Does Shakib deserve sympathy or scorn?

 Cache   
As protests break out in Bangladesh following Shakib Al Hasan's corruption ban, we'll ask whether the game should have any sympathy for the star all-rounder who failed to report illegal approaches from a bookmaker. It's party time in Papua New Guinea and Namibia as both teams reach the men's Twenty20 World Cup for the first time. And meet the Pakistani women's star breaking new ground in Australia.

Teacher Tuesday - Mrs. Tautu

Teacher Tuesday - Mrs. Tautu

Mrs. Caroline Tautu is one of our amazing first grade teachers. You can always count on her to have a smile on her face and a positive attitude.  We are lucky to have this beloved teacher working here at Brookside. 

On the weekend, Mrs. Tautu loves to spend time with her husband Austin and their  families. They like to go to the gym, relax at home, go on hikes with their dog Kona and go out to eat with their friends! 

If you could have lunch with any fictional character, who would it be? “This is hard! I guess I would have to go back to my childhood with this one as well and say Willy Wonka! I loved that book in the 3rd grade and the movies as well. He would be very interesting to eat lunch with! :)”

Who was your favorite teacher and why? “I had two favorite teachers growing up. One was my fourth grade teacher, I remember every lesson being super interesting and she always made me feel important. My other favorite teacher was one of my junior high teachers that I had every year for a couple different subjects. She genuinely got to know her students and encouraged me. She complimented my work and made me feel like I was seen in her class.”

If given $1000, she would probably buy clothes, groceries, random things she want from amazon or a new furniture/decorations for her house!

For karaoke night, Mrs. Tautu would choose to sing: Love Will Find a Way by Christina Aguilera

Who or what inspires you? Mrs. Tautu says, “I am inspired all the time by many different things in my life! I am always inspired by those that I love and are close to me. My husband inspires me because he works really hard every day and comes home with a smile on his face. Its a rare day if you hear Austin complaining about something. He always reminds me that worrying it suffering twice! One thing I turn to if I am lacking inspiration is I find quotes or even just one word that carries value for me and post it somewhere where I can read it every day. It gives me a little boost and pushes me to do better and be better.”

Share a memory or two of school:  Two of the strongest memories of mine in elementary school both include me winning a drawing! Apparently, I was very lucky in my younger days!

  • When I was in second grade I put my name in a drawing to take home our class guinea pigs at the end of the year. I was so excited when I won the drawing but my mom was a little upset. I hadn't asked her if I could enter the drawing in the first place! We took the two guinea pigs home and lived our their days with us! 
  • I remember in Kindergarten the 2002 Olympics were in Salt Lake! Each class had a drawing and one kid got to ride a bus up to Salt Lake and watch a cross country skiing event. I won the drawing in my class and ended up meeting a new friend on the bus that I am still friends with today! 

What is your favorite thing to teach every year? “I love teaching our "How To" writing unit! It's so fun to see what the kids decided to write about and their stories always turn out awesome.” 

What is the best thing about your job? “I think the best part of my job is who I get to work with. They make my job different every day, new and exciting and entertaining! They make me laugh and keep me on my toes. They teach me a lot about myself and I love coming to work everyday because of them.”

Favorites:

  • Pizza:Sausage and olive pizza from Mod Pizza!
  • book/author:I have always loved the book Charlotte's Web ever since I was a little girl! It will forever be my favorite. 
  • Ice cream:I really love pineapple ice cream! A dole whip float is my very favorite treat!
  • Sport:My favorite sport to play is Volleyball! My favorite sport to watch is football. 
  • Color: I love any neutral color! I wear a lot of gray, tan and black, it sounds boring, but it's the truth! 
  • Snack:I love cottage cheese with grapes or pineapple for a snack!
  • Zoo Animal:I love to see the giraffes when I go to the zoo!
  • Recess game:I loved to do anything as long as I was with my friends. We loved to play soccer with the boys or jump rope, double dutch was our favorite.

Lake Michigan College to host refugee speakers, other events for International Education Week

Lake Michigan College will host a series of public and student events on its Benton Harbor campus in honor of International Education Week, November 18-22. 

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. It is celebrated annually across the nation to acknowledge the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. 

LMC will host a free, public Lunch and Learn event on Thursday, November 21, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Todd Center, rooms 1304 -1308. Guest speakers Asu Iyakaremye and Imran Mohammad will speak about their experiences as refugees, followed by a question and answer session. LMC will provide international coffee and chocolates made by LMC culinary professor and chocolatier, Chef Luis Amado. Guests should bring their own lunch.

Twenty-five-year-old Imran Mohammad was born stateless in Rohingya. At age 16, he fled Myanmar to save his life and search for freedom. He ended up in a Papua New Guinea detention center on Manus Island for four years where he taught himself to read and write in English before arriving in Chicago in 2018. His story has been featured in the New York Times and ABC’s “Foreign Correspondent” series.  

Asu Iyakaremye was just three-years-old when he and his parents escaped the 1994 Rwandan genocide. They eventually landed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Iyakaremye attended college and now works at Bethany Christian Services helping unaccompanied refugee children.    

Both men are making the most of their new lives in the U.S. as they work through the trauma they experienced on their journeys. They share their stories to bring hope and understanding to others.  

Other International Education Week events include “Listen to Our Stories – Beyond the Borders” on Monday, November 18, noon – 2 p.m in the Hawk’s Nest second floor. Guests can view poster displays and picture collages, and hear student-led presentations and audio stories. 

Trivia Tuesday will be on Tuesday, November 19, noon – 1 p.m. in the Hawk’s Nest second floor. Student teams will compete in a Jeopardy-style game to test their knowledge of international facts.

International Celebration Day will be held Wednesday, November 20 with a parade beginning at 11 a.m. at the Welch Center, a program at noon in the Main Building, and a celebration at 12:30 p.m. in the Hawk’s Nest, second floor.

