Where does the impeachment inquiry go now?

 Cache   
The U.S. House of Representatives impeachment inquiry hearings picked up steam this week, as nine current and former U.S. officials testified on President Donald Trump's controversial dealings with the Ukrainian government. With three full days of testimony this week, and two the previous, International Edition’s Steve Miller speaks with Dr. Craig Albert, a political science professor at Augusta University, to unpack as to what the testimony meant to the Democrats and Republicans. Plus, a former CIA officer who pleaded guilty to an espionage conspiracy with China faces sentencing. The AP's Matt Small reports. In a major policy reversal, South Korea said Friday it has decided to continue a 2016 military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan that it previously said it would terminate amid ongoing tensions over wartime history and trade. The decision comes at a time when the United States has requested substantial increases to what it wants South Korea and Japan to pay for hosting US forces in their respective countries. International Edition’s Steve Miller speaks with John Grover Korean Studies Fellow at the Institute for the National Interest. Later in the program... after three years of investigation, Israel's Attorney General has decided to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in three separate cases. The most serious charge is bribery, and it is the first time in Israel's history that a sitting prime minister has been indicted. Linda Gradstein reports Netanyahu accused the attorney general of trying to stage a coup. Turning to world news... British police say they have arrested a 23-year-old man from Northern Ireland over the deaths of 39 people from Vietnam who were found in a refrigerated container truck last month. The top U.S. representative in Taiwan says Washington is working with it to combat efforts by Beijing to influence upcoming elections on the island. Police will be out in force at polling stations in Hong Kong this weekend as keenly contested local elections take place amid ongoing anti-government protests. A rare near-mint condition copy of the first Marvel Comics comic book has sold at auction in Dallas for $1.26 million. A jury in New Zealand found a man guilty on Friday of murdering British backpacker Grace Millane, almost a year after the incident took place. Reuters' Jayson Albano has the details. Finally, a new report finds most adolescents around the world do not get enough physical activity on a daily basis to be healthy and to stay healthy as adults. Lisa Schlein reports this World Health Organization study presents the first-ever global estimates of insufficient physical activity among adolescents aged 11 to 17.  
          

Mike Bloomberg says China is a democracy and Xi Jinping answers to his ‘constituents’

 Cache   

Michael ‘Mike’ Bloomberg didn’t get to be billionaire by being a dufus and doing no research. So why doe he tell Margret Hoover that China’s President Xi Jinping asnwer to his “constituents” and leader through the will of the people. Jinpins is, says Bloomberg, not a dictator.

in 2012, Xi walked at the front of the Politburo Standing Committee onto the stage at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. In 2017, “Xi Jinping thought” – an articulation of his political philosophy – was “enshrined in the constitution of the Chinese Communist Party”.

Bloomberg created the news organisation Bloomberg

Bloomberg v Bloomberg

In October 2019, it reported:

But the unrest underscored growing uneasiness with Xi’s style of rule, with U.S. lawmakers threatening sanctions over the government’s handling of Hong Kong and China’s mass detention of ethnic Uighurs. Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council — controlled by the pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party — issued a statement condemning China’s “one party dictatorship.”

China: the dictatorship without a dictator nearly all the Chinese never voted for.

台湾の地すべり実験室 ―― 大量の化学反応因子噴出による気候への影響など

 Cache   

In Taiwan, Taroko National Park, famous for a precipitous marble gorge that cuts through it, is in a futile fight with gravity. The scars of at least a dozen landslides punctuate the view in all directions. Maintenance crews are perpetually spraying concrete on slopes in a last-ditch effort to stabilize them. The park gives out safety helmets for free, and strongly encourages visitors to wear them. All this moving rock and soil makes for a perfect laboratory for a team of researchers from the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam. For the past 3 years, they have scrambled and rappelled across the park, installing dozens of instruments in what will end up being Taiwan's most comprehensive landscape dynamics observatory. One goal is to monitor landslides and understand their triggers. A bigger aim is to investigate their hidden impact on the climate: As massive chemical reactors, landslides draw carbon dioxide out of the sky and sometimes belch it out, too. Understanding their role as both carbon source and sink could help researchers better model the carbon cycle that ultimately controls our planet's climate and habitability.

Three more Tzu Chi St. Maarten volunteers certified as commissioners

 Cache   

SINT MAARTEN (CUL DE SAC) - Three more Tzu Chi St. Maarten volunteers made the commitment to continue giving of themselves to relieve the burden of others by becoming certified Tzu Chi Commissioners in Taiwan recently. 

The three grateful volunteers, Regina Janga, Merlyn Schaminee and Hilda Carrasco, were personally certified as Tzu Chi Commissioners by Tzu Chi Founder Master Cheng Yen during the 2019 overseas Tzu Chi Commissioner Training Retreat held in Taipei, Taiwan from November 5 to 12. Also attending the training were Commissioner Sandra Cheung and volunteer Reinier Philip Maarten van Delden. The delegation returned to St. Maarten on November 14. 

This is the second year since Hurricane Irma that volunteers are committing their vows into action by selflessly giving of themselves with great love to relieve the suffering of others.  On November 21, 2018, St. Maarten volunteers Angela Heyliger, Saskia Amatdawoed and Jane Sanchez were also certified as Commissioners. 

This year 26 countries participated in the training and a total of 370 volunteers from around the world were certified as commissioners. 

By attending the 2019 overseas Tzu Chi Commissioners Training, participants learn about the dharma, follow Tzu Chi’s etiquette techniques and diligently learn the spirit of senior Tzu Chi volunteers. The hope is that participants are moved by what they experience and that they take a sense of mission back to their respective countries and pass on the Dharma and spread seeds of love in the hearts of others. 

With no idea what Tzu Chi was about, van Delden accompanied his partner Carrasco on the trip. He was moved by what he saw, what he heard, and what Tzu Chi has done around the world. 

“This trip was one of the best times I have ever experienced,” van Delden said. “I was reminded of what humbleness and compassion really means. All the people from different parts of the world - the way they unite, share, care, respect and love one another (as) one family (was humbling). We were taught how important vegan food is for our body; how not to waste resources such as food and water, and how important it is for us to recycle our garbage so that it becomes our treasure.” 

Carrasco said she feels blessed to have been certified as a Commissioner for the Tzu Chi Foundation. “It makes me feel blessed and fortunate... Meeting Master Cheng Yen and the whole great Tzu Chi family from all over the world is something really big.  My words will fall short. You have to live it and experience it,” the newly certified commissioner said. 

“As I told Master Cheng Yen, her teachings are the salvation of the planet.  Learning to love living beings, looking at them with love and compassion, helping the sick, the elderly and caring for the planet through recycling is beautiful. It is what humans need to make the world a better place. As the teacher says: A healthy heart can heal the earth. Seeing all that the teacher has managed to do with all the love, always thinking about how to relieve the suffering of others. It is seeing God, Buddha on earth. Seeing everything that the teacher and thousands of volunteers have done, makes me feel that I have not done anything yet, and as she says, “there is no time, we must seize time… It is time to fulfill our mission and make a better world.” 

Carrasco said she is grateful to Cheung for trusting her and giving her the blessing of being in Tzu Chi, as well as her sister Angela, for putting her on the path to Tzu Chi.  She also thanked her fellow Tzu Chi volunteers for translating for her, her partner for supporting her and her Tzu Chi family for their love and support. 

Janga said this was her second trip to Taiwan with the St. Maarten Tzu Chi Foundation. She was very happy to have been involved in this healthy event where everyone feels as though they are one family in the world.    

She said there is no discrimination; the mind, body and soul are purified, and participants learn to love and care for each other in the world. She returned to St. Maarten with a healthy body and mind. She was inspired about the story of how Tzu Chi Foundation started with 30 housewives. “When we all take this step, it is easy to purify the whole world, which is our home,” said Janga. 

Schaminee described the trip as being very educational and inspiring. “My first encounter with Dharma Master Cheng Yen was very touching. It was the moment Master put my name tag on me. The name given by Master to me is “Ming Chung” (holding on to the moment). As a Tzu Chi commissioner, I am willing to work hard and always keep in all my doings: speak kind words, think good thoughts, do good deeds, and walk the right path. Thank you, Commissioner Sandra, to have seen the potential in me to become a commissioner. 

And thank you for this unique opportunity,” Schaminee said.

Managed to get a semi tie buckle embedded in my tire going that speed, and I didn feel it. (About twenty miles after getting the ticket, the differential caught fire. wholesale vibrators

dildos I've blushed furiously when my hands have been offered to the service of another, and I found myself being ordered to pleasure myself. Under the watchful eyes of someone commanding me to make myself come, and not to stop until I was permitted to stop.

The Croupier arrived in a lovely, hard plastic case with metal clasps on either side of the lid which hold it firmly in place.

sex toys "You know, my first trip to Israel, and only trip to Israel, was in 1998. And I remember being in a hotel room and opened the curtain over the Old City, and the sun was just coming up, and it just glowed. It was golden. Two models for a magazine that carried sexually explicit photographs were actually jailed on obscenity changes because one of them was an amputee, and her amputated leg was being engaged sexually. For those of you who don't know, I have a moderate disability on my right hand, due to a severe childhood accident, which disfigured three of my fingers (two are highly obvious, the third, visually, is much mopre subtle, it is just markedly curved). When I was first sexually active, I would flinch if someone even kissed those fingers the same way as they would kiss my "normal" hand. sex toys

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. I don't burn this one too often, because it does tend to burn on the faster side (as all beeswax candles will do, since there's nothing to slow the wick down), but when I do I'm always happy that I picked it up.

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.

Don't use strong soaps on them and keep in a cool dark place." Additionally, one of the negative aspects of this type of material that really gets on my nerves is that it picks up everything dog hair, lint, dirt; you name it you'll probably find it stuck to your toy at some point. vibrators

Just as we said before that many things shouldn't be seen by the public, they were all private.

Becoming aware of that and kind of making it a point to remind myself of this is helping me appreciate myself more, too. I really actually adore little quirks, things that set people apart, things that others might view as "flaws", and there's really no reason that others might not appreciate things that I consider "flaws" in myself."The question is not who will let me, but who is going to stop me."

Hong Kong Unrest Rages on as Police Clash With Protesters

Hong Kong Unrest Rages on as Police Clash With Protesters(Bloomberg) -- Clouds of tear gas returned to Hong Kong over the weekend as police and protesters clashed, signaling pro-democracy rallies are set to drag on after demonstrators got a boost from an election win and support from the U.S. Congress.Tensions rose in the former British colony -- a special administrative region of China since 1997 -- as thousands of black-clad protesters marched in the busy tourist district of Tsim Sha Tsui on Sunday afternoon. Unrest had been brewing since late Saturday, when a group blocked roads and set fire to a subway station entrance.The violence took a pause with the elections a week earlier, as Hong Kong residents handed an overwhelming victory to pro-democracy candidates in a vote for local district councils on Nov. 24. While the officials they elected represent what’s considered as the lowest rung of the government, the win was a stunning repudiation of the city’s Beijing-backed government. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam didn’t make any new concessions to protesters after the poll, a move that could have fueled the anger seen over the weekend.At the Tsim Sha Tsui event, police said smoke grenades were hurled by what it labeled “rioters” to cause fear and panic among demonstrators, prompting law enforcement action that included tear gas to disperse the crowd. Bricks were thrown at police officers in the area, as well as in nearby Whampoa, where shops were also vandalized. One passerby was attacked, police said.Earlier in the day, people carrying U.S. flags and banners marched to the U.S. consulate in a peaceful rally to express gratitude after President Donald Trump signed legislation last week in support of the demonstrators. While the crowds have dispersed Sunday night, scores of police officers in riot gear were still seen lining the streets as of 2 a.m. on Monday.MTR Corp., the city’s subway operator, said it expects rail and bus services to resume normally on Monday, with the possibility that some stations and rail sections may close early, especially on weekends. The University station on the East Rail line will remain shut for repairs, and entrances and exits to some stops that had excessive damage from the protests will also not be accessible.Subway stations and even tracks were vandalized during the protests in the past few months, with MTR’s crews rushing through repairs. The stock -- once one of Hong Kong’s safest stock bets -- has lost more than a fifth of its value since its peak this year in July, making it the second-worst performer on Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index. The stock is poised to recover quickly when the city’s situation eventually settles, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. analysts, who’ve upgraded MTR to buy from neutral.Police ConductMeanwhile, China said it “strongly” opposed an opinion piece by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in the South China Morning Post on Saturday, accusing her of meddling in the country’s affairs and emboldening Hong Kong protesters to commit violence.Bachelet urged the city’s government to conduct a “proper independent and impartial judge-led investigation” into reports of excessive use of force by police. She also called on Lam’s administration to “prioritize a long-overdue process” of meaningful and inclusive dialogue with the people of Hong Kong.Hong Kong’s newly appointed police chief, Chris Tang, said an independent probe into the use of force by police would be unjust, the South China Morning Post reported Sunday, citing comments he made in a radio program.China has also arrested two overseas nationals for their alleged involvement in Hong Kong’s protest movement, state newspaper Southern Daily reported, citing information from the national security agency. Taiwanese Lee Meng-chu and Lee Henley Hu Xiang of Belize were arrested by the national security authorities in the southern Guangdong province, the local paper said in two reports published Saturday.(Updates with clashes in fourth paragraph, subway plans for Monday in sixth.)To contact the reporter on this story: Manuel Baigorri in Hong Kong at mbaigorri@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Linus Chua, Tony CzuczkaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

RIP Godfrey Gao

 Cache   
.
I was shocked last night to read that the Taiwanese-born and Canadian-bred model turned actor Godfrey Gao, only thirty-five years young, had died -- he's been one of our favorite posting subjects all this decade, even though we never got to see any of his actual acting. His only real role over here was in the Mortal Instruments movie -- otherwise he mostly worked in China, because our movie-makers are fools who've only recently realized that Asian Men can be Leading Men. I had been hoping that this turning point post Crazy Rich Asians might mean work over here for Godfrey specifically,  since he's one of the most beautiful humans I've ever seen -- he made beautiful Henry Golding look like a puddle of puke! -- but obviously that's not to be. Our thoughts are with the people he knew in the real world today, and feel free to click back through our archives for a ton and I do mean a ton of photos.

Samsung, fabricant de procesoare pentru Intel (Componente PC)

 Cache   

Deşi procesul de fabricaţie pe 14nm folosit de Intel pentru actuala generaţie de procesoare este în uz încă din anul 2014 şi ar fi trebuit să ajungă demult la maturitate, Intel încă are dificultăţi cu livrarea unui volum suficient de chip-uri pe 14 către consumatori. Aici intră în scenă Samsung, noul partener Intel preluând o parte din activitatea de producţie în fabricile proprii.

Dificultăţile de aprovizionare cu procesoare pe 14 nm datează din a doua jumătate a anului trecut, situaţia devenind atât de rea încât directorul diviziei de marketing şi comunicare a Intel, Michelle Johnston Holthaus, şi-a cerut scuze public săptămâna trecută pentru întârzierile constante în onorarea comenzilor, afirmând că dezvoltarea pieţei de PC-uri în acest an „a depăşit eforturile noastre”. Soluţia găsită de Intel este contractarea altor fabricanţi de semiconductoare pentru acoperirea cererii.

Unul din motivele pentru care Intel se confruntă cu aceste probleme este concentrarea investiţiilor pe dezvoltarea procesului de fabricaţie pe 10 nm şi modernizarea facilităţilor de producţie pentru tranziţie la noul nod de fabricaţie în cel mai scurt timp posibil. Cu toate acestea, pot trece ani până când Intel va putea pune efectiv planul în aplicare. Între timp, Intel trebuie să continue să vândă cipuri pe piaţă folosind procesul de fabricaţie pe 14 nm, oricât de învechit pare acesta în comparaţie cu cel pe 7nm folosit de rivalul AMD.

Important de spus, implementarea procesului pe 10 nm gândită de Intel este din multe puncte de vedere mai ambiţioasă şi superioară tehnologic celei pe 7nm folosită în prezent de AMD, promiţând microprocesoare cu densitate mai mare de tranzistori şi mai eficiente din punct de vedere al consumului de energie.

Din păcate pentru Intel, nu există prea multe opţiuni pentru preluarea comenzilor pe 14nm, TSMC şi Samsung Electronics din Taiwan fiind cam singurii capabili să livreze un volum de producţie suficient de mare. Având în vedere faptul că TSMC este partenerul AMD, cel mai mare rival al companiei, era lesne de înţeles că o colaborare cu acesta ar fi fost greu de obţinut în condiţii avantajoase. Astfel, Samsung a rămas ultima şi probabil singura soluţie fezabilă.

Fără îndoială, sud-coreenii au mult de câştigat din colaborarea cu Intel. Compania încerca de ceva timp să găsească noi motoare de creştere, după ce veniturile din producţia de memorii au scăzut, odată cu prăbuşirea preţurilor spre noi minime istorice.

Principálem loutkového divadla v Americe

 Cache   
Autor článku: 
Irena Koušková

Emigroval jste do USA v roce 1979 ve svých 29 letech. Co jste dělal v Čechách předtím, než jste odešel za hranice?

Vždy mě to táhlo k divadlu, na FFUK jsem ale studoval francouzštinu a filozofii. Pak jsem zradil svou první lásku, francouzštinu, a zamiloval se do angličtiny, do Shakespeara. V roce 1972 jsem se dostal do Anglie (vyprosil a vyběhal jsem si „devizový příslib“, 50 tolarů na 10 dní a potřebných půl tuctu papírů na „výjezdní doložku“ na neuvěřitelné dva týdny). Pak jsem v Londýně spal v Hyde Parku se stovkami hipísáků a chodil dvakrát denně do divadla…

Nakonec jsem se vrátil do Čech, abych nepoškodil rodinu, i když mě lákalo a lákali jiní tam zůstat. Jenže jsem tu cestu stopem o pár dní přetáhl a sebrali mi pas, takže jsem pak pět let nemohl ani do NDR. 

Na Lidové škole umění jsem při univerzitě studoval herectví u paní Jiřiny Steimarové a ta mi po promoci (diplomka o franko-kanadské literatuře) zařídila audičky (v uměleckém slangu zkušební předehrávky pro případné využití v repertoáru - pozn. red.) v Šumperku, kde jsem pak strávil jeden rok jako herec s plným platem. Jinak jsem byl vždy na volné noze. Zažil jsem tam krásu sezóny v repertoárovém divadle, to je něco, co v USA neexistuje. Jenomže politická situace v umění pro mě byla nepřijatelná. Jen tak tak jsem unikl propagandistickým hrám, SSM, nebo podpisu Anticharty. Volnější už to bylo v Polsku, kam jsem se jezdil nadýchat čerstvého vzduchu. Taky jsem, víceméně ilegálně, dělal asistenta režie u Adama Hanuszkiewicze v Teatru Narodowym na Racinově Faidře.

Moje cesta do Ameriky v roce 1978-79 vedla přes Itálii a Francii. Dostal jsem výjezdní doložku, abych mohl konzultovat s autorem Primo Levim překlad knihy Periodická tabulka. Setkal jsem se s ním, konzultoval, ale řekl jsem mu, že překlad zřejmě nevyjde, protože já zůstanu na západě, což byl podle komunistických zákonů zločin. On na to řekl, „Cokoli je dobré pro vás, už to vyšlo ve více než třiceti překladech, tak o jeden víc nebo míň...“

 

Dělal jste loutkové divadlo už doma v Česku nebo až ve Státech?

Kromě rodinného loutkového divadla mé maminky a jejích sourozenců z 20. let, s nímž jsem si hrál se svým bratrem a sestrou, jsem nic o loutkách nevěděl. Myslel jsem, že loutky nemají budoucnost, že už jsou zastaralé. Ale někdy v roce ´75 jsem inscenoval s tím maminčiným dětským divadélkem pětiminutovou parodii na pimprlovou komedii, při které jsem vlastně objevil, že loutky skýtají spoustu možností. A pak přišel blesk z čistého nebe, objev Divadla Drak, které okouzlilo pražskou uměleckou smetánku. Já k ní nepatřil, ale nějak jsem se k tomu nachomejtl. Kombinace loutek a živých herců mě tehdy v 70. letech uchvátila a inspiruje mě dodnes.

 

Jak jste se dostal k loutkovému divadlu v Americe?

Do Ameriky jsem se bál. Nečekali na mě sice při přistání gangsteři, které jsem si představoval podle detektivek a zřejmě i komunistické propagandy, ale šokovala mě tehdy špína na letišti a odpadky v ulicích. Ale dalo se tam dělat divadlo i s přízvukem, což by v Anglii asi moc nešlo. A tak jsem se od poslíčka na kole přes taxikáře v New Yorku dostal přece jen k divadlu. Začal jsem jako technikář ve slavném Roundabout Theatre, tenkrát ještě „jen“ off-Broadway na 23. ulici (jsou stále ještě nekomerční, ale dnes mají pět scén, z toho tři na Broadwayi).  Byly to podstatně menší peníze než za volantem taxíku, (což taky nebyl žádný zlatý důl). Ale vydělával jsem si divadlem! Už brzy po příjezdu jsem s překvapením zjistil, že tu herci, profesionální, vystudovaní, talentovaní herci, dělají své „showcase“ často zadarmo, nebo do toho i vrazí vlastní tolary!, aby na sebe upozornili, což je běžná praxe. Taky jsem četl anglicky tradiční české pohádky s doprovodem jazzové nebo rockové muziky, většinou pro dospělé, což jsem trochu dělal už v Čechách.

Po dvou malých rolích v Jindřichu IV. (zadarmiko) a Richardovi II. (jeden tolar US za představení!) jsem se pak dostal k avantgardní produkci Goethova Fausta II. V divadle Patchoworks přepisovali a předělávali na modernu ten nesmrtelný a nehratelný druhý díl. Zmínil jsem se režisérce o tradici loutkového Fausta, a ona na to, ať si vyberu scénu, přepíšu ji a udělám s loutkami. Loutky mi posílali z Čech, první byl čert, kterého maminka vymámila od sběratele pana Vorla (za hezkejch pár tisíc), dostal oficiální „výjezdní doložku“. Ještě má od strážců hranic razítko na kopytě a na chodidle. Projekt Faust skončil a z nečinnosti by čert začal dělat neplechu, tak jsem ho začal montovat do těch pohádek. Přišla mi pak ještě od sestry čarodějnice a princezna.

