Mr. and Mrs. Adam (Mary 'nee Kopca) Klimek, Jr. c. 1980s

 Cache   

The Adam Klimek, Jr. Family is considered one of the Founding Families of Slavia even though the patriarch and his wife did not become permanent residents of Slavia (the Lutheran Haven) until the mid-1970s. Early in Slavia's history, c. 1912-13. Adam Klimek, Jr. (a brother to the wife of Paul Lukas) was called upon to assist with the repairs at the sawmill that was so important to the new settlers in building their homes and barns. Although Adam and his wife raised their three sons in Lakewood, OH, they maintained a second home in Slavia and often stayed in Florida for months at a time, attending St. Luke's, and were actively involved with congregational life during those periods. Adam, Jr. was born in Slovakia in 1890 and died in Florida in 1987. His wife, Mary, was then cared for at the Lutheran Haven Nursing Home until her own death in 1993. One of the couple's three sons (Albert) maintained his own relationship with St. Luke's and the Slavia community over the years and eventually moved to the Lutheran Haven, where he and his wife spent their last years. Photo image, c.1980s.

Images of the ancestral church attended by the family of Andrew Duda, Sr. and his family before their emigration to the United States.

It is located in Slovakia, which was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. The large chandelier shown in the photo of the interior was presented during a visit to the church in the 1960s by John and Katie Duda (as a replacement for the original fixture, which had been damaged). More than 35 descendants of Andrew Duda, Sr. and his wife, Katarina, worshiped together in the ancestral church in 2009, to commemorate Andrew's emigration to America one hundred years earlier.

Measuring the third dimension

Greg Blackman looks at the latest techniques to capture and analyse 3D image data

Surface-based matching in Halcon, from MVTec Software

The 3D imaging market is set to be transformed by investment pumped into the automotive and consumer sectors. Last year, in this magazine, Yole Développement’s Dr Guillaume Girardin said those markets will push 3D sensing beyond $18bn by 2023.

Automotive is going through a self-driving revolution, which needs a lot of sensing capabilities. One is lidar, or light detection and ranging. There are many variations in the technology – differences in the laser wavelength that is pulsed out, the signal returning from which gives a map of the environment; differences in the method used to scan the laser light; and other intricacies. Bill Gates is funding a lidar startup, Lumotive, with beam steering technology based on metasurfaces; BMW has signed an agreement with Israeli firm Innoviz for its solid-state lidar; while Outsight, at the recent Autosens conference in Brussels, introduced a 3D camera that combines lidar with hyperspectral analysis.

In the consumer market, Apple’s iPhone X, along with phones from Xiaomi, Huawei and others, have 3D sensing technology for face recognition.

All this investment in 3D sensing bodes well for industrial imaging, as technology developed for larger markets, like consumer, trickles down to the niche machine vision sector. Sony, for instance, is developing time-of-flight (ToF) sensing technology for applications such as gesture control in cars or mobile devices. It now offers its DepthSense ToF sensor that combines CMOS with SoftKinetic’s ToF technology, which Sony bought in 2015. The DepthSense sensor is already used in industrial cameras like Lucid Vision Labs’ Helios camera and Basler’s Blaze 3D camera. Helios delivers 640 x 480-pixel depth resolution at a 6m working distance, with four 850nm VCSEL laser diodes.

ToF, which operates on a similar principle to lidar but without scanning the laser beam, has its place among industrial 3D solutions. The technique does not offer very precise depth data, but it is sufficient for applications in logistics, for example, to give the dimensions of boxes. Other 3D imaging methods include: structured light, like systems provided by Isra Vision; stereovision, such as the technology from Scorpion Vision or the new Visionary S stereo camera from Sick; and triangulation, like that from LMI Technologies. All have benefits and flaws, and applications for which they work well.

Slovakian firm Photoneo won the 2018 Vision Award, presented at the Vision show in Stuttgart, for its parallel structured light technology, which can capture around half a million 3D points at 20fps. Each sub-pixel in Photoneo’s sensor can be controlled by a unique modulation signal. The camera uses structured light, but transfers individual coded light patterns to the sub-pixels in the sensor, where they are sampled at one point in time. This means the camera projects one pattern and captures one image but can get multiple virtual images from it, each illuminated by a different light pattern. It is also possible to switch the sensor into a sequential mode and get the full 2-megapixel resolution with metrology-grade quality. It means the technology gives the high resolution and accuracy of structured light, but can also capture objects in motion.

Software solutions

There are many ways to analyse 3D data, although the recommendation from Luzia Beisiegel, product owner of the Halcon library at MVTec Software, is to do as much as possible in the 2D space, ‘because it is simpler, more intuitive and faster’, she said.

Each 3D application starts with a pre-processing step, to remove unnecessary information, such as outliers from the point cloud. Beisiegel explained that this is normally based on a standard blob analysis applied on the z-mapping, which she said is much more intuitive and faster than doing the same operations in the 3D space on non-ordered point clouds.

The latest version of Halcon, 19.11, includes a function called Generic Box Finder, which allows the user to find boxes of different sizes in a predefined range of height, width, and depth, based on point cloud information. It addresses applications that have to handle boxes of different, unknown sizes, such as in logistics and pharmaceutical industries.

‘The requirement for using the Generic Box Finder is that point clouds are ordered,’ said Beisiegel. ‘This means that 3D point cloud 
co-ordinates can be mapped onto 2D image co-ordinates. The resulting images are called xyz-mappings and can be attached as attributes, for instance, to the point cloud format om3d.’

Most of the relevant 3D operators in Halcon have a mapping mode integrated, such as the Sample Object Model 3D operator. This mode is around five times faster than working in the 3D space on non-ordered point clouds, said Beisiegel. 