Discovery of the transantarctic distribution of the genus Metanteon Olmi (Hymenoptera: Dryinidae), with description of a new species from New Caledonia

 Cache   

Metanteon poirieri sp. nov. (Hymenoptera: Dryinidae: Anteoninae) is described from New Caledonia. The genus Metanteon Olmi, 1984, was known only from the southern region of Argentina and Chile. The unique species attributed previously to this genus is M. aerias (Walker, 1839), collected in Chile by Charles Darwin during his famous trip on the HMS Beagle. M. aerias is associated only with leafhoppers feeding on Southern Beeches (Nothofagus spp.), a genus of Nothofagaceae including species of trees and shrubs native to the southern Hemisphere in southern South America (Argentina, Chile) and Australasia (east and southeast Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and New Caledonia). Like Nothofagus, Metanteon is a transantarctic organism.

Mali: WHO AFRO Outbreaks and Other Emergencies, Week 44: 28 October - 3 November 2019 Data as reported by: 17:00; 3 November 2019

 Cache   
Source: World Health Organization
Country: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia

Overview

This Weekly Bulletin focuses on public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 68 events in the region. This week’s main articles cover key new and ongoing events, including:

  • Measles in Lesotho

  • Hepatitis E in Namibia

  • Humanitarian crisis in Mali

  • Ebola virus disease in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

For each of these events, a brief description, followed by public health measures implemented and an interpretation of the situation is provided.

A table is provided at the end of the bulletin with information on all new and ongoing public health events currently being monitored in the region, as well as recent events that have largely been controlled and thus closed.

Major issues and challenges include:

  • The hepatitis E outbreak first identified in Namibia in December 2017 continues, despite response efforts made to date to halt ongoing transmission of the virus. The major drivers of the outbreak remain the same, limited access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor personal and food safety practices. Novel initiatives are therefore needed to address the outbreak such as finalising the review of the relevance and feasibility of a vaccination intervention. There is also a need to sustain conventional control activities, particularly in the informal settlements, and strengthen surveillance and coordination mechanisms in all the affected areas.

  • The humanitarian situation in Mali remains complex and volatile. The number of IDPs has continued to rise as a result of the deteriorating security context and the impact of floods experienced earlier in the year. As well as supporting the immediate needs of the population, the resilience of the health system to epidemics and public health emergencies needs to be reinforced.
    Furthermore, local and international authorities and partners must continue to advocate for peace in the region in order to relieve the suffering of this vulnerable population.

Indonesia Masih Dalam Daftar Black List Tokyo MOU Porst State Control

 Cache   

Jakarta, Gotoseajobs.com -. PORT STATE CONTROL (PSC)
Port State control (PSC) merupakan Lembaga/ organisasi yang berfungsi melakukan pengawasan terhadap kapal kapal asing yang memasuki wilayah pelabuhan untuk memastikan bahwa kondisi kapal kapal tersebut layak dan dioperasikan sesuai dengan standar Internasional dalam hal keselamatan dan keamanan serta pencegahan pencemaran lingkungan maritim.


Indonesia sebagai salah satu anggota International Maritime Organization (IMO) tergabung dalam Asia Pacific Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control, yang dikenal dengan nama TOKYO MOU yang beranggotakan 20 Negara, yaitu negara negara yang secara geografis terletak dikawasan Asia - Pacific. 20 Negara tersebut adalah : 

Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Fiji, Hong Kong (China), Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russian Federation, Singapore, Thailand, Vanuatu dan Viet Nam.


Setiap Tahun TOKYO MOU menerbitkan Laporan Tahunan mengenai Aktifitas Port State Control dikawasan Asia Pacific (Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia - Pacific Region).


Dalam melaksanakan aktifitasnya melakukan fungsi pengawasan ke kapal kapal, tidak ada kaitannya dengan kondisi politik suatu negara. 

PSC selalu mengacu pada instrumen yang jelas sebagai dasar dalam melakukan inspeksi, Instrumen tersebut adalah :

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Load Lines, 1966;

− Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional tentang LoadLines, 1966, dan amandemennya;

− Konvensi Internasional for Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, dan Amandemennya;

− Protocol of 1978 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

− Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

− Konvensi Internasional for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships 1973, dimodifikasi oleh Protocol of 1978 yang berkaitan dengannya, dan amandemennya;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers,
1978, dan Amandemennya;

− Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Tonnage Measurement of Ships, 1969;

− Merchant Shipping (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1976 (ILO Convention No. 147);

− Maritime Labour Convention, 2006;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships, 2001;

− Protocol of 1992 to amend the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, 1969;

− Konvensi Internasional untuk Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004.


Dari SUMMARY OF PORT STATE INSPECTION DATA 2016 – 2018, tercatat bahwa dari 659 kapal berbendera Indonesia yang di inspeksi oleh Port State, 58 diantaranya ditahan oleh port state / Detention. Excess factor sebesar 1.3 %. 

Sehingga Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region 2018 yang diterbitkan oleh TOKYO MOU, telah menempatkan Indonesia dalam kategori BLACK LIST, kalah jauh dibandingkan dengan negara tetangga kita Malaysia, dari 571 kapal berbendera Malaysia yang di inspeksi oleh Port state, hanya 14 kapal yang ditahan oleh Port State, dengan Excess factor sebesar minus 1.05 % telah menempatkan Malaysia dalam kategori Whitelist, sementara itu Indonesia dengan sangat agresif berwacana ingin menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA.


Sungguh miris, bagaimana mungkin Indonesia menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA apabila Indonesia masih berada dalam kategori Blacklist. 

Rasanya sangat jauh panggang dari api.
Indonesia berada pada kategori Blacklist oleh Tokyo MOU merupakan gambaran umum kondisi  Pelayaran Indonesia dimata dunia.


Sah sah saja Jika Indonesia berwacana ingin menjadi Poros Maritim dunia, tidak ada yang salah dengan wacana tersebut namun harus diikuti dengan tindakan yang nyata dalam menyiapkan sumber daya manusia yang mumpuni serta komitmen yang kuat dari pemerintah dan pelaku usaha/ pemangku kepentingan  untuk dapat mewujudkan keinginan tersebut. 

Dengan situasi dan  kondisi dunia Pelayaran Indonesia saat ini, apa mungkin ? ( Rudy Kumesan )

A Hermeneutic of Suspicion

 Cache   

The Amazon Synod was remarkable for so many good things. Pope Francis showed genuine respect to the indigenous people of the Amazon, the bishops addressed the pastoral needs of the region with breakthrough recommendations to ordain married men and formally recognize the ministry of women, and participants raised up ecological degradation and predatory practices toward both the earth and the poor as urgent challenges of our time. It’s a shame that what many will remember from this synod instead is a two-foot-high wooden statue of a pregnant woman, which became the focus of ire, misunderstanding, fear, public controversy, and ultimately vandalism.

