Mujeres trans y policías se enfrentan en torneo de fútbol en México   

Cache   

Naucalpan (México), 18 ene (EFE).- Mujeres trans y policías se enfrentaron este sábado en un torneo de fútbol organizado para reivindicar la diversidad sexual frente a la discriminación en el municipio de Naucalpan de Juárez, a las afueras de Ciudad de México, una de las poblaciones más inseguras del centro del país.

En el torneo, organizado por la Asociación Alas del Destino y el Ayuntamiento de Naucalpan, participaron el equipo de mujeres Trans Mariposas y el de hombres homosexuales Gay Boys, así como un equipo masculino y otro femenino de policías locales.

Trans Mariposas, el equipo integrado por mujeres trans amantes del fútbol, lleva más de cuatro años entrenando y jugando en una pequeña liga de barrio pero esta fue la primera vez que se enfrentó a las fuerzas de seguridad en un partido.

Poco antes de comenzar el encuentro, la jugadora Virys Nice Colucci, que trabaja de estilista, explicó a Efe que 'en muchos casos la seguridad ha reprimido muy feo a la gente trans', por lo que con el partido se buscó 'sensibilizar' a los agentes policiales.

'No tenemos nada contra ellos ni ellos contra nosotros. Vamos a fomentar el deporte y la unión para no ser discriminados', expresó Colucci, quien añadió: 'Debemos estar unidos para entendernos'.

Las mujeres trans, que se conocen gracias a eventos y fiestas de la comunidad LGBT, iban uniformadas con camisetas blancas, el nombre de la jugadora, el dorsal y el escudo con los colores azul, rosa y blanco de la bandera trasn.

El torneo transcurrió con total normalidad, en un ambiente distendido en el centro deportivo 'La curva', ubicado en una barriada de la ciudad.

El equipo policial masculino se erigió como el ganador del torneo dedicado a la inclusión social, seguido de Trans Mariposas, las mujeres policías y, finalmente, los Gay Boys.

De acuerdo con la organización defensora de la diversidad sexual Alas del Destino, Naucalpan cuenta con cerca de 12.000 personas integrantes de la comunidad LGBT (lesbianas, gays bisexuales y transexuales).

Esta asociación, que trabaja en labores de inclusión en el municipio, definió en un comunicado el torneo como un 'evento histórico que marca un hito en América Latina en el avance de los derechos de la comunidad' y aplaudió que la alcaldía de Naucalpan es 'pionera nacional en este tema'.

Una quincena de mujeres trans encabezadas por la activista Kenya Cuevas bloquearon el pasado lunes una de las arterias principales de Ciudad de México con un ataúd para exigir justicia por el asesinato en 2016 de una compañera y trabajadora sexual.

Según el más reciente informe de la ONG Letra S, durante el sexenio de Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018) se registraron al menos 473 crímenes de odio en el país.

El 55 % de los asesinatos perpetrados durante la etapa Peña Nieto fueron contra mujeres transexuales y el 40 % contra hombres homosexuales. EFE


          

Cuba afirma se gestiona 'sin descanso' regreso de médicos raptados en Kenia   

Cache   

La Habana, 17 ene (EFE).- El presidente cubano, Miguel Díaz-Canel, aseguró este viernes a la familia del doctor Assel Herrera, uno de los dos médicos secuestrados en Kenia hace nueve meses por supuestos miembros del grupo yihadista somalí Al Shabab, que se hacen gestiones 'sin descanso' para su liberación.

Díaz-Canel afirmó que se trabaja de forma coordinada con las autoridades de Kenia para lograr el regreso a la isla de Herrera, especialista de Medicina General Integral, y de su colega, Landy Rodríguez, según una reseña publicada en la página web de la Presidencia de Cuba.

Los médicos cubanos fueron raptados el pasado 12 de abril cerca de la frontera con Somalia, cuando se dirigían a trabajar en el hospital de la ciudad keniana de Mandera acompañados de escoltas armados.

El vehículo en el que viajaban los doctores cubanos fue interceptado y tras un tiroteo en el que murió uno de sus custodios ambos quedaron en poder de sus captores que el Gobierno de Nairobi cree pertenecen a Al Shabab, grupo somalí que se adhirió a Al Qaeda en 2012 y suele hacer incursiones en Kenia para perpetrar ataques en represalia por la presencia de su Ejército en Somalia.

Durante un encuentro con familiares del médico Assel Herrera en la provincia oriental Las Tunas -donde residen- el presidente Díaz-Canel les reiteró el 'total respaldo' de su Gobierno en medio del proceso 'lamentablemente largo y complejo' para conseguir su retorno al país caribeño.

El gobernante se interesó por conocer detalles de la salud de los padres, los estudios universitarios de la hija del médico secuestrado, el apoyo que reciben de sus vecinos, relata el reporte publicado junto a una foto.

A finales de diciembre de 2019, Díaz-Canel informó a través de su cuenta oficial de Twitter que había conversado con sus homólogos de Kenia, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, y de Somalia, Abdullahi Mohamed sobre las gestiones que se realizan para liberar a los dos médicos cubanos.

Meses atrás, el ministro cubano de Salud Pública, José Ángel Portal, había indicado que se realizan 'todas las acciones posibles' para el retorno de Herrera y Rodríguez, aunque advirtió de que el proceso es 'complejo' y que requiere de 'tiempo y discreción para su éxito'.

El pasado 12 de enero, el portavoz del Ejecutivo keniano, Cyrus Oguna, dijo a EFE que saben con certeza que los médicos cubanos 'están bien, pero el plan para garantizar su rescate continúa'.

'Queremos liberarlos vivos para que puedan reunirse con sus familias', señaló Oguna.

Los especialistas secuestrados forman parte de una brigada de 101 profesionales cubanos que incluye a radiólogos, cirujanos, ortopédicos, neurólogos y nefrólogos llegados en 2018 a Kenia por un acuerdo bilateral para mejorar el acceso a servicios sanitarios en esa nación de África Oriental.

Después del suceso, las autoridades kenianas reubicaron en zonas más seguras a los médicos cubanos desplegados en condados de Kenia limítrofes con Somalia, donde Al Shabab busca instaurar un Estado islámico de corte wahabí (ultraconservador). EFE

UKCI commits up to GBP30m to provide green affordable housing in Kenya

UKCI commits up to GBP30m to provide green affordable housing in Kenya

UK Climate Investments (UKCI) intends to invest up to GBP30 million (USD39 million) to finance the construction of affordable green housing in Kenya.

