ARCOmadrid 2020 will boost its image as a fair for discovering national and international creative talent

 Cache   
Nov 06, 2019
Picture: 

• The fair continues to attract first-level international galleries and is stepping up its support for innovation and research by adding new galleries

• There will be 210 galleries from 30 countries, of which 171 make up the General Programme, in addition to the curated sections: It’s Just a Matter of Time featuring a selection of 13 artists from 11 galleries; Dialogues, with 10 galleries, and Opening, with 21

• As well as giving creators a more prominent role through talks, guided tours and more artist projects, 35% of the galleries will be participating in programmes showcasing one or two artists, making ARCOmadrid an even better place to discover artists’ work

• For the first time, visitors will have the option to take professional guided tours. Registration is required and the cost is 20 euros

Madrid, 6th November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- ARCOmadrid 2020, organised by IFEMA will hold its 39th edition from 26 February to 1 March. The event is stepping up its support for innovation and research and will be focused on the concept It’s Just a Matter of Time as its main theme, which will analyse artistic practices through the work of Félix González-Torres. The good health of ARCO and the confidence of the sector in the Fair and in the Spanish market are reflected in the interest shown by galleries to take part in the next event. In this regard, the number of applications to participate has increased and bolder projects have been submitted for exhibition. Always focused on maintaining quality standards of content, ARCOmadrid is encouraging artist participation by giving them a bigger role during the fair, through talks, guided tours and more artist projects.

ARCOmadrid 2020 will bring together 210 galleries from 30 countries. The event will again revolve around the General Programme, consisting of 171 galleries selected by the Organisers’ Committee, in addition to the curated sections.

It’s Just a Matter of Time is the special proposal in the upcoming edition of ARCOmadrid. The section will be curated by Alejandro Cesarco and Mason Leaver-Yap, with Manuel Segade in a discussion programme, consisting of 13 artists from 11 galleries. In the meantime, Dialogues, an exhibition featuring 10 galleries selected by Agustín Pérez Rubio and Lucía Sanromán, will analyse contemporary creation by focusing on the dialogue between two creators, paying special attention to artistic practices of women’s art in Latin American and common threads in artists from different generations. Once again, the Opening programme will be a place for discovering new initiatives at ARCOmadrid. The 21 galleries selected by Tiago de Abreu Pinto and Övül Ö. Durmusoglu, will represent works from the young international scene.

The upcoming edition will feature galleries that have placed their trust in ARCOmadrid such as Massimo Minini and Francesa Minini; Perrotin; Sies+Höke; Buchholz; Barbara Weiss; Nordenhake and Jan Mot. Among the returning galleries are Ellen de Bruijne Projects; Hollybush Gardens; Martin Janda. In addition to other important ones that keep their commitment to the Fair such as Hauser & Wirth; Thaddeaus Ropac; Chantal Crousel; Esther Schipper; Meyer Riegger; Continua; Fortes d’Aloia & Gabriel; Dvir and Luisa Strina.

ARCOmadrid is also interested in presenting new galleries which, either because of their reduced trajectory or because they are recent arrivals on the Spanish scene, present interesting proposals and allow other creators to be discovered. Along this line, and through both the General Programme and the curated sections, the Fair will be a place to explore galleries such as Anglim Gilbert; Cortesi; Fran Reus; Gypsum; Higher Pictures; Krakow Witkin Gallery; Movart; Superficie; Suprainfinit and The Pill.

Participation by Spanish galleries has increased slightly to a total of 70 – accounting for 33% of the total - not all of them from major cities, which offers an opportunity to widen the perspective and discover the interesting work being done in other parts of the country. Thus, ATM (Gijón), Art Nueve (Murcia), Ángeles Baños (Badajoz) and Nordes (Santiago de Compostela), joined other projects such as PM8, (Vigo) and L21 (Palma de Mallorca), among others.

One of the most important parts of the world represented at the fair will again be Latin America. This time, of the 67% of international participants, 22% will come from Latin America, with a special presence of Brazil and Argentina, positioning ARCOmadrid once agains as a meeting and exchange point between Europe and Latin America.

. A greater voice for artists
This edition will consolidate its role as a leading area for research, discovery and knowledge of artists. 35% of galleries will present projects by individual artists or in dialogue on their stands. From the Solo/Duo in the General Programme, with Laura Lima and Marcius Galan (Luisa Strina); Nicolás Guagnini and Jef Geys (Max Mayer); Enzo Cucchi and Adrián Balseca (Madragoa), to curated programmes with Jac Leirner (Franco Noero); Hudinilson Jr. (Jaqueline Martins); Kia LaBeija (Higher Pictures); Nohemí Pérez and Óscar Murillo (Instituto De Visión); Lynn Hershman Leeson and Bruce Conner (Anglim Gilbert); Yonamine (Jahmek); Lucas Simões and Estefanía Landesmann (Pasto).

Similarly, this call will showcase more numerous and bolder artist projects, among which will be those by Alfredo Jaar; Mario Merz and Tony Oursler, as well as younger creators like Álvaro Urbano and Sara Ramo.

The decision to give more voice to artists is also reflected in Artists Forum talks and in the Arts Libris presentations which will call upon creators to explain their work in a series of public sessions organised by section creators and other guests, which will allow a better understanding of their creative processes and research frameworks.

Likewise, collectors invited to ARCOmadrid – around 300 from 40 countries - will have the opportunity to enjoy guided tours led by artists.

For the first time the public, who will be admitted to the fair during the weekend - from 28 February to 1 March – will also be able to register for professionally guided tours which will be available for a fee of 20 euros. Visitors can buy tickets at a reduced price from 1st December to 1st February. All at arcomadrid.com

ARCOmadrid, one of whose goals is to encourage new collecting, is one again relaunching the iniciative #mecomprounaobra through the koyac.net platform. From 26th November to 26th December the public will be able to buy works of art for up to €2,020 euros proposed by the European galleries participating in the next edition of the Fair. This project will be open to all participating galleries during ARCO.

ARCOmadrid will hold its 39th edition from 26th February to 1st March 2020 in Halls 7 and 9 at IFEMA, from 12 a.m to 8 pm.

Finally today, Bits reader Andrew D asked Turbine Media Group in Germany for clarification on the differences in running time between the “unrated” version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho that they’re including in their Psycho Legacy Collection: Limited Edition Blu-ray box set due on 1/31/19 in Germany (it’s coded for region A, B and C – click here to pre-order it from Amazon.de) and the U.S. theatrical release. Here’s their response:

“We’re talking roughly 20 secs [longer] here. Then... from what we’re researched... there’s no US cut or German cut. Apparently Hitchcock delivered a single cut to the studio. This was submitted to the appropriate ratings boards (especially MPAA and BBFC). Then, and this is what we (strongly) assume, Universal edited the film to release it. For some reason, all or some German prints were not censored. One of these prints ended up being used for a telecine for German TV in the 90s, after which the print was sent to storage. We were able to track this down with the help of a genius at Universal (going through old delivery notes). So we regard this version as the true original version, which by today’s standards presumably would be the so called “unrated version” – with the exception that this was in fact rated (16 and above) in Germany.”

Thanks to Andrew for sending that along. Note that this “unrated” cut will be included in the box in two versions: The original English and a German-dubbed version (with German opening and closing credits, and a replacement shot of Loomis writing a letter in German instead of English as in the English version). Again, you can pre-order the set here and you can see the opening packaging below:

Psycho Legacy Collection: Deluxe Edition

All right, that’s all for today. Stay tuned...!

Historic preservation in DC prioritizes loud neighbors, not fine buildings

 Cache   

DC has many more historically protected buildings than cities several times our size. This surfeit of historic structures results from several factors, notably the broad application of rather vague criteria for designation. As Roger Lewis has written, “the HPRB decision is inevitably a judgment call because much of the evidence for historic designation is inherently subjective.”

Once acquired, historic designation requires even simple renovation plans to clear numerous additional hurdles, incurring additional reviews, hearings, and redesigns that can cost many thousands of dollars, and possibly resulting in outright denial. The delays, uncertainty, and subjective judgments intrinsic to this process makes it the perfect legal cover for busybodies attempting to keep the status quo permanently so.

The biggest weapon in the arsenal

These squeaky wheels turn to historic preservation because it’s the most powerful regulatory tool in a municipality's land-use arsenal. Zoning is strictly limited to regulating broad aspects of a building like its size, shape, and use. As the Supreme Court described in Nectow vs. Cambridge, “zoning… cannot be imposed if it does not bear a substantial relation to the public health, safety, morals, or general welfare.” No one can reasonably say that public morals are jeopardized when the neighbors paint their window shutters hot pink.

That often leaves preservation laws as the only legal remedy a city has to shape a building's appearance. Preservation is only meant to apply in limited circumstances, to buildings of “a special character or special historical or aesthetic interest or value” (as the Penn Central case, which established the constitutional validity of local preservation designations, says). Once it’s in force, preservation concerns get the final say over just about everything else that might be on a community’s wish list, whether it’s sustainability, affordability, or occupant comfort.

A rush to judgment

Since every resident “squeaky wheel” is invited to request historic designation for just about any site in the District, many do — and overwhelmingly, they succeed. A map of DC's historic designations (many of which are historic districts) shows how they're concentrated in DC's most economically privileged areas. While few buildings in Wards 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 predate the 20th century, Ward 3 has considerably more historically designated structures than its counterparts.

Base map generated from AtlasPlus. Image by the author.

Historic designation applications closely follow development pressures, as Joe Cortright points out: “if other neighborhoods in the city are designated as ‘historic’ and yours isn’t, then you’re more likely to bear the brunt of development pressures. What makes sense from the standpoint of an individual neighborhood quickly leads to a situation that’s bad for a city.”

This rush by loud neighbors to stave off development through historic protections have resulted in numerous unremarkable buildings finding their way onto DC’s historic inventory. One infamous case involves a strip mall parking lot in Spring Valley — not the only local historic strip-mall parking lot, even though that very idea is considered laughable elsewhere. Its structures were deemed worthy of preservation because, as the nomination form points out, they “are unique in the District of Columbia. Developed by one firm and designed or inspired by one architectural vision, the buildings comprise a cluster that reflects national trends in architecture, merchandising, planning, and retail expansion.” In short, it deserves preservation because it's a strip mall, and strip malls are rare within the boundaries of DC — never mind that they're hardly endangered in Maryland, just three blocks away.

Buildings with blue backgrounds have been designated as historic. Buildings in red were designed by I.M. Pei's firm. The one circled in yellow is a condominium. Base map generated from AtlasPlus. Image by the author.

Across town, I.M. Pei's architecture firm designed seven Brutalist high-rises for developer William Zeckendorf in Southwest Washington: three at L'Enfant Plaza and four at Waterside Mall. Two of them are on the National Register — not the best, not the largest, not the least-altered, not the one Pei most directly shaped, not the one most indicative of his style. Instead, the “historic” ones include one building that happened to be gut-rehabbed and converted to condos, and its condo board was upset by a proposal to build on an adjacent parking lot.

Still not special enough? A district often has lower standards

The arbitrary nature of historic designations was made abundantly clear by DC’s historic preservation staff in a rare 2015 recommendation to deny a historic landmark application for a house in Petworth. In it, they said that the house itself wasn’t that special. Yet, if pulled together with its equally unremarkable neighbors, they cumulatively would clear the bar for architectural significance: “[T]he Board has denied applications to designate [eight addresses] on the grounds that, as architecture, they were not important enough examples or of special distinction in their neighborhoods. An architectural landmark must be a particularly noteworthy example and must be significant to the District of Columbia… The house at 16 Grant Circle does not alone stand out in this way… while not eligible for listing as an Historic Landmark, the house at 16 Grant Circle would undeniably contribute to a Grant Circle Historic District.” Sure enough, just months later the HPRB created the Grant Circle Historic District, evidently at the behest of some residents who wanted to stop construction of legal pop-ups.

Anywhere a penny-pinching developer stamps out identikit designs, the resulting buildings will all look unremarkable, all together — but as long as that togetherness was a while ago, it's apparently sufficient to warrant historic protection. Never mind that the individual buildings might be middling, that their architectural unity is compromised by “non-contributing” buildings in the middle, or that there might be better examples somewhere else.

Other cities take a proactive approach to preservation planning

Many other places, including Arlington, Chicago, and Los Angeles, have proactively done comprehensive “historic resources surveys,” a process that a National Park Service handbook calls the “basis for preservation planning.” The National Historic Preservation Act even lists the first responsibility of a State Historic Preservation Officer, a role that the Office of Planning plays in DC, as “direct and conduct a comprehensive statewide survey of historic property and maintain inventories of the property.”

In these surveys, planners go out into the field to visit and inventory every single building, and evaluate whether it could potentially meet the predetermined criteria for historic designation because of its age, architectural merit, or context. A comprehensive survey is the first step in a proactive approach to preservation that identifies and saves those buildings of greatest historic value — whether the oldest structures, the most noteworthy and influential designs, the best-kept examples of various types and styles, or places that shaped important individuals, events, or movements.

A survey could identify the best examples of particular building types, like those from a certain era, style, architect, or use, and make preservation of the most notable structures a high priority. By doing so, it would guarantee that the stories that those types tell are being preserved, rather than rescuing everything for all time.

The Jost-Kuhn House on Madison St. NW was built as a farmstead before the Civil War, and is decades older than many houses now being considered for historic designation. It did not become a landmark until after an OP survey of farmhouses. Image by Google Street View.

However, OP doesn't seem very interested in a comprehensive survey. It has completed many smaller surveys covering neighborhoods and themes, but even its current preservation plan still sees completing a comprehensive citywide survey as a distant goal for some far-off future year. Instead, it advances still more smaller thematic surveys, e.g., of Georgetown alleys, downtown Modernism, and old farmhouses. The most recent attempt at a District-wide inventory was done by the Joint Committee on Landmarks in the 1960s.

Relying instead on a reactive approach to preservation does an injustice to legitimately interesting buildings whose histories have yet to be uncovered, while also bloating the historic inventory with many other buildings of middling merit. A survey-based approach could not only save more hidden treasures — it probably would have resulted in fewer but higher-quality designations. Chicago's historic resources survey found only 17,371 properties citywide that were even potentially eligible for designation as historic, or just two percent of its structures.

Are we collecting, or hoarding?

Randy Frost, a psychologist who studies hoarding, makes this distinction: “When a collector expands acquisitions beyond well-defined collections… it becomes a hoarding problem.”

Institutions that take their collections seriously have well-defined rules for what enters their collections, because of what philosopher G. K. Chesterton called “the eternal revolution”: “If you leave a white post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again; that is, you must be always having a revolution.”

The Corcoran had a magnificent collection of art, but not all of it was deemed appropriate for the NGA's collection. Image licensed under Creative Commons.

The National Gallery of Art was recently offered the contents of the Corcoran museum, but only took half the pieces. As Peggy Loar, the Corcoran's interim president, told the Post: “If they [NGA] take it in, they have it forever — so they have a big fiduciary responsibility to the United States taxpayer.”

Historic building designation also creates a big fiduciary responsibility: it burdens all future generations of residents with the job of maintaining a building forever, even after its original use and structure have become obsolete.

Preservation costs nothing today, but a lot tomorrow

Maintaining past generations' memories also carries another price: by making urban land more scarce and more expensive, it can hurt future generations' ability to build their own places and create their own memories.

The Obama White House's “Housing Development Toolkit” specifically called out “arbitrary or antiquated preservation regulations” among local policies that discourage new housing development — an “accumulation of even well-intentioned land-use policies [that] can restrict housing availability; create uncertainty for developers and limit private investment; exacerbate the imbalance between jobs and housing; and induce urban sprawl.” (At the time, DC’s planning director dismissed the report, saying they’ve implemented most of its suggestions.)

In New York, preservation and development groups recently issued conflicting reports about whether historic preservation stifles economic growth and housing affordability. The debate has led to some changes in how long landmark designation can take.

If DC wants historic preservation to remain a useful tool for broader planning, rather than one that takes over the entire planning system, it should become more discerning about what it adds to its collection of historic buildings.

Absolut Rainbow 1 Litro (Suecia)

Absolut Rainbow nace cuando la bandera arcoiris está a punto de cumplir los 40 años.

Absolut lleva apoyando a la comunidad LGTBQ desde principios de los 80. Creemos firmemente en la necesidad de luchar por un mundo colorido, diverso y respetuoso. Todo el mundo debería poder mostrarse tal y como es.

A lo largo de los años, Absolut ha llevado a cabo multitud de actividades relacionadas con el Orgullo. De hecho, fue la primera botella de una marca de bebidas alcohólicas en llevar la bandera del arcoíris, un diseño hecho en colaboración con Gilbert Baker. La bandera del arcoíris representa para nosotros la diversidad de voces de la comunidad LGBTQ unidas para celebrar la diferencia. Ahora, cuando la bandera del arcoíris está a punto de cumplir 40 años, es el momento de darle al arcoíris un lugar permanente en nuestro portfolio. Esta vez lo hacemos con brochazos serigrafiados sobre el vidrio, creando una fuerte conexión entre todos los artistas que han inspirado la botella de Absolut en el pasado. Absolut Rainbow Edition es una edición limitada en volumen, no en el tiempo.

Brantley Gilbert: Fire & Brimstone

It would be easy (and lazy journalism) to write about how much Brantley Gilbert's music is un-country. You need only isolate the drum parts for most of these latest songs to confirm this is primarily a rock recording (masked as country). However, there are some quality - if not exactly country - songs on this effort, which cry out for a different sort of evaluation....

With the regulations for Safety Case Regime kicking in from September 2017, all Major Hazards Installation (MHI) companies will be required to submit a Safety Case to demonstrate how risks from major accident hazards can be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).

To provide better understanding to stakeholders about the Safety Case Regime, including key aspects of the Workplace Safety and Health regulation, a ‘Major Hazards Symposium’ was organised by SITLEARN Professional Development, Society of Loss Prevention (SLP), and NTUC’s Employment and Employability Institute (e2i).

More than 110 industry professionals across 57 organisations attended the full-day symposium held on 28 July at SIT@Dover. The event was a good opportunity for participants to tap on the insights and expertise of industry practitioners and government agencies as they shared about process safety in business continuity, leadership and education. se Regime. Participants tapped on the insights and expertise of industry practitioners and government agencies as they shared on process safety in business continuity, leadership and education.

Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of hazardous operating systems and processes. By applying good design principles, engineering and operating practices, incidents that lead to toxic exposure, fires or explosions may be prevented.

Said Professor Ho Yew Kee, Associate Provost (SkillsFuture and Staff Development), SIT in his opening address, “We are sitting at a time of unprecedented changes in technology, societal norms, economic uncertainties and everyday disruption in work processes. A symposium of this nature is a good platform for us to consider how we can do our work better by re-skilling. This is particularly critical in safety issues as one safety lapse will set a company or project back significantly.”

Prof Ho Yew Kee, Associate Provost (SkillsFuture and Staff Development), SIT addressing the audience.

Mr Gilbert Tan, Assistant Director-General, NTUC and CEO, e2i spoke on the importance of workplace safety and why workers need to better prepare themselves. “While the probability of a major incident at an MHI is generally low, the aftermath can be disastrous. Ensuring the safety of MHIs is therefore vital, both to our economy as well as to our workers. Thus, there is a need to build up technical know-how of MHI personnel for this new regime.”

Mr Gilbert Tan, Assistant Director-General, NTUC and CEO, e2i, stressed the importance of raising safety standards at the international level.

Keynote speakers Er. Go Heng Huat, Director, Major Hazards Department, Ministry of Manpower (MOM) gave an overview of the Safety Case journey and regime while Er. Lucas Ng, General Manager, Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore provided the industry's perspective on ‘Process Safety in Respect to Business Continuity’.

Ms Jaime Lim, Acting Deputy Director, Major Hazards Department, MOM rounded up the symposium by highlighting the key takeaways for MHIs to appoint Safety Case lead and commence on their Safety Case preparation.

The symposium also saw the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between e2i, SLP and SIT, to promote joint training and developmental activities aimed at building a pool of skilled professionals with knowledge in process safety, as well as creating upskilling opportunities for those from process and related industries.

The signatories of the MOU (seated L to R): Ms Vicky Wong, Deputy CEO, e2i; Prof Ho Yew Kee, Associate Provost (SkillsFuture and Staff Development), SIT; and Mr Linus Lin, Vice President, SLP.

O elenco traz ainda Bruna Scavuzzi, Jean Pierre Noher, Lisa Eiras, José Araújo e Miguel Pinheiro, entre outros atores brasileiros e franceses. Juliana Carneiro da Cunha faz participação especial em SANTOS DUMONT como a Princesa Isabel, enquanto Fernando Acquarone, que divide a direção com Estêvão Ciavatta, dá vida ao joalheiro francês Louis Cartier, que inventou um relógio especial a pedido de seu amigo aviador.
Além do Brasil e de toda a América Latina e do Caribe, a produção tem lançamento confirmado também nos Estados Unidos, Europa e África, totalizando mais de 70 países ao redor do mundo.
SANTOS DUMONT é produzida por Roberto Rios, Eduardo Zaca, Patricia Carvalho e Rafaella Giannini, da HBO Latin America Originals, e Estevão Ciavatta e Susana Campos, da Pindorama Filmes, com recursos da Condecine – Artigo 39. A direção é de Estevão Ciavatta – que também dirigiu a série exclusiva da HBO PREAMAR – e Fernando Acquarone.

A mechanistic model of meditation by Kaj_Sotala

 Cache   

Med­i­ta­tion has been claimed to have all kinds of trans­for­ma­tive effects on the psy­che, such as im­prov­ing con­cen­tra­tion abil­ity, heal­ing trauma, clean­ing up delu­sions, al­low­ing one to track their sub­con­scious strate­gies, and mak­ing one’s ner­vous sys­tem more effi­cient. How­ever, an ex­pla­na­tion for why and how ex­actly this would hap­pen has typ­i­cally been lack­ing. This makes peo­ple rea­son­ably skep­ti­cal of such claims.

In this post, I want to offer an ex­pla­na­tion for one kind of a mechanism: med­i­ta­tion in­creas­ing the de­gree of a per­son’s in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, and thus lead­ing to in­creas­ing psy­cholog­i­cal unity as in­ter­nal con­flicts are de­tected and re­solved.

Note that this post does not dis­cuss “en­light­en­ment”. That is a re­lated but sep­a­rate topic. It is pos­si­ble to pur­sue med­i­ta­tion mainly for its or­di­nary psy­cholog­i­cal benefits while be­ing un­in­ter­ested in en­light­en­ment, and vice versa.

What is in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness?

In an ear­lier post on in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, I dis­t­in­guished be­tween be­ing aware of some­thing, and be­ing aware of hav­ing been aware of some­thing. My ex­am­ple in­volved that of a robot whose con­scious­ness con­tains one men­tal ob­ject at a time, and which is aware of differ­ent things at differ­ent times:

Robot’s thought at time 1: It’s rain­ing outside
Robot’s thought at time 2: Bat­tery low
Robot’s thought at time 3: Tech­nolog­i­cal un­em­ploy­ment protestors are outside
Robot’s thought at time 4: Bat­tery low
Robot’s thought at time 5: I’m now recharg­ing my battery

At times 2-5, the robot has no aware­ness of the fact that it was think­ing about rain at time 1. As soon as some­thing else cap­tures its at­ten­tion, it has no idea of this ear­lier con­scious con­tent—un­less a par­tic­u­lar sub­sys­tem hap­pens to record the fact, and can later re-pre­sent the con­tent in an ap­pro­pri­ately tagged form:

Time 6: At time 1, there was the thought that [It’s rain­ing out­side]

I said that at time 6, the robot had a mo­ment of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness: a men­tal ob­ject con­tain­ing a sum­mary of its pre­vi­ous thoughts, which can then be sep­a­rately ex­am­ined and acted upon.

Hu­mans are not robots. But I pre­vi­ously sum­ma­rized the neu­ro­science book Con­scious­ness and the Brain, and its global neu­ronal workspace (GNW) model of con­scious­ness. Ac­cord­ing to this model, the con­tents of con­scious­ness cor­re­spond to what is be­ing rep­re­sented in a par­tic­u­lar net­work of neu­rons—the global workspace—that con­nects differ­ent parts of the brain. Differ­ent sys­tems are con­stantly com­pet­ing to get their con­tents into the global workspace, which can only hold one piece of con­tent at a time. Thus, like robots, we too are only aware of one thing at a time, and tend to lose aware­ness of our ear­lier thoughts—un­less some­thing re­minds us of them.

In what fol­lows, I will sug­gest that like robots, hu­mans also have a type of con­scious con­tent that we might call in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, which al­lows us to be more aware of our pre­vi­ous men­tal ac­tivity. (I am bor­row­ing the term from the med­i­ta­tion book The Mind Illu­mi­nated, which dis­t­in­guishes be­tween in­tro­spec­tive at­ten­tion, in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, and metacog­ni­tive in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness. I am elid­ing these differ­ences for the sake of sim­plic­ity.)

In­tro­spec­tive aware­ness is also a skill that can be de­vel­oped. Con­scious­ness and the Brain in­cludes the fol­low­ing ex­cerpt, on rea­sons why some in­for­ma­tion in our brains might not be­come con­sciously available. In short, be­cause there has to be some way of rep­re­sent­ing that in­for­ma­tion in the global workspace, which re­quires ded­i­cated neu­rons that do so:

… a fourth way in which neu­ral in­for­ma­tion can re­main un­con­scious, ac­cord­ing to workspace the­ory, is to be diluted into a com­plex pat­tern of firing. To take a con­crete ex­am­ple, con­sider a vi­sual grat­ing that is so finely spaced, or that flick­ers so fast (50 hertz and above), that you can­not see it. Although you per­ceive only a uniform gray, ex­per­i­ments show that the grat­ing is ac­tu­ally en­coded in­side your brain: dis­tinct groups of vi­sual neu­rons fire for differ­ent ori­en­ta­tions of the grat­ing. Why can’t this pat­tern of neu­ronal ac­tivity be brought to con­scious­ness? Prob­a­bly be­cause it makes use of an ex­tremely tan­gled spa­tiotem­po­ral pat­tern of firing in the pri­mary vi­sual area, a neu­ral ci­pher too com­plex to be ex­plic­itly rec­og­nized by global workspace neu­rons higher up in the cor­tex. Although we do not yet fully un­der­stand the neu­ral code, we be­lieve that, in or­der to be­come con­scious, a piece of in­for­ma­tion first has to be re-en­coded in an ex­plicit form by a com­pact as­sem­bly of neu­rons. The an­te­rior re­gions of the vi­sual cor­tex must ded­i­cate spe­cific neu­rons to mean­ingful vi­sual in­puts, be­fore their own ac­tivity can be am­plified and cause a global workspace ig­ni­tion that brings the in­for­ma­tion into aware­ness. If the in­for­ma­tion re­mains diluted in the firing of myr­iad un­re­lated neu­rons, then it can­not be made con­scious.
Any face that we see, any word that we hear, be­gins in this un­con­scious man­ner, as an ab­surdly con­torted spa­tiotem­po­ral train of spikes in mil­lions of neu­rons, each sens­ing only a minus­cule part of the over­all scene. Each of these in­put pat­terns con­tains vir­tu­ally in­finite amounts of in­for­ma­tion about the speaker, mes­sage, emo­tion, room size . . . if only we could de­code it—but we can’t. We be­come aware of this la­tent in­for­ma­tion only once our higher-level brain ar­eas cat­e­go­rize it into mean­ingful bins. Mak­ing the mes­sage ex­plicit is an es­sen­tial role of the hi­er­ar­chi­cal pyra­mid of sen­sory neu­rons that suc­ces­sively ex­tract in­creas­ingly ab­stract fea­tures of our sen­sa­tions. Sen­sory train­ing makes us aware of faint sights or sounds be­cause, at all lev­els, neu­rons re­ori­ent their prop­er­ties to am­plify these sen­sory mes­sages. Prior to learn­ing, a neu­ronal mes­sage was already pre­sent in our sen­sory ar­eas, but only im­plic­itly, in the form of a diluted firing pat­tern in­ac­cessible to our aware­ness.

De­haene sug­gests that learn­ing to e.g. no­tice smaller de­tails in our sur­round­ings, is based on tap­ping into in­for­ma­tion which is already available in the brain. As one prac­tices look­ing at smaller and smaller de­tails, the brain builds up spe­cial­ized cir­cuits for ex­tract­ing, re-en­cod­ing and re-pre­sent­ing pat­terns which would oth­er­wise have been ig­nored. Gilbert, Sig­man & Crist (2001) write:

Psy­chol­o­gists and psy­chophysi­cists have known since be­fore the turn of the cen­tury that train­ing can im­prove the abil­ity to make dis­crim­i­na­tions in a wide va­ri­ety of sen­sory modal­ities; tasks in­volv­ing vi­sual acu­ity, so­matosen­sory spa­tial re­s­olu­tion, dis­crim­i­na­tion of hue, es­ti­ma­tion of weight, and dis­crim­i­na­tion of acous­ti­cal pitch all show im­prove­ment with prac­tice [...] Train­ing can im­prove the dis­crim­i­na­tion of small differ­ences in the offset of two lines (vernier acu­ity) even though ini­tial thresh­olds are already in the hy­per­acu­ity range [...] the spa­tial re­s­olu­tion of the vi­sual sys­tem, at least in the realm of hy­per­acu­ity, can im­prove with prac­tice [...] Other vi­sual per­cep­tual tasks that im­prove with train­ing in­clude the abil­ity to dis­crim­i­nate ori­en­ta­tion [...] the di­rec­tion of mo­tion [...] the differ­ences in the wave­forms of two sinu­soidal stim­uli [...] and the abil­ity to seg­re­gate el­e­ments of the vi­sual scene us­ing tex­tu­ral cues [...] Train­ing has been found to in­crease the abil­ity of ob­servers to de­tect small differ­ences in the depth of two tar­gets [...] as well as the abil­ity to per­ceive depth in ran­dom-dot stere­ograms.

If we have ac­cess to some sen­sory chan­nel which car­ries with it in­for­ma­tion, train­ing can cause our brains to draw upon in­for­ma­tion which has always been pro­cessed, but never be­fore con­sciously ac­cessed. And we seem to have sen­sory chan­nels which give us in­for­ma­tion about our thoughts—oth­er­wise we would have no idea of what we were think­ing.

Richard’s ther­apy session

We saw an ex­am­ple of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness in my post on the book Un­lock­ing the Emo­tional Brain. In the tran­script, a man named Richard has been suffer­ing from se­vere self-doubt, and is asked to imag­ine how it would feel like if he made con­fi­dent com­ments in a work meet­ing. The fol­low­ing con­ver­sa­tion fol­lows:

Richard: Now I’m feel­ing re­ally un­com­fortable, but-it’s in a differ­ent way.
Ther­a­pist: OK, let your­self feel it—this differ­ent dis­com­fort. [Pause.] See if any words come along with this un­com­fortable feel­ing.
Richard: [Pause.] Now they hate me.

The ther­a­pist is ask­ing Richard to fo­cus his at­ten­tion on the feel­ing of dis­com­fort, gen­er­at­ing mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness about the dis­com­fort. No­tice that Richard be­comes more thought­ful and less re­ac­tive to the anx­iety as he does so. My guess of what is hap­pen­ing is some­thing like this:

When Richard is feel­ing anx­ious, this means that a men­tal ob­ject en­cod­ing some­thing like “the feel­ing of anx­iety” is be­ing rep­re­sented in the workspace. This ac­ti­vates neu­ral rules which trig­ger the kinds of re­sponses that anx­iety has evolved to pro­duce. For ex­am­ple, a sys­tem may be trig­gered which at­tempts to plan how to es­cape the situ­a­tion caus­ing the anx­iety. This sys­tem’s in­ten­tions are then in­jected into the workspace, pro­duc­ing a state of mind where the feel­ing of anx­iety al­ter­nates with thoughts of how to get away.

In­tro­spec­tive aware­ness is its own type of men­tal ob­ject, pro­duced by a differ­ent sub­sys­tem which takes in­puts from the global workspace, re-en­codes them in a for­mat which high­lights par­tic­u­lar as­pects of that data, and out­puts that back into the workspace. When a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of an anx­ious state of mind is cre­ated, that rep­re­sen­ta­tion does not by it­self trig­ger the same rules as the origi­nal anx­iety did.