The small statue I am speaking of is, of course, the folk-art depiction of a pregnant woman that was placed on display, first at a tree-planting ceremony organized by Franciscans and later in a Roman church. At the tree planting a number of items representing life in the Amazon were arranged in a central position on the lawn of the Vatican gardens, with the assembly gathered around them in a circle: a canoe; a cloth covered with images of a river and plants; representations of birds and fish; a net; and several human figures, including martyrs to the faith and two pregnant native women, kneeling, in an introspective pose, with a child visible in the womb of each one. During the ceremony, an Amazonian woman picked up one of these folk-art pieces and presented it to Pope Francis, who blessed it. She called it “Our Lady of the Amazon” as she presented it to him (a video of the event shows this clearly, although not all of her words are audible). Some speculated that the two pregnant women together represented the Visitation, although this was never stated.

No one in the delegation who set up the display, nor those in the organizing committee of the synod who had experience in the region, seemed at all ruffled by the presence of the images of the pregnant women. Pope Francis, who has a great respect for popular piety, was the least disturbed of all. He received the woman kindly, and gave his blessing to the image. When asked about the provenance of the figure, Fr. Fernando Lopez, SJ, an itinerant preacher who travels to the remote regions of the Amazon with a missionary group, said they had been using this image for years. They bought it in an artisan’s market in Brazil.

He explained that it represents life—an explanation similar to those offered by Paolo Ruffini of the Vatican Dicastery of Communications, and by Bishop David Guinea, a missionary bishop in Peru, who pointed out that he had seen this image on other occasions. “We all have different interpretations: the Virgin Mary, Mother Earth…women, fertility, life; Amazonia is meant to be full of life,” he said. The bishop’s answer, although hardly satisfying to those who wished to pin down the meaning to one thing, offered a good example of how multivalent symbols work. The cross, to take a classic example, embraces both suffering and glory, redemption and solidarity—it is never just one thing. Fr. Lopez was also comfortable making reference to the allusive qualities of the image of the pregnant woman: “We were all born from a mother, and we all have a mother who was pregnant and delivered us to life…. It’s a mystery, life itself, that signifies in a way that God is also mother, he’s engendered us and cares for life.” All of these interpretations are, strictly speaking, Christian.

Afterwards the display was transferred to the Carmelite church of St. Mary Transpontina, down the street from St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. These figures and objects were intended to rest there as a sign of the living realities and theological perspectives that are part of the Amazonian region, realities that the synod wished to engage through their work and deliberations. The idea—familiar to anyone who has ever prepared a prayer corner or a focus table for a religious gathering—was that these tangible objects would bring to mind the spiritual realities we naturally associate with them, such as the sacredness of life, the beauty and fragility of the rainforest, the blessing of work, the necessity of witness, and so on, and so inspire people to pray for the synod. At least, that was what was supposed to happen.

What actually happened was a good deal less edifying. A flurry of outrage, prompted by the false idea that the statues and the ceremony itself were idolatrous, broke out in the right-wing press and across social media. Every explanation offered for the presence and meaning of the statuettes was subjected to a hermeneutic of suspicion, and the more reasonable interpretations were discarded in favor of the most damning ones. Self-appointed guardians of orthodoxy, whipped into a frenzy of zealotry by the speculation that the figure actually represented Pachamama, an Andean female deity, stole the artworks from the church and threw them into the Tiber.

There are plenty of images of Pachamama, and some show her pregnant, but not one of them looks like the statuette from the Vatican ceremony.

Although the actual act of vandalism may have been spontaneous, the breakdown of understanding and civility that preceded it was the fruit of organized efforts to sabotage the synod. Indeed, charges of idolatry were being made before the synod began or anyone had seen the statue. Concerns about the “dangers” of inculturation, and dark warnings about the supposedly pagan nature of ecological themes in Pope Francis’s teachings, were already in the air.

To give a couple of examples: In June, the retired German Cardinal Walter Brandmüller published a public condemnation of the synod through journalist Sandro Magister’s blog. This broadside against the synod was released simultaneously in five different languages. Brandmüller deemed the working document “heretical” for its references to “Mother Earth,” which he decried as expressions of a “pantheistic idolatry of nature.” He was soon seconded by American Cardinal Raymond Burke, with whom he had coauthored the famous “dubia” in 2016, challenging Francis on the orthodoxy of his exhortation Amoris laetitia.

Journalist Christopher White, writing in Crux in September, also profiled a group called the “Pan-Amazon Synod Watch.” This “hub of resistance” was sponsored by the Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira Institute (IPCO) and the Societies for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), a traditionalist right-wing Brazilian organization devoted to capitalism. Oliveira, who died in 1995, was himself a traditionalist and strongly opposed to Vatican II. He was also particularly disdainful of indigenous peoples, whom he considered crypto-pagans. Their communitarian impulses, in Oliveria’s view, constitute a threat to civilization, which is bound up with private property. The TFP hosted a conference in Rome at the time of the synod, where they showcased their critique of everything they associated with it, from climate science to liberation theology. Cardinal Burke attended, and Cardinal Brandmüller closed the conference.

LifeSiteNews also attended this conference and interviewed a tribal leader who spoke at it, Jonas Marcolino Macuxi. Macuxi is an Evangelical Protestant. According to the article, he said the ritual on the Vatican lawn looked “decidedly ‘pagan.’” But Pedro Gabriel, a Portuguese doctor who has written extensively and carefully about the controversy at the website “Where Peter Is,” noted that if you actually listen to the video, you can see that Macuxi never used the word pagan. He says that the use of smoke for purification is primitive, and “we don’t do that.” But one is left to wonder if he might have said the same thing about liturgical uses of incense or about praying before statues of the saints—Catholic practices that many Evangelicals regard as improper. This is but one example of how an eagerness to tar the synod and Pope Francis with charges of syncretism and heresy ran ahead of the facts.