The prospective commitment, which will be delivered through a locally managed strategy targeting USD80-250 million of investor commitments, is intended to sponsor the construction and development of approximately 10,000 energy and water efficient homes in Kenya. By demonstrating the viability of environmentally sustainable building design, UKCI’s commitment and eventual investment will seek to embed green standards in the Kenyan market. The commitment will also support the creation of a new green asset class for local investors, mobilising Kenyan institutional capital to invest further in the sector.

 
Richard Abel, Managing Director of UKCI, says: “As Kenya’s urban population grows, the need for new affordable housing has never been greater. The commitment we have announced today represents an exciting opportunity to help address this challenge – financing the construction of new affordable homes whilst showcasing how more sustainable building design can help tackle the effects of climate change.”
 
Jane Marriott OBE, British High Commissioner to Kenya, says: “The UK is proud to partner with Kenya to tackle the pressing challenges of climate change and affordable housing. UK Climate Investment’s GBP30 million anchor investment will help build affordable, climate-friendly homes and promote green building standards in Kenya.”

Africa is increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, despite only being responsible for the production of two per cent of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. With rising average temperatures and more unpredictable rainfall expected over the coming decades, it is critical that building design in the region evolves to become more resilient. When compared with local building standards, the IFC EDGE certified homes financed by UKCI’s commitment will use at least 20 per cent less electricity and water than conventional Kenyan homes. The homes will also be built using materials with 20 per cent less embodied energy.
 
Access to affordable housing remains a significant challenge in Kenya, where approximately 36 per cent of the population live below the international poverty line. UKCI’s commitment will help address a critical shortage of affordable housing in Nairobi and contribute to the country’s goal of building 500,000 new affordable homes by 2022.
 
Last year, UKCI committed more than GBP40 million to support the build-out of green infrastructure across sub-Saharan Africa. In January, UKCI became a cornerstone investor in Revego Africa Energy Limited, committing GBP28 million to the dedicated African renewable energy yieldco. In August, UKCI announced a GBP14 million agreement with H1 Holdings to support the development of 254 MW of renewables projects across South Africa.
 
UKCI is a joint venture between the Green Investment Group and the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. UKCI forms part of the UK aid funded International Climate Finance. UKCI is managed by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, the world’s largest infrastructure manager.

Trump Turns MLK Day Tweet Into Tribute To His 2017 Inauguration   

Cache   

Donald Trump decided to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day the only way he knows how: with a tweet focused on himself.

On Monday, the president tweeted that the day marked the three-year anniversary of his inauguration before somehow tying that into the commemoration of King’s birthday. 

Considering the many times the president used racism and racist rhetoric to build up his campaign and his real estate business, it’s no surprise that many Twitter users weren’t exactly impressed.

Although Trump had no official plans to honor King, he and Vice President Mike Pence did reportedly visit the MLK memorial for about a third of a minute after sending the tweet Monday.

This article has been updated to note Trump and Pence briefly were at the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial on Monday.

Bloc-feuillet commun "Nelson Mandela" sur lettre de Tunisie

Avec 12 autres pays africains (Algérie, Burkina Faso, République Centrafricaine, Djibouti, Gambie, Kenya, Liberia, Libye, Niger, Sierra Leone, Afrique du Sud, Togo), la Tunisie a participé à ce projet commun en 2018, initié par l'Union PanAfricaine des Postes (UPAP), consistant à émettre un timbre et/ou un bloc-feuillet commun le 18 juillet 2018, Journée internationale Nelson Mandela, à l'occasion du 100ème anniversaire de la naissance de "Madiba", Nelson Mandela (1918-2013).
Les 2 administrations postales de Tunisie et de Libye n'ont curieusement pas choisi le même portrait de Mandela que les 11 autres pays...
La version tunisienne de ce bloc-feuillet (0,5 dinar, tirage : 100000), ainsi qu'un 2ème timbre extrait du bloc-feuillet, ont été utilisés pour affranchir cette jolie lettre envoyée le 29 novembre 2019 depuis la ville de Nabeul. Merci beaucoup Walid !
With 12 other African countries (Africa, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Djibouti, Gambia, Kenya, Liberia, Libya, Niger, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Togo), Tunisia participated in this joint project in 2018, initiated by the PanAfrican Postal Union (PAPU), to put into circulation a joint stamp and/or a souvenir sheet on July 18, 2018, the Nelson Mandela International Day, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of "Madiba", Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
The two postal administrations of Tunisia and Libya curiously did not choose the same portrait of Mandela as the 11 other countries ...
The Tunisian version of this souvenir sheet (0.5 dinar, print run: 100,000), as well as a second stamp extracted from the souvenir sheet, have been used to stamp this pretty letter sent on November 29, 2019 from the city of Nabeul. Thank you very much Walid!


Nelson Mandela est probablement la figure politique la plus marquante du siècle dernier dans le monde, combattant de la liberté, réconciliateur et modèle pour plusieurs générations de sud-africains.
Prix Nobel de la Paix en 1993 pour avoir conjointement et pacifiquement mis fin au régime de l'apartheid et jeté les bases d'une nouvelle Afrique du Sud démocratique, il s'est engagé dès le plus jeune âge à l'égalité des droits de la majorité de la population noire de son pays.
Malgré 27 ans d'emprisonnement, il a continué à se battre pour une Afrique du Sud non raciste, unie et démocratique. En 1994, Nelson Mandela a été élu premier président noir d'Afrique du Sud.
Walid a utilisé un 3ème timbre (1 dinar, tirage : 300000) faisant partie d'une série (4 timbres) émise le 14 février 2018, consacrée à différents sites touristiques et archéologiques, un paysage du Cap Blanc ici.
Le Cap Blanc, situé sur la côte nord de la Tunisie, est considéré comme l'un des points les plus au nord du continent africain, avec le Cap Angela situé non loin de ce site.
Nelson Mandela is probably the most prominent political figure of the last century in the world, freedom fighter, reconciler and model for several generations of South Africans.
Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for jointly and peacefully ending the apartheid regime and laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa, he committed himself from an early age to the equality of rights of the majority of the black population of his country. 
Despite 27 years of imprisonment, he continued to fight for a non-racist, united and democratic South Africa. In 1994, Nelson Mandela was elected the first black president of South Africa.
Walid used a 3rd stamp (1 dinar, print run: 300,000) being part of a series (4 stamps) issued on February 14, 2018, dedicated to different tourist and archaeological sites, a landscape of Cap Blanc here.
Cap Blanc, located on the north coast of Tunisia, is considered as one of the most northerly points on the African continent, with Cap Angela located not far from this site.

