19 películas de Netflix, HBO, Movistar + y Amazon Prime perfectas para alimentar tu espíritu navideño

La Navidad calienta motores en las plataformas de streaming, y somos muchos los que ya hemos puesto el árbol, comprado nuestro vestido con brilli brilli para Nochevieja y colocado los calcetines para que ni Papá Noel ni los Reyes se pierdan. Por eso ya va siendo hora de que comience también la maratón de películas navideñas en la televisión, tanto las clásicas como las novedades que nos traen las plataformas de streaming. Te enseñamos las mejores películas de Navidad de 2018 de Netflix, HBO, Movistar+ y Amazon Prime Video para que el espíritu navideño te posea por completo.

Cambio de princesa

Las protagonistas, una panadera de Chicago y una futura princesa, se parecen tanto que podrían pasar por la misma persona. Por eso la princesa planea hacerse pasar la una por la otra durante las Navidades. Las dos aceptan, pero pronto descubrirán que no va a ser tan sencillo como esperaban.

Al estilo del Tú a Londres y yo a California de Lindsay Lohan, Cambio de princesa, lo nuevo de Netflix que se estrena el 16 de noviembre, tiene como protagonista absoluta a Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), y ha venido para sorprendernos estas Navidades.

Algo para recordar

Sam Baldwin, un arquitecto viudo, es engañado por su hijo de ocho años para contar su historia en un programa de radio. Una de las miles de mujeres que lo escuchan y quedan prendadas de su encanto es Annie Reed, una joven periodista que está a punto de casarse. Él decide volver a salir con mujeres, y ella duda sobre lo que es el amor.

Algo Para Recordar Las Mejores Peliculas De Navidad En Netflix Hbo Movistar Amazon Prime Video Y Flixole 2018

Tom Hanks y Meg Ryan protagonizan Algo para recordar, una emblemática comedia romántica de los 90 ambientada en la época navideña y que tiene mucho amor.

Crónicas de Navidad

Crónicas de Navidad se estrenará el próximo 22 de noviembre, y cuenta la historia de Kate y Teddy, dos hermanos que acaban colándose en el trineo de Santa Claus para grabarle con su cámara. Están a punto de cargarse las Navidades, pero pronto formarán una alianza con él para que todo siga el cauce previsto.

¿Kurt Russell haciendo de Papá Noel? Si creías haberlo visto todo, es que aún no habías descubierto la Navidad en Netflix.

Polar express

Tom Hanks es el maquinista del Polar Express, un tren que llega a casa de un niño en Navidad para que haga realidad sus sueños. Polar Express es una película de Robert Zemeckis, nominada a tres Oscar, y fue la primera en rodarse por completo en performance capture, un sistema de animación que captura los movimientos del actor y los transforma en imágenes animadas en tres dimensiones. Mucha nieve y magia en esta adaptación del libro "El expreso polar", de Chris Van Allsburg.

El grinch

En el pueblo de Villaquién todos celebran la Navidad menos el Grinch, un ser gruñón y peludo que vive en lo alto de la montaña y cuya única compañía es un perro. Una dulce niña intentará averiguar por qué el Grinch detesta las fiestas navideñas.

El Grinch Las Mejores Peliculas De Navidad En Netflix Hbo Movistar Amazon Prime Video Y Flixole 2018

Tanto si odias la Navidad como si la adoras, El Grinch es una de las elecciones más divertidas para esta época del año. Esta comedia, donde Jim Carrey brilla con su peculiar humor, fue ganadora de un Oscar en 2001 y tiene una nueva versión animada en los cines.

El calendario de Navidad

La nueva película de Bradley Walsh es una producción original de Netflix y cuenta la historia de una fotógrafa en una mala racha (Kat Graham) que hereda un antiguo calendario de adviento cuyo contenido parece tener la habilidad de predecir el futuro.

Los gremlins

Es Navidad y Ram Pelzer (Hoyt Axton), se adentra en el barrio chino de una ciudad en busca del regalo perfecto para su hijo Billy (Zach Galligan). Allí encuentra a Gizmo, un encantador Mogwai cuyo cuidado exige mucha responsabilidad: no debe darle la luz brillante, no debe estar en contacto con agua y, por mucho que llore, nunca, nunca, puede comer después de medianoche. El problema es que no será tan fácil cumplirlas como parece.

Por mi parte, no imagino una Navidad sin Gizmo, la ternura personificada. Mucho humor, acción y toque navideño que hacen de Los Gremlins un clásico del cine fantástico perfecto para disfrutar en estas fechas.

Herencia navideña

Ellen (Eliza Taylor), es la irresponsable heredera de un gran emporio de la industria del regalo. Para darle una lección, su padre decide que a cambio de recibir su regalo navideño, Ellen deberá viajar de incógnito a entregar la tradicional carta de Navidad a su tío Zeke, el extraño socio de su padre. Herencia Navideña es un “drama ligero romántico” y fue una de las apuestas de Netflix para las pasadas Navidades. Este año también está disponible para los rezagados que no la vieron, o para los que sí lo hicieron y quieren repetir.

Solo en casa

Cuando los McCallister se marchan a París para pasar las vacaciones de Navidad, se olvidan de un pequeño detalle: su hijo Kevin no está con ellos en el avión. Para el pequeño es una maravillosa noticia, al fin podrá hacer todo lo que sus padres le prohíben, hasta que una pareja de ladrones intenta robar en su casa. Solo en casa es la comedia americana que transformó en estrella a su protagonista Macaulay Culkin y es ideal para que el espíritu navideño por fin entre en ti.

Un príncipe de Navidad

Amber (Rose McIver) es una joven periodista que debe cubrir en Navidad la sucesión del trono del polémico príncipe Richard (Ben Lamb) en el pequeño reino de Aldovia. Tras una desastrosa rueda de prensa, Amber decide colarse en el palacio real para intentar sacar algo en exclusiva. Allí será confundida con Martha, la nueva maestra de la princesa Emily (Honor Kneafsey). Amber irá conociendo mejor al príncipe durante los días que pasan hasta la ceremonia de sucesión, disputada por el conde Simon (Theo Devaney), primo del heredero y segundo en la línea de sucesión.

Un príncipe para Navidad fue de lo más sonado en las pasadas Navidades de Netflix. Esta producción original del gigante del streaming es según Espinof, un placer culpable. ¿Te vas a resistir a este romance navideño? Y si te enamoras, Netflix también tiene la segunda parte, Un príncipe de Navidad: La boda real.

Placido

En una pequeña ciudad española se inventan una campaña caritativa de Navidad destinada a familias ricas con el lema "Cene con un pobre". Para participar en la cabalgata que organizan contratan a Plácido (Cassen), un honrado trabajador, y a su motocarro. Él acepta, pero justo ese día le vence una letra para pagar el vehículo y empieza a luchar con bancos, notarios y ricos que no harán nada para impedir el embargo de su único medio de vida.

