IL "RAMMENDO" DELLA STORIA

 Cache   
“Poiché conta solo ciò che sta per essere o che sarà, il passato nella scuola perde qualunque aspetto esemplare e del pari s’indebolisce molto fino a venir meno del tutto il peso della tradizione e la fede nel suo significato… Cancellando così, tra l’altro, una funzione importante della continuità culturale: quella che consente ai membri di qualunque società di percepirsi con delle radici, di sentirsi eredi di qualcosa anziché individui gettati casualmente nella vita.”
Ernesto Galli della Loggia, L’Aula vuota, Marsilio  
Nel suo recente libro L’aula vuota sul declino della scuola (strettamente legato a quello della società italiana) Ernesto Galli della Loggia indica tra le sue cause il venir meno dei saperi umanistici e in particolare il non aver coltivato la memoria storica del nostro Paese. Parlare di memoria storica – italiana ma anche europea – non significa solo riaffermare i valori e i principi costitutivi della civiltà occidentale, ma anche concretamente prendersi cura di ciò che nei secoli si è stratificato: le piazze, i monumenti, gli edifici, insomma tutte le grandi e piccole tracce che ci ricollegano al passato di cui il presente in cui viviamo è il risultato.  
A fronte del quadro pessimistico e allarmato delineato da Galli della Loggia, ma anche di altri intellettuali, non dobbiamo comunque trascurare tutto ciò che nella società opera nel senso opposto, a cominciare dai programmi che da anni vanno in onda su Rai Tre e Rai Storia, come il pregevole Passato e Presente condotto da Paolo Mieli. Nella società civile cittadini illuminati, esponenti di associazioni culturali e di istituzioni locali promuovono miriadi di iniziative per far conoscere all’opinione pubblica fatti, personaggi, luoghi della storia patria; e un’importanza particolare hanno quelle che riguardano il nostro Risorgimento, considerando le deformazioni e il relativo oblio che lo hanno riguardato negli ultimi decenni. Sono a volte lacerti di una storia minore che però, ricuciti pazientemente, nel tempo possono ricostruire il tessuto storico di un paese, di una nazione, dell’Europa.
Un esempio recente, tra i tanti possibili, riguarda una lapide posta a Firenze dal Comune nella centrale via de’ Neri:
A Giuseppe Barellai
soldato dell’Indipendenza italiana
maestro valente nell’Arte della medicina
in quello della carità valentissimo
fondatore degli Ospizi marini
qui morto il III dicembre del MCCCLXXXIV

La riscoperta di questa lapide ormai dimenticata fu l’occasione per organizzare un convegno sulla bellissima figura di questo medico filantropo, che aveva curato i bambini tubercolotici indigenti e realizzato tra l’altro le prime colonie marine; e che fu anche un patriota (partecipò alla battaglia di Curtatone come medico, e fu fatto prigioniero dagli austriaci) e un protagonista della vita pubblica di Firenze nell’Ottocento. Il convegno, promosso dall’Università di Firenze, dal Centro di Documentazione di Storia della Sanità Toscana, dalla Misericordia di Firenze e dal Comitato Fiorentino per il Risorgimento, si svolse nel rinascimentale salone Brunelleschi dell’Ospedale degli Innocenti di Firenze con un buon successo di pubblico. Una storia apparentemente minore del Risorgimento toscano mise invece in evidenza la stretta relazione tra il processo storico unitario del nostro Paese e le dinamiche modernizzatrici della società e della sanità in Toscana e a Firenze. Non solo: l’eco mediatica di questa iniziativa coinvolse anche i docenti e gli allievi della scuola media Barellai di Pratolino vicino a Firenze. Infatti gli studenti, ignari delle ragioni del nome della loro scuola, sotto la guida dei loro insegnanti, fecero una ricerca storica coinvolgendo gli abitanti di Pratolino, realizzarono poi una mostra con documenti, immagini e perfino un video e infine, insieme al comune di Vaglia (di cui Pratolino è una frazione) organizzarono una pubblica e partecipata cerimonia di intitolazione ufficiale della loro scuola a Giuseppe Barellai, non più figura anonima, ma degna di essere annoverata tra quelle che fecero l’Italia. Dunque un esempio, questo, di circuito virtuoso tra società civile e mondo della scuola nella riscoperta del passato di cui i giovani d’oggi si devono riappropriare per stringere un vivo e sentito rapporto con i loro nonni e i loro avi.
Un altro caso di recupero della memoria a partire da una lapide trascurata si è concluso felicemente da pochi giorni. Due anni fa un cultore di storia della Romagna Toscana, discendente di notabili ottocenteschi di San Benedetto in Alpe, denunciò pubblicamente il degrado di una lapide del periodo dei Lorena, precisamente del 1836, posta sul muraglione che dà il nome al passo che collega Forlì e Firenze (oggi punto d’incontro cult per gli appassionati di motociclismo).
Questa strada la si deve infatti al Granduca Leopoldo II, che volle questa infrastruttura per facilitare gli scambi tra la Romagna e la Toscana; scambi commerciali, ma anche culturali, tra i due popoli divisi dall’Appennino. All’apertura della carrozzabile, nel 1836, sul passo fu posta appunto una lapide a ricordo dei lavori voluti dal Granduca e diretti dall’architetto Alessandro Manetti. L’allarme sul degrado e sulla necessità di un rapido restauro ebbe eco presso altri esponenti della comunità tosco-romagnola, presso istituzioni culturali come l’antica e prestigiosa Accademia degli Incamminati di Romagna, presso le amministrazioni locali e ricevette anche il supporto dei Comitati risorgimentali della zona, da Firenze al Mugello e alla Romagna toscana. L’Accademia degli Incamminati si è assunta l’onere della raccolta dei fondi necessari per i lavori di restauro e, vincendo le resistenze burocratiche dei vari enti preposti alla tutela del manufatto in tempi relativamente brevi (data la notoria lentezza dei lavori pubblici in Italia), ha portato a termine i lavori. Sabato 19 ottobre si è svolta una festosa cerimonia d’inaugurazione alla presenza dei sindaci di San Godenzo e di Portico di Romagna e con gli interventi di docenti universitari di Storia e di Economia.
La cura della memoria storica dell’evento è stato invece compito dei Comitati toscani del Risorgimento, in primis quello del Mugello, che hanno promosso un momento di riflessione sull’importanza dell’opera promossa dall’ultimo Granduca di Toscana con un convegno che si terrà sabato 9 novembre a Dicomano e una mostra che verrà inaugurata nella stessa data. Una mostra che nei giorni successivi verrà visitata anche dagli allievi delle scuole di Dicomano. Entra pertanto nelle aule scolastiche un brano di storia non solo locale, ma anche nazionale, in quanto l’esigenza di modernizzazione economica portata avanti dai Lorena in Toscana e in Romagna con la creazione di nuove ed efficienti vie di comunicazione sarà poi sviluppata ulteriormente nella fase decisiva del Risorgimento a partire dal Piemonte di Cavour.
Altri esempi ancora potrebbero essere fatti sull’importanza di questo volontariato culturale presente nella società italiana, che ha il merito di questo “rammendo” del tessuto storico del nostro Paese. Siamo certamente consapevoli dei vuoti culturali che oggi caratterizzano la scuola italiana, ma è incoraggiante sapere che nella società civile esistono ancora forze vitali che si impegnano  per contrastare la perdita della memoria storica di un popolo; e chissà se un cauto ottimismo della volontà possa nel tempo compensare il non infondato pessimismo della ragione.
Sergio Casprini (dal sito del Comitato Fiorentino per il Risorgimento)

Carta a los jueces: Defiendan su independencia y la racionalidad. De Paolo Luers

 Cache   

Publicado en MAS! y EL DIARIO DE HOY, 5 NOVIEMBRE 2019


Cuando se quiere resolver casos penales en los medios, en redes sociales o en la calle, siempre entra en peligro la independencia de la justicia. Más grande se hace este peligro cuando además de los ‘influencers‘, se meten en estos ensayos de justicia popular o mediática los políticos para cosechar en el río revuelto de resentimientos y frustraciones o incluso para ponerse a la cabeza de un movimiento de indignados que desconfían de la justicia y sus administradores. Entonces, puede volverse imposible que actúen con independencia y racionalidad los jueces.
Todos tenemos derecho de criticar a cualquier juez cuando no nos parece su actuación o sentencia. Los jueces no son dioses. Pero son los únicos facultados para administrar justicia, y solo lo pueden hacer bien con independencia. Obviamente con el riesgo de equivocarse. Por esto hay recursos de apelación e instancias superiores que revisarán las sentencias.  
En el caso del magistrado Escalante, acusado de agresión sexual contra una menor, la Cámara Primera de lo Penal no aceptó la tipificación de delito presentada por la Fiscalía. La ola de indignación que desataron va más allá de la crítica, se convirtió en una campaña contra dos magistrados de la Cámara. Piden a gritos que sean investigados por la Fiscalía y ‘depurados’ por la Corte Suprema. Surgen llamados peligrosos. Una ‘influencer’ escribe en Twitter: “Suban los nombres y las caras de los que votaron por esto y haga patria, confróntelos en la calle y pregúnteles si no es delito tocar los genitales de una niña o niño en la calle…” Ya para el acusado exige linchamiento público: “Ya que para el sistema judicial no es delito sugiero que cuando agarren a uno en esas, mejor le den fuego y no lo entreguen al sistema.” 
Solo faltaba que se metiera el presidente. Y lo hizo. Luego de que dijera que la resolución de la Cámara “es una burla a nuestro Estado de Derecho”, uno tras otro sus ministros comenzaron a echar leña al fuego. El secretario de prensa de la Presidencia, usando su cuenta ‘extra oficial’ llamada ‘El Brozo’, publica dos fotos: “Estos son los magistrados q están protegiendo a Eduardo Escalante con la sentencia que dice que tocar a una niña no es un delito”. 
Los ‘influencers’ organizaron una colecta de firmas para pedir a la Fiscalía que apele la sentencia de la Cámara, a pesar de que el Fiscal General ya había anunciado que llevará el caso a la Sala de lo Penal de la Corte Suprema. Aparte de la colecta de firmas convocaron a una manifestación, primero frente a la sede de la Fiscalía y luego frente al Centro Judicial Isidro Menéndez. Y al final resulta que es el presidente de la República que en su cuenta de Twitter convoca a esta manifestación para exigir ‘depuración de jueces’.
Bajo esta presión de la opinión pública, ¿cómo podemos esperar que los jueces de la Corte Suprema van a analizar el caso con independencia? ¿Y cómo van a actuar los jueces de todas las instancias inferiores que en el futuro van a tener que juzgar casos parecidos?
El populismo político, que se ha adueñado no solo del gobierno sino de diputados, incluso de la oposición, de periodistas y columnistas, y obviamente de los ‘influencers’ que dominan las redes sociales, está orquestando toda su presión para generar un ‘populismo judicial’, es decir una justicia que depende de la opinión popular. Esto no lo podemos permitir. Hay que defender la independencia de la justicia. Hay que crear un clima que permita a los jueces y fiscales administrar la justicia con racionalidad, libre de las emociones que predominan en la opinión pública.
No es el presidente de la República el que administra la justicia, define delitos y señala culpables. Mucho menos los ‘influencers’ en las redes sociales. 
¿Y si una mayoría de ciudadanos está de acuerdo con la presión sobre la justicia? No importa, la justicia no puede depender de mayorías populares, sino solamente de jueces independientes que sentencian con criterios técnicos derivados estrictamente de la ley. La justicia no es democrática porque todos la podemos influenciar, sino por la independencia de sus instituciones.
El ‘caso Escalante’ irá a apelación, y la Sala Penal de la Corte Suprema tendrá la última palabra sobre el carácter de delito. Pero ojo: Ya sabemos a qué clase de insultos y amenazas serán objetos los magistrados de esta Sala. Ojalá que sepan defender su independencia. 
El hashtag #TocarNiñasEsDelito funciona bien en Twitter, pero no en la racionalidad judicial. Siempre los jueces tendrán que decidir, viendo todas las circunstancias, si realmente es delito. El señor Escalante, si es culpable, tendrá el castigo que la ley demanda. La ley, no la calle o Casa Presidencial.  
Saludos,

Posdata: Van a acusarme que estoy defendiendo a pedófilos y a jueces corruptos. Son gajes del oficio. Alguien tiene que defender la racionalidad.

Pan para hoy. de Cristina López

 Cache   


Publicado en EL DIARIO DE HOY, 4 noviembre 2019


Hay un dicho común que se usa normalmente con el fin de describir situaciones en las que se sobre-estiman los beneficios del corto plazo por encima de los costos de largo plazo, y es el de: “pan para hoy y hambre para mañana”. Y aplica perfectamente para el reciente anuncio de la administración del presidente Bukele en conjunto con el gobierno estadounidense de que los inmigrantes salvadoreños que cuentan actualmente con la protección del TPS que les permite residir y trabajar en Estados Unidos de manera temporal, pueden seguir gozando de esa protección por más o menos un año más.
Por lo menos hubo transparencia en el reconocimiento que este respiro para la angustia e incertidumbre que acechaba a los salvadoreños bajo el TPS es producto de un “quid pro quo” con la administración gringa más anti-inmigrante que ha tenido los Estados Unidos en las últimas décadas. Estamos claros que la paz mental del presente tiene como precio la angustia del futuro, puesto que la administración de Trump continúa fija en su decisión de ponerle fin al programa del todo, sin intención alguna en establecer avenidas para convertir la protección temporal en residencia permanente.
Parte del canje fue el compromiso adquirido de apoyar la política anti-inmigrante de Trump, no sólo recibiendo a aquellos individuos en búsqueda de asilo que el gobierno de Estados Unidos se niega a acomodar, sino también ejecutando las tácticas de la temida fuerza fronteriza de la agencia federal para la protección de fronteras y aduanas, mejor conocida por sus siglas ICE. Los métodos y operaciones de ICE han sido criticados por violar los derechos humanos de inmigrantes detenidos, irrespetar los principios básicos del debido proceso, y abusar del uso de la fuerza en múltiples ocasiones. Se les critica sobre todo por hacer uso indiscriminado de la deportación, sobre todo cuando la dirigen en contra de inmigrantes sin récord alguno de criminalidad y con más apego al territorio estadounidense que a sus tierras de origen. Cabe preguntarse hasta qué punto aliarse con el gobierno de Trump para proteger a Estados Unidos de la inmigración indocumentada implicará hacer uso de la fuerza en contra de los propios compatriotas, el equivalente al pastor recibiendo entrenamiento por parte del lobo.
Y a pesar de todos los “peros” que pueden presentarse como críticas al altísimo precio que quizás muchos pagarán en el largo plazo por este respiro en el presente para unos pocos, el respiro es real. Beneficia de manera inmediata las vidas de salvadoreños trabajadores que hasta ahora, debido a la probada incompetencia de la administración de Sánchez Cerén y su aparente incapacidad de abogar por los nuestros en el plano internacional, solo habían contado con el apoyo de organizaciones sin fines de lucro. Este pan para hoy bien podrá ser hambre para mañana… pero no deja de ser pan en un momento crítico.
Ojalá exista una estrategia detrás de esta negociación desequilibrada que busque avenidas legales hacia la residencia permanente en los Estados Unidos para los compatriotas que se la han ganado a base de trabajo duro y contribuciones sociales a las comunidades de las que ya son parte en Estados Unidos. Ojalá que detrás del corto placismo, exista un compromiso serio de usar este respiro temporal para crear las condiciones en el país que dejen de obligar al desplazamiento y a la migración a tantos salvadoreños. Ojalá que el sentimiento anti-inmigrante que domina en Estados Unidos sea solamente producto de las fiebres políticas del presente. Por el momento, solo queda tener fe y usar este año de respiro para luchar por más.

Desinformación y linchamiento. De Erika Saldaña

 Cache   

Publicado en EL DIARIO DE HOY, 4 noviembre 2019

La semana pasada se abrió una polémica por una resolución emitida por la Cámara Primera de lo Penal, en la cual se declara incompetente para conocer del caso contra el magistrado Eduardo Escalante por considerar que los hechos se adecuan a una falta y no un delito. Sobre los actos que se le imputan al magistrado Escalante no voy a comentar nada, ya que hacerlo sin tener a la mano el expediente sería una opinión basada en percepción y no en los hechos que constan en las pruebas.
Sin embargo, algo que no quisiera pasar por alto es el linchamiento contra la Cámara. Varios medios de comunicación reportaron títulos que resultan aberrantes a cualquiera: “Tocarle genitales a niña en la calle no es delito” o “Cámara libera a magistrado y dice manoseo no es delito”. Eso resulta repugnante para quien lo lea y si semejante desfachatez es cierta, resulta sumamente condenable. Esta fue la llama que ha encendido a muchas personas. Pero una cosa es criticar una resolución de una Cámara teniendo a la vista su contenido y fundamentación jurídica, otra muy distinta es hacerlo con el dicho del abogado defensor del acusado.
Lo que una parte interesada dice siempre estará orientado a que su punto prevalezca. Esta vez, la información de la Cámara se ha vuelto viral con las palabras mal dichas del abogado defensor del acusado (que asustan a cualquiera), y no con las letras y puntos de los magistrados. No se trata de defensa de acusado o los magistrados de Cámara, es que la información que se brinda a los ciudadanos debe ser limpia, sin sesgos para que cada quien tenga la oportunidad de sacar sus propias conclusiones.
Si hay algo que está caracterizando a esta era es la desinformación. Ahora entramos a las redes sociales o a las noticias disponibles en internet y ya no sabemos qué es real y que es mentira. Y esto no siempre es producto de la mala intención, sino también de la imprecisión y poca rigurosidad con la que se redactan algunas notas.
Las cuestiones legales y judiciales son técnicas y tediosas. En esta era de la desinformación, los medios de comunicación tienen el reto de traducir estas situaciones técnicas a un lenguaje común y claro que las vuelva entendibles a cualquier persona. Es preferible una nota bien fundamentada, con todas las versiones posibles contrastadas y sin sesgos, a una nota rápida y hecha con el dicho de una parte totalmente interesada como un abogado defensor.
En los temas de violencia contra niñas, adolescentes y mujeres todas las instituciones deben poner las barbas en remojo con el tratamiento de los casos. Se necesita mayor sensibilización para todas las partes, el involucramiento de equipos multidisciplinarios sólidos que acompañen los procesos, reformas para superar errores o vacíos legales, pero también información clara y precisa, para que los hechos, las percepciones y las ideas preconcebidas no se mezclen en una situación tan delicada y complicada.
En esta República, lo que queremos es que niñas, adolescentes y mujeres vivan en un ambiente en el cual se nos trate con dignidad, respeto e igualdad. El Estado tiene especial deber de salvaguardar estos derechos considerando que históricamente las mujeres se han posicionado en situación de desventaja en todos los ámbitos de la vida frente a los hombres. Los casos de violencia contra las mujeres y sobre la posible comisión de delitos sexuales contra ellas deben ser tratados con muchísima atención. En un Estado de Derecho, el adecuado tratamiento del caso también incluye a los demás involucrados.
Volviendo al caso, esta situación es difícil para la menor afectada y su familia, así como para una sociedad cansada de la impunidad. Pero el debate debe fundamentarse en hechos, en puntos claros, en derecho, no en ideas preconcebidas o desinformación. Al final, lo que queremos es justicia no linchamientos mediáticos a jueces, acusados, defensores, fiscales o a las víctimas.

WAZIRI MKUU AWASHUKURU WALIOJITOKEZA KWENYE MAZISHI YA KAKA YAKE

 Cache   

WAZIRI MKUU Kassim Majaliwa amewashukuru watu wote waliojitokeza katika mazishi ya kaka yake Mzee Bakari Majaliwa (78), aliyefariki juzi (Jumatatu, Novemba 04, 2019) nyumbani kwake katika kijiji cha Chimbila ‘B’wilayani Ruangwa, Lindi.


Ametoa shukrani hizo leo (Jumatano, Novemba 06, 2019) wakati wa ibada ya mazishi iliyofanyika kijijini Nandagala wilayani Ruangwa na amesema kwamba hayo ni mapenzi ya Mwenyezi Mungu na kila mtu atapita kwenye njia hiyo.

“Tulikuwa 12 na sasa tumebaki watano, wanaume wawili na wanawake watatu. Msiba huu kwetu ni mkubwa umepunguza idadi ya watoto wa Mzee Majaliwa lakini hatuna namna ni mapenzi ya Mwenyezi Mungu, wajibu wetu ni kuendelea kumuombea. Nawashukuru wote mlioacha shughuli zenu na kutukimbilia, familia imethamini sana ujio wenu jambao hili limetokea ghafla.”

Waziri Mkuu pia amemshukuru Rais Dkt. John Magufuli kwa salamu za pole alizozitoa. “Jambo hili pia limemgusa Mheshimiwa Rais wetu ambaye ametutaka tuwe watulivu katika kipindi hiki kigumu na kwamba kila mmoja kwa dhehebu lake aendelee kumuombea marehemu ili Mwenyezi Mungu amlaze mahala pema.”

Amesema alipata taarifa za msiba huo wakati akijiandaa kwenda wilayani Ruangwa kwa ajili ya kushiriki mazishi yamwanasiasa mkongwe na Mwenyekiti wa zamani wa CCM wa Wilaya ya Ruangwa, Bw. Kaspar Selemani Mmuya.

Kwa upande wake, Mkuu wa Majeshi ya Ulinzi Tanzania, Generali, Venance Mabeyo akitoa salamu za pole kwa niaba ya Maafisa na Askari wa Vyombo vyote vya Ulinzi na Usalama amesema anajua uzito wa msiba pamoja na majonzi waliyonayo kwa kuondokewa na mpendwa wao na kwamba wamshukuru Mwenyezi Mungu kwa kuwa ndiye anayetoa na anayetwaa. “Hakuna namna ya kurekebisha maamuzi ya Mwenyezi Mungu, tuendelee kumsindikiza kaka yetu kwa sala Mwenyezi Mungu ampokee kwa amani.”

Naye, Mwakilishi wa Mufti na Sheikh Mkuu wa Tanzania, Sheikh Othman Kaporo amesema amewataka wananchi wajiandae na kifo kwa kufanya ibada. “Ni kawaida kwa binadamu kujisahau lakini Mwenyezi Mungu ametuwekea vitu vya kutukumbusha juu ya uwepo wake ikiwemo kifo, hivyo tuyatekeleze yale yalikuwa ya wajibu kuyatekeleza.”

TIGO INAVYOREJESHA TABASAMU KWA WAGONJWA WA MGUU KIFUNDO

 Cache   
Mkurugenzi mtendaji (Tigo) Bw. Simon Karikari akimkabidhi mfano wa hundi ya Mil 110/- Ofisa Mtendaji Mkuu wa CCBRT, Brenda Msangi.Hafla ya makabidhiano yalifanyika katika wakati wa mkutano na waandishi wa habari uliofanyika katika hospitali ya CCBRT
****

Siku zote ni furaha pale mwanamke anapopata mtoto ambaye alimtarajia kwa takribani miezi tisa ya ujauzito.Hii ilidhihirika kwa Salma Hajj (29) baada ya kujifungua salama mtoto wake wa kwanza wa kiume miezi kumi iliyopita.

Hatahivyo, furaha ya Salma haikudumu.Baada ya muda mfupi, Salma ambaye ni mkazi wa Buza jijini Dar es Salaam furaha yake ilitokweka baada ya kugundua kuwa mwanae wa huyo alikuwa na tatizo la miguu kujikunja pasipo kujua ni nini tatizo.

Tatizo hilo linajulikana kama ‘mguu kifundo’ au kwa kiingereza linafahamika kama ‘Clubfoot’ ambalo kisayansi linalotokea hata kabla ya mtoto kuzaliwa.

Kila mwaka zaidi ya watoto 100,000 duniani huzaliwa na ugonjwa huu ambao humfanya mtoto kushindwa kutembea kwa kutumia unyayo na badala yake hutumia kifundo cha mguu.

Kwa Tanzania,inakadiriwa kuwa karibuni watoto 2,800 wanazaliwa na ugonjwa huu kila mwaka.Kati yao asilimia 50 wana athirika mguu mmoja huku waliobaki wakiathirwa miguu yote miwili.

