Umtiti's header takes France to WC final

Sports

DF-Xinhua Report

Samuel Umtiti's 51st minute header earned France a place in Sunday's World Cup final as they defeated Belgium 1-0 in St Petersburg on Tuesday night.

   Umtiti took advantage of a lapse in defense to nod the ball past Thibaut Courtois via a slight deflection to give them a win in a tight but entertaining game, where one small detail made the difference.

   France welcomed Blaise Matudi back into midfield following suspension and retained their habitual 4-2-3-1 system, while Belgium returned to a system of three central defenders, with the powerful Axel Witsel, Moussa Dembele, Nacer Chadli and Marouane Fellaini in the middle of the park in what was virtually a 3-2-4-1 formation.

   Kylian Mbappe showed his pace after just 10 seconds with a run down the right and a cross that was just hacked away from the advancing Antoine Griezmann, before Belgium took control of the ball with the mobile Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne both producing dangerous balls into the area, before Hazard fired just wide in the 15th minute and saw Raphael Varene flick the ball over when a shot looked destined for the net.

   Hugo Lloris was then twice in the action, punching clear from Fellaini and saving at full stretch to deny Toby Alderweireld's shot on the turn as Belgium pressed for the opening goal.

   Hazard was pulling the strings for Belgium, but the game ebbed and flowed as the first half progressed with Giroud the focus of France's attacks, putting a Mbappe cross wide when well-placed 11 minutes before the break.

   Benjamin Pavard went closer with a shot Courtois saved with his outstretched foot after Mbappe had hypnotized the Belgian defense.

   France took the lead in the 51st minute after Umtiti got in front of Fellaini to nod past Courtois, who five minutes later produced a fine save to deny Olivier Giroud, put through by Mbappe's backheel.

   Dries Mertens came on for Dembele, but Fellaini headed his cross just wide in the 65th minute as the game once more opened up.

   Witsel drew a good save out of Lloris with 10 minutes remaining as Belgium lay siege to the France goal, but it was a night where the final pass was always just wayward and on Sunday the French will once again march on Moscow.

Death toll rises to 158, dozens missing in torrential rain in Japan

DF-Xinhua Report

The death toll continued to rise while government stepped up search and rescue efforts after torrential rain pummeled western Japan, causing flooding and landslides.

   According to Japan's public broadcaster NHK, 158 people have been confirmed dead in 12 prefectures and 56 people are still unaccounted for.

   Hiroshima prefecture was hit hardest by the record rainfall and subsequent landslides, with death toll there reaching 59, while Okayama prefecture suffered 54 deaths.

   The government and local municipalities have stepped up search and rescue efforts to find the 56 people that are still unaccounted for, and as most of the people missing are in Hiroshima, death toll could further rise in the prefecture.

   Meanwhile, more than 10,000 people in 15 prefectures were still staying under evacuation shelters as of Tuesday noon, with blazing heat now compounding the problem.

   According to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), an active seasonal rain front caused torrential rain in most eastern and western regions of Japan since last Thursday.

   The agency has warned that Japan's Kinki region, which includes Kyoto, Hyogo and Osaka prefectures, could be particularly hard-hit by downpours, escalating the risk of floods, landslides, lightning and tornadoes.

   Regarding the heavy casualty, Emi Masatani, an expert from Japan Bousaisikai, a non-profit disaster-prevention organization, told Xinhua that people in Japan normally attach great importance to prevention of natural disasters, but sometimes fail to pay enough attention to heavy rainfalls as they are predictable.

   According to local reports, many people chose to stay at home even after the weather agency issued emergency warnings and evacuation orders following the heavy rain and thus lost the chance to escape when flooding or landslides occurred.

   Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who canceled his trip to Europe and the Middle East to attend to the disaster, told a meeting of the government's crisis response unit that reserve funds would be made available before requests came in from local governments.

   "We will assess the needs of victims and push for quick reconstruction," the prime minister said.

   Abe is scheduled to visit Okayama prefecture on Wednesday to inspect the damage and assess the evacuees' needs.

   Japan's top government spokesperson Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a press briefing that the government is likely to tap into reserve funds of about 2 billion yen (18 million U.S. dollars) to help deal with the disaster's aftereffects.

   But Farm Minister Ken Saito said that damage caused to agriculture, including mountain forests, paddy fields and reservoirs, had already topped 7 billion yen (63 million U.S. dollars).

   The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said that as of Tuesday morning, 347 homes have been partially or completely destroyed by the downpours or in landslides and 9,868 homes have been flooded.

   The extent of the damage is likely to rise significantly, the agency said, as many municipalities have yet to report the full extent of the damage.

   Abe also said that to address food and water shortages in some of the disaster areas, trucks carrying food and water stocks to retail stores, including convenience stores, will be considered emergency vehicles.

   The Health Ministry said that as of Tuesday morning, nearly 300,000 homes spanning 12 prefectures in western Japan were still without water supply.

   To safeguard their workers, some major businesses in the disaster-hit regions have halted production, including at Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corp.

All 12 boys, coach rescued from flooded cave in Thailand

DF-Xinhua Report

All 12 boys and their football coach have been rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand after being trapped for 18 days, Thai navy SEALs confirmed on Tuesday.

   The coach was one of the last to be extricated from the cave.

   The 12 young footballers, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach went missing in Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai Province since June 23.

   They were found on July 2 after the search, joined by more than 1,000 rescuers, entered the ninth day.

   Thirteen foreign cave diving experts and five Thai navy rescuers joined the first operation on Sunday that brought out four boys from the cave. Rescuers spent about 11 hours on the mission. Another four boys were extrated by the same team on Monday.

   The remaining four boys and their coach were rescued on Tuesday and were sent to hospital by helicopters.

   After the successful and perilous rescue mission, it would take some time for the divers of the rescue team to evacuate from the cave. After their evacuation, the cave would be closed, according to Thai rescue operation officials.

   The eight boys extracted on Sunday and Monday were being treated in hospital and were in good condition, according to hospital sources.

   Chinese volunteer divers who joined the rescue mission called it a "tremendous and very dangerous operation."

Flat fire kills 5 in southwest France

DF-Xinhua Report

Five people, including a two-year child, were found dead on Tuesday after a fire burnt their home in Pau, Southwest France, following an apparent family dispute, local media reported.

   Citing sources close to the investigation, BFMTV news channel said the fire broke out at a flat in first floor of four-storey building early Tuesday.

   "There were two couples in the apartment. Someone would have set a sofa on fire, and neighbors seeing smoke this morning alerted firefighters," Jean-Paul Brin, first deputy mayor of Pau was quoted as saying.

   "It was probably a family dispute that turned to massacre. No one knows anything more," he added.

   According to the report, traces of blood were discovered around the apartment where a person was found tied up.

   An inquiry was underway to identify the victims and the causes of the incident.

Real Madrid confirm Ronaldo move to Juventus

Sports

DF-Xinhua Report

Real Madrid have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the club this summer to join Juventus, ending months of speculation about the forward's future.

   The European champions reportedly agreed to a 105 million-euro transfer fee, ending the 33-year-old's trophy-laden nine-year spell in the Spanish capital.

   "For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of the great symbols," a club statement read.

   "Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football. Real Madrid will always be your home."

   The Portugal international is understood to have signed a four-year contract with the Serie A club worth 30 million euros a season.

   Ronaldo scored a club record 451 goals in 438 matches after his 2009 move from Manchester United.

   He helped them win the Champions League in four of the past five seasons and claimed the Ballon d'Or - awarded to the world's best player - in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017. He also received the honor as a Manchester United player in 2008.

   In a letter posted on Real Madrid's website, Ronaldo expressed gratitude for his time at the Bernabeu.

   "I only have feelings of huge thanks for this club, for the fans and for this city," he said. "But I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that's why I asked the club to accept to transfer me. I ask everyone, and especially our supporters, to please understand me."

          Finland to probe potential of cattle manure for energy production      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Large-scale animal husbandry in Finland generates some 20 million tonnes of waste annually, the nutrient content of which is currently under-utilised.

The government programme calls for the country to harness up to half of the droppings created on farms to be used for bio-fuel production by the year 2025. However so far, there has been little significant progress made towards this goal.

Major dairy producer keen on droppings potential

Finnish dairy group Valio has taken steps in the direction of the government programme by dipping its toe into the dung-to-energy business.

The company is betting on a pilot plant slated to start up in Nivala, northern Ostrobothnia, and has received three million euros from the Economic Affairs and Employment ministry in support for energy projects. Valio is aiming to develop an extensive ordure treatment network, with the Nivala plant as part of the system.

Valio’s patented process would be suitable for refining raw material from smaller farms as well as large-scale operations. Valio primary production director Juha Nousiainen said that in addition to separating water and biogas from the sludge, the process also yields nitrogen and phosphorous-calcium sediments which can be applied to the soil as fertiliser and are also considered organic.

According to Nousiainen, Valio primarily sees the process as an ecological approach to addressing some of the problems associated with the dairy production chain – but also as a business opportunity.

Cattle sludge runneth over

Many cattle farmers are finding themselves hemmed in by growing amounts of cattle compost. As cattle farms expand, there is a shortage of arable land to use as the final destination for fertiliser in the form of manure. Additionally, liquid manure is one of the culprits responsible for nitrogen runoffs into water bodies that eventually contribute to high nutrient loads and result in eutrophication.

Nousiainen pointed out that dairy farms generate up to twice as much dung as they do milk. Dairy giant Valio already knows the areas where dung collection will be needed, because the firm covers some 50 million kilometres every year on dairy collection and distribution runs.

“Dairy farms would produce enough biogas raw material to cover all of that travel, supply farmers tractors, and still have plenty left over,” Nousiainen claimed.

Story continues after photo.

Nousiainen said that the company is hoping that the pilot project will help form a broad ecosystem for slurry collection and downstream processing. He said the firm will likely begin approaching potential partners after the summer vacation.

“Dairy farms, technology providers, gas and nutrient users and companies are all welcome. So are researchers, financiers and officials.”

Farmer ahead of the times

Meanwhile Nivala farmer Heikki Junttila has been using manure generated by his cattle to produce energy since the year 2000. For him, what some see as a foul-smelling sludge that’s best avoided, is one of the most precious of raw materials.

Junttila uses methane from the sludge and also utilises ammonia as it transforms, so the process is completely odourless. The progressive farmer said that he wonders why cattle droppings are still not used to their full potential and he charged that the government’s negative attitude hampered his biogas project in its early stages.

Now however, the situation has turned around and Junttila has been enlightening government ministers and other influencers eager to lap up his experiences converting ordure into energy -- many who have visited his farm to marvel at his bioreactor.

The government has recently tabled draft legislation in parliament that would make it easier to use cattle manure for energy production.

          Supreme Court upholds fine for "paedophile hunter" who outed convicted child sex abuser      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Finland’s Supreme Court has upheld a sentence handed down by an appeal court in the case of a self-declared "paedophile hunter" who used a Facebook page to out a man convicted of child sexual abuse.

The defendant, Mikko Parantainen of Äänekoski in central Finland had previously been convicted by a district court on charges of disseminating information that violated personal privacy and slapped with a 40-day fine. Parantainen had also been ordered to pay costs and damages amounting to 5,500 euros.

Parantainen appealed the district court verdict and sentence to the appeal court and later to the Supreme Court, but both appellate courts upheld the previous verdict and sentencing.

Convicted man turns to police

The charges were originally filed as a result of a Facebook page that Parantainen maintained, "For paedophile victims", where he published a photo of a man convicted of aggravated child sex abuse. The man had been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in Outokumpu, eastern Finland.

The image came from the convicted man’s own Facebook profile and Parantainen linked the photo to a news item that revealed his name.

The convicted man later lodged a request for a police investigation into Parantainen’s actions.

In delivering its ruling, the Supreme Court found that the right to live in peace is a fundamental part of private life and also extends to persons convicted of criminal offences.

The Court said that the availability online of information about persons guilty of criminal activity does not mean that such information can be freely published in various contexts.

According to the higher court, the publication of the man’s photograph in particular was a gross violation of the convicted man’s privacy.

On 07.10.18 11:34 AM posted by Alexis Mrachek On July 16, President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet (https://www.rferl.org/a/white-house-kremlin-jointly-announce-putin-trump-summit/29324935.html) for their first formal bilateral summit in Helsinki, Finland. Expectations should be kept at a minimum. The U.S. and Russia have conflicting interests when it comes to many of the major geopolitical issues of the day, and this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Trump should use this meeting to address some serious issues with his Russian counterpart. For one, he must make clear to Putin that U.S. policy remains that Crimea is part of Ukraine, not Russia. Crimea legally belongs to Ukraine and since 2014 Russia has been occupying the peninsula unlawfully.

Hace unos años, la periodista Kate Bolick detectó una pauta en los datos del censo estadounidense que le llamó la atención. Cada vez eran más las mujeres que no solo no decidían casarse, sino que además se decidían a vivir solas.

La pauta mostraba un auge de esta tendencia y podía leerse en un contexto más amplio, el de un cambio demográfico (que Europa ya había empezado un poco antes) en el que los ciudadanos se casaban menos, vivían de formas más variadas (el hogar clásico ya no era necesariamente el formado por una pareja de padres y sus dos hijos) y en el que las decisiones vitales se ajustaban mucho menos a lo que se esperaba que se hiciese, a lo que tradicionalmente se habían convertido en los pasos tradicionales que había que dar para llegar a la vida adulta y para cruzarla 'con éxito'.

Bolick usó esos datos como punto de partida para un ensayo, Solterona, en el que reivindicaba el término y lo ponía en valor. Pero los datos no eran solo una cuestión interesante en términos de feminismo, sociología o demografía, sino también un elemento al que las marcas y las empresas tenían que prestar mucha atención. El mercado estaba cambiando y cada vez era más habitual cruzarse con consumidores que formaban una familia de uno.

La tendencia está además en un momento de auge de crecimiento, como acaba de demostrar la última estadística europea sobre la cuestión. "La última estadística sobre el tamaño de los hogares en la Unión Europea muestra que en 2017 cerca de un tercio de los hogares en la UE estaba formado por un adulto soltero sin hijos", explican en la presentación de datos.
Un tercio de los hogares está formado por un solo adulto

Aunque las cifras varían entre el algo menos de 20% de Malta (el país en el que menos solteros viven solos) y el 51% de Suecia (en el que más ocurre esto), la pauta muestra una tendencia emergente. En 2010, el porcentaje de hogares que entraba dentro de este perfil era el 31%. En 2017 ya eran el 34%. En algunos países, como Letonia, la cantidad de hogares compuestos por un adulto solo creció en 10 puntos porcentuales. En España, la cantidad de estos hogares ya está más o menos por encima del 25%.

En todo el mundo, los hogares de una sola persona son ya el 15% de todos. En 25 países desarrollados, como Japón, Alemania, Finlandia o Estonia, ya hay más hogares formados por una sola persona que por la tradicional pareja con sus dos hijos. Como explican en el análisis de esos datos, el desarrollo económico, la creciente riqueza, la mejora de los estándares de vida y el cambio en la situación de las mujeres (que han logrado en el siglo XX el acceso a la educación y al trabajo y a las decisiones relacionadas con su estilo de vida) ha potenciado el crecimiento de este tipo de hogares y también que los ciudadanos vivan más tiempo de esta manera. Vivir solo se ha convertido en una etapa más de la vida y también ha dejado de ser identificado como algo solitario. Vivir solo ya no se lee como estar solo.

Por tanto, no solo hay cada vez más personas que viven solas, sino también hay cada vez más personas que toman decisiones de consumo a partir de este dato. El mercado de los productos para uno es cada vez mayor y es un filón cada vez más amplio para las empresas.
Productos para uno

Y quizás las propias empresas ya nos han ido dando pistas a lo largo de los últimos años de hacia dónde iban las cosas y cómo eso estaba modificando el modo en el que los productos se lanzaban al mercado.

En el mercado inmobiliario, los estudios y los pisos con pocas habitaciones, cuando no solo una, son cada vez más fáciles de encontrar entre la oferta de venta y entre los planes de construcción de edificios nuevos. No son, eso sí, los más simples de localizar cuando se está intentando alquilar dónde vivir. En las inmobiliarias, suelen señalar que esos pisos se alquilan muy rápido y también que el equilibrio entre oferta y demanda no está ajustado a las necesidades del inquilino. Quien haya alquilado alguno de esos pisos ya sabrá que se suelen cotizar casi en pagos en sangre de unicornio.

Otro gran ejemplo de cómo están cambiando las cosas y cómo son cada vez más conscientes las empresas del emergente mercado de las personas que viven solas son los supermercados. Algo más de una década atrás, si se iba a comprar a una gran superficie como un hipermercado era casi imposible comprar cantidades pequeñas. Todos los productos eran 'para familias'. Las bandejas de carne, por ejemplo, ofrecían siempre cantidades abrumadoras de producto y resultaba casi imposible encontrar una que ofreciese menos volumen. Ahora, sin embargo, eso no resulta tan complicado y en algunos supermercados lo difícil es hasta encontrar bandejas con cantidades masivas.
Las tendencias de consumo que lideran

Las marcas tendrán que prestarles todavía más atención en el futuro. Un estudio de Euromonitor ya apuntaba (en 2007) que los hogares de un solo miembro se iban a convertir en el grupo más importante de consumidores en el futuro inmediato. No se trataba solo de que cada vez fueran más, sino también de cómo estaban cambiando los hábitos de consumo y los estilos de vida.

Una parte muy importante de estos consumidores que viven solos son profesionales jóvenes, que tienen dinero y que quieren gastarlo. Además, apuntaban, es un mercado que gasta mucho dinero en ciertos sectores, como es el del entretenimiento, y que exige ciertos tipos de productos, como demuestra el que sea quienes impulsen el mercado de lo saludable. Otros estudios muestran que son consumidores no solo early adopters, sino también intensos de moda o viajes.

          Comentario en Perspectivas de la empresa privada. Carlos Ávila Villamar por Maño      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Lo que leo de economía trato de entenderlo, es un tema que debería preocuparnos a todos, así que algo que diga acá será con todas las falencias conceptuales que se le pueden achacar a un neófito en la materia. Existe un Socialismo teórico y también un Capitalismo teórico, la practica concreta es mucho más rica que conceptos predeterminados. Hace un tiempo, ya casi 18 años, vivos en un Capitalismo Tercermundista, y en mi practica personal tratando de ser un "empresario pequeño", uno va asimilando determinadas mañas de este sistema, aunque a decir verdad por mis ideas políticas uno a tratado de aplicar mas "el cooperativismo", que el capitalismo de quedarse con el plusvalor de otros, como se conoce. Hoy tenemos la condición en el capitalismo, que una vez que existe la acumulación de capital, este crea condiciones para multiplicarlo sin necesidad de pasar por el proceso productivo, concretamente en esta Argentina endeudada hasta los toletes, y habiendo liberado el control financiero del Estado, ha permitido que haya más inversiones especulativas que productivas como tal, el excedente de las ganancias obtenidas de los privados o se fugan a paraísos fiscales donde vegetan hasta nuevas oportunidades no necesariamente productivas o se reinvierten en la "Timba" financiera nacional para obtener nuevos dividendos, y esto hace que la mecánica productiva de un país se vea afectada pues lo créditos corrientes que se necesitan en la industria para producir y exportar se encarecen, además de romperse toda la cadena de pagos necesarios en el proceso productivo por la compra de materias primas, etc ( es mejor colocar el dinero a "plazo fijo" `por un mes, que pagar en tiempo y forma a un proveedor). Las inversiones externas que han llegado sin regulación estatal es mas financiera que productiva, y eso se debe a una concepción neoliberal de la economía donde "el mercado regula todo". Por otra parte el empresario, el PYME chico o mediano, en todo momento pero más en estas circunstancias descrita anteriormente, busca bajar sus costos a como sea, esto implica evasión al FISCO por un lado, y condiciones "negras" para los trabajadores, es decir se deja de poseer trabajadores en "blanco" con todos sus derechos, incluyendo sus aportes jubilatorios, vacaciones pagas, etc. Esto último se da más en condiciones de crisis, pero al menos mi experiencia en la Argentina me dice que entre un 30 y 50% de la fuerza laboral en estos 18 años ( donde hubo épocas de bonanzas económicas para el empresariado) se mantuvo en "negro", sin derechos. Ustedes dirán pero esto que tiene que ver con Cuba, bueno lo que digo es, que aun cuando no estás bloqueado como Cuba, y tienes todas las condiciones para hacer un "capitalismo teórico", es decir quedarte simplemente con el plusvalor y listo ( ya ganas flaco), el privado, el capital busca a toda costa maximizar como sea su ganancia, y sin regulación estatal honesta, el capital poco le importa el país, su gente y la madre en coche. Si los noruegos o holandeses lograron un "capitalismo teórico" con un estado fuerte distribuyendo la riqueza cobrando mas y buenos impuestos, les doy mis felicidades, la realidad latinoamericana, y el empresariado adjunto han dado muestras durante casi un siglo de que poco les importa ser Finlandia. Además aparece un tipo de "capitalista", o si lo quieren llamar un "empresariado" que vive de la obra pública estatal, financiada con el tesoro nacional y donde como todos conocemos, no se aplica las leyes de la competencia capitalista del más apto técnica y económicamente, sino la coima, el amiguismo y otras yerbas. El Estado cubano en manos de los trabajadores tiene la oportunidad histórica de utilizar todos los mecanismo económicos (no administrativos) a su alcance para que el privado en Cuba se comporte de acuerdo a lo que "teóricamente" se predica, gane señor, pero con "las reglas honestas" del Capital, pague bien a sus trabajadores, que tengan derechos a sus vacaciones y a sus aportes jubilatorios, pague al fisco lo que debe según sus ganancias y listo. Sobre el Fisco quiero decir algo, no es que porque algo sea privado o se mueva dentro de concepciones capitalistas dentro de una sociedad socialista se pongan impuestos excesivos que ahoguen la actividad, la idea es ser inteligente de manera tal que el estado de todos, se haga de recursos para distribuir pero permitiendo el desarrollo y la reinversión productiva de las ganancias obtenidas, con mecanismo económicos amigables y atrayentes, algo que se dice fácil pero que cuesta por lo que ya mencionamos. Igual considero como se plantea en algunos comentarios, que el cooperativismo me suena más "socialista" y puede lograr resultados importante para el desarrollo de Cuba, al menos lo prefiero, pero con una participación amplia en todos los sectores de la economía. Disculpen si me extendí sin aportar mucho, Saludos

Abolireste l’ora legale o solare? le UE chiede il vostro parere online

Sul sito dell'Unione Europea è attivo un sondaggio pubblico cui possono partecipare tutti i cittadini della UE per esprimere il loro parere sull'alternanza fra ora legale e ora solare, tema su cui si è recentemente dibattuto.

In Italia dal 1966 e (nei paesi della UE dal 1996) è attiva l'alternanza fra ora solare e ora legale, in base alla quale durante l'anno si spostano le lancette dell'orologio un'ora in avanti (marzo) e indietro (ottobre).

L'ora legale, che sposta le lancette avanti di un'ora, era stata introdotto principalmente per guadagnare maggiori minuti di luce a fronte di un risparmio energetico legato alla ridotta necessità di sfruttare fonti luminose durante i mesi di primavera ed estate.

La normativa riguardo l'ora legale è ora gestita dalla UE e negli scorsi mesi la sua reale necessità è stata messa in dubbio da alcuni rappresentanti degli Stati del nord Europa (che in primavera ed estate hanno ben pochi benefici dal cambio d'ora avendo a disposizione molte più ore di luce rispetto agli Stati del sud), secondo cui questa alternanza sarebbe dannosa per la salute delle persone in quanto altererebbe il normale ritmo circadiano delle persone.

Lo scorso febbraio era stata avanzata una richiesta dagli Stati nordici, con la Finlandia in prima linea, per abolire l'ora legale, ma la UE ha respinto la richiesta, promettendo però un approfondimento che potesse fra le altre cose confermare l'esistenza delle presunte conseguenze negative sulla salute dovute al cambio d'ora.

Abolireste l’ora legale o solare? le UE chiede il vostro parere online

Il sondaggio ora disponibile online si prefigge inoltre di raccogliere l'opinione delle persone, che potrebbe essere determinante per le future decisioni della UE.

