Перипетии придворного этикета

 Cache   

1
Со времён позднего средневековья всё большее внимание стало уделяться манерам в высшем обществе. Придворный этикет распространился с древнего Востока на Византию, а оттуда с помощью крестоносцев перешел и в Западную Европу. Каждый монарх приспосабливал все пышные церемониалы придворного этикета поудобнее к своим потребностям…

С 15 века большое влияние на развитие западноевропейского этикета оказывал чрезвычайно усложнившийся церемониал королевских дворов. Сначала определенное влияние оказывали испанские и бургундские ритуалы, затем с развитием абсолютизма главную роль начала играть Франция.

В это время появляются многочисленные пособия по этикету, который становится настолько сложным, что при дворах появляется специальная должность церемониймейстера, следившего за выполнением всех его тонкостей и строжайшим образом регламентировавшего всю дворцовую жизнь.

Свою любовницу графиню Дюбарри (1746-1793) король Людовик XV (1710-1774) любил угощать кофе, который варил сам.
Каждый раз, получая чашечку божественного напитка, графиня говорила: “Merci, la France!” ( Спасибо, Франция! )

За нарушение придворного этикета полагалось наказание. Порой, доходило до абсурда. Так присниться принцессе, считалось неслыханной дерзостью при марокканском дворе. За это могли высечь кнутом или даже отправить на плаху.

Однажды Франсуа де Вьевиль (1510-1571), будущий маршал Франции, был приглашён на обед к английскому королю Эдуарду VI (1537-1553). В своих мемуарах де Вьевиль с удивлением описывал увиденное:

"На обеде прислуживали рыцари ордена Подвязки. Они вносили блюда и, приблизившись к столу, опускались на колена.
Блюда у них принимал главный гофмейстер и обслуживал короля, тоже стоя на коленах.

Мы, французы, находили весьма странным, что рыцари, происходящие из самых именитых родов Англии, отличные мужи и военачальники, стоят на коленях, ведь у нас даже прислуживающие пажи склоняют колени только в дверях, входя в зал".

Такой диковинный этикет с коленопреклонениями во время обеденной церемонии сохранялся в Англии ещё и во времена Чарльза II (1630-1685).

Герцог Антуан де Грамон граф де Гиш

На одном из таких обедов присутствовал Антуан де Грамон, граф де Гиш (1637-1673), и король решил похвастаться:

"Не правда ли, там, дома, Вы подобного не видели? Французского короля ведь не обслуживают, стоя на коленях?"

У де Грамона оказался острый язык:

"Я полагал, что эти господа стоят на коленях, чтобы испросить прощения за многие плохие блюда, поданные Твоему величеству".

В Англии в XVII—XVIII веках существовала специальная и весьма почётная должность «королевский откупорщик океанских бутылок с письмами». Если кто-то помимо откупорщика случайно вскрывал бутылку, выброшенную на берег, то его казнили…

В России о европейском этикете  узнали при Петре I. Царь лично составил свод правил хорошего поведения, в который входили следующие пункты: "в носу перстом не ковырять, в круг не плевать, ножом зубы не чистить, ногами не болтать…".

Ассамблея при Петре I

Также запрещалось за столом облизывать пальцы, сморкаться в скатерть, плевать в свою тарелку и бросать кости под стол.
"Нельзя быть краше императрицы".

Петр насильно внедрял в народное сознание правила этикета от немцев да голландцев. Только всё одно выходило по-русски. Боярыни в заморских платьях выглядели как бабы на чайнике, а знаменитые петровские ассамблеи больше напоминали не светские рауты, а пьяные застолья.

Император повелел, чтобы на ассамблеи все приезжали со своими домочадцами, включая жён на сносях. Опоздавшим наливалась штрафная рюмка водки внушительных размеров, которую заставляли осушать до дна. Это касалось не только мужчин, но и женщин.

Боярыня Олсуфьева, находясь на последнем месяце беременности, умоляла Петра, чтобы он разрешил ей не пить штрафную. Император был неумолим, и ночью у Олсуфьевой случился выкидыш. Но даже этот горестный факт Пётр I решил использовать, чтобы показать свою прогрессивность: мёртвый младенец был заспиртован в банке и выставлен на всеобщее обозрение в Кунсткамере.

Императрица Елизавета I Петровна

При Елизавете I (1533-1603) обеденный этикет при стал ещё более диковинным. Путешественник из Бранденбурга Пауль Хентцнер (1558-1623) смог увидеть только приготовления к королевскому обеду:

"Вошёл придворный сановник с церемониальным жезлом в руке, за ним другой джентльмен со скатертью на руке. Оба они трижды преклонили колена перед пустым столом. Джентльмен номер два расстелил на столе скатерть, затем они опять трижды преклонили колена и торжественно удалились.

За ними опять вошли два джентльмена, один из них нёс солонку, тарелку и хлеб; второй, серьёзный господин с тростью, шагал впереди в качестве парадного эскорта. Три коленопреклонения перед столом до и после. Затем просеменили две леди, они принесли нож. Преклонение колен и т. д.

Трубные звуки рога, барабанный бой: появляется гвардия, которая расставляет на столе двадцать четыре кушанья на золотых блюдах. Королевы всё ещё не видно, а пока стекаются чередой молодые придворные дамы. С превеликим почтением они забирают блюда и уносят во внутренний покой королевы, затем, что Елизавета изволила обедать в одиночестве.

Там она выбрала себе одно-два кушанья, остальное вынесли, и придворные дамы все и съели".

Императрица Екатерина II

Ревностно следила за придворным этикетом и Екатерина II, которая составила "Эрмитажный этикет", наставляющий гостей, как вести себя во время приема. Например, если гостю захочется рассмотреть какую-нибудь фарфоровую статуэтку, то не следует по забывчивости класть ее в карман.

На церемониалы и поддержание двора Екатерина тратила баснословные деньги. Но при ее правлении русский императорский двор стали называть в Европе блестящим.

Рассказывали, что  нарушив правило этикета фрейлина Лопухина поплатилась… прической. Императрица прямо на балу отрезала ей клок волос. Но фрейлина еще легко отделалась. Часто немилость императрицы полностью исключала человека из светской жизни.

Весьма строгий и временами абсурдный этикет сложился при дворе испанских королей. Из исторических источников известно, что к испанской королеве не мог прикоснуться ни один мужчина, кроме короля.

Филипп II, великий государь и кровавый палач протестантов, выстроил близ Мадрида роскошный и мрачный замок Эскориал, но его потомки предпочитали более скромный Алькасар. Дворцы по восточному обычаю — ведь Испания сотни лет оставалась во власти арабов — делились на мужскую и женскую половины.

Днем в обеих кишели придворные, шуты и карлики, но после захода солнца ни один мужчина, кроме короля, не мог оставаться на женской территории. Честь королевы или принцессы должна была оставаться вне подозрений. Даже прикосновение к руке коронованных дам каралось смертью.

456px-Marie_Louise_Orleans_Spain

Мария Луиза Орлеанская — королева-консорт Испании, жена короля Карла II.

Однажды королева Мария-Луиза (1662-1689), жена Карла II (1661-1700), прогуливалась верхом, лошадь внезапно понесла, королева вывалилась из седла и её нога запуталась в стременах. Королеве грозила верная смерть, но два молодых офицера, презрев этикет, остановили лошадь, подхватили королеву и высвободили её ногу.

Не дожидаясь благодарности, офицеры пустили своих коней в галоп и поспешили покинуть королевский двор. Говорили, что им даже пришлось укрыться за границами Испанского королевства – ведь молодым людям грозила смертная казнь за то, что они посмели прикоснуться к телу королевы.

Кроме короля к королеве могли прикасаться лишь придворные дамы, которые имели на это дозволение, и если королева падала во время прогулки или во время торжественной церемонии, то ей приходилось подниматься самой или дожидаться, пока не прибудут те самые придворные дамы, которым дозволено прикасаться монаршей особе.

Марианна Австрийская — испанская королева, вторая жена Филиппа IV.

Строгие нелепости были характерны именно для испанского двора, что показывает случай с Марией Анной Австрийской (1634-1696), когда она стала невестой Филиппа IV (1605-1665).

Марии Анне пришлось ехать через территорию Франции, где её торжественно встречали в каждом городе. Мэр Лиона преподнёс Марии Анне дюжину шёлковых чулок в качестве дара от местной промышленности, но королевский мажордом грубо оттолкнул подарок, заявив:

"Господин мэр, запомните, что у испанской королевы нет ног!"

При этих словах несчастная упала в обморок, так как решила, что в Мадриде ей, согласно испанскому этикету, ампутируют ноги!

Жизнь испанских принцесс, была подчинена строгому распорядку. Ранний подъем, молитва, завтрак, потом часы учебы. Юные инфанты обучались шитью, танцам и письму, зубрили священную историю и генеалогию царствующей династии. Далее следовал торжественный обед, дневной сон, затем игры или болтовня с фрейлинами (у каждой принцессы был свой штат придворных). Затем снова долгие молитвы и отход ко сну — ровно в десять вечера.

Конечно, у девочек были лучшие игрушки и невиданные лакомства, привезенные из заморских владений Испании. Но, по правде говоря, жили они не особенно весело — строгие дуэньи с детства не позволяли ни смеяться, ни бегать, ни играть со сверстниками. Прибавьте к этому жесткие и неудобные платья с каркасом из китового уса и шлейфом, волочащимся по земле…

Не лучшее положение было и у королей. Рассказывают, что когда однажды Филипп III (1578-1621) грелся у камина, ему стало плохо, и он потерял сознание. Пока придворные бегали за одним из грандов, который имел право прикасаться к королю и двигать его кресло, Филипп III получил серьёзные ожоги.

Даже сексом со своей женой испанские короли могли заниматься только согласно строгим предписаниям придворного этикета.

Филипп IV довел этикет до совершенства. Говорили, что он улыбался не больше трех раз в жизни и требовал того же от своих близких. Французский посланник Берто писал:

«Король действовал и ходил с видом ожившей статуи… Он принимал приближенных, выслушивал и отвечал им с одним и тем же выражением лица, и из всех частей его тела шевелились только губы».

Тот же этикет заставлял испанских монархов оставаться узниками дворца, ведь за его пределами было немыслимо соблюдать сотни правил и условностей.

Queen_Sunandha_of_Siam

Жена короля Сиама Чулалонгкорна (Рама V), королева Сунанда Кумарираттана.

Жена короля Сиама, 19-летняя красавица Сунанда Кумарираттана, каталась на лодке с новорождённой дочкой на руках. По нелепой случайности лодка перевернулась и Сунанда вместе с малышкой оказались в воде. Королева и принцесса утонули на глазах у многотысячной свиты. И никто не протянул руку помощи!

Чудовищно, но только с точки зрения современного человека, который не может постичь, что такое придворный этикет особенно XIX века и особенно если речь идёт об азиатской монархии. Ведь королева погибла не потому, что подданные желали ей смерти.

Наоборот, они благоговели перед Сунандой, не смея прикоснуться к особе королевского рода, поскольку этот запрет был прописан в правилах этикета.

Супруг Сунанды, король Рама V, потеряв двух любимых женщин - жену и дочку, сильно осерчал. Что он сделал со слишком законопослушными придворными, неизвестно. Но известно, что в 1880 году (в год гибели Сунанды) правило относительно «касания» особ королевской крови он отменил.

А китайский правитель по имени Цинь Ши Хуанди, видимо, страдал паранойей, поэтому не хотел, чтобы его придворные знали, в каком из дворцов он находится. И даже если теоретически местонахождение императора было известно, то всё равно ни кто не знал, в какой именно комнате он находится и чем занимается.

2015-07-03_232721

Поэтому высокие сановники и простые слуги, проходя мимо каждой закрытой двери дворца, на всякий случай кланялись, как требовал строгий этикет.

Это продолжалось до тех пор, пока по одному из императорских дворцов не стал распространяться характерный запах. Когда дверь всё же рискнули открыть, то в комнате обнаружили полу- разложившееся тело Цинь Ши Хуанди.

Если уж говорить о чудачествах этикета, то не упомянуть Людовика XIV было бы не прилично. При Короле-Солнце абсурд перерос все границы. Короля, как рой, окружало несметное число придворных. Размах, с которым жил Людовик, не укладывался ни в какие рамки.

Каждая мелочь в расписании жизни французского двора была строго запротоколирована. Никаких изменений быть не могло. Огромное количество придворных окружало короля с того момента, когда утром он открывал сиятельные глазки, и до той минуты, пока его очи не закрывались на время ночного сна.

French_painting_Louis_XIV_With_Plans_for_Versailles_Kings_Full_length_portraits_Fine_art_Visual_arts_Curly_b

Людовик XIV де Бурбон, получивший при рождении имя Луи́-Дьёдонне́, также известный как «король-солнце», также Людовик Великий, — король Франции и Наварры с 14 мая 1643 г.

Порядок утреннего, дневного и вечернего одевания Людовик XIV написал собственноручно. И даже когда ему стукнуло 70 лет, этот порядок оставался прежним. Всё так же домашние тапочки королю подавал первый камергер, а домашний халат - главный камергер...

Только вельмож, что управляли кухней, было 96 человек, а весь персонал при приготовлении трапезы и вовсе насчитывал 400 человек! Столы ломились от изобилия вкусностей, но при этом Король-Солнце продолжал есть мясо и рыбу, приготовленную в вине, руками, так и не научившись пользоваться столовыми приборами.

У многих людей жесткие правила светской жизни вызывали оправданный протест, который проявлялся в форме эпатирующих общество поступков и выходок. Однако светское общество пыталось их представить как шалости и проказы.
И здесь, конечно, впереди планеты всей было именно российское общество, особенно среда творческой интеллигенции.

Для примера можно вспомнить визит Пушкина в дом екатеринославского губернатора, куда он явился «в кисейных, легких, прозрачных панталонах, без всякого исподнего белья».

Слова И. П. Липранди проливают некоторым образом свет на выходку Пушкина: «Он отвык и, как говорил, никогда и не любил аристократических, семейных, этикетных обществ...».

В целом, в старых хрониках и мемуарах придворных можно найти множество свидетельств того, как из-за мелочей, связанных с этикетом, нередко вспыхивали ссоры, осложнявшие политические отно­шения между государствами.

В основном, ссоры возникали из-за того, на что предлагалось сесть (на кресло с подлокотниками, на стул с высокой спинкой или на табурет), или из-за нарушающего этикет движения правой или левой рукой, количества шагов, которые надо было сделать, кланяясь монарху.

Безусловно, узнавая о таких перипетиях этикета и курьезах с людьми, следовавшими или нарушавшими их, мы только улыбаемся и пожимаем плечами.

Сегодня понятие этикета весьма расплывчато. И хотя королевские дворцы по-прежнему существуют и правила в них всё ещё очень сложны, трудно представить, чтобы за их нарушение кого-нибудь казнили. 

Булат Окуджава вспоминал о своём потрясении, когда он увидел в Швеции, как по улице проехала сама королева! Более того, Окуджава понял, что эта женщина дважды посмотрела именно на него!

Окрылённой нежданно подаренной честью, поэт написал шведской королеве благодарственное письмо, на что получил ответ: «Да, я помню Вас. Я действительно дважды на Вас посмотрела, потому что из всех  присутствующих только Вы не сняли шляпу»….

'Atlantics' Is A Haunting Refugee Story — Of The Women Left Behind In Senegal

'In the new movie Atlantics, directed by Mati Diop, a group of young men set off on a boat for Spain from the coast of Senegal. They're fed up with their lives, and have made the fateful — and fatal — decision to sail to Europe. But Atlantics, which won the Grand Prix at this year's Cannes Film Festival is not a movie about them. It's the story of the women they've left behind. And it's a ghost story.' -- All Things Considered

Holding a major international summit on climate change against a backdrop of civil discontent like the kind that has rocked Chile might have given the world the impression that issues like clean energy can be addressed without also confronting problems of social justice. So last month, in the midst of massive protests on cost-of-living burdens and other inequalities, Chile withdrew as the host nation of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25). Instead, COP25 will convene next week in Madrid, Spain. Despite this decision, Chile's commitment to maintain its presidency of COP25 through next year hopefully signals a turning point in climate action—one that further steers Chile and the rest of the global community to recognize connections between social and climate crises, and to support climate policies that do not leave anyone behind.


          

Wine tasting at a Vineyard in Spain with Kids – Adernats Cellar

 Cache   

How do you make wine tasting at a Vineyard in Spain fun for the kids? Well you combine it with a trip in a horse drawn carriage! We enjoyed a lovely morning at Adernats Cellar whilst we were in Catalonia over October Half Term. Believe me I have attempted to visit vineyards before with the kids with varying success and at varying ages. I actually think I’m fairly scarred by a trip in France when they were toddlers and we had 4 children with us under 3 who were just trying to hide from the rain and wanted to play with the bottles, but I digress. The tour around the Vineyard in a real horse drawn carriage was a lovely way to spend a morning and for us all to learn a little more about wine production and how they do it. We learnt about how they take care of the grapes and how processes can be different and how they use different types of methods to keep the bugs away. The girls also learnt to drive the horse and cart and received a really cute certificate at the end to say they had now become licensed to drive a […]

You May Be Surprised to Know the First Thanksgiving Was Actually in 1565 in Florida

 Cache   

As we celebrate Thanksgiving today, it's important to understand the truth about its origins. Many believe the first American Thanksgiving was the harvest festival the Pilgrims hosted in October 1621 at the Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts. But actually, the first Thanksgiving was 66 years earlier in St. Augustine, Florida.

When the Spanish landed in August of 1565, they named their city St. Augustine because it was on the feast day of St. Augustine. Accounts say that the Spanish came off their ships with trumpets blaring. Priests who had joined the voyage celebrated the first mass in the New World. They also took some of their provisions off the ship and held a feast—a feast of Thanksgiving.

A large cross now marks the spot where the Spanish thanked God for their safe passage to the New World. St. Augustine locals like to say it's the largest cross in North America.

Members of the Timucua tribe were nearby when the Spanish landed, so they joined the newcomers for their Thanksgiving feast. Their food, unfortunately, was probably not as delicious as the foods we eat for Thanksgiving today. Instead of freshly cooked Turkey and mashed potatoes, the Thanksgiving feast of 1565 likely consisted of hard biscuits, some wild game, garbanzo stew and red wine—leftover provisions from the long voyage from Spain.

Fast-forward 60 years and you have the well-known Thanksgiving of 1621 in Plymouth. The Pilgrims—who called themselves separatists and came to the New World seeking religious freedom—befriended the Native Americans who lived nearby. The Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to farm, and because the crop was so plentiful that year, the two groups joined for a feast of celebration and gratitude to God.

The Thanksgiving story in St. Augustine is interesting to me because I live in Florida. But the Thanksgiving in Plymouth is special to me because I've found out that I'm actually a descendant of William Brewster. I found this out through my cousin Sharon Holmgren, who is as interested in genealogy as I am. My mother, Amy Strang, is a descendant of Brewster's son Jonathan.

If you don't already know, Brewster was the elder who was in charge of the Plymouth colony. He came over to the New World with his family, and sadly, a couple of his children died. He went on to live to be 78 years old, which was a long time in his day. Brewster acted as ruling elder from 1609 to his death in 1644, and as ruling elder, he was also head of their government.

But why is this important? I believe it's good to have a fresh perspective on Thanksgiving as we celebrate today. It's good to research these historical events for ourselves since even textbooks aren't always correct.

Yet no matter what the history is, the most important thing is that we as Spirit-filled believers take the opportunity today to offer God a sincere attitude of gratitude. I hope as you gather with family and friends to have a nice meal and relax away from work that you remember what this holiday is all about.

Share this article with a friend today so they, too, can have a fresh perspective and appreciation for Thanksgiving. You can also listen to my podcast about this topic, where I go more in depth about the historical origins of this Christian holiday.

May God bless you and your family as you celebrate!

Los perfumes de Lush ya son una realidad, convirtiendo sus aromas más famosos en el mejor regalo de Navidad

Si por algo es reconocido Lush es por sus aromas. Cuando pasas por delante de una de sus tiendas el golpe de olores a jabón, productos naturales y mezclas aromáticas casi se pueden saborear. Y, de hecho, es el mejor marketing a la hora de entrar en sus establecimientos. Un gancho que la firma británica ha querido aprovechar, dando un nuevo paso en su oferta de productos y lanzando una colección de perfumes que prometen ganarse muchos corazones.

Aunque su fuerte es el cuidado corporal, hace ya muchos meses que Lush se adentró en el mundo del maquillaje y conquistó un nuevo territorio beauty. Ahora mira hacia el mundo de los perfumes, uno de los favoritos de sus clientes. El resultado son algunos de los olores favoritos de la compañía, como Dirty, Karma o Vanillary, convertidos en perfumes que durarán muchas más horas.

A ello se suman las 29 fragancias exclusivas que los más suertudos y viajeros pueden encontrar en la tienda boutique de Florencia, The Perfume Library. Allí hay clásicos de Lush como Dear John u Orange Blossom. Si nos metemos en su tienda online veremos que la oferta es infinita, de forma que cada tienda pueda ir rotando la selección en función de los favoritos y best-sellers en cada ciudad.

Estos perfumes siguen la filosofía eco de la firma. Están realizados con aceites esenciales producidos a través de la regeneración, en entornos que este nuevo comercio ayuda a restaurar y crecer. Por supuesto, todos ellos son cruelty-free. ¿No sabes con cuál de todos quedarte? En su página web hay una guía exhaustiva con las propiedades y efectos de cada ingrediente, para que escojas el más relajante, romántico, equilibrante o aquel que mejora el humor.

"El olfato es uno de los sentidos más poderosos. Siempre que percibes una fragancia o te llegan las notas de olor de algún producto hay una respuesta emocional inmediata. Un perfume puede influir en el humor, en las emociones y en los niveles de energía. Y, ahora que los niveles de estrés y ansiedad son más altos que nunca, muchas personas están buscando refugio en los aceites esenciales y otros productos que tienen un gran impacto en el bienestar emocional." -Emma Dick, perfumista de productos en Lush.

Finally, in 1640, the Portuguese took advantage of Philip IV's preoccupation with a rebellion in Catalonia and revolted. The Portuguese dethroned him and reclaimed independence for Portugal. Undeterred, Philip fought for decades to regain control of Portugal. When did Spain finally recognize Portugal's independence? Discuss

Esplendor Geometrico - Cinetica (Limited Edition) (LP)

 Cache   
Limited and numbered edition of 600 copies! Esplendor Geométrico, the influential "industrial" pioneers of the pulsating, hypnotic and mechanical rhythms, returns with a new album “CINETICA”, after their previous "Fluida Mekaniko" (2016). Based now in Shanghai and Rome, they have not stopped their live performances all over the world in the last two years (Germany, Spain, Russia, UK, France, Italy, and recently Chile) with great success. The LP includes 8 tracks [10 on the CD version], recorded between 2018 & 2019. CINETICA gives a twist to the line that the group has followed in their last albums, highlighted by a more elaborate sound. A sound less raw, but without losing the essence of E.G.: hypnotic rhythms and innovative industrial music, danceable and tribal sometimes. Certain songs like “Acoplamiento internacional” and “Modulaciones”, with eastern and African voices, remember the classic LP Mekano Turbo (1988) that is considered as one of the best albums of E.G. In CINETICA there are filtered and natural voices, broken ,mechanical and industrial rhythms, synthesizers layers, percussion, noise, distortion, mongolian chants… ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2020 and prepares special editions for that year! They have developed a unique style since 1980 that influenced many “industrial” musicians around the world, including the new trends of industrial techno.

