Is it worth learning Thai anymore?

 Cache   
I'm not on about the basic level of ability, I believe that a basic understanding such as how to ask for food, directions, the numbers, money and simple stuff like "what do you like or can you do ??" are essential and polite given that we are a guest in their Country, but I'm on about the more the advanced level of Thai like future tenses, holding a conversation for more than a couple of minutes, stuff about the weather and how to install a proximity sensor to the hoist bearing on a ZPMC Post Panamax crane. English ability among the girls is definitely and very clearly improving to a point where all or many staff in Beer bars and GGB's have a good grasp. GG girls are even polishing up on their Hindi and Korean. Google is of course a blessing, I had a conversation using google translate with a Korean girl lost up at Terminal 21 last trip. I now know what "fuck off " is in Korean at least. Given that there are now hand held translation devices, akin to something you might see on Star Trek, and the tech is becoming even more advanced as time goes on, how long will it be before we can have a "Babel fish" like implant to do it all for us I wonder. Back to the current situation, as I said, a basic and polite understanding and ability is good to have, but as girls are beginning to learn more and at an earlier age, tech is making life easier for both parties and English is now (as far as I know) being taught in Primary schools in Thailand, is it really worth dusting Benjawan Poomsan Beckers book off anymore and playing the tapes?.

The Laundromat, 2019 - ★★★½

 Cache   

there's one very good Soderbergh movie here, a procedural investigative thriller a la CONTAGION full of heartbreaking character turns (Streep, Cromwell, Schwimmer, Patrick, et al) that unravels a conspiracy step-by-step and deftly blows the lid off the Panama Papers by jumping around multiple narrative threads

then there's another wackier Soderbergh movie here, this tonally confused, thematically grating picture where Gary Oldman adopts an obnoxious cartoon accent, Meryl Streep dons brownface, and characters break the fourth wall to condescendingly explain economic policy to the viewer, falling somewhere between the sideways satire of SCHIZOPOLIS and the shambolic structureless flow of FULL FRONTAL

when 21-time Oscar nominee/millionaire Streep ripped off her wig + fake ass & dropped her racist accent to strike a pompous Statue of Liberty pose for the final shot of the movie, i maybe was supposed to clap, but all i could think about was how the ruling class can clearly never be trusted to hold itself accountable for anything. this is all just pretend for them, they will always control the narrative. the scene played less like a call-to-arms than an accidentally ironic condemnation of its own do-gooder rich liberalism. great point, even if coincidental.


          

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

 Cache   

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

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

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

Venkatesh Rao on Waldenponding

 Cache   

walden-pond.jpg
Writer and management consultant Venkatesh Rao talks about Waldenponding with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Rao coined the term Waldenponding to describe various levels of retreating from technology akin to how Thoreau extolled the virtues of retreating from social contact and leading a quieter life at Walden Pond. Rao argues that the value of Waldenponding is overrated and that extreme Waldenponding is even somewhat immoral. Rao sees online intellectual life as a form of supercomputer, an intellectual ecosystem that produces new knowledge and intellectual discourse. He encourages all of us to contribute to that intellectual ecosystem even when it can mean losing credit for some of our ideas and potentially some of our uniqueness.

Intro. [Recording date: September 13, 2019.]

Russ Roberts: Today is September, 13 2019 and my guest is writer and management consultant, Venkatesh Rao, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Ribbonfarm. Our topic for today is a piece from his newsletter about the seductive nature of our devices and social media and it is called "Against Waldenponding." "Against Waldenponding." Venkat, welcome to EconTalk.

Venkatesh Rao: Great to be here, Russ. Thanks for having me on.

Russ Roberts: So what do you mean by Waldenponding? Which is a phrase--I don't think it's going to catch on, but I loved it.

Venkatesh Rao: I don't know about that. I think it's already caught on, at least in my circles. I did a little Twitter poll and one-third of the people in my feed had heard of it from me, but a bunch of people had heard it not from me. So that's a good measure of inception[?] and the zeitgeist. But yeah, it started, like most things do with me these days--I don't know--a gentle insult to troll some of my friends in tech who I think act a little too, I don't know, solemn, [?self-?] serious about the threat of digital devices hacking our brains. So it started out as an insult. Then I did a little Twitter thread on it and realized I meant it more seriously than I was admitting to myself. Then it turned into a newsletter. Then I did another for part two. And since then I've been sort of exploring the concept all over the place in Twitter and other places.

So the basic idea is: You've got this trend of people advocating some sort of retreat from digital media, and of course Waldenponding is a reference to Thoreau's Walden. So, the idea of not necessarily literally retreating to a log cabin in the woods to meditate--though a lot of people actually do some literal version of that--but somewhere on the spectrum of being very online to being completely offline by Waldenpond, any measure of retreat along that axis is what I call Waldenponding. And the pieces I have been sort of developing as sort of a critical pieces advocating against that. There, I argue that Waldenponding is actually a bad thing and it's sort of a misframing of a problem. It's the wrong response to the, whatever is going on there; and there's more effective ways of engaging with digital technology.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. I want to read an excerpt from your, I'm going to call it an essay. It's a set of bullet points really. A numbered set of points that tie together. But you say "The crude caricature"--you're talking about Waldenponding:

The crude caricature is "smash your smart phone and go live in a log cabin to reclaim your attention and your life from being hacked by evil social media platforms." It is less of a caricature than you might think. At an event I was just at, the opening keynote featured a guy who's literally done just that, and I know at least half a dozen people who have executed a Hard Waldenponding plan with varying degrees of literal fidelity. A great many more have implemented a sort of Soft Waldenponding, marked by digital retreat (aided by various amputation tools that sever or loosen your connection to digital prosthetics), but no log cabin.

So you're not literally against stepping back from some technology sometimes, we should get that straight right from the beginning.

Venkatesh Rao: Yeah, absolutely. So it's almost a critique of what you might say has become a religious doctrine around what's really just a practical matter of, on the one hand engineering design evolution on the part of tech companies, and on the part of users just getting used to a new medium and sort of swinging back and forth on the pendulum a few times before finding sort of a happy medium. And I go back to the history of technologies, and it happens with boring predictability: that you have radio and you have a generation complaining that radio is ruining our brains. You have TV, people complaining that TV is ruining our brains. You have video games, you have same complaints, right?

And it goes back to Plato and Phaedrus and him talking about writing, having the same problem of: you are atrophying your memory by using this weird new medium called writing to preserve your thoughts. So the complaint pattern is not new. Neither is this sort of advocacy of retreat. And it's not that the, those who advocate the retreat are unaware of this long history. So Nick Carr, who I think inaugurated this particular trend of when he wrote The Shallows almost a decade ago, he actually quotes Plato and Phaedrus and says, "All right, still this time it's different. Google is making us stupid." So they're aware of the tradition, but somehow they think it's different this time, which is sort of a common pattern in these things.

So, I would say when you approach this as a practical matter, not as a religious one, it's actually not that hard. It's--there are features available. You can put your phone into dark mode. You can build habits around other information consumption. The diagram I included in my thread has a little turnpike-type visualization of, on the one hand you have the X axis of increasing latency of information consumption. And on the Y axis you have the abstraction with which you consume information. So, you might have something like a book that's written several years after something important has happened. So it's several years lagging. But because it's able to go deep and analyze at higher levels of abstraction, it goes up on the Y axis as well. So that's one extreme.

And on the other extreme, you have a real life sense of what's going on on Twitter today and life sense of sophisticated conversations happening. So it's not all shared posting. So if you're able to go up and down the turnpike to suit your needs, you will sort of meet your informational needs. And I think what ends up happening when these people react against people doing just that, making their own decisions on where to be along that axis and how much attention to allocate on each part, they make the mistake of--I think they make three mistakes. The first is they overestimate their own agency as designers of the mechanisms. So you have, for example, Tristan Harris and Nir Eyal--I don't know how to say his name--but both began their careers as actual designers of web technology--

Russ Roberts: Yeah, that's, by the way, that's Nir Eyal. And he's coming to EconTalk in a couple months. Carry on.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. You should ask him about this stuff. And I think both are great people, very thoughtful people. They've seen the design side of this stuff. They've actually worked on hacking attention-type technologies with tech companies. And then they've kind of had almost like a finding-religion moment where they've gone to the other side and sort of in their mind recognized sort of the dark side of this technology. And, they're now in this sort of evangelical mode where some of it almost sounds like an AA [Alcoholics Anonymouse] program where it's like you have to admit you're powerless and the godlike technology has hacked your attention and you have to admit that there's a higher power and you're powerless. I get a very AA vibe from it.

And I think so that's one mistake they make. Just because they've been involved in the design of this sort of attention-manipulation technologies, they overestimate the actual importance of that element of the puzzle.

The second thing they do is they underestimate the actual level of agency we, as users, bring to our information consumption choices. And I don't think that they actually stop to think too hard about the, what I think is the null hypothesis here, which is that if I'm spending say 50% of my time shit-posting on Twitter, 30% writing random little threads on newsletters and only say, 5%, working on "big, serious, solemn" papers and books, that's actually an attention allocation I might want. If I'm watching five hours of TV a day, that's an attention allocation I might want. So I think they underestimate the degree to which there is actually conscious agency here and they attribute too much to the evil UI [User Interface] designers.

And the third thing that I think is part of their big mistake is: they don't realize the extent to which the behaviors we are now experimenting with across the board are actually a response to a much bigger thing. Namely, the information environment has in fact radically shifted. So it's not just a matter of like, you know, clever UI designers are designing infinite scrolling, patterns with sub-microsecond insertions into the attention loop. It is actually, genuinely the case that several orders of magnitude more information has come online, and our old ways of processing information that were sort of evolved in scarcity environments, they just don't work anymore. So everything we are trying, from being like, you know, gonzo present in live Twitter feeds all the way to the other end where you retreat to a log cabin and only read ancient Greek classics--this entire spectrum of experimentation represents very useful and important evolutionary adaptations experiments. And you kind of have to let these things run and figure out what works.

10:33

Russ Roberts: So, a part of that--let me try to summarize that in some of the ways we've been talking about these topics here recently on EconTalk. So, one issue is this addictive question; and you're suggesting that some of that is overrated in terms of how addictive they can make it. And the second is, we have some control over it obviously. I think the question on that is, is whether we get control of it by taking it off our smartphone--a particular app that we have trouble not going to all the time--versus, say, regulating these companies. And listeners know I'm a big fan of letting cultural response to this happen. And you're making the, I think very relevant, point that this is such an early change, the idea that we're going to just stay as we are in how we interact with this technology is absurd. We're going to change in all kinds of ways and we need some time to do that. I think that's very wise.

The deeper point, of course, also you make is that people enjoy these things. We like these things. It's fun. It's not addiction: that's just a word to vilify it and it's a puritanical concept to make it sound wicked or evil.

The third point, which I would also react to, about longer, deeper dives in deeper ideas: The question is whether that seems to have gotten harder. I know for me, I'm 64 and maybe I'm just getting older, but my ability to sit with a text without interrupting it, with email checking, Twitter checking and other types of distraction seems to have changed. Now, that could be because I haven't reacted correctly or fully to this new information stream. It could be, though, that there is something here to be concerned about. The question is what should we do about that concern?

And I think there's a final point I want to add onto that you make I think is the real, in many ways the punchline: We have this cornucopia, this incredible perfusion of stimulus. Some of it is very superficial and just a little dopamine hit of 'I got another follower.' Some of it as superficial as you point out, because it's gossip about somebody's habits online. They're up there with some shortcoming that people want to wave around. That feels a lot like a waste of time. But, if we're careful, that's not the way we spend most of our time on Twitter. It's not the way we spend most of our time on social media. It's not the way we spend most of our time online. There's such extraordinary riches up and down the line of depth versus superficial, which is one of the ways of thinking of the axis that you're describing.

And it's a glorious time to be alive. You know, I think moaning and complaining about how horrible it is, it's a form of virtue signaling, obviously. It's part of--you allude to that in various point, times in your essay. But I think the right way to think about this is: As individuals, let's make a choice. Here we have this unbelievable menu. Yes, there's some really fattening, unhealthy things down at this part of the buffet. But this other part of the buffett--and some of that's, it's fun. You can have an ice cream cone now and then. You don't want to eat it all day, but the rest of the time, you've got this extraordinary profusion of ideas and opportunities to learn and explore. And just the question is: How do we navigate that?

Venkatesh Rao: So I want to react to a couple of things you said because, the way you framed your response to the trends so far is almost--it's an apologist's mode of--it overemphasizes actually the very criticisms that drive Waldenponding, which I think are actually wrong. So if you actually look at the things they're recommending--so, take for example, academic papers or academic books and I come from the academic world, same as you. I spent several years in my Ph.D. and postdoc research diving into archival journals, technical textbooks. And my background is in mechanical and aerospace engineering. And it might not be as bad as say, social psychology, but honestly, 90% of all papers and technical materials I read was junk. And I hated it.

And my own papers--I'm not going to spend my career as anything great. But I think I was an okay researcher. I got maybe a few citations for the few papers I wrote while I was in academic research. But when I moved over to the blogosphere, it's so much a richer environment, and the conversation gets smarter and better so much faster. So, my best blog posts, they've gotten thousands and thousands of reactions and wonderful conversations have come out that. Things that never happened with my academic work, which kind of languish in obscurity. And most academic work, by the way, deserves to languish in obscurity. You'll see this comment a lot in sort of hard line, 'Twitter is good'-people, which I include myself in. Where you'd say things like, 'That book should be a blog post at best and the heated blog post should just be a Twitter thread.'

And this assessment that we are all coming to in my corner of the discourse is because we're starting to see that the appearance and formal structure of depth does not equal actual depth. So the, what I think of as the traditional literary industrial complex of academia, TED talks, very high gravitas, newspaper op-eds and stuff, it has the form and structure of depth. You look at it and you think, 'Hey, this should be good, deep stuff.' But it's not. I mean, you look at the New York Times op-ed section--it's like warmed over, recycled one-week-late clickbaiting that's actually picking up where Twitter leaves off. And the original conversation on Twitter ends up being, like higher signal, lower noise, more interesting and more current than the NewYork op-ed version of it. You look at half the books that come out--they're the same.

So I want to sort of point that out that so this is not a both sides-ist argument. This is actually a comment on humanity. Humans come in grades of, like, sophistication, shallowness, superficiality of interests, depth of interests. And you will find people in every medium who are going deep and doing, like, profoundly interesting things, exploring information spaces. And you will find 90% of people using whatever form the medium offers to produce honestly, bullshit.

17:33

Russ Roberts: Yeah, well--Venkat, I just want to react to that for a sec because I think you're onto something there. The part that--I know you're critiquing my critique a little bit--but, the part I want to really agree with is that a lot of this worry about social media is a form of condescension. It's basically, 'Well, I know how to handle it, of course. I'm sophisticated. I'm deep. I'm thoughtful. It's them, the masses, the rest of the folks. They need help. They need to be controlled because they can't control themselves.' There is a definite paternalism there that I do not like; and I want to make it clear that I don't embrace that.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. There's several dimensions to this. So there's, the one I was going after is almost like foreign structure conflation in understanding media. You're pointing out the sort of elite-versus-commoner relationship of condescension and sort of.

Actually, riffing a little bit more on that, that's been a sort of ongoing theme for about 20 years in conversations about digital media. Right? I mean, you had Surowiecki with his Wisdom of Crowds book. I think that was 2002. So we've been having this conversation for at least a couple of decades, and we now know a lot more. I mean, this is an economics podcast and to a large extent what we're talking about really is in some sense, efficiency and intelligence of information markets. Right? And, 'wisdom of crowds' is a thing. There are times when crowds can act stupid and insane where they uncritically just repeat each other.

But there's other times when crowds are actually constituted of individuals who bring a lot of private knowledge and they're kind of adding a lot of intelligence, and mechanisms sort of coordinate and wire that information together. And a larger emergent intelligence appears.

And we are very familiar with one mechanism by which this happens, namely the economic markets, which is the focus of your world. But I think we are just seeing the emergence of an entirely different mechanism that works on the same principles. And I've written quite a bit about this as well, both in the original thread and in subsequent tweets and newsletters. But I think of this as what I call the graph mind. You can call it the high brain. I also think of it as the global social computer in the cloud.

But, the idea is that this is an extraordinarily powerful computing and intelligence-extracting mechanism that functions something like a market. It's a big distributed computer. But to participate in it, you have to be willing to let your individuality be subsumed in the larger conversation.

So, when you're on Twitter and bantering back and forth with a bunch of other smart people, what you say and what you do and the memes and the clever coinages you come up with--that matters. But who you are doesn't. So this is why one of my metrics of success for myself as a blogger and very online person is, there's nothing better than seeing a meme that you helped create, sort of propagate through the wilderness of social media and nobody knows where it came from. I'm often like really pleased when that happens.

And I've done that a few times. Like one of the coinages I have been credited with is the phrase 'premium mediocre,' which comes from an article I wrote called "The Premium Mediocre Life of Maya Millennial." That blog was a viral hit; a lot of people appreciated it. But what I loved even more was: as that idea percolated through the zeitgeist, through the global social computer in the cloud, and I do Twitter searches, a lot of people are now starting to use it in roughly the way I intended in coining it, and have no idea where it came from. And it's lovely. It's like I have added a small, I don't know, a vitamin pill of intelligence to the discourse, and it's hopefully making the competition and processing of information a little bit more efficient. So, my reaction to this is both surprise and delight at being able to do this.

But for a lot of people, the reaction when this happens is utter dismay. They feel they've been appropriated; they feel their best thinking has been diluted and leaked out into the wilderness rather than captured and monetized.

And I think that comes from the sense of what I've been calling 'fear of being ordinary.' So you've got 'fear of missing out,' which is a syndrome we sometimes think of people like myself having, which is we're online all the time and are afraid we'll miss some exciting new thing that happens. But fear of being ordinary is when you let yourself be that online sort of gonzo present in social media, you kind of lose your individuality and you become just part of this computational soup. And great things come out of the computational soup, but chances are you're not going to get what you think of is the appropriate level of credit for that. So Waldenponding in one sense is a retreat to reclaim your individuality.

So, I have been playing around with metaphors like: you're doing an attention stock buyback and shrinking sort of your presence even at the expense of doing less in the world; You claim more credits for what you do in fact do. So there's a fear of being ordinary. You want to live in a domain where you can claim authorial credit--authorship for the ideas you come up with. You want to be a legible part of a tradition you want to associate yourself with. Like, I looked up your work and you're--what is it?--a fourth generation Chicago school economist, right? And that's a well known legible tradition. You can draw genealogy of generations of economists who worked on a set of ideas and you can trace the descent of ideas.