"In risposta a una serie di richieste giunte da cittadini, dal Parlamento europeo e da alcuni Stati membri dell’UE, la Commissione ha deciso di esaminare il funzionamento delle attuali disposizioni relative all’ora legale e di valutare se sia il caso di modificarle o no" si legge sul sito." Per questo la Commissione intende raccogliere i punti di vista dei cittadini europei, delle parti interessate e degli Stati membri sulle attuali disposizioni dell’UE relative all’ora legale e su eventuali modifiche di tali disposizioni."

          Trudeau and our NATO allies brace for Trump’s arrival       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

OTTAWA—By now it’s a familiar pattern.

The U.S. president brays that his country is getting ripped off by its closest allies. And those allies — Canada included — try to figure out what to do about it.

That’s the predicament facing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he arrives in Brussels to meet with the other 28 members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The military alliance crucial to American leadership in the 20th century is now being raised by President Donald Trump as another example of anti-American unfairness on the world stage.

Weeks after he blasted Trudeau as “weak” and “dishonest” for protesting U.S. tariffs that have sparked a trade war amongst Western economic powers, Trump is now calling on Canada and other NATO partners to ramp up their own military spending in the alliance.

“The U.S. is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them. Not fair to the U.S. taxpayer,” Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning, as he embarked across the Atlantic to attend the NATO summit.

“NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. Very Unfair! (sic)” he wrote.

In response, Canada will hype its non-monetary contributions to NATO, including the decision this week to extend and expand its military presence in Latvia, where NATO countries have stationed soldiers in an effort to deter Russian aggression in Eastern Europe.

The hope is to deflect from the narrative that Canada is not contributing enough money to NATO’s shared defence. Canada committed four years ago to work towards a target of spending 2 per cent of GDP on defence by 2024, but is currently on pace to spend just 1.4 per cent.

In Latvia Tuesday, Trudeau voiced his “continued, unflinching support” for NATO, but ruled out jacking up Canada’s defence budget to meet the 2 per cent target that Trump is demanding.

“I think it’s an important metric, amongst many others, to gauge how countries are doing in terms of contributors to NATO,” Trudeau told reporters at the Adazi military base outside Riga.

“Ultimately, the more important metrics are always, ‘Are countries stepping up consistently with the capabilities that NATO needs? … Are we contributing the kinds of resources and demonstrating the kind of commitment to the alliance that always needs to be there?”

A source close to planning Canada’s position in Brussels said while Trump is an X factor in any international meeting, Trudeau still has to lay out his vision for the defence alliance.

“We have to ask ourselves the question, regardless of (Trump), NATO is a thing that exists and Canada is a member of it,” the source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, said. “So, whatever the narrative is going to be around the summit … we have to make decisions that we think are responsible and are in the national interest.

“I’m sure it will be part of the narrative for the next two days over whether or not these countries need to be spending more. And it’s something the United States has said before, under different presidents,” the source added.

Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa international affairs professor and Trudeau’s former foreign policy adviser, said Canada’s immediate goal with this week’s NATO summit will be damage control.

“(Trump’s) behaviour at the G7, combined with the messages he’s been sending in the last few days, suggest that he may take a very hard line with NATO allies,” Paris said.

The concern for Canada and European countries that make up the alliance — including Britain, Germany, France, and more — is that Trump’s bluster about spending commitments may presage an American pullback of its commitment to NATO, Paris said.

Those worries are amplified because of Trump’s upcoming tête-à-tête with Russian President Vladimir Putin, scheduled to take place in Finland next week, immediately after the NATO summit.

Trump told reporters as he left Washington on Tuesday that the meeting with Putin — leader of a country believed to have interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that is under international sanctions for its aggression in Eastern Europe — might be easier than the gathering with his country’s allies.

“Putin’s aggressive actions have given NATO a new lease on life,” Paris said. “But the question is whether the United States is going to stand with its allies.”

Irvin Studin, editor-in-chief of Global Brief magazine and senior fellow at the University of Toronto’s Munk School, said Trump’s stance on NATO should prompt Canada to explore its own strategy on the international stage.

He said Canadian foreign policy is too reliant on American assumptions, and that it would serve Canada to consider its evolving relationships with China and Russia as U.S. power diminishes in the global order.

“We actually don’t have our own theory of the world independent of NATO, independent of the U.S.,” Studin said. “That’s the more strategic question that we haven’t really explored as a country.”

But in the short term, Paris said Canada should respond to Trump’s call for more spending by pointing to its already-planned 73-per-cent increase in military expenditures over the next decade — which still wouldn’t hit the 2 per cent mark — and other contributions to NATO, such as the leadership in the alliance’s Baltic troop presence, and important roles that Canada has played in conflicts such as the war in Afghanistan and the 2011 intervention in Libya.

It remains to be seen whether Trudeau and other NATO leaders can placate the U.S. president this week. Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, cautioned Trump against pulling back from longstanding trans-Atlantic partnerships.

“Appreciate your allies,” he said. “After all, you don’t have that many.

Mrs. Toad and I, as you possibly know, went on something of an epic road trip at the end of July this year.

We took the ferry to Amsterdam and drove up through Germany to Denmark, through Sweden via the Volvo Museum, and into Norway, where we went all the way up the West Coast via the Trollstigen in the South, up through Molde, Kristiansund, Trondheim, Mo I Rana, through the Lofoten Islands to Tromsø. After a couple of days there we went East and South through Finland, took the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn, then drove through Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania into Russia where we spent our 10th wedding anniversary in Kaliningrad, on board a decommissioned oceanographic research vessel.

From there it was Poland and the Czech Republic to Vienna, where Mrs. Toad flew home and I carried on to even sillier adventures. But that is the subject for another podcast. For now, here are a bunch of songs from our Norway trip. Because these were all on mixtapes to play in the car whilst driving it's all actually surprisingly upbeat too.

Davina and the Vagabonds
Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national blues scene with their high-energy live shows, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers' commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. The band's latest recording, 2011's Black Cloud, was named one of the 10 best releases of the year by the Minneapolis Star & Tribune. In 2012 the band performed in 21 states and 6 countries in Europe, and the band is hard at work on a new record (due for release Fall 2013), spending time in the studio between tours.

So much more than just a blues act, DATV's shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina's voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don't suffice: Sowers is a true original.

Something unique to this "blues" project is the instrumentation. This rollicking quintet is held together by Sowers' keyboard playing, with acoustic bass, drums, and a spicy trumpet and trombone horn section. The group's focused, clean sound and emphasis on acoustic instruments is novel to both blues and jazz worlds, and sets the show closer to New Orleans than to Chicago. This has set the Vagabonds apart at blues festivals in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Sighisoara, Romania, Sierre, Switzerland, Kemi, Finland, and 2012's New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Davina and band made their debut at the Monterey Jazz Festival this September. Catch this one-of-a-kind live show while they are in town!

Naître en Finlande et mourir au Yémen, à 31 ans, au milieu du XVIIIe siècle, ce n’est pas donné à tout le monde. 

Pehr Forsskål était l’une des fiertés de la fac d’Uppsala ; docteur en théologie à 19 ans, il se tourna vers les langues orientales et les sciences naturelles, s’attira l’amitié du célèbre Linné, roi des naturalistes ; las, comme il complétait son bagage par de l’économie, sa dissertation sur cette matière, qui prônait, en latin, la liberté de la presse, lui valut les gros yeux du roi et le bannissement de la Suède, dont la Finlande, en 1759, n’était qu’une province. 

Il fallait rebondir. Linné le rencarda sur une expédition danoise, vantant auprès de son chef, le mathématicien Carsten Niebuhr, l’absolue précision des descriptions de son protégé pour tout ce qui touchait la faune et la flore, il ne ferait pas mieux lui-même. Adieu les forêts boréales, Forsskål fit voile vers l’Arabie. 

Jusqu’à sa mort de la malaria, le 11 juillet 1763, à Yarim, à l’ombre du mont Sumarah, il reconnut de nombreuses espèces et fit des collections superbes, pourvues de déterminations, en latin toujours, claires comme l’eau des fjords. Ce ne fut pas de la tarte pour Niebuhr, seul survivant de la mission, de les rapatrier dans son pays ; mais il tenait à ce que Pehr ne soit pas mort en vain. 

Il le serait pourtant. Les collections, remisées dans les caves infestées par les rats de l'université de Copenhague, y pourrirent tranquillement pendant un demi-siècle. Un curieux tenta alors d’ouvrir le grand herbier constitué par Pehr dans la Basse-Égypte ; il s’émietta entre ses mains. Il avait pu voir cependant qu’il n’apportait rien qu’on ne sût déjà, depuis le temps.

          Trump’s NATO attacks raise questions about its future      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s repeated tongue lashings of NATO allies and his friendly overtures to Russian President Vladimir Putin are stirring questions at home and abroad about Trump’s commitment to an Atlantic alliance that has been a pillar of U.S. security policy for more than half a century.

Might a reordering, or even a reduction, of U.S. forces in Europe be in the cards? Clues may come when Trump gathers Wednesday with NATO leaders in Brussels. The official agenda includes a plan for increasing the number of land, air and sea forces capable of reacting quickly in a European crisis, but overshadowing it are tensions generated by Trump’s view that the Europeans are slackers leaning unfairly on the U.S. military.

At the risk of deepening the rift with traditional allies, Trump will then hold a summit in Finland with Putin. On his departure from Washington on Tuesday, the president remarked that he “can’t say right now” if Putin is a friend or foe, but he predicted that his first summit with the Russian leader “may be the easiest” of all his meetings in Europe.

Such comments have stirred unease not just in Europe, but in Washington. A bipartisan resolution, set to be endorsed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, pointedly voices support for NATO as strategically important for the collective security of the trans-Atlantic region.

“Although the Atlantic alliance has weathered many crises over its lifetime, I now am concerned that the alliance will not survive Donald Trump,” said Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, who served as senior director for European affairs on the National Security Council during President Barack Obama’s first term.

“Because he isn’t arguing with allies about policy. He’s questioning the fundamental value of NATO to the United States. This antagonistic approach is generating an unprecedented debate in Europe and in Canada about whether the United States should be treated as friend or foe,” she said.

The demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 prompted a partial drawdown of U.S. forces from Europe, but every administration since then has concluded that keeping a U.S. military presence there was important for wider U.S. security, political and economic interests, and as a sign of solidarity with Europe. NATO has been a key part of the long U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, for example, and it is expected to agree this week to take a bigger training role in Iraq.

Trump, who has also questioned the U.S. military presence in Asia, is challenging those assumptions. That has been most plain in his antagonistic approach to Germany, the main host of U.S. forces in Europe. He has criticized the Germans for not spending enough on their own defense and has castigated the country for what he calls an overly liberal immigration policy. He also has placed Germany at the center of his complaints about a U.S.-European trade imbalance.

Derek Chollet, executive vice president of the German Marshall Fund of the United States, a think tank, says there is a clear connection between Trump’s criticism of German defense spending and reports that the Pentagon has undertaken a review of the cost of keeping troops in Europe.

“You cannot read this any other way” than looking at whether a U.S. troop reduction “is a feasible option for punishing them for their apparent lack of will,” said Chollet, who was the Pentagon’s assistant secretary for international security affairs during Obama’s second term.

He questions whether Trump fully understands the global significance of the U.S. military presence in Germany, including its hosting of the headquarters of U.S. Africa Command, which leads U.S. counterterrorism efforts in North Africa. Stuttgart also is headquarters for U.S. European Command. Among many other facilities, Germany hosts a U.S. military hospital at Landstuhl, the largest American hospital outside the United States.

In addition, NATO has proposed creating a new command in Germany to improve the way the alliance would move troops and equipment in a military crisis. Kay Bailey Hutchison, the U.S. ambassador to NATO, told reporters this plan will be approved at the Brussels summit.

Notwithstanding Trump’s grumbles about America shouldering the defense burden of Europe, his administration plans to boost spending to support it.

In the aftermath of Russia’s annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014 and its subsequent military incursion into eastern Ukraine, the Pentagon ramped up joint exercises in eastern and central Europe and spent billions on what it calls the European Deterrence Initiative aimed at Russia. After spending $3.4 billion on that initiative last year, the Trump administration has proposed boosting it to $6.5 billion in the 2019 budget year.

Trump’s Pentagon chief Jim Mattis is a former NATO commander and a leading advocate for sustaining the alliance, although he also has been pressuring allies to spend more on defense. Some of Mattis’ predecessors were even stronger in their criticisms. Robert Gates, for example, said in Brussels in 2011 that European penny-pinching and distaste for front-line combat in Afghanistan was putting the future of the alliance at risk. Gates said NATO faced a “dim if not dismal” future, not least because of what he called a diminishing patience in Congress for spending on Europe’s defense.

Trump, however, has taken this a step further by asserting that the Europeans are freeloaders taking advantage of American generosity.

In a new assessment of the NATO spending and burden-sharing issues, the Center for Strategic and International Studies called Trump’s language “uniquely divisive” and said NATO members’ contributions should be measured by more than simple budget numbers. The think tank was referring to the pledge at NATO’s 2014 summit meeting that members would “aim to move toward” spending at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense by 2024. By its count, only four of NATO’s 29 member countries met the 2 percent goal in 2017. They were the U.S., Greece, Britain and Estonia.

The report said a wider range of metrics should be used to measure an ally’s contributions to collective defense. It cited as an example Denmark, which has not met the 2 percent goal in recent years but has made important contributions in other ways, including with troop deployments to Afghanistan and by sacrificing significant trade with Russia by complying with sanctions.

          Nobel widow allowed to leave China after long house arrest      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
BERLIN – In the fall of 2010, Liu Xia traveled to a prison in northeast China to tell her husband, dissident intellectual Liu Xiaobo, that he had just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. That was the last time she left home as a free woman. Until now.

China allowed her to leave the country Tuesday, ending an eight-year house arrest that made the soft-spoken, chain-smoking 57-year-old poet with a shaven head a tragic icon known around the world.

As Liu Xia came off a plane in Helsinki, Finland, to transfer to a flight to Berlin, she spread her arms and grinned widely at a waiting photographer. A few hours later, she was seen getting into a car at Berlin’s Tegel airport.

The release of Liu Xia, who was never charged with a crime, results from years of campaigning by Western governments and activists and comes just days before the one-year anniversary Friday of Liu Xiaobo’s death. Liu’s 11-year prison sentence and his wife’s subsequent detention in her home had become glaring symbols of the authoritarian government’s determination to prevent the couple from inspiring other Chinese.

“Sister has already left Beijing for Europe at noon to start her new life,” wrote Liu Xia’s brother, Liu Hui, on a social media site. “Thanks to everyone who has helped and cared for her these few years. I hope from now on her life is peaceful and happy.”

Liu Xia arrived in Germany while Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is on an official state visit to the country, which is among the ones that urged Beijing to free her.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel meets regularly with dissidents during visits to China and had raised Liu Xia’s case with Chinese officials, including during a visit in May, people familiar with the matter said.

Liu’s close friends Gao Yu, a veteran journalist in Beijing, and Wu Yangwei, better known by his pen name Ye Du, said Liu Xia left on a Finnair flight Tuesday morning. Wu said he spoke to Liu Xia’s older brother, Liu Tong.

“Liu Xia has been kept isolated for so many years,” Wu said by phone from the southern city of Guangzhou. “I hope that being in a free country will allow Liu Xia to heal her long-standing traumas and wounds.”

A Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, said Liu left for Germany to seek “medical treatment on her own accord.”

Liu Xia is an accomplished artist and poet who reluctantly followed her husband into politics two decades ago. In 2009, China sentenced Liu Xiaobo to 11 years in prison on a charge of inciting subversion after he helped write Charter 08, a manifesto calling for political and economic liberalization.

Liu was awarded the Nobel on Oct. 8, 2010. As soon as Liu Xia returned home from visiting her husband in prison that month, she was confined in her fifth-floor apartment in Beijing and denied access to a phone and the internet.

At first, she was optimistic her confinement would be brief, telling AP reporters at the time: “I believe they won’t go on like this forever.”

But the days turned into months, and then years.

Guards ate and slept outside her door, driving away well-wishers, activists, journalists and diplomats – a slow-burning ordeal worse than death, she said in a rare recording that emerged in May.

“If I can’t leave, I’ll die in my home,” Liu Xia told her close friend Liao Yiwu, a writer who documented their phone conversation in an essay published in May.

Liu’s friends said her psychological condition had steadily deteriorated, particularly since the death of her husband.

“Xiaobo is gone, and there’s nothing in the world for me now,” Liu tearfully told Liao. “It’s easier to die than live. Using death to defy could not be any simpler for me.”

Liu’s release was rare good news for China’s beleaguered community of activists, who have been the focus of an expansive crackdown on civil society, rights lawyers and other independent groups the administration of President Xi Jinping deems a threat to the ruling Communist Party’s grip on power. The last time China let a high-profile political prisoner leave was in 2012, when blind activist Chen Guangcheng was allowed to fly to New York after escaping from house arrest and hiding for six days in the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.

Authorities are still holding Liu Xia’s brother, Liu Hui, who was convicted of fraud and imprisoned in a case supporters say was in retaliation against the attention given the Nobel laureate.

“This is fantastic news, something we have all been hoping against hope for a long time,” said Hu Jia, a family friend and Beijing-based activist. “But we still fear for Liu Hui, who is being kept in the country as a guarantee so that Liu Xia does not speak out abroad.”

The U.S. State Department said it welcomed the news that Chinese authorities “allowed her to leave China as she long wished,” but said it remains concerned about her brother and hopes he can join her in Germany.

China had criticized calls by Western governments for Liu’s release as interference in its domestic affairs and insisted that Liu Xia was free.

Last year, she appeared pale, gaunt and somber in images released by the authorities as she cared for Liu Xiaobo just before his death from liver cancer in a hospital under police custody. She was shown at his closely staged funeral dressed in black and wearing dark sunglasses as she clutched a photograph of her husband.

Liu Xiaobo was only the second Nobel Peace Prize winner to die in police custody, and human rights group say that shows the Communist Party’s increasingly hard line. The first, Carl von Ossietzky, died of tuberculosis in Germany in 1938 while jailed for opposing Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.

Frances Eve, a researcher for Chinese Human Rights Defenders, said Liu Xia’s release was likely intended to mute criticism around the anniversary of Liu’s death.

“I think the government wanted to try and save face, and make it seem as though it is a country ruled according to law when everything about her case has shown demonstrably that it is not,” Eve said. “She has been an unwilling symbol of the brutality of China’s treatment of human rights activists.”

          Trump's attacks on NATO raise questions about its future      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s repeated tongue lashings of NATO allies and his friendly overtures to Russian President Vladimir Putin are stirring questions at home and abroad about Trump’s commitment to an Atlantic alliance that has been a pillar of U.S. security policy for more than half a century.

Might a reordering, or even a reduction, of U.S. forces in Europe be in the cards? Clues may come when Trump gathers Wednesday with NATO leaders in Brussels. The official agenda includes a plan for increasing the number of land, air and sea forces capable of reacting quickly in a European crisis, but overshadowing it are tensions generated by Trump’s view that the Europeans are slackers leaning unfairly on the U.S. military.

At the risk of deepening the rift with traditional allies, Trump will then hold a summit in Finland with Putin. On his departure from Washington on Tuesday, the president remarked that he “can’t say right now” if Putin is a friend or foe, but he predicted that his first summit with the Russian leader “may be the easiest” of all his meetings in Europe.

Such comments have stirred unease not just in Europe, but in Washington. A bipartisan resolution, set to be endorsed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, pointedly voices support for NATO as strategically important for the collective security of the trans-Atlantic region.

“Although the Atlantic alliance has weathered many crises over its lifetime, I now am concerned that the alliance will not survive Donald Trump,” said Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, who served as senior director for European affairs on the National Security Council during President Barack Obama’s first term.

“Because he isn’t arguing with allies about policy. He’s questioning the fundamental value of NATO to the United States. This antagonistic approach is generating an unprecedented debate in Europe and in Canada about whether the United States should be treated as friend or foe,” she said.

The demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 prompted a partial drawdown of U.S. forces from Europe, but every administration since then has concluded that keeping a U.S. military presence there was important for wider U.S. security, political and economic interests, and as a sign of solidarity with Europe. NATO has been a key part of the long U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, for example, and it is expected to agree this week to take a bigger training role in Iraq.

Trump, who has also questioned the U.S. military presence in Asia, is challenging those assumptions. That has been most plain in his antagonistic approach to Germany, the main host of U.S. forces in Europe. He has criticized the Germans for not spending enough on their own defense and has castigated the country for what he calls an overly liberal immigration policy. He also has placed Germany at the center of his complaints about a U.S.-European trade imbalance.

Derek Chollet, executive vice president of the German Marshall Fund of the United States, a think tank, says there is a clear connection between Trump’s criticism of German defense spending and reports that the Pentagon has undertaken a review of the cost of keeping troops in Europe.

“You cannot read this any other way” than looking at whether a U.S. troop reduction “is a feasible option for punishing them for their apparent lack of will,” said Chollet, who was the Pentagon’s assistant secretary for international security affairs during Obama’s second term.

He questions whether Trump fully understands the global significance of the U.S. military presence in Germany, including its hosting of the headquarters of U.S. Africa Command, which leads U.S. counterterrorism efforts in North Africa. Stuttgart also is headquarters for U.S. European Command. Among many other facilities, Germany hosts a U.S. military hospital at Landstuhl, the largest American hospital outside the United States.

In addition, NATO has proposed creating a new command in Germany to improve the way the alliance would move troops and equipment in a military crisis. Kay Bailey Hutchison, the U.S. ambassador to NATO, told reporters this plan will be approved at the Brussels summit.

Notwithstanding Trump’s grumbles about America shouldering the defense burden of Europe, his administration plans to boost spending to support it.

In the aftermath of Russia’s annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014 and its subsequent military incursion into eastern Ukraine, the Pentagon ramped up joint exercises in eastern and central Europe and spent billions on what it calls the European Deterrence Initiative aimed at Russia. After spending $3.4 billion on that initiative last year, the Trump administration has proposed boosting it to $6.5 billion in the 2019 budget year.

Trump’s Pentagon chief Jim Mattis is a former NATO commander and a leading advocate for sustaining the alliance, although he also has been pressuring allies to spend more on defense. Some of Mattis’ predecessors were even stronger in their criticisms. Robert Gates, for example, said in Brussels in 2011 that European penny-pinching and distaste for front-line combat in Afghanistan was putting the future of the alliance at risk. Gates said NATO faced a “dim if not dismal” future, not least because of what he called a diminishing patience in Congress for spending on Europe’s defense.

Trump, however, has taken this a step further by asserting that the Europeans are freeloaders taking advantage of American generosity.

In a new assessment of the NATO spending and burden-sharing issues, the Center for Strategic and International Studies called Trump’s language “uniquely divisive” and said NATO members’ contributions should be measured by more than simple budget numbers. The think tank was referring to the pledge at NATO’s 2014 summit meeting that members would “aim to move toward” spending at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense by 2024. By its count, only four of NATO’s 29 member countries met the 2 percent goal in 2017. They were the U.S., Greece, Britain and Estonia.

The report said a wider range of metrics should be used to measure an ally’s contributions to collective defense. It cited as an example Denmark, which has not met the 2 percent goal in recent years but has made important contributions in other ways, including with troop deployments to Afghanistan and by sacrificing significant trade with Russia by complying with sanctions.

          Nicolato ufficializza i 20 convocati per l’Europeo: le gare dell’Italia in diretta su Rai Sport      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Il tecnico Paolo Nicolato ha reso noti oggi i nomi dei 20 convocati per la Fase finale del Campionato Europeo Under 19, competizione che vedrà l’Italia esordire lunedì 16 luglio con i padroni di casa della Finlandia e che si concluderà domenica 29 luglio, giorno della finale.  Il torneo continentale sarà seguito dalle telecamere di Rai Sport, che trasmetterà in diretta le tre partite della Nazionale nella fase a gironi, le semifinali e la finale.