Justo Bagüeste & Suso Saiz - Inducing the Pleasure Dreams v2(Limited Edition) (LP)

 Cache   
Limited edition of strictly 500! SUSO SÁIZ is the forefront of Spain’s experimental / electronic music since the late 1970s and the most representative figure of Spain’s now cult ambient scene. JUSTO BAGÜESTE, one of the most important Spanish electronic musicians since the mid-90s. These two old friends join forces on this exceptional album. The sublime electronic sounds generated by Suso Saiz and his guitar are combined with Bagüeste's psychedelic atmospheres (playing Sax, Mini Moog, Theremin...). A masterpiece of modern cosmic and psychedelic ambient! INDUCING THE PLEASURE DREAMS In 1995 Justo Bagüeste released a record called I.P.D. (his first album released on Geometrik. The album claimed to induce the listener a pleasant dream, heading for the final sprint towards that collective promise beyond the end of the millenium. I.P.D. was some sort of Goldberg Variations for the turn of the century, played on mini moogs, short-wave radios and analog synths. In 2016, Bagüeste and Saiz (producer of the 1995 album) performed at Periferias Festival in Huesca. They were to play a reinterpretation of the recording they had made twenty years before. After them played Hans Joachim Roedelius, outstanding member of a generation of German musicians in the 70’s who used electronic as a means to overcome an ominous past. That evening was entitled Glided Harmonies. However, Bagüeste and Saiz didn’t appear nostalgic nor revisionist: just a certain atmosphere and a few innermost samples linked the concert to the 1995 recording. Firmly stuck in that moment, they offered a session of sonic haze based on dialogue and improvisation. The 40 minutes of music we are now examinating stem from that haze. Like a vitalistic statement, a heartbeat and a human voice open the first track Nóstos. We are inmediately plunged into a boundless sea of textures and synthetic serpentines entitled Margen de Indefinición (Margin of Vagueness). Undoubtely this is a dream in motion: maybe we are in a cryogenic cabin, inside a spaceship, travelling bound to the year 2000 again. In the meantime, some rhythmic turbulences show up, they make us dream of a Despertar (Awakening) between faraway saxophones, glided guitars, reminiscences of Popol Vuh and Tangerine Dream. The final stretch starts in tension, mired in an inner conflict Cerca de Algún Lugar (Close to some- where). After a shamanic-like voice, the session leads us to a backwater of spacious ambient music with stitches of sax and guitar, describing a trascendental Implosión (Implosion) ended with unrepentant heartbeats again. This re-reading of I.P.D. is like an agile pirouette against the inertia of time. It reminds us of how intimately electronic music was related to spirituality since the beginning, and how that bond seems to have diluted now that we live in the 21st century, in the factual setting of so many utopian fantasies from the past. Bagüeste and Saiz evoke the enthusiasm of the future pasts. They recall that promise of plenitude through technology that never was. At the same time, they update that promise before our ears, naturally and fully aware. Javier Aquilué

Análisis de Civilization VI: el 4x por excelencia también es una auténtica gozada con un mando en las manos

Siempre he visto en la saga Civilization el juego de mesa virtual perfecto. Los escenarios hexagonales ayudan, pero el hecho de crear tus propias partidas y disfrutarlas dependiendo de a qué profundidad quieres apuntar en cada momento lo convierten en el pasatiempo perfecto.

Ahora, no por primera vez pero sí con la opción más fiel al original, la franquicia 4x por excelencia llega a consolas con Civilization VI y un cambio en el esquema de control excelente. Con ello, el juego de mesa virtual por excelencia abandona la mesa del ordenador para asaltar la mesita del café.

Las claves de Civilization VI

Para aquellos que aún no le han dado una oportunidad a la saga, estamos ante un juego de estrategia que invita a seguir la máxima del género creando ciudades, explorando nuestro alrededor para buscar nuevas zonas en las que asentarnos, aprovechando los recursos que nos rodean y, ya sea por la vía diplomática o militar, imponiéndonos a nuestros rivales del mapa.

Civ01

La gran particularidad de la saga, más acentuada aún en esta sexta entrega que aterrizó en PC a finales de 2016, es que todas esas acciones tienen un extra de profundidad que lo convierten en un juego mucho más complejo de lo que podría parecer a simple vista. Nada que ver con ese aspecto desenfadado y cartoon de escenarios y personajes.

Crear y mantener una ciudad, por ejemplo, implica mantener un curso político y religioso que mantenga contento al pueblo y nos permita aprovechar los beneficios pasivos de cada decisión. Además su creación se realiza en base a distritos que potencian cada una de las ramas necesarias para la evolución de tu pueblo, desde la ciencia y la cultura hasta la fe o el entretenimiento.

Con esa misma máxima el explorar nuevas zonas para asentarnos requiere tener un control del territorio (especialmente con la expansión Gathering Storm para evitar desastres naturales que se puedan producir, por ejemplo el curso creciente de un río), los recursos a explotar no se limitan siempre al clásico combo de madera, piedra y comida, sino que también se vale de objetos de lujo que nos permitirán comerciar y la política respecto a nuestros rivales puede dar un vuelco al menor despiste.

Eso sí, afortunadamente para aquellos que vengan de los primeros meses de Civilization VI, todos los errores en lo que a IA volviéndose loca se refiere han sido más que solventados. Ahora sólo toca disfrutar del juego, ya sea creando nuestra propia partida, eligiendo la opción aleatoria o superando alguno de los escenarios que nos plantea el juego, desde asentamientos vikingos hasta conflictos en plena Gran Guerra.

El salto de PC a consolas

Con una base tan sólida como la del original, aquí los únicos cambios entre versiones se limitan al salto más lógico y, por ende, también el más complejo. Cambiar la agilidad de un teclado y ratón por la limitación de un mando no es tarea fácil, pero kudos para Firaxis Games por el espectacular trabajo que han realizado en la adaptación.

Civ02

Con los botones superiores (LB+RB o L1+R1) para desplegar menús de información lateral, el resto de botones y controles quedan relegados a gestionar cada una de las acciones. Es, evidentemente, un sistema más lento que el de PC, pero las acciones básicas siempre están al alcance de un botón y la sensación que se mantiene durante el transcurso de toda una partida siempre es la misma: comodidad.

Además el juego hace un gran trabajo con un tutorial que asienta las bases del control y, si así lo deseas, tu primera partida puede partir de distintos niveles de información en base a si no has jugado nunca a un Civilization, si no has probado la sexta entrega o, por supuesto, si tienes todo más que controlado y no quieres ir cogido de la mano.

Un grandísimo trabajo en adaptación que, lamentablemente, queda empañado por una decisión comercial poco lógica para un juego con tres años a sus espaldas. El hecho de tener que adquirir las expansiones por separado resulta mucho menos atractivo que si pudieses disponer de ellas con el juego base y, aunque con el juego principal tienes un pozo de horas casi inagotable por delante, en este tipo de propuestas el “más” siempre suele ir acompañado de un “mejor”.

Civ03

La falta de novedades realmente destacables impedirá que los fans de la franquicia que ya han pasado por la sexta entrega vean aquí una oportunidad para volver a ella, pero se entiende que la estrategia detrás de este movimiento está más enfocada a perseguir nuevos fieles que a explotar los que ya posee.

La opinión de VidaExtra

Con un trabajo de adaptación fantástico, olvidarse del ratón en pos de la comodidad del sofá es una idea muy sugerente. Una en la que sólo el no disponer de una gran pantalla para leer de forma cómoda, o la falta de novedades e integración de las expansiones, emborronan un poco la experiencia.

Pese a ello la llegada de Civilization VI es casi todo lo que podría pedírsele a un movimiento así. Un juego que ya demostró su potencial hace tres años de forma indudable y que ahora lo traslada al control con mando sin ningún tipo de asperezas. Una opción brutalmente adictiva que muy probablemente se convierta en tu nuevo pozo sin fondo.

Nacho Vigalondo's El vecino

 Cache   
One of our favorite directors is back with a Netflix superhero show. Nacho Vigalondo (Colossal, Timecrimes) is directing El vecino, where a loser gets super powers. It's coming to Netflix in Spain, but that usually means we get it here in the states too.

Not sure how to feel as we don't have subtitles, but it's always fun to see Nacho take on something sci-fi or fantasy and just making it about relationships. Though last year's Pooka! was one of his worst works, let's hope this makes him have a come back.

Here's the synopsis and trailer

"Javier is going through a bad patch: he can hardly make it to the end of the month, his business of T-shirts with de-motivational slogans is not quite getting the attention, and his relationship with Lola is shacking. The least thing he needed was for an alien to fall on him and transfer his powers to him before dying."

Story 352048696

This story was originally published by Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists other Jones and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

When I pull into a parking lot in my Toyota 4Runner, I hope I won’t see any of my friends who are environmental activists. I hope I’ll fit into the eco-conscious (read: small) parking spaces at some of the places I shop. I feel like a skinny-car person in a fat-truck body.

It turns out that vehicles like mine — known as sport utility vehicles, or SUVs — are even worse for the climate than I had imagined. And I imagined they were pretty bad.

A massive carbon footprint

According to a summary analysis of a report by the International Energy Agency that was released on November 13, SUVs are the second-biggest cause of the rise in global carbon dioxide emissions during the past decade. Only the power sector is a bigger contributor.

The analysis, which surprised even its own authors, found a dramatic shift toward SUVs. In 2010, 1 in 5 vehicles sold was an SUV; today it’s 2 in 5. “As a result, there are now over 200 million SUVs around the world, up from about 35 million in 2010,” the agency reports.

The preference for heavier SUVs is offsetting fuel-efficiency improvements in smaller cars and carbon savings from the growing popularity of electric cars. “If SUV drivers were a nation, they would rank seventh in the world for carbon emissions,” reported the Guardian.

I’m part of that imaginary nation. I don’t have kids. I don’t fly often. But I have a big honkin’ SUV that is killing the planet. For those of us who are worried about our carbon footprints, driving an SUV is like wearing a pair of size-18 steel-toe boots.

Status symbols on wheels

What’s the attraction of SUVs? Consumers who buy them hand manufacturers a higher profit margin than for smaller vehicles. The weight and boxy shape of SUVs makes them less fuel-efficient, so they cost more to operate and are less nimble than passenger cars. Some people feel safer in a vehicle where they sit high above the road, but the raised center of gravity makes SUVs more prone to rollovers than cars, said Consumer Reports. Some people want an SUV because they believe that an all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive option will make them safer in bad weather. In reality, many drivers do not need this expensive and fuel-economy-lowering feature, and would be better off with front-wheel-drive and good tires.

Still, those disadvantages didn’t stop me and my husband from buying a full-size SUV that weighs 4,675 pounds and averages only about 19 miles per gallon. We claim we “need” an SUV to get around in the rural, mountainous area where we live, but somehow we managed to survive here for a decade without one.

People often buy vehicles for reasons that have very little to do with functionality. For many people, an SUV is a status symbol. And that is also true — perhaps even more so — for people who drive hybrid or all-electric passenger cars. A 2007 survey of Toyota Prius buyers found that more than half said they purchased a Prius because “it makes a statement about me.” Some of them are now incensed that Toyota is siding with the Trump administration against California’s efforts to improve fuel economy.

I have the opposite problem. I appreciate the utility of my sport utility vehicle, but I’m embarrassed to be seen in it. Call it “SUVskam,” Swedish for SUV shame. I’m not so ashamed (or wealthy) that I will drive to the nearest junkyard and have it crushed for its scrap metal. But I am doing everything I can to reduce the carbon footprint of my SUV.

What would Greta drive?

SUVskam isn’t a thing yet, but flight shame (or “flygskam” in Swedish) is, thanks in part to the efforts of Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg to raise public awareness of the carbon emissions associated with air travel. In Europe, many flight-shamed people are switching from planes to trains. Thunberg went a step further, avoiding flygskam by taking a sailboat instead of an airliner when she traveled to the United States — and again when she left for Spain last week. Flight shame has reduced air travel enough to catch the attention of the International Air Transport Association, which is launching a campaign to tout its environmental efforts.

Calculating the carbon emissions of air travel is not as simple as “planes bad, trains good,” though. It’s complicated. It depends, for example, on how far you’re traveling and how many people are traveling with you. The same is true for SUVs. A 16-mpg Chevrolet Suburban carrying six carpoolers is burning less fuel per person than a 52-mpg Toyota Prius with no passengers.

Even if you drive an SUV, there are plenty of ways to reduce your carbon footprint. For starters, not all SUVs are created equal. My 4Runner is a gas guzzler, for sure, but it gets much better mileage than a Mercedes G550 or Jeep Grand Cherokee or Nissan Armada. Hybrid SUVs, which get even better mileage, are available for some models — but cost an average of nearly $4,000 more than their gasoline-only counterparts. Mainstream manufacturers are beginning to introduce all-electric luxury models to compete with the Tesla Model X, which costs more than twice as much as an SUV like mine. GM might even bring back the notorious Hummer as a zero-emissions SUV.

While a plug-in SUV is certainly better for the climate than a gasoline-powered model, automakers aren’t introducing these vehicles because they’re committed to climate action. They’re simply trying to capitalize on the popularity of SUVs, and to make people like me feel okay about choosing an SUV over a smaller electric vehicle that would be better for the climate.

Of course, shame isn’t a solution to anything. Those of us who already own SUVs must try to minimize our carbon footprints by reducing the miles we drive in these beasts — for example, by combining errands and walking or biking or taking public transportation when that’s an option. We can also do our best to maximize fuel efficiency — for example, by removing roof boxes and other items that add weight when not in use, taking it easy on the pedals, and optimizing fuel economy by keeping tires properly inflated.

Finally, SUV drivers can support policies such as higher gasoline taxes and higher fees for licensing heavier vehicles, even if doing so makes it more expensive to drive an SUV. After all, if you can afford to buy a vehicle that costs $30,000 or more, there’s no good reason why you can’t pay a little more than the owners of smaller vehicles toward public transportation and road maintenance. I voted against Initiative 976 in my home state of Washington, but the majority of voters just approved a flat $30 licensing fee for all vehicles — replacing a fee structure in which heavier, more damaging vehicles paid more.

Shame on the White House

Of course, individual actions are no substitute for corporate and government leadership. Whether I drive an SUV or a Prius will make very little difference for the climate. But if Akio Toyoda (the president of Toyota) and Donald Trump (who rides in an armored Cadillac that weighs more than 15,000 pounds) continue to support a rollback of auto-emissions standards, their choices will dramatically increase global warming and air pollution.

As leading climate scientist Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University recently observed, climate deniers are attempting to deflect attention away from necessary systemic changes by encouraging well-meaning people to point fingers at one another instead of at the fossil fuel industry. Still, peer pressure can help move people toward healthy habits, as the popularity of bicycling has done in places like Copenhagen — where people of all ages ride bikes to work and school in any weather.

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions to climate change. Only by examining our own choices, and demanding that businesses and governments adopt emissions-reducing policies and regulations, can we make the progress that will be required if we are to leave future generations with a stable climate. On November 5, 11,000 scientists published a warning that the planet is facing a “climate emergency” that is “closely linked to excessive consumption” and will result in “untold suffering” if society does not undergo major transformations.

“Excessive consumption” is an apt description for the glut of SUV sales worldwide. SUV purchasing has been called an “arms race,” in which people are buying bigger vehicles mostly for one reason: Everyone else is.

That’s a shame.

Survey the relationship between obesity and ambient temperature

 Cache   
Introduction: Ambient temperature is considered as a factor affecting on the body's metabolism, So that increase or decrease ambient temperature to the range thermoneutral zone (TNZ) (This temperature is 20.3°C to 23°C for covered people) lead to body metabolic changes, and maybe effective on the increase or reduce the prevalence of obesity. Our aim of this study was to review the relationship between ambient temperature and obesity in different areas of the ambient temperature. Methods: We conducted a complete search up to July 2019 in PubMed, and SCOPUS through a search strategy that included three terms to describe the exposure, and four-term for the outcome. The quality was assessed by the Newcastle–Ottawa Quality Assessment. Among 461 studies selected, Finally 4 cross–section were included in our systematic review. The quality of four studies was 9 on a 9-point scale. The four cross-section studies were reported correlation between the prevalence of obesity and ambient temperatures in different regions of four countries Spain, Korea, England, and the US. Results: There was an association between ambient temperature and obesity in different areas of the ambient temperature. Thus, by increasing the ambient temperature to the TNZ (This temperature is 20.3°C to 23°C for covered people) range the prevalence of obesity increases and with increasing temperature above the TNZ range the prevalence of obesity decreases.  Conclusion: Findings from available data suggested, the ambient temperature may affect the prevalence of obesity, but to determine the relationship between ambient temperature and the prevalence of obesity, further studies are needed in different countries in a wider temperature range.
          

डेविस कप मुकाबले में भारत ने पाकिस्तान को दी 4-0 से मात

 Cache   

नूर सुल्तान। अनुभवी टेनिस स्टार लिएंडर पेस ने अपना डेविस कप रिकार्ड बेहतर करते हुए जीवन नेदुंचेझियान के साथ अपना 44वां युगल मैच जीता जबकि भारत ने पाकिस्तान को 4.0 से हराकर 2020 क्वालीफायर में जगह बना ली। पाकिस्तान के मोहम्मद शोएब और हुफैजा अब्दुल रहमान की जोड़ी पेस और जीवन के आगे टिक नहीं सकी। उन्होंने सिर्फ 53 मिनट में 6.1, 6.3 से जीत दर्ज की। पिछले साल अपना 43वां युगल मैच जीतकर डेविस कप के इतिहास में सफलतम खिलाड़ी बने पेस ने इटली के निकोला पी को पछाड़ा था। पेस ने 56वें मुकाबले में 43वीं जीत दर्ज की थी जबकि निकोला ने 66 में से 42 मैच जीते। 

पेस ने कहा कि यह मेरी 44वीं जीत है लेकिन पहली जीत की तरह लगती है। मेरी सभी जीत विशेष हैं। रिकार्ड में भारत को जगह दिलाना मेरे लिए विशेष है और इसे लेकर मेरे अंदर जुनून है। जीवन अपना पहला मैच खेल रहा था और सीनियर साथी होने के कारण मैंने यह दबाव अपने कंधों पर लिया। पेस ने जीवन की तारीफ करते हुए कहा कि जीवन देश के लिए खेलने में फख्र महसूस करता है। ये लड़के मुझे युवा, तरोताजा और उत्साहित बनाये रखते हैं। मैं उनके साथ सर्वश्रेष्ठ प्रदर्शन कर पाता हूं। पेस का 44 जीत का रिकार्ड जल्दी टूट पाना संभव नहीं क्योंकि उनके अलावा कोई मौजूदा युगल खिलाड़ी शीर्ष 10 में नहीं है। बेलारूस के मैक्स मिरनी तीसरे नंबर पर हैं जिनके नाम 36 जीत दर्ज है लेकिन वह 2018 से टूर पर नहीं खेल रहे हैं।

पेस युगल मुकाबले में जीत के मामले में भले ही शीर्ष पर हों लेकिन यह दिग्गज भारतीय कुल जीत के मामले में पांचवें स्थान पर हैं। उन्होंने 92 मैचों में जीत दर्ज की है जबकि 35 में उन्हें हार का सामना करना पड़ा। इस भारतीय खिलाड़ी के नाम पर अब कुल 92 जीत दर्ज हैं जिसमें एकल की 48 जीत भी शामिल हैं। एक और जीत के साथ पेस स्पेन के मैनुएल सेंटाना को पीछे छोड़ देंगे जिनका जीत-हार का रिकार्ड 92-28 है। उलट एकल में सुमित नागल ने युसूफ खलील को 6.1, 6.0 से मात दी। दोनों टीमों ने बेमानी हो चुका पांचवां मुकाबला नहीं खेलने का फैसला किया । पहले तीन मैच जीतने पर भी टीम के लिये चौथा मैच खेलना जरूरी था लेकिन नियम पांचवां मैच छोड़ने की इजाजत देते हैं।

नागल ने जीत दर्ज करने के बाद कहा कि यह आसान जीत थी, मैं समझ सकता हूं कि वे युवा खिलाड़ी हैं, उन्हें अनुभव की जरूरत है। आज मेरा साल का अंतिम मैच था और मैं शिकायत नहीं करूंगा। यह साल मेरे लिए शानदार रहा। भारत ने फरवरी 2014 के बाद पहली बार किसी मुकाबले में सारे मैच जीते हैं। उस समय इंदौर में भारत ने चीनी ताइपै को 5 . 0 से हराया था। भारत के गैर खिलाड़ी कप्तान रोहित राजपाल ने जीत को देश के सैन्य बलों को समर्पित किया। महेश भूपति के स्थान पर कप्तान बनाए गए राजपाल ने कहा, ‘‘हमने आपस में इस बारे में बात की और हमारा मानना है कि हम इस जीत को सैन्य बलों को समर्पित करना चाहते हैं, विशेषकर उन परिवारों को जिन्होंने हमारे परिवारों की रक्षा करते हुए सीमा पर अपने परिवार के सदस्यों को गंवाया है। इसलिए हम यह जीत भारतीय सेना को समर्पित करते हैं।

Determination of the study period necessary for calculating the equilibrium beach profile and the depth of closure

 Cache   
Título: Determination of the study period necessary for calculating the equilibrium beach profile and the depth of closure Autor/es: López Úbeda, Isabel; Pagán, José Ignacio; Navarro González, Francisco José; Müller, Gabriela V.; Aragonés, Luis Resumen: The morphology and hydrodynamic conditions to which a beach is exposed are important for solving many of the problems faced by coastal management (protection and/or regeneration of the coasts). Monitoring and modelling of coastal elements such as depth of closure or equilibrium beach profile has been extensively studied, although on very different time scales ranging from days to decades. However, none of these studies establishes a period of time to adequately characterize these elements, a very important data for the coastal manager. Thus, this article analyses the depth of closure, parameter A of the potential function of the equilibrium beach profile, and the maritime climate in seven profiles located to the north and south of the port of Valencia (Spain) covering a period of 20 years, with the aim of determining the optimum study period for obtaining the described elements. It is important to highlight the complexity of the study area, which includes dynamic sand bars, longitudinal and transverse transport of sediments, as well as actions to expand the Port and nourish beaches during the analysed period. The results obtained show an evident trend towards an asymptote after 5 years for the depth of closure, parameter A and wave height with probability 0.137% and its associated period. Therefore, it is concluded that for the determination of the depth of closure and the equilibrium beach profile, the data collection time must be at least five years to achieve the reliability of the results and actions on the coast. The designers of coastal actions to obtain an improvement in the coastal management can apply these findings worldwide.