Asilimia 80 ya wagonjwa wasiopata matibabu yake wanapatikana kwenye nchi zinazoendelea, ikiwamo Tanzania.Kama ugonjwa huu usipotibika unaweza kusababisha maumivu makali wakati wa kutembea na hatimaye husababisha ulemavu wa muda mrefu.

“Kiukweli ulikuwa ni wakati mgumu sana kwangu.Nilijisikia vibaya kwamba mwanangu hataweza kutembea vizuri na hatahivyo sikujua anasumbuliwa na tatizo gani kwa kipindi kile,” anasema Salma.

“Nilihisi kama ilikuwa mwisho wa dunia kwangu na mwanangu; nilijiuliza maswali mengi bila majibu kwamba atawezaje kutembea? ataonekanaje kwa watu? atasoma katika shule gani? nilichanganyikiwa sana,” anasema Salma.

Mmoja wa mtoa huduma (nesi) alimjulisha kuwa tatizo hilo linaweza kutibika katika Hospitali ya CCBRT iliyoko Msasani jijini Dar es Salaam bila malipo.Kilichofuata ilikuwa ni kutembelea hospitalini hapo ambapo madaktari walianza kutoa matibabu kwa mtoto wake kwa miezi michache tu.

Kwa mujibu wa daktari wa mifupa (Orthopedic) wa CCBRT, Dk. Zainab Ilonga, anasema chanzo cha ugonjwa huo bado hakijulikani.

Anasema hadi sasa sababu yake bado haijathibitika lakini wanaamini kuwa moja ya sababu ni matumizi ya pombe na matumizi mabaya ya madawa wakati wa ujazuzito au urithi wa vinasaba (genetic) na kwamba tafiti zaidi zitasaidia kutambua chanzo halisi cha tatizo hilo.

“Kuna njia mbili za kutibu ugonjwa huu wa mguu kifundo;moja ni kutumia njia ya Ponseti ambayo haihitaji kufanya upasuaji na nyingine ya kufanya upasuaji,” Dk Ilonga anasema na kuongeza 

“Kwa Tanzania tunatibu watoto takribani 400 kwa mwaka sawa na asilimia 25 ya wagonjwa wote na hii inatokana na baadhi ya wazazi kuwanawaficha watoto wenye tatizo hili.”

Ignacio V. Ponseti ni njia ambayo imekuwa ikitumia kutibu mguu kifundo tangu miaka ya 1940.Moja ya kanuni ya njia hii ni kwamba tishu za mtoto ikiwamo tendoni, ligamenti na maungio yake yapo katika hatua ya ukuaji hivyo kufanya mguu kuungana baada ya kila wiki moja.

Kwa kutumia njia hii ndani ya wiki kadhaa hali ya mgonjwa inaweza kubadilika na kufanikisha kurekebisha mguu bila uhitaji wa kufanya upasuaji.

Mtoto wa Salma alipitia hatua hiyo maarufu kama ‘gentle bone manipulations’ na ufuatiliaji (castings) ili kujua mabadiliko ya kibaolojia hasa misuli yake, maungio na tishu kwa lengo la kutibu tatizo alilokuwa nalo. 

“Kuna wakati alikuwa anapitia wakati mgumu kwani alikuwa analia sana jambo lililonifanya na mimi kulia.Nilikuwa na wasiwasi juu ya maisha ya mwanangu siku za mbeleni,” anasema kwa huzuni.

“Nawashukuru sana Tigo na madaktari wa CCBRT kwa msaada wao mkubwa kwasababu saizi mtoto wangu ana miezi kumi na amepona kabisa,” anasema Salma huku akiwa na uso wa furaha.

Afisa wa Uwajibikaji kwa Jamii wa Tigo, Halima Okash anasema 

“Tuliona kuna umuhimu wa kusaidia wahitaji hawa kwa sababu CCBRT inahudumia jamii yenye uhitaji na wasiojiweza katika kuwasaidia kupata huduma za matibabu.Tumeunga mkono jitihada hizi zinazofanywa na CCBRT kuhakikisha watu wenye ulemavu wanapata nafasi ya kutibiwa kwa gharama ndogo au bure kabisa,” anasema Okash.

Kupitia huduma za upasuaji kutoka hospitali ya CCBRT jumla ya watoto 1,509 wamenufaika katika kipindi cha miaka sita iliyopita. 

“Haya ni mafanikio yanayotufanya sisi Tigo kujisikia faraja kwa kiasi kikubwa kwani kwa kutoa matibabu kwa watu wenye ulemavu,Tigo na CCBRT tunaleta matokeo chanya kwa maisha ya mtu mmoja mmoja, familia na jamii ya Tanzania kwa ujumla,” anasema Okash.

Tangu mwaka 2013, Tigo iliingia ubia na hospitali ya CCBRT kutoa matibabu kwa wagonjwa wa midomo sungura, kwa kutumia njia ya jumbe (SMS) zinazotumwa kwa wagonjwa wa CCBRT kuwakumumbusha kufuatilia matibabu na kutoa uelewa kuhusu huduma kwa umma.

Kupitia mpango huu, wagonjwa wanaweza kupata jumbe za matibabu kwa siku nne na siku moja kabla ya siku ya matibabu na hii imeisaidia CCBRT kupunguza idadi ya wagonjwa wanaokatisha matibabu.

Kwa msaada wa Sh110, 0000,000 kwa mwaka kutoka Tigo, CCBRT inaweza kutoa huduma za matibabu kwa njia Ponseti (bila upasuaji) kwa wagonjwa wapya zaidi ya 400 na wengine wanaoendelea na matibabu hospitalini hapo.

Na. Edward Kondela

Serikali imewataka wadau kwenye sekta ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa wanaoandaa mitaala kwa ajili ya vyuo kufundisha kozi fupi katika sekta hizo ngazi ya cheti na diploma kupitisha mitaala bora itakayohakikisha wanafunzi watakaohitimu mafunzo wanaleta matokeo chanya katika sekta hizo kwa wananchi na taifa kwa ujumla.

Akizungumza Jijini Dodoma wakati akifungua kikao kilichowahusisha wadau katika sekta za ngozi, nyama na maziwa kutoka serikalini na taasisi binafsi Katibu Mkuu Wizara ya Mifugo na Uvuvi anayeshughulikia Mifugo Prof. Elisante Ole Gabriel amesema ili kupata malighafi bora zinazotokana na sekta ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa ni lazima wataalam ambao wamesomea sekta hizo ngazi ya cheti na diploma wawekewe mazingira ya kuhakikisha wanatumia utaalam watakaoupata kupitia vyuo mbalimbali baada ya kupitishwa kwa mitaala hiyo ili iwe na tija kwa taifa.

“Mitaala mnayokwenda kupitia na kuzungumzia lazima ijibu mahitaji ya wadau katika sekta tatu yaani ngozi, nyama na maziwa isiwe kuwa na cheti baada ya kuhitimu mafunzo ngazi ya cheti au diploma hawa wataalamu wa ngazi ya kati ndiyo wanaotegemewa kwenda kufanya kazi za vitendo, hakikisheni mnapata mitaala ambayo itakuwa na manufaa.” Amesema Prof. Gabriel

Aidha Prof. Gabriel amewataka wadau hao kubainisha njia bora za kufundishia mara baada ya kupitishwa kwa mitaala hiyo ili kuhakikisha wanafunzi watakaodahiliwa wanaelewa vizuri pamoja na kuwa na utaratibu mzuri wa kuwapata watu ambao wanafundishika na wawe tayari kupokea mafunzo hayo.

Akibainisha juu ya jamii kuwa na ufugaji wenye tija, katibu mkuu huyo amewaasa wadau wa mifugo wajenge utamaduni wa kuwatumia wataalam hususan wa ngazi ya kati ili waweze kufuga kisasa na kunufaika kupitia mifugo yao badala ya kufuga kwa mazoea na hatimaye kupata hasara.

Kwa upande wake Mkurugenzi wa Utafiti, Ugani na Mafunzo kutoka Wizara ya Mifugo na Uvuvi Dkt. Angello Mwilawa amesema mjadala wa kuandaa mitaala kwa ajili ya kufundisha vyuoni kozi fupi katika ngazi ya cheti na diploma kwenye kwenye sekta ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa umetoka kwa wadau, hivyo wizara ikashirikisha taasisi mbalimbali likiwemo Baraza la Taifa la Elimu ya Ufundi (NACTE) ili kukamilisha mitaala hiyo.

Dkt. Mwilawa amefafanua kuwa mara baada ya kukamilika kwa taratibu za kuandaa mitaala hiyo vyuo vya serikali kwa kushirikiana na binafsi vitaanza kutekeleza kwa kutoa mafunzo ya tasnia ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa katika ngazi ya cheti na diploma.

Akielezea umuhimu wa serikali kupitia Wizara ya Mifugo na Uvuvi kuandaa mitaala hiyo, Katibu wa Chama cha Wafugaji Tanzania Bw. Magembe Makoye ameipongeza Wizara ya Mifugo na Uvuvi kwa kuhakikisha sekta ya mifugo inasimamiwa vyema kupitia mambo ya kisera na kisheria ambayo ndiyo yamekuwa yakisimamia pamoja na kutunga kanuni mpya zenye lengo la kuhakikisha sekta ya mifugo inathaminiwa zaidi.

Bw. Makoye amesema sekta ya mifugo ambayo inaajiri watu wengi kote nchini kupitia mafunzo yatakayoanza kutolewa vyuoni mara baada ya kupitishwa kwa mitaala hiyo kutachangia kwa kiasi kikubwa kuongeza thamani ya sekta ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa kwa kuwa wafugaji sasa wataongezewa taarifa na maarifa kupitia kwa wataalamu watakaohitimu mafunzo hayo.

Wizara ya Mifugo na Uvuvi kwa kushirikiana na wadau wa sekta ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa pamoja na taasisi mbalimbali likiwemo Baraza la Taifa la Elimu ya Ufundi (NACTE) inapitia mitaala kwa ajili ya kuanzishwa kwa kozi fupi ngazi ya cheti na diploma katika sekta hizo kwenye vyuo vya serikali na binafsi ili kuyaongezea thamani zaidi mazao ya ngozi, nyama na maziwa kwa kuwa na waatalamu wengi zaidi ngazi ya kati walipobobea katika sekta za ngozi, nyama na maziwa.



          

SERIKALI YAPIGA MARUFUKU WALENGWA WA TASAF KULAZIMISHWA KUCHANGIA BIMA ZA AFYA NA MICHANGO YA KIJAMII

 Cache   
Na. Aaron Mrikaria-Dodoma
Serikali imewaagiza Viongozi wa Vijiji kutowalazimisha walengwa wa Mpango wa Kunusuru Kaya Maskini kukatwa ruzuku kwa ajili ya kuchangia bima za afya na michango mbalimbali ya kijamii kwani ruzuku hiyo hutolewa na Serikali kwa ajili ya kuziwezesha kaya maskini kujikwamua kiuchumi.


Agizo hilo limetolewa Bungeni leo na Naibu Waziri, Ofisi ya Rais, Menejimenti ya Utumishi wa Umma na Utawala Bora, Mhe. Dkt. Mary Mwanjelwa (Mb) kwa niaba ya Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Rais, Menejimenti ya Utumishi wa Umma, Kapt.

(Mst) Mhe. George H. Mkuchika (Mb), wakati akijibu swali la Mbunge wa Bahi, Mhe. Omary Ahmed Badwel aliyetaka kujua Utekelezaji wa Mpango wa Kunusuru Kaya Maskini katika vijiji vyote nchini.

Mhe. Dkt. Mwanjelwa amesema, ruzuku inayotolewa na Serikali kwa walengwa ni kwa ajili ya kuwawezesha kupata mahitaji ya msingi kama vile chakula, gharama za elimu na Afya na kuwekeza katika kuanzisha miradi itakayowaongezea kipato na hatimaye kujikwamua na umaskini, hivyo ni maamuzi ya kaya husika kupanga matumizi ya ruzuku wanayoipata.

“Katika baadhi ya maeneo, Viongozi wa Vijiji wamekuwa wakiwalazimisha walengwa kukatwa ruzuku ili kulipia bima za afya na michango mbalimbali jambo ambalo si sahihi na halikubaliki”, Mhe. Dkt. Mwanjelwa amefafanua.

Aidha, Dkt. Mwanjelwa ameelekeza walengwa kutokatwa ruzuku moja kwa moja bila ridhaa yao bali wapewe stahiki zao na kama kuna michango ya shughuli za maendeleo ya kijiji inapaswa kutozwa kwa wananchi wote wa kijiji husika.

Dkt. Mwanjelwa amewataka viongozi wote waliokuwa wanatoa amri ya kukatwa kwa ruzuku za walengwa wa TASAF moja kwa moja bila ridhaa yao, waache mara moja kwani ni kinyume cha utaratibu na iwapo wataendelea, Serikali itawachukulia hatua za kali za kinidhamu na kisheria.

Mpango wa Kunusuru Kaya Maskini tangu uanze kutekelezwa na Serikali mwaka 2013 umezinufaisha kaya maskini kwa asilimia 70, na hivi sasa Serikali inajiandaa kuanza utekelezaji wa Awamu ya Tatu sehemu ya pili mwishoni mwa mwaka huu baada ya Serikali kupata fedha lengo likiwa ni kuzifikia kaya zote maskini nchini



          

SERIKALI YASEMA HAITAINGILIA KUPANGA BEI MSIMU UJAO WA PAMBA

 Cache   

Naibu Waziri wa Kilimo, Hussein Bashe amesema kuelekea msimu ujao wa pamba serikali itajitahidi kupunguza gharama na kwamba haitaingilia kupanga bei bali watatafuta njia nyingine za kumlinda mkulima na kuhakikisha hapati hasara.

Ametoa kauli hiyo bungeni leo Jumatano Novemba 6, alipokuwa akijibu swali la nyongeza la Mbunge wa Busega (CCM), Dk. Raphael Chegeni aliyetaka kupata tamko la serikali kuhusu wakulima wa pamba ambao waliuza pamba tangu Mei mwaka huu lakini hawajalipwa fedha zao.

“Wakulima wa pamba ambao mwaka hadi mwaka wamekuwa wakifanya kazi ya kulima wamekuwa wakipata hasara kwa mfano leo hii wakulima wa Mkoa wa Simiyu hasa wa Wilaya ya Busega wameuza pamba tangu mwezi Mei mpaka leo hawajaliwa fedha zao sasa hauoni kwamba hii ni kuwakatisha tamaa wakulima wasiweze kufanya kilimo kizuri zaidi na nini tamkola serikali juu ya hili,” amehoji.

“Ninakiri kuwa baadhi ya wakulima wa pamba hawajalipwa fedha zao, kwa mwaka huu mpaka sasa hivi jumla ya bilioni 417 zimeshalipwa kwa wakulima wa nchi nzima, ambao hawajalipwa wanadai bilioni 50 kufikia sasa hivi na sababu ya msingi ni lazima tufahamu kwamba asilimia zaidi ya 80 ya pamba inakwenda nje ya nchi, wanunuzi wetu wanakabiliwa na mtikisiko wa bei ambao umewakabili katika soko la dunia na sisi kama nchi tulitoa maelekezo ya bei ya kununulia na haya yalikuwa maamuzi ya serikali kwaajili ya kumlinda mkulima asipate hasara.

“Pamba yote iliyokuwa kwa wakulima imeshakusanywa sasa hivi kilichobaki mikononi mwa wakulima ni tani 5,000 tu ambayo tunaamini msimu unapoanza pamba yote ya wakulima itakuwa imeondoka, tunajitahidi kupunguza gharama msimu huu unaokuja na hatutaingilia kupanga bei, jukumu letu litakuwa ni kuhakikisha mkulima hapati hasara kwa kutafuta njia nyingine za kumlinda kuliko kumuathiri mnunuzi,” amesema Bashe.



          

WAZIRI WA NISHATI ATOA ONYO KWA MAMENEJA NA WAKANDARASI WANAOTOZA WANANCHI GHARAMA YA NGUZO ZA UMEME

 Cache   

Waziri wa Nishati, Medard Kalemani ametoa onyo kwa mameneja na wakandarasi wanaotoza nguzo za umeme wananchi na kuwataka waachane na tabia hiyo mara moja kwakua serikali imegharimia nguzo hizo kwa asilimia 100.

Waziri Kalemani ametoa kauli hiyo bungeni leo Jumatano Novemba 6, katika kipindi cha maswali na majibu alipokuwa akijibu swali la nyongeza la Mbunge wa Viti Maalum (CCM), Halima Bulembo aliyetaka kujua serikali inazungumzia vipi kadhia ya kulipishwa nguzo za umeme ambayo wananchi wa Mkoa wa Kagera wamekuwa wakikumbana nayo

Akijibu hoja hiyo Waziri Kalemani amesema serikali haitaendeleakufumbia macho suala hilo na kwamba yeyote atakaekamatwa atachukuliwa hatua za kisheria bila kujali cheo chake.

“Yapo maeneo bado wakandarasi na mameneja wa Tanesco wanaendelea kutoza nguzo wateja, ninaomba nitoe tamko kali sana kwamba ni marufuku kutoza nguzo kwa wateja wote, awe mkandarasi, Meneja wa Tanesco au kibarua na hii ni kwasababu serikali imegharamia kwa asilimia 100,” amesema Dk. Kalemani.

Aidha amesema serikali imekuwa ikipeleka umeme katika maeneo yote hasa vijijini lakini baadhi ya taasisi zimekuwa hazilipiwi na hivyo amewataka wamiliki wa taasisi hizo kuhakikisha wanalipa kiasi cha Sh 27,000 ili taasisi zote zipelekewe umeme.

SERIKALI YABAINISHA MKAKATI WA KUDHIBITI MARADHI YANAYOIKUMBA MIMEA YA MIPAPAI

 Cache   
Na Mathias Canal, Wizara ya Kilimo-Dodoma

Serikali kupitia Wizara ya Kilimo imefanya utafiti na kugundua kuwa ugonjwa wa Ubwili unga ndio unaoathiri mipapai kwa kiwango kikubwa.

Baada ya kugundulika ugonjwa huo, Wizara ya kilimo imechukua hatua za kuudhibiti kwa kutumia viuatilifu vyenye viambata vya croripynfos (udhibiti wa kwenye udongo), Profenophos na Dichlorovosch (udhibiti kwenye majani).

Aidha, njia nyingine ya uthibiti ni kwa kutumia mbinu bora za kilimo (Cultural Control) kwa kupanda miche wakati wa kiangazi ili mimea isishambuliwe ikiwa michanga, kupalilia shamba kwa wakati na kug’olea miche iliyoathirika na utumiaji wa wadudu marafiki (Biological Control).

Naibu Waziri wa Kilimo Mhe Omary Mgumba ameyasema hayo jana tarehe 5 Novemba 2019  bungeni Jijini Dodoma Wakati akijibu swali la Mheshimiwa Mbunge wa Viti Maalum Zainabu Mussa Bakari aliyetaka kufahamu serikali imechukua hatua gani kudhibiti maradhi katika mimea ya mipapai nchini ambayo yanahatarisha kupotea kwa mimea hiyo.

Amesema kuwa Serikali inaendelea kutoa elimu kwa wakulima kuhusu kufuata kanuni bora za kilimo ili kuepuka magonjwa mbalimbali yanayoweza kuathiri mimea ukiwemo mpapai.

Serikali kupitia Kituo cha Utafiti cha TARI-Horti TENGERU imeendelea kufanya utafiti magonjwa na wadudu wanaoathiri mazao ya bustani ikiwemo mipapai. Utafiti huo umegundua kuwa ugonjwa wa Ubwili unga unaoathiri mipapai unaosababishwa na vimelea vya kuvu (fungus) vijulikanavyo kitaalam kama Oidium caricae papaya.

Ameongeza kuwa Mipapai haiwezi kupotea nchini kwa kuwa tayari njia za kudhibiti      magonjwa na wadudu wanaoshambulia mimea hiyo zipo.

kadhalika, Wizara itaendelea kuwaelimisha wakulima na wadau mbalimbali juu ya udhibiti wa ugonjwa na wadudu wanashambulia mimea na mazao ikiwemo mipapai ili kuongeza uzaliahaji na tija.

Тыква

рецепты


Ленивые вареники, мясо в соусе, суп-пюре, булочки, десерт. Яркими красками осени прогоняем хандру!

Ленивые вареники с картошкой и тыквой - яркие и мягкие, поскольку тесто для них готовится с добавлением картофельного и тыквенного пюре. Подаются с обжаренными грибами. Такие ленивые вареники станут не только сытным блюдом на столе, но и украшением вашего обеда.

Свинина в тыквенном соусе получается очень вкусной и ароматной. Мясо при тушении пропитывается соусом, в результате чего ему передаётся приятное сочетание кисло-сладкого вкуса тыквы и томата с чесноком и специями. Подаётся свинина с любым гарниром, например с макаронами.

Тыква, тушенная с яблоками, изюмом и корицей - лёгкий в приготовлении и восхитительный по вкусу десерт из небольшого количества компонентов, который наверняка придётся по вкусу всем любителям тыквы.

Тыквенно-шоколадные булочки - интересная выпечка из дрожжевого теста. Это булочки с сюрпризом - в яркой тыквенной оболочке прячется шоколадный колобок.

Тыквенный суп-пюре - постное первое блюдо, которое готовится очень просто, а получается вкусным, нежным и лёгким. Подавать суп-пюре можно с тыквенными семечками и кунжутом.

Ещё больше интересных рецептов смотрите в нашей рубрике Блюда из тыквы. А также обязательно загляните в нашу предыдущую подборку "Время ТЫКВЫ (5)". Продолжение следует.

A Life in Four Colors Part Forty-Eight

 Cache   
1969 was the year when I began to stumble across the path to my future.

First off, I really felt like I had found my place with friends who truly understood me. I had a close friend who shared most of my interests (Gary Steele), I had a new friend who also shared most of my interests and who had the advantage of being a beautiful girl (Susan)... and I took advantage of an opportunity that would turn out to lead me to my first career.

Berry College, located just a few miles from my house, had a Summer Enrichment Program that allowed invited high school sophomores to take college courses during the summer between their sophomore and junior years. Somehow, for reasons I never understood, I got one of those invitations.

And I almost turned it down.

It wasn't like I really had anything else on my schedule for the summer of 1969. But like pretty much every teenager, I was looking forward to sleeping late and goofing off for most of June, July, and August. My parents told me that they thought I should consider it, though, since it was an honor to get the invitation. My parents were never pushy or manipulative in any way. That's probably why I took their advice--their reasoning was sound (I could get high school credit for the course I took, and it might make a good impression on someone at Berry) and it was only a couple of classes.

So I accepted the invitation and signed up for the program. And I began what became a college tradition for me: I looked at the schedule of classes I could take and searched out the two earliest classes.

Like I said, I looked forward to sleeping late and goofing off--but I put a higher priority on "goofing off" than on "sleeping late," and I realized that if I could take an 8am and 9am class, I could finish up by 10am, get home by 10:20, and still have the entire day to do what I wanted. Heck, if I hadn't taken the class, I probably wouldn't have gotten up much earlier than 10am anyway, so I really wasn't losing any time at all!

Turned out that I enjoyed the classes, and I liked Berry College. It also turned out that they liked me, I guess, because at the end of my junior year they offered me a chance to take another class in the summer of 1970--and even better, they offered me an academic scholarship contingent on me maintaining my GPA and doing well in my summer 1970 class.

None of that had been in my mind when I took advantage  of the Summer Enrichment Program in the summer of 1969. Had I not participated in that program, however, I probably would have never gotten that scholarship offer, which means that I probably would have never gone to Berry College, which means that I wouldn't have been able to marry Susan a week after my high school graduation because it wouldn't have been financially feasible, which means that I wouldn't have crossed paths with the college professors who guided and inspired me to sign up for the teaching program at Berry, which means that I wouldn't have become an English teacher, which means that  Susan wouldn't have been able to go to Coosa Valley Tech as soon as I began teaching, which means that she wouldn't have gotten the software design certification that got her the job with Management Science America in Atlanta, which means we wouldn't have moved to Marietta, which means that I never would have gone to Dr. No's when Artie Decker owned the shop, which means hat he would have never offered me a job ordering comics for his store, which means that he would have never sold me the store in 1982...