Gli Azzurrini si raduneranno a Venezia giovedì 12 luglio per fare scalo la mattina di venerdì ad Helsinki e poi raggiungere Vaasa, sede operativa del Campionato Europeo di categoria. “Cercheremo di dare come sempre il massimo – dichiara Nicolato -  vogliamo giocare un calcio propositivo e i ragazzi dovranno essere bravi a mettere in mostra le loro qualità”. Soddisfatto del lavoro svolto sinora, il tecnico non nasconde alcune preoccupazioni: “Le due incognite – avverte - riguardano il nostro stato di forma e la superficie di gioco, il sintetico: sono contento di come ci siamo allenati in occasione dei due stage e, dato il contesto (i club stanno cominciando adesso la preparazione e diversi ragazzi sono stati alle prese con gli esami di maturità, ndr) meglio di così non potevamo fare. Delle tre avversarie che affronteremo nel girone di qualificazione due, la Finlandia e la Norvegia, sono già nel pieno dei rispettivi campionati.

          Rinascita o inizio della fine: a Bruxelles e a Helsinki Trump deciderà il futuro della Nato      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Più sancire un "nuovo inizio", può scandire l'"inizio della fine". La fine dell'Alleanza atlantica. Sancita nei fatti, anche se non formalizzata. Fatti che potrebbero dipanarsi in due tempi e in due capitali diverse del Vecchio continente: prima a Bruxelles, successivamente ad Helsinki. In ambedue i momenti, uno dei protagonisti assoluti sarà Donald Trump. Nel vertice Nato, che si apre domani nella capitale belga, e nell'attesissimo faccia a faccia, lunedì prossimo in Finlandia, tra The Donald e il suo omologo russo. Vladimir Putin. La vigilia del summit bruxellese è segnata da una crescente tensione tra il presidente Usa e i non amati alleati europei. Trump chiederà ai partner di portare la spesa militare interna al 2% del Pil prima del 2024, ovvero la scadenza promessa dai membri della Nato nel 2014.

Secondo le ultime statistiche della Nato, la spesa militare dei Paesi membri europei e del Canada è aumentata in questi ultimi anni: dell'1,8% nel 2015, del 3,3% nel 2016, del 4,3% nel 2017. Ciò detto, l'organizzazione militare ha stabilito che ciascun paese membro dovrebbe spendere nel settore della difesa almeno il 2% del proprio prodotto interno lordo. L'Italia spende l'1,13% del Pil. Gli Stati Uniti oltre il 3,5%. Tre Paesi europei spendono meno dell'1,0%: la Spagna, il Belgio e il Lussemburgo. Gli europei spiegano a ragione che maggiore sicurezza si traduce anche in aiuti allo sviluppo, per esempio in Africa. Stati Uniti a parte, il traguardo del 2% - come ha ricordato recentemente il segretario generale dell'Alleanza Jens Stoltenberg - è stato finora tagliato solo da cinque Paesi (Grecia, Regno Unito, Estonia, Romania e Polonia) a cui si dovrebbero aggiungere quest'anno la Lituania e la Lettonia. L'Italia e altri 20 Paesi sono ancora lontani dall'obiettivo. Il premier italiano Giuseppe Conte, che ha in calendario una missione a Washington entro breve, ha però invitato a tenere in considerazione, nel conto della spesa, quanto – e non è poco – il nostro Paese investe nelle missioni all'estero. Quello delle spese militari, cavallo di battaglia di Trump fin dalla sua campagna elettorale, è senza dubbio il tema più scottante sul tavolo del summit chiamato anche a dare una nuova prospettiva al ruolo dell'Alleanza. Una riunione a cui i leader degli altri grandi Paesi arrivano avendo ancora in mente il voltafaccia improvviso del tycoon americano al G7 canadese. quindi prevedibile che ci sarà un'azione congiunta per cercare di evitare che a Bruxelles si ripeta una scena simile. Ma secondo le previsioni della vigilia, il risultato di questo sforzo, che sarà condotto in primo luogo dal presidente francese Emmanuel Macron e dalla cancelliera Angela Merkel, è tutt'altro che scontato.

"Gli Stati Uniti stanno spendendo molto più a favore della Nato di qualsiasi altro paese membro – ha scritto su Twitter lunedì Trump –. Non è giusto, non è accettabile. Anche se questi Paesi hanno aumentato i loro contributi, devono fare di più". Qualche giorno prima in una riunione politica aveva detto: "Lo dirò alla Nato: dovrete iniziare a pagare i conti. Gli Stati Uniti non si occuperanno di tutto, tanto più che ci stanno massacrando sul fronte commerciale". Twitter e lettere: ambedue "esplosivi". Le accuse di Trump, come riporta il New York Times, sono contenute in una serie di lettere inviate nel corso dell'ultimo mese ai leader di alcuni Paesi, tra cui Angela merkel. In quest'ultima missiva il presidente americano è stato severissimo con la Germania. L'ha accusata di "minare la sicurezza dell'alleanza atlantica" e di rappresentare un cattivo esempio, spingendo altri alleati a non rispettare i propri impegni per quel che riguarda le spese militari. "È sempre più difficile - scrive il tycoon alla cancelliera - giustificare agli americani il perché alcuni Paesi non condividono il peso della sicurezza nella Nato, mentre i soldati americani continuano a sacrificare le loro vite all'estero o a tornare a casa gravemente feriti". Nelle sue dichiarazioni, il presidente Usa ha lasciato anche intendere che al vertice di Bruxelles potrebbe annunciare una riduzione dell'impegno americano in Europa (attualmente gli Stati Uniti mantengono una forza permanente di 32 mila soldati in Germania. E infatti il suo segretario alla Difesa, James Mattis, nelle ultime settimane ha iniziato un duro lavoro sotterraneo per rassicurare i suoi omologhi. Questa mattina Nato e Unione Europea hanno firmato un nuovo accordo di collaborazione. E il presidente del Consiglio Ue Donald Tusk non ha perso occasione per avvertire Trump: "Gli Usa non hanno nessun miglior alleato dell'Ue e Trump che da un po' di tempo ormai critica la Ue quasi quotidianamente lo deve ricordare domani al vertice Nato ma soprattutto quando incontrerà il presidente russo Putin a Helsinki". Altri due temi che caratterizzeranno la due giorni bruxellese saranno, l'Iran e i rapporti con la Federazione Russa, con i componenti più russofobici dell'Alleanza, tra cui la Polonia e i Paesi Baltici, che premeranno per un maggiore presidio, sotto forma di investimenti in sicurezza, in funzione anti- russa. Sarà un passaggio chiave anche per l'Italia, con il governo gialloverde che dovrà "decidere da che parte stare": se da quella dei russi, in virtù della vicinanza più volte espressa dal vicepremier e ministro dell'Interno Matteo Salvini e confermata nel contratto di governo nel passaggio sulla cancellazione delle sanzioni comminate a Mosca dopo la crisi in Ucraina; o se confermare la "linea classica", vicina agli interessi statunitensi. Per Angela Merkel il summit della Nato dovrebbe focalizzarsi proprio sulla minaccia rappresentata dalla Russia "Le sfide per la Nato sono cambiate drasticamente negli ultimi anni", avverte la cancelliera tedesca in una dichiarazione video pubblicata sabato, sottolineando che dopo l'annessione della penisola di Crimea e le sue attività militari nell'Ucraina orientale, è importante "concentrarsi maggiormente sulla difesa dell'Alleanza." Il rischio è che Trump, dopo l'incontro con Putin, possa intraprendere azioni non coordinate con la Nato "Certo, vogliamo avere una relazione responsabile con la Russia", afferma Merkel nella dichiarazione, aggiungendo "questa è la ragione per cui continueremo ad avere colloqui nel Consiglio Nato-Russia". Se le questioni riguardanti il budget vedono per lo più contrapporsi i due blocchi Usa-Ue, sulle priorità strategiche ogni gruppo di paesi, all'interno della stessa Europa, tira acqua al proprio mulino. Gli Stati dell'Est Europa (Baltici e Polonia in particolare), allarmati sempre di più dal comportamento del vicino russo, vogliono mantenere alta l'attenzione su questo fianco. Questi vedono nel puntellamento del fianco sud, attraverso l'operazione Sea Guardian, una distrazione dal vero fronte potenzialmente caldo, quello orientale. Inoltre la creazione e lo sviluppo di una strategia autonoma di difesa europea, fortemente sostenuta da Parigi, si tradurrebbe nella fine della protezione americana, con grande preoccupazione delle cancellerie dell'Europa orientale. Questo lento processo di spostamento delle priorità militari segnala quindi l'inizio dell'abbandono delle logiche della Guerra fredda, quintessenza dell'organizzazione. Se da un lato i Baltici vengono in qualche modo tranquillizzati attraverso il rinforzamento dei quattro battaglioni di stanza nella regione, dall'altro Bruxelles punta più su un approccio prettamente diplomatico con il gigante russo, se non addirittura di dialogo, come cercato da sempre, per esempio, dai governi italiani. Con la speranza di Roma di riaprire perfino la scottante questione delle sanzioni. Ma a Bruxelles non si preannuncia "solo" un braccio di ferro Usa-Ue, ma anche uno geopolitico Est-Sud (Europa). L'Italia chiederà al vertice Nato di Bruxelles un "maggiore impegno verso il fianco sud" dell'Alleanza quindi verso il Mediterraneo, e si aspetta in tal senso un potenziamento dell'hub di Napoli. Ad annunciarlo, alla vigilia del summit, è il ministro degli Affari esteri e della cooperazione internazionale, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, in comunicazioni sulle linee programmatiche del suo dicastero alle commissioni congiunte Affari esteri ed emigrazione di Camera e Senato. "Chiederemo con forza al vertice della Nato un riequilibrio dell'impegno dell'Alleanza atlantica verso il fianco Sud della medesima: questo vuol dire Mediterraneo", rimarca il capo della diplomazia italiana. "Dobbiamo avere un eguale impegno dell'Alleanza atlantica verso Est e verso Sud", ha aggiunto il titolare della Farnesina, sottolineando come la Nato non sia estranea anche alla questione di flussi migratori. "Ci sono molti elementi che portano a ritenere che in questi battelli che portano migranti verso il nostro continente ci siano anche dei combattenti di ritorno e minacce terroristiche", annota Moavero Milanesi. "In questo quadro dovrebbe esser confermato il rafforzamento del cosiddetto hub Nato di Napoli per il comando del fianco Sud, con l'aggiunta di tutti i vari elementi legati al potenziamento della rete informativa e della valutazione delle minacce, anche con un impegno maggior di personale e di mezzi", ha aggiunto il capo della diplomazia italiana. Su questo fronte, confidano all'HuffPost fonti diplomatiche a Bruxelles, è in discussione un rafforzamento del partenariato Nato con Tunisia e Giordania e forse l'avvio di cooperazioni con la Libia, per consolidare le forze armate dei Paesi mediterranei in funzione di anti-terrorismo, controllo del territorio e dei confini.

Il forte contributo dell'Italia alle missioni internazionali consente di "bilanciare" il minor contributo finanziario alle spese militari dell'Alleanza, puntualizza ancora Moavero Milanesi. Il ministro ha aggiunto di aver chiesto a Jens Stoltenberg, segretario generale della Nato, di poter conteggiare nel 2 % del Pil chiesto dagli Stati Uniti come contributo degli alleati alla spesa per la Nato la quota nazionale che andrò al bilancio dell'Unione europea per gli stanziamenti della difesa. Sul fronte europeo Moavero ha spiegato di non riuscire a vedere alternative "rispetto a un'attiva partecipazione dell'Italia nel processo di integrazione europea. Vedo male l'isolazionismo e i tentativi di puro ostacolo". "Cerchiamo piuttosto di farci portatori di proposte, anche eterodosse", per migliorare il meccanismo europeo, ha aggiunto. Anche perché "si sa bene cosa si lascia, si sa meno bene cosa si trova e lo dimostra anche a quanto sta succedendo in Gran Bretagna". I sovranisti di casa nostra sono avvisati.

C’è un proverbio dalle mie parti che recita: “chi si abbuffa non può credere a chi è digiuno”. Una frase calzante per il Ministro Poletti che, durante le sue esternazioni sui giovani, non sa cosa sta succedendo, non capisce la frustrazione di chi cerca lavoro e fa prima a invecchiare che lavorare. Poletti tempo fa aveva suscitato parecchi rumors per una frase di tanti ragazzi costretti a cercare fortuna altrove: “Giovani italiani che vanno all’estero? Meglio non averli tra i piedi”; e come se non bastasse nemmeno oggi si smentisce. Parlando con gli studenti dell’istituto Manfredi Tanari a Bologna ha affermato: “piuttosto che mandare curriculum in giro meglio giocare a calcetto” e, a proposito dell’alternanza scuola lavoro il nostro jambon è convinto che anche a fare lavori manuali come preparare un caffè s’apre un mondo. Sarebbe interessante capire se anche il figlio di Poletti gioca a calcetto invece di inviare curricula e se i lavori di manovalanza sono un’eccellenza per poter lavorare. Il ministro, come si sa, ricopre un incarico con il deretano attaccato alla poltrona e certamente non vuole rendersi conto di cosa sta succedendo ai nostri giovani, costretti a lasciare il Paese per campare ,invece di vivere. Poletti non ha ben chiara la situazione e non avendo avuto esperienza diretta o indiretta non ha ancora compreso che fuori si lavora per campare, per cui alla fine le speranze si infrangono come onda sugli scogli e si finisce per essere sbattuti a riva come naufraghi. Bisognerebbe che Poletti ascoltasse questa generazione priva anche della capacità di sognare. Molti ragazzi resistono fuori un anno. Il tempo di capire che all’estero l’unica possibilità è rimanere cameriere a vita, o un friggi polli in qualche fast food, altro che aprirsi un mondo. Abbiamo fatto della precarietà il cavallo di battaglia in questo Paese a misura di caste, lobby, governanti incapaci con il pallino di occupare un ministero nei palazzi, mantenendosi la poltrona, perché dono regale per volere del buon Dio, ragion per cui i sudditi devono obbedire senza mettere in discussione le capacità di chi sta sopra di loro. E come se non bastasse, dopo l’esternazione del “toglietevi dai piedi, vil razza dannata”, oggi c’è il secondo exploit: “impegnatevi a giocare sui campi di calcetto invece di inviare currucula”. Come raccatta palle i giovani hanno un futuro garantito, o come addetti alle pulizie negli spogliatoi dei campioni. Basta respirare l’aria dei fuori classe e si apre un mondo sul nulla. Viene incoraggiata la schiavitù, l’ignoranza, mentre le società sportive macinano utili trasformando il calcio in multinazionali del profitto. Campi di calcio costruiti in apposite aree, con annessi centri commerciali per comprare la maglia dell’idolo del momento o abbigliamento sportivo. La sa lunga il Ministro che adesso farà marcia indietro dicendo di essere stato frainteso. Ciò che ha detto purtroppo rimane e non si tratta di fare un processo alle intenzioni, anzi avendo la vista lunga e la pancia piena sa dove andare a parare, come preparare il terreno sferzando i ragazzi e incoraggiandoli a non avere tante pretese. Intanto i loro figli gongolano, ricoprono posti di tutto rispetto, perché sono sempre i migliori. E sfido io, hanno alle spalle i loro papà da un milione di dollari capaci di pensare ad apparecchiare tavole imbandite e lasciare digiuni gli altri. Meglio mandarli altrove i ragazzi o abbandonarli nella precarietà totale. Alla fine i giovani migliori saranno quelli che ci governeranno, così bravi da copiare tesi (vedi la ministra Madia), fare leggi pasticcione bocciate ma che a loro garantiscono la fetta migliore se non tutta la torta.

La Nouvelle Académie suédoise, créée il y a quelques jours pour qu'un Prix Nobel de Littérature alternatif soit malgré tout remis en 2018 après l'annulation de la distinction officielle, a dévoilé la liste de ses auteurs et autrices nommés. 46 auteurs, en majorité de Suède et des États-Unis, mais aussi trois Français, Nina Bouraoui, Maryse Condé et Édouard Louis.

Le report du Prix Nobel de Littérature 2018 pour l'année 2019 a choqué un certain nombre de personnalités de la culture suédoise, qui ont décidé, début juillet, de créer une Nouvelle Académie, afin de décerner un Prix Nobel de Littérature alternatif. « Nous avons fondé la Nouvelle Académie pour rappeler à tous que la littérature et la culture dans leur ensemble doivent promouvoir la démocratie, la transparence, l'empathie et le respect, sans privilège, arrogance ou sexisme », ont indiqué les créateurs de cette organisation au moment de sa création.

 

Après avoir lancé un appel aux candidatures, avec des noms d'auteurs et d'autrices du monde entier fournis par les bibliothécaires suédois, une liste de 46 noms a fait son apparition sur le site de la Nouvelle Académie. On y retrouve des noms régulièrement cités pour le Prix Nobel de Littérature, comme Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Joyce Carol Oates, Amos Oz ou encore Haruki Murakami (la liste complète en fin d'article). 

 

On découvre également les noms de trois auteurs français : Nina Bouraoui, née en 1967, Maryse Condé, née en 1937, et Édouard Louis, né en 1992.

 

D'autres noms, dans cette liste, détonnent, car il est peu probable que l'Académie suédoise les ait elle-même sélectionnés dans sa liste du Nobel de Littérature : on retrouve ainsi J.K. Rowling, l'autrice de Harry Potter, et Neil Gaiman, alors que l'Académie Nobel est réputée tourner le dos à la littérature de genre.

 

Scandale à l'Académie Nobel : Jean-Claude Arnault
sera jugé pour viol

 

Pour rappel, le Prix Nobel de Littérature 2018 a été reporté, événement rarissime, après un scandale lié à des agressions sexuelles perpétrées dans l'entourage du jury du Prix Nobel, et passées sous silence.

 
Il est possible de voter en désignant trois auteurs sur le site de la Nouvelle Académie. Le nom du lauréat ou de la lauréate sera dévoilé le 14 octobre 2018.

Restored Republic via a GCR as of July 11, 2018

Compiled 11 July 12:18 am EST by Judy Byington, MSW, LCSW, ret. CEO, Child Abuse Recovery, Author, “Twenty Two Faces,” Byington’s Before It’s News articles on an international Cabal Vatican-organized Child Exploitation Ring: http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor/pages/243/590/stories.html

The below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to decide whether or not it is valid. Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.

Judy Note: After reviewing the below it is my opinion that the RV was likely to be released before our present Cabal fiat financial system collapsed, though there appeared to be a temporary blackout on intel on it. Rumor was that the GCR (aka HSBC Zim redemptions, along with private exchanges) began yesterday July 9 in Hong Kong and such was working it’s way to the US. Some claimed they had received their monies for Humanitarian Projects.

For security reasons all Zim holders (as well as private exchanges) might be completed before the general public was allowed to exchange. Public exchanges were said scheduled to begin Aug. 1, a day after Zimbabwe elections on July 30 and after the gold standard GCR was expected to be formally announced.

In Aug. we might look for Clinton Server content release, along with the beginning of mass arrests; Sept. may find the unsealing of Indictments, Grand Juries, official government disclosure on 9/11 and more mass arrests. If the gold-standard announcement was not already made, it could be announced in Oct., along with prosecutions on elites, with charges that included Treason. Hopefully Nov. would see children rescued from international trafficking rings, US Troops coming home and a Military Parade on Election Day Nov. 11 designed to be used as a cover for a Washington DC Lockdown because of Tribunals on crooked politicians. The Trials should wrap up in Dec. 2018.

A. A Possible Timeline:

Fulford: “According to Pentagon sources the asset-backed Quantum Financial System is ready, but awaits the Trump-Putin Summit, the Global Financial Reset, mass arrests and geo-political resolutions.”

Wed, Thurs. July 11, 12: Trump scheduled to meet with NATO.

Thurs. July 12 - The Central Bank of Iraq was having mandatory training for all private banks that concluded on Wed. July 12.

Fri. July 13: Trump scheduled to meet with British PM Theresa May and the Queen where all assets stolen by the Crown and other Cabal would be returned to the people.

Mon. July 16: Trump and Putin Summit in Finland.

Monday July 30: Zimbabwe’s election, after which an announcement of their Gold-Standard and subsequent RV, which was expected to be a lynchpin for the U.S. to announce their Gold-Standard and officially set off the Global Currency Reset, plus implementation of GESARA law. Zimbabwe Bank Memo Effective 9th July 2018

Aug, Sept, Oct, Fulford, Pentagon: “There would be a new wave of mass arrests in August, official government disclosure about 9/11 in September, and a major economic announcement in October.”

B. Timeline According to Q:

Aug: The Great Awakening: Clinton Server contents released to public

Sept: Indictments unsealed, Grand Juries formed, along with mass arrests

Oct: Sessions starts prosecutions, with charges of Treason at end of month

Nov: Military Parade Cover for Washington DC Lockdown and Tribunals, US Troops come home, Trafficked Children rescue.

Dec: Trials wrap up

C. July 10 2018 The Big Call, Bruce: Thebigcall.net: 712-770-4016 pin123456#

1. In Iraq the ATM machines with the lower denominations were being used with a Dinar to US Dollar rate of $6 to $7.

2. Dr. Shabbi has said that the Dinar could support a rate of up to $16.00.

3. Abadi has officially been welcomed as the PM of Iraq.

4. More than 142 and 164Traunches of $900 Quadrillion each have moved around the world, been confirmed and all but a few have been distributed. The last eight sets of two were distributed this morning to various paymasters. All Traunches should be complete by 2 am EST tomorrow morning July 11.

5. There was a possibility of getting started this afternoon July 10, but there were security concerns. They addressed over 80% of those concerns by this afternoon and 100% should be completed tonight sometime, July 10.

6. For our own security the NSA would be tracking us back and forth from our redemption center appointments via our cellphones.

7. The rates on the screens were blinking until 2 pm EST today July 10, when the rates became solid.

D. July 10 2018 2:19 pm EST Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure: GCR/RV Intel Alert for July 10, 2018 Operation Disclosure (Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on rumors/leaks from several sources which may or may not be truthful or accurate.)

1. All nations were being reformed from the inside to support GESARA law.

2. Currently the Alliance was in the process of exposing the Cabal even further, which would result in a temporary blackout of intel.

3. According to sources, there was motive to release the RV before the old Cabal financial system went into a downward spiral, for a crash of the current financial system would cause mass civil unrest. Preventing such was the Alliance's main priority.

4. Direct deposits have been scheduled for QFS accounts of currency holders. This was being done in order for currency holders to quickly access funds once the RV event officially began.

5. The method of exchanging/redeeming your currencies remained unclear - bank appointment, or quantum mechanics? Be prepared for anything.

E. July 9 2018 11:49 pm EST, Zap: "Wonderful Week" - ZAP Update - The Office of POOFness - 7.9.18

1. The release is done for us. Tomorrow July 10 lawyers begin the primary wires out to recipients – one of which is us.

2. The Trust is still getting the new systems fixed up.

3. This is now measured in days and hours, not weeks and months.

4. Soon we should be hearing RV news that is really good.

Top Brexit official resigned, Boris Johnson resigned right after the top Brexit official. The Brexit is in trouble and it might not happen. China orders its news agencies not to use aggressive language against Trump. The Fed has really turned up the collapse plan. They are now predicting inflation is going to hit. The Fed has now removed its data, says the yield curve is not important and the MSM at the same time is pushing how the economy is getting worse and we will see a recession coming very soon.

          Nvidia sfrutta l’intelligenza artificiale per rimuovere grana e filigrane dalle foto      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

rimuovere filigrane

La filigrana che utility e applicazioni di ritocco varie consentono di creare (es. questa per Mac), è utile per aggiungere elementi quali il copyright, proteggere immagini, indicare l'autore di una foto, incorporare elementi vari proteggendo immagini e video realizzati da artisti, designer e fotografi.

Nvidia potrebbe rendere il lavoro di protezione con la filigrana più complicato per via di un meccanismo che sfrutta l'intelligenza artificiale per rimuovere automaticamente artefatti da una fotografia, comprese diciture e filigrane, indipendentemente da quanto queste siano complesse.

