Effects of entomopathogenic fungi used as plant inoculants on plant growth and pest control

Research output: Book/ReportPh.D. thesisResearch

Entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) of the genus Metarhizium and Beauveria are able to endophytically colonize a wide variety of plant species, providing protection against arthropod pests; besides increase the plant development; and act as phytopathogen antagonists. The main objective of the present project was to evaluate the potential of entomopathogenic fungi as plant inoculants against the two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae and the effects on plant growth promotion. Tritrophic effects were also studied, by evaluating prey consumption and feeding behavior of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis. The evaluated strategy has several potential benefits compared to the sole use of EPF as contact biocontrol agents, as it may control both pests and phytopathogens; be compatible with other natural enemies; provide limited exposure of fungal propagules to adverse environmental conditions, and accelerate seed emergence and plant growth. Considering this, the effects of seed inoculation using two isolates of Metarhizium robertsii and Beauveria bassiana were evaluated at University of Copenhagen, Denmark, on plant development (i.e. biomass and yield) and T. urticae population growth in a model system with bean plants under greenhouse conditions. Effects on feeding performance of P. persimilis were also studied in laboratory conditions. In Brazil, inoculation studies with EPF were conducted at ESALQ/USP with strawberry plants in greenhouse conditions and in the field in four commercial production areas of strawberries in Atibaia-SP and Senador Amaral-MG. In greenhouse studies, the effects of 15 isolates of Metarhizium spp., 5 isolates of B. bassiana and 5 of Cordyceps (= Isaria) fumosorosea were studied, whereas in the commercial area one isolate of Metarhizium and Beauveria was used. Strawberry roots were inoculated by submersion in fungal suspensions, and the population growth of spider mites, while plants development was assessed by measuring root lengths, biomass of roots and leaves, and the strawberry fruit weight. The results showed a significant reduction in T. urticae population and in general better development of plants in both crops. The production of string beans and strawberry fruits were higher in inoculated plants than in non-inoculated plants. There was no difference in predation rate and feeding behavior of the predator mite P. persimilis towards T. urticae from fungal inoculated and uninoculated plants. In the commercial strawberry production areas there were significantly smaller populations of T. urticae and fewer symptoms of plant diseases on plants in the fungal treated beds compared to plants in untreated beds. The results obtained by this project bring a new perspective on the use of Metarhizium and Beauveria as plant protecting agents revealing that the use of entomopathogenic fungi as plant inoculants may be a promising strategy.

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14 Whether you’re superstitious or not, the number 13 when it came to fantasy football was unlucky for a good number of people. As the gameweek with the same number, the alleged curse struck those who had kept faith in Mason Mount as he started the match at the Etihad on the bench, whilst Raheem Sterling continued to do nothing but a wrongly disallowed goal at the end – he did actually play in that match, you know – and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, in a ‘sure fire’ of a game against Southampton, also only raised an assist. Those who captained Vardy, however, thinking he was going to follow on from what he did against Arsenal, would be entitled to wonder what the fuss of such a ‘hex’ was all about, however, whilst those who thought they’d take a chance on Heung-Min Son were also handsomely rewarded. Perhaps, you know, that’s just the nature of FPL and that could be pretty much any week. As much as it’s a game of skill with the inclusion of the right players and, in the case of the price changes, the right timing, there’s sometimes no accounting for what can happen on the pitch in those 90 minutes. Especially this season, where VAR still can’t be used correctly in a depressing amount of occasions a third of the way in. If you are, again, looking at your team in horror, I’ll just reiterate what Kop said last week in that the barrage of gameweeks between now and the start of 2020 mean that you can transform your fortunes within a short amount of time. Transform to what remains to be seen, however this article will hopefully point you in the right direction! I’ll just say to not forget there’s a midweek deadline next week and that the large amount of games usually means the festive period sees a lot of rotation within Premier League squads. It’s good to have players on your bench that will actually play, should their services be called upon. Goalkeepers My first recommendation for goalkeepers is the Fantasy Football 24/7 favourite, Nick Pope. Having kept a clean sheet and collected two bonus points for two games in a row, the England player is now joint-second with Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale when it comes to points, as Kasper Schmeichel and Mathew Ryan both sit pretty at the top with four more. As many have opted for him to be their only playing ‘keeper, that means he has amassed 54 of your total points total so far, certainly not bad when you consider the fact you don’t expect much from the guy who stands between the sticks. Following on from the 18 points collected against West Ham and Watford, the fella who will now set you back £4.7m can look forward to playing against Crystal Palace, a team that has scored as many as Newcastle with 11 – only Watford have scored fewer. That’s 0.85 per match and so it’s clear to see where the Eagles’ problems lie. Things do get quite a bit tougher for Burnley over the next two matches, as Man City then visit Turf Moor on Tuesday night and it’s a trip to a potentially revitalised Spurs shortly afterwards. Still, there are always those save points you can rely on him, as Aston Villa, Chelsea and Leicester are the only sides that have left him with just one point so far this season. If you’ve got a bit more cash to spare and you don’t already have three Leicester players, you may like to consider the Foxes’ Kasper Schmeichel, costing £5.2m. Whilst his 33 saves would put him 13th in the table when compared to his fellow gloved-players, the Dane has proved to be one of the main assets in Brendan Rodgers’ team as he has kept six clean sheets. That’s the highest in the league at the moment – which has, of course, been very handy for owners of Soyuncu, Pereira and Chilwell – and nicely coincides with the fact he has conceded the fewest number of goals of any ‘keeper who has played all 1,170 minutes. It’s not exactly a shock the guy, who was the target of Palace fans’ paper aeroplanes early in the month, is now able to boast having the highest number of FPL points in that position. You now have to look back to the match against Burnley in Gameweek 9 for the last time Peter’s son had to pick the ball up from the back of his own net and the games between now and Gameweek 18 show there is a real chance for that excellent form to continue. First up will be Everton at home and with a record of only 13 scored so far this campaign, a Leicester clean sheet and the vultures sitting in the trees next to Marco Silva look more and more likely. Fast forward just three days and it’s then the turn of Watford to pay a visit to the King Power Stadium, a squad languishing at the bottom of the table, both when it comes to the league and the amount of goals. Eight scored in 13 is relegation fodder. As if those two games weren’t enough, there are then games against Aston Villa and Norwich before tougher fixtures against Man City and Liverpool that will really test their credentials. My final pick is more of a punt as Alex McCarthy has only played three games for Southampton so far this season, which happen to be the last trio of fixtures where he has collected just five points in total. However, in his defence, two of those were against Man City and Arsenal and he now has five games ahead of him which could be pivotal to the Saints calling themselves a Premier League club next August. Costing just £4.3m, he seems to be favoured over counterpart Angus Gunn and will theoretically face the aforementioned Watford this week, a team that, along with their current dire state of affairs, hasn’t beaten the Saints in the last four meetings across all competitions. Norwich then make the journey to St Mary’s for the Wednesday night tie who, funnily enough, have scored the same amount of goals as their hosts at the time of writing, as an assist in the last game is all that remains of the Pukki Party we all invited ourselves to at the start of the season. After that, ties against Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa then await. Perhaps, with Pope having those two tough games, this guy with his cheap pricetag could be your second-choice instead of the likes of the non-playing David Button, if you have a transfer that needs to be used up and £0.3m going spare? Defenders Liverpool have not had the best defensive record so far this season, quite the contrast to the last campaign when they kept 21 clean sheets. In 13 games, there have been two such occasions from the 3-0 and 1-0 wins against Burnley and Sheffield United, so the premium pricetags of those players do not seem such great value at the moment. Frustratingly, it’s been consolation or error-based goals that have been conceded, which have led FPL managers to receive the confirmation of what they had been expecting for the entirety of the match beforehand. Such inevitability has now made us all question: would we have taken on these players, had we known there’d be so few clean sheets this season? On the plus side, however, the next four games bring with them both clean sheet and goal scoring potential for the Merseysiders and so I still feel happy to recommend a player who is more than capable either end of the pitch. Andy Robertson is the second-most transferred-in player so far this gameweek, as he is beating his £0.2m-more-expensive colleague Trent Alexander-Arnold in their assists competition. Crucially for us, there is also a nine-point gap between the two players in the FPL stakes, with Virgil Van Dijk now 21 points behind. The last five fixtures have been at the centre of the left back’s points haul, as he set up three and scored one himself, netting 30 points in the process. The 30,000 people who, at the time of writing, have put their faith in him and pressed the ‘buy’ button this week are no doubt buoyed by the fact Brighton are coming to Anfield. That’s a side that has lost all seven of its last encounters with the Reds, having failed to find the back of the net in the most recent trio of fixtures. Indeed, it’s a side that Robertson likes to play against, as he has featured in all three of those games and also scored and set up another in the Seagulls’ 4-0 drubbing in the last game of the 17/18 campaign. Before you know it, the midweek Gameweek 15 fixture will come, which just happens to be a Merseyside derby against Everton, whilst Bournemouth away and a visit from Watford both carry with them great potential as they are two sides that Liverpool love to score a good few against. The Scot could well be in and among the points for all of those ties, however it is worth noting he does not have a game in Gameweek 18, as the meeting at the London Stadium against West Ham will need to be rescheduled. Following my recommendation of Kasper Schmeichel, it may come of no surprise that my next recommendation is from the same team. This one, however, bears a slight resemblance to Lord Farquaad from Shrek. Caglar Soyuncu has proven to be a shrewd signing from SC Freiburg, as Harry Maguire’s move in the opposite direction hasn’t quite had the same effect yet. Whilst his FPL scores were quite average from Gameweeks 1 to 9, the Turkish international has earned himself 34 points in the last four matches, with the goal in the 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace the icing on the cake. That has led to him leading the way in the defensive form stakes – with an impressive 9.3 – and the guy is fourth when it comes to clearances with 74. It’s no shock that his price has risen from the £4.5m it was at the start of the season to the £5.0m it is now and, should the Foxes continue to keep up their excellent form, it will only go higher. Now in 15.8 per cent of teams, no doubt because he is cheaper than his defensive counterparts of Jonny Evans at £5.1m and, most significantly, the £5.8m Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira at £6.4m, the number four faces the Toffees this weekend. That’s a team which doesn’t have the greatest threat on goal as three in the last three accurately reflects their 13 in 13 over the course of the season. As you’ll have read from Kasper Schmeichel’s appraisal, Watford, Aston Villa and Norwich then make up the next trio of games, three of the current bottom six sides. Another player who follows on well from another goalkeeper suggestion is Burnley’s Charlie Taylor. Sean Dyche no doubt gave his side a rollicking at half time in their 3-0 defeat against Sheffield United and this fella came on to shore things up in the remainder of that tie. Since then, the Lancashire side has kept two clean sheets making a season-total of five – the second highest in the league, now in company with Man City and Sheffield United – and this guy presents great value at just £4.2m. Though he costs £0.8m more at the time of writing, it’s also worth mentioning James Tarkowski as the number five picked up an outstanding 17 points in the 3-0 dismantling of Watford, which also followed on from the 12 collected in the same result against West Ham before the international break. Along with the all-important ‘zero’ in the scoreline of the opponents, these tallies were also created from two assists and a goal which is about half way to what he managed in the whole of the last season. The Burnley duo’s fixtures this week and then in Gameweeks 17 to 19 are rosy, however there is a small matter of facing Man City and Spurs in-between – two teams that will definitely be looking up the league to reach their target set at the start of the campaign. Don’t let that put you off, however, especially if you can rotate your defensive line up, as the visit of Crystal Palace could make it a hat trick of clean sheets and the ties against Newcastle, Bournemouth and Everton around the same time as we hear jingle bells and tidings of joy also bring great potential. I’ll finish this section by just adding a note about John Lundstram, on the presumption that you own him. There’s a good chance you do, as his ownership is now at 43.5 per cent – a figure that has consistently increased week-on-week and is only surpassed by Tammy Abraham, who is picked by almost 51 per cent of FPL managers. In the case of the Sheffield United player, he now has more FPL points than Mo Salah, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling! With a lot of the most popular backs theoretically having favourable fixtures this gameweek as Liverpool face Brighton, Leicester welcome Everton and Chelsea take on West Ham, it may be the case that you need to place the Blades’ number seven on your bench if you play a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 formation. Well, try not to worry too much about doing that, even with the assist that he managed to pick up against Man United and that 21-point haul against Burnley still fresh in the memory. Though Sheffield United have proved many doubters wrong this season, as they currently lie sixth in the table, Chris Wilder’s men do not have the best record against their opponent this weekend, Wolves. Of the past seven meetings between the two sides, they have won just one and you have to look back further to 2002 for the last time the northerners made the journey to the Midlands and came away with a win. In addition, Nuno Espírito Santo’s squad have found some great form, as 14 September was the last occasion they lost in the league. Rest assured that a look at Lundstram’s fixtures afterwards, between Gameweeks 15 and 19, will make you want him back in your starting XI. Midfielders Forgive me for starting this section with a Christmas number, but for Heung Min-Son, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Year on year, he always seems to pick up in form around the tail end of November and on the run up to Christmas. Last year, he scored one in Gameweek 13 and then proceeded to find the back of the net a whopping seven times in all competitions to see out the rest of the calendar year. Of those, six were in the Premier League, which accounted for half of his entire season. Rewind further to Christmas 2017 and it was four over the same period, which was still an impressive third of that campaign’s total. Going into Gameweek 14, the South Korean has scored four and set up six so far this season, of which he has beaten the goalkeeper in each of the last two games and assisted in three of the most recent four. If you had gone the opposite direction to the hoards of FPL managers who sold him in Gameweek 10, he would have brought you 28 points in that timeframe. Perhaps it’s not always best to follow the trends, which is, perhaps, an ironic thing to say as the number seven is the most-bought midfielder this gameweek – and by a country mile at that. At half time of the Spurs v Olympiacos match, 185,000 people – equivalent to the population of Swindon – had already seen it fit to include him in their team. Looking ahead to this weekend, Son faces Bournemouth in what will be Jose Mourinho’s first home tie in the league. I can’t speak for the Portuguese manager’s record against Eddie Howe’s men; however the South Korean’s is rather impressive, as he has scored five goals in six games against them, of which three of those have been at home. His five games against Man United admittedly haven’t produced anything; however Sheffield United showed that the Red Devils aren’t exactly the strongest at the back – especially if Phil Jones plays. Things are better against the opposition in Gameweek 16 as the 27-year-old has registered three assists in as many fixtures against Burnley. Whilst Son is leading the way on midfielder acquisitions, James Maddison is still proving to be popular as 63,000 people have brought him in – or, following on the UK town theme, the population of Kettering. In the case of the Leicester player, his popularity has existed for a longer period of time as you have to look back to Gameweek 8 for the last time more people sold him than brought him in. Those five rounds since then have seen the £7.5m player score twice and set up another, which accounts for roughly half of his season total already. Indeed, the 65 points he has to his name so far make him the highest-scoring Foxes midfielder, sitting an impressive fifth place when compared to Premier League players of the same position. Leicester have been enjoying a nice run of fixtures for a while now, as Arsenal were also easily dispatched in Gameweek 12 – thanks, in part, to a Maddison goal. As already mentioned, that run continues as Everton are next in line to try and keep the number 10 under control. He didn’t manage to do anything in the one time he has played the Toffees, where his team lost 2-1, however you’d be forgiven for predicting that both of those things could be very different this weekend as form and circumstances are poles apart. The next opponent a few days later, Watford, is a team the 23-year-old from Coventry has already scored against, which could also be a good omen. Though I have made the case for two of the most brought-in midfielders, I feel the need to also briefly mention the player most people are waving goodbye to – Raheem Sterling. The thorn in many an FPL manager’s side in the last three gameweeks, you can understand the decision for giving up as that £12m has been swallowed up in a single player who has scored just one goal and an assist in six matches. Of course, you could argue that, had the player – who is opening talks with his club over a new contract at the moment – had the goal allowed by VAR at the end of the Chelsea match, as it should have been, the number of sales could be much lower than the Black Friday levels they are at the moment. I’ll be the first to say that I have already sold him, making a very rare early transfer – something I usually don’t do and actually wouldn’t recommend – as the price changes and resultant affordability made it a necessary evil. You may also remember my last tips article which said to sell him, which turned out to be just before he only scored one point against Southampton at home. However, one thing to take into account, if you are also considering getting rid of him, is that Sergio Aguero’s injury and Gabriel Jesus theoretically starting presents an interesting fact. Of the four most recent games the 24-year-old has started with the Brazilian and not the Argentinian, he has averaged 10.8 points per match and scored five of his seven goals. That’s in stark comparison to only 3.3 points per match in the time he has started alongside Sergio. Of course, that statistic doesn’t take into account the opposition, or other factors, but it’s worth noting. Looking elsewhere within the Man City squad, Kevin de Bruyne once again showed his worth as he scored his third goal of the season in the 2-1 victory over Chelsea. Looking ahead to the trip to Newcastle, the Belgian has registered four assists and beaten the goalkeeper once in the five games he has played against them, whilst Burnley, the next opponent, also don’t like playing against him. In four meetings, they have let in one of his goals and allowed him to set up two others. Another player that FPL managers are, understandably, releasing from their side – and collecting the cash they have accrued in the process – is Mason Mount. Ahead of West Ham, Aston Villa, Everton and Bournemouth, who have conceded 23, 20, 20 and 17 goals respectively, I would suggest just giving the young lad a bit more time as much as he has just one assist in the last five games. If, by any chance, you are on a wildcard and have £0.8m going free, then perhaps instead take a look at Christian Pulisic for your Chelsea midfield coverage. Having scored 13 points in the first four gameweeks, he then failed to start a game again until that fixture away at Turf Moor where the American certainly came back with a bang. A hat trick and all three bonus points led to 20 points and an influx of purchases, as managers were then rewarded with a further 17 points over the next two matches. That puts him fifth in the midfielder form stakes and those favourable Chelsea fixtures coming up could also prove to be lucrative. Another element of my previous tips article was where I said it wouldn’t be long until Sadio Mane gets to the same price as his teammate Mo Salah. Well, that has now already happened as they each cost £12.2m and it appears the Senegalese’s value is continuing to grow, whilst the Egyptian’s sinks thanks to all the people selling him. Whilst Mane would be my preference out of the two at the moment, enjoying form of 8.2 compared to Salah’s 4.2, it is actually Mo who has a better record against Brighton, having scored thrice and set up two in four against them. Sadio, on the other hand, hasn’t yet got anything in three games against the Seagulls. As for Everton, the Gameweek 15 opposition, it’s one goal in three for the one with the beard and two in six – when playing for Liverpool – for the one with the questionable hair line. Interesting. Just a reminder, too, that they don’t have a fixture in Gameweek 18. Forwards To quote a certain Marshall Mathers, “Guess who’s back? Back again?”. Well, it’s Raul Jimenez, that’s who. Back in terms of getting into fantasy football managers’ good books, anyway. One of the most owned forwards at the start of the season, his popularity then massively waned as he blanked in five of the first seven gameweeks. The following six matches then proved to be highly beneficial for those who kept hold of him or, even more impressively, brought in the Mexican at just the right time. Over that period, he has notched up 44 points thanks to two assists and finding the back of the net four times, with the highlight being the duo of set-ups in the 2-0 victory at the Etihad. Ahead of the game against Sheffiled United, the guy – who scored what happened to be the decisive goal at the Vitality Stadium last weekend – now has eight in eight for club and country. In fact, in the 47 fixtures across all competitions since the start of 2019, he has slotted it away 25 times and set up six others. Back in my Lundstram appraisal, I mentioned Wolves have a good record against the Blades. That’s a team who managed to concede three Man United goals, resultantly moving down to a still very respectable third when it comes to the least goals scored. Another home game is then on the cards, as West Ham make the visit to the Molineux, a side that Jimenez has scored against twice in as many meetings. The next suggestion is another return for one of the favourites of last season, as Harry Kane appears to have hit some form. Sure, he seemed to look to Pochettino as a fatherly figure, however the new Dad, the Special One – sorry, you just knew that was going to be included somewhere – has brought out the best in him from the offset. Having scored one in the 3-2 victory at the London Stadium, the guy who has, so far, been brought in by 81,000 FPL managers this week then contributed a further two in the 4-2 win over Olympiacos. As you have already read, Harry’s teammate Son has a great record against Bournemouth. It turns out that the Spurs number 10 joins the number seven on that front, having scored seven and set up another for good measure in the six times he has faced the Cherries. Gameweek 15 opponents Man United, meanwhile, have a better record against the 26-year-old, as they have only conceded two in 10. Should he blank in that, however, there’s then the potential for more points versus Burnley, on the back of six goals in the last eight meetings. Here we are then, the last suggestion of this article. Well done, hold firm – you’ve already read over 4,000 words. Of course, as a finale, I couldn’t resist mentioning Jamie Vardy and, if you don’t have him already, you really should make it your priority before you lose any more ground to your league rivals. It’s no great shock that he has the best form at the moment with 10, having scored a ridiculous 58 points from the last five games. Broken down, that’s a goal in the 2-1 win against Burnley, a hat trick in that 9-0 thrashing of Southampton and then a further three in following trio of fixtures against Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Brighton. By now you will already be well-versed in the future Leicester games, thanks to my appraisals of Kasper Schmeichel, Caglar Soyuncu and James Maddison and so I’ll just say buy, keep and/or captain. Done. Thanks for reading Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14. This article was written by Swirly. Follow @theswirly FPL FIXTURE TRACKER FIXTURE TRACKER LINK FIXTURE TRACKER 2019/20

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Bean Custard

 Cache   

Sweet and spicy pumpkin pie smothered in smooth, creamy vanilla bean custard has to be the quintessential dessert for thanksgiving.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

After all pumpkin pie is, without a doubt, the number one dessert sought after and requested at Thanksgiving.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

Not being a particularly common dessert here in the UK I must admit that, when I was offered it on the menu the first time I visited America, I was a little too cautious to try. Little did I know I was missing out on one awesome autumn dessert!

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

I may be British but I love he whole concept of Thanksgiving – taking a moment to be thankful for all the good things in life. Just concentrating on them – family, friends, a comfortable life, job and a warm house to live in.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

Enjoying the beauty of the world around - the red and gold leaves as they tumble to the ground - the whole earth falling asleep ready to replenish itself for spring.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

With this in mind, and pumpkins always readily available this time of year, I decided it was time to try a pumpkin pie - and of course serve it with a warm, sweet, vanilla bean custard. It is, after all, the perfect pudding for these chilly November days.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

The custard may not be the same colour as the instant bright yellow shop ones (if you want it more yellow in colour you can add a little turmeric – but not too much – just for colour not flavour!) but it is soooooooooooo rich in deep smooth vanilla flavour.

