Bahamian islands owned by late coal billionaire ask $30M

 Cache   

A group of private islands in the Bahamas that hosted President Richard Nixon will hit the market for nearly $30 million. The nine islands were owned by the late billionaire Chris Cline, who died in a helicopter crash in July on his way off the property. Cline’s estate is selling the Bahamian compound, which is made up of 277 acres in the Abaco Islands, the Wall Street Journal reported. Cline was killed over the summer ... [more]

Mondiali Beach Soccer, ai quarti è sfida tra Gori e Stankovic. Mister Santini: "Sono i 2 pivot più forti del mondo"

 Cache   

di Claudio Tanteri
48075691773 1395737f06 bCi siamo, è iniziato il conto alla rovescia verso l'atteso quarto di finale mondiale tra l’Italbeach e la Svizzera. Domani (28 novembre), alle 23,25, le due nazionali si giocheranno l’accesso alla semifinale a Los Pynandi World Cup Stadium di Asuncion in una partita che promette spettacolo. Dopo la netta vittoria con il Messico nell’ultima partita dei gironi (leggi qui), il mondiale dell’Italia adesso entra nel vivo con la fase ad eliminazione diretta. Ad Asuncion andrà in scena una sfida all’interno della sfida, quella tra due bomber: Gabriele Gori e Dejan Stankovic, rispettivamente capocannoniere e vicecapocannoniere del mondiale. Un quarto di finale dal sapore viareggino: i due fuoriclasse, infatti, quest’anno hanno condiviso la maglia bianconera del Viareggio bs. Insieme hanno condiviso numerose battaglie sotto la guida di mister Stefano Santini, che adesso osserva da lontano la sfida tra i due fenomeni.

Santini non ha dubbi: “Gabriele Gori e Dejan Stankovic sono i due pivot puri più forti del mondo. Sentono la porta come pochi, giocano sempre in avanti pronti ad insaccare la palle in rete. In pochi hanno queste caratteristiche: il brasiliano Rodrigo è fortissimo ma non gioca fisso in area. Insieme a Gori e Stankovic metto anche Emmanuele Zurlo, anche lui ormai è tra i top del mondo”.
77150163 2595873920502982 8362036660837285888 oGori contro Stankovic. Il quarto di finale tra Italia e Svizzera verrà decisa anche dalla sfida tra i due bomber. Da una parte Gabriele Gori, 32 anni, protagonista di un 2019 da favola da top al mondo con 8 titoli di capocannoniere conquistati. Quello del viareggino è il miglior inizio di sempre in un mondiale: con la bellezza di 13 gol in sole 3 partite, il numero 10 migliora il suo score dello scorso mondiale alle Bahamas (concluso con 17 gol e il titolo di capocannoniere) in cui segnò 11 reti nella fase a gironi. Un marziano ad Asuncion, per lui parlano i numeri: sono 38 i gol in un mondiale per Gori, 172 sigilli nel solo 2019, 289 in nazionale (80 nel 2019) e 721 all-time. Dall’altra parte un altro fenomeno noto a livello planetario, Dejan Stankovic. Il 34enne necessita di poche presentazioni: oltre 300 presenze con la nazionale elvetica e una serie infinita di realizzazioni di cui lo stesso giocatore ha perso il conto. Stankovic ha trascinato la Svizzera ai quarti segnando 7 reti (vicecapocannoniere), eguagliando già i gol segnati nello scorso mondiale alle Bahamas. Una sfida a suon di gol: nell’ultimo precedente tra Italia e Svizzera risalente a maggio, Gori segnò una tripletta e Stankovic una doppietta. Mister Stefano Santini svela i segreti dei due bomber: “Gori continua a migliorare anno dopo anno. I suoi punti forti sono il gioco aereo, il calcio e la velocità di esecuzione della rovesciata che è davvero unica. Ha aumentato la velocità di esecuzione di questo fondamentale, per questo sorprende sempre i portieri. Nella rovesciata è il più forte del mondo. Stankovic è un giocatore più fisico rispetto a Gori: protegge palla e fa perno sul giocatore avversario. Sul calcio Gori e Stankovic sono allo stesso livello, sulla rovesciata Gabriele ha qualcosa in più”.
47923474518 2fdeae96f2 hQuesta Italia se la può giocare con tutti: “Quella con la Svizzera sarà un balla sfida, ma l’Italia parte da favorita – l’analisi di Stefano Santini -. La rosa degli azzurri è più competitiva, gli svizzeri hanno solamente 4 giocatori di alto livello”. Santini è sicuro: l’Italia può giocarsela anche con il Brasile. “Questa nazionale può davvero giocarsela con tutti – commenta Santini -. Il Brasile è senza dubbi la favorita, è la nazionale da battere. Ma questa Italia ha dei punti in favore rispetto alla nazionale verde-oro : in attacco siamo più forti, il Brasile non ha Gori e Zurlo. Due giocatori che il Brasile soffre. Non solo gli attaccanti, anche i nostri portieri (Del Mestre e Carpita) sono migliori. Quando è attenta, inoltre, la fase difensiva dell’Italia è quasi insuperabile. Senza dimenticare lo staff del tecnico Del Duca, che è di primissimo livello. Al top del mondo direi, proprio insieme al brasiliano Gilberto Costa e allo svizzero Angelo Schirinzi. Il Brasile ha una rosa di fenomeni ed è letale in ripartenza, ma anche nella partita contro il Portogallo ha dimostrato di essere vulnerabile in difesa. In una partita secca tutto è possibile”.
48506970922 c220247302 hCarpita, Marinai, Ramacciotti e Gori: quattro viareggini alla conquista del mondo, un orgoglio di un’intera città e della società del Viareggio Beach Soccer. “Siamo partiti 10 anni fa, tra lo scettiscismo di tutti, compreso quello dei genitori dei ragazzi – racconta Stefano Santini –. La società ha fatto tanto per Carpita, Marinai, Ramacciotti e Gori, adesso loro stanno restituendo tutto. Questi 4 hanno dato la vita e l’anima per il beach soccer. Hanno fatto la fortuna del nostro club: se il Viareggio ha vinto tutto è merito loro, questa cosa la voglio sottolineare. Stanno portando il nome della società in tutto il mondo: sentire nominare Viareggio in una diretta di Sky è una grande soddisfazione. Sono il nostro orgoglio”.
48498471906 bebaf81095 hI precedenti tra Italia e Svizzera. Quella di Asuncion è la sesta partecipazione della Svizzera al mondiale, miglior risultato la finale persa con il Brasile nel 2009. Gli elvetici arrivano all’appuntamento con il secondo posto del Gruppo A, dopo aver perso lo scontro diretto per la vetta nell’ultima partita contro il Giappone di Ozu (5-3). La Svizzera ha chiuso il gruppo con 5 punti, dopo le vittorie con Usa (8-6) e Paraguay (7-6 dopo l’extra time). La squadra di Schirinzi ha segnato 18 gol (quarto miglior attacco, l’Italia ne ha segnati 21) e subiti 17 (L’Italia solo 10). Quella tra Italia e Svizzera è una sfida infinita ed equilibrata: le due nazionali si sono affrontate trentuno volte, gli azzurri sono in leggero vantaggio LWE38674con 16 successi sui 15 dei rossocrociati. 156 i gol segnati dall’Italia, 150 dagli svizzeri. Ai mondiali solo due volte i loro percorsi si sono incontrati, in entrambe le occasioni ha avuto la meglio l’Italia. L’ultimo precedente in un mondiale risale al 2015: in Portogallo gli azzurri si aggiudicarono l’ultima partita del girone per 6-4 grazie anche alla doppietta di Palmacci. Il giocatore del Catania è ancora a secco in questo mondiale, chissà se deciderà di sbloccarsi proprio con la nazionale elvetica. Il precedente più prestigioso tra le due nazionali risale alla semifinale degli europei del 2005, in cui l’Italia superò la Svizzera per 5-3 e poi conquistò il titolo. Altra sfida importante è stata la semifinale dei Giochi Europei di Baku del 2015, anche in quel caso vinse l’Italia per 7-4. L’ultima sfida tra Italia e Svizzera risale allo scorso maggio, a Salou (Spagna), dove si giocarono le qualificazioni ai World Beach Games. L’Italia si aggiudicò la finale per il terzo e quarto posto per 6-4: a segno Stankovic (2), Ott e Borer per la Svizzera; Gori (3), Zurlo (2) e Marinai per gli azzurri. Ecco la rosa di Schirinzi che domani sfiderà l'Italia ad Asuncion: Eliott, Picchieri, Wuest, Borer, Ostegen, Steinemann, Spacca, Mo, Stankovic, Ott, Hodel, Valentin.
78830492 2594533287303712 1834828943887171584 oGli altri quarti di finale. L’Italia è stata inserita nella parte di tabellone più complicata. In un'eventuale semifinale, infatti, gli azzurri si troveranno di fronte la vincente tra la corazzata Brasile e la Russia. I campioni in carica partono nettamente favoriti contro una Russia che sta giocando un pessimo mondiale, ma ha dimostrato di essere una squadra che non muore mai. Vietato sottovalutare i russi. Nell’altra parte di tabellone si affronteranno il Giappone del fenomeno Ozu e l’Uruguay di capitan Laduche. La vincente se la vedrà con Senegal o Portogallo, una sfida molto interessante. La squadra africana ha ben impressionato nella fase a gironi: una squadra fisica capitana da Ndiaye, il miglior portiere della competizione fino a questo momento. Dall’altra parte c’è il Portogallo del pallone d’oro Jordan, che ha dimostrato di poter ambire ad alzare la coppa al cielo.
Come seguire gli azzurri. La sfida andrà in scena domani (28 novembre) alle 23,25 (ora italiana) e sarà trasmessa in diretta su Sky Sport 1, Sky Sport Collection, sul sito web di RaiSport e in differita alle 0,15 su RaiSport Hd. L’Italia non vuole smettere di sognare, tutti uniti verso un obiettivo: conquistare uno storico mondiale.
Il programma dei quarti: Brasile-Russia (20,15), Senegal-Portogallo (21,50); Italia-Svizzera (23,25); Giappone-Uruguay (all’1 di notte). Tutte le partite verranno trasmesse in diretta su Sky Sport Collection.