Placido Luis Garcia Berlanga Las Mejores Peliculas De Navidad En Netflix Hbo Movistar Amazon Prime Video Y Flixole 2018

Un clásico entre los clásicos. Luis García Berlanga nos sumerge en la España más tradicional con una comedia de 1961 que llegó a estar nominada al Óscar a la Mejor película de habla no inglesa.

Bad Santa 2

Impulsado por el whisky barato y la codicia, Willie Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) de nuevo hace equipo con su compañero Marcus (Tony Cox), para planear un robo en la víspera de Navidad. La entidad elegida esta vez es una organización benéfica de Chicago dirigida por Diane (Christina Hendricks), una mujer con un corazón de oro y una líbido de acero. A la banda se les une Sunny Soke (Kathy Bates), que eleva el nivel de ambición de la banda, al tiempo que baja los estándares de comportamiento criminal.

Tras el éxito de Bad Santa, Billy Bob Thornton repite en su papel de Willie Soke, el Santa Claus más irreverente del cine. Esta comedia navideña, es ácida, satírica y muy divertida, y la elección más gamberra de esta lista.

Pesadilla antes de Navidad

Jack es el rey de la Ciudad de Halloween. Supervisa las delicias macabras, los escalofríos y las sorpresas que se exportan al mundo real, pero está aburrido de esa rutina. Un día, por accidente, Jack tropieza con una entrada a la Ciudad de la Navidad y se queda extasiado con los colores, los juguetes y la alegría que ve. Obsesionado con la idea de hacerse con el control de la Navidad, convence a sus súbditos para que lo ayuden a suplantar a Santa.

Recuerdo como si fuera ayer cuando fui al cine siendo una niña a ver esta película de animación de Tim Burton. Flipe tanto con Jack y con este gótico cuento navideño, que aún hoy tengo un muñeco suyo disfrazado de Santa Claus en la estantería de mi salón. La mezcla perfecta entre la Navidad y Halloween tiene nombre y es Pesadilla antes de Navidad.

Solo amigos

Chris (Ryan Reynolds) es un buen chico, aunque un poco pardillo. El día de la graduación del Instituto decide armarse de valor y confesarle su amor a Jamie (Amy Smart), pero ella le quiere... solo como amigo. Diez años más tarde, Chris se ha convertido en un atractivo y prometedor productor musical. Su éxito con las mujeres le ha hecho olvidar su fracaso con Jamie. O al menos, eso es lo que él cree. La gira con la estrella del pop Samantha James (Anna Faris), le obliga a hacer escala en su antiguo pueblo en Navidad. Muy a su pesar, va a reencontrarse con su familia, sus amigos... y con Jamie.

Solo Amigos Las Mejores Peliculas De Navidad En Netflix Hbo Movistar Amazon Prime Video Y Flixole 2018

Si has visto Deadpool sabrás que Ryan Reynolds tiene una maravillosa vis cómica. Y esta comedia romántica tan navideña es una demostración más de ese talento humorístico. Desenfadada y con mucha nieve, Solo amigos es perfecta para ver después de un atracón de polvorones y bajar esas calorías de más con carcajadas.

Jungla de cristal

El detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) decide viajar a Los Ángeles en Navidad, cargado de regalos, para intentar rehacer su vida familiar. Al llegar a la oficina de su mujer Holly ignora lo que Gruber y una docena de terroristas planean: sellar el edificio y tomar como rehenes a los empleados. Pero McClane no ha sido visto, y ahora, solo con un arma y su valor y astucia, deberá desbaratar el plan de los asaltantes.

Jungla de cristal es la película navideña con más acción (y la mejor según algunos) que encontrarás para estas fechas. Porque en Navidad también pueden gustarte las balas, los puñetazos y los héroes americanos.

Que bello es vivir

George Bailey (James Stewart) es un honrado ciudadano que siempre se ha sacrificado por los demás. Dirige un pequeño banco familiar, a pesar de los intentos de un poderoso banquero por arruinarlo y abrumado por la desaparición de una importante suma de dinero, decide suicidarse. Pero entonces aparece Clarence (Henry Travers), un ángel de segunda clase que es enviado a la Tierra con la misión de disuadirle, y ganarse así sus alas. Para ello, le muestra cuál habría sido la vida de aquellos que le rodean si él no hubiera existido.

Este clásico de Frank Capra, basado en el cuento de The Greatest Gift de Philip Van Doren Stern, es la típica película para ver abrazado a los tuyos mientras una lagrimita te recorre la mejilla. Todos influimos en la vida de los demás, aunque a veces pensemos que no, y Qué bello es vivir es perfecta para recordarnos que somos importantes.

El día de la bestia

Un sacerdote (Álex Angulo) cree haber descifrado el mensaje secreto del Apocalipsis según San Juan: el Anticristo nacerá el 25 de diciembre de 1995 en Madrid. Para impedir el nacimiento del hijo de Satanás, el cura se alía con José María (Santiago Segura), un joven aficionado al death metal. Ambos intentan averiguar en qué parte de Madrid tendrá lugar el apocalíptico acontecimiento. Con la ayuda del profesor Cavan (Armando de Razza), presentador de un programa de televisión de carácter esotérico y sobrenatural, el cura y José María invocan al diablo en una extraña ceremonia.

El Dia De La Bestia Las Mejores Peliculas De Navidad En Netflix Hbo Movistar Amazon Prime Video Y Flixole 2018

Alex de la Iglesia firma este film, el más satánico y siniestro de nuestra navideña lista, que es una mezcla de comedia, terror y thriller. El día de la bestia se llevó seis premios Goya, incluyendo el de Mejor director, y aporta el toque más grunge a tu Navidad cinéfila.

Un padre en apuros

Howard Langston (Arnold Schwarzenegger) es uno de esos padres que suele pasar poco tiempo en casa con su familia. Cuando se acercan las navidades, le promete a su hijo que tendrá el mejor regalo del mundo, el muñeco del superhéroe de moda, Turboman. Cuando Howard se quiere dar cuenta, el día de Navidad está a la vuelta de la esquina y no se ha preocupado en absoluto de comprar el deseado juguete. Ahora está agotado en todos los centros comerciales y su única esperanza es el sorteo de una radio local.

No podíamos dejar fuera a Arnold Schwarzenegger y su odisea buscando el regalo de su hijo, Jake Lloyd (Anakin en la saga de Star Wars). Esta vez Terminator no tirará de fuerza ni de armas, sino de humor en una comedia clásica de Navidad.

Love actually

¿De verdad pensabas que no incluiríamos Love Actually en una lista de películas navideñas? Desde hace 15 años no imaginamos una Navidad sin ella. Es todo lo que debería ser el espíritu navideño: está cargada de amor, de ternura, de regalos, de nieve, de amistad y de familia. Es realmente divertida, dulce y se ha convertido en una tradición navideña tan importante como comerse las uvas de fin de año.

Ocho historias que se cruzan en un reparto de esos que enamoran. Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Martin Freeman, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Liam Neeson o Bill Nighy son algunas de las caras conocidas de esta comedia romántica británica que nos enamoró desde el primer día. Love Actually es Navidad, ni más ni menos.

