Treasuries Regain Ground Following Recent Weakness

 Cache   

After moving sharply lower over the three previous sessions, treasuries regained some ground during trading on Wednesday.

Bond prices initially moved higher and saw some further upside as the day progressed. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, slid 5.2 basis points to 1.814 percent.

Bargain hunting contributed to the early strength among treasuries, with the ten-year yield pulling back off its highest closing level in nearly two months.

Treasuries saw further upside after a report from Reuters said a meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping could be delayed until December.

A senior Trump administration official told Reuters discussions continue over terms of phase one of the trade deal and a venue for a meeting between Trump and Xi.

Sites in Europe and Asia have been suggested for the meeting, with Sweden and Switzerland among the possibilities, while Trump's suggestion of Iowa appears to have been ruled out, the official said.

The official said China's latest push for more tariff rollbacks was not expected to derail progress toward an interim deal but noted that it was still possible an agreement would not be reached.

Treasuries remained firmly positive after the Treasury Department revealed this month's auction of $27 billion worth of ten-year notes attracted above average demand.

The ten-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.809 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.49, while the ten previous ten-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.42.

The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

Looking ahead, the Treasury is due to announce the results of its auction of $19 billion worth of thirty-year bonds on Thursday.

A report on weekly jobless claims may also attract attention on Thursday, although traders are likely to remain focus on any news regarding a trade deal.

New Study on U.S. Eighth-Grade Students’ Computer Literacy

 Cache   

In the 21st-century global economy, computer literacy and skills are an important part of an education that prepares students to compete in the workplace. The results of a recent assessment show us how U.S. students compare to some of their international peers in the areas of computer information literacy and computational thinking.

In 2018, the U.S. participated for the first time in the International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS), along with 13 other education systems around the globe. The ICILS is a computer-based international assessment of eighth-grade students that measures outcomes in two domains: computer and information literacy (CIL)[1] and computational thinking (CT).[2] It compares U.S. students’ skills and experiences using technology to those of students in other education systems and provides information on teachers’ experiences, school resources, and other factors that may influence students’ CIL and CT skills.

ICILS is sponsored by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and is conducted in the United States by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

The newly released U.S. Results from the 2018 International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS) web report provides information on how U.S. students performed on the assessment compared with students in other education systems and describes students’ and teachers’ experiences with computers.


U.S. Students’ Performance

In 2018, U.S. eighth-grade students’ average score in CIL was higher than the average of participating education systems[3] (figure 1), while the U.S. average score in CT was not measurably different from the average of participating education systems.

 


Figure 1. Average computer and information literacy (CIL) scores of eighth-grade students, by education system: 2018p < .05. Significantly different from the U.S. estimate at the .05 level of statistical significance.

¹ Met guidelines for sample participation rates only after replacement schools were included.

² National Defined Population covers 90 to 95 percent of National Target Population.

³ Did not meet the guidelines for a sample participation rate of 85 percent and not included in the international average.

⁴ Nearly met guidelines for sample participation rates after replacement schools were included.

⁵ Data collected at the beginning of the school year.

NOTE: The ICILS computer and information literacy (CIL) scale ranges from 100 to 700. The ICILS 2018 average is the average of all participating education systems meeting international technical standards, with each education system weighted equally. Education systems are ordered by their average CIL scores, from largest to smallest. Italics indicate the benchmarking participants.

SOURCE: International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), the International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS), 2018.


 

Given the importance of students’ home environments in developing CIL and CT skills (Fraillon et al. 2019), students were asked about how many computers (desktop or laptop) they had at home. In the United States, eighth-grade students with two or more computers at home performed better in both CIL and CT than their U.S. peers with fewer computers (figure 2). This pattern was also observed in all participating countries and education systems.

³ Did not meet the guidelines for a sample participation rate of 85 percent and not included in the international average.

⁴ Nearly met guidelines for sample participation rates after replacement schools were included.

NOTE: The ICILS computational thinking (CT) scale ranges from 100 to 700. The number of computers at home includes desktop and laptop computers. Students with fewer than two computers include students reporting having “none” or “one” computer. Students with two or more computers include students reporting having “two” or “three or more” computers. The ICILS 2018 average is the average of all participating education systems meeting international technical standards, with each education system weighted equally. Education systems are ordered by their average scores of students with two or more computers at home, from largest to smallest. Italics indicate the benchmarking participants.

U.S. Students’ Technology Experiences

Among U.S. eighth-grade students, 72 percent reported using the Internet to do research in 2018, and 56 percent reported completing worksheets or exercises using information and communications technology (ICT)[4] every school day or at least once a week. Both of these percentages were higher than the respective ICILS averages (figure 3). The learning activities least frequently reported by U.S eighth-grade students were using coding software to complete assignments (15 percent) and making video or audio productions (13 percent).

[1] CIL refers to “an individual's ability to use computers to investigate, create, and communicate in order to participate effectively at home, at school, in the workplace, and in society” (Fraillon et al. 2019).

[2] CT refers to “an individual’s ability to recognize aspects of real-world problems which are appropriate for computational formulation and to evaluate and develop algorithmic solutions to those problems so that the solutions could be operationalized with a computer” (Fraillon et al. 2019). CT was an optional component in 2018. Nine out of 14 ICILS countries participated in CT in 2018.

[3] U.S. results are not included in the ICILS international average because the U.S. school level response rate of 77 percent was below the international requirement for a participation rate of 85 percent.

[4] Information and communications technology (ICT) can refer to desktop computers, notebook or laptop computers, netbook computers, tablet devices, or smartphones (except when being used for talking and texting).

Ryan Crouser awarded USATF Athlete of the Week honors after his performance in the men’s shot put at the 2017 USATF Outdoor Championships.

6/28/2017   INDIANAPOLIS-- Following his dominant performance that saw a meet and stadium record at the USATF Outdoor Championships in Sacramento, California in the men’s shot put, 2016 Olympic Champion, Ryan Crouser (Boring, Oregon) is this week’s USATF Athlete of the Week.


Crouser arrived at Hornet Stadium the clear favorite after claiming his first Diamond League victory at the Prefontaine Classic in late May. He entered the sixth round of throws in a tight battle with Joe Kovacs (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) and launched a monster personal best of 22.65m/73’ 3 ¾“. His mark ranks number six all time and is further than his winning throw from the Rio Olympic Games.


Following the competition, Crouser told the media, “That was definitely a good one. I came in a little more rested than usual, so there was a lot of power there. To throw of 22 meters twice with what were basically off throws is encouraging.”


Crouser is set to compete at the Diamond League in Lausanne, Switzerland on July 6th, 2017 before the IAAF World Championships in London, England.

Ebola emergency chief decries new attacks on frontline staff, after DR Congo worker death

 Cache   
INTERNATIONAL, 4 November 2019, Health - Security measures for staff helping to fight health emergencies need to be stepped up urgently, a UN health agency top official said on Monday, after a frontline Ebola epidemic community worker was reportedly stabbed to death at his home in northeast Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

Speaking at a public event in Geneva, Dr Mike Ryan from the World Health Organization (WHO), said that in his 25-year humanitarian career, violence carried out deliberately against health workers and hospitals had never been so bad.

The “overwhelming impact” had been on local health workers, not international staff, Dr Ryan told a Geneva Peace Week event, in his capacity as Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme.

Despite the risks of working in insecure locations, “one doesn’t really have a choice but to go, as the epidemic will continue to spread and intensify like a fire if it’s not put out”, he said. “It does put our workers at the extreme edge of risk.”

Echoing Dr Ryan’s message of sympathy, WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr Matshidiso Moeti tweeted her condolences to the family and friends of the worker killed in DRC.

In 2019 alone, there have been 862 reported attacks on healthcare workers and facilities from just 10 countries, resulting in 173 deaths and 557 significant injuries. “And that probably is a massive underestimation of the problem,” Dr Ryan insisted.

Destroy a hospital and you destroy hope

Among the most shocking aspects of this growing trend for humanitarians was the effect it had on civilians, he added.

“One of the last hopes a community has in conflict is the ability to seek care for your children or the injured. The destruction of a health care facility is more than the destruction of a building; it tears the heart out of a community and it takes the hope away from the community, and as such its impact is much, much greater.”

In a joint UN-DRC Ministry of Health statement, both noted that the victim – who has not been officially named - also worked as a reporter at a community radio station in Lwemba, and that his partner was critically injured, suffering multiple wounds.

Two suspects have been arrested and the investigators are looking to see whether the murder is linked to the ongoing Ebola response, they added.

In Geneva, Dr Ryan also expressed his sympathies for the families of three UN Migration Agency (IOM) workers killed eight days ago near an Ebola screening point on South Sudan’s border with DRC last Wednesday.

No new information about South Sudan abductees

According to IOM, its staff were caught in crossfire during clashes between armed groups in Morobo County, in South Sudan’s Central Equatoria region.

A volunteer worker and a child were also abducted during the incident, prompting an appeal for their immediate and unconditional release by the agency, which on Monday said that it had no new information about the case.

Since 1 January, WHO has documented more than 300 attacks on health care facilities in DRC that have resulted in six deaths and 70 injuries of workers and patients.

The current Ebola outbreak, began in DRC last August, and is the most lethal in the nation’s history, although recent progress has seen cases fall. The virus has claimed more than 2,180 lives; more than 1,050 people have survived.

“It’s not just the physical attacks, it’s the harassment, it is the fear of going to work,” Dr Ryan said, highlighting the “tremendous psychological stress” on workers.

'We can't sit back and wait'

Welcoming continuing financial support among Member States including the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and the United States for frontline staff to operate with added security measures, he stressed too that the humanitarian community could do more to protect them.

“We can’t sit back and wait for international humanitarian law to change or political will to change,” he said. “We need to professionalize how we operate in these situations, we need to improve our security briefings for staff, we need to improve awareness among our staff…the stresses on our staff are extreme.”

He added: “We call on our donors to look positively on those costs because these are the real costs of doing business in humanitarian settings right now”.


          

2019 ESMO Award for Immuno-Oncology goes to Thomas Gajewski

 Cache   


The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) has selected Prof. Thomas Gajewski to receive the 2019 ESMO Award for Immuno-Oncology. The award is given in recognition of his groundbreaking work elucidating why some patients are resistant to immunotherapy and how to restore the anti-cancer immune response.
The award will be presented during this year’s ESMO Immuno-Oncology Congress in Geneva, Switzerland (11-14 December 2019). 
Gajewski is Abbvie Foundation Professor of Cancer Immunotherapy in the Ben May Department for Cancer Research and Professor of Pathology and Medicine at the University of Chicago, where he has worked for more than two decades furthering understanding of fundamental aspects of anti-tumour immunity and translating this into new treatment strategies.

Immunotherapy represents a huge breakthrough for many cancer patients, effectively ‘taking the brakes’ off the body’s immune system so that T cells can detect and attack tumour cells. But some patients don’t respond to immunotherapy and Gajewski focussed on finding out why. To do this he explored the tumour microenvironment – the immune cells, stroma, and the tumour cells themselves – to tease out how this influences tumour responses to the immune system.

“Many of us have been doing research in the field of cancer immunotherapy for over 20 years, and it is amazing to see the progress that is currently benefiting so many patients. It is humbling to be recognised as perhaps representative of this group, and especially by my European colleagues,” said Gajewski.

Looking to the future, Gajewski said, “Our view is that the clinical benefit of checkpoint blockade immunotherapy will hit a plateau, so understanding mechanisms of resistance or failure of the current approaches is necessary to expand efficacy further.” He concluded, “Studying secondary mechanisms of resistance is already leading to new pathways and candidate targets.”
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gajewski’s research group found that patients whose T cells recognise tumour cells have what they called a ‘hot’ or ‘T cell inflamed’ tumour microenvironment. These T cells are suppressed but can fight cancer cells if supported by immunotherapies. In contrast, other patients have ‘cold’ tumours that lack T cells, making them unresponsive to immunotherapy. The next step was to find out how to give T cells access to these ‘cold’ tumour cells.
The group identified a protein complex called STING (STimulator of INterferon Genes) that reacts to DNA that is damaged or has drifted outside the cell nucleus. This helps to alert the immune system that something is wrong, recruiting T cells into the area. The discovery led to the development of STING agonists that proved remarkably effective in laboratory models of cancer and clinical trials of STING agonists are now underway.

Gajweski and co-researchers also found that ‘cold’ tumour cells cloak themselves from T cells by expressing active beta-catenin, an intracellular messenger (4,5). This prevents the entry of dendritic cells, frontline soldiers in the immune system that help to recruit T cells to the tumour site. The group is now using this understanding to develop new therapeutic approaches.

A further major breakthrough was the finding that the presence of certain types of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut flora, the microorganisms colonising the intestines, can improve the response to immunotherapy. The presence of these bacteria appeared to increase T-cell infiltration into the tumour environment, switching the tumour cells from ‘cold’ to ‘hot’ and boosting the response to immunotherapy in patients being treated for advanced melanoma.

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

Introduction

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

A brief history

Sexual orientation and gender identity

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

Internet rights

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

Comparing intersectional recognition

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

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

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

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

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

Politics of sexual orientation and gender identity rights

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Politics of internet rights

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

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

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

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

SOGI versus internet rights policy

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

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

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

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

Moving towards an intersectional approach

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

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

For example, while activists and human rights defenders might use the language of Queer rights, this term has not been taken up by the UN, but the UN does recognise and use L,G,B,T and I.

Topic "Returning to Canada" a message from PMM

Hi

I'm a Canadian married to an English man (UK) and together we have 2 Canadian Children, both born in Canada. We've lived in France for 7 years.

My husband had a Permanent Resident Card in Canada but as it had expired while we were living in France, as we were planning a visit back to Canada, he needed to renounce it in order to apply for an ETA. We plan on moving back permanently next year, will he have to reapply for a Permanent Resident Card all over again?
If yes, can he start the application process from France before our return? Knowing he'd have to go back to Canada for appointments or signing paperwork.
For me and the kids, do we just start on paperwork (licence, healthcard etc) once we return?

Thanks for any help or advice.


1. No, the PR card is only the indication that a person has PR status, your spouse renounced his PR status. (He didn't have to do that, as he was accompanying a Canadian citizen spouse residing abroad he would have maintained his PR status, and only would have required a PR Travel Document to return to Canada) But that's water under the bridged.
2. You will have to sponsor him. As a Canadian citizen residing abroad you can start the process, but will have to demonstrate what steps you have made to return to Canada if he is issued a PR visa (COPR). \
3. If you sponsor abroad, any interviews would be held at the overseas processing office.

4. You and your children will (depending) on the Province where you intend to settle, will most likely have a 3 months waiting period for Health Insurance after your arrival. Depending on what Drivers License you hold, it will be a straight swap for a Provincial DL. DLs that can be swapped

How the Sturmgewehr 57 Became Sig Sauer's First Battle Rifle

 Cache   

Charlie Gao

History, Europe

A legend.

Key point: These rifles were a major leap forward and would put Sig Sauer on the path to being an even bigger gun company.

While Sig Sauer, Inc. may have entered the battle rifle market recently, the original company—SIG, Schweizer Industrie Gesellschaft—produced a variety of them. SIG’s most famous was the SIG SG 510, otherwise known as the Sturmgewehr 57.

Though the Sturmgewehr 57 was a very early battle rifle that retained many vestiges of Swiss bolt action rifles before it, it also featured many thoughtful features and is considered to be among the best battle rifles in the world.

More than anything else, the Sturmgewehr 57 was built for accuracy. The standard Sturmgewehr 57 features a 23-inch long barrel, 3 inches longer than an M16. While this makes it rather unwieldy for close quarters combat or for mechanized troops that might need to enter and exit a vehicle, it suits the light infantry role most Swiss units were set up for at the time. The rifle also featured an integrated bipod, rifle grenade launcher, and excellent diopter sights.

Unlike most rifles where sight adjustment increments remain the same across the range of adjustment, the Sturmgewehr 57 features finer range adjustment increments at extended ranges, where precise ranging matters far more because a fired bullet drops more rapidly the further it goes. Of course, the Sturmgewehr 57’s sights are still reliant on the soldiers knowing precise ranges to targets, but in the Swiss case, most infantry would likely be defending from positions with existing range tables, which would allow them to dial in their sights with great accuracy.

On the other hand, these features come at the cost of great weight. At 12 lbs, the Sturmgewehr 57 is heavier than most WWII firearms. While this weight makes recoil very manageable (by some accounts, only one-third of the K31 bolt action rifle that preceded it), it means the rifle was almost definitely a pain to carry.