‘On Windows systems, it is difficult to reach real-time 3D image processing,’ she added. ‘However, we are always working on improving the speed of our operators, including our 3D operators. We do this by using ordered point clouds, and we have already most of these modes integrated in Halcon.’

A 3D application, where the height image has encoded in its grey-values the 
z co-ordinate mapped onto 2D co-ordinates, can be processed on embedded hardware. There are a lot of 3D applications that can be solved in this way, according to Beisiegel – reading embossed text and numbers, detecting surface defects, or measuring heights; all those applications can be solved without needing a lot of memory or a powerful CPU, because it is based on 2D information. Point-cloud processing, on the other hand, requires a lot more memory, because there is more information to be processed.

Standard 3D applications in industrial automation – such as in the assembly sector – include 3D measurement, bin picking and surface comparison. In some cases, especially for more robust bin picking, the shape of the part is known in the form of a CAD model.

Other markets include logistics and agriculture, both of which generally don’t have major requirements in terms of accuracy, but here the major challenge is handling objects of unknown shapes and sizes.

There are also pick-and-place applications where the shape is only partially known. A 3D surface is described by 3D point co-ordinates and normal directions. Based on those two attributes, a point cloud can be segmented according to different features, such as difference of neighbouring normals, curvature feature, or the area of the surface (the number of points). In Halcon it is possible to segment objects based on normal directions or other surface information.

Other software packages, such as those from Matrox Imaging or Stemmer Imaging’s Common Vision Blox, all have comprehensive libraries for working with 3D data. New in Sherlock 7 vision software, from Teledyne Dalsa, is a tool called Shape Extraction, which extracts raised or indented features, such as embossed characters or stamped and engraved markings.

Beisiegel, at MVTec, said the firm is trying to make its 3D tools as simple as possible for the user. This is the focus of the Generic Box Finder, for instance – it has a simple interface where the user enters intuitive parameters, while other, more complex parameters run in the background as a default.

‘For noisy point clouds it can be difficult to estimate default parameters,’ noted Beisiegel. Noise can be from reflective materials, or not enough texture available on the surface for a stereovision sensor without a pattern projector, for example. In such cases the image processing library needs to process those noisy point clouds. ‘Automation of processes is one of the focuses of our algorithms,’ she said.

‘Imaging boxes of unknown size is challenging,’ Beisiegel added, in relation to Halcon’s Generic Box Finder. Boxes are 3D objects, but if viewed from above they can be seen as a 2D plane. Another challenge is that when boxes are close together, the edges are not clear. ‘There are a lot of challenges that still need to be solved in this application,’ she concluded.

The optional 53 hp (39 kW) CVCC engine displaced 1488 cc and had a head design that promoted cleaner, more efficient combustion. The CVCC design eliminated the need for catalytic converters or unleaded fuel to meet changing emissions standards, unlike nearly every other U.S. market car. Due to California's stricter emissions standards, only the CVCC powered Civic was available in that state. This created a sales advantage in Honda's favor in that CVCC equipped Honda products afforded the buyer the ability to choose any type of fuel the buyer wanted, and due to emissions equipment not being damaged by using leaded fuel, the buyer could use any gasoline products available. This was also an advantage due to some regions of North America having to ration available gasoline supplies due to periodic shortages at the time. A five-speed manual transmission became available in 1974, as did a Civic station wagon (only with the 1500 CVCC engine), which had a wheelbase of 89.9 inches (228 cm) and an overall length of 160 inches (406 cm). Power for this version is 75 PS (55 kW) in the Japanese domestic market. Civic sales also increased and topped 100,000 units for this year.

Louis C.K. Tells Israeli Audience He’d ‘Rather Be In Auschwitz Than New York City’

 Cache   

Disgraced comedian Louis C.K. inserted his foot in his mouth again, telling an audience in Israel that he’d prefer to be in the concentration camp where millions of Jewish people were massacred than be in New York City.

“I’d rather be in Auschwitz than New York City,” C.K. said during a Thanksgiving night performance in Holon, a city south of Tel Aviv, according to multiple reports.

“I mean now, not when it was open,” he added.

Auschwitz was a concentration camp built and operated by Nazi Germany where 1.1 million men, women and children were exterminated during World War II, including 865,000 Jews who were gassed on arrival. Many who were not gassed died of starvation, beatings and disease.

Although many on social media got a belly laugh out of the joke – one Twitter user said they bought tickets to his show because of it – and the Daily News reported that “the audience burst into applause” for the comedian, others on Twitter went berserk:

C.K., who is of Jewish descent, is in the middle of an international comedy tour that includes sold-out shows in Slovakia, along with performances in Hungary and a series of U.S. shows in Detroit, Akron, Reading, Mobile, New Orleans and Houston.

During his Holon set, C.K. also addressed his behavior as being wrong, according to the New York Daily News.

“If they say ‘yes,’ then still don’t do it, because it’s not popular,” he said in apparent reference to the growing #MeToo movement.

But this isn’t the first time C.K. has referenced masturbating in front of women during a comedy set. Earlier this year in a San Jose comedy club, C.K. told the audience, “I like to jerk off, and I don’t like being alone.”

Neville Chamberlain, Sir Horace Wilson, & Britain's Plight of Appeasement

 Cache   

 

Adapted from Fighting Churchill, Appeasing Hitler by Adrian Phillips, published by Pegasus Books. Reprinted with permission. All other rights reserved.

