GOLF le FLEUR* & Converse Take to the Trails With New GLF Gianno Ox

 Cache   

Tyler, The Creator's long-running partnership with Converse, known as GOLF le FLEUR*, continues on with a  brand-new silhouette dubbed the GLF Gianno Ox. Arriving in two colorways, the GLF Gianno Ox is vastly different from the sleek retro stylings of GOLF's previous Chuck 70 and One Star collaborations, opting instead for a chunky outdoors-inspired construction.Arriving in both Nike ACG-esque "Bright Concord" and natural-hued "Cuban Sand" makeups, the design sits in the unique grey area between sneaker and boot. The "Bright Concord" combines a vibrant purple base with buttery brown leather overlays, accenting itself even further with pops of orange, yellow and teal. Meanwhile, the "Cuban Sand" melds a trifecta of tan tones on its upper, with hits of black on the tongue and heel adding stark contrast.Although the schemes are wildly different, some of the accents are similar. Each shoe features debossed GOLF branding on its midfoot and tongue, special stamps on the sockliners, and strips of high-vis reflective material running through the midfoot accents, eyestays and heel. Both are then completed by a beefy two-tone midsole — olive on the "Bright Concord," tan on the "Cuban Sand" — and all-terrain tread outsole with cobranded details.This isn't the first time GOLF has presented unique collaborative product in recent months, as they also teamed up with Suicoke for two DEPA-CAB sandals. As any supporter of Tyler and his brand knowns, you've got to expect the unexpected, and the GLF Gianno Ox is certainly that.Fans can expect a release at retailers like Sneakersnstuff on November 11. The MSRP is set at $120 USD.Tyler, The Creator's got more than just new footwear going on too: he was recently named the top music innovator of 2019 by the WSJ Magazine.

Schneider Electric Partners With Web Summit to Reduce Carbon Footprint for One of World’s Largest Tech Events

 Cache   

Schneider Electric is bringing its collaborative approach to carbon and environmental solutions to this year’s Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal (Nov. 4-7) where it will facilitate progress towards the event’s carbon neutrality goal. Schneider Electric will work with the Web Summit to reduce greenhouse gas emissions produced from the event using a combination of energy attribute certificates and carbon offsets to address emissions produced by the event’s energy consumption and attendee travel.

“As one of the most sustainable companies in the world, Schneider Electric is committed to helping clients and partners in their own sustainability pursuits,” said Emmanuel Lagarrigue, Chief Innovation Officer at Schneider Electric. “We recently announced that we will reach our own carbon neutral goal by 2025, five years earlier than expected, and are looking forward to working with Web Summit to help them achieve their goals.”

Schneider Electric partners with organizations of all sizes to help them achieve their sustainability goals, and enabled the Paris Marathon to become the first carbon neutralmarathon earlier this year. To calculate the carbon footprint of the Web Summit, experts from Schneider Electric Energy and Sustainability Services will gather data, including the size of the event space, number of attendees, distance traveled and more. Once the footprint is calculated, the associated emissions will be addressed through clean technologies such as carbon offsets. A highly valid method of counterbalancing emissions, verified offsets can be sourced from a
variety of projects, ranging from forestry to landfill gas capture and flare.

The Web Summit expects that more than 70,000 participants will travel to Lisbon for this year’s event. Offsetting the estimated GHG emissions from air travel alone for this amount of people would be the equivalent of planting more than one million trees. The estimation for emissions is based on an official air travel emission calculator prepared by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and takes into account the length of each flight, type of carrier and cabin class.

“Our global network of entrepreneurs and leaders presents us with an enormous opportunity to provide trusted guidance, inspiration and thought leadership in order to help us stand together in trying to solve the world’s biggest social, economic and environmental issues,” said Peter Gilmer, Chief Impact Officer of Web Summit. “We believe in leading by example and are pleased to have Schneider Electric with us, taking significant steps to continually improve the sustainability of our event.”

Schneider Electric is the world’s largest provider of corporate renewable energy consulting services and has worked with thousands of organizations to set and achieve environmental goals at all stages of their sustainability journey, including developing emission reduction and renewable energy procurement roadmaps. Emmanuel Lagarrigue will be participating on multiple panels at Web Summit and will discuss Schneider Electric’s Innovation at the Edge program, which includes investments, incubations, partnerships and joint ventures with start-ups and companies around the world to drive the sustainable energy revolution.

Going to Web Summit? Tips for a Sustainable Stay in Lisbon:

As the host city of Web Summit, Lisbon, Portugal is a leader in sustainability. The city was recently named as the 2020 European Green Capital award winner for its efforts in addressing sustainable land use, urban mobility, green growth and eco innovation, climate change adaptation and waste. While carbon offsets aren’t an option for everyone, there are many ways
to incorporate more sustainable practices:

  • Explore Public Transportation

    Lisbon has already implemented measures to restrict car use and prioritize cycling, public transport and walking. In 2017, Lisbon launched a bike-sharing scheme, with electric bikes comprising two thirds of the fleet to encourage cycling in the hillier parts of the city.

  • Limit Single-Use

    When possible, utilize reusable utensils, glasses and coffee mugs in lieu of single-use containers or bring your own. This will greatly reduce the amount of waste that needs to be thrown away or recycled.

  • Dine Sustainably

    Dining at places that source food locally can help to limit our carbon footprint. Lisbon is also home to many vegan and vegetarian restaurants.

Keynote Speakers to Present at HTNG's Insight Summit in Park City, UT

 Cache   

CHICAGO (July 10, 2019) – Caroline Y. Chan of Intel Corporation and Dan Cockerell, former VP of Disney’s Magic Kingdom will give keynote presentations at the 2019 HTNG Insight Summit meeting on August 5-7 at The Chateaux, Deer Valley in Park City, UT.

Caroline Y. Chan is Intel Corporation's vice president of business incubation and general manager of the Data Center Group. She is responsible for driving new services running across the network infrastructure, working closely with network service cloud service providers and enterprises.

Chan and her team will lead pathfinding of advanced technology solutions that are enabled and accelerated by 5G capabilities such as AI, machine learning, blockchain, data analytics, immersive media, cloud gaming, and others.

Dan Cockerell first joined Disney in 1989 as a participant of the Walt Disney World’s College Program, where he worked in resort parking and front desk guest services at hotels. Upon graduation from Boston University, he was selected into Disney’s Management Trainee Program and joined the task force to open Disneyland Paris.

After five years in France, Cockerell returned to Walt Disney World Florida where he held successive executive positions in both resort hotels and theme parks. These roles grew from General Manager of the All Star Resort to later becoming VP of Disney’s Epcot Center theme park, followed by serving as VP of Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, and culminating in becoming VP of the Magic Kingdom theme park. Responsible for daily operations of the largest theme park in the world, Cockerell oversaw the experiences of 12,000 cast members and over 20 million annual visitors.

In addition to general sessions, a number of HTNG workgroups will also meet to continue their work on topics of 5G, business analytics, fiber optics, guest data, integration, IoT, staff alert technology, payments, Wi-Fi and more.

THURS NOV 7

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

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

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

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

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

FRI NOV 8

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

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

The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan suddenly passed away a year later.) Much has happened in Forster’s life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $22-25) ROBERT HAM


SUN NOV 10

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


MON NOV 11

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

Son Little
Son Little has been making musical alchemy ever since releasing his debut EP in 2014. But on his early work, including his 2015 self-titled debut, you can hear Little only beginning to refine his unique sound—a mix of soul, blues, and electronica—which he’d come close to perfecting on 2017’s brilliant sophomore album New Magic. For his new EP, Invisible, Little traveled to Paris’ famed Studios Ferber, and the six new songs show the multi-instrumentalist and singer still continuing to develop and experiment with his craft. Tonight’s show at the Old Church isn’t to be missed; this preacher’s son is sure to give a sanctified and transcendent performance. (Wed Nov 13, 8 pm, the Old Church, 1422 SW 11th, $20-25) SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY

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

Summer Walker
Atlanta-born singer/songwriter Summer Walker has become R&B’s newest “It Girl” on the heels of her single “Girls Need Love” (along with a Drake remix), and her outstanding studio debut Over It. Vocally speaking, Walker’s appropriately titled project is basically flawless. There are obvious standouts, like “Playing Games” featuring Bryson Tiller, “Wasted,” and “Come Thru” which both samples and features Usher. Another notable release is an older cut, “Session 32,” which Walker sometimes likes to perform on acoustic guitar. And from the sounds of her live performances online, she tends to sound identical to the record. If you’re into the sex-positivity of Megan THEE Stallion and like well-seasoned R&B vocals riding on a trap beat (à la H.E.R. and Ella Mai), Summer Walker’s impeccable soul-singing is right up your alley. (Thurs Nov 14, 8:30 pm, Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, all ages, $35-39.50) JENNI MOORE

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

Rodney Crowell, Joe Robinson
Among a particular school of songwriters, Rodney Crowell is country music royalty. His place in the Nashville firmament was secured by not only the run of number one singles he scored in 1988-89 (all from his album Diamonds & Dirt), but also his work with Emmylou Harris and lesser known masterpieces like “Voilà, an American Dream” and “Stars on the Water.” With that pedigree, Crowell should be headlining a much bigger venue than the Alberta Rose Theatre. But rather than gripe about that, let’s instead revel in the fact that we’ll get to experience his intimate songs in an appropriately intimate setting. (Thurs Nov 14, 8 pm, Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta, all ages, $35-55) ROBERT HAM

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

FRI NOV 15

Brother Ali, Evidence
The beauty of hip-hop’s multifaceted evolution over the past couple of decades is that there’s something out there for everyone. If, for example, sing-song pop-hop or slurry Soundcloud rap isn’t your thing, you can dig into artists like Brother Ali and Evidence, two skilled MCs connected to respected indie hip-hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Ali is the better known of the two, thanks to a two-decade career built around his thoughtful, soft-spoken style and his social activism. His most recent album All the Beauty in This Whole Life is another banger in an incredibly consistent catalog. Evidence’s sound is more aggressive, both in its lyrical content and its beats. He came up with LA’s Dilated Peoples, one of the giants of the ’90s underground, but he ain’t falling off: His most recent album Weather or Not was one of the best releases of 2018, regardless of genre. (Fri Nov 15, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE Cesar E Chavez, all ages, $22-26) BEN SALMON

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

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

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

SUN NOV 17

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

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
The 56-year-old Preservation Hall Jazz Band embodies the best of New Orleans’ slightly sloshy French Quarter: the music. A cornerstone of the city’s jazz scene, Preservation Hall’s upbeat, brassy tunes sound plucked from a Frenchmen Street second line procession. So It Is (2017), the septet’s second album containing all-original melodies, infuses the band’s historic jazz tunes with Afro-Cuban beats, adding to Preservation Hall’s magical ability to transform melodies into a layered history of New Orleans. Now the prolific band is touring in support of their new record A Tuba to Cuba, out on November 29. Their recent main-stage set at Pickathon was worthy of all the standing ovations, and their upcoming show, while indoors, should be just as marvelous. (Sun Nov 17, 8 pm, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, all ages, $26-109) ALEX ZIELINSKI

Big Freedia, Low Cut Connie
New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia comes to Portland quite a bit. Most recently, Freedia played a wild, twerk-forward opening set at the Roseland while on her joint tour with fellow NOLA act Tank and the Bangas. Freedia is known for her high-energy live shows, and inviting a bunch of audience members on stage, where they can present their best twerking skills while Freedia hypes them up. Having toured with other contrasting acts like LCD Soundsystem and the Postal Service, Freedia’s current tour with roots rockers Low Cut Connie should come as no surprise.

TUES NOV 19

Cher, Nile Rogers and Chic
If you were wondering if Cher, now 73, is ever going to stop performing—she’s not. Cher is a goddamn juggernaut of energy, hits, and sass that will outlast the final cockroach crawling on Earth after climate change has burned the rest of us to a crisp. She will rise out of whatever ashes are left, surrounded by sequined flames, looking FABULOUS, and rocketing into the stratosphere singing, “Do you BELIEVE in life after love?” And as she and her gorgeous contralto voice soars, hurtling headlong into space, she’ll still be tweeting sweet shit-talk at Donald Trump, and plotting her fifth comeback (YES, FIFTH—LOOK IT THE FUCK UP) eventually landing in some galaxy far, far away, ready to entertain and delight every person, alien, or thing that is lucky enough to be in her glorious path—just as she has for the past 44 years. Nile Rogers and Chic (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) are fortunate enough to be sharing this bill (those lucky sons of bitches). (Tues Nov 19, 7:30 pm, Moda Center, 1 N Winning Way, all ages, $27-647) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Liturgy, Truck, U SCO
Like foie gras and Snickers and amusement parks, Liturgy songs are deeply satisfying until the second you’ve had enough, at which point you just want to bail and not think about having a body and brain anymore. This is not a knock on band mastermind Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s boundary-nudging black metal. His compositions mess with the cloistered world of extreme music in rewarding ways, but they can be kind of a lot. Take this not as a warning but as a promise: Liturgy will push you past the line between too much and way too much, and you’ll definitely feel it in the morning.

Julia Jacklin, Christian Lee Hutson
Anyone present at either of Julia Jacklin’s Pickathon performances this past summer (but especially her Treeline Stage set) are keenly aware of the Australian artist’s hypnotic stranglehold on timeless folk songwriting. Her 2019 sophomore record, Crushing, catapulted her into the echelon of Aussies/Kiwis apparently plotting to take over the singer/songwriter world (along with Courtney Barnett, Aldous Harding, and Stella Donnelly, to name a few). “Crushing” is a great descriptor for Jacklin’s easy-breezy pop tunes, too, like the driving, heavy-lidded “Head Alone” or the more raucous “Pressure to Party.” Give her a great welcome back to Oregon tonight in the cozy Aladdin. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, all ages, $18-22) RYAN J PRADO

Alessandro Cortini
Best known as the keyboard player in Nine Inch Nails and the frontman for electronic-alternative band SONOIO, Alessandro Cortini is coming to shake things up at Holocene. Strangely, Cortini’s solo artistry is almost unheard of, which makes describing why you should see this show harder than normal. Cortini’s an artist who cares about his craft; every note is calculated, but only you can determine how they are deciphered. Attending a Cortini show almost feels intimate, but he is a master of tone and bass, so even when you feel alone, it will warm your soul to know that you aren’t. Get out on the dance floor and get ready to have your mind blown. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, $18-20) KATHERINE MORGAN

{{image:8}}

CRITIC’S PICK: Brittany Howard
Brittany Howard has more than proven herself as a leader in the retro-soul movement. After two critically acclaimed albums with roots-rock band Alabama Shakes (2012’s Boys & Girls and 2015’s Grammy-winning Sound & Color), singer/songwriter Brittany Howard dropped her solo studio debut Jaime in September. On this new album, Howard has full artistic control and pushes the envelope of soul music with an authentic, modern angle that doesn’t shy away from the vulnerable or political. The stunning record is a testament to Howard’s expert vocal control, and its songs reveal that she’s done her fair share of soul-searching—where do I even start? Lead single “History Repeats” was already exceptional, but the vintage-sounding “Stay High” has become one of my favorite (and most applicable) love songs of 2019. (Howard also recently released a gorgeous video of her performing a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in a rural New Mexico setting, and it’s a master class in musicianship.) Other highlights include... the entire fucking thing, but especially “He Loves Me,” “Goat Head,” the weary “13th Century Metal,” and “Georgia.” As Howard explained during her recent performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, “Georgia” was written from “the perspective of being a little young Black gay girl having a crush on an older Black girl, and not knowing how to tell her, or what to say or how I was feeling.” The song starts with a sweetly sung chorus that repeats “I just want Georgia to notice me,” and then Howard opens each verse as if she’s addressing a letter to the titular character, crooning the familiar melody of “Georgia on My Mind” for just a moment. Howard’s careful and tender vocalizations beautifully express her feelings of uncertainty during the song’s climax: (“Is it unnatural?/Georgia, is it cool?/I wanna tell you that I love you”); but it’s the exquisite, mounting sound of organ keys and a swelling guitar solo that make the love confession song a full-blown masterpiece. From watching all the videos of her recent live sessions, it’s hard to determine whether Howard and her band sounds better live or recorded, but her upcoming gig at the Roseland will give Portlanders a chance to decide for themselves. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Roseland Theater, 8 NW 6th, all ages, $54.50-69.50, w/Georgia Anne Muldrow) JENNI MOORE

Self-drive cars

 Cache   

An up and coming hot topic is the emergence of the reality of self-drive cars. The general reaction is to respond that they will and could not ever work as a norm. But we have seen many crazy ideas that were originally conceived in science fiction or futuristic insights that have become a reality. Take the wrist watch worn by James Bond or the communication between the car Kit in the Knightrider series. 

Some exuberant investment advisors are predicting that the technology behind self-drive cars will be the next big one in the order of the smart phone or even the internet. In their space they are trying to attract investors at the early incubation stage to invest before the technology matures. It will depend on very sophisticated processors interacting with sensors and then with the mechanical and electrical 
functions of the vehicle so the role of the engineer will remain crucial in this development. I particular it would seem that Mechatronics Engineering will have a massive future added to by the growing dependence on robotics and mechanized replacement of manual labour.

Fast forwarding to the future when the self-drive car becomes the norm does raise some interesting 
questions and issues. What does the driver actually do? I guess one sets the destination data up via the GPS and hits the start button and that’s it. Sit back and take it easy or would one distrust the system and sit back in a state of anxious stress that the car will not avoid another person-driven vehicle behaving like a normal Cape Town driver does when in a state of road rage or plain impatience. 

It would seem that the best situation would be when all cars are self-drive and no people are involved in the process. What then are the risks? What if the power system (battery) fails?  A low level warning should bring the car to a gentle stop in a safe parking area identified on the route map.  Some form of protection against manual override by a frustrated driver must be implemented who would otherwise create the necessary but irritating avoiding action by the smart self-drive cars nearby.

Let’s however consider all the advantages. On the assumption that going physically to the office is still a requirement i.e. virtual offices have not eliminated this need, then imagine settling into the car with 
one’s digital equipment (very smart phones and tablets) and working on some productive activity instead of getting impatient with the traffic or cursing the traffic cop that saw you using the phone at the wheel. And if the cop does stop the car or the camera records an over-speed, then should the ticket be made out to the processor for an error in judgment for not observing the speed sign via visual sign reading? Most likely there will not be any traffic cops as everything will be via electronic communication cameras and digital records. A fine notice comes up on your vehicle screen.

The real benefit will be for the pubs, nightclubs, house, parties etc where one will not have to worry about a sober driver or being caught by the breathalyzer. Simply jump in, grab one for the road and off you go safely into your garage where the gate and door all open in advance of your arrival through intelligent programming sent out by the car as it arrived. Booze industry, watch this space. Maybe another good investment would be shares in SAB. 

And of course all these smart self-drive cars will be electric powered with advanced battery technology 
where the batteries can double up as home energy storage on a swop out basis. And all charged by one’s own solar system, but still connected to the main grid in order to both draw from the system or feed back into it. I actually fancy this era. All made by Engineers.

Un recorrido por los más llamativos looks en la alfombra roja de los MTV MTV EMAs

Sevilla fue el escenario para que MTV, la cadena de televisión musical más importante del mundo presentara una edición más de los Europe Music Awards, en donde las celebridades invitadas a la alfombra roja son el vivo ejemplo de las eclécticas tendencias de la moda urbana que debemos llevar ya mismo.

The Ultimate Guide for Purchasing the Ideal Most Yacht for Your Needs

Buying a yacht is really a huge financial decision. It is not your average day to day dinner purchase. When that time comes and you want to buy one, you will need to be extensive about your research so that you are sure that you are not making any mistakes on this huge purchase. This article primarily concentrates on ensuring that you clearly understand the guidelines that are most instrumental when purchasing the ideal most yacht for your needs.

The first thing that you need to do is to consider your options. Most people think of yachts just for the luxury. However, there are many other features that one needs to check such as what you intend to do with it and whether it really satisfies the needs that you have. Check the space available for the kitchen, bathroom as well as the waters that you will be sailing. All this work in ensuring that you make the right choices regarding the ideal most yacht. For those that are closer to the ports, you realize that it becomes easy for you if you have a smaller boat. On the other hand, if you intend to engage in water racing, scuba diving and wake boarding, you will need to ensure that you work with the yachts that suit your needs.

The other thing that you should check is the budget that you have set so that you align that with the priced tags. It is always a wise idea if you work with the much that you can afford and deem reasonable. Now, as for the yacht, be ready to dig deeper into your pockets to really get the yacht that you desire. There are not cheap yachts which means if you find one that is being sold for ridiculously low prices, then that means that there is some compromise in the quality. Regardless of the fact that you want to save, you will need to make sure that you work with the yacht dealer that promises you value for your money, quality and affordability. Some of them will even have arranged financing so that you do not struggle making the payments. Visit three or four providers and get to know what you are getting yourself into.

The Amazing Hidden Knowledge Of Methods You Can Master Ferrostatin-1 Without Having Any Practical Knowledge!

 Cache   

As the suppressive effects of IDO are mostly mediated through DCs, expose understanding of just how IDO can be controlled in these cellular material is important to the form of precise methods to cause strong immune system tolerance. In order to evaluate modifications in IDO mRNA Ferrostatin-1 price log quantities pursuing antiporter blockade, all of us utilized digital camera mRNA profiling and also in contrast immature DCs, DCs grew up simply by incubation using LPS (mature DCs) and also adult DCs classy within cystine/cysteine-free channel to avoid antiporter customer base involving cystine [see on the internet Promoting Details regarding Materials and also Methods]. Like statement of other individuals, all of us learned that IDO mRNA transcripts were increased within fully developed DCs when compared with premature DCs [3] (Fig.?1A). In line with the speculation, IDO mRNA records were significantly greater within older DCs classy within cystine/cysteine-free channel when compared to both immature and fully developed DCs (Fig.?1A). Since IDO can be firmly governed on the translational and post-translational levels, we up coming quantified kynurenine amounts inside Digicam tradition supernatants as being a way of IDO enzymatic exercise. To accomplish this, we utilized a well-established colorimetric strategy [4]. Antiporter uptake regarding cystine has been inhibited through culturing DCs inside cystine/cysteine-free medium with regard to 16 and also 24?h as well as through the treatment of DCs with l-homocysteic acid (LHC), a powerful competitive inhibitor of the antiporter that doesn't function as a substrate with regard to GSH activity [5]. Even though immature DCs didn't display IDO enzymatic action (not revealed), LPS activated any modest improve Smad pathway inside IDO task since previously reported [3] (Fig.?1B). In line with our mRNA data, IDO enzymatic task Y-27632 was significantly improved when antiporter-dependent uptake associated with cystine was inhibited (Fig.?1B). Both LHC and also cystine/cysteine-free medium substantially improved IDO enzymatic exercise at Sixteen as well as 24?h relative to non-treated older DCs. Obtained together, these files boost the chance how the antiporter characteristics like a regulator involving IDO exercise throughout human DCs and therefore may directly control the end result associated with DC�CT mobile or portable relationships. To sum up, unravelling your components in which peripheral threshold will be governed features immediate relevance to add mass to modern medical ways to attenuate autoimmunity, sensitivity and hair transplant denial. Right here, all of us determine a manuscript role for the cystine/glutamate antiporter as a regulator involving IDO exercise in DCs. These types of information declare that the running term associated with IDO could possibly be redox governed and so lengthen each of our comprehension of exactly how IDO could be technically controlled regarding healing benefit.

Andai Ini Kunjungan Terakhirku

 Cache   
Ini kali ketiga Yus menjejakkan kaki di Tanah Suci Mekah. Ketika KT63 mendarat di Lapangan Terbang Jeddah, air mata Yus mercik di kelopak mata. Badan terasa letih kerana penerbangan 8 jam namun dibaikan kerana hasrat untuk menunaikan haji telah tercapai.

"Alhamdulillah kita dah sampai ke bumi agong" bisik Yus kepada isterinya Ummi Syafiqah. Ummi tersenyum namun Yus berkata  " Nak genggam tangan tak bolehkan, abang telah berikhram".

Pendaratan KT63 tanpa Atiqah, Aqilah. Kalau kali pertama Yus menunaikan umrah bersama-sama dua puterinya. Kali ini kehadiran ke Mekah untuk menunaikan haji. Selama 47 hari semua anak-anak terpaksa dtinggalkan dengan lindungan Allah.

Selesai mengumpul jemaah haji, bas yang mereka bertolak dari Jedah ke Kota Mekah. Jika dicampur semua jam perjalanan, kini Yus dan jemaah lain telah lebih 13 jam bermusafir.

"Ummi, kita buat yang terbaik ya ketika di Tanah Suci nanti....." Kata Yusof sambil mengengam tangan Ummi semasa balik dari urusan dengan Tabung Haji di Kuala Lumpur. Ummi mengangguk kepala. 

"Usia kita sudah 61 tahun, harap-harap kita tak ada masalah di sana nanti ye bang," kata Ummi. 

Ketika bas tiba di hadapan hotel Jawad Al Taj, Imam di Masjidil Haram baru memberi salam. Ahh tak dapat jemaah dengan imam Subuh ini bisik hati Yusof. Jalan di depan hotel penuh dengan jemaah yang berjalan ke Masjidil Haram. Ada yang memakai ikhran ada yang tidak. Bagi Yusof pemandangan begitu tidak mengejutkan kerana sebelum ini dia sudah pernah sampai menunaikan umrah.

Tidak semua ahli rombongan yang Yusof kenal lagi. Maklumlah baru saja berkenalan sebelum ini di Kompleks Movenpick. Yang dia harus jaga ialah isterinya Ummi.

"Ingat anak-anak dan menantu ayah. Kami pergi buat haji lama. Kami akan bermusafir hampir dua bulan. Jaga diri baik-baik. Banyakkan berdoa. Jangan tinggal solat," pesan Yusof kepada anak menantunya sewaktu ucapan terakhir sebelum berangkat. Pakaian ikhram telah dipakai kemas oleh Yusof.

"Anggaplah pemergian kami seperti kembalinya kami ke Alam Barzah", Aqilah mengesat air mata. Amirah mengelap pipinya. Atiqah menelan air liur sedih. Muka Ummi merah kesedihan.

"Percayalah kami pergi melakukan ibadah. Jadi percayalah semuanya akan dilindungi Allah".

Di perkarangan Masjidil Haram begitu ramai jemaah. Musim haji memang luar biasa jumlahnya. Walaupun Yusof dan pernah datang menunaikan umrah, untuk menunaikan umrah kali ini mereka masih mengikuti ahli rombangan yang datang bersama-sama.

"Biarlah yang pertama ni kita ikut kumpulan yang ada. Tak manis terpisah," pesan Yus kepada Ummi. Ummi mengangguk kepala setuju.

"Ummi ingat lagi pintu 70?" Ummi mengangguk kepala.
"Masih ingat pintu 91?" Ummi mengangguk kepala.

Yus tersenyum. "Tengok Ummi jemaah ramai tawaf, Camkan Sudut Hajar Aswad ye. Ingat lampu hijau yang kita buat panduan masa buat umrah dulu.

Bukit Safa begitu ramai orang pagi itu. Namun semuanya kena dilalui juga untuk melengkapkan rukun Umrah pagi itu. Selepas ini mereka boleh bertahlul dan bebas pantang ikhram sebelum sampai hari melakukan haji mulai 8 Zulhijjah.

"Kenapa bang......kenapa ni," Yus berhenti di pinggir tempat mengambil Air Zam-Zam.
"Abang Hypo. Lapar. Cuba ambil air zam-zam kita minum dulu ambil tenaga.

Dua cawan Yus minum air zam-zam. Akhirnya selesai tujuh pusingan Yus dan Ummi Sai jika mengambil kira semuanya lebih dari 4 kilometer.

"Alhamdulillah selesai. Lihat dan kenangkanlah pengorbanan Siti Hajar dalam usaha mencari air kepada puteranya Ismail (nabi)" bisik Yusof sewaktu keluar dari kawasan Safa Marwah.

"Kali ini tak banyak peluang nak ambil angin kat laman masjid, orang ramai," bisik Yus kepada Ummi. "Tak macam masa kita buat umrah, banyak kawasan lapang di laman masjid" sambung Yus lagi.

Menjelang hari Wukuf, Yus dan Ummi serta rakan-rakan bakal haji tak banyak berada di luar hatel. Maklumlah suhu ada kalanya mencecah hingga 51 darjah Celcius.

Doctors held by ICE shocked by conditions at facility

 Cache   
The two men haven't met, but their stories are strikingly similar.

They grew up in Cuba, studied to become doctors and swore an oath to do no harm.

Then, years later, they ended up somewhere they never expected: a privately-run US immigrant detention center in rural Louisiana.

Held behind bars as they pleaded for asylum, these men say they watched people around them receiving poor medical care, but -- despite their years of training -- felt powerless to help.

It's a rare perspective that hasn't been heard in the US immigration debate.

These men aren't auditors paid by prison companies. They aren't government experts dropping by for occasional inspections. They aren't activists protesting conditions they haven't had a chance to see with their own eyes.

They're doctors who became immigration detainees themselves -- held for more than a year inside a system that they warn is putting people's health at risk daily. One remains detained; the other was just deported after more than 15 months behind bars.

Among their allegations, made in court filings and detailed in interviews with CNN: mold on the walls, incorrect diagnoses and improper use of quarantines.

In a statement released to CNN, the private prison company that runs the facility said it "strongly disputes" any allegations of inadequate medical care. ICE said it couldn't comment on the specific allegations due to pending litigation, but said the agency provides "comprehensive medical care" and is committed to the welfare of everyone in its custody.

The doctors' observations come amid growing concerns about illnesses and diseases spreading behind bars as ICE detains more people.

"Their perspective and their insight is extremely eye-opening," says Laura Rivera, director of the Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is representing the doctors in a class-action federal lawsuit over ICE detention and parole practices. "Here you have people who understand what it means to take an oath to do no harm. ... They're trained to evaluate and diagnose and treat, and they're seeing the failures of the system at every step of the way."

He said guards painted over mold on the walls rather than fixing the problem

It was July 2018 when a Cuban doctor arrived at the Laredo, Texas, port of entry, and told authorities he was fleeing persecution in his home country and seeking protection in the United States. Like thousands of others who arrive at the border seeking asylum, he was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody.

The moment he settled into his bunk at the Pine Prairie ICE Processing Center in Pine Prairie, Louisiana, the 31-year-old Cuban doctor says he noticed something was off. Mold grew on the wall and water dripped down onto his bed, he wrote in a sworn declaration filed in court in June. He covered part of the wall with garbage bags to keep it away from his pillow.

Still, he said, water would run down the wall and pool onto the floor.

He and fellow detainees pointed the mold out to guards, he said, and warned that the pooling water was a safety hazard. Their response: repaint the wall.

"They did nothing for two months," he wrote in his declaration. "Then they simply painted over the mold."

The doctor was recently transferred to a detention center in Alabama and deported after being held for more than a year at the Pine Prairie facility. His attorney asked CNN not to name him out of fear for his safety.

While he waited for months to learn his fate, the doctor told CNN he felt he had no choice but to speak out about what he'd witnessed in the United States -- just as he says he spoke out about unjust medical care he saw in Cuba.

"It's what I know," he said, "and it's the only way I can help."

In his June court filing, he described the conditions he observed at Pine Prairie as "unsafe, unsanitary and discriminatory."

One day, a detainee slipped and fell in a puddle made by the pooling water and broke both his arms, the doctor said in the court filing.

That's not the only injury that could result from the conditions, the doctor said. He worried that mold on the walls and poor ventilation were causing deeper medical problems that could emerge years later.

"It has become quite clear to me that our safety is not a priority of the staff here, which is deeply upsetting," he alleged in his June court filing.

ICE says it spends $260 million every year on health care for detainees

The Pine Prairie ICE Processing Center, where both doctors who spoke with CNN were detained for the majority of their time in US custody, is about 45 miles south of Alexandria, Louisiana, and about 200 miles from New Orleans.

Owned and operated by one of the nation's largest private prison companies, The GEO Group, it can house nearly 1,100 adult male detainees, and it's currently one of nearly a dozen detention facilities ICE uses in Louisiana, a growing hub for the agency in the past year.

ICE declined to respond to the specific claims the doctors made, citing the agency's policy not to comment on pending litigation. "Lack of comment should not be construed as agreement with or stipulation to any of the allegations," spokesman Bryan Cox said in an email.

ICE detainees across the US have access to physicians, nurses, mental health care providers, dental care and 24-hour emergency care, Cox said. And nationwide, he said, the agency spends more than $260 million annually on health care services for detainees.

A GEO Group spokesperson said the company disputes any allegations of inadequate medical care at its facilities.

"We recognize the majority of residents would prefer to be outside these Centers," the statement said, "but while the immigration and legal processes run their course which our company plays no role in, we are committed to protecting those entering our facilities and ensuring they are provided high-quality, culturally responsive services in safe, secure and humane environments, and are treated with compassion, dignity and respect."

GEO says detainees undergo medical, mental health and dental screenings when they arrive at Pine Prairie and are provided with 24/7 medical services. The medical program there is accredited by national organizations and "strictly complies" with ICE detention standards established under the Obama administration, according to GEO.

Pine Prairie's last annual inspection, which included experts in medical care, took place in April, Cox said. The facility was "found to be fully compliant with all 40 categories reviewed by the inspection team," he said.

Such inspections have been criticized by immigrant rights advocates and the DHS inspector general, which has noted they do little to ensure compliance with ICE's standards.

Unable to see patients, he offered to mop the infirmary floors

While playing baseball was his first love, the doctor said practicing medicine was a calling that inspired and defined him. He loved connecting with his patients and helping to heal them. Even in his spare time, he'd watch medical dramas like "ER," "Grey's Anatomy" and "House," then eagerly research the rare illnesses he'd learned about in each episode.