PHILADELPHIA -- Steve Mason and the Flyers are playing their best hockey of the seas

 Cache   
PHILADELPHIA -- Steve Mason and the Flyers are playing their best hockey of the season heading into the Olympic break. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Fake . Its a break team chairman Ed Snider would love to abolish. Mason stopped 38 shots, and Mark Streit and Michael Raffl scored goals, leading the Philadelphia Flyers past the Colorado Avalanche 3-1 on Thursday night. But with one game left before the break, the Flyers recent spurt could stall because of the Olympics. "I hate them," said Snider, the Flyers founder. He added: "Its ridiculous, the whole thing is ridiculous. I dont care if it was in Philadelphia, I wouldnt want to break up the league. I think its ridiculous to take three weeks off, or however long it is, in the middle of the season. It screws up everything. .. How can anybody be happy breaking up their season. No other league does it, why should we? Theres no benefit to us whatsoever. If anything, I can only see negatives." Reminded the Flyers reached the Stanley Cup finals during the last Olympics in 2010, Snider laughed. "Maybe I like them," he said. "I forget about that." Claude Giroux, who scored an empty-netter with 20 seconds left Thursday against the Avalanche, has plenty of time to rest during the break. He was snubbed Thursday by Hockey Canada when Martin St. Louis was picked as an injury replacement for his Tampa Bay teammate Steven Stamkos. Steve Yzerman, the Canadians executive director and Tampa Bays general manager, chose St. Louis over Giroux and Pittsburghs James Neal. "Its a farce," Snider said. "Hes one of the best players in the game. Its ridiculous. Hes better than half the guys on that team. "Anybody that thinks that Claude Giroux doesnt belong on the Canadian team, they dont know anything about hockey as far as Im concerned. Its politics, to a certain degree. He had to pick his own guy. His own guy is good, but Claude is better." The Avalanche, who lost 5-1 to the New York Rangers on Tuesday, couldnt solve Mason until it was too late. The Avalanche called timeout with 1:27 left and pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov in a last-gasp effort at the tying goal. It didnt work. The Flyers scored in the second period, when Streits shot from the blue line was deflected by a defenceman and wobbled past Varlamov for his eighth goal. Streit is heading to his fourth Olympics for Switzerland. The Flyers got a scare when centre Brayden Schenn was checked from behind into the boards by Patrick Bordeleau. Schenn quickly got on his skates, and his teammates went after Bordeleau behind the net. Bordeleau threw his right elbow into Schenns back and the Flyer thumped the board, and then hit the ice. Bordeleau was hit with 5 minutes for checking from behind and a game misconduct. Colorado coach Patrick Roy was red faced and furious as he argued with the officials that the hit didnt merit an ejection. Masons play picked up after a recent pep talk from Hall of Fame goalie Bernie Parent. Mason stopped 14 shots in the first period and made the save of the night in the second when he robbed Gabriel Landeskog with a glove save from his rear. "I think we didnt make it hard enough for him in the first 55 minutes," Landeskog said. "I think the last five, we were in his face, banging rebounds, and trying to bang one home there and made it hard on him. We started throwing pucks from different angles and tough angles and what not." Mason posted a 1.51 goals-against-average over his last four starts, stopped 95 per cent of his shots and had two shutouts. "The job as starting goalie every night is to make sure we provide stability back there, and thats what Im trying to do," he said. Raffls seventh goal of the season, off a nice pass by Sean Couturier from behind the net, early in the third was the insurance the Flyers needed to win their third straight. Notes: The Flyers had a video tribute and a moment of silence for former coach and general manager Keith Allen. Allen died Tuesday. He was 90. "I love Keith Allen," Snider said. ... Lauren Hart, the daughter of longtime former Flyers broadcaster Gene Hart, sang "God Bless America," alternating lyrics with Kate Smith, who was on a video image. Smiths rendition of the song has been a rallying anthem for the Flyers since the mid-1970s.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This one could be a costly victory for the Kansas City Royals and an expensive loss for the Tampa Bay Rays. Jason Vargas took a shutout into the ninth inning, Alcides Escobar hit a three-run double and the Royals beat the Rays 4-2 Monday night in a game that included two significant injuries. Rays starter Matt Moore (0-2) came out in the fifth inning with a sore left elbow. The All-Star lefty grimaced after throwing a pitch to Norichika Aoki and was immediately removed by manager Joe Maddon. Two innings later, Royals second baseman Omar Infante was hit in the left jaw by a pitch from Heath Bell. A bleeding Infante walked off the field under his own power. Moore won 17 games last year, but missed 31 games with an elbow injury. He threw 78 pitches Monday and was replaced by Cesar Ramos. "It has to be checked," Maddon said. "There will be tests tomorrow. We dont know whats going on yet. Well get an update later. He tried to talk me out of taking him out but I said I didnt think its a good idea. I went out there and I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. I like to communicate with our guys. He just felt something on a pitch. We knew we cant take any chances on anything." Moore said his final pitch was a changeup. "There was no particular pain," he said. "It really came out of nowhere. I felt it when I was pitching to Escobar, on a changeup, and then I threw two more changeups to Aoki and I felt it. I actually threw a curveball to Aoki to see if I would feel it then, too, but I didnt. It may have something to do with changeups in that situation." Moore, who will have an MRI exam Tuesday, went on the disabled list last July 31 with a sore elbow and did not return until Sept. 3. "Its the same pitch and the area is pretty much the exact same spot," Moore said. Infante was spitting blood as trainers held a towel to his face. "They put a number of stitches in there to close the cut," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "They are going to go scan it and see if his jaw is fractured. Well know more later. Im not going to make any decisions (on roster moves) until we find out whats going on with Omar and well move forward from there. Air Max 97 Silver Bullet For Sale. "He was bleeding tremendously from the cut. I didnt know until they had taken him upstairs that he got hit on the jaw. When we got there they had the towel (over his head) and there was blood all down his shirt. There was no cut on his forehead that I could see." Danny Valencia ran for Infante, who signed a $30.25 million, four-year contract with the Royals in December after hitting .318 last season for Detroit. "He was smoked. Were worried about a concussion, too. It shakes you for sure because its a very ugly sound for somebody to be hit in the face," Yost said. "It was a cool night, but I noticed I broke out in a sweat real quick, so it definitely affected me. Of course, you have a lot of worry about it." Vargas (1-0) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out two in eight-plus innings, lowering his ERA to 1.20 in two starts. He lost his shutout bid when Ben Zobrist homered on his second pitch in the ninth. Greg Holland replaced Vargas and earned his third save, but not before giving up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Matt Joyce. Escobar was 1 for 19 before his bases-loaded double off the left field wall on a 2-2 pitch from Bell with two outs in the seventh. Escobars three RBIs matched his career high. Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain singled to load the bases before Escobars first extra-base hit of the season. Eric Hosmer singled home Aoki, who tripled, in the first inning. The Rays, who have lost seven straight at Kauffman Stadium, have scored three runs in their four losses this year while going 2 for 33 with runners in scoring position during those defeats. Evan Longoria had three of the Rays six hits. NOTES: The Royals placed LHPs Tim Collins (strained left elbow) and Francisley Bueno (sprained left little finger) on the disabled list. They recalled RHP Michael Mariot and LHP Donnie Joseph from Triple-A Omaha. ... The Rays are 3-14 in road openers. They have not won a road opener since 2010 at Baltimore. ... Royals RHP Louis Coleman (bruised right middle finger) threw a bullpen session and could be activated Tuesday, the first day he is eligible to come off the disabled list. ' ' '

Goldfinger Knows Nooothing

 Cache   
Ridicule is a weapon. And some 20 years after the end of World War Two, America was still fighting the Nazis, except using ridicule.

It was called Hogan’s Heroes.

Well, it’s a stretch to call the main supporting “enemy” characters Nazis. Werner Klemperer’s Colonel Klink and John Banner’s Sergeant Schultz were reluctant German soldiers at best. Klink was a father’s disappointment who wanted his ego fed, Schultz seemed to hope the war would end any minute so he could go back to his toy shop. (Banner liked kids in real life; Richard Dawson remembered how Banner would come over and play with his children). But there was a menacing Nazi threat in the plot almost every episode which somehow got ignominiously defeated.

Klink and Schultz were really cartoonish characters, so that’s perhaps why I liked them. Both Klemperer and Banner’s fame came from the series, though Klemperer was also known as the son of outstanding conductor Otto Klemperer. Both actors came to North America to escape Nazism during Hitler’s rise. I suspect their roles (as well those of a number of Jews in the cast, especially Robert Clary) gave them great satisfaction that they posthumously stuck it to Adolf.

Banner was interviewed a number of times while the series was running. Here are a pair of syndicated newspaper columns, the first from the National Enterprise Association of October 1, 1965, and the second from the Los Angeles Times News Service from September 1st the same year.

One more series used Banner’s talents, but it only lasted 13 weeks in 1971. It was The Chicago Teddy Bears, and included Marvin Kaplan, Art Metrano and Huntz Hall in the cast. He was only 63 when died in 1973 of a stomach rupture while back in his birthplace of Vienna.

John Banner Ate His Way to a New Role
By ERSKINE JOHNSON

HOLLYWOOD (NEA)—Jackie Gleason, at 254 pounds, has lost his title as the biggest comedian on television.
The new champ, at 260 pounds, is John Banner.
Banner is the Vienna-born actor who plays the comedy role of Sgt. Hans Schultz in CBS-TV's "Hogan's Heroes." Background of the show is a World War II German prisoner of war camp and Hans is a bungling Nazi sergeant.
Banner "blames" his obesity on the good cooking of his French wife, Christine, who he claims is the world's best cook. "But of course, he adds, "I am a great lover of food. Until I met and married Christine, however, I really didn't know how or what to eat."
Until he met and married Christine, he laughs, "I was the leading man type—I weighed only 178 pounds."
The story of the leading man who became a portly character actor because of his wife's cooking was just one ironic note to be found this day on the set of "Hogan's Heroes."
The company was filming camp compound scenes on a movie back lot where the city of Atlanta was built, and burned, for the movie, "Gone With the Wind." Over the "southern" soil the Nazi flag now waved.
Over "southern" soil prop men also had scattered salt to double for German snow. For the winter scenes members of the cast were huddled in heavy wool overcoats—and perspiration dripped from their faces as if they were melting ice.
As usual in Hollywood, the shooting schedule calling for the outdoor winter scenes fell on one of the year's hottest days. The temperature was 89 degrees. John Banner's background is just as eyebrow lifting. This jovial man now playing a Nazi had fled from his native Vienna to the U.S. when Hitler's army marched into Austria.
In 1942 he joined the U.S. Army, taking his basic training at Atlantic City. While there he posed for an official army recruiting poster (widely used at Easter time) of a GI kneeling in prayer in church with hands clasped and rifle resting on his chest.
The accent John brought from Vienna has limited the acting he learned in Zurich to German, Russian and French characters. He has always wanted to appear in a western because of his theory that many of the first settlers in the west were German, some with heavy accents and some with no knowledge of English at all. "I have talked to many TV and movie producers and directors about this," he says. "They all agree with me but they all tell me, "The public wouldn't accept it! I wonder."


Viewing TV
Sgt. Schultz to Make Debut in CBS Series

By HAL HUMPHREY

HOLLYWOOD—John Banner is a 270-pound Austrian-American actor who has made almost an entire career of playing sputtering comic German soldiers.
His latest movie role was as the German sergeant with James Garner and Eva Marie Saint in "36 Hours." On Sept. 17 the TV audience will see his debut as Sgt. Schultz in the new CBS comedy series, "Hogan's Heroes."
Like many actors, Banner resents being type-cast, but not to the extent that he will pass up a steady job.
"This fellow Schultz on 'Hogan's Heroes' I'm very happy with. It's a miracle I got, the part at all. Everything seemed too perfect," he says.
IT WAS MORE than happenstance which got Banner off on his soldier character. A Czech by the name of Hasek had written a novel called "The Brave Soldier Schweik," which Banner had read.
Schweik was a World War I Austrian private, a hapless fellow who was drawn into trouble in spite of himself. Banner saw Soldier Schweik as a great type to copy as an actor.
"I believe it's wonderful to be able to laugh about militarism," says Banner.
He might have added that it is even necessary to laugh about it every so often if we are to remain sane. Part of his family and many friends were victims of the Hitlerian scourge which swept Austria while he was acting at Schauspielhaus in Zurich, Switzerland, under a two-year contract.
Following the Anschluss, Banner escaped through Switzerland to the United States in 1938.
IT WASN'T long after arriving here that Banner found himself a soldier in the U.S. Air Corps, and in a rare flash of military perspicacity he was made a supply sergeant.
"But this was a different army. I remember how amazed I was at being able to gripe about everything I didn't like and was told I could even write a letter to my congressman. In Germany I would have been shot for just thinking such a thing," adds Banner, laughing.
As Sgt. Schultz in "Hogan's Heroes," Banner is playing a German guard in a prisoner of war camp and becomes an unwilling ally of the American prisoner Col. Hogan (Bob Crane) and his men through fear of being sent to the Russian front.
"SOME PEOPLE ask me how we can be funny about a prison camp in the war, and I say to them how was it possible to write about two little old ladies who killed 12 men and buried them in the basement and make it funny? Well, somebody did, and it was called 'Arsenic and Old Lace.' We will always be able to laugh at someone flaunting authority," Banner maintains.
In addition to his blimp-type German, Banner has played a variety of Russian and Hungarian types. Now that he's been a naturalized American for many years, however, he is a bit piqued at the number of foreign actors imported for roles in American movies.
"For some reason," Banner says quite seriously, "Hollywood would rather take in foreigners. Now I could have played Goldfinger, but not, they brought over Gert Froebe, who did it well, but there were people here to do it.
"I saw 'Moraluri,' and I find they brought over four German actors for that one. Why is that? I can't work in England or most other countries because they don't want American actors," Banner adds, disgustedly.
Couldn't he work in Germany a while, then wait for American producers to rediscover him, I asked facetiously.
"Sure, in Germany I can work, but they don't make pictures there. There is no money," Banner sputters. Of course, if Hogan's Heroes clicks with the 1100 Nielsen rating families, and the sponsors' wives have no serious objection to Sgt. Schultz, Banner can be happy he is an American actor with a Viennese accent he can parlay into German, Russian, Swiss or South Slabovian.

          

Galati Declaration Issued on Sturgeon Conservation in the Danube Basin and Black Sea

 Cache   
Sturgeons are one of the most endangered species on the planet © unknown30 October 2019, Galati (Romania) - The first ever joint discussion of sturgeon conservation issues among representatives from the Danube Basin and the Black Sea countries has resulted in the Galati Declaration on Sturgeon Conservation in the Danube Basin and Black Sea. The Declaration puts forward key messages to decision-makers from all relevant institutions and other stakeholders as a basis for shaping future actions and the way forward to saving sturgeons from extinction. More importantly, the document will serve as an implementation guide for the Pan-European Sturgeon Action Plan under the Bern Convention and EU Habitats Directive.
 
READ GALATI DECLARATION
 
The 120 delegates to the International Conservation of Danube Sturgeons Conference: A Challenge or a Burden, represented fisheries, water and environmental administrations, the scientific community and civil society from Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Canada and the European Commission.
 
"Conference participants confirmed the urgent need for regional collaboration on a long-term fishing ban, effective measures against poaching, limiting bycatch in commercial fisheries and, to ensure that we do not lose the species while trying to save them from extinction, rearing these fish in scientifically controlled facilities in several countries to release them into rivers where populations have crashed or vanished altogether. Other measures highlighted at the meeting are the need of engaging fishing communities in sturgeon conservation and protection of remaining sturgeon habitats for spawning, breeding or overwintering. Only if all relevant stakeholders work together within countries and across borders can these amazing fish be saved from extinction". - Peter Gammeltoft, Chair of the Danube Sturgeon Task Force
 
The conference was jointly organised by "Dunarea de Jos" University of Galati (Research and Development Centre for Sturgeon, Aquatic Habitats and Biodiversity), the DSTF (Danube Sturgeon Task Force), the Romanian Ministry of Water and Forests, the Romanian Ministry of Environment, NAFA (Romanian National Agency for Fisheries and Aquaculture), WSCS (World Sturgeon Conservation Society) and WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), and took place under the patronage of the Romanian Presidency of the EUSDR (EU Strategy for the Danube Region) and the Romanian Academy from October 28-30.

Background
According to the IUCN, today sturgeons are one of the most endangered species on the planet.
WWF-CEE's long-term sturgeon strategy is to re-invigorate and re-establish healthy, stable populations of this key Danube species, and protect the Green Heart of Europe for nature and people. Currently, there is a complete ban of sturgeon fishing in the Danube and the Black Sea. However, larger fish that swim upstream to reproduce still fall prey to poaching because of the high price their caviar and meat fetches on the black market. Sturgeons are long-lived and reproduce only a few times in their life. We must make sure their habitats are protected and they are allowed to grow and thrive, or we risk losing a species which has survived over 200 million years.