Jednou jsme s těmi třemi loutkami vystupovali v kostele Jana Husa v srdci bývalé české a slovenské čtvrti na Manhattanu, na 74. ulici. No a já v tom českém newyorském kostele udělal objev, který pak dal jasný směr mému dalšímu životu v Americe…

Jedna z posledních českých babiček té presbyteriánské farnosti byla vrátná, paní Lučártová (Luchart), a ta mi řekla, že se tu hrávala loutková představení. Vyptával jsem se na osud loutek, až mě pustila podívat se na půdu − a tam jsem našel několik desítek starodávných loutek, s nimiž kdysi hrávali krajané divadlo, některým kouskům bylo i přes dvě stě let… Čekaly tu vlastně na mě schované na půdě přes padesát roků.

Dlužno říci, že krajané tady měli svou enklávu v pár tuctů ulic kolem 2. Avenue, říkalo se tomu Little Bohemia, a provozovali zde také loutkové divadlo, takže jsem navázal na dávnou tradici. Zajímavé je, že základ české komunity tvořili dělníci z tabákoven, např. z Čáslavi nebo Kutné Hory, kteří tu balili doutníky. Mezi Kutnohorci byli i řezbáři svatých, pro něž výroba loutek byla něco jako melouch.

 

A to už jste přemýšlel o vlastním divadle?

Ještě jsem pár let dělal v černém divadla Ta Fantastika, taková zajížďka, ale v roce 1990 jsem s Honzou „Čágem“ Ungrem (také se mihnul a pak vyhnul divadlu Ta Fa) spoluzaložil Československo-americké loutkové divadlo, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre (CAMT) a stal se ze mě loutkoherec, ale také režisér, překladatel i autor, technikář, švadlenka marionetových kostýmů, takový americký Kopecký (já bych se tak neodvážil nazvat, ale několik krajanů mě tak oslovilo, tak to přijímám). Začali jsme samozřejmě Faustem, což byla vlastně naše jediná tradičně zahraná komedie. Adaptovaných i původních her je už více než dva tucty, odehráli jsme stovky představení, vystupovali ve 34 státech USA a na mezinárodních festivalech ve Francii, Pákistánu, Turecku, Polsku nebo Koreji. Za vším je ale nejen vlastní kumšt, ale také hodiny strávené vyřizováním administrativy, techniky a sháněním grantů.

 

Jak vzpomínáte na 80. léta strávená s Ta Fantastikou Petra Kratochvíla?

Měl jsem z Čech úžasnou vzpomínku na Petrovu roli v Ypsilonce, kde ho jako Michelangelova Davida sochal nezapomenutelně Vašek Helšus. Sešel jsem se s Petrem v New Yorku jen tak na pokec, ale ukázalo se, že je to vlastně jakási přijímací zkouška: Petrovi se rozešel soubor a hledal nové „černé vzadu,“ ty neviditelné manipulátory létajících rekvizit, kteří vytvářejí kouzlo černého divadla. Mluvili jsme pár minut a nabídl mi vstup do souboru. Ještě s neúplným obsazením jsme přezkušovali představení „Snu,“ protože se mělo jet za tři měsíce na festival „Sigma“ v Bordeaux. Poprvé jsem tak dostal v Americe zaplaceno za „hraní divadla.“ I když to byl honorář jen za ten týden ve Francii, a za tři měsíce zkoušek nic, byl to obrovský skok nazpátek nebo vpřed?, k obživě divadlem. A protože to bylo představení beze slov, neměli ani viditelní herci, Petr a Milada Kratochvílovi vpředu, a my neviditelní vzadu, žádný problém s přízvukem. 

Všichni měli samozřejmě ještě různá zaměstnání, Petr a Milada dvě nebo tři, dělali v restauraci Ruč, v obchodě s cukrovinkami na Nádraží střed (Grand Central), Petr byl liftboy v Národní budově, kde ještě fungovalo slavné divadlo Manhattan Theatre Club. Po nocích spolu vyráběli rekvizity a Milada šila kostýmy, barevné i černé sametové, a sametové pozadí a šály do „černé díry“, kde jsme v temnotách my nováčci klopýtali jeden přes druhého. Zkoušelo se v maličké klubovně Bohemian Hall v Astorii, která stojí uprostřed poslední velké zahradní pivnice v New Yorku.

Dalšími členy byli kromě mě a mé partnerky Bonnie Stein také Lenka Pichlíková, Consuela Morávková, Honza „Čágo“ Unger (kdysi jsem se mu obdivoval, když zazářil jako klaun v Cirkusu Alfred Ctibora Turby), Libor Hon (později se přidala jeho žena Alexandra), Richard Balous, Zdeněk a Jitka Lichtág-Loveček a Pavel „Kefalín“ Berka, osvětlovač Jarda Hruška a jeho žena Tracy. Na někoho jsem asi zapomněl, bylo nás 12, někdy 13, jindy 11, počty i tváře se časem měnily.

Po úspěchu v Bordeaux jsme příští rok jeli na dvouměsíční evropský zájezd. Začal v Monaku v Divadle Princezny Grace (bývalé filmové hvězdy Grace Kelly), kde bylo za branou pro kulisy slyšet šumění příboje. Pokračovali jsme přes Francii, Belgii a Lucembursko do Itálie a Švýcarska. A po té slávě se všichni, včetně Petra a Milady, vrátili nazpátek k poslíčkování, za pulty lahůdkářství nebo číšničení. Milada Kratochvílová (dnes už opět Janderová) držela Petra i celé divadlo úžasným způsobem, a já začal pomáhat s produkcí. Když nám ve zkušebně vypnula elektrárna Con Edison nejdřív topení a pak elektřinu, Milada se s Petrem a většinou souboru přestěhovali za teplem na Floridu. Já dostal od nakladatele zálohu na svou verzi sedmi českých pohádek, „Twelve Iron Sandals“, tak jsem si řekl, na půl roku mi to vydrží, koupil jsem si odvážně první osobní kompjůtr, Kaypro II X, a odjel na Floridu taky. Stal jsem se pak Petrovým a Miladiným parťákem, a příštích pět let jsem pendloval mezi Floridou a New Yorkem. 

Naučil jsem se tu dělat veškerou administrativu, psal jsem žádosti o granty (bez velkého úspěchu) a spolu s Bonnie jsme zorganizovali zájezdy do Hong Kongu, Singapuru, Malajsie a na Taiwan a nějaká představení na Floridě, v Kalifornii a jinde po Americe. Brzy po příjezdu na Floridu jsem dostal životní šanci, roli hlavního padoucha v akčním filmu Chucka Norrise: „Invasion USA“. Byly to obrovské peníze a obrovská sranda, měl jsem skákat se samopalem nad hlavou z helikoptery do příboje coby velitel diverzní jednotky Varšavského paktu. A byl jsem ten poslední padouch, ten co dlouho uniká, přežije až do konce filmu... Pak mě měl hrdina Chuck klasicky odstřelit nějakým tím raketometem a mé tělo mělo letět v plamenech skrz okna vládní budovy v Atlantě. Natáčení se odkládalo, až mělo začít ve stejný den, kdy nám začínal jeden z pouhých dvou zájezdů roku, pět představení důležitého festivalu v Jižní Karolíně. Ta Fantastika byla můj vlastní soubor, záviselo na mně dvanáct lidí, kteří přes dva měsíce dřeli na zkouškách. A tak tu prčovní roli hlavního padoucha dostal blonďatej Rus, kterého jsem na audičkách přehrál.

Ta Fa byl můj soubor, jenomže umělecky jsme si naše sny neplnili, pořád to byla ta zastaralá šantánová estetika, se kterou začínal Srnec v 60. letech. Tak jsem se v roce ´89 s těžkým srdcem Miladě a Petrovi omluvil a černého divadla nechal. Vzdal jsem se svého třetinového podílu ještě včas, než do toho přišly opravdové peníze, a šel třít loutkářskou bídu. Od milionů už by pak bylo těžší odejít. Ale byla to úžasná škola pro další práci v „chudém divadle“.

 

Jaký je váš loutkový repertoár v „chudém divadle“? Klasické české pohádky prý potřebovaly další vysvětlení kontextu… O co šlo, jak to vypadalo?

Třeba Vodník se musí vysvětlit, protože neexistuje (nebo o něm nevědí) v Americe. Coby Vodní duch (Water Spirit nebo Water Goblin) byl ale velice známý a blízký indiánskému publiku, pro něž jsem hrál na pár tuctu rezervací v Idahu, Dakotách, Arizoně a Novém Mexiku. Hrát na střední škole pro dospěláky, pro pět set apačskejch válečníků, kteří nehnou ani svalem na tváři, je skutečnej zážitek. Na jihozápadě v „bible belt“ se zase bojí pustit do školy ďábla, neznají komického folklorního čerta. 

V pohádkovém představení spojuji tři klasické pohádky povídáním o původu loutek, o českých, slovenských a rusínských přistěhovalcích. Málo dětí, ale i dospělých mělo ponětí, kde bylo Československo, na otázku z pódia odpovídali v Rusku, v Pensylvánii, v Africe. A najednou jsem po roce 1993 musel přidat vysvětlení, že země odkud já i loutky pocházíme, už neexistuje. Golema jsme zase udělali jako taneční představení, současný tanec. Mísíme často pohybové divadlo, marionety, nalezené předměty, stínové loutky, a vždycky se snažíme, abychom měli živou hudbu. Jako ukázku češtiny, a aby věděli jak správně vyslovit mé jméno s tím unikátním českým „ř“, učím diváky opakovat „třista třiatřicet stříbrných křepelek...“.  Většinou se smějí, ale jednou nějaké dítě vykřiklo „Ty jsi se zbláznil...“. 

Jak už jsem zmínil dříve, ještě v Čechách jsem vyprávěl pohádky pro (mladé) dospělé, s jazzovou nebo i rockovou hudbou. To bývaly méně známé texty. Také má vlastní podvratná pohádka o „dobrém dědečkovi,“ který nejmladšímu laskavému - tedy hloupému - bratrovi nakonec za odměnu utrhne hlavu, patří do tohoto soudku. Ale v Americe, kde neznají žádné z těch pohádek, s nimiž jsme jako děti vyrůstali, jsem se musel vrátit k Němcové a k Erbenovi. A je to krása, jak taková „Sůl nad zlato“ unese diváky všech věků.

 

Pro koho v New Yorku hrajete, kdo jsou vaši diváci?

Máme publikum, které si nás oblíbilo a vrací se, anebo najednou přijdou úplně noví diváci, jako teď na posledního Fausta, který byl vyprodaný v NYC i v Bostonu. Hrajeme pro všeobecné americké publikum, většinou pro dospělé. Pomohli jsme změnit představu, že loutkové divadlo je jen pro malé děti. Jindy zas rodiče přivedou tříleté špunty i na Hamleta. Lidé českého a slovenského původu tvoří jen malou část diváků. Přijdou ale Rusové, Židé, Poláci, Indové, Japonci, Číňani, národnosti, které mají loutkovou tradici. 

 

Jak děláte propagaci?

Pohlednice, letáky, plakáty, sociální sítě, najímáme tiskového agenta, který rozesílá oznámení do médií. Někdy se mu podaří dostat hodně článků a kritik, někdy ne, nedá se to vysvětlit. Ale jak říká, jediné noviny, které se opravdu počítají a přitáhnou diváky, jsou New York Times. A dobrá pověst od úst k ústům.

 

S jakými loutkami hrajete?

Kromě těch historických si loutky necháváme vyřezat v Čechách. Nejdřív jsme hlavně dělali kopie starých loutek z kostela Jana Husa, těch nejkřehčích. Od pana Václava Krčála a pak „trikového“ dupáka od Ivana Antoše. Stavěli jsme je vždy též o něco větší, neb hrajeme někdy pro veliké publikum − teda hlavně moje sólové představení pohádek, které jsem hrál s šedesáticentimentrovými marionetami až pro 900 dětí v tělocvičně ve Phoenixu (naprostý zločin). Tak to dělávali staří loutkáři, když si navzájem stále většími loutkami konkurovali. Některé mnou nalezené loutky byly kdysi vyrobené v Čechách, různými řezbáři u firem Muenzeberg nebo Modrý a Žanda. Ty nejstarší zhotovil zřejmě Mikuláš Sychrovský z Mirotic, jihočeský řezbář, který vyrobil mnoho loutek pro několik generací Kopeckých i jiných slavných rodin. Jeden druh mezi nimi měl ovšem výrazný naivní styl s plochými tvářemi, což je neobvyklé, a usuzuji z toho, že je dělal nějaký amatér v Americe. Profesionál vyřeže výrazné a plastické rysy − někdy ty velké nosy působí až antisemitsky (a někdy skutečně rasistické byly).

Dále používáme dvaceticentimetrové rodinné loutky od Miloše Kasala z Ruzyně, takové, s jakými si hrála v dětství moje maminka a které jsem po ní zdědil já se svými sourozenci (tyto loutky taky po představení prodáváme, což je důležitý zdroj příjmů souboru). Ty prťavé hračky někdy vystupují zároveň s většími loutkami − stejná postava je hrána paralelně loutkami dvou velikostí i živáčkem. 

První kompletní soubor na nové představení nám udělal Kuba Krejčí na Jenovéfu. Jeho loutky si pak zahrály v mnoha kusech, a dokonce zatančily ve sboru v Golemovi. Hlavní postavy udělal Kuba 120 cm velké a tančily většinou na kolečkách, „uvězněné“ seděly do půl těla v takové kleci, která představovala vězení pražského ghetta, stejně jako výprava scénografa Roman Hladíka: stylizované pětimetrové věže pražských kostelů točící se kolem mnohem menší Staronové synagogy. Loutky z Jenovéfy pak byly i v Hamletovi − zloduch Golo si zahrál Hamleta, zatímco kuchař Drago dostal životní příležitost ztvárnit krále Klaudia.    

 

Kde všude jste v New Yorku hrál?

Začali jsme první verzí Fausta v roce 1990 v kostele Jana Husa na 74. ulici, když tam, na Upper East Side, ještě byly nějaké zbytky české komunity. Pak jsme hráli v Národní budově, která už byla zdevastovaná a téměř nepoužívaná, a kromě nějakých krajanských schůzí jednou za měsíc zela prázdnotou. Pro nás to byl výborný prostor, dělali jsme představení, která začala v přízemí − bývaly tam tři scény slavného divadla Manhattan Theatre Club, kde hrál, vedle množství hvězd nebo budoucích hvězd, jako třeba Liza Minelli, taky Voskovec. Uprostřed scény pak loutky proskočily klasickým marionetovým proscéniem a vydaly se, následovány diváky, po budově. Poslední dějství se odehrálo v katastrofálních ruinách tanečního sálu, kde nad hromadami opadané omítky kolem polorozpadlého nápisu „Národ sobě“ létali holubi. 

S Golemem s klezmerovou hudbou Franka Londona jsme se v roce 1997 poprvé dostali do slavného divadla La MaMa na Východní 4. ulici, založeného legendární Ellen Stewart, úžasnou černoškou, která byla skutečná MáMa pro nás, i mnoho později slavných autorů, režisérů a herců. Byla to někdy máma princmetálová. Teď už jsme v La MaMě jedním z domácích, nebo snad „rodinných“ souborů. Kromě toho hrajeme v Theater for the New City na První Avenue a 10. ulici, taky v „East Village“ („Východní vesnice“ je takové nóbl jméno, které dali realitní agenti tomu bývalému vypálenému slumu a podařilo se jim z něj udělat módní záležitost). 

 

V New Yorku existuje údajně jediné loutkové divadlo provozované městem, což je pro kapitalistickou Ameriku velice nezvyklé…

Swedish Cottage v Centrálním parku je marionetové divadlo, většinou pro děti, provozované městem a nadací pro zvelebování parků. Moc hezké divadlo, původně tedy švédská chalupa přivezená na světovou výstavu v roce 1947. Loutkoherci mají pracovní zařazení „Park Ranger“. Bohužel používají nahrané dialogy, někdy pořízené před dvaceti, třiceti i více lety, a loutkáři jen tahají za provázky marionet vyrobených pro stejně staré inscenace. Párkrát jsem tam zaskakoval na jednu zkoušku, nebo mi slíbili zkoušku, ale nezbyl čas. Jen jsem si předem poslechl tu nahrávku. Hercův zlý sen: na jevišti bez znalosti textu, narážek, a bez zkoušek.

 

Jaký zvuk má podle vás české loutkářství ve světě?

Mezi loutkáři a znalci má české loutkářství obrovský zvuk. I lidi, kteří nikdy české loutky nepoznali, často vědí, že je v Čechách silná tradice loutkového divadla i animace. Případně byli v Čechách a viděli loutky prodávané v obchodech pro turisty na každém rohu, nebo zhlédli jednu z komerčních produkcí, která se v Praze hraje už třicet let. 

 

Na čem právě pracujete?

Obnovujeme v novém obsazení a samozřejmě trochu aktualizované podobě "A Christmas Carol, Oy! Hanukkah, Merry Kwanzaa". Dickensova „Vánoční koleda“ se z nějakého důvodu stala nerozlučnou součástí Vánoc v Americe, existuje spousta divadelních i filmových adaptací. My jsme tam přidali tu Chanukku a svátek Kwanzaa, což je (v roce 1966) uměle vyrobená protiváha Vánoc využívající afrických tradic, a zpíváme k tomu české, anglické, hebrejské a svahilské písně. Možná ještě tento rok přidáme španělskou a slovenskou - do souboru čerstvě nastupuje výborná slovenská herečka Katarina Vizina. Kromě ní bude v novém obsazení hrát a česky zpívat také Valois Mickens (ta je hrdá na své africké, keltské a indiánské geny), jedna z dlouholetých členek domácího souboru La MaMa, která už vystoupila v několika našich inscenacích. Nějaký kritik o našem představení napsal: „Je to stále ten původní Dickens, ale jako by příběh převyprávěla česká babička.“

Odehraje se to v Theater for the New City, a také na zájezdě do slavného muzea Detroit Institute of Arts.  V dubnu 2020 jedou české pohádky do Trinidadu − ale ne do teplíčka na pláž – do Trinidadu v Coloradu, městečku na hranicích Nového Mexika. A asi z toho udělám měsíční zájezd nahoru podél Skalistých hor, taková trochu nostalgická vzpomínka na tři a půl měsíce na cestách od Idaha po Arizonu. Tenkrát před třiceti lety jsem odřídil přes 15 tisíc mil a odehrál 151 představení, tj. třináct a půl každý týden. To už si odpustím, bude to tak tucet představení, ale možná zajedu až do Alberty v Kanadě.

Poslední dva roky už pomaloučku polehoučku připravujeme pro naši domácí scénu v divadle La MaMa „Ptáky“ podle Aristofana a Farida ud-Din Attar. Výprava Petr Sís, který podle té perské epické básně z dvanáctého století vytvořil překrásnou knihu. Hudba Michael Kocáb, který skládal, hrál a zpíval ještě jako konzervatorista pro mou první inscenaci v Rubínu v Praze. Bylo to také první veřejné vystoupení Pražského výběru, ještě jazzového, doprovázeli půlhodinovou báseň v próze Apollinairova současníka Blaisa Cendrarse. Tak se tím vlastně uzavře kruh.

Díváme se na videozáznamy statisícových hejn ptáků, kteří jako by tančili po nebi, a snažíme se vymyslet, jak to vytvořit na jevišti, ne promítáním, ale divadelní magií.

Tear Gas Fired as Protesters Return to Streets: Hong Kong Update

 Cache   

Tear Gas Fired as Protesters Return to Streets: Hong Kong Update(Bloomberg) -- Police fired tear gas as thousands of black-clad protesters marched in Hong Kong’s tourist district Tsim Sha Tsui on Sunday, as tensions re-emerged after the euphoria of pro-democracy victories at district elections last weekend.Protesters also marched to the U.S. consulate in a rally to express gratitude after President Donald Trump signed legislation last week expressing support for the demonstrators. Late Saturday, a group of protesters blocked roads and set fire to a subway station entrance.Here’s the latest (all times local):MTR to add train captains (5:30 a.m.)The city’s subway operator says some sections of its network will need more train captains to ensure there aren’t objects hindering the operation of trains. Some traffic lights were damaged that may affect its Light Rail services.Police in riot gear line streets (2 a.m.)Police in riot gear were still seen lining some streets even as the crowd dispersed.Police disperse crowds in Whampoa (11 p.m.)Police also fired tear gas in nearby Whampoa, where bricks were hurled at them. A passer-by was attacked, roads were blocked and stores were vandalized in the area.Tear gas fired in Tsim Sha Tsui (5:45 p.m.)Police fired tear gas and used pepper spray as thousands of protesters marched in Hong Kong’s busy tourist district of Tsim Sha Tsui. The police said in a statement that tear gas was fired in response to protesters throwing bricks at officers.March to U.S. consulate (Sunday, 1:30 p.m.)Thousands of protesters carrying U.S. flags and banners marched peacefully to the consulate. In a separate rally Sunday, demonstrators headed to Polytechnic University and the Cross-Harbour Tunnel.China accuses UN Human Rights Head of meddling (late Saturday)China said it “strongly” opposed an op-ed by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, accusing her of meddling in the country’s affairs and emboldening Hong Kong protesters to commit violence.Bachelet urged the Hong Kong government to conduct a “proper independent and impartial judge-led investigation” into reports of excessive use of force by police, according to an opinion piece in the South China Morning Post on Saturday. She also urged Carrie Lam’s government to “prioritize a long-overdue process” of meaningful and inclusive dialogue with the people of Hong Kong.China said Bachelet and her office should “stop making irresponsible comments, and refrain from interfering by any means in the internal affairs” of Hong Kong.“The Central Government will continue to firmly support the Chief Executive in governing the Hong Kong SAR in accordance with law, support the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing law, and support the Hong Kong judicial organs in bringing violent criminals to justice according to law,” China’s UN mission in Geneva said in the statement.Tensions rise again (11 p.m.)About 200 protesters blocked roads, closed an exit at the Prince Edward MTR station and set fire to an entrance of Mong Kok MTR station late Saturday, the South China Morning Post reported. Police fired at least one round of tear gas, it said.Foreign nationals arrested in China (6 p.m.)China arrested two overseas nationals for their alleged involvement in the Hong Kong protest movement, state newspaper Southern Daily reported, citing information from the national security agency. Taiwan citizen Lee Meng-chu and Lee Henley Hu Xiang of Belize were arrested by the national security authorities in the southern Guangdong province, the local paper said.The Taiwanese was suspected of spying and leaking Chinese state secrets, while the other person was accused of funding criminal activities that endanger national security, the paper said. Prosecutors have approved the arrests in both cases and are going through legal procedures, it said.Protesters return (Saturday, 2 p.m.)Hundreds of secondary-school students and elderly people rallied in a park in the city center in support of Hong Kong’s ongoing protests and against police use of tear gas. A number of people addressed the crowd before a band played on a makeshift stage in front of background poster that said: The elderly and the young hold hands and we walk together with you.1,377 arrested in relation to PolyU (4:54 p.m.)Hong Kong police have arrested 1,377 people who left the then-besieged PolyU campus or were in the vicinity, the force’s Chief Superintendent Kwok Ka-chuen said at a daily briefing. More than 300 people under age 18 had their information taken down when they left the campus, he said, adding that he was “pleased” the episode at the school was coming to an end and that he hoped it could be a “turning point” for the city’s unrest, as it was resolved peacefullyPolice have now made 5,890 protest-related arrests since rallies began on June 9, he said.Hong Kong insurance sales to China slip (3:32 p.m.)Insurance sales in the financial hub to mainland customers declined in the third quarter as the protests halted visits to the city. Their purchases of insurance and related investment policies declined 18% to HK$9.7 billion ($1.2 billion) from a year earlier, according to figures from Hong Kong’s Insurance Authority. That year-on-year drop was the biggest since the start of last year, weighing on insurance giants such as Prudential Plc and AIA Group Ltd.Hong Kong is a hot market to buy insurance for mainland customers since it offers a wider array of investment products and access to foreign currencies. Since rules stipulate that customers need to finalize contracts in person, sales have been pummeled as many prospective Chinese customers have avoided the former British colony.PolyU siege ends (Friday 12:51 p.m.)Police said they lifted their blockade on PolyU after officers cleared the campus. Chow Yat-ming, the city’s assistant police commissioner, said he believed PolyU could be handed back to university management after dangerous items that remained on campus were removed.Firemen and a police safety team did a final sweep of the campus in the morning after searching every level of each building to handle hazardous items and collect evidence the day before. The police said they seized items including 3,989 petrol bombs, 1,339 explosive items and 601 bottles of corrosive liquids.\--With assistance from Zheping Huang and Aaron Mc Nicholas.To contact the reporters on this story: Karen Leigh in Hong Kong at kleigh4@bloomberg.net;Natalie Lung in Hong Kong at flung6@bloomberg.net;Manuel Baigorri in Hong Kong at mbaigorri@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shamim Adam at sadam2@bloomberg.net, Tony CzuczkaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

beamo Laser Cutter / Engraver Review

 Cache   

I dabble in pretty much every bit of tech out there, but there are two bits of tech that really interest me and I’ve never yet got involved with. The first is 3D printing (I still haven’t gone there, but I feel the time is coming) and the second is laser engraving and cutting. I’m not sure what the fascination is with the latter for me (maybe it’s the ‘freaking laser!’ factor), I’m not particularly craft or artistic, but I’ve always just thought the ability to engrave artwork onto stuff is fascinating.