It's amazing how much my life was changed by two little decisions: first, that fateful call to one Susan Hendrix of Cedartown, Georgia, in response to her letter of comment in an issue of Batman; second, my taking advantage of an invitation to take college courses at Berry in the summer of 1969. Put those two things together, and the doors to all the good things in my life were opened for me.

(This also began a lifelong habit of scheduling things in the morning, by the way. Medical appointments, financial appointments, pest control visits, home repairs--whatever it is, I try to schedule it as early as possible. I still value my goofing off time, and I love the feeling of getting those obligations and duties out of the way as soon as possible.)

Kaitlynn Carter Writes Honest Article About Relationship With Miley Cyrus

 Cache   
“Until that trip, it had never crossed my mind that I was even capable of loving a woman the way I loved her.”


━ In this article, Kaitlynn reflects on her romantic history and responds to the public regarding her sexuality.

━ Begins by mentioning Mark Ronson momentarily labeling himself as sapiosexual and says she relates to his sentiment.

Mentions falling in love with a "much older man" when she was just 22. Her family didn't get it, but she recalls, "there was a chemistry that drew me to him as if I had no say in the matter."

━ Got married to Brody Jenner at 25, but she began to travel without him while it became evident they grew apart.


“Shortly thereafter, as my friend and I spent that August traveling through Europe together and trying to move past our respective break-ups, my first and only romance with a woman was born.”



━ With Miley, Kaitlynn was reminded of that same force of nature that allowed her to fall in love with that older man.

They had been friends for 3 years, and looking back, she realizes that she's always been drawn to Miley in a way she wasn't with any of her other friends.

━ To Kaitlynn, it was "so much more" than the way the media labeled it as a summer fling or same-sex affair.

━ She is "eternally grateful" for the short-lived relationship for opening her eyes to that unexplored part of herself.

━ On her sexuality (which the media has aggressively questioned since this summer): "I still don’t feel like I’m in a place to label my sexuality one way or another, but I’m okay with that. It’s something I’m still exploring and figuring out."

━ Miley Cyrus has since unfollowed Kaitlynn Carter (as well as Liam Hemsworth), and Kaitlynn unfollowed her back about a day or so after.

_La condena de la violencia se ha convertido en un arma política a emplear contra los adversarios. Da igual que el presidente de la Generalidad  haya desautorizado públicamente los actos violentos que están ocurriendo en Cataluña. Yo he escuchado al señor Torra condenar dicha violencia en varias ocasiones.

 

Pero por lo visto no es suficiente. Cada día sale alguien del gobierno o de la oposición reclamando que vuelva a condenar la violencia.

 

Lo cierto es que el cinismo y la hipocresía de los que se pasan todo el día reclamando que los independentistas catalanes  condenen  la violencia callejera no tiene límites. Saben que el movimiento independentista catalán  ha sido pacífico hasta ahora pero quieren desacreditarlo tachándolo de violento.

 

 

El cinismo de Pedro Sánchez Castejón y su gobierno y también de Casado, Rivera y compañía se descubre rápidamente.

 

Todos ellos apoyan a los López, Guaidó, Machado,… responsables de las guarimbas (1) en Venezuela que han ocasionado la muerte  de varias decenas de policías  y chavistas en los últimos años. Al menos en Cataluña, esperemos que siga así, no ha muerto nadie todavía.

 

Estos hipócritas tampoco se preocupan mucho de la violencia si esta se ejerce contra los que ellos consideran sus enemigos. No han hablado ni hablan nunca ni una palabra de la tortura en España (el ministro-juez Marlasca sabe perfectamente de lo que hablo ya que, gracias a su inhibición al no investigar casos de tortura, el Estado Español ha sido condenado por el Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos en numerosas ocasiones).

 

 

Y mucho menos hablan del Batallón Vasco Español ni del GAL, estructuras policiales creadas por el PP y por el PSOE (porque entonces no existían ni C´s ni Vox) que no se limitaban a hacer fuegos en las calles ni tirar piedras sino que se dedicaban asesinar.

 

 

Para estos cínicos la violencia de unos particulares, aunque no sea letal, es condenable. El terrorismo de Estado, aunque asesine a mansalva no merece condena. Por eso no piden el encarcelamiento de Felipe González, el señor X de los GAL.

 

 

Yo condeno la hipocresía y el cinismo de toda esta gente, en especial de la mayoría de  los periodistas, incluyendo a los  que  se las dan de “progres” como la pareja Ferreras-Pastor, que hacen exactamente lo mismo: condenan unas violencias y se callan otras. El doble rasero es propio de mercenarios o es basura intelectual. O las dos cosas.

Opinión. Iglesia y democra cia (Respuesta a Pérez Royo). Por Juan Segura

“La Iglesia Española no ha sido para la Constitución del 78 lo que fue para la Constitución protodemocrática de 1869 o para la Constitución democrática de 1931. La radical incompatibilidad ...

_“La Iglesia Española no ha sido para la Constitución del 78 lo que fue para la Constitución protodemocrática de 1869 o para la Constitución democrática de 1931. La radical incompatibilidad de la Iglesia con la democracia que se dio en nuestra historia anterior no se ha producido con la Constitución de 1978. Pero eso no quiere decir que se haya producido una adhesión clara e inequívoca a la democracia. La Iglesia católica no es un problema de la democracia española, pero el lugar que debería ocupar la Iglesia en la democracia española sigue siendo una asignatura pendiente.”

 

Javier Pérez Royo

 

Con motivo de la exhumación de los restos del dictador, el profesor Javier Pérez Royo, ha escrito un artículo criticando la postura del prior, analizando la posición de la Iglesia Católica con respecto al fascismo franquista y denunciando el “nacionalcatolicismo” y la “cruzada”.

 

 

El último párrafo, reseñado más arriba, sorpresivamente, introduce una serie de contradicciones  dignas de ser remarcadas. Particularmente las dos líneas con la que termina: “La Iglesia católica no es un problema de la democracia española, pero el lugar que debería ocupar la Iglesia en la democracia española sigue siendo una asignatura pendiente”.

 

Estimado señor Pérez Royo:  si el lugar que debiera ocupar la Iglesia Católica sigue siendo una asignatura pendiente queda meridianamente claro que ello constituye un problema para la democracia española.

 

Un problema que tiene implicaciones en casi todos los campos de nuestra vida político-social: por ejemplo en  la estructura educativa de nuestro país.

 

Por ejemplo, en las finanzas de nuestro país: la Iglesia Católica recibe casi 11.000 millones de euros ( 1% del PIB) del Estado, según datos de Europa Laica.  

 

Dice usted que: “La radical incompatibilidad de la Iglesia con la democracia que se dio en nuestra historia anterior no se ha producido con la Constitución de 1978”.

 

Usted mismo, en su artículo, señala varios episodios de la actitud antidemocrática de la Iglesia Católica en la España actual . Y es de sobra conocido  el carácter intolerante y antidemocrático de la Iglesia Católica en diversos órdenes de la vida hacia su interior y hacia el exterior como corresponde a una organización basada en el “dogma” y en la posesión de la verdad absoluta.

 

Si la Iglesia Católica no se ha mostrado más beligerante con el régimen del 78 se debe a que consiguió todo lo que quiso. No porque ahora tenga más sensibilidad democrática. Hablo de la Iglesia Católica como institución. No pongo en duda que algunos católicos sean sinceramente demócratas pero estos últimos tienen que andar a la greña, necesariamente, con la jerarquía eclesial.

 

Si uno no quiere, dos no se pelean”, dice el refrán. El régimen del 78 dio a la Iglesia Católica cuanto ésta le pidió, siguiendo la estela del dictador Francisco Franco. Al fin y al cabo seis de los siete “padres” de la Constitución del 78 eran católicos (Gabriel Cisneros, Fraga, Herrero de Miñón, Pérez Llorca, Roca y Peces Barba).

 

 

Nada que ver con la Constitución Republicana de 1931 que “consagró” el laicismo y, por tanto,  la radical separación entre cualquier organización religiosa y el Estado y manifestó su voluntad de no dar ni una peseta a ninguna Iglesia. (Ver artículo 26 de la Constitución Española de 1931).

 

 

Si tendrá fuerza la ideología católica que hasta este profesor, Javier Pérez Royo, comete estos lapsus. Sí, señor Pérez Royo, la Iglesia Católica sigue siendo un problema y lo será en tanto no cambie porque su  ideología es fundamentalmente antidemocrática.

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

LA VERDADERA RUPTURA

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

_El “Sr Alcaide”, Juan Manuel Rodríguez, inauguró el nuevo ¡¡HOSPITAL COMARCAL DE MORÓN !!..,  perdón, ha inaugurado un supermercado de la cadena Family Cash, con el cual, ha colaborado el Ayuntamiento para ponerlo más bonito y eso.

 


Según las declaraciones que hacen los dueños, se han subrogado a toda la plantilla, que eran 35 trabajadores y han pasado a 70, ojalá tengan todos un sueldo digno y les respeten todos sus derechos laborales.

 

 

No obstante, quería recordarle al “Sr Alcaide”, que el pequeño comercio en Morón está muriendo, solo hay que dar una vuelta por el pueblo y se ve la cantidad de comercios que hay cerrados. A éstos, que son los que tienen que hacer virguerías para poder seguir adelante con su negocio, son a los que habría que ayudar, antes que a grandes empresas, con rebajas de impuestos, etc..

 

Sin embargo, a este equipo de gobierno, lo que le gusta es ayudar a los grandes empresarios. José Canet, uno de los dueños, explicó que son unas tiendas que han adquirido  la cadena Erosky, que las van a “EXPLOTAR” a través de  cadena Family Cash”. Canet deja claro a qué viene a Morón.

Miguel López, secretario general de COAG: “Está en peligro el olivar tradicional, centenario y sostenible”

Miguel López, secretario general de COAG Andalucía, afirma que la crisis del olivar, motivada por especuladores, es un problema de Estado y se deben tomar medidas de manera urgente....

Miguel López, secretario general de COAG Andalucía, afirma que la crisis del olivar, motivada por especuladores, es un problema de Estado y se deben tomar medidas de manera urgente.

 

La Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Agricultores y Ganaderos –COAG- Andalucía ha ofrecido hoy una rueda de prensa para poner de manifiesto los motivos por los que el próximo 10 de octubre esta organización agraria va a acudir a Madrid, a las puertas del Ministerio de Agricultura, para reclamar medidas urgentes que impidan el desmantelamiento y desaparición de un sector socioeconómicamente clave en Andalucía como es el del aceite de oliva.

 

1,56 millones de hectáreas (distribuidas en un 94% almazara y 6% aceituna de mesa), 200.000 familias olivareras, más de 18,7 millones de jornales, son algunos de los datos del sector del olivar en Andalucía. “Y este modelo productivo del aceite de oliva, centenario y sostenible, que genera riqueza y fija población, está en peligro”, asegura Miguel López, secretario general de COAG Andalucía, quien ha comenzado la comparecencia ante los medios, acompañado de Juan Luis Ávila, secretario general de COAG Jaén y responsable de Olivar de COAG, y de Ramón García, secretario general de COAG Sevilla, diciendo que “no estamos pidiendo dinero, sino que se aplique la ley, que haya un precio justo, que se evite la especulación y el expolio que está ejecutando la industria a los productores de aceite de oliva”.

 

 

López ha destacado que se trata de un sector con suma importancia para el ámbito rural y desde la perspectiva cambio climático, porque es sostenible (la mayor parte es olivar de secano). “¿Por qué, entonces, estamos así? Porque hay desidia, porque consumidores y productores estamos olvidados por parte de la política agraria, porque hay mecanismos para ordenar los mercados que no se adoptan, como es el caso del almacenamiento privado, porque la Unión Europea está pasando del asunto y porque están pasando nuestras instituciones”.

 

En este sentido, explica que “el Ministerio ya debería estar planteando a Bruselas, que estamos en el momento adecuado, porque estamos abordando ya una próxima reforma de la PAC, que la Comisión, plantee al Consejo introducir en el reglamento una adaptación de los umbrales de precios, porque a 1,77€/kg  no se puede producir virgen extra. Es importante tener en cuenta, como productores y también como consumidores, que si nosotros no conseguimos los precios, que en estos momentos están en torno a los dos euros, significa que no podemos hacer calidad y mantener la seguridad alimentaria”.

 

El secretario general de COAG Andalucía ha explicado además que el aceite es el eje de la dieta mediterránea, “y si rompemos este eje, estamos actuando contra la salud pública. Deberíamos estar haciendo todo el virgen extra que pudiéramos, pero para ello tiene que llegar valor añadido al campo, porque cómo se va a invertir si no hay ni para pagar. Sólo este año se van a llevar entre la industria y la distribución 1.780 millones de euros que son de los productores. No estamos hablando de subvenciones, sino de que nos tienen que pagar por lo que vale lo nuestro. Con estos 1.780 millones de euros los agricultores podrían invertir y mejorar todas sus instalaciones de transformación y manejo del cultivo, ir hacia un aceite de mejor calidad y por tanto hacia una mejor salud pública”.

 

López ha señalado, asimismo, que la industria se está aprovechando del prestigio, de la calidad, del reconocimiento de un modelo centenario de producción, mientras que se están produciendo importaciones de aceites que se traen de Siria, de Turquía, del Magreb: “aceites sin control en el procedimiento, aceites de muy baja calidad, que después se pasan por un proceso industrial, se refinan y se mezclan con los nuestros, porque lo permite una figura establecida que es el Tráfico de Perfeccionamiento Activo, que debería estar prohibida en una situación de crisis de precios en Europa como tenemos en estos momentos. Esto se está permitiendo y, en su mayor medida, estos aceites se quedan aquí, en vez de exportarlos”.

 

 

“La industria se está aprovechando de estas circunstancias para hacer mucho dinero –ha incidido-, deteriorando la calidad, la seguridad alimentaria, la pureza de nuestros productos, el beneficio saludable de los mismos… Esto es inaceptable”.

 

Para Miguel López, “esto se debe convertir, porque de hecho lo es, en un problema de Estado. Esto tiene que coger el señor Sánchez y tirarle un tirón de la chaqueta al ministro de Agricultura que está de vacaciones desde que llegó. Y lo tiene que poner a trabajar, ya que se conoce tan bien el ámbito comunitario, para que esto se modifique, para que haya una propuesta de la Comisión al Consejo de Ministros y al Parlamento, que eleve el Reglamento que debe subir los umbrales, que se pongan en marcha mecanismos como el almacenamiento privado, que se utiliza para mermar esas posiciones de fuerza por parte de la industria, porque el sector está indefenso”.

 

También ha citado a la Comisión de la Competencia: “que se ponga a trabajar, porque aquí hay un movimiento de especulación”, y que se ponga a trabajar Hacienda: “vamos a mirar todos los tipos de aceites vegetales que hay, lo que se compra, lo que se importa, lo que se transforma… Y vamos a poner control ya, de una vez por todas. Eliminemos esta especulación, porque se están cargando la gallina de los huevos de oro, al menos para Andalucía. Lo que funciona bien no nos lo podemos cargar”.

 

Según el responsable de COAG Andalucía, esto ocurre porque hay quienes están en una posición “de saqueo”, mientras que la organización agraria pide trazabilidad, “porque hay que garantizar esa calidad y esa seguridad alimentaria, por lo tanto que se identifique el origen, dónde se produce, qué categorías llevan, qué controles, y en esto se tiene que meter la Junta de Andalucía también, que está cruzadita de brazos, que cojan el toro por los cuernos y que saquen los temas adelante”.

 

Y, si esto no llega, “nos machacan”, ha comentado López. “Hay que pedir que se ponga en marcha un plan de control, de sanciones, porque el epicentro de la especulación del aceite de oliva en estos momentos está básicamente en Andalucía, y si me apuráis en La Mancha. Significa que tenemos en nuestro país operando a los mayores mafiosos que ha habido en este sector. Aquí hay media Italia también operando. No lo hacen allí, porque las normas no se lo permiten. O nos movemos con rapidez, o lo vamos a pasar mal”.

 

 

Por último, Miguel López ha hecho una petición pública de apoyo a la manifestación de Madrid, que saldrá de la Puerta de Alcalá hasta el Ministerio de Agricultura. “Esperemos que se nos reciba –ha dicho- y se esté dispuesto a gestionar. La responsabilidad de gobierno se tiene aunque se esté en funciones. Este tema hay que llevarlo al Consejo y le corresponde a Pedro Sánchez. Que se le meta mano ya, que están desvalijando un sistema productivo del que dependen miles de familias”.

 

Objetivos de la manifestación

 

  • Activar el almacenamiento privado y actualizar los umbrales de referencia.
  • Controlar a través del Ministerio de Hacienda el tránsito del aceite importado, las producciones internas y asegurar el origen, calidad y trazabilidad de los aceites nacionales.
  • Reformar la normativa del aceite de oliva, obligando a identificar en el etiquetado el país de origen y la trazabilidad.
  • Modificar la ley de cadena agroalimentaria para que se tipifique como infracción la venta a pérdidas.
  • Diseñar un plan anual de inspección y control del mercado, dirigido a comprobar el origen, categoría y la pureza del aceite de oliva.

          

Paviso y Procavi, la misma explotación

Paviso y Procavi, la misma explotación

Hace tres años, denunciamos las condiciones de explotación de la principal productora española de procesamiento de pavo, Procavi, situada en Marchena, ...

_Hace tres años, denunciamos las condiciones de explotación de la principal productora española de procesamiento de pavo, Procavi, situada en Marchena, una empresa que contaba con una imagen pública impoluta, y que era el orgullo de los líderes del PSOE andaluz que no dudaban en hacer campaña y vanagloriarse en sus visitas a las instalaciones.

 

 

Después de nuestra denuncia pública han cambiado muchas cosas. Nació la Plataforma por la Dignificación de las Condiciones Laborales en Procavi, que agrupó a las organizaciones políticas y sindicales de la comarca, que denunció que el sistema de contratación estaba basado en que cada aspirante a entrar a trabajar debía pasar un mes en la cadena, produciendo pero sin cobrar. Trabajo esclavo bajo la máscara de la formación y que encima estaba promocionado a través de convenios con los Ayuntamientos de la comarca. Una de las primera victorias de la Plataforma fue llevar a los plenos municipales la prohibición de la estafa de los cursos. Ahora todo el que entra a trabajar en Procavi, lo hace cobrando desde el primer minuto.

 

Además, en estos 3 años se han conseguido bastantes avances en cuanto a condiciones laborales: se han percibido aumentos de salarios en las contratas, y mejoras en los descansos y en los calendarios laborales. Sin embargo, como lo que dan con una mano lo pretenden recuperar con la otra, la lucha de la plantilla por dignificar sus condiciones laborales y defender sus propias conquistas no ha acabado. Y, por supuesto, queda por conseguir lo más importante: acabar con la subcontratación y con la cesión ilegal de trabajadores.

 

La explotación se extiende a PAVISO

 

Otra de las consecuencias de la lucha en Procavi, fue el despido del gerente Alfonso Serrano, lo que le permitió centrarse en su propio campo de explotación en la localidad sevillana de El Viso del Alcor.

 

Ahora el modelo de Producción de Procavi se vive también en el Grupo Empresarial AviSerrano, al que pertenece Paviso y contratas como Jovi Serrano (Pinchos Jovi). Un modelo de producción basado en unos ritmos extenuantes de producción, que llegan al punto de producir desmayos o a hacerse sus necesidades encima, y en la creación de un entramado de contratas para dividir a los trabajadores y trabajadoras con diferentes convenios colectivos y diferentes condiciones, impidiendo la organización de la totalidad de la plantilla.

 

Al igual que pasaba en las contratas de Procavi antes de la organización sindical de los trabajadores, la plantilla no cuenta con un calendario laboral, lo cual impide la conciliación familiar y la planificación del tiempo personal, algo que se agrava con que las horas extras hasta ahora son impuestas como obligatorias. Dichas horas no se cobran, sino que se descuenta tiempo de trabajo cuando la fábrica por alguna razón (ajena al trabajador) decide interrumpir su producción. Es decir, hacen horas extraordinarias y a la mañana siguiente, si la empresa acelera la cadena y la producción termina antes de tiempo, mandan a la plantilla a casa y les quitan las horas del día anterior.

 

 

La plantilla trabaja bajo la tiranía de la gerencia de la empresa, que utiliza a los monitores para humillar diariamente a los operarios. "Sois unos mierdas", "aquí mandan mis huevos" , "no servis para nada" son algunos ejemplos del trato vejatorio que tienen que soportar. Además, ya se están produciendo las primeras represiones sindicales dentro de la empresa a algunos miembros del comité recientemente constituido, que tienen que ver cómo se les asignan los trabajos más duros sin la rotación que regularmente sí realizan el resto de trabajadores. Además, se están llevando a cabo despidos aleatorios alegando “falta de actitud” para introducir más miedo entre la plantilla.

 

Por si fuera poco, la empresa, en su empeño por ahorrar costes de donde sea, está poniendo en riesgo la salud de los trabajadores y las trabajadoras, pues no pone a su disposición todo el material de prevención de riesgos necesario. Además tampoco cuenta con un plan de evacuación. ¿Y si un día ocurre una desgracia?

 

Por la unidad de las plantillas

 

Estas son las condiciones laborales que han dado lugar a una situación insoportable y que han propiciado la constitución de comités de empresas, tanto en la matriz, como en una de las contratas. La plantilla se ha hartado de sacrificar tiempo, salud y dinero. Sólo piden trabajo digno.

 

 

Es el momento de la unidad. No hay tiempo que perder para organizar un comité de lucha unitaria en Paviso, que agrupe a trabajadores de la matriz y de las contratas, bajo las mismas reivindicaciones:

 

  • No a la subcontratación.

  • Calendario laboral Fijo.

  • Respeto jornada 8 horas

  • Basta abuso contratos temporales

  • Ni una humillación más a los trabajadores

  • Garantizar la seguridad y la salud laboral

  • Cada despido debe ser comunicado y justificado ante las secciones sindicales

 

Nos quieren separados, respondámosles unidos.

La denuncia de Isidoro Albarreal. Por Juan Segura Fernández

Isidoro Ignacio Albarreal denunció ante el último  pleno que alguien había aflojado las tuercas de las ruedas de su coche y lo asoció con su lucha contra la explotación minera de la Sierra de Esparteros.

 

 

El líder de AMA-Morón abandonó la tertulia radiofónica, cuando le llegó su turno de intervención, alegando que no podía estar sentado junto a quien se había reído de su denuncia durante su exposición en el pleno. Se estaba refiriendo a Ignacio Cala, portavoz del grupo municipal del PSOE.

 

Este escrito tiene como principal objetivo mostrar mi solidaridad incondicional con Albarreal. La policía tiene que investigar a fondo, poniendo todos los medios a su alcance, para descubrir a los autores materiales del atentado contra la integridad física de una autoridad municipal elegida por el pueblo de Morón. Como pista inicial hay que hacer caso a Isidoro Ignacio Albarreal en su sospecha de que los autores intelectuales están relacionados con su lucha por la protección de nuestra sierra. Es de una gravedad extrema lo que han intentado hacer a Albarreal.

 

No dispongo de la información suficiente para juzgar la conducta de Ignacio Cala en este caso por lo cual no voy a entrar en ello.

 

Pero quiero apuntar que el uso de la violencia, más todavía si esta va encaminada a poner en riesgo la integridad física,  merece el rechazo de toda persona de buena voluntad.

 

 

Por último quiero señalar que hace ocho años, al inicio de un nuevo mandato ,  la Asociación de Iniciativas Solidarias “Alhucema” presentó al pleno del Ayuntamiento, a través del grupo municipal de Izquierda Unida, una moción condenando la violencia que se estaba ejerciendo contra ella (mediante robos, roturas de cerraduras, pintadas, desalojo forzado…) Entre los hechos que se denunciaban como violentos se encontraba la rotura, a pedradas, de un cristal del coche de un socio de Alhucema que era concejal del Ayuntamiento. Se desestimó la moción al obtener sólo los votos favorables a la condena de tal violencia  de Izquierda Unida.

 

Espero y deseo que con Albarreal no suceda lo mismo.

 

 

El Ayuntamiento pleno debe condenar con total rotundidad el intento de poner en peligro la vida de uno de sus concejales.