US$27M Picasso Painting Purportedly Smuggled By Head Of Spain’s Richest Bank

 Cache   

Image via aijaphoto / Shutterstock.com

Jamie Botín, head of Spain’s wealthiest banking company Grupo Santander, has been accused of smuggling a Pablo Picasso painting worth US$27.4 million out of the country.

The artwork entitled Head of a Young Woman is classified as a cultural treasure by the Spanish government. Botín allegedly attempted to sell the painting outside of the country, resulting in possible jail time and an enormous fine.

El País reports that the Picasso painting was retrieved in 2015 from Botín’s yacht in the French island of Corsica while traveling to Switzerland.

The businessman and billionaire heir claimed that he was not attempting to export the painting. Instead, he argued that the piece was “in transit” to Geneva, and was meant to be safely stored at the Freeport Warehouse complex.

During the trial in Madrid on Monday, Botín stuck by his claims that he never had the intention of selling the painting.

If found guilty, the businessman might end up facing a four-year prison sentence and a €100 million ($111 million) fine.

He requested to put the painting up on public display at the Fundacion Botín in Santander and forsake any future attempts to ship the painting in exchange for a lighter sentence. However, his request did not appeal to the prosecutors.

Prosecutors believe that Botín had solicited the painting to go under the hammer at Christie’s in 2012 but the attempt failed after Spain’s Board of Qualification, Valuation and Export of Spanish Historical Heritage Assets labeled the piece as a rare work done by Picasso after his Rose Period. This led to the piece being classified as non-exportable.

Latter-day Saint Community Reports Surprising Blessings of a 4-year Temple Closure

 Cache   

Children drew pictures of the Frankfurt temple for display during the open house. Juleen Metzner, President Metzner’s wife, accompanied a ward Primary group bused to the open house, and watched children eager to both look for their drawings and get their first views inside the temple.The youth accepted the invitation to prepare names of their own ancestors to take to the temple—sometimes with the help of family members and sometimes with the help of ward members. Youth of the Friedrichsdorf Germany Stake gather outside The Hague Netherlands Temple during the stake’s October 2019 temple trip. Photo courtesy of Mark Harth and the Friedrichsdorf Stake.President Metzner said he and fellow stake members hope to continue similar trips to neighboring temples, even with the Frankfurt temple having returned to operation.The Frankfurt stake’s “temple camp” had youth and leaders camping several miles outside the city for their annual trip. “It has become a place that feels a bit like home to them, and they have been asking if it is possible to go back,” President Metzner said. Three sisters of the Friedrichsdorf Germany Stake pause for a selfie outside the Freiberg Germany Temple during their May 2018 temple trip. Photo courtesy of Mark Harth and the Friedrichsdorf Stake.Angela Cordray, the stake Young Women president, agreed. “Observing the youth participate in these holy ordinances, you see the change in them and their behavior as soon as they enter the house of the Lord,” she said. “They feel the Spirit, they know that the temple is the holiest place here on earth, and they respect and honor it.” Youth of the Frankfurt Germany Stake gather for a photo beside a candle-created image of the temple during an annual stake youth temple camp in Freiberg, Germany. Photo courtesy of Manuel Metzner and the Frankfurt Germany Stake.“Still, it was also a time where, in my observation, many members gained an even deeper appreciation for the spiritual strengths that come from visiting a temple and spending time in the house of the Lord.”“Just the fact that you had to plan ahead, take days off, and prepare for a temple trip had significant effect on the spiritual preparation,” he said.“The sisters not only appreciated being able to attend the temple but also having a couple of days free from their daily routines and worries, being able to just concentrate on the temple,” said Søs Gram, the Frankfurt stake Relief Society president. “The temple presidencies were kind enough to hold a fireside for us, which greatly added to the spiritual experience it is to attend the temple.”Since January 2019, young men and young women qualifying for a limited-use recommend can go to the temple at the start of the calendar year in which they turn 12. (See related article.)The Frankfurt and Friedrichsdorf youth weren’t the only stake members enjoying organized temple outings, as the trips organized for the Relief Society sisters aided those who may not have had an opportunity to go on their own.The Friedrichsborg stake conducted several two-day trips via double-decker buses to the Freiberg temple, with similar buses on three-night trips to The Hague Netherlands Temple—the last one with 85 youth just two days after the conclusion of the Frankfurt temple’s open house.That included Latter-day Saints traveling as families and small groups as well as larger-organized assemblies on a ward, branch, and even stake level to the temples in Freiberg, Germany; Bern, Switzerland; The Hauge, Netherlands; and Paris, France. The first three are just under 450 kilometers (275 miles) from Frankfurt—a one-way drive of more than four hours. For Paris, tack on another 150 kilometers (93 miles) and another hour.President Metzner said the youth “in a very natural and earnest way” took on their new responsibilities—whether it be as witnesses, young women as helpers, or priests as officiators.To help their members in continued temple attendance and worship, the two stakes assisted in bus-chartered trips for Relief Society sisters and youth while encouraged families, wards, and branches in their own organized efforts. Youth from the Friedrichsdorf Germany Stake sit on the grounds of The Hague Netherlands Temple during the stake’s October 2018 temple trip.

President Mark Harth, who presides over the stake in Friedrichsdorf, the town 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Frankfurt where the temple is actually located, called the closure “a time of adaptation and adjustment” and the resulting family, ward and stake temple trips “a learning process.”Because of greater travel distances and challenges for temple patrons in Europe than in much of the United States, most European temples have guest-housing complexes available, which is what the Frankfurt Relief Society groups used. “That gave the sisters the opportunity to spend time together in the evening and during meals as well,” Gram said.President Metzner recalled “many special moments where we saw young people increase in stature and measure” as they were involved in proxy baptisms or confirmations for their own ancestors, including some that the youth had personally known.

New Opportunities for the YouthAdded Juleen Metzner: “These were special experiences, but it also helped us realize how valuable a temple in our area had been.”

Relief Society and ChildrenWhile the Frankfurt Germany Temple closed for more than four years while under extensive renovations, “going to the temple” for the members of the Frankfurt and Friedrichsdorf stakes took on a new meaning, an organized effort, and considerably greater distances.“During the last two years, we were witnessing that we are part of a Church with a living prophet and ongoing revelations,” said Daniel Wiese, the Frankfurt stake’s Young Men president. “The fact that both young women and young men actively participated in the baptism sessions contributed to unique moments and a higher level of spirituality.”Said Wiese: “Bringing the youth together for a couple of days in order to learn, develop spiritual strength, and make friendships always make for a good time. Having the temple as the focus of such conferences lifts all aspects of the whole event.”Like the youth, the children enthusiastically anticipated the Frankfurt temple’s open house prior to rededication.“The youth are very excited that the Frankfurt temple will open its doors again,” Cordray said. “Many of them came to the open house, not just once but as often as it was possible for them to volunteer or bring friends. The willingness to serve and the smiles on their faces testified of their love for the gospel and our Savior Jesus Christ.”“Since these few days away from home and with other sisters meant so much to many, we are considering arranging temple weekends for the sisters even after our temple has been rededicated, thus having the best of two worlds.”In family, ward, and branch temple trips, younger children often traveled with their parents and older siblings. “In the group I happened to be touring with, three 5-year-old girls held hands and stood in front of the mirror in the brides’ room,” she recalled of one tender moment. “They began singing, ‘I Love to See the Temple’—it was very sweet.”Besides traveling to other temples, the youth and children anxiously took important roles in helping prepare for the rededication and reopening of the Frankfurt temple.Cordray said many of the youth initially were drawn to the temple camp because of social opportunities—to go and spend time with friends, be away from home, and participate in camp activities ranking from hikes, sports, and games to spiritual workshops and firesides, Cordray said. During their October 2017 temple trip to The Hague Netherlands Temple, youth from the Friedrichsdorf Germany Stake pause for group photo outside a chapel near the temple. Photo courtesy of Mark Harth and the Friedrichsdorf Stake.“I have great memories of the fun the children had around the temple grounds and to come in touch with the house of the Lord in such a natural and uplifting way,” President Metzner said. “There were also spontaneous activities for the children, which I am certain will have them associate good memories with the trip to the temple.”“We read it to the group of youth before testimony meeting that night, and they literally ‘freaked out’ because they were so happy about these changes,” said Ronja Harth, wife of President Harth.Since January 2018, young women with a limited-use temple recommend can assist with tasks in the baptistery, while ordained priests with a similar recommend can officiate in proxy baptisms by performing or witnessing the ordinance.FRANKFURT, GermanyThe Friedrichsdorf youth received notice of the recent new baptism-witness policy soon after coming out of the temple during their recent trip.Acknowledging the difference regular temple attendance makes in her life and the added strength given to her and her family, Juleen Metzner said, “I hope we will never take this blessing for granted,” adding “we are absolutely thrilled to have our temple back!”“I believe our members deeply missed the closeness of our Frankfurt temple, especially those members for whom it is not easy to travel four to five hours to reach the Freiberg temple or the temples in Switzerland, France, or the Netherlands,” said President Manuel Metzner, president of the Frankfurt Germany Stake.The recent open house allowed the youth their initial view of the new baptistry—a more open area on a underground level excavated during the temple renovation that will accommodate several times more than the 15 to 20 who could squeeze into the smallish, main-floor baptistry in the original temple.The Frankfurt stake sponsored a pair of similar Relief Society trips—one to Freiberg and one to the Bern Switzerland Temple. And the Frankfurt stake’s annual youth excursions became “temple camps” outside of Freiberg.“When you ask them afterwards, ‘What was your favorite part of the trip?’ they all say: ‘The temple, doing baptisms,’” she added.He expressed appreciation not only for adults assisting with the camp experience but to the Freiberg temple leaders and Freiberg ward for their continued help.And as announced just prior to October 2019 general conference, anyone with a current recommend can serve as witnesses for baptisms in the temple.

These 4 European countries still have a wealth tax. Here's how it's working out for them.

  • Today, four European countries have a wealth tax: Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium. Here's how its working out for them.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

The wealth tax has become the subject of fierce debate as progressive Democratic candidates in the 2020 election champion it as a mechanism to redistribute riches. They also see it as a way to curb the economic power of the wealthiest Americans. Sen. Elizabeth Warren first proposed it and Sen. Bernie Sanders later followed.

Warren is pushing for a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million, and tripled to 6% on fortunes over $1 billion. Sanders went farther with a more aggressive plan: He wants to levy a 2% wealth tax on households with net worths over $32 million and gradually increase it to 8% on those over $1 billion.

Though it's a relatively new proposal in the US, many European nations had already adopted it decades before. 

The wealth tax is similar to a property tax. But instead of taxing real estate, it covers wealth in all forms: stocks, cash, jewelry, yachts, a Pablo Picasso painting — really any asset that could be appraised a monetary value.

Back in 1990, around a dozen European countries had a wealth tax, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Today, only four European countries have it: Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium. 

Most European governments eliminated the tax because it was problematic in design and enforcement, and France was the latest to scrap it in 2017. They often hit people with plenty of assets but little cash on hand to pay the taxman.

"They can be really difficult to administer and ensure even a moderate compliance rate," Daniel Bunn, the director of Global Projects at the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, told Business Insider.

He added that it became difficult for governments to justify the high administrative cost of enforcement as the rich were able to move assets and capital out of the country into lower-taxed jurisdictions, often within Europe.

Instead, Bunn said, European countries did away with it and doubled down on enforcing income taxes among others.

All together, European wealth taxes generally brought in around 0.2% of GDP in revenues, a study from the Cato Institute noted.

Still, four European governments are relying on wealth taxes to generate revenue. Here's how its working out for them.

Spain has a wealth tax levied on fortunes above €700,000, or just over $774,000, starting at a 0.2% rate.

Denis Doyle UEFA/UEFA via Getty Images

Spain first introduced a wealth tax (otherwise known as Patrimonio) in 1977, two years after the death of its authoritarian leader Francisco Franco. 

It kept the tax until 2008 when the global financial crisis threw the Spanish economy into a tailspin. The tax was temporarily reinstated three years later in 2011 to boost public finances, but the national government later decided to make it permanent again. 

Spain now taxes fortunes above €700,000 at 0.2%, which gradually increases to 2.5% on net worth above €10.7 million depending on the region. People living in the Spanish capital of Madrid are exempt from the tax.

Its never been a substantial generator of tax money for the Spanish government. Data from the OECD shows that a net wealth tax on individuals made up 0.55 percent of all tax revenues in 2017.



Norway collects a wealth tax both at the municipal and the national level, starting at 1.48 million krone, or $174,000.

Norway's wealth tax was first introduced in 1892. The central government levies a tax rate of 0.15% while municipalities impose a 0.7% rate, bringing the maximum to 0.85%.

Only wealth above 1.48 million krona, or roughly $174,000, is taxed. That figure is doubled for married couples.

A 2012 study from Norwegian researchers reported that average wealth per household totaled 1.6 million krona, or just over $166,000, indicating that most of the population paid some form of the tax.

The amount of revenue generated has largely been the same over the last two decades. The OECD reported the wealth tax constituted 1.1% of all wealth tax revenues in Norway in 2017.



Switzerland first implemented its wealth tax in 1840. The rate varies by canton, or state, as the central government does not collect the tax.

Athanasios Gioumpasis/Getty Images

Switzerland first levied a wealth tax in 1840 and its been a pillar of their tax structure since. They're self-reported and paid annually, with no institutional tracking of wealth. Tax authorities can only access personal bank information if a person is suspected of a crime.

The country has a decentralized tax system, and the rate varies around its 26 cantons. But it ranges between 0.3% and 1% of taxpayers' net worth. They tend to be highest in the French-speaking regions of the west and lower in the German-speaking cantons of central Switzerland.

The tax-free threshold for a married couple without children is between 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,370) to 250,000 Swiss francs ($251,856). "The wealth tax thus affects much of the middle class in addition to the wealthiest families," one study on the Swiss wealth tax found.

Compared to the other three European countries, the Swiss wealth tax has generated consistent revenue so far in the 21st century and it brought the largest share. OECD data shows that wealth taxes made up 3.6% of all Swiss tax revenue in 2017, and it's been above 3% since 2000.

    2020/21 application deadline: 30 April 2020

    • Evidence of exceptional academic achievement (normally a 1st Class Honours Degree)
    • Commitment to return to their home country on completion of postgraduate programme
    • Evidence of the ability and commitment to making a significant contribution to their home country on their return
    • Full understanding of the costs involved in coming to study and live in the UK
    • Evidence of strong motivation and initiative to secure funds to cover the remainder of the costs involved

Цель этого перечня состоит в том, чтобы способствовать сохранению исторической застройки городов и архитектурного разнообразия Швейцарии, а также содействовать устойчивому городскому планированию. О важности списка говорит то, что решения о внесении изменений принимаются Федеральным советом.

    Многие из включенных в список ISOS городков представляют собой настоящие архитектурные «жемчужины», но до сих пор остаются неизвестными широкой публике. Федеральное управление культуры в сотрудничестве со Швейцарским туристическим офисом решило исправить эту несправедливость и отобрало два десятка городков, которые обязательно стоит посетить тем, кто путешествует по Швейцарии.

    В число самых красивых швейцарских деревень вошли Андельфинген (кантон Цюрих), Овернье (Невшатель), Бауэн (Ури), Кастазенья (Граубюнден), Дарданьи (Женева), Эрленбах-им-Зимменталь (Берн), Эрматинген (Тургау), Эрнен (Вале), Джорнико (Тичино), Халлау (Шаффхаузен), Ле-Пон (Во), Лесок (Фрибург), Маланс (Граубюнден), Моркоте (Тичино), Плежуз (Юра), Рюэггисберг (Берн), Сен-Сафорен (Во), Зент (Граубюнден), Соацца (Граубюнден) и Троген (Аппенцелль-Ауссерроден).

    Каждая из двадцати отобранных деревень является типичной для своего региона. Так, тичинские Моркоте и Джорнико напоминают исторические центры городов Пьемонта и Ломбардии. Моркоте – это бывший рыбацкий поселок, раскинувшийся на берегу озера Лугано, а расположенный чуть выше Джорнико знаменит своими старинными романскими церквями с высокими колокольнями, сложенными из серых камней.

    Граубюнденские коммуны пленяют своими альпийскими панорамами. Одним из самых живописных мест кантона считается расположенная у итальянской границы Кастазенья, которую окружают крупнейшие каштановые рощи в Европе. Небольшие каменные дома, стоящие вдоль проселочной дороги, раньше использовались для сушки каштанов, а сегодня открыты для публики.

    Граубюнден также славится памятниками эпохи барокко. Главной архитектурной особенностью Зента, например, является фигурный фронтон в барочном стиле, украшающий крыши домов. Эта деталь появилась в конце XVIII века благодаря тирольским мастерам. В долине Мезольчина, в окружении гор, спряталась Соацца, где можно увидеть прекрасную церковь Сан-Мартино, перестроенную в духе барокко в XVII веке. А в Малансе стоит побывать, чтобы посетить замок Ботмар, вокруг которого разбит один из самых красивых барочных садов Швейцарии.

