Mike Bloomberg says China is a democracy and Xi Jinping answers to his ‘constituents’

 Cache   

Michael ‘Mike’ Bloomberg didn’t get to be billionaire by being a dufus and doing no research. So why doe he tell Margret Hoover that China’s President Xi Jinping asnwer to his “constituents” and leader through the will of the people. Jinpins is, says Bloomberg, not a dictator.

in 2012, Xi walked at the front of the Politburo Standing Committee onto the stage at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. In 2017, “Xi Jinping thought” – an articulation of his political philosophy – was “enshrined in the constitution of the Chinese Communist Party”.

Bloomberg created the news organisation Bloomberg

In October 2019, it reported:

But the unrest underscored growing uneasiness with Xi’s style of rule, with U.S. lawmakers threatening sanctions over the government’s handling of Hong Kong and China’s mass detention of ethnic Uighurs. Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council — controlled by the pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party — issued a statement condemning China’s “one party dictatorship.”

China: the dictatorship without a dictator nearly all the Chinese never voted for.

Morality and Monastic Revival in Post-Mao Tibet

Morality and Monastic Revival in Post-Mao Tibet

Caple, J. E., Mar 2019, Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press. 232 p. (Contemporary Buddhism).

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

The speed and extent of the Tibetan Buddhist monastic revival make it one of the most extraordinary stories of religious resurgence in post-Mao China. At the end of the 1970s, there were no working monasteries; within a decade, thousands had been reconstructed and repopulated. Most studies have focused on the political challenges facing Tibetan monasteries, emphasizing their relationship to the Chinese state. Yet, in their efforts to revive and develop their institutions, monks have also had to negotiate a rapidly changing society, playing a delicate balancing act fraught with moral dilemma as well as political danger. Drawing on the recent “moral turn” in anthropology, this volume, the first full-length ethnographic study of the subject, explores the social and moral dimensions of monastic revival and reform across a range of Geluk monasteries in northeast Tibet (Amdo/Qinghai Province) from the 1980s on.

Author Jane Caple’s analysis shows that ideas and debates about how best to maintain the mundane bases of monastic Buddhism—economy and population—are intermeshed with those concerning the proper role and conduct of monks and the ethics of monastic-lay relations. Facing a shrinking monastic population, monks are grappling with the impacts of secular education, demographic transition, rising living standards, urbanization, and marketization, all of which have driven debates within Buddhism elsewhere and fueled perceptions of monastic decline. Some Tibetans—including monks—are even questioning the “good” of the mass form of monasticism that has been a distinctive feature of Tibetan society for hundreds of years. Given monastic Buddhism’s integral position in Tibetan community life and association with Tibetan identity, Caple argues that its precarity in relation to Tibetan society raises questions about its future that go well beyond the issue of religious freedom.

12 Reasons Climate Action Is Good for the United States Economy

The United States is the only nation that doesn't show up in the list of countries currently committed to the Paris Agreement. But that doesn't mean most Americans aren't trying to do their part. In fact, U.S. states, cities and counties that support the Paris Agreement make up about two-thirds of the American population and economy. If these climate-forward actors were a country, they'd have the second largest economy in the word – larger than China and behind only the full United States. American businesses and banks are also broadly supportive of the Paris Agreement, and are preparing—with or without federal action—for a low-carbon economic transition. Why do they all support climate action? Because it makes both economic and environmental sense.

1. The U.S. can lower emissions while growing the economy.

Since 2005, U.S. real GDP has increased 25% while energy-related CO2 emissions have fallen 12%. Technological advancements and energy efficiency improvements are allowing the economy to grow even as energy consumption remains flat, which means that the energy consumed per dollar of GDP is falling. While much more is needed, this is proof that the U.S. can decouple growth and emissions.

2. It's now cheaper to generate electricity from renewables than fossil fuels in most cases.

The costs of solar panels, wind turbines and lithium batteries have fallen precipitously in recent years as their role in the U.S. energy mix has grown. Today, it would be cheaper to replace three-quarters of existing U.S. coal plants with wind and solar power than to keep them operating with coal. Natural gas plants, previously the cheapest option to replace retiring coal plants, are now being undercut by renewables in many locations. New research finds that 90% of proposed gas-fired power plants are more costly to build and operate than a clean energy portfolio of solar, wind, battery technology and demand management.

3. Electric vehicles, electric heat pumps and other climate-friendly consumer technologies are becoming cheaper and cleaner too.

As of today, gasoline costs $2.62 on average in the United States, while charging an electric vehicle for the equivalent amount of energy costs only $1.21. If current trends continue, electric vehicles are expected to be cost-competitive on an upfront basis with gasoline vehicles by 2024-2028 in the United States. The lifetime fuel and maintenance costs for an electric bus are about $400,000 less than a diesel bus, which is why many transit systems and schools are switching over. Electric heat pumps, which are better for the climate than traditional gas furnaces, are cost-effective for most new homes. The environmental advantage of electric vehicles and heat pumps will only increase as coal-fired power plants continue to be replaced by cleaner alternatives.

4. Clean energy jobs already employ about 3.5 million Americans and are poised to grow.

There are already 2.3 million Americans employed in energy efficiency, 600,000 in clean electricity and fuels, 255,000 in electric and alternative fuel vehicles, 485,000 in fuel-efficient vehicles, and 65,000 in battery storage. Clean energy is generally more labor-intensive and less capital-intensive than fossil fuels, so switching from fossil fuels to clean energy can create net jobs. A 2017 study found that $1 million spent on fossil fuels in the U.S. will generate 2-3 full-time equivalent jobs, while $1 million spent on renewable energy or energy efficiency will create 7-8 jobs. Furthermore, workers in the clean energy sector can earn higher and more equitable wages when compared to all workers nationally.

5. By innovating, engineering and manufacturing clean technologies, the U.S. can increase its competitiveness.

As domestic and international demand for clean products and technologies rises, focusing on low-carbon manufacturing instead of doubling down on the industries of yesterday will give the U.S. an advantage in a growing market. As uptake of electric vehicles and energy storage systems increases, the battery market represents a significant opportunity for American manufacturing. The global lithium-ion battery market is projected to be $105 billion by 2025. Increasing low-carbon manufacturing would also create new employment: low-carbon jobs are particularly manufacturing intensive, with 17% to 26% of all clean jobs being in manufacturing.

6. Energy efficiency standards save consumers money and boost the economy.

Investments in energy efficiency in buildings, transportation and industry all pay off several times over in energy cost savings. For example, the average American family saves $500 a year on utility bills due to federal efficiency standards for appliances, lighting, and plumbing – with the benefits outweighing the costs by 5 to 1. Existing energy standards are estimated to be responsible for about 300,000 jobs, which are expected to rise to 500,000 by 2030. Strengthening these standards would lead to even more consumer savings, economic benefits and jobs.

7. Climate action presents unique economic opportunities for rural America.

Energy efficiency can play an important role in lifting the high energy burden of rural households who often pay higher energy prices than urban areas. In rural communities, which have witnessed a roughly 40% net decline in farm incomes since 2011, wind energy taxes and royalties have introduced new revenue streams into the local economy; wind farms paid $761 million in 2018 state and local taxes, plus $289 million in lease payments to farmers and landowners who host wind turbines on their land. Policymakers and industry are also interested in the idea of paying farmers based on their adoption of regenerative agricultural practices that foster carbon sequestration. If widely adopted, this could further support rural economies. To date, there have been more than $320 billion in U.S. investments that focus on sustainable food and agriculture, with $47.5 billion explicitly targeting regenerative agriculture.

8. Better planned, low-carbon cities are more productive.

American commuters lose 7 billion hours and 3 billion gallons of fuel while stuck in traffic each year. By planning our cities so that people have options to live closer to where they work and play, with ready access to public transit for all, we can increase both economic and energy efficiency. A 10% increase in population density in US cities is associated with about a 5% increase in medium- and high-skilled wages as well as 2% lower carbon emissions per capita.

9. Carbon pricing has been an economic boon for the 10 states that have it in place.

After California implemented the nation's first cap-and-trade system in 2006, it's economy grew faster than the nation as a whole, and it met its 2020 emissions reduction target four years early in 2016. More than half of the revenue from the carbon price is being used to benefit disadvantaged communities. Nine northeastern states are part of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a power sector cap-and-trade system launched in 2009, and three more plan to join. The proceeds from the initiative have used for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, electricity consumer bill assistance, and education and job training programs. The initiative has been a net economic benefit for the participating states and has reduced deaths and illnesses from air pollution.

10. Without action, the US will face increasing costs of climate damages.

Extreme weather and climate disasters have already caused about $150 billion in damage per year over the past three years, a drastic increase from historical trends. The National Climate Assessment, a report by top U.S. experts from 13 federal agencies released in late 2018, shows that climate change is already affecting American communities now, and it will only get worse. It found that in a high emissions future, economic damages from extreme temperatures, rising seas, and other impacts of climate change would reach $500 billion per year in 2090. Reducing emissions, on the other hand, could cut those costs approximately in half to $280 billion per year.

11. Reducing greenhouse gases also reduces other harmful air pollution, creating dramatic health improvements and reducing health costs.

In 2017, about 109,000 Americans died prematurely due to fine particulate matter and ozone pollution, and more than 40% of Americans live in counties that have experienced unhealthy pollution in recent years. If the U.S. reduced emissions in a way consistent with the Paris Agreement, it could reduce premature deaths from air pollution by about 30% in the next decade.

12. Smart and properly designed climate policies can build a more inclusive and prosperous economy for all.

Inequality is one of the greatest challenges facing America, and is very likely to be exacerbated by climate change.The impacts of climate change will be disproportionately felt by poor and marginalized communities. Choosing low-carbon options would not only improve public health, create jobs and cut energy bills, but many of the gains would be mostly enjoyed by low-income communities. Those most vulnerable to climate change are therefore also those who would benefit most from climate action. In addition, supportive policies can ensure that the low-carbon transition is equitable for communities formerly dependent on fossil fuels. For example, congressional investments in coal communities in 13 Appalachian states through the POWER initiative are projected to create or retain more than 23,000 jobs and leverage more than $811 million in additional private investment into Appalachia's economy.

These 12 reasons are a compelling argument for the Congress and the Executive Branch to put in place strong new federal policies in support of climate action. The federal government needs to catch up with the leading U.S. states and other countries around the world to take advantage of the benefits of the low-carbon economy.

The handling of an investigation, by the Chinese Academy of Engineering, could be a test of China's pledges to crack down on research misconduct. The scientist, immunologist Cao Xuetao, is president of Nankai University in Tianjin and has headed and in some cases still heads a number of China's leading biomedical laboratories. The questions first surfaced on PubPeer, the publications review website, on 14 November. Cao posted a response on 17 November, promising to re-examine manuscripts, data, and lab records, and to notify journals if there is any risk to the published record. He also apologized for any oversight on his part.


          

香港の反政府デモによる大学への影響

Protests in Hong Kong over the city's autonomy within China and delays in expected democratic reforms started peacefully in early June, but activists progressively escalated tactics that last week led to pitched battles with police on several university campuses. Aside from extensive destruction at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the site of a prolonged standoff between a small band of holdouts and riot police, universities reported varying degrees of damage to campus infrastructure but that research facilities remained largely intact. Academics are more worried that the images of campuses drenched in Molotov cocktails and tear gas will make it difficult to recruit graduate students and faculty from around the world. There are also concerns about the potential erosion of academic freedoms as China exerts increasing control over the territory.

Deepin, el Linux que acudió al rescate de Huawei cuando no pudo usar Windows y que ahora prepara su propio asistente de voz

Existen muchas distribuciones GNU/Linux enfocadas al usuario medio, aunque no tantas que ofrezcan lo que éste, acostumbrado a la facilidad de uso de los últimos Windows o a la refinada estética de los Mac, exige. Pero entre las pocas elegidas de esta breve lista encabezada por Ubuntu, en los últimos años ha empezado a destacar una pequeña distribución 'made in China' llamada Deepin.

Su ascenso se inició, irónicamente, cuando en 2015 dejó de estar basada en Ubuntu para pasar a estarlo, como esta última, en Debian, mejorando en el proceso el rendimiento y la experiencia de usuario. Si sumamos a eso su escritorio, posiblemente uno de los más bonitos del mundillo linuxero (desarrollado específicamente para esta distribución y llamado igual que ella) y su sencillo proceso de instalación, se explica el crecimiento exponencial de su base de usuarios.

Colaboración con Huawei y viejas acusaciones de 'spyware'

Pero ha sido este 2019 el año en que ha empezado a estar en boca de muchos que nunca se habrían preocupado de una pequeña distribución Linux, aunque en gran parte ha sido por un hecho ajeno a sus capacidades como sistema operativo: cuando la guerra comercial entre EE.UU. y China afectó de lleno a Huawei, limitando su acceso al software estadounidense, todos los ojos se volvieron hacia su departamento de smartphones y las repercusiones que eso tendría sobre su uso de Android.

Pero Huawei también es fabricante de portátiles, y ante la imposibilidad de acceder a licencias de Microsoft Windows, el pasado mes de septiembre las unidades de su gama Matebook salieron al mercado equipadas con Linux. Concretamente con la última versión de Deepin:

Huawei Linux 3

Ahora, en una entrevista realizada en Forbes esta misma semana a dos altos cargos de Wuhan Deepin Technology, la compañía desarrolladora de Deepin. Su responsable de desarrollo (Hualet Wang) y su director de tecnología (Raphael Zhang) han aprovechado para hablar de las repercusiones de esta colaboración con Huawei, y del futuro cercano de su distribución.

"Huawei es un socio de Deepin [...] y estamos colaborando estrechamente. [...] Estamos desarrollando sistemas operativos para dispositivos Huawei".

Ante la pregunta de que si eso supondrá que veremos más dispositivos Huawei con Deepin pre-instalado, la respuesta de Raphael Zhang se limita a "Es un secreto y no puedo decir nada todavía ;)". Oficialmente, los planes de Huawei pasaban por migrar sus portátiles y tablets a su propio sistema operativo HarmonyOS, aún en proceso de desarrollo, a lo largo de 2020.

Sin embargo, su vinculación con Huawei (acusada por el gobierno estadounidense de espionaje en favor del gobierno chino) ha reavivado viejas polémicas en torno a Wuhan Deepin Technology y su distribución. Tal como plantea Forbes, "parece que Deepin no puede escapar de las acusaciones de ser 'espía', y que genera un poco de desconfianza entre la gente debido a sus orígenes chinos".

A comienzos de 2018, un desarrollador anónimo afirmó, desde su página de GitHub, que la tienda de aplicaciones de Deepin 15.5 contenía un spyware que estaría realizando conexiones no cifradas con el rastreador chino CNZZ. Deepin aclaró al poco tiempo que el backend de su centro de software es una aplicación web y que CNZZ (básicamente, un equivalente chino de Google Analytics) sólo recogía datos referentes a la navegación, que se usaban con fines de mejora del servicio, como ocurre en cualquier web empresarial.

Sin embargo, las acusaciones de ser un 'software espía' han ido retornando periódicamente desde entonces, y su reciente vinculación a Huawei no ha ayudado, precisamente.

"Vamos a tratar de hacer nuestro software tan 'open source' como sea posible [...] pero algunos de nuestros programas tendrán que seguir siendo de código privativo, como los drivers de Nvidia y algunos programas populares de terceros".

"Animaremos a la gente a participar en el proceso de desarrollo de Deepin. Sobre los pocos que se nieguen a ver los hechos, tendremos que dejarles estar".

¿Qué novedades aportarán las próximas versiones de Deepin?

La comunidad global de usuarios de Deepin podrá experimentar en los próximos meses dos nuevas funcionalidades que marcarán la diferencia entre su distribución y otros 'sabores' de Linux.

Por un lado está Deepin Cloud Sync, un servicio que permite sincronizar autómaticamente toda clase de ajustes del sistema con la nube: desde la configuración del Wi-Fi o el ratón, a los ajustes de las actualizaciones, el tema y el fondo de escritorio, etc. Esta característica ya está disponible para los usurios chinos de Deepin, pero desde la compañía señalan que quieren hacerlo disponible a nivel internacional.

"Vamos a experimentar primero aquí en China antes de ponerlo disponible a una audiencia más amplia. También necesitamos tiempo para estudiar las leyes sobre privacidad de los diferentes países. No hemos decidido aún si estaría disponible sin [una cuenta] Deepin ID".

Por otro lado, una de las grandes novedades de la próxima versión (la 20) es que saldrá al mercado con su propio asistente de voz dotado de inteligencia artificial, al estilo de Cortana en Windows o de Siri en MacOS.

Lo sabemos exclusivamente por un vídeo íntegramente en chino difundido en el grupo Telegram de Deepin, en el que se muestra a un usuario preguntando a su sistema operativo y recibiendo respuestas tanto mediante texto (en una ventana emergente) como mediante voz. Pero este nuevo asistente (aún sin nombre, que sepamos) no se limita a solventar dudas con cierta solvencia: también abre páginas web o pantallas de configuración del sistema a petición del usuario, incluso parece redactar e-mails al dictado.

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}

Leaked Documents Confirm China's Massive Communist Re-education Concentration Camps

 Cache   

Hundreds of leaked documents are providing evidence that confirms China's communist government is repressing Muslims and other religious minorities on a massive scale.

It's happening in Xinjiang Province in western China where authorities have imprisoned an estimated 1 million people in detention camps.

Beijing claims the camps are for voluntary job training. But the leaked cache of classified documents shows their true purpose is to re-educate and re-train people to obey China's communist system.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters, "Our best analysis that the number of a million is a reasonable number to think about the number of persons that have been over the extended period of time held or detained or wrongfully denied their fundamental human rights."

The leaked documents also show that China is using high-tech surveillance methods to monitor and target people for arrest. They're even being used to predict who would commit a crime in the future.

WATCH: Rick Perry Told Trump He Is the 'Chosen One' Like King David

 Cache   

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says he told U.S. President Donald Trump that he is "the chosen one," like kings David, Saul and Solomon.

In August, while discussing a trade war with China, Trump said, "Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one." His comments received significant backlash at the time from both believers and nonbelievers. Following this controversy, Perry told Fox & Friends he affirmed to Trump that he is "the chosen one."

"God's used imperfect people all throughout history," Perry says. "King David wasn't perfect. Saul wasn't perfect. Solomon wasn't perfect. I actually gave the president a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago, and I shared it with him. I said, 'Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one,' and I said, 'You were.' If you're a believing Christian, you understand God's plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government."

The video later clarifies that Perry also believes Barack Obama was sent by God as well.

Following the clip, Fox and Friends Host Pete Hegseth added, "God has used imperfect people forever, because we're all imperfect, but what he has withstood is unlike what really any other mortal could understand."


          

The Real Reason Rome Persecuted the Early Church

 Cache   

Glenn Packiam, associate senior pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, says the early church was persecuted by Rome not because Rome was anti-religion, but because the church represented an existential threat to society as a whole. In a sermon video clip, Packiam posits the church as a community is one of the few forces capable of "undoing" society as we know it.

Packiam begins the video by describing his process of becoming an American citizen in 2009 and how much he loves the country's principles. But he notes that America—for all of its uniqueness as a nation—is not the "most revolutionary community in human history." That distinction goes to the church.

"How is the church the most revolutionary community in human history?" Packiam asks. "It's because of what the church did. Prior to Christianity, human societies organized by families. Ancestry. They organized by geography and region: 'This is our corner of the land.' They organized by ethnicity. They were organized by certain patterns of living: 'There are the nomadics, these are the settlers.' But when the church arrived, it was revolutionary in the ancient world because it began to transcend other ways of defining communal identity. It was absolutely stunning."

He says Romans of the time struggled to understand this new Christian community—and we know this because we have access to their letters.

"Last year I read a book that compiled the opinions of the Romans as they wrote letters to one another trying to figure out who these Christians were," Packiam says. "... They're looking at this new community and scratching their heads and saying, 'How do men and women eat together and it [doesn't] turn into an orgy?' Literally, they were writing letters saying surely something scandalous is going on. And [the believers] were like, 'No, it's not, actually. Because we know how to treat one another with respect.' That was revolutionary. They said, 'How is it that in these gatherings there are masters and slaves that worship together as equals, that pray together as equals before God, as if Jesus is the only master over all? How is it that that can happen? How is it that rich and poor can gather in the same household at the same table? Who are these people?'"

It was too much for Roman society to handle, as Packiam explains it.

"We tend to think that Rome persecuted Christians because Rome was a secular state," Packiam says. "We sort of imagine it like the Communist Soviet Union or Communist China. We're like, 'Oh, Rome was sort of like that. They were anti-religion.' That was the exact opposite of the truth. Rome was pro-religion. They wanted all religions, all gods, all forms of worship. They wanted all the idols except for one name: the name of Jesus. Why? Because the name of Jesus was the only name that threatened to undo society as they knew it. Every other idol left the status quo. Every other idol let you keep your prejudices. ... But one name came to disrupt it all: the name of Jesus."

Un gol clamoroso di Zurlo a tempo quasi scaduto regala la semifinale mondiale all’Italia. Un quarto di finale a dir poco pazzesco quello andato in scena a Los Pynandi World Cup Stadium di Asuncion, in cui gli azzurri hanno messo ko la Svizzera 5-4 rimontando un passivo di 3-1. Una partita vietata ai deboli di cuore: con un Gori in ombra (con un rigore sbagliato) e fermato da un infortunio, a risolvere la partita è stata la tripletta di uno straordinario Emmanuele Zurlo (clicca qui per vedere tutti i gol della partita). Per lui sono 112 i gol in maglia azzurra, otto in questa competizione (vicecapocannoniere). Da sottolineare anche la prova del viareggino Dario Ramacciotti, al primo gol in questo mondiale e decisivo nella vittoria dell’Italia di Del Duca. Alla Svizzera non è bastato un grande Ott, onnipresente e autore di una doppietta. In ombra anche l'altro atteso bomber, l'ex vicecapocannoniere Dejan Stankovic, a secco di gol e sprecone in divesre occasioni. Nel monento peggiore, l'Italia ha dimostrato ancora una volta di avere tanto carattere e un cuore immenso. Prosegue così il sogno degli azzurri: venerdì (30 novembre) alle 20,15 l’Italia si giocherà l'accesso alla finale contro la Russia, che ha clamorosamente eliminato i campioni in carica del Brasile. Da valutare Gori: il suo rientro al top della forma sarà fondamentale. 
78208080 724598188063394 2819637207961174016 oLa cronaca della partita. L’Italia (in maglia bianca come nell’ultima partita contro il Messico) parte con il solito quintetto formato da Del Mestre, Chiavaro, Gentilin, Ramacciotti e Gori. La Svizzera di Schirinzi risponde con Eliott, Borer, Spaccarotella, Stankovic e Ott. Parte forte la Svizzera, con il tiro di Borer che sfiora il palo. Al 3’ il primo squillo dell’Italia: il tiro di Chiavaro arriva sui piedi di Ramacciotti, che sotto porta non riesce a deviare in rete. La Svizzera mantiene il possesso palla, soffrono gli azzurri. Al 4’ si sblocca la partita: Spacca cambia gioco per Ott, che al volo mette la palla all’angolino lontano per il gol del vantaggio degli svizzeri. Gran gol del Messi del beach soccer. Gli azzurri non ci stanno: al 6’ la punizione di Palmacci viene deviata in angolo da un bell’intervento di Eliott. Al minuto numero 7 Stankovic spreca il gol dl 2-0 calciando debole e centrale da buonissima posizione. Gol sbagliato, gol subito: passano pochi istanti e Gentilin fa impazzire gli azzurri firmando il gol del pareggio. Gol pesantissimo per il Talentin classe 2000, che ha scelto il momento migliore per segnare il suo primo gol in un mondiale. L’inerzia passa dalla parte degli azzurri: all’8’ Gabriele Gori cade in area a seguito di un contatto con Ott. L’arbitro non ha dubbi: è calcio di rigore. Dal dischetto Tin Tin spedisce clamorosamente alle stelle: si resta sull’1-1. Al 10’ la Svizzera passa in vantaggio con un gol fotocopia dell’1-0: Borer cambia gioco per Ott, che al volo centra l’incrocio per un altro gran gol che vale il 2-1. Si va all’intervallo con gli uomini di Schirinzi in vantaggio: male gli azzurri, che hanno sofferto lo schema degli elvetici e un Gori poco brillante. Parte meglio la Svizzera nel secondo periodo: Del Mestre salva la porta azzurra sulle conclusioni di Stankovic e Borer. Al 3’ Gori si divora il 2-2 tutto solo a tu per tu contro Eliott. Noel Ott letteralmente dominante, decisivo in tutte e due le parti del terreno di gioco. All’8’ il capitano Mo segna il gol pesantissimo del 3-1 74403652 724648204725059 49777021693198336 ocon una meravigliosa girata volante. Piove sul bagnato: all’8’ Gori è costretto ad uscire dolorante in barella. A 3' dallo scadere Stankovic grazia gli azzurri calciando fuori una rovesciata ravvicinata. A 26 secondi dal termine Zurlo riapre la partita con un gol mostruoso in rovesciata: l’Italia gioca male ma non molla mai. A 8 secondi dal termine Corosiniti sfiora il pareggio. Segnali di vita per la squadra di Del Duca: si va al secondo intervallo con la Svizzera in vantaggio 3-2. Il terzo tempo si apre con il primo squillo di Marinai: la rovesciata del viareggino termina fuori. A trovare il gol del pareggio azzurro è l’altro fenomeno viareggino, Dario Ramacciotti: il numero 7 agguanta il 3-3 con un tiro che trova impreparato Eliott. Ramacciotti show: passano pochi istanti e il viareggino colpisce una traversa clamorosa. Dario so è preso in mano l’Italia priva del marziano Gori. Si infiamma la partita, con azioni pericolose da una parte e dall’altra. Senza Gori, ci pensa bomber Emmanuele Zurlo: l’attaccante del Catania trova un clamoroso gol del vantaggio in rovesciata. L’urlo di gioia azzurro dura pochissimo: dalla battuta al centro arriva l’immediato gol del pareggio svizzero con Borer. Brutta botta per l’Italbeach, che subisce un gol ingenuo con la barriera che si è aperta sul tiro avversario (ennesima rete subita in questo modo nell'annata degli azzurri). La partita sembra stregata: Zurlo serve al centro Ramacciotti, che in spaccata colpisce una traversa clamorosa da due passi. Al 10’ del terzo tempo, dopo il colpo subito, rientra Gabriele Gori con i tifosi dell'Italia che tirano un sospiro di sollievo. A 1 minuto dal termine la punizione di Marinai termina a lato di un nulla. Finale di partita indeminticabile. A tempo praticamente scaduto, dopo il brivido sulla conclusione di Eliott, Emmanuele Zurlo raccoglie l’assist di Del Mestre e insacca in spaccata il gol del clamoroso 5-4. Delirio azzurro, con Del Duca che esplode di gioia dalla panchina insieme a tutta la squadra. L’Italia vola in semifinale grazie ad una strepitosa tripletta di Zurlo. È la quarta volta in assoluto che l’Italia conquista una semifinale nella massima competizione del globo dopo quelle del 2017, 2015 e 2008, e lo fa nel modo più bello. Beffata la Svizzera, che vede sfumare l'impresa sul più bello. Grande gioia per il ct: “Per la prima metà della gara ho preferito giocare con un 2-1-1 per bloccare la profondità della Svizzera sempre molto brava nel palleggio grazie anche al portiere – ha dichiarato a fine partita il Ct Emiliano Del Duca -. Ho concesso qualcosa sugli esterni, ma quando ho visto che erano stanchi ho chiesto ai ragazzi di ruotare con più intensità e abbiamo ripreso la partita. Il resto l’ha fatto il grande cuore di questi uomini, la voglia di vincere di un gruppo che ha un’anima e lo sta dimostrando sulla sabbia”. Dopo la meritata festa, la testa andrà alla semifinale di venerdì con la Russia. La partita sarà trasmessa in diretta su Sky Sport1, Sky Collection e RaiSport Hd. L'Italia adesso ci deve credere: con la favorita Brasile eliminata proprio dalla doppietta del russo Romanov, gli azzurri adesso non devono temere nessuno. Con la Russia sarà un derby europeo difficile, ma l'Italbeach ha dimostrato che può arrivare fino in fondo e alzare una storica coppa.

Una grande Italia spazza via la paura e conquista il pass per i quarti di finali dei mondiali grazie alla vittoria per 6-2 sul Messico. A Los Pynandi World Cup Stadium di Asuncion gli azzurri vengono letteralmente trascinati dal fenomeno con la maglia numero 10: Gabriele Gori. Tin Tin spazza via il Messico con un’altra cinquina sotto i 36 gradi del Paraguay. Gori is on fire: quello del viareggino è il miglior inizio di sempre in un mondiale. Con la bellezza di 13 gol in sole 3 partite (attuale capocannoniere), il numero 10 migliora il suo score dello scorso mondiale alle Bahamas (concluso con 17 gol e il titolo di capocannoniere) in cui segnò 11 reti nella fase a gironi. Un marziano ad Asuncion: 38esimo gol in un mondiale per Gori, 172 gol nel solo 2019, 289 in nazionale (80 nel 2019) e 721 all-time. Il Messico porta bene all'Italbeach: anche nel 2017 gli azzurri chiusero il girone vincendo 8-1 contro i messicani, eliminati anche alle Bahamas con 0 punti. Terza vittoria del 2019 per l'Italia sul Messico. Le due nazionali, infatti, si erano già affrontate due volte in questa stagione, con gli azzurri che sono usciti vincitori da entrambe le gare: la prima 5-3 nel girone dei World Beach Games, la seconda 3-2 nell’Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup per il settimo posto (9 novembre). Adesso la vittoria più importante per strappare il pass e continuare il sogno mondiale. Con un Gori così sognare in grande è d’obbligo: adesso testa ai quarti di finale contro la Svizzera.

L’Italia (in maglia bianca come contro l’Uruguay) parte con il solito quintetto formato da Del Mestre, Chiavaro, Gentilin, Ramacciotti e Gori. Il Messico di Raya risponde con Macias, Hernandez, Portilla, Maldonado e Villa. Pronti-via e subito primo brivido per gli azzurri: dopo 1’ di gioco Del Mestre compie una gran parata sulla girata di testa di Villa. Gli azzurri rispondono con la rovesciata di Gabriele Gori: la conclusione del numero 10 termina a lato. Dopo una fase di confusione, Gabriele Gori tutto solo non sbaglia in rovesciata per il gol del vantaggio dell’Italia. Gol importante per gli azzurri, che si tolgono di dosso la pressione di inizio match. Al 4’ gran giocata di Zurlo che si libera in area e va al tiro: sul più bello il portiere messicano Macias compie un miracolo ed evita il 2-0. Al 7’ Del Mestre sfiora il raddoppio con una gran botta da lontano che esce di un soffio. Il 2-0 arriva 3 minuti dopo: Ramacciotti ruba palla e serve bomber Gori in contropiede che di sinistro non perdona la difesa messicana. La prima frazione di gioco termina con il risultato di 2-0 per l’Italbeach. Buoni i primi 12 minuti della squadra di Del Duca, avanti grazie alla doppietta di un inarrestabile Gabriele Gori. Il secondo periodo si apre con un gol fantascientifico di Gabriele Gori: il numero 10 insacca in rete su assist di Del Mestre con una rovesciata defilata che finisce all’incrocio.

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

CO2 Stripper Postmortem Thoughts

 Cache   
Published on November 30, 2019 9:20 PM UTC

[EDIT: A crucial consideration was pointed out in the comments. For all the designs I've looked at, it's cheaper to just get a heat exchanger and ventilation fans, and blow the air outside/pull it inside and eat the extra heating costs/throw on an extra layer of clothing, than it is to buy a CO2 stripper. There's still an application niche for poorly ventilated rooms without windows, but that describes a lot fewer occasions than my previous dreams of commercial use.]


So, I have finally completed building a CO2 stripper that removes CO2 from the air to (hopefully) improve cognition in environments with high CO2 levels. In California, the weather is pretty good so it's easy to just crack a window at any point during the year, but other areas get quite cold during the winter or quite warm during summer and it's infeasible to open a window unless you want to spend an awful lot of money on heating or cooling bills. It didn't work quite as well as the math indicated at first, but the whole thing is built, and basically functional. The rest of this post will be a reflection on the lessons learned while doing so.


1: In hardware, ideas are cheap, execution is expensive

So, the fundamental idea is extremely simple once you have some basic knowledge of chemistry. The goal is to get CO2 into some form that isn't the gas form, via some sort of chemical reaction.

Submarines and CO2 capture from flue gas use a reversible reaction with ethanolamines, where they absorb CO2 at high temperatures and release it at low temperatures. Reversible reactions are good for making waste, but heating up and cooling down large quantities of liquid takes an awful lot of energy. Submarines have nuclear reactors onboard, and flue gas is hot, but we don't necessarily have the energy required. Also ethanolamines are toxic and hard to get a hold of for a civilian and really stinky, being the major component of "submarine smell".

Adsorption onto zeolites is also plausible, but the issue is that it requires alternately exposing the zeolites to high air pressure and low air pressure, and high airflow is required. The combination of high pressure and high airflow means that again, you're using a lot of energy. The basic math is as follows: One human produces about 1 kg of CO2 in 24 hours. We can idealize a perfect CO2 stripper as a magic box that inhales air and spits it out at 0 ppm. If you want a steady-state concentration of 500 ppm for 2 people, then we can see how much air-flow is required to lock up 2 kg of CO2 in 24 hours. This comes out to about 100 cubic feet per minute. This is the bare minimum air flow for any CO2 stripper, but in this particular case, it corresponds to a 25 horsepower air compressor, which is 18 kilowatts. This is equivalent to running 5 electric dryers at once. So that one is out too, especially since we were assuming 100% efficiency at eliminating CO2.

