The Pacific Community launches new information tools on sustainable fishing practices

The Pacific Community launches new information tools on sustainable fishing practices camillem Thu, 11/28/2019 - 21:23

The Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the European Union (EU) is launching today a series of animated videos targeting the fishers, the schools and the general public with the objective of raising awareness on sustainable fishing practices.

The series, called “Fisher’s Tales” aims at disseminating informative and educational toolkits amongst coastal communities from the Pacific region and includes short animated videos compatible with mass media and social networks. The videos will provide information on the habitat, nutrition and behaviour of key marine species, including sea cucumber, as well as advice on how to use these resources in a sustainable way.

The series will be adapted into local languages and disseminated across the 15 beneficiary countries* that are part of the EU-Funded Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership (PEUMP) Programme. Funded by the EU and the Government of Sweden, the EUR 45 million PEUMP programme promotes sustainable management and sound ocean governance for food security and economic growth, while addressing climate change resilience and conservation of marine biodiversity. It follows a comprehensive approach, integrating issues related to oceanic fisheries, coastal fisheries, community development, marine conservation and capacity building under one single regional action.

The Pacific Community has long been supporting its member countries in deploying Community-based Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management. This approach aims at equipping communities with technical information and advice on the fish species and habitats upon which they rely for food security and livelihoods. The overall objective is to see local communities taking a leading role in sustainable management of fisheries resources.

The Head of Cooperation at the Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific, Christoph Wagner said, “In line with the regional strategy, the New Song for Coastal Fisheries – Pathway to Change, the EU has enhanced its focus and financial commitment to support coastal fisheries management. Raising awareness on sustainable fishing practices is a crucial step to promote productive and healthy ecosystems and fish stocks that ultimately contribute to improving wellbeing of coastal communities''.

 “The Pacific Community and its partners are putting emphasis on developing information tools specifically targeting communities, in line with guidelines and policies endorsed by the Pacific-African Caribbean Pacific (Pacific-ACP) countries.” said Neville Smith, Director of the Fisheries Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems Division of the Pacific Community. 

*Pacific-ACP states that are part of the Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership (PEUMP) Programme are the Cook Islands, Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Vanuatu.

About the Pacific Community Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems Division:
The Regional Fisheries response have been part of SPC mandate for almost seventy years. The SPC Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems Division leads fisheries science and technical expertise in the Pacific region and supports the 22 Pacific Island countries and territories in oceanic fisheries, coastal fisheries and aquaculture. We are working in an area covering 28.2 million km² of ocean, with the support of over 35 international partners.

About the Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership Programme (PEUMP):
The Pacific-European Union Marine Partnership (PEUMP) Programme addresses some of the most serious challenges faced by Pacific countries. Among these are the increasing depletion of coastal fisheries resources; the threats to marine biodiversity, including negative impacts of climate change and disasters; the uneven contribution of oceanic fisheries to national economic development; the need for improved education and training; and the need to mainstream a rights-based approach and to promote greater recognition of gender issues to ensure inclusiveness and positive changes for Pacific island people.  The five-year PEUMP programme is funded by the European Union (EUR 35 million) and the government of Sweden (EUR 10 million). It is implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC), the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and the University of the South Pacific (USP) in close collaboration with Non-Government Organisations and the national authorities.

The October uprising in Iraq

November 28, 2019

Since early October, there has been a spontaneous wave of demonstrations in Iraq’s capital Baghdad and other cities against widespread corruption, unemployment and poor public services.

Green Left Weekly’s Susan Price spoke to Sydney-based Iraqi human rights activist Abeer Hasan Abdulazeez about the significance of this movement.

* * *

What has caused the protest movement in Iraq and how significant is it?

I nicknamed it the October Revolution and in Arabic language it is called intifada.

The protests started on October 1, a date which was set by civil activists on social media, spreading over the central and southern provinces of Iraq, to protest 16 years of corruption, unemployment and inefficient public services.

The protests lasted for a whole week, continuously, then stopped on October 8 and resumed on the 25th. After this day, the demands escalated into calls to overthrow the administration and stop Iranian interference in Iraq’s affairs

The Iraqi government used excessive force to suppress these demonstrations, using live bullets, snipers, hot water and tear gas against protesters. This resulted in 327 dead and over 6427 wounded, according to the latest statistics we have received.

The significance of this Intifada and what distinguishes these demonstrations, is that they did not come at the invitation of a party or political or religious groups, but were spontaneous, by young people who are not politically affiliated and from various regions of Baghdad and other provinces.

What are the people's demands?

As I explained earlier, corruption, unemployment and poor public services such as electricity, water, medical services and the absence of social security made Iraqi people struggle and suffer.

These were the primary factors that led to the intifada in its first phase. In the second phase, other demands were added for a radical change of government, including all members of parliament, as well as to change all the principles on which the Iraqi government was formed after 2003. They also added the demand for the removal of Iranian interference in Iraq's internal and external affairs and independence of the Iraqi political decision-making, to serve the interests of the Iraqi people and the region.

The Iraqi government tried to obscure the facts, distort the truth and the goal of the uprising, by accusing the demonstrators of not having clear and specific demands as well as not having leaders to represent them — so the Iraqi government could sit with them to negotiate the demands of the protesters..

The advanced political awareness among protesting youth and others made them reorganise themselves to form a group of leaders, representing the demonstrators and by states and provinces. They also reviewed all the demands of the demonstrators to make them clear, specific and uniform.

How has the United States invasion of Iraq contributed to the conditions for this uprising?

I do not think so there is a relation between these two events. Some may find that there is a strong link between the entry of US troops to Iraq in 2003 and the uprising that is occurring at present. But that is at least from my point of view.

That is because this big military operation carried out by the US in 2003 in Iraq was the reason for the removal of the former dictatorship and helped to adopt a new political system.

Unfortunately, the government that took power after 2003 with the support of the US was not able to meet the government promised to the Iraqi people, because it was occupied with political and partisan conflicts to obtain sources of power in Parliament as well as money.

On the other hand, I agree with those who say that the entry of the US into Iraq in 2003 also had negative aspects. The severe destruction that accompanied these military operations is one of them, which led to the destruction of 95% of Iraq's infrastructure, as well as the destruction of the army and its equipment in almost complete form.

Iraqis are still suffering from the effects of the destruction of its infrastructure, which not all governments since 2003 have been able to repair. The Iraqi people are still suffering from the lack of electricity, water and sewage services as well as in the areas of health and education.

The most important negative factors that emerged after the occupation of the US in Iraq is the security vacuum in the region as well as Iraq. The Iraqi border became unprotected during US military operations, which resulted in the entry by many militias who work with regional or external forces. This is what we saw through the invasion of ISIS militias into northern Iraq and the occupation of Mosul and some other areas, which required a lot of effort and money as well as sacrifice of lives to liberate these areas from ISIS by the Iraqi army.

What has been the response of the traditional parties of the left to this movement?

The reaction and response of the traditional Iraqi opposition parties were supportive of the uprising and the demands of the demonstrators, despite the difference of emphasis. Where some appeared to be trying to exploit the uprising to promote a party through the assertion and support for the demands of the demonstrators, others showed double attitudes and lack of clarity and frankness.

The general response was in favour of this uprising, supportive of its demands and belief in political reform as the radical solution to the crisis in Iraq.

All Iraqi opposition parties, as well as many parties in Arab countries, Europe, Latin America, all human rights organisations and other international parties have supported the demands of the demonstrators and condemned the use of excessive force by the Iraqi authorities, which have included the killing of many people and injuring of thousands.

The Iraqi community and other communities in a number of countries, including Australia, Germany, France, Austria, Sweden and the US are also standing in support of the rightful demands of the demonstrators and condemning the practices of power against the protesters.

What new political forces are emerging?

At the moment, there is no indication of the emergence of new political forces or ideologies.

On the contrary, all political forces in Iraq and parties are now considering and monitoring the results that will follow the intifada, to determine their stance.

Some parties have claimed support for the demonstrators and their demands, but the support by those parties is nothing but political deceit to ensure their survival in power and in the political scene.

In addition, some political forces and parties involved in the current Iraqi government think that support for the demonstrators will give them the opportunity in the future to change stances and ensure the support of the Iraqi people.

Swinging positions by some political forces, as I mentioned earlier, was a strategy to ensure they stay in the political game, whatever the outcome of this crisis.

Dual positions are only a temporary political tactic, in the event of the victory of the intifada and the fulfillment of the demands of the demonstrators — which will certainly be achieved and won.

Where do you see this movement going? Will it succeed? What are the next steps needed?

This revolution is going in the right direction, as long as the demonstrators stick to the demands and particularly, the demand for the overall change of government, parliament and the non-participation of the current parties in the upcoming elections.

The intifada will succeed, but will need more time than everybody expected, due to overlapping political interests, as well as the intervention of foreign forces that have the desire to retain the current Iraqi government in power. 

The next and important step is to mobilise more international support to pressure the Iraqi government to sit at the negotiating table and discuss the demands of the demonstrators, which represent the demands of the entire Iraqi people.

As part of the process to increase international support, we are in constant contact with most of the Iraqi community living in Australia and abroad.

Also, we are encouraging them to ask the governments of the countries in which they live to raise the issue in all international forums and to pressure the Iraqi government internationally, which will accelerate the process of political changes in Iraq.

In line with the requirements of supporting the uprising in Iraq, The Dream association is working hard with Iraqi community members to raise the issue of Iraq and explain the reasons that caused the intifada. We are succeeding in getting solidarity from other organisations and communities living in Australia, such as the Chilean community and their organisations as well as Australian organisations, including the Greens, other human rights organisations and a few members of  parliament.

The October uprising will succeed eventually, the people of Iraq will get their rights, no matter how long it takes.

How united are the forces in this movement? How important is unity?

What attracts attention about the October uprising and makes it distinctive and different from the previous uprisings in the past, is that the demonstrators are spontaneously united in all their categories and that is something that encourages optimism.

The goals of the October uprising unite the protesters and brings them together as one against the Iraqi government. Moreover, the October uprising was born from 16 years of suffering of the Iraqi people. This suffering affected all categories of the Iraqi people, except the ruling class and the rich.

The protesters' strong belief in the issues and in changing the government and its underlying principles has united them all. These principles led to sectarian division and have divided Iraqi society. It is now known to everyone that these principles and ideologies were marketed by Iran to serve Iran’s interests in Iraq and in the region, through its affiliates in the Iraqi government.

The young intellectuals, who form the largest volume in the uprising, have a great awareness of the reality of the political situation in Iraq and the changes needed to the government.

They will maintain the momentum that will push the uprising to continue until the changes are achieved and for the fulfillment of all demands.

The people of Iran are once again mobilising against the regime. Do you see this struggle as related to the struggle in Iraq? Does the Iraqi movement see itself as part of the struggles emerging in the Middle East, Chile and elsewhere?

Certainly, there is a relationship between the struggle of the Iraqi people and the Iranian people, but it is an indirect relationship and there is no cooperation between the two movements.

The two movements in Iraq and Iran suffered corrupt regimes that seized the wealth of the people.

Most of the Iranian people, especially intellectuals and youth, reject the expansionist policies of the Iranian government in the region and its interventions in the affairs of neighboring countries — such as Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen — to attempt to control them completely.

The struggle against corrupt government, unemployment and poverty of public services and for freedom, equality and justice has become the demand of all peoples who struggle across the world. Therefore, the Iraqi movement is part of struggles that are emerging in the Middle East, Chile and elsewhere — and vice versa.

The protests in Iraq, Lebanon, Chile and elsewhere are complementary, because they represent the right of all humankind to live in freedom, with dignity and justice.

The political album of the year (plus 9 others that are awesome)

Political albums from November 2019.
November 28, 2019

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


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


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


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


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


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



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


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


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


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


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

Realistic Dildo There is no magic amount of time that men are supposed to last before ejaculation. If you want the fun and pleasure to last, you just have to stop the stimulation long enough to relax, and then you can build up steam again and again. Also, I might note that a good number of men report that, after using the start and stop method while masturbating or engaging in partnered sex, their ejaculation and orgasm is greatly enhanced.

I was a little bummed that the candle I got wasn't the one I ordered, but that's not a big deal, since this one still actually smells really nice.

People who have physical and mental disabilities in our society are very rarely viewed as sexual beings. After paralyzing accidents in which patients lose the use of their lower body, they have been told by doctors, "Why are you concerned about sex? You should be glad to just be alive!"

This was not only an unethical practice, but one that also did not contribute an actual solution to the problem at hand; all people, including those who are differently abled, are sexual beings.

Carlos Allen's announcement that he was entering the race seemed like a gag at first vibrators, and his initial attempt to join the Democratic primary fell through when his petition just short of the necessary 2,000 valid signatures could not withstand a challenge. But just as Allen found a novel way into the White House (still under investigation), he's found a path onto the November ballot: as an independent candidate. Board of Elections officials confirmed Wednesday that Allen had secured a spot (the second petition he circulated had ample names and received no challenge). Realistic Dildo

Adult Toys I did however pinch my stomach in the zipper when I was trying to close it once. You shouldn't have to worry about pinching yourself if you hold it away from your body while you're closing it. The zipper also comes up and down easily so you won't have to force it, but at the same time you don't have to worry about it falling down. Adult Toys

dog dildo Any open open mouthed kissing will inevitably lead to my jaw popping, and staying popped until the kiss is over.

He urged a full inquiry to "clear his name" but was found dead four days after he was sacked. It is understood he took his own life. An inquiry will look into how Wales's First Minister Carwyn Jones handled the allegations.. This would be great as a gift for bridal showers, or bachelorette parties.

But The Man from Beijing, though not among Mankell's very best, is a winner. It grabs like super glue. Mankell is a detective of society who keenly uncovers evidence of Sweden's social ills that will resonate with Americans. This delightful gem of an album focuses on the music of emblematically Dominican bachata via the Haitian diaspora found on that side of the island. Sung in Creole and Spanish, Bachata Haiti unites guitar maestro Joan Soriano with a masterful roster of Haitian Dominican artists including Franklin Medina, "El Zorro Negro." A lovely dialogue is created between the sensual lolls of bachata's guitar twangs (this is, after all, once stigmatized music, at one time relegated to bordellos) and the tight, lilting and soulful harmonies of Haitian creole kompa music. "Ti Pouchon" reveals the endless riches of the African roots that nurtured American blues, Dominican bachata and Haitian kompa.

Yeah, boneheaded design but that circular iteration of what you're alluding to as a swastika is also a common symbol for steam engines. Additionally, the swastika predates the Nazi Party's coopting of the symbol by several thousand years. It has been seen in historical evidence dating back to ancient Mesopotamia.

Vinteroverallen. Vårt absolut mest sålda plagg i Skandinavien. Vi på Isbjörn är stolta över att ha vunnit Bäst-i-Test med det här plagget i 5 år och på sätt och vis tagit den här formen av plagg till en ny nivå. Våra overaller är en favorit i många familjer, där man upptäckt styrkan i kombinationen av slitstarkhet, ventilation och en fantastiskt värmeisolerande förmåga. Penguin är som alla våra ytterplagg tillverkade i en slitstark Nylon Taslan, som är det yttre skydd som står emot både vind och väta med ett membran på insidan av yttertyget som möjliggör att överskottsvärme ventileras ut ur plagget. Till det har vi adderat ett PrimaLoft foder, som ger fantastisk mjukhet och värmeisolering till minimal vikt. På så sätt kommer ditt barn alltid att vara torrt och lagom varmt under vintern. Oavsett väder och aktivitet. Alla sömmar är tejpade, så att vatten inte sipprar in vid närkontakt med regn eller snö. Slitstyrkan gör att plagget tål att användas varje dag utan problem och ändå bibehålla all den funktion som vi lovar dig som kund. Overallen har tillväxtmuddar i både ärmar och ben, vilket med ett enkelt ingrepp på insidan, förlänger dem med ca 3 cm och möjliggör att plagget kan användas ytterligare en säsong. Rekommenderas att användas varje dag i förskola och skola samt på vintersemestern för de mindre barnen. Ett av våra mest omtyckta plagg i vår kollektion.


Våra handskar är ett kapitel för sig. Vi anser nämligen att detaljer är viktigt. Speciellt när du vistas i ute i naturen – på riktigt. Handskarna är framtagna i samma fantastiska material som resten av vår kollektion. Vår Ski Mitten är en skidhandske som riktar sig till barn från 7-8 år och uppåt. Den har en skön innerhandske med fingrar, som gör att det känns som om handsken egentligen är en fingerhandske. Bara lite varmare. Inga kompromisser.

ISBJÖRN Winterglove Finger Kids

Handskarna är framtagna i samma fantastiska material som resten av vår kollektion. Vår Kids Glove är framtagen för barnen som blivit lite större i förskolan eller börjat skolan. Där det är viktigt med en handske som effektivt skyddar för kyla och väta, är skön och smidig samt greppvänlig, för att inte störa leken. Det är en smaksak om man föredrar fingerhandske eller påsvante, som det populärt kallas. Vi erbjuder både ock till den här ålderskategorin. Både med samma fina material och prestanda. Inga kompromisser.

Vår Baby mitten är framtagen för de minsta barnen, där det är viktigt att man enkelt kan få in tummen i handsken och att den är skön och smidig, greppvänlig samt håller väta och kyla borta.

Våra handskar är ett kapitel för sig. Vi anser nämligen att detaljer är viktigt. Speciellt när du vistas i ute i naturen – på riktigt. Handskarna är framtagna i samma fantastiska material som resten av vår kollektion. Vår Expedition Glove är en riktigt avancerad handske för de större barnen, med funktioner som ski-pass ficka på ovansidan av handsken. Vi har inte sparat varken på komfort eller detaljer på den här modellen. Det här är en handske som levererar. Inga kompromisser.