How did November become the Mizrahi Heritage Month? And what’s Mizrahi anyhow?

 Cache   

A Yemenite family walks through the desert to a reception camp 

 

Recently, a growing number of Jewish American organizations began marking November as the "Sephardic/Mizrahi Heritage Month." In the American context, awareness months come to illuminate histories of marginalized communities whose stories are overshadowed and underrepresented in the official curricula and memory. The Mizrahi heritage month, by contrast, is not a local, grassroots initiative that emerged in response to experiences of discrimination or marginalization. Instead, it is a transatlantic importation of recent attempts by the Israeli government to commemorate the forced expulsion of Jews from the Arab and Muslim world in the wake of the establishment of Israel. Nor is November a month that has any particular significance in the histories or rituals of any of the dozen Jewish minority communities that resided in Northern Africa and the Middle East. Instead, the specific date, November 30th, was chosen by the Israeli lawmaker as a symbolic birth date of the mass exodus of Jews from Arab speaking lands triggered by the UN Partition Resolution of November 29th, 1947.

 

Erroneously, in the North American Jewish world, the terms “Sephardi” and “Mizrahi” are often treated as synonymous. Yet, unlike the term “Sephardi,” which originates in the expulsion of Jews from the Iberian Peninsula in 1492 (Sepharad is the Hebrew term for Spain), Mizrahi is a category which is not only far more recent in historical terms but is also politically charged and rooted in a specific Israeli context. Mizrahi, literarily meaning “eastern” or “Oriental” in Hebrew, was an adjective-turned-term that was coined in pre-statehood Palestine and later used in Israel to denote any non-Ashkenazi Jew. In early statehood Israel, a considerable degree of patronizing attitude and discrimination towards “Oriental Jews” who were regarded as less civilized, ill-educated, lacking sufficient ideological commitment resulted in discrimination. During the 1950s, Mizrahi Jews were sent to frontier settlements and to newly established "development towns" that were established in the country's peripheral regions. Soon enough, these towns transformed into conspicuous pockets of deprivation and poverty, and their Mizrahi residents became a discernible low-status blue-collar class, deprived of the same employment and education opportunities as their Ashkenazi peers. In that process, the adjective "Mizrahi” became a highly contested and politically charged term, and not a neutral sociological category.  

 

Years of a persistent civic struggle for equal rights by Mizrahi activists and scholars in Israel, accompanied by demands for recognition of their full history, did not solve all social problems and inequality nor erase past scars. During the 1970s, the Likud Party’s leadership reappropriated the Mizrahi struggle to claim a stake at the Israeli national story. Other political parties, such as Shas, the non-Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox party that was established during the mid-1980s, also tried to harness the Mizrahi struggle with a considerable level of success. A 2014 legislation that created a new day of commemoration for Mizrahi Jews is yet another attempt to divert the Mizrahi call for equality in Israel to a political cause. In particular, it uses the politics of memory to create a false equation between "Jewish refugees from the Arab World" and the Palestinian refugees. Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa region had undergone different experiences, not just between different countries, but even between various communities in the same country. 1948 was undoubtedly a turning point for a great number of them, and the Israel-Palestine conflict loomed over much of it. But casting these rich histories into one single-dimensional narrative is, in fact, a cynical strategy employed by the Israeli Right to avoid the need to address Palestinian claim for compensation on behalf of the Palestinian refugees. 

 

Right-leaning Jewish organizations in the US, such as the San Francisco based JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East), were quick to adopt the Israeli ready-made mold of “Mizrahi commemoration” and to blend it with the American practice of “awareness months.” Their website describes them as a non-profit “committed to achieving universal recognition to the heritage and history of the 850,000 indigenous Jewish refugees Arab from countries.” Similar ideas are expressed by Hen Mazzig, a charismatic yet controversial "Hasbarah" (pro-Israeli advocacy) speaker who tours North American campuses, to speak to students about his family's immigration from Tunisia and Morocco, his experiences as a gay officer in the IDF, and ways of combating anti-Israeli critics. Critics of Israel on US campuses are described by him as silencing Middle Eastern and North African Jews. Almost simultaneously, a call upon Jews to join a mass kaddish (a prayer traditionally recited in memory of the dead) on November 30th appeared on the pages of the Jerusalem Post. It remains unclear if these are grassroots initiatives or a well-orchestrated state-funded campaign. As the Jewish daily The Forward revealed, Mazzig is most probably a contractor paid by the Israeli government. 

 

While asserting correctly that the heritage of Middle Eastern Jews does not receive equal space in the American-Jewish establishment, the kind of heritage that JIMENA and wishes to promote is equally superficial and shallow and is mostly comprised of stories of persecution and harassment followed by a final expulsion and a Zionist redemption. The historical narrative they are offering has less to do with the particular heritage and histories of these diverse communities and more to do with a politics of competitive victimhood and a “quid pro quo” argument about the nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in which Jewish refugees from the Middle East are cast as mirror images of the roughly 750,000 Palestinians who were expelled during the 1948 War.

 

As historians who dedicate their careers to research modern Jewish history, who believe in the importance of studying the histories of Middle Eastern Jewish communities alongside Ashkenazi communities, we welcome the intent to deepen and broaden our understanding of the place of these communities. Eurocentric assumptions, including our tendency to understand Jewish modernity writ large as coming out of the experiences of European Jews, provides a very narrow prism that fails to capture the Jewish historical experience in all its richness and diversity. It is about time that academic Jewish Studies programs would expand their curriculum and educate the students and the wider public about the culture and history of Mizrahi Jews, alongside other non-Ashkenazi communities such as the Yemenite Jews, Iranian (Persian) Jews, Greek and Balkan Jews, Caucasus Jews, Bukharan Jews and more. We also believe in the value and the importance of heritage months to raise awareness to and help advance our understanding of marginalized social groups. Notably, per the Library of Congress website, the American-Jewish Heritage month is celebrated in May, as part of an effort of Jews to be part of the “big American Jewish tent.” We raise our eyebrows, however, at what seems as what might be an attempt to hijack this noble cause for a partisan issue and a state-sponsored invented tradition. Jewish communities in the US should pay greater attention to the non-Ashkenazi stories alongside the Ashkenazi saga. But we wonder if a day of commemoration that is copy-pasted mechanically rather than reflectively by Jewish diaspora communities would serve that purpose.


          

Targeted: Counterterrorism Measures Take Aim at Environmental Activists

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Midnight Sun Rifle Challenge Pt3

 Cache   


Kit lists. I’ve made a few. Mistakes I’ve made, a few more. Days when the sun never sets, I’ve only seen one. 

In the shambling spirt of Newby and Carless’ English amateur adventurism on their Short walk in the Hindu Kush, having watched a few videos by Thomas Haugland, I send a text to One Man Rifle-Maker. 

‘Midnight Sun Rifle Challenge 2019… fancy it?’ and receive the reply “ texted Thomas to say we’re entering”

Of all the events in the Viking Rifle Series calendar the MSRC is quite possibly the least appropriate entry point. It’s billed as ’24 hours of misery and fun’. Which in legal terms means they did give us fair warning. 

This is my second whistle-stop holiday with OMR. 
The last one was a pistol shooting trip of less than 24 hours, he’s not a fan of; travel, Europe, or anything other than the plainest food. He does like Norway though and despite his obvious discomfort he was a font of good cheer, I’d defiantly have cracked without him. Never did get to see him eat pickled Herring, which was something of a disappointment.

I spend a while talking up the plan, clearly no one believes i’m actually going. I make a few half hearted attempts to start a fitness plan, I will admit they look deeply unconvincing. I get sciatica, I enrol in a pilates class, the pilates class finishes and somehow i leave the yoga milfs to their fate and don't re enrol.  

The moment where you get to represent your country on the world stage is an honour few of you will ever be afforded, but just occasionally its possible to promote yourself to those dizzy heights without a man in a blazer, with a clipboard, telling you legal action will ensue should you continue. 
Still flying high on a moment of optimism, bravado and irony we become The Precision Wombles aka Team GB [self appointed]. Secretly hopeful that no more deserving competitor will make themselves known.

All of a sudden we’ve committed to flying to the top bit of Europe to compete against real Vikings in a sport where, at best we’re the founder members of the veteran-novice division, just two ill-prepared chubsters who should be old enough to know better. 

It’s not like we’ve entered the Marathon des Sables. How bad can it be?


It turns out Vikings learned to shoot across valleys at concealed targets with their first plate of fermented herring. We’re squadded with lads two thirds of my age. One of ‘em  takes second overall. Most of them are probably only two thirds of my weight too.

As members of separate gun clubs we both tried to inveigle others into joining us. We set up a facebook group which we join a few friends to, responses are for the most part muted. The clubs both have a lot of 308 and 223 shooters who work it all out in Minutes Of Angle, so perhaps ‘Build a 6mm/6.5mm rig with a scope that reads in Milliradians ’ as a minimum bid was a big ask. 

All I got was flat out refusal(s) to even contemplate entering: 

The Tall Geek: No. I’d have no chance of winning. 
Club matriarch-in-waiting: That sounds like its an long way from the hotel. No.
South Side D: No. Walking! No. Are you mad? Did I say No?

OMR at least mustered a few broken promises. But in the end it was just two tubby Precision Wombles who make up Team GB [self appointed]

There is a saying [often attributed to the British Army] : Proper Preparation Prevents Piss-Poor Performance. 
I wouldn’t know, but I can attest to the opposite being completely true.



On one of my sporadic trips to practice I’d suffered catastrophic scope failure, On the whole I’d still recommend a Delta Stryker for the money [and the new model looks even better] but my first one died losing its lateral tracking after just over 200 rounds. Delta are making some serious inroads into the VRS so later  I took the opportunity to canvas every other user I met, and it seems I was in the unlucky 1%. The vendor had arranged for me to be sent a replacement. It arrived with about ten days to spare, time and tide being what they are that equated to one and a bit  panicked visits to the range. 

I say ‘one and a bit’ as on the first outing the staff found the perimeter fence had been cut, which necessitated a cease fire order while the whole facility was searched, needless to say this took up most of our booking. Our non-refundable booking.

When I got my rig it came with a couple of cases of home loads which proved to be accurate at 100 and 200 yards, so pressed for time, I duplicated them. 140 SST’s sitting long in the case and right at the bottom of the charge table, hindsight is a wonderful thing, a hotter load with a flatter trajectory may also prove to be a wonderful thing out at 1210m.   

Amateurish I know, ‘schoolboy error’ I hear you say, but OMR was not to be out done. On our return from Norway within a couple of weeks he’s sold most of his battery and bought himself a very handy Ruger Precision in 6.5CM which, being a fair bit lighter than the Tiktac, looks just the ticket for these competitions. I only mention this as it’s the dawn come to cast out the mordor-ish  shadow of the strategy he employed during the actual competition. Although he owned some highly accurate stalking rifles, just like the rest of us there are slots in the battery that are filled by rifles bought on a whim. In his case it was a Steyr Pro in .260 that would more honestly be marketed as the Steyr Flex-O-matic. Its nasty plastic stock distorts if you tighten the action screws, it wobbles if you don’t, several people claimed to be able to see the barrel whipping from side to side like a tuning fork. Perhaps remembering Thomas’ video where Thomas felt that a ten round magazine would give the shooter an advantage on several of the stages, OMR brought the Flex-O. A decision he was to regret. Frequently. 



I’ve never traveled internationally with a firearm before so its with some trepidation that i rock up at Gatwick Airport, at OMR’s instance, four hours early, I’ve got my pack and a Peli 1750 with my rifle in it. Which probably weighs as much as my ex wife. 
That morning in Gatwick airport it dawns on me that I’d not prepared an opening gambit, walking up to a woman you’ve never met before, in an airport, and saying “I have a gun” is frowned upon pretty much everywhere. I decide to go with the euphemism ‘sporting goods’ 
I’ve now got the massive rifle case and fairly substantial pack balanced on an airport trolly, buffeting other passengers aside, I make it over to the woman organising the queue, and enquire where I should be.
“Gun?”
‘Yes it is’
“Have you got a licence for it?” 
‘Yes and I brought it with me otherwise I’m in a fair amount of trouble’, 
“Just go and stand over there babe’ 

OMR arrives before the armed response team and we wait together. The next woman gesticulates calling us to her desk, “Sporting goods to Oslo? “ She seems genuinely delighted to have something out of the ordinary to do and having drawn a blank over the phone leaves us at the desk to make procedural enquires in person. She in turn hands us to a fella who also seems nonplussed by this freak event, he goes off, he comes back and he goes off.

You need a European Firearms Pass to travel in Europe with your guns, but not to return [we’ll come to that later], Of course Norway was in the EU, but left. Being the pragmatic sorts that they are, and having long, permeable land borders with both Sweden and Finland [both still in the EU] they kept the simplified traveling-with-guns process. If you have an EU firearms pass you just walk through Nothing To Declare channel. If you don’t you need to be issued a temporary pass at the airport. 

Its fashionable to moan about our firearms licensing system but credit where credit’s due the Metropolitan Police turned around my request for a EU pass in less than a week. 
OMR’s force seemed to mistake ‘issue’ with ‘grant’ and had to be reminded of their service obligation by the NRA’s legal team. Whatever Brexit ends up meaning, if you have even the vaguest intention of traveling in Europe you’d be wise to get one issued, they’re free, and existing passes will probably be grandfathered in. People without EU passes will need a day off at each end of the trip to complete all the forms. 

Flying with firearms is notoriously a hassle, Ryan Air, my carrier of last resort, won’t even let you take a bow and arrows. Perhaps because Norway is a long country and the roads are clogged with Moose the national carrier almost expects you to have your rife with you. To fly with your firearm on Norwegen Air its £30 each way in advance or £60 on the day. OMR had spent much of the previous day on the phone forlornly trying to pay. Norwegen Air’s london office wouldn’t accept payment as the tickets had been sold by a third party, the seller wouldn’t accept payment as the request had Guns in the the title. 

The morning is ticking by. I’m putting a brave face on the growing sense of urgency. OMR isn’t keen on travel at the best of times. We’ve been passed from pillar to post. Eventually we meet with a nice man from Border Farce in a side office who makes a cursory inspection of our toys. We’ve handed over our rifles and ammo and he’s recorded us, and our rifle’s serial numbers in a ledger the trip is firmly in the lap of the old norse gods. We could arrive as competitors, or as observers awaiting compensation with a lot of explaining to do. The UK licensing authority takes an extremely dim view of allowing others to lose your rifle and ammo. 
In the excitement no one has extended their enquires as to how to charge us. So far so cheap. 

There are two sorts of english people at airports. Glam people and bus people. The glam people who seem to imagine there’s still something glamorous about air travel; they have their hair done, they dress up in their designer duds, and many of them spend time in an orangeification booth, all in a futile attempt to pass themselves off as classy international travellers. Like a horrible parody of what a poor person imagines a rich person looks like. Europe’s low cost airlines are often somewhere between the bus and the train in price, once out of earshot the staff will refer you and your loved ones as ‘the mud people’. Its all about as glamorous as a picnic in a supermarket carpark.  On Team Bus we bring our own grub and only travel with hand luggage. 

Gatwick is a horrible place and the airport its low point. The GBP [great british public] has little great about them. As usual its full of wildly over dressed women accompanied by their moody aggressive spouses, teenage girls with those handbags that cost as much as a pelican rifle case, dribbling children being towed along on garish suitcases by overwrought parents. Probably a hub for air rage. Defiantly a hub for bad skin. 
My usually solution would be to put a few away, but its still a bit early for more than a cursory Gin & Tonic, so we have breakfast instead. There’s a ‘spoons’. We have burgers. I have vague memories of OMR only eating plain food. He has his burger with nothing, just a patty and a bun, so plain that the barman says ‘mine are the same, kids can be so fussy, I bet next week they’ll want it with chilli sauce’.
Feeling a rush of bonhomie I ask the barman ‘Can i  have his pickles on mine? “This is the spoons mate, it’s not like we have real chefs”.

A couple of three hours later Oslo airport is everything you might expect it to be; spotless, made of laminated birch, and populated mainly by calm attractive tall people. The food stands look to be about he same standard as the hipster bars of hackney, the seating looks like it won a design award, the litter bins look like they came second. Here, to our consternation, the system breaks down momentarily. Our rifles need to be checked out of customs, then in again and the stop over will be conducted against the clock. 
Some speedy wombling later.  At the far end of the concourse we find a baggage guy who restores order, and we head upstairs to the check in for the next leg of the journey. 
Pillar-to-post begins again.  At the second counter we’re sent to the woman in charge gives us the cold one and asks why we haven’t paid, resisting the urge to haggle I offer to pay and we’re indignantly told she won’t be accepting payment, in retrospect this may have been some kind of super-dry Norwegian joke, we’re sent back the way we’ve come to see yet another chica check in, where we re-tell the story of our needs, convey our growing sense of urgency, and general mystification. An unexpected, yet welcome, “But why should you pay?” later our bags are checked and once again we really do seem to be £120 up on the morning. 

Leaving the unexpected delights of Oslo Airport behind we’re off the ground and on route.
From the air Norway looks like a archipelago of little blue-grey islands set in a narrow green sea,
We touch down on a small airport surrounded by snow covered peaks. Being Norwegians there’s none of the tedious pushing and grumbling you get when a plane full of English people arrives in Spain. So disembarking takes half the time. 
We wait by a luggage carousel so small you’d wonder why they bothered. Bardufoss airport serves some far flung military outpost where very young soldiers are sent to feel home-sick, and there are soldiers of both sexes, still in uniform, leaving for their holidays. One of them, as evidenced by his name tags, is literally called THOR. 
How Viking is that?

To say the Viking Rifle Series appeared bemused by our entry would be an understatement. But as competitors from Poland and Belgium all seemed to manage it, perhaps it was just us? 
We  registered in plenty of time, we’re offered places a while later, tried to pay but the transfer service didn’t like paying to accounts held in two names. Thomas kindly made a call on our behalf and the match director helped us with registration and promised to send someone to pick us up.


A Tall fella in outdoor dungarees and a thousand yard stare meets us at the airport, outdoor dungarees are more a sign of the outdoorsman than camo ever is, and when they’re patched with different ages and colours of patches you know he’s spent a few days afield. I mention this as you’ll meet him again later. He’s our driver, and a bit of a wag. He has that great northern thing where its still played for laughs, but delivered totally deadpan. For example this was his opening gambit. Delivered from behind a thousand yard stare

So what are your first impressions?
SBW: Its very beautiful, you’re all very tall, and the wit is very served dry
So I’m a cliche? 

He drops us off in town and we spend a sunlit expensive night in a very tolerable hotel. Overcome with excitement I buy a beer, just a can of beer. 100 NK or a tenner! Its not even a nice beer. One of the kids working the hotel’s night shift has lived in london, he rubs it in by reminding me a tenner is dinner two in The ‘Spoons.

For readers overseas: ‘The Spoons’ is a pub chain called JD Wetherspoons, where large commercial spaces like car showrooms, are repurposed into giant soulless pubs selling very cheap food and drink. Open from 8am they are both a cheap place to have breakfast, and perform the role that drop-in centres used to, for care-in-the-community types before austerity cut the funding. You’re very likely to be accosted by half hearted beggars on the doorstep, bags of shop-lifted steaks may be offered for sale, and its not unknown to find the staff crying in the toilets. I despise the owner, his childish politics and the way he treats his staff. But principles are for rich people, its a fine breakfast that comes with endless refills of Lavazza. For a fiver. I cant stay out of the place. 

Next time I’m in Bardufoss I’ll probably have transport and get an Air BnB as there are some really nice looking places on offer just outside town, but the hotel was fine, spectacular water pressure and flow rate in the shower, a firm supportive bed, and blackout curtains worthy of the name. I slept like a log. OMR tells me his nights sleep was stolen from him by horrendous snoring like a banjo duel played on chainsaws, cant say I heard it, must have slept though it. 

At Hotel Bardufoss they lay on a truly spectacular breakfast buffet, determined to claw back the tenner for that beer I shovel down breakfast in every European tradition: fruit course, cold cuts, muesli, yogurts [plural], fried things, and eggs a plenty. 

OMR has toast. Just plain toast. I knock up a few rounds of sandwiches for later.

There is an interesting article here on the Olive Press site. About 90 km/h speed cameras on motorways in Spain not allowing for the fact that you can go faster if you are overtaking.

Here is a quote from the article:

"An Automovilistas Europeos Asociados (AEA) statement said cameras on motorways were fining ‘anyone’ travelling above the speed limit without acknowledging a driver overtaking is permitted to speed up to 109km/h in this situation."

Los locales de ocio nocturno de Madrid contarán con un sello de calidad

 Cache   

El Ayuntamiento de Madrid presentó ayer la campaña de inspecciones navideñas a discotecas y salas de fiestas y espectáculos, que incluye como novedad la opción de que los locales de ocio se acojan de forma voluntaria a ser inspeccionados poder obtener un sello acreditativo de calidad, que dará seguridad tanto al empresario como a los consumidores.


La vicealcaldesa de Madrid, Begoña Villacís, dijo que “nos hemos sentado con todo el colectivo del ocio nocturno para dar este sello de calidad que va a dar tranquilidad tanto al local, porque garantiza que cumple, como a los clientes y a los padres de los clientes”.

El representante de los empresarios del sector, Tito Pajares, presidente del Círculo de Empresarios de Ocio Nocturno (CEONM) y vicepresidente de Spain Nightlife, señaló ayer que “los propietarios de discotecas, salas de fiestas y espectáculos aplaudimos esta medida porque no hay duda de que eleva la calidad del sector”.

A la presentación de esta iniciativa asistió la vicealcaldesa Begoña Villacís; el delegado del área de Desarrollo Urbano del Ayuntamiento de Madrid, Mariano Fuentes, y una representación de los empresarios del sector, Tito Pajares, presidente de CEONM y vicepresidente de Spain Nightlife, e Hilario Alfaro, presidente de Madrid Foro Empresarial.

"Los empresarios somos los primeros en defender un ocio nocturno seguro, responsable y de calidad. Queremos garantizar que los clientes tengan total seguridad. Es un ejercicio de responsabilidad basado en una filosofía de autorregulación”, agregó

Se trata de un proyecto piloto de colaboración público-privada en el que participarán los cuerpos de policía y de bomberos y que dará garantías de seguridad a los clientes de los locales de ocio, a sus familiares así como también a los dueños de estos establecimientos.

Camilo Ospina Guzmán, vicepresidente de la Asociación Internacional de Ocio Nocturno, que también asistió a la presentación, aplaudió esta iniciativa porque encaja perfectamente con el distintivo International Nightlife Safety Certified, que desde esa agrupación se está impulsando desde hace ya cinco años

El ocio nocturno en la Comunidad de Madrid representa el 1,6% del PIB regional. El sector, que cuenta con más de 2.600 establecimientos, factura anualmente 3.500 millones de euros y emplea a más de 20.800 trabajadores. Más de siete millones de madrileños y 3,3 millones de extranjeros son consumidores habituales de ocio nocturno.