Eliminazione rumore

Sfruttando il deep learning, una tecnica di Machine Learning che utilizza algoritmi in grado di simulare il cervello umano per apprendere e svolgere una determinata attività, ricercatori di Nvidia, del MIT e della finlandese Università Aalto, sono riusciti ad addestrare un’intelligenza artificiale a rimuovere rumore digitale, l'effetto grana e altri artefatti visivi dopo uno studio che ha messo a confronto due differenti versioni di una foto. Dopo cinquantamila campioni, l'AI ha capito come funziona il meccanismo, imparando a ripulire le foto meglio di un esperto di fotoritocco con anni di esperienza alle spalle.

https://youtu.be/pp7HdI0-MIo

Vari i possibili campi di applicazione: dalla pulizia automatica del rumore nelle foto di cieli stellati scattate con lunghe esposizioni, fino ad applicazioni nel campo dell'imaging a risonanza magnetica che richiede lunghi lavori di post-produzione per arrivare alla diagnostica partendo da rilevamento, la stadiazione e la localizzazione. Tra gli aspetti negativi di questa tecnica che sfrutta l'intelligenza artificiale, la facilità con la quale sarà possibile rimuovere watermak dalle foto, vanificando lo sforzo di chi spera in una protezione per il proprio lavoro. A questo indirizzo, i dettagli tecnici.

Title: Dynamics on Social Networks: A Tale of Three ProcessesSpeaker: Romualdo Pastor-SatorrasLocation: 177 Huntington Avenue, 11th Floor, Boston, Massachusetts 02115AbstractThe patterns of social interactions between human beings or social animals can be represented by complex networks exhibiting a wealth of distinctive topological properties. Among those, recent research activity has been focused on understanding their heterogeneous character, their temporal properties, or the multiplex nature of the interactions. In this talk, we will review the main topological features exhibited by social networks defined by human or animal social interactions, focusing on the effects that such features have on dynamical processes developing on top of them. In particular, we will consider three main scenarios: Searching in temporal multiplex networks; the spread of information in polarized political discussion networks; and flocking dynamics in social animal networks.About the SpeakerRomualdo Pastor-Satorras (Barcelona, 1967) received a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona in 1995.

          Comment on The Political Representation of the European People by PlutoniumKun      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I agree very much with the conclusion that a unified European left is very important, but it seems to me that there are many statements in the article that are little more than confirmation bias, for example: <blockquote>It is moving from one country to another, but the formula is the same: the effects of austerity measures on the poor and middle classes as well as the development of social and territorial inequalities are the logical result of so-called free and undistorted competition. These elements crystallise within the malaise created by the technocratic government of the EU and its member states. They foster nationalism, xenophobia and a loathing for democracy.</blockquote> There is in reality very little obvious connection between austerity and the rise of xenophobia and the far right. The far right has risen in countries which have gotten away comparatively lightly, such as Denmark, Finland, Poland and Germany, while countries which have suffered severely, such as the Baltic States, Ireland and Spain have seen relatively little electoral growth in those groups. Many minority nationalist parties such as those in Spain and the UK (Sinn Fein and SNP) are very pro EU and often pro immigrant. I think all the evidence suggests that national politics is just that - national politics. The EU rates very low in most peoples concerns when voting. And when people are impacted by bad EU (or more precisely, Eurozone) policies, they are more likely to blame their own governments for it (except of course in England, where the exact opposite seems to happen).
          Trump heads to Europe, says Putin ‘easiest’ of his meetings      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BRUSSELS – With Europe’s wary eyes upon him, President Donald Trump launched a weeklong trip there on Tuesday with harsh criticism for NATO allies and predicted the “easiest” leg of his journey would be his scheduled sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As he departed the White House for a four-nation European tour, Trump did little to reassure allies fretting over the risk of damage he could do to the 69-year-old trans-Atlantic mutual defense pact and his potential embrace of Putin during a summit in Helsinki.

Trump said Tuesday he “can’t say right now” if Putin is a friend or foe, but called him a “competitor.” The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to boost Trump’s candidacy, and warns of further attempts at interference both in the 2018 midterms and in European elections.

Trump arrived in Brussels on the eve of the NATO summit after repeated attacks on the pact. He told reporters in Washington before leaving that “Frankly it helps them a lot more than it helps us” and then later tweeted from Air Force One that he may demand reimbursements from the European member nations.

Trump has been pressing NATO countries to fulfill their goal of spending that 2 percent of their gross domestic products on defense by 2024. During his presidential campaign, he suggested he might only come to the defense of NATO nations that fulfilled their obligation. And a year ago, during his first visit to its Belgium headquarters, Trump initially declined to explicitly support the organization’s defense agreement.

Trump, who landed in Belgium during the middle of the soccer-mad nation’s World Cup semifinals match, will later head to London, where Prime Minister Theresa May’s government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

European Council President Donald Tusk said on Tuesday in a message to Trump that “it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem.” Tusk recalled that the Europeans are spending more than Russia and as much as China on defense. NATO estimates that 15 members, or just over half, will meet the benchmark by 2024 based on current trends.

“Getting ready to leave for Europe. First meeting – NATO. The U.S. is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, adding: “Not fair to the U.S. taxpayer. On top of that we lose $151 Billion on Trade with the European Union. Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!”

On Monday he’d tweeted the situation was “not fair, nor is it acceptable,” and insisted that NATO benefits Europe “far more than it does the U.S.”

He added: “NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. Very Unfair!”

Trump, who has compared the sentiment that underpinned the Brexit vote to leave the EU to his own election, will be making his maiden presidential trip to Britain at a fraught time for May. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned within hours of each other in protest of her plan. Trump said might meet with Johnson in the UK despite his resignation.

Trump’s visit is expected to attract large protests in London and elsewhere in Britain.

Trump’s weeklong trip to Europe will continue with a stop in Scotland before ending with a sit-down in Helsinki with Putin.

He said that of the high-stakes meetings of his trip, “Putin may be the easiest of them all.”

“I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing,” he added.

The meeting will be closely watched to see whether Trump will rebuke or embrace Putin, who has repeatedly denied the allegations of election meddling, in spite of evidence to the contrary.

          "Low profile" warning to Americans dates back to Lockerbie      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
[What follows is excerpted from an article headlined The US embassy in the UK is telling Americans to “keep a low profile” during Trump’s visit published yesterday on the Vox website:]

The US Embassy in London is warning Americans to “keep a low profile” when President Donald Trump visits the UK from July 12 to 14.

Here’s why: Protesters who disagree with the US president’s policies are planning to stage multiple demonstrations during Trump’s trip. Most are set to take place on July 13, when Trump meets UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth.

And while this might sound extreme, it’s actually not. There are two reasons why.

“There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about the alert. We send these out all the time,” Courtney Austrian, a spokesperson for the US mission in London, told me.

That practice dates back to 1998 [RB: this should, of course, be 1988], when a terrorist blew up Pan Am Flight 103 in an incident now known as the Lockerbie bombing. (The plane exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.) There were allegations afterward that the US government told employees it had intelligence of a terrorist attempt, which prompted officials to change their flight plans. It’s unclear if those claims were true or not. [RB: From The Helsinki warning: "On 5 December 1988 (16 days prior to the attack), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a security bulletin saying that, on that day, a man with an Arabic accent had telephoned the US Embassy in Helsinki, Finland, and told them that a Pan Am flight from Frankfurt to the United States would be blown up within the next two weeks ... The anonymous warning was taken seriously by the US government, and the State Department cabled the bulletin to dozens of embassies. The FAA sent it to all US carriers, including Pan Am, which had charged each of the passengers a $5 security surcharge..."]

But since those allegations, US embassies around the world now give the same warnings to citizens as they do to employees, says Austrian. She added that embassy staff gets warnings like this all the time for mass demonstrations, which is why there is a warning now for all Americans.

          Edwards qualifies for 100m semifinals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tyrell Edwards was the lone T&T athlete who moved on to the next round of the IAAF World Under-20 Championships in Tampere, Finland, yesterday.

Edwards qualified for the semifinal round in the Men’s 100 metres, clocking 10.57 seconds to place fourth in heat six to advance as one of the fastest losers on day one at the Ratina Stadium.

Timothy Frederick also faced the starter in the dash and he crossed fifth in the opening heat in a time of 10.69, not quick enough to advance.

Edwards, whose personal and season’s best time is 10.46, will line up in lane two in the third heat seeking a spot in the final against the likes of Italian Lorenzo Paissan, Chad Miller of Great Britan, Australian Jake Doran, who set an Oceanian U-20 100m record of 10.15 in Finland recently, Marvin Shulte of Germany, American Eric Harrison, Riku Illukka of the host country and South Africa’s Thembo Monareng, last year’s African U-20 champion with a swift 10.18 seconds.

Also in action on the track was quartermiler Rae-Ann Serville running in the women’s 400m.

She had the slowest reaction time (0.248) and did not finish the race.

It did not get better for T&T on the field as Talena Murray’s 48.36 metres did meet the qualifying standard (53.50) and her mark was not among the top 12 distances.

Murray’s second throw was the best of three attempts, placing her ninth of the 12 competitors in group B and 17th overall. She opened with a 41.98-toss and closed with a 43.85. Sara Zabarino was the top qualifier with a personal best 53.99.

Today, junior “Sportswoman of the Year” Ianna Roach will get her first taste of competition when she competes in group A in the women’s shot put event. She enters with a personal and season’s best 14.70m and needs to meet the qualifying mark of 15.50m or at least be among the best 12 performers to advance to the final which is scheduled for the evening session of the day’s programme which starts at 9.30 am (T&T time).

Meanwhile, T&T trio of quartermiler Onal Mitchell and sprinters Jenea Spinks and Akilah Lewis will be back on the track.

Mitchell will race in the Men’s 400m in heat five of seven, out of lane two, while Spinks and Lewis will compete in the Women’s 100m dash. Spinks will be in lane six in heat one and Lewis in the third heat in lane seven.

          The Walls Are Closing In On the British Empire      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On the sidelines of the 25th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting. With President of the United States Donald Trump, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

One week from today, on July 16, 2018, President Trump and President Putin will sit down for their long-awaited summit meeting in Helsinki, Finland. Just days before that, on July 11-12, Trump will attend the NATO summit in Brussels, after which he will travel to the U.K. for a three-day visit.

The British Empire's outlets are acting like the walls are closing in on them—which they are. "The stakes are high for the six days between Trump's arrival in Brussels Tuesday night and his departure from Helsinki," the Daily Mail wrote yesterday. "He could, in that short time, remake some of the U.S.'s most significant relationships with the rest of the world"—by which they mean the so-called "special relationship" with Great Britain, which was designed to keep the U.S. "like a cock-boat in the wake of a British man-o'-war."

The London Guardian likewise reported urgently that "senior U.K. politicians and diplomats believe the next 10 days of international diplomacy will be vital in determining the future strength of the Western alliance as a bulwark against Russian aggression"—by which they mean that their game of using wars and subterfuge to prevent a Four Powers alliance of the sort specified by Lyndon LaRouche, is up.

Furthermore, the British plot to overthrow the Trump government is not only sputtering, but its principals are themselves now looking at possible jail time, as Rep. Devin Nunes calls for "deposition-style hearings" before Congressional committees, where the 42 individuals he has cited will have to explain, under oath, their roles in the get-Trump operation.

Worst of all, from where the British sit, is that China continues to systematically—and successfully—build the basic structure, the infrastructure, around which a New Paradigm of a "community with a shared future for mankind" is coming into being.

Lyndon LaRouche's role in bringing about this global sea-change is increasingly recognized—albeit often begrudgingly—by informed circles internationally. But few, far too few, have yet understood LaRouche's method by which he is shaping history with ideas. That most fundamental of issues was in fact the central matter addressed at last weekend's Schiller Institute conference in Bad Soden, Germany, as it is also the focus of the ongoing LaRouche Economics class series in New York City.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche stressed this point during her July 5 weekly webcast, in response to a question about what had been achieved at the Schiller Institute conference:

"I think the participants all expressed a profound optimism that with the ideas which were presented, a solution can be found. And everybody noted that what distinguishes the Schiller Institute from other organizations, — other organizations have conferences on maybe specific subjects and then have many experts who have their power point discussion, but they don't really elevate the audience to the level of thinking required to find solutions. But that was really why I called my presentation also 'The Coincidence of Opposites,' coincidentia oppositorum which is an idea of Nicholas of Cusa. It's a specific way of thinking, how to overcome the contradictions in political life on the daily level, or if you just look at the status quo, you never find a solution....

"We have to give ourselves as a human species, an order which is more in correspondence with the lawfulness of the physical universe. And that only the idea of continuous change and an anti-entropic universe can give a guideline; and the only people who are capable of thinking in this way are the scientists, the natural scientists, and artists of Classical culture. Because only they are used to thinking in terms of universal principles which are repeatable and therefore valid, and therefore are beyond the realm of opinion, but related to a deeper, underlying truth of the lawfulness of our universe: And that must guide and inform our political life.

"Obviously, this is a very deep philosophical discussion. It requires that many nations of the world, preferably all of them, be involved in this discussion.... And how can we make sure that we do not plunge into dark ages again? By simply elevating our populations to think in terms of a New Paradigm of the coincidence of opposites, of the one humanity first, or what Xi Jinping always calls 'a community for a shared humanity,' or 'shared future of mankind.'"


          ENTREVISTA: Aleksi Peräla      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Aleksi Perälä (1976, Finlandia) es uno de los últimos talentos que emergieron de la mano del sello seminal Rephlex en la segunda etapa de la IDM, en 1999. Con motivo de su actuación en el festival portugués Neopop, que se celebrará en Viana do Castelo (Portugal) entre los días 8 y 11 de agosto, nos ofrece una entrevista en la que desvela algunas de sus sensaciones, opiniones, creencias y dudas en torno a Colundi, proyecto en el que anda enfrascado desde 2014, momento en el que fue publicado el primer nivel de la serie. Descubierto por Grant Wilson-Claridge, cofundador de Rephlex junto a Aphex Twin, Colundi hace referencia a una secuencia de frecuencias específicas que, alejada de los procedimientos matemáticos de relaciones circulares, característicos de los diferentes sistemas de afinación, es una potencial mina de escalas y modos. Asimismo, rezumando un tufo místico y espiritual que remite al posible poder cósmico-curativo de la música –creencia de Pitágoras, Platón, el oscuro filósofo-músico Damón, algunos Padres de la Iglesia, otras culturas alejadas geográfica y temporalmente o la musicoterapia de estos tiempos de relativismo que hoy vivimos– pero sin implicaciones éticas determinadas, Colundi es la hipóstasis de la que se ha extraído el techno más esotérico de la actualidad. Todo esto nos suena a indefinición, a indeterminación tremendamente sugestiva, pero su música nos pone muchísimo.

          Japanese Pensions Rushing Into Alternatives?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Julie Segal of Institutional Investor reports, Japanese Pensions Push Hard Into Alternatives:
In a major shift, historically conservative Japanese institutions are significantly increasing their investments in hedge funds, private equity, private debt, infrastructure, and other unlisted asset classes.

The average Japanese corporate pension fund now has a 17 percent allocation to alternative investments, up from 11 percent in 2013, according to J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s annual survey.

Furthermore, six in ten pension funds said they plan to increase their alternative investments next year. The asset manager interviewed staff members at 120 corporate defined benefit pensions between March and mid-June 2018 for its 11th annual survey. The study covers fiscal years 2016 and 2017 as well as allocators’ plans for the future.

Domestic bond allocations fell to 21.7 percent on average, the lowest level since JPMAM began been tracking the market. The move out of bonds coincides with the Bank of Japan’s policy of keeping interest rates negative to spur economic growth. The policy has hurt its institutional investors who tended to invest heavily in sovereign bonds. To offset disappearing bond yield, pension investors are hoping alternatives such as infrastructure and real estate can help them meet their return targets.

“Japanese corporate defined benefit pension plans remain under pressure to generate returns sufficient to fund their obligations and are gradually unshackling themselves from a long tradition of highly conservative investing,” institutional sales head Yoichiro Nitta said in a statement.

“The challenge will continue as anticipated bond and equity returns remain subdued, the Bank of Japan sticks with ultra-loose monetary policy to coax inflation, the U.S. economy is late cycle, and Japan’s GDP forecast is unclear,” he continued.

JPMAM also found that Japanese institutional investors are using absolute return/unconstrained fixed income, multi-asset strategies, and private debt funds to help manage volatility.

Twenty percent of Japanese institutions have nixed domestic bond and equity buckets and instead now use global versions of each as they continue to diversify outside their home market of Japan. “Within these newly condensed buckets, exposure to domestic assets is generally falling at the expense of greater allocation to foreign assets,” the announcement said.

Although Japanese pensions are moving further into alternatives, many of them still have concerns. Common hurdles include communicating how the investments work to boards and other stakeholders; whether low liquidity assets have been flooded with capital and are in a bubble; and understanding where risk lies.

“Defined benefit pension fund managers are racking their brains to explain complicated instruments and upgrade their portfolio management,” the JPMAM report stated.
Chris Flood and Attracta Mooney of the Financial Times also report, Japanese pension funds embrace alternative investments:
Appetite among Japanese pension funds for alternative investments has hit a new peak at the same time as bond allocations have sunk to a record low, according to a survey by JPMorgan Asset Management.

Pension funds in Japan, historically regarded as some of the world’s most conservative investors, have been forced to make radical changes to boost returns as a result of the extreme measures taken by the Japanese government to stimulate economic growth and inflation.

JPMorgan surveyed 123 Japanese corporate pension funds and found that the average allocation to alternative investments reached a record 17.1 per cent in March, up from 11.4 per cent over the past five years.

Exposure to Japanese government bonds dropped to 21.7 per cent, the lowest in the 11-year history of JPMorgan’s survey.

Japanese policymakers have deliberately held interest rates at ultra-low levels since 1999 in an effort to boost economic activity. The benchmark 10-year government bond yields just 2 basis points.

Expected returns among corporate pension funds have fallen over the past decade from about 3.5 to 2.6 per cent, reflecting the downward pressure on domestic interest rates.

“Japanese corporate pension funds remain under significant pressure to generate sufficient returns to fund their obligations and are gradually unshackling themselves from their long tradition of highly conservative investing. Alternatives have now truly become a mainstream asset class for Japanese pension funds,” said Akira Kunikyo, an investment specialist in JPMorgan AM’s Japan institutional business.

Katsunori Kitakura, lead strategist at SuMi Trust, the $475bn Tokyo-based asset manager, said that difficulties in forecasting the future performance of alternative investments raised concerns over whether these illiquid assets would deliver the returns required.

“It may be too late to take any countermeasures if a pension fund realises that its illiquid alternatives may not achieve their expected returns,” said Mr Kitakura, adding that risk monitoring and governance were vital considerations. “We have seen pension funds invest in alternative products in the past without conducting the appropriate due diligence and setting up risk monitoring facilities.”

JPMorgan’s survey showed that just under 60 per cent of corporate pension funds intended to raise their exposure to alternatives over the next year.

“We expect to see investors continue to ‘push the envelope’ on alternatives to boost returns and increase portfolio resilience,” said Mr Kunikyo.

In April 2017, Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund invited proposals from alternative investment managers to handle private equity, infrastructure and real estate allocations via funds of funds. The number and size of new mandates has not been disclosed by the GPIF, which holds a fraction of its assets in alternatives.
GPIF, the world's biggest pension fund, reported a 6.9% gain for its fiscal year that ended March 31st, its best gain in three years buoyed by gains in domestic and overseas stocks:
Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund returned 6.9 percent, or 10.1 trillion yen ($91 billion), in the year ended March 31, with assets totaling 156.4 trillion yen, it said in Tokyo on Friday. Domestic stocks were the fund’s best-performing investment, adding 5.5 trillion yen, followed by a 3.5 trillion yen increase in overseas shares. Domestic bonds gained 362 billion yen, while overseas debt rose 674 billion yen.

Six quarters of gains boosted assets to a record at the end of 2017. The GPIF incurred losses during the first three months of this year as investor sentiment turned from optimism over U.S. tax cuts to fears of a trade war. A global equity rout and plunge in Treasuries in its final fiscal quarter kept the fund from beating a record 12 percent annual gain set three years ago.

“The environment is favorable for stock investments for the time being as the global economy remains solid and inflation is benign,” said Naoki Fujiwara, chief fund manager for Shinkin Asset Management Co. in Tokyo. “Yet, from a long-term perspective, the ratio of risk assets in its portfolio may be too much.”


The GPIF doubled stock holdings and cut bonds as part of a strategy revamp in 2014 with the assumption that rising prices would erode the spending power of Japan’s low-yielding debt. Since then, the shift has helped the fund generate a positive return for three out the past four fiscal years.

“Domestic and overseas stocks rose largely supported by a robust economic environment and solid corporate earnings, in addition to” political stabilization in Europe and expectations over an economic boost from a U.S. tax cut, GPIF President Norihiro Takahashi said in a statement Friday. “However, toward the end of the fiscal year, domestic and overseas stocks narrowed their gains on uncertainties over U.S. trade policy, while the yen strengthened against the dollar.”

Trade friction between the U.S. and China has become a big issue when assessing the investment environment, Takahashi said at a press conference in Tokyo. In addition, he said the fund is cautious about investing in Japanese bonds with a maturity less than 10 years because of negative yields.
Did you catch that last part? When people ask me about the US bond market, I tell them to forget articles in the Wall Street Journal claiming US corporations are behind the rally in Treasurys and look at what is happening overseas where there is a record amount of sovereign debt trading at negative yields.

So it's not surprising that Japanese pensions, insurance companies and other foreign investors stuck with the same dilemma are going to look for yield in the US bond market, investing in corporate bonds and US Treasurys.

Why don't they only invest in US bonds? Because their liabilities are in local currency (like yen in this case) and there are F/X hedging costs involved which come back to bite them when the US dollar underperforms like it did last year before reversing course this year.

All this to say, even with negative yields, global pensions will still invest in their own bond market when it makes sense.

The obvious problem is that negative yields don't pay pension benefits. These Japanese pensions need to generate returns to match assets with their long-dated liabilities. And negative rates means these liabilities have mushroomed since the financial crisis but their asset allocation is still way too conservative so they are not able to generate the required rate of return.

It's pretty much the same problem every pension has all over the world. Historic low rates are forcing everyone to take more risk in risk assets like stocks and corporate bonds but these risk assets are very volatile, so here comes JPMorgan recommending everyone shifts more assets out of bonds and into alternatives.

Great for JPMorgan, they can recommend alternatives to all their clients all over the world and generate huge advisory, underwriting and trading fees but is it the best course of action for pensions and their members over the long run?

I just finished a comment going over Pennsylvania's pension fury where I discussed why simply shifting assets into alternatives without a plan and strategy is a recipe for disaster.

The big squeeze is a real issue for many underfunded US pensions which have been paying hundreds of millions in fees to alternative investment managers and receiving mediocre returns over the long run.

But the problem isn't fees. The problem is governance and no strategy when it comes to alternatives.

Today, I had lunch with a representative from Partners Group, a global powerhouse in private market investments. This fellow was super nice and very sharp. He invited me to lunch after reading my comment on PSP ramping up its direct investments.

Anyway, we talked about the Caisse going direct in private equity and PSP upping the dosage too and we noted that Stephane Etroy (Caisse) and Simon Marc (PSP) are doing a great job executing their strategy in private equity, ramping up co-investments to scale into the asset class and lower overall fees.

He told me that they view both these gentlemen and their team members as highly sophisticated investors "who bring a lot more than capital to the table". "It's the same with folks from AIMCo, CPPIB, OMERS, and OTPP."

He told me that Partners Group is focusing more on bespoke investing and there is a gamut between fund investments and co-investments. They are also focusing more on long-term investing keeping some portfolio companies much longer than the typical 3 to 5 years.

He also told me that in the US, their best-performing LP is one that doesn't press them on fee conscessions but one that is able to quickly evaluate opportunities as they arise and partner up with them on deals.

He even gave me the example of a recent deal where the LP's employees were on vacation but over the weekend, they managed to go to their board and come back quickly on a co-investment deal.

That is unheard of. A process like that takes great governance, a great team to evaluate co-investments quickly, and a quick turnaround.

That's not something you'll find at US public pensions which are often weighed down by politics. There are good people working at US public pensions but the process is highly bureaucratic and the governance is weakened by political interference.