Una grande Italia spazza via la paura e conquista il pass per i quarti di finali dei mondiali grazie alla vittoria per 6-2 sul Messico. A Los Pynandi World Cup Stadium di Asuncion gli azzurri vengono letteralmente trascinati dal fenomeno con la maglia numero 10: Gabriele Gori. Tin Tin spazza via il Messico con un’altra cinquina sotto i 36 gradi del Paraguay. Gori is on fire: quello del viareggino è il miglior inizio di sempre in un mondiale. Con la bellezza di 13 gol in sole 3 partite (attuale capocannoniere), il numero 10 migliora il suo score dello scorso mondiale alle Bahamas (concluso con 17 gol e il titolo di capocannoniere) in cui segnò 11 reti nella fase a gironi. Un marziano ad Asuncion: 38esimo gol in un mondiale per Gori, 172 gol nel solo 2019, 289 in nazionale (80 nel 2019) e 721 all-time. Il Messico porta bene all'Italbeach: anche nel 2017 gli azzurri chiusero il girone vincendo 8-1 contro i messicani, eliminati anche alle Bahamas con 0 punti. Terza vittoria del 2019 per l'Italia sul Messico. Le due nazionali, infatti, si erano già affrontate due volte in questa stagione, con gli azzurri che sono usciti vincitori da entrambe le gare: la prima 5-3 nel girone dei World Beach Games, la seconda 3-2 nell’Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup per il settimo posto (9 novembre). Adesso la vittoria più importante per strappare il pass e continuare il sogno mondiale. Con un Gori così sognare in grande è d’obbligo: adesso testa ai quarti di finale contro la Svizzera.
78242023 721995754990304 6344262060263604224 oLa cronaca della partita. L’Italia (in maglia bianca come contro l’Uruguay) parte con il solito quintetto formato da Del Mestre, Chiavaro, Gentilin, Ramacciotti e Gori. Il Messico di Raya risponde con Macias, Hernandez, Portilla, Maldonado e Villa. Pronti-via e subito primo brivido per gli azzurri: dopo 1’ di gioco Del Mestre compie una gran parata sulla girata di testa di Villa. Gli azzurri rispondono con la rovesciata di Gabriele Gori: la conclusione del numero 10 termina a lato. Dopo una fase di confusione, Gabriele Gori tutto solo non sbaglia in rovesciata per il gol del vantaggio dell’Italia. Gol importante per gli azzurri, che si tolgono di dosso la pressione di inizio match. Al 4’ gran giocata di Zurlo che si libera in area e va al tiro: sul più bello il portiere messicano Macias compie un miracolo ed evita il 2-0. Al 7’ Del Mestre sfiora il raddoppio con una gran botta da lontano che esce di un soffio. Il 2-0 arriva 3 minuti dopo: Ramacciotti ruba palla e serve bomber Gori in contropiede che di sinistro non perdona la difesa messicana. La prima frazione di gioco termina con il risultato di 2-0 per l’Italbeach. Buoni i primi 12 minuti della squadra di Del Duca, avanti grazie alla doppietta di un inarrestabile Gabriele Gori. Il secondo periodo si apre con un gol fantascientifico di Gabriele Gori: il numero 10 insacca in rete su assist di Del Mestre con una rovesciata defilata che finisce all’incrocio.