Vår Panda Beanie har en god chans att hamna överst på listan av favoritmössor. Det är den där mössan som passar vid alla tillfällen på något sätt. Den är varm men har samtidigt de fina egenskaperna av PrimaLoft materialet, som gör att den effektivt ventilerar ut överskottsvärme. Vi har valt att göra den i samma fina färger som vår Panda Hoodie. Lite som karameller i en godisskål.


Den här mössan är vår klassiker. En perfekt kompis på förskolan och i skolan. Den tillverkas i en slitstark blandning av ull och akryl, med ett innerfoder av mjuk fleece. Den håller barnen varma och gosiga om huvudet oavsett väderlek och skyddar även bra för starka, kalla vindar.


Den här mössan är lillasyster till Hawk Knitted Cap och är även den en modell som funnit med oss i många år. Den tillverkas i en blandning av ull och akryl, med ett innerfoder av mjuk fleece. Den här modellen är nedskuren över öronen för att bättre passa de minsta barnen. Mössan håller barnen varma och gosiga om huvudet oavsett väderlek och skyddar även fantastiskt bra för starka, kalla vindar.


Den här mössan blev vi alla förälskade i när vi såg den första prototypen. Det är en dubbelstickad Beanie som passar alla åldrar och stilar. Lika fin till det tuffaste Expedition skal-setet som till de lite mer modeinriktade modellerna. Vi har valt att göra den här modellen i flera färger och kommer nog att låta den här modellen finnas kvar i vår kollektion ett bra tag framöver. En favorit som är här för att stanna.


Vi såg originalet till den här mössan för några år sedan på ett barn som bar vår Penguin overall och blev helt tagna i hur fin kombination var. Det är en mer modeinspirerad mössa än de vi kanske är vana vid, men så otroligt fin till våra kläder. Mössan är handstickad och vi har valt att göra den i tre sobra färger med en fin pom-pom i fuskpäls som pricken över i:et. Den här mössan är precis lika fin på minsta ögonstenen som på den coola tonårstjejen.


Vinterjacka, skidjacka. Ja, kärt barn har många namn. Vi på Isbjörn kallar det för fodrad vinterjacka. Det är ett yttre skydd som står emot både vind och väta med ett membran på insidan av yttertyget som möjliggör att överskottsvärme ventileras ut ur plagget. Till det har vi adderat ett PrimaLoft foder, som ger fantastisk mjukhet och värmeisolering till minimal vikt. På så sätt kommer ditt barn alltid att vara torrt och lagom varmt under vintern. Oavsett väder och aktivitet. Alla sömmar är tejpade, så att vatten inte sipprar in vid närkontakt med regn eller snö. Vår vinterjacka är tillverkad av en extra slitstark nylon som heter Taslan, som är 2-3 gånger slitstarkare än polyester. Det gör att den tål att användas varje dag utan problem och ändå bibehålla all den funktion som vi lovar dig som kund. Jackan har tillväxtmuddar i ärmarna, vilket med ett enkelt ingrepp på insidan av ärmen, förlänger den med ca 3 cm och möjliggör att användas ytterligare en säsong. Rekommenderas att användas varje dag i förskola och skola samt på vintersemestern.


Vi har tagit fram en lättfodrad ”City” Parka till de större barnen. Ett mer modeinspirerat plagg med diskret framtoning, som passar lika bra i skolan som i skidbacken. Vår Parka är tillverkad med samma omsorg och fantastiska material som alla våra ytterplagg, med ett yttre skydd i slitstark Nylon Taslan, som står emot både vind och väta med ett membran på insidan av yttertyget som möjliggör att överskottsvärme ventileras ut ur plagget. Till det har vi adderat ett PrimaLoft foder, som ger fantastisk mjukhet och värmeisolering till minimal vikt. Parkan är i en längre modell, med rejäla utanpå fickor och huva. Alla sömmar är givetvis tejpade, så att vatten inte sipprar in vid närkontakt med regn eller snö. Kombinera gärna Parkan med vår fina Luna Pant eller varför inte med vår Offpist Pant. Att du är torr och lagom varm, det behöver du aldrig bekymra dig om när du bär Isbjörn.

I’m canvassing for Labour – even though, as a Swede, I can’t vote in this election | Susanna Kierkegaard

Labour’s radical programme is what Britain needs, and is a reminder to my country and Europe of what social democracy looks like

The UK election is probably none of my business. I don’t live here and I can’t vote. And yet I’m so invested in the outcome, I have decided to come over from Sweden to volunteer for the Labour party, handing out flyers and knocking on doors. Having grown up in Sweden, I already know some of Jeremy Corbyn’s proposed policies can work. I’ve benefited from free school lunches, have had access to university without tuition fees, and received free dental checkups into my 20s.

Despite having access to all these things back home, I chose to come to the UK in 2014 to do my degree at Oxford University. The combination of subjects in my degree, the tutors who made me think so hard I sometimes thought my head would fall off, and the beautiful city made it worth moving. However, the cultural difference was shocking as I got a glimpse of the class divide in Britain and what life outside the Scandinavian welfare model looks like.

Play-ing with Godot


I’ve finally come to a point where I have a project that is useful, and at a good enough quality (anyone with graphics skills who wants to help?) to be shared with the broader world: Mattemonster. What I’m trying to say is that I just went through the process of publishing a Godot app to the Google Play store.

There is already good documentation for how you export a Godot app for Android, and detailed guides how to publish to Google Play. This blog is not a step by step tutorial, but instead mentioning some of the things I learned or noticed.

First of all, when setting up the Android tooling, you usually have an android-tools package for your distro. This way, you don’t have to install Android Studio provided by Google.

The configuration settings that you use to export your app goes into the export_presets.cfg file. Once you put the details for your release key in, you should avoid storing this file in a public git, as it contains sensitive data. But even before then, it contains paths that are local to your machine, so I would recommend not storing it in a public git anyway, as it makes merging with others painful.

Finally, when building your apk file, a funny detail is that the switch to control if it is a debug or release build is found in the actual Save As… dialog, and not in the export settings. This was initially confusing to me, as I was looking in the wrong place.

The next step is Google Play. Here one creates all the accounts and listings as explained in the article linked to in the beginning of this blog. What is a bit unclear is that some settings are only available once an initial apk has been uploaded (e.g. Content rating).

Another of these dependencies that confused me is that even the closed alpha testing requires the app to have been published at least once. This means that you have to publish version 1.0 first, then you can use the alpha channel to push out updates quickly to your testers. As it takes up to a week (or longer…) to get the initial publishing through the system, this is a bit frustrating, as you really have to wait around for a few days before you can continue.

When you create an update, you need to remember to step the version code of the apk. This has to be done manually when configuring the export in Godot.

It is also worth mentioning that I did not opt-in to let google manage and protect my signing key. This means that I get warnings for not supporting bundles each time I try to publish, but these warnings can be ignored.

Next steps for me is to to publish to f-droid, and to provide some translations to be able to target more markets (right now the app is in Swedish, so I limited distribution to Sweden).


Wrong French address to public opinion

The French Foreign Minister has called the accession of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland and Belgium to the European Special Financial Mechanism(INSTEX) an indication of "Europe's commitment to a nuclear deal with Iran"! These ridiculous statements indicate that the French still intend to continue their joint game with the United States of America against the Islamic Republic of Iran. This dangerous, albeit unpredictable, game was started and continued by U.S. and French Presidents (Trump and Emmanuel Macron) in year 2017.

This Cheese Can Only Be Made in a Small Swedish Village And Nobody Knows Why

Västerbottensost cheese is known as the “Emperor of Cheeses” in Sweden. people there love its complex taste and creamy texture so much  that they use it on everything. When they can get their hands on it that is, because authentic Västerbottensost is only produced at a small factory in the village of Burträsk. People have […]

Cyprus farmers warn of halloumi shortages over EU protection plans


Cyprus farmers warn of halloumi shortages over EU protection plansGrilled and golden brown, it’s become a much-loved staple of British barbeques and summer salads, but all is not well in the hallowed world of halloumi. In Cyprus, which claims to be the true home of the distinctive squeaky cheese, a battle has broken out over whether to tighten up the rules that govern how it is produced. On one side is the Cypriot government, which is pushing for the island’s rubbery “white gold” to be given an EU badge of authenticity known as Protected Designation of Origin. The objective is to protect Cypriot halloumi from foreign imitators – lookalike products on the market such as “grilloumi” and “white grill cheese”. On the other side are cow herders and cheese producers, who say the new regulations are so exacting that they cannot be met and warn that the island’s halloumi sector will be brought to its knees. A Turkish Cypriot turns over pieces of Halloumi, a local cheese, in Ledra Street in central Nicosia, the world's last divided capital Credit: AFP They say the proposed rules are not only too tough, they are in some cases farcical. There would be a requirement, for instance, for sheep, goats and cows to eat five specific types of plants as they graze – but three of those are protected species. There is a stipulation that milk should come from certain Cypriot breeds of sheep and goats – but they are now in short supply after local herds were culled following an outbreak of scrapie disease a decade ago. Round discs of halloumi – produced specifically for barbeques and known as “burger halloumi” – would not be allowed because they are not deemed to be traditional. “If the new designation is adopted, it will be a disaster for halloumi makers,” Giorgos Petrou, the president of the Cyprus Dairy Producers Association, told The Telegraph. “It would cut exports by 60 per cent because there will be a lot less halloumi being produced.” That’s because under the PDO proposal, halloumi will be required to contain 50 per cent goat and sheep milk, rather than the 20 per cent currently stipulated. Cyprus produces less goat and sheep milk than cows’ milk, meaning that the quantity of halloumi that the island can produce will decline, while leaving a large surplus of unused cows’ milk. The row has pitched cattle farmers against sheep and goat farmers, with the latter broadly in favour of the designation because their milk will be in high demand. Women prepare traditional halloumi cheese at a house in the Cypriot village of Astromeritis, located some 30 km west of the capital Nicosia Credit: AFP But it could have a profound impact on a sector that is worth nearly €200 million a year and which employs around 12,000 people. Britain is the biggest market, buying around 40 per cent of exports – more than three times as much as the next biggest importer, Sweden. Business is booming across the board, with worldwide exports doubling in the past four years. But halloumi producers have warned that half of the island’s cheese factories could close down as a result of the push for PDO. Producers fear that if Cyprus can no longer satisfy its export markets, foreign makers of imitation halloumi will jump in to fill the gap. The battle over halloumi has been dragging on since 2014, when Cyprus first submitted its request for official EU recognition. The EU scheme ensures protection for food and drink that have strong links to the territory on which they are produced, from Champagne and Gorgonzola to Melton Mowbray pork pies.   Kalimata olives, for instance, must be produced in the region of Kalamata in Greece, using only olives that come from that area. Cypriot cheese makers say the agriculture ministry ploughed ahead with the PDO application without consulting them closely enough, with the result that the application has been gathering dust in Brussels for years. “The decision to register the PDO would be a suicidal decision for the halloumi industry,” Nikos Papkyriakou, of the Pan Cyprian Organisation of Cattle Breeders, told the Cyprus Mail. “And we would not even be allowed to sell our halloumi, because it does not comply with the file specs.” Costas Kadis, the agriculture minister, was unavailable for an interview but has insisted that the government should press ahead with PDO status. The agriculture ministry said that should happen “as soon as possible”. The objections of cheese makers had been examined but “rejected”, the ministry said. “The position of the ministry is that the best way for the halloumi to be protected is the approval of the PDO file by the European Commission,” a spokesman said. Nicos Anastasiades, the president of Cyprus, has given all sides a month to try to resolve their differences and to decide whether PDO status should be pursued or withdrawn. “We’re still in discussion. We’re waiting to see what the government’s next move is,” said Mr Petrou of the Dairy Producers Association.

Varying but reduced use of postoperative mobilization restrictions after primary total hip arthroplasty in Nordic countries: a questionnaire-based study


Varying but reduced use of postoperative mobilization restrictions after primary total hip arthroplasty in Nordic countries: a questionnaire-based study

Gromov, K., Troelsen, A., Modaddes, M., Rolfson, O., Furnes, O., Hallan, G., Eskelinen, A., Neuvonen, P. & Husted, H., 2019, In : Acta Orthopaedica. 90, 2, p. 143-147 5 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Background and purpose - Mobilization has traditionally been restricted following total hip arthroplasty (THA) in an attempt to reduce the risk of dislocation and muscle detachment. However, recent studies have questioned the effect and rationale underlying such restrictions. We investigated the use of postoperative restrictions and possible differences in mobilization protocols following primary THA in Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), Norway (NO), and Sweden (SWE). Patients and methods - All hospitals performing primary THA in the participating countries were identified from the latest national THA registry report. A questionnaire containing questions regarding standard surgical procedure, use of restrictions, and postoperative mobilization protocol was distributed to all hospitals through national representatives for each arthroplasty registry. Results - 83% to 94% (n = 167) of the 199 hospitals performing THA in DK, FIN, NO, and SWE returned correctly filled out questionnaires. A posterolateral approach was used by 77% of the hospitals. 92% of the hospitals had a standardized mobilization protocol. 50%, 41%, 19%, and 38% of the hospitals in DK, FIN, NO, and SWE, respectively, did not have any postoperative restrictions. If utilized, restrictions were applied for a median of 6 weeks. Two-thirds of all hospitals have changed their mobilization protocol within the last 5 years-all but 2 to a less restrictive protocol. Interpretation - Use of postoperative restrictions following primary THA differs between the Nordic countries, with 19% to 50% allowing mobilization without any restrictions. There has been a strong tendency towards less restrictive mobilization over the last 5 years.

Sven Longshanks: Audio Insurgency 81 – AAI 112819


Plenty of bass in tonight’s Audio Insurgency, twelve new tunes from Canada to Sweden, from dubstep to pipe and fiddle, in the company of this week's host, Sven Longshanks.

The master of the epic build-up Holon sets the scene with a funky ambient bass line, before Amalec surpass themselves with chopped up Orthodox chanting over rim shots and syncopated synth stabs.

Mojave gets the sub frequencies oscillating with dub step bass and a retro hook line, followed by cinematic synthwave artist Wolfgaze using a variety of styles to take us on a journey.

Dirty electro next from GosT, mixing Axel F style keys with Simon le Bon vocals, contrasting nicely with the smooth grooves and balaeric style of French producer Efilheim.

Emmett Brown is back with horror movie samples and darksynth sounds, leading us into the last of the synthwave tonight, Cult of Neon’s frantic chase scene influenced ‘The Church’.

Polished production and note perfect harmonies from The Decency starts the guitar section, before the chainsaws and growls of accomplished Polish hardcore band LTW take over the airwaves.

Gaslarm’s thrash workout follows with plenty of echo on the vocals, before we stop for a breather with KT8’s emotive punk ballad ‘Queen’s Lament’.

We come back with the twin guitars and heavy rock of Stereotyp and a final blast of anthemic RAC with Sturm 18, followed by Polish folk maestro Lord Wind winding the podcast down with traditional pipe, fiddle and drums.

Holon, Amalec, Mojave, Wolfgaze, Cult of Neon & The Decency are on Soundcloud

International Land Use Symposium

<p>Sustainable spatial development requires more and more precise and comprehensive information for planning and political decisions. This applies in particular to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. An international symposium to be held in Paris from 4 to 6 December 2019 will address current developments in the analysis, modelling and visualisation of data on land use and land cover changes.</p> <p>Under the umbrella "Land use changes: Trends and projections", the ILUS 2019 is dedicated to interdisciplinary concepts on how current developments in spatial analysis and data modelling can contribute to sustainable resource management and better support planning as well as urban and regional development. To this end, the symposium covers three major topics: Land Use and Land Cover Change Observations, Metropolization: Challenges and Risks as well as Drivers, Mechanisms, Tools. An open section provides space for other relevant contributions.<br /> <br /> The symposium will be opened with contributions of renowned international scientists in the area of spatial analysis and spatial planning. Keynote speakers include Andy Karvonen, KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm/Sweden, Martino Pesaresi, Joint Research Centre in Ispra/Italy, Norbert Pfeifer, TU Wien/Austria, François Moriconi-Ebrard, Centre national de la recherche scientifique/France, Nathalie Gaussier, Université Montesquieu Bordeaux 4/France, Jochen Jaeger, Concordia University Montreal/Canada, and Bin Jiang, University of Gävle/Sweden.<br /> <br /> The ILUS 2019 is jointly organized by the following partners: Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER, Dresden), Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire des Energies de Demain (LIED, University of Paris Diderot), Pôle Image (University of Paris Diderot) and Institut National de l’Information Géographique et Forestière (IGN, Saint-Mandé).<br /> <br /> 3 December 2019: Workshop on urban Sprawl<br /> On 3 December the pre-conference workshop “Approaches to limiting urban sprawl: policies, planning, and governance” will take place. The aim of the workshop on urban sprawl is to place the empirical results on the characteristics of Urban Sprawl into the planning, legal and economic context.<br /> <br /> Programme and panel discussion<br /> This year's panel discussion is focusing on the following topic: "Do spatial analyses matter? From geodata science to sustainability transformations" and will be led by Mathieu Arnoux (Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire des Energies de Demain, Université Paris Diderot) and Marc Wolfram (IOER, Dresden).</p>

Midnight Sun Rifle Challenge Pt3


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.
‘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.

Erythrocyte transfusions increased the risk of elevated serum ferritin in very low birth weight infants and were associated with altered longitudinal growth.

Acta Paediatr. 2019 Nov 28;:

Authors: Alm S, Stoltz Sjöström E, Nilsson Sommar J, Domellöf M

AIM: There has been a lack of population-based longitudinal data on serum ferritin in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants during hospitalisation. Our aim was to fill this gap in the knowledge and investigate risk factors for elevated serum ferritin and associations between erythrocyte transfusions and longitudinal growth.
METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed longitudinal data on 126 VLBW infants treated at Umeå University Hospital, Sweden, between 2010-2013.
RESULTS: The infants' mean gestational age and birth weight were 26.9 weeks and 899 grams. Most (91%) received erythrocyte transfusions and the majority had multiple erythrocyte transfusions. There was a significant correlation between serum ferritin and the volume of transfusions. Almost two-thirds had at least one serum ferritin measurement of more than 350 µg/L, indicating iron overload. In those with complete anthropometric data (n=78) there was no significant effect of serum ferritin concentrations in relation to longitudinal growth, but there was a positive association between the erythrocyte transfusion dose and longitudinal growth in VLBW infants born before 25 weeks.
CONCLUSION: This is the first population-based study to investigate longitudinal data on serum ferritin in VLBW infants during hospitalisation. The unexpected positive finding in the subgroup born at less than 25 weeks needs further research with a larger cohort.

