Black-Listed Documentary Banned in Europe on History of Child Trafficking in Switzerland Premieres Online

 Cache   
5 years in the making and black-listed in Europe, filmmaker Omar Agustoni along with co-producer Neal Sutz has just released the documentary, Trees of Shame, which premiered online November 24, 2019. The film documents the history of child trafficking in Switzerland through Child Protective Services and the Juvenile Court system, with riveting interviews of former and current victims. According to the history of the International Social Service (ISS), today's "Child Protection" child welfare system which exists in most Western countries, originated in Switzerland just after WWI in 1920 in an effort to deal with "displaced" children, or "orphans." The headquarters was established in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1924, and the U.S. branch was established in New York City in 1926. During the Great Depression, the Social Security Act established under President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 allocated funds to establish child welfare programs throughout the U.S., and is the birth of modern Child Protection Service agencies nationwide. While Simonetta Sommaruga, former President of Switzerland and the current Vice President, allegedly apologized for past crimes of child trafficking against the Swiss people by the Swiss government in April of 2013, where many of these children labeled "orphans" were trafficked as child laborers, much like the old "orphan trains" in the U.S. back in the mid 1800s, Trees of Shame documents how these crimes of child trafficking still happen today. This is similar to what is happening in the U.S. today, as we have documented for the past 5 years at Health Impact News on our MedicalKidnap.com website, where the modern day Foster Care system is a massive multi-billion dollar child trafficking system. Trees of Shame can be rented and viewed online at: http://www.treesofshame.is/

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.

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. The lavender is subtle, and the tangerine is earthy, and the geranium ties it together very nicely.

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!" Up until somewhat recently, eugenics movements in the United States sterilized handicapped patients to avoid having to deal with their sexuality. 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.

After I have completed my project building a single clock using stepper motors (see " DIY Stepper Motor Clock with NXP LPC845-BRK "), I wanted to build a special one that was able to show up in four different time zones.

Mỹ sẽ cứu Hong Kong theo cách của Donald Trump

 Cache   
BM
Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong được đưa ra vào tháng 6/2019 bởi Thượng nghị sĩ đảng Cộng hòa Marco Rubio, dân biểu đảng Dân chủ Jim Mc Govern và dân biểu đảng Cộng hòa Chris Smith cùng các nhà đồng tài trợ khác của Lưỡng đảng.

Dự luật trên đã được Hạ viện biểu quyết thông qua vào hôm thứ Ba, ngày 15/10/2019, hiện tại, dự luật này đang nằm ở Thượng viện. 

Một dự án luật ở Mỹ để trở thành Đạo luật sẽ mất nhiều thời gian và có thể sẽ không được Thượng viện thông qua khi quá trình tranh cãi cho kết quả bên phủ quyết chiếm đa số và không bị Tổng thông phủ quyết - VETO.

Ở Mỹ, trung bình mỗi năm có gần chục ngàn dự án luật được các nghị sĩ đệ trình trước Lưỡng viện Quốc hội. Tuy nhiên, số dự án luật được chính thức thông qua chỉ vào khoảng 125-400. Một dự án luật để được trở thành Đạo luật thường phải trải qua 7 bước căn bản sau:

BM
  
1. Bước 1: Khởi thảo ý tưởng xây dựng luật;
2. Bước 2: Chính thức giới thiệu 1 dự luật;
3. Bước 3. Giai đoạn Ủy ban và tiểu Ủy ban;
4. Bước 4. Cân nhắc bởi toàn thể Hạ viện;
5. Bước 5. Bỏ phiếu ở Hạ viện;
6. Bước 6: Giai đoạn ở Thượng viện và việc lập Ủy ban liên hợp;
7. Bước 7: Bỏ phiếu ở Thượng viện;
8. Bước 8: Quyết định của tổng thống.

Một dự luật được chuyển tới tay tổng thống khi dự luật nhận được sự đồng thuận của cả Hạ viện và Thượng viện dưới hình thức tuyệt đối giống nhau thì dự luật mới được chuyển cho Tổng thống xem xét, quyết định phủ quyết hay ký ban hành.

BM
  
Tại Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong, qua theo dõi và phân tách, cá nhân nhận thấy có những điểm bất thường như sau:

1. Về thời gian hoàn tất các khâu để Dự luật được Hạ viện thông qua: Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong được đưa ra vào tháng 6/2019 và đến ngày 15/10/2019 thì nó đã được Hạ viện của bà Nancy Pelosy biểu quyết thông qua. Trong khi đó các dự án luật do cơ quan hành pháp đệ trình như Hiệp định thương mại USMCA chẳng hạn thì bị Hạ viện của bà Nancy Pelosy tìm cách câu giờ, trì hoãn dù rằng USMCA là quyền lợi sát sườn, trực tiếp cho người dân Mỹ.

2. Những điểm bất lợi cho công cuộc đánh sập nền kinh tế của Tàu cộng mà Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong gây ra: Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong được chia thành 10 mục, trong đó có 2 mục mang nội dung "làm khó" công cuộc đánh sập nền kinh tế của Tàu cộng trong ngắn hạn đó là mục số 5 về việc "Báo cáo thường niên về thực thi luật kiểm soát xuất cảng và trừng phạt của Mỹ bởi Hong Kong" và mục số 9 về việc áp dụng "Biện pháp tài chính bởi Hong Kong".

BM

Hong Kong là trung tâm giữ vai trò trung gian trong việc thu hút đầu tư nước ngoài vào Tàu cộng và cũng là trung tâm trung chuyển tài sản từ Tàu cộng ra nước ngoài của giới tư sản đỏ Tàu cộng. Khi Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong được thông qua thành Đạo luật thì Hong Kong sẽ bị Mỹ trừng phạt, lúc này dòng vốn đầu tư từ nước ngoài vào Tàu cộng sẽ bị chặn lại đồng thời dòng tài sản của giới tư sản đỏ từ Tàu cộng tháo chạy ra nước ngoài theo cửa ngõ tài chính Hong Kong cũng bị chặn lại, điều này dẫn tới một kết quả "lợi bất cập hại" trong quyết tâm của tổng thống Donald Trump là "đánh sập nền kinh tế của Tàu cộng - xóa sổ CNXH quái thai".

Bởi vì hiện nay, trước các đòn thuế quan khốc liệt của Mỹ áp đặt lên hàng hóa của Tàu cộng cũng như lời kêu gọi các nhà đầu tư Mỹ ở Tàu cộng rút khỏi Tàu cộng trở về Mỹ đang phát huy tác dụng, góp phần hủy hoại nền kinh tế của Tàu cộng thì việc ngăn chặn đầu tư từ nước ngoài vào Tàu cộng mà Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong được Hạ viện khởi xướng sẽ chỉ là "thực phẩm chức năng" chớ không phải là "thuốc trị bịnh" bởi vì không có Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong thì các nhà đầu tư Mỹ ở Tàu cộng cũng đã và đang tháo chạy khỏi Tàu cộng bởi thương chiến Mỹ - Tàu cộng do tổng thống Donald Trump phát động, đeo đuổi tới cùng.

BM

Mục đích phát động và đeo đuổi cuộc thương chiến Mỹ - Tàu cộng của tổng thống Donald Trump là:

·        Ngưng cấp máu cho Tàu cộng bằng cách ngăn chặn đầu tư từ Mỹ vào Tàu cộng;

·        Rút cạn máu Tàu cộng bằng cách buộc các nhà đầu tư nước ngoài ở Tàu cộng phải tháo chạy khỏi Tàu cộng;

·        Dùng đòn thuế quan và đe dọa trừng phạt Tàu cộng để vẽ lên một viễn cảnh "Tàu cộng sẽ tồi tệ hơn Bắc Hàn" nhằm làm cho giới giàu có ở Tàu cộng tìm cách tẩu tán tài sản ra nước ngoài để lánh nạn mà Hong Kong là con đường tẩu tán tài sản ra nước ngoài lý tưởng nhứt trong sự lựa chọn của giới giàu có Tàu cộng.

Nếu để ý một chút sẽ thấy tại sao Tàu cộng đang suy trầm bởi tác động của trade war nhưng sàn giao dịch chứng khoán của Hong Kong lại vượt mặt Nhật Bản để vươn lên vị trí thứ 3, chỉ xếp sau sàn chứng khoán New York, London với vốn hóa gần 1,8 ngàn tỷ Mỹ Kim trong những tháng đầu năm 2019.

Và nếu để ý tương tự thì sẽ nhận ra một sự bất thường là trong lúc Hong Kong bất ổn trầm trọng thì Alibaba, một tập đoàn thương mại điện tử hàng đầu của Tàu cộng do tài phiệt đỏ Jack Ma làm chủ mà Jack Ma là một đảng viên cộng sản ưu tú của Tàu cộng lại quyết định niêm yết cổ phiếu tại Hong Kong từ ngày 26/11/2019 với hy vọng sẽ huy động được tới 13,4 tỷ Mỹ kim.

Và nếu để ý một chút nữa thì sẽ không khó ngạc nhiên khi Tàu cộng vừa quyết định cắt giảm lãi suất cho vay lần đầu tiên kể từ năm 2015.

BM

Với những ai am tường về kinh tế - chính trị chắc chắn sẽ không khó nhận ra những bất thường trên. Riêng với cá nhân thì tất cả những bất thường trên đều có chung một mục đích là "phản kháng lại quyết sách đánh sập nền kinh tế Tàu cộng - xóa sổ cnxh quái thai" của tổng thống Donald Trump mà kẻ thực thi là Tàu cộng kết hợp với đảng Dân chủ Mỹ. Chỉ cần quý vị đọc những thông tin dưới đây:

1. Theo thông tin từ Union Bank of Switzerland - nhà băng đầu tư đa quốc gia và công ty dịch vụ tài chính của Thụy Sĩ, viết tắt là UBS thì: Trong năm 2018 uớc tính có 324 tỷ Mỹ kim đã được chuyển khỏi Tàu cộng để tránh "mất vốn" do kinh tế Tàu cộng suy trầm bởi tác động của chiến tranh thương mại Mỹ - Tàu cộng;

2. Theo Goldman Sachs thì chỉ trong 3 tuần sau khi nước này phá giá nội tệ hồi tháng 8/2019 đã có 200 tỷ Mỹ kim rời biên giới Tàu cộng.

BM
  
Điều mà ông Trump muốn nhìn thấy là tài sản của giới tài phiệt đỏ Tàu cộng phải rời khỏi Tàu cộng chạy ra nước ngoài và điều này cũng là nổi kinh hoàng của Tàu cộng bởi vì đây là hiện tượng "mất máu cấp tính" nền kinh tế - tài chính của Tàu cộng nhưng lại là mảnh đất màu mỡ để Nước Mỹ tung ra các lịnh trừng phạt theo Đạo luật về nhân quyền Magnitsky toàn cầu của nước Mỹ.

Vì lẽ đó nên Tàu cộng đã xúi giục đảng Dân chủ Mỹ khẩn trương ban hành và sớm thông qua Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong để cứu vãn nạn "mất máu cấp tính" nền kinh tế - tài chính của Tàu cộng như mục 5, mục 9 của dự luật đã được phân tách ở trên.

Bởi vì theo luật pháp của Tàu cộng, mỗi người dân Tàu cộng chỉ được phép chuyển ra nước ngoài 50.000 Mỹ kim mỗi năm. Vì vậy, để mang được số tiền lớn như trên qua biên giới, theo Bloomberg thì dân Tàu cộng có 6 cách để làm là:

·         Thông qua quầy đổi tiền ở Hong Kong;
·         Xài "cheque - séc" của các nhà băng không chính thức;
·        Mang tiền trong vali;
·        Chia nhỏ tiền và thuê nhiều người mang;
·        Vay mua nhà ở nước ngoài bằng tiền gởi ở Tàu cộng;
·        Thanh toán bằng thẻ tín dụng hay ghi nợ, sau đó trả lại hàng để lấy tiền mặt.