Passa appena 1 minuto e Gori firma il 4-0 in rovesciata: poker per il bomber viareggino, troppo forte per la distratta difesa messicana. Al 4’ Del Mestre compie un’altra gran parata sulla conclusione di Vizcarra. 77136929 722022734987606 3728515415224090624 oL’Italia preme: prima Corosiniti e poi Chiavaro vanno vicini al 5-0 azzurro. One-man show: al 10’ Gori, lasciato completamente solo, raccoglie l’assist su rimessa laterale di Ramacciotti e sigla di testa il 5-0. All’11’ c’è gioia anche per Zurlo che da calcio da fermo la piazza per il gol del 6-0. C’è solo l’Italia in campo, malissimo il Messico. La seconda frazione di gioco termina con la squadra di Del Duca in pieno controllo e avanti di 6 reti. Nel terzo periodo il Messico dà segni di vita: Samano, con un gran tiro al volo, perfora Carpita per il gol del 6-1. Al 3’ Chiavaro si divora il gol dopo una bella azione personale in contropiede calciando fuori. L’Italia, con Gori in panchina, abbassa troppo la guardia e al 5’ Maldonado la punisce con il gol del 6-2. Dopo i miracoli di Ramacciotti per salvare la porta azzurra, l’arbitro fischia la fine: l’Italia vince 6-2 e vola ai quarti di finale (Clicca qui per vedere tutti i gol della partita). Primo obiettivo centrato, comprensibilmente soddisfatto il ct Emiliano Del Duca: “Siamo tra le otto migliori nazionali al mondo, è già un bel risultato, ringrazio i ragazzi per quello che hanno dato. Niente è scontato ad un mondiale, se guardiamo gli altri gironi qualche big ha avuto seri problemi a testimonianza dell’alto coefficiente di difficoltà di questa competizione dove non ci sono avversari facili”. Grande determinazione da parte del veterano Simone Del Mestre: ”E’ il mio quinto mondiale ma lo vivo come fosse il primo. Siamo qui per migliorare il quarto posto della scorsa edizione. Sappiamo che non è facile ma abbiamo tutte le carte in regola per puntare in alto. Con il Messico siamo entrati in campo per vincere e non abbiamo lasciato scampo all’avversario”. Gabriele Gori ancora una volta è stato il man of the match: ”Abbiamo dimostrato che la gara con l’Uruguay è stata solo una partita sfortunata. Come con Tahiti anche con il Messico siamo stati concentrati dall’inizio alla fine dominando in lungo e largo”.
Il tabellone della seconda fase: il sogno della finale parte dalla Svizzera. Dopo il primo posto del Girone B, l’Italia va nella seconda parte del tabellone dove sfiderà giovedì (28 novembre) alle 23,25 la Svizzera di Ott e dell’attaccante del Viareggio Stankovic (vicecapocannoniere del mondiale). In un'eventuale semifinale, gli azzurri affronterebbero la vincente tra la prima del Girone D (con ogni probabilità il Brasile) e la seconda del Girone C (Russia, Senegal, Emirati Arabi o Bielorussia). A passare seconda nel gruppo degli azzurri è l'Uruguay: ai vicecampioni del mondo di Tahiti non basta la vittoria per 6-4 con la Celeste, i Tiki Toa sono clamorosamente fuori per differenza reti. L'Uruguay se la vedrà con il Giappone del fenomeno Ozu. Domani (27 novembre) le ultime gare dei gironi, poi il mondiale entrerà nella fase calda.

Las Bahamas se convierte en el primer país que prohibe los plásticos

Está en boca de todos: los plásticos están matando nuestros océanos. Generamos más del que recogemos y del que se puede soportar, así que se está convirtiendo en uno de los grandes males del siglo. Intentamos utilizar cada vez menos, pero el secreto parece que va a residir en tomar medidas más drásticas, como en Las Bahamas, que se se convertirá en el primer país que prohibe los plásticos.

Completamente involucrados en la protección del medioambiente y en la preservación de la fauna y la flora endémica, el gobierno de Las Bahamas ha decidido implantar una política de tolerancia cero con el plástico y a partir del 1 de enero de 2020 la utilización e importación de plástico y de poliestireno de un solo uso quedará prohibida en el archipiélago.

 D2 9797 Mot Library Copyright The Islands Of The Bahamas Ministry Of Tourism

La prohibición se centra en cuatro productos: pajitas, cubiertos, platos y bolsas de plástico son los 4 elementos que alcanzan esta legislación. Por lo que se refiere a lo demás, también tomarán medidas para para prohibir los globos que dañan los océanos y la vida acuática. Para ello están encontrando toda la colaboración de los hoteles, bares y restaurantes, que ya llevan un tiempo anticipándose a esta ley.

Bmot Abacos 2

Mientras llega esta prohibición en 2020, en lo que va de año la hostelería está colaborando, como el Tiamo Resort, que ya ha incorporado las pajitas de acero inoxidable reutilizables (que luego se lavan y esterilizan minuciosamente). Las bolsas de basura que se están utilizando son de bioplásticos (fabricadas con almidón de maíz, 100% renovable y compostable), se han suprimido en sus habitaciones las ammenities y todas las cucharillas son de plástico.

Bahamas

Otro ejemplo, el Atlantis Paradise Island ha eliminado las tan peligrosas pajitas y ha optado por optimizar el compostaje, además de introducir recipientes de papel para sustituir al poliestireno cuando se busquen soluciones "para llevar". Y sí, la maravilla de promover entre sus clientes el uso de botellas reutilizables con la instalación de fuentes de agua potable.

Si un lugar de consumo tan turístico está dispuesto a cambiar y a legislar para proteger sus mares y su naturaleza, lo mismo todos los demás deberíamos empezar a plantearnos hacer lo mismo y seguir disfrutando de paraísos.

Malone Interview (CNBC), Iger Book, Bubble Watch

 Cache   
People keep talking about how crazy the market is, up more than 25% this year. It's a big year to be sure. But on the the other hand, even though the market has been decent in recent years, it hasn't been particularly bubblicious.

To put the 25% return into context, I think it's a good idea to look at it over 2 years or 3 years.  Since the end of 2017, for example, the market has return an annualized 8.4%/year.  Pretty good to be sure.  Since the end of 2016, its up around 12%/year.  Going back five years, it's up 8.8%/year (these figures exclude dividends).

Not bad at all, but not bubble-like either. If you were going to train an AI machine to look for bubbles, you would look at valuations (interest rate adjusted), sentiment etc. But one of the biggest factors that I would include would be historical returns over various time frames; strong performance reinforces the positive loop of increasing positive sentiment -> higher prices -> better-looking historical returns -> increasing optimism and 'proof' (both statistical and social) of the greatness of stocks etc.

The 10-year return is 10.9%/year, but that's off a depressed level due to the great recession. Over 20 years, the market has gone up only 4%/year.

Here is a table of the S&P 500 index change over various time periods.

S&P 500 Annualized Returns Through November 2019 (excl. dvd)

1-year return:    25.30%
2-year return:      8.39%
3-year return:    11.95%
4-year return:    11.34%
5-year return:      8.81%
10-year return:  10.91%
20-year return:    3.87%
30-year return:    7.55%
50-year return:    7.31%

S&P 500 Annualized Returns Through December 1999 (excl dvd)

1-year return:   19.53%
2-year return:   23.05%
3-year return:   25.64%
4-year return:   24.28%
5-year return:   26.18%
10-year return: 15.31%
20-year return: 13.95%
30-year return:   9.67%
50-year return:   9.36%


This is pretty insane. The annualized return over 5 years to December 1999 was 26%! And we are sort of freaking out that the market is up over 25% year-to-date in a single year, and not even double digits annualized over 2 years.

So anyway, that's why it doesn't really feel like a bubble. People aren't quitting their jobs (to trade stocks), buying new cars (with their capital gains), bigger houses and things like that we saw back in 2000. Most people I talk to still tend to hate stocks, the financial crisis still fresh in their minds.


Iger Book

I just finished the Iger book, and it was also a pretty great read. Iger seems like a genuinely nice guy. CEO's tend to have an image of not being nice guys, so it's great to see someone like him make it to the top. It's possible to be decent, honest and honorable and still do well.

Buffett did mention DIS as one of the well-managed companies (along with GE at one point); his relationship with DIS goes back to when DIS bought Capital Cities during the Eisner years (and Iger was working for Thomas Murphy / Dan Burke). And I think it goes even further back than that, actually.

It's fascinating to read about the events that we've been reading about in the newspapers from the people that were involved. This one involves Buffett / Murphy / Burke, Steve Jobs, George Lucas, Pixar and a lot of what is going on in media today. This connects (unintended) to the Malone interview below.