 

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

 

You can serve it warm or cold and the mix can be made ahead and stored in the fridge ready for heating just when you need it. I do hope that you try it out and enjoy it as much as we did here! :)

Kelleher warns trade deal will lead to Amazon deforestation

 Cache   

Fianna Fáil MEP Billy Kelleher says rainforests in South America shouldn’t be chopped down to produce more beef for Europe.

Earlier this year, the EU agreed a trade deal with the Mercosur countries of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.

However, opposition to the agreement is growing following rainforest destruction in the Amazon.

Billy Kelleher says a different approach is needed

Pope Francis: Even Having Nuclear Weapons Is Immoral

 Cache   

Pope Francis' view on nuclear weapons can be summed up in a few simple words:

Just say no.

The use and possession of weapons should be made "immoral" under official Catholic teaching, Francis told reporters aboard the papal plane Tuesday (Nov. 26), taking a new step in terms of the Vatican's position on this issue.

He also expressed reservation concerning the use of nuclear energy.

"An accident (through the) possession or the folly of some leader could destroy humanity," Francis said. "I have a personal opinion: I wouldn't use nuclear energy until it is totally safe to use it."

Francis made the comments during a news conference on his way back from a weeklong apostolic visit to Thailand and Japan.

The pope answered eight questions from journalists traveling with him on the papal flight. The questions ranged in topic from the financial scandals that have been hitting the Catholic Church in recent months to the death penalty being used in so-called Christian nations.

He also commented on the political unrest in his native South America, which he admitted to be "in flames," and the ongoing protests in Hong Kong against the extradition of its nationals to China.

During his trip to Japan, Pope Francis visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the two cities hit by atomic bombs a few days apart in early August 1945.

"Hiroshima was a true human catechesis on cruelty," Francis said.

Francis also addressed the financial scandals that have been plaguing the Vatican in recent months, for the first time since Vatican police raided the offices of the Vatican Secretariat of State in October.

The pope said Tommaso Di Ruzza, who directed the Vatican's anti-money laundering entity, was arrested Tuesday along with four other Vatican employees, including one clergyman. All are being interrogated by Vatican police.

According to reports by Italian media, the new wave of financial scandals is tied to risky investments by the Vatican Secretariat of State into underperforming prime real estate in London. Some of the funds for those investments came from Peter's Pence, which collects funds from around the world to be used for charitable work. Several middlemen who helped arrange the investment have profited millions for the deal, according to reports by the Financial Times.

Francis said the arrests are a sign the Vatican is making progress in fighting corruption.

"The denunciation did not come from outside the Vatican; it came from the inside," Francis said, spinning the scandals as a victory in the Vatican's ongoing efforts to clean up its financial arm.

The pope said there is nothing wrong in investing Peter's Pence, the money that is collected across the world for the church, in what he called "widow's investments," meaning small and safe ventures.

But things change, he added, if there are signs of corruption.

Francis said that the auditor general at the Vatican informed him that some aspects of the London deal were questionable. Francis said he instructed the auditor to file a report to the Vatican prosecutor, which eventually led to the October raid.

"It is a very bad thing. It is not good that these things happen inside the Vatican, but everything has been clarified by internal mechanisms which are starting to work," he said.

Francis gave credit to his predecessor, Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI, for taking steps to reform the Vatican's finances in the past.

"Pope Benedict was very wise," said Francis. "He started a process that matured and matured."

Francis also criticized the "hypocrisy" displayed by several Christian nations that claim to be in favor of promoting peace while profiting from the global arms trade.

"A country should have the courage to say I cannot speak about weapons because my economy grows a lot thanks to the production of weapons," he said, observing that today "peace is really, really weak."

Francis also referred to the uprisings and demonstrations in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Bolivia as a situation "in flames." He added that the growing unrest in Chile "frightens" him.

The pope said that Venezuela and Bolivia have reached out to the Holy See to mediate the profound divisions that risk tearing the countries apart. He also briefly mentioned the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, asking for peace and dialogue so that problems may be solved.

He also said he would love to visit Beijing.

"I love China!" he said. {eoa}

ΥΠΟΓΡΑΨΕ ΕΔΩ

Είναι το πιο επικίνδυνο φυτοφάρμακο που δεν έχεις ακούσει ποτέ, και συνδέεται με εγκεφαλικές βλάβες στα μωρά και καρκίνο. Παρόλα αυτά ο χλωρπυριφός βρίσκεται παντού στα φρούτα και τα λαχανικά μας. Τώρα η ΕΕ αποφασίζει επιτέλους αν θα το απαγορέψει. Αυτή είναι η ευκαιρία μας να νικήσουμε στην Ευρώπη και στη συνέχεια να πιέσουμε για παγκόσμια απαγόρευση! Πάρε μέρος στην παγκόσμια εκστρατεία για να απαγορευτεί αυτό το αόρατο δηλητήριο απ’ το φαγητό μας:
ΥΠΟΓΡΑΨΕ ΕΔΩ
Αγαπημένες φίλες και φίλοι,

Είναι το πιο επικίνδυνο παρασιτοκτόνο που δεν έχεις ακούσει ποτέ. Συνδέεται με καρκίνο, εγκεφαλικές βλάβες σε βρέφη και διαταραχές του νευρικού συστήματος – και βρίσκεται παντού.

Ο χλωρπυριφός είναι το πιο βρώμικο μυστικό της χημικής βιομηχανίας. Ενώ κάνει θραύση σε πωλήσεις παντού, το έχουν κρατήσει μακριά απ' το φως της δημοσιότητας. Και δεν είναι τυχαίο – αφού προέρχεται από νευροτοξίνες που εφηύραν οι Ναζί! Τώρα βρίσκεται στο φαγητό, στον αέρα και στο νερό που πίνουμε. 

Αυτή τη στιγμή έχουμε μία τέλεια ευκαιρία να το απαγορέψουμε. Η Ευρώπη ετοιμάζεται να το αποσύρει, και κρίσιμες αποφάσεις πλησιάζουν σε μεγάλες αγορές όπως η Βραζιλία και οι ΗΠΑ. Βοήθησε να κερδίσουμε στην Ευρώπη και ύστερα να κινητοποιηθούμε για να πιέσουμε για την απαγόρευσή του σε όλο τον κόσμο!

Υπόγραψε τώρα και διάδωσέ το – όταν το ψήφισμα αποκτήσει δυναμική, θα συνεργαστούμε με θύματα του χλωρπυριφού για να παραδώσουμε τις φωνές μας στους αρμόδιους:

Απαγορέψτε τον χλωρπυριφό!

Οι υποστηρικτές του λένε πως είναι «πολύ αποτελεσματικό παρασιτοκτόνο». Προφανώς και είναι! Αφού ανήκει σε κατηγορία χημικών νευροπαραλυτικών αερίων που σχεδιάστηκαν ως χημικά όπλα! Ίσως είναι απ’ τα πιο τοξικά χημικά που βάλαμε ποτέ στο πιάτο μας.

Η επίδραση που μπορεί να έχει στο ανθρώπινο σώμα είναι καταστρεπτική, προκαλώντας από καρκίνο του πνεύμονα μέχρι Πάρκινσον. Τα παιδιά τα επηρεάζει πολύ άσχημα, βλάπτοντας την ανάπτυξη του εγκεφάλου και χαμηλώνοντας το IQ τους.

Τώρα έχουμε την ευκαιρία να βάλουμε φρένο στη χρήση του χλωρπυριφού. Με την Ευρώπη να κλίνει προς την απαγόρευση, μπορούμε να το πάμε ακόμα παραπέρα, βοηθώντας να δημιουργηθεί ένα κίνημα που θα συνεχίσει τη μάχη σε τεράστιες αγορές σε όλο τον κόσμο – αρχίζοντας απ’ τη Βραζιλία και τις ΗΠΑ όπου αναμένονται σημαντικές αποφάσεις.

Υπόγραψε τώρα και διάδωσέ το παντού – ας βγάλουμε αυτό το δηλητήριο απ' το φαγητό μας και απ' τους οργανισμούς των παιδιών μας το γρηγορότερο:

Απαγορέψτε τον χλωρπυριφό!
Το κίνημά μας έπαιξε κύριο ρόλο στη μάχη εναντίον της γλυφοσάτης. Και όταν ο κολοσσός Monsanto μας πήγε στο δικαστήριο για την εκστρατεία μας, συσπειρωθήκαμε και νικήσαμε! Ο χλωρπυριφός είναι ακόμα χειρότερος – γι’ αυτό ας βάλουμε φρένο στην εξάπλωση αυτού του δηλητηρίου, πριν κάνει περισσότερη ζημιά!

Με ελπίδα και αποφασιστικότητα,
Pascal, Σπύρος, Luis, Antonia, Aloys, Rosa, Melanie, Bert, Ricken και όλη η ομάδα του Avaaz.

a propos: 
Matasuna Records is thrilled to reissue another musical jewel from Peru on vinyl for the first time. The songs were recorded by the band Bossa 70 and released on a 7inch EP and the self-titled album in 1970. Both are much sought-after collector's items and impossible to find. The songs were transferred from the original master tapes and got a new mastering.Nilo Espinoza Vascones or better known under his artist name Nilo Espinosa is without doubt a Peruvian saxophone and flute legend. After a classical musical education he entered the music scene in the early 1960s. In 1966 he founded the band Los Hilton's with some of the best Peruvian musicians including the gifted piano player Otto de Rojas. In 1967 they recorded the first and only LP of the group, which was released in a small edition in Peru.Their concerts were more and more influenced by Jazz and Bossa Nova, so in 1968 they changed the band's name to Bossa 70. In the record label's office Nilo met the Afro-Peruvian Carmen Rosa Basurco, who also loved Bossa Nova and could sing in Portuguese and English. From then on she was the main singer of the band.Bossa 70 recorded four songs for a 7-inch EP in an edition of only 100 copies, which was given away for promotional purposes at concerts and to friends & family. In 1970 they recorded their self-titled LP which reflected a mixture of Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz and Funk. The label pressed only 300 copies, which were sold out very quickly. This LP was the band's only album and is a rare piece of Peruvian music history.Si Voce Pensa on the A-side is a great cover version of the same named song by famous Brazilian musician Roberto Carlos from 1968. Bossa 70 adapted the song for the dancefloor, which is driven by an uplifting rhythm and the expressive voice of the singer. Of course, the great interplay of the other musicians must not go unmentioned. A fantastic track that will heat up everywhere!Birimbao on the flipside is another fantastic Brazilian cover version. The song was written in the 1960s by Baden Powell, one of the most important Brazilian guitarists and one of the pioneers of Bossa Nova. Bossa 70 set their own stamp with a new instrumentation with brass, wah wah guitars, piano, flute parts and trumpet solos. The percussion section is also a brilliant backup for this one. Another winner!

The Takeaway From the Impeachment Hearings: Our Constitution Has Failed

 Cache   

When the House Intelligence Committee began holding hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, some media coverage suggested the proceedings lacked enough “pizzazz … to capture public attention.” It turned out that hearings produced more than their share of bombshells—from EU ambassador and Trump megadonor Gordon Sondland’s admission that there was a “quid pro quo,” to State Department official David Holmes’s testimony about  overhearing a phone call in which Sondland assured Trump that Ukraine would move ahead with the investigations Trump had requested, to former National Security Council official Fiona Hill’s conclusion that Sondland was carrying out a “domestic political errand” for the president that diverged from the U.S. national interest. When the Committee concluded its hearings, the evidence was damning and largely uncontested: Trump appeared to have been part of a scheme to extort a foreign country into sabotaging the US presidential election to his benefit.

Yet, even with the evidence on public display, it remains next to impossible to imagine Republicans taking meaningful action. Even Republicans seen as most likely to break from their party are signaling support for Trump. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), a member of the Intelligence Committee who is retiring from Congress and has at times criticized the president, said that, while the president’s actions had been “inappropriate, misguided foreign policy,” he did not see evidence of an impeachable offense. Hurd’s statement can reasonably be seen as an indication that few (if any) Republicans in Congress will vote to impeach or remove the president from office.

Some observers describe what we are seeing as a crisis. In fact, what we are living through is constitutional failure. The system created by the framers is not doing the job it was designed to do, particularly in the current circumstances: We are faced with a corrupt president who rejects the very idea of legal limits on his power.

Our constitutional democracy is based on free and fair elections, individual rights, independent courts, and the rule of law—the idea that no one is above the law. Trump rejects all of these bedrock principles. He has tried to undermine free and fair elections (most recently demonstrated in the Ukraine scandal.) He threatens his critics with prosecution and lawsuits, disdaining the notion of First Amendment speech and press protections. He seeks to delegitimize judges who rule against his policies. He rejects the idea that ordinary rules and laws apply to him and his allies, declaring (erroneously) that under Article II of the Constitution, “I have the right to do whatever I want as president.”

Trump poses an existential threat to our system of government—and yet he remains in office. In a functioning system, Republicans would have already joined Democrats in taking action to remove Trump from office—just as Republicans stood against Nixon in 1974. In our failed system we are reduced to waiting to see how far Trump will go before congressional Republicans will act—if they ever do.

Every system needs a way to protect itself, and our constitutional system provides (in theory) all the tools needed to deal with the direct threat Trump poses. Congress is fully empowered to remove a corrupt president from office. But congressional Republicans, by refusing to act, render those tools useless. 

James Madison believed that the constitutional system would prevent the accumulation of too much power in any one branch of government. If one branch exceeded the limits of its power, it would be reined in by the others. In order for this to work, Madison famously wrote, “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition.” In other words, if the president engaged in a power grab, members of Congress would use constitutionally available tools to check him or her —not out of moral rectitude but because legislators would be worried about ceding their own power to an ambitious president.

The system is failing because Republicans are placing partisan concerns—their own loyalty to Trump or fear of the political costs of defying him—ahead of their constitutional responsibilities. The system Madison helped design cannot function properly under these circumstances.

It is important to forthrightly describe the reality of constitutional failure for two reasons. 

First, it emphasizes the emergency we face. If he does not face consequences, Trump will feel emboldened to do precisely as he chooses, without regard to ethical or legal limits. We’re seeing this, for instance, with Trump’s moves to undermine the rule of law within the U.S. military by pardoning the Navy SEAL convicted of taking a “selfie” with the corpse of a teenage boy who fought for ISIS.

We can’t count on his removal from office by election as a foolproof safeguard, especially when Trump’s misconduct in the Ukraine scandal was focused squarely on an illicit attempt to tilt the electoral scales in his favor.

Second, describing what has occurred as failure points out that we need a new constitution, one that will be designed to strengthen our democracy against future existential threats. No system is guaranteed to succeed, but a failed one demands replacement. 

Today’s Republican Party is an anti-democratic, authoritarian party that seeks to gain—and has gained—power without winning a majority of votes. To this end, it pushes voter suppression measures and takes advantage of structural defects in our system. Gerrymandered districts can allow the GOP to win a minority of the votes and still control the House. The Electoral College gave Trump the presidency 2016, even though he lost the popular vote—a feat he stands a realistic chance of repeating in 2020. And though deeply unpopular, he enjoys majority support in a Senate that does not reflect political preferences of the majority of Americans, but instead allows a  minority in sparsely populated states to wield power. 

Making the electoral system more majoritarian could force the Republican Party to abandon its anti-democratic approach if it wishes to win. There is no guaranteed way to prevent would-be authoritarians from gaining power. After all, a very popular authoritarian could easily win the popular vote. But clearly, the authoritarianism of our current president is not popular with Americans: Trump’s approval ratings are consistently in the low 40s. Constitutional change would strengthen liberal democracy against an authoritarian party. It is worth trying.

With this goal in mind, a new constitution could address some of the anti-democratic features of our current system, including:

  • ending the Electoral College.

  • reforming or replacing a Senate that gives the 435,000 voting-age people in Wyoming as many votes as the 17,524,000 in Texas.

  • eliminating partisan gerrymandering.

  • protecting the right to vote against voter suppression efforts.

  • dealing with the corrupting influence of our current campaign finance system.

A new constitution could also be aimed at shoring up the rule of law, including by protecting the independence of the Department of Justice and replacing the current impeachment process with something capable of actually holding a lawless president to account. One idea to explore would be expressly giving the DOJ independent prosecutorial authority over the president. Another would be providing a process for triggering new presidential elections—say, based on a three-fifths vote in the House and Senate. 

Obviously, these kinds of changes are not politically plausible at the moment, but they need to be on our agenda—unless we are willing to risk another attack on the system from a future president. We need to begin talking about how to create the conditions needed for a new constitution, one giving us better odds of warding off the next authoritarian threat—assuming we survive the one posed by Trump.

Confira sete dicas para aproveitar as férias com segurança

Confira sete dicas para aproveitar as férias com segurança
Foto: @nurseryart

Os dias de descanso das férias de dezembro estão chegando e criam possibilidades de se aproveitar o período para conhecer novos destinos ou explorar atrações locais. Espera-se uma movimentação maior de pessoas nas cidades, aeroportos e rodovias e, com isso, aumentam também os riscos relacionados à segurança física e cibernética. A Unisys, empresa global de tecnologia, reuniu abaixo alguns cuidados para que você não seja vítima de armadilhas durante a temporada:

1.  Planeje com antecedência e verifique os alertas de autoridades locais.

Após escolher o destino das tão aguardadas férias, inscreva-se em algum alerta de viagem ou de notícias da região ou do evento para receber atualizações sobre o tráfego e informações sobre possíveis contratempos. Se você pretende aproveitar o período para viajar sozinho, certifique-se de que seus amigos ou familiares saibam para onde você está indo, quando você planeja chegar e quando é esperado seu retorno para que todos estejam informados de sua localização.

2.  Compre passagens e ingressos em canais oficiais e desconfie de promoções

A pesquisa Unisys Security Index 2019 aponta que 85% dos brasileiros já foram vítimas de pelo menos um tipo de fraude cibernética no último ano - spam e phishing foram os golpes mais citados (54% e 42%, respectivamente). Essas seguem sendo técnicas muito populares (e efetivas) para os criminosos roubarem dados das vítimas. Por isso, fique atento a e-mails com promoções de passagens, ingressos, brindes ou similares – normalmente são fraudulentos. Além disso, verifique se o website que você está usando para comprar bilhetes mostra o ícone de cadeado seguro (cadeado SSL) no navegador e se o endereço começa com "https: //". E, lembre-se, se os preços parecem bons demais para serem verdade, eles provavelmente não são tão bons assim. Em caso de dúvida, contate o suporte ao usuário da empresa fornecedora.


3.  Fique atento e evite expor-se nas redes sociais

Falsos posts podem levá-lo a websites que visam o roubo de informações ou a distribuição de malware. Assim como no caso dos e-mails, posts com promoções de ingressos, brindes ou similares devem ser objeto de maior desconfiança. Além disso, lembre-se que seu post nas redes sociais pode ser visto por usuários que você não imagina. Por isso, fique atento à visibilidade atribuída a eles ao informar nas redes aonde você irá, o que vai fazer, ou mesmo ao fazer um check-in e tirar uma selfie tagueando local do evento.

4.  Atualize seu celular e evite redes Wi-Fi não seguras

Não atualizar o sistema operacional e aplicativos em smartphones ou no computador pessoal aumenta sua exposição na rede. Falhas de segurança são publicadas com frequência e os criminosos estão sempre atentos em como explorá-las. O Unisys Security Index aponta que cerca de 70% dos brasileiros se preocupam com a segurança dos dados pessoais e de cartão de crédito em seus dispositivos quando usam Wi-Fi público em grandes eventos. Assegure-se de que seus dispositivos estejam atualizados com o software mais recente e use somente redes protegidas por senha. Redes Wi-Fi desprotegidas podem dar aos hackers acesso a dados críticos em seu smartphone.

5.  Utilize VPNs

Durante o tempo off, caso precise acessar os dados da empresa, tais como e-mails ou outros, a partir de redes Wi-Fi locais de aeroportos, hotéis e restaurantes, utilize mecanismos seguros. Uma VPN não o protegerá de todas as ameaças, mas poderá assegurar que seus dados não sejam bisbilhotados enquanto estão transitando pela rede.

6.  Utilize os recursos de segurança do seu smartphone.

Os smartphones dispõem de recursos de segurança, como senha no bloqueio de tela. Use e assegure-se de que seja uma senha forte – há melhores práticas para a criação de senhas numéricas fortes e mesmo para desenhos de padrão de desbloqueio mais robustos. Você pode ainda habilitar recursos de localização para ajudar, em caso de perda (e recurso de apagar todos os dados, para uma situação de roubo do dispositivo).

7.  Viaje tranquilo!

Não é necessário levar tudo o que você possui para uma viagem ou festival. Deixe os objetos de valor em casa e viaje apenas com o essencial - em seus bolsos e malas pequenas, se possível - para que você possa relaxar e se divertir.

9 die in stampede as Brazilian police clash with party crowd

 Cache   

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Police officers pursuing fleeing suspects clashed with people at a street party in a Sao Paulo slum, setting off a stampede in which nine people died, Brazilian officials said Sunday. The state’s security agency said police were carrying out an operation when they were attacked by two men on a […]

Rolling start: Citroen points finger at Ogier, Rally Australia axed, rising star Richard Verschoor and more

 Cache   
Sébastien Ogier
Sébastien Ogier won three rallies in 2019 but lost his world title
Begin your week with the news in brief, as our reporters lift the bonnet on all-things motorsport

In this week's round-up of motorsport news and gossip, Citroën blames Ogier switch for shock World Rally Championship exit, Albon gets nod from Red Bull, an old dog wins new races and Nascar gets more electrifying than usual.

We also name the week's rising star, and highlight some of the greatest machinery ever to enter a motor race. 

Citroën's Ogier blame game

Citroën has sensationally laid the blame for its withdrawal from the World Rally Championship on Sébastien Ogier following his decision to switch to Toyota.

The six-time consecutive champion rejoined Citroën for 2019, but had a tempestuous season as Toyota’s Ott Tänak beat him to the title. The move to axe the programme was expected, but it was thought the PSA Group’s focus on its Formula E attack with DS and forthcoming Peugeot sports car return would be blamed. Instead, the firm said that “without Sébastien Ogier and without any first-class driver available to fight for a world title, Citroën takes the decision to withdraw”. CEO Linda Jackson added: “We obviously have not wished this situation, but could not imagine 2020 without Sébastien.”

Rally Australia cancelled

Rally Australia, which was set to be the final round of this year’s WRC, was cancelled due to bush fires in New South Wales. Instead, drivers, teams and event organisers aided the fire relief effort, organising a charity auction and making substantial donations. The cancellation meant that Hyundai secured its first WRC makes’ title.