Maratona de Macau rendida a Rosa Mota

 Cache   

 

O dia 1 de dezembro marcou a realização da Maratona de Macau, competição que abriu com a prova de mini-maratona, com Rosa Mota a vencer, pelo segundo ano consecutivo, a corrida de 5.200 metros, cortando a meta em 19.31, melhorando em mais de dois minutos o registo alcançado há um ano.

 

Estava em melhor forma do que estava no ano passado”, afirmou à agência Lusa, antes de ver a chegada das competições principais onde estavam a competir atletas portugueses, com Joana Fonseca a terminar a prova na 14.ª posição, com a marca de 2:55.49 horas. A vencedora foi a queniana Lucy Cheruiyot (2:31.17). Nos homens registou-se o triunfo do etíope Tafese Abebe (2:12.53).

 

Na outra prova do programa, a meia maratona, destaque para Carla Martinho que terminou na terceira posição (1:17.57), numa prova em que o triunfo foi para a queniana Esther Wambui Karimi (1:13.37). A sportinguista Sandra Teixeira, em representação de Cabo Verde, foi 8ª (1:28.10).

 

Na prova masculina, que conheceu como vencedor o queniano John Muiruri Mburu (1:03.45), o benfiquista Samuel Freire, em representação de Cabo Verde, foi quarto classificado (1:08.09), logo à frente do português Vitor Oliveira (1:08.15)

 


          

Macao non sfugge alla sinificazione della Chiesa

 Cache   

I cattolici di Macao (Cina) non fuggono: per tre notti consecutive, dal 29 settembre al 1 ottobre 2019, la filiale locale del Partito comunista (PCC) al potere, ha organizzato uno spettacolo per la gloria del maoismo e del governo di Pechino, tra le rovine storiche della chiesa di San Paolo, situata a Santo Antonio, a ovest della penisola.

L'evento - pomposamente chiamato "Glorioso splendore per celebrazione del 70° anniversario della fondazione della Repubblica Popolare Cinese" - si è svolto sulla facciata sud della chiesa costruita all'inizio del XVII secolo da cattolici giapponesi in esilio.

Dedicata alla Madre di Dio, la facciata raffigura la Vergine vittoriosamente in piedi sopra un drago a sette teste.

«I fedeli sono molto infelici perché questi resti sono un simbolo importante per la Chiesa, e anche se il posto è attualmente sotto il controllo del governo, lo spettacolo avrebbe dovuto valorizzare la storia di questo patrimonio», ha detto il 2 Ottobre 2019 Padre Cyril Jerome Law, Cancelliere della Diocesi di Macao.

In risposta al cancelliere, il segretario agli Affari sociali e alla cultura, Alexis Tam Chong Weng, ha respinto il problema in modo irenico dicendo a Macau News: «non possiamo contestare lo spettacolo; abbiamo bisogno di tolleranza e comprensione reciproca».

 

I fedeli, da parte loro, hanno capito il messaggio: appropriandosi della facciata della chiesa di San Paolo per celebrare il comunismo trionfante, è l'eredità cattolica dell'ex colonia portoghese che il PCC desiderava cancellare, in nome di una damnatio memoriae tanto più insidiosa in quanto nasconde il suo nome.

Mentre si suppone che Macao possa godere della relativa libertà, grazie al principio di "un paese, due sistemi", i cattolici dell'ex colonia portoghese hanno imparato a loro spese cosa significhi la politica di sinizzazione della religione desiderata da Pechino .


          

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

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

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

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

Citroën's Ogier blame game

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

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

Rally Australia cancelled

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

Albon gets his reward

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

Life in the old dog

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

Stock cars to go hybrid?

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

Rising star

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

Great racing cars

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

Macau casino revenue slides 8.5% in November

 Cache   

Macau casino revenue slides 8.5% in NovemberGambling revenue in the Chinese territory of Macau dropped 8.5% in November year on year, hit by lacklustre demand from high roller gamblers due to slowing economic growth amid the ongoing Sino-U.S. trade war and protests in neighbouring Hong Kong. November's figure of 22.9 billion patacas ($2.8 billion), the second weakest figure this year, comes as some high roller players delay trips to Macau, analysts said. While protests in the Asian financial hub of Hong Kong have caused transport disruption and deterred travel to the former British colony and then on to Macau, analysts and executives say the impact on gaming revenues has been minimal.

"Bây giờ Mỹ đã có các công cụ mới đầy ý nghĩa để ngăn chặn ảnh hưởng và can thiệp sâu hơn của Bắc Kinh vào các vấn đề nội bộ ở Hong Kong" - thượng nghị sĩ Rubio, đại diện nhóm 4 nghị sĩ trên, nói ngày 28-11 "Sau cuộc bầu cử cuối tuần trước tại Hong Kong với kết quả bất ngờ, luật mới này vừa được thông qua kịp lúc để thể hiện sự ủng hộ mạnh mẽ của Mỹ đối với các quyền tự do được ấp ủ lâu nay của Hong Kong" - ông Rubio cho biết thêm. Trước đó, theo Reuters , Nhà Trắng thông báo tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump đã ký thông qua Đạo luật Nhân quyền và Dân chủ Hong Kong và đạo luật cấm xuất khẩu vũ khí  kiểm soát đám đông như lựu đạn hơi cay cho chính quyền Hong Kong nhằm hỗ trợ người biểu tình ủng hộ dân chủ ở Hong Kong.

Hàng nghìn người Hong Kong tập trung ở trung tâm thành phố hôm nay, vẫy cờ Mỹ để cảm ơn việc TT Trump ký đạo luật Hong Kong.

“Lý do chính chúng tôi tổ chức tuần hành là để cho thấy chúng tôi đánh giá cao và biết ơn quốc hội Mỹ cũng như Tổng thống Donald Trump vì đã thông qua đạo luật”, Che Cheung, 23 tuổi, một thành viên của nhóm sinh viên vận động Đạo luật Dân chủ và Nhân quyền Hong Kong, hôm nay cho biết.

Ước tính hàng nghìn người đã tham gia cuộc tuần hành được đặt tên “Lễ Tạ ơn” ở Hong Kong hôm nay, trong đó nhiều người vẫy cờ Mỹ. Cựu nghị sĩ Nathan Law gọi việc Tổng thống Mỹ ký thông qua đạo luật là “món quà kịp thời trong dịp Lễ Tạ ơn”.

Tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump hôm 27/11 ký thông qua đạo luật Dân chủ và Nhân quyền Hong Kong được quốc hội trình lên. Theo đạo luật này, Ngoại trưởng Mỹ hàng năm có trách nhiệm chứng nhận Hong Kong duy trì quyền tự quyết để đặc khu có thể hưởng ưu đãi thương mại từ Mỹ, duy trì vai trò trung tâm tài chính của thế giới.

Người Hong Kong tập trung ở trung tâm thành phố hôm nay, vẫy cờ Mỹ để cảm ơn việc Trump ký đạo luật Hong Kong.