So that's one kind of idea space where you can kind of trace the provenance of ideas. And that's great. And it's a kind of idea space we are very comfortable being in. It has a calculus of merit and credit and appreciation and advancement and rewards. But on the other hand, you have this great new thing coming up. It can compute answers to questions that are much more complex and subtle than we could ever compute with either the academic tradition or the market tradition or the journalistic tradition. And we have to get used to working in that mode. So my reaction to this is delight; but for a lot of people it's fear of being ordinary, fear of sort of having their individuality lost, even if the output is extraordinarily enlightened insights.

24:11

Russ Roberts: Yeah. So, I'll just add a couple things to that. I think that's a very deep thought actually. And I liked--you talked about the essay FOMO and FOBO--Fear of Missing Out and Fear of Being Ordinary. And my first thought was, when I read that was, 'Well, I'm not really afraid of being ordinary. I have my followers on Twitter. They see what I write. My name's attached to it.'

But you're making a deeper point. I want to try to, let me try to expand on it a little bit. So, somebody gave me your name or I saw a reference to something you wrote on Ribbonfarm, maybe two years ago. And I looked at it, and I thought, 'You know, I'm not sure that's going to make a good EconTalk, but I wish it did. It's interesting, but I'm going to leave it alone.' I put it down and I forgot about you. And then, somewhere along the line, somehow--I don't know how--this Waldenponding piece got referenced to me.

I didn't see you in the hall and say, 'What have you written lately?' and you said, 'Oh, You'll like this.' Somehow, and my wife always says, 'How'd you find out about X?' I always say, 'How do I know?' I don't know how to answer that. Twitter, email, suggestions. I get emails from listeners. So, let's pretend somebody actually sent this to me. It's possible. I've forgotten. I haven't keep track of it. So it's a nice idea to say, 'My guest today is Venkatesh Rao and I want to thank so-and-so for suggesting it.' I've forgotten that.

Worse, I have a quote in my Adam Smith book that starts off 'The universe is full of dots.' And I'm not going to quote it verbatim here, but gist of the quote is: the secret is not what you can do by connecting the dots. The real question is why did you leave out all the other dots you could have included? It's a deep and beautiful way to talk about cherry picking. And people think I said that, because it's in my book; it gets quoted on Twitter all the time. I didn't say it. Sam Thomsen, who I don't know; but I like to point it out. Because it's such a wonderful quote, I like to give him credit.

But as you're pointing out now, you can argue that it's really not important who gets the credit. Now, our egos want the credit. And you could argue as an economist--I'm not going to--that by giving credit, we encourage people to look for more ideas. I think that's kind of silly. I don't think that's why we're generating ideas and clever thoughts. Some of it it's ego. Some of it it's just the part of being human and the delight we get in wordplay.

So Waldenponding--I don't think you sat around saying, 'This is going to make me more money. I'm going to get to be on more media and I'm going to be able to charge more when I speak.' You just enjoyed the phrase. You thought of it. It was a moment of eureka.

But the other point I want to make--and I think this, to come back to your, this idea of the fear of being ordinary--I think there's a tribalism and an identity issue here. So, I'm much less of a Chicago economist than I was when I came out of graduate school. I've sort of shucked off some of that identity. It's kind of a, more like my town than where I live now. And I kind of like that. I'm proud of it because it is this heritage and tradition; and I kind of like that I've moved away. I've made my own distance from it. But I have a new identity. I have a new set of clothes, a new set of style.

And I think what you're suggesting is, is that when you we are on the internet, when we're in these social media clouds and soups and stews, and we have all these wonderful words to try to capture this emergent phenomenon called the wisdom of network conversation--when I'm in that, I kind of don't have an identity. And I think that's your point. I don't have that tribal feeling. And I do think--although I could have my tribes within it, of course: I can't help myself there. I tend to find tribes on my social media, and I think that's a human impulse we have. But ultimately, I'm submerged in the tribe. I'm submerged in Twitter.

And what you're suggesting--and I'm going to try it out and see what you think--kind of suggesting: 'Okay, Twitter is--there's some really bad neighborhoods in Twitter. And there's some high rise apartments that look really beautiful, but once you get inside them, they're not so great. But there's also this wonderful back and forth. There's this neighborhood bar, that's virtual, where I can go hang out. And it's--unlike the bar in "Cheers," nobody knows your name. They know it literally because they see what your Twitter handle is. But, you're creating something.'

And I think the idea that that is something noble, that that is something human, that that is something that's actually productive even, is--it's a novel idea. I think most of us think of it as just entertainment. And that's totally wrong. And I think one of your many insights here is that, you're actually participating in something quite grand that you're not even probably aware of, as is true of any emergent phenomena. We always use the ant and the ant colony. The ant knows nothing about the purpose of the ant colony. It just has this very narrow task of, say, dropping pheromones for other ants to follow to the trail of where the food is. They don't realize what the consequences are, don't think about it. So here we are, just kind of fooling around, yelling. Got my megaphone--it's a very small megaphone--on these social media platforms. And, as we all talk together, we create something unique.

So I think it's a really beautiful idea and it's not an easy idea to sell, but I like it. And I think the fear of being ordinary, the FOBO worry, that I'll be submerged in this soup and only be a virtual cog of some sort. is part of what's going on here.

Venkatesh Rao: Yeah, and you're right. It's one of those things that I think a lot of us are realizing at the same time, that there's something much deeper going on.

And I want to sort of go back to a couple of things you said, like, think of the idea of like the dots you didn't connect or the fact that I pegged you as a Chicago school economist and you clarified that you've kind of drifted off that. So a lot of this idea of, like, ego-validating narrative construction that we think of as the history of an intellectual tradition or tradition of ideas--it's pure myth-making. It's just a pretty story we tell ourselves about what actually happened. It's a narrative on top of a lot of phenomenology. And, arguably it's a false sense of sort of historical clarity on top of a tradition that was never not murky. So Twitter has just made it impossible for us to lie about the truth of our intellectual tradition and histories. You might credit one person with sort of taking you down a bunny trail. You don't know about the six other people who are involved in the soup, and you just could not see the soup before. Now you can see the soup. You can see every connection that the soup is making.

So that's one point to keep in mind: that it was always false. It's not that it became false now, but the soup has always been the actual foundation of the discourse.

Another interesting idea is, you've got the famous Harry Truman quote--what is it? --'It's amazing what's possible when you don't care who gets the credit'?

Russ Roberts: Yeah. Well, it's a good example because Harry Truman didn't say that.

Venkatesh Rao: Exactly.

Russ Roberts: It's gets attributed to Ronald Reagan who certainly--if Harry Truman said it, it probably didn't start with Ronald Reagan. Although it's a deep and obvious truth. So it could have been thought of by more than one person.

As far as I know, the first example that I know of the coining[?] is in David McCullough's book on the Panama Canal. The engineer who built the canal said that; and I'm blanking on his name, which is perfect for this conversation, right? I'm not giving him the credit. I'm going to confuse him with the guy who built the Brooklyn Bridge. But the guy who built the Panama Canal, which took an enormous team of human beings in all different capacities said that, I think at least before Harry Truman. Carry on.

Venkatesh Rao: So that's actually a wonderful example, and it's great that it kind of organically emerged in our conversation [?inaudible 00:32:26]. And interestingly, that phenomenon has a name. Have you heard of Stigler's Law of Eponymy?

Russ Roberts: Of course. He was on my--

Venkatesh Rao: He didn't come up with that.

Russ Roberts: He was on my Committee, and I actually--my Ph.D Committee. But it's George Stigler we're talking about. And it's funny that you mention it because it crossed my mind about six minutes ago and I thought, 'Should I bring that up? Nah, I'll leave it alone.' Explain what it is.

Venkatesh Rao: I think it's perfectly pertinent and it's wonderful that Stigler's Law of Eponymy was not actually coined by Stigler. And it's--you see this sort of thing all over the place. Like, these days when I do actually write a serious longer essay or book chapter and I actually do try to go and look for the provenance of various quotes, I'm amazed at how often that I find, like, True Quote Investigator or one of those sites, just how deep the bunny trail behind every false-attributed quote goes. It's like versions and versions and versions and in the end it gets lost in some murky thing 100 years ago. And I love that, because it tells me that books written 50, 60 years ago where you couldn't do this kind of research as easily are likely absolutely chock full of misattribution. So it's like rotten all the way through, the citational sort of web there. So it's kind of good that we're backing off from that.

Russ Roberts: But describe--you say what it is, Stigler's Law of Eponymy. It's: Things named after people weren't discovered by them.

Venkatesh Rao: Exactly. And I wouldn't sort of generalize that to all ideas. So, not just name things like children's or ideas, just in general. Like take Waldenponding. I know I thought of it independently, but I haven't actually done the research to see, like, in the 100-plus years since Thoreau, whether somebody else came up with that kind of satirical [?]--

34:14

Russ Roberts: Well, it's also possible that someone else thought of it; you saw it, didn't notice it; and it somehow rose in your brand. That happens to me with other people's work; but it happens to me with my own work. I think of what I think is a novel idea, and I thought of it already, but I forgot about it.

Venkatesh Rao: Yep. So all of this, I think what we're both getting at is the absolute richness of thought and intelligence-mining that can come up if you sort of let your identity, not necessarily be dissolved--it's not like we're all joining Twitter as a cult--but sort of set it on the side. It's not like you're losing your identity. You're just not using it at the moment. And you're diving in. So much is possible. And, when you look at the opposite of vector that a lot of people are encouraging us to go on, which is Waldenponding--which ironically, by the way, the biggest evangelists are former technologists who had a hand in designing that end. And this is like a historical pattern. The biggest evangelist for religion are the ones who left the opposing religion. Right? And it's when you've talked to--

Russ Roberts: Sure. More Catholic than the Pope. That's where it comes--that's what that expression is about. Right? The convert is more Catholic than the Pope. It's a real thing.

Venkatesh Rao: And you see, when you talk to, like, regular people who are not part of the Silicon Valley tech economy like we are, they're actually not as--I don't know--they don't take this as seriously. They're just rolling with it and figuring it out as they go along. And most of them are doing a reasonably good job.

Now, this doesn't mean there aren't elements of what they're doing that aren't valuable. I do think, whereas the overall shaming campaign of shaming the tech companies into like broad manifesto-ish stuff that's, like, not helpful. There may be specific ideas of, 'All right, turn off this dark pattern; have this ability to clear dark mode.'

All those are maybe good, but I do want to point out one exception to this general critique, which is: when you have these large, bottom-up platforms of, like, participatory conversations, and something like national cybersecurity agency with like very trained operatives gets in and they are running the equal end of information special ops and misinformation campaigns and things like that, that's something that you do have to kind of take seriously and as a special case of what's happening.

So, hacking of election discourses and things like that is what I'm getting at. So there, yeah. But that's a very special case and that's not something the general Waldenponding, [?] retreat, works on. But the reason I'm bringing that up is if you look at this conversation we've been having it for about 15, 20 years--Nick Carr, Cal Newport on Deep Work, all that stuff. But it got particularly acute in the last three or four years for a couple of unrelated reasons. One is, you've got all this political-grade [?] and just the general PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder] of being online at a toxic time. And a lot of that is caused very deliberately by focused bad actors. So, that's one thing that's getting conflated. And the other is that whether it's caused by Russian spies or, you know, generally a lot of toxic baggage being aired, part of the retreat is a pattern of healing rather than actual adaptation to a new information environment. And this, I think, is actually a legitimate thing. So, if you are, say, in, particularly in the politics part of Twitter and you're a good fit and you've been enjoying being part of the big soup computer since before 2016, but in 2016, it just got a little too toxic and you retreated--I think that's a good thing. That's a kind of information-processing hygiene that we all have to develop. We have to learn to retreat when the psychological stress is too much and then go back in when we've kind of recovered and healed a bit. So, managing your sort of emotional reactions to the discourse is actually important.

But this again I would argue is just more intense and democratic right now. But it's always been the case. Like you could have been in an academic seminar 30 years ago where a rude older faculty member sort of said something rude and you had to go away and go on a vacation to recover from the trauma, right?

Russ Roberts: Yeah. You got beat up. Yeah.

Venkatesh Rao: It's a learning process.

38:32

Russ Roberts: I want to give an example of that. And then I want to challenge your--might want to draw the boundary in a different place. So, I'm pretty active on Twitter. Sometimes I worry I'm too active. I do think if I'm not careful, I'm down in the bottom left-hand corner of your diagram on small-minded things--it's more like gossip rather than the deep exchange of ideas. And I recently--it's just it's bizarre, but it took me this long to have this cultural response--I recently started blocking people. And I feel bad--which is funny. Somebody comes online, who follows me on Twitter, somebody tweets; they are nasty. Potentially sometimes antisemitic. They are, at a minimum, rude. And the thing they do that starts to bother me so much that I now put it in my profile on Twitter is: they assume the worst about me and don't bother finding out what I actually think or say.

Russ Roberts: And I just block them. I want to say it's in my profile: I say I now block people who do that. And at first, I thought, like, 'It makes me comfortable.' But what it's really like is a guy is, you're out in your yard and a guy comes down the street, his windows are down in his car and he yells some antisemitic or grotesque insult to you. And it's one thing to say, 'Well, just don't listen to it.' But that's hard to do. It's really hard to do. It's much better just to say, 'I'm going to go inside now. I'm not going to let this guy bug me. I'm not going to let him get at me.' And so now I just block him; and it's fantastic. It is a way to cope with this emotional part of this that I think we're really unprepared for it.

The other example, the other metaphor I like for this--and you can steal this, thank God, and use it in your own: pretend you thought of it--is, to me, Twitter is like somebody putting a bumper sticker on my car. Right? I'm driving down the street. All of a sudden somebody slaps a bumper sticker on my car about my identity or myself. And it's like, 'No, no, no. I get to decide what bumper sticker goes on my car.' And I think that's the dark side of Twitter. And I just block people who put bumper stickers on my car that aren't really describing what kind of person I am. Okay. So, you want to say something: Go ahead.

Venkatesh Rao: Oh, yeah: I think that's a very important point. And I actually made this point in a couple of newsletters ago: that social media has an addictive bias. You're encouraged to acquire followers, post more and more. And it has very few subtracting mechanisms like blocking and muting. And the ones that we do have are primitive and kind of a nuclear option.

So, I would actually state your point in an even stronger form. I also initially did not like blocking because it seemed uncivil; and I think I had the wrong calibration of what civility is. But I've since gone beyond like just blocking rude people or people who are just very objectionably ideologically too far from me, and simply blocking anybody with whom I have too much problem just getting through and it's simply not worth the trouble.

So, I love Jeff Bezos's line that Amazon is willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time. So, I adopt that attitude in my role in places like Twitter, which is: I am willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time. I'm part of some very productive social media, hive-mind competitions, and that I like and I want to be there and I want to be part of that conversation. But other conversations, things I might say very casually and quickly without, like, trying to be very clearly understood by people who don't know me, I am going to be misunderstood. And I'm okay with that. And quite often there's going to be an asymmetry on the part of my relationship with people who I end up confusing. So, I might have very little interest in making sure somebody else understands me correctly, but they might have a very intense interest in making sure they understand me correctly.

And often they get annoyingly, almost jokingly, where they're like constantly dogging me to self-clarify, add detail. And I'm like, 'Sorry, this is not a useful part of a conversation for me and I'm not doing.' So, this is like a market. It's ultimately selfish individual motives. 'I'm not being altruistic here. I'm participating in conversations that are productive for me as well. And if it's not, and you're being a little too annoying, I'm going to mute or block you.' So I've done that multiple times and I become very liberal with that and it's almost become like, it's not a personal thing any more. And most of my blocks and mutes are in fact not about civility at all any more. I would say eight out of 10 of them are, 'You're just being annoying. The conversational gap between our respective computational processes in this global social computer are just too far apart. Let's not bother. It's just not worth trying to cross-pollinate intelligence across these two conversations.'

So that's my reaction. But another sort of related phenomenon I want to point out is, I think of the most productive conversations in places like Twitter as ones that are not tribal. That don't degenerate into tribal derping. So, for me it's like confirmation and disconfirmation are the two least useful things to do on Twitter. The most useful thing is to actually find a new dimension and vector of a conversation that's neither confirmatory nor dis-confirmatory. And a lot of people don't like that. They are in such strong, you know, beef-only mode or psychology or are constantly beefing along tribal lines, all they're interested in is confirmation and dis-confirmation. And that's just not interesting because it's a kind of computation that can be run on, like, the New York Times op-ed section. It's a primitive kind of discourse. I'm just not interested. I'm interested in the more sophisticated discourses that Twitter is capable of.

Russ Roberts: What we need is a website where there would be a microphone; you would say something like 'I like mushroom pizza,' and there would be an enormous roar of like a football stadium size crowd. You know, so that you can get fix of ego and tribal sentiment. You could have different kinds. When you say, 'I don't like so-and-so,' some political figure, the crowd would not just roar, but angrily roar and sound violent. Anyway.

Venkatesh Rao: I think you describe Instagram.

Russ Roberts: Instagram. I'm not much of an Instagrammer, so I can't fully respond to that.

45:04

Russ Roberts: I want to ask you a different question. I think there are two places where I disagree with you in a more fundamental way. And I'll let you react to this. So the first one is, we've never met. You and I have never met. I have an instinctive liking for you based on the way you write and your flamboyant style. The fact that you have all kinds of insights--some of which I don't understand, by the way. Which is fun. That's a plus. That's feature, not a bug. Right? So I've read a few of your pieces before and I like them a lot. So we could imagine in the old days you'd have an article in a magazine, and I would enjoy that, and I would write you a letter. And I would say, 'Dear Mr. Rao, I really enjoyed your piece on Waldenponding. I found it very thoughtful.'

And then I might say something like, 'I wrote a piece that's related to that you might enjoy, if your library has it, blah blah blah.' So that's a 1950s, 1970s interaction. And you'd get that letter to be fun. My father used to write poets and other people, other authors whose work he liked, and they would often write back. Here's a letter from Robert Penn Warren, which shocked me that Robert Penn Warren bothered to respond to my dad--who's in a different part in the soup. But he had time and was either flattered or thought it was important--for whatever reason he responded. It was really sweet. So that's the old style.

Now, today, you and I could have a Twitter friendship. We could go back and forth on Twitter. We haven't, I don't think, much. I did just before an hour or two before the conversation: I tweeted an article about Thoreau and Walden that you, I saw you liked that. I thought, 'That's nice. He's paying attention. That's good. And maybe he'll read it before we do this interview. It's by Kathryn Schulz--and if we don't get to talk about it, we'll put a link up to it--where she explains Thoreau is a wicked and despicable person and a hypocrite. And the whole Waldenponding thing is nonsense.' But it's a great piece, by the way. Very thoughtful and entertaining and written with great, fervent style as Kathryn Schulz often does. So I just mentioned that in passing

But, we could've responded. Instead of having you on EconTalk, we could have gone back and forth on Twitter. But now we got to a new level. We're having an actual conversation, audio. We video-Skyped for a minute when we started this and we could see each other.