What about irreversible reactions? Just lock the CO2 up as a solid waste? Well, to begin with, this is going to produce quite a waste stream, and consume quite a bit of chemicals, you'd better hope it's safe and that the feed chemical is cheap. The reaction used on space missions used lithium hydroxide. The basic idea is that lithium hydroxide makes a very basic solution. Carbon dioxide is slightly acidic, so it dissolves very fast into basic solutions. Then you get precipitation of lithium carbonate which is safe.

The problem is that lithium hydroxide is quite expensive. It was used on space missions because it's the most mass-efficient way of doing that sort of reaction and every gram counts in space missions, but we want the cheapest way of doing that reaction.

And then we hit upon the perfect solution. Calcium hydroxide. It's an extremely cheap bulk chemical, 15 bucks for a 50-pound sack of it at a hardware store. It's fairly mild as far as hydroxides go, being pH 12.4. So instead of giving you horrible chemical burns, it's safe to handle unless you're exposed to it for over an hour at a time without washing it off. It's the alkaline analogue of the difference between 1 M hydrochloric acid, and lemon juice. And when it reacts with CO2, it makes CaCO3, aka limestone, which is totally harmless. In fact, it's a common laboratory demonstration that breathing onto a solution of this stuff produces a white film/crust on the top, which is the CO2 in the breath locked up as solid limestone. It's the obvious choice if you're trying to remove CO2 via chemical means.

And in fact, in the SSC comment section, someone else independently had the exact same idea! Just lock up CO2 with calcium hydroxide!

The simplicity of an idea in the field of atoms instead of bits doesn't necessarily mean that anyone on earth has ever done it before, though, or will ever do it, and I'm not worried about anyone scooping the idea, because building novel hardware is hard enough to provide a natural barrier to entry unless it's a large company that's interested in the idea. Ideas are cheap, execution is expensive, in both time and money.

2: Only polymaths need apply

If you're trying to build a novel machine in your garage, and aren't working as part of an engineering team, you will either need an improbably wide range of knowledge, or the general ability to pick up whatever you need to learn. There's the basic knowledge of chemistry to spot that this is the obvious reaction to go for, but the full design requires:

Familiarity with wastewater aerators to know what to buy to prevent clogging with solids, knowledge on which materials won't react with your chemicals, the math of air flow in pipes, the ability to read fan pressure/airflow curves, the ability to go from "I want a circuit that does this" to building a novel electronic circuit on a breadboard without frying anything important, enough programming knowledge to write some basic arduino code, familiarity with hazardous waste disposal regulations in your state, familiarity with waste dewatering techniques, familiarity with which sort of pumps can pump sludge instead of pure water, some electrical engineering knowledge to work safely with 220V power without frying yourself or anyone else, knowledge of soundproofing, and especially the familiarity with everything at Home Depot that lets you home in on the most efficient and foolproof way of building a thing that does what you want. Probably some other stuff too that I consider obvious but others might not.

Now, most of this is pretty easy to pick up given enough starting mental firepower, and the sense of what to google for. Or just having lots of experience with building material things.

Having one of the relevant fields of knowledge manifests itself as knowing ahead of time which approaches will work and which will fail and what solutions past work in the area has already found.

For some of these, missing it will manifest as not knowing that there's an incoming bullet in a particular area, like not knowing that fine bubble aerators will promptly clog if there's lots of particulates in the water, or not suspecting that high air flow rates are incompatible with small pipe (I knew the latter one and it still almost got me until I idly decided to work out airflow velocity in the pipe and realized it was around 200 mph)

3: The planning fallacy is huge here.

So, it wound up costing a lot more than I thought and taking a lot longer than I thought. The mechanism of why the planning fallacy hits so hard here is tied in with the design process. What happens is that you start out with a sketchy outline of all the component parts (like, "I need something that automatically dispenses chemical powder"), and as it becomes time to build a part, you drill down further and further in fleshing out the details until eventually you've drilled down far enough for your design to Actually Work in reality. While you do this, you will inevitably come across parts that are a lot harder to do than you expected, which you were glossing over on the first pass. The shiny black box of "build a chemical dispenser" looks more tractable than "how the fuck do I build a motor mounting plate with my inadequate tools", which you didn't initially suspect you had to do because you weren't thinking at that level of detail. And also as you address the parts that are easy to do, all that is left is the parts that are hard or annoying or time-consuming to do, which can be somewhat demoralizing.

Same sort of thing goes with cost. You start out with "so here's the cost for the big parts and everything else that's left shouldn't cost that much" (black-box warning on "everything else"!), and then you go to Home Depot and pick up a bunch of 4-inch ABS pipe and black glue and all the 90 degree and T pieces you need for the aeration pipes and look at the cost and it's 100 bucks. Home Depot trips add up shockingly fast. There's also all the stuff you buy that you don't eventually end up using because the design evolves as you actually try to build it, like buying gears when you don't actually need gears, and all the stuff you didn't think you had to buy but it turns out that you do need it.

And sometimes you just get hit with some problem you didn't expect at all and now have to fix, like "my fan is making a screaming noise, what do"

4. Why is there a valley of death?

Universities and the government funds basic research. Then there's the private sector of business. The gap between the two, where you have to go from basic research to a business selling the new exciting thing is called the "valley of death". Now, you'd think this is what R&D is for. But a lot of R&D from a business seems to be focused on marginal improvements to existing things that already fall under the scope of what the existing business does, and not so much on building a novel thing that can be the seed of a new business. Building a novel thing requires a wide knowledge base, as discussed before, and inevitably takes a lot more money and time than expected. It's the sort of thing done by inventors in a garage as a project of love, not the sort of thing you get paid to do.

Further, crossing the valley of death requires both the technical capacity to build the thing, and the business skills to make a new business from scratch. If you have several people with different skills joined together, it can be bridged, but one flaw of doing it alone is that there are a lot more inventors with the ability to build the thing, than inventors with the ability to build the thing and also the ability or willingness to start a business that sells the thing. I'm in the former category. I can build it, but I hate building it and if I have to build all the machines myself to sell, I'd flatly reject it, and I really don't want to be responsible for running a business selling it, I'd have no idea how to run a business, and it'd eat too much time. My dream is to get a design good enough to sell, patent it, find someone willing to make a business out of it, and just receive a cut of profits without having to be involved in anything more regarding the production or selling of the machines, besides helping out with technical design work. Further, someone with just the business skills won't necessarily have the technical ability to come up with the machine in the first place, let alone build it. And there's also the lemon market problem of businesspeople identifying competent non-scam technical people with a viable design, and technical people finding competent non-scam businesspeople.

There are further issues such as designing the new invention such that it is robust and keeps working for a while (not a property that prototypes generally have), and designing it such that it is easy to build and maintain (also not usually a property associated with garage prototypes).

I've heard that there's a company in the UK that takes garage prototypes and updates the design for robustness, easy constructibility, and cost, which seems like an important part of closing the valley.

5. Building alone vs building as part of a team.

In a certain sense, I was blessed on this project, because I had complete control over the entire design. I had to contend with no meetings, and no unexpected changes to parts of the design that were already locked in, and no team decisions that were dumb and couldn't possibly work. It's the dream for anyone who dislikes group projects in engineering. All failures are attributable to me alone, as well as all successes. Then again, having someone else to work on the project with me definitely would have sped it up and I could rely on their knowledge of things I was ignorant of, relaxing the polymath requirement. Maybe there's an optimal design team size? I guess it'd depend on how parallelizable the work is, as well as how decision-making-quality scales with group size.

6. Final diagnosis and where to go from here.

So, it was over-time and over-budget and didn't work as well as I had hoped, but it does indeed work. Planning fallacy is a huge obstacle here, and I now certainly see why there's a valley of death for this sort of work.

In order to make a version that's practical for domestic use, I'd have to redo the design to be a rain-column design, primarily because it only requires high airflow, instead of the combination of high airflow and high pressure, which requires buying an expensive fan from China and the expensive electronic components which provide the appropriate power to operate the fan. A rain column design could use a much cheaper and simpler fan that operates from a wall outlet.

Further, in order for others interested in CO2 reduction to have one of their own, I'd have to team up with someone who could make a small business in assembling and selling these things, preferably involving someone who is not me building the relevant thing. PM me if interested.

15 lugares de la Tierra con paisajes tan increíbles que parecen de otro planeta

Vacaciones que merecen la pena hay muchas, ya prefieras recorrer ciudades, descubrir nuevas culturas o visitar monumentos. Pero en la Tierra también hay lugares fascinantes cuyos paisajes parecen de otro planeta. La naturaleza es caprichosa y ha creado estas maravillas que nos invitan a coger nuestra mochila, salirnos de las rutas habituales y a marcharnos para hacer un viaje que jamás olvidaremos.

The Wave, en Arizona

El desierto tiene un encanto único. Esta formación rocosa de arenisca tiene unas caprichosas formas que lo hacen parecer una ola. Solamente hay 20 permisos al día para visitarla, porque es la única manera de preservarla tal y como está. Más información: The Wave.

Ayacucho, en Perú

Olvídate de las infinity pools de los hoteles, estas piscinas naturales en Ayacucho demuestran que la naturaleza también sabe hacer joyas de aguas turquesa. Más información: Millpu, Ayacucho.

Montaña Arco Iris, en Perú

Perú tiene muchos otros lugares mágicos, como la montaña de siete colores en Vinicunca, formada por siete estratos de diferentes colores. Sin embargo, es un lugar que está perdiendo su encanto debido a la hordas de turista que van a hacer trekking por la zona. La maldición de ser demasiado instagrameable. Más información: montaña de siete colores.

Uyuni, Bolivia

En bolivia se encuentra un gran lago salado en el que hacer fotografías únicas. Se trata del salar más grande del mundo y fue formado por un lago hace 40.000 años junto a los Andes. Más información: Salar de Uyuni.

Islandia

Esta isla tiene tantos paisajes increíbles que cualquiera de las fotografías que nos invitan a conocerlo nos deja sin palabras: las cascadas, los acantilados, las carreteras que parece que llevan ninguna parte, los géiseres, etc. Más información: Islandia.

Nueva Zelanda

Al igual que Isladia, Nueva Zelanda está repleto de Parques Naturales donde relajarte como nunca contemplando las montañas nevadas. los miniglaciares y los lagos de leche glaciar. Más información: Aoraki/ Mount Cook National Park.

Islas Lofoten, en Noruega

Esta zona que se encuentra por encima del Círculo Polar Ártico tiene un paisaje espectacular, y si además tienes la suerte de disfrutar de las auroras boreales, el resultado es así de increíble. Más información: Lofoten.

Montañas de Zhangjiajie, en China

Aunque parezca un paisaje de Avatar, las montañas de Zhangjiajie tienen forma de torres y existen realmente en China. Se pueden visitar a través de puentes con el suelo de cristal y de caminos al borde del precipicio no aptos para gente con vértigo. Más información: Zhangjiajie.

Montañas Hornocal en Argentina

Estos paisajes tan inmensos y tan maravillosos te hacen sentir realmente insignificante. En la zona de Jujuy podemos encontrar estas montañas de formas sinuosas e increíbles colores. Más información: Welcome Argentina.

Kauai, en Hawaii

Un lugar para visitar desde el mar, los acantilados de la costa Na'Pali han sido el lugar elegido para rodar infinitas películas y series, como Jurassic Park o Perdidos y no nos extraña. Más información: Kauai.

Volcán Bromo, en Indonesia

Entre las nubes surgen la cresta de estos volcanes activos en el Este de Java en Indonesia. Dicen que los amaneceres aquí son inolvidables. Más información: Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.

Lago Moraine en Canadá

Altas montañas, lagos infinitos, bosques extensos... Canadá es destino que maravilla a los amantes de la naturaleza. Ideal para recargar las pilas y huir del estrés. Más información: Moraine Lake en el Parque Nacional Banff.

Sa Pa, en Vietnam

En estas afiladas montañas de Vietnam sí se ve la mano del hombre, aún así, el paisaje es increíblemente hermoso debido a las terrazas en las que se cultiva arroz. Más información: Sa Pa Tourism.

Los doce apóstoles, en Australia

Unas costas escarpadas de grandes acantilados con 12 rocas que se alzan luchando contra las olas como si fueran los doce apóstoles, este paisaje es solo una de las maravillas que Australia tiene que ofrecer al viajero. Más información: Twelve Apostles.

Lanzarote

Si hay un lugar que me ha hecho sentir como si estuviera en otro planeta dentro de nuestras fronteras es Lanzarote. Sus paisajes de lava negra son alucinantes, y más si contrastan con el verde del Charco Verde. Más información: Turismo Lanzarote.

Todos estos lugares tienen algo mágico que nos hacen soñar con otros mundos, pero está más cerca de lo que parece, y unas horas de vuelo podemos llegar hasta ellos.

Sending Smoke Signals: Electronic Cigarettes, The Next Mass Tort

 Cache   
Whether you know them as e-cigarettes, vape pens, or “Juuls,” electronic cigarettes have grabbed the nation’s attention. As research about the short- and long-term health effects of e-cigarettes develop, alleged predatory advertising to youths captured the government’s attention amidst a recent “vaping-related” illness that is dominating the news. Predictably, this is all leading to a launch of lawsuits, and the next mass tort is on the horizon. E-cigarettes, developed for commercial use in China in 2003 and first sold in the United States in 2007, deliver nicotine (and often flavoring) to their users in vapor instead of smoke. Composed of an internal cartridge called a cartomizer (which holds a liquid solution containing varying amounts of nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals) and a vaporizer (which heats the solution), e-cigarettes are activated when its user puffs or inhales the device, at which point the liquid is vaporized. The user then breathes in this vapor, hence the term “vaping.” E-cigarettes are commonly used to inhale nicotine, but are also used to deliver tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and butane hash oils.
          

An Escalating Threat: Hacking By A New Generation Of Nations

 Cache   
As if digital threats from the main U.S. cyberspace adversaries weren’t enough, U.S. officials and researchers are increasingly worried about hacking dangers posed by a slew of other nations including Vietnam, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The fears are upending a half decade during which U.S. cybersecurity worries focused on four main adversaries — Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. And they’re signaling that cyberspace is about to get far more complicated and dangerous. “The threshold for entry to have a cyber program has dropped so low because you don’t need to figure out how to build your own program. You can just buy it as a service and that worries me,” a senior FBI cybersecurity official told reporters during a roundtable discussion. In some cases the nations are developing hacking capabilities in-house, such as in Vietnam, where government-backed hackers are reportedly stealing information from rival governments and companies in key sectors including the auto industry to gain a competitive advantage.

Sports

In a world where content gets more and more important Sports has a special role. Live sports remain an anchor for broadcasters, although we are seeing highlights (especially goals) grow in importance as social content. Axos report on the new players gaining ground, with DAZN doubling subscribers and ESPN+ seems to be doing well too. The Athletic has hoovered up talent in the UK and this interview with the founder is good insight into building modern media brands.

Evidence of the rising value of sports comes from PE firm Silver Lake investing $500m into Man City owners - and the deal was brokered by Talent Agent Ari Emanuel

The logic behind these high valuations is the belief that more viewers will watch the games online and it’s no surprise that UEFA are exploring a move into Champions League streaming. Just as Netflix and Disney have gone DTC, the football model of selling to broadcasters looks to be reaching a ceiling. And the ultimate prize is pay to view games; My Sky subscription is good value in December with 3 Leeds games but big clubs - like Leeds - know they would profit from going direct.

China

I am convinced that Live Selling is going to be huge for DTC. QVC is an amazing business and in China we are seeing this take off - although sometimes there are problems. With discovery for DTC a huge issue, could this be a solution? Is anyone doing this in the UK or US?

Equipa Portugal - Maria Martins segunda classificada no concurso olímpico de omnium

 Cache   

 

 

Maria Martins continua a dar alegrias a Portugal na etapa de Hong Kong, China, da Taça do Mundo de Pista. Depois do terceiro lugar em scratch, ontem, a corredora da Equipa Portugal foi hoje a segunda classificada na disciplina olímpica de omnium, estando cada vez mais perto de qualificar Portugal para os Jogos Tóquio, em 2020.

 

A ribatejana chegou à decisiva corrida por pontos no comando da classificação geral, graças a um concurso de qualidade, materializado no terceiro lugar em scratch e no segundo na corrida tempo e em eliminação. Maria Martins conseguiu um ponto na corrida por pontos e terminou o concurso com 113 pontos, os mesmos da vencedora, a japonesa Yumi Kajihara. A terceira classificada foi a belga Jolien D’Hoore, com 106 pontos.

 

Este resultado deixa Portugal mais perto da qualificação para os Jogos Olímpicos de Tóquio no setor feminino de omnium e coloca Maria Martins no segundo posto da classificação geral da Taça do Mundo nesta importante disciplina olímpica.

 

A participação no setor masculino foi mais acidentada. Iuri Leitão e João Matias formaram equipa em Madison, outra disciplina em que Portugal tem ambições de qualificação para Tóquio. A queda de Iuri Leitão marcou a prestação nacional, com a dupla portuguesa a quedar-se pelo 15.º posto, com três pontos. Foi um resultado que atrasou a Equipa Portugal no ranking de apuramento olímpico.

 

Os alemães Roger Kluge e Thoe Reinhardt venceram, com 52 pontos, mais 14 do que os neozelandeses Tom Sexton e Campbell Stewart, e mais 19 do que os britânicos Mark Stewart e Fred Wright, que completaram o pódio.

 

João Matias competiu também na disciplina de scratch. Foi um dos corredores mais ativos durante a prova de 15 quilómetros. As movimentações em que se envolveu o barcelense não resultaram e o corredor português pagaria, no final, as despesas da ambição, cortando a meta como 22.º classificado. A medalha de ouro foi para o holandês Roy Eefting, que esteve acompanhado no pódio pelo grego Christos Volikakis, segundo, e pelo neozelandês Corbin Strong, terceiro.

 

 


          

Equipa Portugal - Pódio para Maria Martins em Hong Kong

 Cache   

 

A portuguesa Maria Martins foi hoje a terceira classificada na corrida de scratch da etapa da Taça do Mundo de Pista, que decorre em Hong Kong, China, até amanhã. Iuri Leitão foi o décimo classificado no concurso olímpico de omnium.

 

 

Maria Martins começou o dia apurando-se para a final de scratch. Na corrida decisiva, 10 quilómetros resultantes de 40 voltas, a ribatejana foi a terceira classificada. A prova foi dominada pela norueguesa Anita Yvonne Stenberg, que conquistou a medalha de ouro por ser a única a dobrar o pelotão.

 

Na luta pelas restantes posições de pódio, Maria Martins foi apenas batida pela austríaca Verena Eberhardt, que ficou com a medalha de prata, deixando o bronze para a corredor portuguesa.

 

 

Iuri Leitão teve a importante tarefa de somar o maior número possível de pontos na disciplina olímpica de omnium, cumprindo o objetivo, pois o décimo lugar significa que Portugal ganhou posições à esmagadora maioria dos países concorrentes pelas vagas de omnium em Tóquio 2020.

 

O vianense iniciou o concurso com o décimo posto em scratch, sendo 13.º na corrida tempo e 12.º na eliminação. Os 18 pontos somados na corrida por pontos permitiram-lhe terminar a competição com 86, no décimo posto. O neozelandês Campbell Stewart impôs-se, com 142 pontos, seguido pelo alemão Roger Kluge, com 133, e pelo suíço Thery Schir, com 125.

 

Amanhã João Matias irá entrar em ação no apuramento de scratch, às 6h15 e, qualificando-se, corre a final às 11h30. Maria Martins irá defender as cores nacionais na disciplina olímpica de omnium. O concurso começa às 8h00, estendendo-se até cerca das 11h00. Iuri Leitão e João Matias irão fazer dupla em madison, às 9h00.

Comment on Lend Me Your Ears by Gregory M. Bruce

 Cache   
I feel you, Jim. I think back to the night I mentioned to my then Wife that we needed better lighting as I handed her the TV Guide. I was 45 and her response was that the lighting was fine and what I needed was reading glasses. Fifteen years later after the agency I worked for went bust I faced my age with dozens of rejections over a couple of years until it dawned on me that it was not my talent holding me back but my age. The perception is that age drains our ability to think. I was deeply depressed by that thought. Then my Wife passed and it got worse. Until the day a few years ago when I decided to give myself the birthday present of a new bow tie. It was something She used to do for me. Well I was blown away by the price. $120.00 for a bow tie made in China. What the hell! I set out to learn how to sew and make my own bow ties. I learned the history and further discovered that virtually every bow tie sold in America is made in one Provence in China. After finally creating a tie I felt good enough to wear in public I got the surprise of my life when a gentleman stopped me on Fifth Avenue, commented on my tie and asked where he might buy one like it. The concept of Bowsnouveau was born in that moment. Your confession is a reminder that our age, I am now 73, is not a deterrent but a time to pivot.

 Cache   

According to the Municipal Bureau of Human and Social Affairs, the Work Plan for Implementing the New Apprenticeship System in Enterprises in Dalian has been officially issued. The new apprenticeship system of enterprises will be carried out in our city, with the main content of "recruiting workers is enrollment, entering enterprises is enrollment, and joint training of enterprises and schools", to encourage enterprises to carry out large-scale training of skilled personnel and enhance the pertinence and effectiveness of the training of skilled personnel.

According to the Work Plan for Implementing the New Apprenticeship System in Dalian Municipality jointly issued by the Municipal Bureau of Human Resources and Social Security and the Municipal Department of Finance, the apprentices are newly recruited and transferred personnel for skill positions with labor contracts signed with enterprises for more than one year, mainly to train medium and high-level skilled workers who meet the needs of the posts of enterprises, and the training period is 1 to 2 years. During the period of apprenticeship and training, the enterprise shall pay wages in accordance with regulations, and the wages shall not be lower than the minimum wage in the place where the enterprise is located.

The new apprenticeship training in enterprises adopts the training mode of "enterprise-school dual system, work-study integration", and the apprenticeship training in enterprises and technical colleges, vocational colleges, vocational training institutions, enterprise training centers and other educational and training institutions adopts the methods of "enterprise-school dual-qualified apprenticeship" and "work-study alternation" to jointly train apprentices. Upon the expiration of the apprenticeship training period, the apprentice may participate in the appraisal of vocational skills or the examination of graduation, and obtain the corresponding vocational qualification certificate,vocational skill grade certificate, special vocational ability certificate, training qualification certificate or graduation certificate.

Our city provides vocational training subsidy to the enterprises carrying out apprenticeship training according to regulations. If an apprentice obtains a vocational qualification certificate or a vocational skill grade certificate at the expiration of his apprenticeship period, he shall be subsidized according to RMB 5,000 yuan for intermediate workers and RMB 6,000 yuan for senior workers each year; Those who obtain one of the special vocational ability certificates, training qualification certificates and graduation certificates shall be subsidized according to the standard of RMB 4,000 yuan per person per year. The new apprenticeship training subsidy for enterprises shall be paid first and then supplemented. Upon the commitment of the enterprise, each district may advance 30 per cent of the subsidy funds to the enterprise included in the apprenticeship scheme in accordance with the regulations. Upon completion of the training tasks, the remaining subsidy funds shall be allocated in accordance with the principle of "more refunds and less compensation".

Il cammino sinodale verso una Chiesa nazionale tedesca (6): la reazione di Ratzinger

 Cache   

Prima di intervenire nel dibattito sulle basi del cammino sinodale come lo interpretano la DBK e lo ZdK, Benedetto XVI aveva sottolineato le debolezze del cattolicesimo tedesco contemporaneo, e specialmente dello ZdK, in un discorso che ha tenuto davanti al suo comitato generale,  il 24 settembre 2011, in occasione di un viaggio apostolico nel suo paese natale (22-25 settembre 2011).

 

L'incontro con il laicato cattolico tedesco

In questo discorso, che era ancora papa, ha usato come guida l'idea del "viaggio di immersione". Questo concetto significa, per coloro che sono coinvolti nello sviluppo in vari campi, condividere la vita dei poveri, spesso in Africa, Asia o persino in Europa. Questa esperienza fornisce lezioni che sono più difficili da imparare nei paesi sviluppati.

 

Ma, ha continuato il pontefice, se questo programma fosse stato realizzato in Germania, i partecipanti avrebbero potuto certamente ammirare molte cose: «il benessere, l'ordine e l'efficienza»; ma vedrebbero anche molta povertà nell'ordine umano e religioso. Questa povertà è il frutto di un relativismo diffuso, che genera un individualismo esacerbato.

 

L'ex papa, fine conoscitore della realtà cattolica nel suo paese, ha aggiunto con rilevanza: «In Germania, la Chiesa è organizzata in modo eccellente. Ma dietro le strutture si trova anche la forza spirituale che è loro relativa, la forza della fede al Dio vivente? Sinceramente dobbiamo purtroppo dire che esiste un eccesso di struttura rispetto allo Spirito. Aggiungo: la vera crisi della Chiesa nel mondo occidentale è una crisi di fede. Se non otteniamo un vero rinnovamento della fede, tutte le riforme strutturali rimarranno inefficaci».

 

Queste linee descrivono lo ZdK: una macchina imponente - che produce un budget di 2,5 milioni di euro - e un'importante rappresentanza,  grazie alle personalità che lo compongono e ai loro legami con i partiti politici. Ma la fede sembra inesistente, come mostrano le esigenze dello ZdK per partecipare al cammino sinodale (vedi il nostro articolo).

 

La reazione del papa emerito alla crisi degli abusi

L'11 aprile 2019, l'ex papa tedesco ha pubblicato un testo in cui parlava della crisi degli abusi sui minori, che è all'origine della decisione della DBK di avviare il cammino sinodale. L'analisi della genesi di questo evento aiuta a comprendere meglio le motivazioni di Benedetto XVI. Il contenuto di questo testo  deve essere ricordato.

 

Un'identificazione delle cause

Questo documento inizia indagando sulle cause della crisi degli abusi, come il cardinale Joseph Ratzinger è stato in grado di analizzarli come prefetto della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, un posto di osservazione privilegiato. La sua analisi contrasta nettamente con il rapporto MHG commissionato dalla Conferenza episcopale tedesca, nonché con le altre presentazioni che sono state fatte, in particolare in occasione del vertice convocato a Roma da Papa Francesco nel febbraio 2019.

 

La prima causa risiede nel contesto sociale di liberazione dalla morale: «negli anni '60, si è verificato un evento di una grandezza senza precedenti nella storia. Si può dire che in vent'anni, dal 1960 al 1980, le norme della sessualità sono completamente crollate». E ricorda a questo soggetto le rivendicazioni pansessuali e la promozione della pedofilia.

 

Una seconda causa è legata alla rivoluzione della teologia morale e all'insegnamento della Chiesa in materia di moralità. Benedetto XVI scrive: «Fino al Concilio Vaticano II, la teologia morale cattolica si basava in gran parte sulla legge naturale, mentre le Sacre Scritture venivano citate solo come contesto o fondamento. Nella lotta del Concilio per una nuova comprensione della Rivelazione, l'opzione della legge naturale fu largamente abbandonata e fu rivendicata una teologia morale basata interamente sulla Bibbia». Un'ammissione di un certo peso: il Concilio è responsabile dell'abbandono della legge naturale. Da qui le innumerevoli derive del relativismo morale.

 

Una terza causa, infine, è il rifiuto del magistero della Chiesa, che non è più riconosciuto come infallibile in materia di moralità. Questo porta alla convinzione che «la Chiesa non ha e non può avere la propria moralità». Da allora in poi, tutto - o quasi tutto - è possibile.

 

Gli effetti di queste cause: interruzioni catastrofiche

 

Per l'ex papa, le cause che ha messo in luce hanno portato a tre rotture essenziali.

Una rottura nella formazione dei seminari: «Per quanto riguarda il problema della preparazione al ministero sacerdotale nei seminari, c'è in effetti una profonda rottura con la forma precedente di questa preparazione». Questa rottura della formazione ha permesso che, «in diversi seminari, fossero costituiti gruppi omosessuali, che agivano più o meno apertamente e cambiavano in modo significativo il clima dei seminari».

 

Una rottura nel reclutamento di vescovi: in questo clima di collasso morale, Joseph Ratzinger riconosce che l'applicazione del Concilio ha avuto l'effetto di promuovere nella gerarchia dei pastori della Chiesa insufficientemente formati nei loro compiti. Di fatto, «un criterio per la nomina di nuovi vescovi era ora la loro "conciliarità", che potrebbe essere intesa come cose piuttosto diverse tra loro. In molte parti della Chiesa, gli atteggiamenti conciliari sono stati intesi come un atteggiamento critico o negativo nei confronti della tradizione esistente».

 

Una rottura con la legge canonica: è qui che Benedetto XVI affronta direttamente la questione della pedofilia e l'inadeguatezza dei mezzi di repressione previsti dal nuovo Codice di Diritto Canonico, promulgato nel 1983. Questo passaggio è particolarmente istruttivo:  «Il problema della pedofilia (...) è emerso solo nella seconda metà degli anni '80». I vescovi «chiesero aiuto, perché la legge canonica, registrata nel nuovo Codice (1983), non sembrava sufficiente per adottare le misure necessarie».

 

Alla base di questa debolezza, «c'era un problema fondamentale nella percezione del diritto penale. Solo il garantismo era considerato "conciliare". Soprattutto, i diritti degli imputati dovevano essere garantiti, in misura tale da escludere qualsiasi condanna. (...) Il diritto alla difesa a titolo di garanzia è stato esteso a tal punto che le condanne erano quasi impossibili». Questa lesione della giustizia, inserita nella legge e deliberatamente voluta, ha condotto di fatto, come dalla propria causa, la protezione degli autori di abusi.

 

In una terza parte, propone soluzioni.

 

Una diagnosi coraggiosa

Il testo è coraggioso e fornisce alla crisi degli abusi una diagnosi molto migliore rispetto al rapporto MHG. Rimane insufficiente perché si lega più ai sintomi del male che alla loro origine avvelenata: il Concilio Vaticano II e il suo adattamento al mondo. Tuttavia, ha il merito di suggerire tre aspetti raramente menzionati:

 

- La questione degli abusi, anche se non è nuova, è chiaramente aumentata nel periodo postconciliare. Il Concilio è colpevole in due modi: abbattendo le barriere che proteggevano la dottrina e la morale; e provocando lassismo colpevole nel reclutamento, formazione e protezione delle vocazioni sacerdotali e del clero, mentre la società diventava sempre più permissiva.

 

- Lo spirito del Concilio e la riforma del diritto canonico hanno reso più difficile punire i colpevoli infliggendo loro solo sanzioni. Delle leggi esistevano prima, più o meno applicate, ma sono state sostituite da leggi insufficienti che l'autorità stessa doveva eludere.

 

- Gli errori sulla Chiesa, sul suo magistero, sulla sua legge e sulla sua costituzione divina, provocano o consentono tutte le deviazioni che hanno invaso la Chiesa oggi.

 

L'arma diabolica del cammino sinodale

Questi risultati consentono di esprimere un giudizio sulla genesi e sugli obiettivi annunciati del percorso sinodale in Germania.

 

Le sue premesse sono falsate. Volere dimostrare, attraverso il rapporto MGH, che gli abusi sono una costante nella Chiesa e che sono quindi collegati alla struttura stessa del Corpo mistico che è la Chiesa, è un'impostura. Il problema è soprattutto la mancanza di santità nel clero. La Chiesa ha certamente vissuto altri periodi in cui questa santità era gravemente carente. Questi periodi di decadenza del clero terminarono generalmente a favore dei concili riformatori che ristabilirono dottrina, pietà e disciplina, mentre la Provvidenza suscitò santi vescovi e santi sacerdoti per mostrare la via del rinnovamento. Al contrario, lontano dalla primavera della Chiesa annunciata dal Concilio Vaticano II, la crisi del clero è peggiorata come non mai.

 

Il cammino sinodale usa mezzi rivoluzionari. Il triplice potere nella Chiesa risiede nel magistero (insegnamento), nell'ordine (santificazione) e nella giurisdizione (che stabilisce le leggi e giudica i reati). Per volontà divina, come insegna la rivelazione, sono uniti nel vescovo e, nel loro grado massimo, nel Papa. Sono quindi inseparabili, anche se alcuni superiori possono praticare solo l'uno o l'altro. Ecco perché non è per i laici giudicare e decidere in materia di fede e morale.

 

Infine, i suoi obiettivi, come espressi dalla ZdK come condizione della sua partecipazione, sono incompatibili con la fede cattolica. Volere separare il triplo potere o conferire il sacerdozio alle donne è assolutamente impossibile. Pretendere che queste domande siano aperte significa già cadere in errore.

 

Questo "cammino" deriva dall'eresia e porta all'eresia. Dimostra che la Chiesa di Germania è già in scisma e che le piacerebbe avere la prerogativa di restarvi, mentre cerca di dare l'esempio a coloro che sarebbero tentati di seguirla. Resta da vedere cosa farà Francesco, il Pastore supremo, per questi smarriti.

 

Continua ...

La Confederazione episcopale tedesca (DBK) e il Comitato centrale dei cattolici tedeschi (ZdK) inaugureranno un percorso sinodale domenica 1 dicembre 2019. Questa situazione è stata denunciata dall'ex-papa  Benedetto XVI ad aprile.

Why StanChart continues to run with Asia

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 30): These are certainly disquieting times for Asia, not least because of protracted US-China trade tensions, slowing growth in China and prolonged unrest in Hong Kong.