    Городки Романдии отличаются французским флером: Овернье с его разновцетными фасадами домов и маленькими площадями с фонтанами, Дарданьи с замком с четырьмя угловыми башнями и, конечно, идиллический Сен-Сафорен, который находится в самом центре виноградников Лаво, внесенных в список Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО. Заметная архитектурная деталь Сен-Сафорена – аркады – появилась из-за необходимости защитить жителей от природных катаклизмов. Ранее городку угрожали оползни, поэтому власти решили возводить фасады домов на аркадах.

    Если же вы хотите полюбоваться историческими альпийскими шале, то отправляйтесь в немецкую часть Швейцарии. К ярким памятникам деревянного зодчества относятся музей Agensteinhaus в Эрленбах-им-Зимментале, мост через реку Тур в Андельфингене, шале в Эрнене и типичные бернские усадьбы с потемневшими деревянными фасадами в Рюэггисберге.

    Добавим, что 20 самых красивых деревень Швейцарии расположены вдоль знаменитого туристического маршрута Grand Tour de Suisse, который проходит через 22 озера, 12 объектов Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО, 5 альпийских перевалов и 4 языковых региона.

    How extreme events impact Earth’s surface: reports from the 6th EGU Galileo conference

     Cache   

    Throughout the year, EGU hosts a number of meetings, workshops, and conferences for the geoscience community. While the EGU’s annual General Assembly brings more than 15,000 scientists together under one roof, the EGU Galileo Conferences allows a smaller number of scientists to discuss and debate issues at the forefront of their discipline. In this blog post, the organisers of the 6th Galileo Conference “Perturbations of earth surface dynamics caused by extreme events” reflect on a week of insightful presentations and discussions on rare and catastrophic events. “How do extreme events perturb Earth surface dynamics?” This question kept us busy during the entire week of the 6th EGU Galileo Conference “Perturbations of earth surface dynamics caused by extreme events”, which took place in Nepal from 13-19 October 2019. As organisers, we had aimed for a slightly unusual conference venue. We kept the nice hotels to a minimum of two nights and took the participants out to the Bhote Kosi for some camping for the remainder of the week to foster discussions and idea exchange. The Bhote Kosi valley, about four hours’ drive north east of Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu, was heavily impacted by the April 2015 Gorkha earthquake and a subsequent glacier lake outburst flood event in 2016. This valley still today carries the signs of these earlier events in the form of large landslides, unstable slopes, and reworked river beds. As such, the valley serves as an ideal natural laboratory to better understand and quantify how the Earth’s surface responds to such perturbations. The Bhote Kosi had been a basecamp for a number of us studying natural hazards during the multiple field campaigns organised after the Gorkha earthquake, and this conference was a great opportunity to share what we have learned over the past years while directly illustrating the conference topics. What seemed easy in the early days of planning did not come without inevitable doubts as the conference came closer. How do we make sure we have enough tents for everyone, how do we deal with the frequent power cuts, how do we make sure to cater enough local beer to thirsty geoscientists, and what if everyone contracted food poisoning? Fortunately, 60 participants, including ten Nepali colleagues and many early career scientists, blindly followed us without much afterthought and we were off for a busy and promising week. The talks and posters covered most extreme event triggers: from earthquakes to volcanic eruptions and from wildfires to storms and tsunamis. These presentations provided food for thought for the geomorphologist, the geochemist, and the seismologist alike. Nepal, with the aftermath of the Gorkha earthquake, was well represented in these presentations, but many other parts of the world were covered as well. Last day at @EuroGeosciences Galileo Conference #EGUNepal. Check out our poster hall! pic.twitter.com/4ZMkMyScTU — Kristy Guerin (@KristyGuerin) October 18, 2019 Overall, this conference demonstrated the role of extreme events as geomorphic actors, able to shape landscapes and affect biogeochemical cycles. This conference also highlighted the large range of possible geomorphic responses, both in terms of magnitude and spatial extent, suggesting that the question of how these extreme events should be defined (are they large or are they rare events?) should ultimately be left to the investigators. It is however clear that in terms of geomorphic impact, an extreme event should lead to an observable perturbation above a, to-be defined, background variability, and be followed by a recovery period that leads to an old or new steady-state. As such, extreme events are not created equal and future research is needed to understand why such a range of responses are encountered. Conference attendees had the opportunity to discuss questions and topics at the forefront of their field, from ethics in science to international cooperation. (Credit: Monique Fort)  Time for discussion also allowed us to debate on the morality of post-disaster scientific work. We concluded that basic research questions related to these events need to be pursued and frequently require immediate mobilisation of scientific equipment and personal. However, this discussion also highlighted the need for clear and transparent international coordination so as to not interfere with relief efforts and avoid being perceived as greedy ambulance-chasing scientists. This important discussion was backed by input from a large Nepali delegation, providing an insight into how they had perceived these questions directly after the recent earthquake. Further discussions focused on the commonalities of different extreme events and the possibility to define a common framework that would allow us to compare the geomorphic impact of an earthquake to that of a storm or a wildfire. Finally, this conference allowed us to lay the foundation blocks for future international coordination efforts. While the exact contours remain to be defined, all participants emphasised the need to prioritise research questions and resources in the case of rapid response efforts. These efforts require clear coordination with affected countries and funding bodies, but for instance also encourage scientific actors to agree on common publication strategies upfront. Conference participants tour the Bhote Kosi valley to learn more about how extreme events can shape landscapes. (Credit: Monique Fort)  In the middle of this busy schedule, a day of field excursion provided a welcome change. From small to large, the Bhote Kosi has it all: boulders, landslides, debris flows etc… Driving up the valley all the way to the Nepal-China border provides a humbling experience of how these idyllic landscapes can be turned into deadly traps in the blink of an eye. With closer scrutiny it becomes obvious that the whole landscape has been shaped by a myriad of these catastrophic events, directly questioning the notion of extremes. After six days of presentations, posters, and late night discussions, it was time to close this intense, yet educational week. In the end there weren’t too many power cuts, no one got sick, most of us managed to shower with hot water and only a few reported spiders in their tents. In line with the local Nepali customs, the end of the conference was celebrated by inspired dancing until late at night when the first shuttles back to the airport started to take people back to Kathmandu. By Maarten Lupker, ETH Zürich, Switzerland Acknowledgments This conference was jointly organised with the Nepal Geological Society (NGS), without which this week would have never existed. While many people were involved, we would like to extend special thanks to Basanta Raj Adhikari and Ananta Prasad Gajurel from Tribhuvan University as well as the former president of NGS, Kabi Raj Paudyal and the present one Ram Prasad Ghimire. Bhairab Sitaula also provided invaluable help in all logistical aspects of this conference. The conference was also co-sponsored by the US National Science Foundation, which provided overseas travel grants. Support from DiGOS & GFZ Potsdam were also greatly appreciated.

    Bridging the Week by Gary DeWaal: October 21 to November 1, and November 4, 2019, (CFTC Settlement Undone; Aiding and Abetting Liability Potentially Broader; Spoofing = Wire Fraud)

     Cache   

    Two weeks ago, a federal court of appeals sided with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ruling that a district court could not require the testimony of three commissioners and various staff to assess whether the agency committed civil contempt in connection with its handling of an enforcement settlement with two food giants. In response, the district court confirmed it would solely evaluate the existing record to determine whether to grant the defendants’ motion for a contempt finding against the Commission and sanctions; however, it also set aside the settlement consent order and instructed the parties to propose a trial date – although they could also propose new resolution terms. Last week, a law firm filed its own lawsuit against the CFTC for the agency’s non-provision of documents related to the settlement in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Unrelatedly, the House Committee on Agriculture proposed to reauthorize the CFTC for another five years and to expand the reach of potential aiding and abetting liability to reckless acts in addition to purposeful acts. As a result, the following matters are covered in this week’s edition of Bridging the Week:

    • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request (includes Legal Weeds);
    • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion (includes My View);
    • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge (includes Policy and Politics); and more.

    Video Version:

    Article Version:  

    Briefly:

    • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request: On October 23, the federal court judge in Chicago presiding over the 2015 enforcement action by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission against Kraft Foods Group, Inc. and Mondelez Global, LLC set aside the settlement agreement among the parties confirmed in an August 14, 2019 consent order. The CFTC originally charged the defendants with manipulating and attempting to manipulate December 2011 wheat futures contracts and cash wheat.

    The Hon. John Blakey revoked the settlement order following a decision by a federal court of appeals to grant, in part, relief requested by the CFTC in a mandamus petition precluding him from requiring the Chairman of the CFTC, two commissioners, and various employees of the Commission to provide testimony in a contempt proceeding against the CFTC and the individuals. Previously, the defendants requested that the CFTC and the individuals be held in contempt because they claimed the CFTC and the individuals had violated terms of a mutual gag agreement contained in the consent order when the Commission and two commissioners issued statements contemporaneously with publication of the order. The defendants also sought sanctions against the CFTC.

    Under the agreement, defendants agreed to remit a fine of US $16 million and not to violate various provisions of law relating to manipulation, wash sales, and speculative limits. The consent order made clear, however, that nothing in the order reflected an agreement or determination that the defendants violated any provision of applicable law. (Click here for details regarding this dispute in the article “Contempt and Sanctions Hearing Against the CFTC Arising From Manipulation Complaint Settlement Delayed to October 2” in the September 2, 2019 edition of Between Bridges.)

    The US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held that only the CFTC could potentially be held in contempt for violating the gag order and not any individuals, and that the determination of whether the CFTC was in contempt should be made by Judge Blakey solely on the basis of the existing record without any consideration of collateral evidence, including the testimony of any CFTC commissioners or employees.

    In response, Judge Blakey issued a docket entry noting that he would resolve defendants’ motion for contempt, sanctions and other relief relying solely on the existing record. He also set aside the consent order on the grounds that the “factual record” does not support a proposition that the parties agreed to settle their dispute with an understanding that the settlement terms were binding on the Commission but not on agents of the Commission, including commissioners and staff. Additionally, Judge Blakey requested that the CFTC and defendants renew their motions for summary judgment and propose a trial date during a hearing on November 20. Judge Blakey indicated that the parties may still try to settle this matter, however.

    Separately, the New York-based law firm of Kobre & Kim sued the CFTC in a federal court in NY, claiming that the Commission failed to produce documents related to the CFTC-Kraft/Mondelez settlement that it requested under the Freedom of Information Act. The law firm claims that it requested the documents because the original settlement failed to contain any findings of fact or conclusions of law, and thus the CFTC has left “the public in the dark” regarding its current theory of manipulation. According to the law firm, “[i]n effect, the CFTC negotiated a private resolution that left the industry without any intelligible guidance and with a potential misimpression that the legal theories asserted against [Kraft/Mondelez] had a sound legal basis.” (Click here to access a copy of Kobre & Kim’s Complaint.)

    Legal Weeds: In its petition for mandamus, the CFTC also requested that the civil contempt proceeding against it be ended. However, the Court of Appeals rejected this request, claiming that if a decision ultimately is rendered adverse to the CFTC, the Commission can appeal that outcome in the ordinary course. The Court of Appeals also declined to transfer the contempt proceeding to a different judge as asked by the CFTC, saying that Judge Blakey was in the “best position to decide as an initial matter” if a contempt determination was warranted.

    Following the Court of Appeals’ decision, Judge Blakey indicated that not only would he be considering the CFTC’s possible violation of the consent order, but also possible violations of the court’s prior orders, “including this Court’s orders making the settlement conference discussions private in conformity with traditional trial court practice.”

    Judge Blakey previously had suggested that the Commission as well as individual commissioners and staff might be subject to criminal contempt determinations. However he withdrew this threat on September 19. (Click here to access the relevant docket entry at 336.)

    Judge Blakey’s pronouncement on the wide scope of his contempt determination coupled with Kobre & Kim’s FOIA lawsuit against the CFTC on Halloween serve to underscore how the Commission’s initial handling of its settlement with Kraft and Mondelez will continue to haunt the agency for some time.

    • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion: The House of Representatives' Agriculture Committee proposed a bill to reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission through fiscal year 2025 that includes a material expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability. Currently, under relevant law, any persons who willfully aids and abets a violation of law can be held liable for such violation as a principal (Click here to access 7 U.S.C. § 13c(a)). As proposed by the Agriculture Committee, any person who recklessly provides substantial assistance to such a violation could also be liable as a principal. 

    Additionally, the proposed reauthorization bill would (1) amend core principles for contract markets and swap execution facilities to require the CFTC to adopt rules detailing trader data and other information such trading venues must be able to access from cash markets and other data sources related to contracts referencing digital commodities and (2) expand the reach of the CFTC’s enforcement authority outside the United States to circumstances where certain prohibited activities (e.g., fraud and manipulation) “have or would have a reasonably foreseeable substantial effect within the United States.” 

    As proposed, the CFTC would also be required to adopt policies to safeguard proprietary information it receives whether through investigations or otherwise proportionate to the “level of sensibility of the information” and limit access to the information to “appropriate” Commission staff.

    My View: In light of the CFTC’s relentless prosecution of Jitesh Thakkar for developing software used by Flash Crash Spoofer Navinder Sarao despite the dropping of parallel criminal charges by the Department of Justice, the proposed expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability for non-registrants is a significant red flag. Potentially holding programmers of futures trading, advisory or surveillance systems liable for the non-intentional development of software that might be used for illicit purposes could have a material chilling effect on software development for legitimate purposes and inhibit US leadership in creating new fintech innovations for the derivatives industry. (Click here for background regarding the CFTC’s pursuit of Mr. Thakkar in the article “Department of Justice Declines to Retry Alleged Programmer for Flash Crash Spoofer” in the April 28, 2019, edition of Bridging the Week.)

    • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge: A federal district court in Chicago declined to dismiss criminal charges alleging violations of wire fraud prohibitions against James Vorley and Cedric Chanu related to alleged spoofing trading activities on the Commodity Exchange, Inc. from at least December 2009 through November 2011. Both individuals were formerly associated with Deutsche Bank and were named in a criminal complaint filed in July 2018. (Click here for background in the article “Alleged Spoofer Exonerated in Criminal Trial Agrees in Principle to CFTC Settlement; Two More Purported Spoofers Criminally Charged” in the August 5, 2018 edition of Bridging the Week.) The defendants were charged both with wire fraud (Click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1343) and with conspiracy to commit wire fraud (click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1349).

    ​The defendants had argued that they could not be convicted of wire fraud because a violation under the relevant statute requires the making of affirmative misrepresentations and spoofing trading does not entail false statements. According to defendants, their orders – even if spoofing orders – entailed no representations beyond their stated terms and solely communicated an implied commitment that if their orders were accepted before cancelled, they would be filled according to their terms.

    The Hon. John Tharp, Jr., the presiding judge in this matter, disagreed with defendants’ arguments. He wrote that omitting or concealing material information, even absent a duty to disclose, constitutes a violation of wire fraud prohibitions “if the omission was intended to induce a false belief and action to the advantage of the schemer and the disadvantage of the victim.” Judge Tharp claimed that when orders are placed with an intent to cancel them before execution in connection with spoofing, the intent is to create a “false belief about the supply or demand for a commodity” so that a market moves in a direction to execute resting orders of the spoofer on one side of the market to the detriment of other traders on the other side of the market who are not knowledgeable of the spoofer’s trading intent.

    The court also rejected defendants’ argument that the wire fraud statute is unconstitutionally vague. Judge Tharp wrote that spoofing is similar to pump and dump schemes that have frequently been prosecuted under wire fraud prohibitions.

    The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that contained an express spoofing prohibition was not signed into law until July 21, 2010, and the anti-spoofing provision was not effective until July 16, 2011. Thus, the DOJ could not prosecute defendants utilizing the prohibition for the overwhelming majority of their purportedly illicit spoofing transactions. (Click here for background regarding the effective date of the anti-spoofing prohibition and other provisions of Dodd-Frank.)

    Policy and Politics: In February 2019, the Futures Industry Association filed a friend of the court brief in this matter arguing that prosecuting defendants for wire fraud (and not spoofing) raised issues of concern to the business community because such action implied that orders entered without an intent of execution for any reason constituted fraudulent statements to the marketplace. However, observed FIA, such a view would challenge “the vitality of the established legal precept” that market participants have no obligation to disclose any information in connection with open orders including their intentions regarding such orders. According to FIA, criminalization of “a market participant’s failure to disclose trading intentions opens the door for arbitrary prosecutions and vexatious private claims.” (Click here to access a copy of the FIA filing.) The US Chamber of Commerce, the Bank Policy Institute and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association made similar arguments in a friend of the court brief they also filed in this matter.

