux investisseurs professionnels, et uniquement à ceux qui sont en mesure de démontrer qu'ils possèdent déjà une connaissance suffisante en matière d'investissement dans ce domaine.

Cette annonce est "un moment crucial pour les services financiers en Asie et indique une acceptation accrue des actifs numériques en tant que nouveau type d'instruments financiers", a déclaré à Reuters Hugh Madden, le PDG de BC Group, une société techno de trading d'actifs numériques.

Dans le même temps, Alder a également souligné que la SFC était "extrêmement préoccupée" par les plateformes offrant des contrats à terme sur actifs virtuels au public, en particulier des contrats à fort effet de levier.

"Nous allons donc publier aujourd'hui un deuxième document qui alerte les investisseurs sur ces risques. Elle indique également que ceux qui proposent des contrats à terme sur des actifs virtuels à des fins de transaction pourraient bien mener une activité illégale", a déclaré M. Alder.

Plus tôt dans la journée, il a été annoncé que le planificateur d’état de la Chine, la Commission nationale du développement et de la réforme, avait retiré le secteur du minage de Bitcoin (BTC) de la liste des industries susceptibles d’être éliminées.

Tout cela s’inscrit dans la foulée de la récente demande du président chinois Xi Jinping d’accélérer le développement de la technologie blockchain en raison de son importance "dans le nouveau cycle d’innovation technologique et de transformation industrielle" de la Chine.

ONU : la Corée du Nord formerait de jeunes hackers aux attaques cryptos

 Cache   

Corée du Nord hackers

Des rapports de l’ONU indiquent que la Corée du Nord aurait recruté des jeunes pour devenir hackers en cryptos, comme le rapporte le média Chosun repris par Cryptonews. Ce n’est pas la première accusation de ce type à l’encontre du pays, qui semble déterminé à utiliser les crypto-actifs afin de contourner les sanctions et financer son développement.

Des cryptos dans les biberons des hackers nord-coréens

L’information vient de plusieurs rapports du Comité des sanctions contre la République populaire démocratique de Corée (RPDC) à l’ONU, qui ont été analysés par le membre du Parlement sud-coréen Cho Won-Jin. Selon ces derniers, le gouvernement nord-coréen identifie des enfants ayant montré un talent particulier pour l’informatique, et les sélectionne afin qu’ils deviennent des « cyber-agents ». Ils forment alors une unité spéciale, dont le but est d’attaquer des sites et espaces de stockages dédiés aux crypto-actifs.

La Corée du Nord conduirait ces raids afin de dérober des fonds et utiliserait principalement des techniques de « spearfishing » (hameçonnage ciblé), depuis au moins 2016. Il semblerait que les cibles favorites de cette unité spéciale soient les exchanges de cryptos sud-coréens, à cause de leur sécurité qui peut laisser à désirer.

Dissimuler les traces d’effraction

Si cette histoire paraît déjà rocambolesque, elle ne s’arrête cependant pas là. Toujours selon le média Chosun, il semblerait que la Corée du Nord ait également établi une entreprise blockchain à Hong Kong, qui servirait uniquement de façade afin de procéder au blanchiment des fonds ainsi dérobés. L’entreprise, Marine China, n’aurait qu’un seul investisseur.

Les cryptodevises volées seraient déplacées entre un grand nombre d’adresses, situées dans plusieurs pays différents, afin de couvrir les traces et éviter d’attirer l’attention de potentiels enquêteurs. Ce sont plus de 5 000 transactions qui auraient ainsi été effectuées. Cela permettrait au pays de continuer à se financer, tout en évitant les sanctions financières américaines qui pèsent actuellement sur son économie.

Ce rapport coïncide en tout cas avec d’autres informations qui avaient déjà été révélées il y a quelques mois. On apprenait ainsi en août que le pays aurait attaqué des exchanges afin de financer son programme d’armement. Ce sont deux milliards de dollars qui auraient ainsi été dérobés. L’information a bien sûr été niée par la RPDC, un mois plus tard. Ce qui est sûr, c’est que le pays s’intéresse fortement aux monnaies virtuelles. En septembre, on apprenait ainsi que l’État travaillait à sa propre cryptodevise, qui serait similaire au Bitcoin.

L’ONU pense que la Corée du Nord forme les jeunes les plus talentueux en informatique à devenir de véritables pirates de cryptomonnaies et pense que Pyongyang utilise une fausse blockchain de Hong Kong comme plateforme de blanchiment d’argent.

Selon le média Chosun, le député sud-coréen et membre de la commission parlementaire Cho Won-jin, a analysé les récents rapports du Comité du Conseil de sécurité sur la Corée du Nord.

Selon les données du rapport, les Nations unies ont découvert qu'une unité spéciale du gouvernement nord-coréen sélectionne et entretient d'éventuels "agents cybernétiques", identifiant des talents informatiques incroyables lorsqu'ils sont encore enfants et les entraînant dans le but exprès de pirater des cryptomonnaies.

En août, l’ONU a affirmé que Pyongyang avait perquisitionné environ 2 milliards USD de cryptomonnaies et d’autres fonds dans le cadre d’une campagne en cours pour alimenter ses programmes d’armement.

Selon le média, le rapport du comité de l'ONU contient également des détails sur la manière dont Pyongyang a créé une société blockchain à Hong Kong afin d'éviter les sanctions américaines.

La société, Marine China, aurait un investisseur unique, Julian Kim, qui porte également le pseudonyme de Tony Walker. Cette personne semble avoir eu accès à des fonds d'institutions financières basées à Singapour.

L'ONU pense que Pyongyang tente de couvrir ses traces après avoir effectué des rafles de cryptomonnaie, effectué "au moins 5 000 transactions individuelles" et transféré des fonds entre plusieurs adresses dans plusieurs pays afin de dissuader les enquêteurs.

Les Nations unies déclarent que les pirates informatiques de Pyongyang privilégient le hameçonnage comme moyen d’attaque, affirmant que l’État voyou a connu le succès avec cette stratégie dans le passé, prenant le contrôle des ordinateurs bancaires au Bangladesh en 2016.

L’année dernière, un expert a dit à Cryptonews.com que les échanges cryptographiques sud-coréens, plus petits, constituaient une autre cible privilégiée pour les pirates informatiques du Nord. L’expert a déclaré que les pirates informatiques considéraient ces plateformes comme des “solutions faciles à mettre en œuvre” en raison de leur niveau de sécurité souvent faible.

Ex-Twitter Employees Charged in Saudi Government Spy Plot

 Cache   

Two former Twitter employees and a Saudi national were charged by the U.S. with helping the Saudi government spy on dissidents who used the social network.

“Saudi agents mined Twitter’s internal systems for personal information about known Saudi critics and thousands of other Twitter users,” U.S. Attorney David Anderson in San Francisco said Wednesday in a statement announcing the criminal complaint.

Twitter said it’s committed to protecting those who use its service and applauded the Justice Department’s actions.

The two former Twitter employees are Ali Alzabarah, 35, of Saudi Arabia, and Ahmad Abouammo, 41, of Seattle. According to the complaint, they were recruited by a third Saudi, Ahmed Almutairi, 30, to “use their employee credentials to gain access without authorization to certain nonpublic information about the individuals behind certain Twitter accounts.”

All three are charged with acting as illegal agents of a foreign government. In addition, Abouammo is charged with destroying, altering, or falsifying records in a federal investigation.

“We recognize the lengths bad actors will go to try and undermine our service,” Twitter said in a statement. “Our company limits access to sensitive account information to a limited group of trained and vetted employees. We understand the incredible risks faced by many who use Twitter to share their perspectives with the world and to hold those in power accountable. We have tools in place to protect their privacy and their ability to do their vital work.”

Nikon Z 50, la fotocamera mirroless con il corpo da relex

 Cache   
Nikon Z 50 2

Nikon ha deciso di chiamare Z 50 la prima fotocamera mirrorless in formato DX. Dotata di un sensore CMOS in formato DX da 20,9 MP, la Z 50 offre i vantaggi ottici del sistema mirrorless di Nikon in un corpo macchina in formato DX compatto e resistente.

Le funzioni ereditate dalle fotocamere Nikon Z 7 e Z 6 includono l’innesto a baionetta Z-Mount e il rapido sistema autofocus AF ibrido. Inoltre, la Z 50 è caratterizzata da un nitido mirino elettronico, uno schermo touchscreen inclinabile e un’impugnatura profonda che volta a renderla confortevole nell’impiego.

Il sistema intelligente Eye-Detection AF a 209 punti rende la Z 50 ideale nella realizzazione dei ritratti mentre la velocità di scatto continua fino a 11 fps (con AF/AE) permette di immortalare in modo efficace le scene più dinamiche. La Z 50 supporta l’adattatore baionetta Nikon FTZ che consente di utilizzare gli obiettivi reflex NIKKOR con innesto a baionetta F-Mount in abbinamento alla fotocamera.

Dell’elaborazione delle immagini si occupa il processore Expeed 6, cui si deve la possibilità di scattare fino a 11 fps con autofocus AF ed esposizione automatica AE e anche riprendere di filmati 4K/UHD a 25/30p e riprendere sequenza al rallentatore in Full HD senza limitazioni del fattore di ritaglio “crop”. Inoltre, permette sequenze accelerate in 4K/UHD direttamente on-camera. La sensibilità ISO equivalente va da 100 a 51.200 e l’autofocus in condizioni di scarsa illuminazione arriva fino a -4 EV.

La nuova fotocamera usa un mirino elettronico da 2,36 milioni di punti che è in grado di visualizzare un’immagine naturale in modo simile a un mirino ottico reflex. In alternativa, le immagini possono essere visualizzate come appariranno con le impostazioni applicate.

Il monitor LCD ha risoluzione di 1,04 milioni di punti con comandi touch in stile smartphone; può essere inclinato verso l’alto o verso il basso per una maggiore flessibilità durante la ripresa di video o autoritratti in selfie.

In dotazione troviamo anche le connessioni Wi-Fi e Bluetooth, che, assieme all’app Nikon SnapBridge agevolano l’invio di foto e filmati a qualsiasi dispositivo per la condivisione o l’archiviazione.

I più creativi apprezzeranno la presenza di 20 effetti incorporati per foto e video. L’intensità può essere regolata durante la visualizzazione dell’anteprima dell’effetto.

Anche due zoom

Assieme alla fotocamera sono stati presentati anche due obiettivi zoom Nikkor Z, entrambi in formato DX e ottimizzati per acquisire perfettamente tutta la luce della scena. Si tratta dei modelli DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR1 e NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR.

La messa a fuoco di questi zoom è rapida, discreta e costante, rendendoli adatti anche per i video oltre che per le fotografie. L’obiettivo zoom NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, ultra-portatile e sottile, consente di immortalare dalle immagini grandangolari sino ai ritratti, mentre il compatto teleobiettivo zoom NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR, invece, è un obiettivo che consente di passare dall’inquadratura di ritratti all’acquisizione di azioni a distanza con precisione uniforme e stabile.

Nikon Z 50La Nikon Z 50 sarà in vendita ai seguenti prezzi di listino:

  • Z 50 + Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm VR + SD 64GB 667x Pro Lexar: 1.119 euro

L’intelligenza artificiale non sostituirà il security operation center

 Cache   
security operation center

Quanti hanno pensato al fatto che l’intelligenza artificiale a breve rimpiazzerà il security operation center? Dopotutto, è stato calcolato quanto costa gestire un SOC 24/7/365, e che cosa comporta da un punto di vista economico soddisfare le richieste di un CISO che chiede più risorse, in termini di persone, tecnologia e fondi, per contrastare nuove minacce cyber.

Sergej Epp, chief security officer della Central European region di Palo Alto Networks invece consiglia di non affidarsi esclusivamente alla tecnologia per proteggere l’organizzazione, ma bisogna valutate il modo in cui l’intelligenza artificiale può complementare il security operation center.

Sergej Epp, chief security officer della Central European Region di Palo Alto Networks

Per aiutarci a capire perché l’intelligenza artificiale non sostituirà mai il security operation center, Epp ci fa un esempio proveniente dal mondo degli scacchi.

Lezione di sicurezza dagli scacchi

Nel 1997, ricorda Epp, il grande maestro di scacchi Garry Kasparov giocò e perse contro Deep Blue, il sistema di intelligenza artificiale di Ibm. Quello che forse non si sa è che Kasparov stava vincendo quando Deep Blue fece quella che venne considerata una mossa inusuale, confondendo Kasparov al punto che perse il ritmo e, in ultima analisi, la partita.

La mossa di Deep Blue, tuttavia, non aveva l’obiettivo di far cadere in fallo il maestro: si scoprì successivamente che Deep Blue aveva un baco e fece una mossa casuale, invece che ragionata con calma.

Anche se la vittoria di Deep Blue venne considerata una pietra miliare nell’evoluzione dell’intelligenza artificiale, il “bug” che influì sul risultato della partita dovrebbe insegnarci che non si punta tutto su un solo cavallo. In effetti a volte bisogna pensare e agire fuori dagli schemi e questo è vero soprattutto quando si tratta di cybersecurity.

Come la cybersecurity trae vantaggio dall’intelligenza artificiale

Intelligenza artificiale e machine learning hanno dimostrato la capacità di automatizzare molte attività prima gestite dal security operation center o da tool di generazioni precedenti. E anche se utile per automatizzare molti processi decisionali legati alla sicurezza cyber non potrà mai sostituire l’intelligenza umana in un’area in continua evoluzione come il threat identification and management.

Poiché spesso non si conoscono le minacce e quale il loro impatto prima che si verifichi, risulta impossibile configurare una macchina affinché riconosca schemi del tutto sconosciuti.

Si cercano costantemente modi per contrastare le minacce avvalendosi delle enormi quantità di dati pubblici provenienti dai servizi di threat intelligence e altre metodologie di sorveglianza.

Analizzare gli incidenti recenti, partecipare a gruppi di discussione, configurare honeypot o ideare esercizi red-team aiuta e può costituire la base per mettere a punto una difesa AI-driven. Ma formare le macchine con i dati è estremamente difficile.