 

In 1941, as his time in office drew to a close, the head of the British Civil Service, Sir Horace Wilson, sat down to write an account of the government policy with which he had been most closely associated. It was also the defining policy of Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister whom Wilson had served as his closest adviser throughout his time in office. It had brought Chamberlain immense prestige, but this had been followed very shortly afterwards by near-universal criticism. Under the title ‘Munich, 1938’, Wilson gave his version of the events leading up to the Munich conference of 30 September 1938, which had prevented – or, as proved to be the case, delayed – the outbreak of another world war at the cost of the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia. By then the word ‘appeasement’ had acquired a thoroughly derogatory meaning. Chamberlain had died in 1940, leaving Wilson to defend their joint reputation. Both men had been driven by the highest of motivations: the desire to prevent war. Both had been completely convinced that their policy was the correct one at the time and neither ever admitted afterwards that they might have been wrong.

 

After he had completed his draft, Wilson spotted that he could lay the blame for appeasement on someone else’s shoulders. Better still, it was someone who now passed as an opponent of appeasement. In an amendment to the typescript, he pointed out that in 1936, well before Chamberlain became Prime Minister, Anthony Eden, the then Foreign Secretary, had stated publicly that appeasement was the government’s policy. The point seemed all the more telling as Eden had been edged out of government by Chamberlain and Wilson in early 1938 after a disagreement over foreign policy. Eden had gone on to become a poster-boy for the opponents of appeasement, reaping his reward in 1940 when Chamberlain fell. Chamberlain’s successor, Winston Churchill, had appointed Eden once again as Foreign Secretary. Wilson was so pleased to have found reason to blame appeasement on Eden that he pointed it out a few years later to the first of Chamberlain’s Cabinet colleagues to write his memoirs.

 

Wilson’s statement was perfectly accurate, but it entirely distorted the truth, because it ignored how rapidly and completely the mean­ing of the word ‘appeasement’ had changed. When Eden first used the word, it had no hostile sense. It meant simply bringing peace and was in common use this way. ‘Appease’ also meant to calm someone who was angry, again as a positive act, but Eden never said that Britain’s policy was to ‘appease’ Hitler, Nazi Germany, Mussolini or Fascist Italy. Nor, for that matter, did Chamberlain use the word in that way. The hostile sense of the word only developed in late 1938 or 1939, blend­ing these two uses of the word to create the modern sense of making shameful concessions to someone who is behaving unacceptably. The word ‘appeasement’ has also become a shorthand for any aspect of Brit­ish foreign policy of the 1930s that did not amount to resistance to the dictator states. This is a very broad definition, and it should not mask the fact that the word is being used here in its modern and not its con­temporary sense. The foreign policy that gave the term a bad name was a distinct and clearly identifiable strategy that was consciously pursued by Chamberlain and Wilson. 

 

When Chamberlain became Prime Minister in May 1937, he was confronted by a dilemma. The peace of Europe was threatened by the ambitions of the two aggressive fascist dictators, Hitler in Germany and Mussolini in Italy. Britain did not have the military strength to face Germany down; it had only just begun to rearm after cutting its armed forces to the bone in the wake of the First World War and was at the last gasp of strategic over-reach with its vast global empire. Chamberlain chose to solve the problem by setting out to develop a constructive dialogue with Hitler and Mussolini. He hoped to build a relationship of trust which would allow the grievances of the dictator states to be settled by negotiation and to avoid the nightmare of another war. In other words, Chamberlain sought to appease Europe through discus­sion and engagement. In Chamberlain’s eyes this was a positive policy and quite distinct from what he castigated as the policy of ‘drift’ that his predecessors in office, Ramsay MacDonald and Stanley Baldwin, had pursued. Under their control, progressive stages in aggression by the dictators had been met with nothing more than ineffectual protests, which had antagonised them without deterring them. 

 

Chamberlain’s positive approach to policy was the hallmark of his diplomacy. He wanted to take the initiative at every turn, most famously in his decision to fly to see Hitler at the height of the Sudeten crisis. Often his initiatives rested on quite false analyses; quite often the dictators pre-empted him. But Chamberlain was determined that no oppor­tunity for him to do good should be allowed to escape. The gravest sin possible was the sin of omission. At first his moves were overwhelming­ly aimed at satisfying the dictators. Only after Hitler’s seizure of Prague in March 1938 did deterring them from further aggression become a major policy goal. Here, external pressures drove him to make moves that ran counter to his instincts, but they were still usually his active choices. Moreover, the deterrent moves were balanced in a dual policy in which Hitler was repeatedly given fresh opportunities to negotiate a settlement of his claims, implicitly on generous terms. 

 

Appeasement reached its apogee in the Czech crisis of 1938. Chamberlain was the driving force behind the peaceful settlement of German claims on the Sudetenland. He was rewarded with great, albeit short-lived, kudos for having prevented a war that had seemed almost inev­itable. He also secured an entirely illusory reward, when he tried to transform the pragmatic and unattractive diplomatic achievement of buying peace with the independence of the Sudetenland into something far more idealistic. Chamberlain bounced Hitler into signing a bilateral Anglo-German declaration that the two countries would never go to war. Chamberlain saw this as the first building block in creating a lasting relationship of trust between the two countries. It was this declaration, rather than the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia under the four-power treaty signed by Britain, France, Germany and Italy, that Chamberlain believed would bring ‘peace for our time’, the true appeasement of Europe. At the start of his premiership, Chamberlain had yearned to get ‘onto terms with the Germans’; he thought that he had done just that. 

 

Appeasing Europe through friendship with the dictators also required the rejection of anything that threatened this friendship. One of the most conspicuous threats was a single individual: Winston Church­ill. Almost from the beginning of Hitler’s dictatorship Churchill had argued that it was vital to Britain’s interests to oppose Nazi Germany by force, chiefly by rearming. Unlike most other British statesmen, Churchill recognised in Hitler an implacable enemy and he deployed the formidable power of his rhetoric to bring this home in Parliament and in the press. But Churchill was a lone voice. When he had opposed granting India a small measure of autonomy in the early 1930s, he had moved into internal opposition to the Conservative Party. Only a handful of MPs remained loyal to him. Churchill was also handicapped by a widespread bad reputation that sprang from numerous examples of his poor judgement and political opportunism. 