Even though he left his career in Cuba behind when he fled to the United States, the doctor said he mentioned his profession during his initial medical checkup when he arrived at Pine Prairie last year. He hoped he'd be able to assist them somehow -- to be a bridge between his fellow detainees and the facility's medical staff. Later, once he realized that wasn't a possibility, he asked if he could take on a different task.

"I wanted to clean the infirmary," he said. "At least I'd be more or less in my world, even though I'd be cleaning."

Instead, he said, he was given a job working in the kitchen.

It's not clear how many of the more than 50,000 people detained in ICE facilities are doctors. Those who spoke with CNN said they'd heard of other doctors being detained, but never met them.

Instead of the white coat he once wore making hospital rounds, on most days at Pine Prairie, the doctor sat in his bunk wearing a white T-shirt and orange pants. But he said fellow detainees started coming to him for help as word of his past life spread.

"Here, I am not a doctor. I cannot prescribe anything," he told CNN in a phone interview from the detention facility over the summer. "But I give them advice. I tell them, 'Go to the doctor and tell them this is what you have, and when you were sick with it another time, this is what you took.'"

He's concerned medical problems are minimized

In his court-filed declaration, the doctor detailed how he and others who've sought treatment while detained felt their concerns weren't taken seriously.

"They don't see you as a patient," he told CNN. "They see you as a prisoner."

He said this led to incorrect diagnoses, improper treatment and delays in care -- problems he believed he saw play out time and again in the more than a year he was held in ICE detention.

"If an urgent medical request is filed, it can take four or five days for officers to take the sick individual to the medical unit," the doctor said in his court declaration. "I have met individuals with many medical conditions who are not receiving the treatment they urgently need."

In the filing, the doctor described what he said was a particularly troubling example.

At one point, he wrote, a bunkmate with night sweats, skin lesions and swollen lymph nodes was only treated with Tylenol even though he was likely suffering from a serious illness.

The doctor acknowledged he didn't know what his bunkmate's final diagnosis was, but feared the man missed "months of necessary treatment."

Budgets and bottom lines seem to matter more in decisions, the doctor believes, than symptoms and sickness. He fears healing patients isn't the only priority for staff at Pine Prairie and other ICE detention facilities.

"It's to save money," he said.

Another Cuban doctor who was transferred into ICE custody after asking for asylum at the border told CNN he's had a similar experience while he's been detained, advising fellow detainees as medical problems come up. That doctor, who said he fears persecution in Cuba and asked to be identified only by his initials, P.S.P., described what he said in a June court filing were "foul conditions" at Pine Prairie. He spent months there and was transferred to a different facility in Mississippi over the summer.

"It's been very, very difficult and draining to be here, seeing people keep getting deported," he says.

P.S.P. hopes to study medicine again in the United States and embark on a new career here. But he's worried he won't get the chance.

"I have lost myself since being in detention," he said in a court filing this year. "I may never be able to practice medicine again."

They question whether quarantines were handled properly

Inspectors noted in April that a mumps outbreak at Pine Prairie had required quarantining more than 500 detainees there.

The first doctor who spoke with CNN said he was one of them. A quarantine forced him to miss a court date and made it harder to meet with his lawyer, he says in his court declaration. But, he said at the time, no one around him showed any sign of the illness.

"As a doctor, I know how to recognize the symptoms of mumps, and I never saw a single person in my bunk with mumps while we were quarantined," he wrote in his court declaration.

Another time when he and several others did have symptoms of the disease, he said, they weren't diagnosed with it or placed in quarantine.

"I think it is highly unjust for doctors to review patients and fail to provide them with an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment," he said in his court declaration. "It seems to me like the jail only uses quarantines when it is convenient for them."

P.S.P. also says he saw multiple mumps quarantines during his time in detention.

"Often, the prison officials use illness as a weapon to punish all the inmates, by placing us under quarantine, which is very similar to isolation," he said in his court declaration.

ICE said thousands of detainees across the country were quarantined for exposure to mumps or chicken pox over the summer. And in August, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its first report on mumps outbreaks in detention facilities, noting that nearly 900 adults held in immigrant detention facilities had contracted the contagious disease in the past year.

In June, an ICE official told CNN that the agency had successfully prevented communicable diseases from spreading in the past, but added that the recent wave of quarantines would likely lead to increased time in detention and delays in deportations.

They sued over ICE's parole practices

Both doctors are plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against ICE earlier this year.

But medical care in custody wasn't the focus of that class-action case, which was filed by the SPLC and the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana and has nearly a dozen plaintiffs.

The federal suit alleges that ICE officials in the agency's New Orleans district -- which covers Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee -- have been violating their own policies and issuing blanket denials of parole to asylum seekers who could qualify for release.

Government attorneys denied that accusation and asked a judge to dismiss the case.

A judge ruled in the plaintiffs' favor last month, issuing a preliminary injunction ordering ICE to follow its policies and weigh each parole request individually.

The case is still pending, and attorneys are sorting out the next steps.

Meanwhile, the doctors' descriptions of mold, quarantines and medical care are just a few paragraphs in a growing stack of legal filings.

Why mention such matters in this lawsuit at all?

The doctor who was recently deported said the oath he swore to uphold was still guiding him.

"It's what I know -- medicine. And it's the only way I can help, by denouncing the bad treatment of people and the bad medical attention. I denounced it in my own country. And I came here and denounced it, too," he told CNN in a phone interview from Pine Prairie, weeks before his deportation.

"We are talking about human lives. It is more important than parole. It's more important than all of this, that lives are not lost."

    Angola: UNICEF Angola Humanitarian Situation Report July to September, Quarter 3 2019

     Cache   
    Source: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo

    Highlights

    • According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) conducted in July 2019, more than 421,000 people are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) or 4 (Emergency) food insecure in the 23 communes from three provinces surveyed. The number is expected to rise to 562,000 from October 2019 to February 2020.

    • UNICEF and partners screened 107,920 children under the age of five for acute malnutrition.

    • Angola has been facing several circulating Vaccine-Derived Polio type-2 Virus (cVDPV) outbreaks since May 2019. Through C4D campaigns and community engagement, UNICEF has reached 650,000 people with key messages on polio vaccination and prevention in seven provinces of Angola.

    • The UNICEF Angola Humanitarian Action for Children (HAC) appeal is underfunded by 54.5 per cent, significantly impacting the ability to achieve results for children.

    SITUATION IN NUMBERS

    421,174 People projected to be IPC levels 3 or 4 from October 2019 to February 2020 and in need of urgent assistance in the 23 communes assessed in Cuando Cubango, Cunene and Huila

    380,494 Children under 5 years old in humanitarian situations to be screened for malnutrition

    54,733 People reached with access to safe water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene

    25,000 Children to be reached through access to formal and non-formal primary education

    650,000 People reached with life-saving and behaviour changes on health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene practices

    Situation Overview and Humanitarian Needs

    In most parts of southern Angola, the rains have failed for the last eight months with less than 50 millimetres of rain recorded during this period. More than 421,000 people are currently food insecure6 in the 23 communes surveyed through the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) conducted last July. This number is projected to increase to nearly 562,000 by February 2020, with 50 per cent of communes classified as experiencing crisis levels of food insecurity.Latest evidences from community and facility-based MUAC screenings points out to a global acute malnutrition proxy-prevalence of 9.8 per cent and 5.6 per cent of severe acute malnutrition. Affected populations have seen their livelihoods deteriorate significantly, and already fragile livelihoods are expected to worsen in the coming months due to poor harvests and limited food access during the lean season, with seven provinces currently considered the most affected by drought and most nutritionally vulnerable, namely Cunene, Huila, Namibe, Bie, Benguela, Cuanza Sul, and Cuando Cubango.

    Across the country, there are reports of loss of livestock and family assets, increasing water scarcity, sharp rises in food prices in local markets, drops in school attendance, school closures, increasing child protection risks and health emergencies6 (including measles, polio and scabies outbreaks). Angola has been facing several circulating Vaccine-Derived Polio type-2 Virus (cVDPV) outbreaks since May 2019, the first of which was in the Lunda Norte Province (Cambulo district) bordering Kasai Province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where cVDPV2 is also circulating in Kamonia District. As of 12 October 2019, a total of 18 cases have been confirmed in seven provinces, potentially affecting 2.3 million children under five in 60 municipalities. In the education sector, the Provincial Education Directorate in Cunene estimates that 614 out of 887 primary schools in the province are affected by the drought, negatively impacting the ability of approximately 150,000 children to regularly access quality education. In addition, the 5,000 refugees7 staying in Lunda Norte following the spontaneous and voluntary repatriation will continue to require sustained support.

    The statement of the 23rd Annual Southern Africa Regional Climate Outlook Forum (SARCOF) indicates for the period from October to December 2019 there will be normal to above normal rains throughout most of Angola, with the exception of the north-western half of the country, where normal to below normal rains are expected. For the period from January to March 2020, Angola is expected to receive normal to above normal rainfall, except the south-western part of the country, which is likely to receive normal to below normal rains. Based on the forecasted rainfall for the two periods, the northwestern half and south-western regions of Angola will likely be hotspots for continued humanitarian response associated with drought and insufficient rainfall.


              

    Angola: Chevron donates over 22 tons of food

     Cache   
    Source: Government of Angola
    Country: Angola

    The goods include sugar, beans, corn meal, salt, pasta, used clothing, shoes and materials for agriculture.

    The drought affects more than 35.000 people, who make up more than 75.000 families spread in nine municipalities, with greater incidence in the regions of Cuangar, Dirico and Calai, bordering Namibia.

    Chevron Chief Operating Officer, Dele Nani, told reporters that the act of solidarity is part of the program to support drought victims in the southern provinces of Angola.

    The aim is to minimize problems of access to drinking water and food shortages.

    The official announced that the oil company foresees, in its portfolio for the current year, the construction of three drinking water systems to benefit the community and the animals.

    Cuando Cubango Governor Júlio Bessa stressed the company's willingness to sympathize with drought victims as well as to support social projects, helping the Government achieve economic growth to reduce poverty within families.

    At the end of the activity, Chevron hosted a celebration lunch with 39 children from the Padre João Bosco reception center, where they also delivered food.

    The center can accommodate 100 vulnerable people, but due to the high degree of difficulties it faces, especially in the lack of food, it only serves 39 children and adults.

    The Mbembwa Center is an institution designed to accommodate orphans, abandoned and in conflict with the law.

    Turning Trump's Victory into Defeat

     Cache   

    In a better world the news would have emphasized the fact that the United States had murdered the leader of the Islamic State, the world’s most important terrorist, a mass murderer and torturer. And yet, to do so would have required the media and the Obamaphile left to praise President Trump. And we can’t have that.

    It has been a thoroughly astonishing spectacle. From Saturday Night Live running a skit showing how Trump was coddling ISIS at the precise moment that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was blowing himself and three of his children up to the Washington Post being incapable of writing a correct headline.

    The Post, the paper of record in Washington D. C. first headlined the story by calling al-Baghdadi a “terrorist in chief.” Then, someone decided that that would give Trump too much credit, so it changed the description to “an austere religious scholar.” Considering that the man was responsible for mass murder, mayhem, gang rape and sex trafficking, it seemed a bit too weak, even for the Post. It immediately provoked an outcry from Post readers. The paper changed the headline to “extremist leader.”

    At the least, it does not inspire confidence in their journalism.

    And then, at the World Series game last night in Washington, President Trump was roundly booed by Nationals fans. Obviously, these fans live in a deep blue city. Even the Washington suburbs are deeply blue… meaning that they are inhabited by government employees, thus, the kind of people that Trump has been attacking and that have, truth be told, been attacking Trump.

    It is a pathetic spectacle, not a sign of patriotism. When you boo the president you boo the presidency. And it does not spell patriotism.

    So, leftist politicians and media mavens started spinning as fast as they could. They said it was no big deal. ISIS is not defeated. Trump’s press conference was largely inferior to that of Obama when Osama bin Laden was killed. Trump lied about al Baghdadi’s whimpering. And besides, the credit all belongs to Barack Obama, who began the fight against the Islamic State.

    You need to wonder how people are stupid enough to believe any of this, but apparently they are. Otherwise why would anyone overlook the obvious fact that the Islamic State was part of the Obama legacy?

    Before Obama there was no caliphate. During the Obama years a caliphate grew and became more powerful. Its ability to show itself powerful in the face of the weak Obama policy attracted adherents from around the world. When Obama left office there was still a functioning caliphate. President Trump defeated the caliphate, captured large numbers of ISIS fighters, and ultimately, as of yesterday, eliminated the organization’s chief.

    If you put that together and decide that Obama deserves credit for the death of al-Baghdadi you should go back on your meds.

    And yet, James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence said this on CNN:

    What is going to be interesting is to the extent to which this negatively affects ISIS or does it galvanize ISIS, the remnants of ISIS, which still survives as an ideology and has franchises in other places besides Syria.

    Since Trump might be credited with launching the raid, we are now told that ISIS is really an idea, that it exists elsewhere and that the death of its leader will embolden it. Was this what they said when the Obama administration killed bin Laden?

    Or else, read Matt Stieb, in New York Magazine. He first needs to attack Trump, with mockery and ridicule:

    The president, who appears to relish violet rhetoric, personal boasting, the defeat of his enemies, and the simplicity of a good vs. evil narrative, announced on Sunday morning that U.S. special forces had killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a raid in northwestern Syria on Saturday. With such a natural lining up of his interests, Trump turned the event into a spectacle, even promoting the press conference on Twitter the night before.

    Anytime President Trump speaks for 48 minutes straight, you can expect some pretty unhinged remarks; on Sunday, things started to get weird just 90 seconds in, when Trump described the ISIS leader “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way” to the back of a tunnel in his compound, where he detonated a suicide vest as he was surrounded by three of his children. The president, who did little to hide his enjoyment in the moment, said that “it was just like a movie.”

    For those who have no faith in CNN, I will add that a commentator on that network, someone whose name escapes me, explained that Trump had done a great job detailing the raid to the public. The unnamed commentator thanked Trump for describing what happened so well that he and journalists would not need to spend weeks figuring itout for themselves.

    Anyway, Stieb seems vaguely offended that Trump was dehumanizing al-Baghdadi:

    Trump aim seemed to be dehumanizing al-Baghdadi, the terrorist responsible for the Yazidi genocide, systemized sex slavery within ISIS-controlled territory, and the deaths of thousands in the region. “He was a gutless animal,” Trump said, later adding that “he died in a vicious and violent way, as a coward, running and crying.” He employed one of his frequent, if incoherent, jabs at al-Baghdadi, claiming that he “died like a dog.” In a bizarre piece of symmetry, as Trump degraded the terrorist, he elevated a military canine involved in the raid: “Our K-9, as they call it — I call it a dog, a beautiful dog, a talented dog — was injured and brought back, but we had no soldier injured … We had nobody even hurt. That’s why the dog was so great.”

    Tell me that that is not one of the most bizarre paragraphs you have ever had the misfortune to read. Stieb seems to suggest that there is something wrong with dehumanizing a mass murderer, a genocidal maniac, an inveterate homophobe and promoter of gang rapes and sex trafficking. Does he not understand that the propaganda war against ISIS is best advanced by showing its leader to be a sniveling coward? Apparently not.

    The raid was named in honor of one Kayla Mueller, a young American woman who was captured by ISIS and who was raped repeatedly by al-Baghdadi himself for months on end… before being killed by an American missile. (via Maggie's Farm) Mueller’s parents did not have as many reservations as the American leftist media.

    And then Thomas Friedman, in a column praising Trump, tries to argue that Obama got it right, that ISIS was produced by the Bush administration—you know, after Obama abandoned Iraq and Syria. And then, he dives into the moral equivalence trap and compares al-Baghdadi to Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sissi:

    Trump has never met a dictator he did not like. He is blind to the fact that the next al-Baghdadi is being incubated today in some prison in Egypt, where President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt, whom Trump once actually called “my favorite dictator,’’ is not only rounding up violent Jihadists but liberal nonviolent journalists, activists and politicians. Their only crime is that they want to have a say in their country’s future and help to create an environment where they can realize their full potential — so they will not have to look for dignity, power, a job or a girl’s hand from extremist groups like ISIS.

    True enough, el Sissi has been cracking down on dissent. You will recall that Egyptian dissidents are most often members of the Muslim Brotherhood or other terrorist organizations.  These have done their best to produce mayhem in the country. The Brotherhood is the godfather of Islamist terrorist organizations. If you know the difference between the Brothers and supposedly liberal journalists I will agree that we should distinguish the one from the other.

    We might add that when a Brotherhood leader named Mohamed Morsi won the presidency of Egypt—before being overthrown by a coup lead by el-Sissi— the first  foreign leader to bless his victory with her presence was no less than America’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. 

    No one likes to mention it, but Brotherhood voter outreach contained active support for female genital mutilation. Before the election it was sending mobile infirmary vans into the poor neighborhoods of Cairo, the better to allow families to have their daughters mutilated without needing to undergo the indignity of having to go to a clinic or hospital.

    Friedman neglects this point. He argues that pro-Iran militias and Syria conspired to help Trump to eliminate al-Baghdadi because they wanted to rid their nation of Sunni influence. He might have added that Sunni Turkey contributed too.

    Friedman is sorely offended by the Trump administration’s wish to protect the oil wells, instead of protecting what he called “islands of decency.” A noble thought, offered by a man of surpassing virtue. And yet, where was he when Obama was selling out to Iran and to Islamist terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas? Was the Iran nuclear deal a way to foster decency? And where was Friedman and where was the Obama administration when the Iranian regime was shooting protesters in the streets during the Green revolution of 2009?

    Companies like Google and Microsoft are making big investments in startups looking to disrupt healthcare. Here's where 5 top tech giants are placing their bets.

    Google CEO Sundar Pichai

    Tech giants like Google's parent company Alphabet and Microsoft have taken their time figuring out how to approach the massive $3.5 trillion US healthcare industry. 

    But the big tech players haven't been shy about investing in companies looking to disrupt healthcare. Their investments hint at how the tech giants could ultimately succeed in healthcare. 

    In October, CB Insights pulled together a report analyzing the investments tech companies had made in digital health startups looking at the last five years. In particular, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Chinese tech giant Tencent accounted for about 70% of the deals, the report found. 

    Read more: Tech giants like Google and Amazon are beefing up their healthcare strategies. Here's how 7 tech titans plan to tackle the $3.5 trillion industry.

    The report highlights that most of the deals have been in data management and analytics, with 40 deals in the space. That finding isn't surprising for He Wang, a healthcare analyst at CB Insights. 

    "A common thread across all ten companies is data. Every tech company is leveraging some sort of data in all verticals they're going after, and that's no different in healthcare," Wang told Business Insider. "They're playing to their strengths and that's reflected in their investments." 

    Here are the top 5 companies with the most investments in digital health and where they're placing their bets, from fewest investments to most, as determined by the CB Insights report. 

    Samsung - 15 companies

    Samsung is primarily focused on chronic disease management. 

    The South Korean company, known for Galaxy phones and headsets, wants to expand into wearables and other tech monitoring systems that can track peoples' health. In total, it's invested in 15 companies. 

    Samsung bought Neurologica, a medical imaging company and the US healthcare equipment maker, Nexus

    "Samsung essentially wants to help people manage their health, using their wide adoption of hardware to distribute software that has healthcare applications," Wang said.  

     



    Intel - 16 companies

    A big area of focus for Intel is AI or machine learning in medical imaging, drug discovery and drug diagnostics, Wang said. In total, Intel has made investments in 16 digital health companies, according to the report. 

    This can be seen with its investment of $30 million in startups working on cloud computing software innovation. The company, along with Microsoft, invested in CognitiveScale, a data analytics product for healthcare providers like hospital systems. 

    Wang noted that Intel's healthcare investments align with the company's broader investments in AI across all verticals.  

    "Intel is one of the most technologically advanced companies. They're still a worldwide provider of chips," Wang said. "So at the end of the day they're just trying to make a broader market place with chips." 



    Tencent - 40 companies

    Tencent has also been prolific in its dealmaking, investing in 40 companies. 

    When delving into healthcare, the company is drawing on two main company strengths.

    The first is Tencent's data on its users. The company has some of the most-used messaging apps and software, with over one billion active users on the company's WeChat platform alone. With this vast user base, Tencent is leveraging this asset to help it monetize and make investments, Wang said. 

    The second asset is its investment in medical content marketing, allowing Tencent to analyze what users want in healthcare. An example of this an investment in SoYoung, the China-based medical aesthetic company which went public in the US earlier this year. 



    Microsoft - 42 companies

    As the second-most-active investor on the list, Microsoft made 42 investments in the space. But the company has a different approach than Google. Unlike Google, the majority of Microsoft's investments come from its accelerator and incubator programs.

    These programs have actively worked with digital health companies at the earliest stage of investment, for startups like SWORD Health, Genoox, KenSci and SigTuple

    "Microsoft is playing a little bit of a catch up in terms of services for cloud providers," Wang said. "They're using this incubator to build on this digital health startup ecosystem, to not only impact some of the most interesting companies out there but to also market or encourage people to use for their cloud computing capabilities." 

    But Microsoft also has a long term strategy with its venture arm, M12, which invests in bigger startups, such as the chronic disease management company Livongo Health

    The majority of its investments since 2016 have been in data management and analytics, and genomics companies. 

    "Microsoft has made it very clear that cloud is the most important strategy they're going after," Wang said.  

     



    Alphabet - 57 companies

    Alphabet is the biggest and most active investor in the healthcare space. Google parent company Alphabet has backed 57 companies, making 70% of its health investments through corporate funds like Google Ventures, CapitalG, and Gradient Ventures. 

    Google's accelerator and incubator programs have invested in 17 digital health companies primarily in genomics, clinical research, insurance and benefits. 

    When it comes to genomics, Google's venture arm GV has invested in companies like 23andMe, Foundation Medicine, and Flatiron Health, while Alphabet's life sciences arm Verily has invested in Freenome.

    The companies have collected clinical and genetic data, with the hope of finding new ways to use that information and keep people healthier. Google doesn't have access to the data these companies collect, but can draw insights from how the companies approach working with large amounts of information.

    "They can use that data and tie it into advanced technology to drive better drug delivery, or diagnostics," Wang said. "Google is focused on healthcare data assets and how to use advanced technology to drive insights from there." 

    Google has also invested in some of the biggest health insurance startups like Oscar Health and Clover Health, which collect information on how people use and navigate the healthcare system.

    Buenassss - A mí, Bill Gates me cae de la patada. Porque no me gustan ni el Excel, ni el Explorer, ni el Windows, y porque mi chico el genio, estuvo trabajando en Microsoft, en Seattle , y no me gustó nada la estructura piramidal de aquello, que se comprende en otro tipo de empresa, pero no en un sitio con tal cantidad de genios geek por metro cuadrado. Y a esos genios geek, hay que dejarles cuerda larga , que si tienen por encima a un burócrata empeñado en seguir y hacer seguir a todos por el camino marcado, no me vale. Y conste que mi chico se marchó de la empresa porque se dió cuenta de que su padre no iba a aguantar otro viajecito de 36 horas de Madrid a Seattle para ir a verle, y se volvió a Europa con una pinza en la nariz. En cambio Jobs y Wozzniak nunca me han dejado tirada. Y llevo con Mac, desde hace ni se sabe. Y Jobs no iba de salvar al mundo, que lo que más le importaba era la buena letra. - En cuanto a los libros ; Cuando salgo de casa, además de mi bolso de los de los antiguos carteros, que me hace una amiga guarnicionera, y que pesa un quintal, no sólo por el cuero de vaca del que está hecho, sino por el manojo de llaves, los tres pares de gafas, el móvil, la agenda, la chequera, la cartera , las gotas para los ojos y para la nariz, la lima de uñas, el monedero, los distintos bolígrafos y rotuladores, los pañuelos, las pastillas contra la tos, un metro extensible, y varios etcéteras, Todo eso aparte , pues, voy siempre cargada, con una talega con asas largas, de tela de tapizar hecha por mí, también en bandolera. Y dentro, además de las carpetas con lo que tenga pendiente para ese día ( escrituras, contratos, presupuestos, facturas... ) llevo siempre un libro. Procuro llevar uno que no pese mucho, y que se pueda leer a poquitos, mientras me hacen esperar en el notario, en la Junta Municipal, en Hacienda, en el Registro , en todas partes. Con un libro , las esperas , que odio, se hacen mucho más soportables. Sobre todo desde que me he hecho con un bastón, y me dejan sentarme en todas partes ( en algunos organismos oficiales, incluso me han llegado a sacar sillas de las de sus cubículos para que no estuviese de pié). Lo de llevar más de un libro , eso es más bien para los jóvenes .

    Dulu, isu ini pernah berbangkit dan dulu juga rasanya untuk menjaga kulit muka lebih kepada produk krim muka, rasanya serum tu tak berapa nak wujud lagi kan. Zaman sekarang banyak pelbagai jenama serum pulak.

    Zaman yang penuh timbulnya pelbagai jenama krim muka di pasaran. Dan diri sendiri pun salah seorang mangsa jugak, Ingat masa zaman belajar dulu, ada junior terkeluar terus cakap kenapa kulit akak macam sisik ular, haaa ambik kau, sekali cakap tak bertapis dah.

    9 Ciri - Ciri Krim Muka Yang Mengandungi Merkuri 

    1) Melekit
    Apabila sapu di muka susah nak serap. Sis pernah tengok krim yang melekit sangat. Masa tu memang tak tahu tentang ciri - ciri krim muka yang mengandungi merkuri ni. Ada sesetengah krim dicampurkan dengan bedak sejuk supaya nampak lebih cair dan tidak melekit.

    2) Tidak Homogen
    Kalau kita biarkan krim tu, akan nampak lapisan minyak terpisah dari lapisan yang padat.

    3) Kulit Putih Segera
    Pakai banyak merkuri memanglah laju je kulit putih ya. Putihnya lain macam, nampak putih pucat. Macam pelik kalau kulit berubah dalam waktu yang singkat kan.

    4) Jerawat Susah Nak Tumbuh
    Tidak dinafikan siapa yang tak nak muka naik jerawat. Tapi jangan terpedaya juga dengan krim muka yang jenis tak naik jerawat langsung. Ya lah orang perempuan mudah sangant terpengaruh. Jangan cepat gembira bila ini terjadi. Sebenarnya, kulit epidermis (lapisan kulit yang paling atas sekali) dah rosak. Kulit dah rosak tu dah hilang protein dan melanin yang sangat penting untuk melindungi kulit dari sinar uv.

    5) Bau Logam
    Merkuri ialah logam berat yang berbentuk cecair. So bau logam bau dia kuat menyengat, kalau wangi pun mungkin dah dicampur dengan perfume (pewangi).

    6) Warna Kebiasaannya Berwarna Putih Kuning
    Krim siang kuning, krim malam putih. Tapi tak semua lah produk nak cakap ada merkuri, tapi wajib diragui.

    7) Berkilau Blink - Blink 
    Tekstur kosmetik yang ada merkuri ni berkilau - kilau, kilat - kilat sikit. Cuba tengok kat kulit lepas pakai tu ada tak kilat - kilat. Ingat ya merkuri adalah logam sebab tu ia berkilat.

    8) Muka Breakout Bila Stop Pakai
    Biasa kita terdengar kes, kalau stop pakai mula lah macam tak kena muka ni. Bintik - bintik tumbuh kat muka dan gatal-gatal. Lama - lama kulit jadi kehitaman dan kusam lebih teruk daripada sebelumnya. Nak jaga kulit muka ingat nak bajet pakai apa pun tak apa, asalkan jadi kulit putih mulus, tapi tak tahu kandungan bahan apa dalam krim muka. Itu lah padahnya.

    9) Kulit Sensitif Terhadap Matahari
    Apabila kena matahari sekejap pun dah merah dan rasa terbakar.

    Bahayanya Kesan Merkuri Pada Tubuh Manusia 

    Merkuri adalah bahan yang selalu jumpa dalam produk krim muka. Kenapa merkuri dilarang untuk produk kosmetik ? Ini disebabkan kandungan merkuri dalam krim muka boleh memudarakan kesihatan. Tahu tak korang yang keracunan merkuri boleh menyebabkan risiko seperti di bawah :

    1. Kelemahan otot
    2. Koordinasi lemah
    3. Rasa kebas pada tangan dan kaki
    4. Ruam kulit
    5. Masalah deria
    6. Boleh menyerap masuk ke dalam badan dan menyebabkan kerosakan pada buah pinggang
    7. Buat ibu yang mengandung, ia boleh menganggu perkembangan otak kanak - kanak yang masih kecil atau yang belum dilahirkan.

    Sekiranya tidak berhenti dari memakai produk krim muka yang ada merkuri ini, mungkin risiko penyakit lain pula yang timbul. Takut tak ? Jangan ambil ringan dengan krim muka yang ada merkuri ni.

    Sis pun tertanya - tanya masih ada lagi ke sekarang yang pakai krim muka, Trending sekarang dalam produk kosmetik macam dah  serum yang menguasai. Ada lagi ke ? Sis tanya ni. Yang penting, sebelum membeli apa - apa produk skincare, pastikan korang survey, dan pastikan produk tersebut berdaftar di bawah KKM ( Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia ) atau tidak.

    Akibat mengguna kabel pengecas terkoyak, remaja Thailand maut direnjat elektrik ketika mengecas telefon pintar

     Cache   

    CHAIYAPHUM – Seorang remaja perempuan didapati maut setelah terkena renjatan elektrik dipercayai berpunca daripada penggunaan kabel pengecas telefon bimbit yang sudah terkoyak dan menyentuhi kaki katil besinya.

    Mangsa, Nong Ying yang berusia 17 tahun itu didakwa sedang bermain dengan peranti pintarnya itu semasa ia dicas menggunakan kabel yang telah dibalut dengan pita pelekat ekoran pembalutnya sudah terkoyak.

    Kejadian itu disedari ketika ibu mangsa, Boonpeng Tuponchai yang berusia 47 tahun, menemui mangsa terbaring di atas katilnya sebaik sahaja dia pulang ke rumah mereka yang terletak di Chaiyaphum.

    “Saya fikir anak saya sedang tidur sebelum cuba mengejutnya. Namun, apabila menyentuh sahaja tubuhnya, saya juga mengalami sedikit kejutan elektrik”, jelasnya.

    Dia kemudian dengan pantas cuba menutup suis elektrik yang digunakan itu akan tetapi mangsa tidak dapat diselamatkan lagi.

    Hasil pemeriksaan, mangsa didapati mengalami kesan lecur pada tangan kirinya, yang dipercayai digunakan untuk memegang telefon pintarnya itu.

    Menurut pegawai penyiasat, Kapten Khanti Peansoongnern, punca renjatan tersebut berlaku adalah disebabkan oleh kabel lama yang telah terkoyak dan sudah dibalut beberapa kali.

    “Saya beranggapan bahawa kabel lama itu sudah pun bocor dan menyebabkan renjatan apabila bersentuhan dengan tanah ataupun besi”, katanya.

    Menurutnya, gadis terbabit secara tidak sengaja menyentuh katilnya yang diperbuat daripada besi dan terkena kejutan elektrik. “Namun kita perlu mengumpul bukti dan menjalankan bedah siasat bagi mengesahkan kematiannya”, akhiri Khanti.

    Tidak sengaja menukarkan warna baju isteri, lelaki meminta bantuan warga Twitter untuk kembalikan warna asal

     Cache   

    Mungkin antara kita sudah sedia maklum bahawa apa-apa pakaian berwarna putih hendaklah diasingkan ketika hendak membasuhnya supaya warna lain tidak luntur padanya.

    Namun bagi mereka yang tidak maklum akan perkara ini pasti tidak tahu akan akibat membasuh pakaian berwarna putih bersama pakaian berwarna lain.

    Satu kisah yang memberi pengajaran kepada kita semua ini telah dikongsi oleh seorang pengguna Twitter, @AdliAmirullah.

    Menurut Adli, dia secara tidak sengaja membasuh baju baharu isterinya yang berwarna putih bersama baju baharu berwarna merah. Akibatnya baju baharu berwarna putih tersebut telah bertukar warna menjadi merah jambu.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Kata Adli lagi, apa yang menyedihkan ialah isterinya sengaja membeli baju baharu berwarna putih itu kerana dia tidak pernah memilikinya sebelum ini.

    Kalut dengan apa yang telah terjadi, Adli tidak memberitahu isterinya tentang perkara itu malah cuba mencari solusi terlebih dahulu. Dia juga ada berfikir mahu menyembunyikan baju yang telah bertukar warna itu dan membeli baju yang sama dari kedai.

    Lebih 9 ribu netizen telah memberi tindak balas akan perkara tersebut dengan memberikan pelbagai idea dan cadangan kepada Adli untuk menyelesaikan masalah itu.

    Antaranya ialah rendam baju tersebut menggunakan sabun champaca, basuh baju tersebut dengan lemon, baking soda dan air panas, sabun mandi buku dan macam-macam lagi.

    Adli cuba merendam baju tersebut dengan menggunakan clorox dan sabun dengan harapan warna merah jambu itu akan luntur dan mengembalikan warna asal baju tersebut namun tidak berhasil. Adli benar-benar buntu dan akhirnya mengambil keputusan untuk membeli baju baharu berwarna putih di pasaraya.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Adli terus bergerak ke pasaraya di mana isterinya membeli baju putih tersebut. Dia menyangka baju tersebut dibeli oleh isterinya di Padini namun tidak ditemui di sana

    Adli semakin resah lalu berjalan di seluruh pasaraya untuk mencari kedai yang mana ada menjual baju putih tersebut.