As a re­sult, as rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the anx­iety be­gin to al­ter­nate to­gether with the anx­iety, there are pro­por­tionately less mo­ments of anx­iety. This in turn trig­gers fewer of the sub­sys­tems at­tempt­ing to es­cape the situ­a­tion, mak­ing it eas­ier to re­flect on the anx­iety with­out be­ing both­ered by it.

When Richard’s ther­a­pist asks him to feel the anx­iety and to see if any words come along with it, the sub­sys­tem for in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness was primed to look for any con­tent that could be re-pre­sented in ver­bal form. As Richard’s anx­iety had been pro­duced by an emo­tional schema in­clud­ing a pre­dic­tion that be­ing con­fi­dent makes you hated, some of that in­for­ma­tion had passed through the workspace and been available for the aware­ness sub­sys­tem to cap­ture. This brought up the ver­bal­iza­tion of what the schema pre­dicted would hap­pen if Richard was con­fi­dent—“now they hate me”.

Ther­a­pist: “Now they hate me.” Good. Keep go­ing: See if this re­ally un­com­fortable feel­ing can also tell you why they hate you now.

Ac­cord­ing to the GNW model, when a par­tic­u­lar piece of con­tent is main­tained as the cen­ter of at­ten­tion, it strength­ens the ac­ti­va­tion of any struc­tures as­so­ci­ated with it. As Richard’s ther­a­pist guides him to fo­cus on the ver­bal con­tent, more in­for­ma­tion re­lated to it is broad­cast into the workspace. The fur­ther prompt guides the aware­ness sub­sys­tem to look for pat­terns that feel like the rea­son for the hate.

Richard: [Pause.] Hnh. Wow. It’s be­cause… now I’m… an ar­ro­gant ass­hole… like my father… a to­tally self-cen­tered, to­tally in­sen­si­tive know-it-all.

The ther­a­pist then takes a pat­tern which Richard has brought up and helps crys­tal­lize it fur­ther, and throws it back to Richard for ver­ifi­ca­tion.

Ther­a­pist: Do you mean that hav­ing a feel­ing of con­fi­dence as you speak turns you into an ar­ro­gant ass­hole, like Dad?
Richard: Yeah, ex­actly. Wow.

In this ex­am­ple, we saw that hav­ing more mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness was benefi­cial for Richard. As as­pects of his mo­ment-to-mo­ment con­scious­ness were made available for other sub­sys­tems to ex­am­ine, the emo­tional schema caus­ing the anx­iety was iden­ti­fied and its con­tents ex­tracted into a for­mat which could be fed into other sub­sys­tems. Later on, when Richard’s co-worker dis­played con­fi­dence which oth­ers ap­proved of, a con­tra­dic­tion-de­tec­tion mechanism no­ticed a dis­crep­ancy be­tween re­al­ity and the pre­dic­tion that con­fi­dence makes you hated, al­low­ing the pre­dic­tion to be re­vised.

Un­der this model, the sys­tem which pro­duces mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness is a sub­sys­tem like any other in the brain. This means that it will be ac­ti­vated when the right cues trig­ger it, and its out­puts com­pete with the out­puts of other sys­tems sub­mit­ting con­tent to con­scious­ness. The cir­cum­stances un­der which the sys­tem trig­gers, and its prob­a­bil­ity of suc­cess­fully mak­ing its con­tents con­scious, are mod­ified by re­in­force­ment learn­ing. Just as prac­tic­ing a skill such as ar­ith­metic even­tu­ally causes var­i­ous sub­sys­tems to ma­nipu­late the con­tent of con­scious­ness in the right or­der, prac­tic­ing a skill which benefits from in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness will cause the sub­sys­tem gen­er­at­ing in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to ac­ti­vate more of­ten.

Med­i­ta­tion as a tech­nique for gen­er­at­ing mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive awareness

Just as there are differ­ent forms and styles of ther­apy, there are also differ­ent forms and styles of med­i­ta­tion. All of them in­volve in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to at least some de­gree, but they differ in what that aware­ness is then used for.

In the ex­am­ple with Richard, his ther­a­pist asked him to imag­ine be­ing con­fi­dent and to then bring his aware­ness to why that felt un­com­fortable. In con­trast, a more be­hav­iorally ori­ented ther­a­pist might not have ex­am­ined the rea­son be­hind the dis­com­fort. Rather, they might have taught Richard to no­tice his re­ac­tion to the dis­com­fort, and then use that as a cue for im­ple­ment­ing an op­po­site re­ac­tion. Both kinds of ther­a­pists would ask their clients to gen­er­ate some in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, but aiming that aware­ness at differ­ent kinds of fea­tures, and us­ing the aware­ness to trig­ger differ­ent kinds of strate­gies. The re­sults would cor­re­spond­ingly be very differ­ent.

Like­wise, sys­tems of med­i­ta­tion differ in how much in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness they pro­duce, what kinds of fea­tures the aware­ness-pro­duc­ing sub­sys­tem is trained to ex­tract, and what that aware­ness is then used for. For this ar­ti­cle, I have cho­sen to use the ex­am­ple of the sys­tem in The Mind Illu­mi­nated (TMI), as it is clearly ex­plained and ex­plic­itly phrased in these terms. (Again, TMI has a more pre­cise dis­tinc­tion be­tween in­tro­spec­tive at­ten­tion and in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, which I am elid­ing for the sake of sim­plic­ity.)

In TMI’s sys­tem, as in many oth­ers, you start with try­ing to keep your at­ten­tion on your breath. In terms of our model, this means that you want to keep sen­sory out­puts cor­re­spond­ing to your breath as the main thing in your con­scious­ness.

The prob­lem with this goal is that there is no sub­sys­tem which can just unilat­er­ally de­cide what to main­tain as the cen­ter of at­ten­tion. At any given mo­ment, many differ­ent sub­sys­tems are com­pet­ing to make their con­tent con­scious. So one sys­tem might have the in­ten­tion to fol­low the breath, and you do it for a while, but then a plan­ning sys­tem kicks in with its in­ten­tion to think about din­ner. Such plan­ning has tended to feel re­ward­ing, so it wins out and the in­tent to med­i­tate is for­got­ten un­til five min­utes later, when you de­cide what you want for din­ner and then sud­denly re­mem­ber the thing about fol­low­ing your breath.

TMI calls this mind-wan­der­ing from for­get­ting, and the first step of prac­tice is just to no­tice it when­ever it hap­pens, con­grat­u­late your­self for hav­ing no­ticed it, and then re­turn to the breath. Be­ing able to no­tice for­get­ting re­quires hav­ing a mo­ment of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness which points out the fact that you had not been fol­low­ing your breath. When you take satis­fac­tion in hav­ing no­ticed this, your aware­ness-pro­duc­ing sub­sys­tem gets as­signed a re­ward and be­comes slightly more likely to ac­ti­vate in the fu­ture. “Have I re­mem­bered to fol­low my breath or not?” acts a feed­back mechanism that you can ex­plic­itly train on.

As the aware­ness-pro­duc­ing sys­tem starts to ac­ti­vate more of­ten and ping you if you have for­got­ten to med­i­tate, pe­ri­ods of mind-wan­der­ing grow shorter.

Now, even if you stop get­ting en­tirely lost in thought, you still have dis­trac­tion: con­tent from other sub­sys­tems that is in con­scious­ness to­gether with the sen­sa­tions of the breath and the in­ten­tion to fo­cus on the breath. For ex­am­ple, you might be hav­ing stray thoughts, hear­ing sounds from your en­vi­ron­ment, and ex­pe­rienc­ing sen­sa­tions from your body.

To more ex­clu­sively fo­cus on the breath, you are in­structed to main­tain the in­tent to both at­tend to it and also to be aware of any dis­trac­tions. The sub­sys­tems which out­put men­tal con­tent can, and nor­mally do, op­er­ate in­de­pen­dently of each other. This means that the fol­low­ing may hap­pen:

Sub­sys­tem 1: I’m med­i­tat­ing well!
Sub­sys­tem 2: Hmm, what’s that smell.
Sub­sys­tem 1: I’m med­i­tat­ing well! No dis­trac­tions.
Sub­sys­tem 2: Smells kinda like cook­ies.
Sub­sys­tem 2: Mmm, cook­ies.
Sub­sys­tem 1: Con­tin­u­ing to med­i­tate well!
Sub­sys­tem 2: Say, what’s for din­ner?

That is, a sys­tem which tracks the breath can con­tinue to re­peat­edly find the breath, and re­port that your med­i­ta­tion is pro­ceed­ing well and with no dis­trac­tions… all the while the con­tent of your con­scious­ness con­tinues to al­ter­nate with dis­tracted thoughts, which the breath-track­ing sub­sys­tem is failing to no­tice (be­cause it is track­ing the breath, not the pres­ence of other thoughts). Worse, since you may find it re­ward­ing to just think that you are med­i­tat­ing well, that thought may start to be­come re­warded, and you may find your­self just think­ing that you are med­i­tat­ing well… even as that thought has be­come self-sus­tain­ing and no longer con­nected to whether you are fol­low­ing the breath or not!

There are all kinds of sub­tle traps like this, and re­duc­ing the amount of dis­trac­tion re­quires you to first have bet­ter aware­ness of the dis­trac­tion. This means more mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness which are track­ing what’s ac­tu­ally hap­pen­ing in your mind:

Sub­sys­tem 1: I’m med­i­tat­ing well!
Sub­sys­tem 2: Hmm, what’s that smell.
Sub­sys­tem 1: I’m med­i­tat­ing well! No dis­trac­tions.
Sub­sys­tem 2: Smells kinda like cook­ies.
Sub­sys­tem 2: Mmm, cook­ies.
Aware­ness sub­sys­tem: Wait, one train of thought keeps say­ing that it’s med­i­tat­ing well, but an­other is to­tally get­ting into the thought of food.
Sub­sys­tem 1: Oh. Bet­ter re­fo­cus that at­ten­tion on the breath, and spend less time think­ing about the con­cept of fol­low­ing the breath.

This kind of a pro­cess also teaches you to pay at­ten­tion to pat­terns of cause and effect in your mind. In this ex­am­ple, the smell of cook­ies caused you to think of cook­ies, which in turn made you think of din­ner, which could have ul­ti­mately led to for­get­ting and mind-wan­der­ing.

Catch­ing the train of thought af­ter “mmm, cook­ies” meant that three “pro­cess­ing steps” had passed be­fore you no­ticed it. If you prac­tice trac­ing back trains of thought in your mind, you seem to teach your aware­ness-sys­tem to col­lect and store data from a longer pe­riod, even when it is not ac­tively out­putting it. This means that at the “mmm, cook­ies” stage, you can query your aware­ness to get a trace of the im­me­di­ately pre­ced­ing thought chain.

You no­tice that you started to get dis­tracted start­ing from the smell of the cookie and can then use this as fur­ther in­put to your aware­ness sys­tem. You are es­sen­tially tak­ing the re-pre­sented smell of the cookie which the sys­tem out­put, and feed­ing it back in, ask­ing it to pay more at­ten­tion to de­tect­ing “things like this”. The next time that you no­tice a smell, your in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness may flag it right away, let­ting you catch the dis­trac­tion at the very first stage and be­fore it turns into an ex­tended train of thought.

Note that there is noth­ing par­tic­u­larly mys­te­ri­ous or un­usual about any of this. You are em­ploy­ing es­sen­tially the same pro­cess used in learn­ing any skill. In learn­ing to ride a bike, for ex­am­ple, at­tempt­ing to keep the bike bal­anced in­volves ad­just­ing your move­ments in re­sponse to feed­back. When you do so, your brain be­comes bet­ter at de­tect­ing things like “tilt­ing to­wards the right” in the sense data, in­creas­ing your abil­ity to ap­ply the right cor­rec­tion. After you have learned to iden­tify tilt­ing-a-lot-but-not-quite-fal­ling, your brain learns to back­trace to the pre­ced­ing state of tilt­ing-a-lit­tle-less, and ap­ply the right cor­rec­tion there. Once its pre­ci­sion has been honed to iden­tify that state, you can fur­ther de­tect an even sub­tler tilt, un­til you au­to­mat­i­cally ap­ply the right cor­rec­tions to keep you bal­anced.

Essen­tially the kind of a learn­ing al­gorithm is be­ing ap­plied here. In­creased sen­sory pre­ci­sion leads to im­prove­ments in skill which al­low for in­creased sen­sory pre­ci­sion. (See also this ar­ti­cle, which goes into more de­tail about TMI as a form of de­liber­ate prac­tice.)

Uses for mo­ments of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness

I should again em­pha­size that the pre­ced­ing ex­pla­na­tion is only look­ing at one par­tic­u­lar med­i­ta­tion sys­tem. There are other sys­tems which work very differ­ently, but they all use or de­velop in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to some ex­tent. For ex­am­ple:

  • In Shinzen Young’s for­mu­la­tion of “do noth­ing” prac­tice, you have just two ba­sic in­struc­tions: let what­ever hap­pens, hap­pen and when you no­tice an in­ten­tion to con­trol your at­ten­tion, drop that in­ten­tion. This trains in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to no­tice when one is try­ing to con­trol their at­ten­tion… but it is also a very differ­ent sys­tem, since main­tain­ing an in­ten­tion to no­tice when that hap­pens would also be an at­tempt to con­trol at­ten­tion! Thus, one is in­structed to drop in­ten­tions if one spon­ta­neously no­tices them, but not to ac­tively look for them.

  • In not­ing prac­tice, you are try­ing to con­sciously name or no­tice ev­ery­thing that hap­pens in your con­scious­ness. In­tro­spec­tive aware­ness is trained to very rapidly dis­t­in­guish be­tween ev­ery­thing that hap­pens, but is not trained to main­tain at­ten­tion on any par­tic­u­lar thing.

  • In vi­su­al­iza­tion prac­tice, you might cre­ate a vi­sual image in your mind, then use in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to ex­am­ine the men­tal ob­ject that you’ve cre­ated and com­pare it to what a real image would look like. This gives the sub­sys­tem cre­at­ing the vi­su­al­iza­tion feed­back, and helps slowly de­velop a more re­al­is­tic image.

Go­ing back to TMI-style in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, once you get it trained up, you can use it for var­i­ous pur­poses. In par­tic­u­lar, once you learn to main­tain it dur­ing your daily life—and not just on the med­i­ta­tion couch—it will bring up more as­sump­tions in your var­i­ous schemas and men­tal mod­els. Think of Richard pay­ing at­ten­tion to the as­sump­tions be­hind his un­wanted re­ac­tions and mak­ing them ex­plicit, but as some­thing that hap­pens on a reg­u­lar ba­sis as the re­ac­tions come up.

Romeo Stevens de­scribed what he called “the core loop of Bud­dhism”:

So, what is the core loop?
It’s ba­si­cally cog­ni­tive be­hav­ioral ther­apy, su­per­charged with a men­tal state more in­tense than most phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals.
There are two cat­e­gories of prac­tice, one for cul­ti­vat­ing the use­ful men­tal state, the other uses that men­tal state to in­ves­ti­gate the causal link­ages be­tween var­i­ous parts of your per­cep­tion (phys­i­cal sen­sa­tions, emo­tional tones, and men­tal re­ac­tions) which leads to clear­ing out of old link­ages that weren’t con­structed well.
You have phys­i­cal sen­sa­tions in the course of life. Your ner­vous sys­tem re­acts to these sen­sa­tions with high or low valence (pos­i­tive, nega­tive, neu­tral) and arousal (sym­pa­thetic and parasym­pa­thetic ner­vous sys­tem ac­ti­va­tion), your mind re­acts to these now-emo­tion-laden sen­sa­tions with ac­tivity (men­tal image, men­tal talk) out of which you then build sto­ries to make sense of your situ­a­tion.
The key in­sight that drives ev­ery­thing is the knowl­edge (and later, di­rect ex­pe­rience) that this sys­tem isn’t wired up effi­ciently. Im­por­tantly: I don’t mean this in a nor­ma­tive way. Like you should wire it the way I say just be­cause, but in the ‘this type of cir­cuit only needs 20 nand gates, why are there 60 and why is it shunt­ing ex­cess voltage into the anger cir­cuits over there that have noth­ing to do with this com­pu­ta­tion?’ way. Re­gard­less of pos­si­ble ar­gu­ments over an ul­ti­mately ‘cor­rect’ way to wire ev­ery­thing, there are very low hang­ing fruit in terms of im­prove­ments that will help you effec­tively pur­sue *any* other goal you set your mind to.

Again, we saw an ex­am­ple of this with Richard. He had ex­pe­rienced his father as act­ing con­fi­dent and as caus­ing suffer­ing to Richard and oth­ers; sen­sa­tions which his mind has clas­sified as nega­tive. In or­der to avoid them, a model (story) was con­structed say­ing that con­fi­dence is hor­rible, and be­hav­iors (e.g. nega­tive self-talk) were cre­ated to avoid ap­pear­ing hor­rible.

Now, this caused prob­lems down the line, mak­ing him mo­ti­vated to try to ap­pear more con­fi­dent… mean­ing that there was now a mechanism in his brain try­ing to pre­vent him from ap­pear­ing con­fi­dent, and an­other which con­sid­ered this a prob­lem and tried to make him more con­fi­dent, in op­po­si­tion to the first sys­tem. See what Romeo means when talk­ing about cir­cuits that only need 20 gates but are im­ple­mented us­ing 60?

The ar­ti­cle “tune your mo­tor cor­tex” makes the fol­low­ing claims about mus­cle move­ment:

Your mo­tor cor­tex au­to­mat­i­cally learns to ex­e­cute com­plex move­ments by putting to­gether sim­pler ones, all the way down to con­trol of in­di­vi­d­ual mus­cles.
Be­cause the pro­cess of learn­ing hap­pens or­gan­i­cally, the re­sult­ing ar­chi­tec­ture of neu­ral con­nec­tions (you can think of them as “hid­den lay­ers” in ma­chine learn­ing terms) is not always perfectly suited to the task.
Some lo­cal op­tima of those neu­ral con­figu­ra­tions are hard to get out of, and con­stantly re­in­forced by us­ing them.
There is some pres­sure for mus­cle con­trol to be effi­cient, and the mo­tor cor­tex is do­ing a “good enough” job at it, but tends to stop a fair bit from perfec­tion.
By re­peat­ing cer­tain move­ments and po­si­tions over and over again (e.g. dur­ing sit­ting work), we in­vol­un­tar­ily strengthen con­nec­tions be­tween move­ments and mus­cles that don’t make much sense lumped to­gether.
E.g. con­trol of shoulders might be­come spu­ri­ously wired to­gether with con­trol of thighs (both are of­ten tense dur­ing sit­ting).

There are var­i­ous men­tal mo­tions which are learned in ba­si­cally the same way as phys­i­cal mo­tions are:

  • You learn to calcu­late 12*13 by a tech­nique such as first mul­ti­ply­ing 10*13, keep­ing the re­sult in your mem­ory, calcu­lat­ing 2*13, and then adding the in­ter­me­di­ate re­sults to­gether.

  • You learn that a par­tic­u­lar mem­ory makes you feel slightly un­pleas­ant, and that flinch­ing away from any­thing that would re­mind you of it takes the pain away.

  • You learn that this also works on un­com­fortable chores, teach­ing you to keep push­ing the thought of them away.

  • You learn that your father’s be­hav­ior is painful to you, and that any con­fi­dence re­minds you of that, so you learn nega­tive self-talk which blocks you from act­ing con­fi­dent.

  • You learn that say­ing “no” to peo­ple re­minds you of be­ing pun­ished for say­ing “no” to your par­ents, but that say­ing “yes” too of­ten means that you are con­stantly fulfilling promises to other peo­ple—so you learn to avoid situ­a­tions where you would be asked any­thing.

  • You learn that there’s some­thing you can do in your mind to stop feel­ing up­set, so you start ig­nor­ing your emo­tions and any in­for­ma­tion they might have.

  • You learn that if you feel bad about not get­ting the re­spect you want, think­ing “if only I was good enough at per­sua­sion, I would get what I want” gives you a sense of con­trol—even though this pat­tern also makes you feel per­son­ally at fault when you don’t get what you want.

  • You learn that it’s re­ward­ing to pun­ish peo­ple who have wronged, so you always want to pun­ish some­one when some­thing goes wrong—even if there is no­body but re­al­ity to pun­ish.

  • You learn that it feels good to men­tally pun­ish some­one who is munch­ing too loud, but ac­tu­ally com­plain­ing about it would feel petty, and you’ve learned that pet­ti­ness is frowned upon. So you also learn to block the im­pulse to say any­thing out loud, but con­tinue to get in­creas­ingly an­gry about the sound, caus­ing an es­ca­lat­ing cir­cle of both the an­noy­ance and the block­ing ramp­ing up in in­ten­sity.

As with phys­i­cal move­ments, these can form lo­cal op­tima that are hard to get out of. Many of them are learned in child­hood, when your un­der­stand­ing of the world is limited. But new be­hav­iors con­tinue to build on top of them, so you will even­tu­ally end up with a sys­tem which could use a lot of op­ti­miza­tion.

If you have more in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness of the ex­act pro­cesses that are hap­pen­ing in your mind, you can make more im­plicit as­sump­tions con­scious, caus­ing your brain’s built-in con­tra­dic­tion de­tec­tor to no­tice when they con­tra­dict your later learn­ing. Also, get­ting more feed­back about what ex­actly is hap­pen­ing in your mind al­lows you to no­tice more wasted mo­tion in gen­eral.

One par­tic­u­lar effect is that, as Un­lock­ing the Emo­tional Brain notes, the mind of­ten makes trade-offs where it causes it­self some minor suffer­ing in or­der to avoid a per­ceived greater suffer­ing. For ex­am­ple, some­one may feel guilt in or­der to mo­ti­vate them­selves, or ex­pe­rience self-doubt to avoid ap­pear­ing too con­fi­dent. By em­ploy­ing greater in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness, one may find ways to achieve their goals with­out need­ing to ex­pe­rience any suffer­ing in or­der to do so.

Of course, Bud­dhist med­i­ta­tion is not the only way to achieve this. Var­i­ous ther­a­pies and tech­niques such as Fo­cus­ing, In­ter­nal Fam­ily Sys­tems, In­ter­nal Dou­ble Crux, and so on, are also meth­ods which use in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to re­veal and re­fac­tor var­i­ous as­sump­tions. In­creased in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness from med­i­ta­tion tends to also boost the effec­tive­ness of re­lated tech­niques, as well as re­veal more situ­a­tions where they can be em­ployed.

If in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness is so great, why don’t we have it nat­u­rally?

As with any­thing, there are trade­offs in­volved. Hav­ing more in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness can help fix a lot of is­sues… but it also comes with risks, which I as­sume is the rea­son why we have not evolved to have a lot of it all the time.

First, it’s worth not­ing that even for ex­pe­rienced med­i­ta­tors, in­tense emo­tional re­ac­tions tend to shut down in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness. If one of the func­tions of e.g. fear and anx­iety is to cause a rapid re­sponse, then ex­ces­sive amounts of in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness would slow down that re­sponse by re­duc­ing cog­ni­tive fu­sion. Many emo­tions seem to in­hibit many com­pet­ing pro­cesses from ac­cess­ing con­scious­ness, so that you can deal with the situ­a­tion at hand.

Another con­sid­er­a­tion in­volves trau­matic mem­o­ries. In the be­gin­ning of the ar­ti­cle, I sug­gested that anx­iety is a spe­cial kind of men­tal ob­ject which ac­ti­vates par­tic­u­lar be­hav­iors. In gen­eral, differ­ent emo­tional states have spe­cific kinds of be­hav­iors and ac­tivi­ties as­so­ci­ated with them—mean­ing that if you have some mem­o­ries which are re­ally painful, they can be­come over­whelming, mak­ing it nec­es­sary to block them in or­der to carry on with your nor­mal life. Med­i­ta­tion can be helpful for work­ing through your trauma, but it can also bring it up be­fore you are ready for it, to the point of re­quiring pro­fes­sional psy­chother­apy to get through. If you are bet­ter at notic­ing all kinds of sub­tle de­tails in your mind, it also be­comes eas­ier to no­tice any­thing that would re­mind you of things you don’t want to re­mem­ber. A de­crease in in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness seems to be a com­mon trauma symp­tom, as this helps block the un­pleas­ant mem­o­ries from be­ing too eas­ily trig­gered.

I have also heard ad­vanced med­i­ta­tors men­tion that in­creased in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness makes it difficult to push away pangs of con­science that they would oth­er­wise have ig­nored, caus­ing prac­ti­cal prob­lems. For ex­am­ple, peo­ple have said that they are no longer able to eat an­i­mal prod­ucts or tell white lies.

On the other hand, ex­tended con­cen­tra­tion prac­tice can also make it eas­ier to block things which you would be bet­ter off not block­ing.

So far, this ar­ti­cle has mostly fo­cused on us­ing in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to no­tice the con­tent of your thoughts. But you can also use it to no­tice the struc­ture of the higher-level pro­cesses gen­er­at­ing your thoughts. Part of how you de­velop con­cen­tra­tion abil­ity is by main­tain­ing in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness of the fact that be­ing able to con­cen­trate on just one thing feels more pleas­ant than hav­ing your at­ten­tion jump be­tween many differ­ent things. This can give you an im­proved abil­ity to choose what you are con­cen­trat­ing on… but also to se­lec­tively ex­clude any­thing un­pleas­ant from your mind.

For ex­am­ple, there was an oc­ca­sion when I needed to do some work, but also had in­tense anx­iety about not want­ing to; in­tense enough that it would nor­mally have made it im­pos­si­ble for me to fo­cus on it. So then I tried to work, and let my in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness ob­serve the feel­ing of head-split­ting agony from my at­ten­tion al­ter­nat­ing be­tween the work and the de­sire not to… and to also no­tice that when­ever my at­ten­tion was on the work, I felt tem­porar­ily bet­ter.

After a while of this, the anx­iety started to get ex­cluded from my con­scious­ness, un­til it sud­denly dropped away com­pletely—as if some deeper pro­cess had judged it use­less and re­voked its ac­cess to con­scious­ness. And while this al­lowed me to do the work that I needed to, it also felt in­ter­nally vi­o­lent, and like it would be too easy to re­press any un­pleas­ant thoughts us­ing it. I still use this kind of tech­nique on oc­ca­sion when I need to con­cen­trate on some­thing, but I try to be cau­tious about it.

The nega­tive side of be­ing able to get bet­ter feed­back about your men­tal pro­cesses, is that you can also get bet­ter feed­back on ex­actly how pleas­ant wire­head­ing feels. If you like to imag­ine pleas­ant things, you can get bet­ter and bet­ter at imag­in­ing pleas­ant things, and ex­clud­ing any wor­ries about it from your con­scious­ness. Med­i­ta­tion teacher Daniel In­gram warns:

Strong in­sight and con­cen­tra­tion prac­tice, even when that prac­tice wasn’t ded­i­cated to the pow­ers, can make peo­ple go tem­porar­ily or per­ma­nently (or for the rest of that life­time) psy­chotic. The more the prac­tice in­volves cre­at­ing ex­pe­riences that di­verge sig­nifi­cantly from what I will crudely term “con­sen­sus re­al­ity”, and the longer one en­gages in these prac­tices, the more likely pro­longed difficul­ties are. It is of note that a sig­nifi­cant num­ber of the pri­mary prop­a­ga­tors of the Western mag­ickal tra­di­tions be­came mod­er­ately nuts to­wards the ends of their lives.
As one Burmese man said to Ken­neth, “My brother does con­cen­tra­tion prac­tice. You know, some­times they go a lit­tle mad!” He was talk­ing about what can some­times hap­pen when peo­ple get into the pow­ers. [...]
I re­mem­ber a let­ter from a friend who was on a long re­treat in Burma and was sup­posed to be do­ing in­sight prac­tices but had slipped into play­ing with these sorts of ex­pe­riences. He was now fas­ci­nated by his abil­ity to see spirit an­i­mals and other su­per­nor­mal be­ings and was hav­ing reg­u­lar con­ver­sa­tions with some sort of low-level god that kept tel­ling him that he was mak­ing ex­cel­lent progress in his in­sight prac­tice—that is, ex­actly what he wanted to hear. How­ever, the fact that he was hav­ing sta­ble vi­sion­ary ex­pe­riences and was buy­ing into their con­tent made it abun­dantly clear that he wasn’t do­ing in­sight prac­tices at all, but was lost in and be­ing fooled by these.

Now, it should be pointed out that “be­ing able to ex­clude any­thing un­pleas­ant from your con­scious­ness” is only go­ing to be a worry for ad­vanced prac­ti­tion­ers who spend a lot of time on the kind of prac­tice that in­clines you to­wards these kinds of risks. Be­fore you get to the point of some­thing like this be­ing a risk, you will get to re­solve a lot of in­ter­nal con­flicts and old is­sues first.

Here is Cu­ladasa, the au­thor of The Mind Illu­mi­nated, be­ing in­ter­viewed about this kind of a “first you re­solve a lot of is­sues, but then you can get the abil­ity to push down the rest” dy­namic:

Michael Taft: … and you’re us­ing the med­i­ta­tion prac­tice to help work with your stuff. But what about the other case that we both know of where peo­ple have reached very high lev­els of med­i­ta­tive ca­pac­ity, they’ve got a lot of in­sight, maybe they’re at some level of awak­en­ing, and they seem to have, in a way, missed a whole pocket of ma­te­rial, or sev­eral pock­ets of ma­te­rial. It’s like they think they’re do­ing fine, but maybe ev­ery­one around them is aware that they’ve got these be­hav­ior pat­terns that do not seem awake at all. And yet the med­i­ta­tion has some­how missed that.
Cu­ladasa: Yes, yes. [...] … there seems to be a cer­tain level of the stuff that we’re talk­ing about that it’s nec­es­sary to deal with to achieve awak­en­ing, but it’s sort of a min­i­mal level. [...] What I think that is in­dica­tive of is that if that hasn’t been suffi­ciently dealt with ear­lier, it has to get dealt with in one way or an­other at that point. That doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean that it’s go­ing to get re­solved; it may just get re­buried a lit­tle more deeply.
Michael Taft: Pushed out of the way.
Cu­ladasa: Yeah, pushed out of the way, or by­passed in some way. That al­lows a per­son to go ahead and [progress] and it’s un­re­al­is­tic to think that ev­ery­thing has been re­solved. [...] a lot of the things that change [...] ac­tu­ally help to push these things aside, to by­pass them in one way or an­other, whereas be­fore some­body has [made as much progress] these would have been suffi­ciently prob­le­matic in their life that, in one way or an­other, they would be aware of them, whether or not they did any­thing about them or were at a place of just tak­ing for granted that I have these, quote, “per­son­al­ity char­ac­ter­is­tics” that are a bit difficult.

I used to be very en­thu­si­as­tic about TMI’s med­i­ta­tion sys­tem. I still con­sider it im­por­tant and use­ful to make progress on, but am slightly more guarded af­ter some of my own ex­pe­riences, hear­ing about the ex­pe­rience of a friend who reached a high level in it, read­ing some cri­tiques of its ten­dency to em­pha­size aware­ness of pos­i­tive ex­pe­riences [1 2], and con­sid­er­ing both the in­ter­view quoted above and Cu­ladasa’s sub­se­quent ac­tions. (That said, the fo­cus on pos­i­tive ex­pe­riences can be a use­ful coun­ter­bal­ance for peo­ple who start off with an over­all nega­tive stance to­wards life.)

I con­tinue to prac­tice it, and would gen­er­ally find it safe un­til you get to around the sixth or so of its ten stages, at which point I would sug­gest start­ing to ex­er­cise some cau­tion. Off the couch, I mostly don’t do much con­cen­tra­tion prac­tice (ex­cept in a con­text where I would need to con­cen­trate any­way). Rather I try to fo­cus my in­tro­spec­tive aware­ness to­wards just ob­serv­ing my mind with­out ac­tively in­terfer­ing with it, In­ter­nal Fam­ily Sys­tems -style prac­tice, and other ac­tivi­ties that do not seem to risk ex­clud­ing too much un­pleas­ant ma­te­rial.