Chamberlain was determined on a policy utterly opposed to Churchill’s view of the world. He enjoyed a very large majority in Parliament and faced no serious challenge in his own Cabinet. Chamberlain and Wilson were so convinced that their policy was correct that they saw opposition as dangerously irresponsible and had no hesitation in using the full powers at their disposal to crush it. Churchill never had a real chance of altering this policy. It would have sent a signal of resolve to Hitler to bring him back into the Cabinet, but this was precisely the kind of gesture that Chamberlain was desperate to avoid. Moreover, Chamberlain and Wilson each had personal reasons to be suspicious of Churchill as well as sharing the prevalent hostile view of him that dominated the political classes. Wilson and Churchill had clashed at a very early stage in their careers and Chamberlain had had a miserable time as Churchill’s Cabinet colleague under Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin. Chamberlain and Wilson had worked closely to fight a – largely imaginary and wildly exaggerated – threat from Churchill’s support for Edward VIII in the abdication crisis of 1936. 

 

Churchill was right about Hitler and Chamberlain was wrong. The history of appeasement is intertwined with the history of Churchill. According to legend Churchill said, ‘Alas, poor Chamberlain. History will not be kind to him. And I shall make sure of that, for I shall write that history.’ Whatever Churchill might actually have said on the point barely matters; the witticism expresses a mindset that some subsequent historians have striven to reverse. The low opinion of Chamberlain is the mirror image of the near idolatry of Churchill. In some cases, his­torians appear to have been motivated as much by dislike of Churchill – and he had many flaws – as by positive enthusiasm for Chamberlain. Steering the historical debate away from contemporary polemic and later hagiography has sometimes had the perverse effect of polarising the discussion rather than shifting it onto emotionally neutral territory. Defending appeasement provides perfect material for the ebb and flow of academic debate, often focused on narrow aspects of the question. At the last count, the school of ‘counter-revisionism’ was being challenged by a more sympathetic view of Chamberlain. 

 

Chamberlain’s policy failed from the start. The dictators were happy to take what was on offer, but gave as good as nothing in return. Chamberlain entirely failed to build worthwhile relationships. Chamberlain’s advocates face the challenge that his policy failed entirely. Chamberlain’s defenders advance variants of the thesis that Wilson embodied in ‘MUNICH, 1941’: that there was no realistic alternative to appeasement given British military weakness. This argument masks the fact that it is practically impossible to imagine a worse situation than the one that confronted Churchill, when he succeeded Chamberlain as Prime Minister in May 1940. The German land attack in the west was poised to destroy France, exposing Britain to a German invasion. It also ducks the fact that securing peace by seeking friendship with the dictators was an active policy, pursued as a conscious choice and not imposed by circumstances. 

Chamberlain’s foreign policy is by far the most important aspect of his premiership and the attention that it demands has rather crowded out the examination of other aspects of his time at Downing Street. Discussion of his style of government has focused on the accusation that he imposed his view of appeasement on a reluctant Cabinet, which has been debated with nearly the same vigour as the merits or otherwise of the policy itself. In the midst of this, little attention has been paid to Wilson, even though Chamberlain’s latest major biographer – who is broadly favourable to his subject – concedes he was ‘the éminence grise of the Chamberlain regime … gatekeeper, fixer and trusted sounding board’.Martin Gilbert, one of Chamberlain’s most trenchant critics, made a start on uncovering Wilson’s full role in 1982 with an article in History Today, but few have followed him. There have been an academic examination of his Civil Service career and an academic defence of his involvement in appeasement.Otherwise, writers across the spec­trum of opinions on appeasement have contented themselves with the unsupported assertion that Wilson was no more than a civil servant.Wilson does, though, appear as a prominent villain along with Chamberlain’s shadowy political adviser, Sir Joseph Ball, in Michael Dobbs’s novel about appeasement,Winston’s War. 

 

Dismissing Wilson as merely a civil servant begs a number of questions. The British Civil Service has a proud tradition and ethos of political neutrality, but it strains credulity to expect that this has invariably been fully respected. Moreover, at the period when Wilson was active, the top level of the Civil Service was still evolving, with many of its tasks and responsibilities being fixed by accident of personality or initiative from the Civil Service side. Wilson’s own position as adviser to the Prime Minister with no formal job title or remit was unprecedented and has never been repeated. Chamberlain valued his political sense highly and Wilson did not believe that his position as a civil servant should restrict what he advised on political tactics or appointments. Even leaving the debate over appeasement aside, Wilson deserves attention. 

 

Wilson was so close to Chamberlain that it is impossible to understand Chamberlain’s premiership fully without looking at what Wilson did. The two men functioned a partnership, practically as a unit. Even under the extreme analysis of the ‘mere civil servant’ school whereby Wilson was never more than an obedient, unreflecting executor of Chamberlain’s wishes, his acts should be treated as Chamberlain’s own acts and thus as part of the story of his premiership. It is practically impossible to measure Wilson’s own autonomous and distinctive input compared to Chamberlain’s, but there can be no argument that he represented the topmost level of government. 

 

Wilson’s hand is visible in every major aspect of Chamberlain’s premiership and examining what he did throws new light almost everywhere. Wilson’s influence on preparations for war – in rearming the Royal Air Force and developing a propaganda machine – makes plain that neither he nor Chamberlain truly expected war to break out. One of the most shameful aspects of appeasement were the measures willingly undertaken to avoid offending the dictators, either by government action or by comment in the media; Wilson carries a heavy responsibility here. 