And then the fourth level--this is what I want to focus on. The next level would be, the next time I'm in Seattle or you're in the Washington D.C. area, we could sit down and have coffee, and that would be kind of fun just to see each other face to face. But the real, I think the more important thing would be if we could have coffee regularly--and I have friends I have coffee with regularly--a different type of conversation emerges. A different type of human experience emerges. Some of it, by the way, is overrated. Some of it is--Tyler Cowen recently defended social media versus parties. Parties are face-to-face but often loud, empty and superficial. And he's got something to say there. But, at the same time, I don't think we want to underrate deep human face-to-face connection. And I do think that the digital revolution has challenged that. And, there is a temptation to stay in my room all day, flicking through Twitter if I'm not careful. So you didn't mention anything like that. Do you want to say anything about that?

Venkatesh Rao: Oh, absolutely. I think that's because you have, most of your life still in traditional institutions. I believe you are at Hoover. So right now, by the way, I'm not in Seattle: I'm in Los Angeles on a fellowship at the Berggruen Institute, but I've spent much of the last 10 years out in the wild, so to speak. And a lot of what you describe, for me it has happened a lot more intensely out here in the social media wild than it ever did in my institutional settings. So, for four years before I became a free agent consultant blogger, so 2006-2011, I was working at Xerox in their research group and I had like hallway interactions. And before that I was in academia for almost a decade, and I would have the same kind of hallway interactions and extended frequent coffee or lunch dates with colleagues and coworkers.

So I had all that. In fact, there used to be a law called the 50-Foot Law, which was most collaboration happens within 50 feet. This is pre-internet. And one of the first things I ever wrote about Twitter, when I first saw Twitter--this was 2007 or 2008, one of my earliest blog posts about Twitter was the 50-Foot Rule has been sort of refactored online, and now your 50-foot zone is actually global. So now you have to reimagine that 50-foot zone as the zone of what you can think of as intimate conversations on Twitter that are likely to escalate into long, extended relationships that will actually get as intimate as physical distance and geography allows. So there are people who've literally gotten married off Twitter. So that's an extreme case.

But yeah, over the last 10, 15 years, when I look back, I started a conference around my blog. I've had a huge number of wonderful friendships and collaborations emerge from it. There's people I meet as regularly as I can. There's Facebook groups, slacks[?], extended email threads, lots of consulting gigs have come out of this. So I would say, for my sort of extra institutional feral lifestyle for the last decade, the kind of things you say are valuable and precious about the old institutional life, I've experienced them about two x, three x more than I ever did in institutional life. So I think the reason people don't realize this is they still have enough invested in the old institutional life that they have no need to kind of develop it in the social media world. And what ends up happening if you're forced to do that is you discover that it's possible to do that stuff in a lot more deep way and a lot more flexible way. And it's only a question of how imaginative you are and how much you actually want it.

51:18

Russ Roberts: So I think if Nick Carr--whose book, I apologize to Mr. Carr, I have not read--as you say, I think you alluded to earlier, I think he's the guy who said Google is ruining your brain. And he did have a book called The Shallows. I do remember that. What he might respond--and I'm going to disagree with him after I give his fake response, and then you can see if you agree with either of us. You might say, 'Okay, that's all nice. But the truth is, is that our face-to-face interactions have deteriorated as the internet has arisen because now our attention span is shorter. We might be face to face, but we're more likely to check our phone, respond to a text, flick through Twitter, find it hard to stay focused on a person face to face because I want to get back to my email and back to my Twitterverse.'

And what I'm going to disagree with him, and I'm going to use your metaphor: I think that there's some truth to it, by the way. I don't think it's absurd. I think that it is harder for people to sit still at dinner. And we have a rule in our house: we don't answer the phone or look at our phones during meals. I think those are some good rules. I think that's okay. But I think there's a range of face-to-face, a range of physical interaction. You've inspired me: we'll call it--I'm sure there's a cleverer version--brick and mortaring. As a human, I need to get a pun on 'brick,' like friend and mortaring. We'll figure it out later.

But, I have lots of face-to-face interactions that are superficial and somewhat sterile. And then we have really deep ones. We have really extraordinary connections we make with people online and then also face to face. And I don't think we've lost those. I don't think we've lost the ability to have the deep ones. And it's like your continuum of sort of gossipy superficial conversation down in the left-hand corner, and up in the right-hand corner is a profound exchange of ideas that changes the way you look at the world, that connects you to another human being in a way that creates a great emotional reward and delight.

And I think those, if I could take the most charitable view of the internet, is that--and I can say this as the host of EconTalk--I've met more interesting people in the last 10 years face to face, certainly online, certainly over interviewing people. That's been an amazing gift and privilege to be able to do that. But the face-to-face times that I interact with people are still deeply moving and profound. And as you say, I think you're right. I think I have more of them. I have exposure to more interesting people than I did in a world where I'd have that 50-Foot Rule and only interact with the people on my corridor.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. And I would, again, I seem to be in a pattern of taking your points and refitting them in an even stronger form. But I would say, when you talk about brick and mortaring, look back at the reality of our pre-internet sort of highly brick and mortar social life. And, like Tyler Cowen said, many parties are empty. But I would elaborate on that and say: We remember the interactions that are lovely and wonderful face-to-face interactions, but we kind of block out of our memories the ones that are not. And I remember growing up, so many damn boring visits to my parents' friends, ceremonial culture of norms. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. We used to live in a culture of norms where there was an expectation of sort of polite participation in vast hours, countless hours of like really boring, tedious face time. And I hated it.

And one of the most wonderful things that has happened as a result of the internet is that those online internet norms of 'If I'm bored, I'm going to leave,' they're actually percolating into meatspace. And the way that's happening is--for example, this became the Law of Two Feet in what used to be called open space technology and then became BarCamps. Where, when you do an unconference, you don't have the old academic conference approach of, just because of a respected elder professor is doing the keynote, you're sort of forced to sit, stay in the room, and pay attention even though bored out of your mind. You should leave. So modern unconferences have the internet-like Law of Two Feet, which is: If you're not actually interested in the conversation, if the person is boring, you get up and leave. Do something better with your time.

And I like that that norm is shifting in a more online way. I think Nir Eyal in his book, one of his points--I'm still looking through it--he talks about, I think he calls it a phubber or something. So somebody who is, like, snubbing you with a phone at dinner. So you're at dinner and apparently you're boring your dinner partner. So that person pulls out their phone and starts checking email at the slightest interruption. Right? So that's phone snubbing, or phubbing, as he calls it. But look at what that signifies. It tells you that you're in a fundamentally boring conversation you don't want to be in.

And though the sort of actual behavior may be obnoxious, of pulling out your phone and actually checking out literally, wouldn't it be so much nicer to not have that lunch meeting at all and to be able on Twitter to actually triage that and say, 'All right, it's been fun chatting with you for three minutes on Twitter, but I'm going to say no to coffee with you because you're probably going to bore me and I'm going to end up checking my phone. So let's not go there and insult and snub each other.' Right?

So, I love that that has now become a possibility and we're able to make our more intimate, deeper exchanges more high yielding. More of them are meaningful ,and the ones that are meaningful are more meaningful. Right?

And this is actually probably the biggest meta-critique I have with Waldenponding, which is it fetishizes an old style brick and mortar--and it's actually, by the way, that's actually as perverse a kind of attention hacking as the social media platforms do to you. So the social media platforms might be throwing clickbait at you and dragging you to useless articles you don't want. But equally there's all these sort of evangelists of Waldenponding who are hacking your attention with, like, ritual descriptions of 'Oh, what game nights! Wonderful world campfire lights, wonderful world, like family dinners, wonderful.' And they try to suck you back into that world and you realize that, 'You know what? That's romanticizing the past. And it never actually was that great. And I hate this freaking game night I've been sucked into.'

57:52

Russ Roberts:

Russ Roberts: That's awesome. Now, you remind me of my dad who often when he would, we would describe a dinner party, he would often say, 'Nyeah, I wish I'd been upstairs with my book.' It was gauche in the 1950s and the 1960s or '70s or '80s to take out a book in the middle of a conversation. But there were times when my dad would just say, 'I need to go lay down.' And he'd go upstairs and just read his book. Sometimes in the middle of a social gathering. Which had some kind of influence on me, I'm sure.

The other thing that I have to point out, Venkat, which is unbelievably great, is that about fo

Barcelona 7-11-2019. Ayer me atreví demasiado fotografiando. Era evidente que los 'oprimidos' acumulan combustible para se supone las hogueras que han de impedir que los antidisturbios levanten manu militari su organizada acampada. Fui tan imprudente que un mozalvete con pinta de 'profesional' de la lucha callejera me gritó ¡¡¡fotos no!!! "dame el móvil nazi de mierda", mientras extendía un gruesa cuerda de árbol a árbol cortando la calzada principal de la Gran Via.

La foto tenía mala intención. Ahora le diría que no se preocupe que mi blog apenas se encuentra por el 'hackeo' ordenado por sus 'nazis' jefes, y que además ya ni le recuerdo. No sé que le contesté, pero si no diré que salí corriendo, si lo sificiente para escapar de varios 'oprimidos', tipo 'perchas', que se dirigían hacia mí. Las piernas demostraron que aun dan de sí, y me perdí entre los muchos paseantes. Por supuesto no volveré por la Plaza Universidad mientras dure la situación. Situación que no creo dure hasta que liberen a sus adorados 'presos políticos', ni menos hasta la declaración de la República de Cataluña. Otro inútil cuadro, o acto de la comedia del absurdo. Recuerdo que en la Plaza Cataluña de los 'indignados' del Mayo del 2011 donde fotografié a placer nadie me prohibió 'hacer fotos'.  

La escena de acumulación de madera y cartón iniciada mínimo anteayer se realiza tan a la vista, y ya abultan tanto, que me extraña la pasividad de las patrullas de Mossos y Guardia Urbana que se pasean y circulan por la plaza, así como 'infiltrados' que sin duda los hay. Ni menos los equipos de limpieza del Ayuntamiento. Presumo que Via Layetana fuera un ensayo, y que en Plaza Universidad gozarán de un aquelarre propio de una noche de San Juan o de fallas de gran impacto. Los contenedores repletos de cartón y conglomerado o algún mueble presagian un gran espectáculo.

Mi escrito de ¡¡¡hace 5 años!!!

viernes, 7 de noviembre de 2014


Barcelona 7-11-2014. Me han llamado por teléfono preguntándome si sé donde ir a votar, y al responder que no, me preguntan la dirección. Mi amigo contestó la calle de su domicilio, y al insistir con el número, añadió... que hasta aquí habíamos llegado. El voluntario propagandista dijo comprender, y colgó soltando que ya la tenía. Mi amigo se subía por las paredes, en tiempos ordenó que su teléfono no apareciera ni en el listín telefónico, pero era evidente que aparecía en otros listados que ahora manejan "voluntarios civiles", incontrolados de cualquier pelaje captados por esa oscura Asamblea Nacional Catalana. El derecho a la privacidad, y el tan cacareado organismo de “protección de datos”… a hacer gárgaras.  
Alargamos la conversación con las chorradas propias entre íntimos, a él como a mí le interesaba más la deriva de los Pujol, o cómo han arruinado Cataluña, que la total oscuridad creada por la cortina de humo independentista. No es que no supiera donde ir a votar, es que ni quería hacerlo. Insisto, a la mayoría absoluta de los catalanes nos importa un pito el cuento del 9N, aunque parece vital para no más de uno a dos millones. Pero a la mayoría de esa “mayoría absoluta” de los sin voz nos inquieta el final del cuento. Nos cuesta imaginar que a la actual quiebra por expolio le suceda un viaje a ÍTACA, o sea al Averno.  
La conversación acabó con el inmediato ingreso en prisión de los “Núñez y Navarro”. El Caso Hacienda de Barcelona. Otra institución podrida de arriba abajo, corrompiendo y corrompida, y como dijo Borrell, el exministro de Hacienda, testigo cuando debiera sentarse en el banquillo, el “todo Madrid sabía” que el Delegado de Hacienda en Barcelona y su Jefe de Inspección invertían en Bolsa, por supuesto añado con “información privilegiada” por lo que oí en el propio juicio.
 Otro destrozado sumario tras quince años de instrucción que al igual que el de Banca Catalana hubiera acabado con todo el Clan Pujol. Incluir, por las recalificaciones y dobles y triples precios de los terrenos de Diagonal Mar (se citan en el sumario hasta día y hora en el notario) a su hombre de paja John Rosillo (fallecido oportunamente en Panamá), sin citar a los hijos Pujol, y al propio padre, dejaba buena parte del sumario en la incomprensión. Hasta a Javier de la Rosa declaran inocente tras nueve meses de juicio donde Suiza parecía situada a la vuelta de la esquina. Tampoco ningún acusado por Caixa Cataluña en cuyas vacías carpetas de crédito figuraba  por único estudio el “amigo de…”, según confesaron como testigos los propios empleados firmantes de esas carpetas. Prenafeta, también apareció por unos pagos irregulares de la Generalitat… no recordaba nada ¡hacía 20 años!
De aquellos lodos… Rull, coordinador general de CDC,  afirma que habrá urnas,  y Junqueras, el “cabeza de la Oposición en el Parlament”,  se relame con su hoja de ruta hacia la independencia a partir del lunes 10. Si Dios no lo remedia, y soy de los convencidos de que no se mete en estos berenjenales de la deficiente raza humana, tendremos un profesor de Historia Medieval Catalana al frente de los nuevos almogávares conquistando hasta Atenas, tras ocupar Sicilia e Ítaca. Su ilusión de reescribir una historia que por lo visto nunca le agradó. Ignoro que dirían los psiquiatras, pero como catalán de a pié, me crea cierta inquietud.
Ítaca y los Paisos Catalans, el 9N, el derecho a decidir, aplastando el “derecho a conocer” que tenemos todos los catalanes  apaleados por tanto cretino al mando en esa Autonomía convertida en un práctico e impenetrable Estado, o en la Cueva de Alibabá.
Insisto, repito y repetiré; yo, antes de que me lleven a Ítaca, quiero saber quién y cuánto se repartían por las libertades, terceros grados, ¡y permisos! de aquella Modelo de los 90. O sea, quién convertía a un sinvergüenza abogado Piqué Vidal, y un simple juez de instrucción Pascual Estevill, en los dueños de vidas y haciendas de docenas ¡o centenares! de desgraciados extorsionados, por suerte algunos tan poderosos que acabaron ¡sólo! con juez y abogado. Y de atenernos al artículo de otro tétrico personaje “Pilar Rahola”  (La Gran Corrupción: II. PILAR RAHOLA 04 Abr 2008 “Lo sabía toda Barcelona”) conocer los nombres de esos “Toda Barcelona” que me temo coincidan con las flor y nata de los vividores del independentismo, encabezados entonces ¿y ahora?, por el tenebroso Jordi Pujol.

"En el debate del lunes, fueron Pedro Sánchez y la oposición constitucionalista quienes, en franca competencia con Vox, subieron el tono a la hora de proponer mano dura contra el independentismo, sin representación en el plató de la Academia de la Televisión. Así que este martes, a modo de reacción y salvado ya el ecuador de la campaña, tocaba turno para el soberanismo, que, a cinco días de los comicios, también elevó el volumen del ruido de sables.
Dos reacciones airadas y desafiantes del Parlament y el govern a sendas maniobras del gobierno activadas este martes sintetizan esa dinámica propia de un pulso cronificado."

"El presidente de Ciudadanos en el Parlament, Carlos Carrizosa, ha opinado este martes que el presidente de la Generalitat, Quim Torra, y el del Parlament, Roger Torrent, lanzan consignas de "insurrección" contra el rey Felipe VI desde la cámara catalana que luego se ejecutan "en la calle".
Carrizosa ha protagonizado este martes un acto de campaña en el Born de Barcelona bajo el lema "Cataluña es España", junto a la candidata del partido naranja por Barcelona al Congreso, Carina Mejías, o el concejal en el ayuntamiento de Barcelona Paco Sierra, entre otros dirigentes.
Durante su intervención en el acto, Carrizosa se ha pronunciado en estos términos tras los incidentes registrados anoche en las inmediaciones del Palacio de Congresos, donde la familia real participaba en la entrega de los Premios Princesa de Girona."


 "La cabeza de lista de En Comú Podem en Girona para las elecciones generales del 10 de noviembre, Laura López, ha levantado cierta controversia entre sectores independentistas por una entrevista publicada en el 'Diari de Girona' en la que afirma, al ser preguntada por si Puigdemont es un líder, que "es un vivales"."

*Subject to change

The WHS has two main components – the Rules of Handicapping and the Course Rating System. The Rules of Handicapping are encompassed within seven Rules to inform administrators and golfers on how an official Handicap Index is calculated and administered, with some flexibility given to national associations based on how the sport is played and enjoyed in their region. The Course Rating System, based on the USGA Course Rating System first adopted nearly 50 years ago and already adopted on nearly every continent, sets out a consistent method of determining a course’s difficulty. Together, these components become the foundational elements in determining a golfer’s Handicap Index.

“When the golf community works together, everyone benefits,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA.  “We have seen the benefit that handicapping has provided for decades, providing greater enjoyment for all who play. To have a single set of Rules of Handicapping for the game will connect golfers from country to country, and we are excited to bring the best of all worlds together through this initiative.

“It is one of the many ways we are investing in golf’s future, to strengthen and foster growth of the entire game for years to come.”

Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said, “The game of golf is transforming to meet the needs of the modern-day golfer; modernizing the Rules this year was an important step forward in that regard and the World Handicap System will be another.

“Our hope is that the launch of the WHS will be a catalyst for change; signalling the start of a new era of golfer engagement, being inclusive by embracing all golfers, whatever their level of ability, and broadening its appeal to a much wider audience.”

“Change also means opportunity and, managed appropriately, this can only be good for the game. It does mean there will be a period of adjustment, as we saw with the new Rules, but once it beds in golfers and golf clubs will benefit in many ways from the new system.”

In preparation for the launch of the WHS, more than 3,000 golf courses have been rated for the first time and an extensive education program has been delivered. By the end of 2019, more than 90 National Associations will have attended an educational seminar and a robust library of resources is hosted on WHS.com to support regional education.

Rules of Handicapping books are being produced and will be translated and delivered through national associations.

In addition, the USGA and The R&A have developed a series of golfer-focused materials, including videos, infographics and posters, which can be used by national associations and shared with golf clubs for the benefit of golfers. 

This includes a promotional video which can be seen here featuring Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player and voices of recreational golfers from around the world to encourage as many golfers as possible to obtain and maintain a handicap.