Schoolchildren with unilateral or mild to moderate bilateral sensorineural hearing loss should be screened for neurodevelopmental problems.

Acta Paediatr. 2019 Nov 26;:

Authors: Stübner C, Flynn T, Gillberg C, Fernell E, Miniscalco C

AIM: The aim was to assess the rate and overlap of language and other neurodevelopmental problems in children aged 9-12 years with unilateral or mild to moderate bilateral sensorineural hearing loss.
METHODS: Caregivers of 24 of the 58 eligible children, born 2004-2007, registered at the regional audiology department in Gothenburg, Sweden, with these types of hearing loss completed the Five-to-Fifteen questionnaire, a comprehensive screening instrument for neurodevelopmental problems. Of these 24 children, 21 were assessed with the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals-Fourth Edition (CELF-4). Children with scores indicating definite problem on the Five-to-Fifteen questionnaire and their parents were invited to a clinical neuropaediatric assessment.
RESULTS: Of the 24 children, 13 (54%) screened positive for definite neurodevelopmental problems. Clinical assessments confirmed the presence of at least one neurodevelopmental disorder in eight of these 24, corresponding to 33%. Seven (33%) of the 21 children participating in the CELF-4 had scores indicating a language disorder, of whom four children had a neurodevelopmental disorder according to the neuropaediatric assessment.
CONCLUSION: The results support that schoolchildren with unilateral or mild to moderate bilateral sensorineural hearing loss should undergo neurodevelopmental screening to identify possible coexisting neurodevelopmental problems or disorders.

Unpasteurised maternal breast milk is positively associated with growth outcomes in extremely preterm infants.

Acta Paediatr. 2019 Nov 20;:

Authors: Lund AM, Löfqvist C, Pivodic A, Lundgren P, Hård AL, Hellström A, Hansen-Pupp I

AIM: Extrauterine growth restriction is common among extremely preterm infants. We explored whether intake of unpasteurised maternal milk (MM) and pasteurised donor milk (DM) were associated with longitudinal growth outcomes and neonatal morbidities in extremely preterm infants.
METHODS: Observational study of 90 preterm infants born 2013-2015 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Data were prospectively collected on nutritional and breast milk intakes during the first 28 days.
RESULTS: Ninety infants (39 girls and 51 boys) with a median gestational age of 25.3 (22.7-27.9) weeks were evaluated. MM intake (ml/kg/d) correlated positively with almost all z-scores for weight, length, and head circumference at 28 postnatal days and at postmenstrual age (PMA) 32 and 36 weeks. After multivariable adjustment, MM intake and weight z-score at 28 postnatal days and at PMA 32 and 36 weeks remained significantly associated. Infants consuming ≥80% MM had more favourable weight z-scores at PMA 32 and 36 weeks. Intake of DM did not correlate with any growth outcomes. Infants without retinopathy of prematurity had a significantly higher intake of MM (ml/kg/d).
CONCLUSION: Unpasteurised MM was positively associated to longitudinal growth outcomes. Motivating mothers to provide their infants with their own milk after preterm birth should be emphasised.

Successful treatment of a cohort of infants with neonatal diabetes using insulin pumps including data on genetics and estimated incidence.

Acta Paediatr. 2019 Nov 20;:

Authors: Torbjörnsdotter T, Marosvari-Barna E, Henckel E, Corrias M, Norgren S, Janson A

AIM: Neonatal diabetes is rare and treatment is challenging. We present aspects on treatment, genetics and incidence.
METHOD: This was a prospective cohort study including all cases in our study area in Sweden. We compared with data from the National Diabetes Registry, the Neonatal Quality Register and the National Patient Register.
RESULTS: In the 19-year study period 1 January 1998 to 31 December 2016, we treated seven infants, five of them boys. Six patients used a subcutaneous insulin pump, and the smallest patient started at a weight of 938 grams. Most important was for the pump to deliver minute doses of insulin and the design of cannulas and tubing. All patients could stop insulin treatment at 17-145 days of age. One patient relapsed at age 4.5 years. Four patients used the insulin pump after discharge. A mutation was identified in five patients and this included all patients born after 30 weeks of gestation. The incidence of neonatal diabetes was 2/100000, higher than previously estimated for Europe. Similar but lower incidences were reported in the registries.
CONCLUSION: Insulin pumps were safe in neonatal diabetes. All seven cases were transient. Neonatal diabetes was more common in our area than reported from Europe.

Music therapy supported the health-related quality of life for children undergoing haematopoietic stem cell transplants.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):1986-1994

Authors: Uggla L, Bonde LO, Hammar U, Wrangsjö B, Gustafsson B

AIM: Paediatric haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a stressful treatment with an impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and supportive interventions are needed. This study evaluated the effects of music therapy during and after HSCT.
METHODS: This was a randomised clinical pilot study of 29 patients aged 0-17 years who underwent HSCT at Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden, between February 2013 and May 2017. The music therapy group comprised 14 children who received the music therapy during hospitalisation. Fifteen children in the control group received the intervention after discharge. Music therapy was offered twice a week for four to six weeks. The patients' HRQoL, pain and mood were evaluated at admission, discharge and after six months. The instruments for HRQoL included the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory 4.0 generic core scales.
RESULTS: The scales showed that the music therapy group had a higher estimated physical function (adjusted p = 0.04) at the time of discharge, and the control group showed improved results after the intervention in all domains (p = 0.015).
CONCLUSION: Despite the small sample, we found improved HRQoL after music therapy, which suggests that it could be a complementary intervention during and after paediatric HSCT.

Renal swelling indicates renal damage in infants with their first urinary tract infection.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):2004-2010

Authors: Simrén Y, Valdimarsson S, Stokland E, Lagerstrand KM, Sixt R, Hansson S

AIM: We used ultrasound to evaluate renal swelling as a predictor of acute and permanent renal damage in infants with their first urinary tract infection (UTI).
METHODS: The cohort at the Queen Silvia Children's Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden, comprised 101 infants with their first UTI at a mean age of 3.9 ± 3.0 months. Acute and follow-up ultrasounds were carried out a few days and one month after treatment started, and a 99m technetium dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scan was carried out after one month and after a year if the first scan was abnormal.
RESULTS: The acute ultrasounds showed that renal length and volume, calculated as standard deviation scores (SDS), were 1.39 ± 1.43 SDS and 1.30 ± 1.08 SDS. We found that 52% of the one-month DMSA scans and 25% of the one-year DMSA scans were abnormal. Renal length (p = 0.0026) and initial volume (p = 0.0005) on the ultrasound predicted acute renal damage at the one-month DMSA scan and initial renal length (p = 0.030) predicted permanent renal damage at the one-year DMSA scan.
CONCLUSION: Renal swelling was associated with renal damage. Although the diagnostic performance compared with the DMSA scan was weak, renal swelling may help clinicians to make decisions about further investigations and follow-ups of infants with UTIs.

Hospital care for viral gastroenteritis in socio-economic and geographical context in Sweden 2006-2013.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):2011-2018

Authors: Lind J, Schollin Ask L, Juarez S, Hjern A

AIM: We investigated socio-economic and geographical determinants of hospital care for viral gastroenteritis in young children.
METHOD: This is a register-based study in a national birth cohort of 752 078 children 0-5 years of age in Sweden during 2006-2012. Hazard ratios (HR) of time to first admission and first episode of outpatient emergency department (ED) care with a diagnosis of viral gastroenteritis were estimated with Cox regression.
RESULTS: The adjusted HRs for hospital admission with a diagnosis of viral gastroenteritis were increased when the mother was below 25 years at the birth of the child, 1.30 (95% CI: 1.24-1.35), had a short (<=9 years) education, 1.18 (95% CI: 1.12-1.23), a psychiatric disorder, 1.34 (95% CI: 1.30-1.39), and/or when parents were born outside Europe, 1.23 (95% CI: 1.18-1.29). In contrast, the disposable income of the family was only marginally associated with such hospital admissions. The pattern of HRs for outpatient ED hospital care was similar. Hospital care incidences for viral gastroenteritis differed considerably between Swedish counties.
CONCLUSION: Parental indicators associated with a lower level of health literacy increase the risk for hospital care due to gastroenteritis in young children. Information about oral rehydration should be provided in ways that are accessible to these parents.

Children with a very low birthweight showed poorer reading skills at eight years of age but caught up in most areas by the age of 10.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):1937-1945

Authors: Leijon I, Ingemansson F, Nelson N, Samuelsson S, Wadsby M

AIM: We evaluated the development of reading skills in very low birthweight (VLBW) children and controls at 8-10 years of age.
METHODS: This study was part of a longitudinal study of VLBW infants born between January 1998 and December 1999 in Sweden. We recruited 49 VLBW children and 44 sex and age-matched full-term controls when they started school at the age of seven and tested them using identical methods for decoding, rapid naming ability, reading comprehension, and spelling and cognitive skills at about eight and 10 years of age. Univariate analysis of variance was performed to assess the effects of VLBW on reading performance at each age and to evaluate the differences between the groups and ages.
RESULTS: Very low birthweight children scored significantly lower in all domains of reading at 7.8 ± 0.3 years, but the performance gap had narrowed by 9.8 ± 0.3 years. Significant catch-up gains were found in phonological awareness, rapid naming ability and reading comprehension. The differences between the groups were minor at 10 years, when controlled for non-verbal cognition.
CONCLUSION: Very low birthweight children demonstrated worse reading performance at eight years of age than term-born controls. The gap in reading skills between the groups had largely narrowed two years later.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 12;107(12):2185-2192

Authors: Lindahl JK, Friman V, Ladfors SW, Hansson S, Andersson R, Jertborn M, Woxenius S

AIM: Renal transplant patients are particularly susceptible to highly contagious diseases due to their reduced immunity. We studied transplant recipients to gauge their varicella zoster virus (VZV) serology status over time and the outcome of any VZV infections.
METHOD: This retrospective study comprised 85 children who underwent renal transplants in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 1986 to 2014, at a mean age of eight (1-18) years. The children's medical records were reviewed and 47 had the VZV infection pre-transplant and 38 had been vaccinated pre-transplant. Clinical outcomes were available for 85 children and serology results for 72.
RESULTS: At transplantation, the VZV seropositivity rate was 50% in the vaccination group and 94% in the infection group and the antibody titres were significantly lower in the vaccination group (p = 0.031). During the median follow-up period of five years post-transplant, 28% of the vaccinated children and 97% of the infection group remained seropositive and the varicella infection affected eight children: one in the infection group and seven in the vaccination group. The herpes zoster was observed in two children in the infection group.
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrated that VZV vaccination protected from symptomatic infections to a lesser extent than natural infection, but provided effective protection from life-threatening disease.

Authors: Teär Fahnehjelm K, Olsson M, Chen E, Hengstler J, Naess K, Winiarski J

AIM: This prospective study assessed the long-term ocular and visual outcomes of children with mucopolysaccharidoses type I Hurler syndrome (MPS IH) who were treated with haematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT).
METHODS: Clinical ophthalmological assessments were performed on eight patients at the St Erik Eye Hospital, Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden, from 2001-2018: The median age at diagnosis and HSCT were 12.2 (range 5.0-16.4) and 16.7 (8.0-20.4) months. The last eye examination was at a median of 13.4 (6.3-19.0) years and follow-up lasted a median of 12.0 (5.0-17.4) years.
RESULTS: Poor visual acuity, poor night vision and, or, photophobia were reported by six children. The best corrected visual acuity at the last visit was a median of 0.4 and 0.5 in the right and left eye and had declined significantly in two patients. Corneal opacities had increased despite HSCT in five patients. High hyperopia, at a median of +6 Dioptres, occurred in all patients and stiff corneas in all four patients that were measured. The patients' corrected intraocular pressures were normal. Retinal degeneration was identified in two patients.
CONCLUSION: Despite HSCT, the long-term follow-up of patients with MPS IH showed reduced visual acuity due to corneal opacities or retinal degeneration.

Raymond Benza, MD - phaware® interview 303


Dr. Raymond Benza is a cardiologist in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including Alle-Kiski Medical Center and Allegheny General Hospital. He has been in practice for more than 20 years. In this episode, Dr. Benza discusses the importance of clinical trials in patients with pulmonary hypertension including a new molecule that's on the forefront of treatment for pulmonary arterial hypertension called PB1046.

My name is Dr. Raymond Benza. I'm a cardiologist who works at the Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Allegheny Health Network is one of the largest health care centers in Pittsburgh and includes facilities throughout Central and Western Pennsylvania. I have a lot of responsibilities here, but the most important role I have is serving as the director for the system for advanced heart failure, which includes cardiac transplantation and mechanical circulatory support, as well as run the pulmonary hypertension programs for the system.

Today, I'm going to talk a little bit about some unmet needs in pulmonary arterial hypertension including giving a brief description about the disease and some of the current limitations of the current drugs that we have to treat the disease. Then, go into a little bit about a new molecule that's on the forefront of treatment for pulmonary arterial hypertension called VIP. Also, I'll talk a little bit about the PhaseBio clinical trial utilizing this new therapeutic. Then, tell a little bit about what we're doing in the trials and what variables we're measuring. Then, I will talk a little bit more about the long-term extension trial for this particular molecule.

As many people are familiar, pulmonary arterial hypertension is a rare disease. We see it in about 50 per million people. It involves a variety of different types of subsets. The main one that we're interested in is called Group I pulmonary hypertension. This form of pulmonary hypertension is where the disease modifications are directly related to changes in the arterials and capillary structures within the lung, so that there's not a secondary etiological cause for a problem with the left heart or problem with the lungs or blood clots obstructing these. These are intrinsic abnormalities with the pulmonary vessels themselves.

This disease affects a number of people, including those who have heritable components. So, patients can inherit certain mutations in genes that affect the way blood vessels remodel themselves. The most infamous are the defects in the bone morphogenetic protein receptor type II. There are also other disease entities like connective tissue diseases; patients with cirrhosis; those who have HIV; and very importantly in an ever-expanding a number of therapeutics, other drugs that can actually damage these arteries and cause a very life-threatening condition.

Now the problem with pulmonary hypertension is not only the remodeling that we see in the pulmonary vessels, it's what that remodeling does to the right side of the heart. That is essential in really trying to understand the prognosis in patients who have this disease. The right side of the heart as opposed to the left side of the heart is not built to be a very muscular chamber. So, it's not used to pumping against very high pressures. When these high pressures develop as a cause of the disease, the right ventricle starts to enlarge to try to counteract this pressure that it sees coming back at it from the lungs. Unfortunately, when the right heart expands and dilates, it loses its ability to contract. So, right heart failure is really the main leading cause of death in patients with this very terrible disease.

I am old enough to really have experienced the full spectrum of the treatments for this disease. When I started learning about pulmonary hypertension and treating patients with this disease, when I was a trainee many years ago, there was no treatment for pulmonary hypertension. [Patients] were all coming to the heart and lung transplant list. That's really where I first met these type of patients, because transplantation was really the only cure treatment for this terrible disease. Then luckily in the late 1990s, a drug started evolving and coming to the market. The first [drug] was intravenous epoprostenol, and that became a life-saving drug. Because now we had a treatment for the disease, there was intense interest from both the PH community and the pharmaceutical community to develop other drugs that can treat the disease.

So, learning a lot about the pathways and how the disease propagates, we were able to develop really now a full armamentarium of therapeutics that have really changed the course of this disease from a rapidly progressive, deadly disease to a more chronic and progressive disease. We've doubled the life expectancy of these patients. So, these therapeutics have really helped, but we have not found the magic bullet. We don't have the Holy Grail yet, and patients will continue to progress, and they will continue to die from this disease, because we have not found the right combination of molecules to really put the disease at bay.

The type of patients that we see with pulmonary arterial hypertension, I think, has also evolved over the last several decades. Typically, when I was a trainee and early faculty, the patients we were seeing were young women, and that was the classic phenotype that we would see. As we know, pulmonary arterial hypertension occurs in women five times as frequently as it does in men. When we started learning more about this disease, we recognize that other disease subsets could also develop this disease. We began seeing in patients with scleroderma, lupus, HIV and cirrhosis. We were seeing a whole mix of different clinical phenotypes now coming to us with this same deadly disease.

So now we're seeing, typically, people present in their 40s or 50s. The mean age of patients that we see has moved from the 20s and 30s to now the 40s and 50s, and in some cases in the 60s. So, it really has been an evolving landscape. As people present with the disease at an older age, we're seeing a whole mix of other comorbidities that come along with the disease; hypertension, diabetes, renal insufficiency. It really has been a dynamically changing landscape. That's very important, because that has helped us grow the drug therapies to tailor to this growing and changing population of patient.

There are very good guidelines that we've developed to teach clinicians how to both diagnose the disease, and once it's diagnosed, how to treat it. One of the most important things that we do in contemporary algorithms to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension is we risk stratify people. So, when someone is newly diagnosed with the disease, we want to know where they are in the spectrum of the disease. Are they in the early portion, the mid portion, or these very late presenters who are almost in the terminal portion of the disease? That initial risk stratification enables us to use the right combination medicines upfront to battle the disease as aggressively as we can.

There are a lot of contemporary tools now that we use to risk stratify people. One of the most well used and probably the one with the best discrimination is the REVEAL score. But there have also been very good scores developed in Europe, including from our colleagues in France, Germany and Sweden, that have also enabled us to profile these patients to match [a] patient with individual drugs such that a low-risk patient may be good with an oral drug - one, maybe two. But a high-risk patient should always be started on upfront combinational therapy including parenteral prostacyclin. Then the intermediate risk [patient], somewhere in between those. So, risk stratification and then marrying the appropriate risk with the appropriate drug or combinations of drugs including a parenteral drug is ultimately the most important thing that we do now.