As the synod wore on, critics of the pope continued to fan the flames of anxiety and alarm—some even going so far as to compare the presence of the female figures to “the abomination of desolation” spoken of in Scripture, or to call their introduction into a church “a grave sin, a crime against the divine law” (this last from Cardinal Gerhard Müller, former head of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, who ought to know better). Some who viewed the video of the tree-planting ceremony spied what they thought was a phallic symbol in the display, and their panic deepened. They later were forced to admit that what they saw was merely the upraised arm of another statuette, lying on the ground, representing one of the martyrs of the Amazon. Scandal and outrage were easily aroused by, well, reading into things stuff that wasn’t there.

It is worth noting that there was nothing particularly Pachamama-like about the statues that were thrown into the Tiber, except that they were women. (Pope Francis called them “statues of the pachamama” when he announced that the police had recovered them from the river, but his use of this name was only because the Italian media had used it, according to Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni.) You can look online for images of Pachamama and there are dozens. The Andean goddess’s name has been emblazoned on all kinds of things, including tours, ecological institutes, music groups, artworks, face creams, and more. There are plenty of images of Pachamama, and some show her pregnant, but not one of them looks like the statuette from the Vatican ceremony, whose outstanding qualities are (a) her humility, and (b) the child within her womb, who is visible and depicted with care as an individual. More typically, Pachamama is shown with an effusion of fruit and flowers around her, proud of her fertility, which is abundant; the child in her womb is not so important because, after all, she is a nature goddess and the fecundity of nature is wider than that.

It therefore seems clear to me that whether or not one could dig up a layer of indigenous nature-religion underlying the images that were brought into the Vatican and later vandalized, the image as it stands possesses genuine Christian qualities—specifically humility, dignity, and respect for both women and unborn children. These qualities may have drawn Christian believers to it in the first place, when they saw and purchased it in a market in Brazil. It is good that the Pope received it respectfully and blessed it. It belongs within the church, as a gift of the Amazonian people to the rich and varied patrimony of Catholicism.

Pope Saint Paul VI, in his landmark exhortation on evangelization in 1975, wrote that “The Church is an evangelizer, but she begins by being evangelized herself” (no. 15). He also wrote, with great respect, that non-Christian and pre-Christian religions “are all impregnated with innumerable ‘seeds of the Word’ and can constitute a true ‘preparation for the Gospel’” (no. 53). There it is again—the symbol of pregnancy—this time used to describe the church in its work of evangelization. Perhaps rather than the image of the pregnant woman suggesting nature-worship, it ought to suggest to us that the Amazonian people are bringing to fruition the “seeds of the Word” that they have received. Perhaps if we could accept it in the right spirit, we might even be a little more evangelized ourselves.

Ghrelin Attenuates Neuroinflammation and Demyelination in Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis Involving NLRP3 Inflammasome Signaling Pathway and Pyroptosis

 Cache   

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune and degenerative disease of the central nervous system, and conventional treatments have limited efficacy or side effects. Ghrelin, a 28-amino acid octanoylated peptide, has been reported to have neuroprotective effects, including anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation, and anti-apoptosis. Pyroptosis, also called inflammatory cell death, is triggered by overly active inflammasomes and accompanied by the production of numerous cytokines. As immune dysfunction is primarily involved in the pathogenesis of MS, this study aimed to explore the therapeutic effects and precise functional mechanisms of ghrelin against the nod-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome and pyroptosis in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Sprague Dawley rats were immunized with guinea pig spinal cord homogenates and pertussis toxin to develop an EAE model. All rats were randomly divided into four groups: normal control group, EAE group, EAE + ghrelin group, and ghrelin control group. EAE rats showed abnormal behavioral scores and body weight changes. Histologic analysis displayed severe inflammatory infiltration and demyelination in the brain and spinal cord of EAE rats. Ghrelin treatments potently restored these abnormal changes. In addition, the ghrelin-treated EAE group showed significantly downregulated expression of inflammatory cytokines. The expression of proteins involved in the NLRP3 signaling pathway and pyroptosis was decreased as well. We also found that the anti-inflammatory effect of ghrelin was associated with inhibition of nuclear factor (NF)-κB activation. Compared with rats in the healthy control group, rats in the ghrelin control group did not show statistically significant changes in histologic examinations, pro-inflammatory cytokines production, or molecules involved in the NLRP3 signaling pathway, which indicated that ghrelin induced no side effects in the animals of our study. Our findings provide more insight into the use of ghrelin as a novel candidate for MS.

GHD celebrates 10 years in Papua New Guinea

 Cache   

GHD celebrated a milestone 10 year anniversary of its Papua New Guinea (PNG) office this month.

The events highlighted GHD’s achievements in PNG so far, and thanked clients and employees for their support.

Even though GHD has been undertaking projects in the country since 1967, its local office was set up 10 years ago starting with just two employees. The company now has six full-time employees along with an additional 37 GHD employees working in Port Moresby to deliver the PNG Transport Sector Support Program 2 for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Government of PNG.

Chairman Rob Knott led a delegation of senior leaders from Australia to Port Moresby to celebrate the occasion with employees and clients.

Rob shared that "coming back to see the PNG office represents an emotional return for me where the vision of having a PNG office had been realised well beyond expectations."

May Ngui, Canberra Region General Manager, said, "We see this PNG office as central to our broader strategic role in the Indo-Pacific. Our growing team can and will be a vibrant and energised centre of capability for our local geotechnical team and for on-the-ground project management of a wide range of work."

GHD is well established in the Indo-Pacific region with offices in PNG, Fiji, New Zealand, Philippines, Guam and Saipan, with services spanning the global markets of water, energy and resources, environment, property and buildings, and transportation


          

Cardinal Sarah Warns Against Priests Deceiving Souls in the Confessional

 Cache   

For the Guinean prelate, it is a mistake to transform the sacrament of Penance into a simple meeting between two people: “we should conduct ourselves like loving fathers” in this sacrament, “but banish an excess of sentimentality,” he warned.

Cardinal Sarah also showed how important it is for confessors to be men of doctrine:

the confessional should not be a torture chamber, but nor should it be a laboratory for doctrinal experiments. We must avoid giving indications that go against doctrine.

Confessors must therefore be fully formed on dogma and the moral teaching of the Church. “This is a necessity if we wish to guide the people who need us,” recalled the prefect of the liturgy, adding, “souls do not need to be deceived, they need to be guided” – remarks that say much about the shortcomings in the formation of priests and the prevailing permissiveness.