Albon gets his reward

A late-race clash with Lewis Hamilton in the Brazilian GP might have cost Alex Albon his first F1 podium, but some good news for the Anglo-Thai driver: he’s been confirmed to stay at Red Bull in 2020. Albon had switched to the team from Toro Rosso mid-season, instantly impressing with his pace.

Life in the old dog

Former British Touring Car Champion Yvan Muller is in contention to win the World Touring Car Cup – at the ripe age of 50. The Frenchman, who already has four World Touring Car titles to his name, won a brace of races at the Macau street track to leave him just 11 points behind Hyundai’s series leader Norbert Michelisz and two adrift of Honda’s Esteban Guerrieri with a round to go. But if he succeeds, Muller won’t be the series’ oldest champ. Last year, Gabriele Tarquini won the title at the age of 56.

Stock cars to go hybrid?

Nascar will feature some level of electrified powertrain in new cars being readied for 2021. The stock car series is known for its rumbling V8s, but series boss Steve Phelps said some electrification was needed to ensure it was “relevant” for Ford, Chevrolet and Toyota. But he added “we’re not going to have a bunch of [full] electric cars going around”, which will be bad news for Jackson Storm fans (look him up…).

Rising star

Richard Verschoor: This 18-year-old Dutchman was only 13th in the FIA Formula 3 Championship this season and was dropped by the brutal Red Bull young driver scheme back in 2017. So why is he on this page? Because he’s just won the Macau F3 Grand Prix, the most prestigious junior single-seater race in the world – and, deliciously, did so by passing and defeating one of Red Bull’s current highly rated prospects, Jüri Vips. Verschoor started fourth and found himself battling for the lead with Vips, before pulling off a tidy late-braking move at the daunting street circuit’s famous Lisboa corner. Anyone who can do that and then win at one of the toughest street tracks in the world, on his first visit, has to be worth a second look – wouldn’t you agree, Red Bull?

Great racing cars

Lotus 49, 1967-1970: Colin Chapman’s masterpiece (well, one of them) brought us the Ford-Cosworth V8 DFV, as a fully stressed member on a monocoque chassis. Added to that, when Jim Clark gave it a winning debut at Zandvoort, the 49s were painted in British Racing Green and had no hint of an aerofoil. By the time the 49Bs bowed out in privateer hands four seasons later, they sported garish liveries representing commercial sponsors and had sprouted rudimentary wings as the penny dropped on downforce. It took a dozen GP wins and carried Graham Hill to the 1968 drivers’ title.

Nejšílenější penalta všech dob! Snaha o slávu skončila totálním fiaskem

Drsnou dohru v podobě hromadné bitky mělo semifinálové utkání brazilské ligy do 20 let mezi Flamengem a Corinthians Paulista v Rio de Janeiru. Domácím fotbalistům vychytal výhru v závěru duelu gólman Hugo Souza, který za nerozhodného stavu lapil soupeřům penaltu a svůj tým poslal do finále. Jeho oslavy se ale vůbec nezamlouvali zdrceným hráčům Corinthians, kteří brankářského hrdinu v přesile napadli a jeden z nich mu dokonce napálil pěstí do obličeje.

===========================================

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner and use keywords (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a program to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!
Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

Presiden Brazil Tuduh Aktor DiCaprio Danai Kebakaran Amazon

 Cache   
Presiden Brazil Jair Bolsonaro, Jumat (29/11) menuding bintang Hollywood Leonardo DiCaprio mendanai kebakaran yang terjadi di hutan hujan Amazon. Namun tuduhan tersebut dilakukan tanpa bukti.  Bolsonaro tampaknya mengomentari unggahan di media sosial yang mengklaim bahwa organisasi lingkungan yang disediakan oleh World Wildlife Fund (WWF) membayar gambar yang diambil oleh petugas pemadam kebakaran sukarela. Namun unggahan tersebut kemudian digunakan untuk meminta sumbangan, termasuk sumbangan AS$ 500 ribu dari DiCaprio. WWF membantah pihaknya telah menerima sumbangan dari DiCaprio atau mendapatkan foto dari petugas pemadam kebakaran. “Leonardo DiCaprio ini adalah pria yang keren, bukan? Memberikan uang untuk membakar Amazon,” kata Bolsonaro pada hari Jumat dalam sambutan singkat di depan kediaman presiden. DiCaprio membantah telah menyumbang ke WWF. Dalam sebuah pernyataan, aktor tersebut memuji orang-orang Brazil yang bekerja untuk menyelamatkan warisan alam dan budaya mereka.  "Meskipun layak mendapat dukungan, kami tidak mendanai organisasi yang ditargetkan," katanya. DiCaprio telah menjadi penyeru yang vokal dalam memerangi perubahan iklim. Ia sering berbicara tentang masalah lingkungan termasuk kebakaran hutan Amazon. Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation miliknya, fokus pada proyek-proyek yang "melindungi satwa liar yang rentan dari kepunahan." Yayasan ini adalah bagian dari Earth Alliance.  Sebelumnya empat anggota organisasi nonpemerintah, Alter do Chão Fire Brigade, ditangkap pada hari Selasa dengan tuduhan pembakaran hutan secara sengaja untuk dokumentasi untuk menggalang lebih banyak sumbangan. Namun mereka dibebaskan pada hari Kamis atas perintah hakim. Politisi dan LSM lainnya dengan keras mengkritik penangkapan tersebut. Mereka mengatakan itu adalah bagian dari upaya bersama pemerintah Bolsonaro untuk melecehkan kelompok-kelompok lingkungan. Para ilmuwan dan aktivis menyalahkan spekulan tanah, petani, dan peternak karena mengatur kebakaran untuk membuka lahan guna pertanian. Mereka mengatakan penggundulan hutan sedang digalakkan oleh Bolsonaro untuk mempromosikan pembangunan dan pertanian di atas pelestarian. Hutan hujan Amazon dianggap sebagai benteng melawan perubahan iklim global. Bolsonaro telah berulang kali mengecam berbagai faksi dalam menyalahkan kebakaran hutan. Dalam unggahan di platform Facebook pada 21 Agustus, dia mengatakan, “Semuanya menunjukkan” bahwa LSM akan pergi ke Amazon untuk “membakar” hutan.  Di waktu lain lain ia mengakui bahwa petani bisa secara ilegal membakar hutan hujan. Namun kira-kira sebulan kemudian ia menyerang "media pembohong" karena mengatakan bahwa hutan hujan sedang dihancurkan oleh kebakaran. Bolsonaro berbicara tentang DiCaprio pada hari Kamis selama siaran web secara langsung. Presiden mengatakan WWF membayar LSM pemadam kebakaran untuk mengambil gambar kebakaran hutan di Amazon. “Jadi apa yang dilakukan LSM? Apa hal termudah? Membakar hutan. Ambil gambar, buat video, ” kata presiden.  "(WWF) melakukan kampanye melawan Brasil, menghubungi Leonardo DiCaprio, ia menyumbangkan AS$ 500 ribu," lanjutnya. “Sebagian dari itu ditujukan kepada orang-orang yang membakar. Leonardo DiCaprio, Anda berkontribusi terhadap kebakaran di Amazon," kata Bolsonaro. [ah]

Political albums from November 2019.
November 28, 2019

Here are the best new albums that relate to this month's political news, including the album of the year. If you read to the end, there's also a bonus. What albums would you suggest? Comment on TwitterFacebook, or email


1. TO THE GRAVE - GLOBAL WARNING

On November 1, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced plans to take action against banks and insurers that were boycotting the coal industry over climate change concerns. Four days later, 11,000 scientists declared a link between human activity and climate change, yet as people began to die in "unprecedented" bushfires sweeping Australia, Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack blasted anyone linking the fires to climate change as "raving inner-city lunatics". In the midst of the madness, Sydney deathcore band To The Grave released their new climate-themed album, which opens with the apt song "Holocaustralia". "In a genre oversaturated with violent lyrics simply for the sake of violence, I found that the most horrific things I could write about were right in front of us all, the things most of us choose not to look at," said singer Dane Evans, whose vocals range from a roar to a Gollum-like rasp over music that's as extreme as Australia's politics. LISTEN>>>    

2. ARCHIE ROACH - TELL ME WHY 

Things got batshit crazier when McCormack's fellow National Party member Barnaby Joyce claimed two people who died in the fires were probably Greens voters, implying they deserved to die because, Joyce claimed, the Greens had stopped the backburning of the bush. It was a complete fabrication, besides the fact that the Greens are strong supporters of Australia's Aboriginal people, who have backburned the bush for millennia. Telling the stories of those people was activist and musician Archie Roach, who released his autobiography along with an accompanying album on November 5. Tell Me Why maps out his life, "from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader". It came as protests swept the country after a white policeman shot an Aboriginal man dead in the Northern Territory, adding to the never-ending tally of Black deaths in custody for which no one has ever been jailed. MORE>>>

3. SOLE & DJ PAIN 1 - NO GOD NOR COUNTRY

Raging against such racism is US rapper Sole, who opens his explosive new album with the song "FTL", which seethes: "Slap on the wrist, that's a white male. Slapped behind bars, that's a black male. Don't need me explaining white supremacy cos so many see it every day. But to my fellow settlers: check yourself, don't forget everything you've got's on the back of someone else. Fuck the law, cos it's racist. Fuck the court it's too expensive. Fuck the jails they don't fix shit. Fuck the cops cos they ain't shit." And on "Extremist" the long-time podcaster and protester spits: "As we speak, millionaires are buying up streams and lakes in New Zealand, building doomsday bunkers. What about the rest of us who can't afford to leave this mess that you made? If resisting this makes me an extremist, then that word is utterly meaningless." Everything about this record, from Sole's sharp raps to DJ Pain 1's blunted beats, is flawless. It's the album of the year for me. LISTEN>>> 

4. MOOR MOTHER - ANALOG FLUIDS OF SONIC BLACK HOLES 

Also raging against racist cops is Afrofuturist Moor Mother with her new experimental electronic album, released on November 8. On "LA92" she speak-raps: “Latasha got shot over orange juice. No cash, got shot. No justice body rock... LAPD on PCP, body bag body bag for you and me.” The lyrics refer to the 1992 murder of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins by Korean-born liquor store owner Soon Ja Du, who had accused her of shoplifting. The event, along with the videotaped police beating of African-American Rodney King two weeks earlier, became the impetus for the Los Angeles race riots. Describing the album, she said: “My whole work is to fight against the erasure of black people, the erasure of poor people, the erasure of black women, the erasure of women... If you have the knowledge of what’s happening in the world, and what has happened in the world to marginalised people, then what will you do with your energy?” LISTEN>>>

5. COLDPLAY - EVERYDAY LIFE 

Even tame, white British pop rockers like Coldplay were raging about racist police brutality this month. The song "Trouble In Town" on their new album, released on November 22, samples racist harassment by police, while Chris Martin sings: "I get no peace, and I just get more police." The band said they wouldn't tour the album until they could find a way to do it without damaging the environment. Meanwhile, as Britain headed for the polls in a race-baiting election, political albums were released by Black British artists who have first-hand experience of racism. The new album by Kele, who once publicly called out Sex Pistol John Lydon for allegedly being racist towards him, was praised as his "most political work yet". The latest LP by London Afrobeat Collective was hailed as "one of the best of 2019's releases". And the new long-player by Michael Kiwanuka was praised by seemingly everybody, even being called "one of the greatest albums of the decade".​​​​​​ MORE>>>    

     

6. VARIOUS ARTISTS - AQUÍ NOS ESTÁN MATANDO - HERE THEY ARE KILLING US

As police cracked down on activists all over the world, from rioters in Hong Kong to anti-coup protesters in Bolivia, Chilean singer Mon Laferte took a stand against lethal repression in her home country. On the red carpet at the Latin Grammy Awards, Mon Laferte opened her jacket to reveal a message written across her bare chest: "En Chile torturan violan y matan", which in English translates to, "in Chile they torture, rape and kill". After her album, Norma, won Best Alternative Music Album, she posted a photo of her red carpet look on Instagram with the caption, "Mi cuerpo libre para una patria libre", which translates to "My free body for a free homeland". A week later, Chilean record label Imperecedero Discos released a 52-track compilation album to help raise money for the victims of repression at the hands of the Chilean state. The album, titled Aquí Nos Están Matando - Here They Are Killing Us, features punk bands from all over the world. LISTEN>>>

7. LIFE AQUATIC - NEON CORTEX 

On the other side of South America, Brazil's most popular politician, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, was freed from jail on November 8 after his detention prevented him from running in last year's Brazilian elections that made Jair Bolsonaro president. Among Lula's many supporters is US academic Noam Chomsky, who is also the subject of the song "Chomsky's Ford Galaxie" found on the debut album by Brazilian experimental hip-hop outfit Life Aquatic. "Life Aquatic is born in ABC Paulista, the urban centre of greater São Paulo, trying to represent the submergence and lack of oxygen of life in a society that makes the simple become complex," they said. "Breathing becomes a difficult task, generating suffocation and discomfort, as when you are alone and submerged in complete mismatch with your system. Our mission? Try to gain breath again so as not to lose another scuba brother to this average life that tries to swallow us every millisecond." LISTEN>>> 

8. RAISED FIST - ANTHEMS 

As the US tried to reassert its power over South America with a coup in Bolivia and continuous pressure on Venezuela, Sweden dropped its rape charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is facing extradition to the US for revealing its state secrets. On November 15, Swedish punks Raised Fist released their new album on the same day that Assange's lawyer called his extradition case "a threat to free speech worldwide". The album's title, Anthems, is no empty boast - the band capture the catchiness, heaviness and rasping vocals of AC/DC and inject that with a heady dose of leftist politics. The release followed a similarly heavy political album from fellow long-time punks, Agnostic Front. Talking about their 12th album Get Loud!, which covers everything from inequality and corruption to political manipulation, the "godfathers of hardcore" said: “We’ve always had a voice; had a lot to say. We’re always screaming for a change." LISTEN>>>

9. DAWN RAY'D - BEHOLD SEDITION PLAINSONG

Also screaming for change are Agnostic Front's fellow punks Subhumans, with their aptly-titled new album, Crisis Point. On "Poison", they yell: "When the earth dries up and the food runs out, all the money in the world won't help you out. Cancer, dementia, poverty prevention, clean up your act avoid extinction." Riffing on the same doom are folk-metallers Dawn Ray'd, with their new album, Behold Sedition Plainsong. On "Soon Will Be The Age Of Lessons Learnt", they warn: "As the ice melts and the ocean swells, all our masters are building is hell. The anticipation, the unsatisfiable hunger, the knowing but not ever knowing. As the last trees are murdered, and the insects are dying in droves, death crawls up the chain." On November 26, the United Nations declared in its annual assessment on greenhouse gases that the world will miss its chance to avert climate disaster without an immediate and all-but-impossible fall in fossil fuel emissions. LISTEN>>> 

10. CATTLE DECAPITATION - DEATH ATLAS 

At the end of the month, Australia's climate politics sank even lower as Energy Minister Angus Taylor faced jail for allegedly doctoring a document to claim that Sydney's Lord Mayor, who supports action against climate change, had spent millions on air travel. Instead of standing him aside, the Prime Minister rang the police. Summing up such dire politics were grindcore band Cattle Decapitation, with their new album, released on November 29. Describing the LP, whose artwork features the Grim Reaper carrying the burnt-out husk of the Earth on his back, vocalist Travis Ryan said: "I want people to be shocked into thinking more about their futures, their loved ones, the pain they're potentially subjecting their future generations to. Everyone just seems to live in the now with no care for tomorrow, and that's incorrect thinking, as far as today goes. Don't make tomorrow a cancelled cheque." MORE>>>

Aesthetische - co3xist3ns3 (Limited Edition) (2CD)

 Cache   
Brazilian electronic duo AESTHETISCHE takes us by surprise with this new “Co3xist3ns3’ release demonstrating to us in 10 tracks that modern electronics and their sharp EBM roots can coexist in full harmony for an uplifting sonic experience. “ExisTense” immediately sets the bar high with a fresh mesh-up of dark industrial and modern electro with female vocal samples evoking ANNE CLARK’s cold atmospheres. With “Barking up the wrong Tree”, AESTHETISCHE do not only signal the next future pop club hit for this Summer featuring nobody else but Sascha Mario Klein from German electro stars NEUROTICFISH, they also once again remind us how they excel at selecting the very right artists for the most successful collaborations… This song offers a pure symbiosis between Sascha’s characteristic vocals and the Brazilians’ lush and dynamic synth arrangements. This song is also featured here as a club mix and as a remake by label mates PSYCHIC FORCE. While “Transcender”, “What Year Is This?” and “Forever Is Now” are all instrumental tracks merging hypnotic trance sequences, catchy techno melodies with an industrial dance edge, “Berlin” is another ear-catcher with a true return to AESTHETISCHE’s original EBM roots evoking early FRONT 242 meets FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY. Another wonderful song also featured in two additional versions including a stunning analog retake by AD:KEY. The limited and physical CD edition of “Co3xist3ns3” includes a bonus second disc offering a selection of 10 more songs which were featured on previous AESTHETISCHE digital-only releases and appear here for the very first time on CD on the pressing demand of the band’s fanbase. A quite club oriented bonus disc revealing the remixing skills of bands like NEURO- TICFISH, DJ SIMON CARTER or yet AESTHETISCHE themselves, but also mindblowing collaborations and featurings with singers in the likes of Mari Kattman, Noemi Aurora (HELALYN FLOWERS), Diana S. (JUNKSISTA) and Xev (DIFFUZION). An uplifting blend of EBM and progressive hypnotic melodies with a darker feel proving that AESTHETISCHE are really at the top of well-crafted melodic upbeat electronic music production.
          

Children Born to Mothers with Rash During Zika Virus Epidemic in Brazil: First 18 Months of Life

 Cache   
Abstract
Objective
To better understand the clinical spectrum and course of congenital Zika syndrome (CZS) during the first 18 months of life of children whose mothers had rash during pregnancy.
Methods
This longitudinal observational study evaluated the clinical progress from birth until 18 months of life of children of mothers who developed rash during or up to 3 months before gestation. Maternal rash occurred from November 2015 to May 2017. The study subjects were divided into three groups: children whose mothers tested positive by RT-qPCR for Zika virus (ZIKV) (Group 1), children whose mothers tested negative by RT-qPCR for ZIKV (Group 2), and children whose mothers did not undergo any testing for ZIKV (Group 3) but tested negative for other congenital infections.
Results
Between April 2016 and July 2018, we studied 108 children: 43 in Group 1, 26 in Group 2 and 39 in Group 3. The majority of children were admitted into the study within 6 months of life. CZS was diagnosed in 26 children, equally distributed in Groups 1 and 3. Of 18 children with microcephaly, 6 were in Group 1 (1 postnatal) and 12 were in Group 3 (5 postnatal). Maternal rash frequency was 10 times higher during the first trimester than in the other trimesters (OR: 10.35; CI 95%: 3.52–30.41). CZS was diagnosed during the follow-up period in 14 (54%) cases. Developmental delays and motor abnormalities occurred in all children and persisted up to 18 months. Epilepsy occurred in 18 (69%) of the cases.
Conclusions
Infants born of mothers exposed to ZIKV during pregnancy showed progression of developmental, motor and neurologic abnormalities even if they were born asymptomatic. Continued postnatal monitoring of such newborns is necessary to preclude disability-associated complications.

          

Factors Associated with the Consumption of Food Markers of Unhealthy Diet Among School Children in Situations of High Health Vulnerability

 Cache   
Abstract
Cross-sectional study that aimed to investigate the factors associated with the consumption of food markers of unhealthy diet among school children with high health vulnerability in public schools of a Brazilian capital. Unhealthy food consumption was investigated through a simplified Food Frequency Questionnaire. Multivariate logistic regression was performed, considering excessive consumption of unhealthy foods as an outcome. A total of 299 students were evaluated, with a mean age of 11.0 ± 2.4 years, 54.8% female and 20.2% overweight. Excessive consumption of unhealthy foods was observed in 46.2% of the sampled population. The chance of excessive consumption of unhealthy foods was greater among school children who skip breakfast (OR = 2.80; 95% CI 1.38–6.48); and those who habitually eat in front of the screen (OR = 2.99; 95% CI 1.11–7.06). These findings can guide interventions to promote healthy habits among school children with high health vulnerability, preventing lifelong excess weight.

          

The Yield Growth Corp. Keeps Growing Like a Weed or a Mushroom -- CFN Media

 Cache   
Seattle, WA - (NewMediaWire) - November 26, 2019 - CFN Media (OTCQB: CNFN), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry announces publication of an article discussing The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF), its new products, and new distribution agreements to add to its already impressive global reach.While some companies are scratching their heads about what to make of the brutal treatment cannabis stocks have felt this year,The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) seems undaunted, expanding its cannabis business while rapidly emerging as a leading public company in the mushroom space. The upstart has assembled a management team rich with branding experience earned at companies like Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Skechers, Best Buy and M·A·C Cosmetics to build new brands employing old world therapeutics for modern-day ailments.Click here to receive an investor deck and corporate updatesA Global Hemp BrandYield Growth owns the cannabis wellness brands Urban Juve, Wright & Well and Jack n Jane. As hemp-based CBD-based beauty products make their way into the mainstream, Urban Juve, has been featured in popular publications globally, including UK Vogue, Vanity Fair UK and Elle Canada. The timing of the media exposure couldn't be better with Urban Juve products spreading across more than 8,000 retail locations in Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Greece and Cyprus.To the point of Greece, a distribution agreement with Melorganics kicked off this month, sending about 2,500 Urban Juve products to the cradle of Western civilization. Melorganics is responsible for distribution in Greece and Cyprus and with the pact freshly amended, Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia have been added to the list.Urban Juve and Melorganics have moved swiftly to now have 11 Urban Juve products registered in the European Union. With the addition of Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia, Melorganics has committed to place the first purchase order for Urban Juve products for these territories by the end of the year.Click here to receive an investor deck and corporate updatesAt this time, Urban Juve is the primary revenue driver for Yield Growth, so these new sales regions will be important to continue the steep growth trajectory the company is on. During the third quarter, revenue was $1.9 million, a big leap from about $400,000 a year earlier.Trendy Mushrooms, Magic and NotMushrooms are being called by some "the new cannabis," evoking memories of where the cannabis space was a decade ago before the so-called pot stock boom. Yield Growth has moved with a purpose in this field lately, establishing Flourish Mushroom Labs as a subsidiary and making acquisitions that stockpiled the new company with over 130 mushroom recipes for a variety of consumer goods, such as teas, soups and coffees.Flourish Labs intends to initially focus on mushroom coffee, with intentions for the first coffee mix product to be launched in the coming months. It's important to recognize that while "magic" mushrooms, those that contain the psychedelic psilocybin, are certainly part of the equation, they are a smaller part of the strategy right now. Many experts have opined that psilocybin has great potential to treat a number of difficult diseases and conditions, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, but being a Schedule I drug at the federal level has severely limited clinical research to validate the anecdotal evidence.Recently, Denver and Oakland decriminalized magic mushrooms and reports are that Santa Cruz and Chicago are strongly considering changing their laws as well, perhaps signaling the start of the shift towards legal magic mushrooms much in the same way cannabis and its derivatives have been steadily legalized. Flourish will explore the psychedelic mushroom opportunity as it goes headlong into the functional mushroom space, as many of the product formulas could simply replace one type of functional mushroom with one containing psilocybin as a therapeutic.Click here to receive an investor ...