Fi­nally, de­vel­op­ing too much aware­ness into your mind may cause you to start notic­ing con­tra­dic­tions be­tween how you thought it worked, and how it ac­tu­ally works. I sus­pect that a part of how our brains have evolved to op­er­ate, re­lies on those differ­ences go­ing un­no­ticed. This gets us to the topic of en­light­en­ment, which I have not yet dis­cussed, but will do in my next post.

Thanks to Maija Haav­isto, Lumi Pakka­nen and Romeo Stevens for com­ments on an ear­lier draft.

ANOTHER VICTORY: Bus bench and shelter advertising REJECTED by City of St. Augustine Beach, Florida

 Cache   



Three cheers for the City of St. Augustine Beach Commissioners for again opposing ugliness and billboards.  It was unanimous.  Another victory for the public interest. It takes a village.

Three prospective no-bid contractor salesmen or lobbyists asked the City of St. Augustine Beach to approve advertising-laden bus shelters and benches.

The City of St. Augustine Beach rightly rejected them.

The bus shelters or benches were offered on condition of the City of St. Augustine Beach amending its sign code to "conform" to the contractors' demands.

They mentioned a few locations, where their advertisements blare, none in cool hip beach towns like St. Augustine Beach.

They mentioned that some South Florida cities using their services ban political ads, which is unconstitutional under Reed v. Town of Gilbert.

No thanks to City "Manager" BRUCE MAX ROYLE for once again putting dodgy vendors on a Commission agenda. As former Mayor Sherman Gary Snodgrass once told me, he would never have allowed a vendor to present to the Board of Commonwealth Edison or Excelon, the nuclear utilities for which he worked.

Why in the name of all that's does maladroit City "Manager" BRUCE MAX ROYLE continue putting ethically questionable items on the agenda?

Meanwhile this senescent somnambulant mossback eschews real issues, like:

  • global ocean level rise
  • lobbying registration, 
  • ethics reform, 
  • a County Charter, 
  • Inspector General, 
  • Ombuds
  • his own painfully obvious incompetence..


By the way, the grifters in quo cited a loooong Florida statute that then legislature passed to allow such crooked deals. In called it bribery -- they offered a thing of value too the City of St. Augustine Beach if it would amend its sign code. Federal laws, like the Hobbs Act, suggest that such corruption is indefensible, and must be ended at once,

Here's the 1553 word Florida statute in quo, likely the product of louche lobbying of the Florida legislature by CBS OUTDOOR, GANNETT or other large advertising companies:


337.408 Regulation of bus stops, benches, transit shelters, street light poles, waste disposal receptacles, and modular news racks within rights-of-way.—

(1) Benches or transit shelters, including advertising displayed on benches or transit shelters, may be installed within the right-of-way limits of any municipal, county, or state road, except a limited access highway, provided that such benches or transit shelters are for the comfort or convenience of the general public or are at designated stops on official bus routes and provided that written authorization has been given to a qualified private supplier of such service by the municipal government within whose incorporated limits such benches or transit shelters are installed or by the county government within whose unincorporated limits such benches or transit shelters are installed. A municipality or county may authorize the installation, without public bid, of benches and transit shelters together with advertising displayed thereon within the right-of-way limits of such roads. All installations shall be in compliance with all applicable laws and rules, including, without limitation, the Americans with Disabilities Act. Municipalities and counties that authorize or have authorized a bench or transit shelter to be installed within the right-of-way limits of any road on the State Highway System shall be responsible for ensuring that the bench or transit shelter complies with all applicable laws and rules, including, without limitation, the Americans with Disabilities Act, or shall remove the bench or transit shelter. The department shall have no liability for any claims, losses, costs, charges, expenses, damages, liabilities, attorney fees, or court costs relating to the installation, removal, or relocation of any benches or transit shelters authorized by a municipality or county. On and after July 1, 2012, a municipality or county that authorizes a bench or transit shelter to be installed within the right-of-way limits of any road on the State Highway System must require the qualified private supplier, or any other person under contract to install the bench or transit shelter, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the department from any suits, actions, proceedings, claims, losses, costs, charges, expenses, damages, liabilities, attorney fees, and court costs relating to the installation, removal, or relocation of such installations, and shall annually certify to the department in a notarized signed statement that this requirement has been met. The certification shall include the name and address of each person responsible for indemnifying the department for an authorized installation. Municipalities and counties that have authorized the installation of benches or transit shelters within the right-of-way limits of any road on the State Highway System must remove or relocate, or cause the removal or relocation of, the installation at no cost to the department within 60 days after written notice by the department that the installation is unreasonably interfering in any way with the convenient, safe, or continuous use of or the maintenance, improvement, extension, or expansion of the State Highway System road. Any contract for the installation of benches or transit shelters or advertising on benches or transit shelters which was entered into before April 8, 1992, without public bidding is ratified and affirmed. Such benches or transit shelters may not interfere with right-of-way preservation and maintenance. Any bench or transit shelter located on a sidewalk within the right-of-way limits of any road on the State Highway System or the county road system shall be located so as to leave at least 36 inches of clearance for pedestrians and persons in wheelchairs. Such clearance shall be measured in a direction perpendicular to the centerline of the road.
(2) Waste disposal receptacles of less than 110 gallons in capacity, including advertising displayed on such waste disposal receptacles, may be installed within the right-of-way limits of any municipal, county, or state road, except a limited access highway, provided that written authorization has been given to a qualified private supplier of such service by the appropriate municipal or county government. A municipality or county may authorize the installation, without public bid, of waste disposal receptacles together with advertising displayed thereon within the right-of-way limits of such roads. Such waste disposal receptacles may not interfere with right-of-way preservation and maintenance.
(3) Modular news racks, including advertising thereon, may be located within the right-of-way limits of any municipal, county, or state road, except a limited access highway, provided the municipal government within whose incorporated limits such racks are installed or the county government within whose unincorporated limits such racks are installed has passed an ordinance regulating the placement of modular news racks within the right-of-way and has authorized a qualified private supplier of modular news racks to provide such service. The modular news rack or advertising thereon shall not exceed a height of 56 inches or a total advertising space of 56 square feet. No later than 45 days prior to installation of modular news racks, the private supplier shall provide a map of proposed locations and typical installation plans to the department for approval. If the department does not respond within 45 days after receipt of the submitted plans, installation may proceed.
(4) The department has the authority to direct the immediate relocation or removal of any bus stop, bench, transit shelter, waste disposal receptacle, public pay telephone, or modular news rack that endangers life or property or that is otherwise not in compliance with applicable laws and rules, except that transit bus benches that were placed in service before April 1, 1992, are not required to comply with bench size and advertising display size requirements established by the department before March 1, 1992. The department may adopt rules relating to the regulation of bench size and advertising display size requirements. If a municipality or county within which a bench is to be located has adopted an ordinance or other applicable regulation that establishes bench size or advertising display sign requirements different from requirements specified in department rule, the local government requirement applies within the respective municipality or county. Placement of any bench or advertising display on the National Highway System under a local ordinance or regulation adopted under this subsection is subject to approval of the Federal Highway Administration.
(5) A bus stop, bench, transit shelter, waste disposal receptacle, public pay telephone, or modular news rack, or advertising thereon, may not be erected or placed on the right-of-way of any road in a manner that conflicts with the requirements of federal law, regulations, or safety standards, thereby causing the state or any political subdivision the loss of federal funds. Competition among persons seeking to provide bus stop, bench, transit shelter, waste disposal receptacle, public pay telephone, or modular news rack services or advertising on such benches, shelters, receptacles, public pay telephone, or news racks may be regulated, restricted, or denied by the appropriate local government entity consistent with this section.
(6) Street light poles, including attached public service messages and advertisements, may be located within the right-of-way limits of municipal and county roads in the same manner as benches, transit shelters, waste disposal receptacles, and modular news racks as provided in this section and in accordance with municipal and county ordinances. Public service messages and advertisements may be installed on street light poles on roads on the State Highway System in accordance with height, size, setback, spacing distance, duration of display, safety, traffic control, and permitting requirements established by administrative rule of the Department of Transportation. Public service messages and advertisements shall be subject to bilateral agreements, where applicable, to be negotiated with the owner of the street light poles, which shall consider, among other things, power source rates, design, safety, operational and maintenance concerns, and other matters of public importance. For the purposes of this section, the term “street light poles” does not include electric transmission or distribution poles. The department shall have authority to adopt rules pursuant to ss. 120.536(1) and 120.54 to implement the provisions of this section.

AUTHORITARIAN CENSORSHIP RULES: St. Augustine Beach to Mull "Civility Rules"

 Cache   
Update 10 PM, November 4, 2019: St. Augustine Beach consideration of the Sanibel, Florida "civility" policy is dead. Deader than Kelsey's Nuts. Or as the coroner in Wizard of Oz would say, I pronounce igt "not only merely dead, [but] really most sincerely dead." Thanks to the City of St. Augustine Mayor, Commissioners and in-house and outside insurance counsel for coming to their senses. It takes a village.

No thanks to City "Manager" BRUCE MAX ROYLE, who had nothing to contribute all night, and who fell asleep at the dais at least once. It's time for him to go. Now.




Come speak out at St. Augustine Beach City Hall, 6 pm, Monday November 4, 2019.

The City of St. Augustine Beach must learn at last: Democracy is not a spectator sport.

The First Amendment deserves "breathing space." 

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called St. Augustine, Florida the "most lawless city in America" in 1964, resulting in the largest mass arrest of rabbis in American history. 

Our First Amendment deserves "breathing space."  NAACP v. Button, 371 U.S. 415, 433 (1963) New York Times. v. Sullivan, 3766 U.S. 254 (1974); Gasparinetti v. Kerr, 568 F.2d 311, 314-17 (3d Cir. 1977)(illegal restrictions on policemen’s First Amendment rights); Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc. v. Hepps, 479 767, 772, 777 (1986)(O’Connor, J.)(newspaper entitled to breathing space in defamation case); Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46, 52, 56 (1988) (Rehnquist, J.) (magazine parody of TV preacher entitled to breathing space); Keefe v. Ganeakos, 418 F.2d 359, 362 (1st Cir. 1969)(Aldrich, C.J.)(chilling effect on First Amendment illegal suspension of teacher over Atlantic Monthly article on Vietnam War); Parducci v. Rutland, 316 F.Supp. 352, 355, 357 (M.D. Ala 1970)(Johnson, C.J.)(chilling effect in illegal firing of English teacher over Kurt Vonnegut’s Welcome to the Monkey House.


The itty-bitty city of St. Augustine Beach, Florida reminds me of a play I once saw, called "House Rules," about a horribly dysfunctional Florida family.  


St. Augustine Beach "Mayors" rotate and are not elected by the residents.


Somnambulistic City "Manager" BRUCE MAX ROYLE and his willing accomplice, outgoing "Mayor" UNDINE CELESTE PAWLOWSKI GEORGE again wants to inflict "civility rules" that would be unconstitutional and "void for vagueness."  https://cleanupcityofstaugustine.blogspot.com/2019/01/no-legal-defense-st-augustine-beach.html


One of two lawyers on Commission, Mayor George well knows the Reed v. Town of Gilbert case, which necessitated a rewrite of the City of St. Augustine Beach's unconstitutional sign code, which discriminated against political signs and limited candidates to only two weeks of sign-posting, a pro-incumbent rule run riot, about which I had warned since 2007. 


Since 2015, in the Reed v. Town of Gilbert case, our U.S Supreme Court has required "strict scrutiny" of content-based free speech restrictions. Wikipedia explains, "Writing for a majority of the Court, Justice Clarence Thomas held that the town's sign ordinance imposed content-based restrictions that did not survive strict scrutiny because the ordinance was not narrowly tailored to further a compelling government interest. Justice Thomas also clarified that strict scrutiny should always be applied when a law is content-based on its face."


I find it odd that anyone would look to Sanibel, Florida for legal authority for its antique and unconstitutional rules adopted 12.5 years ago, on February 22, 2007, years before Reed v. Town of Gilbert.

The unconstitutional Sanibel "civility rules" that Mayor UNDINE GEORGE want to inflict, stating inter alia:

  • "Speakers and debates should focus on issues, not on persons or personalities."
  • "Anger, rudeness, ridicule, impatience and lack of respect for others are not acceptable behavior.
  • Demonstrations in support or opposition to a speaker or idea such as clapping, cheering, booing or  hissing or intimidating body language are not permitted in Council Chambers or workshop facilities."
No constitutional law research was done on these rules as of Friday, close of business.  When it's done, learned counsel, James Patrick Wilson and insurance defense lawyers, Susan Erdelyi and Denise May will advise:
  • These rules are content-based restrictions on free speech that would be subjected to "strict scrutiny," do not advance a "compelling governmental interest," and would be struck down under Reed v. Town of Gilbert, Arizona576 U.S. ___ ; 135 S. Ct. 2218; 192 L. Ed. 2d 236; 2015 U.S. LEXIS 4061; 83 U.S.L.W. 4444 (2015).
  • These rules don't advance a "compelling governmental interest.
  • These rules are not "narrowly tailored." McCullen v. Coakley, 573 U.S. ___ (2014)
  • These rules are highly subjective and what the Eleventh Circuit called a "standardless delegation" in Café Erotica of Florida, Inc. v. St. Johns County, 360 F.3d 1274 (11th Cir. 2004).
  • These rules do not give the First Amendment its required "breathing space."
  • These rules could lead to illegal ejection of citizens from meetings, resulting non civil rights liability under Lozman v. Riviera Beach, 585 U.S. ___ (2018)


Who needs lectures about "civility" by insecure, often-uncivil and shrill St. Augustine Beach Mayor UNDINE CELESTE PAWLOWSKI GEORGE?  

Mayor GEORGE is the entitled:
  • daughter of TRUMP CLUB leader and vote fraudster, Dr. MICHEL SERGE PAWLOWSKI, D.Sci. and
  • wife of former Mayor of St. Augustine Beach EDWARD GEORGE.
  • lawyer who allegedly intervened to cancel a Code Enforcement case involving her client, Norbert Tuseo. (They fix cases, don't they?)
The latest rotating Mayor of St. Augustine Beach, term-limited on her two-year reign of error --  punctuated by the desire to rule with an "iron fist," frustrated at her inability to inflict $400,000 worth of paid parking through a bogus no-bid PASSPORT LABS, INC. smartphone "app" -- wants to leave her mark on St. Augustine Beach with what?

"Civility rules."

How delightfully unconstitutional.


How impudently, imperiously, insolently pompous, pusillanimous and perverse -- hand me a script, ma'am,


People have a right to be angry.


People have a right to express their views without fear of censorship, or fear of ejection by bullies who misinterpret Florida statute on disrupting meetings, F.S. 871.01, which on remand Fane Loman's Washington, D.C. lawyers are arguing before the Eleventh Circuit is unconstitutional as applied.


The Supreme Court has gotten really tough on government violations of the First Amendment and viewpoint discrimination.  


A small town like St. Augustine Beach must weigh the lively jurisprudence on the First Amendment before going off half-baked into the wild blue yonder of suppression of Freedom of Speech, likely betting futures budgets. 

As Clint Eastwood once said, "Go ahead, make my day."  You can adopt an illegal resolution, or even an ordinance, but you will NEVER have the last word.    https://cleanupcityofstaugustine.blogspot.com/2019/01/no-legal-defense-st-augustine-beach.html

Re: Request No. 2019-496: "Civility for public participation"
Dear St. Augustine Beach Mayor Undine Celeste Pawlowski George, Vice Mayor England, Commissioners Kostka, Samora and Rumrell, Messrs Wilson and Royle, Ms. Raddatz:
1. Where is the Florida and federal constitutional law research on this item?
2. If any exists, please send.
3. If none exists, please delete from agenda.
4. This item requires an ordinance and a public hearing, not a resolution.
5. The Sanibel policy is void for vagueness, has a chilling effect on free speech, and appears upon its face to be unAmerican and ill-advised?
6. If St. Augustine Beach were to adopt it, is it an invitation to a First Amendment lawsuit?
Thank you.
With kindest regards, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Ed Slavin

    A mechanistic model of meditation

     Cache   
    Published on November 6, 2019 9:37 PM UTC

    Meditation has been claimed to have all kinds of transformative effects on the psyche, such as improving concentration ability, healing trauma, cleaning up delusions, allowing one to track their subconscious strategies, and making one’s nervous system more efficient. However, an explanation for why and how exactly this would happen has typically been lacking. This makes people reasonably skeptical of such claims.

    In this post, I want to offer an explanation for one kind of a mechanism: meditation increasing the degree of a person’s introspective awareness, and thus leading to increasing psychological unity as internal conflicts are detected and resolved.

    Note that this post does not discuss “enlightenment”. That is a related but separate topic. It is possible to pursue meditation mainly for its ordinary psychological benefits while being uninterested in enlightenment, and vice versa.

    What is introspective awareness?

    In an earlier post on introspective awareness, I distinguished between being aware of something, and being aware of having been aware of something. My example involved that of a robot whose consciousness contains one mental object at a time, and which is aware of different things at different times:

    Robot’s thought at time 1: It’s raining outside
    Robot’s thought at time 2: Battery low
    Robot’s thought at time 3: Technological unemployment protestors are outside
    Robot’s thought at time 4: Battery low
    Robot’s thought at time 5: I’m now recharging my battery

    At times 2-5, the robot has no awareness of the fact that it was thinking about rain at time 1. As soon as something else captures its attention, it has no idea of this earlier conscious content - unless a particular subsystem happens to record the fact, and can later re-present the content in an appropriately tagged form:

    Time 6: At time 1, there was the thought that [It’s raining outside]

    I said that at time 6, the robot had a moment of introspective awareness: a mental object containing a summary of its previous thoughts, which can then be separately examined and acted upon.

    Humans are not robots. But I previously summarized the neuroscience book Consciousness and the Brain, and its global neuronal workspace (GNW) model of consciousness. According to this model, the contents of consciousness correspond to what is being represented in a particular network of neurons - the global workspace - that connects different parts of the brain. Different systems are constantly competing to get their contents into the global workspace, which can only hold one piece of content at a time. Thus, like robots, we too are only aware of one thing at a time, and tend to lose awareness of our earlier thoughts - unless something reminds us of them.

    In what follows, I will suggest that like robots, humans also have a type of conscious content that we might call introspective awareness, which allows us to be more aware of our previous mental activity. (I am borrowing the term from the meditation book The Mind Illuminated, which distinguishes between introspective attention, introspective awareness, and metacognitive introspective awareness. I am eliding these differences for the sake of simplicity.)

    I will also explore the idea that introspective awareness is a sensory channel in a similar sense as vision and sound are. The experience of sight or sound is produced by subsystems which send information to consciousness; likewise, introspective awareness is produced by a subsystem which captures information in the brain and then sends it (back) to consciousness.

    We can train our other senses to become more accurate and detailed. Gilbert, Sigman & Crist (2001), reviewing the neuroscience or sensory training, list a number of ways in which discrimination can be increased in a variety of sensory modalities: among other things, "visual acuity, somatosensory spatial resolution, discrimination of hue, estimation of weight, and discrimination of acoustical pitch all show improvement with practice"; even the spatial resolution of the visual system can be deliberately increased by training.

    If introspective awareness is a sensory channel, can it also be practiced to improve the number of details it will pick up on? One may feel that I am stretching the metaphor here. But in fact, Consciousness and the Brain suggests that all sensory training is in a sense training in introspection. The additional information that we get by training our senses has always been collected by our brain, but that information has remained isolated at lower levels of processing. To make it conscious, one needs to grow new neural circuits which extract the lower-level information and re-encode it in a format which can be sent to consciousness.

    Thus, the brain already has the ability to take normally unavailable subconscious information and make it consciously available by practice. What is needed is a way to point that learning process at the kind of information that we would normally consider "introspective", rather than on an external information source.

    From Consciousness and the Brain:

    ... a fourth way in which neural information can remain unconscious, according to workspace theory, is to be diluted into a complex pattern of firing. To take a concrete example, consider a visual grating that is so finely spaced, or that flickers so fast (50 hertz and above), that you cannot see it. Although you perceive only a uniform gray, experiments show that the grating is actually encoded inside your brain: distinct groups of visual neurons fire for different orientations of the grating. Why can’t this pattern of neuronal activity be brought to consciousness? Probably because it makes use of an extremely tangled spatiotemporal pattern of firing in the primary visual area, a neural cipher too complex to be explicitly recognized by global workspace neurons higher up in the cortex. Although we do not yet fully understand the neural code, we believe that, in order to become conscious, a piece of information first has to be re-encoded in an explicit form by a compact assembly of neurons. The anterior regions of the visual cortex must dedicate specific neurons to meaningful visual inputs, before their own activity can be amplified and cause a global workspace ignition that brings the information into awareness. If the information remains diluted in the firing of myriad unrelated neurons, then it cannot be made conscious.
    Any face that we see, any word that we hear, begins in this unconscious manner, as an absurdly contorted spatiotemporal train of spikes in millions of neurons, each sensing only a minuscule part of the overall scene. Each of these input patterns contains virtually infinite amounts of information about the speaker, message, emotion, room size . . . if only we could decode it—but we can’t. We become aware of this latent information only once our higher-level brain areas categorize it into meaningful bins. Making the message explicit is an essential role of the hierarchical pyramid of sensory neurons that successively extract increasingly abstract features of our sensations. Sensory training makes us aware of faint sights or sounds because, at all levels, neurons reorient their properties to amplify these sensory messages. Prior to learning, a neuronal message was already present in our sensory areas, but only implicitly, in the form of a diluted firing pattern inaccessible to our awareness.

    Richard’s therapy session

    We saw an example of introspective awareness in my post on the book Unlocking the Emotional Brain. In the transcript, a man named Richard has been suffering from severe self-doubt, and is asked to imagine how it would feel like if he made confident comments in a work meeting. The following conversation follows:

    Richard: Now I’m feeling really uncomfortable, but-it’s in a different way.
    Therapist: OK, let yourself feel it - this different discomfort. [Pause.] See if any words come along with this uncomfortable feeling.
    Richard: [Pause.] Now they hate me.

    The therapist is asking Richard to focus his attention on the feeling of discomfort, generating moments of introspective awareness about the discomfort. Notice that Richard becomes more thoughtful and less reactive to the anxiety as he does so. My guess of what is happening is something like this:

    When Richard is feeling anxious, this means that a mental object encoding something like “the feeling of anxiety” is being represented in the workspace. This activates neural rules which trigger the kinds of responses that anxiety has evolved to produce. For example, a system may be triggered which attempts to plan how to escape the situation causing the anxiety. This system’s intentions are then injected into the workspace, producing a state of mind where the feeling of anxiety alternates with thoughts of how to get away.

    Introspective awareness is its own type of mental object, produced by a different subsystem which takes inputs from the global workspace, re-encodes them in a format which highlights particular aspects of that data, and outputs that back into the workspace. When a representation of an anxious state of mind is created, that representation does not by itself trigger the same rules as the original anxiety did.

    As a result, as representations of the anxiety begin to alternate together with the anxiety, there are proportionately less moments of anxiety. This in turn triggers fewer of the subsystems attempting to escape the situation, making it easier to reflect on the anxiety without being bothered by it.

    When Richard’s therapist asks him to feel the anxiety and to see if any words come along with it, the subsystem for introspective awareness was primed to look for any content that could be re-presented in verbal form. As Richard’s anxiety had been produced by an emotional schema including a prediction that being confident makes you hated, some of that information had passed through the workspace and been available for the awareness subsystem to capture. This brought up the verbalization of what the schema predicted would happen if Richard was confident - “now they hate me”.

    Therapist: “Now they hate me.” Good. Keep going: See if this really uncomfortable feeling can also tell you why they hate you now.

    According to the GNW model, when a particular piece of content is maintained as the center of attention, it strengthens the activation of any structures associated with it. As Richard’s therapist guides him to focus on the verbal content, more information related to it is broadcast into the workspace. The further prompt guides the awareness subsystem to look for patterns that feel like the reason for the hate.

    Richard: [Pause.] Hnh. Wow. It’s because… now I’m… an arrogant asshole… like my father… a totally self-centered, totally insensitive know-it-all.

    The therapist then takes a pattern which Richard has brought up and helps crystallize it further, and throws it back to Richard for verification.

    Therapist: Do you mean that having a feeling of confidence as you speak turns you into an arrogant asshole, like Dad?
    Richard: Yeah, exactly. Wow.

    In this example, we saw that having more moments of introspective awareness was beneficial for Richard. As aspects of his moment-to-moment consciousness were made available for other subsystems to examine, the emotional schema causing the anxiety was identified and its contents extracted into a format which could be fed into other subsystems. Later on, when Richard’s co-worker displayed confidence which others approved of, a contradiction-detection mechanism noticed a discrepancy between reality and the prediction that confidence makes you hated, allowing the prediction to be revised.

    Under this model, the system which produces moments of introspective awareness is a subsystem like any other in the brain. This means that it will be activated when the right cues trigger it, and its outputs compete with the outputs of other systems submitting content to consciousness. The circumstances under which the system triggers, and its probability of successfully making its contents conscious, are modified by reinforcement learning. Just as practicing a skill such as arithmetic eventually causes various subsystems to manipulate the content of consciousness in the right order, practicing a skill which benefits from introspective awareness will cause the subsystem generating introspective awareness to activate more often.

    Meditation as a technique for generating moments of introspective awareness

    Just as there are different forms and styles of therapy, there are also different forms and styles of meditation. All of them involve introspective awareness to at least some degree, but they differ in what that awareness is then used for.

    In the example with Richard, his therapist asked him to imagine being confident and to then bring his awareness to why that felt uncomfortable. In contrast, a more behaviorally oriented therapist might not have examined the reason behind the discomfort. Rather, they might have taught Richard to notice his reaction to the discomfort, and then use that as a cue for implementing an opposite reaction. Both kinds of therapists would ask their clients to generate some introspective awareness, but aiming that awareness at different kinds of features, and using the awareness to trigger different kinds of strategies. The results would correspondingly be very different.

    Likewise, systems of meditation differ in how much introspective awareness they produce, what kinds of features the awareness-producing subsystem is trained to extract, and what that awareness is then used for. For this article, I have chosen to use the example of the system in The Mind Illuminated (TMI), as it is clearly explained and explicitly phrased in these terms. (Again, TMI has a more precise distinction between introspective attention and introspective awareness, which I am eliding for the sake of simplicity.)

    In TMI’s system, as in many others, you start with trying to keep your attention on your breath. In terms of our model, this means that you want to keep sensory outputs corresponding to your breath as the main thing in your consciousness.

    The problem with this goal is that there is no subsystem which can just unilaterally decide what to maintain as the center of attention. At any given moment, many different subsystems are competing to make their content conscious. So one system might have the intention to follow the breath, and you do it for a while, but then a planning system kicks in with its intention to think about dinner. Such planning has tended to feel rewarding, so it wins out and the intent to meditate is forgotten until five minutes later, when you decide what you want for dinner and then suddenly remember the thing about following your breath.

    TMI calls this mind-wandering from forgetting, and the first step of practice is just to notice it whenever it happens, congratulate yourself for having noticed it, and then return to the breath. Being able to notice forgetting requires having a moment of introspective awareness which points out the fact that you had not been following your breath. When you take satisfaction in having noticed this, your awareness-producing subsystem gets assigned a reward and becomes slightly more likely to activate in the future. “Have I remembered to follow my breath or not?” acts a feedback mechanism that you can explicitly train on.

    As the awareness-producing system starts to activate more often and ping you if you have forgotten to meditate, periods of mind-wandering grow shorter.

    Now, even if you stop getting entirely lost in thought, you still have distraction: content from other subsystems that is in consciousness together with the sensations of the breath and the intention to focus on the breath. For example, you might be having stray thoughts, hearing sounds from your environment, and experiencing sensations from your body.

    To more exclusively focus on the breath, you are instructed to maintain the intent to both attend to it and also to be aware of any distractions. The subsystems which output mental content can, and normally do, operate independently of each other. This means that the following may happen:

    Subsystem 1: I’m meditating well!
    Subsystem 2: Hmm, what’s that smell.
    Subsystem 1: I’m meditating well! No distractions.
    Subsystem 2: Smells kinda like cookies.
    Subsystem 2: Mmm, cookies.
    Subsystem 1: Continuing to meditate well!
    Subsystem 2: Say, what’s for dinner?

    That is, a system which tracks the breath can continue to repeatedly find the breath, and report that your meditation is proceeding well and with no distractions… all the while the content of your consciousness continues to alternate with distracted thoughts, which the breath-tracking subsystem is failing to notice (because it is tracking the breath, not the presence of other thoughts). Worse, since you may find it rewarding to just think that you are meditating well, that thought may start to become rewarded, and you may find yourself just thinking that you are meditating well… even as that thought has become self-sustaining and no longer connected to whether you are following the breath or not!

    There are all kinds of subtle traps like this, and reducing the amount of distraction requires you to first have better awareness of the distraction. This means more moments of introspective awareness which are tracking what’s actually happening in your mind:

    Subsystem 1: I’m meditating well!
    Subsystem 2: Hmm, what’s that smell.
    Subsystem 1: I’m meditating well! No distractions.
    Subsystem 2: Smells kinda like cookies.
    Subsystem 2: Mmm, cookies.
    Awareness subsystem: Wait, one train of thought keeps saying that it’s meditating well, but another is totally getting into the thought of food.
    Subsystem 1: Oh. Better refocus that attention on the breath, and spend less time thinking about the concept of following the breath.

    This kind of a process also teaches you to pay attention to patterns of cause and effect in your mind. In this example, the smell of cookies caused you to think of cookies, which in turn made you think of dinner, which could have ultimately led to forgetting and mind-wandering.

    Catching the train of thought after “mmm, cookies” meant that three “processing steps” had passed before you noticed it. If you practice tracing back trains of thought in your mind, you seem to teach your awareness-system to collect and store data from a longer period, even when it is not actively outputting it. This means that at the “mmm, cookies” stage, you can query your awareness to get a trace of the immediately preceding thought chain.

    You notice that you started to get distracted starting from the smell of the cookie and can then use this as further input to your awareness system. You are essentially taking the re-presented smell of the cookie which the system output, and feeding it back in, asking it to pay more attention to detecting “things like this”. The next time that you notice a smell, your introspective awareness may flag it right away, letting you catch the distraction at the very first stage and before it turns into an extended train of thought.

    Note that there is nothing particularly mysterious or unusual about any of this. You are employing essentially the same process used in learning any skill. In learning to ride a bike, for example, attempting to keep the bike balanced involves adjusting your movements in response to feedback. When you do so, your brain becomes better at detecting things like “tilting towards the right” in the sense data, increasing your ability to apply the right correction. After you have learned to identify tilting-a-lot-but-not-quite-falling, your brain learns to backtrace to the preceding state of tilting-a-little-less, and apply the right correction there. Once its precision has been honed to identify that state, you can further detect an even subtler tilt, until you automatically apply the right corrections to keep you balanced.

    Essentially the kind of a learning algorithm is being applied here. Increased sensory precision leads to improvements in skill which allow for increased sensory precision. (See also this article, which goes into more detail about TMI as a form of deliberate practice.)

    Uses for moments of introspective awareness

    I should again emphasize that the preceding explanation is only looking at one particular meditation system. There are other systems which work very differently, but they all use or develop introspective awareness to some extent. For example:

    • In Shinzen Young's formulation of “do nothing” practice, you have just two basic instructions: let whatever happens, happen and when you notice an intention to control your attention, drop that intention. This trains introspective awareness to notice when one is trying to control their attention… but it is also a very different system, since maintaining an intention to notice when that happens would also be an attempt to control attention! Thus, one is instructed to drop intentions if one spontaneously notices them, but not to actively look for them.
    • In noting practice, you are trying to consciously name or notice everything that happens in your consciousness. Introspective awareness is trained to very rapidly distinguish between everything that happens, but is not trained to maintain attention on any particular thing.
    • In visualization practice, you might create a visual image in your mind, then use introspective awareness to examine the mental object that you’ve created and compare it to what a real image would look like. This gives the subsystem creating the visualization feedback, and helps slowly develop a more realistic image.