Many of the medications we have now are not truly disease-modifying drugs. They mitigate the course of disease primarily by ensuing changes in their regulatory and vasodilatory status of the blood vessels. By doing so, they allow the right side of the heart to operate more efficiently, but they do not cure the disease. They don't stop the smooth muscle proliferation; they don't stop the unchecked endothelial proliferation or the adventitial remodeling in the blood vessels. So, the disease is still there. That's why new drugs that actually modify the disease, that actually can stop the pathological processes, that are causing the arteries to remodel, those are drugs that we're looking for now.

We have great Band-Aids, and these drugs do great things to patients. As I mentioned earlier, we have improved mortality with this disease, but it will continue to progress. So, we need disease-modifying drugs, and we need drugs that can push people back from the high-risk profiles to the low-risk profiles consistently and steadily. That's where the explosion in these new molecules come into a very important role.

Clinical trials really run at the heart of what we do in medicine. We can't use drugs on people until we prove that they are safe and effective. That's what clinical trials do for us. Enrolling patients in clinical trials, particularly those who have unmet needs - they're not cured from the disease, they're continuing to suffer from the ramifications of the disease, they're still short of breath. These are the patients that we need to enroll in clinical trials to test these new therapeutics to make sure that they drive this disease down, and they make people have a better quality of life. We want people to function and feel better about the way they carry on their daily activities of living.

Obviously, being a clinical trial investigator, I get to work on the forefront of seeing new molecules coming through the clinical trial arena. PB1046 is one of those molecules. It's interesting. This is a molecule that we have tested before, not in this specific chemical composition, but in other forms. We found that it was a very potent dilator [of] the pulmonary vasculature.  Here's a new substance and a very unique molecule that we can give once a week, that can have long-lasting effects for the entirety of that week, and it will help with clinical efficacy in that manner.  That affords the patient a lot of free time - [to] not carry pills with them, to set timers or take their drugs.

The important thing to remember is that it's a new kind of treatment for PH that targets the disease process itself rather than just opening blood vessels like some of the older drugs. The hope is that it can be a more effective drug than these older therapies that focus mainly on dilating the blood vessels. The real name for PB1046 is a vasoactive intestinal peptide analog or VIP analog. Even though it's called vasoactive intestinal peptide, it does work directly in the lungs and heart, but it was first discovered in the intestines of some animals, and that's why they call it that.

I think I was the first clinician to actually try this therapeutic, and I had three patients try it. In two of them, it made them feel better, but sometimes the patients want to feel better, so it's not really clear whether it worked or not. That's a very strong placebo effect. However, when I measured the pressure in their lungs during treatment, it seemed to have helped that. It's interesting, because we utilized this new compound in patients who had an indwelling hemodynamic monitor, and we saw very impressive changes in the pulmonary artery resistances and the way their right heart reacted to that drop in resistance by improving its stroke volume.

Now, the injection causes some redness on the skin. Patients need to be aware of that and not be startled by it. I think the company says that it's due to the blood vessels that are expanding in the skin that's caused by VIP and [it] doesn't usually bother the patients too much. My patients got used to it, and they were able to stay on the drug for six to 12 months. There definitely needs to be more research to test it in more patients.

The company that makes PB1046 is called PhaseBio. I work with the company as a paid member of their scientific advisory board, and they're currently conducting a larger clinical trial, to test whether PB1046 is safe and effective in slowing down or reversing the pulmonary arterial hypertension disease process. They need to test the drug in about 60 patients to see whether it works or not.

It's a randomized double-blind trial, which means that patients will either get a high dose of PB1046 or a low dose. The high dose is what the company thinks may be more effective. Patients won't know which dose they're getting, obviously, until the trial is over. The treatment periods are about 16 weeks long, so patients will get 16 doses, once a week. After the 16-week study period is finished, patients will get to join the extension trial, which means that the patients can all get the high dose until the overall study results are known. Patients will have their lung pressures checked during the study, they do multiple six-minute walk tests, and have a variety of other assessments that are basic in many of our clinical trials that we do now in this disease process.

We're involved in this study, and the company is opening study sites at multiple clinics around the United States and in Europe, also. They seem very committed to bring this new treatment to PAH patients around the world.

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


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

Zlatan Ibrahimovic statue vandalised after striker buys into Hammarby – video report


A bronze statue of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Malmö, Sweden has been vandalised after the striker bought a 25% stake in rival club Hammarby. 

The 38-year-old began his career in Malmö, and his new involvement with a rival has not been well received by fans of his boyhood club. 

Videos posted on social media showed people attempting to set the 9ft sculpture alight, and a toilet seat on one of the statue's arms. 'Judas' was also written on Ibrahimovic's front door in Stockholm, and fermented fish was left on his doorstep.

Portugal, France and Germany in Euro 2020 super group

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

Investment in R&D propelled growth despite trade war setback: Honor


Beijing: Chinese technology giant Huawei's sub-brand Honor said investment in research and development is yielding fruits, leading to its continuous growth despite a setback it faced due to the US-China trade war.

"In 2019, when most of the technology brands suffered decline in China, Honor registered 100 per cent year-over-year growth in May," James Zou, President, Overseas Marketing and Sales at Honor, told IANS.

"We faced a setback due to a trade war with the US. But still, US tech companies are willing to work with us," Zou said, adding that Honor will achieve new heights of growth.

Huawei was put on a trade blacklist in the US on the basis of a suspicion that China might use the company's equipment to spy on other countries. Huawei has denied the allegations.

When it comes to investment in research and development, Huawei is one of the top five tech companies in the world. With total investment of $17 billion in 2019 alone in the field of research and development, the company is aiming at providing the best technology to its users especially in terms of 5G compatible devices globally.

"Honor and Huawei work just like the automobile brand BMW and Mini. Both of us share all the research and development investment together and only differ on the basis of our planning and operations," Zou said.

Huawei is among the key players globally with 5G networks already live in the UK, Sweden and South Korea. It had started working on 5G just when 4G was being rolled out for the first time.

In August, the company announced that it had started R&D for 6G technology.

"We are set to roll out our 5G devices globally. Going ahead we have already started working on 6G when most of the companies are struggling with 5G," Zou stressed.

Huawei and Honor differ in terms of channel strategy and how the two companies operate in terms of target audience. Huawei targets the premium segment.

"Honor is focusing on manufacturing more smart and connected devices," Zou said.

The 30 Best Things to Do in Portland This Weekend: Nov 29-Dec 1

by Mercury EverOut Staff

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

Friday, Nov 29

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

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

Amenta Abioto, Noah Simpson Group
I just can’t shut my trap when it comes to Amenta Abioto, whose work is a fluid combination of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and African music. To see her perform live is a real treat—Abioto has been at the top of her game recently, having perfected her soul-stirring vocals, improvised song-construction, and spot-on comedic timing. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, $5-10) JENNI MOORE

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

Turnover, Men I Trust
Turnover is clearly having some sort of major growth spurt. A few years ago, the Virginia Beach band was part of emo’s new wave, cranking out buzzy pop-punk tunes on a couple of albums released by Run for Cover Records. But on Good Nature, Turnover completes its transition into a dreamy indie pop band, with chiming guitars, laid-back vocals, and gauzy vibes. Often when this kind of thing happens, the artist stays tight-lipped on the reasons, but Turnover is open and honest about the stylistic shift, which it attributes to a wider palette of influences over the past few years: vintage soul and blues, Frank Ocean, electronic, the Beach Boys, bossa nova music, and jazz. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $25-28) BEN COLEMAN

One of Portland's most beloved holiday traditions returns, transforming the Oregon Zoo into winter wonderland of illuminated, multicolored brilliance, featuring over a million lights creatively arranged throughout the zoo. (Fri Nov 29, 5 pm, Oregon Zoo, $14.95-19.95, through Jan 1 2020)

Starving for Laughs: A Benefit for the Oregon Food Bank
Forget the buying and consuming part of Black Friday, and instead celebrate the laughing and helping part at this holiday comedy stand-up showcase benefitting the Oregon Food Bank, hosted by Jono Gindhart, Bryan Bixby, and Chase Anderson, with sets from Zehava Glazier, Chris Johnson, Cam Strong, Kandyce August, and Will Weldon. (Fri Nov 29, 7:30 pm, Kelly's Olympian, $10)

Snap! Y2K: The Missy Elliott Party
The November installment of the beloved monthly '90/'00s dance night invites you to come down and work off that Thanksgiving hangover with a little help from the sounds of Missy Elliott, along with resident DJ's Freaky Outty, Colin Jones, and Introcut. (Fri Nov 29, 9 pm, Holocene, $6-7)

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls
When I was a kid, I’d load up EA’s Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs into the ol' Sega Genesis, and I'd rewrite history; Terry Porter always scored 70 points a game, and Michael Jordan won nothing. Hopefully tonight, when the Blazers take on the Chicago Bulls, they can bring a video game to life better than, say… any of the Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat movies. Because yiiiikes.

Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist and EDM producer Sullivan King heads back up the coast for the Portland stop on the "Thank You For Raging" Tour. (Fri Nov 29, 7 pm, Roseland, $25)

Shpongle, Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, Luxora Major
Producer Simon Posford and flutist Raja Ram bring their pioneering psybient and psych-infused trance project across the pond to head up a special audio-visual experience in Portland. Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, and Luxora Major round out the proceedings, along with a full array of artisan vendors, stage performers, and more.

Kikagaku Moyo, Mope Grooves
Psychedelic five-piece Kikagaku Moyo started out busking on the streets of Tokyo in 2012, and now they’re touring the world as one of this decade’s most highly coveted acts. A couple years ago, the band came to town to play a pair of Pickathon sets, and, despite trying my best to make it to their performance at the Galaxy Barn, the venue hit capacity before I (and countless others) could make it inside. So it’s only right that Kikagaku Moyo—whose moniker translates to “geometric patterns” in Japanese—is making another visit to the City of Roses this fall. After all, Portland’s scene of eclectic, psychedelia-loving listeners is exactly the kind of audience the band wanted to engage when they left Japan.

Brian Posehn
The beloved comedian, writer, and actor known for his roles on Mr. Show, W/ Bob and David, The Sarah Silverman Program, and most recently, The Mandalorian (he's the space-Uber driver who gets eaten by a giant ice worm thingy after picking up a fish-faced Horatio Sanz! Spoilers! It's a weird-ass show!) brings his unrivaled charm and wit back to town for a headlining show at Revolution Hall. (Sat Nov 30, 8 pm, Revolution Hall, $25-30, all ages)

Thievery Corporation, Brazilian Girls

Risk of non-affective psychotic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder by refugee status in Sweden.


Risk of non-affective psychotic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder by refugee status in Sweden.

J Epidemiol Community Health. 2019 Nov 25;:

Authors: Duggal AK, Kirkbride JB, Dalman C, Hollander AC

BACKGROUND: Refugees have different experiences of obtaining a refugee status, however it remains unclear if this affects their risk of psychiatric disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate whether risk for non-affective psychotic disorder (NAPD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) differs between quota refugees (resettled from refugee camps) and non-quota refugees (former asylum seekers).
METHOD: A register-based cohort with a sample size of 52 561 refugees in Sweden starting 1 January 1997 ending 31 December 2011.
EXPOSURE: refugee status (quota or non-quota refugees). Cox regression models estimated adjusted HRs with 95% CIs for NAPD (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10), F20-29) and PTSD (ICD-10, F43.1) by refugee status.
RESULTS: There were more non-quota refugees (77.0%) than quota refugees (23.0%). In total we identified 401 cases of NAPD, 1.0% among quota refugees and 0.7% among non-quota refugees, and 1070 cases of PTSD, 1.9% among quota refugees and 2.1% among non-quota refugees. Male quota refugees were at increased risk for NAPD compared with male non-quota refugees (HRmale=1.41, 95% CI 1.09 to 1.82 and HRfemale=0.65, 95% CI 0.42 to 1.00). All quota refugees were at a reduced risk of PTSD compared with non-quota refugees (HR=0.74, 95% CI 0.64 to 0.87).
CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that risk of NAPD and PTSD varies for quota and non-quota refugees, highlighting the possibility that different experiences of the migration process differentiate the risk of psychiatric disorders among refugees.

Kids’ Grades Can Endure When Mother Or Dad Is Depressed

Enlarge this imageMary McLain for NPRMary McLain for NPRWhen mom and dad suffer despair, there could be a ripple effect on children. Kids may well develop into nervous, even sad. There may be behavior challenges. Wellne s may undergo. Lately, a substantial Swedish research confirmed that grades might decrease, way too, whenever a mum or dad is frustrated. Making use of details from 1984 to 1994, scientists from Philadelphia's Dornsife School of Public Health and fitne s, at Drexel College, calculated college grades for more than 1.1 million small children in Sweden and in comparison them with their parents' psychological well being standing. The review was published inside of a February i sue of JAMA Psychiatry. At age sixteen, children of moms who had experienced despair scored about 4.five proportion points le sen inside their school grades than little ones of nondepre sed moms. Similarly, 16-year-olds with fathers who had experienced melancholy scored about 4 percentage points decrease. Although four or four.five points may not sound like a great deal, it "can mean quite a bit for your college student," suggests Drexel epidemiologist Felice Le-Scherban. It may be the difference between an A quality or even a B or between a D and also a C and tiny grade discrepancies can insert up, from time to time shaping a call about whether to remain at school or stop.The amount and quality of education and learning might make a big difference well over and above school many years, claims Le-Scherban. It truly is certainly one of the "strongest predictors of health and fitne s and everyday living expectancy that we've got," she says. Experiments show that better-educated people are not as likely to smoke cigarettes, consume alcohol or be obese than people who do not complete high school or college or university. They tend to have a lower risk of heart ailment and diabetes. You will discover a variety of causes why frustrated parents may have a complicated time nurturing their children, states epidemiologist Myrna Wei sman, of Columbia University Healthcare Middle in Big apple. "Just believe regarding the indications of despair the emotions of hopele sne s, helple sne s, lack of electrical power, curiosity in things that sometimes provide you with enjoyment," she suggests. "And consider about owning those people indicators and making an attempt to take care of kids." The desires and calls for of kids could be mind-boggling even for mentally wholesome mother and father, a lot le s those people having difficulties to cope with despair. "A father or mother who's depre sed might not prepare an appointment using a teacher; might not have time to go; may well not pay attention to the kid; and will not find some solution to i sues to make sure that it lingers," says Wei sman. But, there is a silver lining: Despair is amazingly treatable. Wei sman has done many research, like one that focused on depre sed mothers. "We showed that at the end of 3 months, if mom got much better, the children acquired better," she says. The women who recovered from melancholy bought enthusiastic about their young children Max Scharping Jersey again and were more loving and capable to indicate it. Wei sman says she listened to from young children them selves that their mother "just enjoys me additional and listens to me." She and other people have found that psychotherapy or medication by yourself or a blend of the two can be succe sful remedies, she says. Sadly, scientific depre sion is prevalent, in addition to a substantial variety of grownups is often predicted to go through a serious episode at some time of their lives. But even if you've inherited a propensity to despair, Wei sman claims, it is po sible to get identified and dealt with the moment probable, to great effect.