Craig Peterson
Hey, hello, everybody. Craig Peterson here on the air at WGAN and all over the world on podcasts. You can listen to me by just going to Craig peterson.com slash iTunes that'll bring up the 800-pound gorilla podcast site.

You can also go to Craig Peterson dot com slash iTunes in and listen to my podcasts there, of course, and you can listen on right here to this station also on tune in radio. Additionally, listen to me when I'm on the air, three mornings a week now different stations different coverage. All of those end up on my podcast feed. I appreciate everybody who is going there and giving me a five-star rating. I know there are also a lot of people that are tuning in for the first time. Welcome. Welcome to all of you guys and gals. It is a wonderful, wonderful experience for me because we get new people, and I get to help teach you guys, help you to be able to understand the latest in technology. That's what I talk about every week. I have been in the technology business for many, many decades now. And I am still enjoying it. But you know, it's time for me to start giving back and start trying to help everybody understand what's going on. We spend a lot of time discussing security, what you should do for your home, what you should be doing for your Small Office/Home Office. Many of us, like me, work out of their houses now. That means you have different problems. When we catch China, Russia, and North Korea and then all of the criminal organizations all over the world. We've got all of those people trying to attack us. It gets very, very difficult to keep our data set. safe. And of course also, with all of the new technology, how do you use it? How do you make it work? Just this morning, we were on with a client, and they were meeting this is common, okay. But they were misusing the system that they have in place. They have a system that's in place to allow them to do diagrams, engineering diagrams. And unfortunately, the people they trusted to put it together to configure it, they did not do it anywhere near properly, nothing is SPECT, right, etc. And I know you'd think an engineering firm would understand that the specifications are there for a reason. They're there to be followed, right. And so the system has just been kind of, you know, hack together trying to make this thing work. And there ended up being an air coming up on their screen, and then the Good news, I guess for them is they had us be able to help them because I don't think there's anybody else out there. That is, you know, easy enough to find someone that could help them with this problem because the air looked like it was a licensing problem. The problem was that the database that they were using had lock records on it. Here's how they were using it. They have a database and applications that are running on this underpowered server. They were being accessed remotely by someone using a VPN on a laptop. And you know it all sounds pretty reasonable. The way they were doing it was running the application over on the laptop instead of on the server. So what they should have been doing is using either a virtual machine that that person could Connect remotely or use a terminal server that Microsoft provides. What happens is now he's running the app, the app is accessing the database via the VPN. So far, so good, right? Make sense? This virtual private network is letting his laptop think it's on the corporate network. This company has dozen-plus employees and a server with a database on it. The database is handling all the queries it's going through. Now, when you're talking about databases, I'm trying not to get too technical here, everybody. When you're talking about a database for a program, the database, hopefully, has what is called business rules in it. For instance, if you add a customer, you're not just putting one record in the database, you have a record that gives the basic information about the customer. It includes the name, maybe the address, and then you've got another record that's got the customer contact, who it is. Then there are also records about what they would buy for from us with totals, encounters, and things. It's called D normalizing a database. So all of these different records are created in different tables, maybe even different databases, but it's almost always one database. And so in order to keep all this information properly synchronized, because you don't want to have a record for the company, a business a client, and then have the, the your programs trying to access now how do I get ahold of this client and so it tries to go to the phone number database, so I'm just oversimplifying this slightly. Still, there's no record for the phone number database, you don't want that to happen. So what you do is you use a lock, and the lock helped to enforce these business rules to make sure Hey if I'm creating a new customer, I want to make sure I have their name, their address, the contact that we have. And so a contact record, and the type of company, maybe an inventory item, just in time stuff, whatever it might be, all of that needs to be there in the database. What happens is, there's what's called an atomic transaction. The database program, the software that you're running, identifies the customer contact and his records and returns the records for the company itself, the records for the inventory, and the shipping information records. And then it says, commit this all to the database. At that point, the database already has all of these records and reports it is ready to commit. Everything is there. What was happening with this client is they were on a VPN. And they were running the software over on the laptop. The software on the laptop was saying, Okay, so here's, here's the client we're dealing with, and we've got some new information for them. So let's insert this new information in the database. And so the database does a lock to hold. So we can get a customer number to generate all of this stuff in case somebody else is trying to do it. And then, the VPN connection goes away, or the laptop crashes. Something happens, right? Now, the application could crash crash, and if its on the server, the database could crash on the server, all of that stuff could happen. So when you get right down into it, there are tools to try and recover. But in this case, records were locked. They weren't lost. They were locked. So now when they went back in they were getting in an error message, they really couldn't understand what's going on here. Why? Why am I getting this error? We had to delve into it and contact the app developers and look at the databases, and then we had to remove the locks manually. Now, that's just great. We remove the locks. What that probably means they have a corrupted database, one that was corrupted silently, in a way that no one understands. And in some cases, if it's a real expensive application, it probably has stuff that does continuity checks and makes sure there's congruence between all the records. But that's not the case here. You know what it reminds me I saw the same thing at a doctor's office. They've been using the same software for many, many years. And the software uses a very, very basic database and This database, and I don't even know if I would call it a database, right? But I think of the old retrieve stuff if you're an old-timer like me, and what we used to do with those and which is great because it the beat trivalent, you put data out into files and then allows you to access it very, very quickly. But by today's standards, you would not consider that a database. So over the years, when they had a problem, they would just shut off the computer and then turn it back on, reboot, right. So now we're helping them win factory finish migration of all of their data from this very old it using 30-year-old technology, this ancient system for the doctors practice to a very modern one on Max, and it's cool the stuff they can do. You know, they can immediately while you're sitting there with the doctor, the doctor can check right away, what drugs you're on from other providers because the pharmacy that you use keeps all that information, it's all tied right in real-time. And the doctor can check for possible conflicts of some of these medications and immediately issue the prescription. So it's before you leave your consultation with the doctor. It's all done. It's just amazing for them, and they're having a hard time with some of these concepts. And I get that right. If you're using 30 old 30-year-old design software, which so many people are you know, some of these companies like Kronos, they have some new stuff, but they're selling some stuff that's just decades old. It's just been, you know, modified, modified. And so the basic concepts behind the software aren't there. So they had been turning off their computers. Off and on resetting control, alt, delete, right, all of those things that we've all done before. And their database was as corrupt as can be. And manual processes instead of automated processes to try and get their database up to snuff. So anyways, an engineering firm, we got it taken care of for them. Still, their databases almost certainly got corruptions in it, because they're not doing it as backed by the manufacturer. Right. And you'd think as I said, they know better. And we've got the doctor's office all up and running too. So that's good. So anyway, if you ever want to know a little bit about databases, you just learned it. When we come back. Hey, we're going to be talking about shopping Black Friday, Cyber Monday privacy. That's coming up today, and we're going to talk about Android again, and a whole lot more. Of course, you're listening to Craig Peterson online, Craig Peterson, calm and I'm WGAN

Hello, everybody, Craig heater song here hopefully you're enjoying today's show so far. Let's give a little bit of a rundown of what's coming up. We've got our Black Friday, Cyber Monday shopping information coming right up here shopping and privacy on today's show the number of imposture retailers. It is crucial, and I'm going to help you understand these sites because they are the imposter websites is outnumbering the legitimate websites for retailers and we're getting caught all of the time. We're going to talk a little bit about the IM and MSP shingle to your business security. I saw this again, and some of these ms peas MSS peas are they break from shops is what we call them. In other words, you call them when you have a problem. They're not proactive. But it turns out now not only they're not good at security, but they are a massive target for hackers. We'll talk about how that's a problem for your business and some things you can do about that. Hiring issues. Right now. If you're looking for a job that some of this scam online application stuff with this going on will tell you more targeting and tackling here some ransomware on Windows, which is way way up. Big Data brokers and your information. We talked a little bit last week about what Google's doing with Project Nightingale, which is scary enough, but we're going to get into that.

Facebook is introducing a new payment system. You might remember they were trying to launch this whole cryptocurrency, and it fell flat. Well, we'll talk a little bit about this Calibre wallet that's coming to our way, and cellular throttling and why it cost AT&T a chunk of change. If you use AT&T, you may be getting a check. You will have to fill out some forms. Then I discuss how you can reduce vulnerabilities by ditching Android. It is amazing. There's a study that just came out. And this is an article from Wired magazine that I have up on my website at Craig peterson.com.

Android is not Android is not Android. Every manufacturer has a different version of Android. Now, some of the core modules are the same, but they have to add their device drivers. They typically add bloatware is what we call it to the phones, and of course bloatware, you also see in Windows computers a lot. And those are those ads that come up that lets you get all of these premium features. All you have to do is pay us extra. They're out there doing all of this. And so my warning has always been, if you are considering buying an Android phone, remember that it might only be good for six months. I'm not talking about the hardware; some of the equipment is great. When I say some of the phones only be suitable for six months. It's because the security patches that are going to be needed for your phone will no longer be available. And my accountant came by last week and he just bought a new Android phone I told him don't buy another Android get an apple get an iPhone. If you can't afford a new iPhone by you don't even have to buy us To buy a model or two older iPhone, you will be much much happier and you will be much, much safer. But he got another Android phone. Why did he ask me about or why did he bring up because he knows I'm not an Android fan, right? So. So when we're sitting down, he's, he's not going to be sitting there pulling his phone today, Greg, that's great. No android phone I have because he knows I'm going to be all right. And in this case, it was I bought this phone now a couple of months ago, and I can't get updates for it anymore. Two months, two months, he had that phone, and he couldn't get updates for his Android phone. So it's not even six months in some cases is a lot less than other cases it's longer. If you're going to make the mistake of buying an Android phone, make sure it is the number one model in volume in sales. That manufacturer right now is Samsung. And the goal with that, but here's this story. And I've got some stuff I wrote up about it.

Every android phone is unique. Because the manufacturers can freely create applications, they've got to make changes to the device drivers, the interfaces, the carriers, which then upload their information into the cellular tables that are in it. They might have a different transmitter than was planned for they go for the cheapest, cheapest. And so they've got to rewrite that low part of the operating system completely. You're getting that right now. Well, here's what we have just found. Every Android has pre-installed as of today. Now, remember, I'm saying that some of these phones you can't get security updates after six months and only two months in some cases. Maybe it's a year. But there's a study out right now, that is saying that on average when you buy an Android phone, there are 146 vulnerabilities pre-installed on your phone. So these are bugs in the software that Google has already fixed.
Some of these were zero-day attacks. Many of them weren't. But on average, your new Android phone, according to this study, already has 146 security vulnerabilities before you even open the box. Right. Now, does that make sense to you? Now, if you buy an iPhone, you're going to find that the first thing that you're gonna want to do is you set it up, you put in, your Apple account or you create one they're absolutely free. Apple does not harass you about any of this stuff. They give you iCloud backup automatically. But you're going to set up your iPhone. One of the very first things that it does is it updates itself.


Apple, just with the most recent release of its operating system going to look this up right now. Age of an iPhone six, they just recently stopped supporting their newest operating system that doesn't mean patches for security problems. But their newest operating system does not support the straight-six. It supports the six s but not the straight-six. So I'm looking right now in Wikipedia, and it was released there we go in on 24 14. So right now, while we're talking, it is more than five years old. It's been over five years since it was released. So Apple provided full support soup to nuts support for the software on iPhone sixes for more than five years. And that's very typical for Apple and the iPhones. So if you buy, you can still purchase the six ass I would not personally because it's not going to be fully supported. The next time we come up with another phone, so you know next year or maybe early in 2020. If you are considering buying an iPhone and you want to save some money, you can still buy a seven, or you can always buy an iPhone eight. You can even buy the 10. My mom, who is well into her 80s now, wanted to replace her phone. I think she had an iPhone four and she just last week returned it. I said they go out and buy because she was confused. I said, go out and buy the iPhone XR. That iPhone 10 XR, which she did. It is a great deal. It is a fantastic phone. And it's going to last year another five years with full software support from Apple. So keep that in mind. You can open that brand new box with your Android phone with 146 security bugs in it before you even open it up, and it's not going to update itself to the latest patches. None of that's going to happen. Depending on the phone in the manufacturer. But get an iPhone right forget all of this stuff about Android. I do not sell iPhones I to make money off of iPhones. I do not work for Apple. Okay. My company, however, is a certified Apple authorized Support Center

Hello, everybody, Craig Peterson, here on WGAN live online, you can find me at Craig peterson.com. I often have some of these free pop up pieces of training and I've been doing Facebook Lives lately and just trying to get the word out, helping people understand what is happening in technology today. And we're on show number 1037. Now, the way I number shows is that's actually week number 1037. We should have done some big deal when we hit show 1000 but I, I didn't I probably should have But anyhow, so that's 1037 weeks of being on the air every week, which is pretty amazing when you get down to it and it's thanks for You guys, I so appreciate what you guys do by listening and supporting the stations I'm on and of course listening to the podcast and and the easiest way, by the way if you are an avid listener, if you will, is to go to Craig Peterson comm slash iTunes. And if you wouldn't mind, give me a five-star review and, and let me know what you think of the show right there. And I do read those and a quick shout out to people on the air frequently. I do.

Now, you know, I mentioned a little bit earlier than I do a lot of computer security. And it's a huge deal, and it's very, very difficult. I also mentioned these break-fix shops. Those are businesses that do computer support, but basically, you call them when there's a problem as opposed to them being proactive and taking care of issues for you. Which is what my company and I do alright, so there you go. That's what I do. Well, let's get into this whole MSP thing. I am an MSP RIR, and MSP managed security services provider. And I want to roll the clock back because I have something here that I remember pretty well. And then I want to talk about it because I have a cup of coffee in front of me. And it's sitting on a napkin. And so I want to tell you a little bit of background. And this has to do with experience, really, and knowledge if you're old enough to remember the whole y2k thing. And the biggest problem with y2k was, hey, and we've been writing software for years that rely on next year, being One year more than this year. Back then, we had to be very careful with all of our data and how much storage we were using. Instead of storing the year as we do now as 1975, we would save the year as just 75. Hey, it's not going to matter for another, what, 35 years. Y2k is going to cause the world to come to an end because nothing's going to work. That is, it had only been 50 years that this code. And we all know that there was a whole industry that developed to help companies make sure they are y2k compliant. Some people wrote software that reviewed other software to make sure that these mistakes weren't in it. And then y2k came and went with very, very few incidents.


Now, the reason people were worried about was legitimate. If you had an older GPS this year, say one that was more than five years old, maybe ten years old, you might have noticed that it stopped working? Did you see that? And the reason these things stopped working was the same problem everybody was worried about and y2k while almost the same problem. And that is counters rolled over from the GPS satellites. If you didn't have a big enough counter on your GPS receiver, you were in big trouble. The satellites themselves were fine. It was your little GPS receiver that's built into your navigation system, right.


Huge deal. You had to buy a new one. Well, it's a much bigger deal for the bank, but thinking what else was happening around the year 2000. I started building commercial internet properties as soon as it became legal because I'd been on the internet since the early 1980s. I've been designing and helping to design and implement internet solutions since the early 1980s. And I've been doing network work, and computer network works professionally since 1975. I've been doing security work, managed security for my clients since the early 1990s. There was a lot of work done out there. I go back now and think about the late 1990s. My coffee mug is sitting here on a napkin. And you know, you go to a coffee shop, the napkins are three by three inches square, give or take. And if you are getting a muffin, you might get a napkin that you could unroll, and that's maybe what eight and a half by 11. Give or take, right? It's pretty big. Well, in the mid to late '90s, people were going to specific coffee shops. I remember this so well out in Silicon Valley in California. They went to these p coffee shops because it was where angels hung out. Angels are people who if you don't know, invest money in early-stage startups, in other words, when a company is first going, and so if I were today to talk to an angel and say, Hey, I need some money, the angel would say, Okay, well, let's look at the business plan. We go through all the financials, I better have some customers already some sort of a proof of concept, minimum viable product that I can show them and say, yeah, look at this is looking really good. So I need 1,000,005 million to take this to the next level. Well, back then, in the late 90s. They would sit and have coffee with one of these angel investors. And they'd say, hey, I've got an idea for a business and they pull out a napkin. And they take a, pencil and they would sketch on the back of that napkin. What their idea why it's because it's going to be great. And the investors just based on that napkin, no product, no team, nothing but an idea. Based on that napkin, the investors were giving out five and $10 million checks to these people who, in my mind, were, were, fraudsters. You know, they convince themselves that they had the best idea in the world, and they were going to become the next billionaire. Maybe the first billionaire under 20 years old. A lot of these investors, Of course, we're a little older, and they didn't know how to deal with the internet. They didn't know much about it and very immature back in the late 90s. Although I'd already been on it for 30 years, well, you know, around it for 30 years and on for more than 20 then, so they were giving them crazy money just based on a napkin. So what does everybody do? Well, where's the money while the money is on the internet, and it's out in the Bay Area of San Francisco, San Jose. So I'm going to go out there. And some of these people, literally, I knew people that did this, they hopped on an airplane. They flew out to San Jose, with the intent of going to one of these coffee shops or about a half a dozen of them, that were known to be frequented by angel investors and venture capitalists. And it's kind of like somebody flying to LA Working Yeah, I'm an actor, and they're working in a coffee shop. And they're Bariza hoping to get spotted by that director to get their big break. A big problem. And because everybody saw that the internet was the place to be. Everybody hung up a shingle about the internet. So stick around. We're going to talk more about this. We're going to tie this into exactly what's happening today, to you to your business, when it comes to security. And so many of these firms that are out there right now trying to sell you stuff. So stick around. We'll be right back.

You're listening to Craig Peterson, right here on WGAN and online pretty much everywhere and at Craig peterson.com stick around. We'll be right back.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig beater song here. Of course, we're on WGA. And we are online, Craig Peterson calm. And good news. I'm on pretty much every podcasting platform out there. And I've had more than 20 million podcast downloads since I started podcasting 15 years. The numbers are picking up. We just had got another 100,000 downloads recently. I'm pretty jazzed with that. It is all because of you guys. The more you are of you who subscribe to my podcast, the more it gets noticed, and the more people hear about it, and of course, then what that means is, we're able to help more people, and that's why I'm here. It is a labor of love. Alright, so let's get into the rest of the story from what I was talking about earlier, which is if you missed it, I talked a little bit about the history of the internet and internet investment. These companies that were spun up from a business plan that was nothing more than a rough sketch on the back of a napkin at a coffee shop. Okay. It's a big deal here. But we'll let's think about some of the biggest failures on the internet. And you've heard of some of these. You've probably heard of like pets.com let me just run through a few here. Ship raise 62 million dollars and failed. That's SHYPBP raised 149 million before they got wiped out. Juicer, all Yeah, that's a reasonably recent one 118.5 million pepper tap 51 million Sprague 56 million yak yak 73 million. And you can go online, look for some of these things. I found an article that had 323, startup failures, and post-mortems for all of them going back, just kind of way back. But, you know, back to 2014, which isn't the start of the internet, right. That's not the reach. The time we're talking. Okay. Timo meter, and this is a great one, by the way. Multiply $30 times one client times 24 months. Wow, we'll be rich. Okay. They got funding, right. Why didn't we get funding? Why didn't you get funding right with your great idea? So everybody started throwing their hat into the ring. They were going to these coffee shops out in Silicon Valley pitching and hopefully come with a good idea.

Of course, the investors wanted to have a billion-dollar company. Hey, it's not so bad. I put, you know, 5 -10 million in and I'm able to take a billion dollars out with a big company that's got a 5 billion valuation right. Wow, we're all going to be rich. And of course, that is the extremely rare case. So let's fast forward to today. And talk a little bit about what's happening right now. I've got an article up on my website that we put together called "I am an MSP shingle and your business security." Think of that word shingle. We talked about all of these. I don't know what to call these people, because they were out trying to get money for their ideas and were quite convincing. They weren't thieves, necessarily, although some of them probably were. But they didn't know any better. They didn't know what they should have known. Today, of course, the internet's much more mature. It's still not fully mature. It's changing every day, the way things are sold and marketed and used, and everything on the internet is just constant change. But right now, what are we talked about on this show before when it comes to open jobs, we know that the economy pretty much has full employment. But for the past three years, I think ever started ever since I started running the webinars for the FBI info guard program, ever since I started running those. There's indeed been somewhere between one and a half and 3 million open cybersecurity jobs. So Let's get right down to the economics of all of this. And I, I was following some stuff, and I've been developing material carefully in the industry because this is kind of the industry that I'm in. And I found out something that I thought was just kind of a DA moment, right? That's when you hear something, and it's I should have thought of that. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Right. We all have those. And so I had this moment, which is, if you have been a break-fix shop of what you've been doing is you take a call from somebody, and you sell them a computer, or you g a call from somebody, and you go out, and you spend two hours with them and you charge them three or 400 bucks for that service call. First of all, I don't think that serves the customer very well because the customer is going to be worried about calling you and the poor person that's having the problem doesn't want the boss to get upset because they called you right? So that's not helping the business very much. And on the other side, if you're trying to sell hardware nowadays, you know, we'll sell someone at $3,000 $4,000. workstation for one of their employees to use not even a high end one. And our margin is like 50 bucks on it. Nowadays. It obviously depends on the manufacturer, but there's like no margin in that business anymore. So if you were faced with that, if you owned a company, that all they really did was they sold some computer hardware when there was a refresh. And you went out and you did some repairs and some telephone support. And what would you be thinking? Why are retailers closing on you're basically a retailer? That's the business you're in. You're competing against Amazon, you're competing against Dell online, you're competing against all these guys. So what I've noticed happening, and I've noticed it because my company is what's called a master managed security services provider. We're a master security services provider because we work with these smaller companies that don't have the security expertise, and they know it.

Now there, there's a lot of people that don't know it. We just talked about all of these failures. Back in the boom days of the internet, hundreds of millions of dollars, billions just went down the drain. So some of these people think they know enough, but they don't. So they'll come to somebody like us, who is a master managed security services provider, and we'll be the people behind the scenes designing the networks and security infrastructure. They can meet the DFARS requirements or ITAR or HIPAA or PCI or some of them, many, many TLA's and FLA's out there, right. TLA is is a three-letter acronym, and an FLA is a four-letter acronym. So in business, we all have those. But that's what they'll do. Now, I got to tell you, the vast majority and I'm going to say 99% from my personal experience. And so I don't know what the real numbers are. I don't think anybody has the actual numbers for this. But, and I'm going to say 99% because I have never seen an exception to this rule. But 99% of these companies out there don't know enough to make the right decisions or to help the customer make the right decisions when it comes to security. Now, this presents a huge problem for everybody. Because we have all of these people who were PC repairs and Windows support people, these companies relied on Windows coming out with a new version from Microsoft. And it will work on your old hardware because you need more memory, you need more space on your desk, you need to have a faster computer to run Windows eight, right? And then Windows 10 comes out. And a lot of people what they've done over the years is they say, you know, my machine is old, it's slow. It's cluttered. I could probably reload windows and get my speed back. But I just assumed by new computer, and that's what these people relied on for literally a couple of decades here. You are in the crosshairs of hackers if you're a business and even if you're just a regular home user. Oh my gosh, the problems you guys all have because now the hackers have figured out that these companies that call themselves managed services providers, but don't have enough knowledge about security, to protect even themselves adequately. These so-called managed services providers have now become a significant target for the hackers, including nation-state, think about it for a second. If you've hired a managed soft or managed services company of some sort, you've given them access to all of your computers, and they probably have your passwords, right? They have all of this stuff. There is an attack going on right now against Connect wise and directly against Ms. Peas. They've scanned the internet to find anybody that mentions MSP on their website, and then they start attacking them. Cause they have the keys to the kingdom, your kingdom. So here's the advice to minimize your risk.