    Nasib menyebelahi Adli apabila dia terjumpa baju putih yang terakhir di sebuah booth pakaian. Adli berasa sangat bersyukur kerana masalahnya kini sudah selesai.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Selepas menyelesaikan misi mencari baju putih baharu, Adli berterus terang dengan isterinya tentang apa yang telah terjadi. Sangkanya isterinya akan marah atau merajuk tentang perkara tersebut tetapi lain pula yang jadi. Menurut Adli, isterinya merajuk kerana Adli tidak membawanya bersama ke pasaraya.

    Kisah Adli ini telah di-retweet sebanyak 9 ribu kali dan mendapat 7200 tanda suka. Walaupun Adli bersungguh-sungguh mahu 'menyelamatkan' keadaan tetapi plot twist selepas dia berterus terang dengan isterinya.

    Namun begitu usaha Adli untuk tidak mengecewakan isterinya memang patut dipuji. Adli sememangnya seorang suami yang baik hati dan bertanggungjawab.

    Presidente Maduro en Encuentro Antiimperialista: Se ha levantado una nueva ola antineoliberal en América Latina

     Cache   

     

    Caracas, 04-11-2019-. “Después de esta férrea resistencia que hemos tenido en América Latina, el Caribe y el mundo, hoy, sin lugar a dudas a finales del 2019, podemos decir que empieza a configurarse una nueva situación geopolítica en la región, y ya visualizamos que se ha levantado una nueva ola antineoliberal que tendrá los espacios del futuro para una nueva situación de alternativas”.

     

    Así lo declaró este domingo el presidente Constitucional de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, a más de 1.500 delegados del mundo durante su participación en la sesión de clausura del Encuentro Antimperialista de Solidaridad por la Democracia y Contra el Neoliberalismo, que se realizó en La Habana, Cuba, durante tres días.

     

    Ofreció un completo análisis histórico de las agresiones políticas y económicas que desde la década de 1990 el régimen imperial de Estados Unidos (EE.UU.) registró contra los pueblos. En este sentido, recordó que fue Fidel Castro el primer estadista que alertó a los pueblos sobre el peligro del Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

     

    “Fue Cuba la que convocó al mundo a debatir y desenmascarar los mecanismos financieros, culturales y políticos de dominación”, expresó al hacer referencia a las trágicas consecuencias de la penetración del FMI al imponer el dañino modelo del pensamiento único capitalista e imperial a través de las mal llamadas “deudas externas”.

     

    Refirió además que existen actualmente tres grandes frentes progresistas que se levantan en la región. El primero de ellos es la Alianza Bolivariana de los Pueblos de América – Tratado de Comercio de los Pueblos (ALBA-TCP), conformado por Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Venezuela y las naciones de El Caribe, que han demostrado una resistencia heroica ante las presiones y pretensiones imperiales.

     

    El segundo frente está “brillantemente encabezado por dos líderes”. Indicó que se trata de Manuel López Obrador, presidente de México, y Alberto Fernández, recientemente electo mandatario de Argentina, en conjunto con el gobierno de Uruguay.

     

    Y el tercer frente es la resistencia de los pueblos a través de los movimientos sociales que reclaman en este momento los derechos sociales que los gobiernos de derecha intentan anular con el FMI. “Movimientos populares que están en las calles de  Chile, Brasil, Colombia, que irán abriendo caminos, cada quién en sus países”.

     

    Advirtió, no obstante, que la campaña mediática de la oligarquía mundial capitalista pretende silenciar estas protestas, y desviar las verdaderas causas que originan la indignación popular.

     

    “El gobierno de EE.UU., estúpido como es y los imbéciles de la derecha que gobiernan en algunos países, dicen que lo que está pasando es culpa del Foro de Sao Paolo, de Venezuela y Cuba. No, son Pinochet, y el FMI los culpables. Y los pueblos tienen derecho a la rebelión y búsqueda de alternativas”, respondió en forma contundente.

     

    “Un frente de avanzada antineoliberal. ¡Así lo veo yo!. Un frente progresista en la nueva unión de la América Latina y El Caribe”, sentenció en el Palacio de Convenciones de La Habana.

     

    Pidió que estos tres frentes en el continente sean articulados para acercarse en el discurso y en la acción, y lograr romper las barreras y las campañas de la gran prensa derechista que trata de dividir las fuerzas antineoliberales.

     

    “Hace falta dosis de valentía para defender la verdad y abrir caminos a la verdad”, insistió a los movimientos sociales y gobiernos progresistas en este nuevo tiempo geopolítico, para unir los procesos revolucionarios, que es un mandato del libertador Simón Bolívar y el prócer cubano José Martí.

     

    “Así que hace falta tomar esos caminos de la valentía y atrevernos a derrumbar mitos, campañas, presiones, chantajes y mentiras del imperio”.

     

    Finalizó su discurso augurando un momento esplendoroso en esta nueva etapa contra las agresiones imperiales y las corrientes neoliberales que tratan por todos los medios de arrodillar a los pueblos y quitarles sus conquistas y derechos sociales.

     

    “Buenos y mejores tiempos, nuevos y mejores aires hay en América Latina, el Caribe y el mundo. Tengamos fe y optimismo que ha llegado el tiempo histórico de las ideas antineoliberales. Tengamos la unión suficiente y la fuerza espiritual suficiente para seguir empujando adelante. ¡Es nuestro tiempo, nuestro siglo y nadie nos lo quitará!”, concluyó.

    Ocean loving audiences will be able to immerse themselves in the wonders of the ocean without getting their feet wet as the Ocean Film Festival World Tour makes a splash in theatres and cinemas across the country. The festival, which features a carefully curated selection of the world’s most captivating ocean-themed will light up the screen at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 4 and 7 p.m., presented by the Sedona International Film Festival.

    Designed to mesmerize and captivate, the Ocean Film Festival World Tour showcases sublime footage taken above and below the water’s surface.  The films document the beauty and power of the ocean, and celebrate the divers, surfers, swimmers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray; who chase the crests of waves; and who marvel at the mysteries of the big blue.

    Heart-stopping shots of surfers riding wild waves and adrenaline-inducing scenes of divers swimming with white sharks will leave audiences on the edges of their seats. Viewers will gasp for breath as they follow the stunning marine life in Patagonia and the Artic and embark on a record-breaking voyage.

    The Ocean Film Festival World Tour will feature the following films:

    EMOCEAN
    A love letter to the ocean from surfers, fishermen, marine scientists and people with a shared passion for the sea and how it makes them feel.  This stunning film is a documentary with soul; a salty blend of stories by the eclectic assortment of people sharing tales of adventure, adrenaline, inspiration, love, loss and their relationship with the ocean.  

    PEACE WITHIN
    Extreme artist Philip Gray was has travelled far and wide to places like Mount Everest, Antarctica and deep into the Borneo Rainforest to capture what he sees on canvas. In what is quite possibly one of his most ambitious projects Gray heads to Quintana Roo in Mexico with the aim of capturing the Cenotes by painting underwater.

    MANRY AT SEA: IN THE WAKE OF A DREAM
    In 1965 Robert Manry a seemingly typical middle-aged suburbanite in Cleveland, Ohio, threw caution to the wind and set sail on a solo voyage across the Atlantic.  With a goal of sailing from Falmouth in the US to Falmouth in the UK this ocean adventure will have you captivated from start to finish.  A must see for ocean lovers, adventurers and boat enthusiasts alike.  

    SURFACE
    In a photographic niche defined by familiar angles, Ben Thouard is driven by his desire to create something original in surf photography.  His stunning and unique half/half shots have captivated ocean photographers around the globe.  Gain an insight into Ben’s love of his craft, his devotion to capturing “the shot” and his stunning adopted homeland of Tahiti.

    SOUTHERN RIGHT WHALE
    A hymn to nature, a cinematographic poem.  A complete sensory immersion into the heart of the Patagonian sea following the life of Southern Right Whales.  A must see on the big screen.

    ADVENTURE IS CALLING  
    Take a deep breath and explore the majestic underwater world from Egypt, Mexico, Philippines, U.S.A to the Bahamas.  Enjoy close encounters with marine life large and small.  Scuba diving is much more than a recreational sport, diving is about adventure, exploring the unknown, and the sense of freedom felt every time you sink beneath the surface.  

    I AM FRAGILE
    Captured across 6,000km from West Greenland to Nuanvut, Canada this stunning short film explores the remote Arctic and showcases the spectacular landscapes and wildlife of Devon Island, Bylot Island, Baffin Island, Somerset Island and the large Lancaster Sound.  Certain to create a lasting visual message that would inspire all who viewed it to protect this wild yet fragile region.  

    SURFER DAN
    Beyond the waves; the ocean, the sand, and the sun are a few elements that come to mind when you think of surfing.  But for this particular landlocked ocean lover, he finds all that he needs in the icy waves of Lake Superior, Michigan in the dead of winter.

    The Sedona tour stop of the Ocean Film Festival World Tour is made possible by a generous grant from the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona.

    A policy landscape of sexual orientation, gender identity and the internet

    Introduction

    Two groundbreaking advances in international human rights have been made in the last half decade, with recognition by intergovernmental bodies that human rights law applies equally to all persons regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity (SOGI), and that human rights law is equally applicable online as offline. However, these achievements have not been without significant advocacy efforts by civil society. While internet rights are being increasingly integrated and addressed across the international human rights system, developments on SOGI have been laboured, politicised and isolated, with no state consensus. This report considers the trends, shifts and convergences in international policy making, using a geopolitical analysis.

    A brief history

    Sexual orientation and gender identity

    Activists have been advocating for international recognition of SOGI-related rights as far back as the Beijing World Conference on Women in 1995,1 with concerted efforts to develop state awareness and recognition of the issues since a failed resolution on human rights and sexual orientation in 2003. 2 Brazil’s introduction, and later withdrawal, of a draft text was a catalyst for a number of civil society groups and activists working on sexuality and gender issues to communicate and coordinate more consistently to develop strategies to engage the UN human rights system on these issues. 3 This collective organising led to states delivering a series of joint statements at the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council (HRC) between 2005 and 2011; 4 increasing support for SOGI rights from a handful of countries to nearly half of the UN member states; and finally the adoption by the HRC of the first ever UN resolution on “human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity” in June 2011, 5 and the second in September 2014. 6

    Internet rights

    Although civil society has been involved in internet policy and governance spaces since the internet was created, the internet has only recently featured in international human rights policy development arenas. The impact of the internet on human rights was first recognised at the international level by an HRC resolution on freedom of expression in 2009. 7 Since then, the UN has adopted a number of resolutions developing international policy on this theme. In particular, the HRC adopted a resolution on “The promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights on the Internet” 8 in June 2012 with 85 state co-sponsors, which affirmed that the same human rights apply online as offline. The following year in November 2013, the General Assembly adopted a resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age, 9 which was followed up by the HRC in March 2015 with a procedural resolution of the same title, creating a UN expert mechanism on the right to privacy. 10 Since the 2009 resolution on freedom of expression, a number of thematic UN resolutions have addressed internet rights. 11

    Comparing intersectional recognition

    While internet rights concerns have effectively been mainstreamed into initiatives dealing with other human rights issues, sexual orientation and gender identity remain isolated from relevant state-negotiated human rights documents. 12

    Internet rights have been recognised by consensus in a number of intergovernmental policy documents, such as resolutions on freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of association and assembly, and the safety of journalists. 13 The use of the internet and other forms of technology in propagating harassment and violence against women has been acknowledged by the Commission on the Status of Women 14 – the primary UN political body tasked with women’s rights issues – and by the General Assembly in a resolution on protecting women human rights defenders. 15

    Conversely, there is a huge struggle to include any language that might be associated with SOGI in any government-negotiated documents at the international level, with such language overwhelmingly negotiated out of draft texts or put to a vote. For example, even the word “gender” has become controversial because some governments insist that gender can only denote biological sex, refusing to accept the concept of gender as a social construct or to recognise identities beyond the male-female binary. 16

    As a result, where SOGI language has been included in negotiated documents, it has been so virtually in isolation from intersecting fields, such as violence or discrimination against women or the protection of human rights defenders. The only UN human rights resolution to date referencing SOGI, apart from the HRC SOGI resolution itself, is the biennial General Assembly resolution on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. While the strong opposition to recognising SOGI-related rights means the discussion is reduced to violence and discrimination (the areas that have a possibility of gaining consensus), the reference in the “killings” resolution is nonetheless hotly contested each time, with attempts to vote the language out of the resolution during the final adoption process.17

    Despite the fact that a broad number of thematic and country-specific UN human rights experts regularly report a vast array of infringements of the rights of LGBTI persons,18 in social and economic rights as well as civil and political rights, the political bodies have so far failed to take the intersectional approach that has been an attribute of developments on internet rights.

    Politics of sexual orientation and gender identity rights

    International intergovernmental debate on SOGI is a delicate matter, and unfortunately plays out in ways that are politically divisive and strategically counterproductive. Although there is a slow but steady increase in support for these issues from states from all regions, they are still perceived as primarily Western priorities despite the fact that the first UN SOGI resolution was tabled by South Africa and Brazil, and the second by Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay.

    This is partly because Western states have styled themselves as international leaders on SOGI, critiquing discriminatory laws and practices outside of their regional group, and is compounded by certain Western states using aid conditionality to apply pressure on ex-colonies to repeal colonial-era criminal provisions on same-sex relations. 19

    These practices have created a “West versus the rest” dynamic which contributes to the geopolitical polarisation on gender and sexuality-related rights that is reflected at the international level, and alienates potential support from those states that are open to discussing SOGI-related rights, but are opposed to Western hegemony on the international stage.

    The politicisation of SOGI plays out in intergovernmental human rights policy development spaces such as the HRC in divisive and regressive ways. Firstly we have seen a division of state positions, generally along lines of regional and political blocs. 20 Traditionally this has been Western and most Latin American states supporting SOGI issues, opposed by Russia, the Vatican, most of the African Group and members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). States within these groups that have dared to support SOGI issues have faced harsh censure from their peers. 21

    Secondly, concepts such as cultural relativity, traditional values and protection of the family have been introduced and manipulated in these spaces, primarily by the religious right wing – the OIC, the Vatican, Russia, and conservative groups such as the UN Family Rights Caucus.22 Since 2009 the HRC has adopted various documents undermining the universality of rights, including three resolutions on “traditional values” and two on “protection of the family”. 23 In general, the support and opposition for these initiatives has been in line with positions against and for SOGI-related language respectively.

    The politicisation of sexuality rights in international forums means that foreign policy is often at odds with national-level standards and developments, particularly on rights relating to gender identity. For example, some Western states, such as Belgium, France, Norway and Switzerland, present themselves as champions of LGBT rights in international debates while requiring transgender people to undergo sterilisation in order to legally change their gender, 24 a policy that the European Court of Human Rights has ruled to be a violation of the rights to privacy and family life. 25 Conversely, some states that have culturally established and documented forms of gender diversity 26 – and in the case of Pakistan leading case law recognising the rights of hijras27 – claim that such diversity is contrary to their cultural, moral or religious values when it comes to international debate. 28 This is a terrible contradiction of domestic reality and foreign policy.

    State positions on SOGI in the international bodies have almost become a symbolic representation of one side versus another in the greater struggle for a new world order that replaces Western hegemony. Sadly, this positioning is to the detriment of human rights, including through the development of international legal norms and standards that exclude LGBTIQ persons.

    Politics of internet rights

    In comparison to the tumultuous international debates on SOGI, internet rights policy has been developing relatively smoothly, with consensus resolutions and references in the UN General Assembly, the HRC and the Commission on the Status of Women. This is not to suggest that states unanimously respect or support internet-related rights, but that opposition is more nuanced and complex than the open hostility that some governments express on SOGI.

    While there does indeed appear to be international consensus on the issue of access to technology, a customary division of state positions on other issues such as freedom of expression remains unchanged in how states see their validity online or offline. During the HRC plenary panel on freedom of expression on the internet in 2012, China called on the international community to promote internet access in developing countries while also stating that freedom of expression could undermine social stability and national security.29 Cuba has both expressed concern about issues of access to information and communications technology (ICT) and lamented the United States (US) monopoly of the internet. 30

    Furthermore, the geopolitical divide over internet rights is not as clear-cut as it is on SOGI issues. When Edward Snowden leaked classified information from the US National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, the US was in the unusual position of being criticised by many of its peers in the West.31

    Indeed, states from all regions have relished the opportunity to criticise the US in the wake of the Snowden revelations. Although not explicitly critical of US policy, pre-existing anti-US sentiment meant that the resolutions on the right to privacy in the digital age quickly garnered support amongst states such as North Korea, 32 Russia, Cuba and China. 33 Consequently, it could be argued that a politicisation of internet rights issues has been to the benefit of consensus-building on international human rights policy development on these issues.

    SOGI versus internet rights policy

    As SOGI language is a notorious key to destroying consensus in government negotiations, states have used sexual orientation references as a bargaining chip to block or undermine developments that they oppose.

    For example, sexual orientation language was used by Western states to bargain against references to the “defamation of religions” in international discussions on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, both during the Durban Review Conference in 2009 and in follow-up meetings and negotiations. 34

    This highly questionable tactic arose in discussions on internet rights in negotiations on a resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age at the UN General Assembly in 2013, when a key ally of the US proposed including a reference to sexual orientation. Some of the Five Eyes 35 countries readily supported the proposed language, while other states that were supportive of the resolution theme objected, knowing they would not be able to join consensus on a text that contained sexual orientation language. This was understood to be a strategy to break consensus on an issue that those states implicated in the revelations of deep breaches of privacy rights could not otherwise break without admitting that they did not support the key message of the resolution.

    As the Five Eyes countries were openly attempting to water down the text of the privacy resolution, 36 it seemed likely that sexual orientation language was actually being introduced in order to polarise state positions on the text as a whole, and potentially lead to a vote. In effect, the US and its allies pitted sexual orientation against the right to privacy in a failed attempt to undermine international condemnation of and action on the infringement of rights that is mass surveillance.

    Moving towards an intersectional approach

    Although SOGI and internet rights have developed independently from one another at the international level, the slow increase in state support for SOGI-related rights in international human rights bodies, and the increasing attention being given to internet rights in a number of different thematic resolutions, means that the UN could constructively address their intersection in the near future.

    The prevailing geopolitical divide is likely to continue to obstruct the inclusion of SOGI in UN resolutions. However, with internet rights being addressed in a number of negotiated thematic texts, it is not unreasonable to suggest that relevant issues could be included in a future substantive resolution on SOGI.

    Furthermore, the HRC resolution on the right to privacy in the digital age mandated the appointment of a UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy. The Special Procedures mechanisms 37 have been key allies in raising violations of the rights of LGBTIQ persons across a broad section of thematic and country-specific mandates. A recent report of the Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression to the HRC highlighted how encryption and anonymity in digital communications enable persons persecuted because of sexual orientation or gender identity to exercise the right to freedom of opinion and expression, as well as providing, for some, the only way to securely explore basic aspects of identity such as one’s gender or sexuality. 38

    The new Special Procedures mandate has been tasked to look at the right to privacy, “including in connection with” (i.e. but not limited to) the challenges arising from new technologies. Many SOGI rights issues clearly fall under the mandate focus on privacy. It will remain to be seen whether the Rapporteur chooses to address human rights concerns relating to LGBTIQ persons in the execution of the mandate.

    Conclusion

    With a number of consensus resolutions and documents addressing internet rights, and the creation of an expert mandate on the right to privacy, it is safe to conclude that these issues are now firmly on the UN agenda, and will continue to be mainstreamed into the work of the HRC. Meanwhile, SOGI rights remain segregated with no regular or institutionalised attention to ongoing violations. It will likely remain extremely difficult to get states to consider the human rights of LGBTIQ persons on their substantial merit as long as SOGI continues to be politicised and manipulated by both supportive states and the opposition. The new expert mechanism on the right to privacy could see these two issues being addressed concurrently and with an intersectional analysis for the first time. It remains to be seen whether intergovernmental debate will mature beyond political strife to welcome such an analysis.

For example, while activists and human rights defenders might use the language of Queer rights, this term has not been taken up by the UN, but the UN does recognise and use L,G,B,T and I. Other language yet to be referenced in UN negotiated documents includes “gender expression” and “bodily integrity”.

    20 UN member states are divided into five regional groups: the African Group, Asia-Pacific Group, Eastern European Group, Latin America and the Caribbean Group, and Western European and Others Group. There are also a number of additional political blocs and affiliations of states and sub-regional blocs that form collective positions on issues, such as the Arab Group, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Mercosur, the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the European Union (EU), etc.

    21 For example, South Africa and Mauritius were publicly denigrated by Nigeria, the then coordinator of the African Group, for their leadership on and support for the first UN resolution on human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity in 2011.

    Marc Ribot Quartet na zakończenie 61. Jazz Jamboree

     Cache   

    Po krótkiej przerwie 61. edycja Jazz Jamboree, powraca, z ostatim, w tej edycji, koncertem. 7 listopada, w Bemowskim Centrum Kultury, wystąpi Marc Ribot Quartet.

    „Każdy ruch, który kiedykolwiek wygrał, miał piosenki” - mówi Marc Ribot. Koncert Marca Ribota z zespołem uzbrojony w  Pieśni Oporu będzie przysłowiową kropką nad i tegorocznego, 61-ego festiwalu Jazz Jamboree.
    Nad nowym albumem ‘Songs of Resistance 1948-2018’, Ribot - jeden z najbardziej uznanych na świecie gitarzystów - postanowił przygotować wyjątkowy  zestaw piosenek.
    Wśród jedenastu utworów na płycie znalazły się piosenki napisane podczas II wojny światowej przez antyfaszystowskich włoskich partyzantów, piosenki działaczy ruchu praw obywatelskich USA i meksykańskie ballady protestacyjne, a także oryginalne kompozycje, w nagraniu których wziął udział szeroki wachlarz wokalistów, jak: Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Meshell Ndegeocello, Justin Vivian Bond, Fay Victor, Sam Amidon i Ohene Cornelius.
    Ribot rozpoczął pracę nad projektem pod koniec 2016 roku, odpowiadając nie tylko na amerykańskie wybory, ale na polityczne trendy, które widział na całym świecie. „Jestem zaniepokojony Trumpem i ruchem, którego jest częścią. Sporą część życia spędziłem w trasie i jestem swego rodzaju przypadkowym internacjonalistą - i widzę że on nie jest odosobnionym zjawiskiem. Jeśli czegoś z tym nie zrobimy, to to coś zrobi to z nami.”.
    W ciągu czterdziestoletniej kariery Ribot wydał dwadzieścia pięć albumów pod własnym nazwiskiem i był drogowskazem na nowojorskiej scenie muzyki downtown i eksperymentalnej, prowadzącej wiele zespołów, w tym Los Cubanos Postizos i Ceramic Dog.

    Od czasu pracy z Tomem Waitsem przy albumie ‘Rain Dogs’ z 1985 roku jest jednak najbardziej znany na świecie jako muzyk sesyjny, grający na niezliczonych albumach takich artystów jak: Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp, Norah Jones, The Black Keys i Robert Plant, a także na płycie ‘Raising Sand’ Alison Krauss, która zdobyła nagrodę Grammy.
    Oprócz muzycznych wysiłków, Ribot jest również szczerym aktywistą i społecznikiem, walczącym o prawa muzyków w cyfrowych czasach. „Pamiętam jak brałem udział w okupacji Wall Street wczesnym rankiem. To był moment, kiedy ludzie potrzebowali czegoś do zaśpiewania. Próbowali ‘I Won’t Back Down’ Toma Petty'ego, ale to nie do końca pasowało. Frustrowało mnie, że mamy tak bogatą historię pieśni rewolucyjnych, ale nikt ich nie zna.
    Na tej płycie jest piosenka działaczy ruchu praw obywatelskich USA, którą ludzie tradycyjnie śpiewali, gdy byli aresztowani - ‘[We Are] Soldiers in the Army’. Dźwięk może podróżować do radiowozów i więziennych cel, gdzie ludzie są odizolowani i pozbawieni swoich praw. Ta piosenka przypomina im, że nie są sami. Piosenki mogą również przypominać nam, że nie jesteśmy sami duchowo lub historycznie: w rzeczywistości, mamy wspaniałe towarzystwo. Jednak śpiewanie razem jest czymś więcej niż tylko gestem. To sam w sobie jest akt polityczny. Kiedy ludzie są gotowi zaśpiewać „Jesteśmy żołnierzami w wojsku / musimy walczyć / musimy również płakać”, to jest już połowa sukcesu.”.
    Dla Marca Ribota, tworzenie ‘Songs of Resistance’ było nie tylko aktem protestu, ale odkrywaniem. „Wiele razy zadawałem sobie pytanie, czy mam prawo do sięgania po te pieśni, poruszać te historie, czy zmieniać teksty. Czasami musieliśmy zmienić aranżację, by na bazie oryginału zmienić kontekst.”.

    W czasie społecznej zawieruchy, taki projekt jest wyzwaniem. Ale cel Ribota jest jasny. „Jest wiele sprzeczności w każdej politycznej muzyce. Jak się buntować przeciwko czemuś, nie stając się tym, czego się nienawidzi? Czasami trudno zorientować się, co robić. Wiem, że popełniamy błędy, ale mam nadzieję, że się na nich uczymy. Wiedziałem to od chwili, gdy  Donald Trump został wybrany na prezydenta.

    Kiedy demokracja jest zagrożona, ludzie którzy cenią pewne wartości, powinni pracować razem, aby się bronić. Gdy podstawowe prawa człowieka są zagrożone przez rasistów, seksistów i homofobów, musimy reagować. Nie wiem jaka jest odpowiedź, ale wiem, że jak nie będziemy pracować razem, osobno skopią nam tyłki.”.

    SINOPSIS SETELAH KU DIMILIKI

    Mengisahkan mengenai konflik cinta di antara Sarra dan Adriz yang diuji dengan pelbagai dugaan. Kerana dosa silamnya, Sarra dihalau ibunya dan membawa diri ke Pulau Langkawi tanpa arah tuju.  Sarra bernasib baik apabila dia diperkenalkan kepada Bonda Ummi dan ditawarkan bekerja di sebuah pusat perlindungan yang diberi nama Rumah Azirah.

    Pertemuan semula yang tidak diduga dengan Adriz di Rumah Azirah membuatkan hati Sarra berdegup kencang. Akan tetapi, Adriz tidak mengenalinya langsung kerana dia mengalami hilang ingatan disebabkan kemalangan lalu. Sebelum ditimpa kemalangan, Adriz merupakan seorang yang liar dan suka berfoya-foya tetapi setelah tersedar daripada koma, Adriz tidak lagi mengingati kehidupan lamanya dan perangainya juga berubah.

    Encik Rahimin yang juga pengasas Rumah Azirah tidak mahu Adriz kembali kepada kehidupan lamanya, dan atas sebab itu dia membawa Adriz ke Rumah Azirah. Adriz kemudiannya membuat keputusan untuk menguruskan Rumah Azirah kerana mahu meringankan beban ayahnya yang sibuk menguruskan perniagaan lain.

    Adriz cuba mendekati Sarra, namun Sarra sering mengelak daripada bertemu dengannya. Tetapi semakin Sarra mengelak daripada Adriz, Adriz semakin ingin mengenali Sarra.

    Adriz tertanya-tanya, mengapa Sarra bersikap dingin dengannya. Namun sebenarnya, dalam hati Sarra, tiada degupan cinta lain. Hanya untuk lelaki yang bernama Adriz, yang mempunyai kisah silam dengannya, yang akhirnya sah menjadi suaminya.

    Namun, rumah tangga mereka mula menemui cabaran apabila kakak tirinya, Lina sendiri ingin memiliki Adriz tanpa pengetahuannya.

    Adakah Lina berjaya merobohkan istana cinta Sarra yang terbina bersama Adriz? Apakah yang sebenarnya terjadi di antara Sarra dan Adriz?

    Decriminalising sex industry a gift to pimps and traffickers – 40-organisation coalition

     Cache   

    The Proposal by Integra and Aditus to decriminalise the Sex Industry is a gift to pimps and traffickers and would turn Malta into a haven for Sex Tourism and increase sex trafficking, a multi-disciplinary Coalition comprising over forty organisations who work in the area of prostitution, trafficking, equality and human rights, said.

    They deem the proposal by Integra and aditus to be highly irresponsible and dangerous for our country.

    "Integra and Aditus, largely focus on promoting the rights of migrants and the LGBTIQ.  They should know that opening up the sex industry will not protect vulnerable people, but will increase the number abuses against vulnerable people and the incidence of trafficked victims. The relatively small number of transgender people and migrants entering prostitution, often do so not as a result of a free choice, but through desperation. This is not demonstrable agency and autonomy, but duress and coercion of circumstance, if not people."

    "Instead of completely legalising prostitution, we should unite to address the deficits in society that produce that desperation. We should work together to and ensure everyone has equal access to legal and decent employment. We must not open up the sex industry for this small minority of people at the expense of the overwhelming majority of vulnerable and exploited people."

    "If implemented, the Integra/aditus proposal will have devastating long terms physical and mental health repercussions on all prostituted persons, including those involved from the LGBTIQ and migrant communities. Prostitution can never be equated to a 'normal' job, a body can never been adequately protected as a 'place of work'."

    Regulation of the sex industry has without exception, failed to deliver its promised improvements to both the health of and conditions for women, the coalition said. "Evidence in these countries proves unequivocally that conditions for women in regulated prostitution industries are far worse."

    "In terms of public health, and on the premise of avoiding the spread of disease, compulsory medical testing of prostituted people is often required by law legalising prostitution. What this fails to realise is that diseases like HIV and STDs are overwhelmingly transmitted by men to women during intercourse. Yet, there are no requirements for male sex buyers to submit to disease control testing. Also, the incubation period of some diseases will give false negative results that present further health risks."

    "The model advocated by the Coalition has been found to be the best model that protects the health and safety of the prostituted person as it shifts the power from the buyer, who has full rights when buying in a decriminalised environment, to the seller. In all countries that have decriminalised prostitution, the sex industry expanded rapidly and the demand for prostitutes has not been meet with the supply of 'voluntary' prostitutes, locally. In every country where this happened, many foreign women, the vast majority of whom are poor and desperate; are lured, tricked or trafficked into more affluent countries to keep the sex industry going.  This raises class and race issues which are tolerated in a neo liberal economy that prioritises money over the well-being of those caught in the web of prostitution."

    "This was clearly the case in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and New Zealand which have all seen significant increases in trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation.  All these countries are now scrambling to control and reverse the disastrous consequences of their legislative mistakes. Integra and Aditus incorrectly assert that prostitution and trafficking are divisible - they are not."

    Malta is at the cross roads and should learn from the mistakes made in other countries rather than fall into the same trap and suffer the same devastating consequences, they said.  The entities supporting the equality model and its attendant proposals are endorsed by the following organisations, leading figures and activists:

    Association for Equality (A4E), Attard Ladies Cultural Club (ALCC), Azzjoni Kattolika Maltija (AKM), Caritas, Dar Hosea, Dar Merhba Bik, Department of Gender Studies (UOM), Department of Social Policy and Social Work (UOM), emPOWer Platform, Business and Professional Women (Valletta) Malta (BPW), Foundation for Women Entrepreneurs Malta (FWE),  Malta Association of Women in Business (MAWB), Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society (MFWS), National Centre for Family Research, National Observatory for Living with Dignity, National Institute for Childhood, Malta Girl Guides (MGG), Moviment Nisa' Partit Nazzjonalista (MNPN), National Council of Women (NCW), Soroptimists International Malta (SI), Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA), Faculty of Theology (UOM), Ghaqda Studenti tat-Teologija, Good Shepherd Sisters, Justice and Peace Commission, Local Councils' Association, Malta Association of Public Health Medicine (MAPHM), Malta Confederation of Women's Organisations (MCWO), Malta Medical Students Association (MMSA), Malta Midwives Association (MMA), Men Against Violence (MAV), OASI Foundation, Saint Jeanne Antide Foundation (SJAF), Solidarity Overseas Service (SOS) Malta, University Chaplaincy, Victim Support Malta (VSM), Women's Rights Foundation, Women's Study Group (WSG), President Emeritus Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, Dr Anna Borg - Academic and Women's Rights Activist, Ms Helen Burrows - International Human Rights Lawyer and Justice Reform Practitioner, Dr Angele Deguara - Academic and Social Activist, Dr Lara Dimitrijevic - Lawyer and Women's Rights Activist, Ms Francesca Fenech Conti - Women's rights activist and founder of the Women for, Ms Marietherese Gatt - Researcher and Women's rights activist, Ms Romina Gatt Lopez - Researcher - Dar Hosea, Dr Anna Vella - Management - Dar Hosea, Coalition Abolition Prostitution (CAP) International, Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW), European Network of Migrant Women (ENOMW), European Women's Lobby (EWL), Survivors of Prostitution Abuse Calling for Enlightenment (SPACE) International

    Caramba hermano, como me duele pensar así, pero es lo que siento ante estos “fenómenos” de esperanza, no me puedo conformar. Gracias por tus palabras, sabes que cada una de ellas las hago reciproco contigo por tu prosa y tu pensamiento, y que bien que si un día haces el mejor de tus escritos yo seria "el muzo" de tu titulo, en realidad somos muchos los que pensamos así, pero ninguno tenemos miedo a perder nada, esa es la diferencia, así de simple. Ahora mismo acabamos de ganar miserablemente, Borroto disertando en la dirección, los "japoneses" del equipo de lagrimas y el bochorno aumenta, por eso siento pena, mucha pena por todos los que aun se atreven a defender lo indefendible y a intentar taparnos el sol con un dedo, ¡¡con un dedo brother!!