Nevertheless, Bill Winters, chief executive of Standard Chartered Plc (StanChart), which derives over 70% of its profit from the Asia region, remains upbeat. He is buoyed by the fact that the bank is not just more resilient to ride out the gloom, having strengthened its foundations since 2015, but also uniquely positioned to tap identified opportunities.

Scientists Created Fake Rhino Horn. But Should We Use It?

 Cache   

Scientists Created Fake Rhino Horn. But Should We Use It?In Africa, 892 rhinos were poached for their horns in 2018, down from a high of 1,349 killed in 2015. The decline in deaths is encouraging, but conservationists agree that poaching still poses a dire threat to Africa's rhino population, which hovers around 24,500 animals.Now, in the hopes of driving down the value of rhino horn and reducing poaching even more, scientists have created a convincing artificial rhino horn made from horsehair."We're not trying to supplant boots-on-the-ground, vigilant customs officials and protection of rhino habitat," said Fritz Vollrath, a biologist at the University of Oxford and senior author of the study, published in Scientific Reports. "But these measures alone so far have not been sufficient to save the rhino, so what we're doing here is bringing out a really good fake."The product that Vollrath and colleagues at Fudan University in China have produced looks identical to rhino horn under a microscope. It has a similar chemical signature and behaves like rhino horn when cut or shaved. It even smells the same when burned.With such properties, Vollrath believes his artificial horn could be used to covertly flood the market with a cheap, convincing replacement, reducing the demand that leads to rhinos being slaughtered.A number of experts pushed back, however, saying such a product is unnecessary and even dangerous.Some wealthy elites in China and Vietnam continue to give rhino horn as gifts and, in Vietnam, bring it to parties as a hangover preventive. In China, it's also carved into jewelry and ornate cups, and collected for speculation purposes."What we've seen is that most rhino horn is now being used for status symbols," said Olivia Swaak-Goldman, executive director of the Wildlife Justice Commission, a nonprofit organization that investigates wildlife trafficking networks.Status depends on rhino horn's exclusivity, high price and rarity, things that Vollrath believes his artificial horn could undermine.Rhino horn, as Vollrath puts it, is "nothing but a tuft of nose hair stuck together with glue that comes out of the animal's nose glands." He and his colleagues chose horsehair as a basis for their fake rhino horn because horses are a close relative of rhinos. They cleaned and tightly bundled the hair, then bound it together with a mixture of liquefied silk, which stood in for the collagen found in rhino horn, as well as cellulose, which represented the plant material that gets rubbed in as rhinos sharpen their horns.Pembient, a Seattle-based bioengineering company, is exploring the development of 3D-printed rhino horn. Matthew Markus, Pembient's chief executive, said he would be open to testing the new horsehair formula.But his company has also faced pushback from conservationists.Critics say that fake rhino horn risks stimulating demand for real horn and that it would complicate policing. "There's already scarce resources for wildlife crime, and we don't want to make it even more difficult for law enforcement," said Swaak-Goldman, who works with governments and law enforcement agencies.Peter Knights, chief executive of WildAid, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending illegal wildlife trade, added that the market in Vietnam was already flooded with convincing fakes, like water buffalo horn, which accounts for up to 90% of what's sold as rhino horn.Frederick Chen, an economist at Wake Forest University, said that there was more than one way to flood a market, however. "Conservation groups tend to clump different strategies under one roof and have a knee-jerk reaction that they have to reject them all," he said. "But the dangers they point out don't apply to all strategies."Chen agreed that introducing a product marketed as an artificial alternative would risk driving up demand for real rhino horn. But covertly introducing a product that passes as real rhino horn but later reveals itself to have some undesirable defect -- horns that deteriorate after purchase, for example, or horns that, when consumed, trigger a stomachache -- could ultimately undermine demand. "If you introduce quality uncertainty into the market, you are trying to create confusion and essentially destroy the rhino horn market," he said.For now, these ideas remain in the realm of theory, and much of that theory goes against real-world evidence suggesting what might happen if the market was flooded with fake horn, said Solomon Hsiang, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley. Hsiang cautioned, for example, that experiments trying to undermine black markets in elephant ivory by selling legal ivory backfired and ultimately led to increased poaching.Engineering fake rhino horn "seems like an elaborate technological approach that is not without potentially serious risk," Hsiang said, when a much simpler strategy would be to focus on targeted demand reduction.According to Lynn Johnson, founder of Nature Needs More, a nonprofit organization that aims to reduce wildlife demand and supply, demand reduction campaigns should focus on top rhino horn users, who are usually wealthy, elite men.Johnson interviewed 20 such individuals in Vietnam and found that they did not fall for fakes: They take measures to ensure their purchase is genuine, including working with a trusted supply chain and requesting the rhino's tail as proof of provenance.They also told her that they view rhino horn as a luxury product that confers prestige. A 2018 study involving 30 Vietnamese rhino horn buyers found that most no longer believed it could cure cancer, a newfangled use that became popular around a decade ago, but they still sought it out as a symbolic final gesture to comfort terminally ill relatives.Belief in rhino horn's traditional medical properties also seems to be on the decline. A survey of 400 people in Vietnam carried out by WildAid in 2016 revealed that 23% thought rhino horn had medicinal value, down from 69% in 2014.But as long as influential people continue to hold rhino horn in high regard, Johnson says that younger and less successful people will also continue to see it as something desirable. "As soon as people can afford the real thing, they'll buy it," she said.Changing the minds of top users, something Johnson and her colleagues are trying to do, is therefore key to quashing demand, she said."I'm a scientist, but you have to know when science won't help," she said. "Calls for fake rhino horn just shows that there's a lack of understanding about the true commercial nature and consumer desire of current demand."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company



          

蜘蛛丝,不只是强韧!

 Cache   

写在前面:

  这篇文章原本是我2018年投在中国青年报上的科普小文,搬到知乎上重制一下,已经征得报社编辑同意了~另外,如果还有人想转载,可以私信商量,请不要不宣而转~如果您看完觉得有趣,就请您点个赞吧,谢谢您啦~~~


  在僻静的小路上踱步,在雨后的公园中慢跑,窗口远眺,家中小憩,每当空气中开始凝结诗意的气息时,宁静常常被一个令许多人毛骨悚然的小东西——蜘蛛打破。除了蜘蛛本身毛茸茸的外表、千奇百怪的颜色之外,黏黏的蜘蛛网也让人感到不适。还记得孩提时班级大扫除,大家总是会请班里个子最高的同学操起一把鸡毛掸子,“重点照顾”墙角沾满灰尘的蜘蛛网……

  蜘蛛丝与蚕丝相似,都是由蛋白质组成的动物纤维。然而,它们又有所不同,蚕吐丝是为了结茧,以便日后破茧化蝶;而蜘蛛吐丝则是为了织网捕食,维持生计。不同的用途依赖于它们不同的性质。蚕丝柔顺光滑,透气性和吸湿性都不错,因此蚕宝宝用它们做成了外壳,充当自己的家,而我国先民们也早早发现了这种神奇的材料,并创出蚕桑缫丝这一行当,做出了各种丝绸织物而扬名天下。而蜘蛛丝既有磐石的坚固,又有蒲苇的柔韧,由其织成的蜘蛛网不仅不畏风雨,而且就算高速飞行的小虫撞击通常也不会使其破裂,因此,兼具高强度和高韧性的蜘蛛丝堪称“生物钢材”,在军工、建筑等领域大展身手,用于制作防弹衣和各类军用装备的防护罩。[1][2]

蛛丝——防弹衣。图片来源中时电子报https://www.chinatimes.com/cn/realtimenews/20180808003935-260417?chdtv

  这些不同的性质又取决于它们不同的结构与形状。蚕丝纤维表面光滑、粗细均匀,其直径一般在二三十微米;而蜘蛛丝则分为曳丝和黏丝两类[3],它们粗细与蚕丝相近,但曳丝表面相对光滑且具有极强大的力学强度,而黏丝表面则布满了蓬松的泡芙状微米结构,这些结构像是被压扁的棉花糖一样由许许多多更细的亲水蛋白纤维组成,因此具有更强的韧性和黏性。除了曳丝强大的力学性能,蜘蛛丝还有许多其他奥秘等待人们探索发现。[4]

蚕丝表面光滑,粗细均匀
蜘蛛黏丝及其表面蓬松的泡芙状微米结构,放大后能看到泡芙内杂乱无章的蛋白纤维

  夏季雨后抑或仲秋时节的清晨,蜘蛛网上常会凝结许多小水珠,犹如一根根银丝串起了一颗颗大珠小珠,迎着日光显得颇为可爱。那么这些小水珠在蜘蛛丝上的排列有什么规律吗?答案是有的。在棉花糖上洒水,细如毫毛的糖纤维会溶解在水中,逐渐凝聚成为糖浆液滴,液滴越来越大,棉花糖也会被腐蚀出一个个孔洞,最终雪白蓬松的棉花糖会坍缩成一小团糖块。与之相似,蜘蛛丝上这些微米级棉花糖状结构遇水也会逐渐收缩成为纺锤状凸起,这些小纺锤便是驱动水珠定向移动的推手。[4]

微米泡芙逐渐吸水垮塌,形成纺锤状,水滴会汇集到纺锤上

  这一现象其实在生活中非常普遍,当我们在针尖或仙人掌的刺尖喷水时,小水滴通常不会乖乖待在针嘴尖的位置,而是会快速跑到锥形针头的底部,而蜘蛛丝上的小纺锤无非是两个圆锥底对底贴在一起的形状罢了。[5][6]之所以会出现这种现象,源于水,或者说液体,倾向于以表面积最小的形态存在,也即是我们常看到的在水滴落的过程中常呈现出的球形或其他类似形状。回到我们的纺锤结构上,当水珠凝结或粘黏在两端时,水滴需要敞开胸怀拥抱着才能稳定存在,这必然增大了水与蜘蛛丝的接触面积,但在纺锤的中部,同样体积的水滴就可以收成一团或减小拥抱的幅度。当然,纺锤两端与中间的表面粗糙度也不尽相同,如此一来,前后便有了能量差,便推动了水滴的移动。仿照蜘蛛丝的结构,可以做出与之功能相同的仿生材料,这种能定向收集水珠的仿生蛛丝可以用于潮湿狭小空间除湿或者干旱地区集水,效法其原理还可以实现定向收集油滴、液体中定向收集气泡,等等。

  液滴在蜘蛛丝上的艺术还不止于此。

  日常生活中,我们常常受困于胡乱缠绕的鞋带、毛线团、耳机线等,似乎全世界的死结都在不经意间打在了你周围这些线状的物体上,而蜘蛛丝则不会受困于此。在较高相对湿度的环境下,蜘蛛丝表面会凝结出许许多多的小水珠,这一点前面我们已经说过了。其实,这些看似多余的小东西还是收纳线团的法宝。在拉伸蜘蛛丝时,它会像橡皮筋一样被拉得又细又长,而其表面凝结的小水珠也会分裂成一个个更小的水珠;在压缩蜘蛛丝时,它并不像绳子或者橡皮筋那样耷拉下来,而是展现出了超强的收纳能力——绝大多数水珠汇聚成为一个大水珠,而多余出来的蜘蛛丝都被这个大水珠包了进去,虽然无序,但又不会互相缠绕打结,原本强韧的蜘蛛丝仿佛一团液体一样自然地融合在了一起。同样,换用其他高分子材料(如聚氨酯塑料纤维、聚乳酸塑料纤维等)来仿制蜘蛛丝,再用硅油或酒精的液滴来代替原本蜘蛛丝上的小水珠,也可以观察到这种拉伸时如同橡皮筋而压缩时如同液体的现象。虽说这种液滴与纤维组成的复合体系并不能帮大家打理鞋带或者耳机线,不过却可以用在工业上,为各类闲置的纤维状物品找一个安置之处。[7]

水珠会帮助蛛丝拉伸、收缩
蜘蛛丝+水珠=不打结的耳机线 1https://www.zhihu.com/video/1178501331022749696蜘蛛丝+水珠=不打结的耳机线 2https://www.zhihu.com/video/1178503494495051776没水有水蛛丝的区别如此之大https://www.zhihu.com/video/1178503554578452480

  行走蜘蛛丝上的艺术远不止这些,自然界中的奥秘更是数不胜数。不过,只要拥有一颗勇于探索的心和一双善于发现的眼睛,发现下一个秘密的人可能就是你呀!

为什么银杏和水杉被称为活化石?

 Cache   

说下银杏~

近日,网上出现了一组名为“银杏爆炸”的照片,主角是西安市长安区罗汉洞村终南山古观音禅寺内的千年银杏树,大概长这样:

这棵银杏树据传为李世民亲手栽种,有一千四百多年历史。银杏不仅生命力顽强,还是我们所熟知的“活化石”:它已经在地球上存在了数亿年。

什么原因使得银杏树能够寿命这么长?又是什么原因是的银杏这一物种能够称为“活化石”?让我们从银杏的历史中去寻找这些问题的答案。

出道即巅峰的裸子植物

“我已经很老了,老到记不得很多事情。”

说起地球上现存最古老的大型植物,很可能就是银杏了。

传统意义上,生物分类学里上一共有七个分类单元,从大到小依次是界-门-纲-目-科-属-种。世界上有数以百万计的物种,通常来说每个物种都或多或少地有一些亲缘关系比较接近的物种在同一单元。

但银杏绝对是个异类。

银杏门下只有1纲——银杏纲;该纲之下只有1目——银杏目;银杏目下也只有1科1属1种——银杏(Gingko biloba L.)。也就是说,现代的银杏没有任何现存于世的亲属物种。因为它所有的亲属都在两亿七千万年以来的无数场浩劫里,消失在地球舞台上了。

距今约三亿年前的二叠纪世界 ,大气二氧化碳含量比前工业时代高3倍,平均温度也因此比现在的地球高一些。大陆漂移使得地球上的大陆聚合在了一起,导致陆地内部变得更加干旱。因此,生殖过程离不开水的蕨类植物逐渐失去了优越性,取而代之的是更加耐旱的新贵——裸子植物。

所以,银杏的祖上是“阔”过的。

化石证据表明,银杏的足迹曾经遍布全球,是真正的地球之子。人们也从化石里找到了当年它很多的亲缘物种,证明当时的银杏家族是优势物种。

可惜,盛极必衰的规律总是在地球上一次又一次上演。

命途多舛的求生史

2.7亿年前,地球生物圈开始经历一场名为“二叠纪-三叠纪大灭绝”的历史事件。

虽然这场大灭绝的起因仍然众说纷纭,但其结果的惨烈是有目共睹的:化石记录表明,绝大多数海洋生物在这场浩劫中消失(包括可爱的三叶虫),陆生动物也被摧毁将近一半,地面上的植物也纷纷死亡,人们甚至发现这一地质时期根本没有形成煤层。

距今1.4亿年前,自然的新宠——被子植物突然出现,开始吞噬裸子植物的生存空间。它们更复杂、更多变、更能融入与自然的相互作用中,而且发明了“一年生”这种近似耍赖的生活史,只在温暖的夏季开花结果,然后以种子的方式度过寒冷的冬天。

在这场无声的植物战争中,裸子植物全面溃败,银杏门下的所有物种除了银杏之外全部消失。

距今6500万年前的白垩纪-第三纪灭绝事件不但使恐龙团灭,更是差点荡平陆地上的高大树木,而不幸的是,裸子植物基本都是高大的树木。

在这一连串的打击下,裸子植物只剩下四个大类得以存在至今,分别是今天的主角银杏、浑身是刺的松柏、傲娇不开花的苏铁和偷偷模仿被子植物的买麻藤。【注1】

如果你熟悉这些植物,你肯定可以立即说出这四类植物的共同特点:活得长。

松柏长青就不说了,人们常用“铁树开花”形容千年一遇也不说了;买麻藤中最具典型的长寿物种当数撒哈拉沙漠里的百岁兰,这种树一生只长两片叶子,平均寿命在一千年以上。而世界上最长寿的银杏据信是山东莒县的一棵,已有三千多年的历史,相传是周公所植。

散布在中国大地上的寿命数百上千年的银杏树比比皆是。

松柏类植物演化出了独特的抗寒特性,而将寒温带变成了自己的主场;苏铁类干脆躲在亚热带的温暖气候里不出来;买麻藤类则是向被子植物偷学了一些特性,有点叛变的意味。

可是,银杏是如何在自己的近亲全部灭绝的情况下还能活到现在,人们此前其实一直没搞懂。

信息丰富的银杏基因组

银杏的唯一原产地是中国,因此揭开这一秘密的重任自然就落在我国科学家的肩上。2016年,我国科学家解码了银杏的基因组,给我们带来了很多线索。

首先,银杏有着一个较大的基因组,里面含有的信息非常丰富。

科学家发现,银杏的基因组经过了两次加倍事件其中的一次在很多植物之中都有发现,但后面的一次却是银杏独有的。想要演化出新的、能够抗逆的基因,必须有基因作为进化的材料;而这些加倍事件为银杏提供了丰富的进化原材料。有人会问,直接在原来的基因上进行进化不也是可以的吗?是可以没错,但是我们知道,基因的改变往往是灾难性的,也就是说变坏的可能性要远高于变好的可能性。如果能将自身的基因加倍,那么就算其中一部分变坏,也会有相应的副本发挥正常功能,相当于免除了变坏之后的惩罚。

因此,银杏通过全基因组加倍事件获得了足够的进化材料。

正因为如此,银杏演化出了大量的有用基因。科学家从银杏基因组中找到了四万八千多个基因。相比之下,人类的基因只有两万个左右。基因多,可以应对的变化就会增加。而且每个基因都是潜力股,都有可能演变为新的基因,为银杏的进化带来变数。

此外,在银杏基因组中发现了大量的LTR-RT。LTR-RT的全名是长末端重复反转录转座子(好了不要吐槽这个名字了),它们是基因组里的小精灵,可以通过复制自身的方法在基因组里到处乱窜而且越变越多。很多物种的基因组里都有它们的身影,但是在银杏的基因组里,它们的数量非常惊人。它们并不会破坏基因组,反而会通过自身的随机移动而给基因组带来变数。只要有变数,物种就有可能变成任何样子,从而增加自己活下去的可能性。

此外,银杏基因组中有非常多关于疾病和害虫的抗性基因。这些基因大多数都是重复的,从而使得银杏具有防御各种病虫害的能力。

这样看来,凭借着基因的灵活多变,银杏躲过了各种灭绝事件,也挺过了数次冰川期。

不但如此,银杏还创造了另一项世界纪录:在1945年广岛原子弹爆炸中,爆炸中心数公里内的生物大部分遭到毁灭,可是其中的6株银杏却奇迹般地存活下来,并且现在仍然枝繁叶茂。【注2】

写到这里,笔者不禁又一次忍不住感叹适者生命的伟大。一种数亿年前诞生的植物,在自然界的千锤百炼之下,生命力竟然是如此顽强,而这顽强的生命力,源自银杏基因组的高度重复和多变性——这是使其存活至今的重要原因。

但却不是唯一的原因。

幸运的相遇

大约在500万年前,银杏在北美洲灭绝。

大约在260万年前,银杏在欧洲灭绝。

从260万年前开始,地球陆续经历了多次冰河时期,银杏的栖息地被逐渐压缩。

后来,银杏仅能生存在中国南方一些气候比较温暖湿润的山林里。虽然活了数亿年,但是留给银杏的时间已经不多了。

直到它们遇上了人类。

银杏高大挺拔,树形优美。叶子形态独特,非常漂亮。银杏果也是一种食物。而且银杏树抗病能力强又不需要什么苛刻的种植条件,所以成为了人类的栽培作物之一。

被人类驯化之后,银杏才真正地躲过了灭绝的命运。我们的先民将它栽种到全国各地,又在近代被重新引入到欧美乃至全世界。虽然科学家们认为野生的银杏种群很可能存在,但是目前为止人们找到的银杏基本全是人工栽培的结果。

因此,如果不是命中注定和人类相遇,那么银杏是不是早已灭绝了呢?虽然没有定论,但是按照现有科学证据来看,非常可能。【注3】

这便是自然界适者生存的另一面——幸者生存的魔力。

幸者生存论的主要观点是:随机事件在生物进化过程中是很常见的,而且在很多物种的进化过程中起重要作用。例如在银杏的例子中,如果它不是在快要灭绝的时候被人类种植,那么肯定会灭绝了。

另一个例子就是我们的国宝大熊猫:大熊猫体色对比明显(没有保护色),对食物的利用率低(吃肉的肠胃却要消化竹子),体型不方便移动(发现异性的概率低),确实不适应环境。要不是在其天然栖息地里,温度适宜(食物丰富),缺乏天敌,早就要被自然淘汰了。但它们真的交上了好运,被人类发现并且最终保护了起来。幸上加幸的是,熊猫还碰巧是一种可爱的动物,因此成了我国的文明名片,全世界的人们都喜欢上了这种萌物。只要人类不灭绝,熊猫是不可能灭绝的了。【注4】

适者生存和幸者生存到底谁的作用更大呢?到底是“天才就是99%的努力和1%的幸运”的适者生存占主导地位,还是“玄不救非,氪不改命”的幸者生存掌控大局?

这个问题科学家们仍然争论不休。毕竟相对于整个自然历史来说,人类的存在时间还太短,不足以观察到足够多的进化事件。但无论结果为何,我们都应该感谢自然界为我们留下了银杏和大熊猫这两件美丽的国宝。


注释:

注1:在不同分类系统下,裸子植物的分类未能统一。按照最新版本的APG IV分类法,裸子植物门取消,其下以前与松柏纲并列的红豆杉纲被降为红豆杉目并移入松柏纲下。但在我国植物学传统上,仍倾向于认为现存裸子植物分为5纲:松柏纲、银杏纲、买麻藤纲、苏铁纲和红豆杉纲。

注2:有上百株其它植物也在广岛核爆之后幸存了下来。

注3:事实上直到现在,国际自然保护联盟仍然将银杏列为濒危物种。

注4:有化石和人类遗址证据表明,我国的早期人类曾经大量猎杀大熊猫,其皮毛和肉都对人类有很大价值。这可能是大熊猫数量急剧减少的主要原因。

当卫星通信遇见5G:技术与趋势

 Cache   

卫星通信是否与我们个人很遥远?5G的可能应用场景有哪些?卫星通信和5G会怎样相遇?它们的遇见会给我们带来什么?和大家交流一下。

首先第一个方面卫星通信与我们个人距离远吗?提到卫星和卫星通信,我们很自然想到的是什么?我想可能是这几个关键词:高远,专业,昂贵。

“高远”既有物理上、时空上的感受,又有心理上、情感上的陌生;“专业”意味着我们日常工作生活中难有机会触碰那些呆头呆脑的终端与冰冷复杂的信道设备,是“少数人”的专属;“昂贵”的设备与通信成本则进一步加剧了我们的距离感。所以,“看不见、摸不着、很复杂、玩不起”这种直观感性,让我们觉得,日常生活距离卫星和卫星通信是如此遥远。

我们从狭义的通信概念出发,确实如此。但如果从广义的通信概念来说,卫星通信与当前我们每个人的日常息息相关:常见且容易理解的,包括电视广播节目,气象服务,导航定位与位置服务等;不直接见到但是作为背后体系支撑的,包括(1)行业卫星通信银行、证券、期货、石油、水利、电力、煤炭、气象、海关、铁路、交通、航天、民航、新闻、计委、地震局、烟草和卫生等各部门都建有专用通信网),(2)地面公共通信网的远距离干线传输,偏远地区无光缆传输、无基站覆盖情况下的移动通信、家庭宽带服务等。所以,从这个角度看,如果没有卫星通信,或者没有我们独立自主的卫星通信体系,那么难以想象今天我们所见到的这生机勃勃、多姿多彩的世界将会多么黯淡,我们的生活成本将会有多高企,更不用说有任何便利性。

润物细无声。卫星通信现在已经融入了我们的方方面面,只是不同的视角,看到了不同图景。星空近在咫尺,始终如影随形。

第二个方面,5G的可能应用场景有哪些。5G是当下非常火的话题,也是今天我们在此相遇的缘由。但这个话题不是我擅长的领域,也难有结论性、断言性的表述,毕竟预测总有偏差,而现实总会出人意料。

我们不妨再参考设备制造商和移动运营商的视角,共同展望一下5G的可能应用场景。基于ITU对5G三大基础场景的定义【(1) eMBB(Enhance Mobile Broadband),增强型移动宽带。核心:Gbps级的传输速率,满足高清视频、AR/VR等大带宽需求。(2) uRLLC(Ultra Reliable & Low LatencyCommunication),低时延、高可靠通信。核心:1ms的空口间时延,满足车联网、无人驾驶、远程医疗等低时延、高可靠需求。(3) mMTC(Massive Machine Type Communication),海量物联网连接。核心:100万个/平方公里的连接密度,满足物联网、智慧城市等海量接入需求】,华为在《5G时代十大应用场景白皮书》中指出,云VR/AR,车联网、智能制造、智慧能源、无线医疗、无线家庭娱乐、联网无人机、社交网络、个人AI辅助、智慧城市是5G时代的应用场景。

中国移动的“5G+”规划中,特别强调“5G+AICED”,即5G作为基础接入方式,同AI、IoT、云计算、边缘计算和大数据,产生深度融合,进而与社会形态、生态的方方面面进行全方位融合。

所以,总结一下,5G对4G的提升,让无线通信不再局限于手机通讯和网络连接,手机反而成为5G应用场景中很小的一部分。

相信有个断言会成立,那就是:5G作为一种通用目的技术将开启万物互联的物联网时代,通用目的技术最显著的两大特征,就是与其它技术的强烈互补性和应用领域的广泛性,这使得5G会渗透至各个行业,将和大数据、云计算、人工智能等一道迎来信息通讯时代的黄金10年。

第三个方面,卫星通信和5G会怎样相遇。这是我想和大家重点探讨的部分。两者一定会相遇,并且是一场美丽的邂逅。要邂逅,就要有共同的话题、互补的特质。以手机为代表的地面移动通信系统现在已经与我们的生活高度融合,成为呼吸一样自然的东西。但地面移动通信系统的覆盖能力,一直是最痛苦的短板;卫星通信的天然优势却是无视地形地貌与距离的广域覆盖,但终端和资费都很昂贵。如果他们邂逅,取长补短,既能实现全时全域无缝覆盖,又能成为大众化通信手段,那将多么美妙。

事实上,卫星通信和地面移动通信在2G时代,就尝试过邂逅与融合,产生了卫星移动通信系统。1989年,国际海事卫星组织(Inmarsat)决定将业务范围从航海和航空卫星通信扩展到陆地卫星通信,并更名为国际移动卫星组织,1994年完成改制,变革为国际商业公司,成为最早的卫星移动通信系统服务商,大名鼎鼎的“海事卫星电话”就是它的服务产品。该公司目前通过4颗固定轨道卫星向全球提供移动通信服务【其固定轨道卫星分别为I-4 F1(25°E 服务于欧洲和非洲,2005年3月发射)、 I-4 F2(143.5°E服务于亚太地区,2005年11月发射)、 I-4 F3(98°W服务于美洲地区,2008年8月发射)、I-4A(Alphasat,2013年7月发射)】,是目前商业运营最成功的卫星移动通信系统。

1997年成立的舒拉亚(Thuraya)公司,通过3颗同步轨道卫星(2000年、2003年、2008年发射)提供区域性卫星移动通信服务,主要覆盖亚太地区、欧洲、非洲、中东,可为140余国家和地区的40亿以上人口提供话音、传真、短信、低速数据接入等服务。除此之外,还有TerreStar、SkyTerra等类似系统。

我国2016年8月发射的天通一号移动通信卫星,是我国自主设计制造的第一颗同步轨道移动通信卫星。2019年3月由中国电信集团卫通公司提供商用服务,提供我国国土和周边海域的话音、短信、传真、视频回传、数据、定位等卫星移动通信服务。截至目前,商业用户数量已突破3万,还在稳步增长中。

Inmarsat、Thuraya和天通是同步轨道卫星移动通信系统的代表。

低轨卫星移动通信系统方面,“铱星系统(Iridium)”是先行者。在摩托罗拉公司如日中天的1998年,推出了雄心勃勃的“铱星”低轨通信卫星星座,由77颗(66+11)低轨通信卫星组网,为用户提供手机式的全球个人移动通信服务。这是一套在技术理念和商业愿景上都非常先进的系统,但当时的现实脚步并未跟上前进灵魂的速度,2000年3月,由于用户收益不足以维持系统运维,“铱星”背负40多亿美元债务正式破产。后来由美军接手,再次复活,目前正在部署的下一代系统(IridiumNext),提供通信、气候变化监视、多光谱对地成像等综合业务。

近几年,低轨互联网卫星移动通信系统突飞猛进,典型的包括O3b、OneWeb(一网)和SpaceX的Starlink星座【知乎号我们的太空:《关于StarLink,我们需要知道的事》],国内的“鸿雁”星座、“虹云”星座,以及中国卫通的“低轨移动宽带互联网卫星星座”。

低轨卫星移动通信系统的共同特征包括:多采用中、低轨道,相比同步轨道卫星可以大幅度降低往返传输时延,使卫星传输的延迟可以与地面光纤相当;采用数量众多的微小卫星组网实现大范围覆盖;通过模块化设计大幅度降低卫星生产周期与成本,从而降低通信资费;多采用Ka/Ku频段,提高系统容量;【O3b的单波束可以提供1.6Gbps的传输速率,每颗星70个波束;OneWeb单星容量5-8Gbps,系统总容量超过7Tbps,可为0.36米口径天线的终端提供50Mbit/s的互联网接入服务,为传统互联网架设成本过于昂贵的地区提供高速宽带互联网接入服务】终端小型化、智能化趋势明显;而且业务类型都聚焦宽带互联网接入服务。这些特征,使得卫星通信系统越来越具备同地面通信系统融合的切入。

5G的万物互联愿景,将为卫星通信和地面移动通信融合提供切入。包括ITU、3GPP在内的标准化组织成立了专门工作组着手研究星地融合的标准化问题。

ITU针对卫星与地面5G融合的问题,提出了星地5G融合的4种应用场景,包括中继到站、小区回传、动中通及混合多播场景,并提出支持这些场景的关键因素,包括多播、智能路由、动态缓存管理及自适应流、延时、一致的服务质量、NFV(NetworkFunction Virtualization,网络功能虚拟化)/SDN(SoftwareDefined Network,软件定义网络)兼容、商业模式的灵活性等。

3GPP从R14开始着手开展星地融合的研究工作。在TS22.261中,对卫星在5G系统中的角色和优势进行了探讨,认为,作为5G多种接入技术之一,卫星在一些要求广域覆盖的工业应用场景中具有显著优势。卫星网络可以在地面5G覆盖的薄弱地区提供低成本的覆盖方案,对于5G网络中的M2M/IoT,以及为高速移动载体上的乘客提供网络服务,借助卫星优越的广播/多播能力,可以为网络边缘网元及用户终端提供广播/多播信息服务。

在2017年底发布的技术报告TS22.822中,3GPP工作组SA1对与卫星相关的接入网协议及架构进行了评估,并计划进一步开展基于5G的接入研究。在这份报告中,定义了在5G中使用卫星接入的三大类用例,分别是连续服务泛在服务扩展服务。并讨论了卫星终端特性的建立、配置与维护,以及在卫星网络与地面网络间的跨协议漫游及通信切换问题。

3GPP在R16中开展名为“面向‘非地面网络’中的5G新空口”研究项目,定义了包括卫星网络在内的非地面网络(NTN:Non-terrestrialnetworks)的部署场景。按照3GPP的定义,5G网络中的NTN应用场景包括8个增强型移动宽带(eMBB)场景和2个大规模机器类通信(mMTC)场景。借助卫星的广域覆盖能力,可以使运营商在地面网络基础设施不发达地区提供5G商用服务,实现5G业务连续性,尤其是在应急通信、海事通信、航空通信及铁路沿线通信等场景中发挥作用。

SaT5G联盟:2017年6月,英国电信、空客防务及航天公司、萨里大学等16家企业与研究机构联合成立了SaT5G(Satelliteand Terrestrial Network for 5G)联盟,计划在30个月内完成卫星与5G的无缝集成方案,并进行试用。整个项目将完成以下5个方面的工作:1)定义和评估将星地5G融合的网络体系结构解决方案;2)研究星地5G融合的商业价值主张;3)定义和开发星地5G融合的相关关键技术;4)对星地5G融合的特性和用例进行演示;5)推进星地5G融合在3GPP和ETSI中的标准化工作。

作为全球范围内5G技术和商用的第一梯队国家,我国在星地5G融合发展中当然有自己的声音与行动。国家队中国卫通公司基于高通量卫星(中星16)成功完成卫星传输5G数据业务的融合测试(2019年11月),利用高通量卫星的便携站与地面5G网络之间搭建卫星基站回程试验系统,实现了基于星地链路的5G基站与核心网之间信息传输,这是卫星与5G网络互联互通实质性的探索。民营企业(世域天基通信等)成立的Sat5G-CHINA标准推动工作组,在中国通信标准化协会和航天标准化协会的联合指导下,结合国际力量(比如欧洲委员会旗下的HORIZON2020计划)积极向ITU/IMT组织协调空间频率共享共同,并创造性提出“共享MEO”的5G低轨卫星星座设计理念,也初步实现了5G毫米波通信试验卫星平台。

就在我们刚刚步入5G元年之际,在学术界和产业界的努力下,卫星通信与5G已经产生了美丽的邂逅,步入融合。

第四个方面,卫星通信和5G的相遇会给我们带来什么。综合各方信息,卫星通信和地面5G移动通信的相遇,一定会给我们带来深度融合的“天地一体化网络”。天地一体化并非新生事物,“铱星”一代就是人类第一次进行天地一体化的尝试。但是“铱星”一代的设想是要彻底取代地面移动通信系统,成为人们移动通信方式的主导,这显然超出了时代的理解和技术基础。当前,人们越来越深刻地认识到,星地系统由竞争走向合作,卫星系统以提供回程服务、基站拉远等方式成为地面移动通信网络的补充,优势互补,合作共赢,这才是邂逅之道。

我国《国家民用空间基础设施 中长期发展规划(2015-2025年)》中明确提出:“坚持天地一体化发展,空间系统与地面系统同步规划、同步研发、同步建设、同步使用,提升系统整体效能。”天地一体化网络背景下,用户能够在任意时间、地点透明地享受来自于地面网络/天基网络的融合服务。[融合服务的维度:覆盖融合、业务融合、体制融合、用户融合、芯片融合、终端融合、应用融合]

卫星通信和地面5G移动通信的相遇,是不是会把我们带入6G时代?虽然5G还未全面铺开,但6G已处于研究启动阶段。即使未来的需求及技术方向仍不明朗,但并不影响各方提前布局。

国内外围绕着6G技术及标准的主导权的争夺已经正式开始。关于6G研究的焦点,有两个观点是各方比较一致的,那就是通信维度的陆海空天全覆盖更大传输带宽所需的更高频段

北京邮电大学吕廷杰教授在《5G与产业互联网》的主题演讲中提出了这样的观点:“移动通信的一代、三代、五代通常都是颠覆性技术的诞生,偶数代通常是对奇数代的优化和完善,并发展出创新业务,是可以改写游戏规则的技术” 。

移动通讯技术到目前为止经历了5代,无一例外都是如此。按照这个观点,6G将会是5G的补充和延伸。补充什么,往哪里去延伸?5G的主要标准阶段,是R15和R16。这之后的R17,事实上就是5G的升级目标了。根据3GPP最新的消息,R17讨论区收集到的议题如下:

NR Light:针对中档NR(新空口)设备(例如可穿戴设备)运作进行优化设计;小数据传输优化;Sidelink增强:sidelink是D2D直联通信采用的技术;52.6GHz以上频率:R15中定义的FR2毫米波频段上限为52.6GHz,R17中将对52.6GHz以上频段的波形进行研究。多SIM卡操作;NR多播/广播;覆盖增强;非陆地网络NR:NR支持卫星通信相关标准化;定位增强;RAN数据收集增强;NB-IoT和eMTC增强;IoT和URLLC增强;MIMO增强;综合接入与回传增强;非授权频谱;NR增强;节能增强。

我们可以看到,大量的“增强”字样,说明是在现有技术上的进一步升级再升级。除了“增强”之外,有2个关键的词汇:非陆地网络NR、52.6GHz以上频率。这与“低轨通信卫星”和“太赫兹频段”有紧密关系。因此我们是否可以断言,卫星通信与5G的相遇,会把我们带入6G时代。

卫星通信与5G的相遇和融合会给我们带来很多机会,也一定伴生诸多挑战。

面对机遇和挑战,作为通信人的我们,应该感到很幸运,我们生在这样一个信息技术突飞猛进的时代,能够参与其中,感受巨变;也一定会有强烈的紧迫感,使命感和危机感,我们能为这个时代贡献什么,贡献多少。还好我们都还年轻,我们大有可为!