The materials explain the system’s key features, including:

  • Flexibility in formats of play, allowing both competitive and recreational rounds to count for handicap purposes and ensuring that a Handicap Index reflects demonstrated ability
  • A minimal number of scores needed to obtain a new handicap; with the number of scores needed to obtain a new handicap being 54 holes from any combination of 18-hole and 9-hole rounds (with some discretion available for national or regional associations)
  • An average-based calculation of a handicap, taken from the best eight out of the last 20 scores and factoring in memory of demonstrated ability for better responsiveness/control
  • A calculation that considers the impact that abnormal course and weather conditions might have on a player’s performance each day
  • Timely handicap revisions
  • A limit of Net Double Bogey on the maximum hole score (for handicapping purposes only)
  • A maximum handicap limit of 54.0, regardless of gender, to encourage more golfers to measure and track their performance to increase their enjoyment of the game

The formation of a World Handicap System was first conceived in 2011 between the USGA and The R&A in an effort to engage more golfers in the game and promote equity, no matter where golf is played. The effort unites six existing handicapping systems into one, while embracing the many ways the game is played across cultures. 

Beginning in 2020, the new WHS will be governed by the USGA and The R&A and administered by national and regional golf associations around the world.

The existing six handicapping authorities, Golf Australia, the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU) in Great Britain and Ireland, the European Golf Association (EGA), the South African Golf Association (SAGA), the Argentine Golf Association (AAG) and the USGA, represent approximately 15 million golfers in 80 countries who currently maintain a golf handicap.  

As an extension of their support of the Rules of Golf worldwide, Rolex has made a commitment to support the USGA’s and The R&A’s efforts to implement the World Handicap System.

AEROPUERTO LAS AMÉRICAS.- Dominicanos que vivían ilegalmente en diversos países, incluyendo Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico, siguen regresando voluntariamente al país, más del cincuenta por ciento mujeres.


Además de Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico, también están llegando criollos con cartas de ruta de los consulados y otros documentos desde Venezuela, Panamá, España, Francia, Argentina, Chile, San Martin, Guadalupe, Martinica y otras naciones.



Muchos de los criollos viajaron a los países, especialmente Puerto Rico, Panamá, Venezuela, Estados Unidos y España, con visas y otros documentos legales, pero permanecieron en ellos más del tiempo otorgado por los servicios de Inmigración, cayendo como ciudadanos ilegales.



A su regreso al país, los criollos declararon a las autoridades nacionales que vivían en zozobra en las calles y escondidos en lugares debido a la persecución de los servicios de inmigración y policiales de esos países, especialmente Puerto Rico y Panamá.



Para poder sobrevivir, tenían que soportar explotación por parte de algunos empleadores dándole trabajo, corriendo el riesgo de ser sancionados con multas y prisión por los organismos federales, especialmente estadounidenses y puertorriqueños.



Muchas de las mujeres también testimoniaron que para poder sobrevivir en los lugares donde se encontraban, tenían que realizar labores domésticas, vender productos y chucherías en las calles y viviendas, o simplemente trabajar en centros nocturnos.



Se dijo que muchos de los criollos que llegan de forma voluntaria al país, pudieron regresar con sus propios documentos y cubriendo sus gastos y otros con cartas de ruta, con el apoyo de otros criollos y amigos. de las naciones donde estaban.

SMMC recruits House Officer Dr. Liqui Lung via Fred Expo

 Cache   

SINT MAARTEN (CAY HILL) - St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) recently welcomed Dr. Feyemy Liqui Lung who is working as a House Officer at the hospital and was recruited via the Dutch Caribbean Recruitment Expo, FRED.

Dr. Liqui Lung is no stranger to St. Maarten as her mother was raised on the island and states: “I was born and raised in Curacao. When I studied in Europe, I started to appreciate the Caribbean more and more, and also became to realize the big culture differences there is between the place I was studying (The Netherlands) and the place where I was born (Curacao). My mother was raised on St. Maarten and hearing her good memories of the island, I was always curious to get to know this part of the Caribbean”.

As a House Officer at SMMC she will work, examine, diagnose as well as administer general medical treatment in the prevention and control of diseases. In her new capacity, she works in close collaboration with the Medical Specialists to provide medical care to patients on the Medical/Surgical ward.

When asked what her primary role will be as a House Officer at SMMC, Dr. Liqui Lung states: “My primary role as House Officer is to take care of the patients who are admitted to the hospital. With the daily ward rounds, I get to know the patients and find out what is needed to take care of them and finally, to safely discharge them”

Dr. Liqui Lung has worked in South Africa and Panama apart from The Netherlands as an intern and when asked about those experiences, she stated: “I learned that there is no one way to perform medicine. As a doctor you wish and try to do the best you can for your patient. My experiences abroad thought me that the best care for patients variates between cultures. Not only from a social side, but also considering the resources that are available. For instance, in Panama I experienced for the first time how a Cardiologist gave me money out of his own wallet to buy medicine at the pharmacy across the hospital, because the necessary medicine was not available at the hospital. A situation like this would be unthinkable in The Netherlands, where I got my education. In South Africa, I learned that operations are also possible in the heat of 30 degrees Celsius (without air-conditioning). Finally, in Curacao, where I worked at the ER, I learned that (secondary) prevention and education is very important. Especially for people with Asthma Exacerbation and Diabetic comas because of not understanding how to use their medication”.    

Asked what her first impression is about SMMC, Dr. Liqui Lung responds candidly: “Working at SMMC is actually pretty similar to my previous job in The Netherlands. Logistically the work is almost the same. The main difference is the reasons of admissions. From my first impression I expect to have a great and educational time here.

Medical Director, Dr. Felix Holiday states: “With the arrival of Dr. Liqui Lung Another we again emphasize our mission to enhance quality care while expanding the variety of specialties. It also gives great pleasure to be able contribute to young professionals from the Dutch Caribbean to further build their career through SMMC.”

SMMC welcomes Dr. Liqui Lung to its team of Doctors and nurses and look forward to a good working relationship together, serving our patient community with quality care close to home.

You Sunk My Battleship

 Cache   
Preface

People who make military policy and amateurs who follow it alike are in something of a vacuum when it comes to naval warfare.  While the Navy is a very large share of the United States Defense Department budget, there have been so few skirmishes in the past fifty years or so that it is hard to get a reality check on the multi-billion dollar expenditures involved. The few incidents which have occurred, meanwhile, have taken on disproportionate importance.  

While some naval history is too distant to be of much use, from the ramming battles between glorified rowboats of the Greeks, to the days of sails and cannons, it is fair, at least, to look at the experience of World War II, the last full fledged blue sea naval campaign in world history.  This experience has informed much of the current conventional wisdom regarding naval warfare, and while the lessons learned in World War II need to be updated to reflect technological advances that have taken place since then, they are too recent to safely ignore.

Among other things, World War II taught the lesson that the heavy armor of a battleship was no match for modern offensive weapons. 

As the Wikipedia article linked above explains:
Battleships were the largest and most complex, and hence the most expensive warships of their time; as a result, the value of investment in battleships has always been contested. 
As the French politician Etienne Lamy wrote in 1879, "The construction of battleships is so costly, their effectiveness so uncertain and of such short duration, that the enterprise of creating an armored fleet seems to leave fruitless the perseverance of a people". The Jeune École school of thought of the 1870s and 1880s sought alternatives to the crippling expense and debatable utility of a conventional battlefleet. It proposed what would nowadays be termed a sea denial strategy, based on fast, long-ranged cruisers for commerce raiding and torpedo boat flotillas to attack enemy ships attempting to blockade French ports. 
The ideas of the Jeune École were ahead of their time; it was not until the 20th century that efficient mines, torpedoes, submarines, and aircraft were available that allowed similar ideas to be effectively implemented. The determination of powers such as Germany to build battlefleets with which to confront much stronger rivals has been criticised by historians, who emphasise the futility of investment in a battlefleet that has no chance of matching its opponent in an actual battle.
Large Warships In Existing Navies

Today, there are only two ships of the battleship class in the world, both in the Russian Navy, only one of which is in active service, the 28,000 ton Admiral Nakhimov commissioned in 1988 is currently undergoing refit and is out of service, and the 28,000 ton Pyotr Velikiy, of the same class commissioned in 1998 is in active service.  

The 14,564 ton Zumwalt class destroyer of the U.S. Navy, the largest warship in the U.S. Navy that is not an aircraft carrier or non-combatant logistics ship, and is is arguably misclassified as a destroyer deserves a battleship designation. Just three Zumwalt class destroyers have three have been built (and no more have been ordered). One was commissioned in 2016, one was commissioned in 2019, and one is awaiting a commission later this year. It cost $7.5 billion per ship of total cost to build and has been severely criticized:
Mike Fredenburg analyzed the program for National Review after Zumwalt broke down in the Panama Canal in November 2016, and he concluded that the ship's problems "are emblematic of a defense procurement system that is rapidly losing its ability to meet our national security needs." Fredenburg went on to detail problems relating to the skyrocketing costs, lack of accountability, unrealistic goals, a flawed concept of operations, the perils of designing a warship around stealth, and the failure of the Advanced Gun System. He concludes:

"The Zumwalt is an unmitigated disaster. Clearly it is not a good fit as a frontline warship. With its guns neutered, its role as a primary anti-submarine-warfare asset in question, its anti-air-warfare capabilities inferior to those of our current workhorse, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, and its stealth not nearly as advantageous as advertised, the Zumwalt seems to be a ship without a mission."
Indeed, only twenty navies in the world have surface warships (including aircraft carriers, but not transport ships) larger than a frigate: U.S. (111), Japan (48), China (33), Russia (20), India (14), France (14), United Kingdom (7), Norway (5), Italy (4), Taiwan (4), Netherlands (4), Denmark (3), Germany (3), South Korea (3), Egypt (3), Saudi Arabia (3), Spain (2), Brazil (1), Thailand (1), and Morocco (1).

Only seven of these countries (China, Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Thailand and Morocco) would plausibly be U.S. naval warfare adversaries in the foreseeable future (while many of the remaining thirteen countries would likely be allies of the U.S. in an future naval warfare in their region). These seven plausible adversaries have 62 large surface warships ships combined. Of these only China and Russia are really serious concerns militarily and they have 53 large surface warships combined.

The Russian fleet's large ships, moreover, are split between several global regions that are distant from each other in some case (Northern, Baltic, Black Sea and Pacific). The aircraft carrier, the battleship, one smaller cruiser, and six destroyers are in Russia's Northern fleet. One smaller cruiser and five destroyers are in Russia's Pacific fleet. One of its smaller cruisers and one of its destroyers are in Russia's Black Sea fleet. Three of its destroyers are in Russia's Baltic fleet.

Several other plausible U.S. naval warfare adversaries such as Iran and North Korea have submarines but no large surface combatants.

Currently, the U.S. has 20 aircraft carriers (11 "super carriers" of 100,000 tons or more, and 9 amphibious assault ships which can carry helicopters, Osprey aircraft, Harrier aircraft or F-35B aircraft of 40,000-45,000 tons), Italy has 2, Japan has 4, France has 4, Australia has 2, Egypt has 2, and Brazil, China, India, Russia, Spain, Thailand and the United Kingdom each have one. In all there are 42 aircraft carriers in active naval service in the world.

Five aircraft carriers (one each from the U.K., China, Russia, India and France in order of size) are between the size of a U.S. super carrier and the smallest U.S. amphibious assault ship ranging from 42,000 to 65,000 tons (and only four of these from the China, Russia, India and France, and the ten U.S. super carriers, allow for something other than a vertical landing). The other eighteen aircraft carriers range from 11,486 tons to 27,100 tons (eleven of which are restricted to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft such as helicopters and the MV-22 Osprey). All twenty-seven carriers under 42,000 tons and two larger aircraft (one from the U.S. at 45,000 tons and one from the U.K. at 65,000 tons) are restricted either to short takeoff vertical landing aircraft such as an F-35B or a Harrier, or to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.

Eleven more carriers (including two that are only VTOL carriers) are undergoing sea trials or ordered: the U.S. 3, China 3, and South Korea, India, Italy and Turkey one each.

Currently, the U.S. has 22 cruisers (10,000 tons each) and Russia has 4 (one battleship with 28,000 tons and three cruisers with 12,500 tons) in active service. In all there are 27 cruisers in active naval service in the world. The U.S. cruisers are virtually indistinguishable from its destroyers and slightly inferior to them as they are older designs.

Currently, the U.S. has 69 destroyers (including 2 of the Zumwalt class), Japan has 44, China has 32, Russia has 15, India has 13, France has 10, the U.K. has 6, Norway has 5Taiwan has 4, the Netherlands has 4Germany has 3, Denmark has 3South Korea has 3Saudi Arabia has 3, Italy has 2, Egypt has 1, Morocco has 1, and Spain has 1. The largest destroyer in active service (other than the two Zumwalt class destroyers in active service) is 10,290 tons and many of which are considerably smaller. Some of the destroyer class ships are larger, more capable ships actually called frigates in an effort to make comparisons comparable. All ships classified as frigates for these purposes are under 5,000 tons, although a few particularly capable frigates between 4,000 and 5,000 tons are classified as destroyers. There are 219 destroyers in all of the world's navies combined.

In all there are 42 aircraft carriers over 11,000 tons and 7 other surface combatants over 11,000 tons in naval service in the world. Of those, 20 aircraft carriers and 2 other surface combatants are in the U.S. Navy and 1 aircraft carrier and 4 other surface combatants (one battleship and three cruisers) are in the Russian Navy. The other navies of the world have 21 aircraft carriers, only 10 of which are more than VTOL helicopter carriers. There are 244 other surface combatants bigger than frigates in the world in active naval service (of which 67 are in the U.S. Navy and 15 are in the Russian Navy).

The Japanese Naval Experience

The case that really brought this home for the Japanese was the sinking of the battleship Yamato.  This 71,000 ton ship with massive 18 inch guns was tough.  It  had previously survived a hit from a torpedo delivered by a U.S. submarine on Christmas Day in 1943, and two bombs that hit it in October of 1944, in the Leyte Gulf.  Two more 36,000 ton Japanese battleships, the Fuso and the Yamashiro, were sunk by naval gunfire and torpedoes in that same October battle.  Bombs damaged the 39,000 ton Japanese battleship Nagato in the battle of the Leyte Gulf badly enough to remove it from action. Ultimately, air power prevailed over the big guns and heavy armor of the pinnacle of the battleship era.  On April 7, 1945, the Yamato was sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft and it took 2,498 Japanese sailors with it.  The 32,000 ton Japanese battleship Ise (already removed from service nine months earlier by a mine), and Japanese battleships Hyunga and Haruna were sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft in July of 1945.

Japan had already lost its 32,000 ton battlecruiser Kirishima to 16” naval gunfire from the 47,000 ton American battleship Washington in 1942 in one of the last of the battles that went according traditional naval models of close range ship to ship combat, in this case, at a range of a mile and a half.  The 28,000 ton Japanese battleship Kongo was sunk by a submarine in November of 1944.  Its three sister ships were sunk by U.S. aircraft in World War II.

The American Naval Experience in World War II

Americans remember Pearl Harbor.  Yes, this carrier based air attack was a surprise.  But, a heavily armored hull did not prevent this attack from sinking the 32,000 ton U.S. battleship Arizona and three other battleships.  Four more battleships were seriously damaged, the 29,000 ton American battleship Nevada among them, although the Nevada was ultimately returned to service and survived further battle damage on multiple occasions.  Few naval strategists before Pearl Harbor had realized how vulnerable the fleet was to aerial attack.

The 33,000 ton American battleship Idaho ran aground off Okinawa in June of 1945.  American battleship Pennsylvania,  a sister ship of the Arizona, was taken out of action by enemy aircraft in August of 1945.

The 45,000 ton American battleship Indiana did exhibit the resilience in the face of damage which battleships are legendary for notwithstanding a mixed experience in real life.  It survived both a collision and a hit by a kamakazi pilot in 1944, and serious storm damage in 1945, yet survived until decommissioning in 1963.  The 45,000 ton South Dakota similarly sustained and survived repeated battle damage. The 56,000 ton American battleship Iowa likewise survived serious damage from shore fire sustained in March of 1944, and the 47,000 ton battleship Washington survived a 1942 torpedo hit from a Japanese submarine and a 1945 friendly fire incident.

The German Naval Experience in World War II

Germany’s 51,000 ton battleship the Bismark found its fate at the bottom of the sea in May of 1941.  The British Royal Air Force damaged the 40,000 ton German battleship Gneisenau to the point that it never again was useable as a battleship in 1942.  Sister German battleship Scharnhorst, however, survived in the face of a seemingly never ending barrage of hits sustained.

The Italian and Vichy French Naval Experiences in World War II

Both Italy and Vichy France both saw battleships destroyed in port before they were ever launched.  

The planned 48,000 ton battleship Clemenceau was destroyed in its French port during a bombing raid in August 1944.  The 36,000 ton battleship Dunkerque, in the hands of the Vichy French, was damaged sufficiently to be taken out of action, and lost one in seven of its crew members, in July of 1940, by a combination of British warship attacks and torpedoes in two separate incidents.

The 30,000 ton Italian battleship Duilio wasn’t actually sunk, but a British bombing raid in November of 1940 took it out of service for about a year, and the ship served only a brief secondary role in World War II thereafter.  The 46,000 ton battleship Vittorio Veneto was taken out of action by British aircraft in 1941, then by a submarine, and then 1943 by another aircraft.  The 47,000 ton Italian battleship Littorio was taken out of commission by British aircraft by June of 1942.

The Spanish Naval Experience in World War II

The 16,000 ton battleship Espana was sunk by a “friendly” mine in July of 1937 during the Spanish civil war, killing a third of the sailors on board.

The British Naval Experience in World Wars I and II.

While it predates World War II, it is worth recalling that the 22,000 ton British battleship Dreadnought (the second of that name launched in 1906) which became synonymous with the very notion of a battleship, sank only one enemy vessel, a German submarine, in all of World War I.  It achieved this end not with its ten 12” guns, but with a methodology as old as Greek naval warfare.  It rammed it.

German dive bombing planes took the 30,000 ton British battleship Iron Duke out of service on October 17, 1939.  It Italian airplane’s torpedo took the 38,000 ton British battleship Nelson out of service for a year on September 27, 1941.  The British lost the 42,000 ton battleship Prince of Wales in December of 1941 to an attack by Japanese aircraft, after having suffered serious damage from naval guns, which was repaired, earlier that same year.  The 33,000 ton British battleship Queen Elizabeth was removed from service when an Italian frogman bombed it while it was in harbor that same month.

Momentos Land Rover en 70 años de historia

 Cache   

Un breve recorrido por siete décadas de rica trayectoria.

 

Este famoso campero fue creado por la Rover, una empresa que nacida en 1878 en Coventry Inglaterra y cuyo primer producto fueron las bicicletas Starley & Sutton (primera razón social de la compañía). De estos sencillos vehículos pasó a producir motocicletas (lo hizo hasta 1926) y triciclos con motor eléctrico en 1903, iniciando en 1904 la incursión en el naciente mundo del automóvil, desarrollando posteriormente pequeños automóviles que movilizaban a grandes masas de británicos en su país de origen y en sus colonias.