Bisogna insegnare alle macchine

Quello che le macchine sanno fare veramente bene è identificare gli schemi in base a un input e imparare dagli umani. Possiamo insegnare loro a riconoscere una sedia mostrandone miliardi di forme, colori e misure diverse. Ma cosa succede al machine learning quando qualcuno sviluppa una forma di sedia totalmente nuova?

In quei casi il cervello umano collega il formato mai visto con la funzionalità, mentre una macchina non riuscirà a capire che ci si può sedere a meno che non abbia l’aspetto di una sedia.

Abbiamo ancora bisogno che i nostri analisti security operation center insegnino agli algoritmi a riconoscerla come sedia – così come insegnerebbero al sistema AI a riconoscere un nuovo malware come minaccia.

Quindi, anche se intelligenza artificiale e machine learning non sostituiranno il security operation center, si tratta di tecnologie che svolgeranno un ruolo sempre più importante nei processi di automazione delle decisioni.

L’organizzazione è pronta all’intelligenza artificiale?

Prima di poter avvalersi dell’intelligenza artificiale, le imprese spesso dimenticano di dover trasformare le tecnologie di cybersecurity e il security operation center stesso.

Il successo dell’intelligenza artificiale sta nel livello di automazione e integrazione dei controlli di sicurezza. Le soluzioni atte a bloccare il traffico malevolo, mettere in quarantena una macchina, risolvere un problema o applicare una patch devono essere implementate in anticipo, il vantaggio di un rapido processo decisionale da parte dell’intelligenza artificiale è inutile se non può agire in modo immediato.

L’intelligenza artificiale arricchirà il ruolo degli analisti del security operation center consentendo loro di diventare data scientist e security architect, ruoli in cui si dedicheranno a ri-architettare i processi operativi, garantendo che vengano raccolti dati giusti e di qualità e identificando nuove tecniche creative per individuare problemi specifici di mercati, aziende e funzioni.

È importante quindi capire che l’intelligenza artificiale ridurrà i rischi, ma trasformerà anche il personale del security operation center.

The Return of the Premium Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's Lung Hin

 Cache   
It's back, and it's roasting from November all the way to February next year...


Lung Hin at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila announces the return of the premium Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose starting November 2, 2019 to February 3, 2020 covering all the seasonal celebrations this year and the next. It's a culinary treat you've come to expect from a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star property (for more on my experience at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's rating as one of the world's finest five-star properties by the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide, see my post Exceptional Service That Exceeds Expectations: A Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Staycation at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila). Time to welcome the return of a classic...at Lung Hin.

Lung Hin, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's award-winning Chinese restaurant, earned both local and international recognition from Philippine Tatler and the China Hotel Industry Golden Horse Awards as one of the best Chinese restaurants outside China. And it just gets better with the return of the premium Roasted Goose...


Chef Ken Leung served a lavish menu to showcase the premium roast goose, from dim sum to soup, mains and dessert. The special menu is good for five to ten, perfect for families and special gatherings this holiday season (see contact details below for inquiries on prices and rates). For Chef Ken, the new menu is part of Lung Hin's culinary tradition of authenticity using the finest ingredients (for more on Chef Ken Leung and the award-winning Lung Hin, see my earlier posts, Meet Chef Ken of Marco Polo's Award-Winning Lung Hin... on my first time to meet Chef Ken, Cantonese, Anew: Celebrate The New Year with New Dishes and Exquisite Abalone at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's Lung Hin and 19 with 25: Enjoy 19 Authentic Dim Sum Dishes and More with 25% Discount at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's Lung Hin). Our exclusive preview at Lung Hin began with the refreshing signature Iced Tea...


The starters were then served, a duo of tasty steamed and fried dim sum masterfully prepared by Chef Ken and his team. The intricate Steamed Seafood Dumplings with Caviar offered delicate notes...


...with fresh and clean flavors in every bite. The caviar added distinct and sharp notes to complement the subtle and nuanced flavors of the delicate dim sum. In contrast, Chef Ken presented texture and rich flavors with his next dim sum dish...


...with the Deep-Fried Shrimp Dumplings with Mayonnaise. Fried to a perfect crispness, the briny sweetness of the succulent shrimps come through mellowed by the creamy finish of the mayonnaise.


Just like the previous dim sum dish, the flavors are delicately balanced, draping the palate with an elegant richness.


It's dim sum elevated to a whole new level, modern and innovative yet maintaining traditional flavors. The use of the freshest seafood and ingredients is evident right from the first bite with its subtle sweetness.  


Then, Chef Ken presented the highlight of the special preview with the premium roasted goose. Roasted to a crisp and juicy finish, the bright golden hues of the Hong Kong classic brings authentic and traditional Cantonese flavors to Lung Hin...


...with a recipe perfected by generations of Guangdong chefs. Not many establishments offer authentic roasted goose and it's a unique and special treat just in time for the coming holidays. The tedious roasting, airing and drying process brings both textural contrast and indulgent notes with its crispy skin over a thin layer of flavorful fat and tender, juicy meat with none of the gamey flavors. 


Chef Ken then served his succulent and crisp Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose, sliced and carved with its own flavorful juices and a sweet plum sauce. Drawing inspiration from traditional recipes from southern China's Guangdong province that's become a Hong Kong classic, Chef Ken's version faithfully recreates all these comforting flavors with his Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose at Lung Hin.


It's hard to accurately describe the flavors of roasted goose, but there is that distinctive depth of flavor and elegant smooth finish that sets it apart from the usual roast duck. The common roast duck has sharper, bolder flavors while the roasted goose has milder and more nuanced notes. It's a dish perfected by age-old recipes and tradition that's become a Hong Kong classic, and you can experience it at Lung Hin.  


One savory bite leads to another allowing diners to appreciate the lengthy process and long hours in creating the Hong Kong classic. This time, Lung Hin will be roasting this iconic Hong Kong specialty from November all the way to February 3 next year. Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year, just pick your holiday and Lung Hin's premium Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose will be the highlight of your holiday feast.


Chef Ken then served his other dishes from the special menu, including the Poached Garoupa with Wild Mushrooms in Fish Stock with its fresh and clean flavors...



...and the Steamed Stuffed Vegetarian Treasure in Inari Bag, a refreshing pouch filled with vegetables that's both hearty and flavorful. 


But it's the Steamed Japanese Scallops with Minced Garlic in XO Sauce that will have you going for seconds...


...with the briny sweetness from the plump and succulent scallops complemented by the nutty hints of garlic and perfectly finished by the XO sauce. Firm to the bite yet melts in your mouth, these scallops release a burst of vibrant flavors that's both clean and indulgently rich.

One more scallop and steamed vegetarian dumpling followed by a comforting bowl of Braised Fish Lips with Dried Scallops (R) soothes both the palate and body with its briny freshness from the fish and scallops and deep nutty undertones from the mushrooms.


The Signature Lung Hin Fried Rice with Seafood and Scallops rounds out our sumptuous lunch at Lung Hin...


...followed by the decadent Chilled Mango Sago with Coconut Milk to end another memorable dining experience at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. It's a festive feast that's perfect for the coming holidays shared with family and friends. Celebrate the season with tradition and authenticity at Lung Hin with the premium Hong Kong Golden Roasted Goose, and welcome the return of a Hong Kong classic...

Lung Hin is located at the 44th Floor of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, Meralco Avenue and Sapphire Street, Ortigas Centre, Pasig City, Metro Manila or call (632) 720-7777 for inquiries and reservations.

Literally translated to "let's eat," Tabemashou's wide selection of Japanese favorites include grilled skewers like Roasted Beef & Spring Onion Roll (P 110), Saikoro (P 195) or juicy Wagyu beef cubes, Chicken Thigh (P 55), Chicken & Leeks (P 65), Pork Enoki (P 105) and Chicken Wings (P 125).  


Not to be missed is Tabemashou's crisp Chicken Skin (P 35) seasoned with salt...


...and Chicken Liver (P 50) draped in a sweet tare glaze.


No Japanese feast is complete without tempura, and Tabemashou's Ebi Tempura (P 185-3 pcs/P 295-5 pcs) and Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura (P 225) are spot on with that rich and briny notes from the succulent prawns and the lightly crisp batter.  


Tabemashou also offers an array of fresh, hand rolled sushi including Tuna Nigiri (P 125-2 pcs), Salmon Nigiri (P 145-2 pcs), California Maki (P 195) and Salmon Spicy Maki (P 275). But it's the aburi that will have you coming back for seconds...


...like the Salmon Tako Maki Aburi (P 175), Shrimp Aburi (P 225) and Salmon Aburi (P 245). Other popular Japanese offerings include the Chicken Karaage (P 195) served with rice, the Pepper Beef Rice in Stone Pot (P 255) and Salmon Stone Pot (P 255).


Tabemashou's comforting ramen also hits the spot. Choose from Chasu Tonkotsu Ramen (P 255) or the Spicy Miso Ramen (P 275) for that kick of soothing heat.


 It's a comprehensive menu featuring all your Japanese favorites, but there's more at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood...

At Golden Treasures, diners can indulge in traditional Chinese dishes like dim sum and noodles. The open kitchen allows diners a sneak peek on their orders, prepared a la minute to ensure freshness. Straight from the steamers, your first batch of dim sum is ready...


From the classic Steamed Siumai (P 188)...


...to the delicate Steamed Hakaw (P 188), Golden Treasures' dim sum offerings deliver fresh and clean flavors. 


Each bite of the steamed hakaw begins with a fresh snap laying a briny richness to the palate. Other dim sum items include Chicken Feet (P 168), Eggyolk Bun (P 148), Steamed Pork Buns (P 148) and Steamed Pork Dumplings (P 128). 


One tasty surprise at Golden Treasures is the Birthday Noodles (P 198), a hearty dish with seafood, pork, chicken and vegetables. Richly seasoned, you don't have to add anything else. This one's ready to go once it's served. Other savory dishes at Golden Treasures include the Shanghai Mien Noodles (P 228), Sauteed Beef & Scallions (P 248), Chopsuey (P 168), Yang Chow Fried Rice (P 168) and Beef Broccoli (P 248). 

True to its concept of world-class cuisine under one roof, My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood offers even more comforting flavors at Roast'D. Chinese style roasts served with rice becomes a satisfying and complete meal at Roast'D, simply choose from roast duck, pork or chicken.


Diners can see the barbecued meats displayed at the counter to complete that Chinatown vibe. The Roast Chicken with Rice (P 248) at Roast'D not only delivers on flavor, it's excellent value too. Tender and juicy with a subtle sweet and smoky glaze, the Roast Chicken with Rice is the perfect one-dish meal anytime of day. Other offerings at Roast'D include the Crispy Pork with Rice (P 298), Roast Asado Pork with Rice (P 288) and Roast Duck with Rice (P 298). 

From Asia, go on a culinary journey to Italy with Roma at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood. The pasta dishes, each one prepared with fresh pasta and sauces made in-house, are the key attractions at Roma. And the Truffle Pasta (P 355) with fresh conchiglie is on my list of personal favorites.   


The distinct texture of handmade pasta, firm yet soft to the bite, makes every pasta dish at Roma special. The Truffle Pasta is an indulgent dish with the bold, earthy and nutty notes of truffles rounding out each bite. Other pasta dishes at Roma include the Pesto Pasta (P 195), Spicy Diavola (P 255), Puttanesca (P 225), Carbonara (P 195) and Shrimp Alfredo (P 255). Then, there's Roma's hearty soups, salads and Herb Chicken to complete your Italian feast at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood.


I know I'll be back for the Truffle Pasta with fresh conchiglie at Roma.

Burgers and wings? Chix is your next stop at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood. Chef Josh simplifies the burger going back to basics using handcrafted premium all-beef patties, garden-fresh veggies and soft and fluffy buns for the Classic Burger (P 195) and Cheese Burger (P 215) paired with a side of crisp Fries (P 85).


The patty is perfectly grilled, remaining juicy delivering a savory richness after each bite while its delicately charred edges add that subtle crispness. The fresh onions, tomatoes and lettuce add to the overall crisp texture of the burger with their distinct flavors coming together capped by the cheese and the soft bun just as a proper burger should. No frills, all deliciousness. This Cheeseburger is way up there on my list of favorites at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood.


Serving all-American comfort food, Chix is your go-to spot for juicy and mouth-watering burgers. Then, there's the signature wings at Chix. With ten flavors to choose from, you'll have your crisp and juicy wing fix at Chix from that first bite all the way to the last piece. Choose from Asian BBQ Glaze, Barbecue, Italian Parmesan, Chili Barbecue, Sour Cream, Sriracha, Japanese Sesame, Sweet Chipotle, Buffalo Wing and Honey Garlic. Plus, you can have a meaty boneless option too. 


Go for the 6 Pcs (P 195-1 Flavor), 12 Pcs (P 390-2 Flavors) and 18 Pcs (P 575-3 Flavors). I go for the 12 Pcs option with Honey Garlic...


...and Sour Cream Wings. The sharp and mildly tart notes of the sour cream and the sweet nutty flavors of the honey garlic glaze complement the juicy and crisp chicken without overpowering it. Just perfect.

The popularity of Taiwanese milk teas are also included in the mix at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood. WICKD is the latest entry in the milk tea market, straight from Taiwan. Using the finest black and green tea leaves for that soothing brew, you'll also find equally refreshing coffee variants at WICKD. 


WICKD's absolutely wicked selection of milk teas include Pearl Milk Tea, Taro, Wintermelon, Black Sugar, Oreo Cheese Cream, Strawberry Cheesecake and the Ulteamate, a creamy concoction flavored with fresh tea leaves and topped with chewy tapioca pearls, grass jelly and indulgent pudding.  


And here's my top pick at WICKD, the Choco Hazelnut Coffee (P 130/P 155). The robust yet soothing and deep notes of coffee with the indulgent hints of chocolate and hazelnuts combine for a refreshing beverage to complete your My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood dining experience. Other coffee variants include the Caramel Coffee (P 120/P 140), Classic (P 120/P 140) and rich and creamy Cheese Cream (P 130/P 155) for a different and unique caffeine fix.