    More Briefly:

    • CFTC Chair Says Position Limits Proposal Coming Soon; Head of DSIO Says Thematic Reviews Coming Soon Too: In a kick-off speech before FIA Expo in Chicago last week, Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said the Commission will propose new position limits rules within the next few months. He also said that, among his other objectives, were issuance of a framework for principles-based regulation generally, principles guidance for digital assets, enforcement penalty guidance, and a cross-border rule for swap dealers. Although he associated no specific time frames with his other objectives, Dr. Tarbert quoted Thomas Edison in saying that “vision without execution is hallucination.”

    Separately, Joshua Sterling, Director of the CFTC’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight, indicated that his Division staff would soon commence targeted thematic reviews of swap dealers and commodity pool operators. In a speech before the Alternative Investment Management Association, Mr. Sterling said the purpose of the review would be “both to mitigate the potential for blind spots in our oversight and enhance our engagement with registrants.” According to Mr. Sterling, firms subject to reviews are those likely “to have a significant impact” on derivatives markets and each review would be completed onsite within five business days. The objective of the reviews is not to refer matters to the Division of Enforcement, he said, but to provide general guidance to the industry and determine potential rulemakings.

    • US and Non-US Companies Charged by CFTC for Acting as Unregistered FCMs: XBT Corp. SARL d/b/a First Global Credit (FGC) settled charges brought both by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission that if offered and sold investment products to US person in return for payments in bitcoin in violation of certain legal provisions. According to both regulators, FGC is a Switzerland-based company that maintains a website and platform to solicit customers to trade futures and securities products.

    The CFTC alleged that, from March 2016 through July 2017, FGC solicited and allowed US persons to trade futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Globex platform without being registered as a futures commission merchant. The SEC charged that from 2014 through 2019, the firm offered and sold instruments based on US and internationally listed stocks to US persons that did not meet certain minimum financial standards by qualifying as “eligible contract participants” under applicable law (Click here to access a definition of an ECP at 7 U.S.C. §1a(18)). However, as these instruments constituted security-based swaps, they could only be sold to nonqualified US persons if the instruments were subject to an effective registration statement and were traded on a national securities exchange. FGC met neither of these requirements, alleged the SEC.

    FGC settled with the CFTC and SEC by agreeing to pay each a US $100,000 fine. FGC additionally agreed to remit to the SEC US $32,952 as disgorgement and interest.

    Unrelatedly, Upstream Energy Services LLC, a Texas-based crude oil and natural gas advisory firm, was also charged by the CFTC with operating as an FCM without registration. The CFTC claimed that between April 2017 and September 2018, the firm accepted orders for futures and options on behalf of two clients owned by the same person, and entered the orders and carried the resulting trades in its own trading accounts. Upstream extended credit to the clients for margin but was subsequently reimbursed by the clients for Upstream’s costs; Upstream also received fees from the clients for its trading services. Upstream agreed to pay the CFTC a US $75,000 fine to resolve its purported violation.

    • No Action Granted by SEC to NY Digital Trust Company to Settle Equities Transactions Without Clearing Agency Registration: Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission granted Paxos Trust Company, LLC no action relief to act as a clearing agency for two years without registering as a clearing agency in connection with a private and permissioned distributed ledger system designed to facilitate simultaneous delivery vs. payment securities settlements. As a condition of its no action relief, Paxos will provide its offering to no more than seven participants; limit its services to a de minimus amount of activity; and solely settle equities that meet certain criteria. Paxos’s proposed settlement system will piggyback on existing structures by creating and utilizing digital representations of cash wired by broker-dealer participants to a Paxos bank account and digital representations of securities transferred by the same broker-dealers from their The Depository Trust Company accounts to a Paxos DTC account. According to a press release issued by Paxos, Credit Suisse and Société Générale will be among the first participants to use Paxos’s settlement services (Click here to access Paxos’s press release).

    In other legal and regulatory developments involving Fintech:

    • DOJ Relies on Bitcoin Block Chain Analysis for Indictment of Leader and Users of Darknet Child Pornography Website: The Department of Justice quarterbacked the indictment of the founder of a darknet child pornography website – Welcome to Video ("WTV") – by a grand jury in the District of Columbia, and the arrest and charging of 337 site users nationwide and abroad. According to the DOJ, by tracing transactions on the bitcoin blockchain, it was able to identify the site’s alleged leader – Jong Woo Son — and the location of the site’s server’s physical location in South Korea. With analytic help from a private company, Chainalysis, DOJ was also able to identify the exchanges on which bitcoin was initially purchased for use on WTV, thus allowing the DOJ to identify potential users by relying on the exchanges’ know-your-customer information. (Click here to access background by Chainalysis.)

    • CFTC Chair Stresses Need for Principles-Based Regulation to Accommodate Fintech and Announces Elevation of LabCFTC to Operating Office: Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s, indicated that innovation in the derivatives industry can best be encouraged by providing a “principles-approach to regulation.” Contemporaneously, during a presentation at the beginning at the CFTC’s Fintech Forward 2019 conference on October 24, Dr. Tarbert announced the elevation of LabCFTC to an independent operating office within the Commission (as opposed to a part of the Office of General Counsel) and the CFTC’s new membership in the Global Financial Innovation Network. GFIN is an organization of global regulators that encourages cooperation in the development, execution and distribution of new technologies. In connection with the Fintech Forward conference, LabCFTC also issued a primer on Artificial Intelligence (click here to access). The Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation  and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency also announced they joined GFIN last week (click here for background).

    • OCC Loses Effort to Have Scope of DFS Judgment Limiting National Fintech Charters Narrowed: A federal court in New York City granted the New York Department of Financial Services’ request for an order precluding the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency from approving fintech applicants who do not accept deposits for national bank charters. Both parties had agreed to the general framework of a proposed order mandating such outcome, but OCC had sought to limit its application solely to fintech applicants that had a nexus to New York State. Previously, the same court had ruled that NYS had standing to bring its legal action. (Click here for background in the article “Federal Court Opens Spigot Permitting NY DFS Lawsuit to Proceed Against Federal Bank Regulator for Planning to Issue Fintech Charters” in the May 5, 2019 edition of Bridging the Week.) In September 2019, a federal court in the District of Columbia ruled that the Conference of State Bank Supervisors had no standing to bring an analogous action against OCC, writing that the organizations' claims were unripe as, to date, no fintech company has applied for a relevant charter. (Click here for a copy of the relevant court decision.)

    • Purported Faulty Block Trade Reporting, Prearranged Trading to Obtain Exchange Incentive Fees and Failure to Supervise Result in NYMEX Disciplinary Action Settlements: McNamara Options Ltd. agreed to pay a fine of US $70,000 to resolve charges brought by the New York Mercantile Exchange that it failed to accurately reflect execution times on multiple block trade submissions and failed to report such block trades within required time frames. NYMEX also alleged that the firm did not “properly” train its employees regarding its requirements to accurately reflect the execution time of block trades on submissions. 

    Unrelatedly, Ze Qian, a nonmember, resolved an unrelated disciplinary action by NYMEX that claimed he prearranged the execution of transactions involving steel futures between an account he traded for his employer and an account owned and controlled by another person to enable Mr. Qian’s employer to receive trade credits from a market-maker incentive program administered by the exchange. To resolve this matter, Mr. Qian agreed to pay a fine of US $5,000 and serve a two-year all CME Group exchanges’ access ban. 

    Additionally, three nonmembers were all fined either US $40,ooo or US $50,000 by the Commodity Exchange, Inc. or NYMEX and permanently barred from accessing CME Group exchanges for trading for engaging in spoofing trading. The three persons are Shiv Agarwal, Krishna Lakani and In-Ho Hwang. Finally, Boston Metal Co., Ltd was also sanctioned US $40,000 for failing to supervise one of its employees who allegedly engaged in spoofing trading and for not ensuring that each of its traders used a unique Tag 50 identification when placing electronic orders.

    • Two Affiliated Broker-Dealers Agree to US $15 Million Sanction for Purported AML Program and Supervisory Deficiencies: BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and BNP Paribas Prime Brokerage, Inc. agreed collectively to pay a fine of US $15 million to resolve allegations by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority that, from February 25, 2013 through March 31, 2017, they failed to maintain and administer an adequate anti-money laundering program. Among other matters, FINRA claimed that until 2016, the firms did not conduct surveillance of penny stock transactions or transactions outside of traditional exchanges despite the heightened risks of such transactions including fraud, money laundering and lack of registration of such stocks with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The firms reviewed wire transfers involving US dollars, acknowledged FINRA, but purportedly failed to monitor wires involving foreign currencies or any wires to assess whether they involved high-risk jurisdictions or entities. FINRA claimed that during the relevant time, some employees of the firms escalated concerns regarding the adequacy of their AML program to senior management; however, said FINRA the firms “did not act in a timely manner to address the deficiencies its personnel identified.” FINRA indicated it considered the firms’ remediation efforts which commenced during its review in computing the amount of the firms’ fine.

    • Trader Accused by SEC of Making Misstatements Regarding Bond Pricing Asks for Summary Judgement Claiming Practices Were Industry Norm: James Im, who was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2017 for purportedly engaging in fraud by misrepresenting information related to commercial mortgage-backed securities he sold to customers, supported a motion for summary judgment in his favor by arguing that while his statements may have been misleading, they were not materially misleading and, in any case, none of his customers relied on them. This is because, claimed Mr. Im, none of Mr. Im’s customers would have considered his statements in assessing the value of the bonds he sold or whether to purchase them as they engaged with him solely on a principal to principal basis and he never acted on their behalf as an agent. Moreover, said Mr. Im, at no time did he act with scienter or recklessly because his misstatements were solely “negotiating positions [and] nothing more”, and “market participants understood that such misstatements were not uncommon.” Mr. Im was previously co-head of the CMBS desk at Nomura Securities International, Inc. (Click here for a copy of the SEC’s original complaint against Mr. Im.)

    11/07 Links Pt1: Ron Prosor: For UNRWA, the party is over; Shin Bet: We thwarted over 450 terror attacks in the past year; Apartheid on Temple Mount: Police Block Jews from Using Drinking Fountains

     Cache   
    From Ian:

    Ron Prosor: For UNRWA, the party is over
    When I heard that United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East Commissioner Pierre Krahenbuhl resigned, I was shocked. After all, the UN does not have the best track record when it comes to investigating corruption allegations against its own agencies, let alone when it comes to the UNRWA, which until recently had airtight immunity from criticism.

    For 70 years, UNRWA has been something of a separate entity in the UN, one dedicated solely to the issue of Palestinian "refugees," alongside the agency that handles all other refugees – the UNHCR. But unlike the former UNRWA never even tried to solve the refugee problem and seemed dedicated to perpetuating it.

    Case in point: When UNRWA was founded in 1949, there were around 700,000 Palestinian refugees in the world. Today, their number stands at 5.7 million.

    But UNRWA's data must always be taken with a grain of salt, as they tend to artificially inflate. A census that took place in Lebanon in 2017 found that 300,000 people included in the agency's data simply do not exist and that the true number of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon was 66% smaller than stated on its reports.

    At the same time, the budgets appropriated to UNRWA put the UN's actual refugee agency to shame.

    Not only is UNRWA's budget per-refugee four times greater than that of any other refugee, it employs 30,000 people. The UNRCR, which deals with 70 million refugees, employs only 10,000 people.

    But it seems that UNRWA's party is coming to an end.
    Head of Shin Bet: We thwarted over 450 terror attacks in the past year
    Head of Shin Bet Nadav Argaman claimed on Thursday that the Shin Bet thwarted over 450 terror attacks in the past year. Argaman spoke at the Unmanned Systems Conference, UVID 2019, initiated by Israel Defense.

    "We are an agency with excellent people, the best technology and synergy within the agency and with Israeli security authorities, which allows us to have an edge on very challenging enemies," Argaman said. "All that allowed us to thwart over 450 terror attacks in the past year and try to provide the citizens of Israel with safe and peaceful daily life without knowing what happens behind the scene."

    Meanwhile, the IDF mapped on Thursday the house of Kassem Shabli, one of the terrorists who carried out an attack near the West Bank town of Dolev in August, in which 17-year-old Rina Shnerb was murdered.

    The mapping was done in order to prepare for the demolition of the house in Kfar Kobar on Wednesday night.

    Kassem a-Karim Ragah Shabli, 25, a member of the PFLP, has been arrested in the past for involvement in terrorist activities. Kassem provided the explosives that were used in the IED as well as assisted in assembling it, and took part in the killing of Shnerb.

    Two other terrorists were arrested for involvement in the attack.

    PMW: Why is Martyrdom-death “unique in Palestine”?
    Death as a "Martyr" for Allah and for "Palestine" - during terror attacks and other violent confrontations with Israel - has been promoted as an ideal by the Palestinian Authority for years, as documented by Palestinian Media Watch.

    The elevated status "Martyrs" enjoy in the PA was recently stressed by a host on official PA TV, who bragged that "Martyrdom in Palestine is unique," because a Martyr's funeral is considered "a wedding." A mother of a "Martyr" present in the TV studio expressed her opinion that death as a Martyr is "an honor":
    Official PA TV host: "Praise Allah, I want to say that this Martyrdom always is-"

    Mother of a "Martyr": "An honor."

    Official PA TV host: "Exactly! Martyrdom in Palestine is unique. We are the only ones who celebrate the news of a Martyr's wedding." [Official PA TV, Palestine This Morning, Aug. 27, 2019]


    A Martyr's funeral is considered a wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam.

    These expressions of support for dying as a "Martyr" come as no surprise. PMW has documented numerous mothers and fathers who have expressed joy when their terrorist children died as "Martyrs." This is what the PA has taught them and what is expected of them. The following are examples of mothers praising their dead children's Martyrdom, collected in one video (additional texts below):

    "I hold my head high. The honor is mine. I have a son who is a Martyr." [Official PA TV, Sept. 24, 2002]

    "[My son] told me: 'In this entire world, I can't think of anyone to marry... I want to marry the Dark-Eyed (i.e., Virgins of Paradise).' I said: 'If these are his thoughts, I wish him Martyrdom.'" [Official PA TV, Jan. 21, 2003]

    "I ask Allah to give him the reward of a Martyr... I greet all the people who came today to accompany my son at his wedding (i.e., to the Virgins of Paradise). My son is a sacrifice for the homeland, for Palestine, for Islam, and a sacrifice for all of Palestine." [Official PA TV, Feb. 17, 2018]






    Apartheid on Temple Mount: Police Block Jews from Using Drinking Fountains
    Zionist watchdog group Im Tirtzu on Wednesday released a video showing Israeli police officers physically blocking Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount from using the compound’s water fountain.

    Im Tirtzu’s Tamir Baram, who was among the Jews prevented from drinking water on the Temple Mount, said: “We’ve gotten to such an absurd situation on the Temple Mount in which something so elementary as drinking water is being prevented from Jews. For those who forgot, the Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site – and we deserve to be treated there with respect rather than with discrimination.”


    Netanyahu requests U.S. transfer funds to PA, Trump refuses
    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested that Washington allow the transfer of $12 million to Palestinian security forces, but President Donald Trump denied the request, Channel 13 reported.

    “If it’s so important for Netanyahu, he should pay the Palestinians $12 million,” Senior White House officials told Channel 13, quoting the president.

    Netanyahu's administration was supposedly one of the key factors in Trump's decision to cut aid to the Palestinians in the first place, i24 reported. The cuts were made slowly over time, but the US State Department found that the money was still being transferred to Palestinian security forces, according to Israel National News.

    Israeli ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, among other Israeli officials, reportedly asked the US to allow the transfer.

    "All US security assistance to the PA has ceased," a US official told Axios. "The US security coordinator and his team continue to conduct a security cooperation-only mission. These activities are not funded with foreign assistance resources."

    The transfer of funds did not occur, according to Israel National News.
    Security Agencies in India on Alert for Possible Terrorist Attacks on Jewish, Israeli Targets
    Security agencies in India are on alert for possible terrorist attacks on the country’s Jewish community or visiting Israeli tourists.

    News site DNA India reported that both al-Qaeda and ISIS could both be involved in such attacks, as intelligence agencies have traced messages being shared online by the terror groups.

    In addition, a jihadist group in the southern state of Kerala may be collecting information on the Jewish community in the district of Kochi. Kochi is home to the Cochin Jews, an ancient community most of whose members have immigrated to Israel.

    There may also be plans to kidnap Israeli tourists in the country. India is a popular destination for Israeli travelers, especially for young Israelis who have just finished their military service.

    DNA speculated that the terror groups could also be motivated by Israel’s support for the Indian government’s decision to impose direct rule on the disputed Kashmir region.
    Netanyahu lauds pro-Israel fmr Canadian PM Stephen Harper
    RELATING TO the project that will link Harper’s name in perpetuity with the State of Israel, Netanyahu said that Israel is a hub on many levels, including bird migration from Europe to Africa and back. He saw the center as an important facility for ornithological research, combining beauty and science.