Hong Kong vốn được hưởng trạng thái đặc biệt, giúp đặc khu mua các công nghệ nhạy cảm, đồng thời đảm bảo trao đổi tự do giữa đồng dollar Mỹ và dollar Hong Kong cũng như cho phép thành phố đàm phán các thỏa thuận thương mại và đầu tư độc lập với Bắc Kinh.

Trạng thái đặc biệt còn giúp cư dân Hong Kong tránh các hạn chế về thị thực áp dụng cho công dân Trung cộng đại lục.

Tổng thống Mỹ cũng ký thông qua luật cấm bán hơi cay, đạn cao su và các thiết bị khác được lực lượng cảnh sát Hong Kong sử dụng để đối phó người biểu tình.

Bộ Ngoại giao Trung cộng ra tuyên bố gọi việc Trump thông qua đạo luật là hành động “ghê tởm, chứa ý đồ nham hiểm”, đồng thời cảnh báo sẽ có biện pháp trả đũa quyết liệt và phía Mỹ phải chịu mọi hậu quả.

Tuy nhiên, người phát ngôn Bộ Ngoại giao Trung cộng Cảnh Sảng từ chối bình luận về biện pháp đáp trả của Bắc Kinh.

Bộ Thương mại Trung cộng cũng không nói đạo luật Hong Kong có ảnh hưởng đến đàm phán thương mại Mỹ – Trung hay không.

Thứ trưởng Ngoại giao Trung cộng Lạc Ngọc Thành đã triệu Đại sứ Mỹ Terry Branstad, yêu cầu Washington không áp dụng đạo luật và ngay lập tức ngừng can thiệp vào công việc nội bộ của Trung cộng.

Tổng biên tập tờ Global Times của Trung cộng Hồ Tích Tiến đăng Twitter rằng Bắc Kinh đang xem xét cấm thượng nghị sĩ Marco Rubio, người đề xuất đạo luật Hong Kong, nhập cảnh vào Trung cộng đại lục, Hong Kong và Macau.

Đạo luật Dân chủ và Nhân quyền Hong Kong được Mỹ thông qua sau khi đặc khu chứng kiến các cuộc biểu tình bùng phát từ đầu tháng 6 để phản đối dự luật dẫn độ cho phép đưa nghi phạm đến các khu vực tài phán mà đặc khu chưa ký hiệp ước dẫn độ, bao gồm cả Trung cộng đại lục. 

BM
  
Sau khi chính quyền đặc khu rút dự luật, người biểu tình vẫn xuống đường đưa ra các yêu cầu khác, trong đó có điều tra hành động sử dụng vũ lực của cảnh sát, tổ chức bầu cử dân chủ và lãnh đạo Hong Kong Carrie Lam từ chức.

Chính quyền Hong Kong hôm nay nói rằng họ “cực kỳ lấy làm tiếc” việc Trump ký thông qua đạo luật Hong Kong, cáo buộc Washington can thiệp công việc nội bộ của thành phố và “gửi thông điệp sai cho người biểu tình”.

How Packard could have doomed Chrysler Corporation

 Cache   

Raczer.com- Your Car Scene Network (Raczer's Garage, Caruzin events and the Northwest Cruise Calendar)

Things were tense in the executive suite of General Motors. The year was 1915 and GM founder Billy Durant was back in charge, but many were not happy.
Five years earlier, Durant had severely overextended the company’s finances, and when financial institutions called in their loans, Durant, with little working capital, surrendered stewardship of the company to bankers.
Among those seizing control of the company was Boston Brahmin James Storrow, the senior partner at Lee, Higginson & Company, head of the bankers’ voting trust and instigator of the coup to oust Durant. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Storrow was Durant’s opposite, preferring research and data to Durant’s preference for intuition and speculation. Even as Storrow continued his work at Lee, Higginson & Company, he was designated the chairman of GM’s finance committee. It was Storrow, not Durant, who was now running General Motors.
“Mr. Storrow was of the “banker” type—rather cold-blooded—which was entirely contrary to his real makeup,” says Charles Nash, who had in 1891 joined what would later become the Durant Dort Carriage Company. There, he rose to become a director and vice president. Storrow, who also held a position on the American Locomotive Company’s board, appointed Nash as Buick’s president and general manager, replacing Durant. When an experienced manufacturing executive was needed to run Buick’s factories, Storrow knew just the man: Walter Chrysler.
“Mr. Storrow, a director of American Locomotive, discovered Walter P. Chrysler in one of that company’s shops and recommended him to Mr. Nash,” recalls Alfred Sloan in his memoir, My Years With General Motors.
“Mr. Nash hired Mr. Chrysler in 1911, I believe, as works manager of Buick. In 1912, when Mr. Nash moved up to be president of General Motors, Mr. Chrysler remained at Buick, where he was later to be president and general manager,” Sloan writes.

“We became friends, in fact, for life,” Chrysler writes of Nash in his autobiography, Life Of An American Workman. “Charley is a grand man.”
By 1915, the new management team put in place under Storrow returned GM to financial health, and declared a $50-per-share cash dividend—$1271 when adjusted for inflation—on its stock in 1915, a record at the time. While it rankled the notoriously parsimonious Nash, it marked the beginning of a battle between the bankers and Nash on the one hand, and Durant on the other. Despite having been stripped of authority, Durant had remained on GM’s board as a powerless vice chairman, although during the past five years he had established the Chevrolet Motor Company, quietly exchanging its stock for that of General Motors with help from the du Pont family.
Then, in June 1915, Storrow left the board. Durant knew the time was right.
“On September 16, 1915, Billy Durant walked into the General Motors stockholders’ meeting. Quickly and quietly he asserted and established that he, the founder, was once more in control; that is, Chevrolet controlled General Motors,” recalls Chrysler. “Durant had spent $27 million of du Pont money to accomplish this end.”
“After Mr. Durant’s victory, inducements were offered to Mr. Nash to stay with General Motors,” Sloan says. “But on April 18, 1916, he resigned from the presidency of the company.” By June, Durant had taken Nash’s place as president of GM.
As Nash contemplated his future, Storrow had been planning to build a car company to compete against GM and Durant. His prey? Packard.
“Nash and Storrow were persuaded we three ought to work together in something else. I was willing, provided we could make our plan work,” Chrysler recalls. “We wanted to buy out the Packard Motor Car Company; plants, agencies, everything. Mr. Storrow was coming out to Detroit to make the trade. The negotiations had proceeded so smoothly until then that we counted on it as practically settled.”
While Packard’s chairman, Henry B. Joy, was interested, company president Alvan Macauley was less enthusiastic. The takeover would lead to his demotion, as it would for most of the board. The discussions weren’t made public. In fact, the only hint of negotiations was noted in the Packard Motor Car Company board minutes from November 1916, where there was “a discussion of the affairs of the company.” A month later, Macauley “was authorized to have the company’s property appraised,” according to company board minutes.