Uno de los momentos más deprimentes del año es aquel que se produce tras el desfile de las Fuerzas Armadas, cuando los reyes de España...

_Uno de los momentos más deprimentes del año es aquel que se produce tras el desfile de las Fuerzas Armadas, cuando los reyes de España reciben a aquellas gentes que ellos reciben. Esas gentes, entre las que se inclinan representantes de los ciudadanos, forman una larguísima fila y uno a uno van marchando frente al matrimonio para besarles la mano y humillarse ante ellos. Se llama besamanos. Se llama vasallaje. Se llama degradación. Se llama ignorancia. Se llama apaga la tele o vomito.

 

 

Un rey tiene súbditos. Esto es así. Un rey no tiene votantes, no tiene “representados” por lo tanto, o sea, no es representante. Un rey no tiene conciudadanos. Un rey tiene vasallos. Les guste a los políticos del PP, Ciudadanos y PSOE o no les guste, somos vasallos y súbditos en tanto en cuanto tenemos un rey. Además han conseguido hacernos creer que existe un consenso blindado en las instituciones de que la monarquía es incuestionable. O sea, parecía hasta este momento que todos los representantes democráticamente elegidos son monárquicos, y por lo tanto lo son en nombre de todos los ciudadanos, que así pasan por ser monárquicos también.

 

En noviembre de 2016 conocimos un documento extraordinario, grabado en 1995, del que nadie parece guardar recuerdo. El presidente Adolfo Suárez confesó a la periodista Victoria Prego en una entrevista: “La mayor parte de los jefes de Gobierno extranjeros me pedían un referéndum sobre monarquía o república”. Se lo dijo tapando el micro con la mano, en una confesión apestosa de confidencia triste, a la que ella contestó: “Y eso era peligrosísimo en ese momento”. Entonces, Suárez soltó la información como quien regurgita una basura: “Hacía encuestas y perdíamos…”.

 

Así que, ni corto ni perezoso, aquel cachorro abulense de la dictadura coló en la Ley de Reforma Política de 1977 “la palabra rey y la palabra monarquía”.

 

Así, con dos borbones.

O sea, que el Reino de España es reino porque a un joven y prometedor dirigente franquista ( Suárez ocupó cargos en la dictadura desde 1958 hasta la muerte del dictador) le salió de los borbones meter la corona. En contra de lo que según sus encuestas iba a decidir la mayoría de la población, por lo tanto y evidentemente considerándola un rebaño de súbditos. Suárez no estaba solo en esa felonía, por supuesto. Ni siquiera era capaz, pero bien le ha valido un aeropuerto.

 

Y, oye, desde entonces.

 

 

Así que cuando la alcaldesa de Barcelona, Ada Colau, realizó el sencillo gesto de anunciar que no acudiría al besamanos del rey Felipe VI lo que hace no es solo representar a la parte de los ciudadanos que no cree en la monarquía, los que me temo en Barcelona son mayoría. Además, pone la idea misma de monarquía en evidencia, invita a recordar de dónde viene y, de paso, recordar la basura que aquel Suárez del Movimiento regurgitó ante la periodista Prego.

Vale tanto para señalar los legajos que se conservan en las notarías y registros de la propiedad como para comer “correctamente” con siete cuchillos, ocho tenedores y diez copas y/o vasos sabiendo que el cuchillo del pescado se debe utilizar  sólo para separar las espinasy para nada más.

 

Las palabras protocolo o etiqueta también se pueden emplear para designar un procedimiento reglado, previamente establecido, para una operación quirúrgica (por ejemplo antes de comenzar cualquier operación los que van a intervenir en ella tienen que lavarse las manos convenientemente) o puede servir para señalar que los concejales de un Ayuntamiento deben presentarse al pleno de constitución de la entidad desfilando detrás de unos funcionarios disfrazados con trajes de maceros (lleven o no lleven la maza al hombro).

 

De lo que vengo diciendo se deduce que hay protocolos y protocolos.

 

Hay protocolos totalmente necesarios que conviene guardar, proteger y fomentar  porque afectan al bien común de una manera importante. Algunos de estos protocolos, como las reglas de urbanidad (dar las gracias, dar los buenos días, ceder el asiento a un anciano o impedido,…) se están perdiendo de manera lamentable porque ayudan a forjar unas sociedades más amables y respetuosas.

 

 

Otras etiquetas no sólo no son necesarias sino que son totalmente prescindibles. Los que comen con más de un tenedor y un cuchillo lo harán por costumbre o por destacarse del resto de los mortales para señalar, normalmente, su superioridad de riqueza, clase o “glamour”. Que conste que no tengo nada en contra de que alguien se ponga a comer con todos los tenedores, cuchillos y vajilla que considere oportuno.

 

Otra cosa es que algunos  intenten hacer  pasar por el aro de sus protocolos a aquellos que los consideran innecesarios.

 

Por eso me extraña que “Juan José, el de la Librería Abril” (1) (como lo presenté en una charla que fue a dar a la Asociación de Vecinos “Dos Barrios”, de El Pantano, y que tanta gracia le hizo) haya mostrado su enfado porque los concejales de ADELANTE MORÓN (PODEMOS e IZQUIERDA UNIDA) se saltaran el protocolo de la procesión detrás de los maceros sin maza.

 

Me extraña porque entra en consideraciones políticas que no vienen al cuento y que están totalmente desenfocadas. Y porque es, normalmente, una persona bastante tolerante.

 

 

Por otra parte le comprendo porque él es muy amante de los protocolos. Pero es que además es quién ha diseñado casi todos los del Ayuntamiento. Y eso de que alguien se salga del tiesto que tú has diseñado (en realidad copiado en el caso de los maceros que es una tradición de la realeza y la nobleza) no debe resultar alentador.

 

Pero si el protocolo que existe para jurar o prometer el cargo de concejal se puede modificar según sentencia del Tribunal Supremo, mucho más se podrá modificar que los concejales vayan en dos hileras detrás de los maceros. Comprendo el dolor del “Charrito” (2) y respeto a los demás participantes en la ceremonia. Pero deben  respetar también que alguien no quiera participar en desfiles que más parecen de la Edad Media (los trajes de los maceros son de esa época) que de la actualidad.

 

Notas 1 y 2.- Empleo los términos “Charrito” y “Juan José, el de la Librería Abril” de manera cariñosa para dirigirme al Cronista de la Villa, Juan José García López con el que personalmente mantengo una buena relación y al cual estoy agradecido porque, entre otras cosas, hizo gestiones para  que no se quemara el archivo que la policía local tenía de los “rojos” de Morón ante mi denuncia de que tal cosa iba a suceder. Supongo que ese archivo estará hoy disponible para consulta de historiadores y curiosos.


          

All Saints Sunday

November 3, 2019

Ephesians 1.11-23

+ This past Friday was a very important day in the Church. Capital C. The wider, universal Church.  And for all of us.

It was one of the really important feast days. November 1 was All Saints Day. It is the day in which we commemorate all the saints who now dwell with Christ in heaven. It is a beautiful feast.

On this Feast, we celebrate the saints—those who are both well-known saints and those saints who might only be known to a few. And when anyone from St. Stephen’s dies, or when anyone close to someone at St. Stephen’s dies, you will always receive an email with a request for prayer. And the request for prayer will usually begin with these words:

“The prayers of St. Stephen’s are requested for the repose of the soul of …so-and-so.”

Occasionally, someone will ask me about that prayer request.  Someone will ask,
Why do we pray for the dead?

Why do we pray for the repose of their souls?

After all, they’ve lived their lives in this world and wherever they’re going, they’re there long before a prayer request goes out.

The fact is, we DO pray for our dead. We always have—as Anglicans and as Episcopalians.  You will hear us as Episcopalians make their petition for prayer when someone dies that you won’t hear in the Lutheran Church, or the Methodist Church or the Presbyterian Church.

Praying in such a way for people who have passed has always been a part of our Anglican tradition, and will continue to be a part of our tradition. And I can tell you, I  like that idea of praying for those who have died.

But, I want to stress, that although we and Roman Catholics both pray for our dead,  we don’t pray for people have died for the same reasons Roman Catholics do. In other words, we don’t pray to free them from purgatory, as though our prayers could somehow change God’s mind.

Rather, we pray for our deceased loved ones in the same way we pray for our living loved ones. We pray for them to connect, through God, with them. We pray to remember them and to wish them peace.

Still, that might not be good enough answer for some (and that’s all right).
So…let’s hear what the Book of Common Prayer says about it. And, yes, the Book of Common Prayer does address this very issue directly. I am going to have you pick up your Prayer Books and look in the back, to the trusty old  Catechism. 

There, on page 862 you get the very important question:
Why do we pray for the dead?

The answer (and it’s very good answer): “We pray for them, because we still hold them in our love, and because we trust that in God's presence those who have chosen to serve [God] will grow in [God’s] love, until they see [God] as [God] is.”

That is a great answer!

We pray that those who have chosen to serve God will grow in God’s love.  So, essentially, just because we die, it does not seem to mean that we stop growing in God’s love and presence.  I think that is wonderful and beautiful. And certainly worthy of our prayers.

But even more so than this definition, I think that, because we are uncertain of exactly what happens to us when we die, there is nothing wrong with praying for those who have crossed into that mystery we call “the nearer Presence of God.” After all, they are still our family and friends. They are still part of who we are.
This morning we are commemorating and remembering those people in our lives who have helped us, in various way, to know God. As you probably have guessed from the week-long commemoration we have made here at St. Stephen’s regarding the Feast of All Saints, I really do love this feast. With the death of many of my own loved ones in these last few years, this Feast has taken on particular significance for me.

What this feast shows me is what you have heard me preach in many funeral sermons again and again.

I truly, without a doubt, believe that what separates those of us who are alive here on earth, from those who are now in the “nearer presence of God” is truly a very thin one. And to commemorate them and to remember them is a good thing for all us.

I do want us to think long and hard about the saints we have known in our lives. And we have all known saints in our lives.

We have known those people who have shown us, by their example, by their goodness, that God works through us.  And I want us to at least realize that God still works through us even after we have departed from this mortal coil. Ministry in one form or the other, can continue, even following our deaths.  Hopefully, we can still, even after our deaths, do good and work toward furthering the Kingdom of God by the example we have left behind.

For me, the saints—those people who have gone before us—aren’t gone.  They haven’t just disappeared.  They haven’t just floated away and dissipated like clouds out of our midst. No, rather they are here with us, still.

They join with us, just as the angels do, when we celebrate the Eucharist.  For, especially in the Eucharist, we find that “veil” lifted for a moment. In this Eucharist that we celebrate together at this altar, we find the divisions that separate us are gone. We see how thin that veil truly is. We see that death truly does not have ultimate power over us. We see that the God of Life is ultimately victorious!

I can’t tell you how many times over the years I have heard stories from one priest or layperson or the other who have said they have experienced, especially during the Eucharist, the presence, of the multitude of saints, gathered together to worship. And there have been moments during our own liturgies here, even fairly recently, when I have felt the presence of our departed members.

Every time we worship, we worship with those who are now worshiping in the Presence of Christ. And so, when we worship here, it does feel sometimes like people we loved and worshiped with are here with us still.

It is like all those we have known in this life are still with us, still here, in that one holy, thin moment when the veil between here and there is parted for a moment. And I am very grateful for that holy moment. I am grateful to know they are still with us in some holy and beautiful way.

That is the way Holy Communion should be. It’s not just us, gathered here at the altar.  It’s the Communion of all the saints.

In fact, before we sing that glorious hymn, “Holy, Holy Holy” during the Eucharistic rite, you hear me say, “with angels and saints and all the company of heaven we sing this hymn of praise.”

That isn’t just sweet, poetic language. It’s what we believe and hope in.

In these last few years, after losing so many people in my family and among close friends, I think I have felt their presence most keenly, at times, here at this altar when we are gathered together for the Eucharist then at any other time.
In fact, on the day my mother died, as I was at the altar, I felt her presence in a strange and unique way. It was at that moment, I found out later, that she was departing from this  world. And yet, she was there with me in a very powerful and very real way! And in those moments,  know in ways I never have before, how thin that veil is between us and “them.”

You can see why I love this feast.  It not only gives us consolation in this moment, separated as we are from our loved ones, but it also gives us hope.

We know, in moments like this, where we are headed.  We know what awaits us. No, we don’t know it in detail. We’re not saying there are streets paved in gold or puffy white clouds with chubby little baby angels floating around.  We don’t have a clear vision of that place.

But we do sense it. We do feel it.  We know it’s there, just beyond our vision, just out of reach and out of focus. And “they” are all there, waiting for us. They—all the angels, all the saints, all our departed loved ones.

So, this morning—and always—we should rejoice in this fellowship we have with them. We should rejoice as the saints we are and we should rejoice with the saints that have gone before us.

In our collect this morning, we prayed that “we may come to those ineffably joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you.”

Those ineffably joys await us.  They are there, just on the other side of that thin veil.  And if we are only patient, we too, as Paul tells us in his letter to the Ephesians this morning, will obtain that inheritance that they have gained. We too will live with them in that place of unimaginable and ineffable joy and light. And that is a reason to rejoice this morning.

Luke 18.9-14

+ Since I’ve been your priest here at St., Stephen’s of quite some time now, you have gotten to known some of my pet peeves. Let’s open it up. What are some of my pet peeves?

Well, certainly only one of the big ones as a priest is none other than: triangulation. If you want to set me off like a rocket, try to nudge me into that fun catch-22.

Here’s essentially what triangulation is:  Sometimes people come to me as a priest and, because they have some issue with another parishioner, they want me to go to that other person and deal with the situation this other person is having on their behalf.

The excuse here is that, since it is a church issue, the “church guy” should take care of this issue for them. After all, I must be on their side of this issue, right?

Now, to be clear, THEY don’t want to confront the person. But they seem to think it’s somehow the priest’s job to confront that person for them and for this particular issue that they themselves see as something that needs to be confronted.

Before we go on from here I just want to be clear: It is NOT the priest’s job to do this. Nowhere in my contract does it say I am to do this kind of a job.  What this triangulation does is it puts the priest not in their rightful position as priest, but only puts them in an awkward situation in which they can’t win.  Stuck right in the middle.

One of the things I have been very proactive about in my ministry is avoiding that ugly situation of triangulation.  Triangulation, as you can guess, is one of the quickest “clergy killers” out there. You want your priest out, all of you have to do is try to draw them into an ugly triangle like this.  

Actually, I luckily, have not really had to deal with triangulation much here at St. Stephen’s very often. And those times when it has come up, I have reacted pretty strongly against it.  One of the great aspects of St. Stephen’s has been the self-reliance of the parishioners. But, in other congregations, let me tell you, they do attempt to resort to triangulation quite often. And…I hear many fellow clergy share stories in which they have found themselves trapped in the middle of those situations.

In the past, when I have found myself being nudged into such a situation, I finally have had to ask a question.  I, of course, tell the person: you need to talk to this person if you have an issue with them.  You’re talking to them will probably be much more successful than my talking to them on your behalf.

But, if that doesn’t work—and it usually doesn’t work—I ask those people: “have you tried praying for them?” And I’m not saying, praying for them to change, for them to be more like what you expect them to be. Have you just prayed for them, as they are? Because when we do that, we find that maybe nothing in that other person changes—ultimately we can’t control how other people act or do things—but rather weare the ones who change. We are the ones who find ourselves changing our attitude about that person, or seeing that person from another perspective.

However it works, prayer like this can be disconcerting and frightening.  Let me tell you. I have done it. I’ll be honest: I have had issues with people who do not meet my own personal expectations.

But I do find that as I pray for them, as I struggle before God about them, sometimes nothing in that other person changes. (God also does not allow God’s self to be triangulated) But I often find myself changing my attitude about them, even when I don’t want to.

Prayer, often, is the key. But not controlling prayer.  Rather, prayer that allows us to surrender to God’s will.  That’s essentially what’s happening in today’s Gospel reading.

In our story we find the Pharisee.  A Pharisee was a very righteous person. They belonged to an ultra-orthodox sect of Judaism that placed utmost importance on a strict observance of the Law of Moses—the Torah.  

The Pharisee is not praying for any change in himself. He arrogantly brags to God about how wonderful and great he is in comparison to others.

 The tax collector—someone who was ritually unclean according the Law of Moses— however, prays that wonderful, pure prayer

“God, be merciful to me, a sinner!”

It’s not eloquent. It’s not fancy. But it’s honest. And it cuts right to heart of it all.

To me, in my humble opinion, that is the most perfect prayer any of us can pray.

“God, be merciful to me, a sinner!”

It’s a prayer I have held very, very dear for so long. And it is a prayer that had never let me down once. Prayers for mercy are probably one of the purest and most honest prayers we can make.  And what I love even more about this parable is the fact that the prayer of the Pharisee isn’t even necessarily a bad prayer in and of itself.  I mean, there’s an honesty in it as well.

The Pharisee is the religious one, after all.  He is the one who is doing right according to organized religion.   He is doing what Pharisees do; he is doing the “right” thing; he is filling his prayer with thanksgiving to God.  

In fact, every morning, the Pharisee, like all orthodox Jewish men even to this day, pray a series of “morning blessings.” These morning blessings include petitions like

“Blessed are you, Lord God, King of the Universe, who made me a son of Israel.”

“Blessed are you, Lord God, King of the Universe, who did not make me a slave.”

And this petition:

“Blessed are you, Lord God, King of the Universe, who did not make me a woman.”

So, this prayer we hear the Pharisee pray in our story this morning is very much in line with the prayers he would’ve prayed each morning.

Again, we should be clear: we should all thank God for all the good things God grants us. The problem arises in the fact that the prayer is so horribly self-righteous and self-indulgent that it manages to cancel out the rightness of the prayer.  The arrogance of the prayer essentially renders it null and void.

The tax collector’s prayer however is so pure.  It is simple and straight-to-the-point.  This is the kind of prayer Jesus again and again holds up as an ideal form of prayer.  But what gives it its punch is that is a prayer of absolute humility.

And humility is the key here.  It gives the prayer just that extra touch.   There is no doubt in our minds as we hear this parable that God hears—and grants—this prayer, even though it is being prayed by someone considered to be the exact opposite of the Pharisee.

Whereas the Pharisee is the religious one, the righteous one, the tax collector, handling all that pagan unclean money of the conquerors, is unclean.  He is an outcast. 

Humility really is the key. And it is one of the things, speaking only for myself here, that I am sometimes lacking in my own spiritual life.

But, humility is important.  It is essential to us as followers of Jesus.

St. Teresa of Avila, the great Carmelite saint, once said, “Humility, humility. In this way we let our Lord conquer, so that [God] hears our prayer.”

I think we’re all a bit guilty of lacking humility in our own lives, certainly in our spiritual lives and in being self-righteous when it comes to sin.  We all occasionally find ourselves wishing we could control and correct the shortcomings and failures of others.   When a person fails miserably, or is caught in a scandal,  find myself saying: “Thank God it’s them and not me.” Which is terrible of me! And maybe that’s also an honest prayer to make.  Because what we also say in that prayer is that we, too, are capable of being just that  guilty.

We all have a shadow side.  And maybe that’s what we’re seeing in those people we want to correct.  There’s no way around the fact that we do have shadow sides. But the fact is, the only sins we’re responsible for ultimately—the only people who can ultimately control—are our own sins—not the sins of others.  

We can’t pay the price of other’s sins—only Jesus can and has done that—nor should we delight in the failings or shortcomings of others. All we can do as Christians, sometimes, is humble ourselves.  Again and again.

Sometimes all we can do is let God deal with a situation, or a person who drives us crazy.

God, have mercy on me, a sinner

We must learn to overlook what others are doing sometimes.  Doing so, exhausts me.  And so I don’t know why I would want to deal with other’s issues if my own issues exhaust me.

There are too many self-righteous Christians in the world.   We know them.  They frustrate us.   And they irritate us.   We don’t need anymore.  

What we need are more humble, contrite Christians.   We need to be Christians who don’t see anyone as inferior to us—as charity cases to whom we can share our wealth and privileges and whom we wish to control and make just like us.

Rather, to paraphrase the great St. Therese of Lisieux: we should sit down with sinners, not as their benefactors but as the “most wretched of them all.”

That is true humility.  In our own eyes, if we carry true humility within us, if we are our own stiffest and most objective judges, then we know that we are the most wretched of them all and that we are in no place to condemn others. In dealing with others, we have no other options than just simply to love those people—fully and completely, even when they drive us crazy.

 Sin or no sin, we must simply love them and hate our own sins.   That is what it means to be a true follower of Jesus.  It is essential if we are going to truly love those we are called by Jesus to love and it is essential to our sense of honesty before God.

So, let us steer clear of such self-righteousness. But, in being humble, let us also not beat ourselves up and be self-deprecating. Rather, let us work to overcome our own shortcomings and rise above them.  Let us look at others with pure eyes—with eyes of love.  Let us not see the shortcomings and failures of others, but let us see the light and love of God permeating through them, no matter who they are.  And with this perception, let us realize that all of us who have been humbled will be lifted up by God and exalted in ways so wonderful we cannot even begin to fathom them in this moment.

In The 1920s, 1 In 3 Eligible Men In Dallas Were KKK Members

 Cache   

In the beginning of the 20th century, the Ku Klux Klan ruled much of Dallas — one in three men in the city were members of the white supremacist group.

It was a dark period of the KKK dominating civic life — and a chapter that the city of Dallas has never fully examined, says Michael Phillips, a historian at Collin College outside Dallas and author of “White Metropolis: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in Dallas, 1841-2001.”

The KKK gained control of the city in the 1920s after a Dallas dentist, Hiram Wesley Evans, overthrew the founder of what was known as the “Second Klan,” he says.

“The KKK ran Dallas, and it became the epicenter of the movement,” Phillips says.

Dallas rising as the center of the KKK movement was bound to happen, Phillips says.

At the time, Texas was a state beset by an “extraordinary level of racist violence,” he says.

“Between the 1880s and the 1930s, there were at least 349 African Americans lynched in Texas,” he says. “It was the third-highest number in the entire union, and it’s only behind Georgia and Mississippi in those years. So there’s an atmosphere there anyway.”

Interview Highlights

On how Dallas newspapers tried to take on the KKK

“Well, we have to be clear on the motives, though, because the Dallas Morning News institutionally is very proud of its opposition to the Klan. And, you know, the press would cover floggings that took place, but what the Morning News was worried about was not racism. The Morning News in one editorial said, ‘White supremacy is not imperiled.’ They were worried about the lawlessness of the Klan and how that would affect the bottom line for Dallas business-wise. And also, they were worried about what they saw as a potential radicalism. And that’s one of the crazy things about the Morning News’ view of the Klan.

“What happened was when the Klan started, the first people they would recruit are people in the upper echelon — economic elites, business elites, etc. — and they’d work their way down because it was a pyramid scheme. People would get a percentage of membership fees. As they began to get to the working class, that’s when the Morning News was alarmed, and in fact, the Morning News tried to portray the Klan, which is a far-right organization, as potentially a left-wing organization. And they said, ‘Word on the streets is the Klan is red. The Klan is communist,’ which is an absurdity.”

On the Dallas Morning News being more concerned with social order than racism

“Racism was not a concern. They made it very clear in their editorial pages what they were worried about is social order. And one of the themes in Dallas history is this terror of not just African Americans, but also of the white working class and the ability to control this. And this will come out decades later when Dallas schools are ordered desegregated in 1961. They put together — and the Morning News is involved in this effort and the other major media outlets — this propaganda film. They hire Walter Cronkite from CBS News to narrate it. And the premise of the film is we know we have all these troublemakers out in the working class, and we know who you are and we’ll come after you if you cause trouble when the schools are desegregated. Actually, Dallas schools desegregated peacefully in 1961, but there was this panic that this working class can’t be controlled.

“And this is a time, the 1920s, 1930s, Dallas is industrializing. It’s a banking center. And you actually have union activism at a level most people don’t associate with the South. There was a Ford plant. We have a garment workers’ strike in the 1930s in Dallas. And so the Dallas Morning News, which was a voice of elites, was more worried about disorder from the people of working class origins. They conditionally accepted the Jewish community in Dallas. They conditionally accepted people who they saw as marginally white. They were not worried about oppression of black people at all because Dallas was a very highly segregated city and its police department was filled with Klansmen. And when Dallas police officers shot African Americans, they were not concerned with that. They were more concerned about social order and how they would affect outside investment.”