If you're craving for a comforting hot pot, Seoul Hotpot is your spot, serving Chuck Eye and Angus Beef Sirloin Hotpots with a variety of vegetables. But after hitting seven of eight specialty counters at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood, my belly just gave up before I could try the signature hotpots at Seoul Hotpot. But that's more than enough reason for a second visit. Soon.


At My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood, it really is #eatsforeveryone. Each kitchen at My South Hall by Chef Josh Boutwood offers comfortingly familiar flavors perfectly executed in the style and quality we can expect from Chef Josh Boutwood and The Bistro Group.

SinglePoint (OTCQB: $SING): Direct Solar Signs MOU with SchollyME an International Sports Recruiting App Linked to High Schools Across the Nation



PHOENIX - November 4, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Direct Solar of America, a subsidiary of SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB:SING) is pleased to announce it has signed a MOU with SchollyME. Direct Solar and SchollyME will collaborate on marketing Direct Solar through the schools that SchollyME is currently working with. The collaboration will put Direct Solar into the high school programs as a partner with SchollyME. This marketing strategy has already seen major success in driving new business for both companies.


SchollyME is based in California and is the fastest growing sports recruiting app for all 32 NCAA sports. SchollyME is a social media network, sports recruiting application for high school students to showcase their talents. The platform is the first social media network to be adopted in China. Learn more at SchollyME Sports Recruiting App Lands Billion Dollar Partnership in China From the release – "Kenneth Chang of the CECC and Ascent Sports is requiring all Esports gamers and athletes to pay an annual subscription fee to the use of SchollyME. The deal is estimated to be worth $1.4 billion within 24 months, thus making SchollyME the largest recruiting app in the country."

"We have seen major success in working with local high schools. We are currently working with 47 schools throughout Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Austin and are seeing amazing returns. We had our largest sales day to date Thursday closing seven deals for approximately $250,000. This partnership will give us access to high schools across the nation," states Pablo Diaz Founder, CEO Direct Solar.

This partnership will assist schools and their athletic programs through giving back a percentage of sales to help support and fund the local high school programs.

"We wanted to partner with the best solar company that can service all the schools we are currently involved with. SchollyME felt that we were more than just athletes. Our athletic community should care about the environment and give our younger generation a chance at a much longer life. Direct Solar and SchollyME is just a great partnership. We are both interested in the kid's futures!" states Mel Nunnery Founder of SchollyME.

Direct Solar and SchollyME are currently working to define which markets to launch and in what capacity to do so. Supporting the local communities and high schools' programs will be the driver for this successful partnership. Working with the school to establish a presence for education on solar and renewable energy and what it means for future generations of kids' is elemental in building longevity for both companies.

Direct Solar America via its Direct Solar Capital Division currently finances commercial solar projects for multiple private equity funds throughout North America. With the SchollyME and Direct Solar America partnership we will be collectively raising capital to continue funding projects throughout North America.

The solar market has been growing at its fastest pace in recent history. According to Solar Energy Industries Association, "The U.S. solar industry now has the largest pipeline of utility-scale solar projects in history, signaling promising future prospects for solar energy development." And with new legislation being presented the American Energy Opportunity Act which aims to make the process easier to obtain solar we expect to see continued growth in the sector.

Furthering the growth in the solar market, California has Incorporated solar into state codes & standards, including implementation of the Building Energy Efficiency Standards (BEES) for solar on new homes, developing BEES for commercial buildings with solar and storage, and preventing problematic siting & permitting requirements for utility-scale solar. The state continues to invest and grow the solar footprint. Which SchollyME being based in California this puts Direct Solar instantly in the largest solar market in the United States.

SchollyME has been working with thousands of students securing over 300 scholarships. The interactive app continues to develop and grow. SchollyME Inc. is an incredible sports social network which gives fans a front row seat in the lives of their favorite athletes and coaches while connecting with fans across the globe. For high school and jr. college athletes, SchollyME encourages you to market and promote yourself to college coaches across the globe. SchollyME empowers you to go from discovered to offered with one click.

Beyond just high schools there are numerous opportunities through partnering with SchollyME. Intros to international markets such as China where Pablo Diaz and Mel Nunnery recently traveled on an "invite only" trip to attend the Chinese Electronic Chamber of Commerce conference. Being one of the world's most prestigious conferences, there were many attendees that are highly interested in seeing the collaboration of Direct Solar and SchollyME succeed as there is much business to do outside of the U.S. and expanding into international markets.

Direct Solar and SchollyME determine the best-case scenario to develop and bring to market the first application to buy solar online or through a mobile device from inception to financing and closing. The future of residential solar will follow the path of other large purchases such as cars through Tesla and Carvana. Consumers are becoming comfortable making these large purchases online with the right education and trusted partner. Direct Solar of America will guide consumers through the entire process providing any assistance needed along the way through implementation of AI and customer service agents available to answer any questions. Overall the company looks to create and launch an industry changing way to purchase solar.

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.

The Willie Soon Controversy

There’s been a lot of talk about the Willie Soon Controversy. Bottom line: Soon was an author on a paper that failed to disclose his extensive funding by the petroleum industry and its friends (over a million dollars to date, I believe) as required. I don’t have time to craft a detailed expose or commentary, but I wanted to get a bunch of resources in one place. I should mention that this is not all about Willie Soon, but rather, about climate science denialists more generally, a few specific others besides Soon, about how crap gets published now and then much to the giddiness of the denialist community, and about the ethical issues plaguing Soon, which have led to, among other things, tens of thousands of people signing a petition to get him sacked from his position at Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics lab.

The Monckton-Soon-Legates-Briggs paper

It all starts with this paper:

Why models run hot: results from an irreducibly simple climate model, published in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences

The paper is by Christopher Monckton, Willie Soon, David Legates and William Briggs.

The paper has been examined by a number of scientists and others, and found wanting. Here is a selection of the critiques:

News Roundup

 

Zuckerberg, Facebook under mounting pressure over political ads

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to meet with civil rights leaders this week after his company has maintained its policy to leave up political ads containing false statements by politicians. The company has applied the policy unevenly, first allowing Donald Trump to maliciously post an ad with false information about Joe Biden; then leaving up an Elizabeth Warren ad containing false information designed to illustrate the absurdity of Facebook’s ad policy.  During a hearing, Zuckerberg also admitted to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that if she were to place a false political ad, that the company would probably leave it up. 

 

But Facebook is inexplicably removing false ads placed by Political  Action Committees. One notable example is an ad placed the Really Online Lefty League – ROLL – a Political Action Committee co-founded by Adriel Hampton – which falsely claimed that Lindsey Graham supports the New Green Deal. Hampton, an experienced marketing and political strategist, responded by filing to run for governor of California. Then gubernatorial candidate Hampton posted a false political ad and Facebook took it down, saying his campaign wasn’t legit—that it was just a ploy to place a false ad to see what Facebook would do. Even though Hampton says he fully expects to win the governorship, Facebook hasn’t reinstated the ad.

 

It’s a mess.

 

Top officials from the NAACP, National Urban League, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights are scheduled to meet with Zuckerberg this week to express their concerns with Facebook’s political ad policy, which the company now says has been extended to the UK.

 

Facebook sued for age, gender bias in financial services ads

 

A plaintiff in San Francisco filed a potential class action federal lawsuit last week claiming that Facebook discriminates against users based on age and gender in determining who can see financial services ads.  The lawsuit comes 7-months after Facebook agreed to tailor its platform to avoid discrimination on the basis of age, gender and zip code for job, credit, and housing ads.

 

US launches Tik Tok investigation

 

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has launched a national security investigation into Tik Tok, which is owned by the Chinese firm Bytedance. A bipartisan cohort of lawmakers including Democrat Chuck Schumer, Republican Marco Rubio, and Tennessee Democratic Congressman Bart Gordon have all expressed concern about how the Chinese government uses TikTok’s data. TikTok’s growth has been outpacing the growth of incumbent social media companies in the U.S.

 

 

Snowden: Facebook as untrustworthy as the NSA

 

Whistleblower Edward Snowden, who is exiled in Russia for blowing the lid off the National Security Agency’s mass data collection practices six years ago, told ReCode’s Kara Swisher last week that Facebook is as untrustworthy as the NSA when it comes to privacy. But he didn’t limit his remarks to Facebook. He said that all tech companies are looking to exploit our personal data no matter the consequences. He also said that, on the surface, users may appear not to be concerned about how big tech companies handle their data but that, in reality, users are very concerned but feel powerless.

Five people were shot and killed at an Airbnb rental Northern California during a Halloween party on Thursday.

A witness reported to Buzzfeed that the shooting occurred with apparently no provocation. Airbnb has banned the renter from the platform.

 

China launches 5G network

 

Chinese officials announced last week that it would roll out 5G to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou 2 months ahead of schedule. The country also announced plans to roll out 5G to over 50 cities by the end of this year. While U.S. telecom companies have begun their 5G roll-out, it’s largely been rolled out on higher frequency bands than the 5G service that’s being rolled out in China. The lower frequency bands that China’s using cover a larger surface area, while the higher frequency bands U.S. companies are using are more powerful but cover less ground.

Will gold shine again?

 Cache   

Studying the current state of the world economy following, amongst other effects, the end of the commodity cycle, there is a growing concern that the worlds’ currencies, which have since 1913 been effectively fiat based (ie no value backing such as gold), will eventually collapse. Historically currencies do this. The US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency might remain the strongest of the lot until there is the impact of deflation and hyper-inflation resulting from the quantitative easing with fiat currency.

Ultimately, it is all a result of the debt based currency systems which have been manipulated to create the biggest debt bubble in the history of money and currencies. Anyone interested in the impact this is having on world trade should look up the Baltic Dry Index records. It is a very interesting metric that measures the shipping movements between continents. It is at the lowest index level in its history.

Out of most misfortune one hopes for the glimmer of positivity. In the current economic saga is the possibility that there will be a replacement world reserve currency that would be based on a value backing, and the most obvious is gold. Silver may have its role as well.

Some protagonists of this are predicting a massive hike in the gold price. Two interesting issues are evident. China is buying large quantities of gold, and the USA banking system and Fed are doing their best to suppress the price. Gold is no longer following the commodities index and going its own way.

SA does not have any perceptible agenda on the table, let alone observable action, to get economic growth going to uplift the rate of wealth generation and make an impact on the rating agencies. Would the rise in the gold price to such an extent happen such that it provides acceptable margins above the cost of recovery in a stable manner and be an option to get our gold mines going as before so as to help a bit?

It is of concern that we are losing, and have lost, a significant number of our experienced resources including Mining Engineers who have in the past managed our gold mining industry. We see them leaving the industry: retiring, leaving the country or moving in to other careers. From our historic role as number one we are way down now, not sure where.

For one hundred years SA has effectively grown its economy based on mining and commodities. The investment into that has almost ceased. Have we learnt anything from history that should have prepared us for the end of that boom, and undertaken development of other industries?

The NDP has proven to be stillborn and the excitement created in 2012 on the need to train up skilled resources to enable us to build the SIPs has waned into a dilemma that we now have surplus skills and no projects. It appears we have no funding for them now.

Did anyone have any confidence in the budget speech and its rhetoric? I did not. If I had not known we have a serious economic recessionary environment on our hands, I could have believed it was a business-as-usual budget. Do you really believe that government will cut back on the blue label and the top of the range Mercs? Please, where is the real strategy to create growth?

          

Why engineering must always survive

 Cache   

One does not have to be a rocket scientist to gather that the world is in trouble of a type not experienced by any previous generation, but I guess that goes for most types of threats that have engulfed society since the dawn of civilization. It is unlikely that we can go back into history to look for solutions other than to believe that certain fundamentals must prevail. One of them must essentially be an application of the laws of preservation of energy where we cannot take out more than we put into a closed system. Pretty basic stuff when associated with thermodynamics and physics lessons, but seemingly quite another matter when it comes to the behavior of society.

The perverse antics of the investment banking community and those that believed in the ever growing value of assets that had no energy (value) actually added to them and the printing of dollars to bail out the losers, has left in its wake what must be no more than a painful correction to comply with the laws of energy. The dangers now posed by the dollar and the USA's debt pile are horrific. When the USA sneezes, then the rest of the world gets a bad cold. We can call this the macro threat to SA because international trade will be affected. Then we go to our local scene and try to evaluate if we can handle this pending debt tsunami only to find we have been playing some bad rule breaking games of our own. Our (new) political dispensation learnt little from the old regime and in fact seemed to find quite a bit attractive about it even if assigned different labels.

World-wide, nations have failed to invest in the appropriate level of infrastructure to keep up with the burgeoning population. It has used up service facilities, minimized maintenance, splurged on quick returns, ignored sustainability, deceived and lied to voters who seem to take a while to realise it. Locally, SA has probably come first in class for messing up education from the ground up (let's play OBE and close the teachers training colleges as well), disposed of its well developed intellectual capital (the best mining skills and artisan training in the world), replaced its ability to manage the infrastructure by providing comfortable salaried positions for its buddies (failed municipal service delivery), reducing food production (handing agricultural assets to those untrained to manage them) amongst others.

Who contributes to the adding of energy as distinct from taking it out? Politicians? Lawyers? Accountants? Social Scientists? Medics? Bureaucrats? Do these add energy or simply move it around and consume it?

If Engineers feel aggrieved at being unemployed then we can affix blame on the way society values creators. How many industries actually take training of engineering resources seriously, and how many managements and HR departments find more value in preserving the company from the liabilities of Engineers over 55 or 60 than in using them to be productive and mentor the younger Engineers? No, rather go out and find those that are employed by others. Steal from Peter to pay Paul. It's easier than training our own, because our neighbour steals them from us anyway. It is a zero sum game and when the tipping point comes, it is too late. There is then little or no critical level energy being added for the other professions to pilfer. To this is add the incompetence of the politicians who are playing expediency games. Currently, with the combination of economic policy, labour policy, employment equity policy, education policy, skills development policy, SA is reaching the point of de-industrialisation and has slipped to a dismal low ranking in the world's mining stakes.