In 'Children Of Virtue And Vengeance,' Magic Has Returned. Now What?

 Cache   
detail from the cover of Children of Virtue and Vengeance
Henry Holt and Co.

Children of Blood and Bone was an instant success last year.

The young adult fantasy novel by then-24-year-old author Tomi Adeyemi has so far spent 89 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. It made countless best books lists, and it was optioned for a movie by Disney. It spoke to people.

"I always pitched it as Black Panther with magic," Adeyemi says. "It's this epic young adult fantasy about a girl fighting to bring magic back to her people."

And now there's a sequel: Children of Virtue and Vengeance. The heroine, Zélie, has succeeded in her quest to bring magic back to her people, the maji, and the land of Orïsha. But the nobility and the military now have powerful magic, too. And civil war looms.

For Zélie and her ally Amari — a runaway princess who has joined the rebellion, so to speak — the question becomes: Now what? And how will their personal traumas play out?

"I'm really mean to my characters," Adeyemi says. "And so they have a lot to both deal with personally, and in terms of like: OK, well, who am I? What am I wrestling with? What do I want? Is what I want actually what you want? Are we actually still on the same team in this? It's about kind of how complicated things is — especially with people that you love."


Interview Highlights

On the Nigerian and Yoruban roots of her fictional universe

So the Orisha [deity] that was the inspiration for this world — I didn't know at the time that that was a part of my Nigerian heritage. ... It's a religion. It's a mythology. It started in West Africa and then it was disseminated through the world through the slave trade. And so it sort of looks a little bit different everywhere you see it. So like, for example, you have Santería in Cuba, Candomblé in Brazil. And so it's this rich pot in history, and it resonated with me so strongly. So then to find out that, like, wait, this is a part of me? It was this gift and this ability to build a world based off something that I loved and something that was close to my heart.

On how the blackness of her characters has changed over time

My stories, I call them fantasy memoir fan fiction, in the sense that the common thread has always been like — the first story I ever wrote, I wanted a twin and a horse, and my parents wouldn't give me a twin and a horse, so I'm like: I will give myself a twin and a horse. And I wrote this 30-page story. I was around the age of 6, and the twins were named Tomi and Tomi. And, you know, I was like: OK, cool, now I have everything I wanted.

It kind of kept going with that — just that what I wanted became more magical.But subconsciously, what I wanted also became: Oh, in this, my fantasy, I can be white. Like, oh, I can have magic and I can be white; or I can, you know, shoot lightning out of my hands and I can be biracial. And it was like: It took a lot for me to become the type of person who could even write a story like Children of Blood and Bone.

On the two works of art that inspired Children of Blood and Bone

And really, Children of Blood and Bone too also came from seeing two pieces of of art with black people in [them] — and some of the first two of my life, if not the first ever. And so I'm like: If two photos, two fantastical illustrations of black people, created that 600-page world? ... I always try and quantify representation because it's really hard to explain to someone what not seeing yourself does because it's so internal and it's so deep inside. But it's like: If two pictures equals this book, what do you think this book can mean for people? What do you think this cover can mean for people? I was like: Just a little bit of representation can be monumental. ...

One picture was: I was in a gift shop in Brazil; I was only there because it was raining and I didn't want my hair to get wet. And I see this postcard with the Orisha on it. I didn't know what it was at that time, but I just saw this beautiful, black goddess commanding the sea and this beautiful dark-skinned man breathing fire. And I had never, ever seen, like: Wow, that's myself; like, this is me. This person is even darker than me, and she's doing this beautiful magic. And so that was kind of instantaneous. Like, I saw that, and the world of Orïsha came to me very quickly.

And then about eight months later, I saw this picture on Pinterest. It was a digital illustration of this black girl with luminescent green hair. And I'm like: OK, what if she lived in, like, a space colony? What if she was like a fisherman or a fisherman's daughter of some sort? What if she had to go to the market one day? Oh, what if she's in the market and this girl runs up to ... what if you took this thing and put it in that world you have? Do they fit? Oh, my gosh. They fit so well. And it was two photos of people who look like me when I was, what, 23, I think? Imagine if I had had that when I was 6.

On how the oppressors get magical powers at the same time as the oppressed

The older I get, the more I realized the power of institutions. And institutions are old. They're powerful for a reason. They have been set up a long time ago by very rich and powerful people to disenfranchise you systematically.

And so I think sometimes it's like we focus on — we can look at our political history. We focused on [electing] Obama because that's a goal — that's a battle we can try and fight, like let's try and get this person in the White House. Oh, my gosh, he's in the White House. Magic is back. It's great.

But suddenly police brutality is — I won't, I don't know if it's necessarily on the rise, and this is NPR, so I really don't want to say anything or something that might not be a true fact — but at least it became popularized, in the sense that we realized that was going on. It started with Trayvon Martin and it kind of just snowballed. That was during the Obama presidency. ...

It's like: Yes, you can focus on getting magic, but then you'll see that magic wasn't completely the problem. The entire system is against you. So what are you going to do?

The Amazon rainforest, which is the largest ecosystem of its kind on Earth and is shared by eight South American countries as well as an EU outermost region, was ravaged by fires coinciding with last summer’s dry season. However, most of these fires are set intentionally and are linked to increased human activities in the area, such as the expansion of agriculture and cattle farming, illegal logging, mining and fuel extraction. Although a recurrent phenomenon that has been going on for decades, some governments' recent policies appear to have contributed to the increase in the surface area burnt in 2019, in particular in Brazil and Bolivia. Worldwide media coverage of the fires, and international and domestic protests against these policies have nevertheless finally led to some initiatives to seriously tackle the fires, both at national and international level – such as the Leticia Pact for Amazonia. Finding a viable long-term solution to end deforestation and achieve sustainable development in the region, requires that the underlying causes are addressed and further action is taken at both national and international levels. The EU is making, and can increase, its contribution by cooperating with the affected countries and by leveraging the future EU-Mercosur Association Agreement to help systematic law enforcement action against deforestation. In addition, as the environmental commitments made at the 2015 Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris will have to be renewed in 2020, COP25 in December 2019 could help reach new commitments on forests.

Coutinhovi ještě dávám čas na usazení v Bayernu, svěřil se dočasný kouč Flick. Podle něj má Brazilec stále prostor ke zlepšení Stačily mu na to pouhé čtyři měsíce a mezi fanoušky mnichovského giganta si už získal četnou skupinu příznivců. Momentální trenér obhájců bundesligového titulu Hansi Flick ovšem tvrdí, že Coutinhův herní projev se po kompletní aklimatizaci na německé prostředí ještě vyšperkuje.

How indigenous Bolivians lost faith in Evo Morales after the Amazon blaze

 Cache   
Story 352511548

Evo Morales, who resigned as president of Bolivia and sought asylum in Mexico amid political turmoil earlier this month, repeatedly proclaimed himself a guardian of “Pachamama,” also known as Mother Earth. But to some indigenous Bolivians, his relationship with the planet is a complicated one.

Indigenous people form a majority in Bolivia. The two biggest groups, Aymara and Quechua, have roots in the Andean highlands, while the remaining 34 are from the lowlands, an area that includes the Amazon rainforest. As Bolivia’s first indigenous leader — his family is Aymara — Morales vowed to fight for Bolivia’s indigenous communities by amplifying their voices and advocating for their cultural values, including the value of protecting land and nature.

María José Bejarano De Oliveira, an 18-year-old member of the Chiquitano nation in the eastern lowlands, was one of many indigenous Bolivians who bought Morales’ promises. “Since we were tired of the traditional politicians who governed our country with false promises of substantial changes in social, economic, and cultural aspects that were not kept, the choice was made to believe in the supposed Aymara indigenous leader,” De Oliveira told Grist in Spanish in an email.

But when it came to the environment —and especially the Amazon — Morales’ actions were at odds with his rhetoric. When raging fires blanketed vast swaths of the Amazon a couple of months ago, much of the world focused on Brazil and its far-right leader, Jair Bolsonaro. But in Bolivia, more than 4.2 million acres of land were up in flames. To many frustrated environmentalists and Bolivians, there was only one person to blame: Evo Morales.

Morales, a former coca farmer and llama herder, did have many environmental wins during his presidency. In 2010, he hosted a climate change conference in the city of Cochabamba and passed Bolivia’s Law of Mother Earth, the first law in the world to recognize nature’s rights as equal to human rights. He also sponsored a successful U.N. resolution to recognize access to clean water and sanitation as human rights. He even brought forth an ambitious climate pledge for the Paris Agreement.

“In the first stage of his administration, we thought that he would fulfill his campaign promises to defend the indigenous people of Bolivia and Mother Earth,” said De Oliveira. “But it’s clear that in terms of real-life actions, he didn’t fulfill them.”

Morales’ image as a defender of Pachamama took a turn in the months before his ouster. In July, a month before the fires began, Morales signed legislation that weakened restrictions on land-clearing fires in the Bolivian Amazon. The law encouraged slashing and burning to create arable land for cattle ranching and soy farming. He even sent “migrant farmers” from his own tribe to occupy the eastern lowlands.

The move might seem surprising, given his rhetoric on protecting the environment. But Morales had his eye on agribusiness as a means to boost the country’s economy. His government aimed to make Bolivia a global food supplier so that agricultural commodities could join petroleum gas as a key Bolivian export.

In just a few weeks, farmers and ranchers — through the practice of “controlled burning” — burned nearly 2 million acres of forest in protected reserves. When Bolivia’s dry season arrived in August, the flames got less controlled. Burning and drought are something of a vicious cycle in Bolivia: increased burning restricts the climate’s ability to recycle precipitation, which in turn leads to severe droughts and a heightened risk of disastrous wildfires.

In early September, protestors took to the streets of Bolivia demanding that Morales declare a national disaster. Some chants even went as far as calling him a “murderer of nature” for not taking immediate action on the fires. Most of the protestors came from indigenous groups living in and near the Amazon. According to one source, who didn’t want to be named for fear of retaliation for himself and his organization, many of the protestors “felt betrayed” by their country’s first indigenous leader.

Then, in September, when the Amazon was still ablaze, Morales gave a speech at the United Nations General Assembly in front of world leaders, delegates, and the press, expressing his love for Pachamama. “Our house, Mother Earth is our only home, and it is irreplaceable,” he said. “Increasingly, it is suffering from more fires, more floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, droughts, and other disasters.”

Many Bolivians saw hypocrisy. “In practice, his speeches were false and his actions spoke the opposite of his speeches,” said De Oliveira, who was also at the U.N. as a delegate representing the Confederation of Indigenous Peoples of Bolivia.

Soon after the blazes in the Amazon came Bolivia’s contested presidential election, in which Morales declared victory after an unexplained pause in vote-counting. Protests broke out, and Brazil, the United States, and the European Union urged Bolivia to hold a run-off election, which Morales agreed to. But then the Bolivian military pushed Morales to resign due to political unrest.

Now that he’s been ousted, indigenous Bolivians find themselves in a different kind of trouble. Jeanine Añez, the right-wing politician who has named herself interim president, has a history of discriminatory statements about indigenous Bolivians. In a 2013 tweet, which has since been deleted, the then-senator said in Spanish, “I dream of a Bolivia free of satanic indigenous rites. The city is not for the Indians who should stay in the highlands or the Chaco!!!”

Since installing herself as president, Añez has accused Morales of “terrorism” and allowed the nation’s military to open fire at pro-Morales protesters for any cause, leading to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries.

It’s unknown whether the interim administration will fulfill Morales’ climate commitments and environmental policies. Morales always made sure Bolivia was represented at international climate conferences. Bolivia is currently planning to send a delegation to Madrid for the 2019 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as COP25, in early December. But much is in flux in Bolivia at the moment after Añez signed a bill annulling the earlier vote and allowing for new elections.

All De Oliveira and other indigenous activists know is that they will continue fighting for their rights and for the environment, which they see as intertwined. “We demand that this new transitional government sign commitments” to domestic and international environmental agreements, said De Oliveira. “A solution to the … violations and assaults of our lands should be based on the values and customs of the indigenous people.”

Paris Agreement targets need to be 5 times stronger to actually work

 Cache   
Story 352403074

In almost exactly a year’s time, nearly 200 countries will have the chance to go back to the drawing board and make revisions to their Paris Agreement commitments. It sounds boring, but those voluntary commitments are pretty much the only global tool humanity currently has at its disposal to fight the looming climate crisis. What these countries decide to do when they get together in Glasgow next November to update their commitments will quite literally determine whether the planet devolves into a climate-wrecked hellscape or starts tracking a far more livable course.

A new U.N. report published on Tuesday, a week before many of those nations gather in Madrid for an annual climate change conference, shows exactly what the world needs to do to avoid catastrophic warming. Spoiler alert: it will not be easy.

The report says that nations need to make their emissions-reductions goals five times more ambitious in order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees C — the threshold scientists say is the danger line for global warming. Even if all of the countries involved in the Paris Agreement bring emissions down to the levels they initially pledged to meet, the world would still be on track for 3.2 degrees C of warming. That’s 5.76 degrees F, a scenario that would make the wildfires, hurricanes, heat waves, and droughts of 2019 look like child’s play.

The worse news is that many of the world’s biggest emitters aren’t even on track to meet their Paris accord pledges. Members of the G20, which includes 19 countries and the EU, produce 78 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Of those countries, only China, the EU, India, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey are on track to meet their nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement. Meanwhile, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Canada, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and the United States of America — which is in the process of pulling out of the agreement — need to take stronger action to achieve the targets that they voluntarily set in 2016. (There’s conflicting data on whether the remaining G20 members are on or off track.)

All these countries need to revise their targets significantly in 2020 and then start actually meeting their targets to “close the emissions gap” and avoid a terrible warming scenario. Inger Andersen, the executive editor of the U.N. Environment Programme and the lead author of the report, gives humanity two options: “set in motion the radical transformations we need now, or face the consequences of a planet radically altered by climate change.” Those radical transformations she’s talking about involve cutting emissions 7.6 percent every year between 2020 and 2030 if we want to limit warming to 1.5 degrees, or 2.7 percent per year if we’re willing to resign ourselves to 2 degrees of warming.

It would be the understatement of the century to call these objectives daunting. Luckily, the report lays out exactly what each country in the G7 can do to help achieve those cuts. The United States, for one, can put a price on carbon, shore up fuel efficiency standards for new cars, and implement clean building standards so developers build more efficient buildings. It can also regulate its power plants better and work toward a carbon-free electricity sector. China and India can ban coal-fired power plants, invest in public transit, and work toward zero-emissions cars and buildings. The E.U. can stop investing in fossil fuel-powered infrastructure, cut the natural gas cord, phase out its coal-powered plants, ban combustion-engine vehicles, and retrofit existing buildings to make them cleaner.

Here’s the good news: several G20 members have said they aim to achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century. In the U.S., many presidential candidates are running on platforms that include that ambitious goal. Furthermore, the technology to accomplish the recommendations laid out in the report already exists. What nations need now is the political willpower to make it happen. “We have to learn from our procrastination,” Andersen writes. “We cannot afford to fail.”

My participation in LaKademy 2019

 Cache   
LaKademy 2019 Group Photo

Hi, people! Here I am again telling about how I love this community and like to be part of every activity we organize. Almost two weeks ago we had a new edition of LaKademy, the Latin American KDE Summit, which we’ve been organizing in Brazil since 2012. This edition was held in Salvador, Bahia, for the second time (the 2015 edition was there too).

During the four days we worked there, I dedicate my time to improve LaKademy website. I’ve created a page for this event in 2017 but it needed some adjustments, like a more modern and responsive template. Since some projects in KDE community are adopting a unified template that uses Jekyll, I’ve decided to change LaKademy website to this template too. So I spent my time there first trying to make Jekyll run on my computer (we had some issues with the network from the University the event happened, so it took me almost a day to figure out why some things on my computer were not working 🙂 ) and then trying to learn how Jekyll works 😀

This is how the website looks right now:

It is just a static webpage made in HTML/CSS with some information about each edition. We think this page as just a repository to show information about every edition. For news and updates we always use KDE Brasil webpage or KDE.news.

And this is how the new webpage is looking right now. I am still working on it and it still has a lot of work to do to finish it. But now I will have to do this during my free time, since I couldn’t finish it during the event.

This was once again a very nice event to work with things and people that I like, in a city that I love. We had some new contributors attending to it and we could think of some strategies to make this community stronger during our traditional promo meeting. We’ve created a KDE Brazil Promo group at Telegram to coordinate our promo activities here in Brazil and we hope we can get better at it and reach as much people possible 😀

I would like to thank KDE e.V. to support this event every year and Caio and Icaro for having organized it in Salvador. I’m looking forward to attend to LaKademy 2020! 🙂

We don’t need no observation: The use and regulation of facial recognition in Brazilian public schools

Introduction

The use of facial recognition technology in schools around the world in countries such as China and the United States has encouraged the similar use of this technology by other countries, including Brazil. However, it has also raised questions and concerns about the privacy of students. Because of this, analyses of the nature and consequences of the use of facial recognition technology in diverse scenarios are necessary.

This report presents a brief reflection on the use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools, including in the state of Pernambuco, where IP.rec is based, and considers their implications for citizens' rights to privacy, as well as the possibility of the technology being regulated by existing laws.

Background

Artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, the “internet of things”, smart cities, facial recognition, biometrics, profiling, big data. When one tries to imagine the future of big cities, it is impossible not to think about these terms. But is the desire to make cities “smarter” jeopardising the privacy of Brazilian citizens? Does this desire turn people into mere guinea pigs for experimentation with new technologies in a laboratory of continental proportions?

The use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools has already been implemented in several cities such as Jaboatão dos Guararapes (in the state of Pernambuco), Cabo de Santo Agostinho (Pernambuco), Arapiraca (Alagoas), Cravinhos (São Paulo), Tarumã (São Paulo), Potia (São Paulo), Paranavaí (Paraná), Guaíra (Paraná), Viana (Espírito Santo), Anápolis (Goiás), Senador Canedo (Goiás) and Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade (Mato Grosso).[1] Among the features provided by the so-called Ponto iD[2] system is the monitoring of the attendance of students at school without the need to take roll call. The system also aims to help optimise class time, as the time spent on the roll call is saved; help manage school meals, as cooks are notified of the exact number of students in class as soon as the gates close; and decrease the school drop-out rate, as guardians receive, through an app, notifications that their child is in the school. The last is noted as a primary social consequence of using the technology. To implement the system, the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, for example, has spent BRL 3,000 (USD 780) per month per school.

The technology provider's webpage states that the solution is designed in an integrated way, linking government departments. Because of this, a diverse range of public institutions can share information with each other. For example, according to the government of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, if a student is absent for more than five days, the Guardianship Council is notified as the system also shares students’ information with that body.[3]

In 2015, the service provider also stated that the system would be connected to the Bolsa Família programme,[4] which is a direct income transfer programme aimed at families living in poverty and extreme poverty throughout the country, and intended to help them out of their vulnerable situation. In Brazil, more than 13.9 million families are served by Bolsa Família.[5] The receipt of the benefits is conditioned, among other duties of a student whose family is a beneficiary of the programme, to a minimum school attendance of 85% for children and adolescents from six to 15 years old and 75% for adolescents 16 and 17 years old.[6]

Privacy? Absent. Risks? Present

As previously observed by several scholars, digital technologies not only make behaviour easier to monitor, but also make behaviour more traceable.[7] Given this potential, a number of critical issues in relation to the application of facial recognition systems in educational contexts were identified.

According to the service provider, the system works off a platform that uses cloud computing capabilities, but it was not possible to identify any information regarding the level of security related to the storage of collected data in the company’s privacy policy available on its official website. Despite this, among the said benefits offered by the technology implemented are not only the monitoring of students’ attendance and their school performance, but the possibility of monitoring students’ personal health data.

The mayor of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes[8] states that in addition to facial recognition, the software also offers, through the collection of other information, the possibility of better planning the number of daily school meals. As soon as the school’s gates are closed, the cooks receive via SMS[9] the exact number of students who are in the classrooms. Meanwhile, according to the secretary of education of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, Ivaneide Dantas, at some point even the health problems of students will be identified and parents informed using the system.

However, the lack of information that is included in the company’s privacy policy,[10] or on city halls’ websites, constitutes a critical point in the relationship between students and the education system. The problem becomes all the more obvious since the solution involves sensitive data – biometric data – of minors.

The text of the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD),[11] recently approved unanimously in congress after almost 10 years of discussions and two years of proceedings, has undergone major changes due to the vetoes of former president Michel Temer at the time of its sanction and more recently by President Jair Bolsonaro. The changes to the text of the LGPD through Provisional Measure 869/2018[12] have resulted in the impairment of the effectiveness of the law as well as a series of setbacks. These setbacks have ignored issues considered already decided on in discussions that had popular participation, as well as the input of members of the executive and legislative branches. As argued in a report released by the joint committee set up to investigate the possible impacts caused by the Provisional Measure,[13] the revised act put at risk the effectiveness of the guarantees reached by the previous text.

The public sector, especially the police authorities, are using new technologies to monitor the population without the social consequences being considered or even measured. The adoption of facial recognition systems for public security purposes is already a reality in several Brazilian cities. Recently, the increase in the use of the tool in public and private spheres has led to the establishment of Civil Public Inquiry No. 08190.052289/18-94[14] by the Personal Data Protection Commission of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the Federal District and Territories (MPDFT), as well as a public hearing held on 16 April 2019.[15] The hearing sought not only to promote debates about the use of facial recognition tools by businesses and the government, but also to function as an open space for the participation of NGOs and civil society.

It is important to remember that as systems are being implemented in public schools around the country, much of the peripheral and vulnerable population is being registered in this "experiment" – that is, data is being collected on vulnerable and marginalised groups. As researchers have pointed out, biases are being increasingly incorporated into the variety of new technological tools.[16] These digital tools can act more quickly, on a larger scale, and with actions that can be hidden by a greater complexity, such as, for example, through profiling systems that use biased machine learning algorithms that police, profile and punish minorities. The struggle is still against the perpetuation of the same problem: the deprivation of civil rights of certain groups of society as a result of social inequalities and power relations in society.