Kenya retains seat at global maritime council


Kenya has retained its seat on the Council of the International Maritime Organisation, giving it a chance to continue playing a role in global shipping rule making. The vote on Friday evening in London saw 174 member states take part with Kenya retaining its seat under Category C of 20 countries usually reserved for those with special interest in maritime transport or navigation. In Africa, Morocco, South Africa, Liberia and Egypt are the other members of Category C. Kenya holds special interests in maritime transport and navigation as the coastal, port and flag state “whose strategic location along the Eastern Africa coast makes it a most important cog in the wheel of steering global shipping,” according to Maritime Principal Secretary Nancy Karigithu who led the delegation to the polls. “Our re-election to Council will ensure continued representation of a major geographic area in Eastern Africa and the Great Lakes region consisting of the countries Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda,” she said on Saturday. Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, also the Permanent Representative to the IMO, said he was delighted by the vote result. “It confirms the world’s confidence on our leadership around maritime transport and safety, and our commitment to the Blue Economy,” he said. Kenya joined the IMO in 1973 and was first elected to the Council under Category “C” in 2001 and has been re-elected in subsequent elections to date, the last being in 2017. It is one seat at a UN agency where Kenya has dominated lately. But this election saw heavy lobbying. Some marine and shipping giants like Sweden, Nigeria and Liberia lost their bids. Qatar, a wealthy oil producer as well as Saudi Arabia also lost out. The IMO is the specialised agency that determines rules on shipping safety and environment. With more than 80 per cent of global trade running on seas, the IMO’s regulatory framework determines how shipping lines and ports operate. By The Eastafrica

Uganda and Rwanda lead East Africa in switch to electric cars


Uganda and Rwanda are racing ahead of their East African neighbours in the global switch to electric motoring, even as infrastructure shortcomings limit investments in the emerging sector. Both Kampala and Kigali have unveiled electric vehicle assembly plants in the past two months, blazing the regional trail with Kenya and Tanzania only making baby steps toward embracing the new technology. Uganda’s state-owned Kiira Motors Corporation has so far shown the biggest ambition in the region by building two battery-powered cars and a solar electric bus. The electric bus, called the Kayoola Electric Vehicle Series (EVS), has been built using Kiira Motors home-grown green mobility technologies while partnering with Chinese Equipment Manufacturer, Motor Co. Ltd. The buses can cover a distance of 300km under a single charge and have a capacity of 90 passengers (49 sitting and 41 standing), compared with the diesel engine ones which have a capacity of 65 passengers. Last year Uganda committed nearly Ush24 billion ($6.4 million) to put the first fully home-made car on the road. The amount is part of a planned Ush145 billion ($39 million) spending over four years, 2018 to 2022. In Rwanda, German automaker Volkswagen started assembling electric vehicles in Kigali in October this year, with the German power equipment firm Siemens planning to set up 15 charging stations in the Rwandan capital. This comes after a local Rwandan firm, Ampersand, started selling electric bikes powered by batteries that can last for about 75km of riding. East Africa’s uptake of electrical vehicles however remains extremely low compared to global leaders, according to Global EV Outlook report 2019. Lack of investment in charging infrastructure and absence of fiscal incentives such as subsidies and rebates on vehicle acquisition taxes, and lower toll or parking fees are to blame, the report launched by the International Energy Agency states. Measure It notes that scaling up of EV adoption in the region requires measures that provide incentives to increase the availability of vehicles with zero and low tailpipe emissions including massive investments in charging infrastructure installations on highways and in buildings. “We must address the issues of infrastructure and energy because these vehicles need energy and space for charging. The government should also consider tax incentives to attract investors and even buyers of electric vehicles,” said the Group chief executive of Nairobi-based motor dealer Simba Colt, Dinesh Kotecha, in an interview. In Kenya, Finnish firm EkoRent introduced a fully electric taxi dubbed Nopia Ride last year. The firm has installed five charging stations in three locations, including the Two Rivers Mall, the Hub Karen and Thika Road Mall. The Tanzanian government last year approved an initial roll-out of electric Safari vehicle at its flagship national park of Serengeti in an effort to reduce gas emissions. The Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Club became the first tour company in Tanzania to release a 100 per cent electric Safari cars in the region. Tanzania is reportedly seeking to power its electric cell driven vehicles through mass production of graphite minerals, with plans to build four of such factories in the country. In Ethiopia plans are underway for a local electric vehicle assembler—Tom Renewable Electric Bike Assembly & Sales—to start production in the country. The electric vehicles can go up to 40Km/h and are charged using standard 220v electric outlets. The vehicles take between four and six hours to get fully charged and can travel up to 60km on one charge. It is estimated that Ethiopia spends $3 billion annually to import fuel, pushing its annual spending up by 10 per cent. Japanese Firm Mitsui and Co. The company in April made a successful trial for a three-wheels electric car in Addis Ababa. The electric car called ‘E-trike ‘has five dedicated batteries, each with a capacity to go 80 kms with a single charge. The company has plans to establish an assembly plant in Ethiopia. Two decades ago, the world decided it was going electric and in 2009 a multi-governmental policy forum was established under the Clean Energy Ministerial to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles worldwide. The CEM consists of 24 nations and the EU, who together account for 90 per cent of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. So far 13 countries are participating in the EVI including Canada, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and UK. Electric mobility is expanding at a rapid pace globally, with the total electric car fleet exceeding 5.1 million last year, compared with 3.1 million in 2017. China remains the world’s largest electric car market, followed by Europe and the US, while Norway is the global leader in terms of electric car market share. By  The Eastafrica

Global Climate Protests Ahead of Madrid Meeting

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.

Getting and Keeping a Foot in the Door: Strategies by Migrant and Informal Sector Women to Remain Relevant in the Labour Market


This work was supported by Mistra Urban Futures


United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5 and 8 focus on gender equality; decent work and economic growth respectively. The achievement of these goals requires a realization that gender parity is significant to the growth of global economies, and that meaningful inclusion of women in the labour market is a major contributor to reducing the global gender gap. Over the years, there has been an increase in the participation of women in the labour market. Despite the various measures put in place, this inclusion continues to be hampered by structural and cultural factors. However stereotypic roles and responsibilities as well as systematic structural inequalities within the labour market continue to serve as barriers to optimal involvement and participation in gainful employment. This article seeks to explore these gender related inequalities that threaten to exacerbate women’s economic vulnerability and dependence for specific localized groups of women in Kenya and Sweden. Using a framework based on structure, culture and agency, the article illuminates how these women navigate challenges presented by the nature of the job, multiplicity of roles and language as an empowering tool. Key insights from the study established that the women in the different contexts experienced similar threats and used their agency to maneuver these so as to participate as effectively as they could in the labour market. The coping mechanisms employed by these women present opportunities for policy makers and advisors in both contexts to explore in the quest to improve women’s participation in the workforce.

Are You Letting Society or the Spirit Shape Your Story?


Kanye West, Beth Moore, John MacArthur, President Donald Trump and Adam Schiff—what do all of these people have in common? Certainly controversy—lots and lots of controversy. But what else? They all have purpose that should be revealed in their life story. Regardless of the circumstances and choices that have landed them in the news and on the lips of people across the country and around the world, God has a purpose for each one of them. The Holy Spirit wants to shape their life story even though we may see the world trying to define and write their life story, and our life story, for us.

God is transforming lives and filling people with the power of the Holy Spirit, and woe to those who try to prevent that holy work. That's why 2 Corinthians 5:16 (NIV) reminds us of this important truth: "So from now on we [should] regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer." While the world and our flesh tempt us to view others through judgmental eyes and shape people's stories for them, the Holy Spirit is constantly working in people's lives to inspire their story. His presence always invites freedom and brings real change.

This past week I watched an extraordinary moment of God's grace when Kanye West was not only recognized, but received by one of my favorite preachers, Joel Osteen. The backlash was deeply disheartening. If our society will not even accept that a rapper proclaiming "Jesus is King" has been truly saved, imagine how we would have treated Paul. He persecuted and murdered Christians, and God still shaped his story into something that glorified Him! After his conversion he immediately went to get baptized by Ananias and ended up writing several books in our New Testament Bible, not to mention the way God used him to work multiple life-changing miracles. Imagine how different all of our lives would be today if Paul had listened to everyone's opinions about his relationship with God and allowed himself to become discouraged about following the Lord's leading.

What about Peter? He denied Jesus before the crucifixion but then repented of his mistake, and God was able to use him in miraculous ways.

Or what about Abraham? He lied not once but twice about his relationship with his wife to save his own skin, among other indiscretions, and he is still counted as one of the fathers of our faith.

Moses was far from perfect, yet God chose him and used him mightily for the saving of His people anyway. Like Abraham, he appears alongside other giants of our faith in Hebrews 11.

When the power of the Holy Spirit came in Acts 2, all that Jesus had done for His followers came to supernatural life. Just like Peter and Paul were drastically changed, we are too when we receive the Holy Spirit. Since the Holy Spirit changes, restores and radically renews people to Him, who are we to decide if their salvation is authentic? Even if it happens not to be, God is the author of that person's story, and our judgment is like an ugly, black smear on the pages of their lives.

Who are you letting shape your story? And how are you shaping others? Are you letting the Holy Spirit do His work, or are you tuning in to—or even joining—the chorus of voices shouting their opinions? It is clear that Kanye West is not letting the voices of the media define his story. He is unapologetically sharing his faith with the entire world, and the Holy Spirit is working, in Kanye's life and others'. Wow! What a thought—unapologetically sharing your faith with the entire world while the Holy Spirit works in your life. That sounds like a follower of Christ.

You are beautiful! I see Jesus in you.

Europe’s backlash against Huawei has arrived

Europe’s backlash against Huawei has arrived komprakti 周五, 29.11.2019 - 14:06

Resistance to Chinese technology is growing in Germany—and the ripple effects could reach across the continent.

Image by ImagineChina

The eastern German city of Leipzig was supposed to be the site where Angela Merkel crowned her fourth and final term as chancellor with a foreign-policy coup: a comprehensive investment agreement with China sealed in the presence of President Xi Jinping and fellow EU leaders. Instead it could be remembered as the place where Merkel’s China policy was thrown irreversibly off course by rebels in her party who refused to accept her plans to allow the Chinese telecommunications group Huawei to build Germany’s fifth-generation mobile network.

It is not clear yet whether the revolt—led by former Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen and supported by a cross-party grouping of lawmakers and cabinet officials as well as Germany’s intelligence agencies—will succeed. But there is a chance that it will. And if it does, we could look back on Leipzig as an inflection point in Germany’s—and Europe’s—relationship with China.

That is because an exclusion of Huawei in Germany could have a ripple effect across Europe, encouraging other countries to follow suit. Excluding Huawei would also upset the delicate balance Merkel has been trying to strike between Washington and Beijing, Germany’s two biggest trading partners outside of Europe. And it would probably trigger a forceful response from Beijing that could undermine Germany’s already faltering economy and hit some of its biggest firms, inexorably pushing the country, and Europe, down a more confrontational path with Beijing.

This is not how Merkel wants to end her 16-year reign as chancellor. After a year in which the European Union, encouraged by Germany, began to push back more aggressively against China, introducing a new mechanism to screen foreign investments and declaring Beijing a “systemic rival,” 2020 was supposed to be the year in which Berlin and Brussels reaped the fruits of their tougher stance. Under acute pressure from US President Donald Trump’s trade war, the reasoning went, Xi would be compelled to find common ground with Europe. It was a chance for the EU to wring concessions from China on a range of issues, including long-stalled negotiations on an investment agreement that would open up the Chinese market to European firms.

China's appetite for compromise seems limited

In recent months, Merkel signaled that she wanted to sign off on the investment deal at a summit in Leipzig next September attended by Xi and fellow European leaders. But she is not off to a good start. With a year to go until the U.S. election, it is Trump, not Xi, who is under pressure to deliver his promised trade deal with China. Beijing has hunkered down, refusing to budge on the big structural changes that Trump’s negotiators want most. This has shifted the dynamic with Europe. China’s appetite for compromise, which seemed ample last April when it bowed to EU pressure and made a series of reform pledges—on technology transfers, subsidies, trade rules and investments—suddenly seems limited. Officials in Brussels say Beijing is refusing to take meaningful steps in negotiations on the investment agreement.

If anything, Beijing has grown more defensive and combative with Europe in recent months amid new revelations about the mass detention of Muslims in China’s western region of Xinjiang and escalating protests in Hong Kong. In recent weeks, China has threatened Sweden with “consequences” for awarding a freedom of speech prize to Gui Minhai, a Chinese-born Swedish publisher imprisoned in China for printing books critical of the government. And a former employee of the British Consulate in Hong Kong has accused Chinese police of torture. Stories like this have added wind to the sails of those in Germany and elsewhere in Europe who are pressing for a ban of Huawei, a company they say is under the thumb of the Chinese Communist Party and an active enabler of its dystopian surveillance state, including in Xinjiang. (Huawei denies both.)

An increasingly charged debate over 5G in Germany

Relations between Berlin and Beijing have grown more tense in recent months. The Chinese leadership has still not forgiven German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas for meeting with the Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong in Berlin in September and has canceled a series of bilateral meetings. German officials say they are still waiting for China to propose a date for government consultations—Berlin and Beijing’s flagship annual meeting. The Germans want to hold this in the first quarter of next year, before an EU-China summit in Beijing, for which there is also no firm date. “Serious damage has been done to the bilateral relationship in many areas,” the Chinese ambassador to Germany said in a speech in Bonn this week.

The tensions are building against the backdrop of an increasingly charged German debate over 5G. After Peter Altmaier, Merkel’s economy minister, made a clumsy attempt to defend Huawei in the aftermath of the weekend rebellion—equating the risks of spying from China with those emanating from an “unreliable” United States—he came under attack from Trump’s envoy to Germany.

While Huawei critics argue that the risks of entrusting critical 5G infrastructure to a company that under Chinese law is obliged to collaborate with the country’s intelligence apparatus, Merkel and Altmaier have highlighted the economic risks of excluding it.

Germany’s carmakers and big industrial heavyweights, from Siemens to the chemicals group BASF, rely heavily on the Chinese market. They are desperate to prevent  a backlash from China that seems certain to result from an exclusion of Huawei.

And they have good reason to worry: During a visit to Beijing in September, Merkel was warned by Chinese leaders that an exclusion of the Shenzhen-based group from the German 5G network would have serious consequences for bilateral economic ties, according to German officials. It would certainly doom the chances of clinching Merkel’s cherished investment agreement. And her Leipzig summit next year, meant to be the high point of Germany’s EU presidency and a crowning achievement before she leaves the political stage, would probably go up in smoke.

That could explain why, weeks after Merkel’s Beijing visit, German security criteria for 5G were watered down, with her approval, opening the door to Huawei. This softening triggered the rebellion last weekend, one of the biggest challenges to Merkel’s authority in recent years.

Growing resistance against Merkel's Huawei-friendly stance

The lead rebel Röttgen, who ran afoul of Merkel when he was environment minister and was sacked by her in 2012, is now head of the foreign affairs committee in the German parliament and a prominent critic of her government’s strategic inertia. Last month, he assembled a group of conservative allies to fight back against Merkel’s Huawei-friendly stance. Lawmakers from the Social Democrats, Merkel’s coalition partners, soon joined in, followed by Maas, the foreign minister. When Merkel’s hand-picked successor, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is also defense minister and leader of the Christian Democratic Union, questioned the wisdom of including Chinese suppliers in early November, the battle was officially on.

At their party conference in Leipzig, Merkel’s Christian Democrats backed a motion that would give the lower house of parliament a veto on the security criteria for 5G suppliers like Huawei. The text ensures the criteria will include language that rules out suppliers that might be subject to the influence of a foreign country. “This is not about Huawei,” Röttgen said. “It’s about the fact that Huawei is a company that can’t escape the influence of the Communist Party leadership, whether it wants to or not.”

It may take months to know for sure whether his rebellion will succeed. But Huawei’s prospects in Germany, and in Europe, are looking shakier by the day.

Norway's sugar tax flop

Imagine the government raising the cost of living so much that it's cheaper to go shopping in Sweden. That's the situation Norwegians find themselves in...

Norwegian sugar tax sends sweet-lovers over border to Sweden

It seems unfair to call it a sweet shop. In the shopping centre north of Charlottenberg in south-western Sweden, barely four miles from Norway and less than 90 minutes’ drive from Oslo, is a candy superstore.

Arrayed across 3,500 sq metres of floor space – half a football pitch – are aisle upon aisle of sugary treats, more than 4,000 products in all, from sour strawberries, liquorice laces and fruity gumballs to red rockets, Lion bars, M&Ms, Milky Ways and Oreos.

One of maybe 30 similar confectionery and soft drink stores lining the Swedish side of the border from south to far north, it is, said Matts Idbratt, operations manager for Gottebiten – which runs half of them – “the biggest sweet shop in the world. We think”.

Between them, those stores turn over about SEK2bn (£160m) a year – and they exist solely because the price tags on the pick’n’mix bags, snack bars, chocolate boxes and soft drinks they sell are, on average, less than half those in neighbouring Norway.

“It’s crazy,” said Eirik Bergland, a 39-year-old laboratory technician from the Oslo suburb of Bjerke. With three children under 12, he has made three cross-border shopping trips this year – although not just for sweets, he stressed.

“A lot of products are cheaper in Sweden than in Norway,” Bergland said. “Alcohol, tobacco, plenty of stuff. Cross-border shopping has happened for decades. But candy and soft drinks are a lot cheaper. A whole, whole lot cheaper.”

Norway has had a tax on sugary products since 1922. The Guardian says it was introduced 'to raise revenue for the state, rather than improve the health of the nation' as if this makes it any different from modern sugar taxes.

In January last year, the tax on chocolate and confectionery went up by 83% to the equivalent of £3.12 per kilo. The tax on fizzy drinks - including zero-sugar drinks - works out at about 43p a litre.

The result was predictable...

The tax increase had “quite an impact on our sales”, said Idbratt, whose giant sweet emporium is part of a booming cross-border trade that earned Swedish businesses – some owned by Norwegian investors – SEK16.6bn (£1.3bn) last year, 10% more than in 2017.

Idbratt said Gottebiten, founded by three entrepreneurial brothers in 1997, had “seen more customers, and existing customers are buying more”. Norwegian shoppers made 9.2m trips across the border last year, according to Statistics Norway.

It's all very reminiscent of Denmark's fat tax fiasco.

Still, there is no doubt that Norwegians have cut down on sugar, as another Guardian article reported last week:

Norwegians are eating less sugar than at any time in the last 44 years, the health directorate in Oslo has said, announcing that annual consumption per person had fallen by more than 1kg a year since 2000.

.. The directorate’s annual report on the Norwegian diet said that average annual consumption of sugar had plummeted from 43kg to 24kg per person between 2000 and 2018 – including a 27% reduction in the past decade – to a level lower than that recorded in 1975.

It's not clear if these figures take account of cross-border shopping, but it is a remarkable drop either way. And so, naturally, rates of obesity have fallen commensurately, right?

Wrong. According to the WHO, Norway has an obesity rate of 23.1 per cent, higher than Sweden's 20.6 per cent and - for that matter - higher than Finland's 22.2 per cent and Denmark's 19.7 per cent.

Moreover, the record shows that Norway's obesity rate has increased at a remarkably steady rate for many years, unaffected by changes in taxes or sugar consumption.

The picture is similar in Britain where sugar consumption has fallen by around a fifth since the 1960s - although campaigners are reluctant to admit this - while obesity has risen.

Maybe - just maybe - sugar isn't the culprit and crude 'public health' policies based on dogma rather than facts don't work?

Still, good news for Sweden's border town confectionery industry.

The Persecution of Julian Assange and its Implications for Canadian Press Freedom

The case to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the United States seems to have little to do with Canadians at first glance, however, the truth is that this unprecedented challenge to press and democratic freedom concerns all of us.

The pursuit to imprison Assange started a decade ago when he published hundreds of thousands of classified documents belonging to the US government, detailing flagrant abuse and atrocities committed abroad by the United States, its military, its corporations, and their allies overseas (Canada included).

The response to the exposé of these numerous crimes by the US shows just how far a hegemonic superpower will go to hide them. It is a case that is remarkable not only for what it implies for freedom of the press in Canada and other countries, but for what it reveals about the extraterritorial power and reach of US imperialism. Above and beyond Assange himself, this case holds severe implications for all those engaged in questioning America’s hegemony and the structures it has created.