China's faith in its ability to mould markets may derive from the fact that its leaders are mostly Engineers, trained to build from a plan. Eight of nine top party officials come from engineering backgrounds, and the practicality of their profession may help explain why they didn't buy into risky (and Western) financial innovation. These ruling Engineers preside over a system that is highly process oriented and obsesses with performance metrics. In all this mess, what profession can best survive internationally? If someone can identify one other than engineering, then please do.


          

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.

Little Stars: Concubines and Literati Culture in Late Imperial China

 Cache   

This dissertation studies the representation and self-presentation of concubines in literati households in late imperial China, with a focus on their interrelations with the cultural and intellectual trends during that period, such as the rise of the talented women’s culture, the identity crises of male literati, and the transformations of marital modes and gender norms. By offering contextualized analyses of a number of concubines’ biographies, anecdotes, and tales authored by men of letters, I explore how the male construction of the concubine’s image fitted into male literati’s self-identification and communal building projects. I also study how the cultural tradition of the scholar-concubine romance in previous times came to affect late-imperial scholars’ contemplation of their relationships with their concubines, and how literati writings on concubines in the early Qing were received and adapted by scholars of later generations as a means to connect with their literati-predecessors and consolidate a sense of community. By gender and social status, concubines were double-marginalized and have commonly been regarded as a group deprived of agency and subjectivity in modern times. My study argues against this stereotypical notion. Although concubines’ life experiences and mentalities were largely influenced by the (male) ideologies and sentiments of their times, and their literary vocations often dependent on the support of the male and female elites in their families, they managed to exert a degree of autonomy and, in some cases, choose the lives that they desired. My close reading of a small but illustrative selection of poems attributed to concubine authors also shows that literary talent might enable them to transcend class boundaries and receive a considerable amount of affection and respect from the elite members in their families. However, it could, sometimes, lead to their husband-masters’ feelings of insecurity and harm their marriage.


          

The Martyrs and the Poets: Women of the Zha Family and the Literary Scene in Eighteenth-century Tianjin

 Cache   

Women have often been treated as marginal figures or powerless victims in historical accounts of late imperial China, although recent decades have seen a significant rewriting of women during this period. This dissertation, which focuses on the women martyrs and women writers of the Zha family of Tianjin, contributes to this more nuanced understanding of women and gender relations in late imperial China, while also shedding new light on Tianjin’s cultural history. While both the cult of female chastity and the burgeoning of women writers have recently attracted considerable scholarly attention, the Zha family’s intriguing cases complicate the perceptions on both of these phenomena. In 1644, seven women of the Zha family died in a group suicide to protect their chastity against potential threats. However, it was not until several decades later that the family began to heavily promote these women martyrs’ posthumous reputation, culminating in a large collection of writings that was compiled in 1740, nearly a century after their martyrdom. The first half of the eighteenth century also saw the family nurture several women poets. This dissertation explores this large-scale but belated promotion of the Zha family’s women martyrs; it also looks beyond the Jiangnan area—the predominant focus of most scholarly works on late imperial women writers—into the writing activities of the Zha family women. By doing so, I seek to illustrate the struggles to both celebrate and make sense of stories of chastity martyrs, the conflicting forces at play beneath women’s literary practices in a part of China not particularly known for supporting women writers, the various roles played by women and ghosts of women in the rise of a wealthy merchant-turned-scholar family to cultural prominence in eighteenth century Tianjin, and finally, the literary scene in a fast-changing commercial city.


          

Apparition and Angst: Stories of the Strange in Late Nineteenth Century China

 Cache   

This study offers the first systematic textual analyses and translations of classical-language anomaly accounts, or the so-called “new tales of the extraordinary”, published by China’s first modern newspaper house Shenbaoguan in the latter half of the nineteenth century, during which time China underwent incessant social and political turmoil. The anomaly accounts examined both pay homage to the indigenous zhiguai, or “tales of the strange” tradition, and are clearly influenced by the classical tale masterpieces from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They contain direct mentions of the progress of the Nian and the Taiping Rebellions, vivid representations of encounters with the rebels, and sharp commentaries on the aftermaths of war. Their authors were all survivors of these bloody civil wars themselves. This project taps into this body of commercially successful yet critically neglected narratives to study how nineteenth-century literati storytellers appropriated an ancient tradition to provide unique depictions of human suffering as well as moral, political and ethnical contestations during this war-ridden chapter of China’s early modernity. This study makes five thematic inquiries. Chapter 1 investigates the use of gender tropes as socio-political critiques. Women are exalted as ethical paragons, betraying the male authors’ frustration over their collective failure to maintain order and to be victorious in battles. The growing representations of female sexuality, homosexuality, and transgenderism suggest an updated literary genre that affords more latitude for moral ambiguity. Chapter 2 unpacks the self-reflective caricatures of impoverished and disillusioned Confucian scholars: the scholar’s fall from the pedestal is hyperbolically accentuated by the elevation of the despicable members of the society, suggesting a rapidly declining faith in the shi class’s traditional moral leadership. Chapter 3 explores travel-themed stories that showcase encounters between Han Chinese subjects with frontier ethnic minorities and foreigners. In these cross-country and transnational journeys, distortions of time and space signal a new historical consciousness. Chapter 4 examines the falling out of favor of the scholarly obsession over antiques and the rise of foreign inventions as a new category for material adulation. Chapter 5 discusses how writings of the diseased body serve as a metaphor for the health of the state, and how fiction-writing itself became perceived as a therapeutic practice for the traumatized authors. This study ends with concluding comments and an appendix of fifteen translated tales. Together it argues that these late nineteenth century anomaly accounts emerged not as escapist detours from rationality, but rather a creative expression of resistance to cultural and political hegemony that was characteristic of an incipient literary modernity.


          

The Afterlife of Corpses: A Social History of Unburied Dead Bodies in Qing China (1644-1911)

 Cache   

This dissertation began with the reading of numerous Qing-dynasty records pertaining to dead bodies that remained on the ground without proper burial. These bodies were not necessarily the victims of extraordinary events such as wars or natural disasters, but the remains of ordinary people whose families failed to arrange a burial site. A wide range of historical materials recorded the presence of these bodies, such as commentaries and critiques on popular burial customs written by the imperial government and literati elites, and Qing popular tales where these bodies were described as man-hunting zombies (jiangshi 僵屍). These sources demonstrate unburied dead bodies as highly abnormal and deeply problematic, representing a dysfunctional aspect of popular death custom that proliferated in the Qing, particularly in the Jiangnan area. This dissertation observes how, throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, these bodies left on the ground provoked an empire-wide discomfort and discussion pertaining to what must be the proper way of disposing of the dead, which further gave rise to civic movements of managing death and burial in several localities in Jiangnan. The root of the problem was the rapidly changing socioeconomic structure in the Lower Yangzi area during the so-called High Qing period, when the bustling economy of an enormous empire was accompanied by the growing imbalance between population and arable land. The intensifying land competition increasingly deprived the dead of their resting place, as the security of the dead’s resting place depended on the security of the family’s claim to the burial site. As a result, by the eighteenth century, it became a common practice in Jiangnan to leave dead bodies without permanent burial until a good burial site was finally arranged. Often, these bodies ended up not being able to rest in the final resting place, left unburied permanently and lost. Largely conceived of being “homeless,” the victim of popular custom called delayed burial (tingzang 停葬), unburied corpses embodied the economic and social marginality. The Qing response to this problem was two-fold. On the one hand, the Qing government, perceiving unburied dead bodies as an epitome of the decline of family ethics, strove to ideologize this problem and enforce what it perceived as proper burial (anzang 安葬) – that is, burying the dead in earth in a timely manner. In particular, the government and local administrators attempted to standardize the neo-Confucian precept of proper burial in local society as part of their efforts to reform local popular customs. On the other hand, in several localities in Jiangnan, the ideology of proper burial developed into a civic activism of what I call public death management that spread under the leadership of local elites and philanthropists (charities and guilds). Public death management refers to the public initiative of managing death and burial that emerged in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries relying on the mobilization of public funds and expansion of death-related services, including public cemeteries and other public facilities – such as coffin homes – that helped people dispose of the body properly. Public death services offered by public charities and guild organizations both continued and revised the imperial ideology of proper burial. Just like the imperial government, civic actors in Jiangnan did acknowledge unburied dead bodies as a sign of social dysfunction and were committed to fix this problem. Meanwhile, there were certain gaps between the imperial ideological definition of proper burial and what actually occurred in local society. If the former was about bringing the dead back to the framework of ancestor worship – and therefore reviving family ethics – the latter focused more on securing and protecting collective physical spaces for the community’s dead. Thus, the civic notion of proper burial developed into a more public sense of responsibility for the welfare of the dead. In late nineteenth-century Shanghai, public cemeteries and coffin homes became an imperative part of urban life to the point that residents of Shanghai fought to protect these facilities against the encroachment of foreign imperial powers. These instances of controversies over public cemeteries, and the Chinese attempts to preserve the collective home for the dead, reveal how public death management creatively transformed the ideology of proper burial into an urban civic-oriented understanding of the relationship between the living and the dead.


          

Living in This World: A Social History of Buddhist Monks and Nuns in Nineteenth-Century Western China

 Cache   

This dissertation relies on about 600 legal cases from the Ba County Archive that survive from the first three-quarters of the nineteenth century to investigate the social life of ordinary Buddhist monks and nuns. Although they played a crucial in maintaining the survival and proper functioning of Buddhism at the local level, they have remained significantly understudied. This dissertation adopts a bottom-up approach to investigate ordinary monastics’ involvement in various socioeconomic activities. By shifting the analytical focus from elite monks to their more mundane counterparts, this study illuminates how deeply ordinary monastics were embedded in their communities. The shift also broadens our understanding of clerics as more than liturgical specialists and appreciates the multiple roles played by them in their everyday interaction with community members. Instead of ascribing to the dominant view of lower-class clerics as marginalized in late imperial China, this work argues that they played a vital role in a migrant society like Qing Ba County. In order to demonstrate the complexity of ordinary monastics’ social embeddedness and take advantage of the rich archival materials, the present work has been organized around four thematic arteries. Chapter One analyzes the continued interaction between local monastics and their natal family members in a wide array of arenas, emotionally, socially, and economically. Instead of being antithetical to each other, the monastic and family regimes worked together to achieve mutual survival and reproduction. Chapter Two enlarges on the importance of Buddhist temples in the economic sphere. It reveals how temples per se evolved into a valuable commodity frequently bought and sold among monastics, pointing to a high degree of the commodification of Buddhism in local society. It goes on to analyze two major sources of land-generated income, one deriving from the agricultural tenancy and the other the lease of coal mountains. Both categories of income not only stabilized the economic foundation of local temples, but also undergirded the powerful positions of monastics in rural areas. The following two chapters concentrate on clerical sexual activities, one of the most notorious issues of Chinese Buddhism. Instead of interpreting them as signs of the decline of monastic discipline and the corruption of the lower-class clergy, this dissertation contextualizes these activities by revealing various socioeconomic factors contributing to their occurrence and unveiling local residents’ attitudes toward sexually misbehaving monks and nuns. Chapter Three argues that three factors facilitated the occurrence of clerical sexual affairs and conditioned the local community’s tacit tolerance of such affairs, that is, the monk’s social embeddedness, the continued monastic-familial interaction, and the monk’s economic strength. Taken together, local monks and their lay community members redefined normative clerical behavior on their own terms. The last chapter turns attention to nuns’ involvement in sexual activities, and foregrounds that gender was constitutive of female monastics’ experience of sexuality. Nuns were not only more vulnerable than monks to see their sexual affairs exposed to the public, they also suffered from gender-biased anticlerical rhetoric. Nevertheless, we should notice that nuns sometimes employed the discourse of female vulnerability to enlist more lenient treatment from the magistrate. Together, this dissertation provides a vivid picture of the discordant and disjointed side of Chinese Buddhism and foregrounds the importance of sociality in the lives of ordinary monks and nuns in local society. By doing so, we gain a more balanced and nuanced understanding of Chinese Buddhism and Chinese society.


          

Role of Submicrometer Particles in Advanced Technologies of Carbon Capture

 Cache   

Oxy-combustion and post-combustion carbon capture technologies are two of the most promising strategies for carbon capture and storage (CCS), which is a commonly accepted approach to address the challenge of climate change. Pressurized oxy-combustion has been actively studied due to its great potential to enhance the power plant energy efficiency by recovering latent heat from water vapor condensation without incurring additional gas compression cost. On the other hand, amine-based CO2 scrubbers have been demonstrated to have high removal efficiency of CO2 with the possibility to recycle amine solutions, which makes the technology a promising candidate for post-combustion carbon capture. Nonetheless, the existence of submicrometer particles (diameters < 1µm) in coal combustion exhaust can pose various challenges to both advanced technologies: (1) particle control device used widely in coal-fired power plants such as electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is only designed for normal pressure operation, while submicrometer particles are needed to be removed efficiently under high pressure in a pressurized combustion system; (2) it has been shown that submicrometer particles in flue gas can induce amine loss in scrubbers by carrying the solution out due to condensation. In light of those technological challenges, this dissertation focuses on developing an understanding of how pressure affect characteristics and electrostatic precipitation of submicrometer particles in coal combustion exhaust gas through experimental and modeling approach, and investigates characteristics of submicrometer particles with and without pretreatment upstream amine-based CO2 scrubbers in real coal-fired power plants. A lab-scale pressurized ESP was constructed to investigate the effect of pressure on electrostatic collection of submicrometer particles. Current-voltage characteristics were measured using different feeding gases. Removal efficiency of the pressurized ESP was studied under various pressure conditions. A semi-empirical Deutsch-Anderson equation was developed using multivariate regression to fit the experimental removal efficiency data under high pressure with minimized error, which was thus used to design a pilot-scale pressurized ESP in a pressurized combustion system. To better understand the effect of particle properties on electrostatic precipitation, coal fly ash generated from combustion of different coal seams from China, US and India were characterized in terms of particle size distribution, charge fraction and electrostatic precipitation efficiency. How combustion pressure affects the mineralogy, morphology and chemical composition of coal fly ash was also examined for a more detailed understanding of submicrometer particles in pressurized combustion exhaust. To investigate the characteristics of submicrometer particles upstream amine-based CO2 scrubber, a field study on variation of particle number concentration and gas pollutants concentration under different operating scenarios in a utility-scale power plant was conducted. Five operating modes including soot blow of boilers, bypass of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) scrubber and derating of reheat burner (0%, 27% and 42%) were studied. Significant differences in mode diameter and number concentration were observed for both wet and dry aerosols across those operating modes. A photo-ionizer enhanced ESP was demonstrated with higher removal efficiency of submicrometer particles than a conventional ESP. Another field study was conducted at a utility-scale coal-fired power plant with a pilot-scale amine-based CO2 scrubber to investigate how different pretreatment methods affect the particle size distribution in coal combustion exhaust. Pretreatment methods including steam injection, desiccation and electrostatic precipitation were studied. Steam injection showed different effects on particle number concentration in different submicrometer size ranges. Although particles in certain small sizes showed higher concentration with ESP turned on probably due to secondary aerosol generation, ESP with an optimal voltage could remove submicrometer particles effectively, which evidenced its candidacy as a promising pretreatment technique for amine-based CO2 scrubbing.