Why am I bringing this up here? What does this have to do with Japanese pensions?

Because Japan's GPIF has a giant beta problem, just like Norway's monster pension fund which has gained very nicely since March 2009 when global stocks bottomed and rallied hard ever since.

But what happens when beta works against these funds like in a long, protracted bear market? Unlike Canada's large pensions which are well diversified across global public and private markets and have executed their strategy nicely focusing on hiring top talent to lower fees by doing more co-investments, many global pensions are very vulnerable if another downturn strikes.

But blindly shifting ever more assets into alternatives at this stage of the cycle is a recipe for disaster. You need a strategy, long-term focus and discipline or else forget alternatives, it's not worth it.

It is worth noting, however, that GPIF is moving as fast as possible into alternatives and its infrastructure portfolio which is still relatively small in terms of overall assets, generated a 5.25% return in fiscal 2018 and is looking great:
Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) has recorded a return of 5.25% (in US dollars) on its ¥196.8bn (€1.51bn) core infrastructure portfolio in the 12 months ending 31 March 2018.

It is the first time that the ¥156.4trn pension fund has disclosed details about its alternative investments in its annual investment report.

According to the report, the infrastructure portfolio includes investments in the Port of Melbourne in Australia, and Birmingham Airport, Bristol Airport and Thames Water in the UK.

GPIF said its infrastructure investments were located mostly in the UK (57%), Australia and Sweden (both 15%), Spain (10%) and Finland (3%).

The pension fund first invested in infrastructure in 2014 when it become a co-investor in the Global Strategic Investment Alliance (GSIA) with Canadian pension fund OMERS and the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ).

It also invests globally in infrastructure funds through multi-managers DBJ Asset ManagementStepStone Infrastructure & Real Assets and Pantheon.

GPIF’s real estate exposure is smaller at ¥8.1bn, according to the report. The pension fund plans to increase this through domestic and global multi-manager mandates.

Late last year it appointed Mitsubishi UFJ Trust as its domestic real estate multi-manager, and has yet to announce its global real estate multi-manager.

GPIF’s plans to invest in core real estate to generate long-term, stable income.

Norihiro Takahashi, GPIF’s president, said the pension fund’s overall portfolio returned 6.9% for the fiscal year.

He attributed the performance to a strong global economy, which had buoyed global stock markets, but warned of uncertainties now created by trade tensions between the world’s largest trading nations.
On private equity, GPIF's CIO rightly notes it's fast becoming more mainstream but if I were to consult GPIF and Japan's corporate pensions, I'd tell them to contact Partners Group, Blackstone, KKR, TPG and a list of top funds but also talk to guys like Mark Wiseman and André Bourbonnais who are now working at BlackRock.

You need to get the right team in place for alternatives especially when you're the size of a GPIF or some of these monster Japanese corporate pensions but more importantly, you need to get the strategy right or else you will regret getting into alternatives.

Many US public pensions didn't get the strategy right and now they're coming to the realization that more alternative investments haven't helped in terms of their long-term performance and improving their funded status. It's been a boon for alternative investment managers but not so much for public pensions and their members.

All this to say, Japanese and other global pensions looking to embrace alternatives need to first and foremost get the strategy right and develop a long-term plan to slowly but surely build out co-investments to scale into private equity and lower overall fees. Using funds of funds is fine initially but that's not a long-term strategy.

Fund investments and co-investments is the long-term strategy which has led to the success of Canada's large public pensions but before you get the strategy right, you need to get the governance right and I'm not sure that's easy in Japan or elsewhere.

So when I read articles like the one above on Japan's pensions embracing alternatives, I'm very cautious. This is great news for JPMorgan, Goldman, and their top-paying clients which are top alternative investment managers, but it remains to be seen as to how this will help Japanese pensions over the long run.

I'm also very concerned as to what all this money chasing alternative investments globally will do to dilute returns in the long run. What did Tom Barrack once say about "too much money with too few brains chasing too few deals"?

Below, an interview with Hiromichi Mizuno, GPIF's CIO. You can also read this recent SWFI interview with 'Hiro' who rightly introduced performance fees for active managers back in April.

And Alvin Liew of UOB says a change in consumer "mindset" is likely required for Japan's inflation outlook to improve.

Unfortunately, I see no such change on the horizon and fear Japan's deflation demon is spreading throughout the world, ensuring historic low rates are here to stay.

El pasado mes de junio el ministro de Hacienda finlandés, Petteri Orpo, alertaba de que su país debía empezar a amortizar parte de los 137.000 millones de euros (más de un 60% sobre PIB) de deuda de las administraciones públicas antes de que desaparezca la oportunidad para controlar la situación, es decir, antes de que los tipos de interés dejen de ser tan favorables. A pesar de esta señal de alarma, Finlandia ha demostrado ser un pagador fiable a lo largo de toda la historia... incluso las deudas de guerra.

          Trump's NATO criticism is 'valid,' Europe isn't spending enough on defense, UK ex-minister says      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
President Donald Trump is pushing other countries within the NATO military alliance to contribute more to their defense spending - and the U.K.'s former defense minister has told CNBC that he agrees. "Half the alliance - 16 of the 29 countries - don't even spend 1.5 percent (of gross domestic product) let alone 2 percent that we all agreed on four years ago (at a NATO summit) in Wales," Michael Fallon, who served as secretary of state for defense from 2014 to 2017, said Tuesday. "Four years on, and not enough European countries are making progress towards it and they need to do that and the president's criticisms are quite valid." Trump is due to attend a NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday and the thorny issue of how much the alliance's individual members spend on defense is certain to arise. On Tuesday, Trump was still tweeting his annoyance. Number crunching In 2014, NATO members agreed to target spending 2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) on defense, although the contributions remain voluntary. In 2017, only the U.S., U.K., Greece, Poland and Estonia reached the 2 percent target. In 2017, the U.S. spent (at current exchange rates) an estimated $685.9 billion on defense, NATO data shows, the U.K. spent $55.3 billion and Germany $45 billion, compared to Canada's $22.4 billion. The U.S. represented a 71.1 percent share of the alliance's combined defense expenditure. NATO collects defense expenditure data from each member's defense ministry. The latest data from the organization, released Tuesday, estimated that for 2018 the U.S. will spend 3.5 percent of GDP on defense, while NATO Europe and Canada are expected to both spend 1.47 percent. At a NATO summit in May 2017, Trump lambasted fellow member nations saying, "Twenty-three of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should... Many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years." What makes Trump particularly cross is the fact that the U.S. pays so much "to protect Europe," as Trump said last week at a rally in Montana, while Europe "kills us on trade" and the European Union had a 120 billion euro ($140 billion) trade surplus with the States in 2017 - a bone of contention for the president. Trump has since threatened that the U.S. might not come to the aid of a NATO member should it be attacked, and there are concerns that Washington. could pull troops out of Europe. After several years of defense spending cutbacks, both France's President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have pledged this year to increase defense spending - but both have signaled that the 2 percent target might not be reached for years. Berlin has only committed to 1.5 percent by 2024, but even NATO head Jens Stoltenberg has said that is not good enough. NATO is based on the principle of collective defense, meaning that an attack against one ally is considered an attack against all allies and, consequently, members will come to each other's aid. But Trump has repeatedly said that the U.S. is paying way more than its fair share The U.K.'s former defense minister said Trump's position on defense was unlikely to have changed much from last summer. "Last year, when Trump came to the Brussels (NATO) summit, I recall how he was brand new and everyone wanted to meet him, everybody wanted to see how he would react. And he made some of the same points that he's been making recently and he made them there - that Europe has to do more in its own defense." With Trump heading to Helsinki, Finland, to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin next Monday, Fallon believed that NATO members would be keen to engage with Trump. "I think this time there will be more engagement with him. And not least because he's going on from the summit to engage with President Putin and a lot of the members of NATO have a very strong interest in that, particularly Germany, but also those countries that border on to Russia." NATO 'not a one-way street' While the U.S. accounts for the most defense spending within NATO, the U.S. is a beneficiary from the alliance in more ways than one, strategists and military experts note. Hans Binnendijk, from the Center for Transatlantic Relations, and Magnus Nordenman, from the Atlantic Council think tank, concluded in a entitled "NATO's Value to the U.S.: By the Numbers" and published in April that the U.S.' relationship "with its friends and allies is not a one-way street, where the United States makes, and the allies take." They noted that the specified NATO commitment of 2 percent of GDP "is the most visible metric used to measure allied political commitment to burden-sharing across the alliance. However, that metric does not measure the output and quality of allied defense contributions. It says even less about how NATO relates to broader U.S. security and economic interests." For instance, the writers noted: "France and the U.K. contribute about 30 percent of the total ballistic-missile-submarine deterrent fleet held by NATO members" and that "NATO countries also host sites for U.S. B-61 nuclear gravity bombs, and maintain dual-capable aircraft for nuclear delivery, which further enhance deterrence." "NATO and its members contribute directly to U.S. national security through, among many other things, deterrence, deployments in support of U.S. operations, and forward basing close to key security hotspots," the said.

Finlandisation – the way a powerful state bullies its neighbour - was a fact of life in the Finland I was born in. And it still partly is

When the news broke that a Putin-Trump summit would be held in Helsinki, some comments made my ears prick up. In the international media there was talk of Finland having been chosen as a venue because it is “neutral ground”, a country deemed to have a history of neutrality, and where east-west meetings had been held during the cold war. But Finland today is nothing of the sort. It is a member of the European Union. It is not somewhere in a grey zone between Europe and Russia.

My schoolbooks all said that Estonia had voluntarily joined the Soviet 'family'. Of course, this wasn’t true

          芬兰新发现了一个陨石坑!在地球上找个坑怎么就这么难?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

通常,人们对于“坑”的事儿总是会避之不及,既不愿“掉坑”,也不想“被坑”,入错了行会盼着早日“脱坑”……但有这么一群人,却夜以继日努力找“坑”,找到之后还会无比兴奋——他们就是来自芬兰的地质学家。

他们要找的“坑”可不是一般的坑,而是小行星“袭击”地球后留下的陨石坑

这不,就在前几天(6月25日),他们就开心地宣布了自己在芬兰新发现的陨石坑——Summanen!并将其发表在了《陨石与行星科学学报(MAPS)》上 [1]

(左)芬兰目前已经确认的所有陨石坑的相对大小和位置(陨石坑比实际大小扩大了2倍),包括本次发现的Summanen陨石坑;(右)Summanen湖一带的水下地形图,越蓝表示位置越低。本次发现的Summanen陨石坑(黄色虚线圈),位于Summanen湖(红线内)中央。来源:参考文献[1]


地球稀客——陨石坑

可是,等等,发现陨石坑有什么稀奇的?陨石坑这种东西,在太阳系内简直不要太常见,这是整个太阳系不断遭受着小天体撞击的证据。也就是说,只要有固态表面,基本就会遍布陨石坑。

比如,表面积只有3793万平方公里(只有地球的7.4%)的月球上,直径大于20公里的陨石坑有近7000个,直径大于1公里的陨石坑……emmm不是天文数字,也就……一百多万个吧。

然而,作为月球的邻居,我们的地球上发现的陨石坑却少得可怜。目前为止,包括所有大小的陨石坑…一共…只发现了190多个

地球上目前已发现的大型陨石坑分布,注意圆圈大小并不是实际的陨石坑大小,但正比于实际陨石坑的大小。来源:维基


为,为什么啊?

因为地球上有生命栖息,所以额外受到太阳系的眷顾吗?醒醒,别做梦,当然不是。地球上陨石坑这么少的主要原因有三个:

1、地球有大气层的保护,所以特别小的撞击体还没穿过大气层就被烧完了,不会砸到地面上来,这保证了地球上不太可能有非常小(直径不到几十米)的陨石坑;

2、地球上一大半面积都被海洋覆盖,太小的陨石砸到海里也不会形成陨石坑;

3、地球上各种地质活动(板块构造、火山、地震、流水、风化侵蚀等等等等,甚至还包括动植物的破坏)实在是太丰富多彩了,这些地质活动会不断“擦掉”已经形成的陨石坑,所以一个陨石坑年龄越老、规模越小,就越难留下痕迹。

也就是说,大部分年龄老、规模小的陨石坑都早已消失殆尽了,少部分陨石坑虽然还在但却很难发现。


你会说,这有什么难的?几公里甚至几十公里的大坑,怎么会找不到?

太天真了。

当年传说中灭绝了恐龙的那个陨石撞出来的陨石坑,直径大约有180公里,够大吧?但直到二十世纪70年代,都没有人知道那里曾经有过陨石坑!因为陨石坑早就被浅海形成的石灰岩沉积充填,再加上各种地质侵蚀,肉眼已经很难看出陨石坑的轮廓了。

所以说,地球上绝对不止这190多个陨石坑,只是问题在于……如何发现它们。于是问题来了,如何确定一个坑是陨石坑呢?

让我们来看看芬兰这个Summanen陨石坑的发现过程吧。


首先你要找到坑

陨石坑是小天体从天而降砸出来的嘛,所以废话,陨石坑首先要是个坑。

然而事情并不那么简单,就像我们前面提到的,地球上大部分坑早已被剧烈侵蚀了,可不是每个坑都像《你的名字》里面那么明显的。

比如芬兰这次这个Summanen陨石坑,早已被Summanen湖所掩埋了。这个湖最深处有41米深,谷歌地球上长这样:

图:Summanen湖。来源:谷歌地球


纳尼?你告诉我这湖里有个坑?别急,虽然在水底地形图上看不到坑,但借助其他科技手段还是能够“慧眼识坑”的。对,虽然在水底地形图上并不明显,但十几年前,芬兰地质调查局的科学家们就从这里的航空电磁数据中发现湖里有个圆形结构了。电磁数据显示这个圆形坑的直径大约2.6公里,不过考虑到各种地质作用的侵蚀,实际的直径应该比这个大。

图:Summanen湖一带的航空电磁数据(左)和电阻异常(右),两图中间的圆形部分就是Summanen陨石坑。来源:参考文献[1]


然后,你要证明“坑”是“陨石撞出来的”


但有个坑还远远不够。你咋知道这个坑是陨石撞出来的而不是火山喷发或者地表凹陷呢?更何况,这个坑在地形上几乎已经完全被填平了,并不比周围的湖底更低…那么仅仅在电磁数据上表现出的圆形结构,可能的原因就更多了,比如会不会是湖底沉积了一些磁性不一样的矿物?

所以,我们还需要更多证据。于是2017年夏季,科学家们在这里又进行了两次详细的野外地质考察。

图: 31处采集了样本的地方。来源:参考文献[1]


证据1:震裂锥

那么陨石撞击还有什么特征呢?首先,陨石碎片是别想了,坑都侵蚀没了,陨石还能有么……但,陨石坑是高速飞行的陨石(速度十几公里每秒)猛烈撞击地面形成的……这意味着……一定会留下岩石在短时间内迅速受到高温高压冲击作用的痕迹!

图:陨石坑的形成过程。来源:维基


这些痕迹中,最常见的就是震裂锥(shatter cone),这是一种比较典型的陨石撞击或者核爆破产物,岩石在受到2-30GPa的压强之下可能会形成这种锥状发散的线条,是一种宏观的肉眼可以识别的撞击地貌。典型的震裂锥长这样:

(左)加拿大魁北克的Charlevoix陨石坑中发现的碎裂锥。来源:Wiki by JM Gastonguay;(右)德国Ries陨石坑中发现的碎裂锥。来源:维基by Johannes Baier


这次,在Summanen湖一带的31处采样中,有8处发现了震裂锥

证据2:面状变形构造

但仅震裂锥一种特征还不足以证明这里一定经历过陨石撞击。事实上,除了震裂锥之外,还有一些常见的岩石冲击变质产物,如撞击角砾岩、柯石英、斯石英、微粒钻石等,这些同样只能作为此处发生过高压撞击作用的辅证,而非实锤。

最关键的实锤是一种叫做面状变形构造(Planar deformation features,简称PDFs)的特征,这是一种微观特征,需要在显微镜下才能看到

经历过陨石撞击引起的高压冲击作用的硅酸盐矿物(通常是石英或长石)晶粒中可能会产生一组或多组平行于不同方向的线性裂隙,平行裂隙之间的间距在十几到几十微米量级。

典型的石英晶粒中的面状变形构造(PDFs)。来自(左)加拿大Bosumtwi陨石坑,参考文献[3];(右)芬兰的Keurusselka陨石坑,参考文献[4]。图中都是平行于两个不同方向的情况。


这是一种只可能出现在高压冲击作用现场的产物,也是目前地球上判定一个坑是不是陨石撞击形成的最重要的实锤。

而这次在Summanen湖一带发现的8处震裂锥样本中,有两处发现了面状变形构造(PDFs),证实这里确实曾经有一个陨石坑

本次采样发现的两处样本中的面状变形构造(PDFs),这是判定Summanen湖中的圆形结构确实是一个陨石坑的决定性证据。来源:参考文献[1]


由于这个陨石坑年代太过久远,又深埋在湖底,缺乏更多详细资料,科学家们无法判断这个陨石坑具体形成于什么年代。只是综合考虑这一代的地质情况,科学家们推测这个陨石坑形成于显生宙(5.41亿年前至今),更可能在古生代晚期到新生代之间


后记

国土面积只有33.8万平方公里的芬兰,目前已经发现了12个陨石坑。对此,文章作者也表示,这绝不是因为芬兰被上天选中了,而更多有赖于芬兰有更完善的地球物理资料(主要是地磁数据和重力数据),而且芬兰对陨石坑的野外地质调查工作比较重视的缘故

而我们幅员辽阔的中国,目前仅有一个确认的陨石坑——位于辽宁省鞍山市岫岩满族自治县的岫岩陨石坑,直径约1.8公里。

一定还有许多“害羞”的陨石坑们,也在静静躺在湖底,或藏匿于森林,等待我们去一一探寻。

希望中国接下来也能发现更多的陨石坑吧!




PS:这篇本来昨天就打算发的,因为一点突发事件气的脑壳疼,就拖到了今天。这篇丢给 @云舞空城 审稿的时候,舞大说希望我多写一点中国陨石坑的地质考察情况,分析一下原因…最终我还是没有写,主要是因为自己的知识储备和见识不到那个份上。科学这种事,什么时候应该把多少钱投在哪里,我并没有眼光和把握力,所以不敢妄加置喙。

只说事实的话,目前基本上陨石坑发现的多的国家都是发达国家,因为确实寻找陨石坑这种工作,工作量大,结果不稳定(可能找了很久什么证据都没找到),而且收益太低(基本只有旅游和科研价值)。所以我想,中国现在陨石坑发现的不多也不能完全就说是“认识不够”,或许也是“还没到那个份上”。

虽然最近有一些相关的争执,但我想,最重要的一点是,我觉得大家都不要忘记,每个人都是自私的,每个人做大多数事都是有所图的,区别只是图什么而已。但我想,只看内容,不问动机,对每个读者才是更加轻松的方式吧。


虽然说我能看懂文章,能有笔力写下来,于我而言已经是幸运,但如果说私心,我当然是有的。

或许有地质工作者看到这篇文章,会产生这些念头,会去尝试申请相关的科研项目经费,这是最好的。

或许目前确实没有这样的条件,至少会在看到的每个读者心里埋下一颗种子

这些陨石坑已经在地球上存在了几十亿年了,也不在乎多等几十年。

或许再过十年二十年,等到我们的下一代不用再为稻粱苦谋的时候,他们可以有兴趣去探探险,寻找一下数亿年前来自太阳系的“馈赠”吧。

几十年前的人们,曾经压根都不相信地球甚至月球上的陨石坑是陨石撞击形成的,而认为是火山喷发的痕迹。改变这一观念的其中一位重要的科学家叫做尤金·舒梅克。1960年,尤金和另外两名地质学家在巴林杰陨石坑的岩石中首次发现了天然柯石英这种在高压下才可能形成的矿物,成为当时证明陨石坑是陨石撞击而非火山口的重要证据。当然,现在的我们已经知道了,即使是柯石英也只是参考,证明地球上的陨石坑是陨石撞击而成的真正决定性的证据,是我们这次介绍的面状变形构造(PDFs)

STOCKHOLM/HELSINKI (Reuters) - For a city of just 600,000 people on the northeast periphery of Europe, Helsinki has played an outsized role in the fraught relationship between its giant neighbor Russia and the West.

Throughout the 1945-1990 Cold War, neutral Finland navigated a precarious but pragmatic course between East and West, finding middle ground that made the capital Helsinki a hotspot for superpower talks between the Soviet Union and United States.

The Soviet Union's 1991 break-up and Finland's 1995 entry into the European Union ushered Helsinki fully into the Western orbit.

But Finland has kept acting as a bridge for diplomacy and the July 16 summit between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in its capital will be the latest installment, with East-West relations tenser than at any time since the Cold War.

Below are some milestones in Helsinki's diplomatic history.

Balancing act

(AP Photo)

Ruled by Sweden for centuries, Finland fell under the thumb of Tsarist Russia in an early 19th-century war. It emerged only after the 1917 Russian Revolution, which triggered a year of civil war followed by a declaration as an independent republic.

But the Soviet Union continued to harbor designs on Finland, leading to the 1939-40 "Winter War" in which the country lost some 10% of its territory bordering Russia.

Under delicate post-war treaties, Helsinki adopted a policy of accommodation with Moscow while remaining strictly neutral, avoiding membership in either the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact or NATO. Its stance became known as "Finlandisation," whereby a small state refrains from challenging the policies of a powerful neighbor in exchange for keeping a measure of independence.

While "Finlandisation" became a pejorative word in West European politics, it also made Helsinki a favored venue for negotiating East-West detente after decades of nuclear-edged confrontation.

The landmark Helsinki Accords were sealed there in 1975. The deal declared the inviolability of post-war borders in Europe in which eastern states occupied by the Red Army in the defeat of Nazism became Soviet satellites, divided by an "Iron Curtain" border from western states allied with the United States.

It was seen as a diplomatic coup for Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. But the Accords also enshrined guarantees on human rights that over time would be used by dissidents in the Soviet bloc and Western powers to pressure Moscow to ease repression.



Soviet end-game

Thomson Reuters

Soviet strength seemed unassailable in the 1970s while the United States grappled with the fallout of the Vietnam War and recession triggered by an Arab oil embargo, but the tables had turned by the time of the next Helsinki summit in 1990.

When reformist Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev sat down for talks with US President George H.W. Bush, popular uprisings had toppled Moscow-backed Communist regimes in Eastern Europe.

Iraq's invasion of Kuwait and the looming US-led counter-attack formed the centerpiece of their talks and the Soviet Union ended up largely supporting the 1991 Gulf War in a stunning break with Cold War tradition.

Gorbachev was soon out of power after an abortive hardline coup in August 1991 that broke up the sclerotic Soviet Union.

          Pesca, Fao: «I cambiamenti climatici trasformeranno gli ecosistemi marini e d’acqua dolce»      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Secondo il rapporto “Impacts of climate change on fisheries and aquaculture - Synthesis of current knowledge, adaptation and mitigation options” nel quale la Fao, grazie al lavoro di più di 100 scienziati,  riassume nuove analisi e studi, «Entro il 2050 i cambiamenti climatici avranno alterato la produttività di molte delle attività di pesca marina e di acqua dolce del pianeta, con pesanti conseguenze per i mezzi di sostentamento di milioni di persone tra le più povere al mondo».

Secondo l’agenzioa Onu, «Il potenziale produttivo della pesca nelle e zone economiche esclusive marine (Zee) - quelle fasce di 200 miglia di territorio marino adiacente alle coste che ogni nazione costiera ha il diritto di sfruttare - potrebbe diminuire in media meno del 12%, ma questo maschera fluttuazioni più significative del potenziale produttivo a livello regionale, suggeriscono i modelli».

Ne risentirà anche la pesca e l’acquacoltura di fiumi, corsi d’acqua e laghi, un sistema spesso in situazioni critiche e trascurato che però comprende 5  dei Paesi meno sviluppati al mondo che sono tra i primi 10 produttori di pesce e che fornisce ogni anno 11,6 milioni di tonnellate di cibo destinato al consumo umano.