It is not uncommon for technology to be used in a way in Brazil that suggests the possibility of a future Orwellian dystopia. The use of facial recognition technology during the Carnival of 2019 in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, resulting in a number of arrests, drew the attention of Brazilians.[17] The apparent relativism of fundamental rights and the relaxation of laws that limit surveillance due to the magnitude of events,[18] and the lack of official information on the effectiveness of the new automated measures, as well as on the storage and sharing of biometric data, were just some of the various problems identified.

The need to manage large events with thousands of participants is not the only reason why surveillance technologies are used in Brazilian urban centres. As Marcelo Souza from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) explains,[19] the increase in punitive policies and the militarisation of the police are the main reasons behind the increasing use of dystopian and invasive AI devices and technologies, typical of combat zones.[20] Even after a series of changes that have taken place in Brazil since the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution, public security institutions have not been significantly modified. The culture of war against the "internal enemy", for example, remains as present as in the days of the military dictatorship.[21]

Given that the recently approved LGPD does not apply to data processing for public security purposes, it would be possible for authorities to argue that the biometric database from the facial recognition system in schools can be used to identify suspects and improve public security. This would place its use even further outside the remit of current legislation. As the LGPD states, data processing for public security purposes "shall be governed by specific legislation, which shall provide for proportionate and strictly necessary measures to serve the public interest" (Article 4, III, § 1, LGPD).[22]

However, a specific law does not exist so far. According to the Brazilian lawyer and privacy advocate Rafael Zanatta,[23] the civic battle in Brazil will be around the shared definition of "proportional measures" and "public interest”. The solution proposed by some researchers and activists for the time being is the protection offered by the constitution, such as the presumption of innocence, and the general principles of the LGPD itself, which guard against the improper use of collected data. On the other hand, it is believed that a tremendous effort will be needed to consolidate jurisprudence where these principles are applied in cases of state surveillance.

There is also a lack of easy access to public documents and information on the use of surveillance technologies. Often information related to the operation of these technologies depends on ad hoc statements made by public agents or private companies, whistleblowers or, when granted, requests for access to public information made possible by the Access to Information Law (LAI).

The discussion on the regulation of AI systems in Brazil is still very new. According to Brazilian researchers Bruno Bioni and Mariana Rielli,[24] the general debate on data protection around the globe has different degrees of maturity depending on the region and the specific issues faced. In addition, a paradigm shift has been observed through the transition from a focus on the individual's right to self-determination with regards to his or her private information to a model of risk prevention and management with respect to data-processing activities.

However, the use of AI for the collection and processing of sensitive personal data, such as the biometric data in question, makes these risks difficult to measure. In part this is because the general population does not have sufficient knowledge of the technology to recognise the extent of its impact on their personal lives.

In this way, an imbalance of power with regard to public awareness and the use of the technology has been created in Brazil.

The need for impact reports on the protection of personal data is an important requirement that has been gaining prominence in legislation, such as European legislation and the recently approved LGPD. However, Bioni and Rielli draw attention to the few requirements placed on developers of AI technologies in Brazil, as well as on the consumer who buys and implements the technology. In particular, there is no law in relation to the purchase and use of facial recognition devices for public service and public safety purposes in Brazil, unlike similar public projects elsewhere that seek an informed public debate and the inclusion of citizens' interests in decision-making processes (e.g. the ordinance on the acquisition of surveillance technology recently adopted in San Francisco, in the United States).[25]

Conclusion

A decrease in school drop-out rates: this is the main advantage of facial recognition technology in schools, according to the company that has developed the technology. But are we assigning to technology something that would be the responsibility of society and the state?

As the Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire[26] showed, many of the most common practices in the Brazilian educational system are dictated by the Brazilian elite. This includes the use of educational content that does not correspond to the reality of students from lower classes, but instead inhibits their ability to think critically of their reality, and in the end discourages them from attending school.

Easy and safe access to school is also an important consideration impacting on the student's educational performance. The Brazilian Statute of the Child and Adolescent, in chapter IV, art. 53, inc. V,[27] states that one of the rights of the child and adolescent is access to public and free schools near his or her home. However, when distance is not an impediment to school attendance, issues related to the safety of the student's route to school should also be considered. For example, in some communities in Rio de Janeiro,[28] there are frequent incidents of armed confrontation between police and drug traffickers, visible abuses of power by the authorities, stray bullets and other incidents endangering the lives of passers-by, and even street executions, all of which are daily threats to residents. In addition, the reality faced by marginalised populations in Brazil raises another important question: the need for children and adolescents from low-income families to leave school in order to work and help support the household.

The problem of the school drop-out rate in Brazil is neither a new issue nor something that can be solved only with the implementation of a new school attendance system using AI. It is necessary for society to seek more meaningful ways to mitigate the present crisis facing the educational system.

In addition to projects that raise public awareness about issues related to new technologies in Brazilian urban centres, there is also a need to strengthen legislation that governs how sensitive data is shared and used in public projects in order to maintain the quality of public services. When the fundamental rights and guarantees of citizens are understood and respected, a relationship of trust is established.

Cities in Brazil should strengthen privacy protection instruments and create legal certainty through the establishment of fundamental principles, rights and duties for the operation of an ever-changing array of technologies in society. Regulating the use of personal data in the public sphere has the power to promote the conscious, transparent and legitimate use of this information.

Action steps

The following advocacy priorities are suggested for Brazil:

  • Formulate regional policies and strategies for the use of AI in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Develop legally enforceable safeguards, including robust transparency and accountability measures, before any facial recognition technology is deployed.
  • Promote national campaigns and public debate over surveillance technology given the impact such technologies may have on civil rights and civil liberties.
  • Include a social, cultural and political understanding of the needs of vulnerable groups in the country's education strategies to make the learning environment more attractive for these groups.
  • Develop open source AI systems that enable wider community use, with appropriate privacy protections.

Leonardo DiCaprio Denies Brazilian President’s Accusation That He Financed Amazon Fires

 Cache   

Leonardo DiCaprio has denied an unfounded accusation from Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, that he had funded the fires consuming the Amazon rainforest.

In a statement posted on his Instagram account on Saturday morning, DiCaprio wrote, “The future of these irreplaceable ecosystems is at stake and I am proud to stand with the groups protecting them. While worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted.”

DiCaprio’s statement can be seen in full at the bottom.

On Friday, Bolsonaro appeared to be commenting on social media posts saying that the World Wildlife Fund had been paying volunteer firefighters for images that the organization would then use to solicit donations, Reuters reported. According to some of these postings, DiCaprio was one such donor who made a $500,000 contribution.

The Brazilian president had also criticized the actor and other non-profit organizations who were fighting to save the rainforest during a live webcast on Thursday, a few days after four members of a nongovernmental fire brigade were arrested and accused of purposefully setting fires in order to solicit donations. (The members were released on a judge’s order on Thursday, Reuters reported.)

“[WWF] makes a campaign against Brazil, it contacts Leonardo DiCaprio, he donates $500,000,” he said. “A part of that went to the people that were setting fires. Leonardo DiCaprio, you are contributing to the fire in the Amazon; that won’t do.”

Bolsonaro brought up DiCaprio’s name yet again briefly on Friday, saying, according to Reuters, “This Leonardo DiCaprio is a cool guy, right? Giving money to torch the Amazon.”

The WWF has denied paying for photos from the firefighters or receiving a donation from DiCaprio. “WWF Brazil rejects the attacks on its partners and the lies involving its name, including a series of lie-based social media attacks such as the purchase of photographs linked to a donation from the actor Leonardo DiCaprio,” WWF said in a statement, via English translation.

Other environmental conservation group leaders also issued statements on Saturday in support of DiCaprio and the NGOs working to conserve the rainforest.

“In the past few days, false accusations have been made to undermine environmental defenders and distract the general public from policies that directly lead to environmental like those across the Amazon earlier this year,” Wes Sechrest, the CEO and chief scientist for Global Wildlife Conservation, said in a statement. “We stand by those falsely accused of starting forest fires in the Amazon, and reaffirm our support to those who are dedicated to protecting one of our planet’s most vital and imperiled ecosystems.”

Jon Paul Rodriguez, the chair of IUCN Species Survival Commission, said the group was “concerned that there are increasing and targeted attacks on people and groups working to protect nature in the Amazon.”

“Environmental defenders, whether in local communities, NGOs, or government agencies, should be afforded with the highest protection of the law in Brazil,” Rodriguez said in a statement.

100 Years of Bauhaus on Google Arts & Culture

 Cache   

Even if you’ve never heard of the Bauhaus movement, you’ve probably seen its influence all around you. From traffic signs to office furniture, the legendary design school changed the way our world looks and functions.  

One hundred years after the movement began in Germany, we’re still surrounded by Bauhaus ideas about art, technology and craftsmanship, which are reflected in Google Arts & Culture's newest collection—"Bauhaus Everywhere". The collection came together in partnership with the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation in Germany—as part of our multi-year digitization collaboration—and six other partners including the IIT Institute of Design or the Guggenheim Museum.

Bauhaus design aimed to improve people's lives through functional design. Well-known members of the school, such as its founder Walter Gropius, the controversial Hannes Meyer or Gunta Stölzl, as one of many female designers and artists, have a lasting influence on architecture, furniture design and even typefaces

This project digitizes over 10,000 objects, offers virtual tours of iconic buildings and exhibits over 400 artworks captured with our Art Camera. The result is over 45 online exhibitions curated by our seven partners featuring icons like the world known tubular steel armchair or imagery of “Africa's Finest Campus” and the (perhaps unexpectedly) best selling bauhaus design, wallpaper

There are also unique insights into the everyday student life of Bauhaus including the renowned Bauhaus parties and the forward thinking empowerment of women. And, because the school’s design principles spread far beyond Germany and Europe, we’ve created a Google Earth Voyager Tour to show how people as far away as Japan, India or Brazil were inspired by Bauhaus. 

New shapes, materials and approaches to construction made Bauhaus proposals stand out. Its architectural designs  were especially known for their avantgarde approach. But many of these bold building plans stayed just that, and were never actually constructed. In collaboration with experts from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, the collection contains buildings that had only ever existed on paper and in the minds of their creators. 

Together we assembled archival sketches, scribbles and vague descriptions to create augmented reality models of three visionary structures. In the Google Arts & Culture app anyone can now explore “Round House” by Carl Fieger, “BAMBOS” by Marcel Breuer and “Court House” by Eduard Ludwig from inside and outside. 

László Moholy-Nagy, a teacher at the Bauhaus, put it this way: "Design is not a profession, design is an attitude." We hope you’ll see that the Bauhaus attitude is not just everywhere but, through this exhibit, also for everyone.

Comment on Is US Oil Production Growth Slowing??? by Ovi

 Cache   
Just watched the video. Clearly those of us on this site are well plugged in and well (Pun intended) informed. I found it interesting that he was comparing production from Dec to August as an indicator of slowing US production. Similar to what was done above, instead to September. I agree with him that the next six months will give a clearer view of the potential for shale production to provide increasing US production over the next two years. I am surprised that he did not mention Guyana. While Brazil and Norway are starting to ramp now, Guyana starts up early in 2020 with the potential of reaching 120 kb/d. Other sites could add 440 kb/d by 2023. Keep in mind that decline never sleeps. Brazil added 225 kb/d in August. Norway will not show up adding an increase until October.

Cross-species immune recognition between Plasmodium vivax Duffy binding protein antibodies and the Plasmodium falciparum surface antigen VAR2CSA

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Background: In pregnancy, Plasmodium falciparum parasites express the surface antigen VAR2CSA, which mediates adherence of red blood cells to chondroitin sulfate A (CSA) in the placenta. VAR2CSA antibodies are generally acquired during infection in pregnancy and are associated with protection from placental malaria. We observed previously that men and children in Colombia also had antibodies to VAR2CSA, but the origin of these antibodies was unknown. Here, we tested whether infection with Plasmodium vivax is an alternative mechanism of acquisition of VAR2CSA antibodies. Methods: We analyzed sera from nonpregnant Colombians and Brazilians exposed to P. vivax and monoclonal antibodies raised against P. vivax Duffy binding protein (PvDBP). Cross-reactivity to VAR2CSA was characterized by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, immunofluorescence assay, and flow cytometry, and antibodies were tested for inhibition of parasite binding to CSA. Results: Over 50% of individuals had antibodies that recognized VAR2CSA. Affinity-purified PvDBP human antibodies and a PvDBP monoclonal antibody recognized VAR2CSA, showing that PvDBP can give rise to cross-reactive antibodies. Importantly, the monoclonal antibody inhibited parasite binding to CSA, which is the primary in vitro correlate of protection from placental malaria. Conclusions: These data suggest that PvDBP induces antibodies that functionally recognize VAR2CSA, revealing a novel mechanism of cross-species immune recognition to falciparum malaria.

Comparative genomics for non-O1/O139 Vibrio cholerae isolates recovered from the Yangtze River Estuary versus V. cholerae representative isolates from serogroup O1

Gong, L., Yu, P., Zheng, H., Gu, W., He, W., Tang, Y., Wang, Y., Dong, Y., Peng, X., She, Q., Xie, L. & Chen, L., 2019, In : Molecular Genetics and Genomics. 294, 2, p. 417-430

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Vibriocholerae, which is autochthonous to estuaries worldwide, can cause human cholera that is still pandemic in developing countries. A number of V. cholerae isolates of clinical and environmental origin worldwide have been subjected to genome sequencing to address their phylogenesis and bacterial pathogenesis, however, little genome information is available for V. cholerae isolates derived from estuaries, particularly in China. In this study, we determined the complete genome sequence of V. cholerae CHN108B (non-O1/O139 serogroup) isolated from the Yangtze River Estuary, China and performed comparative genome analysis between CHN108B and other eight representative V. cholerae isolates. The 4,168,545-bp V. cholerae CHN108B genome (47.2% G+C) consists of two circular chromosomes with 3,691 predicted protein-encoding genes. It has 110 strain-specific genes, the highest number among the eight representative V. cholerae whole genomes from serogroup O1: there are seven clinical isolates linked to cholera pandemics (1937–2010) and one environmental isolate from Brazil. Various mobile genetic elements (such as insertion sequences, prophages, integrative and conjugative elements, and super-integrons) were identified in the nine V. cholerae genomes of clinical and environmental origin, indicating that the bacterium undergoes extensive genetic recombination via lateral gene transfer. Comparative genomics also revealed different virulence and antimicrobial resistance gene patterns among the V. cholerae isolates, suggesting some potential virulence factors and the rising development of resistance among pathogenic V. cholerae. Additionally, draft genome sequences of multiple V. cholerae isolates recovered from the Yangtze River Estuary were also determined, and comparative genomics revealed many genes involved in specific metabolism pathways, which are likely shaped by the unique estuary environment. These results provide additional evidence of V. cholerae genome plasticity and will facilitate better understanding of the genome evolution and pathogenesis of this severe water-borne pathogen worldwide.

Mario Muscat, the Senglea coach, produced a tactical masterclass when he roped in Jan Tanti and Leighton Grech late in the game and it was these two players that turned the match in favour of the Cottonera side. In fact, trailing to Zach Scerri’s second-half goal, Tanti rifled home the equaliser with 15 minutes to go and then the Malta U-21 international picked Grech to head home the winner. It was a stunning victory for the Cottonera side who now await the winner of today’s third round match between Floriana and Melita.

Protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah. Tweeting a satirical poem. Attending a climate conference. Campaigning against a power plant. These actions hardly conjure images of suicide bombers or coup plotters. Yet, they have been labelled “eco-terrorism,” “extremism,” or “threats to national security” by governments and businesses that seek to block the work of environmental activists.

As young people around the world gather for a global climate strike on Friday, and as the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) begins in Madrid on Monday, conference delegates would do well to consider that one important way to protect the environment is to protect environmental defenders.

To be sure, environmentalists face dangers beyond being labelled security threats. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists defending ecosystems and ancestral lands are threatened, attacked and even killed with near-total impunity. But the unjust labelling of environmentalists as dangerous criminals or threats to national security is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the aegis of the law.

Authorities have an obligation to prosecute criminal acts. But typically, environmental defenders peacefully exercise their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. Only in exceptional cases would their acts meet a generally-accepted definition of terrorism. And when environmentalists engage in civil disobedience, they do not usually aim to undermine the rule of law. Yet, we should consider the following:

  • In Poland, days before hosting the COP24 in December 2018, authorities issued a terrorism alert and denied entry to at least 13 foreign climate activists registered to attend, calling them security threats. Poland also empowered the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or participants’ knowledge.
  • In France, days before hosting the COP21 in November 2015, authorities placed at least 24 climate activists under house arrest using emergency counterterrorism measures enacted after the deadly Paris attacks that month. The activists were accused of flouting a ban on COP21 protests.
  • In Iran, eight members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, imprisoned since early 2018, were just handed prison terms of up to 10 years for allegedly spying for the US. During a flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards accused them of using their work protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah as a cover. The group’s founder, also arrested in 2018, died in custody under suspicious circumstances.
  • In Kenya, authorities have unjustly accused environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project of ties to the extremist armed group al-Shabab and threatened, beat, and arbitrarily detained them. In July, a court suspended the project’s coal-fired power plant. Activists contend the development will still destroy forests, kill fish, and displace communities.
  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society activists, including environmentalists, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organisation. Until a court intervened, the list included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and has protested Philippines mining projects.
  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho was cleared of “terrorism” charges for opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon.
  • In the US in 2018, the then-interior secretary blamed wildfires on “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging. In 2017, a pipeline operator sued Greenpeace and other environmental groups for a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against an oil pipeline. A court dismissed the lawsuit in February. Largely peaceful protesters said the underground pipeline threatened Native American sacred sites and drinking water.
  • In Russia, since 2012, at least 14 environmental organisations have had their work curtailed and in June, the head of the group Ecodefence!, fled the country to avoid being targeted under an abusive “foreign agents” law. In April, a court fined an environmental activist for “mass distribution of extremist materials” for posting a satirical poem about mining oligarchs.

During the COP25, participating governments should encourage activists to air their concerns about the climate crisis and their own safety, and draw on their combined expertise to help identify solutions.

They should also commit to rigorously implementing treaties that protect environmental defenders. One is the Aarhus Convention, which the European Union and Poland have been criticised for flouting. Another is Latin America’s Escazu Agreement, which requires just five additional ratifications to enter into force. Chile, which will preside over the COP25, should lead by example and ratify it.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders—including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Targeted: Counterterrorism Measures Take Aim at Environmental Activists

 Cache   

On November 29, 2019, young people will gather at locations around the world for a Fridays for Future Global Climate Strike. On December 2, United Nations delegates, world leaders, business executives, and activists will meet at the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) in Madrid to discuss ways to protect the environment. Participants in these events should also discuss ways to protect the protectors: the individuals and groups targeted around the world for their efforts on behalf of the planet.

The dangers facing environmental defenders do not stop at accusations that they are national security risks. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists seeking to preserve ecosystems and ancestral lands are being threatened, attacked, and even killed with near total impunity, Human Rights Watch has found. But in contrast to many of these illegal acts, the unjust labeling of environmentalists as security threats is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the color of law.

And while not all environmental activism is peaceful, only in exceptional cases would the actions of environmental activists meet a generally recognized definition of terrorism – actions aimed at terrorizing populations by causing or threatening death or serious physical harm to others to advance an ideological or political agenda. Nor, in nearly all cases, do their actions aim to undermine the rule of law. Typically, these individuals and groups are peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. When they engage in civil disobedience, their aim is usually to strengthen – and improve the enforcement of – existing environmental protection measures. Here are a few examples where environmental activists have been smeared as terrorists or other national security threats:

  • In Poland, the authorities denied entry in December 2018 to at least 13 foreign climate activists who were registered to attend COP24 in the southern city of Katowice, contending they posed a threat to public order and national security. Along with other individuals and groups, the activists had planned to press COP24 participants for rapid action to address climate change.

    The authorities had previously passed a special law empowering the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or the participants’ knowledge and consent and ban spontaneous protests during COP24. They also issued a terrorism alert that authorized increased vehicle checks and other security controls for Katowice and surrounding areas for the duration of the summit. Border officials detained and questioned several activists for hours, in some cases without allowing them to communicate their location or contact a lawyer.

  • In November 2015, French police used a sweeping counterterrorism emergency law enacted in response to the deadly Paris attacks earlier that month to place at least 24 climate activists under house arrest without judicial warrant, raid activists’ homes, and seize computers and personal belongings.

    The activists were accused of flouting a ban on organizing protests related to COP21, which was being held in France the following week to sign the Paris Agreement on reducing emissions that contribute to global warming.

  • In Iran, six members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF), imprisoned since early 2018, were handed prison terms of up to 10 years in November for allegedly spying for the United States. During a deeply flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards said the environmentalists used their work to protect the Asiatic cheetah – one of the world’s most endangered species – as a cover. A charge against four of the accused of “spreading corruption on Earth,” a crime that can carry the death penalty, was reportedly dropped in October. Two other PWHF members also detained in early 2018 were awaiting judgment. A ninth environmentalist, PWHF founder Kavous Seyed Emami, died a few weeks after his arrest under suspicious circumstances in what the Iranian authorities alleged to be a suicide.

An Iranian court in November 2019 sentenced Bayani, Tahbaz, Jokar, Ghadirian, Khaleghi and Kashani to prison terms of 6 to 10 years.

    Issa Kalantari, the head of Iran’s Department of Environment, said there was no evidence that the detained environmentalists were spies. He said the arrests have had a chilling effect on environmental groups in the country.

    The arrests appear to be motivated both by Iran’s “paranoia” about foreign countries using environmentalists as cover and its recognition that anger over environmental degradation can unite populations against government policies, said Kaveh Madani, the country’s former deputy environmental director. Madani returned to his native Iran from London in 2017 to take up the post, but said he was immediately detained and questioned by Revolutionary Guards, who broke into his phone, computer, emails, and social media accounts, and called him a “bioterrorist,” a “water terrorist,” and a spy. He left Iran after seven months, alleging repeated harassment including for his criticism of dam projects, which are constructed by the Revolutionary Guards.

  • In Kenya, the police and military have frequently labeled environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project in the Lamu coastal region, including a coal-fired power plant, as “terrorists” while subjecting them to threats, beatings, and arbitrary arrests and detentions. In 15 cases documented by Human Rights Watch between 2013 and 2016, the authorities accused environmental defenders of membership in, or links to, the extremist armed group al-Shabab but provided no compelling evidence.