Cardinal Sarah ended by urging priests to turn off their cellphones before entering the confessional:

We have heard of the existence of text messages from priests on social networks during confession! I think this is a form of practical atheism. There is no greater sinner in such a situation than the priest.

He concluded, “when people go to confession and listen, they are listening to Christ.”

At the second Meeting of the Missionaries of Mercy that was held in Rome from April 7 to 11, 2018, Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, spoke on the sacrament of confession.

Addressing violence and sexual abuse against women in Papua New Guinea

 Cache   

For many women in Papua New Guinea (PNG), violence and abuse are part of their daily lives. Domestic and sexual violence are reported to be the cause of many homicides occurring in PNG. The incidence of violence and abuse happens to be a common trend where in many instances, women fall victim to men’s abusive behaviour and actions. PNG’s former Health Minister, Michael Malabag on 20 March 2019 reported, 'almost 68% of women experience violence and abuses are worsening.'

Some people with very traditional beliefs think they have the right to control their partner and that women aren’t equal to men.

Many strategies have been adopted by the government over the years to deal with gender based violence. However, a recent Post Courier article, "Police report rise in homicide, sexual violence", on 20 March 2019 suggests that not enough resources had been committed, and government and community support and attention is inadequate.

One reason for PNG’s failure in finding effective tactics to resolve violence is because the focus has been on addressing the consequences of violence, and ignoring the root causes of why it occurs. Priority should be on education and awareness about violence, rather than just jailing offenders.

To their credit, there are already a number of community initiatives and groups who focus on conducting public awareness and education on the causes of violence, its consequences, laws against it, and ways of preventing and resolving disputes. But more is needed.

The fight against violence demands the full participation of every individual and organisation. The approach to addressing violence has to change. The primary objective must be to eliminate the root cause of violence and abuse and, through education and awareness, change the mindset of individuals. With government support, voluntary groups, churches, community associations, and specifically designated governmental organisations must be given the authority and capacity to carry out regular awareness and education on violence prevention. The aim needs to be to: break traditional rules and structures, especially those that encourage violence and gender inequality; and inform people about the rule of law and that crimes are punishable by sanctions.

Government must especially encourage the active engagement of the younger generation in learning about, and speaking out against, gender based violence through school, church, sport and music activities. Apart from learning basic subjects like maths and social science, students must also be taught about issues relating to gender based violence and engage in awareness programs. There are a number of examples where this is already happening, but more is needed. Indeed, a policy is needed that mandates that all schools teach compulsory courses on violence, conflict management, and sexual education.

Children and youth should be actively involved in programs like youth camps, excursions and sport competitions, where individuals are taught to respect the opposite gender and get involved in debates about violence and its impacts on society. Young people should also be encouraged to compose more songs and poems that speak against violence. If children are taught that violence is bad, these same individuals will grow into decent human beings who will know how to resolve conflicts, in turn minimising the probability of domestic violence.

The practical way to address the problem of violence and abuse against women in PNG is both to support the survivors of violence and to address the root causes. While police departments need to improve the way they handle the resolution of disputes and punish offenders, the focus needs to be on education and awareness to change the mindsets of individuals. This fight requires the commitment and participation of all actors from all sectors and levels.

António Estácio, V Encontro Nacional
da Tabanca Grande, Monte Real, 2010. Foto; 
1. Já na altura demos o devido destaque a esta publicação do nosso camarada e amigo António Estácio (n. 1947, em Bissau, fez o serviço militar em Angola, em 1970/72),  que representou vários anos de pesquisa, com recurso a várias técnicas (entrevistas, análise documental, observação participante, viagem a Bissau e Bolama em 2006, etc. , tudo a expensas do autor.)


E a propósito das mudanças de toponimia de Bissau, fomos revisitar o livrinho "Nha Bijagó: respeitada personalidade da sociedade guineense (1871-1959)" (edição de autor, 2011, 159 pp., il,).  (**)

Do prefácio, escrito por Eduardo Ferreira, respigamos entretanto os seguntes excertos (*):

(...) Ao ler este livro  não podemos deixar de pensar nas grandes figuras femininas, que foram as “sinharas” e que tanta influência tiveram na costa ocidental africana, em particular nos Rios da Guiné, entre o século XVI e finais do século XIX. 

Essas mulheres que eram na sua maioria crioulas, geriam com enorme maestria os negócios dos seus maridos europeus ou eurodescendentes, resolvendo conflitos, realizando pactos com as autoridades locais, de modo a que as actividades comerciais decorressem sem delongas e fossem coroadas de êxito. A sua condição de crioula, dava à “sinhara” uma capacidade negocial ímpar, pois sendo detentora de uma dupla identidade cultural, era com facilidade que fazia a ponte entre as populações locais e os alógenos,  nomeadamente os europeus. 

Ficaram famosas na Guiné algumas dessas “sinharas”, como a Bibiana Vaz, a Aurélia Correia conhecida por “mamé Aurélia”, a Júlia Silva Cardoso também conhecida como “mamé Júlia” e a Rosa Carvalho Alvarenga, mãe de Honório Pereira Barreto, entre muitas outras. 

Leopoldina Ferreira, vulgo “Nha Bijagó”, é em meu entender uma das últimas grandes “sinharas” da Guiné, pois o seu perfil enquadra-se na perfeição no papel desempenhado por essas influentes mulheres africanas, referenciadas por diversos autores como foi o caso de André Álvares d’ Almada na sua obra “Tratado Breve dos Rios de Guiné do Cabo Verde” de 1594 ou de George E. Brooks com “Eurafricans in Western Africa” publicado em 2004 ou ainda Philip J. Havik com “Trade in the Guinea-Bissau Region: the role of african and luso-african women in the trade networks from early 16th to the mid 19th century” publicado em 1994, para apenas citar alguns.

(...) Um aspecto particularmente interessante nesta obra de A. J. Estácio, é a ligação cronológica que o mesmo faz, entre importantes acontecimentos políticos, administrativos e militares, que tiveram lugar na então Guiné Portuguesa, e as diversas fases etárias da biografada, ainda que esses factos não tenham qualquer ligação directa com a personagem tratada neste livro! 

O autor quis desse modo, dar-nos a conhecer alguns factos da história da então colónia/província da Guiné, que tiveram lugar entre 1870 e 1959, período que abarca a vida de “Nha Bijagó”  (...)