Il rapporto evidenzia che «Questi impatti sono legati alle variazioni della temperatura dell'acqua e dei livelli di pH, ai cambiamenti nei modelli di circolazione oceanica, all'innalzamento del livello del mare e alle alterazioni delle precipitazioni e delle tempeste che faranno cambiare la distribuzione e la produttività delle specie, sbiancare i coralli e diffondersi di malattie acquatiche tra gli altri effetti».

Il rapporto di 654 pagine, zeppo di analisi e informazioni globali, regionali e nazionali, e la pubblicazione più completa sui cambiamenti climatici e sulla pesca mai realizzata e comprende sia nuove ricerche che una sintesi unica delle più recenti informazioni scientifiche su come un clima mutevole sta alterando gli oceani, i laghi e i fiumi del mondo e ridisegnando le vite delle comunità che dipendono da loro.

La Fa spiega che «Una serie di studi di casi si concentra sulle sfide - oltre a soluzioni di adattamento già esplorate - in 13 grandi aree marine che vanno dall'Artico al Mediterraneo. Il capitolo chiave fornisce strumenti di adattamento e opzioni per aiutare i Paesi a farvi fronte in modi che consentiranno loro di adempiere agli impegni di adattamento contemplati dall'Accordo sul clima di Parigi». Il rapporto afferma che »Con misure opportune, l'impatto dei cambiamenti climatici possono essere ridotti al minimo»

Presentando il rapporto, il direttore generale della Fao, José Graziano da Silva, si è appellato alla comunità internazionale perché «Fornisca supporto adeguato ai paesi per adattarsi ai cambiamenti climatici» e ha invitato i Paesi membri del consiglio direttivo del Green Climate Fund dell’Onu a «Risolvere i loro disaccordi sui finanziamenti.  Il mancato accordo in sede di consiglio la settimana scorsa riguardo al rifinanziamento del Fondo stesso significa che questo potrebbe esaurirsi già l'anno prossimo. Corriamo il rischio di esaurire l'elemento più potente dell'Accordo di Parigi sul clima. Quando abbiamo firmato l'Accordo di Parigi, aiutare i Paesi più poveri ad adattarsi era una condizione imprescindibile e la sua mancata realizzazione significherebbe fallire nell'implementazione dell'accordo».

Secondo un modello sviluppato dal rapporto basandosi sullo scenario "forte mitigazione" del RCP2.6  dell’Ipcc, «La produttività della esca nelle zone economiche marine dei Paesi diminuirebbe tra il 2,8% e il 5,3% entro il 2050». Secondo il modello RCP8.5 "business as usual", «La diminuzione potrebbe variare entro lo stesso periodo dal 7% al 12,1%».

La Fao evidenzia che «Le maggiori diminuzioni sono attese nelle zone economiche marine dei Paesi tropicali, soprattutto nel Pacifico meridionale, mentre nelle regioni a latitudine più elevata il potenziale di cattura probabilmente aumenterà».  Inoltre, «Anche nelle zone in cui la produttività sarà negativa, le catture di pesce potrebbero continuare a crescere, se i Paesi attueranno adeguate misure di adattamento e regimi di gestione della pesca efficaci».

Il rapporto spiega che «Cambiamenti nei livelli di cattura avverranno in parte a causa delle specie ittiche che cambiano la loro distribuzione geografica per rispondere ai cambiamenti climatici. Questo è già stato ben documentato nell'Atlantico nord-orientale e nord-occidentale e anche per il tonno di alto valore.  I cambiamenti nei modelli di distribuzione e migrazione di questo pesce potrebbero avere un impatto significativo sui redditi nazionali dei paesi da esso economicamente dipendenti, in particolare dei piccoli stati insulari in via di sviluppo della regione del Pacifico. Man mano che questi cambiamenti di distribuzione delle specie avranno luogo, saranno necessari nuovi accordi tra i pescatori all'interno delle flotte pescherecce nazionali e tra i Paesi per consentire risposte coordinate».

Gli impatti produttivi sulle acque interne varieranno da luogo a luogo, «ma nessuna regione del mondo ne sarà immune», avverte la Fao. Il rapporto fornisce stime su come cambierà il clima, l'uso dell'acqua e lo stress sulla popolazione in 149 Paesi, e analizza l'evoluzione futura dei fiumi Yangtze, Gange e Mekong in Asia; il bacino del Congo e il sistema dei Grandi Laghi in Africa; i laghi interni della Finlandia in Europa; i bacini de Rio della Plata e del Rio delle Amazzoni in Sud America.

Per quanto riguarda l'acquacoltura di acqua dolce, i Paesi più vulnerabili sono considerati il Vietnam, il Bangladesh, il Laos e laCina, mentre per l'acquacoltura marina  Norvegia e  Cile rischiano una crisi, a causa portata dei loro sistemi di piscicoltura marina e della loro dipendenza da poche specie.

Il rapporto illustra una serie di opzioni per l’adattamento: «Esistono già una serie di strumenti di gestione della pesca che possono essere utilizzati per rispondere ai cambiamenti climatici, ma molti dovranno essere riorganizzati per rispondere a esigenze specifiche in contesti specifici».  Per «garantire che gli adattamenti siano sinergici e non portino a un disadattamento», la Fao li raggruppa in tre categorie: risposte istituzionali e di gestione; rafforzamento e diversificazione dei mezzi di sostentamento delle persone; attenuazione dei rischi e sostegno alla capacità di risposta.

Lìsagenzia Onu conclude: «La sfida dei cambiamenti climatici può essere affrontata e il nuovo rapporto indica come farlo in modo efficace, riducendo al minimo gli impatti e massimizzando le opportunità».

 

L'articolo Pesca, Fao: «I cambiamenti climatici trasformeranno gli ecosistemi marini e d’acqua dolce» sembra essere il primo su Greenreport: economia ecologica e sviluppo sostenibile.


          One amazing photo with Trump and NATO leaders says it all      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NATO leaders family photo

  • A "family photo" from the NATO summit in Brussels perfectly captures the awkwardness and tensions overshadowing this year's gathering.
  • President Donald Trump has consistently attacked his NATO allies for their spending levels and trade practices on Twitter in the weeks leading up to the summit.
  • European Union President Donald Tusk told Trump: "Appreciate your allies, after all, you don't have that many."

World leaders are currently gathered in Brussels, Belgium for the 2018 NATO summit, and after last month's rocky G7 summit, there are no shortage of tensions to be resolved.

This "family photo" of NATO members looking uncomfortable and askance in different directions seem to perfectly capture the significant differences in opinion and conflicts overshadowing the summit.

While the United States and Europe have historically been close military and economic allies, President Donald Trump has upended that order by repeatedly taking Europe to task over defense spending and trade while pursuing a closer US relationship with adversary Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the photo were: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump, and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

While on his way to the summit, Trump fired off a series of confrontational tweets accusing his NATO allies of stiffing the US by not paying their fair share to contribute to NATO's budget, and lamenting the trade imbalance between the US and the European Union.

"NATO benefits Europe far more than it does the US," Trump wrote. "By some accounts, the US is paying for 90% of NATO, with many countries nowhere close to their 2% commitment. On top of this the European Union has a Trade Surplus of $151 Million with the US, with big Trade Barriers on US goods. NO!"

Currently, NATO members are encouraged to put a target of 2% of their economic output to the Organization's budget, but the 2% figure is only a guideline. There isn't a penalty for not meeting it, but Trump has repeatedly castigated Germany in particular for not spending enough, in his view, on defense.

Before the summit, European Union President Donald Tusk hit back at Trump for his "daily" criticisms of Europe, pointing out that the EU spends more on defense than Russia and almost as much as China, and telling him to "appreciate your allies. After all, you don't have that many."

Tusk and other NATO members are also concerned about the security implications of Trump's friendly relationship with Putin, who he publicly praises more than his European partners. Trump and Putin are set to meet on July 16 in Finland.

          Quem ainda não sacou o PIS/Pasep pode ter ainda mais dinheiro para retirar      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Quem trabalhou com carteira assinada entre 1971 e 1988 e não sacou o fundo PIS/Pasep que lhe é de direito até 29 de junho terá um pequeno rendimento, de 8,97%, sobre o valor disponível.

É que o cronograma de saques é interrompido em julho para que o Governo faça justamente o cálculo da correção do fundo. O valor volta a ser liberado em 14 de agosto. Entenda em quais critérios você precisa se enquadrar para receber o dinheiro.

Rendimento do PIS/Pasep em agosto

dinheiro mao poupanca 216 400x800

O dinheiro do fundo PIS/Pasep volta a ser liberado para os cotistas que tenham contas na Caixa Econômica Federal (no caso do PIS) e no Banco do Brasil (Pasep) a partir de 8 de agosto. O pagamento para os outros beneficiados será liberado a partir de 14 de agosto e segue disponível até 29 de setembro.

O Governo anunciou que o rendimento calculado é de 8,97% sobre o valor. Ou seja, se no dia 30 de junho de 2018 você tinha R$ 1 mil na conta, vai receber mais R$ 89,74 a mais. Quem precisou tirar o dinheiro antes não terá direito a esse acréscimo.

Quem tem direito?

Nesta fase de pagamentos, trabalhadores de qualquer idade que tiveram carteira assinada entre 1971 e 1988 têm direito de retirar o PIS/Pasep. Isso porque o dinheiro é referente às contas que ficaram inativas a partir da nova Constituição (1988).

Vale lembrar que até 2017, os critérios para sacar esse recurso era em caso de aposentadoria, idade mínima de 70 anos, invalidez (inclusive do dependente), óbito do cotista (o que habilita o herdeiro a sacar) e algumas doenças específicas definidas em normas do Conselho Diretor do fundo.

Agora, com o intuito de injetar R$ 39,3 bilhões na economia, o Governo liberou o saque para o público de todas as idades.

De acordo com o Ministério do Planejamento, em junho, 1,1 milhão de trabalhadores já retiraram o dinheiro, somando R$ 1,5 bilhão em saque. A fase que se encerrou, entretanto, só estava liberada para os cotistas com mais de 57 anos e para aqueles que podem sacar a qualquer momento, por atenderem aos outros critérios (e, neste caso, a idade mínima diminuiu para 60 anos).

Como consultar seu saldo

Para o Pis, a consulta pode ser feita pessoalmente na Caixa Econômica Federal ou no site do banco. É preciso saber o número do CPF ou o número do NIS (que pode ser pesquisado no site do Cadastro Nacional de Informações Sociais, apenas deixando o 'Nome da mãe' como ignorado, na área Inscrição - Filiado).

           Start of production of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in Finland       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The ramp-up for the new A-Class has reached Finland: it began in April at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt, Germany and was followed by the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary in May. The production partner Valmet Automotive has started production of the new A-Class in its plant in Uusikaupunki, the third location in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars, where the new A-Class is produced.”With the ramp-up of the new A-Class in Uusikaupunki, Finland, we are successfully continuing our unrivalled ramp-up cascade. After the lead plant in Rastatt and the Hungarian plant in Kecskemét, our production partner Valmet Automotive has started production of the new A-Class. Within a very short time, our production strategy has enabled us to master the third successful ramp-up of the new A-Class,” says Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain.Mercedes-Benz is continuing its cooperation with Valmet Automotive with production of the new A-Class in Uusikaupunki, Finland. The previous generation of the A-Class has already been rolled off the assembly line there since 2013. In Uusikaupunki the A-Class is flexibly produced on the same line together with the Mercedes-Benz GLC.Extensive conversion work was carried out at the Uusikaupunki plant for the ramp-up of the new A-Class in the body shop as well as in the paint shop and the assembly areas.“We have focused on preparations to secure a fast launch and a high volume production run. We have also benefited from our experiences with the previous A-Class generation and the GLC,” says Pasi Rannus, Senior Vice President Manufacturing, Valmet Automotive.The new A-Class is the first model in the fourth generation of compact cars, and replaces the preceding model produced since 2012. The family of compact cars currently comprises five models: A-Class, B-Class, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, and GLA. An all-new sixth compact model was also recently presented at the trade fair in Beijing: The new long wheelbase A-Class saloon is specially designed to meet the needs of Chinese customers. The new compact car family is to be expanded to a total of eight models.For the start of production of the A-Class, apprentices from the Rastatt plant produced a steering wheel model using modern additive production processes (3D printing). The steering wheel has a screen on which employees can upload messages for the next plant in the ramp-up cascade. The model is passed on from plant to plant like a baton. The Uusikaupunki team was delighted about the greetings from the colleagues in Kecskemét, and likewise prepared a message for the next plant in the start-up cascade. Before the end of this year, a new compact car model will start production in the joint venture COMPAS (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes) plant in central Mexico. Global production of the new Mercedes-Benz compact carsThe current compact car models are produced in a global production network. Rastatt in Germany is the lead plant for compact cars in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars. The Rastatt plant controls the production as well as quality and supplier management on a global basis. It also supports smooth ramp-ups at the other plants by training their employees, for example. Alongside the Finnish production partner Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, the Hungarian Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét and Beijing-Benz Automotive Co. Ltd (BBAC) in China are part of the global compact car production network. In the near future, the joint venture production plant COMPAS (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes) in central Mexico will expand the compact car production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars to five locations on three continents.In the future the Hambach plant in France will also produce a compact Mercedes-Benz electric car under the new product and technology brand EQ, expending the compact car production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars to six sites on three continents. Alongside the lead plant in Rastatt and BBAC in Peking, Hambach is the third location in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars where compact electric cars under the product and technology brand EQ will leave the production line in the future.The new A-Class - benchmark in the compact classThe new A-Class celebrated its world premiere on February 2, 2018, and was presented to a wide audience for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It has been available for order already since March, and had its market launch in Europe in beginning of May.The new A-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz model to feature the completely new MBUX multimedia system - Mercedes-Benz User Experience, which also ushers in a new era in Mercedes me connectivity. A unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. MBUX can be customized if desired and adapts to the user. As a further option, it features intelligent voice control which is activated by the key phrase “Hey Mercedes”.Despite its sporty look, the new A-Class has considerably more utility value, making it as youthful as ever but grown-up like never before. More shoulder, elbow and headroom plus easier access to the rear are clear benefits, as is the larger and more family and recreation-friendly luggage compartment. All-round visibility has also been considerably improved. This enhances both safety and the sense of spaciousness. The new A-Class has the very latest driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, giving it the highest level of active safety in this segment with functions adopted from the S‑Class.The new A-Class is not just filled with many innovations. It is also being produced in a really innovative way using modern technologies, which make the digital factory a fact. As of recently in Rastatt (Germany) and in Kecskemét and now in Uusikaupunki (Finland).

          How are social-emotional and behavioral competences and problems at age 1 year associated with infant motor development? A general population study      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Publication date: May 2018

Abstract

Based on limitations in previous research evidence, we concluded that more research is needed for deeper understanding of how social-emotional and behavioral (SEB) outcomes among infant-toddler-aged children in the general population are associated with early motor development. In this study, we investigated associations between early competencies and problems, as measured by the Brief Infant-Toddler Social and Emotional Assessment (BITSEA), and the timing of achievement of the main gross and fine motor milestones usually attained during the first year of life in a general population context. The study sample consisted of 515 infants (mean age 12.9 [SD 0.9] months) and their parents (514 mothers, 434 fathers), who were recruited in child health centers in Northern Finland. The infants were divided into two groups, based on their BITSEA screen status, and motor milestone achievement ages were compared across BITSEA screen status No Concern and Of-Concern infants. An Of-Concern screen status on the maternal and paternal Competence scale and Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) item cluster was associated with later infant achievement ages for gross motor milestones. By contrast, infants who were screened to be in the Of-Concern range on the maternal Problem scale achieved gross motor milestones earlier than infants with the corresponding No Concern screen status. No significant associations were found between the paternal Problem scale screen status and infant motor development. In further analyses, the strongest associations were found between an Of-Concern screen status on the paternal Competence scale and ASD item cluster and infant motor development. The findings indicate that the inclusion of infant motor developmental information may assist early identification and the clinical interpretation of parental reports of early SEB problems. Clinical implications of the current findings are discussed in the paper.


          Ringtone : exploring the rise and fall of Nokia in mobile phones / Yves L. Doz and Keeley Wilson.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In less than three decades, Nokia emerged from Finland to lead the mobile phone revolution. It grew to have one of the most recognizable and valuable brands in the world and then fell into decline, leading to the sale of its mobile phone business to Microsoft. This book explores and analyzes that journey and distils observations and learning points for anyone keen to understand what drove Nokia's amazing success and sudden downfall.

With privileged access to Nokia's senior managers over the last twenty years followed by a more concerted research agenda from 2015, the authors describe and analyze, the various stages in Nokia's journey. The book describes leaders making strategic and organizational decisions, their behavior and interactions, and how they succeeded and failed to inspire and engage their employees. Perhaps most intriguingly, it opens the proverbial 'black box' of why and how things actually happen at the top of organizations.

Why did things fall apart? To what extent were avoidable mistakes made? Did the world around Nokia change too fast for it to adapt? And, did Nokia's success contain the seeds of its failure?

Residents of California city once known as 'America's foreclosure capital' are set to get monthly $500 stipend, with NO strings attached, in bid to boost local economy

Note:  Only 100 people.  There have been lots of trials of this idea over the years but it has always proved too costly

Stockton, California will become the first city in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, in which 100 residents will be given $500-dollars-a-month, with no strings attached.

The program aims to create a level of income that no one will fall beneath.

By providing impoverished residents a regular sum of money that they can use on anything they wish, be it food, clothes, gas, or [drugs] starting a new venture, those behind the program believe it could go a long way to give people enough support to try out new ideas.

The program in Stockton, which was once known as America's foreclosure capital, will see the program launched by 2019, and the payments will continue to the individuals chosen for the program for a full 18-months.

The Stockton UBI program has heavy backing from one of the wealthiest areas of the country- Silicon Valley, according to CNN Money.

The idea is, in part, to off-set the economic distress the growing automation industry is expected to cause to American laborers, as well as a way to potentially reduce poverty.

One of the backers for the Stockton UBI program is Facebook's co-founder Chris Hughes, whose organization, the Economic Security Project, contributed $1 million to the Stockton initiative.

'It is such a fundamental idea behind America that if you work hard, you can get ahead, and you certainly don't live in poverty. But that isn't true today, and it hasn't been true in the country for decades,' Hughes told CNN Money.

'I believe that unless we make significant changes today, the income inequality in our country will continue to grow and call into question the very nature of our social contract.'

One-in-four people in the city of more than 300,000 live in poverty, with the median  household income sitting at $49,271, compared to $57,617 nationally.

The city's inhabitants are also largely minorities with 70 per cent identifying themselves as such.

'Stockton is a city that looks a lot like the rest of America,' said Natalie Foster, co-founder and co-chair of the Economic Security Project.

Several heavy hitters in Silicon Valley have touted the importance of exploring funded programs for those living in poverty, such as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

'We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure that everyone has a cushion to try new ideas,' Zuckerberg said at a Harvard commencement address in May 2017.

'We have a bunch of folks starting off life already behind, born into communities that don't have a lot of opportunity,' said Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs.

'My mom always used to say, 'You have to get out of  Stockton.' ... But I want Stockton to be a place people want to live in.'

And a real fear for cities like Stockton is the 'looming threat of automation and displacement,' as Tubbs puts it.

He says the companies that are building these technologies, like the ones in Silicon Valley, ultimately 'have a responsibility to make sure people aren't adversely impacted and also make their communities better places.'

'I've watched the tech community become very interested in Universal Basic Income for the past several years. I think it stems from one part guilt and one part optimism,' Foster said.

'These are folks who believe in the moonshot, believe in the big ideas, and that nothing is too big.'

Meanwhile existing cash transfer programs such as one in Alaska- where for the past 40-years residents receive varying annual cash payment from oil royalties- are being looked at as an example of the possibilities UBI could hold for under-served communities. 

'They use it to save for education, to get them through seasonal changes in their work, or to pay for heating during the winter when that gets much more expensive,' Foster said.

Similar UBI programs have been tested around the world by various organizations such as in Finland, Italy, Uganda, Cambodia and India.

For example in Finland, a monthly stipend of 560 euros was given to 2,000 unemployed people between the ages of 25 and 58. In Cambodia, $5 a month went to pregnant women and children.

'I believe Islam killed my daughter': A grieving mother tells how her daughter cut off all contact with family and friends to marry an older Muslim man who left her on a bathroom floor for FIVE DAYS to die

Siobhann Brown had not heard from her eldest daughter since she called five years earlier saying she was converting to Islam to get married and have her first child. Then two Victoria Police detectives arrived at her door.

Ashlee Brown, 25, had been found dead on her bathroom floor with more than 100 blunt and sharp force injuries covering most of her body.

The mother of three children under five had been bound, gagged and had her long strawberry blonde hair cut off. 

Ashlee's husband Mohamed Naddaf, 37, told police he had found his wife in that state in their garage about five days earlier but chose to 'care' for her in the bathroom rather than call Triple 0.

Ms Brown had to run out of her house in disbelief when she heard how her daughter died. She is now faced with Naddaf pleading guilty to manslaughter, without ever going to trial.

'Ashlee was a fun-loving girl,' Ms Brown told Daily Mail Australia. 'She was giving. She was loving. She loved the sun, the beach. She loved singing, dancing, having fun.'

Ashlee had been raised in country Victoria as a 'typical Aussie girl' and gradually grew restless as she hit her late teenage years.

She took increasingly regular trips to Melbourne, once returning to introduce her family to Mohamed Rannaf when she was was about 18. 'She introduced him as "Macca",' Ms Brown said. 'It was very brief.

'He seemed like a nice, very polite, young man. It pains me to say that. I didn't see him again after that.'

There was no communication for some time before a phone call came 'out of the blue' that would herald the end of all contact between Ms Brown and her daughter.

When Ashlee was about 20 she rang to say she was pregnant and wanted her mother's blessing to convert to Islam and marry Mohamed.

'She said to me, "Mum, I need your blessing to become Muslim". She said "I'm three months' pregnant and I'm engaged to Mohamed. I would really like to marry him, mum, and settle down and have a baby".

'I said to her, "Darling, I don’t know anything about the Muslim religion. As long as you know what you're doing. 'I said, "Do you have to wear one of those burqas or hijabs? I didn't know what they were called.

'She said, "No mum, only when I go into the mosque because it's disrespectful for a woman to show her face before God".

'I said to Ashlee, "As long as you're making a fully informed decision and it's what you really want".'

Ashlee said that it was.

'There was a pause after that,' Ms Brown said. 'She said. "Thank you, mum". And then her voice seemed to change and she said, "It's Islam". That didn't mean anything to me at the time.

'We said goodbye to each other and we hung up and I didn't hear from Ashlee again.'

Ms Brown said she was convinced the lack of subsequent contact with Ashlee was solely down to her religious conversion and Rannaf controlling his wife. 'I believe Islam killed my daughter,' the 46-year-old said.

'If I could have taken that phone call back I would have not have given her my blessing. I would have said "No, sorry love".

Police initially charged Naddaf with assault and false imprisonment, after paramedics found her dead in the couple's home at Craigieburn, in Melbourne's north, on November 6, 2016.

They later accused Naddaf of killing his wife, but then prosecutors agreed to let him plead guilty to manslaughter.

Italy turns away ITALIAN ship from its ports because it had rescued migrants as anti-migrant minister condemns 'do-gooders'

Italy has turned away an Italian ship from its ports because it had rescued migrants - as the country's anti-migrant interior minister blasted 'do-gooders.'

A commercial ship that supplies oil platforms off the coast of Libya pulled 66 migrants to safety on Monday, but it was told not to bring them to Italy, an Interior Ministry source said.

Italy was sticking to a hardline policy on new arrivals as it presses European allies to share the burden of hosting an influx of displaced people.

Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli, who oversees the coast guard and the country's ports, said the migrants had been transferred to an Italian coast guard vessel on Tuesday after some of them threatened the lives of the Italian crew.

They will be brought to Italy, one source said, though the interior ministry source would not confirm.

The commercial ship picked up the migrants though it had been told Libyan patrol boats were coming to retrieve them, the interior ministry source said.

Meanwhile,  Italy's hard-line, anti-migrant interior minister Matteo Salvini challenged the 'do-gooders' who want to open Italy's ports to migrants to visit the San Ferdinando slum in Reggio Calabria.