Anyway, this book is a quick read so go get it. By the way, I have not subscribed to Disney+ yet as I am big into Netflix and there is just so much stuff there that I can barely scratch the surface of what I want to watch (by the time I cancelled the DVD part of my Netflix subscription, I had more than 400 DVD's in the queue). My favorite things are the European cop dramas (French, Belgian, German, Norwegian etc.), the Indian and Japanese shows, and of course many U.S.-based shows too. I just watched The Irishman which is really good (creepy is the special effects to make these close-to-80 year olds look middle-aged), but at the same time I also thought, gee, do we really need another wise-guy movie?

OTT Tangent
People keep talking about the competition in direct-to-consumer streaming and how increasing competition will hurt Netflix etc. This is probably true to some extent; when Netflix was the only game in town, that's one thing, but with many participants jumping in, that's another story altogether.

On the other hand, when you think about it, this is not really an either-or world. People aren't going to sit there and debate whether to switch from Netflix to Disney+ or Apple. Netflix charges $14/month or some such thing, and Disney+ is even cheaper.

A lot of people are still paying $100/month or more for the conventional video package ( I dropped that a couple of years ago mostly because I don't watch most of the channels (ESPN, for example), but what bothered me even more was that they were charging me $14/month for each cable box in the house, which seemed ridiculous to me. Those things can't cost more than $100 (look at Roku at $20; and if it actually does cost more than $100, it's for functionality that I don't need), and they are charging $14/month forever; this makes absolutely no sense.

If you cut the chord, you have $100/month in video budget you can allocate (you still need to pay for the internet), so you can have Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO and a few other things and still be under $100...


Malone Interview
There are a few annual events that are really exciting to me. Of course the Berkshire annual meeting (I just watch the video later), annual report, JPM annual report etc.

And another one of those is the CNBC John Malone interview by David Faber. Faber is one of the few people (of the reporters/anchors), if not the only one, who seems to understand the market and business.

Anyway, I jotted down some notes while watching the recent interview (done during the Liberty Media investor day). This is not everything, though, but a large part of it. He also talked about regulation, GOOG etc, for example, so go check out the video.

Here are Malone's thoughts on various topics:

Who is best positioned in streaming right now?
Malone answered by rephrasing the question to, "Who will be around in five years?"
Disney and Netflix.

DIS
Disney has great content, a great global brand, but doesn't have a large direct relationship with customers so must piggy back on those who do, like Verizon.

NFLX
Netflix, so far in the lead, good base / revenue stream.

AAPL
Apple may surprise. Slim content, but has great distribution in their direct customer relationships. They offer free for one year to buyers of AAPL products etc...
AAPL has optionality; see how it goes and decide how much they want to spend (how much they can afford).

HBO, AMZN
HBO is a decent service, but doesn't have the revenue stream to match Netflix.
AMZN has a totally different monetization strategy so... not primary biz.
Content is for marketing. AMZN may evolve to become a bundler of others' content

Tech companies want to be the platform, get info on customers, be gateway,
let others waste money on content.

DIS will be successful.

Direct relationship w/ customer in scale with growth and pricing power is a powerful business model.
DIS knows they need direct consumer relationship.

HBO Max: HBO content budget was $2bn/year.
If you want HBO, you already have it, so not much gain in new customers in the U.S.?   Malone doesn't see the growth. Maybe even attrition.
HBO budget is not enough to protect for the long term.  Takes years to develop content internationally. Don't own rights to intl distribution.  Problem seeing scale at HBO to get to top of direct consumer biz.  HBO is the same as it's been for 25 years. If you want it, you already have it so where is the growth?HBO may capture wholesale spread (as big bundle moves to direct).

ATT will face challenges. Historically has been the biggest dog in every fight, but not now, and not in this space (streaming media). About scale and globality. Need global scale, or won't get enough scale to compete in this space. This will be the challenge for ATT, HBO. FANG companies are all global. If you're only in the U.S., how do you compete?

Sports is glue that keeps big bundle together... will eventually blow up. Not sure when... big bundle still overpriced due to sports content...

Content Cost
At some point, hail Mary passes for some will prove to not be working so content cost will moderate. Some will fail (and stop spending) etc...

NFLX will have to moderate spend at some point.  Bundling of these services will happen too. Distributors may bundle too, if it reduces churn etc... will evolve like traditional cable. Comcast offers Netflix etc.

Cord cutting will level off. Erosion won't stop completely, though...

Cutting video increases margins at cable companies as margins for broadband is higher. Happening naturally.

Satellite will end up serving people with no other options, rural etc.

Linear TV will lose subscribers, ads, but as you get direct relationships, value of ads go up as you know more about customers.  Ad rev potential goes up; more focused ads etc.  Have to fight decline in reach due to decline of big bundle.  Provide content direct through app and sell content to others etc. Random access via app; if you subscribe to Discovery Channel, you get stuff through app too (not everything).

Cable industry changed when congress changed retransmission constraints; Margins started to go down. Content providers were able to extract more and more...

Will be profitable for people with unique situations, consistent, stable demand, pricing power, level of uniqueness...  those businesses ultimately gets regulated. 

Discovery
Discovery owns content globally, generating free cash, need to migrate to direct to consumer.
Malone bought more stock this week (November 2019).  Discovery will solve issues. Stock is dramatically undervalued. Malone bought $75 mn worth of stock. Growing, generating free cash. Market cap to levered free cash flow, cheapest on screen... They own all their content, generates tons of cash, investment grade b/s, they are growing while others are shrinking (5.5x cash flow). Cheap for good company...
Malone paid $28.03/share. 

CBS/VIA
They have no global presence. Lot of content is bought. CBS is totally dependent on sports rights so not sure about long-term profitability.  Not sure if CBS has enough power to carry all the channels.
VIA underinvested for many years, bought back stock at high prices, tactical mistake.
How important is MTV, Nickleodean to distributors? Question sustainability of model, and also they are U.S. only.

Yes, stock is historically cheap, but...  licensing out content to others. Ice cube melts faster when you don't put content on your own channel.

CBS/VIA needs to get global for long term sustainability. Find niche, glue to make customers sticky. Something unique.

Lions Gate
Sold LionsGate; didn't see them execute strategy of using library/content to drive Starrs. They focused too much on selling content instead of driving their own distribution.

Need global scale, or niche in small area that big guys don't care about to survive.

Wired and Wireless Together
Liberty Global followed strategy based on belief that combination of wired and wireless would lead to synergies. Turned out to be true.  Belgium, Holland (combined with Vodaphone).  Once they built scale, they were able to acquire. Synergies were real and very substantial.

In U.S, for Charter, same idea. Keep growing until they understand the economics of a combination. At the moment, not far along enough on that path.  Once scale is achieved, think about building own network. Hybrid tranmission over time. Could be joint ventures, mergers etc.

Malone interested in Altice, but Patrick wants control etc...

Uber
Not an expert, but doesn't understand Uber, how is scale going to make it profitable? Like selling hot dogs at a loss and making it up in volume. Can't see how scale changes economics. Can't understand why Dara took job.

Politics
Worries about attack on success and wealth in this country.
Worries about where country is going.

If Warren wins, wealth destruction will exceed wealth transfer.  Has places in Ireland, Canada, Bahamas etc... (that he can escape to),  but Malone rather stay here, be optimistic about balance.

Malone is Libertarian, would vote for Bloomberg.

Trump has right strategy, but not the right guy; he doesn't build a team. A lot of people that worked for him trying to take him down now.

Reviews from Michael_Novakhov (3 sites): Michael Novakhov from Michael_Novakhov (17 sites): Michael Novakhov - SharedNewsLinks℠: In a bitter British election, influence of wealthy US donors causes a stir - Europe

 Cache   
Michael_Novakhov shared this story from Newsletters feed.