(...) Com esta publicação, António Júlio Estácio, revela-nos mais uma vez, o seu grande apego e dedicação às coisas e às gentes da terra que o viu nascer. (...)

Nha Bijagó (1871-1959)
Leopoldina Ferreira Pontes, "Nha Bijagó"  (Bissau, 1871 - Bissau, 1959) e a cronologia da cidade de Bissau

Aproveitando a vasta e valiosa pesquisa historiográfica do António Estácio, uma homem de várias pátrias (Guiné-Bissau, Portugal, Angola, Mavau...= vamos aqui recolher e sintetizar algumas datas marcantes do desenvolvimento urbano de Bissau, correspondente ao período em que viveu a "Nha Bijagó"(com a devida vénia ao autor...)


(i) Leopoldina Ferreira (Pontes, pelo primeiro casamento...) nasceu em Bissau em 4 de novembro de 1871. Era filha ("ilegítima", segundo a terminologia do Código Civil em vigor na época, o de 1866) de João Ferreira Crato (natural do Crato, Alto Alentejo, comerciante na Guiné) . Morreu aos 87 anos, em 26 de Maio de 1959. O nominho "Nha Bijagó" deve tê-lo recebido da mãe, Gertrudes da Cruz (de etnia bijagó, natural de Bissau).
(ii) Pouco antes de ela nascer, em 1871, o 18º Presidente dos Estados Unidos da América, Ulysses Simpson Grant , proferiu a sentença referente à posse da ilha de Bolama, pertencente ao, então, distrito da Guiné, favorável a Portugal o que pôs termo ao conflito se arrastava com os ingleses.

(iii) Nessa altura Bissau era uma povoação encravada entre a fortaleza de S. José e um muro, com 4 metros de altura. A igreja e o cemitério ficavam no interior da Amura. De entre as poucas ruas e ruelas, extra-muros, a Rua de S. José era considerada como a artéria mais importante. Ia do portão da Amura, que estava aberto das 8 às 21h00, ao baluarte da Bandeira. Após 5 de outubro de 1910, passou a Rua do Advento da República; depois, a Rua Dr. Oliveira Salazar e, após a independência e a 21 janeiro  de 1975 a Rua Guerra Mendes.

(iv) Em 1872, tinha ela cerca de um ano "quando as ruas de Bissau começaram a ser iluminadas a petróleo. Eram, todavia, poucos os candeeiros"...

(v) A 1877, foi criado o Concelho de Bissau, sendo de 573 habitantes a população na área murada, composta por 391 nativos, 166 oriundos de Cabo Verde e, apenas, 16 europeus.

(vi) Em 1879, ainda a "Nha Bijagó" não tinha completado os oito anos, foi “a sede do Governo transferida para Bolama.” 

(vii) No dia 3 de agosto do mesmo ano, assinou-se o tratado de cessão a Portugal do território de Jufunco, ocupado pelos Felupes.

(viii) Pouco antes de Leopoldina completar os 12 anos de idade, foi publicado o decreto que dividiu a província da Guiné  em quatro circunscriçõess, criando-se assim os concelhos de Bolama, Bissau, Cacheu e Bolola. 

(ix) Tinha ela 14 anos quando Portugal e a França celebraram [, em Paris, em 1886,] a convenção referente à delimitação das possessões dos 2 países na África Ocidental e que correspondem às atuais Repúblicas do Senegal, Guiné-Conacri e Guiné-Bissau.
.
(x) As más condições climatéricas, agravadas pela insalubridade da região, dizimavam a população de tal modo que, em 1886, Bissau era o menos povoado de todos os aglomerados urbanos da Guiné.

(xi) Tinha “Nha Bijagó” já 18 anos quando foi, então, lançada, em 1889,  a primeira pedra para a tão almejada ponte-cais,( Foi designada  por ponte Correia e Lança, em homenagem a Joaquim da Graça Correia Lança  Governador da Guiné., de 1888 a 1890,)

(xii) Ano e meio depois, o chefe dos Serviços de Saúde defendia que a capital deveria regressar à ilha de Bissau, ainda que para local ligeiramente diferente, isto é, puxando-a para a zona de Bandim que se situava “em terreno suficientemente elevado e com vertentes para a praia arenosa.”, o que, em termos de drenagem e salubridade, era, indubitavelmente, vantajoso.

(xiii) À beira de completar 22 anos, registaram-se, no interior da fortaleza, dois incidentes graves, em 1893: o incênndio da da enfermaria militar e uma explosão;

(xiv) A 7/12/1893, a vila sofreu um grande cerco, movido por elementos da etnia Papel a que se juntaram os Balantas de Nhacra.

(xv) Em 1984, é demolida uma  parte do muro de 4 m. de altura que ia do Fortim Nozolini ao Baluarte da Balança, com o objetivo de se construir uma igreja católica.

(xvii) Por volta dos seus 25 anos, dada a elevada densidade populacional intramuros, o governador Pedro Inácio Gouveia autorizou “o aforamento de, terrenos no olhéu do Rei”m tendo, em 1900, ali, chegado a ser instalado um lazareto.

(xviii) A implantação da República em Portugal levou à mudança do Governador e, em 1912/13, o primeiro-tenente Carlos de Almeida Pereira manda demolir o muro que constrangia a expansão urbana.

(xix) Com a República há mudanças na toponímia:

Rua de S. José > Rua do Advento da República
Rua do Baluarte da Bandeira > Rua Almirante Reis
Travessa Larga > Travessa do Dr. Bombarda
Travessa da Botica > Travessa 5 d’ Outubro
Travessa da Ferraria > Travessa Honório Barreto

(xx) Depois da "campanha de pacificação" do cap João Teixeira Pinto (1913/15),  Bissau é finalmente  objeto dum plano de urbanização que lhe permitiu crescer de forma disciplinada e segundo malha ortogonal bem definida. A autoria do plano é do tenente-coronel engenheiro José Guedes Viegas Quinhones de Matos Cabral que, no início da década de vinte, foi director das Obras Públicas na Guiné.

(xxi) Para além do Mercado Municipal e do Cemitério, por detrás do Hospital, etc., procedeu-se ao aterro e à regularização do molhe da rua marginal {, Rua Agostinho Coelho, numa evocação do primeiro governador da Guiné],  e à construção do edifício-sede da Alfândega.