    In a reference to the many friendships that Israel has developed over the years with the leaders of different countries, Netanyahu said that, “the best friendship is based on an alliance of values. Stephen has stood up for these values time and again.”

    Harper, acknowledging that he is not supposed to be partisan in another country, recalled that he had first come across Netanyahu in the 1980s and had seen him on television when he had “virtually exploded off the screen.” He had predicted at the time that Netanyahu would one day become prime minister of Israel.

    Not only did that happen, he said, but Netanyahu had become Israel’s longest serving prime minister and had transformed the country and its image on the world stage.

    Harper described Netanyahu as “the most consequential figure in the history of the State of Israel.”
    Bipartisan group of US congresswomen visits to show ‘no daylight’ on Israel
    A bipartisan delegation of women members of Congress is visiting Israel this week to underline that there is “no daylight” between the Democratic and Republican parties when it comes to ensuring the strength of US-Israel relations, and in supporting Israel as a Jewish, democratic state, the leader of the group said Thursday.

    Speaking to The Times of Israel by phone as the delegation toured the country, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat of Florida, said the group had met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz, and former chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, and found it “heartwarming” to hear how similar they sounded about the imperative to enable Israelis and Palestinians to “live side by side in peace.”

    Two other members of the delegation were also on the call — Martha Roby (a Republican of Alabama) and Angie Craig (a Democrat of Minnesota). The delegation also included Congresswomen Bonnie Watson Coleman, Brenda Lawrence, Mikie Sherrill and Susie Lee.

    Asked about concerns in Israel that some high-profile members of the Democratic party have been loudly critical of Israel, and that three Democratic presidential candidates — Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg — have talked of leveraging US military aid in order to compel Israel to change its policies on settlements and the Palestinians, Wasserman Schultz replied: “Quite the contrary: The message given to us, particularly by Prime Minister Netanyahu, is that he does not perceive or believe that there is any erosion of support.”
    Jewish Democratic congressman visiting W. Bank blasts treatment of Palestinians
    A Democratic congressman from Michigan has criticized Israel for its treatment of Palestinians following a tour of the West Bank earlier this week.

    Rep. Andy Levin said Wednesday he was enraged by the situation in Susya, where Palestinian villagers are denied water access, while Jewish settlers nearby are granted government-supplied amenities.

    “Yesterday, I traveled to the southern West Bank, including the Palestinian village of Susya, which the Israeli government has destroyed twice and currently denies access to water,” he wrote. “Yet we watched the government utility, right before our eyes, lay in pipes right across the village’s land to deliver tap water to an illegal Israeli outpost nearby.” He did not name the outpost.

    Israel has several times in the past demolished Palestinian buildings in Susya, saying they were built without permits.

    “It was simply incredible. As angry as the situation made me, the resilience of the Palestinian villagers left an even stronger impression,” wrote Levin, a former synagogue president and chair of the steering committee of Detroit Jews for Justice.
    French far-left leader accuses Jews of 'violent sectarianism'
    The leader of the French far left accused French Jews of inciting to assault him and promoting “violent sectarianism” that he said doesn’t occur among Muslims.

    Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the France Unbowed movement, inveighed against the CRIF federation of Jewish communities and organizations on Sunday during a televised interview with France Inter.

    “Sectarianism’s always been a problem for the republican idea,” Melenchon, who has been accused of anti-Semitic rhetoric in the past, said. “Take CRIF. It practices blatant, violent and aggressive sectarianism, namely against me, right? To the point of encouraging people to hit me during a demonstration like the one for Mirelle Knol.”

    Mirelle Knol was a Holocaust survivor who was murdered in her Paris apartment last year, allegedly by a Muslim neighbor. CRIF asked Melenchon and the leader of the rightist National Rally party, Marine Le Pen, not to attend a commemorative march for Knol. Both politicians came to the march, where participants booed them until police escorted them away.

    CRIF did not call for violence, which did not occur at the event, and condemned the booing.

    Melenchon, who continued to call CRIF “bizarre, folkloristic and ridiculous,” did not name any other group as responsible for sectarianism.
    BREAKING: Ex-Twitter Employees Charged For Spying For Saudi Arabia, Reports Say
    The Department of Justice announced on Wednesday charges against two former Twitter employees for allegedly spying for Saudi Arabia which analysts believe is the first time that the United States government has accused Saudi Arabia of spying in the United States.

    The two former Twitter employees that were charged are Ahmad Abouammo, who reportedly is a U.S. citizen, and Ali Alzabarah, who is a Saudi citizen.

    In a statement, the DOJ wrote that the “information could have been used to identify and locate the Twitter users who published these posts.”

    Prosecutors alleged that Abouammo “spied on the accounts of three users — including one whose posts discussed the inner workings of the Saudi leadership – on behalf of the government in Riyadh,” The Washington Post reported. Abouammo was also charged for allegedly “falsifying an invoice to obstruct an FBI investigation.

    Prosecutors accused Alzabarah of “accessing the personal information of more than 6,000 Twitter accounts in 2015 on behalf of Saudi Arabia,” The Post added. “One of those accounts belonged to a prominent dissident, Omar Abdulaziz, who later became close to Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was killed by Saudi government agents last year.”

    A second Saudi national, Ahmed Almutairi, was also charged for allegedly spying as prosecutors say that he acted as a middle man between the Saudi government and the two Twitter employees.
    ‘They Are Leading by Leaps and Bounds’: South African President Cyril Ramaphosa Lauds Israeli Economic Innovation in Policy Speech
    South African President Cyril Ramaphosa lavished praise on Israel’s technology sector during a recent major economic policy address to women business leaders in Johannesburg, describing it as a model for his own country to follow.

    When it came to growth and innovation, Israel was “leading by leaps and bounds,” Ramaphosa told the 2019 Presidential Dialogue of the Businesswomen’s Association of South Africa on Oct. 29.

    “They are innovative in a number of sectors in the economy — in agriculture, in maritime, in many other areas,” Ramaphosa said, in remarks that were also broadcast live on South Africa’s national television network.

    “They have shown that they can lead, and we can learn a lot from what they do,” he said.

    Ramaphosa’s comments about Israel came in response to an audience question from prominent venture capitalist Polo Leteka — the co-founder of IDF Capital, a South African-owned equity firm that invests in businesses owned by black women.

    Leteka told Ramaphosa that Israel’s status as a global technology leader had been secured by the financial support of its government.

    “It was the government of Israel who put up a challenge fund back in 1992 — it was essentially a matching fund that put millions of dollars into the private sector,” Leteka said. “That’s how the industry there has developed as it has.”
    Iran said to pull out of deaf futsal championships to avoid facing Israeli team
    After the Iranian Judo federation was banned by international sports authorities from all competitions over its boycott of Israeli athletes, another Iranian sports team has reportedly pulled out of a competition to avoid facing an Israeli squad.

    Israel and Iran were placed in the same group in the upcoming World Deaf Futsal Championships, along with Argentina and Sweden. Israel was due to play against Iran on Saturday.

    The Iranians said they wouldn’t show up to the tournament in Switzerland unless they were moved to a different group, Israel’s Kan public broadcaster reported Thursday. When that didn’t happen, they withdrew from the competition entirely.

    Futsal is similar to soccer, with five players per side on a small court.

    The Iranian team had won the Asia Pacific Deaf Futsal Championships in February.

    Iran does not recognize Israel as a country and Iranian sports teams have for several decades had a policy of not competing against Israelis. Iranian passports remind holders in bold red that they are “not entitled to travel to occupied Palestine.”

    Last month, the International Judo Federation (IJF) banned Iran from competition indefinitely over the country’s refusal to face Israeli competitors.
    Jordan bans Israeli farmers from border enclave
    The Jordanian government announced that as of Sunday, Israeli farmers will be banned from entering the Naharayim enclave, Jordan Valley Council head Idan Greenbaum said Thursday.

    Under the 1994 peace agreement with Jordan, the Naharayim enclave and the Tzofar enclave were leased to Israel for 25 years, allowing the Israeli farmers living in the enclave to continue managing their farms.

    About a year ago, the Hashemite Kingdom announced that it wanted to terminate the lease agreement and take over the two enclaves.

    Various attempts were made both in public and in private to change the Jordanian decision, but the decision is apparently final.

    About a month ago, a Naharayim farmer in the Jordan Valley approached with an urgent letter to King Abdullah II and asked him to stop the process of restoring the enclave to the possession of the Kingdom of Jordan.

    Idan Greenbaum wrote to the Jordanian King on behalf of all the farmers of the Naharayim enclave: "I am taking an extraordinary step of writing directly to you, to prevent what is a disaster for us. I sincerely ask you to have the opportunity to present our suggestions to you or to someone you trust, through a meeting with us at the Island of Peace itself.
    Khaled Abu Toameh: Hamas bans rally to commemorate Yasser Arafat
    The Palestinian ruling Fatah faction on Thursday accused Hamas of banning Palestinians in the Gaza Strip from holding a rally to commemorate former Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat on the 15th anniversary of his death.

    Fatah had called on its supporters to gather on Thursday afternoon at the Square of Unknown Soldiers in Gaza City to mark the anniversary of the death of Arafat, who died on November 11, 2004. Another event, planned for next Monday, has also been banned by Hamas.

    The ban came as Fatah and Hamas have been holding indirect negotiations on PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s initiative to hold new Palestinian parliamentary and presidential elections.

    Mahmoud al-Aloul, deputy chairman of Fatah, said that the ban shows that Hamas’s announcement welcoming the new elections is nothing but “slogans.”

    The ban, Aloul said, is a “frustrating and unreasonable message” from Hamas.

    He said that Fatah was optimistic that matters were moving in the right direction after Hamas welcomed Abbas’s initiative to hold long overdue elections. “But Hamas took this unwise and unexpected decision to ban the event commemorating Arafat,” Aloul added.
    Gaza Protests Erupt after Police Throw Arrested Man Out the Window of His Home
    A rare public anti-Hamas protest took place in Gaza following the death of a 28-year-old man who’d been thrown from the window of his own home by the terror group’s security services.

    Three Hamas police officers arrived at the home of Anan Abu Jameh in the city of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza last Friday. According to the family, the security forces went upstairs to his room, arrested him and then threw him out of the window of his room. He sustained a serious injury to his head and later died from his wounds in the hospital.

    "They knocked on the door very hard and as soon as I opened it they said, 'We want Anan,’” said the father. He said he had asked to see a search warrant but was pushed aside by Hamas men who told him they will “do whatever we want.”

    The 28-year-old had recently graduated from a local university with a degree in communications and journalism.

    The incident led to an uproar among the local residents, who labeled Anan’s death as a "cold-blooded murder." The subsequent protests forced the Hamas police spokesman to make a statement, presenting a different version of events where the 28-year-old was arrested based on a warrant for his arrest.

    The police did not specify what the victim was accused of, but claimed Abu Jameh tried to evade the arrest by jumping from his window onto the nearby tree, from where he fell and sustained fatal wounds.

    Abu Jameh's family rejected the police’s account of events, calling it a gross lie. The family also added the police didn’t try to investigate the circumstances of their son’s death at any point.

    During Abu Jameh’s funeral in Khan Younis a rare anti-Hamas demonstration erupted, with the participants chanting: “Hamas are murderers.”
    Middle East: The Anti-Iran Revolution is Well Underway
    Iran's attempts to expand its malign influence throughout the Middle East have suffered a severe setback as a result of the unprecedented anti-government protests that have erupted in Lebanon and Iraq in recent weeks.

    The most obvious source of discontent in these two key Arab states has been the endemic corruption that has taken hold in both Beirut and Baghdad; in both countries, it has been the prime motivation in persuading tens of thousands of demonstrators to take to the streets.

    The desire to end corrupt practices and force the governments in Beirut and Baghdad to undertake a radical overhaul of their respective countries' governments is, though, only part of the story.

    The nationwide protests taking place in both Arab states are also driven by a burning desire to end Iran's blatant attempts to turn them into de facto fiefdoms of Tehran.

    Iran's attempts to seize control of the political agenda in Lebanon dates back to the early 1980s, when Iran established its Hezbollah militia in the southern part of the country to launch a series of terrorist attacks against Israeli forces operating in the area. Since then, Hezbollah -- with Iran's backing -- has gradually extended its influence in the country to the point where Hezbollah is now widely recognised as Lebanon's most influential political organisation.


    Seth J. Frantzman: U.N. slams bleeding Iraqi protesters for closing roads, harming oil supply
    The Special Representative for the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq slammed protesters for closing roads and disrupting oil on its way to ports, raising the ire of Iraqis who wonder why the UN cares more about oil and roads than people’s lives. It came days after the UN Secretary-General visited Turkey and appeared open to a plan by Turkey to settle Syrian refugees in an area that 200,000 have been forced to flee from due to fighting, leading to questions about the overall UN blind-spot on suffering in the region.

    Jeanine Hennis, a Dutch politician who serves as a diplomat and Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Iraq, tweeted on Wednesday that the protests in Iraq, where more than 200 protesters have been shot by security forces, are disrupting critical infrastructure.

    “Also of grave concern. Responsibility of all to protect public facilities. Threats, closure of roads to oil installations, ports causing billions in losses. Detrimental to Iraq’s economy,” she wrote.

    It was undermining fulfilling the protesters’ legitimate demands.

    “Losses to whom?” wondered the Twitter account Mosul Eye, which is run by survivors of the ISIS occupation of Mosul. “Most young Iraqis have no work. The schools are bare. The hospitals are completely unsupplied. No electricity. No assurance of clean water.”
    JCPA: Iran’s Strategy: Negotiate Using the Threat of Reneging on Its Commitments
    Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi said Iran would begin transferring nuclear materials to the Fordow site on November 6, 2019, as part of its fourth phase of reneging on its nuclear agreement obligations. He made it clear that the nuclear agreement prohibited Iran from transferring any nuclear material to Fordow, “but Iran is in the process of transferring nuclear material to the site.” He added that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was updated that the transfer of nuclear materials – before being fed into centrifuges – would take place on November 6, 2019. The spokesman said that by the end of the week, Iran would provide reporters with more details on the nuclear issue.

    On November 5, 2019, President Hassan Rouhani said that he instructed the AEOI to implement the fourth stage of moving away from Iranian commitments to the nuclear accord. He said that like the previous stages of Iranian violations of the nuclear agreement, these steps are “reversible,” and if the other nations that also signed the deal will fulfill their side of the agreement and restore Iran to their previous position (January 2017), then Iran will return to fulfill their commitments. Rouhani noted that the IAEA would be allowed to monitor their activities.

    The Iranian president said that the facility in Fordow currently has 1,044 centrifuges in which uranium gas will be injected, in direct violation of the nuclear accord, where it was agreed that the centrifuges would be operated in a vacuum without being injected with gas. Under the agreement, Iran also pledged to drastically reduce the number of centrifuges at the Fordow enrichment site and banned uranium enrichment by 2031. At the same time, Rouhani made it clear that Iran continues to be committed to behind the scenes negotiations with several countries to resolve the crisis. Rouhani claims that Iran “had hoped to achieve results before taking these current measures, but that didn’t happen; No results were achieved, so we had to take this fourth step.”
    IAEA accuses Iran of evading attempts to probe uranium production – report
    The top inspector for the UN’s nuclear agency has reportedly accused Iran of evading attempts to gather information on Tehran’s uranium production at a warehouse that was flagged by Israel and where particles were found earlier this year.

    Bloomberg, in a report Thursday, cited two officials as saying that Massimo Aparo told diplomats in a closed-door meeting in Vienna on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic was “evading attempts to discover the source of manmade and natural uranium particles detected at a warehouse in Tehran.”

    The extraordinary meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors was convened by Cornel Feruta, the organization’s acting head, to discuss the latest concerns about Iran’s nuclear program, the report said.

    In September, Reuters reported that traces of uranium were found at a facility in Tehran that was alleged by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be a “secret atomic warehouse.”

    Iran has not provided an explanation for why uranium was found at the site to the IAEA, which is investigating the facility in the Iranian capital, the news agency reported at the time.
    Top Iranian Official Targeted by New US Sanctions Is Wanted by Argentina for 1994 Bombing of AMIA Jewish Center
    One of the nine top Iranian officials targeted by new US sanctions on Monday is wanted by the Argentine authorities for his alleged involvement in the 1994 terrorist bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in downtown Buenos Aires.

    Ali Akbar Velayati was among the list of senior aides to the Tehran regime’s so-called “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, sanctioned by the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in order to “block funds from flowing to a shadow network of Khamenei’s military and foreign affairs advisors who have for decades oppressed the Iranian people, exported terrorism, and advanced destabilizing policies around the world,” an OFAC statement said.