    Going back to TMI-style introspective awareness, once you get it trained up, you can use it for various purposes. In particular, once you learn to maintain it during your daily life - and not just on the meditation couch - it will bring up more assumptions in your various schemas and mental models. Think of Richard paying attention to the assumptions behind his unwanted reactions and making them explicit, but as something that happens on a regular basis as the reactions come up.

    Romeo Stevens described what he called “the core loop of Buddhism”:

    So, what is the core loop?
    It's basically cognitive behavioral therapy, supercharged with a mental state more intense than most pharmaceuticals.
    There are two categories of practice, one for cultivating the useful mental state, the other uses that mental state to investigate the causal linkages between various parts of your perception (physical sensations, emotional tones, and mental reactions) which leads to clearing out of old linkages that weren't constructed well.
    You have physical sensations in the course of life. Your nervous system reacts to these sensations with high or low valence (positive, negative, neutral) and arousal (sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system activation), your mind reacts to these now-emotion-laden sensations with activity (mental image, mental talk) out of which you then build stories to make sense of your situation.
    The key insight that drives everything is the knowledge (and later, direct experience) that this system isn't wired up efficiently. Importantly: I don't mean this in a normative way. Like you should wire it the way I say just because, but in the 'this type of circuit only needs 20 nand gates, why are there 60 and why is it shunting excess voltage into the anger circuits over there that have nothing to do with this computation?' way. Regardless of possible arguments over an ultimately 'correct' way to wire everything, there are very low hanging fruit in terms of improvements that will help you effectively pursue *any* other goal you set your mind to.

    Again, we saw an example of this with Richard. He had experienced his father as acting confident and as causing suffering to Richard and others; sensations which his mind has classified as negative. In order to avoid them, a model (story) was constructed saying that confidence is horrible, and behaviors (e.g. negative self-talk) were created to avoid appearing horrible.

    Now, this caused problems down the line, making him motivated to try to appear more confident… meaning that there was now a mechanism in his brain trying to prevent him from appearing confident, and another which considered this a problem and tried to make him more confident, in opposition to the first system. See what Romeo means when talking about circuits that only need 20 gates but are implemented using 60?

    The article “tune your motor cortex” makes the following claims about muscle movement:

    Your motor cortex automatically learns to execute complex movements by putting together simpler ones, all the way down to control of individual muscles.
    Because the process of learning happens organically, the resulting architecture of neural connections (you can think of them as "hidden layers" in machine learning terms) is not always perfectly suited to the task.
    Some local optima of those neural configurations are hard to get out of, and constantly reinforced by using them.
    There is some pressure for muscle control to be efficient, and the motor cortex is doing a "good enough" job at it, but tends to stop a fair bit from perfection.
    By repeating certain movements and positions over and over again (e.g. during sitting work), we involuntarily strengthen connections between movements and muscles that don't make much sense lumped together.
    E.g. control of shoulders might become spuriously wired together with control of thighs (both are often tense during sitting).

    There are various mental motions which are learned in basically the same way as physical motions are:

    • You learn to calculate 12*13 by a technique such as first multiplying 10*13, keeping the result in your memory, calculating 2*13, and then adding the intermediate results together.
    • You learn that a particular memory makes you feel slightly unpleasant, and that flinching away from anything that would remind you of it takes the pain away.
    • You learn that this also works on uncomfortable chores, teaching you to keep pushing the thought of them away.
    • You learn that your father’s behavior is painful to you, and that any confidence reminds you of that, so you learn negative self-talk which blocks you from acting confident.
    • You learn that saying “no” to people reminds you of being punished for saying “no” to your parents, but that saying “yes” too often means that you are constantly fulfilling promises to other people - so you learn to avoid situations where you would be asked anything.
    • You learn that there’s something you can do in your mind to stop feeling upset, so you start ignoring your emotions and any information they might have.
    • You learn that if you feel bad about not getting the respect you want, thinking “if only I was good enough at persuasion, I would get what I want” gives you a sense of control - even though this pattern also makes you feel personally at fault when you don’t get what you want.
    • You learn that it’s rewarding to punish people who have wronged, so you always want to punish someone when something goes wrong - even if there is nobody but reality to punish.
    • You learn that it feels good to mentally punish someone who is munching too loud, but actually complaining about it would feel petty, and you’ve learned that pettiness is frowned upon. So you also learn to block the impulse to say anything out loud, but continue to get increasingly angry about the sound, causing an escalating circle of both the annoyance and the blocking ramping up in intensity.

    As with physical movements, these can form local optima that are hard to get out of. Many of them are learned in childhood, when your understanding of the world is limited. But new behaviors continue to build on top of them, so you will eventually end up with a system which could use a lot of optimization.

    If you have more introspective awareness of the exact processes that are happening in your mind, you can make more implicit assumptions conscious, causing your brain’s built-in contradiction detector to notice when they contradict your later learning. Also, getting more feedback about what exactly is happening in your mind allows you to notice more wasted motion in general.

    One particular effect is that, as Unlocking the Emotional Brain notes, the mind often makes trade-offs where it causes itself some minor suffering in order to avoid a perceived greater suffering. For example, someone may feel guilt in order to motivate themselves, or experience self-doubt to avoid appearing too confident. By employing greater introspective awareness, one may find ways to achieve their goals without needing to experience any suffering in order to do so.

    Of course, Buddhist meditation is not the only way to achieve this. Various therapies and techniques such as Focusing, Internal Family Systems, Internal Double Crux, and so on, are also methods which use introspective awareness to reveal and refactor various assumptions. Increased introspective awareness from meditation tends to also boost the effectiveness of related techniques, as well as reveal more situations where they can be employed.

    If introspective awareness is so great, why don’t we have it naturally?

    As with anything, there are tradeoffs involved. Having more introspective awareness can help fix a lot of issues… but it also comes with risks, which I assume is the reason why we have not evolved to have a lot of it all the time.

    First, it’s worth noting that even for experienced meditators, intense emotional reactions tend to shut down introspective awareness. If one of the functions of e.g. fear and anxiety is to cause a rapid response, then excessive amounts of introspective awareness would slow down that response by reducing cognitive fusion. Many emotions seem to inhibit many competing processes from accessing consciousness, so that you can deal with the situation at hand.

    Another consideration involves traumatic memories. In the beginning of the article, I suggested that anxiety is a special kind of mental object which activates particular behaviors. In general, different emotional states have specific kinds of behaviors and activities associated with them - meaning that if you have some memories which are really painful, they can become overwhelming, making it necessary to block them in order to carry on with your normal life. Meditation can be helpful for working through your trauma, but it can also bring it up before you are ready for it, to the point of requiring professional psychotherapy to get through. If you are better at noticing all kinds of subtle details in your mind, it also becomes easier to notice anything that would remind you of things you don’t want to remember. A decrease in introspective awareness seems to be a common trauma symptom, as this helps block the unpleasant memories from being too easily triggered.

    I have also heard advanced meditators mention that increased introspective awareness makes it difficult to push away pangs of conscience that they would otherwise have ignored, causing practical problems. For example, people have said that they are no longer able to eat animal products or tell white lies.

    On the other hand, extended concentration practice can also make it easier to block things which you would be better off not blocking.

    So far, this article has mostly focused on using introspective awareness to notice the content of your thoughts. But you can also use it to notice the structure of the higher-level processes generating your thoughts. Part of how you develop concentration ability is by maintaining introspective awareness of the fact that being able to concentrate on just one thing feels more pleasant than having your attention jump between many different things. This can give you an improved ability to choose what you are concentrating on… but also to selectively exclude anything unpleasant from your mind.

    For example, there was an occasion when I needed to do some work, but also had intense anxiety about not wanting to; intense enough that it would normally have made it impossible for me to focus on it. So then I tried to work, and let my introspective awareness observe the feeling of head-splitting agony from my attention alternating between the work and the desire not to… and to also notice that whenever my attention was on the work, I felt temporarily better.

    After a while of this, the anxiety started to get excluded from my consciousness, until it suddenly dropped away completely - as if some deeper process had judged it useless and revoked its access to consciousness. And while this allowed me to do the work that I needed to, it also felt internally violent, and like it would be too easy to repress any unpleasant thoughts using it. I still use this kind of technique on occasion when I need to concentrate on something, but I try to be cautious about it.

    The negative side of being able to get better feedback about your mental processes, is that you can also get better feedback on exactly how pleasant wireheading feels. If you like to imagine pleasant things, you can get better and better at imagining pleasant things, and excluding any worries about it from your consciousness. Meditation teacher Daniel Ingram warns:

    Strong insight and concentration practice, even when that practice wasn’t dedicated to the powers, can make people go temporarily or permanently (or for the rest of that lifetime) psychotic. The more the practice involves creating experiences that diverge significantly from what I will crudely term “consensus reality”, and the longer one engages in these practices, the more likely prolonged difficulties are. It is of note that a significant number of the primary propagators of the Western magickal traditions became moderately nuts towards the ends of their lives.
    As one Burmese man said to Kenneth, “My brother does concentration practice. You know, sometimes they go a little mad!” He was talking about what can sometimes happen when people get into the powers. [...]
    I remember a letter from a friend who was on a long retreat in Burma and was supposed to be doing insight practices but had slipped into playing with these sorts of experiences. He was now fascinated by his ability to see spirit animals and other supernormal beings and was having regular conversations with some sort of low-level god that kept telling him that he was making excellent progress in his insight practice—that is, exactly what he wanted to hear. However, the fact that he was having stable visionary experiences and was buying into their content made it abundantly clear that he wasn’t doing insight practices at all, but was lost in and being fooled by these.

    Now, it should be pointed out that “being able to exclude anything unpleasant from your consciousness” is only going to be a worry for advanced practitioners who spend a lot of time on the kind of practice that inclines you towards these kinds of risks. Before you get to the point of something like this being a risk, you will get to resolve a lot of internal conflicts and old issues first.

    Here is Culadasa, the author of The Mind Illuminated, being interviewed about this kind of a “first you resolve a lot of issues, but then you can get the ability to push down the rest” dynamic:

    Michael Taft: … and you’re using the meditation practice to help work with your stuff. But what about the other case that we both know of where people have reached very high levels of meditative capacity, they’ve got a lot of insight, maybe they’re at some level of awakening, and they seem to have, in a way, missed a whole pocket of material, or several pockets of material. It’s like they think they’re doing fine, but maybe everyone around them is aware that they’ve got these behavior patterns that do not seem awake at all. And yet the meditation has somehow missed that.
    Culadasa: Yes, yes. [...] ... there seems to be a certain level of the stuff that we’re talking about that it’s necessary to deal with to achieve awakening, but it’s sort of a minimal level. [...] What I think that is indicative of is that if that hasn’t been sufficiently dealt with earlier, it has to get dealt with in one way or another at that point. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to get resolved; it may just get reburied a little more deeply.
    Michael Taft: Pushed out of the way.
    Culadasa: Yeah, pushed out of the way, or bypassed in some way. That allows a person to go ahead and [progress] and it’s unrealistic to think that everything has been resolved. [...] a lot of the things that change [...] actually help to push these things aside, to bypass them in one way or another, whereas before somebody has [made as much progress] these would have been sufficiently problematic in their life that, in one way or another, they would be aware of them, whether or not they did anything about them or were at a place of just taking for granted that I have these, quote, “personality characteristics” that are a bit difficult.

    I used to be very enthusiastic about TMI’s meditation system. I still consider it important and useful to make progress on, but am slightly more guarded after some of my own experiences, hearing about the experience of a friend who reached a high level in it, reading some critiques of its tendency to emphasize awareness of positive experiences [1 2], and considering both the interview quoted above and Culadasa’s subsequent actions. (That said, the focus on positive experiences can be a useful counterbalance for people who start off with an overall negative stance towards life.)

    I continue to practice it, and would generally find it safe until you get to around the sixth or so of its ten stages, at which point I would suggest starting to exercise some caution. Off the couch, I mostly don’t do much concentration practice (except in a context where I would need to concentrate anyway). Rather I try to focus my introspective awareness towards just observing my mind without actively interfering with it, Internal Family Systems -style practice, and other activities that do not seem to risk excluding too much unpleasant material.

    Finally, developing too much awareness into your mind may cause you to start noticing contradictions between how you thought it worked, and how it actually works. I suspect that a part of how our brains have evolved to operate, relies on those differences going unnoticed. This gets us to the topic of enlightenment, which I have not yet discussed, but will do in my next post.

Speaking of Troy, they escaped vs. Scotia last year, but I don't think the Tartans will sneak up on Troy this time. The beatdown issued to Albany was a message to Scotia, IMPO. Thinking of a possible rematch with Amsterdam in the semi-finals, since Troy won't see Burnt Hills unless both teams make it to the Super Bowl.

    Inauguração da EMEIEF “Professor Osmar Genovez” é marcada por emoção em Tupã

     Cache   

    Escola já está atendendo cerca de 190 alunos. O Núcleo “Raul de Mello Senra” e a EMEIEF “Professor Osmar Genovez” foram inaugurados pela Prefeitura de Tupã, por meio da Secretaria Municipal de Educação, na noite desta quarta-feira (30). A escola localizada na Rua 15 de Novembro, nº 52, já atende cerca de 190 alunos. A solenidade de inauguração contou com a presença da população, familiares dos homenageados, vereadores Gilberto Neves Cruz, Osmídio Fonseca Castilho, Renan Pontelli, Charles dos Passos, Telma Tulim, Israel Veloso e Alexandre Scombatti, além do prefeito Caio Aoqui. Escola já está atendendo cerca de 190 alunos Prefeitura de Tupã/Divulgação Raul de Mello Senra Bisneto, representando a família de um dos homenageados, destacou a emoção e a honra que tem de fazer parte da quarta geração de Raul de Melo Senra, que em 2020 completa 150 anos. “Emocionei-me ao fazer o discurso alusivo ao meu bisavô Raul de Melo Senra, um benemérito que contribuiu muito para o desenvolvimento de Tupã. Quando ele chegou a Tupã, a cidade ainda não estava totalmente formada, desencadeou a abertura da nossa fazenda e depois surgiu o município de Tupã. Desde então, até sua morte, meu avô procurou ajudar ativamente no desenvolvimento da cidade”, comentou. Já Osmar Genovez Junior, filho de Osmar Genovez, salientou que o sonho de seu pai sempre foi fomentar ainda mais a educação, pois a vida inteira trabalhou nesta área. “Meu pai sempre frisou que não queria de forma alguma que um dia todo o trabalho que ele fez em Tupã fosse em vão, e na reinauguração, ver a homenagem a ele, sem dúvidas, é tudo que sempre sonhou. Foi indiscutível a emoção e alegria de todos os presentes”, destacou. Já o secretário municipal de Educação, professor Valdir Berti, disse que a escola, no período em 1 ano e 2 meses, teve um investimento de mais de R$ 1 milhão com toda a infraestrutura, adequações, material mobiliário e pedagógico. Representando o Legislativo, o vereador Alexandre Scombatti disse que o município investe muito em educação e que este é o caminho. “Vale destacar que assim que assumimos o legislativo, fizemos a indicação para que esta escola fosse totalmente reformada, além de possuir o ensino SESI. Será uma escola com material diferenciado, quem ganha é a população, os alunos e a comunidade”, destacou o parlamentar. Para o vereador Charles dos Passos, a reinauguração de uma escola que ficou quase 18 anos sem uso foi um momento de muita alegria e satisfação. “O local possui um grande espaço. Esta é mais uma oportunidade de os alunos terem equipamentos de qualidade para a educação, tendo em vista que a educação modifica as pessoas, e as pessoas modificam o mundo. Nossas crianças são o futuro da nossa nação”, falou. O prefeito Caio Aoqui destacou a alegria de entregar esta importante obra para o município no mês de aniversário da cidade. “Para nós do poder público é muito gratificante entregar um núcleo educacional como este, reivindicado há muitos anos”, frisou. Caio agradeceu ainda a todos os envolvidos na inauguração da escola. “Quero agradecer todos os secretários que estiveram envolvidos para a entrega desta obra, além da presença e apoio da população, alunos, vereadores e secretários”, agradeceu.
              

    Mãe e filha são presas acusadas de assassinato em Anajatuba; vítima é o ex-companheiro

     Cache   


    A polícia civil do Maranhão, por meio da Delegacia Regional de Itapecuru, prendeu Adriana Marinho Martins, em cumprimento a mandado prisão preventiva, e apreendeu adolescente J.M.C., de 17 anos, em cumprimento de internação.

    A operação policial foi realizada na terça-feira (05) no bairro São Benedito, em Anajatuba, a 137 km de São Luís, e contou com o apoio da equipe de investigação local.

    As duas mulheres, que são mãe e filha, são acusadas dos crimes de homicídio e associação criminosa. A vítima foi identificada como Augusto Cassius Gonçalves Costa, ex-companheiro e pai, respectivamente, de ambas.

    Augusto foi executado com seis disparos de arma de fogo no mês de janeiro, em sua residência, no povoado São José, zona rural de Anajatuba.

    Essa ação policial é complemento da operação Cifra Negra que resultou nas prisões de Helton Melônio Pereira e Franciomar Costa Travassos, diretamente ligados ao assassinato de Augusto Costa. Eles foram contratados para executar o crime.

    Criminosos são presos com fardamento exclusivo da PM e cocaína em São Luís

     Cache   


    A Policia Civil do Maranhão, por meio da Superintendência Estadual de Investigações Criminais (Seic), prendeu em flagrante, na tarde de terça-feira (05), no bairro Anil, em São Luís,  Matheus Pinho Costa, de 21 anos, e Hilton José da Piedade Cardoso, de 29 anos, pelos crimes de tráfico de drogas e associação para o tráfico.

    Segundo informações da polícia, Departamento de Combate ao Crime Organizado (DCCO) da SEIC já vinha investigando os criminosos, apontados como pertencentes a uma quadrilha responsável pela distribuição de drogas na região do bairro Anil e adjacências.

    Com os presos, foram encontradas mais de 80 gramas de cocaína, avaliada em cerca de R$ 4 mil, além de uma balança de precisão, utilizada no preparo da substância entorpecente.

    Em um dos imóveis, os policiais encontraram três gandolas com símbolos da PMMA, referente às patentes de coronel e soldados, uma boina e duas capas de coletes balísticos com identificação plástica da corporação.

    As investigações apontam que estas vestimentas, de uso exclusivo da Polícia Militar do Maranhão, vinham sendo utilizadas por membros de facções criminosas para o cometimento de roubos, extorsões a comerciantes da área e ataques a membros de grupos rivais.

    Depois dos procedimentos legais, os dois foram encaminhadas ao Complexo Penitenciário de Pedrinhas, onde permanecerão à disposição da Justiça.

    Envolvido em atropelamento e morte de vigilante é baleado em borracharia no Jardim São Cristóvão 2

     Cache   
    ]

    O homem identificado como Paulo Antônio Viegas Silva foi atingido por dois disparos de arma de fogo, na tarde dessa terça-feira (05), em uma borracharia na Avenida 1-C, no Jardim São Cristóvão 2.

    Os tiros o atingiram nas costas e foram disparados por dois homens que estavam em uma motocicleta. Eles ainda foram perseguidos por um amigo de Paulo Silva, mas conseguiram fugir.

    Ele foi socorrido e levado para o hospital Clementino Moura, o Socorrão 2, onde está internado. A suspeita é de que o crime tenha sido motivado por vingança em função do envolvimento de Paulo Antônio na morte do vigilante Ricardo Pereira.

    Paulo Silva é sobrinho de Carlos André Farias Viegas, de 38 anos, conhecido como “Dedeu”, o principal suspeito de atropelar e matar o vigilante Ricardo Bruno Costa Pereira, na noite do último sábado (02), na Cidade Operária. Paulo estaria no veículo Astra de placas DFN-3825, que atropelou e matou o vigilante.

    Na tarde de segunda-feira (04) teria se apresentou na Delegacia Especial da Cidade Operaria onde foi ouvido acerca da morte do vigilante e depois liberado por não ter mandado de prisão. A polícia vai esclarecer quem realmente estava dirigindo o veículo.

    Um motorista e um bandido morreram em uma tentativa de assalto a um ônibus, por volta das 2h40 da madrugada desta quarta-feira (06), em Zé Doca, a 311 km de São Luís. 

    O ônibus, que pertence à empresa Jamjoy e fazia a linha Belém/PA-São Luís, foi interceptado por cinco criminosos nas proximidades do Km 190 da BR-316, entre os povoados Josias e Fortaleza.

    O ônibus transportava 11 passageiros adultos e dois motoristas.  No momento do roubo, os assaltantes dispararam tiros contra o motorista Haroldo Setúbal Ferreira, de 35 anos e natural de Martinópole/CE. Ele morreu no local do assalto.

    Um policial militar que estava no ônibus disparou tiros contra um dos assaltantes, identificado apenas como “Xeique”, natural da cidade de Codó, que seria residente em Zé Doca. Ele também morreu no local. Os outros assaltantes conseguiram se evadir.

    As guarnições da PM resgataram os passageiros e levaram os corpos, com auxílio de uma funerária, ao hospital. A delegada de plantão foi acionada para adotar as providências cabíveis.

    Os policiais militares fizeram incursões e cerco em toda a região do acidente, mas não conseguira localizar os outros assaltantes.

    Presa quadrilha especializada em roubo a bancos na modalidade “sapatinho”

     Cache   


    A Polícia Civil do Maranhão, por meio da Superintendência de Investigações Criminais (Seic), prendeu, na tarde da última sexta-feira (1º), oito integrantes de uma quadrilha especializada em roubo a bancos, na modalidade “sapatinho”.

    Os presos foram identificados como Anderson da Silva Viana, conhecido como "Dudu", Ronildo Freitas Mendes, o "Indio Bravo", Moisés Lopes De Moraes, Pedro Alves Sousa Oliveira, o "Pedrinho", Lucas Cardoso Assunção, Wanderson Aguiar Da Luz, o "Juninho", Cleidiane Cordeiro Da Silva, a "Loura" e o menor J.P.A.S.

    Eles foram surpreendidos pelos policiais no momento em que se preparavam para praticar o crime de extorsão mediante sequestro contra funcionários de uma instituição financeira na cidade de Poção de Pedras, a 316 km de São Luís.

    Foram apreendidos dois revólveres, uma pistola, uma escopeta e aparelhos celulares.

    De acordo com informações da polícia, Anderson Viana, o "Dudu" já possuía mandados de prisão pelas comarcas de Timon e Buriticupu. Já Ronildo Mendes, o "Índio Bravo", é foragido da Justiça do Estado do Pará, onde responde a vários processos criminais.

    Após autuação, os presos foram encaminhados ao Complexo Penitenciário de Pedrinhas, onde ficarão à disposição da Justiça.

    A operação para desarticular essa quadrilha contou com o apoio das Delegacias Regionais de Bacabal e Pedreiras, além do apoio operacional do Centro Tático Aéreo (CTA) e do COSAR.

    O roubo na modalidade “sapatinho”

    No assalto na modalidade “sapatinho”, funcionários do banco e seus familiares são sequestrados para facilitar a invasão de agências sem chamar atenção.

    Geralmente uma parte da quadrilha faz a família refém, enquanto um dos bandidos segue com o funcionário à agência, com o objetivo de se apropriar de dinheiro.


    Após o roubo, os reféns e o funcionários são libertados em algum lugar distante da cidade.

    Acidi grassi polinsaturi omega-3: quale utilità?

    Riassunto

    Gli acidi grassi polinsaturi a catena lunga rappresentano una componente alimentare necessaria per il normale metabolismo cellulare. Quelli della classe ω-3, utilizzati da oltre 35 anni per il trattamento di alcune dislipidemie e par la prevenzione del reinfarto, sono stati recentemente oggetto di discussioni relativamente alla reale utilità in quest’ultima indicazione ma anche alla possibile efficacia in indicazioni completamente diverse.

    Summary

    Polyunsatured long-chain fatty acids are a component of diet essential for cellular metabolism. Omega-3 PUFA in the last 35 years were widely prescribed for treating hypertriglyceridemia and for secondary prevention of myocardial infarction. Recently, questions were posed on the thrue efficacy in the latter indication,  but also on possible utility in other indications. 

     

    Nel 1976 uno studio condotto su Eschimesi Inuit dimostrò che nei soggetti residenti in Groenlandia la frequenza delle malattie cardiovascolari era inferiore rispetto a quella osservata in soggetti della stessa etnia residenti in paesi industrializzati (5). Il fenomeno fu attribuito alle differenti abitudini alimentari, in particolare al maggior quantitativo di pesce consumato e quindi degli acidi carbossilici, noti come acidi grassi polinsaturi (PolyUnsatured Fatty Acids, PUFA) assunti dai soggetti residenti in Groenlandia. Da questa osservazione originò un rinnovato interesse per gli acidi grassi essenziali, che erano stati identificati negli anni trenta ma che erano stati oggetto di studio solo come fattori necessari all’accrescimento umano e animale.

    L’esistenza di un rapporto tra l’alimentazione e il rischio di reinfarto trovò conferma alla fine degli anni ’80 dai risultati dello studio  Diet and Reinfarction, che prese in esame il consumo di pesce, grassi e fibre (9). L’interesse per i PUFA crebbe con i risultati dello studio condotto 10 anni dopo dal Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell’Infarto miocardico (GISSI) (27). Questo studio, condotto su 11.324 pazienti con recente infarto del miocardio, dimostrò una riduzione del 15% del rischio combinato di letalità, infarto non fatale e ictus nei soggetti trattati per tre anni con 1 g/die di PUFA ω-3 a catena lunga (EPA e DHA). In particolare, il rischio di letalità cardiovascolare risultò ridotto del 30% e quello di morte improvvisa del 45%. Un secondo studio (28), effettuato somministrando per un periodo medio di 3,9 anni 1 g/die di PUFA ω-3 a 6.975 pazienti con insufficienza cardiaca cronica, dimostrò che il trattamento si associava con una moderata riduzione  dei ricoveri  per malattie cardiovascolari e della letalità per tutte le cause. Nel Japan Eicosapentaenoic acid Lipid Intervention Study (JELIS) , condotto per 4,6 anni su 18.645 soggetti ipercolesterolemici di entrambi i sessi trattati con statine, la somministrazione di 1,8 g/die di acido eicosapentaenoico (EPA) si associò ad una riduzione del 19% di eventi coronarici maggiori non fatali, ma non degli eventi fatali (66). Questa apparente limitata efficacia di EPA potrebbe però essere attribuita al fatto che la popolazione in esame faceva ampio uso di alimenti ittici ed aveva quindi elevati valori basali di PUFA . Molti altri studi, condotti in popolazioni e con modalità differenti, hanno successivamente confermato il beneficio dell’alimentazione ittica e dei supplementi a base di PUFA (ω-3 a catena lunga 47).

    Ma, più recentemente,  alcune ricerche hanno portato a risultati molto differenti. Secondo una metanalisi condotta su 10 studi clinici relativi a 69.480 pazienti ha mostrato che i soggetti trattati con PUFA ω-3 non hanno presentato  significativa riduzione della letalità per tutte le cause, della morte cardiaca, della morte improvvisa, dell’infarto miocardico e dell’ictus cerebrale (53). Anche lo studio randomizzato in doppio cieco ORIGIN, condotto su 12.536 soggetti ad alto rischio cardiovascolare e intolleranza glicidica o diabete mellito, ha dimostrato che la somministrazione per 6,2 anni di 1 g/die di PUFA ω-3 non si è associata ad alcuna significativa riduzione di rischio (50).

    Ugualmente deludenti i risultati di uno studio, effettuato in Italia, su 12.512 pazienti con malattia aterosclerotica o con molteplici fattori di rischio cardiovascolare seguiti da 860 medici di Medicina generale. I pazienti sono stati trattati con 1 capsula/die contenente 1 g di PUFA ω-3 o 1 g di olio di oliva quale placebo per 5 anni. La letalità e morbosità cardiovascolari non hanno mostrato significative differenze nei due gruppi di pazienti (52). Questo studio è stato criticato per l’uso come placebo di olio di oliva in quanto contenente PUFA, ma la critica appare inconsistente considerando l’elevato uso di olio di oliva nel nostro paese (stimato in oltre 30 g/die).

    I contrastanti risultati di questi studi hanno determinato incertezze e dubbi, che in Italia hanno portato dapprima alla modificazione della prescrivibilità dei PUFA ω-3 che, con determinazione AIFA del 26/4/2013 venne limitata al trattamento di secondo livello dei soggetti con iperlipidemia familiare combinata e dei pazienti con insufficienza renale media-grave e ipertrigliceridemia > 500 mg/dl; con la stessa determinazione fu infatti annullata la prescrivibilità a scopo di prevenzione secondaria nei soggetti con pregresso infarto del miocardio. Ma in data 22/11/2013 la prescrivibilità è stata ripristinata per i pazienti con sindrome coronarica acuta con innalzamento di ST o con aumento dei biomarcatori verificatasi nei 90 giorni precedenti.

    Per comprendere i motivi di queste  incertezze è utile ricordare brevemente il significato biologico dei PUFA. Questi vengono distinti, in base alla assenza o presenza nella molecola di doppi legami, in saturi e rispettivamente insaturi (mono- o polinsaturi secondo il numero dei doppi legami localizzati in corrispondenza degli atomi di carbonio). Il numero dei doppi legami è un fattore determinante, poiché da esso dipendono le caratteristiche funzionali dei PUFA, quali la  fluidità delle membrane cellulari in cui essi sono contenuti, l ’attività dei sistemi cellulari di trasporto e degli enzimi legati alla membrana come anche la suscettibilità alla perossidazione dei lipidi. I PUFA a catena lunga, in particolare, sono i precursori di molecole-segnale che a seconda della struttura (ω-3 ovvero ω-6) intervengono in molteplici processi fisiologici, in particolare quelli infiammatori e immunitari, e condizionando la formazione delle VLDL e dei trigliceridi.

    I PUFA sono acidi grassi essenziali, cioè non prodotti dai mammiferi che mancano degli enzimi necessari a inserire il doppio legame, il cui apporto è indispensabile per il normale svolgimento delle  funzioni biologiche fondamentali sopra ricordate. Al contrario dei mammiferi, alcuni vegetali, e in particolare  le alghe unicellulari presenti nel fitoplancton, sono in grado di sintetizzare vari PUFA che quindi passano nei pesci che si cibano di queste alghe. Per inciso, è questo il motivo per cui apporto di PUFA non si ha dai pesci allevati ma solo da quelli pescati in mare.

    Le famiglie di PUFA più importanti per il metabolismo umano sono quelle denominate omega-6 (ω-6 o n-6) e omega-3 (ω-3 o n-3). Questa denominazione è basata sulla disposizione del primo doppio legame a partire dal terminale Carbonio (Carbonio ω o Carbonio n). Nelle due famiglie il primo doppio legame si trova quindi nel sesto (ω-6) e rispettivamente nel terzo (ω-3) rango. Tutti i doppi legami sono in configurazione cis,  vale a dire i due atomi di idrogeno che vi sono contenuti si trovano dalla stessa parte del piano formato dal doppio legame. Nell’uomo la presenza di particolari enzimi (reduttasi ed elongasi)  permette la produzione di vari PUFA a catena lunga a partire dall’acido linoleico per la serie ω-6 e dall’acido linolenico per la serie ω-3.

    La denominazione completa di un PUFA, prendendo ad esempio l’ac. α-linolenico (Fig.1), è rappresentata come segue:

    Fig. 1 Ac. α-linolenico (ALA) [acido octadecatrienoico]: (18:3; ω-3; all-cis 9,12,15

     La prima cifra indica il numero di atomi di carbonio da cui la molecola è costituita e la seconda il numero di doppi legami; seguono la posizione del primo doppio legame a partire dal terminale ω e successivamente la configurazione (in questo caso cis) e infine la posizione dei doppi legami a partire dal terminale α.  (15). Un elenco dei PUFA ω-3 è riportato nelle tabelle 1 e 2.