The Case Against Julian Assange

Assange’s trial has already commenced in London, where he is now being held in solitary confinement at a maximum security prison. He is currently fighting an extradition request from the US for publishing documents leaked by whistleblower Chelsea Manning. The Swedish preliminary investigation into alleged sexual misconduct has now officially been dropped (for the third time), meaning that Assange is being held exclusively in relation to the publication of US government documents.

The initial proceedings have demonstrated that the rule of law is dispensable when dealing with the Wikileaks founder. Having already been labeled a narcissist by the first presiding judge and denied bail pre-emptively by another, Assange’s fate now rests in the hands of the British legal system which has thus far rejected claims by the United Nations and others who have denounced the disproportionality and cruelty of his treatment.

Niels Melzer, the UN special rapporteur for torture, has repeatedly stated that Assange is exhibiting the symptoms of prolongued exposure to psychological torture and has called on the UK to cease its arbitrary detention and punitive measures. Assange’s father, John Shipton, has warned that his son may die in prison due to the extremely repressive conditions he faces.

For the crime of exposing war crimes, Assange is currently being held in a small jail cell for 23 hours a day, without access to the materials necessary to prepare his case. It is clear that if he is extradited to the US, he will likely never again emerge from prison, as he faces a severe sentence of 175 years for the simple offence of revealing the truth. Through this prosecution, the US authorities are sending a clear message against those who would dare pull on the thin curtain that covers their corruption.

Democratic and Press Freedoms

As Julian Assange is being prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917, his case holds significant implications for the publishing activities of all journalists, especially those who investigate governments, foreign policy and war. Passed in the context of America’s entry into the First World War and modelled on the UK’s Official Secrets Act, the Espionage Act criminalizes those who supposedly undermine US military interests. This law has historically been used to crush and silence dissent and to impede press freedoms - as was the case of famed American socialist and union leader Eugene Debs who dared to denounce US involvement in the First World War. The US responded to this criticism by imprisoning Debs for a decade.

Assange is being punished for publishing true information which is undeniably in the public interest. This, in principle, is the mandate of news publishers who should act so as to hold the powerful to account. What Wikileaks did in publishing the Iraq War Logs, Afghan War Diaries and Cablegate was no different than what the Washington Post did when publishing the Pentagon Papers leaked by Daniel Ellsberg in 1971. Furthermore, the documents published by Wikileaks were also featured by the Guardian, the New York Times and other mass media outlets. Still, despite the concerted effort among many to reveal the truth, Assange alone is being persecuted.

The use of the Espionage Act to indict Julian Assange constitutes a turning point in the war against the freedom of the press. If publishers can be prosecuted for publishing verified information, then the ability to accurately report on national security, foreign policy and war with a critical lens will be effectively prohibited.

With the Assange case, it appears this danger within US jurisdiction now extends to foreigners working beyond America’s borders. Assange is an Australian citizen, has never held US citizenship, and has only published his information abroad. All journalists who publish information that the US may consider to be damaging to its imperial interests are clearly at risk of political imprisonment. In the era of the Trump presidency, one can imagine the seriousness of this threat for all those who dare speak the truth about the superpower’s abuses.

The threat posed to press freedom also effectively undermines all other democratic rights. The inability to understand how one’s government is operating within the world or how it is interacting with the world’s most powerful players prevents real democratic engagement. Citizens who are not informed cannot act effectively. A society without a free press and freedom of expression is not a democratic society. Through Espionage Act and its prosecution of whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, Bill Binney, Reality Winner and others, the US has revealed itself to be closer to an autocratic police state than to the democracy it purports itself to be.

What about Canada?

If the US Department of Justice can go after an Australian citizen so ruthlessly, we can assume they would do the same to any Canadian publisher or journalist that also chose to reveal more uncomfortable truths about American Empire. Canada’s national security establishment is profoundly tied to that of the US and is thus heavily impacted by how the superpower conducts itself within the world. In fact, a leaked US diplomatic memo from 2017 reveals that the current Trudeau administration is pursuing an ‘America First’ policy. Ben Norton, an American investigative journalist with the Greyzone Project wrote that “The memo offers the most concrete evidence to date that the United States sees Ottawa as an imperial subject and considers Canadian foreign policy as subordinate to its own.” This means that access to information about US dealings is also undeniably in the public interest of Canadians. This memo makes explicit the ways in which our foreign policy is vassalized by the United States.

As the future is marked by uncertainties linked to an increasing and unsustainable disparity of wealth, the rise of racist nationalism, and a warming climate, conflict and war are increasingly concerning. Moreover, considering the volatility of the current American administration, it is easy to imagine that Canada may soon find itself wrapped up in another illegal US-led military intervention in another country. It is, therefore, essential that our press and our reporters be able to publish and analyze objects of US foreign policy.

Already, we see that the Assange case is having larger repercussions - in July 2019, the Australian national broadcaster, the ABC, was raided by federal agents in relation to the publication of stories on Australian involvement in the Afghan war. This explicit act of intimidation directed towards journalists demonstrates the increasingly fierce measures being taken by those who seek to censor the press.

In the current climate, it is far from inconceivable that such an attack on the press could take place in Canada and gravely undermine our ability to hold our government to account. For this reason, the Canadian press must join with others in firmly condemning the prosecution of the Wikileaks founder and demand that Assange be freed. Failure to do so not only endangers their ability to do their jobs but also threatens the very foundation of our democracy. This fight concerns all of us - accordingly we need to pay attention and understand what is at stake.

How your drinking co-workers affect the workplace

Excessive drinking by workers can place a burden on colleagues, whether through absenteeism, reduced productivity or alcohol-related accidents in the workplace. Research in high-income countries has revealed the high economic cost of co-workers' drinking, but little is known about alcohol's harm to others in the workplace in lower- or middle-income countries. Researchers from Australia, Sweden and the USA have published a new report in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research comparing the impact of co-workers' drinking on working people in 12 countries.

Please, everybody, go to the following invitation to our Webinar app Zoom is comparable to a venue with people in the audience, (called Attendees), and people on the stage, (Organisers) and lastly a microphone podium for when the Meeting Chair has given you the right to speak.

Register here now please: —->

You will receive a confirmation email with your very own unique URL to the event, with a couple of reminders  as we get closer to the event. Please also share that link to all of your colleagues and to your Twitter and Facebook so that nobody in your country is in the dark about the GA. On the top of the page are sharing buttons making it quite easy to help us spread the word. The webinar has 10 000 seats so we encourage everyone who wants to register as Attendees. We will also be streaming the event on Youtube. That URL will be publicised right after we start the event. The public therefore will have two ways to follow the GA. In Zoom or through Youtube.

General Assembly Debates, Discourse

On December 1st, as long as you have registered for the event, you will receive an invitation to Discourse on email. There you can, from that day, talk about the GA and submit motions and nominations should you so feel inclined. Your moderators will be the board of PPI. This is the address for Discourse:

You will there also find these specific areas to
Debate motions:
Present nominations:
And have an open discussion about the GA:

General Assembly Meeting and Voting app, Congressus

On this GA we will present and use, for the first time, Congressus. A beautiful invention by the French pirates that we in the board hope will become available for the rest of the Pirate movement. It is an app that will help, even down to the local level, everyone to run a party in a professional way and strengthen processes, transparency and democracy. As long as you have registered you will get an email reminder to register to Congressus.

If you do not register your delegates, (up to six per member), and voting email, (only one), you will not be able to take part as a delegate for your country. Should you happen to be good at minutes feel free to contact one of the organisers, (the board), and you can help crowd-source them.

Please register for Congressus here and now: —>

Chat and meeting app, Discord (all year round channel)

In the coming months PPI will try to facilitate a channel, or space if you will, for grassroots efforts and cooperation. We think that we have to be where our members are. It was then an easy choice. Discord does a few things extremely well.

Please join Discord now already: —>

Those horrible formalities

For us that <just love statutes> wink we have to inform the rest of you that because of them and also for practical reasons we will have to have an email from your Pirate Party, a proven representative like the international coordinator stating who will be the delegates and from which email account your votes will be cast in Congressus.

Contact your leadership and urge them to send us your delegates to: —>

This, we will of course only need for official delegates. Everyone else can just disregard this point.

The fun part, Pirate Beer

The night before the event, at 20:00 CET – Friday December 6th, we invite you to an online Pirate Beer in Zoom. We’ll chat about anything, everything, and have a drink if you like. It’s a great tradition started many years ago in Sweden.

The room, found here: —>, will be open to everyone. See you there.

Oh, before I forget. The password is 777. Like in Pirates of the 777 seas, for those that remember what being a scally wag before the Pirate Party was founded in Sweden was like. Yes, there where Pirates a plenty that shared everything and all them files as far back as late in 1986, if we are not mistaken. (wink)

Provisional Agenda

Here is the agenda the GA and PPI members will finalize at the start of day one. When you are registered to Discourse you can find it here: —>


Amon Amarth review – berserkers, sea serpents and catchy death metal


Academy, Birmingham
Over heavy riffs and double kick drums, the folklore-obsessed Swedish band deliver a thundering theatrical spectacle

Vikings are invading again, although this time they arrive in a tour bus, not in longships. Sweden’s Amon Amarth (an Elvish name for Mount Doom, courtesy of JRR Tolkien) have been crafting Viking-themed metal since 1992, but after 11 albums they can fill good-sized venues such as this one. Their songs deliver tales of Viking folklore, wars, wolves, Norse gods and berserkers (elite Viking warriors who wore animal pelts, not armour) over a soundtrack of brutal but melodic and passionate death metal. Drummer Jocke Wallgren sits atop an enormous horned helmet.

With their long hair, thick beards, tattoos and leather accessories, the quintet cannot be accused of not looking the part. Vocalist Johan Hegg – a sort of gravel-voiced, metal Grizzly Adams – has a drinking horn attached to his belt and would make a convincing exhibit in Jorvik, York’s Viking museum. “Are you ready to do battle with me?” he roars.

A 19th century archive photo prompts online debate over teenage climate activist

A black and white photo has been shared tens of thousands of times in Twitter and Facebook posts which claim it is an image from 1899 showing Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. The image has sparked an online furore, with many posts claiming it proved Thunberg was a time traveller, others saying it was doctored, and still more claiming it was evidence of reincarnation. But the black and white photo has actually been held in the archives of the University of Washington Libraries since the 1960s. UW said the image had not been doctored and was taken in Canada in 1898 by photographer Eric A. Hegg, who documented the Klondike gold rush. Thunberg was born in Sweden in 2003.

Northern supply security: The functioning of the Crown’s magazine supply system in Finland during the construction period of Sveaborg 1747–1756

Building the fortress of Sveaborg was an enormous project which required thousands of soldiers as construction workers year after year. Merchants of Helsinki could not procure enough food for the market and consequently the soldiers could not buy what they needed. Thus, the Crown had to provide bread, meat and other foodstuffs for them.

The aim of this thesis is to examine how the Crown storage magazines were utilised in organising food supplies for the workforce. The study also emphasises the other functions of the magazines. Stores had to be prepared for a possible war against Russia, and farmers required seed for their fields in case of harvest failure. In addition to the accounts of the magazines, the main sources for this study are the letters and minutes of the central governmental institutions.

The thesis demonstrates that, unlike many other European states in the 18th century, Sweden had a highly centralised supply organisation. When the Crown bought grain, flour and other foodstuffs, it played an active part in business negotiations. The officials of the Crown also took care of many other functions of the supply organisation: storing the goods in magazines, transportation, and manufacturing bread.

The reasons for the relative lack of private entrepreneurs’ involvement in the supply organisation are manifold. Finnish towns were small, and their merchants had only a limited amount of capital. The rich merchants of Stockholm, on the other hand, could not freely take part in the provisioning of soldiers in Finland, because the Crown had a principle of buying foodstuffs locally whenever it was practical and affordable. Magazines were also needed to store grain which farmers delivered as taxes. In addition, magazines were needed in case of harvest failure to prevent grain shortages. Because Finland was blocked by ice during the winter months, it was especially important to have stores gathered in advance in case sudden subsistence crises occurred.

The functioning of the magazine supply system during the construction period of Sveaborg reveals how much effort and preparation it took to provide food for soldiers and grain for farmers in the northernmost parts of Europe. The Crown had to take an active part in all levels of the system to ensure that it worked well. For that reason, the Swedish military supply system significantly differed from those in use in many other countries.

Forever an Outcast?: An examination of the link between political opportunity structures and the fortunes of the Radical Right in Western Europe

  • Janos Christian Ørbæk Damm
4. semester, (Bachelor Programme)
Why have populist radical right parties (henceforth PRRPs) been successful in some Western European countries while they have at most been a minor nuisance in others? This Master’s thesis sets out to explore this discrepancy through a comparative case-analysis of four Western-European PRRPs; The Rassemblement National, the Danish Peoples Party, the UKIP and the Sweden Democrats.
Much of the academic literature on the fortunes of the PRRPs has been explored through the prism of so-called demand-side explanations, that is, the focus has been on understanding why a growing number of voters demand these kinds of parties in the first place. From this perspective, the literature has arrived at several explanations, typically within a macro-structural frame; the PRRP are the result of run-amok globalisation, of neoliberalism, of marginalisation, of the breakdown of class-allegiances and/or is an expression of the growing distrust towards politicians. This thesis, however, inscribes itself in another area of research. One which examines the fortunes of the PRRPs from the point of view of the political systems in which these parties develop and operate. In this, the thesis looks at the supply-side of things. While the demand-side explanations are certainly important for the understanding of the rise of the PRRPs, the supply-side perspective is better suited for explaining the variance in PRRP’s success that can be observed in countries that, from a macro-structural perspective, are very similar.
Among the various supply-side factors to influence the fortunes of PRRPs, the thesis examines three specific variables that can be configured in different ways from country to country as well as within the same country over time. The first one is the electoral system (majoritarian or proportional), the second one is the configuration of the political space (convergence or divergence, the positions of the PRRP vis-à-vis the major establishment parties) and the third one, which considers the reactions of the establishment parties towards the PRRP (adversarial, dismissive or accommodative), can be called the party-strategic context. These tree variables taken together can be called political opportunity structures or exogen political supply-side factors, and in selecting those the thesis thus delimits itself from looking at, for instance, the role of the media or that of the PRRPs themselves.
The analysis of these three different opportunity structures results in a lot of interesting conclusions and some which partly goes against the theoretically deduced expectations.
Firstly, concerning the role of the electoral system, the comparative case-analysis shows that the majoritarian system is not unconditionally, and contrary to the expectations, more inducive to the electoral success of a PRRP than a proportional system. While the case of UKIP supports the theory that a majoritarian election system can deter people to vote for a PRRP, the case of France, where Front National has experienced huge voter support, shows that this is not always the case. The case of the Sweden democrats, as well, shows that a proportional system, in itself, is not always all that is needed for a PRRP to succeed. The majoritarian system is, though, much more punishing towards PRRPs than the proportional system when it comes to translating votes into seats.
Secondly, concerning the role of the configuration of the political space, the analysis shows that convergence between the two major establishment parties, at least partly, do correlate with voter success for the PRRPs in question, especially convergence on the issues of European Integration. Moreover it shows that a general turn to the right on the position of multiculturalism might be inducive for the success of the PRRPs, but also that if this turn to the right is strong enough, it might catch many of the voters who would have otherwise voted for the PRRPs, thus resulting in the demise of the PRRP.
Thirdly, concerning the role of the party-strategic context, the analysis first and foremost shows that an adoptive strategy from the establishment parties - in correspondence with the findings of the analysis of the political space - can increase the voter support for these parties. Furthermore, the case of the Danish Peoples party in particular shows that a strategy of cooperation, contrary to the expectations, can result in increased success of the PRRPs, though this might also depend on the specific form of partly-in-partly-out cooperation that are only possible within the settings of a negative parliamentary system. Finally the analysis also shows that an adversarial strategy might correlate with different outcomes, depending on which kind of adversarial strategy is being pursued; A strategy of simply demonizing seems to correlate with increased electoral success for the PRRP, while the establishment of a cordon sanitaire – in combination with a majoritarian electoral system – seem effective in diminishing the political influence of the PRRPs.
Finally, the thesis also demonstrates that the three different exogen supply side factors interact with each other, shaping a combined and specific opportunity structure that profoundly affects the fortunes of the PRRPs.

New principle for activation of cancer genes discovered

Researchers have long known that some genes can cause cancer when overactive, but exactly what happens inside the cell nucleus when the cancer grows has so far remained enigmatic. Now, researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have found a new mechanism that renders one canonical driver of cancer overactive. The findings, published in Nature Genetics, create conditions for brand new strategies to fight cancer.

Maternity acupuncture in the UK, what do you know about it?

Women are seeking acupuncture treatments for a variety of women's health–related conditions. A European Union (EU)/China survey from acupuncturists indicated that 41% of EU respondents commonly treated obstetric/gynecologic issues, of which half of them from the UK. Another U.K. survey of acupuncturists reported that fertility acupuncture is 15% of their treatments. Maternity acupuncture is also popular. In pregnancy, the most-common conditions were nausea and vomiting, lower-back or pelvic-girdle pain (LBPGP), and labor preparation and induction. Acupuncture during pregnancy and labor has been evaluated as safe when used by a suitably qualified practitioner, and a growing willingness to refer for pregnancy-related acupuncture has been reported from Western health practitioners.

The majority of acupuncturists in countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, offer maternity treatment through private clinics. In contrast, the majority of maternity acupuncture care in European countries—such as Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland—is administered by hospital midwives who take short training courses.

A recent survey from the UK shows that the most-common maternity situations encountered were: birth preparation [96.5%]; nausea & vomiting [94.2%]; and inducing labor [90.8%]. More than 50% of the practitioners were also treating lower-back and pelvic pain [88.5%], breech presentations [85.0%], threatened miscarriages [63.2%], and headaches/migraines [52.8%]. Only a minority (8 [9.1%]) attended births. A greater number of referrals were received from medical health professionals for pregnancy [65.8%] than for fertility [19.5%] or menstrual conditions [9.7%].