Edward Snowden

「新刊『スノーデン 独白』とインタヴューでたどる、世界一有名な告発者の軌跡」の写真・リンク付きの記事はこちら

ALAMY/AFLO

エドワード・スノーデンは、間違いなく世界一有名な告発者だ。しかし、実名を明らかにする前は、数多くの偽名に隠れて生きてきた。

米国家安全保障局(NSA)のトップシークレットをジャーナリストにリークした際に使っていた仮名は、「シチズンフォー(Citizenfour)」「キンキナトゥス(Cincinnatus)」、「ヴェラックス(Verax)」などである。ヴェラックスは、ラテン語で「真実を語る者」を意味する単語だ。これは内部告発サイト「ウィキリークス」創始者、ジュリアン・アサンジが使っていた古いハンドルネーム「Mendax(メンダックス、『ウソを語る者』の意)」をもじっている。

新たに刊行された回想録『スノーデン 独白 消せない記録』で、スノーデンは長く使われていなかったほかのハンドルネームについても触れている。

「シュライク」「コーウィン」「ベルガリオン」。そして早熟な子ども時代、オンライン掲示板でコンピューターチップの互換性に関する素人っぽい質問をするために使っていた「qu33ker」。いずれもオンラインゲームや掲示板用のハンドルネームで、彼がティーンエイジャーだった90年代にTシャツのように手に入れては捨てていったものだ。

彼は気ままに昔のアイデンティティを脱ぎ、別の新しいアイデンティティを身につけることで、過去の失敗やオンラインチャットで試した恥ずかしいアイデアと決別してきた。ときには、その新たな仮名を使って、以前の自分自身を攻撃することさえあった。進歩したいまの自分の立場から、無知な人間だった一週間前の自分を否定するのである。

失われて久しい過去のインターネットは、ネットの住人たちに対して、望めば毎日でも押せる「人生のリセットボタン」を提供していた。いまもそれを懐かしむスノーデンは、『WIRED』US版にこう語る。

「経験の幅を広げること。挑戦と失敗の繰り返しによってバランスのとれた人間になること。こうしたことを通じて、わたしたちは自分が何者であり、何者になりたいのかを知ります。しかし、いまの若い世代はそういうチャンスを奪われています。彼らは、あらゆるネットワークで、有無を言わせず厳密に識別されてしまうからです。以前のわたしたちのように、忘れ去られたり、過ちを許してもらえたりする機会すら与えてもらえないのです」

オンラインは社会であり、教育の場だった

個人主義的で、一過性と匿名性をもつインターネットは、いかに消滅しようとしているのか。それを、スノーデン以上に暴いてきた人物はいない。

だがひょっとすると、そうしたインターネットは常に神話的存在だったのかもしれない(結局、スノーデンのチャットルームのひとつは、彼の悪名が高まったあともオンライン上に残っていた。このチャットルームでスノーデンは、「TheTrueHooha」という名で、拳銃から性生活に関する助言まで幅広い話題について語っていた)。

NSAの元局員や、スノーデンと同世代の人たちにとって、スノーデンが語るインターネットに対する考え方は、ニール・スティーヴンスンの小説や『ハッカー宣言』(どちらもスノーデンが伝染性単核球症を患っていたティーンエイジャー時代の読み物だ)、ジョン・ペリー・バーロウの「サイバースペース独立宣言」(スノーデンはこれを合衆国憲法前文に次いで記憶に留めていると書いていた)で祭り上げられているような創設神話である。

だが、彼が「最も心地よく成功したアナーキー」と呼ぶ90年代のインターネットは、スノーデンにとって社会であり教育の場だった。彼は、のちに妻となる女性ともレーティングサイト「HotOrNot.com」で知り合っている。

そんなデジタル時代が始まる前の世界とその消滅を記録するために、スノーデンは私生活をさらけ出してまで『スノーデン 独白』の執筆にあたったという。彼は本書を通して、世の中の人が以前よりも自分を理解してくれるようになるのではないかと語った。

「自分にとって、この本はただの回想録以上のものです。ひとりの人間としての自分の歴史を綴ると同時に、それはテクノロジー、システム、インターネット、米国の民主主義における時間と変化の歴史を綴ったものなのです」

理想の遊び場を守るため、青年は決断する

回想録は大きく3部にわけられる。諜報の世界に入るまでの人生、諜報コミュニティーでの疾風怒濤の7年間、そして告発者・逃亡者としての体験だ。

意外なことに、最初の約100ページを使って書かれているのは、スノーデンのいちばん「普通」な人生の一部である。極めて知的だが、どちらかというと目立たない高校中退者。だが、ここに書かれていることは決して無駄ではない。

むしろ青年期のあり方を描くことにより、米国家安全保障局(NSA)の仲間を裏切り、同局の秘密を暴露し、自らを追放へと導いた究極の決断の理由が、最もわかりやすく人間味のあるかたちで説明されている。これは、NSAで出世が望めるほど頭脳明晰でありながら、その雇用主とはまったく正反対の、インターネットへの純粋な理想をもつ野心的なギークの話なのである。

一見すると、本書はある人の稀有な体験をつづった伝記というよりも、米国のスノーデン世代の体験談のようにも読める。「9.11」という衝撃的な事件のあと、政府の仕事にしか興味をもたなくなった90年代の極端なオンラインキッズ。特殊部隊に加わろうとするも、基礎訓練中に両足をけがして挫折。その後、諜報コミュニティーに引き寄せられ、その世界で働くうちに、理想の遊び場であるインターネットが正反対のものに変えられていることに気づく。それは、誰にも知られず記録にも残されない、アナーキーへの重大な脅威だ。どんな犠牲を払ってでも、誰かがくい止めるべき脅威なのである。

そして、その「誰か」に自分がなるという決定的な決断以外、スノーデンによって語られる話は、似たような経験をもつ数え切れないほどのギークたちに通じる。

「わたしは平凡な人間です。過去の自分を分析してみて、自分には特筆すべきことがないとわかりました。告発したのが自分でなかったら、別の誰かがしたかもしれません。『告発者のエドワード・スノーデン』になるのは避けられませんでした。人は、誰かが異議を唱えるまで、良心に従って行動できるのです」と、彼は語った。

そんな彼の決断は、現実を変えることになる。2015年に米米国自由法が可決され、全米国人のメタデータをかき集めていた通話履歴収集活動が大幅に制限されたのである。

この通話履歴収集活動は、大量監視に関する告発のなかでも最もわかりやすい例だ。米国議会は現在、メタデータ収集を完全に終了させることも検討している。だが、こうした現実の変化は、米国政府高官たちによる二極化するスノーデンの評価に関しては、なんら影響を及ぼしていない。現に、民主党下院議員のアダム・シフはスノーデンを「告発者」と呼ぶことにすら疑問を呈し、トランプ政権国務長官マイク・ポンペオはスノーデンの処刑を要求している

シスアドは、いつだって最強

スノーデンの名が一躍有名になってからの6年間、世のほとんどの人は、彼が英雄か裏切り者かと議論しつづけている。その一方で、サイバーセキュリティコミュニティに属す多くの人は、スノーデンを単なる目立ちたがり屋の「IT野郎」として切り捨てた。監視にも、彼がのちに暴露することになるハッキング操作にも参加したことのない、単なるシスアド(システム管理者)にすぎないというのがその主張だ。

結論から言うと、半分は当たっている。スノーデンは、マイクロソフトのドキュメント共有システム「SharePoint」の管理や、NSAのデータ脱重複化および共有システム「ハートビート」「EPICSHELTER」の構築を担当していた。それが、彼のキャリアの頂点だったのだ。核施設のウェブサイトにあった比較的単純な脆弱性を10代のころに発見して報告したエピソード以外、ハッカーとしての腕前を証拠づけるものもたいしてない。

ところが、この“IT野郎”が、情報が財産である組織において最も権力をもつ人物のひとりであることがわかる。

スノーデンは世代間の隔たりを理解することでその座についた、若きITエリートのひとりである。CIAのデータセンターで働いていた時期、彼は得意になりながら年上の人々が働くITヘルプデスクの前をわざと通り、彼らがアクセスできない重要な機密情報が眠る区画まで歩いて行ったと書いている。

「ぼくはヘルプデスクの連中より何十歳も若かったし、彼らにはアクセス権がなく、今後も決してアクセスできないようなヴォールトにむかっていたのだ」

次に語られるのは、パイナップル畑の下の、冷戦時代の巨大トンネル内に位置するNSAハワイオフィスでの、最後のポジションについてである。「いまやぼくは情報共有局の唯一の従業員だ──つまりはぼくが情報共有局そのものということだ──だからまさに、どんな共有可能な情報があるかを知るのが仕事だった」

スノーデンはわたしたちと一緒にレジュメに目を通し、「ただのシスアド」という攻撃を笑い飛ばした。「ただのシスアドなんて存在しません。シスアドというのは、いつでもネットワーク全体で最強の人間なんです」

丸裸で生きていくことを強いられてきた

NSAにおけるキャリアの早い段階でスノーデンは、情報網に入り込む権限を利用して、中国の監視とインターネットコントロールに関する防諜活動情報を整理するように命じられた。これが、米国のインターネット監視システムとどの程度似ているのかについて考え始めた瞬間だった。

しかし、彼には「ITシャーマン」とデータ分散のエキスパートというメインの役割があったため、スノーデンは日常的な監視活動にほとんど参加することなく、外部観察者という信念に基づいた姿勢を保っていた。NSAの監視に関して最大限のアクセスをもちながら、他者に追及させないという最小限の共犯性だ。

『スノーデン 独白』では、スノーデンの関心の的と人生を変えた「雇用主(NSA)をデジタルに骨抜きする」という決断の理由が、何か特定の権力濫用ではないことも明らかにされている(ただし、彼は本のなかで、組織内における「LOVEINT」の例を大量に挙げた。LOVEINTとは、スタッフが恋愛や過去の恋人関係に絡んだスパイ活動をすることだ)。

むしろスノーデンは、パノプティコン(全展望型の大量監視システム)になりうるシステムの構築を告発の理由に挙げた。彼はこのシステムを「ターンキー・ティラニー(看守専制)」と呼ぶ。それは、すべての人のすべての事柄を記録するためのあらゆるツールが揃っていて、権力をもつ者の気まぐれで個人の私生活が暴かれるのシステムだ。

それこそ、スノーデンが自らの人生を捧げてまで暴きたかったことである。「システムの構築自体が権力の濫用です。わたしたちは権力を前にして、丸裸で生きていくことを強いられてきたのです」と彼は話す。

トランプ政権下の冷酷な移民政策を強化するために、税関・国境警備局や移民・関税執行局のような組織が、監視の範囲を広げている。このような人権侵害の例は、大規模な変化の兆候にすぎないとスノーデンは言う。「ドナルド・トランプが問題なのではなく、問題がトランプを生み出したのです」

監視がゆるく、匿名であり、無秩序だったインターネット時代に対する彼のノスタルジアは、もちろんネット荒らしや「言論の自由」を求めるオルタナ右翼など、トランプの登場を背景にしたオンライン上の勢力の台頭を説明するものではない。

しかし、「言論の自由」という点に関しては、スノーデンは「合衆国修正憲法第1条」の絶対主義者だ。「言論の自由自体は、自由な社会への入場料です。最悪の人間に対する最高の対応は、相手を恐れることではなく正していくことであり、沈黙ではなく挑戦することです」と彼は言う。

ハワイから香港、そしてモスクワへ

スノーデンの生い立ちや暴露に至る動機はさておき、『スノーデン 独白』の最終章では、リークに至る過程が詳細に述べられている。

デジタルトラックを隠すために、ハワイ周辺で脆弱なWi-FiネットワークにノートPCから侵入した「ウォードライブ」[編註:自動車などで移動しながら無線LANのアクセスポイント(AP)を探す行為]から、ハワイ、香港、モスクワへの逃亡までが語られる。

さらに、これまで過小評価されていた、ウィキリークスのサラ・ハリソンの、スノーデンの支援者としての役割についても新たな記述がなされている。クライマックスは、ロシア連邦保安庁担当官とモスクワ空港で会話する緊張の場面だ。

担当官は最善を尽くし、すみやかに彼をロシアの情報財産として受け入れようと提案する。だがスノーデンは、その話し合いの内容が秘密裏に録音され、意にそぐわないかたちで編集・転用されることを避けるために、担当官の話をさえぎって早々に提案を拒否したという。

スノーデンは、それ以前にロシア情報部と何らかの接触があったかについては、きっぱりと否定している。結局のところ彼は、NSAの機密文書をロシアには1枚も持ち込んでいなかった。

「頭の中の知識だけが、わたしがもっているもののすべてでした。しかも、それをロシア側に差し出す気もなかったんです」と、彼は言う。スノーデンは自分が生きていること自体、つまりロシアから米国ではなく、逆にプーチンのロシアに亡命せざるをえなかった米国人の人権活動家として存在すること自体が、米国にとって屈辱であり、クレムリンはそれだけで満足していると考えている。

人生はいつも、モニターのなかに

スノーデンには、ハワイを離れてから長期間にわたって生き残るための計画がなかった。

告発者となった動機に関する訴訟上の防御権が保障されるなら、裁判所に出頭するために帰国する覚悟があるとも繰り返し述べている。しかし、それはいつでも帰国できるという意味ではない。スノーデンには、スパイ活動法違反の嫌疑がかけられている。最重要の情報をジャーナリストにリークしたことは、外国政府に秘密を売ったことと何ら違いがないとされているのだ。

一方、トランプとプーチンの友好関係から、外交上の「プレゼント」として米国への帰国がありえるともたびたび取り沙汰されている。この可能性についてスノーデンは、どうにもならない運命の要素として自分では考えないようにしている。

スノーデンは、残りの人生をロシアで過ごさなければならないのなら、それでも仕方がないと話す。いまは、モスクワで結婚した妻のリンジィとアパートで暮らしている。ハワイやメリーランドでよく食べていた米国のファストフードも、モスクワで同じように食べられる。報道の自由財団(Freedom of the Press Foundation)の理事も務めている。

現在の彼は、同僚のパソコンのモニターや会議用システムロボットにだけ姿を見せながら、ジャーナリストのためのデジタルセキュリティ改善ツールを構築する計画を牽引しているところだ。

スノーデンが自らを「家猫」と呼ぶように、彼はどこで暮らすことになろうとオンラインの世界の存在として生き続ける。「わたしの人生はいつも、パソコンのモニターを媒介にしています。それをニューヨークやベルリン、モスクワで観ることに、何の違いがあるのでしょうか? どれも同じインターネットなのです」とスノーデンは語った。

フェイスブックがケンブリッジ・アナリティカを巡るスキャンダルに対処していた2018年10月。アップルの最高経営責任者(CEO)のティム・クックはブリュッセルで講演し、自社と競合企業の違いを明確に示そうとした。

クックは「データ産業複合体」のことを激しく非難した。そしてグーグルやフェイスブックといった企業がユーザーから個人情報を収集し、それをユーザーに対する“兵器”として利用していると批判したのだ。

「これは監視なのです」とクックは言った。「わたしたちはこれを非常に不愉快に思うべきであり、不安に感じるべきなのです」

このときの講演の狙いは、ほかの企業がユーザーのデータを利用して利益を得ている反面、積極的に保護してきた企業としてのアップルのシリコンヴァレーにおける“プライヴァシーの守護者”の地位を再確認することにあった。

多くの意味で、その評価は自らの手で築き上げてきたものだ。なにしろアップルは、2015年に発生したサンバーナーディーノ銃乱射事件で、容疑者のひとりが所有していたiPhoneのロック解除のために、FBIから協力を要請されても拒否したほどである。

アップルのデヴァイスの安全性は世界最高レヴェルであり、さらに自社アプリ内でのデータ追跡も積極的に制限してきた。ところが、アップルの中国における最近の動向を見ると、そのプライヴァシー、セキュリティ、人権に対する高い倫理観には限界があることが浮き彫りになっている。同社の倫理観は、必ずしも中国の国境を越えられるとは限らないのだ。

中国でアプリを削除したアップル

アップルは2019年10月初旬、香港民主化のデモ隊が警察の動きを追跡するために使用していたアプリ「HKmap.live」を、「App Store」から削除した。これは中国共産党の機関紙『人民日報』に、同アプリを批判する論説が掲載されたあとのことだった。さらに、ビジネスニュースサイト「Quartz」が香港でのデモ活動を大々的に報道したあとには、中国のApp Storeから同サイトのアプリを削除している。

また時期をほぼ同じくして、アップルは香港とマカオのユーザーのデヴァイスから台湾の旗の絵文字を削除し始めた。中国共産党は「ひとつの中国」という原則に基づき、台湾が正式に中国の一部であると主張している(それ以前は、台湾の旗の絵文字が使えないのは中国本土のみだった)。

アップルは、HKmap.liveを削除した理由を、中国から圧力を受けたからではなく、同アプリが安全上のリスクをもたらしたからだと主張している。「懸念を抱いた香港の多数のお客さまから問い合わせを受け、ただちに調査を開始しました」と、アップルの広報担当者は声明で述べている。

「このアプリは警察のいる位置を表示するもので、警察を標的とした待ち伏せ攻撃を行ったり、公共の安全を脅かしたり、警察がいない地域の住民に犯罪者が危害をもたらしたりするために利用されてきたことを、当社は香港サイバーセキュリティ・テクノロジー犯罪局から確認しました」

番組制作者にも圧力?

ティム・クックはアップルの従業員に向けた社内メッセージのなかで、HKmap.liveが「個々の警察官を暴力の標的にするために悪意をもって利用されていた」と信じるに足る確かな理由があると繰り返し強調した。ところがデモ活動のリーダーや、香港立法会議員でITを専門とする莫乃光(チャールズ・モック)は、同アプリはクラウドソーシングによる情報に依存しており、かつ個々の警察官を特定することはなく、危険性をもたらすと考えるのは合理的でないと異議を唱えた

また有名なアップル評論家のジョン・グルーバーは、クックの書簡について「これほど簡単にぼろが出てくるようなアップルのメモや声明は、これまでなかったと思います」と指摘している。「普段なら実行に移す前に数えきれないほどの評価を重ねる企業であることを考えると、悲しいと同時に驚きでもあります」

さらにニュースサイト「Buzzfeed News」が10月上旬に報じたところによると、アップルは2018年、一部の「Apple TV+」の番組制作者に対して、過去にほかのスタジオがしてきたような中国のネガティヴな描写は避けるようにとの指示を出したという。

「これはつまり、(中国の)検閲が中国の国外の視聴者にまで及んでいるということです」と、非営利国際人権組織ヒューマン・ライツ・ウォッチのリサーチャーとして中国を研究する王亜秋(ワン・ヤーチウ)は言う。「これらの番組は中国国民だけが視聴するものではありません。ですから米国人も懸念すべきなのです」。アップルはBuzzfeedの報道についてコメントしていない。

民主主義的な価値観と利益との板挟みに

これらの決定には、いずれも中国指導部を怒らせることに対するアップルの強い懸念が現れている。「過去数年間、アップルは言論の自由とプライヴァシーの保護の領域で数々の譲歩をしてきました」と王は言う。「譲歩するたびに、中国政府に服従を受け入れる意思があるというメッセージを送っていることになります」

アップルは2018年、中国の国内法に準拠して中国のiCloudアカウントのデータと暗号化キーを中国国内で保存するようになったことから、中国政府にとっては国民の情報が入手しやすくなった。また2017年、アップルは中国のApp Storeから『ニューヨーク・タイムズ』のアプリと、数百に及ぶVPN(仮想プライヴェートネットワーク)アプリを削除している。

これらのアプリは、中国のインターネットの検閲によって遮断されているコンテンツに、中国のユーザーがアクセスすることを可能にするものだった。だが、それは中国では違法とされている。

中国への参入に大きく失敗した米国のほかの巨大テック企業とは異なり、アップルの事業は中国に強く依存している。同社のiPhoneやその他のガジェットの大部分は中国で生産や組立てが行われているほか、2019年6月までの12カ月における中国での同社の売上額は、およそ440億ドル(約4.8兆円)にのぼった。

中国、香港そして台湾を合わせた市場は、同社にとって米国に次いで2番目の規模である。だが、民主化デモ運動が香港で数カ月にわたり続くなか、アップルは自らが表明する民主主義的な価値観と、利益の高い事業とのはざまで板挟み状態にある、数多くの国際的企業のひとつとなっている。

弾圧に利用されていた脆弱性

グーグルもまた、そこに含まれる企業のひとつだ。同社は10月半ば、「Google Play ストア」から香港のデモ運動を支持するモバイルゲーム「The Revolution of Our Times」を削除したことで、社内の従業員から批判を浴びたと報じられた。

また2019年はじめには、長期にわたる従業員からの反発と連邦議員による調査を受け、検閲に対応した中国向け検索エンジンの開発を断念している。だが、たとえアップルの従業員が同じように中国における経営者の行動に異議を唱えたとしても、同社は中国から簡単に手を引くことはできないだろう。アップルにとって中国は必要な存在となっており、そのせいで同社は本質的に厄介な立場に陥っているからだ。

8月にはこんなこともあった。まずグーグルのリサーチャーが驚くべきiPhoneの脆弱性の数々を明らかにした。特定のウェブサイトにアクセスすると、ほぼ即時にそのiPhoneから情報が漏洩するというものだ。

さらに複数のニュースメディアで、この脆弱性を利用した攻撃が中国の少数民族であるウイグル族を標的に用いられていたことが報じられた。現在、100万人以上のウイグル族が西部の新疆ウイグル自治区の収容施設で拘留されている。

アップルがこの脆弱性についてようやく発表した声明では、ウイグル族が標的とされていたことは認めたものの、そのなかで「中国」や「人権」という言葉が用いられることはなかった。また、長年にわたり中国のイスラム教の少数グループや、その他の宗教的・民族的少数グループが、厳しい監視技術に苦められてきたことについて認識を示すこともなかった。

あの中国企業との密接な関係

さらに最近は、セーフブラウジング機能を巡る批判もある。これはユーザーが悪質なウェブサイトにアクセスしている可能性があるときに警告を発する機能で、アップルが自社のウェブブラウザー「Safari」内で10年以上にわたり用いてきたものだ。

世界中のほとんどの場合において、Safariユーザーが利用しているセーフブラウジング機能は、グーグルに依存している。悪質あるいは有害な可能性があると特定されたウェブサイトのリストを管理するのはグーグルだ。

ユーザーが悪質あるいは有害なウェブサイトにアクセスした可能性があるとアップルが判断すると、グーグルのデータベースにそのURLを照会する。そして一致するURLが見つかった場合、アップルは警告を表示するわけだ。

しかし、中国のSafariユーザーが利用するセーフブラウジング機能は、中国政府とつながりをもつ中国のインターネット企業テンセント(騰訊控股)が蓄積したデータベースに依存している。この2社のつながりについては、米国では10月半ばまであまり知られていなかった。

「ある日突然、テンセントの名前が出てきたんです。それが懸念を引き起こしました」と、ジョンズ・ホプキンス大学の暗号研究者マシュー・グリーンは言う。なお、アップルは2017年に中国メディア組織とのパートナーシップを開始した当時、関連する発表を行っている。

グリーンが懸念しているのは、テンセントがセーフブラウジング機能を利用して、中国のiPhoneユーザーが特定のウェブサイトにアクセスしたかどうかを監視することが可能である点だ。これは同社が“悪質URLのリスト”となるものを最終的に管理する立場にあるからである。

中国政府は、すでにほかの手段を用いて国民のデジタル行動を広く監視している。ユーザーが悪質とされるウェブサイトにアクセスした場合、そのユーザーのIPアドレスだけでなく、それに伴う位置情報もテンセントに共有されることをアップルは認めている。アップルの広報担当者は声明のなかで、「アクセスしたウェブサイトのURLそのものが、セーフブラウジング用データのプロヴァイダーに共有されることは決してありません。また、この警告機能をオフにすることも可能です」と述べている。

テック企業が中立性を保つことは、もはや不可能に?

中国の込み入った政治問題は、アップルなどのテック企業だけでなく、中国の消費者の機嫌を伺うあらゆる企業に問題を引き起こしている。10月はじめには、NBAのヒューストン・ロケッツでゼネラルマネージャーを務めるダリル・モーリーが発信した香港のデモ活動を支持するツイートが、強制的に削除させられた。

その後、テンセントと中国国営メディアがNBAプレシーズンマッチのデジタルストリーミングを停止し、モーリーとNBAは謝罪を発表した。またその2日後には、ゲーム会社のアクティヴィジョン・ブリザードが、同様に香港での民主化運動への支持を示したeスポーツのプロ選手で香港出身のBlitzchungこと呉偉聡(ン・ワイチョン)選手を出場停止処分にしている。

だがアップルの場合、単なる広告関係以上の利害が絡んでいる。中国の国民は、生活にかかわるほぼすべてのデータをiPhoneに保存しているからだ。

「テック企業が中立性を保つことは、もはや不可能になっているのです。中立などありません。もはや問題は、『世界最大級の市場でデモ側につくのか、それとも警察や中国政府の側につくのか』ということなのです」と、シンクタンクのニュー・アメリカでサイバーセキュリティ政策および中国のデジタル経済を研究するフェローのサム・サックスは言う。「これはほぼ“Lose-Lose(どちらの側も不利になる)”の状況です」

アップルに関して言えば、中国における自社の存在について「開放性の向上を促進する助けとなり、アイデアや情報の自由な流れを円滑にする」と主張している。これは2017年に、アップルのヴァイスプレジデントで公共政策および政府関連業務を担当するシンシア・ホーガンが、米国上院議員のパトリック・リーヒとテッド・クルーズに宛てた書簡に記した内容だ。

「アップルは特定国の法律に同意できない場合であっても、積極的に関与することによって表現の自由に対する権利を含む基本的権利を促進することができると確信しています」

Opnieuw indrukwekkende jury voor International VELUX Award

 Cache   

De International VELUX Award 2020 moedigt architectuurstudenten van over de hele wereld aan om met daglicht te werken. Het thema van de International VELUX Award 2020 is “Light of Tomorrow”. Zodra de registratieperiode is afgesloten, hebben de studenten(teams) tot 15 juni de tijd om hun project in te dienen in één van de twee categorieën: Daylight in Buildings, dat zich richt op projecten die laten zien hoe daglicht in gebouwen slimmer te benutten is. Of Daylight Investigations, dat zich focust op onderzoek naar cruciale factoren voor de gezondheid en het welzijn van de gebruikers van gebouwen. Denk aan de fysieke eigenschappen van daglicht en nieuwe constructiematerialen.

"We zijn zeer verheugd om onze geweldige jury voor IVA 2020 voor te stellen. Deze internationaal gerenommeerde architecten staan voor belangrijke en baanbrekende architectuur en zijn tegelijkertijd zeer betrokken docenten," zegt programmamanager van de International VELUX Award, Per Arnold Andersen.

De jury:

Odile Decq is een Franse architect en stedenbouwkundige die in 2017 de Architizer's Lifetime Achievement Award heeft ontvangen voor haar baanbrekende werk, maar ook voor haar betrokkenheid en bijdrage aan het debat over architectuur.

Sebastián Adamo uit Argentinië is medeoprichter van het architectenbureau Adamo-Faiden dat sinds 2005 gevestigd is in Buenos Aires. Hun internationale praktijk strekt zich uit tot onderwijs en onderzoek en hun werken worden op grote schaal tentoongesteld in Amerika en Europa.

Nóra Demeter is een architect gevestigd in Hongarije. Samen met Zoboki-Demeter en medewerkers heeft haar enorme internationale expertise haar in staat gesteld om complexe lokale en internationale projecten aan te pakken, zoals het Paleis van de Kunsten in Boedapest.

Juri Troy is een Oostenrijkse architect wiens projecten zich concentreren op duurzaamheid, energie-efficiëntie en holistische bouwconcepten. Daarom speelt het gebruik van hout altijd een belangrijke rol in zijn werk.

Martin Pors Jepsen uit Denemarken, is vicepresident Global Product Management bij VELUX. Hij heeft verschillende functies binnen de VELUX Groep bekleed, waaronder die van General Manager van VELUX China en Global Product Manager voor VELUX Solar.

Persoonlijke projectpresentatie tijdens WAF 2020

De internationale jury komt begin juli bijeen in Kopenhagen om alle ingezonden projecten te beoordelen.

Nederlandse studenten dingen in de twee categorieën mee in de regio West-Europa. De in totaal tien regionale winnaars mogen hun projecten persoonlijk aan de jury en een live publiek presenteren tijdens het World Architecture Festival in november 2020. Op basis van de presentaties selecteert de jury een wereldwijde winnaar voor ieder van de twee categorieën, ‘Daylight in Buildings’ en ‘Daylight Investigations’. Deze wereldwijde winnaars ontvangen ieder € 5.000, wat wordt verdeeld tussen de student(en) en de docent(en).

Inschrijvingen geopend

Inschrijvingen voor de International VELUX Award zijn sinds september geopend.

Sucios

 Cache   

Semana 48. 333/33
Valeriano.

Aunque ningún país está exento de tales dificultades, hay muchos que están inmersos en una crisis ambiental. Así pues, te presentamos los 10 países más sucios que, aunque seleccionados primordialmente por la contaminación del aire, no es el único factor que los ha traído a esta lista “sucia”:

- Nigeria: Uniendo a la mala calidad del aire y los desechos que en este país usualmente se depositan en las calles o vertederos no regulados, el 94% de la población está expuesta a niveles de contaminación que rebasan los parámetros establecidos por la Organización Mundial de Salud Algunos vertederos de este país pueden alcanzar las 2400 toneladas métricas de basura.

- Emiratos Árabes Unidos: La producción de petróleo y gas ha favorecido la contaminación del aire, además se han incrementado los vertederos de desechos y no existen normas que regulen esta situación. Frente a ello, la teocracia árabe del país se propuso la creación de una ciudad completamente limpia, es decir, libre de carbón. La hipotética ciudad tendría el nombre de Masdar, ‘Fuente’.

- Nepal. La suciedad de este país se debe a la contaminación del aire, la producción de petróleo y las insuficientes medidas sanitarias para producir alimentos y realizar la recolección de basura. En el 2015 la ciudad de Katmandú, capital de Nepal, sufrió un violento terremoto que afectó seriamente la infraestructura de la ciudad; derivado de ello, los trabajos de reconstrucción han generado un «coctel» perfecto de contaminantes.