 The Democratic Republic of Congo

SND foundation established in 1894

The original community of seven Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who arrived in Congo from Belgium has grown to over 125 professed sisters, novices and postulants. These sisters come from many different tribes and speak many languages. At present they work mainly in rural areas in the fields of education and health care. Several sisters work directly with the people in the fields, growing crops and raising livestock. Still others prepare children and adults for the sacraments and a few oversee diocesan health and welfare programs

The Country

Most people, including our Sisters, still earn less than $200 a year. This means that even soap, salt, dried fish and meat become luxuries. Many people, especially in the cities, eat once a day. People in rural areas often do not have access to potable water and electricity. One out of three children die before the age of five and many mothers die in childbirth. Malaria, measles and intestinal parasites causing diarrhea and anemia are prevalent. Tuberculosis, diabetes and AIDS are growing health care concerns.

Because of years of neglect, civil war and the continued fighting in the north and east, the whole infrastructure of the country has deteriorated. This is reflected in the general state of disrepair not only of roads, bridges and barges, but also of mission schools, hospitals and dispensaries. Illiteracy, once almost unknown, is rapidly increasing because of rising school fees.

Photovoltaic projects have been installed in Kitenda, Lemfu, Ngidinga and Pelende in order to provide electricity and clean water to the hospitals, clinics, schools, communities in these villages.

In the midst of their daily struggle for survival, our Sisters and the people among whom they work continue with hope, joy and confidence to proclaim the goodness of God and of each other.

 Kenya

SND foundation established in 1965

In 1965, the first Sisters of Notre Dame went to Kenya to continue the world-wide vision of St. Julie Billiart, our foundress. Initially the Sisters worked in formal education, preparing women for higher education and both men and women to become teachers in primary and secondary schools throughout the country.

Sisters of Notre Dame have served at all levels of formal education in Kenya: primary, secondary, teacher training and university. As more Kenyans became professionally-qualified educators, the Sisters were able to move into other ministries. Our Sisters work with refugees, street children, city dwellers, and villagers. The aim of our work is to provide Kenyan people with vocational, agricultural, and educational skills so they may be self-reliant.

 Nigeria

SND foundation established in 1963

When our Sisters first arrived in Edo State in 1963, they worked in a maternity clinic and a girls' secondary school. In 1981, the Sisters of Notre Dame founded a new community in Agenebode, a market town on the River Niger. Our Nigerian community of Sisters continues to grow and so does their primary commitment to education, especially for the youngest and poorest children of the country.

Currently, we have 15 communities throughout Nigeria, where Sisters are involved in education and health clinics.

Our Congregation has developed an ambitious project for solar energy stations to bring clean  water and electricity to the people in some sites. Photovoltaic projects have been installed in Awkunanaw and Fugar where the Sisters and people have access to electricity and clean water in the health clinics, schools, and communities.

 South Sudan

A new Mission opened in November 2011, when one Sister of Notre Dame de Namur joined with 14 other religious congregations in ministering to the people of the new nation of South Sudan. Since 2006, religious congregations have been supporting the efforts of Solidarity with Southern Sudan (SSS). Responding to cries for life and survival in South Sudan, women and men religious have been collaborating through training and education programs in this newly formed African country.  In partnership with the local Church and the people of South Sudan, SSS is improving the country’s basic infrastructure by developing teacher and health training institutes as well as Catholic pastoral services. About 25 religious from 13 nations live in five communities that function as the support bases for training health-care professionals, teachers, pastoral care workers and farmers. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur share now in this collaborative effort.


 South Africa

SND foundation established in 1899

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur arrived in southern Africa in 1899, on their way to what was then Rhodesia. The year 2007 is the 100th anniversary of the first SND foundation in South Africa. There are currently seven Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in this country, where ministries include formation of teachers, skills training and school improvement.

In the 1990s, members of the South African government recognized the Sisters of Notre Dame for their great influence in dismantling the apartheid system through their dedication to education and to materially poor people.

 Zimbabwe

SND Foundation established in 1899

The first Sisters of Notre Dame came to Zimbabwe in 1899 to work with children at Empandeni-Embakwe. Since then, the Sisters have tried to share with their students and friends the wonder of the Gospel message. In Zimbabwe, our teaching ministries are expressed through a variety of channels: formal education, catechesis, pastoral work, and community development. Health care has become an increasingly significant part of the educational ministry because of the AIDS epidemic here.

In Harare, the Sisters run the Tariro Yedu project. This aims at preparing children who have never been in school to enter the school system. Most of the children are orphaned due to AIDS. Many of them have migrated to the urban area of Mbare from the rural areas, or were displaced in the Government “Clean-Up Operation”. In both the Bulawayo communities, Pumula and the Formation House, the Sisters provide vulnerable children with food and educational opportunities.

The Sisters in South Africa and Zimbabwe work closely together and now form the ZimSA Province.

Grades and outlook: Dalvin Cook's breakout sets up payday; will Vikings buy in?   