    Velayati was Iran’s foreign minister at the time of the AMIA atrocity on July 18, 1994, when 85 people died and hundreds more were wounded when a van packed with explosives was driven into the Jewish organization’s main building in the Argentine capital. He was also alleged to have been present at a meeting of Iranian security officials in the city of Mashhad on Aug. 14, 1993, where the decision to bomb the AMIA building is understood to have been taken.

    In July 2018, Argentine Judge Rodolfo Canicoba Corral requested Velayati’s arrest by Russian authorities while he was on an official visit to Moscow. Velayati met with Russian President Vladimir Putin one day after Corral’s request was issued.

    Judge Corral originally issued international arrest warrants in 2006 for Velayati and seven other Iranian and Lebanese operatives wanted in connection with the AMIA bombing. Corral also tried unsuccessfully to secure Velayati’s arrest under the same warrant in 2016, when the Iranian visited Singapore and Malaysia.


    Mike Pompeo: Iran positioning itself for rapid nuclear break-out
    Iran has positioned itself to rapidly break out into a nuclear power by resuming uranium enrichment at Fordow, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday.

    “Iran’s expansion of proliferation-sensitive activities raises concerns that Iran is positioning itself to have the option of a rapid nuclear breakout,” Pompeo said.

    The biggest obstacle to build a nuclear weapon is stockpiling enough fissile material — highly enriched uranium or plutonium — for the core of a bomb. A central objective of the 2015 deal was to extend the time Iran would need to do that, if it chose to, to a year from about 2 to 3 months.

    Tehran’s latest "nuclear escalations" reflect the regime’s intentions all along: to extort the international community into accepting its violence and terror while it undermines the sovereignty of its neighbors. Members of the international community who are rightly concerned with Iran’s latest attacks and provocations should imagine how Iran,” Pompeo said.

    He called on the international community to supports sanctions against Iran.
    MEMRI: Even As UK, France Acknowledge That Iran Is Violating The JCPOA, The Trump Administration, After Ostensibly Withdrawing From It, Continues To Preserve It – By Means Of Its Waivers For Civilian Nuclear Cooperation With Iran
    On November 5, 2019, Iran announced that it was taking its fourth step to cut back on its obligations under the JCPOA nuclear agreement. This step includes reviving uranium enrichment at the Fordo nuclear facility and activating an array of advanced centrifuges that will enable it in future to double and triple its enrichment capability. In effect, Iran is systematically stripping the JCPOA of all meaning, ostensibly with the approval of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    France and Britain have issued a public response to this fourth step by Iran, saying for the first time that it is violating the JCPOA.[1]

    Although the U.S., in May 2018, announced its withdrawal from the JCPOA,[2] it is in effect preserving it by continuing to grant significant waivers to the U.S. sanctions. These waivers allow some countries to help Iran develop its nuclear program under the heading of development for civilian needs – allowing Europe, Russia, and China to continue to uphold the agreement (see for example July 2019 statements on this matter by then-U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton on the continuation of the waivers[3]).

    This report will set out the significance of this fourth step in Iran's withdrawal from its obligations under the JCPOA, as explained by two top regime officials, and will discuss the ramifications of the third step – the cancellation of the JCPOA's research and development timetable for it – for the development of Iran's nuclear program. These ramifications were previously discussed in a MEMRI report published in October.[4]

    The Last Harvest: Martinstag, the Räbeliechtliumzug, and Thanksgiving

     Cache   

    We went out the door, wrapped in coats and scarves, with our paper lanterns lit. The streets were dark, but ahead of us, we could make out the shadows of other children and their parents, their faces softly illuminated by their own lanterns hung on sticks. The lanterns swayed gently as we walked. We went up the street, up the long hill, through the little Bavarian town we were temporarily calling home. It was the eve of Martinstag, November 10, and our neighbors who lived in the flat below ours had invited us to come along.

    It wasn't a solemn ritual. There was laughter and chatter, an air of excitement. On the main street, a crowd gathered on either side, the lanterns brightening the darkness. A parade advanced and thundered down the street, roaring with music, vehicles decorated like ships, horses, and other modes of travel. Costumed celebrants called out, "Halloo!" a traditional battle cry, and tossed out candy that we scrambled for and stuffed into sacks.

    At its roots, Martinstag is a holiday of thanksgiving, celebrating the last harvest before winter's advance. It feels something like a less-spooky Halloween or a less-raucous Carnival. Though Christianized, it's a holiday with ancient roots, celebrated throughout much of Europe.

    Other elements of Martinstag are bonfires, festive meals with goose as the main course, the singing of Martin songs, and drinking wine. Wine and geese are ready for harvesting at this time, so they are natural elements of the feast day. Catholic folklore has knitted St. Martin to them: once, St. Martin was being pursued by church officials, who were trying to ordain him as bishop. He hid from them in a goose pen, and the geese gave him away with their cackling. He is also credited with the spread of viticulture in the Touraine region -- especially the cultivation of my favorite white varietal, Chenin Blanc.

    In neighboring Switzerland, the Räbeliechtliumzug (the "raven light parade") occurs at the same time. Switzerland is a culturally diverse country, with strong, enduring connections to their various Celtic, Germanic, and Italian roots. The Celtic influence remains strong even in the eastern German Swiss cantons from which some of my ancestors (on my dad's paternal side) immigrated. While southern Germans use paper lanterns, the German Swiss carve turnips with images of the sun, moon, and stars, and illuminate them. This is tellingly similar to the British and Irish tradition of carving faces onto turnips for Samhain and Halloween. Pumpkins, being native to North America, became the vessels of choice much later.

    A Swiss site states that "the origin of the Räbenlichter [raven lights] is found in the faith of the Celts and Romans, who drove away the spirits of the dead during the dark season." Light has long been used to deter chthonic spirits that might bring illness and death to the living -- both practically (as both fire and sunlight are microbe-destroying purifiers) and symbolically (warding against the uncertainty of the night and the grave, both marked by darkness that hinders sight-dependent humans). This is probably also the reason for the bonfires and paper lanterns in southern Germany, and overall the ancient source of these holidays (along with the expression of gratitude for a bountiful growing season).

    While not generally well known in the U.S., Martinstag is celebrated in Waldorf schools (which have a German heritage, being founded in Stuttgart), where they hold lantern parades while singing Martinstag songs. One of these songs is called "Wild Geese":

    High and blue the sky

    trees are very tall

    wild geese flying seem so small

    see on silent wings in flocks they go
    never parting from a single row

     

    we go through the land

    like a wild geese band

    brothers in one flight are we

     

    clear and dark the night

    stars are very bright

    lantern shining seems so small

    see in single file we walk along

     

    singing joyfully our lantern song

     

    we go through the land

    like a wild geese band
    sisters in one light are we

     

    This song and other Martin songs bring to life, for me, the old feelings and roots of the holiday that has persisted through adaptation. Geese and other water birds are strongly associated with goddesses of water, healing, and fertility across the world. Their flight from northern climes is a symbol of the end of the fertile season; it's almost as if the flocks bear it away with them, leaving the land cold and dormant, in a state of near-death. The lanterns, then, are a message of hope and faith in times of want and struggle -- relevant among all peoples -- as well as a commitment to tend the smaller flames (the candle, the bonfire, the hearth fire, the living inner flame within each person and in each vital community) until the greater flame of the sun draws near again, waking the world from its months-long sleep.

     

    While another name for Martinstag is Old Halloween, there is much about Martinstag that reminds me of American Thanksgiving. In many ways, they are sister holidays, and the elder provides a context for the American holiday that otherwise seems disconnected from the other harvest holidays of our ancestors. We, too, have a parade -- a national one broadcasted every Thanksgiving morning from New York City. Instead of goose, we eat turkey -- a native bird that is likewise hunted in late fall. While not necessarily a widespread tradition, many also drink wine, including mulled wine (called Glühwein in Germany), during Thanksgiving dinner. I'm not aware of any Thanksgiving songs or bonfires, but they would certainly be appropriate and could be easily incorporated into extant traditions. Martin songs like the one above could take their place here or be referred to for inspiration.

     

    I think there's value in paganizing (or repaganizing) the holidays already built into our cultures. Whether or not they have proven ancient pagan origins, and no matter how much they may have been lacquered by Christianity, they still have cores that are relevant to modern pagans and animists -- ties to the seasons, spirits of nature and the household, and our ancestors -- that are meaningful to us and worth honoring. The oldest traditions have survived by evolution during changing times -- why not turn the wheel again toward our own faiths?

    Kommentarer till Är sionismen och fascismen motstridiga eller kompatibla ideologier? av nils

     Cache   
    En lite tydligare förklaring omkring ovanstående fakta. Tar med citat från : Ur, "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler" by Anthony C. Sutton. p21 [The] build-up for European war [WWII] both before and after 1933 was in great part due to Wall Street financial assistance in the 1920s to create the German cartel system, and to technical assistance from well-known American firms ... to build the German Wehrmach. ... The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations before 1940 can only be described as phenomenal. p27 [The] interplay of ideas and cooperation between Hjalmar Schacht [Hitler's financial advisor] in Germany and, through Owen Young, the J. P. Morgan interests in New York, was only one facet of a vast and ambitious system of cooperation and international alliance for world control. As described by Carroll Quigley, this system was "... nothing less than to create a world system of financial control, in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole." This feudal system worked in the 1920s, as it works today, through the medium of the private central bankers in each country who control the national money supply of individual economies. In the 1920s and 1930s, the New York Federal Reserve System, the Bank of England, the Reichsbank in Germany, and the Banque de France also more or less influenced the political apparatus of their respective countries indirectly through control of the money supply and creation of the monetary environment. More direct influence was realized by supplying political funds to, or withdrawing support from, politicians and political parties in the United States, for example, President Herbert Hoover blamed his 1932 defeat on withdrawal of support by Wall Street and the switch of Wall Street finance and influence to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Politicians amenable to the objectives of financial capitalism, and academics prolific with ideas for world control useful to the international bankers, are kept in line with a system of rewards and penalties. In the early 1930s the guiding vehicle for this international system of financial and political control, called by Quigley the "apex of the system," was the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basle, Switzerland. The B.I.S. apex continued its work during World War II as the medium through which the bankers - who apparently were not at war with each other - continued a mutually beneficial exchange of ideas, information, and planning for the post-war world. p31 Two cartels, I. C. Farben and Vereinigte Stahlwerke, produced 95 percent of German explosives in 1937-38 on the eve of World War II. This production was from capacity built by American loans and to some extent by American technology. The I. G. Farben-Standard Oil cooperation for production of synthetic oil from coal gave the I. C. Farben cartel a monopoly of German gasoline production during World War II. Just under one half of German high octane gasoline in 1945 was produced directly by I. G. Farben and most of the balance by its affiliated companies. ... American assistance to Nazi war efforts extended into other areas. The two largest tank producers in Hitler's Germany were Opel, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors (controlled by the J. P. Morgan firm), and the Ford A. G. subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company of Detroit. The Nazis granted tax-exempt status to Opel in 1936, to enable General Motors to expand its production facilities. General Motors obligingly reinvested the resulting profits into German industry. Henry Ford was decorated by the Nazis for his services to Naziism. Alcoa and Dow Chemical worked closely with Nazi industry with numerous transfers of their domestic U.S. technology. Bendix Aviation, in which the J. P. Morgan-controlled General Motors firm had a major stock interest, supplied Siemens & Halske A. G. in Germany with data on automatic pilots and aircraft instruments. As late as 1940, in the "unofficial war," Bendix Aviation supplied complete technical data to Robert Bosch for aircraft and diesel engine starters and received royalty payments in return. In brief, American companies associated with the Morgan-Rockefeller international investment bankers - not, it should be noted, the vast bulk of independent American industrialists - were intimately related to the growth of Nazi industry... General Motors, Ford, General Electric, DuPont and the handful of U.S. companies intimately involved with the development of Nazi Germany were - except for the Ford Motor Company - controlled by the Wall Street elite - the J. P. Morgan firm, the Rockefeller Chase Bank and to a lesser extent the Warburg Manhattan bank. /slut citat. Det är lätt att glömma bort denna orsak till att kriget kunde bli möjligt. Men i grunden finns ju finansiering via storbankerna där naturligtvis.

    Thursday Sips & Nibbles

     Cache   
    I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events.
    **********************************************************
    1) On Thursday, November 8, 6pm-9pm, Big Night Entertainment Group and the team at Red Lantern will be hosting a special Whiskey Social with KAIYō Japanese Mizunra Oak Whiskey. Join them for a night filled with Asian cuisine, great energy, and even better whiskey. This will not be your typical whiskey dinner but rather an opportunity for guests to enjoy delicious bites from the talented Red Lantern culinary team, make friends and familiarize themselves with KAIYō’s multitude of whiskeys. There will be KAIYō stations around the room where representatives will explain each type of whiskey and help guests pair their food with the perfect drink. The event is free flowing and a chance for people socialize while learning from the KAIYō whiskey experts.

    You must be 21+ with a valid ID to attend. Tickets are $80 and can be purchased here.

    2) In honor of World Kindness Day, the Mighty Meredith Project invites everyone to be Mighty Kind at the first “Be Kind. It’s Good for the Mind" signature event at Kings Dining & Entertainment in Lynnfield on Wednesday, November 13th from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm. The event is designed by young brain injury survivor, Meredith Casey, to celebrate how kindness is a cure for so many things and can impact your overall health -including your brain health, mental health and the well-being of others.

    Meredith and her family founded the Mighty Meredith Project - an organization established to raise awareness of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and the impact of having a hidden illness/disease, with the message of kindness as the beacon of the organization. Meredith hit her head in December 2015. After months of attempting to recover from an initial diagnosis of a concussion, it was also determined Meredith had a blood clot in her brain, due to the head trauma. The associated head trauma has required Meredith to no longer participate in many of the activities she came to love and has changed her outlook on life. The Mighty Meredith Project was created after Meredith settled into a new life of living with traumatic brain injury.

    Combined with the kindness of the community, outpouring of support during a difficult time and the need for Meredith to re-define her “normal”, Meredith wanted to start an organization to help others who may be caught in a similar situation. Her mission is simple:

    Tickets to the Mighty Meredith / World Kindness Day fundraiser include
    Red carpet on the step and repeat
    Pizza and Appetizers
    DJ Entertainment
    Sundae Bar
    Chocolate Chip Cookie Special
    Signing the Kindness Pledge
    Sending Acts of Kindness

    Compass crowns inaugural Barista Champion 2019

     Cache   
    The UK’s largest food services provider and fourth biggest coffee retailer in the UK, Compass Group UK & Ireland has held its inaugural Barista Championships, which saw four finalists from across the Compass portfolio take part in a highly competitive championship final. The competition was designed to mirror the ‘World Barista Championships’ set-up, to prepare Compass baristas to compete nationally. Razvan Cojocaru, from Restaurant Associates, was crowned winner following two intense rounds, where he demonstrated strong technical ability as well as complex coffee knowledge in his skill, with strong professionalism throughout. Razvan used a coffee from Costa Rica Cordillera Del Fuego which was processed using an anaerobic fermentation method and roasted by the team at Roastworks coffee. Razvan explained that the coffee was like “liquid apple pie”. Competitors: Pariwartan Nepal, from Eurest, Thales Pona, from Restaurant Associates, Arthur Luccats, from Compass Ireland and Razvan Cojocaru seized the opportunity to demonstrate their skills. The competition focused on three key areas: Espresso, milk and a signature drink. All baristas were judged against SCA competition guidelines, using their rules, regulations and score sheets. The final took place at Compass’ SCA accredited premier training campus at the company’s Chertsey HQ, complete with an esteemed panel of judges flown in from Italy and Switzerland as well as the UK. The judging panel consisted of Robert Ward, Cimbali – Technical Judge, Lauro Fioretti, Simonelli Group and Andre Eiermann, UCC – Sensory Judges. Having competed and judged at UK and World Championships themselves, the panel of judges were best placed to survey and assess Compass’s baristas skills. In addition, Compass Coffee Education and Training Manager, Sonali Tailor oversaw the judging team as head judge. The winner received a trip of a lifetime to an Origin’s coffee farm in Costa Rica. Razvan will get to see first-hand where the humble coffee bean starts its journey, as well as the social community projects at origin. Steve Lovegrove, Head of Business Excellence, Compass Group UK & Ireland, said, “The standard and quality of the baristas competing has been exceptional, congratulations goes out to each and every one of the competitors who have put so much into this competition. 'It clearly demonstrates the great talent we have in our business and it makes me extremely proud that we can showcase the skills and talents of these individuals.” Owen Thom, Education Business Development Manager, The SCA added, “It was a great honour to be a judge in the heats for Compass Barista Championships. 'Seeing all the talent on show, and the passion of all participants is a credit to the competition and the coffee education that the Barista Academy has in place. I look forward to seeing the journey of the winner and all the candidates.” Razvan Cojocaru, Compass Barista Champion 2019, said, “Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me and this competition. I feel so grateful to have won and cannot wait to fly to Costa Rica. 'This has been such an amazing experience from beginning to end, and I feel so proud to be a part of the Barista Academy, it has given me the confidence and opportunity to take part and I can’t wait for more competitions.” Prior to the inaugural final, baristas from around the Compass business took part in heats where competitors were tasked to present two espressos and two milk beverages of their choice within 7 minutes.