Por: Roberto Nigrinis y Oficina de Prensa Land Rover Jaguar Colombia

Prototipo con volante central

Después de terminada la Segunda Guerra Mundial la empresa se encontraba arrasada, por lo cual sus directivos decidieron trasladarse a Solihull Warwickshire ya que resultaba más económico construir una nueva factoría que intentar reconstruir la que había sido arrasada por la aviación alemana (Luftwaffe).

Por esos días el victorioso Jeep dejaba los campos de batalla y se dedicaba a trabajar en sus labores diarias al lado de los granjeros, servicios postales, cuadrillas de trabajadores ferroviarios y de servicios públicos y un sin fin de labores tanto dentro como fuera de los caminos.

Este vehículo contaba con una carrocería fabricada enteramente en aluminio y creada por Birmabright, debido a que el acero estaba bastante escaso y a que la compañía contaba con gran experiencia en la industria aeronáutica adquirida durante la guerra cuando fabricó partes para los aviones de la RAF (Royal Air Force). El metal ligero tenía como ventajas principales el bajo peso y la resistencia  a la corrosión, pero como inconveniente presentaba la dificultad de reparación y la poca disponibilidad de mano de obra calificada para su reparación.

Prototipo con volante central

El modelo prototipo presentado, tenía como particularidad el puesto de conducción en el centro, algo impráctico, por lo cual posteriormente fue movido al lado derecho o izquierdo, dependiendo de si el vehículo estaba destinado al mercado británico, de sus colonias o a países de la mancomunidad británica, o a lugares donde se conduce por la derecha como sucede en la gran mayoría del planeta.

Prototipo con volante central

 

El primer Land Rover usaba un motor de cuatro cilindros de 1.595 c.c que producía 50 HP y tracción 4 x 4 permanente con dispositivo de rueda libre para el eje delantero y bajo y una distancia entre ejes de 80 pulgadas (2,02 m), este propulsor provenía de los automóviles de la marca. En 1950 el motor fue reemplazado por uno de 2.000 c.c, también de cuatro cilindros, el cual produce 52 HP y un mayor torque que el anterior. Tres años después se presenta una versión con chasis largo de 107 pulgadas de distancia entre ejes (2,71), que acompaña al de 86 pulgadas (2,17 m).

El resto de la propuesta tecnológica, la complementan ejes rígidos tanto adelante como atrás con ballestas. Además de frenos hidráulicos con campanas en las cuatro ruedas de 16 pulgadas de diámetro.

“The Chinese notion of brinksmanship is central” — Christopher Sharman @HooverInst

Christopher Sharman, Captain, USN, & Hoover National Security Affairs Fellow (“This is an active Captain in the US Seventh Fleet — same as Magnum.”)  @HooverInst Dining with a high Japanese official in Tokyo: “When the US is weak, China doesn't respect the US or Japan; when the US is strong, China respects the US and us [Japan].” The Chinese notion of brinksmanship is central.  South China Sea, “the Great Wall of Sand,” where China has built fictitious islands out of sand and dumped soil and garbage to create seven features, not islands. China now has installed missiles there, all entirely illegally under international law. The US Navy will go anywhere international law allows; we’ll challenge according the Freedom of Navigation under Law of the Sea.  The constant going and coming of DPRK and China: the USN is the front line out there. Does the Navy have all that it needs in the coming decade or two? We’re in an era of Great Power competition. We’ve called out China and other bad actors, such as North Korea. This is where partnerships come in: they’re critical enablers to anything we do in the region. US is building partnerships with countries like Vietnam; all will help us in the future.

ПОЧИТАНИЕ ЖЕНЩИНЫ...

 Cache   

На небольшой территории коренных народов Гуна Яла у восточного побережья Панамы процветающее сообщество «третьего пола» бросает вызов стереотипам и почитает женщин.

Скользя на паруснике по спокойным водам Карибского моря, появляется ощущение, что прибываешь в рай. Крошечные островки сверкающего белого песка, покрытые пальмами и зелеными кокосами, разбросанными по бирюзовым прибрежным водам, выглядят слишком совершенными, чтобы быть реальными.

Это Гуна Яла, также известный как Сан-Блас — архипелаг у восточного побережья Панамы, содержащий более 300 островов, 49 из которых населены коренными жителями, известными как гуны (куны). Их более 50 000 человек.

Куны до сих пор живут так, как жили их предки, обитая в маленьких деревянных хижинах, покрытых пальмовыми листьями, с тлеющими бревнами в каминах и гамаками, представляющими единственную мебель.

Гуна Яла необычна во многих отношениях: это автономная территория коренных народов, а на ее флаге изображена черная левосторонняя свастика, которая, как говорят, представляет четыре направления и сотворение мира. Но, пожалуй, самая любопытная традиция в Гуна Яла — это ее естественное гендерное равенство и полная терпимость.

В обществе, где женщины являются основными поставщиками продовольствия, владельцами собственности и лицами, принимающими решения, мальчики могут стать «третьим полом», где они действуют и работают как другие женщины в обществе.

Этот «третий пол» — совершенно нормальное явление на островах. Если мальчик начинает проявлять тенденцию к действию «женщины», семья, естественно, принимает это. Очень часто они изучают навык, который обычно ассоциируется с женщинами, например, большинство из них, становятся мастерами по созданию самых замысловатых мол.

Мола или Молас — ручной текстиль, который является частью традиционной женской одежды народа куны из Панамы. До прибытия европейцев куны носили мало одежды и украшали свои тела красочными узорами. Впоследствии они перенесли эти узоры на ткань. Женщины Гуна Яла гордятся тем, что являются единственными людьми в мире, которые делают молы.

На самом деле, пребывание в Гуна Яла «третьего пола» связано с мифологией. Существуют разные истории о первоначальных лидерах, принесших традиции, правила и руководящие принципы, которыми должны жить куны.

Прогуливаясь по улицам на острове Carti Sugdupu, одном из самых больших сообществ в районе Гуна Яла, в большинстве встречаются женщины. Одетые в красиво вышитую традиционную одежду, они работают над своими поделками, присматривают за небольшими магазинами и продают еду и напитки.

В отличие от многих других стран Центральной Америки, женщины куны кажутся более общительными: завести разговор здесь гораздо проще, чем на улицах гватемальских или никарагуанских деревень.

По иронии судьбы наибольшее количество альбиносов на планете проживает на материке Гуна-Яла, где солнце светит круглый год. Население насчитывает около 80 тыс. человек, сотни из которых заболевают альбинизмом. Неслучайно еще в 1900-х годах племя куна стали называть «белыми индейцами»: один из 150 новорожденных был альбиносом.

Женщины Гуна Яла имеют повышенный статус. Традиционная свадьба включает в себя церемониальное похищение жениха, а не невесты, и когда молодой человек женится, он переезжает в дом невесты.

С этого момента его работа принадлежит семье жены, и именно женщина решает, может ли ее муж делиться своей рыбой, кокосами или бананами со своими родителями или братьями и сестрами.

Даже празднования здесь проводятся в честь женщин. Три самых важных праздника на островах Гунна Яла — это рождение девочки, половая зрелость и брак. Хотя мужчины традиционно становятся рыбаками, охотниками, фермерами или вождями, женская работа считается иногда более важной.

С ростом туризма куны стали зарабатывать деньги из других источников, кроме своих исконных ремесел по сбору кокосов, добыче омаров, рыбалки и сельского хозяйства.

Женщины-куны могут получать существенный доход, продавая причудливо вышитые молы и вини (красочные браслеты из стеклянных бусин). Например, одна мола может быть продана за 30-50 долларов, тогда как мужчина будет зарабатывать только 20 долларов за целый день, потраченный на чистку чей-то яхты.

Однако нельзя сказать, что здесь царит матриархат. Хотя женщины и принимают все внутренние решения, они редко бывают политиками или вождями.

В то время как женщины играют определенную роль в обществе, люди «третьего пола» — нет. Многие из них покидают Гуна Яла, отправляясь в Панаму в поисках образования или карьерных возможностей.

Молодые omeggid, которые остаются, носят длинные волосы, учатся рукоделию у своих матерей, а пожилые ходят в платках, продают молы или выступают в роли гидов и переводчиков для туристов. Внутри сообщества с ними обращаются как с равными членами семей.

Гуна Яла кажется удивительно альтернативным миром мира, терпимости и понимания в этом небольшом сообществе островов в Карибском море.

Correa se mofa de que se le persigue más que a Al Capone, Pinochet y al Chapo

 Cache   

(Corrige en tercer párrafo estatus de Rafael Correa en Bélgica. No es refugiado)

México, 6 nov (EFE).- El expresidente ecuatoriano Rafael Correa (2007-2017) denunció este miércoles una operación judicial contra los exlíderes progresistas latinoamericanos y bromeó con que a él se le persigue más que al mafioso Al Capone, al dictador Augusto Pinochet y al narcotraficante Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán.

'Tengo 29 juicios penales, más que Al Capone, Pinochet y el Chapo Guzmán juntos. Han buscado mis cuentas bancarias, mis movimientos financieros y migratorios (...) y no han encontrado absolutamente nada y jamás lo encontrarán porque sencillamente no existe', dijo Correa durante una conferencia magistral en Ciudad de México.

El expresidente Correa, que reside actualmente en Bélgica y que gracias a ello ha logrado evadir otras causas de supuesta corrupción, defendió que su Gobierno luchó contra la corrupción y criticó el encarcelamiento del que fuera su vicepresidente Jorge Glas, condenado a seis años por aceptar sobornos de Odebrecht, pues dijo que 'no hay ninguna prueba en su contra'.

Correa aseguró que se trata de una persecución del presidente de Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, a quien tachó de 'traidor' por querer 'destruir' su legado y 'vender el país' al Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI).

Y aprovechando su presencia en México, Correa agradeció al país latinoamericano por haber refugiado en su embajada en Quito a siete correístas acusados de 'rebelión'.

'México es de los pocos países que han mostrado su presencia', aplaudió el exmandatario ecuatoriano.

Además, acusó a Lenín Moreno de tener una cuenta bancaria en Panamá saltándose la ley que prohíbe a funcionarios públicos tener dinero en paraísos fiscales.

PERSECUCIÓN A LÍDERES IZQUIERDISTAS

Correa atribuyó su persecución judicial, y la de otros líderes latinoamericanos progresistas, a que 'los eternos poderes que siempre dominaron en Latinoamérica y la sumieron en el atraso y la desigualdad regresaron con sed de venganza' tras una década de gobiernos de izquierdas.

Para el exmandatario ecuatoriano, las investigaciones por corrupción se han utilizado como 'una eficaz herramienta para destruir a procesos nacionalpopulares' como el de Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva en Brasil o el de Cristina Fernández en Argentina.

De acuerdo con Correa, se trata de un proceso coordinado que se inicia con 'una acusación de poco impacto y sin sustento' seguida de un 'bombardeo mediático' que presiona a los jueces para dictar sentencias condenatorias.

Correa no negó que no hubiera corrupción en el interior de los gobiernos progresistas latinoamericanos pero reivindicó que siempre se persiguió: 'Un Gobierno honesto no es el que nunca tuvo casos de corrupción sino el que nunca los toleró'.

Tras los últimos años en los que los gobiernos de la región viraron hacia la derecha, Correa celebró que la elección en 2018 de Andrés Manuel López Obrador en México fue una 'esperanza' por la izquierda latinoamericana.

'Lo que pasó en México fue una importante referencia y un ejemplo (...) Los pueblos ven el camino que han empezado a recorrer otros países y siguen este camino hacia la liberación, la independencia y la justicia', dijo Correa, quien aplaudió que México 'esté mirando hacia el Sur de nuevo'.

En ese camino, dijo, se sumó el 27 de octubre Argentina con la 'contundente victoria' del peronista Alberto Fernández, quien este martes también estuvo en México, donde denunció la 'persecución' judicial contra Correa, Lula y Cristina. EFE

Estudiantes exigen proceso 'incluyente' de reforma constitucional en Panamá

 Cache   

(Actualiza con realización de manifestación frente al Parlamento)

Panamá, 6 nov (EFE).- Una coalición de estudiantes universitarios de Panamá dijo este miércoles que seguirán protestando pacíficamente hasta lograr que se frene la discusión en el Parlamento de una propuesta de reforma constitucional que consideran 'insuficiente', y se convoque a la ciudadanía a un amplio e incluyente proceso de consultas.

'Expresamos nuestro desacuerdo con el paquete de reformas constitucionales y condenamos la manera antidemocrática en que la Asamblea Nacional ha llevado el proceso', dijo la liga 'Juventudes Panameñas', constituida a raíz de la problemática suscitada por las reformas constitucionales.

Cualquier cambio, añadió la coalición, 'no puede ser producto de una discusión a tambor batiente, si no de un gran consenso nacional que incluya a todos los sectores de la sociedad panameña, sin dejar a nadie por fuera'.

Desde finales de octubre pasado estudiantes universitarios y grupos sociales han salido a las calles para expresar su rechazo tanto a la forma cómo se discute en el Parlamento unicameral, de amplia mayoría oficialista, la propuesta de reforma constitucional impulsada por el Gobierno del presidente Laurentino Cortizo, como al contenido de la misma.

Casi un centenar de personas fueron detenidas en el marco de las protestas registradas el 30 y 31 de octubre pasado, muchos enfrentan desde este miércoles un proceso ante un juez comunitario de paz, en lo que ha sido tildado por los estudiantes como abuso policial.

'Nosotros vamos a seguir manifestándonos de manera pacífica, de diferentes maneras, no solamente en las protestas que se han dado, sino también manifestaciones culturales', declaró en una rueda de prensa José Luis Paniza, presidente de la Asociación de Estudiantes de la Universidad Santa María La Antigua (USMA-privada).

Grupos de estudiantes protestaron pacíficamente al final de esta tarde frente a la sede del Parlamento, y se espera que mañana se reúnan con el presidente de ese órgano, el oficialista Marco Castillero, y otros diputados.

Además, una veintena de estudiantes se reunieron con el presidente Cortizo, quien les reiteró su voluntad de promover la participación de todos los sectores en la discusión de la reforma.

Paniza afirmó que las protestas pretenden que la discusión de las reformas constitucionales en la Asamblea Nacional 'se detenga, y se abra un proceso en el que se escuche no solo a algunos sectores sino a los sectores que hemos estado manifestándonos y que somos los que hemos puestos los detenidos'.

La estudiante de derecho de la Universidad de Panamá (UP-pública) Ivenshka Gálvez destacó que las protestas seguirán porque las reformas son 'inconsultas e impopulares' y 'solo responden a intereses económicos'.

Gálvez expresó que además existe desconfianza hacia varios de los diputados del Parlamento que están señalados por supuesta corrupción y por casos de presuntos abusos sexuales.

Los estudiantes también cuestionaron la forma 'prepotente' de expresarse del presidente Cortizo, y 'por no escuchar al pueblo panameño' en el tema de la reforma.

Ante las protestas Cortizo ha defendido la propuesta de cambios constitucionales con el argumento de que fue redactada por la Concertación Nacional, un ente creado hace más de una década y conformado por 23 sectores del país, y ha acusado que dentro del Parlamento hay grupos que 'no quieren cambios'.

'La Concertación Nacional hoy por hoy lastimosamente no representa a todos los sectores', opinó el universitario Paniza.

La propuesta presentada por el Gobierno modifica artículos relacionados con la administración de justicia, salud, la educación, el medioambiente, la descentralización y el funcionamiento del Parlamento.

El jueves pasado en una inusual rueda de prensa el gobernante afirmó que su propuesta de reforma 'no es perfecta', pero es 'la más práctica' pues sirve para 'dar más balance a la institucionalidad' de Panamá.

El 'único y verdadero dueño' de las reformas constitucionales es el 'pueblo panameño', ha agregado el presidente, y ha mostrado su interés en que se instalen mesas nacionales de consulta antes de que la propuesta vuelva a ser debatida en una segunda legislatura por el Parlamento.

Las reformas constitucionales fueron aprobadas a finales de octubre en una primera legislatura, serán sometidas a unos debates en la que comenzará en enero próximo, y luego deberán ser llevadas a referendo popular, lo que Cortizo aspira ocurra en 2020

Se espera que esta semana un grupo de juristas presente a Cortizo un informe de lo aprobado en la primera legislatura que servirá de base para que el presidente panameño pida al Parlamento que elimine algunas de las iniciativas introducidas por los diputados y que sido rechazas de forma general.

Las protestas comenzaron cuando al paquete de reformas presentado por el Gobierno se sumaron iniciativas que afectaban a las universidades públicas, a los contenidos de los medios tradicionales y redes sociales, al matrimonio, e incluso amplían los poderes del Legislativo. EFE


          

Panamá pierde a Aníbal Godoy por desgarro para partido ante México

 Cache   

Panamá, 6 nov (EFE).- El centrocampista panameño Aníbal Godoy no estará en el partido del próximo 15 de noviembre ante México por la Liga de Naciones de Concacaf por un desgarro en su muslo izquierdo, informó este miércoles la Federación Panameña de Fútbol (Fepafut).

De acuerdo con el diagnóstico del médico del seleccionado panameño, Erick Villarreal, 'se observa zona de desgarro muscular en el tercio superior del recto femoral'.

Las molestias de Godoy, jugador del Nashville SC del fútbol de la MLS, se presentaron el martes pasado, en el segundo día de microciclos que lleva el técnico de la selección panameña Américo Rubén 'Tolo' Gallego.

'Godoy presentó dolor en su muslo izquierdo en la parte final del entrenamiento del martes y esta mañana (hoy miércoles) se procedió a realizarle un sonograma por parte del doctor Érick Villarreal', , matizó la nota de la Fepafut.

El jefe médico de la FEPAFUT, Gerinaldo Martínez, informó al técnico Gallego una vez se conoció el diagnóstico y, ante la patología presentada por el jugador, se decidió que no podrá jugar el partido ante los mexicanos que tendrá lugar el 15 de noviembre próximo en el estadio Rommel Fernández de la capital panameña.

Debido a una lesión, Godoy no estuvo frente a Bermudas en las dos primeras fecha de Liga Naciones y tampoco jugó con el equipo panameño en la Copa Oro pasada.

En ese entonces, Godoy fue diagnosticado por una pubalgia que le impidió jugar el torneo de selecciones.

Ante la salida de Godoy, un centrocampista de contención, Gallego aún no ha informado aún de un sustituto.

A la baja de Godoy se suma la del arquero Luis Mejía, quien pidió ser liberado para este juego, debido a que su club enfrentará en el torneo Clausura del fútbol uruguayo, entre otros, un partido ante Peñarol en el clásico del balompié del país suramericano.