    I principali PUFA ω-3,  presenti  quasi esclusivamente nei pesci, sono EPA e DHA; i principali PUFA ω-6, per contro, sono contenuti negli oli vegetali e nelle carni e sono rappresentati da GLA e AA.

    Una volta ingeriti con gli alimenti, i PUFA ω-6 e ω-3 competono per uno stesso sistema di enzimi, rappresentati da desaturasi e da elongasi, che determinano allungamento e desaturazione delle molecole con la formazione di derivati bioattivi (Fig. 2). Questa competizione per  uno stesso sistema enzimatico fa sì che il rapporto quantitativo tra i  derivati delle due famiglie  di PUFA corrisponda a quello dei PUFA assunti con gli alimenti.

    La prima tappa della biotrasformazione dei PUFA dipende dall’intervento di una Δ6 desaturasi che, pur avendo  maggiore affinità per ALA che per LA, è utilizzata soprattutto per la catena dei composti ω-6 in quanto prevalenti rispetto agli ω-3 nella alimentazione. Per questo motivo nell’uomo la produzione di EPA e DHA è molto modesta; i livelli di questi PUFA dipendeono soprattutto dall’apporto alimentare, in particolare dal consumo di pesci (31), il cui contenuto in  EPA e DHA, derivante come già detto dal consumo di alghe e di plancton,  è particolarmente elevato per maccarelli, salmoni, aringhe, alici e sardine (1).

    I PUFA ω-3 e ω-6 svolgono numerose funzioni vitali nell’organismo umano. Quali componenti dei fosfolipidi strutturali di membrana modulano il signaling cellulare, le interazioni tra cellule e, come già ricordato, la fluidità delle membrane stesse. Influenzano inoltre il sistema immunitario agendo come precursori di metaboliti eicosanoidi sintetizzati a partire dai PUFA ω-6 (Ac. arachidonico) e ω-3 (EPA) che per l’intervento di Cicloossigenasi (COX) e Lipoossigenasi (LOX) e vengono trasformati nelle prostaglandine immunomodulatrici Trombossano(TX) e leucotrieni (LX).

    Questi processi di biotrasformazione coinvolgono preferenzialmente i PUFA ω-3, al cui apporto - per la già ricordata competizione enzimatica - fa riscontro una minor generazione degli eicosanoidi derivati da Ac. arachidonico ed un aumento degli eicosanoidi derivati da EPA e di DHA, caratterizzati da capacità antiinfiammatoria, che si oppone a quella proinfiammatoria dei derivati di Ac. arachidonico (7, 60). La capacità antiflogistica dei PUFA ω-3, che determinano riduzione degli eicosanoidi infiammatori, di citochine (Interleukina 1 e, interleukina 6, TNF-alfa),di molecole di adesione e delle specie reattive dell’ossigeno, dipende da meccanismi diretti, (inibizione del metabolismo dell’acido arachidonico) e indiretti (alterata espressione di geni infiammatori per inibizione dei fattori di trascrizione e produzione di mediatori antiinfiammatori come  le resolvine) (10).

     

     

    I meccanismi mediante i quali i PUFA ω-3  possono influenzare le funzioni dell’apparato cardiovascolare esercitando una protezione antiaterosclerotica  sono stati oggetto di una esauriente e recente rassegna si Dessi et al (16). In sintesi, l’incorporazione di EPA e DHA nelle membrane cellulari ne condiziona l’organizzazione, la permeabilità e la fluidità; modifica inoltre l’attività di proteine e strutture transmembrana tra cui recettori, enzimi e canali ionici- In particolare l’azione sui canali di potassio, sodio e calcio modula l’eccitabilità e la contrattilità dei miociti. Questi effetti appaiono svolti soprattutto da DHA. Questo PUFA influenza inoltre il sistema adrenergico e la liberazione di ATP dall’endotelio con aumento della produzione di NO; queste azioni, insieme alla riduzione dei livelli di noradrenalina, spiegano gli effetti antiaritmico, antiipertensivo e bradicardizzante di DHA. Anche la variabilità della frequenza cardiaca, che costituisce un fattore predittivo di morte improvvisa e di aritmie, appare correlato positivamente con i livelli plasmatici di PUFA ω-3. Il benefico effetto di questi derivati nei confronti delle malattie cardiovascolari, e in particolare della malattia coronarica,   viene attribuito anche alla capacità di proteggere la funzione endoteliale (18), di ridurre la produzione di trombina  e di rendere meno stabile il coagulo fibrinico (23). I PUFA ω-3, inoltre, potenziano l’effetto dei farmaci antiaggreganti (22, 39).

    I risultati del già citato studio sugli Eschimesi hanno dato luogo a numerose ricerche sul ruolo fisiologico dei PUFA e sulle conseguenze di variazioni dell’apporto alimentare o aggiuntivo di queste sostanze, con particolare attenzione al rapporto fra derivati ω-3 e ω-6. Queste indagini  hanno dimostrato che i PUFA ma possiedono numerose proprietà pleiotropiche e sono state oggetto di ampie rassegne fui si rimanda (12, 16). In questa sede verranno sinteticamente riassunte le conoscenze relative al ruolo dei PUFA non solo nelle malattie cardiovascolari,  ma anche metaboliche, respiratorie, articolari, neoplastiche e psichiche (13, 33,35, 36, 37). La responsabilità dei PUFA in tutte queste condizioni sarebbe rappresentata da un deficit relativo di ω-3 con eccesso di ω-6, con conseguente accumulo nelle cellule di mediatori appartenenti alle due  famiglie di acidi grassi nelle stesse proporzioni in cui sono assunte con l’alimentazione  (37:). A questo proposito è da rilevare che dal XX secolo i profondi cambiamenti nella produzione e nella promozione degli alimenti ha indotto un aumento del consumo di derivati ω-6 più che di ω-3 rispetto al passato; questo fenomeno, rilevato dapprima negli USA, si è esteso a tutti i paesi occidentali e, più recentemente, anche a quelli emergenti e in via di sviluppo.

     

    DISLIPIDEMIE

    La prima applicazione clinica dei PUFA ω-3 fu quella ipolipemizzante. L’effetto riguarda prevalentemente i trigliceridi la cui riduzione, che può giungere in misura dose-dipendente fino al 30%, deriva da ridotta sintesi epatica e da aumentato catabolismo delle VLDL.  I PUFA ω-3 determinano inoltre riduzione della lipemia post-prandiale, lieve aumento delle HDL ed anche delle LDL; quest’ultimo effetto sarebbe perς favorevole in quanto riferibile ad un aumento del volume anzichι del numero di queste particelle, la cui lesivitΰ θ  inversamente proporzionale alle dimensioni (59, 42). Per queste caratteristiche, che si associano a buona tollerabilitΰ e assenza di rilevanti interazioni farmacologiche,  I PUFA  ω-3 trovano indicazione nelle ipertrigliceridemia primarie e secondarie (55 ). Ne è stata inoltre dimostrata l’efficacia in soggetti con steatoepatite non alcoolica, condizione spesso associata a malattie cardiovascolari, sindrome metabolica  e diabete mellito (43)-

     

    ARITMIE

    Alcuni grandi studi clinici controllati (DART, GISSI, GISSI HF)  (9 , 40, 62) hanno dimostrato che il trattamento con PUFA ω-3 riduce il rischio di aritmie ed aumenta la sopravvivenza di soggetti infartuati e di pazienti con insufficienza cardiaca su base ischemica. Questi favorevoli risultati non hanno trovato conferma nello studio Alpha Omega (34 ), condotto  su soggetti anziani infartuati fino a 4 anni prima dell’inizio del trattamento con  PUFA ω-3 . Questa discordanza di risultati potrebbe essere spiegata con la minore entità della dose di ω-3 somministrata in questo studio, dal più tardivo inizio del trattamento e dall’uso di altri PUFA nel gruppo di controllo. I PUFA ω-3 svolgerebbero forse  una azione protettiva contro le aritmie in soggetti portatori di defibrillatori impiantabili, mentre non sembrano ridurre la ricorrenza di fibrillazione dopo cardioversione elettrica (8,19).

     

    IPERTENSIONE ARTERIOSA

    Secondo una metanalisi condotta su 36 studi clinici randomizzati la somministrazione di PUFA ω-3 si associa ad una lieve riduzione della pressione arteriosa (- 2,1 mm Hg per la sistolica, -1,6 mm Hg per la diastolica). Gli autori, considerando che la riduzione dei valori pressori osservata in questa metanalisi è minore rispetto a quella rilevata in singoli studi, attribuiscono la differenza al fatto che in alcune delle indagini da essi prese in esame i PUFA sono stati somministrati in forma non purificata e/o a bassa dose, mentre in altri la pressione arteriosa non era compresa tra gli end-point maggiori (11, 25).

     

    INSUFF CARDIACA CRONICA

    Miglioramenti della frazione di eiezione ventricolare sinistra associati al trattamento con PUFA ω-3, 1 g/die, sino stati osservati  nello Studio GISSI HF (28) come anche, a dosi di 4 g/die, dopo trattamento con 4 g/die per 3 mesi (45).

    Anche in soggetti con cardiomiopatia dilatativa la somministrazione di PUFA ω-3 per un anno si è associata ad aumento significativo della frazione di eiezione ventricolare sinistra (49). A questi rilievi fa riscontro quello di una significativa riduzione della concentrazione plasmatica di peptide natriuretico atriale in uno studio condotto su soggetti trattati con 2 g/die di PUFA ω-3 (70). Questi favorevoli risultati sono stati messi in relazione con  i già ricordati effetti dei PUFA sulla funzione endoteliale e con l’’effetto antiaritmico.

     

    INSUFFICIENZA  RENALE

    In soggetti con nefropatia diabetica e da IgA la somministrazione di PUFA ω-3 si è accompagnata a diminuzione della proteinuria ed a miglioramento del quadro lipidico, mentre in pazienti dializzati il trattamento si è associata a maggior durata degli accessi vascolari. Nei soggetti nefropatici,inoltre, i PUFA esercitano un sensibile effetto antiipertensivo (46) ed una elevata efficacia ipotrigliceridemizzante (21, 65,67)

     

    MALATTIE NEUROLOGICHE E PSICHICHE

    I PUFA ω-3 sono presenti in elevata concentrazione nel sistema nervoso centrale dei mammiferi, dove favoriscono le attività sinaptiche, proteggono l’integrità dei neuroni in condizioni di ischemia e svolgono attività antiapoptosica (44). Per questi motivi l’effetto dei PUFA è stato valutato nei confronti del danno ischemico, del declino cognitivo senile e della demenza di Alzheimer. I discordanti risultati di queste osservazioni, dipendenti anche da disomogeneità qualitativa e quantitativa dei trattamenti,  non permettono di trarre conclusioni (2, 26,30, 51,61,63)

    Risultati in gran parte positivi sono stati invece osservati nelle sindromi depressive, in particolare in quelle di maggior gtravità, in quelle perimenopausali,in  quelle senili e in quelle che accompagnano la malattia di Parkinson. Questa azione antidepressiva sembra dipendere soprattutto da EPA, mentre DHA avrebbe effetto molto minore  (3, 14, 20, 41, 54)

     

    NEOPLASIE

    Le alterazioni della fisiologia cellulare responsabili della comparsa e dello sviluppo delle neoplasie sono rappresentate da autosufficienza dei segnali di crescita, insensibilità ai segnali inibenti la crescita, attività antiapoptosica, illimitata capacità re plicativa, angiogenesi protratta,invasività e metastatizzazione, riprogrammazione del metabolismo energetico ed inibizione della distruzione immunitaria (32). La possibile capacità dei PUFA ω-3, in particolare di EPA e DHA, di proteggere  dalle neoplasie dipenderebbe da inibizione del metabolismo di AA, interferenza con le citochine coinvolte nella genesi delle neoplasie, inibizione dell’angiogenesi e della diffusione. In particolare i PUFA svolgerebbero, insieme ad un effetto antiinfiammatorio,  una azione antitumorale mediante processi immunomodulatori capaci di modificare la produzione di LT, PG, TX e di indurre la produzione di altre molecole come le resolvine e le protectine (4, 60). Queste potenzialità dei PUFA ω-3, rilevate in studi sperimentali, non hanno trovato adeguata conferma negli studi clinici nei quali, peraltro, la valutazione dell’apporto dietetico è soggetta ad un largo margine di errore; ma l’unico studio condotto con la somministrazione di EPA e DHA ha dimostrato che questa era significativamente associata ad un risotto rischio di neoplasia mammaria, mentre il consumo dii acidi grassi monoinsaturi era significativamente associato con un rischio aumentato (57).Appare verosimile che la discordanza di risultati sia da mettere in rapporto sia con la diversità delle dosi di PUFA, sia con la frequenza di mutazioni dei geni preposti al metabolismo dei PUFA (56).

    L’efficacia dei PUFA nei confronti dell’infiammazione ha stimolato numerose ricerche miranti a stabilirne l’efficacia in condizioni morbose caratterizzate da infiammazione. Risultati positivi sono stati riportati in alcune malattie respiratorie, in particolare asma, e in molte malattie reumatologiche in cui, come nel caso dell’artrite reumatoide e del lupus sistemico, i PUFA riducono significativamente la necessità di utilizzare i FANS (12). Efficacia è stata inoltre riferita in pazienti con malattie infiammatorie intestinali (24,29, 68, 64, 58).

     

    EFFETTI AVVERSI

    L’osservazione che i PUFA ω-3 possono far aumentare il tempo di sanguinamento e quindi favorire emorragie in soggetti a rischio in quanto trattati con aspirina o anticoagulanti ovvero sottoposti a interventi su cuore o arterie ha dato luogo a vari studi clinici controllati il cui esito ha escluso questo rischio. La capacità dei PUFA ω-3 di favorire la comparsa di diabete mellito tipo 2 è stata oggetto di vari studi, che hanno fornito risultati contrastanti. Mentre lo Studio Womens’ Health Initiative ha mostrato che l’apporto di PUFA ω-3 superiore a 2 g/die  si associa ad una incidenza significativamente maggiore di diabete (17), è stato rilevato che  il DM2 è meno frequente nelle popolazioni con elevato consumo di prodotti ittici (48). Una recentissima metanalisi, condotta su studi relativi agli effetti del consumo di pesce e di prodotti a base di PUFA ω-3 non ha mostrato alcuna significativa associazione con l’incidenza di diabete, mentre ha rivelato l’esistenza di una notevole eterogeneità di risultati che comunque appaiono prevalentemente favorevoli (53, 69).

    In conclusione, a fronte di valide documentazioni di efficacia in varie condizioni morbose, il valore terapeutico o preventivo dei PUFA non è ancora ben definibile la maggior parte delle ricerche cliniche finora condotte presentano aspetti criticabili relativamente a differenze  qualitative e/o quantitative nell’alimentazione ittica, diversità genetiche, diversità in composizione e purezza dei preparati di PUFA.

    In particolare varie metanalisi, come quella di Rizos +(  ), dalle quali non risulta alcun effetto benefico dei PUFA, presentano vari aspetti discutibili: l’inserimento nelle casistiche esaminate di soggetti trattati sia con modificazioni alimentari sia con preparati di PUFA e, in questi ultimi, con dosi variabili da 1 a 6,2 g/d e con contenuto in PUFA variabile e con rapporto EPA/DHA compreso fra 0,5 e 2 (ricordiamo che nei preparati disponibili in Italia il contenuto in PUFA è non inferiore all’85% e che il rapporto EPA/DHA è compreso tra 0,5 e 1,5); in alcune casistiche, peraltro,  era somministrato solo EPA.. La durata mediana del trattamento, inoltre, era compresa tra  1 e 6,2 anni con mediana di 2 anni, quindi con alcuni studi durati troppo poco per valutare la capacità preventiva nei confronti di molte affezioni, soprattutto  cardiovascolari eneoplastiche. Altri problemi sono rappresentati dalla possibile influenza degli altri trattamenti attuati nei soggetti studiati, in particolare quelli con statine, anticoagulanti r antiaggreganti e con altri farmaci attivi sull’apparato cardiovascolare. Appare evidente la necessità di ulteriori indagini controllate condotte in popolazioni  omogenee con una stessa fonte di PUFA avente contenuto adeguato sia di EPA che di DHA nelle proporzioni standard .

    .

    FONTI ALTERNATIVE DI PUFA OMRGA-3

    L’apporto di PUFA ω-3 mediante consumo di pesce trova alcune limitazioni, rappresentate dal progressivo  depauperamento del patrimonio ittico provocato dal continuo aumento della pesca e in particolare dall’impiego di metodi che non ne rispettano l’ecosistema; un’altra importante limitazione è costituita dalla contaminazione da metilmercurio, che secondo i dati del Natural Resource Defense Council statunitense è elevatissima nei pesci predatori (fra cui Pesce spada, Cernia, Pesce specchio atlantico, Maccarello reale, Squalo, Sgombro reale) ed elevata in molti altri (fra cui Branzino, Ombrina, Halibut,  Trota di mare, Pesce serra, Tonno). In tutti i casi la concentrazione di mercurio nelle carni di questi pesci è proporzionale alle loro dimensioni: infatti gli esemplari di maggiori dimensioni divorano quelli più piccoli e il mercurio così assunto non viene eliminato. Per quanto riguarda il tonno va considerato che il contenuto in mercurio, è minore nelle confezioni in scatola poiché queste sono preparate con gli esemplari più piccoli. Basso contenuto in mercurio caratterizza invece aringhe, alici, naselli, sardine e sogliole. A questo proposito è opportuno ricordare che nelle capsule contenenti olio di pesce, disponibili in molti paesi anche europei la presenza di mercurio è trascurabile in quanto questo metallo nelle carni dei pesci è legato in grandissima parte alle proteine e ben poco alla frazione lipidica.

    I problemi legati al consumo di pesce e le incertezze sul valore dei preparati disponibili in commercio  hanno indotto a cercare fonti alternative di PUFA. Tali ricerche riguardano gli oli provenienti da vegetali (soprattutto di Boraginaceae e Primulaceae) contenenti ac. stearidonico quale precursore di EPA e soprattutto l’olio di alghe, in particolare della varietà Schizohytrium, molto ricca di DHA (38).

    Ma oltre ai vegetali e alle alghe, una risorsa è rappresentata dalle noci, particolarmente ricche in acido α-linoleico (ALA), e cioè del precursore di acido eicosapentaenoico (EPA) e di acido docosapentaenoico (DPA). Gli effetti del consumo di noci sono stati oggetto di uno studio, pubblicato nel novembre 2013,  condotto su due ampie coorti di professionisti sanitari (76.464 donne seguite per 30 anni (1980 – 2010) nel Nurses’ Health Study e 42.464 uomini seguiti per 25 anni (1986 – 2010) nel Health Professionals Follow-up Study) per un totale di oltre 3 milioni di persone-anno.

    Lo studio, nel corso del quale si sono registrati 16.200 decessi tra le donne e 11.229 tra gli uomini,  ha preso in esame il rapporto tra consumo di noci e letalità totale e causa-specifica.

    Il consumo di noci è risultato significativamente associato in misura inversa con la letalità in entrambe le coorti; questa associazione è risultata tanto più stretta quanto maggiore era il consumo settimanale di noci. L’associazione inversa è risultata ugualmente significativa per le morti provocate da neoplasia, cardiopatia e malattia respiratoria (6).

    ABSTRACT

    Lo scompenso cardiaco cronico o insufficienza cardiaca cronica è un’importante modificazione strutturale (rimodellamento) e funzionale del cuore, che nel tempo si manifesta con segni e sintomi, tra cui quelli più rilevanti sono i disturbi respiratori. Le cause sono molteplici, ma possiedono un ruolo considerevole, in un “continuum cardiovascolare”, i fattori di rischio cardiovascolare e tra questi l’ipertensione arteriosa è prevalente con un’alta percentuale.

     

    DEFINIZIONI E DIMENSIONE EPIDEMIOLOGICA DEL PROBLEMA

    Le numerose definizioni dello scompenso cardiaco cronico (o insufficienza cardiaca cronica) tendono ad evidenziare soltanto alcuni aspetti specifici di questa sindrome complessa. Nessuna definizione, anche di organizzazioni autorevoli, però può essere considerata pienamente soddisfacente, perché non esistono valori di riferimento certi della disfunzione cardiaca che possano essere impiegati in modo attendibile per identificare i soggetti con uno scompenso cardiaco.

    La diagnosi di tale patologia è attualmente basata sulla valutazione clinica, ovvero sulla storia clinica, sull’esame fisico e su appropriate indagini strumentali. Nonostante queste premesse “La Società Europea di Cardiologia” ritiene che le componenti essenziali per definire lo scompenso cardiaco debbano comprendere:

    • I sintomi dello scompenso (a riposo o durante sforzo),
    • I segni obiettivi della disfunzione cardiaca (a riposo),
    • Un’adeguata risposta alla terapia (in caso di diagnosi dubbia).

     

    Nel 1935 (Poole-Wilson) fu proposta un’interessante definizione dello scompenso cardiaco, ma sempre su base strettamente clinica E’ una sindrome clinica, causata da una cardiopatia che ha determinato anomalie strutturali o funzionali ed è caratterizzata da un tipico quadro emodinamico, renale e neuro-ormonale”.

    In precedenza nel 1933 un cardiologo (Sir Thomas Lewis)ci ricorda che “Il fulcro principale della cardiologia deve consistere nel precoce riconoscimento dello scompenso cardiaco”.

     

    La tabella 1 riporta la nota classificazione dello scompenso, secondo la New York Heart Association (NYHA), che si basa esclusivamente sui segni e sui sintomi respiratori. Questa classificazione ci fa vedere con chiarezza, attraverso quattro classi, la storia naturale dello scompenso cardiaco: dalla fase senza disturbi respiratori, ma con la terapia, ad una fase con gravi disturbi (dispnea) nonostante un appropriato trattamento farmacologico.

    Lo scompenso cardiaco, ovvero la difficoltà che ha il cuore di adempiere alle sue normali funzioni per la grave dilatazione o rimodellamento, costituisce il momento finale e comune di tutti i processi patologici a carico del miocardio e del sistema coronarico, con possibilità nel tempo di incidere sempre più in modo negativo sulla qualità della vita e sulla sopravvivenza. Proprio questa, più o meno lenta progressione verso lo scompenso per le alterazioni strutturali e funzionali con i relativi sintomi (dispnea, astenia, ecc.) e segni (edemi, rantoli, ecc.), viene generalmente definita come un continuum cardiovascolare nella storia naturale della malattia.

    La prevalenza di morbilità e di mortalità attribuite allo scompenso cardiaco è elevata, la sopravvivenza è scarsa ed il trattamento non è sempre risolutivo. Il tasso di ospedalizzazione tra i 45 ed i 64 anni è andato aumentando dall’8,2 per 10.000 nel 1971, al 33,8 per 10.000 nel 1994. Si calcola che in Italia, come negli Stati Uniti d’America, l’insufficienza cardiaca sia presente nell’1% della popolazione generale e nel 10% della popolazione anziana (>65 anni). Studi prospettici ci informano che l’incidenza dello scompenso aumenterà negli anni nelle persone con oltre 65 anni. In particolare, nel 2026 i soggetti con oltre 75 anni affetti da tale forma morbosa saranno triplicati rispetto al 1996. Nei paesi industrializzati, pertanto, rappresenta un considerevole problema di sanità pubblica.

     

     

    L’IMPORTANZA DEI FATTORI DI RISCHIO CARDIOVASCOLARE PER LO SCOMPENSO CARDIACO

    L’importate studio di “Framingham” ha posto per primo l’attenzione sui fattori di rischio cardiovascolare nel favorire lo scompenso cardiaco prima e durante il continuum cardiovascolare. Tra questi fattori (noxae patogene) sicuramente l’ipertensione arteriosa gioca un ruolo rilevante (30-40% dei pazienti è iperteso!); infatti, proprio questo studio ha dimostrato, tra l’altro, che anche a parità di livelli di pressione arteriosa il paziente iperteso con la coesistenza di una ipertrofia ventricolare sinistra (ovvero con la presenza di un altro fattore di rischio cardiovascolare) ha una prognosi peggiore rispetto al soggetto iperteso senza ipertrofia ventricolare sinistra. In particolare, desideriamo ancora sottolineare, che una coorte del Framingham Study (n=9.404) è stata seguita per 40 anni, per evidenziare quale tipologia di paziente andasse incontro allo scompenso cardiaco congestizio. Tra i soggetti di sesso maschile (n=331) e quelli di sesso femminile (n=321) che hanno sviluppato lo scompenso cardiaco, rispettivamente il 35% ed il 37% dei soggetti, erano portatori soltanto di ipertensione arteriosa, mentre il 40% di entrambi i sessi erano nel contempo ipertesi e coronaropatici. A questo proposito non possiamo tralasciare di ricordare come anche le sole malattie coronariche (macro- micro-angiopatiche), specie nei paesi industrializzati, generino insufficienza cardiaca con una percentuale intorno al 20%.

         È difficile però che un soggetto abbia un solo fattore di rischio cardiovascolare. Essi tendono prima o poi a presentarsi in maniera associata (cluster) ed integrata nelle stesse persone. In particolare, le alterazioni metaboliche sono più frequenti negli ipertesi e l’ipertensione è più frequente nei soggetti con dismetabolismi, specialmente con il diabete del 2° tipo. La Tabella 2 ci fa vedere, secondo le  Linee Guida del 2007 dell’ipertensione arteriosa, i fattori di rischio che possono favorire lo scompenso cardiaco, alcuni di essi, specie i metabolici, attraverso la via del danno aterosclerotico coronarico a livello macro- e micro-angiopatico.

                In tutti i casi è molto importante identificare precocemente e con certezza il fattore o i fattori di rischio, in modo da rallentare con appropriati trattamenti l’evoluzione verso lo stato di scompenso più o meno manifesto.

     

     

    DAI FATTORI DI RISCHIO ALLO SCOMPENSO CARDIACO

    I processi che colpiscono il cuore possono avere un esordio acuto, essere insidiosi e subdoli e/o avere una maggiore o minore base genetica. Inizialmente, se non opportunamente corretti da un’appropriata terapia, determinano un’alterazione funzionale del ventricolo sinistro (disfunzione ventricolare), che può essere sistolica, per una ridotta contrattilità del miocardio con conseguente alterato stroke volume (il cuore non si contrae sufficientemente) oppurediastolica, per un alterato rilasciamento con conseguente modificato riempimento ventricolare (il cuore non si riempie sufficientemente). In particolare, nell’iperteso queste due disfunzioni possono coesistere: ad un’iniziale alterata funzione diastolica, che si associa all’ipertrofia ventricolare sinistra (iniziale rimodellamento o modificazione della forma), si può aggiungere la disfunzione sistolica, quando il ventricolo riduce le sue proprietà contrattili (cioè diminuisce l’effetto pompa, a causa di un grave rimodellamento)(Tabella 3).

     

     

    DAL MODELLO CARDIO-RENALE A QUELLO COMPOSITO: EMODINAMICO E NEURO-ORMONALE

    Il primo modello dell’insufficienza cardiaca è stato quello della teoria cardio-renale (1950-1960 circa) ove si riteneva sostanzialmente che la ridotta compliance cardiaca non fosse in grado di garantire un accettabile ed adeguato volume ematico alle richieste dell’organismo (scompenso anterogrado). Conseguenze di tale situazione erano considerate l’edema, a causa di una ridotta escrezione idro-elettrolitica, ed il decremento dell’accoglimento del sangue verso l’atrio destro con successivo incremento della pressione intravascolare (scompenso retrogrado).

                Successivamente prende corpo il modello della teoria emodinamica o cardio-circolatoria (1960-1980 circa) che considerava l’alterazione cardiaca (noxa) causa della riduzione della forza contrattile cui faceva seguito una cronica costrizione periferica riflessa di tipo artero-venosa. Si veniva a determinare un disordine emodinamico, ovvero una costrizione venosa (aumento del pre-carico) ed una costrizione arteriosa (aumento del post-carico) con difficoltà di perfusione ad organi ed apparati ed incremento ulteriore di lavoro per il muscolo cardiaco sino allo scompenso. La riduzione della perfusione interessava pertanto i muscoli, con conseguente deficit motorio, e i reni che, attraverso la ritenzione idro-salina, favorivano gli edemi. Si effettuavano terapie centrate su farmaci inotropi positivi e vasodilatatori periferici. Questi inducevano un miglioramento clinico, ma non risolvevano il problema di fondo.

                Il modello emodinamico, tecnicamente perfetto, venne però migliorato da osservazioni scaturite dai grandi trial clinici agli inizi degli anni ’80, ove vennero affrontate, con metodiche più avanzate, le problematiche legate allo scompenso cardiaco e alle sue anormalità. La domanda che gli Autori/Ricercatori si posero era: “La terapia utilizzata era in grado di modificare la storia naturale di questa sindrome, gravata ancora da un alto tasso di mortalità”? La risposta data fu “no”: “La terapia in uso non modificava la mortalità di queste persone”. Verso la fine degli anni ’80, infatti, alcuni studi scandinavi identificarono l’uso, apparentemente illogico, dei beta-bloccanti nello scompenso cardiaco: emergeva così il concetto neuro-ormonale che arricchiva quello dello squilibrio emodinamico.Iniziarono a questo punto studi clinici con farmaci capaci di antagonizzare l’iperattività del sistema adrenergico e successivamente anche del sistema renina-angiotensina-aldosterone sull’end-point primario che era la riduzione della mortalità.I risultati chiarirono in tempi relativamente brevi che l’antagonismo verso i sistemi neuro-ormonali alterati migliorava la morbilità e la mortalità cardio-vascolare.

                In seguito furono identificati altri sistemi, variamente interagenti, che contribuivano anch’essi al decremento della funzione cardiaca (sistema nervoso parasimpatico, arginina-vasopressina, peptide natriuretico atriale, peptide natriuretico cerebrale, prostaglandine, tumor necrosis factor, endotelina, ecc.).

     

     

    I PRINCIPALI SISTEMI NEURO-ORMONALI ALTERATI

    Il sistema adrenergico (sistema simpatico) è profondamente alterato nelle sue funzioni durante il lento e progressivo divenire che porta allo scompenso cardiaco (continuum cardiovascolare), favorendo un vero e proprio rimodellamento del muscolo cardiaco (miocardio). Nel muscolo cardiaco i nervi del simpatico diventerebbero mal funzionati e potrebbero perdere la loro ordinata capacità di sintetizzare, immagazzinare e rilasciare noradrenalina.Queste condizioni favorirebbero una continua stimolazione adrenergica, con aumento del consumo di ossigeno, modificazione dell’espressione delle proteine contrattili, ipertrofia ventricolare e perdita di miociti funzionanti (anarchia adrenergica).

    L’altro sistema che viene fortemente interessato nello scompenso cardiaco è il sistema renina-angiotensina-aldosterone che è presente in molti tessuti ed organi dell’organismo. Quando il sistema viene attivato, come nello stress meccanico (da ipertensione), può sovra-esprimersi, svolgendo in tal modo alcune importanti funzioni che possono risultare “esagerate”, come la regolazione del tono dei vasi coronarici, l’azione inotropa positiva, l’azione cronotropa positiva, lo stimolo alla crescita delle cellule miocardiche (ipertrofia dei cardiomiociti) e lo stimolo alla crescita dei fibroblasti (fibrosi del miocardio). Tale condizione è in vari modi anche favorita dall’aldosterone che è presente in eccesso e che aggrava ulteriormente lo scompenso cardiaco.

    Esistono, abbiamo accennato, altre sostanze e sistemi che giocano un importante ruolo nello scompenso cardiaco, come il peptide natriuretico cerebrale (BNP), che è un marker di scompenso cardiaco (indicatore di un’elevata pressione intra-cardiaca) con un buon valore diagnostico e prognostico perché consente di monitorizzare il trattamento. A proposito di diagnosi più recentemente lo studio BACH (Biomarkers in Acute Heart Failure) ha dimostrato la non inferiorità diagnostica del MR-proANP (Mid-Regional pro-Atrial Natriuretic Peptide)(>120pmol/l) rispetto al BNP (>100 pg/ml), consentendo pure di monitorare la terapia.