Cache   
Before running back Dalvin Cook's Vikings traveled to Dallas in November, he talked about approaching his contract status like Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott — "He's been putting in the work and not looking for a payday, just looking to get wins and looking to do good things." The part not mentioned was Elliott's 40-day summer holdout, which he parlayed into a six-year, $90 million contract on Sept. 4. Finally healthy, Cook went on a three-month tear through NFL defenses last season that might just be enough to cash in on a similar deal. Cook's breakout 2019 campaign confirmed what Vikings coaches already knew about their star runner's potential after he missed 17 of his first 24 NFL starts due to injuries. Now how much is the front office willing to pay while up against the salary cap? Next season is the last of Cook's rookie contract, and the Vikings' M.O. is to extend core players before the start of their final season. Below, we'll assess the 2020 outlook and 2019 grades of the Vikings' backfield, the wheels on the NFL's sixth-ranked rushing attack. — Pending free agentsFB C.J. Ham (restricted) RB Ameer Abdullah Under contract through (+ 2020 cap hit)2020: RB Dalvin Cook ($2.02M), RB Mike Boone ($662K), RB Tony Brooks-James ($585K) 2022: RB Alexander Mattison ($830K) — Grades are based on a 1-to-5 scale, with '5' marking excellence, '4' for above-average, '3' for average, '2' for below-average and '1' for failure to perform. Players that did not accrue a season (weren't on the active roster for at least six weeks) or played in five games or fewer are not graded. Below are individual grades, based on game and practice observations, weekly film reviews and interviews with coaches for six backs who finished the season on the Vikings' active roster, injured reserve or practice squad. Unofficial NFL stats, such as QB pressures, missed tackles and targeted passes, are compiled by ProFootballFocus.com. RB Dalvin Cook (4.5) —The opening 10-game stretch defined Cook's breakout season, during which he led the NFL in touches (243) and yards from scrimmage (1,415) before his injuries. Cook thrived in an offense funneling the ball through heavy personnel packages and perimeter runs that set up play-action passes. Premiere vision and acceleration make Cook a perfect fit for this Gary Kubiak system, which also deployed a creative screen game featuring Cook. Set a tone for the offense's direction during an 111-yard, two-touchdown game in Week 1 against the Falcons, a win during which Kirk Cousins attempted 10 passes. Nobody matched Cook's 10-game pace to open the season, and only Seattle's Chris Carson had more broken tackles than Cook (54) in that span. A right clavicle injury in Week 11 against the Broncos started to slow Cook, who left early in two of the next three games while suffering an additional left shoulder injury. Lost fumble on hit that forced him from Week 13 loss in Seattle, leading to a Seahawks field goal in the 37-30 loss. Durability remains the primary question. While he's one of the NFL's premiere dual threats in the backfield, Cook's drop problem persisted with his increased workload. Led the Vikings with seven drops on 63 targets; caught 53 passes for 519 yards. Coaches chose to rest Cook in the Week 16 loss vs. Green Bay. He sat the meaningless season finale against the Bears, then turned 31 touches into 130 yards and two touchdowns during the NFC wild-card playoff win in New Orleans. Ineffective when the Vikings' offensive line faced superior fronts in the 49ers, Bears, Eagles and Broncos. First-time Pro Bowler. Played a career-high 615 snaps [59.4%]. Incurred his first (and only) NFL penalty on a rare flag thrown for offensive pass interference after a scoring replay of Stefon Diggs' touchdown catch during the Week 2 loss at Green Bay. His 1,135 rushing yards ranked 10th in the NFL; 13 rushing touchdowns tied for fourth. Scored game-winning touchdown on fourth down during Week 10 win in Dallas. The play, like many of Cook's scores, was a pitch to the edge behind fullback C.J. Ham. FB C.J. Ham (3.5) — The former Denfeld Duluth star texted family and friends last spring about the possibility of having a breakout season in a new system under Gary Kubiak and Kevin Stefanski. Ham realized that vision this season, progressing from core special teams player to a pivotal role on offense where both the run and passing attacks thrived from the '21 personnel' — or two-back — formations featuring Ham. Only the 49ers deployed more two-back formations than the Vikings. First-time Pro Bowler as an alternate, replacing 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk (Super Bowl). Played a career-high 359 snaps [34.7%]. Not penalized. Two first downs on five short-yardage carries. Not an old-school thumping fullback, but grew steadily as a lead blocker. The former Augustana (S.D.) running back caught defenses by surprise as an outlet receiver, running for catches of 25, 32 and 36 yards. A reliable pass protector seldom used in the screen game. Caught 17 of 26 passes for 149 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown against the Lions in a Week 7 win. Dropped one. A restricted free agent who is likely to be tendered and re-signed. RB Alexander Mattison (3.0) —The Vikings' third-round rookie (102nd overall) was on a short list of the most effective closers in the fourth quarter. That's when Mattison took 42 of 100 carries and averaged 5.2 yards, trailing only Phillip Lindsay, Kenyan Drake and Raheem Mostert. An aggressive, one-cut runner, Mattison proved to be a strong replacement for Latavius Murray. Wasted no time showing off the athleticism of a former track star, as one of Mattison's few hurdles came on a 24-yard run during the season opener against the Falcons. Tough to bring down, breaking 19 tackles on 110 touches. Played 200 snaps [19.3%]. Not penalized. Second on the team with 462 rushing yards. Season-high 16 touches came against the Lions during the Week 14 win, when he spelled an injured Cook before spraining his ankle with two minutes left. Missed the final three regular season games to recover, but played just 15 snaps in two playoff games. Showed, like at Boise State, he's an all-around threat catching 10 of 12 targets for 82 yards. RB Ameer Abdullah (2.0) —A reliable veteran who played a variety of roles, however limited. Third on the team with254 special teams snaps [59.6%]. Second on the team with nine tackles on coverage groups, trailing only rookie corner Kris Boyd. The Vikings' primary kick returner fielding only 13 attempts for a 25-yard average. Season long came during the Week 7 win in Detroit, when Abdullah's 38-yard return began a touchdown drive. Lost one fumble in the Week 11 win vs. Denver. Biggest play was a 16-yard catch and run for a touchdown during the Week 9 loss in Kansas City. A limited passing-down back who played a season-high 32 snaps during the Week 16 loss vs. Green Bay. Caught 6 of 7 targets for 31 receiving yards against the Packers, but did not break a tackle. Finished with 137 offensive snaps [13.2%]. Penalized once for a false start. A pending free agent. RB Mike Boone (2.0) —Once again a preseason star, Mike Boone turned another impressive camp and exhibition schedule into a roster spot in a deep backfield. A special teams mainstay who played 222 snaps [52.1%] on all four phases. An elusive runner when given opportunities, but his inexperienced was exposed over time. Forced nine missed tackles on 52 touches. Played just 15 snaps on offense before Mattison's ankle injury. Scored two of his three touchdowns the following week against the Chargers, when Boone was elevated to the No. 1 role after Cook's shoulder injury. Played 82 offensive snaps [7.9%]. Not penalized. Third on the team with 273 rushing yards, including a career-high 148 yards during his second NFL start in the Week 17 loss to the Bears. Contributed to two turnovers at the start of that big day with a fumble and a tipped pass into an interception. Shut down the previous week in his first NFL start against the Packers. RB Tony Brooks-James (N/A) —Signed to the practice squad on Dec. 11 after Mattison's ankle injury. The undrafted rookie from Oregon had stops with the Falcons, Bucs and Steelers this season. Re-signed to a 2020 futures deal with the Vikings on Jan. 12.

Largest student housing development in SA   

Cache   
STAG African John Schooling

STAG African John Schooling

Funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training, the Development Bank of Southern Africa and the European Union, phase two of the project, valued at R400-million, is set for completion in October 2020.

The new residences will help ease the housing crisis at UFH and create a student community conducive to academic success.

“Lack of accommodation is one of the biggest challenges we face at the University of Fort Hare. Most of our students come from rural areas and do not have accommodation options when they arrive here. Currently, our residences are barely able to accommodate 50% of our student population on our Alice campus. Our aim with this project is to house 65% of our students on this campus,” says Vice-Chancellor of UFH, Professor Sakhela Buhlungu.

Developed by student accommodation group STAG African, the student village includes a new student centre and a dedicated postgraduate accommodation block. Phase one of the project, completed in 2014, saw 610 beds made available to the university. Completion of phase two, will bring the total number of beds handed over to 2 047, giving UFH the highest ratio of students to beds in the country.