Tất cả 6 cách mang tiền ra khỏi Tàu cộng đều có một điểm trung chuyển duy nhất là Hong Kong vì Hong Kong có cơ chế tài chính liên thông với Tàu cộng và việc mang tiền từ Tàu cộng sang Hong Kong không bị định nghĩa theo luật pháp là mang tiền ra khỏi biên giới của Tàu cộng.

Như vậy, bề ngoài đảng Dân chủ và bà Nancy Pelosy tỏ ra sốt sắng ủng hộ Hong Kong nhưng thực chất chỉ là cái trò "mèo khóc chuột" khi đảng Dân chủ cài bẫy Donald Trump tại một số mục trong cái Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong. Bởi vì nếu Thượng viện thông qua nguyên si cái Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong thì ông Trump sẽ bị phá sản quyết tâm đánh sập nền kinh tế của Tàu cộng, bởi vì:

BM
  
1. Nếu Donald Trump ký ban hành Đạo luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong thì chính quyền của ông ta phải thực thi ngay mục số 5 về việc "Báo cáo thường niên về thực thi luật kiểm soát xuất cảng và trừng phạt của Mỹ bởi Hong Kong" và mục số 9 về việc áp dụng "Biện pháp tài chính bởi Hong Kong". Mỹ thực thi điều này thì đã vô tình giúp cho Tàu cộng chống được căn bịnh "mất máu cấp tính" nền kinh tế - tài chính của Tàu cộng.

2. Nếu ông Trump phủ quyết Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong thì ông Trump sẽ bị đảng Dân chủ và hệ thống Fake News hùng hậu mắng nhiếc ông là người vô nhân tính vì "đã quay lưng với nổi đau của Hong Kong để chăm chút cho cái ghế tổng thống của mình".

Tàu cộng đã phản đòn Donald Trump bằng cách xúi giục Carrie Lam đàn áp dã man người biểu tình Hong Kong để kích hoạt Dự luật nhân quyền và dân chủ Hong Kong do đảng Dân chủ Mỹ khởi xướng, thông qua với những cái bẫy chông đặt vào trong cái dự luật đó. 

BM

Hong Kong đã trở thành đấu trường chính trị giữa Donald Trump với Tàu cộng liên thủ với đảng Dân chủ Mỹ. Gậy ông đập lưng ông là đòn đánh sở trường trên võ đài chính trị. Ở đấu trường chính trị Hong Kong, với tài trí, đức độ của mình, tin chắc rằng Ông Trump lại một lần nữa giành chiến thắng bằng cách vẫn sớm cứu được Hong Kong nhưng vẫn không sập bẫy của Tàu cộng và đảng Con Lừa.

Ateiggär - Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt (2019)

 Cache   

cover

Unleashing a very retro sounding Black Metal EP, today we have Switzerland’s Ateiggär and their debut EP “Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt”. Affiliated with the Helvetic Underground Committee from Switzerland, this two man entity brings back the mood and sounds of the 90’s from bands like Limbonic Art and Tartaros. For nearly 30 minutes, this release transports us to the early days of the second wave of Black Metal thanks to its ingenious soundscapes and upbeat compositions.

After the traditional mood setting intro, “Und d Korybante tanzed in Sturm” leads the way with dramatic atmospheric arrangements and punishing distorted guitars. The track sounds and feels retro, but well produced, perfectly balancing the rawness of the vocals and the craftiness of the music, particularly the piercing bass guitar line. As the album title track rolls by, we are instantly hooked on the epic vibe produced by the Immortal-esque melodic guitars and lush atmospherics. The track’s crafty tempo changes create a very catchy and enjoyable track that is perfect for headbanging.

Those looking for heavier and faster music, “En Blinde namens Duracotus” is the perfect track for this , thanks to its intense drumming. The two members behind this release are experts in creating unique melodies that intertwine with each other as the track progresses, making each song quite diverse and enjoyable. Closing with the fury of “De Dämon us Levania”, the band ends the EP on a high note thanks to the intricate guitar work and funky vocal arrangements of the later stages of this song.

As a whole, “Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt” is one hell of a lively EP filled with great ideas and excellent musicianship. If you are a fan of old-school Black Metal and are looking for something that is timeless and also has a modern kick to it, look no further: Ateiggär is the band for you. Formed in 2019, it is quite impressive that a band has a first release of this high quality.

Archbishop Lefebvre's November 21, 1974 Declaration

 Cache   

After the founding of the Society of Saint Pius X in Fribourg on November 1, 1970, and the opening of the seminary at Ecône, in the Valais, [Canton of Switzerland] calm still reigned despite some minor difficulties. From 1973, the situation was tense because Archbishop Lefebvre’s unshakeable position regarding the Mass. The bishop refused the Novus ordo, the liturgical reform of Paul VI, which he considered to be “poisoned,” as he would often say.

The attacks came first from France where the bishops were absolutely furious against the “wildcat seminary” which soon would provide a traditional clergy called to exercise an apostolate on French territory. While they were working behind the scenes, the situation was becoming strained in Switzerland as well. The new Bishop of Fribourg, Pierre Mamie, opposed the Society. Nestor Adam, Bishop of Sion, discouraged by the evolution of the crisis of the Church, no longer supported the foundation and distanced himself, even though he had accepted  opening Ecône in his diocese.

The storm finally fell on the work of priestly formation. It broke out abruptly on November 11, 1974, when Archbishop Lefebvre announced to the seminary community the arrival, on the same day, of two apostolic visitors. Sent by Pope Paul VI, they were mandated by three Roman congregations to inspect the seminary. They were Msgr. Albert Descamps, secretary of the Biblical Commission, and Msgr. Guillaume Onclin, under-secretary of the Commission for the Revision of the Code of Canon Law.

The visitors spent three days in Ecône questioning professors and seminarians. They made aberrant and scandalous theological remarks to them. “They thought the ordination of married men was normal and inevitable, they did not admit that truth is immutable, and they expressed doubts concerning the physical reality of Christ’s Resurrection.” They finally left, but without presenting any protocol or report of their visit to the superior of the Society.

Archbishop Lefebvre traveled to Rome on November 16th to visit some Congregations. But understanding that there nothing much to wait for, “in a moment of indignation,” as he would later say, he wrote in one go and without correction an admirable statement of his principles which he presented to the community on December 2nd. It would be the pretext for the persecution against Ecône and its founder.

This famous declaration has a history; it was composed by Bishop Marcel Lefebvre in a specific context.


          

UN: States Denounce Egypt’s Rights Record

 Cache   

The 36th Session of the Human Rights Council at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. 

© 2017 Reuters

(Geneva) – United Nations member countries offered strong criticism and scores of recommendations addressing Egypt’s human rights crisis at the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the Human Rights Council in Geneva on November 13, 2019, Human Rights Watch said today.

During the review, countries across all regions called on Egypt to end torture and ill-treatment, investigate crimes committed by security forces, allow nongovernmental organizations and activists to work independently, and protect human rights while countering terrorism. Many countries also said that Egypt should halt executions and review its laws to minimize or end the use of the death penalty. Several countries said that Egypt should take more serious measures to halt violence against women, including by criminalizing domestic violence and by prosecuting those responsible for female genital mutilation, which is still widely practiced.

“The strong criticism of Egypt from countries across the world shows the international community is waking up to the human rights crisis in Egypt,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “It’s important for these countries to follow-up with Egypt directly to take concrete measures to adopt their recommendations.”

Established in 2006, the Universal Periodic Review involves a comprehensive review of the human rights records of all UN member states by other countries in a rotation every four and a half years. Local and international organizations, as well as the country under review, have the opportunity to contribute reports to inform the review process.

Following each review, a group of three member states collaborate with the state under review, and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights will produce an “outcome report” that includes the recommendations presented and the responses of the state under review.

Egypt has several months to accept or reject the recommendations. The Human Right Council will adopt the UPR report, including the recommendations, at its session in March 2020. More than 130 countries offered 372 recommendations. Unlike previous UPR cycles, Egypt did not immediately accept any recommendations, and said it will use the time available to consider them. Egypt should accept all substantive recommendations to improve its human rights record, and UN experts, member states, and agencies should continue pressing Egypt to halt its violations, Human Rights Watch said.

Although Egypt accepted recommendations to improve its human rights record during previous UPR cycles, and promised several times to amend its laws to strictly prohibit and punish torture, the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has moved in the opposite direction. Since assuming office, the al-Sisi government has issued more laws that grant impunity for army and police officers and has generally failed to transparently investigate and prosecute serious human rights violations, including apparent crimes against humanity.

The head of the Egyptian government delegation, Omar Marwan, claimed during the November 13 review that “Egypt had exerted its utmost efforts for the past five years to implement the [earlier] recommendations.” In its previous review in 2014, Egypt accepted 224 out of 300 recommendations. However, the government carried out few of these recommendations and human rights violations have since dramatically escalated.

Countries at the Human Rights Council should continue to exert pressure on Egypt to reform its human rights record, including by expressing concerns through collective statements during upcoming sessions of the council in 2020.

Human Rights Watch made two submissions to the current review. A general submission examined the severe deterioration of human rights since Egypt’s last review in 2014 and a joint submission with the Egyptian Front for Human Rights, an independent Czech-based group, detailed war crimes and serious rights abuses by government forces and armed groups in North Sinai.

A few weeks before this review session, following nationwide anti-government protests that erupted on September 20, the Egyptian authorities rounded up over 4,300 people in one of the largest sweeps in the country since late 2013. The mass arrests included well-known figures and activists, and sometimes included their relatives.

Leading human rights activists in Egypt were not able to participate in the review session since the authorities have banned most of them from leaving the country for the past four years, and have relentlessly prosecuted them under criminal charges in violation of their basic rights and liberties.

In October, Gamal Eid, a leading rights activist and lawyer, was physically assaulted in Cairo by armed men under circumstances that indicate the involvement of state security agencies. That month, authorities also detained prominent human rights lawyer Mohamed al-Baqer. Egypt’s authorities have kept Ibrahim Ezz el-Din, a researcher with the Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedoms, in incommunicado detention since they arrested him in June.

“Egyptian authorities’ flagrant abuses only days before the UN review session shows the utter disregard this government has for human rights,” Stork said. “It will only act to uphold rights when other governments step up the pressure.”

1847: Switzerland had a Civil War similar to the America’s

The whole thing is not well-known in European history, but it is actually very interesting because it is reminiscent of the civil war between North and South in the United States, which began about 14 years later. A civil war ...

How René Gardi shaped Swiss views of Africa

 Cache   
In “African Mirror”, director Mischa Hedinger recounts the career of photographer and  film-maker René Gardi in colonial Cameroon in the 1950s. The documentary suggests that Gardi’s paternalistic, even racist approach says more about his native Switzerland at the time than about the Africa he thought he saw. “I have always tried not to present a biased vision of reality in my pictures.” René Gardi never doubted the documentary value of his own work, as the Bern film-maker explained in a letter to an African studies institute in California in 1985, near the end of his life. This belief system is deconstructed by Mischa Hedinger, himself a young film-maker from Bern, in his documentary African Mirror, which is now showing in German-speaking parts Switzerland and will be seen in French-speaking Switzerland next Spring.  Why bring a forgotten film-maker out of the shadows? “When the baby-boomer generation think of Africa, the films of René Gardi start to appear”, writes a journalist ...

சுவிஸ் தூதரக ஊழியர் தகவல்கள் ஒன்றுக்கொன்று முரண்-Swiss diplomatic staff reports contradict

கொழும்பில் உள்ள சுவிஸ் தூதரகத்தில் பணிபுரியும் இலங்கை ஊழியர் எதிர்நோக்கியதாக தெரிவிக்கப்படும் சம்பவம் தொடர்பில் தூதரகம் வழங்கிய தகவல்கள் மற்றும் விசாரணைகள் மூலமான தகவல்கள் ஒன்றுக்கொன்று முரணாக இருப்பதாக வெளிவிவகார அமைச்சு தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

நவம்பர் 25 ம் தேதி நடந்ததாகக் கூறப்படும் குற்றச் சம்பவம் குறித்து மிக தீவிரமாக கவனத்திற்கொண்ட இலங்கை அரசு, இந்த விவகாரம் குறித்து முழு விசாரணைக்கு உடனடியாக உத்தரவிட்டதாக வெளிவிவகார அமைச்சு ஒரு அறிக்கையில் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

வெளிவிவகார அமைச்சின் செயலாளர் ரவிநாத் ஆரியசிங்க, பாதுகாப்புச் செயலாளர், ஓய்வுபெற்ற மேஜர் ஜெனரல் கமல் குணரத்ன ஆகியோர் சுவிஸ் உயர் ஸ்தானிகர் ஹான்ஸ் பீட்டர் மொக் மற்றும் பிரதி தூதரக குழுவினரை சந்தித்து இது தொடர்பில் இடம்பெற்ற விசாரணைகள் தொடர்பான விபரங்களை நேற்று (01) தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.