     

     

    LE PRINCIPALI MANIFESTAZIONI CLINICHE DELLO SCOMPENSO CARDIACO

    Le manifestazioni cliniche possono essere così brevemente distinte, oltre, ovviamente, all’aspetto e alle condizioni generali del soggetto:

    1.     Alterazioni respiratorie:

    o   Dispnea: nelle fasi precoci compare soltanto dopo sforzo, successivamente, con l’avanzare dello scompenso si arriva ad uno stato dispnoico anche a riposo o per sforzi moderati.

    o   Ortopnea: dispnea che impedisce di rimanere in posizione supina, è una manifestazione tardiva dello scompenso cardiaco.

    o   Dispnea parossistica notturna: con l’asma cardiaco e l’edema polmonare esprime e rappresenta una grave insufficienza del ventricolo sinistro, che non riesce a mantenere un’adeguata portata cardiaca.

    o   Respiro di Cheyne-Stokes: a seguito di una diminuita sensibilità verso il centro respiratorio, vi è una fase di apnea ed una fase di respirazione (respiro periodico o ciclico).

    o   Rumori o crepitazioni da stasi polmonare, con trasudazione di fluidi negli spazi interstiziali.

    2.     Altri sintomi:

    o   Aumentata probabilità aritmica.

    o   Anemia per il decremento del flusso di sangue a livello renale  (ridotta portata cardiaca) con  conseguente ipoproduzione di eritropietina.

    o   Affaticamento e debolezza.

    o   Sintomi addominali: anoressia, nausea e dolori (prevalentemente per congestione).

    o   Sintomi cerebrali: specie gli anziani possono avvertire uno stato di confusione in relazione alla ridotta perfusione cerebrale.

    o   Ma anche: nicturia, oliguria, edemi declivi, turgore delle giugulari, ecc.

     

     

    LA LOGICA E I PRINCIPI DELLA TERAPIA

    La logica del trattamento dello scompenso cardiaco è quella di limitare l’iperfunzione neuro-ormonale (la sovra-esposizione) e di migliorare l’emodinamica. Seguendo i filoni di ricerca attuali possiamo considerare:

    ·      La riduzione dell’aumentata attività adrenergica (utilizzo di beta-bloccanti ed alfa-beta-bloccanti);

    ·      L’antagonismo delle azioni negative del sistema renina angiotensina-aldosterone (impiego di ACE-inibitori, antagonisti recettoriali dell’angiotensina II ed anti-aldosteronici).

    Per quanto riguarda gli anti-aldosteronici lo studio EMPHASIS-HF (Eplerenonein Mild Patients Hospitalization and Survival Study in Heart Failure) ha dimostrato in tempi relativamente recenti che nello scompenso cardiaco, specie se sintomatico ed unitamente al classico trattamento, può essere indicato l’utilizzo dell’eplerenone (25-50 mg/die) anche per livelli di insufficienza cardiaca molto elevata (FE <35%), che controindica l’utilizzo dei classici anti-aldosteronici.

                Secondo un sotto-progetto dello studio SHIFT (Systolic Heart failure treatment with the If inhibitor ivabradine Trial) anche l’ivabradina (derivato del verapamil) potrebbe essere utilizzata in questi casi. E’ stato dimostrato infatti che nei soggetti con scompenso cardiaco cronico, ma con un ritmo sinusale sotto-trattati o non trattati con i beta-bloccanti, l’end-point primario (morbilità o mortalità cardiovascolare per insufficienza cardiaca) risultava ridotto in modo significativo nei soggetti che erano stati trattati con ivabradina.

    Non va tuttavia dimenticata la storica terapia diuretica dell’ansa e digitalica, che peraltro, al momento attuale delle nostre conoscenze, non modifica in modo significativo la progressione verso lo scompenso cardiaco e la morte, progressione che invece è ridotta dall’antagonismo neuro-ormonale. La loro efficacia è legata essenzialmente ad un miglioramento dei segni e dei sintomi legati alla ritenzione di fluidi (edema, congestione). I diuretici dell’ansa si preferiscono se coesiste una ridotta funzione renale, altrimenti si dovrebbero impiegare i sodiuretici, e la digitale (digossina), con incremento per quest’ultimo prodotto dell’inotropismo a causa di un’aumentata concentrazione di calcio a livello delle cellule cardiache.

                Il trattamento deve anche prevedere un’energica correzione dei fattori di rischio cardiovascolare (Tabella 3), che possono alterare ulteriormente la muscolatura del cuore e il sistema delle coronarie e l’utilizzo di sostanze (nitrati) per migliorare il pre- e post-carico. Accanto alla terapia specifica dello scompenso non dobbiamo dimenticare altre terapie, come quella anticoagulante o anti-piastrinica (rischio trombo-embolico) ed anti-aritmica (20-25% dei casi).

    La terapia farmacologica, infine, deve sempre seguire ed essere accompagnata da un trattamento non farmacologico o meglio da un miglioramento dello stile di vita. Questo consiste essenzialmente in un vitto quantitativamente con poche calorie e, per qualità, orientato all’utilizzo in prevalenza di carni bianche (pesce, coniglio, tacchino, pollo e faraona), di frutta e di verdure associate ad olio extra-vergine di oliva (no vergine di oliva) e ad una ridotta assunzione del sale da cucina (4-5 g/die). Una discreta attività fisica di tipo aerobica, effettuata per almeno tre volte la settimana accompagnata da alcune passeggiate specialmente nei giorni senza attività fisica, devono completare la terapia, che in una parola può risultare e venir definita come “un eccellente stile di vita”, se eseguita nel suo insieme con scrupolo.

     


    Tabella 1 - CLASSIFICAZIONE DELLO SCOMPENSO SECONDO LA NEW YORK HEART ASSOCIATION (NYHA)
    I segni e i sintomi dello scompenso (valutazione obiettiva) possono essere utilizzati per stabilire in classi la severità della sindrome (capacità funzionale) e per monitorare gli effetti della terapia.

     

    Classe I - SCOMPENSO ASINTOMATICO
    Nessuna limitazione:l’attività fisica abituale non provoca astenia, dispnea, né palpitazioni (i pazienti devono avere segni obiettivi di disfunzione cardiaca e nell’anamnesi sintomi di scompenso ed essere in terapia con farmaci utili per porre in equilibrio funzionale lo scompenso).

    Classe II - DISPNEA PER SFORZI INTENSI
    Lieve limitazione dell’attività fisica:benessere a riposo, ma l’attività fisica abituale provoca affaticamento, dispnea, palpitazioni o angina pectoris.

    Classe III - DISPNEA PER SFORZI LIEVI
    Grave limitazione dell’attività fisica:benessere a riposo ma attività fisiche di entità inferiore a quelle abituali provocano sintomi sino a quelli di tipo coronaropatici.

    Classe IV - DISPNEA A RIPOSO
    Incapacità a svolgere qualsiasi attività senza disturbi: sintomi e segni di scompenso sono presenti anche a riposo, con aumento dei disturbi ad ogni minima attività.

    Poll: Almost 50% of UK Jews will 'seriously consider' leaving if Corbyn wins elections
    Britain's Jewish community so deeply concerned by the prospect of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn winning the next general election that community leaders have launched a campaign to undermine his premiership candidacy.

    A recent poll by the Jewish Leadership Council, a British-Jewish advocacy group, found that 47% of British Jews would "seriously consider" emigrating if Corbyn is elected prime minister.

    Some 87% of British Jews believed Corbyn to be anti-Semitic, and 90% said they will not vote for Labour, the poll found.

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the general elections, set for Dec. 12, following his failure to push the Brexit deal through Parliament. Johnson's promise to have the UK leave the European Union by Oct. 31 had been a key element in the Conservatives' leadership bid, which brought him to power in July.

    Corbyn has been repeatedly lambasted for his failure to tackle anti-Semitism within Labour. In 2018, the party received 863 complaints of anti-Semitism but took action in only 101 of those cases. Worse, Labour members who have publicly made statements such as "Jews are the problem" have remained in the party despite complaints against them.


    According to the Jewish Chronicle, prominent British Rabbi Jonathan Romain has even taken the unprecedented step of urging congregants to vote against Labour, warning that a Corbyn-led government "would pose a danger to Jewish life as we know it."

    "I should stress that the problem is not the Labour Party itself, which has a long record of fighting discrimination and prejudice, but the problem is Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn-led Labour, has at best, let antisemitism arise within its ranks, or at worst, has encouraged it," Romain wrote in a letter to the 823 families who are members of his Berkshire shul.

    "This has never happened under any previous Labour leader … so the finger of responsibility really does seem to point to Jeremy Corbyn. I am therefore suggesting we should each put aside all other considerations and vote for whichever party is most likely to defeat Labour in whatever constituency we are in – even if we would never normally vote for that party."

    Israel Advocacy Movement: Why vote Labour?
    In the upcoming election, a vote for Labour is a vote for:
    ☠️ Terrorism supporters
    🇻🇪 An economy like Venezuela
    🚫 Racism
    A vote for Labour is a vote for insanity… watch the election video Labour don't want you to see.


    Jewish Caller Tells Maajid Nawaz He Would Emigrate If Corbyn Elected
    A Jewish caller told Maajid Nawaz that he would close his business and leave the UK if Jeremy Corbyn were to become Prime Minister because of anti-Semitism.

    David, from Hendon, said: "I will leave the country as soon as Corbyn comes in, God forbid that he should.

    "I will not stay in a country where anti-Semitism is now accepted because I think, brilliantly, he and his PR people just didn't answer really, just deflected old accusations.

    Now people are fed up with hearing the word so it's almost as if it's accepted and whether that's the case or people are actually anti-Semitic in this country... I hope not but I'm beginning to have my doubts."

    He also explained that he would shut down his business of 53 people.

    He said: "I will leave, I will close down all of my businesses which I can. I've been nervous of this, I'm in the position where I'll be able to close them down.

    "These people won't be employed anymore and that's fine. I'm looking after myself and I'm sure people, some of your viewers or listeners will be saying 'good riddance, let's get rid of the guy'.

    But there are hundreds of people like me, and not all of them are Jewish, there are hundreds of wealthy people who have built up businesses who know that in the end Mr. Corbyn will take it all away from us because he doesn't appreciate people who work hard."




    Historian: New evidence shows FDR’s bigotry derailed many Holocaust rescue plans
    Not only was US president Franklin Roosevelt perfunctory about rescuing Jews from the Nazis, but he obstructed rescue opportunities that would have cost him little or nothing, according to Holocaust historian Rafael Medoff.

    FDR’s role in preventing the rescue of European Jewry is detailed in a new book called, “The Jews Should Keep Quiet: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, and the Holocaust.”

    Published in September, Medoff’s book includes new archival materials about the relationship between Roosevelt and Rabbi Stephen Wise, who the author sees as a sycophantic Jewish leader used by Roosevelt to “keep the Jews quiet.”

    Wrote Medoff, “Franklin Roosevelt took advantage of Wise’s adoration of his policies and leadership to manipulate Wise through flattery and intermittent access to the White House.” In return for visits to the White House and Roosevelt calling him by his first name, Wise undermined Jewish activists who demanded the administration let more Jewish refugees into the US.

    According to Medoff, Roosevelt’s policies toward European Jews were motivated by sentiments similar to those that spurred him to intern 120,000 Japanese Americans in detention camps as potential spies.

    “Roosevelt used almost identical language in recommending that the Jews and the Japanese be forcibly ‘spread thin’ around the country,” Medoff told The Times of Israel. “I was struck by the similarity between the language FDR used regarding the Japanese, and that which he used in private concerning Jews — that they can’t be trusted, they won’t ever become fully loyal Americans, they’ll try to dominate wherever they go.”
    Gil Troy: Mark Twain’s ‘Innocents Abroad’ explains our Israel obsession
    Twain offered his pragmatic American explanation for Palestine’s desolation: “Palestine is no more of this work-day world. It is sacred to poetry and tradition – it is dream-land.” Twain feared that Palestine induced so much stargazing no one ever rolled up their sleeves to produce anything there.

    Fortunately, the Zionist movement was starting to tap into old-new Jewish dreams to motivate hardy, hardscrabble, hardworking pioneers – much as the American dream drove Twain’s fellow Americans. This pre-Zionist book offers a core Zionist message. The Palestine Twain saw highlights the modern miracles Zionism created that we take for granted.

    STILL, IF dreams can motivate or paralyze, mythmaking can inspire – or disappoint. Sarna has long shown how Palestine as dreamland boosted modern Israel in American and Jewish eyes. Many Americans, especially American Jews, echo the pilgrims’ naivete. They romanticize Israel, falling in love with what Sarna calls a “mythical Israel,” more indicative of “American Jewish ideals” than “Israeli realities.” The Zionist dream, American-style, long celebrated an Israel that was even more progressive than America – defined by kibbutz workers, not Wall Street investors; built by new brawny Jews, not traditionally brainy Jews.

    Beware: too much mythmaking about any country – especially the world’s only Jewish state trying to survive in a Middle East hostile to Jews and democracies – is risky. As with any romance, some idealization during courtship greases the wheels of love. And Israel’s “dreamland” still dazzles most Americans. But, today, with Israel in middle age, the toxicity of faded romance often triggers an overly harsh counterreaction. Somehow, many of Israel’s jilted leftist lovers still love America while hating Donald Trump. Yet when they detest an Israeli policy or prime minister, they give up on Israel and Zionism.

    Mark Twain’s memories of being a Missouri non-Yankee in King Solomon’s court helps explain our modern obsession with Israel, too. Twain emphasizes how foundational Palestine is to the West. “Crowded with historical interest,” filled with “elegant fragments,” it still dominates our collective imaginations.

    But heed Twain’s warning. Those who believe Israel can do no right – along with those who believe Israel can do no wrong – are often telling us more about the “verdicts they brought with them” rather than their fair assessments of this rich, complex, modern democracy.

    Clearly, we have some Mark Twain-like “unlearning” to do, especially about Israel.
    Revisionist Author Tries to Distort the Record of David Ben-Gurion
    Tom Segev’s well-written biography of Israel’s first prime minister, A State At Any Cost: The Life of David Ben-Gurion, is undercut by the author’s biases and penchant for narrative.

    It would be hard to imagine Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publishing an op-ed in The New York Times on Buddhism. But back in April 1962, the first Israeli premier, David Ben-Gurion, did precisely that — but only after spending weeks studying with religious scholars as a personal guest of the prime minister of Burma, today’s Myanmar. Ben-Gurion even insisted, much to the consternation of his teachers, “that he had discovered a self-contradiction in the Buddha’s doctrine that no one else had ever noticed.” It turned out that he was wrong; it was a translation error.

    As Segev makes clear, Israel’s founding father was both exceptional and eccentric. And nearly five decades after his passing, Ben-Gurion remains iconic, with a legacy and career that are arguably unmatched in the small nation’s modern history.

    As his private secretary, Yitzhak Navon, once observed, “Without Ben-Gurion, the State of Israel would not be in existence — and this I can say about nobody.” Indeed, long before he was making history, Ben-Gurion was its avid student.

    As Segev notes: “He saw himself, and was seen by others, as an incarnation of history.” To a great extent, this was the result of the tremendous willpower that he displayed throughout his life.
    New Book Tells a Holocaust Family Mystery
    I just finished reading an extraordinary new book, House on Endless Waters by author Emuna Elon.

    From start to finish, I found it to be well-written, touching, and chock-full of character development; there were so many stories I could relate to.

    The book is a family mystery ripe with great plot twists. It explores one man’s quest — a renowned Israeli author — to visit his birthplace in Amsterdam, despite promising his late mother that he would never return to that city. And during a visit to that city’s Jewish museum, he sees a picture of his mother, pre-war, holding a child he doesn’t recognize. The book explores his adventures through Amsterdam — past, present, and future — replete with dreams, visions, and more, all in beautifully written prose.

    Throughout the book, I had memories of growing up in a home where my grandparents were Holocaust survivors, and my mom (z”l) spent so much time researching, reading, and studying about the history of our many family members who were murdered by the Nazis. She attended conferences, discovered obscure files, and spent days at Yad Vashem. In the last few months of her life, my mother learned that her father, Morris Waga, had been married with a family before he married my grandmother. He lost that wife and a three-year old daughter in the camps to the Nazis. Yet, throughout his entire life, he never told my mother or her younger brother.

    The book discusses underground networks that hid Jewish children during the war, and the burdens faced by those who survived. The scars of the Holocaust haunt families and people for generations.
    Jonathan Tobin: Can Joe Biden save the day for pro-Israel Democrats?
    The problem here for pro-Israel Democrats is that, out of necessity, they’ve hitched the fate of their cause to what right now looks like a fading star. Biden, who hasn’t won a competitive race on his own (being Barack Obama’s running mate doesn’t count) since Richard Nixon was president, has so far been a disappointment to his backers. With a focus on the effort to impeach Trump dominating the headlines this winter, it may also remind voters of his son’s questionable behavior further dragging him down.

    Nor, it should be added, is Biden coming to the issue with entirely clean hands. He was part of Obama’s eight-year-long pressure campaign against the Israeli government, as well as an ardent supporter of the disastrous 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which he still defends.

    Biden may be instinctively supportive of the Jewish state in ways that eclipse those of Warren, Sanders and Buttigieg; however, the tenor of his dialogue with Israel has always been that of an American who thinks he knows the Middle East better than Israelis. Biden received a devastating – and completely deserved – tongue-lashing from former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin at a Senate hearing in June 1982. In response to Biden’s threats of aid cuts that were hardly different from the statements of the primary opponents he now considers “outrageous,” Begin slapped him down by telling him that he was “not a Jew with trembling knees,” and that Israel would defend its principles, “and, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”

    In a competition with far more extreme critics of Israel than he ever was, Biden is the best that pro-Israel Democrats, who once dominated their party yet now seem unable to muster sufficient support for censoring or shunning anti-Semites like Omar and Tlaib, can muster. It is on his aging and uncertain shoulders that the fate of the Democrats as a pro-Israel party rests. That’s a prospect that should scare friends of the Jewish state, no matter which party they support.
    Michael Lumish: Are Arabs indigenous to Judea?
    Of course, Arabs are not indigenous to Judea / Israel. Arabs are conquerers indigenous to the Arabian peninsula. If one cares about "the conflict" -- or what I call The Long Arab / Muslim War against the Jews of the Middle East -- then one must recognize the Jews as indigenous and the Arabs and Muslims as imperialists and colonialists.

    And, yet, the progressive-left and the Democratic Party honestly believe that the Jewish defenders of Jewish children and Jewish land are the aggressors. They honestly believe that Arabs have every right to kill Jews as a matter of "resistance." It is an intelligent rhetorical strategy on par with the propaganda skill of the National Socialists.

    The brilliance behind Arab and Muslim imperialism is that they actually managed to convince the arrogant and ignorant Euros that they are the indigenous population in the lands that they conquered.
    Corbyn, a cause for concern
    Meanwhile, Johnson's main rival, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, also isn't assured of restoring his party to power for the first time since 2010. Corbyn's ideological extremism is attractive to certain strata of British society but is also a deterrent to others. Some polls find Corbyn to be the "least popular Opposition leader of the past 45 years." Even if he doesn't win, it's still theoretically possible for him to establish a "resistance coalition" against Johnson and Brexit, which would include the Liberal Democrats and Scottish separatists who oppose leaving the EU.

    Even if Labour is weakened in the upcoming election, in such a manner that Corbyn is forced to resign, he will have left behind a party that is fundamentally different than the one he inherited four years ago. Labour's far-left faction has effectively consummated its takeover of Britain's main Opposition party, essentially ridding it of all internal dissent. Under the guise of its anti-Israel and anti-Zionist worldview, Labour has normalized anti-Semitism as part of the British political landscape. Even if Corbyn goes, the devastation he leaves in his wake will be absolute.

    All efforts by the country's Jewish community and Labour's own Jewish MPs to foster dialogue with Corbyn's circle about banishing anti-Semitic activists within its ranks have floundered amid their refusal to recognize the importance of the matter. There have been cosmetic initiatives, mostly for public relations purposes, but little else. Labour under Corbyn's leadership has legitimized anti-Semitism and shown Jews that the party that first welcomed them to Great Britain – no longer cares for them.

    With a sense of humor that under the current circumstances has taken a darker turn, British Jews have altered Labour's slogan from "For the many, not for the few," to "For the many, not for the Jew." If Labour rises to power, this joke could have serious implications for all of Britain.




    Also in October: A selection of other antisemitic Incidents that we did not cover
    A swastika was spray-painted on a sign near a Jewish school in Gateshead. The graffiti appeared on the corner of High West Street and Gladstone Terrace on 7th October.

    A swastika and the words “Lewis is a Jew” were carved into the glass panel of a bus stop in East Leeds. Anyone with information should contact West Yorkshire Police on 101 referencing log number 243.

    On Shabbat, 19th October at the Clapton Common and Oldhill Street junction in Stamford Hill, three males accosted Orthodox Jews walking home from synagogue with antisemitic slurs including “Heil Hitler”.
    Alison Chabloz fails to overturn conviction over Holocaust denial at High Court, leaving no further avenue of appeal
    Moments ago, notorious antisemite and Holocaust denier Alison Chabloz has had her application for a judicial review denied by the High Court following her landmark conviction on three charges of sending grossly offensive communications via a public communications network.

    Ms Chabloz had sought to overturn her conviction on technicalities relating to the meaning of what constituted sending communications online, but the High Court denied her appeal and upheld the earlier judgment. There was confusion over the way that the case had proceeded to court as Ms Chabloz’s case was brought before judges by her barrister, Adrian Davies, who maintains his record of losing cases for neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers.

    Ms Chabloz had sought to overturn her conviction on technicalities relating to the case began as a private prosecution by Campaign Against Antisemitism, which was then continued by the Crown Prosecution Service. The charges related to three self-penned songs in which Ms Chabloz denounced a supposed Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world and attacked the Holocaust as a fraud perpetrated by Jews for financial gain.

    The conviction set a new precedent in British law, effectively delivering a landmark precedent verdict on incitement on social media and on whether the law considers Holocaust denial to be “grossly offensive” and therefore illegal when used as a means by which to hound Jews.
    Boston University set to hire anti-Israel professor
    Sarah Ihmoud, a postdoctoral associate at Boston University, is currently under consideration for a teaching position at the university, Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) reported.

    According to APT, the university has not yet made an offer to Ihmoud, but the offer is "imminent."

    Education Without Indoctrination (EWI) called for action to prevent Boston University from becoming "a platform for Jew-hate."

    Ihmoud, co-author of Sexual Violence, Women’s Bodies, and Israeli Settler Colonialism, presented the paper to BU. In it, she claims that "rape and killing of Palestinian women was a central aspect of Israeli troops' systematic massacres and evictions during the destruction of Palestinian villages in 1948" and describes Nazi-like actions, including the shooting of pregnant women and the murder of children.

    The paper also claims that that both brutality and sexual violence against Palestinian Authority women is an ongoing tactic of the IDF.
    Major Jewish Groups Applaud Twitter for ‘Belated’ Shut Down of Hamas, Hezbollah Accounts
    Major Jewish groups applauded the micro-blogging website Twitter on Sunday for suspending a series of accounts affiliated with the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

    “Thank you @Twitter for suspending the accounts of Hamas and Hezbollah,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, tweeted.

    Referring to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Greenblatt added, “US-designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations do not belong on the platform. Let’s hope all platforms follow @jack’s lead.”

    The American Jewish Committee also weighed in, pointing out that while Twitter has accepted that there is no difference between the “military” and political wings of terrorist groups, the European Union continues to separate the two.


    The Simon Wiesenthal Center responded by tweeting, “Belated but welcome anti-terrorist moves by @Twitter — hope others will follow.”
    BBC ignores Twitter’s terror groups suspensions
    To date, those searching for coverage of that story under the BBC News website’s ‘social media’ and ‘Twitter’ tags will find nothing.

    Perhaps the BBC is having difficulty working out how to square that quote from Twitter with its own euphemistic portrayals of Hamas as a ‘militant Islamist group’ and Hizballah as a ‘political, military and social organisation’.
    Indy egregiously misleads on Gaza power shortages
    A Nov. 3rd article in the Independent on the use of solar power in Gaza grossly misled readers as to the extent and origin of the strip’s electricity shortages.

    The article, “Meet the Gazan woman turning rubble into building blocks and sunlight into power”, by their deputy international editor Gemma Fox, begins thusly:

    For Samar, Gaza’s crippling blackouts used to mean a daily, panicked rush to take her son to the nearest hospital so that his lungs wouldn’t fail.

    He suffers from a lung disease that has left him dependent on a machine to breathe. But the machine depends on electricity – something in critically short supply in Gaza.

    Samar’s story is far from unique, with the enclave’s two million residents forced to try to survive on roughly three hours of electricity since Israel imposed a blockade in 2016.

    Hospitals and other buildings rely on generators to keep the power on during the cuts, but they are expensive, and until recently, a luxury that Samar was unable to afford.


    First, Israel imposed their blockades of Gaza, due to Hamas’s takeover of the strip, in 2007, not 2016.

    Also, it was both Egypt and Israel who imposed a blockade. In Israel’s case, the only items that have generally been restricted are military related (or dual-use) goods.

    Additionally, the Indy gets their figures on the daily availability of electricity in Gaza wildly wrong. Palestinians in the strip get around twelve hours a day, not three, as a detailed report and graph by United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) makes clear.
    BBC WS radio amplifies claim that a country called Palestine “existed”
    Despite the claims from Hills and Lefrak, as we noted when BBC World Service radio previously promoted the museum and its founder back in June, it is essentially the continuation of a project that is very much political – even if Lefrak fails to identify it as such.

    Lefrak: “Museum founder Bshara Nassar says his goal is to create a space that’s more personal than political.”
    Nassar: “We want to really transform the story and put Palestinians in the light that we’re human beings, right? We’re artists, we’re entrepreneurs, we’re in politics and we contributing a lot to the US as immigrants as well.”
    Lefrak: “Nassar immigrated to the US from the West Bank in 2011. When he came to Washington he saw a city full of museums but he didn’t see one that reflected him.”
    Nassar: “Really I could not see a place where the Palestinian story can be told.”
    Lefrak: “So he decided to open a travelling exhibition that would eventually become the museum. One of the objects in the collection is a 1946 passport for the Palestine Mandate. It was rendered useless the following year after the United Nations voted to establish the State of Israel. Curator Nada Odeh wants visitors to understand that history.”


    That passport was of course in fact “rendered useless” in May 1948 when the British terminated their administration of the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine – the purpose of which was to create a Jewish national home. In 1947 the UNGA passed a resolution (181) recommending that the area then still under British administration should be partitioned between Jewish and Arab states – a recommendation accepted by the Jews but rejected out of hand by the Arabs and hence never implemented. BBC world Service listeners heard nothing of that history – or the Arab attacks which followed that UN vote – but they did hear the ‘non-political’ museum’s Syrian-born head curator promote the falsehood that a country “called Palestine” used to exist.


    German Cardinal: Antisemitism is an attack on us all
    A prominent German cardinal of the Catholic Church has pledged that Jews and Christians will stand together in the fight against rising antisemitism in the country.

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who is chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference and serves as the archbishop of Munich and Freising, said on Sunday night that “Christians and Jews will never separate again,” in the face of new antisemitism.

    He made the comments during a panel discussion on antisemitism at the Catholic Academy in Berlin hosted by the German Bishops’ Conference and the Orthodox Rabbinical Conference of Germany.

    Among prominent figures who attended were Katharina von Schnurbein, the European Commission coordinator on combating antisemitism; Armin Laschet, prime minister of North Rhine-Westphalia; and Josef Schuster, head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

    A statement released by the German Bishops’ Conference quoted Marx as calling for stronger social commitment and better cohesion in society “in the face of resurgent antisemitism in Germany and Europe.”

    He stressed that he was “very worried” about the direction society is heading because there are “more and more blogs and ideologies from people that cannot be taught, who indulge in conspiracy theories and soon unite as a sounding board for... slogans of antisemitism.”
    Outrage in Germany over neo-Nazis’ political ‘kill list’
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government on Monday strongly condemned death threats against two leading Green party politicians by a neo-Nazi group, as concern mounts over a rise in right-wing extremism.

    Greens lawmaker Cem Ozdemir, who has Turkish roots, revealed at the weekend that police were investigating an email he had received from a neo-Nazi group saying he was at the top of their kill list.

    “We are currently planning how and when to execute you. At the next rally? Or will we get you outside your home?” the email read, according to the Funke newspaper group.

    Fellow Greens MP Claudia Roth received a message saying she was second in line to be killed.

    Both emails were sent on October 27 and signed with “Nuclear Weapons Division Germany” (AWD), apparently a German offshoot of a notorious US-based neo-Nazi group.

    “The German government clearly condemns any kind of threats or violence against politicians,” Merkel’s spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer told reporters.

    “We cannot and will not accept these attacks on our free democratic system,” she said, vowing to use the full force of the law against the perpetrators.
    White supremacist charged with planning to blow up Colorado synagogue
    US authorities have arrested a known white supremacist on suspicion that he planned to blow up a synagogue in Colorado, local media reported Monday.

    The suspect, named as Richard Holzer, 27, reportedly met an undercover FBI agent on Friday at a motel with explosives that he allegedly intended to use to attack Temple Emanuel in the city of Pueblo.

    Holzer told an undercover FBI agent that he had previously been a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and had become a skinhead, according to the Denver Post.

    Holzer said he was preparing a “holy war” and claimed to have poisoned the water at the synagogue with arsenic and was planning to do so again, The Denver Post reported, citing an affidavit filed on Saturday at the US District Court in Colorado.

    According to the affidavit, when asked what if people were in the building when the bomb exploded, “Holzer stated that he did not think anyone would be there, but that if they were, Holzer would not care because they would be Jews.”
    Men dressed as Jews hand out Holocaust denial fliers at Colorado mall
    A group of men wearing large white yarmulkes and fringed prayer shawls handed out fliers promoting Holocaust denial and hung up cards bearing anti-Semitic canards on a pedestrian mall in Boulder, Colorado.

    The fliers handed out at Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall by the men who appeared to be posing as Jews claimed the Holocaust was “impossible.”

    The men also hung notes on index cards around the mall that claimed “Academia is dominated by Marxist Jews,” Jews run the porn industry,” and “Jews ran the Atlantic slave trade,” the Daily Camera newspaper reported.

    The men livestreamed their actions, according to the report.

    As of Sunday morning, no reports were filed with police about the fliers, Boulder police told the newspaper.


    City of Poway, CA, set to rename street after Chabad shooting victim
    The city council in Poway, Calif., will consider a proposal on Nov. 5 to change the name of a short street in memory of Lori Lynn Gilbert-Kaye, the only fatality in the shooting earlier this year at Chabad of Poway.

    Under the proposal, Eva Drive would become Lori Lynn Lane. It is located near where the 60-year-old congregant lived with her husband, Dr. Howard Kaye, about a mile from the synagogue.

    Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said that people associated with Chabad approached the city to propose the street-name change.

    “They did all the groundwork, and our team got the obstacles out of the way,” he said. “It should have unanimous and enthusiastic support.”

    Three people, including senior Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, were wounded on April 27 when lone gunman John Earnest shot at worshippers during Shabbat-morning services.

    Earnest has pleaded not guilty to state and federal charges, including 113 federal hate crime-related counts.
    Karish natural gas field off Israel’s shore found to be much bigger than thought
    Energean Oil and Gas plc, a Greek gas producer focused on the Mediterranean, said Monday that its appraisal of the Karish North discovery offshore Israel has revealed 0.9 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of recoverable natural gas resources plus 34 million barrels of light oil or condensate.

    The appraisal “significantly” increases the resource volumes discovered by Energean at the Karish and Tanin leases off Israel’s shore, the statement said.

    The firm had already discovered 2.4 tcf of natural gas at the Karish and Tanin fields, along with 33 million barrels of light oil. Energean has already signed accords to sell 4.7 billion cubic meters a year of the fuel to Israeli customers.

    Light crude oil is a liquid petroleum that has a low density and low viscosity than heavy crude oil. Natural gas condensate is a mixture of hydrocarbon liquids that are present in the raw natural gas produced at gas fields.