(xxii) Ao completar 62 anos, teve lugar, em 1933, a transferência da sede da comarca judicial da Guiné, que passou de Bolama para Bissau.

(xxiii) Em 1934, procedeu-se ao lançamento da primeira pedra para a construção do monumento ao Esforço da Raça, da autoria do Arq Ponce de Castro. (. As pedras foram enviadas do Porto e o monumento foi inaugurado em 1941; o único monumento colonial que resistiu ao camartelo revolucionário.)

Fortaleza da Amura. Foto de Manuel Coelho (c. 1966/68)
(xxiv) Em 1936, a Associação Comercial e Industrial da Guiné cedeu ao Estado o terreno que lhe fora concedido, o qual se destinava à sua sede e ficava em frente ao  edifício do Banco Nacional Ultramarino, para no local se construir um grande edifício onde, a par do Tribunal, foram instalados os Serviços de Administração Civil, assim como os Serviços de Fazenda;

(xxv) Em 1939 foi a Fortaleza de S. José, vulgo Amura, classificada como Monumento Nacional.

(xxvi) Em finais da década de 30 foi celebrado o contrato para a realização dos estudos de abastecimento de água, melhoramento que só se viria a concretizar  na segunda metade da década  de 40.

(xxvii) Transferência da capital de Bolama para Bissau,  em 19 de Dezembro de 1941. Em 1945 tomna posse o novo governador, Sarmeno Rodrigues. (***)

 (xxviii) Em meados dos anos 40 efectua-se um novo projecto de urbanização, mudam de nome  as vilas de Canchungo (Teixeira Pinto) e Gabú (Nova Lamego), procede-se à construção do depósito de água no Alto de Intim, assim como do Palácio do Governador; constroem-se moradias no “Bairro Portugal” e surge o Bairro de Santa Luzia; Deu-se início à edificação da Catedral, do Museu e Biblioteca, etc.

(xxix) Procedeu-se à colocação de estátuas como a do navegador Nuno Tristão, a de Teixeira Pinto, a do grande guineense Honório Pereira Barreto, etc.

(xxx) A Rua Honório Barreto foi, na Guiné, a primeira a ser asfaltada e reabriu em 6/4/1953.

(xxxi)  De tudo isto e a muito mais “Nha Bijagó” foi contemporânea, como da conclusão da nova ponte cais, inaugurada em 18/5/1953 pelo Subsecretário de Estado Raul Ventura, à construção do aeroporto em Brá e à sua transferência para Bissalanca; à visita do Presidente da República Craveiro Lopes; à inauguração do edifício situado na, então, Praça do Império, onde ficou a sede da Associação Comercial e Industrial da Guiné, etc. (****)

Está sepultado no cemitério de Bissau..

1. Houve um "tsunami" que varreu as artérias de Bissau, pelo menos a Bissau "colonial", mudando as tabuletas das ruas, praças e avenidas da cidade dos "tugas"... A toponímia do tempo da República (Rua Almirante Reis, por ex.,) e do Estado Novo (Rua Oliveira Salazar, por ex.)  foi mudada por outra mais consentâneas com os "ventos da História": as datas marcantes da luta pela independência (3 de agosto de 1959, 24 de setembro...) e os seus heróis (Amílcar Cabral, Domingos Ramos, Pansau Na Isna, Osvaldo Vieira...)  substituiram a tralha "colonialista"... 

Acontece em todos os os tempos e lugares, sempre que há uma "revolução", uma "mudança de regime", ou os novos "senhores da guerra" substituem os outros... É um filme que alguns de nós, por já terem vivido uns aninhos, assistiram: mudam-se as placas das ruas, dos estádios, das pontes, dos aeroportos, das igrejas, apeam-as estátuas,  reconvertem-se os edifícios, etc. O ser humano é um animal iconoclasta.

 Em Bissau esse "tsunsami" toponímico terá ocorrido em 20 de janeiro de 1975, ao tempo do presidente Luís Cabral, segundo informação do António Estácio...  A "comissão de toponímca" ainda ficou com algumas ruas "devolutas", a que deu uma numeração (1, 2, 3, 4, 5...), à espera de novos "heróis"...

Estas coisas aprendi com a leitura do livro do nosso camarada António Estácio, que tem costela transmontana, mas que nasceu no "chão de papel", em Bissau, tendo também vivido em Bolama, onde a mãe foi professora, se não me engano. O livro a que me refiro é "Nha Bijagó: respeitada personalidade da sociedade guineense (1871-1959)" (edição de autor, 2011, 159 pp., il.).

Sem ser um trabalho sistemático, aqui ficam algumas achegas para se compreender as mudanças de toponímica de Bissau, e em especial de Bissau Velho:

Legenda (mapa acima):

3A - Av 3 de Agosto (antiga Av Marginal ou R Agostinho Coelho, 1º governador da Guiné  [, referência ao 3 de Agosto de 1959, o "massacre do Pdjiguiti"]
19S - R 19 de Setembro (antiga
AC - Av Amílcar Cabral (antiga Av da República)
AM - R António Nbana (antiga R Tomás Ribeiro)
GM - R Guerra Mendes (antiga R Oliveira Salazar, e antes R Advento da República)

1 > Rua 1 - Antiga Rua Almirante Reis

2 > Rua 2 - Antiga Rua General Bastos

3 > Rua 3 - Antiga Rua Nozoliny [José Caetano Nozolini figura proeminente, oriunda de Cabo Verde com fortes ligações e interesses locais, o maior negociante do seu tempo, responsável pela a construção, que levou 3 anos (1843/46), do Fortim Nozolini, no local do Pidjiguiti: dele partia um muro, de 4 metros de altura, que se ligava até ao baluarte da Balança, protegendo a preciosa fonte de água potável do Pidjiguiti].