சம்பவம் குறித்து, கடந்த டிசம்பர் 29 ஆம் திகதி வழங்கப்பட்ட தகவல்களின் அடிப்படையில் வாக்குமூலம் பெறுவதற்காக பாதிக்கப்பட்ட பெண்ணை தம்மிடம் அனுப்பிவைக்குமாறு சட்ட அமுலாக்க அதிகாரிகள் விடுத்த வேண்டுகோளுக்கு தூதரகம் இணங்காத போதிலும், விசாரணைகளை தொடர்ந்தும் முன்னெடுத்ததாக  வெளிவிவகார அமைச்சு தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

விசாரணைகளின் அடிப்படையில், குறித்த பெண் ஊழியரின் போக்குவரத்து வாடகை வாகன சேவை வழங்குனரின் அறிக்கை (Uber தகவல்கள்), CCTV காட்சிகள், தொலைபேசி அழைப்புகள், GPS தரவுகளின் அடிப்படையில் சுவிஸ் தூதரகம் சிஐடிக்கு வழங்கிய தகவல்களுடன் ஒன்றுக்கொன்று முரணானதாக காணப்படுவதாக அரசாங்க பிரதிநிதிகள் தூதரகத்திற்கு சாட்சியங்களுடன் தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.

மேலும், மறுக்கமுடியாத ஆதாரங்களின்படி குற்றச்சாட்டின் உண்மையான தன்மையை தீர்மானிக்க, மேலதிக விசாரணைகள் நடத்தப்பட வேண்டும் என, சட்ட அமுலாக்க அதிகாரிகள் சுவிஸ் தூதரகத்திற்கு சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ளனர.

அதற்காக இந்த சம்பவத்தில் தொடர்புடையதாகக் கூறப்படும் ஊழியரை சட்ட அமுலாக்க அதிகாரிகள் விசாரிக்க வேண்டும் என்பதையும் அவர்கள் எடுத்துக் கூறியுள்ளனர்.

கடத்தல் குற்றச்சாட்டில் அவர் காயமடைந்ததாகக் கூறப்பட்டதால், அவரை இலங்கையில் உள்ள சட்ட மருத்துவ அதிகாரி மூலம் மருத்துவ பரிசோதனைக்கு உட்படுத்தப்பட வேண்டும் எனவும் என்று வெளியுறவு அமைச்சு விடுத்துள்ள அறிக்கையில் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

இடம்பெற்றதாக தெரிவிக்கப்படும் சம்பவத்தின் நிலையை தீர்மானிக்க இலங்கை அரசுக்கு உதவுமாறு வெளியுறவு அமைச்சு சுவிட்சர்லாந்து தூதரகத்திடம் இதன் மூலம் கோரிக்கையொன்றையும் விடுத்துள்ளது.

சுவிஸ் தூதரக ஊழியர் கடத்தல் தொடர்பில் முழு விசாரணை-Switzerland Embassy Abduction-Ruwan Gunasekara Statement

CID நிஷாந்த நாடு கடத்த மறுத்ததாக தெரிவிக்கும் தகவலை சுவிஸ் தூதரகம் மறுப்பு

சுவிஸ் தூதரகத்தின் அதிகாரி ஒருவர் கடத்தப்பட்டதாக தெரிவிக்கப்படும் தகவல்களின் அடிப்படையில், குற்றப் புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவு (CID) முழு விசாரணையைத் ஆரம்பித்துள்ளதாக, பொலிஸ் ஊடகப் பேச்சாளர், சிரேஷ்ட பொலிஸ் அத்தியட்சகர் ருவன குணசேகர தெரிவித்தார்.

குறித்த சம்பவம் குறித்து கடந்த புதன்கிழமை (27) முதல் தீவிர விசாரணைகள் இடம்பெற்று வருவதாக அவர் தெரிவித்தார்.

குறித்த விடயம் தொடர்பில் பொலிஸ் அண்மித்த பட அசைவு கெமரா பிரிவினரும், CID யினருக்கு ஒத்துழைப்பு வழங்குவதற்காக நியமிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளதாக அவர் சுட்டிக்காட்டினார்.

குறித்த விசாரணைகளை முன்னெடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளமை தொடர்பில்  CIDயினர் சுவிஸ்லாந்து தூதருக்கு  அறிவித்துள்ளதாகவும், அது தொடர்பில் அவசியமான தகவல்களை வழங்கி முழுமையான ஒத்துழைப்பை வழங்குமாறும் கோரியுள்ளதாக அவர் தெரிவித்தார்.

அதற்கமைய, தூதரகத்திற்கு கிடைக்கப்பெற்றுள்ள தகவல்கள், நேற்றையதினம் (29) CID இற்கு வழங்கப்பட்டுள்ளதாக, ருவன் குணசேகர தெரிவித்தார்.

கடந்த திங்கட்கிழமை (25), சுவிஸ் அலுவலக அதிகாரி ஒருவர் கடத்தப்பட்டு அச்சுறுத்தப்பட்ட சம்பவம் குறித்து ஊடகங்களில் செய்தி வெளியிடப்பட்டிருந்தது. அத்துடன் சுவிஸ் தூதரகம் மற்றும் சுவிஸ்லாந்து அரசாங்கம், இது தொடர்பில் விசாரிக்க இலங்கை அதிகாரிகளிடம் கோரிக்கையொன்றையும் விடுத்திருந்தமை குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

அதன்படி குற்றவியல் புலனாய்வுத் துறையும் பொலிஸாரும் இணைந்து இந்த சம்பவம் குறித்து விசாரணை நடத்தி வருவதாக வெளிவிவகார அமைச்வு அறிவித்திருந்தது.

குறித்த சம்பவத்தின்போது, சந்தேகநபர்கள் பாதிக்கப்பட்ட பெண்ணை அச்சுறுத்தியுள்ளதோடு, தாங்கள் குற்றப் புலனாய்வு பிரிவு அதிகாரிகள் எனவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளமை தெரியவந்துள்ளதாக தெரிவித்த ருவன் குணசேகர, அவர்களது விசாரணைக்காக அவ்வாறு சந்தேகநபர்கள் தெரிவித்துள்ளதாகவும் அது முற்றிலும் பொய்யான விடயம் எனவும் அவர் இதன்போது சுட்டிக்காட்டினார்.

கடந்த வாரம், குற்றவியல் புலனாய்வுத் துறையின் முன்னாள் பொலிஸ் ஆய்வாளர் நிஷாந்த சில்வா, சுவிட்சர்லாந்திற்கு தப்பிச் சென்றமை தொடர்பில் பேசப்பட்டது, இதனைத் தொடர்ந்து இலங்கையில் உள்ள சுவிஸ் தூதரக ஊழியர் அச்சுறுத்தப்பட்டிருந்தார்.

நிஷாந்த சில்வா, சுவிட்சர்லாந்திற்கு தப்பிப்பதற்கான விசாக்கள் மற்றும் பிற வசதிகளை வழங்கியமை தொடர்பிலான தகவல்களை பெற குறித்த பெண்ணிடம் சந்தேகநபர்கள் முயற்சி செய்துள்ளதாக தெரிவிக்கப்படுகின்றது.

இதேவேளை, அறிக்கையொன்றை வெளியிட்டுள்ள சுவிஸ் தூதரகம் தங்களது பெண் ஊழியர் ஒருவர் வீதியில் வைத்து கார் ஒன்றில் பலவந்தமாக ஏற்றப்பட்டு, அச்சுறுத்தப்பட்டதாகவும், அவரிடமிருந்து தூதரக தகவல்களை கோரியதாகவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

அத்துடன், சம்பவம் தொடர்பில் உடனடியாக அதிகாரிகளுக்கு உரிய முறையில் முறைப்பாடு வழங்கியுள்ளதாகவும், அதற்கு பூரண ஒத்துழைப்பை வழங்குவதற்கு உறுதியளித்துள்ளதாகவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

அத்துடன், குறித்த ஊழியர் சுகவீனமுற்றுள்ளதால் இது தொடர்பில் அவரால் எவ்வித அறிக்கையையும் தெரிவிக்க முடியாதுள்ளதாக தூதரகம், தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

இதேவேளை, சுவிஸ்லாந்திற்கு சென்றுள்ள, குற்றப் புலனாய்வு பிரிவு அதிகாரி மற்றும் அவரது குடும்பத்தினரை இலங்கைக்கு நாடு கடத்துமாறு விடுக்கப்பட்ட கோரிக்கையை சுவிஸ் அரசாங்கம் மறுத்ததாக தெரிவிக்கப்படும் தகவல்களில் எவ்வித உண்மையும் இல்லை என சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ளது.

இந்நிலையில், குறித்த விடயம் தொடர்பில் மிக விரைவாக விசாரணைகள நடாத்தி, சந்தேகநபர்களை கைது செய்யுமாறு குற்றப் புலனாய்வு திணைக்களத்திற்கு ஆலோசனை வழங்கியுள்ளதாக, பொலிஸ் ஊடகப் பேச்சாளர், சிரேஷ்ட பொலிஸ் அத்தியட்சகர் ருவன் குணசேகர தெரிவித்தார்.

Open Hardware: Arduino and RISC-V

  • OpenGradeSIM is an open source incline simulator for indoor bike trainers

    Although he would probably rather be outdoors, after an injury Matt Ockendon had a lot more time to ride his Tacx Neo indoor trainer and tinker. He decided he wanted his rig to be able to simulate the grade of hills, but as commercially available units with this capability are quite expensive, he instead devised his own solution dubbed “OpenGradeSIM.”

    [...]

    With this data in hand, the Nano controls a linear actuator using an L298N-based driver board to raise or lower the bike’s front end. The derived bike angle is sensed via the Nano’s built-in IMU, providing an elegant closed-loop system. Additionally, the incline is shown on a 1.3″ I2C OLED display that serves as a mini dashboard while Ockendon cycles.

  • RISC-V moves to neutral Switzerland over trade disruption

    The nonprofit RISC-V Foundation is relocating to Switzerland over concerns about the impact of U.S. trade policies.

    Foundation CEO Calista Redmond told Reuters that its members are “concerned about possible geopolitical disruption.” The foundation’s board approved the move unanimously after hearing members around the globe say that they would be “a lot more comfortable… if the incorporation were not in the U.S.,” she added.

    RISC-V is a young organization, founded in 2015 and located in Delaware, to set standards for chip architectures that are allowed to use the RISC-V trademark on its products. RISC-V is a reduced instruction set architecture that is open source technology that anyone can use to design, make or sell RISC-V chips and software for electronics.