    The activists are protesting construction of the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor, the biggest infrastructure project in Central and East Africa, which is to include a 32-berth seaport, three international airports, a road and railway network, and three resort cities. They contend that LAPSSET will pollute the air and water, destroy mangrove forests and breeding grounds for fish, and take farmland without just compensation, displacing communities and destroying their livelihoods.

    In July, Kenya’s environmental tribunal blocked approval of the power plant absent a new environmental impact study, finding the China-backed developers’ original assessment and public consultation process inadequate. The rest of the LAPSSET project continues. So does the intimidation campaign, activists protesting LAPSSET told Human Rights Watch.

  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society members, including environmentalists and indigenous rights defenders, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organization. Duterte’s “terrorist list” included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and a climate change activist.

    In late 2017, Tauli-Corpuz had criticized the government for attacks and other abuses against indigenous communities that opposed coal and diamond mining on ancestral lands. Although a Manila court months later ordered the government to remove Tauli-Corpuz from the list, a Philippines military official in 2019 renewed the campaign against her, accusing her of “infiltrating” the UN for the communist insurgents. Several UN human rights experts condemned Tauli-Corpuz’s listing.

  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before the prominent environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho, a Shuar indigenous leader, was able to clear himself of “terrorism” charges for his activities opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon. Acacho was charged with terrorism in 2010 for allegedly inciting violence during Shuar protests against a mining law.

    Pepe Acacho, second from left, leaves a courtroom in Quito, Ecuador, on February 8, 2011, after a judge granted his habeas corpus petition.

    He was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Human Rights Watch reviewed the trial documents and found no credible evidence of terrorism-related crimes. In 2018, Ecuador’s highest court threw out the terrorism conviction but instead sentenced him to eight months in prison for “public services obstruction” – a charge for which he was never tried and hence never had the opportunity to contest. Acacho spent 17 days in jail before receiving a presidential pardon in October 2018.

  • In the US in August 2018, then-US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging for wildfires on the West Coast – a proposition immediately attacked by leading environmental organizations including the Sierra Club. In 2017, 84 members of the US Congress, most of them Republicans, asked the Justice Department if activists mobilizing against the construction of oil pipelines could be prosecuted as terrorists. (The department’s response was that in some cases, yes.)

    That same year, a major pipeline operator, Energy Transfer Partners LP, filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, accusing them of launching a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline. Environmental activists and Native American tribes had tried to block construction of the 1,172-mile-long, underground pipeline through North Dakota during a protracted standoff with the authorities in 2016, saying it threatened sacred sites and drinking water. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year.

    Although the protesters were largely peaceful, some resorted to violence and were convicted of protest-related crimes, but none for offenses that even remotely approximated terrorism. UN experts condemned security force responses to the protests as “excessive,” including their use of rubber bullets, teargas, compression grenades, mace, and “inhuman and degrading” detention conditions.

  • In Russia, at least 14 environmental groups have stopped work in recent years, and the head of the prominent group Ekozaschita! (Ecodefense!), Alexandra Koroleva, fled the country in June to avoid prosecution under the draconian Law on Foreign Agents. The 2012 law requires any Russian group accepting foreign funding and carrying out activities deemed to be “political” to register as a “foreign agent,” a term that in Russia implies “spy” or “traitor.” Authorities have used the law to silence groups that opposed state-sanctioned development projects and petitioned authorities for the release of imprisoned environmental activists, a Human Rights Watch investigation found.

    Russian officials including the special envoy for environmental protection, Sergey Ivanov, have applied the “extremist” label to Greenpeace Russia. An activist with Stop GOK, a Russian group seeking to block mining and enrichment plants, was fined in April 2019 for “mass distribution of extremist materials” because he published a poem on the organization’s social media page that the government had banned as extremist in 2012. The Russian nongovernmental organization SOVA Center, which analyzes counter-extremism trends, found that the poem, “Last Wish to the Ivans,” is a satirical address to destitute, alcohol and drug-addicted Russians from oligarchs and authorities profiting from extracting natural resources.

    Stop GOK and Greenpeace Russia were among groups named in a 2018 report by pro-government technologists as “environmental extremists” working for “influential forces in the West” bent on sabotaging strategic industries. The report was widely covered by state-controlled media.

Civil society participation will be crucial to ambitious outcomes at COP25. Parties to the summit, which include all UN member countries and the European Union, should allow activists ample opportunity to air their concerns about the climate crisis and use their combined expertise to help identify solutions. They should also provide activists with a safe space to speak out about the threats they face for carrying out their work.

In addition, parties should publicly commit to robustly carrying out international and regional treaties that protect environmental defenders. One of these treaties is the Escazu Agreement (the Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean), the world’s first covenant to include specific provisions promoting and protecting environmental defenders. Twenty-one countries have signed the 2018 agreement. But only six countries have ratified it – five shy of the ratifications needed to enter it into force. Chile, which stepped down as COP25 host because of protests stemming from economic grievances, but will still preside over the negotiations in Madrid, should lead by example and ratify the agreement.

COP25 participants should also commit to upholding the Aarhus Convention (the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters), to which Spain is a signatory. The convention – an environmental pact for Europe, the European Union, and Central Asia – grants the public, including environmental groups, an array of rights including public participation and access to information and justice in governmental decisions on the environment, without harassment or persecution. Parties to the treaty, including the EU, and Poland for its crackdown at COP24, have been criticized – including in some cases by the Aarhus Convention’s own oversight body – for flouting these provisions.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders – including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Ives Gandra e a “pena de morte” a sindicatos e à FUP



Marcelo Auler
A legislação brasileira jamais admitiu a pena de morte. Só a aceita em casos de guerra. Apesar disso, através de uma decisão monocrática, o ministro do Tribunal Superior do Trabalho (TST), Ives Gandra da Silva Martins Filho, provocado pela Petrobras, deu decisão que praticamente condena à morte nove sindicatos e a própria Federação Única dos Petroleiros (FUP). A título de multa, determinou que essas entidades recolham judicialmente a bagatela de R$ 32 milhões.
A punição é decorrente de os trabalhadores, após cumpridas todas as exigências legais, terem exercido, nos dias 25 e 26, o direito constitucional de greve, na disputa que travam com a empresa pelo pleno cumprimento do Acordo Coletivo de Trabalho. Gandra Martins Filho rejeita a legalidade da greve poucos dias depois de assinado o Acordo. Os petroleiros alegam que artigos do ACT não estão ameaçados por conta da política de privatização imposta pelo governo de Jair Bolsonaro. Governo eleito com o apoio de Gandra Martins Filho, como noticiou Denise Rothenburg. no Correio Braziliense, em 27 de outubro de 2018.
Além de punir pela greve, o ministro exorbitou no valor da multa: R$ 2 milhões por dia de paralisação cobrado de cada um dos nove sindicatos filiados à FUP (Norte Fluminense, AM, SP, CE/PI, RN, BA, PE/PB, PR.RS) e da própria Federação. Exorbitou, ainda, na forma da cobrança. Sem oferecer prazo para que o dinheiro fosse pago, mandou bloquear R$ 5,826 milhões encontrados em 26 contas bancárias dessas mesmas entidades, transferindo esse valor para uma conta judicial.
Como ainda faltam R$ 26,171 milhões para atingir o total da multa aplicada, Gandra Martins Filho mandou a estatal repassar direto para a conta judicial as mensalidades dos sindicatos descontadas tradicionalmente nos contracheques de seus empregados sindicalizados.
Portanto, não bastasse ter raspado todo o caixa dessas dez entidades, o ministro ainda determinou o bloqueio das futuras receitas. Algo que, no entendimento de alguns operadores do direito ouvidos pelo Blog, é ilegal. Seja como for, sem dúvida comprometerá a sobrevida das entidades sindicais.
Em decisão do dia 27, Gandra Martins Filho autorizou a Petrobras e bloquear os descontos que faz dos empregados para os sindicatos.
Essa medida acarreta na prática a extinção da atividade desses sindicatos (morte no sentido figurado) e a Constituição Federal assegura a liberdade de atividade sindical (em sentido figurado, a vida)“, concorda um desembargador aposentado do TRT.
A ação pedindo Tutela Cautelar Antecedente no TST diante da promessa da greve,  contra a greve (TutCautAnt – 1000961-35.2019.5.00.0000) foi impetrada pela Petrobras na sexta-feira, 22 de novembro, contra 13 sindicatos e a FUP. Por sorteio, foi distribuída ao ministro Caputo Bastos, que por questões pessoais já se disse impedido de julgar causas da estatal. Na redistribuição, parou nas mãos de Gandra Martins Filho. Na mesma sexta-feira ele despachou estipulando a exorbitante multa.
Na decisão expôs que “a greve não é um direito absoluto, estando sujeito aos limites da lei (CF, art. 9º, §§ 1º e 2º), a qual considera abusivo seu exercício após a assinatura de acordo coletivo de trabalho (Lei 7. 783/89), salvo se houver descumprimento de cláusula do acordo (art. 14, parágrafo único, I), o que, como visto, é impossível de ter ocorrido, em tão curto espaço de tempo em relação a cláusula de caráter programático (10 dias após a assinatura do acordo).”
No domingo (24/11), os petroleiros ingressaram com um Agravo, junto ao próprio relator do processo. No Agravo, alegaram que “as cláusulas tidas por descumpridas (41, 73 e 86) já constavam de acordos anteriores, e o descumprimento vem de antes do acordo, tendo a Autora induzido em erro este juízo, ao não reconhecer tal fato”.  As entidades sindicais destacaram ainda que como anunciaram com antecedência, o movimento não envolve o risco de abastecimento alegado pela companhia junto ao Tribunal, tal como ressaltado no Informativo da FUP.
O relator do processo recusou-se a rever sua decisão. Com isto o Agravo terá que ser julgado no plenário da Seção de Dissídio Coletivo do TST, mas por conta do recesso de final de ano, isso só acontecerá em 2020.  Depois, caberá recurso ao próprio plenário do TST e, por fim ao Supremo Tribunal Federal.
Por conta do bloqueio das contas, feito sem que o prazo de dez dias fosse dado aos réus para o recolhimento do dinheiro, a FUP, na terça-feira (26/11), ingressou com Mandado de Segurança questionando a penhora do dinheiro.
O MS 1000982-11.2019.5.00.0000 foi equivocadamente distribuído para a própria Autoridade Coatora, ré no caso, ministro Ives. Redistribuído, foi para o ministro Agra Belmonte. Como não houve liminar, sua apreciação dependerá ainda das informações a serem prestadas pelo próprio Gandra Martins Filho. O prazo é de cinco dias, o que dificultará que o caso seja apreciado no Órgão Especial do TST antes do recesso de final de ano.
Ou seja, é longo o caminho a ser percorrido sem que estas entidades tenham recursos em caixa e ainda estando com suas receitas confiscadas. Caso nenhuma outra medida seja tomada, as entidades serão inviabilizadas financeiramente. Algo a ser comemorado pela equipe do governo de Bolsonaro que não quer negociar com sindicatos, menos ainda os mais combativos.
Gandra Martins Filho foi declarado
Gandra Martins Filho foi declarado “persona non grata” pela Associação Nacional dos Magistrados do Trabalho – Anamatra (foto: TST)
Gandra Martins Filho é um homem conservador, católico tradicional, membro da organização de direita Opus Dei. Na presidência do TST, ocupada até fevereiro de 2018, esforçou-se pela aprovação da chamada Reforma Trabalhista de Michel Temer que, reconhecidamente tolheu direitos trabalhistas. em maio do ano passado, chegou a dizer que “se esses magistrados continuarem se opondo à modernização das leis trabalhistas, eu temo pela Justiça do Trabalho. De hoje para amanhã, podem acabar com [a Justiça do Trabalho]”.
Em consequência desta afirmação e da defesa que fez das Reforma Trabalhista, durante o XIX Congresso Nacional dos Magistrados da Justiça do Trabalho (XIX CONAMAT), no último sábado (4/5), o ex-presidente do Tribunal Superior do Trabalho (TST) Ives Gandra Martins Filho foi declarado persona non grata à magistratura trabalhista.
Por tal perfil, as posições dele não surpreendem a muitos. Posição, por sinal, manifestada pela juíza Valdete Souto Severo, presidente da Associação de Juízes pela Democracia (AJD). Para ela, a decisão de Gandra Martins Filho não causa espanto, “por não ser a primeira vez que ele se manifesta de forma contrária a direitos trabalhistas. Ele foi um dos idealizadores e participou de grupos de trabalho para a reforma trabalhista, então não é de espantar. Mas é preciso que se denuncie isso porque vai ficar muito difícil sair defendendo uma estrutura de Poder Judiciário se aqueles que à compõem não compreendem a razão histórica da sua existência. A Justiça do trabalho só existe para dar efetividade aos direitos trabalhistas”. Prosseguindo, ela alerta:
O fato de o Poder Judiciário Trabalhista, em um momento como este, investir contra os sindicatos, não apenas impedindo ou tentando impedir o exercício da greve, mas também aplicando multas que, sem dúvida nenhuma inviabilizam a atividade sindical, demonstra que a gente, na verdade, tem um quadro muito mais grave e profundo do que, a princípio, pode parecer“.
Ainda dela a advertência:
É importante que se diga que esses direitos trabalhistas são condição, inclusive, para que a sociedade capitalista siga existindo. Porque, se retira-se direitos trabalhistas e as pessoas não conseguem mais reivindicar através da greve e sobreviver através do salário, não se tem sociedade…. não há como subsistir em uma sociedade capitalista que depende diretamente de pessoas que têm um mínimo de dignidade na vida e que consigam viver e consumir, sobretudo, com tranquilidade. Então a AJD é absolutamente crítica a qualquer ato judicial ou legislativo que fragilize ou suprima o direito fundamental de greve no Brasil“.
O mesmo desembargador aposentado que admitiu acima que a decisão é sentença de morte aos sindicatos, concorda com a queixa da FUP pela falta de prazo para o recolhimento da multa e vê na medida um abuso de poder:
Do ponto de vista da ameaça de multa é abuso de poder por via judicial. A jurisprudência e a lei sempre foram contra multas excessivas. Mais recentemente limitou-se a multa em condomínios. No Tribunal de Justiça do Rio não se admite multa maior que o valor do principal. O bloqueio cautelar só se justifica ante fundado receio de não pagamento. O que só ocorreria se não feito depósito no prazo a ser intimado aos sindicatos“.
Também sob a promessa de OFF, ou seja, sem ser identificada, uma juíza do trabalho aposentada vê que a decisão não cumpre o princípio básico do Judiciário, que é o de solucionar conflitos:
A decisão judicial, em vez de compor conflitos, vai acirrá-los. Aplica-se a lei friamente, sem pensar nas questões paralelas. Do ponto de vista principiológico, o juiz, mesmo correndo o risco de ser acusado de omissão, deve fazer valer o dever principal da Justiça de compor conflito. Não é razoável uma multa que feche o sindicato”.
Vem dela a comparação com a pena de morte do sindicato em um momento em que o país assiste ressurgirem métodos tipicamente fascistas:
É como se você concebesse no ordenamento jurídico a pena de morte. O ordenamento jurídico brasileiro não comporta a pena de morte e isto é uma pena de morte para os sindicatos. A União e a sociedade têm interesse em pacificar o conflito, não destruir os sindicatos. Só que hoje temos um dado novo, o fascismo
Ela recorda-se de um caso ocorrido no Espírito Santo que, também em uma negociação da Petrobras com sindicatos, houve decisão superior para se reter dinheiro dos sindicatos. O magistrado de piso primeiro fez uma série de questionamento ao autor da decisão, tentando ganhar tempo. Depois, em um acordo entre empresa e sindicato, o dinheiro foi liberado.
A FUP tem consciência de que apenas medidas jurídicas podem não solucionar o problema. Será preciso uma reação também política, uma vez que a intenção do ministro relator atende ao governo que ele ajudou a eleger:
Multas para forçar o cumprimento de uma ordem judicial são comuns, mas devem guardar razoabilidade com o patrimônio de quem é executado. O valor da multa deixa claro que o objetivo do relator bolsonarista é destruir os sindicatos. Não apenas os forçar a não fazer greve. Por isso, a reação tem que ser jurídica, mas também política“, explica a fonte ao Blog.

Bridgestone Partners with Inspiring Athletes in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina on the Road to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

 Cache   

Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone), a subsidiary of the world’s largest tire and rubber company and a Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner, today announced its support for a group of five inspiring athletes from Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina on the road to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The celebrated roster includes Aída Román (archery) and Rommel Pacheco (diving) from Mexico, Andrea Vargas (athletics) from Costa Rica, Darlan Romani (athletics) from Brazil, and María José Granatto (field hockey) from Argentina. As the first members of Team Bridgestone in Latin America, these athlete ambassadors will represent the company in its activities leading up to Tokyo 2020. In setting national records and collecting dozens of international medals, this accomplished group has demonstrated the ability to deliver clutch performance in the biggest moments and inspire others through their passion and perseverance.

“Bridgestone is committed to improving the way people move, live, work, and play, and these efforts are reflected in our support of the Olympic Movement, the Paralympic Movement, and the world’s greatest athletes,” said Joseph Saoud, president, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations Latin America (BATO LA). “Our new Team Bridgestone ambassadors are some of the most decorated champions from across Latin America who have unique and powerful personal experiences to share. Bridgestone is proud to celebrate their journey and work together in motivating people of all abilities to keep chasing their dreams.”

As the only Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner with its global headquarters in Tokyo, the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games hold a special significance for Bridgestone. The company is supporting its largest global roster of Team Bridgestone athletes to date, with these five stars from Central and South America joining a group of more than 60 ambassadors across 20 countries. In addition to these new additions in Latin America, Bridgestone previously announced partnerships with a group of eight athlete ambassadors in the United States and Canada.

Team Bridgestone athlete ambassadors are selected based on criteria related to the company’s core values, their personal stories, performance attributes, and community involvement. Each athlete receives financial support and access to cutting-edge Bridgestone products and technologies. They also will participate in community, customer and employee activities before, during and after the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Meet Team Bridgestone

María José Granatto began playing field hockey at age four, competing in an older age group to challenge herself and improve her game. Since then, Granatto never stopped pushing to become the best and now plays forward for the Argentinian women’s national field hockey team, Santa Barbara Hockey Club in Argentina, and HC Oranje-Rood, a Dutch field hockey club. Granatto represented her home country at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and was named the International Hockey Federation’s “Rising Star of the Year" (2016 and 2017). Most recently, the 24-year-old helped lead Argentina to a gold medal finish at the 2019 Pan American Games that secured qualification for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Darlan Romani is a Brazilian shot put star who is currently ranked third in the world. He has held the Brazilian record since 2012 and became the first from his country to qualify for the Olympic shot put event in 80 years at the Olympic Games Rio 2016. Romani broke his own national record twice during his Olympic Games debut and finished fifth, marking the highest finish ever for a Brazilian in the event. He was named the Best Athlete in Athletics for Brazil in 2018 after becoming the first South American and one of only 30 people in the world to throw past the 22m mark. Most recently, Romani overcame a severe illness to win gold and set another record at the 2019 Pan American Games. He followed that performance with a fourth-place finish in the event’s strongest field ever at the 2019 World Athletics Championships. The 28-year-old is now training to leave a legacy for himself, his family, and his country at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Andrea Vargas is a two-time Central American champion sprint hurdler from Costa Rica who showed a love for running from an early age. She participated in several track and field disciplines and won her first international track and field medals at age 10 before choosing to focus on the 100m hurdles as a teenager. Now the 23-year-old continues to set records and make history for her home country. In August 2019 she became the first Costa Rican woman to win a track and field gold medal at the Pan American Games, and she followed it with a fifth-place finish at the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships that set a new Central American record. For Vargas, the road to Tokyo 2020 is a family affair: her mother is her coach, her siblings help her train, her father structures practice, and her husband and daughter are her support system.

Aída Román is a three-time Olympian from Mexico with an individual silver medal in archery from the Olympic Games London 2012. She has collected an extensive list of individual international medals across her celebrated career, including a silver and a bronze from the Pan American Games, as well as gold medals from the 2014 World Cup and World Indoor Championships. Since joining the national team in 2007, Román has also helped Mexico win team medals in the Pan American Games, World Championships, and World Cup. Following a disappointing performance at Rio 2016, Román is focused on getting back to the podium at Tokyo 2020 and helping Mexico win its first-ever Olympic Games team medal.

Three-time Olympian Rommel Pacheco has been diving since he was seven years old, but his professional diving career began in 2003 when he won gold in the 10-meter platform event at the Pan American Games. The following year, Pacheco competed with Team Mexico at the Olympic Games Athens 2004 and placed tenth in both the springboard and platform events. He received the National Sports Award from the Mexican government in 2005 and returned to the Olympic Games at Beijing 2008 to place eighth on the 10-meter platform. A shoulder injury kept him from competing at London 2012, but he bounced back with a fifth-place finish in synchronized springboard at Rio 2016. The 33-year-old has announced plans to retire from professional sports next year, and his final goal is to win his first Olympic Games medal at Tokyo 2020.

Mohawk’s Air.O Becomes First Unified Soft Flooring to Achieve Declare and Health Product Declaration Certifications

 Cache   

Mohawk Industries announced today at Greenbuild that the company’s Air.o Unified Soft Flooring (USF) line has achieved rigorous Declare and Health Product Declaration (HPD) certifications. Air.o has been showcased this week as part of Mohawk’s portfolio of flooring solutions designed to minimize environmental impact at the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The Air.o display at Mohawk’s booth helped the manufacturer earn the coveted Green Exhibitor Attendee Choice award at the international trade show yesterday.

Engineered with just one material and latex-free with no “new carpet” smell, Air.o is the only 100% recyclable soft flooring available in the market. The line continues to expand to meet growing popularity demands and serve the needs of families everywhere. Air.o gives consumers greater design capabilities while offering an easy-to-clean, VOC-free option to serve their homes.

“Declare labels and HPDs help us expand our commitments more strategically and better communicate, organize and connect Mohawk’s holistic approach to sustainability across our family of brands,” said George Bandy Jr., chief sustainability officer at Mohawk Flooring North America. “The next generation is very cognizant of the types of companies and organizations with which they do business. We know that this next step in our journey will allow us to reach new customers and spread our message of sustainability further than ever before.”

Mohawk holds current and relevant certifications that illustrate its leadership in product transparency and commitment to manufacturing products that help contribute to healthy spaces. The International Living Future Institute’s Declare program provides a clear, elegant and informative "nutrition label" for building products.

Science warnings, U.S. retreat add urgency to U.N. climate talks

 Cache   
MADRID – Mass protests, a last-minute venue change and talk of climate tipping points are adding some unplanned drama to this year’s international talks on tackling global warming.