Britain's Dec. 12 election is a bitter fight to shape the country's future, with voters not only hoping to chart the next steps of Brexit, but also picking between startlingly different visions of the country from right-wing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

However, it isn't just British voters who are influencing Britain's future. A number of wealthy American individuals and organizations appear also to be having a big influence on this fraught British election.

The prominent left-leaning newspaper the Guardian reported Friday that 11 wealthy American donors have given a total of more than $3.7 million to influential right-wing British groups over the past five years.

One conservative American billionaire who was having an outsize influence on right-wing groups across the pond is no longer alive. John Templeton, who died in 2008, was behind a set of foundations that gave $3.3 million to British groups, the newspaper reported.

The news comes as Washington focuses on allegations of foreign influence on U.S. elections and is a reminder that outside the United States, the problem is often seen through the opposite lens: wealthy Americans seeking to influence foreign elections.

The U.S. donations in Britain do not appear to be illegal, and some of the think tanks involved have pushed back against the Guardian's framing. One recipient of Templeton-linked money, the Legatum Institute, told the paper that it had "a strong policy of maintaining intellectual independence" despite foreign financial backing.

In a statement in response to the article, the John Templeton Foundation, one of the organizations linked to the late investor, said that it was "proud to support academic research and civil dialogue in the natural sciences, human sciences, philosophy, classical liberalism, and theology at leading universities and institutions around the world."

The report about the donations from wealthy Americans comes amid concern about the transparency of Britain's political system ahead of the election next month.

Johnson's governing Conservative Party, supported by many right-wing think tanks, has been accused of suppressing a government report on Russian influence in the British political system that may highlight donations by Kremlin-linked business executives to the party, the Times of London reported in early November.

U.S. influence is a particular area of concern. Corbyn, who pledges to take the country in a dramatically more-left-wing direction if he can form a government after the election, gave a news conference Wednesday where he unveiled previously secret British notes on negotiations for a post-Brexit bilateral trade deal with the United States.

"We are talking here about secret talks for a deal with Donald Trump after Brexit. A deal that will shape our country's future," he said, alleging that Britain's beloved but forever-troubled National Health Service would be prey in Johnson's U.S.-U.K. trade deal.

President Donald Trump has made little secret of his desire for such a trade deal or his preferred political candidates. "He would be so bad. He would take you in such a bad way. He would take you into such bad places," he said of Corbyn during a Nov. 1 interview with Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party.

The American president's personal unpopularity in Britain could mean his public interventions could backfire. But the influence of donations from rich Americans like those covered by the Guardian is harder to gauge.

Phil Bryant, the Republican governor of Mississippi and a Trump ally, has made Brexit a matter of his personal interest, forming a nonprofit organization with Farage called World4Brexit that aims to raise money to support Britain's exit from the European Union.

Supporters of World4Brexit describe it as a counterbalance to the investments of George Soros, the billionaire investor who supports many liberal causes.

Through his Open Society Foundation, Soros - another U.S. citizen - is reported to have donated about $800,000 to anti-Brexit groups, though some Conservatives in Britain have alleged the real figure is considerably higher.

Donors to a U.S.-based 501(c)(4) organization like World4Brexit can legally remain anonymous. The organizations can be harder for British authorities to scrutinize.

The political structure regarding donors and charities is different in Britain. The Legatum Institute, for example, was ordered by Britain's Charity Commission to remove a report advocating a hard Brexit from its website because it was judged to be too politically partisan for a legally registered charity.

For some of the U.S. groups sending money to Britain, the involvement may come from their donors' personal interests. Templeton, the late investor who made his fortune through the pioneering use of mutual funds, was born in the United States but had strong ties to Britain.

The billionaire renounced his American citizenship later in his life and became a British citizen, though he resided in the Bahamas, a Commonwealth nation and well-known tax haven.

With other donors, interest in Britain is more indeterminate. A foundation designed to spread the views of John Stossel, a libertarian television pundit and former Fox Business host, had given $15,000 to two British think tanks. Representatives of that foundation, the Center for Independent Thought, did not respond when asked for comment Friday.

The interest may be due to shared politics rather than personal links. In an account of his decision to become a pro-Brexit campaigner that he gave in January 2017, Bryant, the Mississippi governor, said that watching the fallout from Britain's vote to leave the EU on television the prior year had inspired him about his own country's upcoming election.

"This is Trump's first victory," Bryant recounted telling his wife in June 2016.

Rotary District 7090 Visit SXM

 Cache   

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) - Rotary District 7090 headed by District Governor Bob Artis held their district conference aboard ‘Allure of the Seas’ with a stop in St. Maarten. District 7090 were joined on the cruise by Rotary International Representative Bob Menconi.

On their arrival in St. Maarten they were met by a delegation from Rotary District 7020 headed by District Governor Delma Maduro, and the coordinators for this visit Rotarians Denise Antrobus, from the Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle and Lezlie Murch from The Rotary Club of St. Catharine’s and Rotaract Club of Niagara, Canada.

Rotary District 7090 is a district of eighty Rotary and Rotaract Clubs distributed throughout Southern Ontario, Canada and Western New York USA, twelve of their clubs were on the cruise. While Rotary District 7020 is a district with over eighty Rotary Clubs from the Islands of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Barth, St Maarten, St Martin, The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos and the US Virgin Islands.

District 7090 have been very much involved with St. Maarten since Hurricanes Irma and Maria. They are involved in a global grant to get the Exceptional School at Sister Marie Lawrence up and running, they are willing to assist whenever help is required.

The first stop of the day was to the Sister Marie Lawrence School in Middle Region. Here they viewed a power point presentation on the work so far at the school which also included a song with the title ‘Thank You Rotary from SML’ which brought the visiting Rotarians to tears.

They visited the students from Sister Marie Lawrence School who are presently based at the St. Dominic’s Primary School for some interactive projects of reading, arts etc.

District 7090 enjoyed lunch and fellowship at Big Wood on the Boardwalk with local Rotarians from St. Maarten and Anguilla. Gifts and banners were exchanged with the District Governors and visiting clubs. Tanja Frederiks from the Catholic Board was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation, with thanks for hosting the Rotary District 7090 Conference on Cruise October 23, 2019.

Their afternoon visit was to Coach Tom and Player Development which also boasts an EarlyAct Club. The interactive activities were painting a Train Engine on wood, painting an inspiration quote ‘We are stronger, we are smarter, we are kinder’ on one of the containers which houses Player Development and dressing coffee cans for the children and Earlyactors to collect can tabs to help those in Abaco and Grand Bahama after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian.

Before returning to the ship at the end of their visit Rotarian Lezlie Murch recognized Rotarian Denise Antrobus with a Paul Harris Fellow on behalf of District 7090.

REPS LIEU AND RICE CALL FOR INVESTIGATION INTO POSSIBLE PAY TO PLAY BETWEEN RNC AND TRUMP NOMINEE

 Cache   

WASHINGTON  - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) and Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-NY) called on the FBI to investigate a possible pay-to-play scheme between the Republican National Committee and President Trump’s nominee for ambassador to the Bahamas. Both Reps. Lieu and Rice are former prosecutors. 

In the letter, the Members wrote:

Dear Director Wray,

Thank you for your service. As former prosecutors, we write with deep concern about a possible pay-to-play scheme involving the Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Donald Trump’s nominee for ambassador to the Bahamas, Doug Manchester. We request that the FBI open an investigation to determine whether federal laws were violated.