The Jim Bell System

 Cache   
As I write this article on July 3, 2002, I am already hearing out my window the occasional pops of micro-explosives enthusiasts getting a head start on their annual excuse to play with things that go bang and supposedly celebrate their freedom. Tomorrow, libertarians across the country will use the holiday as an opportunity to grouse to disinterested relatives around the barbecue grill about how little freedom we actually have left, or really ever had. LP lifers often say there is no magic bullet to get the kind of society we want, and it will take decades of hard work in the political trenches, and of course, many many donations to the party, before we ever see progress. Conversely, I propose that a nutty guy named Jim Bell has already designed the magic bullet; it just needs to be forged and we will start seeing dramatic positive change immediately. **The following article is an opinion piece written in 2002 by the libertarian author Robert Vroman. This is the first part of the Jim Bell System debate series and the revisited version written by Vroman can be read here. Vroman is well known for his editorial work writing for anti-state.com. ‘The Jim Bell System’ first published on anti-state.com on July 3, 2002, in response to the assassination politics (AP) debate. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any opinions, content, accuracy or quality within the Op-ed article.** Since this is a fairly controversial topic, I will start with a psychological self-analysis as a disclaimer. My primary long-term goal is to live forever. I’m convinced that the exponential improvements in medical technology will curve upwards to infinity within the next century. This means surviving the relatively primitive period between then and now is the major stumbling block. As an atheist, I am faced with the conclusion that this is the only life I have. Therefore I have an enormous incentive to minimize risks to my health and well being, just as a Christian has incentive not to sin; we both would be gambling our presumed eternal life, an unacceptable wager. One such risk I will choose to decline is taking up arms against the United States government. Thus the powers that be who may read this article can rest assured that I will be exhibiting more or less cowardly behavior for the next 75 years or so, and present no security threat whatsoever. I am simply predicting what will happen and am no more responsible for the outcome than an astronomer who reveals that an asteroid is on course to wipe out DC. Hopefully, the destruction of this particular doomsday rock will be localized around the tyrants. With that said, I present the following dangerous idea. My secondary long-term goal is to live free. By that I mean living in a stable, secure, anarcho-capitalist society. The obvious obstacle to this goal is the existence of the State. The problems I face generally in eradicating this persistent pest are that: The State is actively retarding the progress of science, thus making my immortality timetable more and more dicey. There aren’t a whole lot of capital resources or individuals enlightened enough to be on my side. If I die in the process, either from fighting a revolution or from allowing the state to last too long, stalling out science, it will all be for naught (from my perspective anyway) The challenge then is to devise a plan to remove this obstacle, balancing the considerations of speed, cost, and safety. In a recent article John T. Kennedy made the excellent point, using the example of a porcupine, that in order to avoid being eaten, one need not necessarily be anywhere near as powerful as the predator, only become an overpriced meal. The historical example of Switzerland in WWII comes to mind. Clearly, with a concentrated effort, the Nazi war machine could have decimated the small neutral country. In fact, Hitler boasted early on in the war that he would “be the butcher of the Swiss.” However, the Swiss militia system was able to mobilize a half million trained riflemen within 48 hours of that pronouncement. Once entrenched in foreboding Alpine terrain, they were ordered to defend the border “to the last cartridge.” The Fuhrer decided to pass on that challenge and instead waltzed through Denmark and France, countries with little to no civilian gun culture. For our purposes, the State is the predator, and we are the prey. Kennedy mentioned (with appropriate caveats) that Assassination Politics would be one possible method to grow some quills, and raise our price beyond the power monger’s ability to pay. Briefly, the AP system, as I envision its probable implementation, would operate something like this. You come across, say, “www.jimbellsystem.com” and see a long list of names next to dollar amounts. You are then invited to select a name and then submit a guess as to the exact date this person will expire, in exchange for some standard betting fee, like $1, via some as yet undeveloped digital cash scheme. Your dollar is then added to the total on the master list. You can repeat this process as many times, on as many names as you like, or even submit a new name. Strong cryptography protects your anonymity in all cases. ‘The Jim Bell System’ first published on anti-state.com on July 3, 2002. Then when someone on the list inevitably is reaped, the site operator examines all the winning bets (if any) and divides the prize evenly among them, after taking a small percentage as commission. The prize money is then forwarded to anonymous digital cash accounts that the winning bettors indicated when they submitted their entries. In other words, it’s just a standard betting pool system except with paranoid security, and a rather macabre theme. However, the catch is that once a particular name gets some serious cash associated with it, say $1M+, there will be a strong motivation for an unscrupulous bettor to tip the odds...

Gentwo Digital was also brought on board to implement the specific restructuring requirements of the first investment solution, SEBA noted. SEBA Crypto Asset Select Price Index as of Nov. 28. Source: MVIS SEBAX “is a dynamic, risk-optimized index with a broad market exposure of the crypto asset market,” the bank described. Its objective “is to provide an investable index for the most secure, reliable and tradable crypto assets,” MVIS detailed. “The selection of the constituents is monitored on an ongoing basis. The index applies advanced techniques to reduce concentration into single constituents and to deliver enhanced diversification.” SEBAX’s November components. Source: MVIS According to its fact sheet, the index was established on July 2 and currently has five components that are rebalanced monthly. It is calculated daily with the constituent prices converted to USD. A maximum of eight crypto assets ranked by market capitalization are selected for inclusion in the index. MVIS has contracted with Cryptocompare Data Ltd. to maintain and calculate the index. In November, the index components are 48.46% BTC, 26.70% ETH, 18.28% LTC, 3.43% XLM, and 3.13% ETC. Crypto assets have to meet specific criteria to be eligible for the index and must rank within the top 30 coins by market capitalization. “Stable coins and privacy coins are excluded,” MVIS explained. Also excluded are crypto assets with less 90 days of pricing history, those that are not listed on any of the eligible exchanges, and those that fail the index’s technical maturity and safety criteria.

Fun, physics and the God particle: a tour of Cern, Switzerland

 Cache   

Science and art meet on a mind-blowing visit to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, while the fairytale streets of the Swiss capital are a wonder, too

There is something retro and subterranean about the maze of narrow corridors ahead of us. Exposed steel pipes run along the ceilings, the floors are shiny linoleum and the doors are moulded wood. It looks as if it has barely changed since it was built back in the 1950s.

Welcome to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known as Cern, home to the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Beyond the design, what is more retro, liable to make you misty-eyed for a bygone era, is how it all came into being.

Portugal, France and Germany in Euro 2020 super group

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Other favourites were given a much easier-looking ride.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Those who can, do

 Cache   

I’ve never really liked the saying “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.”

Teaching in itself is something that people “do”. And not everyone who wants to teach actually can teach. When we encounter someone who’s a great teacher, we know it right away. And it’s a thing of beauty to behold.

Whether I like the saying or not, it sure came to mind when I read about University of Miami professor Bruce Bagley, an export on crime in the Latin America. Turns out, he was putting what he’d learned into action:

…laundering at least $3 million in dirty Venezuelan money through his own U.S. bank accounts and keeping about $300,000 as a fee for himself. (Source: Miami Herald)

Both doing and teaching, as it were.

In a story that sounds straight out of a Carl Hiaasen (who specializes in crime novels set in Florida, and populated with all sorts of eccentric characters and wild situations), Bagley set up bank accounts for South American no-gooders.

State records show he had operated “Bagley Consultants,” along with his wife, Annette Bagley.

According to a federal indictment, Bagley in November 2016 opened up an account at a bank in Weston in the company name. State corporate records show the company was dissolved some time in the following year.

But the account remained open, going little used until about November 2017, when he began receiving monthly deposits of “hundreds of thousands of dollars from bank accounts located in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates,” according to the indictment.

The deposits came from two companies not named in the indictment…Their accounts were controlled by someone described in court papers only as a “Colombian individual.”

Swiss banks? UAE? “Colombian individual.” Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.

According to the feds, once the deposits were made, Bagley would get a cashier’s check for 90%, made payable to an unnamed person.

The individual and the professor discussed they were moving the money on behalf of the Colombian and that “the funds represented the proceeds from foreign bribery and embezzlement stolen from the Venezuelan people.”

Bagley, as it turns out, had written the book on the topic of bad actors: Drug Trafficking, Organized Crime, and Violence in the Americas Today. Guess he just couldn’t resist turning what he’d written into action. Guess he didn’t read (or write) the fine print.

Bagley is facing some serious time. He’s 73, so 20 years x 2 (or even x 1) would effectively be life in the stir.

The University has placed him on administrative leave.

And presumably, his life as an expert – commenting in top tier papers like the New York Times and Washington Post, acting as an expert witness – has come to a screeching halt.

As an expert witness, he hasn’t always appeared on the side of the angels:

In October, Bagley took the stand as an expert witness for the defense at a major drug-trafficking trial in Miami federal court. The trial featured a Colombian syndicate accused of conspiring to ship 20 tons of cocaine into the United States.

Teaching, Punditing. Experting. Conferencing.

And he threw this all over for a piddling $300K?

Maybe he was looking at his 401K and found he needed to sock away a bit more to ensure a more comfortable retirement for himself and Annette. Maybe he’s just greedy. Maybe the money was just too easy. Maybe writing about all that illegal money flowing to the bad guys was so frustrating, he felt the overwhelming need to wet his beak. As they say in wise-guy speak. 

The feds have had their eye on him for a while now – maybe they read the book – and last February caught him in a sting, sending nearly a quarter of a mil to his accounts, and telling him:

…the money came from corrupt sources in Venezuela, and watch[in]g as he happily accepted the cash. (Source: Miami New Times)

Bagley’s lawyers’ fees will likely exceed whatever he made through his money laundering. (Of course, he could have been doing this for years and have a lot more squirreled away that the feds haven’t found. Yet.)

Bet he’s wishing that he’d stuck to teaching instead of doing.

Meanwhile, there’s another bizarre rogue professor story making the rounds. This one is about a couple of chemists at a university in Arkansas who’ve been nabbed for running an on-campus meth lab.

Straight out of Breaking Bad.

Life imitating art.

Bet those fellows wish they’d stuck to teaching, too.

Extended Follow-up of an Educational Intervention Encouraging Appropriate Use of Blood Transfusions.

Acta Haematol. 2019 Nov 21;:1-6

Authors: Pasvolsky O, Shepshelovich D, Berger T, Tadmor B, Shochat T, Raanani P, Yahalom V, Gafter-Gvili A

Abstract
INTRODUCTION: A restrictive transfusion strategy of packed red blood cells (PRBCs) has been associated with at least non-inferior patient outcomes in a variety of clinical settings. In December 2014, we conducted an educational intervention which consisted of an oral presentation and computerized notifications at a single tertiary medical center.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the long-term effects of a simple and low-cost educational intervention aimed to promote awareness to transfusion guidelines.
METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed all PRBC transfusions ordered between 2014 and 2017. The primary end point was defined as the percentage of PRBC transfused to patients with hemoglobin (Hb) ≥8 g/dL.
RESULTS: Between 2014 and 2017, a total of 27,475 PRBCs were transfused in our medical center. There was a continuous reduction in the percentage of PRBCs transfused at a Hb level ≥8 g/dL between 2014 and 2017, with a matching increase in the PRBC percentage trans-fused at Hb <7 g/dL (OR reduction of 42%, 95% CI 0.54-0.62 and OR increase of 68% [95% CI 1.56-1.81], respec-tively).
CONCLUSION: A simple educational intervention likely contributed to sustained improvement in the appropriateness of PRBC transfusions.

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

 Cache   

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

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


          

8,700+ new hydropower plants threatening Europe's freshwater biodiversity

 Cache   
Hydropower pressure on European rivers: The story in numbers © WWF, RiverWatch, EuroNatur, GEOTA
28% of all planned hydropower plants are in protected areas, the vast majority in national parks and Natura 2000 sites. The study also evidences an alarming rise in small hydropower, which wreaks environmental havoc whilst producing very little energy. With more than a third of European freshwater fish species currently threatened with extinction [1] -  of which hydropower dams are a key driver -  European rivers and their biodiversity cannot cope with the pressure of more hydropower. 
 
Commissioned by WWF, RiverWatch, GEOTA and EuroNatur [2], the study provides damning evidence of governments' failure to protect rivers and biodiversity, demonstrating a blatant disregard for EU water and nature protection laws.
 
Key findings: 
  • Europe is already saturated with 21,387 hydropower plants
  • Despite this, 8,785 additional plants which are planned or under construction [3]
  • 28% of all planned hydropower is in protected areas (33% in the EU)
  • 91% of the plants recorded by the study are small plants, which produce negligible amounts of energy (less than 10MW)
 
The study is released as the EU prepares its Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, and is preparing to take a leading role at the 2020 Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity [4]. 
 