On the KKK fighting for anti-immigrant policies in Dallas

“It’s a good thing The Dallas Morning News opposed the KKK. I don’t think anyone would argue with that at all. But I think the motive may not be as pure, and in fact, it had to do with class politics as well as with racial politics. And the Morning News was definitely the voice of the real estate developers, the bankers, the oil money, etc. Also, the Klan was an anti-immigrant organization. And at that point in Texas — and of course, people in Dallas are heavily invested still in the cotton production industry — Texas had lobbied successfully the U.S. Congress to give an exemption when they passed this really strict anti-immigration bill in 1924, the Johnson-Reed Act. There was an exemption for Mexican immigration because they were using Mexicans and Mexican Americans as cheap sources of labor in the fields. That would be another motive because the Klan just wanted to shut the border completely. That created a threat to the economic interests of the big landowners in Texas. So it’s complicated.

“I think the picture you have an obvious set of villains, the Klan, but the heroes are more complicated in their motives than I think the way Dallas remembers it. And that’s the thing is Dallas is hostile to remembrance of history. White people in Texas are afraid they are going to pay a price for their oppression. What Sigmund Freud would have called projection. This explains, for instance, why police often respond violently to unarmed African Americans in the state. And I think there’s a great deal of denial still. Dallas is a laboratory of forgetfulness. And I think that lack of knowledge of Dallas’s very troubled racial past has made it blind to the circumstances, the number of shootings we have in this city still of unarmed black and brown people and the underlying economic injustice that shapes a city that still frames the racial tensions we have here.”

How Governor Kemp's Proposed Medicaid Plans Stand To Impact Georgians

 Cache   
Georgia is currently ranked third among states with most uninsured residents. More than 1.4 million Georgians were without insurance in 2018. Governor Kemp announced the second of two healthcare waiver proposals to increase coverage on Monday. If approved, the waivers will allow the state of Georgia to remain compliant with the Federal Affordable Care Act — making changes to the health insurance market in the state without expanding Medicaid. Georgia is currently one of 14 states that have chosen to not fully expand Medicaid.

Fátima Avelino tem aprovado projeto que reserva vagas em creches municipais para mulheres vítimas de violência

 Cache   

Foi apresentado na sessão desta terça (05), projeto de Lei Ordinária nº 06/2019, de autoria da vereadora Maria de Fátima Avelino (MDB), que “Autoriza o Poder Executivo Municipal a reservar vagas em creches para crianças em idade compatível, filhos (as) de mulheres vítimas de violência domésticas, de natureza física e/ou sexual”.
            De Acordo com Fátima é necessário garantir essas vagas, pois hoje são 37 creches com 35 na zona urbana e 02 na zona rural e as mulheres vítimas precisam de um tratamento diferenciado e não tem onde deixar suas crianças. Disse que já existe uma lista de espera  nas creches e por isso é obrigatório que isso seja regra.
            Adhemar Jr (PSC) lembrou que a lei 13.882/ 2019  do governo federal que entrou em vigor no mês de outubro também versa sobre esse assunto e deu os parabéns a vereadora, por trazer essa questão e o assunto para o município
            A vereadora informou que a reservar de vagas é necessária porque já existe essa lista de espera muito grande nas creches e tem que ser dada total prioridade a essas mulheres que são vítimas de violência. “Pela fragilidade e pela situação que se encontram em função de violência onde elas muitas vezes não têm nem onde deixar a criança, e se veem obrigadas a buscar espaço em abrigos para encontra refúgio. Tendo essa vaga nas creches onde a criança é alimentada, tem todo atendimento e passa os dois turnos sendo cuidada o dia todo, essa mãe terá condições de fazer um tratamento psicológico e também trabalhar fora. Apresento este projeto e me sinto muito feliz em poder contribuir com a rede da educação infantil do município de imperatriz”, disse.
            O projeto foi em uma única votação e teve parecer favorável das comissões. Foi aprovado por unanimidade e irá ser encaminhado ao prefeito para ser sancionado.

Особое внимание было уделено вопросам совместных исследовательских работ по проблематике евразийского и азиатско-тихоокеанского регионов. Во встрече с министром приняли участие руководители профильных подразделений монгольского МИДа, многие из которых также выпускники МГИМО. С российской стороны на этой встрече, равно как и в ходе других рабочих переговоров, мгимовцам в местной специфике помогал сориентироваться советник-посланник нашего Посольства Р.Р.Ракшаев.

В течение дня гости из Москвы встретились с ведущими представителями бизнес-сообщества Монголии, которое также в значительной степени сформировано выпускниками нашего университета. Состоялся подробный разговор об организации международного делового форума выпускников МГИМО в Монголии с Д.Зоригтом, руководителем нескольких крупных компаний и б.министром минеральных ресурсов и энергетики.

Вопросы гуманитарного сотрудничества, студенческих и преподавательских грантов, информационного взаимодействия, равно как и форума выпускников, были обсуждены на встрече с правлением Монгольской ассоциации под председательством П.Цаагана.

Прекрасные переводчики Ю.Кручкин и С.Безруков известны широкой монгольской общественности.

IMG_5731

С 21 октября по 3 ноября прошел III арт-фестиваль МГИМО, приуроченный к 75-летию Университета. Проект МГИМО АРТ был создан в 2012 году с целью формирования нового «пространства искусства» для укрепления контактов выпускников МГИМО разных лет. На сегодняшний день движение МГИМО АРТ объединило выпускников, студентов, сотрудников и друзей МГИМО и на протяжении уже 3-х лет в МГИМО проходит арт-фестиваль, где каждый любитель искусства найдет мероприятие себе по душе.

Кульминацией Арт-фестиваля традиционно стала ежегодная Арт-выставка «Мир глазами МГИМОвцев», в этом году уже в 7 раз прошедшая в стенах МГИМО. 50 художников представили более 120 работ в различных техниках: инсталляция, живопись, рисунок, смешанная техника, фотография и другие. В выставке традиционно принимают участие выпускники и сотрудники МГИМО, но с каждым годом число студентов заметно растет.

21 октября 2019 года на малой сцене Конференц-зала состоялось торжественное открытие VII арт-выставки. С приветственным словом выступили Ректор А.В. Торкунов, заслуженный художник РФ Н.С. Сафронов и директор Ассоциации выпускников И.А. Арсеньев.

В Атриуме Нового корпуса состоялась фотовыставка Игоря Владимировича Лилеева "Квадратура круга. Необычный МГИМО". В 2019 году исполнилось 35 лет профессиональной деятельности И.В. Лилеева в МГИМО. прошлое, настоящее и будущее - в кадрах Игоря Владимировича. Данная выставка - особый авторский взгляд на МГИМО снаружи и внутри. Взгляд, которым мы дорожим.

 

В этом году в рамках фестиваля прошел целых цикл лекций о современном искусстве.

21 октября совместно со студенческим объединением ART|LAB была организована сессия «Студенты МГИМО о современном искусстве».. Приглашенными гостями сессии стали: Софья Троценко, Маргарита Пушкина, Полина Аскери и Дмитрий Гутов. Студенты смогли задать экспертам интересующие их вопросы и побеседовать со столь известными личностями и неформальной обстановке.

22 октября Ассоциацией выпускников был организован круглый стол «Современный Арт: Бизнес или Искусство?». Выпускники МГИМО имели возможность пообщаться и подискутировать, а также поделиться опытом и все же ответить на один из главных вопросов современного искусства.

22 октября в рамках кино-фестиваля состоялся показ документального фильма «На пути к доверию: русские в Японии». Фильм был создан при поддержке Международного Фонда Шодиева. На показе присутствовали: директор Фонда О.А. Монахова и заведующий кафедрой дипломатии А.Н. Панов. Фильм посмотрели не только студенты и выпускники МГИМО, но и ученики Горчаковского лицея.

III кино-фестиваль пройдет в середине ноября, запланированы мастер-классы, показ короткометражных фильмов и выступления студентов и выпускников по кино индустрии.

24 октября в Шахматной гостиной прошел Поэтический вечер, организованный совместно с Поэтическим клубом МГИМО и коллективом MGIMO Symphony. В вечере приняли участие более 15 поэтов (студенты МГИМО и других Университетов, выпускники).Симфонический коллектив MGIMO Symphony добавил вечеру новых красок, исполнив сразу два произведения.

Завершился III арт-фестиваль МГИМО фееричной театральной постановкой. 26 октября на главной сцене Конференц-зала состоялась постановка Театр-студии МГИМО по одноименной пьесе А.Володина «Пять вечеров».

Ассоциация выпускников МГИМО благодарит ПАО «Северсталь» - спонсора III арт-фестиваля МГИМО. Также выражаем благодарность оргкомитету движения МГИМО АРТ в лице руководителя Стерликовой Любы за помощь в организации и проведении Арт-фестиваля.

Месяц с расторопшей

Месяц с расторопшей

У меня гепатит С , им я болею более 20 лет. Чищу печень я 2 раза в год: ампулу тиосульфата натрия развожу в двух стаканах кипяченой воды комнатной температуры и пью на ночь спустя 3-4 часа после еды. Утром будет разжиженный стул. Выпить надо 10 ампул за 10 дней. 

А при болях и увеличенной печени четверть стакана сока грейпфрута и столько же оливкового масла выпиваю на ночь теплыми, потом нужно лечь на правый бок. Так делать 5 раз через день.

Хорошо восстанавливают клетки печени препараты из расторопши: 1 ч.ложку порошка расторопши залить водой и принимать за 30 минут до еды 3 раза в день. Курс – 1 месяц, через 10 дней его следует повторить. Можно пить отвар овса: стакан овса залить 2 л воды и кипятить 30 минут. Настоять 1 час, пить по стакану 2-3 раза в день. Так делать 2-3 месяца. 

Полезны для печени диетические блюда из тыквы, лесная земляника, нежирный творог – все это нужно есть по 100 г каждый день. 

Больную печень нельзя греть, противопоказаны сауны и парилка.

Сверху "панцирь", а внутри - много-много вкуса.

Привет, друзья! :) Это вариация на тему пожарских котлет. Вариация, потому что не знаю, как правильно готовят пожарские котлеты, зато вот эти котлеты всегда получаются на отлично.

На гарнир к ним подойдут, наверное, любые овощи. Или картофельное пюре.

5177462_original5020 (700x466, 205Kb)

Сок из такой котлет сам вытекает, когда ее разрезаешь. Даже никакой соус не нужен.

Размер котлет выбирайте сами. Я делаю большие котлеты - один окорок, одна котлета. Но можно сделать и две. В таком случае батон для сухарей режьте мельче и меньше времени доводите котлеты до готовности в духовке.

Как готовить:

С окорочков снять филе и измельчить вместе с луком. Если у вас есть мясорубка - сделайте на ней. У меня ее нет, поэтому ножом. Курицу будет очень легко измельчить, если она будет чуть подморожена. В это же время можно отправить в духовку на 180 градусов порезанный небольшими кубиками батон без корочки.

На фото зубочистка - для масштаба. Чем мельче порубите фарш, тем плотнее будет котлета.
На фото зубочистка - для масштаба. Чем мельче порубите фарш, тем плотнее будет котлета.

Посолите и поперчите фарш и хорошо выместите вместе с луком. Теперь очень важный момент - замороженное сливочное масло. Его следует натереть в фарш на самой мелкой терке. Немного, на один окорочок примерно 35-45 граммов масла. И снова перемешать.

Наверное, весь фокус - в масле.
Наверное, весь фокус - в масле.

Затем сформировать котлету, уложить ее на слой сухарей и слегка придавить - сухари намертво прилипнуть к фаршу. То же самое сделать со второй стороной.

Можно поливать котлету маслом, пока она жарится.

Обжарить в масле на сильном огне по паре минут с каждой стороны. Задача - запечатать внутри соки, и сделать корочку. Можно поливать раскаленным маслом котлету, пока она жарится на другой стороне. По две минуты с каждой стороны будет достаточно.

Финал - духовка.
Финал - духовка.

И довести на 180 градусах в духовке - большая котлета приготовится за 30-35 минут, вдвое меньшая - за 20 минут. 

Получается плотная и невероятно сочная котлета.

Valushok---хочу поделиться с вами рецептом необыкновенного пирога, простого в приготовлении, с которым справится даже начинающая хозяюшка, минимум продуктов, максимум удовольствия. Тесто из трех компонентов, без яиц, очень нежное. В процессе приготовления получается с золотистой корочкой. Начинка из двух видов лука сведет с ума даже тех, кто не любит лук. В процессе приготовления верх пирога с копченым колбасным сыром покрывается красивой корочкой и источает такой аромат, что сбегаются все соседи. А муж, придя с работы, с порога спрашивает:"А чем это у нас так вкусно пахнет?" Попробовав этот пирог один раз, будете готовить его снова и снова.

Ингредиенты для «Пирог "Быстро, просто, вкусно"»:

Время приготовления:

Рецепт «Пирог "Быстро, просто, вкусно"»:

Приготовим необходимые продукты.

Сметану размешаем с размягченным маслом.
Добавим муку. Замесим тесто.

Тесто получается мягкое, очень нежное.
Положим его в пакет и уберем в холодильник на 30 минут.

Лук почистим, нарежем, лучше всего, полукольцами,
я спешила и нарезала иначе.

Притушим лук в сотейнике до мягкости и прозрачности.

Выложим лук на сито, чтобы стекло лишнее масло.
Зеленый лук нарежем.
Сыр колбасный натрем на крупной терке.

Тесто достанем из холодильника и выложим в форму, формируя бортики. Я выкладываю тесто на пергамент для выпечки, чтобы легче было извлекать корж из формы.
Форма у меня диаметром 24 см.

На тесто первым слоем выкладываем притушенный репчатый лук.

Вторым слоем кладем зеленый лук.

Третьим слоем кладем натертый колбасный сыр. Впрочем, сыр можно заранее не измельчать на терке, а натереть непосредственно на пирог.

Для заливки пирога сметану взбить с яйцами.

Присолим слегка сметанно-яичную смесь.

Зальем сверху начинку.
Запекаем при 180 градусах 30 минут.

Угощайтесь, друзья, пирог готов.
В процессе запекания копченый колбасный сыр источает такой аромат, что очень хочется побыстрее попробовать кусочек пирога.

Robotics and Hands-on Learning Improve Middle-School Confidence

 Cache   
Good article from smartbrief.com
"How hands-on learning improves middle-school confidence"


Aaron Maurer
"...the endangered species at the core of this workshop is the engaged student."
“Saving the Endangered Species.” That’s the name of a full-day workshop I’ve been leading with educators.


I’m not a biologist, however. I’m an educator. And the endangered species at the core of this workshop is the engaged student. How do we find, rescue and cultivate engaged students today, especially at the middle school and high school levels where so many kids check out?


As students come up through the school system and start to approach middle school, we tend to frontload their classroom experience with pressure. Take these notes. Read this chapter. Take this test.


There is pressure coming at them from other angles too. These are the years when students are going through a lot of change — changes in schedule, changes in their bodies, changes in their friends and social groups.


It’s a time when their vulnerability is high, and the effects of a perceived failure in an activity can take on magnified meaning. I often hear kids say, “I’m not good at music.” Or math. Or basketball. They start to self-select out of subjects and programs. Their confidence at this age can be fragile.
This is especially true with subjects that have a reputation for being “hard,” including math and engineering. A recent survey from Harris Interactive in partnership with LEGO Education found that just one in five kids said they feel “very confident” when it comes to STEAM subjects.


Raising confidence in STEAM can be especially difficult because if a student fails a math test, they tend to conclude they are just innately bad at math. Their confidence wavers, and if they experience disapproval of that failure from peers or parents, they may try to avoid the subject entirely, fearing the risk of repeating those experiences. The same survey revealed that 47% of students say they avoid subjects where they have failed before.


There’s another big change that happens in education once we hit middle school, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence. Schools start to slide away from hands-on learning right around third grade, when standardized testing begins to take hold in the mindset of educators and schools. Most critically, you see this shift at that sensitive middle school level. With so much going on at this stage of learning, we must find a way to keep that physical, tactile, experiential learning space and culture going at the secondary level.


Hands-on learning — learning through building, through trial and error, through collaboration — has the power to engage kids in a way that lectures and worksheets simply don’t. Getting hands-on with a challenge or a task allows them to explore and realize there isn’t just one answer. It allows them to experience failure in a healthy way and realize that failing at a task is a natural part of the learning process and does not mean a subject is out of their reach.


Then there’s that all-important sense of accomplishment. It’s a rush when you build a robot and it moves for the first time. When something doesn’t work and kids have the opportunity to troubleshoot and make it work, you can see their confidence light up.


In my teaching days, I gravitated toward solutions that allowed my middle school students the freedom to build and create on their own, and that’s the direction I point administrators and teachers today. Although there are many out-of-the-box projects available, I advise teachers who themselves are often building confidence in STEAM subjects to find ones that let students come up with their own ideas.


How to go about bringing hands-on learning into the classroom is a question every district and school has to decide for themselves. It all starts with your learning space and the culture you’ve created. The same research found that 95% of teachers believe that hands-on builds confidence, yet 4 in 10 say it’s not typical at their schools.


It truly is amazing what can happen if you just give kids a challenge or a good prompt and allow them to take their own ideas and put them into practice. The struggle can be just as valuable as the success. By getting hands-on in middle school and beyond, we can start to move away from some of the pressure that’s causing confidence and engagement to decline today, and infuse learning with a state of wonder, trial and error, and challenge and solution..."

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. (Thurs Nov 7, 9 pm, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, $25; w/Patricia Wolf, Wild Card) ROBERT HAM


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

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

WED NOV 13

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.

THURS NOV 14

{{image:2, align:right, width:250}}

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. (Fri Nov 15, 8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, 8 NE Killingsworth, $10-12) ROBERT HAM

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. (Sun Nov 17, 8:30 pm, Wonder Ballroom, 128 N Russell, $25-28) JENNI MOORE


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.

WED NOV 20

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.

Iowa Ranks #18 In First College Football Playoff Rankings

 Cache   

Rankings ahoy! The College Football Playoff rankings, the first set of college football rankings that actually matter (even if they won't really matter until about a month from now) were released on Tuesday night and Iowa was represented. The Hawkeyes checked in at #18... exactly the same as the AP and Coaches Polls

CFP rankings - week 10 2019

This is the third straight season that Iowa has appeared in the CFP rankings at least once and the fourth time in the last five seasons. Obviously, with two losses, Iowa's odds of making the College Football Playoff are extremely remote -- they'd need to win their last four regular season games, beat Ohio State or Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game, and get quite a bit of help in terms of other results -- but the CFP rankings aren't just about the Playoff. The rankings are also used to determine the match-ups for the other New Year's Six bowls. As Mike noted in the bowl projections, due to the rotation of the Playoff bowls and the conference contracts with the New Year's Six bowls, there are fewer at-large spots than normal, which will complicate Iowa's hopes of getting one. There's really just one thing Iowa can do: keep winning and see how things turn out. 

Meanwhile, the overall College Football Playoff rankings had a few surprises at the top of the rankings. 

RANKING TEAM
1 Ohio State
2 LSU
3 Alabama
4 Penn State
5 Clemson
6 Georgia
7 Oregon
8 Utah
9 Oklahoma
10 Florida
11 Auburn
12 Baylor
13 Wisconsin
14 Michigan
15 Notre Dame
16 Kansas State
17 Minnesota
18 Iowa
19 Wake Forest
20 Cincinnati
21 Memphis
22 Boise State
23 Oklahoma State
24 Navy
25 SMU

Ohio State appearing at #1 atop the rankings is notable for a few reasons -- one, the AP and Coaches Polls had LSU and Alabama there, and two, it's the first time ever a Big Ten team has been ranked #1 in the College Football Playoff rankings at any point. (Ohio State won the Playoff in 2014, but they were never #1 in those rankings.) In fact, it's the first time a team that wasn't from the SEC or the ACC has been ranked #1 in the CFP rankings. 

The rankings include two Big Ten and two SEC teams in the top four and leave defending national champion -- and still undefeated -- Clemson out in the cold, but that doesn't really matter at this point. LSU and Alabama -- #2 and #3 here -- are set to play this week and Ohio State and Penn State -- #1 and #4 -- will play in two weeks. So those teams in the top four are going to eat some losses and provide opportunities for teams below them to move up. If Clemson runs the table in the ACC, they'll be one of the Top Four and in the Playoff.

Georgia at #6 raises the specter of the SEC getting two teams into the Playoff again; if they win out and beat LSU/Bama in the SEC Championship Game, then the Dawgs would definitely be in and it's not a stretch to think that the loser of that title game (LSU/Bama) wouldn't fall out of the Top Four, either. The Big Ten also has a decent shot of putting two teams into the Playoff, given the high placement of OSU and PSU here; it really depends how far the loser of that game drops. What that all means is that if you're Utah/Oregon or Oklahoma, you have no margin of error -- and you're going to need some help. 

The Playoff selection committee also showed that they aren't big fans yet of the teams scorned by the "_____ ain't played no one" crowd yet, putting 8-0 Baylor at #12 and 8-0 Minnesota at #17. Both teams will be fine if they take care of business -- they'll face plenty of real tests in November -- but they're not getting any benefit of the doubt for managing the first two months of the season without a loss. 


          

WE'RE TALKING BOWL GAMES 2019: POST WEEK 10

 Cache   

Hello Friend.

Hello Friend

Would you like to talk about bowl games? Of course you would.

The Iowa Hawkeyes escaped BYE week, 10-0, thanks to some stellar defense and Iowa running the ball 60 times for an unbelievable 1.4 YPC. Nate Stanley had another weird game, going 15/34 for 304 yards and an interception. A.J. Epenesa also killed a guy and Iowa actually decided that a large flexible traffic cone was their best option at left guard.

No, but really, all jokes aside, Iowa didn’t play last week so they’re sitting pretty at 6-2 (3-2). A number of Big Ten teams didn’t play last week and the ones that did, well, played in bad games. Michigan moved to 7-2 with a 38-7 win over Maryland, a team that is now 3-6 and has OSU and MSU left on their schedule. You might find this hard to believe but Maryland was actually ranked at one point this season! It’s true! Nebraska’s embarrassment continued in West Lafayette, as they lost 31-27 to a Purdue team that is basically pulling students from the stands to play football. Neither team will likely go bowling.

With losses this week, Rutgers and Northwestern are both eliminated from bowl contention, which is for the best. There is some discussion as to whether or not this Northwestern team has one of the worst offenses of all time. It’s hard to beat the 1981 Northwestern Wildcats, a team that went 0-11, was shutout in five games and averaged 7.5 PPG. Fun fact: Northwestern fielded 5-6 of the worst football teams of all time in like a 10-15-year period in the late 1970’s-1980’s. Rawr!

Indiana, on the other hand, is now 7-2 (4-2), but has Penn State, Michigan and Purdue left on the schedule. Hell of the season for the Hoosiers but it’s looking like 8-4 and, hey, for Indiana, that’s good! Illinois is 5-4 and has Northwestern on the schedule. Whether you like it or not, Illinois appears to be improving under Lovie Smith.

Going Bowling: Ohio State, Penn State, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin.

Enjoying Ro-Tel Queso this Holiday Season: Rutgers, Northwestern.

TBD: Michigan State, Maryland, Illinois, Purdue, Nebraska.

Here's your bowl game info:

  • Four teams are chosen for the College Football Playoff and six bowls rotate for the semifinals: Rose, Sugar, Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, and Peach. The bowls hosting the semifinals this year are the Peach and Fiesta. The National Championship will be played in the Superdome, NOLA, on January 13th.
  • As the Rose Bowl is not hosting a semifinal, if the Big Ten Champion is selected for the College Football Playoff, the next highest ranked team by the CFB Playoff Committee, or the runner-up, will be selected for the Rose Bowl.
  • The highest-ranked champion from the Group of Five mid-majors (AAC, C-USA, MAC, MWC, Sun Belt) is guaranteed a spot in the non-playoff bowls if they fail to make the playoff.
  • The Big Ten has a six-year contract with the eight non-playoff bowl games (through this season). The Big Ten has an eight-year contract with the Pinstripe Bowl (through 2021).
  • I used to say that the Big Ten has a tiered selection process when it comes to selecting teams but I don’t really believe that anymore. Basically, the bowls will choose whoever they want. If you want to rank them in “respectability” you could say: 1) Rose, 2) Orange, 3) Citrus, 4) Holiday, Outback, 5) Pinstripe, Music City/TaxSlayer, and Redbox, 6) Quick Lane and First Responder (formerly known as the Heart of Dallas Bowl)/Armed Forces.
  • As the Orange Bowl is not hosting a Playoff semifinal, a Big Ten team will be eligible, but not guaranteed to play in Miami. 
  • Iowa has played in the following bowls since 2010: Insight, Outback, TaxSlayer, Rose, Outback, Pinstripe, Outback.