He vowed to enforce only 'limited, controlled and qualified' immigration as he toured a crime-laden migrant shantytown in the southern Calabria region.

There, he heard of shameless farmers exploiting migrant workers and women being forced into prostitution to get by. Last month, a migrant was killed in San Ferdinando by his former boss.

'The Libyan ports are more than safe and as minister I can guarantee you that the good times are over for the traffickers,' Salvini added during a visit to a camp for migrant fruit and vegetable pickers in the southern region of Calabria.

Salvini has launched a crackdown on migration, closing Italy's ports to aid groups that rescue migrants and vowing to renegotiate the terms of European missions in the Mediterranean to prevent migrants from disembarking in Italy.

The move comes two days before a meeting of European interior ministers in the Austrian city of Innsbruck, where German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer wants his far-right Italian counterpart to agree to take back migrants who arrive at its borders from Italy.

'What is certain is that for Italy there is no plan to take back who has gone abroad. It's the last thing that could happen,' Salvini said in an interview with Il Messaggero newspaper.

'If the Germans and the Austrians are thinking only about sending migrants back to us, helping us close the external borders first would be a step forward,' he said.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government teetered on the brink of collapse last week as Seehofer's Bavarian conservatives demanded a unilateral tightening of German border controls that she was prepared to concede only in the framework of a European agreement.

Italy's new government, which took office on June 1, has helped thrust immigration back on to the European agenda by closing its ports to humanitarian ships that rescue migrants off the coast of Libya, and it has so far refused to accept migrants sent back from the German border.

Thieves Find Riches in Golden State’s Prop 47

Many Californians had high hopes for Proposition 47, a ballot initiative passed in November 2014 with 60 percent voter approval. The measure reduced penalties for some crimes, including certain drug violations, and helped relieve overcrowding in state prisons.

But while Prop 47 succeeded in meeting those objectives, it also triggered a wave of “smash-and-grab” motor-vehicle burglaries and a surge of retail shopliftings. For this reason, Prop 47 has earned the dishonor of receiving Independent Institute’s fifth California Golden Fleece® Award, recognition given quarterly to state or local government programs or laws that swindle taxpayers or break the public trust.

By raising the monetary threshold for a felony theft to $950 in property value, up from $500 before the measure passed, Prop 47 lowered thieves’ expected cost of criminal violations. Thus, “Prop 47 de-prioritizes justice for California residents and businesses, who are now increasingly victims of vandals and thieves operating with near impunity,” writes Independent Institute Senior Fellow Lawrence J. McQuillan, in his new report, California Property Crime Surge Is Unintended Consequence of Proposition 47.

After delving into the damage caused by Prop 47, the report issues several recommendations. These include lowering the threshold for a felony to property valued at closer to the pre-Prop-47 amount of $500. Also, when sentencing a thief, courts should be allowed to consider the total combined value of all stolen property across multiple incidents. Law enforcement should make property crimes a higher priority, pursuing arrests even for small crimes, so that track records of criminal activity are established.

Ultimately, people will help by reporting more crimes when they gain more confidence that law enforcement is taking the problem more seriously. Residents and businesses should also invest more in security technology and use social media to monitor and discourage criminal activity. “Property crimes produce true victims, McQuillan writes. “Californians deserve a legal system that provides true justice.”

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Il terzo tentativo invece scivola dalle mani andando sprecato, seguito da tre nulli. Ottavo posto per lei, ma finale a otto raggiunta, e non è poco. Nelle semifinali dei 100 nessuno scampo per Lorenzo Paissan, giunto settimo in 10.73 (+0.1). Miglior tempo per Schwartz con 10.19. Ma come vedremo, il meglio deve ancora arrivare. Impegnata nella prima semifinale dei 400 Elisabetta Vandi si esibisce in una distribuzione da manuale con incremento sula retta finale a guadagnare il quarto posto. Difficilmente basterà per essere ripescata alla finale (su questo vi informeremo) ma il tempo di 53.24 è un personale fantastico. Acquista su Amazon.it -15% Preparazione atletica e riabilitazione.

Primo aggiornamento della sessione pomeridiana della seconda giornata di mercoledì 10 luglio dei Campionati Mondiali Juniores-U20 di Tampere 2018, in corso di svolgimento fino a domenica 15 nella città finlandese. Qui trovate iscritti, orario e Streaming. E partiamo subito da una grande delusione. Mattia Montini si presentava al via delle semifinali dei 110hs in condizioni di forma straripante. Nel mirino senz’altro il PB di 13.49 ma forse anche il record italiano di Perini (13.30). Partito come una scheggia, davanti all’arrogante americano Poole che poi vincerà la batteria in 13.69, il lecchese ha toccato una barriera (ci sembra la quinta) quanto basta per perdere coordinazione e giocarsi così la finale. Il tempo finale sopra i 14 rimarrà negli annali ma non ha rilevanza. Nelle semifinali degli 800 femminili, Federica Cortesi (PB 2.06.75) fa quello che può in una batteria assassina, lanciata su ritmi sub-60. Passata sui 60.5 crolla nel secondo giro e chiude settima in 2.09.85. Eloisa Coiro si ritrova in un’altra batteria assurda. Qui addirittura il passo viene lanciato sotto i 28 e 56.70 ai 400! Nel secondo giro (passaggio 60.3 per lei) si batte ma non recupera oltre il sesto posto. 2.06.85 il suo tempo finale, ma non facile [...]

Qui trovate iscritti, orario e Streaming. Partiamo dalle qualificazioni del peso di cui vi avevamo già anticipato qualcosa nel’ultimo update. Sydney Giampietro ha ottenuto 15,20 (non 15,23 come erroneamente comunicato prima) che è comunque bastato abbondantemente per qualificarsi alla finale (il limite era 15,50). Da notare però il 17,02 della fenomenale Alyssa Wilson, mentre dietro sono tutte ammassate in un metro, dai 15 ai 16,02. Nelle batterie Alessia Carpinteri si ferma a 11.85 e fallisce la qualificazione per due centesimi, il tempo della quarta, mentre Margherita Zuecco con 11.75 passa proprio col quarto posto in quinta batteria. Infine il martello in cui schieriamo una carta molto importante: Giorgio Olivieri. E qui arriva una cocente delusione, perché il marchigiano solitamente molto continuo nelle prestazioni, incontra una giornata nerissima e dopo due nulli, rientra di un soffio alla terza prova, sfiorando la gabbia, ma l’attrezzo atterra a 67,29, quasi dieci metri sotto i suoi standard.

Il suo precedente PB era di 47.35 e non ci sembra aver dato tutto. Fantastico Edoardo Scotti, che con un rettilineo finale in cui sembrava un’aquila tra i passerotti lima mezzo secondo allo stagionale e ben 35 centesimi al PB (ex-record italiano allievi) del 2017.

Ci dedichiamo chiaramente alla finale del giavellotto femminile che per la prima volta presenta due azzurre entrambe con possibilità di medaglia: Carolina Visca e la sorpresa Sara Zabarino, autrice di un notevole 53,99 e leader delle qualificazioni. La gara si mette subito in salita con tre atlete che salgono sopra i 55 e le nostre due ai piedi del podio. POi sarà un lungo inseguimento senza esito. All’ultimo lancio Carolina trova una buona spallata per migliorarsi fino a 53,84 ma non basta. È quarta e visibilmente delusa, davanti a Sara Zabarino quinta conb 52,98. Vince l’ucraina Shuklh nonstante un infortunio nel finale, con 55,95, poi Kuwazoa mentre il bronzo della Baker vale 55,04. Rimane qualche rammarico per la Visca che quest’anno ha lanciato 56,79.

          5 Tips Seks yang Terbukti Sukses Bikin Wanita Lebih Sering Orgsme      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Ada satu studi yang mengatakan, untuk bisa lebih mudah dan sering orgasme, wanita perlu "mematikan otaknya" saat sedang berhubungan seks, alias berhenti memikirkan hal-hal lain. Sayangnya, hal ini bukanlah sesuatu yang bisa dilakukan.

Studi tadi muncul karena faktanya, orgasme wanita sering kali menjadi misteri. Bahkan saking sulitnya dicapai, banyak yang percaya, orgasme wanita hanyalah mitos semata. Hal itu tentu tidak benar.

Orgasme wanita itu nyata, bahkan dengan trik tertentu bisa dicapai dengan mudah. Melansir Your Tango, Rabu (11/7/2018), tips seks berikut telah terbukti sukses mengantarkan wanita mencapai klimaks.

1. Mengirim pesan seksi

Sebuah studi baru yang melibatkan 52.000 pria dan wanita menemukan, wanita yang dilaporkan memiliki orgasme yang lebih intens dan lebih sering memiliki kebiasaan mengirim pesan nakal/seksi pada pasangannya.

Lebih serunya lagi, efek positif ini akan meningkat dua kali lipat jika wanita tadi bisa memberikan deskripsi yang cukup mendetil tentang apa yang dia harap akan dilakukan pasangan padanya di ranjang nanti.

Jadi, jika Anda termasuk wanita yang memiliki kesulitan orgasme, mulailah berkirim pesan seks.

2. Mengucapkan tiga kata itu

Ilustrasi orgasme wanita (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

David Frederick, seorang pakar seks mengatakan pada The Guardian, "Komunikasi yang jujur dan eksplisit adalah kuncinya."

Komunikasi di sini bukan sekadar membangun percakapan saja. Untuk memastikan Anda bisa orgasme saat bercinta, cobalah mengatakan tiga kata ajaib itu.

Studi menunjukkan, bilang "Aku cinta kamu" saat sedang berhubungan intim, bisa meningkatkan kemungkinan orgasme Anda secara drastis.

3. Dongkrak percaya diri

Anda akan sulit menikmati kondisi tanpa busana ketika merasa tidak menarik. Jika Anda memiliki masalah kepercayaan diri, dan sering mengiritik penampilan sendiri, coba hentikan hal ini.

Sebuah studi dari Finlandia di tahun 2016 menemukan, wanita yang menyukai dirinya sendiri dan memiliki rasa percaya diri yang tinggi dilaporkan lebih sering orgasme dibanding wanita yang tidak.

Jadi ingat, berlaku baiklah pada diri sendiri, berhenti mengiritiknya. Orgasme juga akan mulai menyukai Anda dan sering datang.

4. Fokus pada apa yang sedang dilakukan

Ilustrasi seks - orgasme (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Orgasme wanita bukanlah sesuatu yang terjadi tanpa sengaja. Tetap butuh usaha untuk mencapainya.

Dengan mengambil waktu beberapa menit untuk menarik napas panjang dan memfokuskan diri sebelum Anda dan pasangan mulai beraksi, Anda bisa jadi lebih fokus.

Ketikan pikiran sudah terpusat, kenikmatan yang diberikan pasangan akan terasa lebih membuai.

5. Cek perasaan sendiri

Coba ambil waktu untuk menillik hubungan Anda. Bagaimana kondisinya?

Menurut para pakar dari Finlandia, orang-orang yang paling bahagia dengan hubungan mereka juga dilaporkan memiliki kehidupan seks terbaik. Termasuk orgasme-orgasme yang selalu memuaskan.

Jadi, jika ternyata hubungan kalian tidak seintim dulu, atau sangat sedikit menghabiskan waktu bersama, benahilah. Memberi waktu untuk menjaga hubungan agar tetap erat tak hanya memastikannya selalu kuat, tapi juga meningkatkan kemungkinan Anda mendapatkan orgasme yang memuaskan.

          Niger: Niger: Country Operation Update, June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Algeria, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan

KEY FIGURES

  • 1,536 Refugees evacuated temporarily from Libya to Niger as part of the ETM (Emergency Transit Mechanism) from November 2017 – June 2018

  • 2,013 Persons profiled by UNHCR in Agadez seeking asylum

  • 17,758 Persons internally displaced in the Tillaberi region

Operational Context

The key situations include:

  1. The Mali situation: began in 2012 with the outbreak of conflict in northern Mail. The regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua bordering Mali and hosting the majority of the refugees are increasingly affected by insecurity and terrorism. A State of Emergency was declared last year, and extended for a further 6 months in February 2018. There are currently 58,035 Malian refugees in Niger. UNHCR aims to support the socio-economic integration of these refugees and the closure of the camps by the end of 2019 through urbanization and other programmes aimed at integration. A regional EU Trust Fund project was recently launched aimed at strengthening the resilience of displaced populations in northern Mali and supporting peaceful coexistence between communities.

  2. The Nigeria situation: began in 2013, with the arrival of the first Nigerian refugees across the border fleeing Boko Haram. The situation deteriorated with the first attacks in Niger territory in 2015. There are over 250,000 displaced persons in the region. The majority live in spontaneous sites or with the local population, while UNHCR manages one refugee camp, with 14,130 people (as of 3 July 2018). Another EU Trust Fund project is ongoing aimed at supporting economic recovery and municipal investments through the construction of durable housing.

  3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The displaced population in the Diffa region is extremely mixed, including refugees, IDPs and Returnees. Efforts are underway to complete biometric registration of all displaced persons, including IDPs, who are often faced with similar protection risks as refugees. However, the IDP situation in Niger has become more complex with increasing insecurity in the region of Tillaberi, bordering Mali. In 2018, attacks and insecurity in the area have resulted in the internal displacement of at least 17,758 people so far. Protection monitoring, advocacy, capacity building sessions and coordinated efforts with humanitarian actors are ongoing to ensure close follow up on the situation.

  4. Mixed Migration: Niger is a major crossroads of migratory movements northwards towards Libya,
    Algeria and the Mediterranean. These migratory flows constitute mixed migration, including economic migrants as well as persons in need of international protection. In Agadez, UNHCR works to identify asylum seekers within the migratory flows and works with the government, as well as IOM and NGOs to provide these persons with information and assistance. 2,013 persons, mostly Sudanese, are currently profiled by UNHCR in Agadez. 24% of them are minors and 202 are unaccompanied or separated children. The situation has become more complex in the last months, with the addition of downward movements from Libya and Algeria.

  5. Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM): This unique programme aims to provide life-saving protection, assistance and long-term solutions to extremely vulnerable refugees trapped in detention in Libya, through temporary evacuation to Niger. The aim is to deliver protection and identify durable solutions, including resettlement for these refugees, who are mainly Eritrean, Somalian, Ethiopian, and Sudanese. Their profiles mainly include survivors of torture or other forms of violence in the country of origin and/or transit countries (e.g. Libya) and others with compelling protection needs. Many of them are unaccompanied children (approximately 260) and women and girls at risk. To date, 1,536 people have been evacuated from Libya to Niger and a total of 203 individuals have departed for resettlement from Niger to France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. Other countries offering resettlement places are Germany, the UK, Finland, Canada,
    Belgium, Malta, Norway and the USA.

          A collaborative editing workshop with virtual and face-to-face rooms. Madness or Brilliance?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 

If you are asking me the question: Can I run a collaborative editing session with 2 face-to-face rooms and 6 online rooms? The answer is yes. You can. I did.

If you are asking me the question: Should I run a collaborative editing session with 2 face-to-face rooms and 6 online rooms? The answer is no… that is insane.

What follows is a story of what I did, why and what I learned.

The Project

As part of the Implement Project we are building a site to simplify the decision process around using technology in higher education delivery. We will have a site which dynamically collects different technologies used in teaching from the community which are then linked to different delivery methods to help educators make those decisions. A big part of the project is generating that content so what better way to start collecting case studies and tools than running a collaborative editing session?

The requirements

To plan a collaborative editing session you need to know what you are editing, who is doing it and where they will be.

WHAT – A google sheet containing all of the technologies we have so far.

WHO – As many people as are interested from Imperial College London and University of Brighton as well as people from our extended network.

WHERE – This is where it gets interesting. Imperial College has 5 campuses, University of Brighton has 4 and then there are random colleagues and friends in other countries.

How did we do it?

Despite the geographical limitations we felt very strongly that there needed to be an ‘analogue’ face-to-face component to the session to include people who are less comfortable with technology. So we booked 2 teaching rooms on the main Imperial College London campus. Then after careful consideration and testing we decided that the best tool to facilitate the online component was Big Blue Button (BBB), this was chosen for the simplicity of use, the cost (free) and the WordPress integration which meant it could be incorporated within our existing site. There are other options, for those with a license Blackboard Collaborate would do the job well (in fact the idea for this came from the #ALTC online winter conference where I ran an edit-a-thon session using the Blackboard Collaborate platform), google hangouts also has potential but was discounted because of the need for a google account which may have been prohibitive to some users.

 

You may be wondering at this point how we ended up with 6 virtual rooms (actually 7 but one was a welcome room). The content/potential content for the site is currently held in a single google sheet with over 280 lines (we hope to make this into a database that automatically populates the site but at the moment it is a manual process). Editing this would be a daunting prospect for anyone so we split it into 6 smaller sheets under the headings:

    • technology for assessment, feedback and course management
    • technology for collaboration, sharing, audience response and social media
    • technology for data, programming and reference management
    • technology for multimedia, content, creation, visualisation and simulation
    • technology for students, web searching and personal organisation
    • teaching methodologies

In addition to this we started off the workshop with a ‘welcome room’ which allowed me to make the same presentation to those joining virtually as I was making to those in the face-to-face session. Each of these sheets was given their own BBB page and a specific landing page on the WordPress site.

After the initial presentation the face-to-face audience split into two groups, teaching and technology each facilitated by a colleague and the online participants were able to choose a virtual room which most suited their experience. Each of the virtual rooms was facilitated by 2 moderators to answer questions and promote discussion using the chat windows.

What were the results?

There were 52 online users

  • 45 from London
  • 5 from Brighton
  • 1 from Iver (Bucks)
  • 1 from Finland (I have a friend working at University of Helsinki)

Visitors to the virtual rooms were split as follows

  • Technology for collaboration (sharing, audience response, social media) – 36
  • Technology for assessment, feedback and course management – 34
  • Teaching Methodologies – 28
  • Technology for multimedia (content, creation, visualisation, simulation) – 22
  • Technology for data, programming and reference management – 14
  • Technology for students, web searching and personal organisation – 11

The collaborative editing of the online sheets gathered information on about 45 different technologies.

The face-to-face workshop had over 20 people moving in and out of the two rooms and generated 71 post-it notes.

This was a much better response than I imagined and we are now working through the process of updating the site to include all of the new information.

 

 

Lessons learned

There were a few take home messages from this event.

  1. While it is possible to run a virtual session and a face-to-face one simultaneously it may not be advisable. I was encouraged to see people in the face-to-face sessions using the online spaces share content however I think this was of limited benefit to either group.
  2. Splitting the virtual rooms was a mistake. During the welcome presentation there was a good amount of activity in the online chat window, admittedly mostly from people saying they couldn’t hear me, and I think that connection was lost when the online participants moved into other rooms. I am unsure, however, how it would have worked to push people to multiple sheets from the same virtual room. I do remain convinced that the sheets needed to be split as the master sheet would have been overwhelming.
  3. Moderators are key. This was learned from the first experience with the #ALTC presentation where they provided a moderator for the room. That person was the single most important thing to the smooth running of the session. Any session that is being run primarily through instant messenger (which I strongly recommend) needs more than one person to keep watch on the comments and respond to questions and discussion points.
  4. Instant messenger not only reduces the strain on bandwidth and minimises background noise but if you are using the right platform you will be able to download the chat window for later review which is critical after an involved discussion.

What next

This session did a great job at providing content for the site but it also served to show us where the gaps are. This means that we can start organising more targeted collaboration sessions that are aimed to answer specific questions. This would not have been possible without first using the edit-a-thon to bring together a community who want to participate. If you have any ideas for the future or would like to share case studies please get in touch through implemntproject.com or @implemntproject

          12 Fenómenos naturales que son más comunes de lo que parecen      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

El planeta en el que vivimos es un lugar único, y la mayoría de las personas desconocemos muchísimos fenómenos naturales que son mucho más comunes de lo que pensamos, solo que algunos de ellos se dan en lugares tan alejados que no podemos percibirlos fácilmente. Pero créenos que vas a querer conocerlos personalmente después de ver estas fotos, porque son sencillamente majestuosos. Desde piedras que viajan solas hasta una tormenta infinita, ¡y lo mejor de todo es que sucede en nuestro mundo! Hicimos una lista de los fenómenos más impresionantes del mundo, con los cuales nuestro planeta nos demuestra una vez más que su capacidad de sorprendernos es infinita. Mira el artículo hasta el final y dinos cuál quieres ver en tus próximas vacaciones. 1. Relámpagos volcánicos o tormenta sucia en Japón Esta es una imagen muy común en las erupciones volcánicas, es un fenómeno natural que se origina por la colisión de fragmentos de rocas, cenizas, y partículas de hielo en una columna de humo. Esto produce una carga similar a la que generan naturalmente los rayos de una tormenta eléctrica, creando estos hermosos paisajes cargados de electricidad. Impresionante, ¿verdad? La fuerza de la naturaleza es directamente proporcional a la capacidad de la mente humana #majestuoso #volcán #tormentasucia A post shared by Diego (@diegogoviedo) on Dec 15, 2015 at 9:11am PST La tormenta sucia se refiere al fenómeno de la naturaleza que provoca rayos en las erupciones volcánicas. Se cree que las cargas eléctricas se generan cuando la ceniza, fragmentos de roca y partículas de hielo en la nube volcánica colisionan, produciendo cargas estáticas. #instaPLANO #noticias #news #internacionales #international #tormenta #storm #tormentasucia #dirtythunderstorm #thunderstorm #trueno #rayo #thunder A post shared by Noticias Plano Informativo (@planoinformativo) on Sep 18, 2014 at 3:15pm PDT Volcán de Japón hace erupción con rocas calientes y rayos #volcan #erupcion #rayosvolcanicos #magma #shinmoedake Más información en codigooculto.com A post shared by CODIGO OCULTO (@codigooculto) on Apr 7, 2018 at 8:51am PDT 2. Extrañas rocas esféricas de la playa de Moeraki, Nueva Zelanda Estas impresionantes rocas esféricas de diferentes tamaños que a simple vista parecen huevos de dragón, o meteoritos caídos, son en realidad uno de los mayores atractivos que puedes encontrar al dar un paseo por la playa de Koekohe, en Moeraki (Nueva Zelanda). Básicamente son formaciones cálcicas compactas de barro (lodo y arcilla) de hace millones de años, que surgieron en el período del Pleistoceno. Su forma esférica indica su alto contenido de calcio, y el hecho de que son blandas por dentro y duras por fuera. These ‘big stones’ simply dont fail to attract photographers around the world to come take a picture of it 😅#photooftheday #moerakiboulders #stones #beach #newzealand #ocean #canon80d #1635mm A post shared by Cindy Loo (@cloosnaps) on May 20, 2018 at 4:15am PDT Beautiful radiating patterns captured by @lake_of_tranquility at the Moeraki Boulders.

Whether you believe they’re a geological marvel or “eel baskets” that were scattered after the sinking of an enormous canoe (as per Maori legend), they’re still none the less impressive to see. . As the tide sweeps out from the beach, more and more of these naturally spherical rocks appear for as far as the eye can see – a magnet for tourists and photographers from around the region. . . #Moeraki #Dunedin #Hampden #MoerakiBoulders #Maori Tag @nomad.travels to be featured!

Cataratas submarinas Estos hermosos fenómenos son ilusiones ópticas semejantes a cascadas bajo el mar, producidas básicamente por la acumulación de grandes depósitos de arena y lodo. Pueden apreciarse desde el aire, donde realmente tenemos la impresión de estar contemplando una catarata submarina que, en realidad, no es eso. Realmente es un deleite de la naturaleza para cualquier persona. #islamauricio 🏝️, conocida también como #isladelafortuna.

Bueno, pues este extraño y hermoso fenómeno sucede en varios lugares a nivel mundial, pero en Latinoamérica especialmente se puede apreciar en el desierto más árido del mundo: en Atacama, Chile.