Hydropower ≠ Green 
Hydropower dams destroy rivers and their surrounding environment, seriously contributing to the loss in freshwater biodiversity. They change a river's natural flow, block fish migration routes - affecting fish stocks and the survival of vulnerable species - and trap sediments that protect riverbanks and deltas against floods and sea level rises. 
 
Strong law, weak enforcement 
Under the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD), Member States must ensure all rivers are healthy by 2027. Hydropower dams are a major obstacle to reaching this target. Seven years to go, and 60% of rivers are still not healthy. 
 
The impact of the WFD has been gutted by shoddy implementation, lacklustre enforcement, and the abuse of exemptions, often for the benefit of unsustainable farming and industry [5].  New hydropower plants are often built regardless of the non-deterioration principle of the law, without even asking for an exemption - even when there is evidence that the plant would further degrade river health. In Austria - one of the countries with the highest existing hydropower intensity - an additional 123 plants are planned. But a recent study [6] found that less than a third of the permits delivered for hydropower plants were in line with the WFD.
 
Andreas Baumüller, Head of Natural Resources at WWF's European Policy Office, said:
"Freshwater species populations are declining at twice the rate of terrestrial or marine species - and hydropower dams are a major pressure. Europe has a strong legal tool in the EU Water Framework Directive, but enforcement by the European Commission is weak, implementation by Member States even weaker. The EU cannot claim to be a champion for biodiversity without putting this key environmental tool at the heart of its European Green Deal. It must invest in enforcement, eradicate the abuse of exemptions, and say no to more hydropower in Europe."   
 
Gabriel Schwaderer, CEO of EuroNatur, said: 
"Most of the planned hydropower projects - almost 3.000 - are on the Balkans. The rivers there are still mostly intact, some even in an untouched state. They are a European treasure we cannot afford to lose. We count on the European Union to monitor closely the developments in the Balkan States, where a lot of investment goes to hydropower, but the potential for solar energy – a truly renewable energy source - is not being used." 
 
Ulrich Eichelmann, CEO of RiverWatch, said:
"This assessment is alarming. We are facing nothing less than the end of free flowing rivers in Europe, if we don't stop this dam craze. Under the label of "green energy", the hydro lobby and political decision-makers are about to destroy Europe's last remaining rivers and streams, and with it an enormous amount of plant and animal species. We don't need any additional new hydro dams in Europe. Subsidies on hydro has to stop and nature protection must be improved." 
 
Steven Weiss, Associate Professor at the Institute of Zoology, Karl-Franzens University of Graz, said
"Based on extrapolations from my more detailed study on the Balkans, as well as the IUCN red list, we can predict that at least 20 and perhaps up to 30 freshwater fish species would go extinct if all of these plans would be carried out. Furthermore, a large percentage (> 95%) of the southern European fish fauna would be placed in an IUCN threat category. We must understand that the already high demand for water resources, especially in southern Europe will be exacerbated by such large-scale hydropower exploitation, resulting in a deadly combination for freshwater biodiversity."

Notes to the editors: 
 
Key recommendations
For a full, detailed list of recommendations, please refer to p.37 in the study. 
  • New hydropower projects in the last remaining free-flowing or intact rivers in Europe have to be prevented, and the planning of additional hydropower plants should be reconsidered. 
  • Within protected areas, hydropower development cannot be an option. 
  • In countries with the highest density such as Austria, Norway or Switzerland, the focus should solely be on the refurbishment and, where possible, on renovation. 
  • Old hydropower licenses which need to be prolonged must require strong criteria on how to mitigate the environmental impacts and the public must be included in this evaluation.
 
In particular, we call on the European Commission to:
  • Better enforce existing EU legislation to protect rivers and their biodiversity from hydropower, particularly the EU Water Framework Directive and EU Birds and Habitats Directives. 
  • To this end, the European Commission should review the existing guidance documents that apply to hydropower development under the Common Implementation Strategy of the Water Framework Directive.  
  • End subsidies and public finance for new hydropower development in Europe
  • Develop tighter criteria for hydropower under the EU taxonomy for pollution and ecosystems impacts, to make sure no greenfield hydropower plants are developed in the EU anymore and retrofits are given priority, but only if they are more beneficial to society and environment than decommissioning and they don't further deteriorate rivers.

WWF says UN talks are critical to increase climate ambition as key year for delivery looms

 Cache

GLAND, Switzerland (27 November, 2019) - Significantly enhanced climate ambition and climate action must be at the centre of next week's UN climate talks being held in Madrid. Unprecedented levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere mean any further delay will put the world on an irreversible path to an unforgiving future. 

 

WWF calls on policymakers to make significant commitments to reduce emissions rapidly, and at scale, at this year's climate COP. 

 

Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, leader of WWF's global climate and energy practice said: "This past year has underscored the scale of the challenge we face and the inadequacy of the collective response so far, especially from big emitters. We know what to do, we have solutions. We now need to step into the future with bold, transformative climate action. The longer we wait, the worse the impacts and recovery costs will be while putting the planet and humanity at peril."
 

Governments must use the opportunity of COP25 to announce updated, strengthened and enhanced national plans and strategies, setting out the emission reductions they will deliver by 2030 on a pathway to net-zero emissions by 2050.
 

Pulgar-Vidal continues:"While our priorities must ensure we sharply reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and unleash the potential of renewable energy, we must not undervalue nature's contribution. 
 

"Nature must be acknowledged as having a role to play in helping to solve the climate crisis - and, of course, is hugely vulnerable in a warming world. It can act as a solution to the exponential increase in climate ambition needed - transforming our relationship with it is also critical to success. It is essential that governments increase nature-based solutions in their national climate plans to aid the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and to protect nature."
 

WWF expects COP to finalise negotiations on carbon markets, make progress on technical aspects of loss and damage to address current and future needs; and to finalise the future of the work of non-state actors in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.  WWF expects to see the important role of cities, companies, the finance sector and investors, among others, renewed and strengthened. It is a vital component of scaling national ambition. 

 

New science and impressive grass-roots action over the past year has driven the climate crisis back up the international agenda, but it has not yet been translated into action required. This year's COP is vital to change this if we are to have any hope of reducing the destruction that climate change brings, and bending the curve of nature loss.

Anti-Globalization and its Discontents

 Cache

This article originally appeared in the March-April, 2001 edition of Canadian Dimension.

Something is going on out there. Whenever it seems like the movement against corporate globalization which burst into public consciousness at Seattle might have already run its course, another successful protest or gathering takes place – as if to prove that rumours of the movement’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. The latest examples are the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre and the parallel protests in Switzerland against the World Economic Forum in Davos. Similarly, and closer to home, there has been an overwhelming response to those organizing protests against the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) at the April meeting of the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City.

For the first time in many years, there is a broad and dynamic international movement of protest and reflection – mobilizing, among others, the young and disenfranchised, workers and farmers, social movements and non-governmental organizations in all regions of the world and in unison. Any part of the Left not excited by what is happening is either overburdened by the memory of its own past or has made its peace with the neo-liberal order.

Yet we mustn’t miss the forest for the trees. As exciting and encouraging as this revival of revolt has been, there has been no real slowing of the neo-liberal steamroller that has trampled the Left, trade unions and social movements over the past two decades. As for the domestic political situation, both the campaigns and results of the recent elections in Canada and the United States are confirmation of the depressingly narrow limits within which mainstream political life and debate continue to take place. While the growing number of anti-globalization activists may be reaching a broader and more receptive audience – especially on and around the campuses – public opinion and political practice have shifted only marginally in the 15 months since Seattle.

On one level, Seattle was certainly a turning point for the Left –and indeed for the exploited and oppressed the world over. It catapulted the battle against the multilateral institutions and globalization into the public spotlight, and made an impression on the citadels of power themselves.

On another level, however, it is still too early to say whether Seattle was a turning point or not. For one thing, the collapse in abject confusion of the WTO’s “Millennium Round” was due as much to conflicts between the Ministerial delegations as it was to the mass protest on the streets of Seattle or public opinion around the world.

The ruling classes, North and South, still very much retain the initiative, and it remains to be seen whether they will be able to overcome their differences and forge ahead with their agenda. There has certainly been no ebb in their efforts. What they haven’t been able to achieve in a new all-encompassing WTO round, they are securing – through so many bilateral agreements and secretive negotiations – on-side agreements such as the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) – which threatens wholesale privatization of the ownership and delivery of our public services.

For another, the movement itself is now entering a new phase. Many realize that it is no longer sufficient merely to chase the big neo-liberal meetings around the planet. The Porto Alegre gathering was a big step forward in the laying down of a common international strategic and organizational framework. But it is not clear how successful we will be in meeting the challenges of this new phase in the movement’s development.

The Socialist Left are Latecomers to the Movement

What does the socialist Left have to say about (and to) the new movement at this critical juncture? For one thing, we have to be lucid about the nature of the movement and honest about what our role has been thus far.

Before Seattle, particularly in Canada, the USA and the rest of the English-speaking West, our small and ageing forces were largely absent from anti-globalization initiatives. Campaigns around the draft Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAT), the 50th anniversary of the IMF-World Bank combine, the Jubilee 2000 initiative for debt relief, and the educational work and direct actions against genetically modified organisms were carried out by a new coalition of forces ranging from environmentalists to trade-union staffers to faith-based groups and those concerned with the erosion of the democratic sovereignty of our national (and federal) political institutions. This new coalition of forces paved the way for Seattle and for the subsequent entry into the fray of a wider and often more youthful and combative range of forces.

The organized socialist Left are latecomers to many of these debates and struggles around globalization. In Canada, during the corporate offensive of the 1980s and 90s, most socialist activists were caught up in defensive and often fragmented batdes against job losses and government cutbacks. It is in part thanks to these socialists that the trade-union movement here has fared rather better than its American counterpart – and why it could launch a movement on the scale of the Ontario Days of Action in the mid-1990s in response to a new round of right-wing attacks.

Nonetheless, following the historic losing battle against the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA) in the late 1980s, the socialist Left largely retreated from the broader fight against the neo-liberal free-trade agenda, leaving the field to organizations such as the Council of Canadians. We now have a lot of catching up to do.

We have to see the new movement for what it is, analyze it on its own terms and recognize its diversity. Neat labels are more often than not unhelpful in this regard. For example, though comforting to the socialist Left, the “anti-capitalist” tag has been used so loosely as to be almost meaningless. The label was originally the product of an overconfident neo-liberal mainstream media, for whom calling protesters “anti-capitalist” was the easiest way to tar the movement as marginal and irrelevant. But now that it cannot be dismissed so easily, and efforts are underway to co-opt parts of the movement into the neo-liberal fold, protesters are described as advocates of a more “inclusive” and “compassionate” globalization. In fact, the real (and constantly shifting) centre of gravity of the movement has always laid somewhere in between these two diametrically-opposed poles.

It might also help to take a long view of what is happening. After all, the tasks of rebuilding and rethinking before the Left are enormous. This is the first major international movement since the regressive transformation of international economic and political life in the 1980s and 90s. It is also the first major international movement since the fall of the Berlin Wall – an event which created disarray and demoralization as the Left grappled with the terrible failures of the major post-capitalist experiences of the 20th century.

This long period of defeat and disarray helps explain the diversity of responses on the socialist Left to the new movement. On the one hand, one finds skepticism or even hostility among those ill-at-ease with the wide range of forces involved at and since Seattle, and with the issues they address. On the other, there is a kind of boundless optimism. Surely there is a symmetrical error here.

The new movement cannot in one fell swoop solve all the Left’s accumulated problems. The anti-FTAA fight does not provide a ready-made line of defense against the new round of attacks on trade-union organizing, for example. Nor does it, in and of itself, help us respond to the deteriorating relations between Quebec and the rest of Canada, or to Canada’s support for the growing US-led militarization of the hemisphere through Plan Colombia and Star Wars II.

But at the same time, the new movement is not by any stretch of the imagination some kind of obstacle en route to the “true path” of socialist renewal.