Now, the following could be considered “rules” or they could be considered “goals” for bowl games. It isn’t clear whether or not these things are contractual or not. With that explanation given, here are some Iowa-centric “rules”:

  • Iowa technically cannot play in the Outback Bowl following this season. The agreement called for five different teams over a period of six years. Only four teams have played in the Outback Bowl during that timeframe: Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern, and Wisconsin.
  • Dr. Hawks (great name) brought it to my attention that the Music City Bowl and TaxSlayer Bowl agreement stipulates that three Big Ten teams and three ACC teams are to play over a six-year period (which ends following this season). Three Big Ten teams have already played in the Music City Bowl, so it looks like the Music City should be an ACC bowl game this season.
  • If that’s the case, the TaxSlayer Bowl would be a Big Ten game. However, no Big Ten team is to play in the TaxSlayer or Music City Bowl more than once during the term of the agreement. As Iowa played in 2015, they would not be eligible to play in the TaxSlayer Bowl again.
  • The Holiday Bowl has met its five-team “quota” so they can choose whoever they want.
  • The Pinstripe Bowl has a “goal” of eight different teams in eight years and they’re actually on track with zero repeats since 2014. At the very least, they must have six different teams and as they’ve had five, they’ve got a lot of room to choose whoever they can get.

Media Projections:

247 Sports: Holiday, vs. Arizona State

Athlon Sports: Holiday, vs. USC

Bleacher Report: Gator, vs. Kentucky

Brett McMurphy: Holiday, vs. Washington

CBS Sports: Holiday, vs. Arizona State

College Football News: Gator, vs. Kentucky

ESPN (Mark Schlabach): Gator, vs. Tennessee

ESPN (Kyle Bonagura): Gator, vs. Tennessee

SBNation: Holiday, vs. Arizona State

USA Today: Redbox, vs. Washington

Not a lot of movement on the bowl front, as majority of outlets still have the Hawkeyes playing in the Holiday Bowl. You might’ve noticed that their opponent has changed, as I expected, with the Huskies losing 33-28 to my Utah Utes. Now a number of outlets are projecting them to play Arizona State, which would in essence be the ENO BOWL. Maybe Iowa could invite Chris White to be a guest of dishonor and force him to watch what our program missed out on?

Again, assuming those bowl rules are actually “rules,” Iowa cannot play in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Alternatively, if they’re “guidelines,” they could be heading back to Jacksonville to play Tennessee. In no way does that sound appealing. Between Jacksonville and Tennessee fans, the Nebraska fans of the South, I think I’d rather stay home. Or go to San Diego, where the Hawkeyes belong.


          

POLL PATROL: Iowa At #18 in AP/Coaches Polls

 Cache   

After a week with so many teams on bye (especially near the top of the polls), it's hardly surprising that there was very little movement in the Top 25 polls this week. But that just means that things are set up for some major games in November, starting this week, which features three ranked vs ranked matchups, headlined by #1 LSU vs #2 Alabama (or #1 Alabama vs #2 LSU, depending on your poll of choice). That and more in the Top 25s below... 

THE WEEK 11 AP POLL

RANK TEAM RECORD PTS
1 LSU (17) 8-0 1479
2 Alabama (21) 8-0 1472
3 Ohio State (17) 8-0 1467
4 Clemson (7) 9-0 1406
5 Penn State 8-0 1306
6 Georgia 7-1 1196
7 Oregon 8-1 1180
8 Utah 8-1 1090
9 Oklahoma 7-1 1045
10 Florida 7-2 938
11 Baylor 8-0 909
12 Auburn 7-2 901
13 Minnesota 8-0 831
14 Michigan 7-2 780
15 Notre Dame 6-2 571
16 Wisconsin 6-2 558
17 Cincinnati 7-1 527
18 Iowa 6-2 491
19 Memphis 8-1 448
20 Kansas State 6-2 364
21 Boise State 7-1 310
22 Wake Forest 7-1 296
23 SMU 8-1 250
24 San Diego State 7-1 87
25 Navy 7-1 83

As noted, not much movement in the Top 25 overall or at the top of the rankings. The top 5 remained unchanged and the big shift Georgia moving up from #8 to #6 and Florida moving down from #6 to #10 after the results of the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party game on Saturday. Oregon, Utah, and Oklahoma round out the Top 10.

Did you know that the SEC has the highest-ranked undefeated team in the AP Poll (LSU)? And the highest-ranked 1-loss team in the AP Poll (Georgia)? And the highest-ranked 2-loss team in the AP Poll (Florida)? And if you extended the rankings into the Others Receiving Votes category, they'd have the highest-ranked 3-loss team as well (Texas A&M)? Just an observation. 

Baylor has crept up to #11, just outside the Top 10, while the only other undefeated team in FBS is Minnesota, hanging back at #13, behind two 2-loss teams and four 1-loss squads. Now there's no question that Minnesota's schedule has been exceedingly soft so far this year and we'll know much more about them after this week's showdown with #5 Penn State. But at the same point in the season in 2015, Iowa was ranked #9 (and there were still 11 undefeated teams left at that point in 2015; Iowa wasn't the lowest-ranked among them, nor even the lowest-ranked P5 undefeated, as Oklahoma State was 8-0 and ranked #14 at that point). (At a similar point in the season the 2009 Iowa team was ranked #4, although that team had a road win over #5 Penn State on its resume, which was far better than anything on Minnesota's present resume.) We don't need to start liking Minnesota (eww) or think that they're better than they are, but if the tables were turned and Iowa was 8-0 with the same schedule that Minnesota's played and we were ranked #13, we'd probably be playing the DISRESPEKT card right, left, and center. Just food for thought.

Meanwhile, Iowa is actually ranked #18, having moved up a spot in the rankings after SMU's loss to Memphis. That's the second time this season that Iowa has moved up in the rankings despite not playing; once again, the winning move is simply not to play. Aforementioned SMU was the big faller this week, sinking from #15 to #23 after losing a shootout in Memphis on Saturday night. Memphis was the corresponding big gainer, jumping five spots from #24 to #19. And, finally, welcome to the polls, Navy! The Midshipmen are back in the Top 25 at #25. They're one of four American Athletic Conference teams in the Top 25 (along with #17 Cincinnati, #19 Memphis, and #23 SMU), which gives the AAC twice as many teams as the ACC. 

THE WEEK 11 COACHES POLL

RANK TEAM RECORD PTS
1 Alabama (37) 8-0 1591
2 LSU (11) 8-0 1531
3 Clemson (9) 9-0 1495
4 Ohio State (8) 8-0 1492
5 Penn State 8-0 1361
6 Georgia 7-1 1263
7 Oregon 8-1 1236
8 Oklahoma 7-1 1143
9 Utah 8-1 1111
10 Baylor 8-0 980
11 Florida 7-2 941
12 Auburn 7-2 914
13 Minnesota 8-0 880
14 Michigan 7-2 746
15 Notre Dame 6-2 660
16 Wisconsin 6-2 591
17 Cincinnati 7-1 549
18 Iowa 6-2 527
19 Memphis 8-1 418
20 Wake Forest 7-1 392
21 Boise State 7-1 388
22 Kansas State 6-2 265
23 SMU 8-1 235
24 San Diego State 7-1 105
25 Navy 7-1 92

The Coaches Poll has the same teams in the Top 9 as the AP, but in a slightly different order. They have Alabama ahead of LSU in the top two spots and Clemson ahead of Ohio State in the next two spots. They also have Oklahoma ahead of Utah at 8/9, while the AP has the reverse there. 

Most of the other differences between the AP and Coaches Poll this week are pretty minor as well. For the first time all season (I think) both polls each have the same group of 25 teams; they just have them ordered slightly differently. Iowa is again the #18 team here, though, two spots behind Wisconsin (this week's opponent) at #16. 

Per the computers, Iowa is #18 in the Massey composite rankings, #16 in the Sagarin ratings, #17 in the FPI rankings, and #21 in the SP+ rankings. (And, incidentally, the computers dislike Minnesota even more than the human pollsters do...)


          

Trini artist for Atlanta exhibition

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LA ANACAONA

 Cache   

La Anacaona es la avenida más cuidada de la capital…

Honra a la cacique aborigen taína que gobernó el Cacicazgo de Jaragua tras la muerte de su hermano Bohechio. 

Raro encuentra uno que esa avenida tan importante haya sido bautizada con su nombre, porque aquí las principales avenidas llevan nombres de extranjeros, como la George Washington, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Charles de Gaulle, Simón Bolivar, Rómulo Betancourt, la España, Nicolás de Ovando, etc. etc.

Tuvo suerte la india Anacaona con su avenida en la zona más exclusiva de la capital, bordeando el parque más importante de la ciudad. La única que tiene luces led intermitentes en sus señales de tránsito, como también medidores electrónicos de velocidad, aparte de ser la mejor iluminada de todas las vías. 

Claro está, en las torres de su alrededor viven los más grandes ricos del país, funcionarios del gobierno, diplomáticos, y no digo yo cuidar la vía, y acicalarla. 

Pero pienso que se le fue la mano a los que pretenden que se le quiten diez metros al parque Mirador Sur, para ampliarla y facilitar el tránsito. ¿Y es locos que están?, como dice Kinito Méndez en un merengue. Una de las mejores obras como espacio público que hizo Balaguer, y ahora algunos genios la quieren mutilar para agrandar más su avenida. ¡Ay Anacaona, areito de Anacaona!, como cantaba el salsero boricua Cheo Feliciano.

Gloria Estefan rechaza oferta para participar del espectáculo del Súper Bowl del 2020
Gloria Estefan rechazó la propuesta de Jay Z para participar en el espectáculo del Súper Bowl del 2020, donde ya está decidida la actuación de Jennifer López y Shakira.
Jay Z se comunicó con Emilio Estefan, el esposo de Gloria, quien es una importante figura del espectáculo en Miami, donde se llevará a cabo esta importante justa deportiva el próximo 2 de febrero. “Gloria me aseguró rápidamente que no pensaba asistir al súper bowl, que no quería hacerlo”, declaró Emilio al portal ET Online.


“Por favor, sería demasiado agobiante, y ya he pasado dos veces por ello, ¡Lo he hecho dos veces!, ¿Qué necesidad habría? Ya tiene dos artistas de primera y yo tuve la suerte de hacerlo dos veces, así que está todo bien” expresó Gloria.

Matt Damon dice que Tom Cruise “es el mejor” en su trabajo
El actor relató como Cruise realiza las escenas de acción que él nunca realizaría
Matt Damon cree que Tom Cruise es “el mejor” cuando se trata de dedicarse a su trabajo.
El actor de ‘Jason Bourne’ una vez recurrió a la estrella de ‘Misión: Imposible’ en busca de consejos para hacer acrobacias, pero decidió no escuchar los consejos de Tom cuando se dio cuenta de que prefería tomar el camino fácil, que seguir los consejos de Cruise para hacer las tomas más arriesgadas posibles.
Matt dijo: “Cené con Tom Cruise hace años. Lo arrinconé un poco y le dije: ‘Oye, cuéntame sobre esto (un truco que hizo) en las alturas. ¿Cómo hiciste esto?’ Y él dice: ‘Oh, ya sabes … He estado soñando con esta toma durante 15 años, esta secuencia, y finalmente tuve la oportunidad de hacerlo’. Y yo digo: ‘Entonces, ¿cómo sucedió?’ Y él dice: ‘OK, entonces voy con el chico de seguridad … el chico de seguridad dice: No puedes hacer eso. Eso es demasiado peligroso’. Y Tom me dice … ‘Así que por eso tengo otro chico de seguridad’ “.

“Y lo miré y pensé: ‘Tú ganas, eres el mejor’. Mi reacción sería: ‘Lástima que no podamos hacer esa secuencia, hubiera sido realmente genial’, mientras que él dice: ‘No, vamos a buscar otro tipo de seguridad para hacerla'”.

Los memes de Gonzalo Castillo
En las semanas finales de la precampaña para las primarias de octubre pasado las redes sociales fueron inundadas con cientos de memes de Gonzalo Castillo, casi todos dirigidos a criticar la profusión de su figura como omnipresente hasta llegar casi a odiarle.

Aparecía en los objetos más impensados, desde una lata de sopa de letras hasta la bacineta del inodoro, sin obviar que su imagen despuntaba el alba junto al Sol.

Todo esto sin olvidar que las redes sociales más populares (Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, entre otras) daban la medida de una hemorragia de mensajes sin final que provocaban, supuestamente, la repulsa de la mayoría del pueblo dominicano.

¿Y qué decir de los anuncios a través de la televisión y la radio? Se estima que por cada spot de Leonel Fernández se pautaron catorce de Castillo, y 22 por cada mensaje de Luis Abinader, recordando que en las primarias participaban los partidos de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD) y Revolucionario Moderno (PRM).

Además de las redes de incidencia pública, los grupos de whatsap fueron el escenario por donde los usuarios se dieron banquete difundiendo las metidas de pata del candidato del Gobierno, poniendo en evidencia las graves deficiencias conceptuales de que adolece, su falta de dominio de temas fundamentales, y su carencia casi absoluta de profundidad en todo lo que se presupone debe conocer un postulante presidencial.

Hasta ahí todo luce bien. Sin embargo, lo que muchos no saben es que esa lluvia de memes salía de la propia campaña de Castillo, destinada a conseguir el posicionamiento de una figura hasta entonces desconocida para más de la mitad de la población votante.

Mediante la ridiculización aparente de Castillo, su campaña logró que el desconocimiento del aspirante bajara a menos del 20% al día de las primarias, lo que puede considerarse un gran acierto, pues era poco probable que un candidato desconocido por la mitad de la población pudiera competir con alguna posibilidad de éxito.

Al alcanzar, mediante la saturación de mensajes, reducir porcentaje que sabía muy poco o nada del aspirante, al Gobierno le resultó más fácil completar el fraude que montó para impedir la victoria de Leonel.


¿En cuál escenario estamos ahora? Justamente en el mismo de antes de las primarias. Las redes han retomado el vendaval de memes presuntamente para ridiculizar al señor Castillo, y cientos de grupos de whatsapp han retomado la ruta de la ingenuidad—talvez por desconocimiento de los usuarios—y las “torpezas” del candidato de la cúpula peledeísta han entrado en la senda de los mensajes más difundidos, lo cual significa campaña gratis. No permitamos que Joao Santana, a través de su hijo, nos tome de tontos útiles.(Nelson Encarnación-El Caribe)

          

LA FARANDULA EN LA POLITICA

 Cache   
 El Sector Externo Ultramar Gonzalo 2020, coordinado por el doctor Yomare Polanco, comenzó a fortalecer la campaña presidencial  del candidato del PLD Gonzalo Castillo, con el lanzamiento del movimiento "El Presidente de la Camisa de las Mangas Cortas" presidido por la activista Jennifer Marchena.. El acto fue celebrado en el restaurant 809 de la calle Dyckman, en Manhattan, New York, con la participación de varios dirigentes del sector externo, quienes se sumaron a numerosos otros activistas comunicadores que hablaron a los asistentes.
Por su parte, Héctor Acosta "El Torito" instaló ya su Comando de Campaña en la ciudad de Bonao, desde donde dirige sus actividades en procura de convertirse en el próximo senador de la Provincia Monseñor Nouel. Vale decir que aparte del apoyo de su partido, el Partido Revolucionario Moderno, el Torito también cuenta con el respaldo de la Fuerza del Pueblo, el nuevo partido de Leonel Fernández, así como del BIS, de País Posible, y se espera además el apoyo de Guillermo Moreno y Eduardo Estrella. Es una maquinaria pesada, y engrasada, la que se está formando alrededor de la candidatura de Héctor Acosta como Senador.


          

ARTE NACIONAL

La Fiesta del Diablo
Las autoridades allanaron un lugar donde se iba a celebrar una fiesta denominada “Lucifer Party”, o sea “La Fiesta del Diablo”, que estaba siendo promovida por un grupo de jóvenes., bajo el alegato de que  no contaba con permiso y que "se iba a vender drogas" .

Aunque no estoy de acuerdo con ese tipo de celebraciones mefistofélicas, pienso que la prohibición no es más que una expresión de intolerancia  y que ello atenta contra la libertad religiosa, de conciencia y de cultos.

El exceso, pienso, no ha sido de los organizadores de la actividad, sino de las autoridades de la Dirección Nacional de Control de Drogas y la procuraduría de la República.
Eso de la "Lucifer Party" lo veo más bien como una chercha, y no como una verdadera vocación de fe e intención de rendirle culto a Satanás. 

Si alguien le está dando una verdadera promoción el Demonio, son las autoridades con ese tipo de acción tan exagerada y estrambótica, que se parece a las que en el pasado se adoptaban en contra de los grupos musicales de “heavy metal”, por alegadas iguales "razones diabólicas".

Nos imaginamos a los sectores religiosos ortodoxos que deben estar detrás de esa prohibición, que actúan sin parar mientes en que al Diablo hay que combatirlo con la prédica de la fe, y no tratando de “darle candela”.

Imagínese usted, dizque dándole candela al diablo para quemarlo…

Pero, por algo el Demonio es un ser “satanizado”. Nadie quiere saber del Diablo, y el que lo exalta debe ser llevado a la “hoguera”.

Fíjense que hasta en el gobierno de Hipólito Mejía hubo problemas con el Diablo, en el 2003, cuando unos locutores de Montecristi hicieron una encuesta que los llevó a la cárcel.

Se trataba también de una chercha, para ver quién sacaba más votos, si Hipólito o el diablo.

El Diablo ganó con 65 votos, y 35 para Hipólito.

Una encuesta en una emisora regional no pasó desapercibida para las autoridades. ¿Saben por qué? ¡Porque se trataba de el Diablo el que había ganado!.

Mandaron a buscar presos a los locutores, nada menos que ¡en un helicóptero!, para que se vea la importancia que esa vez, y ahora, se le da al Demonio.

¡Vaya usted a ver!

Y pensar que en este mundo de los vivos, hay gente ¡más mala que el Diablo!, y andan sueltos…

¿A cuánto asciende la fortuna de Walter Mercado y quién la heredará?
Si bien es cierto que hizo un imperio gracias a su conocimiento en astrología, la fortuna de Mercado nunca se desbordó. De acuerdo con cifras del sitio Celebrity Net Worth, el astrólogo tenía un patrimonio neto de $10 millones de dólares. Este número puede ser un poco mayor al sumar sus inversiones financieras y el valor de sus colecciones de arte.

En cuanto a los herederos, el Nuevo Día informó que  sus sobrinas Ivonne, Betty, Aida y Dannette Benet se encargarán del testamento. Otros familiares vivos son la hermana Aída “Cuca” Mercado, Carmen Mercado, María del Rosario Mercado y Henry Mercado Jr., todos hijos de Henry Mercado, hermano del astrólogo.

Las hermanas Benet son miembras del grupo Walter Mercado y se harán cargo de las entregas diarias del horóscopo. Ivonne informó que el astrólogo dejó hecho el Horóscopo Anual de 2020.

También hay que recordar que el astrólogo fue activo en la comunidad con obras de caridad y es posible que parte de su fortuna pueda ser donada.


Ivonne Benet ventiló la idea de abrir el museo de Walter Mercado en el futuro.

GUINNESS WORD RECORDS
República Dominicana, un país de Récord Guinness
República Dominicana se ha alzado en más de 10 ocasiones con el Guinness World Records. 

La última fue vivida la tarde de ayer domingo donde 427 parejas bailaron de manera uniformada y sincronizada merengue.

El país ha obtenido récord en deporte, música, bebida, lectura, carretera más peligrosa e incluso  presidente más antiguo de la historia.

Este último reconocimiento, del presidente más antiguo de la historia, fue obtenido por Joaquin Balaguer, quien dejó el cargo con 89 años.


David Maggiolo fue el primero en obtener el premio Guinness  en 1986 por su permanencia en el aire por más de 500 horas animando en vivo.  (Listín Diario)

          

EL PITAZO DE PITO

En el cumpleaños de Santiago “Pito” Acevedo en Coconut Club, de Bonao
Santiago “Pito” Acevedo no solo es el periodista de espectáculos más influyente de la provincia Monseñor Nouel, con sus programas de radio y de televisión en la región, sino también porque es una referencia en el ámbito internacional.

Con frecuencia viaja a Estados Unidos para participar como mariscal en desfiles, y en diversas actividades importantes, donde siempre se le tiene en mente, como la cara de la provincia, a nivel de comunicación.

Pero, es que Acevedo no piensa a nivel regional, y siempre por ello apunta a lo nacional e internacional.
  
Su programa “Salsa Latina”, de los domingos, organiza de manera regular una transmisión especial en exteriores, donde participan los principales exponentes del género, muchos de los  cuales viajan expresamente  a ese encuentro musical desde la capital, atendiendo al respeto y cariño que todos le tienen a Pito Acevedo.

También tiene el crédito de ser el cronista de arte, de todo el país, que celebra al más alto nivel su cumpleaños, verificable en las figuras que siempre le acompañan, y que van desde Johnny Ventura, Héctor Acosta, Raymond y Miguel, así como importantes bachateros y salseros del país.

Sergio Vargas, fue quien el pasado sábado amenizó la celebración del cumpleaños de Pito en Coconut Club, con lo más granado de la sociedad de Bonao, en un ambiente distendido donde hubo mucha alegría y amenidad.

Allí se disfrutó, se bailó y se compartió en grande,  con un derroche de atenciones y un ambiente fenomenal. Se botó y pitó fuerte, Pito Acevedo, en su cumpleaños.

Dominicana logra el “Récord pa’l merengue”
  •  El récord se logró con 422 parejas de baile
  •  En la Plaza España se reunieron miles de personas
422 parejas dominicanas bailaron al ritmo del “Merengón” en la Plaza España, en el Distrito Nacional, para superar el récord mundial certificado por el libro de Guinness World Record a la mayor cantidad de parejas bailando simultáneamente merengue, que pertenecía a Rusia desde el 2013 con 330 parejas.
Descalificaron 5 parejas
“El merengón”, un clásico de nuestro género, autoría de Joseíto Mateo, fue interpretado por los destacados merengueros Miriam Cruz, Elvis Crespo y Manny Cruz, en una nueva versión del nominado al Grammy Latino, Antonio González.
La adjudicadora descalificó a 5 parejas por no ajustarse a la coreografía.
Tres reglas confirmó la adjudicadora Natalia Ramírez de Guinness World Record que debían cumplir los dominicanos:
1. Bailar una canción de 5 minutos de duración
2. Las parejas debían estar uniformadas
3. Un máximo de 25 parejas debía estar ubicada con un supervisor experto en coreografía y cronología.

Faltando pocos minutos para las 6:00 de la tarde, las parejas ocupando las posiciones asignadas comenzaron a bailar. Destreza y sincronía demostraron los participantes que se trasladaron desde distintos puntos del país.(Texto de Diario Libre)

El Mayor "No estoy en chisme, soy el número uno” 
El exponente urbano Enmanuel Reyes, conocido como el Mayor "Clásico”, dice que no está en “chisme” con ningunos de sus colegas, y que lo de él es en estos momentos trabajar y sacar el género adelante.   

El Mayor se presentó en el espacio “Pégate y Gana con el Pachá” donde fue denominado como el "Michael Jackson del Dembow”, apodo que dejó a Reyes encantado y dice de ahora en adelante lo usará. 

"No, no, no estamos en eso... estoy rankeado y ando en un Ferrari vacanísimo ahí afuera, normal. Tengo que decirlo Pachá. Esos tigueres están bien, lo que te estoy diciendo es que no ando en chisme, que no ando en eso y que ando en un Ferrari durísimo en calle, no estoy en chisme con nadie", insistió. 