Over the 15-week course, you’ll learn to work with iterators, generators, decorators, objects, and threads. You’ll improve your testing skills with “pytest”. You’ll communicate with other people in our cohort via our private forum. You’ll participate in my live office hours.

And best of all: Each week, you’ll get that much closer to Python fluency and mastery. This is great for your own personal satisfaction, of course, but will also help your career.

Also: The next advanced level cohort will start in March 2020.  So if you’re an experienced Python developer looking to improve your skills, this will be your last chance to do so for several months.  (A new basic-level cohort will be starting in January.)

If the price of WPE seems steep, maybe you qualify for one of my discounts — for pensioners/retirees, students, and anyone living outside of the world’s 30 richest countries. I want to help as many people as possible to improve their Python fluency, no matter where they live or where they are in life.

So join me tomorrow at Weekly Python Exercise, and start improving your Python tomorrow!

Deceptively Simple

 Cache   
Grab a table, not a bar stool, at the charming bistro, Grisette.

At first glance, Grisette doesn’t appear to be much different from the plethora of other intimate, chef-driven restaurants in Richmond, including its across-the-street neighbor, Alewife. The one-page menu features local, seasonal ingredients. Chefs work in an open kitchen, and the bar offers the usual list of craft cocktails and wine specials.
Richmonders have seen all that before. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find some details that set Grisette apart.

We got off to a rocky start, Grisette and I. Popping in for drinks one night, my date and I took seats at the bar. Either we got the only two broken seats in the place or Grisette’s bar stools have some new off-kilter and wobbly design element. Every time I rotated in my seat it threatened to slide me off.

Other than that, the dining room is charming. The cozy wood and wallpaper interior features the obligatory chalkboard for daily specials, trendy mismatched china and French-themed wall art. Warm lighting flatters every guest, and gentle music doesn’t interfere with conversation.

Bar service was leisurely. I loved the Be Easy, Viking ($9.50) with aquavit, honey, lemon and yellow chartreuse — it’s a creative cousin to the gin-based Last Word. The San Miguel Firing Squad ($10) pleased my mezcal fan.

Grisette is all-in on charcuterie and cheese, with most of the former prepared in-house. On two visits we made the most of the chalkboard list, delving into pungent cheeses like Maytag blue, Meadow Creek’s Grayson, La Gelinotte comte and bucheron.

Clearly the chefs are having fun with the charcuterie. It changes often, with tempting works in progress also listed on the chalkboard. Don’t expect to get the same delicious thing twice.

We had a pork and shiitake pâté maison that was packed with earthy fall flavors and garlic. A “tongue and cheek” pork terrine stood out for its texture: bits of Autumn Olive Farms heritage pork offset by a classic terrine’s soft gelatin. Saucisson sec and red wine basil sausages were balanced and well-seasoned, with none of the hard bits of fat sometimes found in sausages.

Cheeses and charcuterie cost $5 each for a small shareable slice, or three choices for $14. Our orders came with generous piles of two types of chewy, tangy homemade bread — I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have to request extra bread with a spread or dip.

In a very unusual twist, Grisette’s table service was faster and friendlier than at the bar. Table-side we were greeted with eye contact and smiles. Silverware was quickly replaced. Glasses remained full. Servers scanned our table frequently without interrupting conversation to ask how we were doing.

Menu items have clever names like “chicken wangs” and “salade Shenandoah.” We started with a deconstructed coq au vin ($19) — a stylish presentation in a small cast-iron dish. I wanted to like it, but it needed salt, the sauce lacked that requisite red wine richness and the chicken breast was dry.

We were more impressed by a turnip, apple and blue cheese tart ($13). The sweet-earthy flavor balance was perfection, framed by a crisp, flaky pastry shell alongside a tangy green salad. Our squash and chèvre ravioli ($18) were similarly delicious, with plump pillows of pasta tossed in brown butter with sauteed shiitakes, grated cheese and crunchy sunflower sprouts.
The fries and aioli ($4) are a tempting bar snack. Garlicky aioli is a welcome French-inspired dip, and the skinny shoestring-style fries are clearly homemade, but ours were flabby.

Grisette wins on wine creativity. The wine list and daily specials are a welcome departure from the usual suspects and invite the diner to try a rotating selection of featured wines by the glass. Not surprisingly, this leans strongly French, including selections of Vouvray, Sancerre, Chablis and several bubblies. I was happy to see both sparkling and still rosés. The discerning selection of Virginians include a Michael Shaps cabernet franc ($13/glass) and a Monticello viognier ($60/bottle).

Draft beer options also rotate seasonally, paired with the menu, while bottles offer French, German and Belgian specialties. I was delighted to see a sour from Ommegang, one of my favorite brewers.

Grisette’s bistro charm lies in its deceptively simple charcuterie and drinks. Choose a table, or a seat at the window counter, and dig in.

Ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Rene Tammisti poolt juhitud äridelegatsiooni kohtumistel Hiinas Shenzheni linnas avanesid mitmed koostöövõimalused Eesti majanduse arenguks. Eesti ettevõtjaid koondav äridelegatsioon kohtus visiidi käigus Hiina suurima sõltumatu kullerfirma SF Expressi ning tehnoloogiahiidude Tencenti ja Huawei tippjuhtkondadega. Kohtumistel jäi kõlama Hiina partnerite tõsine huvi koostöö vastu Eestiga. Huawei asepresident Edward Zhou võõrustas Eesti delegatsiooni ettevõtte peakontoris Shenzhenis, kus toimunud kohtumisel tutvustas minister võimalusi Huawei arenduskeskuste rajamiseks Eestisse, pidades eeskätt silmas nutika linna lahendusi ja asjade interneti (IoT) lahendusi. “Huawei tundis suurt huvi koostöö vastu e-riigi teenuste arendamiseks ning avaldas valmisolekut külastada Eestit tippjuhtkonna tasemel juba lähiajal,” lisas Tammist. Huawei teeb Eestis koostööd Telia, Elisa, HITSA ning Dateliga. Kohtumisel Hiina tehnoloogiahiiu Tencenti maksekeskkonna WeChat Pay Euroopa tegevuse eest vastutatava Ashley Guoga selgitati Eesti ettevõtjatele Hiina populaarseima suhtlusvõrgustiku võimalusi Eesti ettevõtjate ning eeskätt just turismisektori äri edendamiseks. “Tallink on juba alustanud ettevalmistustega WeChat Pay kasutamiseks, sest see on Hiina turistide eelistatud maksekanal välisreisidel. Kohtumisel tutvustati meile mitmeid võimalusi, kuidas riigid ja linnad on kasutanud WeChati võimalusi enda tutvustamiseks Eestit üha enam avastavatele Hiina turistidele - see on ka EASi turismistrateegia üheks uueks nurgakiviks,” märkis Tammist. WeChat Pay kasutajate arv on tänaseks päevaks ületanud miljardi inimese piiri ning uuringufirma Nielsen andmetel eelistavad 90 protsenti Hiina turistidest tasuda ka välismaal oma ostude eest kasutades Hiina päritolu mobiilseid makselahendusi. Minister Tammisti sõnul oli kohtumisel SF Expressiga jutuks suurima sõltumatu kullerfirma areng ja koostöö Eestiga läbi SF Expressi ja Omniva ühisettevõtte Post11. “Üheskoos saame andmete parema majandamisega vähendada piiriüleses kaubanduses esinevat bürokraatiat - nii saaks Eesti olla jaotuskeskuseks nii Euroopa kaupadele Hiina suunal kui ka Hiina kaupadele Euroopa suunal,” sõnas minister Tammist. SF Express käitleb aastas 1,86 miljardit pakki ning päevas pea 10 miljonit saadetist. Ettevõtte sõnul on nende rahvusvaheline äri kasvamas jõudsamalt, kui kodumaine ning Hiina tärkava keskklassi nõudmistele vastu tulles on hoogsalt kerkimas ka Hiina impordimahud. Ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Rene Tammist juhtis sel nädalal Eesti äridelegatsiooni, mis külastas Hiinas Shenzheni linnas toimunud kõrgtehnoloogiamessi China High-Tech Fair.

Eesti ettevõtjad arutasid Hiinas võimalusi koostöö suurendamiseks

 Cache   
E-kaubandusega tegelevad transpordi- ja logistikaettevõtted kohtuvad sel nädalal Hiinas partneritega, et leida võimalusi, kuidas suurendada e-kaupade transporti läbi Eesti. Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi majandusarengu asekantsleri Viljar Lubi juhitud äridelegatsiooni Hiina visiidi eesmärgiks on arutada eelmise aasta novembris Hiinaga allkirjastatud e-kaubanduse ja IKT alaste koostöölepete tegevusplaani järgmiseks poolaastaks. Delegatsiooni juhi Viljar Lubi sõnul on äärmiselt oluline, et eelmisel aastal sõlmitud lepingud ka päriselus realiseeruksid. „Meie huvi on Eesti kaudu Hiina kaubavoogude suurendamine läbi e-kaubanduse platvormide,“ ütles Lubi. „Selline tulemus eeldab head koostööd nii siseriiklikult transpordi ja logistika valdkonnaga ning maksu- ja tolliametiga kui ka rahvusvaheliselt Hiina kaubandusministeeriumiga.“ Lubi lisas, et kohtumisel Hiina kaubandusministeeriumiga arutatigi, kuidas Hiina ja Eesti e-kaubandusalast koostööd edasi arendada. „Kuna kõikide kohtumiste juures olid ka Eesti ettevõtjad, siis käsitleti ühises ringis kitsakohti, kuidas parandada Hiina kaupade teekonda Euroopa tarbijani,“ täpsustas Lubi. Lubi sõnul on Hiina huvitatud Eestiga koostöö tegemisest, sest lisaks heale asukohale, on hiinlastele avaldanud muljet kiire asjaajamine ja vähene bürokraatia. Seda tõestab ka Omniva Hiina-Eesti ühisettevõtte Post11 kogemus. Kohtuti ka Alibaba grupi globaalse äri asepresidendi Sami Farhadiga, kes tutvustas rahvusvahelise äri võimalusi. „Farhad tänas senise koostöö eest Hiina-Eesti suunal ning julgustas Eesti ettevõtteid, eriti e-kaubandust, tegema rohkem müügitööd ja pakkuma oma tooteid ja teenuseid Hiina suunal,“ märkis visiidil osalenud Omniva juhatuse esimees Joona Saluveer. Eesti suursaadik Pekingis Marten Kokk ütles, et näeb Eesti-Hiina e-kaubanduse koostöös suurt potentsiaali. „E-kaubanduse hoogustumine on ülemaailmne megatrend: seda ei iseloomusta mitte ainult e-poodide hulga ja eri teenuste kasv viimastel aastatel, vaid ka logistika ja postiteenuste mahtude kiire kasv – pakiautomaatide ja kullerteenuste aktiivsem kasutamine ning uute teenusepakkujate esilekerkimine,“ lausus Kokk. Lisaks Hiina kaubandusministeeriumiga kohtumisele arutasid Eesti ja Hiina ettevõtjad koostöövõimalusi ka ühisel ümarlaual. Kohtumisest võtsid osa Eestist Omniva, Tallinna Lennujaam, EVR Cargo, Boomerang Distribution, GTS Express, Lexit Technologies ning Hiina poolt Alibaba, JD Group, Huawei, SF Express, China International E-Commerce Co. Ltd. Visiidi raames toimuvad kohtumised ka Hiina Riikliku Arengu- ja Reformikomisjoni, CITIC Groupi ja Huaweiga. Lisaks organiseeritakse Eesti ettevõtetele kohtumised Hiina ettevõtetega ning äriseminar, kus tutvustatakse digitaalse Hiina võimalusi ja e-kaubanduse trende. Kohtumisi korraldab EAS koostöös Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi ja Eesti saatkonnaga Pekingis. Visiit on üheks jätkutegevuseks möödunud aastal sõlmitud majanduskokkulepetele. Eelmise aasta novembris allkirjastas ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Urve Palo Hiina Rahvavabariigi ministritega digitaalse siiditee ja e-kaubanduse majanduslepped eesmärgiga luua ühine e-kaubanduse koostöö kord ning ergutada ettevõtjaid rohkem koostööd tegema.

על רקע ניסיון הפיקוח: קרן סינית נוספת מעוניינת לפעול בישראל

 Cache   

ככל הנראה עקב לחץ אמריקני, אישר לאחרונה הקבינט הביטחוני הקמת גוף פיקוח על השקעות זרות בישראל. עם זאת, נראה כי החברות הסיניות ממשיכות להתעניין, והפעם מדובר בחברה ותיקה שהשקיעה בעבר בלינקדין ושיאומי

 

אילוסטרציה: Bigstock

קרן סינית בשם Sunvalley-capital החלה לגשש אודות פעילות בישראל, כך לפי מקורות של ישראל דיפנס. מדובר בקרן ותיקה יחסית שהשקיעה בעבר בחברות כמו לינקאדין, זום, שיאומי, AIRBNB ועוד.