4 > Rua 4 - Antiga Rua Governador Polaco [Alois da Rolla Dziezaski, de origem polaca; no período em que a Guiné foi distrito de Cabo Verde, exerceu funções governativas por três vezes, sendo duas como interino e, em 1851, uma outra como provisório]

Outras artérias cujos nomes foram mudados em 1975:

Av Pansau Na Isna - Antiga Av Américo Tomás (e antes R Mousinho de Albuquerque)
Largo das F.A.R.P. > Antiga Praça Diogo Cão

Haja alguém que arrange um croqui da parte ocidental da Bissau Velho, ou Bissau Colonial... Não se esqueçam que este traçado, feito a a régua e esquadro,é do tempo da I República, ou da República, já que só houve uma... Somos masoquistas, gostamos de dar tiro nos pés, mas temos de reconhecer que, para a época, era uma inovação em termos de planeamento urbanístico...Pena que a Bissau Velha esteja a cair de podre, desde 1975, sem a gente lhe poder valer, sem a UNESCO a classificar... 

Ao menos que a Câmara Municipal de Bissau tenha um rasgo de génio e "proteja" do camartelo aqueles edifícios, aquelas ruas, que tinham a sua graça, o sue encanto, a sua beleza, e até algum interesse arquitetónico (, as casas de "sobrado", a Amura, etc.)... De qualquer modo, as cidades e os países e o seu património são muito vulneráveis ao "desvario" da economia e aos "humores" dos governos.

A Guiné-Bissau precisa de "recuperar" a sua memória... E os "tugas" que por lá passaram também.  Parte dessa "memória, material e imaterial" também nos pertcnce... É património comum da humanidade... Todos os povos deixam deixam maiores ou menores marcas ou vestígios da sua passagem pelos sítios que ocuparam, dominaram, colonizaram... Como os romanos, os visigodos, os suevos, os árabes e os bérberes, etc., que cá estiveram muitos séculos, neste pequeno rectângulo que se chama Portugal,  há mil anos... Os guineenses têm que ter orgulho no seu país como nós temos no nosso... A Guiné-Bissau é feita de muitas "camadas", ou "sedimentos", como todos os outros países...

Por outro lado, as comissões de toponímica precisam de fazer um trabalho pedagógico: no caso de Bissau, é preciso que os jovens de hoje sabem quem froam os "combatentes da libedade da pátria" que já morreram, quase todos em combate como o António Nbana (1968) ou o Domingos Ramos (1966) ou Pansau na Isna (1970).

Key messages

Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills. It helps children to be self-sufficient, to be heard, and to have more influence on issues that affect them. It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.

Education in emergencies actions can help prevent, reduce, mitigate and respond to emergency-related academic, financial, social, institutional, physical and infrastructural barriers to children's education, while ensuring the provision of safe, inclusive and quality education.

In 2017, the EU dedicates 6% of its annual humanitarian aid budget to education in emergencies, one of the most underfunded sectors of humanitarian aid. In 2018, this amount will increase to 8%.

4.7 million girls and boys in 52 countries have benefited from EUfunded education in emergencies actions between 2012 and 2017.

GB’s Alex Walmsley: ‘There’s a point you know you’re done, but I wasn’t’

 Cache   
St Helens prop has recovered from serious injury and must now help Great Britain bounce back against New Zealand

Back-to-back defeats to start their tour of the southern hemisphere means there is a certain sense of adversity surrounding Great Britain at present: but this is nothing new for Alex Walmsley. Having targeted four wins from four against Tonga, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, two consecutive losses so far is certainly not ideal, but for Walmsley, just being on the trip alone is an achievement given what he has been through in his career.

Walmsley has taken the unconventional route to the top, going from local playing fields to Great Britain international in just a handful of years, having played amateur rugby until the age of 22. But even after earning his big break with St Helens, Walmsley has had numerous hurdles to overcome to reach this point: including a serious neck injury last year which put his entire career in jeopardy.

Comment on Hamas top dog Leader threatens to rain rockets on Tel Aviv ‘for 6 months’ by Michelle

 Cache   
Both of your "references" are revisionist rubbish which is appropriate after what I deemed your post. Any and everyone associated with the "bomb" was made to feel guilty BY the constant pressure of the western Left. Yet it was ONLY nukes that stopped WW3 from starting in 1948. I quite believe that many of those out of range of the fire and not actually there could make such idiotic, virtue signalling comments (to dodge the potential flak)as even then it was common. But to actually believe it? Come on surely you must know something about high command, politicians and politics as no one wants to be seen as holding the hot potato that the nukes were sure to become. As soon as they were used the USA was made to feel guilty. I say RUBBISH! Stalin killed more than 14x as many in one year. Hitler in the month it took to cleanse the gypsy camp. No one in the Left says anything about Stalin or Turkey or islam. Why do you totaly ignore the massive Leftist campaign that started IMMEDIATELY post Nagasaki to make nukes and their use(but ONLY by the west..the USSR killed thousands of its own troops to see what radiation did) seem dreadful when the USSR was at the same time well underway in its own Manhattan? It seems that every man and his dog involved has published a mea culpa with the notorious exeption of the traitors there. Notice the pattern ? They were MADE to feel guilty by such as you. Iran WILL use nukes once it has them or do you disagree. Answer please? I also advise you to actually go and check some facts published at the time instead of using 3rd hand leftist sources. I do love how you used the old Leftist trick of "wartime propaganda" as the basis to deny harsh military realities of the time.Nothing you have posted has made me think that you know ANYTHING about the subject and no quick google/bing search will help you here as it requires extensive reading of NON revisionist texts and conversations with those involved Japan was essentially strategically defeated but had NO intention of stopping the war. They would ahve been happy to allow 20 million to starve to death to continue it. You have NO idea.It was not a football match where you all troop off at the end friends again with the score 0-0. Japan had a lot to answer for and was still attacking ships and army remnants were still fighting all over the Pacific. The number of allied lives saved I quoted IGNORED the cost in allied lives that it woud cost to take back Malaya, the East Indies, the remnants in new Guinea and hundreds of other places and thailand , let alone china. That could have pushed the casualty bill another 100 -300,000. The surrender of Bougainville and Rabaul astonished allied intelligence officers in how little they actually knew of the numbers of troops and the quality of the defenses there. All ignored by leftist fools. You always write such leftist garbage with nary a clue about the reality of the situation at the time. A clue question: in the middle of a harsh and difficult firefight with bullets zipping past you constantly an enemy soldier puts his hands up as he has run out of ammunition. What do you do? Answer please! WRT your last point: I did not say that you did...that was what I said and it was a statement of fact not opinion.