Explicó que lo de él es grabar música, y que, gracias a Dios, su público se encuentra en la posición número uno con los temas: “Piloneando” y “Chiquito”. 

Durante la presentación de El Mayor, la esposa del canciller de la República Angelita García de Vargas, aprovechó el momento para demostrar sus habilidades de bailarina y a ritmo de dembow dio catedra de baile junto a Frederick Martínez (el Pachá).  
   

Pégate y Gana con el Pachá, quien arriba en el mes de diciembre a su octavo aniversario, se transmite los sábados por Color Visión (canal 9) para todo el territorio dominicano, mientras, que para la Unión Americana llega por la señal de Televisión Dominicana en horario de 12 a 4 de la tarde.

Woman impaled by metal bar that fell off truck

 Cache   
A woman in California is recovering after being impaled in the leg by a large metal bar that fell off a big truck while traveling on the highway, according to officials.

The unnamed victim was riding in a car on Highway 99 in Sacramento on Saturday, when the metal bar fell off of the truck in front of them, authorities said.

"The metal bar then bounced up and entered the right front of the Chevy, traveled through the engine compartment and entered the passenger compartment of the Chevy and impaled the right leg of the right front passenger," the California Highway Patrol's South Sacramento division said in a statement.

The driver was able to pull off the road safely and call 911. First responders freed the woman from the car and she was transported to a local hospital, where she is in stable condition.

CHP says the truck did not stop after the metal bar fell off, and authorities are seeking any information in the case.

Last month in Georgia, a driver made it out alive after he rear-ended a log truck and the logs pierced his car from the front windshield to the back window.

Patterns of head shape and scutellation in Drymarchon couperi (Squamata: Colubridae) reveal a single species

 Cache   

Krysko et al. (2016a) used analyses of DNA sequence data to reveal two genetic lineages of Drymarchon couperi. The Atlantic lineage contained specimens from southeastern Georgia and eastern peninsular Florida, and the Gulf Coast lineage contained specimens from western and southern peninsular Florida as well as western Florida, southern Alabama, and southern Mississippi. In a second paper Krysko et al. (2016b) analyzed morphological variation of the two lineages, which allowed them to restrict D. couperi to the Atlantic lineage and to describe the Gulf Coast lineage as a new species, Drymarchon kolpobasileus. This taxonomic discovery was remarkable for such a large, wide-ranging species and was notable for its impact on conservation. Because of population declines, particularly in western Florida, southern Alabama, and southern Mississippi, D. couperi (sensu lato) was listed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act (United States Fish and Wildlife Service 1978, 2008) and repatriation of the species to areas where it had been extirpated was listed as a priority conservation goal (United States Fish and Wildlife Service 1982, 2008). Such repatriation efforts were attempted in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, starting in 1977 (Speake et al. 1987), but failed to create viable populations, likely because too few snakes were released at too many sites (Guyer et al. 2019; Folt et al. 2019a). A second attempt at repatriation was started in 2010 and concentrated on release of snakes at a single site in Alabama (Stiles et al. 2013). However, Krysko et al. (2016a) criticized this repatriation effort because it appeared to involve release of D. couperi (sensu stricto) into the geographic region occupied by D. kolpobasileus (as diagnosed in Krysko et al. 2016b).

Ramblings

 Cache   


I'm just wandering around in my mind because I don't feel like getting organized, so here are my rambles:

My two daughters and I went to Ireland, had a great time, saw the usual places and some new ones.  

I learned the value of really good car rental insurance.  I have no problem driving on the left side of the road while seated on the right side of the car, and oddly enough, I am a champ at parallel parking.  I DO have a problem with tiny parking spaces in parking garages, and I scrubbed the left front of the rental car on a concrete post in a garage in Galway.  There were two narrow spaces between two large posts and that's where I had the problem; when I returned the car, no problem.  Phew.  Also, the car was a Toyota hybrid, which I think means a Prius, and I loved it.  Used not a lot of gas for a lot of driving.



We found the church in Garvagh where my paternal grandmother was baptized in 1881. She moved to the US in 1905 and died here in 1953.  I only met her once and I was not even five yet so I only vaguely remember her.  I have tried without success to get her birth certificate but I just found my grandfather's bc and it is on its way to me.  If I can get his death certificate, I can apply for Irish citizenship.  

Isn't it pretty!

I need my grandfather's social security number to apply for his death certificate, and I have no idea if he even had one, and if he did, how to find it.  More research ahead.  I have no idea why I would want an Irish passport, or what I would do with it.  But I'm stubborn enough to think that if I CAN have one, I SHOULD have one.  


We had fish and chips, of course, several times. And, of course, Irish stew, and of course, Guinness.  Or at least, I did.  

Because one of my daughters had been to Ireland before, and I had been there twice before, some destinations were a repeat for one or both of us, but everything was a first for older daughter.  A special treat for all of us was Newgrange.  




It was built in about 3200 BC and is an example of very early genius engineering.  It's quite small inside and the ceiling is amazing---slabs of rocks arranged and stacked to form a dome, and the builders knew to slightly tilt the rock towards the outside of the structure so that rain would not get inside---and it hasn't in all these centuries.  Soil is mounded up over the rock portion so it looks much larger than the inside actually is.  Archaeologists aren't sure what the structure was used for, but during winter solstice, at sunrise, light comes inside through the window above the doorway and lights up the path to the center of the round space where we gathered, only fifteen of us at a time.  


In Galway I bought another cabled sweater.  What Georgia resident doesn't need even more wool clothing?


And speaking of knitting, since I returned home, I have finished two more projects:

A second Cowboys and Angels


And another pair of socks.  (Magpie yarn)




And now, for something completely different, this explains where ghosts come from, but now that Halloween is over and the ghosts are gone, we are still left with the struggle to put duvets inside their covers.  I've gotten smart and let my husband do it.  He has come up with a technique that involves turning the cover inside out and then doing something that involves hanging the whole thing over the stairway railing.  I have not bothered to learn this technique.  



And speaking of Halloween, sort of, this is what is left of a bag of 90 assorted candies.  I had never heard of Starburst so I tried one.  The pieces look like bubble gum, but, SURPRISE, they aren't.  I'm not sure what they are; they aren't particularly sweet and I couldn't discern a flavor.  Sorry kids, but I'm sure you got some M&Ms, Twix and Three Musketeers I gave out in each handful of candy.


And, that's probably enough rambling for now. 

Thanks for reading, especially if you made it to the end.  

Slán.

3rd Annual Macy's Salutes Our Military Fashion Show

 Cache   
AWC > Fort Bragg > 3rd Annual Macy's Salutes Our Military Fashion Show

(L to R) Val, Stephanie, Dayna, LT
 Clark, LT Clark, CourtneyY

First and foremost, I would like to give a big thank you to Macy's for giving us the opportunity to participate in this event! It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget! I would also like to thank Jennifer Stewart, the founder of Army Wives Club for giving me the opportunity to do this!


A few months ago, Jennifer announced  this awesome opportunity! There was a lot of work and preparation that went into making this event happen.  First, we had our fitting. Oh dear heavens! Lets start with a little background about myself.  First and foremost, I am a mom.  Over the years, I have lost my style.  Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week I dedicate myself to my daughter and my husband.  I am a homemaker! Fashion has never been my high point, and most of the time you can find me wearing yoga pants and some sort of t-shirt, tank top, or whatever is most accessible at the time.  Most of the time, my hair is up in a pony tail or a bun, and if I have makeup on it's not glamorous.


On Friday, I went for my fitting for the show.  I was scared to death! I felt like a fish out of water and almost immediately I felt my anxiety setting in. I can't tell you how many times I almost went home! I often asked myself, "What in the world did I get myself into?".  What they selected for me to model wasn't something you'd find me wearing in my daily life.   I have always been a bigger girl and I have always had a confidence about myself.  It wasn't until I tried on these clothes that I felt were wrong for me, that I felt self conscious!  This was a battle I had with myself, the attendants assisting were wonderful and very assuring that I looked GREAT!

On Saturday, I showed up for the event.  I was greeted by the same friendly faces that I saw yesterday, which was a big relief! I needed these girls, this stuff was CONFUSING! I had my makeup done by Estee Lauder, which was wonderful! Then, we each had 4 showcases.  ACES, we called it.  Alfani, Calvin Klein Seperates, Evening Wear and Shoes.  This was the order that we were wearing these items.  Thank goodness for Stephanie Ensor, and her great acronym.  During the show, it was very fast paced, quickly going from one look, right into another.  It was hectic, but I feel like that is one part of this unpredictable world we live in. We were all feeling a little nervous and most definitely out of our element.  However, we all felt as if this was a good opportunity for us all to enjoy ourselves and have the spotlight on us.  The event was wonderful and all of us models had a wonderful time together.  We all had a bond.  We were all either spouses or U.S Army Veterans.


(L to R) Val, Dayna, Stephanie
LT Clark & LT Clark ;)
I would like to thank the entire Macy's staff here in Fayetteville for putting this event on and for their wonderful input on our individual styles.  I would also like to thank the other participants Stephanie, Dayna, Valerie and Lt. Clark and her husband for being supportive and keeping it together.  The support and encouragement that each gave made it even more of a wonderful experience.  It isn't very often that I get to treat myself, kick back and really enjoy myself.  As a homemaker, I devote my time to my family and I am 100% ok with that.  As an Army spouse, I take pride it the role that I play everyday in making my family function.  I take pride in what my husband does everyday, and there is no better recognition that I need then making sure that my family is healthy and happy.  Today was a special day.  A day I will never forget!

I would also like to take the time to thank all of our Veterans and our Military for their service to our country.  You are greatly appreciated!  I also would like to thank all of our spouses who stand by their men and women!  We appreciate you too!

The Lt. Dan Band comes to Fayetteville, NC!

 Cache   
AWC > Fort Bragg > The Lt. Dan Band come to Fayetteville, NC

Gary Sinise(pictured right)


On Friday, September, 13, my husband and I had the opportunity to see the AMAZING Lt. Dan Band.  We bought VIP tickets to the concert because this concert was special.  It was a benefit concert for 2 American Heroes, MSG John Masson (Army) and SSGT Thomas McRea (Marines).  It was also a wonderful opportunity for my husband and me to have a date night.





advertisement

These 2 heroes were both injured in Afghanistan and both suffered catastrophic injuries from IED's.  MSG Masson is a triple amputee and SSGT McRea is also triple amputee but also suffered a TBI, and also eye injuries.  This concert was a very rare opportunity for me, and was such an amazing experience to be a part of.  This concert was a benefit concert to raise money for these heroes to receive smart homes.

My view 
The Lt. Dan Band is a unique band of sorts, they are a cover band that plays a variety of songs.  If you have ever seen the movie Forest Gump, then you will know the bands bass player, and front runner, Gary Sinise.  He is behind the Gary Sinise Foundation, a foundation that honors our nations Veterans, First Responders, their families and those in need.  He travels around the world, playing concerts for the military community to raise money for his foundation and foundations they supports, in this case the Tunnel to Tower Foundation.

The Lt. Dan Band
As an Army spouse this concert was humbling, it made my proud to be the wife of an American hero, not just that day but everyday.  These men fought for their country, were severely wounded and my feeling was the least that i could do was to give back to a fellow comrade of my husband despite not knowing either man.  It was inspiring to see our community rise up and raise money for our own, and make sure that their sacrifices are and never will be forgotten.  What was most inspiring was to see how humbled and grateful these men were, both not recognizing themselves as heroes.  The concert featured a night jump by an all veterans skydive team, an auction featuring paintings and 2 Gibson Guitars signed by Gary Sinise.  The crowed raised $12,000 in the auction, with all the money going towards these heroes homes!

It is my hope that these men get the homes that they deserve, and that they know that they are heroes every single day! If you haven't had the opportunity to see the Lt. Dan Band, check out this website here.  If you ever happen to get the opportunity to check out his band, all the proceeds got 100% to the organization that he is supporting that evening, usually someone local.  It is such a gratifying feeling to help someone in need, especially an American Hero.

Some links to check out!

Reintegration: The Road Back After Korea - Part 1 - The Beginning

 Cache   
AWC > Military Life > Reintegration:  The Road Back After Korea

As most or all of you know, my husband spent the last year at Camp Hovey in South Korea.  As most people would be, I was so excited for my husband's homecoming that I forgot, that one of hardest part was yet to come.

A hardship tour is a lot different from a deployment in a lot of respects because during deployment there are reintegration meetings and FRG's are there to assist you with anything that you might need right before a deployment ends.  However, during a hardship tour you don't have any of that.

advertisement

 I personally don't have any friends who's husbands have went away on a hardship tour during their marriage.  This was all new territory for me, and I spent most of the time he was gone feeling alone and misguided.  If there are Army programs available to assist spouses during a hardship tour I have yet to hear about it.  I have been through a deployment with my husband back in 2008 when he deployed to Iraq.  I was not a spouse yet, so I didn't have a lot of Army experience nor did the Army even care that I existed.

The last couple of months before the tour ended, I did a lot of preparing mentally but I also began to get the house super organized in preparation for his arrival.  All of this was new to me because my husband was only home with my daughter and I for 11 days before he left.  Having a baby is always an adjustment, but we did a lot of adjusting in the first month of her life.  Over the year, I set a routine and had it down with just Madison and I.  Now I had to think about where my husband fits into all of this, and how to make him part of our family, again.  Thankfully, I have a resilient daughter who blows my mind with every milestone and never ceases to amaze me when it comes to her ability to adjust. Thankfully, that took a lot pressure and stress off my shoulders.  My husbands homecoming was perfect and the first week was honeymoon like, of course.  Then the anxiety, pressure and confusion came, not to mention housework, laundry, dishes... you name it for 3 people.  I never could believe how adding just one more person complicates your routine.

I had a terrible time adjusting to the newness of all of it, in addition to having PPD.  It was the first time, on a permanent basis that we would be a family under one roof.  Where is my husband supposed to fit in our "life"? How is everything going to play out??  These are all questions that I still ask myself to this day!  I do not know what the answer is when it comes to reintegrating from a hardship tour, but I do know that patience, understanding and faith largely come into play.

If you have questions about my hardship tour and the experiences I had, feel free to follow me on twitter-- @CourtneyAWC.  If you have had any experiences with a hardship tour, please feel free to pass on any tools that you used, so that in the future these resources can be available to other spouses!

As it aims for sustainability in energy production and storage, its strong investment in R&D has put it at the cutting edge of battery solutions in the steady transition to a decarbonized energy sector.

    “We were delighted to welcome Sven Simon MEP to our facilities in Büdingen,” said Karsten Kurz, Director Environmental Affairs, Europe, at Exide Technologies. “We spoke about high-quality manufacturing jobs, growth opportunities in the battery market, and the ability for battery technology to bring stability to energy markets and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.”

    “I was pleased to visit the Exide plant, and find out more about the advanced manufacturing activities taking place in Büdingen. It is great to see a global business like Exide taking advantage of the skilled workforce in the region,” said Sven Simon. “We discussed trends and concerns in the industry, battery recycling best practices, opportunities for growth, and the importance of environmentally sound energy-storage solutions.”

    The Case of the Nightmare Person

     Cache   

    Today I bring you, with all due fanfare, another casualty of the therapy culture. I am not saying that the woman who is writing to our least favorite advice columnist Ask Polly is undergoing therapy. I am remarking that she is a true believer, someone who has absorbed therapy culture values, to the point where she moons over each and every Ask Polly column.

    Her adoring adulation of Polly has turned her into what she calls a nightmare. Others would call her a train wreck. It is difficult to judge because she offers very little information about her real life.  Apparently, he was brought up by a single mother who worked a graveyard shift at the post office. She was married and divorced her husband. She left him, but that is all that she is willing to share. She is in her thirties. We do not know what she does for a living. We do not know about her relations with her mother, assuming that she has no other family. We do not know where she lives or who comprises her circle of friends.

    But, she has adopted Polly’s usual nostrum: she feels he feelings. She is so thoroughly involved with her feelings that she does not know how to interact with other people. She wants to be more vulnerable because thinks that this will cause other people to flock to her, to love her. She does not realize that this might make them feel sorry for her... and thus to avoid. She has no sense whatever of what constitutes normal social interactions, so we imagine that she does not have any normal social interactions. She is wrapped up in herself, full of herself, wallowing in her feelings and imagining, because Polly told her, that she needs merely to be more vulnerable.

    It’s a pathetic story, but sadly it offers a good picture of what happens to people who take the culture’s psychobabble seriously.

    Here is the letter:

    There’s this part of me that is pretty convinced I’m a nightmare person. Actually, I mostly like myself — a lot more now than I used to. But I’m terrified of vulnerability. I have this friend who is really good at just expressing her desires, and she’s so open with people and authentic and cool. I wish I could be more open like that. For example, I often try to give people the impression that I don’t need them, because admitting I do feels extremely uncomfortable.

    I also left my husband when I was 28, and it was incredibly sad. I have some shame about that. We’re still friends, and I think we both feel incredibly lucky to still have each other as we navigate this bizarre new single life in our 30s. He’s a good guy. It’s a long story.

    I have been asking the universe lately to just open my heart wider and wider, and some days it does feel like that’s happening. But I’m always comparing myself to others — seeking to be as cool as them, or part of a special community in some way (that’s a remnant from an isolated upbringing with a single mom who worked the graveyard shift at the post office).

    I want to be okay taking up space and asking for help, while also being grounded in myself. What if I’m the type of person who doesn’t appreciate others and always wants more? That’s terrifying.

    Also, I tell white lies often. They’re usually not premeditated and I tell them in circumstances when I want the other person to think that I am very interesting, happy, and sociable, with lots of friends, and that I don’t need anything from them personally. 

    Sometimes I genuinely feel like I’m all these things and other times I feel like I’m isolating myself out of fear of being rejected if I’m just me, or fear of making other people uncomfortable with my needs. I think I’m okay at feeling my feelings, but I still feel like I’m doing something totally wrong.

    I’m sorry this was so long. I think I’m hoping you can help me understand how to be more vulnerable, and also whether I should be harder or easier on myself? I don’t know.

    I love your writing and I often print out the letters and your responses and read them at night. Thanks for everything you do.

    Why Is Vulnerability So Goddamn Hard?

    The last thing she needs is more vulnerability. Polly is going to tell her to try to figure out why she feels ashamed. Polly will also tell her that she is suffering because she cannot feel love. It's pretty much what Polly tells all those who write to her. 

    We find it curious that this woman is asking the universe to open her heart wider. She would do better to attend religious services and to ask God.

    Since the letter writer, by Polly's lights, cannot feel love, she cannot feel the love that anyone is offering to her. This is mental drool. Polly closes this thought with an explanation for why the woman left her husband. If you read the letter you will see that no reason is given.

    You’ve been tricked into taking your own shame too seriously. So every time you ask for something, you’re immediately sure that you’re an asshole who’s overstepping her rights. This situation is exacerbated by the fact that you have, in fact, acted exactly like an asshole who’s overstepping her rights in the past. Why? Because you couldn’t feel love. You didn’t love yourself, so it was impossible to value the love you had or the people who gave it to you. You left your husband because you didn’t value yourself or him. You couldn’t feel any of it.

    Yes, but the letter writer says that she feels her feelings, and that she is doing just what Polly recommends to all the letter writers who are dumb enough to ask her for advice.

    Obviously, this woman should stop reading Polly’s columns and should stop thinking that vulnerability will make her more loving. As for Polly’s advice, here’s a bit more of it:

    When you grow up isolated from others, it’s very hard not to spend your life craving connection to the point where it makes you anxious and depressed. But you also seem to believe (as I did) that this need for connection makes you unattractive and unlovable. So you try to hide your needs and hide your genuine self. Hiding makes it much harder to connect with other people. You also have trouble trusting people who aren’t hiding at all. You can admire them and sometimes even lean on them — like with your friend and your ex-husband — but you still crave a love that’s “better” than the love they have to offer. You crave love from people who don’t want to give you love at all. Somehow, people who don’t care enough about you are the ultimate prize. They are the least full of shit people, in your estimation, because they’re “strong” enough to hide their emotions. (You can consciously admire people who are open and still subconsciously privilege those who aren’t.) You imagine that if you ever win love from a “strong” withholding person like this (by lying and hiding your weaknesses, of course), it will at least feel real. It will feel like love from an isolated, overworked mother who only loves you conditionally — when you’re good, when you’re quiet, when you don’t ask too much. It will feel like love from someone with high standards — someone who sees through the full-of-shit natives and their cheerful, loving exteriors. Someone who sees through you (a nightmare person).

    Obviously, the solution is not that she cannot express her feelings. The solution lies in the fact that she seems not to know how to function in society, how to conduct relationships, how to follow social codes. One suspects that she has landed in a game that she does not understand. She does not know how it is played. She does not know her role. She does not know the rules. So, she retreats into her shell and thinks that if she can speak a universal language, the language of feeling, that all will be well.

    In truth, she should learn how to socialize. She should take up a hobby, like going on hikes in the woods. She should learn better manners. She should practice propriety and engage in more formal gestures of caring. If she wants other people to like her, she should show that she likes them, by making simple and gracious gestures. 

    As the old Biblical saying goes, she should do unto others as she would have others do unto her. Admittedly the saying can be interpreted in many ways, but, for today, it means that when you are scared to interact with other people you should show your good feelings by doing a kind deed, not by whining in your soup about why you are not lovable.


              

    The View from Riyhadh

     Cache   

    Surely, the story is monumentally important. It’s so important that our news media have largely ignored it. 

    Happily, Karen Elliott House has traveled to Saudi Arabia to witness the cultural transformation taking place in the kingdom. We recall the bright eyed New York Times columnists who camped out in Tahrir Square to welcome democracy to Egypt—how did that one work out?—so we ought at least to give passing mention to the one place where Islam is being modernized, rapidly.

    Considering how many of the world’s problems derive from the fact that one of its major religions has failed to modernize, we ought to pay some attention to what is happening in Saudi Arabia. Surely, we prefer the course taken by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to that proposed by the reactionary forces running the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    And yes, I know, Jamal Khashoggi was most likely murdered by people who are very close to the crown prince. Unfortunately, we do not choose our allies on the basis of a moral purity test. How does it happen that everyone is up in arms about Khashoggi and no one cares about the thousands of people who have been executed in Iran for crimes like…homosexual behavior.

    As for life on the ground, House offers this sense of the public mood:

    During a three-week visit, the public delight is visible everywhere from the capital city to remote rural provinces like Jizan in the south and Tabuk in the north. Teenage Saudi girls scream hysterically at a performance here by the Korean boy band BTS. Young Saudi women with bared faces run a 5K through city streets clad only in short-sleeved T-shirts and tight leggings. Groups of young men and women relax together in Starbucks. Hotels are no longer permitted to ask Saudi couples for proof of marriage at check-in. All this change and more in a society where until very recently women, uniformly clad in floor-length abayas, couldn’t exercise, drive or appear in public with men other than close relatives.

    House believes that the nation is anticipating the day when it will no longer be able to rely on oil revenue. She suggests that it is modernizing in order to attract tourism and investments, but I suspect that there is a larger and more profound reason. The crown prince, whatever his faults, has correctly decided that Islam needs to be part of the modern world. It cannot stand apart and watch other cultures surpass it.

    House continues:

    This most puritanical of Islamic societies is increasingly mirroring Western mores as the government seeks to attract foreign tourists and investors whose money is needed to diversify the kingdom’s oil-dependent economy.

    The regime no longer worries about the erosion of the kingdom’s distinctive culture. Its view is that in a world of ubiquitous social media all cultures are destined to blend and it is no longer feasible, let alone desirable, for Saudi Arabia to shut itself off from inexorable global trends.

    As it happens, the kingdom does not allow dissenting opinions. It does not have first amendment rights to free speech and free expression. Naturally, this offends us to the marrow. And yet, do you believe that change would have been possible if the religious police had been allowed to constitute a countervailing faction:

    There is no doubt that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 34, effective ruler of the kingdom, has decided to press ahead full speed with economic and social change (the former much tougher than the latter). Nothing will deter him. The crown prince, those close to him say, is absolutely convinced his reforms are essential and urgent. So in his view, debate is pointless. There is no possibility of reversing course—and no apparent concern about a conservative backlash. The once-powerful religious authorities have been reduced to mouthpieces for the regime and are widely ignored by the public. Even immediate foreign threats are more distraction than deterrent to Crown Prince Mohammed’s domestic agenda.