In September 2019, President Trump sent a tweet praising Mr. Manchester. As reported by CBS News, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel sent an email three days later asking Mr. Manchester, whose Senate confirmation had been held up for two and a half years, for a $500,000 contribution: "Would you consider putting together $500,000 worth of contributions from your family to ensure we hit our ambitious fundraising goal?”

Mr. Manchester responded by linking the contribution to his Senate confirmation. In his email, he acknowledged that as a nominee he should not make a contribution, indicated his wife would send a $100,000 contribution anyway, and urged Ms. McDaniel to pressure the Senate Majority Leader to bring his ambassadorial confirmation up for a floor vote with a promise that his family would “respond”:

“As you know I am not supposed to do any, but my wife is sending a contribution for $100,000. Assuming I get voted out of the [Foreign Relations Committee] on Wednesday to the floor we need you to have the majority leader bring it to a majority vote … Once confirmed, I our [sic] family will respond!”

Ms. McDaniel’s fundraising request of a presidential nominee pending confirmation and Mr. Manchester’s apparent agreement if his Ambassadorship was confirmed plays to Americans’ worst fears that this administration is selling public office to the highest bidder.

The exchange may also be a violation of the law. Mr. Manchester’s email specifically copied two staffers for Senate Republicans who are members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and receive political support from the RNC. As you know, bribery of a public official is prohibited under 18 U.S.C. 201, and conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States is prohibited under 18 U.S.C. 371. We urge the FBI to investigate these allegations and reassure the American people that public office is not for sale.

We appreciate your attention to this matter and look forward to hearing from you in a timely manner.

Sincerely,

Ted W. Lieu                                       Kathleen Rice
Member of Congress                        Member of Congress

 


          

Lawmakers urge FBI to investigate possible pay-to-play scheme uncovered by CBS News

 Cache   

Representatives Ted Lieu and Kathleen Rice sent a joint letter on Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, urging him to open an investigation into a possible pay-for-play scheme involving the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump's nominee for ambassador to the Bahamas. The letter comes after CBS News reported Monday on the potential scheme.

After San Diego billionaire Doug Manchester's nomination had stalled in the Senate for nearly two and half years when RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote to him if he would put together $500,000 worth of contributions from his family, according to emails obtained by CBS News. Manchester wrote back, "As you know I am not supposed to do any," but informed McDaniel that his wife would send a contribution for $100,000 and said that once confirmed, "our family will respond!"

"Ms. McDaniel's fundraising request of a presidential nominee pending confirmation and Mr. Manchester's apparent agreement if his Ambassadorship was confirmed plays to Americans' worst fears that this administration is selling public office to the highest bidder," the Democratic representatives wrote in the letter.

In his reply to McDaniel, Manchester copied staffers for Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and Senator Jim Risch of Idaho — which the representatives said would be a violation of the law. 

"Mr. Manchester's email specifically copied two staffers for Senate Republicans who are members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and receive political support from the RNC," the representatives wrote. "As you know, bribery of a public official is prohibited under 18 U.S.C. 201 and conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States is prohibited under 18 U.S.C. 371. We urge the FBI to investigate these allegations and assure the American people that public office is not for sale."

Senator Risch informed the White House of the email, and the White House subsequently asked Manchester to withdraw. Manchester eventually withdrew himself from consideration in October, citing personal reasons. 

Earlier on Monday, Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bob Menendez also responded to the possible scheme. Warren told CBS News, "Donald Trump should be told in no uncertain terms: Stop selling government posts."

Menendez noted, "This is the most blatant process I've ever seen."

Vacances aux Bahamas, chômage mieux rémunéré que le travail : des agents Pôle emploi répondent aux clichés

 Cache   
Entrée en vigueur ce 1er novembre, la réforme de l'assurance chômage risque pourtant d'assombrir encore le quotidien des demandeurs d'emploi. Pourquoi ? D'abord parce que le nombre de personnes indemnisées va brutalement chuter, passant de 2,6 millions à 1,3 million. Ensuite parce que, à compter du 1er avril 2020, le montant moyen des indemnités va dévisser (Lire notre article : « Je n'ai jamais vu ça, un durcissement aussi violent » : des agents de Pôle emploi « horrifiés » par la réforme).
« Derrière toutes ces réformes, il y a des conséquences humaines très graves, insiste Gaëlle Moreau, porte-parole de l'association AC ! Agir ensemble contre le chômage. Les gens ne peuvent plus payer leur loyer, ni leur facture d'énergie. Encore moins manger. On va bientôt pouvoir travailler un jour par mois et ne plus être considéré comme chômeur. Les gens n'arriveront pas à vivre. » Bien des agents de Pôle emploi appréhendent le printemps et l'obligation d'annoncer des indemnités ridicules à des personnes qui ont pourtant travaillé. Leur direction semble d'ailleurs partager leurs inquiétudes puisque, dans certaines agences, il est prévu de recruter des vigiles ! Mais tout cela n'est pas encore suffisamment violent pour l'éditorialiste parisien.

Primera parte de Aldo Rosado-Tuero y su riesgosa y peligrosa relación con Julio Martínez Andrade, UN CAIN CUBANO, que se prestó a traicionar a sus hermanos levantados en armas contra la tiranía Castrista

 Cache   
Nota del Bloguista de Baracutey Cubano

Alerto que no se deben creer   ¨a pie juntillas¨ los relatos oficialistas Castristas y mucho menos aquellos  relacionados con  labores de Inteligencia y Contrainteligencia. He leido, por ejemplo,  hasta tres versiones diferentes  de un mismo hecho como fue la operación para acabar con los alzados, si mal no recuerdo, de la oriental región de Gibara. Esos  relatos manipulados   persiguen:   adoctrinar,  hacer una labor de ¨profilaxis¨ y hasta no ¨quemar¨ a algunas personas que pudieran aún estar activas en esas labores a favor de la tiranía.

Nota del Bloguista

El periodista e historiador Castrista y ex miembro del MINIT, ya fallecido en Miami, Juan Carlos Fernández (seudónimo) en su libro Todo es Secreto Hasta un Día (en Cuba me dijeron varias personas que Juan Carlos Fernández había pertenecido a la Sección o Buró Bandas en Pinar del Río; es posible que así sea, pues los diferentes capítulos de ese libro están dedicados a combatientes de la Seguridad del Estado de Pinar del Río), la labor como agente de Tony Santiago llevó a la neutralización de la ¨Operación Silencio¨, de suministro de alimentos y armas mediante ¨drops¨ en paracaidas a los grupos de alzados en el Escambray por parte de la CIA, ya que en un viaje a EE.UU. le había hecho llegar a la CIA un mapa con las ubicaciones para hacer esos lanzamientos; la inmensa mayoría de esos suministros cayeron en manos de las tropas Castristas. Por su labor se hizo la detención de fabricantes de ¨patas de elefante¨y otros materiales explosivos (supongo que hayan sido fusilados) en La Habana así como la detención del Comandante Jesús Carreras, al que el rencoroso Che Guevara se la guardaba desde que estaban en El Escambray.

(Juan Carlos Fernández, hablando por teléfono, y Norberto Fuentes en Miami)

Jesús Carreras era Comandante del Segundo Frente del Escambray y no había querido someterse a la jefatura del Che Guevara y habían tenido sus desavenencias. Jesús Carreras en su conspiración contra el Castrimo confió en Tony Santiago que era Comandante del Directorio Revolucionario 13 de Marzo en el Escambray y esa fue su perdición; fue fusilado. Tony Santiago era veterano de guerra de los EE.UU. y había participado en la guerra del Pacífico contra Japón; participó en la batalla de Iwo Jima, uno de los combates más sangrientos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial donde se distinguió en el combate.