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Suffered at the Hands of Her Own Family


"Priests, my Son's ministers, priests, by their evil life, by their irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the holy mysteries, love of money, love of honor and pleasures, priests have become sewers of impurity. Yes, priests call forth vengeance, and vengeance is suspended over their heads. Woe to priests, and to persons consecrated to God, who by their infidelities and their evil life are crucifying my Son anew! The sins of persons consecrated to God cry to heaven and call for vengeance, and now here is vengeance at their very doors, for no longer is anyone found to beg mercy and pardon for the people; there are no more generous souls, there is now no one worthy of offering the spotless Victim to the Eternal on the worlds behalf.

"God will strike in an unparalleled manner. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His anger, and no one will be able to escape so many evils at once. The heads, the leaders of the people of God, have neglected prayer and penance, and the devil has darkened their minds; they have become those wandering stars which the ancient devil will drag with his tail to destruction. God will permit the ancient serpent to sow divisions among rulers, in all societies and in all families; both physical and moral punishments will be suffered. God will abandon men to themselves and will send chastisements one after the other for over 35 years.

"Society is on the very eve of most terrible scourges and greatest events; one must expect to be governed by a rod of iron and to drink the chalice of God's wrath. (The Message of Our Lady of La Salette.)

The era of apostasy and betrayal in which we live has indeed sown divisions all across the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide, especially in our families. There is hardly a family in the Church today that has not been riven by the events of the past fifty years. A state of "cold war" exists in so many families over the most important matter in their lives: the salvation of their immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church. Husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters are estranged from each other as the adversary seeks to embitter hearts in the midst of his advances in the popular culture and within the counterfeit church of conciliarism itself.

These family divisions exist even in families who are immersed in all things conciliar, including their "full, active and conscious" participation in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. A wife, for instances, might see, at least in shadow form, "problems" with the Novus Ordo while her husband does not, considering that any discussion of "problems" is a sign of "disloyalty" to the "pope" and to the Church. A husband might want to enforce standards of modesty within his household, only to find that his wife has received carte blanche from their local conciliar "pastor" to dress herself and her children as she pleases. Some other wife, fearful of the curriculum found in their local conciliar schools, might want to home school her children while encountering deep resistance from her husband. Other families in the conciliar structures are torn apart on matters of whether to watch television at all, no less the offensive programming that is broadcast around the clock each day, and whether to consider "rock music" evil, finding little comfort and support from their local "pastors," especially when "youth" "Masses" feature "rock music" and immodesty.

Some families are riven over the most basic issues of the Faith: Who is God? Why should I obey Him? Why are His Commandments unchanging? Why should I believe that there is one, true Church? What can't I dress as I want and watch what I want on television at at the movies? Why don't all people go to Heaven no matter what they believe or how they behave? Why do I have to pray to Mary when I can go "straight" to Jesus Himself? Who says there is a Purgatory? What's the big deal about shopping on Sunday? Why can't women be priests? Why can't I limit the number of children I want to have? Who says women can't wear pants and short skirts and sleeveless blouses? Why can't men walk around shirtless or sleeveless themselves?

Such has been the triumph of the conciliar revolution that large numbers of baptized Catholics get married even as they have been denied a true understanding and love of the Holy Faith, leading to untold amounts of grief in the future in the event that one spouse actually grows in the Faith and wants his family's life to revolve around It so that each family member can strive for sanctity and be in Heaven for all eternity. All manner of "mixed marriages" exist even between baptized Catholics as one spouse's belief in and commitment to the Faith varies from the other spouse's. A desire to grow in sanctity on the part of one spouse can clash with the other spouse's desire to be worldly and to be accepted as "normal" by others who are equally worldly.

This is a problem that exists across the ecclesiastical divide, but it is heightened considerably when one spouse embraces the Immemorial Mass of Tradition while the other "prefers" the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service, no less when one spouse comes to understand that the Catholic Church cannot be responsible for the novelties and abominations and sacrileges and blasphemies of the past fifty years while the other spouse thinks that such a conclusion is a sign of "mental illness." Hard feelings are sometimes engendered. Battle lines are drawn. Phone calls are made to relatives and friends to convince the "wacko" spouse who is committed to that "old Mass" and/or who believes that the "pope" is not the pope that he is wrong and in need of psychological, if not psychiatric, assistance. Imagine being "different from others, especially when somewhere around 99.99% of people completely reject any semblance of a view that the "Vatican," of all places, is wrong about the "new" "Mass" and false ecumenism and religious liberty and separation of Church and State?

The battles that have been and continue to be fought within families as a result of the loss of the Faith are tragic. Children are sometimes told that their father or their mother (whichever the case might be) is in need of "help" because he or she has been inspired by Our Lady's graces to quit the ways of the world and to grow in sanctity. People who have studied nothing of First and Last Things and who have a contempt for the glories of the lives of the saints consider themselves "expert" about the Faith, being reaffirmed these days in their utter ignorance by men masquerading as "bishops" and "priests" in the conciliar structures.


Embrace a life of Holy Poverty?

Renounce the acquisition of more material goods?

Vacation only where one can find a true offering of the Mass at the hands of a true bishop or a true priest who makes no concessions to conciliarism?

Throw out the television?

Don't participate in the devil's holiday on October 31?

Don't participate in "holiday" parties during Advent?


Be different from the rest of the world?

Why, why, this is, this is, this is crazy, isn't it?

Being "misunderstood" by one's closest relatives is certainly a difficult cross. So what? Nothing we suffer in this passing, mortal vale of tears is the equal of what one of our least Venial Sins caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer during His Passion and Death as those Seven Swords of Sorrow were plunged into His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Rejected, misunderstood?

So what?

Everything gets revealed on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead. The intentions of all hearts and the circumstances of each life will be revealed then. While we pray for those who we believe have misunderstood us in this life and those who might even have rejected us, we may have to wait, barring Divine intervention in many cases, until the Last Day for a reconciliation with those from whom we have become estranged as a result the events of our current circumstances in the Church and the world.

For those who are suffering at the hands of family members because of their embrace of the Faith and/or because of their having come to see the truth of our ecclesiastical situation, the great and wonderful and humble saint we commemorate today, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, one of the earliest followers of Saint Francis of Assisi, should be embraced as a model and intercessor par excellence. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who was married at the age of fourteen to her husband, Louis of Thuringia, was misunderstood by most of those who lived in Wartburg Castle. Saint Elizabeth was held in particular disdain by her brothers-in-law during her husband's life because of what was considered to be her "eccentric" habit of giving away everything that she had to the poor. These same brothers-in-law drove her out of the castle entirely after Louis, known in the German language as Ludwig, and then spoke against her to the very poor people who she had assisted so generously when her husband was alive.

Consider this passage from Blanche Jennings Thompson's magnificent Saint Elizabeth's Three Crowns:

It was the third hard winter in village and castle. The weather was bitter cold, food was scarce, and tempers short in the Wartburg. Henry and Conrad [Louis's brothers] meant very well, but they did not understand Elizabeth. Without Louis to protect her, they treated her with little respect. Henry scolded and Conrad sneered. To them she was just queer and unreasonable. She made everybody uncomfortable, they said. Nobody likes to have his conscience prodding him constantly, and that was the effect that Elizabeth seemed to have on other people.

Landgravine Sophie [Louis's mother] stayed at the castle and tried to defend Elizabeth. there was now a strong bond between them. They had both loved Louis deeply. But, in spite of Sophie's sympathy, Elizabeth was ill-treated in the castle. It is hard to say whether or not Henry and Conrad deliberately turned people against her, but they certainly did nothing to protect her. Guda and Ysentrud shuddered at the cruel talk they heard again, just as in the olden days when Elizabeth was the little strange princess from Hungary. Even then she disturbed the ladies of the court by being "too pious," "too religious," or by "trying to act holy."

Down in the village the people whispered what they had heard from the servants in the castle.

"She wasted all the landgrave's money--gave it to undeserving beggars."

"Yes, and remember how she gave away the precious grain right and left? She should never have been trusted with money."

"It is a good thing that Prince Henry knows how to be firm with her. He has put strong locks on the granaries and gives her no money at all. Louis was always too lenient."

The minds of the people were poisoned against Elizabeth. The very ones whom she had nursed and cared for turned against her now.

One dark, cold night she suddenly made up her mind. She walked down the icy path to the village, leaning on cane for safety's sake. She planned to find some place for herself and the children to live. There were lights in several houses, and she tried one after another.

"Who is there?"

"The landgravine, May I come in?"

Silence. No one would open. At last a tavern-keeper took pity on her and let her stay in an old tool shed.

"I will drive out the pigs, my lady," he said, so that you can sleep."

Some old work clothes hung on a hook. These he put on a bench and over her knees and left her. There she sat in the cold until dawn. Then she heard the Mass bell from the Franciscan church.

The friars were chanting their morning prayers when they saw in the half darkness the figure of the landgravine. She walked toward the altar, surrounded by the light of their candles as by a glory, and began in a clear voice to sing the Te Deum. After a startled moment the friars joined her. She was welcome in the House of God.

Elizabeth had always wanted to give up everything and be a beggar like Brother Francis [of Assisi]. This was her change Guda and Ysentrud [her loyal attendants] brought the children down to her, and she took them with her as she begged from house to house. But door after door was shut in her face. The royal princess, Elizabeth of Hungary, Landgravine of Thuringia, accompanied by the royal children, were turned away by her subjects. Guda and Ysentrud wept bitterly.

A poor priest gave them shelter and a bed of straw, but orders came from the castle that they must all move immediately to the home of a certain nobleman who was an especial enemy of Elizabeth. Unwilling to offend Henry, he did give them a small dark room, but refused food, heat, or any other comfort. The next day Elizabeth took her little family back to the friendly tavernkeeper's shed. Before she left, she touched the walls of the room as she used to as a child in the Wartburg Castle.

"Thank you, kind walls," she said, "for sheltering us against the weather as well as you could. I should like to thank you master, but I have nothing to thank him for."

Of course Elizabeth could not keep the children with her in the kind of life she was leading. She had to send them to trusted friends of their father--at least for a time. She herself continued to live in the shed, supporting herself by spinning and weaving. Something deep in her heart had made her turn from the medieval idea of servant and master. Long, long before the rest of the world would accept the doctrine of brotherhood, she, like St. Francis, believed in the equality of men. She preferred poverty to luxury made possible by the misery and labor of serfs and slaves. In spite of her sufferings, she was happy to be like Christ. [Blanche Jennings Thompson, Saint Elizabeth's Three Crowns, Vision Books: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1958, pp. 150-153.]  

Yes, many even in a Catholic world at the beginning of the Thirteenth Century thought that anyone who took the Faith too seriously and saw the very image of the suffering Christ in the faces of the poor was just a little "nuts," a little "crazy" in the head. What? Pray a lot before the Blessed Sacrament? Practice severe mortifications? That's just not quite right, huh? "Normal" people don't do such things. Ah, may we all be as crazy as Saint Elizabeth of Hungary and suffer much from those around us for being so! Such is the path to sanctity by dying to self and disordered self-love.

Saint Elizabeth forgave her persecutors, her own brothers-in-law. She forgave the poor people whom she served so generously when she was their queen. Imbued with the spirit of Saint Francis of Assisi, who said "Deo Gratias!" whenever he was spat upon or beaten up by thieves or insulted by worldly Catholics, Saint Elizabeth never harbored grudges. She willed the good of those who insulted her, those who calumniated her, those who subject her to homelessness and a life, if for a time, of begging from door to door. She imitated her Divine Redeemer, who forgave and made excuses for His executioners, namely, each one of us by means of our sins, as He hung on the gibbet of the Holy Cross. We can do no less. We must will the eternal good of all men, especially those of our own households who may, for one reason or another, hold us in the same contempt with which Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was held by her brothers-in-law (and by her mother-in-law before she had a change of heart over the years) and her fellow countrymen who had benefited so much from her selfless acts of generosity in their behalf.

Our Lady of La Salette predicted that families would be torn apart. As noted before, we must pray for a happy reconciliation in eternity with all of those from whom we are estranged in this life. Nothing matters save that we save our immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church who die in states of Sanctifying Grace. No amount of misunderstand, ridicule, ostracism, rejection, humiliation or other injustices at the hands of others matter at all. Our sins did far worse to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother. We must accept the sufferings of the present moment with joy and with gratitude, always remembering friend and regrettable foe in the Memento for the Living in the Canon of the Mass and remembering those who have died in the Memento for the Dead in the Canon.

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who was indeed an exemplar of the Social Reign of Christ the King (and suffered for it in her own castle!), can help reunite divided families in eternity, if not before, if we turn to her Heavenly intercession.

The Divine Office for today's feast highlights the virtues of this truly wondrous daugher of Saint Francis of Assisi:

Elisabeth, daughter of Andrew II., King of Hungary, was born in the year 1207. She began to fear God even from a little child, and grew in grace as she grew in years. (In her fourteenth year) she was married to Lewis, Landgrave of Hesse and Thuringia, and thenceforth gave herself up to the things of her husband, with as much zeal as to the things of God. She rose in the night to make long prayers. She consecrated herself to works of mercy. She waited continually on widows and orphans, the sick and the needy. When a sore famine came in the year 1225, she provided corn bountifully from her own house. She founded an house of refuge for lepers, and would even kiss their hands and feet. She built also a great hospital for the suffering and starving poor.

After husband died (on his way to the Holy War, on the eleventh day of September, 1227.) Then Elizabeth, more utterly to be God's only, laid aside all the garments of earthly state, clad herself in mean raiment, and entered the Third Order of St Francis, wherein she was a burning and shining light of longsuffering and lowliness. (Her brotherin-law) stripped her (and her three little children) of all their goods, and turned them out of their own house. She was deserted by all, and assailed with insults, gibes, and calumnies, but she bore it all with patience, yea, even rejoicing that she suffered such things for God's sake. She gave herself to the meanest services toward the poor and sick, and sought for them the needfuls of life, while she lived herself only on potherbs and vegetables.

In these and many other holy works she prayerfully passed the rest of her life, till (in the twenty-fourth year of her age,) the end of her earthly pilgrimage came, as she had already foretold to her servants. With her eyes fixed on heaven, absorbed in the thought of God, by Him wondrously comforted, and strengthened by the Sacraments, she fell asleep in the Lord, (upon the 19th day of November, in the year of salvation 1231. ) Forthwith many miracles were wrought at her grave, which being known and duly proved, Gregory IX. numbered her name among those of the Saints. (Matins, The Divine Office, Feast of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary.)

Dom Prosper Gueranger summarized the life of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary as follows in The Liturgical Year:

Although the blessed in heaven shine each with his own peculiar glory, God is pleased to group them in families, as he groups the stars in the material firmament. It is grace that presides over the arrangement of these constellations in the heaven of the saints; but sometimes it seems as if God wished to remind us that He is the sole Author of both grace and nature; and inviting them, in spite of the fall, to honour Him unitedly in His elect. He causes sanctity to become a glorious heirloom, handed down from generation to generation in the same family on earth. Among these races none can compare with that royal line which, beginning in ancient Pannomia, spread its branches over the world in the most flourishing days of Christendom: ‘Rich in virtue and studying beautifulness’, as Scripture says, it brought peace to all the royal houses of Europe with which it was allied; and the many names it has inscribed in the golden boo of the blessed perpetuate its glory.

Among these illustrious names, and surrounded by them as a diamond set in a circle of pearls, the greatest, in the esteem of the Church and of the people, is that of the amiable saint, who was ripe for heaven at the age of twenty-four years, and who ascended on this day into the company of Stephen, Emeric, and Ladislas. Elizabeth was not inferior to them in manly virtues; but the simplicity of her loving soul added to the heroism of her race a sweetness, whose fragrance drew after her along the path of sanctity her daughter Gertrude of Thuringia, and her relatives Hedwige of Silesia, Agnes of Bohemia, Margaret of Hungary, Cunigund of Poland, and Elizabeth of Portugal.

All the poetry of those chivalrous times appears in the beautiful pages of contemporaneous writers, as they describe to us the innocent child transplanted like a tender flower from the court of Hungary to that of Thuringia; and her life of devotedness there, with a bridegroom worthy to witness the ecstasies of her lofty but ingenuous piety and to defend her heroic virtue against her slanderers. To the stewards who complained that during the absence of Duke Lewis she had, in spite of their remonstrances, exhausted the revenues upon the poor, he replied, ‘I desire that my Elizabeth be at liberty to act as she wishes, provided she leaves me Wartburg and Naumburg.’ Our Lord opened the landgrave’s eyes to see transformed into beautiful roses the provisions Elizabeth was carrying to the poor. Jesus crucified appeared in the leper she had taken into her own apartments that she might the better tend him. If it happened that illustrious visitors arrived unexpectedly, and the duchess having bestowed all her jewels in alms was unable to adorn herself becomingly to do them honour, the angels so well supplied the deficiency that, according to the German chroniclers of the time, it seemed to the astonished guests that the queen of France herself could not have appeared more strikingly beautiful or more richly attired.

Elizabeth indeed was never wanting to any of the obligations or requirements of her position as a wife and as a sovereign princess. As graciously simple in her virtues as she was affable to all, she could not understand the gloomy moroseness which some affected in their prayers and austerities. ‘They look as if they wanted to frighten our Lord,’ she would say, ‘whereas He loves the cheerful giver.’

The time soon came when he herself had to give generously without counting the cost. First there was the cruel separation from her husband, Duke Lewis, on his departure for the crusade; then the heartening scene when his death was announced to her, just as she was about to give birth to their fourth child; and thirdly the atrocious act of Henry Raspon, the landgrave’s unworthy brother, who, thinking this a good opportunity for seizing the deceased’s estates, drove out his widow and children and forbade anyone to give them hospitality. Then, in the very land where every misery had been succoured by her charity, Elizabeth was reduced to the necessity of begging, and not without many rebuffs, a little bread for her poor children, and of seeking shelter with them in a pigsty.