Fears of Cooptation

Before Seattle, parts of the socialist Left could be chastised for condemning capitalism and imperialism in the abstract while absenting themselves from the struggles against the institutions fashioned to serve these ends. Now, though, perhaps the anti-globalization movement has bent the stick too far in the opposite direction. Its exclusive focus on the IMFJWBIWTO suggests that these agencies exist independently of the imperialist world order.

Yet even in ruling-class circles there are ongoing discussions about reforming the “international financial architecture”, which could lead to a transformation of the IMF and the World Bank. It is not inconceivable that the WTO will adopt one of the main demands of its Northern NGO critics and most Western trade unions, which is to include social and environmental clauses in its protocols. The greater openness among FTAA sponsors to talk of such “social clauses” is revealing in this respect, and is in line with the partial re-orientation advocated by Clinton right in the midst of the Seattle melee. Would such clauses be advantageous to the peoples of the South? Would greater transparency and accountability of these institutions remove the conditions which daily reproduce inequality and injustice in all of our societies?

There is a wider confusion in the deployment of that most vacuous of concepts and yet most loaded of words, “globalization”. It has become an article of faith in gatherings of the movement to declaim that “we are not opposed to globalization only to capitalist globalization” and hence the popularity of slogans such as “globalize resistance” and “globalization from below”. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of the process which is presently unfolding.

In many respects the anti-globalizers have imbibed much of the rhetoric and ideology of globalizers: that transnational institutions are pre-eminent in the present world order, that states have been eclipsed, that imperial power has been fractured by corporate power and global civil society.

Globalization is assumed to be a neutral process and conceded to be irresistible. This is mistaken. What passes as globalization is actually the latest phase in the re-ordering of relations between capital and labour, and between the “centre” and “periphery” of the world economy. None of this is natural or inevitable, as The Economist magazine admitted in a now-famous editorial published on the eve of the Seattle protests.

In globalization’s wake come the intensification of work among those in stable employment, insecurity in work elsewhere, the despoliation of the natural environment with the aim of maximizing profits, the privatization of public wealth and the socialization of corporate loss. Globalization is more than the revolution in technology and communications we hear so much about, and which in any case was not carried out for our benefit. Globalization cannot be wrestled away from its creators and in the process humanized for those it presently terrorizes.

Internationalists, Not Globalists

We must be internationalists, not globalists. Where globalization creates monocultures in economies, internationalists favour diversity. Where globalization concentrates power in unelected and unaccountable institutions, internationalists favour equal and fraternal relations between nations and the devolution of power to the regional, municipal, community and workplace level. Where globalization homogenizes popular culture into a pastiche of MTV and Hollywood, internationalists reject the Coca-Colonization of world culture. Where globalization insists on conformity and uniformity in political and economic life, internationalists affirm that solidarity across borders respects national difference and autonomy in devising strategies for social change.

The challenge for some components of the movement is to recognize the limits of its present demand to be seated at the negotiating table of the rich and powerful to play a role in the restructuring of their institutions. Some of these forces have actually made their peace with the new neo-liberal world order and merely seek to carve out a more comfortable niche within it.

The challenge for the movement as a whole is to deepen its critique of “actually existing capitalism” and to begin generating alternatives to it. This means clarifying the links between globalization and injustice at the workplace and in the community; and between globalization and the rise in political authoritarianism, militarism and global environmental decay. These alternatives must emerge not only on the streets and in our assemblies but also in the fight for the political representation of our movement and its allies in the democratic bodies of our societies.

Into the medium term, a key measuring stick of the strength and political intelligence of the movement will be its ability to make real breakthroughs into the “mainstream” political process – to which the overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens still turn when seeking political outlets to express their anger and aspirations. The Nader campaign in the United States and the successful “participatory budget” experiments of the Workers Party (PT) in southern Brazil are two different examples of how to make inroads in this field while remaining loyal and accountable to the new international mass movement. On a much smaller scale and closer to home, the Rebuilding the Left/Structured Movement Against Capitalism (SMAC) initiative in English-speaking Canada seeks to bridge the gap between grassroots activism and broader political representation, through the building of a pluralist anti-capitalist political current involved in the struggles of workers and the oppressed.

Nothing is certain as to the fate and fortunes of this nascent movement. It is clear, however, that unless the socialist Left throws itself wholeheartedly into its activities and debates, and acts in a constructive and non-sectarian way, it will not receive a hearing during this or probably any future wave of radicalization.

Ahead of us all is the unmet challenge – the construction of a new International of Hope, which fires the imagination and mobilizes the energies of millions of people in the struggle against capitalist barbarism and for socialism.

The Girl in the Lion Cage: Regulating Hypnotism in Nineteenth Century France

 Cache   
NLM History of Medicine

In 1890 in the southern French town of Beziers, a ”carnival hypnotizer” put a sleeping young girl, one “Miss Sperling,” in a lion’s cage, in an effort to demonstrate how profound – and authentic – her hypnotic trance was. The awe of the assembled crowd soon turned to horror, however, as the lion seized “Miss Sperling” in its jaws, parading her around the cage. The victim was eventually extracted and taken to the hospital but soon died from the injuries she sustained. This incident was just one of a number of stories circulating in the French press in the late nineteenth century that vividly demonstrated the dangers of the popular hypnotism shows that captivated audiences across the European continent. Doctors seized on such episodes to argue that the practice of hypnotism should be limited to medical professionals who alone could be trusted with the power to control the minds of others. In some European nations—Belgium and Switzerland, for example, and in some Italian towns—their efforts were successful. In France, however, despite the urging of the powerful neurologist and psychologist Jean-Martin Charcot, efforts to regulate popular hypnotism failed. This paper, based largely on French nineteenth century medical journals and the writings of Charcot, explores the debates surrounding popular hypnotism. It argues that the failure to regulate the practice in late nineteenth-century France reveals conflicts over the authority of professional medicine, the changing role of women, and deep cultural anxiety about the power of the unconscious mind.

  • The share of wealth held by the Forbes 400 more than doubled from $1.27 trillion in 2009 to nearly $3 trillion this year.
  • That marks a significant increase encouraged by a combination of sliding tax rates, stock market growth, and the economic recovery, according to Gabriel Zucman, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley.
  • Zucman, an economist who has consulted with the Warren and Sanders campaigns, noted the staggering amount of wealth that the richest 400 US citizens — or roughly 0.00025% of the American population — built up over the last decade.

The share of wealth held by the Forbes 400 more than doubled from $1.27 trillion in 2009 to nearly $3 trillion this year. That marks a significant increase encouraged by a combination of sliding tax rates, stock market growth, and the economic recovery, according to Gabriel Zucman, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley.

Zucman, an economist who has consulted with the Warren and Sanders campaigns, noted the staggering amount of wealth that the richest 400 US citizens — or roughly 0.00025% of the American population — has built up over the last decade in a Sunday tweet.

The amount of taxable income for the wealthiest group of US citizens dropped from 27% in 2009 to around 23% this year, the first time they were effectively taxed lower than the nation's working class, Business Insider reported last month.

The drop reflected changes in federal income tax as well as state and local levies, but particularly corporate taxes, Zucman said in an email to Business Insider.

trump tax bill

A blend of factors which included the rapid growth of the stock market, the nation's economic recovery after the Great Recession, the unfettered growth of large corporations, and declining tax rates fostered a favorable environment for a surge in the wealth held by the Forbes 400, Zucman said.

Meanwhile, the tax rate that the bottom 50% of American taxpayers pay hasn't budged much over time.

Zucman and Emmanuel Saez — another economist at the University of California he's partnered with — have argued that the relatively small tax burdens of the wealthy are the product of decisions made by American lawmakers, whether directly or through congressional gridlock. Tax avoidance has also become more common.

Congress has cut taxes on capital gains and estates over the years. And the top income tax rates were slashed six times since 1980, some with the support of Democrats, The Washington Post reported. In 2010, President Obama delayed ending the George W. Bush tax cuts by two years, and Congress allowed it to expire in 2013.

President Trump's 2017 Republican tax cuts largely benefited wealthy citizens and corporations, experts say. They axed the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, while also reducing the top rates for individuals.

Many economists say that decades of income tax cuts in particular have led to the increasing concentration of wealth atop the economic pyramid and contributed to the accelerating inequality within US society, now at a record high according to the Census Bureau.

10 great physics courses you can take online right now, for free

 Cache   


  • You can find numerous physics courses currently available online for free.
  • Courses are taught by instructors with amazing credits like Nobel Prizes and field-defining work.
  • Topics range from introductory to Einstein's theory of relativity, particle physics, dark energy, quantum mechanics, and more.



The internet has in many ways fulfilled its educational promise and can be an amazing resource to learn pretty much anything. This is especially true if you have an interest in physics, the study of matter, energy and the fundamental interactions and forces of our universe. There are hundreds of great free courses available, with field-leading and even Nobel Prize-winning instructors.

To get you started, we distilled through the resources to come up with a list of 10 courses you can take right now and get your physics journey under way.

Here we go:

1. How Things Work: An Introduction to Physics


A great intro course that looks at physics in the context of everyday objects and processes. How does skating work? Why do things fall? The course uses the cases of ramps, wheels, bumper cars and more to illuminate the physics of life around you. It is taught by the University of Virginia physics professor Louis A. Bloomfield, a noted science educator, lecturer, author, as well as tv host.

ENROLL HERE

2. Fundamentals of Physics I


If you want to brush up on the essential concepts of physics, this course from Yale University might be for you. Taught by the physics professor Ramamurti Shankar, the lessons cover the principles and methods of physics, focusing on problem solving, quantitative reasoning and such concepts as Newtonian mechanics, special relativity, gravitation, waves, and thermodynamics.

ENROLL HERE

3. Astrophysics: The Violent Universe


Would you like to know about some of the most mysterious phenomena in the Universe? This fun course will bring you up to speed on white dwarfs, supernovae, neutron stars and black holes.

The 9-week course from the Australian National University has over 60,000 people enrolled, and is taught by Brian Schmidt, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist for his work on discovering dark energy. His co-teacher is the science educator and astrophysics researcher Paul Francis, who has a PhD from the University of Cambridge and has worked with NASA. He is particularly known for working on the spectra of quasars.

4. From the Big Bang to Dark Energy


Want to get a general introduction to some of the main ideas about how the Universe was formed and where it's going? The Big Bang, the formation of the elements, the Higgs Boson, dark matter, dark energy and anti-matter all feature prominently in this 14-hour course, offered by the University of Tokyo.

It is taught by Hitoshi Murayama, a University of California, Berkley physics professor and the Director of Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe.

5. Physics: Intro to Electricity & Magnetism


Want to understand Electricity and Magnetism? Take this course that currently has over 16,000 online students! This course was created by Scott Redmond, who worked previously in support of the International Space Station as a Mission Operations Analyst and conducted astronaut training before turning to teaching physics. The course offers 46 lectures in over 4 hours of video content and additional materials.

ENROLL HERE

6. Understanding Einstein: The Special Theory of Relativity


This interesting 8-week course, taught by Stanford University's Academic Director and historian of science Larry Randles Lagerstrom, goes deep into how Einstein came up with his famous theory. While setting up the background in both history and theory, the class provides a richer understanding of the theory of relativity itself.

ENROLL HERE

7. Quantum Mechanics: Wavefunctions, Operators, and Expectation Values


This advanced 7-week course from MIT will teach you the basics of quantum mechanics, introducing such concepts as wavefunctions, the Schrodinger equation, uncertainty relations and the properties of quantum observables. The course is intended for people with previous college-level calculus and physics courses under their belt.

The currently archived but available course is taught by the MIT physics professor Barton Zwiebach, a specialist in string theory and theoretical particle physics, along with MIT physics lecturer Jolyon Bloomfield.

ENROLL HERE

8. Particle Physics: an Introduction


If learning about the workings of very small things sounds appealing and you love supercolliders, this is the course for you. In this class you will learn about subatomic physics, including the properties of atomic nuclei, how to detect and accelerate particles, as well as about electromagnetic, strong and weak interactions. And, of course, the Higgs Boson makes an appearance. The lessons will also talk about how to connect particle physics to astrophysics and the larger questions of the Universe.