With this in mind, when I was asked if I wanted to review the Flux beamo, a new Kickstarter project looking to democratise laser engraving and cutting, I just couldn’t say no!

Flux? Who?

It’s probably worth starting with a few words on Flux themselves. Of course, when backing a Kickstarter project, the first concern is often ‘am I going to see the product I’m backing’? Thankfully, Flux has a solid pedigree in this regard so for once this is a Kickstarter you can enter with confidence. Taiwan based Flux was founded in 2014 with the goal of making 3D printing accessible to all. $1.6m of Kickstarter funding later saw the release of the critically acclaimed Flux Delta, a modular 3D printer that combined laser engraving and drawing.

So what is the beamo?

The beamo laser cutter and engraver packs a powerful 30W CO2 laser into an impressively small footprint that’s barely bigger than 4 sheets of A4 paper. It weighs in at 22Kg and it’ll fit in nicely with the most compact of homes or offices, not least because of its smart industrial design. Utilising the classic Flux approach, the design blends cutting-edge technology (pun intended) with impressive approachability, quality and functionality. While it might look like a well thought out consumer product, Beamo actually includes features only normally found in industrial-grade laser cutters including closed-loop, maintenance free water-cooling, a 1,000 DPI laser that is smaller than the width of a human hair with 0.05mm layer depth, an optional rotary add-on for engraving curved objects and even an optional diode laser and CO2 laser for improved cutting speed and efficiency.

But what’s it like?

By far the best way for me to review the beamo is to talk about my experience as a complete engraving / cutting / 3D printing novice. Honestly, it couldn’t have been any more straightforward.

The machine comes well packed in a huge box with everything you need to get started included. Take the beamo out of the box, plug in the Wi-Fi adaptor if required, affix the extraction hose to the back with a jubilee clip (it’s just like a tumble dryer hose), plug it into the mains and turn it on. It really is as simple as that to set up.

At this point the huge display on the right of the device (which looks to be Raspberry Pi powered by the way!) springs into life and you’ll quickly arrive at a straightforward touchscreen UI for controlling the machine. From here you can configure Wi-Fi details or view the Ethernet connection details, which will provide you with an IP address you’ll use to connect from your PC.

beamo-working.png

On your PC or Mac you’ll need to download the Beam Studio application which connects to the beamo using the IP address displayed on your machine. A standard sample print is included (together with a small piece of wood in the box, a lovely touch!) to let you quickly and easily see the machine in action. It’s rather impressive!

The sample project loads up and has a beamo logo set to engrave and a circle around it set to cut. When kicking it off for the first time and seeing the engraving in action, it’s incredibly cool and exciting, but when it cuts – wow, that’s when it really gets taken to the next level. This thing is AWESOME!

beamo-bitmoji.png

After trying the demo project, setting up your own is incredibly easy. The Beam Studio app can import all types of files (including bitmaps, not just vectors), it can convert to monochrome or grayscale and it includes a wide range of presets for different types of materials. After starting the job, the display on the machine itself helps you keep track of progress and there’s a handy ‘abort’ option on the touchscreen display should things go awry. The beamo can engrave and cut cardboard, wood, bamboo, leather and acrylic and engrave fabric, rubber, cement (!), glass, stone, anode metal or stainless steel (with the diode laser). I’ve been a bit of a maniac and shoved all sorts of things in the machine from phone cases to Moleskine diaries to wallets and its handled everything with aplomb. It’s so easy to use and fun, you won’t be able to help yourself. 

beamo-moleskine.png

By far my favourite beamo feature is its built in camera. This allows you to take a picture of the bed with your material in place to allow you to perfectly align your image and ensure that things get engraved or cut in the correctly place. The only other action that needs to be completed before kicking off the job is focusing the laser, which is as simple as raising / lowering the laser unit against an acrylic guide (an autofocus mod is available for an additional cost).

The reviewers guide for beamo suggested keeping a fire extinguisher nearby was a good idea, which makes sense, but on the whole beamo is designed to be as safe as possible. All fumes are vented out the back by a powerful fan and the machine pauses immediately if the lid is opened. 

beamo-phonecase.png

Should I buy a beamo?

The $849 cost of entry for beamo is no small chunk of change, but my word, what a machine you get for your money. You’ll quickly find yourself inundated with requests from friends to engrave things and you’ll find yourself looking at everything in a new way with a ‘does it engrave’ thought in your mind.

Flux have done an astonishingly good job of making laser tooling available to everyone and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend adding the beamo to your arsenal.

Head on across to Kickstarter to back the campaign!

Xi Jinping gập đầu giữa muôn trùng rắc rối

 Cache   
BM
Chưa bao giờ Tập Cận Bình ngập đầu giữa muôn trùng rắc rối bằng lúc này, từ vụ biểu tình Hong Kong đến “vụ án Huawei” rồi mới đây là vụ một điệp viên Trung cộng đào thoát sang Úc khai nhiều tình tiết kinh thiên động địa và hôm nay thì sự kiện Tòa Bạch Ốc ký Đạo luật Dân chủ và Nhân quyền Hong Kong. 

Chưa hết, một mặt trận ít được chú ý nhưng rất quan trọng và ảnh hưởng dữ dội đến vai trò Trung cộng tại Đông Nam Á. Đó là Đài Loan. Cần nhắc lại, trong báo cáo “Indo-Pacific Strategy Report - Preparedness, Partnerships, and Promoting a Networked Region” mà Bộ Quốc phòng Hoa Kỳ công bố ngày 1-6-2019, Mỹ đã làm Bắc Kinh điên tiết khi lần đầu tiên gọi Đài Loan là “quốc gia”, thay vì công nhận lãnh thổ này là một tỉnh của Trung cộng, như chính sách mà Bắc Kinh luôn yêu cầu thế giới “cấm được cãi”. Báo cáo trên có đoạn: “Vì các nền dân chủ Ấn-Thái Bình Dương như Singapore, Đài Loan, New Zealand và Mông Cổ là đáng tin, có năng lực cũng như là đối tác tự nhiên của Hoa Kỳ nên cả bốn quốc gia này đều đóng góp cho các sứ mạng của Mỹ khắp thế giới. Họ cũng đang thực hiện những bước tích cực trong việc duy trì một trật tự quốc tế mở và tự do”. 

BM
  
Đây là điều chưa từng có tiền lệ. Trước đó, cũng có một vụ “kỳ cục” chưa tiền lệ nữa, khi John Bolton, với tư cách cố vấn an ninh quốc gia, đã gặp một trong những viên chức quốc phòng cao cấp nhất của Đài Loan – Tổng thư ký Hội đồng an ninh quốc gia Đài Loan Lý Đại Duy (David Lee) – vào đầu tháng 5 tại Washington. Đây là cuộc gặp đầu tiên của giới chức an ninh hàng đầu Mỹ-Đài Loan kể từ năm 1979. 

BM
  
Nói đến chính sách ngoại giao Hoa Kỳ, vấn đề đạo luật, đặc biệt những đạo luật được Quốc hội đề xuất và chuẩn y, là rất quan trọng vì chúng không mang tính nhất thời mà có sức ảnh hưởng về chiến lược lâu dài. Cần nhắc lại, tháng 3-2018, Đạo luật du lịch Đài Loan (Taiwan Travel Act – TTA) với nội dung khuyến khích các cuộc gặp cấp cao giữa Mỹ và Đài Loan đã được phê chuẩn từ Tòa Bạch Ốc. Trước đó, ngoại giao Washington-Đài Bắc bị chi phối bởi Đạo luật quan hệ Đài Loan (Taiwan Relations Act-TRA), vốn chỉ cho phép giới chức cấp thấp của Đài Loan gặp Mỹ. Gần một năm sau, tháng 5-2019, Hạ viện Hoa Kỳ lại chuẩn y Đạo luật bảo trợ Đài Loan (Taiwan Assurance Act-TAA), bày tỏ ủng hộ Đài Loan trước sức ép ngoại giao lẫn quân sự từ Bắc Kinh. Khuyến khích Đài Loan mua thêm “đồ chơi” quốc phòng cũng như tham gia các tổ chức quốc tế, TAA được Hạ viện thông qua với tỷ lệ 414/0! 

BM
  
Tiếp đó, Ủy ban đối ngoại Thượng viện Hoa Kỳ cũng nhất trí thông qua (ngày 22-5-2019) dự luật ủng hộ Đài Loan “tái chiếm” vị trí quan sát viên trong Hội đồng Y tế Thế giới (cơ quan có quyền đề ra các quyết định của Tổ chức Y tế Thế giới-WHO), nơi đã không mời Đài Loan dự họp kể từ năm 2017 bởi sự cản trở từ Bắc Kinh. Một trong những “minh họa” rõ rệt nhất cho loạt diễn biến nóng hổi trong quan hệ Washington-Đài Bắc là một cơ quan ngoại giao của Đài Loan đặt tại Washington đã được đổi tên, từ “Hội đồng điều phối Bắc Mỹ” thành “Hội đồng Hoa Kỳ vụ của Đài Loan” (“Trú Mỹ quốc Đài Bắc kinh tế văn hóa đại biểu xứ”) vào cuối tháng 5-2019. Còn nữa, giữa tháng 6-2019, một thông điệp khác lại được Washington đưa ra mà giới nghiên cứu chính trị Đài Loan đã diễn giải theo chiều hướng tích cực cho họ. Đó là sự kiện tướng hưu Không quân Hoa Kỳ David Stilwell, người thông thạo tiếng Hoa và tiếng Triều Tiên, được Thượng viện chuẩn y vị trí trợ lý Ngoại trưởng đặc trách Đông Á-Thái Bình Dương. 

BM
  
Cùng với các đạo luật liên quan Đài Loan và bây giờ là Hong Kong, câu chuyện “đạo luật” từ nước Mỹ liên quan chính sách đối ngoại của họ cho thấy một điều: sức mạnh Quốc hội Hoa Kỳ. Họ không chỉ ảnh hưởng nguyên thủ của mình mà còn có thể làm nguyên thủ gần như bất kỳ quốc gia nào cũng phải ngán sợ. Tập Cận Bình có thể hô phong hoán vũ trong nước và Tập có thể so găng tay đôi với một nguyên thủ quốc gia khác nhưng Tập sẽ bất lực trong việc đối diện với một tập thể gọi là “Quốc hội Hoa Kỳ”.

DC Comics pacify angry Chinese after image of Batwoman mirrors Hong Kong protesters

 Cache   

American comic book publisher DC Comics has removed an image that was part of its promotion of Frank Miller and Rafael Grampá’s upcoming Batman title Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child after an angry backlash in China.

The image showed Batwoman throwing a molotov cocktail against a backdrop of pink lettering reading: “The future is young”.

After it was shared on DC’s social media, the image was slammed by Chinese Internet users, who claimed the image is a gesture of support for the protests in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has been rocked over the last couple of months by citizens protesting over a controversial extradition bill and expressing their unhappiness with how China is governing the island.

The bill, if enacted, would allow local authorities to detain and extradite people who are wanted in territories that Hong Kong does not have extradition agreements with, including mainland China and Taiwan.

The protests have turned violent in nature. The country's chief executive Carrie Lam has fully withdrawn the bill, but that has not stopped police and protesters from engaging in street battles almost every week as protesters want their four other demands, including independence, be met.

Upset Chinese Internet users point to the flaming bottle as mirroring the tactics used by predominantly young protesters in Hong Kong, Batman’s black outfit to the black clothes of the demonstrators, and the titular golden child to the colour yellow, which pro-democracy activists adopted for protests held in Hong Kong five years ago.

“The black clothes represent Hong Kong, the mask represents Hong Kong, the Molotov cocktail represents Hong Kong, what else here doesn’t represent Hong Kong???” wrote one reader on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Another Weibo user wrote: “Is Hong Kong really becoming Gotham City? But Hong Kong rioters are not Batman. Instead, they are the criminals of Gotham City.”

Panasonic to Sell Semiconductor Business to Nuvoton

 Cache   

Panasonic has announced plans to almost completely withdraw from semiconductor business and sell all of its related assets to Taiwan-based Nuvoton Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of Winbond Electronics. Under the terms of the deal, Nuvoton will get Panasonic’s semiconductor manufacturing assets, chip & product development units, contracts, and sales assets for about $250 million. Following the transaction, the only semiconductor-related property that Panasonic will have will be its 20% stake in Socionext.

Panasonic started its semiconductor business back in 1957 and was once a leading designer and maker of chips. As competition in the industry intensified early this decade, the company adopted an asset light strategy and started to gradually withdraw from both the development and manufacturing of semiconductors. In 2014, it sold a 51% stake in its chip manufacturing assets (consisting of one 300-mm and two 200-mm fabs) to TowerJazz, then Panasonic sold off its assembly/test facilities to UTAC. Finally, the company outsourced production of advanced SoCs to Intel Custom Foundry, which symbolized their withdrawal from development of leading-edge process technologies.

It did not take long for the company to realize that the design of complex SoCs was getting too expensive, which is why in March of 2015 it transferred its SoC development assets to Socionext, a joint venture between the Development Bank of Japan, Fujitsu, and Panasonic. Recently, Panasonic sold its diode and transistor business to Rohm Semiconductor. All told, Panasonic's chip business has been on a downward spiral for quite a while now.

By contrast, Nuvoton, which was established in 2008 by Winbond to produce microcontrollers, power management ICs, and other similar devices, has been quite a success. It has numerous clients and it looks like its 200-mm fab is not enough for the company. Under the terms of the agreement with Panasonic and TowerJazz, through acquisition of Panasonic Semiconductor Solutions Co. (PSCS) it will get all three Japanese fabs which originally belonged to Panasonic. Meanwhile, the sum that Nuvoton will pay to TowerJass is unknown.

Furthermore, Nuvoton will get Panasonic’s business and R&D operations related to power-management ICs, sensors (for smartphones, vehicles, and various types of cameras) and other types of products by taking over Panasonic Industrial Devices Systems & Technology (PIDST), Panasonic Industrial Devices Engineering (PIDE), and Panasonic Semiconductor Suzhou (PSCSZ) companies.

As a result of the business transaction, Nuvoton will own four semiconductor manufacturing facilities: one 300-mm fab and three 200-mm fabs. Moreover, it will get a rich portfolio of products, customers, and contracts. However it will also be inheriting the debts of the aforementioned companies. Ultimately this will allow Panasonic to exit the semiconductor business, improving its own financial position.

[ Recent Exhibitions ]Digitized Traditional Artistry

 Cache   
  With rapid development of technology, digital culture has become an inevitable element in social, cultural, artistic, and economic dimensions. The application of “digitization” transforms the existed achievement of traditional arts through various digital technologies for the purposes of archiving or exhibiting. In recent years, art galleries, museums, and private institutions around the world have all strived for digital archiving, exhibition and promotion; regardless of formats, the interdisciplinary integration of traditional arts and contemporary digital technologies has made media technology a unique creative medium, which utilizes the interactive and participatory nature of digitalization for production, exhibition, archiving, and display. From the perspectives of technology, aesthetics, and related concepts, digital media technologies have become kinds of “visual interpretive programs.” As for how to represent the images of traditional cultural arts? In what formats? How do the chosen formats of representation connect with exhibition designs of museums? What hidden meanings are added to important information and images? When creators integrate technological images into existing formats of works, how do they give traditional cultural products deeper meanings, so that the cultural products and other elements of exhibitions fuse to create perfect proportions? These are all important topics in contemporary digital translation.
 
The combination of contemporary arts and culture and the development of digital technology brings transcending changes to the originally one-on-one relationship of artistic creation between “the creator and created.” “Re-creation” is the reinterpretation of existing works of art; in addition to manifesting the transformation of traditional cultural arts into contemporary cultural spirit, re-creation is really the self-actualizing process from perception, interpretation, to creation of art. In Taiwan, in terms of technological translation, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) has allocated significant R&D budget to focus on the execution of digital humanities projects, and achieved great results. Furthermore, in the area of cultural conservation, the MOST has also invested substantial resources to promote the conservation of works of traditional art, and strives to consolidate two major domains of culture and technology to build the foundation of social education and promotion. Thus, traditional artworks are converted through digital technology for display, archiving, and value-added utilization, bringing closer learners (viewers) and artworks in the age of technology, enhancing co-participation and social interaction, and conducting participatory “content delivery” through the expansion of interactive information. Domestic and overseas digital archiving and display, as well as means of presentation where digital technologies are applied on archived works, can be categorized into eight major types: archived works as techno-arts, online display of archived works, interactive display, augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, 3D scanning combined with 3D printing, and immersive projection. Applying different display technologies on different cultural artifacts signify the unique characteristics of diverse display technologies and applications. In light of the rapid development of digital technologies, the MOST has supported domestic innovative R&D and research projects of digital technology through research programs and digital humanities programs over the years, hoping to demonstrate the expressiveness of converting traditional culture and folk arts through contemporary technologies, and to explore the textual meaning and temporal significance of these creative practices of techno-arts through related studies.
 
Therefore, the focus of this curatorial project is on the interwoven dimensions of “research projects of the MOST” and “achievements of display technologies and applications,” in order to depict “the co-constructed and fused picture through intervention of contemporary digital technologies in traditional folk arts” under the theme of “Digitized Traditional Artistry.” In other words, this exhibition targets relative research projects funded by the MOST to focus on research outcomes and related discussions, and sets representation of “traditional folk arts” through different digital technologies as the motif to re-examine how artists in recent years have enhanced Taiwan’s contemporary digital humanities and pluralistic looks of techno-culture through research and practical-based projects.