- Kuwait. La industria petrolera y el consumo de dicho producto ha provocado la contaminación del agua, la muerte de diversas especies y altas emisiones de CO2. Hacia 1991 tuvo lugar un suceso que aún se comenta para contextualizar los perjuicios que causa la contaminación. Durante un día entero la ciudad se vio oscurecida por una nube ocre que redujo la visibilidad a menos de 500 metros e hizo bajar la temperatura 15 Cº.

- Mongolia. El uso de carbón en actividades cotidianas ha favorecido la mala calidad del aire, lo que provoca que miles de personas mueran al año debido a enfermedades respiratorias. Según los últimos registros, Mongolia ha aumentado el promedio de su temperatura hasta 2.2 Cº. En Ulán Bator, capital de Mongolia, durante algunos «malos días» el contador de pm 2.5 ha registrado un terrorífico 999, la cifra más elevada que puede consignar este aparato.

- Bahrein. Las industrias más populares del país —gas y petróleo— han elevado los niveles de contaminación del aire y agua, además este país ha desestimado el mantenimiento de áreas verdes y el manejo de residuos. De acuerdo con un estudio de la George Washington University, la incidencia del asma infantil está estrechamente vinculada con la polución ambiental; en Bahrein, la incidencia de ésta entre los menores de edad es de 26%.

- Afganistán. Aquí es común que los residuos -domésticos, industriales y médicos- sean tirados en las calles o en cloacas abiertas, contaminando así el río Kabul, principal proveedor de agua potable. Según el Ministerio de Salud de este país, un promedio de tres mil muertes anuales podrían ser adjudicadas a los altos niveles de contaminación; las enfermedades vinculadas a este fenómeno son principalmente respiratorias y cardiovasculares.

- India. Las grandes plantas industriales no sólo han provocado la mala calidad del aire si no la contaminación del río Ganges, uno de los más sucios en el mundo, pues carece de un sistema eficaz de recolección de basura. La contaminación en este país —considerado el más populoso, después de China— es ya legendaria. Los niveles de polución pueden llegar a producir fenómenos francamente patéticos, como en el caso de los «perros azules» de Gwalior, ciudad de la India. Los perros adquieren esta tonalidad por los residuos químicos que son desechados en el río Kasadi.

- Pakistán. Su aire es uno de los más dañinos para respirar, resultado de la actividad industrial. Además, la mayoría de su población no tiene acceso a agua potable segura o servicios sanitarios. Aquí las muertes atribuidas a la contaminación ascienden a 125 mil anualmente, según el Instituto de Métricas y Evaluación de la Salud de la Fundación Gates.

- Bangladesh. Este país se corona con el aire más tóxico del mundo. Así mismo, en algunas de sus ciudades se ha encontrado que el agua consumida contiene cantidades alarmantes de arsénico, lo cual ha incrementado enfermedades como el cáncer .

DDL di bilancio 2020. Avvio dell’esame al Senato. Norme fiscali di interesse per il settore.

 Cache   

E’ all’esame, in prima lettura, in sede referente, della Commissione Bilancio del Senato, il Disegno di Legge recante “Bilancio di previsione dello Stato per l'anno finanziario 2020 e bilancio pluriennale per il triennio 2020-2022” (DDL 1586/S - Relatori Sen. Rossella Accoto (M5S) e Sen. Dario Stefano (PD).

Il provvedimento contiene le misure necessarie a conseguire gli obiettivi programmatici di finanza pubblica indicati, per il 2020 e per i due anni successivi, nella Nota di aggiornamento al Documento di economia e finanza 2019.

La “sessione di bilancio” si è aperta al Senato con l’assegnazione del provvedimento e lo svolgimento di un ciclo di audizioni preliminari all’esame a cui ha partecipato anche ANCE. In seguito all’acquisizione dei pareri delle altre Commissioni parlamentari la Commissione Bilancio ha, quindi, avviato l’esame, in sede referente, martedì 12 u.s.

Tra le norme fiscali del testo di maggior interesse, in particolare, si evidenziano le seguenti:

  • viene disposta, per il periodo d’imposta successivo a quello in corso al 31 dicembre 2018, la deducibilità dell’IMU relativa agli immobili strumentali nella misura del 50% ai fini della determinazione del reddito di impresa e del reddito derivante dall’esercizio di arte e professioni (art.3);
  • viene messa a regime la riduzione al 10% dell’aliquota della cedolare secca da applicare ai contratti di locazione a canone concordato di immobili ad uso abitativo, ai sensi dell’art. 3 del DLgs 23/2011 (art. 4);
  • vengono prorogate per l’anno 2020 le detrazioni spettanti per le spese sostenute per interventi di efficienza energetica, di ristrutturazione edilizia (65% e 50%) e per l’acquisto di mobili e di grandi elettrodomestici (art.19);
  • vengono prorogati al 2020 il cd. superammortamento, che consente di maggiorare a fini fiscali (del trenta per cento) il costo degli investimenti beni materiali strumentali nuovi e il cd. iperammortamento, che consente di maggiorare ai fini fiscali (dal 50 al 170 per cento a seconda dell’investimento) il costo di acquisizione di beni materiali strumentali nuovi funzionali alla trasformazione tecnologica e/o digitale. Viene, altresì, riconosciuto un credito d’imposta, per gli anni dal 2020 al 2022, alle imprese che realizzano progetti ambientali che includono beni strumentali nuovi, pari al 10 per cento delle spese (art.22);
  • viene prorogato al 2020 l’applicazione della disciplina del credito d’imposta per le spese di formazione del personale dipendente nel settore delle tecnologie previste dal Piano nazionale Industria 4.0 (art.23);
  • viene prorogato al 31 dicembre 2020 il credito d'imposta per l'acquisto di beni strumentali nuovi per i comuni delle regioni Lazio, Umbria, Marche e Abruzzo colpiti dagli eventi sismici succedutisi dal 24 agosto 2016 (art.24);
  • viene introdotto un “bonus facciate” , ovvero viene prevista la detraibilità ai fini IRPEF del 90 per cento delle spese documentate, sostenute nell’anno 2020, relative agli interventi edilizi, ivi inclusi quelli di manutenzione ordinaria, finalizzati al recupero o restauro della facciata degli edifici (art.25);
  • viene previsto un rifinanziamento di 105 milioni di euro per l’anno 2020, di 97 milioni di euro per ciascuno degli anni dal 2021 al 2024 e di 47 milioni di euro per l’anno 2025 della cd. Nuova Sabatini, misura volta alla concessione – alle micro, piccole e medie imprese - di finanziamenti agevolati per investimenti in nuovi macchinari, impianti e attrezzature, compresi i cd. investimenti in beni strumentali “Industria 4.0” e di un contributo statale (30%) in conto impianti rapportato agli interessi calcolati sui finanziamenti stessi.

La maggiorazione del contributo statale per investimenti “Industria 4.0” è del 100% per gli investimenti realizzati dalle micro e piccole imprese nelle regioni Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Molise, Puglia, Sardegna e Sicilia, nel limite complessivo di 60 milioni di euro a valere sulle risorse autorizzate. Una ulteriore riserva pari al 25% delle risorse autorizzate è destinata alle micro, piccole e medie imprese a fronte dell’acquisto, anche mediante leasing finanziario, di macchinari, impianti e attrezzature nuovi di fabbrica ad uso produttivo, a basso impatto ambientale (art.26);

  • viene ripristinata l'applicazione del trattamento fiscale agevolato istituito dall’articolo 1 del DL n. 201/2011, denominato aiuto alla crescita economica (ACE), che spetta alle imprese il cui capitale proprio viene incrementato mediante conferimenti in denaro e accantonamenti di utili a riserva (art.30);
  • vengono stanziati 3 miliardi di euro per gli anni 2021 e 2022 per l'attribuzione di rimborsi in denaro a favore di soggetti che fanno uso di strumenti di pagamento elettronici. Le modalità attuative saranno stabilite con apposito decreto del Ministero dell'Economia, sentito il Garante per la protezione dei dati personali, entro il 30 aprile 2020 (art.31);
  • viene disposto che la funzione di Presidente del Comitato di indirizzo delle Zone Economiche Speciali (ZES), sia regionali che interregionali, sia attribuita ad un Commissario straordinario del Governo. Viene, inoltre, esteso ai beni acquisiti entro il 31 dicembre 2022, il credito d’imposta concesso per gli investimenti nelle ZES (art.36);
  • viene modificato l’art.15 del DPR 917/1986-TUIR con l’introduzione, a decorrere dal periodo di imposta 2020, di una soglia di reddito oltre la quale le detrazioni Irpef relative a oneri di spesa, riconosciute nella misura del 19% si azzera con gradualità.

Nello specifico, la suddetta detrazione spetta:

  1. a) al 100%, qualora il reddito complessivo non ecceda 120.000 euro;
  1. b) per la parte corrispondente al rapporto tra l’importo di 240.000 euro, diminuito del reddito complessivo, e 120.000 euro, qualora il reddito complessivo sia superiore a 120.000 euro.

Il reddito complessivo è assunto al netto del reddito dell’unità immobiliare adibita ad abitazione principale e di quello delle relative pertinenze.

Per gli oneri relativi a interessi passivi e oneri accessori relativi a mutui contratti per l’acquisto e per la costruzione dell’abitazione principale, la detrazione compete nell’intero importo a prescindere dall’ammontare del reddito complessivo.

Viene previsto, inoltre, che, per fruire delle detrazioni IRPEF pari al 19% gli oneri devono essere pagati con versamento bancario o postale, oltre al bonifico bancario o postale, oppure attraverso carte di debito, di credito e prepagate, assegni bancari e circolari (artt. 75 e 85);

  • viene prorogata la facoltà di rideterminare i valori delle partecipazioni in società non quotate e dei terreni sia agricoli sia edificabili, posseduti da privati non esercenti attività commerciale alla data del 1° gennaio 2020, sulla base di una perizia giurata di stima e a condizione che il valore così rideterminato sia assoggettato a un'imposta sostitutiva pari all’11% dell’intero valore rivalutato delle aree. Tale imposta sostitutiva deve essere versata (o la prima rata nel caso di pagamento rateale) entro il 30 giugno 2020 (art. 89);
  • viene prevista, a decorrere dal 2020, l’abolizione dell'imposta unica comunale (IUC), ad eccezione della tassa sui rifiuti (TARI), e viene ridisciplinata l’imposta municipale propria (IMU). Il presupposto dell’imposta è il possesso di immobili, ad eccezione del possesso dell’abitazione principale o assimilata.

Fino al 2021, l’aliquota di base per i fabbricati costruiti e destinati dall'impresa costruttrice alla vendita (c.d. beni merce) è pari allo 0,1%. I comuni possono aumentarla fino allo 0,25% o diminuirla fino all’azzeramento. A decorrere dal 1° gennaio 2022, i predetti fabbricati costruiti e destinati dall’impresa costruttrice alla vendita sono esenti dall’IMU.

L’aliquota di base è fissata allo 0,86% e i comuni, a decorrere dall’anno 2021, possono diversificare le aliquote esclusivamente nell’ambito di una griglia individuata con decreto del MEF(art. 95);

  • viene introdotta una riforma della riscossione degli enti locali. In particolare, viene disposto che tutte le somme a qualsiasi titolo riscosse appartenenti agli enti locali affluiscano direttamente alla tesoreria dell’ente; viene introdotto, anche per gli enti locali l’istituto dell’accertamento esecutivo che consente di emettere un unico atto di accertamento avente i requisiti del titolo esecutivo; viene prevista la gratuità delle trascrizioni, iscrizioni e cancellazioni di pignoramenti e ipoteche richiesti dal soggetto che ha emesso l'ingiunzione o l’atto esecutivo (art. 96).

Nel fare riserva di mantenerVi informati sull’iter di approvazione del DDL in questione, cogliamo l’occasione per porgere i migliori saluti.


          

焦点分析 | 摩拜状告滴滴,一把锁至于吗?

 Cache   

摩拜急了。

北京知产法院官网消息,近日,北京知识产权法院受理了北京摩拜科技有限公司诉北京小桔科技有限公司、杭州青奇科技有限公司侵害发明专利权纠纷案件。

原告摩拜公司主张其为“一种锁”的专利权人,该发明专利于2015年12月6日申请,于2018年9月11日予以授权公告。摩拜公司称,两家被告在滴滴APP上提供的青桔单车和小蓝单车使用了受到“一种锁”专利保护的马蹄形锁具,要求赔偿200万元侵权损失。

图片来源:中国专利审查信息查询网

目前,法院已经采取证据保全措施,依法查封、扣押了在北京市运营的带有被诉侵权的马蹄形锁具的青桔单车、小蓝单车。

大环境垮塌,昔日领先者的一举一动都令人玩味。因为一个零部件的相似把同行告上法庭的行为,看上去像是小题大做。然而,智能锁这东西,并非普通零部件那么简单。

双寡头时代的路线之争

摩拜单车对于自己的智能锁一直很骄傲。

作为核心产品的一种,“智能锁”在摩拜官网被提到了和“经典版”、“轻骑”一样的高度。其主打的产品特性很明确:精准定位、秒级响应、无惧环境、随时可用。标志性的橘红色背景上,口号清晰浮现:“摩拜制造,天生靠得住。”

根据EDN电子技术论坛上的一篇长贴分析,摩拜单车车锁内部结构包括中心控制单元、无线移动通信模块2G、机电锁车装置、电池、动能发电模块、充电管理模块、车载加速度计等。另外,摩拜的智能锁在一开始就支持GPS定位。

单从其硬件设施来看,摩拜的骄傲是有资本的。

冤家路窄,ofo和摩拜总是不可避免地被人拿出来比较。车锁这件事上也不例外。

最开始出现的ofo共享单车,一律配备的传统拨盘式机械锁。开锁时,在App中输入车牌号或者扫描二维码,通过应用返还的密码开锁。这种密码锁劣势是密码固定,需要人用完手动打乱密码盘。否则下一个人就可以直接骑走。

后来,ofo新推出的“智能锁”,其解锁方式依然一样,只是密码不再固定,随机生成。但车锁被撬,单车被个人长期占用的情况,依然屡屡发生于小黄车之中。

车锁质量的确不行,难免被对家呛。2017年6月19日,金沙江创投资合伙人朱啸虎在朋友圈发文为其领投的ofo共享单车站台,转发文章称ofo的活跃用户数量和用户增速远远超过摩拜,稳居行业第一。

很快,投资了摩拜的马化腾在该条朋友圈下面评论“从微信支付看摩拜高一倍多”,还直言“智能机和非智能机未来价值和潜力还是很不同的”,意在暗讽小黄车车锁不智能。朱啸虎不死心,回怼摩拜采用的双向通信智能锁完全没必要,ofo最佳性价比才是上上策。

但马化腾随即宣称:“小灵通肯定是要废掉的”,“堆一堆哑终端谁不会?”

这下,朱啸虎没有回击。

抛开技术本身,ofo的简易电子锁并非欠考虑。事实上,这正是其市场策略的一部分。

在ofo创始人戴威看来,降低运营成本是其最核心的商业基础。ofo之所以能顺利从校园走向市场,拼的就是低廉的价格和与之相配套的海量投放。《南方都市报》报道称,为了控制成本,一代ofo是市面上唯一不用GPS、不用电子密码,甚至不参与生产设计的厂商。“GPS要电池、sim卡,其成本相当于一辆ofo单车70%的成本。”戴威表示,只要车投放得足够多,用户就不需要手机找车,GPS的功能并不必要。

而摩拜不同,一开始就走的就是质量高的轻奢路线。有分析文章称,摩拜单个智能锁的造价约为200到300元,经典款全车造价在3000元以上。商品降级后的“轻骑”,单车造价也维持在1000元左右。

而ofo的机械锁成本不到15元。第一代全车成本不到200元。升级后的3.0版本,全车造价也刚到500元。一辆早期的ofo,搞不好还抵不上摩拜一个智能锁的造价。

两个品牌对于车辆配置的高低,也算是同自己的商业路线相匹配。在共享单车出现的早期和后来的高光时刻,二者的路线之争一直存在,倒也成为各自安身立命一大法宝。

投靠巨头后,共享单车会好吗?

然而,无论是哪种路线,皆未能抵御住2018年的共享单车之冬。

今年8月,财经网称,北京垃圾回收市场回收废弃小黄车,价格5元一辆。闲鱼上,摩拜单车智能锁的锂电池被拆出来售卖,价格15到58元不等。昔日荣光不再,小黄和小橙的命运令人唏嘘。

虽然没有投身任何巨头,ofo的日子也绝不算好过。由于深陷“退款门”的泥潭,ofo几乎销声匿迹。唯一能证明其还存在的迹象是App新推出的“押金换购”的活动,但也是骂声一片。据相关截图显示,排队退押金人数已超过1600万。

和拼命支撑的ofo不同,自今年三月投身美团之后,摩拜颇尝到了一些寄人篱下的滋味。先是面临大裁员,而后又集体搬家,最后发现原本许诺独立运营的摩拜变成了美团单车。车型没变,涂装却变成了老对手的黄色,让不少老员工扼腕叹息。

可是情怀并不能当饭吃,盈利正在成为行业共识。据虎嗅网报道,美团给出理由很简单:涂装的成本要低于品牌推广的成本。自被收购以来,摩拜将精力放在了削减成本、提高收入和订单数上,几乎没有投放新的单车。

这份精打细算似乎起作用了。就三季度美团财报来看,其各业务继续实现强劲增长,季度营收达275亿元人民币,创单季新高;公司实现经调整净利润19亿元,去年同期经调整亏损净额24.7亿元。摩拜单车的表现也没有想象中的糟糕。美团点评CEO王兴前段时间接受采访时提及,美团单车这一年的周转率业绩“比较好”;并表示下几个季度着手更换老旧单车,进一步提升用户基础和平台黏性。

回到共享单车行业,新面孔已经登上王位——据易观的数据显示,2019年7月,共享单车小程序活跃用户规模,哈啰出行最高(4162万人),其次是青桔单车(4003万人)和摩拜单车(2878万人)。共享单车独立App的活跃用户第一名也是哈啰出行(1971万人)。

7月底,北京市交通委约谈在京共享单车企业后,只剩下摩拜单车、ofo单车、小蓝单车、便利蜂单车和哈啰单车等5家企业纳入北京市互联网租赁自行车监管与服务平台监督管理。ofo已经穷途末路,便利蜂份额很小;摩拜和小蓝则正在被替换成美团单车和滴滴的青桔,再加上哈啰背后站着的阿里。美团、滴滴、阿里的三足鼎立格局已然形成。

不过,靠着金主爸爸叱咤街头的玩家们,似乎比曾经少了一分疯狂,多了一分冷静。据锌财经消息,目前摩拜严格按照“饱和城市只置换不新增”原则,把精细化、智能化运营当做工作重点。在摩拜单车的全生命周期智能管理平台上,记录着每辆车的各部件维修保养记录,可以追溯每一个零部件的使用寿命,并根据维修保养记录,优化车辆的设计生产,从而提高车辆的使用寿命。而为这份精细化维护保驾护航的,正是带有蓝牙和定位功能的智能锁。

新王者哈啰和摩拜一样,力图将运维成本降到最低。在控制损耗成本,寻找失联车辆的流程中,智能锁已经成为必需品。锌财经提及,在对失联车辆的找回上,哈啰通过哈啰大脑+智能锁+运维bos组成线下处理失联车的有效解决方案。

通过智能锁的智能预判及实时通讯,运维可以更快的寻找到失联车辆。如果一辆车跟服务端失去联系,哈啰第五代车锁中的蓝牙芯片便可以跟附近的车辆形成蓝牙组,通过其它的车辆,跟服务端保持一定的通信能力,从而减少车辆损耗、丢失,帮助车辆找回。

现在,无论是什么品牌,智能锁已经成为共享单车标配。摩拜的先发优势,ofo的精打细算,到最后都是殊途同归,智能锁最后都演化成用户的行为轨迹,填充巨头庞大的数据库。

Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: How, if at all, could a new U.S. law change the fight for democracy in Hong Kong? China's government has summoned the U.S. ambassador for a conversation. It is safe to say that Chinese officials are telling Terry Branstad of their displeasure. President Trump signed a law passed by Congress. That law promises sanctions on Chinese officials who violate human rights in Hong Kong. David Rennie is with us this morning to talk about that and more. He is The Economist's Beijing bureau chief. Welcome back to the program, David. DAVID RENNIE: Hello. INSKEEP: First, I have to ask, as best you can tell, is Beijing symbolically upset or seriously upset by this law? RENNIE: No. They are seriously upset, and you can tell that because if you're based in Beijing and you have off-the-record conversations with pretty senior Chinese officials, as I have in the last few days, they are full of the idea that all of these protests are being whipped

Grobocopatel: “El peronismo es un elemento ordenador; esperemos que nos conduzca hacia el futuro y no hacia el pasado”

Gustavo GrobocopatelGustavo Grobocopatel

A poco del cambio de la transición, el empresario agroindustrial Gustavo Grobocopatel aseguró que no tiene relación con el presidente electo, Alberto Fernández, pero se apropió de un concepto del sociólogo español Manuel Castells para mostrar su optimismo de cara a la etapa que viene.

 

“El peronismo es un elemento ordenador de la sociedad. Hasta ahora, mucha gente pensaba que era algo que desordenaba, pero yo creo que ordena. Hay que pensar las soluciones con el peronismo incluido, con el peronismo ordenador, que es lo que vamos a tener de acá en adelante”, enfatizó el presidente del grupo Los Grobo. “Esperemos que sea ordenador y nos conduzca hacia el futuro y no hacia el pasado”, añadió.

 

En el marco de los tradicionales almuerzos que organiza el Rotary Club, Grobocopatel dijo que “los países que ganaron en épocas de turbulencia, como la actual, son aquellos que abrazaron las causas de la tecnología y el desarrollo con mayor capacidad de adaptación”.

 

En ese contexto, puso el ejemplo de China y remarcó que no se dio allí la Revolución Industrial porque la sociedad no estaba preparada para los cambios. Además hizo referencia a la necesidad de lograr consensos y también habló de la grieta: “La experiencia de este año para mí fue traumática. Estuvimos ocho meses siendo espectadores de un debate público insustancial mientras se destruían el empleo y las empresas”, se sinceró.

 

Sobre la suba de retenciones, el empresario afirmó que si bien no es un fundamentalista en contra de estos impuestos, dependiendo de cómo se haga, caerá la producción agrícola y las inversiones en un sector que tiene mucho más para dar de lo que dio: “Soy de los que creen que el trigo y maíz siempre tuvieron que tener 5% de derechos por el mercado interno, pero es un instrumento que si lo aplican mal, no funciona”, aseguró.

 

“Además, se cree que las retenciones impactan sólo en el productor agropecuario, cuando en realidad afectan a toda la cadena agroindustrial. Hasta a Toyota que fabrica la Hilux le va a impactar”, agregó.

 

Para Grobocopatel, si el nuevo gobierno subiera las retenciones como trascendió, parte de esa recaudación debería ser usada, por ejemplo, para tener “créditos abundantes y baratos, al menos a las mismas tasas internacionales, para que los productores hagan inversiones. Porque eso no te ahoga, sino que te da la posibilidad de crecer”.

 

"Hay que ser muy ingeniosos para que las medidas que se tomen no destruyan, sino construyan y potencien", culminó el empresario.

Commenti su L’uomo che era Roy Batty di The Butcher

 Cache   
Mi ha molto colpito il paragone che hai fatto con il Roy Betty originale e il mostro di Frankenstein. Ricordo bene che inizialmente per il film su Frankenstein volevano che la Creatura fosse un essere freddo e spietato, una macchina da guerra senza freni. E invece per fortuna (grazie mille James Whale) l'hanno reso quel personaggio complesso e drammatico che conosciamo tutti. La stessa cosa vale per il personaggio di Roy Betty. La cosa che più di tutte mi affascina è che, anche se commette azioni tremende, lo spettatore capisce molto bene le sue motivazioni e ha pure ragione. Però le sue azioni sono comunque sbagliate. E' un personaggio tragico, scirtto bene e interpretato alla grande dal compianto Hauer.

Trump Pertimbangkan Hapus Tarif Impor China untuk Apple

 Cache   
Setelah meninjau pabrik perakitan komputer Apple Inc, Presiden AS Donald Trump, Rabu (20/11), mengatakan sedang mempertimbangkan apakah akan membebaskan perusahaan Amerika itu dari pengenaan tarif impor untuk barang-barang dari China. "Kami sedang mempelajari," ujar Trump menjawab pertanyaan wartawan tentang tarif itu, setelah berkeliling pabrik perakitan komputer meja Mac Pro di Austin, Texas, bersama CEO Apple Tim Cook.  Cook, yang memiliki hubungan yang kuat dengan Trump, telah meminta agar Apple dibebaskan dari tarif impor itu. AS menerapkan tarif impor atas barang-barang dari China sebagai bagian dari perang dagang selama berbulan-bulan antara kedua ekonomi terbesar di dunia. Apple mengumumkan September lalu akan membuat komputer Mac Pro baru di Austin. Pengumuman itu datang beberapa hari setelah regulator perdagangan Amerika menyetujui 10 dari 15 permintaan pembebasan tarif yang diajukan Apple. Awal bulan ini, Apple juga meminta pemerintah Trump menghapus tarif pada Apple Watches yang dibuat di China, komponen iPhone dan produk-produk konsumen lainnya. Trump menjadikan peningkatan sektor manufaktur salah satu kebijakannya. Di Twitter ia mendesak perusahaan-perusahaan Amerika agar membuka usahanya di dalam negeri.[ka/pp]

A clear warning

 Cache   
The three primary anti-globalist powers are sending a very clear message to the prometheans of GloboSatan Inc: the planetary balance of power is shifting:
Iran, China, and Russia will hold in the coming weeks their first-ever joint war drills, which leaders say are meant to send a "message to the world" about increased military cooperation between the rogue countries.

The commander of Iran's navy, Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi, said Wednesday that the Islamic Republic will team up with Moscow and Beijing within the next month to hold the mass war drills.... The joint war drills will be aimed at sending a message to the world, particularly Western nations, like the United States, that have sought to constrain Iran's expanding military ambitions.
This gathering of resisting forces very likely accounts for the desperate sense of urgency that Dr. Charlton has observed among what he describes as the Ahrimanic evil of the global establishment:
The interesting aspect is the sheer urgency. There is a very obvious attempt to create a worldwide sense of emergency, of imminent cataclysm, of terrible things that are Just About To Happen... unless, we hand over complete power to the Establishment (preferably the-day-after-tomorrow, or quicker). And this handover - this Power Grab by the Global Establishment - is being aimed-at Very Soon; on a timescale of months, not years.
Like it or not, the reality is that the U.S. military has been the primary tool for global evil for the last 75 years, due to the invasion of the USA and the abandonment of the American principles of isolation, non-intervention, and the avoidance of entangling alliances. And now, having been converged and repurposed, the U.S. military is observably no longer able to perform its primary purpose, which is to defend the American people from enemies foreign and domestic.
          

The blessings of free trade

 Cache   
It's interesting to see that the West is suddenly discovering the intrinsic dangers of free trade when it is China providing services to other nations:
China could shut off the Philippines' power grid at will, a report has warned - highlighting fears about Beijing's role in infrastructure around the world. A report for Philippine lawmakers found that the country's national security 'is completely compromised' by China's access to the power grid.

Chinese engineers have exclusive access to parts of the system and could shut it down remotely, the report seen by CNN reveals. The findings will spark alarm in the West where China is helping to build a new nuclear power station in the UK and has already faced sanctions from the US.
But why would this cause any problems? Surely the New Filipinos who happen to be of Chinese descent love their new country and are just as Filipino as those whose great-great-grandparents were born in Manila are!

Paper nationalism is, and has always been, a shameless lie told by immigrants to advantage themselves vis-a-vis the native populations. 

And who cares if China can shut off the Philippines' power grid anyhow. The important thing is that the arrangement is more economically efficient, right? And nothing is more important than economic efficiency!
          

Mailvox: a nuanced take

 Cache   
Another perspective on Hong Kong in light of the electoral victory of the "pro-democracy" forces:
To say that the protests are not organic is not accurate. They are organic, it's just that they're being used and manipulated by US and UK forces for their own purposes. But Hong Kongers definitely have real grievances, some real and some suffering from a bit of over-active imagination. On the real side is the housing market. Regular people can't afford to buy a home anymore, and this is a bigger deal in Chinese society than it is in the West. The reason is two-fold: One, real estate is controlled by a handful of tycoons, and Two, Beijing has courted and collaborated with those tycoons. Everyone knows that part of the reason the prices have gone up is because of increased investment from wealthy mainlanders, with whom ordinary Hong Kongers can't compete.

On the imagined side, the Hong Kong protesters have a view of mainland China which might have come from Fox News, which is remarkable since they live right next to it, and many of them visit on a regular basis. But in talking to them, they talk about China the same way people in America who have never been there and only know what they see on the news talk about it. I don't quite know why this is. Perhaps because they're descended from people who fled during the Mao years and heard horror stories about those times. The unfortunate thing is that Beijing could help Hong Kong by intervening in the housing market the way they do in Shenzhen. But Beijing wouldn't do that, and Hong Kongers wouldn't accept it if they would. There is a general lack of trust and understanding between the two sides which hinders any solution to the problems.
This is actually very much in keeping with what I have heard from people living there. But while the votes for the "pro-democracy" forces and the protesters are certainly overlapping, they are not the same thing.

I am, of course, extremely skeptical of anything that purports to be "pro-democracy", as historically that tends to mean little more than "CIA-backed".

Hablamos con Remedy sobre su esperado trabajo para CrossfireX

 Cache   

Parece una unión extraña. Remedy, los desarrolladores de esotéricas aventuras en tercera persona como Control, Quantum Break o Alan Wake, está haciendo la campaña del juego más grande del planeta, un shooter militar en primera persona. Remedy, que no ha hecho nunca un FPS. ¿Qué está pasando?

CrossfireX se anunció para Xbox en la conferencia de Microsoft del pasado E3 2019, pero nos nos extrañaría que te lo hubieses perdido o, incluso, que lo hubieses olvidado. En aquel entonces parecía una curiosidad, uno de esos juegos masivos en Asia que a los occidentales nos importan más bien poco. Pero el Crossfire original es, quizás, el juego más popular del mundo, con cerca de 650 millones de jugadores, mayoritariamente en Corea del Sur y China. Es una especie de Counter-Strike, con dos facciones que se disparan la una a la otra. Y lleva siendo así bastante tiempo; diez años, según explicó su desarrolladora, SmileGate. Es, por lo tanto, algo importante. Algo realmente importante, la verdad.

Análisis de Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts

 Cache   

Hay algo en la figura del francotirador que resulta fascinante. Es esa mezcla que contiene grandes dosis de lobo solitario, habilidad, disciplina, concentración y, por supuesto, un rifle de gran calibre. Siempre que visualizamos a un tirador de precisión, lo vemos camuflado en la maleza, esperando pacientemente a su objetivo y ejecutando la orden con una precisión milimétrica y sin dejar rastro. Como un fantasma. Obviamente, esta es la figura que poco a poco nos ha ido conformando la ficción, a la que le encanta tomarse sus licencias creativas para entregarnos obras tremendamente disfrutables.

Y, dentro de la ficción, el videojuego no iba a ser menos. Lo raro hubiera sido que este medio, tan amigo de la representación de lo militar, no hubiera sucumbido a reflejar las aventuras de ese operativo que es capaz de eliminar enemigos a distancias imposibles, entrar y salir de bases enemigas sin ser visto o asesinar VIPs como el que se prepara unos cereales. Y así llega este Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts de la mano de CI Games, para reinventarse dentro de una larga saga, probar nuevas fórmulas e intentar encontrar su propia forma de hacer las cosas dentro del género de volar almendras desde grandes distancias.

Ya desde el comienzo queda claro que este shooter en primera persona se desliga de los habituales contextos bélicos que suelen acompañar a este tipo de títulos. Su ambientación no podría ser más sugerente: Siberia, harta de ser la mayor proveedora de riqueza y recursos naturales de la Federación Rusa, decide independizarse a las bravas y, tras una breve pero intensa guerra independentista, proclama la República de Siberia. Al poco tiempo, plagada de nepotismo y corrupción, este joven estado lleno de viejos problemas se enfrenta a una fuerza insurgente dentro de su propio territorio, mientras brega con las tensiones de la Federación Rusa, China y Estados Unidos. Y ahí será cuando entremos nosotros, un mercenario dedicado a cumplir unos sangrientos encargos cuyo único propósito parece ser desestabilizar a una ya de por sí tambaleante República de Siberia. Solo responderemos al nombre en código "Seeker" y nuestros empleadores sólo contactaran con nosotros a través de un sujeto cuyo nombre en clave será "Handler". Con tan poca información, tiene que haber lugares dedicados a este tipo de trabajos. A uno le gusta soñar y espera que sea una web llamada "SniperJobs".

Go World Champion Retires After Realizing He Can’t Beat AI

 Cache   

Go is one of the most complex abstract strategy games which involves surrounding more territory than your opponent to win the game. Lee Sedol is the world champion of the Go game and has bagged #2 position in international titles.

In March 2016, Lee Sedol competed against Google’s AI-based AlphaGo program and lost four out of five matches to the AI. Sedol was shocked after the defeat and said, “I don’t know how to start or what to say today, but I think I would have to express my apologies first. I do apologize for not being able to satisfy a lot of people’s expectations. I kind of felt powerless.

The defeat at the hands of Google’s AI impacted Sedol to the extent that he has now announced his retirement from the game as he believes that he cannot defeat AI.