    Israel, a nation traditionally starved of natural resources, believes the discovery of natural gas reserved off its shores in the Mediterranean will lead it to energy independence and make it an exporter of gas. The Karish and Tanin natural gas fields sit alongside the larger Tamar and Leviathan deposits in Israel’s economic waters in the Mediterranean.
    Israel-Egypt gas pipeline deal expected in coming days
    A deal that would transfer control of a natural gas pipeline between Israel and Egypt is expected to be closed in the next few days, the companies said on Sunday.

    Texas-based Noble Energy (NBL.N), Israel’s Delek Drilling (DEDRp.TA) and Egyptian East Gas Co have partnered in a venture called EMED, which last year agreed to buy a 39% stake in the subsea EMG pipeline for $518 million that will carry Israeli gas exports to Egypt.

    In a regulatory filing in Tel Aviv, Delek said the shares have already been transferred to the buyers while the funds are currently being held in a trust. It noted that no closing conditions remained.

    “Upon the transfer of the full amount of the consideration to the sellers, which is expected to be performed in the coming days, the EMG transaction will be closed in practice,” Delek said.

    Partners in Israel’s Leviathan and Tamar offshore gas fields had agreed to sell $15 billion worth of gas to a customer in Egypt — Dolphinus Holdings — but last month the deal was amended to boost supply by 34% to about 85 billion cubic meters, or an estimated $20 billion.
    Elbit Systems Lands 5-Year, $50 Million Portuguese Defense Ministry Contract
    Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems announced over the weekend that it has been awarded a $50 million contract to supply the Portuguese Air Force with a complete electronic warfare suite and customer logistics support for the new KC-390 multi-mission aircraft. The contract is to be completed over a five-year period.

    Under the contract, Elbit will supply the Portuguese Air Force’s KC-390s with Radar and Laser Warning Systems, an IR Missile Warning System, Countermeasures Dispensing System, a Directional IR Countermeasures system and Active ECM (AECM) POD system.

    “The Portuguese Air Force is a long-standing strategic partner of Elbit Systems and we are proud of this contract award to provide enhanced survivability for their new fleet of KC-390 aircraft,” said Edgar Maimon, executive vice president and general manager of Elbit Systems’ Electronic Warfare and Signals Intelligence Unit.

    Last week, Elbit announced that it had been selected by the Swiss Federal Department of Defense, Civil Protection and Sport to provide the Swiss Armed Forces with an army-wide tactical Software Defined Radio (SDR) solution under the Telecommunications Armed Forces (TK A) program.
    Ray Charles in Israel
    “I had always heard that I was popular in Israel, but I didn’t get over there until the early seventies,” the soul genius Ray Charles recalled. “Some people asked me to do a documentary. I liked the idea. I’d never done anything like that before. The film people knew I wasn’t a scholar or a theologian, but they had heard that I had a decent working knowledge of the Bible. They had also heard that the Israelis liked me, and they hoped the two things would blend.”

    Ray Charles, accompanied by his five backup singers, the Raelettes, arrived in Israel in early December 1972. In the first two weeks of that month they performed at five wildly successful concerts. Israeli fans of the “Genius of Soul” thronged the concert halls of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa. Fans cheered the musicians in the streets and the press gave their concert tour wide coverage.

    The musicians spent two weeks performing and touring in the country. It was, Charles remembered, an opportunity to “look around and learn. … It was all so old, so incredibly old, that I couldn’t help but shake my head in wonder. I could smell history in the streets.”

    By the early 1970s, Ray Charles and the Raelettes had given concerts all over the world. In Japan, they had encountered particularly enthusiastic audiences. But in terms of enthusiasm none of these concerts prepared Charles and his ensemble for the reception they received in Israel.

    That many Israelis liked Ray Charles and his music was an understatement. I was living in Jerusalem at the time and I remember vividly the excitement that his visit generated. I also remember that by the time I made it to the concert hall box office the two Jerusalem shows were completely sold out. I never got to hear him on that tour, but news of it was in all of the Israel newspapers. It seemed that by missing that concert I had missed more than the music.

    The riveting story of the Jerusalem concert is best told by the genius himself: In his autobiography, Brother Ray, (co-written with David Ritz) Charles wrote that, “In thirty years on the road, I had never experienced anything like this. We were supposed to do two shows, but the first one had the crowd so crazy and happy that they wouldn’t leave. The second crowd was due any minute, but the first crowd wasn’t about to move.”


    The Jewish roots of French icon Asterix the Gaul
    The iconic adventures of Asterix the Gaul may be most famous in the French-speaking world, but their inspiration is decidedly Jewish.

    One of the most famous characters in French comics, and considered by many to be a French national hero, the adventures of Asterix and his sidekick Obelix are popular all over the world. The comics were translated to over 100 languages, including Latin, Welsh and Hebrew. It has inspired 10 movies, the most recent one the 2018 Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion.

    But could Asterix be Jewish? While the answer is obviously no – Asterix is literally a Gaul, after all – Ateret Yerushalayim rosh yeshiva Rabbi Shlomo Aviner argues that the Jewish inspiration is clearly there.

    It is important to note that the original writer behind Asterix, René Goscinny, was undoubtedly Jewish, having been born in Paris in 1926 to two Jewish immigrants from Poland. His father accepted a job in Argentina after he was born, unknowingly ensuring their family won't be harmed by the Nazi occupation of France, to which he returned in 1946.

    Speaking in an interview reported by Srugim, Rabbi Aviner, who is French himself – after mentioning that this isn't as important as studying Rashi, a medieval Jewish scholar who was also French – reaffirmed Goscinny's Jewishness.

    "His father was born in Warsaw, and his grandfather was a rabbi," he explained. "His Jewish identity was strong."
    Jewish astronaut snaps space pics of Israel, salutes late father
    Jewish astronaut Jessica Meir, who made history last month as one half of the first all-female spacewalking team, on Friday posted pictures of Israel snapped from space with a caption saying the country was part of her father’s journey.

    “My father’s globe spanning journey as a surgeon from the Middle East, to Europe, and eventually to the U.S. was an inspiration to many in my immediate and extended family. #TheJourney,” Meir wrote.

    Meir’s late father was born in 1925 in Baghdad, and in 1931 the whole family left Iraq as a result of anti-Semitism and settled in pre-state Israel.

    He was in medical school at the American University of Beirut when the 1948 War of Independence broke out and returned to Israel, where he drove an ambulance during the war. He then went to Geneva to finish medical school before taking a job in Sweden, where he met Meir’s mother, a nurse who was raised in a Christian Swedish family.

    Her parents then moved to the US.




    We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

    What’s in the Bag?

     Cache   

    The stuff that bad people give you at Hallowe’en.

    Recently, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the monthly offerings of this column have been tightly organized around a central theme or cluster of ideas. Well, maybe you haven’t noticed that. I’ve tried, anyway. But, as we libertarians are fond of saying, TANSTAAFL: there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. You always have to pay for what you get. In the case of Word Watch, tight organization — or a pretense of it — is purchased at the price of ignoring a lot of things that somebody ought to mention.

    I’ll put it in another way. Everyone who writes a column like this has something that we call, in our professional language, the Grab Bag. We collect samples of things that we may want to mention, and when it comes time to get serious and write the column, we go to the Grab Bag and pull stuff out. Sometimes we’re frustrated because the great thing that absolutely must be discussed this month is somehow not in the Bag after all, and since we can’t seem to remember what it was, we have no idea of where else to look for it. Occasionally we’re relieved to find that all the items we pulled out of the Bag seem to fit together like a watch. More often we’re disgusted to see that in trying to make it all fit, we failed to exploit our most interesting material.

    So this month I’m going to grab items out of the bag with no concern for whether they fit together or not. At the end, we’ll see whether any sense of order has emerged.

    As we libertarians are fond of saying, there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

    Item 1. The acute becomes chronic. There’s a common, and plausible, idea that high-speed mass communication renders language unstable. In the age of the internet, words, phrases, and, bless my soul, memes are born, become known, become popular, become tyrannical, and just as rapidly wither and die, depriving all who had adopted them of the ability to communicate. Expressions that might have measured their lives by generations of human beings now measure it by generations of fruit flies.

    Regrettably, this notion is true only of clever and useful expressions, the ones that provoke and enable thought. Nobody remembers those. But words that destroy both thought and the tools of thought — these have remarkable staying power. They not only remain; if they die, they are resurrected. Witness cool and dude, all-purpose signifiers of some kind of goodness and personhood, which were chewed to death by Boomers but miraculously revived by Millennials.

    Meanwhile — oh, a mere 25 or 30 years ago — the first generation of computer geeks gave us input as the replacement term for advice, suggestions, responses, dialogue– real words with real meanings, meanings that prompt one to think, “What do I want from her? Her analysis? Her ideas? Her corrections? Her critique? What, exactly, do I want?” But it’s so much easier, dude, just to ask for her input. At the same time, somebody — perhaps a student of meteor trajectories — gave us impact as a way of killing all distinctions among affect, influence, damage, ruin, destroy, annihilate. And the bureaucrats gave us the Universal Slash, the little mark of punctuation that proclaims to us, “I don’t care enough about what I’m writing to choose the words I mean; I’ll just plop down a bunch of possibilities and put slashes between them.” And these means of avoiding thought have (to paraphrase William Faulkner’s comment about man himself) not only endured but prevailed. On the road from here to eternity, they are approaching the goal.

    Words that destroy both thought and the tools of thought — these have remarkable staying power.

    I feel that more needs to be said about the slash. Here are two examples from a single source (in the comments to which you will see many, many more examples):

    That’s why the FBI, and later the Mueller team, were/are so strongly committed to, and defending, the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.

    The CURRENT FBI wants to hide Ms. Kavalec’s warning/notification that Steele was delivering false information about Cohen traveling to Prague.

    Tell me, great author, you who have so much to tell: was it a warning, or was it a notification? There’s a difference. Maybe it was both. Decide, and let me know. And were those investigators committed, or are they committed, or have they always been committed? This also makes a difference. So fill me in. Don’t pretend that you’re too busy, or that your keyboard won’t do or and and.

    The US (Universal Slash) started as a little ignorant/dippy/sometimes-pretentious fad — but it remained. And multiplied. If you work for an organization, any organization, you’ll get it in your inbox a hundred times a day. But when you talk to people about it, they just look back at you.

    2. Are we trying to be ugly, or not to be ugly? In other words, why do people insist on saying passed away and the still more cloying passed, when all they mean is died — yet they make no effort to avoid the desperately ugly nitpick, pick your brain, brown-nose, and suck?

    If you work for an organization, any organization, you’ll get the Universal Slash in your inbox a hundred times a day.

    3. Horton hears a where. The word where refers to places and spaces. Then why is it constantly used for things that are not places or spaces? “In the argument where she shows . . . ” “It was in the century where . . .” On October 19 I read: “Seats where in years prior the Republicans did not even bother fielding a candidate are being flipped, while Democratic gains in the suburbs are mostly in traditionally competitive swing seats. Historically, the midterm elections typically favor the party that is not in the White House, yet this was trumpeted as a historic turnaround.” By the way, what is the referent of this?

    4. Nope, nobody said a word. “No allegations of impropriety have been made.” “There have been no accusations of misconduct.” “No charges have ever been lodged.” To cite Gilbert and Sullivan:

    What, never?
    No, never!

    What, never?
    Well, hardly ever!

    These no, never phrases are now used in exact proportion to the prevalence of allegations, accusations, charges, opinions, and convictions that something grossly improper or illegal has in fact been done. I’ve been meaning to comment on this singular phenomenon since I noticed that it was routinely being reported that no accusations had ever been made against Jussie Smollett, at a time when everyone in the country was thinking, and many brave souls were writing, that he had faked a racist and anti-gay attack on himself. Long before that, “Hillary Clinton has never been accused of a crime” had become a permanent part of the media mantra, despite the existence of a long shelf of books and about a million news articles accusing her of a wide variety of crimes.

    There have always been plenty of American businesses that would give Hunter Biden a job he isn’t qualified for.

    By this standard, no one who hasn’t been formally arraigned in a US court has ever been accused of anything. And now Biden’s doing it. In his whole life he’s never been accused of wrongdoing — unlike Trump!

    5. And you were silly enough to think the media were unbiased! CNN “anchor” (and never has there been an anchor more weighted with his own importance) Anderson Cooper was the host of the Democratic presidential candidates’ October 15 debate. In that capacity, he put the following question to Joseph (“Honest Joe”) Biden:

    The impeachment inquiry is centered on President Trump's attempts to get political dirt from Ukraine on Vice President Biden and his son, Hunter. Mr. Vice President, President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board in Ukraine. I want to point out there's no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you.

    Having said that, on Sunday, you announced that if you're president, no one in your family or associated with you will be involved in any foreign businesses. My question is, if it's not okay for a president's family to be involved in foreign businesses, why was it okay for your son when you were vice president?

    Well thank you, Anderson. You’re right, of course. There have always been plenty of American businesses that would give Hunter a job he isn’t qualified for.

    People like Cooper have apparently decided that they can say anything, anything at all, to their hapless victims in the nursing homes and airport waiting rooms, and still maintain their self-respect.

    I don’t need to gloss Cooper’s wiffleball “question” (you can tell it’s a question because he says, “My question is”), which was obviously wafted at Biden as an excuse for proclaiming him and his son innocent and their antagonist guilty, prior to all questions. Political dirt. Falsely accused. No evidence of wrongdoing. Try about a million dollars a year of evidence about that Ukrainian company. But the question proves that Anderson’s still speakin’ truth to power.

    In a rational world, the more CNN’s numbers dropped, the more it would strive to look nonpartisan. Exactly the opposite has taken place. People like Cooper have apparently decided that they can say anything, anything at all, to their hapless victims in the nursing homes and airport waiting rooms, and still maintain their self-respect. There’s no evidence that they’re doing something wrong.

    6. Do you actually know what you’re saying? There’s lots of Mrs. Clinton stuff in the Grab Bag. Here is a recent utterance. She’s speaking, as usual, about how everyone let her down in 2016:

    There was nothing. I had nothing. So from my perspective, I think we’ll be a little better off [in 2020] than we were back then. But we’re gonna be outgunned, outspent, out-lied.

    I mean, we’re gonna have a lot of problems.

    Literally, then, what “we” need is bigger guns, bigger spending, and bigger lies.

    7. For the millionth time, what are teachers getting paid to teach? It isn’t words. If it were, we wouldn’t constantly be encountering authors, themselves fairly well paid, who write things such as “he needed to lay down” and “she was one of the most well informed persons in Washington” and “’Go west, young person,’ as Horatio Alger infamously said.” All right, I made that last one up, but it didn’t surprise you, did it? How about the wondrous literacy of this newsicle. “He then gets on top of a yellow Ford Thunderbird and laying on his side, posing on the car.” Period. That’s the end of the “sentence,” complete with laying. Almost everyone in my building has a college education, but I regularly get notices that “water will be shut-off at 8:00 a.m.” I also read in headlines that “Senator Rand Paul Calls-Out Chairman Lindsay Graham.” Somebody needs to turn-off these hyphens. Somebody also needs to turn-off the sex and gender education and turn-on the English class.

    8. Real rhetoric: the absence and the presence. By real rhetoric I mean words intelligently organized for the greatest possible effect on intelligent people. How much of that do you hear or read? How much of it do you get from the biggest spouters of rhetoric, the politicians? Answer: little, and none. But just when I was arranging some rhetorical flowers for the funeral of rhetoric, Democratic presidential contestant Tulsi Gabbard stayed my hand and joyed my heart.

    Even if you can separate the value of courage from the value of words (which you should), you can certainly admire Gabbard’s choice of words.

    Gabbard was responding to a podcast produced by the aforesaid Hillary Clinton in which Clinton claimed that Gabbard, who questions military interventions abroad, was being “groomed” for the presidency by Russians. She was a Russian asset. Gabbard responded almost instantly:

    Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign [in leading newspapers and elsewhere] to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose. It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.

    One thing that’s real about those words is that they’re all true, and obviously true. But even if you’re so oblivious as to think that they aren’t obvious, you have to admire Gabbard’s courage in addressing them to the wealthiest and most influential and most terrifying person in her party. And even if you can separate the value of courage from the value of words (which you should), you can certainly admire Gabbard’s choice of words. Her words have cadence and emphasis; they are educated, yet accessible; the pictures they paint are immediately visible, yet she wastes not a word in painting them. She doesn’t pussyfoot up to her prey and try to nibble it to death; she doesn’t pretend to admire any imaginary good qualities of her victim; she doesn’t try to find a de-“gendered” term for “queen.” She is completely successful. It’s startling to realize that this is what, for three decades, has needed to be said, but wasn’t said by anyone on Gabbard’s side of the aisle, or said with compelling words by anyone on the other side. I think I disagree with almost everything in Gabbard’s own political program, but she sure knows how to write.

    L’envoi:

    Well, this has been fun. And it had a happy ending, too. I’m sure there’s no order to the thing (except for a certain obsession with Hillary Clinton), but why keep sacrificing wholesome fun to some impossible ideal of organization?

    Enough is enough; goodbye for October.

    Presentato A Roma il "Libro bianco" sulla ricerca clinica in Italia

     Cache   
    Presentato A Roma il

    L’Italia, fanalino di coda in Europa nella ricerca, rischia una forte riduzione dei finanziamenti alla ricerca clinica.

    Nel nostro Paese solo l’1,35% del PIL è destinato alla ricerca rispetto ad una media UE del 2,07%. Il 95% della spesa è oggi a carico di aziende private ma ogni euro pagato dallo sponsor per compensi e fornitura di farmaci vale 2,2 euro per il SSN. Fondazione FADOI e Fondazione Roche presentano il “Libro bianco sulla ricerca clinica indipendente - dalle fonti di finanziamento al valore etico e sociale”: una panoramica sul potenziale e sui benefici che la ricerca clinica garantisce al Sistema Salute e un’analisi sulla svolta negativa che potrebbe derivare dal riassetto della normativa in materia di sperimentazione.

     
    ROMA - La ricerca clinica rappresenta un asset strategico per il nostro Paese e ha un valore scientifico, sociale, etico ed economico per i cittadini, per il Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (SSN) e per l’intero Sistema. Tuttavia, in Italia non sembra godere di ottima salute considerando che il numero delle sperimentazioni cliniche indipendenti si è ridotto del 50% negli ultimi 8 anni. Un’ulteriore svolta negativa potrebbe arrivare dal riassetto della normativa in materia di sperimentazione clinica, che introducendo misure sul conflitto di interessi potrebbe deprimere ancor più il settore della ricerca, annullando i benefici per i pazienti e per il SSN che oggi derivano dai finanziamenti che le aziende farmaceutiche destinano alla ricerca tramite la collaborazione con le istituzioni ospedaliere. Questo quadro allarmante sul futuro della ricerca clinica è contenuto nel Libro Bianco “Il valore della ricerca clinica indipendente in Italia” realizzato dalla Fondazione FADOI (Federazione dei dirigenti ospedalieri internisti) e dalla Fondazione Roche, in collaborazione con SDA Bocconi, presentato oggi a Roma presso il Nobile Collegio Chimico Farmaceutico. Il Libro Bianco ricorda l’esiguità dei finanziamenti pubblici che l’Italia destina alla ricerca in generale, pari a circa 1,35% del Pil contro una media UE del 2,07%.  
     
    Ancora minore è l’impegno nei confronti della ricerca clinica, che ha nella cura delle malattie l’obiettivo primario. Dai dati elaborati dal Cergas-SDA Bocconi, emerge che nel 2016 i finanziamenti per la ricerca clinica sono ammontanti a oltre 788 milioni di euro, di cui il 7,5% erogato dallo Stato, l’89% dalle aziende private e il resto da fondi UE e dai cittadini tramite il 5 per mille. Nel 2017, sul totale di circa 753 milioni, la quota a carico dello Stato (attraverso AIFA e Ministero della Salute) è scesa all’1%, mentre il contributo delle aziende è salito al 95,86%. In media negli ultimi cinque anni (2014-2018) le imprese hanno finanziato il 92% della ricerca clinica mentre il contributo pubblico è stato del 4%.

    Eppure, il settore della ricerca medica contribuisce in modo significativo all’economia del Paese, con posti di lavoro qualificati, alto livello di conoscenza, miglior benessere della popolazione. I calcoli sui margini economici per il SSN, derivanti dalla partecipazione di aziende ospedaliere pubbliche alla sperimentazione clinica sponsorizzata dall’industria farmaceutica, indicano un effetto moltiplicatore di 1 a 2,2 (ogni euro pagato dallo sponsor per compensi e fornitura di farmaci vale 2,2 euro per il SSN), generando risparmi per costi pubblici evitati che potrebbero essere reimpiegati nella ricerca non-profit. Il decreto legislativo n. 52/2019, attuativo della legge n. 3/2018 (c.d. Legge Lorenzin), rischia di rappresentare lo spartiacque negativo per il futuro della sperimentazione clinica in Italia. I medici, scienziati e accademici che hanno recentemente lanciato l’allarme con un Position Paper sono: Agostino Migone de Amicis, Presidente del Comitato Etico IRCCS “Humanitas” di Milano; Gualberto Gussoni, Direttore Scientifico FADOI, Milano; Gilberto Corbellini, Professore Ordinario Università di Roma “La Sapienza” e Direttore Dipartimento Scienze umane e sociali, patrimonio culturale del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche; Roberto Labianca, Direttore Cancer Center Ospedale Papa Giovanni XXIII di Bergamo; Salvatore Majorana, Direttore Kilometro Rosso, Innovation District; Cristina Messa, già Rettore Università “Bicocca” di Milano; Carlo Nicora, Direttore Generale Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico “San Matteo” di Pavia; Giorgio Racagni, Professore di Farmacologia Università degli Studi di Milano e Presidente Eletto Società Italiana di Farmacologia; Ennio Tasciotti, Associate Professor of Nanomedicine e Director Center for Biomimetic Medicine, Houston Methodist, Houston, Texas. Il Position Paper, sottoscritto anche da 23 Associazioni, Società scientifiche e fondazioni, denuncia in particolare le ultime righe del comma 4 dell’art. 6 del decreto che, per garantire l’assenza di conflitti di interesse degli scienziati sperimentatori con l’azienda titolare del farmaco oggetto di studio, impone “l’assenza di rapporti di dipendenza, consulenza o collaborazione, a qualsiasi titolo, con il promotore”. Un approccio che sembra avallare una “cultura del sospetto”, che scoraggia la partecipazione degli scienziati italiani a panel di ricerca anche internazionali, per il rischio di vedere compromessa la propria credibilità ogni volta che devono autocertificare proprie situazioni personali e professionali.
     
    il Libro Bianco, è necessaria la massima trasparenza, favorita magari da registri online pubblici: “E’ auspicabile quindi che l’applicazione del D.Lgs n. 52/2019 in tema di conflitti di interessi sia fatta in un’ottica non restrittiva, tenendo conto degli interessi comuni e in modo da non limitare la ricerca clinica in Italia, sia indipendente che sponsorizzata”.
    “La ricerca è al centro di molte delle attività che Fondazione Roche sostiene con forte impegno, non solo sotto forma di finanziamenti per la comunità scientifica, ma anche attraverso iniziative di formazione e informazione per far comprendere quanto condurre una ricerca di qualità sia prezioso per i giovani, per gli scienziati, per i pazienti e per l’intero Paese – afferma Mariapia Garavaglia, Presidente di Fondazione Roche – pertanto siamo convinti che promuovere una giusta e sana collaborazione tra pubblico e privato possa fare la differenza in quanto garantisce benefici sia a livello economico, sia di soluzioni sempre più efficaci per la salute del nostro Paese”.
    “Come medici, che quotidianamente ci confrontiamo per la cura dei nostri malati – commenta Andrea Fontanella, Presidente FADOI – non possiamo trascurare il fatto che una ricerca clinica ben organizzata e competitiva consenta ai nostri pazienti di accedere alle terapie innovative, spesso più efficaci. La ricerca e l’assistenza sono legate da un circolo virtuoso: la ricerca trae le sue idee dai bisogni dell’assistenza, e quest’ultima beneficia dei risultati della ricerca. Inoltre, il medico che fa ricerca spesso cura meglio perché abituato a confrontarsi con la conoscenza più evoluta”.
    L’evento si è concluso con una tavola rotonda, moderata dal giornalista Nicola Porro, a cui hanno preso parte l’On. Fabiola Bologna, Componente Commissione Affari Sociali e Commissione Bicamerale per l’Infanzia e l’Adolescenza della Camera dei deputati; Dott. Roberto Francesco Labianca, Direttore Cancer Center Ospedale Papa Giovanni XXIII di Bergamo; On. Beatrice Lorenzin, Componente V Commissione (Bilancio, Tesoro e Programmazione) della Camera dei deputati; Dott. Giorgio Racagni, Presidente Eletto Società Italiana di Farmacologia; Sen. Maria Rizzotti, Componente 12ª Commissione permanente (Igiene e Sanità) e Commissione parlamentare di inchiesta sul femminicidio, nonché su ogni forma di violenza di genere del Senato; Sen. Maria Cristina Cantù, Vicepresidente della 12ª Commissione permanente (Igiene e Sanità) del Senato; On. Angela Ianaro, Componente XIV Commissione (Politiche dell’Unione Europea), XII Commissione (Affari Sociali) e Commissione Parlamentare per l’attuazione del Federalismo Fiscale, Camera dei deputati; On. Andrea Mandelli, Vicepresidente della Commissione Speciale per l’esame di Atti del Governo e Componente V Commissione (Bilancio, Tesoro e Programmazione) della Camera dei deputati; On. Luca Rizzo Nervo, Componente XII Commissione (Affari Sociali) della Camera dei deputati; Dott. Carlo Nicora, Direttore Generale IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo Pavia; Dott. Sergio Scaccabarozzi,
    Country Head of Clinical Operations Roche Italia.
     
    Durante la tavola rotonda è stato affrontato il tema della ricerca clinica indipendente da diversi punti di vista, in base all’appartenenza politica, aprendo così un dibattito costruttivo volto a cercare soluzioni in grado di immettere valore nel Sistema Salute grazie a una giusta e etica collaborazione tra pubblico e privato. “Le decisioni che le nostre Istituzioni sono chiamate a prendere, e che non sono più differibili, saranno estremamente importanti per il destino della ricerca clinica nel nostro Paese – conclude Dario Manfellotto, Presidente eletto FADOI – in un mondo che corre così velocemente, mi auguro vivamente che si proceda presto, e soprattutto bene. Crediamo che questo Libro Bianco, scritto e curato da chi tutti i giorni si occupa di ricerca, possa essere un utile contributo per questo fondamentale obiettivo”.

    La bomba del Liceu segons el diari parisenc "Le Petit Journal" del 25 de novembre de 1893

    La bomba del Liceu segons el diari parisenc Le Petit Journal del 25 de novembre de 1893

    - Bomba del Liceu: El 7 de novembre de 1893, nit de la inauguració de la temporada del Gran Teatre del Liceu de Barcelona (Catalunya), durant el segon acte de la representació de l'òpera Guglielmo Tell, de Rossini, dirigida pel mestre Leopoldo Mugnone, l'anarquista Santiago Salvador Franch va llançar des del quart pis a la platea dues bombes «Orsini», una de les quals va esclatar i va produir vint morts i nombrosos ferits. El Gran Teatre del Liceu, que aquell dia era ple (3.600 places), s'havia convertit en lloc de reunió i d'esplai de la nova burgesia industrial, financera i comercial catalana. Salvador, que havia actuat així per venjar l'execució de Paulí Pallàs el 6 d'octubre d'aquell any, va aconseguir fugir i l'Estat de setge es va decretar a la capital catalana el 10 de novembre. Centenars d'anarquistes van ser detinguts i torturats a les masmorres del castell de Montjuïc. L'atemptat d'antuvi va ser atribuït a l'anarquista Josep Codina i després a Mariano Cerezuela, i ambdós serà executats el 21 de maig de 1894. Salvador va ser detingut el 2 de gener de 1894 a Saragossa i quan va ser apressat va intentar suïcidar-se disparant-se un tret al ventre. Dins la presó de Barcelona va simular ser convertit pel jesuïta Goberna, però en ser-li confirmada la sentència de pena de mort dictada l'11 de juliol de 1894 reafirmà públicament el seu anarquisme. Santiago Salvador va ser executat el 21 de novembre de 1894, i amb ell sis més (Cerezuela, Codina, Archs, Sabat, Bernat i Sogas) dels 27 implicats en el procés --Miralles, Mir, Carbonell i Villarrubias van ser condemnats a cadena perpètua. Aquest atemptat va tenir importants conseqüències polítiques, jurídiques i literàries, i va donar lloc a una crisi teatral que va durar mesos. La bomba «Orsini» --nom del famós anarquista que va atemptar contra Napoleó III amb un artefacte d'aquesta classe--, de la mida d'una poma grossa, que no va arribar a esclatar perquè va ser esmortida en caure sobre la falda d'una senyora ja morta, es conserva avui al Museu d'Història de la Ciutat (Barcelona).

    - Surt El Libertario: El 7 de novembre de 1909 surt a Madrid (Espanya) el primer número del periòdic anarquista El Libertario. Semanario anarquista. A partir del número 2 portarà el subtítol «Periódico anarquista» i en el número 3 desaparegué el subtítol. En teoria setmanal, aparegué força irregularment. El comitè de redacció estava format per Ricardo Gómez y Gómez, Lino Cuesta Martín, Antonio Gil Taboada, Juan José Cuesta Martín i Ramón Prieto. Aquests mateixos van signar el «Manifiesto. A los anarquistas de todo el mundo», sobre el fracassat moviment revolucionari català d'aquell any, que es va publicar en el primer número. Hi van col·laborar, entre d'altres, Fernando Ramos, Cruz del Olmo, V. García, Alfonso Logo i Mauro Bajatierra. En sortiren sis números, l'últim el 20 de febrer de 1910. L'única col·lecció que es conserva està dipositada a l'International Institute of Social History (IISH) d'Amsterdam.

    - Surt El Productor: El 7 de novembre de 1925 surt a Barcelona (Catalunya) el primer número del setmanari anarquista i anarcosindicalista El Productor. Periódico de ideas y crítica. Òrgan d'expressió del grup llibertari del mateix nom i molt lligat a la Confederació Regional del Treball de Catalunya (CRTC), fou dirigit per Manuel Buenacasa Tomeo. Durant un temps la redacció s'establí a Blanes (Selva, Catalunya). Hi van participar en la redacció Ramon Suñé, Joaquín Adelantado, José Alberola, Patricio Navarro, Ramón Tené, Miguel Jiménez, J. Magriñá, J. Vázquez, Ramón Domínguez, Blas, Miguel Chueca, Gisbert, Labrador, Peñacorada, Rosquillas, Royo, Ruiz de Galarreta, Sesé i Isidre Duch, entre d'altres. Polemitzà força amb Vida Sindical, d'Ángel Pestaña i de Joan Peiró, i fins i tot amb Errico Malatesta en defensa del moviment obrer anarquista, amb el suport directe del nucli espanyol de La Protesta de Buenos Aires, sobre tot de Diego Abad de Santillán, òrgan d'expressió de la Federació Obrera Regional Argentina (FORA). Aspirava reforçar l'anarquisme en la Confederació Nacional del Treball (CNT) enfront de l'empenta de la tendència sindicalista («sindicalisme possibilista»). Hi van col·laborar Abad de Santillán, Caro Crespo, Ghiraldo, Treni, Malatesta, Makhno, etc. Aquesta publicació fou suspesa per l'autoritat governativa de Primo de Rivera i només pogué publicar 20 números, l'últim el 19 de març de 1926. El Productor va ser capçalera de nombroses publicacions llibertàries, anteriors i posteriors a aquesta.