 

Above all it was Wilson’s role in foreign policy that defined his partnership with Chamberlain and the Chamberlain premiership as a whole. He was also the key figure in the back-channel diplomacy pursued with Germany that showed the true face of appeasement. Wilson carries much of the responsibility for the estrangement between Chamberlain and the Foreign Office, which was only temporarily checked when its political and professional leaderships were changed. Chamberlain and Wilson shared almost to the end a golden vision of an appeased Europe, anchored on friendship between Britain and Germany, which was increasingly at odds with the brutal reality of conducting diplomacy with Hitler. The shift to a two-man foreign policy machine culminated in the back-channel attempts in the summer of 1939 intended to keep the door open to a negotiated settlement of the Polish crisis with Hitler, but which served merely to convince him that the British feared war so much that they would not stand by Poland. Chamberlain and Wilson had aimed to prevent war entirely; instead they made it almost inevitable.

Plasma markers of oxidative status were associated with increasing continuous cardiometabolic risk scores in healthy students aged 16-20 years without central obesity.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 12;107(12):2137-2145

Authors: Koborová I, Gurecká R, Csongová M, Šebek J, Šebeková K

Abstract
AIM: We studied the association between increased cardiometabolic risk and markers of oxidative status and glycation in apparently healthy subjects who did not present with central obesity.
METHODS: From 2011 to 2012, we recruited 2064 students (53% girls) aged 16-20 years from Western Slovakia. Their continuous metabolic syndrome scores (MSS) were calculated as a mean of the sum of the z-scores of waist-to-height ratio, mean arterial pressure, triacylglycerols, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol and quantitative insulin sensitivity check index. Plasma markers of protein glycation and oxidation, lipid peroxidation and total antioxidant status were analysed.
RESULTS: In both genders, advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) increased across the MSS quintiles (p < 0.001). AOPPs and fructosamines were significant predictors of the MSS in both genders. Moreover, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, leukocyte counts and advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) contributed significantly in girls. Triacylglycerols, fructosamines, AGEs and total antioxidant capacity correlated significantly with AOPPs in both genders.
CONCLUSION: Advanced oxidation protein products may act as inflammatory mediators that contribute to the development of cardiometabolic afflictions. Determining these may provide information related to cardiometabolic risk and represent potential target to reduce or prevent irreversible oxidative stress-induced cellular damage.

Portugal, France and Germany in Euro 2020 super group

Germany coach Joachim Loew, Portugal coach Fernando Santos and France coach Didier Deschamps pose with the trophy after being drawn in group E.

BUCHAREST, Saturday - Defending champions Portugal and the last two world champions, France and Germany, were thrown together in what German coach Joachim Loew described as the group of death following a lop-sided and complicated Euro 2020 draw on Saturday.

England were drawn against Croatia in a repeat of last year’s World Cup semi-final while other favourites were given a much easier ride in the 24-team tournament which will be played in 12 different countries across the region.

The clear pick of the six first round pools was Group F, to be played in Munich and Budapest, which pitted France, Portugal and Germany, plus the winners of either playoff A or D. However, the sting was slightly taken away by the format which allows four of the six third-placed teams to qualify for the round of 16, UEFA’s decision to rank the teams according to their result in the qualifiers, combined with Portugal’s performance in their group, meant they ended up among the third seeds while France were one of the second seeds.

“This is a group of death,” said Loew whose side will play all three games at home under competition rules. “The expectations will be quite high. For our young team, this will be huge challenge but also a big motivation.”

England and Croatia, who have met in the Nations League since Croatia’s 2-1 win in Moscow last year, will be joined in Group D by the Czech Republic and the winners of playoff C - either Scotland, Norway, Serbia or Israel.

The Group D winners will face the runners-up from Germany’s group in the round of 16 while the second-placed team will travel to Copenhagen to meet the Group E runners-up - potentially an easier match.

The Group will be played in London - host for the semi-finals and final - and Glasgow.

Other favourites were given a much easier-looking ride.

Italy, who won all 10 qualifying games as they bounced back from failing to make the last World Cup, will face Turkey, Wales and Switzerland in Group A, in Rome and Baku.

“We have a slight advantage by playing at home. Maybe some will think we are favourites but we need to confirm everything on the pitch, as always,” Italy coach Roberto Mancini said.

Euro 2008 and 2012 champions Spain, who will jointly host Group E in Bilbao with Dublin, play Sweden, Poland and playoff winner B - either Bosnia, Slovakia, Ireland or Northern Ireland.

Belgium’s opponents in Group B will be Denmark and Russia -who are both host nations - and Finland, who will be making their first appearance in a European Championship or World Cup. The Netherlands, who like Italy missed out on the last World Cup, were pitted against Ukraine, Austria and playoff winner A or D in Group C, which will be played in Amsterdam and Bucharest.

Under the complex rules, all host nations will play their group games at home, meaning a number of teams had been allocated their groups before the draw

“The rules are clear, they were accepted by everybody,” said UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti. “Portugal are in pot three because they didn’t win their group, and the winner of their group was Ukraine. And Ukraine, thanks to their results, are in pot one, and everybody accepts it because once again we have clear rules.” – Agencies

NATO and the Trump Administration

On December 3 4, 2019 the 70th anniversary of NATO, the collective military self defense alliance of 29 countries, will be held outside London. It remains to be seen if this gathering will be of one of celebration, or of feuding and tension, whether it is an organization that is obsolete or still relevant. Differences over this have been expressed in the last month as a result of a strong negative statement by French President Emmanuel Macron on November 7, 2019 and a series of rebuttals by others. Fearing a Communist expansion in Europe, and after the Communist overthrow of the democratic government of Czechoslovakia in February 1948, the U.S. and 11 other countries founded NATO on April 4, 1949, the basis of the Western military bulwark against the Soviet Union.