記者張林沐/新竹報導

中國醫藥大學新竹附設醫院將在12/12(四)舉辦院慶,院長陳自諒表示「預防勝於治療」,早一點檢測早一點發現早一點治療,當天有健康園遊會活動,擺設10個身體檢測攤位,分別是血糖站、肌握力檢測、骨質密度檢測、自律神經檢測、骨齡宣導、眼科葉黃素色素密度儀檢測(MPS II)、中醫養生茶試飲、銀耳試飲、細胞儲存介紹、皮膚測試。

眼科主任陳瑩山、家醫科主任胡松林、中醫師鄒曉玲和周書玉、身心科醫師周伯翰以及心臟內科醫師楊晨佳為健康園遊會宣傳,提醒鄉親透過檢測守護健康,民眾不只當場可得知健康報告,只要集滿6站闖關小章,即可獲得院慶紀念小禮物,數量有限。另外,配合院慶,院方也舉行四場醫師衛教講座。

眼科主任陳瑩山指出,健康園遊會特別推出MPS II 黃斑部色素細胞分析檢測儀,主要是3C時代來臨,面板及手機的藍光對於黃斑部,往往會形成黃斑部過度的氧化壓力,造成黃斑部病變的風險,所以在3C時代,黃斑部葉黃素色素細胞的檢測非常重要,由於現代人飲食不均衡,高度近視人口也高,MPS II 黃斑部色素細胞分析檢測儀提供快速、簡單、可靠的黃斑色素(MP)篩查。

同時,健康園遊會也推出「X光骨頭攝影AI輔助判讀與身高預測系統」宣導攤位,利用深度神經網絡和自動化影像處理輔助醫師作骨齡判定,並透過比對生理年齡預測最終身高,如同擁有一位資深可靠的兒童遺傳學專家協助判讀。

身心科周伯翰醫師指出,現代棘手的文明病,伴隨著身體和心理不適感等症狀,諸如不安、焦慮、憂鬱、煩悶、易怒、食慾不振、注意力不集中、記憶力減退皆有。而自律神經檢測儀提供篩檢的管道,正視惱人的身心症狀。

家醫科主任胡松林表示,提到糖尿病就會聯想到多吃、多喝、多尿……這是一項慢性代謝性疾病,很多人感受不到明顯的症狀但引發的併發症往往相當複雜。多運動、不菸不酒、清淡均衡飲食,血糖才可以獲得有效控制,所以當天可檢測隨機血糖,瞭解身體狀況。而肌少症是肌肉質量流失造成肌力或肌耐力下降,從30歲開始肌肉平均質量每十年減少 3 -8% ,70歲以後流失速度更快,每十年減少 10-15%,當天也可測肌握力和骨質密度。

中醫科鄒曉玲醫師特別推薦生津止渴、保護喉嚨的「天水茶」,氣血雙調、陰陽併補的「活力元氣湯」、安神助眠的「舒壓安神茶」試飲。其他還包含銀耳試飲、皮膚測試等。健康園遊會在12月12日當天上午九點到下午三點,歡迎鄉親把握機會來檢測,為您的健康把關。

活動名稱:再生能源五大關鍵 工研院打造台灣永續新未來
活動地點:新竹
日  期:2019-12-02~2020-12-31

記者鄧宜、林進賢/新竹報導

再生能源占比中,太陽能為台灣最大的綠電來源,為促進國內太陽能產業發展,工研院發展出多項對環境友善的循環科技,從太陽能板的回收、增加老舊電池的可利用率等課題,展現工研院從太陽能回收、設計、測試、發電,以及儲能系統等五項關鍵技術的全方位解決方案,以循環科技、國際驗證的實力,希望幫助太陽能產業再升級,打造台灣永續新未來。

工研院表示,台灣能源有 98% 需靠進口,發展再生能源是必經之路。近年來,在全球氣候暖化衝擊下,各國也紛紛降低對石化燃料依賴度、積極發展再生能源;國際大廠等也開始要求下游的供應鏈廠商使用綠電,如此一來,也直接影響台灣廠商出口之國際競爭力。

面對此一不可忽略的情勢與國際趨勢,台灣訂出2025年再生能源占比20%的目標,為了讓再生能源併網後能夠維持電力系統的穩定發展,需透過智慧電網、儲能系統、需量反應等機制來共同努力。

工研院院長劉文雄表示,台灣在發展再生能源要具備五大關鍵,第一,掌握國際趨勢。發展再生能源已是國際趨勢,歐美日等各國也將再生能源當成未來重要施政目標,透過獎勵與強制性規範雙管齊下,扶植再生能源產業競爭力。台灣許多大企業也積極採購綠電或是自行建置再生能源電廠,顯示再生能源不再是選擇題,台灣應急起直追,不能置身事外。第二,發展再生能源不能靠單打獨鬥、首重凝聚共識。必須人民、政府、產業三個角色相互合作,缺一不可。政府打造良好產業的投資環境、法規、政策;產業配合政策發展完整綠能生態鏈;人民了解綠能重要性,給予最大的支持與後盾,有了共同目標理念,這樣才能讓台灣再生能源蓬勃成長茁壯。第三,仰賴延續性的再生能源政策。因為打造綠色家園並非一蹴可幾,再生能源政策推動上必須將眼光放長放遠,做好短、中、長期藍圖,才能讓台灣走在對的道路上。第四、勇於克服再生能源供電間歇性的技術挑戰。台灣可透過強韌的電網系統、快速反應的電力機組與儲能技術等方法來因應,積極找出解方。第五、攜手產學研建立完整綠色能源生態鏈。這個生態鏈涵蓋學術研究、產業應用、技術研發等,特別是技術研發需跟產業結合一起投入,才能茁壯再生能源競爭力,進而促進經濟成長。

根據工研院 IEK Consulting 估計,全球太陽能市場規模將從今年的1179億美元,到2021年將成長至1368億美元,成長幅度逾16%,根據行政院主計總處統計,太陽光電去年底總裝置容量已超越水力發電,躍居再生能源之首,至今年4月底為止達 312 萬瓩,年增 53.7%,占整體再生能源總裝置容量比重高達47%,成為台灣再生能源發展的主要推手。

這次發表的技術充分展現工研院從太陽能板回收、設計、測試、發電,以及儲能系統等五項關鍵技術的全方位解決方案。包括讓太陽能模組可回收再生的「太陽能模組資源化科技」、從太陽能模組製造源頭導入循環科技概念的「易拆解太陽光電模組循環新設計」、提供國際檢驗標準的「太陽光電測試實驗室」、以及利用室內微弱光源發電的「染料敏化電池技術」、讓新舊電池可以互相搭配的「RAIBA可動態重組與自我調節之電池陣列系統」。

此次展出的關鍵技術包括以下五項:

※太陽能模組資源化科技-打造太陽能模組回收示範線,讓回收效益翻倍

隨著政府推動再生能源政策,國內太陽能模組裝置量持續大幅增加,太陽能板設計壽命約20至30年,為及早因應未來必將發生之爆量廢棄問題,工研院開發「太陽能模組資源化技術」,佈局傳統模組(已裝置)高值回收技術,提升傳統太陽能板廢棄後之材料回收價值,這項技術將廢棄太陽能模組透過拆解、破碎、分解與綠色濕法有價金屬提取技術,讓廢棄太陽能板可以回收再生,預估回收資源化效益可從6億元提升到12億元。同時,工研院為了推動廢棄太陽能模組的循環經濟效益,也與產學界合作成立「台灣太陽能模組資源化產業聯盟」,希望透過組織聯盟整合太陽能產業上中下游及循環體系能量,搶攻國際市場。

※易拆解太陽光電模組循環新設計-製造源頭端導入循環科技,讓太陽能板達到近封閉循環的永續目標

既有的「太陽能模組資源化技術」主要是從廢棄端找出回收價值,而工研院新型的「易拆解太陽光電模組循環新設計」則是從太陽能模組製造端,就以易拆解之循環經濟思維導入新材料與新結構設計,讓新型太陽能模組從生產起就考量到後續之資源循環與元件回用。新型易拆解太陽能板,除提升原有發電特性外,汰役廢棄後,更能完整提取高純度銀、矽晶片與玻璃板,大大提高太陽能循環利用價值。

「易拆解太陽光電模組循環新設計」本年度已完成可行性評估與材料測試,明年起在經濟部技術處支持下,將擴大關鍵材料試量產規模,並同步啟動原型模組實驗室與場域測試驗證,並將結合產業界與學界力量,加速易拆解新模組之可靠度與商業化推動,期望以太陽能電池模組的封閉循環設計,提供更潔淨的再生能源,創造人類永續的未來。

※太陽光電測試實驗室—接軌國際,提供國際標準的在地太陽光電檢測服務

工研院為配合國家再生能源政策推動,建立台灣第一座國際太陽光電測試實驗室提供太陽光電產品全方位技術服務,藉此強化我國技術優勢,並透過檢測驗證、國際標準平台互動交流,提升技術擴散範圍及影響力,同時以技術溝通平台連結產業上中下游的意見,在實驗室系統長期運轉有效性、組件的對應規格以及配合場域驗證,發展最迫切需要的驗證與評估技術,並建立相關國際連結,協助我國產業接軌國際市場。

工研院太陽光電測試實驗室依據IEC(國際電工委員會)所制訂定IEC 61215、IEC 61730、美規標準UL1703及台灣CNS (國家標準檢索系統)等標準進行太陽光電測試驗證服務,除常規測試,也提供水質、鹽霧、吹塵與氨氣測試等逾40項特殊加嚴測試,實地模擬自然環境的日照、濕度、水分、風力等因素對太陽能產品的影響。對於台灣沿海侵蝕、水質污染與颱風襲擊等問題,可提供對症下藥的特殊測試項目,協助解決產品開發的難題。

※染料敏化電池技術-只要三根蠟燭的燭光亮度 在室內一樣能發電

工研院染料敏化電池技術,打破過去太陽能只能在戶外發電,透過室內LED、蠟燭等微弱照明,就能產生電力,工研院也與台塑共同研發染料敏化電池驅動電動窗簾,白天利用室內與窗邊的光線即可自主充電;晚間窗簾僅待機與無線傳輸元件耗電,白天所充的電可供電動窗簾 100% 用電需求。這款電動窗簾不靠手動,全憑光源驅動馬達運作。染料敏化電池特色在發電門檻低、可撓化、輕量化、低成本及技術100%掌握等4大優勢,不需昂貴的真空設備與廠房設施即可生產,除了電動窗簾,未來結合AI智能化感測元件,更可擴增染料敏化電池技術應用層面。像是充電桌、智慧家電感測器、自動芳香噴霧器等。目前工研院跟台塑在台南沙崙綠能科學城打造新一代年產量可望達12萬片的試量產線,朝商品化邁進一大步。

※RAIBA可動態重組與自我調節之電池陣列系統-讓新舊電池可以互相搭配,延長壽命

全球首創的「RAIBA可動態重組與自我調節之電池陣列系統」,透過人工智慧控制電池模組的放電負載,可整合新、舊電池模組的儲能系統,讓不同電池模組以有效率的方式互相搭配,減少電池系統無效能量並延長系統循環壽命。例如應用於大型太陽能儲能時,透過RAIBA技術自我電力調節功能下,可免除直流與交流電力間的轉換設備,降低成本約45%,可改善64%的系統衰退程度,延長系統循環壽命223%,更可提高電池系統穩定度。目前已與致茂電子、華城電機、加油站轉型充電站之業者合作。

記者鄧宜/新竹報導

清華大學學生組成的國際志工團過去十年赴中美洲的貝里斯服務,教國小學生及教師使用電腦,累計募集送出5百台二手電腦、24片太陽能板,還提供了18份獎學金幫助貧童完成中學學業。貝里斯副總理兼教育部長法博(Patrick Faber)被這群台灣志工的熱情投入感動,決定頒給清華志工團「貝里斯青年獎章」。

清大表示,貝里斯青年獎章(Belize Youth Awards)是貝國教育部的官方獎章,頒發給對當地社會有影響力及貢獻的15到29歲青年。貝里斯青年獎章今年增設「國際志工服務團隊獎」,清華貝里斯志工團成為首度獲獎的外國團隊。此次頒獎給清華貝里斯志工團的理由是清華團隊致力提升當地教育水準,並達到了「道德、正直、公民及社會責任的最高標準」。由清華大學國際志工貝里斯資訊教育服務團今年的領隊黃聖芬,及明年的領隊黃正太兩人代表領獎。

清華貝里斯志工團成立於2011年,由當時在清華就讀國際專業管理碩士班(IMBA)的貝里斯籍學生萊恩(Kieran Ryan)創立。清華當時已有赴非洲服務的志工團,萊恩看到清華大學學生的強大電腦能力,決定帶著同學到他位於貝里斯西部內陸的故鄉─卡又區,散布資訊的種子。

清華貝里斯志工團去年的副領隊黃健倫表示,志工團最初主要教導偏鄉國小學童簡單的電腦文書處理;後來發現當地能用的電腦有限,又發動募集二手電腦;之後發現當地常缺電、無法啟動電腦,2012年開始募集太陽能板帶到貝里斯。

黃健倫說,志工團學長姐後來又發現超過一半的貝里斯孩童因貧窮而無法完成中學學業,因此自2015年創立獎學金計畫,募集獎學金幫助貧童升學。每年的服務目標都由學長姐一代代傳承,並因應當地的需求變化而逐年微調。

飛到貝里斯領獎的清華教科系畢業生黃聖芬是2017年的志工團員,沒想到海外服務會上癮,今年暑假領隊再度前進貝里斯,8月底回台時還想著「這輩子應該不會再去貝里斯了吧?」沒想到不出2個月,就收到貝里斯教育部的頒獎通知,既驚訝又感激。

黃聖芬表示,她第二度到貝里斯服務時,看到志工團的努力耕耘的確逐步開花結果,如兩年前雜亂簡陋的電腦教室,在喚起師生對資訊教育的興趣後,已全面整理翻新,老師們使用清華學生留下來的教材及二手電腦教學,令她非常感動。

此次一同前往貝里斯領獎的清華大學核工所碩士生黃正太去年就是志工團團員,更是明年的帶團領隊。他表示,清華志工團因長期深耕服務,在當地小有名氣,甚至有一條路就命名為「台灣街」。貝里斯副總理法博今年10月來台訪問,也特別指定要到新竹的清華大學看看。

黃健倫說,他前幾年去貝里斯服務時,不止被當地電視台採訪,還獲頒勳章,「我從沒想過會到轉機40小時、時差長達14小時的貝里斯服務,更沒想到走在路上居然還會被當地人認出來。」黃健倫笑說。

黃聖芬與黃正太皆謙虛表示,自己做得不多,是清華提供了良好的平台,讓學生能把所學貢獻到海外。「參加貝里斯志工團是我大學期間最有意義的事。」黃聖芬表示。

清華大學2007年在現任校長、當時的學務長賀陳弘推動下成立志工團,是國內大專院校第一個成立的國際志工團體,迄今已有6百多位同學赴海外服務,足跡遍及三大洲共8國,包括貝里斯、坦尚尼亞、肯亞、馬來西亞等。

記者林進賢/新竹報導


教育部「藝術教育貢獻獎」每年均發掘對藝術教育扎根與推展有具體貢獻的團體與個人,今年「第6屆教育部藝術教育貢獻獎」的團體獎,新竹縣新埔鎮文山國小以及橫山鄉華山國中分別獲獎。

縣長楊文科表示,這2校都屬迷你學校,2校人數加起來不到200人,但特別在藝術教育方面,表現相當傑出,更發展出獨有的藝術校園風氣,引導孩子們更多的可能性,縣府也全力支持,期盼其他學校也能向他們學習,一起努力讓竹縣學童的發展更加多元。

竹縣府表示,文山國小背倚犁頭山,前眺鳳山溪,校內更有全國最美校樹的百年楓香老樹,擁有美好的自然環境。但社區居民職業以農工為主,學生缺乏藝術與人文資訊刺激,因此學校致力推動藝術教育,引導孩童欣賞藝術、創作藝術,進而品味藝術,讓藝術落實於生活中。

文山國民小學校長王恭志提到,雖然全校不到百人,但是每一個都是人才,全力推動美感教育,讓藝術變成帶得走的能力,並開發多元能力的課程,期盼每位學生都能擁抱藝術,創作更多無限可能,藝術不僅開發學生的想像空間,也提高美學鑑賞能力,讓藝術種子在學生的心中發芽茁壯。感謝教育部的肯定,感謝所有在文山致力於藝術教育的夥伴們,讓藝術教育的使命能在文山國小會持續的發光發熱,讓文山的師生都能深刻感受到藝術的美好。

教育處表示,文山國民小學建立學校藝術教育支持系統,連結社區及社會資源,有效推動藝術教育。規劃多元的藝術課程,學生透過體驗、實作及試探,深化藝術內涵,並豐富學生藝術學習視野,如口琴、弦樂、二胡、北管、客家八音、書法及烏克麗麗等樂器學習,讓藝術成為帶得走的能力。將社區在地文化藝術融入學校教育推動,以培育在地文化傳承的種子,融入多元族群文化的藝術課程,以迷你小校之姿,創造藝術無限教育價值,從A到A+的卓越努力,美得令人動容。

華山國中位處山腳地帶緊鄰著上坪溪,好山好水的環境,使得學校在四季當中都有著豐富的生物樣貌,並積極打造充滿藝術校園,成為偏鄉學校裡的美麗花園,學生自己設計造型菜箱,運用風災過後的廢棄木頭、木板,釘製各種造型的木箱及菜箱,擺放在菜園時也發揮巧思,做出「可食地景」,規劃「菜園也是美花園」的概念,讓學生除體驗種菜外,在視覺上也是一種享受。也將斑駁牆面化身華山十美景,學校牆面老舊斑駁,校園營造多處特色課程(蝙蝠)創作與美化,名畫改編、客家形象特色,已完成之「華山十景」。師生也發揮巧思完成「孝道牆」,希望能傳揚孝道觀念,讓心靈更美。

華山國中更是獲得107年台美生態學校夥伴聯盟,最高綠旗獎勵。透過整合空間資源與發展特學校計畫,完成課程目標「蝠」至心田來,有機豐「華」,建構符合在地特色學校,以培養學生具有健康、素養、能力、創意、美感、永續、有機的目標邁進。華山國中校長張家芸說到,本校屬於偏鄉學校,家長大多務農,每一位教師都竭盡所能關心孩子、用心教導生活教育及課業知識,培養技藝專長。希望幫助偏鄉的學生開啟一扇藝術的窗,為孩子找到更多的可能性,尋找他們藝術天賦,適當的引導更能讓孩子享受藝術,甚至成為終生的樂趣。

學校致力規劃美感校園、藝術課程的深化,將藝術教育作為學校發展重點,期望華山的學生在這塊「生於斯,長於斯」的土地上,開創「蝠(福)至心田,藝術豐華」的篇章,期待讓學生透過藝術學習及學習藝術,能體驗藝術帶來的生命感動。教育處表示,華山國中從校長到老師都在努力幫助偏鄉的學生開啟一扇藝術的窗,在視覺藝術、音樂、表演藝術的課程與活動著墨甚多,讓偏鄉孩子獲得充分學習。該校獲得105年教育部特色與空間營造學校佳作、106年跨領域美感種子學校、106年國教院戶外美感教育示範學校、107年台美生態綠旗認證學校、108年全國客家天穿日合唱優等。

明年元月11日即將舉行總統及立委選舉,新竹市稅務局政風室於選戰倒數42天,星期假日亦持續加強「分眾宣導」,11/30(六)前往新竹市東區區公所三樓禮堂,藉由東區區公所所舉辦之「客家說唱藝術饗宴活動」時,向在場近200名客家族群朋友宣導廉潔及反賄選觀念,期能攜手同心,共同淨化選風。

政風室主任王明禮除向現場鄉親說明目前稅務局加強便民服務措施,達成廉潔、便民及效能之施政目標,現場並進行有獎徵答活動,參加民眾踴躍搶答,展現堅忍的毅力與硬頸的精神,各項廉政宣導,透過有趣的搶答融入於民眾的觀念中。

王明禮說,新竹市約有12萬名客家裔住民,佔新竹市人口數的三成,這個族群的選票也是成為影響選戰關鍵的力量。為讓客家民眾進一步瞭解賄選樣態及賄選涉及刑罰,特別與東區區公所合作,進行反賄選宣導,說明常見賄選手法(例如買票、送禮、招待吃飯或是散布假訊息等以換取選票行為)及如何檢舉賄選及領取高額獎金,讓熱愛這片土地的客家朋友們一起反賄選,選賢與能。

稅務局政風室表示,民眾如發現有賄選情形,除落實「不買票、不賣票、要檢舉」之外,歡迎利用免費檢舉專線(0800-024099,撥通後請撥4)向檢察機關檢舉,揪出賄選者,勇於向賄選說不,讓政府廉潔效能,國泰民安。

為拉近新住民家庭成員距離、強化家庭向心力,移民署新竹市服務站11/30於新竹市外籍配偶關懷協會舉辦「凝聚家庭凝聚愛,幸福錦簇朵朵開」邀請新住民家庭齊心製作越南果凍花。

新竹市服務站主任藍紹譽表示,現代家庭由於生活忙碌且科技進步,3C產品常常替代了家庭成員間的角色,而如何促進家庭經營及提升親子互動關係便顯得日趨重要。移民署近年致力於推動各項移民輔導措施,對於新住民二代培育發展計劃極為重視。而新竹市服務站每月辦理至少一場新住民家庭教育暨法令宣導課程,邀請新住民及其家庭成員共同參與,期望所有家庭都能受惠,在臺共創幸福美滿的安心堡壘。

此次家庭教育課程係邀請來自越南的講師李廣蓮,廣蓮本身心思細膩並具有一雙巧手,平時除了致力推廣越南特色文化之外,也覺得推廣母國文化必須從自身家庭做起,所以平時就會與自己的3名子女共同製作創意越南特色料理,讓孩子藉此瞭解母國風情,創造專屬的親子甜蜜約會

透過「果凍花」製作過程,廣蓮向在場新住民家庭分享凝聚幸福的小撇步,期望大家都能像美麗的果凍花成品「漸層融入開出愛」。來自大陸的吳寶妹表示,平日因忙碌工作而無法時常陪伴子女,雖重視子女教育,但常感到心有餘而力不足,透過此次活動,讓她瞭解家庭需要用心經營,只要勇於付出愛,都能讓彼此幸福感倍增。

【金箔バブルティーも登場予定】幸福堂で黒糖タピオカミルクづくり体験&カナダ初ハンドメイドタピオカ製造機と新メニューもお披露目

 Cache   

皆さん、現在日本で大人気の飲み物といえばバブルティーですよね。

ここカナダ・バンクーバーでも毎年のように新しいバブルティーのお店がオープンしていますが、その中でも特に人気の店舗の一つが、台湾の有名店「幸福堂(Xing Fu Tang)」です。

そんな幸福堂で先日11月24日(日)にメディア&インフルエンサー向けのイベントが開催されたので、LifeVancouverスタッフも行ってきました。そして、

1.自分でつくる!オリジナル黒糖タピオカミルク・ワークショップ 2.カナダ初!ハンドメイドタピオカ製造機の御披露目 3.新メニューの試飲・試食会

というなんとも豪華な内容だったので、今回はイベントの様子などを写真たっぷりに詳しくお届けします。なんと・・・

金箔がトッピングされたバブルティーも幸福堂にクル――(゚∀゚)――!!

 

1.幸福堂(Xing Fu Tang)の黒糖タピオカミルクづくりをバンクーバーで体験

今回イベントが行われたのは、ブロードウェイシティホール駅から徒歩約15分のところにある幸福堂本店(Cambie店)です。

店内に入ると、招待されていたインフルエンサーの皆さんが既にスタンバイ。幸福堂のシグネチャーである黒糖タピオカミルクづくりを体験できるとあって、皆さんワクワクの様子でした。

その後、幸福堂のマネージャーさんから今回のイベントの趣旨などが伝えられ、いよいよシグネチャーメニューである黒糖タピオカミルク(Brown Sugar Pearl Milk)づくりのワークショップが始まりました。

まずは店頭にある大きなお鍋で、黒糖といっしょにタピオカを煮込むところから見せてもらえました。

特製の黒糖に水を少しずつ合わせながら、カラメルをつくるようにかき混ぜ、

次に大量のタピオカを一気に鍋に入れて、黒糖と十分に絡めれば完成! 今回参加者の方は、この黒糖タピオカを使って自身の黒糖タピオカミルクをつくることになっていました。

実際につくる前にはマネージャーさんから、カップの内側側面全体に黒糖タピオカの色が付くように入れると良いとのアドバイスを受けて、いよいよスタート!