Meanwhile, back at GM, Durant had made Chrysler an offer he couldn’t refuse: assume the presidency of Buick for $500,000 a year ($12.7 million in today’s dollars), an exchange he recalls in his autobiography:
“I want to be perfectly frank with you, Mr. Durant,” Chrysler said. “If a plan on which I am negotiating now goes through, I’m quitting here.”
“This is a great company. You’ve been doing a splendid job,” Durant replied.
“If this plan goes through, Mr. Durant, I’m committed.”
Billy nodded, smiling his understanding. “How long will it take you to learn for sure?”
“Thirty days, I think.”
“I’ll be in Flint for thirty days. When you make up your mind, you call me. I’d like to talk to you.”
Back in Detroit, the Packard board determined that the company’s business was fine; it saw no need to change things. Joy resigned as chairman due to “the pressure of other affairs,” according to company minutes.
Storrow and Nash went on to take over the Thomas B. Jeffery Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin, renaming it Nash Motors. Chrysler, not tempted to move to Kenosha, would remain at GM until 1919 before moving to Willys-Overland and Maxwell. He established the Chrysler Corporation in 1925.
Packard survived until 1957, succumbing to the marketing muscle of Detroit’s Big Three, which included General Motors and the Chrysler Corporation.

UPDATE 1-China picks new leaders for Macau, replaces economy chiefChina has appointed a slate of new officials to head the world's top gambling hub of Macau, changing key roles including the city's economy and justice secretaries. The appointments in Macau, a special administrative region of China, come as the city's casino industry is experiencing tumbling revenues and ahead of an expected visit by President Xi Jinping this month to mark 20 years of Chinese rule. Macau, which neighbours China's other special administrative region, Hong Kong, announced the changes on a government website late on Sunday.

This article will be difficult to read and was difficult to write. I hope that you can stomach the uncomfortable nature of this topic and read my thoughts in earnest. I usually focus on technology-related content, but at the end of the day, this is my personal blog and I feel that it would betray my personal principles to remain silent. I’ve made an effort to provide citations for all of my assertions.

Note: if you are interested in conducting an independent review of the factuality of the claims expressed in this article, please contact me.

The keyboard I’m typing these words into bears “Made in China” on the bottom. The same is true of the monitor I’m using to edit the article. It’s not true of all of my electronics — the graphics processing unit which is driving the monitor was made in Taiwan1 and my phone was made in Vietnam.2 Regardless, there’s no doubt that my life would be, to some degree, worse off if not for trade with China. Despite this, I am prepared to accept the consequences of severing economic relations with China.

How bad would being cut-off from China’s economy be? We’re a net importer from China, and by over 4 times the volume.3 Let’s assume, in the worst case, trade ties were completely severed. The United States would be unable to buy $155B worth of electronics, which we already have domestic manufacturing capabilities for4 and which have a productive life of several years. We could definitely stand to get used to repairing and reusing these instead of throwing them out. We’d lose $34B in mattresses and furniture — same story. The bulk of our imports from China are luxury goods that we can already make here at home5 — it’s just cheaper to buy them from China. But cheaper for whom?

This gets at the heart of the reason why we’re tied to China economically. It’s economically productive for the 1% to maintain a trade relationship with China. The financial incentives don’t help any Americans, and in fact, most of us are hurt by this relationship.6 Trade is what keeps us shackled to the Chinese Communist Party government, but it’s not beneficial to anyone but those who are already obscenely rich, and certainly not for our poorest — who, going into 2020, are as likely to be high school dropouts as they are to be doctors.7

So, we can cut off China. Why should we? Let’s lay out the facts: China is conducting human rights violations on the largest scale the world has seen since Nazi Germany. China executes political prisoners8 and harvests their organs for transplant to sick elites on an industrial scale, targeting and killing civilians based on not only political, but also ethnic and religious factors. This is commonly known as genocide. China denies using the organs of prisoners, but there’s credible doubt9 from the scientific community.

Recent evidence directly connecting executions to organ harvesting is somewhat unreliable, but I don’t think China deserves the benefit of the doubt. China is a world leader in executions, and is believed to conduct more executions than the rest of the world combined.10 Wait times for organ transplantation are extraordinarily low in China,11 on the order of weeks — in most of the developed world these timeframes are measured in terms of years,12 and China has been unable to explain the source for tens of thousands of transplants in the past13. And, looking past recent evidence, China directly admitted to using the organs of executed prisoners in 2005.14

These atrocities are being committed against cultural minorities to further China’s power. The UN published a statement in August 2018 stating that they have credible reports of over a million ethnic Uighurs being held in internment camps in Xinjiang,15 imprisoned with various other ethnic minorities from the region. Leaks in November 2019 reported by the New York Times showed that China admits the imprisoned have committed no crimes other than dissent,16 and that the camps were to be run with, quote, “absolutely no mercy”.

It’s nice to believe that we would have stood up to Nazi Germany if we had been there in the 1940’s. China is our generation’s chance to prove ourselves of that conviction. We talk a big game about fighting against white nationalists in our own country, and pride ourselves on standing up against “fascists”. It’s time we turned attention to the real fascists, on the world stage.

Instead, the staunch capitalism of America, and the West as a whole, has swooped in to leverage Chinese fascism for a profit. Marriott Hotels apologized for listing Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan as countries separate from China.17 Apple removed the Taiwanese flag from iOS in China and the territories it claims.18 Activision/Blizzard banned several players for making pro-Hong Kong statements in tournaments and online.19 These behaviors make me ashamed to be an American.

Fuck that.

A brief history lesson: Hong Kong was originally controlled by the United Kingdom at the end of the Opium Wars. It’s beyond the scope of this article, but it’ll suffice to say that the United Kingdom was brutal and out of line, and the end result is that Hong Kong became a British colony. Because of this, it was protected from direct Chinese influence during China’s turbulent years following, and they were insulated from the effects of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, which together claimed tens of millions of lives and secured the Communist Party of China’s power into the present.

On July 1st, 1997, the Sino-British Joint Declaration went into effect, and Hong Kong was turned over to China. The agreement stipulated that Hong Kong would remain effectively autonomous and self-governing for a period of 50 years — until 2047. China has been gradually and illegally eroding that autonomy ever since. Today, Hong Kong citizens have effectively no representation in their government. The Legislative Council of Hong Kong has been deliberately engineered by China to be pro-Beijing — a majority of the council is selected through processes with an inherent pro-Beijing bias, giving Hong Kong effectively no autonomous power to pass laws.20

Hong Kong’s executive branch is even worse. The Chief Executive of Hong Kong (Carrie Lam) is elected by a committee of 1,200 members largely controlled by pro-Beijing seats, from a pool of pro-Beijing candidates, and the people have effectively no representation in the election. The office has been held by pro-Beijing politicians since it was established.21

The ongoing protests in Hong Kong were sparked by a mainland attempt to rein in Hong Kong’s judicial system in a similar manner, with the introduction of the “Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019”,22 which would have allowed the authorities to extradite suspects awaiting trial to mainland China. These protests inspired the Hong Kong people to stand up against all of the injustices they have faced from China’s illegal encroachments on their politics. The protesters have five demands:23

  1. Complete withdrawal of the extradition bill
  2. No prosecution of the protesters
  3. Retraction of the characterization of the protests as “riots”
  4. Establish an independent inquiry into police misconduct
  5. Resignation of Carrie Lam and the implementation of universal suffrage

Their first demand has been met, but the others are equally important and the protests show no signs of slowing. Unfortunately, China shows no signs of slowing their crackdown either, and have been consistently escalating the matter. The police are now threatening to use live rounds on the protesters,24 and people are already being shot in the streets.25 China is going to kill the protesters, again.