    Veno de me far rentrar dintre per un camion amb la mieu veitura.
    E alora es lo festenal.
    Lo camion esita de partir mas s'arresta al final.
    Lo menaire es un emplegat doncas lo padron al telefòn me ditz de lo laissar partir. Ai ren d'assegurança notaia. E ditz dirèct: es de la vòstra fauta. Tranquille, quiet.
    Va. A la costuma que ditz a mai.

    Es ben marcat "Non s'enervar, demorar corteses e quiets" sus la cubèrta dal constat
    Coma far? Ai ren demandat e l'ambient es poirit ja. Pilha la tèsta e perturba, pollucion mentala.

An capit, parton. Mas encara, ambient de...

    Interview of Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, with the Ria-Novosti news agency and journalist G. Melnik (5 November 2019)

     Cache   
    JOURNALIST: Minister, you’re travelling to Moscow for talks with your Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov. What is the agenda for the talks? What topics will you discuss and what is your assessment of the current situation in our bilateral relations? N. DENDIAS: It will be my first meeting with Mr. Lavrov, and I am very pleased that we will be able to have an in-depth discussion of issues that concern us. Greece and Russia maintain historical relations of friendship and cooperation. Our country consistently pursues the further enhancement of good cooperation with the Russian side, based on mutual respect and equality. I note that Greece, in spite of any problems that were created in the past, remained firm in its insistence on communicating with Russia, even in the midst of a difficult state of affairs in Russia’s relations with the West, which we have seen in recent years. Moreover, Russia is a great power that plays an important role on a global scale, including in Southeast Europe and the Middle East, which are areas of immediate interest to us. This is why we want to develop our relations further, with a view to maintaining regional stability, especially in the current fragile state of affairs. In this context, my Russian colleague, Mr. Lavrov, and I will be able to discuss all of the issues that concern the wider region, with the aim of seeking common ground on how to manage the current challenges. We will also have the opportunity to discuss our bilateral relations, with the aim of enhancing our cooperation in a wide range of sectors. JOURNALIST: The European sanctions and the Russian embargo limit Greek farmers’ access to the huge Russian market. Do you support French President Emmanuel Macron’s initiatives for overcoming the differences and sanctions in Russian-EU relations – differences and sanctions that benefit no one? How can we improve the relations between Russia and the European Union? What do you think about reinstating the practice of holding EU-Russia summit meetings? N. DENDIAS: As an EU member state, Greece is bound by EU decisions. This is also true in relation to the sanctions adopted against Russia, which our country is obliged to implement. On the other hand, although Greece is one of the member states that argues in favour of maintaining good, functional relations and open channels of communication with Russia, it is unfortunately also among the countries hardest hit by the inclusion of agricultural products in Russia’s countermeasures, because, as you know, agricultural products are a large portion of our exports. Our country considers Russia to be an intrinsic part of the European security architecture and tries to make a positive contribution to the dialogue with Russia. We support initiatives aimed at improving EU-Russian relations, while also highlighting the need for full implementation of international law. After all, as Greece is well aware from the provocative violations in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean, only insistence on strict compliance with the rules of international law can ensure the peaceful coexistence of states and regional stability. JOURNALIST: There are already significant Russian investments in Greece in sectors of non-strategic interest, such as tourism and real estate. Some €410 million has been invested in Elounda in Crete. In what other sectors do you see opportunities for strategic investments and the development of economic relations? Are there prospects in the energy sector, in the natural gas sector, with regard to the Turkish Stream plan? N. DENDIAS: As you rightly said, there are opportunities for further development of our bilateral economic relations and for strengthening Russian investments in Greece. Of course, I would say that my country considers tourism a strategic sector. But we are naturally prepared to welcome Russian investments in other sectors as well. First of all, Russian investments in sectors such as infrastructure, transport and construction can be carried out through the participation of investment groups in the privatisation programme our government is implementing, mainly through the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF), in combination with the public investment programme that is under way. In fact, Russian investors, like all investors, can take advantage of the benefits of the new development law (financing incentives, reduced bureaucracy, streamlined procedures) that was recently passed by the Hellenic Parliament and provides a very attractive institutional framework for attracting investment programmes of major importance for our country. I would also like to mention the sectors of high tech and applied research, where, through collaboration between business groups, incubators and start-up clusters, opportunities for mutually beneficial synergies might arise – synergies with significant added value for the collaborating companies and, by extension, our bilateral economic relations. Regarding the energy sector, Russia is an important partner for Greece, with prospects for further deepening of bilateral cooperation in the future. We welcome the synergies that have been developed between Greek and Russian companies, first and foremost in the natural gas sector, and at the same time we are interested in enhancing our cooperation in other fields, such as renewable energy sources. JOURNALIST: Minister, Russia and Greece traditionally celebrate major events in our shared history. A few days ago, we marked the anniversary of the Battle of Navarino. Have any joint events been scheduled for 2021, the bicentennial of the Greek Revolution? If so, what events? N. DENDIAS: The scheduling of events marking the bicentennial of the Greek Revolution is currently under way. In any event, our country acknowledges the decisive role that Russia and other great powers of the era, including Britain and France, played in the Greek Revolution. We are also aware of the decisive role that the Greek diaspora in Russia played in initiating and building the struggle for independence. As such, we want to honour the history of our peoples and our states, and highlight the need for this to guide the future development of our relations.

    A London Journey Through the World of Codebreaking, Ciphers and Secret Communications

     Cache   

    Editor's Note: Before reading about London's Science Museum, you might take a stroll online at the National Security Agency's National Cryptologic Museum here in the United States - below: World War 2: U.S. Navy Cryptanalytic BombeNational Cryptologic Museum image

    London's Science Museum launched a major new exhibition exploring communications intelligence and cyber security over the course of 100 years.  Top Secret: From ciphers to cyber security marks the centenary of GCHQ, the UK’s Intelligence, Security and Cyber agency which was first acknowledged in law in 1994. Through never-before-seen objects, interactive puzzles and first-person interviews, the exhibition explores the challenges of maintaining digital security in the 21st century and the unique technologies used throughout the history of one of the UK’s intelligence agencies. 
     
    Among over 100 objects in the exhibition that reveal fascinating stories of communications intelligence and cyber security from the last century are cipher machines used during the Second World War, secure telephones of the type used by British Prime Ministers, and an encryption key used by Her Majesty The Queen.

    Sir Ian Blatchford, Director of the Science Museum Group, said: ‘With the help of GCHQ, our expert advisors on the exhibition, we are privileged to reveal some of the previously hidden histories of the UK’s intelligence community. By exhibiting over 100 remarkable objects, we aim to engage visitors with the people and technologies that keep us safe, at a time when cyber security has never been more important to people’s everyday lives.’ 

    The exhibition also explores the work of GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which works to defend against cyberattacks. Visitors will be able to see a computer infected with the WannaCry ransomware which, in 2017, affected thousands of people and organisations including the NHS. 

    Jeremy Fleming, Director GCHQ said‘This unique collaboration between GCHQ and the Science Museum is a great way to mark our Centenary and give visitors previously-unseen insights into how GCHQ has helped protect the UK over the past 100 years. For the first time the public will be given a glimpse into our secret history of amazing intelligence, world-leading innovation, and most of all brilliant people. And — as the threats to the UK become more diverse and more complex - it’s a chance to encourage the next generation of recruits. Because at GCHQ we believe that with the right mix of minds anything is possible.’Enigma machine

    The exhibition includes the story of the encryption technology used by the Krogers who, until their arrest in the 1960s, were part of the most successful Soviet spy ring in Cold War Britain. Visitors will also be able to see the remains of the crushed hard drive alleged to contain top secret information which was given by Edward Snowden to The Guardian in 2013.Pickwick phone

    Exhibited for the first time in public is the 5-UCO, one of the first electronic and fully unbreakable cipher machines. It was developed to handle the most secret messages during the Second World War, including sending Bletchley Park’s decrypted Enigma messages to the British military in the field and was in use into the 1950s. This ultra-secret machine was previously believed to have been destroyed. Visitors to the exhibition will also discover the story of the Lorenz machine. Mistakes made by a German radio operator while using a Lorenz machine enabled workers at Bletchley Park to break the Enigma code, bringing the Allies one step closer to winning the war.   Right, Enigma Machine M1070, on loan from GCHQ

    Secure telephones that were at the cutting-edge of innovation played a crucial role for Britain during the Cold War. The Pickwick telephone was developed to keep transatlantic communication secure between John F. Kennedy and Harold Macmillan during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. By the 1980s secure telephone systems were portable, and visitors will be able to see Margaret Thatcher’s secure briefcase telephone, which was used to communicate the course of action to the British Ministry of Defence during the Falklands War in 1982.  Right, Pickwick secure telephone system used by President John Kennedy and PM Harold MacMillan during Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962

    An interactive puzzle zone within the exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to test their own codebreaking skills and explore first-hand the skills required to succeed in the world of GCHQ.

    The exhibition is supported by Principal Funder DCMS, Principal Sponsors Raytheon, Avast and DXC Technology, Major Sponsor QinetiQ, Associate Funder The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, and supported by Keith Thrower, with special thanks to Michael Spencer and NEX Group. The exhibition’s Media Partner is The Telegraph.
     
    Top Secret: From ciphers to cyber security runs at the Science Museum until 23 February 2020. Tickets are free and can be booked online or in the museum. 

    Editor's NoteTo mark the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War, Imperial War Museum has released concept sketches of the new Second World War and Holocaust Galleries which will open at IWM London in 2021. Hopefully, we could go!

    Israeli high court greenlights rights activist's expulsion

     Cache   

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's Supreme Court on Tuesday cleared the way for the expulsion of the local director of Human Rights Watch, rejecting an appeal against a lower court's decision and sparking fierce criticism by rights groups that the ruling would harm freedom of expression and their work in the country.

    The director, Omar Shakir, a U.S. citizen, was initially ordered to leave the country because Israel charged that his advocacy against Israel's Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank amounted to support for the Palestinian-led boycott movement.

    An Israeli law from 2017 bars entry to those who publicly support a boycott of Israel or its West Bank settlements. Shakir's case has been followed closely internationally as a litmus test for how Israel would enforce the controversial legislation.

    "Does Israel want to join the ranks of countries like Iran, North Korea and Cuba that block access for Human Rights Watch staff? Today's decision will have significant ramifications," Shakir said.

    "It really goes to the heart of what kind of country Israel is and wants to become in the future," he added.

    Tuesday's ruling came after a lengthy legal saga in which Shakir challenged the decision to expel him, with a lower court siding with the state. Shakir was allowed to remain in Israel for the duration of the proceedings.

    The judge who wrote the decision appeared to play down its potential future impact on other rights groups and activists.

    "There is nothing in the decision to reflect upon other human rights organizations and activists," Justice Neal Hendel wrote. His ruling primarily dealt with the legality of the decision to expel Shakir rather than the 2017 boycott law. The court gave Shakir 20 days to leave the country and ordered him to pay the legal fees associated...

    Chobani’s newest food incubator is boosting veterans’ food businesses

     Cache   

    The yogurt company often helps groups of small food startups, to pass on the lessons it learned on its way to enormous growth. This time, it’s focused on veterans, making everything from BBQ sauce to sorbet.

    In the fall of 2016, Chobani started a business incubator to provide like-minded but smaller food startups with $25,000 in equity-free funding and the coaching necessary to grow to the next level. The idea was to expand the ecosystem of socially good and health-focused companies, but Chobani, it turns out, has learned as much about its own business as the companies in the incubator have learned from Chobani.

    Fesser: «Colón fue un emprendedor que inventó el primer internet»

     Cache   

    Guillermo Fesser, defensor de la gesta de España en América.

    Un reciente hilo de Twitter publicado por el periodista español Guillermo Fesser ha creado un gran impacto en la red social recabando el apoyo a través de miles de reenvíos y de aprobaciones a través del botón 'me gusta'.

    La reflexión el periodista afincado en Nueva York, está dirigida "a todos los hermanos hispanos de Estados Unidos: Harto de tener que navegar continuamente entre lo español y lo hispano, como si fueran realidades distintas, como si la una debiese de invitar a la vergüenza y la otra al orgullo".

    Fesser expone con sencillez y ciñéndose a la verdad histórica cuestiones que son negadas por los difusores de la Leyenda Negra sobre el descubrimiento de América por los españoles y lo que sucedió a lo largo de los siglos con ese imperio hasta su disolución.

    El excomponente del dúo 'Gomaespuma' junto a Juan Luis Cano, explica que "España (entonces Castilla) nunca consideró ningún territorio de América colonia, sino una nueva provincia"; o que, pese a los atropellos que se cometieran contra la población local, "está plenamente documentado que los Reyes Católicos extendieron los derechos de que gozaban los habitantes de la península a los territorios de ultramar y que trataron de perseguir a quienes no mantuvieran tales principios".

    Fesser subraya que la mentalidad dominante hoy cae en una postura errónea al juzgar la historia con parámetros de otros siglos, cuando "la gran pregunta cuando uno revisa la historia no es cómo de justos fueron sus protagonistas de acuerdo a la visión actual, sino cuán justos fueron respecto al pensamiento de su época".

    También defiende que el proceso de las llamadas independencias de las naciones hispánicas de América no fue sino "una guerra civil entre españoles" y no una suerte de gesta de liberación indigenista.

    Colon 'inventó' internet

    Una de las partes más destacables de la carta abierta de Guillermo Fessser es la forma en que describe la gesta de Colón en América.

    A su juicio, Colón fue un "emprendedor que cambió la fisonomía del mundo inventando el primer internet", porque entonces "Google era el inmenso océano, el ratón se apellidaba Pinzón y a Amazon lo llamaban el galeón de Manila".

    "Gracias a la hazaña de Colón, se conectaron por vez primera los humanos de los diferentes continentes", enfatiza.

    Por su interés, reproducimos en su integridad la carta abierta de Guillermo Fesser "a todos los hermanos hispanos de Estados Unidos".

    Carta abierta a todos
    los hermanos hispanos de Estados Unidos: Harto de tener que navegar
    continuamente entre lo español y lo hispano, como si fueran realidades
    distintas, como si la una debiese de invitar a la vergüenza y la otra al
    orgullo, me decido a escribir estas líneas.

    En primer lugar, quiero aclarar que odiar a España por su papel en la conquista, me parece a mi, no es bueno, ni malo, ni todo lo contrario. Solamente quisiera estar seguro de que ese odio está fundamentado y no es objeto de manipulación.

    En México, en Guatemala o en el Perú de 2019, vive mucha gente con rasgos indígenas o mezclados. En Nueva York, es imposible ver a nadie. Algunos, muchos españoles, exterminaron indígenas; pero muchos más les respetaron

    Para empezar quisiera compartir el dato histórico de  que España (entonces Castilla) nunca consideró ningún territorio de América colonia, sino una nueva provincia. Esto no exime de culpas a las terribles atrocidades cometidas por carniceros, con mentalidad del siglo XVI que realizaron todo tipo de vergonzosos ultrajes contra los nativos de América; pero está plenamente documentado que los Reyes Católicos extendieron los derechos de que gozaban los habitantes de la península a los territorios de ultramar y que trataron de perseguir a quienes no mantuvieran tales principios. Otra cosa es que lo consiguieran, en una época en que (con la población diezmada por las hambrunas, la peste, y las continuas guerras con Europa) mandar “policía” a América resultaba harto complejo.

    Basta una rápida
    comparación con el supuesto imperio británico (que nunca fue un verdadero
    imperio, pues los imperios, como hizo el Romano con Hispania, anexionaban las
    culturas conquistadas a su cultura, mientras que, los británicos, simplemente
    se limitaron a exterminarlas).

    En México, en Guatemala o en el Perú de 2019, vive mucha gente con rasgos indígenas o mezclados. En Nueva York, es imposible ver a nadie. Algunos, muchos españoles, exterminaron indígenas; pero muchos más les respetaron.

    Respeto, ojo, con la mentalidad de lo que significaba respeto en el siglo XVI que, tristemente, consistía básicamente en catolizarles. La gran pregunta cuando uno revisa la historia no es cómo de justos fueron sus protagonistas de acuerdo a la visión actual.

    Sino cuán justos fueron
    respecto al pensamiento de su época. Es muy bonito ser feminista en el siglo
    XXI, pero hasta el XIX ibas a la hoguera si te atrevías a comentarlo. Los
    valientes de hoy no necesariamente hubieran sido tan valientes en el pasado.

    Dicho esto, quisiera
    expresar mi más profunda convicción de que las guerras de independencia de los
    territorios de España en América no fueron en absoluto guerras de
    independencia. ¿Ganaron acaso Moctezuma o Atahualpa?

    No fue ni mucho menos una guerra de liberación de los indígenas americanos de sus invasores españoles. Las independencias americanas no fueron otra cosa que una guerra civil entre españoles. Entre los que querían seguir pagando impuestos al rey en la metrópoli y los que preferían quedarse el dinero para ellos mismos. Ganaron, en nombre de los indígenas, los que querían quedarse con el dinero para ellos; las mismas familias, descendientes de españoles, que hoy siguen negándoles el pan y la sal a los indígenas.

    Vencedores que, para justificar ante la historia que estaban del lado de los justos (cuando sólo estuvieron y continúan estando del lado propio) demonizaron a sus hermanos españoles perdedores. Narrativa a la que sumaron los estadounidenses para darles la puntilla y justificar así la anexión imperialista de Puerto Rico, Cuba, Guam y Filipinas. Ojalá llegue un día en que todos los hispanos, descendientes de uno y otro bando, entendamos que este estúpido enfrentamiento entre nosotros solamente beneficia a los canallas.

    Rufianes que nos
    enseñaron a avergonzarnos de nuestra historia común, mostrando a Cristóbal
    Colón como un genocida, cuando en realidad deberíamos estar orgulloso del
    emprendedor que cambió la fisonomía del mundo inventando el primer internet.

    Lo que ocurre es que
    entonces Google era el inmenso océano, el ratón se apellidaba Pinzón, y a
    Amazon lo llamaban el galeón de Manila. Gracias a la hazaña de Colón, se
    conectaron por vez primera los humanos de los diferentes continentes.

    La caña de azúcar pasó
    de Asia a España y, de España, a Cuba. Los biombos del Japón llegaron a México
    y, de ahí, a Holanda y al imperio austriaco. Cambiaron las expectativas del
    mundo con Colón tanto o más que con el alunizaje de Neil Armstrong.

    La diferencia es que el astronauta es un héroe entre los suyos ... y nosotros renegamos profundamente del nuestro. Hermanos hispanos, se nos ningunea, se nos desprecia, se abusa de nosotros, y no hallamos respuesta porque permanecemos divididos. Es tiempo de revisar la historia y decidir, de verdad, si es cierto que este odio que nos profesamos está basado en algo irremediable, o podemos encontrar common ground y juntar una fuerza definitiva que nos ayude a conseguir una vida mejor para todos.

    Como árboles, cada uno hemos desarrollado una copa diferente, con distintas ramas y follajes, pero nuestro bosque, nos guste o no, permanece anclado en las mismas raíces. ¿No podríamos empezar a disfrutarlo plantándole cara a la xenofobia y la manipulación que nos separa? Ojalá.

    3-2. Cuba vence a Australia y se mantiene con vida en el Premier 12

     Cache   

    Seúl (Corea), 7 nov (EFE).- La selección de Cuba logró una angustiosa victoria de 3-2 en entradas extras sobre Australia y se mantuvo con vida en el grupo C del Premier 12 de béisbol al sumar una victoria y una derrota.

    En el Gocheok Sky Dome de Seúl, el tercer bate de los caribeños, Yurisbel Gracial elevó a los jardines y empujó la carrera de la diferencia en el décimo acto en el que se aplicó la regla de 'muerte súbita', según la cual, en un marcador empatado tras nueve episodios cada equipo empieza la décima entrada con hombres en primera y segunda base sin out.

    Con Yosvany Alarcón y Erisbel Arruebarrueba en bases, el primero de la alineación Roel Santos bateó una rola por el cuadro con la que se llenaron las bases; William Saavedra falló en un elevado corto al jardín izquierdo después de lo cual Gracial, decidió el duelo con su batazo al centro.

    En la parte alta de esa entrada el relevista Liván Moinelo retiró al segundo bate David Kandilas en un elevado al campo corto y ponchó a Robert Glendinning y a Mitchel Nelson para llevarse la victoria sobre Joshua Tols.

    Fue un partido de dominio de los lanzadores. Joshua Guyer tiró juego perfecto ante los cubanos hasta que en la quinta entrada los del Caribe despertaron y tomaron ventaja de 2-0 con par de carreras impulsadas por sencillo de Yordanis Samón y rola de Yosvany Alarcón.

    Canadá empató en el sexto acto con un cuadrangular de Thimoty Kennelly, hit de Glendinning, boleto a Nelson y sencillo impulsor de Logan Wade.

    Después los pitchers relevistas dominaron y fue necesario jugar una entrada extra con reglas especiales para decidir el duelo.

    Por Cuba el receptor Yordanis Alarcón ligó de 4-3 con una carrera impulsada y por Australia, Kennelly se fue de 5-2 con un jonrón.

    En el horario nocturno de este jueves, Corea y Canadá jugarán en duelo de invictos y el viernes Australia enfrentará a Canadá y Cuba a Corea.

    Cuba crea primer centro de medicina 'ayurveda' con asistencia de la India

     Cache   

    La Habana, 6 nov (EFE).- Cuba inauguró este miércoles el primer centro de medicina 'ayurveda', sistema holístico y preventivo de salud originario de la India, que ha comenzado a funcionar en La Habana con el tratamiento a cinco pacientes cubanos con diversas enfermedades.

    La idea de crear este nuevo centro asistencial surge a partir de la firma de un memorando de entendimiento entre los Ministerios de Ayush de la India y el de Salud Pública (MINSAP) de Cuba, según explica hoy la web estatal Cubadebate.

    El uso del sistema 'ayurveda' -palabra que significa 'conocimiento de la vida'- se introduce en Cuba como otra de las modalidades de medicina natural y tradicional integradas al sistema de salud de la isla.

    Los primeros pacientes atendidos en la nueva institución sanitaria padecen diversos problemas de salud como cáncer, trastornos nerviosos y diabetes descompensada.

    El asesor responsable de la introducción de este sisema médico en el país caribeño, el profesor indio Srinivas Hejmadi Asharya, consideró que aunque no pueda decirse que la ayurveda pueda curar el cáncer u otras patologías graves, de lo que se trata es de integrar esta medicina a otros tratamientos de la medicina occidental, como otra manera de enriquecer el arsenal terapéutico existente en Cuba.

    'Puede haber muchos beneficios con la aplicación de los tratamientos del ayurveda. Estos pogresivamente se irán expandiendo a otros hospitales de Cuba y otras especialidades del ayurveda serán puestas al servicio de la población', refirió el especialista indio.

    El Centro Internacional de Salud 'La Pradera' alberga la nueva instalación que cuenta con 18 habitaciones, 12 locales de terapia, salas de espera y recuperación posterapéutica, así como un área para la elaboración de alimentos en función de las dietas propias de estos tratamientos.

    La presidenta de la Sociedad Cubana de Medicina Natural y Tradicional de Cuba, Evelyn González, indicó que el sistema ayurvédico 'viene desde un sustento filosófico propio, hasta varias modalidades de tratamiento, en las que los pacientes son internados, y se someten a cambios en su estilo de vida, a partir de una medicina personalizada'.

    La medicina ayurvédica se sumará a las 10 modalidades de Medicina Natural y Tradicional integradas al Sistema Nacional de Salud y está previsto que su aplicación se extienda a otras unidades de servicios sanitarios de la isla.

    Ordenan liberar a exfuncionarios del segundo gobierno de Alan García en Perú

     Cache   

    Lima, 6 nov (EFE).- La Primera Sala de Apelaciones del Poder Judicial de Perú ordenó este miércoles la liberación del exviceministro Jorge Cuba y del exfuncionario Edwin Luyo, investigados por los sobornos de la firma brasileña Odebrecht para adjudicarse el Metro de Lima en el segundo gobierno de Alan García (2006-2011).

    La resolución de la Sala de Apelaciones revocó una decisión anterior del juez Richard Concepción que había extendido el periodo de detención preventiva contra Cuba y Luyo, en prisión desde el 2017 por corrupción y lavado de activos, según informaron los diarios La República y El Comercio.

    El fiscal del caso, José Domingo Pérez, había pedido que se extienda su detención debido a las demoras que los mismos investigados había presuntamente provocado en el proceso, lo cual fue rechazado por la sala de apelaciones.

    Sin embargo, los investigados tendrán que presentarse cada siete días ante el juzgado para informar sobre sus actividades, no ausentarse de la ciudad y tampoco comunicarse con otros imputados en este caso, entre otras restricciones.

    ¿DE QUÉ SE LES ACUSA ?

    Cuba fue viceministro de Comunicaciones durante el segundo gobierno del fallecido exmandatario y Luyo participó en el comité de licitaciones del ministerio de Transportes durante la administración aprista.

    El fiscal Pérez ha pedido hasta 12 años de prisión para los acusados como receptores de dinero de Odebrecht, a cambio de favorecer a la empresa en el proceso de adjudicación.

    El exdirector de contratos de Odebrecht Carlos Nostre declaró el año pasado al fiscal Pérez que la constructora peruana Graña y Montero, que fue socia con Odebrecht en Perú, dio parte de sus utilidades en la construcción de la Línea 1 del Metro para pagar sobornos al entonces viceministro Cuba.

    Nostre agregó que el total del soborno a Cuba fue de 20 millones de dólares, una cifra que difiere de los 8,1 millones de dólares que señaló el exapoderado de Odebrecht en Perú, Jorge Barata por esta obra.

    CUBA RESPONSABILIZÓ A GARCÍA

    El exfuncionario, quien cumplía prisión preventiva desde enero de 2017 por este caso, dijo a la Fiscalía que los actores políticos encargados de generar el marco legal y facilitar la ejecución de la obra del Metro de Lima fueron Alan García (1985-1990 y 2006-2011) y el entonces ministro Enrique Cornejo.

    'Ellos gestionaron y aprobaron decretos de urgencia, decretos supremos y resoluciones ministeriales que ayudaron a Odebrecht', señaló.

    GARCIA PIDIÓ PENA MÁXIMA PARA CUBA

    Tras esas declaraciones, el expresidente García, que se suicidó en abril pasado cuando iba a ser detenido preventivamente por los presuntos aportes recibidos de Odebrecht, pidió entonces 'la pena más alta' para Cuba.

    'Al corrupto Cuba debe imponérsele la pena más alta por exigir sobornos. Dañó la imagen de la obra más importante hecha en favor del pueblo: el Tren Eléctrico', señaló García en su cuenta de Twitter hace un año.

    Las investigaciones de la fiscalía peruana contra Odebrecht comenzaron siguiendo los sobornos que admitió haber pagado para adjudicarse varias obras de infraestructura en el país durante los gobiernos de Alejandro Toledo, Alan García y Ollanta Humala, y han continuado con los presuntos aportes para las campañas electorales de Keiko Fujimori, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski y Susana Villarán, entre otros líderes políticos.EFE


              

    Gloria Estefan: Es suficiente con Jennifer López y Shakira en el Super Bowl

     Cache   

    Miami, 6 nov (EFE).- La cantante Gloria Estefan calificó de 'increíble' la participación en febrero próximo de Jennifer López y Shakira en el espectáculo musical de medio tiempo del Super Bowl LIV, la final del torneo de fútbol americano en Estados Unidos, al señalar que no era necesaria su presencia.

    'Esas mujeres van a encender el escenario, porque esas mujeres están calientes', manifestó la cantante al canal Entertainment Tonight.

    '¿Cuál sería la necesidad?', preguntó la cubano-estadounidense al rechazar el ofrecimiento de su participación en la gran final de la NFL, que organiza por sexta vez la ciudad de Miami, al sur de Florida, donde reside con su esposo, el productor y músico cubano-estadounidense Emilio Estefan.

    'Ya tienes dos cabezas de cartel increíbles', manifestó la cantante según el canal. 'Ellas son las perfectas', agregó.

    Shakira y la diva neoyorquina Jennifer López serán la atracción musical del medio tiempo del partido, que se celebrará en el estadio Hard Rock de Miami el próximo 2 de febrero.

    La cantante, compositora y actriz cubano-estadounidense además se mostró satisfecha de haber tenido ese honor en dos ocasiones, en 1992 y 1999, en las ciudades de Minneapolis y Miami, respectivamente.

    'Tuve la suerte de haberlo hecho dos veces', manifestó la cantautora de 62 años.

    La actuación del medio tiempo del Super Bowl es un acontecimiento mundial, que atrae tanta atención como el partido en sí y es considerado uno de los mayores eventos televisivos del planeta, con 98,9 millones de televidentes nada más en Estados Unidos.

    López y Shakira serán las primeras artistas en actuar en el evento desde que la liga se asoció con Roc Nation, la compañía de entretenimiento fundada por el rapero, empresario y activista Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter.

    Entertainment Tonight informó de que Jay Z llamó a Emilio Estefan para decirle que estaría en Miami para el Super Bowl y ver si Gloria quería actuar.

    'Gloria dijo: No voy al Super Bowl. ¡No quiero hacerlo!', señaló Emilio.

    'Vamos. ¿Esas cosas de alto estrés? Eso es algo de mucho estrés. Las he hecho. He hecho dos', respondió Gloria.

    'Estoy realmente emocionada por Shakira y J-Lo que van a estar encendiendo el escenario, porque esas mujeres están calientes', agregó Gloria. EFE


              

    Un ministro de Bolsonaro representará a Brasil en la investidura de Fernández

     Cache   

    Brasilia, 6 nov (EFE).- El ministro de la Ciudadanía de Brasil, Osmar Terra, representará al presidente Jair Bolsonaro en la investidura del mandatario electo de Argentina, Alberto Fernández, confirmó este miércoles el portavoz de la Presidencia, Otávio Rêgo Barros.

    Tras la victoria de Fernández en las urnas, Bolsonaro anunció que no pretendía felicitarle y adelantó que tampoco estará presente en su investidura, prevista para el próximo 10 de diciembre.

    En un primer momento se llegó a conjeturar que Bolsonaro sería representado por el vicepresidente Hamilton Mourao, pero el portavoz de la Presidencia confirmó la tarde de este miércoles que Osmar Terra será el encargado de viajar a Buenos Aires.

    Rêgo Barros subrayó que el ministro de la Ciudadanía es un 'ciudadano' de Río Grande do Sul, estado fronterizo con Uruguay y Argentina, y habla un 'castellano fluido'.

    'Es un representante digno de nuestro país, de nuestra diplomacia, de nuestras relaciones bilaterales con Argentina', resaltó el portavoz.

    De esa forma, será la primera vez desde 2003 que un jefe de Estado brasileño no participa en la toma de posesión de un presidente de Argentina, el tercer socio comercial de Brasil a nivel mundial y el primero en la región.

    Durante la campaña electoral, Bolsonaro, líder de la ultraderecha brasileña, profirió duras críticas contra Fernández, a quien llegó a calificar de 'bandido de izquierdas', y expresó explícitamente su apoyo al actual presidente, Mauricio Macri, derrotado en las urnas.

    También descalificó a la exmandataria Cristina Fernández, electa vicepresidenta en la fórmula encabezada por Fernández, de quien ha dicho en forma despectiva que pertenece 'al mismo grupo que Lula', el venezolano Nicolás Maduro y el fallecido cubano Fidel Castro, entre muchos otros líderes de izquierdas latinoamericanos.

    La posición asumida por Bolsonaro en relación a las elecciones en Argentina ha sembrado temores sobre la forma en que se relacionarán ambos Gobiernos a partir de diciembre, sobre todo por su condición de socios estratégicos y miembros del Mercosur, bloque que también integran Uruguay y Paraguay.

    Asimismo, este miércoles, una comisión del Parlamento brasileño aprobó una moción de censura contra el presidente electo de Argentina, quien ha pedido la libertad del exmandatario Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, preso por corrupción.

    La resolución se adoptó en la Comisión de Relaciones Exteriores de la Cámara baja, que preside el diputado Eduardo Bolsonaro, hijo del mandatario, y fue presentada por el diputado Luiz Philippe de Orleans y Bragança, miembro de la antigua familia real brasileña.

    El documento aprobado dice que Fernández ha demostrado un nulo 'respeto por las decisiones de las instituciones judiciales del Estado brasileño' y faltó al 'decoro internacional, que se precia por las buenas relaciones diplomáticas', con su 'activismo político en cuestiones internas de Brasil'.

    Comisión parlamentaria censura el apoyo de presidente electo argentino a Lula

     Cache   

    Brasilia, 6 nov (EFE).- Una comisión del Parlamento brasileño aprobó este miércoles una moción de censura contra el presidente electo de Argentina, Alberto Fernández, quien ha pedido la libertad del exmandatario Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, preso por corrupción.

    La resolución se adoptó en la Comisión de Relaciones Exteriores de la Cámara baja, que preside el diputado Eduardo Bolsonaro, hijo del presidente Jair Bolsonaro, líder de la ultraderecha y quien se ha negado a felicitar al peronista Fernández por su victoria en las urnas.

    La moción, sin embargo, fue presentada por el diputado Luiz Philippe de Orleans y Bragança, miembro de la antigua familia real brasileña, y consigna el 'repudio' de esa comisión parlamentaria a la defensa que el mandatario electo argentino ha hecho de Lula, a quien incluso visitó en la cárcel poco antes de los comicios.

    El documento aprobado dice que Fernández ha demostrado un nulo 'respeto por las decisiones de las instituciones judiciales del Estado brasileño' y faltó al 'decoro internacional, que se precia por las buenas relaciones diplomáticas', con su 'activismo político en cuestiones internas de Brasil'.