We had two weeks ago an attack that hit an IT services firm Everest, which is a subsidiary of NTT, one of the largest MSP is in Spain. They had to shut everything down, cut network links, try and figure out what happened. And in this case, it was ransomware. But they're also going straight for the data. It's happening every day. Okay, this is one of the largest, so yeah, my gosh, Here's what you have to do. You have to treat your managed security services provider as an insider risk. Just like any employee, you have your own IT staff. They are a risk to your business. They have access to All of your intellectual property, your client lists your employee records, right? They have access to all of it. So treat them like an insider. Understand the risks, do not let them keep your passwords or other information. And what we do for our clients is we never keep them. We cannot tell you what your password is, and we have to reset it. And we use specialized software, that when we access one of our client's computers, it keeps track of the right passwords and those are changed frequently and can be changed. Every time a technician connects, it is a huge deal, there you go. Some people are hanging out their shingle, saying I'm an MSP. Be very careful if you treat them like an insider, and mitigate your risks. All right, when we come back, by the way, in the next hour, we're going to be talking about online shopping. You're listening to print Peterson on WGAN.

Hey, hello everybody, Craig Peterson here on WGAN online at Craig peterson.com. I appreciate everybody being with us today. We went through a bunch of stuff in the last hour. And we talked about, you know, MSP insider threats a little bit. I want to finish up the whole thing about insider threats. People have been asking if they should treat any managed services provider, break-fix shop, or any third party who is taking care of our computer equipment as an insider with a potential insider threat. So how do we treat insiders and this whole insider threat thing? Well, I should do a training on this up pop-up training.

The veryfirst thing you have to do is figure out what is your most valuable asset in your business. Now, for most of us, it's our intellectual property. Frankly, those are our plans, our designs, our engineering diagrams, and it's our money, you know, bank account information, employee information, anything that could cause you to fail an audit. If you get audited, do you have all of the records? But if you are in a business that requires that you have security, what's going to happen when they come in and audit, okay, so any of that sort of data is information that you should protect. That means a lot of different things. I've taught some courses on this before, but it includes things like segmenting your networks so that people who don't need to get it at data can't get the data. In this day and age, for the truly paranoid, we see this more and more, it's called a zero-trust network. So people or machines can only get at things that you explicitly allow. So it isn't as though anyone in accounting can get to this, it's this person in the accounting can get to this. So all of your data is segmented. And again, don't let them keep your passwords. Try and do some of the administration stuff yourself, at least on the password side. Change the password and save it in an encrypted password manager to keep track of those passwords. Then when you have to call your managed services provider or your break-fix shop or, or your niece, whoever it is, who's taking care of your computers, you give them the password for that machine. They can get on and can do their thing. They get everything working, you watch them as they're working, which is another thing that we do. We're only on the machine when there's someone else watching, remotely. And we record all those sessions. By the way, anytime any one of our techs gets onto any machine, we have someone watching them. That is important. When the tech completes their work change the password.

The whole idea here is that they don't need to have them. And as I mentioned before, we've seen a growing number of managed services providers from around the world being targeted and compromised by hackers, including the large ones. That goes to show again, and even the big guys aren't as concerned about security. Or maybe they don't know enough about security as they should be. I was out at a prospect's place just a couple of days ago. We're talking with them about their managed services provider that they had. I mentioned earlier, this 99% number, and this is my number. But I say 99% because I have yet to find a single managed services provider that is doing security reasonably well. I have yet to find one. And that's kind of bad news, frankly, when you get right down to it. And so that's why I say 99%, right, I give the 1%. Now, I know there are Managed Security Services Providers that know how to do it, but this is a challenging world. Bottom line, is if you can find someone that you trust 100% implicitly, they are not keeping your password, not getting into machines, without permission, then you have to trust them as an insider, basically, an employee that you kind of trust, but you don't absolutely imagine and make sure obviously, you keep those employees in line too. We're going to be coming up here in just very soon, actually another segment or two, with what you need to worry about for your holiday shopping. I want to start this whole thing off by talking about what you should be doing and how to verify a site and whether it's legitimate because it turns out there are three times more fake shopping sites than there are real ones out there. So be very, very careful of that. Now, before we get into that, let's do about these bogus hiring scams, it confuses me because when you get down to it, we have such high employment rates right now. It makes you wonder why the bogus ones are having such success out there. I don't know. Maybe people are just trying to look for a raise because there are so many great job opportunities. I don't know. Okay, employment is at an all-time high. With the economy buzzing like this, finding workers for seasonal part-time work is getting harder and harder. Think about what Black Friday means. Black Friday is when retailers finally become profitable or "in the black" as far as books go. It's not quite as true as it used to be. It used to be that most of the year retailers operated in the negative and it took until right around Thanksgiving before things turned around, because that's when people start shopping for the holidays. So these employers are now having to compete with the spam employment opportunities on top of it all. And the whole online application process is just fraught with opportunities for fishers to glean all the information they could need to impersonate you. So you've got to be very careful, and one of the things you can do, and this is the same thing if you're looking to purchase online, is verify that you did not end up on a scam site. So bottom line, if you're looking for a job, and most people are going to start their job search on Google, which is an okay place to start, and they might top in or type in seasonal opportunities. Just yesterday, I was sitting with my wife, and she did a download to the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint. We subscribe to Office for all of our employees, including my wife, as she helps out with the business. Anyway, she did a Google search, and instead of "office," she typed "orifice," and you know slip up, and you know how it is when you kind of automatic type sometimes. She typed for Microsoft for this download, and we got results that were all scam websites. It was all set up to make you think that you were on the Microsoft Office website and that you were downloading legitimate Microsoft Office software. I was sitting right next to her. I suspect many of you might have clicked on some of that stuff, you never know what's going to happen? Because again, she was automatic typing, she didn't notice she had mistyped it. And she might not have seen these sites weren't a legitimate site. So you have to keep an eye on that. If you're looking for part-time jobs and they come up in the Google results, you might try typing in the website directly. So let's say you want to take a part-time job, but Walmart or Target or something, go to the Target.com website and make sure it's legit. How do you make sure it's legit? Well, we're going to talk about that a little later in this hour. We're going to talk about verifying the shopping sites, but if you go to their website, and if there are multiple pages on the website that all look legit like there's a real shopping cart, there's real stuff online, there's real privacy, disclaimers, etc. That's probably a real target site, and it's not a scam site. And then you can go ahead and fill out the Hiring information. I would be cautious about putting in things that are a little too personal. You want to give them your background and a way to contact you. But be careful with things like your social security number or bank account numbers. Many employers nowadays are asking for your social media account information. So it's one thing to say while you can go to twitter.com slash Craig Peterson and you'll see my Twitter feed. It's quite another to give them access to your Twitter account, and some of them are asking for that. They want your Twitter account username and password and your Facebook username and password. Because many times we are sending stuff using direct messages back channels, hidden channels that they're not going to see when they go to your public-facing Twitter page or Facebook page. And so Martin Employers are saying hey, listen, we want to have a good inside look at your social media account. So I would not give them any that sort of information. Remember if it is a scam, even if it's not a scam if they get hacked, which has happened before to target all of the TJ Maxx, guys, etc. that information could leak out. Alright, so I'll stick around when we come back we're going to talk about tackling ransomware and Windows. And we're going to also talk about a new payment system that's was announced and then we'll finish up with what you should be doing for the holidays. You're listening to Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online at Craig peterson.com. I am on pretty much every major podcast platform. Thanks for listening today. Stick around. I'll be right back.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig Peterson here listening to me on WGAN and online. Hey, if you enjoy the show, if you listen to podcasts at all, I encourage you to subscribe to your favorite podcast platform that helps get the show noticed and gets it out. And even better if you could share it with a friend and make sure you subscribe. I'd appreciate it. You know, we put a lot of work into these. I think we're giving great information. I get great feedback and emails. I had a couple over the last few weeks here actually two weeks that were saying that these were some of the best shows of mine they've ever heard. And I've done well over 1000 shows. So I think that's, that's an excellent thing, and I appreciate those types of messages that I get from you guys. So you can always email me, let me know what you think. What is it about Though the show that you liked, maybe you have some ideas or some topics that you want me to cover all of that stuff is just great and I would love to hear from you again. Me M-E at Craig peterson.com couldn't be much simpler than that could it.

Let's get into this. We got a couple more quick security articles. Just general information here about Windows and Facebook, and then we're going to get into Black Friday scams, and of course it doesn't just go for Black Friday, this is throughout much of the holiday shopping season; actually, these all apply all year. Then we have these fake retailer sites I'll tell you about them how they're popping up and, and a little bit more about the signs. We covered that in that last segment a little bit when we were talking about the hiring scam, so stick with us today. We got a lot more to cover here before we're off the air, hard to believe two hours, can go by so fast. So let's start with windows here. Ransomware has been a problem for a long time. And for those that don't know, ransomware is where some software gets on your computer. There are a lot of mechanisms for nowadays, but it gets on your computer, it encrypts your files so that they become useless to you. And then it asks for money, the typical payment in Bitcoin, which is, by the way, attributed to be the number one reason Bitcoin Bitcoin has risen in price, and I can see that.


There is a new study released. We've got more than 1 billion Windows operating system powered PCs in use in the world today. And that makes them a huge target for hackers. Now, just this morning, I was talking with one of our engineers, and I was saying how impressed I am with Microsoft recently. Since Balmer and Gates left, it has been a fantastic, amazing company. They've been able to maintain compatibility with older software right now for the most part while increasing their security, and they have turned a lump of coal into something that's, that's worthwhile, right? I still don't think it's anywhere near as good as something like Mac OS is on the apple side. But not everybody can run Mac OS, not everybody understands it. So major kudos to our friends over at Microsoft. It's amazing. But they are a big target, and they do have a large attack surface. In other words, there are a lot of things in Inside Microsoft Windows that can be and are currently under attack. You have to be kind of leery about some of these potentially unwanted applications that are on your machine. You might have heard me mentioned before some of the bloatware that gets installed by the computer sellers. And what they do is they load up all their programs. And they get paid. It's like five bucks. They'll get paid to load 50 different games, and you know, anti-spyware, software, and McAfee or Norton, all software that is practically useless to you. And then you have to spend hours removing that bloatware from your computer. But it's not just the bloatware that's out there. There are crypto coin miners installed on our computers, unbeknownst to us. There are all kinds of vulnerability exploits Trojans, and nowadays, ransomware and what's called file-less malware. Fileless malware is why 100% of the antivirus solutions that are out there today don't work anymore because it's a file, so it never hits the disk, so they don't have a chance to examine it. So having white label type of antivirus not white-labeled, but whitelist might be beneficial. But even in those cases, there's a lot for us consider. Now we're finding ransomware that's crypto locking, is growing, the number of attacks is growing. The number of successful computer accesses is growing. Now, to me, the most disappointing part of the numbers as I've looked through this in some detail, in this report that came out.

The thing that disappoints me the most is much of the time. They are using exploits that have been around available for a couple of years or more. Many of these were patched by Microsoft, Adobe, and Oracle years ago. These are the ones that upset me the absolute most. We see now, the most significant year-on-year increase of any malware in the ransomware community, almost 75% increase since last year. So if you know someone that has had ransomware and I bet you you do somewhere in your circle of acquaintances, I don't think he would have to go out too deep right. I think it is about a 75% increase. According to Bit Defender, the number of ransomware reports dropped in the first half of the year due to one big hacking group called Grandacrab, who throttled down their efforts due to ramped-up law enforcement efforts. Now, ransomware is rising again, as these new ransomware groups are emerging to fill the void left by Grandacrab. I'm not going to go through the names of all of this different type of ransomware. These profit-motivated cybercriminals and they're just spending a little bit of time and a little bit of money because the to buy this ransomware. Some of this stuff is even licensed now. Where they have to, they download it for free. They can try it out on so many people, and then they have to go to a registration site and buy a license to use the ransomware. And then off it goes in that can be just 100 bucks. It's incredible. Here but they're also saying that they're seeing reports of miners and Phylis malware out there too. So coin miners, those are where you go to a website, then you know how the site says, Hey, can we send you news updates and you say allow or disallow yes or no on that you've seen those before, right? Those are not all illegitimate. Many of them are, most of them are legitimate. But that's how the coin miners are working. And so they will embed some code in a website, a legal site, and the coin miner will then start using your web browser to mine for various types of like Bitcoin type currencies that are out there. Okay. So we see a lot more in the ransomware style. We've got to be very, very careful. And about 40% of the population of the 1 billion people that use Windows about 40% admit the They have not applied security patches even though they're available. So make sure you ask them nowadays you don't have to go out and spend a lot of money to buy a license for Windows, you can pay monthly. And you don't have to worry about Windows upgrades anymore, because included. That's what we do with all of our customers; we include everything. Okay, we try and make it very, very easy for them. This article, as well as all of the other ones I've talked about today, and a few others we're not going to be able to get to today are all up on my website at Craig peterson.com. Please visit me there, you'll learn about the pop-up pieces of training. I have some of the Facebook Lives. The themes for the week and all of that stuff. You know, I'm not going to spam you with marketing messages. I'm just trying to get this out the truth out, Craig Peterson dot com. Hey, stick around. We'll be right back here listening on WGAN and online as well.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online at Craig Peterson calm and on your favorite podcasting app. And please do spend a minute and subscribe if you haven't already. Well, we talked about cryptocurrencies, many, many times, when they first started coming out for started rising to prominence. I had set up a little mining operation to figure it out, and I had my wallet and everything and, and it was a little too late in the game to find Bitcoin, like right off the bat. That's why I stopped because I was only interested in finding out more about the technology. So you have to use it if you want to understand it. That's kind of the bottom line on it. And I looked at it as kind of a gimmick, and of course, we now know that the cybercriminals online found Bitcoin To be phenomenal when it comes to being able to get paid in a more or less, kind of a quiet way, right? Where people are not aware of where the money's coming or going. Now, remember that Bitcoin is not anonymous. None of this data is genuinely anonymous, bottom line, but it is kind of, you know, private, more or less. So they use it for pain ransoms. I attended an excellent briefing by the Secret Service about how they tracked down some of the bad guys that are using Bitcoin. And it was frankly fascinating, and how they've been successful at that. So don't think that you're going to somehow because you're using a cryptocurrency going to be out of the reach of the hands of the law because you're not going to be okay criminals will get caught. But we had another end enterprise, and I don't like it. Some people would probably call them a criminal enterprise called Facebook out there. And you might remember Facebook decided they were going to come up with this whole new network, they're going to do Libra and it was going to be a cryptocurrency. Now, cryptocurrencies are getting to be a serious business. You have, for instance, the government of China active in developing a cryptocurrency. China frankly, wants to be able to have a currency that they control that they can peer into the becomes the International Monetary standard, instead of the U.S. dollar. So China has been working on this for about five years, and frankly, next year, I think you can expect that China is going to have a state back state-sponsored cryptocurrency that they're going to be pushing all over the world. They are going to try and get oil valued in their cryptocurrency. I think that's a bit of a problem for us here in the U.S. and will be a challenge for our economy too. But when we look at somebody like Facebook, where they're trying to set up this network, called the Libra network, I was thinking good thoughts about it.


I know you are wondering, wait a minute, is this the Craig I've grown to know over the years What's going on here? I was kind of happy about it, as it possible for anyone anywhere in the world to have a financial transaction with you. For instance, I know some ladies who are in Africa, and they're impoverished women and trying to make ends meet and just have not been able to earn $100 a month. And many of these women are brilliant. Some of them are entrepreneurs, and they want to get a business going. And this particular group of women is now making themselves available after a friend of mine trained them here been in some technology, how to use computers and how to be a virtual assistant system. They are making themselves available as a virtual assistant. What could be more accessible for these women, and for the people who might want to hire them, than to make their transactions a cryptocurrency of some sort? A currency that they could use at their home that we could use at home. A currency that we could trust to a high degree. Remember, coins like if you have a U.S. dollar bill that you want to spend, the only reason it's worth anything, is because it's considered to be Legal Tender backed by the United States government. Now it isn't supported by silver anymore or gold anymore but deemed to be reasonable, legitimate currency. Initially, the Facebook Libra network announced they had a dozen or more of the foremost financial institutions in the United States. They would all work together and cooperate in developing this currency. Now, several reasons got squashed, not the least of which is governments and wanting to tax them and not being able to track some of the transactions easily. But I'm sure Facebook would have provided the governments with all the transaction information they wanted. Okay. So frankly, it would make it even easier for governments to track transactions than it is now. But the thing I loved about it was thinking about these women that my friend trained over in one of the poorest countries in Africa and how it would change their lives. I don't know if you've watched those some of this stuff here on micro-investments or watch how they're working. There's one organization called Shanta (https://www.shantafoundation.org) that quite impresses me. They're working in Myanmar. Interesting what they're doing, but when the basic idea with micro-investments is that somebody like you, were I, we might put $1,000 into this. And you've got someone in some countries somewhere that wants to buy a cow for the milk, and they're going to sell the milk, or they want to buy a goat or for the milk or whatever it might be micro to us. And so they're lent $100 to start a business. And they go out, and they get that business going, and they repay the loan, and that money is just put right back into another loan to another person that wants to do it. I've been following these micro-investments, and am very, very impressed with what many of these places are doing. And that led me to notice something else, which was the presence of phones, just regular cell phones that can send text messages, not smartphones. But the presence of phones and cell service coming into these tiny, tiny villages. And how most women were taking these phones. And we're using them to create businesses to support themselves and their families. Just absolutely amazing and many of these women, in fact, I think almost all of the ones my friends been teaching our single women, they've been either abandoned by their husbands Or the kids, Father, whatever you might want to call them. And they have to do all of the support. And so they're spending a whole month's wages, they're spending $100 to go through this program, this one-month long program that my friend runs. And so she's been looking for donations of laptops, just regular windows laptops, to help these women out as well. But these women get these cell phones and just with the cell phone now, there is some technology out there right now we don't use it in this country. Still, in several other developing countries that they can send money to people and receive money to people just using text messages. So just using their cell phones brought them out of extreme poverty. Now you know, we have poverty in the U.S., but poverty in the new in the U.S. looks like somebody that's upper class in these countries does. Okay. We don't know what poverty is. What we call poverty isn't, you know,' it's just astounding to me. So I got excited when I saw this whole idea behind the Libra network and what Facebook was doing with Calibra wallet. So we got to go for break, and we're going to come back I'm going to finish this up because there's something new and exciting that's happening in this space now. And then we're going to get into our Black Friday scams, and some more fake retailer sites. If you want more details, you're going to have to go to my website at Craig Peterson dot com. I'm not going to be able to cover it entirely in either the radio show today here on WGAN or my podcasts. You can find my Podcasts on pretty much every podcasting platform or my website, Craig Peterson dot com stick around, more to come

Hey, Craig Peterson, back here on WGAN. I can't believe it's been two hours since we've been together today. Man does time fly. So going back because I want to finish up our last topic here about the microtransactions and about what our friends at Facebook had been doing trying to put a cryptocurrency in place. It completely fell apart about a month ago. Facebook is planning to start rolling out something called Facebook Pay on messenger and on Facebook itself. Today, it's going to be initially available for fundraisers person to person payments, event tickets, in-game purchases, and from some pages and some businesses that are on the Facebook marketplace. And they're planning on bringing this to more people and more places. They're going to be adding not just messenger, but adding Instagram and WhatsApp to this. So basically, what they're trying to do now is use this technology to make it possible for people to pay each other no matter where they are. Now, you already know because you're just listening, you already know that I think that's a unique idea. And that is going to lift people out of poverty. Just like capitalism has, it's the best system the world has ever invented, to lift people out of poverty. And if Facebook successful this, they will save lives as well. And of course, there's the other side, Facebook's going to make a ton of money on this. Because they're going to, obviously they'll have some form of transaction fees, and they'll be making some money over that. Okay, so we got more stuff we're not going to get to today because I want to get to the Black Friday scams and the retail stuff. There either is a new secret consumer score that you have never heard of before. And I am not, unfortunately, to get time to do much. With that, I say now it's been out there for probably the better part of a decade. I found some information about it from the New York Times back in 2012, and the Wall Street Journal back in 2018. There is a scoring system that's keeping track of us, and one with which you are probably not familiar. So that's up on my website, Craig peterson.com and 18 T's and green to pay $16 million to settle a legal dispute over smart throttling smartphone plans. So they came to that agreement with the Federal Trade Commission. Okay, so now into Black Friday scams. These are happening all the time. They are souped-up during Black Friday and Cyber Monday when there's a lot of people buying stuff online, and I'll let's get into it here. This shopping fever lasts for about four days right now. Some sites like Walmart start on Wednesday, and others are ready underway here. But let's go into some of these top scams. Man, we've only got about 10 minutes left here.

So number one, this is a great article. It's from Heimdal Security dot com. I've got it up on my website at Craig Peterson dot com. If the website insistently asks you to download its application. Now, we already probably have apps from merchants. I've got Amazon, for instance, there are apps from Walmart Target, Ollie Express, Rakuten, Barnes and Noble, and the little guys are having a hard time competing there, but they try nonetheless. Now, a lot of these websites are going to talk you into downloading their mobile apps. And there's nothing wrong with that. But remember that not all of these retailers are legit, and not all of the legitimate retailers the apps are legitimate because it's rare that they would be developing the app themselves. So they probably had a third party do it. Who knows, right? So don't just willy nilly install apps from retailers are going online number two, the website looks fishy. And of course, this is pH fishy. And what that means is you might be on a cloned site. Right now, there are I was saying three earlier, but I was wrong. According to research from Venafi, they were looking at what is called TLS certificates. These are SSL certificates used basically if the website says HTTPS, then they're using TL. So they examine these. And they found that there are four times more fake retailer sites than the real one. Okay? So there are typos, squatting domains. I mentioned one of them earlier in the show today that my wife accidentally typed orifice instead of office when she's tr

UN chief warns of ‘point of no return’ on climate change

 Cache   
MADRID – U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Sunday that the world’s efforts to stop climate change have been “utterly inadequate” so far and there is a danger global warming could pass the “point of no return.”

Speaking before the start Monday of a two-week international climate conference in Madrid, the U.N. chief said the effects of rising temperatures – including more extreme weather – are already being felt around the world, with dramatic consequences for humans and other species.

He noted that the world has the scientific knowledge and the technical means to limit global warming, but “what is lacking is political will.”