“Good student accommodation is about more than just beds. Our vision for this development goes beyond providing accommodation; we want to create a sense of community and a feeling of belonging,” says co-founder of STAG African, John Schooling.

Earlier this year, government acknowledged that an additional 300 000 beds are required to accommodate the nation’s students. The student housing crisis is a result of a growth in demand for higher education in recent years. The lack of accommodation has been directly liked to higher failure and dropout rates for first year students.

Studies confirm that students who live on-campus have a 25% greater chance of passing than students who are not residents on campus.  “When a student is placed in temporary accommodation or is required to stay in accommodation that is unsafe, overcrowded and unhygienic, it’s no surprise when they can’t cope,” says Schooling. “We need to create the right conditions for academic success, and that starts with providing good accommodation. Once we do that, students can focus on achieving the results they need to be successful.”

STAG is in the process of funding the development of student housing all over Africa, including 34 000 beds at universities in Kenya, 4 700 in Malawi, 5 400 in Zambia and 3 000 in Lesotho. The company was established on the principle that university residences are social communities, and that their design can advance or detract from academic and societal goals.

          

Egy Kis Itália: A Bruschetta titka   

Cache   

Vannak napok, amikor nincs kedvem túl nagy dolgokat főzni, de mégis szeretnénk olaszosan élvezni a színeket és az ízeket az asztalon. Szeretem, amikor a friss alapanyagok illata lengi körbe a "cucina" falait otthon, de közben tényleg nem kell hadba vonulnom az olasz főzőtudomány színterén, csak gyorsan szeretnék alkotni valamit.

Nos pontosan ezekre a napokra az egyik legtökéletesebb megoldás a Bruschetta. Nem kell hozzá komplex olasz főzőtudomány, (bár hála istennek, az olasz ételek javarésze abszolút nem bonyolult, a titok a remek és friss alapanyag), nem kell hozzá Pasta szűrő és nagy fakanál sem. Ez a finomság, pontosan olyan, mint az olaszok, - mosolygós, vidám és olyan igazi kellemes atmoszférát teremt már a színeivel is, s ha ránézek, úgy érzem, minden egyes paradicsom és bazsalikom mosolyog rám és azt mondja: MANGIARE! Azaz egyél meg. 

bruschetta_perfetta.jpg

A Bruschetta-ban valahol ott van Olaszország szívem színe, lelke, a zöld és a piros mint az élet és a vitalitás színe, a régiók életenergiája és az emberek mosolya. S ennek a könnyed ételnek, oly sok verziója van, s annyira jó is elkészíteni, nemcsak az egyszerű recept miatt, hanem mert közben csodás mennyei mediterrán illatok keringenek majd körülöttünk. Hiszen velünk lesz a paradicsom, a bazsalikom, egy kis friss könnyebb extraszűz olívaolaj, pár szelet kellemes, lehetőleg savanykás, kovászos kenyérszelet, s egy kis dél olasz fokhagyma! Ezt sose felejtsétek. A fokhagyma olyan pikáns ízkeretet ad majd az egésznek, amitől még inkább Bruschetta rajongóvá válik az ember. S ugye nem véletlen, hogy ilyenkor eszünkbe jut a téli pirítós kenyér és a fokhagyma verziója, s hogy milyen is jó az. Nos a Bruschetta ennek egy olaszos verziója, jókedvet és mediterrán ízeket csomagolva az illatos kenyér felszínére. 

paradicsom.jpg

bazsalikom.jpg

Ennek a roppanós mediterrán ínycsiklandozó finomságnak a neve egy római dialektusból származik, a "bruscare" szóból, melynek jelentése, a pirítani, antik jelentése szerint "szénen sütni". Hiszen egy igazán jó Bruschetta alapja, egy kellemesen, de rendesen pirított jó kovászos kenyérszelet, melyet sütőben, vagy tűz felett egy arra megfelelő serpenyőben pirítunk meg. Nagyon fontos, hogy egy kellemes roppanós felszínt adjunk a kenyérnek és ne pirítsuk túl. Az etruszkok, - kiknek korába vezethető vissza ennek a finomságnak az eredete, annak idején kövön "sütötték", s fontos szabály volt, hogy sosem friss kenyérből, hanem inkább "egynapos" kenyérből csinálták. Amikor megpirult a kenyérszelet fokhagymával kenegették át, és olíva olajat csepegtettek az illatos kenyérillat köré. Mmmm.....belegondolok, most miközben írok Nektek, ismét újra el akarom készíteni ezt a finomságot. 

bruschetta_kenyeren.jpg

Azóta persze, hogy az etruszkok után teret hódított ez a finomság Itáliában, megannyi verziója lett, ahogy a régiók Bruschetta lázban kezdtek égni, mindenhol meglett a sajátos verziója. Így a fokhagymás alap az legtöbbször megmaradt, de van ahol csak a pirítós kenyér és olivás alap a standard. Ugyanakkor a régiók gasztronómiája még erre is rátett, hiszen van ahol prosciutto crudo, van ahol csirkemáj paté, cukkinikrém, vagy például gomba - porcini krém, vagy akár padlizsán, s megannyi féle sajt verzió is kerül a melegen illatozó megpirult kenyérre. Itt nálunk Friuliban mi imádjuk sajttal, prosciutto-val, sokszor például friss stracchino sajt kerül a pirítós kenyér fokhagymás ölelésére és arra érkezik a paradicsom és bazsalikom frissessége. 

A Bruschetta klasszikus sima olívaolajos verziója, Róma mellől származik, mert itt a hagyomány szerint az olíva termesztőknek ez szolgálta a kóstoláshoz az alapot. A friss olajat, mindig pirított kenyérre csepegtették és így ennek megannyi szokása lett, mikor az új olaj kóstolását megkezdték az olívaszüret után a gazdák. 