ちなみに今回使用したのは通常の丸みを帯びたタイプのカップではなく、新しい「ダイヤモンドカップ」で、より高級感が出る容器でした。

(黒糖タピオカ。キラキラと輝いていました)

(招待された方一人ひとりがカップを片手に黒糖タピオカを入れる様子。皆さん真剣!)

(マネージャーさんが隣でアドバイスをくれるので安心でした)

インフルエンサーの皆さんが終わった後に、LifeVancouverスタッフも手の使い方がよく分からないままやらせてもらったのですが、片手でカップを回す動きが遅すぎて変な汗かきました(笑)

その後、氷とミルク、クリームを順に加えて、一番上にパウダーを振りバーナーで表面を少し焦がせば完成!

皆さん初めて幸福堂の黒糖タピオカミルクをつくることができたとあって、とっても嬉しそうでした。

 

2.カナダ初!ハンドメイドのタピオカ製造機のお披露目

オリジナル黒糖タピオカミルク体験の後は、カナダ初のハンドメイドタピオカ製造機のお披露目がありました。

実は、2019年12月1日から幸福堂のCambie店のみ店頭でタピオカを手作りするとのことで、今後Cambie店に行けばハンドメイドのタピオカを使ったバブルティーをいただくことができるようになります。

こねたタピオカの生地を製造機に入れると、丸くなったタピオカがポロポロと出てきてビックリ!

ぜひ皆さんもCambie店で新鮮な手作りタピオカを味わってみてください。また、店頭ではタピオカをつくる様子も間近に見ることができるようになるので、こちらも要チェックです。

 

3.金箔をあしらったバブルティー?!新メニューの紹介

カナダ初のタピオカ製造機のお披露目の後は、今後発売予定の新メニューが紹介されました!一つずつ紹介します。

 

3-1. 最高のインスタ映え「金箔黒糖タピオカミルク」(※12月1日から販売予定)

まず見せてもらったのが、台湾でも先日発売開始されたばかりという金箔がトッピングされたインスタ映え抜群の黒糖タピオカミルクです。持って歩いているだけで注目を集めるのは必至ではないでしょうか?

以下の幸福堂(台湾)の公式アカウントの眩いばかりの写真も見てください。一度は試してみたくなってしまう魅惑の逸品です。

Podcast: Lifestyle changes for treating psoriasis

 Cache   

Psoriasis is a common skin problem and there are several Cochrane Reviews of various ways to treat it. These were added to in July 2019 with the publication of a new review on the potential benefits of lifestyle changes. We asked Professor Ching-Chi Chi from the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taoyuan Taiwan to tell us what they found.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. It causes thick, red, itching, and scaling plaques, and affects more than 100 million people worldwide.

Obesity, drinking, smoking, and lack of physical activity may make the condition worse, and we wanted to find out whether changes to these lifestyle factors might help. We were particularly interested in things such as diet and exercise; and although we also wanted to investigate interventions targeting smoking or alcohol consumption; we found no trials on alcohol abstinence or smoking cessation.

We examined the research evidence that was available up to July 2018, and identified 10 relevant randomised trials, with a total of approximately 1,200 participants. The quality of evidence was moderate to low, with study limitations including participants knowing which treatment they were receiving and a large number of withdrawals from the trials.

However, we were able to draw some conclusions. We found that among obese patients with psoriasis, dietary intervention with a low-calorie diet may reduce the severity of psoriasis, and probably improves their quality of life and reduces their body mass index, or BMI. Also, among obese patients with psoriasis, combined low-calorie diet and exercise programme probably reduces the severity of psoriasis and BMI. Generally, participants complied with the assessed lifestyle changes successfully.

When compared to usual care, we found no evidence that education promoting healthy lifestyle alone without explicit dietary intervention or an exercise programme had an effect on the severity of psoriasis.

In summary, among obese patients with psoriasis, a low-calorie diet with or without an exercise programme may improve the severity of psoriasis and probably improves quality of life and BMI. However, whether dietary interventions prolong the time to relapse or whether it is effective in non-obese patients with psoriasis remains unclear.

Mientras que el HTC Desire 19+ cuesta oficialmente 9.490 dólares taiwaneses, el nuevo HTC Desire 19s se sitúa en los 5.990. Es una rebaja importante teniendo en cuenta que el primero se lanzó hace unos pocos meses, y que supone especificaciones más modestas, pero no en tanto grado como la rebaja del precio.

En la pantalla, sin cambios: una diagonal de 6,2 pulgadas con resolución HD+ y un notch en forma de V en su parte superior para albergar a la cámara frontal de 16 megapíxeles, también igual que en el HTC Desire 19+.

En la cámara principal sí hay algunos cambios. Es también una cámara de tres lentes, aunque en esta ocasión formada por un sensor principal de 13 megapíxeles con apertura f/1.85, un angular de 5 megapíxeles y otro sensor más de 5 megapíxeles.

China

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fuck that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  8. A political prisoner is someone who is imprisoned for political reasons, rather than legal reasons. In the eyes of Chinese law, there may be a legal standing for the imprisonment of some of these people, but because this is often based on dissent from the single political party, I consider these prisoners political as well. A related term is “prisoner of conscience”, and for the purposes of this article I do not distinguish between the two; the execution of either kind of prisoner is a crime against humanity regardless.

  27. As pointed out by Hong Kongers reading this article, Hong Kong has a separate definition of rioting, which is not a capital offense. For my part, I am not entirely convinced that China isn’t planning to use the “riots” classification as justification for a violent response.

Taiwan Manufacturing Unchanged In November - IHH

 Cache   

The manufacturing sector in Taiwan continued to contract in November, and at the same pace, the latest survey from IHH revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 49.8.

That's unchanged from the October reading, and it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, output and new orders both fell slightly, while export sales continued to decline at a solid pace.

Output prices were cut again despite higher input costs. Workforce numbers were unchanged in November, following a four-month sequence of expansion.

Food Tripping in Taipei, Taiwan: Part One

 Cache   
After sharing with you my adventures in Taiwan, here's come another fun part of it which is the food. Taiwan is known as a haven for food-lover because of its rich cuisine in cheap prices so I had huge expectations. Needless to say, my expectations were met. So here's a daily account of what I ate during my trip.

Day 1. I arrived in Taiwan around lunch time so it was only apt that my first meal there was for lunch. Because I wanted to try local cuisine, I went to a noodle house where the menu was in Chinese with no photos of the food whatsoever, plus the staff spoke very little English. I ended up getting a bowl of stir fried noodles with pork and veggies, and it was good.
stir-fried noodles with pork, egg, bean sprouts and spring onions
at Nine Soup House

After having a nice lunch, I went to buy myself some bubble tea because that's one of the things that Taiwan is famous for.
brown sugar milk tea at Jenjuden

Day 2. For breakfast, I ate at the hostel. They have a free breakfast which consists of toast, jam, chocolate spread, tuna spread, and fresh eggs, which you can cook however you want. They also have free coffee and tea throughout the day. It was good, given the cheap price of the accommodations.

After breakfast, I then proceeded to join the walking tour that I signed up for via Klook. After about an hour of walking, we had a quick stop at an ice cream shop in Ximending.
strawberry, vanilla, and passion fruit ice cream at Yongfu Ice Cream

That evening, I went to Shilin Night Market to try out the street food. Here is everything that I ate there.
fried dumplings
fried quail eggs

As if everything I ate was not enough, I still decided to go out and got myself some late evening "snack" at a famous fried chicken stall near my hostel.
chicken popcorn at J&G Fried Chicken
potato fries at J&G Fried Chicken

Day 3. Because I had an early tour, I wasn't able to eat some breakfast at the hostel so I ate the leftover chicken from the night before. For lunch, I ate at this tea house in Jiufen where they served really good dim sum. I also tried out some local Taiwanese beer.
xiao long bao at Shanhai Guam Dim Sum Restaurant
pork buns at Shanhai Guam Dim Sum Restaurant
shrimp dumplings at Shanhai Guam Dim Sum Restaurant
Taiwan Beer

I also tried some yummy street food at the Shifen Old Street. 
fried squid balls
Yakult slushie

That is all for now. Since this is such a long post, day four and day five will be in the next one. 'Til the next post, lovelies.

They're utilizing an application referred to as FireChat that released in March and is underpinned by mesh networking, which allows telephones unite to type a brief Net. rthkcomfirmdown firechat down, AppStore PlayStore FireChat.... http://t.co/7Pz9KbW6sr Joshua Wong (@joshuawongcf) September 28, 2014 Up to now, mesh networks have established them selves pretty efficient and speedily adopted in the course of occasions of disaster or political unrest, because they really don't count on present cable and wi-fi networks. In Iraq, tens of 1000s of people have Taylor Gabriel Jersey downloaded FireChat as the governing administration limitations connectivity within an work to suppre s ISIS communications. Protesters in Taiwan this spring turned to FireChat when mobile indicators had been as well weak and from time to time nonexistent. And FireChat's attractivene s is surging in Hong Kong. About one hundred,000 buyers downloaded the totally free FireChat application involving Sunday early morning and Monday morning, in keeping with The Wall Road Journal. Though there aren't any reports of cell-network outages up to now, university student leaders are recommending FireChat for fear authorities may perhaps shut off communications. Gizmodo describes why mesh networks could be important through tense showdowns with governments:"Mesh networks are an particularly resilient software mainly because you can find no quick way for your authorities to shut them down. They cannot just block mobile reception or perhaps a internet site addre s. Mesh networks are like Voldemort soon after he break up his soul into horcruxes (only not evil). Destroying one particular element will not eliminate it unle s you destroy every place of obtain; somebody must flip off Bluetooth on each and every cellphone applying FireChat to wholly break the relationship. This hard-to-break link David Montgomery Jersey isn't tremendous significant for informal chats, but throughout tense political showdowns, it could be a lifeline." And as now we have earlier reported, Open Garden, the organization that produced FireChat and an Android mesh networking app also known as Open Yard, has even larger ambitions for mesh networking:The Two-WayWhat's At Stake For Hong Kong?The Two-WayHong Kong Tense As Democracy Activists Experience Down PoliceAll Tech ConsideredHow A single Application May very well be A Phase Towards World wide web Everywhere"Once you make a mesh community ... now you've got a community that is certainly resilient, self-healing, are unable to be controlled by any central firm, are not able to be shut down and is also normally performing," Christophe Daligault, Open Garden's vp for profits and marketing states. "I believe that solves a number of other negatives or worries from the cell broadband Net today." https://www.bearsglintshop.com/Pat-O-Donnell-Jersey He says none of this can be attainable with no quick spread of smartphones, for the reason that meaning no more hardware is required. "Each [phone] will become a router as well as in a sense you're rising the world wide web everyone who joins the mesh community generates an extension on the Online," Daligault suggests. "In a yr or two from now, I believe individuals will never even remember that you just had to be on Wi-Fi or receive a mobile sign to be able to converse."

單親媽重拾笑容 孩子最渴望的獎

 Cache   
「媽媽,妳為何不再婚?」
「經歷過失去所愛的痛苦,沒辦法再經歷一次。」
這是吳同學與媽媽的一段對話。
 
「爸爸走了之後,媽媽有段時間很少笑,那時候覺得只要有一個爸爸,媽媽的笑容就會回來了。」這是一位單親孩子對的媽媽單純的心願。
 
吳媽媽是越南新住民,2011年先生罹癌往生,當時吳同學就讀國小二年級,吳媽媽獨自扛起家計,教會的負責人將之通報給慈濟關懷,志工八年來陪伴至今。
 
相依為命 不問苦彼此關懷
 
吳同學母子倆住在一棟四樓公寓的頂樓,那是一間三坪大的雅房。屋內只有一張床、一張書桌及簡單家具用品,公共衛浴則是和樓下的住戶共用。
 
進到吳同學家,打開鋁門就是一個很狹窄的陽台,沒有任何遮蔽,廚房就設在這兒。瓦斯爐是回收回來的,開啟爐火,微弱的火苗還要用手搧一搧才會全部點燃。
 
「在這裡做飯,夜晚可以看星星,很涼爽。還可以探頭出去看,兒子放學回來了沒?好處很多啊!」生活的困苦,吳媽媽輕輕帶過。
 
「若遇下雨怎麼辦?」志工異口同聲地問。吳同學快速地從身旁拿出一樣東西:「我們家有一個電磁爐,就煮麵來吃!」
 
母子倆日常生活簡單平淡,媽媽總是把家裡打掃得一塵不染。生活雖然處處克難,但彼此很照顧對方,從不因為環境不好而抱怨。因為住屋空間有限,只有一張床,母子倆一人睡床、一人睡地板,中間用一個布簾隔開。冬天吳同學會選擇睡地板,讓媽媽睡床上比較溫暖;而夏天頂樓酷熱,他就改睡床,讓媽媽睡地板比較涼快。
 
雖然失去父愛,讓吳同學的童年有些缺憾;但母子倆相依為命,也充滿難忘的回憶。吳媽媽說:「有次我流感生病的時候發燒到四十度,阿志一直在旁邊幫我用冰水敷額頭,拿水給我喝,手一直摸我額頭,看我退燒沒?」媽媽感嘆,過去總是忙忙碌碌地過生活,對於身邊的人事物也沒有特別的感受。但是經過自己大病一場後,身邊有個兒子無微不至的照顧,突然才感受到,「有個兒子真好!」
 
吳同學沒有補習,靠自己苦讀,考上臺中一中。同學都來自中部地區的資優生,學校出題難度頗高,所以他的成績僅在中後段。志工陳建華總是像大哥哥的陪伴,安慰他盡力而為,但也不要壓力過大。
 
志工湯鈺環不忍見吳同學面對繁重課業,拚盡全力成績仍不理想,甚至不及格;問他否需要補習?但吳同學卻回答:「補習先不要,想先幫媽媽省錢,等學測之前再去補習好了!」一切的種種,總是以媽媽為修先考量。
 
反轉手心見幸福 處處貼心謝親恩
 
有一天,大雅區慈濟志工要幫一戶身心障礙的家庭打掃居家環境,湯鈺環約了他一起參與。吳同學和志工一起努力地將雜物一件件地搬出去。
 
「搬這些雜物的時候,感覺就像把心裡面的煩惱,一件一件搬出去。」雖然清掃很累,吳同學卻很開心。他說:「我們家比這裡小很多,但平常有整理很乾淨,可以活動的空間也覺得蠻大的。」
 
2019年吳同學榮獲慈濟新芽獎學金孝悌獎,他上台分享,「感恩媽媽,母兼父職十六年來的照顧,媽媽給的愛與父親在時一樣,從沒感覺減少過。」吳同學表示,自己為媽媽做的並不多,只是幫忙做一點家事,幫媽媽按摩而已。反倒是就算家中經濟雖然不好,但別人有的自己也不會少,「這一切,都是母親用勞力,以長工時辛苦工作換來的。」
 
站在身旁的吳媽媽聽到兒子的分享,聲淚俱下。回到座位上,她很感恩的說:「其實我很想告訴大家,其實兒子做很多、很貼心,從不讓自己擔心,讀書、打掃、煮飯都做得很好。但是自己太愛哭了,說不出話來。」
 
志工陪伴母子倆一路走來,真心感受到媽媽內心充滿安慰,看著媽媽淚裡帶笑,志工歡喜地對吳同學說:「孩子你做到了!媽媽的笑容回來了。」【更多內容,請參閱慈濟全球社區網

續援建愛 開啟臺東仁愛之家牙醫義診

 Cache   
洗牙的機器聲滋滋的運作,參雜洗牙嘎嘎的聲音,此起彼落地響著;醫生哄著:「不拔牙,不拔牙……不要哭啦,你最乖、最棒﹗」;志工們在旁:「乖乖喲,張開嘴喲,不怕、不怕,忍耐一下,很快就好了……加油﹗」周圍五位志工、牙醫助理呵護著一床腦性麻痺的就診者,甚至唱起歌謠⋯⋯這樣的場景輪流在義診現場上演著。
 
愛是良藥 能給勇氣
 
北、南、中、東四區有醫護人員和志工共計一百七十一人,11月23日來到「臺東創世基金會」為住民進行牙醫義診。
 
考量到需求人醫會資源的臺東鄉親大多坐輪椅,看診需使用輪椅架比較方便,而北區是第一次使用輪椅架,所以在11月17日就集合團隊,進行標準組裝流程訓練,並在義診前一天(22日)將器材運到現場並完成組裝,讓義診得以在23日中午過後順利展開。
 
當天參與的志工曹淑慧表示:「看到在社會各有不同專長的一群大男人,不分你我,合心配合互相成就,感受到合和互協的力量,令人感動。」
 
有了輪椅架,住民坐在輪椅上即可仰躺就醫。但義診開始,考驗也一一展開;高音頻的機器聲嚇得住民緊閉著嘴巴⋯⋯醫生和助理不斷安撫、志工也使出渾身解數,終於讓就診者破涕為笑順利看診。
 
殷勤精進 化思念為助人動力 

義診能否順利進行,還有這一項功不可沒。水電是牙科洗牙的主要動力,確保若有狀況能馬上處理,是管線組志工的任務,因此他們必須隨時待命。負責水電的陳清池今年(2019)五月加入人醫團隊,義診現場大家無私的付出,令他憶及往生的太太。「我家師姊二月份往生,臨走時,叮嚀我要精進慈濟菩薩道。我想整天待在家裡,不如出來和大家一起出勤務,比較容易度過傷痛。」
 
水電管線是陳清池的專才,退休後,他全心陪伴生病的太太,其間感受到法親的關懷,也因此加入人醫會,有需要就補位。他歇了一下,換了口氣,欣慰地接著說:「我應該有做到了師姊的期待。」
 
陳清池自我期許趕快走出喪偶的傷痛,精進往前走,雖說難免思念,但他清楚地明白,想想就要趕緊放下,有很多事情等著做呀﹗一轉身,看見他身穿綠藍色隔離衣的身形,投入人群中幫忙,那身影一點都不孤單。
 
援建結善緣 義診延續愛
 
臺東私立仁愛之家自創立以來,本著慈善的心幫助著臺東地區需要照顧的老人。因為舊大樓已滿床,空間嚴重不足,慈濟2018年動工援建新大樓,牽起更深的緣分。
 
仁愛之家林鴻祺主任很高興結合慈濟人醫會讓住民有優質的醫療照護,日後希望人醫會可以定期來關懷。更重要的是希望機構裡的員工能夠學習洗牙之後如何維護,他期許透過人醫會團隊提升照護員各方面的醫療知識,好讓居住在這寬敞舒適空間裡的長者,身體健健健康、快樂過每一天。
 
圓滿臺東私立「仁愛之家」第一場口腔保健健康關懷,人醫團隊收拾妥散步出互愛樓,涼涼寒意的初冬,心卻是無比的溫暖。【更多內容,請參閱慈濟全球社區網

Two countries, two systems

 Cache   

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

Assegnati i Beat Yesterday Awards 2019

 Cache   

Lo sport, quello vero, quello praticato e vissuto in prima persona. Questo è il modo di concepire le sfide ai Beat Yesterday Awards 2019. I premi sono stati consegnati martedì 26 novembre ai protagonisti di 8 imprese sportive e non soltanto. 

Quarta edizione dei Beat Yesterday Awards, iniziativa di Garmin che premia quanti competono per superare i risultati di "ieri"Il palco ha visto l’alternarsi di grandi campioni di ieri e di oggi che insieme a personaggi dello spettacolo, hanno assegnato i riconoscimenti. Premiato - da Christian Ghedina - Carlo Alberto "Cala" Cimenti, per la scalata e la discesa con gli sci dal Nanga Parbat e dal Gasherbrum VII.

Il mondo della montagna protagonista anche con il riconoscimento per il Corpo Nazionale Soccorso Alpino e Speleologico che, dalle mani del CT della nazionale di ciclismo Davide Cassani, ha ricevuto il premio per l’attività svolta lo scorso anno, quando sono state portate a termine 9.554 missioni di soccorso: un numero record, mai registrato dal suo anno di fondazione.

I monti della Valle d'osta sono stati la cornice dell'impresa di Oliviero Bosatelli, il trail runner bergamasco che ha vinto il Tor De Geants 2019: 330 chilometri e 24.000 metri di dislivello. Chi lo vince due volte come Bosatelli è il Re dei giganti.  L’atleta bergamasco è stato premiato da Stefano Baldini.

Premiata anche l'assegnazione dei Giochi Olimpici 2026 a Milano – Cortina: il Sottosegretario con delega ai Grandi Eventi Sportivi di Regione Lombardia, Antonio Rossi, e l’Assessora al turismo, sport e qualità della vita del comune di Milano, Roberta Guaineri, hanno ricevuto da Linus il premio per il grande lavoro che è valso l’obiettivo a cinque cerchi.

Un’impresa estrema, questa volta in acque libere, è quella che è valsa il Beat Yesterday Awards -  consegnato da Giorgio Rocca - a Paolo Chiarino, il nuotatore italiano che ha nuotato per un chilometro tra i ghiacci dell’Antartide

Il velista Giovanni Soldini ha invece consegnato il riconoscimento al team di Anvera Elab 38, la barca italiana a propulsione elettrica che ha partecipato al Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge.

Sul palco anche Daniel Fontana che, a quasi 44 anni, ha staccato il pass per i mondiali Ironman di Kona, la sua sesta finale mondiale, grazie alla vittoria all’Ironman di Taiwan. Lo ha premiato Alberto Bettiol.

I Beat Yesterday Awards 2019 hanno visto, infine, la premiazione di Obiettivo 3, la fondazione promossa da Alex Zanardi che punta a diffondere la pratica sportiva tra i portatori di disabilità. A Barbara Manni e Pieralberto Buccoliero è stato consegnato il premio di Garmin Italia da Norma Gimondi, figlia dell'indimenticato Felice scomparso ad agosto.

Mercoledì 27 novembre alle 20.30 sarà possibile vedere tutte le premiazioni sui profili ufficiali di Garmin Italia.



          

Are You Letting Society or the Spirit Shape Your Story?

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are beautiful! I see Jesus in you.