The third demand — the retraction of the characterization of the demonstrations as “riots” — and the government’s refusal to meet it, conveys a lot about China’s true intentions. Chinese law defines rioting as a capital offense,26 and we’ve already demonstrated their willingness to execute political prisoners on a massive scale. These protesters are going to be killed if their demands aren’t met.27

Hong Kong is the place where humanity makes its stand against oppressors. The people of Hong Kong have been constant allies to the West, and their liberty is at stake. If we want others to stand up for us when our liberties are on the line, then it’s our turn to pay it forward now. The founding document of the United States of America28 describes the rights they’re defending as “unalienable” — endowed upon all people by their Creator. The people of Hong Kong are our friends and we’re watching them get killed for rights that we hold dear in our own nation’s founding principles.

We have a legal basis for demanding these rights for Hong Kong’s people — China is blatantly violating their autonomy, which they agreed to uphold in 1984. The United Kingdom should feel obligated to step in, but they’ll need the support of the international community, which we need to be prepared to give them. We need to make an ultimatum: if China uses deadly force in Hong Kong, the international community will respond in kind.

China isn’t the only perpetrator of genocide today, but they are persecuting our friends. China has the second highest GDP29 in the world, and somehow this makes it okay. If we won’t stand up to them, then who will? I call for a worldwide boycott of Chinese products, and of companies who kowtow to their demands or accept investment from China. I call for international condemnation of the Communist Party of China’s behavior and premise for governance. And I call for an ultimatum to protect our allies from slaughter.

A related term is “prisoner of conscience”, and for the purposes of this article I do not distinguish between the two; the execution of either kind of prisoner is a crime against humanity regardless.

Two countries, two systems

 Cache   

No passado domingo, em conversa com uma familiar residente nos Estados Unidos, ela comentava que era óbvio o que os manifestantes em Hong Kong queriam – two countries, two systems.
Acredito que com muitos seja efectivamente assim.
Não é segredo que há uma frente independentista em Hong Kong que conta com o apoio de uma faixa da população residente.
Uma faixa que muito claramente pede o impossível.
Impossível legalmente, impossível politicamente, impossível na prática.
A Declaração Conjunta e a Lei Básica consagram o conceito “um país, dois sistemas”.
Um conceito imaginado para integrar Macau e Hong Kong na grande China (eventualmente Taiwan...), nunca para permitir a qualquer uma das regiões administrativas especiais ser independente.
E vamos a questões práticas – como poderia qualquer uma das regiões administrativas especiais sobreviver sem o apoio da China? Da China de onde recebem todos os bens essenciais e as suas maiores fontes de receita?

Exemplos de civismo

 Cache   

Hong Kong e Macau tiveram mais uma oportunidade de verificar o civismo das suas populações.
Na perspectiva da participação e consciência política, muito especificamente.
Em Hong Kong, nas eleições para os conselhos distritais, a população saiu à rua em massa, de forma ordeira, com grande civismo, e demonstrou que não está contente com o rumo do segundo sistema, com a rápida aproximação ao primeiro sistema que Pequim e alguns sectores da sociedade, claramente minoritários, desejam.
Um dia sem violência e sem caos, com o tremendo poder do voto popular a falar muito mais alto que todos os berros sem sentido que se têm continuadamente ouvido.
Em Macau, no mesmo dia, nos processos eleitorais locais muito sui generis, conseguimos verificar na prática o que se diz em anedota ser o cúmulo da lentidão (correr sozinho e ficar em segundo).
Um único candidato e mesmo assim a eleição (sufrágio indirecto) fica manchada.
Sem comentários porque se afiguram de todo desnecessários.

IAM realiza trabalhos de manutenção de árvores perigosas para garantir segurança do público

 Cache   

        O Instituto para os Assuntos Municipais (IAM) iniciou os trabalhos de poda e manutenção de árvores, além da remoção de árvores murchas e afectadas pela podridão radicular no Parque Municipal da Colina da Guia no dia 25 de Novembro, a fim de garantir a segurança do público. Prevê-se que o trabalho esteja concluído no dia 19 de Dezembro. Durante este período, é necessário ocupar algum espaço público, pelo que o IAM solicita a compreensão dos cidadãos.

Após a ronda de fiscalização e a inspecção realizadas pelo pessoal do IAM, verificou-se que as árvores de Casuarina equisetifolia entraram em fase de declínio, apresentando-se sempre com ramos murchos. Nos seus troncos, encontram-se ainda muitos buracos, resultantes da quebra de ramos sofrida devido aos ventos fortes e tufões vividos ao longo dos anos, sobretudo os dois supertufões que passaram por Macau nos últimos anos, o que piorou a situação. Entre as mais afectadas, existem três árvores murchas que podem causar perigo potencial e devem ser cortadas. Para reduzir o risco da quebra dos ramos das restantes árvores de Casuarina equisetifolia, o IAM está a reduzir a altura das árvores. Além disso, as 25 árvores de Nogueira de Iguape, de Falsa Canforeira e figueira de tronco alaranjado com podridão radicular, que durante a inspecção se verificou estarem com infecção grave e ramos murchos, serão removidas. A par disso, o IAM irá ainda proceder à remoção de ramos murchos e à poda e manutenção de outras árvores, de modo a garantir a segurança do público.

Sendo necessário estacionar veículos de grande dimensão e deixar temporariamente os ramos cortados no local, durante a realização do trabalho, pedimos compreensão aos cidadãos e lamentamos o incómodo causado. O IAM espera ainda que as indicações no local sejam respeitadas, assim como a distância de segurança da área do trabalho. Se os cidadãos tiverem verificado anormalidades em árvores, por favor, queiram ligar para a Linha do Cidadão, através do n.º de telefone: 2833 7676, ou entrar no website http://app.iam.gov.mo/iamconnect ou IAM em Contacto, para comunicar a situação.

Comedian Anya Volz Returns to Vermont to Host 'Thirst Trap'

 Cache   
Comedian Anya Volz's big break rather literally came at the 2015 Vermont's Funniest Comedian contest at the Vermont Comedy Club — or, more specifically, a few nights before. Just prior to the annual local standup competition, Volz broke her leg. It would have been understandable — and probably her doctor's advice — for the comic to sit out the contest. But she chose to compete anyway.

"I was like, 'Oh my God. Am I really gonna do this really intense competition when I really should be in bed on pain meds?'" Volz recalls.

Performing on crutches for three straight nights, and forgoing painkillers in order to keep her mind clear, Volz took second place that year. That result led to regular feature appearances supporting nationally touring acts at the then-brand-new Burlington comedy club. Volz also curated her own regular standup showcase at VCC, called Welcome to Girlington.