    Global policy planners intend to deliver replacements for both dollar hegemony and fossil fuels. Plans may appear uncoordinated and in their early stages, but these issues are becoming increasingly linked.

    A monetary reset incorporating state-sponsored cryptocurrencies will enable exchange controls to be introduced between nations by separating cross-border trade payments from domestic money circulation. The purpose will be to gain greater control over money and to direct its investment into green projects.

    US-China trade deal signing could be delayed to December; London a possible venue: Source

     Cache   

    A meeting between US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping to sign a long-awaited interim trade deal could be delayed until December as discussions continue over terms and venue, a senior official of the Trump administration told Reuters on Wednesday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was still possible the “phase one” agreement aimed at ending a damaging trade war would not be reached, but a deal was more likely than not. Dozens of venues have been suggested for the meeting, which had originally been scheduled to take place on the sidelines of a now-canceled mid-November summit of Asia-Pacific leaders in Chile, the official said. One possible location is London, where the two leaders could meet after a NATO summit that Trump is due to attend from Dec. 3-4, the official said. “It’s under consideration but nothing decided,” the official said. Other sites are possible in Europe and Asia, but the former is more likely, with Sweden and Switzerland among the possibilities. Iowa, which Trump has suggested, appeared to have been ruled out, the official said. China’s latest push for more tariff rollbacks would be discussed, but was not expected to derail progress toward an interim deal. The official said China was believed to see a quick deal as its best chance for favorable terms, given pressure Trump is facing from a congressional impeachment inquiry as he seeks re-election in 2020. US Treasury prices gained on Wednesday on word that the talks could be delayed, while some investors also repositioned after a three-day sell-off. The dollar slid and the three-day global stock market rally paused as US productivity data disappointed and investors turned a bit cautious about US-China trade talks. “Negotiations are continuing and progress is being made on the text of the phase one agreement,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said. “We will let you know when we have an announcement on a signing location.” China’s embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to requests for comment. An interim US-China deal is widely expected to include a US pledge to scrap tariffs scheduled for December 15 on about $156 billion worth of Chinese imports, including cell phones, laptop computers and toys. People familiar with the negotiations said on Monday that China has been pushing Trump to remove more tariffs imposed in September as part of the first phase of the deal. A US official said the fate of the December 15 tariffs is being considered as part of negotiations. A source briefed on the talks told Reuters on Tuesday that Chinese negotiators want Washington to drop 15 per cent tariffs on about $125 billion worth of Chinese goods that went into effect on September 1. They are also seeking relief from earlier 25 per cent tariffs on about $250 billion of imports from machinery and semiconductors to furniture. A person familiar with China’s negotiating position said it is continuing to press Washington to “remove all tariffs as soon as possible.” Since Trump took office in 2017, his administration has been pressing China to curb massive subsidies to state-owned firms and end the forced transfer of American technology to Chinese firms as a price of doing business in China. Analysts say the phase one deal will fail to adequately address these issues, focusing largely on Chinese purchases of US farm goods and intellectual property protections related to copyright and trademark issues. It will not address industrial subsidies at all. Venues that have been talked about for the Trump-Xi meeting have ranged from Alaska to Greece. One Chinese official said Beijing was floating the possibility of a meeting in Greece, where Xi is due to arrive this Sunday, after which he will head to Brazil for a summit of major emerging market countries which starts on November 13. Multiple US sources have said a signing in Greece was unlikely.

    Beyond Music Volume 1 / Same Sky Releases Music Video For “Our Colors” - A Celebration Of Cross-Cultural Friendship

    WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/XdAUdy3NlEw

    AND AT BILLBOARD: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8542500/beyond-music-our-colors-video

    BEYOND MUSIC has unveiled the music video for “Our Colors” - an original collaborative song that celebrates global friendship and cultural richness, and includes nearly all of the 23 BEYOND MUSIC artists that participated in this first-of-its-kind new project. BEYOND MUSIC Volume One / Same Sky brings together 23 artists from 17 countries who have met and networked through the new online collaborative platform (https://beyondmusic.org) to create a definitive global music album, overseen and produced by 2019 GRAMMY Producer of the Year nominee Larry Klein.  

    Watch the video for “Our Colors” here: https://youtu.be/XdAUdy3NlEw

    Today, Billboard premiered the video and spoke with Larry Klein about the making of it. Read the article here: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8542500/beyond-music-our-colors-video

    "Our Colors" was created with the collaboration of almost all BEYOND MUSIC artists during the recordings of Same Sky at the prestigious "Studios La Fabrique" in France and offers a fascinating look into the recording process. It began with a string arrangement by Danish violinist Andreas Bernitt, who said the following:  

    "Meeting the other BEYOND MUSIC artists at Studios La Fabrique in France was a life changing experience - so much special multicoloured talent gathered in one place! I wanted to create something special, through which, we could all connect - and contribute with our different cultural and musical backgrounds."

    Andreas invited the BEYOND MUSIC artists to play something on top of his string line to ensure all artists left their musical fingerprint on this song.

    BEYOND MUSIC Founder Regula Curti and CEO Konstanze Wiedemann expanded on the song’s message: “The fundamental spirit of BEYOND MUSIC is unity in diversity. Music has the power to embrace everyone by honoring their culture, race, tradition and style. ‘Our Colors’ celebrates each musical expression, vocally or instrumentally, for its distinct and unique characteristics. By unifying diverse human sound colors makes music more brilliant and affecting.” 

    Tina Turner, Co-Founder and ambassador of BEYOND MUSIC said: “I see humanity in this way. By honoring each other’s ethnic, religions, and cultural backgrounds, we become stronger and happier, brightening the cosmic masterpiece of artwork that is our world.”

    Recently, the project’s producer Larry Klein appeared on Southern California’s KPFK, as well as KPCC’s The Frame to discuss working on the project. Read more at GRAMMY.comTape-Op and Forbes as well.

    And learn more about the BEYOND MUSIC PROJECT, the artists involved, and the songs here: https://www.beyondmusicproject.org/

    The songs on Same Sky were first created via BEYOND MUSIC’s online platform (https://beyondmusic.org) that invited musicians from all over the world to collaborate virtually and to go beyond their borders. Behind BEYOND MUSIC is the non-profit Swiss BEYOND FOUNDATION, which aims to bring together cultures of the world through music in order to foster mutual dialogue and respect. BEYOND MUSIC received 110 song submissions from artists from 48 countries and 55 genres, and selected 10 winning songs to be recorded for the first volume of what will be an on-going project. 

    Listen to the album in full here: https://lnk.site/beyond-music-volume-one-same-sky

    Artistic Director and producer of the album Larry Klein assembled a top-class studio band, of all-star musicians session players including Dean Parks, Ed Harcourt, Adrian Utley, Manu Katché, Clive Deamer and Dan Lutz, who have collectively played with Sting, Peter Gabriel, Michael Jackson, Patti Smith, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Radiohead, Portishead and beyond.

    • Though it's a relatively new proposal in the US, many European nations adopted it decades ago.

    The wealth tax has become the subject of fierce debate as progressive Democratic candidates in the 2020 election champion it as a mechanism to redistribute riches. They also see it as a way to curb the economic power of the wealthiest Americans. Sen. Elizabeth Warren first proposed it and Sen. Bernie Sanders later followed.

    Warren is pushing for a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million, and tripled to 6% on fortunes over $1 billion. Sanders went farther with a more aggressive plan: He wants to levy a 2% wealth tax on households with net worths over $32 million and gradually increase it to 8% on those over $1 billion.

    Though it's a relatively new proposal in the US, many European nations had already adopted it decades before. 

    The wealth tax is similar to a property tax. But instead of taxing real estate, it covers wealth in all forms: stocks, cash, jewelry, yachts, a Pablo Picasso painting — really any asset that could be appraised a monetary value.

    Back in 1990, around a dozen European countries had a wealth tax, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Today, only four European countries have it: Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium. 

    Most European governments eliminated the tax because it was problematic in design and enforcement, and France was the latest to scrap it in 2017. They often hit people with plenty of assets but little cash on hand to pay the taxman.

    "They can be really difficult to administer and ensure even a moderate compliance rate," Daniel Bunn, the director of Global Projects at the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, told Business Insider of the European wealth tax experience.

    He added that it became difficult for governments to justify the high administrative cost of enforcement as the rich were able to move assets and capital out of the country into lower-taxed jurisdictions, often within Europe.

    Instead, Bunn said, European countries did away with it and doubled down on enforcing income taxes among others.

    All together, European wealth taxes generally brought in around 0.2% of GDP in revenues, a study from the Cato Institute noted.

    Still, four European governments are relying on wealth taxes to generate revenue. Here's how its working out for them.

    Spain has a wealth tax levied on fortunes above €700,000, or just over $774,000, starting at a 0.2% rate.

    Spain first introduced a wealth tax (otherwise known as Patrimonio) in 1977, two years after the death of its authoritarian leader Francisco Franco. 

    It kept the tax until 2008 when the global financial crisis threw the Spanish economy into a tailspin. The tax was temporarily reinstated three years later in 2011 to boost public finances, but the national government later decided to make it permanent again. 

    Spain now taxes fortunes above €700,000 at 0.2%, which gradually increases to 2.5% on net worth above €10.7 million depending on the region. People living in the Spanish capital of Madrid are exempt from the tax.

    Its never been a substantial generator of tax money for the Spanish government. Data from the OECD shows that a net wealth tax on individuals made up 0.55 percent of all tax revenues in 2017.



    Norway collects a wealth tax both at the municipal and the national level, starting at 1.48 million krone, or $174,000.

    Norway's wealth tax was first introduced in 1892. The central government levies a tax rate of 0.15% while municipalities impose a 0.7% rate, bringing the maximum to 0.85%.

    Only wealth above 1.48 million krona, or roughly $174,000, is taxed. That figure is doubled for married couples.

    A 2012 study from Norwegian researchers reported that average wealth per household totaled 1.6 million krona, or just over $166,000, indicating that most of the population paid some form of the tax.

    The amount of revenue generated has largely been the same over the last two decades. The OECD reported the wealth tax constituted 1.1% of all Norwegian tax revenue in 2017.



    Switzerland first implemented its wealth tax in 1840. The rate varies by canton, or state, as the central government does not collect the tax.

    Switzerland first levied a wealth tax in 1840 and its been a pillar of their tax structure since. They're self-reported and paid annually, with no institutional tracking of wealth. Tax authorities can only access personal bank information if a person is suspected of a crime.

    The country has a decentralized tax system, and the rate varies around its 26 cantons. But it ranges between 0.3% and 1% of taxpayers' net worth. They tend to be highest in the French-speaking regions of the west and lower in the German-speaking cantons of central Switzerland.

    The tax-free threshold for a married couple without children is between 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,370) to 250,000 Swiss francs ($251,856). "The wealth tax thus affects much of the middle class in addition to the wealthiest families," one study on the Swiss wealth tax found.

    Compared to the other three European countries, the Swiss wealth tax has generated consistent revenue so far in the 21st century and it brought the largest share. OECD data shows that wealth taxes made up 3.6% of all Swiss tax revenue in 2017, and it's been above 3% since 2000.



    Belgium enacted a limited wealth tax last year on securities accounts containing over €500,000.

    Belgium introduced a limited wealth tax on security holdings last year, the Financial Times reported.

    The Belgian government enacted a 0.15% tax on the securities accounts of individuals with holdings over €500,000, or $553,000.

    The country already had some of the highest tax rates in Europe, though it proved hospitable for French entrepreneurs and businesspeople seeking to park their assets in a neighboring country before Paris eliminated the wealth tax.

    • Hillary Clinton called the wealth taxes proposed by Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren "unworkable" and said they would be "incredibly disruptive" if enforced.
    • "I don't see other examples anywhere else in the world where it has actually worked over a long period of time," Clinton said.
    • Clinton did say she's "all in favor" of reinstating the estate tax, which Republican lawmakers all but eliminated in their 2017 tax law.

    Hillary Clinton called the wealth taxes proposed by Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren "unworkable" and said they would be "incredibly disruptive" if enforced.

    Warren has proposed an "ultra-millionaire tax" of 2% on American households' net worth between $50 million and $1 billion and of 3% on households' net worth above $1 billion. Sanders supports a similar version that begins with a 1% tax on wealth over $32 million.

    • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

    The wealth tax has become the subject of fierce debate as progressive Democratic candidates in the 2020 election champion it as a mechanism to redistribute riches. They also see it as a way to curb the economic power of the wealthiest Americans. Sen. Elizabeth Warren first proposed it and Sen. Bernie Sanders later followed.

    Warren is pushing for a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million, and tripled to 6% on fortunes over $1 billion. Sanders went farther with a more aggressive plan: He wants to levy a 2% wealth tax on households with net worths over $32 million and gradually increase it to 8% on those over $1 billion.

    Though it's a relatively new proposal in the US, many European nations had already adopted it decades before. 

    The wealth tax is similar to a property tax. But instead of taxing real estate, it covers wealth in all forms: stocks, cash, jewelry, yachts, a Pablo Picasso painting — really any asset that could be appraised a monetary value.

    Back in 1990, around a dozen European countries had a wealth tax, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Today, only four European countries have it: Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium. 

    Most European governments eliminated the tax because it was problematic in design and enforcement, and France was the latest to scrap it in 2017. They often hit people with plenty of assets but little cash on hand to pay the taxman.

    "They can be really difficult to administer and ensure even a moderate compliance rate," Daniel Bunn, the director of Global Projects at the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, told Business Insider of the European wealth tax experience.

    He added that it became difficult for governments to justify the high administrative cost of enforcement as the rich were able to move assets and capital out of the country into lower-taxed jurisdictions, often within Europe.

    Instead, Bunn said, European countries did away with it and doubled down on enforcing income taxes among others.

    All together, European wealth taxes generally brought in around 0.2% of GDP in revenues, a study from the Cato Institute noted.

    Still, four European governments are relying on wealth taxes to generate revenue. Here's how its working out for them.

    Spain has a wealth tax levied on fortunes above €700,000, or just over $774,000, starting at a 0.2% rate.

    Spain first introduced a wealth tax (otherwise known as Patrimonio) in 1977, two years after the death of its authoritarian leader Francisco Franco. 

    It kept the tax until 2008 when the global financial crisis threw the Spanish economy into a tailspin. The tax was temporarily reinstated three years later in 2011 to boost public finances, but the national government later decided to make it permanent again. 

    Spain now taxes fortunes above €700,000 at 0.2%, which gradually increases to 2.5% on net worth above €10.7 million depending on the region. People living in the Spanish capital of Madrid are exempt from the tax.

    Its never been a substantial generator of tax money for the Spanish government. Data from the OECD shows that a net wealth tax on individuals made up 0.55 percent of all tax revenues in 2017.



    Norway collects a wealth tax both at the municipal and the national level, starting at 1.48 million krone, or $174,000.

    Norway's wealth tax was first introduced in 1892. The central government levies a tax rate of 0.15% while municipalities impose a 0.7% rate, bringing the maximum to 0.85%.

    Only wealth above 1.48 million krona, or roughly $174,000, is taxed. That figure is doubled for married couples.

    A 2012 study from Norwegian researchers reported that average wealth per household totaled 1.6 million krona, or just over $166,000, indicating that most of the population paid some form of the tax.

    The amount of revenue generated has largely been the same over the last two decades. The OECD reported the wealth tax constituted 1.1% of all Norwegian tax revenue in 2017.



    Switzerland first implemented its wealth tax in 1840. The rate varies by canton, or state, as the central government does not collect the tax.

    Switzerland first levied a wealth tax in 1840 and its been a pillar of their tax structure since. They're self-reported and paid annually, with no institutional tracking of wealth. Tax authorities can only access personal bank information if a person is suspected of a crime.

    The country has a decentralized tax system, and the rate varies around its 26 cantons. But it ranges between 0.3% and 1% of taxpayers' net worth. They tend to be highest in the French-speaking regions of the west and lower in the German-speaking cantons of central Switzerland.

    The tax-free threshold for a married couple without children is between 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,370) to 250,000 Swiss francs ($251,856). "The wealth tax thus affects much of the middle class in addition to the wealthiest families," one study on the Swiss wealth tax found.

    Compared to the other three European countries, the Swiss wealth tax has generated consistent revenue so far in the 21st century and it brought the largest share. OECD data shows that wealth taxes made up 3.6% of all Swiss tax revenue in 2017, and it's been above 3% since 2000.