הקרן ממוקדת בטכנולוגיות כמו הגנה בסייבר, בינה מלאכותית, מציאות וירטואלית ו-IOT. התחומים בהם פועלת הקרן כוללים את שוק הרכב, תקשורת, פיננסים ותרבות דיגיטלית. ככל הנראה, הקרן יצרה קשר עם מספר גורמי מפתח בתחום ההון סיכון בארץ.

נזכיר כי שרי הקבינט אישרו הקמת ועדת פיקוח על השקעות זרות. זאת בלחץ אמריקני שנועד למנוע השקעות סיניות בישראל, לפחות כאלה שלא יקבלו אישור אמריקני. על רקע הניסיונות האמריקניים, כסף מסין ממשיך לזרום לישראל. כמו כן, גם לסיליקון וואלי בארה"ב. בסופו של יום נראה כי מלבד השקעות בפתרונות ליבה ביטחוניים, יהיה קשה לישראל או ארה"ב לעצור את עולם היזמות.

‘Rojava’da ki Özgürlükçü ve Demokrat Ortam Tehdit Altında, Ancak Rojava Kazanacak’

 Cache   

Dünyaca tanınmış düşünürler:

‘Rojava’da ki Özgürlükçü ve Demokrat Ortam Tehdit Altında, Ancak Rojava Kazanacak’

 

Dünyaca tanınmış, toplumsal olaylar karşında sesiz kalmayan,Türkiye’nin Kuzey-doğu Suriye’ye yönelik “harekatı” karşında “savaşı durdurun” imza kampanyasına katılan  Akademisyenlerden Noam Chomsky, Michael Löwy ve Janet  Biehl, Yeni Yaşam gazetesinden Yadigar Aygün-Hüseyin Kalkan’ın  sorularını yanıtlıyor.

Noam Chomsky “Türkiye’nin ağırlıklı olarak Kürt bölgelerine harekatı büyük bir savaş suçu. Önceki aşamalarda ciddi vahşet ve etnik temizlik vardı, şimdi de Trump’ın utanç verici ihanetinden sonra ‘uzunca olan bu ihanetler listesine bir yenisini eklercesine’ daha da genişledi. Rojava’daki mükemmel başarılar ciddi anlamda tehdit altında. Türkiye’nin de dahil olduğu, bu suç girişimine karşı güçlü bir uluslararası bir protesto olmalı" diyor.

Yeni Yaşam gazetesinden Yadigar Aygün-Hüseyin Kalkan’ın yazısı şöyle;

 TSK’nin tüm dünya tarafından katliamcı, hırsız ve haydut olarak tanımlanan ÖSO ile birlikte Kuzey ve Doğu Suriye’ye 9 Ekim’de başlattığı saldırı, farklı kutuplardaki hemen her ülkenin tepkisini çektiği gibi dünyanın dört bir yanında halklar, saldırganlığa son verilmesi için eylemlerini sürdürüyor. Dünya çapındaki düşünür, filozof ve entelektüeller de 2011’den bu yana özgür bir modelin inşa edildiği Kuzey ve Doğu Suriye etrafında kenetlenmiş durumda. Saldırıların başlamasının hemen ardından Meksika’dan Fransa’ya, Hindistan’dan İzlanda’ya 21 ülkeden 200’den fazla akademisyen, yazar, düşünür, onlarca grup, kurum ve kolektif, imza kampanyası başlatmıştı.

Rojava ile dayanışma mesajının da yer aldığı metne aralarında Noam Chomsky, David Harvey, Etienne Balibar, Vittorio Sergi gibi akademisyenler ile Janet Biehl ve Raul Zibechi gibi düşünürler de imza atmıştı. Bu kampanyanın imzacılarından Noam Chomsky, Michael Löwy ile Janet Biehl, gazetemiz Yeni Yaşam’ın sorularını yanıtladı. Amerikalı Janet Biehl, 2006 yılında yaşama veda eden siyasi teorisyen Murray Bookchin’nin son 19 yılını birlikte geçirdiği yol arkadaşı. ‘Ekoloji ya da Felaket: Murray Bookchin’nin Yaşamı’ adlı kitabın yazarı da olan Biehl, Rojava’ya bizzat gitmiş ve üzerinde çalışmalar yapmış bir isim. Birleşik Devletler vatandaşı olarak, hala Trump’ın 9 Ekim’deki ABD güçlerini aniden geri çekme kararının verdiği dehşet ve şok içerisinde olduğunu dile getiren Biehl, Demokratik Suriye Güçleri’ne (DSG) bağlı Kürt, Arap ve Süryani savaşçıların 2014’ten bu yana ABD öncülüğündeki koalisyon ile birlikte cesurca ve kahramanca savaşıp IŞİD halifeliğine son verdiğine değindi. “Bu, her iki tarafın da faydalandığı ve kesinlikle bundan gurur duyduğum harikulade bir ittifaktı” ifadelerini kullanan Biehl, Birleşik Devletler’in, Ortadoğu’da bundan daha iyi bir ittifak kuramayacağını kaydetti.

‘Trump diktatörlük istiyor’

Trump’ın geri çekilme kararını değerlendiren Biehl, şöyle dedi: “Ve şimdi onlara ihanet etmek mi? Tamamen mantık, etik ve insanlığı reddediyor. Bu absürt ve bir canavarın barbarca davranışı. Eğer açıklamak gerekirse, gerçek şu ki Trump bir diktatör olmak istiyor, diktatör olmaya hayran ve kendi arzularına teslim olmaktan zevk alıyor. Bunun sonucu olarak hiç zorluk yaşamadan Erdoğan’ın uzun süredir arzuladığı barışçıl ve demokratik Kuzey-Doğu Suriye işgaline izin verdi. Kendi tabiriyle ‘sert aşk’. Bunun birçok sonucu oldu: Barışçıl ve demokratik özerk Kuzey-Doğu Suriye altüst oldu. Kürtler ve Hristiyanlar katledildiler ve soykırıma maruz kaldılar. Yüzbinlercesi kaçtı. Zorbaların egemenliği güçlendi.”

Gözlemlerini anlattı

Bu yılın ilkbaharında bir film yapmak üzere Kuzey ve Doğu Suriye’ye gidip 1 ay zaman geçirdiğini aktaran Biehl, izlenimleri hakkında şöyle dedi: “Orada olağanüstü insanlarla tanıştım. Lütfen bana onlardan birazcık söz etmeme izin verin, hikayeleri onların neler kaybettiğini gösteriyor. Kamışlo’da, Rovaja Üniversitesi’nin yöneticisiyle tanıştım ve kendisi orada 4 yıllık programlar kurmuştu. Türkiye’nin tehditlerine bakmaksızın 4 yıl boyunca gençleri eğitmek için oldukça özgüvenliydi. Yine Kamışlo’da tüm Suriyeliler için hazırlanan yeni anayasa görüşmeleri sürerken, kadın haklarını güvenceye almak için çalışan Kongreya Star üyesi kadınla tanıştım. Tal Tamir’e yakın bir köyde, Afrin’den gelen ve oradan gelmiş mültecilerle tanıştım. Şimdi Hristiyan Süryanilerle yaşıyorlar. Kürtler ve Süryaniler birlikte evlerini ve barışçıl ve sevgi dolu bir ortak yaşam yeni yaşam inşa ediyorlar. Derik’te sıradaki projelerine hazırlanan Rojava Film Komünü üyeleriyle tanıştım. Rakka’da Arap Kadın Akademisi’nin üyeleriyle tanıştım. Orada kadınların erkeklerle aynı olduklarını ve demokratik eş yaşama ortakça katılabileceklerini öğreniyorlardı. Bunu yapmak için oldukça çeviktirler. Şarkı söyleyip dans ediyorlardı.”

‘Ülkemden utanç duyuyorum’

Biehl, bu bölgede kadınların nasıl bir dönüşüm geçirdiğini ve yine halklar arasındaki ilişkinin nasıl olduğunu da değerlendirdi: “Haseke’de Afrin gazisi olan YPJ’li kadınlarla tanıştım. Yakın zamanda savaşmak zorunda kalacaklarını biliyorlardı. Biri ‘Korkmuyoruz, çünkü biz YPJ’yiz’ demişti. Gittiğim her yerde insanlar kadın devrimine desteklerini açıklıyorlardı. Özellikle kadınlar IŞİD’e karşı mücadelelerinde savaşçı yeteneklerini kanıtladıktan sonra. Ayrıca Kobane Üniversitesi’nde Kürtçe dersine katıldım. Eğitimci dil devrimini anlatıyordu. Fırat vadisinde bir köyde Arap vatandaşların demokratik sistemi övdüğü bir köy komünü toplantısına katıldım. Daha sonra bu Arap yurttaşlar bana IŞİD yönetiminin altında yaşamanın korkunçluğunu anlattı. Ve ardından Kürtlerle bir olup köyü IŞİD’den kurtardıklarını anlattılar. Bana söyledikleri: Kürtler ve Araplar arasında fark yoktur. Ein Issa’da insanların refahını ve özgürlüğünü ‘garantilemeye’ adamış özyönetim üyeleriyle tanıştım. Bu planların, duyguların, beklentilerin tamamı olmasa da büyük bir çoğunluğu şimdi tehdit altında. Şimdi Rojava’nın kaderi için gözyaşı döküyorum, özellikle de benimle şahsen deneyimlerini paylaşan o kibar olağanüstü insanlar için ağlıyorum. Zor zamanlar ve zor seçimler onları bekliyor. Ülkemin onlara ihanet etmesinden dolayı utanç duyuyorum. Bu insan hakları ve demokrasi değeri açısında Birleşik Devletler için kalıcı bir leke.”

‘Tiranlara karşı mücadele’

Kuzey Suriye ile dayanışmak için herkesin elinden geleni yapması çağrısında bulunan Biehl, “İnsanlar, hükümetlerine uçuşa yasaklı bölgeyi destekleme çağrısında bulunabilirler. Böylelikle DSG savaşçılarının Türkiye destekli güçlere karşı bir şansları olabilir. Hükümetlere DSG’ye askeri ve insani yardım desteği çağrısında bulunabilirler. İnsanlar, acımasız savaş koşulları altında tıbbi yardım sağlanması için Heyva Sor a Kurdistane bağışta bulunabilirler. İnsanlar Kuzeydoğu Suriye’deki Kürtler, Araplar ve Asurilerle kendi amaçları ve kurumlarını yaşatmaları için dayanışmalarını açıklayabilirler. Demokratik ülkelerde yaşayan tüm insanlar kendi ülkelerinin demokratik özelliklerini güçlendirme zorundalar. Erdoğan, Putin, Esad ve İran ve ‘diğerleri’ne daha ileri bir tahribat yaratmalarına izin verilmemek zorunda. Sözde demokratik ülkelerde yaşayan insanlar bile ülkelerinde hüküm süren tiranlıklara karşı özgürlükçü hareketleri desteklemek zorundalar. Bu noktada, dünya, ‘birçok kez kullanılan ve daha sonra ihanet edilen’ Kürt halkına adalet sağlamak zorunda. Kürt otonomisi, yönetimi, kendi kendini yönetmesi bir gün gerçek olmak zorunda” diye ekledi.

‘Rojava tehdit altında’

Yaşamı boyunca dünyanın dört bir yanındaki mazlum halklara destek sunan Amerikan dilbilimci, filozof, mantıkçı, siyasî eleştirmen, tarihçi ve yazar Noam Chomsky, gazetemize verdiği demeçte TSK-ÖSO saldırganlığının vahametine vurgu yaptı. Chomsky’nin mesajı şöyle: “Türkiye’nin ağırlıklı olarak Kürt bölgelerine saldırısı büyük bir savaş suçu. Önceki aşamalarda ciddi vahşet ve etnik temizlik vardı, şimdi de Trump’ın utanç verici ihanetinden sonra ‘uzunca olan bu ihanetler listesine bir yenisini eklercesine’ daha da genişledi. Rojava’daki mükemmel başarılar ciddi anlamda tehdit altında. Türkiye’nin de dahil olduğu, bu suç girişimine karşı güçlü bir uluslararası bir protesto olmalı.”

‘Rojava’yla dayanışmak zorundayız’

Brezilyalı filozof, Marksist sosyolog Michael Löwy, Rojava’nın tüm ulusların ve dinlerin birlikte yaşayabileceği, demokratik, özgürlükçü, ekolojik ve feminist toplumun eşsiz bir deneyimi olduğunun altını çizdi. Löwy, “Dini politik güçlere ve hoşgörüsüz gerici tiranlıklara taban tabana zıt, insanlığın ve dayanışmanın mükemmel bir örneği. Trump’ın izniyle ve Erdoğan, köktenci çetelerin yardımıyla Rojava’yı yok etmeye çalışıyor. Bu sadece Kürtlere karşı değil demokrasi ve insan haklarına karşı bir suç. Ve bu hepimizi ilgilendiriyor. Kürt güçler ve müttefikleri bizim uluslararası desteğimizi hak ediyorlar. Biz Avrupa’da, ABD’de, Latin Amerika’da, Asya ve Afrika’da her yerde suç teşkil eden Türkiye işgaline karşı Rojava’yla dayanışmak zorundayız. Demokratik Rojava kazanacak” dedi.