Una observación sobre ese libro de Juan Carlos Fernández: En su primera edición, 1976, en la parte del testimonio fotográfico habían fotocopias de cartas de alzados, como la del Congo Pacheco, que se podían leer con el auxilio de una lupa y comprender el carácter patriótico de la lucha de esos alzados; en la segunda edición del libro, 1981, esas cartas y documentos fueron eliminados.

MEMORIAS DE LOS DÍAS DEL VIENTO Y DEL FUEGO. RELATOS VERÍDICOS DE LA LUCHA CONTRA LA TIRANÍA CASTRISTA


Nota  del director de Nuevo Acción: Hoy traemos un relato en que un hermano comunista infiltra a un movimiento anticastrista para liquidar a dos sus hermanos, alzados contra los opresores castristas.   El relato está avalado por la propia tiranía que lo explica todo en este capítulo del libro del agente de la Seguridad del Estado cubana Raúl Fernández, quién firma el libro con su nombre de guerra dentro de los servicios castristas:  “Juan Carlos Fernández”.

Este verídico relato está siendo preparado como un argumento para un corto metraje que aspiramos a rodar con TVMambisa y que titularemos “El Caín Cubano”.

UN CAIN CUBANO (tal y como lo relatan sus propios protagonistas castristas)

“Aquel día jamás se me olvidará. Fue el 8 de enero de 1965 y había una fiesta en el pueblo. Pero yo no asistí. Hice lo que hacía meses tenía premeditado; presentarme a Seguridad del Estado con el fin de ayudar a acabar con los bandidos. (Continuará)

UN TREMENDO TRIUNFO DE LA RESISTENCIA ANTICASTRISTA


Por Aldo Rosado-Tuero

Desde el principio de la llegada de Fidel Castro al poder, cuando se comienza a ver brotar el enorme rechazo al totalitarismo comunista entre los que habíamos sido opositores a la dictablanda de Batista, principalmente los provenientes del Movimiento 26 de Julio, el incipiente totalitarismo, comenzó la táctica de tratar de infiltrar a los grupos que nos le oponíamos; pero, ya sea, bien porque sus aparatos de inteligencia aún no se habían perfeccionado o por el hecho que la mayoría de los que ya conspirábamos en contra de la implantación de una tiranía comunista, proveníamos del Movimiento 26 de Julio, nos permitió a nosotros también lograr un cierto grado de infiltración entre los que trataban de infiltrarnos a nosotros.

Hoy voy a relatar lo que constituyó una victoria de nuestra infiltración y como se eliminó a un peligroso grupo de infiltrados castristas que—al igual que lo hiciera después La Red Avispa—ya desde fines del 1960 y principios de enero del 1961, tenían la misión de marchar a los Estados Unidos, para espiar a favor del castrismo.

Desde temprano en el 1959, comenzamos nuestra tarea de preparar condiciones para oponernos por las armas a la instauración de lo que veíamos venir, como una tiranía totalitaria de signo comunista, junto a un buen grupo de ex combatientes tanto de las sierras como del llano, que no estábamos dispuestos a observar en silencio como nos aherrojaban la patria.

En la esquina de las calles Luz Caballero e Industria, en la ciudad de Caibarién, existía una enorme arboleda de mangos en la que funcionaba la gallería de mi tío Ramón “Mongo” Rosado. Allí, con la anuncia del propietario, se estableció el cuartel general de los que ya preparábamos alzamientos, ayudábamos a los alzados del Escambray y del frente Norte de Las Villas, repartíamos propaganda, realizábamos sabotajes y conseguíamos armas, municiones y medicinas. Por la gran cantidad de personas que visitaban diariamente la gallería donde funcionaba una valla y los muchos gallos de distintos propietarios que mi tío cuidaba, el lugar era perfecto para reunirnos sin levantar grandes sospechas.

Pero parece ser que el G-2 comenzó a sospechar y se empezaron a aparecer por la gallería una serie de personas de las que los anticomunistas sospechábamos que se dedicaban a la chivatería. Entre ellos estaba un primo hermano mío—cuyo hermano mayor más adelante dirigió el piquete de milicianos que nos detuvo, entre muchos otros cangrejeros, a mi tío Mongo y a mí—que me conocía de mis correrías en el clandestinaje contra Batista, al que muy inteligentemente me le acerqué un día y le dije- “Oye me parece que andamos en lo mismo y no hemos coordinado”. Su respuesta fue franca—tal vez producto de sus pocos años y su inexperiencia como chivato—“Coño y yo que creía que tú estabas con los enemigos”. Mi primo tragó el anzuelo y todos los días yo le sacaba las informaciones que él conseguía.

Desde antes de la conversación con mi primo chivatón, a la gallería acudía, con dos o tres subordinados, soldados del Ejército Rebelde, el capitán Tomasito Pena, hermano del difunto Comandante Felix Pena, ¿suicidado?, después que como Presidente del tribunal revolucionario de Santiago de Cuba, absolviera a los pilotos de la Fuerza Aérea de la República. Tomasito había llevado varios ejemplares de gallos finos para que mi tío se los cuidara y era visita seguida de la gallería.

(Comandante Antonio ¨Tony¨ Santiago, agente ¨Oliverio¨para la Seguridad del Estado )

El capitán Pena, unos días después de mi conversación con mi primo en que le hice creer que yo estaba en lo mismo que él, comenzó a tratarme con mucha deferiencia y a tratar de hacerse amigo mío y de algunos de los patriotas anticomunistas que me acompañaban.

Por los últimos días del 1960, no sé si por una indiscreción de mi primo o de Tomás Pena, o de otro de los infiltrados castristas, que habían sido infiltrados por los anticastristas, el movimiento subterráneo se enteró que se preparaba una importante misión, por parte del G-2, mediante la cual introducirían en los EE.UU. a un grupo de espías, entre los que se encontraba un ex Comandante de la sierra, que se estaba haciendo pasar como enemigo de la revolución. En los primeros días de enero, ya la resistencia anticastrista tenía más detalles de la “operación”. Los planes de los falsos anticastristas eran llevarse el magnífico velero “El Pensativo”, de Arcadio Oliva fondeado en Caibarién y con el que marcharían hacia los Estados Unidos, en su importante misión, ya que la tiranía esperaba la inminente invasión de los cubanos que se entrenaban en Guatemala y la isla Vieques.

De inmediato la alta dirigencia de la resistencia, avisó a Miami. Un importante dirigente nos notificó que ya se había avisado y que Antoñico “El Isleño” se encargaría de eso.

Antoñico “El Isleño”, Antonio Pérez Quesada, era el hombre que mejor se conocía los cayos y los canalizos de la Costa Norte de Las provincias centrales de Cuba y además, sabía perfectamente las rutas de escape de Caibarién a La Florida. Por eso lado, se podría dormir tranquilo. El "él se encargará" era más que una frase, una seguridad para los que conocíamos del coraje y del patriotismo de "Antoñico".

La resistencia, muy cuidadosamente montó una guardia en el muelle donde atracaba “El Pensativo”; y así se pudo avisar de inmediato a Miami, la noche en que los castristas zarparon. Era el 9 de enero del 1961.

Yo al menos no supe nada más sobre el asunto, hasta unos días después de llegar a Miami, el 11 de julio de 1961. Aquí me enteré que “El Pensativo” fue interceptado en aguas cerca de Cayo Sal por una lancha artillada procedente de Miami y que fue hundido, pereciendo todos los que en él viajaban. Unos años después, en una clara mañana con un mar en calma total, Antoñico me llevó al lugar del hundimiento y pude ver en el fondo los restos del que había sido unos de los veleros más hermosos y famosos del Puerto de Caibarién.