The Rutland native, now 23, has since moved to New York City, where she's forging a career in comedy. She performs regularly at clubs all over the city. And she's begun making the rounds on the national festival circuit, appearing at the New York Comedy Festival, Gilda's LaughFest and the Women in Comedy Festival.

Volz is also an accomplished writer whose credits include Riot Fest, satirical music news website the Hard Times and Macauley Culkin's humor website, Bunny Ears.

Volz returns to Vermont this Wednesday, November 27, to present something of an alt-comedy variety show called Thirst Trap. That's the name of a monthly showcase she runs in NYC that she describes as "a show where art and culture meet comedy and satire."

Scheduled performers include local comedians Tracy Dolan, Mike Thomas and fellow NYC-via-Vermont comic Kendall Farrell. Also appearing are Burlington-based comic artist Rachel Lindsay and storyteller Maddy Jameson. Volz's friend, NYC comedian Gabby Bryan, cohosts the show.

Seven Days recently caught up with Volz by phone to talk about the show, how she got her start in comedy, the influx of Vermont comics to NYC and how she'd roast Tracy Dolan.

SEVEN DAYS: You started doing comedy at 18. How did you get into it?

Who Dares Wins, 1982 - ★★½

 Cache   

Here's Stewart Lee on 1982's Who Dares Wins;

"Who Dares Wins, my most hated film, was released in 1982. Former TV hardman Lewis Collins plays Peter Skellen, who is an SAS man rather than a chart-topping 1970’s MOR singer, attempting to infiltrate a thinly disguised offshoot of the Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament and prevent a terrorist outrage. It has bad acting, bad dialogue, terrible music and a crass title sequence. But it also sets out to demonise the 80’s soft-left using impossible stereotypes and barely concealed right-wing polemic. It is like a Daily Mail version of an action movie. Not only is Who Dares Wins rubbish, it is also evil, and an example of that cinematic rarity, the commercially released facist film. Nearly a quarter of a century after its completion, it now serves as an elegy for the death of the soft British left of the 70’s and 80’s, that will move anyone who came of age politically in the Red Wedge era to tears of regret. Like Tony Blair, Lewis Collins’ SAS man pretends to be one of the revolutionaries, and even manages to convince one of them to sleep with him, but eventually leads them to their doom, having been a puppet of American-British military interests all along. Oddly the only sympathetic character in the film is the leader of the anti-nuclear terrorists, played by a young Judy Davis, whose closing speech sounds impossibly idealistic when delivered to the generals soon to delight in her death. As Blake wrote of Milton’s Paradise Lost, it would appear that the screenwriters were of the devil’s party without knowing it"

I agree with Stewart Lee on virtually everything, and so it ought to come as no surprise that I could not agree with him more here. Of course I would, I am after all a socialist and fully paid up member of both the Labour Party and CND. In the past too I've even performed in an agit-prop theatre group like the one Judy Davis appears in here. Look, here I am performing street theatre in a similarly spooky, blank facemask to the ones used in this film. I was playing 'Big Business'. Oh yes. *Adopts Rik from The Young Ones voice* Right On!

Who Dares Wins is a ludicrous right-wing wet dream of a jingoistic fantasy, so dumb and tin-eared as to be absolutely laughable. For example, my own personal favourite scene is at the 'Rock Against the Bomb' concert in which, during the performance from a band called Metamorphosis, we see some skinheads bouncing up and down chanting 'Sieg Heil!'. Whilst it's true that the punk and post-punk scene had its fair share of Nazi-sympathetic subculture, it's particularly ignorant of the filmmakers to presume this would be present at a Rock Against...gig, considering it would clearly be an offshoot of the Rock Against Racism movement. There's nothing intelligent here; like the Daily Mail that Lee alludes to, the filmmakers are just lumping together all sorts of bits of anti-establishment culture they've heard of in an attempt to justify the right-wing antics of its 'heroes' and stir up moral panic. The first scene after the "crass title sequence" (which features extensive footage of the Cenotaph) is a march against the arrival of American nuclear missiles in the UK. The implication is clear; the filmmakers believe the fallen of WWI and WWII were a glorious generation who, rightly deserve our respect, but the current generation are beyond our contempt. Everyone present on that march, the CND, the pacifists, the socialists, the Labour Party, the Communist Party, the trade unions and the miners, are immediately depicted as evil or naive enough to be easily manipulated. Fancy being against nuclear weapons? What idiots! How dare they question our 'special relationship' with the US! What Commie bastards! Why can't they just shut up and stay subservient like plebs are supposed to? Just two years later, Thatcher coined the term 'the enemy within' to describe striking miners. Who Dares Wins had already painted anyone who dared to object to the policies of the British government as such in its opening sequence.

Producer Euan Lloyd was inspired to make Who Dares Wins when he, like millions of others up and down the UK, found himself glued to the very real drama of the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege being broadcast on TV. Moving quickly, he commissioned a synopsis from George Markstein which was subsequently turned into a screenplay by Reginald Rose. Rose had famously written Twelve Angry Men but, by this stage in his career, he had formed a creative relationship with Lloyd that saw him churn out screenplays for action thrillers like The Wild Geese (and its sequel) and The Sea Wolves. On his inspiration for the film, Lloyd remarked "I watched in awe at what these SAS men did, and truly I felt very proud. Terrorism worries me greatly, so here was an opportunity for me to say what I've felt for a long time". It was said that he hoped that the film's pro-authority stance would counterbalance the arguments of films like Missing, The China Syndrome, War Games and Gandhi. And that alone tells you all you need to know about Lloyd's politics and the absurd patriotism in Britain at the time as a result of the Falklands and Thatcher milking that ridiculous war for all it was worth to get her a second term.

For his leading man, Lloyd selected an actor who had impressed him in the TV series The Professionals; Lewis Collins. It was Lloyd's intention to make a genuine bona fide British action star out of Collins, in much the same way that Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman had made a star out of Sean Connery back in the 1960s with the early Bond films. Taking his cue from those two producers, Lloyd hired stylists to give Collins a more film star look; a good wardrobe, a new hair style etc, but ensured that the actor felt comfortable at all times by hiring Ian Sharp, one of the regular directors on The Professionals, to direct the movie. So confident in his find was Lloyd, that he signed Collins to a three-picture deal that would see the actor appear in The Wild Geese 2, Battle for the Falklands or Task Force South (a film about the Special Boat Service during the Falklands war) and Macau. However, for whatever reason, Collins didn't appear in The Wild Geese 2 and the other two projects were never made. Instead Collins moved into the Macaroni Combat genre, appearing in three films by Antonio Margheriti; the cheekily titled Code Name: Wild Geese, Commando Leopard and The Commander. There was talk of course around this time that Collins actually wanted to really join, and maybe even tried out for, the SAS. It was the talk of the playgrounds and can often still be raised in pubs to this day. When it is, I always call bullshit, arguing that how can Collins have possibly gone undercover in Northern Ireland, surely any OC in the IRA would have said "Hold on, isn't that the bloke from The Cuckoo Waltz?". Collins' star never really rose further above this, but he did clearly inspire Ross Kemp. So we can always blame him for that.