1/32 Consolidated B-24D Liberator

 Cache   
1/32 Consolidated B-24D LiberatorThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed by Consolidated Aircraft Company ofSan Diego,California. Its mass production was brought into full force by 1943 with the aid of the Ford Motor Company through its newly constructed Willow Run facility, where peak production had reached one B-24 per hour and 650 per month in 1944. Other factories soon followed. The B-24 ended World War II as the most produced Allied heavy bomber in history, and the most produced American military aircraft at over 18,000 units, thanks in large measure to Henry Ford and the harnessing of American industry. It still holds the distinction as the most-produced American military aircraft. The B-24 was used by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific,Mediterranean, and China-Burma-India Theaters.
Often compared with the better-known B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-24 was a more modern design with a higher top speed, greater range, and a heavier bomb load; however, it was also more difficult to fly, with heavy control forces and poor formation-flying characteristics. Popular opinion among aircrews and general staffs tended to favor the B-17's rugged qualities above all other considerations in the European Theater. The placement of the B-24's fuel tanks throughout the upper fuselage and its lightweight construction, designed to increase range and optimize assembly line production, made the aircraft vulnerable to battle damage. The B-24 was notorious among American aircrews for its tendency to catch fire. Moreover, its high fuselage-mountedDaviswing also meant it was dangerous to ditch or belly land, since the fuselage tended to break apart. Nevertheless, the B-24 provided excellent service in a variety of roles thanks to its large payload and long range.
The B-24's most famous mission was the low-level strike against the Ploesti oil fields, inRomaniaon 1 August 1943, which turned into a disaster due to attack waves getting out of sequence.

40多年前還住在台灣的時候,當時還在戒嚴令下。什麼事都難以推動,動輒得咎。報禁、黨禁、髮禁、無所不禁。還有一陣子電視上只能唱三首「愛國歌」。到海邊或海港區參觀、遊玩、照相,都有海防人員來加以禁止。那時剛開有一條從基隆港航行到花蓮港的花蓮輪航線,好奇一下去乘坐個來回。結果是關卡嚴格,檢查人員對每個背包、手提行李都要打開調查。在我背後排隊的一位西方觀光客看了搖頭嘆息。1979年來美後,發現美國海闊天空,幾乎百無禁忌。一位朋友的岳父走船來美,朋友要我帶他去見他岳父。我的車子直接開入港區,停靠在船邊。到機場接機也可直接進入登機門,到飛機門邊接送朋友。台灣與美國在自由度上真有如天淵之別。 但,曾幾何時,這個局勢卻一直在逆轉中。 1997年第一次回台後,覺得台灣的自由民主有很大的進步,社會也開放了許多。加上後來在沒經歷過威權統治的年輕世代的參與下,台灣也越來越走向自由開放的道路。反過來說,美國的自由民主反而在倒退中。這當然與2001年後的反恐有關,但更重要的是川普上台後,使美國的自由民主度一直在持續倒退中。以自由之家2019年的報告來看,台灣在政治權利、民權、與自由度的列比上都居1.0,總分數是93。美國在列比上居1.5 ,總分數是86。這種互調是我在四十多年前難以想像的。 自由之家的評鑒是基於政治權利(political rights)與民權(civil liberties)來算的。有一個總分(aggregate score)與一個自由度的評分(由最好的1到最壞的7)。全球滿分的只有三個國家:芬蘭、挪威、瑞典。與台灣同分的有四個國家:奧地利、英國、與兩個小國。比台灣還自由的有22個國家(許多是很少聽見過的小國)。台灣於今年通過同婚,可以預見的是自由之家明年的評比將會對台灣加分。與東亞的一些國家做比較,日本列等1,總分96;南韓列等2,總分83;新加坡列等4,總分51;香港列等3.5 ,總分59;印度列等2.5 ,總分75;菲律賓列等3.0 ,總分61;中國列等6.5 ,總分11;北韓列等7.0 ,總分3;紐西蘭列等1,總分98;澳洲列等1,總分98。 看到台灣有這麼好的成就不免令人覺得欣慰,也感到與有榮焉。只是,用美國的衰退為例來看,自由民主也不是那麼穩定而歷久不衰的。在感到為台灣欣喜之時,也應考慮到該如何維護這得來不易的果實。 記得當年還住在台灣時,身邊支持國民黨的有一大堆人。因為那時台灣的經濟有所成長,也有部分自由,夫復何求。但反對國民黨的朋友也相當多。但在這些反對國民黨的人中,許多人也覺得相當無奈,只有哀嘆的份。但台灣後來是走上自由民主的轉型了。那麼,這個推動自由民主的動力在那裏。 如果說那個時代的台灣人是愛好自由民主的話,那也未必如此。在過去的美國,要了解一個州或一個城市的自由度指標,首先你得看對女權的接受度。在女權一般都受到尊重而漸漸的平權後,再來則是看對同性戀權益的接受度。以台灣而言,整個社會的氛圍(尤其是中南部)在目前都還算是保守的,對同婚的議題而言,難以說得到大部分的同意。在同婚議題的接受度上固然有城鄉與世代的差異,但至少台灣是通過了同婚法案。另外在廢死議題上,社會反對的聲音還是很大。其他就有關接納更多移民與難民的議題來看,可能還有很長的一段路要走。 顯然對自由民主的追求,並非當年推動民主化的主要動力。主要動力無寧是源於對二二八事件的平反要求,與要求能夠公開的討論台灣前途的議題。也就是說,台灣民族獨立運動才是台灣民主化的主要動力,自由民主運動則為其次。但這兩者一直都是同攜共進的。台灣的民族民主運動是仍需要一直持續下去的。運動固然有退有進,但有一股暗流是以前沒有,而我們應該加以警覺與防範的。那就是網路謠言在中共官方的操控下的大量運作。 在過去十多年來,普亭下的俄國開始積極的運用網軍,去操控歐洲的民意與選舉,製造分裂。歐洲極右翼勢力的升起與得票數的增加,多少與俄國的網軍有關。2016年的美國大選,俄國的黑手更是處處皆是,多少造成了川普的當選。俄國的這種「成就」中國當然不會不注意到。近年來中國的網軍也於台灣肆無忌憚的大行其道。多年來一直對台灣軟硬兼施,無所不用其極的中國,於2018年的台灣選舉中打出了漂亮的成績單,特別是韓國瑜的當選(Specter of Meddling by Beijing Looms over Taiwan’s Elections, New York Times, 11/12/2018; Josh Rogin: China’s interference in the 2018 elections succeeded – in Taiwan.

Only children more likely to be obese, study says

 Cache   
Only children may be at a higher risk for obesity than children who have siblings, according to a new study published Wednesday.

The study looked at the eating habits and body weight of only children -- called "singletons" by researchers -- and found they had less healthy eating habits and beverage choices than families with multiple children.

While the sample size was small and the study could not establish cause and effect, it does "raise an interesting point that we need to better understand," said pediatrician Dr. Natalie Muth, who chairs the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Obesity.

"Several studies in addition to this one have shown that only children are more likely to have overweight or obese," said Muth, who was not involved in the study.

"Why is that? While this study doesn't provide the answer to that question, it is helpful in building the body of research that eventually will provide clearer answers," Muth said.

What it means to be an 'only'

Singletons have long fascinated researchers. Early studies focused on the many negatives society falsely believed about only children, like the idea that a child would become headstrong, selfish, egocentric, competitive, excessively spoiled and unable to share if raised by themselves. Or, that most would likely turn into self-absorbed hypochondriacs.

"A lot of people assumed only children are defective, and so a lot of research has been done on achievement and personality," said Toni Falbo, a psychologist at the University of Texas at Austin who has researched singletons since the 1980s.

In 1986, Falbo did a meta-analysis of 200 studies on only children and found they excelled in achievement, intelligence and character over children with siblings -- especially those with older brothers or sisters.

"On average, only children get more education and they score higher on various achievement tests," Falbo said. "On personality achievements, they're doing fine. They have reasonably positive personalities and they're not prone to mental illness any more so than anyone else."

The only difference her analysis found was that singletons appeared to have stronger bonds with their parents than children with siblings, a finding that was later supported by a 2018 study of 10,000 German schoolchildren.

Connection to obesity

Over the last few decades, however, studies in Europe and China began to look at a link between weight gain and being an only child; some also looked at birth order.

The single-child policy in place in China between 1980 and 2016 gave researchers a gold mine of data. For example, one study of nearly 20,000 Chinese singletons found only sons in urban China were 36% more likely to be overweight and 43% more likely to be obese than sons who had siblings.

Other studies found being an only or last-born child was associated with obesity, possibly due to the ways that parents behaved during mealtimes: less praise, more association with food as a reward and more negative control over food choices.

In the current study, researchers found the mothers of only children were more likely to be overweight themselves. Could this study's results simply be due to the fact that a parent passed along poor eating habits or a genetic tendency for obesity?

"We know that obesity is very strongly connected within families so it is certainly possible that could explain the difference in this study," Muth said.

However, lead author Chelsea Kracht, a researcher at Louisiana State University's Pennington Biomedical Research Center, believes the results could be explained by the differences in planning and organization required of mothers with multiple children.

"With multiple children you're scheduling a little bit more of your meals. So we're going to have more at-home meals. We're probably going to have less fast food," Kracht said in an interview for the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Muth suggested several other possibilities. "Perhaps there is more food to go around. Or that they are less active because they don't have a live-in peer to play with them. Or maybe there is a biological factor at play," Muth said. "It is hard to say for sure, but this is the question that researchers are trying to figure out."

Falbo is currently researching singleton adolescents and finds they spend more time on screens, which reduces their ability to be active.

"They're not bugging their siblings and jumping up and down and doing the kinds of things siblings do," she said.

"My research also shows they are more likely to eat fast foods frequently," Falbo said. "In terms of the whole research area of obesity, it's known that the more home-cooked meals you eat as opposed to eating fast food, the less likely you are to have a high body mass index."

The good news, Falbo says, is that these behaviors are fixable. "You have to reduce the screen time [and] control the amount of fast food. It's doable," she said.

Muth agrees: "While we don't understand all of the ins and outs of why, we do know that there is a notably increased risk of childhood overweight and obesity for only children.

"Parents of only children who are aware of this increased risk may be able to prevent overweight or obesity in their child by paying extra attention to creating a healthy and active home environment," she said.

China approves seaweed-based Alzheimer's drug

 Cache   
Authorities in China have approved a drug for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, the first new medicine with the potential to treat the cognitive disorder in 17 years.

The seaweed-based drug, called Oligomannate, can be used for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's, according to a statement from China's drug safety agency. The approval is conditional however, meaning that while it can go on sale during additional clinical trials, it will be strictly monitored and could be withdrawn should any safety issues arise.

In September, the team behind the new drug, led by Geng Meiyu at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said they were inspired to look into seaweed due to the relatively low incidence of Alzheimer's among people who consume it regularly.

In a paper in the journal Cell Research, Geng's team described how a sugar contained within seaweed suppresses certain bacteria contained in the gut which can cause neural degeneration and inflammation of the brain, leading to Alzheimer's.

This mechanism was confirmed during a clinical trial carried out by Green Valley, a Shanghai-based pharmaceutical company that will be bringing the new drug to market.

Conducted on 818 patients, the trial found that Oligomannate -- which is derived from brown algae -- can statistically improve cognitive function among people with Alzheimer's in as little as four weeks, according to a statement from Green Valley.

"These results advance our understanding of the mechanisms that play a role in Alzheimer's disease and imply that the gut microbiome is a valid target for the development of therapies," neurologist Philip Scheltens, who advises Green Valley and heads the Alzheimer Center Amsterdam, said in the statement.

Vincent Mok, who heads the neurology division at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said the new drug showed "encouraging results" when compared to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors -- the existing treatment for mild to severe Alzheimer's.

"It is just as effective but it has fewer side effects," he told CNN. "It will also open up new avenues for Alzheimer's research, focusing on the gut microbiome."

Since very little is known about the mechanisms of the new drug, Mok said it should also be probed to see if it could have a protective effect and possibly slow down the progression of the disease in patients who have yet to develop strong symptoms of dementia.

The company said Oligomannate will be available in China "very soon," and it is currently seeking approval to market it abroad, with plans to launch third-phase clinical trials in the US and Europe in early 2020.

Alzheimer's disease, which starts with memory loss and escalates to severe brain damage, is believed to cause 60% to 70% of the cases of dementia reported worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Dementia affects an estimated 50 million people worldwide, including 9.5 million people in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Named after Alois Alzheimer, the neuropathologist who discovered the disease in 1906, it has so far confounded researchers and pharmaceutical companies.

In October, US pharmaceutical giant Biogen said it would pursue Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for an experimental treatment called aducanumab, after announcing in March it was canceling a large clinical trial for the drug.

Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Pfizer and Eli Lilly have all previously abandoned projects to develop a drug for Alzheimer's after unsatisfactory clinical data.

طعن نائب موالٍ للصين في هونغ كونغ

 Cache   


دانت الحكومة الصينية، الأربعاء، هجوما استهدف نائبا مؤيدا لها خلال مشاركته في نشاط ضمن حملته لخوض انتخابات مجالس المقاطعات المقبلة.
 
 
وقالت شرطة هونغ كونغ إن أحد معارضي الحكومة طعن وأصاب النائب المؤيد لبكين جونيوس هو، وهو شخصية يبغضها المتظاهرون، مضيفة أنها اعتقلت المهاجم.
 
وقال مسؤول بالشرطة، تحدث شريطة عدم الكشف عن هويته، إن جونيوس هو ومساعده والمهاجم نقلوا إلى مستشفى "توين مون" لتلقي العلاج.
 
وأظهر مقطع فيديو، نشر على مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي، جونيوس هو بينما كان يوزع باقات من الزهور قبل أن يطلب منه شخص التقاط صورة تذكاريه معه، بحسب ما ذكرت وكالة أسوشيتد برس.
 
 غير أنه أخرج سكينا من حقيبته وطعنه في صدره، لكن سرعان ما سيطر عليه هو وأشخاص آخرون، بينما استمر الرجل في كيل الشتائم لهو، ووصفه "بالحثالة".
 
يشار إلى أن هونغ كونغ، التي تتمتع بحكم شبه ذاتي، تشهد اضطرابات سياسية عنيفة منذ أكثر من 5 أشهر، فيما قال الحزب الشيوعي الصيني في بكين، الثلاثاء، إنه لن يتسامح مع أي "سلوك انفصالي" في هونغ كونغ، بعد أن دعا بعض المحتجين إلى الاستقلال.