Toszkánában például azt mondják a helyiek, hogy a friss olajhoz, a legjobb az egynapos kenyérből készült bruschetta, melyhez egy kellemes pohár bor is dukál. Így született az a mondás is, hogy a legjobb az "egynapos kenyér, egy hónapos olaj és egyéves bor" mely a Bruschetta helyi rituáléja lett. A lényeg, hogy Bruschetta így vagy úgy, bármilyen verzióban is, - egy olyan könnyed finomság, amelytől biztosan mosolygós lesz a nap, s ráadásul a konyhánkban sem kell utána nagytakarítást tartani, mert könnyed módon elkészíthető. S jöjjön akkor a recept, ahogy mi szeretjük igazán :) 

bruschetta_nagy_piros_paradicsom.jpg

A Bruschetta mosolygós olasz asztali étek egyik legfontosabb titka a friss alapanyagok. A minél illatosabb bazsalikom, a kellemes aromájú fokhagyma, s a mosolygós friss paradicsom, melyből a legjobb, ha olyat használtok mely kevésbé vizesebb, inkább édesebb, szaftosabb. Én egy nagyobb fogadó tálhoz 3-4 nagyobb paradicsomot szoktam használni, de lehet több kisebb is, van aki kifejezetten "cherry" paradicsomból szereti, a lényeg, hogy ízes paradicsomot használjuk. Fontos lesz egy pici só és bors is, de nem kell sok, mert fontos a paradicsom, a fokhagyma és a bazsalikom tiszta ízének harmóniája. Én nagyon szeretem a nagylevelű bazsalikomot, abból mindig egyrészt 4-5 levelet apróra darabolok és kisebb leveleket pedig majd díszítésnek használok. 4-5 gerezd apróbb fokhagymát használok - fontos, hogy inkább kellemes aromájú legyen a fokhagyma, mintsem erős illatú, mert az el fogja vinni az egyéb zamatokat, de amúgy meg nagyon fontos alkotóelem.

Az anyósom sokszor előre csinál egy kis olíva olajban apróra összenyomott fokhagymával egy kis bazsalikomos alapot és a paradicsomokat ebben "marinálja" így is isteni lehet. 

Nagyon fontos, hogy rendkívül jó minőségű extra szűz olivaolajat használjunk, mert az teszi majd fel a koronát erre a finomságra, amit akár mindennap könnyedén megcsinálhatunk különböző verziókban. 

S amit még érdemes szem előtt tartnai, hogy ha nagyobb a paradicsom, érdemes őket felszeletelni kisebb darabokra, a kisebb "cherry" paradicsomokat én pedig maximum félbe szoktam vágni. Tegyük őket egy tálba ahol a paradicsom leve jól átjárhatja a héjat is, meg is lehet egy kicsit őket nyomkodni, s ebbe a kis paradicsomos tálkába teszem a borsot, és a sót, s az apróra darabolt bazsalikom levelet - s mindig hagyom ezt az egyveleget egy kicsit állni, hogy jól összeérjen. Van aki cseppent bele egy csepp (nagyon picike) citromot is, van aki ebbe tesz még egy kis szétnyomkodott fokhagymát, ezt már ízlés szerint látni fogjátok. Én is mindig máshogy csinálom, de eddig még mindig jól sikerült, valahogy nem lehet elrontani. 

A kenyeret én mindig előmelegítem sütőben, s aztán egy pár pillanat alatt serpenyőben pirítom meg, így lesz szuper kis kérge, és a belseje megmarad finom puhának, általában mindig 1-2 napos kenyeret (kovászos) használok. Mert úgy lesz isteni finom.

Kívánok Nektek így januárban is könnyed olaszos és mediterrán perceket otthon s ha van egy kis időtök, ezekkel az egyszerű kis étkekkel, hiszen amúgy az olasz konyhának pont ez a titka, hogy jó alapanyag és könnyen elkészíthető a finomságok javarésze - teremtsetek Egy Kis Itáliát, a családi asztal köré. 

Jó étvágyat kívánok, szeretettel, Kinga

The European market potential for diaspora tourism   

Cache   
Takes about 12 minutes to read

Diaspora tourists feel a stronger connection to their holiday destinations than other tourists. That is why they are more likely to visit local shops, eat at local restaurants and stay at local accommodations. The money that they spend usually goes straight to the local community. Ultimately, they will be the best ambassadors of your destination to their friends and family back home.


1 . Product description

Diaspora tourists are people who travel on holidays to destinations where they have an ancestral connection, such as where they were born, raised or where their ancestors live or lived. Diaspora tourists often have family, friends or relatives living in the destination country, or they have ancestors who came from there. Diaspora tourism also includes Friends and Family Tourism (VFR) as well as roots tourism, also called DNA tourism or ancestral tourism. Because diaspora tourists have some sort of connection with the destination country, they feel more like locals than regular tourists. Most diaspora tourists plan their own holidays, so diaspora tourism is very much related to free independent traveller (FIT) tourism.

Diaspora tourism by nature creates or already has strong connections to local economies and diaspora tourists actively try to contribute to them. Most diaspora tourists won’t make exclusive trips to big touristic attractions and instead more often make visits to authentic, small, local places. This includes visiting local shops, eating at locally owned restaurants and sleeping at small and less popular accommodations. The diaspora tourist on average spends less on their trip than regular tourists, but because they often book directly instead of using a tour operator, their money is more likely to directly contribute to the local community.

Diaspora tourists visit places regular tourists don’t often visit. This includes visiting family and friends in off-grid locations, participating in cultural or sport events, or visit regional tourism sites. This means that diaspora tourists can potentially put new places on the map for other tourists and help to geographically spread tourism destinations throughout a country. In addition, by travelling around with local family and friends, diaspora tourists also help to stimulate domestic tourism within the destination country.

While most tourism is seasonal, diaspora tourism doesn’t necessarily need to be. Although diaspora tourists alto tend to travel on calendar holidays, they also try to travel when flying costs, for example, are low. This applies best to tourists who are visiting friends and relatives, as well as to those travelling for special events, such as births, weddings, anniversaries and burials. Because diaspora tourism is less seasonal, it provides more regular and sustainable form of revenue.

Diaspora tourists likely have some knowledge of their destination and surrounding regions, which means they will be less sensitive to political instability, violence and other factors when planning their travels. It also means that diaspora tourists often visit places regular tourists don’t.

Tips:

  • Focus on diaspora tourists if your location is more remote, farther away from big tourist attractions.
  • Always be honest with the tourist about the state of safety in a particular area.
  • Offer deals throughout the year for tourists instead of seasonally, since diaspora tourists travel at all times of the year. This will also lead to more stable and less seasonal revenue.
  • Inform tourists about local events which gives them another way of connecting with the area. Diaspora tourists are more attached to the area their friends and family live, or where their roots are.
  • Ask diaspora tourists for feedback. Because of their special relationship with the destination, diaspora tourists are often more willing to contribute.

Visiting family friends and relatives (VFR) tourism

The VFR group often keeps a strong connection with the culture, community and habits at their travel destination. At least some of these tourists speak or understand the local language. These connections make VFR tourists feel much more like a local than regular tourists would. These tourists also blend more easily into the local society and know more about local rules and habits than your regular tourist, so they are less likely to harm the customs of an area. Yet, they still are tourists and they do want to see the popular attractions and sights other tourists do. In most destination countries, VFR is the largest type of diaspora tourism.