十一月開什麼花:2019 年 11 月 iGarden 頂樓花園實錄

 Cache   

十一月,山空道冷,凜冽的風把大地一掃而空。所有暖季花卉最終還是抵不過季節更替,一個個從花園退場。

雖然有點不捨,但也因為氣溫慢慢下降,涼季的植物才能緩緩探出頭。

春播的萬壽菊,為暖季花做壓軸退場;迎接而來的天竺葵球根海棠金蓮花,已悄悄破土。冬天的來臨,遠看蕭條,近看其實充滿生機。

一起來欣賞 iGarden 頂樓花園十一月記錄:

夕顏
[2019年11月1日] 趕在假日前上樓把頂樓的植物澆濕透。遠遠就看見牆邊有一團白影,原來是花季末的夕顏呀!提早在 5 點就綻放了。

上週才播種百日草天竺葵,這週就長出子葉了。
[2019年11月4日] 上週播下的種子,有一部份已長出綠色子葉囉!

其中有百日草天竺葵,它們發芽速度較快,播種後 2 天就能看到破土而出的苗株。

剛好有一個大的透明塑膠袋,播種後蓋在盆面上方,幫忙維持濕度。
播種後怕風大造成表土水氣蒸散太快,所以園丁在盆子上方分別蓋了透明塑膠袋及飲料杯蓋,保濕的同時光線也能穿透,有利於好光性種子的發芽。

平常收集的冷飲杯蓋,也可蓋在 3 吋盆的盆面維持濕度。
注意:如果表面有包覆塑膠袋、保鮮膜或加蓋,都要避開強烈陽光直射喔!

金蓮花 佛客使-混合
[2019年11月6日] 10 月 1 日播下的「金蓮花 佛客使-混合」,經過 1 個多月的時間,綠油油的葉子已快填滿花槽。

毬蘭
[2019年11月7日] 一直覺得這款毬蘭的香味很熟悉,只是無法跟腦海中的味道庫配對聯結。今天聞了花香後,腦中浮出杏仁豆腐的影像,原來是杏仁茶的味道啊!

毬蘭的花香真得很迷人,而且花葉變異大,極富樂趣。

來看看園丁的其它款毬蘭:

斷葉毬蘭
這是「斷葉毬蘭」,它花朵雖然小,但走到旁邊也可以聞到她所散發的淡淡甜香。

斷葉毬蘭
園丁將斷葉毬蘭種在家裡陽台,上午會曬到些太陽,其餘時間也都有明亮光線。

因為有充足的光照,斷葉毬蘭的小花非常耐開,常常有花可以欣賞。

香水毬蘭
陽台還有「香水毬蘭」,只開幾串陽台就香噴噴的,很令人陶醉喔!

球根海棠
[2019年11月8日] 這是去年秋播的球根海棠,它在今年春末進入休眠期。至從它休眠後,園丁就停止為它澆水,並把球根放在冰箱保存。

等到 10 月中旬,再拿出球根重新種植,等待它重新長大。(將球根淺埋於土表,讓頂端露出土面。)

現在,球根們感受到氣候合宜,開始萌芽展葉囉!好期待看到它再度開花。

回顧:
球根海棠球根(拍攝於 2019/06/26)
[2019年6月26日] 6 月底,當時園丁整理空盆時,發現土裡的球根都還很健康,於是另用紙袋包裹放置冰箱保存。

萬壽菊 金翅鳥-金黃
[2019年11月11日] 還不想退場的「萬壽菊 金翅鳥-金黃」依舊高舉著金色花球。

這週預備清園,把花朵全部採收瓶插,為秋播草花的定植作準備。看到萬壽菊依舊有精神,還真有點捨不得讓它退場呀。

玉鳳蘭
[2019年11月12日] 今年的玉鳳蘭花期晚了,往年大約 11 月初就開花。沒關係,再多給她一點時間,讓花苞肥大,相信它一定會開出很美的花。

腎葉堇菜
[2019年11月13日] 這盆「腎葉堇菜」是上週六逛花市的戰利品之一。

腎葉堇菜非常喜歡喝水,如果沒有時間幫她捕充水份,可以在盆底放個積水容器,保持積水 2-3 公分;再搭配充足的光照,很快走莖又會向四處蔓生囉!

彩葉草 小金剛-黃心綠框邊
[2019年11月14日] 通常一見到彩葉草新芽中心冒出花序,都會反射性地動手摘除。某次漏摘了一串「彩葉草 小金剛-黃心綠框邊」的花序,發現它淺紫色的花,跟黃綠色的葉片相互搭襯。於是園丁就手下留情,讓這些花序恣意地開放。

目前 金蓮花 佛客使-混合 葉子舖滿整個花槽。
[2019年11月15日] 再來更新一下「金蓮花 佛客使-混合」的生長進度:

茂盛的掌狀葉片,已覆蓋花槽表面。小心翻開葉片,往葉腋觀察,已經可以看到可愛的小花苞了!

有看到嗎?金蓮花 佛客使-混合 可愛的小花苞已經冒出來了!

10 月 30 日播下四款天竺葵種子,可以由葉色及葉型辨別出品種的差異。
[2019年11月18日] 上週四,發現頂樓的天竺葵苗區,被鳥襲擊!土被挖得到處都是,苗株也被連根拔起。

還好可以由葉色及葉型辨別出品種差異,趕緊把還有救的苗埋回正確的位置。搶救完後,園丁把葉子有銳刺的龍舌蘭擺在一旁,也在盆面插了鐵絲,好防止鳥兒再來攻擊。

天竺葵、龍舌蘭
天氣轉涼,鳥兒們的食物來源減少,所以牠們就對小苗們特別感興趣,每到這個季節都要特別注意一下。

若不幸遭遇鳥害,被叼出來的苗如果發現的早,即時埋回去是沒問題的。最怕發現時已變菜乾,那就沒救了。

萬壽菊 金翅鳥-金黃
[2019年11月19日] 就在今天,把所有的「萬壽菊 金翅鳥-金黃」的花朵全部採收下來,聚集成一大把花,看起來是不是很有成就感啊?

蘆薈
[2019年11月20日] 同事栽種的蘆薈正在開花,跟我們分享了美照。蘆薈是居家必種的植物之一,可以栽種於陽台或住家附近。

每當皮膚被太陽曬的紅腫刺痛時,敷上蘆薈多汁的葉肉,不久後就有舒緩效果喔!

金蓮花 佛客使-混合
[2019年11月21日] 上週「金蓮花 佛客使-混合」才冒出小花苞,今日花朵就露臉了。

金蓮花 佛客使-混合 的花型非常有個性,跟常見的金蓮花不太相同。而且且播種至開花只花了 8 週不到的時間(2019 年 10 月 1 日播種)!這麼優秀的品種,一定要推薦給新手。

金蓮花 佛客使-混合 花朵半開放狀態。
金蓮花 佛客使-混合 花朵半開放時的造型也很特殊喔!

玉鳳蘭
[2019年11月22日] 花期比往年晚的玉鳳蘭,終於開花了!預期下週更多花苞開放後,畫面會更熱鬧。

香堇菜 小藍兔
[2019年11月25日] 往年都要等到 11 月,才有空播下香堇菜種子;今年搶先在 9 月 20 就先播下「香堇菜 小粉兔」跟「香堇菜 小藍兔」。

目前小藍兔的成長速度領先,花朵已經跳出來囉!而小粉兔正努力追趕進度中。

金蓮花 佛客使-混合
[2019年11月26日] 「金蓮花 佛客使-混合」上週四開出第一朵橘色花,沒幾日的時間,花朵數激增,黃色花也露臉囉!已經摘了好幾朵謝花,花朵數還是很多。

金蓮花 佛客使-混合
這株「金蓮花 佛客使-混合」開出黃色花,跟一旁的橘色花互相搭襯。

天竺葵 光電-混合(左上)、天竺葵 卡巴萊-混合(右上)、天竺葵 大眼睛-混合(左下)、天竺葵 鼓舞-混合(右下)
[2019年11月28日] 天竺葵苗已經長到該分株種植的大小囉!在幫她們分家之前,先拍張大合照。這四盆裡分別種了四個品種,四種天竺葵葉型跟葉色皆不相同。

球根海棠 波浪系列
有播過秋海棠種子的朋友,一定會對秋海棠苗期的「龜速成長」留下印象。

而今年 10 月中旬,園丁由球根開始種起的球根海棠(品種:波浪系列),成長速度卻快得另人超有成就感!

草總是長的比拔的還快,拔草就是要一鼓作氣!
[2019年11月29日] 擺脫連日陰雨,趕緊將荒亂已久的雜草清空。週末如果沒有特別計劃,趕緊趁著明日仍有好天氣,為涼季的小苗們的定植作準備吧!

愛花精選:早春花仙子-羽扇豆 艾娃

 Cache   
羽扇豆 艾娃 開花性佳,一株同時抽出十餘串花。

iGarden 花寶愛花園在 2015 年秋季,首次引進了「羽扇豆 艾娃-紅白雙色」種子。此羽扇豆品系不需要低溫春化,播種後不到三個月就開花,在當時可是讓眾人給予艾娃系列極好的評價。

另外,羽扇豆 艾娃系列 花芽分化亦不受日長影響,不需苦苦等到長日條件才開花。根據我們的栽培經驗,從播種到開出第一串花,大約只需 12 週的時間,耗時不到三個月,光是這點就比傳統品種(約 4-5 月才會開花)勝出許多!

園丁在種植過程中,除了對她「早開花」的優勢感到印象深刻,對於她優異的分枝性也極為讚賞。來看看園丁 2015 年秋季,栽種 羽扇豆艾娃系列 的初體驗:

回顧「羽扇豆 艾娃-紅白雙色」種植心得

羽扇豆 艾娃-紅白雙色 有粉粉柔柔的花色,是春天的代表色;花朵也有宜人的香氣,春暖花開賞花之時,還能聞香,真是不可多得的好品種。

2015/10/30 播下種子,2016/1/25 第一串花盛開。播種只過三個月就有花可賞。

以前試種的羽扇豆植株龜很久也不會開花;常常天氣一熱,還未等到開花就得病掛了。就這一個品系沒讓我們失望,未來有機會還想再試試其它花色。

第一串花序凋謝,側花序立即同時抽出。

雖然 2016 年一月頻頻下雨,不過她是採露天栽培,雨沒有少淋過,寒流來時也沒收進來,植株生長良好,也順利開花。

當時觀察到每個側芽的中心都會抽出花序,隨著分枝增加,有機會好幾串花同時盛開。

羽扇豆 艾娃系列 花朵清新可人,還有宜人的甜香味喔!

如此優秀的品種,真是讓人印象深刻。而 iGarden 去年(2018 年)秋天引進了「羽扇豆 艾娃-混合」,它混合了不同花色的艾娃系列種子,園丁當然也沒錯過,馬上捲起袖子種看看!

以下是園丁 2018 年秋播的栽種記錄:

和先前頂樓花園栽種的 羽扇豆 艾娃-紅白雙色 不同,羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 光從種子表皮的顏色,就可以看出此為混合花色品種。有的種皮是白色,有的種皮是深咖啡或淺咖啡色。

園丁在2018年11 月中旬(2018/11/13)播種,期待它們能讓花園更加繽紛。

播種後 3 天,羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 發芽囉!種子的種皮有的咖啡色,有的是白色。(拍攝時間:2018/11/16)

[2019年1月15日] 羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 最先開出白色的花朵!

濃郁的香氣讓園丁們開起品香大會,有人覺得這款花香跟晚香玉(也被稱作夜來香)接近,有人覺得與月橘(七里香)相仿,不管是哪種香味,結論都是這花真的超香!

從播種到開花只花了 2 個多月,艾娃系列 的「早生特性」果然沒讓我們失望。

另一株 羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 開出了粉白雙色的花。(拍攝時間:2019/01/15)

羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 源源不絕的開花實力,是給栽培者最好的鼓勵!(拍攝時間:2019/03/12)
羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 花期近尾聲,花串雖然變小了,依舊奮力地開著花。(拍攝時間:2019/03/15)
羽扇豆 艾娃-混合 算一算約有 3 個月的賞花期,CP 值算很高。(拍攝時間:2019/03/19)

傳統羽扇豆都要耗時 4-5 個月才能開始賞花;而 羽扇豆 艾娃系列 只需 2 個月就能開出第一輪花。且開花力十足,3 個多月的賞花期內,開花一輪接一輪,一串接一串,美麗不缺席。

整個春天都因它而擁有滿滿的好心情,非常推薦給想要嚐試栽種羽扇豆的朋友喔!

季節交替就種它,花園也能不空窗-百日草 仙度瑞拉

 Cache   
百日草 仙度瑞拉系列 花色鮮豔,花型特殊。
雖然百日草是耐熱草花,但在台灣秋季播種表現也相當不錯。特別是在季節交接,涼季草花還未開花前,播下生長期需時較短的百日草(播種至開花約 1.5~2 個月),能讓花園的繽紛沒有空窗期。

早在幾年前,iGarden 就曾推出 百日草 仙度瑞拉-淺紫粉;近幾年,此系列又陸續新增多款不同花色。因此園丁搶先在 2018 年夏末,趁天氣轉涼之前,試播了 百日草 仙度瑞拉系列 種子。

她們僅耗時兩個月的時間,就由種子長成花莖滿滿的植株,且開出來的花朵色彩飽滿、花型變化豐富。看到這麼傑出的品種,怎麼能不推薦給大家呢?!

百日草 仙度瑞拉系列 會開出單瓣或是半重瓣的花朵,亮眼的花色十分討喜。(拍攝時間:2018/12/04)

九月底(2018/9/28),趁天氣轉涼前,園丁就為 百日草 仙度瑞拉 播下種子。播種後,才過 3 天就見到小芽破土而出。

百日草 仙度瑞拉系列 包含多種花色,園丁將不同花色分植於不同盆中,若有些花色種在同一盆,會用小木棍來當分隔線。

播種後約 10 天的 百日草 仙度瑞拉,本葉長出來了。(拍攝時間:2018/10/08)
播種後約 4 週的 百日草 仙度瑞拉 像吹氣似的長大。(拍攝時間:2018/10/24)
注意到了嗎?百日草 仙度瑞拉 植株頂端出現小花苞了!(拍攝時間:2018/10/29)

11 月花苞展露,群花齊放

播種後 5 週 ,百日草 仙度瑞拉 的葉片幾乎快覆滿盆面。(拍攝時間:2018/11/02)
播種後約過 1 個月,百日草 仙度瑞拉 葉子肥壯了,也出現花苞囉!

百日草 仙度瑞拉 花朵開出來了,初開時花型還不是很完整,會越開越立體。(拍攝時間:2018/11/08)
播種後 6 週(約 1.5 個月),花朵陸續綻放中,開始期待它們群花齊放的盛況。

百日草 仙度瑞拉 的花莖比先前種過的百日草長。(拍攝時間:2018/11/13)
百日草 仙度瑞拉 的花莖明顯地比先前種過的百日草都長,所以也常被當成切花栽植。

播種後不到 2 個月的時間,百日草 仙度瑞拉 已開出滿滿的鮮豔花朵。(拍攝時間:2018/11/20)

百日草 仙度瑞拉系列,會開出單瓣及重瓣的花朵,除了鮮豔的舌瓣花,亮黃色的管狀花也很吸睛,每一次開花都讓園丁充滿了驚喜。

由側邊觀賞,可以更清楚的看到百日草 仙度瑞拉高挑的花莖及優異的抽花性。(拍攝時間:2018/11/14)
由植株側邊觀察,更可以看出百日草 仙度瑞拉跟其它品種的差異性。高挑及錯落有致的花莖,帶給頂樓花園豐富的層次感;優異的開花性,每個側枝頂端都是花苞。

「百日草 仙度瑞拉」花色大比拼!

百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅
百日草 仙度瑞拉系列 的顏色非常多,各個都鮮豔活潑。

例如上圖這款 百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅,它的花色是熱情洋溢的鮮紅色。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-亮橙
隔壁的 百日草 仙度瑞拉-亮橙 也不落人後,它的花色為活潑亮眼的橙黃色,彷彿在與 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅 較勁誰比較鮮豔。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅亮橙(拍攝時間:2018/11/26)
仙度瑞拉-鮮紅仙度瑞拉-亮橙 種在一起,紅紅火火交錯綻放,為頂樓花園帶來了滿滿熱情。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-蜜桃粉橙(拍攝時間:2018/11/26)
而一旁的 百日草 仙度瑞拉-蜜桃粉橙 就相對溫和許多。它的花色為粉嫩的蜜桃色,搭配花心的橙黃色調,具有清新優雅的氣質。

靜觀它那柔柔粉粉的花瓣,心靈都能被療癒到。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅(左);百日草 仙度瑞拉-淺粉紫(右)
需注意的是,栽培盆器的大小,會影響百日草植株的分枝性

園丁將 百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅(上圖左)定植於較寬大且深的盆器中,植株長得較高大,且分枝旺盛;

百日草 仙度瑞拉-淺粉紫(上圖右)定植於淺盆,植株較矮,生長勢就沒那麼好。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-亮橙(左);百日草 仙度瑞拉-鮮紅(右)
由側邊欣賞 百日草 仙度瑞拉 的植株,可以看到她們優異的分枝性,及比其它品種更細長的花莖。適合盆植欣賞,也適合當切花生產的品種。

百日草 仙度瑞拉-白(左);百日草 仙度瑞拉-淺粉紫(中);百日草 仙度瑞拉-亮橙(右)
不要錯過百日草 仙度瑞拉 的花莖線條及花朵背面,像這樣逆光欣賞又是另一種美!

栽種在不同盆裡的百日草 仙度瑞拉,剪下花朵聚在一起,更能比較出個花色的不同。
摘下各個花色的 百日草 仙度瑞拉,捧在手中,是不是更能看出各個花色的差異呢?

百日草 仙度瑞拉很適合剪下來瓶插欣賞。

百日草 仙度瑞拉的花朵剪下瓶插欣賞,除了能促進更多側花莖開放,也可以把歡樂活潑的氣息帶入室內。在百日草花朵盛放的季節,隨時都可以為自己(或別人)準備一把鮮豔的花束。

瓶插欣賞在室內的 百日草 仙度瑞拉,因為光影的不同,呈現不同的美!

如果你也與園丁一樣,等不及春天的到來,想在秋冬就擁有繽紛花園,那請千萬別錯過生長快速的 百日草 仙度瑞拉

【柔和月光】大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 │ 2019年12月桌布

 Cache   
大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃」花朵太有吸引力,不只園丁喜歡,黃色小蝴蝶也穿梭花間。

大波斯菊較少見到黃色系的花朵,所以一旦看到有黃色的大波斯菊品種上市,就一定要試種一下。

先前我們曾經試種過開黃花的品種-大波斯菊 黃色花園,它擁有柔和的鵝黃色花,看起來非常賞心悅目。

而 2018 年秋季,我們種下了「大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃」。這個品種花朵盛開時的花色與 大波斯菊 黃色花園 差異不大;但在花朵初綻放之時,花瓣上的黃彩則是更加明顯。

大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃(右)剛綻放時,花瓣上的黃彩比 大波斯菊 黃色花園(左)更明顯。

另外,大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 還有一個特點值得稱許,就是其優異的分枝性。跟同期播種的其它品種相比,她的分枝性拔得頭籌,這代表著花朵數也比其它品種多,輕鬆就能鋪成一個面。

一起來驗收 2018 年 大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的栽種成果吧:

大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 播種後 3 日就可見露土而出的小苗;2 週後深裂的羽狀本葉也冒出了。



很喜歡 大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 這時期的植株外觀,細緻的葉片密集地排列莖上,植株中心的小花苞開始成形!



播種後 1 個多月,大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 開出第一朵花,沒過幾日又有更多花開了。



此時期的 大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃,看起來株幅並不大。



大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的花朵中央,常可見細小的飾瓣,花型看起來更立體。



量一下 大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的花徑,大約有 7 公分左右。



有藍天當襯底,大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的花色更加迷人。



由這個角度看過去,大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的花朵鋪陳成一個面。



跟兩週前的開花量及株幅相比,大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 成長了好幾倍。



大波斯菊 桑多斯-黃 的分枝性很好,跟同期栽種的其它品種相比略勝一籌。

看著優秀的開花力、柔美的鵝黃色,你是不是也深陷桑多斯的魅力當中?

目前正值播種季,不如趁現在種下它,好迎接春天黃花的絢爛吧!

New Foxconn study demands Walker get in-depth scrutiny by 12/3 media panel

 Cache   
Given a stunning, independently-compiled expose about his crashing Foxconn  debacle - - 
- - what great timing by Wis Politics and the Milwaukee Press Club:
Former Governor Scott Walker to Speak at Newsmaker Luncheon
Walker will take questions from a panel of journalists and from the audience at the luncheon, set for 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Newsroom Pub, 137 E. Wells St. 
Questioners should pierce Walker's talking points and default to deflection and force him to explain why he put his re-election campaign above the public treasuries by routing unjustifiable and unsustainable subsidies and privileges to Foxconn, as a new, independent study lays out dispassionately:
The [George Mason University] Mercatus Center’s study, “The Economics of a Targeted Economic Development Subsidy,” looks at the economic case for and against economic development subsidies, focusing on Wisconsin’s pledge of $3.6 billion in incentives to Taiwan-based electronics manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group.
“The weight of economic theory suggests that these subsidies do not work and may even depress economic activity,” according to the study. “We show that under realistic scenarios the subsidy may depress state economic activity by tens of billions of dollars over the next 15 years.”
I have been following this story for 30 months and maintain a running archive about it all, here.
A Foxconn Fever primer
The new study is full of hared economic science and amazing/depressing tidbits which should be run past Walker. 