“The point of no return is no longer over the horizon,” Guterres told reporters in the Spanish capital. “It is in sight and hurtling toward us.”

Delegates from about 200 countries will try to put the finishing touches on the rules governing the 2015 Paris climate accord at the Dec. 2-13 meeting, including how to create functioning international emissions trading systems and compensate poor countries for losses they suffer from rising sea levels and other consequences of climate change.

Guterres cited mounting scientific evidence for the effect that man-made emissions of greenhouse gases are already having on the planet, including record temperatures and melting polar ice.

But he insisted that his message was “one of hope, not of despair. Our war against nature must stop and we know that that is possible.”

Countries agreed in Paris four years ago to limit global warming to well below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, ideally 2.7F, by the end of the century compared with preindustrial times. Already, average temperatures have increased by about 1.8F, leaving little room for the more ambitious target to be met.

Guterres said growing demands from citizens, particularly young people, have shown there is widespread desire for climate action.

“What is still lacking is political will,” he said. “Political will to put a price on carbon. Political will to stop subsidies on fossil fuels. Political will to stop building coal power plants from 2020 onwards. Political will to shift taxation from income to carbon. Taxing pollution instead of people.”

Guterres noted that about 70 countries – many of them among the most vulnerable to climate change – have pledged to stop emitting more greenhouse gases by 2050.

“But we also see clearly that the world’s largest emitters are not pulling their weight. And without them, our goal is unreachable,” he said.

The U.N. chief said he hoped the meeting in Madrid would see governments make more ambitious pledges ahead of a deadline to do so next year.

He also said that creating a worldwide market for emissions, which is a key element of the sixth article of the Paris accord, remained one of the most contentious issues for negotiators.

“We are here to find answers for Article 6, not to find excuses,” Guterres said.

Guterres also announced that outgoing Bank of England governor Mark Carney will become his new special envoy on “climate action and climate finance” from next year.

Organizers expect about 29,000 visitors, including about 50 heads of state and government for Monday’s opening, as well as scientists, seasoned negotiators and activists during the two-week meeting.

Some of the world’s largest carbon emitters – the U.S., China and India – will be represented by ministers or lower-level officials.

The U.S. administration of President Donald Trump, which has announced the intention to withdraw from the Paris agreement, is represented by Marcia Bernicat, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of Democratic lawmakers to the talks.

More than 5,000 police officers are charged with keeping the summit safe, Spain’s Interior Ministry said Sunday. Although authorities have stepped-up border controls and cybersecurity measures, authorities have kept the country’s terror alert one level under the highest, where it has been ever since extremist attacks in Tunisia and France in mid-2015.

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

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

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

4.

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

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

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

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

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio denied accusations made by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that he was funding arson in the Amazon. Earlier this week, Bolsonaro alleged DiCaprio was donating money to non-governmental organizations that he alleges contributed to the forest fires that ravaged the rainforest earlier this year. In an Instagram post Saturday, DiCaprio denied Bolsonaro's claims and stated his support for Brazilian groups working to protect the Amazon, but he said he did not fund the groups targeted by the president. Additionally, two major environmental groups protecting the Amazon criticized Bolsonaro's accusations, calling them an attempt to "undermine environmental defenders and distract the general public from policies that directly lead to environmental disasters."

A male stabbing victim reportedly walked into the hospital at 4:30 a.m. E.T. on Saturday. Police didn't identify the man, but a source confirmed to ESPN that it was Pryor.

Nancy Pelosi leads Democratic delegation to international climate change summit

 Cache   

The White House may be carving out its own path when it comes to climate change, but Washington will still be involved at an upcoming international climate summit in Madrid.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is leading a Democrat-only congressional delegation consisting of 13 House members and one senator to Madrid's COP25 summit. "One of the goals we have is to make sure that all of those who are in the Paris Accord know that the Democratic majority in the Congress of the American people are very concerned about the climate issue, understand that we have to set goals and have a plan on how to achieve them, and to talk about some of the things that we have done," Pelosi told Bloomberg Environment before departing for Spain.

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

President Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, which was brought to light in 2016 at the COP25 summit in the French capital. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said earlier this month that the U.S. had begun formal proceedings to leave the accord, though it won't become official until after the 2020 presidential election. Trump isn't expected to make an appearance in Madrid, but the administration is sending a small delegation of diplomats to represent Washington, CBS News reports.

The holiday shopping season kicks off on Friday with traditional Black Friday sales, though many retailers got a jump on the competition by getting started with deep discounts on Thanksgiving Day. Analysts forecast data to show that online shoppers spent a record $4 billion on Thanksgiving. The total had already reached $2.1 billion as of 5 p.m. Thursday, a 20.2 percent increase compared to the same point last year. Demand was so high on Thursday that Costco's website and app were briefly hampered by heavy traffic. Black Friday is continuing to evolve, as many stores try to snag a bigger share of holiday sales by cutting prices days or even weeks before what used to be a one-day shopping frenzy. Shoppers are expected to spend up to $731 billion in November and December, roughly 4 percent more than in the same period last year. [USA Today, MarketWatch]

Asian stocks struggled on Friday after President Trump signed a new law supporting Hong Kong protesters, prompting an angry reaction from China and raising fears that the tensions could derail talks on ending the trade war between the world's two biggest economies. The MSCI All Country world index fell by 0.4 percent after nearly reaching an all-time high set in January last year, before the start of the U.S.-China trade war. In the U.S., stock index futures inched down ahead of a shortened trading session. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq were all down by about 0.2 percent, although the S&P 500 remained on track to close its best month since June.

The European Parliament on Thursday passed a symbolic measure declaring a "climate emergency." The move raises pressure on member states to take action to curb emissions blamed for climate change ahead of a United Nations climate summit starting Dec. 2 in Spain. In recent months, hundreds of regional and local administrations have approved similar declarations, but Thursday's vote was significant because the European lawmakers who passed the measure represent 500 million people. "Five years ago, no one would have expected the European Parliament to declare a climate emergency, so there's some progress," said Sebastian Mang of Greenpeace. Dissenters in the 429-225 vote objected to the use of the word "emergency," suggesting the use of "urgency" instead. [The Washington Post, Reuters]

Morgan Stanley has ousted, at least temporarily, at least four traders in connection with an alleged effort to conceal between $100 million and $140 million in losses by mismarking securities, Bloomberg reported Thursday, citing people with knowledge of the matter. Morgan Stanley is investigating the case, which is linked to emerging-market currencies, Bloomberg's sources said. A representative of the sixth-largest U.S. bank declined to provide an immediate comment to Bloomberg. The traders who were fired or placed on leave were based in London and New York. [Bloomberg]

Shares of Tech Data Corp., a multinational tech distribution company, surged by 12 percent on Friday after the company agreed to be purchased by Apollo Global Management in a deal worth $6 billion. Tech Data's board unanimously approved the private-equity group's offer of $145 a share. Apollo previously offered $130 per share, but sweetened its bid after Tech Data received an undisclosed higher offer. The deal amounts to a 30 percent premium over Tech Data's closing price on Oct. 15, the last day before news broke of a possible deal. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway reportedly tried to buy Tech Data for $5 billion, but was beat out by Apollo. [MarketWatch, CNBC]

President Trump made a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Thursday to spend part of Thanksgiving with U.S. troops. During the visit, Trump's first to Afghanistan, he announced that the U.S. and the Taliban have reopened peace talks. He said he believes the Taliban want a truce in America's longest war. "We're meeting with them," Trump said. "And we're saying it has to be a ceasefire." Trump had cut off talks with the Taliban in September and canceled a secret meeting between Taliban and Afghan leaders after a flurry of violence. During Trump's 3 1/2 hours at Bagram Air Field, Trump also served turkey to U.S. soldiers, who cheered him when he entered the dining hall. About 12,000 American troops remain in Afghanistan.

Police restored school administrators' control of Hong Kong Polytechnic University on Friday, declaring that there were no pro-democracy protesters left on the wrecked campus after a two-week siege. Police arrested hundreds of protesters during the showdown. On Thursday, a team of about 400 officers conducted a sweep of the university, and found nearly 4,000 firebombs, 921 gas canisters, and 588 containers of chemicals, including acid and other corrosive liquids. The transfer of control back to school officials marked the end of one of the most intense clashes between protesters and police in a month of escalating unrest following the death of a student who fell from a parking structure during a police operation.

North Korea on Thursday launched two short-range projectiles into the waters off its east coast, South Korea's military said. "Our military expresses its strong regret over (the launches) and urges (North Korea) to immediately stop acts that escalate military tensions," said Maj. Gen. Jeon Dong Jin, a senior operations officer at Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff. The missile test came three days after North Korea said its soldiers had held artillery drills near a disputed sea boundary. The latest missile launches were the 13th public weapons test conducted by North Korea this year as Pyongyang pushes for a new U.S. proposal to resume stalled talks on trading nuclear concessions for sanctions relief.

Powerful winter storms hammered parts of the country on Thursday, complicating Thanksgiving travel. Heavy snow forced the closure of Interstate 5, a major highway in Southern California, leaving dozens of vehicles stuck with snow still falling. The highway, which joins Southern California with the rest of the state, was reopened later in the day, but forecasters warned more snow and rain could fall in the area. A so-called bomb cyclone, with a rapid drop in atmospheric pressure, brought up to four feet of snow in some mountainous areas in the Pacific Northwest. The winter storm was expected to move east, bringing snow and high winds across much of the West before continuing toward the Great Plains late on Friday. [Reuters]

Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union and a key witness in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump, on Thursday reiterated his denial of sexual misconduct allegations made by three women in an article jointly published Wednesday by ProPublica and Portland Monthly magazine. In the article, Sondland said the claims were "concocted" for "political purposes." One of the women said Sondland backtracked on plans to invest in her business after she rejected his advances during a tour of a hotel he owns. Another accuser, a work associate, said Sondland exposed himself to her. The third, who is 27 years younger than Sondland, said he forcibly kissed her when they met to discuss a possible job. One of the accusers, Nicole Vogel, owns Portland Monthly. The alleged incidents took place years ago, before Sondland was named as Trump's E.U. ambassador. [The Wall Street Journal, ProPublica]

Thousands of demonstrators rallied in Hong Kong on Thursday to express appreciation for two U.S. laws supporting human rights in the Chinese-ruled semi-autonomous city. President Trump signed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act on Wednesday. It requires an annual review to confirm that the former British colony still has enough autonomy to justify its special trade status. "I guess Trump wanted to give us a Thanksgiving present, and we're glad to accept," said Wong Yiu-chung, a Lingnan University politics professor who attended the rally. Chinese officials on Thursday angrily condemned the U.S. measures as "an epitome of gangster violence," and an act of foreign meddling intended to hurt China's economic growth. [Los Angeles Times]

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday urged President Trump to avoid commenting on Britain's upcoming election during next week's NATO summit in London. "The best (thing) when you have close friends and allies like the U.S. and the UK is for neither side to get involved in each other's election," Johnson told LBC radio. Johnson pushed for the early election hoping to break a stalemate over Britain's planned exit from the European Union. Trump has already made controversial comments in the vote, saying in October that Johnson should join forces with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and that the opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn would be "so bad" for the country.

Acclaimed American free-solo rock climber Brad Gobright died in a fall while on a well-known path on a rock known as El Sendero Luminoso, or the Shining Path, in northern Mexico's Potrero Chico national park, Mexican authorities said. His body was recovered Thursday. Gobright and a climbing partner, Aidan Jacobson, fell about 20 feet to a ledge after their rope got stuck, but Jacobson landed in a bush, which broke his fall. "It was basically a blur," Jacobson, 26, told Outside magazine. "He screamed. I screamed. I went through some vegetation, and then all I remember is seeing his blue Gramicci shirt bounce over the edge." Gobright fell nearly 985 feet to his death, which the State Department confirmed in a statement, saying, "We offer our sincerest condolences to his family on their loss."

Germany's Crisis Is a Very Good Thing

 Cache   

Germany's Crisis Is a Very Good Thing(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken, the new leaders of Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD), may be about to do Germany and Europe a favor. That’s not thanks to any inherent qualities they possess; both are colorless and unimaginative left-wingers vaguely resembling Britain’s Jeremy Corbyn, though not quite as reckless. Rather it’s because they may want to take their party out of its coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right bloc, a possibility that has sparked a full-blown government crisis. Anything that shakes the country out of its torpor offers a ray of hope.The current government of the European Union’s largest economy has been inexcusably mediocre, and is badly in need of change. Name almost any major challenge facing Europe today, and German flexibility and leadership is as needed as it is absent.The euro area is at risk of stagnating, and Germany is the economy that could help the most, with a big fiscal stimulus. Instead it clings doggedly to its fetish for balanced budgets. The currency union is vulnerable to another euro crisis unless it is strengthened with a full banking union, including a common deposit insurance scheme for the region’s lenders. But Germany balks at anything substantive.At a time of geopolitical turmoil, Europe must also rethink its military readiness and alliances. Yet Berlin keeps defying calls from its NATO allies to spend more on its army, which isn’t remotely prepared to help protect eastern Europe against Russia, if it ever came to that.The government did try to come up with a plan to tackle climate change recently, which is more than most Western countries can say. But the package wending its way through the legislative system is laughably unambitious.The Merkel administration’s domestic policy record is even worse. Germany’s last major economic reform took place under her predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder. In her 14 years in power she has attempted nothing on such a grand scale. A tax reform is long overdue, especially as other countries cut their corporate tax rates. Then there’s immigration law, which would benefit from a points-based approach like Canada’s to alleviate Germany’s shortage of skilled workers. But Merkel’s cabinets, three of which have included the SPD, have merely tinkered. A ballyhooed digital upgrade of Germany’s economy was all talk and no byte.The best that can be said about the present coalition is that it survived the refugee crisis of 2015-16 and restored order subsequently. Yes, the parties checked off most of the projects they agreed on when they reluctantly renewed their governing partnership in early 2018. But that was an underwhelming list signed off by coalition partners who openly loathe each other.The effect is that Germany and Merkel, who’s made herself a lame duck by declaring she won’t run for office again, have forfeited their leadership role. This has left a vacuum at the heart of Europe, which Fance’s president Emmanuel Macron is trying to fill. He has been asking the big questions about the EU’s future, expecting support, or at least replies, from Germany. The silence in Berlin has been deafening.In frustration, Macron has started taking ever bigger risks; musing about new European military alliances, a new relationship with Russia, a new economic design for the euro area, and a halt to the enlargement of the EU. The Germans don’t know what to say to such adventurism. Suspecting a hidden neo-Gaullist agenda, with France seizing the reins in western Europe, they’ve reverted to acting as Macron’s spoilers.Berlin hates political crisis. It comes out of a cultural fear of “instability” that dates to the chaotic Weimar Republic (or rather, what came after its failure). But these worries are overblown.Consider the main scenarios. First, next weekend the SPD must anoint Walter-Borjans and Esken and decide what to do about the coalition. They will no doubt demand a new direction from Merkel, including a boost to the minimum wage and other leftist goodies. The conservatives (who are struggling in the polls) will have no choice but to stand firm and say no.The SPD might then attempt to walk out of government. Merkel would in that case probably ask for a vote of confidence in parliament. In Germany, a chancellor can only be voted out if parliament simultaneously elects a new one. So either Merkel or a successor would have a good chance of staying in power as a minority government.

Germany's Crisis Is a Very Good Thing

 Cache   

Germany's Crisis Is a Very Good Thing(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken, the new leaders of Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD), may be about to do Germany and Europe a favor. That’s not thanks to any inherent qualities they possess; both are colorless and unimaginative left-wingers vaguely resembling Britain’s Jeremy Corbyn, though not quite as reckless. Rather it’s because they may want to take their party out of its coalition with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right bloc, a possibility that has sparked a full-blown government crisis. Anything that shakes the country out of its torpor offers a ray of hope.The current government of the European Union’s largest economy has been inexcusably mediocre, and is badly in need of change. Name almost any major challenge facing Europe today, and German flexibility and leadership is as needed as it is absent.The euro area is at risk of stagnating, and Germany is the economy that could help the most, with a big fiscal stimulus. Instead it clings doggedly to its fetish for balanced budgets. The currency union is vulnerable to another euro crisis unless it is strengthened with a full banking union, including a common deposit insurance scheme for the region’s lenders. But Germany balks at anything substantive.At a time of geopolitical turmoil, Europe must also rethink its military readiness and alliances. Yet Berlin keeps defying calls from its NATO allies to spend more on its army, which isn’t remotely prepared to help protect eastern Europe against Russia, if it ever came to that.The government did try to come up with a plan to tackle climate change recently, which is more than most Western countries can say. But the package wending its way through the legislative system is laughably unambitious.The Merkel administration’s domestic policy record is even worse. Germany’s last major economic reform took place under her predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder. In her 14 years in power she has attempted nothing on such a grand scale. A tax reform is long overdue, especially as other countries cut their corporate tax rates. Then there’s immigration law, which would benefit from a points-based approach like Canada’s to alleviate Germany’s shortage of skilled workers. But Merkel’s cabinets, three of which have included the SPD, have merely tinkered. A ballyhooed digital upgrade of Germany’s economy was all talk and no byte.The best that can be said about the present coalition is that it survived the refugee crisis of 2015-16 and restored order subsequently. Yes, the parties checked off most of the projects they agreed on when they reluctantly renewed their governing partnership in early 2018. But that was an underwhelming list signed off by coalition partners who openly loathe each other.The effect is that Germany and Merkel, who’s made herself a lame duck by declaring she won’t run for office again, have forfeited their leadership role. This has left a vacuum at the heart of Europe, which Fance’s president Emmanuel Macron is trying to fill. He has been asking the big questions about the EU’s future, expecting support, or at least replies, from Germany. The silence in Berlin has been deafening.In frustration, Macron has started taking ever bigger risks; musing about new European military alliances, a new relationship with Russia, a new economic design for the euro area, and a halt to the enlargement of the EU. The Germans don’t know what to say to such adventurism. Suspecting a hidden neo-Gaullist agenda, with France seizing the reins in western Europe, they’ve reverted to acting as Macron’s spoilers.Berlin hates political crisis. It comes out of a cultural fear of “instability” that dates to the chaotic Weimar Republic (or rather, what came after its failure). But these worries are overblown.Consider the main scenarios. First, next weekend the SPD must anoint Walter-Borjans and Esken and decide what to do about the coalition. They will no doubt demand a new direction from Merkel, including a boost to the minimum wage and other leftist goodies. The conservatives (who are struggling in the polls) will have no choice but to stand firm and say no.The SPD might then attempt to walk out of government. Merkel would in that case probably ask for a vote of confidence in parliament. In Germany, a chancellor can only be voted out if parliament simultaneously elects a new one. So either Merkel or a successor would have a good chance of staying in power as a minority government. That idea is anathema to Germans (Weimar, again), but neighboring Denmark and other countries prove minority government can work. Merkel or her successor would have to seek issue-by-issue support from the Greens or the pro-business Free Democrats. That would at least require open debate, which would be a boon to German democracy after years of parliamentary inertia.If a minority government fails, Germany’s president, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, would call new elections. Yes, Europe has been having rather a lot of those lately. But in Germany — unlike Spain, for example — new elections would actually change the composition of parliament, because the Greens would replace the SPD as the second-largest party and obvious partner of choice for the conservatives.

Portugal, France and Germany in Euro 2020 super group

 Cache

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

Monster Black Hole That 'Should Not Exist' Discovered in the Milky Way

 Cache   
An anonymous reader shares a report: Astronomers think our home galaxy -- the Milky Way -- is practically bursting with black holes, with estimates of up to 100 million of the invisible beasts hiding across the galactic neighborhood. It was generally assumed these black holes could reach a mass of up to 20 times that of the sun, but the discovery of a "monster" black hole, with about 70 times the mass of the sun, has surprised Chinese astronomers. In a new study, published in the journal Nature on Nov. 27, a research team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences peered across the galaxy with the Large sky Area Multi-Object fibre Spectroscopic Telescope (Lamost), based at Xinglong Observatory in China. Black holes don't emit light, so astronomers have to get crafty when they go hunting for them. Usually, this involves looking for signs a black hole is feasting on a nearby star or the gas and dust that swirls around them. If the black hole isn't feasting and if it isn't surrounded by bright gas and dust, it becomes a little trickier to locate. But, using Lamost, the team examined the movement of stars across the sky, searching for those that seemed to be orbiting an invisible object. Follow-up observations with telescopes in Spain and the US helped the researchers discover a star about eight times bigger than the sun. Intriguingly, it was orbiting a "dark companion": The monster black hole, dubbed LB-1. "Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our galaxy, according to most of the current models of stellar evolution," said Liu Jifeng, astronomer at the National Astronomical Observatory of China and first author of the study, in a press release. "LB-1 is twice as massive as what we thought possible. Now theorists will have to take up the challenge of explaining its formation."

Belzebubs: : bring their black magic to Rock Fest Barcelona

 Cache   

The fallen stars of melodic second-wave black metal BELZEBUBS are steering their tour bus towards Spain next summer, as they set out to storm Rock Fest Barcelona in July.

“We’re absolutely hextatic about this”, states vocalist/guitarist Sløth. “We have seven gigs set up so far with more in the works, and we’re looking forward to finally playing some of the material from ´Pantheon´ live. Our fans have stuck with us throughout the years, so it’ll be quite a thrill to climb up on stage and return the favor. You’ve scratched our balls, our time to scratch yours.”

BELZEBUBS have been booked for the biggest European metal festivals in 2020 with more gigs already under negotiation. The mysterious occultists released their critically acclaimed Century Media debut “Pantheon of the Nightside Gods” last April. The long-awaited LP, mixed & mastered by industry legend Dan Swanö, features numerous guest musicians (ICS Vortex, Skvllcraft and Desibelius, etc.) and has been hailed as a “beautifully crafted masterpiece of blackened metal”. The band has previously released two music videos and a lyric video, which can be found here:

A Way Out of Spain’s Catalan Crisis

 Cache   
On October 14, Spain’s Supreme Court sentenced several leaders of the Catalonian separatist movement to lengthy prison terms for their role in organizing a controversial independence referendum two years ago. What followed seemed, in some ways, like a tragic replay of the failed 2017 secession bid: protests erupted in Barcelona, some descending into vandalism; riot police manhandled peaceful protesters; and Catalonia was left without a clear path to resolving its differences with the central government. Little, in other words, has changed in the two years since Madrid declared the referendum illegal and temporarily dissolved Catalonia’s regional government. Until recently, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his center-left Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) ruled out any and all dialogue with the pro-independence Catalan leaders. After an election in early November, Sánchez moderated his stance somewhat—a concession to the far-left party Podemos and to pro-independence members of the Spanish parliament whose support he needs to form a workable left-wing government. As a result, dialogue with pro-independence political parties is becoming more of a possibility. But for reasons...

CoP vows strong response to cop killers

Date: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019 - 21:15

Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice Gary Grif­fith strong­ly con­demned the re­cent mur­ders of po­lice of­fi­cers as “cow­ard­ly acts” and has promised that the Po­lice Ser­vice will re­lent­less­ly pur­sue those re­spon­si­ble.