This 31-hour course from the University of Geneva is taught by professor Marin Pohl, who works in experimental particle physics on European colliders like the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) in Switzerland. His current focus is astroparticle physics in space. The course's second teacher is assistant professor Anna Sfyrla, an experimental particle physicist, who teachers at the University of Geneva.

ENROLL HERE

9. Fundamental Lessons from String Theory


Is the Universe made of strings? If you're ready to dive into some of the headier explanations for everything in existence, take this great master class which can be completed in a few hours. It is taught by the Harvard University physics professor and string theory expert Cumrun Vafa, and was developed with the world-renowned string theorist Andrew Strominger.

ENROLL HERE

10. Relativity and Astrophysics


If you want to further under understanding of Einstein's theory of relativity, you'd be interested in its connection to astronomy as explored in this course from Cornell University. Taught by astronomy professor David F. Chernoff, an expert in theoretical astrophysics, the lessons will deepen your knowledge by zeroing in on special and general relativity as well as experimental tests you can carry out to study them. You will also get to analyze paradoxes in special relativity and learn how relativity affects daily situations.

The prerequisite for this 4-week (currently archived but available) course requires at least high school level math and physics or an intro college course in both.

Roger Federer’s face to be minted on Swiss coin

 Cache   

By The Canadian Press

BERN, Switzerland — The Swiss government says it will produce a 20 franc silver coin with Roger Federer’s image on it.

The government says it’s the first time it has dedicated a commemorative coin to a living person.

A 50 franc gold coin with Federer’s image on it will be minted next year.

The government says the 20-time Grand Slam champion is “probably Switzerland's most successful individual sportsman, he is also the perfect ambassador for Switzerland.”

The “heads” side of the coin shows Federer playing a one-handed backhand.

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

 Cache   
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%].

How Google Is Stealing Your Personal Health Data

 Cache   

Expert Review by Maryam Heinen

Google, by far one of the greatest monopolies that ever existed, and poses a unique threat to anyone concerned about health, supplements, food and your ability to obtain truthful information about these and other issues.

This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented push to implement censorship across all online platforms, making obtaining and sharing crucial information about holistic health increasingly difficult.

As detailed in “Stark Evidence Showing How Google Censors Health News,” Google’s June 2019 update, which took effect June 3, effectively removed Mercola.com and hundreds of other natural health sites from Google search results. Google is also building a specific search tool for medical and health-related searches.1

And, while not the sole threat to privacy, Google is definitely one of the greatest. Over time, Google has positioned itself in such a way that it’s become deeply embedded in your day-to-day life, including your health.

In recent years, the internet and medicine have become increasingly intertwined, giving rise to “virtual medicine” and self-diagnosing — a trend that largely favors drugs and costly, invasive treatments — and Google has its proverbial fingers in multiple slices of this pie.

Health Data Mining Poses Unique Privacy Risks

For example, in 2016, Google partnered with WebMD, launching an app allowing users to ask medical questions.2 The following year, Google partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, launching a depression self-assessment quiz which turned out to be little more than stealth marketing for antidepressants.3,4

Google and various tech startups have also been investigating the possibility of assessing mental health problems using a combination of electronic medical records and tracking your internet and social media use.

In 2018, Google researchers announced they’d created an artificial intelligence-equipped retinal scanner that can appraise your risk for a heart attack.5

According to a recent Financial Times report,6 Google, Amazon and Microsoft collect data entered into health and diagnostic sites, which is then shared with hundreds of third parties — and this data is not anonymized, meaning it’s tied to specifically to you, without your knowledge or consent.

What this means is DoubleClick, Google’s ad service, will know which prescriptions you’ve searched for on Drugs.com, thus providing you with personalized drug ads. Meanwhile, Facebook receives information about what you’ve searched for in WebMD’s symptom checker.

“There is a whole system that will seek to take advantage of you because you’re in a compromised state,” Tim Lebert, a computer scientist at Carnegie Mellon University told Financial Times.7 “I find that morally repugnant.”

While some find these kinds of technological advancements enticing, others see a future lined with red warning flags. As noted by Wolfie Christl, a technologist and researcher interviewed by Financial Times:8

“These findings are quite remarkable, and very concerning. From my perspective, this kind of data are clearly sensitive, has special protections

Tech Companies Are Accessing Your Medical Records

As described in the featured Wall Street Journal video,9 a number of tech companies, including Amazon, Apple and the startup Xealth, are diving into people’s personal electronic medical records to expand their businesses.

Xealth has developed an application that is embedded in your electronic health records. Doctors who use the Xealth application — which aims to serve most health care sectors and is being rapidly adopted as a preferred “digital formulary”10 — give the company vast access to market products to their patients. The app includes lists of products and services a doctor believes might be beneficial for certain categories of patients.

When seeing a patient, the doctor will select the products and services he or she wants the patient to get, generating an electronic shopping list that is then sent to the patient. The shopping links direct the patient to purchase these items from Xealth’s third-party shopping sites, such as Amazon.

As noted in the video, “Some privacy experts worry that certain Xealth vendors can see when a patient purchased a product through Xealth, and therefore through their electronic health record.” In the video, Jennifer Miller, assistant professor at Yale School of Medicine says:

”In theory, it could boost adherence to physician recommendations, which is a huge challenge in the U.S. health care system. On the other side, there are real worries about what type of information Amazon in particular is getting access to.

So, from what I understand, when a patient clicks on that Xealth app and is taken to Amazon, the data are coded as Xealth data, which means Amazon likely knows that you purchased these products through your electronic health records.”

Amazon Is Mining Health Records

Amazon, in turn, has developed software, called Amazon Comprehend Medical, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to mine people’s electronic health records. This software has been sold to hospitals, pharmacies, researchers and various other health care providers.

The software reveals medical and health trends that might otherwise go unnoticed. As one example, given in the video, a researcher can use this software to mine tens of thousands of health records to identify candidates for a specific research study.

While this can certainly be helpful, it can also be quite risky, due to potential inaccuracies. Doctors may enter inaccurate data for a patient, for example, data that, were it accurate, would render that patient a poor test subject.

Apple is also getting in on the action through its health app. It facilitates access to electronic medical records by importing all your records directly from your health care provider. The app is meant to be “helpful” by allowing you to pull up your medical records on your iPhone and present them to any doctor, anywhere in the world.

What Does This Mean for Your Privacy

While tech companies like Amazon and Apple claim your data are encrypted (to protect it from hacking) and that they cannot view your records directly, data breaches have become so common that such “guarantees” are next to worthless.

As noted in the video by Dudley Adams, a data use expert at the University of California, San Francisco, “No encryption is perfect. All it takes is time for that encryption to be broken.” One very real concern about having your medical records hacked into is that your information may be sold to insurance companies and your employer, which they can then use against you, either by raising your rates or denying employment.

After all, sick people cost insurance companies and employers more money, so both have a vested interest in avoiding chronically ill individuals. So, were your medical records to get out, you could potentially become uninsurable or unemployable.

Google Collects Health Data on Millions of Americans

Getting back to Google, a whistleblower recently revealed the company amassed health data from millions of Americans in 21 states through its Project Nightingale,11,12 and patients have not been informed of this data mining. As reported by The Guardian:13

“A whistleblower who works in Project Nightingale … has expressed anger to the Guardian that patients are being kept in the dark about the massive deal.

The anonymous whistleblower has posted a video on the social media platform Daily Motion that contains a document dump of hundreds of images of confidential files relating to Project Nightingale.

The secret scheme … involves the transfer to Google of healthcare data held by Ascension, the second-largest healthcare provider in the U.S. The data is being transferred with full personal details including name and medical history and can be accessed by Google staff. Unlike other similar efforts it has not been made anonymous though a process of removing personal information known as de-identification …

Among the documents are the notes of a private meeting held by Ascension operatives involved in Project Nightingale. In it, they raise serious concerns about the way patients’ personal health information will be used by Google to build new artificial intelligence and other tools.”

The anonymous whistleblower told The Guardian:

“Most Americans would feel uncomfortable if they knew their data was being haphazardly transferred to Google without proper safeguards and security in place. This is a totally new way of doing things. Do you want your most personal information transferred to Google? I think a lot of people would say no.”

On a side note, the video the whistleblower uploaded to Daily Motion has since been taken down, with a note saying the “video has been removed due to a breach of the Terms of Use.”

According to Google and Ascension, the data being shared will be used to build a search tool with machine-learning algorithms that will spit out diagnostic recommendations and suggestions for medications that health professionals can then use to guide them in their treatment.

Google claims only a limited number of individuals will have access to the data, but just how trustworthy is Google these days? Something tells me that since the data includes full personal details, they’ll have no problem figuring out a way to eventually make full use of it.

Google Acquires Fitbit

In November 2019, the company also acquired Fitbit for $2.1 billion, giving Google access to the health data of Fitbit’s 25.4 million active users14 as well. While Google says it won’t sell or use Fitbit data for Google ads, some users have already ditched their devices for fear of privacy breaches.15 As reported by The Atlantic on November 14, 2019:16

“Immediately, users voiced concern about Google combining fitness data with the sizeable cache of information it keeps on its users. Google assured detractors that it would follow all relevant privacy laws, but the regulatory-compliance discussion only distracted from the strange future coming into view.

As Google pushes further into health care, it is amassing a trove of data about our shopping habits, the prescriptions we use, and where we live, and few regulations are governing how it uses these data.”

How HIPAA Laws Actually Allow This Data Mining

The HIPAA Security Rule is supposed to protect your medical records, preventing access by third parties — including spouses — unless you specifically give your permission for records to be shared. So, just how is it that Google and other tech companies can mine them at will?

As it turns out, the Google-Ascension partnership that gives Google access to medical data is covered by a “business associate agreement” or BAA. HIPAA allows hospitals and medical providers to share your information with third parties that support clinical activities, and according to Google’s interpretation of the privacy laws and HIPAA regulations, the company is not in breach of these laws because it’s a “business associate.” 

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights has opened an investigation into the legality of this arrangement.17 As reported by The Atlantic:18

“If HHS determines that Google and its handling of private information make it something more akin to a health care provider itself (because of its access to sensitive information from multiple sources who aren’t prompted for consent), it may find Google and Ascension in violation of the law and refer the matter to the Department of Justice for potential criminal prosecution.

But whether or not the deal goes through, its very existence points to a larger limitation of health-privacy laws, which were drafted long before tech giants started pouring billions into revolutionizing health care.”

Patients Bear the Risk While Third Parties Benefit

BAA agreements only allow for the disclosure of protected health information to entities that help the medical institution to perform its health care functions. The third party is not permitted to use the data for its own purposes or in any independent way.

I personally find it hard to believe that Google would not find a way to profit from this personal health data, considering its web-like business structure that ties into countless other for-profit parties. Even if they don’t, there does not appear to be any distinct advantages to patients whose records are being shared. As reported by STAT News:19

“Jennifer Miller, a Yale medical school professor who studies patient privacy issues, said the way health information is being shared, whether legal or not, is far from ideal. Patients — whose data are shared without their knowledge or specific consent — end up with all the risks, she said, while the benefits, financial or otherwise, go to Google, Ascension, and potentially future patients.”

As reported by Health IT Security20 in March 2019, Democratic senator of Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto, has also introduced a data privacy bill “that would require companies not covered by HIPAA to obtain explicit consent from patients before sharing health and genetic data.”

“The bill covers the collecting and storing of sensitive data, such as biometrics, genetics, or location data,” Health IT Security writes.21 “The consent form must outline how that data will be used.

And the bill will also let consumers request, dispute the accuracy of their records, and transfer or delete their data “without retribution” around price or services offered.

Further, organizations would need to apply three standards to all data collection, processing, storage, and disclosure. First, collection must be for a legitimate business or operation purpose, without subjecting individuals to unreasonable risks to their privacy.

Further, the data may not be used to discriminate against individuals for protected characteristics, such as religious beliefs. Lastly, companies may not engage in deceptive data practices.”