On the return of the knights who had accompanied Duke Lewis to the Holy Land, justice was at length done to our saint. But Elizabeth, who had become the passionate lover of holy poverty, chose to remain among the poor. She was the first professed Tertiary of the Seraphic Order; and the mantle sent by St. Francis to his very dear daughter became her own only treasure. The path of perfect self-renunciation soon brought her to the threshold of heaven. She who, twenty years before, had been carried to her betrothed in a silver cradle and robed in silk and gold, now took her flight to God from a wretched hovel, her only garment being a patched gown. The minstrels, whose gay competitions had signalized the year of her birth, were no longer there; but the angels were heard singing, as they bore her up to heaven: ‘The kingdom of this world have I despised for the love of Jesus Christ my Lord, whom I have seen, whom I have loved, in whom I have believed, whom I have tenderly loved.’

Four years later, Elizabeth, now declared a saint by the Vicar of Christ, behold all the nations of the holy Empire, with the emperor himself at their head, hastening to Marburg, where she lay at rest in the midst of the poor whose life she had imitated. Her holy body was committed to the care of the Teutonic Knights, who in return for the honour made Marburg one of the headquarters of their Order, and raised to her name the first Gothic church in Germany. Numerous miracles long attracted the Christian world to the spot.

And now, though still standing, though still beautiful in its mourning, St. Elizabeth’s at Marburg knows it glorious title only by name. And at Wartburg, where the dear saint went through the sweetest episodes of her life as a child and as a bride, the great memorial now shown to the traveller is the pulpit of an excommunicated friar, and the inkstain with which, in a fit of folly or drunkenness, he had soiled the wall, as he afterwards endeavoured with his pen to profane and sully everything in the Church of God. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year: Time After Pentecost, Book VI, pp. 295-298.)

That friar, of course, was none other than the hideous heretic named Father Martin Luther, O.S.A., who has been praised by the conciliar “popes,” including, of course, the “restorer of tradition,” Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio (see  and .)

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary embraced a life of asceticism as she, disdaining her royal privileges and accepting the injustices visited upon her by her mother-in-law and brothers-in-law, preferred to store up treasures in Heaven by her service to the poor and her humble acceptance of suffering for the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ Crucified. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was humble and devout.

The hideous drunkard and lecher named Martin Luther was filled with pride and impiety, which are the exact same curses that afflicted each of the conciliar "popes."

May we make our own Dom Prosper Gueranger’s prayer to Saint Elizabeth of Hungary:

What a lesson thou leavest to the earth as thou mounted up to heaven. O blessed Elizabeth! We ask with the Church for ourselves and for all our brethren in the faith: may thy glorious prayers obtain from the God of mercy that our hearts may open to the light of thy life’s teaching, so that despising worldly prosperity we may rejoice in heavenly consolations. The Gospel read in thy honour to-day tells us that the kingdom of heaven is like to a hidden treasure, and to a precious pearl. Thou didst well understand this ‘good traffic,’ as the Epistle calls it, and it became the good fortune of all around thee: of thy happy subjects, who received from thee succour and assistance for both soul and body; of thy noble husband, who found an honourable place among those princes who knew how to exchange a perishable diadem for an eternal crown; in a word, all who belonged to thee. Thou wast their boast; and several among them followed in thy footsteps along the heavenward path of self-renunciation. How is it that others, in an age of destruction, could abjure their title of children of saints, and draw the people after them to deal so wantonly with the sweetest memorials and the noblest traditions? May our Lord restore to His Church and to thee the country where thou didst experience His love; may thy supplications, united with ours, revive the ancient faith in those branches of thy stock, which are no longer nourished with that life-giving sap; and may thy glorious trunk continue, in its faithful branches, to give saints to the world. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year: Time After Pentecost, Book VI,pp. 301-302.)

It might be a very good idea to send this prayer to a man is perhaps even more hideous and irresponsible than was Martin Luther, namely, Jorge Mario Bergoglio himself.

More importantly, of course, we need to invoke the heavenly intercession of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary every day so that we can have a happy reconciliation in heaven with all of those from whom we may be estranged, perhaps irreparably so, in this life because of the state of the world and the state of the Church Militant on earth in this time of apostasy and betrayal.


We would do well today to pray a Rosary in honor of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary as we ask the Queen of the Friars Minor, Our Lady herself, to exhibit the love of the Most Sacred Heart of her Divine Son that was exhibited so perfectly by Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who now rests in the abode of that same Sacred Heart as she, Saint Elizabeth, gives praise to the Heart out of which It was formed, the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Event Update For 2019-11-30


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Anine Bing — founder and chief creative officer, Anine Bing


For episode 46 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with one of the most fashionable women on the planet, Anine Bing

In October 2019, Anine was in Sydney to celebrate the opening of the first Anine Bing Australia store in Paddington, marking the 15th opening since she started the brand from her LA garage in 2012.

What we learn in this episode, is Anine’s success story is one born from humble beginnings, hard work and a dedication to exploring and expressing her creativity. 

Anine grew up in a small village in Sweden of just 8,000 people, and by 15, she’d already travelled the world as a model. It was those early, more nomadic days, that shaped the Anine Bing brand we know and love today. 

Anine shares her journey from modelling to music (she started a rock band in her early twenties called Kill Your Darlings), then blogging, and how she leveraged her Instagram following to start her own now-global fashion company. 

She also shares the key roles she brought in along the way, her early creative process, how it has evolved with the brand’s “see now, buy now” model, her reflections on motherhood, her relationship with her phone and what she does to find some calm within her big and busy life.

Accurate Brazing Adds Second HIP

Accurate Brazing, a Goffstown, NH-based provider of specialized heat treating solutions for the aerospace and power-generation industries, and other sectors, has added a second hot isostatic pressing (HIP) press from Sweden-based Quintus Technologies. The presses, both model QIH 122 M URC, come equipped with a uniform rapid cooling (URC) feature, which combines HIP and heat treatment in a high-pressure heat treatment (HPHT) process. HPHT streamlines the steps involved in material densification and heat treatment and enables all processed components to cool uniformly, resulting in minimal thermal distortion and non-uniform grain growth. The new press will be part of Accurate Brazing’s newest facility in Greenville, SC.

The Site consists of a shallow, freshwater bay, fringed by reedbeds at the south-west end of Lake Vänern. The nutrient-rich waters support abundant plankton and are regarded as one of the most important spawning areas in Sweden for the pike-perch Lucioperca lucioperca. The Site was extended in November 2001 to include part of the River Nossan, which is important for spawning asp (Aspius aspius). It also holds an outstanding variety of plant species, with its grazed pastures and shore lines supporting a rich annual flora. Dättern is an important breeding and resting place for birds such as nationally endangered Eurasian penduline tit Remiz pendulinus and the nationally vulnerable spotted crake Porzana Porzana. Human activities include livestock grazing and fishing. Maintaining traditional grazing is essential for maintaining the ecological character of the meadows. 208 hectares of wet meadow have been restored, which has enhanced breeding conditions for birds within the Site. There is a management plan for each of the two nature reserves and a conservation plan for the Natura 2000 Site. An observation platform can be found.

The endgame of the converged church

In case you're not certain precisely the nature of the force behind the push for women in the post-Christian pulpits:
A church in Malmo has a new altarpiece meant to celebrate inclusivity by replacing Adam and Eve in paradise with gay couples in suggestive poses, while depicting the serpent tempting them as a transgender woman.

The controversial work of art is not new. Photographer and artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin painted it in 2012 and tried to donate it to the Skara Cathedral just before the church was preparing to conduct the first same-sex wedding in its 1,000-year history.

The openly lesbian artist, who has a history of blending religious imagery with pro-minority activism, said at the time that she wanted to test if the Church of Sweden was as gay-friendly as it claimed to be when it embraced same-sex marriage in 2009. The Skara Cathedral politely declined the gift, saying it was about political activism and not faith.

But over seven years have passed, and now Wallin has got her way, even if it isn’t in her home city. St. Paul’s Church in Malmo accepted the painting called “Paradise” as its new altarpiece and unveiled it on Sunday, the first day of Advent. Helena Myrstener, the pastor, said that “history was written” in the hanging of the “LGBT altarpiece” as she tweeted a photo of the painting.
We don't have to understand why God tells us one thing is acceptable while another is not. But if we pay attention, we can often glean at least a modicum of understanding of the reason underlying His prohibitions.

This should also make it clear that tolerance, equality, diversity, and inclusivity are not virtues, but rather evils conceived to lure Man to destruction.

Spain Might Be The World’s Most Important Climate Test

A woman holds a placard reading

At the start of this year, Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez became the first major world leader to endorse the idea of a “Green New Deal,” adopting the slogan U.S. Democrats have popularized over the last year for his plan to transition fossil fuel workers to new jobs.

Now, as Madrid prepares to host the United Nations’ 25th Conference of the Parties following Chile’s abrupt decision to back out amid fiery protests over inequality, Sánchez’s government is offering an alternative vision of what it might look like to close the income gap and lower emissions at once. That will be on full display this week as world leaders hash out plans to meet the 2015 Paris Agreement’s goals, and under the terms of the pact, consider more ambitious targets. 

On the face of it, Europe’s fifth-largest economy makes a sweeping industrial policy to curb emissions and expand the public sector look like good politics. In April, Sánchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party, or PSOE, won reelection, even picking up votes in the coal-producing region where, just months earlier, his government shuttered most of the country’s remaining mines. 

It was a narrow victory and, without a majority in Parliament, the Sánchez administration was forced to call another snap election last month. The Socialists again eked out a slim win, and this time agreed to form a coalition with Unidos Podemos, a party to its left. If Sánchez’s center-left vision of a Green New Deal could be criticized for not being ambitious enough, the inclusion of the anti-austerity Podemos could make the country the first to seriously attempt the kind of Green New Deal progressives elsewhere have laid out to curb soaring economic inequality and planet-heating emissions. 

Green New Dealers on both sides of the Atlantic argue that addressing both crises at once is key to staving off a resurgent neo-fascist right wing. Vox, a far-right party openly nostalgic for Franco-era Spanish authoritarianism, surged from zero to 24 parliamentary seats last April. November’s election brought that total to 52, making it the third-largest party in Spain. 

But, even with a new left flank in the governing coalition, experts say the chances of making transformative changes are slim, thanks to the European Union’s rules on spending and public ownership. It’ll be a test for how much effectively the Green New Deal can beat back the far right while still confined by what one researcher called the “straitjacket of austerity.” 

Climate On The Backburner

The devastating heat wave in Western Europe this summer roasted Spain. At least two Spaniards ― an 80-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy ― died as weather stations across the country documented record June temperatures. Seven stations recorded their hottest temperatures ever. The worst wildfires in decades, meanwhile, scorched nearly 13,000 acres in the northeastern province of Catalonia.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and Unidas Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias shake hands during a news conference on Nov. 12. 

It’s a glimpse, scientists say, of the years to come as the planet heats up. The latest United Nations climate report found the world needs to reduce emissions 7.6% every year from 2020 to 2030 to keep warming within the 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit range, beyond which projections show catastrophic effects on food systems, freshwater supplies and coastal cities. Yet emissions from fossil fuels alone grew by nearly 2% last year to hit a record high. That figure looks set to soar, as current forecasts show the world’s top 10 fossil-fuel-producing countries plan to extract 120% more oil, gas and coal than is consistent with keeping warming in a safe range.

Between 1990 and 2017, Spain’s emissions grew by 17.9%, even as the European Union’s fell on average 23.5% during the same period, according to a bloc-wide report. More vehicles on the road and increased production of electricity and heating drove the spike. Spain is Europe’s second-largest carmaker and biggest importer of liquefied natural gas in the European Union.  

The spike in emissions reflected efforts to rev Spain’s beleaguered economy, which last year grew by 3%, faster than France or Germany. In 2017, 90% of new jobs in the country were temporary, with a third lasting less than three weeks, according to The New York Times. This year, the unemployment hovered at about 14.2% all year. It was the lowest in a decade, and down from a 2013 peak of 27%. But the rate was still more than double the European Union average. 

The Sánchez administration’s efforts have been largely focused on triage. The government started the year with an unprecedented 22% hike to the minimum wage. After Parliament rejected his budget, Sánchez called a snap election in April, where the Green New Deal debuted as a platform issue. 

PAID FOR BY Happy Family Organics

In November’s election, the issue once again took a backseat. Sánchez pivoted away from climate, pitching the Socialists as the best chance at stability as tensions erupted over Catalonia’s attempted independence vote, Britain’s exit from the European Union and a slowing economy. Podemos veered left, campaigning on structural critiques of the market economy itself, said Riccardo Mastini, an environmental policy researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

“The Green New Deal sounded like too reformist an idea,” Mastini said. “So they preferred to talk about capitalism as the issue.”

Más País, a new ecosocialist party formed as a green breakaway from Podemos, made the most vibrant appeal to climate voters. But it only won three seats in the Parliament. 

“It’s not easy to see how the green agenda on its own has a real sell to Spaniards,” said Victor Lapuente, a Spanish political expert and professor at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. 

The Denialist Right

Vox’s official party line, meanwhile, is that anthropogenic climate change is “una tomadura de pelo” ― a term roughly translating to “a joke.” In September, all parties in the Spanish Parliament except Vox voted to declare a state of emergency over the climate crisis. Rocío Monasterio, Vox’s leader in Madrid, celebrated the schism within Podemos that gave rise to Más País as a potential opportunity to peel off left-wing voters. 

It’s not a unique position. Despite 97% of peer-reviewed climate science indicating humans’ emissions are the primary cause of warming, and significant flaws in the other 3%, the conspiracy theory rejecting that reality has remained a consistent talking point on the far right. President Donald Trump in the United States and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro are among the most powerful adherents to the belief. 

Supporters of Spain's far-right party Vox wave flags in Madrid during the Spanish election in November. 

Yet some of the European far-right parties that back Vox are starting to shift away from denialism. Following Green parties’ surge in April’s European parliamentary elections, the far-right Alternative for Germany’s youth wing in Berlin conceded that climate moves “more people than we thought” and urged its party leaders to abandon the “difficult to understand statement that mankind does not influence the climate.”

France’s National Rally vowed in April to make a “Europe of nations” the “world’s first ecological civilization.” Its leader, Marine Le Pen, claimed those “rooted in their home” are “ecologist,” and suggested “nomadic” people “do not care about the environment; they have no homeland,” alluding to Nazi-era blood-and-soil myths about ethnic ties to geography.

French President Emmanuel Macron’s market-friendly efforts to curb emissions have done little to quell the forces driving Le Pen. In fact, his bid to raise gas taxes last year ignited a fiery protest movement that arguably created an opening for Le Pen’s newfound climate populism. 

Vox rode a different political wave to power, surging in polls after taking a hardline stance against Catalonia’s chaotic vote to secede last year, vowing to rein in decentralized Spanish regional governments and crush autonomist movements. But the party shares the same anti-immigrant rhetoric and romantic view of authoritarianism that nearly propelled Le Pen to the presidency in 2017 and handed a stunning electoral sweep to white nationalist Dutch party Forum for Democracy this spring. 

“They share the same cause if not the same symptom, which is a shared feeling that the government ― whether it’s in Spain or whether it’s in France ― has failed to deliver fundamentally for the needs of citizens around the country,” said David Adler, a policy coordinator at the think tank Democracy in Europe Movement 2025. 

Resistance In Brussels 

The problem, Adler said, is that “the Spanish government, like the French government, has been unable and unwilling to challenge the restraints on investments” put in place by the European Union. 

The 1992 Maastricht Treaty that established a transnational government on the continent and laid the groundwork for a single currency poses significant hurdles to left-wing Green New Deal proposals like bringing more industries under public ownership. While European law does not necessarily bar member nations from nationalizing the energy sector or creating a public bank, European Court of Justice precedents could stymie or reverse such efforts.

If you’re looking for Spain to engage in massive fiscal stimulus through a big Green New Deal, I’m sorry to say that’s not likely to happen.Robert Fishman, a political science professor at Carlos III University in Madrid

Under the rules outlined in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, member states cannot run a budget deficit exceeding 3% of gross domestic product or rack up a public debt greater than 60% of GDP. With a nearly 98% debt-to-GDP ratio, Spain’s government has little wiggle room to take out loans to pay for the Green New Deal program. 

“If you’re looking for Spain to engage in massive fiscal stimulus through a big Green New Deal, I’m sorry to say that’s not likely to happen,” said Robert Fishman, a political science professor at Carlos III University in Madrid. “It’s not so much because of a lack of commitment on the green and environmental front, but because of the resistance the government will encounter from European institutions.”

The United States, with control over its own currency and a much larger economy, would still be the easiest place to enact a Green New Deal. (And, as the world’s second-largest emitter, it would also have the biggest impact.) The United Kingdom could offer another potential test if the Labour Party wins in this month’s election and completes its so-called Brexit, making it easier to implement the sweeping Green New Deal proposal party leader Jeremy Corbyn put forward without interference from officials in Brussels, the Belgian city where the European Union’s bureaucracy is based.

Spokeswomen for the European Commission did not respond to an email requesting comment. 

The fight now appears to be headed toward supranational level. Adler’s group is set to unveil a new proposal next week for what a progressive Green New Deal at the European Commission would look like. It’s an alternative to the “green deal” European Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen, a conservative German politician, made a central plank of her platform. Though the name borrows two of the three words in the Green New Deal slogan, Adler said the proposal slaps a fresh coat of paint on the European Union’s investor-centered status quo, “giving a face to the world that suggests a deep and profound commitment to a just transition while maintaining a firm attachment to some of its most unjust economic policies.” 

“The European Commission has been very successful over the past five years at greenwashing austerity,” he said. “We have very little confidence that the so-called ‘green deal’ resembles anything like a Green New Deal and would create a space for governments ― no matter how far left ― in Spain to deliver on the promise it has made to Spanish voters.”