Essentially, Who Dares Wins is just an extended episode of The Professionals. The filmmakers seem to be having great fun creating SAS porn and playing with toys such as helicopters, hovercrafts and explosives and presumably they could not believe their luck in finding their film populated by the likes of Edward Woodward, Richard Widmark, Robert Webber and the voice of nuclear war himself, Patrick Allen, as figures of authority in what are relatively minor roles. To say nothing of a batshit crazy Ingrid Pitt cast as a relic from the Baader–Meinhof Gang. Weirdly, for a film inspired by the Iranian Embassy siege, Who Dares Wins takes a very long time in actually tackling anything approaching a siege; in its far too long two hour run time, it's not until the final forty-five minutes that hostages are taken and the SAS, who had until that point been twatting about in Herefordshire under the beady eyes of Maurice Roëves and Tony Doyle, show up to become reunited with Collins and gun down all those peace-loving bastards.

And yet, for all my grumbling and for all my utter agreement with Stewart Lee, I do have a soft spot for Who Dares Wins simply because, like a lot of its more successful and flashy Cannon counterparts (The Delta Force, Invasion USA etc) it represents a key part of entertainment from my childhood. As a gripping and engaging action thriller, it does depreciate to my eyes with each passing watch and, if I were the age I am now, or maybe a little younger, when this came out, I would have probably absolutely hated it on sight for all those reasons Stewart Lee puts forward and what I have laid out here myself. However, viewed now perhaps, it's all really rather naff and so ridiculous as to be impossible to take seriously. Nevertheless, there's always a little guilty twinge I feel at the prospect of the likes of Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson watching it and nursing a semi throughout.

One thing I can't agree with Stewart Lee's critique though is his stance on the music. It's deeply repetitive yeah, but it's not terrible. It's Roy Budd after all and, though he's clearly composed this with one eye on the clock waiting for the pubs to open, Budd was never terrible.

By the way, Judy Davis hated the film and immediately came out to attack and disown on it upon its release. I cannot imagine it appearing on her CV.

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!北朝鮮人権問題国際シンポジウム開催》

■北朝鮮人権問題国際シンポジウムを開催します
12月14日(土)、北朝鮮人権侵害問題啓発週間関連行事として政府主催国際シンポジウム~グローバルな課題としての拉致問題の解決に向けた国際連携~を開催します。
毎年12月10日から16日までは「北朝鮮人権侵害問題啓発週間」です。北朝鮮による拉致問題は、我が国の主権及び国民の生命と安全に関わる重大な問題であり、日本政府は、全ての拉致被害者の1日も早い帰国を実現すべく、政府の総力を挙げて最大限の努力を続けております。同時に、拉致問題の解決のためには、アメリカを始めとする関係国との緊密な連携が重要であり、日本政府は、多国間の枠組みや二国間協議を含むあらゆる外交上の機会を捉えて、拉致問題を取り上げてきています。

少女拉致容疑事案
被害者:横田めぐみさん(Megumi Yokota)
(拉致被害時13歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
新潟市において下校途中に失踪。
平成16年11月に開催された第3回実務者協議において、北朝鮮側はめぐみさんが1994(平成6)年4月に死亡したとし「遺骨」を提出したが、めぐみさんの「遺骨」とされた骨の一部からは同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
平成18年4月には日本政府の実施したDNA検査により、横田めぐみさんの夫が昭和53年に韓国より拉致された当時高校生の韓国人拉致被害者・金英男(キム・ヨンナム)氏である可能性が高いことが判明した。

[November 15, 1977: Young girl abducted]

Abductee: Megumi Yokota (13, female, Niigata Prefecture)
Disappeared on her way home from school in Niigata City.
During the third round of Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations in November 2004, North Korea claimed that Megumi Yokota died in April 1994 and handed over what it claimed were her remains. DNA analysis, however, indicates that some of the bones from these remains belong in fact to a different person or persons.
Additional DNA analysis conducted in April 2006 by the GoJ indicated a high probability that Kim Young-Nam, a Korean citizen abducted from the Republic of Korea in 1978 when he was a high-school student, was married to Ms. Yokota.

◆昭和53(1978)年6月頃
李恩恵(リ・ウネ)拉致容疑事案
被害者:田口八重子さん(Yaeko Taguchi)
(拉致被害時22歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
昭和62年11月の大韓航空機(KAL)爆破事件で有罪判決を受けた元北朝鮮諜報員金賢姫(キム・ヒョンヒ)氏は「李恩恵(リ・ウネ)」という女性から日本人の振る舞い方を学んだと主張している。この李恩恵は行方不明となった田口さんと同一人物と考えられる。
北朝鮮側は、田口さんは1984(昭和59)年に原 敕晁さんと結婚し、1986(昭和61)年の原さんの病死後すぐに自動車事故で死亡したとしているが、これを裏付ける資料等の提供はなされていない。
平成21年3月、金賢姫氏と飯塚家との面会において、金氏より田口さんの安否にかかる重要な参考情報(注)が新たに得られたことから、現在、同情報についての確認作業を進めている。
(注)金氏の発言:「87年1月にマカオから帰ってきて、2月か3月頃、運転手から田口さんがどこか知らないところに連れて行かれたと聞いた。86年に一人暮らしの被害者を結婚させたと聞いたので、田口さんもどこかに行って結婚したのだと思った」

※「八重子さんが北朝鮮の南浦港に着いたとき、女性通訳に“私には子供が二人いて、どうしても日本に帰らなくてはならないので、返してほしい”と何回も言ってお願いしたそうです。八重ちゃんの思いは最初から最後まで子供のことでいっぱいでしたし、今でも間違い無く“今、彩ちゃんはいくつになって、耕ちゃんはいくつになった”と毎年計算して、どんな大人になったか知りたがっているはずです。すごく会いたがっていると思います」

[In or around June 1978: Lee Un-Hae abducted]

Abductee: Yaeko Taguchi (22, female, Unknown)
Kim Hyon-Hui, a former North Korean agent convicted of the bombing of a Korean Airlines jet in November 1982, claims to have been trained to blend into Japanese society by a woman named Lee Un-Hae. Lee Un-Hae is thought to be Yaeko Taguchi, a woman reported as missing in Japan.
North Korea asserts that Ms. Taguchi married Tadaaki Hara in 1984 and, soon after Mr. Hara’s death from illness in 1986, died in an automobile accident. North Korea has, however, provided no documents or evidence to support these claims.
At a meeting in March 2009 between members of the Iizuka family, relatives of Ms. Yaeko Taguchi, and Kim Hyon-Hui, important new information regarding the whereabouts of Ms. Taguchi (see note) was gained from Ms. Kim. The GoJ is currently working to confirm this information.
Note: Ms. Kim said: "After returning from Macau in January 1987, I heard from a driver in February or March that Ms. Taguchi had been taken to an unknown location. I'd heard that in 1986 an abductee living alone had been made to marry, so I thought that Ms. Taguchi must also have gone somewhere to get married."

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.