This is just one example of Google’s AI beating humans. The list of AlphaGo’s opponents includes China’s Ke Jie who got defeated back in 2017.

As reported by Yonhap News Agency, Sedol has filed his resignation to Korea Baduk Association (KBA), the agency that regulates Go players in South Korea.

Speaking to Yonhap, Sedol said, “With the debut of AI in Go games, I’ve realized that I’m not at the top even if I become the number one through frantic efforts. Even if I become the number one, there is an entity that cannot be defeated.”

Another reason he cited for his resignation is his disagreement with KBA over how the organization uses membership fees.

To celebrate his 24-year long career, Sedol will play one last game of Go against HanDol, an AI-based Go-playing software developed by South Korean company NHN Entertainment.


          

Sri Lanka Tells Richer Nations to Step Up to Counter China FDI

Sri Lanka Tells Richer Nations to Step Up to Counter China FDI(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. Bigger and richer economies should invest in smaller Asian ones if they want to counter China’s expanding Belt and Road Initiative, Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said.“I want to tell India, Japan, Singapore and Australia and other countries to also come and invest in us,” Rajapaksa said in an interview with the Hindu newspaper. “They should tell their companies to invest in Sri Lanka and help us grow, because if they do not, then not only Sri Lanka, but countries all over Asia will have the same (problem).”China’s Belt and Road Initiative has resulted in an estimated $575 billion worth of energy plants, railways, roads, ports and other projects. But President Xi Jinping’s signature effort has also come in for criticism, including accusations that China is luring poor countries into debt traps for its own political and strategic gain.Sri Lanka’s new government led by Rajapaksa is trying to undo the previous regime’s move to lease the southern port of Hambantota to a Chinese venture, citing national interest. There were concerns in India about its geopolitical rival using a port close to its southern coastline for future military uses.The local government must have control of all strategically important projects like Hambantota, Rajapaksa told the Hindu paper. While Sri Lanka has come under scrutiny for its ties with China, its agreements were “purely commercial,” he said.A port deal similar to Hambantota under the Belt and Road program in Myanmar was drastically scaled back to $1.3 billion from $7.5 billion, while in Malaysia the government canceled $3 billion worth of pipelines and renegotiated a rail project in 2019, cutting that one’s cost by a third to $11 billion.“The main issues India could have with us would be on (our relations) with China or Pakistan, but if we don’t do anything that creates suspicions amongst Indian authorities, there will not be any problem,” Rajapaksa said. “The Chinese will take the Belt and Road Initiative all over unless other countries provide an alternative.”To contact the reporter on this story: Anurag Kotoky in New Delhi at akotoky@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shamim Adam at sadam2@bloomberg.net, Sara MarleyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Three Qatari students to represent nation in Huawei ICT Competition regional final

 Cache   

Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has announced the winners of the Qatar edition of the Huawei Middle East ICT Competition 2019, held recently in collaboration with the Ministry ofEducation and Higher Education.

The longstanding competition, which falls under Huawei’s strategy to develop the global ICT talent ecosystem, aims to nurture local talent in the ICT field with a vision to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully-connected and intelligent world.

This year’s winning team, comprising three students and their professor, was chosen from a field of 253 finalists, who competed following the preliminary round involving entries from 4 universities. This year’s finalists from Qatar represent Qatar University and Community College of Qatar. In addition to competing against other winners from the Middle East, the regional winners will be invited back to China to take part in a competition with global Huawei ICT Competition winners.

The competition promotes innovation and creativity while serving as a bridge between the classroom and the workplace. By nurturing university students’ talent in Qatar, it also contributes to increasing national ICT competitiveness while supporting Qatar National Vision 2030. Having already received certificates and prizes as Qatar’snational winners, the local teams havenowearned a trip to China this November, where they will compete with their fellow finalists from around the Middle Eastregion to win the ICT Competition’s grand prize – US$30,000.

Their visit will include the once-in-a-lifetime chance to work amongst some of the world’s most renowned technology pioneers in Huawei’s facilities. Participants will conduct field experiments at Huawei's specialized labs and research centers in its headquarters in Shenzhen, helping equip students with the tools needed to tackle complex challenges in areas such as cloud computing, IoT, and network security. The technical program will be complemented by anumber of cultural experiences and knowledge-exchangeopportunities while in China.

In addition, students and their mentors will have the opportunity to meet their country’s ambassador to China during the Huawei-organized Ambassadors Summit Discussions event. This will provide the participants with the chance to discuss with respected leaders and cultural envoys their future ambitions and anticipations for their national ICT sector.

Congratulating the winners, Frank Fan, CEO Huawei Technologies Qatar, said: “Huawei recognizes the importance of nurturing local talent so that they have the knowledge and expertise to lead tomorrow’s highly connected, intelligent world. By investing in future talent and building a more robust ICT talent ecosystem inQatar, we are investing in the future of the country. The winning teams are well deserved of the honor to represent their country in the Huawei ICT Competition global final in China. I offer them my congratulations and wish them the best of luck in the competition’s final stage.”

Farhan Khan, Vice President of Huawei Qatar, said: “Qatar has exceptional ICT talent, which we are proud to nurture through opportunities such as the Huawei ICT Competition. Huawei is committed to creating opportunities to empower youth with the skills needed to further digitalization on a national and global scale.”

Throughout the Huawei ICT Competition stages, contestants receive the latest updates onemerging technologies that are reshaping Lebanon’s digital economy. These include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and most importantly 5G broadband—seen as a crucial digital-service enabler. The competition is a unique opportunity for students to test their abilities in these cutting-edge fields, and helps colleges and universities to better understand the talent requirements of today’s top businesses and government leaders.

During the final, participants are equipped with an online guide and are supervised by university professors. University professors play the role of the student’s tutor, accompanying national winners to Huawei’s headquarters and discussing with Huawei the future development of the competition and Lebanon’s wider ICT talent ecosystem. The last edition of the Huawei ICT Competition 2018 saw 14,551 students participate from across the Middle East. From these, 4,113 students were selected to take part in the preliminary rounds. 310 students passed on to the final round, and 39 traveled to China to compete internationally. A total of 17ministries and 226universities took part in total across the region.

China’s contribution to climate change

 Cache   
Issue 
November 28, 2019

China is the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide (CO2). It surpassed the United States in 2006, according to the Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) database created by the European Commission and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. On a per capita basis, China’s emission levels are less than half those of the US, according to EDGAR.

One contributing factor to the rise of China's emissions is the fact that transnational corporations (TNCs) based in the US and other rich countries have shifted much of their production to China. For example, Apple iPhones are produced in China. It could be argued that the emissions from such production should be included in the figures for the countries where the TNCs are based, rather than China.

But even allowing for this, China is a big contributor to CO2 emissions. China now has its own giant corporations such as Huawei and Great Wall. Chinese investment in other countries is expanding. Much of it is aimed at obtaining raw materials for China's industry, and is causing environmental destruction in the source countries.

A few years ago it looked as if China might be taking serious steps to rein in its emissions. Renewable energy was being rapidly expanded. Some coal-fired power stations were shut down (mainly those near big cities, where smoke was adding to the air pollution problem).

But new coal-fired power stations continue to be built. According to Global Energy Monitor, 148 gigawatts of coal-fired power stations are either being built or about to begin construction. This is equivalent to the entire current capacity of the European Union.

This new construction is occurring despite the fact that the Chinese electricity grid is oversupplied and power stations are working at only half their capacity. This irrational situation is a result of Chinese energy companies competing for market share with no overall plan.

Meanwhile, there has been a rapid growth in car production in China, which now has the biggest car sales in the world.

Military spending is also growing, resulting in increased consumption of oil by planes, warships, tanks and other military vehicles.

China today is a capitalist country. It is highly unequal. On the one hand, it has the second highest number of billionaires in the world, after the US, according to a survey by the Swiss bank UBS and accounting firm PWC. On the other, it has hundreds of millions of low-paid workers, many of them producing goods for transnational corporations.

However, China still has a relatively strong state-owned sector of the economy.

In the years following the 1949 revolution, existing privately-owned factories were nationalised and new state-owned enterprises (SOEs) were created. Many SOEs were privatised or shut down in the 1990s, but some key sectors of industry were kept under state ownership.

China's industrialisation was largely fuelled by coal, both during the period when all industry was state-owned and during the period of growing private ownership. The growth of production for the world market has led to a further expansion of coal use, as well as chemical pollution of land and water.

The growth of pollution led to numerous protests by affected people, resulting in pressure on the government to solve environmental problems. China was also under pressure in international forums to limit its CO2 emissions.

The government took steps to reduce the burning of coal in or near big cities. It promoted the rapid expansion of renewable energy. High speed rail was built as an alternative to car or plane travel between cities.

But it was not enough. CO2 emissions are still growing, even if more slowly than before. Capitalism cannot solve the climate crisis, and Chinese capitalism is no exception.

China is the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide.

Hongkong | Unterwegs mit Helm und Gasmaske

 Cache   
Für die Sieben-Millionen-Stadt ist das Unvorhersehbare zum Normalzustand geworden. Ein persönlicher Bericht
Unterwegs mit Helm und Gasmaske

Mir geht es seit Monaten wie vielen Menschen hier: Wir schauen zu, wie sich unsere Stadt von Tag zu Tag mehr in einen Kriegsschauplatz verwandelt. Ein Gefühl von Hilflosigkeit und Furcht nimmt überhand. Jedesmal, wenn ich die Wohnung verlasse, um als Reporterin zu arbeiten, mahnen mich meine Kinder zur Vorsicht: „Pass bloß auf dich auf!“ Wann immer ich Helm und Gasmaske einpacke, fühlt es sich an, als würde ich mich auf ein Schlachtfeld begeben.

Meine Gefühle fahren Achterbahn, noch nie konnte ich so viele Wochen hintereinander nachts nicht schlafen, war ich appetitlos und unfähig an etwas Anderes zu denken als an Straßen, von denen man ständig annehmen muss, dass sie zu Kampfzonen werden. Besonders spürbar war der seelische Ausnahmezustand im Oktober, als die Behörden den Betrieb der U-Bahnen tagelang einstellten. Mich überkam ein surreales Gefühl von Unbehagen. Es stand außer Frage, dass man die Wochenendaktivitäten der Kinder absagen musste, schließlich waren alle öffentlichen Freizeiteinrichtungen geschlossen.

Zugänge verriegelt

Also fuhr ich mit meiner Familie im Taxi ans Meer. Ins Wasser zu gehen, war nicht ohne Risiko, denn kein Rettungsschwimmer tat mehr Dienst. Auf dem Weg zurück hielten uns Straßenbarrikaden auf, die von Demonstranten errichtet waren. Die Kinder wurden unruhig und hatten Angst, dass gleich die Polizei aufkreuzen und Tränengas einsetzen würde. Daher stiegen wir aus dem Taxi und machten uns schnell wie möglich durch die Menge davon. Es blieb eine erste Ahnung, dass diese Art des Bedrohlichen und Unvorhersehbaren zum Normalzustand werden könnte. Als es zuletzt den Sturm auf das Universitätsgelände gab, um die Studenten dort zu vertreiben, war ein Großteil der Stadt wie gelähmt. Beide Seiten, Demonstranten wie Polizisten, blockierten Straßen. Wieder fuhr kein Bus, und die meisten U-Bahn-Zugänge blieben verriegelt.

Sobald die Auseinandersetzungen auch nur aufflackern, bedeutet das: Menschen sind zuhause gefangen und können nicht zur Arbeit erscheinen. Wer das trotzdem schafft, kann nie sicher sein, am gleichen Tag wieder nach Hause zu kommen. Von den Angestellten im Finanzdistrikt, wagt es kaum noch jemand, zum Lunch nach draußen zu gehen. Man ist auch dort vor Tränengas nicht mehr sicher. Wenn Restaurants deshalb schließen oder Konzerte und andere Veranstaltungen abgesagt oder früher beendet werden, erliegt jedes soziale Leben. Auch wenn sie gar nicht verhängt worden ist, man lebt wie unter einer Ausgangssperre. Sogar Hochzeiten werden durchkreuzt – Freunde von mir mussten sich eine andere Kirche suchen, um ihre Gäste nicht Straßen voller Tränengas auszusetzen.

Nur noch auswandern

Alle sind hochgradig erregt, sodass zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen notgedrungen belastet und Familien oder Freundeskreise gespalten werden. Eltern und Kinder reden nicht mehr miteinander. Es wird vermieden, beim Abendessen über Politik zu sprechen. Die Geister scheiden sich an der Frage, ob man sich zum gelben (pro Protest) oder blauen Lager (pro China) bekennt. Ich habe Bekannte, die zur Auswanderung entschlossen sind, eher heute als morgen. Sie fürchten, dass ihre Kinder in einer Gesellschaft aufwachsen, in der es keine Grundwerte mehr gibt. Als überall in der Stadt Schulen geschlossen waren, freuten sich Hongkongs normalerweise stark akademisch gedrillte Kinder über Tage des freien Spielens im Park. Ich wusste nicht, sollte ich lachen oder weinen, wenn ich sie „schwarze Polizisten“ gegen „Demonstranten“ spielen sah.

Meine eigenen Großeltern flohen 1949 mit ihren sieben Kindern in einem überfüllten Zug nach Hongkong, nur wenige Monate vor Ausrufung der Volksrepublik in China am 1. Oktober 1949. Wie mein Vater erzählte, musste seine Familie nach ihrer Ankunft auf Tischen und Stühlen in einer Schule übernachten. Man sollte nicht vergessen: Die internationale Metropole und Finanz-Drehscheibe, die Hongkong heute ist, wurde nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg innerhalb weniger Jahrzehnte durch die harte Arbeit meiner Vorfahren und anderer Geflüchteter geschaffen. Werden jetzt, nur eine oder zwei Generationen später, ihre Kinder oder Enkelkinder wieder fliehen müssen?

Die meisten Hongkonger – vor allem die jungen – können es sich nicht leisten zu emigrieren. Und sie wissen genau, dass China ein mächtiges Regime ist, das sie nicht besiegen können.

Was sollte ich sagen?

Ich habe viele Demonstranten gefragt, warum sie sich angesichts der geringen Hoffnung auf Zugeständnisse weiter in endlose Straßenkämpfe mit der Polizei einlassen, wenn es doch nur dazu führt, dass sie verletzt und verhaftet werden. Für Volksaufruhr drohen immerhin bis zu zehn Jahre Gefängnis. Auch wollte ich wissen, ob ihnen klar ist, dass der Regierung nach fünf Monaten Widerstand eskalierende Handlungen als Rechtfertigung dienen, drakonische Maßnahmen zu ergreifen. Sollte dies geschehen, könnten die Menschen in Hongkong mit weniger bürgerlichen Freiheiten dastehen als zuvor.

Regelmäßig erhielt ich die Antwort, friedliche Proteste hätten aber zu nichts geführt. Man habe keine Angst davor, das Leben in einem letzten Kampf für Hongkong zu lassen. „Wenn wir draufgehen, dann gehen wir gemeinsam drauf!“, sagen viele. „Hongkong stirbt sowieso; da können wir auch einen letzten Versuch machen.” Ihre Hoffnungslosigkeit tat mir in der Seele weh. Ich wandte warnend ein, dass ihr Opfer umsonst sein könnte. „Was ist dann Ihre Lösung?“, hielten mir die Demonstranten entgegen. Da wusste ich nichts zu sagen.

Hongkong | Es ist kurz vor 2047

 Cache   
Das Konzept „Ein Land, zwei Systeme“ hat sich vorzeitig erschöpft
Es ist kurz vor 2047

Die Koexistenz zwischen der Sieben-Millionen-Stadt und Festland-China wirkt gestört, die noch von Deng Xiaoping geprägte Formel „Ein Land, zwei Systeme“ kaum mehr zeitgemäß. 2014 entluden sich die Konflikte in einer drei Monate dauernden „Regenschirm-Revolte“, 2019 hält eine Protestbewegung die Stadt seit mehr als fünf Monaten in Atem. Staatsrechtlich gehört Hongkong seit 1997 zur Volksrepublik China, deren Staatspräsident ist auch Hongkongs Staatsoberhaupt, vor dem jeder Hongkong-Premier (Chief Executive) den Amtseid ablegen muss. Ein Ritual, um Machtrealitäten zu spiegeln.

In Hongkongs Stadtregierung kommt in der Regel nicht zum Zuge, wer in Peking missfällt. Chinas Staatsführung hat das Ende der Hongkong-Autonomie im Jahr 2047 fest im Blick und ist schon jetzt um mehr Kontrolle bemüht. Was auch damit zu tun hat, dass sich die Vorteile des Musters „Ein Land, zwei Systeme“ schneller erschöpft haben als einst angenommen. 1997 galt als ausgemacht, dass Hongkong eine kapitalistische Ökonomie wie seine mehr oder minder demokratische Ordnung zunächst behält. Für dieses Modell gab es besonders einen Grund: Ende der 1990er war Hongkong als Welthandels- und Weltfinanzplatz willkommen.

Effektive Unterdrückung

Die Volksrepublik brauchte Auslandskapital und Zugang zu den Weltmärkten, Hongkong bot beides. Unternehmen und Banken zogen vom Festland in eine Sonderverwaltungszone, die jedoch mittlerweile für China an Relevanz eingebüßt hat. Allein mit dem Finanzzentrum Schanghai gibt es eine Domäne, die Hongkong überflügelt. Und es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis auch die boomende Metropole Shenzhen ein alternativer Handels- und Finanztopos sein wird, der dem unsicheren Hongkong den Rang abläuft. Spätestens 2025 dürfte es so weit sein. Statt eines ökonomischen Prestiges kann Hongkong heute eher politische Vorteile für sich reklamieren, etwa als Stadt weiterhin eigenständiges Mitglied der Welthandelsorganisation WTO, des Allgemeinen Zoll- und Handelsabkommens GATT oder der Asiatisch-Pazifischen Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft APEC zu sein.

Hongkonger sind zweisprachig, neben Englisch wird Kantonesisch gesprochen. Kulturell und national gehören sie zu China, ohne die Chinesen vom Festland je geliebt zu haben. Geschätzt wird eine soziokulturelle Authentizität, dazu eine vitale Medienlandschaft, in der sich auch eine politische Opposition Gehör verschaffen kann. In dieser Metropole finden regelmäßig Wahlen statt, wie am Wochenende die Abstimmung über die Bezirksparlamente. Nur können die etwa 4,1 Millionen registrierten Wähler nicht direkt über die Zusammensetzung ihrer Regierung entscheiden. Auch wenn momentan 18 Parteien im Legislative Council vertreten sind, gibt es doch kein gleiches Wahlrecht, wofür noch die britische Kolonialmacht gesorgt hat.

Chinas Regierung sah bisher keinen Grund, das überaus komplizierte, keineswegs demokratische Wahlrecht in der Sonderverwaltungszone zu reformieren. So wird nur die Hälfte der 70 Abgeordneten im Legislative Council von den Bürgern direkt gewählt, den Rest nominieren 28 Interessengruppen, darunter der Lehrerverband, Industrie- und Handelskonzerne, der Börsenverein und Bankkonsortien, deren Stimmen mehr Gewicht haben als die einfacher Wahlbürger. Da das Grundgesetz von Hongkong der Pekinger Regierung substanzielle Eingriffe zugesteht, kann nur sie das kuriose Wahlrecht ändern, falls ihr das opportun erscheint. Nach dem Basic Law lassen sich in Hongkong zudem geltende Gesetze für ungültig erklären oder nach Artikel 39 die Rechte der Bürger einschränken. Die Magna Charta legitimiert die Zentralregierung in Peking, bei Unruhen in der Stadt den Notstand auszurufen, gegebenenfalls militärisch einzugreifen.

Bisher konnte sich Peking auf die lokalen Autoritäten verlassen, verfügten doch die prochinesischen Parteien über einen Block, der im Parlament und in den Bezirksräten eine klare Mehrheit besaß. Dabei wurde Carrie Lam, die derzeitige Chefadministratorin (so der Titel offiziell) nicht vom Stadtparlament gewählt, das blieb einem Wahlkollegium vorbehalten, über das in Peking entschieden wird und an dem nur einige Gesandte aus Hongkong-Bezirken beteiligt sind. Carrie Lam, die 2017 ans Ruder kam, steht für den Kurs all ihrer Vorgänger: Vorkehrungen treffen, dass Hongkong 2047 möglichst schmerzlos in die Volksrepublik „heimkehren“ kann.

Dagegen kommt die Opposition, zersplittert in viele Parteien und Gruppierungen, kaum an. Nach der Protestwelle von 2014 hat sie zwar bescheidene Wahlerfolge erzielt, aber jeder Versuch, das Wahlrecht zu demokratisieren oder gar für eine Unabhängigkeit Hongkongs einzutreten, wird rasch und effektiv unterdrückt. Wer solche Ansinnen vertritt, wird entweder nicht zur Wahl zugelassen oder des Parlaments verwiesen. Oppositionelle haben daher kaum eine andere Wahl, als auf die Straße zu gehen und auf den Beistand einiger großer Zeitungen oder des öffentlich-rechtlichen Fernsehens zu hoffen. Bisher konnte sich Peking bei daraus resultierenden Konflikten zurückhalten – das eigene Lager in Hongkong war stark genug. Gerät es in Bedrängnis, wird direkter Einfluss als unerlässlich angesehen.

Wahlsieg der Opposition

Am Sonntag gab es nun Wahlen zu Hongkongs Bezirksparlamenten. Da diese Gremien kaum etwas zu sagen haben, galt das Votum als Stimmungstest, wurde von Anhängern der Protestbewegung gar zum Plebiszit erklärt: Steht die schweigende Mehrheit hinter uns oder nicht? Nur ein Viertel der 479 Sitze in den 18 Bezirksräten wurde bisher von pro-demokratischen Parteien gehalten. Auch wenn bekannte Gesichter der Opposition von den Kandidatenlisten gestrichen wurden, traten diesmal aus deren Reihen mehr Bewerber an als je zuvor, während sich zugleich 400.000 neue Wähler registrieren ließen und die Wahlbeteiligung mit 71,2 Prozent höher ausfiel als bei allen Urnengängen seit 1997. Unter diesen Umständen errang die Opposition einen Sieg, sodass die pro-chinesischen Parteien die Mehrheit in fast allen Bezirksräten verloren. Ihre Gegner holten 278 der nunmehr 452 Bezirksratsposten. Fazit, Carrie Lam und ihre Entourage der Peking-Getreuen haben bei den Hongkongern keinen Rückhalt mehr.

EU | Warum nur?

 Cache   
Die neue Kommissionspräsidentin von der Leyen will das Nachzügler-Dasein der EU beenden, wenn es ums geopolitische Ranking geht, und eine „Sprache der Macht“ pflegen
Warum nur?

Ursula von der Leyen, ab 1. Dezember im Amt, will in Brüssel eine „wahrhaft geopolitische Kommission“ führen, war zuletzt mehrfach zu hören. Europa müsse „die Sprache der Macht“ lernen. Was in der Konsequenz nur heißen kann: Wird die beherrscht, ist davon Gebrauch zu machen. Zu welchem Zweck und wo überall? Und nicht zuletzt – wie? Durch die extensive Machtprojektion einer EU-Militärunion und unter der Voraussetzung, dass geopolitisches Großmachtdenken nun auch für die EU mehr denn je gilt? Ein wenig inspirierter – um nicht zu sagen: restaurativer Ansatz –, der auf Muster zurückgreift, von denen sich die USA im Nahen Osten gerade befreien. Sollte von der Leyen diesen Ansatz verfolgen, wäre weiter zu fragen: Kennt die neue Kommissionspräsidentin den Zustand der EU? Ist der geeignet, sie als Global Player über ihre Wirtschafts- und Handelsmacht hinaus in Szene zu setzen?

Dritter Weg, dritte Kraft?

Seit geraumer Zeit bereits ist der 27-Staaten-Bund alles andere als ein monolithischer Machtblock, mit dem geostrategische Ambitionen bedient werden könnten. Ein unerledigter Brexit ist nicht nur Dauerthema, sondern taugt zur Dauerkrise. Erst jüngst hat der Dissens über eine mögliche EU-Aufnahme Albaniens und Nordmazedoniens gegensätzliche Positionen zu einer fortgesetzten Osterweiterung offenbart. Schließlich setzen Frankreich und Deutschland als EU-Kernstaaten voneinander abweichende sicherheitspolitische Prioritäten, wenn es um die künftige Ausrichtung der EU geht. Präsident Macron will, dass Frankreich als europäische Macht geopolitisch wirksam wird, indem es sich auf europäische Militärmacht – vorrangig eine EU-Verteidigungsunion – stützt. Die soll sich von transatlantischen Zwängen emanzipieren und weitgehend unabhängig von der NATO agieren. Deutschland hingegen ist als europäische Führungsmacht auf geopolitische Relevanz bedacht, ohne sich von der NATO abzusetzen. Im Gegenteil, Kanzlerin Merkel betrachtet – wohl auch als Antwort an Macron – die transatlantische Verankerung mehr denn je als Geschäftsgrundlage deutscher Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik. Sie hat sich dazu am 27. November vor dem Bundestag absolut bekenntnishaft geäußert

Wo will sich von der Leyen bei solcher Polarisierung mit ihrer „Sprache der Macht“ einsortieren? Auf einem dritten Weg als dritte Kraft? Zweifel sind angebracht, dass die Kommission in Gänze ihren Ehrgeiz teilt.

Nach oben offene Eskalationsskala

Die neue Kommissionspräsidentin verfolgt offenkundig vor allem ein Ziel: das Nachzügler-Dasein der EU zu beenden. Sie soll fortan in der Lage sein, um Pfründe und Einflusssphären mitzubieten, im Nahen und Mittleren Osten ebenso wie in der Asiatisch-Pazifischen Region. Verteidigungsministerin Kramp-Karrenbauer hat bekanntlich im Blick auf Deutschland Ähnliches empfohlen. Man solle sich in die aufgeheizte Systemrivalität zwischen den USA und China einklinken. Bleibt zu hoffen – sollte von der Leyen mit ihrer „wahrhaft geopolitischen Kommission“ ebenfalls darauf aus sein –, dass in Brüssel darüber Klarheit herrscht, was das bedeutet – worauf man sich einlässt. Die EU würde nicht als neutraler Akteur in indopazifischen Raum Präsenz zeigen, sondern als Partner der USA, als Partei in einem Konflikt mit einer nach oben offenen Eskalationsskala.

Wieder einmal zeigt sich, was für von der Leyens Begriff von Geopolitik schon als Verteidigungsministerin prägend war. Sie gibt einer räumlichen Dimension den Vorzug, der Suche nach Eingreif- und Einsatzgebieten für ein vor allem militärisches Engagement weltweit. Man denke an ihren Auftritt vor der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz Ende Januar 2014, als es hieß, Deutschland müsse bereit sein, sich außen- und sicherheitspolitisch früher, entschiedener und substanzieller einzubringen als bisher. Augenscheinlich soll das nun auch für eine EU gelten, die der Maxime gehorcht: Mehr Geopolitik wagen, heißt machtpolitisch wirksam sein.

Nur ein Aufguss

Warum nicht nach all den Erfahrungen, die es mit Geopolitik im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert gegeben hat, einmal einen Ansatz vorziehen, der frei von Herrschaftswillen und machtpolitischem Kalkül ist? Warum nicht angesichts der gescheiterten Syrien-Politik des Westens als EU ein Wiederaufbauprogramm für Syrien auflegen, das keine Vorbedingungen kennt und allein den Menschen in diesem Land zugute kommt? Wo man doch sonst menschenrechtlich unschlagbar sein will.

Weshalb nicht eine Friedensinitiative für den Jemen anstoßen, die Saudi-Arabien in die Schranken weist und sich der Konfliktmoderation durch die Vereinten Nationen anschließt. Warum nicht EU-Aufnahmeverhandlungen mit Albanien und Nordmazedonien ausnahmsweise einmal nicht mit der machtpolitischen Begründung versehen, dass sich sonst Russland und China dieser Länder annehmen?

Statt von einer „Sprache der Macht“ zu schwadronieren, könnte von der Leyen einen anderen Ton anschlagen. Wie wäre es mit einem Bewusstsein dafür, was „geopolitischen Denken“ von Großmächten bis in die Gegenwart hinein alles angerichtet hat – in Indochina, im Irak, in Afghanistan, in Libyen, in Syrien, auf dem Balkan, in Korea, in der Ukraine.

Von Emmanuel Macrons Idee einer „Neugründung Europas“ ist von der Leyen weit entfernt. Was ihr vorschwebt, ist der (wievielte?) Aufguss geopolitischen Denkens. Eine Politik der westlichen Restauration, die von der Realitäten – auch denen innerhalb der EU – schon bald korrigiert werden dürfte.

Interview | „Erst mal den Finanzsektor vergesellschaften“

 Cache   
Grace Blakeley weiß, warum für so viele Millennials der Sozialismus auf einmal alternativlos ist
„Erst mal den Finanzsektor vergesellschaften“

Grace Blakeley ist Ökonomin und erst 26, aber auf bestem Wege, in Großbritannien zur Stimme einer Generation zu werden: jener Millennials nämlich, die überzeugt sind, dass in einem der kapitalistischsten Länder der Erde die Zeit reif für den demokratischen Sozialismus ist.

der Freitag: Frau Blakeley, Sie werden als führende Vertreterin des „millennial socialism“ gehandelt. Wie kommt es, dass gerade so viele junge Leute den Sozialismus für sich entdecken? Und dass junge Frauen, man denke an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, diese Bewegung anführen?

Grace Blakeley: Nun, warum sollten wir jungen Leute den Kapitalismus unterstützen, wenn wir davon ausgehen können, dass wir in unserem Leben nie irgendeine Form von Kapital besitzen werden?

Nicht aus materiellem Interesse, okay. Aus ideologischen Gründen vielleicht?

Na klar! Vielleicht stehen deshalb vor allem Frauen an der Spitze dieser Bewegung, weil die Logik des Kapitalismus, das „Konkurriere oder stirb“, immer weniger junge Leute im Allgemeinen und junge Frauen im Besonderen überzeugt.

Warum ist die Renaissance des Sozialismus gerade in den USA und Großbritannien so stark?

Ein Grund sind die Hauspreise. Es ist für die jungen Leute in diesen Ländern klar, dass sie nie Wohnungseigentum besitzen werden. Dazu kommt, dass die meisten jungen Menschen nicht damit rechnen, dass es für sie eine Altersversorgung geben wird. Warum sollten wir ein System stützen, das uns keine Perspektive bietet?

Der Kapitalismus hat für Ihre Generation seine Aura der Alternativlosigkeit verloren.

In der Tat. Mark Fisher meinte ja, dass es in den 1990er und nuller Jahren einfacher gewesen sei, sich das Ende der Welt vorzustellen als das Ende des Kapitalismus. Für uns gilt das nicht mehr: Wenn wir uns ein Weiterleben auf diesem Planeten vorstellen wollen, dann ist klar, dass das mit diesem Wirtschaftssystem nicht gehen wird.

Hat Labour bei den Wahlen in Großbritannien eine Chance?

Ich bin überzeugt, dass Labour die Wahlen gewinnen wird. Es geht dieses Mal um sehr viel! Uns bleiben zehn Jahre, um eine Lösung für die Klimakrise zu finden. Wenn die nächste Regierung fünf Jahre hält, dann ist die Hälfte der Zeit um, die wir noch haben, um unsere Wirtschaft zu dekarbonisieren.

Und der Brexit?

Die Tories versuchen, die Wahl zu einem Votum über den Brexit zu machen, aber die Leute haben vom Brexit einfach die Schnauze voll. Deswegen fährt Labour einen Wahlkampf, in dem es um Ungleichheit geht, Umwelt, das staatliche Gesundheitssystem, den Wohlfahrtsstaat – all die Dinge, die den Menschen nach einem Jahrzehnt der Austeritätspolitik und Lohnstagnation am Herzen liegen.

In Deutschland gibt es viele, die sich mit Corbyns Brexit-Position schwertun: Warum kann er denn nicht einfach sagen, wir bleiben in der EU, und basta?

Nun, Corbyn ist doch mittlerweile ziemlich nahe an der „Remain“-Position, wenn er sagt, Labour wird ein zweites Referendum abhalten. Aber es gibt eine Tradition der EU-Skepsis in der britischen Linken, bei Leuten wie Tony Benn: Die hatten gute Gründe, gegen einen Beitritt zum Binnenmarkt zu sein. Diese Argumente gelten immer noch, ich würde sogar sagen, heute mehr als damals: Wenn man sich anguckt, wie die Eurozone auf die Krise reagiert hat, wie sie ihren Mitgliedern Austerität aufzwingt und Staatshilfen beschränkt.

Viele Linke sagen, die EU braucht es, um mit den USA oder China mithalten zu können.

Ich denke, wenn das Ziel die Machtprojektion Europas auf globaler Ebene ist, also eine Art linkes imperialistisches Projekt, dann bedient das die Interessen des Kapitals, aber nicht die arbeitender Menschen. Im Grunde ist es ja so: All die Institutionen, die die Globalisierung in den letzten Jahrzehnten gestützt haben, sind in der Krise: die WTO, die Weltbank, der IWF, und eben auch die EU.

Zur Person

Grace Blakeley, 26, hat in Oxford Philosophy, Politics, Economics sowie African Studies studiert, bevor sie für die Labour-nahe Denkfabrik IPPR zu arbeiten begann und Mitglied der Ideenwerkstatt Labour Policy Forum wurde. Für Labour macht die aktuell Wahlkampf, ist außerdem Wirtschaftskommentatorin der Wochenzeitung New Statesman . Ihr Buch Stolen. How to save the world from financialisation (dt. „Wie wir die Welt vor der Finanzialisierung retten“) erschien im September in Großbritannien

In Ihrem Buch „Stolen. How to save the world from financialisation“ schreiben Sie, dass 2008 ein ganzes System zusammengebrochen ist, ohne dass ein neues schon entstanden wäre.