: Heavy rain south - Dry & bright for many Tuesday, 02 Dez - 04:43

 Cache   

Heavy rain and snow affects southern parts of Europe through the next two days Monday Heavy outbreaks of rain affecting southeastern Spain on Monday. Drier and brighter to the northwest and for Portugal. Heavy rain continues too for northern Italy and spreads into the northern Balkan states turning to snow over the Dinaric Alps. Increasing cloud over Greece with isolated showers to the west. Dry and sunny for much of Turkey. A mostly dry and bright day for France, the Low Countries and Germany. Feeling cold with isolated showers for northern coasts. Some snow showers over Switzerland, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia while it stays mostly dry but cloudy for the Czech Republic. A cloudy day for Poland too with scattered snow showers. A dry day for Denmark with varying amounts of cloud. Snow clears east from the Baltic States to leave a bright but cold end to the day here. Continuing windy for much of Norway, Sweden and Finland with snow becoming confined to northern areas and to the western coast of Norway. Plenty of good spells of sunshine here.

Tuesday Heavy outbreaks of rain continue for southeast Spain, spreading to the Balearic Islands later. Dry and bright for the rest of Spain and Portugal. Showery rain and cloud clear to the south from Italy with dry and sunny conditions following from the north. A band of rain affects northern portions of Greece and Turkey but it stays dry and bright to the south. High pressure brings dry and settled conditions to a large part of Europe on Tuesday. A chilly but sunny day for much of France, the Low Countries, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. Any early snow showers over eastern areas quickly clear away. A band of showery rain spread across Norway, Denmark and Sweden. This turns to snow over higher ground and to the north. Rain reaches Finland later but ahead of this it's a dry and bright day. Dry and sunny too for the Baltic States though cloud builds form the west later.


          

Climate Action Day: A Just Transition from Coal Where No One is Left Behind

 Cache   
Republic Thermal Power Plant, Bulgaria © WWF-BulgariaEvery region and every community is different. As EU countries wake up to the climate emergency and the need for a swift transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral society, it is becoming increasingly clear that we need regional and community-level transition strategies to ensure that no one is left behind. Indeed, the UN Paris Climate Agreement itself recognises this. The countries in the Danube Basin, Green Heart of Europe are no exception.

Phasing out fossil fuel-based electricity generation, especially coal, is a prerequisite for fulfilling the European Union's commitment to the Paris Agreement and the leadership role the EU strives to have in global climate policy. Not all regions will automatically benefit from the transition to net-zero emissions. However, with proactive and inclusive management, the transition can be a driver for sustainable economic development and social progress everywhere. Such a major change must be accompanied by a comprehensive Just Transition strategy aiming at minimising hardships for workers and their communities in the associated industries through active political and financial support, as well as shifting local economies towards sustainable economic activities.
 
A Just Transition from Coal in Eastern and Southern Europe Project
The goal of this project is to develop tailor-made transition strategies away from coal and towards sustainable economic activities to economically transform specific regions in Bulgaria (Southwest Bulgaria), Greece (Western Macedonia), and Poland (Silesia). The work is being supported by best practice examples from Germany. A key message is to make the stakeholders from Bulgaria, Greece, Poland, as well as Germany and Brussels recognise "just transition" as a fully legitimate part of climate change policy.
 
WWF's call for a just transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral society by 2050 and a New Deal for Nature and People requires action and engagement from all stakeholders to develop and implement bespoke economic diversification and transition plans. To ensure public acceptance and transparency, the project includes capacity-building workshops in Bulgaria, Greece and Poland to engage local stakeholders, trade unions, journalists and civil society organisations, as well as relevant regional, national, and EU decision-makers. Study trips for relevant stakeholders are organised in each of the four countries to learn about the regional challenges and experiences with transition so far, and to meet local stakeholders. The study trips catalyse cross-fertilisation of ideas amongst the stakeholders from the different regions. Moreover, a range of advocacy activities are being conducted towards national and EU institutions with the objective of raising awareness on just transition among policy makers so as to make it an appropriately funded, integral component of national and European climate policy.
 
Signs of Change
On October 16 in Brussels, a group of 41 mayors from 10 coal regions in 9 European countries launched  a statement supporting a just transition to the post-coal era, including mayors from Germany, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic. Two of the mayors presented this statement to the EU Commission's Deputy Director-General for Energy, Klaus-Dieter Borchardt at the meeting of the EU "Coal Regions in Transition Platform." The Platform aims to help regions overcome their dependence on coal by developing sustainable economic activities.
 
A recent study by WWF-Bulgaria in the southwest coal region in Bulgaria provides 3 scenarios for possible development of the region. The study will become the basis for an active public discussion that will catalyse solutions based on the region's advantages. They should overcome the gradual depopulation and depersonalization of the territory and should lead to the formation of prosperous and attractive areas for the development of sustainable economic activities. Decarbonisation policies and measures may in fact become the driving force for sustainable economic growth and social progress. This can be done with the active participation of the employees and workers who are most directly affected.

The analysis is an attempt to plan the future of coal regions in Bulgaria and to serve as a tool for policy planning and long-term strategic decision-making first in the districts of Pernik, Kyustendil, Blagoevgrad and Sofia (without the city of Sofia); mainly in the municipalities of Bobov Dol (Bobovdol field) and Pernik (Pernik field), as well as the already non-operational Simitli (Pirin field) and Gotse Delchev (Kanina mine)
 
The Energy Situation
The total coal reserves in Southwest Bulgaria are estimated to be small, consisting predominantly of lignite. Struma Province contains 85% of the lignite deposits and reserves in Bulgaria. The area includes the Bobovdol field, Pernik field and Pirin field. There are two operational thermal power plants (TPPs) in the region. Closing down TPP Bobov Dol (Bobov Dol municipality and TPP Republika (Pernik municipality) will leave an annual 903,781 MWh energy gap that will need to be filled by alternative sustainable sources.
 