El combinado panameño retomará los entrenamientos de cara al duelo contra el cuadro mexicano el lunes próximo, en horario vespertino. EFE

Fiscales iberoamericanos ante los desafíos en la lucha contra el narcotráfico

 Cache   

Asunción, 6 nov (EFE).- La unidad de los Ministerios Públicos y el empleo de tecnología de la comunicación fueron citados como ejes de la lucha contra el narcotráfico durante la 27 Asamblea General Ordinaria de la Asociación Iberoamericana de Ministerio Público (AIAMP), que dio comienzo este miércoles en Asunción,

Las entregas vigiladas y las operaciones trasnacionales son otras de las estrategias tratadas hasta el viernes en la Asamblea, que reúne representantes de 16 países.

El fiscal antidrogas de Paraguay, Marcelo Pecci, señaló a Efe que el empleo de la tecnología en las comunicaciones 'ya es un deber en el contexto de la lucha trasnacional', por lo que su éxito dependerá de 'la fortaleza unificada de los ministerios públicos de los países de la región'.

'Estamos avanzando, fortaleciéndonos, sobre todo con transmisión espontánea de información en los puntos de impacto de los países', indicó Pecci, panelista en la reunión anual de la Red de Fiscales Antidrogas Iberoamericanos, que se celebra en forma paralela a la Asamblea.

El fiscal paraguayo sostuvo que durante el encuentro se intercambiará experiencia e información sobre el protocolo de agentes encubiertos y de entregas vigiladas 'a los efectos de perfeccionarlos', al igual que la cooperación trasnacional contra el narcotráfico.

Por su parte, la fiscal general de Paraguay, Sandra Quiñónez, consideró como 'eje transversal' a la labor de los fiscales 'la innovación estratégica y actualización constante de conocimientos y el intercambio de prácticas relativas a técnicas especiales de investigación'.

'Vivimos en una era donde el posicionamiento de los grupos organizados de la narcocriminalidad es cada vez más desafiante', expresó Quiñonez en la apertura del evento, que se celebra en un hotel de la capital paraguaya.

En la asamblea se llevan a cabo de forma paralela seminarios y ponencias sobre otros temas vinculados al ámbito de las fiscalías como la lucha contra la violencia de género.

En este tema, la fiscal española Pilar Martín Nájera disertó hoy sobre 'La perspectiva de Género. El camino hacia una justicia libre de estereotipos', previo a un panel debate en torno al 'Acceso a la justicia de las mujeres víctimas de violencia en el ámbito público y privado'.

La cita de Asunción congrega a representantes de Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, España, Guatemala, México, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Portugal, República Dominicana y Uruguay. EFE


          

El Salvador admite solicitud para la compra de Telefónica por América Móvil

 Cache   

San Salvador, 6 nov (EFE).- La Superintendencia de Competencia (SC) de El Salvador admitió a trámite la solicitud de autorización de concentración económica presentada por la empresa de telecomunicaciones América Móvil, controlada por el magnate mexicano Carlos Slim, para la compra de la filial de Telefónica en el país, informó este miércoles la entidad estatal.

La SC indicó que, con lo anterior, se inicia 'el análisis técnico, económico y jurídico que determinará si la transacción provocará o no una limitación significativa de la competencia'.

Indicó que la solicitud fue presentada por América Móvil y Telefónica de El Salvador el 19 de septiembre del año en curso, fecha en que la entidad estatal comenzó con una evaluación para 'valorar la admisibilidad de la solicitud o la necesidad de completar la información del expediente'.

La fuente señaló que el Consejo Directivo de la institución 'resolverá, según los resultados del análisis, si esta concentración se autoriza, se niega o se condiciona'.

La Superintendencia de Competencia de El Salvador rechazó en dos ocasiones la solicitud de autorización de concentración económica a América Móvil.

La entidad estatal salvadoreña rechazó por primera vez la concentración económica a finales de abril pasado a raíz de que América Móvil no completó la documentación requerida. Y la segunda vez fue en septiembre por la misma razón.

La operadora de telecomunicaciones Telefónica anunció en enero pasado la venta de sus filiales en Guatemala y El Salvador a su competidora América Móvil.

Telefónica informó el 24 de enero pasado a la Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (CNMV) de España que el importe conjunto de la transacción ha ascendido a 648 millones de dólares, incluida la deuda.

De igual forma, la multinacional española alcanzó un acuerdo con Millicom International Cellular, S.A. para la venta de sus filiales de Costa Rica, Panamá y Nicaragua, informó Telefónica el 20 de febrero pasado. EFE


          

Baja presencia de negocios de EEUU en feria cubana

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Organizaciones colombianas promueven huelga nacional el 21 de noviembre

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

RAZONES DE LA HUELGA

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

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

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

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

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

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

TOMA DE LAS CALLES

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

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

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

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

NI CUBA NI VENEZUELA

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

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

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

LOS MAESTROS

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

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


          

El presidente de la federación boliviana aboga por no suspender el campeonato

 Cache   

La Paz, 6 nov (EFE).- El presidente de la Federación Boliviana de Fútbol (FBF), César Salinas, planteó este miércoles alargar hasta Año Nuevo el torneo Clausura, que lleva cinco fechas suspendidas por la crisis en Bolivia.

Salinas afirmó que la próxima semana se espera una reunión del Consejo Superior de la División Profesional de Fútbol Boliviano para analizar la situación.

La última jornada se disputó justo antes de las elecciones del 20 de octubre, tras la que se desencadenó una crisis política y social en Bolivia que llevó a suspender cinco fechas seguidas del torneo.

'No es no más decir: suspendamos. Nos vamos a ganar una serie de problemas y, por lo tanto, para llegar a una decisión consensuada con los catorce clubes hay que analizar varios aspectos, conversar con mucha calma, sin apresurarnos para nada, buscando que se siga con el campeonato', declaró.

Salinas planteó 'tratar de comprimirlo (el torneo) lo más que se pueda para llegar jugando, con el último partido, hasta Año Nuevo'.

Afirmó que la Conmebol advirtió que sería una 'locura' si la FBF decidiera suspender el campeonato.

Una de las opciones puede ser aprovechar la cancelación de amistosos previstos por Bolivia en Chile y en Panamá para reprogramar jornadas del torneo local para que el campeonato acabe entre Navidad y Año Nuevo'.

'Prefiero decirle a la afición deportiva que la mejor decisión se tomará la próxima semana, ahí veremos qué sucede', añadió.

Ya van cinco fechas que se suspenden de forma consecutiva en Bolivia, cuyo torneo estaba programado inicialmente en 26 jornadas hasta el próximo 11 de diciembre.

Los amistosos de la selección boliviana previstos el 15 y 19 de noviembre con la chilena y la panameña, respectivamente, fueron suspendidos por la convulsión social que atraviesan Bolivia y Chile.

Bolivia vive días de tensión después de las elecciones generales del pasado 20 de octubre, con huelgas ciudadanas y bloqueos callejeros pues la oposición y movimientos cívicos denuncian fraude en los comicios que dieron la victoria al presidente Evo Morales. EFE


          

SIP lamenta recomendación de la Corte Suprema de Honduras sobre difamación

 Cache   

Miami, 6 nov (EFE).- La Sociedad Interamericana de Prensa (SIP) expresó preocupación por una recomendación no vinculante de la Corte Suprema de Justicia de Honduras al Congreso Nacional que pide dejar sin efecto una reforma al Código Penal que despenaliza la difamación e hicieron votos para que los legisladores no la acepten.

Los presidentes de la SIP, Christopher Barnes, y de la Comisión de Libertad de Prensa e Información, Roberto Rock, lamentaron en un comunicado que la Corte Suprema de Honduras no haya tenido en cuenta la nueva jurisprudencia de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CorteIDH).

En su fallo reciente, la Corte con sede en San José consideró que 'en el caso de un discurso protegido por su interés público, como son los referidos a conductas de funcionarios públicos en el ejercicio de sus funciones, la respuesta punitiva del Estado mediante el derecho penal no es convencionalmente procedente para proteger el honor del funcionario', recordó la SIP.

La CorteIDH subrayó que 'el uso de la ley penal por difundir noticias de esta naturaleza produciría directa o indirectamente, un amedrentamiento que, en definitiva, limitaría la libertad de expresión e impediría someter al escrutinio público conductas que infrinjan el ordenamiento jurídico, como, por ejemplo, hechos de corrupción, abusos de autoridad, etc...'.

Sin embargo, la Corte Suprema de Honduras ha recomendado al Congreso mantener los delitos de injuria y calumnia en el Código Penal vigente.

Barnes, director general del diario The Gleaner (Jamaica), y Rock, director del portal La Silla Rota (México), agregaron que esperan que el Congreso hondureño no acepte la recomendación de la Corte Suprema, a la que calificaron como 'limitada'.

Los directivos de la entidad con sede en Miami dijeron confiar en que Honduras continúe con la tendencia en otros países de la región hacia la despenalización de la difamación como Argentina, Bermudas, Chile (parcial), El Salvador, Granada, Jamaica, México, Panamá, República Dominicana (parcial) y Uruguay.

Barnes y Rock suscribieron en nombre de la SIP lo que especifica la Declaración de Principios sobre Libertad de Expresión de la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH).

'La protección de la reputación debe estar garantizada sólo a través de sanciones civiles, en los casos en que la persona ofendida sea un funcionario o persona públicos o particular que se haya involucrado voluntariamente en asuntos de interés público'.

La Declaración también hace hincapié en la figura de la 'real malicia' al establecer que 'en estos casos, debe probarse que en la difusión de las noticias el comunicador tuvo intención de infligir daño o pleno conocimiento de que se estaba difundiendo noticias falsas o se condujo con manifiesta negligencia en la búsqueda de la verdad o falsedad de las mismas'.

La SIP es una entidad sin fines de lucro dedicada a la defensa y promoción de la libertad de prensa y de expresión en el continente americano, de la que son socios más de 1.300 publicaciones. EFE


          

Rabat advierte a Panamá que cerrará su embajada si no revisa postura Sáhara

 Cache   

Rabat, 6 nov (EFE).- El Gobierno de Marruecos ha advertido al Gobierno de Panamá de que está dispuesto a cerrar su embajada en Rabat si este país no revisa su postura sobre el conflicto del Sáhara Occidental y suspende su reconocimiento a la República Árabe Saharaui Democrática (RASD).

La advertencia se realizó en sede parlamentaria hasta en dos ocasiones en los últimos días por el ministro de Exteriores marroquí, Naser Burita, según han confirmado a Efe fuentes del Parlamento.

Contactado por Efe, Burita no quiso hacer declaraciones pero fuentes oficiales dijeron a Efe que para Marruecos es importante que los países latinoamericanos mantengan una 'neutralidad positiva' respecto al conflicto del Sáhara que sea afín a la postura de Naciones Unidas; y que en el caso de Panamá esta neutralidad se habría roto.

Al mismo tiempo explicaron que Marruecos en esta evaluación de su relación con Panamá está siguiendo un principio de 'reciprocidad'.

Las fuentes añadieron que Burita fue cuestionado por los parlamentarios sobre la utilidad de los gastos que suponen mantener relaciones diplomáticas con algunos países sin conseguir resultados concretos.

La advertencia del gobierno marroquí se produce cuando está a punto de llegar una nueva embajadora de Panamá a Rabat, la crítica literaria Mariela Sagel, recién nombrada por su gobierno.

En 2014, el gobierno panameño abrió una embajada en Rabat en un acto que fue celebrado en la capital marroquí por todo lo alto y al que asistió el entonces ministro de Exteriores, Salahedin Mezuar.

El restablecimiento de relaciones entre Rabat y Panamá fue después de que el país caribeño suspendiese su reconocimiento de la RASD, una decisión de la que se retractó al año siguiente en 2015 y precisamente pocas horas antes de que el entonces ministro de Exteriores marroquí viajara a Panamá para celebrar la apertura de una embajada marroquí en este país.

Desde entonces en Panamá han convivido dos embajadas, la de Rabat y la de la Rasd.

La actitud del gobierno panameño en julio pasado cuando invitó al presidente de la RASD, Ibrahim Ghali, para asistir a la ceremonia de investidura del presidente Laurentino Cortizo, fue duramente criticada por los medios marroquíes. EFE


          

Parla Alexander Tschugguel, il difensore del Primo Comandamento

 Cache   
Gli amici di Campari & de Maistre hanno intervistato Alexander Tschugguel, l'ormai notissimo protagonista dell'ugualmente notissimo "bagno delle pachamana". Siamo lieti di riprendere quasi in tempo reale l'intervista, che ci consente di conoscere ed apprezzare un giovane cui in molti guardiamo con sincera e crescente ammirazione, e che oggi ci ricorda che «ci sono molte possibilità di lottare».

ER

In tutto il mondo si chiedono: chi sei? Da dove arrivi? Perché eri a Roma il mese scorso? 
Sono un ventiseienne di Vienna.
Sin dalla mia conversione, quando avevo 15 anni, sono stato molto interessato riguardo ciò che accade nella Chiesa. Quindi ho seguito abbastanza bene le vicende attorno al Sinodo Panamazzonico e mi sono recato a Roma all’inizio del sinodo, per seguire alcune conferenze. Nel frattempo ho avuto la possibilità di visitare Santa Maria in Traspontina e ho parlato con i volontari che erano li. Mi hanno dato molte informazioni sul sinodo e su quella statuetta. Mi hanno detto che simboleggia “la Madre Terra”. 

Perché hai deciso di buttare gli idoli pachamama nel Tevere? 
Per me è stato pefettamente chiaro che quell’idolo pagano, simboleggiante “la Madre Terra”, non era al suo posto in una chiesa cattolica. Quindi sono tornato due settimane dopo e le ho portate via. Le ho buttate nel Tevere perché mi sembrava il modo migliore di disfarsene. Non volevo tornassero in chiesa. E’ stato un grande successo! Anche se qualcuno dice che sono state ritrovate, non sono state usate alla fine del Sinodo. 

Ti definisci un cattolico tradizionalista? 
Si. 

Di solito le persone non possono compiere azioni così dirompenti, come hai fatto tu. Cosa possono fare i cattolici oggi per testimoniare la loro fede? 
Le persone non devono fare cose come questa! Ci sono molte possibilità di lottare. Ad esempio, iniziare ad essere attivi nel gruppo pro life più vicino. Unirsi ad una associazione pro famiglia. Aiutare la chiesa tradizionale più vicina. E parlare! Parlare con parenti e amici della fede. Iniziare ad essere missionari. Pregare il rosario tutti i giorni. La lista potrebbe continuare! Insomma, bisogna essere cattolici senza avere paura di ciò che pensa il mondo al riguardo. Inoltre, bisogna chiedere aiuto alla Nostra Signora.

Sei preoccupato per le conseguenze legali della tua azione? Sembra che sia stata segnalata alle autorità. 
Vedremo. Appena saprò che cosneguenze mi aspettano, terrò tutti informati. Ma non ho paura. 

Ultima cosa. Lo rifaresti? 
Certo, ma spero che non sia più necessario.

Lateinamerika | Zyklen eines Zyklons

 Cache   
Nirgends sonst ist mehr Verlass auf die Fluktuation der Regime – und darauf, dass sich die Linke ihren Gegnern leichtfertig ausliefert
Zyklen eines Zyklons

Dass Regierungen im Sog des Aufruhrs untergehen, ist für diesen Kontinent kein seltenes Phänomen, wie im Augenblick zu ersehen. In Ecuador lassen indigene Gemeinschaften nicht zu, dass Kostgängerei beim IWF auf ihre Kosten stattfindet. In Chile wird soziales Unrecht nicht länger als Missstand beklagt, sondern als Misshandlung empfunden, die Widerstand verdient, wie das auch für die Attitüden eines wirklichkeitsfremden Präsidenten gilt. Die Argentinier haben es satt – zum wievielten Mal? –, in den Mahlstrom eines Staatsbankrotts zu geraten, und wählen mit Mauricio Macri nicht nur ihren Staatschef, sondern auch dessen neoliberalen Furor ab. Bolivien bebt wegen einer Präsidentenwahl, die ein Indiz dafür sein kann, dass ein linker Amtsinhaber wie Evo Morales die Grenzen seiner selbst nicht wahrhaben will.

Zeigt sich erneut, was der chilenische Dichter Pablo Neruda im Canto General als unvergängliche Würde Lateinamerikas begreift? Er schreibt: Wenn der Baum wächst, wird es ein Baum des Sturmwinds sein. „Des Volkes Baum. Seine Helden gehen aus der Erde hervor wie aus dem Saft die Blätter.“ Und sorgen dafür, ließe sich anfügen, dass diesen Erdteil zuverlässig die Wellen des Wandels tragen – dass despotische wie demokratische Regierungen fallen, revolutionärer Aufbruch zum Vorspiel reaktionärer Restauration wird, Keynesianismus und Austerität wechseln, auf nichts mehr Verlass ist als auf die Fluktuation der Regime. Auf den Linksschwenk in den 1970ern mit dem Referenzprojekt Unidad Popular in Chile folgen teils faschistoide Diktaturen in Argentinien, Uruguay, Bolivien – nach dem Putsch gegen den sozialistischen Präsidenten Allende 1973 extrem brutal in Chile. In Brasilien und Paraguay haben seinerzeit rechte Autokratien schon länger Bestand. Sie alle erfahren von der Endlichkeit ihres Daseins, als ab Mitte der 1980er eine demokratische Wende die Rückkehr zu Pluralität und Verfassungstreue erlaubt. Freilich ändert sich mit der politischen Ordnung kaum je das wirtschaftlichen System. Allein in Venezuela deutet sich Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts die Ausnahme an, mit Hugo Chávez und seinem Sozialismus des 21. Jahrhunderts. Selbst wenn sie dieses Tableau nicht übernehmen, schlagen Bolivien mit Evo Morales (ab 2006) und Ecuador mit Rafael Correa (ab 2007) einen ähnlichen Weg ein – auch die ihre kommunistisch-sozialistische Tradition achtende Linke in Uruguay, wo sich die seit 1971 bestehende, oft geschlagene, nie verschwundene Allianz Frente Amplio durchsetzt. Sie gönnt sich und dem Land mit José Mujica ab 2010 einen früheren Guerillero als Präsidenten, der jeden Tag seine Finca mit einem alten VW verlässt, um ins Präsidentenbüro nach Montevideo zu fahren. In jener Zeit halten es selbst Argentinien und Brasilien mit dem Umbruch. Der charismatische Gewerkschafter Lula da Silva und der linksperonistische Präsident Néstor Kirchner führen Regierungen, denen die Menschenwürde der Unterschichten nicht gleichgültig ist.