Ja, die Krise im Jahr 2008 war ja nicht nur eine Bankenkrise, sondern ein Symptom dafür, dass ein Wachstumsmodell zu Ende geht, ein Akkumulationsregime, das ich „finanz-geleitetes Wachstum“ nenne. Wenn man sich die Geschichte des Kapitalismus in den letzten 100 Jahren ansieht, gibt es immer wieder Krisen, aus denen neue Wachstumsmodelle mit ihren jeweiligen Institutionen entstehen, deren eigene Widersprüche früher oder später zu neuen Krisen führen: Das war so mit dem Laissez-faire-Kapitalismus am Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts, der in der Großen Depression zusammenbricht, genauso mit der sozialdemokratischen „Goldenen Ära“ des Kapitalismus, die in den 1970ern mit dem System von Bretton Woods kollabiert. Aus einer Dekade der Krise ist damals das entstanden, was ich „finanz-geleitetes Wachstum“ nenne, dessen innere Widersprüche nun eben dazu geführt haben, dass es 2008 in die Krise geraten ist.

Können wir nicht einfach zum Goldenen Zeitalter des Kapitalismus zurückkehren?

Diese Art der keynesianischen Nostalgie war typisch für die Linke, bis, ja, eigentlich bis Jeremy Corbyn und Bernie Sanders auf den Plan traten. Aber ich denke nicht, dass das möglich ist. Ich bin überzeugt, dass wir die Herausforderungen, vor denen wir heute stehen – Klimakrise, Ungleichheit, Armut, Verschuldung – nur bewältigen können, indem wir die produktiven Ressourcen vergesellschaften, sodass jede und jeder einen Anteil an den Wirtschaftsressourcen besitzt, und ein Mitspracherecht.

Klingt nach Sozialismus.

Allerdings!

Wie stellen Sie sich den Weg dorthin vor?

Ich habe in meinem Buch versucht, die Widersprüche der gegenwärtigen Wachstumsphase zu beschreiben und zu sehen, wie die Linke sie nutzen kann. Eine sozialistische Regierung müsste die Banken angreifen, wie Margaret Thatcher die Gewerkschaften attackiert hat. Natürlich kann der Sozialismus nicht per Dekret eingeführt werden, aber wer den Staat kontrolliert, kann den Faktor Arbeit ermächtigen, bis zu einem Punkt, an dem Sozialismus vorstellbar, wenn nicht unausweichlich wird.

Und dann?

Ein erster Schritt bestünde darin, den Finanzsektor zu vergesellschaften. Wir leben in einem finanz-geleiteten Wirtschaftssystem, also wäre der beste Weg dazu, Eigentum zu vergesellschaften, die Kontrolle über das Finanzsystem zu übernehmen: indem wir den privaten Finanzsektor stärker regulieren und einen öffentlichen Finanzsektor aufbauen, mit staatlichen Investitionsbanken, wie es sie in Deutschland gibt, und einem „People’s Asset Manager“, einem Volksvermögensverwalter, der unser Kollektivvermögen verwaltet. Im Grunde geht es um die Schwächung des Finanzkapitals auf der einen und um die Stärkung des Faktors Arbeit auf der anderen Seite, bis die Vergesellschaftung des größten Teils der Produktionsmittel vorstellbar wird.

Sie haben das Zitat getwittert: „Enviromentalism without class politics is just gardening.“

Ja, das ist von meinem Freund James Medway. Die Ökobewegung bestand in der Vergangenheit nun mal vor allem aus weißen Mittelschichtlern, die sich für mehr Recycling einsetzten. Heute gibt es eine Linke, die Umweltaktivismus mit Klassenanalyse verbindet: Wir wissen, dass die Klimakrise vor allem von den Reichen verursacht wurde, weil die am meisten CO₂ in die Atmosphäre blasen. Dass Konzerne mit fossilen Brennstoffen Milliarden verdient haben, obwohl sie seit den 1960ern wussten, was für Folgen das hat. Und dass die ärmeren Regionen der Erde am stärksten von den Folgen der Klimakrise betroffen sein werden. Aber all der Umweltaktivismus bleibt ein moralistisches Randphänomen, wenn er nicht auf einer Klassenkoalition aufbaut: einer sozialen Bewegung, die dadurch entsteht, dass die Leute davon überzeugt sind, dass Veränderung nötig ist, aber auch wissen, welche potenziellen positiven Auswirkungen die haben wird.

Dem Green New Deal?

Ja, der Green New Deal ist ein Weg, den Übergang zu einer emissionsfreien Gesellschaft mit der Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen zu verbinden, mit öffentlichen Investitionen, Vergesellschaftungen, Investitionen in öffentliche Daseinsvorsorge und so weiter. Den Green New Deal werden die Reichen bezahlen, durch höhere Steuern, während alle, die nicht von Vermögen, sondern von ihrer Arbeit leben, davon profitieren.

Die deutsche Regierung hat gewarnt, in Sachen Klima sei nur Zaghaftes möglich, weil es sonst zu sozialen Verwerfungen kommen würde. Und dann hat sie ein Klimapaket geschnürt, das die Reichen schont und die Ärmsten am härtesten trifft.

Tja, die deutsche Regierung will die Steuern auf die Reichen nicht erhöhen und keine neuen Schulden machen. Die Schwarze Null ist eine Selbstverpflichtung, nichts grundlegend daran zu ändern, wie die Gesellschaft funktioniert.

Wegen der Schwarzen Null plant die Bundesregierung jetzt einen Klimafonds, in dem Private ihr Geld anlegen, aber der Staat die Zinsen garantiert.

Das macht doch keinen Sinn. Deutschland kann sich zu negativen Zinsen verschulden, das heißt, ihr könnt daran verdienen, dass ihr euch Geld borgt, das ist doch Wahnsinn! Im Ernst, der Privatsektor wird das nicht stemmen können. Private Anleger investieren, um über die nächsten ein oder zwei Jahre eine Rendite zu erzielen. In der Geschichte waren es nie private Anleger, die strukturelle Transformationen einer Volkswirtschaft oder Großprojekte geschultert haben, das waren immer schuldenfinanzierte staatliche Investitionen, sei es für einen Krieg oder den New Deal, für ein Konjunkturpaket oder die Mondlandung.

Schule | Was soll die Gleichmacherei?

 Cache   
Markus Söders Entscheidung, nicht an der Vereinheitlichung der Bildungsstandards mitzuwirken, ist richtig
Was soll die Gleichmacherei?

Markus Söder, Bayerns Ministerpräsident von der CSU, liegt diesmal richtig. Sein Land will wie Baden-Württemberg nicht mehr beim Nationalen Bildungsrat mitmachen. Söder fürchtet, dass die Vereinheitlichung von Bildungsstandards zu einem „Berliner Abitur“ führen könnte. Recht hat er. Irgendwo in der Mitte müsste man sich ja treffen – heute Mittelmaß, bald Mittelmäßigkeit?

Umgekehrt haben wir Berliner eine Heidenangst, das Abitur nach bayrischem Standard könnte sich durchsetzen! Auch vor den schlauen Sachsen hat unsereins Respekt. Ostdeutsche Bundesländer absolvieren das Abitur in der Regel in 12 Jahren. Im Westen dagegen ist die G8-Einführung gehörig gescheitert. Neuerungen schlagen meist fehl, wenn sie nur aufgestülpt wurden, und nicht regional, kulturell oder historisch gewachsen sind.

Überhaupt: Warum sollten Schülerinnen und Schüler an der Ostsee das Gleiche lernen wie die im Alpenvorland? Gerade das Vertiefen des Spezifischen ist doch die Chance, dass individuell Erlerntes flexibel angewandt und produktiv ausgetauscht wird. Deutschland ist eine vielfältige Nation. Das ist erfreulich und eine Herausforderung. Die Gesellschaft ist typisch deutsch, mancherorts vor allem migrantisch geprägt, einige Gegenden sind strukturschwach oder immer noch traditionell verhaftet. Es gibt landauf, landab verschiedene Schulformen und Unterrichtskonzepte, keine Lehrerin ist wie die andere. Was soll die Gleichmacherei? Nur damit ein Kind aus Berlin-Kreuzberg nicht sitzenbleibt, wenn die Eltern nach Bamberg ziehen?

Übrigens: Man kriegt auch in Hamburg oder Hessen nichts geschenkt. Das Bildungswesen ist aber kein Konzern im globalen Wettbewerb. Weshalb auch internationale Vergleichstests wie Pisa keinen Sinn machen. Sind wir wie China? Nein.

Die „Süd-Länder“ fordern nun ihre Kompetenz zurück. Das ist gut so. Ob Schullaufbahn in der schwäbischen Provinz oder in einem sozialen Bremer Brennpunkt – zur Vorbereitung auf die Uni sind die Brückenkurse sowieso hilfreicher. Ein Staatsvertrag, wie jetzt vorgeschlagen, wird weiter nichts lösen, solange man die Probleme fehlinterpretiert.

Interview | „Die EU ist an allem schuld“

 Cache   
Das britische Theaterkollektiv Gob Squad wird 25 und hat es kaum bemerkt, so sehr nervt der Brexit
„Die EU ist an allem schuld“

Die Feierlichkeiten zum Jubiläum fallen bescheiden aus für das siebenköpfige Team – der Brexit deprimiert, der Kampf um Fördergelder für ein neues Projekt ging leider nicht gut aus. Für manche heißt das: wieder bei Lieferando jobben.

Ein Treffen mit Sean Patten und Johanna Freiburg auf einen Tee, ein kurzes Innehalten inmitten des großen kapitalistischen Überlebenskampfs.

der Freitag: Rhetorische Frage. Haben Sie es auch so satt, das mit dem Brexit?

Sean Patten: Ja, es ist wie ein Horrorfilm, der nie endet. Ich glaube auch, die Leute in Großbritannien wollen es nur noch hinter sich bringen. Andererseits: Der Brexit könnte langfristig sogar gut sein, weil Großbritannien endlich feststellen wird, dass seine Zeit als Imperialmacht abgelaufen ist und dass es sich als kleines, unbedeutendes Land begreifen muss.

Johanna Freiburg: Ich finde es nicht langweilig. Ich habe mir lange vorgestellt, jetzt würde die Queen einschreiten und den Brexit canceln. Ich habe diese „Deus ex Machina“-Fantasie, wo der Austritt einfach nicht stattfindet.

Ihr Brexit-Abend „I Love You, Goodbye“ wirkt wie eine Revue dieser Gefühle ...

Freiburg: Der Brexit war unsere Inspiration, ja, aber es geht vielmehr um Herkunft und Zugehörigkeit. Wir inszenieren das Stück als eine Art „Britisches Parlament trifft Kochsendung“.

Dabei sind weder Deutschland noch Großbritannien besonders renommiert für ihre Küche ...

Patten: Trotzdem ist Essen Teil unseres Heimatgefühls. Keine*r von uns hat eine besondere Leidenschaft für Fußballteams und wir alle haben ein sehr ambivalentes Verhältnis zu einer Nationalfahne und Staatsangehörigkeit.

Freiburg: Gelinde ausgedrückt!

Der Titel klingt wie eine kulturelle Scheidung. Was würden Sie vermissen?

Freiburg: Was am meisten betroffen macht, ist der Verlust einer europäischen Idee. Als wir studierten, hatten wir das Gefühl, wir könnten überallhin. Genau das haben wir gemacht. Dass mein Sohn nicht im selben Geist aufwachsen wird, ist traurig.

Patten: Damals dachten wir, das europäische Projekt wäre eine fortschreitende Entwicklung. Heute sieht man, dass das Zusammenrücken nicht selbstverständlich ist. Man muss darum kämpfen und kann auch verlieren.

Wie „entfickt“ man den Brexit? Im August eröffneten Sie die Spielzeit des Frankfurter Mousonturms. Dort trug der Titel die Ergänzung „Unfuck My Brexit Edition“.

Freiburg: Es war Teil des Festivals „Unfuck My Future“. Die Idee ist: Wenn du bereit bist, mich richtig kennenzulernen, obwohl wir uns unterscheiden – dann erst wird Gemeinsamkeit möglich.

Patten: Um einen Brexit zu „entficken“, muss man verstehen, warum die Leute so gewählt haben. Ich war im Sommer bei Verwandten in Thanet in Kent zu Besuch – eine Brexit-Hochburg, wo Nigel Farage zur Wahl angetreten ist. Es gab einen starken Gestank von Meeresalgen, der über die Stadt wehte. Meine Tante meinte, früher hätten die Bauern die Algen als Dünger benutzt. Heute dürften sie das aber nicht mehr. Das ist das Problem: Jeder Missstand soll angeblich mit der EU zu tun haben.

Sind nur die Tanten für den Brexit oder auch alte Freunde?

Patten: Wenn wir Familie und Freund*innen besuchen, sehen wir, wie stark sich die Orte sowohl in Nord- als auch in Südengland verändert haben. Die meisten Läden sind geschlossen, erst wurden sie durch Charity-Shops ersetzt, jetzt schließen selbst die. Zurückgeblieben sind mit Brettern vernagelte Schaufenster oder kaputte Hüllen von verlassenen Einkaufspassagen. Wo einst das lebendige Zentrum eines Ortes war, ist jetzt eine Geisterstadt. Die Menschen dort – unsere Familien – machen für den Niedergang ihrer Heimatorte die EU verantwortlich. Wir streiten leidenschaftlich, wir verstehen aber auch den Wunsch nach Veränderung. Wir haben Freund*innen, die für „Leave“ gestimmt haben, motiviert aus einer Anti-Globalisierungs-Haltung heraus. Sie sagen, dass die EU im Interesse des Kapitals gegründet wurde. Im Zentrum hätten nie die kleinen Leute oder der Schutz der Verbraucher gestanden. Und wenn wir an Griechenland denken, ist das eine ziemlich überzeugende Argumentation.

Zu den Personen

Gob Squad, gegründet 1994, ist ein britisch-deutsches Performance-Kollektiv. Ständige Mitglieder: Johanna Freiburg, Sean Patten, Berit Stumpf, Sarah Thom, Bastian Trost und Simon Will (Freiburg und Stumpf gehören auch zu She She Pop). Bekannt wurden sie 1997 mit einem Live-Warte-Tanz auf der X. documenta in Kassel

Dieses Jahr wird Gob Squad 25 Jahre alt. Wie feiern Sie diesen Anlass?

Freiburg: Wissen Sie, als Sie nach diesem Interview gefragt haben, fiel es mir überhaupt erst wieder ein! Wir haben unser 20-jähriges Jubiläum groß gefeiert, dieses Jahr sollten wir wenigstens was essen gehen, Sean.

Patten: Ehrlich gesagt war es ein komisches Jahr für uns. Wir haben Fördermittel für ein Projekt nicht bekommen. Zum Jubiläum wurden wir daran erinnert, dass nichts selbstverständlich ist, dass das Leben als zeitgenössischer Künstler immer noch ein prekäres ist.

Es gab aber Höhepunkte: Inszenierungen an der Volksbühne und im Schauspiel Köln, eine Einladung zum Theatertreffen ...

Freiburg: Das Schauspiel Köln und die Volksbühne haben für uns gut funktioniert, weil wir unser eigenes Ding machen durften, aber mit einem größeren Budget und einem neuen Publikum. Wir sind allerdings auch in der freien Szene glücklich, das hat mit den Erwartungen des Publikums zu tun. Es ist häufig aufgeschlossener für ungewöhnliche Formate. Was es nicht braucht: ein Scheiß-Bühnenportal wie an den meisten Stadttheatern.

Patten: Ich wollte aber schon immer etwas im Friedrichstadt-Palast inszenieren. Es hat mich sehr geärgert, dass René Pollesch und Fabian Hinrichs schneller waren.

Haben Sie Nebenjobs, weil es so prekär läuft?

Freiburg: Einige Mitarbeiter*innen arbeiten zwischen Projekten bei Lieferando. Wir können es uns nicht leisten, sie ganzjährig zu beschäftigen, obwohl wir zum Teil seit 25 Jahren zusammenarbeiten. Fällt eine Förderung aus, trifft es sie besonders hart. Manche von uns unterrichten an Universitäten.

Patten: Aber wir reden hier darüber, wie es möglich ist, innerhalb des Systems zu überleben! Das ist problematisch, denn es funktioniert nicht! Es ist brutal und unmenschlich. Die Gesellschaft, wie sie ist, die EU in der bestehenden Form kann so nicht weitergehen. Es ist abgefuckt und wir müssen es „entficken“. Wir alle finden Wege, uns in der bestehenden Welt einzurichten, halten fest an Privilegien, wollen nichts von einer drastischen Veränderung hören. Die Angst ist verständlich, aber wir müssen anfangen, Alternativen zu denken und zu leben. Unser Weg war es, ein Kollektiv mitten im kapitalistischen System zu gründen.

Ist Berlin denn als Basislager überhaupt noch attraktiv?

Freiburg: Die Situation auf dem Wohnungsmarkt macht das Leben für Künstler*innen in Berlin zunehmend schwierig. Ein Mitglied unserer Gruppe ist aktuell von Entmietung bedroht. Gob Squad ist von den Gewerbemieten betroffen, diese unterliegen bislang besonders wenig Schutz. Wir haben Glück und können unser Büro in Kreuzberg zahlen, aber wie lange noch? Unser altes Büro an der Torstraße wird aktuell für 3.500 Euro neu vermietet!

Es ist erfrischend, wie Gob Squad mit Tiefpunkten umgeht ...

Patten: Es ist unmöglich, 25 Jahre einen Hit nach dem nächsten rauszuhauen. Klar, man will immer, dass das nächste Projekt großartig wird. Dazu kommt, dass 95 Prozent der öffentlichen Fördermittel nicht an freie Künstler*innen gehen, sondern an die Stadttheater.

Freiburg: Und dabei gehören wir zu den Erfolgreichsten in unserer Nische und bekommen den Löwenanteil der Gelder.

Kann sich jemand aus der Gruppe vorstellen, zurückzugehen?

Patten: Sharon (Smith, Anm. d. Red.) ist gerade zurückgekehrt. Sie unterrichtet an der Universität von Plymouth. Sarah Thom würde gerne mehr in Großbritannien arbeiten. Sie möchte vielleicht eines Tages ganz zurück. Der Brexit ist für uns ein Grund, die Zusammenarbeit mit der Kunstszene dort zu verstärken.

TikTok ist aktuell die angesagteste App der Welt. Vielleicht auch die traurigste? Ein Selbstversuch
Schnurz rulez

Sollten Sie noch nie von TikTok gehört haben, dann kennen Sie höchstwahrscheinlich die süßen Zwillinge Lisa und Lena nicht, auch nicht dieses tanzende Frettchen, das alle so lieben, und Sie haben verpasst, was Will Smith mit kleinen Teigtaschen anstellen kann. Sie sind dann nicht einer von einer Milliarde Nutzer*innen. Vielleicht brauchen Sie sich darüber aber auch nicht weiter grämen, denn: „TikTok ist schon kein Trend mehr“, behauptet zumindest meine Tochter, zwölf Jahre alt. Sie weiß fast immer alles besser als ich. Stimmt ihre Einschätzung auch hier?

Ich selbst gehöre nicht mehr ganz zur Generation X und bin ein bisschen zu alt, um ein richtiger Millennial zu sein, aber TikTok soll doch die aufregendste App der Welt sein. In jedem Fall gehört sie zu den wertvollsten. Auf 75 Milliarden Dollar beläuft sich der Schätzwert der App, die vor allem von Teenies benutzt wird und deren Erfinder ByteDance eine Tech-Company aus Peking ist und somit das erste soziale Netzwerk, das global eine so immense Größe hat und nicht aus dem Silicon Valley gesteuert wird. Ist TikTok gefährlich? Die US-Regierung sieht sich jedenfalls bedroht und prüft gerade, ob China die Karaokeapp zu Spionagezwecken benutzt.

TikTok funktioniert so, dass Teenies weltweit 15-sekündige Clips von sich selbst online stellen. Oft wird einem Lied durch Lippensynchronisation die Ehre erwiesen, dazu getanzt oder ein Streich gespielt. Man kann kommentieren, teilen und natürlich liken. TikTok soll sehr, sehr süchtig machen.

An dem Tag, an dem ich das TikTok-Land zum ersten Mal betrete, stopfen zwei Jugendliche ungefähr fünfhundert Mentos in ein mit Cola gefülltes Aquarium, sodass eine Fontäne in einem riesigen Strahl gen Himmel schießt. Ich sehe, wie psychedelisch es aussieht, wenn man Rasierschaum in einen Croc-Schuh sprüht, dann hineintritt und der Schaum durch die Öffnungen nach außen quillt. Candy von Doja Cat ist gerade sehr beliebt, denn ganz viele junge Mädchen lassen ihn laufen und machen eine Mini-Playback-Show dazu. Jeder kennt hier die Geschichte des Rappers Lil Nas X, dessen Sommerhit Old Town Road zuerst nur ein TikTok-Meme war und danach länger als jedes andere Lied jemals zuvor auf Platz eins der US-Charts stand. Viele, das merkt man sofort, wollen auch selber gerne berühmt sein und bemühen sich um das entsprechende Following. Es gibt aber auch die, die nicht ganz so lustig, nicht ganz so dünn, aber dafür irgendwo am Arsch der Heide dieses eine Lied nachmachen, nachts, neben dem Kuhstall. Es wird auf TikTok Alltagskultur mit einer unverstellten Entspanntheit und Lässigkeit vorgetragen, die man so vielleicht noch nie gesehen hat: maximal sinnlos, langweilig, dann plötzlich wieder zum Schießen – und fast alles natürlich, total pubertär. Ich bin extrem gehyped, weil immer so viel passiert, aber wohl auch, weil man ganz allein steht vor diesem Meer aus Memes. Denn das ist wohl das Radikalste an der App, es geht hier nicht mehr um deine Freunde. Anders als bei allen anderen sozialen Netzwerken richtet sich jeglicher Inhalt immer potenziell an das komplette Publikum. Der Schritt zu TikTok bedeutet auch der Schritt raus aus der Filterblase, die alle Leute, die nicht deine Freunde sind und nicht deiner Meinung, tendenziell von dir fernhält.

„Facebook? Voll peinlich!“

Möchte man mit grobem Besteck durch die sogenannten Generationen wühlen und ihnen anhand ihrer bevorzugten sozialen Räume einen Charakter zuweisen, dann waren es wohl die Babyboomer, die sich noch im gemütlichen Sport- und Schützenverein trafen, die Generation X fand sich dann erstmals im damals noch viel utopischeren und weniger kommerziellen Internet zusammen, sie entdeckte alsbald Facebook für sich und dort ein neues Verhältnis zur eigenen Identität und dem, was sich da mit ihr machen ließ. Zusammen mit den nachfolgenden Millennials professionalisierten sie das Private und kuratieren sehr ernsthaft bis heute das auf Hochglanz polierte Selbst. Meine Tochter weiß: „Facebook? Voll peinlich!“

Ihre Generation interessiert sich jetzt wieder für Spaß. Den Eindruck gewinnt man sofort, wenn man sich mit scrollendem Daumen durch das TikTok bewegt. Singen, Tanzen, Witze, in oft sehr ausgefuchsten Lo-Fi-Filmproduktionen mit brachialen Schnitten und Effekten machen sie sich über sich selbst und andere lustig. Dass das wild und anarchisch wirkt, hat sicher auch damit zu tun, dass die Nutzer zwischen 14 und 20 Jahre alt sein sollen. Den Leuten scheint hier auf den ersten Blick vieles wohltuend schnurzegal.

Man wird aber auch nostalgisch. Erinnerungen werden wach an die ersten verrückten Tage von Youtube, das 2005 online ging und wo ständig Dinge passierten, die man nicht erwartet und sich nicht einmal vorgestellt hatte. Fremde Leute, die überall auf der Welt seltsame, kranke Sachen machten. Sowohl bei TikTok als auch bei Youtube sind Pranks, Fails und Erklärvideos sehr beliebt. Man sieht junge, unbekannte Handwerker, die mitten im Rohbau stehen und tanzen, Polizistinnen, die in Würzburg was singen, Getränkemarktmitarbeiter, die sich gemeinsam einen Sketch ausgedacht haben. Haufenweise normale Leute, die alberne Sachen machen. Denen, das ist immer am schönsten, man dabei zusehen darf, wie ihnen auf angenehme Art die Pointe verrutscht. Ein bisschen wie Privatfernsehen. Und ein bisschen ist das auch eine neue wilde Volkskunst.

Aber wie ungeregelt ist das eigentlich wirklich? Und was soll das ganze #deutschland im TikTok? Während ich mich hier rumtreibe, ist das beliebteste Hashtag #okboomer, unter dem man sich fast durchgehend völlig harmlos gegen die Alten positioniert. Als weitere „angesagte“ Hashtags werden direkt danach #60sekundendeutschland, dann #dreamsfordeutschland angeboten, erstaunliche 14,5 Millionen Mal wurde scheinbar #bestofdeutschland unter den Videos verzeichnet. Kommen die 14- bis 20-Jährigen alleine auf die Idee, ihre ganze Deutschlandliebe hier auszudrücken? Wer initiiert so was?

Der Guardian berichtete gerade, dass ByteDance seine Moderatoren anweist, Material zu zensieren, das der chinesischen Regierung nicht gefallen könnte. Homosexualität darf hier auch nicht ausgedrückt werden. In Deutschland folgen gefühlt auf ein Video aus Nordamerika fünf aus Deutschland, aus Indien eins, aus China kam keins. Dafür kommt dann der Youtuber Rezo um die Ecke, und auch längst zu Recht vergessene TV-Comedians wie Maddin Schneider oder Matze Knop.

Witze über Greta

Und mit ihnen und vielen anderen Sketchen und schrecklichem #comedy-Zeug auch ein Gefühl aus alter Zeit, das in einem Schwung die Generation Greta und ihre superkorrekten Fridays-for-Future-Genossen*innen, die ja alterstechnisch auch zur Generation TikTok gezählt werden, einfach vergessen macht. Denn hier verhalten sich alle ständig überhaupt nicht korrekt. Sie machen sich über Greta lustig, sie machen sich über Schwule lustig, Weiße appropriieren ständig schwarze Musikkultur. Auf TikTok zertrümmern eine ganze Menge Leute die ihnen zugewiesene Generationsidentität. Eine junge deutsche Mittelschicht gibt sich stattdessen selbst das Bild, das früher das Privatfernsehen genauso von Deutschland gemalt hat: Hier liebt man Comedy, schlechte Witze, bekloppte Wetten und Wettbewerbe.

Am Ende habe ich selbst zwei Videos hochgeladen, sie haben vier Likes bekommen und ich habe sie schnellstens wieder gelöscht, denn man möchte nicht der sein, von dem ein paar junge Leute, die ich im Museum anspreche, sagen: „TikTok, no way, das machen jetzt nur noch Dreißig- oder Vierzigjährige, die imitieren, was Kids früher gemacht haben – voll peinlich.“

Meine kleine Schwester war vor dreißig Jahren fünf Jahre alt und fragte mit großen Augen, wie anstrengend das für die Bands im Radio sein muss, dass sie permanent am anderen Ende des Radios ihre Musik reinspielen. Heute ist wirklich immer jemand da, der einer Milliarde Menschen fünfzehn Sekunden seiner Existenz fast live zur Verfügung stellt. Das Gefühl absoluter Authentizität und totaler Gegenwart bleibt natürlich magisch. Im New Yorker stand kürzlich, das Phänomen TikTok bedeute eine logische Reaktion auf und eine absurde Flucht aus den Massenmedien, denen wir jeden Tag ausgesetzt sind.

Umso verblüffender, dass sich die chinesische Superapp in Deutschland in ein Update von TV total verwandelt, in dem nun endlich jeder Stefan Raab sein darf.

As pessoas estão em uma festa noturna na Praça Tian'anmen para celebrar o 70º aniversário da fundação da República Popular da China (RPC), em Beijing, capital de China, em 1º de outubro de 2019. (Xinhua/Huang Jingwen)

Beijing, 1º dez (Xinhua) -- Um artigo do presidente chinês Xi Jinping sobre defesa, melhora e desenvolvimento do sistema do estado socialista e dos sistemas jurídicos com características chinesas foi publicado neste domingo na 23ª edição da Revista Qiushi deste ano.

No artigo, Xi, também secretário-geral do Comitê Central do Partido Comunista da China (PCC) e presidente da Comissão Militar Central, diz que o sistema do estado socialista e os sistemas jurídicos com características chinesas foram gradualmente formados nas últimas sete décadas desde a fundação da Nova China.

O Partido inteiro deve nutrir uma confiança mais forte no caminho, teoria, sistema e cultura do socialismo com características chinesas, e continuar avançando ao longo do caminho certo, aponta o texto.

A publicação indica que o estado socialista e os sistemas jurídicos com características chinesas foram formados por práticas e explorações de longo prazo.

O novo tipo de sistema de estado fundado pelo PCC permitiu à China criar um milagre do rápido crescimento econômico e estabilidade social de longo prazo, e ofereceu uma nova opção para os países em desenvolvimento alcançarem a modernização, ressalta o presidente.

O artigo salienta que o estado socialista e os sistemas jurídicos com características chinesas são sistemas científicos que foram comprovados pela prática e têm vantagens significativas.

Além de defender e implementar o estado socialista e os sistemas jurídicos com características chinesas, o texto também enfatiza a importância de melhorar e desenvolver os sistemas.

Xi Jinping pede no artigo, esforços constantes para fortalecer a inovação institucional na luz das condições nacionais da China.

@Drusius DIE WELT Älteste Schriftzeichen der Welt in China gefunden Veröffentlicht am 23.04.2003 Von wom 8600 Jahre alte Ritzungen in Schildkrötenpanzern Anzeige Forscher des Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York haben bei Ausgrabungen in Jiahu in der chinesischen Provinz Henan Grabbeigaben gefunden, die 8600 Jahre alte Schriftzeichen enthalten. Es handelt sich um Schildkrötenpanzer mit Einritzungen. Damit wären diese Zeichen mehr als 2000 Jahre älter als Schrifttafeln aus Mesopotamien (im heutigen Irak). Diese galten bislang als älteste Belege für schriftliche Dokumente. Die Archäologen fanden auf den Schildkrötenpanzern in 24 Gräbern insgesamt elf verschiedene Zeichen. Sie zeigen Symbole, die unter anderem sehr stark an die Darstellung von Augen und Fenstern erinnern. Die Forscher halten diese Symbole und andere Ritzungen für Schriftzeichen, weil sie auch jenen Zeichen stark ähneln, die Jahrtausende später während der Shang-Dynastie genutzt wurden und für "Augen" und "Fenster" standen sowie für die Zahlen acht und 20. Erstaunt und etwas verunsichert sind die Forscher allerdings durch die Tatsache, dass zwischen den jetzigen Funden und der Shang-Kultur 5000 Jahre ohne bekannte Schriftzeichen liegen. © Axel Springer SE.

Übersetzung der Inschrift: Tărtăria 5500 v.Chr.: Die erste schriftliche Nachricht in der Geschichte der Menschheit Die Tontafeln von Tărtăria sind drei kleine Tontafeln (möglicherweise Amulette), die im Jahre 1961 in der Ortschaft Tărtăria entdeckt wurden, die heute ein Teil der Gemeinde Săliștea (Kreis Alba) in Rumänien ist. Sie zeigen Vinča-Zeichen, die wichtigste regionale Variante des Donauschrift genannten Zeichensystems, das auch als alteuropäische Schrift bezeichnet wird (auch wenn die Einordnung des Zeichensystems als Schrift umstritten ist). Die Zeichen werden der prähistorischen Vinča-Kultur zugeordnet. Die Tontafeln werden auf etwa 5500–5300 v. Chr. datiert,[1] wurden jüngst allerdings als mögliche Fälschung bezeichnet.[2] Sie werden im Muzeul Național de Istorie a Transilvaniei (Nationalmuseum der Geschichte Siebenbürgens) in Cluj-Napoca (Klausenburg) verwahrt.[3] Inhaltsverzeichnis 1 Die Entdeckung 2 Literatur 3 Weblinks 4 Einzelnachweise Die Entdeckung 1875 entdeckten Archäologen bei Ausgrabungen in Turdaș viele Gegenstände mit bisher unbekannten Symbolen. 1961 entdeckte eine Forschergruppe des Nationalmuseums in Cluj unter der Leitung von Nicolae Vlassa die drei hier beschriebenen Tontafeln.[4] Einer 2013 veröffentlichten These zufolge könnten die Tontafeln von Tărtăria eine Fälschung sein.[2] Literatur A.

3,150 Friday – Finishing the Month Strong on the S&P 500

 Cache   

3,150!  

That's up 150 points (5%) from where we cashed out most of our Member Portfolios in September and, though we missed a 10% pullback right after that – we have now missed a 15% recovery. 

Of course, at the time, I said we COULD go to 3,300 – if there was a China deal and if Brexit didn't get worse and if Q3 Earnings Reports were not a disaster and, so far, the Earnings were NOT a disaster and we keep hearing that a China deal is close and Brexit continues to stumble along so – YAY!!! – I guess…

Wall Street has taken this year’s quarterly profit contractions in stride, largely because companies, for the most part, have managed to beat already low forecasts.  Analysts came into the third quarter expecting profits for the S&P 500 to fall 4%.  With 97% of companies in the index reporting, profits are expected to have declined by 2.3%, with three-quarters of the companies topping very low expectations.