He'll never read it because he's free of accountability and prefers now to fly around the country making speeches and sampling airport food, but I urge the public and the luncheon's media guests and panelists to read it in full before the question period begins:

Some memorable excerpts from the study:
 A footnote in a chart shows the full cost of the $252.3 million in I-94 system highway expansion near Foxconn, and fast-tracked by Assembly Speaker Vos (my commentary on that, here) for the company's benefit actually exceeds $408 million, given interest added through years of borrowing: 
*Page 9:"...to pay off $252.4 million in general obligation bonds for roadway construction. This committment will cost $408.3 million over 20 years; $306.225 million is 15 years’ worth of payments."
*Page 21:"...from 2018 to 2032, Wisconsin GDP will total $6.3 trillion. The higher taxes to fund a Generation 10.5 plant subsidy will be associated with economic losses in the range of $5.7 billion to $34.3 billion over that time period. Higher taxes to fund the subsidy for a Generation 6 plant will be associated with economic losses in the range of $1.8 billion to $10.6 billion." 
*Page 27: In a discussion of "X-inefficiency," or 'slack.' "In the case of Foxconn, X-inefficiency sug-gests that Wisconsin’s subsidy will allow the com-pany to waste up to $231 million annually (on aver-age) in unnecessarily high production costs, as this is the size of the annual subsidy (see table 1)." 
*Page 32: "Targeted economic development subsidies follow a pattern that is common to many government transfers: those who benefit from these subsidies are few in number, whereas those who pay for them are numerous. Foxconn is again illustrative: just one firm stands to receive a $3.6 billion subsidy while some 16,000 other Wisconsin businesses must pay a corporate income tax that could be reduced by 22 percent in the absence of that subsidy."  
[From *Page 19Similarly, the state's flat fuel tax of $0.309 per gallon could be lowered by 18.92 percent down to $0.25 per gallon. Or, more broadly, overall tax revenue could be reduced by 1.07 percent.
And by the by - -
Page 8:"...a recent state audit has found that, on average, firms receiving Wisconsin subsidies create only about 34 percent of promised jobs. 


          

Study: Foxconn subsidies could smother billions in future WI development

 Cache   
Yet another study lays out the perils of the Walker-Fitzgerald-Vos multi-billion taxpayer soaking for the environmentally-damaging, small-town bulldozing, GOP-serving Foxconn boondoggle:
Study: Wisconsin's Foxconn deal could depress economic activity by "tens of billions of dollars"
Readers of this blog who have followed here 30 months of continual reporting and analysis will not be surprised by yet another independent accounting that shows how blatantly the public has been misled, as the new report notes: 
Using Wisconsin’s Foxconn subsidies as an example, we have shown that under most plausible scenarios, the taxes funding the subsidies will discourage more economic activity than will be encouraged by the subsidies themselves," according to the report. "In short, the net effect of targeted economic development subsidies is likely to be negative."
More, here.

[Updated continuously from June, 2017] This 360-post archive, tracks, explains and provides context for Wisconsin's public awards environmental favors, legal privileges and $4.5 billion in state and local funds to subsidize and assist Taiwan-based Foxconn. 
Call it a Scott Walker - - and failed campaign maneuver - - production.

From NBC Nightly News, 7/21/19

The archive also documents waivers of what been routine judicial and environmental reviews for a promised now- cancelled perhaps back-on-again-but-smaller?? Foxconn factory development that is still in line to receive a massive daily diversion of Lake Michigan water.

It wishes to end the island’s separate political existence and incorporate it into the People’s Republic of China under terms similar to those employed for Hong Kong — known as one country, two systems (1C2S) — and so place limits on Taiwan’s sovereignty and democracy. That…

"Latest TIP Report Will Surely Inspire And Motivate Port Operations Division Personnel Manning The Ports To Sustain Their Efforts In Fighting Human Trafficking." Bureau Of Immigration Port Operations Division Grifton Medina

 Cache   

INTRAMUROS, Manila—The management of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) exhorted its officers assigned at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and other ports to keep up their vigilance after it was announced that the Philippines retained its Tier 1 ranking in the US government’s human trafficking index for 2019. “I commend and congratulate the men and women of our port operations division (POD) who guard our ports day and night to ensure that countrymen are saved from the scourge of human trafficking,” Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said in a statement. The Philippines retained for the fourth consecutive year its Tier 1 ranking in the recently-released 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report of the US Department of State. Morente said that the rating is “a tribute to your hard work and dedication to your duties as gatekeepers of our country.”

Morente urged Bureau of Immigration personnel in the different ports to “remain vigilant as there is no sign that these human trafficking syndicates who prey on the poor, including minors, will stop their nefarious activities.” Bureau of Immigration Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina, for his part, said “the latest TIP report will surely inspire and motivate POD personnel manning the ports to sustain their efforts in fighting human trafficking.” Medina said there will be no letup in the bureau’s anti-trafficking campaign even as he reported that more than 10,000 travelers were stopped from leaving the country from January to April this year, mostly for having incomplete travel papers and questionable purpose in going abroad. A Tier 1 rating means that the Philippine government fully meets the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and has continually demonstrated serious and sustained efforts to combat human trafficking. The Philippines leads the ranking in East Asia and the Pacific, sharing the Tier 1 status with Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Other countries mentioned in the report who were given a Tier 1 rating are Australia, Canada, France, Netherlands, New Zealand and Spain. "The Tier 1 status was given to only 33 countries all over the world," said Morente. "We are proud to be a big part in the government's efforts against human trafficking. We will not stop protecting our fellow Filipinos from this threat. The result of this report is a reminder why we do what we do," he added. The report also acknowledged the BI’s accomplishment in deferring the departure of 24,753 passengers due to incomplete or missing travel documents or misrepresentation, referring for investigation 286 potential cases of suspected trafficking, identifying 286 potential victims of trafficking, and arresting nine suspected traffickers. BI stopped 199 foreign registered sex offenders from entering the country last year, the same

Apple viene criticata dal Ministro degli Esteri Ucraino

 Cache   
Apple viene criticata dal Ministro degli Esteri Ucraino Ieri, 27 novembre, è emerso che Apple ha modificato le regioni di Crimea e Sebastopoli, in modo che appaiano come territori russi quando si utilizzano le app Mappe e Meteo. La modifica riguarda solo gli utenti che vivono in Russia, analogamente ad altre precedenti modifiche regionali che Apple ha apportato a iOS, ad esempio, la sua decisione di rimuovere la bandiera di Taiwan dalla tastiera emoji di Hong Kong e Cina. L’annessione della Crimea da parte della Russia è un argomento estremamente controverso nella regione. La rivendicazione di proprietà della Russia non è riconosciuta dalla maggior parte della comunità internazionale, compresi l’UE e gli Stati Uniti. Il conflitto ha ucciso oltre 13.000 persone. Sulla scia della notizia, il ministro degli affari esteri ucraino ha dichiarato a Apple che “la politica globale non è il tuo lato forte“. Let me explain in your terms, @Apple. Imagine you're crying out that your design & ideas, years of work & piece of your heart are stolen by your worst enemy but then smb ignorant doesn't give a damn about your pain. That's how it feels when you call #Crimea a ???????? land. — Vadym Prystaiko (@VPrystaiko) November 27, 2019 Ha continuato dicendo: I telefoni sono ottimi prodotti. Seriamente, però, @Apple, per favore, attieniti all’alta tecnologia e all’intrattenimento. La politica globale non è il tuo lato forte. #CrimeaIsUkraine Apple ha avuto colloqui con la Russia per diversi mesi su ciò che il governo russo ha descritto come “imprecisione” nelle sue mappe. Il colosso tecnologico aveva inizialmente suggerito di poter etichettare il territorio come indefinito, né parte della Russia né dell’Ucraina. Ora sembra che Apple abbia rispettato le richieste della Russia di etichettare il territorio (almeno per gli utenti russi) come parte della Russia.

China overtakes US in number of diplomatic missions

 Cache   

For the first time, China has more diplomatic missions around the world than the United States, according to a study published Wednesday that offered fresh evidence of Beijing's global ambitions.

Australia's respected Lowy Institute reported that China's "rapid" rise up the rankings of diplomatic networks continued in 2019, boosted by the opening of diplomatic posts in countries that had previously recognised Taiwan.

"With 276 posts globally, China has for the first time surpassed the United States' network by three posts," authors of the biennial Global Diplomacy Index said.

In results likely to be read as a bellwether for geopolitical shifts, the think tank said US diplomacy had "entered a period of limbo", with President Donald Trump's budget cuts and troubles retaining career diplomats.

The United States opened no new posts and was forced to shutter its consulate in Saint Petersburg -- amid tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions following the poisoning of Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal in Britain.

But the US remained the most popular place to have an embassy or consulate, with the 61 countries covered having a total of 342 posts versus 256 foreign diplomatic missions in China.

At the same time, Beijing's footprint continued to grow, with new missions popping up in "Burkina Faso, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, the Gambia, and Sao Tome and Principe -– all former diplomatic friends of Taipei".

The index may be a blunt indicator of influence -- the number of buildings around the world offers little indication of how effective the diplomats who work there will be.

But the survey offers a snapshot of broader political trends.

Despite a pledge to develop a "Global Britain" without European Union membership, the UK has dropped to 11th in the rankings, below Italy, Spain and Brazil.

Meanwhile, Ireland and the Netherlands have boosted their diplomatic networks by more than half a dozen missions each "as part of their Brexit strategies" to take economic and diplomatic advantage of Britain's retreat.

Event Update For 2019-11-27

 Cache   






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




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

During a press conference, they said a series of smaller explosions occurred throughout the day and then a larger one in the afternoon launched a tower into the air with balls of fire. A mandatory evacuation has been issued for areas within a 4-mile radius of plant because of the potential for more explosions."

Quote: "Two explosions at a chemical plant in Texas put 60,000 people under evacuation orders Wednesday. The first blast, which blew out the windows and doors of nearby homes, injured three workers. The first explosion occurred just after 1 a.m. Wednesday. Officials said the blast could be felt up to 30 miles away, and that by sunrise, toxic plumes could be seen for miles."

Quote: "The explosion was even felt as far away as neighboring Louisiana."

Usuarios de smartphones serán obligados a escanear su rostro en China

 Cache   

Este domingo entró un vigor una nueva ley en China que obligará a las empresas de telecomunicaciones a registrar los parámetros biométricos faciales de todos los usuarios de cualquier teléfono móvil nuevo.

Esta medida incrementará control que posee el Estado sobre la población y su uso de Internet.

De acuerdo con las informaciones publicadas por el diario taiwanés Taiwan News, esta nueva disposición busca “proteger los derechos e intereses legítimos de los ciudadanos en el ciberespacio”.

Esta normativa se suma a la que obliga a conservar las fotografías tomadas cuando se cambie de teléfono móvil o se firme un nuevo contrato con las empresas de telecomunicaciones, lo que hace cada vez más difícil el uso de seudónimos en Internet sin que las autoridades conozcan la verdadera identidad de los usuarios.

Uno de los objetivos de esta nueva ley es disminuir los fraudes y delitos informáticos. Sin embargo, la medida ha sido criticada ya que atenta contra la privacidad de los ciudadanos.

Asimismo, con esta disposición, si hay una coincidencia entre la lectura facial de los lentes y la base de datos de las autoridades, los agentes de Policía reciben información de la persona si ésta está implicada en algún delito.

En China, las cámaras de vigilancia equipadas con tecnología de reconocimiento facial son ubicuas y se utilizan para todo: desde identificar y avergonzar a los transeúntes hasta detener el robo de papel higiénico. Muchas personas entran a su lugar de trabajo escaneando sus rostros, y estas cámaras se han utilizado para detectar a las personas que entran o salen de los campus, edificios residenciales y estaciones de metro.

El número de cámaras de televisión de circuito cerrado en uso en China se ha informado ampliamente en alrededor de 200 millones, y se prevé que este número aumente a 626 millones para 2020, según el periódico hongkonés South China Morning Post.

Un experto en inteligencia artificial china de la Universidad de Oxford, Jeffery Ding, ha alertado en declaraciones a Taiwan News de que las autoridades chinas utilizarán estos escáneres faciales para seguir a la población y vigilar comentarios y acciones.

Taichung Bike Week extended by a day, moves to September in 2020

 Cache   

TAICHUNG, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Taichung Bike Week, traditionally known as an OEM event where decisions are made and deals done, needs an extra day to finish its business.

Beginning next year, the 16th annual event will last four days and move from October to Sept. 22-25. The date change comes because of the development of the annual bike spec'ing schedule, according to Wheel Giant, which organizes TBW.

The new dates put it only three weeks after Eurobike, which takes place Sept. 2-5 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

"The dates are based on what the answers are when the organizing team asks exhibitors what they want for next year," said Steve Fenton, a show organizer. "Most of the people at TBW don't go to Eurobike. Although, the companies at TBW will be at both, the roles of the staffs are very different."

Wheel Giant said the additional day was in response to exhibitors wanting additional time to conclude all of their meetings. The date change also was done to attract more American brands, which traditionally visit Taiwan factories at the end of September to discuss specifications, according to Wheel Giant.

The Splendor, Evergreen and Tempus hotels again will host TBW. This past October, the three-day event had 407 exhibitors, with buyer and visitor attendance increasing 15% over 2018.

Taichung Bike Week 2019 took place Oct. 16-19.

Four mainland universities in Asia's top 10

 Cache   

031Four of the top 10 universities in Asia are, for the first time, from the Chinese mainland, according to the latest rankings from London-based QS Quacquarelli Symonds, which were released on Wednesday.
 

Tsinghua University ranked fourth in Asia, with Peking University fifth, Zhejiang University sixth and Fudan University seventh.
 

Mainland universities' QS Asia university rankings have improved steadily. There was only one mainland university in the top 10 when the rankings were first published in 2009, and just two in the top 20.
 

In the 2020 rankings, the four mainland universities in the top 10 are joined in the top 20 by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which ranked 17th.
 

The top 10 are: National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, the University of Hong Kong, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Zhejiang University, Fudan University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, and Chinese University of Hong Kong.
 

The only new face in the top 10 this year, Zhejiang University, was ranked 13th last year.

The rankings of the top three universities in Hong Kong have dropped slightly in the past year, with the University of Hong Kong slipping from second to third, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from seventh to eighth, and Chinese University of Hong Kong from ninth to 10th.
 

China has more universities in Asia's top 500 than any other country, with 165 — 118 from the Chinese mainland, 37 from Taiwan, eight from Hong Kong and two from Macao. India follows with 101, then Japan with 87 and South Korea 71.
 

The latest rankings feature 550 universities, including 68 new entrants. They are based on 10 different indicators, including academic and employer reputation.
 

Ten mainland universities are among the top 50 for academic reputation, an indicator based on a global survey of 94,672 academics.
 

Six mainland universities make the top 50 in the employer reputation measure, based on a global survey of 44,884 recruiters, with Peking University ranked first and Tsinghua University second.


          

China Furious As Trump Signs Hong Kong Bills

 Cache   

BEIJING (AP) — China reacted furiously to President Donald Trump’s signing of two bills on Hong Kong human rights and said the U.S. will bear the unspecified consequences.

A foreign ministry statement Thursday repeated heated condemnations of the laws and said China will counteract. It said all the people of Hong Kong and China oppose the move.

It’s still unclear, however, how China will respond exactly.

Trump signed the bills, which were approved by near unanimous consent in the House and Senate, even as he expressed some concerns about complicating the effort to work out a trade deal with China’s President Xi Jinping.

“I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong,” Trump said in a statement. “They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all.”

Congress approved the bills last week following months of unrest in the semi-autonomous Chinese city. Before Wednesday’s signing announcement, Trump would only commit to giving the measures a “hard look.”

China’s foreign ministry called the laws a “naked hegemonic action” that seriously interfered in Hong Kong and China’s internal affairs, violated international law and “fundamental norms of international relations.”

“The U.S. side ignored facts, turned black to white, and blatantly gave encouragement to violent criminals who smashed and burned, harmed innocent city residents, trampled on the rule of law and endangered social order,” the statement said.

The laws’ basic intent is to undermine Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability along with the “historical progress of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”

It called the measures “extremely evil in nature and dangerous in motive.”

“We advise the U.S. not to act incautiously, otherwise China will be required to counteract resolutely and all the consequences created by this will have to be borne by the U.S. side,” the statement said.

The two countries are currently locked in a trade war and have deep differences over China’s claims to the South China Sea and Taiwan, human rights issues and accusations of Chinese industrial espionage.

The first bill Trump signed mandates sanctions on Chinese and Hong Kong officials who carry out human rights abuses and requires an annual review of the favorable trade status that Washington grants Hong Kong.

Another bill prohibits export to Hong Kong police of certain nonlethal munitions, including tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, water cannons, stun guns and tasers.

The munitions bill was passed unanimously, while Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky was the sole House member to oppose the human rights bill.

Trump acknowledged last week that he was weighing the ramifications of signing the bill.

“Look, we have to stand with Hong Kong,” Trump said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” He continued: “But I’m also standing with President Xi. He’s a friend of mine. He’s an incredible guy.”

Democratic and Republican lawmakers applauded the signing of the bills. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., said it “finally sends a clear and unequivocal message to the people of Hong Kong: We are with you.”

Sen. Jim Risch, an Idaho Republican and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the bills are “an important step forward in holding the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its erosion of Hong Kong’s autonomy and its repression of fundamental human rights.”

Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., who sponsored the House human rights bill, said Xi “should understand that the U.S. is not kidding about human rights. Beating, torturing and jailing of democracy activists is wrong and this historic legislation lets China know that respecting fundamental human rights is paramount.”

Activists hailed Trump’s action.

“I know that many people in Hong Kong are happy that the U.S. government has passed a new bill,” said Figo Chan, a 23-year-old Hong Kong protester who was honored with the John McCain Prize for Leadership at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada last weekend.

“No one wants to die and no one wants to be hurt,” Chan said. “I hope that citizens of many different countries can in their own way fight for democracy.”

Actor and model Godfrey Gao, who grew up in B.C. and was an ambassador for Canadian tourism, collapsed and died while shooting a TV show on Wednesday. 

His agency JetStar Entertainment confirmed that Gao passed away in the “early hours of Nov. 27” in a statement posted to Weibo and cited by South China Morning Post and Women’s Wear Daily.

Gao, 35, was filming “Chase Me,” a reality TV show for China’s Zhejiang Television that features competitive sports, in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo, according to Apple Daily.

“Our beloved Godfrey collapsed while filming on set. Unfortunately following three hours of medical rescue efforts, he left us,” said JetStar’s statement. It added that his family “rushed to the scene.”

Gao was born in Taipei, but he grew up in North Vancouver, B.C. and graduated from Capilano University.

In 2011, he became the first Asian male model for luxury brand Louis Vuitton. A few years later, he appeared in Hollywood movies “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” and “The Jade Pendant,” followed by starring roles in several Chinese and Taiwanese blockbusters.

In 2015, he became an ambassador for the Canadian Tourism Commission, hosting a a travel program aimed at drumming up interest among visitors from China.

“I grew up in B.C. It is one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada. Vancouver is so multicultural and that’s one of the things I enjoyed most while growing up in Vancouver, as you get everything from culture to cuisine,” Gao told HuffPost B.C. in 2016.

Principálem loutkového divadla v Americe

 Cache   
Autor článku: 
Irena Koušková

Emigroval jste do USA v roce 1979 ve svých 29 letech. Co jste dělal v Čechách předtím, než jste odešel za hranice?

Vždy mě to táhlo k divadlu, na FFUK jsem ale studoval francouzštinu a filozofii. Pak jsem zradil svou první lásku, francouzštinu, a zamiloval se do angličtiny, do Shakespeara. V roce 1972 jsem se dostal do Anglie (vyprosil a vyběhal jsem si „devizový příslib“, 50 tolarů na 10 dní a potřebných půl tuctu papírů na „výjezdní doložku“ na neuvěřitelné dva týdny). Pak jsem v Londýně spal v Hyde Parku se stovkami hipísáků a chodil dvakrát denně do divadla…

Nakonec jsem se vrátil do Čech, abych nepoškodil rodinu, i když mě lákalo a lákali jiní tam zůstat. Jenže jsem tu cestu stopem o pár dní přetáhl a sebrali mi pas, takže jsem pak pět let nemohl ani do NDR. 

Na Lidové škole umění jsem při univerzitě studoval herectví u paní Jiřiny Steimarové a ta mi po promoci (diplomka o franko-kanadské literatuře) zařídila audičky (v uměleckém slangu zkušební předehrávky pro případné využití v repertoáru - pozn. red.) v Šumperku, kde jsem pak strávil jeden rok jako herec s plným platem. Jinak jsem byl vždy na volné noze. Zažil jsem tam krásu sezóny v repertoárovém divadle, to je něco, co v USA neexistuje. Jenomže politická situace v umění pro mě byla nepřijatelná. Jen tak tak jsem unikl propagandistickým hrám, SSM, nebo podpisu Anticharty. Volnější už to bylo v Polsku, kam jsem se jezdil nadýchat čerstvého vzduchu. Taky jsem, víceméně ilegálně, dělal asistenta režie u Adama Hanuszkiewicze v Teatru Narodowym na Racinově Faidře.

Moje cesta do Ameriky v roce 1978-79 vedla přes Itálii a Francii. Dostal jsem výjezdní doložku, abych mohl konzultovat s autorem Primo Levim překlad knihy Periodická tabulka. Setkal jsem se s ním, konzultoval, ale řekl jsem mu, že překlad zřejmě nevyjde, protože já zůstanu na západě, což byl podle komunistických zákonů zločin. On na to řekl, „Cokoli je dobré pro vás, už to vyšlo ve více než třiceti překladech, tak o jeden víc nebo míň...“

 

Dělal jste loutkové divadlo už doma v Česku nebo až ve Státech?

Kromě rodinného loutkového divadla mé maminky a jejích sourozenců z 20. let, s nímž jsem si hrál se svým bratrem a sestrou, jsem nic o loutkách nevěděl. Myslel jsem, že loutky nemají budoucnost, že už jsou zastaralé. Ale někdy v roce ´75 jsem inscenoval s tím maminčiným dětským divadélkem pětiminutovou parodii na pimprlovou komedii, při které jsem vlastně objevil, že loutky skýtají spoustu možností. A pak přišel blesk z čistého nebe, objev Divadla Drak, které okouzlilo pražskou uměleckou smetánku. Já k ní nepatřil, ale nějak jsem se k tomu nachomejtl. Kombinace loutek a živých herců mě tehdy v 70. letech uchvátila a inspiruje mě dodnes.

 

Jak jste se dostal k loutkovému divadlu v Americe?