    El presidente Bolsonaro ha mantenido una línea crítica y dura contra Fernández ya desde la campaña electoral, período en el que se refirió al ahora mandatario electo como 'bandido de izquierdas'.

    También ha descalificado a la exmandataria Cristina Fernández, electa vicepresidenta en la fórmula encabezada por Fernández, de quien ha dicho en forma despectiva que pertenece 'al mismo grupo que Lula', el venezolano Nicolás Maduro y el fallecido cubano Fidel Castro, entre muchos otros líderes de izquierdas latinoamericanos.

    Tras la victoria de Fernández en las urnas, Bolsonaro anunció que no pretendía felicitarlo y adelantó que tampoco estará presente en su investidura, prevista para el próximo 10 de diciembre, aunque se conjetura que sería representado por el vicepresidente, Hamilton Mourao, lo cual no ha sido confirmado en forma oficial.

    A esos duros comentarios sobre la fórmula que triunfó en las elecciones argentinas se sumó el diputado Eduardo Bolsonaro, quien la semana pasada descalificó en forma personal a Estanislao Fernández, hijo del presidente electo y drag queen.

    'Observación: eso no es un meme', escribió el hijo de Bolsonaro en su cuenta en Twitter, junto a una foto de Estanislao, vestido de drag, y que acompañó con una suya posando junto un arsenal de armas, cuya legalización el Gobierno de su padre defiende con fervor.

    La posición asumida por Bolsonaro en relación a las elecciones en Argentina ha sembrado temores sobre la forma en que se relacionarán ambos Gobiernos a partir de diciembre, sobre todo por su condición de socios estratégicos y miembros del Mercosur, bloque que también integran Uruguay y Paraguay.

    Baja presencia de negocios de EEUU en feria cubana

     Cache   

    LA HABANA (AP) — La Feria Internacional de Comercio de La Habana es donde Cuba trata de poner el mejor rostro a su atribulada economía.

    Esta semana, hay restaurantes estatales con comida fresca, muestras de motocicletas eléctricas de Panamá y decenas de compañías del gobierno ofreciendo productos desde habanos y ron hasta langosta y camarón de cultivo.

    Un punto sombrío este año es la sección de Estados Unidos, donde la presencia se ha reducido de decenas de compañías durante la presidencia de Barack Obama a un puñado. Algunos dicen que pudiera no soportar otro año de sanciones del gobierno de Donald Trump.

    Luego que el entonces presidente Obama anunció en el 2014 una mejora de relaciones con Cuba, la feria comercial anual se inundó de empresarios estadounidenses en busca de oportunidades. Había decenas de compañías estadounidenses, funcionarios de los estados y asociaciones, incluyendo la Cámara de Comercio de Estados Unidos. Empresarios cubano-estadounidenses recorrían los pasillos, discutiendo la posibilidad de regresar a la isla tras décadas de exilio.

    Pero ese auge sin precedentes no duró mucho, pues las compañías comenzaron a darse cuenta de las dificultades de hacer negocios en Cuba, donde la burocracia estatal centralizada debe autorizar todas las inversiones extranjeras y las empresas estadounidenses son especialmente sensibles.

    La presencia estadounidense comenzó a reducirse de lleno luego del anuncio del presidente Trump en el 2017 de que iba a revertir la apertura hacia Cuba, seguido de dos años de crecientes sanciones a la isla y su aliado estrecho Venezuela.

    Este año, Cuba ha tenido más dificultades para hacer negocios a nivel internacional. Estados Unidos está presionando a bancos a cortar lazos con la isla y sancionando a los buques que transportan petróleo desde Venezuela.

    Hay escasez esporádica de productos comunes, gasolina y diésel y la carencia de efectivo por el gobierno se ha empeorado.

    Jay Brickman, vicepresidente de servicios para Cuba de Crowley Maritime, una importante empresa de embarques con sede en Florida, dijo que su compañía ha registrado una caída de 20% en sus negocios en la isla este año.

    Una excepción del embargo comercial de Estados Unidos a Cuba les permite a las empresas estadounidenses venderle alimentos al gobierno en La Habana y Crowley transporta la mayoría de los frijoles de soya, los pollos y otros productos agrícolas que viajan de Estados Unidos a Cuba.

    Mirando a la mayormente vacía sección de Estados Unidos del Pabellón 7 en ExpoCuba, un centro de convenciones en las afueras de la capital, Brickman dijo que recordaba con afecto su primera feria de La Habana, en el 2001, luego que Washington legalizó las exportaciones de productos agrícolas a Cuba.

    Dijo que había centenares de compañías estadounidenses, el entonces gobernador de Minnesota Jesse Ventura e incluso vacas llevadas para convencer a Cuba de los beneficios del ganado estadounidense.

    Con la excepción de los años de Obama, las últimas dos décadas con cumplieron con esa promesa, dijo Brinckman.

    'Mucho más reflujo que flujo”, dijo. “El espíritu de todo eso comenzó a desvanecerse”.

    Durante la presidencia de Trump, Cuba ha estado tratando de adquirir productos agrícolas de otros países, aparte de Estados Unidos, y los negocios de Crowley en Cuba han caído hasta el punto donde está en dudas su sostenibilidad.

    'Nuestro compromiso es continuar estando aquí mientras sea económicamente posible”, dijo.

    Esta semana, miles de cubanos y extranjeros acudieron a los pabellones con secciones de España, Portugal, Venezuela y otros países. Además de Crowley, la sección estadounidense en la feria tenía un par de firmas exportadores-importadoras basadas en Florida y una consultoría con sede en Guatemala que trabaja con la asociación de huevos y aves de corral de Estados Unidos.

    Los estantes de la Alabama State Port Association y otros pocos representantes estadounidenses estaban vacíos el martes por la tarde, un día después de la inauguración.

    El funcionario estadounidense de mayor rango en la feria parecía ser la secretaria de Agricultura de Virginia, Bettina Ring, al frente de una pequeña delegación que ella dijo mostraba el compromiso de su estado para vender cantidades moderadas de soya y pollo a Cuba.

    Miembros de la delegación dijeron que dada la incertidumbre del comercio internacional, Virginia valora las compras regulares por Cuba de productos agrarios del estado.

    'Cuba ha sido un mercado confiable”, dijo la vocera Stephanie Agree. 'Tenemos que mantener los amigos que tenemos”.


              

    En medio de la crisis, el béisbol venezolano persevera

     Cache   

    CARACAS (AP) — María Graciela Briceño y sus dos de sus mejores amigas se acomodaron en sus asientos detrás del plato en el estadio de béisbol de la capital venezolana sabiendo que el juego inaugural de esta temporada no estaría a la altura de los últimos años.

    Una crisis cada vez más profunda ha dejado a su país en ruinas, y una reciente medida del gobierno del presidente estadounidense Donald Trump ha impedido que los jugadores afiliados a las Grandes Ligas salten al terreno, provocando que el campeonato pierda el brillo de antaño.

    Briceño, una maquilladora de 30 años, dijo que poco la mantendría alejada del estadio.

    “Sabía que no iba a ser una temporada como las que estamos acostumbrados', dijo.

    En Venezuela, la presencia femenina en los estadios es masiva, casi a la par de los hombres, y se cuentan entre los que celebran con euforia cada jugada.

    'Sigo amando el béisbol, sigo estando en Venezuela y en Caracas y no hay manera en la cual uno pueda evitar venir aunque estén siendo las peores condiciones”, agregó.

    La popular Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional comenzó su temporada el martes con cientos de fanáticos que se congregaron en el estadio Universitario de Caracas y en otras partes de este país sudamericano devastado por la crisis. Los tiempos difíciles también han acortado la temporada en un tercio de sus juegos y comenzó semanas tarde.

    En Venezuela, sin embargo, el béisbol local sigue siendo una pasión. Durante unas horas es un oasis para las personas que se sienten abrumadas por el diario vivir. Es un lugar seguro para beber cerveza, lanzar insultos a los jugadores y desahogarse.

    También es para unos pocos afortunados. El lujo de una noche de diversión para una pareja que compra boletos, cerveza y perritos calientes cuesta fácilmente el doble del salario mínimo mensual equivalente a los 15 dólares que ganan la mayoría de los venezolanos.

    Esta temporada llega al final de un año tumultuoso para los venezolanos. El país fue remecido por multitudinarias protestas callejeras en respaldo al líder opositor Juan Guaidó, quien prometió derrocar a Maduro. En vano, Guaidó clamó por un alzamiento militar después de violentos enfrentamientos entre ciudadanos y fuerzas de seguridad del gobierno. Una falla eléctrica masiva en marzo dejó a la mayoría de la nación sin luz ni agua durante días. La crisis de Venezuela no tiene un final a la vista.

    La apertura del campeonato de béisbol, sin embargo, trajo algo de esparcimiento. Los Leones recibieron en su casa de Caracas a los Tigres de Aragua. A pesar de un notable número de asientos vacíos, el juego no decepcionó. Los Tigres se impusieron por 6-3.

    'Somos los mejores fanáticos del mundo', dijo Jesús Lezama, un fanático de 100 años, cuyo nombre lleva la Copa de la presente edición del torneo. Lezama fue homenajeado en el diamante antes del primer lanzamiento por sus años de dedicación. Luego, los jugadores trotaron para escuchar música de salsa. “¡Play Ball!”, gritó el locutor.

    Los jugadores de las Grandes Ligas estuvieron notablemente ausentes, dijeron muchos fanáticos. A lo largo de su historia, la liga de invierno de Venezuela atrajo a luminarias como Bob Gibson, Barry Bonds y Pete Rose. Seis jugadores en la reciente Serie Mundial eran venezolanos, sobresaliendo José Altuve de los Astros de Houston.

    El torneo invernal era aprovechado por los peloteros de las mayores para pulir sus habilidades durante el receso de temporada, y el béisbol es parte del tejido nacional de Venezuela.

    La ausencia se debió a las amplias sanciones de la Casa Blanca con el objetivo de obligar a Maduro a abandonar el poder. Las medidas financieras prohíben a las personas y compañías estadounidenses tratar con el gobierno de Maduro, como la empresa petrolera estatal PDVSA, que por años fue uno de los más importantes patrocinadores de la liga de béisbol.

    Giuseppe Palmisano, presidente de la LVBP, pasó el día de apertura en Miami tratando de llegar a un acuerdo con Grandes Ligas y el gobierno de los Estados Unidos para rescatar la temporada. Dijo que la liga venezolana había abandonado su patrocinio de PDVSA, apoyándose más en empresas privadas que durante años han patrocinado la liga, como Coca-Cola, Toyota y el gigante venezolano de alimentos y cerveza Polar.

    Palmisano dijo que esperaba que las circunstancias cambiaran pronto para que los jugadores de la MLB pudieran jugar más adelante en la temporada.

    Horas antes del primer lanzamiento el martes, funcionarios estadounidenses anunciaron cambios en sus sanciones a Venezuela, los que permiten que los ciudadanos estadounidenses y residentes en ese país reciban remuneraciones y paguen sus impuestos al gobierno de Venezuela sin violar las leyes de Estados Unidos.

    La MLB, empero, no respondió de inmediato si habría un cambio en su posición.

    “Sí, estamos conscientes de que la vistosidad del juego no va a ser la misma”, dijo Palmisano en una entrevista con la AP realizada en un hotel de la ciudad de Doral, donde vive una de las comunidades venezolanas más numerosas del sur de la Florida.

    Pero el tira y afloja afuera del país quedó en segundo plano bajo las luces deslumbrantes del estadio de Caracas. Los fanáticos, ataviados con las franelas de sus equipos, se metían con los jugadores del equipo contrario y vitoreaban entusiastas jugadas dramáticas. Entre las entradas se abalanzaron para obtener camisetas gratis, lanzadas con pistolas de aire a las tribunas.

    Yadir Drake, un cubano de 29 años que juega como jardinero de los Tigres, comentó que los partidos en Venezuela tendrán un béisbol más agresivo debido a la ausencia de peloteros con contratos de MLB, haciéndoles más entretenidos para el fanático.

    Drake es uno de varias docenas de extranjeros enrolados para esta temporada, la mayoría procedente de la República Dominicana. Drake dijo que cuando él y los otros jugadores pisan el diamante, la política es lo último en lo que piensan, especialmente cuando los fanáticos comienzan a gritar.

    “Sabes que la afición se va a meter contigo y esa de las tantas cosas que te ayudan”, expresó el cubano. “Te animan a seguir jugando el béisbol y jugarlo agresivamente”.

    La crisis económica frena la inversión extranjera en Cuba

     Cache   

    La Habana, 6 nov (EFE).- Cuba captó en el último año más de 1.700 millones de dólares en un total de 25 nuevos proyectos de inversión extranjera, informó este miércoles el ministro de Comercio Exterior, Rodrigo Malmierca, una cifra discreta que atribuyó a la 'situación compleja' de la economía del país.

    Malmierca ofreció el dato, correspondiente al período desde octubre de 2018 hasta la fecha, durante la presentación de la nueva cartera de negocios para capital extranjero en la Feria Internacional de La Habana (Fihav 2019), la mayor bolsa comercial de la isla.

    En el período precedente (octubre de 2017 a octubre de 2018) la cifra fue de 1.500 millones y 40 nuevos negocios, mientras en los últimos dos años la isla ha venido captando un promedio de alrededor de 2.000 millones de dólares en capital foráneo, un flujo que el Gobierno considera vital para mantener a flote la economía.

    El ministro de Comercio Exterior presentó ante actuales y posibles inversores presentes en la Fihav la Cartera de Oportunidades de Cuba 2019-2020, que comprende 460 proyectos, 47 de ellos en la Zona Especial de Desarrollo Mariel (ZEDM), el principal proyecto con el que La Habana trata de atraer inversión extranjera.

    Esto sucede en un momento de palpable crisis económica en Cuba, donde desde hace más de un mes hay interrupciones en el suministro de combustible y el Gobierno ha puesto en marcha un plan de choque para impedir la fuga de divisas y recaudar moneda extranjera.

    En este sentido, Malmierca reiteró que la isla ofrece seguridad a los inversores extranjeros a pesar de la delicada situación, que atribuyó al endurecimiento del embargo por parte de la actual Administración de EE.UU. bajo el mandato del presidente Donald Trump.

    En el último año Trump ha aplicado diversas sanciones a Cuba, como prohibir los viajes en crucero, permitir las demandas contra terceros por las propiedades en la isla confiscadas tras la Revolución de 1959 y, más recientemente, restringir los vuelos a la isla y sus importaciones de productos que integren componentes estadounidenses.

    A esto se suma la prolongada crisis en Venezuela, principal aliado político, energético y económico de Cuba, y la endémica ineficiencia de la economía planificada de la isla, cuyas empresas se encuentran lastradas por la burocracia, falta de productividad y reducidos salarios.

    Empresas de 36 países tienen inversiones en Cuba, siendo las españolas las más numerosas, en diversos sectores como el turismo los hidrocarburos, la construcción o el agroalimentario.

    También se ofreció este miércoles un repaso de la situación de la Zona Especial de Desarrollo del Mariel, que tras una reciente incorporación ya suma 50 negocios aprobados, de los cuales 26 ya operan y el resto se encuentran en proyecto, por un valor de 2.300 millones de dólares, según Ana Teresa Igarza, directora general de la ZEDM.

    Estos negocios, la mayoría empresas de capital 100 % extranjero, abarcan a corporaciones de 21 países (España también es el que más suma con 9 empresas) y generan 7.476 empleos directos, según Igarza.

    Iniciada el 4 de noviembre en el recinto ferial Expocuba al sureste de La Habana, la edición 37 cuenta con la participación de unos 60 países, y se extenderá hasta el viernes. EFE


              

    Organizaciones colombianas promueven huelga nacional el 21 de noviembre

     Cache   

    Bogotá, 6 nov (EFE).- Sindicatos, indígenas y sectores sociales colombianos convocaron a una huelga nacional el próximo 21 de noviembre para, según dijeron este miércoles, rechazar supuestas reformas al régimen de pensiones y a la política económica del Gobierno, con lo que esperan poner 'a tono' al país con las protestas del continente.

    El senador Wilson Arias, del izquierdista Polo Democrático Alternativo (PDA), aseguró hoy en una rueda de prensa que la jornada de protesta es contra 'el paquetazo del presidente Iván Duque, que busca reformas que van en contra de las clases menos favorecidas'.

    Las movilizaciones serán 'apenas para ponernos a tono con lo que es una agresión continental' dijo Arias al hacer referencia a las protestas que en las últimas semanas han sacudido a países como Chile y Ecuador.

    Chile vive desde el pasado 18 de octubre un estallido social con masivas manifestaciones, así como focos de violencia y disturbios que han sido reprimidos y que se han cobrado la vida de al menos 20 personas.

    También han ocurrido protestas por distintos motivos en Ecuador, Panamá y Bolivia.

    RAZONES DE LA HUELGA

    Según el congresista, actualmente 2,4 de los 48,2 millones de colombianos 'pasan hambre' y más de 600.000 personas han perdido su empleo en el último año.

    Según las centrales obreras, el paro del 21 de noviembre se debe a que el Gobierno aplica políticas dictadas por organismos internacionales como el Banco Mundial y la Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económicos (OCDE) que, en su opinión, perjudican a los trabajadores.

    El presidente de la Central Unitaria de Trabajadores (CUT), Diógenes Orjuela, explicó que con las supuestas reformas se afecta la estabilidad laboral y se busca que la gente no pueda acceder a la pensión.

    'Es una política regresiva en todos los órdenes', dijo el dirigente sindical, quien recordó que también se tramita en el Congreso una reforma tributaria que le da más gabelas a las empresas.

    Sin embargo, Duque ha manifestado en varias ocasiones que no apoya las propuestas para aumentar la edad de jubilación o el porcentaje que hoy se cotiza para tener una pensión.

    'Yo no comparto esa tesis porque nosotros queremos que las personas puedan tener una pensión digna en la edad que corresponde', dijo el pasado sábado sobre las jubilaciones que en Colombia son a los 57 años para las mujeres y 62 para los hombres.

    TOMA DE LAS CALLES

    El senador Gustavo Bolívar, de la Lista de la Decencia, defendió la huelga y aseguró que se justifica porque el país 'vive un momento de desmoronamiento económico, social, de seguridad, que nos convierte en un imperativo moral el salir a las calles'.

    Indicó que esta protesta puede 'emular a nuestros amigos de la región como lo hicieron recientemente en Puerto Rico, como lo hicieron en Ecuador, como lo hicieron en Chile y en Argentina'.

    El legislador dijo que espera que el paro 'se mantenga en el tiempo hasta que todos los participantes podamos lograr nuestras aspiraciones', que no precisó.

    Recordó que en Colombia, a diferencia de Chile, las reformas se han realizado 'de a poco' y que incluso el Gobierno ha presentado tres reformas tributarias en apenas 18 meses.

    NI CUBA NI VENEZUELA

    Por su parte el senador de izquierdas Iván Cepeda, del PDA, dijo que la huelga se dará en un contexto regional porque 'hay movilizaciones en otros países de Latinoamérica'.

    Agregó que esta protesta 'no puede ser interpretada como una especie de confabulación que proviene de Cuba y Venezuela, como se ha querido presentar, sino que es evidente que hay una crisis profunda'.

    'Llegó la hora de el Gobierno haga una muy seria reflexión y haga un cambio de su política', añadió.

    LOS MAESTROS

    El presidente de la Federación Colombiana de Trabajadores de la Educación (Fecode), Nelson Alarcón, dijo que los maestros se suman al paro porque 'la política (de Duque) es regresiva, perversa'.

    Según Alarcón, en los últimos 25 años han sido asesinados en el país más de 1.100 profesores y este año van diez. EFE


              

    El 15 % de hombres y 33 % de mujeres no usan condón en su primera relación sexual

     Cache   

    El uso del condón en América Latina no es una práctica usual debido a la desinformación y falta de cultura para su utilización, principalmente en la población joven, advirtieron este miércoles especialistas.

    'Esto explica por qué 15 % de hombres y 33 % de mujeres no usan condón en su primera relación sexual' en América Latina, explicó a Efe el doctor Alfonso Carrera.

    El especialista explicó que debido a esto, se estima que 30 % de las personas han padecido o padecerán una infección de transmisión sexual (ITS) antes de los 30 años.

    Señaló que, de acuerdo con la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), diariamente en el mundo un millón de personas adquieren una infección de transmisión sexual.

    El especialista señaló que esto es preocupante ya que los tratamientos para ITS son muy caros, por ejemplo, tan solo la terapia para el Virus de Inmunodeficiencia Humana (VIH) tiene un costo promedio de 150,000 pesos anuales (unos 7,812 dólares).

    Ana Karina de la Vega, directora de la asociación civil DKT, señaló que el problema sobre el uso del uso del condón es grave en México debido a que el 60 % de los adolescentes en la actualidad se ponen algún método anticonceptivo, como el Dispositivo Intrauterino (DIU) o el implante hormonal subdérmico, para no usar el condón.

    'No hay uso constante debido a los estigmas. Muchos piensan que con que una persona se vea limpia es suficiente, pero no se trata de higiene', aseguró.

    Explicó que una de las principales barreras en el país es la oferta de condones que existe, ya que pese a que hay casi 130 millones de habitantes, se consumen solo 180 millones de preservativos anualmente.

    Sin embargo, en países como Cuba, donde su población es de 10 millones de habitantes, dicha nación utiliza 180 millones de condones, y Brasil con 216 millones de personas cuenta con 650 millones de condones al año.

    'La educación sexual es una gran deuda que seguimos teniendo', manifestó De la Vega.

    Explicó que en México un problema es la concepción de que los padres no deben hablar de sexualidad a niños y jóvenes pues pueden incitarlos a iniciar su vida sexual.

    Sin embargo, manifestó, se tiene comprobado que cuando un joven está bien informado, con información no sesgada y científica, suele retrasar el inicio de su vida sexual o son más selectivos para empezar esta etapa.

    Mariana Alarcón, supervisora de programa educativo de Marie Stopes México, señaló que el condón más caro del mundo es aquel que no se usa.

    Explicó que no usarlo lleva a que se den infecciones de transmisión sexual y embarazos no deseados, lo que deriva en problemas de salud, baja calidad de vida, gastos extraordinarios y cambio en los planes de vida.

    Dijo que por ejemplo, el costo de tratamiento por Hepatitis C es de casi 150,000 pesos anuales (7.812 dólares), mientras que el cáncer cervicouterino, que es consecuencia muchas veces del Virus del Papiloma Humano (VPH), puede costar más de 91.000 pesos (4.745 dólares) en su primer año de tratamiento.

    En tanto, el gasto por un embarazo no planificado o no deseado puede ascender hasta los 1,7 millones de pesos (unos 88.650 dólares) en los primeros 12 años de vida de un hijo.

    Es por ello que los especialistas señalaron la importancia de contar con educación sexual laica y científica a edades tempranas y el uso de métodos anticonceptivos, que pueden ser más efectivos si se combinan de largo plazo con condón.


              

    El electorado latino en Florida da la espalda a Trump, según un sondeo

     Cache   

    Miami, 6 nov (EFE).- Casi la mitad del electorado latino de Florida (48 %) desaprueba el desempeño del presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, y si solo contaran sus votos en las elecciones de 2020, el gobernante sería derrotado por los demócratas Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders y Elizabeth Warren.

    La Iniciativa de la Encuesta sobre Economía y Negocios de la Universidad Florida Atlantic (FAU BEPI) reveló que el 65,7 % de los electores hispanos de Florida votaría por el exvicepresidente Biden frente al 34,3 % que lo haría por Trump.

    Si la elección es entre la senadora Warren y Trump, el resultado es 64,9 % frente a 35,1 %, y si el rival es el también senador Sanders, la cuenta es 62,1 % frente a 37,9 %.

    La encuesta revela que un 48 % de los hispanos de Florida desaprueba a Trump, un 31 % lo aprueba y un 21 % no sabe o no contesta.

    En el caso de los puertorriqueños radicados en este estado, un 64 % está descontento con Trump, al que se acusa de no haber prestado suficiente ayuda a Puerto Rico cuando fue asolado por el huracán María en 2017.

    Por el contrario, en el caso de los cubanos, el 47 % está a favor de un presidente que ha endurecido la política hacia el régimen de Cuba.

    BEPI entrevistó para este sondeo a 600 hispanos registrados como votantes, una parte a través de internet y otra por teléfono fijo, del 30 de octubre al 2 de noviembre.

    La encuesta, que tiene un margen de error de 3,9 %, muestra que el apoyo de los hispanos al gobernador Ron DeSantis, seguidor de Trump, es de un 36 %, frente a un 23 % de opiniones desfavorables y un 34 % de no respuestas.

    De los 600 encuestados, 152 se declararon republicanos y un 77 % de ellos dijo que votaría por Trump en unas elecciones primarias de su partido.

    De los 268 demócratas, un 27 % votaría por el senador Sanders, un 21 % por Biden y un 20 % por la senadora Warren.

    El único latino entre los aspirantes a la nominación por el Partido Demócrata, el ex secretario de Vivienda Julián Castro, es el escogido por el 5 % de los encuestados.

    Florida, con un 26 % de población hispana, es un estado clave en las elecciones presidenciales, no solo porque brinda un importante número de votos en el Colegio Electoral, que es donde al final se decide quién es el ganador, sino porque no tiene un patrón de voto fijo y lo mismo puede inclinarse por los republicanos que por los demócratas.

    En 2012 votó por Barack Obama y en 2016 por Trump. EFE


              

    Exiliados cubanos piden en España que los reyes no viajen a la isla

     Cache   

    Madrid, 6 nov (EFE).- Un grupo de exiliados cubanos residentes en España se concentró este miércoles ante el Ministerio de Exteriores para pedir la suspensión del viaje oficial de los reyes de España a Cuba, previsto para el próximo lunes.

    El viaje real 'va a permitir que se siga legitimando al régimen castrista', más aún porque 'no está prevista ninguna reunión con la disidencia' política cubana, señaló en declaraciones a Efe Lázaro Mireles, coordinador en España del Movimiento Acciones por la Democracia.

    Unas 25 personas participaron en la protesta, durante la cual Mireles aseguró que se presentó una petición en el Ministerio para que se suspenda la visita de los reyes, destinada a participar en la conmemoración del quinto centenario de la fundación de La Habana.

    Mireles consideró que el viaje de los reyes se puede suspender, pese a la cercanía de las fechas, 'si hay voluntad política', a la vez que destacó que se haya programado para un día después de las elecciones generales que España celebra el próximo domingo.

    Otras organizaciones cubanas en España han manifestado en el pasado su oposición a la visita real, como el Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos, que criticó que esa decisión 'pasa por alto la violación sistemática de los derechos y las libertades' en la isla. EFE


              

    La comunidad internacional apoya a Cuba contra el embargo de Estados Unidos

     Cache   

    Naciones Unidas, 6 nov (EFE).- La comunidad internacional apoyó este miércoles a Cuba en su condena del embargo impuesto por Estados Unidos a la isla, durante una sesión de la Asamblea General de la ONU previa a la votación de la resolución anual no vinculante contra las sanciones estadounidenses.

    Una treintena de países y de representantes de bloques regionales, como el grupo de los 77 y China, el Grupo Africano, el Movimiento de Países no Alineados, la Organización de la Cooperación Islámica o la Comunidad caribeña CARICOM mostraron su apoyo a la resolución: 'Necesidad de acabar con el embargo económico, comercial y financiero impuesto por Estados Unidos de América a Cuba'.

    La discusión de hoy precede a su votación, prevista para la sesión de mañana.

    Desde 1992, la abrumadora mayoría de los 193 Estados miembros de Naciones Unidas han apoyado a la Habana en sus reclamaciones, con la excepción de Estados Unidos e Israel que votaron en contra y de Ucrania y Moldavia que, el año pasado, no ejercieron su derecho a voto.

    En 2018, Estados Unidos intentó, sin éxito, incluir enmiendas a la resolución, una iniciativa a la que ha renunciado este año.

    No obstante, se espera que la representante permanente en la ONU, Kelly Craft, intervenga mañana antes de la votación.

    'México reitera su claro y firme rechazo a las acciones unilaterales contra Cuba, incluida la imposición durante ya más de cinco décadas del bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero que contradice al derecho internacional', dijo en su intervención el embajador mexicano en la ONU, Juan Ramón de la Fuente.

    Un rechazo que, uno tras otro, fueron mostrando los más de treinta oradores que participaron en la sesión de hoy.

    El país con más alta representación que tomó la palabra fue Rusia, cuyo viceministro de Asuntos Exteriores, Alexander Pankin, mostró su solidaridad con Cuba y cargó contra las políticas de Washington.

    'Repudiamos la campaña anticubana de sanciones liderada por los EE.UU., esta cuestión (...) es una violación prolongada burda del derecho internacional por parte de Washington ante todos los principios básicos de la carta de Naciones Unidas', dijo.

    Pankin también vinculó las presiones estadounidenses al apoyo cubano al Gobierno del presidente venezolano, Nicolás Maduro.

    'La guerra de sanciones ha sido desencadenada por Washington para lograr su objetivo general: derrocar al liderazgo cubano que no le conviene y castigarlo por su postura de principios, de apoyo al presidente elegido legítimamente en Venezuela, el señor Maduro', agregó el político ruso.

    Por su parte, la misión de EE.UU. en Naciones Unidas insistió en varios mensajes difundidos a través de Twitter en que 'los defectos fundamentales de la economía Cubana son culpa suya'.

    La misión estadounidense aseguró, contra las afirmaciones de las consecuencias negativas del embargo en la población cubana, que el 'embargo permite la exportación a Cuba de comida estadounidense, medicina y equipos médicos' y que EE.UU. autorizó la exportación de comida y productos agrícolas desde 2018 por valor de 12.000 millones de dólares.

    Varios países subrayaron que el embargo le ha supuesto a Cuba pérdidas multimillonarias.

    El pasado lunes, el canciller cubano, Bruno Rodríguez, que estuvo presente en la sesión de la Asamblea General de hoy, denunció 'presiones' de Estados Unidos a países latinoamericanos para obtener su voto contra el proyecto de resolución, que Cuba presenta cada año para condenar el embargo impuesto por Washington a la isla.

    En medio de la crisis, el béisbol venezolano persevera

     Cache   

    CARACAS (AP) — María Graciela Briceño y sus dos de sus mejores amigas se acomodaron en sus asientos detrás del plato en el estadio de béisbol de la capital venezolana sabiendo que el juego inaugural de esta temporada no estaría a la altura de los últimos años.

    Una crisis cada vez más profunda ha dejado a su país en ruinas, y una reciente medida del gobierno del presidente estadounidense Donald Trump ha impedido que los jugadores afiliados a las Grandes Ligas salten al terreno, provocando que el campeonato pierda el brillo de antaño.

    Briceño, una maquilladora de 30 años, dijo que poco la mantendría alejada del estadio.

    “Sabía que no iba a ser una temporada como las que estamos acostumbrados', dijo.

    En Venezuela, la presencia femenina en los estadios es masiva, casi a la par de los hombres, y se cuentan entre los que celebran con euforia cada jugada.

    'Sigo amando el béisbol, sigo estando en Venezuela y en Caracas y no hay manera en la cual uno pueda evitar venir aunque estén siendo las peores condiciones”, agregó.

    La popular Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional comenzó su temporada el martes con cientos de fanáticos que se congregaron en el estadio Universitario de Caracas y en otras partes de este país sudamericano devastado por la crisis. Los tiempos difíciles también han acortado la temporada en un tercio de sus juegos y comenzó semanas tarde.

    En Venezuela, sin embargo, el béisbol local sigue siendo una pasión. Durante unas horas es un oasis para las personas que se sienten abrumadas por el diario vivir. Es un lugar seguro para beber cerveza, lanzar insultos a los jugadores y desahogarse.

    También es para unos pocos afortunados. El lujo de una noche de diversión para una pareja que compra boletos, cerveza y perritos calientes cuesta fácilmente el doble del salario mínimo mensual equivalente a los 15 dólares que ganan la mayoría de los venezolanos.

    Esta temporada llega al final de un año tumultuoso para los venezolanos. El país fue remecido por multitudinarias protestas callejeras en respaldo al líder opositor Juan Guaidó, quien prometió derrocar a Maduro. En vano, Guaidó clamó por un alzamiento militar después de violentos enfrentamientos entre ciudadanos y fuerzas de seguridad del gobierno. Una falla eléctrica masiva en marzo dejó a la mayoría de la nación sin luz ni agua durante días. La crisis de Venezuela no tiene un final a la vista.

    La apertura del campeonato de béisbol, sin embargo, trajo algo de esparcimiento. Los Leones recibieron en su casa de Caracas a los Tigres de Aragua. A pesar de un notable número de asientos vacíos, el juego no decepcionó. Los Tigres se impusieron por 6-3.

    'Somos los mejores fanáticos del mundo', dijo Jesús Lezama, un fanático de 100 años, cuyo nombre lleva la Copa de la presente edición del torneo. Lezama fue homenajeado en el diamante antes del primer lanzamiento por sus años de dedicación. Luego, los jugadores trotaron para escuchar música de salsa. “¡Play Ball!”, gritó el locutor.

    Los jugadores de las Grandes Ligas estuvieron notablemente ausentes, dijeron muchos fanáticos. A lo largo de su historia, la liga de invierno de Venezuela atrajo a luminarias como Bob Gibson, Barry Bonds y Pete Rose. Seis jugadores en la reciente Serie Mundial eran venezolanos, sobresaliendo José Altuve de los Astros de Houston.

    El torneo invernal era aprovechado por los peloteros de las mayores para pulir sus habilidades durante el receso de temporada, y el béisbol es parte del tejido nacional de Venezuela.