Prompt holt das oligarchische Establishment zum Gegenschlag aus. Nicht schuldlos werden Spitzenpolitiker der brasilianischen Arbeiterpartei (PT) kriminalisiert, um durch moralisierende Ächtung ihren Absturz zu beschleunigen. In Buenos Aires schämen sich Cristina Fernández de Kirchners Linksperonisten der statokratischen Veranlagung nicht und überfordern den Staat in gleicher Weise, nur zu einem anderen Zweck als zuletzt Präsident Macri. Ob in diesem Fall, in Venezuela, Bolivien, Ecuador – Lateinamerikas Linke ist geübt darin, sich ihren Gegnern auszuliefern. Sie wirkt wie der Wind, der eine wogende Menge vor sich hertreibt, statt sie für alle Zeit zu sammeln und zu gewinnen.

Chiles Staatschef Sebastián Piñera (im Amt seit 2018) hat offenbar das Gespür für die Lage von Millionen Landsleuten verloren. Die fühlen sich von steigenden Lebenshaltungskosten an den Rand des Existenzminimums gedrängt und sind Opfer eines Privatisierungswahns, der bis zum Renten- und Gesundheitssystem reicht. Als steigende U-Bahn-Preise zu Massenprotest gegen sozialen Kahlschlag führen, redet Piñera von „gut organisierten Feinden“, gegen die er in den „Krieg“ ziehe. Nun soll sich sein Kabinett für ihn opfern.

Argentiniens Präsident Mauricio Macri (im Amt seit 2015) hat es mit seiner Regierung in vier Jahren fertiggebracht, die Wirtschaft Richtung Staatsbankrott zu manövrieren. Das gewohnte neoliberale Muster: auf Ex- und Importsteuern verzichten, den Markt öffnen, in Steueroasen geparktes argentinisches Kapital legalisieren – und davon dann doch nichts haben. Macris versprochene „Investitionsflut“ blieb aus. Bei der Präsidentenwahl am 27. Oktober hat er wie erwartet klar gegen den Peronisten Alberto Fernández verloren.

Boliviens Staatschef Evo Morales (im Amt seit 2006) hat viel für die Rechte der indigenen Gemeinschaft seines Landes getan und deren Lebensstandard angehoben. In letzter Zeit jedoch wird Morales immer mehr als Anwalt der Koka-Bauern gesehen, der indigene Interessen verrate. Zudem war seine Kandidatur für die nunmehr vierte Präsidentschaft umstritten. Umgehend zweifelt die Opposition seinen nach dem Votum vom 20. Oktober verkündeten Wahlsieg an. Es gibt Unruhen, die auch soziale Spannungen reflektieren.

Muster-Linker

Foto: AFP/Getty Images

Uruguays linker Präsident Tabaré Vázquez (seit 2015) regiert noch bis März 2020. Seine Linksallianz Frente Amplio (FA) kommt mit ihrem Präsidentenbewerber Daniel Martínez am 27. Oktober nicht auf die nötige Mehrheit und muss in die Stichwahl. Nicht zu seinem Nachteil wird das Land seit 15 Jahren von Linksregierungen geführt. Das ließ soziale Gräben einebnen. Uruguay hat das höchste Pro-Kopf-Einkommen in Südamerika. Die Frente Amplio ist das Opfer zweier Phänomene: des Verschleißes von Macht und der Last des Erfolgs.

Binnenflüchtling

Ecuadors Präsident Lenín Moreno (seit 2017 im Amt) steht zunächst für sozialreformerische Kontinuität, dann gerät er durch Gerüchte über dubiose Kontakte mit Offshore-Firmen in Panama und Belize heftig unter Druck. Im September entlädt sich auf den Straßen viel Wut über gestrichene Kraftstoff-Subventionen. Der IWF will nur unter dieser Bedingung einen Kredit vergeben. Lenín Moreno – zu lange damit beschäftigt, sich von seinem linken Vorgänger Correa abzugrenzen – muss plötzlich sogar die Hauptstadt Quito verlassen.

Caudillo

Als Brasiliens Präsident Jair Bolsonaro Anfang 2019 antritt, fehlt es nicht an Ansagen: Er wolle das Werk der zwischen 1964 und 1985 autoritär regierenden Obristen „vollenden“. Doch folgt bisher auf die Rhetorik des Caudillo nicht die Rückkehr zur Diktatur. Die Gegensätze in Brasilien sind viel zu brisant, als dass Bolsonaro riskieren wollte, was in Chile losbrach. Allein wie sich indigene Gruppen Rodung und Brandstiftung in der Amazonasregion widersetzen, zeigt, dass Gegenwehr auch Aufstand bedeuten kann.

A New Movie on Padre Pio to be Released in Select Theaters

 Cache   

The Mystery of Padre Pio is more of a documentary, with images, unpublished documents, and surprising revelations on the smear campaign against the Capuchin friar and the spying on his confessional.

In order to produce this movie, the film crew spent several weeks in San Giovanni Rotondo, with full access to the convent’s archives.

Forgionefilms, co-producer of the documentary, and the Catholic distributor Ave Maria Films have signed a contract to show the movie in 16 countries: the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Bolivia; so far the movie has found no one to show it in France…

The Mystery of Padre Pio will be presented simultaneously in Spain, Italy, Mexico and the United States on November 23, 2018.

This is the same day as the International Catholic Film Festival Mirabile Dictu at the Vatican, sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Culture. The movie will also be presented at the International Catholic Film Festival in San Antonio, TX.

A full-length feature film on Padre Pio will come out in theaters on November 23, 2018: The Mystery of Padre Pio is a movie directed by one of the greatest zealots of the devotion to Padre Pio in the Spanish-speaking world, the writer José María Zavala.

World: Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 [EN/AR/ES/FR/ZH]

Global trends and challenges

More than 1 per cent of people across the planet right now are caught up in major humanitarian crises. The international humanitarian system is more effective than ever at meeting their needs – but global trends including poverty, population growth and climate change are leaving more people than ever vulnerable to the devastating impacts of conflicts and disasters.

Humanitarian needs are increasing despite global economic and development gains. In the past decade, the world has made profound development progress. Between 2008 and 2015, the number of people living in extreme poverty fell from 1.2 billion to 736 million. The world is also richer than ever before: global GDP rose from $63.4 trillion in 2008 to $80.7 trillion in 2017.
But in recent years, more than 120 million people each year have needed urgent humanitarian assistance and protection. There are more crises, affecting more people, and lasting longer today than a decade ago. Most humanitarian crises are not the product of any single factor or event, but of the interaction between natural hazards, armed conflict and human vulnerability.

People’s vulnerability to crises is not just about where they live, but also about how they live.
Poverty, inequality, population growth, urbanization and climate change can erode people’s resilience and make them more susceptible to shocks. Although development gains are being made, progress has been uneven. The rate of extreme poverty remains high in low-income countries and in countries affected by conflict. Crises have disproportionate consequences for the poor: people exposed to natural hazards in the poorest nations are at least seven times more likely to die from them than those in the richest nations.

Fragile and conflict-affected areas are growing faster and urbanizing more rapidly than the rest of the world

In the past five years, the world’s population has grown by 400 million people, from 7.2 billion in 2014 to 7.6 billion in 2017. Although global population growth has slowed compared with previous decades, the rate has been uneven. Today, an estimated 2 billion people live in fragile and conflict affected areas of the word, where they are extremely vulnerable to the impact of conflicts and disasters. This number is projected to increase, as the population in these areas is growing twice as fast as the rest of the world, with an annual growth rate of 2.4 per cent, compared with 1.2 per cent globally. And the urban population in fragile areas grows by 3.4 per cent each year, compared with the world average of 2 per cent. These trends can compound resource scarcity and increase vulnerability to disasters. Urban population density can also amplify the impact of disasters and conflicts. In 2017, when explosive weapons were used in populated areas, 92 per cent of casualties were civilians, compared with 20 per cent in other areas. The populations of countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence are also younger than the global average. Whereas the proportion of the world’s population under 14 years of age has been steadily declining to about 25 per cent today, the average for countries in fragile situations is 40 per cent. As a result, one in every four children in the world is living in a country affected by conflict or disaster, facing threats of violence, hunger and disease. In 2017, more than 75 million children experienced disruptions to their education because of humanitarian crises, threatening not only their present well-being, but their future prospects as well.

More people are being displaced by conflicts

By the end of 2017, war, violence and persecution had uprooted 68.5 million men, women and children around the world – the highest number on record, and nearly 10 million more people than in 2014. Just over 40 million people were internally displaced by violence within their own countries, and 25.4 million refugees and 3.1 million asylum seekers were forced to flee their countries to escape conflict and persecution. The levels of new displacements far outstrip returns or other solutions. In 2017, 5 million people returned to their areas or countries of origin, but 16.2 million people were newly displaced – an average of one person displaced every two seconds, and the highest level of new displacement on record.

The rise in forced displacement is not the result of an increase in conflicts. In fact, after peaking in 2014, the number of political conflicts worldwide decreased by about 10 per cent, from 424 in 2014 to 385 in 2017, although there are still more conflicts compared with a decade ago (328 in 2007). However, during the same period, the proportion of violent and highly violent conflicts, which are more likely to cause human suffering, destruction and displacement, increased from 53 per cent to 58 per cent of all conflicts worldwide.5 The total economic impact of conflict and violence has also increased, from $14.3 trillion in 2014 to $14.8 trillion in 2017.6 The major share of both the human and economic cost of conflicts is borne by developing countries, which host 85 per cent of refugees.


          

AMERICA/PANAMA - Per i Vescovi servono “ascolto, rispetto e dialogo per costruire la patria”

 Cache   
Città di Panama – Un appello a cittadini e autorità perché prevalgano “rispetto reciproco, ascolto attento, dialogo, saggezza e tolleranza come modi per trovare il consenso nazionale su una questione così delicata e importante come le riforme costituzionali” è stato lanciato dal Comitato permanente della Conferenza Episcopale di Panama all’inizio del mese della Patria.
Nel comunicato, pervenuto a Fides, i Vescovi rilevano che il clima di tensione e di violenza degli ultimi giorni, che ha causato feriti e danni, desta “grande preoccupazione per gli abitanti di questo paese”, e sebbene “il diritto fondamentale di protestare e manifestare su questioni nazionali e vitali per il paese non è negoziabile”, non meno importante è che tutto avvenga senza violenza e nel rispetto, “in modo che la voce della gente non sia distorta”.
“Le riforme costituzionali richiedono la piena partecipazione di tutti i settori del paese, senza l'esclusione di nessuno – ribadiscono i Vescovi -, quindi dobbiamo garantire che ciò sia possibile attraverso un meccanismo serio, agile e trasparente, in cui tutti i contributi possano essere registrati, per raggiungere un consenso nazionale. Panama merita una Costituzione che risponde alle sfide del mondo di oggi, fatti salvi i valori e i principi etici e morali che l'hanno sostenuta nel corso della sua storia”.
Le riforme che il governo di Panama vuole attuare, modificano 40 articoli della Costituzione, e toccano temi fondamentali come la salute, l’educazione e l’ambiente. Secondo la popolazione, i cambiamenti potrebbero causare un aumento delle discriminazioni, oltre a favorire l’impunità e la corruzione. Da qui nascono le proteste popolari e gli scontri, che erano iniziate da diverse settimane e che si sono inasprite negli ultimi giorni. A Panama infatti si registra un grande malcontento per una distibuzione della ricchezza che privilegia solo una classe ristretta di persone cui si contrappongono folle di poveri e di emarginati.
Il comunicato dei Vescovi si conclude sottolineando l’urgenza di “restituire la speranza persa a causa dell'ingiustizia, della corruzione e dell'esclusione” e per raggiungere questo scopo ognuno deve “seminare segni visibili e tangibili che fanno germogliare credibilità e fiducia nel Panama”.

Dr. Bean's Coffee at Puck Food Hall

 Cache   
The coffee roaster is the newest addition to Puck Food Hall.

Dr. Bean's Coffee Roasters, which is co-owned by Dr. Albert Bean and Charles Billings, imports coffee beans from around the world and "roasts them with care" to ensure an unparalleled coffee-drinking experience.

"We have always been looking for a customer-facing location," Billings says. "When the food hall approached us about the opportunity [to move in], we thought it was the best of both worlds."

As an incubator, Puck Food Hall offers a safe space for culinary minds to show off their creations with very little overhead, as well as a sense of camaraderie among the chefs and creators involved.

"I guess it's like culinary heaven," Billings says of Puck Food Hall. "It's sort of like this beautiful melting pot of everything going on in the culinary side of Memphis."

Bean, an E.R. doctor at Methodist University Hospital, had always wanted to start a coffee business.

"Where do young doctors spend most of their time when they're studying? Coffee shops," Billings explains. "Because they're going to class for 12, 13, 20 hours a day in hospitals. So [Bean] had always had the idea to it."

Billings and Bean met as neighbors when they were young, and it wasn't long before the two started to develop Bean's vision.

"We had always talked about wanting to do something together. And then he took a tour of a coffee farm when he was in Panama, and that sort of rekindled that fire for doing coffee," Billings says. "Three weeks later, he's at a medical conference in Portland and met the guys from Water Avenue Coffee. They're sort of coffee royalty and really great people who started to inspire us."

Billings and Bean realized that there was a burgeoning coffee community right here in Memphis and wanted to be part of it.

"For the last five years, we've been sort of hyper-locally growing and building our coffee community," Billings says. "Memphis has always had that local feel to it. Now there are six or seven local coffee roasters.

"It's just a really, really big coffee community and a really neat time for coffee in Memphis in particular. And the community itself is great. We'll meet for cocktails and just sort of talk about the things we're doing with coffee, what's fun, what's exciting to us — any technical stuff that we're having problems with, we can reach out and communicate."

Members of the Memphis coffee community seem less competitive and more collaborative and supportive, Billings explains.

Billings' and Bean's hard work has been paying off, too: Dr. Bean's is winning awards across the country, including second place in Coffeefest's best American espresso competition.

"We also participate every year in one of the biggest roaster competitions in the country, which is called Golden Bean North America. This year, we came home with 17 medals — three silver and 14 bronze," he says.

A large part of their success comes from their commitment to sourcing coffee beans from only the most reputable and prestigious farms in the world, including the Elida Estate in Panama. And as head roaster, Billings takes his duties seriously.

"We are the stewards of all of those farmers' hard work, and then it's my job as a roaster to highlight the best I can of that and then to train the baristas to really tell the story behind the coffee," he says.

Both through their kinship with the local coffee community and by participating in national competitions, Billings says that they're "always learning, always teaching.

"You're always challenging yourself to do a little bit more and be a little bit better."

Stop by Dr. Bean's Tuesday through Sunday at 409 S. Main, and be sure to try the Spiced Sweet Potato Latte before it's gone.

A börtön ablakában

 Cache   

Come on God, answer Me. For years I'm asking you Why?
Why are the innocent dead and the guilty alive?
Where is Justice? Where is Punishment?
Or have you already answered? Have you already said to the world:
"Here is Justice! Here is Punishment! Here, in Me?"

Biohazard: Punishment

Biztos valahonnan nézve elég fura, de sokunknak volt tegnap nagyon jó napja: letartóztatták Hunvald Györgyöt. Hunvald városszerte az egyik elsőszámú politikus-maffiózó, úgy gondoltunk rá, mint Eichmannra a nácivadászok, fülig érő szájjal újságoltuk egymásnak a hírt, és rövid egy órával nyilvánosságra kerülése után már alig volt olyan városvédelmi, környezeti ügyekben mozgó ember, aki ne tudott volna róla. Volt, aki ugrált örömében.
Hunvald és Verók István, a Terézvárosi polgármester ténykedését nem sorolom fel, valószínűleg minden rossz igaz, amit róluk írnak. Legyen elég annyi, hogy képviselőtársai szerint H. Györgynek van pár év az életrajzában, amivel nem tud elszámolni, s hogy szabadidejében lőterekre jár. Igen nagy koncentrációban szimbolizálja mindazt, amit a politikába felszivárgott szervezett bűnözésben annyira utálunk.
A fenti örömködéseket az magyarázza, hogy a belváros pusztításának fékezését célzó társadalmi szervezeteknek nagyon, nagyon sok munkája van abban, hogy végre elkezdődtek a letartóztatások, és a sok közül az egyik főbűnös rács mögött van. Az Óvásnak, a Levegő Munkacsoportnak, a Nagymező utcaiaknak, a Barát utcaiaknak, a Nagydiófa utcaiaknak, a Hunyadi térieknek, a Védegyletnek, a Szindikátusnak és a többi ellenállónak – illetve a nagyszerű Sipos Anett tényfeltáró cikkeinek köszönhető, hogy a hatóságok ez ügyben végezték a kötelességüket.
Ez a két ember olyan erejű és frissességű civil szervezkedést provokált ki maga ellen, ami az egész főállású (fizetett forradalmár) NGO-s körnek rendkívül inspiráló volt. A Barát utcaiak például egy utcabuli keretében megdöntötték a Kádár rendszert.
Ha innen nézzük, könnyen beláthatjuk, hogy érdemeik múlhatatlanok.

Sokan mondják, hogy a zöldek mindenre csak nemet mondanak, meg semmi sem tetszik nekik - na ez most nem igaz, zsinórban a második pozitív poszt, és ha holnap Hagyó Miklóst is lecsukják, akkor még az is megfordul a fejemben, hogy nincs is ránk szükség.

S hogy mi legyen egyébként? Az LMP benyújtott egy Alkotmánybírósági beadványt, hogy semmisítsék meg annak lehetőségét, hogy az önkormányzatok üzleti érdekből zárt ülést tarthassanak. Az például sokat javíthatna a helyzeten – nem csak a közpénzek kezelésén, hanem a politikus-csemetékén és feleségekén is: nem kéne annyit beszélőre járni, magyarázkodni, szégyenkezni. De ez még odébb van. Addig nagyon sok mindennek kéne a végére járni. A magunk részéről antikkorrupciós javaslatcsomagunkon túl  egy tál saját sütésű süteményt ajánlunk fel azoknak, akik felelős állampolgárként a hatóságokhoz vagy a nyilvánossághoz fordulva érdemben hozzájárulnak a vezető politikusok korrupciós ügyeinek leleplezéséhez.

A tegnapi eredményért pedig köszönet minden civilnek, aki a terézvárosi, erzsébetvárosi panamák köztudatba emelésén dolgozott: akik dózerral mentek Hunvaldék elé, akik fagyoskodtak a Nagymező utcában, akik a Jókai térre néző ablakaikba, erkélyeikre transzparenseket lógattak, akik a Király utca 40-et vigyázták, amikor bontani akarták, akik a régi zsidónegyed értékeit számba vették és megismertették, akik utcabált és közösségi életet teremtettek a Barát utcában, akik éjszakákon át jogszabályokat és cikkeket és rendezési terveket tanulmányoztak, iskolából lógtak el, hogy aláírást gyűjtsenek, performance-okat szerveztek, és így tovább.


Megfigyeltétek?
Egyre gyakrabban derül ki, hogy érdemes.