Delegates from almost 200 countries had hoped to put the finishing touches to the rules governing the 2015 Paris accord, ironing out a few wrinkles left over from last year’s conference in Katowice, Poland, and setting the scene for a major review of their efforts in 2020.

But then Brazil pulled its offer of hosting the talks and stand-in Chile, rattled by anti-government protests, canceled five weeks before the meeting. Next, President Donald Trump served formal notice that the U.S. was quitting the Paris accord, delivering a symbolic blow to one of his predecessor’s signature achievements.

And scientists? Well, they didn’t have any good news either. Study after study published in recent months has underscored the rapid pace of global warming and the need to urgently cut emissions of greenhouse gases.

Against that backdrop, the Dec. 2 to 13 meeting in Madrid has gained fresh impetus.

“We have to do more in less time,” said Spanish environment minister Teresa Ribera, whose country stepped in at short notice to host the talks, saying it wanted to support “constructive multilateralism” in the wake of Chile’s announcement and the U.S. withdrawal.

U.N. climate chief Patricia Espinosa said Saturday that “science tells us we are still in time” to tackle the climate crisis.

“That doesn’t mean changing the world by tomorrow, but we must make decisions today,” she said during a visit to the meeting venue.

Organizers expect about 25,000 visitors, including heads of state, scientists, seasoned negotiators and activists to attend the two-week meeting.

The main items on the agenda include finalizing rules on global carbon markets and agreeing how poor countries should be compensated for destruction largely caused by emissions from rich nations.

Proposals to create a worldwide market for emissions permits have been around for decades. The idea is that putting a price on carbon dioxide – the main greenhouse gas – and gradually reducing the available permits will encourage countries and companies to cut their emissions, notably by shifting away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources.

The European Union and some other jurisdictions already operate limited emissions trading systems, but efforts to roll these out worldwide have been hampered by fears that the lack of robust and transparent rules could corrupt the market.

“It would be great news to finalize this issue,” Ribera said. But she warned that the “solvency and integrity of the system” was a concern.

“If we cannot complete it correctly, it’s better to lay the ground for later completion,” Ribera said.

That view was echoed by Yamide Dagnet, a former EU climate negotiator now with the Washington-based environmental think tank World Resources Institute.

“Without proper oversight and robustness, these mechanisms could severely undercut climate action by creating loopholes, letting countries off the hook for making meaningful emission cuts, resulting in double counting and jeopardizing environmental integrity,” she said.

The question of compensating poor countries for environmental destruction – technically referred to as loss and damage – also is likely to be sensitive, said Dagnet. Attributing specific weather disasters such as hurricanes and floods, or slow but irreversible changes like sea level rise and desertification, to climate change remains a delicate issue given the potential sums involved.

Concerns about the cost of climate change are growing on all fronts. Trump cited financial demands on the U.S. as one of the reasons for quitting the Paris accord; European countries have hesitated to raise fuel prices for fear of sparking yellow vest-style protests like those seen in France; meanwhile, businesses are beginning to consider the price not just of reducing emissions but also of failing to do so.

Scientists say the time to act is now if the world wants to meet the goal set in Paris of keeping global warming well below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. By some measures average temperatures have already increased by 1 degree Celsius since pre-industrial times, with the sharpest rise occurring in the last few decades.

“Global warming is going faster,” said Johan Rockström, co-director of Germany’s Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. “Climate impacts are occurring earlier and we are approaching potentially irreversible thresholds earlier than we previously thought.”

Rockström and several colleagues recently warned that the world is heading for several “ tipping points ” that could sharply accelerate the pace of climate change. They include deforestation in the Amazon and the decline of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.

Such messages resonate with environmental activists like Laura Laguna, a member of the Madrid chapter of Fridays for Future, one of the groups planning to protest during the climate talks, known as the 25th Conference of the Parties, or COP25.

“We are close to the point of no return on global warming,” Laguna said. “Our generation’s future depends on what we do now.”

Ribera, whose formal title is interim minister for ecological transition, indicated that European Union leaders may try to send a strong signal during the meeting that the bloc is prepared to make sharper cuts to its emissions than previously pledged. A recent proposal to aim for “climate neutrality” by 2050 failed to win support from all of the EU’s 28 member states – including the host of last year’s talks, Poland.

The House Intelligence Committee is moving forward with the impeachment inquiry. Members will reportedly begin reviewing a report on the panel's investigation into President Trump's alleged efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rivals Monday. They will reportedly have a 24-hour window to sift through the report before it goes to a vote Tuesday. The vote is mainly a formality and is expected to be split along party lines, which means it will likely be approved and then passed along to the House Judiciary Committee. The Judiciary Committee will then begin its own proceedings Wednesday. President Trump's counsel have been invited to attend and participate in the initial hearing, but there is no indication that will happen. [NBC News, Politico]

Nine passengers were killed after a single engine plane crashed near Chamberlain, South Dakota, on Saturday. Among those killed were the pilot and two children. Three passengers survived and were taken to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The plane was headed to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Chamberlain was reportedly in the midst of a winter storm at the time of the crash, though the National Transportation Safety Board is considering weather as just one possible factor in its investigation of the incident; no cause has been determined yet, and a preliminary investigation report is expected to be released within two weeks. The model of plane reportedly can carry no more than one pilot and 10 passengers. [The Associated Press, NPR]

New Orleans Police said 11 people were shot early Sunday in the city's French Quarter, and two people are reportedly in critical condition. Initially, 10 people were taken to two different hospitals for treatment before another person walked into a hospital on their own. Police confirmed they were in the immediate area, just feet away from the shooting, since large crowds were gathered for the Bayou Classic football game between Southern and Grambling State. But the amount of people in the vicinity made it difficult to determine who fired the shots. One person was reportedly detained, but it isn't clear if the individual was involved in the shooting. The investigation is ongoing. [ABC News, NBC News]

Former Vice President Joe Biden launched an eight-day, 18-county bus tour in Iowa on Saturday, as he looks to make progress in the state before the Democratic presidential primary caucus in February. The tour, which has been named "No Malarkey," will reportedly allow Biden to meet face-to-face with Iowans, with a particular emphasis on the state's rural communities. Biden is aiming to appeal to people he meets by showing how his healthcare, agriculture, education, and climate change plans will benefit those communities, but he also reportedly wants to focus on their values, which he said were under attack from President Trump.

Tens of thousands of pro-democracy, anti-government protesters returned to the streets Sunday in Hong Kong. The latest march was approved by authorities and began peacefully, but eventually ended with police clearing the demonstrators, dispersing crowds with tear gas. Some protesters reportedly veered off the sanctioned paths and and hurled insults at police, whom they have accused of brutality, while carrying vulgar signs. After the march, some masked protesters in the city's Whampoa district damaged traffic lights, blocked roads, and vandalized shops and restaurants believed to have links to mainland China, prompting riot police to arrive at the scene. At least three people were were arrested in the area. [The South China Morning Post, The Washington Post]

A shootout Saturday in the town of Villa Union, a small town near the U.S. border, resulted in the deaths of 10 suspected cartel gunmen and four police officers. Six other police officers were reportedly injured. The governor of the northern state of Coahuila, Miguel Angel Riquelme, said the state acted "decisively" in response to the presence of the cartel members. The heavy fighting reportedly began around noon and lasted for more than an hour. Riquelme said authorities identified 14 vehicles involved in the attack and seized more than a dozen guns. The fighting took place following President Trump's announcement that he was preparing to designate the cartels as terrorist groups, which didn't sit well with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who hopes to avoid direct foreign intervention in Mexico.

Black Friday shoppers reportedly spent $7.4 billion online, making Friday the second-largest online shopping day ever, trailing only last year's Cyber Monday event. Online sales rose by 19.6 percent from last year. Meanwhile, brick-and-mortar retail fell by 6.2 percent compared to last year, signaling a growing preference for online purchasing. The decline, though, may also be related to growing store traffic on Thursday evening, which increased by 2.3 percent. "There is no longer one way to shop on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday," said Brian Field, senior director of global retail consulting for ShopperTrak. Estimates for Cyber Monday are as high as $9.4 billion. [CNBC, Reuters]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is leading a Democrat-only congressional delegation consisting of 13 House members and one senator to Madrid's COP25 summit.

The Democrats attending reportedly range from members of Congress who support the Green New Deal to those who want to approach Washington's environmental policy more cautiously in the hopes of hammering out legislation alongside Republicans.

In an Instagram post Saturday, DiCaprio denied Bolsonaro's claims and stated his support for Brazilian groups working to protect the Amazon, but he said he did not fund the groups targeted by the president. Additionally, two major environmental groups protecting the Amazon criticized Bolsonaro's accusations, calling them an attempt to "undermine environmental defenders and distract the general public from policies that directly lead to environmental disasters."

As Climate Protesters Fume, Envoys Build a Wall of Green Money

 Cache   

As Climate Protesters Fume, Envoys Build a Wall of Green Money(Bloomberg) -- Climate envoys from almost 200 nations will gather in Madrid starting Monday for two weeks of talks organized by the United Nations. The ambition at COP25 is to build on the four-year-old Paris Agreement, at which governments pledged to limit fossil-fuel pollution, by reviving a corner of the market in carbon pollution credits. If that doesn’t sound like stakes commensurate with the ongoing climate crisis, that’s because it isn’t.Protesters have taken to the streets again and again this year calling for immediate action to cut back on fossil fuels, including thousands of arrests in more than a dozen cities in October alone. The 16-year-old activist Greta Thunburg harangued world leaders for their inaction at the prior UN climate summit. The politics of the masses and the politics of the diplomats have rarely been so mismatched as they are at these Madrid climate talks.“There is a disconnect between what people are asking for and what we’re seeing,” Gilles Dufranse, policy officer at Carbon Market Watch, a Brussels-based research group that advises companies on how to put a price on greenhouse-gas emissions. “Multilateral meetings are very difficult, but it’s the only solution we have.”And billions of dollars could be in play, which is why thousands of companies and hundreds of financial institutions will be watching COP25 closely. Away from the headlines and grand promises sought by environmental groups, the delegates are quietly building a legal framework to support a wall of money that will guide the world in a greener direction.Scientific findings this year have given an urgency to the process. Carbon emissions and temperatures have been breaking records, which scientists have linked to the increased frequency of violent storms and wildfires everywhere from Sweden to Japan and California. Global temperature increases since the industrial revolution are on track to push well past the UN target of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit), according to research from Climate Action Tracker, a group of three consultants examining the issue. While few would notice that amount of warming on a single day, when applied to the world as a whole it would mark the quickest shift in the climate since the end of the last ice age some 10,000 years ago.Shifting the world away from fossil fuels will require mind-boggling amounts of money. At least $71 trillion needs to be invested into energy over the next 20 years to reach the nirvana where global warming is held in check and the UN meets its sustainable development goals, according to the International Energy Agency. That’s about a fifth more than the $59 trillion that the IEA figures will be spent under a business-as-usual scenario.Raising that amount of cash requires slow and careful work. Like arms control or trade negotiations, the climate talks deliver milestone treaties only after years of preparation, spending the time in between on fine details undergirding broad arrangements already put in place. The carbon market is one of the most complicated mechanisms envoys have worked on, since it touches so many parts of the economy.The aim is to set up a system that creates credits for work done to reduce emissions. That might include installing wind farms, protecting forests or insulating buildings so they consume less energy. Countries that generate more savings than their target would be able to sell those credits to others that are struggling to reach their goal.In theory, that will channel money to projects where the biggest savings can be made most cheaply. The difficulty is in defining what kinds of work count, how to measure those savings and what would ensure that countries don’t get credit both for making the savings and generating a credit. And this year, the envoys will talk about how to add the UN sustainable development goals to the market mechanism, adding issues like poverty and water protection to the list of things that might be able to generate a credit.The Long Road to MadridThe meeting in Madrid is part of a series of discussions stretching back three decades. It will bring together energy and environment ministers from the 197 countries that signed the Framework Convention on Climate Change in 1992. About 20,000 people will attend, including press, pressure groups and multinational institutions ranging from OPEC to the World Bank.The 1992 treaty held that global warming was real, rich industrial nations caused it and should therefore help developing countries with aid and technology to support greener solutions. While each one of those ideas is controversial now in Washington, the U.S. ratified the treaty under Republican President George H.W. Bush. President Donald Trump has vowed to pull out of the Paris Agreement but not the convention that made the 1992 treaty possible.The convention led to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which was a landmark because it mandated emissions cuts in 37 industrial nations plus the European Union. That group vowed to cut fossil fuel pollution 5% from 1990 levels by 2012, and later signed up to a second commitment period that will finish next year, when the Paris Agreement kicks in.Paris marked the first time that all countries, rich and poor alike, agreed to make cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions. That brought China and India into the system. They had no obligations under Kyoto but since then have become two of the worst polluters. The cost of bringing those countries on board was that the Paris commitments are voluntary — every country decides for itself what level of emissions cut it can make and how those will be achieved.On the Agenda This YearThis year’s meeting in Madrid is meant to elaborate on Article 6 of the 27-page Paris Agreement. That section deals with creating market mechanisms that each nation can use to help it meet emissions targets—something companies think they can profit from.These systems aren’t new. The Clean Development Mechanism came out of Kyoto and has fed at least $138 billion into projects that reduce harmful gases that come from burning fossil fuels. The ambition in Madrid is to create a “Sustainable Development Mechanism” that might go well beyond the work of the CDM, feeding money both to clean-energy programs and to projects that meet the 17 UN sustainable development goals.Friction over the nature of the rules is threatening this work and prevented a deal on Article 6 last year. Industrial nations led by the European Union want careful record-keeping and verification to make sure aid money actually goes into cutting emissions, which was one of the things the CDM lacked. Developing nations led by Brazil want a more flexible and free-wheeling system where a wider variety of programs qualify. An agreement is crucial to get big money to back the new Sustainable Development Mechanism credits.“What is critical is the credibility of the system,” said Gianpiero Nacci, deputy head of climate finance at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, a London-based institution that’s helping commercial banks unlock money for green finance. “It could accelerate low-carbon investment.”About 2 billion CDM credits each representing 1 ton of avoided emissions were issued over the life of the program. The value of those credits peaked at more than 21 euros ($23) in 2008. They tumbled since and trade at around 17 cents apiece now after the EU, which was the main buyer of the credits, lost faith in CDM bookkeeping and wanted to clear up a glut in its own Emissions Trading System.The CDM’s demise still rankles developing nations, which are anxious to see the cash infusion they’ve been promised. A decade ago, industrial countries pledged to step up climate-related aid to $100 billion a year by 2020. While they’re on the way to reaching that goal, dishing out $71.2 billion in 2017 according to the OECD, there’s little detail on how that money will flow in the future.That puts attention on the Article 6 debate. Creating rules around a Sustainable Development Mechanism would also set out a framework for clean-energy developers financiers to work with and unlock money for more emissions-cutting work. Slowly, the financial world is taking note. More than 500 fund managers with $35 trillion of assets calling on governments to take more action through a London-based group called the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change.“Business people want clarity,” said Jean-Marc Ollagnier, chief executive of Accenture Plc’s resources operating group. “When they get clarity they will find incentives to invest. If they don’t, they will find excuses to delay.”To contact the authors of this story: Reed Landberg in London at landberg@bloomberg.netJeremy Hodges in London at jhodges17@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Aaron Rutkoff at arutkoff@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Qatar Airways Cargo announces massive expansion in South America in 2020 with four new destinations

 Cache   

Qatar Airways Cargo, one of the leading air cargo carriers is excited to announce major expansion of services in South America.  Scheduled services to Campinas, Brazil (VCP), Santiago, Chile (SCL), Lima, Peru (LIM) and Bogotá, Colombia (BOG) will join the airline’s global freighter network on 16 January 2020 and will be serviced by a Boeing 777 freighter.

The twice-weekly flights to Bogotá from Doha will operate via Luxembourg and Miami, while the service from Bogotá to Doha will operate via Liège, offering 200 tonnes on each leg. The twice-weekly flights to Campinas from Doha will operate via Luxembourg with the service from Campinas to Doha, operating via Santiago, Lima, Dallas and Luxembourg, also offering 200 tonnes on each leg. These new destinations will commence close on the heels of the recent arrival of the airline’s twenty-first brand new Boeing 777 freighter on 25 November 2019. The new freighter increased the airline’s freighter fleet to 28 aircraft. Qatar Airways Cargo also has an order for five additional Boeing 777 freighters, placed at the Paris Air Show 2019, with deliveries starting from April 2020 onwards.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Air cargo is a crucial element in the global transport system that supports international trade and the free flow of goods around the world. The addition of these four new routes in South America further reinforces our position as one of the world’s leading air cargo providers, operating one of the largest networks in the world with the youngest and most environmentally efficient fleet in the industry.” Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Guillaume Halleux, said, “We are very excited about our expansion in South America. The Americas are a very important market for us and there is a huge demand for South American fresh produce in Asia. With the introduction of our twice-weekly Boeing 777 freighter services, we offer exporters in South America a direct route for their cargo and a global network. Importers also stand to gain from the huge capacity to bring in their cargo to South America.”

Qatar Airways Cargo announces 2 [qatarisbooming.com].jpg

General cargo, pharmaceuticals, and perishables will form the majority of goods imported and exported to and from South America along with some movements of live animals and high-value items like telecommunication equipment, electronics and other valuable cargo. The award-winning cargo carrier has an extensive network in The Americas serving 18 freighter and 13 belly-hold cargo destinations in the region. The carrier recently completed a year of successful transpacific operations, now operating four-times weekly freighters direct from Asia to North America.

Qatar Airways Cargo has made substantial investment in its operations at Doha hub and globally to ensure all cargo deliveries are processed efficiently and seamlessly. Special facilities and well-trained personnel ensure expert handling over a wide variety of product categories, such as express, livestock, valuables, perishables, oversized cargo and general cargo that require air freight carriage.

Qatar Museums inaugurates Where Cultures Meet: A Photographic Encounter Between Qatar and India exhibition

 Cache   

Qatar Museums (QM) hosted the opening ceremony of “Where Cultures Meet: A Photographic Encounter Between Qatar and India” as part of its annual Year of Culture programme. The exhibition opened at Katara Cultural Village and will be on show until the 31st of December in Gallery 18.

As part of Qatar-India 2019, two Qatari photographers – Hamad Al Shamari and Aisha Al Sadah – travelled to the Himalayan Region of Ladakh, India for two weeks. The aim was to create an inspiring portfolio that will help foster mutual understanding and cultural relations between the two countries. Alongside it, two Qatar-based Indian photographers – Ajeesh Puthiyadath and Salim Abdulla – were selected as part of an open call to participate in the exhibition.

The exhibition presents common themes like architecture, landscape, portraits and street life both in Ladakh – a remote land tucked in the valleys among barren mountains and where communities known for their tolerant and generous manner live in peace – and in Doha, a bustling metropolis made up of century-old markets and futuristic buildings that line its waterfront. Commenting on the exhibition, Aisha Al Attiya, Head of Years of Culture at QM said: “The annual photography exhibition is an important milestone in the Years of Culture programme. It promotes an appreciation for our similarities with partner countries and celebrates the differences between our two cultures and perspectives. We hope that the trip to Ladakh will continue to inspire Hamad Al Shamari and Aisha Al Sadah for many years to come.”

Under the leadership of its Chairperson Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, QM developed the “Year of Culture” initiative — an annual international cultural exchange programme designed to deepen understanding between nations and their people. Though the formal programming lasts only one year, the initiative often sparks long-lasting collaboration.

Previous years of culture include: Qatar Japan 2012, Qatar UK 2013, Qatar Brazil 2014, Qatar Turkey 2015, Qatar China 2016, Qatar Germany 2017 and Qatar Russia 2018.

Haunting gibbons' songs could aid their conservation

 Cache   

Dena Clink is a primatologist studying individuality and variation in Bornean gibbon calls, which she says could aid these primates' conservation. She joins this episode to play some recordings of these fascinating songs & calls she’s made in the course of her research, and explain how they're used and what they may mean to the species.

We’ve featured a wide variety of bioacoustics studies here on the Mongabay Newscast, from whales to bats and birds, but these are usually recordings of species at the population level. Our guest today focuses on how calls vary between each gibbon, and what that can teach us about the animals, and their conservation needs.

Sušić: Nisam lešinar da napadam, kada neko umre, da dođem do plijena

 Cache   

safet susicNisam lešinar da napadam, kada neko umre, da dođem do plijena, rekao je Safet Sušić za Anadolu Agency (AA) nakon što se u pojedinim bh. medijima pojavila informacija da je glavni kandidat za novog/starog selektora fudbalske reprezentacije Bosne i Hercegovine, s kojom je učestvovao na Svjetskom prvenstvu u Brazilu 2014. godine.

 

“To nije moj stil. Nije sada pošteno pričati da li bih se vratio na klupu fudbalske reprezentacije BiH. Ne želim. Prosinečki je danas završio s reprezentacijom BiH. Doduše, bilo je očekivano da više neće biti selektor poslije kvalifikacija u kojima smo podbacili. Nikakav kontakt dugo vremena nisam imao niti s jednim čovjekom koji odlučuje u Nogometnom/Fudbalskom saveza BiH. Pretpostavljam da ljudi iz Saveza već imaju rješenje za nasljednika Prosinečkog, a sa mnom, kao što sam već rekao, nisu pričali”, istakao je Sušić.

 

Smatra da BiH može proći baraž za EURO 2020 pogotovo, jer i eventualnu drugu, finalnu utakmicu igra na domaćem terenu.

 

“Šanse za plasman na EURO 2020 su realne. Postoje, jer dvije utakmice igramo kući. Ipak, iz igračkog iskustva reći ću vam da nije lako zaredom dobiti dvije utakmice na svom terenu u pet dana. Međutim, igrat ćemo s reprezentacijama našeg nivoa i ponovit ću da su šanse realne, barem 50 posto za plasman na EURO. Ko god da bude selektor, trebao bi mobilizovati sve snage, možda za te dvije utakmice i vratiti neke igrače koji su se oprostili od reprezentacije, naravno, ako oni to žele. Treba napraviti najbolju moguću selekciju te uz veliku podršku navijača pokušati se plasirati, poslije Svjetskog prvenstva u Brazilu, i za nas prvo Evropsko prvenstvo”, kazao je Sušić.

 

Sušić je najuspješniji selektor u historiji fudbalske reprezentacije BiH i jedini koji je s nacionalnim timom ove balkanske zemlje izborio plasman na završnicu velikog takmičenja.

 

Popularno zvane “zmajeve” s klupe je predvodio od 29. decembra 2009. godine do 17. novembra 2014. U 49 utakmica ostvario je 23 pobjede, devet remija i imao 17 poraza, uz gol razliku 83:59.