    La ausencia se debió a las amplias sanciones de la Casa Blanca con el objetivo de obligar a Maduro a abandonar el poder. Las medidas financieras prohíben a las personas y compañías estadounidenses tratar con el gobierno de Maduro, como la empresa petrolera estatal PDVSA, que por años fue uno de los más importantes patrocinadores de la liga de béisbol.

    Giuseppe Palmisano, presidente de la LVBP, pasó el día de apertura en Miami tratando de llegar a un acuerdo con Grandes Ligas y el gobierno de los Estados Unidos para rescatar la temporada. Dijo que la liga venezolana había abandonado su patrocinio de PDVSA, apoyándose más en empresas privadas que durante años han patrocinado la liga, como Coca-Cola, Toyota y el gigante venezolano de alimentos y cerveza Polar.

    Palmisano dijo que esperaba que las circunstancias cambiaran pronto para que los jugadores de la MLB pudieran jugar más tarde en la temporada. Horas antes del primer lanzamiento el martes, funcionarios estadounidenses anunciaron cambios en sus sanciones a Venezuela, pero MLB no respondió de inmediato si habría un cambio en su posición.

    “Sí, estamos conscientes de que la vistosidad del juego no va a ser la misma”, dijo Palmisano en una entrevista con la AP realizada en un hotel de la ciudad de Doral, donde vive una de las comunidades venezolanas más numerosas del sur de la Florida.

    Pero el tira y afloja afuera del país quedó en segundo plano bajo las luces deslumbrantes del estadio de Caracas. Los fanáticos, ataviados con las franelas de sus equipos, se metían con los jugadores del equipo contrario y vitoreaban entusiastas jugadas dramáticas. Entre las entradas se abalanzaron para obtener camisetas gratis, lanzadas con pistolas de aire a las tribunas.

    Yadir Drake, un cubano de 29 años que juega como jardinero de los Tigres, comentó que los partidos en Venezuela tendrán un béisbol más agresivo debido a la ausencia de peloteros con contratos de MLB, haciéndoles más entretenidos para el fanático.

    Drake es uno de varias docenas de extranjeros enrolados para esta temporada, la mayoría procedente de la República Dominicana. Drake dijo que cuando él y los otros jugadores pisan el diamante, la política es lo último en lo que piensan, especialmente cuando los fanáticos comienzan a gritar.

    “Sabes que la afición se va a meter contigo y esa de las tantas cosas que te ayudan”, expresó el cubano. “Te animan a seguir jugando el béisbol y jugarlo agresivamente”.

    Nicaragua se pone a punto con Cuba para buscar mantenerse en Liga de Naciones

     Cache   

    Managua, 6 nov (EFE).- Nicaragua abre este jueves una serie de dos partidos de preparación con Cuba, para mantener sus posibilidades en la Liga de Naciones, que ofrece dos cupos para la Copa Oro 2021 de la Concacaf.

    Los partidos están programados para los días 7 y 10, en el Estadio Nacional, situado en el sur de Managua.

    La llamada Azul y Blanco no tendrá en sus filas a su figura principal, Juan Barrera, a causa de una lesión, pero está de regreso el mexicano nacionalizado nicaragüense Manuel Rosas.

    La selección nicaragüense también contará con el centrocampista Henry García, quien llevaba tres años sin contar para el técnico de origen costarricense Henry Duarte, por su baja estatura, 1,58 metros, pese a que la afición lo aclamaba debido a su habilidad con el balón.

    Enfrente estará una selección cubana que el 11 de octubre pasado perdió por 7-0 ante Estados Unidos, en la Liga de Naciones de la Concacaf.

    En Nicaragua se presentará la selección que se enfrentó con Estados Unidos ya sin sus estrellas Yordan Santa Cruz y Andy Barquero, quienes desertaron este año en Canadá.

    Se espera que el conjunto del técnico cubano Pablo Elier Sánchez cuente con el portero Andy Sánchez, quien podría sustituir a Nelson Johnston Barrientos, y la naciente estrella Maykel Reyes, quien acompañaría a Luis Pardela en la punta de una selección que promedia 23 años de edad.

    Duarte espera que el equipo cubano sirva para que Nicaragua vaya bien preparada a los próximos compromisos de la Liga de Naciones, el 15 de noviembre frente a San Vicente y las Granadina, en Kingstown, y el 18 de noviembre contra Surinam, en Managua.

    A pesar de estar en un grupo accesible, junto con San Vicente y las Granadinas, Surinam y Dominica, Nicaragua solamente ha conseguido 7 de 12 puntos, y se mantiene en la tercera posición de su grupo en la Liga B, de la Liga de Naciones, solamente por delante de Dominica.

    Nicaragua aspira a clasificarse en primer lugar de la Liga B, para obtener un cupo directo a la Copa Oro 2021, o hacerlo en la segunda posición, para disputar una repesca.

    Actualmente Nicaragua ocupa la posición 137 de la clasificación mundial de la FIFA, mientras que Cuba se ubica en la plaza número 179.

    - Posibles alineaciones:

    Nicaragua: Devern Fox; Jason Ingram, Francisco Flores, Campers Pérez, Manuel Rosas; Kevin Serapio, Renato Punyed, Byron Bonilla, Henry García; Jorge Betancur y Jaime Moreno.

    Seleccionador: Henry Duarte.

    Cuba: Sandy Sánchez, Dariel Morejón, Erick Rizo, Darío Ramos, Manuel Ignacio Cruz Ledesma; Rolando Abreu, Karel Espino, Arichel Hernández, Jean Carlos Rodríguez; Luis Paradela y Maykel Reyes.

    Seleccionador: Pablo Elier Sánchez.

    Árbitro: Por definir.

    Estadio: Nacional de Fútbol, Managua.

    M.H. Martín, Festival de Huelva: 'El cine se está convirtiendo en un evento'

     Cache   

    Madrid, 6 nov (EFE).- Mientras el cine tradicional pierde espectadores -según el último anuario de la SGAE- los festivales e iniciativas como la Fiesta del Cine no paran de crecer, una muestra, según Manuel H. Martín, director del Festival de Cine Iberoamericano de Huelva (sur de España), de que 'el cine se está convirtiendo en un evento'.

    'Las plataformas son complementarias, pero los festivales son más necesarios y tienen más sentido que nunca porque la gente aún quiere ver cine en pantalla grande, pero hay un cambio de hábitos', señaló en declaraciones a Efe.

    El festival de Huelva acaba de desvelar la programación para su edición número 45, que se celebrará del 15 al 22 de noviembre y que hoy se presenta en Madrid, con 'La odisea de los Giles', protagonizada por Ricardo Darín, como cinta de apertura fuera de competición.

    Una de las novedades este año es la creación de una nueva sección dedicada al 'fantaterror' iberoamericano, con el fin de atraer nuevos públicos y de desmontar prejuicios. 'Mucha gente piensa que el cine iberoamericano es de un solo tipo, pero hay mucha variedad, como en cualquier otro', subrayó Martín.

    En la sección oficial a concurso ocho películas se disputarán el Colón de Oro, procedentes de Argentina, Cuba, México, Colombia, Guatemala, Perú y República Dominicana, a los que se suman Francia, USA y España, que participan en diferentes coproducciones.

    La mitad de esos títulos están dirigidos por mujeres y destaca la peruana 'Canción sin nombre', opera prima de la peruana Melina León sobre bebés robados que debutó en la pasada Quincena de Realizadores de Cannes. 'Cada vez hay más mujeres jóvenes haciendo cine y eso se refleja en nuestro festival', aseguró Martín.

    'Pólvora en el corazón', de la guatemalteca Camila Urrutia, 'Souvenir' del mexicano Armond Cohen y 'Yo adolescente' de Lucas Santa Ana también son historias con protagonistas femeninas y jóvenes en una sección oficial que se completa con 'El proyeccionista' del dominicano José María Cabral y los documentales 'La maleta de Helios' de Javier Angulo y Nacho A.Villar y 'Eliades Ochoa de Cuba para el mundo' de Cynthia Biestek.

    'Somos un festival modesto, no buscamos estrenos absolutos sino una programación abierta, con un cine más de autor en la sección oficial y otro más dirigido al público en secciones como Panorama -de nueva creación-, donde se podrán ver títulos como 'Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas', 'Intemperie' de Benito Zambrano o 'El cuento de las comadrejas' de Campanela', explicó su director.

    En total se proyectarán 90 películas, un 15 % más que el año pasado, una edición que reunió a más de 33.000 espectadores.

    Los premios honoríficos Ciudad de Huelva serán este año para la actriz colombiana Juana Acosta y el director peruano Francisco J. Lombardi. Perú es además el país invitado y tendrá una sección especial con los títulos más destacados de su cinematografía reciente.

    La actriz, directora y guionista Leticia Dolera y la productora Marta Velasco ('Los niños salvajes', 'Quien te cantará', 'Intemperie') recibirán los premios Luz dedicados al talento emergente.

    Otra novedad que combina nostalgia y acercamiento al público infantil es la sección 'VHS' dedicada a Cruz Delgado, pionero de la animación en España, de quien se proyectarán títulos como 'Los 4 músicos de Bremen' o 'Los viajes de Gulliver'. EFE


              

    3-0. Taiwán vence a Venezuela y se clasifica a la súper ronda

     Cache   

    Taichung (Taiwán), 6 nov (EFE).- El equipo de Taiwán combinó bien un ataque de seis imparables y con buen desempeño de sus lanzadores derrotó este miércoles por 3-0 a Venezuela para clasificarse a la súper ronda del Premier 12 de béisbol.

    La victoria de los taiwaneses también firmó el acceso a la ronda de los seis mejores de Japón y eliminó a Puerto Rico y Venezuela, que con dos derrotas en dos salidas no tienen oportunidades de clasificación.

    En el Taichung Intercontinental Stadium, los dos primeros tercios del partido transcurrieron con un duelo de lanzadores, hasta que en el séptimo episodio los asiáticos le pegaron al lanzador relevista Miguel Socolovich y aseguraron el triunfo.

    Boleto del pitcher a Lin Che-Hsuan y dobles impulsores de carreras de Chu Yu-Hsien y Wang Wei-Chen le dieron la victoria a Taiwán que en su debut había superado por 6-1 a Puerto Rico.

    En la novena entrada Taiwán sumó una carrera anotada por Hu Chin-Lung, quien pegó un sencillo y anotó en un lanzamiento descontrolado del lanzador (wild).

    Yi Chang, el abridor de Taiwán trabajó siete entradas con seis hits permitidos y seis ponches y se llevó el triunfo, mientras Miguel Socolovich cargó con la derrota.

    Por Taiwán el tercera base Wang Wei-Chen ligó de 4-2 con una carrera impulsada y por Venezuela el mejor bateador fue el jardinero derecho Diego Rincones, quien se fue de 3-2.

    Con las clasificaciones de Taiwán y Japón ya son cuatro los asegurados a la ronda de los seis mejores a la que antes pasaron México y Estados Unidos, primero y segundo en ese orden en el grupo A que se celebró en Guadalajara, México.

    Los otros dos clasificados saldrán del grupo C en el que Canadá derrotó a Cuba y Corea a Australia en la primera jornada

    Este jueves en el cierre de la llave B, Taiwán enfrentará a Japón en la disputa del primer lugar y Venezuela a Puerto Rico.

    5-0. El campeón Corea blanquea a Australia en su debut en el Premier 12

     Cache   

    Seúl, 6 nov (EFE).- El equipo de Corea, campeón defensor, disfrutó de una actuación casi perfecta de sus lanzadores para blanquear este miércoles por 5-0 a Australia en el debut de ambos cuadros en el grupo C del Premier 12 de béisbol.

    El abridor Hyeonjong Yong permitió un sencillo en seis entradas con 10 ponches y fue apoyado por los relevistas Youngha Lee y Yong Chan Lee, quienes completaron la destacada actuación.

    Apoyados por sus aficionados en el Gocheok Sky Dome de Séul, los coreanos tomaron ventaja en la segunda entrada cuando Kim Jaehwan recibió una base por bolas, avanzó a segunda en una rola por tercera base de Euji Yang y anotó por sencillo de Hyunsoo Kim, quien a su vez llegó al 'home' empujado por hit de Byung Hun Min.

    En el tercer acto Ha Seong Kim llegó a primera base por un boleto, avanzó con doble de Jung Hoo Lee y anotó en un error del inicialista para el 3-0 que los asiáticos aumentaron con una carrera en el sexto.

    En ese episodio a Jaewan recibió una base por bolas, después de la cual Hyunsoo Kim y Kyoungmin Hur ligaron sencillos, éste último para empujar la carrera.

    Corea agregó una carrera en la octava entrada en la que Hur y Min Park fueron golpeados y Kim Ha Seong y Lee Jung Hoo recibieron boletos.

    El juego lo ganó Hyeonjung y lo perdió Timothy Atherton, abridor que aceptó tres hits y dos carreras en dos entradas de actuación.

    Por Corea el tercera base Kyoungmin Hur y el jardinero izquierdo Kim Hyunsoo batearon de 3-2 con una carrera impulsada y por los australianos Robert Glendinning se fue de 3-1 y evitó el 'no hit, no run' en contra de su equipo.

    Este jueves Australia enfrentará a Cuba y Corea a Canadá en duelo de invictos.

    La Fiscalía española recurrirá polémica pena que favoreció a los violadores de una menor de edad

     Cache   

    Barcelona (España), 6 nov (EFE).- La Fiscalía española anunció este miércoles que recurrirá la sentencia que condenó recientemente a cinco procesados por un delito de abuso sexual, y no por agresión sexual como pedía, por el asalto por turnos a una menor de 14 años en la población española de Manresa (provincia de Barcelona) en 2016.

    La Audiencia de Barcelona los condenó el jueves pasado a penas de entre 10 y 12 años y absolvió a otros dos acusados por los hechos, ocurridos durante una celebración con bebidas alcohólicas en una fábrica abandonada. Los procesados son tres españoles, tres cubanos y un argentino.

    Los condenados están en libertad provisional y solo uno de ellos permaneció dos años en prisión preventiva por la causa abierta a causa de la violación múltiple.

    La sentencia generó polémica y protestas ciudadanas convocadas por un centenar de asociaciones feministas en varias ciudades de España para exigir la reforma del Código Penal español, una demanda que recogió hasta ahora más de 300.000 firmas en la plataforma de peticiones change.org.

    El tribunal descartó la tesis de la Fiscalía de que los condenados se valieron de su superioridad numérica y el estado de ebriedad de la víctima para intimidarla y agredirla sexualmente, y mostró su ‘sorpresa’ porque el ministerio público, que inicialmente acusaba a los procesados de abusos, lo elevara a agresión sexual en sus conclusiones definitivas.

    Los hechos deben ser calificados de abuso, según la sentencia, porque la víctima se encontraba ‘en estado de inconsciencia, sin saber qué hacía y qué no hacía’ y sin poder ‘determinarse y aceptar u oponerse a las relaciones sexuales’ con los procesados, quienes no tuvieron que emplear ‘ningún tipo de violencia o intimidación’ contra ella.

    Según el tribunal, esto encaja en el artículo 181.2 del Código Penal español, que considera abusos sexuales no consentidos los que se ejecutan sobre personas que se encuentren privadas de sentido o anulando la voluntad de la víctima mediante fármacos, drogas u otras sustancias.

    En otro caso ocurrido en España, que generó también gran polémica, los cinco jóvenes del grupo ‘La Manada’ fueron condenados inicialmente a nueve años de prisión por abusos sexuales cometidos contra una joven en los sanfermines de 2016, pero el Tribunal Supremo elevó la pena en junio pasado a quince años al considerar que se trató de una violación.

    Mission - Truth and Justice
    Location - Various, USS Black Hawk

    ===[Bridge]===

    Over one hundred and twenty Dolmoqour had taken command of hosts aboard the Black Hawk. Most of the security, squadron, and various others throughout the ship were now unwilling vessels for the storm that would soon consume the Gamma Quadrant and the Federation. The bridge had also fallen to the Dolmoqour, and it was now secure enough for the true leader of the Dolmoqour to leave his protective home and assume his rightful place on the bridge.

    The turbolift doors opened, allowing Charles along with his Triosian and Boreriri companions to exit. "Excellent work," Charles stated to the Dolmoqour in command. "The next transport cycle should soon engage and we will convert the rest of deck six to our cause before moving to deck seven"

    At this point, Camila had secured Djinx with Security restraints on his wrists and ankles as well as stuffing a sock from the dead crewmember that she had killed earlier in his mouth. She tapped her foot when Carmichael and the other aliens came in. "What's the status of Teixeira?" she asked impatiently. "No one has reported finding him. It's like he vanished from the ship."

    "Considering he locked Geisler in with you and our brethren, chances are he's cowering somewhere in the bowels of the ship. Waste management, if I had to guess," Joey stated. The Dolmoqour found such an act amusing. The ship's Executive Officer fleeing and hiding somewhere on the ship when he was needed most. She supposed it did work in their favor, though. Him abandoning his fellow crewmen, leaving them without proper guidance during a crisis. It allowed them to bring more of their own aboard the ship, and now, they were in control of the bridge.

    "The Executive Officer is of no concern," Charles plainly stated. "We may not be able to locate him, thanks to one of you actually using a suicide tactic to destroy the internal sensors permanently, but he will soon be one of us. What matters is converting the rest of the crew. I believe Djinx there and Teixeira are all that remain of the senior staff, and as long as they are separate, they cannot do us any harm."

    Damian's voice spoke out. "With the internal sensors beyond repair, I can activate random forcefields around specific areas of transit. We won't be able to see where anyone is, but we might detect when one is being tampered with, and be able to triangulate their positions. Maybe keep them apart for a bit longer?"

    “Do it,” Charles said with a confirming nod. “Once the fields are up, Lieutenant Di Pasquale can dispatch security to those checkpoints to keep an eye on things.”

    The Damian replied. "Consider it done." Using Damian's access codes made this so much easier.

    Arjin was fuming inside, not being able to do something to remedy the situation. I was plain to him now, most of the crew were under some kind of influence. Something that had been inserted into their body probably if he had interpreted the behaviour correctly. So he and Teixeira were still unaffected. He would keep his eyes and ears open and when opportunity would present himself, he would try to escape his restraints and find Teixeira himself. For now he just observed further. He actually asked himself why they had not taken him over. Had they overplayed their hand? Where they out of ... 'things'?

    "Converting Commander Djinx should be easy enough. He can't resist," Joey pointed out. "Or... we simply keep him as he is and allow him to watch everything as it unfolds."

    Camila shook her head. "I don't think we can convert his species. Kij was converted and she went crazy."

    "Then we keep him for study," Charles said, looking at the Trill science officer. "Sooner or later, we will have to subjugate the Trill. and we will need to know how to do it. Maybe we'll have to plant a second Dolmoqour on the symbiont?"

    "That might work, but the only way to know is to try. Should we use Commander Djinx as our test subject?" Joey asked, casting a glance toward the Science Chief before looking back to Camila and Carmichael.

    "Or we could just kill him," Camila said coldly as she looked at the Trill scientist.

    The Intel Chief turned her attention toward the Trill. It actually appeared as though she was considering the thought. "Perhaps, but Carmichael is right. We're going to need to convert the Trill at some point, and a live test subject will work better than a dead one."

    "We had one. She lost her mind," the Security Chief said.

    Arjin was following the conversation intently. He wasn't showing any emotion. He wasn't afraid either. His Starfleet training and the memories of his Timor host were enough to keep his nerve. They did hold many cards. But not all. They could kill him, true. But he was prepared to. And they seemed to have overtaken many senior staff, but not all. He was still unaffected and so was Kij apparently. And they did not control Teixeira nor the Captain. Maybe they were less in control than they really thought. All he knew was that he and Djinx would try to fight any attempt to control them. It was clear to him also that having been locked away for such a long time had only heightened their individuality and will to be independent. Which meant they worked less well together than Starfleet personel did. 'United we stand. Divided we fall', clearly wasn't their moto. It was more a battle of wills, the stongest prevailing. He would continue to listen, observe and endure what they would throw at him. An opportunity or lack of attention was surely bound to happen at some time. He would take advantage of it when it came.

    The one called Damian spoke next. "I agree with her." He looked to the Intel Chief. "Kij may have been the anomaly. At the very least, we need to convert a few more to get an idea if their species can be converted, or removed."


    ===[Runabout Mississippi]===

    Terry was glad that the artifact was on board. He'd have had a hell of a time trying to navigate with mines chasing him. It was difficult enough as it was. Once they were on the other side of the minefield, the brawny Squadron Commander checked his readouts. "On this course, we're going to be coming up on the Black Hawk's port side, aft. And it'll be in about three minutes.

    Harvey took a look at the sensor readings. The Black Hawk was indeed maintaining her orbit of Penduli V, and seemed to be doing it quietly. There was no evidence that repairs to the shuttlebay doors had begun, and sensors did show unusual clustering of the crew. "This is odd," Harvey said. "Looks like power is out on multiple decks, and most of the crew has been assembled in muster areas in the saucer section, including deck six. Looks like we'll be encountering a lot of resistance when we beam in."

    "Huh, yeah, that's odd," said Terry. "I suppose, though, that if we got to a muster area, we could free more of the crew all at once. But even still, the resistance will have secured the rest of the ship. I'm glad we've got these guys and these guns with us."

    Harvey couldn't agree with Terry. While part of him was thankful to have backup, the three Guardians were just an unpleasant reminder that there were no second changes here. "Be ready for anything. We'll be showing up on the Black Hawk's sensors soon."


    ===[Bridge]===

    Damian could still see everything that was going on. He felt the panic subside slightly when his eye saw what the alien within him saw. He heard his prison keeper speak, using his voice. "External sensors are detecting a runabout on course with us. It looks like it sustained heavy damage. Showing 6 lifeforms on it. Unknown if they are us."

    Charles frowned. The runabout should have been destroyed by the Guardians, and he knew that not enough of the crew had left to fill that runabout. “Can you identify the life signs?” he asked.

    "No, just that there are. The external sensors are not running at their best, and this one was focusing on the internal sensors. Given a few hours, I could probably tell you who they are, but they 3 minutes away. We could look out a window?" He replied.

    Charles' frown turned into a scowl. Terrible suggestion that was, looking out a window. He turned to the Boreriri. "Contact Alexander. Scramble the fighters. I want that runabout destroyed."

    Starfleet Joey wanted to scream and fight. Enough of their crew had been killed already. There was no need for more, and she had a feeling she knew who was on that runabout. Dolmoqour Joey folded her arms and looked to Charles. "We could convert the Captain still. We have a secret weapon," she said. "This body belongs to his wife, and this..." She gestured to her body's swollen abdomen. "disgusting mass of fluid and tissue are his unborn children. Maybe we can use them to our advantage."

    "He's coming back from the Guardians," Charles stammered, pointing at specks of light on the viewscreen. "Search your memories. Geisler will stop at nothing to see to it we are rid from this ship. And despite your... incubating period... if he realizes that its a lost cause, he will sacrifice this entire ship, you, and his spawn, to ensure we're stopped." Charles shook his head. "No. Geisler dies today."

    "And what if, by some miracle, he and the others are able to get by the fighters and make it onto the ship?" Joey asked as she folded her arms and cocked her head to the side. The Captain was quite resilient, she knew that based on the memories of her host, and had no intentions of counting Harvey out. Not now. "I'm going to the flight deck, and I think Lieutenant Di Pasquale should join me. Face it... our hosts are trained to handle situations like this. Probably better than anyone on the ship."

    "Do it," Charles said without hesitation. "Make sure the Captain does not have a chance to save his ship."

    "Lieutenant, shall we?" Joey asked, as she moved over to the weapons locker. Once she had it open, she produced a few phasers and some extra power cells, then tossed a couple in Camila's direction. "Don't worry... Geisler and his lackeys won't even make it off the flight deck." With that, the Intel Chief made her way off of the bridge with a new destination in mind.

    Camila put on another tactical belt and put the extra power cells im after swapping out the one in her phaser and followed Joey.

    "Want me to take us out of range?" Kelly asked Carmichael.

    "Not yet," Carmichael noted, sitting down in the command chair. It was quite comfortable, but it still led him to wonder why Geisler stood more than sat. "But, start looking at ways out of the minefield, and past the Guardians. We'll need those solutions soon enough."

    "I'm on it," Kelly said as she accessed her hosts memories for the correct course of action and then began to plot various courses through the minefield. "If the Guardians get too close to us, a photon torpedo in the field should take care of them, but I'll wager anything that this host could outfly them with this ship any day of the week."

    "I'll keep it on my screens, and patch through to the tactical station." The Damian replied.

    'So the plot thickens and things start to go wrong', Arjin thought. 'And now you have to start improvising. Let's see how good you are at this game. Two gone from the bridge already. Let's find out how well you control the bridge.' He shifted to make some noice and distract them some more.

    Kelly looked over at Djinx when he shifted around. "Someone stun that spotted freak."


    ===[Flight Deck]===

    Alexander, internally was pissed for she'd lost complete control over herself. What was even more annoying was she couldn't seem to stop her intruder from rifling through her memories, looking for the skills and information it needed to survive. She'd been talking to some of the other converted, they had many more now, when she suddenly tilted her head. Then she straightened, "We have orders. We are to launch and destroy Geisler's runabout. Move!" The command in her voice was unmistakable and she gave truth to her works as she moved toward her craft. Only to stumble briefly as Archer flooded her with more memories then even that one could handle at once, "Keep on and I will kill everyone you know..." she muttered continuing and jumping in her craft. Archer gave her a mental middle finger.

    On the flight deck, Aurilia saw Alexander powering up her fighter and powered her weapons up. "Stand down, Archer," she called over the coms as she manuevered her Gryphon in front of the flight deck doors.

    "You've got to be kidding me..." Alexander muttered as she scanned through Archer's memories of the other pilot. She didn't think the other would fire inside the Blackhawk but she was literally sitting in the way. And she wasn't a 100% on that not firing thing either, maybe 90% sure? Other infected pilots were climbing into their craft and going through swift pre-flight checks. She glared at Griffin a, "Do something." way. Then opened a com, "I can't do that Moretti." She said uncharacteristically using Tango's last name, not having had a lot of time to get used to the memories in this body. "We've got orders to bring the Captain in safely." She tried to bluff, considering her options.

    "I swear by everything I believe in that I'll kill every last person on this flight deck if you try to get by me," Aurilia warned and transmitted her voice outside of the cockpit and over the comms as she inched the Gryphon up and activated her micro torpedo launchers and phasers.

    Griffin, or rather the entity that had inhabited Griffin's body sorted through reams of memories, looking for something that would be of use. It took a moment, but it finally came up with an idea. Every fighter in the bay, it discovered through Griffin's mind, had a prefix code that allowed for remote control in the case that the pilot was incapacitated. All it had to do was find the prefix code...

    Griffin watched helplessly as his hands worked a maintenance console and began looking through the Black Hawk's database. He roiled and roared, bending all his will to influence the thing that had taken over his body, but to no avail. He willed his hands to still as they found the code and, with the press of a few buttons, connected to the fighter.

    "I can destroy it or disable it, which do you prefer?" Griffin's voice, oddly calm and cool spoke to the woman who had provided the new body.

    Alexander had been flipping through options, not helped by the fact Archer kept looping helpful memories on how crazy Tango was. When Griffin spoke up with his offer, the entity breathed a mental sigh of relief as Archer cursed. "disable" She said, after all they might still be able to use her "complete lockdown but somewhere else." The other infected pilots were ready now as well and she was eager to get moving.

    Elsewhere Galahad, trying to back up Tango, tried to 'quietly' bring his systems online.

    Hearing Griffin's voice and seeing him at the console, she locked eyes with Archer and attempted to fire a volley of micro torpedos before her fighter was shut down.

    Joey arrived on the flight deck half expecting to see the runabout had gotten through the fighters only to discover the fighters were still on board the ship with one blocking the doors. What in the seven levels of hell was going on here? Anger began to boil inside of her. There was little to no chance she'd be heard over the fighters, which meant she'd have to get the attention of the pilots another way. She pulled her phaser and raised it to the air toward the ceiling where nothing vital happened to be, then fired, sending debris clattering to the floor a safe distance from everything and one. It was definitely one way to draw attention to herself and the officer with her.

    If the sight of the red uniform wearing officer didn't get Aurilia's attention, the phaser fire at the ceiling certainly did. "Sweet Kingon," she yelped and tried to worm down deeper in her cockpit.

    Camila came in behind Joey and approved of her method of getting everyone's attention. She set her phaser on wide beam and covered Joey's blind spots. "Anyone does anything stupid gets to answer to this," she warned. "I use the higher settings for the terminally stupid." She brought the phaser around towards the fighters. "Both of you out of those fighters, now!" she ordered.

    Aurilia looked for a weapon, but the cramped cockpit didn't have a spare phaser laying around and there was the matter of Archer, Griffin and the others on the flight deck that were acting weird. She reluctantly popped the canopy and brought her hands out first to show they were empty, then slowly stood up. "Please don't shoot. I'm Ensign Moretti."

    "I don't care who you are," Camila said. "Get out of that bird and stand with the others." She indicated a group of converted that she recognized by their facial twitches. "Now!"

    The redheaded pilot looked towards Archer's fighter and hoped the crazy bitch didn't decided to blow her way off the flight deck as she climbed out. She swallowed and looked at the group that the Chief of Security had indicated, then swallowed harder and headed towards them.

    A security officer looked at the approaching pilot and drew his phaser to make sure the pilot wouldn't try anything. His left eyelid fluttered twice, hoping that the redhead's Dolmoqour would reply in kind.

    Aurilia wondered what was going on with half the crew seemingly armed and herding the others around, the screams before they turned quiet and then the Security and Intel Chief seeming to contradict each other. She watched the guy wink at her and sighed. "Sorry. My boyfriend would eat you for breakfast, so no thanks."

    The security officer knew what to do now, especially since he was aware that she had not yet become a host. He set the intensity of the phaser upward just so she would hear the action and raised his phaser to make her aware of how serious this was. "Stop right there," he warned her. "Turn around."

    "I don't think so," the redheaded pilot said as she eyed the phaser. "I'd rather not get shot in the back by a traitor, so if you're going to do it, do it."

    He narrowed his eyes and stepped forward, his phaser still extended. The moment he was within range, he suddenly dropped the phaser, and lifted his other hand, where a Dolmoqour was disguised in his palm. With a quick motion, he brought his hand across, intending to slap Moretti.

    Luckily, years at the Academy playing Velocity had taught her a thing or do about not being hit and how to block a hit. She ducked down under the hand that was swinging at her and lunged for the phaser like she was trying to score a point against an opponent. Only my normal opponents aren't armed with phasers, she thought as she hoped she wouldn't die soon.

    Despite the fact that he missed, he turned his hand as it passed over Moretti's head and dropped the parasite on her head. He then tried to move away from her in hopes that she would not get the phaser. It wouldn't matter in a moment anyway, for Moretti would not be herself much longer.

    Aurilia's hand closed over the phaser a moment before she felt something move against her ear. What did the guy do to her? She tried to yank down the hand with the phaser while bringing her other hand up, but that threw her off balance. She cursed and hit the deck, then screamed as she felt something go in her ear. She rolled and slapped at it, trying to dislodge whatever it was, then she screamed again and her back bucked off the floor and she fell over on her side and screamed again as the Dolmoqour seized her mind and began to assimilate her memories.

    The security officer, pleased with himself, turned and nodded to the Chief Intelligence Officer. The remainder of the pilots had been converted to the Dolmoqour cause.

    "No! Alexander, you and the others get the hell out of here and do what the hell you were ordered to do," Joey shouted. "Now!"

    Feeling useless Galahad powered up his fighter too as if to go with the others. He had no idea what was happening but no one seemed to notice him yet so why not.

    "Aye Ma'am!" Alexander replied, "Flight on my Wing" she announced to the other pilots and aiming for the second exit they began heading out as fast as safety permitted. Galahad, still uninfected, attempting to tag along.

    The Dolmoqour piloting Griffin's mind and body ran his hands over the console, quickly disabling the fighter's power, weapons and comm systems. It then took a minute to take stock of the mountain it had inherited. An angry mind, full of rage and despair. A body was showing several signs of not being cared for very well, but was still very powerful for what the Dolmoqour understood to be the limit of human capabilities. "This fighter is in good condition," he spoke to Aurilia, his booming voice calm and cool. "Your host is a pilot. Are you capable of piloting it?"

    By now, the Dolmoqour had broken through Aurilia's defenses and accessed the information the young pilot had. "I do and she's a hotel sierra pilot, whatever that means. She thinks highly of her flying skills. And something called alcohol."


    ===[Space]===

    "Right on time," Harvey muttered, watching the sensors. Another time, he would be proud of the 325th for their response time and quick action. For now, he would have to settle for dread and place all of his hopes in Commander Walsh that he could get the ship to the collision point. "Phasers are ready. Mister Kemm, please tell me the LRADs are ready, as well as your transporter finesse."

    "As ready as they're ever going to be," replied the Kelpian lieutenant.

    "Yep, they're trained well. Filthy Dolmoquor have access to some of the best," said Terry. He input some plans for evasive maneuvers while en route for the collision. But he held off using them for the moment. "I have a backup plan though, Captain. Before I left, my Dolmoquor left strict instructions not to launch unless I ordered it. If worse comes to worse, I can try a verbal stand-down. Try and make them think I'm still one of them." He saw the fighters would be on them any minute and got ready for the big dance.

    "You can give it a shot," Harvey agreed, despite how uncertain he was that it would work. "Just be ready for them to not accept you."

    Terry nodded. "In a perfect world... But then, this Zone is far from a perfect world. Nasty, controlling fish bait." He tapped at the piloting controls again. "Brace yourselves. Any second now."