José Antonio Ureta. Sinodo Panamazzonico o Sinodo di Pistoia?

 Cache   
Chissà se è per timore dei cardinali Brandmüller, Müller e Burke oppure per non dare ragione al vescovo Athanasius Schneider [vedi rispettivi interventi: Indice degli articoli sul Sinodo per l'Amazzonia] che il Vaticano ha ritenuto prudente evitare la presenza della statua della Pachamama nella Messa di chiusura dell’Assemblea speciale del Sinodo per la Regione Panamazzonica. Chissà se è per lo stesso motivo che gli scandalosi riferimenti panteistici dell‘Instrumentum laboris, con le loro lodi alle religioni pagane come strumenti alternativi di salvezza, sono stati diplomaticamente limati nel Documento finale.
Tuttavia, uno dei proiettili della vera e propria bomba a grappolo di fabbricazione tedesca che è stato il recente Sinodo ha portato, nel Documento Finale, una carica esplosiva maggiore di quella dei suoi documenti preparatori. Mi riferisco all’ambita rivoluzione ecclesiologica, corrispondente ai sogni  dorati di Leonardo Boff ed espressi nel suo libro “Ecclesiogenesi: le comunità di base reinventano la Chiesa”[1].

Nel Capitolo V del Documento Finale del Sinodo, “Nuovi cammini di Conversione Sinodale”, si dice che “questo Sinodo ci offre l’occasione di riflettere su come strutturare le chiese locali in ogni regione e paese” (n ° 91) , poiché “la sinodalità è una dimensione costitutiva della Chiesa” (n ° 88), che “caratterizza la Chiesa del Vaticano II,  intesa come Popolo di Dio, nell’uguaglianza e nella comune dignità di fronte alla diversità dei ministeri, carismi e servizi” (N ° 87). Per “superare il clericalismo” (n ° 88), la sinodalità impone uno stile di comunione ecclesiale “caratterizza(to) per il rispetto della dignità e dell’uguaglianza di tutti i battezzati e le battezzate, la complementarità dei carismi e dei ministeri” ( N. 91). 

Riconoscendo che “le forme organizzative per l’esercizio della sinodalità possono essere diverse”, il documento insiste sul fatto che devono stabilire una sincronia tra la comunione e la partecipazione, tra la corresponsabilità e la ministerialità di tutti, prestando particolare attenzione all’effettiva partecipazione dei laici (n° 92). Oltre ad “assemblee e consigli pastorali in tutti i settori ecclesiali”, esistono già “gruppi di coordinamento” e “ministeri affidati ai laici”, ed è necessario “rafforzare ed espandere gli spazi per la partecipazione dei laici, sia nella consultazione che nella presa di decisioni, nella vita e nella missione della Chiesa” (n ° 94). Con la sola riserva che “si conferiscano ministeri a uomini e donne in modo equo” (n ° 95).

Le misure pratiche per attuare tale espansione sono di vasta portata. 

Una di queste consiste nell’affidare “l’esercizio della cura pastorale” delle comunità in cui non esiste un sacerdote residente a “a una persona non investita del carattere sacerdotale, che sia membro della comunità stessa”. Per evitare “personalismi” deve essere “un incarico a rotazione”, che non impedisce che venga raccomandato al vescovo di istituirlo “con un mandato ufficiale attraverso un atto rituale”. Per salvare le apparenze, si più avanti si dice “resterà sempre il sacerdote, con la potestà e la facoltà di parroco, a essere il responsabile della comunità” (n ° 96).

Visto che “la madre terra ha un volto femminile”, e che le donne  devono poter «contribuire con la loro sensibilità alla sinodalità ecclesiale»  (n. 101), un’altra misura, ancor più rivoluzionaria, richiesta è la creazione di un “ministero istituito di donne dirigenti di comunità” e la possibilità di “ricevere i ministeri del lettorato e dell’accolitato, tra gli altri che possono essere svolti» (n. 102). Quest’ultimo a titolo provvisorio, giacché si chiede pure di continuare a studiare la possibilità di un diaconato femminile (n. 103).

Infine, in nome della diversità delle discipline nella Chiesa, si propone di “ordinare sacerdoti uomini idonei e riconosciuti della comunità…potendo avere una famiglia legittimamente costituita e stabile”, per “la predicazione della Parola e la celebrazione dei sacramenti”  (n ° 111).

Quest’ultimo suggerimento coincide con il sacerdozio low cost e limitato a una comunità proposta dal vescovo emerito di Aliwal (Sudafrica), mons. Fritz Löbinger. Ma tutte le proposte precedenti si adattano come un anello al dito all’ecclesiologia dell’ex frate liberazionista Leonardo Boff. È quanto vedremo di seguito.

Si noti che, nel Documento finale, c’è un silenzio assoluto sulla differenza ontologica esistente tra il sacerdozio ministeriale dei clerici ordinati e il sacerdozio universale dei fedeli e, ancor più, sul fatto che il primo deriva, mediante l’imposizione delle mani, dal sacerdozio di Cristo, a  Cui chi lo riceve rimane ontologicamente configurato. Al contrario, si insiste su “una Chiesa che è tutta ministeriale” (n ° 93), sulla “diversità dei ministeri, carismi e servizi” (n ° 87), sulla “ministerialità di tutti” (n ° 92), sulla necessaria “complementarità dei carismi e dei ministeri” (n ° 91) e sulla necessità di “superare il clericalismo” (n ° 90).

Questa concezione “sinodale” della Chiesa del Documento Finale coincide, in sostanza, con la “reinvenzione della Chiesa” dalle sue basi agognata da Leonardo Boff. Per l’ex frate sanzionato dalla Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, la prassi delle Comunità Ecclesiali di Base (CEB) ha superato una Chiesa pensata “secondo l’asse Cristo-Chiesa, all’interno di una visione giuridica”, secondo cui “Cristo trasmette tutto il potere ai Dodici e questi ai loro successori”, dividendo la comunità “tra governanti e governati, celebranti e assistenti, produttori e consumatori di sacramenti”[2].  Al contrario, le CEB sottolineano la realtà fondamentale: “la presenza attiva del Risorto e del suo Spirito all’interno dell’intera comunità umana”. Il che porta a “concepire la Chiesa più dalla base che dal vertice; è accettare la corresponsabilità di tutti nell’edificazione della Chiesa e non solo di alcuni appartenenti all’istituzione clericale”[3]. Pertanto, all’interno delle CEB, “prevale la circolazione dei ruoli di coordinamento e animazione, essendo il potere in funzione della comunità e non di una persona; ciò che viene respinto non è il potere stesso, ma il suo monopolio, che implica l’espropriazione a beneficio di una élite”[4]. Il risultato è che “l’intera comunità è ministeriale, non solo alcuni membri”[5]. Rappresentate graficamente, si ottengono le seguenti immagini dell’ecclesiologia tradizionale (a sinistra) e dell’ecclesiologia delle CEB (a destra):
In questi grafici schematici Boff  vuole indicare che nella sua concezione della Chiesa “la realtà Popolo di Dio emerge come l’istanza prima mentre l’organizzazione come la seconda. Il potere di Cristo (exousia) non risiede solo in alcuni membri bensì nella totalità del Popolo di Dio”. Questo potere “si diversifica a seconda delle funzioni specifiche ma non esclude nessuno”, giacché “il dato dominante è la fondamentale uguaglianza di tutti” e solo in un secondo momento “emergono differenze e gerarchie”[6]. Sorge, ad esempio, “un  carisma specifico con la funzione di essere il principio di unità fra tutti i carismi”, però “è un carisma che non sta fuori, bensì dentro la comunità, non sopra la comunità, ma per il bene  della comunità”[7]. Rappresentato graficamente, risulta il seguente schema, con cui viene evidenziato il fatto che “tutti i servizi sorgono dentro la comunità e per la comunità”[8].

Come noto, nello scambio di corrispondenza fra il teologo brasiliano della liberazione e la Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, l’allora prefetto cardinale Ratzinger lo accusò di proporre “nuovi modelli di Chiesa in cui il potere sia concepito senza privilegi teologici, come mero servizio articolato secondo le necessità del popolo, della comunità”, mentre “la dottrina tradizionale della Chiesa al riguardo, chiaramente confermata anche dal Concilio Vaticano II, suppone, fra le altre cose, due verità fondamentali: 1) la costituzione della Chiesa è gerarchica per istituzione divina; 2) esiste nella Chiesa un ministero gerarchico legato specialmente ed esclusivamente al sacramento dell’Ordine”[9].

Già in precedenza, e a proposito di un piano pastorale dell’arcidiocesi di Kinshasa che istituì i cosiddetti bakambi, ovvero laici responsabili dell’esercizio della cura pastorale di una comunità, sotto la responsabilità teorica di un sacerdote con la funzione di parroco (un qualcosa di più moderato di quanto proposto dal Documento Finale del Sinodo, poiché a Kinshasa si trattava di un incarico permanente e riservato agli uomini, mentre secondo la proposta sinodale si tratterebbe di un ministero rotativo e aperto equitativamente alle donne), in un’udienza a un gruppo di vescovi zairesi in visita ad limina, papa Giovanni Paolo II dichiarò:

“Bisogna scartare vigorosamente l’idea che di fronte al ministeri e ai sacramenti, tutti i membri delle comunità cristiane abbiano le medesime responsabilità e gli stessi problemi. Dall’epoca apostolica, la Chiesa appare strutturata; accanto ai fedeli, vi sono gli ‘apostoli’, i ‘viri apostolici’, con i loro successori i Vescovi, i sacerdoti, i diaconi. (…) Se determinati modi di comprendere il ‘sensus fidelium’ ricordato dal Concilio Vaticano II sono stati abusivi, è successo così anche per il sacerdozio comune dei fedeli. (…) Ben presto alcuni teologi hanno preteso di ‘rimodellare’ i ministeri. Ma, chi non lo vede? Un ministro designato dalla comunità, o come talvolta si dice dalla ‘base’, non può essere il legittimo collaboratore dei Vescovi e dei sacerdoti. Non si ricollega alla venerabile tradizione apostolica che da noi ai Dodici poi al Signore caratterizza la persistenza storica dell’imposizione delle mani per la comunicazione dello Spirito di Cristo”[10].

Alcuni anni più tardi, l’Istruzione su alcune questioni circa la collaborazione dei fedeli laici al ministero dei sacerdoti, firmata dai cardinali responsabili di otto dicasteri romani, ribadì l’insegnamento tradizionale secondo cui “l’esercizio da parte del ministro ordinato del munus docendi, sanctificandi et regendi costituisce la sostanza del ministero pastorale” e che “non è il compito a costituire il ministero, bensì l’ordinazione sacramentale” [11]. E, nelle sue disposizioni pratiche, dispose che “non è lecito, pertanto, che i fedeli non ordinati assumano, per esempio, la denominazione di ‘pastore’, di ‘cappellano’, di ‘coordinatore’, ‘moderatore’ o altre denominazioni che potrebbero, comunque, confondere il loro ruolo con quello del pastore, che è unicamente il Vescovo e il presbitero”[12].

L’immersione del sacerdozio nel mare dei “ministeri” laicali e la parallela declericalizzazione dei ministri ordinati a causa dell’elevazione all’ordine sacerdotale di uomini sposati che esercitano una professione, proposte dal Sinodo, rappresentano un passo avanti colossale per demolire la struttura gerarchica della Chiesa.

In definitiva, la “sinodalità” che propone il Documento Finale può avere come fondamento teologico solo la dottrina formulata dal cosiddetto “Conciliabolo di Pistoia” e condannata come eretica da Pio VI. In particolare, la tesi secondo cui Gesù Cristo non ha trasmesso il suo triplice potere sacerdotale, magisteriale e pastorale direttamente agli Apostoli ma all’insieme della Chiesa  e che, pertanto, è nel seno delle comunità che sorgono i carismi e i ministeri dei quali esse hanno bisogno ed è da queste quindi che i ministri ricevono il potere per esercitarli[13]. O altrimenti la versione aggiornata dell’ ex-francescano condannato dalla Santa Sede.

Poiché ci troviamo nel pontificato delle riabilitazioni, forse Papa Francesco, in un prossimo concistoro, potrebbe ricompensare Leonardo Boff con la porpora cardinalizia.

Gobierno de Venezuela calificó de "infame" la activación del Tiar

El Gobierno de Nicolás Maduro calificó de "infame" la activación del Tratado Interamericano de Asistencia Recíproca (TIAR) en el seno de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA) con el respaldo de doce países, según un comunicado de la Cancillería de Venezuela.

La Administración de Maduro denunció "la infame decisión de un pequeño grupo de Gobiernos de la región que, alineados a los intereses del Gobierno supremacista de Estados Unidos, invocaron la activación de un nefasto instrumento de la historia de nuestro continente, como es el caso del Tiar".

Lea también: OEA aumenta presión: ¿Para qué sirve el tratado militar contra "amenaza" en Venezuela?

En el texto, se advierte que el Tiar, una instancia similar a una Otan americana y que abre la puerta a la intervención militar, "fue impuesto a nuestra región por Estados Unidos en el marco de la Guerra Fría y su propósito fue legitimar intervenciones militares en América Latina por razones ideológicas".

De igual forma, el mandatario Nicolás Maduro, dijo que su país tiene quien lo defienda, "a Venezuela se respeta carajo".

En contexto: Doce países de la OEA activan pacto militar frente a amenaza en Venezuela

Los países que votaron a favor fueron Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Estados Unidos, Guatemala, Haití, Honduras, Paraguay, República Dominicana y Venezuela, esta última representada por los delegados del líder opositor venezolano Juan Guaidó.

En su comunicado, el Gobierno de Maduro cita los casos de Guatemala en 1954, en Cuba en 1961, en República Dominicana en 1965, en Granada en 1983 y en Panamá en 1989. Además, destaca que no se activó para proteger a Argentina durante la Guerra de Las Malvinas en 1982.

"Los Estados Unidos traicionaron al continente y obviaron su activación, alineándose con su socio de la Otan", dice el comunicado.

Para el Gobierno, "resulta doloroso que países que fueron invadidos por tropas estadounidenses y cuyos pueblos fueron masacrados en aplicación del Tiar, hoy avalen un crimen semejante contra un país hermano, en una sesión del Consejo Permanente de la OEA a todas luces írrita y nula".

Rinden homenaje póstumo a José Manuel López Valdés en Miami

 Cache   

La Asamblea 53 de la Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos (Felaban) rindió en Miami un homenaje póstumo al expresidente de esa entidad y presidente de la Asociación de Bancos Comerciales de la República Dominicana (ABA), José Manuel López Valdés, quien falleció a los 75 años el pasado 25 de octubre en Santo Domingo.

Los asambleístas reunidos en Hollywood, al norte de Miami, también hicieron un homenaje al financista Mario de Diego Jr., reconocido por su trabajo a favor de la formación del Centro Financiero Internacional de Panamá, además de haber sido Superintendente de Bancos de ese país y vicepresidente ejecutivo de la Asociación Bancaria Panameña. De Diego murió el 29 de octubre a los 87 años.

El presidente y el secretario general de Felaban, Carlos Troetsch Saval y Giorgio Trettenero, respectivamente, encabezaron al inicio de la asamblea, en la que participan 1,700 ejecutivos de la banca de 54 países, el acto de recordación a López Valdés y a De Diego. La asamblea es organizada por la Asociación de Banqueros de La Florida (FIBA).

“José Manuel fue uno de los pilares de la banca en la República Dominicana e impactó en América Latina antes y durante su trabajo como presidente de Felaban. Tuve la dicha de recibir de él el honor de dirigir esta federación el año pasado en esta misma fecha”, manifestó Troetsch Saval.

Sobre Mario De Diego sostuvo que no existe banquero que no lo haya reconocido y respetado por su trabajo sobre lo que hoy es el Centro Financiero Internacional de Panamá y sus aportes en los momentos más difíciles de la era republicana panameña.

“Solo cuando uno cumple la misión que Dios nos encomendó en esta tierra, tiene el derecho al regresar a la Casa del Padre. Estoy seguro que José Manuel y Mario se fueron directo al cielo. Celebramos sus vidas y el legado que dejaron a los banqueros de América Latina”, expresó Troetsch Saval.

Los presentes guardaron un momento de silencio de pie, mientras en las pantallas gigantes se exhibían fotografías de momentos clave de López Valdés y de Mario de Diego en actividades de Felaban.

BID: Desigualdad obstaculiza el crecimiento de las economías latinoamericanas

 Cache   

El presidente del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), Luis Alberto Moreno, dijo este martes en Bogotá que el crecimiento de las economías de Latinoamérica se ha reducido en parte por la desigualdad predominante en la región.

Lo que sucede en 'Latinoamérica es que ha venido cayendo (el crecimiento) de la mano de los problemas tradicionales que hemos tenido de desigualdad, que es un tema muy grave', afirmó Moreno, que está en Colombia con motivo de la celebración de los 60 años del BID.

Al hacer referencia a la situación de Chile y un posible contagio de las protestas masivas al resto de la región, Moreno destacó que en los últimos 32 años ese país ha crecido y es una 'historia de éxito'.

'No hay duda de que lo que vemos hoy en día en general en América Latina y en Chile, especialmente, es un proceso en el cual no solamente se redujo significativamente la pobreza, sino también que hubo un crecimiento de las clases medias', dijo Moreno.

Pese a este escenario, Chile vive un estallido social sin precedentes desde el fin de la dictadura de Pinochet en 1990, con masivas manifestaciones en las calles y disturbios que fueron reprimidos por la Policía y las Fuerzas Armadas y que hasta la fecha se han cobrado la vida de al menos 20 personas, seis de ellas extranjeras.

Las protestas reclaman al Gobierno del presidente Sebastián Piñera que adopte medidas para cerrar la brecha de la desigualdad que afecta al grueso de la población.

De otra parte, Moreno se mostró optimista con el crecimiento de la economía colombiana y dijo que el país tiene todo el potencial para crecer por encima de gigantes como Brasil y México.

'Lo que ha demostrado la economía colombiana es que tiene mucha resiliencia. Es una de las economías que más crece en Suramérica', destacó.

Moreno recordó que este año no será bueno para el crecimiento de América Latina pues los grandes motores de crecimiento, 'Brasil y México, no van a crecer arriba del 1 %'.

Además, Venezuela está en 'una gran recesión' y los países que están creciendo son Chile, Perú, Colombia y Panamá.

La economía colombiana se expandirá un 3,4 % este año y un 3,5 % en 2020, el mejor resultado de América Latina, según un informe divulgado hace dos semanas en Bogotá por la Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económicos (OCDE), que recomendó al país que reduzca la informalidad laboral.

El BID, con sede en Washington, tiene representaciones en los 26 países miembros prestatarios de América Latina y el Caribe, a los que se suman 22 naciones donantes, entre ellos España, China, Japón y Estados Unidos.