(De espaldas, el reportero Oscar Angulo, de pie, con el sombrero australiano Aldo Rosado-Tuero en el viaje en que comprobó por sus propios ojos, la derrota inflingida al castrato que narra en este artículo. Quizás en esta foto se encuentre Antoñico ¨El Isleño¨, pero Aldo no lo señala en el post de donde tomé la foto. Comentario del bloguista de Baracutey Cubano)

Pasaron muchos años antes de que la tiranía hablara del incidente y de esta importante derrota inflingida a ellos por los anti castristas.

La tiranía ha reconocido que el Comandante que dirigía la misión era el comandante del Directorio Revolucionario, Antonio "Tony" Santiago, que había actuado en las montañas del Escambray, durante la lucha contra Batista y que siguiendo instrucciones de la Seguridad castrista se había infiltrado en alguno de los grupos contrarrevolucionarios siendo en realidad “El agente Oliverio”, del G2 y que venía a Miami, con una importante misión, tal vez si más importante, que la que llevaron a cabo años después, los integrantes de la Red Avispa.

Según la tiranía, allí murieron, además de Tony Santiago, Juan Bautista Hernández, Lisandro Sánchez Nieto y Francisco Pequeño Saéz.

Pero si la memoria no me engaña yo tenía la seguridad de que en ese velero venían además un gran grupo de soldados rebeldes, comandados por el capitán Tomás Pena.

Ahora la tiranía no habla de esos, tal vez para minimizar la derrota, pero lo cierto es que yo no ví más nunca a Tomasito Pena en la gallería y abandoné el país sin saber nunca más de él.

Lo cierto es que fue un gran triunfo de la resistencia interna y de los bravos que desde aquí arriesgaban a diario la vida, llevando pertrechos, realizando ataques armados, infiltrando y ex filtrando combatientes anti castristas.

NOTA: Este es mi humilde homenaje a un hombre, acusado de "pirata" por la tiranía, a un pescador que siempre estuvo dispuesto a llevar lo que fuera a los costas cubanas, cuyo nombre (Antonio Pérez Quesada) habrá de aparecer algún día en la Historia patria y al que un día, "después del viento y del fuego" habrá que levantarle un monumento en mi querido Caibarién, muy cerca del mar al que él tanto amó y en el que vivió dos tercios de su vida.

Mi tío Mongo fue condenado a varios años de cárcel y murió poco después de ser liberado, de un cáncer, que se comenzó a manifestar en las mazmorras castristas y que nunca le trataron mientras permaneció en prisión. Mi primito chivato, aún está en Cuba y no sé si ya se arrepintió, como su hermano mayor, que anda por estos lares. Razón por la que no doy su nombre.

Paradise Island in the Bahamas

 Cache   
Paradise Island is an island in the Bahamas formerly known as Hog Island. The island is located just off the shore of the city of Nassau, which is itself located on the northern edge of the island of New Providence. It is best known for the sprawling resort Atlantis with its extensive water park rides, pools, beach, restaurants, walk-in aquarium and casinos. Paradise Island is connected to the island of New Providence by two bridges that cross Nassau Harbour. The first was built in 1966 by Resorts International, and the second in the late 1990s. A small airstrip existed on the island from 1989 to 1999 to serve the resort. Prior to 1989 the airport was a seaplane base with a ramp for aircraft to leave the water. In 1989 a 910-metre (3,000 ft) runway was added to the airport.    read more...

Fútbol playa sigue hablando portugués pese a pérdida de hegemonía de Brasil

 Cache   

Asunción, 1 dic (EFE).-El fútbol playa sigue hablando portugués con la victoria este domingo de Portugal frente a Italia (4-6), en un Mundial en el que se rompió la hegemonía de Brasil, pentacampeona y que partía como gran favorita de la cita FIFA de Paraguay, la primera celebrada en un país sin salida al mar.

La paradoja es que 'Os lusitanos' cayeron en la fase de grupos frente a Brasil, a la que Portugal ya había eliminado en 2015, cuando consiguió su primer título del mundo, en la final contra Tahití.

En este Mundial, Brasil no ha pasado de cuartos, al perder ante la poderosa y dos veces campeona Rusia, luego eliminada por Italia.

Precisamente ha sido contra Italia cuando se ha visto la mejor versión de Portugal, con una superioridad clara sobre los azzurri, despuntando el veterano Jordan, con tres dianas, o Leo Martins, con dos.

Consagración también para el arqueo Andrade, Guante de Oro de este Mundial FIFA 2019 jugado en tierras guaraníes.

Fue el colofón de un torneo en el que Portugal hizo uso de un fútbol recio e inapelable para deshacerse de rivales de menor enjundia como Nigeria (12-1), Omán (3-1) y Senegal (4-2).

En el ínterin quedó esa derrota ante Brasil (9-7), un resultado que no anticipaba la posterior trayectoria de las dos selecciones, una con la corona, su segunda, y la otra destronada.

Sin embargo, no le fue fácil a Portugal doblegar este sábado a Japón, que llegó invicto a semifinales y forzó la fase de penaltis tras terminar la prórroga con un empate a tres goles.

Pero ahí brillaron bazas portentosas de los lusos como los hermanos Be y Leo Martins, con dos y un gol, respectivamente, contra los Samuráis.

Dentro de un equipo que tuvo su mayor virtud en su eficiencia como bloque, como apuntó Be Martins tras ese encuentro contra los nipones.

'Esa no es una victoria de los hermanos Martins, sino de Portugal. Sin la confianza del equipo, ninguno podría lograr nada. Esa es nuestra virtud: todos compartimos responsabilidades y cumplimos', dijo el defensa.

Una filosofía que se cumplió con creces este domingo en el estadio Los Pynandi, o píe descalzo en guaraní, el ancestral idioma hablado en Paraguay, y ante un Italia que venía de tumbar al verdugo de Brasil, Rusia, que se hizo con el bronce en este Mundial.

Pero los italianos acusaron el esfuerzo de ese partido y en especial su goleador, Gabrielle Gori, que no marcó ninguna diana, pese a lo cual se erigió en el máximo artillero del torneo, con 16 tantos.

Los lusitanos, por su parte, se agigantaron con la puntería de Jordan, el motor de los portugueses en la final, y un Andrade que fue un valladar y paró un penalti a Gori.

Portugal se aposenta así sobre un trono que había dejado vacante Brasil cuando cayó ante Rusia en cuartos.

Todo un jarro de agua fría para la Canarinha, la potencia mundial, que se ha llevado cinco de las diez ediciones del Mundial de Fútbol Playa organizado por la FIFA, la última en 2017 en Bahamas, que ganó ante Tahití, la eterna secundaria.

Con esos antecedentes nadie dudaba de que Brasil estaba en Paraguay para llevarse un sexto Mundial.

Y es que los brasileños se pasearon ante Omán (8-2) y Nigeria (12-2), y en medio se impusieron a Portugal, en el único choque en el torneo entre dos campeones del mundo.

Los cuartos, a vida o muerte, no perdonaron a la Canarinha, con una Rusia implacable (4-3) que apeó a la hasta entonces vigente campeona de un Mundial por el que ha pasado con más pena que gloria.

La próxima edición del Mundial de Fútbol Playa FIFA será en Moscú, en 2021, ya que desde 2011 se celebra cada dos años. EFE