Image result for corporate profitsThere’s no question earnings are challenged,” said David Kelly, chief global strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management. “The market is to some extent coasting off good stable job performance.”  Companies that beat analysts’ forecasts in the third quarter saw an average price increase of 2.2% within the four-day period surrounding their report, according to John Butters, senior earnings analyst at FactSet. That is well above the five-year average price increase of 1% during that same window.

Investors have also been taking it relatively easy on companies that fell short of the mark, according to Butters. Companies that fell short of expectations saw an average price decline of 1.7% during that four-day window. That’s smaller than the five-year average price decrease of 2.6% during that same window for companies falling short of expectations.

Image result for corporate profits"As you can see from the above chart, we began the year down 3.75% in Q1, then gained 3.75% in Q2 and now up 0.25% but those are Q/Q growth numbers coming off a weak Q4 2018 so, overall, we're left down 2.3% on the S&P for the year so far – another down

Trade Talk Tuesday – USMCA (NAFTA), Not China

 Cache   

Image result for usmca cartoon"We might have another trade deal!

Yeah, that's right, I'm going to pretend to be excited about signing the US-Mexico-Canada trade deal and I'm going to pretend it's not just NAFTA with a different name and I'm going to pretend that deal wasn't supposedly all set 18 months ago and is only finally being ratified by Congress in a meaningless gesture that changes nothing.  Of course, it's not ACTUALLY being ratified but – PROGRESS IS BEING MADE – so the market is, of course higher.

Meanwhile, back in the real World, China's Ministry of Commerce says "external rumors" about the trade talks are not accurate and that the "so called" phase-one agreement may not be completed until next year as Beijing presses for greater reductions in tariffs and the Trump Administration pushes back with its own demands.  Trump has, so far, been sticking to his threat that tariffs will INCREASE on Dec 15th – it's very hard to imagine any deal getting done if that happens, as it would then look like China is breaking under Trump's tariff pressure and China would rather walk away than look weak.  

At least Alibaba (BABA) is having a good day, raising $11.2Bn in Hong Kong despite stores being shuttered and the streets smokey with tear gas.  BABA stock popped 6.5% this morning as they raised money on that exchange though that was already anticipated in a weeklong run on their Nasdaq proxy (BABA) – so don't expect the same over here as it came in right around their original HK target of $24, which they then lowered, so they could beat it.

Alibaba’s share sale was the largest offering of any kind in Hong Kong since 2010. The money raised by Alibaba will be added to the company’s cash pile, which is now $43 Billion – enough to buy M, JWN, KSS, BBY, BBBY, LB AND HBI – if they ever want to escape Hong Kong's Democracy and come to America…

Image result for china protest"The Futures are up again – yawn! 

Progress was made on the Trade War – again – as China agreed to raise the penaties they never enforce on IP Theft over the weekend but keep in mind our expectations have been lowered so much that the market is now celbrating SOME progress on a PARTIAL trade deal – 2 years after the fact!  When did we all become such idiots?  Because of the trade progress, Trump has left the Hong Kong protesters out on a limb by refusing (so far) to sign Congresses bill sanctioning China for their brutal crackdown.

Fortunately, Hong Kong citizens weren't waiting for Trump and Putin's approval and they went to the polls this weekend and overhwelmingly voted for pro-Democracy (the thing Trump and Putin are against) candidates who won 90% of the seats up for grabs with a record 71.2% turnout at the polls despite China's voter intimidation tactics.  This is very worrying for Trump and the GOP, who are counting on their own voter intimidation tactics to keep potential Democratic supporters away next November.  

Hong Kong's embattled Government took a page out of Team Trump's playbook and attempted to spin reality with this statement:

"There are various analyses and interpretations in the community in relation to the results, and quite a few are of the view that the results reflect people's dissatisfaction with the current situation and the deep-seated problems in society, (The government) will listen to the opinions of members of the public humbly and seriously reflect."

Gigantic mining botnet unmasked

 Cache   

Includes 500,000 infected machines used to mine cryptocoins (without user knowledge).

The hacker group "Stantinko" already attracted attention with one of the largest botnets in the world due to the theft of credentials, fraud and the manipulation of banners. Researchers at security researcher Eset have recently discovered a new business model for botnet operators: cryptomining on more than 500,000 computers. So that their machinations remain undetected, they camouflage their malicious program on the infected machines. If the person in question opens the Task Manager or if the affected device goes into battery mode, the coinminer from Stantinko shuts itself off and remains invisible.

To conceal the communication, the malicious program works with proxies whose IP address is determined from the description text of Youtube videos. This technique is very sophisticated, because visiting the video platform is not uncommon. Youtube got informed and deleted the videos.

Not surprisingly, the criminals behind Stantinko are looking for new ways to further increase their financial profits through the botnet. Cryptomining is more profitable and harder to track than its old core adware business. With more than half a million infected computers, the cybercriminals will be attracting lucrative revenue. However, the new scam has the disadvantage that the mining of cryptocurrencies consumes enormous system resources, It makes even the opening of the browser a game of patience. Here, the criminals try tricky ways to go to disguise the malicious program from ordinary Internet users. Where previously advertising was only intrusive, the new mesh interferes with even the simplest work.

The alleged cryptocurrency "Onecoin" is at the center of the largest crypto fraud case yet, but the machinations have been discovered. According to investigators hundreds of thousands of investors could have lost more than $ 4 billion through the alleged cryptocurrency, which promised investors quick riches. Where the money has remained is currently unknown.

The main offender is the Bulgarian Ruja Ignatova. In London and elsewhere, she promoted Onecoin as an elegant inventor and made great promises to investors. Onecoin was touted as a "Bitcoin killer". Media gave her the title of "crypto-queen". She allegedly brought hundreds of thousands of people for her money.

Entrepreneur with mafia relationships

Her brother, Konstantin Ignatov, has according to the investigative site Inner City Press at least confessed to American FBI investigators and admitted several offenses in New York, including money laundering and fraud. Many investors are coming from the UK. The BBC has released a major podcast series about the machinations of the alleged cryptocoin inventor, who also allegedly has connections to the Bulgarian mafia.

Despite all this, there is still a website on which Onecoin stirs the advertising drum. It is advertised with slogans like: "Be part of the financial revolution." and Onecoin is "the first transparent, global cryptocurrency for everyone". The advertised digital money promised high returns for investors. It also announced that millions of people in underdeveloped countries in Africa and Asia will have access to financial services.

Onecoin is a pyramid system

Onecoin was and still is not a cryptocurrency, based on the blockchain technology, but a rather simple pyramid scheme: The first investors could make high profits, as more and more investors put money in the system, but in the end are high losses. Although Onecoin denies any illegal activity on the site, such methods are fraudulent.

In 2017, Onecoin is said to have raised more than $ 4 billion from investors worldwide, including some £ 100 million from British citizens. In October 2017 Ruja Ignatova disappeared suddenly, since then she is wanted by the FBI.

ALZHEIMER L'EPIDEMIA SILENZIOSA di Marcello PAMIO Come prevenire e curare la demenza

 Cache   
ALZHEIMER L'EPIDEMIA SILENZIOSA Come prevenire e curare la demenza di Marcello PAMIO (UNO editori www.unoeditori.com) descrive una delle patologie più tremende che l'uomo abbia mai conosciuto: una malattia silente ma in grado di devastare non una persona ma l'intera famiglia!
Il cervello è l'organo più enigmatico e complesso dell'universo e forse proprio per questo è l'unico del corpo umano il cui funzionamento ancora sfugge alla nostra comprensione.
Le cifre che lo descrivono sono a dir poco astronomiche: in un volume di 1.500 centimetri cubi si racchiudono 100.000 milioni di neuroni che utilizzano fino a 19.000 dei 30.000 geni che compongono il genoma umano.

I neuroni si collegano tra loro formando un miliardo di connessioni per ogni millimetro cubo di corteccia cerebrale. Per non parlare delle cellule gliali di supporto che sono addirittura 10 volte tanto. Eppure questa splendida macchina può andare incontro a declino cognitivo e demenza tra cui il morbo di Alzheimer, la più diffusa patologia sopra una certa età.
I malati di Alzheimer al mondo sono 47 milioni e questa cifra è destinata a raddoppiare ogni 20 anni. Quali sono le cause di questa subdola malattia che lentamente cancella la coscienza? È possibile prevenirla e/o curarla?

A rispondere a queste domande una quindicina tra medici e ricercatori, che oltre a dare la loro interpretazione, propongono interessanti strumenti di intervento e percorsi terapeutici.
Con questo libro scopri: quali potrebbero essere le cause scatenanti della demenza; come poter intervenire preventivamente;
i più interessanti percorsi terapeutici naturali... e molto altro ancora.

ALZHEIMER: SINTOMI, DIAGNOSI E PREVENZIONE Scopri come si sviluppa e come si può limitare questa malattia neurodegenerativa

UNA MALATTIA SUBDOLA E INVISIBILE

L'Alzheimer, più che una patologia, potrebbe essere interpretato come una sorta di "meccanismo di difesa". La malattia di Alzheimer può essere definita una "patologia neurologica che viene considerata la principale forma di "demenza" che esordisce, tendenzialmente, nella terza età.
Si manifesta con la perdita graduale e progressiva della memoria, delle facoltà intellettive e, nelle ultime fasi, anche del controllo delle funzioni fisiologiche."
Sembra esserci una predisposizione genetica e una frequente associazione con una forte depressione, non risolta, tra i 50 e i 65 anni. Il 7 aprile 2017 è stata resa nota la scoperta:
"l'origine dell'Alzheimer: non è nell'area del cervello associata alla memoria che va cercato il responsabile del morbo. All'origine della malattia ci sarebbe, invece, la morte dei neuroni nell'area collegata anche ai disturbi dell'umore." Prof. Marcello D'Amelio

Una persona malata di Alzheimer o di una patologia psichiatrica grave come la schizofrenia è pressoché immune dal tumore. Il libro strutturalmente è diviso in 2 parti.
Nella prima parte viene spiegato cos'è e cosa non è l'Alzheimer. La seconda parte risponde ad alcune domande come per esempio: "Qual è la causa o le cause dell'Alzheimer?"; "Esiste una cura?".
L'autore ha intervistato una quindicina di medici e ricercatori con lo scopo di inquadrare il fenomeno nella sua complessità e globalità: vuole condividere queste conoscenze non per dare false illusioni ma per mantenere accesa e viva la fiammella della speranza:
"Se infine teniamo conto che per la medicina ufficiale l'Alzheimer è una patologia neurodegenerativa assolutamente incurabile, per la quale non esiste nessuna cura... cosa rischiamo cambiando visione e prospettiva?" Marcello Pamio

Il cervello, esattamente come per un muscolo, va tenuto costantemente in allenamento con stimoli adeguati (letture, immaginazione, visualizzazione, musica, cruciverba, ecc.) alternati a profondo riposo e a una nutrizione corretta.
Il declino cognitivo è una delle maggiori preoccupazioni della popolazione anziana e il morbo di Alzheimer è la maggiore causa di declino cognitivo correlato all'età.
L'Italia è la prima al mondo per numero di casi. Secondo un nuovo studio la malattia potrebbe essere la terza causa di morte negli Stati Uniti. Inoltre le donne sono l'epicentro di questa epidemia: sono donne il 65% dei pazienti.

Il termine "demenza" viene usato per descrivere un declino delle facoltà mentali abbastanza grave da interferire con la vita quotidiana. La perdita di memoria è solo un esempio di tale declino.
Una persona anziana, anche molto vecchia, non per forza di cose deve conoscere la demenza: infatti in certe popolazioni ultracentenarie come gli Hunza la demenza è sconosciuta.
La malattia prende il nome dal dott. Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915), psichiatra e neuropatologo tedesco che per la prima volta ne 1907 ne descrisse i sintomi e gli aspetti neuropatologici.
La diagnosi precoce è molto importante, non esistono farmaci in grado di fermare e far regredire la malattia per cui tutti i trattamenti oggi disponibili puntano solo al contenimento della sintomatologia con risultati scarsi ma inducendo effetti collaterali.

Una perdita di memoria momentanea o dimenticare qualche fatto della vita non significa avere il morbo di Alzheimer o un altro tipo di demenza!
Una vera demenza interferisce negativamente con la memoria, la comunicazione e il linguaggio, la capacità di concentrarsi e di prestare attenzione, il ragionamento, il giudizio e la percezione visiva.
Se si vuole prevenire la demenza o migliorare la condizione mentale in caso di malattia conclamata, è obbligatorio limitare la fruizione da apparecchi televisivi e dalle varie "diavolerie" elettroniche in generale per far posto ad altre attività dinamiche.
La malattia non fa distinzioni e non risparmia neppure le persone ricche, intelligenti e molto famose tra cui: il filosofo Kant, Emil Cioran, attori come Robin Williams, Peter Falk, Rita Hayworth, Lauretta Masiero, Sean Connery; politici come Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher e molti altri.

Gli otto tipi di danni correlati alla frequenza del 5G (nuovo standard di comunicazione cioè la quinta generazione) sono i seguenti: 1) danni cellulari al DNA (rottura del filamento singolo del DNA, rottura del filamento doppio, ossidazione delle basi del DNA);
2) diminuzione della fertilità maschile e femminile, aumento di aborti spontanei, abbassamento di ormoni come estrogeni, progesterone e testosterone; 3) danni neurologici e neuropsichiatrici; 4) apoptosi e morte cellulare;
5) stress ossidativo e aumento dei radicali liberi (responsabili della maggior parte delle patologie croniche); 6) effetti ormonali; 7) aumento del calcio intracellulare; 8) effetto cancerogeno sul cervello, sulle ghiandole salivari e sul nervo acustico.

Oggi la dieta chetogenica (dr. Joseph Mercola) viene sempre più spesso applicata in patologie neurologiche come la depressione, l'Alzheimer, il Parkinson, ecc.: inoltre bere molta acqua è importante per mantenere in salute il cervello.
Una ricerca che studiava i composti attivi nel tè verde ha stabilito che le catechine contenute non solo sono antiossidanti e neuroprotettive ma addirittura stimolano il cervello a produrre più neuroni.
E' stato dimostrato che il tè verde ha implicazioni interessanti nel trattamento delle malattie neurodegenerative come il morbo di Alzheimer, il morbo di Parkinson e di Huntington.
Non esiste la panacea per tutti i mali dell'uomo e infatti per l'Alzheimer ufficialmente non c'è una cura. La cosa migliore da fare è la prevenzione: prima si interviene e migliori saranno i risultati ottenuti.

Se esiste un filo conduttore che lega tutti gli interventi del libro, sicuramente è il consiglio di CAMBIARE QUANTO PRIMA LO STILE DI VITA!
Per adottare uno stile di vita più salutare bisogna imparare a comprendere quali sono i grassi utili al cervello e quali sono dannosi. Secondo il dott. David Perlmutter l'Alzheimer è prevenibile attraverso una dieta appropriata.

Le diete ad alto contenuto di grassi sono associate a un rischio ridotto del 44%. Questa combinazione, pochi zuccheri e carboidrati e molti grassi salubri, è la chiave di lettura per affrontare non solo l'Alzheimer ma anche il diabete e le malattie cardiache!
Il libro di Neal Barnard Super Cibi per la mente ci indica che per gestire al meglio la salute del proprio cervello, oltre alla ginnastica mentale e una corretta alimentazione, bisogna praticare la ginnastica fisica che è importantissima.

LA SCELTA ANTITUMORE del dott. Giuseppe DI BELLA Prevenzione, terapia farmacologica e stile di vita

 Cache   
LA SCELTA ANTITUMORE Prevenzione, terapia farmacologica e stile di vita di Giuseppe DI BELLA (Macro edizioni www.gruppomacro.com UNO editori www.unoeditori.com) è un libro indispensabile per saperne di più sul Metodo Di Bella, un valido metodo scientifico osteggiato dal sistema.
Ti spiega in cosa consiste oggi la terapia e quali sono i risultati concreti supportati da una documentatissima letteratura scientifica.
La multiterapia ideata dal prof. Luigi Di Bella (padre di Giuseppe) riscuote ampi e autorevoli riconoscimenti internazionali con innumerevoli testimonianze dei miglioramenti dei malati.

Questo è un libro 4D: ovvero un libro che va oltre la carta. Oltre alle pagine da leggere trovi infatti una serie di contenuti multimediali extra di approfondimento.
All'interno del libro ci sono semplici istruzioni per accedere a questi contenuti da qualsiasi dispositivo: PC, tablet, smartphone e smart-TV.
Leggendo questo volume scoprirai: cos'è la multiterapia dei tumori; qual è realmente l'importanza dell'alimentazione e dell'ambiente per la prevenzione e la cura;
quali sono gli agenti cancerogeni interni all'organismo e quali quelli esterni, che possono essere pericolosi per la nostra salute; le possibilità concrete di abbattere l'incidenza, contrastare l'insorgenza e la progressione del tumore.

Lo scopo è aiutarti a districarti tra le informazioni frammentarie o ambigue e a riconoscere quelle utili a identificare le possibili cause, a prevenire o a guarire dalla malattia.
Nel 1996 (dopo gli esiti positivi del Metodo Di Bella) si arrivò alla nota sperimentazione e al suo falli­mento. Ma la falsificazione della sperimentazione (viziata da anomalie e irregolarità che qui vengono documentate) non ha però portato alla delegittimazione del metodo stesso, che è e rimarrà un documen­tato atto di accusa contro la dittatura terapeutica.
I benefici della multiterapia infatti sono avvalorati da un crescente numero di conferme sulle banche dati medico-scientifiche internazionali.

"Non ho il minimo merito nelle ricerche e nelle scoperte di mio padre, mia unica ambizione è diffondere il Suo Metodo, divulgarne la concezione terapeutica, proseguire nella realizzazione del Suo obiettivo primario:
sollevare dalla disperazione e dalla sofferenza, ridare fiducia, sorriso e speranza a tanti sofferenti disperati, riportando la medicina dall'attuale deriva commerciale e speculativa all'antica dignità di arte etica, ippocratica, spirituale, unica Via che attraverso la Verità porta alla Vita." Giuseppe Di Bella



Giuseppe Di Bella dopo la laurea in medicina presso l'Università di Modena nel 1965 ottiene il diploma di specializzazione in ORL (otorinolaringoiatra) nel luglio 1968 presso l'Università di Bologna. Dal marzo 1967 è iscritto all'Albo dei Medici Chirurghi.
È stato primario di chirurgia maxillofacciale e primario ORL nel 1975. Dal 1975 al 1984 è responsabile del servizio ORL presso l'ospedale di Budrio-Bologna. Poi svolge attività di libero professionista.

Dal 1968 ha svolto circa 15.000 interventi in anestesia generale nell'ambito della specialità ORL. È stato correlatore, col professor Luigi Di Bella, della monografia "Cancro, siamo sulla strada giusta?".
Ha partecipato a moltissimi congressi nazionali e internazionali ed ha all'attivo tantissime pubblicazioni tra cui il libro Il Metodo Di Bella.
È il Presidente della "Fondazione G. Di Bella - ONLUS" per lo studio e il trattamento delle patologie neoplastiche e degenerative.

Leggi l'introduzione del libro LA SCELTA ANTITUMORE di Giuseppe Di Bella e scopri un metodo tanto rivoluzionario quanto scomodo:

UNA FIGURA SCOMODA

I CONTENUTI EXTRA DEL LIBRO LA SCELTA ANTITUMORE:
VIDEO-INTERVISTA AL DOTT. DI BELLA; perché ci furono manifestazioni di piazza che chiedevano che venisse approvato il Metodo Di Bella;
la scientificità della cura: le pubblicazioni sulle riviste internazionali; i retroscena della sperimentazione del Metodo Di Bella: le irregolarità e i criteri di arruolamento;
sperimentazione Di Bella: l'inchiesta di Guariniello; i risultati positivi della multiterapia nonostante il boicottaggio; la precocità della diagnosi e il fallimento della chemioterapia;
la carne: pro e contro; i risultati del Metodo Di Bella oggi: l'efficacia della melatonina... e tanto altro!

Secondo il prof. Carlo Ventura (autore della prefazione) "il cancro non è una singola entità ma un gruppo di patologie correlate.
La sua stessa complessità emerge dalle recenti acquisizioni che vedono in alterazioni della capacità differenziativa e proliferativa delle cellule staminali residenti in ogni tessuto del corpo umano una causa fondamentale nella disseminazione metastatica delle neoplasie, al punto di parlare di "cancer stem cells" per identificare una popolazione probabilmente eterogenea di elementi staminali che ha perso la capacità di garantire il potenziale di autoriparazione dei nostri tessuti trasformandosi addirittura in elementi che promuovono una strada spesso di non-ritorno come la diffusione metastatica...
La prevenzione resta sicuramente una strategia essenziale, un approccio così importante in ambito biomedico da essere considerato sempre attuale e necessario anche quando il progresso della terapia e della diagnosi dovesse arrivare a porre risoluzioni definitive, come si spera accada presto per il problema del cancro."

In questa grande opera di Giuseppe Di Bella vengono affrontati con estremo rigore, chiarezza e modernità i temi della prevenzione primaria e secondaria dei tumori.
L'autore si concentra in particolare sull'importanza e sulla possibilità di effettuare una prevenzione farmacologica dell'insorgenza tumorale.
Egli analizza a fondo le strategie introdotte negi ultimi anni, avendo come target molecolare percorsi specifici. Presenta il Metodo Di Bella spiegandone le basi razionali, i percorsi storici, l'iter travagliato a livello istituzionale, le applicazioni nell'oncologia, i risultati ottenuti.
La scelta antitumore è un libro davvero interessante non solo per gli "addetti ai lavori" ma anche per chi vuole approfondire un problema in crescita e drammatico.

Questo libro nasce dalla profonda e sentita esigenza di far risparmiare a tanti gravi sofferenze e/o sollevarli dal tragico calvario del cancro, assolutamente inimmaginabile per chi non lo ha vissuto.
Ha il dovere morale, l'esigenza etica e scientifica di trasmettere, diffondere e valorizzare un patrimonio unico di conoscenze mediche e acquisizioni scientifiche frutto dell'intera vita del padre di Di Bella, totalmente, appassionatamente dedicata alla ricerca, allo studio e al progresso terapeutico.
Citando Sant'Agostino: "Nessuno può essere veramente amico dell'uomo se non è innanzi tutto amico della verità."
Un eminente medico e ricercatore, Sergio Stagnaro, scienziato noto a livello internazionale, definì il prof. Luigi Di Bella "L'ultimo grande clinico, un gigante in un mondo di nani".

Questo "Metodo" creato oltre 40 anni fa dal prof. Di Bella fu così da lui definito: "Essere essenziale più che l'inattuabile e immaginaria uccisione di tutti gli elementi neoplastici, la realizzazione di tutte le condizioni, note, possibili e non dannose entro determinati limiti, atte a ostacolarne lo sviluppo, fino alla morte per apoptosi, sopratutto attraverso l'intergioco fra i numerosi fattori di crescita.
L'essenziale sta nell'attivare tutti gli inibitori dei noti fattori di crescita alle dosi e con tempestività e tempi opportuni. Il protocollo MDB (Metodo Di Bella) è nato in quest'atmosfera, quella della vita e non dall'intossicazione e morte delle cellule, metodo che asseconda ed esalta le reazioni vitali senza ricercare con precisione statistica le dosi più opportune per uccidere.
Il tumore (dagli stadi iniziali, pretumorali alle fasi avanzate, metastatiche) è deviazione dalla vita normale, per cui occorre riportare le reazioni deviate alla norma attraverso l'esaltazione di tutti quei mezzi che la Fisiologia considera essenziali per la vita...

non esiste né esisterà alcun trattamento chemioterapeutico citotossico (né monoterapia) in grado di prevenire o guarire un tumore ma unicamente un Metodo, una multiterapia razionale e biologica, un complesso di sostanze sinergiche e fattorialmente interattive, singolarmente dotate di attività antitumorale atossica, che sequenzialmente o contemporaneamente agiscano centripetamente sulla miriade di reazioni biologiche della vita tumorale riconducendo gradualmente alla normalità le reazioni vitali deviate dal cancro".

Quindi non c'è una sostanza ma un metodo per la prevenzione e cura del cancro. L'alimentazione è una parte fondamentale per la prevenzione.
Un'alimentazione può essere sbagliata per vari motivi: eccesso o carenza d'introduzione di alimenti (errore quantitativo), un errore qualitativo che altera l'equilibrio nell'apporto di una percentuale di una singola classe di alimenti come ad esempio un eccesso di glucidi (zuccheri) o di lipidi (grassi) o un difetto di proteine.
Oltre alla qualità e quantità dei cibi va considerato il modo di cucinarli. Per essere sana e fisiologica la dieta deve essere equilibrata, mai eccessiva, assolutamente non ripetitiva ma varia, diversificata. Mangia secondo l'insegnamento del prof. Di Bella: "Un po' di tutto e di tutto un po'".

La neoplasia non è una malattia acuta, è una malattia cronica. La neoplasia (dal greco nèos, "nuovo" e plàsis, "formazione" poichè è una nuova crescita) non arriva per distruggerti ma per spingerti a trovare nuovi equilibri di vita perché quelli attuali non ti stanno facendo vivere ma morire lentamente nel cuore, anche se non te ne accorgi.
La malattia non è una punizione, è il risultato di uno stile di vita, di un modo di pensare, di un modo di essere e di affrontare gli eventi della vita.
Il segreto è diventare consapevoli che la chiave del cambiamento, dell'evoluzione, della salute, della felicità è osservare continuamente e dolcemente come ci parliamo e cosa immaginiamo dentro di noi rispetto alle cose che viviamo e trasformarlo sempre in modo più luminoso e pacifico.

Safety Comparison of Two Enterovirus 71 (EV71) Inactivated Vaccines in Yiwu, China

 Cache   
Abstract
The safety of two kinds of post-marketing enterovirus 71 (EV71) vaccine in China was evaluated in this study. Fourteen vaccination clinics were randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio, and both children in two groups were administered according to a two-dose schedule (on a 0 and 28 day schedule). Written informed consent was obtained, and recipients in this study were observed for 30 min after inoculation in the clinic, and then followed via phone or on-site follow-up at day 3 and 30. No severe EV71-associated adverse event was reported. No significant difference was noticed between Group Sinovac and Group CAMS (χz= 0.346, p = 0.556). There was no significant difference in the occurrence of adverse events among recipients aged less than 24 months; however, the proportion of adverse events was higher in Group CAMS than in Group Sinovac among the subjects aged 24–35 months (5.3% vs. 2.5%, p < 0.001). The two kinds of EV71 vaccines showed satisfactory safety. Adverse events after vaccination were normal and acceptable.

Zen - Faça o seu Jardim

 Cache   
Mesmo morando num apartamento poderá ter um pouco mais da natureza perto de si. Construa o seu próprio jardim e sinta as suas energias renovar!

 

 

Certamente já viu algum chamado “jardim zen”, ou jardim chinês. De dimensões maiores ou menores, é geralmente composto por um recipiente de porcelana escura, areia fina e diversos seixos ou cristais. Na verdade, esses pequenos jardins são réplicas dos jardins chineses originais, que foram criados segundo os mesmos princípios de harmonia e união cósmica que orientam o pensamento oriental. O jardim chinês está intimamente ligado à casa, e foi concebido para proporcionar boas oportunidades de descanso aos seus moradores, permitindo-lhes passear ou relaxar num banco de madeira. É por essa razão que os jardins chineses costumam ter pequenas pontes, bancos, lagos e árvores frondosas, por entre as quais se circula e, observando a paisagem, os sentidos recolhem toda a energia positiva emitida pela Natureza. Na Antiguidade, os chineses levavam para os seus jardins pedras grandes que representassem montanhas, água e árvores quando estas não existiam de forma natural. Assim sendo, é sempre deixado espaço no centro para que a energia circule sem bloqueios. Nas paredes são abertas janelas circulares, e mesmo as pedras maiores têm buracos e fendas que visam dar-lhes uma maior expressividade e dinamismo. O fundamental num jardim chinês é respeitar a Natureza, mantendo tudo no estado original.

 

Basta usar a criatividade!

 

Para criar um jardim zen em sua casa, utilize a sua sensibilidade e imaginação para aproveitar o espaço de que dispõe. Se vive num pequeno apartamento, lembre-se que pode arranjar um vaso largo e pouco fundo e dispor nele os elementos essenciais. Seja qual for o espaço disponível, conheça a disposição básica que deve adotar: a formação clássica dos 4 animais, de que já lhe falei anteriormente. Na parte de trás deve haver uma parede sólida, que pode ser uma pedra ou um conjunto de plantas maiores, que corresponde à posição da Tartaruga e visa dar estabilidade. À frente encontra-se a Fénix, um espaço de liberdade em que não deve haver bloqueios, devendo colocar uma pequena pedra ou outro objeto a marcar o fim do jardim sem obstruir à vista. À direita é conveniente ter plantas ou seixos mais baixos e planos, na posição onde se encontra a energia do Tigre, e à esquerda, que corresponde ao Dragão, deve haver uma proteção mais alta. Esta estrutura da Tartaruga, Fénix, Tigre e Dragão pode ser utilizada tanto no jardim como no seu escritório através da forma como dispõe os móveis.

I be pretty curious to see what you think of the original after playing through it, and if and how that impacts your view of SPV3.. wholesale sex toys

dildos In other words, whatever limits and boundaries you have need to be just as important as his limits and boundaries and need to be respected without question. Obviously, too, any additional partner would have to also be someone you knew you could trust, who conversations were also had with about limits, boundaries and sex safety. If a secondary partner is only being chosen by one partner for both, that's not at all okay. dildos

dildos I love the design of this ring. I love that it has two rings, attached together so you don't have to use two separate ones to get the same effect. It's compact, and although the rings may not look as thick as some others on the market, I can't see them snapping at all, even when stretched to the max. dildos

dildo So we in a dificult fight against a basilisk, and Ainz is all cocky, saying hes going to nuke him. He casts Inflict Wounds at the 5th level, and gets a crit fail. He casts it on himself, and is KO The fight ends, and as everyone is recovering, Violet murders Ainz with a dagger while he down. dildo

wholesale sex toys Simply put, jelly isn very body safe. Besides the pthalates it contains, which some women gain infections from, it very porous and can harbor bacterial. It also breaks down faster than some other materials, and shouldn be kept for more than a year. Girls can get away with a lot more (a friend of mine and I flirt sometimes just to freak people out in my homophobic school). I think the administration would like to just ignore that fact that lesbians exist.

Adult Toys I use this primarily as a clitoral vibrator, but I have used it vaginally and anally as well. I rarely turn it on when I use it anally and vaginally; I don't care for it that much. As I have grown accustomed to this at the strongest level, I'm now looking for a more intense vibrator for clitoral stimulation, but I still love using this. Adult Toys

animal dildo Well, overall, it would have been great if he'd known the technique of not being an ass. Specifically in bed, though, I wish he'd understood that "satisfying your partner" really isn't all there is to a good sex life. He thought that as long as I was having fabulous orgasms, we were all good and I definitely wasn't complaining about that part! But he was too tense to come most of the time, and didn't understand how troubling and unfulfilling that was for me. animal dildo

dildo However, don't worry too much as everyone is different for a start, and I find it unlikely that your partner would not reach orgasm if you were making love for a substancial amount of time. But as Logic_grrl said, it may well be best to talk to him. This is not meant as any kind of comment against women, but it's often difficult for a woman to do anything wrong during normal lovemaking. dildo

horse dildo It's called Trans Just For The Fun Of It it's either a comma or an exclamation point after "Trans," I'm not sure. A lot of it has to do with owning the queer and the straight within all of us we've shown that gender as a binary can be busted up. And we're now reaping the rewards of busting it up there is no small reason why Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have basically outlawed postmodern gender theory. horse dildo

wholesale vibrators Have to keep doing what we doing to keep the momentum going and the precision that it takes to keep sharp and all that, Carroll said. Sweezy suffered a sprained foot and not an ankle injury in Sunday victory. He did not have a prognosis whether Sweezy would play in Week 17 Rashaad Penny (knee) and RT Germain Ifedi (groin) both intend to play in Week 17 after missing the win over Kansas City. wholesale vibrators

dog dildo They can melt. The same hold true if silicone touches other materials such as rubber dildos, jellies and TPE/TPR. Silicone should not be stored with these toys because they could cause contamination (since those materials are porous). Right now i weigh about 120 and i'm 5 feet 2 and a half inches. So I think i did pretty well. The golden Muses. dog dildo

wholesale vibrators Anyway. The night ended and we all went home Oh the one big thing I haven't mentioned yet is that half way through this entire ordeal on the couch, I suddenly remembered that guy was the same guy who my roommate had slept with last year. The spiel behind that is that she had a drunken one night stand w/ him and then later on in the year her roommate at the time dated him. wholesale vibrators

gay sex toys Although a longtime law professor at Yale, Bork was a charter member of the "Chicago school" of law and economics, which argued that judges should use rigorous analysis of economic consequences in deciding antitrust cases. Previously, much of antitrust doctrine was based on somewhat vague political notions that big was bad that large corporations with large market shares inevitably used their power to drive rivals from the market, raise prices, buy favorable treatment from legislators and regulators. In 1963, the Supreme Court even went so far as to declare that any merger that achieved more than 30 percent share of any market should be considered unlawful.. gay sex toys

The only drawback was that all the little twitches made him kind of tense and jerky. He'd gotten used to it, but it still made him a little hinky on those skates, especially when he was doing a hundred clicks an hour through a crowded street. But few people hassled Bud, even when he knocked them down in the street, and after today no one would hassle him ever again..