 

“It has been ob­served that over the last weeks there have been dead­ly and vi­o­lent firearm at­tacks against the po­lice…The TTPS re­mains res­olute and unit­ed with its law en­force­ment coun­ter­parts to re­duce this un­ac­cept­able lev­el of vi­o­lence and en­sure that all per­pe­tra­tors will be pros­e­cut­ed,” Grif­fith said in a re­lease is­sued yes­ter­day.

Grif­fith made the state­ment in light of the mur­der of po­lice sergeant Roger Williams, who was killed along with ven­dor Na­toya Chris­t­ian, 37, of Laven­tille dur­ing a shoot­ing on Char­lotte Street in Port-of-Spain on Sat­ur­day evening. Williams’ Sig Sauer pis­tol loaded with 14 rounds of 9mm am­mu­ni­tion was re­cov­ered by a mem­ber of the pub­lic, se­cured and hand­ed over to the se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer, who ar­rived at the scene that evening.

Mean­while, Williams’ col­leagues are said to be shocked and very dis­traught over his death.

They strong­ly be­lieve that giv­en a chance Williams would have drawn his weapon and “killed the gun­man.”

 

Ac­cord­ing to his col­leagues, Williams was a ded­i­cat­ed of­fi­cer and “well trained, ex­pe­ri­enced and alert. Williams, who was a pros­e­cu­tor at the Port-of-Spain 6th Mag­is­trates’ Court, was fond­ly called “Willie” by many.

“Un­for­tu­nate­ly he had no time to draw his gun oth­er­wise the on­ly death would have been the gun­man but from what we were told, is that his back was turned to the di­rec­tion of the gun­man…we have lost a good of­fi­cer…one who took his job very se­ri­ous­ly on and off du­ty,” Williams’ col­league said, who wished not to be iden­ti­fied.

An­oth­er of­fi­cer de­scribed him as a “big broth­er.”

“He was al­ways hum­ble and gave great guid­ance.”

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, at about 7 pm on Sat­ur­day, two men were seen walk­ing along Char­lotte Street when they opened fire on a group of peo­ple.

Chris­t­ian and Williams and two oth­ers—Elvon Gild­ings, 28, of Laven­tille and a 46-year-old fe­male ven­dor from Dil­lon Street, Diego Mar­tin, were shot. Chris­t­ian died on the scene while Williams died while un­der­go­ing treat­ment at the Port-of-Spain Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal.

Gild­ings, a ven­dor, re­mained ward­ed at the hos­pi­tal while the fourth vic­tim was treat­ed and dis­charged.

Grif­fith along with the ex­ec­u­tive of the TTPS ex­tend­ed con­do­lences to Williams’ fam­i­ly, col­leagues, and friends.

San Fernando man shot dead

Thir­ty-three-year-old Clint Bhag­wan­deen had an ar­gu­ment with a man short­ly be­fore he was gunned down at a bar in San Fer­nan­do on Sat­ur­day night. Bhag­wan­deen of Ol­era Heights, San Fer­nan­do, died at one of his reg­u­lar lim­ing spots, D Up Lo Lounge, Cof­fee Street, San Fer­nan­do. He would have cel­e­brat­ed his 34th birth­day in two weeks.

 

Po­lice were told that Bhag­wan­deen was lim­ing at the bar when he had an ar­gu­ment with a man who sub­se­quent­ly left, but threat­ened that he would re­turn to “shoot up the Cof­fee.” Bhag­wan­deen did not pay the threat much at­ten­tion and re­mained at the bar. Some­time lat­er around 9.40 pm, he was lim­ing at the out­side sit­ting area of the bar when he was shot sev­er­al times.

Near­by per­sons scam­pered for safe­ty while the gun­man ran off.

No one else was shot. The bar is lo­cat­ed very close to the Homi­cide Bu­reau of In­ves­ti­ga­tions Of­fice on Cof­fee Street. Guardian Me­dia vis­it­ed his Hous­ing De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion apart­ment build­ing at Ol­era Heights, but no one was there. Ten­ants said he lived alone. Po­lice said he was charged pre­vi­ous­ly for pos­ses­sion of a firearm and am­mu­ni­tion. Vis­it­ing the scene was a par­ty of of­fi­cers led by Snr Supt Wayne Mo­hammed, and in­clud­ed among oth­ers, In­sp Nanan, Sgt Williams and Cpl Ra­moutar. A dis­trict med­ical of­fi­cer or­dered the re­moval of the body and an au­top­sy is ex­pect­ed to be per­formed to­day at the Foren­sic Sci­ence Cen­tre in Port of Spain.

While the delegation will include members of both the House and Senate, it will not be bipartisan, as only Democrats will be attending....
Good to know that the Pubbies finally figured out what "Green on the outside, Red on the inside" actually means.  Only took them about 30 years.  Wouldn't be surprised if Mitt-the-Traitor showed up there accompanied by Paul Ryan, though.

Brindisa Kitchen to open at Borough Market Kitchen in January

 Cache   
This January, Brindisa, the home of Spanish food in London, will open Brindisa Kitchen at The Borough Market Kitchen in London SE1. All dishes and drinks at their newest Borough Market home will guide visitors on a culinary journey in the footsteps of an ancient Spanish pilgrimage, ‘La Ruta de la Plata’. This Roman route was a highway for goods, troops, traders and travellers, and winds through Spain from white sandy shores of Andalucía in the south to the wild Northern Asturian coastline. Set in the heart of The Borough Market Kitchen, Borough Market’s new communal dining space, the restaurant will be walk-in only, seating guests around a marble-topped, horseshoe-shaped bar. Backed by dusky blue tiles, there’s a seafood counter where diners can take their pick of the day’s freshly landed catches, or simply watch the kitchen at work. Rockfish from the north, trout from the rivers, salt cod from inland areas and crispy fish and tuna from the south form the backbone of the menu. Wild game, lamb and pulses from the woodland and mountains along the route create a food journey through ‘España profunda’. There's bar snacks and salazones (salted cured fish), followed by a traditional choice of raciones or half raciones of heritage dishes such as river trout with ham, white beans with crab, plump escabeche mussels with romesco sauce and fried whitebait with broken eggs. A short, simple section of ‘side routes’ completes the menu. To finish, or even to start, diners can choose award-winning cheeses from farms dotted along La Ruta de la Plata, such as Barros Torta, a tangy cardoon sheep’s cheese from Extremadura, and Payoyo, made with milk from the goat indigenous to the Sierra de Cadiz. For dessert, there’s cherries in orujo, a grape liqueur, or daily-changing ‘buñuelos dulces’, sweet fritters. The drinks menu also follows the latitude of the trade route, from single estate sherries straight from the bodegas, through to Asturian cider and wines from Alvar de Dios’ vineyards around León, Zamora and Salamanca. Brindisa Kitchen will showcase indigenous grape varieties and wines from artisan winemakers in these lesser-known regions that will complement the food inspired by the corresponding areas of Spain. For the traveller just beginning their day’s journey, Brindisa Kitchen will be open for a hearty breakfast of migas, churros and thick hot chocolate, as well as stove coffee and more. Throughout the day, guests on the move can grab a coffee and sweet snack to take with them as they explore the market. Founder and co-owner Monika Linton said, “Brindisa Kitchen allows us get closer to the fascinating variety of the mini lands - or ‘comarcas’ - that line La Ruta de la Plata. I’m looking forward to delving deep into the local cultures: their recipes, crops and ingredients, their one pot dishes, family dishes and seasonal food habits.”

Have you heard of Spain's most distinctive red grape called the Tempranillo wines? It is one of the most delicious cult wines that sommeliers and wine enthusiasts want to collect apart from Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.

Not every wine enthusiast knows a lot about this wine, but once you've got a taste of Tempranillo wine, you'll certainly want all its bottles.

Imagine a taste of a full bodied wine with a lot of tannin and acidity, and is abundant in flavors. The most exciting characteristic of this wine is its grape ripens earlier than other Spanish grapes.

If you want to know more about this strange-sounding wine, here are all the details you can munch.

What is a Tempranillo?

The name Tempranillo came from a Spanish word Temprano which means early. This is because this grape used to produce this wine matures way earlier than other varieties  in a relatively cold and hot climate.

There are 88 percent of this crop grown in Spain, according to Wine Compass. There are also Tempranillo grapes planted in other parts of the world, especially in America and Australia.

You can actually have your own vineyard and have these grapes planted in your lawn because it is adaptable. But of course, if you want to have the most tasteful Tempranillo, then make sure that you have a good climate in your area.

Tempranillo Wines

The ripe skin of Tempranillo grapes gives bright colors to its wine plus good tannin and acid. That is why it can blend so well when creating a wine. Tempranillo is also known as a good combination of oaks. Winemakers also used oaks to balance the wine's color, tannin, taste, and texture.

Winemakers used the oak trees to make a barrel where the fermentation happens. The barrel also matters in creating a wine because it can affect the color and quality of a wine. Other winemakers also put oak chips in a stainless vessel during fermentation. It affects the taste of the wine, especially during the process of evaporation. It also lowers the exposure to oxygen, which affects its taste.

Tempranillo can be found in many regions, but you can find the tastiest wine in select regions only. Rioja and Navara regions produce wines with very good tannin. Other Tempranillo wines are also called Ribera del Duero, Toro, and Cigales, and they are deeper, darker, and have intense tannins.

The largest regions in Spain are La Mancha and Ribera Del Guadiana, which are known as the suppliers of the best Tempranillo wines in the country.

Other Facts About Tempranillo That You Should Know

  1. It is the oldest variety of wine, and the most recent variation of Tempranillo wine is from 1807. According to some theories, the first bottle of Tempranillo wine was introduced three thousand years ago to the Iberian Peninsula.   
  2. Tempranillo grapes dominated in Rioja Spain, and among all the vineyards in the world, it is the easiest to identify because of its structure.
  3. Tempranillo plant is not only used for wines, but it can be a beautiful vineyard attraction as well. During fall, its leaves will turn bright red, and the whole vineyard will glow. Imagine yourself walking in the vineyard with a glass of wine, enjoying the beautiful view of its leaves.
  4. A white mutation of Tempranillo was discovered and identified as a Tempranillo Blanco. Surprisingly it grows almost the same with red Tempranillo.

Are Tempranillo Wines Good For You?

There is a lot of wine enthusiast who wants to taste red wines such as Tempranillo. Because red wines are known to be savorier than white wines. Also, there are good health benefits for your red wines. Study shows you can lower your cholesterol by drinking a glass of red wine a day like Tempranillo Wines. It's also good for your skin, regulating your blood sugar, improving your brain, and reducing the risk of cancer. Drinking red wine can also help fitness enthusiasts to make you slim. So drinking Tempranillo wines in so many ways is good for you.

Octubre CyberSecMonth: nuestro Equipo de Ciberseguridad imparable

 Cache   

Este mes de la ciberseguridad ha batido récords este año, celebrándose numerosos eventos por toda Europa. Tecnalia ha participado en muchos y tenido un papel protagonista en varios de ellos.

Comenzamos la ruta ya a finales de septiembre con el madrugador XIII Congreso Internacional de Ciberseguridad Industrial en Europa organizado por el CCI, Centro de Ciberseguridad Industrial en Madrid. Participamos con un stand y una conferencia impartida por nuestra compañera de Trustech, Maite Álvarez, titulada: “Protección de Redes OT mediante Tecnología Blockchain”.

De vuelta, Oscar Lage participo en el Congreso de Privacidad de Bilbao invitado por Wolters Kluver a formar parte de la mesa redonda sobre los aspectos tecnológicos y la ciberseguridad en las políticas de privacidad.

Como queríamos dejarnos ver por Europa, aprovechamos la invitación del Gobierno Vasco para participar en el Stand de la SPRI en IT-SA2019: The IT Security Expo and Congress, uno de las dos mayores Congresos en Ciberseguridad de Europa. Cogimos las maletas dirección Nüremberg y compartimos stand con start-ups vascas, representantes del nodo de ciberseguridad del Basque Digital Innovation Hub, y el responsable de este, el BCSC, Basque Cybersecurity Center. Pero lejos de quedarnos sólo en el stand, la directora de TrusTech, Ana Ayerbe, impartió una ponencia sobre cómo Internet de las Cosas permite a las máquinas conectarse directamente con otros e incluso realizar transacciones entre ellas.

Era ya 21 de octubre, cuando 5 compañeros cogíamos el tren destino León. INCIBE nos había seleccionado dentro de las numerosas solicitudes enviadas, para participar en 13 “ENISE: Ciberseguridad en la industria conectada” con 4 talleres y asignado también un stand demo para uno de nuestros activos ¡pleno! Creedme que estuvimos muy muy presentes. Los talleres trataron sobre: Smart Cities, Vehículo Conectado, Robótica y un taller sobre los pilotos de ciberseguridad en Europa. Nuestros compañeros Estibaliz Amparan (que hizo doblete), Cristina Martínez y Ana Ayerbe fueron los encargados de impartirlos. Mientras Sergio Anguita era el encargado de la demo: Blockchain IDS para entornos industriales.

Lejos de relajarnos, ya estamos preparándonos para el Basque Industry 4.0. The Meeting Point 2019, donde este año la ciberseguridad tiene un papel muy importante y lo alarga a dos días. Pero, los detalles de nuestra participación los dejamos para el próximo post.

Global Climate Protests Ahead of Madrid Meeting

 Cache   
Protesters in cities across the world staged rallies Friday demanding leaders take tougher action against climate change, days before the latest global conference, which this year takes place in Madrid. Photo by Li-An Lim on Unsplash

BERLIN (AP) — Protesters in cities across the world staged rallies Friday demanding leaders take tougher action against climate change, days before the latest global conference, which this year takes place in Madrid.

The rallies kicked off in Australia, where people affected by recent devastating wildfires joined young environmentalists protesting against the government’s pro-coal stance.

Janet Reynolds said she had come to the rally in Sydney after losing everything in an “inferno, an absolute firestorm that raced through my property.”

“It's so unnatural that I started investigating, reading science and really exploring what's happening with climate change,” she told Australian television.

Student Daisy Jeffrey said protesters had come to help raise money for those affected by the fires and to demand action from the government

“People have lost their homes, people have lost their lives. We have to ask: How far does this have to go before our government finally takes action," she said.

Teenage activist Greta Thunberg, who is traveling across the Atlantic by sailboat to attend the climate talks, sent a message of support to protesters. “Everyone’s needed. Everyone’s welcome. Join us,” she said on Twitter.

Since starting her one-woman “climate strikes” in Sweden more than a year ago, Thunberg has drawn a huge following around the world and inspired thousands more students to regularly skip school on Fridays and join climate protests.

Further rallies took place in Germany, South Korea, Poland, England, Turkey, Italy, Spain and France — where environmental protesters took a swipe at Black Friday.

In Berlin, about two dozen environmental activists jumped into the chilly waters of the Spree river in front of parliament to protest a government-backed package of measures they say won’t be enough to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. The package was blocked Friday by Germany’s upper house, which represents the country’s 16 states.

Later, tens of thousands of students rallied in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

“The generations before us messed it up,” said 17-year-old Robin Ebelt. “And we’re the ones that will feel the consequences. I would like to spend another 60 years on this planet, grow old and have grandchildren.”

Quang Paasch of the activist group Fridays for Future said governments attending next week’s annual climate conference should keep in mind the goals of the 2015 Paris accord, which set a target of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit). “We need to keep taking to the streets, we need to defend Paris.”

In South Africa, a few dozen people holdings signs saying “Not Cool” and “Stop Pollution Now” protested outside the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in the summer heat of the Southern Hemisphere.

One protester lay on the ground faking death, holding a sign saying “Black Friday Reason to Grieve.”

Africa contributes least to climate change and is the least prepared to deal with it. Temperatures in parts of the continent are projected to rise more quickly than the global average.

“The reality is that we have a climate change emergency,” protest organizer Elana Azrai said. She noted water shortages in parts of the country amid a drought in southern Africa.

Elsewhere, officials have raised the alarm over unusually severe rainfall in East Africa and a pair of cyclones that ripped into Mozambique within weeks of each other early this year.

Scores of young Nigerians marched in downtown Lagos displaying messages such as “There is no planet B” and “Stop Denying the Earth is Dying” as passing vehicles slowed and honked in support.

The megacity is Africa’s most populous and is among its coastal cities threatened by rising sea levels.

Análisis de Civilization VI: el 4x por excelencia también es una auténtica gozada con un mando en las manos

Análisis de Civilization VI: el 4x por excelencia también es una auténtica gozada con un mando en las manos

Siempre he visto en la saga Civilization el juego de mesa virtual perfecto. Los escenarios hexagonales ayudan, pero el hecho de crear tus propias partidas y disfrutarlas dependiendo de a qué profundidad quieres apuntar en cada momento lo convierten en el pasatiempo perfecto.

Ahora, no por primera vez pero sí con la opción más fiel al original, la franquicia 4x por excelencia llega a consolas con Civilization VI y un cambio en el esquema de control excelente. Con ello, el juego de mesa virtual por excelencia abandona la mesa del ordenador para asaltar la mesita del café.

Las claves de Civilization VI

Para aquellos que aún no le han dado una oportunidad a la saga, estamos ante un juego de estrategia que invita a seguir la máxima del género creando ciudades, explorando nuestro alrededor para buscar nuevas zonas en las que asentarnos, aprovechando los recursos que nos rodean y, ya sea por la vía diplomática o militar, imponiéndonos a nuestros rivales del mapa.

Civ01

La gran particularidad de la saga, más acentuada aún en esta sexta entrega que aterrizó en PC a finales de 2016, es que todas esas acciones tienen un extra de profundidad que lo convierten en un juego mucho más complejo de lo que podría parecer a simple vista. Nada que ver con ese aspecto desenfadado y cartoon de escenarios y personajes.

Crear y mantener una ciudad, por ejemplo, implica mantener un curso político y religioso que mantenga contento al pueblo y nos permita aprovechar los beneficios pasivos de cada decisión. Además su creación se realiza en base a distritos que potencian cada una de las ramas necesarias para la evolución de tu pueblo, desde la ciencia y la cultura hasta la fe o el entretenimiento.

Con esa misma máxima el explorar nuevas zonas para asentarnos requiere tener un control del territorio (especialmente con la expansión Gathering Storm para evitar desastres naturales que se puedan producir, por ejemplo el curso creciente de un río), los recursos a explotar no se limitan siempre al clásico combo de madera, piedra y comida, sino que también se vale de objetos de lujo que nos permitirán comerciar y la política respecto a nuestros rivales puede dar un vuelco al menor despiste.

Eso sí, afortunadamente para aquellos que vengan de los primeros meses de Civilization VI, todos los errores en lo que a IA volviéndose loca se refiere han sido más que solventados. Ahora sólo toca disfrutar del juego, ya sea creando nuestra propia partida, eligiendo la opción aleatoria o superando alguno de los escenarios que nos plantea el juego, desde asentamientos vikingos hasta conflictos en plena Gran Guerra.

El salto de PC a consolas

Con una base tan sólida como la del original, aquí los únicos cambios entre versiones se limitan al salto más lógico y, por ende, también el más complejo. Cambiar la agilidad de un teclado y ratón por la limitación de un mando no es tarea fácil, pero kudos para Firaxis Games por el espectacular trabajo que han realizado en la adaptación.

Civ02

Con los botones superiores (LB+RB o L1+R1) para desplegar menús de información lateral, el resto de botones y controles quedan relegados a gestionar cada una de las acciones. Es, evidentemente, un sistema más lento que el de PC, pero las acciones básicas siempre están al alcance de un botón y la sensación que se mantiene durante el transcurso de toda una partida siempre es la misma: comodidad.

Además el juego hace un gran trabajo con un tutorial que asienta las bases del control y, si así lo deseas, tu primera partida puede partir de distintos niveles de información en base a si no has jugado nunca a un Civilization, si no has probado la sexta entrega o, por supuesto, si tienes todo más que controlado y no quieres ir cogido de la mano.

Un grandísimo trabajo en adaptación que, lamentablemente, queda empañado por una decisión comercial poco lógica para un juego con tres años a sus espaldas. El hecho de tener que adquirir las expansiones por separado resulta mucho menos atractivo que si pudieses disponer de ellas con el juego base y, aunque con el juego principal tienes un pozo de horas casi inagotable por delante, en este tipo de propuestas el “más” siempre suele ir acompañado de un “mejor”.

Civ03

La falta de novedades realmente destacables impedirá que los fans de la franquicia que ya han pasado por la sexta entrega vean aquí una oportunidad para volver a ella, pero se entiende que la estrategia detrás de este movimiento está más enfocada a perseguir nuevos fieles que a explotar los que ya posee.

La opinión de VidaExtra

Con un trabajo de adaptación fantástico, olvidarse del ratón en pos de la comodidad del sofá es una idea muy sugerente. Una en la que sólo el no disponer de una gran pantalla para leer de forma cómoda, o la falta de novedades e integración de las expansiones, emborronan un poco la experiencia.

Pese a ello la llegada de Civilization VI es casi todo lo que podría pedírsele a un movimiento así. Un juego que ya demostró su potencial hace tres años de forma indudable y que ahora lo traslada al control con mando sin ningún tipo de asperezas. Una opción brutalmente adictiva que muy probablemente se convierta en tu nuevo pozo sin fondo.

Shelley Morrison, Will and Grace actor, dies aged 83

 Cache   

Tributes paid to the actor who played Rosario Salazar in the US sitcom between 1999 and 2006

Shelley Morrison, best known for her role as maid Rosario Salazar in the US comedy Will and Grace, has died at the age of 83 from heart failure following a short illness.

Born to Sephardic Jewish parents who emigrated to the US from Spain, Morrison appeared in 68 episodes of the pioneering LGBT comedy between 1999 and 2006. While Morrison was reportedly only meant to be in the programme for a single episode, Salazar proved so popular that she ended up appearing in eight seasons. Morrison reprised her role in a 2016 election webisode in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, though she did not return for the reboot in 2017.

Innovating in University Teaching Through Classroom Interaction

 Cache   
Innovating in University Teaching Through Classroom Interaction Álvarez Álvarez, María del Carmen; Sánchez Ruiz, Lidia; Ruthven, Andrea Robin; Montoya del Corte, Javier ABSTRACT: Previous research has shown that the best educational practices are built on the basis of interaction in the classrooms, regardless of their level. However, the dialogue among the students themselves and between them and the teacher is still more scarce than desirable, especially in the university context. Taking this weakness into account, the authors of this contribution propose a Teaching Innovation Project (TIP) as a means of confronting the reality of this matter and advancing in it through an interdisciplinary collaboration involving 16 teachers, who participate as external observers, representing all the Faculties from the University of Cantabria (Spain). Here, we present the design of the TIP that we are currently developing, the working methodology and an advance of the first partial results. Specifically, each of the 16 people involved in this TIP will externally evaluate 6 teachers from their own field of knowledge. The aim is to identify varied interaction practices throughout the university. To develop this process we have designed three observation scales: one for students, another for the teacher in action and a third for the external observer. Data will be collected between October 2018 and May 2019. The ultimate goal is to promote innovation in university teaching through interaction in the classroom in order to achieve the active learning of the students. We hope to contribute to inspire other universities that may be interested in following our steps.