Bridgestone Partners with Inspiring Athletes in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina on the Road to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

 Cache   

Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone), a subsidiary of the world’s largest tire and rubber company and a Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner, today announced its support for a group of five inspiring athletes from Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina on the road to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The celebrated roster includes Aída Román (archery) and Rommel Pacheco (diving) from Mexico, Andrea Vargas (athletics) from Costa Rica, Darlan Romani (athletics) from Brazil, and María José Granatto (field hockey) from Argentina. As the first members of Team Bridgestone in Latin America, these athlete ambassadors will represent the company in its activities leading up to Tokyo 2020. In setting national records and collecting dozens of international medals, this accomplished group has demonstrated the ability to deliver clutch performance in the biggest moments and inspire others through their passion and perseverance.

“Bridgestone is committed to improving the way people move, live, work, and play, and these efforts are reflected in our support of the Olympic Movement, the Paralympic Movement, and the world’s greatest athletes,” said Joseph Saoud, president, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations Latin America (BATO LA). “Our new Team Bridgestone ambassadors are some of the most decorated champions from across Latin America who have unique and powerful personal experiences to share. Bridgestone is proud to celebrate their journey and work together in motivating people of all abilities to keep chasing their dreams.”

As the only Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner with its global headquarters in Tokyo, the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games hold a special significance for Bridgestone. The company is supporting its largest global roster of Team Bridgestone athletes to date, with these five stars from Central and South America joining a group of more than 60 ambassadors across 20 countries. In addition to these new additions in Latin America, Bridgestone previously announced partnerships with a group of eight athlete ambassadors in the United States and Canada.

Team Bridgestone athlete ambassadors are selected based on criteria related to the company’s core values, their personal stories, performance attributes, and community involvement. Each athlete receives financial support and access to cutting-edge Bridgestone products and technologies. They also will participate in community, customer and employee activities before, during and after the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Meet Team Bridgestone

María José Granatto began playing field hockey at age four, competing in an older age group to challenge herself and improve her game. Since then, Granatto never stopped pushing to become the best and now plays forward for the Argentinian women’s national field hockey team, Santa Barbara Hockey Club in Argentina, and HC Oranje-Rood, a Dutch field hockey club. Granatto represented her home country at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and was named the International Hockey Federation’s “Rising Star of the Year" (2016 and 2017). Most recently, the 24-year-old helped lead Argentina to a gold medal finish at the 2019 Pan American Games that secured qualification for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Darlan Romani is a Brazilian shot put star who is currently ranked third in the world. He has held the Brazilian record since 2012 and became the first from his country to qualify for the Olympic shot put event in 80 years at the Olympic Games Rio 2016. Romani broke his own national record twice during his Olympic Games debut and finished fifth, marking the highest finish ever for a Brazilian in the event. He was named the Best Athlete in Athletics for Brazil in 2018 after becoming the first South American and one of only 30 people in the world to throw past the 22m mark. Most recently, Romani overcame a severe illness to win gold and set another record at the 2019 Pan American Games. He followed that performance with a fourth-place finish in the event’s strongest field ever at the 2019 World Athletics Championships. The 28-year-old is now training to leave a legacy for himself, his family, and his country at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Andrea Vargas is a two-time Central American champion sprint hurdler from Costa Rica who showed a love for running from an early age. She participated in several track and field disciplines and won her first international track and field medals at age 10 before choosing to focus on the 100m hurdles as a teenager. Now the 23-year-old continues to set records and make history for her home country. In August 2019 she became the first Costa Rican woman to win a track and field gold medal at the Pan American Games, and she followed it with a fifth-place finish at the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships that set a new Central American record. For Vargas, the road to Tokyo 2020 is a family affair: her mother is her coach, her siblings help her train, her father structures practice, and her husband and daughter are her support system.

Aída Román is a three-time Olympian from Mexico with an individual silver medal in archery from the Olympic Games London 2012. She has collected an extensive list of individual international medals across her celebrated career, including a silver and a bronze from the Pan American Games, as well as gold medals from the 2014 World Cup and World Indoor Championships. Since joining the national team in 2007, Román has also helped Mexico win team medals in the Pan American Games, World Championships, and World Cup. Following a disappointing performance at Rio 2016, Román is focused on getting back to the podium at Tokyo 2020 and helping Mexico win its first-ever Olympic Games team medal.

Three-time Olympian Rommel Pacheco has been diving since he was seven years old, but his professional diving career began in 2003 when he won gold in the 10-meter platform event at the Pan American Games. The following year, Pacheco competed with Team Mexico at the Olympic Games Athens 2004 and placed tenth in both the springboard and platform events. He received the National Sports Award from the Mexican government in 2005 and returned to the Olympic Games at Beijing 2008 to place eighth on the 10-meter platform. A shoulder injury kept him from competing at London 2012, but he bounced back with a fifth-place finish in synchronized springboard at Rio 2016. The 33-year-old has announced plans to retire from professional sports next year, and his final goal is to win his first Olympic Games medal at Tokyo 2020.

Mohawk’s Air.O Becomes First Unified Soft Flooring to Achieve Declare and Health Product Declaration Certifications

 Cache   

Mohawk Industries announced today at Greenbuild that the company’s Air.o Unified Soft Flooring (USF) line has achieved rigorous Declare and Health Product Declaration (HPD) certifications. Air.o has been showcased this week as part of Mohawk’s portfolio of flooring solutions designed to minimize environmental impact at the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The Air.o display at Mohawk’s booth helped the manufacturer earn the coveted Green Exhibitor Attendee Choice award at the international trade show yesterday.

Engineered with just one material and latex-free with no “new carpet” smell, Air.o is the only 100% recyclable soft flooring available in the market. The line continues to expand to meet growing popularity demands and serve the needs of families everywhere. Air.o gives consumers greater design capabilities while offering an easy-to-clean, VOC-free option to serve their homes.

“Declare labels and HPDs help us expand our commitments more strategically and better communicate, organize and connect Mohawk’s holistic approach to sustainability across our family of brands,” said George Bandy Jr., chief sustainability officer at Mohawk Flooring North America. “The next generation is very cognizant of the types of companies and organizations with which they do business. We know that this next step in our journey will allow us to reach new customers and spread our message of sustainability further than ever before.”

Mohawk holds current and relevant certifications that illustrate its leadership in product transparency and commitment to manufacturing products that help contribute to healthy spaces. The International Living Future Institute’s Declare program provides a clear, elegant and informative "nutrition label" for building products. Declare aligns with Mohawk’s commitment to transparency in support of the Living Building Challenge's Red List and Responsible Materials Imperatives to streamline material documentation and project certification. Declare helps consumers make conscious, informed decisions.

Health Product Declaration™ (HPD), developed by the Health Product Declaration Collaborative™, is a standard format for reporting product ingredients and associated health information. HPDs objectively provide the critical information needed to support accurate supply chain disclosure and informed decisions by building designers, specifiers, owners and end users.

“Consumers want to know that a company like Mohawk has a commitment to transparency, effectiveness, performance, design and overall corporate social responsibility,” added Bandy. “It’s not just about creating better products, but also about educating our consumers at the point of sale around the types of solutions that are better for them and their families.”

Greenbuild continues through today, Nov. 22, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Developing an emissions reduction pathway in three Brazilian states

 Cache   

Earlier this year, our Climate Pathway Project team conducted stocktaking missions in three Brazilian states – São Paulo, Mato Grosso and Amazonas – to identify policies and plans to support them in tracking emissions and developing long-term emissions reduction pathways.

About the states

In order to develop the Climate Pathway Project in Latin America, seven jurisdictions were selected in four different countries. All of them are considerably distinct in terms of economic activities, and, consequently, also in terms of GHG emission profiles. The three Brazilian states within the project represent a total of 25% of the Brazilian population, 31% of the land area and 35.4% of the national GDP.

São Paulo, Brazil

As the biggest economy in the country, São Paulo state is the largest contributor to emissions. Despite the high levels of urbanization and heavy industry within the state, São Paulo also has considerable livestock and agriculture activities, which are driven mainly by sugarcane, soy and forestry (eucalyptus and pine) production. Given these characteristics, GHG emissions are concentrated in the energy, AFOLU and waste sectors, which are the target sectors for the project.

Mato Grosso, Brazil

Mato Grosso, in turn, has a much larger countryside and is one of the biggest grain producers in the world as well as planning to be the first Brazilian ethanol producer by 2020. Livestock is also a large industry in Mato Grosso, with 30 million cattle – 14% of the national cattle population and more than ten times the human population. Despite the low population and industrial activities, Mato Grosso is ranked as the second biggest GHG emitter in the country (with 68% of its emissions coming from land use change and 27% from agriculture and livestock).

Amazonas, Brazil

Similarly to Mato Grosso, the state of Amazonas has a low population density due to the high percentage of Amazonic forest recover. Industries are present in the urban area of the state, the capital, Manaus, and the “Zona Franca”, a free tax region for industrial products, which generates thousands of direct and indirect jobs.

Despite the distinct trajectories of the three states, they are all committed to reducing their GHG emissions in the long-term and taking ambitious climate action.

Stocktaking

During the stocktaking missions, our team presented the Climate Pathway Project to Secretaries of Environment, local government representatives, partners from civil society, private sector representatives and local communities. A key outcome of the missions was that all three states view the project as a way of unifying existing efforts and programs.

The project team was pleased to encounter communities that are engaged and committed to climate action and, in all three states, it was clear that the significant amount of data already developed can be used as building blocks for the pathway development.

We are now supporting the states to seek alternative development solutions that are innovative, promote socio-economic gain while also consciously managing their natural resources.

Outcomes and Next Steps

The commitment of the states to the project was admirable and, having taken part in high level meetings with the Brazilian President and other Ministers, their seriousness to setting out informed climate mitigation planning processes was clear.

The project team is now working to encourage stakeholder engagement and retrieve local emissions data to begin analytical work. Through bi-weekly calls, webinars and upcoming capacity building workshops, the project will continue to build knowledge, encourage active participation and teach governments about the importance of data collection and emissions monitoring.

Brazil’s president criticizes DiCaprio over Amazon fires

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Without offering proof, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Friday said actor Leonardo DiCaprio had funded nonprofit groups that he claimed are partly responsible for fires in the Amazon this year. Bolsonaro’s remarks about the American actor were part of a wider government campaign against environmental nonprofit groups operating in Brazil. […]

Leonardo DiCaprio Responds to the Brazilian President's Accusations

 Cache   


Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro reportedly accused actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio of setting the Amazon on fire. "DiCaprio is a cool guy, isn't he?" the president said to his supporters on Friday, per Page Six. "Giving money to set the Amazon on fire." Now, DiCaprio has responded to these statements.

None


These accusations stem from Bolsonaro's claims that some nonprofit groups are partly responsible for fires in the Amazon this year. He's having investigations held, and as reported by the Associated Press, police raided the offices of two nonprofits in the state of Pará just this week. Four volunteer firefighters were arrested and being investigated for "allegedly igniting fires to obtain funding from sympathetic donors."

None


Again, these accusations against the nonprofits is unfounded, and are nothing more than conspiracy theories.

None


"While worthy of support, we did not fund the organizations targeted," DiCaprio said in his statement to the Associated Press. "The future of these irreplaceable ecosystems is at stake and I am proud to stand with the groups protecting them."

Brazilian President Accuses Leonardo DiCaprio of Setting the Amazon on Fire

 Cache   


Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has reportedly accused Leonardo DiCaprio of helping set off the catastrophic Amazon fires.

None


Page Six reports that President Bolsonaro has blamed the noted environmental activist of spurring the disaster via his donations to local nonprofits, following his foundation's $5 million pledge to help impacted areas and stop the fires.

"DiCaprio is a cool guy, isn't he?" the president said to his supporters on Friday, per the publication. "Giving money to set the Amazon on fire."

None


Previously, the president has spread conspiracy theories blaming his critics and these nonprofits of "purposefully setting fires to attract contributions from around the world" in an effort to make him look bad.

None


That said, President Bolsonaro himself doesn't have the best of track records to begin with. Per Foreign Policy, he has been a proponent of rolling back anti-deforestation legislation and sought "to dismantle Brazil's environmental protections and agencies and ramp up access to mining concessions, especially on protected indigenous land." He's also previously stated that Brazil can't fight these fires due to a lack of resources.

None


DiCaprio has yet to respond to the president's allegation.

BTS Fans Urge Big Hit to Subtitle Their New DVD

 Cache   


Brazilian ARMYs have taken matters into their own hands after discovering that BTS' newest DVD, BTS WORLD TOUR: LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF SAO PAULO, does not have Portuguese subtitles. The movie recounts the onstage and behind-the-scenes events at BTS' historic Allianz Parque performance back in May.

To get Big Hit Entertainment's attention, ARMYs decided to get #BigHitAddSubs trending on Twitter so that they might hopefully get a translation for all the Portuguese-speaking fans wanting to purchase the new DVD. The efforts came soon after preorders opened, with more than one complaint about the status of the new merchandise.


None


Many ARMYs in the now-top trending tag on Twitter are voicing their concerns, not only about the new DVD, but also about the principle of not offering a wide range of translations. Those upset with the lack of options are making it clear that they are not against learning or being exposed to Korean, but that it "takes time" — they are also pointing out that the issue is less about the language of the subtitles, and more about a lack of awareness in the global marketing of the new product.


None


ARMYs are coming together under the hashtag to let it be known that future preorders and marketing of global content should not only be conscious of consumers, but also of how hard some ARMYs have to work to even just have access to BTS-related merchandise.

None


Until Big Hit updates fans, explore #BigHitAddSubs to see the events unfold in real-time.

None


Correction: An earlier version of this article implied that non-ARMYs were helping Brazilian BTS fans put pressure on Big Hit. ARMYs have made us very much aware that this is not the case, and that they fight this battle alone. We wish them well and regret the error.

Subject: A romantic evening with Jackie Allen
Posted: 01 Dec 2019 at 4:58pm

ACCLAIMED JAZZ VOCALIST JACKIE ALLEN'S 
LIVE CONCERT:
"A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN: 
LIVE AT THE ROCOCO"
TWO-DISC CD + BLU-RAY
(CONCERT CURRENTLY BEING BROADCAST ON PBS STATIONS NATIONWIDE)
AVAILABLE OCTOBER 14, 2019 ON AVANT BASS RECORDS


Over a career spanning more than three decades, renowned vocalist JACKIE ALLEN has recorded 12 CDs that have garnered wide critical acclaim. Downbeat Magazine said that her last album, Rose Fingered Dawn, displays "polished virtuosity... a shimmering paradigm of stylish and sophisticated jazz singing." Allen is now releasing her newest project, A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN: LIVE AT THE ROCOCO, a two-disc Blu-ray and CD set.
 
With her smoky and suggestive voice, distinctive phrasing, and improvisatory chops, Allen is a true jazz singer. A natural storyteller, she can interpret jazz ballads with great sensitivity and fluently transform pop tunes into the jazz idiom. As with Allen's other recordings, A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN presents a mix of musical styles, from classic jazz tunes to up-tempo swing numbers, soulful R&B, lush ballads, and jaunty sambas.
 
Allen is also an outstanding arranger. She adapted most of the tunes on this album with her own inimitable style and emotive approach to lyric interpretation. She and her husband, the top-notch bass player HANS STURM, have been making music together since the early 1980s. Sturm has performed with a Who's Who of well-known jazz artists, such as Eddie Daniels, Phil Woods, and Randy Brecker, among many others. Allen and Sturm are both distinguished musicians in their own right, and together they make a formidable musical enterprise. The two have teamed up once again to create this unique, two-disc collection, with Sturm producing the video portion of the project.
 
Although you can find a couple dozen videos on YouTube of Allen's performances, this is the first time she has captured an entire live performance on video. Fans can purchase just the CD recording of the music or the two-disc set containing the Blu-ray DVD of the live performance. The DVD also features interviews with Allen discussing the music, as well as interviews with the band and segments chronicling some of Allen's travels and performances around the country.
 
Allen and Sturm are originally from Chicago but have been living in Lincoln, Nebraska, for several years. Lincoln is also the home of the Lied Center, the leading arts center in Nebraska whose mission is to present distinguished artists in all art forms and genres from around the country and around the world. Ann Chang, the Center's artistic director, is a fan of Allen's and approached her to do a show around Valentine's Day that focused on romantic songs.
 
The Lied Center was expanding its performance venues and had recently begun hosting shows at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln. The Rococo is an elegant art space that was called The Stuart Theater when it opened in 1929. As with many old buildings, it went through several transformations over the years, from a movie theater to condominiums on the upper floors, before it was completely refurbished and re-christened in 1981.
 
With its restored marble and ornate chandeliers, Chang thought it would the perfect venue for Allen's show.With a beautiful location, the romantic theme of the concert, and, of course, Allen's sumptuous vocals, Sturm thought it would be a good idea to video the performance for release to NET, Nebraska's NPR television station. The project, however, took two years to be released. Sturm discovered that, unlike licensing music for distribution, obtaining the synchronization rights for the video was a far more daunting task. With all the rights finally secured, a shortened, half hour version of the video was put into the NETA system. NETA is The National Educational Telecommunications Association, an association representing 275 member stations in 46 states that, among its many services, provides one-of-a-kind documentaries to NPR affiliates. A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN has already been shown on several NPR stations across the country.
 
Allen brought her longtime recording band from Chicago to Lincoln for this performance. Besides Sturm on bass, the band includes pianist BEN LEWIS, who has been travelling the world lately with the Lt. Dan Band, which was founded by Gary Sinise to perform at USO shows, entertain troops, and raise money for disabled veterans; versatile guitarist JOHN MOULDER, who has performed with Eddie Harris and Donny McCaslin, among others; and percussionist DANE RICHESON, who is a world percussion specialist as well as a jazz drummer. For this special event, she also brought out BOB SHEPPARD, the Los Angeles-based woodwinds maestro who has performed with an astounding crop of A-list jazz giants.
 
Sung with the emotional honesty that Allen is known for, the tunes on this recording befit the romantic motif of the evening. Allen opens the CD with "What a Little Moonlight Can Do" that features a duet with Allen and Lewis playing stride piano. Allen's arrangement of the Ellington/Strayhorn classic "Daydream" has a buoyant, lilting feel with some interesting changes in meter. "Lazy Afternoon" has a haunting vibe that features the African mbira, also called the 'thumb piano,' with Sheppard on flute while Moulder and Sturm provide additional harmonic colors. Allen does a funky version of Billy Preston's "You Are So Beautiful," made famous by Joe Cocker. Sheppard really gets down on his tenor solo on Smokey Robinson's "The Way You Do The Things You Do." Arranged by Lewis, Allen simply nails the biting, tongue-in-cheek lyrics on the Rodgers & Hart standard "Everything I've Got."
 
Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years" opens with just bass and voice, then is joined by drums and Lewis using the organ setting on his electronic keyboard. Allen arranged "My Funny Valentine" as a samba. It features Richeson playing the pandera, a type of Brazilian tambourine. Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "This Guy" is the quintessential love song. Allen's intimate performance is enhanced by Moulder's classical technique on a nylon string guitar and Sheppard on flute. Allen closes the concert with "Nobody Does It Better," composed by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager. It was recorded by Carly Simon as the theme song for the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, and makes it to almost all lists of the top romantic songs ever.
 
With its stellar musicianship and Allen's sexy and emotive vocals, A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN has the kind of intimate feel that pairs beautifully with a candlelight dinner and a bottle of good champagne.
 
A ROMANTIC EVENING WITH JACKIE ALLEN will be available in stores and online everywhere.

Well, we're in it now. The home-stretch. Thanksgiving is in the rear-view, Christmas and New Year's is ahead, and in the meantime, the business of packing as much fun as possible into what's left of the year is underway, and this weekend's got a lot to choose from, including a whole comedy festival kicking off, Holiday celebrations lighting up the night, many musical adventures, some SATAN, and more! Hit the links below and plan your weekend accordingly

Friday, Nov 29

SAINt JHN, Kodie Shane
Saint Jhn first showed up on my radar when he came in crooning alongside Blue Ivy Carter on “Brown Skin Girl,” a stand-out track from Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift. After some further digging, it quickly becomes clear why Yoncé invited the Guyanese-American rapper/singer/songwriter/producer, who grew up splitting time between Brooklyn and Guyana, for the track. Sonically speaking, everything is working on his sophomore full-length, Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs, from opening track “Wedding Day” to slappable songs like “Trap” featuring Lil Baby, and “Who Do You Blame.” Now he’s touring in support of the project, with Kodie Shane, a Black, queer rapper from Atlanta, as opener. Shane’s recent vibey single “End Like That” should convince you to get to the Hawthorne in a prompt manner. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $22-25, all ages) JENNI MOORE

Ha-Ha Harvest Comedy Fest
The Ha Ha Harvest Comedy Festival is bringing a cornucopia of laughs to town this holiday weekend and with a line-up featuring hometown hero Nathan Brannon, LA oddball Ron Lynch, Denver’s Janae Burris and Adam Cayton-Holland, NYC’s Dave Hill, and more, we've got plenty to be thankful for. Boasting a multi-venue format that echoes the Bridgetown Comedy Festival days of yore, you’ll spend the entire weekend hopping between clubs and venues while catching beloved homegrown shows like Pitch, Please!, Minority Retort, and Spec Script, delightful offerings from out-of-towners, along with more traditional stand-up showcases. Visit the event website for a complete list of venues, performers, and shows, along with ticketing info. (Fri-Sun Nov 29-Dec 1, Various Locations, $29-79) CHIPP TERWILLIGER

Amenta Abioto, Noah Simpson Group
I just can’t shut my trap when it comes to Amenta Abioto, whose work is a fluid combination of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and African music. To see her perform live is a real treat—Abioto has been at the top of her game recently, having perfected her soul-stirring vocals, improvised song-construction, and spot-on comedic timing.

Everett's Sleepover Club link up with Portland's Dress Forms and Ex-Kids for a Friday-night punk, garage and post-punk bill at No Fun. (Fri Nov 29, 9 pm, No Fun, $5)

Turnover, Men I Trust
Turnover is clearly having some sort of major growth spurt. A few years ago, the Virginia Beach band was part of emo’s new wave, cranking out buzzy pop-punk tunes on a couple of albums released by Run for Cover Records. But on Good Nature, Turnover completes its transition into a dreamy indie pop band, with chiming guitars, laid-back vocals, and gauzy vibes. Often when this kind of thing happens, the artist stays tight-lipped on the reasons, but Turnover is open and honest about the stylistic shift, which it attributes to a wider palette of influences over the past few years: vintage soul and blues, Frank Ocean, electronic, the Beach Boys, bossa nova music, and jazz.

Hopefully tonight, when the Blazers take on the Chicago Bulls, they can bring a video game to life better than, say… any of the Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat movies. Because yiiiikes.