    Notícia d'una de les conferències de Marie Murjas apareguda en el periòdic marsellès La Calotte del 7 d'abril de 1901

    - Marie Murjas: El 7 de novembre de 1876 neix a Plouaret (Lannion, Bretanya) la religiosa i després lliurepensadora i anarquista atea Marie-Yvonne Kamoal, més coneguda com Marie Murjas, pel llinatge de son company, i que també va fer servir el nom de Marie Lapeyre. Fill d'una família benestant,  el 16 de maig de 1894  entrà al convent de trapenques de Saint-Paul-aux-Bois (Picardia, França) i sota el nom de Soeur Scolastique prengué l'hàbit de novícia el 22 de novembre d'aquell mateix any; el 31 de juliol de 1896, però, abandonà sense professar la congregació. Esdevingué anarquista i en 1898 fou una de les fundadores de la Lliga dels Drets de l'Home i col·laborà amb la Libre Pensée, fent propaganda, mitjançant conferències contradictòries, contra els convents de clausura i a favor de l'ateisme. Des de maig de 1900 passà a residir al número 56 de l'avinguda Gambetta de Nimes (Llenguadoc, Occitània). Participà en la propaganda antimilitarista, fent conferències i editant cartells, especialment el març de 1901 a Nimes. Moltes de les seves conferències serviren per fer col·lectes de suport a determinades causes, com ara la de Brest (Bretanya) per al repatriament de l'anarquista Théodule Meunier, condemnat a treballs forçats a perpetuïtat colònia penitenciària de Caiena (Guaiana Francesa), la de Castèurainard (Provença, França) a favor dels vaguistes de Chalon (Roine-Alps, Arpitània), o la de Canes (Provença, Occitània) per a les famílies de la matança de Rússia de 1905. A Nimes conegué l'anarquista Adrien Murjas, que esdevingué son company, residint plegats al número 10 del carrer de la Madeleine. En 1901 va fer una gira de propaganda antireligiosa per Bèlgica. En aquesta època participà activament en les activitats del Grup Llibertari d'Estudis Socials (GLES), que es reunia a l'antiga seu de la Borsa del Treball, al número 7 del carrer Saint Paul. Durant l'estiu de 1901 realitzà una gira de conferències al centre i a l'est de França. El setembre de 1904 formà part de la representació francesa de la Libre Pensée que es reuní en un congrés internacional d'aquesta organització a Roma (Itàlia). La seva campanya anticlerical i atea va ser tan intensa que l'octubre de 1904 les monges del convent de trapenques de Saint-Paul-aux-Bois redactaren una carta explicant el seu cas que publicaren en els periòdics catòlics. A finals de febrer de 1905 el Tribunal Correccional d'Épinal (Lorena, França), a resultes d'una denúncia de Dom Étienne, prior de la Trapa, i Soeur Adélaïde, superiora de l'abadia de Sètfonts (Llenguadoc, Occitània), condemnà el periòdic Le P'tit Falot de Rambervillers (Lorena, França) a 100 francs de multa i a 500 francs per danys i perjudicis per haver reproduït una conferència seva considerada difamatòria. Amb son company recorregué les fires i mercats llenguadocians venen quincalleria. Segons la policia, anava freqüentment a Montpeller (Llenguadoc, Occitània) i es reunia amb diferents companys, com ara Victor Alzas i Pierre Panel. Anys més tard abandonà el moviment llibertari. Segons la policia, sota el nom de Marie Moissac fou l'amant de Sébastien Faure, amb qui havia fet conferències. Desconeixem la data i el lloc de la seva defunció.

    - Benoît Broutchoux: El 7 de novembre de 1879 neix a Essertenne (Franc Comtat, França), a prop de la zona minera de Montceau-les-Mines, el militant i propagandista anarcosindicalista Benoît Broutchoux. Son pare, Sébastien Broutchoux, feia d'obrer metal·lúrgic i sa mare, Claire Lazareth, portà al món vuit infants, dels quals Benoît n'era el major. De ben jovenet començà a treballar de carreter en una granja i amb 14 anys entrà a fer feina de miner a la Companyia de Blanzy a Monceau-les-Mines, on va ferir-se una cama poc després --per aquest accident fou indemnitzat miserablement i d'aleshores ençà mai no pogué caminar correctament. En 1898 s'instal·là a París, on va fer de terrelloner a les obres del metro. Fou en aquesta època que començà a freqüentar els cercles anarquistes, s'afilià al sindicat  anarcosindicalista dels terrelloners, dels pouaters i dels miners i col·laborà en el full àcrata Le Chemineau. A la primavera de 1900 tornà a Monceau-les-Mines, on continuà militant en l'anarcosindicalisme, destacant en les seves confrontacions dialèctiques en els mítings organitzats pels socialistes. El 2 de juny de 1900, arran de la mort per part de la policia de l'obrer metal·lúrgic en vaga Brouillard a Chalon-sur-Saône, pronuncià un violent discurs durant l'enterrament; detingut, fou condemnat «per excitació a la mort i al pillatge, per injúries a l'Exèrcit i paraules ultratjants al govern parlamentari». A penes alliberat, fou novament condemnat en rebel·lia a sis mesos de presó i a dos anys de prohibició de residència pel Tribunal de Chalon per apallissar el comissari Müller. Fugitiu, marxà a Suïssa, on conegué sa futura companya, Fernande Richir. En 1902, amb un fals nom, començà a treballar a la conca minera de Lens. Durant la vaga d'octubre d'aquell any per aconseguir la jornada de vuit hores, s'oposà al sindicat miner reformista encapçalat per Émile Basly. Novament detingut, fou condemnat per «atemptat contra la llibertar del treball» i per «usurpació d'identitat». Quan sortí de la presó en 1903, entrà a formar part del nou sindicat creat pels dissidents i esdevingué redactor del periòdic Le Réveil Syndical i de L'Action Syndicale, des d'on reivindicà la vaga general. Partidari de les tesis neomaltusianes, va fer propaganda de l'amor lliure i del pensament anarcofeminista d'Emma Goldman; per tot això, fou condemnat per «ultratges als bons costums». Arran de la catàstrofe de Courrières, el 10 de març de 1906, on moriren 1.101 persones, fou un dels capdavanters de la vaga que es desfermà a la conca i fou detingut durant una marxa cap a l'alcaldia de Lens de 2.000 vaguistes. Alliberat a finals de maig d'aquell any, esdevingué el gerent del cafè Florange, mentre continuà editant L'Action Syndicale, gràcies a una petita impremta. En 1906, també, participà en el Congrés d'Amiens de la Confederació General del Treball (CGT), amb Georges Dumoulin i Pierre Monatte, on els anarcosindicalismes desbancaren la minoria guesdista i aprovaren la «Carta d'Amiens» que afirmava la defensa de les reivindicacions immediates i diàries, alhora que lluitava per la transformació conjunta de la societat al marge de qualsevol partit i de l'Estat. Aquest document sempre fou reivindicat per la CGT i per altres sindicats (Força Obrera, Confederació Nacional del Treball, etc.). L'agost de 1907 va participar en el Congrés Anarquista Internacional d'Amsterdam, on es va debatre sobre les relacions entre l'anarquisme i el sindicalisme i on es visqué un viu debat entre Pierre Monatte, defensor del sindicalisme revolucionari, i Errico Malatesta, que pensava que el sindicalisme sempre era reformista. Poc abans d'aquest congrés aconseguir fugir de la policia després d'un agitat míting organitzat per protestar contra la detenció del seu amic André Lorulot, però en tornar al seu domicili el setembre, fou detingut i novament condemnat, amb Lorulot, per «incitació de militars a la desobediència». El desembre de 1909 fou novament condemnat per haver atiat els vaguistes de les obres del canal del Nord i encara durant l'estiu de 1911 per haver fet costat la lluita de les mestresses contra l'encariment de la vida. El gener de 1912 fou condemnat a un any de presó, després d'haver-se lliurat dels treballs forçats a les colònies penals, i fou amnistiat el juliol. En 1914, inscrit al «Carnet B» dels antimilitaristes, fou detingut i enviat al front. Dos anys després, gasejat durant un atac alemany, fou llicenciat. Després esdevingué xofer de taxis de la Companyia General de Taxis (CGT), alhora que s'afilià a la Unió Anarquista (UA) i col·laborà en el periòdic CQFD, de l'anarcopacifista Sébastien Faure, i en Le Libertaire. Durant els anys de la Revolució russa intentà conciliar els llibertaris i els bolxevics, però la decepció del comunisme fou absoluta. En 1921 participà en el Congrés de Lille de la CGT, realitzat després del Congrés de Tours de la Secció Francesa de la Internacional Obrera (SFIO), durant el qual aquest partit socialista es dividí arran de la creació de la III Internacional comunista, i fou ferit de bala per un «company reformista». En 1925 la seva salut es va veure molt degradada i en 1931, son fill Germinal de 26 anys, fou assassinat per la policia. En 1940, malalt i en la misèria, es refugià a Villeneuve-sur-Lot. Benoît Broutchoux va morir el 2 de juny de 1944 a Vilanuèva d'Òlt (Aquitània, Occitània).

    Portada del fullet Cris de haine, paroles d'amour. Prose rythmée (1905)

    - Achille Légeret: El 7 de novembre de 1886 neix a Bourges (Centre, França) l'obrer metal·lúrgic, escriptor, antimilitarista, anarquista i anarcosindicalista Achille Pierre Légeret. Son pare era comptable públic de recaptacions i sa mare feia de llevadora; també llogaven habitacions moblades i guardaven els infants, especialment els dels militants anarquistes de Bourges. Després d'haver assistit a l'Escola Nacional Professional de Vierzon (Centre, França), aconseguí una excel·lent educació primària superior. A començaments de segle sembla que formà part de la Libre Pensée. Un informe policíac del 6 de maig de 1904 el qualificà com «l'antimilitarista més violent i perillós de la nostra ciutat». El seu domicili, al carrer Bouillet de Bourges, fou el centre de les activitats llibertàries de la localitat. El juliol de 1905 creà el periòdic anarquista bimensual Les Semailles. Journal anarchiste, que publicà tres números i deixà de sortir en octubre. En aquest any també publicà Soldat-putain. Récits en prose rythmée i Cris de haine, paralos d'amour. Prose rythmée. Entre el 17 i el 18 d'agost de 1905 acollí Miguel Almereyda durant la seva estada a la ciutat. En aquesta època milità en l'Associació Internacional Antimilitarista (AIA) promoguda per Ernest Girault, organitzant reunions publiques amb aquest, aferrant cartells i distribuint pamflets. En aquesta època col·laborà en L'Anarchie. Obrer metal·lúrgic, sembla que treballà als tallers de Maseiras (Poitou-Charantes, França) i participà activament en la lluita sindical, sobretot a partir de 1906, quan va ser nomenat vicepresident de la Borsa del Treball de Bourges, amb la militant llibertària Eugénie Giraud com a secretària. Tingué bones relacions amb els socialistes del grup encapçalat per Édouard Vaillant dins de la Borsa del Treball, sobretot amb el seu secretari general Pierre Hervier, però sense abandonar les seves idees anarquistes. El 7 de juliol de 1907 mantingué una violenta polèmica amb Jean Jaurès en un míting. L'octubre de 1907 va ser cridat a files i incorporat en el 4t Regiment d'Artilleria d'Héricourt (Franc Comtat, França) i la Prefectura el va inscriure en el «Carnet B» dels antimilitaristes. A finals de 1909 va ser llicenciat. El 8 d'octubre de 1911 la lògia maçònica «Travail et Fraternité» de Bourges refusà unànimement d'admetre'l a la francmaçoneria per la seva «notorietat excessivament desafortunada» –el 24 de juliol de 1920 ho va intentar de bell nou i sembla que també sense èxit. El 15 d'octubre de 1911 durant una discussió amb el company llibertari Marius Truchard, qui el va acusar de dedicar «masses atencions» a la seva companya, resultaren ferits ambdós per trets disparats per Légeret amb una pistola. En 1912 prengué la paraula en nombroses reunions públiques a la regió Centre (Bourges, La Guerche, etc.) contra la guerra, parlant en nom de la Federació Comunista Revolucionària (FCR), del Sindicat de Metal·lúrgics de Maseiras i de les Joventuts Sindicalistes Revolucionàries (JSR). Entre 1913 i 1914 fou secretari adjunt de la Borsa del  Treball i amb aquest càrrec realitzà la campanya per la pau i contra la «Llei dels tres anys», que instaurava un servei militar de tres anys amb la finalitat de preparar l'Exèrcit francès per una guerra amb Alemanya. El 26 de maig de 1913, quan els motins a les casernes, la policia escorcollà el seu domicili, però sense trobar res de comprometedor. Quan entre juliol i agost de 1913 el secretari general de la Borsa del Treball Pierre Hervier restà empresonat per la seva participació en la campanya d'«El Sou del Soldat», ocupà el seu lloc. Per mostrar la seva solidaritat amb Pierre Hervier, votà el 3 d'agost de 1913 per la seva candidatura d'amnistia al Consell del Districte. El 31 de juliol de 1914 prengué la paraula, al costat dels socialistes, en un míting contra la guerra, encara que mesos després aquests s'adheriren a les «necessitats de la defensa nacional». El març de 1915 es va reincorporar al 1er Regiment d'Infanteria i en 1917 va ser destinat a uns establiments militars de Bourges. El gener de 1918 declarà el seu internacionalisme contra la guerra. Gràcies a ell, el 28 d'abril de 1918 es va votar per unanimitat la vaga per al Primer de Maig i fou un dels seus organitzadors, aconseguint que gairebé vint mil persones es manifestessin als crits de «Fora la guerra! Visca la Pau!», tot cantant L'Internationale. El vespre d'aquell dia, s'adreçà a la gentada des de la terrassa de la Borsa del Treball i l'endemà sis-centes persones es reuniren a Saint-Germain-du-Puy (Centre, França) per a fer un pícnic, menjant, cantant, ballant i escoltant-lo recitar el seu monòleg Ce que c'est qu'un soldat. La vaga continuà algunes setmanes, però quan entre el 19 i el 20 de maig de 1918 assistí al «Congrés Minoritari» de Sant-Etiève (Arpitània), la vaga s'esgotà i el 22 de maig es votà la represa del treball. Per mesura disciplinària, les autoritats militars suspengueren la seva pròrroga d'incorporació, el destinaren al 85è Regiment d'Infanteria de Cosne-Cours-sur-Loire (Borgonya, França) i l'enviaren al front. En 1919 va ser llicenciat i reprengué la seva activitat sindical enquadrat en la Unió Departamental de la Confederació General del Treball (CGT). El 28 de novembre de 1919 presidí un míting contra la intervenció a Rússia. Segons la policia, en una reunió pública celebrada el 21 de març de 1920 «sostingué de manera violenta les teories bolxevics». Malgrat la seva col·laboració amb el sector esquerrà del Partit Socialista, restà fidel a les seves idees anarquistes. En el Congrés Departamental de la CGT de juliol de 1920 signà amb Venise Gosnat l'ordre del dia «minoritari». No sabem res més de la seva activitat durant els anys posteriors. Achille Légeret va morir el 19 de desembre de 1951 a Tours (Centre, França).

    Carlo Molaschi (1924)

    Carlo Molaschi (1924)

    - Carlo Molaschi: El 7 de novembre de 1886 neix a Milà (Llombardia, Itàlia) el propagandista anarquista i resistent antifeixista Carlo Molaschi, que va fer servir diversos pseudònims (Charles l'Ermite, Iperboreo, Dottor Stockmann, etc.). Sos pares es deien Giacomo Molaschi i Virginia Conti. Fill d'una família modesta, sos pares eren els guardians d'un palau noble a la plaça milanesa del San Sepolcro. Un cop acabat els estudis primaris, amb 11 anys començà a treballar com a dependent en una merceria i, alhora, continuà la seva educació en una escola nocturna. A començament del segle XX començà a acostar-se als cercles llibertaris, arran d'escoltar el propagandista anarquista Pietro Gori. També s'inicià en la lectura de clàssics del pensament, com ara Siddharta Gautama, Friedrich Hölderlin, Henrik Ibsen, Friedrich Nietzsche, Lev Tolstoi, Otto Weininger, Oscar Wilde, etc. En 1901 va ser detingut per primer cop arran d'una vaga general quan distribuïa pamflets subversius als voltants del Teatre Líric de Milà; aquest fet va suposar el seu acomiadament de la feina, cosa que endurí les seves relacions familiars ja difícils. Posteriorment entrà a treballar com a aprenent de comptable a l'establiment industrial «Seveso» de Cusano Milano (Milà, Llombardia, Itàlia), feina que va mantenir durant 16 anys. En aquests primers anys del segle intensificà la seva militància i començà la seva tasca de propagandista, fent servir diversos pseudònims (Charles l'Ermite, Iperboreo, Dottor Stockmann). En aquesta època destaquen les seves col·laboracions sota la rúbrica «In sordina», publicats en el periòdic Il Libertario de La Spezia (Ligúria, Itàlia). També freqüentà el Circolo di Studi Sociali (CSS, Cercle d'Estudis Socials) de Milà. Entre 1909 i 1910 publicà el periòdic Sciarpa Nera. En aquest període mantingué una estreta relació amb l'advocat llibertari Luigi Molinari, que sempre va veure com a un mestre i el seu punt de referència cultural i polític, col·laborant intensament en la Universitat Popular de Molinari i en la revista L'Università Popolare, i participant també activament en la preparació i en la fundació de l'«Escola Moderna Francisco Ferrer», encarregant-se de la seva administració. Tota aquesta activitat li va portat problemes amb la justícia i va ser detingut i apallissat en diverses ocasions a la presó de San Vittore de Milà, cosa que soscavà la seva salut i on s'encomanà del mal que sempre li va acompanyà, la tuberculosi, que procurava contrarestar amb la seva afició per la muntanya. Quan esclatà la Gran Guerra i portà la crisi ideològica dins del moviment llibertari, s'encarregà de la revista Il Rebelle, portaveu dels anarquistes antiintervencionistes, que volia contrarestar la propaganda exercida pels anarquistes intervencionistes integrats en el periòdic La Guerra Sociale. En aquesta època esdevingué, amb Leda Rafanelli, amb qui des de 1913 tindrà una profunda amistat, i Giuseppe Monanni, en el principal exponent de l'anarcoindividualisme d'aleshores, molt important a Milà. En aquesta època es va veure molt influenciat per la filosofia de Friedrich Nietzsche, sobre tot pel que fa al seu pensament sobre el «superhome», i, donada la seva passió pel teatre, per l'obra dramàtica d'Henrik Ibsen, de qui va prendre el pseudònim Dottor Stockmann, especialment pel seu «menyspreu pel ramat humà». Es va veure atret per referents culturals molt diversos i inusuals en el moviment llibertari del moment, com ara el pensament oriental o els textos clàssics dels estoics (Marc Aureli, Epictet, etc.). El febrer de 1915 va ser detingut per distribuir pamflets incitant els soldats a la desobediència. Abans que dirigís la revista Cronaca Libertaria (del 3 d'agost a l'1 de novembre de 1917), conegué la mestra de primària Maria Rossi (Petra, MR, etc.), immersa de ple en la renovació pedagògica portada a terme per Molinari. Va ser assistint a les reunions d'aquest grup pedagògic que Molaschi conegué Rossi i Rafanelli. A començament de 1918 va ser enrolat en el 192 Batalló de la Milícia Territorial de Melzo (Llombardia, Itàlia), però per la seva mala salut va ser llicenciat l'estiu d'aquell any. Aquesta breu experiència militar el va introduí més en el pessimisme i en el pensament individualista i nihilista, que donarà lloc a l'edició de la revista Nichilismo (1920-1921). Durant la primavera de 1918 es casà amb Maria Rossi. En 1919 fundà la llibreria «Tempi Nuovi» i el primer Comitè Pro Víctimes Polítiques de la postguerra. En aquesta època, abans de la fundació de Nichilismo, la seva posició teòrica es caracteritzà per una mena d'«ecumenisme» obert a tots els corrents de pensament. Durant l'estiu de 1920 participà en la fundació del diari Umanità Nova, dirigit per Errico Malatesta, del qual fou un dels grans animadors. Durant l'octubre de 1920, arran de la detenció del grup redactor d'Umanità Nova, assumí durant uns mesos la direcció del periòdic. La suspensió del quinzenal Nichilismo, que havia dirigit entre el 5 d'abril i el 6 de desembre de 1920, coincidí amb una nova mutació teòrica que l'allunyà del corrent individualista, a causa sobretot de la participació de seguidors d'aquesta tendència en actes terroristes, i l'acostà al corrent majoritari del moviment anarquista, més associatiu i solidari, que donà lloc a la publicació de la revista Pagine Libertarie (del 16 de juny de 1921 al 15 de febrer de 1923) i a les seves col·laboracions en la revista Pensiero e Volontà. Després de reactivar l'oficina de correspondència de la Unió Anarquista Italiana (UAI), en 1924 promogué la revista de cultura social L'Università Libera; també en 1924 publicà el llibre Federalismo e libertà, on reivindica el federalisme bakuninista. En 1925 proposà la supressió de la Unió Sindical Italiana (USI) i la creació dels Grups Llibertaris Sindicalistes (GLS) dins de la Confederazione Generale del Lavoro (CGL, Confederació General del Treball). Amb l'arribada del feixisme, la seva activitat política no cessà, fet que li va portar detencions, escorcolls domiciliaris i intimidacions de tota mena. La seva vida i la de la seva companya en aquests anys negres va ser molt dura, buscant feina i intentant mantenir-la. En 1926 se li va prohibir l'ensenyament per motius polítics, cosa que malmenà encara més la seva situació econòmica. Fou en aquest mateix any quan Luigi Fabbri i sa família fugí, amb el seu suport, a Suïssa cap a un exili del qual no retornaria. En 1941, en plena II Guerra Mundial, va ser detingut i confinat al camp de concentració d'Istonio Marino (Vasto, Abruços, Itàlia) durant nou mesos. En tornar-hi, es va traslladar primer a Chiavenna (Llombardia, Itàlia), on participà indirectament en la Resistència de la zona, i després a Cusano Milanino, on entrà en el Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale (CLN, Comitè d'Alliberament Nacional) clandestí i s'integrà activament en la lluita antifeixista. Després de la II Guerra Mundial s'afilià al Partit Socialista Italià (PSI), participant en l'administració municipal de Cusano Milanino, primer rebutjant el càrrec d'alcalde que se li va oferir i posteriorment acceptant ser sots alcalde i una assessoria, amb el suport de sa companya mestra, en la regidoria d'Educació durant el decenni posterior. Carlo Molaschi va morir el 26 de maig de 1953 a Cusano Milanino (Milà, Llombardia, Itàlia) a causa de la seva tuberculosi crònica. En 1959 es va publicar el seu llibre pòstum Pietro Gori i en 1991 es va reeditar el seu Federalismo e libertà. Una escola pública de Cusano Milanino porta el seu nom.

    Albert Camus fotografiat per Cecil Beaton (1946)

    - Albert Camus: El 7 de novembre de 1913 neix a Mondovi (Constantina, Algèria) --actualment Dréan, El-Taref, Algèria-- el novel·lista, assagista, dramaturg, filòsof i pensador anarquista Albert Camus, una de les figures claus de la literatura universal del segle XX. Fill d'una humil família de colons francesos (pieds-noirs) dedicats al conreu de l'anacard al departament de Constantina. Sa mare, Catalina Elena Sintes, nascuda a Birkadem (Algèria), i de família oriünda de Menorca (Illes Balears), era analfabeta i gairebé sorda totalment. Son pare, Lucien Camus, treballava en una finca vitivinícola, a prop de Mondovi, per a un comerciant de vins d'Alger, i era d'origen alsacià, com molts altres pieds-noirs que havien fugit arran de l'annexió d'Alsàcia per Alemanya durant la guerra francoprussiana. Mobilitzat durant la Gran Guerra, fou ferit en combat durant la batalla del Marne i morí a l'hospital de Saint-Brieuc el 17 d'octubre de 1914, fet pel qual sa família es traslladà al barri de Belcourt d'Alger a casa l'àvia materna. Estudià els primers estudis a l'escola municipal de Belcourt, atiat pels professors, sobretot Louis Germain que l'ajudà en les beques, i després, a l'institut becat, per Jean Grenier, qui el va introduir en la lectura de la filosofia, especialment Nietzsche. Després d'aprovar el batxillerat en 1930, obtingué un diploma d'estudis superiors en lletres, en la rama de filosofia, ja que la tuberculosi li va impedir participar en l'examen de llicenciatura. En 1932 publicà els primers textos en la revista Sud. Apassionat pel teatre, fundà a Alger fundà el «Théâtre du Travail», que en 1937 reemplaçà pel «Théâtre de l'Equipe». Altra de les seves passions fou el futbol, jugant en l'equip de lliga regional «Racing Universitaire» d'Alger. En 1933 participà amb el moviment antifeixista Amsterdam-Pleyel i en 1934 s'afilià al Partit Comunista Francès (PCF), però l'any següent abandonà el Partit a causa de profundes discrepàncies, com ara el Pacte Germanosoviètic i el seu suport a l'autonomia del Partit Comunista Algerià (PCA) del PCF. En 1934 es casarà amb Simone Hie, matrimoni que es dissoldrà dos anys després a causa de la dependència d'aquesta als psicofàrmacs; sis anys després es casarà amb Francine Fauré i tingué com a amant «estable» la gran actriu de l'època María Casares, filla de Santiago Casares Quiroga, ministre i president del Consell de Ministres de la II República espanyola. En 1936 estrenà la seva obra teatral Révolte dans les Asturies, sobre la insurrecció i repressió d'aquesta revolució espanyola. En 1937 publicà L'envers et l'endroit i l'any següent Noces. A més de crear una casa de cultura a Alger, entrà a treballar en Alger Républicain, òrgan del Front Popular, creat per Pascal Pia, on la publicació de la seva investigació Misère de la Kabylie tindrà un gran ressò. En 1940 el Govern General d'Algèria prohibeix el diari i el posa en la llista negra per evitar que trobi feina. Aleshores, marxà a París i trobà feina com a secretari de redacció del diari Paris-Soir. Fou exclòs de l'exèrcit per la seva delicada salut minada per la tuberculosi. En 1942 publicà L'étranger, que fou l'inici de la seva celebritat, i Le mythe de Sisyphe. En 1943 entrà en la prestigiosa editorial parisenca Gallimard com a lector de textos i agafà la direcció del periòdic clandestí de la Resistència contra l'ocupació nazi Combat --el seu lema era «De la Resistència a la Revolució»-- quan Pascal Pia fou cridat per ocupar funcions de responsabilitat en aquesta. D'aquesta època són les seves Lettres à un ami allemand (1943-1945). En 1944 estrenà Le malentendu i un any més tard Caligula, escrita en 1938. En 1947 publicà La Peste. En 1948 l'anarquista André Proudhommeaux el presentà, per primer cop, en el moviment llibertari, en una reunió del Cercle d'Estudiants Anarquistes com a simpatitzant que ja estava familiaritzat amb el pensament anarquista i, a partir d'aleshores, escriurà per a publicacions llibertàries, especialment Le Libertaire --fou íntim amic del seu director, Georges Fontenis--, Le Monde Libertaire, Le Révolution Proletarienne, Témoins, Défense de l'Homme, Volontà i Solidaridad Obrera, òrgan d'expressió de la Confederació Nacional del Treball (CNT), a les reunions de la qual era assidu. Els temes dels seus articles seran força diversos (la bomba atòmica, el moviment de descolonització, la pena de mort, la repressió als països de l'Est, la dictadura del general Franco, etc.), però sempre punyents. Amb el gruix del moviment anarquista, va fer costat la revolta de 1953 a l'Alemanya Oriental i participà en gran nombre d'actes organitzats pel moviment llibertari per denunciar la repressió franquista a Espanya. També va fer costat els anarquistes en 1956, primer a favor de l'aixecament dels treballadors polonesos a Poznan i després en la Revolució hongaresa, i s'afilià a la Federació Anarquista (FA). En 1952 trencà amb Jean-Paul Sartre arran de la publicació en Les Temps Modernes de l'article que aquest encarregà a Francis Jeanson, on li reprotxava que la seva rebel·lia era «deliberadament estètica». El 8 de novembre de 1955 publicarà una nota en L'Express en defensa del militant llibertari Pierre Morain, condemnat a un any de presó. L'estiu d'aquell any farà costat els redactors del periòdic Le Libertaire i el seu director, Fontenis, i altres militants de la FA detinguts i processats per un tribunal militar. En 1956, a Alger, llançà la seva «Crida a la treva civil», on demanà als combatents independentistes algerians i a l'exèrcit francès que es respectés la població civil, text que fou força criticat per determinats sectors que no van entendre el seu missatge. També en 1956 publicà La chute i l'any següent L'exil et le royaume. En 1957 se li concedí el Premi Nobel de Literatura pel «conjunt d'una obra que posa de relleu els problemes que es plantegen en la consciència dels homes d'avui». A partir de 1959 creà la revista Liberté, per fer costat el moviment llibertari d'objecció de consciència al militarisme (Maurice Laisant, Louis Lecoin, etc.). El seu pensament filosòfic s'oposà al fals humanisme cristià, al marxisme i a l'existencialisme, i la seva «filosofia de l'absurd», lluita contra totes les ideologies i abstraccions no humanes, sempre des d'una perspectiva llibertària. Un bon resum d'aquest pensament es troba en el seu llibre L'homme révolté (1951), on blasma contra tota ideologia «finalista», contra la història i la «tirania de les ideologies», i que fou durament atacat per la seva reivindicació de la revolta pel comunisme estalinista --amb l'anarquista Gaston Leval mantingué una polèmica sobre aquesta obra en Le Libertaire. Albert Camus va morir el 4 de gener de 1960 a prop de Le Petit-Villeblevin (Borgonya, França) en una absurd accident de cotxe i fou enterrat a Lourmarin (Provença, Occitània), on havia comprat una casa. Deixà inconclús un manuscrit «autobiogràfic», Le premier homme, que fou publicat per sa filla en 1994.

    Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater to Present ¡GUARACHA! - A MUSICAL Off-Broadway World Premiere

     Cache   

    Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater announces premiere of a new ensemble musical ¡GUARACHA!, based on international hit novel La guaracha del Macho Camacho by Luis Rafael Sánchez. Initially conceived in collaboration with the late Miriam Colón, the work of adaptation and direction is helmed by Rosalba Rolón, whose many musical theater credits as Artistic Director of Pregones/PRTT include audience favorites I Like It Like That and Dancing In My Cockroach Killers. ¡GUARACHA!

    Luis Rafael Sánchez published La guaracha del Macho Camacho (Macho Camacho's Beat) in 1976. The novel was the first by a major Puerto Rican playwright whose works have been staged across the Spanish-speaking world and in the United States, and whose ability to find beauty and meaning in chaotic urbanity is rich, funny, and heartfelt. The novel was singular in its timing and keen insight into postmodern life, and it has left a meteoric impact in the literary world.

    For its first-ever stage adaptation, Doris Duke Artist Award and Creative Capital winner Rosalba Rolón packs all the wit and bite of Sánchez's serpentine text into a dazzling piece of 21st century Latinx theater. The backdrop is an epic afternoon traffic-jam in mid-1970s San Juan, Puerto Rico. The sun is blazing hot and hit song "La vida es una cosa fenomenal" (Life Is A Phenomenal Thing) blares out of every car radio. A cast of wild, mostly lovable, and decidedly over the top characters -The Deejay, The Senator, The Socialite Wife, The Son, The Mistress, and Doña Chon, the nosy neighbor- poke fun at a situation most messy, most sticky, and most certainly out of control!

    One by one, in counterpoint and in unison, in English and in Spanish, each of the characters in ¡GUARACHA! reveals their innermost dreams and perplexities, and how we're all tangled up in each other's lives. Festive and Caribbean to the core, it is a visual and rhythmic theater experience sure to dazzle all theatergoers!

    CREDITS: Source novel by Luis Rafael Sánchez. Book, Lyrics & Direction: Rosalba Rolón. Music & Arrangements: Desmar Guevara. Choreography: Sita Frederick. Lighting Design: Lucrecia Briceño. Sets & Costumes: Harry Nadal. Projection Design: Melisa Ramos. Sound Engineer: Milton Ruiz.

    ENSEMBLE CAST: Rossmery Almonte, Yaraní del Valle, Gilberto Gabriel, Gabriel Hernández, Mario Mattei, Diana Pou, and 5-Piece Musical Band.