Economic Alternatives
There are over 150 protected areas of all types in Southwest Bulgaria, including two of the country's three national parks: Rila NationalPark (the largest in Bulgaria) and Pirin National Park (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site). These conditions favour the development of various forms of tourism, organic farming, organic stock-breeding, sustainable forestry and fishing. Moving in this direction would also comply with the desire that economic activities should be compatible with the conservation of valuable species, habitats and nature in general. This fact should be a prerequisite for a sustainable future and be taken into account when deciding on alternative economic investments in the region.
 
Scenarios Outlined in the Study
  • Scenario 1: Maintaining the Status Quo is extremely insufficient to bring about changes in the socio-economic situation of the region, the demographic trends and the investment climate. It could ultimately lead to an unplanned closure of the energy and coal industry in its present form, a situation which does not meet the objectives of a just transition to a clean energy economy. Therefore Scenario 1 is not recommended.
  • Scenario 2: based on the Internal Opportunities and Advantages of the region provides for economic and territorial transformation. This transformation must overcome the extraction and burning of coal, but at the same time should preserve the regional economy. This comes close to the goals of just transition.
  • Scenario 3: A "Creative Upgrade" with the participation of foreign investors is the most favourable for the region. The scenario envisages complete economic and territorial transformation, overcoming the negative demographic trends and establishing a favourable investment climate  – factors that can lead to the achievement of a just transition.
The present analysis is not a panacea; it does not discuss all the possible solutions, nor does it propose all possible measures and actions that could be taken. Their number cannot be exhausted within a single document. Nevertheless, it is a necessary begin the process of transition to a clean energy economy in order to create new growth. Regardless of which route will be chosen, it will be long and will require the efforts not only of those directly employed in the coal mining and coal burning sector, but also of the state, business, trade unions, regions and the non-governmental sector.
 
Meanwhile, while not part of the WWF project, the CEE Bankwatch Network supported local residents in Slovakia to get a Just Transition plan for the Slovak Upper Nitra coal region approved in June, 2019. The local community had been working to prepare their inputs and scenarios for the transformation of the region since 2018. CEE Bankwatch says that while the plan rejects Hornonitrianske bane Prievidza's (HBP) scheme to open a new mine at the Novaky Coal Complex, and local input has resulted in a plan that aims for "developing economic activities in symbiosis with a clean environment," it fails to set a clear date for the phase-out of coal in Slovakia. If the Action Plan had contained clear commitments to put an end to coal, Slovakia could have become a true model of good practice for Central and Eastern Europe and show how other coal regions in neighbouring countries could transition away from coal in a participatory manner.  Without a coal phase-out, however, the plans for carbon neutrality are more difficult to implement. The organisation says that the Slovak Government should muster the courage to set a deadline for coal. This would be the definitive sign that the Action Plan is taken seriously and will be implemented. Even so, it is a true victory for local communities in the Upper Nitra.
 
Next Steps
In order to assist regional and national authorities develop strategies for, and implementing a just transition at the regional level, guidelines in the form of Seven Golden Rules were identified by the partners of the Europe Beyond Coal Network. The full implementation of these rules will ensure effective stakeholder participation in the process of selecting and implementing projects, without which the transition strategies will be much less effective, or could even be counterproductive. Applying these rules will be important to enable a speedy, socially-just regional transformation beyond coal in line with the EU's obligations under the UN Paris Climate Agreement. We call on the European Commission to adopt these guidelines to ensure a just and sustainable transition for all.
 
Just Transition in Eastern and Southern Europe contributes to local development in the target regions by having a positive in all the important aspects of the transition process – social, economic and environmental. The project is funded through the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.

Thirty years after the Velvet Revolution, will Prague finally erect a memorial?

 Cache   

The Czech city has long had uneasy relationship with monuments to its history but, 30 years after the end of the communist regime, that could be about to change

I used to think the saddest place in Prague was a prospect high above the Vltava River. It is a peaceful though somewhat neglected spot, buttressed by granite ramparts covered with graffiti and popular with families out for a stroll, skateboarders, joggers and tourists taking selfies against the backdrop of the city. At its centre is an empty, gently mounded plateau.

The area has no name on current maps of Prague, but it was once known, in popular parlance, as “U Stalina” – Stalin’s place. In 1955, two years after the Soviet dictator’s death, a massive 50-foot high granite monument to him was unveiled on this spot, the largest representation of Stalin in the world. Commissioned in the late 1940s when Czechoslovakia was being turned into a Soviet satellite state, and already under construction as Stalin lay dying, the monstrous memorial remained in place until 1962 when, in the spirit of de-Stalinisation, it was blown to smithereens by the same regime that erected it.

"The BookBrowse Review: Biographies of the Best and Brightest"

 Cache   
A good biography can give you a candid glimpse into someone else's mind and motivations, transport you to another era, perhaps even show you another side to a famous figure you thought you knew all about. In this issue we review recent biographies of three remarkable individuals, each of whom changed the world they were living in. For example, in Unbreakable, Richard Askwith tells the story of Lata Brandisova, a Czechoslovakian woman who pursued a career in horse racing in the 1930s, despite this being anathema for women at the time. Brandisova won the Grand Pardubice Steeplechase race in 1937, robbing German racers of what they believed would be an easy win on the brink of World War II.

Anti-Semitic 'poison' runs deep in Corbyn's Labour Party, Britain's chief rabbi warns

 Cache   

Britain’s chief rabbi said opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was unfit to be prime minister because he had failed to stem anti-Semitism “sanctioned from the top” and now gripping his party.