    Alexander lead a team of seven fighters including herself, a very minor thing but she never thought an uninfected would do what Galahad was now doing, so in reality she had 5 other infected besides herself. The poor Ensign was flying in formation trying really hard to thinking blending in thoughts, still wishing he had more information. If he pinged the other fighters they'd know it. He wasn't even sure all were in the weird place Alexander seemed to be in but he did know things weren't adding up and he planned to listen in, waiting for what he didn't know.

    "Ryan." She said to another pilot, "Take M'len and Roose into..." She paused trying to find the knowledge, Archer still throwing up mental roadblocks via memory overload but she got there in the end, it was getting easier to deflect. She would have to do something about that though, even a millisecond behind the console of a fighter could be life or death. For now she continued her orders, "Form grid 4 formation, maximum scanning and overlapping fire ranges. Weapons on stand by."

    "They've charged weapons," Harvey reported. "Our forward and last functioning rear bank are online, and targets acquired." Looking to Walsh, Harvey stated, "Let's get this over with. Get us to the ship as quickly as possible."

    "I'll give her all she's got, Captain," replied Terry. He pushed the runabout as hard as he dared to the Black Hawk...to the coordinates.

    "Sixty seconds to shield perimeter," Lieutenant Kemm reported. "Transporter locks are secure for six lifesigns and our destination."

    Alexander locked eyes on her HUD watching the shuttle, it was making for them or maybe for the ship she didn't know or much care. It was the shuttle the Captain had left in that was the big part of what she wanted to know. Reactions slowed very slightly by the fact she had to keep pulling memory. This particular ride along was not a pilot herself but was getting faster "Grid vector 45.7 formation. I want to meet it away from the ship." She didn't trust why it was coming on to them like this and instinct had her wanting to deal with this in the depths of space. Especially if they blew it. She knew blowing it inside the Black Hawks shield bubble would be stupid.

    The other pilots shifted in a sort of swarm style meant to block and react quickly to hem in an enemy. Weapons firing solutions ready to lock on the shuttle when they got within range as Galahad considered a plan to disable as many fighters as he could before they discovered him or took him out.

    "Less than a minute to...." He paused when he looked out the front of the runabout. "What in the world are they doing?! An unidentified craft is less than sixty seconds from the Black Hawk's shield perimeter and they're forming a fighter screen? I swear if they weren't Dolmoquor I'd give the whole lot of them a ripping like they'd never had!" He sighed. "I suppose we could be thankful that they are Dommie and not my regular pilots. If they were, we would have already been in trouble." He turned to the Kelpian engineer. "Time to impact, Lieutenant Kemm?"

    "Forty seconds to the shield perimeter," Kemm said, not looking up from the center console in front of the transporter. "Forty-five to impact."

    "Forty to forty-five seconds...I can dodge anything they might try to throw at us. You should get everyone ready for an infiltration beam-in, Captain," he said to the man who'd been monitoring the what was left of the weapons system. "Hopefully we won't have to start shooting right away, but you never know." The big man paused for a second before he realized what he'd just said and to whom he said it. "Uh, I mean, I recommend it, Sir."

    Harvey smirked, liking the fact that his squadron commander had gone from apologetic and remorseful to commanding and defiant in less than an hour. This could bode well for the crew as everyone was freed. "We're about as ready as we could ever be," he told Walsh. To be sure, he shot a glance back at Kemm.

    Kemm glanced up at the Captain in return. He didn't have to provide a facial expression, however difficult it was for a Kelpien to do, to display how he felt about the entire situation. The exposed threat ganglia took care of that. "Thirty seconds," he droned.

    Terry nodded. "Right, Sir. Let's get the job done, then." Combat was combat to the old Marine, whether it was in space with fighters or in a ship with people.

    "Open fire". Alexander said cursing the error she saw too late as the craft came onward, the fighters continued forward and opened fire as soon as there was a lock. One of fighters got its shots very close to Alexander but she she didn't pay attention to the idiot that fired it as she was too busy dodging. It did throw off her shot, growling she ignored Archer's glee as Alexander bent with renewed determination to the console, caution gone now.

    "Shields at forty percent!" Kemm cried out from his console. "Containment fields on the warp core are failing! We're looking at two minutes until a core breach."

    Harvey fought the urge to curse and struggled to maintain his composure. It it hadn't been for the beating the runabout took on its first flight through the minefield, the damage probably wouldn't have been that extensive. But, one way or another, the faithful Mississippi was about to have her last hurrah. "Time to perimeter?" Harvey asked.

    "Ten seconds!" Kemm cried back.

    The Captain kept his eyes fixated out the forward viewport and fired twice from the forward phaser array. The first shot narrowly missed a fighter, but the second shot landed directly on a fighter's wing. Harvey hoped that the wounding wasn't fatal. More of his crew would die today, but he didn't want any of it to be at his hands.

    Terry tried to dodge the blasts as best as possible. But there were so many fighters against their little runabout that they were bound to take some shots. Kemm's exclamations after one of the hits confirmed it. Terry shook his head...he'd been in two vessels today that were having a warp core breach. What kind of crappy luck was that?

    An indicator on the console told him that those ten seconds had passed. "We're through the shields, Captain. Collision course set for deflector control and standing by for computer controlled piloting."

    "Dropping shields!" Harvey shouted, quickly running his hands across the panel as the Black Hawk now filled the viewport. "Now, Mister Kemm!" A heartbeat later, Harvey could literally feel the transporter begin to disassemble his body atom by atom and convert him into energy. The process soon left the Mississippi vacant, leaving her to run on her own power towards the ship's mighty hull.

    The explosion, to those who could see and appreciate it, was fantastic. Corroded by the cosmozoan a month ago, the Black Hawk's engineering hull was little match for the battering ram and disintegrated with the collision. The runabout's remaining nacelle tumbled off into the void of space, as did the runabout's remaining antimatter. As quickly as it had begun, the fireball disappeared, leaving behind a gigantic hole in the side of the ship. Around the bend, the mighty deflector dish began to flicker and fade. Harvey's target had met its mark and achieved exactly what it hoped to accomplish.

    Now the real fight for the Black Hawk would begin.

    In the immediate aftermath it was all Alexander and the others could do to maintain control of their crafts as the energy ripple from the after math blew outward. Systems screamed alarms, HUDS overloaded briefly and for a few seconds it was sheer chaos.


    ===[Flight Deck]===

    Joey was pleased. The fighters would be able to prevent Geisler and the others from making it back onto the ship. That remained her line of thinking until an explosion rocked the ship, sending the infected woman crashing to the floor beneath her. She cursed, able to brace herself from taking any major damage, but the bumps and bruises would smart later. "What the hell was that?"

    Camila staggered and fired her phaser when the explosion rocked the ship and hit a Petty Officer in the chest and putting a nice hole in him. She cursed in Italian and looked at the pregnant host of the other Dolmoqour. "Get up," she said, offering her free hand.

    Accepting the offered hand, Joey got to her feet. "Find out what's going on."

    Indian scuba divers rescue sea turtle trapped in fishing lines and floating plastic bottles

     Cache   
    Video shows the heroic moment scuba divers rescue a sea turtle after it was stuck in a rubbish trap of plastic bottles and fishing lines. The filmer told Newsflare: "On closer look, it becomes clear that inflated plastic bottles have been tied deliberately to the turtle's front flippers - trapping it on the surface and preventing it from diving for food or shelter. "It takes some time to cut through the thick nylon lines but the turtle is finally set free and it quickly swims to the depths." The filmer commented on Facebook: "As a diver, I often come across heartbreaking scenes of destruction of our oceans... but after witnessing this I've been wondering if we still have hope?" The shocking footage was filmed near Minicoy Island, Lakshadweep on October 3.

    Audios vinculan a dirigentes cívicos, exmilitares y a EEUU con planes desestabilizadores en Bolivia

     Cache   
    Por ERBOL

    En medio de la actual crisis política en Bolivia surgieron unos dieciséis audios de conversaciones donde se escucha presuntamente a dirigentes cívicos, políticos y militares en servicio pasivo, en un plan de agitación social, antes y después de las elecciones generales, con el propósito de evitar la continuidad del presidente Evo Morales, según publicaciones en medios digitales.

    La totalidad de los audios y los informes redactados el 8 y 10 de octubre se encuentran en el portal https://bbackdoors.wordpress.com/2019/10/08/us-hands-against-bolivia-part-i/ y el contenido es coincidente con el discurso de autoridades de gobierno que denunciaron planes de golpe de estado e incluso el presidente Evo Morales dijo en días pasados tener las grabaciones.

    (Aquí en español "El plan de EEUU contra Bolivia" parte 1 y parte 2)
    (Aquí los 16 audios http://bit.ly/2Nmj5w5)


    En las conversaciones se menciona a un expresidente de la república, al exprefecto de Cochabamba, Manfred Reyes Villa, al ex diputado cochabambino de NFR Mauricio Muñoz. Un informe escrito agrega a los exmilitares del Ejército Oscar Pacello Aguirre, Remberto Siles, Julio Cesar Maldonado y Teobaldo Cardozo.

    Según la fuente, en uno de esos audios se identifica a la activista Miriam Pereira quien hace referencia a Juan Flores, a su asesor Alex Brañez, Oscar Robles. Ella alerta de un viaje que hicieron esas personas a Estados Unidos para reunirse con Carlos Sánchez Berzaín y un presunto financiamiento de medio de millón de dólares para gastos de movilización. “El chulupi quiere sangre, en esto está trabajando, el financiamiento es por medio millón de dólares para sus gastos”, dijo ofuscada la citada persona, de acuerdo con la grabación..

    La dirección digital https://postcuba.org/embajada-de-eeuu-en-la-paz-su-accionar-encubierto-en-apoyo-al-golpe-de-estado-contra-el-presidente-evo-morales/#.Xb5Oi9JKiM, consigna un resumen sobre el contenido de las conversaciones de dirigentes políticos, cívicos y ex militares en sus labores de coordinación con miras al paro nacional cívico del 21 de agosto; acciones previas y posteriores a las elecciones nacionales.

    Ese informe está escrito en el idioma inglés y fue traducido al español está disponible en el portal post cuba, bajo el rótulo "Embajada de EEUU en La Paz: Su accionar encubierto en apoyo al Golpe de Estado contra el presidente Evo Morales".

    MENCIONA A SENADORES DE EEUU

    En uno de los audios se escucha presuntamente a Manfred Reyes Villa en una conversación con personas que no pudieron ser identificadas, a quienes les recuerda que hay un compromiso de los senadores estadounidenses Marco Rubio, Bob Menéndez Ted Cruz para promover sanciones económicas contra Bolivia, si acaso Evo Morales permanece  en el Palacio de Gobierno.

    "Estos tres nombres que están mencionados en nuestra agendita, son la llave que están manejando el interés de que el pueblo boliviano tenga la justicia por el voto del 21 de febrero de 2016", dice Reyes Villa. Incluso su operador político Mauricio Muñoz habla en otro audio sobre la posibilidad de retornar al país para ser candidato a Gobernador de Cochabamba, siempre que Evo Morales salga del poder con las acciones de agitación social.

    En otro audio, un supuesto exmilitar no identificado alerta sobre el riesgo de contaminar a los comités cívicos de La Paz y Santa Cruz, para luego el gobierno los ponga en la misma bolsa y los acuse de golpistas.

    Otra voz dice: "señor expresidente, estamos en una escalada" que en algún momento debe llegar a su punto culminante en base a la movilización popular, porque "las Fuerzas Armadas van a reaccionar de acuerdo a lo que los movimientos populares hagan. Si hay un respaldo mayoritario, en algún momento alguien le va a decir, por favor señor Presidente cumpla con la ley y a eso debemos ir nosotros", manifiesta en la conversación.

    Incluso plantea que los cívicos movilizados tengan en cuenta que el enemigo en Bolivia es Cuba. "Mi coronel, tenemos que decir fuera cubanos, mueran cubanos. Los comités cívicos exigen a países internacionales, es estúpido; quien gobierna el país son los cubanos", afirmó.

    Otra voz indica que los campesinos están esperando una estructura sólida a partir del 21 de agosto para actuar junto a las plataformas.

    También lograron infiltrar una reunión presuntamente del presidente y del jefe de juventudes del comité cívico de La Paz, con un exgeneral identificado como Julito y el excoronel quien en su charla se presenta como Oscar Pacello Aguirre, representante de la Coordinadora Nacional Militar, quien habla de tener planes para tomar la gobernación y subgobernación de Tarija, probablemente en el mes de agosto.

    "Hay información que solamente debe quedar aquí, vamos a ir manejando temas reservados y secretos, no puede salir. Si sale eso, nos van a hacer abortar", dice al explicar que la ruta parte el 23 de julio, 21 de agosto, hasta el 20 de octubre, pero antes los momentos clave de su movilización deberían ser la visita del expresidente José Mújica, el 6 de agosto en el acto cívico-patriótico y el 7 de la parada militar en la ciudad de El Alto.
                                           .
    "Evo Morales quiere legitimarse en estas elecciones y tenemos que coordinar con los comités cívicos", dice en otra parte de su conversación aparentemente con los cívicos de La Paz.

    Declaración final del Encuentro antimperialista de solidaridad por la democracia y contra el neoliberalismo

     Cache   
    Por Seguimos en Lucha

    Desde esta Cuba solidaria, primer territorio libre de América, reconociendo la heroica resistencia de su pueblo y las conquistas alcanzadas en sesenta años de Revolución, hemos compartido nuestras luchas y esperanzas 1332 representantes de 789 organizaciones del movimiento social y popular, de la solidaridad; de redes, plataformas y articulaciones regionales y globales, de partidos políticos, parlamentarios, religiosos e intelectuales, de 86 países.

    Llegamos desde todos los rincones del mundo, con una larga historia de ejercicio de la solidaridad frente a la agresividad imperialista contra la Revolución Cubana, comprometidos con todas las causas justas y como parte de los esfuerzos de unidad en la acción y de las articulaciones de lucha, para reunirnos en La Habana en el Encuentro Antimperialista de Solidaridad, por la Democracia y contra el Neoliberalismo, del 1 al 3 de noviembre de 2019.

    Vivimos un nuevo momento en la historia. Los pueblos en las urnas, en las calles y en las redes sociales demuestran con su voto y sus protestas, el agotamiento de la ofensiva imperial conservadora y restauradora neoliberal de la derecha oligárquica, en alianza con el fundamentalismo religioso, el poder mediático, el capital y las empresas trasnacionales que, de la mano del imperialismo norteamericano, en su naturaleza depredadora, excluye a amplios sectores de la población, destruye el trabajo digno, la vida en armonía con la naturaleza y pone en peligro a la especie humana.

    Los pueblos están demostrando que es posible derrotar la ofensiva imperial, que en sus propósitos acude a la criminalización de la protesta social, el confinamiento y desplazamiento de poblaciones, el asesinato de líderes sociales y políticos, el feminicidio, la persecución a líderes de gobiernos progresistas y a la judicialización de la política.

    Se abren tiempos de esperanza. La unidad es vital y constituye un deber; la movilización, un grito de orden; la organización popular, una tarea inminente; y la integración, una estrategia que nos llevará a la victoria.

    En este momento crucial, nos comprometemos a:

    1. Hacer nuestra la Declaración de Solidaridad con Cuba aprobada en este Encuentro, movilizándonos en acciones permanentes, intensivas y sistemáticas de alto impacto mediático, contra la escalada agresiva del imperialismo yanqui, como parte de la Campaña internacional “Manos fuera de Cuba”.

    2. Exigir el levantamiento del recrudecido, criminal y genocida bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero impuesto a Cuba por el gobierno de Estados Unidos, y respaldar la Resolución que se presentará ante la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, los días 6 y 7 de noviembre de 2019, seguros de otra contundente victoria de la comunidad internacional.

    3. Denunciar las amenazas y agresiones de diversa naturaleza sobre todos los gobiernos soberanos que se niegan a servir a la potencia hegemónica, que busca instalar bases militares en sus territorios y usurpar sus recursos estratégicos.

    5. Denunciar los graves riesgos que entraña para América Latina, el Caribe y el mundo, la decisión de activar el Tratado Interamericano de Asistencia Recíproca (TIAR), orientado a respaldar militarmente el afán del gobierno de los Estados Unidos de revivir la Doctrina Monroe.

    6. Expresar nuestra firme solidaridad con la Revolución Bolivariana y Chavista, la unión cívico-militar del pueblo, y su legítimo Presidente Nicolás Maduro Moros que ha sabido defender con firmeza su soberanía frente a las agresiones de todo tipo del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y sus aliados entreguistas que adoptan medidas contra los verdaderos representantes diplomáticos del gobierno venezolano. Apoyar el diálogo con sectores de la oposición para mantener la paz en Venezuela.

    7. Intensificar la movilización en reclamo de la inmediata liberación del compañero Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, víctima de la judicialización de la política, que tiene como fin la persecución y encarcelamiento de líderes políticos de izquierda y progresistas latinoamericanos.

    8. Felicitar al pueblo del Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia por su victoria en el proceso electoral y al Presidente Evo Morales Ayma por su reelección, como resultado de las medidas en beneficio popular y el crecimiento económico. Igualmente, denunciar los intentos de golpe de estado y de desestabilización desatada por sectores de la oposición, instigados por los Estados Unidos, contra la paz y la seguridad ciudadana en Bolivia

    9. Condenar los intentos de la administración estadounidense de desestabilizar al gobierno de Nicaragua y reiterar el derecho de su pueblo a la Paz.

    10. Demandar la independencia de Puerto Rico, nación latinoamericana y caribeña sometida hace más de un siglo al dominio colonial de los Estados Unidos, donde su pueblo se revela victorioso en las calles frente a las políticas del gobierno anexionista.

    11. Expresar nuestra firme solidaridad con las naciones del Caribe, en su legítimo reclamo de reparación por las secuelas de la esclavitud; así como el trato justo y diferenciado en el enfrentamiento al cambio climático, en correspondencia con sus circunstancias especiales y su situación de mayor vulnerabilidad.

    12. Apoyar la demanda histórica del pueblo argentino por la recuperación de las islas Malvinas, territorio que legítimamente le pertenece.

    13. Denunciar a los gobiernos que, siguiendo los dictados del imperialismo yanqui y las recetas del Fondo Monetario Internacional, imponen a sangre y fuego a sus pueblos políticas neoliberales de choque, profundizando la injusticia social y afectando especialmente a los sectores más vulnerables de la sociedad. Condenar enérgicamente el uso de la fuerza y la represión para intentar aplastar los justos reclamos de los movimientos sociales y populares.

    14. Defender la decisión del pueblo de Chile a rebelarse en las calles con valentía para abrir las grandes alamedas contra las políticas represivas y antipopulares del gobierno, y condenar el empleo de torturas, violaciones, mutilaciones y muerte de ciudadanos chilenos a manos de los órganos represivos del país.

    15. Condenar la represión en Ecuador y el costo en vidas humanas para ese hermano pueblo que se enfrenta al paquetazo neoliberal

    16. Rechazar al gobierno pro imperialista de Jair Bolsonaro, plegado a los intereses de los Estados Unidos y empeñado en revertir los avances alcanzados en ese hermano país, destruir los procesos de integración y toda expresión progresista y de izquierda en la región.

    17. Respaldar el derecho del pueblo colombiano a la paz y defender la implementación plena del Acuerdo Final para lograrla. Exigir al gobierno el respeto a la vida de los ex combatientes y líderes políticos y sociales. Llamamos a retomar la Mesa de Diálogo con el Ejército de Liberación Nacional.

    21. Saludar al gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador y su contribución a la unidad de América Latina y el Caribe, en defensa de los principios de no intervención y respeto a la soberanía

    22. Expresar nuestro apoyo y solidaridad al Frente Amplio Uruguayo que defiende la continuidad de los avances alcanzados en los últimos tres lustros en favor de su pueblo.

    23. Denunciar la intromisión del imperialismo en los asuntos internos de los países de África y Medio Oriente, la agresión y las guerras desatadas, bajo la llamada cruzada contra el terrorismo, por el control de los recursos naturales de esas regiones. Rechazar las medidas económicas coercitivas contra Zimbabue

    24. Apoyar la causa histórica de lucha de los pueblos saharaui y palestino, por su derecho a la libre determinación.

    25. Exigir el fin de la intervención imperialista contra Siria y el pleno respeto a su soberanía e integridad territorial.

    26. Saludar el proceso de acercamiento y diálogo intercoreano. Condenar las sanciones unilaterales contra la República Popular Democrática de Corea.

    27. Rechazar todas las formas de discriminación y violencia por razones de género, color de la piel, creencia religiosa, orientación sexual u otra manifestación que atente contra la dignidad e integridad de las personas y llamar a la solidaridad con sus agendas de lucha; así como reconocer el aporte de los movimientos de mujeres y feministas en los procesos emancipatorios.

    28. Defender los derechos de los pueblos originarios a su cultura, a sus territorios, tradiciones y costumbres ancestrales. Expresar nuestro apoyo a las comunidades de origen africano y a las minorías en la lucha por sus reivindicaciones.

    30. Condenar enérgicamente la actual política antiinmigrantes de los gobiernos de los Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea, así como toda manifestación de fascismo, xenofobia, y racismo.

    31. Denunciar la actual cruzada macartista del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y la campaña anticomunista que tiene lugar en Europa.

    32. Convocar a la lucha global para defender los recursos naturales, la biodiversidad, la soberanía y la seguridad alimentaria, la madre tierra, las conquistas y derechos sociales.

    33. Fortalecer la respuesta a la guerra cultural y simbólica que tiene como espacio en disputa a la subjetividad del ser humano, articulando la batalla mediática en Internet y las redes sociales digitales, alimentando las redes de la verdad frente a la ofensiva de la mentira del imperialismo neoliberal.

    Por tanto:

    Reiteramos la importancia de avanzar en la construcción de la unidad antimperialista de las fuerzas políticas de izquierda y de los movimientos sociales y populares, con respeto a la pluralidad, la diversidad y el derecho soberano de los pueblos para escoger libremente su forma de organización política, económica y social, convencidos de que la unidad es la única vía para alcanzar la victoria en el enfrentamiento al principal enemigo de los pueblos: el imperialismo yanqui y sus aliados.

    Agradecemos al pueblo, al Gobierno de la Isla de la Libertad y de la Unidad y al Capítulo Cubano de los Movimientos Sociales por su hospitalidad e invariable solidaridad. Continuaremos junto a ustedes, comprometidos con su proyecto social y con el compromiso de divulgar la verdad sobre esta invencible Revolución.

    Este Encuentro reafirma la voluntad de lucha de nuestros pueblos y constituye un formidable estímulo para continuar adelante, conscientes de que seguiremos en resistencia hasta vencer.

    Ante el plan desintegrador del imperialismo y la derecha conservadora, oligárquica y neoliberal, opongamos el plan integrador, soberano y digno de nuestros pueblos. Unámonos para exigir nuestro derecho al desarrollo, a la vida y al porvenir. La unidad antimperialista es la táctica y la estrategia de la victoria.

    ¡Señores imperialistas, Manos Fuera de Cuba!

    ¡Los pueblos seguimos en lucha!

    ¡Hasta la victoria siempre!

    A palletizing robot from Honeywell Intelligrated on the show floor of PackExpo 2019. (Image source: Design News / Honeywell Intelligrated) 

    Rather than selling equipment to its plant and warehouse customers, Honeywell Intelligrated is creating solutions that include a range of technologies. As the name Intelligrated implies, Honeywell is acting like an integrator, by providing a range of equipment and software to solve warehouse, plant, and packaging solutions from concept to operation.

    “We’re expanding our smart robotic offerings to provide end-to-end solutions to make work cells more efficient,” Joseph Lui, VP and general manager of robotics, computer vision and AI at Honeywell Intelligrated, told Design News at PackExpo 2019. “We can be a single source for autonomation for our customers. That’s automation with a human touch.”

    Lui noted that the use of technology – including voice-guided solutions for workers to increase picking efficiencies and automated mobile robots for transporting items quickly – is just the start of the digital transformation of warehouse and manufacturing operations. “The next 10 years will see a revolution in how these centers work and operate,” said Lui.

    Partnering to Build a Collection of Technologies

    To accomplish this, Honeywell has brought together the expertise from a range of companies and equipment providers, including software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators. “In the digital technology space, we’re connecting warehouse operations to increase efficiencies by employing advanced solutions that include machine vision, smart robotics, augmented reality, and voice technologies,” said Lui.

    As part of the buildout for creating solutions, Honeywell has partnered with Fetch Robotics to provide autonomous mobile robots for effectively fulfilling orders. The robots operate safely alongside human workers to transport items through distribution centers without human guidance or fixed paths. Honeywell is also utilizing a number of other robot companies. “In additional to Fetch, Honeywell has created strategic partnerships and investments in Soft Robotics and Attabotics,” said Lui.

    In order to blend these technologies into solutions, Honeywell has created space where all the technologies can be integrated. “We’ve taken these investments, and established a robotics center of excellence,” said Lui.

    Curating a Collection of Technologies

    The investments to build out Honeywell’s logistics and packaging solutions reach beyond robotics and into advances that are still in world of academics and start-ups. “We’re investing in partnerships with software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators to create new solutions for both simple and complex needs,” said Lui.

    In order to reach some of the bleeding edge technology, Honeywell has engaged Carnegie Mellon University. “Our collaboration with AI researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center is helping to develop breakthrough technologies for distribution centers,” said Lui. “The focus is on building architecture relying on artificial intelligence and advanced robotic systems for advanced supply chain demands.”

    To support the packaged solutions, Honeywell has created platform that enables the technology elements. “Part of the collaboration comes from the Honeywell Universal Robotics Controller (HURC). This is a high-performance platform for vision, planning, and motion,” said Lui. “The HURC leverages the machine learning and robotic control software to provide the processing power to handle volumes of real-time data for faster perception and more effective action. The HURC uses a virtual environment for simulation, testing, and troubleshooting to drive rapid solution deployment.”

    Rob Spiegel has covered automation and control for 19 years, 17 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cyber security. For 10 years, he was owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.

    Majority Of U.S. Voters Say President Trump Will Be Re-Elected In 2020 Despite Impeachment Process

    Daily Mail: Comfortable majority of voters say Trump WILL be re-elected in 2020 despite impeachment process – including one-third of Democrats

    * A new poll found that 56 percent of registered voters believe President Trump will win again in 2020
    * That includes 85 percent of Republicans, 51 percent of independents and 35 percent of Democrats, according to the Politico/Morning Consult survey
    * Pollsters found that voters believed that Trump's voters were twice as likely than Hillary Clinton's to be 'very motivated' to go vote
    * Another poll found that the percentage of voters who believe Trump should win re-election hasn't significantly changed since the impeachment inquiry opened

    A majority of registered voters believe President Trump will win again in 2020.

    A new Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 56 percent of all voters said Trump will be re-elected next year. The president obviously has an edge with Republicans, with 85 percent saying a Trump 2.0 is happening.

    But a majority of independents - 51 percent - agreed. Even a third of Democrats, 35 percent, said they believed there would be four more years of President Trump.

    WNU Editor: He will be difficult to defeat. President Trump has the advantage of the incumbency and the bully-pulpit. The economy is also doing well, and his base overwhelmingly supports him. The Democrat candidates for President are also not inspiring, and I have trouble seeing them being able to attract independent voters. But the election is still far away. A lot can happen in 12 months.

    Should CIA Director Gina Haspel Protect The Ukraine Whistleblower From President Trump?

    NBC: Intel officials want CIA Director Gina Haspel to protect Ukraine whistleblower from Trump

    As Trump allies denounce the whistleblower, pressure is building on CIA Director Gina Haspel to take a stand, say current and ex intelligence officials.

    WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump and his allies continue to denounce the CIA whistleblower whose complaint led to an impeachment investigation, pressure is building on the spy agency's director, Gina Haspel, to take a stand on the matter, current and former intelligence officials tell NBC News.

    "It will be incumbent on her to protect the whistleblower — and by extension, the organization — moving forward," Marc Polymeropoulos, a recently retired CIA officer who oversaw operations in Europe and Russia, said in an interview. "This is a seminal moment for her leadership, and I'm confident she will do the right thing."

    So far, Haspel has been publicly silent as Trump has railed about the whistleblower, a CIA analyst, on Twitter. So has the director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire.

    Read more ....

    WNU Editor: There is a problem with this "CIA analyst". He was removed from the White House for lying and leaking. He is implicated in filing a complaint against President Trump and Ukraine that has led to this impeachment inquiry, even though his complaint is at odds with the transcript that was released. He is a well known Democrat activist who is closely affiliated with former Obama intelligence officials whose opposition to President Trump is well known. Bottom line. This is a person who has used his CIA position to pursue a political agenda against the President and his policies. In this context, this is someone that I am sure CIA Director Gina Haspel does not want to step in and defend.

    Democrats' 'Star Impeachment Witness' Admits He Was Not On The Trump-Ukraine Call, And That His Sole Source Of Information Was From The NY Times

    Posted: 06 Nov 2019 09:17 PM PST


    Zero Hedge: Democrats' 'Star Witness' Admits He Wasn't On Trump-Ukraine Call, Sole Source Was NY Times

    House Democrats have released the latest in the series of heavily-redacted transcripts of the secret hearings they had undertaken in recent weeks - that of Bill Taylor - the top US diplomat in Ukraine - ahead of his public testimony next week.

    As The Hill notes, Taylor is viewed as a key witness who previously testified in meticulous detail about what he considered an effort by Trump and his allies to pressure Ukraine into opening investigations that would benefit Trump politically.

    In leaked copies of his 15-page opening statement, Taylor voiced concerns that the Trump administration had withheld nearly $400 million in aid as leverage to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into interference in the 2016 election and former Vice President Joe Biden, one of his leading 2020 political rivals.

    Read more ....

    WNU Editor: When you listen to the main stream media they are saying that Ambassador Bill Taylor is a critical witness to President Trump's demand for a quid-pro-quo from the Ukraine government on military aid and an investigation on the Bidens .... Why William Taylor's testimony is central to the impeachment inquiry (PBS). But when you read his transcript .... READ: Testimony Of William Taylor, Acting U.S. Envoy To Ukraine (NPR), the story is very different where he admits that his source of information comes SOLELY from the New York Times?!?!?! You gotta be kidding me. His sole source of information that he is basing his testimony on is from the New York Times?!?!?! It is not surprising that the main stream media is ignoring this critical admission. Kudos to the above post from Zero Hedge and The Federalist .... Testimony Transcript Shows William Taylor Never Talked To Trump, Wasn't Even On July 25 Phone Call (The Federalist) for their summary and analysis on Bill Taylor's testimony. As for the Democrats hoping that he will be their "star witness" next week, my advice to them is that they find a better witness.

    Reuters: Iran fuels centrifuges, resumes uranium enrichment at Fordow

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran resumed uranium enrichment at its underground Fordow nuclear facility, the country's Atomic Energy Organisation (AEOI) said on Thursday, further stepping away from its 2015 nuclear deal with major powers.

    The agreement bans enrichment and nuclear material from Fordow. But with feedstock gas entering its centrifuges, the facility, built inside a mountain, will move from the permitted status of research plant to being an active nuclear site.

    "After all successful preparations ... injection of uranium gas to centrifuges started on Thursday at Fordow ... all the process has been supervised by the inspectors of the U.N. nuclear watchdog," the AEOI said in a statement, Iranian media reported

    Michael Oren, The Atlantic: The Coming Middle East Conflagration

    Israel is bracing itself for war with Iranian proxies, as Tehran escalates its provocations. But what will the United States do if conflict comes?

    The senior ministers of the Israeli government met twice last week to discuss the possibility of open war with Iran. They were mindful of the Iranian plan for a drone attack from Syria in August, aborted at the last minute by an Israeli air strike, as well as Iran's need to deflect attention from the mass protests against Hezbollah's rule in Lebanon. The ministers also reviewed the recent attack by Iranian drones and cruise missiles on two Saudi oil installations, reportedly concluding that a similar assault could be mounted against Israel from Iraq.

    The Israel Defense Forces, meanwhile, announced the adoption of an emergency plan, code-named Momentum, to significantly expand Israel's missile defense capacity, its ability to gather intelligence on embedded enemy targets, and its soldiers' preparation for urban warfare. Israeli troops, especially in the north, have been placed on war footing. Israel is girding for the worst and acting on the assumption that fighting could break out at any time.

    Media Upset That Trump's Son Tweets Name Of Alleged Whistleblower Even Though His Name Was Revealed Last Week

    AFP: Impeachment: Trump's son tweets name of alleged whistleblower

    Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump's son published on Wednesday the name of the alleged anonymous whistleblower whose complaint fired the impeachment inquiry against Trump, breaking strict conventions for protecting officials who reveal wrongdoing in government.

    Amid calls by the president himself to expose the whistleblower, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the name of a CIA analyst which has circulated online for weeks, and linked to a Breitbart news article implying the person was pro-Democrat and anti-Trump.

    AFP could not independently verify the whistleblower's identity and is not publishing the name.

    ISIS Launched A Failed Attack On A Tajikistan Border Outpost With Uzbekistan

    DW: Tajikistan: 17 killed in border outpost attack

    Twenty masked gunmen launched a failed attack on a Tajik outpost on the border with Uzbekistan. The rare attack was quashed when border forces launched a counter operation and killed most of the raiders.

    At least 17 people were killed in an overnight raid by armed men on an outpost on the border between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, Tajik authorities said on Wednesday.

    "An armed group of 20 unknown masked individuals attacked a border outpost … using firearms," said Tajikistan's national security committee, according to Russian state-run news agency TASS.

    Tajikistan's border forces said the assailants were members of the "Islamic State" (IS) militant group in Afghanistan.