Port St. Maarten becomes first Caribbean member of IPCSA

 Cache   

PORT ST. MAARTEN – Port St. Maarten was unanimously accepted as the latest member of the International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA), and is also the first port in the Caribbean to become a member of the association that promotes the adoption of e-logistics as the key element in the development of international maritime, shipping and logistics sectors. 

IPCSA is the successor to the European Port Community Systems Association (ECPSA) which was launched in June 2011 by six founding members, all European-based Port Community System operators.

IPCSA and its members play a vital role in global trade facilitation; the electronic communications platforms provided by Port Community Systems ensuring a smooth transport and logistics operations at hundreds of seaports, airports and inland ports.

EPCSA was originally formed in June 2011 by SOGET, Le Havre, France; MCP, Felixstowe, UK; Portic, Barcelona, Spain; Portbase, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, Netherlands, dbh, Bremen, Germany and DAKOSY, Germany. 

The reason for forming EPCSA was that Port Community System Operators (PCSOs) did not had a common lobby position at the European Union. The European Commission was, and still is, developing a number of initiatives and directives such as e-customs, e-freight and e-maritime and the leading PCSOs agreed that they needed work together in areas of common interest.

On 1st September 2014 the association changed from a European to an International association to better reflect its growing membership which already included members from Ukraine, Israel and Australia.

Port St. Maarten Management said on Monday: “We have been working diligently to introduce our own Port Community System (PCS) that would enhance cargo handling for stakeholders and customers. The PCS involves data-sharing among stakeholders and third parties covering cargo and cruise operations at the country’s seaport of entry.

“We are very pleased that we are the first Caribbean port to become a member of this international organization.  We look forward to being an integral part of this community as we now embark on a new way of doing business through our port community system environment.  Being able to share best practices and learning from other likeminded destinations/organizations are key to our continued growth and forward-thinking mindset.

“Port St. Maarten is at the forefront of digitalization.  It is part of the port’s long-term strategic approach in digitization planning and building a more inclusive data center platform.  The port’s PCS is also in line with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic (FAL) which allows the shipping process to move more quickly, more easily and more efficiently.” 

PCS is an extension of Port St. Maarten’s Terminal Operating System that would further enhance the port’s operational excellence platform linking for example cargo/container manifest to an incoming/outgoing vessel to warehouse/storage handling and receiver pick-up.

18 Wind and Solar Markets to Watch in 2020

 Cache   

The world’s total renewable power capacity will grow 50 percent between 2019 and 2024, according to the International Energy Agency. For investors keen to tap into this growth, mostly driven by solar and wind, the question is where to look.

To find out, GTM asked a range of industry experts and insiders for their recommendations on wind and solar markets to watch in 2020. We ignored those markets that already made the list last year.

What follows is a smattering of mature markets returning to form and some that are brand-new.

Without further ado, and in alphabetical order...

Australia: Wind

We listed Australia as a solar market to watch last year, and the country remains one of the more interesting places to invest in PV. But it’s also a big deal for wind power, said Karin Ohlenforst, director of market intelligence at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Even though the country’s large-scale renewable energy target has been reached, she said, “the fundamentals for wind are so good a market of up to 2 gigawatts is expected by 2020.” 

Brazil: Wind

Brazil is another maturing renewable energy market where GWEC sees ongoing opportunities for wind in 2020. The wind industry group expects growth in Brazilian installations, along with those in Argentina and Chile, that will come from the execution of auctioned capacity and growing opportunities for bilateral power-purchase agreements. 

Chile: Solar and wind

Chile has long been seen as one of Latin America’s strongest markets for renewables, and the country continues to attract investment from solar developers such as Spain's Solarpack. “Opportunities can still arise for new solar capacity” in the country, said Solarpack’s CEO, Pablo Burgos, although it remains to be seen whether investor confidence might be dented by the anti-government protests that erupted in October. 

China: Solar and wind

China is hardly a new market for wind and solar, but the offshore wind market “is expected to almost double [in 2020] compared to 2019,” said Rolf Kragelund, director for global offshore wind at Wood Mackenzie. GWEC estimates the offshore wind market could hit 4 gigawatts of capacity. Turning to PV, Wood Mackenzie believes a subsidy-free project pipeline could add 9 gigawatts of capacity to the grid in 2020. 

Ethiopia: Solar

Ethiopia’s hydro-heavy generation mix means the country already has enviable levels of clean energy on the grid. The trouble is that most of the country's residents aren’t on the grid, which is why Ethiopia is looking to boost solar development, said Global Green Growth Institute Director General Frank Rijsberman. “You can put solar on the rooftops, and [then have] mini grids and smaller independent systems” sited in rural areas, Rijsberman said. “Small...utility-scale solar that can deal with secondary cities and so on: That, I think, is the future.”

Greece: Solar

Greece is one of several European markets that Solarpack's Burgos is keeping an eye on in 2020. Renewables investment could benefit from the Greek administration’s decision to phase out coal generation by 2028, announced in September. “Greece is the only country in Southeast Europe to have announced a coal phaseout date,” noted advocacy group Europe Beyond Coal in a press statement. “Details of the strategy to achieve the target will be announced by the end of 2019."

Hungary: Solar

Like Greece, Hungary in Eastern Europe has announced plans to abandon coal, with a switch-off date of 2030. In November, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority launched the nation’s first renewable energy auction, giving clarity to the future project pipeline. Burgos said Hungary is now among the European markets “putting solar schemes at the forefront of their renewable energy commitments.”

India: Solar

India’s massive and multifaceted solar market continues to deliver opportunities for investors, with Wood Mackenzie’s Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook reporting on “auction activity starting to pick up now that [the] election period is over.” Long-term solar growth in the country is likely to be buoyed by a government target of 500 gigawatts of renewable generation by 2030.

Indonesia: Solar

With its vast population and 6,000 or so inhabited islands, Indonesia harbors massive potential for solar developers. So far, progress has been sluggish, with a rooftop net metering scheme failing to stimulate interest. However, lawmakers changed the rules for rooftop PV in October, potentially paving the way for increased growth. Indonesia only had around 60 megawatts of solar installed at the end of last year but plans to boost capacity to 6.5 gigawatts by 2025.

Netherlands: Solar

Although relatively mature, the Dutch solar market still has plenty of room for near-term growth, with 5 gigawatts of capacity expected to be installed between 2019 and 2020. Despite the country’s low irradiance, its "support mechanisms, in the form of feed-in tariffs and tax incentives, help to boost solar” there, said Burgos.  

New Zealand: Wind

Wood Mackenzie’s wind power outlook for Asia-Pacific gained a lift from an unusual source in September. The analyst firm reported that contract wins in New Zealand would “boost an otherwise dormant market” in Asia-Pacific. Just two large projects, Waipipi and Turitea, added 252 megawatts of capacity to New Zealand’s wind industry pipeline this year. The question now is whether that momentum will be sustained in 2020. 

Oman: Solar

Middle Eastern markets remain a magnet for PV developers thanks to their excellent solar resource, growing energy needs and often favorable regulation. In its Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook, Wood Mackenzie singled out Oman for special treatment. “Competitive state tenders continue to be launched at a fast clip, including 1,100 megawatts of new project sites at Manah,” WoodMac said.

Poland: Solar

GTM highlighted Poland’s growing wind potential last year. Despite previous setbacks, the country now seems earnest in wanting to foster renewables, with offshore wind in particular looking to benefit. Solar developers are keen to grab a piece of the action, too. Burgos said the Polish solar market had much in common with Hungary. Both states “have committed to reduce their carbon footprint and both are supporting PV with feed-in tariff models,” he said.

South Africa: Wind

South Africa’s once-vibrant renewable energy market has had a rocky few years courtesy of Eskom, the nation’s beleaguered electricity behemoth. But with the too-big-to-fail state utility slowly getting its affairs back under control, the picture for wind is improving, said Ohlenforst. “After two years of pausing, installations are [set] to pick up again in 2020,” she predicted, with the market poised to top 700 megawatts next year.

South Korea: Wind and solar

South Korea “would like to scale up” on renewables, said Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute. “They have the money [and] the government has the targets.” The problem for developers is finding affordable land in the crowded country, he said. This is hampering efforts to scale up solar development and increasingly putting the focus on offshore wind as a major contributor to South Korea’s clean energy plans.

Ukraine: Solar

Last year the Ukraine was enthusiastically hyped as a wind destination. And in October the market delivered with the announcement of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, a 750-megawatt monster in the southeast of the country. The country’s PV market, which is now approaching 3 gigawatts of capacity, also remains buoyant despite moves to replace feed-in tariffs with an auction system. Developers such as Solarpack and Scatec Solar are eyeing the market, with the latter installing its first Ukrainian plant in August.

U.S.: Wind and solar

Even as the renewables industry waits to see if there will be an extension to the supporting federal tax credits, developers are bullish about the U.S. market. In the immediate term, the country is in the middle of its biggest-ever build-out of onshore wind capacity, and the offshore market is taking off as East Coast states increase their targets.

Vietnam: Wind

The end of a generous feed-in tariff in June this year saw developers rushing to connect almost 4.5 gigawatts of PV capacity to the grid in a matter of months. Now that the solar rush is over, the government is looking to repeat the trick with wind, also offering enticing incentives, said Rijsberman. “A lot of companies are now doing the same thing for wind in Vietnam as they were doing for large-scale solar,” he said. “What hasn’t really happened yet is rooftop solar, partly because the regulation doesn’t favor it.”


          

Enel to Build 14GW of Renewables by 2022 as Decarbonization Race Heats Up

 Cache   
European utility giant Enel has committed half of its total investment over the next few years to decarbonization, part of a new strategic plan revealed on Tuesday.
 
Between 2020 and 2022, the Italian group will invest €11.5 billion ($12.6 billion) in additional renewable capacity, which it expects to equate to another 14.1 gigawatts of assets by the end that period, building on its existing 46-gigawatt renewables fleet, a large chunk of which is hydroelectric capacity.
 
The planned investment into renewables is broken into three groups. The replacement of fossil fuel generation in Spain, Italy and Chile will account for 5.4 gigawatts. Another 5.1 gigawatts will be developed in Brazil and the U.S. to fulfill power-purchase agreements, many with commercial and industrial customers. And 3.6 gigawatts will be developed in new and emerging markets for the company.
 
According to Enel, 60 percent of this new capacity is “secured” with the remainder to be drawn from its 20-gigawatt pipeline.
 
Enel's coal capacity will be reduced 61 percent during the period.
 
Meanwhile, Enel will invest another €13 billion in grid infrastructure and enabling technology such as digitalization, automation and resilience. The firm’s energy transitions venture, Enel X, will add more than 300 megawatts of energy storage capacity and another 4 gigawatts of demand response resources.
 
Enel distributes power to 73 million customers and has 71 million of its own retail customers. Its smart meter fleet now totals 45 million units.

Bottom line just fine

Enel declared a major strategic shift in 2015 when it set out to focus on renewable power generation. Since then it has added 3 gigawatts a year to its portfolio on average. Tellingly, it has seen its value soar during the same period.
 
The company's share price is up 90 percent since 2015, and its shareholder dividend has doubled. 
 
"The plan that we are presenting today underscores the success of the sustainable and integrated business model that we have deployed since 2015, targeting the opportunities in the power sector connected with the global decarbonization and electrification trends," said Enel CEO Francesco Starace in a statement.
 
"Thanks to this approach, Enel is now a more sustainable, efficient and profitable organization, with a substantially lower risk profile and a greater capability to rapidly adapt to change," Starace said.
 
In 2018, Enel's Ebitda was €16.4 billion, projected to rise to €20.1 billion in 2022.
 
Many of Europe’s utilities and network operators are laying the foundations for decarbonized grids at a faster rate than policy dictates. The U.K. is targeting a net-zero-carbon economy by 2050 while electricity system operator National Grid is on track to have all the tools at its disposal to support a zero-carbon network from 2025 onward.
 
Germany’s RWE became one of the largest renewable energy power producers in Europe following an asset swap with rival E.On. Credit ratings agency Fitch said the move meant it would derive a greater proportion of its income from renewables, which would improve the firm’s credit rating.
 
Germany itself has one of the longest coal phaseout timelines in Europe, with an end date of 2038.

From anti to alter-globalization

By the end of the 1980s, various cracks began to appear in the global neoliberal edifice. Partially, they were triggered by early crises that erupted in Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, and Russia, among other countries. The impact of the so-called Washington consensus was making itself felt in the form of massive cuts to public services and jobs and financial shifts that allowed big finance to profit from public and private debt, in addition to privatization and deregulation that put trade unions and other social movements on the defensive. The various fragmented revolts in the 80s were a harbinger of what was to come.

Origins

At the beginning of 1994, the little known southern province of Mexico gained international attention. In Chiapas, the peasant-indigenous population took to the streets under the banner of the Zapatista Liberation Army (EZLN). It was a big surprise, even to the Mexican state, which was taken aback by the scale of the protest and the fact that it was widely supported, even outside Chiapas. The EZLN adopted a new language that distinguished it from earlier liberation movements, emphasizing a non-statist view, local autonomy and non-hierarchical structures. This discourse gained currency worldwide through emerging social media and annual conferences held in the jungles of Chiapas. At the same time, huge protest marches were organized all over Europe and North America against the World Bank, the IMF and WTO, which encountered an exceptionally large gathering of angry protestors at its meeting in Seattle in the fall of 1998. The “Battle of Seattle” was unique in the sense that it brought together a wide variety of social movements, from teamsters (trade unions) to “turtles” (environmental campaigns). In the Americas, north and south, this inaugurated a series of struggles that led to the massive People’s Summit in Québec City in 2001.

The ascending phase

This was not yet a movement, but rather a vast tapestry of initiatives in opposition to neoliberal globalization. These struggles revitalized a number of left-wing think-tanks, publications and organizations in the North. In South America, meanwhile, mass pro-democracy movements were offering real resistance to authoritarian regimes. Coalitions in Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and later Bolivia and Ecuador came together with a strong grass-roots push and by the beginning of the new millennium, Pink Tide governments were established in many countries. It was during this turbulent phase that movements from the Global North, inspired by developments in the Global South, conceived the idea of creating a platform to recharge policy debates and explore the contours of new visions of social transformation. This laid the groundwork for the World Social Forum. Brazilian-led, the WSF had no clear and explicit strategy, but there was a consensus around the need to build a new framework of analysis. For several years after the founding event, hundreds of thousands of movements and people met in Brazil, and later in India, Mali, Tunisia, Kenya and many other countries, with the aim of developing an alter-globalization perspective.

The WSF process was original because it was an open space where participants themselves were to define the agenda through self-organized political and cultural activities. Much of the work involved drafting an alternative economic program based on the revitalization of the public sector, the decommodification of basic goods and services, new fiscal and financial mechanisms to push back inequalities, local non-market enterprises and the like. At the same time, there was much discussion of how to “democratize democracy,” how to struggle against gender, generational and ethnic discrimination, and how to change the rules of the game to wrest space and opportunities for meaningful citizen participation within the framework of liberal democracy. These immense brainstorming sessions were carried out by many social movements that also took advantage of the WSF to create new international and action-oriented networks, such as Via Campesina and the World March of Women. The WSF methodology was also adopted by hundreds of national and municipal forums in which citizens had a chance to act, play, speak out and express their hopes. It thus helped to bring movements together, create new dynamics and give rise to new projects. One such successful forum was organized in Ottawa in 2012. The Peoples’ Social Forum brought together a critical mass of movements from Canada, Québec and Indigenous communities for the first time in Canadian history.

In its ascending phase, alterglobalization was at once a rallying point for social movements, a political program for the most advanced progressive parties, a living laboratory involving millions of professors, students, intellectuals and artists. It also benefited from concrete support by Pink Tide governments, and particularly Brazil and Venezuela.

Uncertain times

In 2008, global capitalism suffered its most severe crisis since 1929. It shook the Global North first, and within a few years mass mobilizations erupted under the banner of Occupy Wall Street (in Canada and the United States), the Indignados (in Spain and other southern European countries) before crossing the Mediterranean in a historic movement that led to the implosion of long-standing dictatorships, mainly in Egypt and Tunisia. In many ways, these diverse movements all travelled the paths opened up in South America and through the WSF. Unlike in South America, however, they did not have a political counterpart and in the absence of either a European or Maghreb-Mackrek pink tide, the revolts did not succeed in reversing the trends. The countries of the Global North were thus able to steady themselves without too much effort, and the countries of the Global South fell into the grip of resuscitated dictatorship (with the exception of Tunisia). Even where social movements grew strong (in Spain and Greece, for example), the edifice of power was able to withstand the challenge by a combination of local/national reactionary offensives, on the one hand, and international intervention by undemocratic neoliberal institutions, on the other. This counteroffensive also led to the demise of many pink-tide countries – Brazil and Venezuela in particular – which were unable to resist the reactionary assaults in addition to being weakened by their own limitations and contradictions. The World Social Forum was deeply affected by this new and debilitating correlation of forces. The traditional South American leadership of the WSF was blindsided by growing divisions between movements and between movements and pink-tide governments. The WSF in Tunis (2015), Montreal (2016) and Salvador de Bahia (2018) were interesting events, but they lacked the energy and enthusiasm of the past, falling into a bit of a rut rather than innovating and exploring new avenues.

Looking ahead

Although the historic alterglobalization moment has now passed, its ideas and achievements continue to inspire and we can detect its legacy in new forms of resistance. In many countries, admittedly, popular movements are on the defensive and social-democratic reforms are being repealed, while new forms of authoritarianism or “austeritarism” are being imposed. Yet if we look at the situation through a wide-angle lens, we can see expanding cracks in the system, with uprisings multiplying, as in China (Hong Kong), Chile, Sudan, Lebanon, Iraq, Argentina, Algeria, and Columbia. In many more countries, we are seeing ripples that portend big transformative waves. Social movements in many places have become more astute, employing new decentralized strategies. Many have taken the battle for Pachamama to the next level, announcing loudly and clearly that the problem, as Naomi Klein stresses, is not the climate but capitalism. At the same time, an international conversation continues via new forms of networking, such as the Great Transition conference (Montreal, May 2020), the World Social Forum on Transformative Economics (Barcelona, June 2020), the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Quito, January 2020), among many other events and developments. It is still too early, however, to hail the rise of an Alterglobalization 2.0.

Who is reinventing the left?

In the meantime, many left-wing political parties are evolving, scrapping the legacy of past sectarianism, as we have seen, for instance, in the United States (Democratic Socialists of America), Quebec (Québec Solidaire), Chile (Frente Amplio), and England (Momentum). The dark clouds of militarism, racism and fascism are looming everywhere, as evidenced most recently in Bolivia. But in all these places, the power struggles are complex, not predetermined, allowing creative movements to regroup, transcend their past experiences and invent new forms of political and social mobilization. Much more than in past, women, youth and marginalized communities are taking the lead. It is most probably an “interregnum,” to use Gramsci’s phrase, between the black hole of mass destruction and the hope for emancipation.

Eto'o aims to use studies to 'give back to Africa'

 Cache   

African football legend Samuel Eto'o says he wants to use his business management studies at Harvard Business School in the USA to give back to Africa.

The four-time African Player of the Year winner announced his retirement from football at the age of 38 in September.

Eto'o believes crossing the Atlantic Ocean to the United States for business education will help his quest to give back to the continent.

"I want to help and to make my positive contribution to the transformation of our continent," Eto'o told French news website Jeune Afrique.

"When you're a footballer, you pay people to take care of your career and things generally.

"But when it's up to you to manage people, and you want to develop them, you practically need to learn new skills.

The ex-Cameroon and Barcelona forward, who remains his country's record scorer with 56 goals in 118 games, confirmed his decision to study for life after football.

"In January I will start a business management studies at Harvard University after they kindly accepted me for a specialised training," he explained.

"I will live in Boston for almost a year for this. It won't be easy, but it's a nice challenge and you know I always love to challenge myself."

Eto'o had a trophy-laden professional career in Spain and Italy, but enjoyed much of his club success at Barcelona, where he played from 2004 to 2009.

His trophies with the Catalan club included three La Liga crowns and two European Champions League titles.

He also won the Champions League, under Jose Mourinho, at Inter Milan in 2010, and has an Olympic gold medal, which he won with Cameroon in 2000.

Eto'o whose career also include spells in Russia, Turkey and Qatar is the leading all-time scorer in the Nations Cup with 18 goals.

He appeared at four World Cup finals with the Indomitable Lions - 1998, 2002, 2010 and 2014 - playing in eight matches and scoring three goals.

The striker also won back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations titles with his country at the 2000 and 2002 editions.

Ισπανία: Παίκτρια του Big Brother βιάστηκε μέσα στο σπίτι και μετά της έδειξαν το βίντεο
02/12/2019 - 14:58

Σοκ και ανατριχίλα προκαλούν τα όσα συνέβησαν στο σπίτι του πασίγνωστου ριάλιτι «Big Brother» στην Ισπανία.

Σύμφωνα με την Telegraph, ένας διαγωνιζόμενος φέρεται να βίασε συμπαίκτρια του, με την παραγωγή να μην κάνει τίποτα ώστε να σταματήσει το τραγικό περιστατικό.

Αντιθέτως, το άφησε τόσο ώστε να εξασφαλίσει κάποια πλάνα και έπειτα έδειξε το βίντεο στη νεαρή κοπέλα χωρίς την παρουσία ψυχολόγου.

Η νεαρή Καρλότα Πράντο βρέθηκε στο δωμάτιο επικοινωνίας, όπου την έβαλαν να παρακολουθήσει ένα βίντεο και βρέθηκε να βλέπει τον βιασμό της, ούσα αναίσθητη από το ποτό.

«Σε παρακαλώ, Μεγάλε, σταμάτα», ακούγεται να λέει ξεσπώντας σε κλάματα. Αλλά το βίντεο εξακολουθούσε να παίζει και η φωνή του «Μεγάλου Αδελφού» ακούγεται να λέει «Νομίζουμε ότι πρέπει να το δεις αυτό Καρλότα».

Η σκηνή δεν παίχτηκε ποτέ στον αέρα αλλά διέρρευσε στον ισπανικό Τύπο αυτή την εβδομάδα.

Μέχρι που της ζητήθηκε να μπει στο δωμάτιο επικοινωνίας, η Καρλότα δεν είχε ιδέα τι είχε συμβεί το προηγούμενο βράδυ, καθώς την έβαλε να ξαπλώσει, ο Χοσέ Μαρία Λόπες, με τον οποίο μάλιστα είχε αρχίσει να συνάπτει ερωτική σχέση.

Στο βίντεο του βιασμού, η κοπέλα λέει «όχι, δεν μπορώ» στον Λόπες αλλά μετά βρίσκονται στο κρεβάτι, μέχρι να ακουστεί από τα μεγάφωνα η παραγωγή που του ζητά να σταματήσει.