    To be clear, such rapid change is difficult to impose, even when one can exercise authoritarian control over the culture. Attitudes and social habits change more slowly:

    The government is spending billions on bringing entertainment—wrestling, tennis, car racing, expensive restaurants, musical performers—to the kingdom to jump-start tourism. Joining a Saudi family for dinner, I am driven by golf cart through a park to the restaurant by a young Saudi woman with a bare face, cropped hair and no abaya. Such dress or employment for a Saudi woman was unthinkable even a few months ago. “I feel out of place in my own country,” says one Saudi woman in shock at seeing a Lebanese singer entering a Riyadh hotel in a sleeveless midthigh dress. Such “indecency,” unlike dissent, runs no risk these days.

    Given its neighborhood the Saudi government requires American assistance. It needs a reliable ally in Washington, especially since Western European nations want to align themselves with Iran. Some say that we should completely withdraw from the region, but we are also part of the world oil market. It’s nice to be self-sufficient energy wise, but what happens if our vendors, suppliers and customers run out of fuel.

    Meantime, the Saudi government is putting maximum pressure on the U.S. to provide additional military support to the regime. Failure to stand visibly with Saudi Arabia, say officials here, could encourage Iran to strike again and lead to higher oil prices for the U.S. and world-wide. Or the Saudis could opt to price oil in a currency other than the dollar, with severe ramifications for the U.S. and the global economy.

    Crown Prince Mohammed is said to have been livid about the slow U.S. reaction but mollified by the Trump administration’s recent decision to dispatch 2,000 additional American troops to Saudi Arabia along with two Patriot missile batteries and a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, or Thaad. The American buildup looks intended to deter future Iranian aggression, but whether the Trump administration would engage or duck is anyone’s guess given the lack of a formal U.S.-Saudi mutual-security treaty. The Saudis are understandably nervous after President Obama failed to enforce his “red line” in Syria and President Trump made no response to Iran’s downing of an American drone in June or its attack on Aramco six weeks ago.

    The Trump administration seems to have come to this understanding. If it does not support the Saudi reform effort, the chances for backsliding will increase exponentially.


              

    Decriminalizing Crime

     Cache   

    Crime statistics are an embarrassment. Minority groups commit more crimes per capita than others. Members of these groups are rightly embarrassed by the statistics, but their solution seems most often to be to blame someone else, like white police officers.

    Even the ascendancy of Barack Obama did not seem to make a dent in the crime statistics. Obama’s home town, run by a mayor who had been Obama’s chief of staff, kept racking up unacceptably large murder rates. Again, it was an embarrassment. The nation has been told to look away and to blame white people, especially white racists and white supremacists.

    By what is acceptable reason, we are not permitted to suggest that the people who commit the crimes ought not to be committing the crimes and that their communities ought not to be defending them or exonerating them… because the fault lies with white police officers.

    One alternative might be to decriminalize crime. By the logic of the radical left crime must be a social construction. If we decriminalize certain criminal behaviors there will be less crime. Problem solved, sort of.

    Victor Davis Hanson explained how it’s working in California:

    Stores are occasionally hit by swarming looters. Such Wild West criminals know how to keep their thefts under $950, ensuring that such “misdemeanors” do not warrant police attention. California’s permissive laws have decriminalized thefts and break-ins. The result is that San Francisco now has the highest property crime rate per capita in the nation.

    Mission accomplished.

    If that does not suit your intellectual predilections, the Washington Post has just run a series of articles about how bad prison is. The ostensible purpose of these articles, written by people who have suffered incarceration, is to empty the prisons. The reasoning behind them: people who are in prison have mental health issues. And that prison is not very good therapy. If not, prisoner are the victims of capitalist patriarchy and are simply revolting against their oppressors.

    Notable scofflaw Piper Kerman, the mind behind the television show, Orange is the New Black, explains it all in her lead article. Paul Mirengoff reports on it for Powerline blog (via Maggie’s Farm):

    Kerman complains that “the American criminal justice system does not solve the problems — violence, mental illness, addiction — that it claims to address.”

    And also:

    Kerman’s article is a smorgasbord of leftist cliches. She claims, for example, that “mass incarceration is a result of policies that have grown out of a history of slavery, colonialism, and punishment of the poor.”

    To which Mirengoff responds:

    If slavery, colonialism, and punishment of the poor were to blame for incarceration, we should see less, not more, incarceration as time takes us further and further away from this history. But that’s not what we see.

    Thus is blame shifted from the criminals to the society at large. The fault, by leftist ideology, lies with a criminal Western culture that has exploited and oppressed peoples for ages now. Those who hold these views are saying that criminal behavior is the natural and normal response of oppressed peoples toward their oppressors. If not, it is a function of mental health problems that the nation is refusing to treat.

    Meringoff remarks that Kerman and the Washington Post have misunderstood the purpose of prison:

    The primary purposes of the system are to punish criminals and prevent them from committing crimes. It achieves these objectives, at least while the criminal is incarcerated. Longer sentences would prevent criminals from committing crimes for longer periods. But this, of course, is not what Kerman has in mind.

    By incapacitating criminals, the justice system reduces violence. Violent crime plummeted following the harsher federal sentencing regime adopted towards the end of the last century. This isn’t the same thing as “solving” violence, but that’s not a realistic goal of a criminal justice system.

    In effect, the solution offered by Kerman and the Post is the problem. When communities do not hold criminals accountable, when they do not shun those who cause the communities to fall into disrepute, you get more crime. Effectively, the article decriminalizes crime. It will naturally produce more crime. We should shut up and suffer it because we all deserve it.

    Meringoff explains:

    If anything here is being “normalized” here it’s crime, not incarceration. Advocates like Kerman (and those like the Washington Post who give them a platform) treat criminal behavior as a normal and natural response to slavery, colonialism, imbalances in power, etc.

    Accepting this notion will lead to rampant crime in excess even of the crime wave of the 1970s that led to the stiff sentencing regime in place until recently. It will eat away at the fabric of our society — a fate that radicals like Kerman may consider the just dessert of a “racist” and “colonialist” nation like America.

              

    New York: A City of Herbivores

     Cache   
    We understand why President Trump has changed his permanent residence from New York to Florida. It isn’t just the tax situation, though that certainly played a part. It must have a great deal to do with security. If you cannot walk the streets of the city without fearing an assault, if you fear for the safety of your wife and young son, it’s time to pull up roots. Even if you are not assaulted, you will be subjected to sneers, nasty looks, insulting remarks and other forms of raw prejudice. In the end, it’s about the appallingly bad manners of New Yorkers. 

    It might be about the diversity. With a multitude of cultures you get a cacophonous multitude of manners. So you never know how or what to do to signal your membership in a group. 

    Then again, perhaps it’s about food? Perhaps it’s about New Yorkers’ expressed preferences for Thanksgiving dinner. Over at the New York Post columnist Lauren Steussy explains that the last straw for her was a poll showing that New Yorkers favorite Thanksgiving food was… salad.

    A city of herbivores… how pathetic can you get?

    Steussy writes:

    President Donald Trump had the right idea, getting out of this wasteland.

    But it’s not the political leaders, or the high rent, or the dysfunctional MTA, or the summer trash vapors or winter slush that have me headed straight for the Lincoln Tunnel like a bat out of hell.

    It’s the fact that New Yorkers’ preferred Thanksgiving dish is a heaping, fibrous, cold pile of salad.

    A new House Method survey of Google searches broken down by state has revealed this dark truth. It found that salad, more than any other savory dish, is the most popular Thanksgiving meal among New Yorkers — not turkey, not mashed potatoes, not the yams with the marshmallows toasted on top, not even Brussels sprouts, which, admittedly, are salad-adjacent, but certainly not some disastrous bowl of arugula tossed with pathetic vinaigrette.

    Vegans and vegetarians unite against the upcoming holocaust of turkeys. They are soon going to have a Save the Turkeys event. They will occupy turkey farms to stop the slaughter. And they will sit down to their Thanksgiving feast and demonstrate how virtuous they are by munching on the radicchio. 

    They seem not to have noticed that turkeys are a renewable food source.
              

    The Impeachment Follies

     Cache   
    For your edification, a few thoughts about the impeachment process from emeritus Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. As you know, Dershowitz is one of the few liberals and progressives who have not lost their minds over Trump. He has consistently demonstrated integrity, in calling them as he see them… and as the law requires.

    In a recent essay he remarks that the founders of the American republic did not want impeachment to become a partisan political event, a way for one party to punish or to hobble a president from another party. 

    Hamilton warned of the “greatest danger” that the decision to move forward with impeachment will “be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” He worried that the tools of impeachment would be wielded by the “most cunning or most numerous factions” and lack the “requisite neutrality toward those whose conduct would be the subject of scrutiny.”

    He continues:

    Impeachment is an extraordinary tool to be used only when the constitutional criteria are met. These criteria are limited and include only “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Hamilton described these as being “of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

    Hamilton distinctly distinguished between the nature of the constitutional crimes, denoting them as political, while insisting that the process for impeachment and removal must remain scrupulously neutral and nonpartisan among members of Congress.

    And yet, Congressional Democrats do not care about anything but their fanatical will to destroy Trump. They are conducting a dishonest secretive probe, one that will lead to a partisan vote to impeach. They must know that the senate will never vote to remove... so they are engaging in a grand theatrical performance, largely because the idiots in their caucus do not know how to do anything but to create drama:

    It is far more likely that, no matter how extensive the investigation is and regardless of what it uncovers, nearly all House Democrats will vote for impeachment and nearly all House Republicans will vote against it. Such a partisan vote would deny constitutional legitimacy to impeachment. 

    Strangely, the Democratic Party wants to remove the duly elected president in the name of democracy. The House of Representatives is the only body that truly reflects the will of the majority. And yet, James Madison did not want the nation to be a democracy. He specifically argued that the nation should be a republic, where the will of the majority of the people should be checked and balanced by other branches of government. 

    After all, the Framers explicitly rejected maladministration as a ground for impeachment and removal. James Madison, the father of our Constitution, argued that such open criteria would give Congress far too much power to remove a duly elected president. It would, he feared, turn our republic into a democracy in which the chief executive served at the pleasure of the parliament and could be removed by a simple vote of no confidence.

    Of course, if Democrats say that no one is above the law, they should, Dershowitz argued, apply the same rule to themselves.

    How many times have we heard from Democrats that “no one is above the law” in reference to President Trump? That is true, but neither is Congress above the law. It cannot substitute its own criteria for those mandated by the Constitution. The House vote may have been necessary to establish procedures. But the partisanship strongly suggests that what Hamilton regarded as the greatest danger may be on the horizon, namely a vote to impeach a duly elected president based not on “real demonstrations of innocence or guilt” but rather on “comparative strength of parties.”

    And yet, it’s about more than the comparative strength of parties. When you start hearing Democrats talk about patriotism and their love for the constitution, you have to ask yourself when they started caring about patriotism and the constitution.

    In truth, the impeachment follies continues an effort begun at the FBI and the Justice Department, continued by National Security Council holdovers, first, to ensure that Trump not be elected, and second to overthrow the president. In the past it would have been called sedition. They are not just motivated by their hatred of Trump. They are pushing their case because they love Obama more than they care about the constitution or the rule of law. 

    Their idolatrous worship of the last president, their horror at seeing his legacy discarded, has caused them to lose all perspective. They and their satraps in the media declared Obama to be the Messiah. Anyone who refuses to accept him as the Messiah belongs to what medieval inquisitors called the unconverted.

    They refused to believe that Obama had done anything wrong, that his policies might not have been very good. So deep is their love for Obama that they will do anything, defy any precedent, ignore any tradition, in order to get Trump. And to restore the Obama legacy, what with its dismissal of patriotism and its disregard for of America’s political tradition.

              

    The Katie Hill Saga, Last Chapter

     Cache   

    Is Maureen Dowd becoming conservative? Has she broken with social constructivist morality to pivot back toward traditional rules?

    For some it will be a horrifying turn. For others it will restore their faith in humanity. The notion that you cannot make up your own rules, even if you get all of your friends to sign on to them… seems not to have penetrated the skulls of our millennial generation.

    You see, millennials believe that right and wrong are social constructions. If you do something that other people might have seen as wrong, then you can make it right by persuading everyone to think that it was really right. I admit, persuading is a bit bland here. If you want everyone to think that there is nothing wrong or even risky with sending out naked pictures of yourself, then you can solve the problem by blinding everyone—figuratively speaking.

    Those unhappy few who resist the brainwashing or who refuse to comply with the new social constructivist morality must be denounced and voted off the island.

    As for our moral world, it resembles nothing but the world of Hans Christian Anderson’s story, “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”  As you know well, the Emperor has been persuaded by a couple of swindlers that anyone who does not agree that he, wearing nothing, is decked out in imperial finery is morally degenerate, and disloyal. Being a good subject means accepting that reality is what the emperor thinks it is.

    Evidently, the sham is exposed when a boy shouts out the truth. He is not speaking truth to power as much as he is defying an commonly accepted illusion. He is expressing an opinion that is unacceptable in proper social circles. In the story, the emperor continues on his way. In reality, Rep. Katie Hill was forced to resign from Congress.

    In her column today Dowd offers a dialogue between her boomer self and a millennial Times staff member. When faced with the notion that all moral truth is relative, merely a function of what you can get people to believe, Dowd demurs. Despite what the millennial generation has been brainwashed into believing, we have not yet repealed human nature.

    Exposing your nakedness to the public, risking having your nakedness exposed to the public, is still shameful. Because shame is a universal emotional sanction against exhibiting your private parts in public. That is why they are called private.

    Allow Dowd her say:

    I get that young people are digital natives, even cyborgs. But I had to offer a riposte to Shawn that, while society can be reshaped, human nature is immutable. What I learned from studying Shakespeare is that the primary colors of emotions carry through the centuries.

    There will always be vengeful exes and envious allies and ruthless opponents and double-crossing friends. Whether the messages are being carried by pigeons or pixels, you have to protect yourself — and your data. Don’t let our shiny new tools blind you to the fact that some horrible truths about humanity never change.

    And don’t leave yourself vulnerable by giving people the ammunition — or the nudes — to strip you of your dreams.

    OK, millennials?

    The highly estimable Whoopi Goldberg made the same point and received gales of derision. But, truth is truth. Anyone who sends such pictures over the internet, or who memorializes his or her romps in photos, is running a risk. The same applies to any woman who takes what has been called the walk of shame. If she walking down the street or across the quad on Sunday morning dressed for a party, her shame does not merely arise from the fact that a lot of people will judge her ill, but from the fact that she knows that she is showing the world that she does not respect herself.

    One notes, and one underscores, that we do not care what she was doing the night before. And we do not really care about what Katie Hill was doing with her girlfriend, her boyfriend and her husband. We care when it is flashed in our faces. We care about the indiscretion more than we care about the parties.

    As for the Katie Hill saga, here is Dowd’s take. The Shawn in question is Shawn McCreesh:

    Shawn OK-Boomered me Friday on the topic of Katie Hill, the 32-year-old freshman California congresswoman who is openly bisexual and ran what Vice dubbed “the most millennial campaign ever.” Her promising career flamed out in a scandal that was both age-old and very millennial, in that it featured revenge porn, a throuple, sexual fluidity and dirty bong water.

    Hill was a blast of fresh air on the Hill. And it is amazing that, after two centuries of men treating the political landscape here as a droit du seigneur playground, that the one ensnared in an ethics investigation about the new rules enacted last year on sexual harassment — barring lawmakers from having sexual relationships with staffers — is a woman.

    Hill pointed the finger at her “abusive” loser husband, Kenny Heslep, who has been unemployed for the past five years, implying that he leaked the pictures and texts to Hill’s foes. Not since Linda Tripp has there been such a creepy betrayal in politics.

    Being as the moral default for the millennial generation is to blame the double standard, it is worth noting the number of men whose Congressional careers have been aborted by sexual improprieties. You can read the list in The Daily Caller.

    In the world of eternal socio-sexual verities, we also note that Hill was betrayed by her husband. Apparently, he had no problem engaging in threesomes with Hill and her comely female assistant, but he drew the line against sharing her with a man. We can tamp down our outrage by seeing this in more Darwinian terms. If a throuple contains two women and one man, there is never any doubt about who the father is. If the throuple contains two men and one woman, there is always doubt. As Dowd suggests, the millennial generation has not yet managed to repeal human nature.

    As for the other eternal verities, the one that no one seems inclined to notice, Hill’s vengeful husband had been thoroughly emasculated—in the social sense, not in the sexual sense—and had been reduced to a house husband, a man who had no place in the world of work, that is, the world of men, but was told by his wife to stay at home and do the laundry.

    One understands that the woke millennial generation has decided that gender roles are merely a social construction. Apparently, Hill’s husband did not think so. Having other men see him as a wuss must have worn him down. He decided that revenge was sweet, and that he would destroy the career that had been used to destroy his own career aspirations.

    Of course, millennials do not approve. So what. And they point out that they have all taken and distributed pornographic pictures of themselves. Dowd quotes Shawn:

    He pointed to a viral text going around this past month as evidence that most young people have at least one picture on their phones that they don’t want to get out. The first line of the text refers to Instagram and pops up on the recipient’s phone with the most horrifying words known to the millennial mind: “Why is there a nude on your story??” Once the text is opened, it turns out to be a prank. Nonetheless, Shawn said, it caused a lot of spilled coffees and near car crashes among his friends.

    He said that iPhones and social media have so reshaped culture that older people would have to accept the new and sometimes naked reality.

    The notion that older people must accept these youthful aberrations must have a long history. It is like bluffing when your cards are exposed.

    One also notes that Dowd first-names her interlocutor… perhaps because we usually first name women more often than we do men.

    Anyway, McCreesh has offered an absurd thought, one that has defined the moral character of the millennial generation. They are like the ostrich who has stuck his head in the sand and who thinks that it makes him invisible. They know that they are making moral errors. They know that their moral errors might very well haunt them forever. And yet, they believe that they can obviate the pain by taking over everyone’s minds, by making it more reprehensible to say that the emperor is naked. 

    Why give up an illusion, especially an illusion that will expose you as a shameless dupe when you can just shoot the boy who declares that the emperor is naked. Not literally, of course. But, you must shut him up and shut him down. Dissenting opinions are no longer welcome because they might force millennials to face their moral derelictions. 

    Perhaps this tells us why the younger generations are so happy to shut up dissenting opinions and why they believe that mind control will save their honor. They are going to have a very rude awakening.

              

    The Absurd Idea of World Citizenship

     Cache   

    In a wonderful Commentary article Bruce Bawer takes down the concept of citizen of the world. John Hinderaker reports on it for Powerline (via Maggie’s Farm.) For our purposes we will look at Bawer’s article.

    Bawer dates the advent of the concept to Diogenes, who lived in the fourth century A.D., but the more modern source lies in Immanuel Kant. In his essay on the idea of a universal history Kant claimed that we should all become citizens of the world. Barack Obama echoed the thought in a 2008 address he delivered in Germany at the Brandenburg Gate.

    So, the concept embodies Enlightenment idealism. I assume that we all know that the Enlightenment in Germany had nothing to do with the British and Scottish versions. Since the time of early Greek philosophy idealism and empiricism have been warring against each other. Arthur Herman has written an excellent book about the history of the conflict, entitled The Cave and the Light

    Anyway, citizenship of the world is an idealistic concept, one that disregards nations, borders, boundaries and true citizenship in exchange for the promise of a world of milk and honey, peace and prosperity where we would fight no more wars because we will all belong to one hulking planetary whole.

    Bawer approvingly quotes the hapless Theresa May, in one of her rare moments of lucidity:

    …if you believe you are a citizen of the world, you are a citizen of nowhere.

    Ironically, of perhaps paradoxically, the thrust toward global citizenship began after Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were defeated by the armies of the Anglosphere in World War II. It intensified after the same Anglosphere defeated Communism in the Cold War. Thus it feels like a victor's lament... for having hurt the feelings of the losers. 

    Obviously enough, Woodrow Wilson's ill-fated league of nations-- another Kantian concept-- showed that global citizenship was a bad idea.

    Bawer explains:

    Ironically enough, the contemporary enthusiasm for global citizenship has its roots in the historical moment that marked the triumph of modern national identity and pride—namely, the World War II victory of free countries (plus the Soviet Union) over their unfree enemies. Citizens of small, conquered nations resisted oppression and, in many cases, gave their lives out of sheer patriotism and love of liberty. As Allied tanks rolled into one liberated town after another, people waved flags that had been hidden away during the occupation. Germany and Japan had sought to create empires that erased national borders and turned free citizens into subjects of tyranny; brave patriots destroyed that dream and restored their homelands’ sovereignty and freedom. And yet a major consequence of this victory was the establishment of an organization, the United Nations. Its founding rhetoric, like that of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, was all about the erasure of borders, even as it hoisted its own baby-blue flag alongside those of its members.

    It seems to be a reaction against the martial values that won the wars. Under the guise of preventing wars the reactionaries tried to revalue more feminine maternal values, ones that cared more for caring and less for competition:

    The chief force behind the Declaration was Eleanor Roosevelt, the chair of the UN’s Human Rights Commission. In a 1945 newspaper column, she had had some interesting things to say about patriotism and what we would now call globalism. “Willy-nilly,” she wrote, “everyone [sic] of us cares more for his own country than for any other. That is human nature. We love the bit of land where we have grown to maturity and known the joys and sorrows of life. The time has come however when we must recognize that our mutual [sic] devotion to our own land must never blind us to the good of all lands and of all peoples.”

    The illusion is sustained by the United Nations, another political and cultural fraud:

    Behind the Iron Curtain, captive peoples weren’t citizens, global or otherwise, but prisoners. Yet in the West, the UN’s language of what we now call global citizenship started to take hold, and the UN began to be an object of widespread, although hardly universal, veneration. In reality, the UN may be a massive and inert bureaucratic kleptocracy yoked to a debating society, most of whose member states are unfree or partly free; but people in the free world who grow starry-eyed at the thought of global citizenship view it as somehow magically exceeding, in moral terms, the sum of its parts.

    Bawer taxes the movement with moral dereliction. If you do not belong to a country you need not concern yourself with defending the country. And you have no responsibilities to your fellow citizens, because everyone the world over is a citizen of the world. If we believe that we must care for everyone who is alive we are going to find ourselves in the position of not caring for anyone.

              

    Detransitioning

     Cache   

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

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

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

    Sullivan writes:

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

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

    The medical consequences of their decisions are none too pretty:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     Sullivan continues:

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

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

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

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

              

    Making American Children Stupid

     Cache   

    On the education front the bad news keeps coming. America’s schoolchildren are becoming dumber. They are less competent in basic English and basic math. Numerous news outlets have reported the results of the latest tests.

    Here, from the New York Times:

    America’s fourth and eighth graders are losing ground in their ability to read literature and academic texts, according to a rigorous national assessment released Wednesday that is likely to fuel concerns over student achievement after decades of tumult on the educational landscape.

    Two out of three children did not meet the standards for reading proficiency set by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a test administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, the research arm of the Education Department.

    The dismal results reflected the performance of about 600,000 students in reading and math, whose scores made up what is called the “nation’s report card.” The average eighth-grade reading score declined in more than half of the states compared with 2017, the last time the test was given. The average score in fourth-grade reading declined in 17 states. Math scores remained relatively flat in most states.

    Only 35 percent of fourth graders were proficient in reading in 2019, down from 37 percent in 2017; 34 percent of eighth graders were proficient in reading, down from 36 percent. Overall student progress in reading has stalled in the last decade, with the highest performers stagnating and the lowest-achieving students falling further behind.

    Not a very good record. Nothing to be proud of. The Times, like other major media outlets believes that we can solve it all by spending more money on education. None of them recognize that students in charter schools like New York’s Success Academies are outperforming their peers, even their peers in the suburbs. And none of them recognize that the throw-more-money-at-it approach is the teachers’ union policy. You know about the teachers’ unions: with the help of the Democratic politicians they own, they are trying to shut down charter schools.

    The stories ignore these points. They also ignore the fact, reported by Stephen Kruiser on Pajamas Media (via Maggie’s Farm) and by Joy Pullman in The Federalist, that the children whose edu