    At least five of the gunmen were detained and later provided critical intelligence during interrogations, authorities said.

    World Leaders Warn Iran To Stick To Nuclear Deal

    ABC News Online: World leaders warn Iran to stick to nuclear deal, as it begins injecting uranium gas into centrifuges

    World leaders have called on Iran to fulfil the terms of its 2015 nuclear deal, after it begins injecting uranium gas into centrifuges at its underground Fordow nuclear facility.

    Iran has begun to further distance itself from a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers that curbed its atomic work, local media reported on Wednesday (local time).

    The deal bans nuclear material from Fordow and, with the injection of uranium gas into its centrifuges, the facility will move from its permitted status of research plant to become an active nuclear site.

    HONG KONG: One reason Hong Kong protesters have turned their focus so quickly from a controversial extradition law to income inequality is simmering anger at the cost of housing in the worlds least affordable market by far. A target of their resentment is the territorys property tycoons, who with the help of a pliant local government have for years kept housing supply far lower than demand, amassing land holdings but developing them at a rate that ensured rising prices.

    Comentario en 696. LOS REPATRIADOS DE EL PUERTO, DESDE CUBA Y FILIPINAS: 1898. CREACIÓN DE LA CRUZ ROJA LOCAL. (I) por Manuel Luque González

     Cache   
    Hola a todos, la historia que quiero contarles es bastante larga: intentaré resumirla en todo lo posible. Hace poco más de cuatro años, me refirieron las memorias de uno de aquellos soldados que combatieron tanto a las fuerzas norteamericanas del General Merrit como a los Katipuneros de Emilio Aguinaldo en la guerra independentista hispano filipina. Cuatro años llevo de investigación para tan sólo escribir cuatrocientas setenta y una páginas: poco para lo que aún tengo proyectado. Parte de esa historia aparece narrada en un libro de Luis de Val, ¡Morir por la patria! Tomo II y es la que ha dado pie a iniciar la búsqueda de información para terminar esta particular novela de ficción histórica. Aquí empieza la dificultad; uno de aquellos héroes era natural de Cantillana, Sevilla. De nombre Juan Gómez apodado “Chamizo,” curiosamente este el cognomen coincide con el apellido de aquél héroe del valle de Abdalajís que resistió un asedio numantino en la iglesia del poblado de Baler (conocido posteriormente por la película “Los últimos de Filipinas” que tanto ha tergiversado la historia). Junto a este valiente viajó hasta España una princesa tagala, Verónica Espino Samonte, promotora, por necesidad, de la manufactura del mantón de Manila en esta localidad sevillana. Mi problema radica en: dónde y cómo encontrar información acerca de esta pareja. Tengan en cuenta que fueron repatriados bien entrado el siglo XIX junto con una treintena de soldados olvidados en campos los de prisioneros y salvados por la intercesión de ambos. En concreto sobre las hazañas de este matrimonio se escribió mucho y así lo recogen los diarios de la época, pero… para acceder al consulado filipino, archivo de indias de Sevilla, Portal PARES, Archivo Histórico Nacional de Madrid, archivo militar de Guadalajara y… un sinfín de lugares donde poder recibir información al respecto necesito saber: nombre y apellidos de este personaje. Así entre otros necesito el tomo I del citado libro de Luis de Val, ¡Morir por la patria! y cualquier información que hayan recopilado donde aparezca algo al respecto: listado de los batallones de cazadores expedicionarios, registros de embarque de ida a Filipinas y regreso a España, rol de repatriados y por último y no menos importante el nombre de aquellos soldados que salvaron su vida en este último desenlace de la guerra para poder añadirlos a la novela y poder narrar sus historias. Gracias por su dedicación. Saludos M.L.González

    La preponderancia del Slim

     Cache   

    ÍNDICE POLÍTICO

    FRANCISCO RODRÍGUEZ

     

    ¿Quién lo dijera? En estos días, en estas horas, el nuevo Instituto Federal de Telecomunicaciones (Ifetel) tiene en su poder la posibilidad de que México dé el paso a la “segunda transición hacia la gobernabilidad democrática efectiva” que, de acuerdo a un estudio del Banco Mundial reduciría la ''creciente polarización social y ayudaría a superar los obstáculos sociopolíticos'' que generan los grupos de poder en el país.

     

    Le platico hoy de un estudio del organismo multilateral en el que se apunta la correlación que en nuestro país existe entre la concentración del mercado y de la riqueza con la influencia política y en la toma de decisiones, lo que inequívocamente debilita la gobernabilidad.

    Y tiene el Ifetel unas horas, unos días –hasta el domingo próximo-- para poner en su lugar al grupo de interés, encabezado por Carlos Slim, pues abarca mucho más de la mitad del mercado de la telefonía en el territorio nacional.

    Un acto de justicia, sí, pero que también persigue alcanzar la gobernabilidad tan erosionada en los últimos sexenios.

    Ya lo decía Aristóteles: “Tan injusto es tratar desigual a los iguales como igual a los desiguales”. Y declarando preponderante al grupo de Slim (Telmex y América Móvil), a quien hasta ahora se ha tratado igual que a sus desiguales competidores, es muy posible que la sociedad resulte beneficiada con mejores servicios y tarifas más bajas que las que ahora impone a su arbitrio este grupo de interés.

    Este trato igual al que reciben sus desiguales ha permitido que las empresas de Slim sean las preponderantes en telefonía. Telmex domina el 80% del mercado de la que es fija, el 70% del mercado celular y el 75% de la banda ancha.

    Pero no tiene la culpa el indio…

    Han sido las anteriores administraciones públicas las que han otorgado a las empresas de Slim una preponderancia aún mayor en dependencias federales, gobiernos estatales, delegacionales y municipales.

    Así, a nivel gobierno el dominio de Telmex es aún mayor: 80% del gasto en telecomunicaciones del gobierno se hace en empresas de Carlos Slim

     

    GOBIERNOS, MEJORES CLIENTES DE SLIM

     

    En tanto América Móvil y sus filiales sean agentes preponderantes, su acceso a concursos y licitaciones públicas debería restringirse para fomentar la competencia, para dar oportunidad a los desiguales.

    Hoy, las entidades públicas federales que contratan el 100% de sus telefonías fija y móvil con Telmex y Telcel son la propia Comisión Federal de Competencia, pero también la Secretaría de Marina, la Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional, el ISSSTE, el Consejo de Promoción Turística, la Secretaría de Educación Pública, el INFONAVIT, la Procuraduría General de la República, el CONACYT y Pemex Refinación.

    Los gobiernos de Chihuahua, Tabasco y Sinaloa también contratan todas sus telecomunicaciones con Telmex y Telcel.

    En el Distrito Federal, donde mayor competencia existe, también hay organismos públicos que destinan todos sus recursos al monopolio: Azcapotzalco, Cuajimalpa, Tlalpan, Magdalena Contreras, Miguel Hidalgo, Iztapalapa, Iztacalco, la Jefatura de Gobierno del DF, Recursos materiales del DF, Oficialía Mayor del DF, Secretaría del Trabajo y Fomento al Empleo, Aguas del DF, Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico del DF, Procuraduría General y de Justicia del DF, Secretaría de Gobierno del DF, Secretaría de Desarrollo Rural del DF, Instituto de Acceso a la Información Pública del DF, Secretaría de Seguridad Pública del DF, entre otras.

    Hay entidades públicas que, sin alcanzar el 100% de su telefonía fija y móvil con Telmex y Telcel, gastan más del 50% en esas empresas, como CAPUFE, 98%; Secretaría de Salud, 98%; IMSSS, 97%; Secretaría de Agricultura, 89%; Secretaría de Desarrollo Social, 83%; Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores, 80%; Secretaría del Trabajo y Previsión Social, 78%; Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes, 78%; Secretaría de Turismo, 76%; Secretaría del Medio Ambiente, 75%; Secretaría de Economía, 70%.

    Hay muy pocas dependencias federales que contratan menos del 50% con el monopolio de Carlos Slim: Nafinsa, 44%; Secretaría de la Función Pública, 34%; Secretaría de la Reforma Agraria, 31%; Presidencia de la República, 24%;    Ifetel, 22%; Secretaría de Energía, 20%; Conaculta, 19%; Secretaría de Hacienda, 4%.

    La única que no contrata con Slim es la Lotería Nacional.

    Y así tenemos que ha sido el propio gobierno ha incubado el huevo de la serpiente que amenaza su principal facultad: la gobernabilidad.

    ¿Decidirán, en estas horas, en estos días, darle fin al monopolio los comisionados del Ifetel? 

    Índice Flamígero: ¿En qué bisnes andará metido el procurador de Justicia (sic) del DF, Rodolfo Fernando Ríos Garza? Recibo un correo de un agente judicial (plenamente identificado por este escribidor-- en el que me dice “ahora ya no somos investigadores de delitos, ahora cuidamos los dineros de los banqueros dueños de Banorte, Banamex y Bansefi. Sí, ahora descuidamos a los ciudadanos, sus bienes y su seguridad, pues existe un operativo encubierto, jajaja, de policias de investigacion en esos tres bancos. ¿Será que los otros bancos no le llegaron al precio? Jajaja”. ¿Es bisnes, don Rodolfo?

    Methods: Strong growth & profitability

     Cache   

    Methods logoFiled accounts from Methods – which includes Methods Business & Digital Technology (MBDT), Methods Analytics, and CoreAzure - reveal a fantastic growth and profitability story for the company in the year to end April 2019.

    For the combined businesses, turnover growth was 31% to £97.5m (up from £74.1m). The bulk of the revenues come from MBDT, which boosted revenues by 29% to £85.3m and reported an operating profit margin (before share-based payments) of 5.8% vs. 4.7% in FY18. The smaller, though higher margin, businesses also performed well. Methods Analytics, which does what it says on the tin, grew revenues by 40% to £5.7m, and operating profits by 73% to £715K. Meanwhile, CoreAzure, which designs, builds and support Microsoft technologies, with a focus on Azure, grew revenues by 70% to £6.5m, and operating profits by 146% to £504.2K.

    Methods has established a strong position in the UK public sector market over the years and has done well picking up opportunities on the Government’s Digital Marketplace. Around 75% of its turnover is from central government (including agencies and arms-length bodies). The propensity of Government to try and work with a wider range of players, particularly in the digital application development space, has played to its advantage. But it is not resting on its laurels. The company continues to invest to ensure better delivery and more focus. Already, having clearer business lines has helped. In addition, in the last period, the company has invested in a new London HQ, doubling its office space, as well as in satellite offices in Birmingham and Bristol; in the establishment of an emerging technology hub as an incubator for new data-driven technologies; and in a new development division to enhance engineering skills and cybersecurity competencies and amplify the impact of its existing offers.

    Methods is aware that it needs to up its game in order to continue competing effectively, and it is doing just that i.e. ensuring that it can handle more complex systems development and integration. It is recruiting heavily in areas like AWS skills in order to support that. More Brexit delays could hamper its high growth ambitions for the current year; however, investing in new development capability does seem to be opening a wider range of opportunities, particularly within the company’s strategic client base.

    Why the head of Procter & Gamble's startup studio rents out a movie theater for her team every quarter to spark innovation at the $299 billion retail giant

     Cache   

    Leigh Radford

    • Leigh Radford, who heads Procter & Gamble Ventures, tries to embody the Silicon Valley mentality within the startup studio. The unit, which sits within the sprawling consumer goods giant, is another example of the steps legacy firms are taking to compete against upstart, direct-to-consumer rivals. 
    • Many of those innovation efforts, however, still fail. In Radford's case, she convinced management to give her a direct line to the CEO and resources to hire top talent, among other demands. That set-up has helped P&G Ventures get at least one product on store shelves, with several others expected to hit the market soon. 
    • P&G Ventures relies on so-called speed teams, or cohorts that are able to bypass standard company procedures to more quickly secure funding to invest in startups, place media buys, or pay suppliers. 
    • Click here for more BI Prime stories.

    "We got here from hard work, patience, and humility. So I want to tell you: Don't think the world owes you anything because it doesn't. The world doesn't owe you a thing."

    That simple message was stated by actress Jennifer Lawrence in the movie "Joy," about a successful, self-made entrepreneur named Joy Mangano.

    It resonated deeply with Leigh Radford, the head of Procter & Gamble Ventures, and the culture she was trying to build in the company's innovation arm. The movie is "about risk taking and just the can-do attitude to make the impossible happen," she told Business Insider. 

    Now every quarter, Radford's team rents out a movie theater to watch to watch films like "Joy" and "Hidden Figures" that push entrepreneurial messages of breaking boundaries and taking risks. Afterwards, the group — which includes individuals from Procter & Gamble's research and development, supply chain, finance, and marketing departments — discusses how the main themes of the movie can be applied to work or personal lives.

    It's just one way Radford pushes the Silicon Valley hustle mentality at Procter & Gamble Ventures, a startup studio within the sprawling consumer goods giant that has produced products like household insecticide Zevo and beauty wand Opté Precision Skincare. Home Depot and Target carried Zevo this past summer, while Opté will officially launch in 2020. 

    Such "innovation arms" are increasingly common in corporate America. Models vary, but several top programs employ a combination of both internal teams focused on developing new products and an external venture arm that seeks to invest in or purchase promising startups. Procter & Gamble's is the latter, though it also has an incubator called Signal Accelerator and recently launched a partnership with venture firm M13. 

    Despite the abundant resources large businesses have at their disposal, many internal innovation projects fail. The problems can be cultural, like not giving employees the protection to take risks.

    In other instances, however, entrepreneurial-minded people may find corporate America slow and stifling. 

    "That's one of the biggest fear entrepreneurs have is [that] they're going to get lost in the corporation and they're going to lose their agility and speed," said Radford.

    Radford, who started P&G Ventures in 2015, recently outlined how her group overcame that challenge. Much of it started with creating a foundation that allowed the unit to operate independently from the rest of the company. 

    4 demands for Proctor & Gamble's CEO

    When Radford was initially approached by then-CEO A.G. Lafley about starting P&G Ventures, she was skeptical.

    While she knew the company could offer invaluable advice when it came to building and scaling products, she was also aware how difficult it could be to innovate inside a giant. 

    So Radford had four demands:

    • A direct report to the CEO and access to the board of directors;
    • Resources to hire and retain top talent;
    • The center needed to be highly visible within P&G, and;
    • The team needed flexibility from organizational constraints to stay out of the crosshairs of the other business units.

    Once those were all agreed to, Radford went to work. To get up to speed quickly, she began to tap into her network for advice. She also figured out quickly what areas P&G Ventures would focus on.

    To prevent competition, the team would seek out companies that had promising products that Procter & Gamble didn't sell, like caregiving and independent aging. That made conversations with other business units easier because it became all about "incremental topline growth."

    "Our base businesses are doing a great job innovating on their own and finding ways to disrupt their own businesses, but we focus on something very different," Radford said.

    The Speed Team

    Based on Radford's initial outreach, one thing became abundantly clear: her team had to be able to move quickly.

    She knew P&G was great at supporting billion-dollar business lines like Bounty and Dawn. But supporting newer ventures with valuations less than $100,000 would require a whole new set of processes.

    "We've got to bring agility, we've got to bring speed; these entrepreneurs are not going to wait for us," she said.

    First, Radford began tracking all the items that took longer than 24 hours to get resolved. Anything past that timeline and she'd personally roll up her sleeves to elevate it. Radford also formed cross-functional teams on key areas like payments, media buying, and supplier registration to figure out what pain points could prevent startups from working with P&G Ventures.

    One critical barrier, for example, was getting funding approved and to the startups. It shouldn't be too surprising that a corporation the size of Procter & Gamble would want to do ample due diligence in the organizations it chose to invest in.

    But Radford knew they couldn't afford to wait the standard 60 days it took to get payments processed. She worked with leadership and took the process down to just 11 days. "It's risk, but it's balanced risk and that allows us to be very responsive to the outside world which is critical to being credible," said Radford.

    Another instance was media buying. The P&G Ventures team knew that for its startups to be successful, they needed to be able to market directly to consumers and do it quickly. Radford convinced management to let the team purchase media directly, instead of working through a buying agency — a process that can take upwards of two months.

    'We kill things fast. We kill things early.'

    Like any other business unit, P&G Ventures needed to produce results.

    The team evaluates its investments on a 10-year basis, similar to how a standard venture fund determines the appropriate rate-of-return on its startup funds.

    "We kill things fast. We kill things early," Radford said. "If we believe there is not a solution that is meaningful and differentiated in the market, we let go pretty quick.

    An Amazon-focused tech firm has hired a vet of the e-commerce giant to build advertising tools for sellers

     Cache   

    Teikametrics Alasdair McLean-Foreman and Srini Guddanti

    • Amazon tech firm Teikametrics has hired ex-Amazon ad exec Srini Guddanti as its first chief product officer.
    • Teikametrics is one of a handful of tech firms that pitches Amazon sellers so-called deep data, like the cost of goods sold.
    • Teikametrics CEO Alasdair McLean-Foreman said Guddanti's insider expertise would help sellers grow their revenue on Amazon.
    • Click here for more BI Prime stories.

    As Amazon's ad business continues to grow, a cottage industry of tech firms have popped up that promise sellers proprietary data and insights into the platform that Amazon doesn't provide.

    Boston-based Teikametrics is one such firm and has hired former Amazon Advertising exec Srini Guddanti as its first chief product officer. Teikametrics sells software that helps sellers and agencies manage their ad spend and listings. The company also helps sellers with branding and figuring out which platforms to sell on.

    Guddanti worked at Amazon for 14 years, mostly in finance roles across Amazon's retail, Prime and advertising business. Since 2016, he worked in a director role on Amazon Advertising and oversaw Sponsored Ads, one of Amazon's bigger ad formats.

    Guddanti said he left Amazon because he was interested in using his background to build something new. He will work on Teikametrics' data science and machine learning tools, create new products for Amazon's newer ad formats, and build out a reporting tool for Amazon's app.

    Teikametrics CEO Alasdair McLean-Foreman said he met Guddanti three years ago and that he brings insider expertise that will help sellers grow their revenue on Amazon.

    He said that Amazon sellers face challenges like handling logistics, pricing and advertising. For example, sellers need help figuring out how to distribute ad spend across formats, he said. Teikametrics says that its data includes seller-specific stats that Amazon does not have, like the cost of goods sold and data about business objectives. Its clients include Clarks, Razer, and Mark Cuban Companies.

    "If you're a seller, a brand or even a bigger company, you are flying blind," he said. "In a closed loop, you need to understand inventory and performance to understand advertising, and that is something that Amazon cannot do themselves."

    The e-commerce firm is growing as Amazon adds more sellers

    For its part, Amazon has increasingly recognized advertisers' need for third parties to dig into data. In August, it launched an online directory tool listing about 60 vetted agencies and tools for advertisers to work with. Facebook, Google, Twitter and Pinterest also have programs with advertising and marketing companies that allow third parties to sell ad space and develop strategies for advertisers.

    For example, Sellics is another Amazon-specific firm that recently raised $10 million to grow its partnerships with agencies.

    Seven-year-old Teikametrics has raised $10 million in Series A funding. McLean-Foreman said an estimated two million companies sell goods on Amazon. As that number grows, Teikametrics is opening a 10-person office in Seattle to be closer to Amazon's headquarters. The firm currently has 95 employees.

    Amazon made $3.59 billion in "other revenue" during the third quarter, most of which is advertising. Research firm eMarketer projects Amazon to make $11.33 billion from advertising this year.

    • 40-year-old fashion retailer Express is jumping on the direct-to-consumer bandwagon with its own line of health and wellness products called UpWest.
    • The line includes clothing, sleep aids, CBD products and home products from other manufacturers.
    • UpWest hopes to stand out by building a community with branded content and events as direct brands Goop and Glossier have done in a big way.
    • Legacy companies launching their own direct brands may have a leg-up on the supply side but don't necessarily understand demand as well as DTC brands do, DTC investor Nik Sharma said.

    The swift rise of direct-to-consumer upstarts has forced legacy brands to rethink their businesses. Among them is 40-year-old fashion retailer Express, which is launching a direct-to-consumer wellness brand called UpWest.

    With UpWest, Express is trying to take a crack at the $4.2 trillion global wellness industry, said Jamie Schisler, UpWest CEO. The line includes clothing, sleep aids, CBD products, and home products like candles and bath salts from other manufacturers.

    "Express is a legacy brand with a long history, but it needs to continue to grow," Schisler told Business Insider. "UpWest helps us get up to speed with the direct-to-consumer trend and changing consumer sentiment, offers us a new segment of consumers we can reach, and lets us grow shareholder value."

    Express's net sales declined 2% to $2.1 billion in 2018.

    UpWest is taking  a page out of DTC brands' playbooks

    UpWest has a team of 11 and handles its own inventory, merchandising and design, and platform (Shopify), but uses Express for areas like supply chain, logistics, and HR. Like typical DTC brands, it will sell its products directly online, and doesn't plan to sell in Express stores, said Schisler.

    UpWest hopes to stand out by building a community with branded content and events as direct brands Goop and Glossier have done in a big way. Its website will feature shopping recommendations and it is using meditation-themed events in Austin, Chicago, Columbus, Denver, and Nashville to promote the new line.

    UpWest will donate 1% of sales up to $1 million annually to like-minded charities including Mental Health America, Freedom Dogs of America, and Random Acts.

    "The world doesn't need another clothing brand," said Schisler. "But there has been a cultural shift within consumer's minds in terms of what they are looking for from brands. They're looking at brands to offer solutions, which means that brands need to be not just transactional, but transformational."

    P&G, Verizon, Kellogg's and others have also incubated DTC brands

    As the DTC economy grows, legacy companies are trying to catch up. P&G has acquired DTC companies, Coca-Cola has invested in buzzy startups, and others like Verizon and Kellogg's have built direct brands like Visible and Happy Inside, respectively.

    Express decided to built its own DTC brand because they can help each other, Schisler said. Express can learn how to work faster from UpWest while the latter can tap Express for manufacturing and distribution.

    "The capital structures of acquisition deals is often structured to satisfy current ownership," he said. "This made more sense for us."

    Legacy companies launching their own direct brands may have a leg-up on the supply side, but they don't necessarily understand demand as well as independent DTC companies, said DTC investor Nik Sharma.

    "Legacy companies only understand what SKUs sell, but they don't always understand the consumers and how they shop," he said.

    EN HERMOSILLO

    Los Mayos de Navojoa rompieron un empate con un ataque de tres anotaciones en la parte alta de la séptima entrada y superaron 7-2 a los Yaquis.

    Paúl León conectó de 4-3 con una carrera producida y una anotada, Jamie Westbrook añadió un doble remolcador de una más, y Telvin Nash, Alejandro González y Manuel Orduño aportaron sendos sencillos remolcadores para Navojoa.

    Antonio Garzón (1-0) retiró a los dos únicos bateadores que enfrentó y se benefició de ofensiva de sus compañeros para apuntarse el triunfo. La derrota fue para Edwin Fierro (0-1), castigado con tres anotaciones en un relevo sin outs.

    FoI release shows how embassy and FCO staff sought to make sense of mystery illnesses

    Official emails and diplomatic telegrams marked as sensitive reveal for the first time how the British government scrambled to understand a series of alleged “sonic attacks” on US diplomats who became ill in mysterious circumstances while on duty in Cuba.

    The US government ordered all non-essential staff at its embassy in Havana to return home after dozens of diplomats and family members developed headaches, dizziness and problems with balance, concentration and sleeping in a wave of illness that struck between 2016 and 2018.

    Ketagih main permainan komputer, remaja 17 tahun maut akibat strok

     Cache   

    BANGKOK - Akibat terlalu leka bermain permainan video tanpa henti, seorang remaja dari Thailand menemui ajalnya kerana mengalami strok.

    Mendiang berusia 17 tahun yang dikenali sebagai Piyawat Harikun dikatakan telah meluangkan cuti persekolahannya dengan bermain permainan komputer di dalam bilik. Kedua ibu bapanya turut memaklumkan bahawa Harikun akan berjaga sepanjang malam untuk bermain permainan komputer. Menjelang siang pula, Harikun akan menarik tirai bilik dan menyambung permainan tersebut.

    Ibu bapa Harikun pernah cuba untuk menghalang anak mereka untuk berhenti bermain. Malah, mereka juga sanggup membawa makanan ke bilik anaknya namun Harikun tetap berdegil.

    Bagaimanapun pada petang Isnin yang lalu, bapa Harikun iaitu Jaranwit telah masuk ke bilik anaknya dan mendapati Harikun dalam keadaan melutut di atas lantai. Pada waktu itu, Jaranwit telah berusaha untuk membangunkan anaknya namun gagal.

    Mayat Harikun segera diperiksa oleh pegawai perubatan dan hasil keputusan mendapati mendiang telah meninggal dunia di antara 8 ke 10 jam sebelum ditemui. Punca kematian dipercayai akibat serangan jantung dan strok kerana bermain permainan komputer secara berterusan dan tanpa henti sepanjang malam.

    "Anak saya seorang yang bijak di sekolah tetapi dia mempunyai masalah besar iaitu ketagih permainan komputer. Saya sudah cuba memberi amaran mengenai ketagihannya yang melampau dan dia berjanji akan cuba mengurangkannya. Malangnya semua sudah terlambat," kata Jaranwit sambil menasihati ibu bapa lain agar melarang anak masing-masing untuk mengikuti tabiat buruk itu.

    Ketagih main ‘game’ tanpa henti, remaja Thailand maut ekoran strok

     Cache   

    UDON THANI – Akibat bermain permainan pada komputernya sepanjang malam tanpa henti, seorang remaja, Piyawat Harikun yang berusia 17 tahun dilaporkan meninggal dunia akibat serangan strok.

    Piyawat yang difahamkan sedang bercuti bermula pada penghujung Oktober lalu itu, sering menghabiskan masa dengan bermain permainan komputer sebelum dijumpai tidak sedarkan diri oleh bapanya.

    Gambar Hiasan/Unsplash

    Menurut bapanya, Jaranwit Piyawat, dia pergi ke bilik anaknya pada Isnin lalu dan ketika itulah dia mendapati tubuh anaknya berada di bawah seperti terjatuh daripada kerusi. Dia setelah itu cuba untuk mengejutkan anaknya namun gagal.

    “Saya panggil namanya dan menyuruhnya bangun tetapi dia langsung tidak memberi sebarang tindak balas. Saya boleh lihat dia sudah tidak bernyawa lagi”, jelasnya.

    Menurut kedua ibu bapa Piyawat, anak mereka itu akan berjaga sepanjang malam untuk menghabiskan masanya dengan bermain permainan pada komputer. Ketika waktu pagi pula, dia akan menutup langsir dan teruskan bermain.

    Ibu bapanya pula akan membawa makanan ke biliknya dan memintanya untuk berhenti bermain, namun mendiang difahamkan enggan mengurangkan tabiatnya itu.

    “Saya cuba memberi amaran padanya berkenaan dengan ketagihannya yang melampau itu dan dia juga sudah berjanji untuk mengurangkannya. Namun, semuanya sudah terlambat. Dia sudah pergi meninggalkan kami sebelum sempat berubah”.

    Pasukan perubatan yang memeriksa mayat Piyawat tersebut mengesahkan bahawa remaja itu meninggal dunia akibat strok, di mana ia dipercayai berpunca daripada aktiviti bermain komputer dalam tempoh yang panjang tanpa henti.

    “Saya mahu kematian anak saya ini menjadi teladan dan amaran buat para ibu bapa di luar sana yang berhadapan dengan tabiat buruk anak mereka yang ketagihan bermain game. Mereka perlu lebih tegas dalam mengawal ketagihan anak mereka bermain komputer”, akhirinya.

    Akibat mengguna kabel pengecas terkoyak, remaja Thailand maut direnjat elektrik ketika mengecas telefon pintar

     Cache   

    CHAIYAPHUM – Seorang remaja perempuan didapati maut setelah terkena renjatan elektrik dipercayai berpunca daripada penggunaan kabel pengecas telefon bimbit yang sudah terkoyak dan menyentuhi kaki katil besinya.

    Mangsa, Nong Ying yang berusia 17 tahun itu didakwa sedang bermain dengan peranti pintarnya itu semasa ia dicas menggunakan kabel yang telah dibalut dengan pita pelekat ekoran pembalutnya sudah terkoyak.

    Kejadian itu disedari ketika ibu mangsa, Boonpeng Tuponchai yang berusia 47 tahun, menemui mangsa terbaring di atas katilnya sebaik sahaja dia pulang ke rumah mereka yang terletak di Chaiyaphum.

    “Saya fikir anak saya sedang tidur sebelum cuba mengejutnya. Namun, apabila menyentuh sahaja tubuhnya, saya juga mengalami sedikit kejutan elektrik”, jelasnya.

    Dia kemudian dengan pantas cuba menutup suis elektrik yang digunakan itu akan tetapi mangsa tidak dapat diselamatkan lagi.

    Hasil pemeriksaan, mangsa didapati mengalami kesan lecur pada tangan kirinya, yang dipercayai digunakan untuk memegang telefon pintarnya itu.

    Menurut pegawai penyiasat, Kapten Khanti Peansoongnern, punca renjatan tersebut berlaku adalah disebabkan oleh kabel lama yang telah terkoyak dan sudah dibalut beberapa kali.

    “Saya beranggapan bahawa kabel lama itu sudah pun bocor dan menyebabkan renjatan apabila bersentuhan dengan tanah ataupun besi”, katanya.

    Menurutnya, gadis terbabit secara tidak sengaja menyentuh katilnya yang diperbuat daripada besi dan terkena kejutan elektrik. “Namun kita perlu mengumpul bukti dan menjalankan bedah siasat bagi mengesahkan kematiannya”, akhiri Khanti.

    Tidak sengaja menukarkan warna baju isteri, lelaki meminta bantuan warga Twitter untuk kembalikan warna asal

     Cache   

    Mungkin antara kita sudah sedia maklum bahawa apa-apa pakaian berwarna putih hendaklah diasingkan ketika hendak membasuhnya supaya warna lain tidak luntur padanya.

    Namun bagi mereka yang tidak maklum akan perkara ini pasti tidak tahu akan akibat membasuh pakaian berwarna putih bersama pakaian berwarna lain.

    Satu kisah yang memberi pengajaran kepada kita semua ini telah dikongsi oleh seorang pengguna Twitter, @AdliAmirullah.

    Menurut Adli, dia secara tidak sengaja membasuh baju baharu isterinya yang berwarna putih bersama baju baharu berwarna merah. Akibatnya baju baharu berwarna putih tersebut telah bertukar warna menjadi merah jambu.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Kata Adli lagi, apa yang menyedihkan ialah isterinya sengaja membeli baju baharu berwarna putih itu kerana dia tidak pernah memilikinya sebelum ini.

    Kalut dengan apa yang telah terjadi, Adli tidak memberitahu isterinya tentang perkara itu malah cuba mencari solusi terlebih dahulu. Dia juga ada berfikir mahu menyembunyikan baju yang telah bertukar warna itu dan membeli baju yang sama dari kedai.

    Lebih 9 ribu netizen telah memberi tindak balas akan perkara tersebut dengan memberikan pelbagai idea dan cadangan kepada Adli untuk menyelesaikan masalah itu.

    Antaranya ialah rendam baju tersebut menggunakan sabun champaca, basuh baju tersebut dengan lemon, baking soda dan air panas, sabun mandi buku dan macam-macam lagi.

    Adli cuba merendam baju tersebut dengan menggunakan clorox dan sabun dengan harapan warna merah jambu itu akan luntur dan mengembalikan warna asal baju tersebut namun tidak berhasil. Adli benar-benar buntu dan akhirnya mengambil keputusan untuk membeli baju baharu berwarna putih di pasaraya.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Adli terus bergerak ke pasaraya di mana isterinya membeli baju putih tersebut. Dia menyangka baju tersebut dibeli oleh isterinya di Padini namun tidak ditemui di sana

    Adli semakin resah lalu berjalan di seluruh pasaraya untuk mencari kedai yang mana ada menjual baju putih tersebut.

    Nasib menyebelahi Adli apabila dia terjumpa baju putih yang terakhir di sebuah booth pakaian. Adli berasa sangat bersyukur kerana masalahnya kini sudah selesai.

    @AdliAmirullah/Twitter

    Selepas menyelesaikan misi mencari baju putih baharu, Adli berterus terang dengan isterinya tentang apa yang telah terjadi. Sangkanya isterinya akan marah atau merajuk tentang perkara tersebut tetapi lain pula yang jadi. Menurut Adli, isterinya merajuk kerana Adli tidak membawanya bersama ke pasaraya.

    Kisah Adli ini telah di-retweet sebanyak 9 ribu kali dan mendapat 7200 tanda suka. Walaupun Adli bersungguh-sungguh mahu 'menyelamatkan' keadaan tetapi plot twist selepas dia berterus terang dengan isterinya.

    Namun begitu usaha Adli untuk tidak mengecewakan isterinya memang patut dipuji. Adli sememangnya seorang suami yang baik hati dan bertanggungjawab.

    Corporate Partnerships Report

     Cache   
    Reporte de socios corporativos WWF-Ecuador © WWF-EcuadorThe time to act is now. We have put in place a global conservation strategy that reflects the way the world is changing, meets the big environmental challenges of the age and helps us simplify, unite and focus our efforts for greater impact.

    WWF will continue to deliver locally in crucial ecoregions around the world but sharpen our focus on six global goals – wildlife, forests, oceans, freshwater, climate and energy, and food – and three key drivers of environmental degradation – markets, finance and governance. We are creating global communities of practice for each of the goals and drivers composed of specialists from WWF and key external partners. This will foster greater collaboration and innovation, incubating new ideas and taking promising ones to scale, as we unite our efforts toward making ambitious targets a reality.