His comments stirred up campaigning ahead of the Dec. 12 vote where the United Kingdom faces a stark choice between Prime Minister Boris Johnson offering Brexit and Corbyn proposing a radical socialist vision for the world’s fifth largest economy.

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, in an article in The Times, questioned how complicit in prejudice an opposition leader would have to be to be considered unfit for office.

“It is a failure of leadership. A new poison — sanctioned from the top — has taken root in the Labour Party,” wrote Mirvis, of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth.

“Be in no doubt, the very soul of our nation is at stake.”

Such an intervention from a religious leader is unusual.

Anglican leader Justin Welby said it was unprecedented and indicated the fear felt by many Jews.

Ever since Corbyn, a veteran campaigner for Palestinian rights, shocked the establishment by becoming Labour leader in 2015, he has been dogged by criticism from members, lawmakers and Jewish leaders that he has failed to tackle anti-Semitism.

He has repeatedly said he abhors anti-Semitism and supporters accuse foes of trying to make political capital.

However, nine of his lawmakers quit the party in February, citing the leadership’s handling of the accusations among their reasons, and in May Britain’s equality watchdog launched an investigation into possible discrimination by Labour.

Rapper backs Corbyn

Mirvis said Labour leaders’ response as their supporters drove lawmakers, members and staff out of the party for challenging anti-Jewish racism had been “utterly inadequate.”

Corbyn has also been criticized for the party’s delay in fully adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-semitism.

A Labour spokesman said Corbyn was a lifelong campaigner against anti-Semitism while the party was rooting out discrimination with suspensions and education programs.

“A Labour government will guarantee the security of the Jewish community, defend and support the Jewish way of life, and combat rising anti-Semitism in our country and across Europe,” the spokesman said.

Alfred Dubs, who escaped from the Nazis in Czechoslovakia as a child in 1939, said the rabbi had gone a bit far.

“I don’t believe he’s (Corbyn) anti-Semitic even though under his leadership things have happened which should have been dealt with much faster,” Dubs told BBC Radio.

With just over two weeks until the election, a poll by Kantar showed Labour had squeezed the Conservative lead to 11 points from 18 over the last week.

Grime star Stormzy said it was important for voters to register by the end of Tuesday. “I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn,” the rapper added, calling Johnson a sinister man.

That prompted British minister Michael Gove to quip that Stormzy was “a far, far better rapper than he is a political analyst.”

Europe leads the world with its number of liberalized laws on abortion, but many women still face access barriers due to regulatory restrictions or regressive threats
Primary Content

(PRESS RELEASE) --A new comparative overview of European abortion laws, released today by the Center for Reproductive Rights, reveals that more than 95% of women of reproductive age currently live in countries where laws allow abortion either on request or on broad social grounds.

This impressive statistic nevertheless masks the fact that some of these countries maintain restrictive pre-conditions, such as mandatory counselling or enforced waiting periods, that can impede or delay women accessing services. In addition, abortion is still outlawed or extremely restricted in six countries in the region.

The report, European Abortion Laws: A Comparative Overview, outlines that the trend is squarely towards positive and progressive liberalizing reform in the European region, such as the recent legalization of abortion on request in Cyprus, Ireland and Iceland. It also warns, however, that the region remains at considerable risk of attempts to rollback abortion rights, such as current proposals before the Slovakian parliament that would introduce extreme mandatory requirements prior to abortion that are contrary to international human rights principles and law. 

The new report reveals that, currently, across the European region:

  • Thirty-nine countries (ranging right across the continent, from Portugal and Spain in the West to Turkey and the Russian Federation in the East) have legalized abortion on request (i.e where abortion is legal without the need for a medical practitioner or other authority to certify a particular reason for the abortion)
  • Two countries (Finland and the United Kingdom) have legalized abortion on broad social grounds
  • Six countries retain highly restrictive abortion laws – Andorra, Malta and San Marino do not allow abortion in any circumstances; Liechtenstein allows abortion only when a woman’s life or health is at risk, or where the pregnancy resulted from sexual assault; Monaco and Poland allow abortion only when a woman’s life or health is at risk, following a sexual assault, or where a severe foetal anomaly has been detected

Some countries have set time limits on abortion on request at between 18-24 weeks of pregnancy, while others set these limits around the end of the first trimester of pregnancy. All of these countries’ laws allow access later in pregnancy in specific circumstances, such as where a woman’s health or life is at risk, and here the standard practice is not to impose any time limitation at all.

Despite having legalized abortion, some European countries have maintained a range of procedural rules and regulations that can impede and delay women’s access to abortion care.  These include:

  • mandatory waiting periods between the date on which an abortion is first requested and the date on which it may take place;
  • laws compelling women to undergo counselling, which can sometimes be required to be biased or directive;
  • short rigid time limits for accessing abortion that may disproportionately affect certain groups of women; and
  • criminalising women or medical professionals who act outside of the legal framework for abortion provision

Although the general trend in Europe has been towards increasing liberalization and removing barriers to access, in recent years some countries in Europe have attempted to roll back existing legal protections for women’s access to abortion care. Initiatives have ranged from attempts to introduce regressive pre-conditions before abortions can take place, such as mandatory biased counselling, or waiting periods, to attempts to fully ban abortion or remove existing legal grounds for abortion.

“Women in Europe have fought long and hard for legal entitlements to access abortion care,” said Leah Hector, Regional Director for Europe at the Center for Reproductive Rights.

As recent events in Poland and Slovakia demonstrate, rights to access abortion may be arbitrarily threatened by attempts to introduce new barriers or scale back on the legality of abortion care, and we must be ever vigilant.

“Comparative reports like this one help to capture the current status of abortion law and practice across the region, and provide advocates and policy makers with information on where and how their efforts should be focused moving forward. There is much progress still to be made if Europe is to achieve the promise of gender equality.”