Tips:

  • Attract VFR tourists within your own community; VFR tourists tend to enjoy trips with their families.
  • Understand the reasons for the diaspora in the first place. People who have established themselves in Europe for economic or cultural reasons, and those whose families have been in Europe for more than one generation will obviously be more likely to visit as tourists than those who left for reasons related to politics, war, persecution, etc. For more information about the background of immigration into Europe, read chapter 3 of the World Migration Report 2018.

Roots or ancestral tourism

This group is probably not so familiar with local culture, community and habits, but they will feel more at home than regular tourists because they have some ancestral connection. The reason for their travel is to learn and experience their family history and the way of life of their ancestors. They visit places where their ancestors could possibly have lived or travelled through. A part of this may be visiting ancient slave and trade routes. Many roots visitors chose to explore without too many people around, because for many this is a very special journey.

Many African slave routes can be found on the website of Afro Tourism. Some companies also offer tours to explore these roots. This can either be a small local tour like the one offered by Viator, or a full-package deal trip including several destinations.

Tips:

  • Offer personalised guidance instead of group tours.
  • Develop a tour totally geared to roots tourists, such as Poland travel’s.
  • Treat a diaspora tourist like a local. Root tourists consider their hosts as their own people and the journey as a return trip home, even if their connection to the destination is several generations removed.
  • Beware of excessive commercialisation, like prices for taking photographs, which downgrades the tourist’s excitement.
  • Understand your visitors. A big reason for taking the trip for roots tourists is the emotional journey. They differ from regular tourists because there is an underlying seriousness and emotional engagement to the trip and the location.
  • Make sure your guides are well trained and preferably certified. Their knowledge of the history, their credibility and their sensitivity towards the tourists are very important.

2 . What makes Europe an interesting market for diaspora tourism?

According to IZA, there are millions of people living in Europe who came as a result of diaspora. In some countries, they make up between 1% and 2.5% of the national population, which makes it a big potential target group for tourism.

In addition to tourism, diaspora tourists also contribute in other ways to their ancestral land.

One way they contribute is literally by sending money. Remittance transfers have been growing worldwide and continue to do so. For example, remittances to Kenya grew from €671 million in 2017 to €2.4 billion in 2018, which is equivalent to 3% of Kenya’s 2018 GDP. In Uganda, 2018 remittances added up to €1.114 billion, which corresponds to 4.5% of Uganda’s 2018 GDP. These are significant amounts.

When diaspora tourists visit the destination where they have a connection, they strengthen those bonds and that may lead to increased remittances.

Another way diaspora tourists may contribute to a destination is with knowledge and skills. Diaspora groups are likely to have higher incomes and acquire more education and work experience in Europe, so they may decide to apply some of it or invest money in local communities and businesses. At the very least, they may become the best ambassadors of your country in Europe.

3 . Which European countries offer most opportunities for diaspora tourism?

In number of trips, VFR tourism offers a much larger market than roots tourism. For European tourists, roots tourism is a very small niche. However, since their demands are so specific, it is important to address these visitors specifically. Roots tourism comes mainly from the United States and to a lesser extent from the Caribbean. It offers a small market, but roots tourism is also up and coming in Europe and there is very limited competition yet.

Because visiting friends and relatives tourism is so much larger, we will focus on VFR tourism in this section. In this segment, Germany offers the most opportunities.

In order to seize opportunities in diaspora tourism, you must know where the diaspora from your country went to. To learn how many people with a background from your country live in each European country, download our European diaspora table, which has been extracted from 2018 Eurostat data.

Tips:

  • Before developing a tour, first make a selection of one or two target markets you intend to focus on. Demarcating your market offers you focus in your marketing activities and will also contribute to understanding your clients.
  • Read our study on tourism demand to learn more about outbound European tourism.
  • Target associations that represent people from your country or culture in Europe, whether to advertise or to get in contact with networks of people from your country.

Examples of these organisations in Europe include:

4 . What trends offer opportunities in the European diaspora tourism market?

Social media if for everyone

The target groups Generation Y (born between 1980 and 1995) and Generation Z (born between 1995 and 2010) will eventually dominate the tourism market. As people from all backgrounds do, members of diasporas also connect more online and via social media nowadays, and some examples of this are Uniting Eritrean voices in Germany and Indians in London.

Tips:

  • Read more about these target groups in our study on Generation Y.
  • Create an event for a specific target group via Facebook, such as this surf festival in Morocco promoted on Facebook and YouTube. You can also use travel blogs for this purpose.
  • Target your customers via a group on social media for a particular community in a specific European country.

More people gain knowledge about their roots via DNA tests

DNA testing technologies are improving and costs are lowering. People now can order a DNA test and receive the results at home instead of going to a specialist lab. This means getting to know about your roots is more accessible than ever and opens up the road for many more diaspora tourists to discover their past.

Tips:

  • Develop a product for root tourists where they can experience the local history. This may include, for example, showing historic sites, connecting tourists with people who know local historic customs, showing older elements of your culture, or offering authentic food from a certain period.
  • Collaborate with European companies that offer DNA tests. Examples of such companies are CRI Genetics in the UK, My Heritage (in many European countries) and Ancestry in the UK.
  • Target a specific group via Facebook advertising. When you have a company in Kenya for example, you can target a European country where people are interested in Kenya as well as in DNA searches.
  • Focus on DNA tourists, if there have been high migration flows from your country to Europe in the past.

People who are part of diasporas also look for unique experiences

A general trend among European travellers is the growing demand for unique experiences. Younger people especially want to plan their own holidays, instead of booking an existing trip. This is also true for people who are part of diasporas. Many roots tourists and VFR tourists will buy their own tours, simply because their demands are so specific that there aren’t predefined products for them. Plus, there are not so many tour operators offering roots tourism out there.

Tips:

  • Read our study on free independent traveller (FIT) tourism to learn more about how European travellers plan their own trips.
  • Consider entering the dark tourism market as well. Your root travel products may also inadvertently attract people looking for this kind of tourism. Their demands are less personalised than roots tourists’ and the products may even attract larger groups.
  • When you are attracting organised tour participants, which is still a large market, try to improve their experience, for example, by including welcome ceremonies, visiting communities, re-enactments and initiation ceremonies.

New immigrants may offer opportunities in the future

New immigrants are coming into Europe every day. Their first concern will obviously not be to return for a touristic trip, but many will return some day to reunite with friends and families. According to Eurostat, in 2016 approximately 2 million people from developing countries moved to Europe, especially to Germany (533 thousand), the UK (340 thousand), Spain (327 thousand), France (310 thousand), Poland (236 thousand) and Romania (208 thousand).

Tips:

  • Stay informed about recent migration flows from your country into Europe. This may help you to target new markets in the future.
  • Read our study on trends in the European tourism market. This will help you to gain insight in threats and opportunities in the European outbound tourism market. Most trends in the European tourism market will also apply to diaspora tourism.