Do Ameriky jsem se bál. Nečekali na mě sice při přistání gangsteři, které jsem si představoval podle detektivek a zřejmě i komunistické propagandy, ale šokovala mě tehdy špína na letišti a odpadky v ulicích. Ale dalo se tam dělat divadlo i s přízvukem, což by v Anglii asi moc nešlo. A tak jsem se od poslíčka na kole přes taxikáře v New Yorku dostal přece jen k divadlu. Začal jsem jako technikář ve slavném Roundabout Theatre, tenkrát ještě „jen“ off-Broadway na 23. ulici (jsou stále ještě nekomerční, ale dnes mají pět scén, z toho tři na Broadwayi).  Byly to podstatně menší peníze než za volantem taxíku, (což taky nebyl žádný zlatý důl). Ale vydělával jsem si divadlem! Už brzy po příjezdu jsem s překvapením zjistil, že tu herci, profesionální, vystudovaní, talentovaní herci, dělají své „showcase“ často zadarmo, nebo do toho i vrazí vlastní tolary!, aby na sebe upozornili, což je běžná praxe. Taky jsem četl anglicky tradiční české pohádky s doprovodem jazzové nebo rockové muziky, většinou pro dospělé, což jsem trochu dělal už v Čechách.

Po dvou malých rolích v Jindřichu IV. (zadarmiko) a Richardovi II. (jeden tolar US za představení!) jsem se pak dostal k avantgardní produkci Goethova Fausta II. V divadle Patchoworks přepisovali a předělávali na modernu ten nesmrtelný a nehratelný druhý díl. Zmínil jsem se režisérce o tradici loutkového Fausta, a ona na to, ať si vyberu scénu, přepíšu ji a udělám s loutkami. Loutky mi posílali z Čech, první byl čert, kterého maminka vymámila od sběratele pana Vorla (za hezkejch pár tisíc), dostal oficiální „výjezdní doložku“. Ještě má od strážců hranic razítko na kopytě a na chodidle. Projekt Faust skončil a z nečinnosti by čert začal dělat neplechu, tak jsem ho začal montovat do těch pohádek. Přišla mi pak ještě od sestry čarodějnice a princezna.

Jednou jsme s těmi třemi loutkami vystupovali v kostele Jana Husa v srdci bývalé české a slovenské čtvrti na Manhattanu, na 74. ulici. No a já v tom českém newyorském kostele udělal objev, který pak dal jasný směr mému dalšímu životu v Americe…

Jedna z posledních českých babiček té presbyteriánské farnosti byla vrátná, paní Lučártová (Luchart), a ta mi řekla, že se tu hrávala loutková představení. Vyptával jsem se na osud loutek, až mě pustila podívat se na půdu − a tam jsem našel několik desítek starodávných loutek, s nimiž kdysi hrávali krajané divadlo, některým kouskům bylo i přes dvě stě let… Čekaly tu vlastně na mě schované na půdě přes padesát roků.

Dlužno říci, že krajané tady měli svou enklávu v pár tuctů ulic kolem 2. Avenue, říkalo se tomu Little Bohemia, a provozovali zde také loutkové divadlo, takže jsem navázal na dávnou tradici. Zajímavé je, že základ české komunity tvořili dělníci z tabákoven, např. z Čáslavi nebo Kutné Hory, kteří tu balili doutníky. Mezi Kutnohorci byli i řezbáři svatých, pro něž výroba loutek byla něco jako melouch.

 

A to už jste přemýšlel o vlastním divadle?

Ještě jsem pár let dělal v černém divadla Ta Fantastika, taková zajížďka, ale v roce 1990 jsem s Honzou „Čágem“ Ungrem (také se mihnul a pak vyhnul divadlu Ta Fa) spoluzaložil Československo-americké loutkové divadlo, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre (CAMT) a stal se ze mě loutkoherec, ale také režisér, překladatel i autor, technikář, švadlenka marionetových kostýmů, takový americký Kopecký (já bych se tak neodvážil nazvat, ale několik krajanů mě tak oslovilo, tak to přijímám). Začali jsme samozřejmě Faustem, což byla vlastně naše jediná tradičně zahraná komedie. Adaptovaných i původních her je už více než dva tucty, odehráli jsme stovky představení, vystupovali ve 34 státech USA a na mezinárodních festivalech ve Francii, Pákistánu, Turecku, Polsku nebo Koreji. Za vším je ale nejen vlastní kumšt, ale také hodiny strávené vyřizováním administrativy, techniky a sháněním grantů.

 

Jak vzpomínáte na 80. léta strávená s Ta Fantastikou Petra Kratochvíla?

Měl jsem z Čech úžasnou vzpomínku na Petrovu roli v Ypsilonce, kde ho jako Michelangelova Davida sochal nezapomenutelně Vašek Helšus. Sešel jsem se s Petrem v New Yorku jen tak na pokec, ale ukázalo se, že je to vlastně jakási přijímací zkouška: Petrovi se rozešel soubor a hledal nové „černé vzadu,“ ty neviditelné manipulátory létajících rekvizit, kteří vytvářejí kouzlo černého divadla. Mluvili jsme pár minut a nabídl mi vstup do souboru. Ještě s neúplným obsazením jsme přezkušovali představení „Snu,“ protože se mělo jet za tři měsíce na festival „Sigma“ v Bordeaux. Poprvé jsem tak dostal v Americe zaplaceno za „hraní divadla.“ I když to byl honorář jen za ten týden ve Francii, a za tři měsíce zkoušek nic, byl to obrovský skok nazpátek nebo vpřed?, k obživě divadlem. A protože to bylo představení beze slov, neměli ani viditelní herci, Petr a Milada Kratochvílovi vpředu, a my neviditelní vzadu, žádný problém s přízvukem. 

Všichni měli samozřejmě ještě různá zaměstnání, Petr a Milada dvě nebo tři, dělali v restauraci Ruč, v obchodě s cukrovinkami na Nádraží střed (Grand Central), Petr byl liftboy v Národní budově, kde ještě fungovalo slavné divadlo Manhattan Theatre Club. Po nocích spolu vyráběli rekvizity a Milada šila kostýmy, barevné i černé sametové, a sametové pozadí a šály do „černé díry“, kde jsme v temnotách my nováčci klopýtali jeden přes druhého. Zkoušelo se v maličké klubovně Bohemian Hall v Astorii, která stojí uprostřed poslední velké zahradní pivnice v New Yorku.

Dalšími členy byli kromě mě a mé partnerky Bonnie Stein také Lenka Pichlíková, Consuela Morávková, Honza „Čágo“ Unger (kdysi jsem se mu obdivoval, když zazářil jako klaun v Cirkusu Alfred Ctibora Turby), Libor Hon (později se přidala jeho žena Alexandra), Richard Balous, Zdeněk a Jitka Lichtág-Loveček a Pavel „Kefalín“ Berka, osvětlovač Jarda Hruška a jeho žena Tracy. Na někoho jsem asi zapomněl, bylo nás 12, někdy 13, jindy 11, počty i tváře se časem měnily.

Po úspěchu v Bordeaux jsme příští rok jeli na dvouměsíční evropský zájezd. Začal v Monaku v Divadle Princezny Grace (bývalé filmové hvězdy Grace Kelly), kde bylo za branou pro kulisy slyšet šumění příboje. Pokračovali jsme přes Francii, Belgii a Lucembursko do Itálie a Švýcarska. A po té slávě se všichni, včetně Petra a Milady, vrátili nazpátek k poslíčkování, za pulty lahůdkářství nebo číšničení. Milada Kratochvílová (dnes už opět Janderová) držela Petra i celé divadlo úžasným způsobem, a já začal pomáhat s produkcí. Když nám ve zkušebně vypnula elektrárna Con Edison nejdřív topení a pak elektřinu, Milada se s Petrem a většinou souboru přestěhovali za teplem na Floridu. Já dostal od nakladatele zálohu na svou verzi sedmi českých pohádek, „Twelve Iron Sandals“, tak jsem si řekl, na půl roku mi to vydrží, koupil jsem si odvážně první osobní kompjůtr, Kaypro II X, a odjel na Floridu taky. Stal jsem se pak Petrovým a Miladiným parťákem, a příštích pět let jsem pendloval mezi Floridou a New Yorkem. 

Naučil jsem se tu dělat veškerou administrativu, psal jsem žádosti o granty (bez velkého úspěchu) a spolu s Bonnie jsme zorganizovali zájezdy do Hong Kongu, Singapuru, Malajsie a na Taiwan a nějaká představení na Floridě, v Kalifornii a jinde po Americe. Brzy po příjezdu na Floridu jsem dostal životní šanci, roli hlavního padoucha v akčním filmu Chucka Norrise: „Invasion USA“. Byly to obrovské peníze a obrovská sranda, měl jsem skákat se samopalem nad hlavou z helikoptery do příboje coby velitel diverzní jednotky Varšavského paktu. A byl jsem ten poslední padouch, ten co dlouho uniká, přežije až do konce filmu... Pak mě měl hrdina Chuck klasicky odstřelit nějakým tím raketometem a mé tělo mělo letět v plamenech skrz okna vládní budovy v Atlantě. Natáčení se odkládalo, až mělo začít ve stejný den, kdy nám začínal jeden z pouhých dvou zájezdů roku, pět představení důležitého festivalu v Jižní Karolíně. Ta Fantastika byla můj vlastní soubor, záviselo na mně dvanáct lidí, kteří přes dva měsíce dřeli na zkouškách. A tak tu prčovní roli hlavního padoucha dostal blonďatej Rus, kterého jsem na audičkách přehrál.

Ta Fa byl můj soubor, jenomže umělecky jsme si naše sny neplnili, pořád to byla ta zastaralá šantánová estetika, se kterou začínal Srnec v 60. letech. Tak jsem se v roce ´89 s těžkým srdcem Miladě a Petrovi omluvil a černého divadla nechal. Vzdal jsem se svého třetinového podílu ještě včas, než do toho přišly opravdové peníze, a šel třít loutkářskou bídu. Od milionů už by pak bylo těžší odejít. Ale byla to úžasná škola pro další práci v „chudém divadle“.

 

Jaký je váš loutkový repertoár v „chudém divadle“? Klasické české pohádky prý potřebovaly další vysvětlení kontextu… O co šlo, jak to vypadalo?

Třeba Vodník se musí vysvětlit, protože neexistuje (nebo o něm nevědí) v Americe. Coby Vodní duch (Water Spirit nebo Water Goblin) byl ale velice známý a blízký indiánskému publiku, pro něž jsem hrál na pár tuctu rezervací v Idahu, Dakotách, Arizoně a Novém Mexiku. Hrát na střední škole pro dospěláky, pro pět set apačskejch válečníků, kteří nehnou ani svalem na tváři, je skutečnej zážitek. Na jihozápadě v „bible belt“ se zase bojí pustit do školy ďábla, neznají komického folklorního čerta. 

V pohádkovém představení spojuji tři klasické pohádky povídáním o původu loutek, o českých, slovenských a rusínských přistěhovalcích. Málo dětí, ale i dospělých mělo ponětí, kde bylo Československo, na otázku z pódia odpovídali v Rusku, v Pensylvánii, v Africe. A najednou jsem po roce 1993 musel přidat vysvětlení, že země odkud já i loutky pocházíme, už neexistuje. Golema jsme zase udělali jako taneční představení, současný tanec. Mísíme často pohybové divadlo, marionety, nalezené předměty, stínové loutky, a vždycky se snažíme, abychom měli živou hudbu. Jako ukázku češtiny, a aby věděli jak správně vyslovit mé jméno s tím unikátním českým „ř“, učím diváky opakovat „třista třiatřicet stříbrných křepelek...“.  Většinou se smějí, ale jednou nějaké dítě vykřiklo „Ty jsi se zbláznil...“. 

Jak už jsem zmínil dříve, ještě v Čechách jsem vyprávěl pohádky pro (mladé) dospělé, s jazzovou nebo i rockovou hudbou. To bývaly méně známé texty. Také má vlastní podvratná pohádka o „dobrém dědečkovi,“ který nejmladšímu laskavému - tedy hloupému - bratrovi nakonec za odměnu utrhne hlavu, patří do tohoto soudku. Ale v Americe, kde neznají žádné z těch pohádek, s nimiž jsme jako děti vyrůstali, jsem se musel vrátit k Němcové a k Erbenovi. A je to krása, jak taková „Sůl nad zlato“ unese diváky všech věků.

 

Pro koho v New Yorku hrajete, kdo jsou vaši diváci?

Máme publikum, které si nás oblíbilo a vrací se, anebo najednou přijdou úplně noví diváci, jako teď na posledního Fausta, který byl vyprodaný v NYC i v Bostonu. Hrajeme pro všeobecné americké publikum, většinou pro dospělé. Pomohli jsme změnit představu, že loutkové divadlo je jen pro malé děti. Jindy zas rodiče přivedou tříleté špunty i na Hamleta. Lidé českého a slovenského původu tvoří jen malou část diváků. Přijdou ale Rusové, Židé, Poláci, Indové, Japonci, Číňani, národnosti, které mají loutkovou tradici. 

 

Jak děláte propagaci?

Pohlednice, letáky, plakáty, sociální sítě, najímáme tiskového agenta, který rozesílá oznámení do médií. Někdy se mu podaří dostat hodně článků a kritik, někdy ne, nedá se to vysvětlit. Ale jak říká, jediné noviny, které se opravdu počítají a přitáhnou diváky, jsou New York Times. A dobrá pověst od úst k ústům.

 

S jakými loutkami hrajete?

Kromě těch historických si loutky necháváme vyřezat v Čechách. Nejdřív jsme hlavně dělali kopie starých loutek z kostela Jana Husa, těch nejkřehčích. Od pana Václava Krčála a pak „trikového“ dupáka od Ivana Antoše. Stavěli jsme je vždy též o něco větší, neb hrajeme někdy pro veliké publikum − teda hlavně moje sólové představení pohádek, které jsem hrál s šedesáticentimentrovými marionetami až pro 900 dětí v tělocvičně ve Phoenixu (naprostý zločin). Tak to dělávali staří loutkáři, když si navzájem stále většími loutkami konkurovali. Některé mnou nalezené loutky byly kdysi vyrobené v Čechách, různými řezbáři u firem Muenzeberg nebo Modrý a Žanda. Ty nejstarší zhotovil zřejmě Mikuláš Sychrovský z Mirotic, jihočeský řezbář, který vyrobil mnoho loutek pro několik generací Kopeckých i jiných slavných rodin. Jeden druh mezi nimi měl ovšem výrazný naivní styl s plochými tvářemi, což je neobvyklé, a usuzuji z toho, že je dělal nějaký amatér v Americe. Profesionál vyřeže výrazné a plastické rysy − někdy ty velké nosy působí až antisemitsky (a někdy skutečně rasistické byly).

Dále používáme dvaceticentimetrové rodinné loutky od Miloše Kasala z Ruzyně, takové, s jakými si hrála v dětství moje maminka a které jsem po ní zdědil já se svými sourozenci (tyto loutky taky po představení prodáváme, což je důležitý zdroj příjmů souboru). Ty prťavé hračky někdy vystupují zároveň s většími loutkami − stejná postava je hrána paralelně loutkami dvou velikostí i živáčkem. 

První kompletní soubor na nové představení nám udělal Kuba Krejčí na Jenovéfu. Jeho loutky si pak zahrály v mnoha kusech, a dokonce zatančily ve sboru v Golemovi. Hlavní postavy udělal Kuba 120 cm velké a tančily většinou na kolečkách, „uvězněné“ seděly do půl těla v takové kleci, která představovala vězení pražského ghetta, stejně jako výprava scénografa Roman Hladíka: stylizované pětimetrové věže pražských kostelů točící se kolem mnohem menší Staronové synagogy. Loutky z Jenovéfy pak byly i v Hamletovi − zloduch Golo si zahrál Hamleta, zatímco kuchař Drago dostal životní příležitost ztvárnit krále Klaudia.    

 

Kde všude jste v New Yorku hrál?

Začali jsme první verzí Fausta v roce 1990 v kostele Jana Husa na 74. ulici, když tam, na Upper East Side, ještě byly nějaké zbytky české komunity. Pak jsme hráli v Národní budově, která už byla zdevastovaná a téměř nepoužívaná, a kromě nějakých krajanských schůzí jednou za měsíc zela prázdnotou. Pro nás to byl výborný prostor, dělali jsme představení, která začala v přízemí − bývaly tam tři scény slavného divadla Manhattan Theatre Club, kde hrál, vedle množství hvězd nebo budoucích hvězd, jako třeba Liza Minelli, taky Voskovec. Uprostřed scény pak loutky proskočily klasickým marionetovým proscéniem a vydaly se, následovány diváky, po budově. Poslední dějství se odehrálo v katastrofálních ruinách tanečního sálu, kde nad hromadami opadané omítky kolem polorozpadlého nápisu „Národ sobě“ létali holubi. 

S Golemem s klezmerovou hudbou Franka Londona jsme se v roce 1997 poprvé dostali do slavného divadla La MaMa na Východní 4. ulici, založeného legendární Ellen Stewart, úžasnou černoškou, která byla skutečná MáMa pro nás, i mnoho později slavných autorů, režisérů a herců. Byla to někdy máma princmetálová. Teď už jsme v La MaMě jedním z domácích, nebo snad „rodinných“ souborů. Kromě toho hrajeme v Theater for the New City na První Avenue a 10. ulici, taky v „East Village“ („Východní vesnice“ je takové nóbl jméno, které dali realitní agenti tomu bývalému vypálenému slumu a podařilo se jim z něj udělat módní záležitost). 

 

V New Yorku existuje údajně jediné loutkové divadlo provozované městem, což je pro kapitalistickou Ameriku velice nezvyklé…

Swedish Cottage v Centrálním parku je marionetové divadlo, většinou pro děti, provozované městem a nadací pro zvelebování parků. Moc hezké divadlo, původně tedy švédská chalupa přivezená na světovou výstavu v roce 1947. Loutkoherci mají pracovní zařazení „Park Ranger“. Bohužel používají nahrané dialogy, někdy pořízené před dvaceti, třiceti i více lety, a loutkáři jen tahají za provázky marionet vyrobených pro stejně staré inscenace. Párkrát jsem tam zaskakoval na jednu zkoušku, nebo mi slíbili zkoušku, ale nezbyl čas. Jen jsem si předem poslechl tu nahrávku. Hercův zlý sen: na jevišti bez znalosti textu, narážek, a bez zkoušek.

 

Jaký zvuk má podle vás české loutkářství ve světě?

Mezi loutkáři a znalci má české loutkářství obrovský zvuk. I lidi, kteří nikdy české loutky nepoznali, často vědí, že je v Čechách silná tradice loutkového divadla i animace. Případně byli v Čechách a viděli loutky prodávané v obchodech pro turisty na každém rohu, nebo zhlédli jednu z komerčních produkcí, která se v Praze hraje už třicet let. 

 

Na čem právě pracujete?

Obnovujeme v novém obsazení a samozřejmě trochu aktualizované podobě "A Christmas Carol, Oy! Hanukkah, Merry Kwanzaa". Dickensova „Vánoční koleda“ se z nějakého důvodu stala nerozlučnou součástí Vánoc v Americe, existuje spousta divadelních i filmových adaptací. My jsme tam přidali tu Chanukku a svátek Kwanzaa, což je (v roce 1966) uměle vyrobená protiváha Vánoc využívající afrických tradic, a zpíváme k tomu české, anglické, hebrejské a svahilské písně. Možná ještě tento rok přidáme španělskou a slovenskou - do souboru čerstvě nastupuje výborná slovenská herečka Katarina Vizina. Kromě ní bude v novém obsazení hrát a česky zpívat také Valois Mickens (ta je hrdá na své africké, keltské a indiánské geny), jedna z dlouholetých členek domácího souboru La MaMa, která už vystoupila v několika našich inscenacích. Nějaký kritik o našem představení napsal: „Je to stále ten původní Dickens, ale jako by příběh převyprávěla česká babička.“

Odehraje se to v Theater for the New City, a také na zájezdě do slavného muzea Detroit Institute of Arts.  V dubnu 2020 jedou české pohádky do Trinidadu − ale ne do teplíčka na pláž – do Trinidadu v Coloradu, městečku na hranicích Nového Mexika. A asi z toho udělám měsíční zájezd nahoru podél Skalistých hor, taková trochu nostalgická vzpomínka na tři a půl měsíce na cestách od Idaha po Arizonu. Tenkrát před třiceti lety jsem odřídil přes 15 tisíc mil a odehrál 151 představení, tj. třináct a půl každý týden. To už si odpustím, bude to tak tucet představení, ale možná zajedu až do Alberty v Kanadě.

Poslední dva roky už pomaloučku polehoučku připravujeme pro naši domácí scénu v divadle La MaMa „Ptáky“ podle Aristofana a Farida ud-Din Attar. Výprava Petr Sís, který podle té perské epické básně z dvanáctého století vytvořil překrásnou knihu. Hudba Michael Kocáb, který skládal, hrál a zpíval ještě jako konzervatorista pro mou první inscenaci v Rubínu v Praze. Bylo to také první veřejné vystoupení Pražského výběru, ještě jazzového, doprovázeli půlhodinovou báseň v próze Apollinairova současníka Blaisa Cendrarse. Tak se tím vlastně uzavře kruh.

Díváme se na videozáznamy statisícových hejn ptáků, kteří jako by tančili po nebi, a snažíme se vymyslet, jak to vytvořit na jevišti, ne promítáním, ale divadelní magií.

Aktuálně k rozhovoru dodáváme, že u příležitosti oslav 100. výročí vzniku republiky se v Národním informačním a poradenském středisku pro kulturu, NIPOS, zrodila myšlenka na zmapování krajanského ochotnického divadla v USA. Za použití mnoha pramenů a kontaktů s krajany v USA DNES vychází publikace "150 let krajanského ochotnického divadla v USA, 1868 - 2018". Jedna z kapitol se věnuje také profesionálnímu loutkovému divadlu v New Yorku, jehož principálem je právě Vít Hořejš. Vydává NIPOS, autor Mgr. Jiří Němec. Další informace brzy na stránkách www.nipos.cz nebo www.amaterskedivadlo.cz


          

New opening - Craft Company: Akebonobashi

 Cache   
This neighborhood craft-beer bar serves mostly imported beers on draft from twelve taps, along with a "bistro-style" food menu of small dishes. Beers are relatively exotic and diverse - on a recent visit we found brews from Edge Brewing (Spain), Saltaire, Anarchy Brew and Twisted Barrel Ale (UK), Malheur (Belgium) and Georgetown Brewing (Washington State). They're just a bit higher-priced than average (medium-size glasses are Y1100-1200), but there's no table charge.

Seating is on high stools at three long communal tables (turning into six smaller tables at lunch), and there's ample standing room along the room's wrap-around counter. At lunchtime they serve voluminous plates featuring Lu Rou Fan (Taiwanese minced pork and rice) paired with chicken karaage or Hayashi Rice, starting at Y1000.