Tormenta eterna de relámpagos Este privilegiado lugar ubicado de Ologá, Venezuela, ha sido declarado como la capital mundial de los refucilos, ya que tiene un inmenso lago iluminado con luces naturales que jamás lo abandonan. Estos impresionantes relámpagos aparecen y desaparecen constantemente en las noches entre abril y noviembre, ¡todo un milagro de la naturaleza! Al año ocurren, en promedio, 297 tormentas eléctricas, por lo cual los residentes ya están bastante acostumbrados a ese fenómeno, pero no deja de ser bastante llamativo para los turistas.

Flores de hielo en la Antártida Las superficies heladas del Mar Ártico nos ofrecen impresionantes espectáculos, entre ellos, estas hermosas “flores de hielo”. Este fenómeno natural se produce gracias a que la sal de la superficie del mar se cristaliza por las bajas temperaturas. Su proceso de formación se inicia desde su núcleo y a medida que va teniendo contacto con la escarcha va tomando la forma de una flor. 🌹❄¿Sabías que existen las Flores de Hielo? La rápida congelación del vapor de agua convierte el océano en un inmenso jardín de hermosas flores de hielo salado . Las aguas de los océanos Ártico y Antártico no solo esconden numerosos secretos en sus profundidades, sino que en ocasiones ofrecen hermosos e inusuales espectáculos sobre su superficie. Uno de ellos son las conocidas como flores de hielo. Estas extrañas formaciones que pueden llegar a ocupar vastas extensiones de hielo marino tienen su origen en el vapor de agua que se escapa a través de pequeñas fisuras del hielo superficial. Al entrar en contacto con el aire frío y cargado de humedad, el vapor se congela sin pasar por el estado líquido, cristalizando de forma que da origen a estas curiosas estructuras en un proceso conocido como «nucleación».

Lava azul El volcán Kawah Ijen, ubicado en la isla indonesia de Java, emana una impresionante lava azul de color brillante. Un tono bastante inusual, ¿verdad?

          Periodistas de 61 países se acreditan para cubrir la cumbre Putin-Trump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
HELSINKI (Sputnik) — Más de 1.400 periodistas de 61 Estados se acreditaron para trabajar en la cumbre ruso-estadounidense que se celebrará el 16 de julio en Helsinki, informó la agencia de noticias STT alegando datos de la Cancillería finlandesa.
          One amazing photo with Trump and NATO leaders says it all      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NATO leaders family photo

  • A "family photo" from the NATO summit in Brussels perfectly captures the awkwardness and tensions overshadowing this year's gathering.
  • President Donald Trump has consistently attacked his NATO allies for their spending levels and trade practices on Twitter in the weeks leading up to the summit.
  • European Union President Donald Tusk told Trump: "Appreciate your allies, after all, you don't have that many."

World leaders are currently gathered in Brussels, Belgium for the 2018 NATO summit, and after last month's rocky G7 summit, there are no shortage of tensions to be resolved.

This "family photo" of NATO members looking uncomfortable and askance in different directions seem to perfectly capture the significant differences in opinion and conflicts overshadowing the summit.

While the United States and Europe have historically been close military and economic allies, President Donald Trump has upended that order by repeatedly taking Europe to task over defense spending and trade while pursuing a closer US relationship with adversary Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the photo were: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump, and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

While on his way to the summit, Trump fired off a series of confrontational tweets accusing his NATO allies of stiffing the US by not paying their fair share to contribute to NATO's budget, and lamenting the trade imbalance between the US and the European Union.

"NATO benefits Europe far more than it does the US," Trump wrote. "By some accounts, the US is paying for 90% of NATO, with many countries nowhere close to their 2% commitment. On top of this the European Union has a Trade Surplus of $151 Million with the US, with big Trade Barriers on US goods. NO!"

Currently, NATO members are encouraged to put a target of 2% of their economic output to the Organization's budget, but the 2% figure is only a guideline. There isn't a penalty for not meeting it, but Trump has repeatedly castigated Germany in particular for not spending enough, in his view, on defense.

Before the summit, European Union President Donald Tusk hit back at Trump for his "daily" criticisms of Europe, pointing out that the EU spends more on defense than Russia and almost as much as China, and telling him to "appreciate your allies. After all, you don't have that many."

Tusk and other NATO members are also concerned about the security implications of Trump's friendly relationship with Putin, who he publicly praises more than his European partners. Trump and Putin are set to meet on July 16 in Finland.

          Supercell supera los 8000 millones de dólares con sus dos juegos para móviles      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Clash of Clans y Clash Royale son juegos de éxito en iOS y Android.

Supercell se ha convertido en el primer editor y desarrollador de juegos para móviles en tener dos títulos capaces de superar la barrera de los 8000 millones de dólares en ingresos en la App Store y Google Play. Sus dos títulos, Clash Royale y Clash of Clans, son todo un valor seguro en términos monetarios.

Dos títulos de éxito mundial


Según la firma de análisis y datos de mercado Sensor Tower, Clash Royale habría sobrepasado los 2000 millones en facturación y gastos por jugador desde su lanzamiento en marzo de 2016, siendo un éxito sin igual para la empresa finlandesa. Sin embargo, la verdadera gallina de los huevos de oro siegue siendo Clash of Clans, que habría registrado cifras de 4000 millones de dólares y 2000 millones de dólares en iOS y Android respectivamente, siendo el título de mayor impacto comercial para la empresa.

Vídeo:



Los jugadores de Clash Royale más activos serían los usuarios con cuenta en Estados Unidos, que habrían generado un 30% de esos beneficios e ingresos, seguido por los residentes en Alemania con un 10% y los jugadores franceses, con un 7%. El mercado asiático tiene en China -únicamente con versión en iOS- su principal exponente con un 6,5% y en Corea del Sur su segundo gran mercado con un 5%.

El tráfico de ambos juegos, sus dedicadas comunidades y la importancia de Clash Royale en los últimos meses en sectores como los eSport -generan más de 70 millones de dólares cada mes con el juego según Sensor Tower-, habrían pavimentado el éxito de la empresa en un mercado que parecía haber entrado en horas bajas.

          Salt Licorice Ice Cream      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In Finland, black licorice gets intensified with a hit of salty, stinging ammonium chloride. Tongue-numbing and herbal, the resulting candy is a popular treat. So popular, in fact, that summertime in Finland now means salt licorice ice cream.

Salt licorice ice cream comes in many forms: scoops, soft serve, and ice-cream bars. Fazer, a candy company, makes their ice cream bars in the same shape as their iconic salt licorice candy. While the sweet, salty ice cream itself is a deep gray, it's often covered in an inky-black coating. 

Stunned non-Finns (and there are many, as shown in this commercial from Fazer) may wonder how such a flavor came to be in the first place. Ammonium chloride, as it happens, has been used in cough medicine. Licorice is also prized for its medicinal qualities, and in the early 20th century had its heyday as a popular flavoring. It’s likely the two ingredients met over the pharmacy counter.

If you've ever taken a photo in low light you've probably encountered the grainy effect that can dilute the finished product. A new AI tool could prove an incredibly easy way to remove this so-called noise, with the ability to automatically produce a clean image after analyzing only the corrupted version.

Melania Trump Hangs with Nato Spouses

First lady Melania Trump embarked on a European tour with her husband, President Donald Trump, this past week for diplomatic visits throughout several countries in Europe. The Trumps touched down in Brussels, Belgium, on Tuesday – their first stop of the tour. They relaxed on Tuesday and attended the NATO annual summit on Wednesday. Some of the other countries they plan on going to include the UK, Scotland, and Finland. While the Trumps travel together, Melania has a separate tour schedule of events with and without her husband.

According to CNN, Melania was joined by the other 10 NATO spouses, all of them wives and one husband – First Gentleman of Luxembourg Gauthier Destenay. Melania enjoyed “a concert, a chocolate tasting by the Belgian royal family’s official chocolatier and a fashion display that included hats by Belgian milliner Fabienne Delvigne.”

          What Is Happening to the West?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This week, President Donald Trump is in Europe meeting with his NATO counterparts before rendezvousing with Vladimir Putin in Finland. The combination of an American president who seems to disdain democracy and admire the Russian leader, the ongoing specter of Brexit, and the rise of right-wing populism and authoritarianism all over the continent have understandably made many people frightened about the future of what is grandly called “the West”—not to mention the military and political alliances that have helped ensure its stability.

Now, therefore, seemed like a good time to talk to Adam Tooze, the author of numerous works of European history and the director of the European Institute at Columbia University. (His forthcoming book is Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World.) During the course of our conversation, which has been edited and condensed for clarity, we discussed why historical parallels to the 1930s are so flawed, how center-right parties helped abet the rise of the far right, and why Trump is less of a threat to Europe than people think.

Isaac Chotiner: If you look back at European history, how would you define and locate this European moment?

Adam Tooze: I’m not sure that I find the efforts to locate our current moment in relation to previous moments of dark drama, like 1914 and the 1930s, terribly compelling. Obviously, the present is the product of the historical past, but the sorts of tendencies that I think are at work in Europe today are those we’ve seen at work since the 1970s, broadly speaking: challenges of globalization in all its many facets, the central question of the nation and its possible alternatives. That’s really the context in which the current situation belongs, which obviously is not one that a left liberal centrist like myself would ever have wished on Europe, but I don’t see it as being dramatic in the way that, say, the 1930s were, which is one of the more common analogies right now. That’s really to compare mice and elephants. The 1930s was an existential crisis. I think we’re a very long way away from that at this moment. What we are seeing is the malfunctioning, the breakdown potentially, of the party system that dominated European politics for many decades.

Everywhere I look—from Brexit to Hungary to the rise of a populist government in Italy to Marine Le Pen making the final round in France to what’s happening in Germany right now—it all seems to fit under a similar rubric, which is the rise of right-wing populism. Do you think it’s helpful to put all of these events under the same rubric?

I’m not very compelled by the populism argument. I mean, I think at this point it’s become so much of a meme that it’s beginning to act into the world. Some of the protagonists do identify themselves as populist and they’ve been labeled as such, and so that labeling and that self-identification is beginning to exert effect. What I would agree with is to say that Europe, like the United States, has been subject to some common shocks, and the common shocks one might think of as being things like the financial crisis or the spectacular derailment of Western policy in the Middle East, in North Africa, in Western Asia, and that then creates flows of people and challenges that all these different countries and the EU, NATO, organizations like that, have to deal with.

When those sorts of entities are exposed to those kinds of common shocks, then what you see is national fault lines, national fragilities, manifesting themselves across all of those countries at the same time.

The Brexit disaster is completely predictable given the ambiguities of the relationship of right-wing Brits—and indeed left-wing Brits—to the EU. Now, that’s a completely different phenomenon from reservoirs of extreme nationalist public opinion in Hungary, which draw their historical inspiration from memes and themes of national persecution, which go all the way back to World War I and the dramatic aftermath of World War I. Modern Hungary is a shadow of what it once was, and has been throughout the 20th century, and at certain moments, nationalist politicians in Hungary can mobilize that.

And that isn’t the rhetoric of what we call Italian populism, which in fact has two distinct strands. One is the League, which is a previously regional party, which emerged out of Northern Italian resentment against everything south of Rome, and on the other hand the Five Star Movement, which is an unforeseen type of politics, which is much more modernist in a kind of freaked-out … it’s positively Californian, right, in its belief in tech, and the mechanisms of popular referenda. They then form a coalition, given the logic of European politics, with the League, which allows them both to govern, whilst in Britain the Tories are clinging onto power with the help of the most right-wing parties in Northern Ireland. Both of these are responses to the shocks that Europe has suffered since 2008. Do they add up to the same political phenomenon? I don’t think so, in any reasonable kind of way.

It seems like maybe a way of understanding this—and I think this would also apply to Trump—is that in all these different countries, these forces to one extent or another have always existed, even if the forces themselves are somewhat distinct. Then a common crisis or crises in the world allows them to reach a certain level of electoral success that in normal times they would not.

Yes, and those crises in the world aren’t acts of God or earthquake-type phenomena. Those crises are the result of policymaking by previous generations of people in power. If you want to understand the crisis of the Republican Party, I think a lot of people would agree that there were two big shocks. One is just the disastrous war on terror and the impact in Iraq and Afghanistan, and then the other was the 2008 crisis. Of course, the Republican Party leadership is going to think they’re innocent in generating those two, right? There’s a key element here of failure on the part of elites to just govern effectively. You know, if people are voting for things like Five Star or people are voting for nationalism, for Fidesz in Hungary, they quite rightly consider the preceding incumbent to have just done a shockingly bad job. It isn’t that people have necessarily moved to more extreme positions, but that their willingness to hand power to [those who style] themselves as the centrist, moderate, kind of rational, reasonable politician is just undercut by reality. I mean, why would you trust people to govern, given what a terrible job they’ve done?

A key further element is that in almost all these situations, the right-wing, xenophobic nationalists were always present in all of these societies, but it was contained and to a degree silenced and channeled and stifled by effective elite leadership on the part of centrist right-wing or centrist conservatives. If you think about the Republican Party, they’ve been winning votes since the late ’60s and early ’70s with the Southern strategy, which is basically white resentment against civil rights, and at the same time pursuing a strategy of opening towards global trade. Now, those two things are not really consistent with each other in ideological terms, but if you can somehow square the circle and hold that bracket, you can mobilize majorities. When you fail, then this thing will come apart.

So let’s talk about how responsible politicians should deal with things like the EU or migration. One is to make a case that migration is helpful economically and that it’s not going to necessarily drive up crime, that we can deal with it as a society, that it’s a humanitarian thing, which it seems like Angela Merkel tried do for a while. The other is what everyone in European politics now including Merkel seems to do, which is basically try to win over right-wing or center-right votes by saying, “Oh, yeah, we’re going to get tough on security,” basically trying to approach the far-right position, and dim their appeal. That made sense to me politically, but now my feeling from watching the past several years is that European politicians have basically sold out too much, and now the entire rhetoric on all sides is that migration is dangerous. Once everyone is sort of talking that way, you actually provide fascists and right-wingers more of an opening.

I accept that as a reasonable first take at one level. I think, though, that you are missing something. Everyone can see this rift that you’re correctly identifying, and so I think the key issue here is the word control.

Why Merkel would resist your characterization of her position is that she would say, “I am in no way giving up on the stated position that we have obligations to protect people’s human rights, and that we will honor the asylum commitment that the German constitution requires us to make. Furthermore, I do not retreat from the position that this society needs an influx of migrants, and I will not retreat from the position that diversity per se is a desirable thing for societies to exhibit, and that within society it must be recognized explicitly and valued, because otherwise you exist in a state of denial and then you create antagonism. But,” and this is the crucial thing, “at all times, we must exert control.”

In other words, “We must govern this process, and what we failed do in ’15 was not … you know, we didn’t make a wrong decision, but what we showed was our inability to actually control the flow, and it’s the loss of control that is what really panicked people, created fear. It was fear that the irresponsible populists then pandered to, and so by restoring control and drying up the psychological swamp, this swamp of fear that the populace operated. It looks as though I’m conceding to them, but what I’m actually trying to do is to shift the weather and trying to change the environment such that we can have a rational conversation about this.”

There isn’t a good fix for this problem, so the question is: Do you apply whatever difficult compromise you apply in a context of panic, fear, antagonism, stigmatization, and frankly just post-truth nonsense, or do you try and create the conditions in which one can have a reasonable conversation about what is a profoundly difficult choice that society has to make?

Isn’t the problem, though, that the conditions sometimes will violate international law or necessitate treating migrants poorly, or stopping the free flow of people in the EU?

Yes, absolutely. So then you have to make a series of lesser decisions about how dramatic the situation is. I think what Merkel decided in the fall of ’15, given this nightmarish situation in Syria, was that at this moment, right, you had to take this risk.

Her kind of whistling in the dark, rhetoric of confidence and self-confidence, “We can do this,” was part of a project of trying to say, “Look, let’s just keep calm and carry on and ride out what is a historic storm. This is not something that anyone could foresee. These are not normal conditions, but we have got to do something exceptional under these circumstances.” She was breaching the EU. She was breaching the Dublin agreement in deciding to do what she was doing, and she knew that, I think.

Do you have some hope that, with these new refugee deals and the mainstream parties getting tougher, that at some point the conversation can be restored and the appeal of the right-wing xenophobia can be battened down a little bit?

That is the strategy they’re pursuing, and we have to understand that strategy, because otherwise you do, I think, face this dichotomy that you started us off with by saying, you know, either you wholeheartedly embrace this or you slide towards the fascists. I think that the strategy that the centrists are currently pursuing … and, you know, to be fair to them, it is after all what Brexit was demanding as well: take back control. And control is not the same as fascism, right? Control, a policy of being able to say in a sovereign decision or a proactive decision that, “We think we would like this number of foreigners under these terms, and with due respect to our international obligations, this is the number.”

My concern was just that maybe even that kind of rhetoric in the long run plays into the hands of the fascists, but I see what you’re saying.

My take is that fascism is really a politics of fear rather than control, and certainly the version that we’re seeing right now is just all about fear. It’s all about crisis. The longer we stay in a state of disturbance, the more those parties figure that they can get votes, and so the efforts at control are crucial.

How much do you think European elites and Europe experts see Trump as a threat—an American president who seems to actively dislike Europe, actively dislike the European Union, and actively like the leader who a lot of people consider the biggest threat to the integrity of Europe, Vladimir Putin?

It’s an interesting question. I think threat is a strong word, and one of the problems that Anglophone observers of the EU have is that they just totally underestimate the structure and the stability and the very vastness of this system, and so they’re constantly speculating about things that might break it up or threats that might challenge it and undermine it and tear it apart. You know, this kind of rhetoric of emergency is commonplace.

Now, Trump is, you know, a spectacular shock. In the history of the EU, there’s never been an American president who just didn’t get it, I mean fundamentally didn’t get it. It’s not clear, even to this day, that he understands that bilateral relations between European states and the U.S. don’t really exist anymore, and any important issue, everything, goes through the EU. But I think most European elites think of it as an opportunity, frankly, to in some sense mobilize public opinion around an anti-Trump rally.

He is so unpopular, you’d have to be a pretty bad politician not to want to take advantage of that right now, which is another thing that the Trumpists don’t understand. That once you reach a certain level of unpopularity, then everybody gains from not cooperating with you. Right now, if any European politician were to sell out to Trump or to appear to sell out to Trump, it would be a death warrant. Trump doesn’t pose a threat to the EU. He’s just, you know, an incredibly hostile piece of the environment that the EU has not had to deal with before.

I don’t personally think of Putin as a threat to the EU. Putin would work, I think, perfectly happily with the EU if the EU had been more cooperative with him. That’s not saying I think Putin’s a good actor in the system, but I don’t think Russia is pursuing a strategy of trying to systematically divide the EU. That’s not their game. They want to be able to cooperate in mutually cooperative ways with the Europeans, and it’s quite difficult for them to do it given the nature of their system and the hostility that engenders on the part of many Europeans. It’s probably doomed to frustration, and that will then breed antagonism between the two sides.

I think Trump actually does envision the world without the EU, and it’s completely unreal. I don’t think that’s the game that the Russians are playing. I think they want influence and they want leverage, but they’re not in the business of dismantling. They would love to be able to exert influence. They actually have, I think, a pretty good grasp of what the system is.

I was going to end this, but someone just texted me that Boris Johnson resigned, so it clearly never ends.

Oh, right. I mean, the disintegration of the Tory party is at least on a par with the situation of the Republican Party as a vehicle of government, right? I mean, it’s amazing. I don’t have any particularly wise words about that, but it’s a shame on a once-great political organization.

          Lutheran Churches - St. John's Church / Johanneksenkirkko - Korkeavuorenkatu - Helsinki, Finland      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"St. John's Church (Finnish: Johanneksenkirkko, Swedish: Johanneskyrkan) in Helsinki, Finland is a Lutheran church designed by the Swedish architect Adolf Melander in the Gothic Revival style. It is the largest stone church in Finland by seating capacity.

Situated in the Ullanlinna district of Helsinki, the church was built between 1888 and 1891, the third Lutheran church in Helsinki, and still the biggest. The twin towers are 74 metres in height, and the church seats 2,600 people and has excellent acoustics, and it is therefore used for big concerts and events as well as services. The altarpiece shows Saul's conversion and the painting, called A Divine Revelation, is by Eero Järnefelt, brother-in-law to Jean Sibelius.

Johannes (John) church stands on a hill that for many centuries had been a place for Midsummer bonfires (Midsummer is now also "John's Day", Juhannus in Finnish).

The composer Oskar Merikanto was an organist here for a time."

"Johanneksenkirkko on uusgoottilainen evankelis-luterilaisen ruotsinkielisen Johannes församlingin kirkko Helsingin Ullanlinnassa, keskusta-alueen eteläosassa Korkeavuorenkadun varrella. Kirkko rakennettiin vuosina 1888–1891 ja sen korkeimmat osat ovat 74 metriä korkeat koillispäädyn tornit. Kirkon suunnitteli tukholmalainen arkkitehti Adolf Emil Melander, jonka ehdotus voitti vuonna 1878 järjestetyn kilpailun. Kirkkoon mahtuu 2 600 ihmistä, ja se on paikkaluvultaan Suomen suurin kivikirkko. Kirkko on Suomen uusgoottilaisten kirkkojen pääesimerkki. Alttaritauluna on Eero Järnefeltin 1932 maalaama Taivaallinen näky. Sen aiheena on Jeesuksen opetuslapsia vainonneen Saulus Tarsolaisen eli apostoli Paavalin kääntyminen kristinuskoon Damaskoksen tiellä. Kelloja kirkossa on kolme. Kirkon vihki käyttöön Porvoon piispa Carl Henrik Alopaeus 13. joulukuuta 1891. Kirkon etuseinässä on Kari Juvan veistos Johannes Kastaja vuodelta 2004.

Kirkkoa ympäröi Johanneksenpuisto, jossa on nurmialueita, leikkipuisto sekä hiekkakenttä, joka jäädytetään talvisin.

Arkkitehti Melander suunnitteli itse kirkon penkit, saarnatuolin, alttarilaitteen ja kastepöydän. Koristelussa on käytetty paljon kolmiapila-aihetta, joka on tyypillinen goottilainen pyhän kolminaisuuden symboli. Kirkon sisätilat ovat hyvin koristeelliset lasimaalauksineen, kaari-ikkunoineen, virsitauluineen ja kattokruunuinen. Alun perin myös kirkon vihreänharmaissa, rapatuissa seinäpinnoissa oli niiden yläosissa ja holvikaarissa oli koristekuvioita. Myöhemmissä restauroinneissa (ensimmäisen kerran vuonna 1913) kuviot peitettiin vaalealla yhtenäisellä värillä. Kirkko restauroitiin sen satavuotisjuhlia varten ja silloin vanhasta koristemaalauskerroksesta paljastettiin osa yleisölehterin seinään. Kirkko vaurioitui Helsingin suurpommituksissa helmikuussa 1944; muun muassa useita ikkunoita särkyi."

Le due giavellottiste azzurre, Carolina Visca e Sara Zabarino, chiudono al quarto e al quinto posto. Ottava Sydney Giampietro nel peso e Nadia Battocletti nei 3000 con 9.13.45, terza junior di sempre Quarta Carolina Visca, quinta Sara Zabarino. È questo il verdetto della finale del giavellotto con le due azzurre che restano ai piedi del podio nella seconda giornata dei Mondiali under 20 di Tampere (Finlandia). La romana Visca scaglia l’attrezzo a 53,84 all’ultimo tentativo. Per la biellese Zabarino il miglior lancio è il secondo (52,98), 101 centimetri in meno rispetto alla performance delle eliminatorie. Non basta per salire sul podio: a Carolina e Sara sarebbe servito il 55,04 della statunitense Dana Baker. La campionessa del mondo è l’eptatleta ucraina Alina Shukh (55,95), già oro europeo nelle prove multiple a Tbilisi 2016 tra le under 18 e a Grosseto 2017 tra le under 20. Argento al Giappone in giornata di grazia: Tomoka Kuwazoe 55,66. In termini statistici, mai nessun italiano (uomini e donne) aveva fatto meglio del quinto posto in un Mondiale U18 e U20 (il più “alto” era stato Leonardo Gottardo a Marrakech nel 2005, quinto al mondo tra gli under 18). “Tampere, però, vista dal podio – ammettono un po’ a malincuore le due giovani lanciatrici dopo [...]