Cultural events are up and coming

Some countries have international events aimed at attracting people who are members of a diaspora or who have shared cultural backgrounds, such as the Egyptian-Greek-Cypriot Roots revival Initiative in Egypt and the Roots International Festival in Gambia. Festivals like these increase the popularity and publicity of an area, often increasing tourism numbers outside of the festivals’ days. These types of events often occur outside tourist resorts, which means they can bring tourism to places not overly explored by the tourism industry, which is great for spreading tourism but may be problematic for infrastructure.

Tips:

  • Stay informed about your own government’s diaspora policy, if it has one, like the diaspora policy of Kenya, which may offer clues to business opportunities.
  • Attract visitors for a roots or cultural event, or initiate one such event yourself.
  • Pay attention to the presence of tourism infrastructure and facilities. Many times these events are organised in places less visited by tourists, where there is insufficient infrastructure, like not enough hotel rooms.

The head of the World Economic Forum says it’s “reassuring” that US President Donald Trump and climate activist Greta Thunberg will both return to its annual meeting in Davos this year, noting that concerns about the environment will be a key topic.

WEF founder Klaus Schwab sees vast changes in business, society and culture over the 50 years since he created the yearly gathering in the Swiss Alps, which initially was a forum for business leaders but now is a key stop for policymakers and activists as well.

Following another year of extreme heat, out-of-control wildfires and melting ice sheets, environmental issues are considered to be the top five long-term risks confronting the global economy, WEF said last week, citing a survey of more than 750 decision-makers.

It said catastrophic trends like global warming, climate change and the extinction of animal species would top the agenda at the meeting that begins on Tuesday.

The forum is shifting its focus of recent years from how technology is transforming lives to the environment and responsible business practices that promote jobs, fight climate change and work for social good along with profit-making.

The focus on environment could make for an uncomfortable subject for Trump, whose administration has called for expanded use of carbon-spewing coal, stripped away environmental protections and played down concerns among scientists about man-made climate change. Trump has also moved to take the US out of the landmark 2015 Paris accord to fight climate change.

Schwab says Trump is welcome because of his role on the world stage while Thunberg will keep the focus on the environment. Both will speak on Tuesday, the opening day.

“I think both voices are necessary,” Schwab said on Sunday in an interview with The Associated Press. “The environment will play a particularly important role during this meeting.”

Schwab pointed to the forum’s 160 “lighthouse” projects on inclusion and equality; economic development; technology governance; regional development; corporate leadership and ecology, including a project to plant a trillion trees.

“So if Greta comes this year, she will see that we have made substantial progress,” he said, alluding to her debut at the forum last year.

Time magazine chose Thunberg as its “Person of the Year” for 2019.

Schwab claimed the forum has helped air concerns about the environment since the 1970s, but said public awareness about climate issues has now exploded.

“Now we have recognised the urgency, because we know the window to act (on climate change) is closing,” he said, adding he hoped to inject “this sense of urgency into the meeting.”

He said many companies are increasingly seeing the benefits of “ESG” — environmental, social and governance — concerns in their business models.

“Companies recognise ... doing good ... it’s a precondition for some long-term survival,” Schwab said.

On Friday, Schwab and the chairmen of Bank of America and Dutch nutrition company Royal DSM sent a joint open letter to corporate leaders on hand this year to set “a target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner” if their companies haven’t done so already.

The forum chief said nearly all European Union leaders will be on hand this year, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He said the EU has a chance to lay out its vision for the future and turn the corner after three years of haggling over Britain’s departure from the bloc, which comes at the end of this month.

He also brushed aside critics who have faulted the forum as an overly exclusive vacation for the world’s out-of-touch elites.

“If I am particularly proud of something during the last 50 years, it is of having created many years ago the community of young leaders,” Schwab said, citing 10,000 young “Global Shapers” in over 400 cities who he said are engaged in issues on the ground. “We try — and I think quite successfully — to integrate the bottom-up, young generation very much.”

The Davos gathering has battled a reputation of being a haunt for the rich, powerful and famous over its five decades. Over the years, the forum has hosted celebrities like Hollywood stars Shirley Maclaine and George Clooney, Nobel Peace Prize laureates Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat, and former South African presidents F.W. de Klerk and Nelson Mandela, and business gurus like Davos regular Bill Gates.

Climate activists march on Davos

Meanwhile, hundreds of climate activists, young and old, embarked on a three-day march on Sunday to the make their voices heard at the 50th World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of Davos.

Some were disguised as flowers or koala bears — a reference to the bushfires currently ravaging their habitat in Australia — and holding banners including: “Let's ignore the Donalds and listen to the Gretas”, referring to US President Donald Trump, and “Make the world cool again”.

The group, brandishing banners warning “Climate crisis: a world economic failure” and “there is no Planet B,” urged political and business leaders to take responsibility for averting environmental catastrophe as they set off from the small town of Landquart some 50 kilometres (32 miles) from Davos.

“The climate question is the number one issue and it should simply be topic number one at Davos too and participants should recognise that; it is essential they go in this direction,” Katherine, a Zurich-based pensioner, told AFP.

Local authorities have only authorised the first two days of the activists' march as far as the swanky ski resort of Klosters but the group say they plan to follow narrow footpaths to make it as near the summit as possible.

“Here we are with 700 people hiking to Davos. It is amazing, it is incredible solidarity for people in a country that is very worthy, that is not dealing with the same kind of issues. But they understand the immorality of Davos, the immorality of a billionaire class that meets every year to celebrate their excesses,” said Kenyan eco-campaigner Njoki Njoroge Njehu.

Njehu made a speech at a similar gathering Friday in Lausanne which was attended by teenage Swedish campaigner Greta Thunberg. She was not in Landquart but is expected to show in Davos and address the forum after US President Donald Trump.

The atmosphere was festive as the group set off around 1:30pm (1230 GMT), several serenading their fellow marchers with Alpine horns.

The January 21-24 WEF forum has stressed that climate change is a key topic at this year's summit. The forum is inviting some 2,800 invited participants, including major businesses and some 50 heads of state and government, to set a net-zero carbon emissions target for 2050.

“All companies coming to Davos have been asked to commit to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 or earlier,” organisers have stated.

Speaking of Strava, stout group out there, keep it up gang. Art went to Nashville and got busy, and when I say busy I mean BIZZAY. Thoroughly AND consistently. Explicit and raw too. Fred drops knowledge per usual and  this one you have to listen all the way to the end to hear his amazing story from the Ancient Oaks 100 down in Florida.

Art told me to put things in the show notes that I definitely forgot. Oh well. Welcome to the future, bitches.