AMLO: un año y ya está en medio de la tormenta perfecta

 Cache   

COLUMNA SIN NOMBRE Pablo Jair Ortega + Héctor Yunes, contundente mensaje. + Comienza a desarmarse el Yunismo. + Que el de la SEV también se acordó de Muguira. + El honolable señol Ávila.

Por donde se le vea, los grupos delincuenciales ya midieron al gobierno. --Chopenjawer

Al presidente López Obrador le está pasando lo que el dicta el viejo y conocido refrán: "Ni tanto que queme al santo, ni tanto que no lo alumbre", es decir, en política el personaje debe mantener un equilibrio entre sus apariciones públicas. No estar ausente, porque la gente se olvidará de él, pero tampoco presente en todo, porque se sobreexpone. Al presidente le pasa lo último: sus conferencias mañaneras lo han desgastado y sus mensajes lo han hecho añicos en tiempos de redes sociales. Son otros tiempos: las "mañaneras" que realizaba cuando era jefe de Gobierno del Distrito Federal (2000-2006) las hizo cuando había menos medios y sobre todo existía más control. Las redes sociales apenas y sonaban. Todos los días a las 6 de la mañana, AMLO contestaba las preguntas de los medios de comunicación y marcaba gran parte la agenda pública, además que sirvió para irse colocando como el gran favorito para las elecciones de 2006. Durante este periodo se le nombró uno de los mejores alcaldes del mundo y tuvo un alto porcentaje de aprobación, pero al final fue perdiendo simpatías por errores en su campaña, aunado a la guerra sucia proveniente principalmente de sus archirrivales del PAN. Otro ejemplo de cómo ya son otros tiempos para los que quizás no estaba preparado el lopezobradorismo, es la reciente declaración de la secretaria de Gobernación, Olga Sánchez Cordero, a quien parece que se le olvidó que existen celulares que graban y transmiten todo, y se le ocurrió dar un respaldo a Jaime Bonilla en el polémico tema de la gubernatura de 5 años en Baja California. Pero más allá de si están preparados para la ola mediática, redes sociales y campañas negras (que saben organizar bien sus opositores, especialmente del lado del panismo), la realidad es que uno de los principales problemas de López Obrador es su discurso poco claro en cuanto al combate a la delincuencia, que por un lado, según, apuesta por la pacificación del país, pero a su vez hace operativos fallidos como el ocurrido en Culiacán o detiene migrantes con fuerzas armadas federales. La inseguridad como bandera para sacar raja política es una de las armas más efectivas para causar mella en un gobernante. Podrá no haber empleo o haber otra devaluación (que ya México ha soportado muchas) pero nadie quiere quedar en medio de un fuego cruzado, perder a un ser querido en una balacera o ser víctima de una extorsión o secuestro. Aprovechando la circunstancia de la violencia, pequeñas células usan el nombre de cárteles del narcotráfico y causan pequeños infiernillos que si se juntan, son uno gigantesco; y ante la falta de estrategia clara de parte de la 4T, los delincuentes siguen causando problemas por una sencilla razón: la impunidad. Hasta el momento, por ejemplo, dos casos fuertes en el lopezobradorismo (Culiacán y LeBarón) sólo han mostrado una falta de tanates del gobierno para combatir a los grupos delincuenciales armados. El primero, por una estrategia fallida de captura a la cual al final se le tuvo que dar una salida casi diplomática para no causar más muertes; pero el segundo es un tema que aparte de involucrar a la delincuencia organizada, también evidenció fallas en la logística de ese revoltijo que llaman Guardia Nacional Por ejemplo, el secretario de Seguridad, Alfonso Durazo, argumentó que debido a la lejanía del lugar de los hechos donde ocurrió la masacre a miembros de la familia LeBarón, se retrasó llegada de la Guardia Nacional. Estamos hablando que los hechos fueron a la una de la tarde, pero hasta las 17 horas se movilizaron las fuerzas armadas. En ambos caso permanece el halo de la impunidad. En Culiacán los sicarios se salieron con la suya y nadie fue detenido ni castigado. En el caso de la masacre de LeBarón se apuesta que será igual y ojalá este autor se equivoque. Aquí en la aldea no vamos lejos: este martes por la mañana, el gobernador Cuitláhuac García Jiménez ofreció una disculpa pública por la desaparición forzada de tres jóvenes en Papantla, pero no ha habido resolución ni detenidos y menos castigados en los casos de las masacres de la palapa en Minatitlán o el "teibol" de Coatzacoalcos. En ambos casos, de igual manera, se mantiene la impunidad... Y la impunidad lastima, enoja más. Otro ejemplo de cómo sólo la justicia está en demagogias y discursos que no espantan a nadie: los supuestos prófugos de la justicia como el ex fiscal "Verduritas", el ex fiscal "cabeza de balón de futbol americano ponchado", la "Tula", entre otros, ni siquiera han sido capturados, pese a todo el ruido mediático por sus órdenes de aprehensión. Tampoco en la Cuarta "Transformeishion" han parado por denuncias y tomarse la foto con papelito en mano, pero en los hechos no hay nadie detenido, a excepción de un subsecretario que tiene prisión preventiva. En los hechos, no hay acciones contundentes que demuestren voluntad de hacer justicia... Y no debería de haber pretexto porque la CUATRO-TÉ tiene todo el escenario a su favor, tienen todo el power que ya hubiesen querido los recientes gobiernos veracruzanos priístas y yunista. A estas alturas, y volviendo al tema de que el lopezobradorismo ya se ve rebasado por los nuevos tiempos tecnológicos, el gobierno de AMLO se ve ahora en una tormenta perfecta donde sus mensajes diarios ya son tediosos y parecen ser contraproducentes hasta para su propia defensa, porque a salivazos no se combate a los malosos. Se aplaude que se hagan en las conferencias mañaneras informes completos como lo han hecho en casos como el de Culiacán y Santa Lucía (especialmente inédito porque son asuntos de la Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional), pero López Obrador no ha podido en estos días recientes defenderse o justificar el caso Culiacán y se ve difícil que también se logre en el caso LeBarón. Basta decir que hasta sus promotores más férreos, más chairos, como el actor y cineasta Gael García Bernal, lanzó un mensaje demoledor vía Twitter que replicó en varios medios: "Si no cambia el gobierno y @lopezobrador_ de narrativa para asumir sus responsabilidades ¿Para qué chingados votamos por ustedes? Más vale que asuman por completo su responsabilidad y hagan lo imposible para que esto no suceda más. Que se vuelva su mantra y su objetivo". Y es que la estrategia de atender las causas de la delincuencia es buena, pero es a muuuuy largo plazo; mínimo --creo yo-- para unos diez años para reeducar a nuevas generaciones y hacerles entender que todo lo relacionado al narco es malo; ¿y qué pasa con las que en 20 años recientes nunca se les educó y siguen pensando que la vida del sicariato/narcotráfico es lo mejor que les pudo haber pasado en la vida? ¿Esos que de plano ya están entregados a la muerte sin importar las consecuencias? ¿Cómo convencerles desde un púlpito de mensajes mañaneros que, honestamente, sólo interesan un sector muy reducido de la población? ¿A esos cómo los combates cuando ven que pueden salir impunes y sin castigo de masacres, ejecuciones, cobros de piso, extorsiones y secuestros? Porque ese es el verdadero cáncer de todo este rollo: la maldita impunidad que duele más que el no tener disculpas oficiales de los gobernantes. NOTA PARA PEGAR EN EL REFRI: Contundente el mensaje del diputado federal Héctor Yunes Landa en la Cámara de Diputados, con respecto al caso LeBarón: "No omitir que en 11 meses esta es la masacre 15, más de una masacre por mes. Decir que lamento mucho que el sistema de inteligencia del gobierno de la República se dedique más a seguir a cibernautas y bots que estar viendo problemas como esos y preveerlos. No es suficiente ofrecer que se va hacer justicia, lo que queremos es que esto se prevenga, que no sea necesario hacer justicia, sino que no se cometan estas masacres". OTRA NOTA: Este miércoles toma protesta el nuevo Comité Directivo Estatal del PAN en Veracruz, cuyo presidente será el originario de Tantoyuca, Joaquín Rosendo Guzmán Avilés. Una de las primeras determinaciones que causó escozor al interior, es que ya solicitó la remoción del coordinador de la bancada en el Congreso del Estado, quitando a Sergio Hernández Hernández y colocando a Omar Guillermo Miranda Romero. Aparentemente va en serio lo de desarmar los resabios del Yunismo incluso al interior del blanquiazul. OTRA NOTA EXTRA: Que nos dicen en la Secretaría de Educación que el secre Zenyazen Escobar también fue de los que se acordó de quién fue Domingo Muguira y expresó sus condolencias vía redes sociales. Oki doki. LA ÚLTIMA PORQUE MI MAMI YA SOBRECALENTÓ LAS LENTEJAS: Quien anda de gira artística representando a México y a Veracruz en el mundo, es el periodista Édgar Ávila Pérez, corresponsal de EFE y de El Universal. Durante más de un mes, el comunicador ha participado en un seminario para periodistas latinoamericanos en varias ciudades de provincias de China, al lado de compañeros de Costa Rica, Panamá, Venezuela, República Dominicana, Nicaragua y Colombia, entre otros. De igual manera, nos platica (a las cuatro de la mañana, canijo, no manches) que estuvo en reuniones con directivos de medios oficiales de comunicación de esa nación, visitando ciudades como Pekín, pero también se adentró al corazón de China al recorrer ciudades y pueblos del noroeste, casi en los límites con Mongolia. Auspiciado por el Ministerio de Comercio de la República Popular de China, el periodista fue el encargado de dar el discurso inaugural ante autoridades de esa nación y siempre estuvo en primera fila en los encuentros de altos directivos de la Agencia Xinhua, revista China Hoy y medios de comunicación de la provincia de Gansu. No es la primera vez que Édgar es seleccionado para encuentros de periodistas latinoamericanos, hace al menos dos años fue enviado a Israel, la Franja de Gaza, Cisjordania y Siria a realizar coberturas informativas de la mano de Fuente Latina... Mínimo que traiga una pinche playerita como las que venden en el malecón de Veracruz. Enhorabuena, bro.   @pablojair

Phylogeny of marine Ainuyusurika tuberculata (Tokunaga) (Diptera: Chironomidae: Chironominae), with description of the immature stages

 Cache   

The marine Chironomidae Ainuyusurika Sasa et Shirasaka, 1988, previously known from the adults only, is associated with its immature stages for the first time based on reared specimens from Oriental China. The larva resembles those of Sergentia Kieffer and Endochironomus Kieffer in the ventromental plate with an anteromedial projection and the 5-segmented antenna with opposite Lauterborn organs. The pupal thoracic horn has 12 branches at maximum and netted tergite spinulation which appears to be similar to those of Polypedilum Kieffer, Endotribelos Grodhaus, Phaenopsectra Kieffer and Sergentia. The phylogenetic relationship was furtherly explored through molecular analysis based on concatenation of five gene makers (18S, 28S, CAD1, CAD4 and COI-3P) using both mixed-model Bayesian and maximum likelihood inference methods. The result shows Ainuyusurika is nested with an assemblage of Endochironomus, Phaenopsectra and Endotribelos. We concluded that Ainuyusurika is a good independent genus showing affinity with Endochironomus-Phaenopsectra related genera.

Apple renueva su página de privacidad aproximándose a lo que parece imposible: que sea clara y fácil de leer

Estamos acostumbrados a la letra pequeña y lo complejo. A páginas web corporativas sobre condiciones de uso, avisos legales y privacidad en las que abundan los textos largos, el lenguaje farragoso y un diseño que hasta puede complicar la lectura. Y Apple parece que ha decidido diferenciarse, al menos en las formas, con su nueva página sobre privacidad: apple.com/es/privacy.

"La privacidad es un derecho fundamental", arranca proclamando la marca de la manzana en un alegato en el que asegura que la privacidad es uno de sus principales valores. Tras el breve texto de presentación, Apple desgrana su declaración genérica sobre privacidad servicio por servicio con un lenguaje claro, una más que destacable concisión y un diseño práctico. Una rareza.

De la nueva página sobre privacidad de Apple destaca el lenguaje claro, la concisión y el diseño

De lo confuso y difícil a lo claro y sencillo

Snapshot 2019 11 06 16 22 18

La nueva página de privacidad de Apple, como decíamos, estructura la información por servicios. Encontramos los principales: Safari, Mapas, Fotos, Mensajes, Siri, Wallet, Apple Pay y Salud.

Para acceder a la información que explica cómo se maneja la privacidad en ellos basta con hacer clic sobre el botón Más. Veremos textos como este, referente a Siri, un servicio envuelto recientemente en serias polémicas que indirectamente se ven reflejadas en las explicaciones que da la compañía como podemos apreciar en las últimas palabras de forma bastante evidente:

"Al diseñar Siri, partimos de la idea de que conociera al usuario sin revelar su identidad a Apple ni a nadie. Para usarlo, no hace falta iniciar sesión con el ID de Apple, y el propio dispositivo procesa toda la información que sea posible sin mandarla a los servidores de Apple.

Los datos que se procesan o guardan en nuestros servidores se vinculan a un identificador aleatorio, que es una larga secuencia de letras y números. Esta información nos sirve únicamente para mejorar el funcionamiento de Siri, y nunca se comparte ni se vende. El audio de tus peticiones solo se guarda si has elegido compartirlo con Apple para ayudarnos a perfeccionar Siri".

Aparentemente, Apple no ha hecho cambios significativos en el modo de tratar los datos con esta actualización de la web, tampoco para abordar las recientes acusaciones sobre falta de privacidad en Safari. Según una advertencia de activistas proprivacidad, la compañía habría enviado datos de usuarios de iOS a la compañía china Tencent siendo un asunto bastante complejo.

Sea como sea, más allá de promesas y declaraciones de intenciones llevadas o no a cabo, Apple sí señala el camino en cuanto a la manera de comunicar de una forma clara y fácil de leer la información básica que un usuario debería conocer. Para entrar al detalle y profundizar siempre existirán otros recursos.