Google Partnership Spurs Class-Action Lawsuit

The fact that patients don’t want Google to access their medical records is evidenced by a class-action lawsuit filed in the summer of 2019 against the University of Chicago Medical Center which, like Ascension, allowed Google access to identifiable patient data through a partnership with the University of Chicago. As reported by WTTW News June 28, 2019:22

“All three institutions are named as defendants in the suit, which was filed … by Matt Dinerstein, who received treatment at the medical center during two hospital stays in 2015.

The collaboration between Google and the University of Chicago was launched in 2017 to study electronic health records and develop new machine-learning techniques to create predictive models that could prevent unplanned hospital readmissions, avoid costly complications and save lives …

The tech giant has similar partnerships with Stanford University and the University of California-San Francisco. But that partnership violated federal law protecting patient privacy, according to the lawsuit, by allowing Google to access electronic health records of ‘nearly every patient’ at the medical center from 2009 to 2016.

The suit also claims Google will use the patient data to develop commercial health care technologies … The lawsuit claims the university breached its contracts with patients by ‘failing to keep their medical information private and confidential.’ It also alleges UChicago violated an Illinois law that prohibits companies from engaging in deceptive practices with clients.”

Like Ascension, the University of Chicago claims no confidentiality breaches have been made, since Google is a business associate. However, the lawsuit claims HIPAA was still violated because medical records were shared that “included sufficient information for Google to re-identify patients.”

The lawsuit also points out that Google does indeed have a commercial interest in all of this information, and can use it by combining it with its AI and advanced machine learning.

According to the plaintiffs, Google’s acquisition of DeepMind “has allowed for Google to find connections between electronic health records and Google users’ data.” The news report also points out that:23

“In 2015, Google and DeepMind obtained patient information from the Royal Free NHS Trust Foundation to conduct a study, which a data protection watchdog organization said ‘failed to comply with data protection law.’”

Health-Tracking Shoes and Other Privacy Abominations

Google is also investing in other wearable technologies aimed at tracking users’ health data, including:24

  • Shoes designed to monitor your weight, movement and falls
  • “Smart” contact lenses for people with age-related farsightedness and those who have undergone cataract surgery25 (a glucose-sensing contact lens for diabetics was canceled in 2018 after four years of development26)
  • A smartwatch to provide information for clinical research27
  • An all-in-one insulin patch pump for Type 2 diabetics that is prefilled and connected to the internet28

Google also has big plans for expanding the use of AI in health care. According to CB Insights,29 “The company is applying AI to disease detection, new data infrastructure, and potentially insurance.”

As mentioned earlier, insurance companies can jack up premiums based on your health. So, what could possibly go wrong by having Google’s AI wired into the insurance market?

Google has also partnered with drugmaker Sanofi, which “will leverage Google’s cloud and AI technologies and integrate them into its biological innovations and scientific data which in turn will accelerate the medicine discovery process,” according to a Yahoo! Finance report.30

According to Yahoo! Finance, “the collaboration will aid in the identification of various type of treatments suitable for patients. Additionally, Google’s AI tools are likely to be utilized by Sanofi in improving marketing and supply efforts and in forecasting sales.”

In plain English, this partnership will help Sanofi sell more drugs, which can hardly be said to be for the patients’ best interest, but rather that of Sanofi and Google. As mentioned earlier, Verily, Google’s health care division, is also collaborating with Sanofi, Novartis, Otsuka and Pfizer to help them identify suitable patients for clinical drug trials.31

To boost drug sales even further, Verily is working with Walgreens to deploy a “medication adherence” project, in which patients are equipped with devices to ensure they’re taking their medication as prescribed.32

Amazon also plays a part in the drug adherence scheme with its recent buyout of Pillpack, an online pharmacy that offers prepackaged pill boxes with all the different medications you’re taking.

According to Yahoo! Finance, Amazon is also planning to develop at-home medical testing devices, and is rolling out the option to make medical-related purchases from Amazon using your health savings account. All of these things generate health-related data points that can then be used for other purposes, be it personalized marketing or insurance premium decisions.

Have You Had Enough of Google’s Privacy Intrusions Yet? 

Add to all of this data mining the fact that Google is actively manipulating search results and making decisions about what you’re allowed to see and what you’re not based on its own and third party interests — a topic detailed in a November 15, 2019 Wall Street Journal investigation.33 The dangers ahead should be self-evident.

“Hidden Figures”

New Logo and Identity for Hudson by Siegel+Gale

Established in 1987, Hudson (previously Hudson Group) is one of the largest travel retailers in North America with more than 1,000 stores in airports, commuter hubs, landmarks, and tourist locations. Most travelers will recognize them for the Hudson and Hudson News stores, their flagship brand, but they are also responsible for the retail airport experiences of brands like Dunkin, Coach, Pinkberry, FAO Schwartz, and more. From a few newsstands in New York's LaGuardia Airport when it first opened, Hudson is now present in over 80 airports and employs more than 10,000 people. The company has been owned by Dufry -- the Basel, Switzerland-based leading travel retailer that operates many of the ubiquitous duty-free shops -- since 2008 and has been a publicly-traded company since 2018. Last week, Hudson introduced a new identity designed by Siegel+Gale.

"While Hudson's original logo reflected the times in which it was created, and has served the company well, it's time to introduce travelers to Hudson's new look, feel and identity that reinforces our foundation and showcases where our brand is going," said Hope Remoundos, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer at Hudson. "Our new identity is sophisticated and confident, with a welcoming visual representation of the company's DNA that perfectly spotlights our people, brands, locations and, most importantly, our customers, and strengthens Hudson's authentic connection to travelers."

The design of the new logo represents the four cornerstones -- [ travel convenience, specialty retail, Duty Free and the most-recent addition, food and beverage] -- of the business as windows, which, together, form an iconic letter "H."

The old logo was mostly bad... the "H" and "G" interlocking could have been decent with better handling but the overall typography was lame and the giant swoosh was a perfect example of why swooshes need to be avoided in logos. The new logo smartly leaves everything from the old logo behind and introduces a more contemporary presence with an abstracted "H" hidden inside four rectangle shapes. I don't love it but I do like it well enough. Once you see the "H" it's then a little hard to find a visual connection for the four objects because let's face it, no one is going to go "Of course, those are the four cornerstones of Hudson" so I feel like they are a little ambiguous but I do like how they convert them into products in some of the applications (shown further down). The wordmark is fine... a little old school, but it can perhaps tie back to the company's newsstand roots. The blue is a lighter shade of that blue and it's neither good or bad, it just is.

New Logo and Identity for Hudson by Siegel+Gale
Logos of the two main retail brands of Hudson, which I understand will remain as they are.

What might be a problem down the road is having three "Hudson" brands out in the marketplace: there is Hudson, Hudson News, and now another Hudson which is not like the first Hudson because the latter Hudson doesn't have a retail presence as the former Hudson does yet you might still see the latter's branded items in the former as well as in Hudson News. See? It could be a problem. Unless Hudson and Hudson News change their logo to match the new Hudson, which I don't believe is the case.

The visual identity works as a fluid, modular asset, ideal for showcasing the brands that Hudson shares with travelers--the delightful surprises they have in store--in new and unexpected ways. The color palette helps Hudson stand out from its competitors. The team chose vastly more diverse and colorful expressions for Hudson's brand communications: just enough options to keep things feeling fresh, yet coherent. Using the logo as a supergraphic helps support the idea of how integral Hudson is to the traveler's experience, by appearing as a window framing the most memorable moments in travelers' journeys, and their end destinations. The new brand signals Hudson's immense expertise, illuminates its vast portfolio, celebrates team members and displays its understanding of travelers.

The applications are fine in terms of layout and design -- I like how they use the "H" icon as a framing/background device and the typography is passable -- but the photography is way too corny and the copywriting too contrived. As I mentioned earlier, the one solid idea in the applications is replacing the rectangles in the icon with products, as it hints at the delivery of myriad goods by Hudson.

Miss South Africa finalist launches new health and wellness brand

 Cache   
Story 353257788

Lee-Ann Liebenberg first drew public attention when she was selected as a Miss South Africa Finalist She has graced the pages of top international magazines like Cosmopolitan, FHM and Sports Illustrated, to mention a few. She puts health and vitality first, as an extension to that; she is now launching a new health and wellness brand called DR+SWISS into the South African market.

Liebenberg found out about the benefits of CBD during a difficult period in her life. She heard about CBD whilst her dad was being treated Rheumatoid arthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. “It was heart-breaking to see him battling with the effects of both the illness and the treatment, so when I heard that CBD could possibly alleviate some of these effects I decided to research it extensively and discovered that it could be used not only to relieve pain and inflammation but to support general health and homeostasis as well, says Liebenberg.”

Her father passed away in 2018, but the relief that he was able to obtain from CBD prompted Liebenberg and her husband who is a businessman, to consider developing a range of CBD products for the South African market. The active ingredient in DR+SWISS products is CBD (cannabidiol), a natural ingredient derived from the cannabis plant, which is used as a nutritional supplement to promote physical, emotional and social wellbeing. One of the challenges they faced was to find a provider with sound credentials and established credibility, especially one that could guarantee the origins, quality, and efficacy of its CBD oils.

“We couldn’t find a local producer that ticked all the boxes for us, so when we set out to develop the DR+SWISS range, we turned to the largest medical cannabis and CBD producer in Europe. It’s a company with more than 15 years of experience in producing a premium range of CBD oils of both exceptional quality and purity says Liebenberg.”

The international model said CBD oil helped her Dad during his illness and her aim is to bring its health and healing properties to South Africans. DR+SWISS is the only CBD brand in South Africa that can proudly claim to deliver the purest and broadest range of products specifically designed to cater for the whole family, starting with a 3% (300mg) concentration and increasing to a concentration of 30% (3 000mg). The fresh, aromatic oils are completely free of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).The chemical responsible for most of the psychological effects of cannabis, which makes it 100% safe to use, even for children.

The raw cannabis used to produce the CBD oils used in the range is sourced from selectively harvested crops in Holland, Spain, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, and are extracted using the latest Swiss supercritical extraction technology to ensure the utmost purity. Moreover, DR+SWISS products also undergo lab testing at industry leader, Fundación CANNA, to guarantee the highest levels of purity and active ingredient accuracy.

Session on "Data driven materials science" at the DPG Spring Meeting (Dresden, Germany)

 Cache   

Dear colleagues, 

we would like to make you aware of the topical session 

"Data driven materials science"

which is part of the MM program during the DPG Spring Meeting 2020. The latter takes place March 15-20, 2020, in Dresden.  

If you are performing experiments or simulations in this emerging field, you are most welcome to contribute your abstract. You can find the session at the bottom of the list "Themenbereiche" on the abstract submission webpage 
https://www.dpg-tagung.de/dd20/submission.html ]. 

In addition we will have some outstanding invited talks given by (some of them not yet confirmed):
- Tilmann Beck (TU Kaiserslautern)
- Cecilie Hebert (EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland)
- Jan Janssen (MPIE Düsseldorf)
- Marcus J. Neuer (BFI Düsseldorf)
- Stefan Sandfeld (TU Freiberg)

Please, note that this is session is not identical with the symposium "Big data driven materials science (SYBD)", which is on invitation only. Our session in MM is more focussed on structure-composition-property relationships in materials science. Please see the abstract below for details. 

We are looking foward to a vivid session on innovative developments!  Abstract:----------
This session covers innovative high-throughput and materials-informatics approaches for the discovery, description and design of materials. The contributions should address recent developments in the fields of data mining, machine learning, and artificial intelligence for the identification of structure-composition-property relationships in the highly diverse, but often sparse materials data space. Contributions from experiment such as diffraction and various tomography techniques, materio-graphic feature identification, as well as simulation results from the atomistic up to the continuum level are foreseen. A particular focus will be on the consideration of extended materials defects (grain boundaries, stacking faults, dislocation cores) and microstructures. Furthermore, submissions of contributions on accumulating, analyzing, interpreting, storing, and sharing fundamental knowledge about materials is solicited. Contributions may range, and preferably bridge, from physics-based materials understanding to data-driven and application-oriented development.
